A genealogy usually has little of interest to those whose names do not appear 
in it; this is likely to be no exception; and, probably, the interest of the majority 
will be only in what relates to their individual families, or their line of descent. 
It has been prepared especially for the descendants of the Honorable Francis 
Fulham of Weston, Massachusetts, born at Fulham, a parish of London, England; 
and, in conformity to the method of its designer, it contains all that is known 
of him and his ancestry; and what has been learned of his progeny, of whatever 
name, that can interest the family in general or the individuals composing it. 
The facts as to past generations have been gathered from trustworthy sources; 
and what relates to those now or lately living is from their own narration, or 
from narratives of relatives or familiar friends. The substance of what has 
been furnished by all is inserted, without intent to glorify any, and suppressing 
nothing that can contribute to a general knowledge of the history and character- 
istics of the family; that all may find what is of interest to them. 

In 1845 the Author's father began to record facts as to the family, stored in his 
marvelous memory from childhood. Beginning with the narratives of his grand- 
father Timothy Fulham, born in Weston, and 16 years old when Francis Fulham 
died, he added what afterwards was acquired, intending to publish all. After 
his death, the manuscript came to the Author, who, to save from oblivion that 
of which there was no other record, and finish the undertaking according to 
his father's wish, took up the work, and now presents the result to his kindred. 

The assembling of names and dates to show a line of descent from an early pro- 
genitor can benefit no one, unless it be shown that qualities worthy of emulation 
in him have appeared in later generations, and may become an incentive to meri- 
torious achievement in the present. No attempt has been made to demonstrate 
the existence of such qualities, or to withhold knowledge of their opposites here; 
and no general search has been made for family characteristics, peculiar or dis- 
tinctive; but individual traits are illustrated or described; and an attentive 
perusal will discover here physical and mental qualities, which appear so often, 
and in so many branches of the family, related only through remote common 
ancestors, as to illustrate the fact of heredity, and furnish proof of identity in 
a line of descent, where the evidence is incomplete, because limited to similarity 
in names, ages, and related circumstances, without direct record evidence or 
tradition as to the parentage, or the date or place of birth of one in that line. 

Francis Fulham was a large and a very powerful man. At the age of 14, he 
was in the Province of Massachusetts Bay, without money, relatives, friends, or 
the means of obtaining an education; but he became the most prominent man of 
the town in which he lived; he held many offices of honor and trust; and, finally, 
he was appointed by the Governor and Council to the bench of a court of record; 
a position which he held for 36 consecutive years, during the last 14 of which 
he was Chief Justice; and which he resigned at the age of 85, having exercised

EXPLANATIONS 

The arrangement of the Genealogy places the Fulhams first, followed in alpha- 
betical order, by families springing from or connected by marriage with them. 

Roman numeral in parenthesis, before a name in capitals, indicates the genera- 
tion of the person named, in descent from "(I.) FRANCIS FULHAM," or from 
the first known ancestor of the person whose name is capitalized. 

Arabic numerals in parenthesis, next after a surname, refer to that number 
in a series at the left of a page, at the top of which that surname is found. 

Where a date in parenthesis is followed by a later date, the dates in both 
Old and New Style are given. Dates earlier than Sep. 2, 1752, unless in quota- 
tion marks, have been conformed to New Style. 

A surname in parenthesis is that of a woman before her marriage. 

Names of brothers and sisters are in the same kind of type; and, where each 
has a line or more, the numerals showing their order are in a perpendicular line. 

Husbands and wives, after the first, with names in smaller letters, had no 
children. Names without serial numbers were added after the numbering. 

The names of all having Fulham blood will be found in the Index.

THE FULHAM GENEALOGY 



Like many surnames assumed by men of a common stock to distinguish them 
from others, Fulham is presumed to be the name of the place where the head 
of the family lived. It is not known when this became a family name, but the 
manor of Fulham is one of the oldest in England. Two other places bearing 
the name appear on the map of Great Britain: one is in the southern part of 
Norfolk County; the other, Fulham House, in Womersley, near Pontefract, 
about a mile from Womersley Station, on a main road named Fulham Lane, 
with meadows called Fulham Ings, appears once to have been a place of some 
importance, from the following entry in the Elizabethan Act Book for the 
Deanery of Pontefract, in the York Probate Registry: "1572-3 Jan, 18, Then 
issued probate of the will of George Thompson nup de ffulham." 

The name is conjectured to be a modification of the Saxon "Fullonham," 
home of fowls, originally given to a tract of about eleven square miles, on the 
north bank of the Thames, five and a half miles south-west from St. Paul's 
Church, London, whose many groves were the home of birds. 

Fulham is a parish, having an old palace of the Bishop of London, and a 
manor house, probably in use before the Xorman Conquest. It was granted 
about A. D. 631, by the name "Fulanham," to Erkenwald, Bishop of London and 
his successors, by Tyrhtilus, Bishop of Hereford, with the consent of Sigehard, 
King of the East Saxons, and Coenred, King of the Murcians; and it has re- 
mained ever since an appendange of the see.* 

The only known genealogy of the Fulhams, before this, is in "Collectania 
Topographica et Genealogiea," published by the Society of Antiquaries at West- 
minster in 1834; viz.: "Pedigree of the Fulham Family, of Compton, near 
Guildford in Surrey;" from which— p. 17, it appears that this family, "Now 
extinct in the male line," was "Chiefly devoted to the Church of England, in 
which they possessed many livings and other preferments." 

(a) "John Fulham of Hope under Dynmo/re, co. Heref.," in the sixteenth 
century, was the progenitor of this family, and is the only one of his generation 
mentioned in the "Pedigree." 

(b) Edward Fulham, son of John Fulham of Hope fa), was Surveyor of West- 
minster Abbey; and is the only one of his generation mentioned. 

(c) Edward Fulham, D. D., son of Edward the Surveyor (b), and the only 
one of his generation mentioned, was born in 1604, and died Dec. 9, 1694, aet. 
90. He was "Proctor of the University of Oxford, 1639; Rector of Wotton near 
Oxford, 1641; installed 12 July 1660 first Canon of Windsor; 1 August, created

D. D., at Oxford, and appointed Rector of West Ildesley, Burk, and Rector of 
Hampton Poyle, Ox., and Vicar of Bray, and Rector of the Prebendaries of 
Winchester. In 1667 he purchased the manor of Compton Bastbury." He mar- 
ried Margaret, daughter of Sir Robert Clarke, Knt. of Oxfordshire, by whom 
he had four sons, Edward (d), George (e), Samuel (f), and John (g). In 
N. E. Hist. & Gen. Register, Vol. 44, page 302, occurs this: "John (Bancroft) 
Bishop of Oxford in his will 31 August 1639, proved 5 June 1641, enjoins that 
his body shall be buried in Cuddesdon Chancel and desires his chaplains Mr. 
Fulham or Mr. Washington to preach in Cuddesdon Church, and 'to make such 
mention of me as may tend to God's glory — .' Evelyn, 80, (P. P. C.)." This 
Chaplain Fulham is Edward Fulham, D. D., Proctor of Oxford University (c), 

(d) Edward Fulham, first son of the Proctor (c), "d. 6 Feb. 1688," was 
"Rector of West Ildesley, Prebendary of Wellington in the Church of Litch- 
field, 1673. — See Manning and Bray's History of Surrey, vol. ii, p. 5." He "mar. 

daur, of Sir John Stonehouse, of Oxfordshire, Bart." No children are 

mentioned. 

(e) George Fulham, D. D., "d. 23 Nov. 1702," second son of the Proctor (c), 
was "Instituted Rector of Compton in 1684; Prebendary of Winchester in 1692, 
and Rector of St, Mary, Southampton; 1700 Archdeacon of Winchester. He was 
Fellow of Magdalene College, Oxford; and was one of those who stoutly resisted 
the intention of King James the Second to introduce a Roman Catholic as head 
of that College: but I suppose was expelled, and in the Revolution, when William 
the Third was King, it is probable that he had a stall given him in that Cathe- 
dral as a recompense for what he had lost at the College." He married 
Katherine "One of the three daughters of George Evelyn, the son and heir- 
apparent of George Evelyn Esq. of Wotton, the latter being the elder brother 
of the so much celebrated John Evelyn, the publication of whose memoirs from 
his own MSS. has been so well received by the public. George Evelyn, her 
father, died in his father's lifetime, leaving by his wife three daughters. The 
male branch being likely to fail, leaving only daughters, George Evelyn the 
father made a new settlement of the Wotton estate in favor of a younger 
brother, the celebrated John Evelyn, subject to the payment of about 5000 1 
to each of these three daughters, . . . which money was paid on John Evelyn 
coming into possession of the Wotton estate under the new limitation. — See 
Evelyn's Memoirs, vol. ii, p. 65, 4to edit. Mrs. Fulham was buried in Winchester 
Cathedral, where there is a tablet erected to her memory — ." He had one child 
"George died 6 March 1710 aged 2 months," and "Buried in Winchester Cathe- 
dral by the side of his mother." 

(f) Samuel Fulham, third son of the Proctor (c), died January 1674. He was 
"A Leghorn merchant." 

(g) John Fulham, M. P., fourth son of the Proctor (c), "died 25 April 1726, 
aet. 64." He was "Appointed Recorder of Guildford (near Compton in Surrey) 
4th Oct. 1703; was M. P. for Haslemere in 1705 and 1707; this was probably 
owing to his friendship with the Molyneaux family, who were at that time 
Patrons of this Borough." The following extract from "Records of Town Coun- 



FULHA^I. T 

cil" of Guildford, is from "The Histories and Antiquities of Surrey," printed 
in London 1804, Vol. 1, p. 40: "King James I. by his Letters patent dated at 
Hatfield, 30 Aug. Ao. regni lo. in which he granted to this Corporation the Com- 
mission of the Peace, impowered them likewise to elect annually, on the day 
on which the Mayor should be elected, some one person learned in the Laws 
to be of council with the Mayor and approved men in matters relating to the Cor- 
poration; in consequence whereof the following Gentlemen have been Appointed 
to that office since the date of this Charter, viz. ... 2 Ann 1703 John Fulham, 
Esq. of Compton; resigned." The resignation was occasioned by his becoming 
Recorder of Guildford. He "married 19 May, 1687, Anne dau. of Robt. Waith," 
buried at Compton "23 Oct. 1720," by whom he had two sons, Edward (h) and 
John (i); and two daughters, Mary (j) and one whose name is not given (k). 

(h) Edward Fulham, first son of John Fulham, M. P. (g), "born January 
1694, died unmarried 1768, aet. 75." 

(i) John Fulham, second son of John Fulham, M. P. (g), "b. 1697; died 13 
July 1777, aet. 80"; was "Instituted Rector of Compton 1722 and Merrow in 
1736, to the latter of which he was presented by Thomas Lord Onslow the 
patron. In 1746 he was appointed Prebendary of Heathfield in the cathedral of 
Chichester, and Archdeacon of Landaff, in 1750 one of the Canons of Windsor, 
having been Chaplain to Arthur Onslow, Esq. Speaker of the House of Com- 
mons; he was Rector of Compton 55 years." He married "1, Eliz. da. of Wicks 
relict of Sir Dudley cullum, Bt. she died 22 Jan. 1737"; and he married "2, 
Sarah, dau. of Charles Greene Esq. grdd. Thos. Greene Bp. of Ely; d. 3, Jan. 
1789"; by whom he had four sons, "Edward, d. inf. 1745-6; Thomas, d. inf. 
1747"; John (1) and Edward (m) ; and one daughter Katherine (n). 

(j) Mary Fulham daughter of John P\ilham, M. P. (g), "married John Turner 
tradesman of Guildford," and had two sons John Turner and George Fulham 
Turner; and "A daughter died at an early age before she left school." "George 

Fulham Turner mar. 1st daughter of Richard Clifton of Guildford, Esq; 

2nd daughter of Hilton of ." In Compton Church is an inscription 

to "Mary, wife of Mr. Fulham Turner, of Guildford, and daughter of Mr, 
William Wyatt, of Felpham, Sussex. She died Oct. 29, 1790, aged 53 years. — 
Manning and Bray's History of Surrey, vol. ii, p. 13." 

(k) A dau. of John Fulham, M. P. (g), "mar. Mr. Mariat, a medical gent, of 
Guildford, who by the interest of the Onslow family obtained a Land-waiter's 
place in the Custom House London." 

(1) John Fulham, A. M., third son of Archdeacon John Fulham, Rector of 
Compton (i), was educated at Corpus Christi College in Cambridge; 14 April 
1768 "Instituted Rector of Coddingsfold in Goldemere, to which he was presented 
by his great uncle, Dr. Thomas Greene, Dean of Salisbury, to which Deanery 
this presentation and that of St. Nicholas Guildford belonged. He was also 
Chaplain in Ordinary to the King." He "died of the small pox at Chelsea, 14 
Nov. 1772, in the 29th year of his age." 

(m) Edward Fulham, M. A., fourth son of Archdeacon John Fulham, Rector 
of Compton (1), is said in "Topographical History of Surrey" to have been 



8 fulha:\i. 

"Inst, the 3d of April 1777" Rector of Loseley Chapel. He was "In 1777 insti- 
tuted Rector of St. Nicholas, Guildford, to which he was presented by his grand 
uncle Dr. Greene, Dean of Salisbury, on the death of Dr. Gilbert. He also in- 
herited the family estate at Compton, where he resided and died unmarried," 
"1 June 1832, aet. 84." "In the ornamentation and improving of which he took 
great delight, and had made it a much admired situation." 

(n) Katharine Fulham, dau. of John Fulham (i) married Thomas Parsons. 

In "County Genealogies Pedigrees of Surrey, England," — p. 78, it is said: 
"Elizabeth Evelyn, daughter of George and Mary, grand-daughter of Richard 
and Eleanor married Rev. Dr. Fulham." Elizabeth, apparently w^as a daughter 
of George Evelyn, Senior of Wotton, and aunt of Katharine Evelyn, who married 
George Fulham, D. D. (ej ; and her husband. Dr. Fulham (o), was unknown 
to W. Bray, author of the "Pedigree of the Family of Fulham of Compton, 
Surrey." 

The author of the "Pedigree" says: "The earliest knowledge that I have of 
them does not begin before the time of James the First, but from that time I 
believe it to be perfectly complete." The reign of James the First began in 1603, 
the year before Edward Fulham, D. D., Proctor of the University of Oxford, was 
born. This Edward (c) had four sons, and it is not to be presumed that his 
father the Surveyor of Westminster Abbey, and his grandfather John Fulham 
of Hope under Dynmore, had only one son each; the probability is that both the 
father and the grandfather had other sons. W. Bray had no knowledge of "Rev. 
Dr. Fulham" (o), w^ho married Elizabeth Evelyn; w^hich shows that his knowl- 
edge of the family during the period mentioned was not "Perfectly complete." 

Members of the family that came to America from Ireland, spelling the name 
"Fulham," have a tradition that their ancestors went from England. Their 
features indicate their English descent, and all such must have sprung from 
those bearing the name of Fulham on the Thames. Irish spelling their name 
"Fullam" are evidently of another stock, having no tradition of an English 
extraction. 

During the plague of 1CG5, by which more than one-third of the inhabitants of 
London perished; and the fire of 1666, in which five-sixths of the city was de- 
stroyed, it is said that many ancient records of London and vicinity were either 
burned to prevent infection; removed for safety; or consumed in the final con- 
flagration. Whatever the cause, no Parish Records of an earlier date than 1675 
remain at Fulham; and the attempt to trace backwards the lineage of Francis 
Fulham, the immigrant to New England, has been fruitless. 

It is the duty of a Proctor to preserve order among the students of a college 
or university. Proctor Fulham of Oxford lived to the age of ninety years, and 
if he had the physical strength of either of the first three men that bore the 
name in New England, he was well fitted for the undertaking. The writer of the 
"Pedigree" disclaims knowledge of the family before the birth of Proctor Ful- 
ham; his knowledge since then is shown to be defective; his research, appar- 
ently, was made for the purpose of preparing an article for a book containing 
similar productions as to families supposed to be extinct in the male line in 



England; and Francis Fulham probably descended from a brother of Proctor 
Pulham or one of the Proctor's sons, the record of his descent having been de- 
stroyed, and never coming to the knowledge of the author of the "Pedigree." 

The family name has undergone strange transformation here. From "Ful- 
ham," the name of the place of its origin, the spelling has been varied in every 
way possible to the alphabet. The common inclination of the English to silence 
the aspirate of unaccented syllables, in speaking, and the tendency of those 
unacquainted with a name to spell it as they hear it pronounced, would lead 
naturally to the substitution of "1" for "h" in Fulham when written by one to 
whom the name was new, in early times; and it never has been common in 
America. The muster rolls of eighteenth century wars show seven varieties, 
thus: Fulham, Fullham, Fullam, Fullem, Fullim, Fullom, and Fullum, appar- 
ently written as the name was made to sound in the ears of different enlisting 
officers, the name of the same person being differently spelled in unconnected 
rolls; and the name of the immigrant had four spellings in records of his official 
acts. Rev. Pension Certificates probably would have the spelling found in rolls 
furnishing the evidence on which they were granted; this would lead the pen- 
sioner to spell the name as written in his certificate, at the semi-annual draw- 
ing; and, for consistency, in all other writings; and the spelling of fathers, 
adopted by their children, would account for the three forms now used by those 
bearing the name. 

In the records of Watertown, Ms., and those of Weston after it became a 
separate township, the name is generally written "Fullam." The records of 
marriages, births, and deaths in the Town Clerk's office of Weston mention two 
marriages in the family by "Wm. Williams minister of ye Gospel in sd. Weston"; 
one "Ye 28th Day of Febr. 1715-16," and one "Ye 30th Day of January 1717," in 
which the name is written "Fullam"; but the first record there of a marriage 
by "Francis Fulham Esq." on "The 9th day of April 1719," has the spelling 
Fulham, of which the parson seems to have taken notice, for, the next three 
marriages in the family by Wm. Williams, "Sarah Fulham" and "Mary Fulham," 
"May 30, 1721"; and the second marriage of "Francis Fulham Esq." "Octr. 1st, 
1724"; show the original spelling "Fulham," by him, as do all his subsequent 
records. The records of proceedings of the Great and General Court, of which 
he was 14 times a member, frequently have the name "Fullam"; but, with one 
exception, the official lists of Representatives have it "Fulham." In the records 
of the court of which he was a Judge the name is spelled in two ways; but in the 
records of his appointments to that office by the Governor and Council, it is always 
written "Fulham." In the Parish Records of Weston ch. between 1709 and 
1757, the name is always Fulham; and these include all the births, marriages, 
and deaths in the family at Weston during that period, the last being the 
christening of "Lucy Daughr. of Elisha and Sarah Fulham." And in "Bond's 
Genealogies of . . . Weston" the name appears only as "Fulham." 

On the death of his only son, Jacob, Judge Fulham took Jacob's eldest son 
Francis, then 8 years old, into his own family, where he lived until his mar- 
riage fifteen years after. Timothy, eldest son of Francis 2d, and born in Weston, 



1(1 FUUiAM. 

was 16 years old when his ^.grandfather. Judge Fulham died; and had oppor- 
tunity to leara what was most important in the history of this ancestor. Sewall, 
the Author's father, and grandson of Timothy, during several years of his child- 
hood, was a member of this grandfather's family, and knew him intimately 
for thirty years; and from this association, from his grandfather Josiah Harris 
(150), also a gr.grandson of Judge Fulham, Oliver Whitney of Cavendish, Vt., 
a Mrs. Beverstock, and from other people, that knew Judge Fulham in their 
youth, Sewall gathered and recorded the most credible information, possibly to 
be had in unwritten form, of his ancestors through five generations, including 
Judge Francis Fulham. Sewall, like those ancestors, possessed a remarkable 
memory, which, with him, seemed never to lose any fact worth preserving; and, 
besides what is contained in his records, through years of the most intimate 
association, he communicated to his son, the Author, much that, it is hoped, 
will prove of interest to the descendants of Judge Francis Fulham, as to the 
early generations of the Fulhams in America. 

The first known record of a Fulham in America is contained in "The Original 
Lists," of immigrants &c., published at London, 1874, p. 195, where appears, 
among "Names of the Dead in Virginia ... At Elizabeth City (feb. 16, 1623), 
Thomas Fulham." It is not supposed that any descendant of this Thomas 
Fulham is living here; and it is presumed that all the family of direct English 
descent, now in America, have sprung from 

THE HONORABLE FRANCIS FULHAM. 
(The name also spelled Fullam and Fullum in America), 

1 (I.) FRANCIS FULHAM, from London, England, died in Weston, Ms., Jan. 
15, 1758, in his 88th year. No record of his nativity, made in his lifetime, is 
known. The Author's father, in writing of this ancestor five generations before 
him says: "Francis Fulham was born at Fulham's Place near London, England, 
in the year 1669; when about fourteen years old he was sent to America by his 
brothers — his father being dead — to be educated at Harvard College; the man 
with whom he was intrusted kept the money (lOOL Sterling) sent to pay the 
expense of his education." Substantially the same account is current in Weston, 
but there, the sum of money is said to have been 500L. Either amount at 
that time would have been abundant for the purpose, and the inference is that 
the family was wealthy. 

No "Fulham's Place near London" is known, but the suburb Fulham, five and 
a half miles south-west from St. Paul's Church, is near Westminster Abbey; and 
Edward Fulham (b). Surveyor of the Abbey, may have had another son, a 
gi'andson, or a descendant of a later generation, not known to the author of the 
"Pedigree," living at Fulham when Francis was born, who, like those named 
in the Pedigree, also descended from the Surveyor, was "Devoted to the Church 
of England," and was the father of Francis, a younger son, whose brothers were 
clergymen. 

This is made more probable by the circumstance that the fund for the educa- 
tion of Francis was the joint contribution of "his brothers." Under the Law 



FULHAM. 11 

of Primogeniture in England, by which the eldest son inherits the father's 
estate to the exclusion of the other children, it may be expected that he will 
provide for the education of an infant younger brother, the other brothers, 
ordinarily, lacking the means; and when, as in this case, the brothers contribute 
jointly to that end, each must be presumed to have a separate income, such as 
would arise from connection with the established church, in which they, like 
those named in the Pedigree, possessed "Livings and other preferments." 

The omission of the first "a" from "Palace" changes it to "Place," and, since 
no known early manuscript containing either word is preserved; and, if such 
once existed, in the elaborate chirography of the eighteenth century with its 
ornaments and abbreviations, it would be easy to mistake the one for the other; 
and as the pronunciation of "Palace" after the manner of many Englishmen, in 
speaking other words, by which a syllable is often made to disappear, might 
produce a like result in the speech of those unacquainted with the existence of 
an old palace of the Bishop of London, or "Fulham's Palace," near London; and 
with the fact that a branch of the family "Chiefly devoted to the Church of 
England," and descended from Edward Fulham, Surveyor of Westminster Abbey, 
was then in being; it is reasonable to infer that Francis was born at Fulham's 
Palace; but there remains no record of him there; and, on account of the 
absence from Fulham of all Parish Record for the years preceding and those 
immediately following it, neither the place nor the date of his birth can be 
stated with certainty. 

It is not supposed that Francis Fulham was connected with "The Establish- 
ment" after he came to America, there being no church of that kind near him; 
but, after his marriage, he joined a church in the adjoining town of Sudbury, 
although his wife was never a member there; he was transferred to the Weston 
church at its organization in 1709; and his lifelong connection with that, with 
his undoubtedly high Christian character, indicate an early religious training. 

There is nothing to designate 1669 as the year of Francis Fulham's birth ex- 
cepting the inscription on his tombstone in the old cemetery of Weston, where 
it was said that, he "Died January ye 15, 1757, in ye 88th year of his age." As 
his will among the archives of the Probate Court in East Cambridge bears date 
"The twelfth day of December" in that year, it is evident that the date on his 
tombstone was according to "Old Style," then lately superseded, by which the 
year ended with March 24th; that the true date of his death is January 15, 
1758; and that, as he was then in his 88th year, allowing 10 days for the differ- 
ence in the two styles during the seventeenth century, his birth was in the year 
following "January 5th, 1669-70, 0. S." equivalent to January 15, 1670, N. S.* 

The vessel that brought Francis Fulham to the Province of Massachusetts 
Bay probably landed him in the vicinity of Boston. He is presumed to have

the fund provided for his education had been intrusted deprived him of all 
benefit from it, and he never entered Harvard. Diligent search of all probable 
places in Middlesex County has revealed nothing as to where he spent the rest 
of his minority. There are conflicting reports that he went to Weston from 
Marlboro and from Sudbury. There is no record of him in the Town Clerk's 
office of either of these towns, and the report that he went from Sudbury may 
have arisen from his membership in Sudbury Church; but this did not begin 
before 1706, there were four other members that lived in Weston and were trans- 
ferred to Weston Church with him, and the membership of these in the Sudbury 
Church probably resulted from its greater nearness to Weston than the church 
at Watertown. There is no tradition in the family that he ever lived in any 
part of Massachusetts other than the western part of Watertown, now Weston, 
where he died; and it may be presumed that he lived there sometime before 
his marriage. 

