PREFACE 

The compilation of the Olmsted Genealogy has covered a period of 
over forty years. The early portion of the correspondence of Dr. Henry 
K. Olmsted with members of the family, relative to this enterprise, dates 
back as far as 1870. From that period on, to the time of Dr. Olmsted's death, 
he labored incessantly upon this project, as the bulk of his correspondence 
amply proves. In later years the material gathered by Dr. Olmsted was 
put into the hands of RoUin H. Cooke, Esq., of Pittsfield, Mass., through 
whose efforts the work was somewhat enlarged. Mr. Cooke's lamented 
death left the MSS. still incomplete, and needing revision. At the request 
of Prof. Everett Ward Olmsted and the daughters of Dr. H. K. Olmsted, 
the present compiler, Rev. Geo. K. Ward, of New York City, assumed charge 
of the project, which is now carried to completion. 

The Olmsted Genealogy is essentially an " Olmsted " volume, having 
a larger proportion of descendants of the Olmsted name than is usual in 
works of this character. This is easily accounted for by the indefatigable 
labor of Dr. H. K. Olmsted, which covered a period of over a quarter of a 
century. Since the death of Dr. Olmsted, in 1896, the family has increased 
so rapidly, that the names subsequently received represent fully one quarter of 
the volume. The collateral branches are carried down in many instances to 
the present date. It is hoped that the volume may reach so large a number 
of descendants not included, that a second edition will be required in the near 
future, and to this end the compiler will be glad to correspond with any 
families of the line who are not represented. The intense interest mani- 
fested in this project from its inception, proves beyond question the loyalty 
of the family to the Olmsted name and traditions, and is a sure guarantee 
of its success. 

In prosecuting this work, the compiler has been greatly aided by the 
President of the Olmsted Family Association, the members of the Advisory 
Committee, and many others whose names cannot be here included. Mention 
should be made, however, of the hearty co-operation of Hon. Marlin E. Olm- 
sted, of Harrisburg, Pa., First Vice-President; Mrs. Frederick Law Olmsted, 
of Brookline, Mass. ; Miss Fannie M. Olmsted, of Hartford, Conn.; Mr. John 
B. Olmsted, of Bxiffalo, N. Y., and Mr. Frederick S. Hammond, of Syracuse, 
N. Y. The compiler is especially indebted to Prof. Everett Ward Olmsted, 
of Ithaca, N. Y.; Mrs. Henry S. Stearns, and Mrs. John M. Holcombe, of 
Hartford, Conn., for much of the information relating to James, Nicholas, 
and Richard Olmsted, the early founders of the family in America. 
Valuable data have also been furnished by a large number of descend- 
ants, to whom the thanks of the compiler are due. It is a matter 
of regret that so comparatively small a number of descendants have 
responded to the call for family portraits. In the event of the pub- 
lishing of a second edition, however, the opportunity will be afforded for greater 
activity in this respect, and the descendants are earnestly requested to bear 
this in mind, in anticipation of a later edition. 

There are many Olmsted families scattered throughout the country 
whose connection with the Hartford settlers has not been established. Some 
of these will be found in their appropriate place in this volume and a constant 
effort will be made, by correspondence and research, to bring them within the 
family line. It remains only for the compiler to request that those who come 
into possession of the Olmsted Genealogy endeavor to make known its 
existence to all who, by reason of family ties, might be interested in the volume. 



INTRODUCTION 

EXPLANATORY 

The reference system adopted in the Genealogy s the simplest that 
has been found practicable, viz., the designation of each name by a single 
number, strictly adhered to throughout. The inquirer has only to turn to 
the index, find the number of the page upon which the desired name occurs, 
and then trace it out in the body of the work. Where the name represents 
the head of a family, marked +, the facts regarding that family will be found 
upon a subsequent page under the same name in brackets. 

THE ORTHOGRAPHY OF THE FAMILY NAME 

It will be noted that with a few exceptions the famUy name is spelled 
throughout the volume, " Olmsted." This method is observed for the sake 
of uniformity, and following the custom generally approved by genealogists, 
i. e., of using the name as most commonly spelled by descendants, as the estab- 
lished name in the Genealogy. The compiler makes haste, however, to 
explain that in many instances his correspondents include the " a " in the 
1 ast syllable of the name and a number of these favoring the orthography to 
which they are accustomed have written to ask why the " Olmsted " form is in- 
variably used in the volume. As suggested above, the use of the two forms 
would create confusion and mar the symmetry of the record. A similar 
situation obtains in the orthography of other family names. The name 
" Osborn," which is the one used in the Osborn Genealogy, is also spelled^ 
Osborne and Osburn. The name Reed is also spelled Reid, Read and Reade. 
In both the above cases, the bearers of the name were no doubt originally 
of the same family. A great many other similar cases might be noticed, 
but they will undoubtedly occur at once to the reader, so they are not here 
mentioned. As to the Olmsted name, it appears under a great many different 
forms both in this country and abroad, as witness the following: Almesteda, 
Elmsted, Elmstead, Hamstead, Hampstead, Hampstede, Hamsted, Hemp- 
sted, Hempstede, Holmestead, Holmested, Holmestede, Holmstead, Holm- 
steade, Holmsted, Holmstedd, Holmystede, Homestead, Hompstead, Homp- 
sted, Hompstede, Hownsted, Olmested, Olmestede, Olmsted, Olmstead, 
Olmsteed, Olmstedd, Ownsted, Umsted, Umstede. 

The compiler disavows the intention even to suggest any change in the 
method of spelling the name to which the individual descendants are ac- 
customed. 

THE FIRST MENTION OF THE FAMILY NAME 

The earliest mention of the family name occurs in "Doomsday Book" for 
the County of Essex, in the survey made under William the Conqueror, in 
1086. It appears as follows under "The Land of Suen of Essex" and the 
"Hundret of Tendringe": 

"Almesteda (Elmsted or Olmsted) was held by Robert Fitz Wimarc. Now 
Suen (holds it), and Siric' of him, as 1 manor and as 8 hides. Then 14 
villeins; now 13. Then 31 bordars; now 36. Then 6 serfs; now 1. Then 
3 ploughs on the demesne; now 4. Then 19 ploughs belonging to the men; 
now 18. (There is) wood (land) for 500 swine, 22 acres of meadow, and pas- 
ture for 60 sheep. Then as now {semper) 1 mill, and 1 saltpan. Then 3.

rounceys (runcini), and 18 beasts (animalia), and 30 swine, 150 sheep, 40 
goats, and 5 hives of bees; now 5 rounceys, 10 beasts, 32 swine, 190 sheep, 
80 goats, (and) 2 hives of bees. It was then worth 9 pounds; now 10." 
— The Victoria History of the Counties of England [Essex], Westminster, Archibald 
Constable & Co., p. 491. 

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE FAMILY NAME 

The parish of Ehnsted is in the Hundred of Tendring, Essex. Its name 
is Saxon, " Elm " and " sted," i. e., the place of Elms, as being remarkable 
for the growth of trees of that kind. In the record, it is written Almesteda 
and Enmested.— From Wright's "Essex," Vol. II., pp. 759-60. 

Holm: In local names in England is the Anglo-Saxon holm, i. e., water 
island, low ground by water. In Sweden and Denmark holm is a small island, 
as Stockholm, etc. — From E. A. Charnock, Local Etymology. Danish and Ger- 
man, holm, a small island; Swedish, holme; Icelandic, holmi., i. e., an island. 
Holm, a green plot of ground, environed by water, and just rising above it, 
hence, meadows, especially near rivers. These are to this day called Holmes, 
or Homes. — From Bosworth's Dictionary of the Saxon language. " The Icelandic 
is the same language as the old Danish. The Icelanders have retained the 
old Danish in such purity that it may still be considered the living language." 
— Bosworth. ^ 

THE OLMSTED COAT OF ARMS 

The Arms which appear in this volume are recorded as being borne by 
one Richard Olmsted, a man of some social standing, and his connection with 
the immigrants, James and Richard, is pretty well estabUshed. They were 
found in the study of the Rector of Dimmington, born abt. 1580, who was a 
native of Felsted, Essex County, England, the headquarters of the Olmsteds, 
after they disappear from Olmsted Hall. 

Another Olmsted Coat of Arms is that of John Olmsted, of Stansted 
Hall, in Halsted, County Essex. He was Master of the Horse to the Earl of 
Oxford, A. D., 1518. 

S. 3 horses' heads erased. Bits, reins and tassels, arg. ; canton, ermine. 

Still another is that which is described as follows: " The arms of the 
Olmsted Family are described by James Usher, who painted them, and 
gathered a part of his information through his London agent from the College 
of Heraldry in that city, and also from the collections of John Coles, who 
flourished as a Heraldic writer and collector of arms, at or near Hartford, 
Conn., about the year 1785, as follows: Ermine on a fesse, gules. Three 
towers, argent. Crest, a Tower, sable. Issuing therefrom, a lion's head, 
argent. Motto, ' Bes vivit que bene.' ' He lives twice who lives well.' 

" Ermine signifies white, dotted with black figiures. It is an emblem of 
unsullied honor, and indicates that the original bearer of the arms held high 
judicial position. The towers indicate that some bearer of the arms was in 
command of a Fortress. The lion's head is used in arms to denote bravery, 
magnanimity and strength. The fesse indicates the belt of a Knight. In 
heraldic language gules means red and is an emblem of courage; argent 
means silver and is an emblem of purity; sable means black and is an emblem 
of antiquity." It is well to call attention to the fact that the motto, used 
with coats of arms, is not an essential part of the insignia, the bearers being 
at liberty to select such motto as may suit their own taste.

EXTRACTS FROM WALKS AND TALKS OF AN AMERICAN 

FARMER IN ENGLAND— FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED, 1850 

(Edition of 1858, p. 349) 

While in London I was one day visiting a library when the friend who 
conducted me called my attention to a series of shelves, saying, " Here are 
topographical and genealogical records, arranged under the head of counties — 
is yours an English name? I have never seen it in England." 

" Yes, I believe it is, at least our family came to America from England." 

" From what part, do you know? " 

" Essex, I have heard it said." 

" When? " said he, taking down a book. 

" 1630 to 1640." 

" Yes, here it is, ' Manor of Olmsted in Bumpsted-Hetion, a moated 
Hall. Maurice de Olmestede, and so forth; passed out of the family (name) 
early in the fifteenth century; now belongs to Queen's College, Cambridge.' 
Where is the ordinance map of Essex? Here. Let's see. Olmsted Hall only 
about six miles from a station. Better go out there and see it, hadn't you? 
You can do it in half a day easily enough." 

The next day I went, travelling half an hour by rail and then taking a 
chaise which by a drive of six miles brought me to a small village, with a small 
ruinous church in a very ancient graveyard. I enquired for the parish clerk 
and found him a cobbler, at his work. The records were locked up and the 
curate was away. " Did anyone live hereabout of the name of Olmsted?" 
" No." " Did he ever know anyone of that name? " " No, no man. There 
was the old hall farm— Olmsted Hall, they called it." " Why? " He did not 
know. I asked to be directed to it and found it difficult of access, by narrow 
parish roads and farm lanes. 

It proved to be a large, low and very commonplace sort of farmhouse 
of stone (or plaster) in the midst of a level wheat farm of some 200 acres. The 
family of the present tenant had occupied it for several generations. They 
received me kindly and, when I told them my name, with some little excitement 
and manifestation of respect, as though I had rights in the house. " Come 
into the old Hall, sir," they said, taking me to the largest room — a low room 
about 20 feet by 20, with a single low window nearly occupying one side and a 
monstrous old fireplace, now bricked up for a coal grate. 

" Why do you call it the Hall? " 

" It always was called so. I suppose it's because they used to hold Courts 
here, sir. The house used to be moated all round, but they filled up the moat 
in front when the lane was built; that was in my father's time." 

The moat still remained around the garden, or deep ditch, on which grew 
an old hedge. At one corner of the house was an old yew tree, certainly 
several hundred years old. This house, as a matter of record, was occupied 



Introduction ix 

by the Olmsteds more than two hundred years before the Puritan emigration. 
After that period I found nothing of them in England. 

I have given this account because the incident is so characteristic of an 
American's visit to England, as well as because it shows what an historic 
interest may attach to any old farmhouse in England.

Olmsted Hall stands in the most northern part of the Parish of Bumsted- 
Helion near Castle Camps and Ashdon (Cambridgeshire) in which two parishes 
the lands belonging to it do chiefly lie . . . the house is very ancient and 
moated round; it was originally of the De Veres lordship of Bumsted Hall 
and was holden under them by the Olmsteds, namely, by Martin de Olmestede 
who gave lands to the fraternity of the Knights Templar at Little Maple- 
stead (a Feodar: Com: Oxon). Maurice de Olmestede held it in 28th Henry 
III. (1242). William, his son, temp: Edward I., and John de Olmestede 4th 
Edward II., (1311) leaving it to his son and heir, William. 

P. 70. It belonged afterward to William Skrene (of Writtle and Clif- 
ford's Inn) constituted Sergeant-at-law 10th Henry V. (1410). His descend- 
ant, Sir John Skrene, died in 1471. The heir of Sir John Skrene was John 
Clark who descended from Catherine, sister to William Skrene. In 1474 John 
Cornyshe, Wm. Dayton and Thomas Garthe released to William, Lord 
Hastings, all those manors which were lately the estate of Sir John Skrene. 
Lord Hastings was beheaded and his property confiscated in 1480, about 
which time Elizabeth Woodville, Queen of Edward IV., was endowing, as 
second Patroness, Queen's College, Cambridge.* 

Pp. 278-9. Edward, Lord Windsor, had in right of his wife, Catherine 
(daughter of John de Vere, 16th Earl of Oxford by his 1st wife, Dorothy) a 
moiety of the manors of Horsdens, Caxton and Pentlow, which he sold 17 Nov., 

1564, to Edward Felton, of Pentlow Hall, Esq., who, the next year, 1st June, 

1565, sold it to John Holmested of Bumsted-Helion, Esq., who also purchased 
28th Nov., or 10th Dec, 1571, the other moiety of John Scudamore, Esq. On 
the 4th April, 1575, John Holmested sold the manor of Dynes to Wm. Deane, 
Esq., and the manors of Horsdens and Caxton to William Alston. And 
Peter Palmer by deed dated 10th Dec, 1583, confirmed all knight's fee, etc., 
to Edward, son of William Alston, Esq. 

P. 256. John Holmested or Olmested, Esq., bought for £1120 the site 
and Mansion House of Stansted Hall, 12th Oct., 1576. 

This John Holmested was of an ancient family of Olmsted Hall. He 
was Master of the Horse to the Earl of Oxford at Castle Hedingham. His 
daughter Agnes brought this estate in marriage to Thomas French of Halsted, 
who lived at Stansted Hall. 

Another portion of the Manor of Stansted Hall, Halsted, County Essex, 
was in the hands of Sir William Waldegrave,t of Smallbridge, County Sussex, 
28th Oct., 1566. 



*When Bishop Niles of New Hampshire (whose wife was an Olmsted of Hartford) 
was visiting the then Bursar of the College, he was told that the vegetables on the 
dinner table came from Olmsted Hall.

