DODGE GENEALOGY 



1. Tkistram Dodge, according to Robert Dodge's Tristram 
Dodge and Descendants (1886), sailed April, 1661, from Taunton, 
Mass., with the original fifteen settlers and their families and 
settled on Block Island, Rhode Island. Rev. S. T. Livermore, 
A.M., in his History of Block Island (1876), page 17, names 
Tristram Dodge as one of the passengers in the shallop which 
sailed from Taunton, 1661, and he says on page 327 that, although 
he was not among the first purchasers, he was among the first 
party of settlers. The following, taken from the records of New 
Shoreham (Block Island), Rhode Island, would indicate that 
Tristram Dodge closely followed the first settlers if he did not 
come with them : 

"To All Persons to Whom This Testimony Shall Appear: 

"Know Ye, I, Simon Ray of Block Island, being eighty-one 
years of age and now upon oath doth testify and declare that on 
ye first erecting and settleing of s'd Block Island there was some 
undivided land reserved by ye first purchasers for to accommo- 
date fishermen for promoting of a fishing trade, and Tristram 
Dodge Sr. a fisherman came from Newfoundland and ye freeholders 
willing for to settle him on s'd Island, gave unto him said Tris- 
tram Dodge three acres of land unto him and his heirs forever 
which land ordered by freeholders for to be measured unto him 
said Dodge situated and being on ye South East of ye Harbor 
that now is joining to the land of John Rathbon. 

"And unto ye truth of this testimony I set to my hand, 

"Simost Rat, Warden.* 

"Block Island, Feb. 28, 1718-19." 

Harris' Block Island Epitaphs, p. 10, says the grave of the elder 
Tristram is not marked. 

Descendants of David Britain 3 Dodge (John, 2 Tristram 1 ) have 
carefully preserved records that say that the sons of Tristram 
followed him in 1667, and that they came from the north of 
England near the river Tweed. This statement is entitled to much 

*Simon Ray, Sr., d. 17 March, 1737, age 101. (g. s.) Block Island 
(N. E. H. & G. Reg., Vol. XIII, p. 38). He had by wife Mary,;dau. of 
Nathaniel Thomas of Marshfield.^Mass., the following children: Sibel, b. 
March 19, 1665; Mary, b. May 19, 1667; Dorothy, b. Oct. 16, 1669; Simon, 
b. April 9, 1672, d. March 9, 1755. Simon Ray, Jr. , had two daughters, 
who married governors of Rhode Island, viz., Anna, m. Samuel Ward, 
and Catherine, m. William Greene.

consideration, as it is corroborated by many families scattered 
widely over the United States. Tristram Dodge, Sr., was Free- 
man May 4, 1664; Sergeant, 1676. He was dead intestate in 
1720. His four sons were made Freemen July, 1670, and of 
course then of age. Children, order not known : 

2. i. John 2 , b. 1644, d. 1729, aged 85. 

3. ii. Israel. 

4. iii. Tristram, b. 1647, d. Aug. 18, 1733, "in ye 87th year of his 

age, " says his slate gravestone in the ancient burial ground 
at Block Island. 

5. iv. William. 

v. Margaret. We have no record of her except that given by 
John C. Cooley of Oswego, N. Y., in his Rathbone Gene- 
alogy (1898). He says John 3 Rathbone (John 2 , Richard 1 ), 
b. about 1634, married Margaret Dodge, dau. of Trustarum 
Dodge. Children : 

1. Thomas Rathbone, b. 1657, m. Mary Dickens.

5. Joseph Rathbone, b. 1670, m. Mary Mosber. 

6. Samuel Rathbone, b. 1672, m. Patience Coggshall. 

vi. Ann, given as a dau. of Tristram Sr. in Austin's Gen. Die, 
p. 66. In view of the above record in the Rathbone Gen. 
this statement would seem to be an error. New Shore- 
ham records say Ann Dodge m. Nov. 11, 1686, John 
Rathbone, Jr. , d. 1723, son of John, d. 1702, and Margaret 
Rathbone. The Rathbone Gen. says Ann was second wife 
and adds that her father settled on Block Island in 1662 and 
d. 1723, but fails to mention his name. Her children : 

1. Mary 3 Rathbone, b. Oct. 3, 1688. 

2. Jonathan Rathbone, b. May 22, 1691.

3. Israel 2 Dodge {Tristram 1 ). Freeman, July, 1670, in Block 

Island. Oct. 1, 1720, Israel Dodge of New London, late 
of Block Island, sold land located in Block Island, formerly 
belonging to his father Tristram, to his brothers John, Tris- 
tram and William of Block Island. He was on a farm in 
North Parish (Montville), New London, Conn., in 1694. 
In 1705 the Queen's Court reported him settled there on 
Indian Fields. As the New London records were burned 
by Benedict Arnold Sep. 6, 1781, it is difficult to give dates 
concerning his family. Baptisms by Rev. Jas. Hillhouse, 
Second Cong. Church of North Parish, supply the following 
names of Israel's children and grandchildren. He appears 
to have disposed of all his real estate before his death. In 
1707 he bought land in Montville of Samuel Rogers. In 
1719 he and wife Hannah gave his son John a part of this 
land. In 1725 John sells same land to his brother Israel 
for £40. Israel Sr. gave some of this land to his sons William 
and Samuel, and they sell sixteen acres of it in 1725 to their 
brother Israel. In 1727 Israel Sr. gives more of this land to 
son Samuel, "all of his own farm except improved part," 
latter to fall to Samuel when Israel Sr. and wife die. In 
1722 Israel gave some of this Montville land to son Thomas, 
"near John's portion," deed made out at Norwich. In 1724 
Israel gives son Israel more of this land. In 1730 Samuel 
Dodge sells land in Montville "where Israel Dodge now 
lives" (probably brother Israel) to Gideon Comstock for £42, 
and this was doubtless after the death of his father and 
mother when the homestead had fallen to him, "said land 
beginning at the highway that goes to Colchester." Robert 
Dodge, in his Tristram Dodge and Descendants, p. 136 et seq. , 
has got Israel and his family badly mixed up. Children from 
church records :

(Hanover Church Rec.) Nov. 22, 1787, Mrs. Martha Shaw, 
who survived him and d. about 1827. John Dodge Jr. sold 
land in Canterbury, Conn., March 30, 1770, to Ephraim 
Adams. Benjamin Smith and Dorcas Dodge, administrators 
on estate of Joel Dodge, late of Canterbury, removed judg- 
ment against John Dodge Jr. dated 4th Tuesday of June, 
1772. John Dodge Jr. deeded a farm on the banks of Little 
River to pay a debt he owed Joel Dodge. This was probably 
the homestead which lies near the town line. As they were 
Baptists the Dodges went to the Hanover Church instead of 
the Congregational Church in Canterbury. They at one 
time attended the Brunswick Church (so called), which was 
in the s.e. part of the present town of Scotland, Conn. The 
old Dodge place was later included in the limits of the Han- 
over Society, whose records show that several were received 
from the Brunswick church. The record of death of John 
Dodge Jr. and his wife Elizabeth and his marriage to Mrs. 
Martha Shaw was discovered in the Hanover Church Rec. 

Copy of letter in the possession of Dr. John L. Dodge of 
Groton, Conn., written to Hon. Andrew T. Judson, by Hub- 
bard Adams of Canterbury, Conn. , Jan. 12, 1852 : 

"Dear Sir: — By your request and the wishes of Mr. Dodge 
[Dr. N. Dodge 2d], I have endeavored to get the pedigree 
of the Dodge family, which I think is correct. 



DODGE GENEALOGY 17 

"Mr. Dodge [John] came into Canterbury something like 
ninety years ago, and settled on the bank of Little River, 
near what was then called Brown's Mills. He was a black- 
smith by trade and made many instruments for the husband- 
man that were of use, such as broadaxes, steelyards, etc. I 
have now in my use a broadaxe and pair of steelyards as true 
as a die. 

"As it respects his family, they were as follows: Mr. John 
Dodge married for his first wife Miss Lydia Eogers, with 
whom he lived and raised a large family, and they were as 
follows: Jordan, John, Israel, Josiah, Lydia, Elizabeth, 
Jeremiah, and Nehemiah. Elizabeth Dodge died when a 
young lady. Lydia Dodge married Mr. Richard Winchester, 
and lived in Canterbury a number of years, and then moved 
to the far west. Mr. D. for his second wife married Miss 
Elizabeth Willis, with whom he lived a number of years. 
She also died, and left no children. For his third wife he 
married Mrs. Martha Shaw. He then died himself. The 
widow died something like twenty-five years ago. The old 
mansion ground is plain to be seen. The ground that the old 
blacksmith shop stood on is very visible to this day. There 
are within six rods of the mansion ground the graves of five 
of the family, namely, Mr. Dodge, and his two first wives 
and two daughters, one an infant. At the graves there are 
no monuments of intelligence, nothing more than a simple 
stone. The family have all been gone from the neighbor- 
hood for many years, but are fresh in the memory of the 
neighbors. I live within about sixty rods of the old place, 
and pass by it almost every day. 

[Signed] "Hubbard Adams. 

"P. S. — The first wife was a very pious and devoted Chris- 
tian, and quite gifted in religious exhortation. The second 
wife was also religious, but not as gifted in talent. Their 
place of going to meeting was at the Brunswick meeting- 
house, Baptist, standing over the line in the Society of Scot- 
land. The first wife wrote poetry, and Mrs. Peck, an aged 
lady, now says that Mrs. Dodge would talk equal to any 
minister. Mr. John Dodge used very often to speak the 
names of his children arranged so as to rhyme, as follows : 

"Jordan and John, 
Israel and Josiah, 
Lydia and Elizabeth, 
Jere and Miah." 

The foregoing copy of letter was sent me by Miss Julia E. 
Dodge of Morristown, N. J. Miss Dodge finds in her cor- 
respondence that John Dodge, in speaking of his three wives, 
compared them with "Heaven, Earth, and Hell." Miss 
Anna Bowles Williams of Springfield, Mass. , has assisted in 
fixing the parentage of John Dodge Jr., which has hitherto 



18 DODGE GENEALOGY 

been unknown. His first seven children are of record in 
Colchester, Conn. , and all of them are recorded at Canter- 
bury, Conn. The first seven were probably born in Colches- 
ter, as they are all entered together in Canterbury records. 
The rest of the children are entered in Canterbury records 
at intervals. Children: 

32. i. Jordan, 5 b. Aug. 6, 1749, d. Sept. 23, 1828. 

ii. Col. John, b. July 12, 1751. Removed to Kaskaskia, Ills. In 
1782 Patrick Henry, Governor of Virginia, appointed him 
to command the Illinois country. His brother Israel held a 
commission under him. John Dodge before the Revolution 
had been an Indian trader at Sandusky, and few men were 
better acquainted with the Indians. Being in sympathy 
with the Revolution, he was taken prisoner as a "suspect" 
by the British, and after a long and cruel captivity at 
Detroit, was sent in irons to Quebec, whence he managed 
to escape within the American lines. Governor Jefferson 
had taken him into his confidence and had appointed him an 
Indian agent in 1780. Nothing is known of his descendants.

in Canterbury, Conn., Oct. 22, 1769, Lucy 6 Adams, b. Can- 
terbury, Conn., March 23, 1752, d. Vermont, May 8, 1831, 
dau. and eldest child of Levi 6 and Margaret (Perkins) Adams 
(David, 4 Jonathan, 3 Lieut. Thomas," Henry 1 of Braintree, who 
came 1640). The ancestry of President John 6 Adams was 
Dea. John, 4 Joseph, 3 Joseph, 2 Henry 1 of Braintree. Levi 6 
Adams was a Eevolutionary soldier, and was at New Lon- 
don, Conn., at the capture of Fort Griswold by the British. 
He and his three sons escaped, but two Adams brothers were 
murdered there. Lieut. Thomas 2 Adams was lieutenant of 
a military company at Chelmsford, Mass., which his brother 
Capt. Samuel Adams commanded. Lucy 6 (Adams) Dodge 
was granddaughter of David Adams, who m. Dorcas Paine, 
a descendant of Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower. Thus 
the descendants of Jordan Dodge are entitled to membership 
in the Eevolutionary, Colonial and Mayflower societies by 
the ancestry of his wife Lucy. 

Jordan Dodge was a celebrated Baptist minister of his 
time. Not much is known of his early life. He was a 
worker in iron, like his father and many of his family. He 
made some inventions in nail-making appliances. He was 
pastor Baptist Church at Sturbridge, Mass., from Oct. 27, 
1784, to 1788 (see Hist. Worcester Co., Mass.). Larned's 
Hist, of Windham Co., Conn., p. 246, says that Jordan 
Dodge preached in Hampton, Conn., after 1776, much to the 
annoyance of the settled pastors but with the result that 
many were converted that would not have been reached by 
the regular clergy. The same work states, p. 231, that 
about this time Jordan Dodge, a zealous Baptist itinerant, 
held meetings in Scotland, Conn., that resulted in revivals, 
the converts joining the Baptist congregation in neighboring 
towns. He removed from Sturbridge, Mass., to Granville, 
N. Y., 1789. In 1792 he was called to the ministry of 
Granville, where he officiated as pastor until Sept. 13, 1800. 
He is found in Pair Haven, Vt., in 1804. Eev. N. S. S. Bea- 
man, D.D., says in Adams' History of Fair Haven, Vt.: 

"Among the patrons of my school I may mention Mr. 
Dodge, a Baptist preacher, who seemed to maintain a kind 
of independent position in his relations. Two of his chil- 
dren, a son and a daughter, I well recollect. The girl was 
older than myself, and was the best scholar in the school, 
and the boy had a spice of his father's eccentricity. The 
lads made the fires by turns, and there had been some 
neglect on this subject, and we had suffered for several 
mornings in consequence. It was young Dodge's turn to 
make the fire in the morning. The preceding evening I 
gave strict orders to have the former nuisance abated if the 
officer in charge had to sit up all night and burn up the 
entire woodpile at the door. In the morning the sanctum 



24 DODGE GENEALOGY 

was warm as the tropics, and little Dodge sat demurely study- 
ing his lesson in the corner. 

"I have spoken of the peculiarities of the elder Dodge. 
One anecdote used to be related in Fair Haven in that day 
which may be forgotten now. The messenger of peace 
worked six days for his daily bread, and dispensed the gospel 
on the seventh. He was employed as a bloomer (rather, 
nailer) in the Fair Haven Iron Works. One day a dispute 
took place between Elder Dodge and a fellow laborer, and 
after the preacher had invoked all the patience he had to his 
aid in vain, he threw down his tongs and straightened him- 
self up to his full height, threw off his black coat and said: 
'Lie there, divinity, till I do this man justice.' 

"I heard the elder preach once in the school house, but 
never in the 'Lord's barn,' as it was then generally called, 
whether excluded by the elements or by church authority I am 
not able to say. He was a man of talents and wit. His son I 
met a few years since, in the town of Black Brook, in Essex 
County, N. Y. He [John Adams Dodge] is a respectable 
Baptist clergyman, and he very pleasantly reminded me of 
the incident of fire-making in the old school house in Fair 
Haven, in 1804, sixty- five years ago." 

From Adams' History of Fair Haven, Vt.: "Elder Jordan 
Dodge was a Baptist preacher, resident here in 1804, and is 
said to have been really the first settled minister of the 
town. He preached in the school house and in private 
houses, and a portion of the time at the church in Hamp- 
ton. He lived, at one time, on the south side of West 
Street, beyond the old burying ground; at another, and 
perhaps later period, on the north side of the street running 
past the iron works, then called Johnnycake Lane, hav- 
ing a shop on the rocks above the iron works, where he is 
said to have worked at his trade of nail-making. Dr. Bea- 
man represents him as a bloomer, working in the forge dur- 
ing the week, and preaching on Sunday. He was a man of 
excitable temper, eccentric, naturally talented, and witty. 
Numerous anecdotes and stories are told concerning him, all 
similarly characteristic. 

"It is related that, as he had some trouble in the church, 
the church taking him to discipline for some violence on his 
part, he felt himself persecuted, and remarked that an 
apple-tree which held many clubs in its branches was clubbed 
on account of the superior quality of its fruit, when one 
hearing it replied that sometimes trees were clubbed because 
of great hornets' nests contained in them." 

In his later years he resided at Monkton, Vt., but he trav- 
eled extensively, spreading the gospel throughout the land. 
He was considered a powerful preacher, and was welcomed 
by the people wherever he appeared. By request, he 



DODGE GENEALOGY 25 

preached to the legislature at Albany, N. Y., and was pre- 
sented with $200, and a cloak costing $75, which he always 
wore. When he returned home and was asked why the legis- 
lators were so generous to him, he replied that he "prayed 
for all the big men." Some of his writings appeared in 
print, and the writer of this has a small pamphlet of twelve 
pages in which he answers certain religious questions, 
entirely in rhyme. The following lines were written by him 
in 1818, while on one of his tours, and will serve to show the 
costume of the time : 

"Dear Children you would laugh I guess 
To hear of your old fathers dress. 
A shirt of english flannel red 
Drawers of the same when go to bed. 
Over, a cotton shirt thats white 
Which keeps me warm both day and night. 
A vest, coat, and a Jacket oer 
And lined so thick warms every pore, 
A broad cloth coat well lined with baze 
So warm that warmth a life doth raise. 
I've a greate coat down to my feet 
With a rich cape half way doth meet 
While my old cloke as it is sed 
Is warmer than a coverled. 
Over my drawers are overalls 
With thick yarn stockings as some calls. 
With Jonathans warm shoes well lined 
And over them a cover find. 
My hat has a rich velvet case 
Green silk the underside doth face. 
Dear Achsahs gloves I still have got 
Covered with quilted mittens hot. 
There's one thing more I'de not forget 
The furniture of my old neck. 
Linen, silk handkerchief and sash 
Cost more than five dollars in cash. 
The faithful muse she sweetly sings 
Bless God for these inferior things, 
But if you worship them as God 
You sure will feal his chasning rod." 

