PREFACE. 



It is not the purpose in these pages to enter upon a defence or 
justification of the study of genealogy — those who are fond of declar- 
ing that they do not know their grandparents' names and never felt 
any interest to inquire, will hardly read this book at all. 

Equally remote is it from our thought to boast of our pedigree, as 
springing from the titled or wealthy classes of the past. The various 
families herein mentioned are representatives of that sturdy race 
which peopled New England in the 17th century, and in the 19th 
has carried abroad a reputation for independence of thought, industry 
and general intelligence, that is quite its own. 

We may even claim that a good share of the strength, the virtues 
and the courage of this ancestry is alive to-day in the present repre- 
sentatives of these families, and perhaps this is as truly a source of 
pride as any we could name. 

This publication marks the completion of a work begun over ten 
years ago, the expression of an interest awakened long before by 
talks with my father, whose love for his family was ever deep and 
strong. While it is true that for much of this period the material 
has lain neglected, yet the purpose has never been abandoned. 

The gathering of data has a fascination in itself, though the 
amount of labor involved is comprehensible only to those who have 
tried it for themselves. And the meeting with new found kindred, 
leading in some instances to lasting friendship, is perhaps the greatest 
reward of such service. 

Much of the information here given, especially that relating to the 
earlier generations, was learned from lips now forever silent. The 
very meeting and converse with these elders has been an inspiration. 



viii DESCENDANTS OF ELEAZEK FLAGG. 

Ill plan tl)c present work differs from the ordinary family history 
in that it is not concerned with any one family name, but carries out 
to the present in every line the descendants of one 18th century 
couple. 

From the outset tlic purpose has been to avoid what is found in some 
genealogies, mere lists of names and dates (and occasionally even the 
latter are largely wanting). As far as possible a brief sketch is 
inserted of each member of the family. Naturally, on the other hand, 
it has been quite out of the question to admit extended biographies. 

There has been a special effort to bring the record in each case 
down to the year 1902. Out of over 400 living adults, not over 
half a dozen have failed to be reached with inquiries. 

In general the family has shown a commendable pride and inter- 
est ; sometimes after vexatious delay ; while in a few cases there has 
been an utter neglect to notice my queries. Xo known means have 
been left untried to insure completeness. 

Regarding the ancestry of those who married into the family in 
early generations, explanation is due that I have been able to spare 
but little time for this work, and have accepted, generally without 
verification, what seemed the best authorities. 

A few words about the scheme of arrangement : each family 
(parents and children) is given a separate Araliic numeral, beginning 
with " 1 " for Eleazer and Iluldah (Chandler) Flagg and extending 
to "310". First under each number comes the fatiier's full name, 
while the name of the parent, whether father or mother, who is b}' 
birth a member of tiie family, is printed in heavy type, followed by a 
superior figure indicating the generation. The children are placed 
last, with Roman numerals denoting order of birth. When a child 
has no issue (whether or not mai'ried), full record is inserted in this 
place ; those having children are briefly noticed here, and receive a 
special Arabic number in tlie margin, and full entry farther on in 
order. 

This enables one to readily follow down to all descendants of a 
given person. For tracing back to ancestors, the tables on pages 
3-7 are employed, which at the same time show relationsiiip to other 
lines. To facilitate their use, reference is given by number to the 
specific table ; and for generations below the fittli, the descent from 
an ancestor in that generation. 



Grateful acknowledgment is due to those who have manifested 
special interest in the work and have been at considerable trouble to 
help me : — among the older members of the family, first to my be- 
loved father, whose interest and encouragement formed one of the 
strongest reasons for undertaking it; to Mrs. Rebecca (Hunt) 
Roberts, Dr. Otis F. Presbrey, Mrs. Louisa (Goddard) Knowlton, 
Edmund S. Holbrook, Esq., and Rev. James Tufts, Jr., all of whom 
have since passed away. 

Of those still living, I am under special obligations to my cousin 
and brother-in-law, Walter X. Waters, wlio has gathered most of the 
material for the line of Huldah (Flagg) AVaters ; also to Mr. 
Jason Waters, Mrs. Blanche M. (Stone) Putnam, Miss Lurentha 
M. Hawks, Miss Gertrude E. Flagg, Miss Theodora Rust, Mrs. 
Martha M. (Goddard) Seymour, Dr. Edward Goddard, Mrs. 
Nancy G. (Brooks) DoUiver, Mrs. Jennie A. (Brooks) Seaver, my 
aunt Mrs. Maria O. (Flagg) Hunt, Miss Ellen M. Fiske, Mr. 
William B. Fiske, Miss Mary Newton and many others.