X Olmsted Family Genealogy 

THE RESULT OF THE SEARCH FOR THE ANCESTORS OF JAMES 
OLMSTED, SET ON FOOT BY FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED* 

Mr. Briggs of London was employed in 1890 to search all available 
records in order to ascertain the birthplace of the family of the Olmsteds who 
came to New England in 1632. They were members of the Rev. Thomas 
Hooker's congregation, commonly known as the Braintree Colony, which 
fact pointed to County Essex. The distinguished genealogist, Mr. Henry M. 
Waters, most kindly gave Mr. Briggs a copy of a portion of two parish regis- 
ters, one of Fairsted, County Essex, the other of Great Leighs, in the same 
county. The Fairsted register, given below, proved to contain the record of 
the baptism of the children of one James Olmsted, the record of the burials 
of several of his children, and of that of his wife, Joyce. This, without any 
doubt, is the record of the Family of the James Olmsted who emigrated to 
New England in 1632. Mr. Waters also found, in the adjoining parish of 
Great Leighs, the record of one James Olmsted, who married in 1576 Jane 
Bristow, and had baptized in that parish eleven children. The second son, 
Richard, was baptized 22d March, 1578-9. James, the third son, was bap- 
tized 4th December, 1580, and married 26th October, 1605, Joyce Cornish. 
In Great Leighs two of his children were baptized and in Fairsted the five 
others. 

Mr. Briggs searched in Somerset House for all the wills under the name 
of Olmsted and found among a great number of others that of James, the father 
of James Olmsted, the emigrant, and grandfather of Richard, John and Re- 
becca, and of Nicholas and Nehemiah — all of whom came to New England 
in the " Lyon " in 1632. 

He then proceeded to search the Subsidy Rolls. He found that James 
Olmsted who married Jane Bristow had belonged in the neighboring parish 
of Great Waltham, and that his father, James, had married there one Alice 
(family name not found, but presumably either Hawkyns or Sorell). The 
fourth payment of the subsidy (due 3d year Edward VI.) was not collected 
till the 6th year of Edward VI. (1552-3) and in the return then made " the 
widowe Holmestede " is found in the parish of Great Waltham " in the place 
of James," showing plainly that he had died in the interval between 1550 
and 1553. It seems to be proved that James and Alice were the parents 
of the James who lived at Great Leighs, and died in 1595, and grandparents 
of James, the emigrant. The Sorells and Hawkynses mentioned in the will 
of " Als," below, both lived near James in Great Waltham. While the name 
of William Olmsted is met with in the Rolls as owning lands in Felsted, thus 
confirming the statement in the Harleian MSS., No. 6071, f. 319, British 
Museum (given herewith) that the family of Olmsted, whose original seat was 
Olmsted Hall, County Essex, had a branch established in Felsted. All the 
above mentioned parishes are very near together. Some of the property 
was freehold and some leasehold. Farther back than James — ^born probably 
in 1520 — it has not been possible to go with certaintyt but there is every 
probability that James, born in 1520, descended from one Richard Olmestede 

*Toward thd expenses of the search, running over many years before Mr. Waters 
set us right, Vice-President Marlin E. Olmsted, of Philadelphia, contributed $25, Rt. 
Rev. Charles T Olmsted, of Utica, $10, and Mrs. Kate O. Beebe, a daughter of John 
Olmsted, of Springfield, $10. 

tThere is mention in the rolls of one James Olmsted, at Braintree, and Beatrice, 
his wife, who may have been the parents of the James who married Alice.

Felsted, who brought a suit for the recovery of money due him from one 
Bartholomew Barber, thus bringing the record near to the time when the 
" Hall " passed from the name of Olmsted. It might be possible to find 
soniething in the Manor Rolls of the Earls of Oxford, if they exist for the 
period, also in the Feet of Fines, relating to the transfer of lands in all parts 
of the country.

Introduction xv 

Remarks on the Foregoing Copy of the Harleian MSS. 

The Holmestead or Olmestede family have not been found in Lancashire, 
but they did occupy lands belonging to the Duchy of Lancaster, i. e., Crown 
lands, in Essex. 

There is no Felsted Grange, but Felsted Barton formed part of the pos- 
sessions of " Sion " alienated to Richard Rich, 17th March, 1537. 

Nicholas. There is a will recorded of a Nicholas Olmstede, 1578. 

James, supposed to be the ancestor of the emigrant. 

John Holmestead of Hawsted (Halsted) was master of the horse to Ed- 
ward, 17th Earl of Oxford, called the "Spendthrift," and speculated largely in 
the lands which that nobleman alienated. John Olmestede had three daughters. 

Richard Holmested was the son of William Holmested, of St. Lawrence, 
County Essex. His wife's father, John Hawes, was also of St. Lawrence. 
Will of John Hawes is dated August 7, 1613, (see p. xiii). 

Thomas Holmested, minister at Kelvedon, was the son of John Olmsted 
of Felsted and Elizabeth Roo, his wife. His grandfather was William of 
Felsted. He leaves in his will, 1647, property situated in Felsted to brothers 
and kinsmen and nieces in Sawbrideworth, County Herts. 



EXTRACT FROM AN ADDRESS OF WELCOME 

By Prof. Everett Ward Olmsted, President of the Olmsted Family Associ- 
ation, Delivered at E. Hartford, Conn., June 20, 1912 

In the northern part of the Parish of Bumpsted-Helion, in the County of 
Essex, England, stands a long, low, and very ancient house of stone and 
plaster, once moated round. This venerable manor, Olmsted Hall, now in 
the possession of Queen's College, Cambridge, is the oldest edifice in existence 
with which our family name is connected. It was originally held by one 
Martin of Olmsted, under the lordship of the famous de Vere family. In 
1242 it was in the possession of Maurice of Olmsted. And so it passed down 
from father to son for several generations. 

By the early part of the fifteenth century, however, it had already passed 
out of the possession of those of the name into that of a knightly family called 
Skrene. Whether this was a family related by marriage with the house of 
Olmsted or not, it has been impossible to determine. It is not unlikely to 
have been the case, however. At all events, in 1474, this manor, together 
with other estates, came into the ownership of Wm. Lord Hastings, and nine 
years later, when he was beheaded and his property confiscated, Olmsted Hall 
passed into the hands of Elizabeth Woodville, widow of Edward IV, who was 
then endowing as second patroness Queen's College, Cambridge. 

Such, briefly, is the history of the old Hall as far as we know it. But 
what were the Olmsteds doing all this time since their ownership of the Hall 
had lapsed ? Are we to imagine that the family was extinct or inactive ? 
By no means. 

As their over-lords, the illustrious de Veres, were engaged about this 
time in the Wars of the Roses, in support of the Lancastrian cause, and as the 
Olmsteds of later generations have given ample proof of their courage and 



xvi Olmsted Family Genealogy 

fondness for adventure, it is safe to surmise that some of our ancestors, at 
least, rallied under the de Vere star round the banners of the red rose. 

These were troublous times in England, but the private fortunes of the 
Olmsteds were not entirely undermined by the affairs of state, for m 1565 we 
find one, John Olmsted of Bumpsted-Helion, purchasing the manors of Hors- 
dens, Caxton and Pentlow, formerly the property of Edward, Lord Wmdsor by 
right of his wife, Catherine, daughter of John de Vere. And in 1576 we find 
this same John Olmsted, Master of the Horse to the Earl of Oxford at Castle 
Hedingham, making another purchase of considerable importance, that of the 
site and mansion house of Stansted Hall. This John Olmsted, called the 
" Spendthrift," was not one of our lineal ancestors, as he left only daughters, 
but he was one of the blood, and his traits are not as yet extinct, I understand. 

As to our direct ancestors, we have been able, by the aid of the church 
records of Fairsted and of Great Leighs, to trace descent, with a reasonable 
degree of accuracy, from one, Richard Olmsted, born about 1430, whose de- 
scendant James married Alice and had three sons, of whom James, Jr., born 
about 1550, by his wife Jane Bristow, was father of another James, the Colonist, 
and of Richard, the father of the three young emigrants who accompanied 
their Uncle James to New England, namely, Richard, John and Rebecca. 

The cause of the emigration of our Puritan forefathers from England to 
America is a matter of historical record, but it may not be amiss to recall the 
subject here. 

During the last half of the reign of Queen Elizabeth a great change had 
come oyer the people of England. As Green puts it, " England became the 
people of a book, and that book was the Bible." Even the love of pure let- 
ters of the Renaissance gave way to the love of this book. It was in every- 
body's home, and its influence upon the mind and conscience of the people 
was amazing. " A new conception of life and of man superseded the old." 
" Theology rules there," said Grotius, speaking of England .'shortly after 
Elizabeth's death. 

A certain gravity of demeanor disclosed itself even in the country gen- 
tlemen like our ancestors, whose diversions before this had been of the lighter 
sort, such as hawking, fencing and dancing. The brilliancy of dress of the 
Renaissance disappeared. A more sober vestment characterized the Puritans, 
and an increasing fondness for simplicity in all things, but especially in the 
forms of worship. Most of the Puritans were undesirous of separating them- 
selves from the Church of England, but they attempted to "purify" it from 
within, and to simplify its ritual, which reminded them of popery. They 
refused to wear the surplice, to baptize with the sign of the cross, to bow at the 
name of Jesus, to make use of the ring in the marriage ceremony, and to 
acknowledge the divine authority of the episcopate. 

Elizabeth had tried in vain to force her people into an acceptance of the 
church administration that she prescribed, and had gone so far as to execute 
certain non-conformists. 

Then came James, the hope of the Puritans, but, although educated as a 
Presbyterian, upon his accession to the throne he "renounced the Calvinistic 
sympathies he had cherished in Scotland," and turned a deaf ear to the pleas 
of his Puritan subjects. 

It was about this time that the Separatist congregation at Scrooby 
succeeded in leaving England, and settled for a brief while in Holland, whither 
a portion set sail for the New World in the Mayflower, landing at Plymouth, 
Dec. 21, 1620. 



Introduction xvii 

Meanwhile, the Puritans remaining in England had fallen upon bitter 
days, by the accession in 1625 of Charles I to the throne of his father. The 
new monarch's chief religious advisor was Wm. Laud, Bishop of London, 
and later Archbishop of Canterbury. This eminent but narrow-minded divine 
was a formalist by temperament and education. The crude simplicity of the 
reformed church was repugnant to him, and he determined to restore to the 
Church of England the pomp and ceremonial that he deemed was its rightful 
possession, as a branch of the great Catholic Church of the world. 

"Bowing to the altar was introduced into all cathedral churches." The 
communion table was given its pre-Reformation position in the chancel, 
instead of the position it had occupied for more than half a century in the middle 
of the nave. Most shocking of all to Puritan standards, diversions on the 
Sabbath day were not only encouraged by Laud and his supporters, but every 
English pastor was compelled by royal order to read from the pulpit a 
declaration in favor of Sunday pastimes. Refusal to comply with these 
and similar orders was met with fines, imprisonment, confiscation of property, 
and even execution. 

Such was the condition of affairs in 1630, when in the County of Essex, 
in the neighborhood of our Olmsted ancestors, the Reverend Mr. Thomas 
Hooker, a preacher of great ability and renown, was silenced for non-con- 
formity. To escape imprisonment and worse, he fled to Holland. Indeed, it 
was well that he fled, for he might have met the fate of another non-conformist 
minister who was that same year "pilloried, whipped, branded, slit in the nos- 
trils, and deprived by successive mutUation of his ears." 

Up to this time emigration to America had been slow, and the colony in 
New England numbered only some few hundred souls, but now the Puritan 
exodus began upon ah unprecedented scale. Two hundred Puritans had re- 
cently embarked for Salem. These were soon followed by eight hundred more 
under John Winthrop. These in turn were followed by seven hundred more. 
In all, seventeen ships had beaten their way across the seas before the close 
of the year 1630. " Nor were these emigrants," as Green declares, "like the 
earlier colonists of the South, 'broken men,' adventurers, bankrupts, criminals; 
or simply poor men and artisans, like the Pilgrim Fathers of the Mayflower. 
They were in great part men of the professional and middle classes; some of 
them men of large landed estate." 

Of the latter class was the family of our honored relative, James Olmsted, 
who, together with two sons, Nicholas and Nehemiah, two nephews, Richard 
and John, and a niece, Rebecca, arrived in New England, on the Lord's Day, 
Sept. 16, 1632, in the ship Lyon, under Capt. Pierce, after a voyage of 12 weeks 
from Braintree, England. There were 123 passengers, of whom 50 were 
children. 

" They settled first at Mount Wallaston, now Quincy, near Boston, but 
in the course of the year, 'by order of the Court,' they removed to Newtown , 
now Cambridge." 

" The recent settlers of Newtown," says Holmes, "had, while in England, 
attended the ministry of the Reverend Thomas Hooker, who, to escape fines 
and imprisonment for his non-conformity, had now fled into Holland." So, 
as Mather, another contemporary, remarks, " immediately after their settle- 
ment at Newtown, they expressed their earnest desires to Mr. Hooker that he 
would come over into New England and take the pastoral charge of them. At 
their desire he left Holland, and, having obtained Mr. Samuel Stone .... 



xviii Olmsted Family Genealogy 

as an assistant in the ministry, took his passage for America, and arrived at 
Boston, Sept. 4, 1633." 

He proceeded at once to Newtown, to take up the duties of his pastorate. 
There the Brain tree Colony, as it was termed, abode until the summer of 1636, 
when, dissatisfied by the form of government of the colony of Massachusetts 
and tempted by the charm of this pleasant Connecticut valley, of which they 
had heard reports,^ they "took their departure from Cambridge," and, in the 
words of Trumbull, "travelled more than a hundred miles through a 
hideous and trackless wilderness, to Hartford. They had no guide but their com- 
pass;jnade their way over mountains, through swamps, thickets, and rivers, 
which were not passable but with great difficulty. They had no cover but 
the heavens, nor any lodgings but those which simple nature afforded them. 
They drove with them a hundred and sixty head of cattle, and by the way, 
subsisted on the milk of their cows. Mrs. Hooker (wAo was ill) was borne 
through the wilderness upon a litter. The people generally carried their 
packs, arms, and some utensils. They w^re nearly a fortnight on their 
journey." 

This brings us in our narration of the wanderings of our worthy family to 
the beautiful city, near which we have met today to do them honor. The 
family was soon to separate. Indeed, my own ancestor, Richard Olmsted, 
who was a youth of 20 when he arrived in America with his Uncle James, 
was now a young man of 24. That he was married by 1640 is more than prob- 
able, for we find that by that date he had quit his uncle's house, and was in 
possession of a home lot of his own. The records show that at a town meeting 
on the 1 1th of January, 1640, a vote was passed, taking part of the lot of Richard 
Olmsted for a burial ground. " This is the groimd in the rear of the First 
Church buildings on Main Street," as Walker tells us, "where so many 
of Hartford's early dead still repose." It contains a monument to the early 
settlers of this city, and is worthy of a pilgrimage, if any of you have not yet 
seen it. James Olmsted's lot was on Front street, not far from where the gas 
works now stand. 

However, as I have said, the family was soon to part company. 
The wanderlust was upon them, and in 1651 Richard Olmsted, defying 
the dangers of wild beast and Indian, struck still deeper into the 
wilderness, and founded, with his family and with other friends, the town of 
Norwalk. 

