INTRODUCTION 

I have been asked by the author to prepare a short introduction to 
the Foote Family History now in press. 

I comply with this request with pleasure for the opportunity it gives 
me to express my gratitude to the author for having undertaken this 
work and carried it forward to completion. 

We all know what such a work means to the author and compiler. 
To some extent it may be a labor of love, but, in the main, it requires 
infinite patience and long continued painstaking labor. Few, indeed, 
have the courage to undertake such a work, even where there is hope of 
some substantial financial reward. The sale of this book will be too limited 
to justify anj^ such hope, and we must credit our author with other and 
more disinterested motives. 

The descendants of Nathaniel Foote, the settler, now living, appre- 
ciate to the fullest extent the debt of gratitude which the family owes to 
Nathaniel Goodwin, who in 1849 rescued from fast approaching oblivion 
their pedigree and made possible the present work. Even so wall the 
remote descendants of the members of the present generation hold in 
highest esteem the memory of the author of this book for doing a similar 
and equally important work for their benefit. And such must be his 
chief reward. 

Accuracy is no doubt the chief desideratum in a work of this kind, 
but no amount of care and labor has been found sufficient in similar 
Avorks to insure against all errors. Until the work appears, we cannot, 
of course, know how far our author has been successful in this respect, 
but no matter with what care and accuracy the author may have done his 
part of the work, we may expect to find errors due to the carelessness or 
mistakes of the hundreds of different individuals, of all the different 
degrees of accuracy and carelessness, upon whom he has been compelled 
to rely for much of his information. 

Let us hope that on the whole this work will be found to compare 
favorably in respect of accuracy with other genealogical books. 

I venture to suggest to all who may discover errors that they send 
a correction to the author promptly for use in the first new edition that 
may be required. 

NATHANIEL FOOTE. 

Kochester, N. Y., September, 1907. 



PREFACE 



"With very few exceptions, the Footes in America all descended from 
either Nathaniel Foote, of Colchester, England, who came to Watertown, 
Mass., about 1630, or Pasco Foote, who settled in Salem, Mass., soon after, 
or from Richard Foote, of Cornwall, England, and later of Stafford Co., 
Va. That the first two were nearly related, if not brothers, there can be 
very little doubt. 

The following legend has been handed down by many different 
sources : ' ' Three brothers came from England in the brig ' Ann, ' landed 
at Plymouth, Mass., Nathaniel, Pasco and John (or Caleb). Nathaniel 
settled in Watertown, Mass. ; Pasco settled in Salem, Mass., and John (or 
Caleb) died without issue." 

Emigration to New England languished for ten years after the 
arrival of the ' ' IMayflower, ' ' and until the expedition by John Winthrop 
and Sir Richard Saltonstall, which numbered about 1,500, came over in 
the summer of 1630, very few colonists came over. 

It is very difficult to connect these emigrants with their ancestors in 
the Mother Country. 

In Burke 's Commoners, Vol. L, page 372, is an account of the Foote 
Family in Kent. It is stated that the family possessed large estates in 
the county of Cornwall prior to 1420. Thomas Foote was Lord Mayor of 
London in 1650. and there are many others of the family who have dis- 
tinguished themselves in the Mother Country. There are ten different 
armorial bearings, granted to as many different branches of the family 
who distinguished themselves. While it is very probable that this is all 
one family, yet we have not the positive proof at present. 

There is a tradition that our ancestors in England lived at the foot 
of a mountain at the time when surnames were adopted, and they called 
them Foote. The name was sometimes spelled Fotte or Foot. The latter 
is in use at the present time by a few members of the family. 

We have been compelled by lack of space to leave out several parts 
of the book that we had prepared for it, including lists of Revolutionary 
soldiers from the various States by the name of Foote. Pensioners of 
the Revolutionary War, College Graduates by the name of Foote, and 
biographical sketches of prominent members of the English branch. This 
material will be available for future use. 

In addition to the several thousand Footes here recorded, we have 
received a number of family records that we could not definitely connect 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 



with any of the several branches of the family. These records are on file, 
and if they can later (as I have no doubt many of them can) prove their 
connections, we shall be glad to make the record. 

In compiling this work, I have searched all of the Genealogies and 
Historical Works that I could find, including those at the Wordsworth 
Historical Library and State Library at Hartford, Ct., Vermont State 
Library, the Billings and Carnegie Library at Burlington, Vt., and 
jMiddlebury College Library, Middlebury, Vt. 

The family data of Nathaniel Foote in Nathaniel Goodwin's Gene- 
alogy of 1849 is herein included. Without this aid it would have been 
impossible, at this date, to make a work as complete as this. We have 
also included, by permission. Miss Brainard's pamphlet and that of Rev. 
J. B. Foote 's, on descendants of John Foote, and a large part of the data 
has been received direct from the living members of the family, and yet 
we realize that there are descendants who have not been reported. If 
you, dear reader, are one, and can trace your descent from any of these 
branches, do not fail to write at once, enclosing all the data and informa- 
tion you have, to A. W. Foote, Middlebury, Vt., and it matters not how 
many years have rolled away, someone will file the papers and it will be 
printed in the future in the Second Volume of this work. 

The numbers in parentheses following the name of a father are the 
numbers of his Father, Grandfather, Great-grandfather, and so forth, 
and number 1 is understood to be Nathaniel Foote, the Settler. By count- 
ing the numbers you will ascertain the generation. The numbers follow- 
ing the name of the wife of a son are the numbers of their children. 

By this system the following generations can easily be recorded and 
printed in the Second Volume. The children of a daughter are indicated 
by figures (1), her grandchildren by letters (a), the great-grandchildren 
by Roman numerals (i), the great-great-grandchildren by Roman 
numerals and figures (il). A name in parentheses indicates the maiden 
name of the mother. When the birth-place is not given it is understood 
to be at the place given as the residence of the parents. 

The following are explanations of the abbreviations used: Abt., 
about; ae., aged; b., born; bldg., building; ch., children; Ch., Church; 
dau., daughter; d., died or dead; m., married; n. f. k., nothing further 
known; p., page; res., residence, resided, or resides; unm., unmarried; 
s. p., sine prole (without issue) ; wid., widow or widower; yr., year. 

I take this opportunity to thank the many friends who have assisted 
me in gathering this mass of family data. Miss Lucy A. Brainard, who, 
since publishing a pamphlet in 1886 on her own branch, has added a 
large amount of data in connection with her own great work, the 
Brainard-Brainerd Genealogy ; James Hall Foote, N. Y. ; John Crocker 
Foote, Belvidere, 111.; Harry Foote, Springville, N. Y. ; Dr. Winfield

The social pleasures derived from the Wethersfield meeting, and 
from the correspondence all over the country, have more than compen- 
sated me for the work.

THE NATHANIEL FOOTE MONUMENT. 

While we know that the remains of Nathaniel Foote, the Settler, and 
many of his family rest in the graveyard back of the old church of 
Wethersfield, yet it is a lamentable fact that there is not a stone in the 
whole yard with the name of foote on it. The stones have either been 
taken away or used for foundations many years ago, and we are not able 
to mark the exact locations of their graves. 

But we can locate the old Foote homestead lot, and this property 
extended out into what is now a public park at the foot of Broad Street, 
and it is the purpose of the association to erect a monument to Nathaniel 
Foote and his f amity on this public property and at the same time mark 
the original property. 

We hope to dedicate this monument in June, 1908. 



FOOTE COAT OF ARMS 

Arg. (silver), a chevron Sable (black), and in the dexter quarter a 
trefoil of the second (black) crest an oak tree proper (natural color). 
There are ten different Coats of Arms recorded in the College of Heralds 
to members of the Foote Family; five of these have the chevron and 
trefoil in the dexter quarter, with different crests. Maj. L, R. D. Fay ling, 
Geu. Manager of the International Bibliophile Society of New York, 
writing under date of May 7, 1907, says : 

"I have not the slightest doubt but that you have the authentic 
Foote Arms. In Europe, frequently the 'arms' of a family are officially 
'confirmed' by the 'College of Heralds' simply on the strength of a 
family having 'borne' such a 'coat' for three or more generations." 

The above Coat of Arms has been used by the Foote Family in 
America for two hundred and fifty years (250), as shown by the follow- 
ing letters: 

From Dr. Nathaniel Foote, of Colchester, Ct., dated Mar. 11, 1907. 
]\Iore than sixty-five (65) years ago my grandmother, Abigail Foote 
(No. 245), gave me a picture or fine engraving of the Foote Coat of 
Arms, about three inches square, which she told me was given to her by 
her grandfather, Nathaniel Foote (No. 25). In 1864 I had a steel plate 
engraved of the Coat of Arms, reduced in size, as sho^\^l on the letter 
head I sent you. The engravers who made it for me, and the printers 
who printed the stationery, are now deceased. 

Extract copied from letter of Daniel Elisha Foote. 
Jirah Isham Foote, Esq. Belvidere, 111., Dec. 11, 1894. 

Dear Sir, — In regard to the Foote Coat of Arms, I have in my pos- 
session what is said to be the original, and of which the one owned by the 
late Eev. Henry Ward Beecher (See No. 804, 8) is a copy. I also have a 
paper in the handwriting of my great-grandfather, Isaac Foote (No. 
247). This paper contains the following statement: "The following is 
the pedigree of ancient family of Footes, taken from autentic history. 
It appears that some time between A. D. 1630 and 1635, three brothers 
by the names of Nathaniel, Caleb and Pasco came to this countrj^ from 
Colchester, in England, and settled as follows: Pasco settled at Salem, 
Mass., where there is now some of his descendants. Caleb is supposed to 
have died in Boston, without issue. Nathaniel, the eldest, first settled at 
Watertown, Mass., in 1636. He, with a number of others, removed to 
Wethersfield, Ct., and were among the first that settled there. He had 
two sons, Nathaniel and Robert. Robert settled in the to\^-n of Branford, 
in the county of New Haven. Nathaniel, the eldest, who settled in 
Wethersfield, married IMargaret Bliss, of Springfield, Mass. He was 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 



principal agent in getting the town of Colchester located and incor- 
porated, and gave it the name of Colchester (the name of the town of his 
nativity)." 

The following is the King James tradition of the Foote Coat of 
Arms, which I have heard from my early youth, and has been generally 
believed by my relations and ancestors, so far as I am informed. It was 
copied by my mother from a writing of Hon. Isaac Foote (No. 247), and 
was found with the Coat of Arms among his effects : 

"A Coat of Arms was bestowed on the family of Footes' for the 
following reasons: In a war between the English and the Scots, King 
James was in imminent danger of being killed or taken prisoner, and 
James Foote, a trusty officer, escorted him to a certain wood, where was 
a large oak tree, the trunk whereof was hollow, he concealed the King, 
unknown to anyone, until he obtained a safer retreat. And for that act 
of fortitude and fidelity the King ordered the Coat of Arms to be struck 
and given to the said James Foote. The chevron in the center of the 
card is an emblem of firmness and fidelity. We trace our ancestry from 
this same James Foote." 

In Hume's History of England, Vol. V, page 417-420, is a similar 
incident related of King Charles I., so much resembling the tradition in 
regard to James, his immediate predecessor, as to give rise to the query 
whether the tradition had not changed the name of the King in passing 
from memory of one to another so many times. 

THE FOOTE COAT OF ARMS. 

The genuineness of the Foote Coat of Arms has been held by the 
family from the first, and has come down to the present generation with 
the endorsement of our ancestors for two hundred and fifty years. Judge 
Isaac Foote, of Colchester, Ct., came to the present town of Smyrna, N. 
Y., in 1794. He was the first Judge of Chenango County. He had been 
Justice of the Peace and member of the Assembly for Connecticut before 
coming here, and was for several terms a member of the Assembly for 
the State of New York. 

Judge Foote was born in Colchester, Ct., in 1746, and died in Smyrna 
in 1842. Judge Foote 's grandfather, Nathaniel Foote, was born in 
Wethersfield, Ct., in 1682, thirty-one years after the battle of Worcester. 
He came to Colchester, where Judge Foote was brought up, early in the 
seventeenth century, and died there in 1774, at the age of 92. Judge 
Foote lived in Colchester until 1773, until within a year of his grand- 
father's death, and so lived in the same town with his grandfather 
twenty-seven years. 

Henry Ward Beecher believed the story of the origin of this Coat of 
Arms, and named his country seat Boscobel, after the name of the town 



10 FOOTS KISTOKY AND GENEALOGY 

where the incident occurred which led to the bestowal of the honor, 
Mr. Beecher's family and Judge Foote's family were very closely re- 
lated. The father of Mr. Beecher's mother was Eli Foote, a brother of 
Judge Isaac Foote. 

It is manifest that Judge Foote had peculiar advantages for satisfy- 
ing himself as to the truth of the story. If such a man as he accepted it 
as genuine, as he did, we may readily conclude that he had good reasons 
for accepting it. Henry "Ward Beecher's biographers (his son and son- 
in-law, Rev. Samuel Scoville), have introduced the place of the Arms 
and the story into the biography. The battle of Worcester, with which 
the matter is associated, occurred Sept. 3, 1651. The histories, so far as 
ascertained, do not connect the name of Foote with the battle, nor do 
they mention any one being knighted for any deed performed in connec- 
tion vrith it ; nor do they mention the clover-field out of which came a 
part of the insignia, namely, the clover leaf. The histories narrate the 
story somewhat as follows: 

The battle of Worcester was fought Sept. 3, 1651. Cromwell, with 
30,000 men, fell upon Worcester and attacked it, meeting with little 
resistance. The entire Scottish army was either killed or captured. The 
King, Charles the Second, was obliged to fly. He fled some twenty-six 
miles with fifty of his friends, when it was deemed wise for him to 
separate from his companions. The Earl of Derbj^ advised him to go to 
Bos:'obel. At Boscobel lived one Penderell, a farmer, to whom the 
King entrusted himself. Penderell, with the assistance of his four 
brothers, took the King, clothed him in a garb like their own, led him 
into a neighboring wood and pretended to employ themselves in cutting 
fagots. For better concealment the King climbed an oak tree, where 
he sheltered himself among the leaves and branches for twenty-four 
hours. This tree was afterwards called The Royal Oak. 

The story, as it has been handed down by our ancestors, is that one 
James Foote, father of Nathaniel Foote, the settler, an officer of King 
Charles the Second's army, concealed the King in his flight from Crom- 
well, after the battle of Worcester, at a place called Boscobel, in an oak 
tree, which was located in a clover field : for which act of chivalry Foote 
was knighted, the distinct features of the Arms being an oak tree and a 
clover leaf. The motto of the Arms was "Loyalty and Truth." 

While there are marked differences in the two stories, there is no 
necessary conflict between them. There is nothing in the recorded 
history to show that one James Foote, an officer of the Army, did not 
do all the latter story claims for him, or that he was not honored by the 
King for doing it, as the Foote family have always believed.

FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 11 



THE FOOTE FAMILY ASSOCIATION 

The first gathering of the Foote Family Association of America took 
place iu Wethersfield, Connecticut, on June 5, 1907. The descendants of 
Nathaniel Foote, the settler, gathered in the old town, and formed a 
permanent family organization. There were over one hundred repre- 
sentatives of the Foote family present from all over the United States. 

For some six months previous to the meeting, a vigorous correspond- 
ence had been carried on between Judge Abram W. Foote, of Middlebury, 
Vermont, Mr. John M. Foote, of Plartford, Connecticut, Mr. Nathaniel 
Foote, of New York City, and Dr. Lewis Nathaniel Foote, of Brooklyn, 
New York. As a result of these conferences, a letter was sent out to a 
few members of the family, and the responses were so hearty and en- 
thusiastic that no doubt was left as to the desire for a reunion, and the 
prospects appeared bright for its success. 

Later, a general invitation was scattered as widely as possible. 

On Tuesday afternoon, June 4th, representatives of the family from 
near and far began to gather in Hartford. The Garde Hotel had been 
chosen as the headquarters of the clan, and on that evening an informal 
reception was held, which was attended by some sixty-five persons. 
Remarks were made by Judge Abram W. Foote touching the Foote coat- 
of-arms and its history. Some discussion followed, which was partici- 
pated in by Mr. Nathaniel Foote, of New York, Judge Nathaniel Foote, 
of Rochester, New York, Mrs. Caroline Foote Marsh, of New York, Mrs. 
IMabel Ward Cameron, of Boston, and others. The reception was a most 
delightful affair. 

On the morning of June 5, 1907, a special electric car conveyed the 
guests to Wethersfield. Arrangements had most generously been made 
by the members of the Grange, the Business Men's Association and the 
selectmen of the town to entertain the gathering in the Grange Hall. 

The reunion proper opened with an informal reception from 10 to 
11 in the hall, when the assemblage was called to order by Dr. Lewis 
Nathaniel Foote, of Brooklyn, New York. 

He spoke briefly as follows: 

Cousins and Friends: 

It is indeed a great pleasure to be permitted to call to order this the first 
gathering of the Foote Family Association. 

There have been other reunions of Footes here and there throughout the 
country but to-day marks the beginning of the national, and who knows but that 
it may grow into an international organization. 



1:2 rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

Prom Boston to Seattle have responses come wishing good success to this 
gathering. So it behooves us to make firm the foundations we lay to-day that the 
Foote Family Association may last to the end of time. 

The Rev. Henry Lewis Foote, of Marblehead, Massachusetts, de- 
livered the invocation. 

