HE author of this Family History (Homer Elhanan Ayls- 
WORTH, M. D., of Roseville, 111.) devoted several years of his 
life to its preparation. He traveled through the various States 
of the Union and the Dominion of Canada in search of material, and 
wrote several thousands of letters, involving a large expenditure of 
money, which he cheerfully paid from his own resources, and although 
his family is so much poorer by this expenditure, yet they are abund- 
antly richer in the knowledge of the successful result of that labor, and 
the glorious intellectual monument he has erected to his memory. It 
was, indeed, unfortunate that the worthy Doctor could not have lived 
to have realized the full fruition of his hopes, but Providence ordered 
different. 

After the author's death the members of the family residing in Rhode 
Island approached the editor in regard to the publication of the work. 
So strong was their entreaty that he wrote to the author's excellent wife 
to ascertain how near completed the work had been left. He was in- 
formed that all the material gathered by the Doctor in his travels and 
all correspondence received had been incorporated in the work, and, so 
far as known, it was now as complete as genealogies generally are. 
Armed with this information he agreed to undertake the publication 
which has been very materially aided through the liberal contributions 
of Judge Eli Aylsworth, (page 247), his son Hiram B. Aylsworth, (page 
392). both of Providence, R. I., and Hon. Allen B. Aylsworth (page 
420), of Toronto, Canada. The author's widow, notwithstanding the 
already large expenditure of money in the preparation of the work, 



placed another liberal allowance to the publication fund. With these 
means, aided by the single subscriptions to the book, its publication has 
been effected. 

The editor believed that if the work was published after being so 
nearly completed by its original author, that it should reflect his like- 
ness from every page, and another had no right to rob the worthy com- 
poser of his justly earned fame, lie believed the members of the fam- 
ily residing in the States and Canada would feel that this was no more 
than his just due. Therefore, he has adhered (and some might say too 
strictly) to the original plan. Be that as it may, he has changed noth- 
ing but what was imperatively needed, and what has been added from 
more recent corres^jondence has been prepared on the author's plan. 
In short this work is substantially as Dr. Aylsvvorth left it. 

The editor has caused to be inserted, as a fitting frontispiece to the 
work, a portrait of its author. lie has also placed a fine steel engrav- 
ing of Judge Aylsworth, facing his biographical sketch. He flatters 
himself it will aflbrd great i)h asure to the readers of this book to view 
such a tine illustration of one of the oldest living members of the family. 

A great difticulty met the author and editor, and that was to decide on 
the spelling of the name. It will be seen by reference to these pages 
that the compiler has taken up this question and discussed it in a very 
able manner, and came to the conclusion that the standard spelling was 
Aylsavorth, and so adopted it in this work. With this explanation it 
will be seen why so many families who spell it Ellsworth and in various 
other ways should find it here spelled Aylsworth. 

To show the great diversity in the spelling of the name, a special index 
has been prepared and inserted at the end of the general one, to illus- 
trate this feature. 

With all the cai'e that has been bestowed in the preparation of this 
work, errors in spelling of names of persons and places may have oc- 
curred, typographical errors, if not misplacements and omissions. 
Many of these, no doubt, would have been rectified had its author lived. 
Many of these errors were bcjond the power of the editor to correct, 
yet so far as he has been able to do so he has spaired no pains in order to 
accomplish it. He has labored earnestly to have the work correct in 
every particular, and to retain that confidence the family so generously 
placed in his keejiing. IIow well he has done his work is not for him 
but the memliers of the family to determine. 



The work has been printed by Herbert Whipple Greene, Esq., (page 
392) whose wife and children claim descent from Arthm' of Quidnesset. 

The work has been set up entirely by one compositor, Mr. Frank Kay, 
which is by the way a rare thing in printing offices for so large a work. 
To his experienced hand and thoughtful attention and the interest he 
has taken in the work its typographical appearance is indebted. 

Mr. Robert F. Belcher, the foreman of the office, has rendered the 
editor many favors. 

In the name of the family the editor thanks all of the above gentle- 
men for their many courtesies. 

To facilitate easy reference to the name of every person mentioned in 
these pages an elaborate index has been prepared, to which the editor 
desires to call the attention of the reader. He would have the reader 
when using this index to note this particular feature — that a certain 
name is given but once, although it may belong to several persons ; for 
instance : There may be several John Aylsworths, James Aylsworths, 
or William Aylsworths, given in the work, vet they will all be found 
under the head of John, James, and William, respectively. If the 
name carries more with it, like John C, Arthur A., etc., each will be 
found in its appropriate i:)lace. The editor has found by experience to 
produce each John by itself does not help the reader in the least, as he 
is obliged to look at each reference page to obtain the information 
sought for, and that this method brings the reference pages nearer to- 
gether and tnereby assists materially. 

The following index contains over nine thousand names, including 
about eighteen hundred bearing the name of Aylsworth, nearly fifteen 
hundred distinct surnames, about five thousand families, and nineteen 
thousand references. 

The editor congratulates the family upon the successful publication of 
their history, at the same time thanking them for the many courtesies 
extended to him during its publication, and he trusts that they will in 
future enjoy many hours of pleasure as well as profit in the searching 
of its pages.

Beloved Friends— Out of respect to the family name; to the mem- 
ory of the departed ; for the information of the living, and those yet un- 
born, it is, that I have collected together the information contained in 
this brief Record, in order that the same may be preserved and handed 
down to the latest posterity. In passing a glance of the eye over these 
pages, may each one of you be reminded of the rapid flight of time, and 
involuntarily exclaim : Where are now our forefathers ! Where our 
cotemporaries!! Gone! gone!! never more to return!!! and after a few 
more fleeting days, where will each of you be? The Book of God 
answers, in Happiness or in Woe and Despair. Salvation is by Jesus 
Christ. O then repent of sin, embrace the Saviour, live in obedience to 
God's commands and be forever happy. 

AS"ectionately Yours, 

S. Aylsworth.

Introduction, 




' N the year 1840 Sylvester Aylsworth, of Utica, issued a twelve- 
pnged pamphlet of genealogical information, and, notwith- 
bUindlng the repetition which it necessitates, the subject mat- 
tei- is rejiroduced in this place complete, with the exception of the 
family records of William and Catharine (Havens) Aylsworth and of 
their male descendants, which appear in the body of this work with 
additions. 

This presentation is made in order to credit the Register as a whole, 
the labors of whose author in the then uncultivated field of printed 
American genealogies were most praiseworthy.

APPENDIX. 



After examining all the collections obtained on the subject of ances- 
try, I come to the following conclusions :* 

In 1660 Charles II. was restored to the throne of Great Britain. 
Four years after, A. D. 1664, the Episcopalians having obtained the 
ascendancy of power in Church and State, commenced a severe and 
cruel persecution upon those dissenters who refused compliance to the 
•' Conformity Act," (or their particular forms of worship,) imposing 
fines, imprisonment, proscription, banishment, and death. (See NeaVs 
History of the Puritans, Lojidon edition, 1733, Vol. 4 ) 

At this time, A. D. 1664:, one of three brothers, (I conclude the eld- 
est,) fled to Holland. He there became incorporated with tbe Dutch, 
and spelt his name after the Dutch pronunciation ELS WORT. After a 
few years residence there, he with his family emigrated to America, 
and settled in the city of New York, where many of the descendants 
still remain. His name is believed to be THEOPHILUS.f 

He and his descendants prolessed their attachment to the Dutch 
Reformed Church. They spell their name ELS WORTH. 

Six years after, A. D. 1670, the persecution was again renewed 
with increased severity by the same power; 1 believe the second brother 
fled at this time. He emigrated to America, and settled in Connecticut. 
From him descended the family of that State who spell their names 
ELLSWORTH. To this family belonged Chief Justice Oliver Ells- 
worth, who was born at Windsor, Ct., April 29, 1745, and died 1807, 
aged 62 years, and William W. Ellsworth, present Governor of that 
State, t 

The third brother who remained in Wales was my ancestor. I con- 
clude he was several years younger than the other two, and at the time 
of persecution was too young to excite suspicion. From calculation I 
make his birth A. D. 1656, his emigration to America A. D. 1681, his 
death 1725, his age 69 years. He settled in North Kingston,tt R. I., 
where many of his posterity still remain. From him descended a num- 



orous posterity, who have scattered over several States. The name was 
originally spt^lt AYLSWORTH. It was so spelt by him and is still so 
spelt by his descendants. § His christian name was Arthur. 

The descendants of these three brothers resemble each other in 
their general appearance and natural turn; having sandy hair, light 
skin, dark blue eyes, and often red whiskers. 

These three brothers were Welchmen. 

• The Register might with propriety have stated the grounds upon which these 
conclusions were based. If the conclusions to the author's mind apparently Justined 
a prevalent traditional accaunt ef the exodus of Arthur and other members of his 
father's family from England, a statement to that effect would have been preferable. 
The account here given of the three brothers appears untenable, even though the 
unity of the three genealogies originating in Christopher, Josia, and Arthur, should 
prevail when carried further back. 

For Theophllus the name of Christopher should be substituted, and the date, 1664, 
at which time he Is supposed to have fled from England to Holland, must be aban- 
doned, as well as the date 1670, at which Josla, the ancestor of the Windsor families 
la supposed to hare left England. The latter was born in 1629, and the former about 
the same period. The consequent disparity in the ages of the three persons said to 
have been brothers is remarkable to say the least.

§ The Register doubtless makes this statement with reference to an old contro- 
versy In the family as between Ellsworth and Aylsworth. The immigrant's name 
was Aylworth. 

The following notice of the Register Is found In Whltemore's American Genealo- 
gist, Albany, ls75 : 

I derive my knowledge of this book from a review In the New York Genealogical 
and Blograpolcal Record, Vol. 1. It Is stated that the Register contains " one line of 
the family without dates for four generations, except in the family of William Ayls- 
worth of the fourth generation, whose descendants seem to be fully named." • « • 
The author, on Insufficient grounds, tries to connect the Ellsworths with this family.

The Rhode Island Town Records. 




HE southern part of the State of Rhode Island was settled by 
Englishmen in the vicinity of the present site of Wickford in 
1639, the section being known as the Narraganset country, 
from the name of the tribe of Indians inhabiting it. It was named 
King's Province March 20, 1654:, and the boundary established Maj 21, 
1669, about the time that the town of Westerly Avas incorporated. 
King's Towne, though settled first, was not incorpoarted until 1674. Its 
name was changed to Rochester June 23, 1686, but the former name 
was restored in 1689. It was divided into North and South Kingstown 
Feb. 26, 1722-3, and June 16, 1729, the three towns, Westerly, North 
Kingstown, and South Kingstown, were incorporated as King's County, 
having the same territory as the present County of Washington, to 
which its name was changed Oct. 29, 1781. Charlestown was taken 
from Westerly Aug. 22, 1738 ; Exeter was taken from North Kingstown 
March 8, 1742 ; Hopkinton was taken from Westerly March 19, 1757 ; 
Richmond was taken from Charlestown Aug. 18, 1747. 

The County of Kent, taken from the County of Providence June 15, 
1750, consisted originally of two towns. East Greenwich, incorporated 
Oct. 31, 1677, and Warwick, and included the present territory of that 
county. West Greenwich was taken from East Greenwich April 6, 
1741, and Coventry was taken from Warwick, Aug. 21, 1741. 

Scituate was taken from the town of Providence Feb. 20, 1730, and 
Foster was taken from Scituate Aug. 24, 1781. 

A Rhode Island town council, together with its other functions, is a 
court of probate. The town council records, real estate records, and 
the records of births, marriages, and deaths, are kept by a town clerk. 
The voluntary recording of births, marriages, and deaths was quite 
generally resorted to in early times as of possible future importance in 
the settlement of estates or otherwise. One of the early acts of the 
King's Towne Council was a resolution that the inhabitants of the town

present such facts for record, that eaoh one might clrim his inheritance. 
Owing to what seems to many a parsimonious policy on the part of the 
town councils, whose powers are ample and whose duties are plain, 
these town records which have been accumulating for two hundred 
years, have not, in some instances, been propei'ly cared for. Some of 
the towns, however, have recently provided fire-proof safes or vaults 
for their records, and indexed many of the older volumes. 

The records of most importance to this genealogy are those of North 
Kingstown, Exeter, East Greenwich, West Greenwich, Coventry, Scit- 
iiate, and Foster. The North Kingstown records are of great import- 
ance, as containing neai'ly all the recorded evidence relating to the 
immigrant's family. These records were so badly injured by fire in 
December, 1871, as to render an examination of them very laborious. 
Many records were either destroyed or so injured as to be of but little 
value. 

In getting from the Rhode Island town records the dates and locali- 
ties will be given as in the records, hence the i-eader must have due 
regard both to old style dates and to the division of the towns already 
noticed. 

Quidnesset, or Quidnesset Neck, is a tract of land in the form of an 
irregular quadrilateral lying in the town of North Kingstown, R. I., 
between East Greenwich and Wickford, containing perhaps 5,000 acres, 
and bounded on the north by Hunt's River and Potowomut Neck, on 
the east by Narragansett Bay, on the south by Wickford Bay, and on 
the west by a line running about due south from Hunt's Bridge and 
nearly coinciding with the old Pequot path, an Indian trail which after- 
wards became the Queen's highway, and which is at present known as 
the Post road, which path and ancient thoroughfare skirted the bay far 
enough from the shore to avoid the inlets. By the side of this road and 
about midway in the wt stern boundary of Quidnesset is the rock known 
as " Devil's Foot," which appears to have been an early land mark in 
that vicinity. The northeast point of Quidnesset is called Pojack, and 
the southeast Quanset. Between these two points theie is on the north 
a small inlet called Tibbets' Creek, and on the south one called Hall s 
Creek, while about midway is situated an inlet of larger dimensions 
known as Allen's Harbor. The surface is undulating, the highest point 
being about a mile northwest of this harbor, where some rugged clifis 
are found facing the southeast, and from which may be obtained a pic- 
turesque view of the adjacent country and bay. 

A plat of Quidnesset dated Feb. 8, 1717-8, evidently not completed, 
indicates upwards of thiity lots on the tract, averaging about 150 acres 
each, though eight lots, mostly in the northwest corner, range from 
thirty- five acres to sixty acres each. The names of the owners of 
twenty-three lots are noted. One of the f(mr lots having no other iden- 



14 

tity on the plat thati their outlines claims our attention. This is a peix^ 
tagonal tract lying between Allen's Harbor and the northwest corner of 
Quidnesset, containing about 400 acres, which tract, or the greater part 
of which tract, belonged to Arthur Aylworth, as he and his family are 
known to have owned upwards of 300 acres of it. Between the high- 
way on the southeast side of this tract and a pine grove, which has 
grown upon land once cleared off, is a lot which has been known for 
many years as the old orchard. In this lot and near the grove is a plat 
of ground cleai-ed partially of the drift boulders, so common in the 
vicinity, in which lies partly imbedded in the ground a lai*ge stone 
mantel, which, no doubt, formed part of the immigrant's fire-place. 
Here apple trees were standing within the recollection of persons still 
living, and here the plow has revealed other evidences, such as heaps 
of clam shells, etc., of its having been the site of a permanent house 
long ago. The ancient dwelling place in the old orchard is within a 
mile of the salt water, and situated in a westerly direction from it is a 
family cemetery, in which there are upwards of thirty distinct graves, 
but the greater number of them have no inscriptions.

The Family Surname, 




'his collection is properly n:imecl the Ayl worth Genealogy. 
The name of the immigrant ancestor was Arthur Aylworth. 
His signatm'e to deeds, will and codicil is recorded as auto- 
gi-aphic and uniformly written Arthur Aylworth. This form of the 
name prevailed among his descendants very generally for many years, 
and has been brought down to the present day by some. 

Hence we would emphasize this fundamental fact, the original family 
surname. The results of a varying American ortliography cannot set 
it aside. Traditional accounts, respecting the spelling of the name, 
must also yield to the superior force of unequivocal records. 

The first variation in the spelling seems to have been the introduction 
of an s — Aylsworth — traces of which are found at an early date. The 
name has this form once only in the record of the immigrant's will, 
made between 1712 and 1720. 

A record of the autographic signature of the immigrant's eldest son- 
Robert, is not found. In the body of instruments executed by him the 
name is clerically spelled Aylsworth. At the time his estate was set- 
tled, 1760, the records show much confusion in the spelling of his name, 
but the original form prevailed in his widow's will, and his son Eph- 
raim's signature is recorded as autographic and spelled Aylworth in 
1761, and AylsAVorth in 1762. 

The will of the son Arthur, of West Greenwich, was made in 1761. 
His signature was recorded as autographic in this and other instruments 
executed by him, and was Avritten Aylworth. 
his 

John X Aulsworth is the recorded signature to the will of the son 
mark 

John, made in 1771, but in the body of the will the name is uniformly 

spelled Aylsworth. In 1776 his son Arthur signed his name "Aley, 

worth " in conveying land by deed. 

It is probable that the son Philip made a will but no trace of it has 

yet been found. The clerical spelling of his name in 1736 was both 

Alworth and Aleworth, but the s became so thoroughly established in 



16 

the name with this branch of the family that Sylvester Aylsworth, his 
great grandson, concluded, erroneously, that the immigrant's name was 
Aylsworth. 

The son Chad signed his name without the 5 certainly until quite late 
in life, but "being very sick and weak in body" when his will was 

Ills 
made in 1756, he signed the same by mark thus, Chaad : C : Aylesworth. 

mark 

The clerical spelling of the name as found in the old town records, 
deeds, wills, etc , is not to be appealed to with confidence in justifica- 
tion of any particular orthography In some cases the name is found 
spelled variously by the same hand in the same article or instrument. 
This inexcusable liberty was not uncommon. That confusion should 
appear in the spelling of a name so unusual and peculiar is not surpris- 
ing, especially in a community removed from educational advantages. 
The immigrant's unvarying signature should settle conclusively the 
question of the proper orthography of the family surname 

The following list of unusual spellings, if of no importance otherwise, 
possesses a charm of variety, and is made from actual spellings of the 
name as found in variotis records and writings : 

Alsworth, Aysworth, Ayloworth, 

Alesworth, Alytsworth, Aleyworth, 

Ailsworth, Aylysworth, Aillsworth, 

Alworth, Alysworth, Ealsworth, 

Aly worth, Ayelsworth. 

We observe, so far, but two important features — the essential char- 
acteristics of the immigr.mt's name — Aylworth, and the introduction 
of s (or es) Aylsworth, reflecting a changed pronunciation of the name. 

But another element of confusion appeared about the time of the 
Revolution in the substitution of E for the initial A The First Baptist 
Church of Newport records the marriage of Anthony Elsworth and 
Elizabeth Keiland, July 31, 1774. The Newport Mercury publishes the 
same marriage, but gives his name Anthony Aylsworth, and hers Bet- 
sey Keeling. The descendants of many families who emigrated from 
Rhode Island for one reason or another, or with no reason, have allowed 
the fjimily surname to be spelled Elsworth or Ellsworth. 

Arthur (2) Aylworth, of West Greenwich, was an inn keeper, and 
drovers from Saybrook, Conn., by the name of Elsworth, or Ellsworth, 
in passing to and from Newport were accustomed to stop at his inn. 
Abel Aylesworth often heard them talk over their i-elationshijD, and 
that they were all of the same family. Tl)e reader is referred to his 
statement elsewhere. Controversies arose as to the spelling of the name 
as between Ayl and Ell. The erroneous conclusion was entertained by 
Bome that Aylsworth was the Welsh form and Ellsworth the English 
form of the same name. 



17 

This surname was familiar in England at the time Arthur Aylworth 
came to America. An examination of old English works for variations 
the name has acquired in America has not yet been rewarded with any 
result sanctioning their use on such authority. The early variations 
that prevailed in England were slight in comparison with those that 
have prevailed in this country. A quite common variation placed an e 
after the I — Ayleworth. In such cases the y was sometimes omitted — 
Aleworth. The s so common in the American name, is extremely rare 
in the English, and its even rare occurrence may have resulted from 
the confounding of this surname with a very similar one in pronuncia- 
tion — Aldesworth, known in the same locjility. In a single instance 
only the initial letter A was found changed to E, the name then fully 
written being Elworth. 

The following extracts, i*eferring to graduates from the Oxford Col- 
leges, in England, are both interesting and significant, as we can appeal 
to no higher authority for a proper and standard orthography of the 
surname at the dates given : 

Anthony Aylworth, Doctor of Physic of New Coll , the King's profes- 
sor of physic, and physician to Queen Elizabeth (graduated) July 5, 
1582. He died April 18, 1619, and was buried in New Coll. Chappel. 
[Fasti 0x(:ni«iuses, i. 222.] 

Martin Aylworth, Doctor of Law of All-Souls Coll. (graduated) Nov. 
27, 1621. [Fasti Oxonienses, i. 308.] 

Henry Aylworth, Chancellor of the Diocese of Oxford, New Coll., D. 
C. L., March 9, 1660, [Oxford Catalogue.] 

John Aylworth, Magd., B. A. Jan. 20, 1672,— M. A. Oct. 20, 1675. 
[Oxford Catalogue.] 

" Surnames were introduced into England by the Normans and were 
adopted by the nobility about 1100 " [Hayden ] " Even after the eon- 
quest the practice was not introduced among the Saxon pojiulation, so 
far as reliable records testify, for one or two hundred years." [Nicho- 
las, Pedigree of the English People.] " The assumption of surnames 
by the common people is every where of much later date than their use 
by noble (gentle) families. As yet they can hardly be said to be adopted 
by the people of the wilder districts of Wales." [Chamber's Encyc] 

Surnames often originated in local names, which seems to have been 
the case with the name of Aylworth. An English Gazetteer, printed in 
London, Eug., in 1775, cites two localities of this name in England, 
viz. : 

Aylworth, Gloc , near Wytbington. 
Aylworth, Sussex, north of Eastbourne. 

The following extracts from a description of the parish of Naunton 
is taken from Atkyn's History of Glocestershire : 

This parish lies in the hundred of Slaughter, four miles distant south- 
3 



18 

west of Stow, four miles southeast from Winchcomb, and fourteen miles 
northeast from Glocester. * * * The church is in the deanery of 
Stow; it is worth 120s. yearly. The Bishop of Worcester is patron. 
* * * The church is handsome with a beautiful tower adorned with 
battlements and pinnacles, and hath an aile on the north side belonging 
to the family of the Aleworths;* it is dedicated to St. Andrew. 

The images of the apostles have been painted in full length in the 
church windows, and some do yet remain entire. In the north windows 
are the images of St. Stephen and St. Catharine; and in one window is 
the image of John Bayle in a posture of prayer; and in several places 
is painted, to pray for the soul of Aleworth and the soul of John Bayle. 
The parish is eight miles in compass ; it consists mostly of arable land. 
A brook, which breeds very large trouts, runs through this parish into 
Windrush River. 

There are several hamlets, or smaller divisions in this parish : 

1. Ayleworth, a mile from the church, where is the seat of the 
family of that name, who have a good estate in the place, and are of a 
very ancient descent ; they have continued here ever since the Norman 
Conquest (A. D. 1066.) 

" Alwin held Ailewurde in the reign of King Edward the Confessor 
" (1042-1066); William Gozenboded held it in the reign of King Wil- 
"liam the Conquerer (1066 — 1085. It was taxed at one hide; there 
" was one plow's-tillage in demean. It formerly paid a yearly i-ent of 
"6s.; it paid 3s. yearly in King William's reign." Domesday Book.f 

Petronella de la Mere died seised of Elvvorth 47 Hen. III. (1263.) 
Gelbert de Clare, Earl of Glocester and Hartford, was seised of this 
manor and Hartford in this parish, in the reign of King Edward the 
First (1272 — 1307) ; and his claim to a court leet, and other privileges 
was allowed in a Quo Warranto brought against him 15 Ed I. (1287.) 

This manor at the dissolution of religious foundations, did belong to 
the priory of St. Oswald's in Glocester, and was granted to Richard 
Andrews and Nicholas Temple, in trust. 35 Hen. VIII. (1544.) A farm 
in Ayleworth did belong to the priory of Lautliony. and was granted to 
Vincent Calmudee and Richard Calmudee 6 Eliz (1564 ) 

Richard Alyeworth had livery of the manor and capital messuage of 
Ayleworth, with the lands lately belonging to the priory of St. Oswald's 
and also a farm called de Lantone, 9 Eliz (1567). Other lands in Ayle- 
worth, and a grove, did belong to the chantry of St. Mai'y in Westbury, 
and was granted to Anthony Cope, 10 Jac. (1613 ) John Ayleworth 
was seised of lands in Naunton, Calcut, and Ayleworth, 16 Ed. IV. 
(1477.) 

