And of course, throughout this 500 years there were "wars and rumors 
of wars"; crises and tidings of impending doom, contrived by numerous 
power-mad Little Men. reigning or ruling with or without the consent of 
their fellowmen, as King, Lord Protector. Prime Minister, Chancellor, Reichs- 
fuehrer. Dictator, Generalissimo. President and Indispensable Man. 

All soon to be forgotten in the shining light of those everlasting per- 
sonalities, such as Moses, the great law giver; Jesus Christ, the humble 
Christian; Washington, the modest saviour of the New World, and Mahatma 
Gandhi, who proved that freedom can be won without war. 

While the power-mad Little Men have all gone — we hope — to their just 
deserts, they have left behind a new secret army of our most insidious 
enemies — the tax collectors. 

The biblical extortioner of the "poore wyddowe's myte" was magnani- 
mous compared to the suave, artful Machiavellian of this age, who bores like 
a termite, many times, into every segiment of industrial and social life. 

for a "David" to slay this arch-enemy before he and his tribe suckle 
the life-breath of our Industrial Freedom.

without success." (This could have been land attached to a manor house for 
his forebears' personal use. It was during the reign of the House of 
Plantagenet. I 

"The same person, however, on trial at Guildford against a writ of 
quo warranto, established the right for himself and his men of Clandon to 
buy and sell in Guilford market without paying tolls. 

"At the same time John Atte water was summoned to answer the charge 
of having seized and imprisoned Robert Le Ken at Clandon Regis: in answer 
to which he pleaded the complainant was his villain, and the question was 
decided in his favor." 

It is also stated that on the Rolls of Parliament, during A.D. 1290, in 
Vol. I. Fol. 62. can be found the following: 

'Robert Attwater, with his wife Isabella, brings an Assize of Novel 
Dissiezin, . . . touching tenements in Rotherhethe." The above mentioned 
property was located on the south bank of the Thames, two and one-quarter 
miles south-east from St. Paul's Church. London. 

Another interesting notation associated with our family name and also 
establishing the family relationship with "Ickford," is found in a folio pub- 
lished in the 16th Century and called Nomina Villariim. This volume con- 
tained the names of Cities, Boroughs, Villages, and Hundreds, including 
therewith the lords of all the manors throughout all the counties of England 
from the year 1316 to 1559. including: 

"Johannes Atte Water certified pursuant to writ tested at Clipston. 
5 March, 1316. as one of the Lords of the Township of Ickford. in the county 
of Bucks." 

We also find in the History of Buckinghamshire. Vol. I. the following 
interesting Attwater references: 

"Ickford, Hickford. Iksford (in Saxon, Teemzaford. from a watery way 
or passage through the Thames. ) 

"Robert Earl, of Morton, half-brother of William. The Conqueror (1066- 
1087 A.D.I granted this manor, with Marsh, to the Abbey of Grestein. 
founded by Harlewin de Conteville. his father, and Ickford was by the Abbot 
and Convent granted to a family deriving its name from this place. . . . How 
long Grestein Abbey continued to enjoy the estate in Ickford is unknown, 
but having been seized by the Crown during the Wars of Edward II. 
(deposed by Parliament January 7, 1327) and again restored, it was a second 
time forfeited and family of Ickford is no longer mentioned, unless their 
descendants are to be identified with persons denominated Atte Water de 
Ickford, who afterward possessed a considerable estate here." 

"William Atte Water de Ickford died in 1311. seized of the Manor of 
Great Ickford, held of the King in capite. and in 1325 Nicholas Ryhall. 
Person of Ickford, passed lands in Great Ickford. with pasture of six oxen 
and six cows, by fine, to John Atte Water, and Joan his wife, and their heirs."

4 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

42. page 22. Christopher had four sons and a daughter, Joanna, who married 
Stephen Cooke. Their children brought in the Atwood and Best families. But 
we are only concerned with John Attwater, who married Susan Narsin. 

Of this union, there were three children — Joshua, Ann and David, who 
were to be the first Attwaters to land in and assist in a very important part 
of colonizing a portion of the New World. Father John neglected to leave a 
will — dying in October 1636. Susan, mother of Joshua, had him appointed 
to administer the estate. 

Three months later, Susan died during January of 1637. She was buried 
next to John in the Lenhani Church yard. 

Burrialls 
"Nov. 1 (1636) John Attewatter. pater familias. 
"Jan. 9 (1637) Susan Attewatter. Wid." 

The register also shows Marriages and Christenings. Under the latter 
heading during the period from 'Michaelmas, 1610, unto Michaelmas, 1611' 
there is the following entry: 

"June 2. Josuae, the sonne of John Attwater. 
"George Hudson, Vicar 
"Thomas Heriman 

Churchwardens." 
"William At-Water 

The administration papers indicate that Josuae, at the age of twenty-six 
was a 'Mercer' in Ashford. a market town near Lenham. 

Now, these, our direct ancestors, Joshua, David and Ann Attwater, 
embarked on 'The Great Adventure.' Beginning with that unpredictable, long 
and treacherous ocean voyage, of many weeks, to eventually found a different 
habit in the 'New World.' which would be temporarily referred to as the 
'Republic of Newhauen.' 

There is much speculation but no authentic data as to why and how 
our Attwater ancestors joined up with the Davenport-Eaton Expedition. 

While their parents had passed away during the year, Joshua and David 
must have been part of this cabal for a considerable time. Apparently Joshua 
was a man of capital in his own right, while David had recently inherited 
several properties from an Attwater relative. So it was natural for John 
Davenport to seek out these young men of capital to help finance his 
expedition. He had recently returned from the Continent — it is said — disguised 
with a long beard. Be that as it may, he was a non-conformist at odds with 
the authorities, in which our Attwaters must have joined. Ashford was the 
seat of this group of non-conformists. So it is reasonable to suppose that 
Joshua induced his brother and many from the market town to join the 
expedition. It is reported that the Expedition included over two hundred 
men, women and children. When we realize that man flys over that same

In the spring. April 1638, the entire original London group with 
additions under the leadership of Peter Prudden — a non-conforming minister 
of the Church of England — arrived at Quinnipiac from Boston. 

On their first Sabbath. John Davenport conducted the religious service 
in the morning. Peter Prudden preached in the afternoon. This dual leader- 
ship could not last long. Prudden and Davenport could only agree to disagree. 
The former's followers soon purchased the territory now known as Milford 

With Prudden out of the way, Davenport proceeded to found an

class far worse in its dogmatic control — if not in its purpose — than the non- 
conformists had complained of at home. 

The first act of the 'Seven' was to decide that the 'right of suffrage 
shall be conferred on church members only.' On the 22nd of August 1639, 
the 'Seven' had 'instituted the Church by a solemn and formal covenant one 
with another.' On the 25th of October, they granted the right of suffrage to 
'all those that have been received into the fellowship of this Church, since 
the gathering of it, or who being members of approved churches, offer 
themselves.' 

In this manner, the 'Republic of Newhauen' was organized, with the 
election of Theophilus Eaton, Magistrate for the term of one year. Robert 
Newman. Matthew Gilbert, Nathaniel Turner and Thomas Fugill were 
closen Deputies 'to assist the Magistrate in all Courts called by him for the 
occasions of the plantation, for the term of one year.' Thomas Fugill was 
appointed Secretary and Robert Seeley as Marshal for the Colony. 

After the 'Townsite' had been laid out by John Brockett, house lots 
had been given to each of 'The Planters,' according to his or her family 
size and the amount of taxes each one was willing to pay. In General 
Assembly during January of 1640, it was ordered that the land outside the 
'two-mile-square.' be divided and taxed as follows: '. . . all the upland in 
the first division, with all the meadows in the plantation, yielding to the 
public treasury four pence an acre yearly, and all the land in the second 
division two pence an acre yearly.' 

On the first day of September 1640. by order of the 'Court.' the name 
of the settlement was changed from Quinnipiac to New Haven. It must be 
remembered that this 'Church State' had been organized by a superior, 
Puritan culture group, with a background of literary London. It was the 
hey-day of Shakespeare, Spencer, Thomas Dekker and Ben Johnson. A few 
of the 'Separatists' had fled to Holland. The great majority stood their ground 
and the 'New World' gave many their chance for freedom.

MESSUTUNCK. alias NEPAUPUCK. 

26:28: 
A Generall Court 29: of Octob: 1639: 

This Indian, at a hearing before 'Mr. Eaton,' had been accused of 
murderously shedding the blood of some of the English. 'And by his order 
safely kept in the stocks till he might be brought to a due tryall. 'And the 
Indian who had attempted his escape was whipped by the marshall his 
deputy.' 

'The Quillipieck Indian Sagamour" on the following day. 'wth diurs 
of his Indians wth him were examined before the magistrate and the 
deputyes for this plantatio concerning Nepaupuck. They generally accused 
him to haue murdered one or more of the English, and that he had cutt of 
some of their hands & had presented them to Sassacuse the Pequott sachem, 
boasting thatt he had killed them wth his owne hands. 

Mewhebato a Quillipieck Indian, kinsman to the aforesaid Nepaupuck, 
comeing att the same time to interceed for him was examined: . . . att first 
he pretended ignorance, butt wth a distracted countenance, and in a trembling 
manner: being admonished to speake the truth he did acknowledge him 
guilty according to the charge the other Indians had before made. 

'AH the other Indians withdrawing, Nepaupuck was brought in and 
examined, he confessed that Nepaupuck was guilty, . . . but denyed thatt he 
was Nepaupuck. Mewhebato . . . charged him to his face after some signes 
of sorrow, thatt he had assisted the Pequotts in murdering the English, this 
somewhatt abated his speritt and boldenesse; butt Wattoone the sonne of 
Carrahoode a councellor to the Quillipieck Indian sagamour comeing in, 
charged him more perticularly thatt he had killed Abraham Finch an English 
man att Weathersfield and thatt he himselfe. the said Wattoone. stood vpon 
the island att Weathersfield and beheld him the said Nepaupauk now present 
acting the murder.' 