There remains to me now only the pleasant duty of welcoming to this 
meeting you, my kinsmen and friends, who have deemed it worth while to 
check the busy looms of toil, and to ponder a little upon the courage, upon the 
devotion to principle, and upon the love of liberty that characterized our 
revered forefathers.^

in the summer of 1634 to investigate lands along the Connecticut River.

The Olmsted Christening Blanket 



FAMILY HEIRLOOMS 
THE OLMSTED CHRISTENING BLANKET 

By Miss Fannie M. Olmsted of Hartford, Conn. 

When James Olmsted in 1632, with a small company of kinsmen in a 
larger body of compatriots, turned, disheartened, from the civil and religious 
questions that vexed their country, to face at the age of fifty-two the unknown 
problems of her colonies in New England, he left a desolated home at Fairsted. 
In the God's Acre of that " fair place " slept his wife and four of their seven 
children. 

Mary, baptized AprU 18, 1621; the mother buried April 21st; the baby 
buried April 24th. The parish register tells this sorrowful chapter of the story; 
and if only for this one association it is easily understood why there was brought 
among the family possessions to the New World the christening blanket, or 
" bearing-cloth," such as was used at that time for infants upon ceremonial 
occasions. 

This interesting relic is still in existence, having been handed down from 
parent to child in the following direct line: — James* (d. 1640), Nicholas^ (d. 
1684), Joseph' (d. 1726), Joseph* (d. 1762), Joseph' (d. 1775), Simeon" (d, 
1803), Joseph' (d. 1861), Joseph, Jr., M.D.' (d. 1864). 

During later generations the merciless theology had softened, which 
prompted the baptism of children in church the Sunday after birth, and the 
last person for whom the " bearing-cloth " was used. Dr. Olmsted, was eight 
months old when carried on it to the First Congregational Church at Enfield, 
September 2, 1821, to be christened by the Rev. Francis Le Baron Robbins. 

The blanket is now in the possession of Dr. Olmsted's children. It is 
of yeUow satin damask, not unlike cloth-of-gold in effect, handsome in itself, 
but extremely trying to the infant complexion, which caused, perhaps, a fas- 
tidious parent to deny the present owners the honor of making their first 
church visitation in it. 

It measures 45 by 32 inches, there being two breadths of the narrowly 
woven fabric. A quilted lining once formed part of the garment, it is said, 
but long since some thrifty ancestress, more housewifely than antiquarian in 
taste, removed this moth-alluring feature, disclosing a seam " backstitched " 
with exquisite nicety along the red silk selvedge. 

Whose deft fingers fashioned it and what loom wove the rich textile we 
know not. Design and texture suggest the Orient, and it is most probable 
that a ship of the East India or the Turkey Company brought it from far-away 
Persia or Arabia or India or China, whence came so many luxuries to the 
English homes of that period. 

The parish registers of Lees Magna and Fairsted are rich in baptismal 
records of the family; a Christian lineage, we see, but here again the history 
of the bearing-cloth beyond the seas is conjectural. Fancy may have play in 
these matters, each dreamer for himself, the known facts are that by nine 
generations of the same name the relic has been treasured in a Connecticut 
home. 



XX Olmsted Family Genealogy 

The appraisers of James Olmsted's estate, John Steel and Edw. Stebbing, 
neighbors not only in the " New Towne " now called Hartford, but in that 
earlier " New Towne " which became Cambridge, note the item, " diuers 
smale things in a trunke," valued at £Z. Was it the trunk that " Grand- 
father Olmsted " kept for security imder the head of his bed, from which he 
used to take the christening blanket to show to favored visitors of an earlier 
generation than ours ? He was born May 14, 1776. His great-grandfather, 
the grandson of James, died but fourteen years before, and intervening genera- 
tions kept the story fresh. There was no chance in this direct and constantly 
overlapping succession for memory to distort the facts, however few details 
have been transmitted. 

Christening blankets similar to this are not unknown, but they are un- 
common. Governor Bradford's (1590) is still preserved, and occasionally 
one that has enwrapped babies destined for worthy, if less eminent careers, is 
found. The Olmsted blanket, however, is the only one known by the writer 
to have been so long in the possession of lineal descendants. By them it has 
been treasured in memory of an ancestor whose name is on the Founders' 
Monument in Hartford's Ancient Cemetery, and whose earlier home was on 
the present site of Harvard University. Thence, after passing a few years 
peculiarly honored and trusted by the little community, James Olmsted 
preceded his pastor and near neighbor, the Rev. Thomas Hooker, to the 
Connecticut Valley, where the christening blanket has been at home for over 
two hundred and seventy-five years. 



THE OLMSTED TANKARD 

Scarcely less interesting than the Olmsted Christening Blanket is the 
Olmsted Tankard, which is said to have been brought over also from England 
in the good ship " Lyon " in 1632, and which is held to be the " one woodden 
cuppe " mentioned in the inventory of the estate of James Olmsted. It is 
now in the possession of his descendant, Mr. Ralph Wm. Cutler, of Hartford, 
Conn. It is made of white cedar, with handle and cover of white pine and 
hoops of split willow. 

Such tankards were occasionally brought to America by the early colonists, 
but only a few of them are still in existence. For its age, its unusual beauty 
of outline, and the memories that attach to this old cedar " cuppe," from 
which the Olmsteds may have drunk to the success of their quest for liberty 
in a new land, before setting out from their English home, we prize the Olmsted 
Tankard.

On the cover of the volume containing the earliest of such records yet dis- 
covered, is this inscription: —

(There follow 33 names of men. Among them is) 
James Olmstedd 
From the New England Hist. & Genealogical Register. Vol. XIV, pp. 300-301. 

The family were Puritans, and James Olmsted came to New England 
with two sons, two nephews and a niece, in the ship Lyon, Capt. Pierce, which 
arrived at Boston, Mass., on the Lord's Day, Sept. 16, 1632, with 123 passen- 
gers, of whom 50 were children, after a voyage of 12 weeks from Braintree, 
England. 

They settled first at Mount WoUaston, now Quincy, near Boston, but 
in the course of the year, " by order of the Court they removed to New Town, 
now Cambridge, where James Olmsted had his house lot on the northerly 
side of Harvard St., upon or near the spot occupied by what has long been 
known as the ' President's House,' now called the Wadsworth House. This 
was the second piece of land acquired by Harvard College. 

" James Olmsted was made a freeman Nov. 6, 1632, and was chosen 
Constable by a popular vote (the first one so chosen) Nov. 3, 1634. At a 
general meeting of the whole town, Feb. 3, 1634-5, it was agreed upon by a 
joint consent that seven men should be chosen to do the whole business of 
the town, and so continue until the first Monday in November next, and until 
new men be chosen in their room; so there were then chosen John Haynes, 
Symon Bradstreat, John Taylcott, William Westwood, John White, William 
Wadsworth and James Olmsted. Also there was chosen to join (with) James 
Olmsted, Constable, John Benjamin, Daniel Denison, Andrew Warner and 



6 Olmsted Family Genealogy 

William Spencer, which five according to the order of Court (shall) survey 
the town lands and enter the same in a Book appointed for that purpose. 
It is further ordered that these five men (shall) meet every first Monday in 
the month at the Constable's house in the forenoon at the ringing of the 
bell." 

The Braintree Colony, as they were called, after estabUshing themselves 
at Cambridge, wrote to Rev. Mr. Hooker in Holland, expressing their earnest 
desire that he would come over and take the pastoral charge of them. He, 
in compliance, came, landing in Boston Sept. 4, 1633, bringing with him as 
assistant Samuel Stone, and on the 1 1th of October he became their pastor. 

" Being straightened for room they decided to move, and in the summer 
of 1634 twelve men from the town in the Bay were despatched to examine 
the lands on the Conn. River, then called the Fresh River. They were called 
adventurers, and were the earliest immigrants to Hartford." James Olmsted 
was one of the company. 

Their report being favorable, " they resolved to begin several plantations 
there. On the 15th of Oct., 1635, about 60 men, women and children went 
by land towards Connecticut with their cows, horses and swine. They arrived 
on the banks of the river at Hartford, October 29, 1635, O. S., Nov. 9, N. S. 
Scarcely had they reached the place of their destination before the winter 
was upon them in great severity. Their Vessels in which they had embarked 
their furniture and provisions had either been wrecked on the coast, or were 
frozen in at the mouth of the river. Soon famine began to stare them in the 
face, and to save their lives the greater part of the settlers were obliged, in 
the depth of winter, to make their way through the wilderness, or around the 
coast by water to Massachusetts. The sufferings of the few that remained 
were extreme. The winter was one of great severity, and after all they could 
obtain by hunting, and from the Indians, they were obliged to subsist on 
acorns, malt and grains." 

On the 31st of May, 1636, Thomas Hooker and his entire flock of about 
100 souls took their departure from Newtown. They were a fortnight on the 
way through the wilderness. 

James Olmsted was one of the original proprietors of Hartford, and in 
the Land distribution of June, 1639, he received 70 acres. That he was a 
man highly considered in the community in which he lived is evident from 
the prominence that his name occupies in the old list of the " Original and 
early members (1633-1639)" of the first church of Hartford, in which list his 
name comes twelfth, and in such illustrious company as follows: Gov. John 
Haynes, Gov. George Wyllys, Gov. Edward Hopkins, Gov. Thomas Wells, 
Gov. John Webster, Rev. Thomas Hooker, Rev. Samuel Stone, Elder William 
Goodwin, Major William Whiting, Hon. Matthew Allyn, Hon. John Talcott, 
James Olmsted. 

In the Town Records, Mar. 25, 1640, " it is further ordered that James 
Olmsted and William Wadsworth shall view the place Nathaniel Richards 
desires for to set on; and if they see cause, to sett out a place for him." 

James Olmsted's house lot was on the road from Little River to the North 
Meadow. It was the main road from Windsor to Wethersfield, now Front 
street. The house which James or his son Nicholas built on this lot was 
standing until about 1835. There are now three brick houses on the lot, 
not far from the gas works. He d. in Sept. or Oct., 1640, in Hartford. 



First Generation 7 

The Rev. Thomas Hooker mentions in a letter the death of James Olm- 
sted: " Slept sweetly in the Lord, having carried himself gratiously in his 
sickness." 

From the will of James Olmsted an intimation is to be gathered that he 
died after a very short and severe illness, during which illness his will was 
made. After the death of his wife in England, he appears not to have 
married again, as no mention is made of a wife in his will, nor is mention 
made of any othSr children than Nicholas and Nehemiah. Among the 
legatees there appears the name of Rebecca Olmsted, a niece who lived with 
him at the time of his death, and who, says James Savage of Boston, came 
over with him. To her is left a small sum that had probably been held by 
him in trust. In an appendix to his will, two kinsmen are named, who, says 
Hawley Olmsted, were doubtless nephews of James 1st. Mr. Savage also so 
regards them, and advances the conjecture that they also came over the 
water with their uncle. The names of these kinsmen or nephews were 
Richard and John Olmsted. 

The Last Will and Testament of James Olmstead 
Late of Hartford, decesed.' 
This is my wyll, to giue my Estate betweene my two sonns, that is to say, 
the on halfe to my sonn Nicholas, and the other halfe to my sonne Nehemiah, 
equally deuyded betweene the both, w"" this reseruation, that if my brother 
Lumus doe make his word good to make my sonne Nicholis wifes portion as 
good as any child he hath, for so I vnderstand his p^'mise is, but if he shall 
refuse so to doe, I shall then refuse to giue my sonn any p'te of my moueable 
goods, cattell or debts, but my will is to leaue the thing w'*" Richard Webb 
and William Wodsworth to see my Brother Lumus doe p''forme his p''mise, 
and as the said Richard Webb and Will' Wodsworth shall doe I shall be con- 
tent. And if my Brother Lumis doe p'forme his p''mise, then my will is their

to my Cossen Rebeca Olmstead that now dwelleth w"" me, and he shall pay

be in their power ether to giue her the tenn pownd or to deteyne yt fro her. 
I doe giue my searuant Will' Corby fine pownd, to be paid when his tyme coms

And I doe will that Will' Corby doe searue his tyme w"' my sonne Nehemiah. 
And I leaue my sonne Nehemiah w'" Richard Webb and Will' Wodsworth, 
intreating the to haue the ouer sight of him, and the disposeing of him as their 
owne child. But if my sonne Nehemiah shall goe contrary in bestowing him- 
self e any way contrary to the judgement of my two frinds. Rich: Webb and 
Will' Wodsworth, then yt shall be in their power to comaund and take a hun- 
dred pownd of his Estate, and dispose of yt as they thinke fitt. I giue to my

and a marke to be paid equally betwixt the, and my two sonns shall pay the, 
the one pay the one halfe and the other pay the other halfe.

Nicholas Olmstead 

Will' Wadsworth Nehemiah Olmsted 

" This codicil shows that James Olmsted's illness was a sudden one, and 
that between himself and his sons there existed so close an affection and sym- 
pathy that after his death they gave bequests to his kinsmen and church as 
they felt he would have done, and so honorably dealt with the disposition of 
their inheritance, though not legally bound so to do. I like to note this sense 
of honor in the blood, and think it has been transmitted unpolluted to their 
descendants."'

James Olmsted was doubtless laid to rest in the Ancient Burying-Ground, 
which is located back of Center Church in Hartford. He must have been one 
of the first to be buried in this consecrated spot, which, less than a year before, 
had been the home lot of his nephew, Richard Olmsted. There, among many 
quaint and venerable stones, dating as far back as that of Rev. Thomas Hooker 
(1647), there stands a noble monument, erected in 1835 " In memory of the 
First Settlers of Hartford." This is the only monument on which appears the 
name of James Olmsted, or that of his nephew, Richard Olmsted, the founder 
of the other branch of the family in America. The name of the younger man, 
as is just, occupies a humbler position in the long list of colonists, but that of 
James Olmsted is given a place among the first and most eminent names of 
Hartford. All those that follow are scarcely less illustrious, however, and 
represent " the fountain-head of most of the pure streams which have carried 
American national principles to the furthermost regions of this country."

Nicholas Olmsted came to Boston and to Hartford with his father and 
the family. Soon after the settlement of Hartford, it was evident that the 
Indians were " jealous and seemed determined upon the destruction of the 
infant town, and it became a question, either to abandon the country, or 
conquer the foe. 

" On the first of May, 1637, just eighteen months after the settlement 
was begun, and when there were only eight hundred souls in the Colony, 
the Court met and resolved upon an offensive war against the Pequots. On 
the 9th of May ninety men were drafted and ready for the expedition. 

" They embarked in three little floats that were to convey them down 
the river, and on the 15th were at the mouth of the river, whence 20 men 
were sent back to guard their own defenceless homes. On the morning of May 
28th the little army, consisting of seventy-seven Englishmen and a party 
of Narragansett and Mohegan Indians, was before the fort of the Pequots 
at Mystic. Then began the ' direfxil fight ' in which, in one hour, 600 Indians 
were slain and their power broken forever. 

" In three days the little army was at home again with a loss of two 
killed and twenty wounded. The Colony had peace for nearly forty years, 
when King Philip's war began." 

