AMERICAN ANCESTRY. 



THE purpose of this work is, principally, to register in a convenient and simple form 
the pedigree of any one person, and thus record for all time many important facts in 
the history of families which would otherwise be lost. Another primary object is to publish 
here the ancestry of a person as complete as it is known, as a means of obtaining additional 
information regarding it. It is also designed to be a convenient work of reference, to show 
the origin of the various American families. However indifferent some may affect to be 
regarding this question of ancestry, those who have a good pedigree will usually have a 
natural pride in it. Many lineages must of necessity contain nothing but simple records 
of uneventful generations, but they will preserve facts of great interest to descendants which 
would otherwise in many cases be lost in the history of a family. The plan of the work is 
somewhat similar in idea to the well-known English works, but altered to suit the conditions 
of American society, and in detail is as follows: 

The surname or family name is given iirst, with the given name, residence, birth place 
and date of birth. This is followed by remarks of a brief biographical character, giving the 
principal events in the individual's life, such as occupation, college degrees if any, author- 
ship, public service, experiences, and if married, date, wife's name and parentage, with 
remarks relating to her ancestry. If the individual whose lineage is given had brothers the 
same facts may be stated respecting each of them, in order of their birth, commencing with 
the eldest. This completes the first generation in tracing back the lineage. Next is given 
the father's name, followed by same class of facts, and so continued back in male line as far 
as can be traced. The name of son, father, grandfather, etc., in direct male line are printed 
in black type. As the abbreviations are all of the most ordinary kind, it is unnecessary to 
mention them here.

Miller Hayes, b. on a farm near Mont- 
pelier Vt. 1782, d. in Marion O. 1849, was 
the youngest of 5 ch., having sturdy 
Christian parents who wisely used means 
for the physical, moral and mental devel- 
opment of their children, he came up to 
manhood with better qualifications for 
business than most men of his time, at 
about the age of 21 he engaged in buying, 
shipping and selling timber and lumber at 
points along the St. Lawrence river, both 
on American and Canadian sides. This 
business he continued with good success 
until the outbreak of the war with Great 
Britain in 1812, when, being compelled on 
account of the war to abandon his lumber 
business, he located at Plattsburg N. Y. 
and engaged in dry goods and general 
merchandise trade, in which he was quite 
successful. About two years before locat- 
ing in Plattsburg he married Sarah, widow 
of John D. Fisk and daughter of Elijah 
Herrick. He must have continued in busi- 
ness in Plattsburg N Y. until about 1818, 
when misfortune came to him as a result 
of having signed cash obligations to a 
large amount for some of his friends who 
failed in business, leaving a large portion 
of their debts for him to pay, and he was 
left, after paying these obligations, without 
sufficient means to continue his mercantile 
business, so he closed it out and moved 



to Tioga co. N. Y., where he engaged in 
farming and dealing in lumber. In 1829 
he left New York State and located on a 
farm in Susquehanna co. Pa. near Mon- 
tone. After about six years spent among 
the stony hills of Pa. he found that farm- 
ing could not be made profitable and be- 
gan looking for a more favorable location. 
Having friends in Ohio who gave him 
very favorable accounts of the fertility of 
the soil and of the prospect of its rapid set- 
tlement and development of a State, he de- 
cided to dispose of his property in Pa. 
and to make the new State of Ohio his 
permanent home. Having sold his prop- 
erty and completed his arrangements for 
his journey he started with his family. 
They traveled first by team and then by- 
canal to Buffalo N. Y., where they took a 
steamboat for Sandusky City Ohio, where 
they arrived in safety after a pleasant lake 
voyage of about three (3) days. From 
Sandusky they were transported by ox 
team some 40 miles southwest and located 
on a farm about two miles south of Mel- 
more. This was in Sep. 1835. They found 
the situation in Ohio very much as they 
expected from the representations of their 
friends. The whole State was, however, 
at that time new, and the greater portion 
of it unbroken wilderness, heavily tim- 
bered, a large tract of land being still held 
and occupied by the Wyandot Indians. 
The roads, such as they were, being almost 
impassable the most of the year. There 
had been very little public improvement; 
mills and factories were few and far be- 
tween, school and church privileges very 
meagre, even in the best of neighborhoods. 
Many difficulties and dangers had to be 
met and overcome by the pioneers, but 
fortunately they, like a large portion of the 
early settlers of Ohio, were men and 
women of remarkable courage and enter- 
prise, good morals and religious principles. 
In 1837 the government obtained posses- 
sion of what had been known as the 
Wyandot Reservation. These lands came 
into market in 1839. Chas. Miller bought 
100 acres of this land, being the northeast 
corner of the Reservation. In the winter