'Nepaupuck being by the concurrence of testimony convinced, he con- 
fessed he was the man namelt Nepaupuck. and boasted he was a great 
captaine, had murdered Abraham Finch, and had his hands in other English 
blood, he said he knew he must dye, and was nott afraid of itt. butt layd 
his neck to the matletree of the chimmey, desireing thatt his head might be 
cutt of. or thatt he might dye in any other manner the English should 
appoynt, onely he said fire was God, and God was angry wth, therefore he 
would not fall into his hands. After this he was retourned to the stocks and 
as before a watch appoynted for his safe custody.' 

At 'Generall Courte' on the third day. . . . Finally. Nepaupuck. 
'confedded thatt he had his hand in the murder of Abraham Finch, butt 
yett he said there was a Mohauke of thatt name thatt had killed more then 
bee. Wattoone affirmed to his face thatt he, the said Nepaupuck. did nott 
onely kill Abraham Finch, butt was one of them thatt killed the 3 men in 
the boate or shallop on Connectecutt riuer and thatt there was but one 
Nepaupuck and this was he, and that same thatt tooke a childe of Mr. 
Swaines att Wethersfield. Then the said Nepaupuck being asked if he would 
not confess yt he deserved to dye. he answered, it is weregin. 

The Court haue had such pregnant proofe. proceeded to pass sentence 
vpon him according to the nature of the fact and the rule in thatt case, he 
thatt sheds mans blood, by man shall his blood be shed, accordingly his 
head was cutt off the next day and pittched vpon a pole in the markett place.'

forth dead. Itt had no haire on the whole body, the skin was very tender, 
and of a reddish white coUour like a childs; the head most straing. itt had 
but one eye in the middle of the face, and that large and open, like some 
blemished eye of a man ; over the eye, in the bottome of the foreheade wch 
was like a childes, a thing of flesh grew forth and hung downe. itt was 
hollow and like a mans instrumt of genration. A nose, mouth and chinne 
deformed, butt not much vnlike a childs, the neck and eares had allso such

'The day of the executio being come, George Spencer the prisoner was

14 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

In the 1649-1662 New Haven Town Records, published by New Haven 
Colony Historical Society, there are many references to Joshua and David. 
'Mr Atwatters ye Treasurer,' acted as administrator of a number of estates. 
He was also chosen 'Deputy' of the Court for a number of years. He appears 
as plaintiff, in a number of actions before the Court, to recover for goods 
and cattle sold. In more than a dozen cases, he requests permission to sell 
land. 

At one hearing, it was ordered: Ttt is ordered thatt brother Attwater 
(note spelling) and Robt Hill shall be exempted fro watch in their own 
persons, by reason of their bodyly infirmityes, yett so as to finde each of 
them a man to watch their roome.' 

In 1646. Thomas Fugill, first secretary of the Colony, was dismissed 
from his office and excommunicated from the New Haven Church, for 
'falsyfying of orders and records' and thereby securing 52 acres of land to 
which he was not entitled. 

In the list of estate (p. 93) with the names of 'Planters,' we find the 

following listings: 

"' 'persons - acres - Ist.div. - neck - meadow - 2nd-yearely rate. 

'Josuah Attwater' 2 300 20 4 16 64 01-11-06 

'David Attwater' 1 500 2414 141 1-11-14' 

During one of these sessions, the Courte sentenced 'Richard fido. hath 
bine a false vnfaithful servant to his Master' and also 'Thomas Meekes for 
stealing, receiving stollen goods, and intertaining & inviting mens servants 
... to drink strong watter' and 'conceale it.' etc. 

'Therfore the sentenc of ye Court is that Thomas Meekes paye twenty 
pounds as a fine for these misdemenours and miscariages, and when fido 
and Sloper is whipped, he and his wife are to come to ye whipping post, and 
stand ther. putting each of them one hand into ye hole of the post whill ye 
other are whipped: that they may haue part of ye shame wch their sinn 
deserveth: and to give security for the fine, or paye it presently, and to pay 
the due charges of the prison.' 

On the '30th of the 6' Mon: 1641' at a Genrll Court hearing: "Mr. 
Goodyeare propounded his purchase of Mr. Farrets Lland" to the towne, butt 
itt was nott accepted." 

■""Now called Shelter Island. Mr. Goodyeare . . . purchased May 18. 
1641, and sold it June 9. 1651, to Thomas Middleton. Thomas Rouse. Con- 
stant Sylvester and Nathaniel Sylvester, for 1600 lbs of good, merchantable 
Muscovado Sugar."

16 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

It was during this period that New Haven Plantation united with 
Connecticut (Hartford) Plantation, with the definite agreement that each 
town should remain a capital. 

Training in the Market-Place and keeping watch were two duties of all 
Church-Court members, unless exempt. ""John Benham informed the courte 
that he was fined by the courte for neglecting to warn Dauid Attwater to 
watch. It was by the secretarie that then was, entred 5s, but it was but 2s:6d, 
and seing diners doe remember it was but 2s:6d. the courte agreed that he 
should paye no more." 

"Dauid Attwater entred an action against Mathias Hitchcocke, for 10 
pounds wch the said Mathias Hitchcocke receaved of Dauid Atwatter, for 
the service of Thomas Whitehead for four years and eighte moneths, wch 
Mathias Hitchcocke could not performe. he not haueing a full right to dispose 
of the saide Thomas . . . but now the said Thomas declareth himeselfe willing 
to abide w'h his master David Atwatter, till he maye heare from his vnkell, 
so he maye haue just satisfaction for the time to come, so longe as he stayeth 
wth hime. They bothe agreed before the courte. that he should haue 3 pounds 
a yeare, meate, drinke and clothes." 

"David Atwater, Richard Mansfield, is to finde each of them a man to 
watch at the towne in regarde of ther house lots heare." 

Why the 'Courte' required owners of vacant house lots, to supply a man 
for watch is beyond our comprehension. This original precaution was insti- 
gated to be ready for any emergency. However, our Colonists were more 
fearful of the Dutch than the Indians or other catastrophy. 

There was a fight with the Dutch over Stamford. "The Dutch authorities 
at New Amsterdam reported to their superiors in Holland that 'Rodenberg' 
or New Haven, contained, eleven years after it was founded, about 1,340 
families. But, though affirmed of New Haven town, it must have been . . . 
their informant's estimate of the population of the Colony." 

He died in 1692. He had out-lived most of the original planters who 

arrived on the Hector in 1637. David's farm — known as Attwater East Farms 

— was on the west side of Quinnipiac or New Haven. 



The Colleg-iate School 

Later to be known 



as 

Yale College 

On Christmas Day, in 1641, at Town Meeting, a proposal was made to 
establish 'schools for all, where the rudiments of knowledge might be gained, 
schools where learned languages might be taught: a public library: and to 
crown all, a college in which young might be fitted for public service in 
Church and State.' 

Livermore states in his 'Republic of New Haven': 'Schools, public and 
private, which were always maintained in New Haven, probably found their 
prototypes and models in the collegia which existed or had existed, in the 
mother towns of Ashford, Coventry and London.'

The others were: 'Rev. Samuel Andrew of Milford, who for several 
years was a resident Fellow and Tutor at Harvard, where he gained great 
reputation as a scholar and as an instructor, and later became the second 
Rector of Yale. 

Rev. Thomas Buckingham, of Saybrook. a native of Milford, educated at 
Hopkins School in New Haven and long recognized as one of the most able 
men in the Colony. 

Rev. Irrail Chauncey. of Stratford, son of the second president of Harvard 
and at one time teacher in the Hopkins School of New Haven. A man of 
varied gifts, who beside his standing as a clergyman, had a high reputation 
for medical skill as well as general scholarship. 

Rev. Samuel Mather, of Windsor, closely connected with the celebrated 

Mather family of Boston and exceptionally successful as a pastor. 

Rev. James Noyes, of Stonington. the leading minister of the Colony, and 

the one usually invited to preside as Moderator at councils and other meetings 

of the clergy. 

Rev. Abraham Pierson, of Kenilworth, son of the principal founder of 

Newark, N. J., who on coming to Connecticut, took a prominent place at 

once among the ministers of the Colony and was known as an able scholar 

and later became the first Rector of Yale. 

Rev. Noadiah Russell, of Middletown. a native of New Haven, where his 

parents had been among the original settlers. 

Rev. Joseph Webb, of Fairfield, where he had settled but a few years prior 

to 1700. 

Rev. Timothy Woodbridge. of Hartford, than whom no minister in the 

Colony had a higher reputation for learning, for wisdom in counsel, and 

for public spirit, and had gained more completely the public confidence.' 

At this time. New Haven was part of Connecticut. Seven of the ministers 
came from sections that had formed the original 'New Haven Republic' It 
was natural, therefore, with the Rev. James Pierpont as leader, that New 
Haven was choosen. as the site for the college, by the majority. As remarked 
by one member of the Assembly: 'We on purpose gave your academy as 
low a name as we could, that it might better stand in wind and weather.' 

The Trustees met at Saybrook and organized on November 11. 1701. 
Jacob Heminway was the first student. The first graduate was Nathaniel 
Chauncey of Stratford. Eight students registered under one tutor in Septem- 
ber of 1702. 

During the next fourteen years much discord arose thru the lack of 
proper meeting arrangements. In the beginning, students were forced to 
travel to Milford to Pierson's home. And in the second rector's period, the 
home of Samuel Andrew had to be visited for lectures. At the last commence- 
ment held in Saybrook (1716) the only tutor resigned. Students were 
distributed throughout the entire Colony.

20 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

In my Yale Genealogy, published in 1908, under a picture of Elihu 
Yale, is the caption— < FOUNDER OF YALE UNIVERSITY). Now let us 
review the facts to ascertain the truth or absurdity of this claim. 

The Collegiate School had been in existence for many years before Elihu 
Yale made any response to the numerous requests that had been made for 
his assistance. As an Atwater descendant, you shciLl know that Elihu was 
the third child of David \ale, one of the original planters of the New 
Haven Colony. 