ABBREVIATIONS. 

The usual abbreviations are used : b. for born ; co. for company or 
county ; d. for died ; dau. for daughter ; m. for married ; rem. for removed ; 
res. for resided or residence ; s. for son ; «. p. for without issue {sine prole) ; 
unm. for unmarried. Where others have been employed it is thought they 
will explain themselves. 

When no state is mentioned, Massachusetts is to be understood, unless 
from the context some other one is clearlv indicated. 



TABLES 

Showing the second to fifth generations of Descendants of Eleazer and 
Hnldah Flagg, in each of the five branches. 

Note that these charts contain only those living to-day, or who have 
descendants now living. In the family history which follows, each person 
is located by reference to one of these tables, or, if below the fifth genera- 
tion, by tracing back to an ancestor in that generation. 

The serial numbers used in the body of the work are given in parenthe- 
ses, and married names of women are italicized.

FIRST GENERATION. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



Eleazer Flagg,* son of Eleazer and Deborah (Tompkins) 
Flagg, and the third of the name in direct line, was born in Con- 
cord, the home of his father and grandfather, 23 October, 1709. 
In his time the surname was in process of transformation from the 
earher Flegg, the form found (with variations, Fleg, Flee, &c.) 
on the English records back as far as the Norman conquest or 
before, and uniformly used in this country the first two or three 
generations. He himself almost invariably employed the form Flagg, 
as the other members of the family have since his time. His early 
days were doubtless spent at the ancestral home in Concord, though 
we have no definite record on this point, or of the exact date of his 
coming to HassanamiscOjf of which town his father Eleazer Flagg, 
2d, was one of the original forty proprietors. Family tradition has 
it that he was there in 1728, the year of the purchase from the 
Indians. At first a settler on his father's lands, as were his younger 
brothers Robert and Nathaniel at the same or a little later period, 
he became a landholder himself in 1731, as shown by a deed on file 
in the "Worcester County Court House, of which the following is a 
partial copy : 

To all People to whom this present Deed of Gift Shall Come Greeting 
Know ye that I Eleazer Flagg of Concord in the County of Middle'^ : in 
the province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England Yeoman For and

Thomas Stratton j" The within named Eleazer Flagg person- 

ally appearing acknowledged the within Instrument to be his act 
and deed Before me John Flint Just, peace. 

The land conveyed in this deed comprised the 42 acres of the 
18th lot of the Ist division among the proprietors (3 May, 1728) 
and a part of the 30 acres of the 2d division (21-22 !Xov. 1728), 
as entered in the manuscript volume of " Records of the Proprie- 
tors of Hassanamisco." This estate was situated in the Merriam 
District, eastward of the centre of the town, occupying part of the 
eastern slope of Chestnut Hill and meadow land beyond. 

There is now on exhibition in the rooms of the Worcester Society 
of Antiquity a large wooden bowl, hewn from a tree on this hill by 
our ancestor, in 1732, four years after the original settlement. It 
has been handed down in the family from that day to this, being 
inherited by the writer from his fatlier in 1900. 

In 1745 a substantial farmhouse was erected; the homestead 
back to which each member of the family mentioned in this book 
can trace his line. Tradition says that it replaced an older structui-e 
of logs, and that the new building was the work of another Flagg, 
doubtless Robert, Nathaniel or James, brothers of Eleazer, ail 
living in the neighborhood. 

After standing for a century the house was torn down in 1845 by 
the widow of Joseph Flagg who erected another more modern one 
on the spot (since removed). A little south of the old site Peter 
Hunt, w-ho was the next owner of the fai-m, built a substantial 
brick dwelling which is still standing. The only likeness known of 
the old house is a painting made about 1845, by Mrs. J. O. Bur- 
leigh for Mrs. Maria O. Hunt, from which oui" frontispiece is copied. 

