If you could see your ancestors 

All standing in a row, 
Would you be proud of them or not, 

Or don't you really know? 
Some strange discoveries are made 

In climbing family trees, 
And some of them, you know, do not 

Particularly please. 

If you could see .yom* ancestors 

All standing in a row. 
There might be some of them, perhaps, 

You wouldn't care to know. 
But here's another question, which 

Reciuires a different view — 
If you could meet your ancestors. 

Would they be proud of you? 

Somennlle Journal. 


The comi^iler of this genealogy has always desired to know 
more of his ancestors, and this book is the result. 

There have been written several histories of different ])laces, 
giving some genealogical records, and the writer has taken ad- 
vantage of all data he could find in these with reference to the 
Does, and has made some changes where he has found some of 
the historians did not trace back far enough to prove their records. 
He wishes to thank all the people who have generously contri- 
buted their records and recollections toward comj^leting this 

The author of this work wishes to disclaim any responsi- 
bility for errors of fact and arrangement, for some who have been 
listless or careless on this subject maj^ criticise the book because 
the complete record of their family is not given, when the com- 
piler would have been only too glad to have had more detailed 
information. He has searched New England Historical and 
Genealogical Registers, and all records of towns and cities where 
records were kept in early days, also all probate records and 
records of deeds, historical society records, both printed and in 
manuscript, the records of the New Hampshire legislature, and 
received the balance of his information from old Bibles owned by 
private individuals and people now living, and from tombstones 
from many cemeteries visited. 

He trusts that if anyone belonging in this genealogy has 
been omitted they may be able to trace their family with the 
aid of this book. There may be mistakes, as the writer finds 
that dates and names given b^- different members of a family 
sometimes vary, and dates on tombstones do not agree with 
Bible records of births. Every proof possible has been obtained, 
still the writer realizes there is some data missing. 

The manuscript was carefully arranged according to ap- 
proved methods of genealogical work. John Doe having been 
the first son, is given precedence, and his descendants follow in 

8 Introduction. 

generations. The descendants of Sampson Doe also are given 
in generations, so that by referring to the different incHces the 
name on record can be found. 

The author wih be pleased to receive any information in 
regard to corrections and additions, and at some future time 
a more complete work can be pi-inted. 

The indices are: 

Index No. 1 — Christian Names of Does. 
Index No. 2 — Surnames of others than Doe. 

It is important to remember that in the case of the head 
of a family the name will be in heavy type, while the names of 
his descendants appear in small type. 

The usual genealogical abbreviations appear: B for born, 
M for married, D for died, S P for sine prole (without issue), 
Dau. for daughter, Ch. for child or children, Bapt. for baptized, 
Est. for estate and Adm. for administered.

Armorial Bearings of George Do of Jesus College, Cambridge, 
England. Granted May 8, 1662. 

Armorial Bearings of Charles Doe, Esq., one of the Sheriffs of the 
City of London, England. Granted Sept. 15, 1664. 


Armorial Bearings of Thomas Doe of Sanghall, County Chester, 
England, and the descendants of his Grandfather. 
Granted Sept. 29, 1749. 


The name Doe is of Norman-French origin. Barber's 
"English Family Names," gives Doe as Danish, and as the Danes 
made frequent incursions into Normandy it is not impossible 
that our early ancestors were of Danish extraction. In "Norman 
People," we find mention of Raherius D'O, 1198, and in "Mem- 
oirs of the Antiquarian Society of Normandy," mention is made 
of Robert D'O and the castle and manor of D'O. In the Hun- 
dred Rolls, dated 1273, we find John le Doe and his father, Wil- 
liam le Do. In "Dictionary of Names," by Larchy, D'O is 
given as the name of a Breton saint, and was originally the name 
of a Norman town. Later records show that families bearing 
the name of Doe were located in England and Ireland, as in the 
Irish Parliament of James II in 1689 was Lewis Doe of Dungan- 
non, representing County Tyrone, and among King James's 
officers in 1690 was a Louis Doe, Receiver General. In 1635, 
Charles Doe was Lord High Sheriff of London, England, and was 
granted a coat of arms. Irish records show that a Joshua Doe 
purchased one of the forfeited estates in Ireland in 1702-1703. 

A careful research of some of the most eminent authorities 
on names proves that Doe is a different name than Dow, although 
many have thought it was the same family name, but spelled 
differently. This is not the case, for Dow is of Scottish origin, 
while Doe is not. In the examination of records while collect- 
ing material for this work we have in a few instances found the 
name spelled Dow, but think this was due to carelessness on the 
part of the person recording the name. 

There are three coats of arms belonging to Does, but we 
have been unable to connect any of these with the branch of the 
Doe family recorded in this work. A coat of arms is inherited 
the same as property, and can be legally used only by the de- 
scendants of that line of a family, although little regard to this 
is observed in America. 

Our first ancestor in New England, of whom we have a 
record, was Nicholas Doe, probably from England, although the 

16 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

writer found a great number of families who have had handed 
down to them the tradition that the Does are of Scotch ancestry. 
This is not the case, for the most painstaking research of works on 
the origin of names does not in a single instance give the name 
to be of Scottish origin. 

The first records that we can find of Nicholas Doe is where 
he witnessed the will of Thomas Walford at Portsmouth, N. H., 
Nov. 15, 1666. The following is copied from the New England 
Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. VI, p. 35. 

"Nicholas Doe (1) was received as an inhabitant in 1668, 
was taxed at Oyster River from 1666 to 1672." (Oyster River 
is now Durham, N. H.) 

February 14, 1668, Nicholas Doe purchased of Thomas 
Mounsell property which was deeded to the latter by John Mar- 
tin and Hester on Sept. 20, 1667, and described as follows: 

"His dwelling house now standing in Luberland in ye Great 
Bay together with 40 acres of upland granted him by the towai of 
Dover, bounded on one side by Richard York from ye high water 
side, and on ye other by ye land of John Goddard. Also two 
acres of salt meadow adjoining sd. uplands, and 12 acres of fresh 
meadow about three-fourths of a mile from the house. Also 
six score acres of upland lying by the side of Lamprill River, near 
ye mill, with all rights and privileges, etc." 

We find in Dover, N. H., records that Nicholas Doe was re- 
ceived as an inhabitant of Dover the 21st, 7 mo., 1668, with 
no rights of pasture on the common, the town not being of a 
capacity to give accommodations as heretofore. He witnessed 
the will of Richard York of Dover in 1672. He was grand jury- 
man in 1679 and 1680 at court in Dover, N. H., and took oath 
of office of constable of Dover in 1682. 

Where Nicholas Doe was born, or resided prior to his ap- 
pearance at Oyster River, N. H., in 1666, the writer has been 
unable to determine, but from some of the family legends one is 
led to believe that possibly he was a native of England, as one 
of the family, who is past ninety years of age had heard the story 
of the three brothers, and claimed his grandfather had told him 
that Nicholas Doe, his first ancestor, came from London, Eng- 
land, and that Nicholas' father had ow^ned a whole street called 
Blue Street, because all of the houses were of a blue color. Noth- 

The Descendants of >»icholas Doe 17 

ing is yet known of his history in England, l)ut there were many 
others who settled at Oyster River (Dover), whose descendants 
have not been able to connect with families of the same name in 

A record was kept of those families who left England, and 
before leaving they were requested to take the oath of loyalty 
to the English Crown and promise conformity to the Established 
Church. As many desired to avoid this enforced allegiance and 
to settle in the land of their adoption free to follow their own 
religious inclinations, a great many of them left secreth^ and 
made their way as sailors, etc. It is possible that Nicholas Doe 
left England in this manner. 

A large number of English church records have been ex- 
amined, but we have failed to find the birth of Nicholas Doe, 
or the date of his marriage to Martha Thomas. We do find that 
there were a number of Does who landed in Virginia as early as 
1635, and their marriages were followed to see if Nicholas Doe 
was born in Virginia, as a great many people came from Virginia 
to the Isles of Shoals fishing, and while it is possible he might 
have been one of these fishermen there is no tangible proof to 
this effect. We do find that "13 June, 1673, William Doe, for 
forty pounds conveys to Andrew Dymond and Henry Maine, all 
of Isle of Shoals, his house and lands in Ipswich." (Ipswich 
Records at Salem, Vol. I, page 267.) What part of the Isles of 
Shoals this means it is difficult to determine, as there are about 
eighteen islands which comprise the Isles of Shoals, and this 
might mean one of them. The Avriter finds one more Doe in the 
early daj's, and that was Edward Doe, who had a suit in Boston 
in 1682 over a cargo. 

This makes three Does in the Colonies in the period between 
1666-1682, and it would seem to some that they were three 
brothers, as we often hear ; the writer was told by his father when 
a boy that three brothers came to America, and this tale is told 
in almost every family, but it is impossible to connect them 
with Nicholas Doe, as we have never found a descendant from 
anyone of them except Nicholas. 

The "Genealogical Dictionary," which gives account of 
first settlers who came to America before May 16, 1692, shows 
three generations. It also mentions Nicholas Doe and wife Martha.

New Hampshire Provincial Deeds, Vl-Pagc H)7. 

Nicholas Doe aged about 50, deposed 7 June, 1682, that 
"sixteen years since I was desired by Elizabeth alias (Graves, for 
to devide a parcel of Planting ground which was left by her hus- 
band, Richard York to her son John York and herself, into thirds, 
which land, I, with Benjamin Matthews, did devide." 

On the 10th of the first month, 1673-4, the bounds between 
Nicholas Doe and John Goddard were fixed as follows: "From 
high water mark at the usuall landing place A high waye of fower 
poele wid up to John Godder his land at the marsh on the one 
side and soe to the Corner of John Godders orchard on the west 
and that fence of the orchard to stand and soe to a heape of 
Rocks on the west of the heigh waye and Nicholass Does garden 
on the Est of the high waye and all the Newe fence att Does 
garden to be wholley taken a way and from the corner of Does 
garden in to the woods upon the west sid of the hill this high 
way to goe into the woods of fower pole wide upon a North and 
to be west line and is the bounds of the land betwixt John God- 
derd and Nichlos Doe." (Durham (N. H.) History.) 

From old deeds we learn that John Smith sold to Nicholas 
Doe two small islands containing about six acres, "be it more or 
less," and Sampson Doc, son of Nicholas, sold the same to Joseph 
Chesley 27 March, 1707. 

Nicholas Doe, 1691. 

(Administration on the estate of Nicholas 
Doe granted to his son John Doe, June 6, 1691, who 
presented an inventory and gave bond in the 
sum of £100, with Richard Glark and John 
Bennett as sureties.) 