Upon the declination of Mr. John Foote, of Hartford, Connecticut, 
to serve as presiding officer, the name of Judge Nathaniel Foote, of 
Rochester, N. Y., was presented, and he was unanimously chosen to fill 
that position. 

Upon assuming the chair he addressed the gathering as follows: 

Ladies and Gentlemen: 

You will not expect me to be wholly free from embarrassment in the presence 
of so many cousins whom I have now, for the first time, the pleasure of meeting. 

It was a very happy inspiration of the person or persons responsible for our 
meeting to-day to have conceived the plan of such a gathering, and they were 
equally happy in locating the place of this meeting at Wethersfield, where our 
eoiiiniGTi ancestor, who came to this country now more than two hundred and eighty 
years ago, made his fight for existence and to bring up his family, against the 
wilderness and the savage. To that fight and to its successful issue all who are 
gathered here to-day, and thousands more, are indebted for the privilege of exist- 
ence and for the privilege of enjoying the many comforts and blessings which 
they enjoy at the present day. To that common ancestor, who lies buried in 
yonder churchyard, we owe a debt of gratitude too great to be stated in words or 
to be rightly appreciated. Let us do what little we can to honor his memory, and 
to that end, I hope a permanent organization of his descendants now living may 
be formed here, which will resi;lt in regular gatherings of the family in the 
future. 

The address of welcome w^as then delivered by Rev. George L. 
Clark. 

An historical paper was then read by Mr. Nathaniel Foote, of New 
York City. He said in part: 

Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

The genesis of the name Foote is found in the tradition that when the primi- 
tive inhabitants of the British Isles took names to distinguish one family or clan 
from another, a man who lived at the foot of the mountain called himself Foote. 
Of course, I can offer no evidence to sustain this statement, owing to the length 
of time which has elapsed since this occurrence took place, if it ever did. If we 
accept it as authentic, we must class it with the story of the escape of Charles I. 
after the battle of Worcester and the services said to have been rendered him by 
his loyal subject, James Foote of Boscobel. 

You are doubtless familiar with this family tradition, for it has been gener- 
ally accepted among us in one form or another for many years. The story has 
taken to itself a visible and permanent existence in the coat of arms and crest 
of the family. We have the oak tree as a crest and the clover-field on the face 
of the coat of arms, both to remind us of the peril of the King and the degree of 
Knighthood which afterward was conferred on some ancestor of ours. Unfortun- 
atelv we have not been able to ascertain which king it was that honored him. 



FOOTS HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 13 

Some of us have understood that it was Charles I. of England, but English 
history says otherwise. The battle of Worcester and the escape of the King to 
Boscobel took place in 1651, or sixteen years after the settlement at Wethers- 
field. It is quite true that a large number of the family remained at home, and 
Burke's Book of Heraldry gives a description of ten different coats of arms 
which belonged to the various branches of the family. It is possible that the 
degree of Knighthood was conferred on some of those who remained in England. 

The earliest record in existence of Nathaniel Foote, the Settler, in this 
country, is found in the records of the grants and possessions of lands in the 
Colony of Massachusetts Bay in 1633, when he took the oath of Freeman, and in 
Watertown, where he first located and where is an entry of land to him. Then 
came the search after a new home, and after fourteen days of travel in the wilder- 
ness he, with the rest of the company, settled in Wethersfield. We do not know 
the reason for this move, although it was stated at the time that the settlers in 
Watertown wanted "more room for their cattle." It is more probable, however, 
that it was the outcome of some sort of a theological dispute which led to the 
new settlement. Later disputes of the same kind led to the settlement of Stam- 
ford, Connecticut, in 1640; Branford in 1644, and Hadley, Massachusetts, in 1659. 
The records of Wethersfield show that Nathaniel Foote took title to a farm on 
February 21st, 1637, just 270 years ago, and the purchase of this tract made him 
the largest holder of adventure lands in the settlement. The word "adventure" 
in this case being used to describe lands the title of which did not come from the 
town. This settlement of Wethersfield was the beginning of what is now the 
State of Connecticut, so that our common ancestor was one of the founders of not 
only a town but a great Commonwealth as well. I say great because the term is 
well deserved. No student or observer of American affairs can study the history 
of the State of Connecticut and say otherwise. And in all the various conditions 
and movements which have contributed to this result our family have borne their 
share of the burden. I will venture to mention some of them by name: George 
Foote, of Bennington, Vermont, who stood by the side of Ethan Allen when he 
demanded the surrender of Fort Ticonderoga. He was one of the pioneer settlers 
of that State. 

Honorable Isaac Foote, of Colchester, Connecticut, a soldier of the Eevolutiou, 
and the first Judge of Chenango County, New York, to which place he had re- 
moved. He died in February, 1843, at the age of 97. 

Nathaniel Foote, the projector of the settlement of Colchester, Connecticut. 
He was representative to the General Assembly for twenty-two successive sessions. 
He died in August, 1774, at the age of 92, and his son Nathaniel died in 1811 at 
the age of 99. 

Honorable Ebenezer Foote, of Delhi, New York, another Eevolutionary soldier 
and first Judge of Delaware County. 

Honorable Samuel Augustus Foote, of Cheshire, Connecticut, Member and 
Speaker of the House of Eepresentatives of Connecticut; a representative at the 
Congress in Washington, afterwards United States Senator; Governor of the 
State of Connecticut, and Presidential Elector in 1844. His son, Andrew Hull 
Foote, was the well-known Kear-Admiral in the United States Navy. 

I will also mention Elial Todd Foote, for twenty-five years Presiding .Judge of 
the Court of Common Pleas of the State of New York; Hon. Leverett Brainerd, 
former Mayor of Hartford; Frederick W. Foote, of Elizabeth, New Jersey; Bight 
Eeverend Fred Foote Johnson, the youngest Bishop in the Episcopal Church; 



14 FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

Honorable Nathaniel Foote, Judge of the Court of Appeals of the State of New 
York; and Honorable Abram W. Foote, of Middlebury, Vermont. 

Judge Abram W. Foote, of Middlebury, Vermont, then addressed 
the gathering. He said in part: 

Dear Cousins: 

Two hundred and seventy years ago Nathaniel Foote came to Wethersfield, 
Conn., and helped settle this, the first town in this valley; he had probably come 
from Colchester, England, about five years before. 

The same energy that prompted Nathaniel Foote to leave Colchester, England, 
and come to Watertown, and then push again forward to Wethersfield, was ap- 
parent in his sons, Nathaniel 2nd, who founded the town of Colchester, Conn., and 
Eobert, who moved to Branford, Conn.; and in the next few generations we find 
the descendants moving to Vermont and New York State, the frontier at that 
time, and in the next century pushing on to Michigan and Ohio, and as the country 
was opened up for settlement, still farther, until to-day we find them in nearly 
every part of the United States and some parts of Canada. 

With the publication of the Genealogy the work of the Association really 
begins. There is no doubt but what there are many by the name of Foote who 
have not been traced out; some are indifferent, others have not the means of 
knowing, but in a few weeks you will all be able to trace the lines just so far as 
I can now, and by keeping up the interest the greatest success will be attained. 

Let each member of the family report any additions or corrections at any 
time to the Secretary and the record will be preserved for future publication. 

These meetings should be held bi-annually, at least, and in different parts of 
the country, and thus reach a larger proportion of the family. 

The object of the Association is two-fold: closer social relations and to collect 
and preserve the history of the family. 

To accomplish these purposes, I would suggest that we have an Assistant 
Secretary in each State, so far as possible, and that we encourage State Associa- 
tions that shall meet bi-annually, alternating with the Nathaniel Association, and, 
if practicable, establish an English Association. 

The ties that bind us are naturally closer than that of any fraternity: "Blood 
is thicker than water." 

As we tread the ground that was subdued and tilled by our ancestors, let us 
not forget that they suffered those privations and braved those dangers that our 
parents, ourselves, and our children should reap the benefits of living in this 
Glorious Eepublic. 

This closed the literary character of the morning session. 

After some informal remarks by Dr. Foote, of Brooklyn, con- 
gratulating Judge Abram W. Foote upon the success of his efforts upon 
the Foote Genealogy, 

It was moved and carried that as an association we tender to him our 
most hearty thanks for the work that he has done and that some refer- 
ence in the form of a resolution be placed upon the minutes of this 
meeting. 

The following resolution was introduced and most enthusiastically 
endorsed bv the association : 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 15 

THE FOOTE FAMILY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA. 

Wethersfield, Connecticut, June 5, 1907. 
Hon. Abrani William Foote, Middlebury, Vermont. 

At the first meeting of the Foote Family Association, held at Wethersfield, 
<Conn., on the 5th day of June, 1907, the following resolution was proposed and 
unanimously adopted: 

Resolved: That we extend to the Honorable Abram W, Foote, of Middlebury, 
•Vermont, our sincere thanks and deep appreciation for the labor which he has so 
cheerfully given, and for the untiring efforts put forth by him in revising the 
Foote Genealogy to the present time, as well as to render this gathering so en- 
joyable to us all. 

It has been ordered that this resolution be placed upon the minutes of this the 
first meeting of the Foote Family Association of America. 

NATHANIEL FOOTE, Presiding Officer. 
LEWIS NATHANIEL FOOTE, M. D., Acting Secretary. 

It was moved and carried that a eonmiittee be appointed to nominate 
officers, draw up rules and by-laws and present some brief form of 
organization. 

The chair appointed as such committee Mr. Julius Merrill Foote, of 
Newark, New Jersey, Mr. Lawrence Foote, of Canton, Mississippi, and 
Judge Abram W. Foote, of Middlebury, Vermont. 

The benediction was then pronounced by the Rev. John Bartlit 
Foote, D. i)., of Syracuse, New York, thus closing the morning meeting. 

Owing to the rainy weather, the guests were largely confined to the 
Grange building, although later in the day many strolled to the Old 
Foote Tract and gazed upon the wonderful elm tree. 

Lunch was served in the Grange dining hall at 1 o'clock. Over one 
hundred and fifty were seated and enjoyed a most bountiful repast 
which was furnished by the Grangers gratuitously. 

After luncheon, a flashlight photograph of all those present at the 
meeting was taken. Instead of the picture being taken under the elm 
tree, as planned, the weather forbidding, the gathering was photographed 
in the Grange Hall. A short time was then spent in singing patriotic 
songs. 

The business session was called to order with Judge Nathaniel Foote, 
of Rochester, New York, in the chair. 

The report of the committee on the constitution and by-laws was 
called for and read. 

It was moved and carried that the Foote Family Association of 
America be hereby organized, and do hereby adopt the constitution and 
by-laws as offered. 

The report of the committee on nominations for officers was called 
for and the following names were presented: 

For President — Hon. Nathaniel Foote, of Rochester, New York.

Judge Nathaniel Foote assumed the chair as president and addressed 
the association briefly. 

It was moved and carried that resolutions of thanks be sent to the 
hosts of the day and that the resolutions be incorporated in the minutes 
of the Association. 

The subject of a suitable memorial being placed in the town of 
Wethersfield to perpetuate the name of Nathaniel Foote, the Settler, was 
brought before the meeting by Judge Abram W. Foote. 

It was moved and carried that a committee be appointed, with power 
to solicit subscriptions for, and to place in the town of "Wethersfield, a 
suitable memorial to Nathaniel Foote, the Settler. 

The president appointed as such committee Judge Abram W. Foote, 
of Middlebury, Vermont. Dr. Lewis Nathaniel Foote, of Brooklyn, New 
York, and Mr. John A. Foote, of Catskill, New York.

DESCENDANTS OF NATHANIEL FOOTE OF 
WETHERSFIELD, CT. 

1. NATHANIEL FOOTE. The first settler. He was b. abt. 1593; m. in Eng- 
land abt. 1615, Elizabeth Deming, sister of John Deming, who was one of the first 
settlers of Wethersfield. She was b. abt, 1595. He d. abt. 1644. She m. abt. 
1646, Thomas Welles. He was magistrate, afterwards Governor of the Colony. 
He d. . She d. July 28, 1683. 

I. NATHANIEL FOOTE, one of the first settlers of Wethersfield, Ct., belongs, 
not to that class of men who fill a large place in the world 's history, because called by 
some great emergency into positions of power and influence, — but to that more meri- 
torious class of pious and excellent persons, who, born to the great inheritance of 
labor, walk meekly along the paths of common life, perform every duty, public or 
private, love and help their fellow men, and act always as if in their Great Task 
Master's eye. It is to such men that society owes at once its peace, stability and 
progress, and yet history takes no note of such, and hence 

' ' The world knows nothing of its greatest men. ' ' 

His business in life was that of agriculture, — necessarily the leading pursuit 
of New England in its early history, when the forests were to be elled, the soil 
broken up, the seeds of all the grains, and plants and fruits which constitute the food 
of men and beasts to be sown, and its great staples of commercial exchange supplied. 
And in every period of society the agriculture population has proved of the highest 
importance to the wealth, dignity and strength of a State. It is from this class of 
the population that the city and the village, that commerce and the arts, are ever 
drawing the bone and muscle of their laborers, and much of the energy of their 
directing force. In no other of the leading pursuits in society are there the same 
facilities for cultivating bodily energy, and the force and vigor of mind conse- 
quent upon a vigorous constitution. The pure air, the rough exposure, the health- 
ful toil, the constant call for thought and reflection, the walking with God in the 
open field, the study of his laws as unfolded in the circuit of the seasons, and in 
the growth of the seed and ripening of the harvest, the better domestic training 
under which children can be reared in the country, — all these things are favorable 
for converting the agricultural population into an element of conservation, much 
needed to give stability to the ever restless desire of change which animates a 
young community, and to uphold society in moments of danger and trial. It is 
the boast of Connecticut, and of Wethersfield in particular, to have had from the 
beginning a large population of intelligent, industrious and pious farmers in her 
population, and that the ranks of her merchants, her mechanics, her seamen and 
her professional men have been replenished by contributions drawn from this 
source. To this she undoubtedly owed her reputation for steady habits, and the 
domestic peace which has reigned so continuously in her borders. To this class of 
her population Mr. Foote belonged; — he was an intelligent, pious and industrious 
farmer, and, like all of that class of farmers, he was from time to time summoned 
to the discharge of public trusts by his neighbors and townsmen. 

From all that we can learn Mr. Foote came from Shalford, in Colchester, Eng., 
and settled in Watertown, Mass. The first mention I find made of his name is in 
the Kecords of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, in 1633, when he took the oath 
of freeman. In the "Eecords of the Grants and Possession of the Lands in 
Watertown," (in which town Mr. Foote first located himself) the following entry 
is made:

18 rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

" Nathaniel Foote. 

"1. An homstall of sixteen acres by estimation, bounded ye north and north- 
west wth ye highway, the south and southwest wth Jeremiah Norcross, granted 
to him. 

"2. Two acres of marsh by estimation, bounded ye south wth ye River, the 
north wth Henry Curtis, the east wth John Firmin, and the west wth John Smith, 
granted to him." 

Whether Mr. Foote was among the pioneers from Watertown, who made the 
first lodgment in, or before, 1635, on the banks of the Connecticut at Pyquag, is 
not known, but his name is found in its first Eecords, and among those to whom 
the first distribution of land was made; and he, therefore, must have shared all the 
dangers and privations of that long and toilsome journey through the wilderness 
in 1636, and have encountered all the horrors and trials of the first winter in 
their new home. And how difficult it is for us, in our comfortable dwellings, or 
traversing with every means and appliance of comfort, the distance between 
Wethersfield and Boston, in half as many hours as they consumed days, to realize 
the sufferings of that journey and of that first winter here! We never can be 
too thankful that courage and strength was meted out to them in proportion 
to their trials. For them, the trail of the Indian, too narrow for teams or 
herds, — for them, the unbridged stream and morass, — for them, the steep hill, — for 
them, the dangers from wild beasts, or from savage men, were not enough to 
cause them to turn back. It was not 'till winter had come down from the north 
to lock up the streams, 'till the fire in their temporary lodgments could not keep 
out the biting cold, 'till famine stared them in the face, that they turned again 
for food and shelter to the coast; and when spring returned, they were again on 
their way, with their thinned ranks recruited, to commence anew the work of 
settlement. 

In a few years we find them, with their brethren in Hartford and Windsor, 
laying the foundations of a Commonwealth in which they aim "to maintain and 
preserve the liberty and purity of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus," and "to be 
governed and guided by such laws, rules, orders and decrees as shall be made, 
ordained and declared" by the General Court, to be appointed by the freemen 
of the Commonwealth. To found a State under any circumstances has ever been 
counted among the great works of great men, but to found a State, in which 
the equal rights of all men are so well recognized and guarded, in the wilderness, 
amid the trials of frost and famine, and with daily, hourly, constant apprehension 
of assault and butchery from the savage, is no common event in the world's 
history, and should be ever remembered by those who have enjoyed its protection. 

In the original distribution of the lands of the town, as recorded in 1640, Mr, 
Foote had assigned him a house lot of ten acres on the east side of Broad street, 
near the south end of the street. A part of this lot is now owned and occupied 
by Mr. Josiah Adams. Mr. Foote became the owner of several other tracts of 
land, laying partly in the Great Meadow east of his house lot, and containing in 
the whole, upwards of four hundred acres. The cultivation of his land constituted 
his main business, although he was called by his neighbors to participate in the 
public trusts of the town, and in 1644 was appointed a delegate to the General 
Court. 