Apparently, David Yale must have considered the 'Church-State hierarchy' 
in New Haven not to his liking, as we find him established in Boston as 
early 1641. And there is no doubt about his civil and religious difficulties 
in the home of the 'bean and the cod.' Not being in sympathy with local 
laws, nor religious dogma of the colonists, David took personal action, as 
a member of the established Church of England. Inducing six others to join 
him, a revolutionary petition was presented to the General Court of Massa- 
chusetts Bay. The appellants objected to the 'non-admission to the churches, 
of those who acknowledged the established religion of England, and at the 
non-participation of the inhabitants, who were not members of the colony 
church, in the management of civil affairs, as voters and office holders.' 

'The authorities of Massachusetts' were not ready for such a revolu- 
tionary change. The petition's most offensive clause was a threat of appeal 
to the parliamentary government in England. And they were not satisfied 
with a carefully drawn argument but included a fine of $600. which David 
Yale had to pay. He returned to England in 1651. His second son. Elihu, 
born in Boston on April 5. 1649, returned with his mother and brother 
David, to England in 1652. 

As a young gentleman, Elihu lived thru one of the most turbulent periods 
of England's checkered history. There was the rise and fall of Oliver, 
Croniwell's regime; the Restoration; the plague and the Great Fire. It was 
also the heyday of Milton. Dryden, Jeremy Taylor, Richard Baxter, George 
Fox and Wm Penn. 

The East Indian Company racket, which had been established by a 

grant from that notorious Elizabeth, the First, now attracted the interest of 

Elihu Yale. The interesting story of his reign, as Governor, for five years, 

at Madras, accumulating a fortune of '500,000 pagodas'; his removal from 

office by the Company; and numerous trials, including one for murder"; 

does not picture 'the founder of Yale' as a very worthy hero for such an honor. 

( ■" Had one of his grooms hung for riding a favorite horse of his without 
permission. ) 

It was thru the efforts of Jeremiah Dummer, agent in London, for 

Province of Massachusetts Bay and the Colony of Connecticut, that Gov. Yale 

became interested in the Collegiate School. During 1711, Mr. Dummer wrote 

the Rev. James Pierpont, the actual founder of Yale College, suggesting the 

possibility of securing funds from the 'former Governor of Fort St. George.'

Dummer. despite his justifiable pleas, failed to induce the heirs to recognize 
it as a valid legacy. 

The Yale Genealogy refers, here and there, to the Governor's marital 
status. While Elihu married Catharine Elford Hynmers at Madras, in 1680, 
the Genealogy 'admits — that he also was living' there, "in immoral relations 
with a Mrs. Nicks and a Mrs. Pavia. the latter a Portuguese Jewess.' Mrs. 
Hynmers is described as 'a copper-colored native of India.' But recent his- 
torians have placed Mrs. Hynmers as English, even though they admit she 
might have been Portuguese and a Jewess! 

There were many men, during those early years of the Collegiate School, 
who gave much time and substance to the success of the College project: 
Joshua Attwater. John Davenport. Governor Hopkins and many others. And 
finally, there was the Rev. James Pierpont. who influenced the Assembly. 
managed the Trustees, with perseverance and diplomacy, and finally brought 
about the action that culminated in the building in New Haven. 

Rev. James Pierpont should have been recognized as the founder of Yale. 

The name 'Yale College' was changed to 'Yale University' in 1887, by 
authority of the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut. 



The Charter Oak Incident 

Until about 1658 New Haven had apparently not given much thought to 
obtaining a charter from England, but about that time some thought was 
given this matter. It did not seem too urgent and as the situation in England 
at that time was not favorable the matter was dropped. 

About 1660 the Connecticut colony, which comprised of Hartford, 
Windsor, and Wethersfield, felt that it was highly desirable that a charter be 
obtained, giving them title to the land they had settled. Consequently in July. 
1661 their Governor. John Winthrop. Jr. was sent to England to attempt to 
obtain a charter for Connecticut. On his way he stopped at New Haven to 
discuss the matter with its leaders. There appears to be no record of any 
understanding having been reached, but there seems reason to believe that 
New Haven's Governor. William Leete, was in favor of having the Charter 
include both colonies, 

Winthrop was successful in obtaining a favorable charter from King 
Charles II in 1662. However, when the New Haven Colony learned that it 
embraced both the Connecticut and New Haven colonies, much opposition 
was voiced and an appeal was made to the King. By late 1664 much of the 
opposition had been quieted and certain compromises made by both colonies 
so that on December 13, 1664 New Haven held its last Court, for the purpose 
of terminating the colony. On January 5, 1665 New Haven wrote the 
Connecticut Assembly declaring submission thereto and in the spring of that 
year four magistrates were sent to the Connecticut Assembly.

Rev. Edward E. Atwater of New Haven 

No. 732 

It is fitting that all those who bear the Atwater family name should 
make the acquaintance of Edward E. (1816-1877). for each owes him a 
debt whether he knows it or not. 




Edward Elias Atwater was a native of New Haven. Conn., where he was 
born May 28, 1816, the son of Elihu and Julia E. Thompson Atwater. He 
attended Yale, graduating in 1836, and in the following year entered the

26 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

"Tradition says that the family of Joshua, in the male line, soon became 
extinct; and all researches yet made serve to confirm it. He was probably a 
married man at the time of his emigration, as his family is numbered as 
two persons in the list of planters. If this be so, he soon lost his wife, for he 
married Mary Blackman, the daughter of a clergyman in Stratford, May 
6, 1651, by whom he had two sons and one or more daughters . . . Previous 
to 1665, or early in that year, he removed to Boston, as in a deed dated 
in that year, by which he conveyed to his brother David his house and 
lands in New Haven, he describes himself as 'Joshua Atwater of Boston, 
New England.' 

"If it be true that the family of Joshua in the male line became extinct, 
all in America who bear the name of Atwater are descendants of David. None 
have yet been found who could not trace their lineage, by means of this 
register, to him." 

This 1851 volume lists six males in the second generation, seventeen 
in the third, thirty-four in the fourth, and fifty-four in the fifth generations. 
In the 1871 revision of this document the compiler adds a few items of family 
history, but in a very modest way. 

The Rev. Mr. Atwater visited England twice during the later years of 
his life, once in 1875 and again in 1887, with a purpose "to ascertain with 
as much exactness as possible what relation of consanguininity there was 
between Robert Atwater of Royton Chapel and the other Atwaters in his 
neighborhood. My first study was of the diocesan register at Canterbury. 
As my eyes ran over the list of baptisms in Lenham, my attention was arrested 
by the name of Anthony Thompson ... I recognized the name as belonging 
to one of my ancestors . . . But what was my surprise to find . . . that the 
blood of the Atwaters and the Thompsons, which had become commingled 
in my own veins . . . had been commingled two centuries before in the veins 
of Anthony Thompson, whose mother was, I believe, the granddaughter of 
Robert Atwater of Royton Chapel." 

Edward E. began the compilation of the record of descent of the Atwaters 
in England in the expectation that he might publish his findings, but he died 
before the task was well under way. It was advanced by Robert Henry 
Atwater of Washington, D. C. and published by Francis Atwater of New 
Haven. 

Reverend Edward, however, wrote several volumes, one at least on a 
theological subject, and two valued volumes, one on the history of the New 
Haven Colony ( 1880) and the other on the History of the City of New Haven 
(1887). He must have had a prodigious memory and he proved a delightful 
companion as he made contacts with members of the family in his travels. 
(See Atwater History. Vol. 1, Pg. 432-436, for Rev. Amzi Atwater's account 
of a trip in and near New Haven in 1880 with Edward E.)

This opportunity afforded to the writer to review the record of Rev. 
Edward E. Atwater has made him appreciate more than ever the debt which 
those who bear this name owe him as the first systematic compiler of the 
family records. It took much time and faithful research to produce the volume 
of 1851. Today that volume seems primitive in contrast with the latest volumes 
about the family like this one and those published by Francis Atwater. But 
such a genealogical record was not born in a day. Only patient and per- 
severing work produced the very adequate record which we and our children 
now enjoy. Edward E. chose to begin his studies at a time when priceless 
records and memories were failing. Let us hope that in our generation there 
may be others with similar industry to carry on the task. 

— Reginald M. Atwater, M.D. 

Clara Barton 
A Friend of the Family 

The present generation of Atwaters will have little acquaintance with 
the esteem in which phrenologists were once held. In the period of say 
1830 to 1860 they were popularly believed to possess scientific powers and 
to be able to prescribe the best line of endeavor for one to pursue. In an 
impressive manner the phrenologist would "examine" the person before 
him, announce his characteristics, and advise which had best be developed 
and which corrected. 

Such a one was L. W. Fowler who. when on a visit to the home of 
Stephen and Sarah Barton at Oxford. Massachusetts, was asked what their 
daughter Clara, ought to do in life, answered., 

"The sensitive mature will always remain. 
She will never assert herself for herself; 
she will suffer wrong first. But for others 
she will be perfectly fearless. Throw respon- 
sibility upon her." 
Fowler's advice was that she should become a school teacher. 

Perhaps other children of fifteen have had expressed the manner in 
which their character could develop in future years but this prophesy was 
to be fulfilled through a lifetime of service to others that is outstanding. 

Here was a woman who was destined to 'stand before Kings' and receive 
the honors of many countries. No American born in the 1920's can live 
to know as many presidents as knew her and gave her praise. 

Born on Christmas Day in 1821 she was in her 60th year when the 
American Red Cross was formed and was 83 when she retired. A small, erect 
person, only five feet tall, she preserved a remarkably youthful manner 
until well beyond the years when many would have been saving their energy. 

In Miss Barton's efforts to assist families in tracing soldiers who had 
been reported missing after battles in the South, she was assisted by Dorence

her to Havana. As near as I can recall she was then ILS or il6 years of age.

