PREFACE. 

IN 1890 my uncle, S. D. Lewis of Warsaw, N. Y., 
prepared and published a genealogy of my mother's 
family, entitled "Book XVIII Lewis Family Geneal- 
ogy." From reading that book, I discovered that I 
knew very little about my own family ancestry, and as 
my mother was alive at that time, I commenced mak- 
ing inquiries of her and my aunt, Lois (Stone) Tilton, 
they being the oldest persons then alive in our family. 
I found that they knew very little in regard to the 
family history. I determined then that I would give 
the matter what study I could (which has been at odd 
tinaes and evenings, as I am a busy man with very lit- 
tle time that I can call my own). However, the study 
instead of being an irksome task, has proven to be a 
pleasant pastime. And while I had no idea at first of 
publishing the work in book form, from being urged 
by friends and relatives of the family who offered to 
contribute towards the expense, I have done so. 

In preparing this genealogy for the family (as it is 
of very little interest to any one not a member of the 
family), I have entered upon the task with a sincere 
desire to avoid doing injustice to any one, whether a 
member of the family or otherwise. 

There must be many errors in a work of this kind, 
but when I have received dates of births, deaths, etc., 
of the same family by different persons, and they have 
disagreed, I have written some member of the family 
to correct them. So if you find errors, do not charge 



them all to me or the publisher, as I have had to rely 
entirely on the written data sent me by you. 

There are many members of the family who are 
not alluded to any further than to give date of birth, 
marriage and death, and who I am confident deserve 
special mention. 

I would have more hope of satisfying the family, 
if I could have allowed myself more time. I have used 
my best efforts, with the aid of numerous persons to 
verify from the records every statement of fact given. 

The matter for the biographies has been furnished 
me by members of the family, which in some instances 
have taken considerable travel and work to procure ; 
in writing the biographical sketches, there has been 
no effort made at coloring, but to give a brief sketch 
that would enable the reader to form a correct idea of 
the individual; neither has there been any effort made 
to connect the family by side-lines or otherwise to 
families that are eminently wealthy or have gained 
high positions in any of the walks of life; but to give 
a simple statement of facts, such as dates of birth, 
marriage and death, with a short biography of each 
head of the family. 

In a great many instances our family can be con- 
nected with the families of noted men, such as : Adams, 
Webster, Thomas Hooker, Grant, Arthur and a host 
of others. So, also, can any New England family of 
the Puritan stock connect itself by side lines to these 
families, or any other families that came to New Eng- 
land in an early day. 

A life of peace and prosperity furnishes but little 
matter for a chronicle. Such, with few exceptions, 
have been the lives of our family. 

This work has been prepared solely for the Stone 
family and its descendants; and if a stranger or per- 



son not a member of the family, should chance to 
peruse its pages, we trust you will not criticise it 
although you may be amused at the simplicity of the 
lives of some of its members. Remember that you are 
reading a family record that is sacred to some one. 

In preparing this work for publication, I have re- 
ceived valuable assistance from a great many mem- 
bers of the family who have furnished me the data 
from which the genealogy has been prepared ; to all 
of whom I here return my thanks. 

My thanks are also due to many gentlemen who 
have facilitated the collection of material, for the 
biographies; and especially to Col. Wm. L. Stone of 
Mt. Vernon, N. Y., who has kindly and freely given 
me the use of his "Genealogy of The Stone Family,'" 
from which the second and third chapter of this work 
are almost entirely taken. I would also state that 
this book is the same size of type and page (printed 
matter) as Col. Stone's Genealogy. I have therefore 
entitled this volume "Book II of The Family of John 
Stone, one of the first settlers of Guilford, Conn." 

The historical events briefly related in Chapter I, 
are so closely identified with the early history of our 
family, that I deemed it essential to concisely relate 
an account of the most important occurrences of this 
region. I gladly refer the interested reader to "Smith's 
History of Guilford" for a more extended account, as 
it is to this work I am indebted for most of the data 
for the first chapter. I am also indebted to Wm. Leete 
Stone, Judge Post, "Wm. G. Andrews, D. D., of Guil- 
ford, Conn., and others for valuable information to 
whom I desire to express my thanks. 

Finally, I would call attention to the fact that this 
book contains the names of all the descendants of Rus- 
sell, Bille, Timothy and Eber down to 189G. 



Echvard Burk has well said: "Those who do not 
cherish the memory of their ancestors, do not deserve 
to be remembered by posterity."

P. S. 

Since writing the above, the genealogy has met 
with hard luck ; after most of the book was published 
and in readiness for the binder, fire broke out in the 
building in which the work was being done, and 
destroyed not only the printed matter but most of MS. 
However, with what was saved from the fire, together 
with proof sheets and memoranda that I had at my 
command, I have been enabled to reproduce the book 
in some respects in better form than the first copy. 

The fates seem to have been against the little book 
since it got into the printers' hands, as the delays 
have been many and of long duration.

Chapter I. 

Guilford is a village of about three thousand 
inhabitants, located on Long Island Sound, about 
twenty miles east of New Haven, in the State of 
Connecticut. 

It was settled in 1039 by a company of Puritans 
from Surrey, and Kent County, England, under the 
leadership of the Rev. Henry Whitfield. The original 
town included the present towns of Madison and 
Guilford, stretched along the shore of Long Island 
Sound, from Branford to Killingworth, a distance on 
a straight line of nine or ten miles, and extending 
back from the Sound about the same distance; the 
whole original town, like others in the vicinity and 
country, was originally inhabited by Indians, who 
called it, or at least the western part of it, Menunka- 
tuck ; they were numerous on the great plain south of 
Guilford borough, as appears from the vast amount of 
shells brought upon it, and which are mouldering 
there to this day. 