Mr. Foote married in England, about the year 1615, to Elizabeth Deming, 
sister of Mr. John Deming, who was one of the first settlers of Wethersfield, and 
for many years one of the magistrates of the Colony of Connecticut, and one of

the patentees named in its charter. His children were all boru in England, except 
perhaps the youngest. Mr. Foote died in 1644, aged about 51 years, and was 
buried in the ancient burying ground in the rear of the Meeting House, where are 
gathered together the ashes of nine generations. He left behind him, surviving, 
a widow, two sons and five daughters. He left no will. At a Particular Court 
held at Hartford, November 20, 1644, the following inventory of his property and 
distribution of his real estate were exhibited, and an order of court granting 
administration on his estate and directing a distribution to be made, was passed.

"Mr, Heynes and Mr. Willis are desired to consider of the estate of Nath: 
flfoote, deceased, and to take in what help they please from any of the neighbors 
to advise how yt may be Disposed of, and to report there apprehensions to the 
. next Court." 

This last vote is of many evidences which might be quoted from the Eecords 
to show the confidence reposed in the leading men of the Colony, and how natur- 
ally the people turn to such men for help when public business is to be done, or 
private affairs even are to be regulated. 

Mrs. Foote, the widow of Nathaniel Foote, was married about the year 1646, 
to "Mr. Thomas Welles, Magistrate," afterwards Governor of the Colony, whom 
she likewise survived. 

Governor Welles died Jan. 14, 1659-60, leaving a will. When in life, he gave 
a good estate to each of his children, except his son John, who settled in Stratford, 
Ct. Mr. John Welles died before his father, and in his will gave him his son 
Eobert, then a child, to whom Governor Welles, in his will, which is dated Novem- 
ber 7, 1659, gave the bulk of the large estate of which he died seized. 

Mrs. Welles died July 28, 1683, aged about 88 years. She left a will which 
was exhibited to and approved by the "Particular Court," August, 1683. The 
following is a copy of that Instrument: 

"I, Elizabeth Welles, of Wethersfield, in the county of Hartford, in the 
colony of Connecticut, Widdow, Being stricken in yeares & in expectation of my

The following was taken from the Hatfield Town Records: 
''Elizabeth, wife to Daniel Beldenye head of the family, together 
with Daniel Belden, John Belden and Thankful Belden, their chidren, were all of 
them slaine by the enemie September 16, 1696." 

"Sept. 16, 1696. The Indians came along from up Green River to the town, 
and assaulted Mr. Daniel Belden 's house; took Mr. Belden, his son Nathaniel and 
daughter Esther captive, killed his wife and three children, and wounded Samuel 
and Abigail, but they recovered, altho' Samuel had a hatchet stuck in his head, 
and some of his brains came out at his wound. Samuel was born Apr. 10, 1687. 
From Mather's Magnalia: 

"The Indians making an Assault upon Deerfield, in this Present War, they 
struck a Hatchet some Inches into the Skull of a Boy there, even so deep that 
the Boy felt the force of a Wrench used by 'em to get it out. There he lay a 
long while Weltering in his Blood; they found him, they Dress 'd him; consider- 
able Quantities of his Brain came out from time to time when they opened the 
Wound; yet the Lad recovered, and is now a Living Monument of the Power 
and Goodness of God."

Nathaniel Foote was born at Wethersfield, Jan. 14, 1648. He 
settled in Hatfield, Mass., and married. May 2, 1672, Margaret Bliss, dau. of 
Nathaniel Bliss, of Springfield. After residing in Hatfield two years, he removed 
to Springfield, like almost every householder, he was called into the service of his 
country against the Indians, and was actively engaged in the bloody and success- 
ful attack on their encampment at the falls in Connecticut river, a few miles 
above Deerfield, since called Turner's Falls, in commemoration of the brave Capt. 
Turner, who commanded the expedition. From Springfield, Mr. I'oote removed 
to Stratford, where his house lot of one acre was on Main street, directly east of 
the old burial ground near the present Congregational Church. This lot he con- 
veyed in March, 1680, to Benjamin Lewis, having decided to move with his family 
to Branford, where, in February, 1679, he was admitted "a, planter" of the 
town, and a "home lot" was granted to him, "on condition that it should have 
a tenantable house built upon it within two years, and that he come to settle 
amongst us, or else the lot to return to the town again." In pursuing his "mani- 
fest destiny" to migrate, Mr. Foote conveyed this lot with sundry other lots of 
which he had become possessed, to Jonathan Pitman, of Stratford, and moved to 
Wethersfield, where he continued to reside till his death, although he had, pre- 
vious to that event, planned another removal to a new settlement begun under 
his enterprise, at "Jeremy's Farm," since and now called Colchester, on the road 
from Hartford to New London. An order authorizing a settlement at this place 
was made by the General Court in October, 1698, and the new settlement was 
made to embrace the territory bounded north by Twenty-mile river, south by 
Lyme, west by Haddam and Middletown, and east and northeast by Lebanon and 
Norwich. This land was conveyed by Owaneco, Sachem of Mohegan, "for the 
consideration of love and affection," to Nathaniel Foote, to be distributed by 
him "according to his discretion," except fifty acres to be selected by himself, 
which he had the privilege of reserving to himself and his heirs forever. The 
settlement was commenced in 1701, but on account of failing health, Mr. Foote 
did not remove. He died Jan. 12, 1703, leaving a widow and nine children, four 



30 FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

sons and five daughters. His widow and four youngest children, three sons and 
one daughter, subsequently moved to Colchester. Mrs. Poote died Apr. 3, 1745, at 
the age of 95. The children all married, and settled in the neighborhood of each 
other in the new town. 

Although a house carpenter by trade, and as such was employed to repair 
the Meeting House at Bradford, Mr. Foote, after his return to Wethersfield, 
appears to have pursued the practice of the law, — his name frequently appearing 
on the records of the County Court as Attorney in cases before that court.

FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 39 



Euth, and several of their children were members of the church at Plymouth. 
Among these was Obed Foote, the youngest son, born November 25, 1741. He 
became in love with the minister's daughter, Mary Todd, then 19 years of age. 
He was only 20, and they were married in 1761. Eleven children were the fruit 
of this happy marriage. Her father, Eev. Samuel Todd, was a graduate of Yale, 
pastor of the church at Plymouth for 25 years, and a chaplain in the Continental 
army in the Eevolution, and afterwards the first pastor of the Church at North 
Adams, Berkshire county, Mass. Of Obed 's four brothers three were in the 
Eevolutionary service. One, David, was killed by the British in their attack on Fair- 
field, Conn. Another, Ebenezer, died in the army, and each of these had a son 
in the service. While these brothers were in the Eevolutionary army, Obed, the 
youngest son, remained at home to care for the widowed mother, then 70 years 
of age, and his young family, among whom was Samuel Foote, born April 7, 1770, 
at Plymouth, Conn., who was in later years one of the pioneers of Sherburne and 
Plymouth, N. Y.

42 rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

Haven, were highly esteemed by their acquaintance, particularly in the duties of 
the Christian character. This, their only son, was early consecrated to God, and, 
with two sisters, was trained up with parental care, and with the best advan- 
tages for education that could be ordinarily obtained at that day. In his youth 
he exhibited an inclination to the military profession, which was necessarily culti- 
vated, more or less, at that period of our history. What part he took in the war 
of 1745 is not well known, but it is supposed that he was an officer in the 
militia, and probably engaged in the important expedition to Cape Breton, which 
issued in the capture of the strongly fortified town of Louisburg. 

The next period of peace between England and France continued but seven 
years. The succeeding war, commonly denominated the "French War," com- 
menced in 1755; the same season as the defeat of the unfortunate Braddock. The 
regiment to which Major Foote was attached joined the Northern army under 
the command of Gen. Shirley. Great preparations were made that year for the 
approaching contest; the best troops in New England were called out, it being 
generally expected that the decisive conflict of war would take place in Canada. 
This proved to be the case in the successful battle of Quebec, with the death of 
Gen. Wolfe. 

At this eventful occasion we have in Major Foote a striking exhibition of the 
Christian soldier. While this detachment was at Albany, Gen. Shirley had a 
dining party, of which Mr. Foote was one, on the Sabbath. He attended public 
worship in the morning, and then went to dinner. At the call for the afternoon 
exeicise Major Foote rose at table and asked permission to leave the company. 
Gen. Shirley said, " No, Major, do not leave this company, and these choice 
wines." He modestly renewed his request, and was refused as before. Mr. Foote 
stood, but was silent. The Gen. spoke again, "No compulsion, Major, take 
your choice, leave if you wish." He took a respectful leave for the house of 
prayer. 

A few extracts from his letters, written to his wife a short time previous to 
his decease, will give a distinct view of the Christian character of Major Foote, 
and may be more interesting than the remarks of angther. He was in the tract of 
country between Albany, Lake Champlain and Lake Ontario, distinguished in 
OUT history for military achievements. 

" Fort Nicholson, Aug. 15, 1755. — I am now arrived at the great carrying- 
place where General Lyman built a fort. I do not expect to write you any 
letters before we attack the fort and have an engagement; and stand or fall, live 
or die, as God pleases, I feel, in general, resigned to the disposal of Divine Provid- 
ence; and if it should be my lot to fall in battle, or otherwise die here, let me 
recommend to you, as from a dying husband, to live entirely devoted to God and 
his service. Spend your time in doing the will of God. The great part of your 
care must be in bringing up the dear children, and use your utmost endeavor to 
instruct them in the principles of religion; pray much with them and for them. 
. . . I hope your heart is fixed, trusting in God, so that evil tidings shall not 
make you afraid. I know that, like Eli, your heart will tremble, you will want to 
hear and yet be afraid to hear. And when you learn that there are a number 
slam (for it would be very extraordinary if none should be killed), how your 
heart will tremble lest I should be in the number of them that fall in battle. 
And if it should be the case, do not mourn immoderately, for while you are mourn- 
ing and weeping, through the Kedeemer's merits, I shall be adoring before the 
throne of God." 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 43 



In the next letter, dater Aug. 20th, he writes, — " We have orders to move 
forward our regiment. I am not- well, but resigned to the will of God. Hope you 
are, and will continue so. The comforts of religion are real, solid, and sometimes 
ravishing. O Saviour, how much do I long to be conformed to Thee. Love God, 
pray much, instruct the children, and if I ever come home I intend to do more for 
them than I have ever done. Pray for Zion's prosperity. I trust you will be 
faithful in the affair of religion of the family. I now have the distemper that 
prevails among us, though not mortal, except in two instances. But I am in safe 
hands. Do not be concerned about me; you may mention the case to a prayer- 
hearing God, and desire the prayers of my Christian friends. I trust I shall be 
saved from the pestilence that walketh in darkness, and the arrows and bullets 
that fly at noon-day. But, however it be, do you love and praise God, and join 
with me in ascribing praise and honor to the Lamb, to Whom be glory ever- 
lasting." 

In a letter of Sept. 1st, he says, — "1 left the camp about a week ago on 
account of my ill-health. Am now pretty well recovered, and design to go to the 
army to-morrow. Gen. Johnson, with 1,500 men, is now at the Lake St. Savian, 
building a fort; and some things look discouraging. Yet I trust, if the reinforce- 
ments come seasonably, we shall proceed to some point. We have some prospect 
of an engagement. 

I am at present in low spirits. Oh, alas, how various are my frames! Last 
letter I wrote you I was on the mount; and could unite with angels in adoring 
sovereign grace; — and now, alas, why sunk down in stupidity and sloth. Oh, cry 
to Heaven for me. I hope you and the few dear praying ones will continue to 
besiege, as you beautifully express it, the throne of Grace. You may do more 
than Gen. Johnson can with his army. Oh! the prayer of saints — I had almost 
said Omnipotent. Mr. Bellamy, in a letter, tells me all the children of God lie 
prostrate before the Lord for success in this enterprize. . . . Oh, amazing 
grace! how safe is the believer. Perils and dangers he may pass through, afflic- 
tions may encompass him like bees, death may stare him in the face and threaten 
an onset. Serene and calm he awaits the blow, and asks the monster: Where is 
its sting, and where its victory-boasting grave?" 

" Flatts, 4 miles above Albany, Sept. 17, '55, — I am here at Colonel Schuyler's 
waiting for a guard, for it is not deemed safe to. go alone. I am in a very feeble 
state of health; think it is owing to Jesuit's bark, taken to break fever and ague 
fits, or to the almost constant fogs that arise from the river. If I was at home I 
should give quite out. I am tenderly looked after, go where I will, and treated 

very kindly I know not when I shall go home, if ever. I would have 

you cast all your care and roll all your burden upon God. He will support you. 
Is he not better to you than an earthly friend? I am sure He is to me. When 
dejected. He raises me up; when fainting, He gives me refreshing cordials; when 
thirsty. He gives me the water of life." 

" Thursday Morning,— Slept comfortably; hope you had a good night, and 
freedom this morning to pour out your soul to God. I am very poor and pained 
to-day; but it is all well; because as to health, it is as God would have it. . . . 
It is now 9 o'clock; I will lay down and rest my poor body, if God pleaSes, and to- 
morrow I may perhaps write more; and so good-night to you and the children and 
friends. ' ' 

About this period Major Foote obtained permission to leave the army on 
account of his constant and increasing illness, hoping to be able to reach his home.

Hadley, Mass. She d. July 24, 1794; ae. 64. He removed from Simsbury, Ct., about 
1764 to Washington, Mass., and cleared away the forest and made a farm. He 
moved next to Dalton, Mass.; purchased land and brought into cultivation a valuable 
farm. This he sold to Daniel, his oldest son, and moved to Middlebury, Vt., and 
bought one thousand acres of wild land, on which he built mills, felled the forest, 
and resided for many years. About 1783 he bought all of the land that is now in 
the village of Middlebury on the west side of the river and erected a grist mill and 
saw mill. This property was given by him to his sons Stillman and John, the latter 
selling his interest to Appleton in 1792. They built dwellings and improved the 
property. (See History of Middlebury.) Daniel Foote built the first bridge at 
Middlebury Falls. About 1801 he divided his property at Middlebury among his 
children, and went to Canton, N. Y., his son Stillman having moved there a short time 
before. In passing through Montreal, he took the small-pox and died a few days 
after he arrived in Canton. He was a man of great industry and indominable per- 
severance, and peculiarly fitted for a pioneer in a new country. He d. May 10, 1801, 
and was buried in an elm bark coflSn. All of his twelve children were members of the 
church. His sons also were pioneers, and their children are now widely scattered over 
the United States.

ford, Ct. She d. at Clinton, N. Y., Aug. 13, 1813, ae. 76. He commanded a Com- 
pany in the 27th Reg. of Ct. Vol. (D. A. R. Records). 

Moses Foote, the son of Moses Foote, was born in that part of Waterbury 
now Plymouth, Ct., where he resided until soon after the close of the Revolutionary 
War, when he moved with his family to commence a settlement in the western 
wilderness of New York. He was accompanied in this movement by the families 
of his sons and his sons-in-law — making altogether a neighborhood of his own. 
With Mr. Foote to lead and direct the enterprise, the party were admirably fitted 
to commence a new settlement. They were all charged with Yankee ingenuity, 
energy and perseverance, and Mr. Foote was endowed with an iron frame, six 
feet high, and of a temperament and muscular texture which admirably fitted him 
for a pioneer life. They took up a temporary residence at German Flatts, on the 
Mohawk River, then the very boundary of civilization on the west. In the 
autumn of 1786 they determined on a location sixty miles beyond, at a place now 
called Clinton, and there erected log huts, preparatory to an early removal in the 
succeeding spring. Accordingly, with the other families, Mr. Foote commenced 
the settlement of the new town in March, 1787, when scarcely the smoke of a log 
cabin inhabited by a white family could be discerned for twenty miles round. 
The town was called Paris, by the Legislature, on the petition of the inhabitants, 
in commemoration of the liberality of a merchant at Fort Plains, on the Mohawk, 
who supplied the infant settlement with corn and other provisions at a low price 
and a long credit, at a season when the crops, affected by the unfavorable weather, 
had nearly failed. The purchase made in 1788, by George Clinton and other Com- 
missioners appointed by the Legislature, from the Oneida Indians, of all their 
land, except some small reservation, gave a new and powerful impetus to the 
settlement of all this section of country, and in the course of a few years the 
germs of from twenty to thirty towns were planted in the region round about 
Mr. Foote 's settlement. Mr. Foote lived to see his own settlement expand and 
strengthen into a beautiful and flourishing village, bearing the honored name of 
Clinton, and the seat of a University, called after the no less honored name of 
Hamilton. During his life the wilderness through which he and his companions 
cut their way with the axe was converted into fields of grass and corn and wheat 
— and the stupendous work of connecting the waters of Lake Erie and Hudson 
river, by a navigable canal, was devised and completed, and his own crops were 
borne on its bosom to the Atlantic markets along the very route on which he 
made his slow and toilsome progress, through tangled forests, on foot, forty years 
before. He died Feb 9, 1819, at the age of 84. In the upper end of the park at 
Clinton is a granite monument, with this inscription on the south side, "Moses 
Foote, Esq., with seven other families, commenced the settlement of this town 
March 3, 1787." On the opposite side is the names, viz.: " Moses Foote, Luther 
Foote, Ira Foote, Ludim Blodget, James Bronson, Bronson Foote, Barnabas Pond, 
Levi Sherman."

