ALBANY, N. r. 



6^, ^^7 



It was not until late in life that the compiler of this work 
became aware of the importance of such an undertaking 
and addressed himself to the task ; stimulated solely with 
the aim and purpose of rescuing from oblivion the history of 
his worthy ancestors, whose useful lives and honored names, 
but for which, in a few more revolving years would inevit- 
ably have become almost unknown to their descendants. 

On entering upon the work it very soon became apparent 
that it had already been too long neglected, and often, 
when soliciting information relative to the early families, 
the reply would be, ^' We have no written account ;" and 
those who a few years ago could have furnished a full and 
accurate history have died and left no one possessed of the 
desired information. 

While as a nile the writer takes pleasure in acknowledg- 
ing the generous assistance of hundreds of those to whom 
he has applied for information (without which it would 
have been impossible to have produced such a work), still 
there have been those who, recreant to the claims of com- 
mon politeness, have failed to take any notice of his cor- 
respondence, and in a few cases, when called on, have met 
the subject with indifference and its representative with a 
marked lack of courtesy and good breeding — a characteris- 
tic foreign to the Bouton- Bough ton race ; and such are 
accounted unworthy the honor of a place in this history, 
though they may bear our name; in feelings and disposition 
they are not of us. Doubtless many whose names will be 
sought for in this collection will not be found, for the rea- 
son that those of their relatives who were applied to for the 
account totally neglected to give it, or even give the name 
and address of such persons known to them who could have 
furnished the information. 

Not the least of the difficulties the compiler of this book 
encountered, was the question of means to meet the expense 
of its publication. 'Had he been possessed of sufficient 
means to afford it, he would have deemed it a pleasure to 

have presented to every one bearing the name, a bound 
volume as a free gift ; but as that was not the case, it was 
decided to undertake the publication by subscription, and 
in order to bring the price within the means of as large a 
number as possible he decided to furnish the entire manu- 
script, ready for the printer, gratuitously — the estimated 
cost of which, in time and money, was Three thousand dol- 
lars. And then came the difficulty of finding a publisher 
who would undertake such a risk. It was hoped that, with 
this inducement, the relatives would order at least two 
hundred volumes, which, with the bare expense of paper, 
printing and binding, the cost to them would not exceed 
five dollars per volume ; and this was made the basis of an 
agreement between the publishers and the subscribers, in 
case enough should subscribe to warrant the publishers to 
undertake the execution of the work. Circulars were sent 
out to over a thousand whose address had been furnished, 
but it was about two years before enough had sent in their or- 
ders to secure the publishers against loss in issuing the book. 

The time consumed in the correspondence, traveling and 
writing and transcribing the MSS. covered a space of over 
' six years. As before stated the compiler could not afford 
to give up his business and devote his whole time to it ; the 
work was done mostly at night, with an average of about 
five hours for five nights each week, seldom leaving his 
work until after twelve o'clock at night ; and though 
exhaustive, it never became burdensome, cheered on with 
the hope that his labor of love would be by many appreci- 
ated, and that by what he has done some successor may be 
stimulated to continue the work through the ages to come. 

Before closing this address the writer would humbly 
acknowledge his indebtedness to a kind providence that, 
though advanced in years, neither health nor sight has been 
impaired by the extraordinary^ strain put upon them ; and 
special mention he feels ought to be made of those who 
have rendered laborious and valuable assistance in collect- 
ing the material for this genealogy, a list of which will be 
found on another page. Affectionately yours,

*I!bB following autograph of John Bouton, the first of the 
family name in this country, was written March 25/ 1671, 
and was attached to a statement of his, on a deed. It 
shows that the name was originally Bouton, and not 
Boughton, as some have supposed. 

1890 - 


T is claimed that the Bouton-Boughton race has a 
traditional record or history, dating back to the 
Fifth Century, when ancient history tells us that 
clans or tribes of Gauls inhabited the country 
bordering on the river Rhone, and extending from Lake 
Geneva to the Mediterranean Sea, but that they were more 
particularly identified with the Visigoth clan, the head of 
the Salian tribe under King HiJderi, A. D. 481, who at his 
death left his son Cluvis, king of the tribo. 

From this period, during the reign of Clovis, wars for 
conquest were of frequent occurrence ; the Franks from the 
north making attacks upon the southern Gauls, were suc- 
cessfully resisted by Clovis, and Syragrius, a Roman 
usurper, was defeated and his people subjugated by Clovis, 
who made himself popular with his subjugated subjects 
by favoring their bishops, and by marrying Holihelde 
(Clotilde), the niece (or as some historians say) the daughter 
of the King of Burgundy, a Christian. 

Clovis promised his wife that if her God, whose aid he 
invoked during the battle of Tolbiac, should give him suc- 
cess, then he would embrace her religion, which he subse- 
quently did and was baptized into the Christian faith, and 
his example was generally followed by his people. 

The ancient Bouton Shield, or Coat of Arras, had the 
following motto on a ground work of perpendicular lines : 
**De Gules i la Fasce d'Or," which is old French, and 
translators say implies ''a force as of a Leopard when it 
attacks with its red mouth open."

vi Introduction. 

To the Dictionnaire des Qeneratix FrancaiSj the com- 
pfler is indebted for the following account which was fur- 
nished by Wm, S. Bouton, Esq., of South Norwalk, Ct. 

"Prom A. D. 1350, the military and court records abound 
with the Bouton name for two centuries. Nicholas Bouton, 
who bore the title of Count Charailly, Baron Montague de 
Naton, born, as is supposed, about 1580 and was the father 
of Harard and John (who were twins), and Noel Bouton, 
who were Huguenots and refugees during the violent per- 
secutions of the Protestants by the Boman Catholics during 
the predominance of the Guises in France, at which time 
many were slaughtered and many escaped to the fastnesses 
of the surrounding mountains where subsistence was almost 
impossible. At length the intolerence of the Roman Cath- 
olic bigots was overcome and the refugees, many, returned, 
among whom was the aforesaid Boutons. Noel distin- 
guished himself and was the Marquis de Chamilly, and was 
subsequently made Marshal of all France, and a life size 
portrait of him was placed in the gallery of French nobles 
at Versailles, France, where it is still to be seen. 

" The French historian speaking of the Boutons says that 
it is accorded to a noble ancestry that a proclivity for 
patriotism, education and religion is seen in the race all 
down the ages." 


1. JOHN BOUTON, son, as is supposed, of the Count 
Kicholas Bouton, was a Huguenot and during the existence 
of the great persecution fled to England, where the Govern- 
ment were offering to send emigrants to America, on con- 
dition they would swear allegiance to the Crown of England, 
A registry of such emigrants was keptat London, a copy of 
which has been examined by the compiler of this work, 
and as only one person by the Bouton name is found on 
that registry, embracing a period of 100 years, from 1600 to 
1700, it is supposed that said person w^as the John Bouton 
of whom this account is traced, and that all the families of 
Boutons or Boughtons in this country prior to 1700, were 
descended from said John Bouton, who embarked from 
Gravesend, England, in the barque Assurance^ July, 1636, 
and landf^ at Boston, Massachusetts, in December, 1635, 
aged 20 years; whether married or not at the time is not 

He married 1st, Joan Turney, and lived in Boston and 
Watertown, Mass., and early in the settlement of Hartford, 
Conn., moved to that place, and again in 1651, soon after 
the commencement of the settlement of Norwalk, he re- 
moved to that place, where his wife Joan soon died, and 
where he became an influential citizen, and in 1671, and 
for several years subsequent, he was a representative in 
the general court of the co ony of Connecticut, and served 
his townsmen in many official capacities in Norwalk. He 
m. 2d, at Norwalk, Ct., Jan. 1, 1656, Abigail Marvin (dau. of 
Matthew Marvin, who came from London, Eng.) She 
was born at Hartford about 1640, and died at Norwalk about 
1672. He married 3d, at Norwalk about 1673, Mrs. Mary* 
Stevenson, widow of Jonathan Stevenson, who was killed 
in a swamp fight with the Indians near Norwalk. 

He gave land to his sons John and Matthew, as appears . 
on the Norwalk town records, and at his death, which 
occurred at Danbury, Ct., 1704r-6, he left an estate at Nor- 
walk, a part of which has remained in possession of his 


'descendants until the present time, July, 1888, now over 
200 years. A copy of his Will was made from the Fairfield 
record, and is herewith furnished for publication. (See 
copy of Wills.)

27, 1665. But little has been obtained of his history 
except that at his death which occurred June 27, 1665, 
he left to his wife Ruth, all his property, to be hers 
during her lifetime and then to go to John's son 
John, evidently having no children of his own at 
that time.

according to town records, he sold Jan. 25, 1693, to 
Mercy Lockwood, widow of Ephraim Lockwood. 
The town records of Danbury contains records of his 
conveyance of lands at that place, and the records 
of New Canaan state that he, together with John Jr.,

after the burning by the British of the old Episcopal church 
edifice of that place in time of the war. 


The beneficient endowment/ and dedication to the worship 
of God of the Episcopal church of the Holy Cross, Troy, 
N. Y., by Mrs. Mary Warren, is said to be the outcome of a 
Saturday afternoon sewing society for little girls estab- 
lished by his mother, Mrs. rhebe Bouton Warren, early in 
the present century. Nathan Warren was a vestryman of 
St. Paul's church, Troy, and a liberal benefactor of the 
same. Whitney Genealogy says of Mrs. Mary Warren : *'She 
built and endowed in 1844 the beautiful church of the Holy 
Cross, in Troy, N. Y., as a house of prayer for all people 
without money and without price ; she also supported 
throughout her life a free school for girls, which has been 
continued by her sons and is known as the Mary Warren 
Free Institute. He died Aug. 13, 1834 ; she died Feb. 8, 
1859. "

The following from a Troy newspaper : 

** Eleazer A. Peck, who died at Troy, N. Y., on Sunday- 
last, was the son of Dr Daniel Peck, and a lineal descend- 
ant of William Pexjk, one of the founders of New Haven. 
He was born at West Staff ord, Ct., on D3cemb3r 15, 18L5, 


and there received a common school education. At sixteen 
years of age he became a clerk in a dry goods store in Hart- 
ford and was subsequently a clerk in a jobbing house in 
New York city. In 1837, after the great fire in New York, 
he returned to Hartford, and was engaged in the cotton 
trade, and afterwards in the flour trade. He married Lucy 
E. Wildman, of Hartford, in 1839, and removed to Troy in 
1845, where he ever after resided. In 1848 he, with Joseph 
Hillman, his partner, under the name of Peck & Hillman, 
accepted the general agency of the Connecticut Mutual Life 
Insurance company, controlling the whole business of that 
company in the state of New York excepting the city of 
New York. During the time they have been the agents of 
that company it is said they have sent to the office of the 
company in Hartford $20,000,000. Mr. Peck's life was in- 
sured for $35,000. He had three children, all of whom sur- 
vive him : Mre. Amasa R. Moore, of Lansingburgh, N. Y., 
Wm. A. Peck, a civil engineer, of Denver, Col., and Alfred 
6. Peck, of Cohoes, N. Y. His widow also survives him. 
He was next to the youngest of a lar^e family of children. 
Elisha Peck, formerly of Hartford, Daniel A. Peck, of Elling- 
ton, who survives him, and Dr. E. D. Peck, of Perrysburgh, 
Ohio, were his brothers. Mrs. Aholiob Johnson, late of 
Enfield, Mrs. H. A. Hamilton, of Somers, and Mrs. Henry 
P. Averill were among his sistera, Mrs. Hamilton and Mrs. 
Averill surviving him. His character was that of a most 
sincere, simple and lovable Christian, and he carried sun- 
shine wherever he went, and will be long missed by those 
who knew him best."

Note. — Hon. Jay H. Boughton, being an ardent advocate

1888, for the office of attorney-general of Colorado. 

Personal note by one familiar with all the details : 

" Jay H. Boagbton was born at Moravia, Cayuga Co., N. Y., Dec. 38, 1649, 
and received his primary and classical education at the public school and 
academy there, and at Groton, Tompkins Co., N. Y. He studied law in the 
office of Wm. W. Hare, Groton, Tompkins Co., N. Y., and Bouton & Chap- 
lain, Cortland, N. Y., where he finished his legal studies, and was admitted to 
the bar June 8, 1870. at the general term of the Supreme Court at Binghamton, 
N. Y. Practiced law two years in Cortland, and then removed to Fort Col- 
lins, Larimer Co., Col., where he has resided till present writing, about Gfleea 
years, during which time he has held offices of responsibility and trust, 
embracing county attorney, county Judge six years, president of the board of 
education for ten years, and alderman and member of city council six yean.

The following article, clipped from the Fort Collins " Courier," tells of the 
estimate in which Hon. Jay H. Boughton is held by his townsmen : 

" That the people of Fort Collins, Col., appreciate Judge Boughton's zeal- 
ous efforts in behalf of the schools, was happily demonstrated at the school 
elecUon held on Monday last, when he received all the votes cast for president 
of the school board. It was a handsome compliment to a competent and most 
worthy official. There are few men, comparatively speaking, who possess all 
th«^ requirements of a first-class school officer. Judffe Boughton has repeat- 
edly demonstrated that he is one of that few, a fact that the people recognize 
ana fully appreciate. Though disinclined for personal reasons to serve an- 
other term, he gracefully yielded to the urgent and earnest solicitation of 
friends and patrons of the school and consented to the use of his name for 

MS' IL Personal Notes of Clark Boughton (son of John W. and Sarah 
Henry Boughton), b. Preble, Cortland Co., N. T., July 29, 1851. He received 
a public school and academic education at Locke, Cayuga Co., N. Y., and at 
Groton, Tompkins Co., N. T., after which he learned printing and was for 
several years foreman of the GarUand County Demoerat. His health being 
poor, in 1871 he went west and remained nearly a year at Omaha, Neb., where 
he worked at his trade and studied law, and on account of continued ill health 
was compelled in 1873 to leave Omaha, and went to Colorado. He soon after 
settled at Fort Collins, where, seeing a prospect of rapid devel pment, he 
established The Fart CoUiiu Standard^ a weekly newspaper, in which he met 
with great success. Being himself a luminous writer, he was popularly recog- 
nized among the brilliant writers of his profession. He was elected super- 
intendent of public schools, which office he held until he died. He raised the 
standing of the public schools of the county to a degree they had never 
before attained, and inaugurated the system of teachers^institutos, the first in 
the state. Afflicted with asthma and rheumatism from childhood, his im- 
paired health broke down under the pressure of his intense application and 
effort, and he died at Fort Collins, Colorado, Oct. 26, 1874, having, by almost 
superhuman effort, resisted the inevitable culmination of his diseases for years ; 
by which it was felt that one of the brightest lights of Colorado had gone out 
at his death.