ATWATER GENEALOGY 



13th centuries arms appeared increasingly on shields. Within a short time 
most of the great houses in England and upon the Continent were displaying 
them. ' ^ ^ 

Writers attribute the sudden emergency of heraldry at this time to the 
need of knights and lords for some mark of identification. When they were 
in full armor, they were unrecognizable. Few could read so instead of usmg 
a nanieplate each man adopted a distinctive insignia, known as a "coat of 
arms." He displayed this on his shield, banner and horsecloth, as well as on 
his coat, and wore it in civil life as well. The hereditary character of heraldry 
owed its existence to the feudal social system in which society on its secular 
side was held together by personal allegiance of each man to his lord. The 
coat of arms became not only a symbol of the owner's identity but also his 
status as well. 

The great increase in the number of coats of arms eventually made 
some kind of control necessary. By the end of the 13th century, about 1.500 
arms had been adopted in England. Evidence points out that in the 14th 
century ownership of arms had acquired legal recognition. By the 15th 
century, it became the duty of the "King of Heralds," later known as the 
Kmg of Arms and also the Garter, to register the arms of noble gentlemen 
and still later to give patents of arms to applicants. The King of Arms or 
Garter was assisted by a number of heralds. The output of patents steadily 
mcreased from the reign of Henry VI to that of Elizabeth, after which there 
began some decline. Those to whom patents to coats of arms were issued 
were corporate bodies, higher ecclesiastics and all classes of new men. How- 
ever, with the discontinuance of tournaments and the change in the character 
of war. emphasis in the use of heraldry shifted from military to civilian use. 
During the Tudor period, the symbolic use of arms at funeral increased while 
Its use in war diminished. With the passing of the Tudors, heraldic art 
generally declined. 

The English and Continentals drew upon the entire animal kingdom and 
garden for heraldic devices. Some of the more common were the lion, leopard, 
stag, wolf, eagle, falcon, the rose, fish, fleur-de-lys, swan and the ass head! 
Other well-known devices from other sources frequently used were the sun, 
crescent, mullet, escallup, shells and sheaths of grass. In certain instances' 
the wearers selected symbols suggesting their names. Examples of these are 
as follows: 

The House of Griffon bore the griffin 
The House of Drake bore the fire-drake or dragon 
The Cockfields bore silver three cocks gules 
The Pelhams bore azure three pelicans silver 
The Lucys bore gules three luces (or pikes) silver 
The Herons bore azure three herons silver 

The three swans, likewise, in the Atwater coat of arms, together with the 
wavy bars, suggest 'Svater,"

other, that family is entitled to a differenced version of the arms. Unrelated 
families, therefore, who have the same surname are given a dissimilar plain 
coat of arms. 

The Atwater coat of arms was worn on several important State occasions 
in the history of England. It is first recorded as being borne by John Water, 
York Herald at Arms, at the funeral of King Edward IV in 1483. His arms 
were described as "sable, on a fesse wavy argent, between three swans of the 
second, two bars, wavy azure, crest a demi-talbot argent, in the mouth an 
arrow gules." These arms belonged to the "Atwaters of Kent." with variations 
of the fesse for difference. The arms with the same crest were confirmed to 
Robert Atwater of Kent by Clarencieux Harvey in 1564. with ''the colors of 
the crest being transposed for difference." Robert Atwater being without 
male heirs, it is found that his daughter Mary, who married Robert Hony- 
wood, inherited several of her father's manors and bore his coat of arms. 
At the entrance of one of the Honywood manor houses, a contemporary 
writer in the late 16th century described the carved quarterings of the 
family's arms. One of these was the "Sable, wavy, bendy, of four, in fesse 
argent, between three swans proper, for Waters."

Among the more progressive of those early New Haven settlers — and the 
Attwaters should be included in this category — were many traders. In order 
to satisfy the demands of the growing population and incidentallv meet the 
superior requirements of some of the more 'Opulent' members of the Colony, 
it was found necessary to go far afield to meet these demands. 

Ships that were built in the Colony were soon sailing the seven seas. 
In order to appreciate the extent of these enterprising traders, one should 
read the account of my direct ancestor. Jonathan, seventh son of David the 
First. Known as 'The Merchant Prince of New England,' Jonathan traded 
throughout the world. His will, as outlined on pages 99 to 110. of Atwater 
History of 1901, proves his diversified and far-reaching contacts.

which Atwater had been a part owner. The NEUTRALITY sailed from New 
Haven on or about February 19, 1799, bound for Martinique. On April 1. 
1799, the ship was captured by a French privateer and was afterwards recap- 
tured by the United States ship Constitution and carried into Martinque and 
proceeded against for salvage by the re-captors. On April 16, 1914, the court 
dismissed the claim for want of sufficient evidence." 

There was considerable interesting material, to us 'Attwaters,' in the 
original 'Petitions,' 'Briefs,' and 'Statements of Alleged Facts.' We wish that 
space allowed us to reprint them all in Volume 5. However, our briefs may 
be of interest to show how successfully hijacking on the seas was carried 
on in 1800. 

These covered cases and claims involving the Schooner NEUTRALITY — 
value $3,600. Owners — Thomas Attwater, Ebenezer Peck, Elias Shipman. 
Austin Denison and Elnathan Attwater. Built at Kingston, Mass., 1793. but 
registered at New Haven. Oct. 1st, 1798, 89 11/95 tons. With cargo valued 
at $7,272. 

'The brig HULKER,' a duly registered vessel of the United States, Peter 
Clark, Master, of 114; Brig, rigged; valued at $5,700; with cargo $8,980. 
Owners, Thomas Attwater, Frederick, John and Jess Hunt, and Richard 
Cutter. 

The 'CERES.' a registered vessel of the United States of 52 tons, valued 
with cargo at $8,800. Owners— Thomas Attwater, Elnathan Attwater and 
Amos White. Master. 

Possibly the most interesting items disclosed in all these claims, which 
necessitated over one hundred years of legal effort, are in the manifests of 
cargo; to wit: 

3400 ft. of lumber @ $16.00 per M... $ 54.40 

10 sheep and swine (xil $2.00 each 20.00 

27 hhds. corn meal, inc. hhds 594.00

And at last their prayers were answered: 

It was in the month of June, 
An hour before sunset 

Of a windy afternoon. 

When, steadily steering landward. 

A ship was seen below. 
And they knew it was Lamberton. Master, 

Who sailed so long ago. 

On she came, with a cloud of canvas. 

Right against the wind that blew. 
Until the eye could distinguish 

The faces of the crew. 

Then fell her straining topmasts. 

Hanging tangled in the shrouds, 
And her sails were loosened and lifted, 

And blown away like clouds. 

And the masts, with all their rigging, 

Fell slowly, one by one. 
And the hulk dilated and vanished, 

As a sea-mist in the sun! 

And the people who saw this marvel 

Each said unto his friend, 
That this was the mould of their vessel. 

And thus her tragic end. 

And the pastor of the village 

Gave thanks to God in prayer. 
That, to quiet their troubled spirits. 

He had sent this Ship of Air. 

In the 'Preface' of Cotton Mather's 'Magnalia Christi Americana— or 
the Ecclesiastical History of New England,' first published in London in 
1702, it states: 

'The great object of the first Planters of New England was to form 
A CHRISTIAN COMMONWEALTH.' This littera^ humaniores was quill- 
driven so near to the period of New Haven settlement days, that the following 
citations should be of interest to all our family members: 

's.5. But there was one thing that made this colony (New Haven I very 
considerable: which thing remains now to be considered. The well-known 
Mr Davenport and Mr. Eaton, and several eminent persons that came over 
to the Massachuset-bay among some of the first planters, were strongh urged, 
that they would have settled in this Bay: but hearing of another Bay to the 
southwest of Connecticut, which might be more capable to entertain those 
that were to follow them, they desired their friends at Connecticut would 
purchase of the native proprietors for them, all the land that lay between 
themselves and Hudson's River, which was in part effected. 

Accordingly removing thither in the year 1637, they seated themselves 
in a pleasant Bay. where they spread themselves along' the sea-coast, and

her sails filled under a fresh gale, holding her course north, and continuing 
under observation, sailing against the wind for the space of an hour 

Many were drawn to behold this great work of God: yea. the very 
children cryed out, 'There's a brave ship!' ' ^ 

At length, crowding up as far as there is usually water sufficient for 
such a vessel, and so near some of the spectators, as they imagined a man 
might hurl a stone on board her, her main-top seemed to 'be blown off. bu 
eft hanging m the shrouds; then her mizzen-top; then all her masting 
seemed blown away by the board: quickly after the hulk brought into a 
careen she overset, and so vanished into a smoaky cloud, which in some 
time dissipated, leaving, as everywhere else, a clear air 

The admiring spectators could distinguish the several colours of each 
part, the principal rigging, and such proportions, as caused not only the 
generality of persons to say: This was the mould of their ship and thus 
was her tragick end. ' 

But Mr. Davenport, also in public, declared to this effect: That God 
had condescended, for the quieting of their afflicted spirits, this extraordinary 
account of his sovereign disposal of those whom so many fervent prayers 
were made continually.' ^ prayers

•Reader, there being yet living so many credible gentlemen, that were 
eye witnesses of this wonderful thing. I venture to publish it for a thing as 
undoubted as 'tis wonderful. ^ 

But let us now proceed with our story. Our christians of New-Haven 
apprehended themselves disadvantageously seated for the affairs of husbandry 
and therefore upon these disasters they made attempts of removing into 
some other parts of the world.' ^ 

I Editor's note: There is no basis in our family or other records to 
confirm this statement. While it is taken for granted that some dissatisfied 
or venturous persons would leave for other parts of the new World— the 
main body, including David, continued, during numerous generations, with 
the upbuilding of New Haven. Jonathan's will also denies the disaster clause 
showing that successful trading in and fro.n the Colony, could be accom- 
plished even in the second generation.) 

'One while they were invited into Delaware-bay, another while they were 
invited to Jamaica: offers made them from Ireland also, after the wars there 
were over; and they entered into some treaties about the City of Galloway 
which they were to have had as a small province to themselve"s. 