510. iii. THANKFUL, b. Jan. 30, 1762; m. Barnabas, son of Timothy 
and Sarah (Munson) Pond; d. Oct. 8, 1814. He was b. Oct. 29, 
1755; d. May 9, 1814. Res., Clinton, N. Y. He was a farmer, 
and lived and died on the farm he cleaned up. His name is on 
the monument, where they cut the first tree and built the first 
meeting house. He was a major in the Revolutionary War. 
While Lafayette was passing through the thousands of the hardy 
yeomanry of the country anxious to express their gratitude to 
the French General and joy at meeting him as the nation 's honored 
guest at Utica, N. Y., the General's keen military eye caught the 
figure and form of the venerable Barnabas Pond, and rising up 
in his carriage, pointed him out and addressed him as "Major

June 12, 1780; d. Apr. 1, 1841. She d. at Hartford, Ct., Aug. 
9, 1881, ae. 89 yrs., 8 mos., 5 ds. She was buried in the cemetery 
in the Southwest district in Westchester, Ct., by the side of her 
husband. She was of a quiet and gentle disposition, social and 
pleasing in her manners, and much respected and beloved by her 
relatives and friends. If the poor needed a helper or a friend, 
she was ever ready to sympathize with them and to render such 
aid as time and strength would permit her to do. The following 
words of King Lemuel in Proverbs, Chapter 31, are applicable to 
her: "She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold 
the distaff. She stretcheth out her hands to the poor: yea, she 
reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She openeth her mouth 
with wisdom: and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She 
looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the 
bread of idleness." She was blind the last eight years of her 
life. Amaziah Brainard 's life was spent in his native town, 
Colchester, Westchester Soc. In his earlier years he taught school 
for several seasons with success; later he occupied many posi- 
tions of honor and trust. He was acting justice of the peace 
from 1828 to 1835, inclusive, and in 1839. He represented his 
town in the legislature during the sessions of 1829 and 1830 with 
much credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. He 
was a man of large and commanding figure, being six feet and 
one inch in height and correspondingly heavy. Possessing more 
than an ordinary degree of intelligence and of strict integrity, he 
enjoyed the honor and respect of his associates during life and 
was lamented at death. He was a farmer, having built his house 
at the time of his marriage on the site where his grandfather 
built when he settled in the southwest district, Westchester

cival, of Haddam, Ct., and was Surgeon in the Revolution (in the Navy three 
years), — practiced medicine in Pittsfield, Mass., ten years, and then removed to 
New Berlin, Chenango Co., N. Y., then a wilderness country, and had an extensive 
practice during his life, and was much esteemed. He d. Feb. 6, 1820. She d. Sept. 
13, 1840, ae. 76. 

Doctor Foote read medicine with Doctor Percival, of East Haddam, Ct. Dur- 
ing the war of the Revolution he was three years in the naval service as surgeon. 
He practiced medicine in Pittsfield, Mass., some nine to ten years, and removed 
from thence to New Berlin, Chenango Co., N. Y., at a very early period in the settle- 
ment of this part of this county, and had an extensive practice during his life and 
was much esteemed. During the first few years of his residence in New Berlin, in 
common with the few neighbors who had emigrated to this wilderness, his courage, 
decision and perseverance were often severely tested by the hardships and con- 
flicts he was compelled to endure. Notwithstanding his title to the land he had 
purchased was valid in the law, yet the beasts of the forest, holding a claim by 
right of discovery, refused to yield him peaceable possession. Having, however, 
just had some experience in settling the claims which the British Lion pretended 
to have upon the lands and tenements of this country, he thought he could safely 
and successfully prosecute this matter of dispute with the American Bear. 
Accordingly, as neither party seemed disposed to relinquish his claims, and both 
feeling confident in the justice of their cause and of their superior physical force, 
an appeal to arms was made. A bear seizing a hog belonging to one of the 
neighbors of Doctor Foote, the tocsin of war was sounded, and the little band, 
comprising only three men. Doctor Foote, old Mr. Marvin, and his son Elisha, 
Spartan like, were ready for the conflict. They took up their line of march in the 
trail of the bear, and pursued on until they reached the spot where the bear had 
slain his prize and made a delicious meal of his blood. The bear, and his place of 
rendezvous not being distinctly known by them, they followed on a short distance fur- 
ther and made a halt. A rustling among the leaves was soon heard at a little distance 
from where they stood. In a moment the bear was in sight. The Doctor at once 
levelled his piece and gave him a broadside. A large dog then sprang at the bear 
and was instantly overpowered. It soon became evident from the treatment the 
dog received while prisoner of the bear that the bear was waging a war of exter- 
mination. Their ammunition exhausted, and but one gun in the company, and the 
dog suffering pains and penalties worse than those of a Romish Inquisition, con- 
spired to create a moment of disagreeable suspense. At length the Doctor mounted 



(6) 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 



the log under which his dog was confined by the bear and commenced beating him 
with the breech of his gun, hoping by this manoeuvre at least to liberate his dog 
from the very unkind embrace of the bear. But the bear, indignant at such an 
interference when he was contending with the champion of the canine race, rose 
in all his brutish majesty, and at one fell swoop brought the Doctor to the 
ground. The dog, acting on the principle that discretion is the better part of 
valor, made good his escape to the house, and was unhesitatingly entered on the 
list of killed and wounded. While the Doctor was on the ground being mangled 
and torn by the bear, Mr. Marvin, the younger, undertook to save the Doctor's 
life at the risk of his own. He seized the bear, thinking that he could not only 
separate the bear from the Doctor but escape himself from being hurt. But 
no sooner had he touched the animal than he himself was in the same dangerous 
situation, the bear having him down, mangling and tearing his limbs with, if 
possible, increased ferocity. While the Doctor was revolving in his mind their 
situation and danger, the thought of his little pocket Barlow knife, the only 
weapon now left with which there was any chance of dispatching their more than 
troublesome antagonist. But before he could get his knife from his pocket and 
open it, his hands and arms being badly wounded, Mr. Marvin, the elder, seeing 
his son in such imminent danger, rushed into the arena for his rescue. The father 
made a pass at the ears of old Bruin, with the expectation of drawing him back- 
wards beyond the reach of his son, and not only relieve his son but escape him- 
self. It is thought he would have remained a spectator of the tragedy had it not 
been for his strong paternal feelings. But the bear had been too long the forest 
king to permit such familiarity from an invader of his dominions. He, therefore, 
as quick as thought turned upon him, and with one blow of his paw felled him 
to the ground. No sooner had the bear laid him prostrate than he proceeded to 
gnaw his head and mangle his limbs with great cruelty. By this time the Doctor 
had succeeded in opening his knife, and he walked up to the bear, threw his arm 
over on the opposite side of him, thinking that as soon as the bear felt the thrust 
of his knife he would wheel about in an opposite direction from him. The Doctor 
stabbed the bear twice over the region of the heart, when he turned suddenly 
round as was anticipated, and set off in a tangent for the swamp at the foot of the 
hill, mortally wounded. Just at the moment the bear started to leave the field of 
action he met a Mr. Franklin, who had been sent by the wives of Doctor Foote 
and Mr. Marvin as a kind of reinforcement to their husbands. The moment 
Franklin came in sight of the bear, supposing the bear in pursuit of him, he 
wheeled and took to his heels down the hill, running with the speed of the wind. 
Upon looking back, after coming in sight of the women, he then for the first time 
ascertained that the bear was not, and never had been, in pursuit of him, but was 
making his way, with all necessary speed, to the swamp, to slake his thirst, 
created by loss of blood. Franklin came up to where the women stood, and on 
their anxious inquiry after the fate of their husbands and son, Franklin faintly 
ejaculated, 'Dead! all dead!" "Go call Elder Camp" they quickly rejoined. 
Franklin, somewhat recovered from his fatigue and fright, started off. Upon arriv- 
ing at the bank of the Unadilla, opposite to Elder Camp's house, he screamed at 
the top of his voice, "Elder Camp! Elder Camp!" On hearing such unearthly 
cries the Elder hurried out of his house and asked "What's wanted?" "There 
are four men dead," replied Franklin. "Four men dead," echoed the Elder, 
"who are they?" "They are," says Franklin, in a piteous tone, "Doctor Foote, 
old Mr. Marvin, his son Elisha, and myself. All are dead and gone!"

247. JUDGE ISAAC FOOTE, (76, 25, 9, 3,) b. Jan. 4, 1746; m. Mary Kellogg 
at Colchester, Ct., May 31, 1768. She was the daughter of Jonathan Kellogg, Jr., 
of that place, and she was a descendant in the fourth generation of Joseph 
Kellogg, first of Farmington, Ct., and afterwards of Hadley, Mass. She died in 
Smyrna, Nov. 15, 1826, aged 82. In the common schools of that town and in his 
early puritan home, he received that sound, but plain elementary instruction and 
that religious training which fitted him for a long life of practical usefulness, of 
strict integrity, and the most consistent piety. 

"In May, 1773, he removed from Colchester to what was called Square Pond 
Settlement, being within the limits of East Winsor, and bounding on West 
Stafford, Ct. In May, 1778, he removed to Stafford, and in the year- 1779 he was 
by united application of the people appointed Justice of the Peace, which office he 
continued to hold until he removed from that state. He was frequently elected 
to represent the town of Stafford in the General Assembly of Connecticut, and 
was a delegate to the convention to consider the adoption of the Constitution of 
the United States. 

This was the character Judge Foote had attained at an early day in his native 
state. That he was a soldier in the Revolution is evidenced by the following 
extract from a letter written by him in the 87th year of his age, in 1832, to Hon. 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 85 

Elial T, Foote, and still preserved by a son of the latter, H. A. Foote, Esq., of 
New York, who has furnished the writer of this sketch with a copy of the same. 
He says: There was a mistake in the account that Rennsalaer (Foote) gives about 
Ebenezer's (Judge Foote 's younger brother, who was afterwards a prominent 
citizen of Delhi, Delaware County, where he was successively Member of Assembly, 
District Attorney, State Senator and County Judge,) swimming across the Hudson 
river in the winter. He was taken prisoner by the enemy at the evacuation of 
New York, I think in September (1776). I was there at the same time as a 
militiaman. 

He was taken by the Hessians in that retreat, but he got away from them and 
fled to the river, and he, with three others who made their escape, collected some 
logs and withed them together and shoved out into the river with setting poles, 
and the tide being going out then it wafted them toward the British shipping. 
Some people from the Jersey side seeing their condition manned a boat and went 
out and took them across to the Jersey side, and the next day they crossed back 
again and came into camp where I was." No further evidence than this is needed 
of the fact that he was a patriot soldier in the stormy days of the Eevolution. 

But to give a little further retrospective glimpse of the honorable ancestry of 
Judge Foote, we quote again from his letter above referred to, as follows: "Grand- 
father (Nathaniel Foote 3rd) was the first magistrate in Colchester, and sustained 
that office to a very advanced age; and my father (Daniel Foote), who was the 
third son, and always lived with him, succeeded him in that office, and held it 
about the same length of time." The Judge in his worthy career was simply 
following on in the line of those who had preceded him. 

The graphic account of the removal of the family of Isaac Foote to what was 
then denominated the town of Sherburne, and of their movements for a few years 
prior thereto, is herewith given from the pen of Isaac Foote, Jr.: "My father 
(Judge Foote) at an early day seemed to have an unconquerable desire to settle 
in some part of the then western country. In pursuance of this desire he joined a 
company in 1788 in the purchase of a very desirable tract of land adjoining the 
Susquehanna river in Wyoming County, Pa., but after spending two or three 
seasons at work preparatory to settle thereon with his family, the title proved 
insufficient, and he lost his land and all his labor, and several hundred dollars 
which he advanced in payment. Having sold his farm in Stafford, Ct., he pur- 
chased an hundred acres in Franklin, now Delaware County, N. Y., on which there 
was a log house and about 35 acres of cleared land, on to which he proposed to 
move his family and look for a better location. The fall after I was fourteen 
years old (1790) my father took me with a hired man and a team and a few 
cattle and set off for Franklin, intending to return for the family in the winter 
following. There was about 50 miles between Catskill and Franklin, where the 
State road was not cleared out so that a wheeled carriage could pass. We there- 
fore left the wagon and took a few light articles on a sled and went through to 
Franklin. The first sleighing we returned to our wagon, put our goods on a sled 
and started back for Franklin — then a very new place. There was one place where 
there was ten miles between houses, and it was so that the day we passed over the 
ten miles was an uncommon cold one, and it was eight o'clock at night before we 
got through. Consequently I became so benumbed that I could hardly walk. 
My father Lurried through about a mile and a half to the first house. My feet, 
hands and ears were badly frozen, so that coming to the fire put me in extreme 
pain. I will only add that we got to Franklin the next day. 



86 FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

"My father left me with a friend and returned for the family. But our mis- 
fortunes did not end here. When my father got home he found one of my sisters 
very sick, so that she could not be moved until the sleighing was gone; and then 
the neighbours, who were unwilling that my father and his family should move 
away, prevailed upon him to purchase a farm which was for sale at a low rate in 
that vicinity. 

"My father consequently returned to Franklin early in the spring, made 
arrangements for me to stay until June, and then take a pair of oxen and the 
horse, and as many articles as the team could draw on a sled and go to where the 
wagon was left and take as many things as the team could draw from there and 
so return home. I got home safe and had the credit of performing a service un- 
usual for a boy of my age. 

"My father being still bent on getting into some part of the western country, 
after improving his new farm awhile took a journey to Chenango; found the 8th 
township (present Smyrna) with but a very few settlers; made a contract for 
about 700 acres of land, returned home and made preparations for removing the 
family on to the 100 acres which he had previously purchased at Franklin, and 
there abide until he could complete arrangements for moving to the 8th township, 
(then part of Sherburne). 

"In the year 1794, in August, my father hired a man to cut the timber on 
five acres, and sent me to cook and do what I could in the way of making pre- 
parations for removing the following winter, and he was to join us in two or 
three weeks and help roll up the logs for a house, and leave me to finish it as best 
I could. At this time there was a poor wagon road from Franklin to Oxford, and 
my father sent by a person going through with a wagon, a barrel with some meat, 
and some utensils for cooking, and also a bag of flour, to be left at Mr. Hovey's 
till called for by myself or his order. These articles were soon called for, and 
Col. Hovey sent the man who stored them to deliver them to me. They were put 
upon a sled, and supposed to be all right, (I had not seen the barrel which was 
sent from Franklin,) and we set forward. There was no road from Oxford to 
Sherburne excepting through what is now Norwich village, other than marked 
trees, and the underbrush cut out so that we could only get along with a sled, 
and we designed to get to a house four miles from our lot before dark; but in this 
we failed. Soon after sunset it grew very dark, and a heavy rain fell during 
nearly the whole of the night. We had a pair of oxen and a cow. We chained 
the oxen to a tree, secured our flour as well as we could, and waited for daylight. 
As soon as we could see to travel we set forward, and after travelling about one 
and a half miles we reached the house where we had contemplated arriving the 
night before. 

"After drying our clothes and getting breakfast, we set forward again and 
arrived at Mr, Joseph Porter's, adjoining our lot, where we made our home. But 
judge of our surprise, when on opening our barrel, instead of meat, we found a 
quarter of a barrel of hayseed! A blunder justly imputable to Col. Hovey's man 
and myself. But what must be done? It must immediately be carried back, and 
I must do it. I had to travel sixty miles on bare ground, but the business was 
soon done. 

"After a while my father came and helped to roll up the body of a log 
house, and then returned to Franklin, leaving me to finish it, which I did by 
changing works with a man who was doing a job of chopping about two miles 
distant. The house was finished and was called a good one. I remained on the 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 87 



lot until the latter part of December, and then went home to help move the 
family. ' ' 

As to the exact date of Judge Foote's arrival at his new home in the then 
town of Sherburne, present Smyrna, there are different statements, but Judge Foote 
himself, in a record made by him in the album of his grandson, John J. Foote, 
Esq., now of Belvidere, 111., written at Smyrna, in the spring of 1832, says: "In 
February, 1795, I removed to this place." And that may be taken as the absol- 
utely correct date. 

The following further data is copied from the same record above noted: 
"In the year 1798 I was elected Member of the Legislature of the state, and 
procured the incorporation of the County of Chenango and was appointed First 
Judge of the Court of Common Pleas and General Sessions of the Peace, and in 
1800 I was elected Senator for four years. And in 1806 I resigned the office of 
First Judge and retired from all public office." 

In the above memorandum Judge Foote omits to state that in 1796, and the 
next year after his arrival, he was chosen as the first Supervisor of Sherburne, 
representing the town that year at the annual meeting of the Board held at 
Herkimer. And in the following year, 1797, he was appointed a Justice of the 
Peace for the town of Sherburne. Also he omits to state that his retirement from 
the office of Judge was by reason of his having reached the then constitutional 
limitation of sixty years of age, and not because of any inability on his part to 
discharge the duties of that office. Such promotion to public office and such oft 
repeated honors bestowed, and so soon after his arrival in that town and county, 
are remarkable and indubitable evidence of his ability and character, and that 
reputation was well maintained throughout his long and useful life. In fact, 
Judge Foote was a unique representative character of those early times, one of 
the best type of the sturdy sons of rugged New England who wrought well when- 
ever work was to be done, and who helped to lay the foundations of the state and 
the nation. 

His religious faith was the strongest, most potent and controlling force of 
his life, and everything else was made subservient to it. While he was State 
Senator and County Judge he was active in the formation of the Society and 
Ciuirch on Sherburne West Hill, when the old records, largely preserved through 
Ir.s instrumentality, showed that he served as Trustee and Deacon and Clerk, some 
of the time filling all three offices. He was interested in every object which 
promised to conserve the best interests of the community where he lived, chief am' 
first among which he evidently considered the Church, and to that he gave his 
strong and steady support. It is said of him that he was given "much to reading 
and writing, and especially to the study of the Sacred Scriptures, and commenting 
on the same, until wholly deprived of sight." 