Nicholas served in the Pequot war, under Capt. Mason, and is mentioned 
by him in his account of the burning of the Indian fort: " Lieutenant Thomas 
Bull and Nicholas Olmsted beholding, came up; and when it was thoroughly 
kindled, the Indians ran about as most dreadfully Amazed." — Bodge's Soldiers 
in King Philip's War, etc., p. 13. Both Nicholas and Richard Olmsted, his 
cousin, " received grants of land for services in the Pequot War." Id., p. 
466. 

Nicholas Olmsted was appointed by the General Court, with Thomas 
Bull and Robert Webster, a committee to view and settle Mattatuck, now 
Waterbury, and on April 6, 1674, made a favorable report. 

"The Court appointed Ensign Samuel Steel, Ensign John Wadsworth 
and Lieut. Nicholas Olmsted a committee to regulate the settling of a plan- 



Second Generation 13 

tation at Mattatuck. This committee was composed of men of note, who 
bore honorable names, well known in the history of the Colony, and attest 
the high consideration with which they were regarded. Lieut. Nicholas 
Olmsted was a deputy in 1672, and in active service as a Lieut, in King Philip's 
war." — History of Waterbury, Conn. (Bronson), pp. 7-8. 

Nicholas Olmsted was chosen surveyor of highways in 1646; Townsman 
for the North side 9 years, between 1653 and 1683; Corporal in the Hartford 
Troop of Horse, 1658; freeman and list and rate maker, 1669; deputy to the 
General Court in 1672 and 1673. Aug. 14, 1673, on a great appearance of 
danger from the Dutch, troops were raised in the Colony, 160 from Hart- 
ford County, and Nicholas Olmsted was appointed Lieut. King Philip's war 
began June 20, 1675. In July, 1675, he was sent in command of the troops 
to New London and Huntington on the occasion of an Indian alarm. 
On August 26, 1675, he was made a Captain of the troop. The following 
letters, taken from the Winthrop Papers, are of interest in this connection: 

1st. From John Winthrop, Jr., to Fitz John Winthrop — 

" Hartford, July 9th, 1675. 
"Remember me to Leift. Omsted and let him know that his Wife and all 
friends are well."

" Sir, After my seruice presented to your selfe these are enform you

" NiCHo. Olmsted." 
Mr. Bulls' house was in South Kingston, R. I. 
3d. From John Winthrop, Jr., to Fitz John Winthrop — 

" Hartford, July 12th, 1675. 
' "I am hasted and not willing to delay the post, and shall only add the 
remembrance of my love, and your sisters and to Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and Mr. 
Bull and Capt. Hutchenson, Leift. Omsted and all freinds as occasion, and

" Let Leift; know yt Mrs. Omsted and all his are well, and all at Capt.

4th. From John AUyn to Fitz John Winthrop — 

" Dated. Hartford, Sept. 20, 1675. 
" Majo. Treat was just marching as the alarm reached Hadly. He 
presently sent Cptn. Olmsted wth about 60 men to keep them from passing 
over the river.

Olmsted Stones in the Enfield Cemetery 
To the memory of Joseph Olmsted, Esq., who, having served his genera- 
tion according to the wiU of God, in several important Of&ces, civil and military, 
he died in ye Faith of ye Gospel. 

His body lies beneath this tomb 
And shews whereto all flesh must come. 
No state of worth, not grace can save; 
There's no Distinction in the grave. 
In memory of Mrs. Martha, the amiable ReUct of Joseph Olmsted, Esq. 
Forbear to weep my loving friends; 
Death is the voice Jehovah sends 
To call us to our home. 
Thro' these dark shades from pains redres't, 
Is the right path to endless rest. 
Where joys immortal bloom.

John Olmsted was a pensioner of the Revolutionary War. In 1769, he 
was enrolled a member- of a Light Horse Co., then commanded by Capt. 
Samuel Gates, but at the time of the fight at Lexington, Mass., April 19, 1775,

he had been succeeded by Capt. James Green. On the receipt of the news 
of the commencement of hostilities, Capt. Green requested as many as would 
to repair to Boston to assist against the British, and a number arrived there, 
including Olmsted, about the 10th of May, without their captain. There 
being but few other horsemen, he was not attached to any military organiza- 
tion, but was actively employed by General Warren in carrying orders, and 
in guarding the coast by observing and reporting the movements of the enemy. 
There was more or less firing on the British shipping in the harbor by the 
Americans stationed at various points. When the enemy advanced to cross 
the Charles River to attack the Americans intrenched on Breed's Hill, June 
18, 1775, Olmsted was sent down to the sea coast to watch the hostile move- 
ments, so that he was not in the fight of Bunker Hill and burning of Charles- 
town. 

After the arrival of General Washington he was employed by him as 
express rider and in carrjdng orders from headquarters, and from one part 
of the besiegmg army to another, until Oct., 1775, when he returned to Col- 
chester. On the 10th of Sept., 1776, a detachment of about 20 men of the 
Light Horse Co., to which he belonged, was ordered to join the army in West- 
chester Co., N. Y., where they arrived Sept. 13, and he was put imder the 
command of Major Backus, who divided the company into small parties as 
guards and to carry orders. Major Backus appointed him a Sergeant in com- 
mand of six men stationed at the Point of Rocks, where were springs, visited, 
as appears, by soldiers from both armies. At another time he was stationed 
with his six men at the large " White House " in Morrisania, then transferred 
to " Throgg's Point," remaining there until a detachment of the British army 
landed, compelling them to escape by swimming their horses across the creek. 
This was one portion of the advance which preceded the battle of White 
Plains in Oct., 1776, in which he participated. On the second day of that 
battle he was accidentally met by General Washington, who said that " he 
was the first horseman he had met since the battle commenced " and directed 
him to remain by him, " obeying no one else." He was immediately engaged 
in carrying orders. After the evacuation of Fort Lee in November, he accom- 
panied the army on their march through N. J. and was discharged Dec. 1, 
1776, which discharge was .signed by General Washington, delivered by his 
aide-de-camp, who expressed the thanks of the Commander-in-Chief for 
his services. 

On the 20th of July, 1777, the Light Horse Co. was drafted for two months, 
but was detained over four months, to join the Northern army which was 
opposing the invasion of the army commanded by General Burgoyne, from 
Canada. On arriving at Skeensboro, now Whitehall, N. Y., Olmsted was 
at once employed by General Lincohi and went with him to Lake George to 
prevent an advance of the enemy by way of that lake. He was sent several 
times with orders to Castleton, Vt. Although present at the surrender of 
General Burgoyne, he was not in the battle, as he had charge of a body of 
prisoners, who had been previously captured. During the winter of 1779-80, 
which was unusually severe, he was employed to take care of, and furnish 
forage for, a company of Va. Dragoons quartered at his father's.

Capt. Gideon Olmsted marched with the East Hartford Company for 
the relief of Boston, April, 1775. Six other Olmsteds also went with the

company. He afterwards commanded the privateers Raven and Sea Flower, 
the sloop Hawk, of 12 guns and 60 men, and the brig Gen. Green, of 16 guns 
and 100 men. 

In 1778 he was captain of a French privateer and was captured by the 
Enghsh sloop Ostrich and taken to Jamaica. Here, with three compatriots, 
he was put upon the sloop Active, Capt. Underwood, bound for New York, 
with stores for the British army. On arriving at New York the prisoners 
were to be sent to the infamous prison ships at that port. The crew consisted 
of the captain, mate and two sailors. There were three male passengers and a 
negro servant on board. On Sunday night, Sept. 12, about 12 o'clock, Olm- 
sted and two of his friends were on deck, an old sailor being at the wheel. 
The watch being called, the other prisoner and the sailor came on deck. Capt. 
Underwood and the mate were about to follow, when Olmsted and Clark (the 
prisoner) drew up the ladder and told them they would kill them if they came 
on deck. They then coUed a cable around the companion-way, Olmsted 
being wounded by a pistol ball from below while doing so. The course of 
the vessel was changed toward Egg. Harbor, N. J. Towards daylight those 
below began to fire their pistols through the chinks of the cabin. Capt. 
Olmsted ordered them to desist or he would fire a four-pounder into the cabin. 
Capt. Underwood retorted, "Fire and be d — d." And they did, damaging, 
however, only a puncheon of rum, and a barrel of coffee. Underwood, in a 
rage, cried out that he would blow up the vessel. Olmsted told him he might 
do it and be d — d; he was no more afraid of going to the bottom than they. 
Underwood was about to fire his pistol into the powder barrel, when the mate 
stopped him, and one of the passengers offered to pay all their losses if they 
would cease firing their pistols. But they would not, and another four- 
pounder was sent through the bulkhead. The foresail was then unbent and 
lashed around the companion to screen those on deck; but, finding that the 
rudder had been wedged, they cut a hole in it and fired a swivel, loaded with 
thirty musket ball, into the cabin. This was the last shot fired. Capt. 
Olmsted and his comrades now began to tear up the deck to get at the rudder, 
when those below gave up the contest, hoping the Yankees would take a boat 
and leave when near the shore, or that an English cruiser might relieve them. 
They un wedged the rudder in this hope and things became more "friendly," 
and a quarter of mutton was passed into the cabin. 

Early Tuesday morning the captors made Cape May and hauled down 
their sails to avoid discovery by any chance cruiser. They were discovered, 
however, by the American brig Convention, which showed British colors, and 
fired upon them. The sloop was taken in charge by the Convention and her 
consort, the Girard, and taken to Philadelphia. The cargo was sold for $98.80. 

The U. S. Commissioners of Appeals awarded the entire amount to 
Olmsted and his associates. The following advertisement appeared in the 
Conn. Courant: "The privateer Raven, Gideon Olmsted, commander, now 
lying at Rocky Hill in Wethersfield, Conn., wUl sail for a six weeks' cruise 
within five days. A few gentlemen seamen are wanted, if they apply to the 
Commander on board, within the above time. Sept. 11, 1780."

War record of Capt. Selah Norton, from the records of the U. S. Pension 
Office: 

"He belonged to a troop of Light Horse which was attached to a regiment 
■of Infantry, and according to 'Connecticut men in the Revolution,' he turned 
out as ensign for eight days on the alarm of hostilities at Lexington, Mass., 
but it is probable the Light Horse did not continue in service as such. Norton, 
■early in May, 1775, accepted the position as Clerk and Orderly Sergeant in a 
Company of Foot in Lt. Col. George Pitkin's regt. and was stationed at Rox- 
bury for the siege of Boston. He was discharged there late in Dec, 1775. 
During his service there, about August 1, 1775, he received intelligence of 
dangerous sickness in his family and went home, leaving as his substitute 
Aaron Olmsted, who was an officer. It is proper to state that the files in this 
■office show instances of officers volunteering short tours of duty as privates. 
Olmsted was or had been adjutant of the regiment and was of East Hartford, 
Conn. 

"Norton was appointed at the May session, 1775, of the Legislature, 
■cornet in the 19th Regt. and lieutenant in January, 1778, and captain in 
April, 1779. The Light Horse was composed of members from East Hartford, 
East Windsor, and it is probable from some of the other adjoining towns. 
He is alluded to as in the 4th Company and 2d Regt. by witnesses testifying 
to portions of his services. 

"He served 2 or 3 months in 1776, as cornet in the Light Horse in N. Y. 
•City, and when the place was evacuated, Sept. 15, 1776, he retreated with the 
army under Gen. Washington to White Plains, Westchester Co. Early in 
1777 he, with the Light Horse, was ordered for duty in Rhode Island, and in 
Aug., 1777, under Capt. Joel Loomis and Lt. Augustus Fitch, he marched to 
oppose the advance of Gen. Burgoyne, at or near Saratoga, N. Y. In the same 
year, or in 1778, he was on duty at Horse Neck in Greenwich, Fairfield Co., 
Conn. In August and September, 1781, as capt. of the Light Horse, he was 
•escort to Gov. Trumbull, going to the headquarters of Gen. Washington with a

" Sacketts Harbor, N. Y. 
"Oct. 2, 1813. 
" Dear Parents: 

" I have only time to inform you that we are about embarking for Canada. 
Our army from Fort George is on the way up the lake to join us. They 
have abandoned Fort George, after destroying it, and the town of Newark. 
I am happy to inform you that I am promoted from a 3d to a 2d lieut., from 
last May, and by vacancies happening above me I am now a 1st lieut., and 
have command of a company of 60 men. The conflict will be a bloody one, 
and if I survive it, will write particulars (I hope from Montreal); if not, re- 
member me as I deserve. I hope to sustain the honor of our family and name. 
I am in high spirits and sure of conquering. My love to all our family and 
friends. 

" In haste, I remain 

"Your obedient, 

" Edward Olmsted, 
" Lieut. 16th U. S. Infantry."

Thy frailty read in my untimely fate: 
Nor vigorous health, nor Nature's tenderest ties. 

Nor Parents,' Partners,' Sisters,' Orphans' sighs. 
Avail to save from Death his destined prey. 
Or add one moment to life's closing day." 
Epitaph on Mrs. Sage Olmsted: 

" Let every one who may chance to contemplate this Tribute of Respect 
to the memory of the departed, be assured that her example, 
" Bids you be all that cheers or softens life, 
A tender daughter, sister, friend or wife, 
Bids you be all that virtuous minds adore. 
Then view this marble and be vain no more."

" James Wadsworth grad. Yale, 1787, and in 1790 moved to the Genesee 
country of western New York. He purchased a large tract of land in what is 
now the town of Geneseo, N. Y. Was one of the wealthiest land proprietors 
in the State. He printed and circulated at his own expense, pubhcations on 
the subject of education; employed persons to lecture upon that topic, and 
offered premiums to the towns which first established school libraries. As 
early as 1811, he proposed the instituting of Normal schools. He procured 
the enactment of the school library law in 1838; founded a library and insti- 
tution for scientific lectures at Geneseo, and endowed it with $10,000, and in 
his sales of land always stipulated that a tract of 125 acres in each township 
should be granted free for a church, and another of the same size for a school. 
His donations to the causes of education and religion exceeded $90,000." —

A discourse commemorative of the life and services of Denison Olmsted, 
D.D., Professor of natural philosophy and astronomy in Yale College, was 
delivered in the College Chapel, May 20, 1859, by the Rev. Theodore D. 
Woolsey, D.D., President of Yale College. In the course of his address 
occurs this passage: 

" I appear before the academical body, and this respected audience, 
to-day, as the eldest of the acting colleagues of Prof. Olmsted, in order to pay 
an official, but willing tribute to his worth and services. Not thirteen years 
have elapsed since he stood the fifth, and I the sixth, in the order of seniority 
upon our catalogue. Of the four elder members of the Faculty, one whom 
I love to think of, and love to honor. Prof. Kingsley, was called away by death 
a year after he had resigned his work of half a century in the service of the 
college; and three others, whom age or infirmities had induced to leave their 
stations, still survive, to show to the world how honored is the old age of a 
scholar, who has built his life upon the foundations of Christian virtue. Prof. 
Olmsted, the next in this series, presents an example of what has not hap- 
pened before in our Faculty for more than a generation, (for Prof. Stanley 
had suspended his labors a long time before his death) he died in the midst of his 
work, with his armor on, actively engaged in his lectures through the last

term, and lodking forward, Just before his disease attacked him, to instruc- 
tions during the summer. He had intended, for a considerable time before 
his death, to resign his Professorship in the year 1861, when he should have 
reached the age of seventy. But God's ways are not our ways. The tran- 
quil shade of the evening of life, that harbor from care and toil, where the old 
man of intellectual resources and Christian hopes can look forward and back- 
ward without disturbance, was not allotted to him. He thought of rest on 
earth, as the aged Christian may; but God did better things for him— he 
gave him rest in Heaven. 