The early settlers of Hassanamisco were not unmindful of relig- 
ious interests and duties ; services seem to have been held very 
early, and 28 Dec. 1731, a church was organized (parent of the 
present First Congregational [Unitarian] and Evangelical Congre- 
gational societies). Among the 20 signers of the original covenant 
we find the name of Eleazer Flagg, and in connection therewith the 
following certificate, tlie regular formula of the day :

Scandall And (in charity) is a person meet for comuniou w. ye

FIRST GENERATION. 13 

The settlement of Worcester had preceded that of Grafton by a 
few years, and prominent among the early residents was Capt. Ben- 
jamin Flagg, an own cousin of our Eleazer's fatlier. Worcester 
County was formed in 1731, and its second sheriff was this Capt. 
Flagg, who held the position 1743-1751, and one of whose acts 
was to appoint his Grafton kinsman a deputy. The following is a 
copy of a paper in possession of the compiler : 
Worcester ss 

To all to whom these presents shall come

the Test or declaration in said act &c. & took the oath of office to 
a Dept Sheriff belonging 

John Chandler ") thereto appointed 
John Rice | by the Gov 

From a memorandum book, still preserved, and other papers, it 
appears that our ancestor performed the duties of the position to a 
considerable extent in neighboring towns, serving writs, warrants, 
etc. 

The Flagg place in the Merriam District lay on the main road 
between southern Worcester Co., and Boston and the towns on the 
coast. There is in existence a petition presented to the " Justices of 
the General sessions of the peace for the County of Worcester," 
Aug. 175(3, praying that Eleazer Flagg might be licensed to act as 
a public innholder, signed by Cornelius Putnam, Richard Waters* 
and 42 others, resident in Sutton and towns about there. It is be- 
lieved that such public house was kept for a few years. 

His elder son, also named Eleazer, was pi-ovided with an estate 
on George Hill in Grafton, and left home early, dying a young 
man ; but the younger son, Samuel, remained with his parents and 
took the farm when his father was too old to manage it. The old 
gentleman was very infirm in his last years; after the marriage of

Eleazcr Flagg married at Concord, 28 Sept. 1731, Huldah 
Chandler,* daughter of Samuel and Dorcas (Buss) Chandler; 
born Concord, 5 Jidy, 1709. It is probable that she also was a 
child of one of Grafton's original forty proprietors, though iiere, as 
in her husband's case, the fact that father and son bore the same 
name and were not in any way distinguished in the records, make 
it possible that her brother Samuel Jr. was the one mentioned as 
proprietor, as he certainly was the one actually interested in the 
settlement.

SECOND GENERATION. 



SECOND geneeatio:n'. 



Stephen Waters, son of Richard* and Anne (Holman) Wa- 
ters, was born in West Sutton, 13 Apr. 1735. His father, Richard 
Waters, Jr., set off to him a portion of the estate, southeast of his 
own homestead. In 1757, according to the History of Sutton, the 
young man erected upon it the house to wliich he brought his bride, 
Huldah Flagg of Grafton, five years later, and which has been the 
Waters home from that day to this, now owned by his great-grand- 
eon, Samuel Nathan Waters ; this same land having been handed 
down from father to son from 1723. Stephen, with his father and 
brothers, made many trips to Boston to sell their produce. This 
long drive of forty miles meant good horses and early starts. The 
best road led through Grafton by the house of Eleazer Flagg, 
where they often stopped for refreshment for man and beast. So 
here Stephen met Huldah. He was a strong, large boned man and 
she was rather small and delicate. 

Like others of his family, Stephen Waters was a great cultivator 
of apples and manufactured cider in considerable quantities. His 
orchards, stUl bearing fruit and showing remarkable growth, on the 
rocky and steep hillside, bear evidence of years of hard work to 
transform the primeval forest into the largest and best apple orchards 
in the region. Being a Free-WUl Baptist, he did not join the close 
communion Baptists in Sutton, whose elder for many years was his 
brother Samuel Waters. He died at W. Sutton, 10 Jan. 1819. 

He married at Grafton, 19 May, 1762, Huldali Flagg,' born 
at Grafton, 14 Dec. 1732. She was an invalid for many yeai's in 
the latter part of her life ; her husband was often seen going to and 
from the adjoining town of Oxford to boiTOw the chaise of an aris- 
tocratic gentleman, Gen. Davis, to give her a ride. No one in 
town possessed such a vehicle. Mrs. Waters was a very devout 
woman, read her Bible almost constantly in her illness until she be- 
came blind, and then would have her grandchildren, who affection- 
atety called her " Granny," read it to her. She died in West 
Sutton, 24 Jan. 1825.