The following quaint certificate of Judge and Mrs. Foote's early church 
membership is here given: 

Stafford, 20th October, 1796. 
This certify, whom it may concern, that Isaac Foote, Esq., and Mary, his 
wife, were members in full communion in the church under my care and in good 
standing when they left this place. Esq. Foote was chosen a Deacon in this 
church and served in that office for a number of years before he left us, to 
universal acceptance. And is hereby with Mrs. Foote recommended to any Christian 
society or church wherever Providence may cast them. 

Attest, Isaac Foster, of the First Congregational Church, Stafford.

The above letter is doubtless the one presented by Jndge Foote and his wife 
when they united with the Old Chilrch on Sherburne West Hill, where they re- 
mained members until Mar. 4, 1831, when they, together with their sons, Isaac, 
Jr., Amasa, and Hiram, also Harriet, Sally Irene, Harriet (2nd), and Sally Kellogg 
(Mrs. Amasa) Foote, withdrew to join the Congregational Church at Smyrna. 

Judge Foote only had the benefit of the common school education of those 

primitive times, but that he improved it well there is abundant evidence. He 

was not an orator, but on occasion he was called upon to make public address.

Boston, Mass. He was the third child and second son of Dr. 
Lyman Beecher, and was born during the pastorate of his 
father on the east end of Long Island from 1798 to 1810. Cath- 
erine, who died last year, was the oldest child. She spent her years 
and efforts in advancing female education, founding schools and 
seminaries for girls and teaching and writing for their benefit. 
She was born in 1800. William was the second child. He has 
served his day and generation in the ministry and now lives a 
retired life in Chicago. Then comes Dr. Edward Beecher, third in 
the line of a remarkable family. He graduated at Yale College 
in 1822, and studied theology at Andover and New Haven; became 
tutor in Yale College in 1825, and pastor of Park Street Church, 
Boston, in 1826, which post he held until 1831, when he went to 
Jacksonville, 111., and was mainly instrumental in establishing the 
college at that place, of which he became its first president, and

labored not only as president and professor, but also as financial 
agent for it. After fourteen years' service there he returned to 
Boston and took charge of Salem church, in the North End, where 
he remained twelve years and labored not only there but in revi- 
vals in other churches, and also edited the Congregationalist, the 
denominational organ. After this the doctor returned to Illinois 
and organized a church in Galesburg, the seat of Knox College, and 
took charge of it, at the same time giving lectures in the theological 
seminary in Chicago. When he resigned that charge eight years 
ago he settled down in Brooklyn, and has lived in that city ever 
since. After the doctor in the family order came George, who, 
while in the ministry in Wellsville, Ohio, lost his life by accident. 
A son of his is still in the ministry. Then comes Henry Ward 
Beecher, Thomas K., next, then Charles, who was for many years 
a pastor at Georgetown, Mass; then James, who is a pastor in the 
western part of New York State. Mrs. Perkins and Mrs. Stowe 
follow in succession. The father of this family was married twice, 
so that the children had not all one mother.

Beecher and the Beporter. — ' ' What name do you give your place, 
Mr. Beecher?" 

"Oh, it's got a new name every year. What is its name this year, 
ma?" he called out to Mrs. Beecher, who was in the library. 

' ' Beecher 's Farm, ' ' she replied. 

"I don't mean that; I mean its English name." 

"Boscobel." 

"Yes, that's it, Boscobel, "continued Mr. Beecher, addressing the 
reporter. * ' I don 't know exactly what it means, though, perhaps, 
it might mean beautiful bosc or woods; but I'll tell you how I 
came to give it this name. You remember that Charles II., after 
being defeated in battle, concealed himself from the enemy by 
hiding in the trunk of a hollow tree. That tree stood on an estate 
belonging to an ancestor of mine on my mother 's side named Foote, 
who called his place Boscobel. He assisted Charles II. to escape, 
and the latter, on his restoration to the throne, gave my ancestor 
the right to wear a coat-of-arms. I have, as you see, adopted the 
name of the ancestral home and have also adopted the Foote coat- 
of-arms. ' ' 

"Then you have a coat-of-arms?" 

"Oh, I have two — the Beecher and the Foote," replied the 
eminent divine, with a smile ; ' ' one for winter and the other for 
summer wear. ' ' 

"How long have you occupied Boscobel?" 

" It 's twenty-three years since I bought the ground. God made 
that, but I put the hair on it. I've planted between 6,000 and

At nineteen Ebenezer was found with the Minute men at Bunker Hill; made 
sergeant of the Second Conn.; was at Trenton and Valley Forge; taken prisoner 
at the battle of Fort Washington, and confined to the old Bridewell, managed to 
escape, and by means of a plank found on the shore swam the Hudson in the 
month of December, but the exposure brought on a severe illness, and he never 
again could engage in active service. His patriotism, however, would not allow 
him to remnin an outsider, and we next find him in the Commissary Department 
at General Washington's headquarters on the Hudson, where he remained until 
his health again forced his resignation just before the close of the war. He saw 
much of Washington; was temporarily on his Staff, and retired with the rank of 
Major. 

One of the most interesting events of his life is well related by Mr. Abbatt, 
in his delightful work entitled "The Crisis of the Revolution," when Capt. 
Foote, in the early morning of Sept. 22, 1780, for a few moments held the fate of 
that gallant soldier. Major Andre, in his hands. As officer in command at Crom- 
pond, Capt. Foote scanned the pass produced by Andre, but knowing Benedict 
Arnold and his writing well, and seeing that his appended signature was correct, 
allowed the party to proceed. 

After the war Major Foote engaged in a large mercantile and shipping busi- 
ness at Newburgh, N. Y., with his brother Justin, who later married Marie Evert- 
son, whose sister had just married Governor Smith of Ct. 

Major Foote, whose duties at headquarters caused him to ride much and far, 
had met and married the charming young Jerusha Purdy, of Yorktown, West- 
chester, N. Y., and from old tales and letters she appears to have remained a 
fascinator until her death. 

Mr. Foote was for a long time Member of Assembly from Ulster, and was 
largely instrumental in procuring the setting off of Delaware Co., where he came 
to reside in Aug., 1797. He was Co. Clerk for a number of years, conducted an 



94 FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 



extensive land agency, and three times was appointed First or Presiding Judge, 
as ■well as acting for a short time as puisne on the bench. He represented the 
old Middle District for four years in the Senate of the State; was nominated for 
Congress, but other duties forced him to decline; sat in the Council of Appoint- 
ment with Gov. Jay, and enjoyed his friendship and confidence. (See Jay Gould's 
History.) 

In 1798 the Co. town was erected, and Judge Foote, as chief citizen, was ap- 
pointed by the Legislature to name it. Not particularly desiring the honor, he 
said to his intimate friends at Albany, the Patroon, Gen. Schuyler, etc., "I think 
I shall decline." They all belonged to a small club, each member bearing some 
fanciful name; Senator Foote 's was "The Great Mogul," and his fellow members 
said, "We will name it for you, and call it after your city, 'Delhi'," which was 
done, to the great annoyance of Gen. Root, a prominent man and politician, who 
had also come to reside in the place, and wished much to have the privilege of 
giving the name. 

As Speaker of the House in 1801, he gained great credit for his "dignity and 
courtesy." At Delhi he assisted in organizing St. John's Church and an Academy, 
which for many years enjoyed a wide reputation; of the one he was made the first 
Senior Warden, of the other, the first President of the Board of Trustees. 

In the issue of Jan. 7, 1830, "The Commercial Advertiser," New York City, 
(See Life of Samuel Foote) in an extended notice of his death, speaks of his 
integrity, of his prominence in the State, and of his beautiful mansion. Arbor Hill, 
on the banks of the Delaware, and of the long list of eminent men who enjoyed 
from time to time its hospitality. A man refined, honest and honorable in all his 
ways. 

His niece, Roxana, married Lyman Beecher, and became the mother of Henry 
Ward and Mrs. H. B. Stowe. A grand-niece married William Seward, Governor and 
Secretary of State.

extensive information, of great urbanity of manner, and held a conspicuous station 
in Town and State. For many years he represented the town in the State Legis- 
lature, and during the most of his active life was Justice of the Peace. He was 
remarkably active and retained the powers of his mind and body to an uncommon 
degree till within a few days of his death (when he took his coat down from the 
peg where it hung he remarked that the coat had been fourteen times to the 
Legislature. I have heard my mother make that statement. You must remember 
Connecticut at that time had two sessions a year, one session held in Hartford 
and one in New Haven). 

Joel Foote, Esq., son of Asa and Jerush (Carter) Foote, and fourth in descent 
from Nathaniel Foote, of Wethersfield, was b. June 26, 1763, in that part of the 
town of Colchester which was set off to Marlborough. He was liberally educated 
and was probably as good a type of an old school gentleman as any resident of tlie 
town. 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 101 

His npiigbtness was proverbial, and his service in places of trust was con- 
stantly sought. He represented the town in the General Assembly twentytwo suc- 
cessive years, and from his general prominence won the title of the "Duke of 
Marlborough." 

He was twice married, his first wife being Abigal Bobbins Lord, daughter of 
Elisha Lord of Marlborough, who died at an early age, leaving four children. 

His second wife was Eachel Lord, daughter of Samuel P. Lord, of East 
Haddam. Eight children were born of this marriage. His death occurred at 
Marlborough July 12, 1846, at the age of 83 years.

1014. i. SOLOMON, b. at Cornwall, Vt., Nov. 19, 1802; m. 1st, 1839, 
Emily, dau. of William Fay, of Rutland, Vt. To them was b. a 
dau., Ellen Eliza, who died Mar. 14, 1841, ae. 10 months. The 
mother d. May 2, 1842, ae. 26. He m. 2nd Mary Ann, wid. of 
William Dana, and dau, of Henry Hodges, of Clarendon, Vt. She 
was b. Apr. 16, 1805; d. Aug. 5, 1881. 

Solomon Foote, Senator, representative in Congress for nine- 
teen years, like Bradley and Edmunds long president pro. tern. 
of the Senate, and among the greatest of the succession of re- 
markable men Vermont has kept in the Senate, with hardly an 
exception, from the beginning, was a native of the State. His 
father died when young Solomon was only nine years old, and 
the boy was left to the training of an intelligent and prayerful 
mother. With intermissions of farm work and teaching of dis- 
trict schools to earn money, he fitted for college and graduated 
from Middlebury in 1826. For the next five years, except one 
year while he was a tutor at Middlebury, he was preceptor of 
Castleton Academy, and Professor of Natural Philosophy at the 
Vermont Medical School at that place. He reestablished the 
Academy on a broader basis, erected a handsome and spacious 
edifice, and, indeed, achieved a large success as a pedagogue, as 
he did with everything he took hold of in life. 

But while teaching he had pursued the study of law; was ad- 
mitted to the bar in 1831, and established himself in practice at 
Eutland. He at once plunged into politics, attracted attention 
the next year with an address which he issued in favor of Clay 
for President and against the re-election of Jackson, and from 
this time until his death he was almost constantly before the 
public. Rutland sent him to the Legislature in 1833, again in 
1836- '37- '38, he being Speaker in the last two sessions, and 
freshly enhancing his reputation by the ease and ability with 
which he discharged the duties. From 1836 to 1842 he was 
State's Attorney for Rutland County, and in the latter year was 
elected representative in Congress as an ardent Whig, a follower 
of Clay, and a repudiator of Tyler. His first appearance oh the 
floor was to present a petition for the "protection of American 
producers against the unfriendly and ruinous competition of 
foreign nations. ' ' 

His first speech, June 4, 1844, was in the same line, and this 
was his position as long as he was in Congress. He was one of 
' the Republicans to vote against the low tariff bill of 1857. He, 

of course, fought the Walker tariff bill of 1846 strenuously. He 
earnestly opposed the admission of Texas and the Mexican War, 
whose purpose he declared to be simply to obtain more territory 
for slavery, and denounced the measures of the Polk adminis- 
tration almost uniformly, and especially its construction of the 
Oregon boundary question. He made a hot speech Feb. 10, 1847, 
full of "scornful defiance" of the President for his intimation 
that those who censured the conduct of the Executive in carry- 
ing on the war were guilty of constructive treason. He was one 
of the three intrepid men who came to the rescue of Giddings of 



114 FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 



Ohio when Dawson of Louisiana, supported by four other South- 
erners, pistol in hand, threatened to shoot him for his denun- 
ciation of the "brutal coarseness" and "moral putridity" of 
slavery, and when it looked for a time as if the floor of Con- 
gross was to be a general shooting ground. 

He served in the House two terms, and refused a re-election in 
1841 to return to the practice of law. But he was the next fall 
sent to the Legislature by Eutland, and reelected in 1848, and 
again was Speaker of that body, and in 1850 he was elected to 
the Senate to succeed Judge Phelps, and this was the arena 
where he won his largest fame. He was prominent in the de- 
bates over the Kansas question against the admission of the 
state under the Lecompton constitution. He opposed the scheme 
for the acquisition of Cuba, justified the action of Commodore 
Paulding in the arrest of William "Walker, whose filibustering 
expedition to South America he recognized as a scheme of the 
slavery extensionists. He was a participant in the discussion of 
all Central American matters, and strenuous in insisting that 
England should give up her protectorate over the Mosquito terri- 
tory. He served with Jeff Davis as a commissioner to reorganize 
the course of study and discipline at West Point. He was a 
strong advocate of governmental construction of a railroad to 
the Pacific coast. He carried through the bills for the erection 
of a custom house at Burlington and court houses at Windsor 
and Eutland, and for the improvement of the breakwater at 
Burlington. He served industriously on the committees on pen- 
sions, post-offices and post roads, revolutionary claims, public 
lands, pensions, contingent claims and foreign relations, rising 
steadily by the care and thoroughness of his work to a position 
of leadership. He supervised the enlargement of the capitol and 
the erection of other government structures. He was chairman 
of the committee of arrangements for the inauguration of 
President Lincoln. 

When the extra session of Congress was convened on account 
of the war, July 4, 1861, Mr. Foote was unanimously elected 
president pro tempore, and through the whole of this, the whole 
of the Thirty-seventh and a part of the Thirty-eighth Congress 
he continued in this position. During the trying days of the 
war he did not appear on the floor so much as he had before 
done, evidently regarding speech-making as a needless waste of 
energy when there was so much work to be done, and the party 
in power had things all their own way anyhow. On several im- 
portant occasions, however, he kicked out of party traces. He 
voted against the Legal Tender Act because he regarded it as 
clearly unconstitutional, and against Sumner's Bill in 1861 to 
wipe out slavery in the proposed new state of West Virginia as 
a prerequisite to its admission. He was a delegate to the Ee- 
publican National Convention in 1864. One of his last speeches 
in the Senate was that of Jan. 12, 1865, in favor of terminating 
the Canadian reciprocity treaty. He was with the leaders of his 
party in sharp antagonism to President Johnson and his policy,

but died Mar. 28, 1866, before the crisis in that struggle came, 
though he clearly foresaw it. 

In the name of God Amen. I Solomon Foote of Eutland in the 
County of Eutland and State of Vermont, being of sound and 
deposing mind and memory though infirm and weak in health, 
do make and declaim this to be my last will and testament. 

I give and bequeath all my property and estate, both real and 
personal, to my beloved wife, Mary Ann, to be hers forever, 
subject to the following conditions: it is my will and desire that 
the money I have loaned to my brother Jonathan Foote, and 
which is embraced in two notes, executed by him to me, one for 
$9,000.00 and the other for $3,000, be suffered to remain in his 
hands so long as he lives, he paying the interest thereon of 
8 per cent, per annum stipulated in semi-annual instalments to 
my said wife after the liquidation of the payment of which said 
interest is pledged, and if the said Jonathan shall survive my 
wife I give and bequeath to him the money so loaned to him. 
And order and direct said notes to be canceled. 

And whereas I have procured and deposited on my lot in the 
Cemetery in East Eutland the material for a monument it is my 
will and desire that a monument be constructed from said 
material on said lot in conformity with a plan prepared by U. 
S. Walker, TJ. S. architect, now in the care of I. I. E. Eandall, 
that the said lot be suitably prepared and that the remains of 
my former wife and child be removed and interred herein. And 
I appoint my esteemed friend, John B. Page, of said Eutland, 
executor of this my last will and testament. 

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 
14th day of March, A. D. 1864. 

SOLOMON FOOTE. (L. S.) 