FRANCIS FULHAM married SARAH LIVERMORE (16), born Feb. (o. s. 18) 
n, s. 28, 1672; received into church fellowship in Weston, Mar. (5) 16, 1709; 
died Mar. (10) 21, 1724; dau. of Lieut. John and Hannah Livermore (13) of 
Watertown Farms (Weston). The date and place of this marriage are un- 
known.* The earliest known record of Francis Fulham is in the Town Clerk's 
office of Watertown, and relates to the birth of his first child, Nov. (19) 29, 1692.t 
From this it may be inferred that the marriage was in 1691, when Francis was 
21, and Sarah was 19 years old, or thereabouts. She was the mother of his four 
children. He m. 2d, Oct. 12, 1724, Mrs. Mary dau. of Thomas Woolson and 
widow of Samuel Jones, b. Dec. 8, 1673; d. Dec. 2, 1757, 44 days before her 
husband's death. 

The Registry of Deeds in Middlesex County shows that "Francis Fulham, 
Yeoman," by deed dated "May 14, 1696," bought of Joseph Allen, CJooper, and 
Samuel Allen and Elnathan Allen, Yeomen, all of "Watertown, in the County of 
Middlesex, within the Province of Massachusetts Bay, in New England, . . . Twenty 
and odd acres ... on the south side of the Country road, on a plain commonly 
called None Such Plain," near the south-west corner of the present town of 
Weston. Here he built a house long ago removed, elsewhere called "The Mansion 
House of Francis Fulham, Esq.," the location of which is fixed by a "Division 
[of the town] into highway districts," "May 22, 1734" among the archives of 
Weston, which mentions "A run of Water east of Col. Fulham's barn." The run, 

*The date of this event, "Feb. 22, 16S9," given in the "History of Fitzwilliam, N. H.," — the place 
not named, — when Francis was iS or 19, and Sarah Vvas 17 years old, is not supported by any known 
record, and is improbable. I furnished for that book all the information then in my possession, 
and all the facts contained in it relating to the first three generations of the Fulham family in 
America : which were printed as written bj- me. including errors since discovered and corrected 
herein, excepting this date, which was added after the paper left my hands, and without my knowl- 
edge. I have searched, since the publication of that book, in all probable places in the counties 
of Middlesex and Suffolk for a record of this marriage, and I have inquired for the authority for the 
date, without success. I believe no such record was found, and that the date given is either a 
blunder or a guess. The first child was born nearly four j-ears after, which renders it still more 
improbable that the marriage was at that time. V. S. F.

the foundation of the barn, and an old cellar hole, where the house stood, are 
yet to be seen. This spot is four or five miles from the village of Natick, 
where dwelt a part of "Elliot's Praying Indians," long under the supervision 
of Judge Fulham. And here was his home until his death more than sixty 
years after. He bought by deed dated "Jan. 4, 1697" from James Barnard of 
Sudbury, "Pull sixty acres"; and by deed dated "Feb. 10, 1706-7" from the same, 
"twenty and four acres or thereabouts." By deed dated "July 7, 1703," he bought 
of George Phillips, of Brookhaven in the County of Suffolk, on the Island of 
Nassau, in the Province of New York, in her :Majesty's Territories in New Eng- 
land, Clerk," the fifth part of "Twenty-four acres or thereabouts." On "March 
5, 1706-7," Joseph Bullard deeded to "Capt. Francis Fulham ... by estimation 
one acre." "March 26, 1707." Alexander Miller conveyed to him a "Farm of one 
hundred acres." "April 18, 1709," Joseph Mors, Cordwainer, deeded to him 
"Three acres of meadow." And these seven purchases, amounting in all to about 
two hundred thirteen acres, apparently adjoining or near one another, consti- 
tuted the home farm of Francis Fulham. Besides these he had a share of the 
Sudbury Lot not far away, elsewhere described. — See Livermore 13. 

By deed dated "May 24, 1715," John Adams of Colchester, Hartford County, 
Conn., conveyed to Francis Fulham of Weston, "Gentleman, ... All that my 
Right, Title, and Interest wch. my Hond. father George Adams the above named 
ever had or ought to have in & unto all those lands by my said father George 
Adams purchased with the leave of the Genl. Court of the Indians of Wash- 
acom, lying in and near Lancaster in the abovesd. County of Middsx." And by 
deed dated "Nov. 7, 1723," Samuel Adams, another son of George Adams; 
and Joseph Adams. 'In right of his father Daniel Adams also son of the afore- 
said George Adams," conveyed to "Francis Fulham Esq. of Weston," two-fifths 
of the same tract, "Formerly granted or given by Shoi now Sachem of Nash- 
away unto the sd. George Adams and Francis his wife, which was confirmed 
by the Genl. Court held at Boston May 12, 1675, Containing Two Hundred acres 
at Washacomhill." 

In "Hurd's History of Worcester County," page 761, it is said: "On the 7th 
of December, 1719, the General Court, in one act, granted 'two new towns on the 
west side of Groton west line.' William Taylor, Samuel Thaxter, Francis Ful- 
ham. John Shipley, Benjamin Whittemore, then members of the General Court, 
were selected to conduct a survey of the grants, to allot the same, and to admit 
the grantees. The grant appears in 'Torry's Fitchburg' and in 'Sawtell's Town- 
send,' but many interesting details of the early proceedings remain unpublished. 
Three of the Committee, Fulham, Shipley, and Whittemore, with Samuel Jones, 
surveyor, and four chain-men began the survey of the boundary line of the two 
townships December 22, 1719, and completed the work in eight days. In April 
following, in connection with another committee, they established the west line 
of Groton, or the east line of the new towns. Continuing a work well and 
seasonably begun, the committee, all being present, met at Concord, May 1, 
1720, and proceeded to admit settlers or grantees, in the language of the record 
of the proceedings, 'To allot and grant out ye lands contained in each of ye two 



14 FULHAM. 

townships.' By the Committee the townships were styled North Town and 
South Town. The former at that time including Townsend and a part of Ashby, 
and the latter embracing the present towns of Lunenburg, Fitchburg, and a 
part of Ashby. . . . 

"Within the town (Lunenburg) are five natural ponds and three of them bear 
names of Indian origin. The one situated near the re-entrant angle in the line 
of Leominster contains ninety-five acres, and its name has experienced many or- 
thographical changes. In the proceedings of the Colonial Legislature, in 1713, 
it is written Unkachewalwick, and ten years later Francis Ftilham, in the records 
of the committee of the General Court, writes Unkechewalom, and about the 
same time comes Edward Hartwell, who wrestles with the name, and leaves 
upon the records Uncachawalonk; while Rev. Peter Whitney, in the 'History 
of Worcester County,' (1793), in writing Unkeshawalom, nearly repeats the 
record of Francis Fulham, which has been the prevailing orthography of 
modern times. ... By Francis Fulham the name of the third pond is written 
Cataconamog." — p. 760. 

"Francis Fulham was . . . the clerk of the committee and his clear, ornate 
penmanship is preserved." — p. 765. 

In "New England Historical & Genealogical Register," Vol. 19, p. 244, it is 
said "At a meeting legally warned, the prop'rs of the Common and undivided 
lands within the town of Lunenburg (June 11, 1731), Laid out by the Com'rs 
api>ointed, one thousand acres of land in the South-west Corner of said Town- 
ship, to the Great and General Court Com'tee (viz.) the Hon'ble William Taylor 
Esq'r, the Hon'ble Samuel Thaxter Esq're, Col'l Francis Fulham Esq'r, and Mr. 
Benj. Whitemore, and Capt. John Sheple, Granted to them by the Proprietors 
for their former Good Services in said township: Beginning at a Pillar of stones 
erected for the corner of s'd Township and running East 12 Degrees South on 
the South line of Said township 400 rods to a Chestnut tree, then make an angle 
and running north 12 Degrees East, on Common land 400 rods to a white pine 
tree, there making an angle and running west 12 Degrees north on Common 
land — 400 rods to a maple tree, there making an angle and running South 12 
Degrees west on the town line 400 rods, to where it began."* Francis Fulham's 
part of this 1000 acres, being Lot No. 3, known as the "Committee Farm," was 
conveyed by him in deed dated "April 2d, 1745" to Aaron Whittemore, recorded 
in Book 59, p. 48, of the Records of Worcester County. 

Francis Fulham owned a lot as one of the original proprietors of the town, 
and by deed dated Dec. 6, 1754, recorded in Book 38, p. 449, conveyed to his 
grandson Francis Fulham of Bolton 120 acres, being the easterly end of the 
farm in Lunenburg, now Fitchburg, — Lot No. 5. By deed dated March 8, 1757, 
— Book 38, p. 145, Francis Fulham conveyed to Joseph Dana, of Lebanon, Conn., 
and his wife Mary, daughter of Col. Francis Fulham, eighty acres in Lunenburg, 
being part of Lot No. 5, bounded on the east by land of Francis Fulham, Jr., 

*In "Proprietor's Records of Fitchburg, 1729-1S33," at page 165, it is said : "June 9, 1741, Col. Fran- 
cis Fulham Esq.. renewed the bounds of the 1000 acres in S. W. corner of the town, being the only 
survivor of the grantees. Cut down several trees and took possession." — Granted Mar. 16, 1725-6. 



FULHAM. 15 

also part of Lot No. 5; and on the west by the line of Narraganset Township 
No. 2. The original lot was 80 rods wide from north to south, and, containing 
200 acres, was therefore 400 rods long. The 120 acres conveyed to Francis Fiil- 
ham, Jr., of Bolton, with two dwelling houses and a barn thereon, was conveyed 
March 23, 1785, by Francis Fulham of Fitchburg and Susanna his wife, to his 
sons Jacob Fulham and Oliver Fulham. In 1800 Oliver Fulham conveyed to 
Jacob Fulham the southern half of the same lot by a deed in which reference 
is made to an agreement from which it would appear that the lot had been 
divided between them at some previous time. 

Before Francis Fulham was the owner of real estate in Watertown he became 
active in town affairs. A controversy arose as to the location of a new meet- 
inghouse to accommodate all parts of Watertown, and a protest against a pro- 
posed situation was signed by 118 men. the first being Jno. Livermore (13), 
and the twenty-fourth his son-in-law Francis Fulham. In the Court Records of 
Middlesex County, — p. 273, it is recorded that at a Court of Genl. Sessions of the 
Peace at Charlestown, March 11th, 1711-12, "Capt. Francis Fulham" was fore- 
man of the Grand Jury. 

The form and size of Watertown, originally, were such that the inhabitants 
of the south-west part were from five to eight miles from the meetinghouse in 
the more populous easterly extremity; and this soon led to an agitation for the 
division of the town. The Great and General Court "Sep. 15, 1694,"— Ct. Rec. 
Lib. 6, p. 357, ordered that "James Russell, Samuel Sewall, and Joseph Lynde, 
Esqrs. & others [be] Appointed a Comm. to hear the Parties as to erecting 
Westerly Precinct"; and on "Dec. 3, 1695," — p. 430, the general Court "Voted 
that . . . [the] Westerly end of Watertown be granted to be a peculiar or dis- 
tinct Precinct for that end; all to the Westward of Stony Brook (so called)." 
The Committee of the Precinct in 1706 was Thomas Wilson, Capt. Josiah Jones, 
Capt. Francis Fulham, and Lieut. John Brewer. "June 14, 1698, ' — Ct. Rec. Lib. 
6, p. 591, "Ordered [that] the Petitioners be allowed to settle a learned and 
Orthodox Minister." A project to build a meetinghouse in the West Precinct 
had existed some three years before this order and resulted in the erection of a 
building thirty feet square, for that use, near the site of the present Unitarian 
Church, its successor; and the church soon after formed is continued there. 

The records of the Westerly Precinct, and those of the town of Weston, 1695- 
1754, have been missing for nearly a century; and this period includes the most 
active part of Francis Fulham's life; but from other records, and from various 
papers still preserved in the town, much has been learned of his connection 
with public affairs. He was one of the selectmen of Watertown in the years 
1710 and 1711; he was prominent in the business of the precinct; and it was, 
by the Great and General Court, "Upon reading the Petition of Francis Fulham, 
Josiah Jones & Daniel Estabrook, a Committee of the West Precinct of Water- 
town commonly called the Farms, Praying that (having the consent of the 
town therefor) they be granted to be a distinct Township to Enjoy the Privi- 
leges & Immunities wch. other Towns do & may by Law Enjoy: — 

"Ordered that the Prayer of the Petition be granted, and that the West Pre- 



10 FULHAM. 

cinct iu Watertowii commonly called by the Name of the Farms be erected and 
made into a Township, . . . The Town to be named Weston." — Ct. Rec. Lib. 9, 
p. 250, Jan. (1) 12, 1713. 

At the first election in Weston, Francis Fulham was made Town Clerk, and 
he held that office in the years 1713-1718. His name often appears as moderator 
at Town Meetings, and it is probable that he generally occupied that position 
until a "Meeting of Freeholders, August 8, 1751," of which he was the moderator 
at the age of about eighty-one years. 

Apparently without advancement through the usual grades he became "Cap- 
tain of the third Military Company of Watertown" as early as 1706. He is so 
described in his petition to the Council in behalf of certain members of that 
company in 1709, — Council Records, Lib. 5, p. 196; and he was called Capt 
Fulham in records until 1720. He was then known as Major until 1730, when 
the title of colonel was applied to him in records and documents; and the abbre- 
viation "Col." is prefixed to the name on his tombstone; but nothing further is 
known of his military career. 

The records of the Great and General Court show that Francis Fulham was 
the first representative from Weston in that body, and that he represented the 
town in the years 1713-14-15-17-18-19-20-22-24-29-30-31-36-37. The Journals of only 
two of these years have been accessible, but in that of 1715 his name is often 
mentioned. He was appointed on a "Committee for Petitions, to examine the 
matters and Allegations thereof, and report the same with their Opinions to 
the House." It was "Ordered that Capt. Noyes, Capt. Fulham, Mr. Denison, Mr. 
William Paine, Mr. Remington, and Capt. Cowley be a Committee to Examine 
and Consider the Votes that have passed this year between the Houses concern- 
ing the Forts at Casco Bay and Brunswick, and prepare the Draught of a Vote 
proper for the House to pass in answer to the said last Vote of the Board." It 
was "Ordered, that Mr. Elisha Cook, Mr. Samuel Clap, Adam Winthrop, Col. 
Samuel Thaxter, and Capt. Francis Fulham, with such others as the Honorable 
Board shall Join, be a Committee to prepare the Draught of a Bill, for Settling 
and Quieting the Titles of the Lands, that are to the Eastward of Piscataqua 
River, pursuant to the Vote of this Court this Session." And there were other 
appointments at the session of 1715. At the session of 1730, "Voted, That Col. 
Francis Fulham, Col. Berry, Mr. Shove, Mr. Bixby, and Mr. Fairfield be a Com- 
mittee to see what Laws are expired, or are near expiring and proper to be 
revived, and what new ones need to be made." And there are many similar 
appointments at this session. 

The Province Laws of 1718-19 show that Francis Fulham was appointed one 
of three commissioners "To examine and regulate the several lists and valua- 
tions made by the assessors of each town," for the county of Middlesex. 

In "Drake's History of Middlesex County, Massachusetts," at page 492, it is 
said of Francis Fulham that, in the town of Weston he "held numerous re- 
sponsible oflSces, and was for a long time the most influential man, . . . June 
19, 1724, he with Jonas Bond of Watertown, and Francis Bowen of Lexington, 
were appointed to be 'Commissioners of Sewers,' and the immediate object of 



FULHA^I. 17 

their appointment was 'the cleansing and removal of such banks and other 
obstructions' in Sudbury and Concord river, "Which do occasion the overflowing 
thereof; and of draining the meadow and other low lands adjoining or lying on 
said river.' " 

Part of an original deed in the "Clear, ornate penmanship" described in 
Kurd's History of Worcester County, before referred to, dated Oct. 26, 1714; 
witnessed by Francis Fulham and Sarah Fulham his wife; and acknowledged 
before Francis Fulham, Justice of the Peace; indicates that he then held that 
office, although no record of his appointment at so early a date is found; and 
several court records show that he was acting as such before the earliest ap- 
pointment of which record is found. This is one: "Middx. ss. Concord August 
27th (1717) At his Majesties Court of General Sessions of the Peace then and 
there holden by his Maj'ties Justices of the Peace for sd. County"; among the 
names of 15 Justices appended is 'Fra Fulham.' " 

"At a session of the Council held at the Council Chambers in Boston upon 
Wednesday April 16, 1718, . . . This day being appointed for the nomination of 
civil officers, His Excellency nominated . . . Francis Fulham Esq'r for a Justice 
over the Indians in the County of Middlesex. ... To which . . . the Council 
advised and consented." — Council Records, Liber 6, p. 551. Under this appoint- 
ment Francis Fulham exercised a supervision and authority peculiar to the 
time, and akin to guardianship — the oflBcer being sometimes called Superintend- 
ent — over a remnant of the 1500 semichristianized Savages of Natick, known 
as "Praying Indians," assembled there by Rev. John Elliot, "Indian Apostle," 
within the quarter-century beginning with 1651. 

"At a Council held at ye Council Chamb'r in Boston on Wednesday Feb'y 21, 
1727, . . . Present The Hon'ble Wm: Dummer Esq. Lt. Gov'. A petition of 
Thomas Pegan and other Indian Inhabitants of Natick containing divers Com- 
plaints against Francis Fulham Esq'r. in his administration of the Governm't 
over them, Pray'g that he may be dismissed from his Office of a Justice of the 
Peace over the said Natick Indians; Read and Ordered that the Petitioners 
serve Francis Fulham Esq'r with a copy of this Petition, that so he give in his 
answer thereto on Thursday the thirteenth of ]\Iay next. Wm. Dummer." — 
Coun. Rec. Lib. 9, p. 25. 

"At a Council held on May 31, 1728," also presided over by Wm, Dummer: 
"Upon the INIemorial of Thos: Pegan and other Indians of Natick complaining 
against Francis Fulham Esq'r, as entered February 21, 1727, Read again together 
with the Answer of Francis Fulham Esq'r., and the Recantation of ye Memorial- 
ists in which they acknowledge that they were deluded into the said Memorial & 
having asked forgiveness of their fault & the matter being duly considered, 
Ordered that the said ^lemorial or Complaint be dismissed as groundless & 
vexatious." — Coun. Rec. Lib. 9, p. 42. 

This appears to be the only complaint made by the Natick Indians against 
Francis Fulham's administration, therein described as a "Government over 
them"; and this relation was continued more than the third of a century, — he 
being meantime the only similar officer in Middlesex Co., while several such 



18 FULHAM. 

were simultaneously in Office in other counties of Mass., and until "Middlesex, 
ss. Natick March ye 30, 1752, ... At a meeting of the Proprietors of the Com- 
mon and undivided land in Natick being duly warned and regularly assembled 
on the 30th day of March 1752, Lieut. John Richardson chosen Moerator. 

"The 2d article considered and voted to choose another in the room of the 
Hon'ble Francis Fulham Esq'r. (who desires to be dismisst.) and Chose Lieut. 
Jonathan Richardson, in his room, to procure their Rent money of their 
Maguncog lands of the Hon'ble Trustees, and pay it to each Proprietor axjcord- 
ing to his Proportion." — Old Record Book at Natick, p. 122. 

The records of Natick show that Francis Fulham, in the administration of 
his office as justice of the peace, married both those having English names, 
perhaps assumed by Indians, and those whose surnames were of unquestionable 
Indian origin, as: "James Cookuck and Sarah Awancomott; Solomon Wans- 
quam and Sarah Laurence; John Pegan and Mary Rumblemarsh." 

Meetings of Proprietors were called by Francis Fulham, Justice of the Peace; 
the "Votes and Acts" at such meetings were "Accepted and allowed" by him. 
"At a meeting of the proprietors of the Common and Undivided Lands in 
Natick upon the 25th day of October 1731, being duly Warned as the Law 
Directs by virtue of an Order of the Hon'rble Francis Fulham Esq'r, Upon an 
Address Made to him by five of the principal proprietors of Said Natick His 
Hon'r being present, 

"Voted by the said proprietors that Samuel Perry of Sherbourne shall have 
the free Liberty to take up the quantity of three acres and one half of Land 
within the said Common in One or More places where it may suit him Joining 
to his Own Land to Make up the thirty acres to him which he purchased of 
Jacob Chalcom. 

"Voted fully in the affirmative and consented to by Francis Fulham Esq'e." 
—p. 16. 

"At a Meeting of the proprietors of the Common and Undivided Lands in 
Natick January the 5th, 1735-6, Orderly Warned . . . 

"Present the Honorable Francis Fulham Esq'e Thomas Pegan was Chosen 
Moderator of said Meeting by a Majority of Votes. 

"Attest Wm Rider Clerk of ye said Proprietors." — p. 42. 

This form is often employed in beginning records. The Moderator is prob- 
ably the Thomas Pegan that headed the petition for the removal of Francis 
Fulham. 

"Natick September ye 13th 1721 — At a meeting of the Proprietors Lawfully 
warned for the purpose, there was Granted unto Moses Smith of Needham — and 
to his heirs for ever 40 acres of land lying on the South westerly side of Pegun 
Hill for finishing the Meeting house if the Honorable General Court shall please 
to Confirm the same, and the town hath this day Chosen Major Fulham at [and] 
Li'ut Thomas Sawin as our Committee to see that the work is well done and 
we pray that the Honorable Court would please to accept them as such — and we 
have this day also Chosen Joseph Speen, Solomon Thomas, and Samuel Om- 
petawin our Commity to acquaint Major Fulham Esq'e with the same for 



fulha:m. 19 

approbation," — From a loose leaf of "Proprietors' Road Book," said to be in 
the writing of an Indian. 

A story told to the Author's father by Oliver Whitney of Cavendish, Vt., 
who was reared in Natick, and, in his boyhood, knew Francis Fulham, indicates 
that he sometimes took personal direction of public improvements there. Whit- 
ney described him as a large, strong, good-looking man; and said that he saw 
him in charge of Indians at work on a road, when a large, stout Indian went 
off and got drunk, and, then, came back to work. He got offended and made 
an assault on Col. Fulham, by whom he was thrown to the ground. A second 
attack resulted in his being thrown to considerable distance, and he was or- 
dered away. When sober, iie returned, got down on his knees, and begged Col. 
Fulham's pardon. Francis Fulham, then, must have been from 60 to 70 years 
old; and the tale illustrates the dignity of his character, the homage paid him 
by the Indians, and his great strength, often reproduced in his descendants. As 
a justice of the peace, he married many couples in Weston; and his name ap- 
pears as the magistrate taking acknowledgements, in a principal part of the 
conveyances, for nearly forty years. 

The date of Francis Fulham's admission to the bar is not known, but the 
probable time is suggested by a memorandum with the initial '"A. B." appended, 
accompanied by a letter in the same handwriting, signed "Austin Bacon," 
dated at "Natick, Sept. 6, 1860." and addressed to "Sewall Fulham, Esq., Ludlow, 
Vt." as follows: "I have it on Tradition that about 1700 he was studying with 
one Jones who died leaving a wife Mary, and that many years after (prob. 
about 1724) Fulham's wife died & he married Mary Jones — At any rate in 1710 
or '11 he plead in the courts, being about 40 years old and a stout noble looking 
man, who had, by his own exertions, enabled him so to do." Samuel Jones, 
first husband of Mary Woolson, died Feb. 5, 1718, in his 41st year. The letter 
refers to a previously "exchanged communication (1846)." 

Mass. Council Records, Liber 7, pp. 52-4, has the following: 

"At a Council held in ye Council Chamber in Boston on Saturday 
June 27th: 1719 Sitting ye Gen'l Ass'bly. 

"Present

There seems to have been no stated term for this office, but Francis Fulham 



20 FULHAM. 

was several times reappointed and confirmed in it by the Governor and Council; 

and he held the office continuously until 

■'At a Council held at the Council Chambers in Boston upon Thursday 
the 26th of June 1755. Sitting the General Assembly. 
"Present, his Excellency William Shirley Esq'r. Governor 

"The General Council for nominating & appointing Civil Officers being met 
according to order, His Excellency was pleased to nominate the following per- 
sons to their respective Offices, hereinafter mentioned, viz't. William Lawrence 
Esq', to be a Justice of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas in the County of 
Middlesex, in the room of Francis Fulham, Esq'r. who has resigned. "" 

The records of the court show that during seven years on the bench Francis 
Fulham's name stood last in the list of four justices; and that on Dec. 13, 1726, 
his name also appears as the first of four "Justices of s'd Court in Commiss'rs 
Actions," the others not being Justices of the Court of Common Pleas. 

"The Massachusetts Civil List" shows also that in "1734-5, Feb. 21, Samuel 
Danforth, Francis Foxcraft, Francis Fulham," were Special Justices Court of 
Common Pleas ... To act in cases where any of the standing Justices were 
interested;" that of these only Francis Fulham was a Justice of the Court: 
that he was confirmed the last time August 24, 1753, and resigned June 26. 1755, 
after having held the office of justice exactly thirty-six years continuously, 
during the last fourteen of which he was Chief Justice. He was at this time 
about 85 years old, and the Court Records show that he was presiding at -the 
term beginning May 20, 1755, the last before his resignation. Advanced age 
would seem a sufficient reason for retiring, a judge of his years being uncom- 
mon even among our vigorous ancestors of a hundred and fifty years ago, but 
his deafness probably hastened it. 