Att a C'ourt of probates * * * * the 6th 
day of November, 1705 Sampson Doe moved to

Judge Allowed he giving in Sufficient Secuitye

38 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

Stephen Doe 5, (Deacon John 4, Daniel 3, John 2, Nicholas 
1), b. after 1770; m. Nancy Quimby of Meredith, N. H. They 
had five children, of whom we find record of but one, as follows: 

I. Stephen of Parsonsfield, Me., whom. Mary Jane . 

James Doe 5, (John 4, John 3, John 2, Nicholas 1), b. Alton, 
N. H., about 1790; m. Nov. 12, 1812, Lydia Kent of Wolfeboro, 
N. H. In 1825 James and Lydia Doe with their children, the 
eldest a lad of thirteen and the youngest but an infant, emigrated 
to Canada, settling in Granby, Shefford County, P. Q. The trip 
was made on horseback, and they carried only such household 
goods as could be packed on the backs of horses. At that time 
there was but one house where the flourishing town of Granby 
now stands, and that was of the blockhouse type, and was occu- 
pied by the families of John Horner and Squire Frost. The 
Doe family went back about three miles into the forest and 
built a log cabin and cleared land for a farm, having taken 200 
acres of wild timberland. To do their trading they followed a 
blazed trail to St. Pie, where the nearest store was located. They 
manufactured pearlash and salts, carrying these products by ox 
team part way to Montreal, where French carters were hired to 
continue the trip and bring back goods of different kinds. The 
compiler of this genealogy had the pleasure of passing a few days 
in Canada during February, 1916, at the home of Horace Lyman 
Doe, grandson of James Doe, and also visited Mrs. Elvira Doe 
Smith, daughter of James, who was born in 1819. Mrs. Smith 
has a wonderful memory and told many interesting anecdotes of 
life and hardships in the early days, of carding, spinning and 
weaving, etc. She was also able to recall the names of all her 
uncles and aunts, some of whom had visited them in Canada 
during her childhood, and although 90 years had passed she 
told of things which occurred at Alton, N. H., when she was a 

From this hardy pioneer and his wife about thirty families 
descended. Some have returned to the States and some occupj^ 
the same farm cleared 90 years ago. Among their possessions is a 
grandfather's clock which was owned by James Doe, and brought 
from Alton, N. H. This clock was formerly in the Kent family.

strength and power of endurance. It is said that while living in 
Alexandria he went into a store in the town of Grafton to make 
some purchases. While thus engaged, two young men consider- 
ably under the influence of liquor started to impose on him, 
whereupon he calmly picked one of them up bodily and dashed 
him through a glass door. Mr. Doe then pulled out his wallet 
and asked the merchant what the damage would amount to, 
but was assured that there was no expense connected with the 
breaking of the door, as the merchant considered that he had 
done a good deed in teaching the young rowdy not to impose on 
an elderly man. He d. in Orange, N. H., in 1874.

Note. — The graves of this family are to be found in the family burial 
place on the Doe homestead in Durham, where four generations of Does are 
buried. This plot also contains several graves marked by rough slabs of 

44 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

s tone without inscriptions. These stones must have been placed on the graves 
prior to 1800, and it is safe to assume that they mark the resting place of Does 
of earlier generations. Olinthus Doe was the last of this branch of the fam- 
ily, and under the terms of his will, dated May 18, 1898, the farm was left 
to the Town of Durham for the benefit of the schools. The house was burned 
several years ago, but the ruins of the massive chimney are still standing 
(1916). The burial plot was located a short distance from the house, and the 
town has placed an iron fence around the enclosure. A comparison of the 
location of this farm with the original survey of the town makes it apparent 
that the land was once a part of the tract owned by John Doe (2). The 
moat described in the account of the settlement of John Doe's estate, 1742, 
is seen in the rear of the ruins of the house. 


William Nealley Doe 6, (Jacob 5, Jeremiah 4, Daniel 3,

regt., Apr. 23 to Sept. 9, 1775, receiving 5 pounds, 2 s. 10 d. and

His name also appears as a fifer in Capt. James Stevens' Co. from 
July 27, 1777 to Jan. 9, 1778. Stevens' Co. was attached to 
Senter's regt. for the defense of Rhode Island; m. Joanna Hall

An amusing anecdote concerning Mrs. Mary Chase, daughter 
of Capt. John Doe, is copied from an old paper: 

"One day hearing a commotion among her geese, she sallied 
forth from the door of the farmhouse in quest of the agent of the 
disturbance, and quickly saw a full grown fox with his teeth 

54 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

firmly set in the neck of a large goose and making an effort to 
swing his anticipated dinner over his shoulder, preparatory to 
leaving for the forest. She immediately seized him by the ears 
with either hand and notwithstanding his fierce struggles carried 
him in triumph to a back room in the house and closed the door 
to keep him until her husband's arrival from a neighbor's. In 
this room was an old-fashioned fireplace with a broad projection. 
After his foxship had been domiciled for a while, she peeped 
through an aperture in the door and saw him sitting upon the 
shelf or projection aforenamed, as if preparing to escape through 
a glass in the door. She had no notion of losing him, so incasing 
her hands in some thick leather gloves, entered the room and 
seizing the fox carried him to her bedroom where she turned a 
bushel measure upside down with Mr. Fox underneath. She 
then lifted one leg of her bedstead and placed it on the measure 
and secured him until her husband's return."

Jan. 12, 1834. The following is copied from The Fostoria Weekly 
News, Fostoria, Ohio: "He belonged to a family of thirteen 
children. He chanced to have his birth at a time, and of paients, 
who thought it no disgrace to have a large family, but like the 
ancient Hebrews deemed it an honor to have a numerous pos- 
terity. Connected with his childhood and youth there were no 
remarkable incidents or events. His father was a thrifty farmer, 
and Daniel, in common with the other sons, was trained upon the 
farm; here he acquired habits of industry, economy and prompt- 
ness. These excellent traits characterized his life. Inheriting a 
somewhat delicate constitution, his parents, not considering him 
strong enough to work on the farm, determined to give him an 
education. It was customary at that period to send the weakly 
members of the family to college. Customs change and the 
strongest go now. Accordingly, Daniel was fitted up in his plain 
home-spun clothes, and sent away to Haverhill, N. H. He con- 
tinued attending school, working on the farm, and teaching, 
until at length he was prepared and entered the medical depart- 
ment at Dartmouth College, where he graduated, Dec. 6, 1827, 
in a class of thirty-one with the highest honors of his class. He 
commenced practice of medicine at Bridgewater, N. H., and 
continued it at Rumney and Meredith Center, N.H., New York 
City, Peru and Fremont, Ohio. He came with his family to 
Fostoria about fifteen years ago (1854) but has followed his 
profession very little since that on account of impaired health. 
Dr. Doe stood high as a physician, and was a successful practi- 
tioner. That he possessed marked excellencies of character, 
none who knew him can deny." He d. Jan. 26, 1869, in Fostoria, 0.

The following is copied from the Brown University Alumni 
Monthly, issue of January, 1915: 

"Edgar John Doe, '64, cHed Dec. 29, at his home in Provi- 
dence, after an illness of some duration. He was born in Par- 
sonsfield. Me., in 1842. He entered Brown in 1860 as a candi- 
date for the degree of A. B. He served as a private in Co. K, 
10th Regiment, Rhode Island Volunteers, May 26 to Sept. 1, 
1862. Returning to Washington he assisted Col. Turner of a 
New York Cavalry regiment and Lt. Col. Raymond of a New York 
infantry regiment (both members of the Underground Railroad) 
in raising the First Regiment, District of Columbia Colored Troops 
it being President Lincoln's intention to form a brigade from the 
colored refugees there assembled, of which Col. Turner should 
have command and Doe be given a position on his staff. But 
the colonelcy of that regiment was given to a person unknown 
to the men and instantly all recruiting stopped among the blacks 
of the District. Through Senator Wilson, Doe secured an appoint- 
ment as Hospital Steward in the Regular Army and served as 
such until the War of the Rebellion was well passed. He per- 
formed duty at the Surgeon General's Office in Washington; at 
the office of the Medical Director of the Northern Department, 
at Columbus, O.; also from some time in 1864 at the Marine 
Hospital in the latter city, then in charge of an Acting Assistant 
Surgeon, but Doe himself being practically the executive officer. 
During this last period he studied medicine and attended a 
course of lectures at the Medical College of Ohio, but finally 
relinquished his purpose. He came to Providence in 1865, and 
during most of the time he was engaged in the coal and wood 
business. He was president of the Doe & Little Company, and 
of the Carbon, Coal & Coke Company. He held no public 
office, but was a devoted member of the Stewart Street Baptist 
Church, in which he served both as clerk and deacon and as the

teacher of an adult Bible class in its Sunday School. He did 
not graduate, but in 1903, by special vote, he received the degree 
of A. B. from the University. He is survived by a widow, two 
sons, Charles E. and Arthur E., of Providence, and a daughter, 
Mrs. Alice Roberts of Savannah, Ga."

Rev. Franklin B. Doe 
B. Dec. 5, 1827 


Rev. Franklin Bradley Doe 8, (Jacob 7, William 6, Jacob 
5, Jeremiah 4, Daniel 3, John 2, Nicholas 1), b. Highgate, Vt., 
Dec. 10, 1824. Prepared for college at Lowell, Mass. Grad- 
uated from Amherst College, 1851; Bangor Theological Seminary 
1854. M. 1854, Mary A. Beecroft of Bangor, Me., who d. April, 
1900. He had pastorates at Lancaster, Mass., and Appleton, 
Wis., 1858-68. Later was superintendent of American Home 
Missionary Society for Wisconsin 1868 to 1883; superintendent 
for Missouri, Arkansas, Indian Territory in 1883; financial agent 
for Ripon College 1899. He d. May 23, 1901, Ashland, Wis. 
The following tribute to his life and work is copied from the 
Ashland Daily Press : 

The funeral services of Rev. F. B. Doe took place in the 
Congregational church of this city, in charge of the pastor, Rev. 
A. 0. Beach. In accordance with the request of the deceased, 
his oldtime friend. Rev. H. A. Miner of Madison, made an 
address; also Rev. H. A. Carter of Beloit, secretary of Wisconsin 
Home Missionary society. The favorite hymns, "Rock of Ages, 
Cleft For Me," 'Tn the Cross of Christ I CUory," were sung. 

Rev. Mr. Doe visited this city years before any railroad 
reached Ashland. He aided in th(> organization of the First 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 101 

Congregational church during the 70's, and secured for pastor, 
Rev. Will Safford, whose early death was greatly lamented. Mr. 
Doe was in fact, one of the oldest residents of this city, and his 
departure will be greatly lamented by our citizens. 