(vii.) James Albert Bouton, sou of Ira and Catharine 
Bouton, b. Jefferson, N. Y., Nov. 10, 1834. At the age 
of 18 he became interested in the whale fisheries, and 
sailed from New Bedford, Oct. 1853, on the ship Levi 
Starbuck, commanded by Capt. Jernigan, of Nan- 
tucket, for a voyage of three and a half years. Land- 
ing at the Cape Verde Islands, they doubled Cape Horn, 
touched at Talcahuana, Chili, and the Sandwich Islands, 
and spent the summer cruising for whales in the Osh- 
kosh Sea. In the faU they returned to the Sandwich 
Islands, and having obtained a supply of water and 
fruits, cruised during the winter in tne Southern Ocean, 
stopping for a time at the Marquesas Islands. The sec- 
ond year was a repetition of the first, but returning the 
third time to the Oshkosh Sea and not meeting with 
satisfactory success, they made their way through 
Behring Strait to the Arctic Ocean. Here again they 
were disappointed ; but returning to the Gulf of Ana- 



dir, on the Siberian coast, they found plenty of whales, 
and soon secured a cargo of oil and whalebone. One 
whale captured here yielded 224 barrels and 19 gallons 
of oil. Homeward bound they touched at the Sand- 
wich Islands, Society Islands, and Friendly Islands, 
and arrived at New Bedford in the spring of, 1857. In 
this voyage he experienced all the vicissitudes and suf- 
fered all the hardships incident to a seafaring life, and 
proved himself so competent and hardy a sailor, that 
several fine positions were offered him. Among nar- 
row escapes from icebergs and starvation and other 
innumerable accidents, his boat was once dashed in 
pieces by a whale and he and his companions were com- 
pelled to remain on a cake of ice until so benumbed as 
to be unable to stand. He declined the choice of seve- 
ral flattering positions, and took up his residence at 
Flowerfield, St. Joseph Co., Mich., where he married 
Elvira Bassett. By her he had one child— 9IS 

924* Cora Emergene Bouton, who was born Oct. 26, 1864, 
and died at Three Rivers, Dec. 2, 1870. But new expe- 
riences awaited him. In a letter dated May 26, 1861, 
he says: *' There is considerable excitement now-a- 
days about our country's welfare, and I think it is about 
time something was done." With this spirit he enlisted, 
Aug. 24, 1861, as Sergeant in Co. G., 11th Michigan 
Infantry Volunteers. He took part in a lar^e number 
of battles and heavy skirmishes, serving chiefly along 
the valleys of the Cumberland and the Tennessee. 
Among the most important engagements were those 
at Stone River, Tullahoma, Chickamauga, Lookout 
Mountain, Dallas, Kenesaw Mountain, Marietta and 
Atlanta. At the battle of Stone River he narrowly 
escaped death, receiving a wound in the head. At the 
battle of Missionary Ridge he was left in command of 
his company and the next night made a charge by 
which he captured 200 prisonei-s, four guns and two 
caissons. For six months he retained the command of 
the company. He refused a commission, however, and 
at the end of three years returned to his family, having 
been in the meantime sent on recruiting service for a 
few months Taking up his residence at Three Rivers, 
he has been chosen to various public offices. He was 
marshal in 1878-79, a member of the city council in 
1884 and 1886, and in 1887 held the office of supervisor 
of Lockport township. His first wife having died, he 



married for a second wife Mrs. Josie S. Arnold, of Three 
Rivers, by whom he has one son — 918

924* Eugene Bouton, A.M., Ph.D , was bom at Jeflferson, 
Schoharie Co., N. Y., Dec. 6, 1850. His primary and 
intermediate education was received in the public schools 
of Jeffei-son, and his preparation for college was ob- 
tained chiefly at Oazenovia Seminary, Cazenovia, N. Y., 
where he secured numerous prizes for proficiency in 
his several studies. After a course at Yale College, in 
which he excelled especially in composition and oratory, 
he was graduated in 1875, being the class poet, and 
having received during the course, sevei^ honors of a 
similar character. After teaching for two years at the 
Norwich Academy, Norwich, N. i., and then for three 
years at Sherburne, N. Y., as principal of the union 
school, he was elected Professor of the English Lan- 
gua^ and Literature in the Albany Academy at Albany . 
N. Y., which position he retainea for three and a hair 
years. In the spring of 1881 he was elected Professor 
of History and English Literature in the College of 
Charleston at Charleston, S. C, but decided to remain 
at Albany. After studying poetry under Prof. H. A. 
Beers, he received the degree of M.A. from Yale Col- 
lege, in 1881. During the summer of 1881 he traveled 
in Great Britain and France, for the pupose of obtain- 
ing information concerning his favorite studies, and in 
1-882 he received the degree of Ph.D. from Syracuse 
University, on an examination in EngUsh Literature. 
On the first of January, 1884,- he was appointed by the 
State Superintendent of Public Instruction a member 
of the Institute Faculty of the State of New York, and 
served thereon two years, until he was appointed 
Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction, in Janu- 
ary, 1886, and shortly afterwards Principal of the State 
Normal and Training School at New Paltz, Ulster Co., 
N. Y. During the autumn of 1884, he published, in 
connection with Prof. James Johonnot, a work on ele- 
mentary physiology and hygiene, entitled '• How We 
Live ; or the Human Body, and How to take Care of 
It." D. Appleton & Co., New York. He has also pub- 
lished various papers on educational and other topics,

(iv.) Bennett Ai Bouton, M.D., son of Wm. and 
Hannah Bouton, b.Watertown, Ct., Aug. 14, 1801; when 
he had reached the age of six years his parents moved 
to Meredith, Del. Co., N. Y., where he received his ele- 
mentiary education, which was supplemented by a 
course at the Jeflferson Academy, at Jefferson, N. i . ; 
in 1828 he graduated in medicine at the University of 
Pennsylvania, practiced two years at Ivleredith, N. Y., 
and removed in 1830 to Tunkhannock, Pa., where he 
married Feb. 3, 1839, Martha Ann Young, daughter of 
Abijah Young, of Drake ville, N. J. , who died at Penn- 
sylvania, March, 1848 ; m. second, at Tunkhannock, 
Pa., Jan. 22, 1851, Sarah Caroline MiUer, of Madison, 
N. J., and in the autumn of 1868 he moved to 205 Penn 
avenue, Scranton, where he died Feb. 22, 1876, in his 
75th year. The more immediate cause of his death 
was attributable to exposure in professional life and ser- 
vice. At a meeting of the physicians of Scranton, the 
following resolutions were adopted, showing the high 
esteem in which he was held by the physicians of his 
locality at the time of his decease. 

Resolutions : 

'^ It is rare to see an old physician in the county who, 
for half a century, has administered to the wants of its 
inhabitants, with a kindness and skill difficult to equal 
and impossible to surpass, as witnessed in the instance 
of our departed co-working friend, Dr. Bennett Ai 

** We deplore his death and deeply sympathize with 
his family. Well known and even beloved along the 
valleys of the Susquehanna, Mehoopany and Meshop- 
pen in every house and hamlet where sickness 
encroaches, for his sterling qualities as a true gentle- 
man and a most estimable physician, and who never 
heard the call of humanity in vain, as a friend that 
never could be distrusted, we feel that the profession 
he so long honored, the community that he so long 
served, seldom meets with such a loss as is now felt in 
the death of Dr. Bouton. 


^^Resolvedy That we will attend the funeral and 
accompany the remains to his former home in Tunk- 
hannock in a body. 

^^ Resolved, That all physicians in the county be 
requested to join in the funeral of the deceased."

ing her case to officers in the army but was denied, 
as passing through the lines was prohibited. Several 
times was she refused transportation, but managed

of Portland, Conn., b. Oct. 3, 1819, d. Omaha, Oct. 
5, 1882. When he was three years old his father died 
and his mother soon removed to Norwalk, to the 
home of her father, and his childhood was passed at 
intervals at both places. When ten years of a^e his 
mother placed him in a cotton mill in the town of 
Norwalk, where he remained until thirteen years of 
age and then worked on a farm. Subsequently 
obtained a situation in a printing establishment in 
New York city, where he was compelled to go 
through the hard ordeal of "printer's devil," becom- 
ing an excellent compositor. The business was not 
congenial to him, nor was the pay sufficient for his 
living, when a half brother on his father's side, hear- 
ing of his condition, came to his relief, gave him a 
home, sent him to school until a good education was 
obtained, then procured for him a situation in a dry- 
goods store, where he remained until twenty-one. A 
merchant of New York then offered him a stock of 
goods in partnership, and North Carolina was to be 
the field for operations, under his management. He 
sailed for Wilmington in 1843, and settled at Strick- 
land's Depot, on the Wilmington and Weldon rail- 
road, about forty five miles from W. This venture 
was a success and at the end of two years his partner 
sold out to him. He remained there three years 
longer, then went, 1848, to Wilmington, N. C, and 
opened business as a wholesale grocer, exporter of 
cotton and naval stores, which soon became extensive 
and profitable ; so that he retired from business in 


1856 and returned to New York. That year he trav- 
eled much in the west, and in the autumn arrived at 
Omaha, Neb., settled there, and remained there till 
late in the year 1859. At this time he visited Wil- 
mington, and was induced to go into business there 
again. He was meeting with great success when the 
civil war broke out and ne was obliged to leave there 
secretly because of his loyaltv to the Union, and his 
property was confiscated by the Confederate govern- 
ment. He then came north by the way of Washing- 
ton, gave valuable information to the government, 
received the thanks of Secretary Salmon P. Chase, 
and returned to New York again without fortune. 
With friends he then engaged in the petroleum oil 
speculation. In the spring of 1870 he resettled in 
Omaha, where he now, 1887, resides. 

In 1837 Mr. Gwyer was author of a pamphlet on 
the cotton manufactories of New England and con- 
tended that they were no better than negro slavery. 
In North Carolina, there being no postoflRce nearer 
than ten miles from the place he had chosen to settle 
in, he made immediate application to Government 
for a postoffice, which was soon granted and he was 
appointed postmaster. He held the office four years, 
and by his business and enterprise the place rapidly 
grew to a town. It was named Magnolia, of which 
he may well be called the founder. In 1858 he was 
a member of the territorial legislature of Nebraska, 
the author of numerous statutes, was appointed at a 
mass meeting of the citizens of Omaha, a committee 
to memorialize Congress on the subject of a conti- 
nental railroad to the Pacific ocean. This was so 
thoroughly done the memorial was sent to every 
member of Congress and to the governors of all the 
States. It was commended by public men and the 
press, as an able memorial, and it did much to influ- 
ence the legislation which culminated in the construc- 
tion of the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific 
railroads. In 1859 he was an alderman of the city of 
Omaha, in 1873 a member of the Nebraska State 
Senate, was elected president of that body, ex officio 
lieutenant-governor, and for a time acting governor 
of the State ; became in 1875 editor of the Omaha 
Republican^ the leading republican paper in the State, 
was, 1876, member of the Constitutional Convention, 
and as chairman of the committee on engrossed bilis^ 


received the thanks of the convention. In 1880 was 
vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce, mem- 
ber of the Board of Education, and has held other 
honorable positions.

years and two months. The funeral took place on 


Monday afternoon at the house of Mr. Asahel 
Dickerman. The Rev. H. N. Dunning, her former 

Eastor, delivered an excellent address founded on 
luke ii. 25-41, and gave a very interesting sketch 
of the life of deceased. He descril)ed her as being of 
Huguenot extraction and having been a faithful 
member of the Congregational church for seventy- 
seven years. Her husband was a hat manufacturer 
sixty years and more ago, on the shore where the 
steamboat dock is now located. She had been a

Bouton), was bom at Norwalk, Conn., June 20, 1799. On 
the authority of an Autobiography published by his son, 
John Bell Bouton, of the Journal of Commerce^ New York, 
it is learned that Nathaniel Bouton, the subject of this 
record, attended school at Noi^walk, and at the age of nine 
years was so proficient in the rudimentary branches that 
the teacher frequently sent other scholars to him to be 
assisted in their studies. As grammar and geography were 
not at that time taught in the district schools, he studied 
the rudiments of English grammar, with but little, if any. 


more assistance than that obtained from a book called 
''Murray's Abridgement." Between the ages of thirteen 
and fourteen he began to think of learning a trade. An 
advertisement appearing in his father's newspaper, Bepubli- 
can Farmer, of Bridgeport, for a boy to learn the printing 
business, he at once resolv^ to ask his father to allow him 
to go and learn that trade, to which he readily consented, 
and the lad was regularly apprenticed by his father to Stiles 
Nichols, proprietor of the Aepublican Farmer^ for seven 
years. A strong attachment mutually grew up between 
employer and employee, and soon not only his hands but 
his mental capacities were called into exercise in the work 
of conducting the paper. During the spring of 1815, spe- 
cial religious services were held in Briageport, at which, 
with many others of about his age, he attended, and became 
deeply impressed with the subject of religion ; and on the 
morning of June 20,1815, his sixteenth birthday, he resolved 
to give himself, without reserve, to the service of God ; and 
pursuing that purpose until the first sabbath in December, 
3815, he with ninety -eight others, were received into the 
First Congregational church in Bridgeport, Rev. Elijah 
Waterman, pastor. * 

During the year that followed a desire came upon him to 
preach the gospel, and consequent upon that a college edu- 
cation, and, here again the thought of four years of appren- 
ticeship to be completed, presented to his mind a difficulty, 
the only solution of whicn, that seemed practicable was, to 
purchase his unexpired time of his employer, which was 
done for $175.00 ; his father raising the amount by the sale 
of some land and the help of a friend ; thus securing a 
release and a cancellation of the indentures. 

In the month of September, 1816, he left Bridgeport and 
returned home to study and prepare to enter college, when 
an invitation came from the Rev. Mr. Bonney, pastor of the 
Congregational church at New Canaan, to attend the acad- 
emy there and which (board and tuition) was offered free. 

Again an invitation was received and accepted to attend 
a school at Wilton, taught by Mr. Hawley Olmstead, under 
whose instruction he was fitted for and entered Yale college 
in 1818, in a class of eighty-two ; and though deprived of 
advantages that others enjoyed he kept abreast with his- 
competitors in his class, never having received a reprimand, 
or reproof during his college course. 

Graduating at Yale in the summer of 1820, he visited and' 
labored in a religious revival work at Hotchkistown, two 
miles from New Haven, and on the opening of the terra at 


Andover Theological seminary he was ready to enter upon 
a theological course, during which, as in college, he never 
declined any service required of him or lost any time by 
reason of ill health. 

After delivering the valedictory he was met by a com- 
mittee from Boston, to whom he engaged to commence his 
ministerial work in a new church m Boston, agreeing to 
remain for three months. Very soon after he was met by 
Mr. Fletcher, from Concord, N. H., who presented a call 
from the Congregational church of Concord, dated Jan. 1, 
1825, to become their pastor. On a careful deliberation his 
mind was at last settled, and on Jan. 29, 1825, he penned 
his formal acceptance of the call. On or about January 25, 
1825, he was on his way by stage to attend the funeral of 
the wife of Hon. Wm. Bartlett, at Newbury port, when, in 
conversation on the subject of missions in the west, with 
Aaron Foster and Hiram Chamberlain, the thought flashed 
upon his mind of a need of a national missionary society, 
which was discussed, and was doubtless the germ from 
which sprung the organization of the American Home Mis- 
sionary Society, which came into existence in New York, 
May 12, 1826. 

The ordination of Mr. Nathaniel Bouton took place accord- 
ing to appointment, at the court house at Concord, in the 
presence of a large assemblage of ministers and delegates, 
on March 22, 1825. 

From the ordination until its fifty-third anniversary, 
Dr. N. Bouton administered his sacred trust at Concord, 
with a singular equipoise and acceptability, never neglecting 
the obligations which he owed to the church as its pastor, 
but by great energy and industry accomplished a vast 
amount of work on historical and literary topics, which 
from time to time was rewarded by positions of distinction 
and honor, the recorded acknowledgments of which will 
b^tr the memory of his useful life to many generations. 

After a short illness, which was endured with great com- 
posure and confident trust, he peacefully departed this life 
on the 6th day of June, 1878, in the seventy-ninth year of 
bis age. 

To return to his family history, he was married, first, at 
Lebanon, Conn., Sept. 11, 1825, with Harriet Sherman, 
daughter of John Sherman, of Trenton, N. Y., and great 
grand-daughter of Roger Sherman of Conn. She died at 
Concord, May 21st, 1828. 

He married second at Chester, N. H., June 8, 1829, Mary 
Ann P. Bell, eldest daughter of Gov. John Bell, of Chester, 


N. H. She lived and died at Concord, N H., Feb. 15, 1839. 
He married, third, at Deerfield, N. H., Feb. 18, 1840, 
Elizabeth Ann Cilley, eldest daughter of Horatio G. Cilley, 
of Deerfield, N. H. They continued to live at Concord, 
New Hampshire, until his death. She died Feb. 6, 1887.

tions to its support, at one time giving $300, which in those 
days was a large sum; and often mentioned in its history, 
as an active and Uberal contributor to its needs, especially 
at the time the meeting-house was burned by King George's 
invaders, in 1779, when by the prompt and liberal action of 
a few self-sacrificing members the means were secured and 
the house rebuilt the following year. After a long and 
useful life he died at Norwalk, May 27, 1821, aged ninety-

George B. Bouton, b. Troy, N. Y., April 27, 1828. At 
the age of nine years he was placed at the Episcopal board- 
ing school under the rector of the church previously alluded 
to, through whom his father had been defrauded and iniined 
and for which the said rector was deposed from the min- 

George remained three or four yeai-s at school, until the 
failure of his father, when he left and went into the hard- 
ware store of his Uncle Bradley, as clerk. At the end of 
three years of faithful service with his Uncle Bradley he 
went to New York city, where he obtained a position 
in the large establishment of E. Corning & Co., where he 
remained four fears. 