The part of the township, which embraces nearly

all of the present town of Guilford, was purchased of 
the sachem-squaw of ilenunkatuck, Shaumpishuh 
[the Indian inhabitants consenting] September 29, 
I'joO, by Henry Whitfield, Robert Kitchell, William 
Leete (afterwards Governor Leete) William Chitten- 
den, John Bishop and John Caffinge, in behalf of 
themselves and others who had come out to New 
Haven the same year and who were now resolved to 
make a settlement at this place. At the time of the 
purchase it was understood and agreed that the deed 
should remain in the hands of the planters until a 
church should be organized in the town, to whom it 
should be given, and imder whose superintendence 
the lands should be divided out, to those who were 
interested in them. The articles given for this tract 
^vere twelve coats, twelve fathoms of wampum, twelve 
glasses, twelve pairs of shoes, twelve hatchets, twelve 
pairs of stockings, twelve hoes, four kettles, twelve 
knives, twelve hats, twelve porringers, twelve spoons, 
and two English coats. 

The English settlement commenced immediately 
after this purchase, on the groimds now included in 
Guilford borough, the plain, and some lands near the 
Sound, having been cleared by the Indians, and 
prepared for cultivation. 

Mr. Whitfield was desirous of extending the plan- 
tation (as they called it) and it was through him that 
other purchases of land were made from the Indians, 
a part of which was purchased from Uncas, who 
probably claimed the land in virtue of the conquest of 
the Pequoids, in which he assisted. 

The first settlers of this town came from Surrey 
and Kent, near London. England, and were mostly 
farmers. They had not a merchant among them and 
scarcely a mechanic, so it was at great trouble and

expense that they procured a bhicksmith on theii 
plantation. 

They called the town Guilford in lemembrance of 
Guilford, a borough town, the capital of Surrey, 
where many of them had lived. 

About forty planters came into the town in 1(::)0. 
There were forty-eight in 1650, which undoubtedly 
included the original forty. 

The Rev. Henry "Whitfield, ■\Villiain Leete, John 
Stone, John's brother, "William, and at least twent}'- 
one others, some with families, others with none; set 
sail from London, England, on May -^Oth, 1630, for the 
New "World. They styled themselves the Guilford 
Company, and on the first day of June, 1630, while on 
shipboard, the little band signed a plantation cove- 
nant in which they expressed a purpose to settle near 
Quinnipiack (New Haven). The covenant signed 
reads as follows: 

COVEXAXT. 

"We, whose names are hereunder written, intend- 
ing by God's gracious permission to plant ourselves 
in Xew England, and, if it may be, in the southerly 
part, about Quinnipiack: We do faithfully promise 
each to each for ourselves and families and those 
that belong to us; that we will, the Lord assisting us, 
sit down and join oui-selves together in one intire 
plantation; and to be helpful each to the other in 
every common work, a,ccording to every man's ability 
and as need shall require; and we promise not to 
desert or leave each other or the plantation, but with 
the consent of the rest, or the greater part of the 
company who have entered into this engagement. 

As for our gathering together in a church way, and 
the choice of officers and members to be joined

together in that way, we do refer ourselves until such 
time as it shall please God to settle us in our plantation. 
In witness whereof we subscribe our hands, the

Between the 10th and loth of July, li-!'.'. they 
entered Xew Haven harbor, their ships (for they had 
two), being the first vessels that had entered it. After 
landing at New Haven measures were immediately 
taken to find a suitable location for the Company, and 
after careful examination they soon decided upon 
"Menunkatuck," to which they subsequently gave the 
name of Guilford, and before whiter, had built their 
houses and moved into them, among which was the 
noted stone house of Henry Whitfield, which is said 
to be the oldest house in Connecticut. It was built in 
1630. "Palfrey's History of New England" says, "it 
was erected both for the accommodation of his family, 
and as a fortification, for the protection of the inhab- 
itants against the Indians." This house was kept in 
this original form until 1^08 when it underwent such

renovation as changed its appearance and internal 
arrangements to a great extent, although the north 
wall and large stone chimney are suhstantially the 
same as they have heen for over two-hundred-fifty 
years. The walls are of stone from a ledge eighty 
rods distant to the east, and were probably brought 
on hand-barrows across a swamp, over a rude cause- 
way which is still to be traced; a small addition has 
been made to the back of the house in modern times, 
but there is no question that the main building 
remains in its original state, even to the oak of the 
beams, floors, doors, and window frames. The height 
of the first story is seven feet, and eight inches, the 
second story, six feet nine inches. The house occu- 
pies a rising ground overlooking the great plain south 
of the village, and commanding a very fine prospect 
of the Sound. It is said the first marriage was cele- 
brated in it — the wedding table being garnished with 
the substantial luxuries of pork and peas. This house, 
and the farm in connection with it is now owned by 
Mrs. S. B. Cone of Stockbridge. 

On the opposite side of the street (Whitfield 
Street) and nearer the village green, was the allotment 
of John Stone. How long he owned this place is 
uncertain but Rev. Joseph Eliot purchased the place 
in 1G64, and his descendants own the place to this 
day, except a lot that was sold off and was the home 
of the late Dr. Talcott. The places where most of the 
original settlers located themselves are now known. 
The road through Guilford was, before railroads, 
much used by travelers from New York and Boston. 
The N. Y. N. H. & H. Shore line now runs trains 
through this place to New York and Boston almost 
every hour. The first society was famous for raising 
corn, it was said as much as a hundred bushels of ears

had been raised on an acre, but that forty bushels was 
a fair yield. 