peace and a colonel in the militia, took an 
active part in King Philip's war and was 
in a severe action at Lancaster on July 31, 
1704, " During the whole of this war," 
says Mr. Hudson, " Capt. Thomas Howe 
acted a conspicuous part, he not only 
commanded the garrison and scouts 
through the town, but led the troops to 
every place of danger which presented it- 
self," he was buried at Marlboroifgh and 
the inscription upon his tombstone is still 
legible (m. 1st June 8, 1681 Sarah Hosmer, 
dau. of James and Sarah [White] Hosmer 
of Concord Mass., who d. Apr. 7, 1724, 
and he m. 2d Dec. 24, 1724 widow 
Mary Barron); son of John of Sudbury 
Mass. The Howes, who for nearly 160 
years kept the " Red Horse " or Howe 
Tavern in Sudbury, made famous in Long- 
fellow's poem, " The Wayside Inn," were 
descendants of John through his son Col. 
Samuel Howe. There used to hang there 
a painting representing the coat of arms, 
described in the poem. The arms were 
those of the family of Charles Howe, Earl 
of Lancaster. The original painting is now 
in the possession of George Hubbard 
Howe, a descendant of John, of Evans 
Colorado. A fac-simile of this coat of 
arms is printed as the frontispiece of 
Nason's Howe Family Gathering. The 
family tradition is that John was son of 
John Howe of Warwickshire; that the lat- 
ter was a son of John Howe of Hodinhull 
and related to the family of Charles, Earl 
of Lancaster. There are no records, how- 
ever, giving positive confirmation of this 
tradition. It is not known when John first 
came to America, nor where he first set- 
tled, but it is known that he was in Sud- 
bury Mass. as early as 1638 or 1639 and 
that he was one of the 47 who shared in 
the division of the Sudbury lands at that 
time. He was admitted freeman May 13, 
1640, and in 1642 was one of the selectmen 
there. He was the first white settler of 
Marlborough Mass., probably about 1657 
or 1658. He was one of the first of the 
selectmen there, and during his life there 
he bore a prominent part in all the civil 
and religious affairs of the town. John 
and his wife Mary both died in Marlbor- 



ough, but the accounts vary as to the 
dates of their deaths. As nearly as can 
now be ascertained John died May 28, 
1689, and his wife probably in 1698 or 1699

IDE FAMILY. Notes on the origin and 
early history of the Ide family in 
America by J. B. Nichols M. D. In this 
sketch are presented the results of an in- 
vestigation of the origin and early history 
of an Ide family in America. All the in- 
formation obtained concerning three 
generations (males), and all covering the 
seventeenth century, is given, together 
with some further data relative to the 
fourth generation. Attention will also be 
directed to sources of additional informa- 
tion, and a basis will, it is hoped, be af- 
forded for investigations into the genealogy 
of this family. The last old-country 
(doubtless English) ancestor of the Amer- 
ican Ide family under consideration was 

I 1. Nicholas Ide (or Hyde). He died 
early in the seventeenth century, leaving a 
son (II 1) Nicholas. His widow afterward 
married Thomas Bliss, of Belstone, near 
Okehampton, Devonshire, England. The 
latter belonged to a family of substantial 
farmers and landowners of Belstone, who 
by their adherence to Puritan views and 
their opposition to the court and clergy 
suffered persecution under the government 
of Charles I and were reluctantly impelled 
to emigrate to the new American colonies 
and exchange the comforts of their native 
land for the hardships of a new country. 
Thomas Bliss emigrated to America in 
1636, taking with him his stepson Nicholas 
Ide, his wife (formerly Mrs. Ide), and two 
or three children of their own. He joined 
an uncle at Braintree (then so called), near 
Boston, Massachusetts; he moved to Hart- 
ford, Connecticut, in a year or so, and 
back again to Weymouth, near. Braintree, 
about 1640. Religious dissensions arising 
in the Weymouth church, a section of the 
congregation, including Thomas Bliss and 
his family, left the place and settled Reho- 
both, Massachusetts, about 1643. Here 
Thomas Bliss, who is said to have been a 
blacksmith, lived until his death in June. 
1649. I n his will, besides two sons and

two daughters, he mentions Nicholas Ide 
as his son-in-law, probably meaning, as is 
thought by writers on the subject, his step- 
son rather than the husband of a daughter; 
Thomas Bliss's daughters were Nicholas 
Ide's half-sisters, whom oi course he could 
not marry. These details are mentioned 
to show the circumstances surrounding 
the early life of Nicholas Ide. 