It was in Swanton, Vermont, December 5, 1827, that Frank- 
lin Bradley Doe first saw the light. Of a sturdy New England 
parentage, trained to habits of industry on the farm, with only 
a common school education, but with a self reliant, ambitious 
spirit he set his heart upon something better. He taught school 
winters, receiving $9 per month for his first term, and "boarded 
'round," and worked summers. Becoming an expert lather he 
commanded even better wages at this than teaching. For three 
years his home was in Lowell, Massachusetts, where he became 
a member of the Zohn street Congregational church, and for 
two years acted as sexton, busily filling his purse preparing for 

In 1847 he entered Amherst college, graduating in 1851, 
having taken rank much above the average in scholarship. 
From thence he went to Bangor Theological seminary, graduating 
in August, 1854, having taught in the meantime an academy at 
Litchfield, Maine, for nine months. 

At Bangor he met Miss Mary A. Beecroft. who became his 
life companion, being married by Rev. George Shepard, D. D., 
of the seminary, on the day of his graduation, and immediately 
entered upon a four years' pastorate at Lancaster, Massachusetts. 
The pastorate of the Appleton, Wisconsin, Congregational church 
becoming vacant, Mr. Doe was invited to fill the same, entering 
upon his western field of labor in the fall of 1858 with a church 
of sixty members, which in ten years, under his leadership, 
reached a membership of over 300, requiring the enlargements 
of the church edifice to accomodate the growing congregations. 

In 1868 ]\Ir. Doe was appointed to the superintendency of 
home missions for northern Wisconsin reaching as far south as 
the Milwaukee & LaCrosse railway. After ten years he had 
charge of the entire state for five years with H. A. Miner, who 
had been in charge of the southern part of the state as his asso- 
ciate in general missionary work. The next ten years Mr. Doe 
spent as missionary superintendent for Texas, Louisiana, Arkan- 
sas, Indian Territory and Missouri, with headquarters at Dallas 

102 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

and later at St. Louis. This proved a very arduous work by 
reason of the long distances to be traveled and the fact that Con- 
gregationalism for the most part was an exotic in that part of 
our country. But his work was crowned with success. 

In 1893, after completing twenty-five years of home mission- 
ary service he retired to his home in this city, where he has since 
resided. But he has not been idle. He has served as temporary 
supplies from a few weeks to a year in Clintonville, West Salem, 
Eau Claire, Bruce, Apollonia, Amery and other points, thus 
rounding out a life of splendid service. 

He loved Wisconsin, its schools, its churches, its homes, 
that were ever open to welcome his coming. His hand and his 
voice were readily interested in every good work. 

He leaves a son Frank, residing in St. Paul, Minn., and two 
daughters, Mrs. Edwin H. Ellis and Mrs. L. A. W^arner, both of 
this city.

began to carve out his own career by going to Boston, where he 

106 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

worked for a Mr. Hunter, in Faneuil Hall Market, for five years. 
During these years he laid the foundation for his future business 
career by learning the fundamental principles of the produce 
business. In 1860 he formed a partnership to conduct a produce 
business, the firm being known as Doe & Sargent. The part- 
nership was dissolved three years later and Mr. Doe came to 
Bradford and spent the year 1864. The following year Mr. Doe 
went to New York, and forty years of business life in th^ whole- 
sale fruit business was begun with the establishing of the firm of 
Farnham & Doe. This combination lasted two years when the 
firm of Dudley, Clapp & Doe was formed. For twenty-five years 
this firm did an enormous business in wholesaling fruit much of 
it being shipped to Europe. In 1892 he associated himself with 
Porter Brothers Co., being manager of the New York branch. 
During the next thirteen years he was in charge of the New York 
end of the wholesale auction of fruits for this Co. In 1905 he 
retired from active business and returned to Bradford to spend 
the last years of life free from the cares of metropohtan life. Mr. 
Doe was large in body and in mind. His active life was among 
the scenes of big business and big things and his thinking was 
colored by his environments. He took an active interest in 
affairs, especially National business affairs, and his large ac- 
quaintance and wide reading, made his judgment upon such 
matters valuable. His genial nature and kindly disposition as- 
sured him a host of friends, and his journey in life was always 
cheered by those whom he counted friends. His years of re- 
tiremient were made happy by the attention which his sons paid 
to the gratification of his wishes and he was never allowed to feel 
that he was becoming an old man because there was always some- 
thing at hand to interest him. He d. at Bradford, Vt. Sept. 7,

(Here the Editor tells us by concurred in brackets that in the 
record of the Council he finds the Council concurred and presum- 
ably Stoodly and Doe accepted the settlement.) 

The following is copied from "Landmarks of Ancient Dover," 
by Mary P. Thompson, published in 1892: 

"Nathaniel Doe, April 19, 1745, conveyed to Ralph Cross 
of Newbury, half the farm called Doe's Neck, about one hun- 
dred and twenty acres, with dwelling house and barn southward 
of house land extending from barn to Lamprell River, then east 
on said river to the Great Bay, and by said Bay northerly to a 
fence northward of Martin's Layn, so-called, then up Goddard's 
Creek to a rock eastward of Burch Point near the place where 
people commonly pass over." 

Capt. Nathaniel Doe subscribed £200 on the Provincial Loan 
of 25,000 Dec. 1, 1743, and his brother Samuel subscribed £100. 
(Prov. Records, Book XVIII, page 192). We find where he 
and his wife sold their property in Durham, also in Berwick, 
Maine, in 1757, and they probably left there and went with their 
children into the wilderness of Maine. The first authentic record 
we can find after that is where he purchased land of Samuel 
Scott, in 1767, recorded in Wiscasset, Lincoln county. At that 
time Lincoln county included what is now Kennebec county and 
several other counties. By these records we find he was the 
first man by the name of Doe to settle in Maine, as the only 
other mention we find of the name of Doe prior to this, is the 
name of his uncle John as witness on a deed in York County, 
and this deed was probably signed at Oyster River, N. H. 

We also find where he deeds land in 1769-70 and 1772 to his 
son Nathaniel Doe, Jr., the deed reading as follows: "I, Nathaniel 
Doe, Gentleman of Kennebec River, County of Lincoln and 
Province of Massachusetts Bay in New England, (and not of 
any town,) which goes to prove that after he left Berwick with 
his family he must have settled in the wilderness on Kennebec 
River where Vassalboro and Sydney towns are, as we find as late 
as 1805 he deeded land in Vassalboro to his sons, and we find in 
Vassalboro records that Nathaniel Doe, Jr., Dudley Doe, James 
Doe and Sampson Doe were committee on valuation of lists of 
polls in 1790.

ing a conscientious regard for justice and right. 
As a teacher he sought to impress his pupils with 
the necessity of a sure educational foundation as a 
means of future success, and his ability as an in- 
structor often received public recognition. He was 
a member of the Democratic party, but the min- 
ority of his party always barred his election when 
a candidate for official honors. He was a member 
of the Board of Agriculture of the State for three 
years, and at one time was inspector of customs 
for the port of Saco. Mr. Doe was familiarly 
known as Capt. Doe, he having been at one time 
captain of the Saco Guards.

"Bartlett Doe, who was born in 1785, and who afterwards 
was a prominent Mason and a successful farmer, became a colonel 
in the second regiment of the Maine militia and raised a family 
of twelve children. By all accounts the Colonel was what used 
to be called a "very personable sort of a man." He was, accord- 
ing to the rather quaint words of the historian of Parsonsfield, 
"a man of high moral standing, a courteous gentleman of the old 
school, of a large, generous, loving nature, with every trait of 
genuine, robust and kindly humanity, and fully alive to ever}- 
touch of true manliness. He believed in the development of 
every part of our nature, placing the foundation of excellence in 
deep religious principle, but not overlooking or underrating the 
claims of social and mental culture. When a young man, he 
was enrolled in the militia, where, displaying great mihtary ca- 

190 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

pacity, he soon rose from the ranks to several grades of officers, 
and was finally commissioned as Colonel of the Second Regiment 
of Maine Militia. He was at that time of tall and commanding 
form, of fine proportions, broad shoulders and full chest; his fea- 
tures were regular and handsome, his voice clear and resounding, 
and when clad in his uniform and mounted upon his caparisoned 
steed made a most distinguished appearance." 

"Uprightness, integrity, and natural ability — stern, capable. 
New England qualities — were the marks of the Doe men. They 
reached surely after the simple and substantial rewards of in- 
dustry, and held them firmly. The Colonel's well-tilled acres 
and bursting granaries proved the sane, careful husbandman's 
thought behind all that bravery of the resounding voice and 
caparisoned steed!"

a "University of California Chronicle"; (by per- 
mission of H. B. Phillips). 
"The first period of his life, up to his migration to California, 
opens to us the spectacle of a persistently industrious spirit con- 
stantly dogged, constantly thwarted, in its various attempts by . 
ill health. After a common school education at Parsonsville 
and some time at the Seminary at Drakes Corner, Effingham, 
just over the New Hampshire border. Doe began to make his 
own way as a school teacher at Parsonsfield. He was thrown 
entirely upon his own resources. Neither then, nor at any other 
time, did he receive aid from his family. Very soon the con- 
fined life of a teacher affected his health for the worse. Nothing 
daunted, he moved to Boston and learned the carpenter's trade. 
Characteristically, the man was snatching opportunity from 
misfortune; ill health necessitated an outdoor occupation; car- 
penter work was outdoor work, and carpenter work in Boston 
might lead a young and ambitious man up to contractor's work, 
and, beyond that to wholesale or retail commerce in building 
materials. But again ill health thwarted his plans. The air 
of Boston was not suited to his physical condition. Another 
change was necessary. For a short time he was employed in the 
post-office in Biddeford, Me., but only for a short time. Chang- 

194 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

ing to Biddeford was not snatching opportunity from defeat, — 
was not the way of a Doe. If the change must be to a freer and 
wider air, that freer and wider air ought to be found in a land of 
new opportunity, in a land, young but growing to greatness, full 
of promise to the energetic and ambitious. 

"In 1850, Bartlett Doe, his elder brother, had gone to Cali- 
fornia, and another brother, John, had followed two years later. 
There they had established, under the firm name of 'B. and J. 
S. Doe', a sash, door, and blind business which was to last half 
a century. To the delicate but ambitious brother the oppor- 
tunity was obvious: California — square miles, cubic miles of 
fresh air — , a growing country — a lumber business! In 1857, 
Charles came to San Francisco and associated in business with 
his brothers. Doubtless his practical experience as a carpenter 
stood him in some stead in this wider business. 

''Later he formed a partnership with James Knowland for 
the purpose of engaging in the retail lumber business. After 
a time this partnership was dissolved, and the business continued 
under the name of Charles F. Doe and Company. In these 
ventures the fortune of Charles Doe was made; in these ventures, 
and in investments made with their gains, thousands rolled up 
thousands, until the million mark was passed and repassed and 
passed again. 

"The sickly boy had spent his years in the new country; he 
had nursed his health there, steadily and frugally; there, when he 
did business under the sign of Charles F. Doe and Company, he 
had achieved the vision of the Boston carpenter; and, by extend- 
ing to that business the same qualities of foresight, frugality, 
indomitable perseverance, and successful management in the 
face of failure, which had brought him through the earlier years 
of his life, he had won a financial success that had put him, and 
kept him until his death in 1904, in the first rank of San Francisco 
capitalists. Even since his death the business he so wisely and 
carefully built up during his life has continued its success under 
the management of his nephew, Frank P. Doe. 