Eleazer Flagg/ the fourth Eleazer Flagg in direct line, was 
born at Grafton, 12 Nov. 1734. His uncle Nathaniel Flagg of 
Grafton, 6 May,. 1761, conveyed to him a plot of 34 acres and 
50 rods on George Hill, Grafton, undoubtedly part of the original 
share of his grandfather Eleazer Flagg (2d) in 1728. It is evident 
that the purchase of this place for £120 was really his father's act 
and part of the latter's plan of providing for his children. He 
died in Grafton, 10 Feb. 1767. 

The widow was appointed administratrix, and the inventory 
showed a total of £281, Is. lid., including about thirty-five acres of 
land, with buUdings, valued at £146, Ss. 4d. 22 Mar. 1768, the 
Judge of probate allowed her accounts " whereby it appears a Bal- 
lance Eemains in her hands of £75, 18s. 7^1. which she is fur- 
ther to account for & as ye family have been kept together & one of 
ye Ciiildren biit about a month old when ye Dec'' Dyed I allow her 
ye Improvement of ye Real Estate Therefor." In 1772, after the 
marriage of the widow, Joseph Merriam, Jr., was appointed guar- 
dian of the children, and two years later we find him petitioning the 
Governor and General Court, stating that Eleazer Flagg, Jr., left; 
an estate of about 35 acres " which by reason of the inconvenient 
circumstances it now is in will not rent annually for perhaps half so 
much money as the interest of the money said land if sold would fetch 
and as there is two young children heirs thereto for whom petitioner 
is guardian," he prayed authority to sell at once. Permission was 
granted, and accordingly, 11 May, 1776, the place on George HUl 
was sold for £147, 6s. 8d. to Jeduthan Fay of Westboro. Fam- 
ily tradition has it that payment was deferred, and owing to depre- 
ciation of the currency, very little was ever realized by the heirs. 
At least a part of the land with the house later came into possession 
of the Forbush family. 

The children of Eleazer (4th) finally severed their connection 



SECOND GENERATION. Zl 

with Grafton by the sale to their uncle Samuel Flagg, 13 Feb. 
1806, of the five acre lot which came to them by their grandfather 
Flagg's will. The deed is signed by Eleazer Flagg of Conway and 
Isaac and Sarah Dole of Shelburne. 

Eleazer Flagg (4th) married, Concord, 8 Dec. 1763, Sarah 
Chandler,* daughter of James and Mary (Wright) Chandler; bom 
in Concord, 9 Dec. 1742. She married (2d) 31 Mar. 1768, Nath- 
aniel Goddard of Grafton, and removed with him and the children 
to Conway. (She bore him one child, Mary Goddard, baptized in 
Grafton 1 July, 1770, and married to Stephen Billings of Conway.) 
Nathaniel Goddard died 31 Oct. 1815, aged 77. Mrs. Sarah 
(Chandler) Goddard died in Shelburne, 18 April, 1833, in her Olst 
year.

Benjamin Goddard,* son of Benjamin and Mary (Kidder) God- 
dard, was born in Grafton, 4 Nov. 1736. He served as a young 
man in the Old French and Indian war, and the stoiy is told that 
he was sentenced to death because an Indian captive left in his 
charge had escaped ; he was later pardoned. At another time, the 
enemy poisoned the water supply and he and others narrowly es- 
caped death, and suffered long afterward from the effects. During 
the Revolution he was again in service. The state rolls show him 
to have been sergeant in Capt. Aaron Kimball's company of minute 
men. Col. Artemas Ward's regiment, which marched on the alarm 
19 April, 1775, and was discharged 18 May, after four weeks' ser- 
vice. It is probable that he was in other commands during the war, 
and we are informed how during his absence in the army a detach- 
ment of British soldiers took possession of his home and ate or car- 
ried away nearly everything on the place. He built the old Goddard 
house, standing on the road to Westboro, a mile and a half from 
Grafton Centre ; torn down about 1865. 