" His family affections were delightful, and, united with his sense of 
duty, made him an exemplary son, husband, father, and kinsman. His 
children revered without fearing him; they were trained to exercise their 
powers of thinking, and he was thus within the house their chief teacher. 
Their characters rewarded his efforts; but alas, much more than the usual 
amount of affliction came upon him from a chastening God. 

" Between the years 1844 and 1852, four sons, graduates of Yale College, 
blameless and exemplary in Christian life, giving promise of usefulness, 
were snatched away by consumption, two of them in 1846 in which same year 
also his saintly mother, at the age of nearly ninety, fell asleep in Christ. His 
eldest son, Francis Allyn, found it necessary, soon after graduation in 1839, 
to go upon a voyage in quest of health. He visited the Southern seas, and on 
his return published a small volume on what he had seen, especially on the 
Sandwich Islands. But his voyage was of no permanent use. He died 
not long after receiving the degree of doctor of medicine, in 1844. The second 
son, John Howard, was kept from College for some years by ill health, so that 
he received his degree after his younger brothers, in 1845. He died but a few 
months after taking his degree, in January, 1846, at Jacksonville, in Florida, 
whither his commencing illness had carried him, and was laid by the side of 
Francis. Two of the brothers, Denison and Alexander Fisher, were members 
of the same class of 1844, and both appear as orators on the list of appoint- 
ments for Commencement. Denison, second to none in the hopes with which 
he inspired his friends, and having passed through college without strain 
upon his constitution, seemed to have a career of eminence before him as a 
natural philosopher, when he, too, in 1846, was placed by the side of his 
brothers. The feeblest of them all, Fisher, with great care, prolonged his 
life until 1853. He had repaired to a southern climate and taught chemistry 
in the University of Alabama. Returning to New Haven he engaged in chem- 
ical studies in the analytical laboratory, and published an introduction to his 
science; but the malady only delayed its visit, and his monument records 
that death again desolated this family in 1853. But Prof. Olmsted, some 
time before these successive strokes fell on him, had known what the cup of 
sorrow was. In 1829 his wife died, and the husband, with five little children 
between the ages of five and ten, followed her body to the tomb."

Luman Olmsted came into the then unsettled state of New York in 
the year 1800. He settled about one mile north of the present village of 
Triangle. His early opportunities were very small, but he obtained a good 
common school education, and taught school a number of terms. Necessity 
required constant toil. The dense forest must be cleared up, and the new 
land be brought into a state of cultivation. The young people of the present 
day can hardly conceive what their fathers had to endure to turn a dense 
wilderness into a cultivated field. 

The aggressions of the Mother Country in 1812, aroused the patriotism 
of his youthful heart and he went forth to perpetuate to succeeding genera- 
tions the blessings secured to us by the sacrifices and blood of our fathers. 
Peace being declared, he was discharged, but without any money to bear his 
expenses home. He had to beg his way. By some he was treated kindly, 
by others as if he was a miserable tramp, telling him " He had no business 
to be in the army." He was a kind neighbor, and affectionate in all the various 
relations of life. By the efforts of his son, C. S. Olmsted, Esq., he had just 
commenced receiving his pension as a soldier of the war 1812. But he has 
gone from the battlefields of earth and his name will be stricken from the 
pension list, but: 

" Each soldier's name 
Shall shine untarnished on the rolls of fame. 
And stand the example of each distant age. 
And add new lustre to the historic page." 

For 66 years he had been a member of the Masonic order. He was about 
one year old when Washington was inaugurated President, for the second time; 
hence he lived under tlje administration of every, president of the United 
States. He was a voter when James Madison was elected President in the 
fall of 1816. He was formerly a Democrat but becariie a Republican and 
continued so till the close of life.

1828 to Chautauqua County, where he purchased land from the Holland Land 
Co. His land was a tough, tenacious clay soil covered with a heavy growth 
of beech, maple, ash and hemlock timber, requiring a great amount of labor to 
bring it under cultivation. He found the work too hard and in 1836 deter- 
mined to try his fortune in the West. Selling out his farm in New York he 
removed to Michigan, arriving at Edwardsburg May 20th of that year. The 
first sea.son he rented land on shares, and in 1837 he bought twenty-eight 
acres of land and built upon it a house into which he moved in the Fall. He 
later added to his purchase until he owned some two hundred acres. His 
mother died in 1837 and was among the first persons buried in the Edwardsburg 
cemetery.

Mr. Olmsted was a native of Genesee County, New York State, being 
born and raised on a farm at South Le Roy. He continued in the occupation 
of farming until he was about 30 years of age. At that time he moved with 
his family to the village of Le Roy and engaged in the lumber business. 

He was at one time one of the wealthiest citizens of that place. He 
manufactured his own lumber up in Alleghany County and shipped it down 
the canal. His retail yards were at Buffalo, Rochester and Lockport, and his 
name was well known among the leading merchants of all those cities. 

While a resident of Le Roy Mr. Olmsted helped found the Le Roy 
Academy, a school for boys and girls, and there his children obtained a 
part of their education. 

For several years past Mr. Olmsted had resided in a pretty cottage home 
which his son, J. G. Olmsted, built for him near his own home on West Grand 
avenue. It was there that he died. He had always been interested in edu- 
cational affairs, and was well read even up to the time of his last illness. He had 
engaged in no business since coming to Des Moines, but enjoyed an extended 
acquaintance through his long residence in that city.

Kane County, 111., and three years later to Iowa. His father and mother 
were Christians and active members of the Congregational Church. 
His mother, who died when he was eleven, was sister to Joseph Colton of 
Colton's geography and maps. He was converted in September, 1843, at 
Fairplay, Wis., where he was engaged with his father in mining. He united 
with the Congregational Church, and was an earnest and faithful member. 
Desiring to obtain an education, he entered Wilbraham (Mass.) Academy, 
and had for his instructors such men as Miner Raymond, Oliver Marcy, 
and Geo. M. Steele. Here he remained for six years, studying hard and 
paying his own way. Among the students at this time were Fales H. 
Newhall, Bishop H. W. Warren, and Wm. Aug. Smith. On leaving school 
he taught for several years at Georgetown, near Washington, and then 
returned west, to Geneva, 111. He began his career as a preacher under 
the presiding-eldership of Rev. S. P. Keyes, in the Rock River conference.

(1076) JOHN OLMSTED, Springfield, Mass. b. June 1, 1820; m. July 4, 
1842, Rhodelia E. Langdon; b. Apr. 8, 1822; d. Sept. 29, 1891; dau. of Calvin 
and Sybil (Pease) Langdon, of Somers, Conn. In 1902, he was president of 
Springfield Electric Street Railway Company, and for many years has been 
one of the most active men in the business world of Western Massachusetts. 
His mother was a daughter of Ensign John Russell, who fought and gained 
his title in the Revolution. The Russells were of English origin. Mr. Olm- 
sted's earlier education was obtained in the public schools of Enfield, supple- 
mented by courses at Wilbraham and Westfield Academies. When twenty 
years of age he was a manufacturer of tinware, and a dealer in paper stock in . 
his native town. He continued in this business for about twelve years. About 
this time he bought an attractive place in Somers, Conn., andresided there 
until 1860, when he removed to Springfield, Mass., where he has since lived. 
He formed a partnership with Lewis H. Taylor, in the business of cotton 
batting, cotton waste, and paper stock. In 1880, Mr. Frank E. Tuttle became 
associated with him and the business grew so rapidly that in 1888 it was 
removed to Chicopee and organized as a stock company under the firm name 
of the Olmsted and Tuttle Company. Mr. Olmsted was the first president 
of this company, but in 1898 he sold his interest in the stock. He early became 
connected with the Springfield Street Railway Company and was at first a 
stockholder. He has been president for twenty-five years. Under his ad- 
ministration the capital stock has been increased from fifty thousand to a 
million and a half dollars. Mr. Olmsted has been an excellent manager, both 
for his fellow-stockholders and for the public, who have better accommoda- 
tions than are furnished any other city of the size. 

In politics Mr. Olmsted was a Republican. He has never been an office 
seeker and has been a very reluctant office taker. He has served in both 





<S^i-ii^i.6c:z^ 



Eighth Generation 103 

branches of the city council. In 1883 he was a representative to the General 
Court. No man stands higher in the local business world than does Mr. 
Olmsted. His word passes unchallenged, for whatever he promises he will 
perform. He has borne no small part in the material development of Spring- 
field. He is president of the Northampton Street Railway Company and of 
the First National Bank of this city, and he is a director of the United 
Electric Light Company, of the Indian Orchard Company, of the Hodges 
Fiber Carpet Company of Indian Orchard, of the Holyoke Street Railway 
Company and of Oak Grove cemetery, and vice-president of the City 
Library Association. He is the possessor of a good private library. Mr. 
Olmsted has been a deep and earnest reader all his long life, having for 
over sixty years averaged about four hours' reading every day. He is parti- 
cularly learned in the history and origin of the ancient religions.

(1132) FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED, A. M., LL. D., Brookline, Mass. 
b. at Hartford, Conn., Apr. 26, 1822; d. Aug. 28, 1903; m. June 13, 1859, Mary 
Cleveland (Perkins) Olmsted (see No. 1133). 

Mr. Olmsted was for three years a student of civil engineering, and later 
pursued scientific studies at Yale College. He was then for two years a work- 
ing student of agriculture, and afterwards seven years a farmer and horti- 
culturist upon his own land. At this time he was already an ardent lover 
of natural scenery, and for the enjoyment of it made many journeys, chiefly 
in the saddle or on foot. 

In 1850 he traveled in Europe, mainly on foot, giving special attention 
to rural affairs, particularly to parks and pleasure grounds and the manner 
in which they were managed and used. He was aided in doing so by letters 
and advice of Professor Asa Gray, Mr. A. J. Downing and Sir William Hooker. 

In 1853 and 1854, he was engaged in a study of the economical condition 
of the Slave States. For closer observations of rural details, he traveled 
a distance of more than four thousand miles in these states on horseback. 

In 1856, he visited Europe again and has done so three times since, in 
each case giving special study to parks and pleasure grounds, public forests, 
zoological and botanical gardens and the plans and manner of enlargement 
of towns and suburbs. 

In the spring of 1857 he was appointed superintendent of the preparatory 
work of the projected Central Park of New York. The following fall, in 
association with Mr. Calvert Vaux, he devised a plan for this park, which was 




Frederick Law Olmsted 



Eighth Generation 107 

selected as the most satisfactory of thirty- three plans submitted in compe- 
tition. After the adoption of the plan, the designers were employed to carry 
it out, and in order to weather political difficulties, were required to proceed 
as rapidly as practicable. At one time they employed nearly 4000 men, 
securing, under great local difSculties, a degree of discipline, efficiency and 
economy hardly known on any other municipal public work in the country. 

At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, Mr. Olmsted was appointed 
by the President a member of the National Sanitary Commission, and was 
asked by his associates to take the duty of organizing and managing its execu- 
tive business. In the fall of 1863, the work of the Commission having been 
fully developed and the successful accomplishment of its objects assured, he 
resigned the position and passed the next two years on the Pacific Slope. 
He there served as Chairman of the California State Commission, taking the 
custody of the Yosemite and Mariposa Reservations ceded to the State by 
Congress as public parks. In 1865, he returned to New York and entered, 
with Mr. Vaux, upon the general practice of Landscape Architecture. In 
1872, his partnership with Mr. Vaux was dissolved, and he served for a time 
as President and Treasurer of the Park Commission of New York, and was 
afterwards their Landscape Architect for nearly six years. In 1878 he moved 
to Boston, and in 1884 took into partnership his son, Mr. John Charles Olmsted, 
and in 1889, Mr. Henry Sargent Codman, both of whom had received their 
professional training in his office and had afterwards pursued studies in Europe 
under his advice. 

Mr. Olmsted has been employed upon upwards of eighty public recreation 
grounds, among the more important of which are the public parks of New 
York, Brooklyn, Boston, Bridgeport, Trenton, Montreal, Buffalo, Chicago, 
Milwaukee, Louisville and Kansas City. He has also had a large practice 
in the laying out of towns and of suburban villa districts and private grounds, 
and in pursuit of this practice has visited every State in the Union. He has 
eight times crossed the Continent. He is the designer of the grounds of the 
Capitol at Washington, including the marble terrace, the grand staircase 
and other structures exterior to the main building; also of the general scheme 
for the restoration and reservation of the natural scenery of Niagara Falls, 
and in association with Mr. Vaux, of the plan now being carried out by the 
State of New York for this purpose. 

Mr. Olmsted is the author of the following works: " Walks and Talks of 
an American Farmer in England," first published in 1852; it has been several 
times reprinted, one edition having been prepared especially for the Common 
School Libraries of the State of Ohio; " A Journey in the Seaboard Slave States" 
—1856; " A Journey in Texas "—1857; " A Journey in the Back Country "— 
1861. Translations of the " Journey in Texas " have been published in Paris 
and Leipzig. At the outbreak of the Rebellion, a compilation of the last three 
works was published in London, under the title of " The Cotton Kingdom," 
and was much quoted by those leaders of EngKsh public opinion who favored 
the Northern view of the conffict. 

In addition to the above books, Mr. Olmsted has written nauch on special 
problems of his profession, which is to be found in various periodicals and in 
printed reports of Park Commissions and other bodies. 

Mr. Olmsted has received the honorary title of A. M. from Amherst 
College, and both A. M. and LL. D. from Harvard and Yale Colleges; he is 
an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects, of the Boston 



108 Olmsted Family Genealogy 

Society of Architects, of the London Metropolitan Public Gardens Association, 
of the MiHtary Order of the Loyal Legion, and of the Harvard <^. fi. «. He 
was one of the founders and is now an honorary member of the Metropolitan 
Art Museum and of the Union League, and is an active member of the Century 
Club of New York, and of the St. Botolph Club of Boston, and belongs to 
many scientific and benevolent societies.

(1260) (Brig. Gen.) JAMES S. WADSWORTH, Geneseo, N. Y. b. Oct. 3„ 
1807; d. May 8, 1864; m. Mary Craig Wharton. 

Early in the year 1861, the rebellion in the slave states of the Union 
against the general Government found Mr. Wadsworth at his temporary 
residence in the city of New York. The President of the United States had 
called for troops to defend the seat of Government from spoliation and possible 
capture at the hands of the South. In this hour of its extremity, Mr. Wads- 
worth, in the impulsive patriotism of his nature, rushed to the country's, 
rescue. With his own purse and credit, he furnished a vessel with a cargo 
of army supplies, went with it to Annapolis, and gave his personal attention 
to its distribution among the troops that had been hastily called to protect 
the city of Washington. This assistance on the part of Mr. Wadsworth, ren- 
dered in the impoverished condition of the public treasury, although afterwards 
repaid to him, was none the less creditable to both his patriotism and liberality. 
He now abandoned his private affairs to his agents, and devoted his entire- 
energies to his country. As a volunteer Aide to General McDowell, he en- 
gaged in the first battle of Bull Run, and by his courage and skill, retrieved 
much of the disaster of that ill-fated engagement. In July, 1861, he was 
appointed Brigadier General, and assigned to a command in the Army of the 
Potomac. He was later the Military Governor of the city of Washington. 
Under General Reynolds he was appointed Commander of the 1st Division, and 
led this Division in the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. At 
Gettysburg, his was the first Division engaged, going into action at nine in 
the morning and remaining on the field till four in the afternoon. Nor was- 
he of his family alone in his devotion to the public service. Three sons,.