"There was nothing spctacular about this success. There was 
no wild speculation in western bononzas. A sanely, conserva- 
tively managed business in a profitable commodity brought in 
sure returns. The returns were loaned out at moderate inter- 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 195 

est, or invested in city real estate that invariably increased rapid- 
ly in value. Real values alone attracted Charles Doe's atten- 
tion ; there was in his business no commercial thievery by means 
of fictitious and inflated valuations — no making of fortunes 
by mere desk jugglery of pen and ink. Money earned money 
in a quiet, legitimate fashion; there was no buccaneering under 
the euphemistic cover of "astute financial operations." And 
this quiet, honest business — so good to reflect upon, so heartening 
in the midst of universal sensationalism and moral flippancy — 
was all conducted in San Francisco. There Charles Doe earned 
his money honestly, and there he invested it wisely, — a New 
Englander transplanted to San Francisco and not afraid or 
ashamed to live the stern, simple, placid life of the older and more 
staid community in the new and gayer and less conscientious 
metropolis. He was an argonaut who forgot not the lessons of 
his first home in the glamour of new opportunities. 

"In California he came to man's estate. No picture of him 
is left to us. None is extant, save a daguerreotype taken just 
before he started for California. Temperamentally he was sub- 
ject to an intense dislike of the camera — a subjection to which 
not a few modest, and perhaps over-serious people — not neces- 
sarily New Englanders — are quite painfully bound. 

"In habits, Charles Doe was the personification of regularity. 
The daily routine of his life was seldom varied: stated hours for 
rising, for breakfast and his walk to the office, for attention to 
business, and for the other simple arrangements of each day's 
life. He belonged to no fraternal orders. His evenings were 
uniformly, year after year, spent at home — after 1888 at the 
home he built for himself on the corner of California and Laguna 
streets, where his niece, Mrs. Martha A. Swan, kept house for 
him. He never travelled to any extent; he was never out of the 
United States. He had few intimates. Shy, retiring, delicate, 
he never mixed with his fellows. In that respect he was the 
opposite of his elder brother Bartlett, to whose quick, warm, 
positive nature the entire family, Charles included, looked for 
sympathy and advice. Especially in the presence of women, 
Charles Doe evinced a shyness that left him singularly without 
feminine companionship save that of the women of his own im- 
mediate family. Books were his companions. In them he found 

196 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

a quiet, leisurely, and faithful substitute for the more various 
and precarious companionship of men and women. And, char- 
acteristically, even in this friendship with books, a certain thor- 
oughness and frugality showed itself; for he was not a light reader 
of many books, but a deep reader of a few. And the few were 
books richly remunerative in knowledge and common sense. 
Natural science and astronomy were his favorite subjects; 
Darwin, Huxley, and Spencer, the authors he read most. In 
religion he was a Universalist, looking out impartially and bene- 
volently upon the variety of religious sects, seeing much good in 
all, and never allowing the narrowness of vision or smallness of 
nature often evinced by this or that sect to embitter his view 
of human character or its religious ideals. Under all changes 
and colors of creed he saw the one common human nature; and 
that human nature was truly beloved by the quiet, simple New 
Englander. His will is proof of that; Christian and Jew, Catholic 
and Protestant, benefit alike by the wise charities of that noble 
document. The list of his legacies includes, among others, such 
societies as the following: The San Francisco Protestant Or- 
phan Asylum Society, the Pacific Hebrew Orphan Asylum and 
Home Society, The Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum, The Hos- 
pital for Children and Training School for Nurses, The Boys 
and Girls Aid Society, and The Golden Gate Kindergarten Asso- 

"In that list of legacies — all to societies dealing with the care 
of children — there seems to be a mute testimony of a deep affec- 
tion going out from the heart of a lonely man to the children 
whom he could never know in the more loving way of a father. 
There is much peace and much love behind the bare terse law 
phrases in which the gifts are declared; just as behind the stern, 
simple lines of the donor's New England countenance there was a 
deep', sure love for the peaceful ways of children. His kindness 
and generosity found expression during his life in the loving way 
in which, year by year, he entertained his relatives on the happy 
feast days of the calendar. About his table on holidays, expecial- 
ly on Thanksgiving Day and at Christmas, simply and joyously 
he gathered his kin. At such times the self-contained nature 
of the man seemed to his relatives, both old and young, like the 
benediction of one for whom the cares of the world had eventuated 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 197 

in a perfect and constrained peace, in a wise, calm, masterful 
reconciliation with his lot in life. 

"But what was to be the final fruit of this quiet, strong life? 
So much financial success had come to the man that very great 
power was his. Was that power to dwindle at his death, ac- 
complishing no perpetual monument of its own rise to greatness 
and of its own beneficent and wise, calm dealing with the hurly- 
burly of life? Was not the dignity of some public and perpetual 
usefulness to be the eventuation of so much private success? 
Of these things Charles Doe was not unmindful. He himself 
saw that private success, when it amounts to more than an indi- 
vidual sufficiency, involves a public duty. He often said that 
five hundred thousand dollars was enough for any one man, and 
that all wealth in excess of that amount should, on the owner's 
death revert to the state. Many were his quiet charities while 
alive; many, as we have seen, were his legacies to charitable in- 
stitutions. But there yet remained the desire to do his own 
particular part, to perpetuate in some fashion the quiet, deep 
ways of his own manner of taking life, of his own springs of action 
and ideals. Many ideas suggested themselves. — About two years 
before his death, just after a severe illness, he had a new will 
drawn up on which he bequeathed to the regents of the Univer- 
sity of California twenty-four per cent of his property, ' in trust 
for the following purposes : As much as may be necessary thereof 
to be used in the construction and erection of a library building 
for its Academic Department, and the surplus not used for the 
construction and erection of a library building to be permanently 
invested by said Regents, and the income, revenue, and profit 
thereof to be used for the purchase of books.' 

"Mr. Doe would have given much more had not the state 
code contained a provision limiting the percentage of fortune a 
man may bequeath to benevolent institutions. 

"Such, then, — a University library building, capacious, in- 
vincible to weather and time, removed from the sensationalism 
of life, returning richly upon the investment in dividends of 
character and power — a perpetual monument to the will and in- 
dustry and sure methods that had raised a private success to 
the measure of a public power, nobly discharging the public 
duty of that success — such, then, was the eventuation of the life 

1S8 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

that had begun quietly and sickly at Doe Mountain, had pro- 
gressed frugally and gently through the East to the West, and 
had gone out from East and from West and from all else in the 
same uneventful fashion it had known in all the days of its doing 
on earth. A great Library — ministering always to the young 
and the courageous, to the hopeful and the makers of the future; 
ministering both by its calm, gracious, eternally stanch exterior, 
and also by the rich, deep hoards of human knowledge and wis- 
dom stored safely in its interior ; ministering for sanity, conserva- 
tism, truth, reverence and public and private responsibility; 
ministering out of the growing West to the reawakening East — 
like a modern Alexandria performing to the old civilizations 
of the past the reverence of a newer world power — such is the 
culmination of Charles Franklin Doe's life. The granite of the 
New England character and the granite of California mountains 
have found each other in a mutual symbolism of that which is 
honest and true from the core out. 

"Of all that large family of brothers and sisters — twelve of 
them — to which Charles Doe belonged, only one, Mrs. Nancy 
H. Kezar, now remains; but California is proud of the name of 
Doe and all Californians will unite with Mrs. Kezar in being 
glad that the Doe name is perpetuated in this generous fashion. 

"The life of many a man is called by his biographers unevent- 
ful. Charles Doe's life was uneventful. But, better understood, 
more deeply viewed, Charles Doe's life is the most eventful of 
all things — the growth of a great sane character day by day — 
more valuable to the nation than the drama of a conquering war 
hero — less obvious, more basal. The magnificent building at 
Berkeley sumbolizes the solidity of achievement represented by 
such a character and so needed in the midst of our changing, 
kaleidoscopic national existence."

"He was a quiet man of simple tastes and orderly life. Dili- 
gent in business, he dealt honorably with all men. Charity 
for divergent views and a gentle tolerance toward the beliefs of 
others tempered the native sternness of his convictions. Shrink- 
ing from the social turmoil, he found through books abundant 
converse with the best who have thought and recorded; and now 
that he has yielded the stewardship of his goods, his last desire 
opens the companionships he loved to the use of all the recurring 
generations of the young."

some years, but he bore them with patience and Christian resig- 
nation. On Saturday evening he was attacked with a shock of 
paralysis — after which he remained in an unconscious state until 
Tuesday morning, when he fell asleep in Jesus. About one 
year since, Bro. D. was brought near to death, as all his friends 
supposed, and as we knelt by his bedside, he said: "Thy will, 
O Lord, be done," but his work on earth was not yet finished. 
Again his voice was heard in our conference and prayer meetings, 
and occasionally he attended public worship. His earnest

not, cannot soon be forgotten in the church and community in 
which he lived. He leaves a deeply afflicted widow, several

(Biographical Sketch.) 

Joseph Merrill Doe was l)orn in Meredith, N. H., March 26, 
1809, where the family for several generations had been located. 
His father was a farmer and he worked with him while attending 
school. Later he went to Lowell, Massachusetts, where he 
learned the trade of upholsterer, and then opened a furniture 
store with a Mr. Mason as a partner. On Sept. 29, 1834, he 
m. Laura Page, also of Meredith, bringing her to Lowell to live. 
In 1836 he removed to Boston and for many years his name was 
the only Doe in the Boston Directory. Here his business was 
again that of furniture, and in 1846 he organized the firm of Doe, 
Hazelton & Co., at the head of which he continued for many years, 
the business of the house gaining steadily until it became one 
of the best known in Boston. 

In 1855 he sold out to his partners and moved to New York 
where he continued in the furniture business until the Civil 
War began. His trade was almost entirely with Southern dealers, 
and with the war came to an end. He then decided to return 
to New England, where with a Mr. John A. Ellis he continued 
the manufacture of furniture. Their factory was in Cambridge 
and the firm name was John A. Ellis & Co. Later, upon the death

camps up the Penobscot for a season occasionally to j^ol funds for 
further schooling; from his own writing we note the following: 

TiiK Descendants ok Nk'holas Doe 221 

"Juich of us iiuidc our own bed of lasscls ))ick(Ml from tlie cedur, fir, 
hemlock, and pine houghs, thereby, making a licaithy odoriferent 
couch. With a good cook we did justice to our supphes of pork 
and beans and rehshed the molasses — being so far from "clearing" 
as to render vegetables out of the question. We lived remote 
from refined society for nine months at a time until the spring 
freshet was sufficient to float the logs down the smaller streams 
to a lake or an outlet into the main river and then driven to the 
saw mills." In one of the expeditions he accidentally chopped 
his foot very badly and was a sufferer all his life from the injured 
member. He completed a course of study at Foxcroft Academy, 
and soon after left his home and journeyed westward via the 
Erie Canal and Great Lakes to Chicago, which was only a swanijiv 
village. He took a stage from Chicago to Dixon and hvvv he 
began his chosen work in 1845 and for many years was an in- 
structor in the ])ublic schools of noi'thern Illinois. 