George accompanied his father when he moved to New 
Haven, and began to study medicine under Dr. Charles 
Hooker, professor of anatomy in Yale college. In Janu- 
ary, 1866, he graduated at Yale, and in March of the same 
year at New York Medical college. 

He had, even before graduating, received the appointment 
of examining physician and deputy coroner, and on gradu- 
ating immediately entered upon the duties of the office ; 
this position was held for three terms of three years each, 
except about one year which was spent as surgeon to Gen. 
Walter's troops m Nicaragua, with headquarters at St. 
George's and Eivas. 

In 1865, Dr. Bouton removed to Westport, Ct., where he 
has had his residence till the summer of 1888. 

In his profession Dr. Bouton takes a high stand, as an 
evidence of which, the fact is adduced that on one occasion 
in New York city he invalidated a will involving over two 
hundred thousand dollars, bj^ his examination of a body 
and introducing for the first time in legal annals, portions 
of the body which had been luried nine months, to illustrate 
testimony in a civil suit. For this Dr. Bouton received a fee 
of three thousand doUars. For years Dr. Bouton has been 
medical examiner for several life insurance companies, and 
is also a member of the Fairfield county and Connecticut 
medical societies. 

In 1861 he married Mary Frances, daughter of Andrew 
C. Nash, of Westport, where she was born Feb. 26, 1837, 
Dr. Bouton is both a Freemason and Odd Fellow, in many 
of whose lodges he has held prominent offices. Both he and 
his wife are Episcopalians, he having been vestryman in 
Christ church at Westport for fifteen years. Personally 
Dr. Bouton is social and is held in high esteem by a large 
circle of acquaintances and one of Westport's most valued 
citizens .

Kind and obliging, ever ready to lend a helping hand when 
occasion reguired, attending strictly to his own business, 
without unduly interesting himself in the affairs of others, 
a stranger to dishonesty, and loyal as a citizen, although 
never prominent as a public man, nevertheless, he was m 
his day and generation among the foremost of the common 
people. He possessed in an eminent degree the qualities 
and the virtues, which go to make the true man, ana which 
are evermore recognized and acknowledged, whether they 
appear in the character of the humblest individual, or the 
most distinguished citizen. 

The respect and esteem in which he was held were shown 
in the large attendance at his funeral, which took place at 
the South Salem Presbyterian Church on Tuesday after-

The following interesting account was furnished by Mr, 
Samuel Bouton, grandson of the subject of the narrative, 
who has the original manuscript m his possession at 
Winston, Daviess county, Mo.: 

My grandfather Daniel, son of Nathaniel Bouton, was 
born 1740 and died 1819. He was elected a deacon of the 
Congregational church at New Canaan, Conn., June 10, 
1797, wnich office he held until his death. 

He took an active part in the war of the Revolution and 
was the captain of a body of citizen soldiers called minute 
men, similar to our home guard during the war of the 
rebellion. They were called minute men from the fact that 
they were expected to shoulder their muskets and march 
at once, at the firing of a musket as an alarm that the 
British were approaching. They were composed of men 
not subject to military duty to the government, but form- 
ing themselves into a mihtary organization for the protec- 
tion of the community against the raids of the tories then 
rendezvousing on Long Island. 

In the month of May, 1781, a party of British troops- 
came over from Long Island and landed at a place called 
Campo Point (now Coscobb) and marched into tne country 
plundering inhabitants and burning the towns of Nor walk, 
Fairfield and Danbuiy. 

Capt. Daniel Bouton called out his men to oppose the 
advance of the British troops who had landed at a place 
some distance from the place where the town of Norwalk 
now stands, called Campo Point, and was so near that a 
shot fired from the British vessel over the heads of their 
troops fell like rain upon the force under Captain Daniel 

BouTON-BouGHTON Familt. 147 

Bouton. A grape shot (a ball weighing a quarter of a 
pound) struck Capt. Bouton on his shoulder and penetrated 
about six inches. The wound made him a cripple for life, 
for which he drew a pension from the government as long 
as he Uved. The said ball was for many years in the 
possession of the old captain's son Aaron, who some years 
ago gave it to Andrus P. Bouton, who at that time lived at 
Oxford, N. Y. 

Captain Daniel Bouton sent a memorial to the Connecti- 
cut legislature, of which the following was copied : 

Upon the memorial of Capt. Daniel ^outon,»of Stamford, 
showing to this assembly that on the 30th day of May, last, 
a party of the enemy from Long Island landed at Campo 
and marched into the country plundering the inhabitants 
of their goods and cattle, and that on the intelligence 
thereof he immediately mustered his company and marched 
to Campo to oppose and repel the enemy. When in an 
engagement with the enemy he received a wound in the 
left shoulder by a large grape shot from the enemy, and 
that by said wound he lay several weeks dangerously ill, 
which was attended with considerable expense in nurses, 
doctors, ete. That he has lost the use of his arm by said 
wound and been rendered unable to labor for the support 
of himself and family, praying for relief, etc. Whereupon, 

Resolved, By this assembly, that the said Capt. Daniel 
Bouton receive out of the treasury of this State the sum 
of sixty-five pounds lawful money, in consideration of his 
lost time and expenses already occasioned by said wound, 
and that the committee of pay table draw on the treasury 
for payment of the same out of the two shilling and six 
penny tax record passed on the above. The above was 
granted. Jehiel Strong.

Toledo Bladey which position she had held for many 
years and still held in 1887. She also wrote works 
on health and beauty for women which were pub- 
lished, and one on etiquette which was nearly ready 
for publication at the time of this writing, beside 
pamphlets, all of which won for her an enviable 
reputation as a writer of books as well as for the 
newspaper press. Her residence was at Toledo, Ohio, 
1887, where her mother made her home with her. 

To the Editor: 

The following of a well-known lady writer app^atvd in 
the Toledo Sunday Journal of Jan. 23, 1887. Should you 


find it of sufficient interest to reprint, may I request that 
you send me a marked copy of issue containing same 

Yours truly,

Toledo, Ohio. Sunday Journal. 

Up one, two, three, four flights of stairs, or^ up a dismal 
elevator designed for freight, and that insistent on its 
avocation that you mentally apologize for intruding, and 
then desist from any apology for fear you will tip off into 
unknown space ; either way brings you to the top of the 
new Blade building and lands you nearly at the room 
labeled ^^ Household Editor." Entering, you meet the 
olnect of this sketch, Miss Emily S. Bouton, editor of the 
** Household," the *' Saturday Salad" and the "Home 
Talk" columns of the Daily Blade: author of ** Social 
Etique|;t6," "Health and Beauty," and other works more or 
less directly relating to women. She is not only an adept 
in this class of writing, which has been chiefly instrumental 
in establishing her fame, but is also an expert in all classes 
of newspaper work; she can not only write a heavy 
editorial but can put it in type properly, and read and 
correct the proof. You meet as you enter, a lady who 
greets you with a pleasant smile, and in a particularly 
charming voice — ^a voice pitched in just that key that one 
unconsciously feels is as perfect in the sick room as in 
the ordinary work of life — bids you welcome. Miss 
Bouton is — well, perhaps thirty, you know a man can't 
safely guess on a woman's age, and I may not be right, 
but never mind, if you looked into those kindly eyes you 
would not be interested in the age question, but the rather 
be charmed with the lady. Miss B. drifted from school 
teaching into journalism some years ago, and now main- 
tains, with the efforts of her pen, a pleasant home presided 
over by her aged mother, who, a very mother in Israel, is 
an inspiration to her gifted daughter. 

With wavy brown hair, of medium height and weight, 
of gracetvl figure and easy manner. Miss Bouton shows by 
her kindly face, high, broad forehead and intellectual 
countenace, the woman of culture, thought and power. 
She has a reputation extending over the entire country, 
and her writings are quoted and read from Maine to

superior officer being absent most of the time for the follow-

ments he was appointed by rrest. Davis colonel of the 23d

was commissioned acting ensign of Neptune in the 
West Indies squadron and served through to the end 
of the war. On returning home went to New

1,680 Daniel Bouton of whom this account is compiled, 
in the absence of positive evidence of his identity, 
contemporary history and connections has led the 
writer to believe that said Daniel Bouton was the son 
of John and Mary Pettit, and born South Salem 
June 20, 1743, was brought up as a farmer and went 
early in life to a place a few miles west of Pound 
Ridge where he took up land and settled, which in 
time came to be called Bouton ville. He married 
Sarah and lived and died at Boutonville, Westchester 
county, N. Y., in the year 1S20 or thereabout. His 
descendants say he was a zealous patriot in the war 
of the Revolution and was familiarly known for 
many years as Dea. Daniel Bouton, who had an old 
chest in his house which was brought from the old 
country by the emigrant John Bouton. 

The order of the surrogate of Westchester county, 
N. Y., dated June 2, 1821, for the sale of the real 
estate of Daniel Bouton, deceased, by his son Enoch 
Bouton, administrator, being in the hands of the 
writer, so far describes said Daniel Bouton that he, 
the writer, feels justified in assuming that the said 
Daniel Bouton and Daniel the son of John as above 
are identical.

His War Record. 

After raising two companies, not having military experi- 
ence, he refused to take command. On Sept. 29, 1861, he 
was mustered into the U. S. service as second lieutenant of 
Co. D, Fifth N. Y. Volunteer Cavalry, and promoted to 
first lieutenant June 11, 1862, chosen captain of same Jan. 
30, 1863, brevet major May 4, 1866. 

His rc^ment was up the Shenandoah Valley, under Q^n. 
Banks, until Gen. Pope took command, then under him and 
with the Army of the Potomac. Until the end of the war, 
under G^ns. Kilpatrick and Sheridan . 

He was captured by a band of confederates, who were 
lying in wait to pick up horses and revolvera, July 23, 
1863, near Orleans, Va., while returning from delivering 
despatches from Gfen. Eilpatrick to the officers commanding 
the forces at Snickers Gap, Va. One man with him was 
also captured. They were released with some forty others, 
who had been picked up by ones and twos, after keeping 
them three days in the Blue Ridge mountains. 

He was next captured Oct. 10, 1863, while trying to pre- 
vent Stewart's cavalry (the advance of Gen. Lee's army) 
from crossing the river near Madison Court House, was 
taken to Ldbby Prison and remained there until May 7, 
1864 ; was then sent to Danville, Va., thence to Macon, 
Gki., thence to Charleston, S. C. The confederates then 


put their prisoners under the fire of the union guns on 
Marvin's Island, after which they were taken to Camp Sor- 
ghum, two miles back of Columbia, S. C. (Saluda Mills), 
thence to insane asylum yard in Columbia, to Charlotte,

Smith Azer Boughton (son of Azer and Elizabeth Nick- 
erson Boughton, who was the son of Jonathan and .Abigail 
Nichols Boughton). Azer was of Simsbury, Connecticut. 

Smith Azer Boughton was born in Stephentown, Rensse- 
laer Co., N. Y., . 1810. When six months old his 

parents moved to Rensselaerville, Albany Co., N. Y., where 
he was brought up as a farmer until the age of fifteen years. 
He was then sent to the academy at Cambridge, Washing- 
ton Co., N. Y., and after two years went to the university 
at Middlebury, Vt., where, in 1831, he graduated with the 
degree of M. D. The following spring ne formed a copart- 
nership with Dr. John R. Steel, or Saratoga Springs, N. Y. 
He visited New York city during the cholera epidemic to 
witness the treatment of that alarming disease, after which 
he settled at Glens Falls, N. Y., for about two years and 
then removed to Delhi, Delaware Co. , N. Y. 

In the fall of 1837 the rebellion broke out in Canada. 
Intelligence was received that the Canadians were severely 
oppressed by the home government and the elective fran- 
cnise denied to the people. The sympathies of the people 
of the northern interior of the State were excited, and, true 
to the Boughton proclivity, he joined a band of men of the 
State and went to the assistance of the oppressed Canadi- 
ans. Some reinforcements joined the allies from the United 
States, aggregating about 1,500 men, but the Canadians 
being poorly officered and undisciplined, it was apparent on 

186 BouTON-BouGHTON Familt. 

the first engagement that all depended upon the efficiency 
of the United States volunteers, who were finally compelled 
to retire to Navy Island. There Gen. Scott captured the 
whole force and sent them home, where Dr. Boughton 
arrived, in poor health and without money. 

Following his return came the intelligence of the severe 
illness of his mother and soon after news of her death. In 
1839 he removed from Delhi to Alps, Rensselaer Co., N. T., 
where he practiced his profession and in 1 840 married Mary 
E. BsLiley of that place. 

As an introduction to the eventful life which followed, it 
may be remarked that in 1614 the Dutch West India Com- 
pany made tempting offers to settlers from Amsterdam and 
other cities of Holland to settle on lands chartered to them, 
with feudal privileges, in the exercise of which, in time, 
the settlers on those lands became nothing more than feudal 
serfs, the landlords holding all judicial and legislative 

A rich jeweler of Dorp, a city in Holland, by the name 
of Killian Van Rensselaer and Jeremias, his son, purchased 
of the company six miles square, including Schodack, Poes- 
tenkill, Greenbush, and the grounds upon which the city 
of Troy and village of Lansingburgh have since been built. 
This was on the east side of the Hudson river, and also on 
the west side, six miles, exclusive of the city of Albany. 
That was all they possessed lawfully; but by becomiujg 
members of the colonial legislature, and by paying quit 
rents to the government their doubtful titles were recog- 
nized as goc^ ; and instead of six miles each side of the 
Hudson, they extended their claim to forty-eight miles in 
length and twenty-four in breadth, which extended four 
miles into Berkshire county, Mass. ; but of this they were 
not allowed to collect the rents, for whenever they attempted 
it the inhabitants drove them out. 

At the close of the revolutionary war the returned soldiers, 
who had been paid off in continental money, which was 
nearly worthless, were offered by Stephen Van Rensselaer 
the privilege to settle on his manor, with a contract to take 
a farm and have the use of it seven years without rent, 
with the understanding that at the end of said seven years 
they should have leases in perpetuity by paying a nominal 
winter- wheat rent, with no other restriction or incumbrance. 

But how great was their surprise to find in the leases 
many clauses of exactions ana obhgations, limiting the 
privilege of using and disposing of their improvements. 
Kemonstrances were useless, the poverty of the tenants 


rendering them unable to cope with the power of their 
wealthy landlords, and the exactions were yielded to as a 
necessity. On the death of Stephen Van Eensselaer, in 
1839, his heirs, who had been to Germany, returned ; and, 
supposing themselves possessed of an income equal to a 
German principality, demanded aU the arrearages paid up, 
including the extortion in the leases. At this the tenants, 
struck with consternation, assembled to consider their 
grievances and appointed a committee to wait upon their 
landlord, Stephen Van Rensselaer, Jr., who claimed as his 
the western portion of the manor. He, however, haughtily 
told them they need expect no indulgences from him, as he 
should exact all the conditions of the leases. It was at this 
period that Dr. Boughton returned from Delhi to live in 
Alps, Rensselaer county, N. Y., and found that about 
10,000 inhabitants of these leased lands, grieved with the 
intolerance of their landlords, were holding meetings to 
consider what measures to adopt for redress of their griev- 
ances. Dr. Boughton advised that the legislature be peti- 
tioned for protection against the unconstitutional exactions 
•of the landlords, under the leases. Large associations were 
formed, embracing some eight counties. 