The monument referred to above is situated on the highest 
point of ground in Evergreen Cemetery, Eutland, Vt. It is built 
from Barre granite. The inscription on the south side of the 
monument is: "Solomon Foote, born in Cornwall, Vt., Nov. 19,

Oberlin College in 1890. In 1892 he was chosen superintendent 
of the village schools at Madison, where his excellent manage- 
ment and scholastic attainments have contributed much to make

Madison, and also for a term of eight years on the County Board 
of School Examiners for Lake County. He was a Eepublican in

adherents of that faith in a section that has always been known 
as the Gibraltar of Eepublicanism in Ohio. Being busily en- 
gaged in his duties as teacher and superintendent, Mr. Kimball 
had but little time to work in politics, but at the urgent re- 
quest of his home people he accepted the nomination for Eepre- 
sentative in 1901. He was elected in the fall of that year by a 
very large majority, and re-elected in 1903. While a member 
of the Seventy-fifth and Seventy-sixth General Assemblies, Mr. 
Kimball had an active part in the codification of the municipal 
and school laws of the State. He had been engaged in several

an invalid at that time and was for three years, being finally 
cured by earnest prayer and a Methodist minister who was a 
faith doctor), where she lived until she was m. to Matthew 
Thomas Johnson, Mar. 31, 1857. Matthew T. Johnson was b. 
in Dryden, N. Y., Aug. 4, 1834. At the age of 4 years his 
father, Joseph Johnson, d., leaving him with his mother (a 
weaver) and two sisters, Catherine and Harriet, at home to 
fight life's battles. At the age of 8 years he went to live with 
his brother-in-law, Jesse Trapp, on a farm about three miles 
northwest of Dryden, attending the "Gee School" winters and 
farming summers. At the age of 15 he went to live with his 
brother, Jacob Johnson, on a farm, where he remained until the 
age of 21, when he and his brother Jacob and family moved to 
Kock Island, 111. In Mar., 1857, he returned to Dryden, and on 
Tuesday, Mar. 31, was m. to Helen Eliza McLean in Courtland, 
N. Y. The first four years of married life was spent on rented 
farms. Three years in Kock Island Co. and one year at Big 
Eock, Iowa. In 1861 he bought a farm of 40 acres about one 
mile east of Milan, increasing it to 400 acres in the course of 
18 years. He was a member and elder of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church at Milan, 111., from 1860, to Mar. 1, 1900, and 
Superintendent of the same Sunday School from May, 1869, to 
Mar. 1, 1900, when he retired from farming and moved to Eock 
Island, 111., where he now res. They celebrated their golden 
wedding anniversary on Easter Sunday, Mar. 31, 1907, having 
been m. 50 years on that date at Courtland, Tompkins Co., N. Y., 
by Eev. Albert S. Graves, a minister of the M. E. Church. The 
couple immediately came to Milan, then known as Camden 
Mills, and started their married life on a farm about 2^4 miles 
south of Milan, on the Hoover farm. A notable feature of the 
dinner was the two roast geese that laid golden eggs for the 
honored couple. Another was the bride's cake, a surprise for 
the bride from her son and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. George H. 
Johnson, of Beaumont, Tex. This cake was unique in view of 
the fact that the frosting which covered the dainty golden con- 
fection was incrusted with gold dollars set into the iceing, one 
for each year of married life of the couple. These were all of 



rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 159 



rare coinage and all bore the date of the year of the wedding 
fifty years ago. In addition there were other gold dollars, 
souvenirs for each of the guests about the table, which will 
serve to keep the memory of this gathering green. With the 
dessert there were other golden gifts showered on the couple 
honored on this occasion. Among these was a new gold wedding 
ring to take the place of the worn band that has graced the 
worn hand for half a century. All of the living descendants of 
the couple, their children with their husbands, wives and 
children, 16 in all, were present as follows: Mr. and Mrs. Collins 
Dysart and son George, of Dixon, 111., also their dau., Euth, who

Samuel Foote and Sibbil Doolittle were m. at Hinsdale, near Northfield, Aug. 
8, 1794. About three years later (1797) they removed from Gill with their only 
child (Elial Todd Foote) to the Chenango country, then almost a wilderness, and 
settled in the west part of Sherburne, afterwards called Smyrna. Mr. Samuel 
Foote did not long remain in the west part of the town, but, as stated by his son, 
Elial T. Foote, "soon after 1800, he bought at Sherburne West Hill, and moved 
there; built and opened a country tavern opposite Lansing's (afterwards Lynde's) 
store. In 1806 he built his large front addition (the present Sexton house). I 
recollect in June, 1806, at the time of the great eclipse, I was with father at 
Lathrop's sawmill for a load of boards to finish that house. I remember Mr. 
Lansing well. He boarded with our father while there, and so did both of the 
Lyndes (Tilly and Charles W.) for years."

162 rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 



Again, in speaking of the old Sherburne West Hill Church, of -which Samuel 
Foote and Sibbil, his wife, and Sedate, his sister, were early members, Elial T. 
Foote says: "I recollect the erection of the meeting house there, and the install- 
ation of the Kev. Joshua Knight. Our father (the letter from which this is an 
extract was directed to his brother Erastus, then living in Milwaukee, Wis.), from 
his hard labor did much to build that meeting house and sustain the society." 
And again: "Our father was the first postmaster in Sherburne, appointed by 
General Granger in 1803. The mails from Cooperstown to Homer, and from Utica 
to Oxford crossed at West Hill." That made it an important business centre, 
and showed its growing interest, for prior to 1803, the post office, as Hatch's 
history informs us, had been located at the James Elmore store on the east side 
of the river, he having been, according to the same authority, "the first post- 
master appointed in the place, his commission bearing date of January, 1801," 
which accordingly antedates Mr. Foote 's appointment, though doubtless he was 
the first postmaster at Sherburne West Hill. As the result of Mr. Foote 's un- 
willingness to submit to the rules of the church, which inhibited dancing, as 
stated in the history of the Old Church, he received a dismissal therefrom in July, 
1811, and soon after that time disposed of his inn, which afterwards came into 
the possession of the late Frederick Sexton, by whose descendants it is still occu- 
pied as a residence. 

In 1817 Mr. Samuel Foote removed to Plymouth, Chenango Co., where with a 
few others he was instrumental in building the First Congregational Church, and 
settling the first minister. He was elected deacon of this church. About the year 
1828 he and his wife removed to Chautauqua Co., where most of their children 
had settled. 

In 1832 his wife, Sibbil Doolittle, died at their home near Jamestown, N. T. 
He was deacon of the First Presbyterian Church in Jamestown for some fifteen 
years prior to his death, which occurred while on a visit to the home of his son, 
Obed Foote, at Grand Eapids, Mich., Jan. 25, 1848, at the age of 78. He was 
a warm hearted, sincere Christian, devoted in his love for his Saviour. He was 
buried at Fulton St. Cemetery, Grand Kapids. Ees., Gill, Mass., Sherburn,

Jan., 1816. He entered into partnership with his brother on being admitted an 
Attorney. He practiced law in Albany until May, 1828, when he removed to the 
city of New York. He was appointed District Attorney for the city and county 
of Albany, under the administration of Governor Clinton, in July, 1819, and 
held the office until Feb., 1821, when he was removed to make room for the Hon. 
Benjamin Butler, who was appointed in his place. 

In 1831 his Alma Mater, Union College, conferred upon him the honorary 
degree of Master of Arts, and in 1844 Geneva College also honored him with the 
degree of Doctor of Laws. On April 10, 1851, he was appointed by Gov. Hunt, 
without his knowledge or solicitation, as Presiding Judge of the Court of Appeals,

to fill the unexpired term of Judge Bronson, resigned. His appointment was 
universally approved. The following is a comment upon his appointment by one 
of the leading journals of the State: 

"The Hon. Samuel A. Foote has been appointed, by Governor Hunt, the suc- 
cessor to Judge Bronson, resigned — a very exceptionable selection. Mr. Foote is 
an eminent lawyer and upright man, possessing qualifications and traits of char- 
acter especially adapting him to discharge the high functions of the station 
with great ability and approbation. Mr. Foote has been extensively engaged in 
his profession for over 25 years. He removed from Albany. to this city in 1828, 
where he since practiced in the higher courts — having the last two years spent a 
portion of his time at his seat at Geneva. It is a subject of real congratulation 
when such a man as Mr. Foote is elevated to the Bench. In all his personal 
habits and dispositions Mr. Foote is admirably adapted for judicial service — 
diligent and methodical, patient and mild, constant and just — iwe have the best 
assurances that, while enlightened justice will be dispensed and the purest judicial 
rectitude observed, true dignity and conciliatory deportment will also be dis- 
played by the appointee. — New York Herald, April 11, 1851." 

The Whig Convention, held at Syracuse in Sept. of the same year, nominated 
him as their candidate for Judge of the Court of Appeals for the eight year 
term, commencing in Jan. of the following year, but the Whig party met with 
defeat at the general election. 

In 1853 Hobart College likewise conferred upon him the honorary degree of 
Doctor of Laws. In 1855 the Eepublicans of Ontario Co., during his absence, and 
without his knowledge, nominated him as their candidate for the General Assem- 
bly. This was his first afiiliation with the Eepublican Party, and while he 
preferred the quiet home life which at this age he had so well earned and richly 
deserved, yet he felt it his duty to accept and was elected by a large majority. 
He was also nominated and elected the following year. During his two terms in 
the General Assembly he earned the cognomen of "Watch Dog of the Treasury. " 

At and after this period .Judge Foote devoted most of his time to the general 
pursuits of agriculture at his seat in Geneva, and to the rearing of his large 
family, appearing only in the higher Courts of the State in important cases. He 
d. May 11, 1878, at Geneva, N. Y.

Williams College, and afterwards entered into what promised to 
be a brilliant career in the practice of law in New York City 
with his father, but was compelled on account of his health to 
go to Minnesota where, at the beginning of the Civil War, he 
enlisted and served a short time as Captain of 2nd Minn, Eegt. 
(Infantry), and was in the battle of Mills Springs, Ky., one of 
the first engagements of the war. His health broke down at 
that time, and he proceeded to his father's home in Geneva, N. 
Y., to die, and was in the service at the time of his death. He

have liked to have entered the ministry, but his father having left a very large 
farm to be looked after it seemed necessary that he, the youngest child, should 
remain on the homestead. He was well versed in all historical literature, both 
ancient and modem, and knew the Bible literally by heart. While he was still a 
young man he journeyed on horseback for a number of winters through some of 
the western states, principally 111. and Wis., preaching and helping to establish 
church organizations in new settlements. He lived an honorable life, well deserv-

The Eeverend Lewis Eay (Ehea) Foote, D. D., had a re- 
markably useful and interesting career as a minister in Brooklyn, 
N. Y., for a whole generation. He was the most efficient pastor 
of the Throop Avenue Presbyterian Church, and a potent factor 
in the life of his city for 32 years. It is a rare thing for a 
clergyman to find his life work in one pastorate (as was his), 
and one in which the young man and the young church grow to 
maturity and great influence together. 

He was the youngest son of Dr. Dan Foote and Sarah Con- 
over Gordon, and was b. in South New Berlin, N. Y. His mother 
was a descendant of the Eheas and Gordons of Monmouth Co., 
N. J., families that had lived in that section for many years 
prior to the Eevolution, and whose homestead farm was the 
scene of the Battle of Monmouth. His mother died when Lewis 
Eay was three years of age, and his lonely, motherless childhood 
was spent with relatives in Sherburne, N. Y., near the place of 
his birth. At 14 he became self supporting, working as a farm 
laborer. This life on the farm laid the foundation of a rugged 
constitution, and there was implanted the germ of a profound 
love of nature which was fostered, not only by his intimate asso- 
ciation with nature and his personal observations, but by the 
reverent habit of recognizing God as the author of it all. The 
memory of these early hardships gave him the power of an 
intelligent sympathy with those who toil. Throughout his whole 
life he found a spiritual uplift, physical and mental rest, in 
God's great outdoors. 

When 15 years of age he gave his heart to Christ and be- 
came a member of the Congregational Church at Sherburne. 
That step was taken deliberately and at a time of no unusual 
religious effort. It was a complete surrender and the logical re- 
sult of his naturally spiritual temperament. 

He was a tall manly-looking boy, and there was no hesita- 
tion on the part of the recruiting officers to accept him when he 
enlisted for the war in Sept., 1861. He served one year in the 



rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 195 

61st N. Y. Vol. Infantry Eegt., from Sept. 1861 to 1862, and was 
honorably discharged because of a wound received at Fair Oaks 
June 1st, 1862. 

Upon recovering his health he entered Dr. Holbrook's prep- 
aratory school at Clinton, N. Y., and in the fall of 1865 matricu- 
lated in the freshman class of Hamilton College, from which he 
graduated in June, 1869. He was a member of the Delta Kappa 
Epsilon fraternity and was an excellent student, ranking par- 
ticularly high in oratory. After his graduation from Union 
Theological Seminary in 1872, he was for a year engaged in 
mission work in New York City. He assumed his duties as 
pastor of the Throop Avenue Church Nov. 1, 1873, and continued 
till his death, Dec. 19, 1906. 

This church was organized in 1862 and had but a handful 
of members when Dr. Foote entered upon his work, but it was 
located in a growing city where the vigorous and consecrated 
young man soon saw the fruits of his efforts. During the first 
25 years the annual increase in church membership averaged 
close to a hundred, over half of whom were members of the 
Sabbath School, and united with the church on the profession of 
their faith. From 1885 to 1895 the church was famous for having 
under its care the largest Sabbath School in the Presbyterian 
connection in the United States. Throughout the 32 years of 
Dr. Foote 's pastorate the amount of money given for benevolent 
purposes, on the average, exceeded that used for church ex- 
penses by about a thousand dollars annually, notwithstanding 
the fact that a new, handsome edifice was erected in 1890, which 
was never encumbered by a debt. 

Dr. Foote was essentially a pastor. He knew his people in 
their homes. A prominent minister of his city said of him: "A 
truer friend never lived. He was a friend who would rebuke 
but always in love; he would advise but always with deference 
to the judgment and the conviction of those to whom he gave 
advice. He rejoiced in the success that came to a friend and 
sorrowed in his sorrow." He lived in a singular atmosphere of 
love. He was absolutely permeated with his religion. He lived 
it and gloried in it. 

Dr. Foote believed in civic righteousness and was a fearless 
denouncer of political corruption. Next to his God he loved his 
country. He was a careful student of public issues and was 
always alert and ready to speak, work and cast his vote for the 
promotion of good government. The following is from the pen 
of one of the young men of his church and appeared in the 
press at the time of his death: "Dr. Foote was a man's man — 
one who, analyzed by the searching scrutiny that men are prone 
to give to clergymen, stood the test grandly, and for a third of 
a century was the exemplar of practical Christianity and lofty 
patriotism. Men loved and trusted him, confident in his genuine- 
ness and his belief in every word that he preached." 

As to theology. Dr. Foote was a conservative. Included in 
the resolutions adopted by the Brooklyn Presbytery is the follow- 



196 rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

ing: "Dr. Foote believed with all his soul that the Scriptures 
are the inspired revelation of God, that the Gospel is true and is 
the power of God unto the salvation of men. He was sure of his 
faith. It was clear, strong, positive, afJEirniative. In the secret 
places of his soul he had proved it, therefore he could defend it — 
and he did. He stood foursquare to all the theological winds that 
blew. It was a tonic to faith to know him and to hear him."

Isaac Foote, Jr., came to the then town of Sherburne, in 1794, in company with 
his father, when only 18 years of age. His son, Isaac 3rd, of Norwich, in a pub- 
lished communication, says of him: "He remained at home until 26 years old, with 
the exception of a year spent in the Academy at Clinton, where he took the highest 
honors. He helped to clear his father's farm and at the age above named (26) he 
received from him the part of the farm afterwards owned by Nelson Bowers. On Dec. 
4, 1802, he m. Miss Harriet Hyde, b. Feb. 18, 1784, at Lenox, Mass., dau. of Gen.

led another for the use of the bride on their wedding trip. After their marriage they 
started back for Smyrna, accompanied by a brother of my mother, who drove a cow 
and ten sheep, the setting out which she received from her father. It required four

days to make the journey, the road then being mostly through the wilderness, and 
followed by marked trees. There were only occasional settlements where they could 
obtain food and lodgings. The last night on their way they stopped at a tavern 
kept by Hascall Eansf ord, which stood a short distance south of the Lamb place. ' ' 

The following is from a memorandum by his own hand, date of Apr. 13, 1848: 
"At the age of 21 years I was chosen Constable and Collector, to which office I was 
appointed six or seven years in succession, and until I declined the appointment. At 
the age of 23 I was appointed Under SherifE of the County of Chenango, and was 
the first that was so appointed after the county was organized, which office I held for 
nine years and under three different Sheriffs, all of a different political creed from 
that which I had adopted. In the year 1808 was chosen a Deacon in the Second 
Congregational Church (Sherburne West Hill), and subsequently chosen to the same 
office in the First Congregational Church in Smyrna, which office, though unworthy, 
I still hold. In 1803 was appointed to the office of Adjutant of the Regiment then 
commanded by Col. Benjamin Hovey; served five years and resigned. In the year 
1810 was appointed High Sheriff of the County of Chenango, and held the office 3 
years. In the year 1814 was appointed Agent for the Hon. Egbert Benson, the 
Executor of the Hon. John Lawrence, of New York; continued his Agent until the 
estate was divided between the heirs, by whom I was chosen to make the division 
of their lands in Chenango County, which was done to their acceptance. Also was 
intrusted with the making of the division between the heirs aforesaid and Daniel 
McCormick, Esq., of New York, who was joint owner with Judge Lawrence, of the 
town of Smyrna, and that division was also accepted. Was afterwards Agent for 
the heirs of Judge Lawrence and Daniel McCormick, Esq., also for four of the 
Livingston family, who owned four-fifths of the town of Otselic, which has all been 
sold, the purchase money paid, and my agency satisfactorily closed. The land so 
committed to my care in Smyrna, Plymouth, Columbus, Norwich and Otselic, I sup- 
pose in all amounted to about 30,000 acres."

lived until his death at 92 years of age. Was eminently a Christian man, a Deacon 
in the Congregational Church for many years, and seemed to take more interest in 
upbuilding the Church than he did his own affairs. Was a man of strict integrity,

it is said he got the better of Tilly Lynde, then a young merchant on Sherburne

law in the office of Judge Hubbard at Hamilton, commencing in 1809, and was 
admitted to practice in 1813, so continuing in his chosen profession until old age. He 
became eminent as a counseUor-at-law, and solicitor in chancery, and in the District 
Court of the United States. He early became pronounced in his anti-slavery senti-

to Gainesville Creek, N. Y., in 1832. He helped to organize Gainesville Creek 
Church. He lived most of the time in or near Eagle Valley, N. Y. He was 
one of the first in Eagle Valley Church. He drew the first stick of timber and 
the first load of stone to build the church with. He came there when the country 
was new. People lived in log houses, and neighbors were few and scattering. 
Though he found it difficult to live and support quite a large family, still if any- 
thing was neglected, it was something of a worldly nature, and never his God 
or the cause of his Savior. Indeed he was a pillar in the church; and in a 
religious point of view he was truly an extraordinary man. He d. Nov. 18, 1876.

d, in Lee, Jan. 24, 1867, ae. 88 years. 