'But God of Heaven still strangely disappointed all these attempts- and 
vvhereas they were concerned how their posterity should be able to live if 
they must make husbandry their main shift for' their living: that posterity 
of theirs by the good province of God. instead of coming to begirv and 
misery, having thriven wonderfully: the colony is improved \wth many 
wealthy husbandmen, and is to become no small part of the best granary 
tor all i\ew-Lngland. ^ 

'And same good Providence has all along so preserved them from 
annoyance by the Indians, that although at their first setting down there were 
lew towns I this also appears to be in error, as there were no other towns in

of Upson county; he has given liberally to equip the new James R. Atwater 
school. He gave money for erecting the Vocational Agriculture Building, and 
he makes regular grants to the FFA chapter to assist members in their 
training program. 



The Future Farmers of America is a national organization of farm boys 
who are studving vocational agriculture in the public schools. Started in 
1928. it has grown to a membership of 385.000 prospective young farmers. 
The primary objective of FFA is to help and encourage its members 
to prepare for careers in farming. It also trains for leadership, citizenship, 
scholarship, cooperation, thrift and patriotism. The Future Farmers motto is: 

"Learning to do. 

Doing to learn; 

Earning to live. 

Living to serve." 



In the make-up of Volume Five, only one long article was taken from 
the fourth Atwater History. This concerned Captain Atwater. However, it 
did not include his many gifts for the advancement of educational facilities 
and objectives. 

During his entire life he has had a keen interest in education of the 
youth of his community. For many years he served as member and chairman 
of the Board of Trustees of R. E. Lee Institute, as did his father before him.

On February 14, 1917, he married Anne Elizabeth Walton, daughter of 
Peter W. and Susan Reid Walton, of Madison, Georgia. His wife comes from 
a family distinguished for generations, and is a direct descendant of George 
Walton, a signer cf the Declaration of Independence. They have cne daugh- 
ter. Richmond Wakon. born August 24, 1921. Recently, he and his wife, 
in memory cf her parents, have given to the North Georgia Methodist 
Conference a new home in Madison, Georgia, for the use cf retired Methodist 
ministers. 

Captain Atwater is past master of the local ledge of the Woodmen of 
the World. He served as mayor of Thomaston for 12 years and is a former 
state senator. He has lived the tradition of his father and grandfather and is 
fortunate in now being able to iiistill their tradition of life in his grandsons. 

When Captain Atwater first heard of our project for a new Atwater 
History, his willingness to co-cperate was immediately forthcoming. He not 
only brought his own branch data up-to-date quickly, but sent representatives, 
at his own expense, far and afield, to secure collaboration from other members 
of the Clan. It is evident that when Captain Atwater gives himself to a 
project, he does not falter by the wayside because the path is long and filled 
with unexpected obstacles. 

The following clipping from 'The Free Press' July 26, 1955, also shows 
his desire to continually support those objectives worthv of expansion. 

"A recent $8400 gift of land to the James R. Atwater School has been 
made public by the principal. E. W. Foy. 

Captain James R. Atwater, who has made several other contributions to 
the school in the Atwater ccmmunity. recently presented the school with 28 
acres of land adjoining the present property. The gift was valued at S8400. 

"In completing the seventh vear of operation the James R. Atwater 
School is happy to announce expansion in many lines," Mr. Foy said. '"A 
recent gift of land suggests the progress for which the schocl's friends are 
constantly planning. 

"Foreseeing larger enrollment, more buildings and widening activities. 
Captain James R. Atwater some weeks ago presented the school 28 acres of 
land. This includes some welcome shade trees. Our students have already 
been fortunate in having large space as compared with those in many places." 
Mr. Foy pointed out continuing, "the addition represents an expenditure of 
around $8400 and is greatly appreciated." 

Mr. Foy also discussed that "as evidence of Captain Atwater's interest 
in the students as individuals was his gift of a five dollar bill attached to 
the diplomas of all fortv-three ninth grade graduates." 



The Clan salutes a Southern gentleman who is a worthv descendant of 
our hardy ancestors.

famous Chicago Athletic Association. He often reminisced of the friendships 
formed there with other young men who were on their way to fame in various 
fields of endeavor. Among the best known were the distinguished Hoosier 
writer, George Ade, and John T. McCutcheon, the renowned political 
cartoonist. 

Mr. Atwater and Miss Cox were married on April 25, 1900, and made 
their first home in Chicago. 

An important step in Mr. Atwater's business career came when he 
entered the chewing gum manufacturing business, embarking upon an asso- 
ciation that was to continue for nearly half a century. The Wm. Wrigley Jr. 
Company of Chicago was on the threshold of expansion from a small, strug- 
gling business into a world-famous organization, and in 1907, Mr. Atwater 
was appointed by the late William Wrigley Jr. to head the sales activities of 
the company in the Eastern territory as manager of the New York office. 
Working closely with Mr. Wrigley, he was prominently identified with the 
sales program that led to the successful introduction of Wrigley's Spearmint 
chewing gum in the East. 

For the next twenty-five years, Mr. Atwater's business and social life 
centered in the East, and he and Mrs. Atwater established a home for their 
growing family in Garden City, on Long Island. Garden City was then in 
its infancy as a residential suburb of New York City, and Mr. Atwater took 
an active interest in civic affairs and in encouraging the growth and develop- 
ment of the newer section of the community. He was prominent in the 
activities of the Episcopal Church, and was a Mason for many years, affiliated 
with Nassau Commandery No. 73, of Garden City. 

A noteworthy event in Mr. Atwater's business career occurred in 1916, 
when he was elected second vice-president of the Wrigley Company. A year 
later, he was elected to the board of directors of the corporation. In 1920 
he was elected to the position of vice-president. During these years he 
continued to head the company's sales activities in the Eastern part of the 
United States, developing distribution outlets for the fast-growing Wrigley 
business. In addition to his activities in the sales end of the business he was 
instrumental in establishing an Eastern factory for the company in Brooklyn. 
He traveled extensively in Central and South America, establishing sales 
agencies for the handling of Wrigley products in those countries. He also 
traveled to Europe on inspection trips for the Wrigley Company. He was an 
early enthusiast for air transportation in his wide-ranging travels, and made 
one of the first trips on a commercial air line in South America in 1927. 

During his years in the East, Mr. Atwater served on the directorates 
of two banking institutions. Dime Savings Bank, of Brooklyn, and Hudson 
Trust Company (now Empire Trust Company) of New York City. He was 
a member of the Metropolitan and Lotos clubs of New York. 

In 1932, following the death of William Wrigley Jr., at that time 
chairman of the board of the company, Mr. Atwater transferred from New

Francis Atwater of New Haven 

(No. 1705) 

Francis, son of Henry, describes himself in the fourth volume of Atwater 
History and Genealogy as "author, publisher, printer, organizer street 
railroads, press associations, member of American Publisher's Association, 
National Typothetae, publisher of the first all-American daily newspaper in 
Cuba, author of history of Plymouth, Connecticut, and compiler of the 
volumes of Atwater History." 

Francis was born Dec. 3, 1858 in Plymouth, Conn, and died in New 
Haven on Nov. 25, 1935. In 1879 he married Helena J. Sellow. They had 
one son, Dorence Keith Atwater, born May 10, 1880. Dorence lost his life 
by drowning at Kennebunkport, Me., Aug. 23. 1900 when he was but twenty. 

Francis was a versatile person and he lived an interesting life. His 
record in Who's Who in America mentions his life and interests in Plymouth, 
Southington. Meriden. Wallingford. Hartford, New Britain. New Haven, 
East Hampton, Torrington, and Kent, all in Connecticut, in Red Bluff, 
California and Havana, Cuba. He was a printer and publisher primarily, 
but he was involved in at least two street railway companies and was connected 
officially with at least seven banks, all in Connecticut. He was a member in 
1906 of the Connecticut State Senate and was a member of the Executive 
Committee of the American National Red Cross. In 1912 he was a founder 
and president of the Clara Barton Memorial Association. 

His publications included the histories of Plymouth and Kent. Conn., 
1896; four volumes of Atwater History and Genealogy. (1901, 1906, 1919, 
and 1927). He published the Meriden Centennial Proceedings in 1907, his 
Personal Memoirs in 1924 and the History of Southington in 1925. 

Members of the Atwater clan can be grateful for Francis' vocation as 
well as for his avocation. He had a persistent interest in the records of the 
family and his contributions extending over at least twenty-five years took 
full advantage of the earlier researches and publications of Rev. Edward E. 
Atwater (1816-1887) and Robert Henry Atwater (1834-1889) who had 
made excellent studies of the family in the United States and of the origins 
in England. It required time and effort and money to do what Francis did

the old papers mother has, are several contracts he wrote out. then they would 
make their X mark and grandpa signed their name in the presence of two 
other men who could write which would make it legal. There was no court 
house here at Havana, no Mason county. This part of the country was in 
Fulton county. There was no bridge across the Illinois River, therefore 
it was a hazardous trip through the bottoms to Lewistown to transact legal 
business. 

I have heard grandma tell, they raised the sheep, she helped shear the 
wool, take it to the woolen mills in Fulton county herself and have it 
carded. Then she spun the yarn, knit all the socks and stockings for the 
family. She spun the thread for weaving the cloth, dyed the cloth for the 
outer garments, using walnut hulls for dye. and set the color, using chamber 
lye so it would not fade.

54 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

An Unusual Occupation 

My son, Montgomery Meigs Atwater, is an "avalanche-buster" for the 
U.S. Forest Service. He makes his headquarters at Alta, Utah, the famous 
ski-resort near Salt Lake City, Utah. At first he was not only on avanche- 
buster but the avalanche-buster. Now there are others — most of them snow- 
rangers who have attended the avalanche school held everv vear at Alta. 