He was town clerk 1776-90 and 1793-94, selectman various 
years bet^veen 1777 and 1792, justice of the peace for Worcester 
Co. after 1789, and otherwise prominent in local affairs. He died 
in Grafton, 11 Mar. 1806. He married, Grafton, 8 Dec. 1763, 
Mary Flagg,' born Grafton, 19 Mar. 1740; died 6 Apr. 1824.

Samuel Flagg- was born in Grafton, 5 Dec. 1741. He re- 
mained at home with hie parents, and on his father's death in 1771, 
became the owner of the homestead in the Merriam District, Graf- 
ton. Here he spent his whole life, known universally as one of the 
best and most successful farmers in the town. From tlie fact that 
lie manufactured malt in large quantities, he was often kno^vn aa 
"Maltster" Flagg. Of a retiring disposition and without political 
ambition, he never sought public life, nor held offices except those 
in his native town, serving as selectman in 1782, 1801 and 1805. 
In religion, tradition says that he was a Baptist, though his wife was 
a member of the old Congregational church in Grafton Center, where 
he himself often attended and where his children were baptized. 

To quote tlie words of one, George "W. Drury, who in youth was 
his hired man and lived in the family, and who died at 95, "He was 
the best man, take him all in all, that I ever knew." Mr. Flagg 
died in Grafton, 17 Oct. 1822.* He married in Grafton, 28 Dec.

SECOND GENERATION. 23 



Daniel HAYDEN,*sonof Elisha and Lydia (Fairbanks) Hayden, 
was born in Hopkinton, 16 Dec. 1748. He was the owner of con- 
siderable real estate in Grafton, and built and occupied the last house 
on the old Upton road. He and his wife were early membei-s of the 
Baptist church in town where iNIr. Hayden led the singing for many 
years. After the marriage of their daughter Submit in 1807 and 
her removal to Vei-mont, they sold all their property in Grafton the 
next year and bought a farm on Dog River, Berlin, Vt., a mile and 
a half from Montpelier. The purchaser of the home in Grafton was 
Pardon Aldrich, but it was later occupied by Cushman Hayden (not 
related) and so to older residents of Gi'afton still known as the "Hay- 
den place " though now more commonly designated by the name of 
a later occupant, one Leonard. It was the scene of Grafton's most 
noted crime, the murder of Henry Powers by Jonathan Brooks in 
1835. 

The new home of the Haydens in Berlin was considered the best 
farming land in the town and was sold for §18,000 after they left it ; 
is still known as the Hayden form. The old couple were unfortun- 
ately involved in financial misfortune through the business ventiu-es 
of their son John, and were compelled to give up their place. In 
Berlin they identified themselves with the Methodist church. 

Mr. Hayden was of powerful build and could do a man's work at 
80. His grandson James Tufts who knew him in his last years thus 
described him : " A prodigious worker, strong as a giant and spry as 
a fox ; and full of humor and good nature." 

He died in Berhn, Vt., Nov. 1841. He married in Sutton, 9 
June, 1773, Submit Flagg' ; born in Grafton, 5 Sept. 1744; 
after the marriage of the older members of the family, she remained 
on the place witb her brother Samuel and cared for their parents in 
their last years. Was noted in later life for her piety and remark- 
able knowledge of the Bible. She died in Berlin, 14 Mar. 1839.

THIRD GENERATION. 



THIED GENERATION. 



John Waters' [Table I] ; born in W. Sutton, 23 Oct. 1764. 
Like his brothers and sisters he was small and weak in infancy, and 
the story is told how, when he was born, the nurse put him in a two- 
quart pail and shut the cover. Later he developed into a large, 
powerful man, over six feet in height. From his father he inherited 
a large farm ; and devoted himself even more extensively to fruit, so 
that he was reported to have the largest apple orchards in that part of 
Mass. He made much cider — the ground about the house was said 
to be soaked with it. If his grandchildren as babies appeared to 
like the taste of it, he was sure they were Waters babies. The tall 
stone posts, which he split out of the solid rock for gate-posts, and 
which he set in the ground five or six feet, are monuments of his 
untiring energy. He worked until bed-time and was so unused to 
sitting still that he could not keep awake in church. 

Most of the timber used in building the W. Sutton Baptist church 
came from his woodland, and old subscription lists show that he was 
foremost in the support of said church. 