II 1. Nicholas Ide, son of Nicholas, is 
believed to have been born in England 
early in the seventeenth century, to have 
come to America with his stepfather 
Thomas Bliss in 1636, to have lived with 
him as shown above, in Braintree to about 
1637, then in Hartford to about 1640, and 
in Weymouth about i640-'43, and to have 
gone with him about the autumn of 1643 
as an early settler of Rehoboth, where he 
lived the remainder of his life. His name 
first appears in the Rehoboth records as 
drawing for land April 9, 1645; he prob- 
ably attained his majority about this time, 
which would make the date of his birth 
perhaps about 1624. He also participated 
in subsequent divisions and transfers of 
land in Rehoboth and Attleboro (which 
lies immediately north of Rehoboth and 
was settled about 1668). He was admitted 
a freeman in 1648. In 1652 he was fined 
twenty-five pounds by the General Court 
of the colony of New Plymouth for selling 
a gun to an Indian; he pleaded inability to 
pay and the Court in 1657 ordered that on 
payment of " the sume of five pounds in 
good wampam " being provided for, the 
balance of the fine should be remitted. He 
was surveyor of the " highwaies " of Re- 
hoboth in 1662, 1669, and 1674. He is the 
only Ide that appears in lists of the free- 
men of New Plymouth colony in 1658 and 
1670. In the records the name is variously 
spelled Hyde or Hide (in the earlier 
years), lyde, Ide, Iyd, and Jyde; he ap- 
pears to have signed his name lyde. He 
had the following children, born at Reho- 
both: 
III 1. Nathaniel, born November 11, 

1647.

BURROWS FAMILY. Robert Bur- 
rows was the first of the name found 
in Connecticut. He went from Boston or 
that vicinity to settle in Wethersfield, in 
the colony of Connecticut, where he 
owned land in the year 1641. He with a 
few others made the first settlement at 
New London, Conn., after the final subju- 
gation of the Pequot Indians in the year 
1651. He was rated for his ministers' tax

at New London on 246 pounds sterling 
1652. He, in company with John Packer 
and Robert Park, settled in Groton near 
Mystic river. Burrows had a grant of " a 
parcel of land between the west side of the 
River and a high mountain of rocks " 
dated Apr. 3, 1651. Robert Burrows was 
by appointment the first ferryman on the 
Mystic River. There is the following 
record: " Goodman Burrose chosen ferry- 
man for Mistic river, to ferry a horse and 
a man for a groat." Robert Burrows mar- 
ried, in Wethersfield about 1645, Mary, 
relict of Samuel Ireland. She had two 
daughters by her first husband, Mary and 
Martha, whose portion of £30 each was 
delivered to their stepfather Burrows by 
John Latimer of Wethersfield Oct. 20, 
1651. For the faithful performance of his 
trust Burrows pledged his house, land and 
stock at Pequonuck. Mary, the wife of 
Robert Burrows, together with her first 
husband, Ireland, took the oath of allegi- 
ance to the Church of England at London

Of John Bush of Wells, Me., Dr. 
Stephen Bush, D. D., of Waterford. N. Y., 
says his grandfather Abijah Bush gave 
him the line back to Samuel, as it had 
come down by tradition, which makes 
Samuel Bush, the son of John Bush, and 
Grace his wife, living in Wells, Me., then 
Mass., in 1640. The records of the town 
were partially destroyed by some means, 
and there is no record of the children of 
John and Grace. They sold and moved away 
before 1650, and have not been able to trace 
them. While there is little doubt that he 
was the father of Samuel Bush, cannot 
verify it. His age would correspond, now 
supposing him to have been born about 
1650-2. His first son was born 1677. In 



the book of deeds of York Co., in which 
"Wells" lies, it says: " George Cleeve as 
agent for Rigly conveyed 400 acres of land 
to John Bush, 1650." Then in 1660 there 
is a deed in which John Bush and his wife 
Grace conveyed his one-third interest in 
land 4 miles square to Harlakenden Sy- 
monds. The land had been purchased by 
John Saunders, John Bush and Peter 
Turbutt of Sosowen, the Sagamore of the 
place. In the History of Wells, Me., by 
Edward E. Bourne, page 81, it says: " John 
Bush came from England May 1635, and 
to Wells, Me., about 1640-2. In 1647 he 
was appointed commissioner to try small 
causes, and again to the same office in 
1655." In Vol. xiv, N. E. Historical-Gen. 
Register, it says Jo (John) Bush with 
many others sailed from England May 2, 
1635, etc." There were other families of 
Bushs, John and Elizabeth of Cambridge 
about the same time beginning 1654, but 
none whose age would correspond with 
Samuel.