• In all historical extracts the orthography of this surname will be strictly copied. 

t Domesday Book Is one of the oldest and most valuable records In England, being 
a statistical survey of the country by William the Conquerer, and completed in 1086.

2. Bail Farm, another hamlet which did belong to a family of the 
same name, as appears by the glass windows in the church. 

3. Uppt-r Harford. William de Clinton, earl of Huntington, was 
seised of the manor of Hartford 28 Ed. III. (1355 ) Richard son of 
John Browning, was seised thereof 2 Hen. IV. (1401.) The priory of 
Lanthony was seised of lands in Harford and Aylesworth* 13 Hen. IV. 
(1412) 

There are thirty-four houses in this parish, and about one hundred 
and forty inhabitants, whereof sixteen are freeholders : yearly births 5, 
deaths 4. Payments, to the royal aid 1692, 079£— lis— 04d; 1684 to 
the land tax 063£— 19s-00d; 1694 to the poll tax 022£— 13s— OOd. 

Rudge's History of Gloucester, gives a briefer description of the par- 
ish of Naunton, and of Ayleworth, says it gave name to a family who 
were ancient possessors of it, — that lands in Naunton had belonged to 
the family of Ayleworth so early as 1477 — has no variations in the 
spelling of the name, and to what is said by Atkyns concerning Richard 
Ayleworth, adds that " Joshua the last of this family died in 1718 when 

the manor, with the estates passed by purchase to Herring, 

Esq." 

The reader will not fail to notice the variations in the spelling of the 
name in Atkyns' history, which are accounted for by supposing that 
the historian followed his authorities, giving the spellings as he found 
them ; or as Lambarde remarks in his history of Kent, concerning a 
similar case, "by depravation of the writers out of the sundry copies as 
I susi^ect." 

Domesday has, beside the reference to Ailewrde given above, also a 
reference to Aldeswrde in Gloucestershii'e, and Strypes Memoir of the 
Ref. II P ii. page 6, referring to the year 1552, contains this clause: 
" And the tenths in Aldesworth, Linton and Skipton solas, in the county 
of Gloucester, etc." 

The introduction to Vol. IV. of Domesday, in speaking of the names 
of both places and persons says, "The caprice however with which 
they have been wi'itten as to spelling either in one or the other record 
is unaccountable." 

We see from the foregoing that the place or locality called Ailewurde 
in Domesday became the Ayleworth of Atkyns' and Rudge's histories 
and the Ayl worth of the old Gazetteer. 

The syllable Ayl has a notable tendency to variations in spelling. 
Strype's Lives has four forms for one name — Aylmei", ^l^^lmer, Ailemer, 
and Elmer — all applied to one individual. Bishop John Aylmer, 
1521—1594. 

The name, however spelled, is a compound word, concerning the

Strypts Memoirs, and not the Aylworth In Naunton parish.

dei'ivatioli and meatiiiig df which there is some diil'erence of opitiioh, ^s 
■will appear from the following references : 

Aylswokth. This name admits of several meanings : Eal, Saxon, 
finished, completed, and worth, a farm-house or village. Ayles, Cor. 
Br., low meadow, flat lands, washed by a river, sea, or lake, and gwerth, 
a worth, firm, house, or village. [Arthur's Etymological Dictionary 
of Family Surnames, New York, 1857. 

" But since here is none other thing woorty Note, let us make toward 
Ailesforde; for there you may see the most assured marke of great 
Antiquitie, that we have within the Shyre of Kent. 

Ailesforde, or Eilesforde * * * called in some Saxon copies, 
Egelesford, that is, the Foorde or passage over the River Egle, or Eile; 
or rather the passage of Ecclef which is a place in this parish ; in others 
Ano-elesford, which is the passage of the Angles, or English men." 
[Lambarde's History of Kent.] 

The name of Eigil, the hero-archer, is probably to be sought at 
Aylesbury, formerly ^glesbyrig, as well perhaps as at Aylesford, 
Ays worth and Aylc<tone. [Isaac Taylor, Words and Places, London, 
1870, p. 223.] The Anglo-saxon woerthig which appears in English 
names in the form of worth bears a meaning nearly the same as ton or 
garth. It denotes a place warded or protected. [lb. p. 80.] Ton or 
garth, a place surrounded by a hedge or rudely fortified by a palisade. 
Originally it meant only a single croft, homestead, or farm. [lb. page 
79.] 

WoKTH. Who shall decide when etymologists disagi-ee? No less 
than six origins have been found for this little word, which has been 
made to stand for a possessioti, a court, a farm, a place, a fort, and an 
island. A very worthy subject lor the etymologist. [Lower, Sug. Sur- 
name?.] 

Worth — properly speaking, any sufficiently warded place, it had 
come to denote a small farmstead at the time the surname arose. 
[Bardsley.] The primary sense oi worth is strength. [Webster.] 

Professor Charles Dod, in a series of articles on the surnames in the 
New York Directoiy, published in the Home Journal of New York, 
makes an elaborate comparison of names based upon their known or 
supposed etymology. In one of these articles, in that journal of August 
17, 1881, the names Aylesworth and Elsworth are brought into Mr. 
Dod's groupings with evident embarrassment as to the true etymologi- 
cal relations of the first member of these compounds. However, in a 
note he arrives at the pi'obably coiTect etymology of the first part of the 
name in Eigil. The note referred to reads as follows: 

^'Elsworth, it is known historically, is homogeneus with Aylesworth, 
in which the first syllable is either a transposed form of Elyas, (old 
spelling of Elius,) or an abbreviation of Aylmev, ElxxiGvic, with the pos- 



SI 

sfessive 5 added. Or, noting that ihe English toWh of Aylesbury ^^ 
originally spelt ^glesbyrig, we may conclude most reasonably that AyU 
and sometimes El, is a contraction of Eigil, one of the gods of Norse 
mythology." 

In Domesday the names of places and persons commencing with the 
syllable Ale, Ail, ^l, Aile, Aihs and Ales, are strikingly numerous, 
and it is not improbable that very many names commencing with tbe 
syllable Al, such as Alumard, Alunardus, Aluerdus, Alwaretone, Alwar- 
ditone, Aluerdestone, Alwaresberie, Alunar'bil, etc., were pronounced 
with the long sound of a as in Ale. 

In the names Agelunardus, Aiglestorp, Aighelestorp, of Domesday, 
and ^glesbyrig of the Saxon Chronicle we see more distinctly the 
source of the first syllable of the family surname — Eigil, as before 
stated.

in the school of Winton, sometime a fellow of this college* a Doctor of 
Medicine and Regiusf Professor under Queen Elizabeth for about fifteen 
years, a man of piety virtue and learning, equally dear while living to

Thomas More died in 16 6. He was a writer as early as 1641. In 
his life given in Athente Oxonienses, Vol. 4, occurs the following: 

♦' But the puritanical rebellion breaking out 'soon after, he took up 
arms for the parliament, became a gent, of the guard to Robert Earl of 
Essex the general of the forces belonging to the said parliament, took 
the covenant, and was made lieutenant of a troop of hoi'se belonging to 
Capt. Richard Aylworth imder the command of Col. Edward Massie." 

In the life of Anthony A' Wood, author of Athene Oxonienses, occurs 
the following : 

"Sunday (June 28, 1585,) after dinner, the University troop headed 
by Dr. Ailwoith, chanc. of the diocese, went seven miles from Oxen, to 
meet and conduct thereto 4 loads of muskets, pikes, i&c. for the scholars 
to train with. There appeared 60 horse divided into two bodies. They 
came in at 7 o'clock at night. Of the said ti'oop the E. of Abendon was

American Traditions, 




jESIDES Arthur Ayl worth, of North Kingstown, R. I., there 
are early traces of but few persons of the name on this side 
of the Atlantic. 

Robert Aleworth, Pemaquid, 1631. [Farmer's Register.] 

Francis Aleworth, Dorchester, freeman. May 15, 1631, was chosen 
lieutenant at a court of Assistants, [Prince ii., Annals 32], but returned 
to Eno-land in March, 1632. At the court in March, 1631, another man 
■with this surname was ordered to go *' as unmeet to inhabit here." [See 
Farmer's Reg. and Savage's Gen. Diet.] 

Ffrancis Aleworth took the freeman's oath in Boston, May 14, 1634. 
[New Eng. Hist, and Gen. Reg.] 

Edward Aleworth (or Aldworth), aged 13, embarked on the ship 
Freelove in London for Bormoodes. June 10, 1635. Elizabeth Aid- 
worth, aged 15, embarked the next ye.ar in London for the same destin- 
ation, -where Bartho Aldsworth owned a plantation and slaves, about 
1680. 

This name is found in the States. Alfred Aldsworth, who, at 
the time of his death, resided in Williamsburg, and -was engaged in 
mercantile business, mar. June, 1835, Eliza Van Brunt, b. Feb. 26, 
1831 , d. July 5, 1851. Their children were, Albert Van B. Aldsworth, 
Eliza Ann, William Henry, Matilda, and Alfred. We have already 
seen th^t there was a family seat in Gloucestershire, Eng., spelled 
Aldesworth. This fact raises a presumption that the Aldsworths origi- 
nated there. 

Jeremiah Ellsworth, Rowley, 1650, m. 2 Dec. 1657, Mary, widow of 
Hugh Smith, and died (3 May, 1704. [Savage' Gen. Diet] 

Christopher Elsworth, New York, as early as 1653, Eldest child 
born 1655. 

Thomas E. Alesworth, b Sept. 22, 1800, mar. April 18, 1822, Mar- 
garet Gibson, in Cumberland Co., Pa. His parentange is unknown to 
his descendan':s. One account is that his father emigrated from Eng- 
land, remained in this country, near Philadelphia, several years, where 



31 

Thomas E. was born, and then returned to England with all his family 
excepting Thomas E. [Wm. B. Butler] Another statement ia that 
Thomas E. A'.esworth went to Cumberland Co , Pa., from some part of 
the State of New York. [Josiah F. Ellsworth.] Thomas E. Alesworth 
was a local preacher in the M, E. Church, and died July 31, 1832. 
Jtlargaret Gibson was dau. of John and Margaret (Reynolds) Gibson, of 
Franklin Co., Pa. Their family consisted of five children: 

Elizabeth M , b. April 17, 1823, m. March 3, 1842, James E. Coan, 
res. Carlisle, Pa. 

John Wesley, b. March 16, 1825, (bachelor), P. O., Slacks Canyon, 
Cal. 

Josiah F., b. July 18, 1827, m. , dw. Williamsburg, Pa. 

Charles Brewster, b. July 17, 1829, m. July 29, 1851, Rebecca Wil- 
son, res. Johnstown, Pa. 

Harriet, b. July 26, 1831, d. :Nov. 2, 1854, Ottumwa, Iowa. 

After his death, his widow maiTied John M. Butler, who died March 
3, 1874. 

Charles B. Alesworth remembers that his mother told him that his 
father lived in or near Philadelphia, and that his ancestors were 
English. 

John W. Alesworth says his father was a carpenter by trade, but that 
he never followed it for a business ; that he was a school teacher at the 
time of his marriage; that he was also a Methodist preacher for a time, 
and a Presbyterian as to doctrinal preferences ; that he thinks he with- 
drew from the Baltimore Conference and only preached occasionally 
while engaged in the saw-mill business. 

The descendants of Arthur Aylworth may never learn the traus- 
Atlantic family history of their ancestor. At present they have no pos- 
itive information respecting his English home. They desire, however, 
no doubt to learn the known and also the probable facts of his histoiy. 
Keeping as far as possible from tlieories, purely speculative, the account 
presented in these pages has been prepared under the indulgence of a 
faint hope that something may yet be ascertained that will determine 
his English ancestry. 

Arthur Aylworth was living in the Narragansett country July 29, 
1679. He wrote his name as here given. The surname has been 
brought down to the present time in this form, which form was not 
uncommon in England at the date here given. 

The Register states that he was a Welshman, born in England. 
Traditions respecting the matter are, as usual, somewhat conflicting. 
One says he was of Welsh descent ; another that he was of English an- 
cestry ; another that he came from England near the border of Wales ; 
another that he came from Monmouthshire, while from many sources 
we are told he came from the west of England. 



32 

Abel Aylsworth, of Arlington, Vt., was born in West Greenwich, R. 
I., in 1745, where he remained until he was about thirty years of age. 
He died in 1830, in his 86th year. The following statement made by 
him in 1824 was committed to writing at the time by Judiah, son of 
Frederick : 

Arthur Aylsworth lived with narrator's father, and died at his house 
in West Greenwich, R. I., in July, 1760; he was narrator's grandfather, 
and died when he was 76 years old. Narrator was named Abel by 
his gi'andmother, called Aunt Mary, the wife of Arthur, and was so 
named for her brother, Abel Franklin, the uncle of Benjamin Franklin. 

The brotbei's of Arthur Aylsworth were : 

Robert, who lived at Exeter, south of \Yest Greenwich. 

John, lived in same town and died at his son-in-law's house, J. 

Rathbun. 
Judiah, lived in Scituate, R. I. 
Philip, lived at Quid Nesick Neck. 

Children of Arthm* Aylsworth and Mary Franklin : 
Philip, small man. 
David, tall man, full six feet. 
James. 
John, 

Judiah, short, thick-set man. 
Freelove, tall, spare, married Tenant. 
Austis, tall, very fleshy, married Colvin. 
Demis, married Phillips; 2d husband Travis. 
Barbara, short, married Jonathan Hill. 

Judiah, married Ruth Draper, daughter of Thomas Draper. 
Children : 

Abel, the narrator, small-sized man; was an ensign in Warner's 
Regt., and went to Quebec with General Montgomery in 
1776. 
Molly, middling size, married Abel Parker. 
Lydia, short woman, mari-ied Thomas Gordon. 
Arthur, short, stout man ; soldier in Revolution. 

Christian, tall and fleshy, married Harris. 

Judiah, small man. 

Stephen, slim and tall ; soldier in Revolution. 
Ruth, tall and large, manned Budlong, 
Judiah married for his second wife Rosanna Stafford, daughter of 
Jonathan Edwards, and widow of Stukely Stafford. Children: 
Wanton, large man, more than common size. 
Perry Greene, shoi't, chunked man. 
Stukely, large man, florid complexion. 
John, large, stout man. 



83 

Judiah died April, 1800, and is buried in Pownal. Vt. lie came from 
West Greenwich to Pownal in 1780, was called Esquire Chad in Rhode 
Island, and for thirty years prior to his removal kept a tavern at West 
Greenwich. The dispute about the way of writing the name dates far 
back. The children of Ruth Draper all wrote th( ir name with the "y." 
The children of Rosanna Edwards all wrote their name Ellsworth. 
Narrator heard his father say that the Saybrook and Windsor Ells- 
worths wrote their name Ellsworth, and had often heard them talk over 
their relationship, and that they were all of the same family. They 
were drovers and took cattle to Newpoit to sell, and were accustomed 
to stop at the tavern of narrator's father. 

Narrator's grandfather told nariator's fath'u- and narrator never to 
drop the "y" out of the name. He said his was the original Welsh 
name, :ind never mixed blood with the Danes. Narrator's grandfather 
took narrator and held up his hand and looked through between the 
first and second fingers on his ritjht hand and told narrator never to 
leave out the "y" as long as he could see the two fingers, and made nar- 
rator, when a small boy, promise he would not. Narrator, when a 
Member of the Vermont Legislature, went lo Boston and examined the 
books of English Heraldry — could find no name of Aylsworth, but 
found tht; English name Ellsworth, and said he should keep the "y'' as 
long ab he lived, but his sons could do as they pleased about it. 

The opinion prevails, founded on tradition, that Arthur Aylworth left 
England on account of religious troubles. His childhood and youth 
must have been in the ti'oublous times of Charles II, What part his 
father or other relatives took, if any, in the contests of that day may 
never be learned. According to tradition his relatives were adherents 
of the Cromwell part)% and some were officer- in his army. 

The first settler in the Narragansett country, or second only to Roger 
Williams, was Richard Smith, Sen., "who for his conscience to God 
left faire possessions in Gloster Shire and adventured with his relations 
and estate to New England," etc.* A ncent town history of Rhode 
Island says that Ricliaid Smith, Sen., emigrated to this country in con- 
sequence of the persecutions practiced under the reign of Charles I. and 
that his son, Richard Smith, Jr., was a major in the service of Crom- 
well. From the circumstances it is probable that the son did not come 
to America for quite a number of ytars after his father came f The 
names of Kichnrd Smith, Jr., and Arthur Ayhvorth are associated in a 
petition to the king in 1679. If the latter came from Gloucestei'shire, 
where was the seat of the Aylworth Manor? Personal associations in 
England may have directed Arthur Aylworth 's course to Narragansett. 



• Roger WlUams, July 24, 1679. 

t Cromwell did not receive his commission until he was upwards of forty-flve years 
Of age. [Macaulay.] Richard Smith, Sen,, was J^ere several years previous lo 1644.

The date previously given. July 29, 1679, is the earliest recorded date 
yet found fixing his presence in this country. This date ia that of the 
petition before referred to, and has the following heading: 

To the King's Most Excellent Majpsty. The humble Petition and Re- 
monstrance of your subjects, the inhabitants of the Narragansett 
Country, in the southerne parts of New England, called by your 
Majesty's Commissioners the King's Province.* 

* ♦ * In the times of these troubles and contests, the Indians in- 
solent and very injurious to your petitioners the inhabitants, not without 
private abetters, as was suspected, killed our cattle, destroyed our crea- 
tures and plundered some of our houses, soe that wee were hardly able 
to live among them; some of us loosing in some few yeares neare 150 
head of cattle. And when complaint was made to our superiors at 
Rhode Island, wee could have no reliefe, which made some of us apply 
ourselves to the Massachusetts Collony for redress of these outrages 
and enormities committed against us, according to an order of your 
Majesty's granted unto them about the yeare 1663, but still were with- 
out i-emedy ; which many of us saw would end in a warr with the In- 
dians if not timely and wisely prevented. Which afterwards came on 
apace, to the ruin and destruction of your petitioners' visible estates in 
that Province So that it became a desolate wildei-nesse againe ; and 
instead of Christian people, replenished with howling wolves and other 
wild creatures. But it pleased the Lord in his due time to put a period 
to these warrs, and your petitioners the former inhabitants, went over 
from Rhode Island, whither we retreated with the little wee had left, 
where it cost us one half of our cattle to keep the rest and carry ua 
over. So cold was their charity to their poore neighbours in distress; 
and then and since imposed taxes on us, when your petitioners had 
hardly anything left for the subsistence of themselves and their little 
ones; and settled in the Kings Province againe, when very dangerous 
living in [cellars and holes] under ground, till we got a little before 
hand to rebuild, which with our owne industry and hard lahoure, we 
hope in time to effect, if not discouraged and hindered by many that 
threaten to turn us off. 

May it please your Majesty, this being in short, the true state of affairs 
of the Narragansett Country and the people there inhabiting, from the 
fir&t settlement to the present time. Your petitioners, the inhabitants 
thereof, do humbly supplycate your Majesty, as you have been pleased 
to send your gracious letters to the foure Collonj s of New England

strictly to will and require them to take care of the inhabitants there at 
present, so that you would in your princely wisdow and Roy.iU bounty 
and justice, for the future vouchsafe an eye of favour ujton the poore 
inhabitants your petitioners, the tirst settlers thereof, in a more peculiar 
manner, who have been at great cost and charge, and have laid out 
(most of us) all wee have in this world upon the same, and are not iible 
to subsist, if removed from thence; it being now become in a manner 
our native country to some of us, and is as to many our children who 
were there borne; and we hope and promise for ourselves and children 
that shall succeed us, that your Majesty in no part of New England 
shall have more loyall and faithful subjects than your pesent petitioners; 
humbly requesting and desiring, that your Majesty would put an end 
to these differences about the government thereof, which has been so 
fatall to the prosperitie of the place; animosities still arising in people's 
minds, as they stand affected to this or that government, and may be 
wronged and injured by either governraenl of these that take place, the 
transactions of former things being fresh in memory, an impartiall and 
equall judicature being the great and earness the desires of your peti- 
tioners to live under, being wearied out with the former contests and 
the troubles wee have mett with from both Collonies commanding us, 
do all of us unanimously and with one consent supplicate your Majesty 
not to leave us to the goverment and dispose of those that seek advan- 
tages Jigainst us. The country being large and able to containe many 
families, may make an entire Provence, if your Majcstye see cause. 
And your petitioners shall ever pray, &c. And subscribe your Majesty's 
humble, loyall and obedient subjects.

First Generation. 




E ai"e now prepared to present a fuller account of the irami- 
^^ grant's family, recapitulating some of the main facts already 
noted. 

1. ARTHUR A YLWORTH came to America from either England 
or "Wales previous to July 29, 1679,* possibly previous to King Philip's 
War, married Mary Brown, of Providence, a daughter probablyf of 
Rev. John and Mary (Holmes) Brown, and settled permanently in 
Quidnesset, where he died between Nov. 7, 1725, and Sept. 13, 1726. 
Her death doubtless preceeded his a number of years. The natural 
order of their children's names is not known, but the names of the sons 
apart from the names of the daughters, as given the following lists,- 
stand probably in their natural order, excepting the name of Thomas, 
though John may have been younger than Philip: 

2. i Robert (2) eldest son, m. Ann Davis. 

3. ii Arthur (2) m. Mary Franklin. 



• July 29, 1679, Arthur Aylworili and forty-one otners of Narragansett signed a 
petition to the King praying thut lie "would put au end to these differences about 
the government thereof, which hath been so fatal to the prosperity of the place; ani- 
mosities bMU arising In peoples' nilaus as they siaud affected to this or that govern- 
ment." [The K.lltor.] 

t The prohability that she was the daughter of Rev. John Brovrn rests upon a very 
strong presumption at least. As a matter of fMct her home was In providence, and 
she had nephews by the name of Andrew and John Brown. The latter a successiul 
merchant of Newport, owner of S'liloping, etc. 

Rev. Jame.s P. iloot:— I think that .Mary, who married Arthur Aylworth, mn.st have 
been the daughter of Hev. .foiia uro'.vn, son of Rev. Chad. That they had a daughter 
Mary would be very natural, as his wife was Mary, daughter of Kev. Obadlah 
Holmes, the much persecuted and whipped Baptist saint. That Mary Aylworth 
would name a child Ellzabeih, after ht-r father's mother, and Chad, after her grand- 
father, would be natural. On tlu' supoositlon tiiat she was a daughter of Rev. John 
Brown and Mary (Holmes), Kev. James' son, Andrew, would be her nephew, who was 
born Sept. 20, 1703. Tlie .John Bi'owu who died at Newport, 1764, aged 6S years, was 
undoubtedly son of Kn.sign Joim Hrown, son of Kev. John. He was born March 28, 
169 T. Both Were nephews of Mary if sue was a daughter of Rev. John and Mary- 
Brown. 

Note.— This supposition bas been proved correct. [Edltor.j

The chaotic records at Wickford contain tr^ices of Arthur Ayhvorth's 
will and codicil. Internal evidences indicate that both instruments 
were drawn by the same person. In giving below what remains of the 
record the spelling of surnames and the grammatical construction of 
the text is presented unchanged. Whenever the sense of the lost text 
can be assumed with any degree of confidence an attempt is made to 
supply the same in brackets, regard being paid to forms common at the

There are complete or partial I'ecords of seven receipts given to the 
executor for the legacies in Arthur Aylworlh's will, all "in full" except 
perhaps that of Chad : 

*' Robert Ayleworth," by mark, Oct. 13, 1626. 
"Arthur Aylworth," by autograph, Kov. 25, 1726. 
"John Aylworth," by mark, Oct. 7, 1726.

John Green for his wife Mary Green — date destroyed. 
Peleg Card for his wife Elizabeth Card, Nov. 23, 1726. 
John Davis for his wife Maitha Davis, Dec. 1. 1727. 

It is evident the author of the Register did not consult the Rhode 
Island town records. The North Kingstown records then in their eu- 
tii-ety would have furnished him abundant material. Little can be ob- 
tained from them now relating to years previous to 1700. 

The immigrant was appointed to some kind of inspectoi'ship Feb. 6, 
1698-9. He was elected ratemaker May, 1699, and viewer of fences 
and supervisor of highways June 5, 1699. He deeded a quantity of 
land to Henry Tibbets Sept. 21, 1697. Neither the bounds, number of 
acres, nor consideration can be ascertained. The deed w.is acknowl- 
edged October, 1697. The record of his signature remains distinct.

within the present limits of West Greenwich, R. I., to which locality, 
then a part of East Greenwich, they moved from North Kingstown 
before June 29, 1723. He bought of William Wanton, June 22, 1724, 
for £100 320 acres of land, it being the " 3L8t farm in B^ or last divis- 
ion," and was faxmer and inn-keeper. She was younger than he but 
died first. Working in the hay field, he was taken sick on a Thm'sday 
in July, 1761, and died the following Sunday, aged 76 years. His will 
was made July 4, 1761, probably during his sickness, and proved Aug. 
1st, following; the will being signed Arthur Aylworth, and the personal

' His will was quite an elaborate Instrumpnt, but the record suffered so much from 
nre that the relics are or little help. It appears, howev.-r, Irom It that he divldi-s a 
sum of money between Ann Aylsworth and Dorcas Place, grand children perhaps, 
and the Indlcat oas are that there may have been other own children than those 
contained In the list. He certainly had a grandson, Christopher Aylsworth, the sub- 
ject of a special sketch hereafter. 