In "Sketches of the Judicial History of Massachusetts from 1630 to 1776 by 
Emory Washburn." at page 341, as to the "Judges of the Court of Common Pleas 
for Middlesex County," is this: "Francis Fulham was of Weston, and held many 
public offices besides that of Chief Justice of this Court, such as Colonel of the 
Militia, member of the Council, &c., he resigned his place upon the bench a 
few years before his death. ... He is spoken of as a man 'of distinguished 
natural powers and good conduct' and as 'having discharged the duties of his 
several betrustments with honor, and died with the serenity and good hope of a 
Christian.' " The statement that he was a "Member of the Council" is also in 
"Bench and Bar of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts," — Vol. 2, p. 177; but 
no record of his appointment or acting as one of the Council is found, and this 
is prolxibly an error. 

In the "Diary and Letters of Judge Samuel Sewall" published in the "Massa- 
chusetts Historical Collection" mention is made of "Capt. Fulham" and "Major 
Fulham" in a way to indicate an intimate association between these two men 
in connection with the Governor, the Attorney General, members of the Council, 
and other prominent officials of the Colony. A letter from "Capt. Fulham." 
written in response to a message sent to him, is mentioned as received "Feb. 5, 
1718-19"; it was read by the Secretary before the Governor and Council: and 



FULHAM. 21 

the publication of such records may have led to the inference that Judge Ful- 
ham was a member of the Council. The appointment of Francis Fulham to the 
bench of the Court of Common Pleas was in June following the date of this 
letter, and Samuel Sewall's name is among those of the Council present at the 
time of his appointment. The intimacy between these two men is supposed by 
the Author to account for "Sewall" being given as a Christian name to a 
g.g.grandson of Judge Fulham, Rev. Sewall Fulham, of Reading. Vt.; from him 
it descended to his eldest son, and as a second name to the Author. 

Fulham was the original name given Dec. 2tJ, 1753. to Dummerstou. Vt.. where, 
at different times, it wa-s also written "Fullham" and "Fullum." William Dum- 
mer, Lieut. Gov. of MAssachusetts Bay, was with the Counc il "June 27. 1719," 
when (iov. Shule named FVancis F^ilham as Justice of the Court of Common 
Pleas; and he was present and presiding on 'Feb. 21. 1727" and "May 31. 1728," 
at the presenting and the dismissing of the complaint and petition of Thomas 
Pegun and other Indians of Nati<k. seeking the removal of Francis Fulham 
from the office of Justlre of the Peace over them. It is said in "Child's Wind- 
ham County (Jazateer." — pp. 5S-9, that the tract of land out of which the three 
towns. Fulham. Putney, and Brattleboro. Vt. were made was first the property 
of William Duiumer; and it is evident that the name given to the first of these 
by the proprietor was in honor of his old friend Judge Francis Fulham. As 
late as 1773 the town wjis known by the two names, but after that it was called 
DuniMierHton only, for the original proprietor. 

In an old tax bill of West Precinct dated "Sept. 17, 1708," the first two names 
are "Capt. Francis Fulham" and "I-t. John Livermore." his father-in-law; Liver- 
more being taxed for the largest, and Fulham for the third largest sum in the 
list.— about two-thirds that of Livermore. Francis Fulham was then ta.xed on 
"2 heads" for himself and his only son. In an original "Order to Constable to 
pay & Receipt for Payments" dated "Weston March ye 2 — 1722-3," appears the 
name "Maj. Francis Fulham"; and the sum si>ecified is about ten times that 
affixed to any other name. 

Something of the dress and possessions of Judge Fulham. and of the method 
of punishing criminals in his time appears in the following re<ord: — 

"Court at Concord Aug. 2S, 1739 — &c. &c. being presented by the 

Grand Inquest for the body of this County. 

"For that the said on the nineteenth of August instant at 

Weston in the county of Middlesex aforesaid: with Force and Arms did felon- 
iously take, steal & carry away out of the Mansion House of one Francis Ful- 
ham Esq: Sundry of the Goods and Chattels of the said Francis, Vizt: a Pen- 
knife, a Pocket Compass, and a pair of Deerskin Breeches, all of the value of 
four pounds; and twelve Pounds in Bills of publick Credit, being the property 
of the said Francis, contrary to the Peace, Crown, and Dignity of our I^rd the 
King, and to the laws in that Case made and provided. 

"The said appeared and pleaded Guilty — It's therefore Con- 
sidered by the Court that the said forfeit & pay to the said Francis 



22 FULHAM. 

Fulham the Prosecutor the Sum of Forty eight Pounds being treble Damages, 
the Goods and money being returned, to be accounted one third Part thereof. 

"And in case the said be unable to make such Restitution or 

pay such Threefold Damages within thirty Days next following, that, then the 
said Francis Fulham. the Prosecutor, be and hereby is impowered to dispose of 

the said in service to any of His Majesty's Subjects during the 

Term of three Years. — Also that the said pay as a Fine to the 

King the Sum of Five Pounds within three Hours or in default to be whipped 
fifteen Stripes on his naked back, and that he pay fees and costs. Standing Com- 
mitted 'till this Sentence be performed. The Fine above was paid into Court." 

Francis Fulham, of Weston, in a suit begun by writ dated April 28, 1757, less 
than nine months before his death, against Nathaniel Livermore, in a plea of 
debt, recovered "9 pounds twelve shillings debt & one pound 14 shillings six 
pence costs"; showing that, at the age of 87, he still had the disposition and 
ability to assert and maintain his rights. 

In an oration by Charles H. Fiske at the Town Hall in Weston, July 4, 1876, 
a story is told of Judge Francis Fulham, illustrative of his position in that 
community after he left the bench, in which he is called "Squire," a title once 
comprehensive enough to include any rank less than that of the nobility, as 
follows: — "During Parson Woodward's sermon one Sunday morning, an old 
Colored woman in the gallery, probably rather solid and heavy, fell asleep and 
tumbled off the bench on which she sat, on to the floor; the old Squire — who, by 
the way was quite deaf the last part of his life, — conscious that something 
unusual had happened, but not quite knowing what, and feeling a peculiar 
responsibility for the good behavior of the people at meeting, immediately 
jumped up from his seat, and called out, 'Stop Reverend Sir.' Mr. Woodward 
thereupon stopped, and then the old man said, in a loud voice: 'If any one has 
discharged a gun in this meeting house, let him be brought before me to- 
morrow morning at 9 o'clock.' He was at last made to understand the cause 
of the disturbance, and he then said: 'If what I thought, had happened, what I 
said was right; proceed Reverend Sir:' whereupon Mr. Woodward resumed his 
discourse, and the services went on as usual." 

About three years after the marriage of his only son Jacob, Francis Fulham 
gave him some eighty acres from the north-east corner of his home farm. All 
his Fltchburg property, apparently, had been disposed of, and his remaining 
estate passed by the following will: —

Fight, Fryeburg, Me., May (8) 19, 1725. He had a herculean frame, and was 
said to be the strongest man in New England. Several old men from the 
vicinity of Weston that, in their youth, had known Jacob's father, among them 
the two grandfathers of Sewall Fulham, Jr., the Author's father, told Sewall 
early in the nineteenth century. That Judge Fulham said his son Jacob, at the 
age of fourteen, could lift more than he — Jacob's father — ever could; that, at 
that age, Jacob felled an oak down a bank, cut off a log, and carried it up the 
bank; and that no man in the neighborhood could lift either end of the log. 
He married (Feb. 28) Mar. 10, 1716, TABITHA WHITNEY, b. (Aug. 22) Sep. 1,

F." was received into Weston Church. He built a house on the north-easterly 
part of his father's farm, on which he had a dam and probably a saw-mill. 

By deed dated "March 6, 1718-19" Francis Fulham, in consideration of "Love 
and Affection," conveyed to his "Only Son, Jacob Fulham, ... a certain tract 
or parcel of Land, Meadow, and Meadow ground. Situated, lying, and being in 
Weston aforesaid, on the South side of the Great Country Road leading through 
Weston to Sudbury, Containing, by estimation, in the whole about Eighty acres 
be the same more or less; it being parted into two pieces by a strip of land four 
rods in width running Easterly or Northeasterly, by the Southerly side of the 
Rail fence as it now stands, from the land of the said Francis Fulham to the 
new dwelling house of the said Jacob Fulham as the said fence now stands; 
and thence Easterly or Northeasterly as the way is now drawn over Jacob Ful- 
ham's Dam, to the West end of the highway last laid out thro Benj. Bullard's 
land two rods wide, the whole strip of land the said Fra: Fulham reserves to 
himself, his heirs and assigns forever for a highway or whatever other use thej' 
shall see cause for. The above given and granted Eighty acres by Estimation 
(including said reserved strip of land) is bounded Southerly with land com- 
monly called Land of Contention ." This deed was left for record August 

(20) 31, 1725, more than three months after the death of Jacob Fulham; and the 
whole transaction shows the amicable relations and perfect confidence existing 
between the father and the son and the son's family, during all that time. 

George Harrington of Watertown, by deed dated "June 26, 1722," conveyed to 
Jacob Fulham of Weston, "A certain tract of Land lying in Weston aforesaid, 
being part of the farm formerly Barnard's Farm, and is bounded Easterly upon 
the land of Maj. Fr: Fulham by certain marked Trees and heaps of Stones; . . . 



FULHAM. 25 

Containing by estimation twenty-four acres be the same more or less, with the 
Wood, Timber, Stones, Watercourses, herbage, and all manner of Rights, Privi- 
leges, and appurtenances thereunto; to him the said Jacob Fulham." 

Jacob Fulham was one of the original proprietors of Turkey Hills, now Fitch- 
burg, in the survey of which he assisted, and in which he acquired a lot in May 
1720, "Not to exceed 250 acres,"' after his death sold by the administratrix of his 
estate for eighty pounds. 

It appears from the history of Watertown and Weston that neither town ever 
suffered from the incursions of hostile Indians, but men from those towns were 
often employed in service against them elsewhere; among these was Jacob Ful- 
ham, who, after he reached manhood, was much engaged in the Indian Wars, 
and many times went on expeditions against the savage enemy. These were 
most frequent between 1718 and the time of his death. On one occasion, being 
surrounded by hostile Indians, he shot one; and, as others were too near to give 
him time to load, he clubbed his musket, determined to sell his life as dearly 
as possible. The Indians being anxious to take him alive, proposed to Fulham, 
that, if he would surrender, they would spare his life and treat him kindly. 
This being the only way in which he could hope to escape death, he consented, 
and delivered his musket to the Sachem in command, a big chief, who, on re- 
ceiving the weapon, struck the captive with it, inflicting a severe scalp wound 
with the lock. The Indians returned with their prisoner to Three Rivers, Ca., 
where a council was held to determine his fate. The squaw of the warrior 
that he had killed demanded the white captive to live, as a son. with her 
and work for her support; to which the council agreed, but condemned him 
first to run the gauntlet. At the beginning of this race for life, Fulham noticed 
a brave awaiting his approach with a stone in his hand; and, fearing that it 
would hit him, ran against the Indian with such force as to project him from 
the line like the missile from a catapult. This exploit so pleased the Indians 
that they compelled Fulham to run no farther, and delivered him to his foster 
mother, who soon healed his wounded head. His mechanical ingenuity enabled 
him to serve the squaw in making clothes and in other ways; but he soon 
perceived that the Indians would not part with him voluntarily while he was 
useful. His. foster mother now found him neglectful of his filial duties, lazy, 
and turbulent; and, not long after, she sold him to a French gentlemen that 
admired his fine physique. 

In his new situation Fulham soon learned that the French and the Indians 
were accustomed to meet yearly for a trial of strength and skill at wrestling; 
and that for some years the big chief had been victor over the French. The 
gentleman was not long in discovering that he had secured a Hercules as well 
as an Apollo in young Fulham, and, when the time for the annual contest 
arrived, took him to it hoping to make him useful. The chief soon entered the 
ring and threw all the best men of the French, when Fulham was asked to 
wrestle with the champion. At first he declined saying that, if he should hurt 
the chief, the Indians would kill him; but, on receiving assurances that the 
French would protect him, he yielded to their importunities, and took hold of 



28 FULHAM. 

the chief, determined to punish him for his breach of faith. After a short 
struggle Fulham threw the chief and fell with him striking his knee in the 
Indian's stomach so violently that, at first, he appeared lifeless, which aroused 
the resentment of the Indians. The anger of the savages was somewhat allayed 
when the chief began to revive; and the French withdrew with their champion, 
greatly elated by their victory. When news came a few days after that the 
chief was dead, the French, to save him from savage vengeance, hastily fitted 
out Fulham with the necessary arms and supplies; and he made the long, lonely, 
perilous journey through the northern wilderness to his home and family in 
Weston, where he had been mourned as dead. 

The incursions of hostile bands of Indians from Canada and from Maine, 
with their destruction of property, the slaughter of men, women, and children, 
the torture of captives, and other outrages, at exposed points on the frontier of 
Massachusetts, led to the sending out of expeditions for the destruction of the 
savages. Among the leaders of these was Captain John Lovewell of Dunstable, 
a border town that originally included Nashua, N. H. Dunstable had suffered 
severely from these incursions. In 1724, eleven of her men, while pursuing a 
party of raiding savages, w^ere ambuscaded, and all but one, Josiah Farwell, 
were killed. In the fall of the same year the following petition was presented: —

This action was concurred in by the Council Nov. (17) 28, 1724. — See Military 
Records of Massachusetts, Liber 72, p. 199. 

Under this authority a company of 47 officers and men was organized, John 
I^vewell being Captain, and Jacob Fulham being a Sergeant. They left Dun- 
stable about April (16) 27, 1725, for the upper waters of the Saco River in 
Maine held by the Sosois tribe of Indians, noted for their warlike character and 
their hatred of the whites. Toby, apparently the only friendly Indian in the 
company, soon became lame and was obliged to return. When they reached 
Contoocook, William Cummins, suffering from an old wound, was dismissed with 
a kinsman to accompany him home; and the sickness of Benjamin Kidder 
forced them to halt at "Ossapy," where they built a small fort as a place of 
refuge, in case of disaster, and left the sick man, the doctor, their surplus 
provisions, and a sergeant with seven men as a garrison. The fo^ce, thus re- 
duced to 34, proceeded about 40 miles to Saco Pond. 

On Thursday May (6) 17, there were indications that they were observed and 
dogged by the enemy; and, on Friday night, the watch heard Indians around the 
camp. The men, being aroused and under arms the rest of the night, expected 
an attack; but no enemy appeared in the morning. Very early Saturday May 
(8) 19, while at prayers, they heard a gun, and soon discovered an Indian on 
a point of land opposite the side of the pond at which they had arrived, evi- 
dently stationed there as a decoy. Expecting to find the enemy in force in that 
direction, and that an advance would bring on an engagement with superior 
numbers, "It was now proposed, whether it were Prudent to venture an Engage- 
ment with the Enemy, (who they perceiv'd were now sufficiently Alarmed,) or, 
endeavour a speedy Retreat. The Men Generally & Boldly Answered, 'We came 



28 FULHAM. 

out to meet the Enemy; we have all along Prayed GOD we might find 'em; 
and we had rather trust Providence with our Lives, yea Dy for our Country, 
than try to Return without seeing them, if we may, and be called Cowards for 
our Pains.' " They laid down their packs and proceeded with great caution, 
fearing an ambush. A mile or two farther on an Indian was seen approaching, 
and they lay in wait for him; when he came near he was fired on, and he re- 
turned the fire with a charge of beaver shot, wounding the Captain and one 
other. Ensign Wyman then shot the Indian dead, and Jonathan Prye with 
another scalped him. 

Finding no other Indians in the vicinity, the company returned, reaching the 
place where their packs had been left about ten o'clock. The Indians had re- 
moved the packs and, in numbers more than double theirs, immediately attacked 
the whites at the north end of the pond where there were few trees and little 
undergrowi;h. The Indians rose in front and rear, rushing upon them in two 
parties, three or four deep; and the whites hastened to meet them with muskets 
ready. When within a few rods both sides fired, and many Indians fell at the 
first discharge, although few if any of the whites were hit. The Indians then 
fell back three or four rods while several rounds were fired, during which Cap- 
tain Lovewell, Sergeant Fulham, and several others were killed, and three 
whites were wounded. The Indians then attempted to surround the whites, 
who retreated in good order to the pond, by which their rear was protected, 
with one flank resting on the brook. Here the Indians, holding up ropes, asked 
if the whites would accept terms for surrender, but were answered that they'd 
have no quarter except at the muzzles of their guns. The fight was now re- 
sumed and obstinately continued on both sides until near sunset. In the dusk 
that followed the Indians retired, it was thought, with not more than twenty 
of their number uninjured, leaving the field to the whites. 

About midnight the survivors assembled. They found nine of the company 
not seriously injured, and these with eleven badly wounded, who were yet able 
to travel, weakened by fasting since morning, and without food or blankets for 
their return, started for the fort. Several fell out by the way from exhaustion, 
and those that reached the fort found it deserted. One of the 34 ran away at 
the beginning of the fight, and, on reaching the fort, gave such an account of 
the slaughter of his comrades as to lead the garrison to abandon the fort, and 
return in great haste to their homes, leaving nothing behind for the sustenance 
of their comrades. Some of the survivors that had been wounded, and were 
without food after Saturday morning, reached home on Wednesday; others fell 
out by the way and were never heard from. 

When news of the disaster reached the colony, Colonel Tyng with a company 
of soldiers visited the battle-ground, and buried 12 of Captain Lovewell's com- 
pany, marking the initials of each on a tree nearest to his grave. The Indians 
had returned and scalped all of these but one, Jacob Fulham, who, wearing a 
black coat, was supposed to have been spared by the Indians as a Medicineman 
(Clergyman). The dead savages had all been removed or buried, but the 
graves of three were found and opened by the soldiers, the scalps of these being

removed. One was recognized as Paugiis, a Chief, known to have been killed 
by John Chamberlin. 

The result of this fight was so disastrous to the Sosois tribe that their power 
was broken, and they afterwards gave the settlers little trouble. The pond 
and the brook near which the fight occurred have since received the name of 
Lovewell. The trees on which were inscribed the initials of the heroes that 
fell there have long ago disappeared, but a rugged monument, erected near the 
spot, June 17, 1904, by the Society of Colonial Wars, records their names and 
exploits; and an inscription lately has been engraved on one side of a new 
granite slab erected in memory of his father Francis, commemorative of this 
second ancestor of the family in America. Jacob Fulham, of Weston, Mass. 

The following extract from "White's Early History of New England," page 
102, relates to his conduct in Lovewell's Fight: "Mr. Jacob Fulham, who was 
an oflficer, and an only son, distinguished himself with much bravery. One of 
the first that was killed, was by his right hand, and when ready to encounter 
a second shot, it is said that he and his adversary fell at the very instant by 
each other's shot." 

In "Drake's History of Middlesex County, Ms.," — page 492, is the following: — 
"At the famous Lovewell's Fight, ... at Pigwacket (Fryeburg) Me. May 8, 
1725, Jacob Fulham, who was a Sergeant in Captain Lovewell's Company, was 
killed, *A Sergeant named Fulham, and an Indian distinguished by his dress 
and activity, singled out each the other, and both fell, mutually slain by their 
antagonist's weapon.' This Jacob Fulham was the eldest son of Major Francis 
Fulham." 

Palfrey's History of New England — full edition — Vol. IV. p. 443, has this from 
an old song: 

"Young Fulham too I'll mention, because he fought so well, 
Endeavouring to save a man, a sacrifice he fell." 

Soon after the battle a book was published in Boston entitled "Historical 
Memoirs of the Late Fight at Piggwacket, with a SERMON Occasioned by the 
Fall of the Late Capt. John Lovewell and Several of his Valiant Company, in 
the late Heroic Action there. Pronounced at Bradford, May 16, 1725 By 
Thomas Symmes, V. D. M. The Second Edition Corrected . . . 1725." A copy 
of this book once owned by Judge Francis Fulham, father of Jacob, and now the 
property of the Author, is the principal authority from which this account is 
taken, with quotations.

11 (III.) FRANCIS FULHAM (7) of Fitchbiirg, Ms., son of Jacob and Tabitha 
(Whitney) Fulham (6), b. in Weston, Mar. 31, bap. Apr. 4, 1717; owned ye 
covenant Nov. 18, 1736; d. in Fitchburg Feb. 8, 1807; m. Dec. 15, 1740, SUSANNA 
HAMMOND, b. June 29, 1724; o. c. July 2, 1741; received into Weston Church 
Dec. 3. 1741. "Susanna Fulham w. of Fr: — remd." from Weston Ch.. — no date; 
dau. of Eleazer and Hannah (Harrington) Hammond, of Newton, Ms. After 
the death of his father young Francis became a member of the family of his 
grandfather Fulham, guardian of Jacob's children, and lived with him until his 
marriage, the other children living with their mother. From this association 
he received the pseudonym "Young Judge," and he was called Judge as long as 
he lived. In the distribution of Jacob Fulham's property, Apr. (7) 18, 1740, 
the Probate Court assigned all the real estate in Weston to "His eldest son 
Francis Fulham"; and on the same date, "Francis Fulham Jr. of Weston" ex- 
ecuted a mortgage of this estate to John Rice of Sudbury, and Daniel Livermore, 
to secure them for signing a bond of 330 pounds to the Probate Court, condi- 
tioned for the payment by Francis, within twelve months, "to the other children 
of the said Dec's'd, — viz. Jacob, Tabitha, & Elisha, Each, the sum of One hun- 
dred & nine Pounds six shillings & ten Pence & 3-5ths of a Penny; for their 
Shares of the said Estate: as also to pay the Charges of this Settlement — being 
L 3-5-6." The other realty was sold by the administratrix. 

On his marriage in the following December he went to live at the homestead 
of his father adjoining that of Judge Fulham on the east, where he remained 
until after the birth of his second child. He apparently took his family to 
Fitchburg before the birth of his third child; and the records indicate that his 
third, fourth, and fifth children were born there; but, by deed dated "Mar. 27, 
1747, . . Francis Fulham Jun. husbandman of Weston," in consideration of 370 
pounds, conveyed "My Mansion House and Barn and Homestall lying in said 
W^eston by estimation Eighty acres"; and a second tract, "Bounded Easterly with 
the land of Francis Fulham Esqr. . . . Containing by Estimation twenty-four 
acres, . . . Excepting a Reserve of twelve acres of land" at the Southerly end of 
the last described. By deed dated "May 18, 1748, Francis Fulham, Yeoman, of 
Weston" for the consideration of 490 pounds, conveyed "Twelve acres by measure- 
ment," the "Reserve" in the first deed, and his last real estate in Weston. The 
records indicate that his last two children were born in Lancaster, but in a suit 
at Charlestown, Jan. 1749, he is described as "Francis Fulham, a husbandman of 
Bolton in the County of Worcester." An original muster roll, and the "Military 
Annals of Lancaster," — p. 35, both describe him as of Bolton in 1755. Bolton 
now contains about 1000 inhabitants, and was then unorganized; it adjoins Lan- 
caster, organized in 1752; and these births, recorded there, may have occurred 
in Bolton. The deed of gift in 1754 of the Fitchburg farm, from Judge Fulham 
to his grandson Francis, still describes him as of Bolton; and there is nothing 
to indicate when he settled in Fitchburg, the first record of him there being of 
his election to an office in 1769. He died on the farm given him by his grand- 
father, on the west side of "Oak Hill" south and in sight of the electric rail- 
road in West Fitchburg, the same on which his son Jacob afterwards lived and 



FULHA^I. 31 

died, and which has been in the occupancy of his descendants to the present 
time, his great-grandson Francis Levi Fulham living there at the last account. 
It is said in "Proceedings of the Fitchburg Historical Society," Vol. 2, p. 51, 
that, "This is the only instance among the whole number of original settlers 
where the homestead has remained in the family from the date of incorporation 
of the town until the present time." 

Francis Fulham 2d, like his father and his grandfather, was a large and a very 
powerful man; and he possessed a keen wit. There is no evidence that his 
owning the covenant, the first step towards membership, was followed by his 
admittance to the church. At Charlestown, Sep. 7, 1750, he pleaded guilty to a 
charge of assaulting James Chandler, a Constable, in the execution of his office 
in Concord; and he was fined five shillings at Harvard, Mar. 13, 1756, before 
"Peter Atherton, Esq., one of his majesty's Justices of the Peace," for "Swearing 
one profane oath." He was a soldier of the French and Indian Wars, in "The 
company of Capt. Samuel Hunt on the Expedition against Crown Point" in 
1755, as appears in Military Annals of Lancaster, — p. 35. In Vol. 94, p. 63, of 
the "Military Archives of Massachusetts" a muster roll shows that this service 
was from Aug. 26, to Dec. 13, 15 weeks, 5 days, in Col. Willard's Regt. He was 
also a soldier of the Revolution. He enlisted June 1, 1778 for one year, and the 
original muster rolls in Mass. Arch., show that this service was in Capt. Ben- 
jamin Edgell's Co., of Col. Jacob's Regt. In one of these rolls he is described 
as of Westminster, an adjoining town near his home, where he probably enlisted. 