The following letters are given in full, as they illustrate 
the life and hardships that the traveling preacher endured 
on the frontier. 

Letter written Nov. 18, 1818, by Rev. Jordan Dodge to Ms 
daughter, Achsah Tinker, of Lyme, Conn.: 

"My Dear Children: — By this you are informed your poor 
old father is just recovered of a serious sickness by which he 
was brought as low as any time in life in the length of time, 
by a disorder, common to the place, what is called the bloody 
flux or desentary. I was taken ill after a meeting, where I 
preached to (as supposed) a thousand people. Six or seven 
ministers present. I spake two hours and ten minutes then 
fainted, such a day I seldom ever saw. I told the people I 



26 DODGE GENEALOGY 

felt as if my days were numbered and I giving my last 
address. Every heart appeared affected. A stranger invited 
me home. Everything was done for me that could be done. 
They sent to town for a Doctor who was a father, brother 
and friend. By the mercy of a kind God whose governing 
hand cast me among kind friends, I recovered and am now 
comfortable. Since I wrote to you I have passed through 
many trying scenes, too tedious and perhaps not profitable to 
relate, but in general terms I can with pleasure say the Lord 
has been kind to me, a poor old sinner. I must be as concise 
as I can. My nerves are too affected. I can scarcely make 
a letter, I must omit many things. After I left my sister 
with whom I had a most agreeable interview, together with 
the connections, I drove several hundred of miles to a place 
called Sinsinnati, a city on the Ohio (400 miles from Pitts- 
burg) to see a daughter of my brother Israel. I found her 
and knew her soon as I saw her and she me, and called each 
other by name, by the image we saw of her father. She is 
near a perfect beauty, 30 years old. Buried her first hus- 
band three years ago, left her and three children as she told 
me thirty thousand dollars. She had a great property by 
her father. She owned the City Hotel which she rented 
with several other houses and plantations. She is a woman 
of great and good abilities, married to a young man of 25 
years, a methodist minister. They appeared to be trans- 
ported beyond measure to see me, hung on my neck and 
wept, soon invited me to stay with them till Spring. I 
stayed but a few days and left them. I preached nearly 
every day, going and coming. She said a great deal of her 
brother Henry at the Illinois. Said if I would go to see him 
he would give me 1000 dollars. I had heard much of him 
before by my sisters and others. It is said he was so great 
a general in the late war as Bonaparte. He has been high 
sheriff, treasurer of the District and collector. Considered 
the greatest man in the territory except the governor and it 
is said he is beyond him. The office of high sheriff is a 
lucrative office. He was envied by high charactors, accused 
with being confederate with Burr, on which the governor 
took from him his office. The Supream Judge informed the 
governor he could not sleep safe in his bed, as his house 
would not stand a month as General Dodge was called the poor 
mans friend and had paid $1000 of his own money to help 
poor families and many of these poor men were like Rageing 
Lyons. After being tryed by the court he was acquited with 
honour and resumed his office. I should have gone to see 
him 800 miles, but the marches so bad by land, and water 
low, and very sickly and as my sister had advised me not to 
venture I gave up. I had calculated to cross the mountains 
into the Carolinies 600 miles to see Lydia. But I was so weak 



DODGE GENEALOGY 27 

by sickness and informed it was bad crosing and through a 
wilderness at this season, I feared my friends would blame 
me. I conclude to return 400 miles to the city of Pittsburg 
where I had preached four months having acquaintances and 
friends all the way, turned my route, am now on my way, 
the Lord only knows what is before me. I am attacked 
severely with the Ehumatticks, all my consolation is I am in 
the care of a kind preserver, who has hitherto raised up 
friends among strangers yea and among enemies who would 
rob me of all I have if they could for a trifle. It is costly 
traveling in many parts but I have money I hope sufficient to 
pay expenses. I have clothing enough of every sort, a 
strong able horse and carriage and I hope in good time to 
see my dear friends in New England once more. I am 
troubled about your poor old mother. I was much pleased 
to hear in your letter that Mr. Tinker sent her some help 
for which he has my warmest thanks. I was happy my dear 
Achsah to learn your tenderness to the poor afflicted widow 
Sena. I can but just give a hint of matters as I have many 
to mention and that as familiarly as speaking face to face. 
I know you wish to learn every particular relative to your 
poor father as it must be near a miracle if ever you see him 
again, but not greater than what a kind G-od has done for 
him ever since he left you. I am surprised at myself, how a 
kind God continues my abilities. I preach to courts, to 
Judges, Lawyers, preachers of every order and the greatest 
criticks. Last week I gave a discorce to the court. The 
states attorney told the gentlemen where I lodged next day, 
it was the most instructive that he ever heard delivered 
within the court house walls, would be willing to give a dol- 
lar every night to hear the like (he had contributed a silver 
dollar the evening before). A kind God was pleased to 
carry me beyond my self, as I seldom was ever more feeble. 
Join with me my dear children to praise him for his wonder- 
ful goodness to the poor, old broken vessel, who is fast decay- 
ing. I wish to hear from you dear creatures, but how shall I? 
You may direct a letter as you did before to the Post Office 
at Washington, County of Washington, State of Pensylvaney 
to the care of Heugh Wilson Esq. , merchant. Should I live 
to get there I could have the agreeable and animated satis- 
faction of hearing from my wife and children. Doubtless 
you wish to know the reason I did not like to stay at your 
rich cousin Nancy's, once Dodge. I shall say but a few 
words. She was so taken with her young husband 25 years 
old an irishman not worth a dollar. She married him for 
his religion. I believe him to be a man of some abilities but 
not capable as is said of bringing up those fatherless chil- 
dren. She has rented her house but two or three small 
rooms all hudle and bubble. I will give a specimen of the 



28 DODGE GENEALOGY 

whole. His father come to see his rich daughterinlaw. He 
was hudled into bed with myself, with a boy at the foot, 
crossways. The bed had feathers in it but lay on the cords, 
which cut my hips and back. The other in bed with them. 
The other with the hired maid on the floor with my sheep- 
skin cushion for their pillow. I was informed by a judge the 
name Dodge was heard with terror and Joy. General Henry 
owns by his father Israel 15 miles of land, the soil where the 
city is built. His uncle John owned 15000 deeded by Con- 
gress as compensation for service in the war and as agent of 
the 6 nations of Indians with a pension during life, but he is 
gone. You see I must stop. May a kind God take care of 
you my dear children. Eiches were blessing if ourselves do 
not make them a curse. Write to friends soon as you receive 
this. I thank you my dear for your punctuality in your 
other letters. I cannot endure the cold as I am feable. Do 
not mean to borrow trouble. I wish you would not. I am 
happy in that myself and all mine are under the control of 
Him who knows best. Dated at Stoutsburgh — with a friend 
I was acquainted with 32 years ago, 700 miles in the Jerseys 
where I had the small pox, my old nurs lives near by — they 
are old friends both of Kentucky 400 miles down the Ohio 
from Pittsburg. "Jordan Dodge. 

"November 20th, 1818." 

Letter written by Rev. Jordan Dodge to his daughter, Mrs. 
Achsah Tinker, and postmarked Uniontown {no state), 
Feb. 9, 1819: 

"To Mr. Jonathan Tinker, 

"Lyme, New London Co., Conn. 

"My Dear Children: — I have not arrived at Washington, 
Pa., where I directed you to send your letter, consequently 
have heard nothing from you since yours of the 13th inst. of 
June. When I shall get there the Lord only knows, as I am 
now in the Ohio, Fairfield County this 28th day of January, 
1819. I have had very good traveling the fall past and begin- 
ning of Winter but it is now bad to the extreme. There came 
a warm turn and took all of the frost out of the ground, so 
that it is difficult for my horse to carry me through the mud 
holes and clay pits, altho he is fat and strong as a Lyon. 
But thanks to a kind God I am at present among kind 
friends altho I never saw them before ; a wealthy Dutch Bap- 
tist Brother by the name of Samuel Comer who sometimes 
preaches, but I could not get him to preach while I was 
there. I have preached several times on the Sabath and 
week meetings. They are an ignorant people as to religion 
but know enough to take good care of me and horse better 
than some of my Bapt. brethern have done. Some of them 




See page 33. 



DODGE GENEALOGY 29 

have treated me as if they knew but little either of religion 
or politeness, but thank God all are not so. I have found 
many good friends among them that are ashamed of the rest. 
I think I mentioned to you concerning pawning my stockings 
to pay for my ferriage, to another Bapt. brother who lived a 
few rods from their meeting house. When I preached on 
the Sabath I did not get enough with a handful of paper 
money I had with me to pay for shewing my horse. I 
preached at another Bapt. house. A Br. invited me home 
with him. His house stood on the bank of the river, and 
his son ferried me across. I asked him what my ferryage 
would be, he says thirty seven and half cents. It was very 
difficult to find good money enough to pay. I thought they 
might give me ferriage to get rid of me, if nothing for my 
preaching. I speak of this little thing my child to let you 
know what a world I have to travel through. The banks 
have so failed and broke that common paper is worth but 
little. But thank God I have some specia left yet that I do 
not fear trouble on that account (except stole from me as has 
been). But in the midst of all my troubles, the Lord is 
wonderfully kind to your poor old decrepit father in a dis- 
tant world, among strangers and savage enemies. Not only 
giving him a wonderful share of health for an old man near 
70 but many rich blessings spiritual and temporal. I have 
been wonderfully favored with (as I trust) Divine assistance 
in preaching to thousands and tens of thousands to my own 
astonishment as well as others and been not only the happy 
means of awakening sinners (as they have confessed) but 
comforting the Dear Little flock of Christ for which may I 
ever be humble and thankful. When I shall see you my 
dear children the Lord only knows. I calculate to make my 
way to you soon as practicable. I think I shall not try to 
get further than Pittsburg this winter. Don't think it safe 
to risk my life across the mountains as I have done. I wish 
to see my dear wife and children, they fill my thoughts but 
what service could I be to them? I expect to ramble the 
world as long as I am able to preach the word of truth. I 
think I cannot die in a better cause nor live more happy, 
notwithstanding all my troubles. I wish to hear from your 
poor old mother, where and how she is, together with dear 
Nancy. I did not think it prudent to risk a journey over 
the mountains at this season of the year by Kentucky to 
Georgia to Lydia. I should be happy to answer dear 
Jonathans request, send him my likeness, but I should want 
poor Nancys wish for sheet as big as a coverlet. It is drawn 
on canvass big as a small table near as large as life. I carry 
it rolled on a cillinder, reaches near across the wagon (it cost 
me 'your thankful servant'). I shall send it by the stage 
when I think I can safely, that you might see your father's 



30 DODGE GENEALOGY 

face when he is gone. * It is an evidence of the respect the 
citizens had for the poor old man. My love to your yonng 
Dodge and all the rest. I must leave you in better hands 
than my own or your own either, that if we meet no more in 
this militant state, may be so happy as to meet in a better 
state where the chief Shepperd and all the dear sheep will 
meet together. No more climing hills and mountains, filled 
with concern and anxiety for each other. I must stop by 
testifying I remain your most affectionate and friendly 
parent "Jokdan Dodge. 

"To Jonathan & Achsah (Dodge) Tinker." 

When Elder Dodge got too old to get into his wagon he 
had constructed a very peculiar looking carriage, built close 
to the ground and suited to his infirmities. He continued 
preaching and traveling the rest of his life. One day he 
drove up to the house of a friend, and entering he repeated 
the verses beginning, "And must this body die?" He then 
asked for a place to rest, which was gladly given him, and 
when his room was visited shortly after, his spirit had flown 
to the Master he had so faithfully served. His children 
were (order of birth not known) :

refused to attend court, and her father took out a warrant

judge of the Supreme Court of Louisiana. Bev. Wm. Salter 
says: "He m. 3d Mrs. Catherine Guion, daughter of Bev. 
Ichabod Camp. ' ' The country on the west side of the Missis- 
sippi Biver, together with New Orleans, was ceded by the 
king of Prance to the king of Spain, by treaty of November 
3d, 1762. The first Spanish commandant at St. Louis 
arrived there November 29th, 1770. The transfer of govern- 
ment did not change the manners, customs or language of 



32 DODGE GENEALOGY 

the people, which continued to be French. About 1790 
Americans began to find their way oyer the river, attracted 
by offers of land from the Spanish government ; many also 
having a presentiment that the country would eventually fall 
into the hands of the United States. They were the van- 
guard of that movement which has since spread American 
institutions to the Eocky Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. 

Among the earliest of these adventurers was Israel Dodge, 
then a young man of thirty years. 

Israel Dodge, at the age of fifteen, had gone on a slaver 
to the coast of Africa; at seventeen joined the Connecticut 
troops in the army of the Revolution, served as second lieu- 
tenant and was wounded at Brandywine, served at the 
extreme outposts of Fort Jefferson and Kaskaskia on the 
Mississippi Kiver, and afterwards shared the exposures and 
perils of the "dark and bloody ground" in the settlement of 
Kentucky. He occupied grants of land at New Bourbon, 
near St. Genevieve, that were made to him by the Spanish 
government. Before 1800 he had opened a large farm, built 
mills, distilleries, and breweries, and carried on a prosperous 
trade, as was certified by the commandant at New Bourbon. 
Lieutenant-Governor Delassus, in the concession of December 
11th, 1800, called him "one of the most ancient inhabitants 
of the country" (Am. State Papers, Public Lands, Vol. VIII, 
p. 49). Upon the purchase of Louisiana by the United 
States, he was present at St. Louis to greet the stars and 
stripes as they were unf nrled in that city March 10th, 1804. 
The same year, October 1st, he was appointed sheriff of the 
District of St. Genevieve, by Wm. Henry Harrison, "Gov- 
ernor of Indiana Territory and of the District of Louisiana." 
His son Henry acted as deputy, and was appointed sheriff 
after the death of his father in 1806. 

When Israel Dodge joined in the western emigration of the 
period, he fell in with the Hunter family. In the record 
book of Col. John Todd, county lieutenant of Illinois, by ap- 
pointment of Governor Patrick Henry, which is in possession 
of the Chicago Historical Society, the name of Israel Dodge 
appears as acting under the military authority of his brother 
John Dodge, at Kaskaskia, under date of April 29, 1782. 

Subsequently, the family established their home at Spring 
Station, near Louisville ; afterwards at Bardstown. 

At Bardstown, Israel Dodge built the first stone house, 
which was used as a tavern. Here his second child was 
born, named Nancy for her mother. 

Israel Dodge was a man of restless enterprise, eager for 
the chances that fortune threw in his way. About 1790 he 
left his family and removed to upper Louisiana, attracted by 
the liberal policy of Spain in offering lands to settlers. He 
located at New Bourbon, just below St. Genevieve. 



DODGE GENEALOGY 33 

Nancy Ann Hunter was the youngest child of Joseph 
Hunter and Mollie Homes, his wife who came from Ireland 
and settled near Carlisle, Pa. Nancy was born in Carlisle 
about 1769. The family removed to the land where the 
town of Washington, Pa., now stands. They subsequently 
removed to the neighborhood of Louisville, Ky., some of 
them going to Kaskaskia. On one occasion when the 
Indians had beleaguered the settlement, a favorite cow and 
calf strayed outside the gate. Nancy Ann Hunter ran out 
into the open space, and taking up the calf brought it 
within the enclosure, the cow following, while the arrows of 
the savages whistled by and cut her clothing, herself 
unharmed. After her marriage to Israel Dodge they 
removed to Kaskaskia, and in 1782, while on the way to 
visit her parents in Kentucky, her son Henry was born at 
Post Vincennes, Ind., under the roof of Moses and Ann 
Henry. This son was the first American child born in what 
now constitutes the state of Indiana. The earlier white 
inhabitants were Canadian French. Moses Henry was a 
gunsmith for the Indians. A few days after the birth of the 
child an Indian chief came in and attempted to dash out its 
brains. The mother plead for the life of her first-born, and 
Moses Henry prevailed upon the chief to allow the child to 
live, as they would soon go on their journey. In gratitude 
to her benefactor, Mrs. Dodge gave his full name to the 
child, which he retained until he was grown, when he 
adopted the single name Henry. While still a young child, 
her son Henry was taken captive by the Indians but returned 
unharmed. Five of his uncles fell under the Indian hatchet, 
and the mother, sister, and brother of Mrs. Dodge were 
killed and scalped by the Indians. 