He was married to Elizabeth Pilkington at Providence, 111., 
Apr. 23, 1854 and to this union nine children were born: dau 
Elizabeth, d. in infancy; 2nd dau. Abigail, d. soon after graduat- 
ing from a Chicago College, age 25 years. After teaching many 
years he devoted his time entirely to farming and lived for 37 
years on one farm that was but "raw prairie" when he and his 
noble wife took upon themselves the duty of developing it into a 
most fruitful and beautiful farm home. After all these years 
of scientific farming and stock raising he sold his farms in 111. 
and again turned his face westward to once more pioneer in a 
new country and moved to Holdrege, Neb., where he was sur- 
rounded by his seven remaining children. He continued his 
life of activity and usefulness to his lasl illness, being a great 
student and a deep thinker, making use of llu^ latin and algebra 
he had taught many years before, in helping many a student out 
of school. He never was a member of any church, but was a 
friend and helper of them all and very liberal and charitable in 
his every day life. He was always interested in the political 
affairs of his country and a staunch supporter of the Republican 
party. Mr. Doe held various offices in his precinct and served 
on the school board for many years as Pres. After a long and 
useful life, given to profound study and meditation on political, 
religious, ethical and educational problems along with the ac- 

222 The Decendants of Nicholas Doe 

tivities of farm management, were laid aside and after a brief 
illness, he died, as he had lived for 81 years, 4 mos., 3 days, full 
of courage and conviction that he was "willing to do as the Lord 
sees best" as he remarked just as his spirit was about to take its 
flight. He was buried in Prairie Home Cemetery, Holdrege, 
Neb., Aug. 15, 1899.

Memories of Judge Doe. 

It is now twenty years since Judge Doe passed away, but the 
impetus and direction given by him to reform measures in the 
administration of justice have steadily gone forward, — seemingly 
as he would have wished had he been alive to observe. When it 
is considered what he accomplished by way of reform in judicial 
procedures and methods of proof in a little over a quarter of a 
century — ^all of which have come to us as a priceless heritage — we 
stand with uncovered head before the spirit of a man whose like 
is seen but seldom in the cycle of a century. 

At this meeting measures that make for still further progress 
in this direction are to be considered, and this fact calls to mind 
this great pioneer in judicial reform, who fought great battles 
in the early years and blazed the way to a rational administration 

232 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

of the law. A recital and analysis of what Judge Doe accom- 
plished in these respects, or as a profound expositor of the com- 
mon law, is not within the scope of these remarks, — the time is 
too limited for such a task and the occasion does not require it. 
Brother Hening in an article of much merit has fully spoken of 
his work and told with force of his great and beneficent influence 
upon the jurisprudence of this and future generations; and Broth- 
er S. C. Eastman has written an interesting article on the sub- 
ject from a diPferent point of view. Nor shall I attempt a com- 
plete memoir of Judge Doe, for none more admirable could be 
written than the one by Judge Jeremiah Smith, delivered before 
this Association'in 1897. But there are certain traits and char- 
acteristics; certain ways and methods of achieving ends; certain 
qualities and impulses that mark the inner man and the finer 
sensibilities of this great judge that I ,desire briefly to refer to. 
A consideration thereof gives us a better understanding — a clearer 
conception, of the human side of his nature, and throws light 
upon the purposes and objects to be attained by the great re- 
forms that he inaugurated. 

Charles Doe was born in Derry, N. H., April 11, 1830. "Early 
in his childhood the family returned to their former residence 
in Somersworth (now Rollinsford), N. H., and took up their abode 
in the old homestead of the Ricker family." The house was built 
in 1796 as an old-time inn by Ebenezer Ricker, the maternal 
grandfather of Judge Doe. It was a mansion of much dignity, 
the better type of the colonial country habitation. Dr. Timothy 
Dwight, former President of Yale, in his "Travels in New Eng- 
land and New York" (1821), speaks of stopping at Captain 
Ricker's as follows: "This gentleman (for he amply merits the 
title) had just buried his wife, and quitted the business of an 
Innkeeper. With some persuasion he consented, however, to 
lodge us; but with evident apprehensions that we should find 
less agreeable accommodations than we wished. The treatment 
which we received from him and all his was such as favorite 
friends might have expected from a hospitable and well bred 
family. I never found an Inn more agreeable." 

After his graduation from Dartmouth College, in 1849, Charles 
Doe entered the office of Daniel M. Christie of Dover and began 
the study of law. Mr. Christie was a great lawyer in the strictest 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 233 

and best sense of the term. Not only was he learned in all that 
the books of the period had in store but he was a patient, thor- 
ough and constant worker, with a large and lucrative practice, — 
a man of the highest integrity and of great intellectual force. It 
was an ideal office for any young man to study in, and particu- 
larly so for one of the ability and genius of young Doe. That 
he made the most of his opportunities no question can arise. 
He at once, became immersed in an atmosphere of law and found 
that he was living in a very natural element. He had profound 
respect and admiration for his teacher and often spoke of him 
in terms of high approval. He told me that no student would 
have dared to read a newspaper in the office; that he never even 
saw one there. It was a place for serious, unremitting work, 
where the length of day was based upon no eight-hour plan, nor 
its ending upon the setting of the sun. He said that whenever 
Mr. Christie's advice was sought upon any point, no matter how 
plain it maj^ have been, he gave no answer to the client at the 
time. The question was written down and the client told when 
he could call again. Mr. Christie's reason for this was that 
no haphazard answer should ever be given upon a point of law. 
The statute or authorities should carefully be looked up and ex- 
amined before an opinion should be advanced. Besides, as 
Judge Doe said, he probably thought that a client would value 
advice more highly that was given after such careful examination 
than he would had it been given him in an offhand manner at 
the time. 

He began the practice of law at Dover in 1854 and continued 
there until he was appointed to the bench, having the late Charles 
W. Woodman as a partner for much of the time. Soon after he 
opened office he received the appointment of County Solicitor 
which he held for two and one-half years. He had important 
criminal cases to consider and dispose of and he discharged such 
duties with courage and ability. He also had a good and steadily 
increasing practice in civil business. Between the time he opened 
office and his appointment to the bench, — a period of about five 
years, — he was entered of record as attorney in 223 different 
cases on the Strafford County docket.. And some of them were 
of much importance, — cases wherein Daniel M. Christie and 
John P. Hale were lawyers on the opposing side. Had he con- 

234 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

tinued in the ranks of the active practitioner it is interesting to 
consider what he might therein have accomphshed. It is certain 
that he would have taken a high rank among the great trial law- 
yers of the country. Those of us who were fortunate enough to 
hear, at Concord, his masterful cross examination of Cook, for 
two hours, in a phase of the Buzzell murder trial, know something 
of his great abilities in this direction. 

Judge Smith says: "Charles Doe, though loving the law 
for its own sake, was not wholly absorbed in the practice of his 
profession. He earnestly entered into politics. His father 
was one of the old war horses of the Democracy and the son 
naturally attached himself to the same party. He was Assistant 
Clerk of the State Senate in 1853 and 1854; and was active as a 
stump speaker in the excited campaigns which followed the re- 
peal of the Missouri Compromise. All this time * * * he was 
looking forward to a legal future rather than to political distinc- 
tion. Stump speaking was taken up to overcome the extreme 
bashfulness of his early years." Judge Doe told me, also, what 
is quoted above with the addition that he spoke in every school- 
house in the county, and as he dwelt upon the reminiscence he 
laughingly remarked that the first of those speeches were rather 
disconnected talks, but added that the experience did him a 
world of good in the confidence he gained thereby and the ability 
to think and express himself upon his feet. Apparently he con- 
tinued to be a strong adherent of the Democratic party until 
the spring of 1859, at which time he became an active and ardent 
speaker for Republican principles. He prepared his speeches 
with much care, — not by writing them out in full, but by topics 
or head notes with clippings to illustrate. I recently saw a 
volume of speeches of the distinguished statesmen of the decade 
before the war which Judge Doc had had bound. On the inside 
of the first cover was the following written in his hand: "Upon 
the following authorities I founded stump speeches during the 
canvass for the State Election March, 1859." Within the volun e 
were m_any loose narrow sheets upon each of which the topics 
of a speech were written and newspaper cuttings which were to 
be read and commented on when the proper time arrived. 

Charles Doe was appointed an associate justice of the Supreme 
Judicial Court on September 23, 1859, — when he was only 29 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 285 

years of age. He had then irade his irark in the judicial workl 
or such n:en as Daniel M. Christie and Cahnan Alarston would 
not have "strongly recommended his appointrnxCnt." Judge 
Smith says: "At the start there was a strong political prejudice 
against him. This obstacle, if it had been the only one, he would 
soon have overcome by his immediate manifestation of ability 
and impartiality. But there were other causes of offense which 
alienated from him some lawyers who would naturally have been 
his closest friends. He was, from the very beginning, a reformer. 
He insisted upon having cases tried civilly, expeditiously and 
upon the merits. Somx bar leaders were unwilling to change the 
habits of a lifetimie at the bidding of a younger man. The result 
in certain counties was a somewhat stormy season, which would 
have induced the majority of new judges either to submit to the 
old regime or resign their office in despair. Not so with Judge 
Doe. He stood his ground and carried his main points." While 
I was a law student in his office he told me among many matters 
of the struggles that he underwent in bringing about the reforms 
referred to. He had seen in his five years' practice women and 
children and even men so controlled by the overbearing and coer- 
cing manner of some lawyers on cross examination, that in an 
effort to bring truth to light they brought falsehood in its stead. 
And he resolved, as did Abraham Lincoln when he witnessed for 
the first time the sale of slaves in the auction room at New Or- 
leans, that if ever he got a chance to hit that practice he'd hit 
it hard. And this he did. Almost the first occasion he had to 
act in this direction was in a case where Mr. Christie, his old pre- 
ceptor, was the offender. Mr. Christie was pursuing hard a 
timid witness who, under the spell of his great personality, seemed 
unable to express even a single thought. Judge Doe suggested 
that he try a milder and less vigorous style of questioning; but 
the habit of years was so engrafted in the great man's nature 
that it was hard for him to change. And when he resumed it 
was in the same commanding and dem.anding way. The Judge 
then mildly but firmly insisted that this style of cross examina- 
tion must end. A hush fell over the court room in expectation of 
a conflict between the leader and the Court. Mr. Christie hes- 
itated, — made no reply — sat down a, then arose and ex- 
amined the witness in a manner most commendable. Judge 

236 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

Doe, who told me of the incident, said that he was ever grateful 
to Mr. Christie for his generous conduct in submitting gracefully 
on this occasion, and he explained his yielding without a conflict 
upon the ground that Mr. Christie regarded him as one of his 
boys, and was anxious for him to succeed. The first victory in 
the great war for reform court procedure was therefore won. 