Menunkatuck or "West RiYer, which runs by the 
place of Caleb Sfnne (now owned by his descendant 
William Leete Stone) rises in Quonepaug pond, in 
North Guilford, and empties into Guilford harbor. 

Thomas Chittenden, the first Governor of Ver- 
mont, was a native of this town. Fitz-Green Halleck, 
the poet, was born in Guilford, he was the first Ameri- 
can poet to whom was awarded the honor of a bronze 
statue in a public place. It occupies a prominent 
position in Central Park, New York. 

George Hill, the poet, was born in Guilford. 

"Meanwhile a younger race, a different age, 
Has risen up to occupy the stage, 
Yet oft I think of Guilford, with delight, 
.\nd feel full halfway there, while this I write." 

—Halleck. 

The people of Guilford in September, ISSO, held 
a celebration commemorating the establishment in 
10:)0 of the plantation of Menunkatuck (now repre- 
sented by the towns of Guilford and Madison), it being 
the two-hundreth-fiftieth anniversary. The exercises 
Sunday, September Sth, consisted of sermons preached 
in the churches of Guilford and Madison (once East 
Guilford). At 2:30 p. m.. Rev. C. L. Kitchell of New 
Haven, Conn., "who is a descendant of Robert Kit- 
chell, 1639," preached a historical sermon in the First 
Congregational Church at Guilford from which the 
following is an extract : 



MEMORANDA. 



FROM A HISTORICAL SERMON. 



Rev. Cornelius L. Kitchell of New Haven. 

By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out into a 
place which he \Yas to receive for an inheritance: and he went out 
not knowing whither he went. — Hebrews xi: S. 

Just how the call came to Abraham we do not 
know. But while he VN-as living in Ur of the Chaldees, 
God, in some way, spake to him, and said: "Get thee 
out from thy country and from thy kindred and from 
thy father's house unto a land that I will show thee." 

To this divine mandate Abraham was not disobe- 
dient. The home of his childhood, the home of his 
fathers was dear to him, but there he could not worship 
as he would the one holy and living God. Far to the 
west, across the deserts, was a land where, unmo- 
lested, he and his children could follow the dictates of 
their finer spiritual instinct. The thought of that 
country whispered to his soul in divine accents. It 
would not let him rest. God called him. A divine 
promise, large and sure, beckoned him. And so, with 
a chosen company, he set out not knowing whither he 
went, knowing only that the God who called him 
would lead him and give him an inheritance in the 
land of promise. 

Since Abraham's day many children of his, in 
spirit, have heard a like call and have left their homes 
with a like faith, but, of them all, none were truer 
descendants of the Father of the Faithful than the

little company %vhose history we are to trace today. 
Two hundred and fifty years ago our ancestors who 
settled this town were living, most of them, in Surrey 
and Kent, those southern counties which are called, 
for their richness and beauty, the garden of England. 
It was a time of ease and of peace in temporal things. 
They were comfortably provided with this world's 
goods for their station, surrounded with relatives and 
friends, proud and fond of England, their native land ; 
but a tyrannical king and a bigoted prelate forced 
upon them the superstitious observances, as it seemed 
to them, of that Roman church from which they had 
hoped they were free. They could not conscientiously 
conform thereto. If they did not, fines, persecutions, 
imprisonments, exiles, were inflicted upon them. 
They heard of a New England across the sea, where 
others who sympathized with them had fled and found, 
as yet, freedom to worship God. Just as surely as 
Canaan was a land of promise to Abraham, New Eng- 
land was to our forefathers. God said to them just as 
clearly as he did to the ancient patriarch: "Get thee 
out from your country and from your kindred and 
from your father's house." By faith, obeying that 
call, they went out, a little company, bidding good- 
bye to friends and native land, in frail and diminutive 
vessels, across the perilous sea, into the uncultivated 
wilderness, destitute of habitation, haunted by sav- 
ages, out beyond the older settlements, that without 
peradventure they might be beyond the reach of the 
tyrant's arm, and there in the wisdom of the Scrip- 
tures and of common sense, in the fear of God, they 
laid unique foundations of a free Commonwealth and 
a free Church, from which, and others like them, as 
the centuries rolled on has developed the great nation 
in which we dwell. The land to which they were

called they did afterward inherit. The text thus sug- 
gests the two-fold aspect, namely, the Going out in 
Faith and the Inheriting the Laud, under which we 
may include the origin and the development of the 
Church of Christ here. 

first: going out in faith. 

Sometime in September, 1030 (0. S.), certain plan- 
ters of this colony, seeking a habitation, came to 
Meuunkatuck, as the region was called. Pleased with 
what they found, on the 59th of September, articles of 
agreement were signed by six of them representing 
the whole colony, and the sachem-squaw who claimed 
ownership. In consideration of smidry coats, fathoms 
of wampum, glasses, shoes, hatchets, etc., "the said 
sachem-squaw did sell to the aforesaid English plant- 
ers all the land within the limits of Ruttawoo (East 
River) and Agicomick river (Stony Creek)," the 
present limits of Guilford. Immediately after this 
purchase, before winter probably, the whole company 
came over from New Haven where they had disem- 
barked the June preceding, and took possession .of 
lands near the Sound, "especially the great plain south 
of the town," which the historian tells us had been 
"already cleared and enriched by the natives." While 
the little community is getting itself into shape, let 
us ask who they are and how they have been led here. 