The town council of East Greenwich, Aug. 3, 1723, noticed the fact that "William 
Avlworth Is asain come to reside at the housfi of John Aylworth," and took such 
action as was customary when persons without certificates from their own town 
were changing r^-sla^-nce, U. prevent thPir oi tainlng residence and theieby possibly 
becoming a burden to ihe town. As this was the second time or more he had lived 
with John Aylworth s family he was doubtless a near relative. AH tradition relat- 
ing TO the Immiiinint Indicates that he came al>ue to Am^ rlca, «nl that none of his 
near kindred afterward associated wlih htm. If 11 should be presumed th:it this 
per-ion was the deaf mute and that the name Thomas was a mistake, there la noih- 
Ing apparent, at present, to sustain the presumption.

March 30, 1733, f sometime after which they moved into old Scituate, 
and settled within the present limits of the town of Foster, R. I., where 
she died. He married (2) Maiy Wood, who was living when his will

a son of Benjamin (2) Greene — John (1) — . He gave a receipt, Oct 13,

1726, for his wife's legacy in the settlement of the immigrant's estate. 
The following is taken from an article by Ray Greene Hu'ing in the 
Narragansett Historical Register, Vol. II , No. 3, pp. 167-8, relating to 
this man and his family : 

"He is styled 'Lieut. John' in 1732. On Jan. 9. 1733-4, being then of 
East Gi'eenwich, he purchased 149 3-4 acres of land in what is now West 
Greenwich, it being ' the first farm in the first division in the right of 
Samuel Cranston,' and in 1743 sold farms formerly belonging to his 
father and brother Caleb, both deceased. The Cranston farm was the 
site of his homestead. He married (2) Aug. 7, 1741, Priscilla Bowen, 
of Swansea, Mass., (having a daughter Freelove Bowen), who survived 
him His will, made March 26, proved April 25, 1762, alludes to two 
sons deceased, in addition to those named below. 

Children — order uncertain.

The authority credited with the above, contains additional informa- 
tion respecting the families of Philip, Benjamin, Thomas, Josiah, and 
Amos named above. 

8. ELIZABETH (2)— Arthur (1)— married (1) Dolliver.* 

Of their family history nothing has been discovered. Before 1726 she 
married (2) Peleg Card. She died probably before his will was made, 
Sept. 17, 1764. If she was his first wife they had the children named 
in the list and perhaps others of whom we have no account.f Order of

1737-8, when lettei-s of administration issued to Martha Davis, late wife 
and now widow of John Davis, of said East Greenwich, yeoman, de- 
ceased. Inventory, consisting mostly of household goods, farming im- 
plements, and smith tools, amounted to the sura of £194— ISs. — 6d. 
Arthur Aylworth, of East Greenwich, and Peleg Card, of North Kings- 
town, were bondsmen. Nothing further has been discovered respecting 
their history.

Emigration From Rhode Island. 



This seems to have been mainly in the direction of the Hudson River 
country, and particularly to the eastern tier of counties in New York 
and southern part of Vermont. The following list, though by no means 
complete, will aid to a view of this subject.

Third Generation. 



10. ROBERT (3)— Robert (2), Arthur (1)— married Susanna Rey- 
nolds,* daughter of Joseph Reynolds perhaps,! and Aug. 11, 1742, was 
living on a fiirm adjoining the farms of his father, Robert, and brother, 
Ephraim, in Exeter, where, on July 2, 1764, he deeded twenty acres of 
land, perhaps his homestead, to Arthur Aylsworth, of West Greenwich, 
for £176— 17s.— 6d. He, or his son Robert, was a member of the S. D. 
Baptist Church of Westerly, 1768. Thek children, so far as known, 
were: 

i Mary (4) b. June 12, 1739, m. Jeremiah Niles t 

ii Sarah (4) b. March 5, 1740, m. Ellis Austin § 

29. iii Robert (4) b. Feb. 1, 1742, m. Rosanna Straight. 
iv Susanna (4) b. Sept. 16, 1745. 

V Elizabeth (4) b. Aug. 16, 1747. 

30. vi Joseph (4) b. April 1, 1750, m. Freelove Coy. 
vii Amey (4) b. May 18, 1752, d. Aug. 28, 1754. 

viii Amey (4) b. Sept. 4, 1754. 

Albina Ellsworth, of Ated, N. J., says that one of these daughters 
married a Hurd and another a Mills. 

11. SARAH ? (3)— Robert (2), Arthur (1)— married Jabez Tucker, 
as her mother's will indicates. Her name, Sarah, is presumed, because 
the name of Sarah Tucker was written on the lower left hand corner of 

• . . . " day 1T3T Robert Aleworth Junr and Susanna Reynolds of Nonli Kings- 
town having been publlsiied according [to law] came before me and was marryed

t Joseph Reynolds' will was made April 6, 1722, and proved same month and year. 
In which he mentions his wife Susanna, eldest s.on Joseph, son John, two sona, 
George and Samuel, three youngest sons, no names found; daughter, Elizabeth 
Rogers, and my other daughters, Susanna, Deborah and Mary.

ft receipt Jabez Tucker gave for his daughter's legacy. They certainly 
had one child : 

i Hannah. 

If Elizabeth Foster, a minor, who, by her guardian, received the same 
amount, and at the same time as Hannah, in the settlement of Sarah's 
mother's estate, was Sarah's daughter, she may have been either a mar- 
ried daughter of Jabcz Tucker or Sarah's daughter by a former mar- 
riage. In either case, if Sarah's daughter, we should say she had also: 

ii Elizabeth, whose surname was Foster, or who may have mar- 
ried Foster.* 

12. MARY (3)— Robert (2), Arthur (1) -married, Sept. 28, 1739, 
Nathaniel Pettis. He may have been the person of this name who was 
born May 17, 1714, son of William and Mary Pettey. They had: 

i Robert. 

13. EPHRAIM (3)— Robert (2), Arthur (1)— married Alice Pettey, 
who Wis !>oi'n .June 4, 1718, and who was a daughter of William and 
Mary Pettey, of Chiirlestown, R. I. They had. by deed from his father, 
Aug. 11, 1742, fifty acres of land adjoining his father's homestead, in 
Exeter, but Sept. 13, 1760, they were living in West Greenwich. He 
died before Aug. 11, 1767, at which time the inventory of his personal 
property was presented to the Exeter town council, and his son William 
appointed administrator. f Their children, so far as known, were: 

i William (4) b. Oct. 3, 1744, d. before Sept. 13, 1768, probably 

single, 

ii Anna (4) b. Aug. 3, 1746. 

iii Mary (4) b. Feb. 13, 1748, m. probably Elisha Parker, 

iv Ephraim (4) b. Dec. 2, 1750. 

31. V Alice (4) m. Nov. 18, 1773, Moses Clark, probably, 

vi Nathan (4).

t William made his will June 21, 1768. In which he mentions all of his brothers and 
sisters in the above list. Under this will sixty acres of land were sold, Aug. 10, 1774.

This family lived about three-fourths of a mile from Lewis City, and 
northwest from the Four Corners meeting-house, and on what was 
called Black River. Several children are said to have died there and it 
was thought the place was an unhealthy one. Alice was taken into 
Connecticut, where she remained some time in her girlhood with a 
family by the name of Douglass. A tradition states thai several mem- 
bers of the family were celebrated sleep-walkers. [Abigail, daughter 
of Moses Chirk, Jr.] 

14. PHILIP (3)— Arthur (2), Arthur (1)— married Elizabeth 

They probably lived in East Greenwich until after the birth of their 
sixth child, since the record of the birtlis of six children are found there. 
The others aie found in Coventry. His will, made Nov. 14. 1789, says 
that he was old and feeble, and mentions the names of all his children 
given below, except John and Phebe. Arthur Aylworth deed to "my 
son Philip," date May 29, 1742, land in West Greenwich.

Philip (3) made a gift deed to each of his two sons, Philip (4) and 
John (4), of land in Coventry, Feb. 12, 1761. At some uncertain date, 
between the years 1842 and 1848. Rev. James P Aylworth, in writing 
to his son Oiin. gave a briif outline of family connections, in which he 
refers to his grandfather B'^njimin as having had two brothers, Philip 
and James, no allusion being made to the sisters. If John (4) above 
married and reared a family, the fact, very likely, would have been 
familiar to Rev. James P. Aylworth, whose father was bom in 1755. 
John's receiving a gift of land from his fiilher at the age of twenty-two 
is presumptive evidence of but not proof of his marriage. 

Bowen (4) Aylworth remembered the visit of his mother's brother, a 



51 

sea captain, to Canada in sailoi''s uniform. If we may suppose Bowen 
(4) to have btjen fi^e yi^avs of age at the timn the visit took pla.o. then 
WK have a date about six years prior to the making of the will of Philip 
(3), John's father, who does not mention him He probably died or 
was lost at sea during this time.

15. DAVID (3)— Arthur (2), Arthur (1) — of West Greenwich, 
cooper, married March 8, 1741-2, Martha Franklin, daughter of James, 
of Scituate. James Franklin's will, made Aug. 8, 1748, proved Nov. 8, 
1756, mentions : sons, Philip, James, Gidton, Ichabod, Uriah, and 
Elisha; daughters, Lydia Rowland, Abigail Handa, and Martha Ayls- 
worth ; and grand-daughter Sarah Lee [Scit. Rec] David(6) of Pecks- 
ville. Pa., says his family consisted of two sons, Rufus, who died young, 
David, and some daughters, and that he went to sea a number of tiiues 
though he did not become a regular sailor. His name is found in the 
town records as early as 1742, and was surveyor of highways, 1757, and 
constable, 1761. He seems to have dwelt in Coventry in 1753 and sev- 
eral years following, but subsequently in West Greenwich. His wife's 
signature appears on deeds he makes until July, 1783, when he alone 
makes a deed to his son David (4) of land in West Greenwich, identi- 
fying himself as David Aylsworth, of West Greenwich, but now resid- 
ing in Pownal, Vt. His wife, Martha, was living Feb. 2, 1778, when 
they made a deed of gift to their " loving and trusty grand-son Black- 
burn Franklin Aylsworth." [W. G. Rec] This could not have been 
David's son, then only two years of age. In his will, made Aug. 9, 
1791, and proved last Monday in November, 1791, he mentions his wife, 
Ruth, to whom he gives the improvement and profit of his homestead 
farm in West Greenwich during her widowhood in lieu of dower, and 
after her death or marriage which may first happen then to, etc. To a 
daughter his land and buildings in Coventry; and to others his estnte 
both real and personal in Stamford, Vt. In his will he mentions all the 
children's names below except that of Rufus : 

i Rufus (4), said to have died young.

1 fi. JAMES (3)— Arthur (2), Arthur (1) —married Mary Wood, Feb. 
8, 1733. [N. K. Rec], daughter of William, of East Greenwich. The 



54 

history of this family is not certainly known beyond the record [E. G. 
Rec] of the birth of their eldest son : 

Eddy (4) b. March 15, 1733-4. 

It appears that James Alworih bought a piece of farm property in 
Amenia, Dutchess Co., N. Y., in 1762, and in 1819 conveyed the same 
to his two sons, Henry and Samuel Wigton Alworth. Henry subse- 
quently conveyed to John Egglestoue in 1823. [County Records by 
Edw. Elsworth.] James Alsworth. Jr., was one ot the •' Assoc-iators" 
of Amenia Precinct, Dutchess Co., June and July, 1775. Same list 
contains name of William Alsworth. [Cal. N. Y. Hist, MSS., Vol. I.,

18. ANTHONY (3)— John (2), Arthur (1)— married Sarah Brigga, 
dwelt in East Greenwich, and died in the Expedition against Crown 
Point. 

Anthony Aylworth son of John Aylworth and Sarah Briggs daughter 
of Richard Briggs both of East Greenwich were married Jan. 9^11 1728-9 
by Thomas Spencer J. P. [E. G. Rec] 

Richard Briggs, "being very sick and weak in body," made his will 
March 29, 1733; mentioned his wife. Experience; sons, Richard, Francis, 
John and Caleb; daughters, Sarah Aylworth and Ann King; sons, 
Philip and Daniel; daughters, Mary and Adre Briggs; grand-sons, 
Richard Briggs, Caleb Tarbox and Richard Matteson. Proved April 
28, 1733. Personal estate, £484. [E. G. Rec] 

" Whereas Anthony Aylsworth of East Greenwich . . . enlisted 
himself and went as a soldier in the Expedition against Crown Point in 
the regiment of soldiers raised by the Colony aforesaid, under command 
of Colonel Christopher Harris and thex-e in said expedition died intes- 
tate," etc. The town council appointed "Sarah Aylsworth, the late 
8 



58 

wife and now the relict widow of the said intestator," administratrix, 
Aug. 1, 1757. Invectory, 313£— 19s.— 9d. [E. G. Rec] 

The East Greenwich records afford the dates of the birth of five chil- 
dren. The name in the record is Aylwoith. 

Children. 

i William (4) b. Feb. 14, 1728. 
ii Thomas (4) b Jnn. 14, 1731. 

45. iii Richard (4) b. Feb. 5, 1733-4, m. Lydia Straight, Sept. 20, 

1767. 
iv Sarah (4) b. June 18, 1736. Anna Vaughn said her Aunt 
Sarah was blind many years. No recoi'd of her maiTiage 
has been discovered. 
V Elizabeth (4) b. March 14, 1738-9, m. EHsha Barker of E. G., 
of Elihha of North Kingstown, Dec. 17, 1758. [E. G. Rec] 

46. vi Anthony (4) m. Molly Marks, of Warwick, Nov 26, i762. 
vii Huth (4) m. Isaac Gardner, of Isaac, Oct. 11, 1767. [War. 

Rec] 

47. viii John (4) b. June 14, 1748, m Bethana Fry March 4, 1771. 

The settlement of the estate left the widow in destitute circumstances, 
apparently, as the I'ecord shows that the personal estate lacked 63£ — 
23 — 3d. of paying the debts against it, which she paid, perhaps, by the 
sale of hei- home, for (hristcpher Aylswo'-th sold three-fourths of an 
acre tif land Dec. 21, 1759 for 37£, it being "the same messuage or lot 
of land that my Uni-le Anthony Aylsworth lormerly walled in by itself 
and dwelt on." However this may have been, the town council clerk 
made the following entry March 25, 1758: 

" So that it appears to this town council that the said J^arah Ayls- 
worth has fully administered on said estate and her bonds be given up." 

We know that John (4) was reared in another family, and there is 
reason for believing Anthony (4) was also bound out. That the minor 
children were bound out is a natural inference. 

19. ARTHUR (3)— John (2), Arthur (1) -became a freeman May 

3, 1743, married Almy , and dwelt in West Greenwich, R. I. The 

ceni^us of 1774 gives as his fnmily two males over 16, and two females 
over 1 . A dt^ed which appears to have been made by this Arthur 
Sept. 14, 1775, designates Aniey as his wife. David Culver adminis- 
tered upon his estate, and the inventory of his personal properly ren- 
dered Oct. 14, 1794, amounted to 35£ 168. 

Hh obtained of Wm. Reynolds, Feb. 9, 1742-3, a forty acre lot, which 
is still none by his name. It appears that for some reason his family of 
children, axcept his son Joseph, left Rhode Island. It is stated that his

S9 

Wife left the chiirlreh, but at what time they emigrateci has Hot teeti 
ascertained. Arthur died on his homestead. His son Joseph continued 
to live on the lot near where be also died. Two lonely gi-aves are 
pointed out as being the graves of Arthur and his son Joseph. The 
title to the lot did not pass to Joseph, who dwelt there alone for a num- 
ber of year-! previous to his death. The lot was sold by the town coun- 
cil for taxes, and about ten years after Josephs death, Burton Briggs 
acquired title from the heirs of Arihur that could be found. 

The children of Arthur (3) and Almy, so far as we have account, 
were as follow s : 

Jonathan (4) b. Feb. 4, 1729, m. Sarah 

Joseph (4) 3d son. b. April 19, 1735. 
Silas (4) 4ih son, b. May 17, 1737, m. Ruth Whitford. 
Almy (4) 2d dau., b. Dec. 28, 1739, m. Caleb Gardiner. 
Russell (4) 3d dau., b. March 2, 1742, m. Peleg Thomas. 
. ? m. David Leonard ? 

20. JOHN (3)— John (2), Arthur (l)--married Anne Gardner, who 
■was a daughter of Samuel Gardner, from whose will,* made June 27, 
1762, the fact is obtained, [E. G. Ree.] and from which we learn that 
they had two daughters, at least :t 

i Waite. 
ii Martha. 

21. MARY (3)— John (2), Arthur (1)— m. May 18, 1735. Joseph 
Olin, of North Kingstown, S(m of John. [E. G. Rec] 

The births of three of their children are recorded : 

i Rnhama (4) b. March 7, 1735-6. 
ii Elizabeth (4) b. June 2, 1737. 
iii Mary (4) b. Jan. 10, 1738 9. 

Her name appears in her father's will as Mary Bennett. 

22. ARTHUR (3)- Philip (2). Arthur (1) was called Capt. Arthur, 
and was married to Freelove Dyer, daughter of Edward Dyer, and

dwelt on his f;ither's homestead, the same land which constituted the 
immigrant's homestead, in Quidnesset. 

Edward Dyer's will was made Aug. 5, 1776, and proved April 21, 
1788, the record of which has been injured, but it mentions his son, Ed- 
ward, his grand-son, Bit [rat] Dyer, his daughter, Froelove Aylsworth, 
wife of Arthur Aylsworth ; his daugliter, Hannah, wife of Richard Card, 
deceased ; his daughtei', Phebe Dyer, and his son, John. The first be- 
quest is lost, and one certainly, perhaps two, lost towards the latter part 
of the will. •>' >• 

The will of Arthur (3) was made in the year 1708, the record of 
which is among the mutilated records of North Kingstown, and though 
in fragments, shows that the original was quite an elaborate instrument. 
The following is a brief abstract of the same : 

To eldest son Jeremiah 70 acres with dwelling house and other build- 
ings thereon, bounded E. by high way, N. part by land of Christcpher 
Allen and part by land of Jonathan Allen. [Record wanting] 

To John Dimond the profits of 20 acres with a dwelling house [record 
wanting] end of the lot of land which I purchased of my brother Job 
Aylsworth, bounded W. by Jands of belonging to the heirs of Samuel 
Gardner, S. partly on land of John Spink, part on land of Silas Allen, 
and part on land of Christopher Allen, E. and N. by my other lands, 
which profits of 20 acres and bnildings I give to John Dimon upon his 
supporting my grand daughter Mercy Aylsworth, etc. 

To son Arthur all the remainder of my farm where I now live con- 
taining 120 aci-es with dwelling house and other buildings thereon, 
bounded N. on lands of Berj. Tanner, dec'd, E. on land of Jonathan 
Allen and part on land given to my son Jeremiah and partly on land I 
give [record wanting] Aylsworth and party [here is wanting four to six 
or eight lines of the record, probably] heirs of Samuel Gardner, dec'd, 
and partly on lands of Frances Reynolds and Henry Reynolds, which 
lands to Arthur Aylsworth during his natural life and after his decease 
all the same lands (saving 20 acres lying east of [wanting] 20 acres 
said Dimon is to have tlie [wanting] of which land I purchased of my 
brother Job Alesworth) unto my said Arthur's two sons Hazard Ayls- 
worth and William Aylsworth, equally. 

To my grandson Samuel Ajlsworth son of my son Arthur, after the 
decense oi my said son Arthur, the Fo — [Forty ?] acres of land which 
I purchased of my brother Job Aylsworth that is including the 20 acres 
which I have given John Dimond after my grand daughter is supported 
out of the same. 

[Here follows bequests to two daughters, (and perhaps other be- 
qutstt») the substance of which is unknown.] 

To (laughters .^arah 'innntr, Mary Essex wife of Richard Essex, 
Freelove Hill, afoiesaid, Catharine Sweet wife of Samuel Sweet, 



61 

To my grand daughter Rhoda Hill daughter of my daughter Anna 
Hill, dec'd, 

If Abigail Aylsworth the wife of ray son Arthur should survive him, 
then she shall have profits of 1-3 the estate devised to her husband, so 
long as she shall remain his widow. Son William Ex'r. 

Freelove (Dyer) died Sept. 26, 1790, in her seventieth year, and Capt. 
Arthur (3) March 18, 1801, in the eighty-first year of his age. This 
family of children consisted of four sons and five daughters The order 
of their names not known : 

53. i Jeremiah (4) m. July 24, 17G8, Phebe Allen; dwelt in Quid- 

nesett. 
64. ii William (4) b. Feb. 2, 1753, m. Catharine Havens, June 5, 

1774; emigrated to Columbia Co., N. Y. 
55. iii Dyer (4) m. Mary Spencer, March 3, 1773; dwelt in Quid- 

nesett. 
50. iv Arthur (4) b. Nov. 15, 1763, m. Abigail Dyer, Sept. 14, 1783; 

dwelt in Qnidnesett. 

57. v Sarah (4) m. Benj. Tanner, Nov. 2, 1765; dwelt in Qnidne- 

sett. 

58. vi Mary (4) m. Richard Essex, July 24, 1768; dwelt in Quidne- 

sett. 
vii Nancy (4) [Anna ?] m. John Hill; nothing known of their 

history, 
viii Catharine (4) m. Samuel Sweet of East Greenwich, Nov. 30, 

j781 ; dwelt in Woodstock, Ct. He died Aug. 5, 1821. 

59. ix Freelove (4) m. (1) Carr. (2) Nathan Hill; dwelt in 

Exeter, R. I. 

2.3. JOB (3)- Philip (2,) Arthur (1)— married Sarah Clark, [Ayls- 
worth Register] of whom nothing has been definitely ascertained as yet. 
The will of Elisha Clark, of North Kingstown, made March 20, 1750, 
and proved April, 1755, may allude to her as his daughter, Sarah 
Clarke, to whom he gave £200 in bills of public credit, one milch cow, 
and in addition a general setting out for housekeeping* Will also 
mentions daughters, Mary and Abigail, and sons, Benjamin, Thomas, 
Joseph and Elisha, Joseph was executor. The legacies were to be 
paid to the daughters at twenty years of age or on the day of marriage, 
which might first happen. 

The date ot their mari"iage is not known, but his name occurs in the 
town records under circumstances which lead to the conclusion that he 
settled in Quidnesett before 1760, and his family is referred to in tlie 
records Jan. 14, 1762. undm* circumstances which may indicate her de- 
cease b' fore that tims but this i^ only an inference. 

Job Aylworth of North Kingstown and Sarah Aylworth of Coventry 



daughter of I^hilip, Wei'e married March 26, 1765. [CoV. Rec] She 
was a daughter of Philip (3)— Arthur (2), Arthur (1). 

He bought hind in Coventry of Benj. Bates, March 25, 1767, and Oct. 
5, 1768, sold the same to Francis Bates. "The 1-2 part of a certain 
logway adj )ining to a river by the name Mossup [Moosup] River in 
Coventry whereon stands one corn mill and is a conveniency for a saw- 
mill, together with 1-2 said corn-mill, it being the same logway I 
bought of Bonj. Bates, together with 1-2 the privilege of the stream 
and dam whereon said mill stands with privilege to erect a new saw- 
mill," etc. 

He sold, Sept. 8, 1772, " the far.n on which I now live,"' 102 acres in 
Coventry for £90, and probably emigrated soon after. The Aylsworth 
Register says : " he resided sometime in Schodack, N. Y., then moved 
to Canada." It is the opinion of some of his descendants that he dwelt 
in Saratoga Co., N. Y., awhile. He entered Canada in the scarce 
year, 1788, and settled in Ernesttown, near Bath, where he, his wife, 
and three children died during the prevalence of spotted fever in 1803. 

He was a man of resolute character. Having a distressing felon ho 
removed the affected finger himself with a chisel and mallet. 

Their family of children, so far as known, were as follows: 

60. i Otho Nial (4) m. Charlotte Bowerman, 1805, and dwelt in 

Ernesttown. 