Another episode of a similar character occurred in an encounter 
with General Oilman Marston of Exeter. The General, as all of 
us know, was a man at the very height of his profession, a most 
able lawyer, a strong advocate, but when angered or aroused he 
was a good man to let alone. He, like Mr. Christie, had recom- 
mended Judge Doe for the bench, and had a very high regard for 
the young man's talent. On one occasion at Exeter where the 
Judge was presiding the General was shaking his finger in a wit- 
ness' face and pressing him beyond what the Judge thought was 
due and proper. Judge Doe suggested to the General that he 
refrain from the method he was using to elicit testimony and adopt 
a more conciliatory manner. But the General was not made to 
do business in that way. He muttered something to himself 
and charged upon the witness with redoubled violence. The 
Judge then turned to the witness and said: "Mr. Witness: 
You need not answer any more of the lawyer's questions until he 
asks them in a proper manner." The General glared at the Court 
a moment, swore audibly, gathered up his papers on the table 
with both arms and left the room. The noon hour of adjourn- 
ment having arrived, an intermission was taken until 2 o'clock. 
The General had been in the habit of calling upon the Judge 
quite frequently on Sunday afternoons. When the latter left 
the court room he saw the General, with a cigar in his mouth 
which he was nervously chewing, walking up and down the 
corridor muttering to himself. The Judge walked up to him, 
placed his hand upon his shoulder a)id said: "General, are you 
coming over to see me Sunday?" "Not by a damned sight," 
was the General's instant answer. The Judge laughingly took 
his leave. The matter drifted along for several weeks when one 
Monday at dinner time the Judge knocked at the General's 
house and the door was opened by Mary, his faithful house- 
keeper. Interview: 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 237 

]\Iary: "Oh, Judge Doe, I'm glad to see you; we have only 
pudding and milk for dinner or I'd ask you to come in." 

Judge Doe: "Pudding and milk is my favorite dish, Mary. 
I think I must have some of it." 

And pushing past the astonished housekeeper the Judge walked 
into the dining room where the General was disposing of a bowl 
of the happy combination, seated himself at the table by the side 
of his host, and said: "General, please pass the pudding and 
milk?" It was not long before the two great men were talking 
together as delightedly as two children who had "quarreled and 
made up." Mary was delighted to see them walking down to the 
General's office arm in arm. A little later in the day a local 
lawyer met the General and accosting him said: "How is it that 
you have made up with the Judge?" To which the General 
replied: "How in thunder can you keep mad with a man who 
walks into your house, uninvited, and asks you to pass the pud- 
ding and milk?" This incident not only marks another step 
forward in reform practice of the state, but it also shows what 
diplomacy the Judge possessed when he had anything difficult 
to accomplish. He would not allow the incident just related to 
annoy him, and he brought about the old delightful relations with 
the General that had existed before and which continued to exist 
between them until the General's death. 

Judge Doe soon brought about other changes for the better 
in the simple matter of court practices or formalities. One of 
these was that of sheriff escorting the judge to and from the 
court house. Formerly it was necessary for the sheriff to carry 
a drawn sword, but a long time ago the sword part of the for- 
mality was abandoned, after which the sheriff, clothed in his 
own dignity, was sufficient for the judge's protection. But even 
this simple practice received its death knell early in Judge Doe's 
judicial career. It happened at Manchester when Daniel L. 
Stevens, a deputy sheriff, called at the Manchester House for 
escort duty. Whereupon something like this took place: 
Judge Doe: "Hello, Dan. What are you here for?" 
Mr. Stevens: "To escort Your Honor to the court room." 
Judge Doe: "Don't bother about me, Dan. I'U be over in a 
little while. If folks see us together they'll say, 'What bounty 
jumper is Dan running in now?' " 

238 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

And thus the old practice was never itself again. For some 
time thereafter an irregular attempt was made to escort other 
judges to the room, but the old formality at last was wholly 
abandoned. The Court now sees the sheriff for the first time in 
the term when he appears in the court room on the opening day. 

Another of these practices, harmless enough in itself but a 
waste of time and totally useless except to furnish entertainment 
for the idlers on the spectators' seats, was the formal proclama- 
tion at the opening and the closing of every half-day session of 
the Court. The sheriffs rather liked to make the rafters ring 
with their sonorous "Hear ye. Hear ye. Hear ye. Come into 
court," &c., but the Judge had other business to attend to and 
did not care to listen to such declamations, stirring though they 
were. He therefore took intermissions or recesses rather than 
adjournments, and the only proclamations made therefor he made 
himself, which generally were very brief, as for instance, "Come 
in at two." At first the lack of these formalities made some of 
the lawyers, — particularly those from outside the state, feel 
that something had been overlooked, but the time saved bj^ the 
omission of this ceremony seems now to be ample compensation 
for the loss. Some time after the change in this respect Lawyer 
Rice of Worcester was in the midst of a protracted argument in 
the court house at Keene. The hour of twelve had arrived and 
Judge Doe announcing in his quiet, rapid way, "Come in at two," 
slipped from the bench and immediately left the room. Rice, 
who had not heard the Judge nor noticed that he had left, con- 
tinued with the talk whereupon Batch, the opposing lawyer, 
leaning over the table said: "Hadn't you better stop. Brother 
Rice? The Court has gone." "Gone, — gone where?" and 
looking around realized for the first time that the bench was 
vacant. Batch replied, "Why, gone to dinner, — the Court's 
adjourned." Rice asked, ''When did it adjourn?" To which 
Batch answered, "Why, a minute ago." Rice then smilingly 
said to the jury that he thought he had better wait until the 
Judge returned, and later remarked to some of the lawyers that 
this was the quickest, quietest and most infonnul adjournment 
that he had ever seen. 

Judge Doe believed that the time of the Court should be de- 
voted to the court work without any unnecessary ceremony or 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 239 

delay. It was for the purpose of administering justice in a way 
that was speedy, inexpensive and certain, and he was impatient 
with anything that tended to the contrary. 

On one occasion when he was about to open Court at Man- 
chester he was inquired of by the sheriff what clergyman he 
should invite to offer prayer. The Judge replied that it didn't 
matter provided he would be brief, — remarking further that 
"too much valuable time of the court is ofttimes taken by long 
prayers." The sheriff in his quest for the right type of clergy- 
man met the Rev. Dr. Buckley of the Methodist Church and 
told him what was wanted, saying further that the quicker he 
earned his $2 fee the better it would please the Court. The 
Reverend said he thought he could satisfy the Court in this 
respect, and taking his place beside the Judge arose to his solemn 
duty. He said: "Oh Lord bless this court and bless these 
lawyers. Make them to feel that life is short, that time is pre- 
cious and should not be wasted in empty declamation. For 
Christ's sake. Amen." Judge Doe turned to Dr. Buckley 
and said: "That's a great prayer, a model prayer. It ought 
to be printed and preserved with the records of the court." 

After being appointed to the bench Judge Doe took up his resi- 
dence at Portsmouth. He lived there until his marriage in 1865. 
While there he became acquainted with a learned but eccentric 
gentleman of the name of Elwin, a scholar of wide attainments, 
who could speak fluently in several languages. He was a very 
interesting man to meet, and beyond all else he prided himself on 
his ability to outwalk anyone in all the country round. His plan 
was to invite his victim to a walk and then strike out across the 
country until his companion would cry ou*t : "Enough." Judge 
Doe, who knew that he was being marked as a sacrifice, when 
the time should come, prepared himself for the conflict. He 
bought all kind of shoes until he found the proper pair and then 
practiced at early morn and after dark until he felt ready for 
the expected invitation. It came, and the pedestrians started 
off across the fields in the direction of Agamenticus. Judge Doe 
said Elwin would talk with great ability, and with a never failing 
flow of words, upon subjects very interesting, and this, too, as 
they walked over ploughed ground, through bushes and into 
wide streams where the water would reach far above their knees. 

240 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

They reached Agamenticus in the afternoon and then struck off 
toward Cape Neddick. On reaching there at Elwin's suggestion 
they stopped at a house all night and in the morning retraced 
their steps to Portsmouth. Judge Doe took much pride in the 
fact that Elwin could not make him yield as he had expected 
him to do. 

Upon his marriage he took up his residence in the home at 
RoUinsford where he had spent his youth. The house is spacious 
and is well preserved, dignified in its general appearance and fur- 
nished simply, with all the needs of comfort and high living. 
Large grounds surround it, wherein the Judge planted trees that 
soon grew to shade him in his walks, and gardens of rare excel- 
lence where vegetables, fruit and flowers grew in marked abund- 
dance. In a large front room, on the lower floor, where the sun- 
hght poured into every corner, was the great man's study. 
From floor to ceiling, on every inch of wall, were law books that 
became his friends. And seated there in the quiet of his sur- 
roundings, with a genius rarely equalled for intense, mental 
labor, he worked out those immortal problems and results that 
have given us today the best working system of jurisprudence 
in the world, and wrote his name ineffaceably high up on the 
walls of fame. 

In the spring of 1878 I entered his office as a student and 
remained there with him for about two years. I thereby had an 
opportunity of knowing him as he was in private life, and what 
were the methods of his daily work. His family relations were 
certainly ideal. Mrs. Doe was a woman of great intellectual 
endowment, delightful as a companion, and a helpmeet in the 
best and highest sense of the term. Ever solicitous for his 
welfare, she quietly and effectually aided him in every way to- 
ward the accomplishment of his great life work. She read the 
magazines, reviews and papers of the day and marked for his 
perusal those matters that she felt that he should know. It was 
a peaceful home and one best suited for the giving undivided 
thought to the problems he was called upon to solve. 

In 1887 he and his son Perley went abroad, visiting Great 
Britain, France, The Netherlands and Belgium. For a long while 
he had cherished the thought of such a tour. At the time, he 
was much in need of change and rest. A serious illness in the 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 241 

spring, coming after a long period of his intense mental applica- 
tion, had brought him to a point where he was called upon to 
rest or break. The journey had for him much that was of benefit 
and pleasure. He visited the historic scenes and buildings in 
England and attended many of the sessions of the Court. All 
this, with his complete knowledge of the general and constitu- 
tional history of England and the history of the common law 
was a satisfying recreation. 