First of all, we need to note that they are but a 
little baud of a vast company. It has been computed 
that between the years 1G30 and 1040 more than 20,000 
persons arrived in New England from the mother 
country. It was the time of Charles the first and his 
Archbishop Laud, the time of the Star Chamber and 
High Commissions. Many of the most active and

most Godly ministers of the Church of England with 
their congregations, though they loved their "dear 
mother Church," as they did not cease to call her, 
could not conform to the superstitious ceremonies 
arbitrarily prescribed, and as non-conformists, fled to 
Ne%%" England. 

One such minister was Henry Whitfield, of Ockley 
in Surrey, who became the leader and pastor of the 
company which settled in Guilford. Cotton Mather, 
in his Magnalia. tells of him that he was educated to 
be a lawyer, "first at the University and then at the 
Inns of Court. But the gracious and early operation 
of the Holy Spirit on his heart inclined him rather to 
be a preacher of the Gospel." For twenty years he 
was a conformist, but as the result of an interview 
with Rr-v. John Cotton (afterward pastor at Boston) 
and R^z-v. John Davenport (afterward pastor at Xew 
Haven) both of whom for their non-conformity were 
later compelled to fly, first to Holland and thence to 
New England, "Whitfield embraced a modest seces- 
sion." as Cotton Mather phrases it. Summoned once 
and again before the archbishop's court, and becoming 
liable to censure, no longer able "to proceed in the 
public exercise of his ministry," he resigned his rich 
living, sold his personal estate and became the leader 
of these Surrey and Kent farmers. They knew his 
piety and his ability from missionary w-ork he had 
done among them, and "felt they could not do without 
his ministry." Like him, too, they considered affairs 
at home were hopeless, and duty called them to lay 
new foundations for Christ's kingdom beyond the sea. 

Two other men of this little colony we need to 
note. One of them, William Leete, was afterward 
magistrate here in Guilford, then Governor of New 
Haven Colony, later deputy Governor of the United 



MEMORANDA. 



GENEALOGY OF THE STONE FAMILY. '^l 

Colony of Connecticut, and later still for several years 
Governor of Connecticut, by annual election till he 
died. The decided and excellent quality of this man 
appeared early. He is the only member of this little 
colony except Mr. Whitfield whose experience in Eng- 
land, Cotton Mather tells us of. 

The other notable person was Samuel Desborough, 
whose brother married the sister of Oliver Cromwell, 
and who in later years under the Lord Protector was 
Keeper of the Great Seal of Scotland, training for 
which high office he had in being one of the seven 
pillars of the church and magistrate here in Guilford, 
before yet he returnea to England. 

Around these men as leaders gathered the sturdy 
farmers of Kent and Surrey, young men, most of 
them, we are told, forty planters in all, and embark- 
ing from London in May, lOoO, in two vessels proba- 
bly, began their long voyage of forty-nine days across 
the Atlantic. 

Now in regard to this company, note that while 
they were not organized as a church, yet they were 
distinctively a religious community, whose leader 
was their pastor and whose "Design was Religion." 
Their main object was not adventure, nor trade, nor 
the improvement of their personal estates. They 
were indeed of that great race in whose blood has 
ever been a readiness to brave danger, and I do not 
deny that they were sagacious and thrifty men bound 
to do as best they could for their families and estates, 
but first of all they did seek the Kingdom of God and 
His righteousness. Listen to what they declare four 
years later when they were about to form their civil 
government: --The mayne ends which were pro- 
pounded to ourselves in our coming hither and settling 
down together are. that we may settle and uphold the

ordinances of God in an explicit Congrega- 
tional Church way \vith most purity, peace liberty 
for the benefit both of ourselves and posterity 
after us." 

They landed at Xew Haven probably toward the 
end of June. Sometime before the ^Oth of September, 
they held their first meeting of which we have any 
record, in Mr. Newman's barn in New Haven, and 
agreed that the lands called Menunkatuck should be 
purchased for them and their heirs, "the deed-writ- 
ings there about to be made and drawn in the name of 
these six planters in our steads, viz. : Henry Whitfield, 
Robert Kitchell, William Leete, William Chittenden, 
John Bishop, and John Caflinge." 

These six planters as directed, purchased the laud, 
and the little colony of about two hundred souls we 
may suppose, as has been before narrated, came over 
from New Haven before winter and the history of this 
community began. 

And now for nearly four j'ears, until June 19th, 
1643, when the church was first formally instituted, 
but little is recorded. That they nourished a vigorous 
religious and devotional life in all this period of patient 
waiting, as we should otherwise suppose is indicated 
also by the fact that midway in it, in 1014, the Rev. 
John Higginson was called as "teacher" to assist Mr. 
Whitfield, the pastor, in his work. Why they did not 
organize a church at once, we can only conjecture. 
Most likely they felt less need of such organization, 
because they were, as it were, a church already. Not 
only was Mr. Whitfield, their leader, a regular clergy- 
man whose ordination they accepted and never had 
repeated (as was done in the case of Mr. Davenport at 
New Haven and others), but many of them had 
enjoyed his ministrations in their former homes, and

one of them, 'Sir. Thomas Xorton, had been warden 
of Mr. Whitfield's churcdi at Ockley. 

That they kept the formation of a church steadily 
in view is evident from this record of an agreement 
made at a meeting of the planters held February 2d, 
104:-2, at a time when the need of some more explicit 
kind of civil government appears first to have found 
expression: "It is agreed that the civil pov^-er of

How long tlii< inderniinate condition of Church 
and State would have continued, had not some impulse 
come from without, it would be difficult to say. Such 
an impulse, however, did come in the spring of 1G43, 
at which time it became necessary, owing to the 
breach then existing between King and Parliament, 
for the colony here to combine with New Haven and 
the other New England colonies for the sake of secur- 
ity. But in order to do this, it was necessary that 
Guilford should adopt some definite civil constitution 
and form of government, and as in their idea, the 
civil government was to be the creature of the church, 
the church itself must be first definitely organized that 
it might, in turn, call the civil body into existence. 