" Deserving of special notice was William 
C. Todd of Atkinson. He won the first 
victory in the constitutional convention, 
almost single handed, on the method of 
drawing seats and followed it by drawing 
the best seat in the house. This gave him 
a prestige which his ready wit and strong 
common sense tended to increase, and it 
was unusual for the convention to vote 
down anything which he supported in ear- 
nest. One of the amendments to be 
submitted was his, and like the seat draw- 
ing was carried almost without assistance," 
he established a free reading room in con- 
nection with the library at Newburyport

thousand dollars with the condition that it

a patent act by the attorney-general Sir 
John Holker. The evidence he gave in 
Parliament on the subject appeared in vari- 
ous publications and was made, states an 
eminent German attorney, " by our tech- 
nical societies the basis of discussions that 
led to the reform of the German patent 
system." In 1872 he received the degree 
of LL. D. from the Chicago University and

friends were the most eminent of English 
barristers." He conducted with success 
many patent cases before the law offices of 
the crown. In 1876 Dr. Haseltine retired 
from the London firm of which he was the 
head and returned to New York where he 
established a patent firm that acquired a 
foreign practice unequalled in America. He

of his life, representing that town in the 
general court in 1646 and for twelve con- 
secutive years thereafter, and serving in 
1643 as a member of a committee "to pro- 
vide plans and defence against the attacks 
of the Indians," and in 1645 of a committee 
"to propose laws to redress present abuses 
and to prevent future," and the following 
year on a committee, consisting of one 
for each township in the colony, appointed 
to devise means for defraying the expenses 
of the colony. A daughter, Sarah, born 
about 1622 in England, accompanied An- 
thony and Jane Anable in the ship "Ann."

HASELTnSTE, DR. GEORGE, son of 
Col. Richard and Rebecca [Gage] 
Haseltine, was b. Aug. 17, 1829 at Brad- 
ford Mass. His gr.-father, Amos Hasel- 
tine, was the son of Amos, son of Richard, 
son of Abraham, son of Robert, who was 
a son of Peter, a noted puritan of York- 
shire, Eng., and ancestor of Ann Hasel- 
tine Judson and the wife of Sir Anthony 
Trollops. The son, Robert, came to Row- 
ley Mass., where he was m. Oct. 23, 1639, 
and ten years later, with his brother John, 
became a first settler of Bradford. These 
brothers are ancestors of all Americans 
who have inherited the name of Haseltine. 
The mother of Dr. Haseltine, a gr.-dau. 
of an officer of the revolution, was a 
relative of the London banker, George 
Peabody, and Minots of Mass. Dr. Hasel- 
tine graduated at Dartmouth coll. in 
1854, with fifty-seven classmates by whom 
he was elected orator and first president, 
as stated in the class history, serving 
twenty-five years. He received the degree 
of LL.B. in 1856 from the univ. of Al- 
bany and commenced the practice of law 
in St. Louis. In 1857 he received the de- 
gree of M.A. from his college and visited 
Eng. to conduct a law suit, involving 
large interests, which was won two years 
later. He was engaged, 1860-62, as editor 
of the London American and his editorials 
which were extensively quoted by the 
British press, were pronounced by the 
American Minister, Hon. Chas. Francis 
Adams, unsurpassed by those of the London 
Times. In 1862 he commenced the practice 
of patent-law and in 1865 established a 
patent firm, that secured a patronage un- 
rivalled in Europe and gained a world-wide 
reputation. He was summoned in 1870 by 
the " parliamentary select committee " 
to give evidence on patent laws that ap- 
peared in various publications, and " was 
made," says an eminent German attorney, 
" the basis of discussions by our technical 
societies that led to the reform of the Ger- 
man patent system." In 1872 he was elec- 
ted a member of the British Society of 
Arts and received the degree of LL.D from 
the Chicago univ. He was a promoter 



and active member of the Vienna patent 
congress. Gen'l John Eaton, a classmate, 
who visited London in 1873, states that 
" Dr. Haseltine had won the position of 
leader in the patent reform movement, and 
among his friends were the most eminent 
of English Barristers." The reforms he 
favored were embodied in a patent bill 
that was introduced in the house of com- 
mons by Attorney-General Sir John Hol- 
ker. He conducted with unusual success, 
as shown by the reports, many patent cases 
before the law officers of the crown. Dr. 
Haseltine retired from the London firm, of 
which he was the head, in 1876 and came to 
New York where he established a firm that 
acquired a foreign patent practice un- 
equalled in America. He is a member of 
Psi Upsilon Club, and a life member of 
the New England Society.