Avalanches have always been one of the major hazards of the world's 
high places, and for many years snow-studies have been carried on in Switz- 
erland and in Austria in the hope of learning to predict these violences of 
Nature, and to find some method of controlling them. But in the United 
States, 'til 1948 when the Alta project was set up, nothing of the kind was 
attempted. Avalanches appear to have been regarded as "acts of God," like

56 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

the site of an abandoned silver mine of the old days and during the time 
of the mining activity many men were caught and killed by the avalanches. 
That the modern methods of snow control are effective is proved by the fact 
that since 1948 when the snow station was set up at Alta there has not been 
a single fatality there, though thousands of skiiers are on the slopes every 
fine week-end during the winter. 

My son's activities are not confined to Alta. He inspects ski projects all 
through the western mountains and plans safety measures and recommends 
safety procedure. He is called on in snow emergencies — as when last winter 
an army plane crashed near the top of one of the highest and most rugged 
peaks of the Wasatch Range. The accident happened at the height of the 
avalanche season and the region is one of the most inaccessible in Utah. 
Monty Atwater was detailed to lead the rescue party and to find as safe a 
route as possible up the mountain. It was an affair of four very anxious 
days. When the rescuers reached the wreck they found all the men aboard 
the plane dead, but they were able to retrieve some important government 
papers, and all the party got down again alive and uninjured. 

When the first coast-to-coast television set-up was being made — under 
pressure, so that the country might view the Peace Congress in San Francisco 
— the construction of a vital relay station on top of a mountain in Nevada 
was halted when avalanches swept the only road over which supplies had to 
be taken to the site. My son was called upon lor help in the emergency. There 
proved to be no possible way to make the road practicable. In fact the only 
safe route lay straight up the mountain along a narrow ridge — too narrow 
and too steep for a road — with the avalanches running harmlessly down either 
side. A crane was set up and the supplies were hauled up over this narrow 
trail on sledges and the day was saved. As a result a great many people 
enjoyed a memorable experience that they owed — though they did not know 
it — to the knowledge and ingenuity of the avalanche-buster. 

Avalanche-busting is an exciting and strenuous job — and not without its 
hazards — but those who travel the mountain highways in winter, and those 
who take their sport on the snow-slopes, owe their safety and perhaps their 
lives, to the man with the unusual occupation.

HOLLYWOOD. Calif.. March 4. 1949 — A. Atwater Kent, inventor, 
industrialist and philanthropist, died this morning. He was 75 years old. 

Mr. Kent's marriage to Mabel Lucas, which took place in 1906, ended 
in divorce. 

Byword to Early Motorists 

After pioneering in the automobile and radio fields. Arthur Atwater 
Kent retired a wealthy man. His name was a byword with early motorists, 
particularly in connection with his ignition, starting and lighting system. In 
the Twenties and Thirties. Atwater Kent and radio were closely linked. 

The first Atwater Kent radio set. a five-tube affair, was put out in 1923. 
Three years later the millionth set was turned out. 

He introduced many musical celebrities to radio broadcasting, engaging 
for the Sunday night Atwater Kent hour over a network of stations the 
highest priced grand opera and concert performers. He created the Atwater 
Kent Foundation to conduct nation-wide auditions to discover unknown 
talent. The winners received liberal money prizes and courses of study in the 
leading musical schools. 

Born in Burlington, Vt., he was the son of the late Dr. and Mrs. Prentiss 
J. Kent. (Editor's Note: Elizabeth M. daughter of Ambrose Atwater. I 

He entered the automotive industry by designing a pocket-size electric 
meter to test dry-cell batteries then used in automobile ignitions. In 1902 he 
established the Atwater Kent Manufacturing Works in Philadelphia in make 
telephones and small voltmeters. 

Designed Ignition System 

Three years later he began making his revolutionary ignition system 
which made a single quick hot spark instead of the ordinary stream of sparks. 
It was used in a dozen makes of automobiles. 

Mr. Kent converted his plant to war manufacture during the first World 
War. After the war he continued manufacturing ignitions and starting and

The Calorimeter 

Today there are several million people who know the Calory by its first 
name. In thousands of homes the housekeeper has been trained through her 
favorite magazine — whether Ladies' Home Journal. Good Housekeeping, 
Modern Priscilla. or The Farmers Wife — to measure food value by calories 
rather than price. 

In the early 70 s a man only a few years out of Wesleyan returned 
from studying two years in German universities to become professor of 
chemistry at the college where less than a decade before he had been 
graduated. Abroad lie had become actively interested in the then new science 
of agricultural chemistry. This subject he began to follow by researches in 
the chemical laboratorv at Wesleyan. 

To those not familiar with Wesleyan it may seem somewhat unusual 
that a "college for culture" should lend its facilities for experimental work 
in agricultural chemistry, but a knowledge of the history of Wesleyan shows 
innumerable instances of equal liberal-mindedness on the part of its trustees. 
One of Prefessor Atwater's chief associates, later on Professor F. G. 
Benedict, for some years now director of the nutrition laboratory of the 
Carnegie Institution, commenting on the atmosphere of Wesleyan, has said, 
"Whatever measure of success has accompanied my efforts, I feel certain 
that a large share of this was due to the active spirit of scientific research 
and encouragement to young men which is prevalent at Wesleyan." 



A'nVATER GEINEIALOGY 61 

Professor Atwaters early w< :• agricultural cheniistnk" developed 

from the cheniistrv of the growing piant to the chemistry of the soil and 
fertilizers, to the feeding of domestic animals, and ultimately to the feeding 
of man. which was his last and all-absorbing interest. 

W here\er there has been research of as high an order as Professsor 
Atwater and his associates undertook, adequate conditions almost invariably 
surrounded the work. It js hardly possible to conceive work of such magnitude 
as developed through Professor Atwater's work at W-e^leyan being conducted 
with the facilities at his disposal, but with what he had Professor Atwater 
laid the foundation upon which has been built two super-structures which 
will last for many decades, if not forever. 

Single-handed, he worked out a svstem of investigation in asricultural 
chemistrv and subsequentlv in the nutrition of man that, taken up by the 
government, formed the basis of the establishment of the broad series of 
agricultural experiment stations that now exist. In 1873. with a grant of 
sl.(^(KI from one Weslevan's Alumni, and permission from the Trustees to use 
the laboratorv. the first agricultural experiment station in the I nited States 
was established, and Professor Atwater was made the director. 

As the movement spread rapidlv there was soon needed a central clearing 
house for the scientific work of the stations. This work coming logically under 
the head of the Department of Agriculture. Professor Atwater was chosen 
b\ this department as the first Director of its experiment stations. 

Soon after this, from the study of animal feeding. Professor Atwater 

was directing his energies to chemical and statistical researches on the fo«>d 

and nutrition of man. He had early realized the importance of a sixial and 

economic study of the relations of food and diet to the labor. jH>wer. health 

and moral tone of communities, and it was from this scientific studies »>f 

dietaries, begun in a small wav. that the investigation develoi>ed into a large 

investigation of the dietetic conditi<in obtaining in \arious parts of the country. 

Through the work of this college professor, working with in«Teasine 

ei|uipinent. special appropriations were secured frt>m Congress to stud\ the 

nutrition of man. and the whole enterprise soon InHauje an extensi\e 

co-operative slud\ of food and diet extending lileralK from coast to roast. 

\^ hile Professor Atwater's work in these directions had atlracltnl much 

attention from phvsit>U»gists and economists, the \enture that phu^il him in 

the foreino<;t rank of the abstract scientists as such was his effort to 

denionstrate the fundamental law-^ in nutrition, and thus platv U|>on a 

scientific basis what lia.l liillirrto lu-cn Knpiricisn) in liietetics. For thi> 

purpose he succeeded in interesting the government and indiNiduals. as well 

as other institutions, in raising a large sum of nione\ for the c«>nstruction 

of a respiration calorimeter, without the remotest e\|HMtalion ..f Mvuring 

results of inunediate practical \alue. The whole enterprix- was IkwhI uim.u the 

higher plane of abstract st ieiilific research- a !*earch for truth. 



62 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

The work done with the respiration calorimeter attracted early attention 
from many scientific authorities. A number of grants at various times were 
made by the Carnegie Institution at Washington. All this money was devoted 
to abstract scientific research with the respiration calorimeter devised and 
constructed in the basement of Judd Hall, the chemical laboratory at Wesleyan 
University. The work done here was so important that the Carnegie Institution 
carried it on from here to a building specially designed for the purpose, 
located in a larger city near medical schools and hospitals. 

The present laboratory is the admiration of all foreign physiologists as 
well as American, but as the director has said, this building would not exist 
had it not been for the encouragement of the Board of Trustees of Wesleyan 
University and the energy of Professor Atwater in founding this fundamental 
research with the respiration calorimeter. 

At this point it might be interesting to quote from a Wesleyan University 
Bulletin, No. 18, dated May, 1896, a paragraph about a Respiration Calori- 
meter's work, with its particularly modest and significant last sentence: 

"Research upon nutrition has reached the point where the study of the 
application of the laws of the conservation of matter and of energy in the 
living organism are essential. This is to say, we must be able to determine 
the balance of income and outgo of the body, and this balance must be 
expressed in terms, both of matter and of energy. For this purpose a 
respiration calorimeter is being elaborated here. This is an apparatus in 
which an animal or a man may be placed for a number of hours or days, 
and the amounts and composition of the excreta, solid, liquid and gaseous; 
the ])otential energy of the materials taken into the body and given off from 
it; the quantity of heat radiated from the body: and the heat equivalent of the 
muscular work done, are all to be measured. 

"During the past two years the enterprise has had the support of the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture which had made this inquiry a part of its 
food investigations. As is often the case in such inquiries it has been thought 
wise to say very little until definite results should be ready for publication.^' 

Comment or philosophizing on the work of the man who did so much 
for human welfare is unnecessary. Quoting from another Wesleyan University 
Bulletin of December. 1907, here is an account of his life in one paragraph: 

"Wilbur Olin Atwater was born in Johnsburg. Warren county, New 
York, on May 3, 1844, but much of his early life was spent in Vermont. After 
three years at the University of Vermont, he entered Wesleyan University 
as a senior and was graduated with the degree of bachelor of arts in 1865. 
He served in successive years as principal of schools in Colchester. Vermont; 
Spencer, Massachusetts; and Westport, New York. After a year as a student 
in the Sheffield Scientific School, Yale University, he received the degree 
of doctor of philosophy in 1869. and then spent two years in foreign travel 
and study, paying special attention to agricultural chemistry. In 1873 he 
was elected instructor in chemistry in Wesleyan University, and in the

the sixth oldest Ford dealers in the two Carolinas and the 146th oldest 
dealer in the LInited States. 