Accordingly on June lOth, 164:3, the first step was 
taken by choosing seven men to be the "seven pillars." 
These seven pillars were the pastor, Henry Whit- 
field, his assistant and son-in-law John Higginson, 
Samuel Desborough, William Leete, Jacob Sheaffe, 
John Mipham and John Hoadley. This v>-as in accord- 
ance with the method pursued in New Haven four 
years before, at the suo-gestion of Rev. John Daven-

port, tlie pastor tliere, who derived this method of 
ecclesiastical organization from the text: "Wisdom 
hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven 
pillars." Tliis may seem to us rather heroic hom- 
iletis, but practically at that time it met the 
case. These Christians in the wilderness had 
cut loose from tlie ancient foimdations. They were 
feeling- for the simplicity of the early Church which 
gathered about Christ as the only foimdatiou. and 
practically they attained it. Yet. members as they 
were of the ancient Church of England, it must have 
satisfied their imagination and filled a void in their 
hearts, to hare someihing io join. These seven godly. 
Christian men, choicest of tlie whole band — these 
seven pillars in some unconscious \vay and with a sort 
of Scriptural sanction stood to them, we cannot doubt, 
in place of the goodly battlements of that great his- 
toric Church from which they never separated, but 
from which they were now cutting loose. 

These seven elect men first drew up a "Doctrine 
of Faith," the same used in the First Church, till in 
is:)r it was somewhat amended. To this th^i^y for- 
mally assented and then entered into covenant with 
God and each other. Thus was laid the foundation. 
Then the other members joined themselves to these 
seven pillars by making the same profession and 
covenant and the church was fully gathered and 
established. 

Of the newly organized church Mr. Whitfield 
continued to be pastor just as he had been of the 
colony from the beginning. It would seem that he 
was never formally chosen pastor by the church nor 
installed, probably because for several years he had 
actually been their pastor and in the work and was a 
regularly ordained clergyman.

Rev. John Higgiuson was also continued as 
"teacher." He preached one-half day every Sabbath 
and had charge of the public school. The office of 
ruling elder, which existed in New Haven and other 
New England churches was not adopted here. Neither 
were deacons chosen either in Mr. "Whitfield's or Mr. 
Higginson's ministry, that is, for nearly a quarter of 
a century. Three men were chosen annually who 
collected the minister's maintenance, and managed 
the temporalities of the church like vestrymen in the 
Church of England. To the church thus constituted 
the four planters who had been entrusted with the 
control of affairs until a church should be gathered, 
resigned their trust and by the church thus organized 
the civil polity of the plantation was thereupon 
established. 

In that civil polity the feature which now seems 
most peculiar, and for which the church is justly held 
responsible, is the provision that only church mem- 
bers should be voting citzens. This is fully expressed 
in the constitution which the church drafted for the 
civil government now to be set up by it. It reads: 
"We do now therefore all and every of us agree, order 
and conclude that only such planters as are also mem- 
bers of the church here shall be and be called freemen 
and that such freemen only shall have power to elect 
magistrtites, deputies and other officers of public 
interest, or authoriy in matters of importance, con- 
cerning either the civil affairs or government here, 
from amongst themselves and not elsewhere." In a 
word, only church members could vote or be voted for. 

"What our fathers thus did was with entire unani- 
mity, in accordance with the high purpose that actu- 
ated them, to erect a miniature republic in which the 
good should rule. They thought they had found who

the good were, namel}", those who by a regenerating 
faith had become members of the true Church of 
Christ. So they established a popukir government 
with a ••piety quahfication" — not property nor learn- 
ing but personal character should be the test of 
citizenship. 

That such were the motives that induced our 
fathers to thus limit citizenship appears very clearly 
in a treatise written at that time, probably by Rev. 
John Davenport (though ascribed on its title page t.) 
John Cotton), entitled '-A Discourse about Civil Gov- 
ernment in a Xew Plantation whose Design is Keli- 
giou." In this note the Sixth Argument, (which 
doubtless underlay all the rest) namely: ••The dangi-r 
of devolving this (civil) power upon those not in 
church order." AVhen Mr. Davenport came to the 
Massachusetts colony on his way ti;i Xew Haven, he 
found that they in Massachusetts had seven years 
before (May ISth, 1C31) limited citizenship in the same 
way. They had done so in part because they were 
afraid that otherwise emissaries of the King, or of 
Laud, might gain entrance into their councils. Th- 
same danger existed here and they sought to escape it 
in the same wav.

Her bravest in the strife on battle plains, 
Her wisest in the strife of voice and pen ;

On this side ocean slept their wearied sails, 

.\nd their toil-bells woke up our thousand hills and dales, 

' Shamed they their fathers?' Ask the village spires 
Above their Sabbath homes of praise and prayer : 
Ask of their children's happy household fires. 