Of their eight ch., four sons were pioneers in the settlement of Ohio. Three 
daus. became teachers. One, the mother of Rev. Dr. Alvin Foote Sherrill, was 
chosen assistant to Mary Lyon at Mt. Holyoke. Marshall Foote was the son to 
remain on the farm, where his well spent life was closed in 1894 at the age of 
88 years. 

In 1757 Jonathan Foote came from Colchester, Ct., and secured by purchase 
and by grant 1,200 acres of land. He sold some of it to settlers and reserved 
enough for a farm for each of his three sons. To his son Alvan he gave the 
farm upon which the residence is located. It consists of 225 acres, including 
woodlands and contains extensive deposits of sand which have supplied the town 
for building purposes for many years. Alvan selected this place for a house which 
he built in 1797. It was burned in 1814 and the present house was erected in 
the same year. It is one of the best preserved of the old Colonial houses in this 
part of the State. 

Alvan Foote was early in life imbued with the spirit of '76 and organized a 
company of militia of which he was chosen captain, and for many years he led 
his company at the "annual trainings," which day was a holiday enjoyed by the 
whole population. In 1797 he m. Sally Percival, dau. of Capt. Elisha Percival, 
of Lenox. On the 60th anniversary of their marriage the first golden wedding ever 
celebrated in Lee was attended by a large company of friends. The aged couple 
enjoyed seven years of wedded life after that event. Capt. Foote d. in his 96th 
year. 

Capt. Foote was b. and always lived on the farm inherited from his father 
and grandfather. He was a Captain of Militia, a prominent farmer, and highly 
respected citizen. In 1798 he built a house, m. the dau. of Capt. Elisha Percival,

where she taught school for two years, when her parents moved 
to Otoe Co., Neb., in 1857. She taught a brief term in the 
summer of 1858; m. at Nebraska City, Neb., Oct. 20, 1858, Albert 
Nelson, son of Wesley and Lora (Hooker) Hall, of Churchville, 
Canada. Res., Santa Paula, Cal. 

(1) Prof. Winfield Scott Hall, b. Jan. 5, 1861, at Batavia, 111.; 
m. Oct. 11, 1888, Jeannette, dau. of William N. and Mary (Abbott) 
Winter. She was b. Dec. 15, 1860. On Jan. 5, 1861, a son was 
b. to Albert N. Hall and Adelia Foote Hall. When a name was 
chosen, Lincoln had made his second call for volunteers, war was 
in the air, and the boy was christened Winfield Scott. In a few 
weeks Albert N. Hall marched away with the Fifty-second 
Illinois to join Ulysses S. Grant's command in Western Ken- 
tucky. He took part in the engagements at Paducah, Fort Donel- 
son, Shiloh and Corinth, A wound at Corinth retired him from 
the firing line for the rest of the war. Returning from the war 
in 1865, three years were required to so far mend his broken 
fortunes that Albert N. Hall could, with his family, now in- 
creased by a second son, join the great tide of army veterans who 
were going west to locate "soldiers' homesteads." Locating 
temporarily near Nebraska City, he later moved to the frontier, 
and took a homestead near Hastings, Nebraska, where he has 
remained to see a trackless plain develop into a thickly settled 
and prosperous community, with fine schools, numerous 
churches, and other marks of prosperity and progress. The 
pioneer life with its privations and its adventures tended to 
develop the best that was in Winfield S. Hall. The names of 
Lincoln and Grant were household words, and the lives of these 
and others of the nation's heroes were ever held up by the 
parents as examples of what may be accomplished by overcoming 
difficulties. A difficulty was defined as something to be squarely 
faced and promptly overcome. The word "failure" was not in 



254 rOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 



the vocabulary. The fact that schools were elementary in grade 
and accessible only in winter was no reason why one should not 
receive an education. With the father's encouragement and the 
mother's guidance, Winfield studied mornings and evenijgs in 
winter and continued the studies through the summer, carrying 
Latin paradigms or mathematical problems to the field and 
mastering them while at work. In the fall of 18S1 he entered 
the Freshman class of the Northwestern University, choosing the 
course in Modern Languages, Mathematics and the Natural 
Sciences. At the end of the Sophomore year his success may be 
measured by his winning of the prize in Botany and receiving 
"special mention" in Mathematics. The meagre savings of his 
teaching all exhausted, it now became necessary for him to earn 
his way as he went. Having decided to enter the medical 
profession, he entered the Chicago Medical College, which was 
affiliated with the Northwestern University, and earned his first 
year's expenses by delivering morning papers The pittance 
($3.25 per week) received for his seven-mile jaunt before bieak- 
fast every morning had to be expended very judiciously to cover 
the items of board, room, fuel, laundry, books and clothing. 
In the following spring he was put in charge of the Evanston 
Boat Club's house and boats, a position which brought him 
again into touch with the college life which he had left so 
regretfully and which he longed to enter again. The following 
year he resumed his Liberal Arts studies, and received in 1887, 
from Northwestern University, the degree of Bachelor of Science, 
graduating with general honors in scholarship. During his Senior 
year in college he was made instructor in Mathematics and 
Science in the Chicago Athenaeum, teaching evening classes. This 
position solved the financial problem, and the opportunities for 
day classes and private tutoring in summer enabled him to have 
a bank balance of $500 at the end of his medical course. The 
medical studies were resumed, and in Apr., 1888, he received 
from the Chicago Medical College the degree of Doctor of 
Medicine. At graduation from the medical school he won the 
Ingalls Prize of $100, given by Ephraim Ingalls to the one who 
should pass the best examination in the whole field of Language, 
Literature, History, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, 
Astronomy, Geology, and the whole medical course of three years. 
He won also the Fowler prize of a $100 set of oculist 's test 
lenses, for the best examination in theoretical and applied optics. 
He also won an interneship in Mercy Hospital, Chicago. On 
Oct. 11, 1888, Dr. Hall m. Jeannette Winter, and entered upon 
his interneship in Nov. During the year in Mercy Hospital he 
made a special study of a number of cases of Pathology, and on 
a thesis entitled "The Eelation of Pathology to the Evolution 
Theory," received in June, 1889, from Northwestern University, 
the degree of Master of Science. About this time Dr. Hall re- 
ceived a call to the Chair of Biology at Haverford College, 
Pennsylvania. Accepting the call, he spent a semester at Har- 
vard in special preparation for his new position. The four years 



FOOTS HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 255 



spent at Haverford were years of the most intense activity. His 
teaching covered the whole field of Biology. Besides his work 
in Biology, he was Medical Director of the Athletic Work and 
the Medical Examiner at Haverford, and at the William Penn 
Charter School of Philadelphia. Anthropometric data collected in 
these examinations formed the basis of an extended research 
which occupied much of his vacation time at Haverford, and 
which was finally finished in Europe. In June, 1893, Dr. Hall 
resigned his position at Haverford, and with Mrs. Hall went to 
Leipzig, Germany, where both entered the University, Dr. Hall 
taking up a special line of work in Physiology with the great 
master, Carl Ludwig, while Mrs. Hall continued, under Leukhart, 
biological studies pursued for four years in Haverford. In May, 
1894, Dr. Hall completed a dissertation entitled "Die Resorption 
des Carnif erins, " based upon his work in Ludwig 's Laboratory. 
Having attended the clinics of Thiersch, Curschmann, Zweifel 
and Schoen, he came before the Medical Faculty as a candidate 
for a degree. Passing the examination successfully, he received 
in June, 1894, the degree of Doctor of Medicine from Leipzig 
University. He began at once, under the anthropologist Emil 
Schmidt, to complete the anthropological research begun four 
years before in Philadelphia. Choosing Anthropology as a major 
subject, and Zoology and Botany as minor subjects, he registered 
in the Department of Philosophy of Leipzig University as a can- 
didate for the Doctor's degree, all requirements of which were 
satisfied, and the degree of Master of Arts and Doctor of 
Philosophy granted, in Nov., 1894. The dissertation entitled 
"Changes in the Proportions of the Human Body During the 
Period of Growth" was written in English for publication in 
London. After this. Dr. Hall studied a year in Zurich, Switzer- 
land, where he conducted research work in nutrition, publishing 
at the end of that year two researches: (1) "Ueber die 
Darstellung eines kuenstlichen Futters"; (2) "Ueber das Ver- 
halten des Eisens im thierischen Organismus. " Having accepted 
a call to the Chair of Physiology in the Northwestern University 
Medical School, Dr. Hall came to Chicago and entered upon the 
duties of the position which he now occupies. He is eminently 
a college man, a man of great physical and mental strength, who 
is always ready to help students or his colleagues. Ch.: (a)

He was b. in that part of the ancient town of New Hartford, now a part of the

rising in the ranks until 1824, when he received his commission as Colonel of this 
regiment, from Eoger Wolcott, Governor of Ct. In 1814 he did active military 
duty as Captain of a Company in this Eegt., stationed at Sacketts Harbor, N. Y. 
He d. at his home in Canton, Sept., 1878, ae. 90 years and 6 months. He was a 
vigorous and resolute man, an enthusiast on military matters, and a great lover 
of fine horses. Throughout his life he disdained to ride in any vehicle, always 
preferring to ride horseback; hardly a day passed in his later years that he did not 
take a ride on his horse. At a Centennial celebration, held at Collinsville, in the 
town of Canton, in 1876, he led a large procession on horseback, and was in the 
saddle the greater part of the day. His wife was b. in Canton, and d. there in

gentleness of disposition, united with much force of character, which rendered 
him energetic and successful in business, as well as a man beloved in the com- 
munity. He possessed more than the average amount of native ability, while his

Elder Adoniram Foote was b. in Arlington, Vt., July 10, 1780. His youth was 
passed mostly in Washington Co., N. Y., where he m. Miss Nancy Doty, whose 
nephew, Duane Doty, a few years ago was Governor of Wisconsin. Soon after- 
wards he removed to Martinsburg, where the vigor of his life was expended, 
later he moved to Turin. His wife d. in June, 1815. In Jan., 1817, he m. Miss 
Emily Brainerd. A woman of intelligence, of great decision of character, and of 
positive piety and deep devotion, her worth to him was great and her influence 
upon him highly salutary, especially in leading him to embrace religion. He has 
also often referred with tearful emotion to the pious instructions of an aunt of 
his with whom he passed several of his early years, which he could never wholly 
forget, and which came to his mind with great freshness and force at the time he 
was converted. He survived his second wife a little less than eleven years. 
He was the father of a large family of 13 children, nine of whom lived to adult 
years. When he came into the county of Lewis that rich valley was but little 
known, and its resources were mostly undeveloped. He entered at once, and 
heartily, into every public enterprise calculated to promote the interests of the 
county. He received a military commission from Governor Tompkins, in 1812, 
and occupied several other offices of public trust from time to time. He was 
identified with those institutions whose motto speaks for the common brotherhood 
of mankind. He early connected himself with the anti-slavery movements of the 
country, as early as 1838, and in the Presidential contest of 1840 cast his vote for

Jamos G. Birney. He was independent in expression and faithful in prayer for 
the slave; yet lie was not rash, not fanatical; never joined those who der.ounced 
tht church and all other institutions for not moving so rapidly in this direction 
as he desired. He has often thanked God that he was permitted to live to hear 
freedom proclaimed throughout all the land. His Christian life in its outward 
manifestations was such as to bring honor to the name of Christ. He gave him- 
self into God's guidance at the time of a general religious revival in 1830-31. 
Mr. Foote at once joined himself to the Presbyterian Church, at Martinsburg, 
and became one of the working men of the church; he was ordained an Elder in 
that church, Oct. 12, 1832. He was many times member of Presbytery and Synod 
and was a delegate to the General Assembly that met at Philadelphia in 1843, 
and in the home work he was always diiigent and faithful. His place at the 
weekly prayer-meeting was seldom vacant. No day was allowed to pass withoub 
the observance of family prayer; and on this point he was very decided and 
strict, and several incidents are mentioned showing that he placed his service to 
God above his earthly cares and gains. He gave liberally for the support of the 
Gospel and for the great benevolent enterprises of the Christian church. Ch., all b.

292 FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

1465. ELIAL TODD FOOTE, (537, 172, 47, 13, 5,) b. Gill, Mass., May. 1, 
1796. Two years after his parents removed to Sherburne, N. Y., where he spent 
his boyhood. He was educated in the common school and under the tuition of 
Eev. W. M. Adams, and at Oxford Academy. He studied medicine at Sherburne 
with Dr. Guthrie and attended medical lectures in New York in 1814 and 1815. 
He was licensed by the Chenango County Medical Society, and later received the 
degree of M. D. He settled in Jamestown, Chautauqua Co., N. Y., in 1815, and was 
its first settled physician. He soon had an extensive practice, but the hardships 
and exposure incidental to practice in a new country led to attacks of asthma, 
and after a few years he gave up active practice, and turned his attention to 
business of a public nature. 

In 1819, at the age of 23, he was elected to the Legislature, representing the 
counties of Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Niagara. The county of Niagara then 
included what is now Erie County and Buffalo. During this session (1819-20) 
he was on the Canal Committee, an important one, for the State was then build- 
ing the Erie Canal. In 1826 he was again elected to the Legislature, and again 
in 1827, In 1822 he purchased from the Holland Land Company a reserved tract 
of land, on which is now built a large part of the city of Jamestown. This, with 
its valuable water power, was speedily improved, and the growth of the new 
village greatly promoted. Jamestown now (1907) has 30,000 inhabitants. He was 
active in public improvements, aiding them liberally by his means and influence. 
Four of the churches were built upon land donated by him for the purpose. 

In 1831, the nearest bank being at Buffalo, 90 miles distant, he secured the 
charter for the Chautauqua County Bank, resigning his position as director of the 
United States branch at Buffalo to accept the presidency of the new bank, which 
he resigned in 1835. He was one of the fifteen who met in 1829 to organize the 
Chautauqua County Temperance Society, of which he was for several years the 
president. He was for many years the President of the Chautauqua County Bible 
Society ,a life, member of all the prominent religious and benevolent societies, in 
which he took a lively interest and to which he gave liberally. In 1818 he was 
appointed Associate Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, which office he held 
for five years until 1823, when he was appointed first judge of the County of 
Chautauqua, which office he continued to hold under reappointment by various 
governors every five years for 20 years. On his retirement, in 1843, the grand 
jury and the bar, without respect to party, and associate judges, joined unanimously 
in passing resolutions, bearing high testimony to the ability, fidelity, and impar- 
tiality with which he had for so long discharged the honorable duties of his office, 
and expressive of their confidence and esteem. About this time (1843) he became 
strongly enlisted in the anti-slavery cause, and supported the Liberty ticket in 
1844. He removed to New Haven, Ct., in 1845, where he resumed the practice of 
medicine, and was in active practice there for some 20 years. 

He was fond of historical research and collected a large amount of historical 
matter concerning the early history of Chautauqua, which formed the basis of the 
valuable history of that county, written by Mr. A. W. Young. 

In 1827 he was elected a member of the Medical Society of the State of New 
York. He was also a member of the Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island 
State Medical Societies. In- 1827 he was elected an honorary member of the New 
York Historical Society. He was a corresponding member of the Buffalo Historical 
Society and of the Albany Lyceum of Natural History and the New England 
Genealogical and Historical Society. He was one of the founders and for many 
years, until his death, a director of the New Haven Colony Historical Society. 



FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 293 

Judge Foote m. at Jamestown, N. Y., Dec. 31, 1817, Anna Cheney, a native of 
Dover, Vt., and a dau. of Ebenezer Cheney, a Revolutionary soldier. His wife d. 
July 7, 1840, and he m. for his second wife, Amelia Stiles Leavitt, wid. of Rev. 
Charles Jenkins, of Greenfield, Mass., in 1841. She d. at New Haven in 1867. He 
was again m. in 1869, to Miss Emily Stockbridge, wid. of S. W. Allis. 