Her second husband was Asael Linn, son of the brave 
William Linn, who performed an adventurous trip to New 
Orleans at the opening of the Revolutionary War and brought 
up a supply of gunpowder for the defence of the frontier ; 
afterwards served with Col. Clark at the capture of Kaskas- 
kia, in 1778, and lost his life in a conflict with Indians, near 
Louisville, in 1781. When a boy of twelve, Asael was carried 
off a captive with three other lads by Shawnee Indians, and 
escaped by killing or maiming two old Indians who had been 
left as their guard while the young Indians of the band were 
gone away on a hunt. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Asael 
Linn that survived to maturity were Mary Ann Linn, b. 
Nov. 24, 1793, m. Jos. McArthur, and Dr. Lewis Fields 
Linn, b. Nov. 5, 1795, near Louisville, Ky., d. Oct. 3, 1843, 
St. Genevieve, Mo. They were early deprived of both their 
parents (the father dying when Dr. Lewis F. Linn was eleven 
years old), and in the vicissitudes of after years clung to 
their half-brother, Henry Dodge, as their counsellor and 



34 DODGE GENEALOGY 

guide, having joined him at St. Genevieve. Their mother 
proves to have heen the only woman in the land to whose 
name attaches the distinction of having two of her sons 
hecome senators of the United States : Dr. Lewis P. Linn 
having been senator from Missouri, 1833-1843; Henry 
Dodge, senator from Wisconsin, 1848-1857. Her grandson, 
Augustus C. Dodge, was a senator from Iowa, 1848-1855. 
At one period, 1841-1843, all three of these descendants of 
Nancy Ann Hunter sat together in the Capitol. 

Senator Lewis F. Linn m. July 1, 1818, Elizabeth Eelfe, 
dau. of John Eelfe of Virginia.

Mrs. Fritts without fire or bedding. She supposed her hus- 
band was killed and went to find his body. After some 
time she found him, and returning to the house found their 
four children chilled from cold, and they died from the 
exposure. Thus the family is extinct in this line.

nail works at Ferrisburg, Vt. He made the nails with 
which the old state house in Albany, ]NT. Y. , was shingled. 
After the invention of machinery which superseded hand- work 
in nail-making, he manufactured hames for horse collars and 
made many inventions useful in the prosecution of that 
business. From want of a house in Ferrisburg, he moved 
into a house just over the line, in Monkton, Vt., and there 
he invented the first American sewing machine in 1818 (see

Johnson's Encyclopedia). The following account is taken 
from Battey's Sewing Machine Manual: 

"The First Sewing Machine 

"The honor of inventing the first sewing machine has been 
claimed by different parties, and for different periods; but 
justice — alike to individual merit, and impartial history, 
assigns that honor to the Rev. John Adams Dodge, of 
Monkton, Vt., who, as early as the year 1818, invented and 
constructed an instrument which made the 'back-stitch' and 
sewed a perfect seam. ~No effort was made, however, to 
introduce it to the public. The journeymen tailors, alarmed 
and offended, denounced the sewing machine as an inva- 
sion of their rights; the public had not then learned to 
have much confidence in labor-saving machinery of any kind ; 
the rude state of the mechanic arts at that period was 
against him ; and Mr. Dodge, having the pastoral charge of 
two, and sometimes three churches, found that he must 
abandon either his invention or the care of his flock. In 
view of all these difficulties he decided to give up the 
machine; and thus terminated the first effort of inventive 
genius to relieve the overburdened wife and mother from 
the 'drudgery of the needle.' Yet this effort of Mr. Dodge 
is not to be regarded, in its relation to the public welfare, as 
labor lost; for such was the impression it made upon the 
public mind that, from that day forward, inventive genius 
never lost sight of the sewing machine problem until it had 
been successfully solved. 

"During the next thirty years, the names of Thimonier, 
Hunt, Greenough, Bean, Corlies, and Howe, were succes- 
sively added to the list of 'early sewing machine inventors.' 
Each succeeded in producing an instrument that would make 
a seam ; though neither of those instruments, as at first pre- 
sented to the public, was much of an aid to the seamstress; 
and it is doubtful if either of them equaled, in originality of 
invention, or in the perfection of the seam it made, the 
machine of Mr. Dodge. 

"But the honor of introducing the sewing machine is 
generally conceded to the late Mr. Howe, whose machine was 
patented in 1846. His invention, though doubtless original 
with him, was in some of its features merely a reproduction 
of mechanical devices previously invented by others. The 
'combination of an upper with an under thread,' and the use 
of the 'eye-pointed needle' and the 'shuttle,' were both 
embraced in the machine of Walter Hunt, of New York, 
which was invented as early as 1833; while his 'feed-device' 
was in principle the same as that of Mr. Dodge. The orig- 
inal machine of Mr. Howe would sew a straight seam, in 
short lengths or 'reaches' ; but it would not sew a continuous 
or a curved one. Thus the sewing machine was still very 



40 DODGE GENEALOGY 

far from perfect; and so it remained, with little improve- 
ment, till other inventors came to his aid." 

Although the Dodge invention has never played any part 
in the hattles of the patents, a great deal of interest has been 
directed to it, and Mr. Dodge made a -written statement of 
the matter when he was eighty years old. The following 
answers were also made by Mr. Dodge to questions put him 
by a friend and neighbor. The questions were written by 
one familiar with sewing machines, and read to Mr. Dodge. 
The answers were recorded at the time by one having no 
special knowledge of their import : 

Question. "What kind of a stitch did it make?" Answer. 
"A complete back-stitch." 

Q. "Did the needle work up and down, or horizontally?" 
A. "Horizontally." 

Q. "Did the machine use two threads or only one." 
A. "Only one." 

Q. "Did the cloth lie flat on a table, or was it held in a 
clamp hanging edgewise?" A. "Edgewise in a clamp, the 
same as a shoemaker holds his leather." 

Q. "Was the thread cut off and used in 'needlefuls,' as 
in hand sewing, or was it taken from the spool as the sew- 
ing went forward?" A. "In 'needlefuls.' There were no 
spools of thread in those days." 

[Note. — I did not get tbe idea how the thread was held 
to draw it tight ; he said there was something. ] 

Q. "What kind of thread was used?" A. "Such thread 
as women used in those days — home-made linen." 

Q. "Was the cloth fed along as the stitches were made, by 
the machine itself, or was it moved by hand?" A. "By the 
machine itself; just the same as a log is moved in a mill." 

Q. "Was the machine worked by hand by a crank, or by 
foot by a treadle?" A. "By a crank. Had it been brought 
to perfection, it would have gone by foot." 

Q. "What kind of goods were sewed?" A. "Common 
fulled cloth. " 

Q. "Did it sew without missing stitches?" A. "Yes, if 
the thread did not break." 

Q. "Did it sew a strong seam?" A. "Yes." 

Q. "What became of the working parts?" A. "Do not 
remember. ' ' 

Q. "What circumstances first suggested the idea of a 
machine to sew with to thy mind?" A. "Seeing others sew 
by hand." i 

Q. "Was it a saw-mill feed?" A. "Yes." 

Q. "How did the stitch compare with a hand-made back- 
stitch?" A. "Pull as good." 

Q. "How long a seam would it sew without moving back 
the feed?" A. "One-half yard." 



DODGE GENEALOGY 



41 



Q. "How long without renewing the thread?" A. "One- 
half yard." 

Q. "Was any effort made to improve the apparatus, so as 
to sew continuous or curved seams?" A. "No." 

Q. "Was more than one machine made?" A. "No." 

Q. "Was any effort made to get a patent, and if not, 
why?" A. "None, for want of means and time to build 
model." 

Q. "Had thou, at the time of thy invention, ever heard of 
any one ever having tried to make one. " A. "No." 

This machine sewed numerous pieces of cloth together 
which were carried away by visitors. Mr. Dodge carried a 
sample to some journeyman tailors at Vergennes, Vt., but 
they seemed to be offended that an attempt should be made 
to throw them out of business. Mr. James Higby stated in 
1893, when nearly ninety years old, that he had seen the 
machine in operation and that the last he knew of it was in 
the attic of Stephen F. Stevens' place. 

The following article was published Feb. 10, 1893, by the 
Sewing Machine Times, of New York : 

"The First American Sewing Machine 

"We give here a sketch of the first American sewing 
machine, from the inventor's description of it. We do not 
attempt to show more 
than is essential to con- 
vey the idea of Mr. 
Dodge's invention, as 
he remembered it, fifty 
years after it was aban- 
doned. He did not go 
into the details of what 
to us would be interest- 
ing features, especially 
the control of the 
thread. Concerning the 
features that he omitted 
to mention, we can only 
conclude that his de- 
vices were in line with 
the mechanism of that 
day and what was done 
by other mechanics in 
producing analogous results. Eeferring to Mr. Dodge's let- 
ter, printed in our issue of October 25th, and supplemented 
in that of November 25, 1892, the reader will see in the 
above sketch the two planks set on end, facing each other, 
held by cross-pieces about four feet long. Near the top is 




42 DODGE GENEALOGY 

another piece, reaching from end to end, on which the cloth- 
holding carriage runs. 

"The cog-wheel that moves the carriage is also seen, hut 
the cranks and pitmans to move it are not shown. Xo doubt 
the connection was with the rotary shaft below in the manner 
common to the old water-power saw-mills. There must, 
however, have been two connections, and of different lever- 
ages, to give the full forward and half-backward movement 
required for a back-stitch. It may interest our readers to 
know that a part of the 'saw-mill' feed was used in the 
original Weed machine. A ratchet-wheel, driven by the 
usual pawl, gave motion to a wheel feed ; and these machines 
were in the market as late as 1868-9, competing with the 
other machines of that age. 

"We show one of the two needle arms, which he describes 
as about three feet long, working on steel-pointed bearings in 
iron boxes. The double-pointed needle is seen in the clamps 
at the top of this arm. The other arm was, of course, a 
duplicate of the one shown. 

"Mr. Dodge states that points, attached to the cross-piece 
on which the carriage ran, opened and shut the needle-hold- 
ing clamps. As he gave no description of their construction, 
or the manner of working them, we do not attempt to show 
them ; but it is not unlikely that they were over the shaft of 
the ratchet-wheel, and derived motion from it. 

"In his written statement, Mr. Dodge says nothing about 
the control of the thread, and in answer to a question on 
that point he said there was something to draw it tight, but 
unfortunately the idea was not caught by the questioner. 
The devices used by others for tightening 'through-and- 
through' stitches have varied. Corliss had a very elaborate 
and complicated arrangement; Greenough used a weight 
hung on the end of the arms, which simply pulled them, 
with needle and thread, out as far as the constantly-decreas- 
ing length of thread permitted. This involved the fastening 
of the thread to the eye of the needle. Speaking of the 
improvements that suggested themselves to his mind, Mr. 
Dodge said it was seen that the tension of the thread might 
be regulated by springs ; and from this we can infer that his 
thread ran through the eye and was pulled by some simple 
gripping device — a plan much more practical and intelligent 
than was adopted by others who used double-pointed needles. 

"He says he thought of substituting cams for the cranks 
that drove the arms, and of applying a foot motion, but felt 
that the weight of the long arms was too great for a rapid 
motion. 

"A point that distinguishes this machine from all others 
that used its equivalent in the shape of clamps and carriages 
for holding the work is the clamping on both sides of the 



J ^ 



DODGE GENEALOGY 43 

seam. This would seem to call for a generous width of seam. 
"When we consider the clumsy needle that must have been 
used and the roughness of the common skein flax that consti- 
tuted the sewing thread of that day, we can readily imagine 
that such support was necessary. 

"In this simple and crude construction sewing mechanists 
will observe all the necessary elements of a seam-stitch- 
ing machine." 

The following newspaper clipping gives an account of Mr. 
Dodge's life as a minister. It was contributed by Mr. S. D. 
Moxley : 

"T7ie Late Rev. John Adams Dodge. — In accordance with 
my promise, I furnish yourself and readers with a synopsis 
of the life and labors of the late Eev. John A. Dodge. He 
was the son of a Baptist minister, and was born in Stur- 
bridge, Mass., Nov. 7, 1788. In 1816 he went to Ferrisburg, 
Vt., to enter into business. Finding no religious service in 
the town excepting a Quaker meeting, and the majority of 
the inhabitants making of the Sabbath a gala day, he 
declared (though at this time not a Christian) that he could 
not live in a community neglecting the command, 'Kemem- 
ber the Sabbath day to keep it holy. ' This led to the estab- 
lishing of a meeting in a schoolhouse, at which he and others 
read sermons. Many were influenced to seriously consider 
the lives they were leading, and soon a powerful revival 
resulted; and among the converts was Mr. Dodge. From 
the day of his conversion he was an earnest Christian, and 
began to preach immediately. After about three years spent 
in such preparation for making the ministry his life-work as 
the times and region afforded, he was ordained and entered 
upon the full duties of his profession. He labored among 
the churches in Vermont about twenty years, serving the 
interests of the Baptist churches in Ferrisburg, Monkton, 
Charlotte, Hinesburg, Bristol, Panton, Addison, and New 
Haven. It may seem, by the number mentioned, that his 
pastorates must have been short, but at that time some of 
these churches were small and weak, and his services were 
divided among two or three of them at the same time. 

"In 1838 he accepted a call from the Baptist churoh in 
Jay, ~S. Y. , and with them he labored four years. This was 
his last regular pastorate, though he preached more or less 
until the last two years of his life. 

"Among the places that enjoyed his labors after he ceased 
to be a resident pastor, were St. Armand, Union Falls, 
Ausable Forks, and Port Kent on this side of the lake, 
and Charlotte, in Vermont. 

' ' Over the last-named church he acted as a pastor until 
failing health compelled his return home. With this church, 



44 DODGE GENEALOGY 

so dear to both his earlier and later ministry, he retained his 
membership through the remainder of his life. 

"For more than twenty years he has been an esteemed citi- 
zen of this community, and within the Baptist and other 
places of worship his voice has often been heard, and his 
earnest words will long be remembered. 

"It may be worthy of note that he preached the first and 
last Protestant sermon in the old Baptist church on the hill 
in this place. 

"Every heart has its little chapel within which memorial 
tablets have been erected, to keep fresh the memory of some 
special event or friend. On many of these tablets, in many 
hearts, are touching memorials inscribed to the memory of 
Father Dodge, of times when he rendered them acceptable 
and comforting service in the capacity of citizen, friend or 
clergyman. 

"The record of his ministry is crowded with self-sacrificing 
devotion to his calling ; and as its reward he could look over 
his finished course, at last, and count hundreds led to the 
Saviour by his efforts, and hundreds who beneath his hands 
received the divine ordinance of baptism. 

"To such events he looked back in the days of his age and 
confinement. They were sunny places, and he loved to live 
them over. But they furnish him greater joy as in the city 
of God he meets so many of those whose steps he directed 
thither, so many whom he comforted by his words as they 
passed away from this to a higher and holier life. 

"The esteem in which Father Dodge was held was shown 
by the large number who gathered at his funeral, and fol- 
lowed him to the grave, where his earthly part was 
committed to its kindred el r ment to await the general resur- 
rection, when the corruptee bodies of those who sleep in 
Jesus shall be made like unto His own glorious body, accord- 
ing to the working of His mighty power whereby He is able to 
subdue all things unto Himself." 

His first eight children were by his first wife.

March 30, 1865, dau. of James McDonald. She came to 
Upper Louisiana with her parents in 1796, and m. at the 
early age of fifteen, while her husband was nineteen. 

Henry Dodge was a tall man, over six feet high, straight 
as an Indian and possessed great strength. He died a mem- 
ber of the Episcopal Church. His wife was a zealous Baptist, 



DODGE GENEALOGY 47 

and joined the church in early life. The slaves which he 
inherited from his father he took to Wisconsin, and there 
gave them their freedom. He was one of the original trus- 
tees of St. Genevieve (Mo.) Academy, which was incor- 
porated by act of the governor and judges of the Territory 
of Louisiana June 21, 1808. A work of this kind affords 
brief space for biography, and cannot do justice to this brave 
soldier and statesman whose public service continued without 
interruption for over fifty years. Eev. William Salter of 
Burlington, Iowa, has written his life, and the Iowa His- 
torical Record, Iowa City, Iowa, has published several articles 
on his services and family, also written by Mr. Salter. 
Those interested in the Dodge history would do well to 
address Mr. Salter, who will cheerfully supply the works 
named. Most of the matter in this volume concerning the 
life and family of Henry Dodge (excepting the genealogical 
data) is gleaned from Mr. Salter's works. Henry Dodge's 
public life began as deputy sheriff of St. Genevieve, Mo. 
district in 1805. In 1820 he was elected by the people a 
member of the convention that framed the constitution of 
Missouri. In 1831 he was elected member of the legislature 
of Michigan Territory. In his capacity as Major-General of 
the Missouri troops he received the Marquis de Lafayette 
upon his visit to St. Louis April 29, 1825. He removed to 
Wisconsin in 1827, and was there a leader in the Winnebago 
and Black Hawk wars. He engaged extensively in lead 
mining near Dodgeville, Wis. He was regarded as the hero of 
the Black Hawk War, and his services in the campaign against 
the Indians are recorded in a highly interesting account in 
the works of Mr. Salter already mentioned. Henry Dodge 
was called to Washington in 1833, and President Andrew 
Jackson had arranged to appoint him marshal of South 
Carolina had nullification matters grown worse in that state. 

He commanded as Colonel of U. S. Dragoons, 1834, the 
first U. S. military expedition to the Indian country west of 
Arkansas and Missouri. A portion of the country traversed 
is now Oklahoma. Lieut. Jefferson Davis was one of his 
officers. George Catlin, the celebrated portrait painter, 
joined the expedition, and his portraits of chiefs, views of 
Indian villages, adventures in hunting, etc., are incorporated 
in the history of the George Catlin Indian Gallery at Wash- 
ington. Mr. Catlin painted a portrait of Col. Dodge just as 
they returned from a buffalo hunt. This portrait is repro- 
duced in the Iowa Historical Becord, Oct., 1889. The 
Secretary of War, in his report of 1834, says that Col. Dodge 
led the expedition in the most satisfactory manner, and that 
his efforts to introduce amicable relations with the distant 
tribes of Indians were successful without a single act of 
hostility. 