And happier har\-est noons; ask summer's air. 
Made merry by young voices, when the wires 
Of their school casres are unloosed."

ence in opinion on that subject, Col. William L. Stone 
of Mt. Vernon, N. Y., who has written a book entitled 
"The Family of John Stone," seems to have no doubt 
but that the Rev. Samuel Stcne was our English 
ancestor. He says in the introductory of his work : 
"Various have been the traditions concerning the 
origin of the Stone family in America. The most 
commonly accepted one has been that six brothers 
came over in a vessel of their own to Watertown, 
Mass.; that their names respectively were: Deacon 
Simon, (others say Rev. Simon) Stone, William Stone, 
John Stone, Deacon Gregory Stone, Isaac Stone, and

Rev. Samuel Stone. That the first three settled at 
Watertown (some say little Cambrid^^e and Dor- 
chester), "William and John at Guilford, Conn., and 
Rev. Samuel at Hartford, Conn." This tradition 
further states that they were all the sons of Rev. 
Samuel Stone, a non-conformist divine of Hereford- 
shire, England, and educated at Emanuel College, 
Cambridge, and a lecturer in Torcester, Northamp- 
tonshire {From Cotton Mathers Jlagnalia, Vol. 1, P. 
392-5, Hartford, 1S30.) On the other hand and in 
direct conflict with above "A History of the first 
church in Hartford, Conn., states that Rev. Samuel 
Stone was a son of John Stone, a freeholder of Her- 
ford, England. This is based on investigations made 
in England, on the records of Hertford, and so far as 
the ancestry of Rev. Samuel (who founded Hartford, 
Conn.) is concerned, this statement is undoubtedly 
the correct one; (in regard to the history of Rev. 
Samuel Stone, who was the founder of Hartford, more 
can be found in a work printed by George Leon 
Walker in 1S84; in the course of his story of the old 
first church of Hartford, he has a good deal to say of 
Rev. Samuel Stone). The register of the "Church of 
All Saints," Hertford (not Hereford,) Eng., has the 
following entries of the baptisms of Rev. Samuel Stone 
of Hartford (not Rev. Samuel of England) and his 
brothers and sisters: 

Jeremyas, son of John Stone, baptized February

This record seems to explode the tradition of the 
'Six Brothers" for Rev. Samuel, "of Hartford," was 
the son of Jolm, not of Sainnel, and Simon, and Greg- 
ory could hardly have been his brothers, even sup- 
posing that their baptisms do not appear on the Hert- 
ford register was from neglect to record them or from 
some other cause, since it is known (from their ages) 
that Simon Avas born in 1585, and Gregory in loOO. It 
is therefore extremely unlikely tliat they were the 
brothers of Samuel, whose father continued to have 
children as late as 1G29. 

It has also been stated that Simon Stone "came 
over from Ipswich in the ship Increase April 15th, 
1G;35." Of John Stone, Col. William L. Stone says 
that lie has come across no less than ten of that name 
who were early settlers in New England. A Stone 
Genealogy of the Rhode Island branch, says that a 
John Stone, aged forty, came to Salem, Mass., in 
April, 1035, from Hawkhurst, England, in the ship 
Elizabeth, where he remained for some years plying a 
ferry between that village and Beverly, finally moving 
to Guilford, Conn.

A Hugh Stone, also, settled in Cranston, R. I., 
and was the founder of the Stones in that State. 

It would appear from the foregoing that it is use- 
less to try to trace the Stone family in America, from 
a single source. There were doubtless many of that 
name who were among the earliest emigrants to the 
colonies, and who, in all probability, were in nowise 
related to each other. Fortunately, however, for us, 
no such obscurity envelops our New England ancestor, 
and while it might have been pleasant to believe that 
we were directly descended from Rev. Samuel Stone, 
the founder of Hartford, and the faithful companion 
and friend of the devoted Hooker, yet the contrary 
finds more than its compensation in the certainty with 
which patient investigation has answered the ques- 
tion, who was our American Ancestor? Who the par- 
ents were of Rev. Samuel Stone, "our English Ances- 
tor," cannot be ascertained from the fact that he was 
a non-conformist divine, consequently no records of 
his marriage and ancestors exist in Parish records. 
Had he been of the Church of England no such diflfi- 
culty would have existed.

Chapter III. 

Children of the Rev. Samuel Stone of Hereford, England. 



I. JOHN STOXE, the founder of our house in 
America, was the son of Rev. Samuel Stone, a non- 
conformist divine, of Hereford, on the Wye of Here- 
fordshire, England. He was born in Herefordshire 
near Guilford (probably at Okley) the borough town 
of Surrey County, about lillO, and came to New Eng- 
land in the summer of l'i:)'i in company of "William 
Leete (afterward Governor Leete) and Rev. Henry 
"Whitfield, settling in what is now called Guilford, 
Connecticut. John and his brother William came in 
Whitfield's first Guilford company, having set sail 
frrun England, May 20, li;:3li, in two ships. When 
theii- ships had been about ten days out these brothers, 
with William Leete and others, of their companions, 
entered into a written agreement, or us it was called, 
a "Plantation Covenant." (See page .5.) Between 
the loth and 1.5th of July their sbips dropped anchor 
in the harbor at New Haven, the first vessels that had 
ever entered it. John was a farmer, also by trade a 
clothier, and a mason. It being no uncommon thing 
in those days for a man to have two, or even more 
trades. He was for many years town constable, an 
office which was far more respectable than that of 
sheriff is now. He seems to have been a man well

thought of among his fellows, since his family not 
only intermarried with that of Governor Leete, hut 
he was often employed by the Selectmen of the town, 
as Referee, in varicus cases in which high character 
and strict probity were required. John's first allot- 
ment of land was on what is now Whitfield Street, 
opposite Henry Whitfield's first place, and near the 
village green. How long he owned this place is not 
known, but Rev. Joseph Eliott purchased the place in 
lOO-t and his descendants own the place to this day. 
One that is competent to know says that John Stone's 
place was afterward at the corner of York and Fair 
streets, the present site of the Institute, or high school. 

John's brother William* was the ancestor of (Lois 
Stone* 30) who married (Russell Stone* Mu). William 
was a farmer and kept an inn at North Guilford. He 
came to Guilford with his wife Hannah with the fisrt 
company. He married for a second wife in lii-V'. Mary 
Hughes, and died November, liis:!.