Of special interest was his visit to the battlefield of Waterloo. 
He was thoroughly conversant with every point and part of that 
historic ground. He was a great admirer of the genius of the 
great captain who there met the defeat from which he never rose. 
I know of no more thorough and enthusiastic student of the Battle 
of Waterloo than was he. His knowledge of all the details of 
this great conflict was comprehensive and exact. I have re- 
cently examined one of his volumes upon the subject and found 
it full of interesting marginal notes upon the text. At several 
places the note was: "Improl^able." At another where the 
author cast blame upon Grouchy for faiUng, as he claimed, to 
apprehend his mission in a certain instance Judge Doe had min- 
uted: "All wrong. He did act intelligently in obeying orders, 
exactly, with what energy he had." And where in Wellington's 
memorandum it appears "that the allied British and Netherland 
army was in line at Quatre Bras," Judge Doe notes merely: 
"Horrible lie." The markings and comments that he made, all 
through the book, indicate a complete understanding of the moves 
or failure to move on the part of all the armies in that great 
struggle. When he came away he brought from the battlefield 
mementos that are still preserved. I have just seen a collection 
of wheat kernels that he gathered growing there. 

Sometime after his return he was sitting at a trial at Manches- 
ter when Mr. Luce, the clerk, having heard that he had sent to 
General Marston a flower which he had gathered from the 
battlefield, asked him if he was interested in reading the accounts 
of Waterloo. Judge Doe said that he was and that he had read 
about everything that had been printed on the subject. Mr. 
Luce mentioned the account that Victor Hugo had written, in 
isolated chapters, in Les Miserables, but Judge Doe had not read 
nor heard of it. A copy was procured for him. He placed it 

242 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

just left of his note book on the bench and began to read. At 
times, brought back to the work at hand by 'T object, Your 
Honor," he vvould instantly rule, sustaining or overruling the 
objection raised, and then his eyes would seek the page that they 
had left when he was interrupted. The short, crisp sentences 
and vivid portrayal of the subject by the great writer was such 
as keenly to awaken his interest, and each time, shortly after 
he began to read, he was thoroughly absorbed, — away on the 
great battlefield in Belgium. 

Judge Doe, for many years, found it necessary to visit Boston 
to consult authorities in those larger libraries where the reports 
of every jurisdiction can be found. But the time came when the 
wearisome journey to and from, and the noise and confusion of 
the city became so irksome and distasteful to him that he looked 
for other mieans of gaining what he sought. Some years before 
he died he told me he was being relieved from the burden of these 
journeys, — that he had found a "wonderful young man" who was 
examining the authorities for him and sending him the result 
of his investigations. When, in 1904, I read the dedication of 
Professor Wigmore's unrivalled masterpiece on Evidence, "To 
the memory of the public services and the private friendship of 
two masters in the law of evidence, Charles Doe of New Hamp- 
shire, Judge and Reformer, and James Bradley Theyer of Massa- 
chusetts, Historian and Teacher," I wondered if the author of 
this great work was not the "wonderful young man" that Judge 
Doe, years before, had spoken of. And so it proved to be. Re- 
cently I wrote to Professor Wigmore, calling his attention to this 
dedication and stated that I was about to prepare the article 
I am now reading. I assured him that it would be of great in- 
terest to me and others to know something of the "Private 
Friendship" that existed between him and Judge Doe and to 
learn in what respect he considered him to have been a Reformer. 
He very courteously replied to my inquiries as follows : 

Chicago, 111., 
Mar. 27, 1916. 
Dear Judge Pike: 

Replying to your recent letters, I offer a few remarks about 
Judge Doe. I have, however, much less to tell than you might 
suppose. I follow your order of topics: 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 243 

1. My "Private Friendship" with him. In the winter of 
87' and '88, when I was just opening a law office, he sent down 
to Mr. Vaughan, hbrarian of the Social Law Library in Boston, 
for some one to collect authorities for him. The Court was 
several years behind, in its published reports, and in fact 
the opinions had never been written. Judge Doe had about 
15 cases for his share of arrears, at least 15 which required special 
research. Mr. Vaughan recommended me; and I did the work 
during the ensuing years. I cast my results into the form of 
judicial opinions; and being much flattered by the task given me, 
I expected to be able to recognize my handiwork in the published 
opinions. But — I frankly admit that I never could find any 
resemblance at all between what I sent and what he turned out. 
Master mind that he was, my stuff was simply raw material to 
him, and he used it, or cast it out as he found fit. I had simply 
been a searcher, to him, and he made his own use of it in his 
own way. 

And yet he found no fault with what I sent him. The en- 
closed letters testify that he obtained from me as much or more 
than he expected. But the letters are so personal that they will 
be of no use for your purpose. The last one, apropos of my in- 
tended departure for Japan, in 1889, to be professor of law, is 
however, a revelation of his direct common sense way of looking 
at things. I treasure it among my archives. It would be a 
good sermon for any young man. 

2. I considered him a "reformer" in the sense that all 
judges ought to be but few judges are, viz.; in casting off the 
shackles of false precedent and revising unsound principles with- 
out impotently handing reform over to the legislature, as most 
judges feel obliged to do. His opinions in Darling os. Westmore- 
land & State vs. Pike illustrate what I mean. He cleaned house 
of a lot of narrow rules which were threatening to fix themselves 
in the law and those opinions turned the tide all over the country. 
He measured a rule by its present good sense and sound principle; 
and he always could find some larger principle by which to 
straighten out the crooked angle in which the law had become 
temporarily lodged. And this is almost always feasible. 

3. I never traced out his reforming principles outside of 
the Law of Evidence. I am told that he did the same thing for 
procedure in general. Hening has said something about that. 

244 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

4. I called and still call him a "reformer" in the above 
sense, i. e., not in the legislative sense, but in the sense in which 
all supreme judges can be and ought to be, if they have the 
strong will and self confidence that he had, "possunt quia posse 
videntur". If all judges in their day and generation went about 
as he did, we should not now be in the helpless tangle which 
forces us to run to the incompetent legislature for every petty 

I hope I have given you something that may help. 
Sincerely yours, 


A strange coincidence was that he fell dead on the railroad 
platform in '98 on the very morning on which we came, in our 
Torts class, to his celebrated opion in the Mink case, and I was 
descanting to my class on the greatness of the writer of that 

J. H. W. 

P. S. You will see from the letters that I never met him 
personally. But his letters meant so much to me in my profes- 
sional beginnings, by the encouragement which so warms a 
young man's heart, and they showed so kindly an interest, that 
I ever entertained a deep affection, and I took the occasion of 
my book's appearance to try to repay the debt publicly. His 
picture has for twenty years hung over my desk, daily before 
my eyes.

The letter of Judge Doe to Professor Wigmore on the latter's 
intended departure for Japan is a most 'lluminating one. A vein 
of sadness runs through it from first to last. His intense mental 
application and a period of illness, not long before, had impaired 
his physical powers, and had left its impress upon his mind. He 
wished to sound a warning of the dangers that lie in the pathway 
of ambitious men and to point out a way by which these dangers 
could be shunned. That portion, of especial interest, is as follows: 

Salmon Falls, N. H., 
July 9, '89. 

Hro. Wiqniore: Your selection for the work in Japan is a 
strong testimonial of the quality of your work as a writei-, & 
probably as a student at the law school & in college. 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 245 

The greatest danger of men of your stamp generally is in 
overwork & a violation of the la .vs of health of which so few have 
any knowledge. It is not probable that you will reach the age of 
fifty with a sound constitution, or any vigor or power of endur- 
ance capable of accomplishing anything. You will damage your 
body in some way so as to make life a burden & probably bring 
it to an early close. You will be influenced by no caution on the 
subject. No such man ever heeds any warning but actual disa- 
bility produced by excessive continuous labor & lack of exercise, 
sleep & regular hours. 

I trust you will be fortunate in your companion. The wives 
of the present generation of professional men are generally, in 
one way or another (often in more than one), a heavy burden & 
incumbrance, — a drain upon the time, the attention, the comfort 
& the mental & financial strength of the unhappy victims. I 
know more than one able man whose success at the bar has been 
made impossible by domestic distraction, extravagance, folly & 
misery. A young woman of education and refinement, content 
with her lot & willing & able to be anything but a constant annoy- 
ance & inordinate expense to her husband, has become a rare bird. 

I hope you will both begin right, with sensible notions of 
expenditure, contentment & harmony, & thus stand some chance 
of attaining that position of honor and independence to which 
your talents are entitled. A vulgar notion of display & an affec- 
tation of social rank, are besetting sins, so universal & so ruinous, 
that an old man fails in his duty when he neglects a fair oppor- 
tunity to warn every young person who is worthy of a high place 
in the- world. With due labor you are sure of fulfilling your am- 
bition. Without an economical, unpretending, peaceable, quiet & 
happy home the necessary continuous, intense & undisturbed 
mental application is impossible. * * * 

With the books he was consulting piled around him on 
chairs and tables, and the floor well covered by others resting 
on their edges, the Judge would sit at his study table and write 
for hours. At times he would lay down the pen and sit wrapped 
in thought until the idea he was seeking to evolve was clear, 
and then the writing would begin again. He worked quietly, 
rapidly and to the point. At intervals he would leave the study 
for his exercise, — ^for a walk down through the grove or to the 

246 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

village for his mail. Or he would go into the garden to direct the 
workmen in their duties. When he returned it was generally 
with an expression of satisfaction that the walk had cleared his 
head and that he was again ready for the affray. 

He was a firm believer in a generous supply of good fresh 
air to breathe. In study and in sleeping rooms the windows 
were, at times, removed; and in the court room ventilation was 
the first thing that commanded his attention. He considered 
th€ taking of such provisions a vital need to those who were com- 
pelled to stay in court; and he believed that their requirements 
should be considered in preference to the wishes of those who were 
present from curiosity alone. Some few have regarded his ideas, 
in this respect, a subject for humorous comment or ridicule. But 
they did not understand. Judge Doe was a man who always 
sought to find the reason for an act, and in the finding, wrong 
practices and customs were often overthrown. We are all, now, 
coming to regard pure air as necessary for our proper living, — 
as seen by our sleeping porches and improved methods for ventila- 
tion. This, and every other course or practice concerning which 
the idle or the ignorant have criticized him for a departure from 
some established mode or custom, will be found resting solidly 
upon principles of good sound common sense, and not upon the 
silly notion or idea of those who feel that things ordained as 
fashion, are always right. 

Whenever Judge Doe was tired or exhausted he went to bed 
whether it was the day time or the night. His retiring by day 
generally occurred, however, upon his return from the law term 
consultations, upon the arrival of the morning train. A few 
hours' sleep restored him to his normal state and then he would 
be ready to apply himself to the many questions that the meeting 
had brought up. 

It was a delight to labor in his study under the inspiration 
of his presence. Whenever I asked him questions about princi- 
ples, that seemed to me obscure, he would instantly lay aside 
his work and give such illuminating answers that the subjects 
would stand out clear without a question or a doubt remaining. 
These answers or explanations would be lectures, in effect, upon 
the principles of law involved. And often he would rest from his 
work at hand and give a talk on some important subject most 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 247 

helpful to a student who in time would practice law. I recall 
that one talk was on "Honesty," — as a necessary asset of every 
lawyer. Another was on "Tact," and its importance to a lawyer 
if he would succeed. All of these talks made reference to differ- 
ent law^yers in the state and received force as their conduct illus- 
trated the points he desired to bring out. 