Col. Dodge commanded the first U. S. military expedition 



48 DODGE GENEALOGY 

to the Eocky Mountains via the Platte, returning via the 
Arkansas in 1835. He marched sixteen hundred miles in 
this expedition in a continuous wilderness, and conferred 
■with many nations of Indians. This was the eleventh 
mounted expedition which Col. Dodge had commanded. 
While Colonel of U. S. Dragoons, in command of Fort 
Leavenworth, his career as a soldier was closed by his 
appointment, April 30, 1836, as Governor of Wisconsin, 
comprising the territory now included in the states of Wis- 
consin, Iowa, Minnesota and that portion of the Dakotas 
east of the Missouri River. He was also made Superinten- 
dent of Indian Affairs for the Northwest, in addition to his 
duties as Governor. A sword and the thanks of the nation 
were voted him by Congress for his unsurpassed ability as 
an Indian fighter. 

Among his papers, which were preserved by his son, 
Augustus C. Dodge, is a package bearing the simple inscrip- 
tion in his handwriting, "Commissions in the Service of My 
Country." There was also included in this package the 
commission of his father, Israel Dodge, as sheriff of the 
District of St. Genevieve, signed by William Henry Harri- 
son, governor and commander-in-chief of the Indiana Terri- 
tory and of the District of Louisiana, John Gibson, secretary, 
October 1, 1804. 

The commissions of Henry Dodge cover a long period of 
public service. They embrace the signatures of six Presi- 
dents of the United States, and of many other distinguished 
men. It is doubtful if there exists another collection of 
equal interest and value in the documentary history of the 
West, unless it may be in connection with the life of William 
Henry Harrison, or tbe life of Lewis Cass, who were illus- 
trious pioneers. They were not born, like the subject of this 
memoir, in the West; but they filled with honor some of its 
highest stations. 

The following is a list of commissions in the package 
referred to : 

1. Lieutenant of Militia in the District of St. Genevieve ; 
signed by James Wilkinson, governor and commander-in- 
chief of the Territory of Louisiana; Joseph Browne, secre- 
tary, May 10th, 1806. 

2. Adjutant of the Militia in the District of St. Genevieve; 
signed by James Wilkinson, governor, etc. , July 17th, 1806. 
This commission also bears the oath of office sworn to by H. 
Hodge before Jno. Smith, T., March 2d, 1807. 

3. First Lieutenant of St. Genevieve Troop of Cavalry; 
signed by Frederick Bates, secretary of the Territory of 
Louisiana, and exercising as well the government thereof as 
the office of commander-in-chief of the militia of said terri- 
tory; St. Louis, Aug. 14th, 1807.

DODGE GENEALOGY 51 

from Feb. 3,1846; signed by James K. Polk, President; 
James Buchanan, secretary of state, Feb. 3, 1846. 

Governor Dodge was removed from office by President 
Tyler in 1841, and on July 19 of that year he was nominated 
for Congress and duly elected. He took his seat Dec. 7, and 
for four years sat by the side of his son Augustus, who had 
the previous year been elected from Iowa. On May 13, 
1845, Henry Dodge was restored to the office of governor by 
President Polk. In 1848 Wisconsin was admitted into the 
Union, and on June 8, 1848, Henry Dodge was elected to 
the United States Senate. His son Augustus joined him 
the next December as senator from Iowa. At the end of his 
second term in the Senate, Henry Dodge was tendered the 
office of governor of Washington Territory, but declined on 
account of his advanced age, being in his seventy-fifth year. 
He was a warm friend of Andrew Jackson and Martin Van 
Bur en, and refused the nomination for President in 1844 in 
the Democratic convention, as he was loyal to Van Buren. 
Had he accepted he would have been President instead of 
James K. Polk. Four years later his name was presented 
to the convention which nominated Lewis Cass, who was 
defeated by Zachary Taylor, an old companion-in-arms of 
Henry Dodge at the battle of Bad Axe in the Black Hawk 
War. In June, 1848, Henry Dodge was nominated for Vice- 
President by a convention at Utica, 1ST. Y., but declined. 
The following August a Free Soil convention at Buffalo, N. 
Y., nominated him for President. He refused the nomina- 
tion, and Mr. Van Buren was named as President and Henry 
Dodge as Vice-President, and when he declined again the 
name of Charles Francis Adams was substituted. In 1851 
he was proposed for President by Col. Benton and other 
liberal members of the Democratic party, and received votes 
in the early ballots of the convention the next year. In the 
United States Senate his personal dignity, martial bearing 
and unstained record ranked him with Webster, Clay and 
Calhoun. He was pall bearer at Clay's funeral. After 
retiring from public life he returned to bis home at Dodge- 
ville, Wis., and died at the residence of his son in Burling- 
ton, Iowa. In 1870 the legislature of Wisconsin appropriated 
$2,000 for Knowles' marble bust of Gov. Dodge which stands 
in the capitol. No other citizen of Wisconsin has been thus 
honored at public expense. Children:

55. Daniel 7 Dodge (John A.,* Rev. Jordan, 5 John, 4 John 3 

Israel* Tristram 1 ), m. Nov. 24, 1852, Eunice Keed. No 
issue. He was the inventor of machinery for the manufac- 
ture of horseshoe nails. Very few are aware of the great 
difficulties experienced by the first inventor of this wonderful 



DODGE GENEALOGY 57 

machinery, and the great persistence, patience and energy 
exhibited by him in times of trial, when all condemned his 
scheme as impracticable and withdrew financial support. 
A sketch of the history of this invention and of the inventor 
may not be devoid of interest. Daniel Dodge came of a 
family possessed of great inventive powers. His great grand- 
father, John Dodge, was the inventor of cut nails with heads 
and certain tools for their manufacture. He was a black- 
smith and hoe maker, and the invention came about in this 
way : After plating out the blade of the hoe as near to the 
desired form as convenient, they used to complete it by 
shearing from the edges any surplus of metal there might 
be. It occurred to the young man that some of these clip- 
pings, which were of a tapering form, might serve for nails if 
properly headed. He collected a few of them and headed 
them by griping them in a vise and upsetting the large end 
with a hammer. Finding they answered the purpose, he cut 
up other pieces of similar scrap and headed them in the same 
way. He then made a tool for the purpose of holding the 
shank more perfectly while being headed. Finding a ready 
demand for nails so made, he collected a quantity of old 
hoops and worked them up. The demand increasing, the 
business was increased and new facilities added for manufac- 
turing the article, and new hoop iron purchased. The trade 
so commenced was followed, to some extent, by John Dodge's 
son and grandson. At a later date they of course used plates 
rolled expressly for the purpose, but they headed them by 
hand until the invention of Eeed's improvement. 

Previous to the age of 25, Daniel Dodge's educational 
advantages were mainly a few months' attendance at a 
county district school each year during his boyhood and two 
or three terms at an academy. From the age of 10 to 18 
years his time was mostly divided between the labors of the 
farm and the business of ironing hames for horse collars. 
He then removed to New York State with his parents, and 
continued his labors as before, teaching school and studying 
at home. At the age of 25 he entered Madison University, 
at Hamilton, N. Y. , but after two and a half years of study 
there was compelled by failing health to leave the institution. 
In the fall of 1848 he began what proved to be the principal 
labor of his life, the invention and construction of machinery 
for the manufacture of horseshoe nails. Unable to apply 
himself to books, and having a taste for mechanical pursuits, 
he determined to select some subject affording exercise of 
the inventive faculties, and apply himself to the production 
of some mechanical improvement. In the search for such a 
subject his attention was soon attracted to the manufacture 
of horseshoe nails, as offering an open and inviting field. 
Such nails were at that time all made by hand, the process 



58 DODGE GENEALOGY 

of making them was slow and laborious, and there was evi- 
dently room for improvement. He commenced on a very 
small scale. Having no money to invest in the enterprise, 
he proceeded to construct with his own hands a small model 
made wholly of iron and steel which could be operated by 
hand. This model would produce from lead and copper 
miniature nails of about one sixty-fourth the weight of an 
ordinary horseshoe nail, and with such facility and so per- 
fect in form that it won the confidence of friends and enabled 
him to command the means to experiment on a larger scale. 
The plan of this first model was the result of considerable 
study, and was adopted, after a careful comparison of several 
conceivable plans, as the most feasible, and promising the 
most valuable results. In the spring of 1849 he began 
building a machine of full working proportions. Several 
months were consumed in its construction, and much diffi- 
culty was encountered in the want of facilities for doing 
work with the perfect accuracy requisite. The machine 
when completed produced nails with the expected rapidity 
(about 100 per minute) and of satisfactory form and finish, 
but they were found to possess one fatal defect. The rapid 
absorption of heat by the machinery from the metal under 
operation had so cooled the points of the nails before com- 
pletion that the quality of the metal near the points was 
found to be impaired by the continued action of the hammers 
upon it. With the machine, as constructed, this could only 
be remedied by running it with greater rapidity, but 
increased speed was found to increase the strain on certain 
parts beyond their capacity for endurance. Several months 
were spent in altering, improving and experimenting with 
this machine, not so much in hopes of making it a success 
as with a view to learning all that could be learned from it 
before attempting to construct another, and, what was 
equally important, convincing men who had means to invest 
that it would pay to build another. Before this last point 
was reached, however, those who had furnished the means 
thus far became greatly discouraged and disinclined to prose- 
cute further experiments. At this juncture a stranger pass- 
ing through the town purchased a fractional interest in the 
machine and enabled Mr. Dodge to proceed far enough with 
the experiments to interest those with ampler means, when 
he re-purchased the fractional interest. A new machine was 
built, and then another and another; each an improvement 
on the other, but none proving profitable for permanent use. 
After a few months' use the repairs would become more and 
more frequent until it became necessary to abandon them. 
This result was due to the gradual crystallization resulting 
from the violence of the percussion of a hammer stroke 
sufficiently instantaneous to prevent undue absorption of 



DODGE GENEALOGY 59 

heat from the point of the nail. After pursuing these exper- 
iments for nearly seven years, at a cost of many thousands 
of dollars, mating many shifts to secure the necessary 
means, he determined to abandon entirely his original plan 
and adopt one radically different and entirely new. On this 
plan he built a machine early in 1856. This proved a com- 
parative success. It overcame the great difficulty encountered 
in the former plans, but its capacity for production was com- 
paratively small, and it required many subsequent additions, 
alterations and improvements to render it a complete success. 
It was not until 1862, and after a long series of expensive 
experiments, that he felt warranted in building a large num- 
ber of these machines. Prom that time the machines were 
rapidly multiplied until more than 100 were in operation in 
his own country, and large numbers in Canada, England and 
various European states. His American patents bear dates 
June 22, 1852; June 3, 1856; Aug. 23, 1859; Aug. 30, 
1859; Jan. 5, 1864, and Aug. 4, 1874. Unlike many 
inventors, Mr. Dodge reaped the benefits of his invention. 

By means of this useful invention Mr. Dodge acquired 
wealth. But he used it so generously that he was a blessing 
to all around him. He pitied the poor, and befriended par- 
ticularly the industrious poor. He had. himself been one of 
that class, and knew how they suffered. He gave also 
generously and constantly to large philanthropic and relig- 
ious objects. Foreign missions, home missions, the Bible 
cause, religious publications, all received his moneyed gifts. 
One of his last gifts was that of his elegant mansion and 
grounds in Keeseville, N. Y., which cost him over $20,000. 
This he gave to the American Baptist Publication Society, 
in whose large, beneficent and world-wide missionary opera- 
tions he was a profound believer. Though this elegant home 
sold for far less than it originally cost, it was nevertheless an 
expression of his love for Christ, and the Publication 
Society's great and good work. 

Intellectually, Mr. Dodge was a great thinker and an 
uncommon man. He was the author of a treatise on Law 
and Liberty, which handles some of the more intricate prob- 
lems of psychology, metaphysics and theology in a masterly 
fashion. Above all else, he was a simple, child-like lover 
and server of Jesus Christ. Though hindered from becom- 
ing a settled pastor and preacher, he wrought in the spirit of 
one "called of God" throughout the whole of his long life. 
He was the main pillar and support of the little Baptist 
church of which he was for so many years a member and an 
office-bearer in Keeseville, and he was also the same wise 
counselor and worker in the Tabernacle Church of Albany, 
in whose fellowship he passed the last few years of his useful 
and beautiful Christian life. His home was charming, his 



60 DODGE GENEALOGY 

hospitality was genial and abundant, his conversation 
abounded in wisdom and wit, and his reading and expositions 
of the Bible at the family altar, in the old-fashioned style, 
were a blessing to all who were permitted to be present.

vain for his ransom. Besides the tender of money, he might 
have successfully pleaded (for he could speak ten different 
dialects), before any tribunal other than the infuriated 
Apache, the preservation of the lives of two of their race, 
an Indian woman and her child, snatched by his own hands 
from the jaws of death in the heat of battle at Bad Axe, 
exposed as he was to the fire of friends and foes when he 
accomplished the deed. 

"Or, if hereditary acts of mercy and favor of older date 
and greater magnitude could have availed aught to stay the 
slow consuming fire of the stake and its agonies, my brother 
might have pointed the demoniacal Apaches to the lives of 
five hundred men, women and children of the Miami tribe, 
not only spared by his father after they had become his 
prisoners, but protected from almost instant death by Colonel 
Dodge, who threw himself between the Miamis and the 
muzzles of a hundred and ten cocked rifles in the hands 
of Capt. Marshall Cooper's company, aimed at the Indians 
by brave but enraged Missourians, who had given way to the 
ignoble passion of revenge — the Indians having a short time 
before murdered a number of their kindred and. friends." 

The following letter was written by Mr. William P. Pox, 
who m. Captain Dodge's daughter Mary:

"6425 Monroe Ave., Chicago, Aug. 23, 1901. 
"T. R. Woodward, Esq., Chicago. 

"Dear Sir: — I have looked over the report we have of the 
facts concerning the death of Capt. H. L. Dodge of the 
Volunteer service in New Mexico, while acting as Indian 
Agent for the government in that territory. It appears from 
the information received shortly after his death, that he was 
killed in that territory on Nov. 15, 1856, by a band of 
Apache Indians, who were hostile to the Navajos. I take it 
that a summary of the facts is all you desire. The circum- 
stances of his death as reported are substantially these : Henry 
Lafayette Dodge, who was appointed Indian Agent by the 
government in 185 — , was stationed in New Mexico. It 
appears that there was located at Fort Defiance, New Mexico, 
a military post, the officers of which were Major Kendrick 
of Co. 'B,' 2d Artillery, commanding, and among other 
subordinate officers Henry L. Dodge, Captain. On or about 
the 10th of November, 1856, a command under Major Ken- 
drick left the fort for the purpose of laying out a road from 
Fort Defiance to Salt Lake. While en route, on the morning 
of Nov. 15th, Capt. H. L. Dodge, who accompanied them, 
left the command, and in advance sought to do some hunt- 
ing. Not returning at the proper time, scouts were sent out 
to find him, thinking possibly he might have become lost. 
Not finding him, they returned to camp late at night, and 
as a heavy fall of snow occurred that night, the immediate 
search for him was given up. In the following spring, when 
the snow had melted, Major Kendrick with twenty men 
started out from the post to renew the search for his body, 
or to get tidings of him. They searched faithfully, and 
found nothing but his skull, which had been placed between 
two projecting rocks, about thirty miles south of the Zuma 
and toward the Giles Eiver. No traces of his body were 
found. His skull was brought to Fort Defiance, and 
interred with military honors. 

"Captain Dodge was looked upon as the 'Great Father' 
of the Navajo tribe, who were at war with the Apaches, 
and hence their hostility to him, which accounts for their 
murdering him as they did. These are the substantial points 
of the tragedy as related by Charles W. Wentz of Co. 'G,' 
1st Cav., N. Mex. Vols. The writer adds, 'Captain Dodge 
was esteemed by the entire people of New Mexico, and his 
untimely end deeply deplored.' "Yours truly, 

"W. F. Fox."

58. Augustus Caesar 7 Dodge (Henry,* Israel, 6 John,* John, 3 
Israel,* Tristram 1 ) , m. St. Genevieve, Mo., March 19, 1837, 
Clara Ann Hertich, b. June 20, 1819, d. April 18, 1891, dau. 
of Prof. Joseph and Mereelite (de Villars) Hertich, m. 1815. 

Augustus Caesar Dodge was born at St. Genevieve, then 
in the Territory of Louisiana. This town, sixty miles below 
St. Louis, is the oldest settlement on the west side of the 
Mississippi River. It was commenced in 1735 by a few 
French people who moved from Kaskaskia. The old village, 
"Le Vieux Village," was inundated in the great flood of 
1785, when it was abandoned for the present site of the 
town. French manners and customs and a patois of the 
language prevail there to this day. 

He removed with his father's family to Galena, now in the 
State of Illinois, arriving there July 4, 1827. Although 
only fifteen years of age, he marched with W. S. Hamilton's 
company in the campaign against the Indians. He also 
served in his father's command during the Black Hawk War, 
and was elected lieutenant. In 1838 he was appointed by 
President Van Buren Register of the United States Land 
Office at Burlington, and removed to that city, which was 
his home the rest of his life. On the 14th of January, 1839, 
Mr. Dodge was appointed by Governor Lucas Brigadier-Gen- 
eral of the Second Brigade of the first division of the militia 
of Iowa Territory. 