Royal Governor of Connecticut 1G61-5 and 1GT6, until 
his death at Hartford, April 16, 1GS3, where he was 
buried in the old Center Churchyard. It was here 
that the first white child was born in Guilford, viz. : 
John Leete, born 1639. 

''Styles History of the Judges''' says the Governor's 
house was situated on the east bank of West River. 
He had a store on the bank a few rods from his house, 
and under it a cellar, (the walls of which remain to 
this day, and which the writer visited and viewed with 
interest May 28, ISOi). It is still in the general and 
concurrent tradition at Guilford, that the Judges Goff e 
and Whalley were concealed and lodged in this cellar 
several nights, most say three nights and three days, 
being constantly supplied with food from the Gover- 
nor's table. Col. Wm. L. Stone has written an enter- 
taining story called "Mercy Disborough a Tale of the 
"Witches," founded on the fact of Governor Leete's 
hiding the regicides GoSe and Whalley. 

The time of this concealment must have been 
between June 11 and 20, ICGO; here and at Rossiters, 
they spent above a week. This cellar still remains in 
good condition and the wall will stand for future gen- 
erations to inspect. It is now used for the storage of 
empty barrels.

left in all that city at that time. In 1818 he with his 
brother-in-law, Hiram Couch, built a woolen factory 
at Westfield, which he continued to operate until a 
few years ago. Lester is the last one of the seventh 
generation that is alive. He has been an active busi- 
ness man all his long life and the writer has received 
a number of communications from him in the last

For sometliing like fifteen years he was the agent 
for Wyoming Count}- of the Farmers' Loan and Trust 
Company of New York, and for the town of Orange-

successors of the Old Holland Land Company, and at 
the time they held a very large number of mortgages 
and owned a great number of farms' in that part of 
"VTyoming County, included in the Holland Land Com- 
pany's purchase. This business entrusted to him Avas

the most gratifying commendation of the companies 
he represented, and the thanks and confidence of all 
persons occupying these lands, and liable to pay these 
mortgages, who everywhere expressed their gratitude

Simeon D. Lewis of "Warsaw., Y., wrote the following 
obituary : 

Mrs. Eliza Lewis Stone was the daughter of Hon. 
Truman Lewis, one of the pioneers of Wyoming 
county. She was born February ■20th, 18-2U, in the 
town of Orangeville, where she always lived. 

At the time of her birth the struggles of her par- 
ents for a comfortable home were by no means ended. 
^yhen we remember also that she was five years old 
when De "Witt Clinton made his memorable iourney 
from Albany to Buffalo on the Erie canal ; that she 
was ten years old when the first short railroad was 
built in this country, and that she was twenty-five 
years old when Morse first exhibited to the world the 
wonders of the telegraph; we can easily understand 
that in her younger days her environment was unfav- 
orable to a liberal education, and that in this respect 
she was limited to the curriculum of the district 
school. She was, however, a great reader, and was 
therefore, to the last a woman of unusual intelligence 
— keeping constantly abreast of the times in current 
literature, and the general news of the day. 

On her -^Oth birthday she was united in marriage 
to Harvey Stone, and bravely began with him a strug- 
gle for a home and a competence, in which effort they 
were reasonably successful. 

She had three children — Mrs. George L. Parker, of 
Buffalo; Morris L. Stone, of Wamego, Kansas, and 
Truman L. Stone, of Orangeville, with whom she has 
lived since tlie death of her husband in 18s7. 

She was a woman of cheerful temper, kind to all, 
sympathetic with all who were in trouble, and ever 
ready to aid the unfortunate, and do what she could 
to relieve those who were in distress. 

The legitimate fruits of a long life so filled with 
good deeds, was a large circle of devoted friends, who 
mourn her departure. In her christian character, she 
was a woman of deeds rather than of professions. She 
was not one of those who on the street corners cried, 
"Lord, Lord," but rather one who did the will of her 
Heavenlv Father.

For several years she has been an invalid; at 
times a sufferer, and recently almost helpless, but 
through all these weary months and years she has 
been cheerful, and has ever seemed disposed to look 
on the bright side of life. 

In the remembrance of her broad charitv, her 
cheerful disposition, her life filled with good deeds, 
and her love for all that is good and bright and beau- 
tiful her children have a priceless legacy. 

The spring after his (Harvey's) marriage he 
bought some land of his father, Reuben (37). He 
lived on this farm until the winter of 181-i, when he 
sold this farm and purchased of his father-in-law 
(Truman Lewis), who was agent for the Trustees 
under the will of James Loyd, deceased, of Boston, 
Mass., a farm on lot No. 58, in Orangeville, N. y! 
He afterward bought more land so that he had a large 
farm. He built good buildings and lived on this farm 
in comparative comfort all his life. He held the office 
of supervisor in is.55, was a justice of the peace for 
twelve years, and justice of .sessions for the county 
two terms. He loved his country and its civil institu- 
tions. While a boy at school he wrote an essay which 
was long, and prophesied with uncommon clearness 
that the final result of slavery in this country would 
be war and bloodshed, which prophecy proved only 
too true. He was a man of sterling virtues. Among 
these may be mentioned remarkable uprightness of 
character, and he possessed a great dislike for any- 
thing petty or mean. 