When too old and too rheumatic to stand, he sat in his old arm 
chair (still pi-eserved) and made them bring him wood to saw. And 
in his very last years, when unable to get around without crutches, 
it was his custom to take a stool and establish himself under each of 
his apple trees in turn, and there by means of a hoe and long-handled 
saw loosen the ground and trim the tops till his critical eye was 
suited, when he would gather up his tools and move on to the next. 

As he had previously provided for his son Stephen, at his death 
the farm was equally divided between Nathan and Richard, the 
younger sons. He died in W. Sutton, 19 Oct. 1847. Married lst> 
Sutton, 25 Nov. 1790, Huldah Howard, daughter Capt. John and 
Huldah (Sibley) Howard; born in Oxford, 23 June, 1768 ; died in

Daniel Hunt, son John and Kezia ("Darling) Hunt of Glocester, 
K. I., born probably in Burrillville, R. I., 1751. Was a farmer, 
and after his third marriage, about 1804, bought the Ebenezer 
Waters place in W. Sutton, adjacent to the home of his father-in- 
law, Stephen Waters, and previously tlie property of the latter's 
f\ither, Kiehard. He held it but a short time, and the estate later 
passed into the hands of the Bullard family, which still has it. From 
W. Sutton, Mr. Hunt removed to Douglas where he held consider- 
able land and built a sawmill. While here he left the Baptist church 
to which he had previously belonged, and joined the Quakers. About 
1808, removed to Providence, R. I., to go into the retail grocery 
business witii his brother Seth, but his plans failed through the 
dishonesty of the man to whom he had sold his Douglas property. 
Died in Providence, R. I., 30 Oct. 1810. Married Ist^ Patty Soutli-

ii. Rebecca, b. Douglas, 28 Dec. 1805. Wliile in her " teens " she 
joined her mother's church, the Baptists, but in 1835 united 
with the Friends. The same year, when her husband went 
out to Ohio to look the ground over, she remained to care for 
her brothers children, and in removing the following year to 
the new home, took them along and kept them till he remarried 
in 1841. She was always a warm friend of the Indians, and in 
184'J-51, while Mr. Jenks was temporarily in New England, 
she acted as matron of a girls' school among the Shawuees, 
about ten miles from the present Kansas City. And in 1869, 
when her second husband. Dr. Roberts, received appointment 
as Indian agent, he chose to serve among the Shawuees that 
she might be near " her children " as she called them. 

She was a remarkable woman, and had she received the bene- 
fits of more education in youth, must have taken her place among 
the leading spirits of her time. With New England thrift she 
had laid aside some property, and it was her pleasure in her last 
years to help those in need. After Dr. Roberts' death she re- 
sided in Oskaloosa, la., with her neice Mrs. Coburn and a step- 
daughter Mrs. Hambleton, save for the years 1893-!!>5 when

George Hill, Grafton, and on his mother's second marriage to Na- 
thaniel Goddard he undoubted!}' became a member of the latter's 
household and removed with the family to Conway in the early 
" seventies." There is a vague fomily tradition that as a child, he was 
in or near Lexington on the 19th of Api-il, 1775, and was a witness of 
the stirring events of that day ; and it is not unlikely that he was 
with his mother's family in the neighborhood of Concord. 

He learned the trade of a cabinet maker, but sustained an acci- 
dental injury which prevented his following it. Was all his life a 
farmer in Conway, which at the beginning of the last century was 
one of the most populous towns in western Mass. Died in Conway,

Children, all born in West Sutton : 

i. Jason, b. 9 Oct. 1824. After leaving school he was for several 
years engaged in teacliing singing. Becoming interested in the 
anti-slavery movement, his contributions to the press in the 
years preceding the Civil war attracted the attention of the 
thinking public. Although not seeking or expecting oflice he 
was elected to the General Court for 1862-63 and again 1863- 
64. Early in his first session, the Military committee unani- 
mously reported a bill appropriating $500,000 for the purchase 
of small arms for the state troops, limiting choice to the old 
Springfield pattern. Mr. Waters moved an amendment that 
said arms should be " of such pattern as the Governor and 
Council shall deem best adapted to the use for which it is to be 
appUed." This amendment was lost in the lower house, but 
its author called the matter to the attention of influential sena- 
tors, with the result that the Senate inserted it in the bill. On 
its return to the House for concurrence the member from Sut-

ton, on permission from the chair, introduced a number of 
breech loading rifles and proceeded to demonstrate by actual 
experiment their immense superiority. This direct proof, 
backed up by extracts from letters of the fighting generals at 
the front, carried the day. The House accepted the Senate 
amendment, a committee was appointed to investigate the mat- 
ter, and the Spencer repeating rifle was chosen. Thus through 
the vigilance and pertinacity of the Sutton representative, 
Massachusetts enjoys the distinction of placing in the hands of 
her soldiers a weapon superior to any then in use. 