Charles F., Craig W., and James W., followed him into the army. His son-in- 
law, Captain Ritchie, also served in the early part of the war. If, in the 
annals of time, an instance of higher patriotism and intenser devotion to the 
honor of their country has been shown by a father and three sons, possessing 
millions of wealth, and beckoned by all the allurements of ease and luxury 
from personal danger, that instance has yet to be written. General Wads- 
worth fell in the " Battle of the Wilderness." — The Wadsworth Family in

York and Colon, S. America. The ships of this Hne formed a sort of auxiliary 
force to the United States Navy and were commanded by naval oflScers. 
Dr. Olmsted served under the command of Captain Porter, afterwards so 
distinguished as an admiral in the Civil War. 

On leaving the service the doctor returned home and settled in East 
Hartford as a practicing physician. Here he married Anna, daughter of 
Colonel Solomon Olmsted, his fifth cousin. 

(It is perhaps not unfitting to note here a curious little coincidence. In 
the celebration on the occasion of Lafayette's visit to Hartford during his 
return journey through the States, the Governor's Foot Guard was com- 
manded by Major Lynde Olmsted, the doctor's father and the First Regiment 
was commanded by Colonel Solomon Olmsted, his father-in-law to be.) 

After practicing his profession in East Hartford for ten (10) years, illness 
in his family, which necessitated a change of climate, caused him to give up 
his practice, and an incipient heart affection led him later under the advice 
■of some of the most eminent New York physicians to abandon his profession 
altogether. After several years spent in favorable climates the health of his 
family was restored and he came back and took up his residence in Hartford, 
where he lived until his home was broken up by the death of his wife and the 
marriage of his daughters. His later years he devoted to the Olmsted Gene- 
alogy which proved to be to him indeed a labor of love and in which he took 
lasting satisfaction — a satisfaction marred only by the fact that he did not five 
to see it published. He died at the residence of his son-in-law, Rev. William 
E. Strong, in Jackson, Michigan. 

Dr. Olmsted was a member of the Congregational Church and was for 
many years a deacon in the Park Church, Hartford.

Ninth Generation 135 

<1805) FRANK MERTON OLMSTED, Conneaut, Ohio. b. Sept. 25, 1855, 
at Sandy Creek, Oswego County, N. Y.; m. May 7, 1879, Eva P. Robbins, of 
Sandy Creek, Oswego County, N. Y. ; dau. of B. G. and Julia K. (Grenell) 
Robbins.

(1806) ADDIE MARIA OLMSTED, b. May 23, 1858, in Pulaski, Oswego 

County, N. Y.; m. Feb. 20, 1879, Laurel Venen Stone, Conneaut, Ohio; b. 

Apr. 7, 1855; son of Edward Augustin and Eliza Ann (Venen) Stone. 

Mr. Stone was born near Conneaut, Ohio, upon his father's farm, and 

removed to Vermillion, Erie County, Ohio, where for six years he conducted 

a jewelry store. He is now in the same line of business in Conneaut, Ohio. 

2963, Frank Edward; b. July 11, 1884; d. Dec. 7, 1909. 2964, John (Don) 

Olmsted; b. in Conneaut, Ohio, May 15, 1886; m. Aug. 17, 1910, Jessie 

Porter; b. Oct. 20, 1884; dau. of Samuel Cochran and Mary Louise 

(Calvert) Porter, of Jamestown, Pa. 

Mr. Frank E. Stone received his education at the Public Schools of Con- 
neaut, Ohio, and entered the jewelry establishment of his father, as a watch 
maker's apprentice, where he spent five years learning the business, and 
became a master workman. Through his fondness for the water, he was 
tendered and accepted a position as Purser of the large steamer, Car-Ferry, 
M. & B., No. 2, which plies between Conneaut and Port Stanley, Ont., and 
continued in that Office for two and one-half years, during which period he 
accomplished the remarkable feat of having never missed a trip. While serv- 
ing in this capacity, he studied marine books and literature, and during the 
winter of 1907-8 he attended a nautical school in Cleveland, Ohio, where he 
look the niate's, and pilot's examinations, and on being successful he was 
promoted to second mate of the steamer, Car-Ferry, M. & B., No. 2 in the 
•spring of 1908. He was the youngest man on the Great Lakes holding a full 
commission as pilot. He was ambitious, and had he been spared, there is no 
question but that he would have been master of some steamer in a few years. 
When a small boy, he joined the Conneaut Fire Department as lantern boy 
for the Protection Hose Company; later he was transferred to the Hook and 
Ladder Company as a regular member, and was an Officer in this company 
when he went on the Lake. He enlisted as a private in Company L., Ohio 
l^Tational Guard, when organized, and rose in this organization, step by step, 
until he had attained the rank of 2nd Lieut., which position he had to resign 
when he went on the Lake. He was also a member of the Masonic fraternity, 
being a member of Evergreen Lodge No. 222, F. & A. M. He was raised in 
the Methodist faith, and was a member of the First M. E. Church of 
Conneaut. On the morning of December 7, 1909, his boat steamed out of port 
with 32 men, officers and crew, and never reached port again, and the boat 
as yet has never been located. Not one survived to tell the story of that 
terrible storm. There were 14 bodies found that came ashore at different 
places, but all hopes of having his body to lay away in the family lot in the 
cemetery have been abandoned. But there will be a nice monument erected 
■to his memory by his grief-stricken parents on their family lot, for they have 
nothing but pleasant memories of him. He was a great favorite and was 
loved and respected by all who knew him. He was in the 25th year of his 
age, and unmarried. 

Mr. Johnfl^ Olmsted Stone was educated in the Public Schools of Con-

Descendants 

of Capt. Richard Olmsted 

of Norwalk, Conn. 



FIRST GENERATION 

RICHARD OLMSTED, Norwalk, Conn. bap. at Fairsted, Essex County, 
England, Feb. 20, 1612 ; son o£ Richard Olmsted, who was son of James and Jane 
(Bristow) Olmsted, of Great Leighs, Essex County, England. His will is 
dated Sept. 5, 1684. As appears in his will, he was married twice, but the 
names of his wives are not known. His sons were children of the first wife. 
He also had a daughter who had died before the making of his will. 
3954, James +. 3955, John +. 

Richard Olmsted came with the family to America, and until his mar- 
riage was probably a member of his Uncle James' family; but of the date of that 
event we have no record. He came to Hartford in the summer of 1636, with 
the party from Newtown, Mass. He was one of the first settlers and pro- 
prietors of the new town. In two divisions of land, he had in the proportion 
of 10 and 8. His house lot was No. 49, and was on the west side of Main St., 
on part of which now stands the Center Church and the old burying ground 
(the second one in Hartford). 

The town bought the lot, as per record: " The 11 of January, 1640. It is 
further ordered that the Burying-place is appointed to be (a) parcel of Richard 
Olmsted's lot; and for satisfaction to Richard Olmsted for the said Burying- 
place, and the fencing about it, he is to have a parcel of land lying at the North 
Meadow gate; (the Cow-yard: containing about an acre and a half of ground.)" 
" The said Richard Olmsted is to have part of John Skinner's lot, on which 
the said John Skinner's house stands; and the said John Skinner is to remove 
his dwelling house." " Richard Olmsted is to trans-sill his house that stands 
upon the Burying-place and then the town is to remove it to the lot, the same, 
Richard Olmsted receives of John Skinner." This lot of John Skinner's was 
No. 48, next north of Richard Olmsted's lot No. 49. 

One of the first persons buried there was probably his Uncle James 
Olmsted. 

From his owning a house in Hartford, it is probable that he was married 
before 1640. 

On June 19, 1650, articles of agreement were drawn up for the purchase of 
" Norwalke," from Roger Ludlow, of Fairfield, Conn., and at a session of the 
General Court of the Colony, the 26th of June, 1650, Nathaniel Ely and Richard 
Olmsted in behalf of themselves and other inhabitants of Hartford, desired the 
leave and approbation of the Court for (the) planting of Norwalk, to whom an 
affirmative answer was returned Sept. 11, 1651: " it was ordered that Norwalk 
should be a town." 

Richard Olmsted moved to Norwalk in 1650 or 1651, as his name appears 
in the deed of the Indian Chiefs dated Feb. 15, 1651. The land purchased 
from Roger Ludlow comprised only the eastern part of the town. The pur- 
chase price was fifteen pounds with some additional considerations. The 
central part of Norwalk had been originally purchased by Capt. Patrick of 
Greenwich, but the payment had never been completed to the satisfaction of 
the Indians. The amount still owing, viz.: " two Indian coates and fowre 
fathom of wampam " was made good to them and that part of the town also 
acquired. The additional land secured from the Indian chiefs, Feb. 15, 1651, 
" for the consideration of Thirtie Fathum of Wampum, Tenn Kettles, Fifteen

Coates, Tenn payr of Stockings, Tenn Knifes, Tenn Hookes, Twenty Pipes, 
Tenn Muckes, and Tenn needles " comprised the western part of Norwalk. In 
a table of original grants of home lots to the first settlers of Norwalk, 1652, 
appears the name of Richard Olmsted and a description of his home lot: 4 
acres and 1 rood. Lots 15 and half of 17, with 219 acres commonage. In the 
"estate of lands and accommodations " of Norwalk in 1655 he is credited 
with ^219. 

Mr. Selleck, in his History of Norwalk (p. 24), says: "It speaks well for the 
new company's enterprise and loyalty that it was able to send its maiden 
delegate, Richard Olmsted, to Hartford, even as early as May, 1653." 

"To make it personal, it is recorded that the day after the Court sat, Rich- 
ard Olmsted was appointed Sergeant, and deputed to 'exercise' the Norwalk 
soldiers and 'to examine their arms.' 

"Richard Olmsted bore the test of power well, and his first year as Rep- 
resentative was supplemented by a ' dozen other sessions to 1679.' " 

Richard Olmsted must have been living as late as July 8, 1686, for his 
name appears in a patent bearing that date, by which patent the original pur- 
chase of lands from the Indians for the site of Norwalk is confirmed by the 
Governor and General Court of Connecticut. 



His Civil Services 

In 1646, Constable in Hartford. 

In 1649, Fence viewer in Hartford. 

In 1653, Deputy of Norwalk to the General Court at Hartford. 

In 1656, appointed by the General Court, Leather seller, for Norwalk. 

In 1657, chosen Townsman in Norwalk. 

May 19, 1659, appointed with three others to settle a difficulty between the 
towns of Stratford and Fairfield, with the Indians, relative to lands. 

May 17, 1660, he was appointed Grand Juror for Norwalk. 

Oct. 4, 1660, Deputy to the General Court at Hartford. He was chosen 
Deputy of Norwalk to the General Court a dozen times between 1660 and 1679. 

In 1664, " The Court appointed Mr. Campfield, Deacon More, Mr. Fayre- 
child, Mr. Hull and Lt. Olmsted a committee to ripen the business respecting 
the Calf in controversie between Mr. Lord and Danl. Cone who returned that 
they having viewed the Sayd beast, and the evidences of both sides, doe judge 
it to be Mr. Lord's steare. The Court confirms this determination that the 
stear doth belong to Mr. Lord." 

At a General Court, held at Hartford, called by the Governor, July 6, 
1665, it was announced that the Court has been advised by his Majesty's 
order, that DeRuyter is likely to assault the Colonies, and that his Majesty 
had made known his pleasure that the Colonies should put themselves in a 
posture of defense. The Court ordered that each plantation in the Colony 
should consider some way to discover the approach of the enemy, and ap- 
pointed Committees, to act generally in this matter from each town. 

Lt. Olmsted appears on the Committee appointed to represent the Colony 
or that part between Stratford and Rye. 

Oct. 12, 1665, he was appointed to view the lands appertaining to Hast- 
ings and Rye, for a new plantation.

In 1681, Capt. Richard Olmsted was appointed one of the Committee 
to order and dispose of the affairs of the plantation upon the Hop Ground 
(now Bedford, in Westchester County, N. Y.). 

From all this it appears, that in conjunctions of special difficulty and 
danger, requiring great intrepidity, integrity and sound judgment, he had 
the confidence of the Colony and his townsmen to a high degree. 

Richard Olmsted was in 1659 one of a Committee of four, appointed by 
the General Court, to lay out 80 acres on Golden Hill, in Bridgeport, Conn., as 
a permanent dwelling place for the Indians. His wife was in Hartford in 
July, 1672, being sick with fever and ague, as appears from a letter from 
John Winthrop, Jr., to Waite Winthrop, Esq.

REBECCA OLMSTED (sister of Richard and John), m. Thomas Newell, 
of Farmington, Conn., (Freeman 1669; d. Sept. 13, 1689). His estate of /700 
was divided in 1689. She came with her uncle, James Olmsted, to America, 
and was a member of his family until after his death in 1640; was en- 
rolled member of the Farmington Church, July 12, 1663. She was a legatee 
of Dr. John Olmsted's widow. She died Feb. 24, 1698.

(Dr.) JOHN OLMSTED, Hartford, Conn., (brother of Richard and Rebecca). 
He came with the family to America in 1632, and was doubtless a member of 
his uncle James Olmsted's family at Newtown, Mass., and at Hartford, Conn. 
Removed soon to Saybrook, Conn., thence in 1660 to Norwich, Conn. Was 
freeman, 1662; Surgeon of part of the forces in King Philip's War; married 
Elizabeth; dau. of Matthew Marvin; was a recipient of land by will of Joshua 
Uncas in 1675. His will was probated Sept. 22, 1686; made not long before, 
though, he himself only 60 years of age, which no doubt was by several years 
too small a reckoning. He left most of his large estate to his brother and sis- 
ter. No children are mentioned in the will.

Capt. James Olmsted was Town Clerk of Norwalk, Conn., for 29 years, 
from 1678 to 1707 and again in 1721. He was also Town Judge, and repeatedly 
a Deputy to the General Court at Hartford. In fact, he was one of Norwalk's 
most eminent and influential citizens. In 1671 he was chosen Selectman. In 
1673 in " The Estates of Lands and Accommodations of ye Towne of Nor- 
walk," James Olmsted is credited with ;^50. In 1680 he was made Lieut. From 
1682 to 1685 he was again Selectman. On Jan. 16, 1694, he was chosen by the 
town to select a minister, and on Oct. 8, 1697, he was chosen " for to signifie 
unto the Reverend Elders at the time of ordination, the good agreement of the 
towne with the church in the ordayning of Rev. Mr. Steven Buckingham." 
On Jan. 4, 1702-03, we find the name of James Olmsted as Justice and Recorder, 
affixed to a document, in which the town of Norwalk lays claim to " several! 
Islands lying adjacent to their township . . . namely Cockenoes Island 
known by the sayd name, and Mamachimons Island, and the Long Island, 
and Camfield's Island, known by sayd names, and all other Islands lying in or 
adjacent unto the towneshipp of Norwalk." In 1706, he was a member of a 
committee to seat the church, " the sayd committee to order and determine that 
matter according to their best discretion; they to have respect to age, quality, 
and the estates of persons in the publique list, and the towne to abide their 
determination." By vote of Dec. 11, 1723, the town of Norwalk granted to 
Capt. Samuel Hanford the right " to sit in ye pue with Captain Olmsted and 
Captain Piatt," evidently a privilege to be desired, as his seat in the church 
was one of honor.