In the autumn of 1843 he, Dr. Boughton, was chosen as 
■an agent to attend the legislature and present a petition 
from the two counties of Albany and Rensselaer and 
-exercise all his influence to have laws enacted for the relief 
of these oppressed citizens, but it seemed that the whole 
Aristocracy of the State had been enlisted on the side of 
the wealthy landlords, and the lobby was thronged with 
their lawyers employed to prevent any action, if possible, by 
the legislature in the interest of the petitioners. Eminent 
counsel were employed to furnish . legal opinions for the 
j^uidance of the committee to whom the petition had been 
referred. Able opinions in favor of the cause of the 
tenants were furnished by Gov. Briggs, of Massachusetts, 
Hon. Daniel Webster (who remarked that if he had time 
he could tear the manors into shoe strings), and Ambrose L. 
Jordan, of New York city. It was deipanded of the 
landlords they should show their title, but the presentation 
proved that discrepancies of dates existed which rendered 
their claims unfounded in law or equity. Their next move 
was to get the matter transferred to the judiciary com- 
mittee which was composed of a selection of members, 
among whom were three of the landlords' lawyers who 
l)rought in a report favoring the claim of the landlords 
under the terms of the leases. Before further action 

188 BouTON-BouGHTON Familt. 

could be taken the legislature adjourned, and the jubilant 
landlords issued a notice to the tenants to immediatelr 
come in and settle all claims or they would be ejected. It 
was then that the tenantry resolved upon similar measures 
adopted by the people of Boston when the tea was thrown 
overboard. Large forces of men completely disguised as 
Indians, were organized to prevent the forcible execution of 
the threats of the landlords; this course was only to be 
pursued until legal action could be had. This measure 
became popular with the people of these counties, embrac- 
ing a population of about 160,000 inhabitants. At the 
next session of the legislature efforts were renewed to 

Krocure an amicable adjustment of the controversy which 
ad grown to such dimensions it was feared by the govern- 
ment that a formidable insurrection would be the result. 
At this juncture the landlords instituted a secret detective^ 
system to obtain some information upon which a charge 
could be made against Dr. Boughton as a leader of the 
opposition to the enforcement or the arbitrary exactions 
of the landlords. In the month of December, 1844, Dr. 
Boughton was invited to attend a meeting for completing 
the organization of the town of Claverack, Columbia Co., 
N. Y. The meeting was lar^e, and after an address by 
Dr. Boughton and the organization by a committee, the 
meeting adjourned and the assemblage dispersed. A few 
disguised persons were leaving the room when unfortu* 
nately a pistol was discharged, taking effect in the breast 
of a lad standing at the foot of the stairs, killing him 
instantly. It was supposed at the time the shooting was 
accidental, but it was afterward believed that it was done 
by a disguised traitor and intended for Dr. Boughton who 
lingered after the departure of the assemblage to transact 
some further business. At this time the sheriff and 
district attorney arrived with a posse and demanded the 
surrender of Dr. Boughton on a charge of having destroyed 
official papers which he had taken from the sheriff. This 
not being true the demand was refused, whereupon a melee 
ensued, in which the doctor fought his wav to a building 
where he, with drawn pistol, resisted the whole force, who- 
were warned that as they had no warrant for his arrest 
they were acting contrary to law. The sheriff and district 
attornejr both promised it he would submit to arrest they 
would simply take him before a magistrate where he could 
be bailed, and that he should in no event be confined. 
Arriving at Hudson he was placed under guard and a 
deputation sent to Albany to invoke the protection of Gov. 

BouTON-BouGHTON Familt. 189 

Wright against the interposition of the doctor's friends 
who were in large numbers in the city and demanding his 
release. The people demanded that the pledge of the 
sheriff and district attorney, with regard to his release, be 
redeemed and offered bail to any amount that should be 
required, but without avail, and early in the morning 500 
troops arrived, sent by Gk)v. Wright from Albany, with 
six pieces of artillery loaded with grape with which all 
the approaches to the jail were guarded, and all communi- 
cation denied to the doctor, and he was placed in close 
confinement without the privilege of counsel. At length 
friends prevailed and obtamed counsel, and a writ of habeas 
corpus was procured from a Supreme Court commissioner, 
but through the influence of the aristocracy its service was 
arrested by Gov. Wright, who removed the judge and 
appointed a tool of his own. 

On a motion of his counsel, Ambrose L. Jordan, the 
cause was adjourned until the March term, pending which 
counsel Jordan was notified, that as the doctor was unlaw- 
fully imprisoned, if he would consent, a force of three or 
four thousand men were ready to march to his rescue, and 
would release him in spite of the State troops ; but consid- 
ering that bloodshed must result from such a course, he 
declined the offer, and the trial came on. Three weeks 
were consumed in the trial of the case, the juij being ^1 
but one for acquittal, and he a miller for the Livingstons. 
The iury was discharged, court adjourned, and the doctor 
was left in irons in an unhealthy cell. This aroused the 
indignation of the people, and a large deputation waited 
on the governor and demanded his release on bail, which, 
if deni^, would be followed by a resort to force. He was 
then removed to the common jail, where the accommoda- 
tions were better. A complete arrangement was made for 
his escape, secretly, but he, regarding such a' course as a 
tacit acknowledgment of guilt, declined to avail himself 
of it, determined to proceed according to law. So pro- 
nounced had public opinion become, the governor ordered 
bail to be received, and he was released until the next term 
of the court, some four months. During this period an 
attempt by the sheriff to sell some cattle in Delaware 
county, to satisfy a iud^ment for rent, caused a conflict 
between the deputy shenffs and the disguised men, result- 
ing in two deputies being shot. This caused a great sensa- 
tion and a general insurrection was feared. The governor 
claimed that Dr. Boughton, being the leader of this revolt, 
should be made an example of at this juncture. As the 


trial was coming on such eminent coimsel as William H. 
Seward, Joshua Spencer and many others offered their ser- 
vices without fee, Hon. Wm. H. Seward, on his way to 
court had his leg fractured by the upsetting of the stage, 
and thus the doctor was deprived or his services. There 
being no judge in that vicinity willing to try the case, 
Judge Edmonds of New York city was procured. The 
indictment was for highway robbery and stopping the 
sheriff and his posse by an armed force and taking certain 
official papers from him and burning them in his presence. 
The testimony of the prosecution was contradictory, and 
the counsel for the defense had no doubt of success, not 
knowing that large sums of money had been employed and 
the decision decided upon before the trial. The charge of 
the judge was partial and severe, and the jury returned a 
verdict of guilty. The sentence iniposed was State prison 
for life at hard labor. This was in October, 1845. 

The sheriff told Dr. Boughton's wife that he would not 
be removed to the State prison for several days, as the 
excitement was intense and fears were entertained that he 
would be forcibly taken from the sheriff ; but that same 
night he was hurried on board a steamboat, guarded by 
sixty soldiei's, and taken to his destination. There a large 
assembly awaited his arrival and again offered to set him at 
liberty in spite of the soldiers sent to guard him from 
escape ; but unwilling to cause bloodshed he yielded to the 
demands of the officers of the law. 

The power conferred by the State constitution upon the 
governor, to remove judges in case they did not obey his 
bidding, the people now saw required to be limited, as the 

i governor had so manifestly identified himself with the land- 
ord aristocracy, and exercised that power against the rights 
of a large proportion of the people of the State. 

On arriving iat the State prison Dr. Boughton was put in 
charge of the hospital of the prison, which aJttowed him many 
advantages not enjoyed by other prisoners, and an address 
was prepared by him and sent to the people, advising them to 
consolidate as a political party, irrespective of other party 
affiliations, and vote for a change of the constitution and 
for a candidate for governor who should prove faithful to 
their cause. This was done, and as a result 47,000 votes 
were cast by the friends of the oppressed tenants, and 
John Young, Esq., was elected the governor of the State 
of New Yori:, witn the assurance that the sixteen prisonei*s 
imder the sentences of the judges controlled by the late 


fovemor, in the interest of the feudal landlords, were to 
e released. 

Within one month of Gov. Young taking his seat he 
sent special messages to the prisons, and the said prisoners 
were triumphantly conveyed through the country to their 
homes amid great rejoicings and ovations on the way. 

This was in February,' 1847. Arriving at his home the 
doctor settled down to his practice to retrieve his exhausted 
fortune and enjoy his well earned tranquility, realizing 
most fully the old raaxium, "that the man who attempts 
to revolutionize and overthrow the evils of a government, 
must not expect to reap any personal advantages, but find 
all his reward in the consciousness that his efforts and 
sacrifices have resulted to the advantage of others." And 
in this case some 10,000 of these oppressed tenantry had 
by the enactments of law been released from the entailed 
exactions in their leases, and they were allowed to purchase 
and hold their estates in fee simple. 

After the lapse of forty years of return to civil life, the 
respected Dr. A. S. Boughton, and the companion of his 
youth and the faithful sharer of his trying vicissitudes and 
sufferings, still live, Januarv, 1887, at Alps, Rensselaer Co. , 
N. Y., where his home has been since 1839.

was probably b. Scotland, March 3, 1764. 

Disposing uf their farm in Danbury, Ct., some- 
where about 1794, they moved to Staatsburgh, or 
Hyde Park, N. Y., where they resided a short time ; 
thence to Schodack, Eensselaer county, N. Y., in 
1795 or 1796 ; where he purchased land on the Van 
Rensselaer manor, lying along what was afterward, 
if not then, the Boston and Albany turnpike, eight 
miles from Albany. Jennet Guffin Boughton died 
Jan. 15, 1830, Schodack, and was buried in Nassau 
(which was at first called Union Village), Rensselaer 
county, N. Y. Joseph Boughton m. second, April

24, 1840, in Schodack, and was also buried in Nassau. 
Joseph Boughton was one of the founders of the 
Presbyterian church in Nassau. At its first meeting 
he was elected and installed ruling elder in the 
church, which office he held till near the time of his 
death; always earnest, active, and conscientious in 
his religious life, church records show that he was 
always m his place in all meetings of the church 
and session. He was genial, kind and sociable in his 
family and neighborhood. His family was a family 
of singers, particularly of sacred songs. 

Joseph Boughton had one brother, Francis 
Boughton, who was settled at one time in New 
Durham, Green county, N. Y. ; his wife's name was 
Esther Stowe. They had ten children: i. James, 
ii. Edward or Lyie, iii. Clark, iv. Polly, v. Lewis, 
vi. Rebecca, vii. Ann, viii. Francis, Jr., ix. Theodocia, 
X. Eliza. These children, some, if not all, settled in 
Schoharie and Albany counties, N. Y. In 1833 
Joseph Boughton visited his brother in Green county, 
and on his way back stopped to visit a sister at Hyde 
Park, N. Y., whom he had not seen for twenty years.

The following sketch was contributed by Rev. C. M. 
Pegg by request of the compiler of this work : 

My mother, Jane E. Pegg, was much after the manner 
of her venerable father, James Boughton, in so far as the 
matter of her religious life was concerned. She was 
devotedly pious, and sought dilligently to bring up her 
four children, Samuel, James, Charlotte and myself in the 
fear of the Lord. In the absence of father from home 
mother conducted the devotions of the family and would 
pray for each of the children by name. She died at the 
early age of forty-four years, worn out in the self-sacrificing 
service of her children. James was followed in his des- 
perate sickness by a brother and sister. When these had 
all rallied, their guardian angel and tender nurse laid down 
in exhausting sickness to die. The most terrible affliction 
of my life was the loss of my saintly mother. The years 
which have elapsed since might have been marked by' very 
different experiences than those which have obtained 
had she been spared to bless us with her presence and 

After her burial I went to visit a relative in a Mohawk 
valley town. JSot being very well after the severe ordeal 
through which our home had passed, some one suggested 
in view of a revival of religion going forward in the place, 
the best medicine for me would be to go to the meeting and 
get religion. I went and made a profession of faith in 
Christ. Thereafter for a time I lived in Hartford, Conn. . 
and in Middleburgh, N. Y. When in the latter place I was 
greatly impressed with the idea of preaching the gospel. I

used to wander off by myself and on the *' Cliff " overhang- 
ing the beautiful valley below exercise myself in this 
direction. At this time my father had as his wife 
Catherine Hill Pegg, a sister of Nicholas Hill, who was one 
of the greatest lawyers who conducted cases in the Court 
of Appeals at Albany. She was a splendid specimen of 
Christian womanhood and helpful to me in the religious 
life. At the age of fifteen years I was admitted as a 
student oE the Troy Conference academy in Poultney, Vt. 
Then I attended the Jonesville academy, N. Y. From 
thence I entered the Methodist Biblical Institute which was 
located in Concord, N. H. At the age of seventeen, on a 
cold March afternoon in a country section, I found my way 
into the neighborhood of a school house, several miles from 
the city, where at night I preached as best I could from 
"My grace is sufficient for thee." There it was I had 
Daniel burning in the fiery furnace and I might have had 
him scorching yet, perhaps, if a brother minister had not 
told me Daniel was not in the furnace. Having spent 
several years in attendance on school and in preaching 1 
concluded to abandon the work and go to sea. My father 
learning thereof came for me and induced me to attend the 
Troy Conference which was to hold its session in Platts- 
burgh, N. Y. I went, and being received on trial was 
stationed at what is now called rawling avenue church, 
in Troy, where I remained from 1865 to l866. Being some- 
what dissatisfied with the situation at the end of the first 
vear, despite the many kindnesses I had experienced at the 
hands of my numerous friends, I determined to try the 
venture for the sea again. T packed my books and boarded 
the steamboat '' Connecticut " for New York. Once there I 
sought out Pastor Headstrom of the Bethel ship. He 
discouraged me in my search for a situation. Nevertheless 
I sought from place to place, yet without success. 

I was reappointed to Pawling avenue, where I spent 
another year. From thence, in 1867, I was sent to Third 
street M. E. church. My next move was to Hartford, in 
Washington county, where 1 stayed from 1868 to 1869. 
Here the Lord graciously and powerfully visited the people 
and more than one hundred persons made a profession of 
the religion of Christ. 

After two years in the above place, in which great mate- 
rial and spiritual prosperity visited the church, I was trans- 
ferred to the Wilmington Conference, and sent in 1870 to 
Leipsic, Del. My following appointment, from 1871 to 
1873, was in Fairmount, Md. Here, during three years, the 

228 BouTON-BouGHTON Family. 

work of the Lord went forward with encouraging success. 
One of the finest churches on the eastern shore, during this 
time, was dedicated to the worship of God. 

From this southern charge I was sent in 1874 to Lewes, 
Del. This old town commanded a beautiful view of the 
Delaware bay and the Atlantic ocean. During my last of 
three years in this village, a wonderful revival of religion 
broke out, and scores of persons were added to the church. 
For two years thereafter, from 1877 to 1871^ my home was 
in the city of Wilmington, where I served as pastor of 
Scott M. E. church. Here we were blessed with a fair mea- 
sure of prosperity, despite the obstiaictions which were 
thrown in our way. 

Having completed my term of service there, I joined the 
New York East Conference, and was placed in 1880 at Ken- 
sington, Conn., where we received some displays of the 
Divine goodness, in the strengthening, in some measure, of 
the church. Having been stationea at Georgetown and 
Zion's Hill, in 1881, I remained in this field for three years, 
when the itinerant wheel brought me, in 1884, to South 
Norwalk, in the same State. Here a revival, remarkable 
for its extent and thoroughness, broke out, which greatly 
changed the whole character of the church, and deeply 
impressed many people with respect to the interests of the 
better life. Having served my term of three years, in April, 
1887, I moved to New York as the pastor of the old and 
famous Allen street M. E. church. 

This grand old church, by reason of the complete change 
in the character of the poymlation in the neighborhood, and 
the thunderation of tlie elevated railroad, has ceased to be 
what it was a score of years ago, and can only, enjoy a per- 
manently prosperous future by speedily changing its loca- 
tion for a more quiet section of this great city, so full of 
unrest and sin.

helpful members of the Methodist Episcopal church 
in that place. Mr. Harder has been elected by the 
people treasurer of Rensselaer county for three succes- 
sive terms of three years each, and these repeated 
marks of their confidence in his ability and integrity 
is warranted by the shrewd business tact he has dis- 
played in conducting the details of the office.

friends." Conscientious, active, decided, yet quiet 
and unostentatious, her influence was very great, not 
only in her family, but over those with whom she

2,338 iv. LuciNA Jennet Boughton (daughter of Andrew 
and Lucina Rogers Boughton, b. in Schodack, N. Y., 
April 8, 1830, m. Sept. 12, 1853, Rev. Albert Bush- 
nell, the devoted African missionarv, as his second 
wife. He was born in Rome, N. Y., Feb. 9, 1818. 
They embarked for Gaboon, West Coast Africa, Dec. 
9, 1853, having been detained a while by a severe 
hemorrhage he had from the lungs. They arrived 
there Jan. 29, 1854. Much of her work, besides try- 
ing to make a happy home for her husband, was m 
connection with boarding schools^ for both boys and 
girls ; part of the time at Nengenenge, a new station 
some distance up the G-aboon river. In 1857, they 
returned to their native land for a short rest, Mrs. 
Bushnell being very much prostrated with repeated 
attacks of fever. 