Francis Fulham 2d lived to be nearly 90 years old, and it is related that, 
when an old man, having a small dog trained in bear-hunting to impede the 
progress of bruin by nipping him behind, and retreating when the bear turned on 
him; he was induced to join a hunt, taking the dog with him on horseback to 
drive the bear from a swamp in which he had found refuge. The dog soon 
started the bear, and, by barking, indicated his position. The master, anxious 
for the safety of his dog, kept as near as possible; and, when the dog drove the 
bear near to the edge of the swam^p, his master was near. By some misfortune 
preventing retreat, when the bear turned, the dog was caught in sight of the 
old man, who, hastily dismounting, rushed unarmed to the rescue. Bruin, after 
the manner of bears, had risen on his haunches to hug the dog, when the oM 
man caught him by the cheeks from behind, and held the bear until he was shot 
by a hunter that had approached meantime. 8 chil., b. 1, 2, in Weston; 6, in

Judge Francis Fulham, Dec. 12, 1757, bequeathed 4L. to "Hannah Relict of Jacob 
Fulham, of Needham"; and as no children are mentioned, he probably died with- 
out issue. He was a soldier of the French and Indian Wars, and probably died 
in the army or soon after his discharge "sick." The following appears in the 
Mass. Archives.

22 (III.) Lieut. ELISHA FULHAM (10) of Harvard, Ms., son of Jacob and 
Tabitha (Whitney) Fulham (6), b. in Weston, 49 days after his father's death,

vard; dau. of William and Mary (Flagg) Hagar of Waltham, Ms. He m. 2d, 
after August. 1777, Mrs. Elizabeth Knight. After the birth of his first two 
children, and probably in the spring of 1748, he moved from Weston to Harvard; 
and by deed dated "Sept. 5, 1748," "Elisha Fulham of Harvard" bought of Samuel 
Hunt, his step-father, for 600 pounds, "old tenor," a tract of "46 acres, one 
quarter, and 36 rods" in Harvard, adjoining other lands of Samuel Hunt. "Mar. 



FULHAM. 33 

5, 1750" he bought of Edmund Powers small additions to this tract for 10 pounds; 
and on the same date he conveyed to Edmund Powers "3 acres and 30 rods" 
from the southern extremity of his first purchase, for 10 pounds. His third and 
fourth children were born in Harvard, but before the birth of the fourth child, 
by deed dated "Oct. 10, 1751," "Elisha Fulham of Weston, Yeoman," for 68 
pounds, bought of Isaac Brown 12 acres of woodland adjoining the estate of 
Judge Fulham in Weston, the same sold by his brother Francis to Brown by 
deed dated May 18, 1748; this was the first recorded purchase by Elisha in 
Weston. The description of Elisha Fulham as then of Weston perhaps indicates 
only a design to change his residence to that town, effected on the sale by deed 
dated Nov. 21, 1752, for 100 pounds 13 s. 4 d., from "Elisha Fulham of Harvard" to 
Jonas Peirce, of the Harvard land; and the removal of the family to Weston. He 
probably lived with or near his grandfather Fulham, then about 82 years old 
and without other descendants near him, as long as Judge Fulham lived. He 
was Executor and residuary legatee under his grandfather's will, and, after 
settling the estate, he remained in Weston, holding some offices, the last that 
of Constable in 1763. In 1764 a polltax was assessed against him in Weston. 
Mar. 26, 1760, Elisha Fulham, for 48 pounds, deeded to Benjamin Jones a lot in 
Weston containing about 11 acres, and a lot containing about 4 acres on Sudbury 
line. July 20, 1761, he executed a mortgage for 133 pounds, discharged July 
24, 1765, on 65 acres. Apr. 13, 1765, for "466 L. 13s. 4d., Elisha Fulham of Wes- 
ton," deeded to Joseph Roberts, Jr., Gentleman, the "Farm in Weston where 
Francis Fulham lately dwelt," containing about 142 acres. And on Apr. 22, 1765, 
"Elisha Fulham of Weston" bought of Samuel Pool, for 280 pounds, 106 acres in 
the south part of Fitchburg, described as "Laid out for a Third division all in 
one entire piece, laid out at a place originally called Monoosunk, upon James 
Burbeau's right . . . being the same land on which ye said Samuel now dwells;" 
likewise "Another piece of land lying in Leominster . . . containing by estima- 
tion 8 acres & 16 poles." Both said pieces of land bordered on "Monoosunk 
Brook." There is no record of the purchase of other lands in Fitchburg by him, 
and the other lots that he conveyed away, probably, were from the estate of his 
grandfather. One June 20, 1768, Elisha Fulham executed a mortgage for 300 
pounds on his farm, to Thomas Leggatt of Leominster, — discharged July 10, 
1770. the date of the sale. On Oct. 30, 1765, for 22 pounds, he deeded to Josiah 
Coolidge, Jr., of Fitchburg, husband of his sister Tabitha, "A tract of Land in 
Fitchburg aforesaid containing 50 acres bounded Southeasterly on Caleb's Farm 
(so called) and Common Land; Southwesterly on land of Rev. Aaron W^hitte- 
more; Northwesterly on my own land; and Northeasterly on Francis Fulham's 
land; with the appurtenances. Reserving to me and my heirs a way this the 
same two rods wide where the way is now trod." Francis Fulham named in this 
deed was the eldest brother of Elisha. 

At a town meeting in Fitchburg, Nov. 21, 1765, "Voted & Chose Elisha Fulham 
a Committee Man to Join with Capt. David Goodrich & Capt. Thos. Cowdin to 
take the care & Build a Meeting House in Sd Town " He was chosen a "Dear 
Reave" Mar. 1, 1766; and the same year he was chosen with two others "for to 



34 FULHAM. 

get a minister to preach." Mar. 7, 1768, Elisha Fulham was chosen a "High- 
way Collector" and a "tithing man"; and in 1768 and 1769 he was a "Hogreave." 
After this his name does not appear in the records of Fitchburg. On July 10, 
1770, for 307 pounds Elisha Fulham of Fitchburg, by two deeds to Ebenezer 
Woods of Groton, apparently sold all his real estate in Fitchburg. The first 
deed conveyed 129 acres by estimation, "Being the same land on which the said 
Elisha now dwells"; and the Leominster Land, "8 a & 16 poles." The second 
deed, for 20 pounds, conveys "a Certain Saw Mill the Stream and Land thereto 
belonging which Lyeth and is situated in Fitchburg aforesaid known by the 
name of Pool's Mill, the one half of which Mill with the privileges of the same 
with the Stream and Conveniencys thereunto belonging I am now possessed of." 

Elisha Fulham then became a resident of Harvard again. He bought by auc- 
tion Jan. 29, 1771, of Oliver Whitney — Admr. land in Harvard, which he con- 
veyed on the same day to Oliver Whitney, and in both deeds he is described as 
of Harvard. His residence was thereafter in Harvard. In "Nourse's History 
of Harvard," p. 399, it is said that: "Elisha Fulham or Seth Gould at his fulling 
shop on Nonacoicus Brook, finished the various fabricks that came from the 
Harvard Looms," in 1771. A division of Harvard into school districts in 1790, 
places the "Middle School opposite to a great Rock a little above Mr. Elisha 
Fulham's Cyder Mill on the East side of the way," — p. 369; and these two pas- 
sages furnish the only known indication as to his property and employment in 
Harvard. 

In Mass. Archives, Vol. 95, p. 277, Elisha Fulham's name appears in a list of 
Capt. Elisha Jones's trainband of Weston, dated April 18, 1757. In Nourse's 
History, — p. 313, it is said that in 1774, "The Alarm List included all the able- 
bodied male citizens between sixteen and sixty-five years of age. The Minute 
Men were picked soldiers, especially skilled in arms, and bound to hold them- 
selves in readiness for service at a minute's notice. They numbered about one- 
third of the whole Alarm List and formed a regiment of themselves." — p. 313. 
"The Colonel-elect of the Lancaster regiment of Minute Men was John Whitcomb 
of Bolton. . . . The Colonel-elect of the Lancaster militia regiment was Asa 
Whitcomb of Lancaster, brother of John." — p. 314. "March 7, 1775, . . . After 
some debate, the Town voted and Chose a Committee to Draw up proposals for 
the Town's acceptance, which might be thought an Honorable Gratuity to be- 
stow upon the Minute Company, as a Reward for their pains, and to incorage 
them in their industry to learn military Exercises, namely Messures Joseph 
Wheeler, Joseph Fairbanks, Simon Whitney, Jonathan Davis, Elisha Fulham. 
Said Committee having made Report to the Town, the Town voted an acceptance 
thereof. Nevertheless Capt. Jonathan Davis, leder of said Minute Company, 
having imbodyed his noble soldiers, they Returned their Thanks to the Select- 
men, for the town's Generosity to them, but Declared that as they had inlisted 
Volentears so they do and will Remain Volentears, neither accepting nor dis- 
pising what the Town had Voted for them."— p. 314. The Harvard men who 
sprang to arms at the Lexington Alarm and Marched to Cambridge Were as 
follows: —

Jona. Davis, Lt. Elisha Fulham, and Jacob Fulham, all of Harvard. Jacob was 
Elisha Fulham's eldest son.

Lieut, of Capt. Davis's Co.; and a later one — Mil. Officers, &c. 27-198, describes 
him as Lieut, of Edmund Bemis's Co. of the Worcester County Regiment. 

In Nourse's History of Harvard, p. 193, it is said that, after enlarging the 
seating capacity of the meeting-house, the seats were allotted "On Dignity ac- 
cording to what they paid to the minister, real and personal estate the last three 
years past ... In the seventh seat below . . . Elisha Fulham:" This was May 
21, 1750, during his first residence in Harvard. 

As related in Nourse's History, there was a considerable settlement of 
Shakers in Harvard in 1782, "Mother Ann Lee" being there, and "During August 
large numbers of believers from all the country, even from a hundred miles 
away, came to Harvard and assembled at the Square House. On Sunday the 
eighteenth of that month, this throng of Shakers, in the words of their annalist: 
. . . 'Went forth with great zeal, and worshipped God with singing, dancing, 
leaping, shouting, clapping of hands, and such other exercises as they were led 
into by the Spirit. . . . But the sound of this meeting, though joyful to the 
believers, was terrible to the wicked; for the sound thereof was heard at the 
distance of several miles — .' 

"The next morning very early a mob began to collect about the Square House, 
and rapidly increased until three or four hundred had assembled. The leaders 
of the crowd were Capt. Phineas Farnsworth, Lieutenant Jonathan Pollard, 
Isaiah Whitney, Jonathan Houghton, Asa Houghton, Elisha Fulham, etc. They 
soon announced their purpose, which was to drive the non-resident believers 
out of town. One hour was given them for breakfast and preparation for the 
march, at the end of which time the procession was formed. The male be- 
lievers were compelled to walk, but the females were allowed to ride the horses 
belonging to them. The mob escorted them half in front and half in rear. 
Having advanced about three miles a halt was called and James Sheperd, an 
Englishman, was scourged with switches cut by the wayside. Ann Lee, James 
Whittaker, and others had the previous week gone to Abel Jewett's, in Littleton, 
and thence to Woburn, thus escaping the wrath of these enfuriated men, which 



36 FULHAM. 

was especially violent towards those of English birth. The march continued to 
Lancaster, ten miles from the Square House, and was 'one continuous scene of 
cruelty and abuse.' The believers from other places were dismissed at Lan- 
caster with warning never to appear in Harvard again, and the mob returned 
guarding a number of the resident Shakers who had persisted in accompanying 
their brethren. Reaching Captain Pollard's the first house after crossing the 
Harvard and Bolton line, a ring was formed and Abijah Worcester was stripped 
and whipped for the crime of 'going about and breaking up churches and 
families." When Jonathan Houghton, one of the two chosen to inflict the stripes, 
had finished his ten, and Elijah Priest was about to complete the allotted num- 
ber of twenty, James Haskell, a respectable citizen of Harvard, chanced to ride 
up, and seeing what had been done, dismounting, stripped off his coat and 
offered to take the remaining stripes. At this the company, ashamed, released 
Worcester, who went singing on his way." (Other similar proceedings after- 
wards, are described in this history, in which Elisha Fulham seems to have been 
one of the most zealous leaders). 

"A few of the brethren who witnessed these acts of madness lived to a great 
age, and were wont to tell — their voices thrilling with reverential awe — how 
God had requited the sins of the merciless; how Elisha Fulham had dropped 
dead by his own hearth-stone." . . . There is no other account of his death.

FULHAM. 37 

Abigail Chapman, b. in 1755, who survived him. He lived in Sterling where 
he was married, and in Fitchbiirg until 1798, when he removed with his sons to 
Cavendish, where he remained until 1818, when he went to live with his son 
Sewall in Reading, where he died. He was buried with his deceased wives in 
the old cemetery on Twenty Mile Stream, near his Cavendish home. The family 
graves were arranged in the following order: Beginning with three headstones 
at the highest point of the hill and extending south in one line, Ebenezer Ful- 
ham — 99, Abigail (Styles) Fulham — 99, Maria Fulham — 105, Clark Fulham — 
113, Mehetabel (Belcher) Harris— 150, Timothy Fulham — 32, Elisabeth (Thomp- 
son) Fulham — 32, Sarah (Austin French) Fulham — 32. He was a soldier of the 
Revolution, and marched from Fitchburg to Cambridge in "Capt. Ebenezer 
Bridge's Co. of Col. John Whitcomb's Regt. of Minute Men," on the Lexington 
Alarm, "Serv. 16 ds.; Returned home May 5, 1775." — Lex. Alarm Roll, 11-240. 
He was with Washington at Cambridge 8 months and in "The Jerseys" 6 months. 
He was Orderly Sergeant of "Capt. John Joslin's Co., Col. Job Cushing's Regt. 
1 m. 7 d. — Leominster — Marched to Bennington last of July 1777 to join Col. 
Seth Warner by order of Council."— V. S.— 20, p. 123; and was in the battle 
Aug. 16, in which Fay & Josselyn, standing next him, the one on his right and 
the other on his left, were shot dead at about the same time. After the battle 
he found on the field the roll of a Hessian Company engaged there; this and a 
turned wooden quart bottle, barrel shaped, carried by him through his service in 
the army, are valued possessions of his great-grandson, the Author. He owned 
a farm in that part of Fitchburg then known as "Pogedon," and, when he re- 
turned from the war, his last cow had been sold for taxes, there being no money 
of value with which to pay them, excepting that in the possession of the rich 
who had hoarded the gold and silver. 

Although baptized "At ye house — being weak and ill" on the 9th day, as neces- 
sary to his soul's salvation; he became a man of large size, once weighing 240 
pounds; and possessed great physical strength. When an old man, his grandson 
Sewall saw him at a "Raising," — while other men on the ground each were 
splitting a board or two from a stock of the size of the log from which they had 
been sawn, and raising them to men on the frame for a temporary flooring, — 
lift from the ground one end of a whole stock, place it on his shoulder, hitch 
it along until it balanced there, and carry it to the frame, where he stood it up 
within reach of men above saying: "There boys, take that upl" Another old 
man standing by exclaimed: "I declare, Granther Fulham! if I's as stout as you 
I wouldn't keep n-oxen." He had a very retentive memory, was more than six- 
teen years old when Judge Fulham died, and related to his grandson Sewall 
many incidents in the history of that ancestor without the knowledge of which 
much of the early history of the family in this book could not have been writ- 
ten. He was religiously inclined, regularly saying grace before, and returning 
thanks after each meal at his own table, always in the same words. These re- 
peated in the hearing of his grandson Sewall, while a child, remained in his 
memory to his latest day; and were taken down from his lips by the Author 
seventy years after, thus: — 



38 FULHA^I. 

Grace before meat. -Our Father in heaven, v.-e bless thee that we are per- 
mitted to draw around thy board spread with the bounties of thy hand; pity and 
supplv all those destitute of the mercies we enjoy; may we spend the strength 
we hope to receive from these and all other mercies more to thy honor and glory 
than ever vet we have done; may we sit down in thy fear, eat and drmk to thy 
praise, and rise to thy glory; which favors we ask for Christ's sake." 

Returning thanks. "Most merciful God, we desire to return to thee our most 
humble and hearty thanks for the many mercies, favors, and blessings thou 
art bestowing upon us from one day and time to another. We thank thee that 
we have again been permitted to feed our poor, frail, and weak bodies upon 
another portion of thy common bounty. We pray that thou wilt go on m the 
wavs of thv mercies with us. Feed us with that bread of life which cometh 
down from heaven, and will stand by us when all these earthly enjoyments shall 
fade awav and fail us; which favors we ask for Christ's sake." 

These evidently are not the composition of Timothy Fulham, who had little 
opportunity for schooling in his youth; and it is conjectured that he learned 
them from Judge Fulham, a supposed descendant of the Surveyor of W^estmm- 
ster Abbey.

was one of five men from F. mustered into Capt. Joseph Parker's Co. July 18, 
1776, for service with the Northern Army at Ticonderoga; and in 1779 his name 
stands first in a list of three, constituting the Committee of Safety in F. After 
some years at the Perry farm, he settled on the "Fulham Homestead," part of 
282 acres o^med by him in 1798, when but three proprietors had more land in 
F. than he; and in 1793 only four persons paid more taxes there. He was of 
medium size, active habits, and rather irritable temperament. 10 chil. b. in F.

says that he went to C. from Westminster, Ms.; but no record of him is found 
there. The Proprietor's Record of Fitchburg, p. 244, contains, Dec. 30, 1773, 
"Laid out . . . 100 acres of Land in Fitchburg for a fourth division to Phinehas 
Fulham, Claimer, arising from House Lot number forty which belonged to 
Jeremiah Allen Esq. of Boston deceased." "Military Annals of Lancaster" p. 
164, gives the name of Phinehas Fulham as a member of "Capt. Eph. Stearns' 
Co. Col. Ezra Wood's Regt." a "Reinforcement to Cont. Army. 1778"; and the 
Mass. Archives show that he served as a Corporal "part of May and month of 
June 1778, . . . Enl. June 28, 1778 — disch. January 31, 1779 — 7 mos. 15 days," 
with troops "Raised by Resolve of April 20, 1778, for defense of North River." 
Nourse's History of Harvard, p. 336, names Phinehas Fulham with nine others 
from that town "In Col. Ezra Wood's regiment at Ticonderoga, from May to 
December, 1778." The "History of Chesterfield"— p. 318, says that he bought 
lot No. 5, in the 7th range Apr. 23, 1778. But as he was with Mass. troops until 
Mar. 30, 1779, he probably settled in Chesterfield after that date. 6 chil. b. in

work. He was very athletic, would go on foot from West Fitchburg to Boston 
between sunrise and sunset, about 44 miles, without fatigue, whenever he had

CLARK (Barrett), b. May 27, 1766; d. Feb. 23, 1852. He was the largest of the 
family whose size is recorded, being 6 ft. 6 in. tall, and weighing 275 pounds. 
He had six daughters, the shortest of whom was 5 ft. 8 in. tall, and weighed 250 
lbs. At the age of 15 he enlisted in Capt. Josselyn's Co., of which his brother 
Timothy was Orderly Sergeant, in Col. Job. Cushing's Regt. that marched to 
Bennington, Vt., the last of July, 1777, as stated in Mass. Arch., Various Serv- 
ices, 20-123, where he is said to have been from Leominster; and he was in the 
battle of Aug. 16. Timothy related of him that, in this campaign, being ex- 
cused from duty on account of diarrhoea, Oliver met one that proclaimed himself 
to be the best man in the regiment, and fought and whipped him; whereupon 
he was pronounced by the Surgeon fit for duty. The Pension Office records show 
two other enlistments of Oliver Fulham before 1780, his residence being given as 
Fitzwilliam, N. H., of which 8 mos. was in Capt. Ephraim Stearns's Co. of Col. 
Ezra Wood's regt.; and three years in Capt. John Lilley's Co. of Col. Crane's 
Regt., in all 45 months. His last service is said to have been in the Artillery. 
"The Military Annals of Lancaster," p. 256, mentions Corp. Oliver Fulham, en- 
listed for 4 mos. from Feb. 23. 1787, served to May 31, in Capt. Nathaniel Bea- 
man"s company, of Col. Newell's regiment. This service was against the Shays 
Rebellion. His application for pension is dated Apr. 4, 1818; and he received

(Hagar) Fulham (22), b. in Harvard, Feb. 4, 1750; d. Oct. 20, 1833 in L.; m. 
Dec. 7, 1777, ELIZABETH WHITCOMB (Houghton) of L., widow of Rufus 
Houghton; and dau. of ]\Iaj. Gen. John and Beckey (Whitcomb) Whitcomb: b. 
Nov. 9, 1752; d. Feb. 5, 1818. Gen. Whitcomb was of the fourth generation in 
descent from John Whetcomb, one of the original proprietors of Lancaster, Ms., 
who came from Dorchester, Eng., about 1633. He was born in that part of L. 
that became Bolton in 1738; was baptized Mar. 3, 1715; and died Nov. 17, 1785. 
At an early age he went out with scouting parties sent in search of predatory 
bands of Indians that infested outlying settlements of Mass.; and he is supposed 
to have been one of those composing the companies enlisted near Lancaster that 
went with Col. Samuel Willard and took part in the siege of Louisburg in 1745. 
His name appears with the title of Lieut, in a roll of men sent from Lancaster 
in pursuit of marauding Indians three years later, when he was the foremost 
citizen of Bolton. For many years he held some of the more important offices 
of that town, and in 1748 he was elected to the Great and General Court, but re- 
fused to act. He afterwards held the office of representative for some twenty 
years, and in 1754 he was appointed a Justice of the Peace. At the breaking out 
of the French and Indian War he became Lieut. Col. of a regiment raised by Col. 
Samuel Willard, Jr., for the first expedition against Crown Point. He was in the 
battle of Lake George; after the death of Col. Willard he was promoted, Oct. 
27, to the colonelcy; and he led the regiment home at the end of the campaign. 
John Whitcomb was Lieut. Col., his brother Asa being a Captain, in Col. Jonathan 
Bagley's regiment which made the victorious charge on the French advance 
guard near Ticonderoga. July 5, 1758, in which Lord Howe was killed. He was 
in command of one of the five Mass. regiments, with 18 companies and about 
800 men, that set out from Crown Point in batteaux, Aug. 10, 1760, for the in- 
vasion of Canada. 

When King George in 1768 demanded that :Mass. Representatives rescind the 
circular letter sent by them to the Colonial Assemblies, John Whitcomb was 
one of the 92 that voted not to rescind. In 1773 he was elected to the Council, 
but declined the honor preferring to remain in the House of Rep. At the Lex- 
ington Alarm, John Whitcomb was Col. of a regiment of Minute Men in Wor- 



42 FULIIAM. 

cester Co.; and, living some miles nearer Concord than the company command- 
ers, he sent the necessary orders to his subordinates, and, hastening with the 
force at hand, took part in the bloody conflict of the day, although the principal 
part of the regiment, some thirty miles away, did not arrive until the day fol- 
lowing. The Journal of the Provincial Congress of Mass., held at the Meeting 
House in Watertown, May 31, 1775, at page 326, shows that John Whitcomb was 
chosen First Major General, his commission to date June 21; and that "The 
President delivered to Gen. Whitcomb a commission as Major General of the 
Massachusetts Army." Probably on account of his age and modesty, Gen. Whit- 
comb accepted this appointment only temporarily. During June 17th he held 
with some forces Lechmere Point where an attack was expected, but the British 
failing to recognize the strategic value of the position, did not attack it, an 
omission that afterwards induced unfavorable comment on their generalship. 
In selecting general officers, June, 1775, the Continental Congress did not name 
John Whitcomb, and he took no further part in the siege of Boston; but he was 
commissioned a Brigadier General in the Continental Army, June 5, 1775; and 
Washington declared his intention to assign him to the command of the forces 
in Mass.; but Gen. Whitcomb returned the commission asking "to be excused on 
account of age and diffidence of not being able to answer the expectations of 
Congress." The following month he was elected to the Council of which he 
remained a member four years, and then he sought the retirement of his home. 

The Military Annals of Lancaster — p: 113, has: "Harv. & Lex. Alarm Roll, 
164 Men. Capt. Jona. Davis's Co. of Minute Men, Col. John Whitcomb's Regt. 
. . . Priv. Jacob Fnlham." Mass. Arch. Rev. Rolls, Vol. 12, p. 36, has, "Capt. 
Jona. Davis's Muster Roll in Col. John Whitcomb's Regiment of Minute Men 
marched on the Alarm April ye 19, 1775, from Harvard Thirty Miles to Cam- 
bridge." Jacob Fulham's marriage to Gen. Whitcomb's daughter occurred less 
than three years thereafter. Gen. Whitcomb's brother Asa was a Colonel, and 
Jacob Fulham's later services may have been in his regiment. Mass. Arch. Vol. 
14, p. 70, has "Jacob Fulham — Private — Capt. Davis's Co. — Col. Whitcomb's 
Regt. Oct. 6, 1775 — Harvard — 8 ms." He was granted a pension of $27.26 a year, 
Jan. 14, 1833. 