On the 3d of February, 1840, Mr. Dodge was elected 
alderman by the people of Burlington; his commission was 
signed by Governor Lucas and James Clarke, Secretary of 
the Territory. 

On Oct. 5, 1840, he was elected delegate to Congress. 



DODGE GENEALOGY 63 

On the 2d day of September, 1841, Mr. Dodge took his 
seat in the Twenty-seventh Congress, then convened in extra 
session. On the 7th day of December, he welcomed his 
father to a seat by his side, as delegate from the Territory of 
Wisconsin — the first and only instance of a father and son 
sitting together in the House of Eepresentatives since the 
foundation of the government. In 1843 he was elected to the 
Twenty-eighth Congress, and in 1845 he was elected to the 
Twenty-ninth Congress. He served as delegate until the ad- 
mission of the State of Iowa into the Union, December 28,1846. 

On the 15th of December, 1846, Mr. Dodge presented to 
the House of Eepresentatives the Constitution of the State 
of Iowa, and on the 28th of the same month the State was 
admitted into the Union. 

He was Presidential Elector in 1848. The First General 
Assembly of the State was not able to agree upon the elec- 
tion of the United States Senators. The Second General 
Assembly, on the 2d day of December, 1848, chose Mr. 
Dodge and George W. Jones. Upon taking their seats in 
the Senate Chamber on the 26th day of December, they drew 
lots for their respective terms of office. Mr. Dodge drew 
for the short term (ending March 4, 1849), whereupon the 
same General Assembly, on the 10th day of January, 1849, 
chose Mr. Dodge for the following term of six years (ending 
March 4, 1855). 

As seven years before the son had welcomed his father to 
a seat by his side in the House of Eepresentatives, so now 
the father, who had entered the Senate on the 23d of the 
previous June, as one of the Senators from the State of Wis- 
consin, greeted the arrival of his son in the Senate Chamber. 
A father and son Senators of the United States at the same 
time was an unprecedented occurrence. They enjoyed this 
honor together until February, 1855. No case of the kind 
has since occurred. 

Possibly, Henry Dodge and Augustus C. Dodge will remain 
the only instance in our annals of a father and son as con- 
temporaneous Senators of the United States. It was also 
noteworthy that Augustus C. Dodge was the first person born 
west of the Mississippi Eiver to become a Senator of the 
United States. 

On the 8th of February, 1855, Mr. Dodge resigned his seat 
in the Senate, and on the following day President Pierce 
nominated him to be Minister Plenipotentiary to the Court 
of Spain. He sailed with his family from New York on the 
2d of May. Immediately upon his appointment, Mr. Dodge 
commenced the study of the Spanish language with a skillful 
teacher, and acquired such mastery of it that in less than a 
year he understood it in conversation perfectly, and could 
read it as well as he could read English. 



64 DODGE GENEALOGY 

Mr. Dodge returned to the United States early in the 
summer of 1859, and on the 23d of June was nominated by 
the Democratic State Convention of Iowa for Governor, but 
the election went against him. 

At the Joint Convention of the General Assembly, held on 
the 14th of January, 1860, the Democratic members 
expressed their esteem for his character and services by giv- 
ing him their unanimous vote for United States Senator. 
He was Delegate Chicago National Convention, 1864. 
Withdrawn the rest of his life for the most part from official 
station, Mr. Dodge retained to the end his interest in 
public affairs. In 1874 he was elected Mayor of Burling- 
ton by a spontaneous movement of citizens irrespective of 
party. 

Fort Dodge, Iowa; Dodgeville, Iowa; Dodge Street, 
Dubuque, Iowa; and Dodge Street, Burlington, Iowa, are 
named after him, and Dodgeville, Wis. , and Dodge County, 
Wis. , are named after his father. 

A very complete life of Mr. Dodge, by Rev. Wm. Salter, 
is printed in the Iowa Historical Record, January, 1887. 

Mrs. Clara Ann (Hertich) Dodge, wife of Augustus C. 
Dodge, was born at St. Genevieve, June 20, 1819. She was 
the daughter of Prof. Joseph Hertich, a native of Switzer- 
land, who came to the United States about the year 1796, 
landing at Baltimore, and, after teaching awhile in Danville, 
Ky., came to St. Genevieve in 1810, where he established a 
flourishing school, and was married to Miss Mercelite de 
Villars in 1815. 

Mrs. Dodge was descended on her mother's side from 
some of the oldest and most respectable French families who 
settled in the ancient province of Louisiana in the last cen- 
tury, — the families of Villars and Valle. Her mother was 
the youngest of sixteen children of Claude Joseph Villars, 
and was born in New Orleans in 1782. Claude Joseph 
Villars was one of the commissioners appointed by the 
French government for the purchase of goods in that market 
for the French islands in the West Indies. His services in 
promoting the trade and interests of France at New Orleans 
are honorably recorded in Gayarre's History of Louisiana 
under the Spanish Domination, pp. 106-118. He served 
subsequently in the Spanish service as a civil commandant 
in Upper Louisiana. The maiden name of his wife was 
Marie Valle; she was a daughter of Don Francois Valle, 
pere, and sister of Don Francois Valle, fils, who were com- 
mandants of the post of St. Genevieve during most of 
the time it was under the Spanish domination. 

Mrs. Dodge was fond of study and assisted her father in 
the school room. Among his pupils was Augustus C. 
Dodge ; she frequently assisted him in mastering his lessons, 



DODGE GENEALOGY 65 

and their acquaintance ripened in their marriage on the 19th 
of March, 1837. 

Mrs. Dodge accompanied her husband to Madrid when he 
was appointed Minister to Spain, and on leaving there the 
Queen presented her own portrait to Mrs. Dodge in token of 
her majesty's appreciation and esteem. She was buried in 
Burlington, Iowa, by the side of her husband. Near by are 
the graves of Governor Henry Dodge and his wife, and of 
Governor James Clarke and his wife. Governor Clarke was 
the third and last governor of the territory of Iowa ; his wife 
was a sister of General A. C. Dodge.

Col. John Dement, b. Gallatin, Tenn., April 26, 1804, d. 
Jan. 17, 1883. They resided at Vandalia, when it was the 
capital of Illinois, removing from there to Galena, 111. , where 
they remained until 1845, when they went to Dixon, 111., 
and resided there the rest of their lives. 

Colonel Dement was a pioneer of Illinois and a prominent 
landmark in its political history. He was a resident of Illi- 
nois for a period of sixty-five years. He had personally seen 
every governor of the State of Illinois and been personally 
acquainted with every United States senator from the state. 
He had been an eye-witness of the marvelous growth and 
prosperity of his adopted state, had seen the wonderful 
changes in her political history, and was himself one of the 
conspicuous actors during all these years. 

He began his political career as sheriff of Franklin County 
in 1826. In 1828 he was elected representative in the legis- 
lature from Franklin County, and re-elected in 1830, serving 
two terms and taking a leading position in that body. In 
1831 he was elected by the legislature to the office of state 
treasurer, and was twice re-elected to the same office, the last 
time receiving every vote of the Assembly. He held the 
office consecutively until 1836, when he resigned to again 
accept the office of representative in the legislature, to 
which he had been elected to represent the district com- 
posed of the counties of Fayette and Effingham. He was 
induced to do this in order to exert his influence in retaining 
the state capital at Vandalia, at least until after another ses- 
sion of the legislature had been held. As the champion of 
the then "capital district," he battled with the "long nine" 
from Sangamon County, and during the session broke many a 
parliamentary lance with Abraham Lincoln, their able 
leader. At the organization of the house at this session he 
was voted for speaker, receiving next to the highest number 
of votes, but was finally defeated by James Semple, who after- 
wards became United States senator from this state. Promi- 
nent among his colleagues at that memorable session were 
Abraham Lincoln, ISTinian Edwards, John A. McOlernand, 
Edward D. Baker, Jesse K. Dubois, Augustus 0. French, 
N". F. Lindes, James Shields, Stephen A. Douglas, John 
J. Hardin, Richard N. Cullom, and William A. Richard- 
son. 

In 1837 he was appointed receiver of the public land office 
at Galena. In 1840 the office was removed to Dixon, to 
which place he took his family. His fortunes as receiver of 
public moneys were varied and peculiar. He was appointed 
first by President Jackson, and removed by President Har- 
rison ; then appointed by Polk and removed by Taylor ; again 
appointed by President Pierce, re-appointed by Buchanan, 
and continued in office until the land office was removed to 



68 DODGE GENEALOGY 

Springfield. He was a presidential elector on the Demo- 
cratic ticket in 1844, and cast his vote for James K. Polk. 

Colonel Dement had been a member of every constitu- 
tional convention of Illinois except that of 1818, and had the 
distinguished honor of being chosen temporary chairman of 
those of 1862 and 1870. Twice he aspired to the office of 
governor of the state and had a strong following of party 
friends in the nominating conventions. The first time he 
was defeated for the nomination by Joel A. Matteson, and 
the second time by William A. Richardson, who was defeated 
in the election by William H. Russell, Illinois 's first Repub- 
lican governor. 

Colonel Dement gained his military title in the Black 
Hawk War, serving with great gallantry and marked dis- 
tinction in three campaigns. The old chief, Black Hawk, 
himself had such a high opinion of Colonel Dement's cour- 
age and fighting qualities that afterward, in speaking of the 
battles in which he had met Colonel Dement and the forces 
under his command, he took occasion to compliment him 
highly on his skill and bravery in the field. 

Although active as a politician, Colonel Dement was no 
less enterprising as a citizen and successful as a business 
man. His years were full of honor in his private as well as 
in his public life. His children were : 

i. Nancy Ad aline 8 Dement, b. Vandalia, 111., Jan. 10, 1836, d.

Many descendants of the above are shown in Tristram Dodge 
and Descendants, but as the arrangement of that work is not sys- 
tematic, and as it contains no index of names, the author has 
thought best to include it, so that the information may be acces- 
sible through the complete index at the end of this volume. This 
has been made possible by the very generous permission of Mrs. 
Martha A. Dodge of Parkfold, Eockville Centre, Long Island, the 
widow of the late Kobert Dodge, author of Tristram Dodge and 
Descendants. Every name mentioned in Mr. Dodge's work there- 
fore appears in the following pages, to which is added a large 
amount of genealogy in these lines which the writer has gathered 
since the publication of Mr. Dodge's book in 1886. 

Thanks are also due to Mr. Eichard Despard Dodge of Brook- 
lyn, N. Y., who has kindly given the use of his valuable chart of 
Mr. Eobert Dodge's publication and the appendix to same.

THE POLITICAL SENTIMENTS OP THE AUTHOR, 1779 

Hark ! hard ! the trumpet sounds — The din of War's alarms 

O'er seas and solid grounds, Do call us all to arms. 

Who for King George do stand, Their honors soon will shine, 

Their ruin is at hand, Who with the Congress join. 

The acts of Parliament, In them I much delight, 

I hate their curst intent, Who for the Congress fight. 

Who non-resistance hold, They have my hand and heart, 

May they for slaves be sold, Who act a Whiggish part. 

The Tories of the day, They are my daily toast, 

They soon shall sneak away, Who independence boast. 

The Congress of the States, I hate with all my heart, 

Blessing upon them waits, Whoe'er take Britain's part. 

To General Washington Confusion and dishonor, 

May numbers daily run, To Britain's royal banner. 

On Mansfield, North and Bute May daily blessings pour 

Confusion and dispute, On Congress evermore. 

To North, that British Lord, May honors still be done, 

I wish a block, or cord, To General Washington.

THOMAS 3 DODGE, OF LONG ISLAND 

AND HIS DESCENDANTS 

1. Thomas 3 Dodge {Tristram? Tristram 1 ), (seep. 8), b. Jan. 

23, 1684 (N. S. Bee), d. July 14, 1755; m. 1712, Susannah 
Hutchings, b. Dec. 28, 1690, d. April 11, 1778. 

Bichard Despard Dodge writes, May 8, 1902, the following 
concerning the birth of Thomas Dodge: "I went yesterday 
to Port Washington, L. I., and examined the old family 
Bible in possession of Henry T. Dodge, and find the Bible 
was published in 1684, and find the following entries are 
written therein : 

" 'Thomas Dodge was born the 9th of Feb., 1690.' 
" 'Thomas Dodge deceased 19th of July, 1755.' 
" 'Susannah Hutchings was born the 28th of Dec, 1690.' 
" 'Susannah Hutchings deceased the 11th of April, 1778.' " 
Thus it will be seen that the New Shoreham Becords con- 
flict with the family Bible, unless the former refer to another 
Thomas Dodge. Children, b. Cow Neck, L. I., where he

JEREMIAH DODGE, OF LONG ISLAND 

AND HIS DESCENDANTS 

1. Jeremiah 3 Dodge {William, 2 Tristram 1 ). The first record 

we find of him he bought land Cow Neck, Long Island, 
March 31, 1730. He has not been connected with the line 
until Mr. Eicbard Despard Dodge of Brooklyn, N. Y. (see 
his appendix to Tristram Dodge and Descendants) discovered 
a letter written June 16, 1776, by Samuel 4 Dodge (Samuel, 3 
"William, 2 Tristram 1 ) to his "Loving Cousin," Thomas 4 
Dodge (Thomas, 3 Tristram, 3 Tristram 1 ), in which he requests 
that he be remembered to his Uncle Jeremiah's family. He 
adds that he saw Uncle Jeremiah's grandson Stephen Dodge 
at Fort Montgomery "last Wednesday," and that Stephen 
was again in Capt. Eosekrans' Company. New York in the 
Revolution, p. 49, gives Stephen Dodge as a soldier in the 
New York Line, 4th Eegiment, in which Capt. James 
Eosekrans commanded a company. This evidence estab- 
lishes Jeremiah Dodge as the son of William and grandson of 
the first Tristram. Judge A. W. Savary of Annapolis Eoyal, 
Nova Scotia, confirms the above parentage in his excellent 
History of Annapolis County, and writes me, April 29, 1902, 
that the line was given him by the late William B. Chute, 
compiler of the Chute Genealogies. Child (and probably 
others) : 

2. i. Tristram, 4 d. 1763 (or 1760). 

2. Tristram 4 Dodge {Jeremiah, 3 William* Tristram 1 ). He 

settled at Oyster Bay, Long Island, where he d. 1763 ; m. at 
St. George's Church, Hempstead, Jan. 13, 1726, Sarah 6 
Hawxhurst of Oyster Bay, dau. of William 4 Hawxhurst 
(Christopher, 3 Samson, 2 b. 1571, Christopher 1 ). The New 
York Genealogical and Biographical Eecord, Vol. 32, p. 175, 
has an article on the Hawxhurst family by Eobert B. Miller, 
stating that the parents of Tristram, who m. Sarah Hawx- 
hurst, were Tristram and Dorcas Dodge. This seems an 
error. Children named in will (order not known) : 

3. i. Stephen, 5 b. Oyster Bay, L. I., about 1748, d. Wilmot, N. S.. 

June 6, 1808. 
ii. Daniel, had a son, Daniel 6 , who d. N. Y. City about 1814 

without issue. This branch believed to be extinct, 
iii. Freelove, m. Townsend Parish, Dec. 9, 1761. 
iv. Sarah, d. unmarried, 
v. Anne, d. unmarried. 

3. Stephek 5 Dodge {Tristram, 1, Jeremiah, 3 William* Tristram 1 ), 

m. Feb. 17, 1771, Blanche Shadwin. New York in the 
Revolution, p. 49, says he was in Col. James Holmes' regi- 
ment, N. Y. Line, 4th Eegiment, Capt. James Eosekrans' 

102 



DODGE GENEALOGY 103 

Company. Service Aug. 3 to Oct. 17, 1775. (These 
troops were regiments in the United States service under 
General Washington.) The same work gives the following 
military service of Stephen Dodge, but it is thought that the 
second item (p. 83) refers to another Stephen. 

Page 145 : Stephen Dodge was a soldier in the Dutchess 
County Militia, 6th Eegt., Col. Morris Graham. (The 
militia could not be called out of the state for more than 
three months. At the beginning of the war they volun- 
teered, but later they were called out by the Convention. ) 

Page 83: Stephen Dodge was in Col. Albert Pawling's 
Eegiment of The Levies. Service in 1781. (These troops 
were drafts from the different militia regiments and some- 
times from the people direct as well.) 

After the above service in the Continental Army, it seems 
that Stephen Dodge changed his mind as to the prospects 
of the result or as to the merits of the war. 

Page 254 (Supplement) : The Commissioners of Sequestra- 
tion of New York reported, July, 1781, that the property of 
Stephen Dodge had been sold. 

Page 270 (Supplement) : The Commissioners of For- 
feitures of New York listed the estate of Stephen Dodge 
among those forfeited. These commissioners sold the real 
estate of Tories or others who had either gone over to the 
enemy or were suspected of not being friendly to the Ameri- 
can cause. They did not begin work until late in the war, 
and were more systematic in their accounts than the Com- 
mittee of Sequestration, who dealt for the most part with 
personal property. Samuel Dodge was a commissioner for 
the counties of Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster, and as such 
he probably sold the estate of his kinsman, Stephen Dodge. 