In June, 1858, they again sailed from New York for 
Africa, to continue the work so dear to their hearts. 
Once more, late in 1861, they were compelled to leave, 
physicians saying that Mrs. Bushnell would never 
again return. But health was restored, and they 
returned and labored on till 1869 or 1870, when they 
again came to this country. It was failing health, 
alone, that compelled them to make these frequent 
visits. But during the time spent here, he was 
actively engaged in publishing portions of the Bible 
in the language of the people, in attending mission- 
ary meetings and conventions, visiting colleges and 
theological seminaries, etc., always laboring beyond 
his strength. The Gaboon mission being transferred 
from the " American Board " to the *' Presbyterian," 
Mr. Bushnell was also transferred ; and in the spring 
of 1871 they returned to their work, where he labored 
on, preaching, teaching, translating, visiting the peo- 
ple from town to town ; till, exceedingly wearied and 
worn, in 1878 he revisited this country with his wife, 
for the last time. During this stay he was almost 
constantly under the personal care of his devoted 
wife, who exercised quietly and unceasingly a watch- 
ful care over him. Feeling that his failing health 
would necessitate his soon laying down his work, his 
appeals were most pressing upon the young men to 
enter upon and carry forward the woric which hith- 
erto had very much depended upon his energies. Fail- 
ing to obtain the offer of others to assume the work, 
he at once resolved to go himself, and give the last of 


his life, as he had given the best of it, for the neg- 
lected people of Africa. Dr. Bushnell, in company 
with his wife and Miss Janet B. Cameron, of Auburn, 
N. Y., afterward Mrs. Arthur W. Marling, who had 
consecrated her life to the mission work in Africa, 
set sail from New York Oct. 10, 1879, on board 
steamship Berlin, for Liverpool, Eng. There, after 
resting a few days, he reshipped on board steamship 
Ethiopia, for Madeira, where he had been advised by 
physicians to tarry a while. After three weeks he 
took the steamship A.mbria for Gaboon, seeming 
stronger than when he left America. But in a few 
days his physical condition suddenly became alarm- 
ing, and from an attack of pneumonia, complicated 
with valvular disease of the heart, he passed to his 
rest, on board the steamer, just after it anchored in 
the harbor of Sierra Leone, Africa, Dec. 2, 1879. 
His remains were respectfully prepared, and the fol- 
lowing day conveyed to a cemeterjr about two miles 
from the landing, where they were interred until 
they could be transferred to their final resting place, 
where his hfe-work had been given. Mrs. Bushnell 
proceeded on her lonely journey, arriving at Gaboon 
Dec. 27, 1879. The above extract is condensed from 
a little memorial of his life, prepared by friends in 
this country. Mrs. Bushnell returned to America, 
arriving in New York Oct. 20, 1883, since which time 
until the present, March, 1889, she has made her 
home at Schodack; post-office, Nassau, Rensselaer 
Co., N. Y.

chasing about one-quarter of it. There he lived and 
improved the land, and his sons and kindred settled 
about him. An elevated part of the tract was called 
Boughton hill, which name it still bears at this writ- 
ing, 1889, from which a piece of land was set off and 
donated by him for a cemetery, where he was buried. 
He died 1798, aged 73 years ; she died at West Stock- 
bridge, 1789. 

To the published Recollections of Melania Boughton 
Smith (daughter of Jared and OUve Stone Boughton), by 
her son, E. Delafield Smith, 1870, the compiler acknowledges 
much assistance in the history of Hezekiah Boughton and 
his descendants. Also, to Mi-s. Laura H. S. Dom, for much

(ii.) Enos Boughton (son of Hezekiah and Abigail Pen- 
oyer Boughton) b. Stamford, Conn., May 26, 1755. At just 
what date he went to Stockbridge the writer is not informed. 
By the aid of the published EecoUections of Melania Bough- 
ton Smith, by her son, E. Delafield Smith, New York, 1870, 
many interesting incidents of early history have been 
obtained, among which is the following : "In the year 
1788, Phelps & Company, of New England, purchased 
large tracts of land in western New York, of the Indians, 
notwithstanding such purchases had been prohibited, except 
by consent of the legislature. They appointed William 
Walker their agent, by whom Enos Boughton was subse- 

auently employed as clerk. Enos Boughton and his brother 
[ezekiah, Jr., having heard of the fertility of the Genesee 
country, went, in the year 1788, through trackless forests, 
to explore that region. They accomplished their object 
and returned ; and again, m the spiing of 1789, he and his 
brother Jared visited the place which subsequently became 

272 BouTON-BouGHTON Familt. 

Victor, the residence of so many of the Boughtons and 
their connections. During the fall of 1788, he, Enos, 
secured a contract from Walker for what became the town 
of Victor, and before the following spring had sold more 
than two-thirds of his purchase. 

^^ In process of time some trouble was experienced in 
obtaining satisfactory titles for these lands, and he, Enos 
Boughton, became heavily involved, by which not only 
himself but his brothers, who endeavored to assist him, 
became large losers, and in order to retrieve their losses, he 
and his brother Jared, and brother-in-law Daniel Sawyer, 
went to North Carolina in the summer of 1799. Their 
project was to make lumber of the juniper or white cedar, 
which grew in the swamps of that region. The climate 
not proving congenial and tne enterprise unsatisfactory, he, 
Enos, soon returned with his family to Victor. He married, 
place and date not known, but probably West Stockbridge, 
Mass., Clarissa Jones, and moved (after his return from 
North Carolina to Victor), thence to Niagara FaUs, and then 
to Lockport, N. Y., where he died three years later, Oct. 5, 
1827, aged 73 years. She died April 19, 1821, aged 58 years. 

** Enos Boughton was a man of great force of character ; 
was active, enterprising, and always sanguine of success in 
his schemes, when others would have yielded to discourage- 
ment. His figure was fine and erect, his eyes dark and 
expressive. In manner he was courtly but always dignified, 
and rather reserved. He spent his later years in retire- 
ment, at his first home at Boughton Hill, interesting him- 
self in reading, a little farming, gardening and fruit rais- 
ing, of which he was very fond. A widowed daughter and 
her child were his chief companions, his wife having died 
many years before.^' 

Note. — An article appeared in a Rochester newspaper on 
the 4:th of January, 1889, as foUows : *' Yellow with Age. — 
One of the first transfers of real estate made in Monroe 
county, N. Y., was recorded in the county clerk's office 
yesterday. The paper was worn and yellow with age, but 
the writmg was well preserved. The deed was given on 
August 9, 1795, by Enos Boughton, of Bloomfield, Ontario 
county, N. Y., to his kinsman, Horatio Boughton, yeoman. 
The land described in the deed consisted of 241^ acres on 
the south side of Genesee river, at the entrance of Bed 
creek, and the consideration was £500. Enos Boughton, 
the grantor, was the f oundei* of a large family, many de- 
scendants of which reside in that locality. A portion of the 


land embraced in this deed, is in the tract selected by the 
park commissioners for the proposed South Park. When 
this deed was made, the site of Rochester was an unbroken 
wilderness, and the purchaser little dreamed that in less 
than 100 years his descendants would sell the land to a great 
city for a park."

Y., 1787, Olive Stone (dau. of Charles and Tryphena 
CoUins Stone), b. Old Stockbridge, Berkshire county, 
Mass., Jan. 2, 1770. 

Hezekiah Boughton and his family were residents of 
Old Stockbridge, Mass., and Jared Boughton, his son, with 
his wife continued to make their home there for some time 
after their marriage. 

In the spring of 1788, having heard of the fertile country 
of the Genesee, he and his brother Hezekiah started on an 
exploring expedition in search of a new home. They went 
first to Chenango, where Charles Stone, father-in-law of 
Jared, had previously bought a large tract of land. 

Not liking the country they were about to return, but 
being informed of the council held with the Indians by 
Phelps & Gorham at Geneva, with a view to the extinc- 
tion of the Indian title to their large purchase of territory 
in western New York, they found company and went 
thither, arriving a few days before the close of the ti'eaty. 
They were well pleased with the country, but being unable 
to purchase until the land was surveyed they returned to 

The treaty was held in July, 1788. In the fall of the same 
year William Walker, agent and surveyor for Phelps & 
Gorham, Enos Boughton (brother of Jared), clerk and 
assistant of Walker, with others came on to Canandaigua, 
where they erected a store-house and other buildings for the 
accommodation of the party. These were the fii'st build- 
ings erected in that town. In the course of the fall Enos 
obtained from Walker a contract for township 11, range 4, 
of the Phelps & Gorham tract, now the township of Victor, 
Ontario county. 






In May, 1789, Jared Boughton, his brother Enos, Horatio 
Jones, a surveyor, and brother-in-law of Enos, with hired 
hands came to the new purchase. The township, six 
miles square, was surveyed into lots and prepared for sale. 
The fatner, Hezekiah Boughton, reserved somewhat more 
than one-fourth, including what was afterward called 
Boughton Hill. The remainder was mostly sold before 
spring. Jared Boughton had brought with him a supply 
of seeds and some farming implements. He raised summer 
crops for immediate use, built a log house and sowed 
several acres of wheat for the next year. This was the 
first improvement made by white men m that town. There 
had been an Indian village on the Hill and the Indians had 
burned oflf the timber and kept the ground clear, apparently 
for their own planting. Thus there was a large ti-act nearly 
ready for the plough. On this the wild grass grew 
luxuriantly, furnishing abundant pasturage for the cattle 
and sheep which were brought on in June by Hezekiah 
Boughton and a cousin, Jacob Lobdell. 

In October most of thp party returned to Stockbridge. 
The homecoming of the brothers was saddened by the 
death of their mother, Abigail Penoyer Boughton, which 
had occurred in the summer. 

The intention of Jared Boughton was to avail himself of 
the winter, to take his family and effects in sleighs to their 
new home. They waited in vain for sleighing until Feb- 
ruary, when, a few inches of snow having fallen, they 
started on the long journey. Seymour Boughton, younger 
brother of Jared, accompanied them as assistant and 
companion. There were two children, a son Selleck, not 
quite two years old, and a daughter Melania, only four 
months old. The way was through an almost uninhabited 
wilderness, if we except Indians and wild beasts. There 
were no roads except such as were cut through the woods ; 
the streams were without bridges. The Cayuga lake was 
crossed on the ice, which was so softened by the lateness of 
the season that with the horses at full speed the sleigh 
tracks filled with water behind them. When no other 
shelter was reached they camped under the trees when 
night overtook them. Of one of these instances Mr. 
Boughton wrote — having passed the previous night at the 
house of an Indian interpreter and his squaw wife — '' We 
had traveled thirteen miles. Col. Reed's family and mine, 
fourteen in number, camped that night under a hemlock 
tree, built a camp of hemlock boughs, had a warm brisk 
fire, made chocolate ; and although my wife had a young 

280 BouTON-BouGHTON Family, 

child, we had a comfortable time."- They arrived at their 
cabin in Victor, March 7, 1790. 

Olive Boughton, the wife of Jared, was the first white 
woman who came to that town, and for three months she 
was the only one. Her second son, Frederic, was the first 
white child born there. He was born June 1st, 1791. 

In October, 1790, seven or eight months after the arrival 
of Jared Boughton in Victor, his father came, with the 
youngest son, Seymour, and the unmarried daughter, Theo- 
dosia. The married daughters came not far from the same 
time, and the family were all together in the new western 
home. The father gave farms to his married children, and 
built a house for himself and the two unmarried ones. He 
gave land on Boughton Hill for a cemetery, and a public 
square. On this square a school house was built, where for 
many years most of the Boughton ideas were taught to 
shoot. He laid out a broad highway, extending from Bough- 
ton Hill to the south line of his possessions, which was also 
the line betwen Victor and East Bloomfield. All these 
were donated to the town. In the division of property 
among the children, Enos and Jared Boughton settled on 
Boughton Hill. The latter built his house under the 
shadow of a great oak, which had escaped the fires, and 
beneath which were several Indian graves. Here the fam- 
ily passed a number of happy years. Hezekiah Boughton, 
the father, died in 1798. Soon after, Enos became involved 
in financial trouble. To relieve him, his brother Jared, and 
Daniel Sawyer, who had married the sister Theodosia, sold 
their possessions, paid the debts, and hoping to retrieve 
their fortunes, removed with their families— Enos and his 
family going with them — to North Carolina. Jared and his 
family were detained at Old Point Comfort, Virginia, by 
sickness. One of his children, a daughter aged eighteen 
months, and a niece of Mrs. Boughton aged eighteen years, 
died there. They had left Victor in June, and arrived at 
the place of their destination in September. 

Their plan was to manufacture lumber from the white 
cedar which abounded in the swamps there. They hired 
slaves from their masters and set to work. The lumber 
was sent in vessels to northern cities, where it sold readily. 
After a year or two Enos and his family returned to Victor. 
The others worked on. Soon they were able to purchase 
vessels. The elder sons were placed in a school in Edenton, 
N. C. The two eldest daughters were sent to a boarding 
school in Providence, R. I., where they remained two years. 

At the end of ten years their object was so far accom- 


Elished that Jared Boughton decided to return home. The 
awyer family remained in Carolina, never coming north 
again. Mr. Boughton came back to Victor in 1809 and 
repurchased a part of his original farm. He also built a 
brick hotel in East Bloomfield, which was one of a series 
two or three miles apart on what was then called the State 
road, leading west from Albany to Buffalo, passing through 
Canandaigua and East Bloomfield. These taverns, as they 
were then called, were large with ample barns intended 
for the accommodation not only of the inhabitants, but 
chiefly as resting places for the many men and teams 
bringing goods from the east to supply the western market. 
Here he placed his second son ; the eldest he settled on a 
farm adjoining his own, but he afterward left farming for 
the study of law. 

In this, the home of his early choice, he spent the most 
of his after life, beloved and respected by all who knew 
him. He died February 10, 1852, at the home of his 
youngest son Enos, in East Bloomfield. His wife had died 
there Jan. 17, 1849. They are both buried in the old burial 

•ound on Boughton Hill where his father and many of his 

indred also lie.

at that time was very sickly, the streets being in a 
horrible condition and bilious fever prevalent. In 
the following autumn Dr. Smith went to New York

boys, Sandf ord and Augustus, went to her father's in

and in 1886 moved to New York city, where the sons 
attended college. In November, 184:6, Dr. Smith was 
thrown from a horse and injured so that he was 
never after in good health. He died while on a visit 
to friends in western New York at the house of his 
brother-in-law, Enos Bough ton, June 19, 1850.

The following obituary was clipped from a Rochester, 
N. Y., newspaper, July, 1876: 

"Death of Augustus F. Smith. — We are called upon 
to announce the death of Augustus F. Smith, of New York. 
He died on the 6th instant, after a long and painful illness. 
Mr. Smith was once a resident of this city, and was weU 
known to many of our citizens. He was a son of Dr. Arch- 
elaus G. Smith, formerly of Rochester, and the only sur- 
viving brother of Hon. E. Delafleld Smith. He was born 
in Victor, N. Y., October 3d, 1819. His father became a 
resident of Rochester in 1823, and practiced in this city till 
1836, when he removed to New York with his family. Mr. 
Smith was one of the ^*old school boys" of Rochester, 
graduated at New York university, was admitted to the 
Bar in New York and practiced his prof essioii there until he 
was seized with the sickness which resulted iu his death. 
He achieved distinction and a fortune as a member of the 
firm of Martin & Smith, whose business equalled, if it did 
not exceed, that of any legal firm in the metropolis. He 
was the active member of the firm, his "partner, Mr. Martin, 
seldom — if ever — ^appearing in court. Unquestionably, Mr. 
Smith was one of the fii-st lawyers of New York. He 
never aspired to poUtical preferment — his entire life was 
devoted to the profession wnich he adorned. He was a man 
of sterling integrity, unblemished character, of noble bear- 
ing, and he commanded the highest respect and admiration 
of Doth bench and bar. He hved in modest elegance, the 
head of a family refined and devoted. He will be mourned 
by all who knew him, and the legal profession will be 
deprived of a member whose ripe learning, elegant culture 
and unsurpassed ability it can illy spare."

sity of New York, 1846 ; studied law in the offices of 
Chancellor Kent, Judge Blatchf ord and Judge Henry 
E. Davies, and was admitted to the bar in 1848. He 
practiced in New York for several years, during 
which, in addition to arduous professional work, he 
published four volumes of selected legal decisions, 
which are known as the E. D. Smith Reports. In 
1861 he was appointed by President Lincoln, U. S. 
district attorney for the southern district of New 
York, an ofiice which he held for four years, during 
which he achieved many triumphs, the most cele- 
brated being the conviction and execution of Nathan- 
iel Gordon, a slave trader. This was the first con- 
viction under a law which had been in existence, but 
a dead letter for forty-one years. At the close of his 
term he resumed the practice of his profession, until 
appointed counsel to the corporation of New York. 
In consequence of failing health he retired to his 
country home in Shrewsbury, N. J., where he died 
April 12, 1878.