He was ever ready to oblige when it could be done 
without sacrifice of principle, but could not give up his 
own personal opinions. He attended and supported 
the Presbyterian church. He and his wife lie peace- 
fully side by side in the cemetery at Johnsonburg,

a very large collection of commemorating neighbors 
and friends from adjoining tovrns. Eeuben Stone, 
father of the decased, was an early pioneer of the 
town, locating in 1811, from Livonia. Livingston 
County, N. Y. Mr. Stone was truly a native of the 
town in which he had lived from birth, born on the 
premises where his father first located, February 
lith, 1818. A representative citizen, meriting and 
retaining the confidence of a community most familiar 
with him, was the recipient of all the town offices at 
various periods, except town clerk and collector. 
For two terms presided on the bench as justice of ses- 
sions. His industry and exertions largely promoted 
the clearing up and" prosperity of the town. Among 
the first to introduce extended dairy manufacture of

merit. His genial deportment will not fail to be

strangers equally genial. Always a well provided 
home furnished an open door of welcome and hospital-

Dear Friend: — I hear you are contemplating writing 
up and publishing a life of your father, and I want to 
contribute a few words. I went into Judge Corlett's 
oflBce in Attica, as a law-student in 1S57; and, as was 
the case with all law- students in those days, I was 
expected to pettifog all justice's court matters coming 
into the office ; and with a copy of Blackstone under 
my arm, I traveled all over that region and became 
acquainted with every justice of the peace for miles 
around. One day I was directed by the judge to go up

before Esq. Stone of Orangeville, and try a law-suit. 
He explained to me the matter and advised me what to 
do. I asked him who would be against me, and was 
told Blackmer, Henshaw or Gladding and, perhaps, 
all combined. I was startled, for all those gentlemen 
were giants in justices' court, in those days. Judge 
Corlett noticed my terror, — said encouragingly, 
"Don't be scared! Harve Stone," as he was famil- 
iarly called, "presides in and runs his own court, and 
no party in a suit before him, fails to receive justice 
no matter who his lawyer is, or who is against him, 
and he won't see you harmed." Thus assured, I went 
and tried the case, and found Esq. Stone just as Cor- 
lett had said, and in the many times aftei that I 
appealed in his court, I had additional evidence that 
impartial justice was ahvays dealt out to suitors. He 
was remarkable along that line. He could grasp the 
question in dispute and readily see what justice 
required, and was fearless in administering it. He 
never permitted technicalities to stand in the way; 
but, before resorting to trial, he sat, in all matters of 
dispute between his neighbors, as a mediator and a 
peacemaker. The same independence and fearless- 
ness that characterized his official acts was seen in his 
politcal life. He was always ready, when disagreeing 
with old political associates, to give a reason for the 
faith that was in him. His large commanding pres- 
ence and personal address, with an inexhaustible fund 
of good humor and agreeable conversational powers, 
made him a welcome party in any gathering. Every- 
body conceded conscientiousness and honesty to the 
acts of Harvey Stone, whether personal, judicial or 
political. Yours, etc.,

Warsaw, ]S". Y., August 7, 1896. 
Truman L. Stone, Esq., Yarysburg, N. Y. : 

Dear Nephew — Kindly accept the following as a 
brief response to your letter of recent date, asking me 
to give you some characteristics of your father and 
grandfather. 

My recollections of Reuben Stone are very clear 
and distinct. He was a typical pioneer of New Eng- 
land birth, who brought into the wilderness of West- 
ern New York, a sturdy independence of character; 
that patient industry, which changed the unbroken 
forest into fruitful fields; and that love for every good 
institution, which made him a faithful, active sup- 
porter of schools, the Christian church, and every 
other organized effort to educate and elevate the race. 
He was a man of independent thought — one who 
formed his own opinions, and believed most implicitly 
in the correctness of his own conclusions. By his 
industry, frugality and good management, he achieved 
success in his chosen occupation. As a neighbor, he 
was kind and generous, and in his family, loved and 
venerated. His second wife was sister to my mother, 
and as his farm joined that of my father, the relations 
of the two families were quite close and intimate. In 
olden times he was a whig in politics, and for years 
Truman Lewis and Reuben Stone were elected over- 
seers of the poor for the town of Orangeville on the 
same ticket. In many ways your father, Harvey 
Stone, resembled his father, Reuben. He was per- 
haps somewhat more social, a man of wider acquain- 
tance, and more inclined to keep step with modern 
methods, and one whose mental vision took in a 
wider sweep. Like him he was a man of positive 
convictions touching all questions, and he always 



MEMORANDA. 



GENEALOGY OF THE STONE FAMILY. 131 

stood ready to maintain them fearlessly. He married 
my sister, Eliza, on her twentieth birthday, and 
together with brave hearts, and strong and tireless 
hands, they commenced to carve out their fortunes. 
In this respect, like your grandfather, they -were 
reasonably successful. They acquired a modest inde- 
pedence, not by a skillful shufhiug of financial cards, 
but by an intelligent use of the means at hand, and 
by a determined tireless industry. 

Harvey Stone held several important town offices. 
If I remember correctly he was at different times 
high way commissioner, justice of the peace, and 
supervisor; and at least for one term, he was 
called by the electors of Wyoming County to the 
office of sessions justice. You certainly can look back 
upon your ancestry with pride. 

"While such men's names are not always written 
in flaming characters on historic pages, it is neverthe- 
less true that in more respects than one, their lives 
are heroic. When we recall their limitations, and 
remember their interest in others, and their labors 
freely given for others, as well as their successful 
struggles against every obstacle standing between 
them and their hope, we may well apply to their 
lives, these words of Wordsworth: 

"Life I repeat is energy of love, 
Divine or human; exercised in pain, 
In strife, and tribulation ; and ordained 
If so approved and sanctified, to pass 
Through shades and silent rest, to endless joy." 
Yours truly, 

S. D. LEWIS.

the World's International Homeopathic Congress held 
at Atlantic City in 1801.
