' Those who do not look upon lliemselvcs as a link conneclinfi; the past with the futun 
perform their duty to the world."— D-\niel W'ELsruu. 





THERE has, for some years, been a growing interest in genealogical research, 
and the literature on the subject is already very extensive, although it 
is, for tlie most part, sliut up in the archives of historical libraries, and the 
public are ignorant of its existence. 

The perusal of elaborate and intricate tracings of genealogical branches is 
not a jjopular study, for it is impossible to create a very widespread interest in 
names the record and recollection of which have passed away in the current of 
time ; but it is not so with the direct pedigrees of those whose living personality 
is part of our social or national life. 

"Who is he ? " is almost the first question put regarding an individual who 
happens to come into prominence or notoriety, and the absence of trustworthy 
information on the subject of ancestry often gives rise to very serious misappre- 
hension. However indifferent some may affect to be regarding this question of 
ancestry, universal experience of human nature serves to prove that those who 
really have a pedigree will usually boast of it, whilst only those who lack one, 
and cannot perhaps even trace to their grandfather, will condemn such as friv- 
olous and foolish. Some of America's greatest citizens have not hesitated to 
declare their pride of birth and pedigree. President Garfield delighted to 
dwell on the traits of his ancestors and was justly proud of his long lineage ; 
Samuel J. Tilden found leisure amidst the strife of politics to devote to such 
investigations; and Daniel Webster often declared that the study of ancestry 
was an incumbent duty, and that we should look upon the present generation 
as connecting links between the eventful past and the unknown future. The 
preservation of pedigrees is therefore not the mere pastime of the idle or curious. 
It is the honorable employment of the student and of the historian. // has 
always formed the basis of all true history. 

In the ancient records of Assyria, Egypt, and Arabia, the pixligree of an 
individual was usually the thread upon which was strung the stirring events of 


centuries, and so important ;i place did the preservation of a lineage occupy 
amongst the Jewish people that it was established as a positive obligation upon 
every Levite of the temple. 

Nor was this genealogical form of history ])ecidiar to Semetic races. The 
earliest Greek records were also those of jjcdigrees. 'i'he histories of Acusilaus 
of .Argos, and of Hecata;us of Miletus were entitled ysviaXoyiai (genealogies), 
and, the fragmentary histories of Xanthus, Charon of I.amijsacus, and llellanicus 
are strongly marked with the genealogical element, a form of history which is 
clearly sustained in the Greek Testament by the writers of the gospel narrative, 
who base tlie wliole structure of Christianity upon the established pedigree of 
its founder. 

Josephus regarded genealogical study as of the utmost importance, and in 
giving an account of his personal history, boasts " I have traced my pedigree as 
I have found it recorded in the public tablets." And it is in harmony with such 
feelings tliat tlie present work on A.mkkic.\n Ances'iry has been undertaken. 

The names of only those who can trace their lineage to an ancestor who 
was settled in America previous to the DhXl.-A RATION OF AMERICAN 
INDEPKNDICNCE are admitted, and when it is remembered that there was 
only a population of less than two millions and a cpiarter in the whole of the 
Ifnited States in the year 1776 (exclusixe of sla\'es and Indians), it will be seen 
that but a small proportion of the jjresent population can claim the honor of 
being descended from the original American stock ; and consequently in ages 
to come, the arrival of the Virginian colonists, the emigration of the Puritan and 
Dutch settlers, as well as the settlement of the Quaker and Huguenot refugees 
will form as memorable epochs in the history of the Grkat Republic as the 
Saxon and Norman com[uests of GRiiAT liRiTAiN now do in the history of that 
country. A few centuries hence Americans will exjierience as much jjleasure 
in tracing back their ancestry to those jieriods as the English now do to the 
days of \V'illiamthe Conqueror. 

These volumes of American Ancesirv will supply a most convenient 
method of preserving such ])edigrees. And although its jiages will contain, 
for the most part, but simple records of uneventful generations, they will pre- 
serve facts which would otherwise be lost in the history of the people. 

The number of lineages in the present volume, embracing .^Vi.i:anv City, is 
comparatively small. Hut a very large majority of the residents (jf Albany, who 
have every reason to believe that they are descended from an old American 
stock, cannot trace as far back as 1776, whilst not a few of those who bear the 


well-known names of earl)- Dutch and English settlers haxx an awkward and 
inconvenient hiatus in their pedigrees, to which history cannot supply the 
necessary link. 