61. ii Job (4) b. about 1767, m. Sarah Martin, 1795. He had his 

fjither's homestead. 

ill Esek (4) b. Oct 28, 1768, in North Kingstown. [Cov. Rec] 
He probably died young. 

iv Sarah (4). She was nearly speechless from sickness in child- 
hood, and died, unmarried, at her brother Bowen Ayls- 
worth's, in 1846. 

62. V Elsey (4) b. Nov. 10, 1772, in Rhode Island, m, John Bristol, 

Dec. 8, 1787, and dwelt in Ernesttown. 

Elizabeth (4) m. Morris Brisco, and dwelt near Bath. 

Esther (4) m. Robert Perry, and d. 1803. 

Bowen (4) b. Feb. 27, 1778. m. Hannah Perry, Nov. 21, 1797, 
and dwelt in Ernesttown. 

Benjamin (4) d. in 1794, about 14 years of age. 

Haskell (4) d. in 1803, about 21 years of age. 

Catharine (4) m. William Rogers, and emigrated to the West- 
ern States. 
xii John (4) d. in 1803, about 16 years of age. 

Bowen was a sui'name common in Rhode Rhode Island at the time 
Job emigrated, tbouj^h how it originated as a Christian name in this 
family h is not been explained.

24. PHILIP (3)— Philip (2), Arthur (1)— married, July 1, 1753, 
Deborah (Waite) Dyer, of Exeter, widow of William Dyer, late of 
North Kingstown, brother of Freelove Dyer, wife of Philip s brother, 
Arthur Aylsworth, 

Letters of administration were issued to Deborah Dyer, widow of 
Wm. Dyer, dec'd, (Jet. 9, 1749. [N. K. Kec] First inventory amounted 
to upwards of £300. Two others were afterwards presented, amount 
not known. In the year 1760 Barat Dyer desired the town council to 
approve of Philip Aylworth as his guardian. [N. K. Rec] 

Philip Aylworth, of Noith Kingstown, made to his son, Philip, Jr., a 
gift deed of 200 acres of hind in West Greenwich, dated Dec. 16, 1754. 
[W. G. Rec] This land was south of the land of Arthur (2) Aylworth. 

Philip Aylworth, of West Greenwich, and Deborah Aylworth, his 
wife, sold land in West Greenwich to William Barker, Sept. 19, 1769. 
The signatures were both autographic, and the names spelled Aylworth. 
[W. G. Rec] 

It is probable that Philip and Deborah emigrated about this time, for 
on the 18th day of February, 1772, they deeded laud in West Gr euwich 
to Judiah Aylworth. The deed says : " Philip Aylworth of New Brii- 
ain Dutchess Co. N. Y.," and mentions his wife Deborah Aylworth. 
His signature is autographic, and spelled "Aylworth." Her name is 
not signed to this deed As near as can be learned they went to Canada 
about 1790 or 1791 ; remained in Ernesttown for a time, but crossed into 
Prince Edward County, where she died, probably at the house of her 
son Barret Dyer, advanced in years and not long after their arrival in 
Prince Edward County. Philip went back to Columbia Co., N. Y , but 
returned to Prince Edward County, where he died suddenly, when in 
the field at the home of his grand-daughter's husband, Asa Wtrden, ut 
the age of perhaps 90 years. 

Deborah (Waite) had a sister, Lucretia Hopkins, who died in Rhode 
Island, and also three brothers, Benjamin, Simuel, and George Waite, 
who went to Prince Edward County after she died, and who died there, 
probably. By her first husband she had two children, at least. Barret 
and VV'aty, who both went to Prince Edward County. Waty died at her 
brother's house in middle life, but Barret lived to old age, on the south 
side of East Lake. 

Children of Philip and Deborah of whom we have an account : 

67. i Caleb (4) m. Huldah Weightman. 

68. ii Henry (4) m. Mary Huntley. 

iii Sally (4) or Sarah, " who went with them, or with w horn 
they went to Canada." Nothing further of her history has 
been found. 

The author is indebted to Mrs. Elizabeth Wallis, of Pictoro, Prince 
Edward Co., Ont , for some particulars contained in the above account.

25. THOMAS (3) -Chad (2), Arthur (l)-was born Aug. 21, 1726, 
baptized Oct. 16, 1726, at Trinity Church, Newport; admitted freeman 
May 6, 1746; made Ensign of 9th Company May, 1756, 2d Lieutenant

He married (1) Susanna Randall.f and settled in Scituate.* where she 
died before June 24, 1758 J He took part in the Expedition against 
Fort Frontenac in 1758, and afterwards married (2) Martha Harring- 
ton, § who was born April 25, 1739, and who was a daughter of Amos 
and Mary (Bates)l Harrington, of Scituate. The family moved proba- 
bly in 1776. II to "Old Dutch Hoo;ick," in Rensselaer Co., N. Y., where 



* She may have been the daughter of Henry Bandall, whose wUl was made Feh. 20, 
1754, and provi d Sept. 13, 1T56. He mentions his wife Susanna, sons, Henry, John and 
Neheinlah, and daughters, Mary, Mercy and Susanna. If so It is not clear why her 
marriage name is not given in the will. 

t He bought l.-iO acres of land in Scituate, March 30, 1749; consideration, 450.C. His 
father, Chad, gave him TO acres, Oct. 6, 1731. He t)OUght an additional 15o acres 
March 2, 1752; consideration, 800£. 

t At this date he made a will which was never executed, " being by the ProTldence 
of God engaged in an expedition agaiusi his Majesiy's eL.emles," giving to his loving 
soil Chad all his estate, but In case he should die without issue and before he be- 
came of lawful age, then his estate was to go to his sisters, vtz., Juda Colegrove, 
Mary Haynes, and Rachel Colegrove. 

^ She had a brother, Ephraim Harrington. 

If Her sisters, Sarah and Fster Bates, married brothers, Richard and Elisha Har- 
rington, of no known relation to Amos Harrington.

Hooslck before the battle of 13ennington.

26. JUDA (3)— Chad (2), Arthur (1)— married Stephen Colegrove, 
whose mother's name was Taylor, and dwelt in Foster, R. I. 

The will of Stephen Colegrove was made July 30, 1811, and proved 
Dec. 12, 1811, mentions his wife, Juda, and all the children's names 
that appear below. Personal inventory, $419.51. Letters of adminis- 
tration were granted to Caleb Colegrove April 4, 1812, to administer 
upon the estate of Juda Colegrove. [Foster Rec] 

The will of Stephen Colegrove, Sr , was made May 7, 1786, and 
proved June 23, 1787, mentions sons, Stephen, Thomas, William, Ben- 
jamin, Isaac, Nathan, Jonathan, and John, who got the homestead in 
Coventry ; and daughters, Welthian Wightman, widow, Elizabeth Wil- 
liams. Mary Nichols, and Phebe Corwin. [Cuv. Rec] 

Stephen Colegrove and Phebe Millard married June 7, 1740. If this 
refers to Stephen, Sr., above, it must have been his second marriage, 
for his daughter Elizabeth married John Williams, Dec. 2, 1753. [Gov. 
Rec] Mary married Samuel Colegrove of Coventry, son of Francis, 
Oct. 18, 1779, and their son Fiancis was born Aug. 22, 1760. She mar- 
ried John Nichols, Dec. 12, 1773. Stephen's daughter Phebe married 
Phineas Corwin of Norwich, Conn., Nov. 4, 1779. The will of Stephen's 
son John was made Feb. 18, 1817, and proved April 7, 1817, mentions 
his wife, Nancy ; daughter, Hannah, wife of Reuben Blanchard ; daugh- 
ter, Amey Colegrove; grand-daughter, Nancy Phebe King, and sons, 
Archibald and Bela H. Colegrove. Cov. Rec] 

Stephen and Juda Colegrove, of Foster, both died in old age. Their 
children, of whom we have an account, are as follows : 

i Caleb (4) m......... "He had no children who lived to an 

adult years. 

ii Reuben (4) m and dwelt in Pownal, Vt. 

72. iii Major (4) b. March 15, 1759, m. in 1718 Susanna Taylor, and 
dwelt in Edmeston. 
iv Stephen (4) b. 1764, m Elizabeth Davis, dwelt in Edmeston, 
N. Y , and died March 5, 1855. 

V Elizabeth (4) m. Cole. 

vi Wellhan (4) m Edward Fenner, of Edward, dec'd, March 30, 

1786. 
vii Anna (4) m. Thomas West, of John, June 3, 1785, dwelt in 
Troy, N. Y. , or vicinity. 

viii Mary (4) m Sparks. 

ix Rachel (4) m Adams. 

The children of Jeremiah and Susanna Colegrove, whose births are 
lecorded in the Coventry records, were: 

i William, b. in Exeter, Sept, 17, 1760. 



ii Andrew, b. in Voluntown, Feb. 12, 1764. 
iii Samuel, b. July 26. 1767. 
iv Silas, b. June 3, 1769. 

Jeremiah was probably either a brother or half brother of Stephen, 
since Stephen, who died in 1855, in Edmeston, N. Y., called William, 
Samuel, and Silas his cousins. 

27. RACHEL (3)— Chad (2), Arthur (1)— married Thomas Cole- 
grove, of Coventry, R. I., Dec. 2, 1753, and certainly dwelt in that town 
until 1767. 

One Thomas Colegrove, of Warwick, was admitted freeman May 6, 
1746. 

Jeremiah and Susanna Colegrove dwelt in Coventry at this time. 
Their children were : William, b. in Exeter, Sept. 17, 1760 ; Andrew, 
b. in Voluntown, Feb. 12, 1764=5 Samuel, b. July 26, 1767; and Silaa, 
b. June 3, 1769. [Cov. Rec] 

The births of five of the children of Thomas and Rachel are found in 
the Coventry records, viz. : 

i Jesse (4) b. Jan. 26, 1757. 
ii John (4) b. March 12, 1759. 
iii Elizabeth (4) b. April 26, 1761, m. possibly Joshua Carr, 

April 20, 1794. 
iv Thomas (4) b. May 5, 1764. 
V Rachel (4) b. March 13, 1767. 
vi Ellis (4). 
Perhaps others. 

Elizabeth Colegrove, of Thomas, and Joshua Carr, of Caleb, were m. 
April 20, 1794. [W. G. Rec] 

28. PELEG (3)— Chad (2), Arthur (l)-was born Aug. 20, 1749, 
and married Nov. 26, 1772, Anna Cole, who was born March 23, 1755, 
and she was a daughter of Daniel and Anna (Young) Cole. Daniel 
Cole's will was made March 6, 1795, proved Oct. 2, 1795. witnessed by 
Asa Young, Abiather Young and Zadock Young, and mentions his wife 
Anne, son David, daughters, Sarah wii'e of Martin Luthar; Anne, wife 
of Peleg Avis worth, and Maitha. wife of John Hammon; and grand- 
daughter, Mary Aylsworlh. Peleg Aylsworth was executor. [Foster 
Rec] 

They lett Foster, R. I., in the Autumn of 1797, and settled in Edmes- 
ton, Otsego Co., N Y., bctwefn the V\ harton Creek and the Unadilla 
River, west of Edmeston Centre, where they dwelt until the year 1820, 
when they removed to the western part of the town of New Berlin, 
Chenango Co., where he died, Aug. 20, 1824, and she Jan. 11, 1844.

four sheep."

Fourth Generation. 



29. ROBERT (4)— Robert (3), Robert (2), Arthur (1)- was born 
Feb. 1, 1742, and married in West Greenwich, R. T., April 12, 1761, 
Rosanna Straight. 

His father gave him by deed, Nov. 28, 1762, ten acres of land in Exe- 
ter, R. I., but this lot was, perhaps, conveyed back to the fatiier Feb. 
14, 1764. 

The statement is made by Albina Ellsworth, of Atco, N. J., that he 
settled in Shaftsbury, Vt., and that he had two sons who lived in New- 
fane or Townsend, Windham Co., Vt. ; also that in 1838, when her 
father saw them, they were probably forty or fifty years of age. 

80. JOSEPH (4)— Robert (3), Robert (2), Arthur (1)— was born 
April 1, 1750, [Ex. Rec] and married Freelove Cowes. They settled 
in West Greenwich, where they evidently remained until after Nov. 12, 
1781. Deeds to land in West Greenwich were made by Joseph and 
Freelove as late as 1784-5, and nothing indicates that they left Rhode 
Island before these dates.* They emigrated to Hoosac, N. Y., where 
he died before Jan. 10, 1794, the date of letters of administration grant- 
ed to his widow. t 

The births of five children are recorded in West Greenwich: 

i Sarah (5) b. Jan. 16, 1771, m. [A. E.] Gilbert Watson; dw. 

Hoosac, probably. 
ii Cynthia (5) b. July 18, 1774, m. Nehemiah Parker, shoe- 
maker; dw. Hoosac. 



• William Oderklrk, of Fayette, Iowa, says that Nancy was three year? old when 
the family left Rhode Island, and thinks her mother's lamJy name was Hewitt.

ix Celinda (5), d. at Litchfield, N. Y., at the age of 15 years. 

81. ALICE (4)— Ephraim (3), Robert (2), Arthur (1)— the first wife 
of Moses Clark, was married Nov. 18, 1773. He was born Dec. 29, 
1751, the youngest of eight, the children of Thomas and Bridget (Bar- 
ber) Clark, who were married Dec. 17, 1732, ami who dwelt in Rich- 
mond, R. I. The names of the other children, in order, were: Ruth, 
William, Thomas, Elizabeth, Judeth, Lois, and Arnold. 

Alice and Moses Clark dwelt in Richmond, near the line of Exeter, 
having four sons and four daughters : 

i Mary (5) m. Moses, of Moses and Mary (Niles) Barber; dw. 
in Exeter; had fourteen children, all sons, and was buried 
on the Thos. Barber place. 
ii Moses (5) b. Oct. 1776, m. Abbey, of John and Abigail (Cot- 
trel) Reynolds ; dw. at Tug Hollow, Richmond, where he 
was buried. He d. June 4, 1863.

was buried in Knotty Oak Cem'y, near Washington, R. I.

called Wyoming. R. I. 
vii Solomon (5) m. (1) Huldah Abby, (2) Matilda Feech, and 

dw. at Yellew Foster, Ct. 
viii Ephraim (5) m. Nancy Hopkins, and " went to Ohio long 
ago." 

Alice (4) died three days after the birth of her youngest child, and is 
highly praised by her descendants. 

32. BENJAMIN (4)— Philip (3), Arthur (2), Arthur (1)— was born 
Feb. 5, 1734-5, and married M:iry Pinker, who had two brothers, James 
and John, but whose parentage is unknown. His father made him a 



71 

deed of gift to land in West Greenwich, R. I., Nov. 14, 1756, but his 
wife, Mary, died Jan. 3, 1759, [\V. G. Rec] and he sold this land March 
1, 1760. Since this deed sajs, "Benjamin Aylvvorth of West Green- 
wich," it is not likely he emigrated until after this time, though Rev. 
James P. Aylworth stated that his father, Abraham, was three years 
of age when Benjamin left Rhode Island. 

He married for his second wife— probably in Rhode Island— Molly 
Eldredge, who was somwhat advanced in life, and emigrated to Niska- 
yuna, N. Y., between Ti'oy and Schenectady. He left this place in 
company with his daughter's family and settled near the present site of 
Saltville, Washington Co., Va., before Oct, 17, 1790, the dates of his 
patents to land there, signed by Gov. Baverly Randolph. Here he died 
about 1810. His wife, Molly, did not accompany him to Virgina, but 
died in Milford, Otsego Co , N. Y. 

Benjamin and Mary (Parker) Aylworth had two children : 

87. 1 Elizabeth (5) b. Dec. 17, 1750, m. Benjamin Johnson. 

88. ii Abraham (5) b. Aug. 10, 1755, m. Catharine Crydenwise. 

Note. The descendants of Benjamin (4) have preserved the immi- 
grant's name— Aylworth —in their families to the present time. 

88. PHILIP (4)— Philip (3), Arthur (2), Arthur (1)— was born June 
7, 1737, and married June 14, 1762, Martha (6) — Joseph (5), Gi;es (4), 
Samuel (3), Giles (2), Anthony (1) — * who was born in West Green- 
wich, R. I., March 9, 1744-5, and who was a daughter of Joseph (5) 
and Hannah ( ) Slocum. 

They settled in Coventry, R. I., as appears from a deed of gift from 
his father Sept. 12, 1761, [Cov. Rec] and other transfers of real estate. 
He sold land in West Greenwich in 1765, 1776-7, and land in Coventry 
1766, 1769 and 1777, His signature to these deeds was autographic, 
and spelled "Aylworth." 

They emigrated to Milford, Otsego Co., N. Y., living some consider- 
able time at Pownal, Vt., before their final settlement in Milford, but 
accounts are so conflicting that the author has not been able to deter- 
mine to his satisfaction the dates of these chano:es. 

He died in Milford, of cancer, about 1809 — 10, and she in July, 1822, 
at the residence of her son Samuel, in the town of Butternuts, and not 
far from the village of South New Berlin, N. Y., in the cemetery of 
which latter place she lies buried. 

Their family of children consisted of five sons and three daughters, 
of whom we have an account, but the order of their names is not cer- 
tainly known :

34. JOHN (4)- Philip (3), Arthur (2), Arthur (1)— was born Nov. 
23, 1738, and was "3d son." His father gave him by deed a lot of land 
in Coventry, R. I., Feb. 12, 1761, which fact raises the presumption 
that he may have settled there in married life. His history has not yet 
been established fully to the satisfaction of the author. One theory is 
that he followed the sea. This theory is based upon a credible account 
that Sarah, wife of Job (3)— Philip (2), Arthur (1)— sister of John (4), 
had a brother who was a sea captain, and who visited her in Ernest- 
town during the recollection of her son Bowen, who remembered his 
sailor uncle distinctly, and particularly remembered his captain's uni- 
lorm, and said he spelled his name Ellsworth. This sailor could have 
been neither Benjamin, Philip, nor James, hence we conclude it was 
John. All of the ten children of Philip (3) are cai'efully mentioned in 
his will made Nov. 14, 1789, except John and Phebe. Bowen, son of 
Job, was nearly twelve years old at the date of the will. That John 
was not mentioned in the will may be accounted for on several sup- 
positions. 

Another theory is that this John (4) was accidentally drowned pre- 
vious to the birth of his only son : 

97. i John (5) m Lucy Dean. 

Tills theory is based upon the account of Mrs. Aliua Pierce, of North- 
ville, N. Y., who having her mother, Mrs. Avis Giflford, daughter of 
John (5), for authority, thinks that her great graud-rather''s name was 
John, and states that her grand-father, John (6), had an uncle, James, 
who had a son Philip. There is no doubt about the relation of this 
James, who was fully identified as James (4) — Philip (3) — . The 
Christian name of the mother of John (5) was Hannah. 

35. JAMES (4) -Philip (3), Arthur (2), Arthur (1)— was born April 
3, 1743, and married (1) Rhoda Jenks, of Rehoboth, Mass. Their home 



IB 

was near Bennington, Vt. He married (2) Lois Harrington,* and dwelt 
in Foster and Coventry, R. I. It is difficult to reconcile the statements 
made concerning his family. No record of the death of either has been 
discovered, but both probably lived to extreme old age.

George and Ruth (Cole) Parker. pW. G. Rec ] 

They settled in Coventry where they remained until after April IG, 
1792. In the year 1803 he settled in Luzerne Co., Pa., near Carbondale. 
where he died in 1834. His wife died in 1817.

Hartwick and Jacksonville. 

"Died in Hartwick, Otsego Co., N. Y., suddenly, Stukely Ellsworth, 
Esqr.. aged 67 years. Few men have lived more beloved, or died more 
lamented than Brother Ellsworth. He enjoyed in an eminent degree 
the confidence of all who knew him, which has been evinced on several 
occasions by placing him in the most important posts of honor and 
trust. He has held a seat in both branches of our State legislature 
with credit to himself and profit to his constituents. About twenty 
years prior to his death he embraced the faith of unlimited salvation, 
which up to the time of bis death was his stay and support." [From

45. RICHARD (4)— Anthony (3), John (2), Arthur (1)— was born 
Feb. 5, 1733-4, married Sept. 20, 1767, Lydia Straight, daughter of 
Thomas Straight, of West Greenwich, and dwelt in East Greenwich. 
[E. G. Rec] 

Whereas Richard Aylsworth, (with three others) preferred a petition 
to this assembly setting forth that on the 14th day of Feb. last past, they 
were captured on board the sloop Dolphin, in the service of this state, 
by the Portland Man of War, and carried to Antigua: from whence 
they obtained a passage to Nova Scotia, and from thence home to East 
Greenwich, which was attended with great cost and charges, which 
they have been obliged, since their return, to repay by their daily labor, 
and whereby their families are deprived of their necessary suppoit, and 
therefore besought this assembly to commeserate their distressed situa- 
tion and order their wages and expenses to be paid them. [R. I. Col. 
Rec, last Monday in Oct. 1776.] The total amount allowed was 55£— 
193 ~ 7d. 

Richard (4) was a member of Cul. Archibald Crary's Regt. R I. Sol- 
diers of the Revolution. •' The Regiments constituting a Brigade were 
raised for fifteen months ending March 16, 1778, then by Congress 
ordered to re-enlist for twelve months, and then for a third time pursu- 
ant to the same authoi-ity for twelve months ending March 16, 1780, 
making three years and three months before the biigade was disbanded. 
[Cowell, Spirit of 1776 in R. I.] In October, 1785, a committee re- 



79 

ported that there was due him on account of the depreciited money 
with which he had been paiil, a balance of 15£ -17s. — lid. 

Financial embarrassments resulle^l in the forced sale of his home in 
East Greenwich, June 26, 1793. 

" I, Lydia Aylsworth, wife of Richard Aylsworth hite of East Green- 
wich, now residing in Adams in the County of Berkshire, Mas>., for ihe 
love and good will that I bear to my brother in-law John Aylsworth of 
East Greenwich, do willingly give, yield up and surrender all my right 
of dower and power of thirds to a certain lot of land with a dwelling 
house thereon, being in East Greenwich, Newtown, so called, and is lot 
No. 179," etc. [Extract from deed, dated Sept. 23, 1793. Acknowl- 
edged before James Barker, Berkshire Co., Mass., Sept. 30, 1793, and 
witnessed by Susanna Aylsworth and Warner Aylsworth.] 

The East Greenwich town council appointed Richard Aylsworth to 
do military duty for fifteen days, in room of Benjamin Gould, Aug. 4, 
1777. 

Richard Aylsworth and Arthur Aylsworth were adjudged not able to 
equip themselves with a gun, etc., agreeable to law June 29, 1778, by 
the town council. 

At this writing it is impossible to give a satisfiictory account of the 
family of Richard and Lydia (Straight) Aylsworth, The following is 
oflfered, however: 

124. i Sarah (5) b. about 1768, m. James Levally. 

125. ii Thomas Madison (5) probably one of the youngest children, 

m. Mary Pike. 

iii Richard (5) may have dwelt in Chautangua Co., N. Y. His 
son Thomas learned the blacksmith trade in Newport, 
R. I., in the time of the cholera there, of a Mr. Simmons, 
another son came eight or ten years afterwards and 
worked in a tin shop, in same place. 

iv Hannah (5) m Greenman. She was a widow visit- 
ing relatives, from 1820 to 1828, with a child in his 
"teens." She had perhaps three children, one of whom 

Lawrence. She probably dwelt in Seneca Co. 

V John ? (5) visited Sarah Levally; was of a roving habit, and 
probably never married. 

vi Freelove ?(5) may have dwelt in a Southern State. She solic- 
ited a niece to live with her and become heir to her prop- 
erty. Hence it is inferred .«she died childless. 

Joseph P. Aylsworth, of Newport, thinks there was a daughter Bet- 
sey in this family who married Capps, but his sister, Mrs. Champ- 

lin, thinks not. He also states that Peter Holly was in some way re- 
lated to his fvither. This was probably by the marriage of Sarah 



80 

Straight to Holly. She was sister to Lydia, wife of Richard 

Aylsworth. He also believes, or thinks, there was another daughter by 
the name of Lydia belonged to this family. 

46. ANTHONY (4) Anthony (3), John (2), Arthur (1)— was reared 
perliaps by Samuel Warner, and married Molly Marks, of Warwick, 
Nov. 26, 1762, and settled in East Greenwich. 

Samuel Warner, of North Kingstown, made Anthony Aylsworth, of 
East Greenwich, cooper, a gift deed of " one acre of land on the west 
side of my farm in East Greenwich with a small dwelling house there- 
on." This deed was dated Feb. 10, 1775. 

They adhered to the religious faith of the Friends, and emigrated in 
1778* to Adams, Berkshire Co., Mass., where they both died, before it 
was customary with the friends to erect headstones. They were buried 
in the Friends Cemetery in Adams, where the remains of many of their 
descendants rests. 