In his boyhood, June, 1776, Lemuel Olmsted entered the Continental 
Army, in Col. Philip Burr Bradley's battalion; was taken prisoner and confined 
in the prison ship in New York harbor, where his health was seriously 
undermined. He fortunately escaped with his life, and after recruiting his 
health for a short time, re-entered the service and continued to the end of 
the war. The family of Silence Weed, his wife, were from Glasgow, Scotland. 
She was well educated, and remarkable for beauty, grace and good sense. 

After his marriage he first settled in Danbury, Conn., removing thence 
in the early Spring of 1786 to Stillwater (afterwards Malta), Saratoga County, 
N. Y., and settled about a mile north of Round Lake in that county. Not- 
withstanding his impaired health, he was an active and influential pioneer, 
and raised a family of sturdy and self-reliant children, who survived to praise 
him. His widow survived him many years, living on the homestead which 
her husband had carved out of the wilderness. She was buried beside him.

m. Sept. 2, 1819, (Rev.) Elijah King, D.D., of Cambridge, Washington 
County, N. Y.; b. 1786; d. 1861. He was a Methodist Clergyman of the Old 
Genesee Conference (New York State). 

4929, Mary Ann; b. Apr. 8, 1821; m. Nov. 4, 1846, Samual E. Simmons, of 
Fort Edward, N. Y. 4930, (Rev.) Joseph Elijah, Ph.D., D.D.; b. Nov. 
30, 1823; m. July 22, 1850, Melissa Bayley, of Newbury, Vt. 

It being in contemplation to erect at Fort Edward, N. Y., an institution 
on a grander scale than any existing boarding seminary, the principal of Fort 
Plain seminary. Rev. Elijah King, was invited to visit the town with a view to 
give his advice in the proposed enterprise. In connection with Rev. Henry 
B. Taylor he matured the plans, assisted at the laying of the corner stone in 
May, 1854, and was induced to assume the principalship of Fort Edward 
Institute for a term of 10 years. Dec. 7, 1854, he opened the first term with 
500 students in attendance, and during the 23 years of its subsequent history, 
he has been its sole principal, registering over 10,000 different names, hailing 
from over 33 of the States of the Union. Many of his students have taken 
conspicuous places among the successful men and women of this generation. 
Over 100 of his students joined in the war for maintaining the Union, of whom 
18 gave their lives that the nation might not die. A few of his young men also 
fought on the Confederate side. He has sent out 165 clergymen of the various 
denominations, of whom already two have become Doctors of Divinity. The 
lawyers and physicians have been almost as numerous. The Institute has 
had one representative in Congress, one State Senator, and, at different times, 
nearly a score of Assemblymen. It has five or six judges and several school 
commissioners and a whole army of teachers. Besides the hundreds of its 
regular graduates, it has sent not less than 250 young men to college and pro- 
fessional schools. 

In 1862 Union College conferred the degree of Doctor of Divinity upon 
Professor King, and in 1873 the Regents of the University of New York, in 
recognition of his efficiency as an educator, conferred upon him the degree of 
Ph.D. 

In the discharge of his duties as principal of Fort Edward Institute, he 
has lectured before the faculty and students over 300 times, and has found 
leisure to deliver, outside the walls of the Institute, 210 lectures and addresses, 
besides having preached 1,032 sermons in 182 different pulpits. From the 
sessions of the conference of clergymen, of which he is a member, he has never 
been absent for a day. In 1864 he was elected by his brethren a delegate to 
the General Conference of the M. E. church, at Philadelphia; having also en- 
joyed the honor of serving as a delegate to the general Conference of 1856, 
representing the Vermont Conference, from which he was transferred to the 
Troy conference, on a vote of that conference requesting it. For two weeks 
he served as Acting Delegate in the General Conference at Chicago, in 1868. 
Once he has been called upon to address the alumni of his college, once to 
deliver the oration before the convention of Psi Upsilon — his college 
fraternity, and twice to deliver the annual poem at Psi Upsilon conventions.

Jane (Ryder) Westervelt. 

Silas Olmsted probably resided in Norwalk, Conn., until after 1805, for 
his first son, and only child by his first wife, was born in that city. He began 
life as a poor boy ; was a ship carpenter by trade, but soon abandoned that for 
the grocery business in New York City. By hard work, business sagacity and 
careful economy, he gained the then unusually large fortune of between a 
quarter and a half million dollars. As is so often the case, there was 
disagreement among the heirs, the will was contested, and when, after 
many years, the case was finally arbitrated, the lawyers had made their 
fortunes, and many of the heirs had lost theirs. Mr. Olmsted was a just 
man in his business dealings, giving good weight and measure, paying 
every cent that he owed, and exacting the same from others. For this reason, 
some thought him a hard man to deal with. He was not a demonstrative 
man, nor even affectionate, some thought, but he was always fond of children. 
He belonged to the Episcopal Church, as did his daughter Elizabeth. As a 
young man he was about five feet, eight inches in height, good-looking, with 
a clear blue eye, light hair, clear skin and red cheeks. As he grew older, his 
frame became heavy, though he was never corpulent. In 1848, he removed 
from New York City to Tarrytown, N. Y., where he spent the remainder of 
his' life. His second wife, Nancy Westervelt, had dark hair and brown eyes. 
She was rather a severe looking woman, and a great worker. Out of eighteen 
births, she only reared eight of her children. She was a member of the Baptist 
Church; descended from one of the early Dutch settlers, Lubbert Lubbertsen 
Van Westervelt and his wife Geesie Roeloffe. He was born in 1620, and came 
with his brother Willem and their families from Meppel, province Dreuth, 
Holland, in the ship Hope, in April, 1662; settled in Bergen County, N.

Zalmon Olmsted was in all his characteristics a striking type of the 
Norseman — six feet in height, erect, and muscular, no way inclined to corpu- 
lence, weighing about 180 pounds, flaxen hair (light brown), fair complexion, 
of extraordinary physical strength; fearless in what he conceived to be right, 
firm in the discharge of duty, of good judgment and strictest integrity, re- 
spected and trusted in every relation of life — he was in the day of that political 
distinction a pronounced Federalist and rhember of the " Cincinnati." He 
invariably declined office but was for many years School Inspector and Com- 
missioner, takihg an active part in every movement for the advancement of 
learning and religion. 

At three years of age his father moved to Stillwater (now Malta), Sara- 
toga County, N. Y. Later he removed to Moreau in the same county. His 
farm of 800 acres lay on the west bank of the Hudson River, about three miles 
south of Fort Edward. Here he died, Dec. 6, 1853, and lies buried in the 
family ground on the farm. 

Rebecca, his widow, continued to live on the same farm until her death, 
Sept. 27, 1861, and was buried by the side of her husband.

He left New York for Indiana in Dec, 1817, leaving his family in Manlius, 
N. Y., near his father's residence, where 6 of his children were born, for six 
months, when they went to Evansville, Ind. 

He was at one time Judge of the Court of Vanderburg County, Ind. 
Extract from an obituary notice in the EDisville, Kentucky, Journal: 

" A man of extraordinary talent, one of a rare few who have learned the 
art of growing old gracefully." 

" Though residing with those who had embarked the scions of their house 
and every life-hope upon the success or failvure of the Confederacy, he never 
even momentarily wavered from what he considered his duty, and this was a 
staunch and devoted love for the Union and the Constitution."

The Ferris family were of Connecticut origin, but moved over the line 
into Salem, Westchester County, N. Y. at an early date. Sylvanus Ferris 
came to Herkimer County, N. Y., in 1797, in a two-wheeled vehicle. Mrs. 
Ferris was a model woman for pioneer life. Her husband was clear-headed 
and sagacious, and possessed a high order of business talent. Success seemed 
to attend all his ventures. His large family was carefully reared and well 
educated for the time in which they lived. The parents were staunch Presby- 



Sixth Generation 239 

terians, and inculcated habits of industry, economy and morality. Mr. Ferris 
moved to Russia, Herkimer County, N. Y., in 1830. In 1834, he became 
interested in a scheme to purchase lands, found a colony and build a College 
in the Mississippi Valley, whither the tide of emigration was then turning. 
The original mover in the project was Rev. George W. Gale, a Presbyterian 
clergyman, and cousin of Mrs. Ferris. A company was formed, stock sub- 
scribed, and a committee appointed to purchase lands. Ferris was one of this 
committee In 1835 he made an extended tour through the unsettled portion 
of Illinois. The location selected was Knox County. This choice of land was 
fortunate, and some 15,000 acres were secured at government price. Mr. 
Ferris became a m,an of wealth. He gave in his will $100,000 to the Home 
Missionary Society of his Church, and a like sum to the American Bible So- 
ciety. His last vote was cast for Abraham Lincoln. — From the Norway,

Until twenty years of age Phineas P. Olmsted continued to make his home 
with his parents, attending the common schools, and received practical in- 
struction on his father's farm in the duties pertaining to agriculture. Starting 
for the West he worked at different points in order to obtain money to con- 
tinue his journey, and for a time was employed at Madison, Wis. From 
there he proceeded to Grant County, thence to Prairie du Chien, in which 
place he resided until April 1st, 1840. Near Patch Grove, Wis., he taught 
school for three months, when he learned that the government had commenced 
building Ft. Atkinson on the Turkey River, and in company with his brother 
he went there to look the country over. This brother and he soon selected a 
claim in what is now Monona Township, and the two were the first to settle 
within its limits. They built a cabin in July, 1840, and kept house in primitive 
fashion, often entertaining travelers, and also Indians. At that time there 
were about two hundred red men in the township, who were known as the 
Whirling Thunder Band. At one time when the cabin was only partially 
constructed, the brother of our subject was obliged to go on business to Wis- 
consin, and during his absence about eight Indians came to beg for food; 
young Phineas gave them what he could, for his supplies were at a low ebb, 
but it was evident that the red men were not satisfied, as they kept looking 
aroimd in all corners for more. Seeing a knife in the hand of a murderous- 



242 Olmsted Family Genealogy 

looking brave concealed under his blanket, he knew at once that trouble 
was brewing and as he had no other weapon handy, he picked up an axe and 
spoke in a loud voice, commanding the Indians to begone. After looking at 
him for a moment, rather to his surprise they left, and this was the only time 
in his eight years of experience with the Indians that he believed they meant 
him personal harm. 

In the spring of 1841 the brothers sold their claim and removed to the 
present site of Monona, where they each took up land. Phineas P. Olmsted 
built a log house, the first one in Monona, and in 1849 with a nephew started 
the first general store in the town.' The same year a post-ofl5ce was established 
here, our subject being the first Postmaster, being appointed under Taylor's 
administration. At the end of three years he resigned, locating on the place 
where he resided up to the time of his death. At various times he owned 
several farms and has given to his children about three hundred and thirty 
acres, still retaining a property of about the same area. 

Mr. Olmsted served in various official capacities. In 1841 he was first 
elected Justice of the Peace, serving as such for twelve years, and in 1842 he 
built the first frame house in Monona village, and in 1860 was made County 
Supervisor, holding that place for sixteen years. In 1865 he was elected on 
the Republican ticket as County Representative in the Legislature and has 
filled various minor positions. 

Identified with the interests of Monona for upwards of forty years, the 
founder of the town, building the first frame house and setting in motion 
the arts of trade, there is no one of the old settlers whose death wiU be more 
generally or more sincerely regretted. He was a good man, honest and up- 
right with his fellow-men, a firm and true friend, who was kind, considerate 
and benevolent, following a simplicity of life that was replete with good works. 
In whatever public positions he held the duty performed was thorough 
and painstaking and he served the people on the same lines that he conducted 
his own personal affairs; his influence and his labor were for the best interests 
of the community, with a desire to promote that which he deemed of special 
value and service to the people.

The Rochester Union, in writing up the history of the " oldest inhabi- 
tants " of Monroe Coimty, awards the prize to the venerable Harry Olmsted, 
who emigrated from Connecticut with his father, to Genesee County, in 1794, 
he being then eight years old. Mr. Olmsted now resides in the town of Greece,, 
and is 72 years of age, still active and vigorous. The following script was 
received by Mr. Olmsted from Eli Granger in 1799, in payment for an ox. 
The payment was made in Onondaga salt, and the quantity which he gave 
for the ox could now be purchased for $4. Salt has fallen in value since those 
days, while cattle are, perhaps, somewhat dearer: 

Northampton, 4th April, 1799. 

For value rec'd, I promise to pay Jeremiah Olmsted, or order, three barrels- 
of good merchantable Onondaga salt, each barrel to contain five bushels, and 
fifty-six pounds to the bushel. Said salt to be delivered at the landing below 
Genesee Falls, in the Month of June next. 

Witness my hand: Eli Granger.

" The winter that I was six years old my father Eliphalet, and brother, 
Stephen, went to a nearby field to get some dry wood for kindling from some 
pine stumps and while there father dropped dead. A few years after his death 
my mother married Jacob Handy and lived at Corinth, where she died in March, 
1867. During the time she lived with Jacob Handy his house was destroyed 
by fire and my father's Bible and records were burned at that time. In 1849 
my brother, Eleazer, visited my mother but I, being away at work, did not 
see him. Late in the fall of 1850 I decided to go West and see my brother 
Eleazer, then living near Jefferson, N. Y. (now Watkins). When I reached 
his home we certainly did not know each other as he was married and gone 
before I was born, and we had never seen each other. I stayed with him dur- 
ing that winter, and the next summer (1851) I worked in Reading, now in 
Schuyler County, for a man named Chapman. In the fall I returned to Sara- 
toga County and was married Jan. 1, 1852. As I did not get my pay from Mr. 
ChapmanT went back in the summer of 1852 to collect the same and it was the 
last I saw of my brother Eleazer." — From a private letter.

Cayuga, N. Y. 

Lucius F. Olmsted was born at Benson, Vermont, March 10th, 1796. 
His mother died when he was but two years of age, and at the age of eight he 
removed to Shelborn, in the same State, where during his stay he worked 
summers and went to school winters, thus not only supporting himself but 
securing an education which fitted him for the occupation of school teaching. 
In the spring of 1814 he removed to Cayuga Bridge, N. Y., and resded there 
until April, 1835. March 9, 1822, he was married to Emeline Willard of that 
place, and they lived happily together for nearly fifty years, she surviving him 
and mourning his departure. Mr. Olmsted was converted under the preach- 
ing of Rev. Medad Pomeroy, and was a member of the Presbyterian Church 
from the year 1830, and has since that time been a subscriber to The Evan- 
gelist. In April, 1835, he removed to Lakeville, Livingston County, residing 
there until the spring of 1858, when he made his home at Geneseo. Since I 
have known him he has been a member of the 2d Presbyterian Church of this 
place and one of its chief pecuniary supporters. He always gave liberally for 
the support of the Gospel at home and abroad and when called upon for his 
own Church support, always said, " Put me down for one-tenth of what you 
need." — From private letter.