2,863°° Samuel Boughton^ is the earliest known member of 
this family,* and even his place of residence i& 
unknown, except that it was in Connecticut. He 
must have been born between 1730 and 1740. Tradi- 
tion says he married at the age of twenty-four, and 
died two years later. His wife's name was Eunice, 
almost certainly Eunice Nichols, of Reading, Conn.y 
and she was bom March 5, 1739. She married, sec- 
ond, John or Daniel Osburn, to whom she bore twelve 
childrefi. With that husband she removed to Otis- 
ville, Orange county, N. Y. She married, third, 


*NoTE. — It has been supposed that he was that Samuel 

Boughton, born April 11, 1730, whose ancestors were : 

Nathaniel, 3 John,f John ;* but there are grave objections to 

this theory. 

Child of Samnel and Eunice Nichols Bongrhton. 

2863^^ i. Samuel Boughton was boiTi in Connecticut, and 
so high an authority as Dr. J. W. Meeker, fixes Sept. 
16, 1759, as the date of his birth. In childhood ne 
was taken by his mother to Otisville, N. Y. He 
married at Shawangunk, Ulster county, N. Y., in or 
before the year 1792, Lucy Tracy,* called **of Canaan, 
Conn.," though, perhaps, then residing in New York 
*Note. — Mercy Tracy, a sister of Lucy, mamed a Farn- 
ham, of Scipio, N. Y., and was mother of the late Hon. 


Henry Farnhaai, a well known patron of Yale college. 
Another sister, Abigail Tracy, married Simeon Parks, by 
whom she had a daughter, Betsey, who married George 
Bough ton, and had at least three children.

They had a son William Gallup, born about 1862.*

Lucy, daughter of Benjamin Tracy, by his wife Olive 
[Killain ?], and her parents are said to have removed from 
Norwalk, Conn., about 1783, and after residing a while at 
Shawangunk, removed to Scipio, Cayuga county, N. Y. 
She out-lived her husband and, after living some time with 
her daughter Olive, married in her old age Elijah Williams, 
a Presbyterian deacx)n of Victor, N. Y. Samuel Boughton 
settled Victor, about the year 1797, and died there on the 
estate of his son-in-law James Upton about 1810-20. He 
had four children.

(i.) Olive® Boughton (dau. of Samuel and Lucy Tracy 
Boughton), was born in or near the village of Shawangunk, 
N. Y., in 1793, but was taken by her parents to Victor, 
Ontario county, N. Y. , in her fourth year. There she mar- 
ried April 21, 1808, James Upton, Esq., one of the leading 
citizens of western New York. He was born in Charle- 
mont, Mass., Feb. 2, 1779, and settled in Victor, 1797, where 
he became a large landed proprietor and built the ** Upton 
Homestead" which still stanas.* He died in 1857, having 
lost his wife April 24,1842.t 

*For a further account of this Upton familv, see Vinton's 
^*The Upton Memorial," Upton's ^^Genealogical Collec-

+This date was erroneously printed '* 1824 " in the *' N. E. 


H. and G. Register " for April, 1886; and thereby the careful 
author of the '* Handbook of Hartwell Genealogy " was led 
to suppose James Upton had a second wife.

2,890» ii. William W.Upton (son of James and Olive Bough- 
ton Upton), was born in Victor, N. Y., July 11, IblT. Our 
space will not permit an adequate biography of Judge Upton, 


nor could a complete account of his active life be written 
without a discussion of burning political questions which 
would be out of place in these pages. The son of a wealthy 
farmer in a newly settled part of the state, he received 
somewhat more than a common school education, and early 
acquired that love of learning and faculty for hard study 
which has always been one of his most marked character- 
istics. Yet his love was for learning, not for show, and in 
later life, when he was familiar with the most advanced 
branches of mathematics, and could read Latin and French 
as readily as English, he declined the degree of LL.D., 
tendered him by one of our leading colleges, on the ground 
that " he thought such distinctions should be conferred 
sparingly, and only upon those who have received a thor- 
ough classical education." 

Mr. Upton went to Victor, Mich., in the winter of 1837-8, 
but returned to his native town the following September, 
where he remained about a year and was married. He 
then, in 1840, returned to Victor, Mich., and was admitted 
to the bar. He rapidly gained a leading position at the bar 
of his adopted state, and was frequently elected to office by 
his fellow citizens. He was a supervisor of Victor, 1840-5 ; 
surveyor of Clinton county, 1841-5 ; treasurer of same, 
1845-7 ; and a member of the legislature which made Lan- 
sing the capital. He removed to DeWitt in 1845, and to 
Lansing in 1847, in which place he built the first house that 
was not of logs. He was appointed district attorney for 
Ingham county, in 1848, and was elected to the same office 
for two terms of two years each, in 1849 and in 1851. Re- 
signing this office, he left Michigan with his family, April 
1, 1852, for California, by the overland route. There he 
settled, first at Weaverville, but in 1852 removed to Sacra- 
mento. He was a member of the legislature in 1856, and 
in the fall of 1861, when there were three political parties 
in California, he was elected prosecuting attorney of Sacra- 
mento county, which office he held till 1864. In the presi- 
dential contest of 1860 he was a Douglas democrat, but on 
the breaking out of the war he became a firm supporter of 
President Lincoln, and has ever since been a republican. 
In 1864 he was urged to become a candidate for congress, 
but the ill health of his family compelled him to remove 
from a climate which had proved fatal to his wife and three 
of his children. He accordingly removed to Portland, Ore- 
gon, in the spring of 1865. He was almost immediately 
elected to the legislatui*e of Oregon. In 1867 he was ap- 
pointed a justice of the Supreme Court of Oregon, and in 

I * 


1868 was elected to that position for a term of six years. 
He became chief justice in 1872. So satisfactorily did he 
fill these oflBces and so high was his reputation as a lawyer, 
that more than eighty of his nisi prius decisions were 
printed and bound with the decisions of the Supreme Court. 

At the expiration of his term of office, financial reverses 
compelled him to decline a renomination and to resume the 
practice of his profession. In the presidential controversy 
of 1876, the vote of Oregon being in doubt, the republicans 
practically rested their case before the electoral commission 
tipon a decision rendered by Judge Upton at nisi prius upon 
the question of the power of the governor of Oregon to 
exercise judicial functions. A majority of the state Su- 
preme Court had differed with Judge Upton, but the elec- 
torsd commission by a unanimous vote sustained his view, 
thus giving the state and the presidency to the republicans. 
In 1877 Judge Upton, unexp^KJtedly to himself, was ap- 
pointed second comptroller of the treasury of the United 
States, an office, according to Alexander Hamilton, **next 
to the secretary of the treasury." As this was practically 
a judicial office and a court of last resort (the comptroller's 
decisions being reversible by act of congress only), Judge 
Upton accepted the appointment with pleasure, removed 
with his family to Washington city and entered upon the 
discharge of his duties October 1, 1877. He filled the office 
with great credit to himself through three administrations, 
passing upon about 160,000 accounts and claims, involving 
about $600,000,000. Soon after the inauguration of 
President Cleveland, Judge Upton tendered his resignation, 
and on its acceptance, June 1, 1885, resumed the practice 
of his profession in Washington. Early in 1885 his " Digest 
of Decisions of the Second Comptroller of the Treasury, 

1869 to 1884," was published by the United States govern- 

Judge Upton married, first, Victor, N. T. , Feb. 8, 1840, 
Maria Amanda Hollister, eldest daughter of Hon. Joseph 
and Amanda (Adams) Hollister.* She was bom at Danby, 
N. Y., August 13, 1318, and died at Sacramento in Decem- 
ber, 1858. He married, second, East Avon, N. Y., March 
29, I860, Marietta, daughter of Amasa and Alida Ann 
(Ketcham) Bryan.

19, 1844. He Uved. in Michigan and California with 
his father. He graduated at the High school in Sac- 
ramento, and was admitted to the bar there. He 
removed to Portland, Oregon, soon after his father 
did, and went from there to Oregon City. In 186& 
he returned to Portland, and was for four years in 
the real estate business in connection with his pro- 
fession, devoting much time and money to the pro- 
motion of emigration from the eastern states and 
Europe to Oregon. In 1873 he removed to Washing- 
ton county, but returned a^ain to Oregon City. In 
1876 he retired from practice and took up his resi- 
dence at Oretown, Oregon, which has since been his 
home, except about two years, when large business 
interests required his presence in Colfax, W . T. He 
married, Nov. 9, 1869, Anne Amanda Shaw, of Ore- 
gon City, by whom he has five children.

18, 1845. He went to California with his parents ia 
1852, graduated at the Sacramento High school in 
1865, removed to Portland, Oregon, where he was 
admitted to the bar, and was successively deputy 
sheriff, deputy prosecuting attorney and deputy U. 
S. attorney. He practiced his profession with 
marked success, both in Portland and at Walla Walla^ 


W. T., to which place he removed about 1878. He 
has traveled and read much, is a man of liberal ideas, 
a large land owner, and unmarried. 

3.899 iv. Marietta Upton, b. Lansing, Mich., March 4, 
1848. She lived with her father in Michigan, Cali- 
fornia, Oregon and Washington, and died in the lat- 
ter city, Oct. 1, 1880, unmarried. In this young lady, 
whose life was devoted to the happiness of those 
around her, all the strongest and noblest qualities of 
her family seem to have united and reached their 
highest development. With all the intellectual power 
of her father, she inherited from her mother all 
those gentler graces of mind and heart which are the 
crowning ornament of her sex. With mental train- 
ing which enabled her to fit one brother for Tale col- 
lege and another for West Point, and social accom- 
phshments which made her a favorite in the best 
society in the land and charmed all who knew her, 
she found her favorite occupation in relieving the 
sufferings of the poor and the afflicted. Short as 
was her life, who can measure the good she accom- 
phshed, or the effects of her life and example upon 
those who were brought within their influence ?

He then entered the office of Hon. R. W. Thompson, 
secretary of the navy, where he remained nearly 
three years. Entering the law school of Columbian 
university, he graduated LL.B. in 1879, and LL.M. 
in 1880. In the latter year, having previously been 
admitted to the bar, he resigned his position, formed 
a professional partnership with his brother Charles 
B., and removed to Walla Walla, W. T., where he 
has since been in active practice. 

He married at Washington, D. C, June 23, 1881, 
Oeorj^a Louise, youngest daughter of the late Samuel

to Uve with his father in Washington city. There, 
having declined a lieutenancy in the army, he received 
an appointment in the war department, which he 
held until, having graduated at Columbian university, 
he was admitted to the bar. In 1884 he married

mental ability and thorough culture to the work of pro- 
moting the happiness and good of those about her, especially 
the poor, the weak and the erring ; and left a memory 
which will long be one of the rarest of Victor's treasures.

emigrated, it is supposed, from Fairfield county, Ct., to 
Delaware county, jJ. Y., where they settled, then a new, 
unimproved region, with only marked trees by which the 
settlers could find their way through the dense forest, the 
nearest place where they could obtain their milling and 
store supplies being about forty miles distant. 

340 BouTON-BouGHTON Family. 

About the same period, David BoutoD, supposed to be 
their brother (the children of Samuel Bouton, son of 
Nathaniel and Mary Bouton, of New Canaan, in the town 
of Stamford, Ct.)i aJso emigrated to Delaware county, N. 
Y., having just married, at Redding, Ct., Esther Belden. 
Subsequently Mercy, their sister, also came to reside in 
Delaware county, and settled at Delhi, having married, 
Feb. 6, 1775, Jonathan AUaben, of Blue Point, L. I. An 
early record says that Samuel Bouton married and settl^ 
on Liong Island. (See descendants of Nathaniel Bouton,

In the absence of authentic history regarding Matthew 
Bouton (son of the emigrant, John Bouton), of whom the 
Norwalk town records show that he sold land in Norwalk, 
the gift of his father, and went toDanbury with his brother 
John, where they bought land, in the record of which their 
names are spelled with the ' * gh " — which spelling seems to 
have become popular in Danbury thereafter. Although, no 
doubt owing to the burning of the early town records, there 
has no definite and particular family record of the first Mat- 
thew Bouton been discovered, it is beUeved and assumed 
from the records of the probate court (some of which were 
preserved) that John Boughton, whose will was dated 
second year of the reign of George III, king of England, 
September 6, 1756, was a son of said Matthew, Sr. He 
bequeathed to his wife Rebecca certain movables and the 
use of lands, and the residue to his children, Rebecca, John 
and James, having provided a portion for Hannah, Ehza- 
beth and Seth Whitney, children of his wife Rebecca by 
her first husband, appointing his beloved wife and loving 
brother, Benjamin boughton, nxecutors. The following 
April, 1757, said Benjamin and Rebecca accepted the trust 
as executors of the will of said John Boughton, and, Janu- 
ary, 1758, Rebecca, daughter of said John Boughton, 
deceased, chose for her guardian her uncle Benjamin, and 

BouTON-BouGHTON Familt. 361 

Daniel Boughton (probably a brother of said John and Ben- 
jamin) was appointed jointly with Benjamin as guardian 
of deceased John's minor son John. 

The first mention found on the records of Danbury, of 
this period, of Matthew Boughton is April 17, 1767, when 
he was appointed administrator on the estate of Elizabeth 
Boughton. It is supposed that he was a grandson of the 
first Matthew Bouton and a son of David, and in later life 
moved, with his wife Martha, to central New York, leav- 
ing his son Thomas Boughton, a farmer, of Ridgebury, 
near Danbury, who, as subsequent records show, married 
Rebecca Coley, and lived and died at Ridgebury, Ct.; he d. 
April 4, 1846 ; she Jan. 16, 1853. 

A deed of land by Matthew Bouton to John Belden, of 
Norwalk, dated April 3, 1724, is in possession of D. H. Van 
Hoosen, Esq., of Wilton, Ct., and is a remarkably well 
preserved relic one hundred and sixty-three years old.

converted and baptized into the Baptist church in 
Danbury and soon imbibed an earnest desire to 
engage in the work of the ministry, and it was soon 
evident that the Lord had endowed him with a 
special gift for the work. After serving for a time 
in his native town he settled in New York city as 
pastor of the Union Baptist church, afterward the 
Stanton street Baptist church. He m. March 30, 
1816, Nancy Ford, of New Jersey ; they had five

Genealogy , pag© 395, contains an interesting bio- 
graphical sketch of him. He was greatly endeared 
to the compiler of this work, as his pastor, who 
baptized and married him, as noted elsewhere. He 
was remarkable for his earnest piety, gentleness of 
manner and loyalty to the claims of God as revealed 
' in the Bible. He died at the meridian of his work, 
greatly beloved, Oct. 28, 1848, and was buried in 
Greenwood cemetery.

engaged at the time in subduing the Indian encroachments 
on our western frontiers ; but the life did not meet his 
tastes, so by the assistance of friends his discharge from the 
army was procured. He then went to New York city, 
where he embarked in mercantile pursuits, which, by lus 


shrewd judgment, he made quite successful. Operating in 
large undertaking heat one time (1835) controlled the New- 
York market in Uie article of honey, and eventually work- 
ing into financial Unes he became one of the active men in 
^ all street and one bt the organizers of the open board of 
brokers. Having secured a competence he retired to Scho- 
harie, N. Y., where he purchased a home and resided, 
becoming a leader in the councils of his political party 
(democratic), by whom he was often urged to accept official 
position, which he always declined. He died, widely known 
and respected, at the meridian of Ufe, at Schoharie, Oct. 
22, 1862.