In a few instances the lineages of jirominent Albanians have been with- 
drawn, because the design of our work precludes the publication of atito-hlo- 
giapltical ikc-ti/ics (not always of the most modest and unassuming character) 
of living persons. As our work is e.\c hisively one on Ancestry, we have found 
it wiser and safer to omit all references to the living beyond the names and 

Each lineage is intended to an impartial record, and we have been care- 
ful to expunge all such adjectives as "great," "prominent" and " pious " from 
the pedigrees. The historic record of iniblic offices lield, works written, and 
other remarks pretty clearly define the jiosition of each line of ancestry with- 
out any laudatory statements. 

We have been an.xious to olitain all the information ])ossible regarding the 
history of a family prior to emigration, and when a distinct pedigree is given to 
a noble or distinguished ancestry, we lia\e been careful to insert it, but in those 
cases where the line is at present only probal'Ie wc have given a qualified state- 
ment to that effect, for as the i/tsissimd tit/hi of the manuscript sent to the edi- 
tor have in no case been inserted, he prai tically makes himself responsible for 
the lineages. 

Undoubtedly some of the very best blood of the old world flowed in the 
veins of the early American colonists, and the more carefully their genealogy 
is investigated, the more deeply interesting will be the facts elucidated, and we 
cannot but hope that the publication of successive volumes of American 
Ancestry will both stimulate incjuiry as to the early history of American fami- 
lies and also revive that most ancient method of forming history — the careful 
and painstaking study of genealogy and pedigree.

then came lo Long Island, and settled at 
Flushing; his brother John being one of 
llie original settlers of that place, to whom 
die patent was granted by Gov. Kieft, in 
1645. On account of political and relig- 
ions dilTiculties with the Dutch governor, 
Peter Sluyvesant, the Townsend brothers 
removed to Warwick, Rhode Island, where 
lliey were all three members of the provin- 
cial assembly, and lield, besides, munici- 
pal offices. In 1656 they once more at- 
tempted to settle in Long Island, and in 
that year obtained, with others, the patent 
of Riislihrp (now Jamaica). In 1657 Henry 
Townsend was arrested, imprisoned and 
fined "one hundred pounds Flanders "for 
harboring Quakers in his house. In the

brothers to Oyster Bay, which was out of 
the jurisdiction of the Dutcli hierarchy at 
New Amsterdam, where he spent the re- 
mainder of his life, and died at Oyster Bay,

fessedly the foremost journal of purely literary criticism in the United Slates. 
Other journals make a si)eciality of literary criticism, and there are one or 
two "literary monthlies," so called ; but as a fonni-litly or^'au of current

The Critic, estalilisheil in January, 1881, is universally admitted to be 
"the fiirst literary journal in America." It aims to keep its reailer.s tlior- 
oughly informed on literary matters in America and Enoland. Its plan 
embraces a leadinij^ essay or editorial, u.sually on .some literary topic of 
timely interest ; indeiiendent and impartial reviews of all important books 
liublished in America ; occasional comment on matters relatini^ to tlic fine 
arts, music and the drama ; literary news and notes ; original jioetry ; 
communication; a jrossiping de])arttneiit called (■'The Lounger;") a 
column of notes and queries (" 'I'lie Free Parliament "), 0])cn to any siib- 
Rcrilier who wishes to ask or answer a ])ertinent literarj' question ; and 
carefully selected articles from the English literary journals and reviews. 
At present a very interesting series of )iersonal sketches is appearing inider 
the title i.f " Authors at Home." 


( Exlrw I I'nim a primle leUcr jvinted hy ixnniiiRiort.') 
T am glad of this opportunity to express to you my keen sense of indebt- 
edness for TIk'. C'ritir. I never read it — and, no matter liow much driven, I 
never allow it to go unread — without a fresh conviction of its rare worth. 
It is so thorongidy Juf<t, so discriminating, so full of the atmosphere of a 
courageous, candid and open-minded criticism, that one cannot but lie proud 
and glad that so good and helpful a journal is winning its way to the wider 
recognition and esteem which it so al)undanlly desei'ves.

Look to your Linens and buy a Pure Article with Trade Mark on Every Box. 

Probably not one in ten of the consumers understand iriie ingredients 

tvhich compose the numberless varieties of Soap noxu offered for sale. Did 
they do so, asiuell as the injurious nature of many of the adulterations, 
they would be more cautions in purchasimj. We subjoin a list of articles 
used to cheapen Soaps by many manifacturers : French clay, plaster of 
pariSy talc, silex, quartz and ground glass formed into a liquid, with a 
7iu7nber of other articles, to lighten the color and add to the weight. Good 
Soap, like good luine is improved by age. A bo.e of soaj) in a family is 
better than money at interest as when from three to six inonfJts old, one 
pound luill go further than three pounds of new soap. ' . .