He was a native of Orange County, son of John Fletcher and Mrs. Julia 
Bynuni Atwater. He was a resident of Burlington for more than 55 years 
of his life. 

When the automobile industry started moving nation-wide, however. Mr. 
Atwater began studying the field and, in turn, founded his own organization, 
the Burlington Auto Company, that has remained in the family since that time. 

Mr. Atwater was a member of the Front Street Church and was one of 
the first teachers of its Baraca Class. Dr. W. L. Clegg, pastor of the church, 
officiated. 

Survivors include his wife. Mrs. Manie Garrison Atwater. of the home: 
two daughters, Mrs. C. H. Keels of McColl. S. C, and Mrs. Joe Pell. Jr.. of 
Pilot Mountain; four sons. J. Wilson and Robert N. Atwater, both of Burling- 
ton; Luther E., Jr., of Columbia. S. C. and Dr. Frank G. Atwater of Greens- 
boro; one sister. Mrs. W. A. Maynard. Sr., of Burlington; 11 grandchildren 
and one great grandchild. 

Robert N. Atwater founds new authorized Ford dealer for Burlington, 
N. C. Atwater Motor Company. 

The new automobile dealership has Mr. and Mrs. Luther E. Atwater. Jr., 
of Columbia, S. C, as president and vice-president, and Mrs. Robert N. 
Atwater as vice-president. Robert N. Atwater, the only officer who will be 
active in the operation of the company, will serve as secretary-treasurer and

My grandfather. John Wesley Atwater, was a local preacher in the 
Methodist Church. He had a large farm so served several poor churches 
around him for twenty-five years but charged them no salary for his services. 
He told me just before he died that he had never failed to have a sermon 
ready when called upon. He and his wife went one Sunday morning to visit 
a married daughter in an adjoining county. On the way he was impressed 
with the need to prepare a sermon. He asked his wife to drive the horse while 
he got out his Bible and prepared his text, not knowing when nor where he 
would preach from it. When he reached his daughter's home they were ready 
to go to church. He said he had always wanted to hear the pastor of their 
church, so while grandmother and Aunt Delia stayed at home to prepare 
dinner, he went to church with Uncle Will. 

He was a tall, slender man and he sat down in the back of the church 
hoping the preacher would not see him. But the preacher saw him anyway 
and soon after the service began, asked him to come up into the pulpit and 
preach. Grandfather knew then that was why God had told him to prepare 
his sermon. 

Of his nine children, only the youngest son. John Patterson Atwater 
(No. 2992). Thomaston. Ga.. is living. He is an old bachelor 80 years old. 
I am the oldest living grandchild of John Wesley Atwater. I am 71 years 
of age. 

I remember my great-grandfather. Edmund Browder Atwater. quite 
well. Georgia was just being settled when he moved there from North Carolina 
and settled in I pson Co.. Ga. He built a log cabin with one room. For furni- 
ture he bored an auger hole in a log at one end another on the side of the 
house and inserted the end of a pole in each. He cut a post leaving two 
crotches where limbs were cut off and drove it into the dirt floor of the cabin 
and laid the other ends of his poles in the crotches to make the frame of 
his bed. The slats were poles nicely skinned of bark with one end stuck 
between logs in the wall and the other laid on the pole making the side railing 
of the bed. On these he laid his straw-filled mattress. His table and chairs 
were blocks sawed from trees with legs fitted into auger holes. Of course, 
they cooked on the fireplace. 

He acquired a good bit of land and after many years, was a man of 
wealth. There were no banks except in large towns so he loaned his money 
and was called a banker. 

He was a grand old man. loved by everybody, and was a good christian. 
One day at his church the members had been telling of God's goodness and 
all were feeling good and happy. As they got up from their knees after a 
prayer one of the men started singing "not a foot of land do I posses, no 
cottage in the wilderness." Grandfather began fishing in his pockets and 
hurried across the church and thrust a paper into the man's hand. "Here, 
brother, here take this. You have got some land." 

It seems that the man had mortgaged his home to grandfather for some 
money and was failing to make payment. Grandfather felt so happy over 
God's goodness to him that he gave the man his mortgage. 

With best wishes, 

— Mrs. Addie May Fox Malone

ATWATER GENEALOGY 




Lenham, Kent, 1953 

By Richard Atwater Wolcott ( 2059 1 

While stationed in England with the U.S. Air Force in 1953, 1 had the 
opportunity of visiting Lenham and seeing for myself the vicinity described 
in Vol. 5 of the Atwater Genealogy. 

With due credit given to the Air Force for providing my trip to England. 
the inspiration for my visit to Lenham came from my Aunt, Mrs. Edgar F. 
Atwater. ( 1 1 It was she who familiarized me u ith the Atwater Genealogy, 
displaying her keen interesl and background on the subject. 

Lpon receiving passes on the first of May. Corporal Duane Curry, an 
Air Force friend, and I set out for Lenham. After leaving our base at Lahen- 
heath near Newmarket, a prominent racing center, we went first to London, 
and changed trains for the several hour ride to Lenham. It was a pleasant 
day and we enjoyed the sights of the green rolling country — its many farms, 
orchards and connnunities.

ATWATER GENEALOGY 




Upon leaving the church, we hired a taxi and drove over the rolling 
fields to Royton Manor, now known as Chapel Farm because a chapel is 
situated on the premises. 

The owner invited us to look around the place, but failed to offer his 
entire house for our observations. The house is situated on a hill and at the 
foot of the hill is a little stream which is the source of the River Stour. The 
farm was actively cultivated with several large fields of wheat. The house is 
large, two storied stone, solidly built and in good condition. While inside 
we marvelled at its sturdy construction with its large wooden beams forming 
the superstructure. One of the rooms that the owner showed us, presumably 
the game room, was decorated with elaborate woodcarvings. We learned 
that at one time there was more carved woodwork, but previous owners 
had removed some. 

Since we didn't want to impose on the owner's hospitality, we were 
satisfied to look around the outside and to take pictures. 

After thanking him for the visit, we returned to the Rector's house and 
brought our visit to a close since it was almost time for the train. Thanking 
Miss Strickland for her time and effort, we said goodbye and bade farewell 
to Lenham and a very pleasant afternoon. 

(1) Helen M. Edick. wife of Edgar Foote Atwater. 



(Editor's Note: For another visit to Lenham, Kent, see Vol. 4, p. 25. The 
most interesting item of Margaret Ativater Jones' story refers to the old 
records which he (the vicar) kept at the vicarage and showed me the inscrip- 
tions of births, baptisjns, marriages, and deaths (of Attwaters) . On the first 
page of one book ivas the record of the baptism of Robert Attwater in 1588.)

72 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

With the first word, the first being initiated a human miracle, as 
the last to gasp out the last word, will pronounce the human debacle, for the 
word is badge of all humanhood ... its symbol of creative power — like God; 

So. dearly Beloved, worship words; and trust, dying among them, 
to merge at last with the Final Word: — that Word, immortal, everlasting. . . . 

Eternity ! 



Woman Power 



Blood, milk and tears", these liquid three — components of a chemistry 
Scourging the body physical, distil the essence spiritual ... of Woman: 



Crimson ooze, distressing the child; red bruize of maidenhood . . . exiled; 
Scarlet toll extorted by birth : blood pays all costs which yield her worth 

to Woman; 

Impatient stream whose gush attests the eagerness of yearning breasts . . . 
And bowels to bowels again ties them: the childflower to its parent stem . . . 

to Woman : 

Those taut exasperated nerves, whose sheer excess her function serves . . . 
Tears ease their tension, still the stress: even spill the flooding happiness 

of Woman ; 

In the strength of centered purposiveness. Jesus, the Man. in his distress 
Showed that same force invincible: the great Creative Principle 

of Woman; 



Man of tiie gaping wound. l)leeding. torn; whom milk of mercy left forlorn; 
Whose tears met hers when "Jesus wept." what was thy God's divine concept 

of Woman? 

Was it that she. destined to be slave of her own biology . . . 
Should live to see the final doom of the human fruit of the bleeding womb 

of Woman? 



0, cruicified "Fool." forgotten Prince ... of Peace, our world's sad failure 

hints: 
Perchance Man's bloody Brotherhood awaits a bleeding Sisterhood 

of Woman ! 

^Acknowledgment to Isadora Duncan, in whose Autobiography. "My Life." 
published in 1927, these words occur in different order. Describing the birth 
of a child in Paris during the German seige of World War I, she writes: "As 
I lay there, torn and helpless, a triple stream of tears and milk and blood 
poured from me."

The 
Human Tree 



A man ... a woman, 
hewn from the selfsame Tree; 



The taller — his head always straining higher, 
he places his trust in reasoned Thought; 

Broader of reach — her heart ever beating faster, 
she pins her faith to intuitive Understanding; 



His feet are rooted in soil; the earth must support him; 
She joins him at their core; his strength must sustain her — 
He. trunk of the human tree; she, branch, bearing flower and fruit; 
His. the vertical expression — part of earth itself, upward-striving; 
Hers, a horizontal influence — at one with creation, all embracing; 



Cross-beams of an ancient crux-symbol of sex, of love and of sacrifice, 
both merge toward a center of being — in union, neither male nor female; 
yet diverge into separate entities — in division, a man and a woman; 
Without her, only a sterile stump, man is stripped of all actual significance; 
Without him. merely a barren log. woman is divested of any real meaning; 



Eons back in eternity, the Tree was hewn . . . 

Eons forward in eternity. Science may heal the wound 

and these "twain" reunite within the Original Tree. . . 