The records of Worcester Co. show that the name of Jacob Fulham appears 
between 1785 and 1836, 41 times as grantee, and 27 times as grantor. His will 
dated Oct. 16, 1833, contains a bequest to his son Jacob Fulham, Jr., of certain

90 (IV.) ELISHA FULHAM, Jr. (26), a farmer of Penfield, N. Y., son of Elisha 
and Sarah (Hagar) Fulham (22), b. in Harvard, Ms., Feb. 25, 1752; d. May 20, 
1824, in P., where an inscription on his tombstone gives his age as 72 years; m. 
July 27, 1774, MARY WILLARD, b. June 1, 1756; dau. of Hezekiah, Jr., and 
Lydia (Haskell) Willard, of Harvard. The descent of Mary is traced in the 
"Willard Genealogy" from Richard of Horsmonden, Eng., buried (Feb. 20) 
Mar. 2, 1617; and his wife Margery: through "Symc ," bap. Apr. (7) 17, 1605, 
who came to America, lived in Concord and Lancaster, Ms., and was known as 
Col. Simon Willard; and his wife Mary Sharp: Henry, their son, b. in Concord

Fulham (6) Parkhurst. The Willard coat of arms in England was, Argent on 
chevron sable between 3 fish weels proper, 5 ermine spots. Crest a griffin's 
head erased or, Motto, Gaudet patentia duris; probably referring to the business 
of fishing. Elisha m. 2d, Mrs. ABIGAIL NICHOLS, d. May 30, 1823, aet. 62, 
in Penfield, the mother of Ardella and Nelson. It is supposed that the first 
child was born in Harvard, but no record of Elisha later than his marriage is 
found there. He was very strong, and was the champion wrestler when such 
contests occurred in connection with meetings of the militia on training-day in 
early times. He and many of his descendants were full of wit and fun, and great 
story tellers. 

A letter from Jacob Fulham — 188, of Leominster, Mass., son of Jacob Fulham — 
83, the elder brother of Elisha Fulham — 90, written May 31, 1850, to Sewall 
Fulham — 277, now in the possession of the Author, has this as to Elisha Fulham 
— 90: — "Concerning my uncle Elisha Fulham's family I have information by a 
townsman of mine that he is dead but left one son named Elisha. There was 
quite a number of daughters but I don't recollect any of their names. You 
forgot the state he lived in, it's New York State, in the town of Penfield, 6 miles 
east of Rochester." This letter establishes the identity of Elisha Fulham — 90, 
with him whose birth is recorded in Harvard, Mass., before uncertain. 

Nourse's History of Harvard, p. 321, records that "The Second Worcester 
regiment, with the commander, Colonel Josiah Whitney, took part in the opera- 
tions in Rhode Island, and included . . . from Harvard, serving with Capt. 



44 FULHAM. 

Manasseh Sawyer, in July, August, and September, 1778, . . . Elisha Fulham/' 
In Mass. Arch. Var. Serv. 20-77, appears: "Elisha Fulham-Private-Capt 
Samuel Hill's Co., Col. Josiah Whitney's Regt. En. Oct. 2, 1777-Dis. Oct 26, 
1777 24 days— Harvard-under Lt. Col. Ephraim Sawyer—." 22-207, EUsha 
Fulham-Private-Capt. Manasseh Sawyer's Co. Josiah Whitney's Regt. En- 
listed July 30 1778—1 m. 15 ds. Service performed in Rhode Island." N. H. 
State Papers, Rev. Rolls, p. 24, has: "Elisha Fulham private disch. July 9, 1777, 
12 days in service. Whole amount of pay 3, 15, 2." The last service, apparently 
with New Hampshire troops, after the birth of his first child, indicates a change 
of residence to New Hampshire, perhaps to Walpole, but nothing definite is known 
of Elisha Fulham after this until he lived in Otsego County, N. Y. Oct. G, 1794, 
Elisha Fulham and another conveyed to Benoni Adams 100 acres, part of lot 
49 Otsego Patent, but no record is found of the conveyance of this to him. He 
subscribed to the erection of an academy in Cooperstown, Otsego County, in 
1795- and on Sep. 27, 1799, he conveyed to "Jonas Hodgekins" all the goods, 
household stuffs, implements, and furniture, together with the grain, corn, and 
hay and also the stock of cattle mentioned in the schedule annexed, situate in 
the town of Otsego, County of Otsego; and it is thought that he removed thence 
to Penfield, in Monroe County, then part of Ontario County, N. Y. By deed 
dated Apr. 20, 1809, Cons. $315.05, Rec. Lib. 24, p. 226, Oct. 2, 1815, Elisha Fulham 
bought of Daniel Penfield, 55 acres 63 rods of the east part of lot 38, T. 13, R. 4, 
in the town of Boyle, Ontario Co., N. Y., adjoining land of "George Postle." By 
deed dated Aug. 31, 1815, Con. $21.13, Rec. Lib. 24, p. 225, Elisha Fulham bought 
of Daniel Penfield, 5 a. 53 r. of the north part of lot 38, township 13, range 4, in 
Ontario County, N. Y.; and this lot was conveyed by Elisha Fulham and Abigail 
his wife to Joseph Hatch by deed dated Mar. 9, 1816, Con. $300, Rec. Lib. 28. p.

110 (V.) Rev. SEWALL FULHAM (34), of Reading, Vt., son of Timothy and 
Elisabeth (Thompson) F\ilham (32), b. in Sterling, Ms., Mar. 2, 1773; d. Apr. 
27, 1842, in R.; m. Mar. 2, 1798, MEHETABEL HARRIS (155), b. in Sharon, Ms., 
July 6, 1777; d. Sep. 24, 1865, in R.; dau. of Josiah and Mehetabel (Belcher) 
Harris (150). When about a year old his father moved to Fitchburg, and the 
family lived there until after the marriage of Sewall, when with his father and 
his brother he removed to Cavendish, Vt. Mar. 25, 1807, he moved to R., where 
he lived until 1810; he then returned to C; and in 1815 he settled on his Reading 
farm where he remained the rest of his life. 

He was reared on a farm, and his opportunities for education were limited to 
the common schools; but he possessed an independent, logical mind, was an ex- 
tensive reader, and had a very retentive memory, and oratorical gifts, highly 
commended by his contemporaries in after years, which, in the judgment of his 
eldest son, under favorable conditions, would have made him eminent in his 
profession. He came to Vermont with little means, when its hills and valleys, 
generally, were covered with forests; but his great physical strength and activity 
abundantly qualified him to carve out a home in the wilderness. The first stage 
in this work was removing trees, and, besides what he did on his own farm, he 
was employed much in felling the forests of his neighbors. In this work he 
greatly excelled, and, with one Carpenter, who worked with him, he would 
measure off an acre in the morning, and, by partly severing a row of trees so 
that they would fall in the same direction, and finally causing the last to fall 
on the next so that the whole went down in orderly succession, they would finish 
their stint before night. His son told of seeing him pursue a big, wild steer 
around the barnyard in the first attempt to yoke him; the steer eluded him for 
a time, but finally, coming within reach, his father's hand darted out and grasped 
the tip of a horn, when the steer, unable to free himself, was soon subdued. 

Sewall Fulham was commissioned a Sergeant in the 4th regt., 2d brig., 7th 



46 FULliA.M. 

div., Mass. Militia at Ashbiirnham. Oct. 4, 1797. He was W. Master of a Masonic 
Lodge in Cavendish. He represented Reading in the legislature, 1816, '17, '18, 
'19, '20. And lor many years he was a trial Justice of the Peace. He was 
licensed a Methodist preacher June 1, 1811, and ministered to that church until 
Feb. 22, 1822, when he withdrew from the Methodists, and, in July following, 
he was ordained a Freewill Baptist Minister at Windsor, Vt. He was also an 
excellent singer. At the age of G9, while in robust health and with his natural 
strength unabated, he was attacked by a malady that had caused him much pre- 
vious suffering; a surgical operation was proposed for his relief, but he refused 
to submit to it, preferring to die; at his request he was borne out into an April 
shower to relieve his pain, and died, in great agony, with the respect and esteem 
of all that knew him. 

Mehetabel Harris, wife of Sewall Fulham, was his third cousin, by descent 
from Judge Francis Fulham, through Hannah his daughter; and, though of 
medium size, had muscular strength exceeding that of ordinary men. One of the 
earliest memories of her eldest son was seeing her take from the crane a 
cauldron kettle full of potatoes that had been cooked over the kitchen fire, and 
carry it away. She had a great memory and a remarkable aptness for public 
speaking. On one occasion while visiting her son in Ludlow, at the invitation of 
a neighbor, she accompanied his family to an evening meeting in the Baptist 
church, and spoke so as to electrify the assembly by her earnest and eloquent 
appeal in behalf of the Christian faith and life. In 1856 she visited a daughter, 
walking over the hills to the adjoining town of Ludlow. A fall, resulting in 
a fracture of the neck of a femur, detained her there through the winter. In 
the following spring, her recovery being complete, when nearly eighty years old, 
she walked six miles to her home in Reading, accompanied by her son-in-law, 
driving a flock of sheep to pasture with a horse and wagon, so that she might 
as well have ridden. She preferred to walk, and said she should have gone 
faster but for the slowness of the sheep. She was never lame afterwards; and, 
remaining an adherent of the Methodist Church, although her husband had been 
a clergyman of another denomination, she continued walking regularly more 
than a mile to church on Sundays until her last sickness. She died of an in- 
flammatory disease in her eighty-ninth year, with all her senses nearly perfect, 
and mental faculties as acute as in her maturity.

Dennison of C. He was graduated from Tufts College, 1865, and from 
Harvard College medical school, 1869. After a year of practice in Ver- 
mont, he settled in C, where he lived until his death. He was City 
Physician one year, and School Commissioner three years; and he was 
elected President of the Chicopee Medical Society in June, 1908. He 
was an unassuming man, very generous in a quiet way, and accustomed, 
for years, to add to the happiness of many by Christmas and Thanks- 
giving gifts. His successful career resulted from his unaided exertions 
only. His estate, estimated at $40,000, was bequeathed, about one- 
fourth to relatives and those that had served him; $200, to a society 
for the prevention of cruelty to animals; and the rest, in trust, for the 
benefit of poor old men and women, not paupers; and poor children 
with deformed feet or legs, that can be cured or relieved by operations, 
or careful treatment, or both, in his native town. His will asks that 
special care be taken that no unworthy person benefit by it. He was a 
Universalist, and, for want of a church of that faith in C, he attended 
the Unitarian Church. 1 chil.

Jonathan Farwell. He was in trade at Center Village, first with Hon. Levi Jack- 
son, then with Ashbel Wheeler, and finally alone. For some years he ran a 
freight boat on the river between C. and Hartford, Ct. He erected a saw- 
mill on Broad Brook, and operated it until its destruction by fire in July, 1853. 
He was Selectman in C, 1815. He was a good-looking man of great size and 
strength; and he was celebrated for feats with a rifle. It is related that, on 
one occasion, he went to a turkey-shooting, and, arriving late, found that on ac- 
count of the length of the range, little blood had been shed. He bought a pack- 
age of tickets, and, resting his rifie according to the regulations, won as many 
turkeys as he had shots. The owner of the fowls refused to set up more for him 
in that way, but proposed that, as Fulham had succeeded so well, he should 
shoot off another package of tickets without resting, to which Fulham agreed.

which he was not allowed to shoot again. 3 chil. b. in C.

returned to C, and rebuilt the mill. He was also a musician.

172 (V.) ABEL FULHAM (63), of Boston, Ms., son of Jacob and Lois (Park- 
hurst) Fulham (53), b. in Fitchburg, Dec. 3, 1799; d. Dec. 27, 1886, in B. He 
had little opportunity or inclination for schooling, and, before the war of 1812, 
he went to Boston to seek employment. He was at one time in the service of 
William Sullivan, for many years at the head of the Massachusetts Bar; he was 
afterwards in the employ of Daniel Webster; and, finally, he "hired out" to 
Nathan Hale, father of Edward Everett Hale, D. D., and, for many years, editor 
and proprietor of the "Boston Advertiser." As hired-boy and hired-man, he 
spent nearly seventy years in the service of the Hale Family. Dr. Hale writes 
of him: "He used to say that he held me in his arms before I was an hour old, 
and I do not doubt it is true. I have tried to describe him in a chapter of a 
little book of mine called 'A New England Boyhood.' He was loyal to the last 
degree, was affectionate, and had curious variety of resources which very much 
endeared him to such boys as we were in my father's house. He never used a 
profane or impure word while he was with us children. As he was to us an 
authority in all matters of gardening, of carpentry, of driving and the care of 
horses, we came to regard him as omniscient and omnipotent in certain lines." 
Dr. Hale has represented him in several of his stories, usually as "Fullum," as 
he persisted in spelling the name, and as it was spelled in Fitchburg, although 
urged by the Doctor to conform it to the spelling in general use. Dr. Hale 
writes: "Fullum is the character from which I made the study of Silas Ransom 
in my book called 'Philip Nolan's Friends,' and in another book of mine called 
'East and West.' " "Fullum" is also mentioned in Dr. Hale's "Memories of 
a Hundred Yeai^," in the first volume of which is a portrait of Abel Fulham 
drawn by Ellen D. Hale, a daughter of the Doctor. It appears from "A New 
England Boyhood" that the Hales supposed Abel Fulham to be much older than 
he was. The Doctor refers to him as "at once the Hercules and the Apollo of 
our boyhood"; but whether his age was estimated from his size and strength 
when he went to the Hales does not appear. He evidently was willing that they 
should think him older than he was. 

He seems to have inherited much of his father's ability to do and to endure. Dr. 
Hale says that he would sometimes wish to visit his friends in Fitchburg; would 
start from Boston in the evening; go on foot to the family home in West Fitch- 
burg, some forty-four miles, before morning; and return in the same way. His 
attachment to the Hales with whom he had spent most of his life continued to 
the end. His final call was at Dr. Hale's house, where he asked for "Mr. Ed- 



- FULHAM. 51 

ward," who was away; he then inquired for the Doctor's sisters, made his daily 
call on them, returned to his home, and never left it again.

June 4, 1886; dau. of Nathan and Artemisia (Babb) Seymour, of Webster, N. Y. 
His farm was ten miles east of Rochester, five miles south of Lake Ontario, 
and one mile from Webster Village. He was a very strong man, and showed 
family characteristics. Sewall Fulham — 277, once saw him at Rochester, and, 
in a letter written Apr. 16, 1868, says: "I once called on a distant relative in 
Rochester, N. Y., whom I had never seen. I found him and asked him if his 
name was Fulham; he said, 'yes,' and, after looking at me a moment, he said, 
'Your name is Fulham too.' — 'How do you know?' — 'Because you look precisely 
like my father.' " Sewall Fulham's likeness is at 277, and the descendants of 
Elisha Fulham — 90, on looking at it, if they have no portrait of this ancestor, 
perhaps may discover some resemblance to members of the family. A letter 
dated "Webster, Monroe Co., N. Y., July 21, 1847," from Nelson Fulham to Sewall 
Fulham, contains the names, dates of birth, death, and marriage of various 
descendants of Nelson's grandfather, corresponding, generally, with those in this 
volume; and some children that died young, whose names are now inserted 
without marginal numbers. He says: "I think my oldest half-sister has the 
Bible that had that record, she lives in Cattaraugus Co., N. Y., . . . I don't 
recollect of hearing Father say anything about but one brother, he was older 
than my Father, his name was Jacob." This is Jacob — 83, who was the only 
brother, and younger than Elisha — 90, son of Elisha — 22. The chain is thus 
made complete to connect this branch of the family with Judge Francis Fulham 
of Weston, Ms. The letter further says of Nelson's father: "Elisha Fulham 
died May 30, 1824 and was 72 years old the February before he died." His birth 
recorded in Harvard, Ms., was, "Feb. 14, 1752," a further agreement. 6 chil.

FULHAM. 



Sewall Fulham, Jr., was born in a house, then standing on the east side of 
the way, about a furlong northerly from Twenty Mile Stream Cemetery, after- 
wards moved and made an outbuilding of the dwelling nearest the cemetery. He 
inherited in a marked degree the distinguishing characteristics of both parents, 
and their first common American progenitor. He was the eldest of six children, 
and on his young shoulders rested a large part of the care and burden of the 
family, the duties of the father taking him much from home. Schools were few 
and poor, and his necessary employment about the farm so engrossed his boy- 
hood that all his schooling did not exceed six months. He early evinced great 
fondness for books; the number within reach was small, but the contents of 
these became his permanent possession for he forgot nothing. He had mastered 
arithmetic, geography, and what history come in his way, but knew nothing of 
grammar until, at the age of about eighteen, an 
accident nearly ended his earthly career. While 
chopping in the woods some half a mile from home, 
the axe struck his foot making a deep wound. He 
started at once for home in a lengthened route to 
and by the highway, over which his father was ex- 
pected about that time. When the exercise of 
walking had restored the circulation to his be- 
numbed feet, the loss of blood soon became so 
great, that, being unable to stand, he was forced 
to creep on his hands and knees. Then began a 
struggle for life up a long hill. His father did not 
come; his cries for help were unheeded; his track 
through the snow was stained with the lifeblood 
that was fast flowing away. While he had any 
strength he would go on; he must reach home or 
die by the way. He came within sight of the 

house, but was neither seen nor heard. The daylight faded; — w^as it the night 
of death descending on him? He was not discouraged; w^hile he had a gasp of 
breath he would fight for life. At last he dragged himself into the yard, where 
he fell lifeless. His mother discovered him lying in the path, bore him into the 
house, bound up his wounded foot, and finally restored him to consciousness. 
He lay helpless for weeks; but, when the crisis had passed, with returning 
strength, he called for books, and all that could be borrowed were brought to 
him. Among these was Lindley Murray's Grammar, and this he completely 
mastered and committed to memory, so that he could repeat it from beginning 
to end before he left his bed. 

When able to go out, being yet unfit for work, his father took him to a school 
some miles away, that he might, for a short time, receive instruction from a 
competent master. After this had continued about three weeks the teacher was 
called to his sick wife in another state, and, regarding his new pupil as best 
qualified to preside in his absence, left the school in his charge, expecting to 
return soon. The absence continued for weeks, and when the returning master

FULHAM. 59 

entered school in the midst of a session, he was so much pleased with its condi- 
tion and progress, that he went back to his wife, leaving the boy-tutor to finish 
the school. This he did to the satisfaction of all concerned, and established for 
himself the reputation of a successful teacher, which he maintained while teach- 
ing twelve successive winters. He employed his leisure in study, and thus ac- 
quired, if not much learning, what was of greater value, a good education. 

In 1814, Sewall Fulham, then a boy of fifteen, enlisted in a company of volun- 
teers, hastily raised in Cavendish to reinforce the national troops, in an ap- 
proaching conflict with the British; and marched with his comrades, thirty 
miles, to Rutland, where they learned that the battle of Plattsburg had been 
fought, and a notable victory won, by our combined army and navy, on Septem- 
ber 11. Here ended his service as a volunteer, but he soon found a place in the 
militia, and, at an early age became Captain of the Reading company. 

Among a diversity of gifts that fitted him for almost any profession or em- 
ployment, Mr. Fulham had mechanical ingenuity that was serviceable in many 
ways. In the early days of Vermont the shoes of a family were made and re- 
paired by a cobbler that went his round from house to house, called "Whipping 
the cat." This was the method at the Fulham homestead, and the boy Sewall, 
attentively observing the process, and thinking he could do the work, procured 
by piecemeal the necessary outfit, and, for years, made and mended the boots 
and shoes of the family. So well did he do repairing that, after he became a 
lawyer, he sometimes did for himself or his friends what ordinary shoemakers 
could not do. On one occasion his eccentric neighbor, lawyer W., when prepar- 
ing for the County Court at Woodstock, discovered a rip in his boot, and took 
it to shoemaker John Dennett, for repair. Dennett said: "It ought to be closed 
on the inside, but I can't do it." "Who can do it?" asked W. "Nobody that 
I know of but Fulham," said Dennett. W. carried the boot to Fulham, told 
what Dennett had said, and very politely requested him to mend the boot in the 
manner described. Mr. Fulham also was getting ready for court, but, thinking 
that the easiest way to be rid of one as long of wind as he was of limb, was to 
comply, he took the boot to the shop and closed the gap. much to the gratification 
of W., who was profuse in thanks, and, on reaching the county seat, exhibited 
the repaired boot to the bench and bar, expatiating on the work of Mr. Fulham 
as a masterpiece of art. 

IMr. Fulham learned the trade of carpenter and joiner. He framed buildings 
for his neighbors, and built a house for himself, near his father's house, on the 
farm in Reading, and many more in Ludlow during the early years of his resi- 
dence there. The covered suspension bridge of wood, that, for thirty-five years, 
spanned the river on Main Street, was contrived by him, and erected under his 
direction, as first of a building committee appointed by the town in 1850. After 
the burning of Black River Academy in 1844, it was determined to convert the 
abandoned Union Meeting-house, of brick, into an academy in the lower story, 
and a town hall above; and Mr. Fulham, who was one of the Trustees of the 
academy, was put in charge of the work by the town and the academy corpora- 
tion. He devoted the summer of 1845 almost exclusively to this work, procuring 



60 FULHAM. 

releases of the rights of pew-owners in the meeting-house, directing the work, 
and putting his own money into it in behalf of the academy, as he had done 
in the erection of the first building. He wished the rising generation to enjoy 
the advantages for education of which he had been deprived, and probably did 
more for the academy than any other person during his life. 

He was skilled in land-surveying, which, like most of his knowledge, was 
acquired without a master. He borrowed a text-book, and, occasionally, as he 
progressed, would walk several miles after a day's work, to the house of an old 
surveyor, where the two would spend half the night discussing some knotty 
problem. This was the only help he ever had in mathematics. 

It would seem that his first experience in legal proceedings was in prosecu- 
ting delinquents, by court-martial, v.'hile a captain of militia. His father tried 
many cases as a magistrate, and spent much time in bringing about settlements 
of controversies without recourse to law, so that his wife was accustomed to 
say that he was as much a lawyer as a minister. He owned the statutes of the 
state, and, from these, the son soon became thoroughly acquainted with the 
laws of Vermont, at the same time learning something of practice by being 
present at courts held by his father, and drafting legal instruments under his 
father's direction. At the age of about twenty-two he began to appear as coun- 
cil in the justice courts of Reading and its vicinity. 

Mrs, Fulham, although very domestic in her life and habits, possessed a strong 
mind and great force of character, and she exerted a marked influence over her 
husband for fifty years. To her he owed more than to all others for his achieve- 
ments in life. She perceived and appreciated his remarkable gifts, and urged 
him to develop them in an occupation better fitted lor their exercise and growth 
than that of a farmer or mechanic. Under her inspiration, after pursuing the 
study of medicine for some time, he finally decided on law as a profession. He 
began reading elementary works borrowed from a lawyer in an adjoining town 
in the summer of 1826, and continued this until April 16, 1828, when, with his^ 
little family, he removed to Ludlow, Here he formally entered on the study 
of law under the tuition of the only resident attorney, meantime working at his 
trade of carpenter, in the hayfield, surveying land, and teaching public schools 
in winter, and private pupils at other times, for the support of his family. 

Near the end of his first year as a student at law, the defendant in a suit 
brought by his tutor, applied to Mr. Fulham to act as his attorney, which he 
agreed to if his tutor did not object. Consent was easily obtained, and the 
suit was tried before a justice and jury, the pupil being pitted against his tutor 
for the first time. The result was a verdict for the defendant, which so cha- 
grined and offended the tutor that he refused to have Mr. Fulham longer as a 
pupil; and, when he applied for admission to offices in the adjoining town of 
Cavendish, Mr. Fulham was told that the tutor's protest had been entered against 
his being received, and the attorneys did not like to quarrel with a prominent 
and influential brother lawyer; but that they would lend the applicant as many 
books as he wanted. Under the rules governing admission to the bar such 
preparation was not sufficient; but, perceiving that the design was to drive him 



FULHAM. 61 

from town, or to keep him out of the profession, Mr. Fulham determined that it 
should not succeed. 

He now began to practice on his own account before justices, taking powers of 
attorney from clients when cases went to the County Court; and he soon 
realized enough from this for the support of his family. When he had studied 
as long as the court rules required for admission, he submitted himself to the 
usual examination, and passed it with credit; but admission was refused, for 
want of a certificate that he had studied the requisite time in the office of an 
attorney of the Supreme Court. From this there was no appeal, and for the 
present he was obliged to submit to it. 