The comptroller of the state of New York writes as fol- 
lows concerning the confiscation of the estate of Stephen 
Dodge : 

"The name of Stephen Dodge mentioned in New York in 
the Revolution (Supplement) among those whose estates were 
forfeited and confiscated, appears on the original documents 
as follows : 

"List of farms and houses sold by the Commissioners of 
Sequestration in Dutchess County states that the house and 
small lot of Stephen Dodge of Charlotte was sold to Gilbert 
Worden May, 1779, and that in March, 1780, he paid eight 
pounds. 

"Alphabetical list of forfeited estates contains the name of 
Stephen Dodge. Name also appears on a list of forfeitures. 
No additional information. 

"On a statement of sales of forfeited estates sold by the 
Commissioners of Forfeitures in the Middle District there 
appears the name of Stephen Dodge, opposite which is set 
the amount, one hundred and thirty pounds. 



104 DODGE GENEALOGY 

"A claim of Joseph Mabbett appears for thirty-four 
pounds fourteen shillings and seven pence against the for- 
feited estate of Stephen Dodge, and states the indebtedness 
was incurred previous to forfeiting the estate." 

In Smith's History of Dutchess County, JV. P"., p. 49 (small, 
old edition), it is stated that Charlotte Precinct, just previous 
to the Eevolution, was composed of the present towns of 
Clinton, Stanford, and Washington, in Dutchess County, a 
dozen miles or more northeast of Poughkeepsie. It was set- 
tled about 1750. Mabbettsville P. 0. is in Washington. 
Joseph Mabbett had a claim against the forfeited estate of 
Stephen Dodge of Charlotte, and the P. 0. name is a cor- 
roboration. 

It seems probable that two of this name served in the 
Revolutionary War, and which of them suffered confiscation 
may not be certain, but all authorities seem to agree that 
Stephen 3 Dodge, son of Tristram, emigrated Oct., 1783, with 
wife and five children, to Nova Scotia and settled there pur- 
suant to conditions of treaty of peace. Judge Savary, in his 
History of Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, calls him a 
"worthy Loyalist," and says that he settled first at Granville 
but afterwards in Wilmot, where he obtained a grant to the 
rear of the river grants, north of Middleton West. In a list 
or "muster roll" of discharged officers and disbanded sol- 
diers and Loyalists taken in the County of Annapolis in 
June, 1784, the name of Stephen Dodge appears, "1 man, 
1 woman, 3 children over 10, 3 children under 10, eight in 
all." Another reference to Stephen Dodge is made in the 
sketch of his grandfather Jeremiah on a preceding page.

DODGE ARMS 



APPENDIX 



DODGES IN ENGLAND 

Something may be expected in relation to our ancestors in Eng- 
land. We have heard considerable about a grant of arms to Peter 
Dodge, of Stopworth, County of Chester, in 1306, and a later 
patent to John Dodge, of Eotham, in the County of Kent, in 1546, 
in which he is declared to be descended from the Peter Dodge 
born in Stopworth. These patents are on record in the College 
of Arms, London. 

In Earwaker's history of East Cheshire, 1877, Vol. II, pages 
108-9, occurs as follows: — "The Dodge family were connected 
with Offerton for many generations. The name at first was spelt 
Dogge (the g's being pronounced soft), and sometimes Doggeson. 
One of the earliest references to them is the record of a very curi- 
ous grant of arms, which was granted to Peter Dodge, of Stock- 
port, so early as the 34th Edward I., 1306. From this date down 
to the end of the last century I have met with a large number of 
references to this family, chiefly in connection with Stockport and 
Offerton, and their names are frequently found in the Stockport 
registers, and also in those of Cheadle, Marple, etc. In 1384-5 is 
mention of Robert, son of Robert Doggeson, and in 1390 of 
William, his son, holding lands in Stockport. In 1422-3 William 
Doggeson, Stockport, had lands in the Hillgate, and in 1428 he is 
spoken of as William Dogge, mercer, of Stockport. The name 
then becomes more common, and members of this family are 
found filling the office of Mayor of Stockport. I have a pedigree 
of this family going back to the fourteenth century, in my MS. 
collections, but it is not sufficiently verified to entitle it to be here 
printed. Their connection with Offerton is shown from entries in 
the Stockport registers as early as 1592, and in the Parish Church 
a black marble tablet on the south wall records the burial of "Mr. 
Robert Dodge, of Holliday Hill, in Offerton, interred in Offerton 
pew, May 7th, 1765, aged 54." "A group of houses in this 
township is still known as Dodge Fold, on one of which are the 
initials and S. D., 1742; but there are traces of an earlier build- 
ing." In a foot note on page 109 of the same work : "The Charity 
Commissioners, in their report for Cheshire, 1839, refer to a pre- 
vious return, wherein it was stated that Samuel Dodge, about 
1720, gave £8 for apprenticing poor children in Offerton; and that 
about 1765 Robert Dodge gave land, producing 10s per annum, 
for teaching poor children. After many inquiries, no trace could 
be found of either of these charities in 1839, and the commis- 
sioners came to the conclusion that they were irretrievably lost." 

In Vol. I, pp. 346-7, we find: "The following members of the 
Dodge family filled this office up to 1674, and it is extremely 

119

probable that during the 126 years of which there is at present no 
published list of names, other townsmen of this name acted in the 
same capacity : 1433-4, William Dodge ; 1454, William Dodge; 1475, 
William Dodge; 1483-4, William Dodge; 1485-6, William Dodge ; 
1499-1500, Oliver Dodge; 1571, Oliver Dodge; and 1671, Eobert 
Dodge. In 1812 Samuel Dodge was mayor. 

In Vol. I, p. 346: "In a deed, 1512, are the names of Ealph 
Dodge, Nicholas Dodge and Eobert Dodge, burgesses of Stockport. 
On page 108, same volume, in the pedigree of Thomas Winning- 
ton, of Offerton. Elizabeth 6 Winnington (Randle, 6 d. 1591-2, 
Georgef Richard* Nicholas, 2 Thomas 1 ) m. Oliver Dodge, of 
Stockport. She was living 1553. 

Page 348. In a warrant of 1607, "Stopport" seems to stand 
for Stockport. 

Page 349. William Doggeson, in 1422-3, and Ealph Dodge, 
1437-8, were grantees of land. Bundle Dodge in 1511 appears as 



On page 350 George Dodge, in 1577, makes oath. 

Page 351. "Stopworth, a town of Cheshire," seems, in 1644, 
to be the name for Stockport; in 1538, Stopford; and in 1545, 
Stopforthe. 

The Stockport Advertiser of 14 August, 1891, quotes Ormerod's 
History of Cheshire, p. 838, note, but in the edition of 1819 the 
note is uot found. The quotation refers to the grant of Arms to 
Peter Dodge in 1306. It says "a family named Dodge held a 
"small property in Offerton in the reign of Elizabeth, and were of 
"Holliday Hill, in the same township, in the middle of last 
"century. Dodge Fold is the name of a hamlet in Offerton, 
"having acquired its name from some yeomen of the family." 

Hence there is no doubt about Stockport, in the County of 
Chester, being the seat of a long list of Dodges who have been 
known there for nearly or quite 600 years. It is difficult to 
assign a limit to the probable descendants of Peter Dodge. 

In Earwaker's "East Cheshire," before quoted, p. 231, William 
Dodge [prob. of Stockport] m. 26 August, 1639, Margaret 
Heginbotham; p. 410, Elizabeth, wife of Eobert Dodge, Sen., 
Alderman, 27 March, 1704, was buried; p. 470, Eobert Dodge, 
of Swyndells, gent., was juror 25 January, 1624; p. 411, 12 April, 
1722, Samuel Dodge, of Offerton, yeoman, was buried at his 
house; p. 465, William Dodge is mentioned in 1408. In "Mar- 
riage Licenses by the Bishop of London," Vol. I, p. 17, John 
Dodge, of Christ Church, Newgate, and Agnes Goodwyne, of St. 
Margarets, Westminster, at St. Margarets, aforesaid, 1 September, 
1555; Vol. I, p. 28, 1520-1610, John Dodge, of the city of Lon- 
don, and Anne Parrett, widow, of St. Clement Danes, were 
granted a general license 22 July, 1564. 

In Berry's Genealogies of Kent, 1830 : Francis Champney, son 
of Sir John Champney, who d. 1556, m. Mary, dau. of Edward 
Dodge, of Wrotham and died without issue. Perhaps the most 



DODGES IN ENGLAND 121 

tangible evidence that the Dodges of Essex County, Mass., are 
descended from Peter Dodge, of Stopworth, Cheshire, is to be 
found in a letter from the poet Tupper to Eobert Dodge, of New 
York, in 1847, while the latter believed he was descended from 
William or Eichard Dodge. Eobert Dodge was b. in N. Y., 
15 Dec., 1820, and is author of "Tristram Dodge and his 
Descendants." 

Martin Farquar Tupper, D. C. L., was b. in London in 1810, 
educated at the Chester House and Christ Church, Oxford, where 
he grad. in 1831, and was admitted to the bar at Lincoln's Inn. 
He is the author of about 35 volumes ; one of the most famous and 
most criticized was "Proverbial Philosophy," 1846.

Albury Near Guilford, Surrey, England. 
October 14th, 1847. 
My Dear Dodge: — 

Before I answer your kind letter just received, I will descant on 
the interesting topic of your Coat Armor ; and here I have to con- 
gratulate you on a matter always pleasing to an intellectual and 
high minded man; the undoubted antiquity and gentle blood of 
which you can boast. 

Long before Virginia was christened, aye, long before Columbus 
found out your western world, your goodly ancestry were of hon- 
orable station in the dear "Old Land" and gladdened Norfolk and 
Kent and Cheshire with all the hospitality of good old English 
gentlemen, all of the olden time. 

Now let me tell you that this is a point of respectability which 
many an ennobled man cannot boast, and I think it is one too, 
which gives secret satisfaction, even to a republican nature. 

My heraldic friend has been able to collect this much about 
your Coat Armor and ancestry, and he tells me that on your 
return you can have as copious extracts as you please, with an 
authorized drawing of your Arms for a trifling fee. I send you a 
sketch of your true Coat, and extract from my friend's note the 
following: "In the Herald College a manuscript volume of the 
time of Charles 2d. has the following entry 

Dodge, (Cheshire). 

» 'Barry of 6 or and sa: on a pale gule: a woman's dug distilling 
milk proper. The above is the only record or allusion to the 
'Weeping Eye' and it is supposed to have arisen from ill done or 
defective emblazonment, which has mistaken the breast for the eye. 
"In the College Books we find the second Coat granted to Peter 
Dodge, Stopworth, Cheshire temp: Edward 1st., the crest being a 
demi Sea Lion. These arms are repeated in three different MS. 
volumes in the College Library ; once in pen and ink and twice in 



122 DODGES IN ENGLAND 

colors ; with one is a notice of three generations of Dodges, with 
another, where the arms of Houghton and Dodge are in juxta- 
position, is a record of the marriage of John Houghton, Alder- 
man, and Sheriff of London to one of the Dodges." 

Some of these days when you return, the thing will be worth 

looking into. Possibly you continue both Coats, but "Rouge 

Dragon" considers that your legitimate one is as within (Cheshire). 

But enough; you will think me unphilosophic in haying dwelt 

so long upon this, but I knew it would interest you. 

Yours very sincerely, 

Signed, Martin F. Tupper. 
Mr. Robert Dodge, 

Care Hon. H. Stiles, 

Charge D 'Affaires, Vienna.

E. de V. Vermont, 1886 :

The emigrant, William Dodge, came over from Cheshire, 
England, to Salem in 1629. He was issued from an old Kentish 
stock, the only one of the name noticed in Burke. 

Several patents, granting arms or confirming preceding grants, 
are preserved in the family to this day.

COAT-ARMOR IN AMERICA 127 

"In the English roll of armes to-day there are some sixty-six 
thousand blazonings. Of these less than three thousand are in 
the peerage and baronetage, the others are in the gentry or people 
of England. 

"Again, we find coat-armor in the earliest times was closely 
connected with the bearing of surnames, the one begetting the 
other. Not until after the 13th century were surnames estab- 
lished, and almost, if not quite at the same time, heraldry became 
a regulated usage. So armes and surnames in Europe have been 
synonymous for centuries. For a man without armor — that is, 
not bearing coat-armor — it was unnecessary to have a surname, as 
he was either a vassal, servitor, retainer or peasant. When he had 
gained or assumed a surname the possession of coat-armor soon 
followed. As to the right of inheriting a name, that is so estab- 
lished as to be understood and never disputed. A grant of coat- 
armor indicates an attachment to name, and implies that it is a 
hereditament — never going with a title or estate, but strictly and 
solely with the name to the immediate heir. As we accepted the 
right of inheriting family names, and through usage the right to 
bear armes jointly, naturally it follows that the right still exists, 
only ending when all branches of the house are extinct. In fact, 
the right cannot be vacated by disuse on the part of a family in 
the line of descent, as is often the case, and any generation, after 
first establishing the right by connecting the lineage thus broken, 
can claim and bear the coat-of -armes. " The above is somewhat 
abridged from Mortimer Delano, Pursuivant of Armes, in Vogue. 

THE DODGE ARMS.

From Eev. S. Baring Gould to Charles Dodge, Jr. 
Lew Trenchard, N. Devon, Eng., 9 May, 1895. 

Dear Sir : — The Doidge family of this county came from Milton 
Abbott near [5 ms. n. w. of] Tavistock [on river Tavy, 16£ ms. 
n. of Plymouth] where they were tenants of the abbots of Tavis- 
tock in Henry VII's reign [1485-1509], they occupied a fine old 
house, Coombe, not their own but subject to the Duke of Bed- 
ford. They got reduced at the beginning of this century & were 
dispersed. The ante-penultimate Duke pulled Coombe down. 
Somewhere about 1750-80 this [Duke] had Hurlditch in Larneston 
[parish] , and the shield in the arms in plaster was over the door- 
way. Hurlditch has been rebuilt but the present owner, R. 
Mushead, Esq., has the original plaster cast. The arms are the 
same as those you describe. 

The representative of the Doidges now is a surgeon, Mr. 
Maurice Doidge, who has, I believe, some mementos of the family, 



THE INHERITED RIGHT TO BEAR COAT- 
ARMOR IN AMERICA 

"Most conclusive of all the mass of proof of the American right 
to use coat-armor is set forth in these words of Washington: 'It 
is far from my design to intimate any opinion that heraldry, 
Coat-armor, &c, might not be rendered conducive to public and 
private use with us, or that they can have any tendency unfriendly 
to the purest spirit of republicanism. On the contrary, a different 
conclusion is deducible from the practice of Congress and the 
states, all of which have established some kind of Armorial devices 
to authenticate their official instruments.' — Maxims of George 
Washington, &c. J. F. Shroeder, D.D., p. 22. 

"Many seals are now in possession of descendants, and give 
substantial proof of the inheritance of coat-armor. The Colonial 
governors all used armes, as shown by the seals of Sir Wm. Phipps 
and many others, of which copies are extant. 

"General Washington had two seal forms as well as the book 
plate. Heraldry, though applied to coat-armor, is in truth a 
term for the work of the herald, and is much more than blazoning 
and marshalling armes. The coat-of-armes is literally a dignified 
trade mark, in the genealogical sense, or badge of the name and 
family to which it pretends. It is useful for the identification of 
persons and property, and is more to be relied on in research than 
the family names, which, by reason of variations in spelling in old 
records, etc., are difficult to follow, while the accuracy of a coat- 
of-armes can always be relied on. It shows connection, descent 
and important marriages — being the most useful guide to histo- 
rians, genealogists and pedigree compilers. It began seven hundred 
years ago as an aid to the identification of persons, and to-day it 
exists exactly in the same sense. The use of heraldic bearings is 
not indicative of rank or title. It is, and always has been, the 
distinction of a house, whether commoners, gentles or nobles. In 
all countries this is true to-day, and in them all men, if gentlemen 
— as we in America understand the term — are entitled to this 
name distinction, for legal as well as social purposes. This is 
equally true of the helmet, crest, mantle, or flourish and motto. 

"In this country we preach that all men are equal, and long 
before that doctrine was accepted politically, coat-armor made all 
men above servants equal. There is absolutely no class or distinc- 
tion in heraldic bearings ; all coat-armor is complete, finished and 
equal, one shield to another, the armes of a king are no more, no 
less, and no better than those of the poorest commoner in the king- 
dom.

THE DODGE ARMS 129 

correctly described in the account you quote of it in Mr. Tupper's 
letter; it should be called a "demi-sea dog" not "sea-lion," so I 
have always been told. I have records of the Doidges being seated 
at Milton Abbot, near Tavistock in "West Devon, for more than 
two centuries past ; really they have been in that neighborhood it 
is almost certain for over three centuries if not four ; but I have 
no precise date earlier than 1655. From this you will see that I 
cannot tell you anything of William of Somersetshire who was the 
founder of the American branch. But in all the old county 
histories of Devon, and Cornwall also, (parish of Stoke, Clairsland) 
there are notes of a gentle family of this name residing in West 
Devon for centuries past. At one time they held considerable 
properties in that part of the county of Devon. I have a photo- 
graph of the manor-house of Hurlditch in the parish of Larneston, 
near Tavistock, with the arms of Doidge over the chief entrance ; 
this place belonged to the family in the early part of the last 
century and has been pulled down to be rebuilt within the last few 
years. The present owner who has built the new house, sent me 
the photo, of the old one. There was also Coombe House, in 
Milton Abbot, Devon, which I saw once, and which was pulled 
down about 30 years ago. This was a fine old house, and with an 
estate round it, had belonged to the Doidges till sold to the Duke 
of Bedford on the death of Maurice Doidge, my grandfather's 
grand uncle ; the house had stood and belonged to the Doidges 
(according to Mr. Baring Gould) since Elizabeth's time. 