Meanwhile, a man and a woman — 
halves of an integral Whole, 
demand completion — each, in its counterpart; 
Biunial spirit seeks Unity 
in humanhood!

You feel it, when 
your train roars through some city and a drab review of shanties, shacks and 
shops rush by . . . then, its forefinger pointing high, a spire dominates the 
sky with magnet-power which instantly transports your spirit from the dull 
and ugly, to the beautiful . . . 

and feel it. then; 

You sense it. when 
the eye perceives beneath fret-lace of locust leaves, supple, sun-lit interstices, 
wherein beguiling traceries carve on the copper of the sky, mazes whose 
lovely filigree ensnares your spirit in a spell of what seems certain miracle . . . 

and sense it, then ; 

You know it. when 
pausing before some old cathedral, to adore those martyrs, prophets. Saints- 
in-God, whose pious faiths patiently plod a frieze across its stone facade, 
you meet an all-compelling prod of spirit into empathy with their austere 
concepts of duty . . . 

and know it, then; 

This surging reach toward some far goal, this sudden sally of the soul, 
this blending of identity with these rare aspects of beauty, revealed at times 
exquisitely in Art, Nature and Humanity . . . insights, none may buy or 
sell . . . vistas of Truth, invaluable! 



Sappho 

In deep reflection, freed from sex-coercion. 

By preference, chaste — a sentient. Grecian 

One wooed silence, where mind and Muse might heart it; 

Priestess of Beauty 

Whose genius was Spirit; 

The other, a wanton, whose unleashed desires 
Goaded her flesh until sensual shoddy 
Flaring in lusts of elementary fires 

Blazed to Lesbian 

Beguilements of body; 

Sharing one temple — a vestal, a harlot; 
As pagan, as poet, playing the same lyre; 
Robed now, in tortured restlessness of scarlet, 

Then, clad in quiet 

Whiteness of calmed attire,

78 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

COMMENTARY AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 

How is your I.Q. on the history of your ancestors? Would you receive 
a plus or a minus, in an examination covering this most interesting subject — 
especially to a descendant of David Attwater? 

Since I undertook this "labor of love" — despite adverse predictions by 
family members — many erroneous stories have been called to my attention. 
Naturally, the ones concerning the "strange" spelling of my own name in- 
trigued me more than all others. With over one hundred inquiries, about 
the double "t." answers were necessary. But the explanatory Christmas cards 
of 1954 did not stop the inquiries. 

One reasonable story — even if inaccurate as to most of us double t's — 
claimed the change in spelling was incited thru Revolutionary feuds in '76. 
The Patriot took one spelling — the Tory the other. A similar tale had the 
King giving a grant of land in New Haven to one of our family members, 
during the war, who. of course, was a Tory and with the same ending. 
Undoubtedly, there were members of our family on the wrong side — accord- 
ing to how one viewed the conflict. 

If many of the curious who wrote me had ever read an Atwater 
Genealogy, they could have answered their own queries. Members who 
doubted my New Haven ancestry because of spelling and present California 
residence, should realize that David's descendants now reside in every state 
in the Union. Of course, my father. Samuel Hobart. and my grandfather, 
Elisha, were both born in New Haven, Conn. I was less fortunate — being 
born in New York City. 

All members and especially those bearing the name Atwater, will be 
interested in knowing that during our long and tedious search for family 
members, in the United States and Canada, we found only two families 
bearing the name of Atwater, who disclaimed David as their ancestor. The 
following letter explains one case: 

"My Dear Mr. Attwater: My husband was not of the 'David Atwater 
Family in America.' He was born in Tairstock. Devon. England, on 13 May 
1888 and died in 'Chicago' on 14 January 1949. He came to America, with 
'Sir Johnson Forbes Robertson' in 1913, as company manager. On our fre- 
quent tours, we often met people by the name of 'Atwater.' but you are the 
first, — that used the 'Attwater.' The latter is used in England and the extra 
T, must have been dropped along the way in America. 

Sincerely, Florence Baird Attwater." 



'The pedigree of honey 

Does not concern the bee; 
A clover, anytime, to him, 

Is aristocracy."

80 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

When Lowell Thomas sent me a note about "Monty." I immediately 
wrote Mary Meigs Atwater. his mother. The picture and her interesting article 
will be found in the Historical Section. 

Jane Atwater Pratt is justly proud of the unusual long career of her 
renowned grandfather. 

Richard Atwater Wolcott, our youngest contributor, did his stint in the 
U.S. Air Force. 

Hubert F. Atwater was not only close to Francis but also had the 
distinction of personal contact with Clara Barton. 

In addition to those mentioned above, the author wishes to thank all 
members sending in extra genealogical material. Special mention should 
include Capt. James R. Atwater. Cleo Atwater Crowl. James Bassett Atwater, 
Ruth Atwater Sonderegger. June Franklin. De Witt H. Fessenden, Henry L. 
Atwater. Nancy Atwater English, Mrs. Harry Atwater and Mrs. Helen Wind, 
who has since passed away. 



In the volume Francis incorrectly called Volume 1. Edward Elias also 
contributed a great portion of the new history and genealogical material. And

(Editor's Note: As a young man, Elisha. my grandfather, established a 
large business as a ship-chandler. His quarters occupied an entire ware- 
house of three and one-half stories and basement on the corner of Buriing 
Slip. New York City. Elisha also controlled a "Packet Line" between New 
York and North Florida. His interests were far-flung throut the world — 
as he outfitted ships for many distant lands. Financing many of these 
ventures made him a very wealthy man. Before he was forty years old. 
he sold out and retired. 

Later, Elisha acquired large properties in the Bronx and finally a 
very beautiful estate at Huntington, L. I. I hnvv been told by one of the 
chief executives of the Telephone Company, that when the first dial 
system was being tested, his name with the names of other prominent 
old families of New York was picked for the experimental try-out of 
the new system. When I doubted this because my grandfather always 
u.sed three "'fs' the executive exclaimed: "Well, we just liroppod one 
of them." 

My grandfather was not a teetotaler neither am I. However, I am 
convinced his record would be as clean as my own for never having 
imbibed to the state of intoxication. He did have an elaborate wine cellar 
at Huntington. This, in the eyes of my good mother bless her soul was 
the work of the Devil. 

My father. Samuel Hobart, di«>d five months before I was born. With- 
out havmg had the opportunity of jilacing my innocent childish clutches 
in tile old gentleiuan's heart, he pas.scd away when I was five, leaving me 
the munificent sum of one dollar. 

A high-hatted, slick lawyer, by the name of Itork. settled with the 
estate for sizable sums, over a foui" year peiiod. without my innocent 
mothtr being aware of the situation. While eventually. I had newspaper 
notoriety, when a judgment was .secured against the lawyer and he was 
sent to jail not even the dollar ever reached me or my mother. 

There were others involved. Besides, I don't know the old gentleman's 
side of the triangle. He should not be condemned without a hearing. 
Despite the odious memories attached to my paternal side, at eight years

best yeomanry of the Old North State. He had a large vigorous body, strong 
mind, clear thought and sound judgment, positive conviction and unswerving 
determination. His even balanced temperament avoided extremes in thought, 
word and deed. His program of conduct could have been expressed in the 
motto, "A day's work in a day's time." His well balanced gift of heart and 
mind made him a leader in his community. As county commissioner, as state 
legislator, and teniperance advocate, school official and church worker, he 
occupied a position standing unequivocally for what he thought to be right 
and for the public welfare. He was a public spirited citizen. Throughout his 
long life he exemplified the sterling traits of character represented by the 
worthy reputation of the Atwater name.

Times in its obituary notice said: 

The deceased was eighty-seven years of age, and is survived by his wife, 
Mrs. Antoinette Respess Atwater; one son, Capt. James R. Atwater, and six 
daughters, Mrs. J. Henry Smith, of Griffin; Mrs. Fred Farris, of Atlanta; 
Mrs. George R. Turyin, of Macon; Mrs. William P. Leonard, of Talbotton; 
Mrs. Roland W. Spain, of New York city, and Mrs. A. J. King of Macon. 

Besides being one of the oldest and wealthiest of Thomaston citizens, he 
was one of the most prominent, influential and highly esteemed. Not only did 
he stand high in the affection of his home people but wherever he was known 
men respected and loved him. A citizen of another city who is one of the most 
prominent men in the state and who was a business associate of Captain 
Atwater's said of him: "Few men have lived to better purpose, or have had 
higher regard of their friends and acquaintances than Mr. Atwater." 

Captain Atwater was a man of strong convictions and once he took a 
stand in a matter he was almost unshakable. It is said of him that above all 
things he despised a hypocrite and hated all manner of shams. He was also a 
man who loved his friends and would stop at nothing to aid them. There are 
many who owe their business success to his assistance and counsel. 

Captain Atwater served through the Civil War with distinction. He was 
noted for his bravery in battle and his efficiency in military tactics, being- 
made captain of five different companies to perfect their organization. Many 
of his comrades who are still living gratefully bear testimony to his valorous 
record. 

After the conflict ended he was active in the politics of Upson county 
serving as county commissioner for twelve years, during which terms of 
service he was one of the first men in the state to refuse a permit for a cross 
road saloon. 

Captain Atwater was also one of the founders of the R. E. Lee Institute 
of Thomaston, and for twenty-three years acted as chairman for the board of 
trustees for that well known institution. 

For years Captain Atwater was a leader in every movement looking to 
the upbuilding and betterment of his town and county.

called himself his pastor's assistant and it was true. He was far-seeing, clear 
cut in his processes of thought and of a philosophic turn of mind. One writer 
said of him: "I have always regarded Mr. Atwater as one of the most genuine 
Christians that I have ever known. He was ripe and ready for the garner. 
Doubtless he had his defects, but all in all, I have known very few men who 
stood out and above the multitude as distinctly for Christ as he did. The 
spiiitual stream of his life ran smooth and deep, and he never allowed the 
straws that floated upon the surface to disturb the serenity of its depths."