In 1833 his former tutor was elected Representative from Ludlow to the State 
Legislature; but, in the following year, Mr. Fulham became a candidate for that 
office in opposition to the incumbent, and was elected. At this session of the 
Legislature he introduced a bill providing that any man possessing the other re- 
quirements should be admitted to the bar, although he had not pursued his studies 
under an attorney of the court; but the bill failed to pass the House, being 
opposed by the lawyers. The next year he was again Representative from Lud- 
low, — as he was for eight consecutive years, — and he secured the passage of a 
similar bill through the House; but it was lost in the Senate. In the third 
year, after his bill had passed the house by an overwhelming majority, but 
before it came up for action in the Senate, prominent lawyers of that body from 
Windsor County, wishing to avoid the responsibility of defeating a measure so 
popular in the House, but fearing the effect of such a general law, sought an 
interview with the Representative from Ludlow, and proposed that, if he would 
cease to urge the passage of his bill, they would use their influence to have him 
admitted to the bar at the next term of court. To this he assented, and in 
November, 1836, at the age of thirty-seven years, he became a member of Wind- 
sor County Bar in spite of the rules. 

The name Sewall Fulham, Jr., first appears in the list of attorneys-at-law on 
the calendar for May Term, 1837, but his practice in court had attained such 
dimensions that, at the next following term, November, 1837, his name stands 
as council in 64 of the 348 cases appearing there. He assumed at once a promi- 
nent position at the bar of Windsor County, at that time and for many following 
years one of the strongest in the state; and he maintained it as long as he was 
able to attend court, practicing also in other counties of Vermont, in New Hamp- 
shire, and sometimes in the State of New York. 

Sewall r\ilham was never an office-seeking politician, but he recognized the 
duty of every citizen to study and advance the true principles of government 
and a proper administration of the laws. He held many positions of honor and 
trust, conferred by the town and by the Legislature. Besides numerous minor 
offices, and his services as Representative from Ludlow, ending with 1841, — after 
which he declined to be a candidate, — in 1842, he represented Ludlow as a 
Delegate to a Convention for revising the State Constitution. He was several 
times t adered a nomination on the whig ticket, — always equivalent to an elec- 
tion, — to the State Senate, which he refused. In 1839, in Joint Assembly, he 



62 FULHA^I. 

was appointed to settle the concerns of the Vermont State Bank, the duties of 
which appointment he discharged; and, at the same session, he was asked to 
accept the office of Judge, which he declined. After his retirement from the 
Legislature he was four times elected by that body State's Attorney for Wind- 
sor County. 

The construction of Rutland & Burlington Rail Road, begun in 1847, was ac- 
companied by great disorders and the commission of murders and other crimes 
by the laborers, who brought wdth them here the ancient feuds that had existed 
for centuries between the inhabitants of petty kingdoms that once divided Ire- 
land, and now prevented the immigrants from one section of the island being 
mingled wtih those from any other, in the same work. Mr. Fulham had held 
the office of State's Attorney two terms, and was regarded as the best man at 
the Windsor County Bar to cope with this new disturbing element. He was 
urged to accept the office again, and was twice elected by the Legislature, re- 
maining in office until the excavation was finished. During this period he de- 
voted a large part of his time to the repression of crime and the prosecution of 
criminals, on the line of the road. Then, as always, crime was chiefly the 
result of indulgence in intoxicating drinks; and the State's Attorney put forth 
strenuous efforts to suppress their sale, seizing and destroying liquors, when 
found under conditions that indicated an intention to sell illegally; thus 
forestalling one feature of the prohibitory law, enacted years after, without 
legal authority. In one instance, with his own hands, he knocked in the heads 
of several barrels found in the Irish shanties of Ludlow, spilling their contents. 
All this was exasperating to lawbreakers. Suits of trespass were brought 
against him, and his life w^as often threatened; but these could not deter him. 

It was in the trial of four Irishmen for the murder of Matthew Leonard, — 
one of the most atrocious crimes ever committed, in w^hich between 50 and 100 
laborers from one district of Ireland w^ere engaged in the slaughter of one from 
another district, of whom they w^ere afraid on account of his superior strength, 
dragging him from his bed in the night while known to be intoxicated, and 
butchering him in presence of his wife and children, — that, after Mr. Fulham, 
in closing, had made one of his most masterly efforts, characterized by the cor- 
respondent of a Boston Daily as: "An argument of scalping-knife sarcasm and 
sledge-hammer force," the wife of William Wright, one of the criminals tried, 
while with him in jail where he w^as confined, expressed her animosity in the 
hearing of the jailor, Zerah Lull, in a petition addressed to some real or im- 
aginary powder, thus: "Sind thot Phullum to the lowest, hahtest earner o' Hell, 
with niver a drahp o' wather." 

An extensive law practice in a small Vermont town, near the middle of the 
nineteenth century, was a severe test of physical endurance; but with great in- 
tellectual endowments was combined a physique that for nearly forty-five years 
enabled Mr. Fulham to attend every term of Windsor County Court. When he 
came to Ludlow he could outlift the town giant, Ben Sargent; no man in town 
could lay him on his back; and old residents have told the Author of seeing him 
bear a thousand shingles in a bunch, on his shoulder, up a ladder, to the roof 



FULHAM. 63 

of a two-story house. Soon after the ordination of his father, he wallved several 
miles from home to another town, to borrow some tool of a carpenter whom he 
found erecting a frame with the help of the able men of the vicinity. He as- 
sisted in the "raising," and then the men gathered around a huge watering- 
trough in which the ice was beginning to form, for the customary drink from a 
bottle about to appear. A burly fellow, announcing himself to be the best 
man present, declared his intention to have the first drink at the head of the 
trough, and, starting from the foot, removed, with more or less resistance from 
each, all standing in his way, until he reached young Fulham, who, being a 
stranger, expected to escape the ordeal; but, finding himself suddenly assailed, 
he grappled with the bully and threw him at full length into the trough, from 
which he emerged a wiser and a wetter man. The carpenter, who was some- 
thing of a wag, consoled his crest-fallen neighbor by saying: "You ought to 
know better than to try it on Fulham, his father is a Baptist minister, and the 
Baptists are famous for getting folks under water." 

His medical studies and his sympathetic nature made him one of the best of 
nurses; his services were in frequent demand, and for many years they were freely 
bestowed on the afflicted whenever possible. His tender compassion for all that 
suffered, from whatever cause, was extreme; and, though never a member of 
the church, he knew^ the Bible almost by heart. He cherished the highest faith 
in God and the immortal life, and he could offer the best consolation to the 
bereaved. He used to tell, with relish, his experience in a neighboring family, 
where he "watched" with a young daughter, sick unto death of scarlet fever, 
which he there contracted, and of which he nearly died. On the daughter's 
death, he tried to comfort the mother, a member of the Baptist Church, with 
assurances, drawn from his own faith, of the higher life, in which the daughter 
was better off than here, and where, purified from the stains of earth, all would 
finally be gathered and dwell together in peace and love. The mother, in de- 
scribing this to a friend, said: "It was so consoling; I should really have thought 
Mr. Fulham was a Christian if I hadn't known he wasn't." She had not learned 
to apply the scripture: "By their fruits shall ye know them." 

His early practice involved much night work. Jury trials in neighboring 
towns often began with the going down of the sun, and sometimes lasted until 
its rising. He often slept as he rode home; but, like Horace Greeley, his sleep 
was of the body and not of the mind while anything required attention. He 
would fall asleep during the argument of opposing council in a justice and jury 
trial, and, when aroused by his client, anxious lest some advantage should be 
lost by not hearing his adversary, he would say: "Well! I know all about it!" and, 
when he came to reply, he would answer every point made against him. 

He had a sparkling wit, a store of knowledge on all current topics, and an 
inexhaustible fund of stories which he would embellish with perfect mimicry. 
These qualities made him a most delightful companion in hours devoted to 
social enjoyment; and, in country trials where he was known, for many years 
it was necessary only to say: "Fulham will be there," to pack the room with 
those that would come to enjoy the fun that he would make, and, if necessary, 



64 FULHA^I. 

stay all night to hear it. In some places all the large boys in winter schools 
would run away to hear him. An eminent clergyman, reared in Plymouth, after 
the death of Mr. Fulham, said: "I often did this. At that time I really thought 
that Mr. Fulham must be the greatest man in the United States." In many 
cases the opposite party declared that Fulham had laughed him out of his case. 

He had an aptness at repartee seldom equalled, in which he never suffered by 
comparison with a competitor. In trying his first case at Newport, N. H., the 
opposing council, whose head was nearly as bald as an egg, at the end of each 
point in his argument, said: "Is it possible the council is so thick haired that 
he can't see this?" In beginning his reply Mr. Fulham said: "Gentlemen of the 
Jury! It is true that my hair is thick; it is also true that the gentleman's head 
is nearly destitute of capillary adornment; but I have never learned that the 
poverty of a crop is evidence of superior fertility in the soil that bears it." 

The "Book of Books," indispensible in the home of a clergyman, was among 
the first entertainments of Mr. Fulham's childhood. The Bible was diligently 
studied by him in youth, and, during life, it was read more than any other book, 
so that his quotations from it were likely to be verhatim, and this intimate 
acquaintance with Scripture was often serviceable. While attending court in 
a distant part of Vermont, held by a Judge before unknown, during a recess, 
the Judge said: "Brother Fulham, I understand you are a believer in the final 
restitution of all things." "I am." was the reply. "May I ask what evidence 
you have for such a belief?" asked the Judge. "It is that 'which God hath 
spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began,' " said Mr. 
Fulham. "Well! I don't see but your authorities are conclusive," said the 
Judge. 

In 1839 he was a delegate to a convention of Universalists, at which the case 
of a young clergyman, charged with the breach of a promise to marry, was for 
trial. By advice of Mr. Fulham, who sat near him, the young man acknowl- 
edged the truth of the charge, giving what he thought a sufficient reason for 
his act. Another clergyman advocated his cause and moved that the young 
brother be forgiven, citing as a precedent the case of the Prodigal Son. An 
elderly clergj-man, noted for his testy sayings, who favored more severe treat- 
ment, here sprang to his feet exclaiming: "Ah! but the cases are different; we 
do not read that the prodigal came back with a lawyer at his elbaw." "But 
we do read that he had a surly elder brother that wouldn't forgive him," said 
Mr. Fulham. The elder brother was hit, dropped into his seat, and said no more. 

His memory was seldom at fault. He would sing for the children a song that 
pleased him, the words and tune of which he had first heard during an absence 
from home. He would relate with the most minute details amusing incidents 
within his experience. And, in his last days, his son wrote from his lips the 
prayers his grandfather was accustomed to say seventy years before. He could 
recite the contents of books from which he read in school days, and the poems 
then familiar to him. He was fond of poetry, delighting especially in the poems 
of Pope and Burns. He had learned "Pope's Essay on Man" from using it as a 
"parsing book" in teaching; and he knew many of Burns's poems. 



FULHAM. 65 

He had a gift of versification, and used to say that he thought he might have 
been something of a poet, but, at twelve years, his father flogged him for writing 
a lampoon in rhyme on their nearest neighbor, and took the divine afflatus out 
of him. He often improvised orally for the amusement of children, but seldom 
wrote in verse, except about some person or class obnoxious to his sense of 
decency or propriety; and none of these were printed. To illustrate, a fragment 
from memory, written in the forties, is appended. It relates to one Timothy 
Haild, commonly called "Uncle Tim," a village factotum, who enjoyed a practical 
monopoly in "managing funerals"; and introduces a long, lank, lame, cadaverous 
shoemaker, named Warren Pease, and nicknamed "Deacon," because of his 
solemn visage. It may suggest "Death and Dr. Hornbook," by Robert Burns: 
Two funerals came off one day, one North, the other South; 
And Tim was mad, the people say, he couldn't manage both. 
So, walking madly down the path, old Deacon Pease he met; 
And, thinking him his patron, Death, went at him in a pet: 
"You long-legged, limping, shambling scampi why do you manage so? 
One at a time, and I will tramp, and lay their bodies low; 
But when you take off two at once, half of my custom's gone; 
So now, you mean, old, blundering dunce! be satisfied with one. 
And if you do the like again, I'll lay you on your back; 
I'll stretch you out upon the plain, and then your head I'll crack." 
The Deacon, thinking Tim quite mad, went off without reply; 
And Tim, quite happy, thought he had obtained a victory. 
Alas! Alas! when the dread monster, "Grim," 
Shall call and snatch away old uncle Tim; 
What shall we do when anybody dies? 
For who shall manage their sad obsequies? 
With hat on head, who'll walk up the broad aisle, 
And give his orders in such pompous style? 
Flourish his small black cane with ease and grace. 
And show each foolish clown into his place? 
Productions like this, with the fearless castigation of evil doers, the dishonest 
and immoral, wherever they fell under his censorship, of course made all such 
his enemies; and, in the years of debility preceding his death, when he could no 
longer protect himself from their attacks, they found many ways of revenging 
themselves on him; but no respectable person ever charged him with immorality. 
Mr. Fulham did not seek for wealth, and he had no "Low ambition." He often 
said: "I never knew a Fulham that was rich, and I don't want to be." He did 
much professional work where there was no hope of recompense; he gave liber- 
ally for all objects deemed worthy; and he almost literally obeyed the injunc- 
tion: "From him that would borrow of thee, turn not thou away." At his death 
the uncollectible debts due him far exceeded in amount the value of his estate. 
His early gifts to the children were generally books suited to their years, but 
these were held by uncertain tenure; for, although his children clung tenaciously 
to their favorites, and often found it hard to give them up, it was understood 



66 FULHAM. 

that, when books had been read sufficiently, they must be given to other chil- 
dren who had none. 

He had great fondness for children, and a remarkable faculty for attracting 
and entertaining them. Surviving nephews and nieces tell of their delightful 
anticipations of "Uncle Fulham's" visits, of his little presents to them, and of 
their enjoyment of his presence, when they were young. He had entertainment 
for all: the fruits of much reading and reflection for the thoughtful; profound 
convictions for the inquirer after truth; songs and rhymes and frolic for the 
young; encyclopedic reminiscences for the old; wit and story and generous 
appreciation for the social circle; a heart overflowing with kindness and good 
will, that never withheld sympathy from the deserving; and, over and through 
all, was an abiding faith in the Universal Father, whose wisdom and justice and 
love are without measure and without end. No one could be much in his pres- 
ence without being made aw^are of his unswerving fidelity to the tenets of 
Universalism, that grew with his grow^th, strengthened with his strength, and 
w^ere the guide of his actions in vigorous manhood, and the support and con- 
solation of his declining years. 

He had no encouragement for causes that appeared to him unworthy; but, 
when satisfied that right was on his side, he made his client's cause his own, 
and exhausted in it all honorable resources, often paying court and other fees 
that never would be reimbursed. The estimation in which he was held by the 
Windsor County Bar found expression at its next meeting after his death, as 
follows: — 

"Resolved, That in his death we, the Bar Association of Windsor County make 
public recognition of the loss of one of the oldest and ablest members of our 
fraternity. 

"Resolved, That in his professional life the community in which he lived, the 
County and the State have lost a man of high quality of native ability, and of 
zeal in the advocacy of the causes of his clients which commends itself to our 
admiration. 

"Resolved, That in the public stations in which he has been called to serve, 
he has shown himself a citizen of marked ability, influence, and devotion to the 
best interests of the State and Nation. 

"Resolved, That the Court be requested to direct the Clerk to enroll these 
resolutions upon the record." 

Pew men ever entered the profession with so little help from others, and yet, 
few have achieved equal success, owing, entirely, to his great native endowments. 
He was, most emphatically, what has been termed a self-made man; and yet it 
was not he, but God had made him one of the noblest of his creatures. He 
rarely made a mistake in anything he undertook; whatever was presented, 
his mind seemed to comprehend the situation at once. His work as a lawyer 
was equally excellent whether as draftsman, jury advocate, or in discussing legal 
principles before the higher courts. His memory enabled him to refer to re- 
ported cases by title, volume, and page, with a statement of the doctrine taught. 
His powers, towards the end, sometimes were obscured by disease, but they were 



FULHAM. 67 

never permanently weakened; and, at his last appearance before the General 
Term of the Supreme Court of Vermont, two years before his death, while too 
feeble to speak continuously, an old lawyer that heard it, having known 
him for many years, described his argument as one of his best; and by it he 
won as great a victory as he ever achieved; and it fitly crowned a life too early 
brought to its close. 

In an address to the alumni of Black River Academy, August 24, 1S86, Hon. 
Austin Adams, a Justice of the Supreme Court of Iowa, who fitted for college 
in Ludlow, and studied his profession at the county seat of Windsor County, 
paid his tribute to the character of Sewall Fulham as one, "Whose head filled a 
larger sized hat than any other lawyer of the distinguished Windsor County 
Bar. This man I believe had no college seal attached to his diploma; but it 
bore the seal of an authority which transcends the college's. No one would 
say that he would have looked out of place on the bench of the highest judicial 
tribunal of the Union." 

Mr. Fulham had a habit, the use of tobacco, acquired in youth, which was the 
bane of his life here, and doubtless shortened it by many years. He learned of 
its necessarily harmful effects while studying medicine, and, at the age of about 
forty, he undertook to free himself from it. On a New Year's Day he deter- 
mined to abstain through the year, and he carried out the intention; but during 
all the time he wanted tobacco as much as ever, and, with the next year, he 
resumed the habit, continuing it as long as he was able to work. He often said 
that it would shorten his life by ten years, which it doubtless did, his years 
being more than ten less than those of nearly all his known ancestors. 

He was deeply interested in the w^ar for the preservation of the Union; and, 
in the fall of 1861, at a large personal expense, never reimbursed, took twenty- 
one recruits for the Ludlow Company, partly enlisted by him, to the camp of the 
Second Vermont Infantry in Virginia, where he spent twelve days in the tent 
of his son, the Captain, partaking cheerfully of the soldier's fare and life; 
and he never lost his interest in the cause of good government, as it had always 
been supported by his ancestors in America. At the time of his death, the elec- 
tion of President Hayes had not been determined, and it seemed to be his last 
concern. His attendant was reading to him, and he appeared to be sleeping, 
when the word president was pronounced. He opened his eyes and asked, "Is 
Hayes elected?"' These were his last words; he sank like a child into the sleep 
that knows no waking on earth. He died in the faith of Universalism, which 
he had cherished from his youth; a faith that helped to make him one of the 
most just, benevolent, unselfish, and patient of men. His housekeeper who had 
been with him six months said' "I never heard him complain of anything, or 
say anything unkind." At one time, when he thought himself dying, he said: 
"The longer I live, the brighter my faith grows in the final restitution of all 
things." In his last audible prayer he asked for the blessing of God on himself, 
his children, and posterity, and on all men; and that the "Merciful Father" 
would "Deliver mankind from their horrible theologies."

His wife had preceded him by twenty months. During that time he had con- 
stantly felt her loss in his shattered home; and, in the quiet of a Sunday after- 
noon, with no one present but his son to close his eyes, his great soul took its 
flight to join her in the hereafter. 5 chil. b. 1, in Reading; the rest in

of Timothy: "He was a man of great physical strength, weight 180, very active, 
an extraordinary singer, and a good scholar. He was a kind and obliging 
neighbor, much given to mirth and drollery, and of strong mental powers." 
His unswerving adherence to principle is shown in the following narrative: In 
youth he was somewhat profane, but he began to study the Bible, became a 
Universalist, and abandoned profanity. He carried a New Testament in his 
pocket, was ready to demonstrate the scriptural foundation of his faith on all 
occasions, and gave lectures on the subject in the schoolhouses about town, so 
that his theological tenets were generally known. He fell in love with Mary 
Bannister, a Baptist, and asked her to many him, to which she consented on 
condition that he forsake Universalism, and go to meeting with her. To this 
he would not agree, but offered to furnish her with the means of attending her 
own church. After considerable correspondence, negotiations ceased; but he 
preserved Mary's letters, and, on his deathbed, placed them in his sister's hands 
with directions to burn them. His musical gift was a family inheritance from 
his father, his mother, and his grandmother Harris, sister of Supply Belcher, 
once celebrated as "The Handel of Maine." There was no greater entertainment 
for his nephews and nieces at Ludlow than to have "Uncle Tim" come to spend 
the night, and sing songs for them as long as they were allowed to sit up and 
hear. He died in the zenith of his strength, of strangulated hernia, and, in 
his last hours, he joined his sisters around the bed in singing Universalist 
Conference Hymns, of which he was very fond. The pathos of the situation 
was extreme when, in view of immediate, certain death, whose icy fingers were 
clutching at his vitals, he raised his superb tenor voice in the strain: —

"What's this that steals, that steals upon my frame? 
Is it death? Is it death? 
That soon will quench, will quench this vital flame. 

Is it death? Is it death? 
If it be death, I soon shall be from every pain and sorrow free; 
I shall the King of Glory see. All is well, all is well."

Adams, Charles Tufts, who gave a large amount of land to Tufts College, 

and the Rev. Samuel Locke, once president of Harvard. 

"Entering business as a very young man, he had a long and increas- 
ingly successful career. He was a Director in the corporation of Clark 
Hutchinson Co., wholesale shoe dealers. He was one of the most expert 
men in Boston on credits and accounts, having great judgment and in- 
sight in this line. He was for a long time vice-president of the Boston 
Credit Men's Association, and assistant secretary and member of Ex- 
ecutive Committee of the Boston Boot and Shoe Club. He was a 
Trustee of the Franklin Savings Bank, director of the Washington 
Home, member of the Royal Arcanum, the Boston City Club, the Boston 
Merchants' Association, the Sons of the American Revolution, and the 
National Arts Club of New York. He was a staunch Unitarian, a mem- 
ber of the First Parish, Brookline. 

"For a layman he had an unusual knowledge of law and medicine. 
His talent as an artist was marked. He studied with Enneking. In 
spite of his broad interests, he was essentially a home man. His devo- 
tion to his family was unusually beautiful. His modest and unassuming 
manner covered the greatest qualities, justice, honor, courage, kindness 
of heart, and singular gentleness. His friendly and sincere interest in 
every one with whom he came in contact, his pleasant humor, en- 
deared him to all who knew him. His motto was: 'The pleasure of 
doing good is the only one that never wears out.' " — From an obituary

1837; dau. of William and Martha Adaline (Marsh) Adams, of W. B. (W. A., 
d. Dec. 8, 1873. M. A., d. May 23, 1887). Lemuel Fulham was large and strong, 
and possessed great energ>' and executive ability. At an early age he went 
from Granby, Vt. to Rutland, Ms., where he learned the bootmaker's trade; he 
went thence to North Brookfield and engaged in business until hard times made 
it unprofitable, when he abandoned it. His aptness for business and his capacity 
for hard work then secured him a situation as inspector of goods for a large 
firm of jobbers in boots and shoes of New York City until 1858. He then went 
to West Brookfield, built a shoe factory, and began manufacturing on his own 
account, which was continued about 24 years. At the breaking out of the Civil 
War he sustained heavy losses in uncollectible debts in the South, which forced 
a suspension of business; but his creditors granted extensions that enabled him 



76 FLXHAM. 

to resume, and he soon liquidated all obligations. In 1882 his factory burned, 
and he retired from business; but during his life he ret:ained an interest in 
public affairs. 

He was foremost in matters relating to the growth and welfare of the town, 
not only influencing action in relation to public improvements, but putting his 
money into them. As an inducement to the building of concrete walks, he made 
one at his own expense from the R. R. Station to the Town Hall. He encour- 
aged and aided young men going into business, and always had the prosperity 
of the town at heart. His acts of charity were many, and his memory will be 
cherished long by those that benefitted by his generosity. 4 chil. b. in W. B.

being promoted to Lieutenant Commander in December, 1899. In 1902-05. he 
was at the head of the Department of Ordnance in the Naval Academy, but 
commanded the U. S. S. "Chesapeake" in the summer of 1904, and the U. S. S. 
"Terror" in the summer of 1905, on practice cruises with midshipmen. He was 
promoted Commander July 1, 1905. 

Commander Fulham was ordered to the command of the U. S. S. "Glacier," 
Sep. 15, 1905, and in November following was ordered for special duty, with the 
Glacier and the colliers Brutus and Caesar under his command, to tow the 
"Dewey" — the largest dry dock in the world, with a lifting capacity of 20.000 
tons — from Chesapeake Bay to the Philippines, some 12,000 miles. He did not 
approve of the method adopted for performing this difficult and hazardous 
undertaking, and, at his request, he was relieved from the command of the 
expedition. 

He then became commander of the Marietta, and, in 1906, he landed a force 
from the Marietta at Cienfuegos for the preservation of plantations, public 
property, and the property of foreigners, threatened by insurgents in Cuba, 
which was followed by the second intervention of the U. S. Government in 
Cuban affairs. In the spring of 1907, still commanding the Marietta, he ren- 
dered a yet greater service in the cause of peace and good order, by teaching 
beleaguerers on the coast of Honduras and Nicaragua, in a lesson not soon to be 
forgotten, their obligation to respect and observe the flags, the rights, and the 
property of neutral nations and their citizens. In this he showed a knowledge 
of international law, and a capacity for its administration that won for him 
general commendation at home and abroad. The "Army and Navy Register" 
of April 6, 1907, published at Washington, said of Commander Fulham: "He 
has again proved equal to a delicate situation and has justified the expecta- 
tions of his seniors in the service, who have observed him as a man of readiness 
of resource, intrepidity of action, and as diplomatic as he is fearless." In 
July. 1907, he was ordered to Newport, R. I., as Commandant of the Naval 
Training Station there. June, 1909, he was promoted to the grade of Captain, 
and in December he was ordered to command the battleship Mississippi 2 chil.