How the family got into Devonshire I do not know, but cer- 
tainly they spring from the Cheshire family, the founder of which 
was Peter Doidge of Stopworth to whom Edward I. granted the 
arms we now bear in the year 1273 (April 8 is the exact date of 
the grant) (not 1305). 

I have never heard the connection of the Devon branch with the 
original family of Cheshire traced ; but it is the same family, and 
evidently from the arms the Norfolk and Kent families were also 
descendants of the Cheshire stock. These two branches in 
Norfolk and Kent appear to be extinct. Doubtless the Somerset- 
shire family from whom you trace descent had emigrated from the 
adjoining county of Devon — I do not know that any Doidges are 
now found in Somerset. Do you happen to know in what parish 
of that county the death of John Doidge, the father of William of 
Salem, is registered? If so I should much like to know. 

I have a few bits of old plate in my possession, but none dating 
back to the date of the emigration to America. I have two fine 
old silver tankards, one bearing date 1707 and the initials H. D., 
another of almost exactly the same date (as the marks show) 
bearing the arms of Doidge ; a smaller one bearing the date 1720, 
and also a few old spoons bearing either crest or initials, the oldest

old plate, &c, but he does not know anything of the pedigree. 
He was at Lifton [4 ms. e. of Launceston] taut has left. His 
address now is Elmhurst, Haverhill, Suffolk. 

There are a number of Doidges, farmers & laborers in this 
neighborhood. Farmers of this name still in Milton Atabott. 
The name hereabout is spelled Doidge, but pronounced Dodge. 

There is a Maurice Doidge in Larneston p'sh, N. Tavistock 
yeoman, owner of Woodley, which has been in the Doidge posses- 
sion for some centuries.

Dear Sir : — I shall be most pleased to do anything I can for you 
in the matter of the Coat-of-Arms but the same is much worn by 
exposure and I scarcely think it would be worth photographing. 

I am leaving home to-day for a couple of weeks and on my 
return will see Mr. Baring Gould and get his opinion on the 
matter. I will then write you again. Please excuse haste. 

Yours truly,

My dear Sir : — I must ask your pardon for my delay in answer- 
ing your letter. I have been much from home of late and my 
time has been fully occupied. I am much interested to hear of 
an American branch of the family, for such no doubt yours is. 

I fear that my information as to the family is very meagre. I 
have never had time to thoroughly investigate the subject: cer- 
tainly I claim the right to the use of the arms. The Devonshire 
Doidges have always used them for the past two centuries and I 
have believed ours to be really the only direct line of Doidges 
left, for the name is very rare in England — the other form of it — 
Dodge— your form, is much more common in the States, I fancy, 
than in England. You will see from the slip I enclose (which I 
use for pasting inside any books I value) what the arms are. You 
will also see from the head of this sheet of paper that we — I mean 
many generations past — have taeen in the habit of using the crest 
as is the custom in this country. I do not think the crest is quite

the tone of your letter they will, I am sure, possess some interest 
for you. 

I have to thank you very much for the volume you sent me, the 
pedigree of the American Dodges, which is of course of much 
interest to me. I hope that some day you will be able to carry out 
your desire to visit the old country, in which case pray remember 
that Glastonbury is in itself a most interesting town, and that you 
will not be without a welcome if you pay it a visit. I am, my 
dear Sir, faithfully and sincerely yours, 

Maueicb J. Doidge. 



130 THE DODGE ARMS 

these things would interest you as you ask me for photographs 
of family possessions ; if so, of course it will give me pleasure to 
obtain one and send to you. I wish it was in my power to tell you 
more of the Cheshire Doidges from whom we both spring. I have 
often thought of going into Cheshire to endeavor to trace the 
family, but have never had the time to spare for what is a long 
and troublesome search. But if the small amount of information 
I have been able to give you is of the slightest interest to you I am 
very glad to have been able to do it. Believe me to be 

My dear Sir, 
Very faithfully yours, Maukice J. DoiDGE.

Glastonbury, Somerset, England. 

March 15, 1896. 

My dear Sir : — I greatly regret leaving your last letter so long 
unanswered, but my time has been very fully occupied. I have 
been compelled to shift my quarters from the county of Suffolk to 
this place, thus returning once more to the West of England. I 
find that Chinnock, of which you speak, is not very far distant 
from Glastonbury and I hope one day to be able to go there and 
perhaps I may collect any interesting item of news relative to 
your branch of the family ; if so I will not fail to communicate 
them to you. I find that the name Dodge is still known in this 
immediate neighborhood, so that evidently it has lingered in this 
part of Somerset since the emigration of William in the 17th 
century. I can only answer your question as to the spelling of 
the name by telling you that so far as I know it has always been 
spelt in that way by the West Devon branch : in some old county 
histories & books of that sort dating some centuries back you will 
find the family mentioned as that of "Doidge or Dodge." 

The translation of the motto "Leni perfruar otio" is "Let me 
enjoy gentle ease." So many of the family have acted thoroughly 
on the motto that the last few generations have not enjoyed any 
of the ease due to the possession of property, as it has long ago 
disappeared. 

St. Badeaux, the place in Devonshire which you mention, is 
not far distant from Tavistock, both being in the western part of 
the county, — so no doubt can exist of the Devonshire origin of the 
Somersetshire Dodges. The photographs of the silver plate 
represent four silver tankards, the earliest of Queen Anne's time, 
— the seal is that of Eichard Doidge who was High Sheriff of 
Devon in the last century sometime, and the largest of the three 
tankards also belonged to him and bears on it the arms of Doidge 
impaled with those of some other family, probably his wife's. 
These things of course are of no interest to any one else but from

INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES 

bt the bev. william cogswell, d.d. 

"what's in a name?" 

Imago animi, vultus; vitae, Nomen est. — Puteanus. 

Individual Names, or Names of Individuals, were given for the 
distinction of persons, one from another, as Adam, Eve, Noah, 
Abraham, Sarah, Paul and John. Such names have always been 
in use, and, at the present day, are generally termed christian or 
baptismal names. They were adopted originally, to a great 
extent, from the consideration of their signification. As an 
illustration of this remark, we present the following names: — 
First, of men: namely, Adam — earthy, taken out of the earth; 
Abel — just; Alexander — helper of men; Andrew — manful; Ben- 
jamin — son of the right hand; Caleb — hearty; Chrysostom — 
golden month; Constantine — firm; Daniel — judgment of God; 
David — beloved; Edmund — happy; Edwin — happy victor; 
Edward — happy keeper; Ellis, (corruptly for Elias) — Lord God; 
Erasmus — amiable ; Francis — free ; Frederic — rich peace ; Gabriel 
— man of God; George — husbandman; Godfrey — God's peace; 
Goodrich — rich in God; Hector — defender; Humphrey — house 
peace ; Hierome — holy name ; Isaac — laughter ; Israel — prevailing 
in the Lord; John — gracious; Joseph — increase of the Lord; 
Leonard — lion-hearted ; Luke — luminous ; Matthew — reward ; 
Moses — drawn forth; Nathaniel — the gift of God; Neale — 
blackish; Nicholas — conqueror; Oswald — steward; Paul — won- 
derful; Philippe — lover of horses; Eobert — famous in counsel; 
Eoger — quiet; Eeuben — vision of the sun; Seaborn — born upon 
the sea; Sebastian — majestic; Sylvanus — woodman; Stephen — a 
crown; Theophilus — lover of God; Thomas — a twin; Vincent — 
victorious; William — a defence of many; Wilfred — much peace; 
Zachariah — the memory of the Lord. Secondly, of women: 
namely, Abigail — the father's joy; Alice — noble; Adeline — 
descending from nobles ; Barbara — strange ; Catharine — chaste ; 
Clara — bright; Dorcas — a roebuck; Eleanor — pitiful; Eve — 
giving life; Florence — flourishing; Joanna — grace of the Lord; 
Judith — praising; Lucia — lightsome; Mary — exalted; Margaret 
— precious; Priscilla — ancient; Bosamund — rose of the world; 
Susanna — lily; Sophia — wisdom; Theodosia — God's gift; Ursula 
— little bear. Thus, christian names were originally given as 
expressive of some circumstance of birth, personal quality pos- 
sessed, good desired by parents, or some other reason. Much 
importance was attached to the name as indicating the fortune of 
the child. Hence the proverb, "Bonum nomen, bonum omen.''''

used Fitz, a corruption for Fitz, (son,) as John, Fitz Eobert; 
Robert, Fitz William; William, Fitz Hugh; Hugh, Fitz Gerald; 
Gerald, Fitz Herbert; Herbert, Fitz Eoy. 

Surnames began to be used by the French nation about the 
commencement of the eleventh century,* and by the English 
nation about the time of William, the Conqueror, in 1066, when 
the Conquest was achieved, or, as some suppose, as early as 
Edward the Confessor, who began his reign in 1041. It is 
certain that the occasional use of surnames in England dates 
beyond the ingress of the Normans. But before the Conquest 
it was usual for persons to subscribe to deeds and all legal 
instruments, with a cross and a single name, without a surname, 
in the following manner: + Ego Eadredus confirmani; + Ego 
Edmundus corroborani; + Ego Sigarius conclusi. In the 
authentic record of the Exchequer in England, called the Dooms- 
day Book, surnames are first found in public records in estab- 
lished order. The Scotch date the use of surnames about the 
time the English do ; but it is not certain that they are correct in 
doing it. In England these names were introduced gradually. 
They were first assumed by the people of the "better sort," gen- 
erally, who took the names of their estates, and it was not until 
the reign of Edward II., (1307,) that they were "settled among 
the common people fully." In Germany and some kindred 
nations, family names were little used by the commoners before 
the fourteenth century. The most current opinion is, that sur- 
names can scarcely be said to have been permanently settled 
before the era of the Eeformation, in the sixteenth century, f 

The origin of surnames is various. The greatest number, 
probably, are derived from towns, villages, seats or patrimonial 
possessions. The most ancient, says the learned Camden, are 
from places in Normandy, and countries adjoining it. All names 
having the French De, I)u, Des, De la prefixed, or beginning or 
ending with Font, Fant, Beau, Saint, Mont, Bois, Aux, are of 
this description. The names of Warren, Mortimer, Percy, 
Devereaux, Harcourt, Tracy, Montfort, and Cayly are derived 
from places in Normandy. Indeed, there is scarcely a village in 
that country which has not given a name to some family in 
England. From places in France are derived the names of 
Courtney, Bollein, Paris, Corby, Bohun, Saint George, Saint 
Andrew, Cressy, Lyons, Loring,J and Beaumont. Nearly all 

* Ducange says the use of surnames in France began about the year 987 
when the barons adopted the practice of designating themselves by their 
estates. 

t Archcelogia, Vol. XVIII., p. 108. 

t The name of Loring, though not found in the Roll of Battel Abbey, 
by Fox, is found in Leland's copy of the Roll, to which Lower, in his 
Essays on English Surnames, says, "The preference ought unquestionably 
to be conceded." The name Loring is derived from Lorraine, a province 
in France. 



142 INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES 

Family names were given for the purpose of particularizing 
families. They are a sort of hereditary distinction, and are called 
by the French and English, surnames, because added to christian 
or baptismal names. In the early state of society among the 
Jews, Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, Eomans, Germans, Gauls, 
Britons, indeed among every nation, no individual had more than 
one name; but in a more advanced or refined period, an additional 
name was given, in order to mark the different families to which 
individuals belonged, as well as to distinguish members of the 
same family from each other. Among the Greeks a few families 
at Athens and Sparta had family names. When the league was 
established between the Eomans and the Sabines, to confirm 
which it was covenanted that the Eomans should add Sabine 
names to theirs, and that the Sabines should add Eoman names 
tb theirs. These were termed nomina Centilitia, et cognomina, 
as their previous names were termed prcenomina. Commonly 
among the Eomans, each person had three names; namely, a 
proper name (prcenomen, which distinguished the individual,) the 
name of the clan, (nomen,) and the family name, (cognomen.) 
Sometimes also a surname was added, which was given on account 
of some distinguished exploit or remarkable event. The prcenomen 
was placed first, and usually written with one or two letters ; as 
M. for Marcus, Q. for Quintus, On. for Cneius. Then followed 
the nomen; as Fdbius, Julius (from the clan (gens,) Fabian, 
Julian. ) Lastly came the cognomen; as Cicero, Scipio. In the 
name M. Tullius Cicero, M. is the prcenomen, which distinguishes 
him from his brother Quintus; Tullius, the nomen, which dis- 
tinguishes the clan, (gens;) and Cicero, the cognomen, which shows 
his family. An instance of a surname, (agnomen,) is Africanus, 
added to Scipio; as Puilius Cornelius Scipio Africanus. 

The Hebrews in their genealogies, instead of surnames, used 
the name of the father with Ben, which signifies son, as Melchi, 
Ben Addi; Addi, Ben Oosam; Cosam, Ben Elmadam; — that is, 
Melchi, son of Addi; Addi, son of Cosam; Cosam, son of Elma- 
dam. A similar practice prevailed among our English ancestors, 
as Ceonred Ceolwalding, Ceolwald Cuthing, Cuth Cuthwinning; 
— that is, Ceonred, son of Ceolwald, Ceolwald, son of Cuth, Cuth, 
son of Cufchwin, the termination or suffix, ing, meaning son or 
offspring. In the same sense, the Welsh Britons used Ap, (son,) 
as Ap Owen; Owen, Ap Harry; Harry, Ap Ehese — that is, son 
of Owen ; Owen, son of Harry ; Harry, son of Ehese. The same 
may be said with regard to the Scotch in the use of Mac, (son,) 
as Donald, Mac Wharter; Wharter, Mac Dowell; Dowell, Mac 
Clelland; — that is, Donald, son of Wharter; Wharter, son of 
Dowell ; Dowell, son of Clelland. With the Irish, the expression 
for son is Oy or 0'; as, O'Neal; Neal, O'Eiley; Eiley, O'Brien; 
Brien, O'Connell; Connell, O'Harra; — that is, son of Neal; Neal, 
son of Eiley ; Eiley, son of Brien ; Brien, son of Connell ; Connell, 
son of Hara. In like manner, the old Normans in their surnames 



INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES 145 

Hamlin, Talbot, and Maynard were formerly christian names, 
and in use about the time of William the Conqueror. 

Many surnames are formed by the addition of son to a christian 
name, as Williamson, Eobertson, Eichardson, Johnson. 

Nicknames or nursenames have, in process of time, become 
family names: as Bill, or Billy, for William; Dick, or Dickey, for 
Richard. 

We might proceed to give other specimens of the origin of 
names ; but our limits will not permit us to enlarge. A sufficient 
number has been presented to show that it is almost indefinitely 
various. It is computed that there are between twenty and 
thirty thousand surnames in England alone. Their origin, too, 
is often curious. Persons fond of the study of individual or 
family nomenclature will be entertained and instructed with the 
perusal of Camden's British Bemains, Lower on English Sur- 
names, Chambers' and Brande's Dictionaries, and the different 
Encyclopaedias on this subject, to which we have been greatly 
indebted in preparing this piece. — New England Historical and 
Genealogical Register. 



144 INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES 

the towns, villages and hamlets, also, in England and Scotland, 
have given names to families, as Murray, Clifford, Stafford, 
Gordon, Douglass, Heydon, Barkeley, Leigh, Hastings, Hamleton, 
Booths, Clinton, Cotton, Hume, Stanhope, Sydenham, Arlington, 
Whitney, Wentworth, Fanshaw, Carie, Hartshorne, Gifford, 
Bassett, Howard, Talbot, Lovell, Tirell, Blunt, and Bissett. 
Most of the families in Cornwall have names, a constituent part 
of which is contained jn the following distich : 

"By Tre, Ros, Pol, Lan, Caer and Pen,* 
You may know the most Cornish men." 

All names, which in England had Of set before them, which in 
Cheshire and the North was contracted into A, as Thomas a 
Dutton, John a Standish, Adam a Kirby, or which in Latin had 
De prefixed, were derived from places. The same may be said to 
a considerable extent, of those names which had Le before them. 
Under the head of local names may be placed also such as Hill, 
Wood, Field, Pool, Pond. 

Next to local names or those derived from places, the most 
numerous are those derived from trades or professions, as Archer, 
Brewer, Brazier, Baker, Carpenter, Goldsmith, Cutter, Fisher, 
Taylor, Potter, Smith, Saddler, Painter, Webster, Wheeler, 
Wright, Wheelwright, Mason, Gardner, Turner. 

Some names have been assumed from office, as Chamberlain, 
Cooke, Marshall, Sergeant, Foster, Fowler, Page, Butler, Clarke, 
Proctor, Abbot, Bishop, Priest, Dean. 

Names have been taken from titles of honor, dignity, or estate, 
as King, Prince, Lord, Baron, Knight, Squire. 

Names also have been derived from bodily or mental qualities, 
as Goodman, Wise, Proud, Strong, Armstrong, Long, Low, Short, 
Little. 

Periods of life have given rise to names, as Old, Young, Child, 
Baby. 

Some names have been derived from parts of the body, as Head, 
Whitehead, Legge, Foot, Arm, Heart; and others from the color 
of complexion or dress, as White, Black, Brown, Green; and 
others again from fruits and flowers, as Pear, Peach, Lilly, Bose. 