(i.) John Boughton, ^' son of Timothy and Martha Scott 
Boughton," was born at Poundridge, Westchester county, 
N. Y., May 2, 1770. Owing to losses sust^ained by his father, 
who was a soldier of the revolution, on his return from the 
war, found himself unable to bring up all his children at 
home, and accordingly put out his two oldest child i^en, John 
and Sally, with a Mr. John Edmonds, of Southbury, Ct., 
to work until of age. When out of his time he continued 
to live in Southbury and work for his former employer 
until he married at Southbury, February 1, 1793, Currence 
Downs, of Southbury, where she was born Nov. 1, 1773. 
They continued to live at Southbury as farmers for a few 
years, when, learning of the great advantage of the soil in 
the western part of the state of New York, he decided to 
settle in the town of Scipio, Cayuga county, N. Y., where 
he moved his family with a yoke of oxen and a wagon. 
He started from Connecticut on the first day of February, 
1791, and made the journey of over 300 miles through a 
new and sparsely settled country in twenty-one days. Ar- 
riving at Scipio they settled on a farm he had purchased, 
lying in the midst of a dense and heavily wooded forest, with 
but about an acre of cleared land to commence the produc- 
tion of a sustenance for his little family. Leaving, as they 
had, the comforts and advantages of a cultivated country, 
they felt keenly the want of church and school accommo- 
dations. Both having been members of the Presbyterian 
church at Southbury, they forgot not their early vows, 
and soon began, in connection with some of their neigh- 
bors, to arrange for church and school facilities. 

For a time the neighbors convened at their house for pub- 
lic worship, until the interest resulted in building a scnool- 
house, which served for both purposes. 

Finding it needful to have a religious society organized, 
the people were called together for that purpose, and for- 
mulated the views of the oody, which proved to be that of 
a regular Baptist churchy of which they ever remained 
members while they lived, and in which all their children 
were brought up in the fear and admonition of the Lord, 
and were nearly all baptized into its fellowship. 


After a period of about thirteen years of toil and privation, 
Currence, the mother of all his children and the devoted 
sharer of his love and labor, died May 3, 1810, and was 
interred in the burying ground of the Baptist church at 
Scipio, N. Y., where there still stands a marble tablet with 
this inscription : '^Currence, wife of John Bough ton, who 
died in the faith of Christ May 3, 1810, aged 37 y. 3 m. 4d. 

He married second, Abigail Stilson, a widow, of Scipio, 
N. Y., Januaiy, 1811, by whom he had no children. 

After twenty-seven years of active hfe as a farmer on the 
same farm upon which he settled on arriving in Cayuga 
county, he died, much respected, March 25, 1824, and was 
buried by the grave of his departed wife, and a marble 
tablet, inscribed : '* John Bough ton, Avho died in the faith 
of Christ March 25, 1824," still marks the place of his

(i.) William Boughton, b. Southbury, Ct., Jan. 23, 1794, 
being but three years old when his parents moved from 
Connecticut to Scipio, N. Y., where he remained with his 
parents until sixteen years old, when he was apprenticed 
to Edward Allen, near Auburn, N. T., to learn cloth- 
making. The following year he went to Q^noa Hollow to 
learn cloth- dressing with Enoch Buck, but his father, not 
liking the treatment he received from his employed, took 
him away and sent him on a visit to Connecticut among 


his relatives. He made the journey on foot, and called 
on his way at the house of his uncle, Thaddeus Boughton, 
in Clinton, Dutchess county, N. Y. 

On arriving in Connecticut he went to his grandfather 
Timothy's old residence and visited the relatives in the 
vicinity, going to the bouse of Mrs. Sally Boughton 
Williams, daughter of Mrs. Abigail Boughton Rusco, the 
sister of his grandfather, Timothy Boughton, who was at 
that time an aged widow, living with her only daughter, 
Mrs. SaUy Williams, in the town of Ridgefield. While in 
Connecticut he worked in the woolen factory in Eidgefield 
township, north of the town, until January, 1815, when he 
returned to Scipio, and went to work in the woolen mill at 
Skaneateles, N. T. 

He was married at Scipio, Feb. 5, 1817, to Miss Anna 
Wakeley, daughter of Elder Abner and Ruth A. Wakeley, 
of the same place ; she was born in Connecticut, Oct 5, 
1794. They settled at Ulysses (now Enfield), N. Y., and 
afterward moved toNunda, Allegany county, N. T., where 
she died, Dec. 14, 1831. 

He married, second, Melinda Enos, and in 1836 moved to 
Pipestone, Berrien county, Mich., where as farmer he lived 
until his death, Oct. 11, 1864. 

The following ghort extract was penned from a record by 
his own hand in the year 1851, viz. : 

^'I was converted at the a^e of seventeen, and united 
with the Baptist church at Scipio, and ever after remained 
a member of that denomination. I never found anything 
so consoling as the religion of Jesus. I always sought to 
live in peace with all men, and never was engaged in an 
assault or even a lawsuit with any one. "

8,856 i. Samuel Newell Boughton (son of William and 
Anna Boughton), born Ulvsses (now Enfield), Nov. 
17, 1817. He passed his childhood with his parents at 
Nunda Valley, N. T., and was impressed with the 
idea of becoming a minister of the gospel. In 1831 
he united with the Baptist church at Nunda, N. Y., 
and in 1836 was licensed by them to preach, and 
soon after he went to Hamilton college to prepare 
for the ministry; but being embarrassed for want of 
means he left the college and engaged in teaching 
school at Victory, Cayuga Co., N. Y. An affection 
of his eyes proved a serious hindrance to pursu- 
ing his studies and he never returned to finish his 



collegiate course, a thing he often after spoke of with 
much regi-et. 

He engaged to preach as a supply to the Gouv- 
erneur Baptist church, and was prevailed upon 
to accept the pastorate of that church and was 
ordained there March 11, 1840. 

He mairied at SterUng, Cayuga Co. , N. Y. , Oct. 3, 
1839, Eliza W. Bent. dau. of Stephen and Elmira 

After serving several pastorates in New York state 
and at South Norwalk, Ct. , his health became impaii^ed, 
and he was induced to try a western climate, and in 
1852 they moved to Delavan, Wis., where, after 
preaching for a year and a half he purchased a farm 
near Baraboo, Wis. , where, on Oct. 6, 1854, he died in 
the triumph of faith. Almost his last words were, ^'In 
the mercy and grace of God, I, a sinner, full of un- 
worthiness, put all my trust. " 

He was buried at Baraboo, and his widow remained 
upon the homestead until 1870, when she moved and 
settled at Seward, Nebraska. Here she resided, a 
devoted member of the Baptist church of Seward, 
until her death, which occurred July 9, 1887.

A local paper had the following obituary on the death of 
this gifted Christian woman : 

Sudden Death. — Our community was surprised and 
shocked last Saturday, September 7, to learn that Mrs. David 
White, a very estimable and highly respected lady, and wife 
of one of our well known citizens, had died very suddenly. 
She had great fondness for plants and flowers and enjoyed 
cultivating and caring for them. Death unheralded found 
her busy among these things she loved, and with gentle 
hand led her into the land of unfading flowers and unchang- 
ing beauty. Unexpected as her departure was it was the 
fitting close of a quiet, unostentatious, beautiful Christian 
life. Miss Celecia Boughton was bom in Grove, Allegany 
county, N. Y., August 24, 1823. In May, 1836, she removed 
with her parents to Fitch ville, O., where she resided until 
her marriage, November 3, 1840, to David White of Fair- 
field, 0. Here they Hved until October, 1869. During their 
residence in Fairfield they were called to mourn the Toss of 
two daughters, leaving them childless. Since 1869 their 
home, except for a brief period after their arrival in our 
city, has been in the house where she died, and where she 
welcomed, with cordial hospitality, her many friends and 
acquaintances. In 1838 she united with the Baptist church 
at Fairfield, O., and on her removal to this city immediately 
connected herself with the First Baptist church of Coldwa- 
ter. In the church of which she was a devoted and consist- 
ent member, and in the community where she has lived so 
many years, only words of praise and commendation are 
spoken of her.. From a kind heart she uttered words of • 
sympathy and performed deeds of mercy. In all the rela- 
tions of life she was true and faithful— a good woman. It* 
may be said of her 

*' The bleBBinf^s of ber quiet life 

Fell on us like tbe dew, 
And good tbougbta, where her footsteps pressed. 

Like fairy blossoms grew. 

*' Sweet promptings unto kindest deeds 

Were in her very look. 
We read ber face, as one who reads 

A true and holy book." 


Appropriate funeral services were held at her late resi- 
denc5e Monday afternoon. Rev. J. P. Phillips officiating and 
Rev. W. T. Lowry assisting ; and then, tenderly and reve- 
rently, gentle hands laid her away to rest in beautiful Oak 
Grove, *' until daybreak and the shadows flee away." The 
following relatives and friends of Mrs. White were present 
at the funeral: Mr. and Mrs. Solon Boughton of Bowling 
Green, O.; Elon Boughton of Norvvalk, 0.; Theodore 
Boughton of North Fairfield, 0. ; Norman Belding and wife 
of Wauseon, 0.; A. D. Stotts and wife of Fairfield, 0.

Some extracts from an obituary in the South Bend Daily 
Tribune, Nov. 11, 1885 : 

Death of Judge Alward. — The death of the clerk of the 
circuit court. Judge George Henrv Alward, was not unex- 
pected, for he had been in failing health for many months, 
out when the news of his death spread through the city this 
morning it created a shock, for few men in the community 
were better known or more highly respected than Judge 

Judge Alward was eminently a self-made man. Shortly 
after reaching his majority he went to South Bend, where 
he clerked for several years for Mr. A. G. Gushing, during 
which he studied and fitted himself for the law and com- 
menced practice 1867. Dunbar & Alward was one of the 
best known firms in northern Indiana. 

Judge Alward was for several years deputy county audi- 
tor under Auditor W. J. HoUoway; held the office of city 
clerk, judge of the municipal court, and in 1883 was elected 
clerk of the circuit court; and all these responsible positions 
he filled with the utmost satisfaction to the people and the 
republican party which elected him. His funeral was

which he was a member, and was in charg;e of the Masonic 
fraternity, of which he had held the oflSce of eminent com- 
mander of South Bend Commandery Knights Templars. 

Judge Al ward's married life was one of unusual happi- 
ness. His wife was a lady of rare womanly qualities and 
superior intellectual attainments, and her influences all 
tended to making home happy. Few men were so fortu- 
nate in their family relations.

Barry Co., Mich., Dec. 20, 1852. During a revival in 
the Sunday-school of which he was a scholar, at the 
age of fourteen years, he was converted, and was 
soon impressed with a duty to become a minister of 
the gospel, which was very objectionable to him; but 
after long resistance the impression became so strong 
that he determined to unite with the church, and 
yield to what seemed to be a duty. This was about 
1869. On the removal of his parents to Bryan, Wil- 
liams Co., 0., he took his certificate of removal, and 
united with the M. E. church at that place, and was, 
Nov. 27, 1871, licensed to exhort, which was by him- 
self unsolicited; whereupon he commenced prepara- 
tion for the Christian ministry. He attended Bryan, 
0., normal school, Wesleyan university and Drew 
theological seminary, where he finished his classical 
and theological course, and graduated May 16, 1879.

City, N. J., April 1, 1877. After belonging to the 
Minnesota conference, in October, 1879, and the 
Northern Indiana conference April, 1881, and also,

seeing souls converted under his ministry. He mar-

N. Y., May 2, 1777; his father served in the Revolutionary 
war, and while he was absent in the service of his country 
his wife, with her three small children, went to Ridgefield 
to share the protection and care of her father. Captain James 
Scott. Thaddeus served his apprenticeship with Nathaniel 
Close, of Ridgefield. When out of his time he went to New- 
York city where he remained for a time and worked at his 
trade. On his return to Connecticut he went to live with a 
relative, Thomas Boughton, in Ridgebury parish, town of 
Ridgefield. Here he lived and worked at tailoring for a 
considerable time; becoming acquainted with the family of 
a neighboring farmer he married, at Ridgebury, Oct. 27, 
1801, Lucy Rockwell (daughter of Abraham and Esther 
Riggs Rockwell), of Ridgebury, where she was born May 6,

acres on what was called the mountain, in the north-west 
comer of the town of Washington, where thejr lived and 
can*ied on tailoring in connection with the cultivation and 
improvement of his farm. He united with the society of 
Friends about the year 1807, and remained a member of the 
Creek monthly meeting until 1834, when, having sold his 
farm in Washington and bought one in Victory, N.Y., 
he removed his family and household effects in April of 
that year, going by sloop to Albany and by line boat on the 
canal from thence to Port Byron, at which place they were 
met by team* and wagon and conveyed eleven miles to the 
new farm in Victory. 

The years that followed this new settlement were filled 
with the most energetic efforts to not only secure a comfort- 
able home for his family, but to promote the growth of the 
religion h ^ professed, being what is commonly designated 
a Quaker. He found himself and family isolated from any 
of his particular sect, and so established the worahip of God 
in his own house according to the practice of his connection, 
the effect of which was in time a society was organized at 
Victor, and meetings were regularly held there under the 
auspices of the Scipio quarterly meeting. 

Retracing the History. 

In the summer of 1814, Lucy, the wife of Thaddeus 
Boughton, was prostrated with a sickness that distracted 
her mind and for a time incapacitated her for the care of 
her family, from which she slowly recovered and enjoyed 
usual health until the winter of 1843-4, when a mental de- 
rangement seized her, from which she never after recovered 
through the remaining eight years of her life. After her 
illness it was thought best by her family that she should 
live with her daughter Eliza Wanzer, where she had the 
most devoted attention and affectionate care possible until 
May 5, 1852, when she died at Ledyaid, Cayuga county, 
N. Y., and was buried in Fiiends' burying ground at that 
place, and not only her children and relatives but all who 
oecame acquainted with her in life, ever gladly unite in 
bearing testimony to her unselfish devotedness to the 
welfare of others and to her uniformly meek and quiet 

After her death he continued to live with his son-in-law, 
Ebenezer L. Wanzer, who with great kindness sought to 
make his declining years peaceful and happy. With but a 
short illness he expired at the house of nis son-in«law at 

460 BouTON-BouGHTON Family. 

Ledyard, N. T., on the 16th of June, 1861, aged 84 years, 43 
days, and was buried by the remains of his wife in the 
Friends' burying ground at Ledyard, where a simple tablet 
marks his resting place.

BouGHTON, William Leason Boughton, Edward Hicks 
Boughton, and James Boughton. 

4.302 i. Minerva Boughton, b. Nov. 11, 1802, and died 
Jan. 19, 1805. 