Dr. Hawley Olmsted grad. Yale Medical School 1861 ; was a Surgeon in 
the Civil War, New York Vols., and was mustered out with rank of Lieut. Col. 
In the year 1839, he was persuaded to remove from Wilton to New Haven 
and resuscitate the Hopkins Gramniar School, an institution older than the 
College, to which it was chiefly tributary, but from various causes had greatly 
languished. Dr. Olmsted gave ten years of his life to this work, which he was 
wont to speak of as his best years. As a tribute to his success in this and other 
departments of letters and sound scholarship the Corporation of Yale Col- 
lege, in the year 1862, conferred upon him the honorary title of Doctor of Laws. 

"Although never seeking public olHce, he was often sought to fill positions 
where mature judgment was most needed, as also where an 'unswerving 
supreme fidelity to Truth and Right' was respected. He was a Member of 
the Legislature for Wilton in 1825, '26, '28, '29, and a Senator from New Haven 
in 1853. As Chairman of the Committee on Education in 1826 and '28, he 
presented reports on Common School Education which attracted no little 
attention at the time and which forty years have shown to be singularly 
prophetic. 

"He died while he was addressing at his own house the literary club, with 
which, for more than twenty years, he had been accustomed to meet weekly 
for the discussion of some great moral and practical questions. Said an eye- 
witness: ' He had just completed a most thorough, logical and, as his com- 
panions felt, richly beautiful argument. It was, indeed, the beautiful death 
of the Christian soldier with his armor on, the disciple going out of the earthly 
service to the " Well Done" of the Lord.' 

"He was a man of medium height, stoutly built, very erect, and dignified 
in his carriage, but courteous and affable in his address. He governed his 
school and won the lasting respect of his pupUs to a remarkable degree with 
little apparent effort." — From "Anniversary of Wilton Cong. Ch.," p. 54.

"In the last week of the third session of the forty-sixth Congress, a bill was 
passed to pay to Mrs. Eliza Upright, of Rockford, Iowa, a pension at the rate 
per month now allowed to parents for the loss of children upon whom such 
parents were dependent. The proposition for pension is based upon grounds 
different from any which have ever been brought before Congress. Mrs. 
Upright, now seventy-four years of age, has never appeared at the pension 
office in the character of an applicant, and in 'the language of the report of 
the house committee, " the action in bringing her before Congress seems to 
have been prompted by a desire to do her honor, as well as to testify in a 
substantial manner the appreciation of the government." 

The facts are that Mrs. Upright, formerly Mrs. Merchant, of Manchester, 
Illinois, sent ten sons to the volunteer army during the war for the Union, 
and one son to the regular army after the close of the war. One of the ten 
sons serving in the Union army died in service, one was killed in action, one 
was killed by an accidental discharge of a cannon, two were promoted from 
privates to commissioned officers, and these with five others, were honorably 
discharged at the close of the war. 

This is an extraordinary record, and the more notable because neither 
the mother nor her sons sought either notoriety or recognition from the govern- 



268 Olmsted Family Genealogy 

ment. The case was first brought to the notice of Congress in February, 1879, 
by the following letter from the Hon. George W. McCrary, then Secretary 
of War: 

War Department, Washington, Feb. 11, 1879.' 
To Hon. N. C. Deering, House of Rept. 

Sir: I have considered the petition of Mrs. Eliza Upright, of Butler County, 
Iowa, praying for the discharge from military service of her son, Norman M. 
Merchant, Battery B., 4th artillery, which petition was presented by you, 
and is concurred in by numerous citizens. The discharge of this soldier is 
asked by the petitioner, who says that she is seventy-four years old, on the 
ground that she had ten sons in the, Union army during the Civil War, and the 
one above named, her eleventh and youngest son, has served for over five 
years in the regular army. She furnishes the names of her sons and a state- 
ment of the organizations in which they served:

Mr. Olmsted was one of the pioneer settlers of Illinois. He started for 
the West from New York City for the first time in August, 1835, and was, at 
different times, a Miller and a Merchant. He was extremely fond of music 
and, when a young man, belonged to the Handel and Haydn Society, of 
New York City. He played both the flute and the cello, and for a long time 
was first tenor of the choir of the Congregational Church (First Church of 
Christ) of Galesburg, of which he was a member. He was a man of a 
deeply religious nature, of medium height, thick set, with hazel eyes and 
dark hair. 

Mrs. Emily (Ward) Olmsted started from Bergen, N. Y., about the middle 

of April, 1837, for Illinois, in company with, and under the guardianship of 

Mr. John C. Ward; b. Sept. 6, 1800; d. June 18, 1868, and his wife Mary 

(Kellogg) Ward; b. Apr. 17, 1808; d. Jan. 21, 1892; friends, neighbors and

Henry Joy Ward. The journey was made in a covered wagon, and it was 

about the first of June, when they reached their destination, Geneseo, Henry 

County, 111. Here it was that she met Silas Olmsted, Jr., whom she married. 

They settled near Monmouth, 111., where he had a flour rmll. Here they 

lived until after the birth of three daughters, then moved to Galesburg, where 

their fourth child, a son, was born. Emily Ward Olmsted was for some 

twenty years the leading soprano in the " First Church " choir, to which 

church she also belonged. She was somewhat below middle height, with blue 

eyes and dark hair.

Lemuel Gregory Olmsted graduated in 1830 at the Rensselaer Institute, 
a scientific school located at Troy, N. Y., under the charge of Prof. Amos 
Eaton. For a short time he filled the position of Prof, of Chemistry and 
Natural History in Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pa. He afterwards pursued 
his studies at Union College, Schenectady, N. Y., where he graduated in the 
Class of 1834, and continued his preparations for the ministry at Princeton 
and Allegheny Theo. Seminaries. He was ordained in the Presbyterian 
ministry in 1837 and entered upon active service. A considerable portion of 
his life was spent in classical and scientific teaching. In 1864, he received the 
degree of LL. D. from Hanover College, Ind. He spent some years in Europe 
in the pursuit of his favorite studies, and travelled extensively through the 
several states of the Union, engaged in rock and mineral examinations. He 
was a frequent contributor to scientific periodicals and his collections in illus- 
tration of all branches of Natural History were quite extensive. His last 
active service in the ministry was Chaplain in the U. S. Army. Upon the 
close of the Civil War, he removed to the farm in Moreau, Saratoga County, 
which was formerly his father's residence, and there pursued his researches, 
principally in archeology, officiating as occasion offered in preaching and 
lecturing in the surrounding villages and country. He was buried in the 
family burying ground on the farm.

Rev. John Wesley Olmsted, Editor of the Watchman, the organ of the 
Baptists of New England, died in Manchester-by-the-Sea, aged seventy- 
four years. Mr. Olmsted had been in ill health for some months, having 
never recovered from a severe attack of la e;rippe. He was born in Saratoga 
County, N. Y., His parents were members of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church. When he was converted, his convictions led him to the Baptists. 



Seventh Generation 283 

He attended Johnstown Academy; and the honorary degree of Master 
of Arts was conferred upon him in 1855 by Yale College and that 
of Doctor of Divinity by Rochester University in 1863. His first pastorate 
was at Little Falls, N. Y., in 1837, where he remained five years. He 
then became Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Chelsea, remaining there 
five years. In 1846 he became Editor of the Christian Reflector of Boston, 
which in 1848 was consolidated with the Christian Watchman, under the title 
of the Watchman and Reflector. Dr. Olmsted remained as the Editor of the 
paper until 1875, when the Christian Era was merged into the Watchman 
and Reflector. In 1876 the title of the paper was changed to the Watchman. 
Dr.Olmsted was then made Associate Editor with Rev. Dr. Franklin Johnson 
and Rev. Dr. George C. Lorimer. In 1877 Dr. Olmsted retired from the 
editorial staff with health somewhat broken. After a period of rest he 
established in New York City a weekly Journal, the Watch Tower, which he 
conducted for three years, at the end of which time he relinqmshed it to take 
his former position as Editor of the Watchman. This position he held until 
failing health compelled him to retire from active duties, and he became 
Editor emeritus. — Boston Post.

Jesse S. Olmsted was born in Ridgefield, Conn. When he was quite young 
his father removed to Albany, N. Y., where young Olmsted was placed for 
awhile under the instruction of Dr. Knott. When quite a young man he was 
employed as bookkeeper in a large mercantile establishment in his native 
city. Here he became a thorough accountant and took his first lessons in 
mercantile transactions. In the fall of 1817 Mr. Olmsted, in company with 
his brother, Geo. G., brought from Albany, N. Y., to Lower Sandusky, 0., 
the first stock of goods that rose to the dignity of a mercantile transaction. 
It consisted of a general assortment of dry goods, groceries, hardware, crockery, 
liquors and wines and amounted upon the invoices at Albany to the handsome 
sum of $27,000. This firm of brothers also brought with them carpenters 
to build a store and coopers to make barrels to be used at the fisheries located 
in that place. 

The workmen — eleven in all — together with nails, glass and the hardware 
necessary for their intended building were transported from Albany to Buffalo 
by land, thence by water to Sandusky. The pine lumber was brought from 
Buffalo by water. The amount paid for transportation of the stock of mer- 
chandise was $4,400. Immediately upon their arrival the brothers com- 
menced the erection of their store. It was the second frame structure built 
in Lower Sandusky. Its dimensions were 60 by 30 feet, two stories high, with 
dormer windows and projecting beams with pulley blocks attached in front 
for raising goods. It was considered a mammoth building and for many 
years was a kind of commercial emporium, the stock of goods in it being 
greater than any between Detroit and Cleveland and Urbana and the Lake. 



Seventh Generation 293 

Mr. Olmsted's first trade was chiefly with the Indians of the Wyandotte, 
Seneca, and Ottawa tribes. Soon after he and his brother opened business, 
they received in trade and shipped in one season 20,000 muskrat skins worth 
25 cents apiece, 8,000 coon skins worth 50 cents each, 200 bear skins at $5.00 
each, 2,000 deer skins at 50 cents each and 150 otter skins at $5.00 each. In 
1820 the Olmsted Bros, sent the first pork from Sandusky eastward. It con- 
sisted of 150 barrels and was marketed at Montreal. The cost here was $2,000 
for the lot but was sold for considerably less. 

In 1825 the firm dissolved and Mr. Olmsted went into business at Ty- 
mochter but in 3 years returned to Lower Sandusky where he remained the rest 
of his life. The first wheat shipped East from this point (a lot of 600 bushels) 
was sent by Mr. Olmsted in the year 1830. It cost him 40 cents per bushel 
in Lower Sandusky and sold in Buffalo at 60 cents. Transportation was then 
so high that this advance of 20 cents per bushel was consumed in expenses. 
He made nothing, therefore, by the operation. 

His marriage license was the second issued after the organization of the 
county. He held for a time the position of County Treasurer, also that of 
Associate Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, all the duties of which offices 
he performed to the entire satisfaction of the people.

N. Y. Vols.; assigned to the command of the 1st Brigade, 2d Div., 2d Army 
Corps in Army of the Potomac, Nov. 4, 1864; served to the end of the war, 
July 12, 1865. Gen. Olmsted received a Brevet promotion of Brigadier 
General for gallant and meritorious conduct at Richmond, Va., in 1862, and at 
Glendale, Malvern Hill, Hatcher's Run, and Petersburg, Va. ; was mustered 
out July 12, 1865. In 1889 was Doctor of Medicine at Trinidad, Col. 6780, 
Charles Samuel Dauchy, Albany, N. Y.; b. Sept. 23, 1845. He was 
drowned when nine years of age. 

Captain C. S. Olmsted always had a particular desire to lead the life of a 
sailor. At about sixteen years of age he shipped before the mast, on an out- 
ward bound vessel and, before his return, made the voyage round the world. 
He visited England and witnessed the coronation of King George IV. When 
on his next voyage the crew mutinied and as Mr. Olmsted was the only 



294 Olmsted Family Genealogy 

member of the crew who understood navigation, the sailors expressed a 
desire to make him captain. Upon the night before the mutiny, he made 
his escape from the vessel and returned home. Two months later the ship 
was brought into port, the captain having been murdered by the crew. The 
mutineers were afterwards tried, found guilty and every man of them hung. 
Mr. Olmsted was for many years an Alderman of the 3d Ward of Albany, 
N. Y., and also Supervisor. When Hon. William H. Seward was Governor 
of the State, he was one of the chiefs of the Whig party. He was also Chap- 
lain of the Burgesses Corps, and with them participated in the now almost 
forgotten Helderburg Anti-rent war. He was for some years connected with 
Isaac Newton, William Adams, the Monteiths, the Schuylers, and other 
forwarders. At that time he was captain of the sloop De Witt Clinton, the 
largest sloop then plying on the Hudson River. At a later period he was 
captain of the Henry Eckford, a passenger and towing steamer between Albany 
and New York. In his later years he resided with his son-in-law. Captain 
Tupper, of Albany.

Mr. Olmsted came to Stamford in the fall of 1851 from Ridgefield, his 
native place, and studied law for three years with ex-Gov. Chas. Hawley. 
Being admitted to the Bar in 1854, he at once stepped into a large practice. 
Mr. Olmsted's political career began when he entered the legal profession, 
and he has taken the stump in every campaign since before the war. As a 
member of the Democratic State Committee he was noted as an organizer, 
and he was regularly a delegate to State and other conventions until he was 
appointed District Attorney by the Superior and Supreme Court judges. 
Notwithstanding his political activity, Mr. Olmsted has never consented to 
run for of&ce except as the Democratic candidate for the Legislature, where 
he sat in 1871. Judge of Probate Court, 1854-1859.

ware Ave., Buffalo, N. Y., by the Rev. Thomas R. Slicer, Bula Hubbell; b. 
at Leon, N. Y., June 27, 1873; dau. of (Dr.) Alvin Allace and Evangeline

Conn., to notify Rev. John Davenport that agents (Kellond and Kirk) of 
the King were seeking for the Regicides or Judges (Whalleyand Goffe), 
then hiding at his house, and that it was due to the efforts of John Meigs 
that their lives were saved. 

Prof. Olmsted received his first instruction in the schools of Philadelphia, 
Pa., and Washington, D. C, but chiefly at Galesburg, 111., where he later en- 
tered Knox College. After completing the Sophomore year, he entered 
Cornell Univ., where he grad. in 1891, with the degree of Ph. B. The summer 
after graduation he went to Europe for the first time. 

Since then he has been a frequent traveller in Europe, where he has de- 
voted himself particularly to the study of the Romance Languages. From 
1891 to 1893 he was Master of French in Cascadilla School, Ithaca, N. Y. In 
1893 he became Instructor of French in Cornell University, which position 
he held until his marriage. He spent the year 1895-1896 with his wife in 
travel and in study in Europe. He pursued post-graduate studies at the Sor- 
bonne. College de France, Ecole des Chartes, Paris, and at Cornell, 1893-

he was Vice-President, 1908-09, the National Geographical Society, and the 
Beta Theta Pi fraternity; also of the Town and Gown Club, the Country 
Club, and the Savage Club, of Ithaca, N. Y. ; as well as of the Hispano- Ameri-