Many names are derived from beasts, as Lamb, Lyon, Bear, 
Buck, Fox, Wolf, Hog, Boe, Badger, Hind, Hare; others from 
birds, as Dove, Lark, Nightingale, Swallow, Peacock, Sparrow, 
Swan, Woodcock, Crow, Wren, Parrott; and others from fishes, 
as Pike, Crab, Bass, Salmon, Haddock. 

A considerable number of surnames have originated from 
christian names, as Francis, Leonard, Herbert, Giles, Lewis, 
Humphrey, James, Jacob, Daniel, Thomas, Anthony, Alexander. 

The names of Corbet, Goodwin, Goodrich, Fabyan, Hervey, 
Howard, Osburn, Payne, Searle, Star, Swain, Wade, Warner, 

♦These words signify in order a town, a heath, a pool, a church, a 
castle, a promontory. 



ORIGIN OF NAMES OF DAYS OF WEEK AND MONTHS 147 

January is from the Latin, Januarius, so called from Janus, 
an ancient Italian King, who was deified after his death. A 
Temple, and in it a Statue, was erected in honor of him; the 
latter represented him with two faces, looking in opposite direc- 
tions, upon the past and upon the future. January being the 
boundary month between successive years, the one face was 
towards the retiring, the other towards the coming year. Hence 
the expression "Jamts -faced," now used as a term of reproach. 

February is from the Latin, Februo, to purify by sacrifice, 
and thus signified the month of purification. 

March, from the Latin, Martius, Mars, the god of war. 
April, from the Latin, Aprilis, opening, open ; because in this 
month all things are, as it were, opened and budded. 

May, from the goddess Maia, wife of Jupiter and the mother 
of Mercury; to her sacrifices were offered on the first day of the 
month. At this late period flowers are sacrificed on that day, if 
not to her. 

June, from Juno, the queen of the goddesses, and patroness of 
marriage and wedded life. 

July, from Julius, the surname of Caius Caesar, the 
Dictator, who was born in this month. Mark Anthony first 
gave this month the name of July; previously it was called 
Quintilis, signifying the fifth month in the year according to the 
old Eoman calendar. 

August was so called in honor of the Emperor, Octavius 
Augustus, who entered upon his first consulate in this month ; 
previous to which it was called Sextilis, six, the sixth month from 
March. 

September, from the Latin, septem, seven, the seventh month. 
October, from the Latin, octo, eight, the eighth month of the 
primitive Roman year. 

November, from the Latin, novem, nine, the ninth month, and 
December also from the Latin, decern, ten, the tenth and last 
month in the year of the early Romans. 



ORIGIN OF THE NAMES OF THE DAYS OF 

THE WEEK AND OF THE NAMES 

OF THE MONTHS 

Sunday, the first day of the week, now generally termed 
Sabbath day, was called Sun's day, being a day anciently dedi- 
cated to the Sun. 

Monday, a compound word of Moon and day; a day formerly 
sacred to that planet. 

Tuesday, is from Tuesdaeg, the name of a deity, that presided 
oyer combats and litigation ; hence Tuesday is Court day, assize 
day, the day for combat or commencing litigation. 

Wednesday, anciently Wodin's day, from Wodin, a deity 
among the northern nations of Europe. 

Thursday, from Thor's day; the day consecrated to Thor, 
the god of thunder. 

Friday, from Friga's day; a day consecrated to Friga, the 
Venus of the north. 

Saturday, from Saturn's day; a day devoted to Saturn, one 
of the most ancient of the heathen gods; the reputed son of 
Ccelus and Terra, (Heaven and Earth,) and father of Jupiter. 

Instead of these names, the early settlers of New England used 
the words, first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh, 
to denote the several successive days of the week, and the like 
words, up to the twelfth, to designate the several months in the 
year; but, when writing, they more frequently made use of 
Arabic numerals, from 1 to 12, to designate the months; "because 
they would avoid all memory of heathenish and Idol's names." 

At the foundation of Eome, about 750 years before the 
Christian era, the year consisted of ten months, and of them 
March was accounted the first month in the year. Two others, 
January and February, were subsequently added by Numa 
Pompilius ; whereby the year consisted of twelve months, Janu- 
ary being the eleventh and February the twelfth and last month 
in the year ; the length of which was established by Julius Caesar, 
who appointed it to consist of 365 days and 6 hours; which 
6 hours made one day in four years ; and that day every fourth 
year, added to the number of days in February, makes that year 
to consist of 366 days, and is called leap year, on account of its 
leaping forward one day. 

He also placed January at the Winter solstice, followed by Feb- 
ruary; whereby January became the first month, March, the 
third, and December the twelfth and last month in the year. 
This is called the Julian Calendar. 

146 



OLD AND NEW STYLE 

Style, in Chronology, is the method of computing time accord- 
ing to the Julian and Gregorian calendar. The former is called 
old, and the latter, new style. 

The Julian calendar was found to be erroneous, as it contained 
more than eleven minutes in a year too much. This excess 
amounted to ten days in 1582 ; in which year Pope Gregory XIII. , 
corrected that calendar, and, to bring the vernal equinox, which 
happened on the ninth of March in that year, to the twenty-first 
of that month in future years, and as it occurred in 325, directed 
that the year 1582 should consist of 365 days only, and that ten 
days be abated between the fourth and fifteenth of October in 
that year ; and furthermore, to preserve future regularity in the 
seasons, he ordered that no year ending a century should be leap 
year, excepting each four hundredth year; whereby three days 
are abated in every four hundred years, three days being nearly 
equal to eleven minutes for every year in that period. 

By each four hundredth year is meant the closing year of that 
number of centuries, that can be divided by 400 without a 
remainder. Such are leap years of 366 days; when there is a 
remainder, they are common years, or years of 365 days. Thus 
1600, 2000, and 2400 are leap years, while 1700, 1800, and 1900, 
are common years ; and all other years in a century, which can be 
divided by 4 without a remainder, are also leap years, as 1804, 
1808, 1812, &c. 

This calendar was soon adopted in most countries, but for a 
time rejected by our Protestant ancestors, on account of its pagan 
and popish origin. 

At length, by an Act of Parliament, in 1751, it was adopted in 
England, and thereby extended to her colonies. 

That Act provided for regulating the commencement of the 
year, abated eleven days of September, 1751, the third to be 
accounted the fourteenth, and the year to commence on the first 
day of January, 1752. 

The difference between old and new style, was, previous to 
1700, ten days only; but as that year contained only 365 days, by 
the Gregorian calendar, instead of 366, as by the Julian, it 
became, after 1700, eleven days, and another being lost by the 
omission of leap year in 1800, the difference now is twelve days. 

Previous to 1752, two methods of commencing the year pre- 
vailed in England; the Ecclesiastical, as also the Legal year

commenced on the twenty-fifth of March, and the Historical year 
on the first of January. 

This two-fold practice of beginning the year led to double 
dating the year, between the first of January and the twenty-fifth 
of March; as, for instance, 10th of Feb., 1725-6. These figures 
denote, the 4 first, the Ecclesiastical and Legal year, beginning in 
March, while the fifth, or suffix 6, denotes the Historical year. 

These months were frequently written in Arabic numbers, 
instead of being expressed by their names, and preceded by the 
number of the days in the month. This practice ceased in 1752, 
when the year for all purposes was made to begin on the first day 
of January.

her life natural if my sons Michael and William shall happen so 
long to live. To Wife Margery forty pounds and the bed that I 
now lie in and the bedstead and all things belonging thereunto. 
I give and bequeath unto her so much of my other household stuff 
as shall amount to four pounds, of such kinds as she shall think 
most needful and useful for her. Item. I give and bequeath 
unto my son William forty pounds more, over and above that 
portion which I have already given him. To my son Richard one 
sheep and to take his choice in my whole flock; and to John the 
son of the said Eichard forty shillings. To Mary my daughter 
twenty shillings and to her son John forty shillings. And my 
will is that all these goods shall be delivered half a year after my 
decease. 

Item. All the rest of my goods unmentioned I give and 
bequeath unto my son Michael whom I make and ordain the execu- 
tor of this my last will and testament. 

Witnesses, Geo. Parsons, clerk, William Dodge, William Tem- 
pleman. {Sadler, 101.) 

[Chinnock and Coker are neighboring parishes in the extreme south 
part of Somerset Co., and Halstock, Dorset Co., is just over the line 
south of the above parishes.] 

If William Dodge, one of the above witnesses, was not William the 
emigrant, then his relationship is at present unknown. Tradition says 
William returned to England and was married. 

From Hubbard's Narrative in Young's Chronicles of Massachu- 
setts Bay, it appears that Eev. John White, of Dorchester, Dor- 
setshire, being grieved in 1626 at the failure of the first company, 
wrote to Mr. Eoger Conant : 

"Not" to desert the business, faithfully promising that if himself 
with three others, viz. : John Woodbury, John Balch and Peter Palfrey 
would stay at Naumkeag [Salem] and give timely notice thereof, he would 
provide a patent for them and likewise send them whatever they should 
write for, either men or provision, or goods wherewith to trade with the 
Indians. " Answer was returned that they would all stay on those terms. 

The delay in receiving returns was so great that the last three 
repented of their engagement and were on the point of going to 
Virginia with Mr. Lyford. Mr. Conant's sublime resolution to 
remain alone, finally prevailed with the others to remain with him. 
They then (1627) sent John Woodbury back to England "to 
procure necessaries for a plantation." Gov. Endicott was sent 
over in the summer of 1628, arriving in September and making 
the colony to consist of about 100, including the new comers. 
His prosperous journey, safe arrival and good report, caused a 
large increase, and the Massachusetts company in 1629 sent over 
about 300 more, "most servants." In the second general letter 
of instructions to Gov. Endicott and his council, dated London, 



DODGE FAMILY OF BEVERLY, MASS. 

The Dodge family, of Beverly, has found a very able historian 
in Mr. Joseph T. Dodge, of Madison, Wis., who has published a 
genealogy of the family comprised in two volumes. We are 
indebted to Mr. Dodge for the matter contained in this appendix, 
which relates to the Dodge family in general, and we have also 
been kindly permitted by him to use the following account, which 
appears in his work. 

In the course of the researches for the Dodge genealogy only 
two main branches of the Dodge family have been found, one 
descended from William or Eichard, of Beverly, Mass., and the 
other from Tristram Dodge. No connection has yet been discov- 
ered between the two branches except the identity of some of the 
names. 

At the time of the meeting of the Dodge Family at Salem, in 
1879, it was supposed by the author of the call that all the Dodges 
in the United States were descended from either William or his 
brother Eichard, but his later investigations led him to abandon 
that opinion and to consider himself and a large body of others as 
descended from Tristram Dodge. 

Progress has also been made since the Salem meeting in learning 
the precise locality from which William and Eichard emigrated. 
From papers left by the late Capt. Fred L. Dodge, and now in the 
possession of the New Eng. Historic. Genealogical Society at 
Boston, it appears that in 1881 an examination was made of the 
parish register of East Coker, Somersetshire Eng. , with the result 
of finding the births of the children of Eichard and of his brother, 
Michael, which will be shown later in a proper place. It was also 
learned that Eichard Dodge in 1633 was duly admitted tenant, by 
entry-hold, of lands in Helyar manor, East Coker; that the manor 
of East Coker came into possession of a Devonshire family named 
Helyar, about 1616, and that said family still resided there; that 
Eichard Dodge went to East Coker from St. Badeaux, Devonshire, 
about 4 miles from Plymouth, about the year 1616. Close exam- 
ination of the parish register of East Coker did not show the name 
of William Dodge, brother of Eichard. 

In Vol. 44, p. 297 of the 1ST. Eng. Hist, and Genealogic. Eegis- 
ter for 1890, in Genealogical Gleanings in England, by Henry F. 
Waters, A.M., is found the following abstract of the will of "John 
Dodge of Middlechinnock, [Eng.] 2 April, 1635, proved 15 Octo-

of Eichard Dodge are much more numerous than those of William, 
as might be expected, since the latter left but two sons while Eich- 
ard left five. 

Eichard for a short time lived on land belonging to his brother. 
He was received as an inhabitant 29th October, 1638, was granted 
by the town of Salem, 12th November, 1638, ten acres of la»d, and 
26th of November, 1638, the undivided half of eighty acres more, 
the other half being granted to his brother William. This last 
tract was on the east end of Conant's, John Woodberry's and 
John Balch's farms, whereof twelve acres were meadow. The 3d 
of December, 1641, the town granted to Eichard forty acres more, 
making ninety in all. He was received into the church at Salem, 
5th May, 1644. In 1667 he was one of the founders of the First 
Church, now of Beverly. Eichard died in Beverly 15th June, 
1671, leaving a will, by which it appears he left a brother Michael 
in England, and that Michael was to pay him £4 per annum for 
land which Eichard either owned or had an interest in. The will 
of Eichard, in connection with the will of his father, John Dodge, 
lately found in Somerset House, London, renders the origin of the 
Salem Dodges very certain. It is also shown by deeds recorded in 
Eegister's office of Essex County, vol. xi, p. 231 and vol. viii, p. 
163, that William Dodge, senior, had a nephew William Dodge 
(Coker William, or William of Coker, son of Michael), to whom, 
by a deed dated 12th May, 1685, he gave "16 acres taken fiomniy 
home farm next to the south end of Brimble Hill" (on which 
Beverly reservoir now stands) . On the same date he also imposed 
upon his son, Capt. William Dodge, of Beverly, the duty of 
paying "to my brother, if he come to New England and dwell in 
this town Beverly, £5 per annum, so long as he shall dwell here." 
This refers unmistakably to a brother then in England, and 
probably to Michael, who was then no doubt his only brother, 
Eichard having died in 1671. In 1692 Coker William still claimed 
that William Dodge, senior, had promised to give him ten acres 
of land, but William Dodge, senior, being dead, and the land 
being in the hands of his eldest son, known as Capt. John Dodge, 
the son honored the memory and good name of his father by 
giving the claimant five acres. This William Dodge, son of 
Michael, called also William secundus, in deeds, married Eliza- 
beth, daughter of Eoger Hascoll in Beverly, and is said to have 
had two sons and five daughters, among them a Mighill and a 
Margery. On the 20th February, 1696-7, he and his wife Eliza- 
beth conveyed to Joseph Herrick, probably the son-in-law of Capt. 
William Dodge, "for £70-6s. in silver," one parcel of land in 
Beverly, containing five acres more or less, "with my dwelling 
house thereon," and another parcel in Beverly, containing ten 
acres more or less. After this conveyance, the name of William of 
Coker is not found in the records of Essex County.

28 May, 1629, the secretary states that Mr. White [Eev. John] 
desired the following to be recommended to your care, viz. : 

"That you would show all lawful favor and respect unto the planters 
that come over in the Lion's Whelp, out of the counties of Dorset and 
Somerset; that you would appoint unto William Dodge, a skilful and 
painful husbandman, the charge of a team of horses, to appoint Hugh 
Tilly and William Edes for servants to Sir Richard Saltonstall, to give 
approbation and furtherance to Francis Webb in setting up his saw-mill 
[Webb had subscribed £50, and was, therefore, one of the "adventurers"], 
and to take notice that all other persons sent over by Mr. White are 
servants of the company." 

The Talbot, a vessel of 300 tons, and the "Lion's Whelp, a neat 
and nimble ship of 120 tons, ' ' having taken on their supplies while 
lying iu the Thames left Gravesend, 25 April, 1629, and reached 
Yarmouth, on the Isle of Wight on the 8th of May. Eev. Francis 
Higginson, who was on the Talbot, kept a journal of the voyage, 
which has been preserved. According to his journal the Lion's 
Whelp had on board "over 40 planters specially from Dorchester 
and other places thereabouts," many mariners, 8 pieces of ordi- 
nance, provision and four goats. Both vessels sailed from Yar- 
mouth May 11th, 1629, and arrived at Salem 29 June. 

From the above we have the origin and arrival of the first of the 
name of Dodge in America. 

William settled in that part now called Beverly, but, until 1668, 
a part of Salem and known as Bass River-side; being separated 
from Salem proper by the Bay. Tradition says that he was tall, 
with black hair and dark complexion, and that he returned to 
Lancashire (doubtful) where he married, and returned to Salem 
with his brothers Bichard and John. Tradition is not distin- 
guished for accuracy, and in this case it is possible that he 
returned to England to be married, but we find no trace of Bichard 
in Salem till 1638, and the John of tradition is undoubtedly John 
the son of Bichard, born in 1631, who, of course, came with his 
father. 

William Dodge became "freeman" 17th April, 1637, and received 
a grant of 60 acres of land next to John Woodbury's, 3rd Septem- 
ber, 1637. He bought for £40, 28th July, 1644, 200 acres, "late 
the property of Peter Palfry," near the head of Bass River, being 
a part of the Old Planters' tract, which, on the 25th January, 
1635, the town of Salem granted to Peter Palfry, John Balch, 
William Trask, John Woodberry and Roger Conant, 200 acres 
each, the whole being 124 rods by about 1,290. These grantees 
were all settlers before Gov. Endicott's arrival, and hence were 
called Old Planters. 

The fact that William Dodge came to Salem nine years earlier 
than Richard gave him more prominence in the community, but 
the same fact implies a greater degree of enterprise, if not ability, 
than was shown by the act of following where another had led the 
way. Hence, William has sometimes been called the father of all 
the Dodges. The records, however, indicate that the descendants