Some years after the Civil war, Mr. Waters became editor of 
the Fall River Daily Times. His health being impaired by 
the confinement and hard work, he traveled for several com- 
mercial houses, visiting various parts of the United States and 
Canada, and actuig as correspondent for a prominent New 
England journal. For the last twenty years he has resided at 
West Sutton, where he is known as one of the town's most 
public spirited citizens ; especially is his influence known and 
felt in all pertaining to education, unm.

Samuel Warren, son of Levi and Anna (Nichols) "Warren, 
was born in Litchfield, Herkimer Co., N. Y., 28 Oct. 1797. At 
the age of ten, he was left fatherless, and three years later walked 
above 100 miles to Jefferson Co., N. Y., to some relatives, where 
he found a home for his mother. Speaking in later life of the trials 
of his early years, he was wont to say that he had a large penny 
which he always kept in his pocket, so that no one could say he was 
" not worth a cent," but it was all he had many times. In 1817 he 
removed to York, Livingston Co., N. Y., where he had in the 
preceding year purchased 33 acres of land. Upon this he built a 
log dwelling and the first saw-mill in that part of the town. Here 
he planted an extensive vineyard on the banks of the stream, and 
turned his attention largely to horticulture. In 1832, he began the 
manufacture of pure wine for medicinal and sacramental purjioses. 
The product, wliich was 20 gallons the first year, in 1858 amounted 
to 3400 gallons, and had won a reputation from the Atlantic to the 
Pacific. The last six years of his life he was entirely helpless, but 
the mind was clear to the last. He died in York, 14 Sept. 1862. 
He married in York, N. Y., 30 Nov. 1826, Sarah Flagg' [Ta-

Samuel Benjamin Flagg" [Table IV.] ; born at the old 
homestead, Grafton, 6 Aug. 1828. Left fatherless at thirteen, he 
resolved to use his patrimony in preparing himself for life's work, 
going away to school first at Bolton, and later at Leicester Academy 
and Quaboag Seminary, Warren. On finishing his preparatory 
studies in 1846, he entered the freshman class at Brown University, 
where he was graduated A.B. in 1850. 

Hampered in choice of fv profession by a vocal trouble, he turned 
to medicine, studying with Dr. Henry Parker of his native place 
and attending courses of lectures at Vermont Medical School, 
Woodstock, and Berkshire Medical Institution, Pittsfield. At the 



bo DESCENDANTS Of ELEAZEK FLAGG. 

latter school he received tlie degree ]M.D. in 1854, and began the 
practice of his profession in Boston. 

At length a successful course of treatment for his voice left him 
free to follow natural inclination, and he entered the ileadville 
Theological School at Mcadville, Penn. At the completion of the 
course here in 1858 he began his real life work in the Unitarian 
ministry, going first to Kalamazoo, ilich., where under his efforts 
a church was organized. 

After remaining six years and seeing the society well established, 
he returned to his native New England, where he held the following 
pastorates : "Waltham, 1865-69, Sandwich, 1869-70, Bernardston, 
1873-84, Bridgewater, 1884-85, Green Harbor, 1887-91, Dix- 
field, Maine, 1891-92, Sandwich, a second time, 1893-98. On 
resigning from his last charge, in gratification of an oft-expressed 
wish he returned to end his days in his native town. Died in 
Grafton 16 Nov. 1900. 

In his makeup were found the best characteristics of the old New 
England stock — a high sense of honor, lack of ostentation, and a 
sturdy independence that never accepted any teaching, religious, 
political or other, because it was labeled orthodox, and never feared 
to stand alone. That reverence for authority which will palliate or 
uphold injustice, found in him no advocate, and the question of 
right was ever one in which the personality or status of the parties 
weighed nothing at all. 

He was a lover of nature — long rambles over hill and forest 
were his delight ; and the fiirm training of boyhood left its triice in 
a fondness for outdoor country life. 