At the close of this biography of Judge Foote, it is fitting here to make some 
suitable acknowledgment for the great services which he rendered in his re- 
searches, and by his published and unpublished reminiscences concerning Sher- 
burne. In fact, it is but simple justice to say, that no other person has done 
more than he did to preserve the records of all that is of value and interest in the 
early history of this place. The writer has already appropriated much from the 
treasure trove of his historical collections, while much of value still remains. In 
a letter which has incidentally come to the hand of the writer. Judge Foote says: 
"I am disposed to have a sketch of West Hill Society and neighborhood published. 
In this way the efforts and settlement there of Major Dixon, our father, Judge 
Lynde, and others, will be preserved for future generations. ' ' How much, almost 
unconsciously, he was then contributing to that result, by inciting others to such 
labors! Judge Foote was a prominent member of the Masonic fraternity, and 
did not withdraw from that organization even under the great stress of the Anti- 
Masonic excitement of 1826-31, and was for several years Master of Mt. Moriah 
Lodge, at Jamestown. His early political associations were with the Loco Focos, 
or Democrats, but his later affiliations are well shown in an incident related by 
Judge Stephen Holden, of Sherburne, who was at the time a student at Yale 
College. He says, in a communication published in "The Sherburne News" of 
Sept. 7, 1889: "Early in 1856 I attended a meeting at New Haven, Ct., held to 
organize the Republican party for the presidential campaign. Dr. Elial T. Foote 
was one of the speakers, and added greatly to the enthusiasm of the meeting. 
The charge was then made that the then leaders of the Democrats were preach- 
ing a new doctrine on the question of slavery in the Territories. Dr. Foote, to 
vindicate his right to say what the original Democratic doctrine was, against 
the new lights in that party, among other things, said that he was a Democrat 
when they 'were mewling and puking in their nurses' arms! ' " He was a man of 
noble presence, and, as Judge Holden says, "He was a fine looking man, of large 
frame and a rather broad face." He was nearly six feet in height, very dark 
hair, blue eyes, a fine face and head, and a frank, kindly way which made him 
very popular. In the spring of 1820, while yet in the Legislature, he was nomi- 
nated unanimously by the district convention of the Western District of the State, 
as candidate for the State Senate. The nomination was a surprise to him, and he 
was strongly urged by influential members of the party to accept the same, but he 
felt constrained for personal and professional reasons to decline. Another can- 
didate was presented and elected by a large majority. 

Hon. Elial Todd Foote d. at New Haven, Ct., Nov. 17, 1877, in his 82nd year, 
and his remains were taken at his request to JamestowTi for interment, among the 
friends to whom he was so strongly attached.

Goshen, Ct.; m. June 4, 1829, Clarissa, dau. of Julius and Eunice Beaeh, of 
Goshen, Ct. She was b. Dec. 5, 1807, and d. June 5, 1886, at Footville, Wis. In 
1845 they removed to Rock Co., Wis., and settled at the point where the village 
now stands which bears his name. He was a man whose ability was recognized 
by his fellow citizens, who elected him to positions of trust and honor. 
In 1847 he was made a member of the Constitutional Convention, and from then 
until 1869 he held various public offices. He was repeatedly a member of the 
Wis. Legislature and of the Senate; a trustee of the State Hospital for the 
Insane; a director of the Beloit and Madison Railroad and of the Central Bank of 
Wis. He was also one of the factors in building the Evansville Seminary, and 
for many years was President of its board of trustees. He removed to La Cygne, 
Kas., in 1869, and remained there seven years, being the first Mayor of that city. 
Of him it was said at his death: "He had held many positions of trust, winning 
for himself the high esteem of all who knew him. He was a man of good ability, 
energetic in the discharge of duty, and honest — a man of iron will and great 
force of character. His intellect was of a high order, his judgment of men and 
things acute and correct. His religious life was characterized by intense interest 
in the Master's service, and in spite of the things which enter into man's life to 
create discord he kept faith to the end." He d. Dec. 21, 1885, at Footville, 
Wis.

1806; m. June 22, 1828, Caroline, dau. of Bethuel and Elizabeth Flagg, of Cheshire, 
Ct. She was b. Apr. 29, 1804; d. Nov. 4, 1838; m. 2nd, Jan. 27, 1842, Caroline 
Augusta (his second cousin), dau. of Augustus Russell and Caroline Mary (Leffing- 
well) Street, of New Haven, Ct. She was b. Aug. 24, 1816; d. Aug. 27, 1863. 

He was educated at the old Episcopal Academy at Cheshire, Ct. He had for 
a classmate Gideon Wells, afterwards Secretary of the Navy, and went imme- 
diately to sea under old Admiral Gregory. Entered the Navy in 1822 as acting 
midshipman, became passed midshipman in 1827, and Lieutenant in 1830. In 
1833 he was Log Lieutenant of the Mediterannean Squadron and in 1838 circum- 
navigated the globe as First Lieutenant of the sloop of war "John Adams," par- 
ticipating in the attack on the pirates of Sumatra. During the cruise of the 
"Cumberland" he not only induced the crew to forego the use of spirits, but 
personally superintended their religious instruction, delivering an extemporary 
sermon every Sunday. In 1848, in command of the brig "Perry" off the African 
coast, engaged for two and one-half years in suppressing the slave trade. In 
command of the sloop "Portsmouth," supported by the "Sevant, " he attacked 
the Chinese forts at Canton, massive granite structures, mounting 176 guns and 
garrisoned by 5,000 men, breaching the largest and strongest, and landing with a 
force of 280 sailors and marines, carried the work by storm. 

At the beginning of the Civil War, 1861, Commander Foote was executive 
ofB.cer at Brooklyn Navy Yard. In July he was commissioned Captain, in Sept. he 
was appointed Captain, in Sept. was appointed Flag Officer of the flotilla fitting out 
in western waters. On Feb. 4, 1862, sailed from Cairo with a fleet of seven g^un- 
boats, of which four were iron-clad, to attack Fort Henry on the Tennessee 
Eiver. He attacked the fort on the 6th without waiting for the arrival of the 
land forces under Gen. Grant, and in one hour compelled its surrender. On the 
14th attacked Fort Donelson, on the Cumberland river. The action was sustained 
with great vigor on both sides for one and a quarter hours, when the fleet had to 
haul off because two gunboats had their steering apparatus shot away and were 
unmanageable. Capt. Foote was severely wounded in the ankle, his ship, the "St. 
Louis, ' ' was struck 61 times, but he proceeded down the Mississippi and com- 
menced the siege of Island No. Ten, which he reduced. In July, 1862, he was 
appointed Rear Admiral, and in May, 1863, was ordered to the command of the 
South Atlantic Squadron. While preparing to leave New York City for Charles- 
ton he died. He was the author of "Abrua and the American Flag," 1854, 
"Letters on Japan," 1857. 

Admiral Foote 's sword is preserved as a sacred relic of the New Haven 
Historical Society. On the gold scabbard is the following inscription: "Presented 
by the citizens of Brooklyn to Flag Officer Andrew H. Foote as a testimonial of 
their high personal regard of their appreciation of his eminent professional char- 
acter, distinguished public service and moral influence in a long course of active 
duty, and especially of his efficiency in suppressing the slave trade on the coast 
of Africa; his gallant conduct in the destruction of the barrier forts in China;

N. Y., Feb. 11, 1816; m. Sept. 24, 1839, Mary, dau. of Hon. Amos and Mary 
(Owen) Crocker, of Hamilton, N. Y. She was b. May 12, 1819, and d. Jan. 8, 
1907. He was a prominent man in Central New York, and during the Civil War 
was very active in the raising and organization of regiments in that portion of 
the State. He was the first Central New Yorker to subscribe for Government 
Bonds, and in every way an ardent patriot. Was State Senator in 1858-59; 
Auditor of the New York City Post Office under Postmaster Thomas L. James; 
was Acting Postmaster during Mr. James' absence in Europe. Mr. Foote 's system 
of rules and regulations for the reorganization and re-formation of that office have 
since been adopted by the United States Post Office Department in the large 
post offices in the United States. 

On Saturday night, Apr. 15, 1905, just before the midnight hour, 
Hon. John J. Foote, of Belvidere, 111., gave heed to the final 
summons, and folding his weary arms in token of his sub- 
mission, passed to the great beyond. Long had his death been expected, 
for the feebleness of old age was upon him, and the strenuousness of a well spent 
life had left its mark upon the forces which for years had been the admiration of 
men. Eighty-nine years had been his life allotment, while into it had been 
crowded more of the important things which are included in the making of the 
history of a nation than ordinarily falls to the lot of man. Since the war of 
1812 little of importance has come to this continent to which he was not an 
eye witness, and in which he did not participate. 

Born in Hamilton, N. Y., in Feb., 1816, he there laid the foundations of his 
life, to which men do not point with scorn, but direct attention to as worthy of 
emulation. During the stirring times of the nation, when the cry for a division 
of this government was heard, when men were carried outside the pale of reason 
by their passion and love for gain, his voice was heard in the gatherings of the 
wise, upholding the government, planning for the maintenance of her honor, and 
struggling for the outcome, which should leave the union undivided. The guns of 
Fort Sumpter aroused in him that spirit which had marked his ancestors for more 
than two centuries, and crystalized into action that power and energy which made 
him sought after in the councils of the nation. 

The long and noble ancestry back of this man, fruitful in deeds accomplished, 
good impressions made upon the public life, and in the assisting of the settlement 
of questions which has greatly affected the history of our country, could not help 
but accurately foreshadow the life just closed. From 1633 the line is unbroken, 
and is closely identified with the stirring and important events of both England 
and America. This man's family and himself have become prominent figures in 
the national life of two continents. John J. Foote began life with the history of

a good name., He could proudly point to men whose record was one of fidelity, 
the maintenance of great principles, and in the crises of nation's history, were 
willing to give their all for that nation's integrity and welfare. 

His educational training was thorough, and though he did not pursue a full 
classical course, later in life he received his degree from Madison — now Colgate 
University. In his early career he took an active part in politics as a member of 
the Whig party, and by reason of his personal popularity and political sagacity 
was many times elected to various local offices, even when his party was largely in 
the minority. He counted as his friends the leaders of the Eepublican party, and 
was prominently identified with such men as Eoscoe Conklin and Henry Clay. 

In 1857 he was elected a member of the first Eepublican Legislature in New 
York, and served as a member of the Senate with such distinguished colleagues 
as William A. Wheeler and General Francis B. Spinola. He was the introducer 
and champion of the Personal Liberty Bill, one of the most famous measures pro- 
posed in New York prior to the war, and was designed to secure for the negroes 
additional rights and privileges. 

When the war broke out, he gained additional prominence by doing all in his 
power to suppress the rebellion. When Fort Sumter was fired upon, he was called 
into a conference in New York City with Thurlow Weed, Governor Morgan, 
General Wool and others to consider the situation, and devise means for putting 
New York on a war footing. The meeting was held on Saturday night, and the 
Legislature was to adjourn on the following Monday. It was imperative for the 
proposed adjournment to be postponed, and Mr. Foote was delegated to go to 
Albany and see that the adjournment resolution was rescinded. The history of 
his work in that connection is interesting reading. 

While he was seeking to induce the Eepublicans to carry ovit the pledge out- 
lined by the party leaders in New York, Frances B. Spinola, with whom he had 
often crossed swords in politics, was an interested listener. Spinola finally blurted 
out, "Foote, you Eepublicans are a pack of cowards. I am a Democrat, but I 
■ propose to vote for the reconsideration of the adjournment resolution, and for 
the three million dollar appropriation as you proprosed, and more than that, I will 
raise a regiment to go down South and lick the rebels." The four years of 
national turmoil furnishes many records of the toil and labor of Mr. Foote in 
behalf of the Union cause. 

In 1865, his health having become seriously impaired, he sold out his business 
in Hamilton, and removed with his family to Belvidere, 111., where he settled on 
a large farm, giving attention mainly to agricultural pursuits. Shortly after Mr. 
James was made postmaster in New York by President Grant, Mr. Foote was 
tendered the important office of auditor, a position which had been newly created. 
Mr. Foote accepted the position with the understanding that as soon as he had 
systematized the financial affairs of the post office he should be allowed to retire. 
The task proved much greater than he had expected. Mr. Foote devoted the next 
three years of his life to that work. His work there has passed into history, 
every act of which in his official capacity, he credit brought to himself and profit 
to the government which he represented. Under his administration, abuses were 
corrected, the rights of the government preserved, and systems adopted for use 
which for years afterward placed that office at the very head of the postal depart- 
ment in this country. More than once was he called upon to settle questions which 
involved the maintaining his integrity and preserving those principles which had 
so distinguished his past life. To his superiors he would answer, "Very well, I 
have sworn to enforce these rules, and I shall do so. It is in your power to change 



331 FOOTE HISTOEY AND GENEALOGY 



the rules, but it is not in your power to otherwise change my obligations," was 
the keynote of his admiration. Upon his return to Belvidere, 111., he turned his atten- 
tion again to private affairs, becoming interested in the various municipal, bank- 
ing and other enterprises, and proved a skillful and able financier. Only in minor 
offices did he again enter politics, and then only because he was practically the 
unanimous choice of his fellow citizens. 

Such are some of the side lights of the life which has so recently ended. 
Some of the guide posts, which point not so much to a mere existence, as to a 
living tangible reality, a power that was felt, and an influence which knows no 
dissolution. His was the type of citizenship which increases the strength of the 
nation and makes her people invincible in war and progressive in times of peace; 
a type of citizenship injected into municipal and social life, creating aspirations 
for the things which tell for good, and which will bring no discredit upon their 
promoters when they shall pass from the stage of action. 

For some years Mr. Foote lived in retirement at his home on Lincoln Ave., 
Belvidere, 111. His decline was gradual, but very marked for many months. 
Surrounded by his loved one and the descendants of those who were in his early 
life associated with his public career, the ministration of love and good will has 
been his heritage.

(Burling) Hallock, of Milton, N. Y. Mrs. Foote was b. at Milton-on-the-Hudson, 
N. Y., Nov. 19, 1847, where her father's family had lived on the same land since 
the grant from Queen Anne to Capt. Bond, from whom the Hallocks bought their 
tract when it was a forest wilderness. Her parents and grandparents on both 
sides were of English Quaker descent. She was educated at Poughkeepsie Female 
Collegiate Seminary. She early showed indications of a talent for drawing, and 
in her 17th year was sent to New York to the School of Design in Cooper Insti- 
tute. She spent three winters in New York, at Cooper Institute, and one winter 
in the studio of Samuel Frost Johnson, studying color. She also received special 
instruction in design from Dr. William Rimmer, who taught design and anatomy 
at the Cooper Institute; and in drawing on wood from W. J. Linton, the English 
artist. Her life was exceedingly simple, sheltered and quiet until her marriage 
of Feb. 9, 1876, with Arthur De Wint Foote, a civil engineer, who at the time of 
her marriage was in charge of mining work in California. When her husband's 

(22) 



338 FOOTE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

business made it necessary for her to travel extensively, living or stopping at New 
Alma.len and Santa Cruz, Cal., Leadville, Colo., and other places, amid scenes very 
unlike those of her early home, the experience thus gained she has utilized with 
great judgment and rare literary ability. After Bret Harte, no one else has given 
more vivid and effective delineation of the wilder and rougher phases of Western 
life. Besides "The Led Horse Claim," ".John Bodewin's Testimony," "The Last 
Assembly Ball," "In Exile and Other Stories," "The Chosen Valley," "Coeur 
d' Alene, " "The Cup of Trembling and Other Stories," she has published sundry 
short stories. Her too infrequent productions in the "Century" and other 
magazines are eagerly noted by discerning readers, who expect from her a 
higher combination of matter and treatment than they usually find elsewhere. 
She has illustrated her own tales, and various books and articles, always with 
point and force. She has also illustrated Longfellow's "Hanging of the Crane," 
"Skeleton in Armor," Whittier's "Mabel Martin," Hawthorne's "Scarlet 
Letter." Mr. Foote entered Class of 1869 Sheffield Scientific School, but left in 
the second year because of trouble with his eyes. He is a member of Am. Ass. 
C. E., and has spent most of his life as superintendent of various mines; has con- 
tributed articles to mining periodicals, etc.

Mar. 30, 1811, at Clean, N. Y.; was graduated from Oberlin College in 1840. He 
studied two years in Fairfield Medical School with a view to Foreign Missionary 
work. He was ordained to the ministry in 1840, and Sept. 10, 1840, he m. Clarissa 
C. Clark. He held pastorates to churches in Maume, O., Bergen, N. Y., Mt. 
Clemens, Mich., and White Lake, Mich. He served as Chaplain of the Detroit 
House of Correction for four years, 1869-73. He was candidate for Vice-President 
of the Gerrit Smith Liberty Party, before its consolidation with the Free-Soil 
Party. He was a candidate for Governor of Michigan on the ticket of the 
American Party in 1882. In 1854 he moved to Detroit, Mich., and was the agent 
for the Refuge Home Society, whose object was to provide homes for escaped 
slaves in Canada, which position he occupied until the war made it unnecessary 
for the slaves to leave the country over which floated the Stars and Stripes in 
order to be a free man. 

He was a prominent actor in the rescue at Syracuse, N. Y., of an escaped 
slave, named Jerry, from the U. S. Marshal, which resulted in a broken arm for 
one of the deputies and the hurried departure of the others out of a second story 
window into the Erie Canal, and Jerry's safe arrival in Canada. 

After the war he became the agent for the Freedman's Aid Society, and in 
that capacity did much able work. From the very inception of the Prohibition 
Party, Mr. Foote was one of its active spirits, and his temperance work with 
tongue and pen was earnest and unceasing. He devoted much time to mission 
work during the last 18 years of his life, and was at one time chaplain of the 
Seaman's Bethel. Mrs. Foote d. July 3, 1857, and was buried at White Lake, 
Mich. He m. 2nd, Aug. 3, 1858, Hannah E. Merritt, of Plymouth,