508 (VII.) VOLNEY SEWALL FULHAM (280) of Ludlow, Vt., son of Sewall 
and Eunice Howe (Goddard 86) Fulham (277), a lawyer, first of Ludlow, after- 
wards of New York City, and the author of this genealogy, b. July 16, 1830. 

(Autobiographical). 

I was born in the front room of the easterly tenement in the fifth house east 
from the Library on lower Main Street in Ludlow, now owned by Mary Loraine 
Gordon Sargent (1). When I began to walk, in my first year, an older boy, 
son of Elias Hurlburt, the Baptist minister living in the other tenement, re- 
peatedly pushed me over, which so angered my mother that she insisted on 
moving immediately. My father began to build a house on the south side of 
what was then called Water Street, and, until it should be habitable, took a 
house built into the bank behind the present Baptist Parsonage on High Street, 
with two stories in front and one in rear, where we stayed until one chilly 
evening of early November, in my sixteenth month, the family went to its 
permanent home. 

I remember that there was no front door when we entered, a blanket being 
hung across the opening, and that the sitting-room was filled with smoke from 
a fireplace. The next day I found a work-bench in the parlor, where I watched 
the carpenters making pretty curling ribbons from the edges of boards, which 
I gathered. I selected curious blocks of the same form and size, sawn from 
mouldings, in fitting them at the corners of door and window casings, which I 
put together in a symmetrical square on the top of a post at the foot of the 
stairs, where I thought it was needed, an early foreshadowing of mechanical 
traits developed in later years. 

While in petticoats, it was remarked that my form was unlike that of other 
children, more resembling maturity, and I was called "the little man." My 
mother emphasized the peculiarity by making me a suit with trousers earlier 
than they were worn by other boys, after which she never got me into petticoats 
again. At the house in the bank, my mother left me for a moment on the 
floor, and, on returning, found me seated with my feet out the window, two 
stories above the ground. When two or three years old my father left me on 
a scaffold of the barn, bidding me stay where I was while he crossed by a scant- 
ling from the doorway to the entrance of a loft over the woodhouse that 
cornered with the barn, and got some lumber. On his return he went below to 
pick up his hammer, discovered my shadow on the scantling, and, keeping under 
the substance while I crossed as he had to the loft, told me to stay there while 
he brought a ladder, with which he took me down, I having obeyed him literally 
in all. And I early climbed nearly all the neighboring trees on the street. At 
eight years, my father said he thought I could lift him, then weighing more 
than 200 pounds, and bade me try by grasping his thighs, by which I raised 
him from the floor; and there then was promise that I might grow into resem- 
blance of my herculean ancestors; but in infaiicy I nearly died of a bowel com- 
plaint, as my mother said; it afflicted my childhood, became chronic in youth, 
and doubtless prevented my normal development and growth. In summer it 
was worse, while in winter I was nearly free from it.

At sixteen, being nearly six feet tall and weighing 140 pounds, I was cham- 
pion in two wrestling bouts, the second ending in an unprovoked attack on me 
by one much older and heavier than I whom I had thrown, followed by a blow 
from me that required no repeating. Disgusted at being found in such a situation, 
I never entered the ring again, and I never since have struck a blow in anger. 
I was not averse to trials of strength, and, in the winter after I was eighteen, 
learning that men had been lifting on platform scales, I tied a rope through the 
handle of one, and, standing on it with a sledstake through the loop, I raised 
with my hands 1,000 pounds, my weight being 146, and repeated it with greater 
ease to satisfy a doubting muscular farmer who failed in a like attempt in 
presence of my brother-in-law% who still lives to verify it. I excelled in all 
athletic exercises, and for that reason was sought as a teacher in district schools 
where there were unruly large boys. Of these I taught one full term and parts 
of three others, and my authority never was successfully resisted. 

During the building of the Rutland & Burling- 
ton Railroad, in the fall of 1849, I was called to 
assist in quelling a riot, in which, after much 
firing into shanties at night and frequent pugilistic 
encounters by day, more than 1,000 laborers from 
one district of Ireland, armed with all available 
weapons from muskets to pickhandles, came down 
from the Summit and Mount Holly to drive from 
the rock-cut of Section Eight in Ludlow, some 400 
of their countrymen from another part of that 
island, having brought with them and continued 
here feuds of the ancient petty kingdoms there 
The authorities were a deputy sheriff and a justice 
of the peace, both elderly men, and I was the sole 
representative of the posse-comitatus. We met the 
rioters as they came in squads, capturing some 
from each, while the rest ran away: and finally, by 

a charge in a one-horse-wagon on the main body, put them to flight in all direc- 
tions, their leader being brought down by a charge of buckshot in his leg from 
a fowling-piece with which Matthew L#eonard was supposed to have been mur- 
dered in 1848, as described in Fulham 277, in the hands of the youngest of the 
sheriff's party. Three other laborers on the road and one citizen received gun- 
shot wounds; ten prisoners, mostly arrested by me, were sent to Woodstock 
jail, and this was the last similar act of violence on the road, attributed by rail- 
road men to the buckshot treatment. 

I early learned to read, and at night, when outdoor play was impracticable, 
I applied myself to novels, reading as long as I was allowed to sit up. Whale- 
oil lamps and tallow candles furnished the only artificial lights, and in reading 
a set of Maryatt in fine type on poor paper at the age of twelve, my eyes were 
injured so that I was forced to desist; during my subsequent school days I 
could not study at night, and my eyes have never recovered. At seven years,

while driving the cow home from pasture in early evening, my attention was 
attracted to a brilliant star; I had learned of the great distance of the heavenly 
bodies, and, as I gazed at the star, I thought, there is something beyond it, and 
I perceived the great truth of the infinity of space; that in whatever direction a 
line is extended it can have no end. This was my earliest, remembered, logical 
deduction. As a child, I was accustomed to spend unoccupied time at school In 
listening to recitations, and, by this means, had considerable knowledge of a sub- 
ject before studying it. When little more than a baby, a private pupil of my 
father taught me "Those Evening Bells," by Thomas Moore. When I was four, 
iliy two elder sisters, having learned "The Little Graves," some 68 lines, were 
accustomed to recite it together to entertain callers. I had often heard it, and 
one evening, when they became embarrassed and could not go on, I prompted 
them, was asked if I could say it, began and went through it; and these, my 
first acquisitions, are still remembered with many other poems. Among the 
longest are: "Paradise and the Peri," by Thomas Moore, "The Vision of Sir 
Launfal," by James Russell Lowell, and "Nothing to Wear," by William Allen 
Butler. 

I became critical as to the use of English, as a child. When I was seven a 
boy of my age from the state of New York used, ungrammatically, the auxiliary 
tviU for shall, in the first person, and I knew it was wrong, although I never 
had been told. At nine years I began the study of Grammar, and criticised the 
sentence, "See the fly rub his head with both his legs," saying: "A fly has more 
than two legs." I wished to be educated at West Point, but my mother objected, 
and, when nearly ready to enter college, preparation was abandoned on account 
of my ill-health. At the age of eighteen, without instruction or previous ex- 
perience, and without assistance except in raising the frame, I erected and 
finished outwardly an office building adjoining the house, with rooms for myself 
up-stairs. Here I began reading law under my father's direction, and, at the 
age of twenty-one, I was admitted to Windsor County Bar, without much pros- 
pect of the active practice of my profession. From the age of twenty my health 
slowly improved, and, during the next ten years, by temperance in all things 
and the rigorous observance of hygienic laws, I was substantially cured of my 
ailment. 

I had not studied surveying in my schooldays, but, finding that an outdoor 
life was beneficial to my health, when occasion offered, I borrowed the only 
compass in town and found no difficulty in doing the ordinary work of running 
lines and measuring land. Where accuracy was required the instrument was 
insufficient and I bought one of the best Gurley Transits with vernier, telescope, 
level, and vertical circle; a chain, and a copy of Gillespie's Surveying; and, thus 
equipped, without instruction, I undertook and accomplished to my own satisfac- 
tion and that of those that sought my services, whatever was required of civil 
engineering in the vicinity of Ludlow, until the breaking out of the War of 
Secession. 

I was several years Court Auditor for Windsor County by appointment of the 
Court, without my previous knowledge that I was a candidate. I was Super- 



FULHAM. 87 

intendent of Schools for Ludlow in 1857. In March, 1861, without knowing 
that I was to be a candidate, I was elected by ballot, Moderator of the town 
meeting in opposition to ring rule. Superintendent of Schools, and First Auditor. 
But I never sought an office within the gift of any constituency. 

In my first trial with a jury before Isaac F. Redfield, for many years Chief 
Justice of Vermont Supreme Court and afterwards council for the United States 
in prosecuting a claim against Great Britain for depredations of the "Alabama," 
the Presiding Judge said to Assistant Judge John S. Marcy: "That young Mr. 
Fulham tries his case very well, I think he will sometime sit where I do"; and 
he made similar remarks to my father and other members of the bar; but the 
prediction never came near fulfillment. 

In jury trials at the County Court, before stenographers were employed, 
lawyers had to write the testimony of witnesses; and in this I surpassed all 
others at the table in the rapidity with which I wrote, and the fullness of my 
notes. I was employed in taking testimony out of court, and, on May 24, 1856, 
between 9 a. m. and 4 p. m., I wrote forty-six depositions as to impeachment, in 
a chancery suit, attorneys appearing on lx>th sides and examining witnesses, 
and some of the depositions exceeding a page of legal-cap. Excessive use of 
the hand in such ways induced writer's cramp, and, during the last forty-five 
years, I have been unable to use a pen in the usual way. The manuscript for 
this book is produced by the use of a type-writer. 

I rarely took part in a criminal trial, but, during my summer vacation in 
1871 at Ludlow, a murder was committed, the body being found buried in leaves 
near the village, with a hand organ near by. The man was an Italian, and the 
companion with whom he had been travelling was arrested five days after he 
had left town, within twelve miles of the place of the murder, and brought back 
for trial. He could speak no English, but, through an Italian with a traveling 
circus, he was made to understand the charge against him, and, when the 
lawyers present were pointed out, he indicated me as his choice. I explained to 
him that if he were guilty I should wish him to be punished, but would see 
that he had a fair trial, with which he was satisfied, and the hearing before a 
magistrate began. It lasted twelve days, during which I worked continuously, 
excepting meal-times and about three hours' sleep each night, taking a mass of 
testimony that soon satisfied me of my client's innocence. As there were 
several lawyers opposed to me, the necessity of writing the testimony made my 
labors unusually arduous, and I accepted the offer of a lawyer from Cavendish, 
many years my senior, to help me. As the time for arguments approached my 
colleague broached the subject of making the closing argument, saying: "I can 
always do better after hearing another on the same side go over the ground." 
Though an unusual suggestion from a volunteer, I consented. During two 
weeks I had spent all possible time in reading the testimony and making notes of 
points to be presented in argument. In opening for the defence I made all these 
points, consuming five hours and twenty minutes without pause; and, in follow- 
ing, my associate could do little more than repeat what I had said. The next 
day, while under the influence of stimulants, from which he had abstained

during the hearing, he complained to my father, saying: "He made a splendid 
argument, but he didn't leave me a d — d thing to say." I was not well when the 
hearing began, and when it was over and I went home, my mothev said: "You 
look as if you were going to die." I had weighed 147 at the beginning; now 
found that I had lost ten pounds; and an extra month in the country was re- 
quired for recuperation. The culprit was committed to jail and indicted, but 
when I was ready for trial in December, he was released, and I was told that the 
Catholics about town said I had saved his life. Years after I had the satisfac- 
tion of learning that a Canadian Frenchman, whom I had selected as the mur- 
derer, had confessed the crime on his death-bed to a Catholic priest. 

I sang as far back as I can remember, and, at the age of six, I regularly at- 
tended a singing school. My voice as a boy reached C above the staff with the 
G clef, and a tenor singer once told me it was the sweetest voice he had ever 
heard; it changed to a basso prof undo, going down to B flat below the staff with 
the F clef, and a singing teacher said he did not believe there could be found its 
equal in the county. It could be heard over a 
hundred singers. I now went into the church 
choir and soon became its leader. By request, I 
taught several singing classes in connection with 
terms of the academy. For the benefit of my 
health, I passed the winter of 1855-56 in Selma, 
Ala., where I taught two singing classes. There I 
listened to a speech by one Col. Buford who urged 
on his hearers the duty of going to Kansas with 
their slaves to aid in making of it a slave state. 
1 saw on the street of Selma a sale of house ser- 
vants that had belonged to a deceased physician; 
I was invited to the sale of 400 negroes by the 
creditors of one Goldsbury at Cahaba, which I de- 
clined; and I had knowledge of many of its evils 
that confirmed my abhorrence of slavery. 

On April 20, 18G1, a mass meeting was held in 
the town hall of Ludlow, to consider the grave 

situation arising from the firing on Fort Sumter by secessionists, and, after 
much speaking by others, "Volney Fulham" was called out, and ended the last 
speech of the occasion with a call for volunteers to fight for the preservation 
of the Union, when a list of forty-six was made with my name at the head. 
The number was increased by those that came to the office to enlist, and, on 
April 26th, a militia company was organized under the state laws, of which I 
was elected Captain. 

H. Henry Baxter, agent of the railroad for finishing abandoned sections in 
1849 and acquainted with proceedings during the riot, was Adjutant and In- 
spector General in 1861; and, learning of the movement in Ludlow, he sent, 
unsolicited, a recruiting commission to the captain to enlist 83 officers and men 
for two years' service, under an act of the Legislature of Vermont, at its late

special session. When nearly the number had been enrolled, it was learned 
from Washington that no troops would be accepted for a shorter term than 
three years; new papers were received, and, in a township containing about 
1,700 inhabitants was formed one of the best companies that entered the ser- 
vice, many volunteers coming to enlist from neighboring towns, and in one 
case, six coming together from a town 27 miles away. At the organization. 
May 22d, I was elected captain by a unanimous vote of the enlisted men; and we 
were mustered, June 20th, as I Co. 2d Vt. Vol. Inf., into the U. S. service, the 
regiment being the first for three years raised in Vermont. 

We went to Washington, marching with loaded muskets and full cartridge- 
boxes, through Baltimore, where the Gth Mass. had been mobbed; and became 
part of Col. Oliver O. Howard's brigade, in Heintzelman's division of the Army 
of the Potomac; and the 2d Vt. was the first regiment of the celebrated First 
Vermont Brigade, formed under Gen. W. F. Smith in September. The only 
fighting by Vermont troops in 1861 was at Bull Run. The Second Vermont left 
camp at Claremont, Va., July 16th, in light marching order, leaving knapsacks 
and tents behind, and on the night of the 20th, lay on the ground near Center- 
ville, under orders to march at 2 a. m. of Sunday, July 21st, when 28,000 raw 
soldiers were to attack the enemy in a stronghold selected and held by them 
weeks before. Howard's brigade was posted some miles away until nearly 1 
o'clock p. m., when it was sent to the front at such speed that only the strongest 
could endure it. Private Perry G. Wells went with canteens for water, and I 
took his musket; as he could not overtake us, I bore it into the fight and dis- 
charged from it cartridges taken from handy boxes or given me by the wounded. 
Only about 43 of I Co. went into action. After varying successes on each side, 
when victory for the Union arms seemed assured, at about 3 p. m. re-enforce- 
ments for the enemy, that swelled their numbers to 32,000, and gave them 10 
more guns than we took into the field, arrived and turned it into a defeat. In 
the engagement seven of I Co. had received serious injuries: Lieutenant Isaac N. 
Wadleigh was disabled by a shot or shell that passed so near his back as to 
render him unable to walk alone, which caused his resignation in the fall, and 
from which he never recovered; Sergeant Ethan Allen Priest was wounded in 
the thigh by a piece of shell; Corporal Harvey K. Austin, wounded in the knee, 
and Vernon A. Marsh, pierced through the neck by a bullet, were discharged for 
disability on account of their wounds; Harry Tole and Joseph Osier received 
gunshot wounds from which they recovered; and John Leonard, wounded in the 
arm, was captured and died Sep. 7th in prison at Richmond. In falling back 
from its advanced position where the Second Vermont was in front, as was, 
generally, the First Vermont Brigade during the war, I Co. preserved its regular 
formation when no other organized body of Union troops was in sight, for which 
the commendation of Col. Howard was then received; and this order was pre- 
served until, by the stampede of gun carriages, caissons, and baggage-wagons 
along the narrow path of retreat, its ranks were broken, and the men were 
mixed in hopeless confusion with other troops. I then took charge of Lieut. 
Wadleigh, a man taller and nearly fifty pounds heavier than I, who was being 



90 fulha:\i. 

helped along by two soldiers. With one arm around him, and the other bear- 
ing his sword and revolver, I led and supported him with frequent rests by the 
way for many hours, and until, on arriving at our last place of bivouac near 
Centerville, Va., with many stragglers gathered by the way, he was sent in a 
baggage-wagon at night to a hospital in Washington. About 9 o'clock a. m. of 
July 22d, the Second Vermont arrived in a rain storm at its camp, "Bush Hill," 
whence the troops were sent in detachments by rail about four miles to Alex- 
andria. I remained in camp until every other officer of the 2d had left, and 
went in with the last train about 6 p. m. in a torrent. At the station in Alex- 
andria many soldiers were sleeping on the platform, drenched with rain, but 
unconscious that they were wet; and required the roughest treatment to arouse 
them. They were taken to the Market where I Co. was assembled; and Col. 
Howard, passing and learning the situation, assisted me to find quarters for the 
men in a hall over the Custom House, where they were provided with rations. 
I found lodgings for myself and my First Lieut., Sherman W. Parkhurst, in the 
house of a Union family, that of John Ogden, whose acquaintance I had made in 
passing through the city before; and, at about dark, after sixty-three waking 
hours, nearly all on my feet, I stretched myself with my Lieutenant upon a 
feather bed spread on the floor, where I slept fourteen hours continuously. On 
July 23d, I shook hands w^ith President Lincoln and Secretary Seward in their 
carriage before the Custom House, and, probably, was as fit for service as any 
man of the Second Vermont. 

An all-day's march from Chain Bridge to Great Falls, Va., escorting artillery 
and stores through a drenching rain on August 23d, and lying in wet clothes 
the following night, induced a return of my old malady, which rendered me unfit 
for duty. This condition was aggravated by the necessity of lying on the 
ground at night on any extended excursion from camp; after a medical exam- 
ination, 30 days' leave of absence was granted me; and, on Dec. 19, I left camp 
for Vermont. On Dec. 23d, by invitation of Governor Holbrook, elected in Sep- 
tember, I went to Brattleboro, where I was consulted as to the feasibility of 
sending some portable barracks, then occupied by the 8th Vt. Inf. in the Fair 
Grounds, for use as field hospitals by the Vermont troops in Virginia, which I 
advised against as impracticable. On January 11, 1862, in answer to his tele- 
gram, I visited Gov. Holbrook again and was tendered the office of lieutenant 
colonel of the Seventh Vermont Infantry then being raised and encamped at 
Rutland, which I accepted; and, having been discharged from the Second by 
the War Department to enable me "to accept a higher position," my new com- 
mission was dated Jan. 19, 1862. 

As second in command, my position was peculiar. On joining the Seventh I 
heard it talked of as a reorganization of the First Vermont, a militia regiment 
sent out at the beginning of the war for three months' service near Fortress 
Monroe, and brought back with no man killed in action; from the survivors 
of which thirty-four officers had been commissioned in other Vermont regiments 
before the mustering of the 7th. Col. Roberts of the 7th, a brother-in-law of 
Gen. Baxter, had been first lieut. of K Co. in the 1st; and, besides him, 1 



FULHA^I. 91 

captain, 3 lieutenants, 3 sergeants, 3 corporals, and 4 privates of the 1st, were 
commissioned in the 7th. Before my appointment one of the Governor's staff 
asked my views as to my becoming major of the 7th, leaving the lieutenant 
colonelcy for the Governor's son, 19 years old, then 1st lieut. in F Co. of the 
4th Vt. Inf., mustered Sep. 20. I replied that the Governor would decide as to what 
the good of the service required, as I had no knowledge of the qualifications of 
his son, never having heard of him, although we were in the same brigade. 
I afterwards learned that this son had applied to the brigade commander, G^n. 
W. T. H. Brooks for leave of absence on the ground that: "My father, the 
Governor, meditates promoting me"; to which Gen. Brooks replied: "On the 
whole, lieutenant. I think we won't disturb the meditations of the Governor." 
The lieutenant did not come to Vermont until his appointment as major. It 
was understood that the 7th would be sent to the other Vermont troops in Vir- 
ginia, and I apprehended no embarrassment from aspirants to my position. 

The principal labor of drilling fell to me. I was quartered at the Fair Ground, 
in a Sibley tent, from Jan. 14, 1862; and I generally slept there with a blanket 
and a bundle of straw in a box, often with a temperature of twenty degrees 
below zero, for nearly two months. My drilling was as directed by the War 
Department and practiced in Virginia. In battalion, I would explain an in- 
tended movement to the commanders of companies, and give the order, which 
would be followed by confusion and: "Halt!" Another explanation would follow 
with the same results. At first I attributed this to the dullness of officers taken 
from a remnant of the 1st, but finally discovered that, added to this, was some 
knowledge of an antiquated system of tactics employed by the militia, which 
they, apparently, intended to follow. I learned too. that when Colonel Roberts 
drilled in my absence, he used the militia methods, both in evolutions and in 
the manual of arms. This was a great hindrance to progress, especially in a 
field of snow with the commander on foot. 

The Eighth Vermont, raised under a separate act of the Legislature, was en- 
listed earlier than the 7th, and the commission of its colonel bore date Nov. 12, 
while that of the colonel of the 7th was dated Dec. 5th; but Col. Roberts told 
me he did not mean to be outranked by the col. of the 8th, and should fill up 
the 7th as fast as possible and have it mustered first. This resulted in the 
enrolling of men older than the legal limit and others unfit for service; but the 
7th was mustered six days before the 8th, which, nevertheless, left the state first 
and reached its destination before the 7th, with 73 more men and, as shown by 
results, with much more competent officers. Soon after muster, it was rumored 
that the 7th would go with the 8th to the Department of the Gulf, as the Governor 
wished his son to be under Gen. John W. Phelps of Brattleboro. I have a letter 
of the Governor in which he says: "The reason which impelled myself. Gen. 
Washburn, and Gen. Davis to request that the 7th Vt. Regt. should be sent to the 
Department of the Gulf was founded on the high respect and confidence we all 
reposed in General John W. Phelps, both as a man and a thoroughly trained and 
experienced officer, and who would be of benefit to the whole Regiment. It was 
the Regiment rather than simply my son which engaged our thoughtfulness in 



92 FULHAM. 

the matter." The 7th went to New York March 10th, where the right wing 
under Col. Roberts, on the ship "Premier," and the left wing under the Lt. Col., 
on the ship "Tamerlane," embarked on the 11th. We did not sail until the 16th, 
and on the 15th, learning that no fresh meat had been provided for the voyage, 
I ordered and receipted for enough to supply both vessels, having that for the 
"Premier" sent to it down the harbor. 

The Tamerlane arrived at Ship Island on April 10th, five days after the 
Premier; and it soon appeared that the 7th Vt. was not in favor with Gen. B. F. 
Butler, the Department Commander. For many years he had been a Democratic 
politician and a lawyer in the neighboring state of Massachusetts, whence his 
unenviable reputation had extended to Vermont; and w^hen he appeared at a 
session of Vermont Legislature in the fall of 18G1, asking that the two regiments 
then provided for become part of his "New England Division" being raised for 
service against New Orleans,* only the 8th, was authorized for that service. 
The colonel and the lieutenant-colonel, appointed to this at his request, were 
Democratic politicians of Vermont, who had been his associates at the Charles- 
ton Convention of I860, at which he had voted persistently for Jefferson Davis 
as candidate for President. The 8th. was armed and equipped at the expense of 
the Government. These circumstances furnish the only conceivable motive for 
Gen. Butler's abuse of the 7th Vt. herein described, begun at Ship Island and 
continued while he remained commander of the department. 

While directing the erection of my tent, I was summoned to headquarters, 
where I found Gen. Butler sitting at a desk with pen, ink, and paper. I was 
allowed to stand while he examined me, writing down the answers as to the dis- 
embarking of the left wing of the 7th. f The animus prompting this inquisition 
was so obvious that the replies were guarded, and, not being under oath to tell 
the whole truth, I said only what the questions required. I was curtly dis- 
missed, and, on reaching my tent, I found Col. Roberts anxiously awaiting me. 