His children received their early education at home from 
private instructors. This education included not only the ordi- 
nary branches of the common school but also French and music. 
The text-books that were used in all the branches were the result 
of infinite investigation on the Judge's part, a vast number, by 
many authors, were examined and educators consulted with a 
view of procuring the most advanced and best system that could 
be had. No one ever bestowed more solicitude and effort for 
the right education of his children than Judge Doe bestowed on 

I have heard him say that he didn't expect or want to see his 
children become musicians, but he believed the discipline of 
mind and muscles derived from being taught to sing and play 
was worth the effort and time put into this branch of their edu- 
cation. I do not think that he was a lover of music himself, al- 
though I understand he really owned and played a flute in his 
younger days. He told me that, on one occasion, he attended 
an opera. I don't know how it was that he happened to attend. 
It is sufficient that he did. He said he stood the performance 
pretty well until the prima donna reached a climax and gave out 
some high and piercing notes — a sweep into the very heavens 
— and then, he thought he should go wild. He actually had to 
put his fingers in his ears to shut out the sound and finally felt 
obliged to leave the house, which, at the time, was thundering 
with applause. He could see no sense or satisfaction in listening 
to such an exhibition, but he recalled this incident in his life 
with much amusement. 

All kinds of persons called upon him at his study with mis- 
sions too numerous and varied to enumerate. The man who 
showed that he was square and tried to do his best was sure to 
get, if not what he sought, help of a very useful and material 
kind. But with the man of pretence, the imposter, he had little 
patience; and a few crisp words would generally be sufficient to 

248 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

convince him that his ireasure had been taken and his scheme 
was understood. He loved to meet and talk with people in all 
the various walks of life; to get their point of view in looking at 
the fundamental questions of the day. He gained much profit 
and amusem^ent from such interviews. 

I used to think he could read one's character as quickly as 
anyone I ever knew. A look into the face, — a few inquiries, with 
answers given, and the measure of the man was taken. He would 
walk through a crowd of people turning neither to the right nor 
left and yet know who was present and much of what was in their 
minds. I remember, once, of his calling a few minutes at a house 
where an old woman lived who had had much trouble and was 
badly broken. Neither knew who the other was but when he 
came away he said: "Poor woman, what disappointments she 
must have had!" The remark was very true and he had read 
it all in her wrinkled face and trembling voice. 

People who did not know might have thought him to be 
cold and reticent but nothing could be farther from the truth. 
The latch string of his house was always out, and his friends were 
sure of receiving a cordial greeting at his hands. Sitting in his 
study or under the spreading branches of the trees that shaded 
his yard he would talk delightfully for hours at a time. He told 
a story well, and his listener's enjoyment of the tale was enhanced 
by the Judge's pleasure and inimitable manner in relating it. 

He was kind and generous to everyone in need. The poor 
in the vicinity had much to thank him for in that he never failed 
to minister to their comfort and their happiness. Although many 
could not read the thoughts and emotions that were passing in 
the busy brain, behind the impenetrable mask of this great man's 
countenance, I know that he had one of the kindest hearts that 
ever beat in human breast. 

And he was charitable withal. Condemned as he was, at 
times, by those who did not understand, he never lost his temper 
or showed enmity in return. He made no explanation of his 
acts, did not reply, and was not moved to change his course from 
that which duty pointed out. I remember once when he had 
spoken of the great ability of a certain man he added, half laugh- 
ingly, "but he doesn't think much of me. He has threatened on 
the public streets to have me impeached." When I consider how 

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 249 

serene, how grand he was under violent criticism and assault, 
he seems to have been like 

" * * * some tall cliff that lifts its awful form, 
Swells from the vale and midway leaves the storm. 

Tho round its breast the rolling clouds are spread 
Eternal sunshine settles on its head.'' 
In speaking of his charitable qualities I am reminded of 
many of his remarks that make allowances for the shortcoming of 
others. More than once I have heard him say when referring 
to some unfortunate man whose transgressions had brought him 
to his punishment: "Mr. Pike, suppose you and I had been born 
with the same inherited tendencies; brought up under the same 
vicious influences; with no more will power than he has, and sub- 
jected to the same temptation that he has been; do you suppose 
that we should come out of it any better than he has/ I douht it." 
After Judge Doe took up his residence at Rollinsford he 
attended the Unitarian church at Dover with a reasonable degree 
of regularity. This church was the one out of which arose the 
celebrated case of Hale vs. I^'verett wherein he wrote a most ex- 
haustive and elaborate opinion. In his later years he attended 
church but rarely — not that there was change in his religious 
belief, but because he needed the Sabbath for his mental and 
physical relaxation and rest. Whether it was because he was 
thus seldom seen at church or because of his avowed liberal ut- 
terances, the rumor got abroad that he was not orthodox in his 
belief, — that he was a freethinker. Undoubtedly this was what 
induced a committee of women from a Universalist church in a 
neighboring village to call upon him with a view of securing finan- 
cial aid for their church and his attendance at its services. With 
a purpose to awaken his interest and enlist his sympathies they 
said to him: "Judge Doe, I believe you do not believe in Hell; 
we Universalists do not." To which he replied: "Oh, you are 
mistaken. If there is anything I feel sure of it is that there is a 
Hell, and nothing is more certain than that we are punished for 
our sins." The committee thereupon, much crestfallen, took 
their leave. The Judge was greatly amused at the incident and 
often related it with relish to his friends. 

All of us were greatly shocked when learning of his sudden 
death. He was on his way to Concord to attend a sitting of the 

250 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

law term when it occurred. He had his satchel with him, filled 
with papers that bore upon questions to be discussed. Among 
them were the ones relating to the case of State vs. Gerry, wherein 
Judge Carpenter, and some associates, had taken the position 
that the statute out of which the case arose was unconstitutional 
and void; Judge Doe that it was not. There had been long and 
earnest argu.ments on the question raised, and as the Judge started 
on his fatal journey he felt ready for the final conflict. Only 
three days before he had said to an associate who held his view, while 
showing him a draft of a tentative opinion, "I'm going to con- 
vince those gentlemen that they are wrong J' Poor man, he did 
not live to even meet with them again. The opinion in the case 
was handed down in June by a divided Court of 4 to 3 ; the statute 
was thereby held to be unconstitutional. 

Judge Doe was buried beside his first born son in Rollinsford, 
on the bank of the Piscataqua. On a natural elevation covered 
by a growth of pines, and far away from human habitation is a 
large boulder, on the face of which is inscribed the one word, 
"Doe." One standing there may look through branches to the 
broad and silent river at his feet. It is a peaceful spot in which 
to rest for one whose life was constant labor. No sound breaks 
in upon it save the sighing of the wind, and the voicing of the 
birds, among the trees. 

Brother Hening's final estimate of Judge Doe's influence and 
character is very fitting and I quote in part : 

"To exaggerate his influence upon the jurisprudence of New 
Hampshire would probably be impossible. * * * To compare 
and contrast him with other great common law Judges in the 
Old and in the New England and other states of the American 
Union and finally to assign him to some imaginary niche between 
well known English or American Judges, would be a task as 
difficult for the writer as the result would be unsatisfactory to the 
reader. But if a comparison should be attempted, his peers 
must certainly be sought among those few who have profoundly 
revolutionized existing ideas of common law administration and 
of the law of evidence, who have guided us by historical researches 
to the birth of legal conceptions and have skilfully separated 
legal truth from the matrix of circumstance."

The following in regard to Capt. Alvah Doe is copied 
from the "History of Parsonsfield, Maine." 

''He was educated at the common schools and at Effingham 
Academy. His early j^ears were passed on the homestead of 
his father, where he grew to manhood, surrounded by the 
refining influences of the home circle. He was of high moral 
culture, easy and agreeable manners, of pleasing social powers 
and prepossessing appearance, deservedly popular among his 
associates, and a general favorite among the masses. He had 
remarkable clearness of insight, the power of accurate observa- 
tion and a keen, patient and discriminating judgment. 

"In politics he was a democrat, and by his ability, shrewd, 
sagacious foresight and great popularity, soon became one 
of its acknowledged and trusted leaders. At the age of thirty- 
two he was honored by an election to the Legislature, and 
served for the years 1845 and 1846. In 1863 he was a member 
of the State Senate. He held various town offices acceptably 
to the people, and with honor and credit to himself. While 
enrolled in the militia he was elected as Captain of Company D., 
and later as Adjutant of Second Regiment of Infantry. He 

258 The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 

was one of the charter members of Charter Oak Lodge of Free 
and Accepted Masons, at Effingham, N. H., and was greatly 
interested in ah matters pertaining to the welfare and prosperity 
of the lodge, and was chosen as Master for four years. After 
a long and tedious illness he expired on the 4th day of July, 1885."

Mr. Doe was a long time member of the Free Baptist church 
of this town and was an earnest and faithful worker for the society. 
He was kind hearted, genial and had a strong personality, 
making friends wherever he went. He was a member of Rising 
Star Lodge, A. F. & A. M. of Newmarket. Mr. Doe had been 
in poor health since the first of the year, but had got better and 
was able to be around and work about his home until the Sunday 
before his death, when the intense heat overcame him, reaction 
of the heart set in and he remained in a stupor until his death 
early Thursday morning. 

Funeral .services were held at his late home in Milton, 
on Friday afternoon, and were largely' attended by the host of 
friends he had made during his short sojourn in that town. 
There was a profusion of beautiful flowers.

The Descendants of Nicholas Doe 317 

24, 1900, has done much to attain its standard and be of public 
service and utility. A complete business education is given 
here, practical and every day examples of modern commercial 
life being applied to the rules of study, and all metjiods in ac- 
counts, banking, and negotiating, are practiced with unfailing 
coventionalty. Shorthand and typewriting are special studies, 
and pupils in these are impressed and taught, if necessary, 
the importance of correct spelling, punctuation and rhetoric. 
Several capable assistants are employed, and five conveniently 
furnished and well lighted rooms are occupied in the Y. M. C. A. 
building, which location was taken last year. The school's 
new location and facilities in the Y. M. C. A. Building have 
assisted greatly in its development and progress, and new pupils 
are constantly applying and being registered, encouraging the 
belief that the attendance will be exceptionally large another 
season. Mr. H. N. Doe, the Principal, was borne in Maine, 
educated in our public schools, and the Castine Normal School. 
He was a teacher for years in the public schools, his department 
being the commercial branches, shorthand and typewriting. 
He has been in our city 12 years, and is considered an in- 
fluential factor in educational circles, a business man and citizen 
of esteem."