A modest man, he never took the place in his profession to which 
his abilities entitled him ; all self advertisement and thiit striving 
after popularity, which is so much in evidence even in the pulpit 
to-day, were equally abhorrent to him. 

In his religious nature, the most marked peculiarity was his de- 
votional fervor ; in the words of a brother minister, " Some one has 
said that a Methodist heart and a Unitarian head in the Same person 
would make the best kind of a Christian ; Mr. Flagg had them 
both." 

"While ever active in the interest of his church, it was as no mere 
sectarian ; everywhere he was on closest terms with the ministers 
of other faiths, and especially in his last years nothing interested 
him more than the signs of growing charity and co-operation be- 
tween denominations, a movement he had no email share in pro- 
moting. 

He married in Kalamazoo, Mich., 29 Dec. 1869, Anna Bigelow 
Allcott, daughter of William AV. and Deborah B. (Bangs) Atlcott, 
and widow of E. ilarvin T. SUliman. She was born in Eochester,

the principalsliip of Monson Academy wliicli he held till failing health 
compelled his resignation in 1859. His hold as a teacher on the

THE FLAGG ANCESTKY. 



[Material gathered chiefly from Bond's " Fainily Memorials . . . Watertown " ; 
" Concord, Massachusetts. Births, Marriages and Deaths" ; Fuller's " Eleazer 
Flagg of Concord, Mass., and His Descendants " (in the Maine Genealogist and 
Biographer for March, 1877) ; North's " History of Augusta (Maine)."'] 

I. 

Thomas Flegg,* son of Bartholomew and Alicia ( ) 

Flegg; baptized at Whinbergh, County Norfolk, England, in 1615. 
He came to this country with Richard Carver in 1G37, embarking 
at Scratby, Norfolk. 

Though not among the first proprietors of the town of Water- 
town, his name is found on the records as early as 1641 ; appears 
as owner of a " homestall " of 6 acres, also a lot of 20 acres which 
had been originally granted to one John Rose in the " Ist great 
dividend," 25 July, 1636. Thomas Flegg seems to have been a 
man of some prominence in the town; was selectman 1671-76, 
'78, '81, '85-87. As far as is known he was ancestor of all bearing 
the name in this country. Died 6 Feb. 1697-8. Married Mary

Capt. Samuel Moseley's company iu King Philip's war, 1675. 

Probably d. before 1697, as he is not mentioned in his father's 

* Flegg is tlie English form of the name, still adhered to by oiir cousins in the mother 
country and followed here for the first SO or lOJ years. For tlic .inccstry of Thomas 
riegg,"reference is made to a tabular pedigree by Miss HaniLt A. I'.iiinhrulLjc of Lon-

III. 

Eleazer Flegg (2c1), born about 1687. Lived in Concord, 
where he was constable and surveyor of highways. He was one of 
the original forty purchasers of Hassanamisco (Grafton). On the 
various divisions of the land among the proprietors, 1728-1744, he 
received parcels aggregating about 150 acres. There is no evidence 
that he himself ever lived in the new town, but unlike some otiiers, 
his interest was not that of a speculator in land. The following 
deeds of gift are on file in the Worcester Co. court house : To his 
son Eleazer Flagg, 50 acres, 17 Nov. 1731 ; To his son Robert 
Flagg, 34 acres, 26 Jan. 1737-8 ; To his son Nathaniel Flagg, 
43 J acres, 7 Feb. 1744. 

Eleazer the father was also a petitioner for the Xarragansett town- 
ships, as eldest male heir of his father, and on the setting apart of 
these lands by the General Coui-t in 1733 his name is found as a 
gi-antee of Narragansett No. 6 (now Templeton) ; also the entry 
that he received lot 94W in the division of that township in 1735. 
He died in Concord 28 jNIarch, 1745, in liis 59th year.

iel Flagg was appointed administrator and gave bonds 12 .Ian. 
1756. It is evident that he left no wife or children, as the 
court, in appointing a committee of ajipraisal, added these in- 
structions : " When you have thus perfected your inventory 
you are to divide the same among the Bi-others and Sisters of 
the dec"'. & to the heirs of such as are dec''." Heirs were 
brothers Eleazer, Kobert, Nathaniel and James ; sisters Abi-