Their children of whom we have an account, were two sons and one 
daughter: 

126. i William )5) b. 1763, m. (1) Phebe Tanner, dw. Edmeston, 

N. Y. 

127. ii Warner (5) m. Susanna Batty; dw. Adams, Muss. 

128. iii Mary (5) b. Aug. 19, 1770, m. David Aldrich; dw. Adams, 

Mass. 

47. JOHN (4)— Anthony (3), John (2), Arthur (1)— was born June 
14, 1748, and was I'eared in the family of Thomas Aldrich, a Quaker 
and prominent townsman, of East Greenwich, R. I. He married [Ex. 
Rec] March 4, 1771, Bethana Fry, daughter of James Fry, of Exeter. 
They were Quakers, and dwelt successively in East Greenwich, Crans- 
ton, and Foster, but dwelt in the first named town until after March 23, 
1805. Thomas Aldrich died before Oct. 28, 1795, and his wife Susanna 
(Spencer) befoi'e Dec. 29, 1798. She gave John (4) by will one water 
lot and two house lots in East Greenwich, but by codicil afterwards 
withdrew the gift of the water lot. She also gave Marah Aylsworth by 
will twenty Spanish milled dollars. 

He married June 13, 1792, his second wife, Asa Vaughn, who was 
born Feb. 9, 1759, and who was the third daughter of Benjamin and 
Catharine Vaughn, of East Greenwich. 

He bought land in Foster, March 22, 1805, where he died Jan. 28, 
1829, and on which farm he was buried. His second wife died proba- 
bly in 1849. 



• The date of their emigration rrom Rhode Island may not be correctly stated. The 
town Council of East Greenwich adjudg-ed Anthony Aylsworth not able to equip 
himself with a gun, etc., agreeable to law, Sept. 26, 1781. Perhaps this action r&- 
lorred lo Anthony (4)— Anthony (3),— etc. 



81 

Children of John (4) and Bethana {Fry). 

i Thomas (5.) b. June 7, 1771. It is supposed that he died at 
sea, but this is not known. The descendants of his 
brother John can give no account of hira. 
ii Mary (5) b. May 17, 1773. She remained unmarried, and 
died at Isaac Almy's, in Portsmouth, Sept. 9, 1824, mak- 
ing her will about a week previous to her decease. 
iii Martha (5) b. Sept. 8, 1780 ; unmarried, died in Providence 
Nov. 27, 1859. These sisters were Quakers, and were 
distinguished for their piety and good works. 

129. iv John (5) b. Aug. 12, 1783, m. Hannah Bacon; dw. Provi- 

dence, R. I.

48. JONATHAN (4) -Arthur (3), Jo!m (2), Arthur (1) - was born 
Feb. 4, 1729, proposed freeman in 1751, accepted freeman in 1752, mar- 
ried Sariili , dwelt in Exeter, R. I., and leaving Rhode Island 

dwelt in the town of Pawling, Dutcliess Co., N. Y., where ho died pre- 
vious to 1819, 

He bought of Joshua and Amey Rathbun May 5, 1755, three acres of 
land for £155, and of Robert and Freelove Hill July 16, 1756, fifty acres 
for £600, and from same persons March 5, 1757, fifty acres for £600, all 
in the town of Exeter. 

They appear to have had nine children who became of age, as the 
following abstract would indicate : 

Justice Leonard and Catharine Leonard, his wife, of Stephentown, 
Rensselaer Co., N. Y., to R. Weightman, Nor. 23, 18 9: Power 6f at- 
tourney to sell the undivided 1-9 part of all the real estate of Jonathan

49, JOSEPH (4)— Arthur (3), John (2), Arthur (1)— third son. was 
born April i9, 1735. But little is known of his personal history. It is 
probable that he was living with his father at the time the census of 
1774 was taken. His fatlicr died about Oct. 14, 1794, and Joseph con- 
tinued to occupy the West Greenwich homestead, and was living en- 
tirely alone at the time of his death. In the winter of 1816 he was 
frozen to death while going at night fiom the tavern, then on ^oose 
Neck Hill, to his home, which was not very far distant. Samuel Til- 
lin^hast administered upon his estale, the iaventory of his personal 
property, presented Feb. 2(J, 1816, amounting to $76.60. 

Of his marriage no particulars have been learned. His grand-son, 
Joseph, of Clarksville, Madison Co., N. Y., furnishes the following list 
ot his children's names, but if this gentleman's statement is correct, 
that his grand-father, Joseph, died in Dutchess Co., N. Y., of Small- 
pox, when his father, Joseph, was fourteen years of age. there is some 
mystery requiring light. We concludt, at present, that if Joseph, who 
lived with Arthur (3) in West Greenwich, was Arthur's son, then Jos- 
eph (6) of Clarksville is mistaken respecting his grand father's Chris- 
tian ijame. If the latter is mistaken, his grand-father was probably 
Jonathan (4) son of Arthur (3). In such a case the following list would 
be a partial list of the children of Jonathan (4) and Sarah, his wife, and 
compared with the list of the known children of Jonathan would give 
nine in number corresponding to the number of heirs at law indicated 
in the power of aitomey of Justice and Catharine Leonard, for which 
see the preceeding record. Should this view prevail the family history 
of Joseph (4) — Arthur (3)— etc., is enveloped in mystery. 

i Philip, eldest son, d in Illinois. 

ii Arthur, d. in Unadilla, N. Y. 

iii Anthony, d. in Ashtabula, O. 

iv Silas, d. in Dutchess Co., N. Y. 

V Joseph, m. Abigail Elliott. 

vi Amey. 

vii Sally. 

If Catharine Leonard belonged to this family there would still be one 
name wanting to make out the nine.

liO, iSILAS (4) -Atthiir (3), John (2), Arthur (1)— Ibiii-th sbh, Was 
born May 17, 1737, and married in West Greenwich, R. I., Ruth Wliit- 
ford, Sept. 28, 17G9. 

They left Rhode Island about this time and settled in Berkshire Co., 
Mass., probably in the town of Hancock, where he died in 1771, leaving 
an only daughter : 

134. i Eunice (5) m Murray, and dw. in Stephentown, 

Rensselear Co., N. Y., where she was a widow, Aug. 15, 
1817. 

Letters of administration were issued in Berkshire Co., Mass., Aug. 
13, 1771, to Ruth Aylsworth, widow of Silas Aylsworth, late of Jericho. 
The bond was signed by the widow, Clark Rogers, Caleb Gardner, and

not living at the time of her marriage. 

Jan. 1, 1753, John Aylsworth deeded a part of his homestead farm in 
East Greenwich to this grand-son, Christopher, as a gift, but it seems 
this couple were living in North Kingstown May 14, 1753, where it was 
ordered by the town council that his certificate be got from East Green- 
wich. They deeded their land in East Greenwich to Sylvester Sweet, 
Dec. 24, 1759, and his name is found in the North Kingstown town 
meeting list as late as June, 1767. They had: 

i Anno (.5) b. March 18, 17—, probably their eldest child, and 
others, probably, since in 1774 Phebe, probably the 
mother, was living in North Kingstown with two males 
under sixteen, and three females over sixteen, to con- 
stitute her family.

wife, Anne Spencer, daughter of Her Spencer, . 11th, 1795, [N.

The dates of the births of the children of Jeremiah and Phebe may 
not be entirely correct. They were all recorded in the North Kings- 
town records which were injured by fire. 

o4. WILLIAM (4) -Arthur (3), Philip (2), Arthur (1) - was bora 
Feb. 2, 1753, and married June 5, 1774, Catharine Havens, who waa 
born in Newport, R. I., Dec. 11, 1758, and who was a daughter of 
Rhodes Havens, of North Kingstown. Her father died previous to her 
marriage. 

In December, 1775, he removed from Rhode Island with his wife and 
a child, a month old, in a wagon with a few cooking utensils, to the 
town of Canaan, N. Y., where they spent their days. They were 
among the first settlers of the country, commenced life with very limit- 



fed liieans, efadured the toils and privitations incident to the settlement 
of a new country, and being frugal and perseveringly industrious, they, 
■with the blessing of God, acquired a competency, raised a numerous 
family who were permitted to " rise up and call them blest." 

Mr. Aylsworth, although a man loving retirement, was ever ready to 
help the distress, but made no ostentatious display of his deeds. He 
died Oct. 23, 1820, in his 68th year, and his wife July 6, 1822, in her 
64:th year. 

Their family of children consisted of five sons and eight daughters:

xiii Charles Dyer (5) b. April 8, 1805; d. April 24, 1806. 

Ten of the above family and nine who married into the family were 
hopefuly pious. [Reiristcr.] 

The record of this family is taken largely from the Register, the 
pamphlet previously referred to, and wliich was compiled by Sylvester 
Aylsworth of this family. 

65. DYER (4)— Arthur (3), Philip (2), Arthur (1)— married March 
3. 1773, Mary Spencer, who was a daugliter of John Spencer, of East

61. JOB (4) -Job (3), Philip (2), Arthur (1)— returned to the States 
a few years after his father settled in Ernesttown, and married, in the 
vicinity of Albany probably, Sarah Martin. They had his father's home- 
stead, ai:d b«fore the war of 1812 he went back to the States a second 
time, when his wife's brother, John Martin, and her two sisters and 
their husbands, Piter Smith and Samuel Joslyn, returned with him, but 
the locality the Martins came from is not certainly kr.o«n. She died 
in 1816, and he in 1850.

186. xi Elsey (5) m Davis; died Kingston, Ont, 1848. She 

iiad tluee children, Jane, John, and , all moved 

to the Slates. 

Job (6) eon of Bow en (6) and Sophia, says that Job (4) was born in 
the year 1763, and died in the Autumn of 18-17, at the age ol 84 years. 
The iamily of Job (3) Aylsworth is referred to in the town council min- 
utts ol North Kingbtown, R. 1., Jan. 14, 1762. If Job (4) was born in 
1763, Otho Nial (4) wbo was older than Job (4), was born perhaps in 
1761, and neither of these sons could then hitve been the children of 
Sarah Aylbworth, Job's second wife, whom he married in 1765. If the 
statement of Job (6) be correct, both Otho Nial (4) and Job (4) were 
the children of the first wife, Sarah (Clark). 

62. ELSEY (4)— Job (3). Philip (2), Arthur (1)— was born in Rhode 
Island Nov. 10, 1772, married In Kensselaer Co., N. Y., Dec. 8, 1787, 
John Bristol, who was born Oct. 21, 1759, in Ulster Co., N.Y., and who 
was a son of Abraham Biistol, a Baptist preacher. 

They lived a while, probably about five years, in Rensselaer Co,, but 
followed her parents to Canada, and settled in Ernesttown, near Bath, 
where he died Oct. 28, 1849, and she in 1854. A notice of her death 
published at the time states that she lived imtil her descendants num- 
bered 219, of whom 165 were then living, two of them belonging to the 
fifth generation ; that she had her senses to the last, and that she had 
been a consistent member of the Wesleyan Methodist Church for over 
sixty years. 

In a biographical notice of John Bristol, published at the time, we 
are told that he experienced religion in the twenty-seventh year of his 
age while under the ministry ol Rev. Freeborn Garrettson, and joined 
the M. E. Church in the United States, where ^he remained for seven 
years; that in the year 1793 he emigrated with his wife and family to 
Canada, where shortly after he was made {a class-leader, which ofiice 
he tilled lor forty years. His last illness was brief, being taken ill at 
five o'clock in the afternoon and dying about eleven at night.

1858, aged 84 years, 5 months, and 13 days.

64. ESTHER (4)-Job (3), Philip (2), Arthur (1)— was born 1776, 
and married Robert Pen-y, a Mothodisl preacher, ^on of Robert and 
Jemima ( \\ a^hburn) Perry. 

They were probably dwelling in Ernesttown when her early death in 
1803 resulted in the dispersion of the family. It has been found impos- 
sible to obtain satisfactory d<!tails of their fiimily history. 

The following, however, is offered respecting their children: 

i Elizabeth (5) m. Henry Ham; uw. in Frediicktburgh, Ilara- 
burg, Ont. 

ii Robert (5) ra. Polly Sharp; dw. on Moira Island, kept a pub- 
lic house, also said to have lived near Madoc, County of 
Hastings. 

iii Anna (5) was reared by her uncle Bowen Aylsworth, m. John 
Werrico, a daughter m. George Darley and dw. perhaps 
near Collitigwood, Ont. 

iv Nial (5) called the World's Preacher, was reared by his uncle 
Olho Nial; dw. as is su^jposed at least, in southern Wis- 
consin or in the State of illinois. 
V James (5) m. Elizabeth Ward, and went to the United States 
early in life. 

vi Esther (5) M. Davis Ilawley, whose family is supposed to live 
near Cloyne P.O., Ont. 

(io. BOWEN (4)— Job (3), Philip (2), Arthur (1)— was born Feb. 
27, 1778, probably in the town of Schodtick, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., and 
was ten years of age when his parents settled in Canada. He married 
Nov. 21, 1797, Hannah Perry, who was born Aug. 3, 1781, and who Avas 
u daugliter of Robert and .Jtmiima (Washburn) Perry, of Ernesttown, 
Ont. They settled immediately on a farm three miles north of Bath, 
where lliL'y dvv'clt together sixty-six years, his death occurring upon 
the sixty-sixth anniversary of their wedding day, Nov. 21, 1863. She 
died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs Mary Lucas, in Camden. 

He was a man of somewhat abrupt address, wasting few words in 
empty compliments, but of great equanimity of character, contented, 
prudent, and unostentatious, hewing square to the line of settled con- 
victions. His religious character was, in a measure no doubt, moulded 
and stayed by the piety of his excellent Avife. Witbin the circle of hia 
acquaintance he was referred to as a model of industry, economy, and 
perseverence. About four years previous to his death a part of one of 
his feet was carried away by gangrene, and the part, contrary to expect- 
ation, healed and left him compriratively well again. An extended 
obituary notice appeared in the " Christian Guardian" of Toronto. Nov. 
30, 1864, to the establishment of which paper he contributed. He also 



aided in the erection of Victoria College, and afterwards contributed to 
its endow. iient, and is spoken of as one of the earliest and foremost sup- 
porters of the temperance movement in Canada. 

Bowrn and Hannah commenced housekeeping May 1, 1798, he being 
twenty, and she sixteen years of age. Her father, who entertained 
views somewhat aristocratic, was displeased with their marriage, and 
withheld from them for a time a father's sympathy, which, however, 
found expression a few years later in an endeavor to present her with 
an outfit of furniture, which he, without previous warning, placed at 
her door. She declined to receive the gift, but no doubt esteemed the 
generous overture as an indication of his parental approval, and ac- 
cepted cheerfully her proper place in his affections. 

Robert Perry was born in Rehoboth, Mass., in 1751, and was married 
to Jemima Washburn, of Attleboro, in March, 1772, and settled in Rut 
land, Vt., then a new country, in September of the same year. He had 
two brothers, David and Peter, who adhered to the Revolutionary cause 
while Robert clung to Britain, and was among the New England Roy- 
alists. After a reverse in the British cause between the years 1777 — 79, 
his family and others were driven into Lower Canada, where Hannah 
and two of her brothers, Daniel and David, were born. Robert PeiTy 
and family, with other New England Loyalists, removed, or were re- 
moved by the military authorities, from Lower Canada to the Bay of 
Quinte country about the year 1785-6, when Hannah was four or five 
years old. Often has she in after years related the jsarticulars of that 
trying period, and of later periods in the settlement of this part of the 
Province, with clearness and precision. For eighty years she and her 
husband, her children and relatives, have been identified with the dom- 
estic, social, civil, political, and religious progress of this part of Can- 
ada. Their record would make up much of its history. * * * She 
remembered the voyage np the Bay of Quinte in the small French boats 
and its incidents, such as the fine sight of the tents pitched upon the 
shore (near the place where Bath was afterwards built) by a fatigue 
party that had preceded the main body of the settlers ; the firing of 
musketry by the shore party to attract attention, the firing of the boat 
party in reply ; the hearty cheers of both when they neared the shore, 
and the preparation made for their reception. * * * Hannah took 
her place, according to hor age. at the family christening shortly after 
the settlement in Ernesttown, where her father allowed the Rev. J. 
Langhorn to baptize all his children. * * * They were glad when 
a man from the United States, by the name of McCarthy, a lay preacher 
of the school of Whitfield, came among them. Robert Perry at once 
opened his house to him. Hannah was present when he was arrested, 
as stated in Playter's History of Methodism in Canada, in her father's 
house on the Sabbath day while preaching, by an armed man under the 
authority of certain military dignitaries, who did not intend that dis- 



u 

Bent should take I'Oot in Canadian soil. But how Wofadrously, by the 
pr(>valence of Pie>byterianism and Methodism in Canada has the pre- 
sentment to which Mr. Perry gave utterance when he saw Mr. McCar- 
tliy put into a small boat and shoved off from the shore in charge of 
some soldiers alter which he used to call " a mock trial,'''' been fulfilled, 
though Mr. McCarthy's doom may never be known until the last day. 
" You may, ' said he, "banish, or drown, or burn McCarthy, but God 
will raise up a hundred from his ashes." * * * Hannah, then about 
eleven years of age, was converted and joined the first class formed 
by Dunham in the neighborhood, and probably the f^econd or third in 
the Province, as it was daring the first year of his superintendency. 
She continued a member until her death, viz., about seventy-four ye^irs. 
Her oldest brother, Robert Perry, Ji , of those days, became a traveling 
preacher of great power in the M. E. Church, and two of her brothers, 
David and Daniel, local preachers. Another brother, the late Peter 
Perry, of Whitby, was associated with M. S. Bidwell, now of New 
York, as the celebrated representatives of Lennox and Addington from 
1824 to 1836, whilst her only other brother, the Hon. E. Perry, of Co- 
burg, is now a member of the Legislative Council. * * * Her father, 
Robert Perry, when he died in 1837 left about 300 descendants. Hers 
must approach 250 in number. She leaves thirteen children, one hun- 
dred and three grand-children living, besides the great grand-children, 
of whom there are ninety, if not more. * * * 

When Lorenzo Dow visited Canada for the last time, about thirty-six 
or thirty-seven years ago, he preached three times in the neighborhood 
and was entertained by her together with about sixty others who staid 
over night on the premises to here him preach on the second day, * * 
Among her children one is a traveling minister among us, and quite 
extensively known, three are local preachers, others stewards, etc., 
whilst of her graud-children two are traveling ministers in another 
Methodist body in the Province. * * ♦ Her father literally died of 
old age. She reached her eighty-fifih year. She was buried at the 
cemetery at Violet Church. [Extracts from a biographical notice of 
Hannah Aylsworth in the VVesleyan Daily Recorder, May 28, 1869.]

The following extract from a letter is inserted as a tribute to the 
memory of this estimable woman, and serves at the same time to iUus- 
trate filial devotion, refined sentiment, and scholarly taste of the writer 
of the letter, her youngest son : 

Burlington, N. Y., Monday, 5 o'clock, P. M. 

Sept. 10th, 1855. 
Mt Dear Homer — 

The solemn task devolves upon me of informing you that your grand 
mother is no moi'e. She died yesterday at precisely 20 minutes past 11 
o clock in the forenoon. I have just returned Irom the funeral, which 
was held at the brick school-house. The discourse was preached by 
Rev'd Mr Shank, of Hartwick, from Heb. 4:9, and now all that was 
earthly of that feeble tenement is sleeping well in the city of the dead. I 
was in almost constant attendance at her bedside for about fifteen hours 
before her death, and I must say, that seat was to me the seat of wis- 
dom. It was my lot, it was my choice. Thought, busy thought! Re- 
flections of the past mingled with the scene before me. On a dark but 
cloudless night, the 12th of June, 1769, her histoiy began. Then on- 
ward was the fair and sprightly girl, the blooming bride, the pioneer to 
a distant wilderness, the pious mother, the frugal and diligent house- 
wife, the invaluable neighbor, blessed by the sick and the poor. Then 
the aged matron who had outlived her own generation, and through 
the mntalions of time became a stranger in her own neighborhood. In 
her downward progress her strength failed, then her memoiy, then her 
reason, and finally her speech. Her last few years, as you are well 
aware, were years of helplessness and dependence, as also years of pain. 
Knowing that ht-r time had come I took my station by her side on Sat- 
urday evening about 8 o clock to moisten her parched lips and minister 
to her relief as far as human agency allows. At 4 o'clock in the morn- 
ing I called the family. She sank away slowly as the sun rose higher 
and higher, the hard breathing, the hollow moan, the heaving bosom, 
and the pallid features, all admonishing us that the soul had but a brief 
lodgment in its earthly tenement, then to close the hist .'-cene, a gasp 
and the gulf was passed which separates this world of trouble from the 
land of I'est. Thei'e was the heart to whose pulsations I owe my vital 
breath ; there was the hand that labored for my comfort ; and there was 



ioo 

the eye that watched over my helplf ss infancy, but that heart, that hand, 
that eye, h;ive been touched by the icy ficger and was now committed 
to ihe unrevealing silence that is only broken by the last trumpet. 
Then, farewell, dear mother, thy memory well deserves the tribute of 
tears. O, how insignificant is all the patient toil by which I have sought 
to sooth thy declining years! * * *

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. 

Philip Aylsworth was born in Foster, R. I., and reared in Edmeston, 
N. Y., where his parents dwelt at that period, and having remarkable 
natural gifts early acquired an education and engaged in teaching pnb- 
lic schools from 1816 to 1822 in Luzerne Co., Pa., Seneca Co , K. Y., 
and in his own county, where he was school superintendent. In the 
spring of 1822 he went to thf State of Illinois, and on the 11th day of 
May of that year established a ferry at the present site of Beardstown, 
on the Illinois River, and in 1827 surveyed and platted that city, nam- 
ing it for his intimate friend, the proprietor of the land, Thomas Beard. 
He and his wife settled on the present site of Meredosia, on the same 
river, July 11, 1828, where he established a ferry, and immediately 
spent eight days alone with a horse and a hatchet blazing a trail througii 
the timber and trailing a path through the tall prairie grass, between 
his ferry and the bluffs at Qnincy, then little else than a mere landing- 
The railroad between these two points traverses this old trail, varying 
from it but slightly at a few points. He established his ferry just below 
the outlet of that lake called by the French traders who sometimes 
stopped there at that time Mere d'Sier. A cross with his name inscrib- 
ed upon it still marked the grave of Osier, a trader who had been buried 
within a few rods of the place where he first landed his few effects and 
began his improvements. This beautiful city owes its euphonious 
14 



106 

name to his happy thought of anglicizing the above phrase for the name 
of the place of his own founding.* 

He remained at Moredosia seven years sm-veying land for the gov- 
ernment and collecting taxes ; served in the Black Hawk War as major; 
dwelt two years in Sacymore County, and in 1837 built the Babylon 
Mills on Spoon River, where he afterwards resided, and after which 
time he was identified with the interests of Fulton County. 

Another item is worthy of mention here. To avoid the hardships 
settlers were then frequently subjected to by having their lands bought 
from under them by speculators, Mr. Aylsworth drafted a bill for Con- 
gress to act upon, giving settlers the prior right of purchase. This 
draft he gave into the hands of Joseph Duncan, afterwards Governor of 
the State, then the only representative in Congress from Illinois. Mr. 
Duncan failed to get any action upon ic in 1829, but in 1830, owing 
largely no doubt to Mr. Ay Is worth's earnest correspondence in the 
meantime with eastern representatives, Congress passed the bill with 
but slight alteration of the original draft — the first pre-emi^tion law ever 
passed by Congress. 

To the latest years of his life he continued in the enjoyment of his 
faculties in a remarkable degree, reading the finest print without the 
use of glasses, which he never used, and writing the smooth and deli- 
cate hand of his earlier yfears. His memory continued good to the last. 
He died at the age of 87 years, 8 months, and 2 days, and was buried 
on the heights of the bluifs near Babylon Mills, where several members 
of his family lie buried. 



• This statement, which Is from Mr, Aylsworth personally, of course sets aside a 
published derivation of the name "osier," a willow. It wouid he dlfflcult, no doubt, 
to persuade even a French trader to believe that the lake is made of "osier," and if 
tha lake was bordered with willows, which in fact was not the case, the most incon- 
siderate Frenchman would have paid more regard to his plurals.

Joseph Ellsworth, in the spring of 1803, moved from Litchfield, N. 
y., into northern Vermont, ami settled in the town of Fletcher, on land 
owned by Aaron Haynes, who at that time owned large tracts of land 
in what is now known as the counties of Franklin, Chitenden and La- 
moile. At this time the country was quite new, there being but few 
families in town. For a few years they suffered the privitations inci- 
dent upon first settlers, and at the time known as the "cold season," it 
being impossible to raise grain, his courage failed and was on the point 
of moving his family back to New York, when his wife's father (Aaron 
Haynes) came up and thiukincr it better fur him to i-aise his family in a 
new country fHrnished provisions and a team which helped them to a 
start. After this they prospered and soon had the rich lands converted 
into smooth, productive fields, all enclosed with the old-time stone wall 
which is still standing as a memorial of the strength and persevering 
energy of the first settlers. 