4.303 ii. RuNA Rockwell Boughton, b. Clinton, Dutchess 
county, N. Y., Mar. 3, 1806. In boyhood served an 
apprenticeship with his father at tailoring which, as 
he advanced in years, did not meet his taste. He 
obtained a situation as clerk in the general store of 
Hubby Adee at Pleasant Valley, Dutchess county, 
N. Y., where he became acquainted with his 
daughter, Dorinda, the widow of Cornell Palmer, 
living .at her father's with her two small children. 
She was born at Pleasant Valley, N. Y., Jan. 5, 1803, 
and they married Sept., 1826, and settled in New 
York city, whore he established himself as a mer- 
chant tailor, in which he continued until 1832. 
During, the great cholera epidemic he left the city 
and resided for a time in Dutchess county. On the 
abatement of the epidemic he returned to the city 
and his business until 1837, when he sold out his 
business in New York and removed to Victory, N. Y., 
where he built a shop and established the tailoring 
business at Victory Centre. In 1839 returned to New 
York city and formed a co-partnership with Mn 
Nathaniel A. Knapp at 33 Maiden lane and 19 
Courtland street ; they were very successful ; dissolving 
in 1854, they divided about $100,000 between them. 
After the dissolution he established himself in the 
manufacturing and jobbing clothing business in 
Murray street and at 256 Broadway, associating 
with him his two brothers, William and James, and 
continued until the panic of '57, when the heavy 
failures of his debtors swept him into an assignment 
from which he never again recovered his business 

In July, 1866, his wife went to the country for 
a few days of recuperation leaving him alone in his 


Eart of the house, and on Sunday, the 20th of July, 
e was out the most of the day and was seen by the 
people living in the other part of the house to return 
at evening. At near midnight he was heard moan- 
ing, and on going to him he was unable to converse; 
a physician and his daughter, who resided near by, 
were at once summoned, but he died without being 
able to tell any of the experiences of his last day in 
life. He was buried in his own lot in Greenwood, 
where his remains repose by the side of his departed 
dear ones. His death was supposed to have been the 
result of a sunstroke, as the day previous to his 
death was an extremely hot one. His widow having 
inherited from a relative a legacy of over $70,000, 
purchased a handsome residence at 541 Franklin 
avenue, where she died May 22, 1883, and was buried 
by the side of her husband's remains at Greenwood. 

Children of Bnna B. and ]>orinda A. Boogbton. 480S 

4.304 i. Gertrude Minerva Boughton, b. New York citv, 
April 8, 1827. Her infantile life was remarkably 
beautiful, she possessed an understanding of religious 
subjects far beyond her years, and seemed to impress 
those about her with the idea that she was better 

• suited to a home in heaven than on earth. She died 
in New York city, Sept. 13, 1836. 

4.305 ii. Daniel Webster Boughton, b. New York city, 
Aug. 4, 1835. He was a remarkably beautiful child, 
winning the admiration of those who saw him and 
heard his conversation at only about the age of one 
year. He died Dec. 23, 1836, at New York city, and 
was buried at Greenwood. 

4.306 iii. Lucy Adelaide Boughton, b. New York city, 
March 12, 1833. At the age of but three or four years 
she was seized with measles which left her deaf, and 
as a consequence she soon lost her knowledge of 
language and became mute. Her parents feeling 
greatly afficted in her loss of hearing determined to 
as far as possible compensate for her loss by educa- 
tion; she was sent to the New York Deaf and Dumb 
Institution (as it was called), to be educated, where, 
under the tuition of David E. Bartlett, she completed 
her course and graduated with the approbation of 
the faculty in July, 1850, after which she went home 
to reside with her parents in New York city. 

She married at East 35th street, New York city.

Oct. 2, I860, William Henry Myers (son of Bernard 
and Abigail Myers), of Brooklyn, N. Y., where he 
was born Oct. 26, 1834. He, too, having lost his 
hearing in childhood, was educated at the Deaf and 
Dumb Institute, New York city. They settled in 
Brooklyn where he carried on a bakery and confec- 
tionery business, from which he retired in 1883, and 
was living with his wife at her residence 541 Franklin 
avenue, JBrooklyn; after selling her house, 641 
Franklin avenue, she purchased 549 Halsey street, 
Brooklyn, where they res., 1889. 

4.307 iv. Gertrude Augusta Boughton, b. Victory, Ca- 
yuga county, N. Y., March 8, 1838. She was bom 
mute and at the age of eight years was sent to the 
New York Institute for Deaf-Mutes, where she ac- 
quired a good education, graduated and returned to 
live with her parents, where she continued until the 
summer of 1876 she went to visit friends in Cayuga 
county when she lecame acquainted with Mr. Samuel 
Allen Taber, of Scipio, Cayuga county, son of William 
Taber, of Scipio, where he was bom Jan. 27, 1829, 
and they were married at 975 Fulton street, Brooklyn, 
Jan. 4, 1877, and settled on his farm at Scipio, where 
they still resided in the autumn of 1885, never having 
had any children. In spring of 1886 they bought a 
handsome residence in Auburn, N. Y., where they 
wereUving at No. 9 Hamilton avenue in 1889. 

4.308 V. Eliza Kunaanna Boughton, b. New York city, 
July 26, 1842. In infancy she manifested unusual 
intelligence and at her death she seemed to have 
anticipated the approaching 'glory, and she happily 
passed the mortal bourne April 11, 1850, aged nearly 
eight years. 

4.309 iii. Eliza Boughton, b. CUnton, Dutchess Co., N. Y., 
Oct. 14, 1811. By reason of the poor health of her 
mother during her childhood she very early learned 
to be helpful in household cares, and displayed an 
aptitude unusual in one so young. At the age of 
about fifteen years she was sent to the Friends' board- 
ing school at Nine Partners, where religious instruction 
as well as school education was enjoyed, and on her 
return to her home she devoted herself and all her 
energies to the interests of the family; moving with 
them to Victory in 1834, she continued to have the 
principal charge of the family until May 20, 1842, 


when she married Ebenezer L. Wanzer, of Ledyard, 
Cayuga county, N. Y., son of Husted and Lucy 
Leach Wanzer, of Quaker Hill, N. T., where he was 
born Dec. 20, 1795. He was a widower with seven 
children, all living at home, among whom she went 
and enjoyed the greatest respect and esteem as long 
as she hved. He was a successful farmer while his 
health lasted, but for several years prior to his death 
his health was not sufBcient for the arduous duties to 
which he had .been accustomed, and he sold his large 
farm and bought a smaller one adjoining the one he 
sold, and by will left the use of his real and personal 
estate to his widow during her life. 

Together they made several toui's of visitation to 
the quarterly meetings belonging to the section where 
they lived, and, as public Friends, were highly 
esteemed in the society. After a somewhat pro- 
tracted illness he died June 19, 1874:, at his home in 
Ledyard and was buried in Friends' burying ground 

After his death she continued to live upon the 
farm, and, as health and opportunity permitted, 
engaged in doing good to the needy until, in the 
effort, her own health and strength gave way, and 
she died, in a bright hope of a joyful meeting with 
parents and loved ones in heaven, on Sept. 7, 1883, 
aged nearly seventy-two years, and was buried in 
Friends' burying ground at Ledyard, where a plain 
stone marks the place. She never had any children. 
4,810 iv. William Leason Boughton, b. Clinton, N. Y., 
August 27, 1814. At the age of fourteen he was sent 
to Friends' boarding school at Nine Partnei-s, after 
which he lived with his parents and learned the 
tailor's trade with his father, but in the latter part of 
his minority devoted his time to farming, and in 
April, 1S31, on the removal of his parents from 
Washington, Dutchess county, to Victory, Cayuga 
county, N. Y., he being nearly twenty years old, 
• drove his father's team, with a load of goods, from 
Washington to Victory, a distance of about four 
hundred miles. To his energy and ability the suc- 
cess of the few years followmg this removal was 
largely due. Uncleared lands lying useless were to 
be brought under cultivation, the sturdy forest trees 
to be converted into lumber, and a new dwelling to 
be erected — ^all of which was accomplished before the

end of three years, and largely the result of his per- 
sonal efforts. 

November 14, 1838, he married Diana Ann Morton 
(daughter of Rev. Otis and Nancy Gibhs Morton), 
from Hubbardtown, Vt., where she was born Jan. 
17, 1823. They settled at Victory and farmed his 
father's land and taught school during the winter at 
Conquest and at near Clyde in Wayne county, N. Y. 

In 1845 they moved to New York city, where he 
worked as cutter in clothing stores, and in 1848 
moved his family to Milwaukee, Wis., where he went 
to take charge of a clothing store for (his brother) 
Boughton & Knapp. The climate of Milwaukee not 
seeming to agree with her, she made a visit to her 
cousin, Mrs. Davis, on Cal well's Prairie, where soon 
after she died June 27, 1 850, and was buried in the 
cemetery two miles west of Waterford, Wis., where 
a marble tablet bears the following inscription: 

Sacred to the Memory 



Wife of William Bouohton, 
Who Died 

June 27. 1850. 


After her death he returned to New York city to 
engage in his former occupation, and on July 4, 1851, 
he married second, widow Maria Ann Rockwell, and 
settled in New York city, and subsequently moved 
to Brooklyn, where they continued to live untU 
spring of 1857, when owing to the depression of 
business in New York city they moved to Ashkum, 
Iroquois county, 111. The climate proved unhealthy 
and after some weeks of malaria fever she died Dec. 
11, 1857, and was buried a quarter of a mile west of 
Ashkum depot at a place selected for a burying 

The following spring, March, 1858, he returned to 
New York city, where on the 15th of August, 1860, 
he married third, Mary Eliza Goodell (dau. of Joseph 
and Melinda Goodell), formerly of Waterford, N. Y., 
where she was born Oct. 7, 1832. They settled on a 
farm near New Brunswick, N. J., moving the follow- 
ing year to Newark, and subsequently sold the 
Newark property and bought at Bncksburgh, N. J., 


where they lived and carried on the clothing business 
for several years; moved to Mt. Kisco, N. Y., and 
again returned to New York city and worked at cutting 
clothing at Elfelt & Levy's, his family residing at 
Asbury Park and Bricksburgh (now Lakewood), 
where they were living in autumn of 1886. He 
being at the time on a visit at his daughter's, Helen 
A. Rice, at Waterford, Racine county, Wisconsin. 
He moved subsequently to Trenton, N. J., where they 
were living, 1889.

4,811 i. Charles Augustus Boughton (son of William 
and Diana Ann Boughton), born Victory, Cayuga 
county, N. Y., July 18, 1841, moved to Illinois with 
his parents, where he lived until the call of the 
government for volunteers for the army to put down 
the southern rebellion, when he went to Camp Douglas 
near Chicago, HI., and enlisted in the 42d Regiment 
Illinois Vols., Col. Roberts' 20th Army Corps. He 
served in Tennessee under Gen. Rosecrans, and was 
assigned to the duty of carrying the mail from the 
base to the front, often through perilous routes 
infested by the enemy. Was seized with camp fever 
and sent to hospital at St. Louis, where after suffi- 
cient recovery to leave was discharged and sent home 
unfit for the service, with constitution so much 
impaired as never to have fully recovered. 

On his return to Chicago he*^ married Nov. 8, 1864, 
Sarah Aurora Field (dau. of Seargent and Sarah 
Field), formerly of Peacham, Vt., where she was 
bom Jan. 7, 1842; settled in Chicago, and in 1870 
moved to Williamsburgh, Kansas, where he pur- 
chased a farm, but owing to the grasshopper plague, 
which continued until his means were nearly ex- 
hausted, he returned to Chicago, Dl., and embarked 
in the restaurant business, which prospered for a 
time and then again he found himself witnout means 
and moved his family to Cayuga county, N. Y., 
where at Levana, on the Cayujgalake, they resided,

4.325 V. Edward Hicks Boughton (son of Thaddeus and 
Lucy Rockwell Boaghton), b. Washington, Dutchess 
county, N. Y., Oct. 11, 1819; very early in life he 
manifested a great desire for literary attainments, 
which increased with years, and before he had 
attained the age of sixteen years he had qualified 
himself for a teacher and entered upon that employ- 
ment; but, finding it did not meet his taste as a voca- 
tion, he effected an arrangement with the celebrated 
Dr. Samuel Thompson, of Geddes, N. Y., the 
founder of the Thompsonian system of medicine, 
to learn his system, and practiced for a time at his 
infirmary. He subsequently practiced that system in 
Cayuga and the adjoining counties, but not being 
pleased with the life and duties of a practicing physi- 
cian, he turned his attention to the art of photogra- 
phy, which he continued to follow as a business until 
the death of his brother-in-law, Ebenezer L. Wanzer, 
in June, 1874; he took up his abode with his sister, 
Mrs. Wanzer, and turned his attention to farming 
until her death, in September, 1883, since which,

he remained, working on the farm with his father. 
In the winter of 1837-8 there was a revival meeting 
held in the Methodist church in the neighborhood of 

468 BouTON-BouGHTON Family. 

his home in which he became interest'ed, awakened 
and converted, but owing to the unwillingness of his 
father did not unite at that time with the Methodist 
church. On the following April, in company with 
a neighboring boy, they set out on foot to go to the 
city of New York, to find some business more con- 
genial than a farmer life in Cayuga cormtv. The 
tender admonitions of a loving mother, on the sepa- 
ration for a home in the great, wicked city of New 
York, ever proved a helpful restraint against tiie 
many evil devices afterward encountered in a life- 
time in that great centre of immorality. After nearly 
a year spent in the city and at Dutchess county he 
returned to Victory for a short time, and then went 
to Marengo, Wayne county, N. Y., to learn the house 
carpenter trade with Robert Palmer, of that j^ce. 
In the autumn of 1839 he again went to New i ork 
city, in the employ of Dea. Hetfield, of Scotch Plains, 
N. J., with a drove of sheep, via Milford, Pa. Arriv- 
ing at New York, obtained employment in grocery 
store of R. H. Atwell, 881 Broadway, and subse- 
quently with Benjamin Wooster, of 187 Houston 
street. New York, where for several years he was 
employed, during which time the duty oi uniting with 
the church was felt, and application was made, 
through the pastor. Elder George Benedict, to unite 
with tne Norfolk Street Baptist church, then standing 
on the comer of Norfolk and Broome streets. On 
Sept. 4, 1842, he was baptized at the head of Water 
street in the East river, and the same day received 
into full fellowship of that church. 

It was here that an acquaintance was formed that 
eventuated in the marriage of Eliza Jane Terhune 
(daughter of Richard and Elizabeth TalUck Terhune), 
of New York city, where she was born May 11, 1825. 
They were married by Elder George Benedict, in the 
Norfolk Street Baptist church, at 8 p. m.. May 2, 1844, 
and departs the following day for their nome on 
the farm of his father at Victory, N. Y., where they 
remained until the following April, when they 
returned to New York city, workmg at the house 
carpentering business until spring of 1849, when he 
embarked m the retail grocery business at corner 
Broome and Lewis streets, remaining but one year in 
that business, when he secured a clerkship in a whole- 
sale provision store in West street, comer Murray 


where for several years he was employed as sales- 
man. In spring of 1853 he established himself in the 
wholesale provision and commission business, which 
he sold out to join his brother Ruua in the manufac- 
turing clothing business, and during the business 
revulsion of 1857 left that business and moved his 
family on to a farm at Ashkum, Iroquois county, 111., 
where, after one year, on account of the climate, they 
were obliged to leave, and returned to Brooklyn, 
N. Y. 

In April, 1861, through Mr. William D. Mangum, 
a prominent officer in the New York Produce Ex- 
change Co., he obtained the appointment of superin- 
tendent of that institution, which he held with great 
satisfaction tohi^employersand to himself for the next 
twelve years, when , on a reorganization of the insti- 
tution, he resij^ed his position, against the advice of 
the leading officers and many of his best friends. 

Following the resignation of superintendent of New 
York Produce Exchange he purchased a third interest 
in the building firm of Hagerman & Alexander, and 
among the several houses they built the following 
year was the one for himself, in which he now 
resides, at 223 Keap street. The firm of Hagerman, 
Alexander & Bough ton dissolved in spring of 1876, 
and he organized a grocery business on Fourth street, 
Brooklyn, which, rfter four years, he closed out at 
auction, to take a clerkship in a paper commission 
house in New York city, which he continued until 
summer of 1885, and in April, 1889, was appointed 
messenger of the Fifth Avenue Bank, Brooklyn. 

In the year 1883 his mind was unusually impressed 
with the subject of the history of his early ancestors, 
and, with a desire to become better acquainted with 
it, opened a correspondence with sucn relatives as 
were known to him, which soon decided him in the 
undertaking which, after six yeai's of constant appli- 
cation to the object, has resulted in completing a 
genealogy of the Boutons and Boughtons of this 
country which it is hoped will be appreciated to a 
degree at least approximating the and expense 
he has contributed gratuitously for this object, for 
the love and respect he bears his race and kindr^.

ments in the place of prayer in the ** house of God," 
July 20, 1875; after Dr. Read's resignation and 
departure he was restored by a unanimous vote in 
1879, which restoration was promoted largely by 
the influence of the present pastor, Daniel C. Eddy, 
D.D., wliose most cordial and kindly fellowship has 
continued unbroken until the present date, 1889.