For a few years the neares^t market was nearly a hundred miles ofi", 
and all the pork and grain to spare were taken that distance with a 
team to be exchanged for needful supplies for the family. A large farm 
house was built and, for those times, well furnished, whose doors were 
ever opened to rich or poor alike, who ever found a welcome beneath 
its hospitable roof. 

In 1814, while at woik with his boys in the hay field, news came of 
the advance of the British upon Plattsburg. Only stopping long enough 
for a slight change of clothing, he set out on foot for the scene of action, 
where he met with the misfortune of a broken limb, but succeeded in 
capturing a British gun, which still remains in the family. 

His sons and daughters, .all except the youngest, settled within a few 
miles and built up good homes and fortunes for themselves. The 
youngest. Prosper, went back near the old home his father left, and 
ihere became a successful farnier. 

Of this branch of the family a few have represented their town in the 
le2:islatm'e, and some nave filled the office of selectmen of the town in 
which they lived, but as a people have rather avoided office. It is not 
known that any member of the different families have ever been indict- 
ed for any crime, or been the recipient of public charity.

DIED. In this city, on Wednesday morning last, aftv.r a short ill- 
nes.s, Mr. S. R. Aylsworth, aged about GS. 

Thus one by one the aged pass 

That bom-ne whence none return. 
And one by one, we're called, alas, 

Departed friends to mourn. 

We mourn ; because the flesh is weak, 

Though death to them is gain ; 
This fact does consolation speak 

To mourners bowed in pain. 

How different when a good man dies 

Feel members left behind, 
Than when death's well aimed arrow flies 

And fells the scoffer blind. 

To one tne resurrection morn 

To friends behind looks bright, 
And points to that celestial dawn 

Where they'll again unite. 

With brightened pinion foith looks up 

Xow Father Aylsworth's gone ; 
We know that Jesus held deatli's cup, 

Nor suffered he alone. 

IIow happy are our thoughts of hini^ 

Though dead he speaketh yet ; 
While sorrow's cupo'erflows tlie brira, 

Bright glimpses oft we get — 

Briglit glimpses of that " bettei- land " 

Where saints of God find rest. 
And joyous, round the throne they stand, 

Among the Angels blest.

Fair Haven, Mass., and sailing from New Bedford, April, 1843, on a 
whaling voyage made the circuit of the globe, returning in 1846. On 
the ship J. Peterson he was wrecked on the north beach at Vera Cruz 
in a "norther," and was there during the siege of that city. On the 
bark Undine for the coast of California he was stranded in the Straits 
of Magellan in 1848, and from Valpariso was sent to San Francisc;o liy 
the American Consul with goods for the government, and in the fall of 
the same year shipped on the Huntress as second officer from San Fran- 
cisco to Valpariso and return. In the spring of 1849 he went into the 
northern gold mines, but returned home in 1851, via Lake Nicaragua, 
and engaged in the malleable iron business at Worcester, IMass., where 
after two years his establishment was burned out with no insurance, 
after which time he was engaged in mercantile enterprises at Wick- 
ford, R. I.

N. Y., where he died Aug. 23, 1826, and she Dec. 30, 1858. 

The following sketch is from the pen of Lura F. Aylsworth : 

The advent of William, son of William and Catharine, after five 
daughters had blessed their household, was a notable event. The father 
could hardly believe the messenger who announced " to you a son Ik 
born." Nature was bountiful in her gifts to him, a frank and genial 
spirit shone out from his hand.some face, much of fomily pride centered 
in him, and his friends wi.shed him a better lot in life than their farm 
could afford.

While yet a young man he joined a party of surveyors going down 
the Hudson, and passing through Patterson, Dutchess Co., N. Y., he 
chanced to meet Nancy Weed, a fair young lady, whom, after a short 
acquaintance, he married. His people received her as a daughter and 
sister, and always loved the little lady of artistic tastes and graceful 
ways. His father generously started him in trade in Hudson, but the 
war of 1812 brought disaster to the young merchant. The father with 
his son and his family started out west in a lumber wagon to seek a 
new and more reliable field of work, and in April, 1816, they reached 
Clarence, N. Y. A farm of a hundred acres was bought, situated in 
Clarence on the Holland purchase, twenty miles east of Buffalo on the 
Salt Road, and three miles north of the State Road running from Albany 
to Buffalo. A small clearing and a log house were the entire improve- 
ments, and till land was cleared and a crop raised provisions must come 
from Caladonia, thirty-two miles east. The milling was done at Nia- 
gara Falls, twenty-seven miles west. 

He found the settlement poor and discouraged but his enthusiasm, 
unfailing good nature and hope infused a new spirit into the almost dis- 
heartened company of pioneers. He was one of the first to form a 
school district and establish a school; was an elder in the first Presby- 
terian Church of Clarence, and a generous and honored member of the 
society. Being prospered in all he undertook he soon built a house and 
barn and bouoht one hundred and fifty acres of land adjoining his farm. 
To complete some payments he and his sons drew wheat to Rochester, 
seventy miles east, and sold it for three shillings [37 1-2 cents] per 
bushel. He put up a saw mill and a grist-mill on a stream of water 
running through his land. His brother Asahel spent some months with 
him, and helped set out an apple orchard close by the house on the south 
■west so that when the country became cleared the trees would break 
the force of the winds from Liike Erie. Children of the fourth genera- 
tion gather its fruits of unknown names save such as the family have 
given them. 

A man of perfect health he never doubted his powers of endurance, 
and one day in August returning from Lockport he walked a few miles 
through a low, miilarious swamp, taking off his coat he soon became 
chilled and was striok< n down with chill fever. He suffered but a few 
days, no medical skill then at hand being able to relieve him. Often 
delirious he gave or<lers to his man, and in his Incid intervals would not 
allow them to be discharged. In a chill on the afternoon of Aug. 23, 
1826. in the fluh of his strenoth and prime of life, he died. He left a 
broken home, and children who all th« ir life long have missed their 
father. They buried him in the then only public grounds, a mile and a 
half northeast of the homestead. One of his sons made a journey to 
Stockbridge, Mass., and brought home a stone to mark his grave. It 



iif 

Was the first set in the grounds. From the east and from the virest tli^ 
Aylsworths of Clarence have brou;4ht back their dead to rest in this 
yard. 

From the loss of her husband the mother never fully recovered. After 
the first shock of grief was over her life was one of marked submission. 
Neither apathetic nor rebellious, a!l her views of life were "God wills 
it." She never lacked the loving devotion of her children. Her sons 
were right loyal to their mother. She was th.-ir first care. For years 
her lamp was trimmed and burning, and when suddenly the cry was 
heard at midnight, "Behold, th.^ brid<'groom cometh!" she rose up 
hastily and blessing her children, when out of ihis life. On New Year's 
day, 859, two sons with their f^imilies stood around her open gi-ave 
comforting their hearts with thoughts of the hippy reunion of father 
and mother, and the belief that the two would take part in the first res- 
urrection.

Charlotte Brown, of Southbury, Conn., who died Oct. 20,1818; mar- 
ried (2) Jan. 1, 1822, Polly, born Nov. 19, 1799, daughter of Abel and 
Mary (Hawley) De Forest, of Edmeston, N. Y., moved to Utica, N. Y., 
July, 1828, where he died suddenly of heart disease, Feb. 18, 1857, 
while answering the call of his door-bell. He was an elder of the First 
Presbyterian Church of Utica, and thoroughly interested in every good 



fcilise , prudent in his imdei-takings and frllgal In ins expenditures, blit 
generous in his charities. His interest in the family history is the sub- 
ject of a special chapter devoted to his Aylsworth Register. [See 
the tirst pages of this work, where he is given credit for the first history 
of this iamily.] She died in Binghampton, N. Y., Sept. 7, 187G, and 
was burled in Forest Hill Cemetery, Utica. 

Children of Sylvester and Polly.

ii Mary (6) b. April «, 1825, unmarried, died Sept. 28, 1847, at 
Utica. 

iii William Henry (6) b. Sept. 20, 1829. died June 19, 1832. 

iv Charles (6) b. July 25, 1832, became a partner with his fatlier 
in the hardware business in Utica when twenty-one 
years of age, which business was closed in 1846. After 
his father's death he was clerk in New York city until 
1862, when he enlisted in the Fifth Regiment of N. Y. 
Cavalry, Col. De Forest, and after his death, Col. Wynd- 
ham, commanding. Ho refused a lieutenancy, prefer- 
ring his position as clerk to his colonel to the more ac- 
tive and fatiguing duties of the campaign. His health 
was always delicate, and a considerable portion oi his 
army life was spent in the hospital. After the close of 
the war he returned to the city of New York, but in 
December, 1870, he went to Bingham ton, N. Y., evi- 
dently sinking with consumption, but with the change 
of air and scenery, together with the devoted nursing of 
his estimable mother and her relatives, his life did not 
go out until Dec. 15, 1875. At the time of his death his 
mother was gradually sinking with the same disease, 
and died the following September, being accompanied 
to their last resting place by his devoted aunt, Miss Car- 
oline De Forest, who, after the death of his mother — her 
sister— purchased a lot in Forest Hill Cemetery, Utica, 
and accomplished the melancholy task of removing the 
remains of the father and the six children from the old 
cemetery, who now lie buried with the mother in Forest 
Hill. Miss Caroline De Forest regarded the measure as 
a sad duty, on account of the wretched condition of the 
old cemetery. 

V James De Forest (6) b. Nov. 1, 1835, died May 21, 1839. 

vi Cornelia (6) b. June 29, 1838, died April 3, 1839. 

With the death of Cha.rles Aylsworth, the family of Sylvester be- 
came extinct.

account of John's long ab.seuce during the Revolutionary War; news being prevalent 

that John was dead. She therefore married (2) Porter, by whom she had two 

children, viz.: Anna, and a son, who died young. Anna married Daniel Rust, who 
Wis Lorenzo Dow'3 mother's brother. At the close of the war John Fordj^ce returned 
and In a conftT.'nce with Porter, mutually agi-eed to let Elizabeth choose whkh hus- 
band she would livo with, whereupon she chose John Fordyce " 

The above account of the Fordyces Is from a memorandum In pencil In the hand ol

REV. ISAAC STONE. 

For a more extended biography of the Rev. Isaac Stone tlian comes 
within the scope of this work the reader is referred to the Northern 
Christian Advocate, of Oct. 2, 1850, the Minutes of Black River Confer- 
ence, and the Blaok River Conference Memorial, by Rev. P. D. Gorrie, 
New York, 1852. 

Isaac Stone was born in Hoosii k, N. Y., ^larch 28, 1797, his parents 
being members of the Bapti-t Churcli, and his mother, Susanna, daugh- 
ter of Thomas Aylsworth, a deeply pious woman, of whom he often 
spoke in terms of great affection, :iud at whose grave a few years pre- 
vious to his death he wrote 



And after many rolling years have passsed. 
And my own head is s^winkled o'er with gray, 

I stand beside thy humble grave at last, 
And here the tribute of my tears I pay. 

And if to look upon thy gi-ave and weep 
Was so to be desired and sought so far. 

Then what will be the bliss in heaven I'll reap. 
To see thee, saint, in Jesus' crown a star! 

The family consisting of the parents and four children moved to Lower 
Canada when he was about eight years of age, from which Province he 
returned to Hoosick at the age of sixteen, during the war of 1812, 
learned the tivade of a blacksmith, and at about the close of his appren- 
ticeship so injured himself in endeavoring to shoe a fractious horse as to 
i:)ermanently undermine his promising vigorous physical constitution. 
He left Hoosick in 1816 in ill health following hemorrhage from the lungs 
and pneumonia, and found in the family of his uncle, Elhanan Ayls- 
worth, of Bttrlington, Otsego Co., N. Y , the hospitality, sympathy and 
care so uniformly manifested by that family, and of which he stood so 
much in need. They cared for him as for an own son, and his health 
improving, he taught school more or less until in 1820 he married Mary 
(Polly) Aylsworth, daughter of his hospitable uncle. 

Soon after his arrival in Burlington he embraced religion, and united 
with the Methodist Episcopal Church, and in the year 1821 the Rev. 
Charles Giles, observing his intelligent and moving testimony on a love

already revealed to him. He was, therefore, in this year Sent iDy this 
presiding elder to fill a vacanoy on what was then the Marcellus circuit 
in Onondaga Co., N. Y., and was admitted into the Genesee Annual 
Conference in 1822. He filled successively the following circuits and 
stations, to wit: Herkimer, Westmoreland, Canajoharie, Otsego, Black 
River, Stockbridge, (from which he was transferred to Bleecker Street 
Church, Utica), Westmoreland, Rome, Verona, and Lowville. During 
his second incumbency on the Westmoreland circuit his first wife died, 
and while at Rome station he married his second wife, Miss Mercy 
Chittenden Hand, of Verona, N. Y. 

At the first session of the Black River Conference in 1836, having 
fiillen within its bounds when separated from Oneida, he was appointed 
f)residing elder and sent in charge of the Oswego District for four years, 
near the close of which term he was bereft, within the space of three 
weeks, of two lovely and promising children, Mercy Hand Stone, aged 
5 years and two months, and George Leverett Stone, aged 3 years and 
7 months, the children of his second wife, of whom he was also bereft 
two years later. 

His duties as presiding elder were discharged with great acceptability 
and usefulness, but, owing to the condition of his health, he preferred a 
single charge to a district, and from 18 10 to 1847 he was stationed suc- 
cessively at Fulton, Weedsport, Potsdam, and Watertown, stations com- 
manding the best talent in the conference. While stationed at Weeds- 
port he married his third wife, Miss Rachel Clow, who survived his 
death many years. 

At the conference of 1847 he was elected delegate to the General Con- 
ference of 1848, and also made presiding elder again, and put in charge 
of the Adams District, after which his health failed so rapidly that he 
was compelled to resign oversight of the district to the hands of others, 
and to retire from the regular and active work altogether. He took a 
superannuated relation in 1848. He, however, attended the session of 
the General Conference at Pittsburg, to which he was a delegate from 
his conference, but was obliged to set out on his homeward journey be- 
fore the close of the session. His devoted wife was his companion on 
this journey. 

For two years after he gave up his regular pastoral work he resided 
in Watertown, but thinking that a little manual labor in the open air 
might benefit his health he bought a small farm near the village of Jor- 
dan, Onondaga Co., N. Y., to which he removed, and on which he dwelt 
the remainder of his life. He preached occasionally, and probably 
oftener than prudence would dictate. He attended the conference ses- 
sion at Rome in 1850, and, in response to the passing of his character, 
addressed the conference. Speaking of his address, one of the members 
said : " It was one of the most thrilling ever heard on the conference 
floor. Such primitive itinerant zeal, such burning love, such ripenesg 



m 

for his eternal rewiird as glowed on his pale coilfatehahce, alid thunder-' 
ed forth in sepulchral tones from his half-consumed lungs, enforced by 
tears and gestures peculiar to himself, were enough to move heaven and 
earth. All hearts before him were melted, and the response was one 
general outburst of feeling. And though, like a true soldier, he panted 
for the strife of the field, yet to many hearts his speech was like that of 
Paul at Miletus, and we feai-ed, alas, but too truly ! that we 'should see 
his face no moi'e'." [Rev. E. Arnold, in B. R. Conf. Mem.] 

He preached his last sermon in the town of Lysander, a few miles 
from his home, and died Sept. 10, 1850, in the fifty-third year of his 
age and the twenty-ninth of his itinerant ministry, having filled some 
of the most important stations within the bounds of the Black River 
Conference. He was buried at Jacksonville, eight miles north of his 
home, beside his second wife and their two children. Ilis first wife 
was buried at Verona, Oneida Co., N. Y. 

He was a bright and shining light.

227. PERRY (5)— Elhanan (4), Thomas (3), Cliad (2), Arthur (1) 
— was a farmer, boi'n Nov. 21, 1812, married March 21, 1836, Luna 
Norton, born in Warren, Herkimer Co., N. Y., Sept. 12, 1810, daughter 
of James and Hannah (Stewart) DeLong, of Watertown, N. Y., and 
after a bhort residence in Rome, N. Y., dwelt in the Butternut Creek 
Valley, in the town of Burlington, Otsego Co., N. Y., on his father's 
homestead, but he spent about ten years in teaching public schools in 
Otsego Co., N. Y. Returning from the State of Illinois he met an acci- 
dental death at Thorald, Out., Dec. 9, 1858, in the language of the cor- 
oner's record, " by falling or walking oflf fi'om the cars while in rapid 
motion." Altliough but recently recovered from a sickness re(juiring 
the attention of his physician for some time, and still quite weak, no 
fear was apprehended for his safety by his friends when he started on 
his homeward journey alone. Leaving Williamsville Station, Sacy- 
amon Co., 111., his diary states that the Chicago & Alton Railroad train, 
on which he was traveling, was detained ten hours by a disabled freight 
train, and other detentions evidently occurred during the progi'ess of his 
journey. The last entry in his diary was made at nine o'clock in tiie 
morning of Dec. 9lh, after leaving Windsor, Ont. It is probable that 
as evening came on he fell asleep, and that the baggage agent aroused 
him about nine o'clock, as would appear from his testimony, and ex- 
changed checks. In his weakened and wearied condition, perhaji.s not 
fully aroused to consciousness, or perhaps in a somnambulistic state, he 
collected his wraps, umbrella and valise, and probably steppinl oflf the 
train, under the mental apprehension that it was time to change cars, 
as he had just changed checks for Utica. He was discovered at 9.15 
P. M., by a woman stumbling over his body in her path as she returned 
home from a near neighbors. This occurred between Thorald and Sus- 
pension Bridge, and not far from the former place. His eldest son, then 



m 

ih illinois, as soon as apprised of the accident, took charge of his re- 
mains, which were placed in the Brick School-House Cemetery, not far 
fVdrn his home in Burlington, N. Y., where four generations of the 
f:iinily lie buried.

203. REV. d'AMES PARKER (6)— Abraham (5), Benjamin (4), 
Philip (3), Arthur (2), Arthur (1) - was born in the town of Half Moon. 
Saratoga Co., N. Y., Sept. 10, 1783, and was a soldier in the war of 
1812. His limited early advantages were so improved that he became 
a successful teacher of schools, and is said to have taught for twenty- 
two winters. He married Feb. 3, 1803, Lucy Barnes, born June 7, 
1782, daughter of Comfort and Hannah (Conway) Barnes, of Saratoga 
Co., N. Y. At the age of seventeen he was converted and united with 
the M. E. Church, and in 1815, was licensed as a local preacher, in 
which relation he served the church acceptably until 1822, when he was 
received on trial in the traveling connection in the Genesee Conference, 
and after its formation was a member of the Oneida Conference of the 
M. E. Church, of which he was one of the fathers, and for about twen- 
ty-five years faithfully and acceptably served the church on various 
charges, principally in central New York.* While bestowing his pas- 
toral and ministerial labors on Amber charge in 1846-7 his health failed 
so rapidly that in the spring of the latter year he actually gave out 
while preaching a sermon at Spafford Hollow. He died at his residence 
in Vesper, Onondago Co., N. Y., May 22, 1848. His wife survived him 
and died Aug. 9, 1865. They were both buried at Vesper. 

In social life James P. Ayhvorth was cheerful, companionable, witty 
and instructive, his cheerfulness and wit never degenerating into any- 
thing unprofitable, was the joyous flow of a happily worded conversa- 
tion. As a standard bearer of the church of his choice he was a judi- 
cious and faithful administrator of discipline ; a lucid argumentative, 
able doctrinal preacher. A fuller biographical sketch will be found in 
the Northern Christian Advocate for July 5, 1848, and also in the Oneida 
Conference Minutes.

L'y;. REV. REUBEN A. (6)— Abraham (5), Benjamin (4), Philip 
(3), Arthur (2), Arthur (1)— was born at Half Moon, N. Y., April 13, 
1792, and married at Victor, Ontario Co., N. Y., Dec. 27, 1820, Jennette 
Ann Ridgeway, who was born at Little Egg Harboi", N. Y., in 1799, 
and who was a daughter of Captain Thomas and Jennette (Patterson) 
Ridgeway, of Philadelphia, Pa., and widow of John Rose, and who is 
said to have lived in Philadelphia, Pa , Paterson, N. J., Rochester and 
Victor, N. Y. 

The following sketch, written by Rev. E. J. Smith, is from the Chris- 
tian Advocate : 

Reuben A. Ayl worth was born in Half Moon, Saratoga County, N. 
Y., April 13, 1792, and died in Hampden, Geauga County, O., Sept. 3, 
1880. 

In 1810, he was converted and united wiLh the Methodist Episcojml 
Church, and in 1814 was granted license and began to preach. For 
some three years he labored in the bounds of New York Conference, 
and then was transferred to Genesee Conference, where for four or five 



225 

years he did effective work. His apiKjinlments were: 1817, Caledonia 
Circuit,; 1818, Lyons; 1819, Oloon Point; 1820, Bloomfield; 1821, 
Rochester. 

At the close of tliis Conference year, being naturally of a delicate 
constitution, failing health caused him to ask for a superannuated rela- 
tion, in which he continued until 1825, when he located, and continued 
thus until 1836. During this time, I think, wliiie he w^as superannuated 
he removed to Pennsylvania, But, regaining bis health sufficient to re- 
enter the active work, and having an intense desire so to do, in 1836 he 
was re-admitted into Erie Conference, in the bounds of which he tlien 
lived, and was appointed to Erie. But after five years more of effective 
work during which time he was on Jamestown District, and at Park- 
man, Chardon, Willougby, and Painesvillo, he was obliged to turn aside 
again on acccount of ill-health. Accordingly, in 1841, he was replaced 
on the superannuated list, and, having purchased a farm in Hampden, 
Geauga County, O., he continued in said relation and lived on said farm 
until death removed him to heaven. From the time of this last super- 
annuation until enfeebled health confined him at home, he was only a 
little less active, and none the less solicitous, in the church's work than 
when effective. 

In his early manhood he was possessed of conscientiousness and con- 
victions which commended him to the confidence of pure minded peo- 
ple, and fitted him for and followed him all through his chosen profes- 
sion. As to his preaching, it was above the average, and was the means 
of doing great good. Many are living who speak of it as clear, earnest, 
and efl'ective, full of grace and truth and power. As to his jjastoral 
work, he was one of the best. He appeared to study the wants of his 
parishioners, and to have the happy faculty of adapting himself to them. 
His large heart and gentlemanly bearing won him the resjject and con- 
fidence of every one, and jirepared the way for his message. A veteran 
in the cause, who was converted under his ministry, married by him, 
yisited by him, and who knew him well, said : "He was a perfect gen- 
tleman, very social, a most excellent pastor, and a splendid preacher." 

For the last twenty years of Father Aylworth's life he was a great 
sufferer, not able to leave his premises, and later his house, and still 
later his room and bed ; yet he bore all calmly, leaning upon his Sav- 
iour, and looking to the recompense of the reward. 

The last few weeks were marked both by intense physical suflering, 
being almost deaf and speechless and blind, and by great trust. He 
spoke cheerfully of his death, and joyously of his prospects for the fu- 
ture, and prayed that all his children and those near to him might be 
gathered into the fold of Christ. And, when his speech was clear gone, 
still his li]3S continued to move in prayer. " He enters heaven with 
prayer."

1776. They went to Derby, Vt., in 1806, where he died Aug. 26, 1839, 
and she Dec. 26, 1864. 

She was in many respects a remarkable woman. Reared and living 
in the backwoods until life was past its prime, and having very limited 
access to the periodical literature of the day, she yet possessed a very 
accurate knowledge of current events, and freely discussed the princi- 
ples of national policy, subjects on which but few farmers' wives would 
ventui'e to pass an opinion. History was her favorite study. A firm 
believer, and a consistent member of the Church of Christ, she never 
allowed a fitting opportunity to pass of inculcating principles of Chris- 
tian virture and morality. [A. O. Bayley.]

Canton village pajjer shortly after his decease, and is reproduced, not- 
withstanding the repetition of some dates and other particulars. 

DEATH OF AN OLD CITIZEN. 

Mr. Lyman Ellsworth, for forty-seven years a resident of this village, 
died at his house on State Street, on Thursday morning, the 13th inst. 
He had been ill but a few days, and old age may be assigned as the 
cause of his death. He was born May 15, 1796, in West Killingly, 
Conn., from which place the family removed about 1810 to Granville, 
Washington County, in this State. Mr. Ellsworth there married in 
1823, Miss Amanda Barnes, sister of Joseph Barnes, Esq., late of this 
town, and in 1833 removed to Canton, where he engaged in the boot 
and shoe business, which he pursued till a few months before his death. 
Mrs. Ellsworth died June 15, 1876, after a brief illness, aged 74 years. 

Mr. Ellsworth served in the war of 1812, and participated in the bat- 
ble of Plattsburg, and was a pensioner of that war. Highly esteemed 
by all who knew him, he seemed in a remarkable degree superior to 
that second childhood which is supposed to be characteristic of his ad- 
vanced age. Forty years ago his establishment was one of the largest 



bf its kind in the coilnty. Since 1852 he has resigned the control of the 
business to his son, J. B. Ellsworth, himself actually as foreman of the 
workshop, until a very short period preceeding his death. The funeral 
sei^vices were held at his late residence at one o'clock on Saturday last. 
Rev. Mr. Savage, of Norfolk, officiating. His remains were interred 
in the village cemetery.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. 

By Kev. D. a. WnEADON, D. D. 

Eli Aylswortli, still living (1887) at the age of eighty-five, furnishes 
a notable example of men who, by diligence, economy, and integrity, 
have risen from poverty to honor and wealth. He loves to tell to his 
children, and grand-children, and great-grand-children the story of his 
early years. He was born in Foster, R. I., June G, 1802, in an unclap- 
boarded house of two unplastered rooms, with two windows, no cellar, 
and a chimney of stones and clay. A married uncle and aunt — his 
father's sister and his mother's brother — lived in the same house. The 
father possessed a small piece of land, enough to make him and his old- 
est son voters under the old charter by which the State was then gov- 
erned. Only by unremitting toil and constant frugality was he able to 
meet the wants of a family which finally numbered twelve children. 

The boy Eli did not enjoy the advantage of schools until he was nine 
years of age. They were then few and from one to four miles away. 
He went to school one summer, and afterward for three or four months 
in the winter. What other education he ever obtained was gained in 
practical life. When ten years old he earned his first money, except 
))erhaps a few cents occasionally for an odd job. He found employment 
for the month of July in a hay field, and in payment received four sil- 
ver dollars. In the autumn following he found a job of digging pota- 
toes, his compensation being every tenth bushel. His share, sixteen 
bushels, he sold for two dollars. These six dollai's he handed to his 
mother, requesting her to keep them for him, playfully adding : " I 
always intend to have money." He has them still, and frequently 
boasts of his promise to his mother. He tells of another promise made 
her. !She was a Godly woman, and a member of the Christian denom- 
ination. When he was leaving home, she lovingly and faithfully sought 
to arm him against falsehood, profanity, and other prevalent vices. 
Under the examples around him he fell a few times into the use of pro- 
fane language, but on his next visit home he frankly confessed it all to 
her, promising that that should be the end of it. " My son," said his 
mother, "I rely upon your word." And the promise has been kept for 
seventy-four years. 

After the age of eleven years Eli never lived at home. He was hired 
at farm work in the summer, giving the proceeds to his father to aid in 
the maintenance of the family. Three years, bare-footed and coarsely 
clad, he worked eight months at one place, and in the winter went to 
school, doing chores for his board and paying his own tuition bills. 
Rising at midnight to chop wood, as he sometimes did, that he might 
get to school, was no easy way to get an education. When seventeen he 
was allowed to reserve for himself one-half of his wages, and out of the 



249 

summer e:irnings he clotliLd himself and loiined ten dollars to his grand- 
father. Tlie note then given was repeatedly renewed, and after the 
death of the maker, in 1843, he received twelve and a half cents on the 
dollar. " I felt well paid," he says ; " I took care of them." The love 
and sympathy shown the struggling boy were repaid in the care of flu; 
aged pair by the prosperous man. He also took care of his father and 
mother when sickness and age came upon thom, and aided in the sup- 
port of the younger children. 

At eighteen he obtained a clerkship in a store for a year, retaining 
his entire wages, when another was obtained in a store were jobs of 
weaving by hand were giving out to the people of the vicinity. The 
failure of this trader gave him the opportunity of entering upon busi- 
ness for himself. He was twenty years old, and just married to Miss 
Martha Bennett, a lady of admirable character, and a member of the 
Christian denomination. He had a capital of one hundred and forty- 
nine dollars. He purchased a building, and with the help of the neigh- 
bors, in country fashion, moved it to the desired location, where it was 
literally placed "on a rock." When completed, it had cost one hun- 
dred and eight dollars, to be paid "in goods." He then went to Provi- 
dence and sought the counsel of Mr. Randolph Chandler, an old mer- 
chat of ilie city, whose wise advice he implicitly followed, and returned 
home with a thousand dollars' worth of goods, mostly bought on credit. 
He worked hard, somt times starting at two o'clock in the mornins: with 
butter, eggs, and other produce, for Providence, returning at night with 
a load of new goods. The business was so well managed that the first 
year's profits amounted to nine hundred dollars. For four years his 
house-rent cost him six dollars per annum. Mrs. Aylsworth was his 
n)ost efficient helper, even bringing her cradle to the store that she 
might the more readily serve as clerk. For eleven years his stock of 
goods embraced a sui)ply of liquors, us was at that time the prevalent 
custom of country merchants. But he noticed the mischevious effects 
of drinking habits upon the community. His children were growing 
up around him, and he determined that they should not be drunkards. 
So he sold out the business, and soon afterward opened a strictly " tem- 
perance store," which at that period was a novelty in trade. From 
that time he has been an uncompromising foe of intemperance. 

Mr. Aylsworth thus became one of the substantial men of the town. 
He did some farming and also something in buying and selling real 
estate. His neighljors and townsmen trusted him. He was made a 
justice of the peace, and deputy sheriff, and held other offices. In 1838 
he was made Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Providence 
County, being associated with the Hon. Thomas Burgess, and Judges 
Daniels, Potter, and Armstrong. Meanwhile, as wealth was increasing 
and honors were falling upon him, he was called in 1837 to the loss of 

32 



250 

the wife of liis youth, and the mother of his nine children. Three years 
later he married Maria Fairman, a lovely and excellent woman, and a 

member of the Baptist Church. 

In 184:1 Judge Aylsworth sold his store and removed to North Foster 
and settled on a farm. But he soon found it expedient to, in order to 
save a debt of seven hundred dollars, to purchase three lines of stages 
running between Providence and Danielsonville, Conn , which rendered 
necessary his removal to the latter place. After six months he removed 
again to Brooklyn, just across the river. 

There was then but one church in Danielsville, the Congregational. 
The place was growing, and there was ample room for another. It so 
chanced that a Methodist local preacher, by the name of Wheeler, came 
into the town and opened a seiies of meetings in the conference room 
of the church, which resulted in about two hundred professed conver- 
sions. It soon became manifest that a large number of the converts 
desired to be organized into a Methodist Society, and another place of 
worship must be found. The Judge, though not a Methodist, pi'oraptly 
gave them sympathy and help. He at once hired for their use the ball- 
room of the hotel, the only available room in the town that was of suit- 
able size, stipulating for the closing of the bar on Sundays and at all 
times of service. But the room proved not large enough, and for a 
time the depot freight house was secured. He resolved on the erection 
of a Methodist Church. He found four men of like spirit with himself 
who joined him in the work. A lot was bought, the lot on which the 
present church stands, and a contract was made by which the edifice 
was to be erected, and, when completed to the turning of the key, the 
price agreed upon was to be jjaid. This was done. The j)ews were 
then sold, and the proceeds were enough to reimburse the jjrojectors of 
the enterprise and leave a surplus, which was turned over to the young 
society. It is only just to say that for this fine success the Methodists 
of Danielsonville are chiefly indebted to Judge Aylsworth. He was 
made one of the first Board of Trustees, and was kept in that position 
for some years after he left the State. 

In July, 1842, he was called to mourn the loss, by consumption, of 
his devoted wife, and remained fourteen months in lonely widowerhood. 
He then married Miss Eliza S. Angell, of Scituate, R. I., a lady of a 
beautiful character and well fitted for her new position. She has been 
for many years a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and still 
lives to bless his home. 

In 1850 Judge Aylsworth removed to Providence, R. I., whei'e he was 
well known and had many friends. His excellent judgment and judi- 
cious management of the interests entrusted to him, soon brought him 
plenty of business He was for a year a director of the Atlantic Bank, 
and was the first president of the Jackson BanU. In the same year, 
1854, he became a member of the first board of directors of the Me- 



M 

chanic' Savings Bank, afad of the loaDing eolnmittee, aiid (ot Gfearij'' 
twenty yeai-s he was its vice-president. His directorship continued un- 
til 1878, when he declined a re-election. During this entire period, in 
full compliance with the spirit of the law of the State forbidding offi- 
cers of savings banks becoming indebted to the bank, he would allow 
no paper bearing his name even as endorser to be accepted. In three 
years the bank was flourishing and successful, standing in the first rank 
of such institutions; and it is only just to say that much of its high 
character was due to his careful guardianship. 

In 1856 he was elected president of the Westminster Bank, which 
position he still (1887) holds. At that time the stock, with a par value 
of 50, was worth only 40. It is now worth 60. The capital has in- 
creased from $109,000 to .1200,000, and the bank has a surplus of $60, 
000. The pi'esident modestly attributes a large share of this success to 
a good board of directors. And the Judge asserts, with a becoming 
pride and satisfaction, that in the thirty-one years of his connection with 
these several institutions he has not borrowed a dollar from any one of 
them. He has been engaged in many real estate transactions, and has, 
as assignee, executor, or administrator, settled about thirty estates, some 
of them very large, and one of over a million of dollars. He, as agent, 
has invested a large amount for other people, and has loaned some hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars on western farm lands, and has given ad- 
vice and assistance in these and other matters to many of his friends 
without money or price. 

In political life Judge Aylsworth has had few ambitions. Yet in 1854, 
1866, and 1867, he was honored with a seat in the General Assembly of 
Rhode Island, and in the last two was a member of the important com- 
mittee on finance. 

He has always been on the side of liberty and right. In the presi- 
dential election of 1824, the first after he attained his majority, he cast 
his vote for John Quincy Adams. He affiliated with the Whig party, as 
in his judgment the most in accordance with human freedom and the 
best interests of the country. He was always an anti-slavery man, and 
when pro-slaveryism entered on its struggle for the control of the nation, 
his whole soul revolted, and he heartily joined the Republican ranks at 
thy organizatian of the party in 1856. In temperance, he has been all 
his life a habitual abstainer from intoxicating drinks, and is recognized 
as a non-partizan prohibitionist, willing to accept the restraints of a 
stringent, properly enforced license law. He is an intense hater of to- 
bacco in all its forms. 

On coming to Providence he connected himself with the Matthewson 
Street Methodist Episcopal Congregation, of which he is still a mem- 
ber. He was a member of the finance committee that in 1873 undertook 
successfully the task of removing its debt of nearly ten thousand dol- 
lars, and is a contributor to every good movement of the church.

Tiie judge has lakeli a deep interest in the pi'eioatation of this faiiiily 
history and has contributed liberally to its publication. 

He is passing a serene old age in comfort, gradually disencumbering 
himself of weighty cares, and enjoying the society of his family and 
friends.

FAMILY REUNION. 

[Prom Providence (R. I.) Evening Bulletin, Sept. 14, 1SS3.] 

One of the pleasantest rennions that ever occurred in this vicinity 
took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Joab P. Aylsworth, Nau- 
sauket Farm, on the eastern shore of Cowesett Bay, a short distance be- 
lov^r the village, last Thursday, the occasion being a reunion of the 
Aylsworth family. 

The trains from different directions brouglit a number of persons, 
othei-s arriving in carriages, and by noon some sixty or seventy of the 
family had collected. Among those present were: 

Judge Eli Aylsworth, of Providence, aged 81 years, and his estima- 
ble wife. 

Mr. Joab P. Aylsworth, aged 71 years, and his wife, of Warwick. 

Mr. Cyrus Aylsworth, of Foster, aged 65 years. 

Mr. John H. Aylsworth, aged 56 years, and wife, of Warwick. 

Mrs. Polly Phillips, of Foster, aged 75 years, a sister of the Judge. 

Mrs. Rothwell, of Boston, Mrs. Josiah Bennett, of Providence, Mrs. 
Abner Angell, of Providence, and Mrs. Edwin Burlingame, of Provi- 
dence, daughtei's of Judge Aylsworth. 

Mr. Curtis Aylsworth, of Providence, son of the Judge. 

Mrs. George Adams, of New Jersey, daughter of Joab P. Aylsworth, 
and husband. 

Mrs. Phebe Aylsworth. 

Mrs. Susan Hawkins. 

Mrs. Hiram B. Aylsworth, three daughters and son-in-law, of Provi- 
dence. 

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Aylsworth, of Providence. 

Mr. and Mrs. Albert Ayliworth, of Providence. 

Mrs. Oscar Aylsworth, of Apponaug. 

Mr. and Mrs. Fred A. Phillips, of Providence. 

Mr. and Mrs. Iliram B. Phillips, of Providence. 

Mr. Charles Bennett, of Danielsonville, Conn. 

Mr. and Mrs. Damon Cahoone, Mrs. Nichols, Mr. George M. Weeden 
and wife, Mr. Charles Allen and wife, of Warwick. 

And between thirty and forty others, relatives of the family. 

After a pleasant hour or two in greetings and social conversation, the 
dinner bell announced that the clams were I'eady, and all wended their 
way to the summer dining-room, whei'e four tables, each laid for twen- 



255 

ty-fire persons, were tastefully arranged. The bill of fare consisted of 
baked clams, chowder, clam cakes, baked blue fish, brown bread, pies, 
cakes, tea coffee, cold tea, melons, and innumerable tasty little dishes. 

Mr. and Mrs. Joab P. Aylsworth have a fine reputation for preparing 
and serving shore dinners, but it was the unanimous opinion of all pres- 
ent that this feast surpassed any of their former efibrts, and was as near 
perfection as it could be. 

After having done ample justice to the splendid dinner, the party 
scattered about through the extensive buildings and grounds, the elder 
persons occupying the spacious parlors of the mansion, where slories 
and fiimily reminiscences were related. Conspicuous among the num- 
ber was the tall and erect form of the oldest living member of the Ayls- 
worth family. Judge Aylsworth, who bears the weight of his yeais 
lightly. He was Iwrn in a little one-room house in the town of Foster, 
nearly eighty-two years ago, and is to-day very proud of his native 
town, in tlie praise of which he referred to U. S. Senator Aldrich, 
Mayor Hayward, Prof. Alonzo Williams, of Brown University, and 
other prominent men as Foster boys. 

Besides the three brothers and one sister present at this gathering, the 
Judge has one sister, Mrs. Celinda Phillips, residing in Foster; another, 
Mrs. Marcelia Phillips, ^in Iowa, and a brother, Philip Aylsworth, in 
Kentucky. He has seven children, twenty-two grand-children, and 
eleven great-grand-children living. 

Among those who rendered much assistance in making the gathering 
pleasant was our John H. Aylsworth, the artist, who has been "making 
faces" at Rocky Point and Oakland Beach all summer. His sallies of 
wit and funny sayings created shouts of laughter. Among other things 
he claimed that there was no other family in existence could show up as 
many "heavy weights" as the Aylsworths. 

As the day drew to a close those Avho reside in this vicinity took their 
departure for home, while those living at a distance decided to remain 
:md visit friends for a short season, but before separating all expressed 
themselves as having passed a delightful day, the remembrance of 
which would long remain green in their memories.

DEATH OF JOSEPH P. AYLSWORTH. 

[Prom Newport (R. I.) Dally News, April 24, 1S84.] 

The flag of Rhode Island Lodge on Odd Fellows' building is at half- 
mast out of respect to the late Joseph P. Aylsworth, who died last night 
after a long illness. In his death the Rhode Island Lodge of Odd Fel- 
lows and Aquidneck Encampment have lost one of their oldest and 
most faithful members, one who was always at his post of duty and 
who never allowed a brother to want either for sympathy or financial 
aid. He joined the lodge in 1816, and at the time of his death was 73 
yeai'sofage. He has been associated with Mr. Thomas Crosby in the 
management of the bathing houses at Easton's Beach for many years, 
and had made a large number of friends from all sections of the coun- 
try who will be pained to learn of his death. He was familiarly known 
as " Uncle Josy," and was addressed in this manner by th*^ rich and 
poor alike. He always knew faces, and no one who trusted him with 
their valuables while they were enjoying a bath had ever cause to regret 
it, as the articles were never given to the wrong person. The deceased 
leaves an untarnished name as a heritage to his family and friends.

*' The Thnes the other day contained a notice of the death of Robert 
Aj'lsworth, of Raisin Valley, who exjjired May 31st, aged 78 years, 2 
months and 20 d:iys. The death of this old pioneer deserves more than 
a brief mention. He was born in Adams, Mass., March 11th, 1799, 
and moved to Michigan in the fall of 1827. He located three and a half 
miles north of Adrian, upon the farm where he has resided until his 
death. He traveled from here to Monroe on foot, to enter the land 
which he has made a garden since. Himself and wife have lived to- 
gether over half century, and have been for forty-two years members of 
the Friends' Chvu'ch, in the Valley, being among the fii'st attendants 
and supporters of the old log church, which stood on what is now 
known as the Bailey farm. Nine children were the fruit of their mar- 
ried life, four daughters and five boys, four of the latter and one of the 
former are deceased. The simj)le habits and industrious ways of Mr. 
Ayls worth, made him respected and beloved by all with whom he came 
in contact. He has seen the wild forest grow into a blooming garden 
in that peaceful valley, and almost with joy received the message that 
called him through that other valley, eight years after he had passed 
the alloted three score and ten. liequiescat in pace, Robert Aylsworth."

Laban J. Aylsworth was a man of excellent judgment, a successful 
medical practitioner, an honest man, a good citizen, and a deacon in 
the Presbyterian Church. lie was beloved by all who knew him. His 
success in the treatment of the then prevailing malarious diseases cost 
him his life. He died in the harness. The older doctors were jealous 
of him, and when he was finally prostrated by the poisonous fever, the 
writer of this was just old enou<ih to look over the dash-board and drive 
him around to make his visif.s. When no longer able to be about and 
before he became delirious he told his wife not to allow any one to bleed 
him, but she was told by the old doctors that the only way to save his 
life was to draw blood from his head, which was done, and then the 
end. He was buried at Marshall, Mich. [H. D. A.]

DEATH OF AARON AYLSWORTH. 

Aaron Aylsworth died in Clarence, N. Y., Oct. 3d, 1883, of apoplexy, 
in the 75th year of his age. 

The deceased w.is bora in Hudson, N. Y., in 1808, and came with his 
parents to Clarence in 1812. He spent his life on the farm where his 
father first settled, and lived to see the then wilderness blossom as the 
rose. He had kept in an extraordinary degree his vigor and youthful 
appearance, but during the past summer he heard the last steps of the 
coming messenger and made haste to set his house in order, to pass over 
Jordan. A last visit to his sons and daughter, to his only remaining 
brother and sister in the West, he and his wife had made, and had 
started home to the laud they loved so well. Before reaching Detroit 
the strong man bowed himself to the stroke, while the silver cord was 
gradually loosening. He reached his home, but never fully realized it, 
and after lingering on the border-land patiently and meekly, as he had 
lived, he quietly passed to the long home above, where all tears are 
wiped away. Nature had endowed him with a strong, persevering and 



2§1 

industrious spirit, and added to tlnese the rarer graces of a genial, hope^ 
ful and courageous heart, and his unfailing cordial salutations -will lin- 
ger a memory among all his friends. 

Though past the three score years and ten his advice and decisions 
were still sought by his children, though some of them had gone out 
into the world years ago. Daring the great revival in the Baptist 
Church at Hunt's Corners in the winter of 1S6G and 'G7, he was con- 
verted to Christ, and died in the full assurance of faith. As he said to 
a Christian stranger not long before his demise, " All that was settled 
with my Savior long ago." There were gathered at his funei'al his be- 
reaved widow and seven sons and daughters and one adopted grandson, 
All of his children were present, save one daughter, who was in St. 
Louis, Mo., and by irregularity of trains was delayed in Illinois till too 
late to pay the last token of respect to a father whom each delighted to 
honor. 

He left to his children the best inheritance, a respected and unclouded 
name, as a citizen ; as a neighbor, highly prized ; as a husband and 
father, one whose departure was the going out, in a large degree, the 
light of the old home ; and as a Christian, his life was its own exponent. 
His remains were interred in the old yard east of the church, where 
quietly repose his people to the fourth generation, and there left to sleep 
the sleep of peace until the glorious morning of the resurrection shall 
dawn. 



DEATH OF MRS. JULTA AYLSWORTH, 

[From Buffalo (N. Y.) Commercial, Feri.28, 1S87.] 

Died in Clarence, on the afternoon of Feb. 23, 1887, of apoplexy of 
of the lungs, Mrs. Julia Aylsworth, widow of the late Aaron Ayls- 
worth. The deceased was born in Windham, Conn,. Aug. 6, 1812, and 
while a child, came with her parents to Western New York. In her 
youth she became a teacher, and in 18;13 was married. She was a woman 
of rare intellectual endowments, and her tine, quick mental perception, 
gave a zest to her pursuit of knowledge, even to the last year of her 
life. She was the mother of nine children, eight of whom survive to 
" rise up and call her blessed," and though not to all was given the 
privilege of ministering to her in her last illness, for her youngest son 
was detained at his home in Nebraska, she was as lovingly and anxious- 
ly remembered by the absent. While yet young, she gave her heart to 
her Savior, and the consolations of faith was her's, even down to old 
age. The death of her husband was a sorrow from which she could not 



fr92 

I'gdovei'. The home ^hicli is gathci-mg oil " the other side " had gl'dat 
attractions for her, and when the summons came she was ready and 
anxious to depart. Her death is the breaking up of one of the old 
homes in Clarence, and her children sorrow for her, •' as one who 
niourneth for his mother." On Sunday, the 27th of February, they laid 
her beside their father, in the hope of that glorious resurrection, prom- 
ised to the redeemed. 

421. CATHARINE HAVENS (G)— William (5), William (4), Ar- 
thur (3), Philip (2), Arthur (1) — was born in Hudson, N. Y., June 2, 
1810, and married at Clarence, N. Y., Dec. 30, 1829, Emory Weltly 
Hunt, who was born at Hoosick, N. Y., Sept. 23, 1803, and who was a 
son of Eben and Hunt. 

He was a farmer and teacher, and they dwelt in Clarence, where he 
died Dec. 1, 1857. 
Their child : 

i William Havens (7) b. March 28, 1839, died in Clarence June 
14, 1859. 

After the death of her father, Catharine, the eldest daughter, was the 
chief stay and comfort of the bereaved mother, and exercised a most 
salutary and restraining influence over the two older brothers, who 
much needed a father's guidance. Dignified and stately, but loveable 
withal, her affection for her kindred was very marked. No brothers in 
her estimation were quite as thoughtful and kind as her own. In her 
father's family she was regarded as the one to whom respect and defer- 
ence were due next to the mother. After her marriage she removed 
one mile north of her old home, and there resided till her death. She 
died as she had lived — a Christian. Her church membership was with 
the First Baptist Church of Clarence. She lived to bury her husband 
and child. Sick and alone she never doubted the goodness and grace 
of her Lord. Walking by faith through a vale of tears she at last en- 
tered in " through the gates into the cily." She died of consumption, 
as did also her husband and son, and in her death a family became ex- 
tinct. [F. P. A.]

Arthur (1) — was born in Hudson, N. Y., March 22, 1812, and married

Aug. 19, 1835, and where he died Aug. 1, 1862. 

In dying she was listening for the rumbling of wheels which she was 
sure would bring her mother to her, but to hca- spirit it was the chariot 
of Israel. [F. P. A.]

home and die. But hope revived in the hopeful heart, 
and he thought to lengthen his life by taking a trip to 
ujtper lakes. Keturr.ing from Ontonagon Lake, Mich., 
he sought the hon)e of his uncle, Aaron Aylsworth, of 
Clarence, N. Y., where after six weeks he died of hem-

BIOGrtAriHCAL SKETCH. 

Jonas Conkling, son of Asahel nnd Harriot C. Aylsworth, was the 
youngest of a family of boys. The daughters who had come to the 
household died in infancy ; but nature, as if to make amends for the 
lack of a sweet, sisterly influence in the home, gave to this youngest son 
a double portion of those graces of spirit and person, and beauties of 
mind nnd heart which win admiration without exciting envy. He was 
born in Canaan, Columbia Co., N. Y., where the early years of his 
childhood were spent in the quiet seclusion of a country home. Later 
his father removed to Granville, O., where the surroundings were all 
«liff"ei"cnt. The spirit of enterprise and ambition, which marks all 
towns bordering on the frontiers of a new country, gave a greater zest 
to study and a stronger desii-e for higher attainments. The town of 
Granville, O., was an enlarged and improved copy of Granville, Mass. 



297 

Here were found :i cuUtuTd, intelligent oonunnnily, surrounded with 
all the vofincmeDl :ind elegancies of an old eastern place, set, down on a 
liroader ba,sis in a richer land, with an enterprising management, with 
fine schools and a liberally educated ministry. This, in the midst of a 
new country, was a sort of an open door to the new State of promise, 
Indiana. All these, with their influences, benign or heroic, told on tli<; 
life of the young man, and helped to make him in later years that fair 
expression of a fine type of manhood which he became. 

He was educated at what is now Denison University, but the real ed- 
ucation, the acquisition of useful knowledge, which I'eceived ils bent in 
that institution, went on to the last week of his life. 

With the many advantages, for mental culture, thei-e was no neglect 
in his father's house of those stern Puritanic doctrines which marked 
the religious faith and practice of those early days, of rigid intolerance 
of the simple amusements of the young. As years passed on they must 
have softened, in some degree, the strict discipline of that household, 
and it is possible that the punish nents meted out to this youngest son 
were less severe than those the older ones had experienced, for some 
boyish freak of mischief. There was a strict attendance at church in 
those days, regularly as the Sabl)ath returned, and from three to five 
services a day, Avere a trial to the overflowing spirits of the boy, even 
of that ijcriod. Let us trust, however, that much of that enforced reli""- 
ious knowledge was not lost on that generation, nor its succeeding 
ones. 

A picture of that home with its internal routine would not be difficult 
to imagine. The father, a genial man, with thrifty ways and few an- 
gularities of character, save that he always cai-ried about with him the 
l)urden of a full belief, realization, and practice of that injanction of 

scripture with a promi-e attached : " Ti'ain up a child in the way he 
should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." The stately, 

handsome mother presided over this house with a grace and dignity in- 
herent to her. 

The servants about the houses and farms in all that section were 
Welch by birth or descent; a slow, stolid race of deliberate comprehen- 
sion, of faithful, unhurried service, and of names unpronounceable. 

Fit subjects were they for the amusement of the bright, active, over- 
flowing-with-fun Young America of that jjeriod, and many were the 
j)ractical jokes which these restless boys invented, and their eager hands 
carried out, at the expense of the innocent Welch. Strange daring of 
youth when there was no question about the punishment to follow. 

Time passed, and one by one the sons went out to try their fortunes 
further west. The youngest secured, at the age of seventeen, the posi- 
tion of a Iloosier schoolmaster near Fort Wayne. The experiences of 
one winter was sufficient, and he afterwards had position in the store of 
38 



298 

his older brother, Charles, at Fort Wayne. Later he returned to Gran- 
ville, and remained there some years after his marriage, when he moved 
on to his farm in Brownville, Neb., where he learned some of the hard- 
ships of pioneer life. The breaking out of the War of Rebellion drove 
him, with many other refugees, to tlieir old homes. He soon located in 
Attica, Ind., where his brother, George, was in the banking business. 

The life of Jonas Aylsworth which was spent in Attica, is an open 
book to which his family can turn and read a record of one to whom 
honor and respect are freely accorded ; an excellent inheritance to the 
three sons who are taking their places in the world af business. 

His business life was measured by a high standard, and his integrity 
bore the test of a period of over twenty yeai-s, in which he did a large 
business with the farmers and grain dealers of Fountain, Tippecanoe 
and Warren Counties, with them his word was above being questioned. 

His loss is heavily felt in the City Milling Co., of Attica, which he 
planned, organized, and superintended, and to which he gave an un- 
ceasing activity, even when the mark of death was upon him Faith- 
ful to the last, he fell at his post' 

He was a Mason of many years standing, aud secretary of his home 
lodge for a long period, and was respected, beloved and mourned by the 
brethren of fratei'nity, and buried with Masonic honors. 

He was a man of fine personal appearance, six feet tall, with the 
manner and bearing of a gentleman, not by education and association 
alone, but as one " to the manor born." His face was of that fine, 
handsome type which has marked some members of each succeeding 
generation of the Aj^lsworth family from the time of Artliur, when 
these chai-acteristics were first noticed and recorded. Tliere was the 
same full beard, with the least touch of sandy in it, a forehead smooth, 
broad and white, above it lay waves of brown hair ; blue eyes, large, 
honest and kindly, bespoke the true heart below ; of fair complexion ; in 
all these he stood a very Saul among his brethren. 

But the spirit which dwelt in this house of clay was more beautiful. 
His charity was broad — a mantle large enough to cover the faults of 
those who were about him. His generous, sympathetic nature touched 
with pity for others in trouble made his house a home to any needing it. 
He had a forgiveness which forgot as readily as it forgave an injury. 

Nature made him genial and sunny, and not often was hope eclipsed 
in that brave heart of his. 

His reading had been extensive and comprehensive, gifted with a re- 
tentive memory, and being a close observer in all his travels, his mind 
was well stored, th^'se and his keen sense of wit and humor, a vein of 
which he possessed, made him, when in congenial company, a man of 
rare conversational powers. 

In political matters, in government, in historical research, in bio- 



i^99 

graphical- kno-wledge, in the topics of the times, in the g'eiieral iaiarch ol 
intelligence, he was the lexicon to whom his wife and children could 
tm'n for correct and intelligent information. 

Home loving, here his heart centered, and shown out most fair his 
blameless life. In his relations as husband and father, he was sympa- 
thetic, self-sacrificing and considerate, and one of the beatitudes which 
found a place in his heart, has had its fulfillment, for " Blessed are the 
pure in heart, for they shall see God." 

Here his life was a benediction, and the "Peace on earth, good will 
toward men," which the angels sang above the Judean plain, was a 
pronounced trait in his character. 

His disease, paralysis of the right side, came with but little warning, 
but was received and borne with such a meek. Christian resignation as 
his family can only recall with tenderest recollection. 

Never a murmur or a frown, but just thankfulness that speech was 
not impaired. For the first week there was hope, but in the second the 
stroke fell again, and again born with patience and meekness. " Sure- 
ly," said one mourning watcher, " grace must abound." 

Death came by slow and painless approaches, heavy sleep with occa- 
sional awakening to clear perceptions, till on Saturday, the 11th of 
April, 1887, without a tremor, and scarcely a sigh, the spirit took its 
departure. 

The funeral services, held at his house, were attended by a large 
crowd of fellow citizens and friends. He was buried in Riverside Cem- 
etei-y, near the wife, son and father who had preceeded him. 

'' May he have part in the first resurrection."

DEATH OF JONAS C. AYLSWORTH. 

[From Attica (Ind.) Leader, April U, tSST.] 

The death of Jonas B. Aylsworth, which occurred on last Saturday, 
afternoon, (April 11th), was not unexpected. From the time of his 
first stroke of paralysis, the physicians and family had but little hope. 
The death of Mr. Ajdsworth is not only a loss to the family, but to the 
city of Attica. He was one of its most prominent and trusted ciiizens. 
His quiet ways did not permit his character or ability to be measured 
by the public generally, but those who were intimately connected with 
him in a business or social way will attest to both. His character was 
above reproach, and his success in all the duties placed upon him at- 



Lested to his line corumercial abilities. For twclity-ibnr jears he had 
done business with the j>eople of this and Warren counties, and l»:id 
daily come hi contact witli them. To-day, of all that vast number, not 
one can point to a disrepula])lt; or dishonorable act. Honesty was the 
corner-stone of his life and ujjon it he built a character that posterity 
will cherish and mankind praise. In public trusts he was just as trusty 
and eflicient. For several years he served the g<jvernmeut in a position 
full of delicate duties and served it well. As the representative of the 
people of this city in the council and on the school board he displayed 
good executive ability and wise foi'ethought. In all the relations of life 
lie performed all his duties unostentatiously, yet with that honesty of 
purpose and wisdom that made him a splendid reputation as a man 
with a well-balanced, broad and liberal mind, and a character as nearly 
pure as mortals ever build. To the young sons, just entering upon the 
threshhold of life, his life must be a powerful incentive for good citizen- 
ship and useful lives. He has left them a name that is worth more than 
all the riches man can have. May they keep it before them as a guid- 
ing star and learn from it the path to success and honor among their 
fellowmcn. To the bereaved widow and the young daughter, who.^e 
tears drop over the graves of father and mother in the city of the dead, 
the sympathy of all the people of Attica is extended. May they find 
consolation in a review of the honoi-able life of him whose lose is so 
keenly felt. 

The Masonic Lodge of this city is another sincere mourner. He had 
been connected with this order for tAventy-seven years, and had been its 
secretary for nineteen years, the only intermission being while in the 
government employ. His books are marvels of neatness, and his as- 
sistance to the order, both with pen and voice, was always valuable. In 
the lodge-room, as in the business world, his place Avill be hard to fill. 

The funeral services took place at the residence on last Monday after- 
noon, being conducted by Kev. Wm. Wilmer. The remains were in- 
terred at Riverside Cemetery, the Masonic fraternity having charge of 
the burial services. 

Jonas C. Aylsworth was boin in Columbia County, N. Y., in 1831. 
He was the youngest child of Asahel and Harriet Aylsworth. In 1839 
the family removed to Grauville, O. His father Avas a farmer, and he 
was raised a tiller of the soil. His education w^as obtained at Granville 
College. In 1858 he went to Nebraska, where he lived five years ; a 
part of this time he was a clerk in the United States land oflice. In the 
spring of 1863 he came to Attica and took an interest with Fallis & 
riowman in a grist-mill. This firm sold out to Brown & Telford, and 
IVIr. Aylsworth superintended it for them until July, 1874, when he was 
appointed special agent of the pension bureau. In Octobei', 1877, he re- 
signed and reltu'ued lo Atliea, find immediately the Attica Mills Co, 



m 

Was incoi-poi-atecl and he became the president and manager. In this 
position ho remained until tlie mills shut down. In the spring of 1881 
the City Milling Co. was incorporated iind a splendid new mill was 
built. Mr. Ayisworth became secretary and manager and held these 
positions at the time of his death. INliuh of the success of the new 
company is due to his reliable business methods and his honorable de.al- 
ings. Mr. Ayisworth was married to Miss Mary W. Atkinson, of Pat 
askala, O. She died in 1877, leaving four children, who now mourn 
the death of father. He married again in April, 1880, Lura F. Ayls- 
wortb, of East Clarence, N. Y., who survives him. Mr. Ayisworth 
sei'ved three terms as councnlman of this city and several years as a 
member of the board of education.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. 

Bv n. M. Aylswokth. 

Homer Elhanan Aylsworth was born in Burlington, Otsego Co., N. 
y., Sept. 8, 1838. His youth was passed upon a farm, attending the 
district school of the neighborhood winters, until he attained to the age 
of sixteen years. He possessed a vigorous, strong and evenl}' balanced, 
rather than a brilliant intellect, with a fondness for the fine ans. Hi; 
possessed musical talents of a high order, which early aUi'acted the at- 
tention of his father, and which he aided him to cultivate to the extent 
of his limited means. But his youth was passed in a rural community, 
far removed from the advantages desirable and necessai-y for the proper 
cultivation of the fine arts. He prosecuted, however, as best he could, 
his musical studies at home in connection with his farm life and scliool 
duties, until at the age of sixteen he was placed under the able iuslruc- 



350 

iiofa of Pi'of. J. A. Foi^V^lei", a then celebrated teacliei* and composer, 
liaving charge of the musical department of the Cherry Valley Female 
Academy, at that time a flom-ishing institution located at Cherry Valley, 
N. Y. Here he made such rapid imj^rovemeut that two years later he 
was sutTiciently advanced to embark in teaching piano and organ music; 
and as necessity compelled the effort to be made in his own behalf, he 
visited Ann Arbor, Mich., then a young growing town of the West, 
where he engaged in teaching vocal and instrumental music. He also 
had classes at Dexter, Chelsea, and Ypsilanti, neighboring villages, and 
remained at Ann Arbor aud Dexter until the summer of 1875, when he 
visited Illinois, destined to be his future home. His stopping place was 
Williamsville, near Sprinpfield, where he had relatives. He remained 
in that vicinity teaching district school and music until the spring of 
1859. 

His fiither having died in December, 1858, leaving his business affairs 
in an unsettled condition. Homer E., with his brother, Henry M., also 
teaching in the West, returned to the widowed mother and younger 
brother in the East, in the spring of 1859, and resumed for a time the 
business and duties of farm life, carrying on the old homestead. He 
found it necessary to institute a suit in the supreme court to recover the 
title to the patrimonial estate, which had been placed in the hands of a 
relative who refused to transfer it to the rightful heirs. This suit he 
prosecuted with great energy and ability, and succeeded in recovering 
the title to the property, although the litigation ended only in the court 
of appeals, the tribunal of last resort in the State, 

The following year he resumed his studies, com^Dleting his prepara- 
tory course of study at Cooperstown Seminary, then under the able 
management of Prof. R. C. Flack, and in 1861 entered Union College, 
Schenectady, N. Y., for the Scientific Com-se, and graduated with his 
class in 18G3, notwithstanding tiie want of means compelled him to 
teach for about twelve weeks during the winter months of each of the 
years of his college course. He was a thorough student. During the 
period of his college course he not only kept up with his college exam- 
inations but found time, besides teaching as stated, to prepare and de- 
liver a number of lectures on music, geology, chemistry, and other sci- 
entific subjects traversed by him in his college course, which were ably 
prepared and well received, evincing thorough familiarity with the sub- 
jects treated, and a breadth of intellect possessed by few. 

After his graduation he was engaged for a year as vice-principal in a 
preparatoi-y school located at Newburg, on the Hudson, after the close 
of which engagement he returned to Illinois, and soon after commenced 
the stndy of medicine at Roseville, in that State, which he ever after- 
ward made his home. He attended medical lectures at Ann Arbor, 
Mich., and graduated from the Medical Department of the University 



3ol 

of Michigan at that place in 1867, Returning to Roseville he engaged 
in the active practice of medicine, wliich calling lie followed for a year 
and then founded the "Pioneer Drug Store" at Eoseville and developed 
its trade, which business he successfully conducted until his death 

In June, 1867, he was united in marriage to Miss Flora A. Eldredge, 
foster daughter of Truman Eldredge, Esq., of Roseville, one of the 
sturdy and prosperous pioneers of Warren County, a lady of culture 
and refinement, who still survives him, to care for the thi-ee children, 
which were the fruits of their marriage. 

He was prosperous in business, and saving in his habits, but life 
proved too short, in his case, for the accumulation of a fortune, although 
his family are left, with economy, a comfortable support. 

The latter years of his life were employed in collecting the data for a 
record or history of the Aylsworth Family, dateing back from the time 
of Arthur, the Emigrant. To this task he addressed himself with his 
accustomed zeal and energy, and labored with indefatigable industry. 
Besides wTiting many thousand lettei's he visited different sections in 
various States, and in Canada, where the family had been dispersed 
since its origin, at considerable personal exjjense, and had the satisfac- 
tion of knowing that his woi'k was nearly completed, ready for the 
compositor, when was compelled to lay down the pen that had recorded 
so many deaths in the ancestral lineage before him, to take up, as we 
trust, the crown of immortal life and touch the strings of a golden harp 
in the presence of the angels! In this task, which had become to him 
a labor of love, he had the pleasure of meeting many pleasant acquain- 
tances, some of whom have kindly and generously assisted and contrib- 
uted to this great work since his death. But he left it, as a chronologi- 
cal and genealogical record, substatially as the reader finds it, its publi- 
cation having devolved upon others whose names I would gladly men- 
tion had I sufficient information upon the subject. 

In his domestic relations he was a kind husband and an indulgent 
father, and will be missed through the coming years most by the object 
of his greatest solicitude in life, his son, Murray, who hns the misfor- 
tune to have been crippled from his birth, with no hope of recovery. 

He was an exemplary citizen, ever lending support to the leading re- 
forms. A temperance man himself all his life and deploring the ruin 
that intemperance so often invites upon individuals and families, he 
conscientiously abolished alcoholic stimulants from the list of commodi- 
ties kept for sale in his place of business Though this brought opposi- 
tion in the way of competition in trade, he could not be induced to com- 
promise with what he considered morally wrong for the sake of i^ecun- 
iary gain. A conscientious adherence to what he considered right was 
the ruling principle of his life. 

At the early age of thirteen years he experienced religion and united 
with the M. E. Church, which membership he retained at the time of 



352 

his death. Though sparing in the matter of personal expenditures, he 
gave liberally, according to his means, to the cause of religion, and pro- 
moted at all times, and under all circumstances, the interest of the 
church. He was in very deed a worker in the vineyard of the Lord. 
He was seldom absent from the praj-er meeting, and Sabbath found him 
generally with the worshippers. He was chorister, and also Superin- 
tendent of the Sabbath School in his church at the time of his death, 
where he was very much beloved. Indeed his death, it is thought, re- 
sulted from a cold contracted in sitting chilled in church the Sabbath 
before. 

And so in the mid-day of his manhood, in the full strength of his in-

borders the green fields of everlasting life, there to rest from his labors 
and receive his reward.

The following extract from the Northern Christian Advocate, of Dec. 
17, 1845, is inserted without the advice of any member of the family, in 
order to more fully illustrate the strength of the domestic ties which 
bound them together, and the steadfast reliance of the father upon Di- 
vine Grace for strength to pass through one of the severe afflictions of 
his life, perhaps second only to the loss of his youngest son : 

The following affecting and beautiful lines were composed by Mr. 
Orin Aylsworth on the occasion of the death of his little son. The child 
who was about eighteen months old, was at play about the house when 
he was discovered by his sister, older, to have a bean in his mouth. She 
called liim to her to take it out. He came running to her for this pur- 
pose, and as he lifted up his smiling face to her the fatal bean glided 
down the windpipe, and he was a corpse in five minutes. 

The Mourning Father's Soliloquy. 

Father in heaven, 
Thou hast called home one of our little band. 

And to him given 
The brighter glories of the better land. 
Help us to bow submissive to thy will — 

Say, peace, be still. 

That morning mild 
Beheld him full of life. The noon, 
The lovely child

fetill ioyous at his play : laiit soon, 
Ere in the west sank the bright orb of the day, 
Edson had joassed away. 

Be thou a friend 
To fatlier, mother, friends, and children dear. 

And condescend 
To guide and guard us while we wander here, 
Protect us by thy might, and, O defend 

When time shall end!

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. 

By Kev. D. a. Wheadon, D. D. 

Ilirum Bennott Aylswovth, son of Juilj^e Eli and Martha B. Ayls- 
woitli, was born in Foster, R. I., on the lOth of February, 1831, and in 
that town the fii'st ten years of his boyhcxxl were passed. In 1811 he 
removed with his father to Killingly, Conn., and a year later to Brook- 
lyn, in the same State. His education, beyond the public schools, was 
obtained at the Smithville Seminary, now knoAvn as Lapham Institute, 
and at East Greenwich, while his training in the elements of business 
life was received at the hand and under the eye of his father, by whom 
he was taught the promptness, exactness, and fidelity which have 
marked his maturer and more responsible years. 

At the age of seventeen he removed to Providence and entered upon 
a clerkship in the office of Mr. Preston Bennett, then agent of the Rich- 
mond Manufacturing Company, with whom he remained until May 20, 
1850. He then became bookkeeper for Messrs. George F. Rice and 
Henry R. Congdon, wholesale dealers in boots and shoes in Providence. 
This house is now one of the oldest mercantile houses in the State, hay- 
ing been founded in the year 1815 by Charles Cobb, a member of the 
Society of Friends. It was not to be expected that young Aylsworth, 
with his energy, would be content with keeping books an hour longer 
tlian was necessary, and it excites no surprise to learn that in two years 
from that time he was on the road selling by sample. Such was the 
care he used in effecting sales that for thirteen years he did not lose a 
single bill, and so successful was he that on February 8, 1857, he was 
made a partner in the business, the name of the firm becoming Rice, 
Congdon & Co. 

This position, so well earned and so gratifying to his ambition, was in 
four months followed by an event of greater consequence and more vit- 
ally touching his happiness. On the 11th of June, 1857, he was united 
in marriage with Miss Margaret Miller Hatfield, daughter of Elisha 
and Elizabeth (Millei) Hatfield, of White Plains, N. Y., and sister of 
Rev. Dr. Robert M. Hatfield, then of New York city, a lady of a lovely 
character, whose rare womanly virtues have for thirty years made her 
the delight of her husband and the joy and ornament of his home. Few 
men have been so fortunate in the companion of their life. 

In February, 1860, Mr. James Rothwell pm-chased the interest of 
Mr. Rice, and for the next two years the business of the concern was 
conducted under the name of Congdon, Aylsworth & Co., and then by 
the retirement ot Mr. Rothwell, of Congdon & Aylsworth. In 1875 
Mr. Frank H. Congdon, a son of Mr. Henry R. Congdon. was admitted 
a partner, which arrangement continued until 1882. When the elder 
Mr. Congdon died, in 1883, Mr. Aylsworth became sole proprietor, re- 
50 



394 

taining by agreement the old firm name of Congdon & Aylsworth. 
Dov?n to May, 1870, the business had been located on North Main Street. 
At that date it was removed to the corner of Pine and Hay, and twelve 
years afterward, in 1882, to the corner of Pine and Peck Streets, where 
it still (1887) continues. 

Whatever ambitions in life Mr. Aylsworth may have sometimes felt, 
the highest and dominant one has been to be a true business man. If 
he has at any time listened to other voices calling him, it has been only 
temi)orarily. While never refusing co-operation and aid in other 
weighty and worthy matters, his business has been his one work, and to 
it he habitually brings his undivided enei'gies. He is not forgetful of 
his relations with those engaged in like pursuits with himself. He was 
one of the original members of the Board of Trade, and for three years 
a member of the executive committee. He was also one of the original 
members of the Providence Commercial Chib, and for several years 
was one of the trustees of the Mechanics Savings Bank. 

He is one of that class of business men, not too numerous, who be- 
lieve in uprightness, integi-ity, and devotion to duty. A merchant's 
Avord is, in his view, a precious thing. Deceit and fraud are to him an 
abomination, and laziness a sin ; yet for the unfortunate and distressed 
he has great tenderness and ready help. With his principles and habits 
it is not strange that his career has been in'osperous and successful as 
well as honorable, or that men of like spirit Avith himself become his 
friends, attached to him with hooks of steel. 

On his first coming to Providence Mr. Aylsworth attached himself to 
the newly formed Methodist Ej^iscopal Congregation, which soon located 
and built a house of worship on Mathewson Street. Indeed, he boasts 
of having earned his first fifty cents in serving as its sexton. In 1869 
he became a member of that church, and in subsequent years held the 
important offices of steward and trustee. In these positions his careful 
and methodical business habits made bis services of great value. The 
plan adopted in connection with the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 
church in 1873, of liquidating its debt of nearly ten thousand dollars, 
originated with him, and, under his management as chairman of the 
finance committee, was carried to a successful issue. In 1876 he trans- 
ferred his relations to the Union Congregational Church, where he per- 
formed a like service on a similar committee, with a much larger in- 
debtedness. In these and kindred causes, charitable and religious, he 
gives freely of his wealth. He carries the principles of his business 
into his benevolences. He loves to make money, and he equally loves 
to give it away. Many thousands of dollars have gone in this way, and 
few know the conscientiousness and care with which these appropria- 
tions are made and distributed. 

Politically, Mr. Aylsworth is a Republican. His innate liatred of op- 
pression and wrong made him one. At the breaking out of the slave- 



^9^ 

holders' rebellioh he seiit ohe of his clerks as a substitute, furnishihg 
him with an outfit and continuing his salary, and when he returned 
wounded in the first battle of Bull Run he took him into his own family 
until his recovery and then gave him his old position. He then sent 
another, and continued a soldier in the field until the rebellion was 
throttled. He has been many times a member of the Republican State 
Convention and often of the State Committee, and in 1873 he was a 
member of the House of Representatives in the General Assembly. To 
tlie principles of his party he has always been warmly devoted, but, to 
Ills credit, party bonds have always sat more loosely upon him than 
principle, and he has on occasion found a keen pleasure in breaking the 
slate of party managers, or spoiling a nicely framed political intrigue. 

In the year 1876 Mr. Aylsworth ei-ected his pleasant house on Har- 
vard Avenue, where he now resides. With his stalwart frame, strong 
constitution, temperate habits, and Christian style of living, he has good 
reason to hope for many years yet, surrounded by his friends and with 
his children near him. 

Mr. Aylsworth has taken a deep interest in the publication of this 
family history, and has been the financial head of the enterprise.