Col. Roberts told me that, when informed of the arrival of the Tamerlane, 
Gen. Butler had sent him an order to disembark the troops with the steamer 
"Saxon"; and he, presuming that this implied the bringing ashore, with the 
troops, of such things as were absolutely essential to protect them from the 
burning sun and frequent storms of that island of sand, only a few feet above 
the waters of the gulf, and to render them comfortable after thirty days con- 
finement on shipboard, had directed the quarter-master to bring, also, the tents 
and messchests. This had detained the Saxon half an hour longer, while Gen. 
Butler wanted her, and, on learning the cause, he swore that somebody should 
lose his commission for it. Col. Roberts, hearing of this and fearing for himself, 
had agreed with the quarter-master to assume the responsibility, and now wished 
to learn whether anything had been revealed in the interview that would inter- 
fere with his arrangement. He was reassured by the account given, and the 
quarter-master was put under arrest; but, as his services were indispensible, he 

*See "Butler's Book," pagre 300. in which he says that he also asked "from Vermont a battery 
in addition." which was refused him.

ter which he seems to have patterned. But his appearance before Gen. Scott was voluntary.

was scon released. A furious tempest of wind and rain that prostrated many 
tents, wetting the occupants, arose that night; and the interpretation given to 
Gen. Butler's order prevented much suffering, and probably saved many officers 
and soldiers from sickness or death. 

The 7th Vt. was attached to Gen. Phelps's brigade, but on May 3d a detach- 
ment of 235 officers and men under the Major was sent to garrison Fort Pike; 
and, on the capture of New Orleans by Farragut's fleet, the rest of the 7th went 
to Carrolton on the Mississippi, a few miles above the city, where it encamped. 
May 16, near a parapet erected by secessionists to command the northern ap- 
proaches. A crevasse in the levee soon made it necessary to build an embank- 
ment around the camp to prevent its being flooded; and, when the water receded, 
tb^ surrounding country was covered with decaying animal and vegetable de- 
posits, "'>'iich produced much sickness. Col. Roberts was attacked by fever, and, 
on May 23d he went to the hospital; the Surgeon was in attendance on him; and 
the Adjutant soon followed; and many officers and men were prostrated by 
malarious diseases. 

In this state the 7th Vt. probably was the least fit for active service of all 
regiments in the department, but, on June 6th, Gen. Butler sent an order that the 
7th be ready to embark the next day on a steamer, referring to a general order 
that permitted the taking of neither horses nor tents and very little baggage. 
The 7th was ready as ordered, and, no steamer having appeared on the morning 
of the 10th, I went to New Orleans by boat; was waiting in an anteroom of the 
Custom House when Gen. Butler passed through to his office without noticing 
me; sent in my name by an orderly immediately; followed it with a written 
request to see him on business relating to the regiment, several times repeated 
without success, although many civilians were admitted meantime; and re- 
turned to camp by the last boat to find the 7th embarking on the steamer 
"Iberville," evidently sent there after Gen. Butler knew that the commander of 
the regiment was seeking an interview with him at his office door. 

The daily reports to department headquarters contained full information of 
the condition of each regiment, but I wished to know that Gen. Butler under- 
stood that of the 7th Vt., and get leave to take a horse and such equipage, 
essential to efficient service, especially with a regiment that had but one field 
officer and no adjutant with it, as properly might be carried on a river steamer. 
Gen. Butler evidently did not intend to permit an interview, and while I w^as 
waiting in the Custom House, without notice to me, sent the Iberville, by which 
I might have returned to Carrolton, with orders to embark the 7th Vt. and 
proceed up the river, it might have been without an officer above the rank of 
captain, and leaving the commander behind, had I waited longer to see Gen. 
Butler. Soon after my arrival the Iberville started up the river with a frag- 
ment of the 7th, consisting of 591 enlisted men and 23 officers; and leaving the 
Colonel, the Major, the Adjutant, and the Surgeon behind; the commander of the 
regiment having no knowledge of the destination or object of the expedition. 
I had given the Surgeon a special order to go with a supply of medicines, but 
we had only the Assistant Surgeon, and the medical supply was insufficient. 



94 FULHAAI. 

On June 11th the Iberville stopped at Baton Rouge, where the 7th Vt. became 
part of Gen. Thomas Williams's command, and was joined, June 15th, by B 
Co. with the Major who immediately reported sick, and for some time was off 
duty. On June 19th Gen. Williams embarked with two batteries and four regi- 
ments, including the 7th Vt. with only one field officer reported for duty; but 
leaving behind other regiments fully officered and equipped. June 24th we 
went up Bayou Pierre some miles, where a force of artillery and infantry landed 
and marched about seven miles under a broiling sun, to get in rear of Grand 
Gulf and troops of the enemy, supposed to be there. The 7th Vt. started with 
about 500 men, its commander being the only field officer without a horse, and 
the Assistant Surgeon returning to the boat, as was discovered when he was 
needed. The expedition only threw a few shells after a fleeing enemy, but the 
7th Vt. left several men insensible by the way, without medical aid. Before re- 
embarking at Grand Gulf, a soldier of the 7th brought me a young race-horse, 
found hitched on a bluff above the town, where it probably had been abandoned 
by a spy, which afterwards did excellent service. 

On June 25th we arrived at the point opposite Vicksburg, then seven or eight 
feet above the river, by which it had been flooded, leaving many pools, then 
stagnant, the breeding places of mosquitoes and malaria. Here the soldiers 
were quartered without tents, drinking the muddy Mississippi water, and har- 
rassed by insects, amid the incessant roar of near-by mortars that threw shells 
into Vicksburg night and day, while a hopeless attempt was made to cut a ship 
canal through the point, nearly a mile and a half,* with some 1,200 negroes 
impressed from plantations below. Only surface water ran into the ditch, but 
the fatalities were appalling. Forty-two men of the 7th Vt. died of disease in 
July. Col. Roberts reported for duty and took command July 8th; and, having 
been in ill-health since leaving Baton Rouge, I reported unfit for duty on the 
14th, and continued so until August 1st. 

It was rumored that the enemy had built an "ironclad" up the Yazoo, and, on 
July 15th, Com. Farragut, whose fleet had passed by Vicksburg in the night and 
was anchored above the point, sent a gunboat to explore. The ironclad "Ar- 
kansas," a formidable craft, was found with steam up, and began firing. The 
gunboat, being outclassed, started down the Yazoo followed by the Arkansas, 
shots being exchanged between them. When the firing was heard it was sup- 
posed that the gunboat was shelling some force of the enemy on shore, until 
she came into view closely followed by the Arkansas, which passed through the 
fieet and anchored safely under the guns of Vicksburg, planted singly at every 
salient point along the hill-side. An unsuccessful attempt was made with the 
"Essex," the only ironclad in the fleet, to cut out the Arkansas, in which the 
Essex was struck by nearly a hundred shots from Vicksburg. This was in full 
view of the officers of the 7th Vt. on the "Ceres." 

When the ditch-digging was abandoned it became necessary to return the 
negroes to the several plantations whence they had been taken, and the Ceres 
was used for the service, at night, conducted by an officer who brought his own

guard. Some days before 350 of the Tth's sick had been sent do^Ti the rivei 
aboard the "Morning Light." The officers of the 7th were on board the Ceres, 
and, by direction of Col. Roberts, I called on Gen. Williams and inquired 
whether they should go ashore; he said "no," and we remained aboard having 
no connection with the affair. Want of prudent forethought led to landing the 
negroes on the way down; news of the first landing went to Vicksburg; and a 
battery was sent to intercept the Ceres in her return. About half past three 
a. m., July 23d, near Warrenton, where the channel was on the Mississippi side 
of the river, we were roused from sleep by the crash of artillery and the crack 
of rifles. Having no convoy, our only hope was to keep up steam and escape 
in the darkness, our lights being out. I had partly dressed when a cry came 
from the captain of the boat to the crew, all southerners: "For God's sake don't 
leave the boat!" Revolver in hand, I started for the lower deck; when near 
the entrance to the cabin I fell, but recovered and accomplished my undertak- 
ing; the steam was kept up and we got beyond reach of the enemy, the Ceres 
being riddled with solid shot, grape, and cannister from 32 discharges of artil- 
lery, counted by Com. Farragut in the fleet. My cap would not go on; feeling 
of my forehead, I found a contusion that prevented; and my beard was full of 
blood. When lights were brought, Capt. Lorenzo D. Brooks of F Co. was found 
dead in the cabin near where I fell, killed by a six pound shot that had passed 
through his body. 

On July 24th the fleet and all the troops started down the river for Baton 
Rouge, where the 7th arrived July 2Cth and encamped in tents outside the 
town about a mile from the river. Here we received pay for March and April, 
the flrst since leaving Vermont. Baton Rouge had been occupied by Union 
troops since May; but, although our force was small and the position much ex- 
posed to attack, on August 5th, not so much as a rifle-pit had been made for its 
defense. The whole detachment to Fort Pike had now returned, but nearly 
two-thirds of the 7th Vt. were on the sick list, and, on the morning of the 4th, 
only 18 officers and 293 enlisted men were for duty. From these were detailed 
the Major, as field officer of the day; and one officer and 42 men for outpost 
guard duty; and none of these was relieved until after the battle of the 5th, 
so that, in the morning, not more than 267 officers and men were in camp for 
duty. About half of the sick were in hospital near the river, and the rest, 
mostly able to take care of themselves, were in camp; a few of these joined their 
companions in the ranks when the line of battle was formed; the rest, when 
bullets began to pierce the tents, were ordered to seek safety near the river, 
carrying their arms and knapsacks, when able; and a few joined us from the 
hospital. 

At half past three in the morning of August 5th, firing was heard from the 
outposts. At a quarter past four there was fighting by troops encamped in 
front of the 7th Vt., discernible only by the sound, on account of a dense fog 
through which nothing could be seen beyond fifty yards. The line of the 7th 
was in front of its tents, and, after it was formed. Col. Roberts first told me 
that, some days before, Gen. Williams had directed him, in case of an attack, 



96 FLXHAM. 

to take this position and await orders, unless there should be sharp fighting 
near, when, if he thought best, he might go to the aid of our forces engaged. 
The camp of the 21st Indiana was nearly in front of that of the 7th Vt., and, 
when fighting began, it was supposed that the 21st was engaged there. Both 
musketry and artillery shots reached us from that direction, a six pound shot 
striking the ground in front, rebounding, hitting a man in D Co. and coming to 
rest within ten feet of me. Col. Roberts now was told that the principal at- 
tack was expected farther to the left; he moved the 7th in that direction, and 
soon took a third position still farther in front. 

It now became important to ascertain whether the 21st Indiana w^as near its 
camp; and an experienced officer would have sent a man on foot to learn it 
rather than his second in command, but, at Col. Roberts's order, I rode forward 
to investigate. I learned from a sentinel in the camp of the 21st that his 
regiment had moved farther to the right, and I returned through a heavy fire 
unharmed. On receiving my report, Col. Roberts moved the 7th forward and 
halted before a cornfield on what appeared, from the sounds issuing from it, 
to be rising ground occupied by a battery. Before it could be ascertained 
whether this was friend or foe, a cannon shot from the rear, coming through 
the fog, struck within three feet of our sergeant major, followed by a shell 
from the cornfield, that passed over us. Col. Roberts now sent me to commu- 
nicate with our battery in rear, and began a movement to the right. 

The battery was the 4th Mass., and, when I had explained our situation to its 
commander, I galloped towards the spot where I expected to find the 7th. The 
clatter of horse's hoofs up the road attracted the attention of an enemy in front, 
a volley of musketry wounded my horse, and I was forced to find another way 
in a detour to the right by a street in the outskirts of the town. I met and 
caught Col. Roberts's horse but had to abandon it when again under fire. In 
rear of our camp I met a body of soldiers retreating in disorder, which I was 
told was part of the 14th Maine. I halted and brought them into line, when, dis- 
covering a lieutenant colonel among them, I left them in his care, I soon 
found the 7th Vt. retiring by the flank, and brought them into line facing the 
front, when I learned what had occurred in my absence. 

Col. Roberts had brought the 7th back to its first position, when Gen. Williams 
rode up, and, inquiring: "What regiment is that?" ordered it to fire into the 
woods before it, which was done, without knowing what force was to be affected 
by the fire, the fog and smoke still hiding it from view. The muskets were 
aimed in the direction from which the sounds of firing came, and this new firing 
line attracted the attention of the enemy, who returned the fire vigorously. 
After a few discharges from the 7th, an officer of the 21st appeared, threw down 
his cap and sword, and cried: "For God's sake stop firing, you're firing into us!" 
Col. Roberts gave the command: "Cease firing," and fell, pierced by two bullets 
from which he died the second day after. Others of the 7th were wounded, of 
whom some died, but no soldier of the 7th Vt. was killed on the field. Col. 
Roberts had to be borne by soldiers to a hospital in town, no surgeon of the 7th 
being nearer; and the regiment being under fire which they could not return, 
Capt. Porter had ordered a retreat. 



fulha:\i. 97 

It appeared that the left flank of the 21st Indiana, in its last position, had 
lapped for a short space the right of the 7th Vt. which was not perceptible to 
Col. Roberts and was unknown by Gen. Williams when he directed the firing; 
and that some shots from the 7th had taken effect on this part of the 21st. 
In the court of inquiry Capt. Grimsley testified that he commanded the 21st 
Indiana when their colors were "not furled," and that, when they received the 
two volleys from the Seventh, they ran under a fire already going on. However 
this may be, the firing into the 21st Ind., if the fault of any one, was that of Gen. 
Williams, who directed it, and not of Col. Roberts; and the principal part of the 
fire took excellent effect on the enemy, as was afterwards asserted by men of 
the 21st Indiana. 

Gen. Williams had been shot dead from his horse soon after the fall of Col. 
Roberts; the ranking colonel had assumed command; and two mounted orderlies 
were sent to me, through whom a horse was procured in place of the disabled one. 
In this position the 7th Vt. was approached by one wing of another regiment 
with its lieutenant colonel, who, saying: "I can do nothing with them," asked 
leave to form it on the left of the 7th under my command, which was done; and 
they remained there until the colonel appeared with the rest of his regiment, 
and united his two wings. 

Our new commander, apparently to correct the irregular line and guard against 
flanking movements, now caused the more advanced troops to fall back to the 
line of the 7th Vermont, and, the fire of the enemy continuing, I made the 7th 
lie down to avoid it. Edward P. Sanders of A Co. now says: "When I asked the 
Colonel 'why don't you lie down?' he said, 'I hadn't thought of that.'" On 
visiting the hospital after the battle, Capt. Landon of E Co., not in the action, 
said to me: "I never heard a man praised as you have been by wounded men 
brought in here." The falling back of the 21st Indiana and the 14th Maine 
left their camps exposed to plunder, and they lost their camp equipage and most 
of their baggage, but the 7th Vt., although its tents were riddled with shot, lost 
nothing. The enemy had suffered severely and approached no nearer. At the 
request of an officer of the 4th Mass. Battery I now sent a sergeant and twenty 
men to assist in putting a new wheel on a damaged caisson, which they did, 
bringing it off the field in front, under fire. When the firing ceased all our 
troops were ordered back to a line within the town, where suitable preparations 
were made for resisting a force of the enemy, known to be much more numerous 
than ours. August 6th, we made an advance, en echelon, over the battle ground, 
and found that the dead and wounded of the enemy, left by them, greatly ex- 
ceeded ours. The ironclad Arkansas had come down the river to cooperate with 
the enemy's land force, but she ran aground and did not appear until the 6th. 
When her smoke was seen at Baton Rouge, the Essex was sent to explore; and, 
to save her from capture, the Arkansas was blown up and destroyed. 

Our forces now were assembled at a strong position on the river bank within 
the town, where a fortification was begun. On August 9th Gen. Butler issued 
order No. 57 from New Orleans, full of gratulation and laudation, in which 
each separate organization of Union troops at Baton Rouge was named in terms

of praise; as: "Michigan stood by Maine; Massachusetts supported Indiana; 
Wisconsin aided Vermont; while Connecticut, represented by the sons of the 
ever green shamrock, fought as our fathers did at Boyne Water."* When 
fortification had advanced enough to make our position defensible against ten 
times our number, by order of Gen. Butler from New Orleans, the work was 
suspended; on August 21st all the troops embarked and w^e went down the river 
with the fleet; and, on the 22d, w^e landed at our old camp in Carrolton, where, 
on the 23d, I was senior officer in command of the brigade. On Sunday the 24th 
we moved to Metarie Ridge, and during the day I saw the Lieut. Col. of the 8th 
Vt., editor of a Democratic paper in Woodstock for many years while I attended 
court there, and where one of our companies was raised, visiting the tents of 
officers of the 7th, but he did not call on me. He had been detailed in June as 
editor of "The Delta," operated in the interest of Gen. Butler at New Orleans, 
and resigned from the 8th seven days after Gen. Butler's removal from the 
command of the department, Dec. 23, 1862. And on Aug. 26th I received the 
following: 

"Headquarters Department of the Gulf, New Orleans, Aug. 25, 1862. 

Lieut. Col. Fulham, Commdg. 7th Vt. Regt. will report to these Headquarters 
with his regimental Roster, tomorrow morning by order of Maj. Genl. Butler, 
Commdg. 

A. F. PUFFER, Lieut. & A. D. C." 

No roster could be found, and, as no one had ever seen it, it is probable that 
Col. Roberts did not know that one was required. There had been no occasion 
for using it until then; the regimental papers never had been in my custody; 
and, in the eighteen days since I had become Senior Officer Commanding the 
Seventh Vermont, there had been neither time nor opportunity to' conform the 
affairs of the regiment to the requirements of the Army Regulations. 

Gen. Butler before had ordered that no recommendation for promotion should 
be sent to the Governor without passing through his hands; and, as the Major 
was sent for also, the purpose of the demand for the roster was apparent. I 
was not kept waiting this time, and Gen. Butler, on learning that no roster 
could be found, said he had prepared an order taking away the colors of the 
7th Vermont for their disgraceful conduct at the battle of Baton Rouge; and he 
stated its substance. As afterwards published — order 62 — it purported to be 
the result of a careful revision of "official reports of the action of August 5th." 
It contained the following: 

"Col. Roberts of the Seventh Vermont Volunteers, fell mortally wounded, 
w^hile rallying his men. He was worthy of a better disciplined regiment and a 
better fate. Glorious as it is to die for one's country, yet his regiment gave him 
the inexpressible pain of seeing it break in confusion when not pressed by the 
enemy, and refuse to march to the aid of the outnumbered and almost over- 
whelmed Indianians. The 7th Vermont Regiment, by a fatal mistake, had 

*The Xiuth Connecticut, referred to here, was composed of Irish Catholics; and Gen. Butler ap- 
pears to have been ignorant of the historic fact that, in the Battle of the Boyne, JuU* i, 1690, the Irish 
Catholics, the French, and their allies, under King James II. met with a disastro'us defeat by the 
Protestants of Ulster, the English, and their allies, under William III. 



FULHA^I. 99 

already fired into the same regiment they had failed to support, killing and 
wounding several. The Commanding General therefore excepts the 7th Vermont 
from General Order 57, and will not permit their colors to be subscribed with a 
name which could bring to its officers and men no proud thought. It is further 
ordered, that the colors of this regiment be not borne by them until such time as 
they have earned the right to them, and the earliest opportunity will be given to 
this regiment to show whether they are worthy descendants of those who fought 
with Allen,* and with Stark at Bennington." 

The order then specifically praises every military body at Baton Rouge 
excepting the Seventh Vermont; commends two regiments that, "being posted in 
reserve were not brought into action, but held their position"; names 84 men in 
terms of commendation, including 1 general, 5 colonels, 3 majors, 11 captains, 18 
lieutenants, 3 adjutants, 1 Mass. assistant surgeon, 15 non-commissioned officers, 
and 11 privates; makes honorable mention of one horse killed, and two wounded; 
and names "John Donaghue, 4th Massachusetts Battery, who brought off from 
the camp of the 7th Vermont their colors at the time of their retreat." 

The only evidence in support of this charge was in the report of the Captain 
of the 4th Mass. Battery in which he said: "John Donaghue brought off from 
the camp of the Seventh Vermont their camp colors at the time of their retreat." 
Although Gen. Butler was a militia officer, it may be presumed that he knew 
the difference between "camp colors" and the colors of a regiment. The 4th 
Mass. Battery, as has been stated, fired into the 7th Vt. from our rear; it ap- 
parently was in front of our camp afterwards, where it left a disabled caisson 
which men of the 7th helped to recover; and, probably at this time, John 
Donaghue brought away a little fiag borne by the marker in battalion drill, at 
the point where a change of direction is to be made in marching. It had been 
worn out, torn from its short staff, and used as a blotter by the adjutant from 
whose tent it was taken, with some guidons used for the same purpose, bearing 
only the numeral "7." The regimental fiag of the 7th, during every moment of 
the action of Aug. 5th, was in the hands of our tall Color Sergeant, Sherman W. 
Parkhurst, 1st Lieut, in I Co. of the 2d Vt., who, having resigned in the fall of 
1861 because of heart trouble resulting from excessive exertion at Bull Run, 
of which he finally died, on learning that I was in the 7th Vt., from regard for 
me, sought a place there; and, all the offices being filled, accepted the position 
of color sergeant. He bore aloft the stars and stripes while every other man in 
the 7th but me lay dowTi, and after the battle, returned the colors to me. 

I made this explanation to Gen. Butler with a full statement of the part taken 
by the 7th Vt. in the battle of Baton Rouge, and a positive denial of every charge 
made by him against the regiment, the facts being within my personal knowl- 
edge, except what occurred during my absences directed by Col. Roberts, about 
which officers and soldiers agreed. In two interviews with Col. Roberts in the 
hospital, after the battle, he spoke of no misconduct of the regiment, and did 
not complain of his "inexpressible pain at seeing it break in confusion when not

pressed by the enemy," a charge manufactured by Gen. Butler for the occasion 
with no evidence in its support. After my refuting these charges he persisted 
in his purpose to publish them. He said that the 7th Vt. was undisciplined, 
and he thought it was my fault. As he made no pretence of misconduct on my 
part, and should have learned from the regimental reports that, out of 118 days 
in the department before the battle, I had been in command only 47, always 
where improvement in discipline was impossible, I perceived that this was not 
iclioUy his invention; and I understood the probable purpose of the editor of 
the Delta, in which this order (62) first appeared, in visiting my camp two days 
before. I described to Gen. Butler my peculiar position in the Seventh, and 
the obstacles to my disciplining the regiment while second in command. 

At Ship Island, finding captains incompetent, I took their companies, sepa- 
rately, and instructed them in a way to attract the attention of officers in 
near-by regiments. I find among my father's papers an extract, in his w^'iting, 
supposed to be from a letter sent by Capt. Henry F. Button,* afterwards Lieut. 
Col. of the 8th Vt., Aug. 31, 1862, to his father in Ludlow, as follows: 

"The fact is no more thorough officer existed in this department than Col. 
Fulham, his determination to make his men do things right without regard 
to friends was proverbial. When I saw his energy and the labor that he be- 
stowed on his men at Ship Island, I believed him to be one of the best oflBcers. 
I have seen but very little of him since but have seen no reason to change my 
mind. He however will suffer like all other men who happen to gain the ill 
w^ill of the powers that be." 

I do not remember that Col. Roberts ever attempted to drill the regiment in 
my presence; his method in my absence evidently w^as according to the tactics 
of the militia, of which some of the Seventh knew something, and w^hen I 
took up the method prescribed by the War Department, trouble arose. In one 
of the few essays at battalion drill, up the river, when I had instructed the 
commanders of companies how to proceed in the change of direction by a march- 
ing column at full distance, the captain of the leading company w^ent wrong 
three times before it was accomplished. In perhaps the only other attempt 
at battalion drill, up the river, with the column closed in mass by division, an 
attempt to countermarch the divisions was made. I instructed the chiefs of 
divisions how to proceed, but five trials were required before all could do it 
together. Moreover, Col. Roberts had been in command the last four weeks 
before the battle, under much more favorable conditions, during which I had 
been off duty 18 of the 20 days of my disability since joining the regiment at 

*This supposition arises from the following circumstances: On August 28, 1862. a few daj's af- 
ter my resignation, I dined with Major Charles Dillingham, one of the original captains in the 
Second Vermont, and Capt. Henry F. Button, in their tent at Algiers, La., across the Mississippi 
from New Orleans, when this matter was discussed: the letter contains: "Now as Col. Fulham is 
about going to Vt.. I take the occasion to write this and send it b^- him;'" the letter, probably, was 
deliveied to his father by me: and the quotation agrees with remarks by Capt. Button in other let- 
ters to his father and friends in Ludlow, written earlier in the season. 

A letter from my sister written June 22, 1S62. has this: ••Mr. Button had a letter from Henry 
yesterday and seems to feel better about him than he had since he went awaj'. He says 'Henry 
spoke Highly' of you, said you were the best officer we had out there,' &c." A letter accompany- 
ing this fronimy sister's husband says: "Henry Button writes home to G. L. Armington and oth- 
ers that you are acknowledged to be the best officer in the \-icinitv and he -wishes vou were Col. of 
the Sth."

Rutland. And yet, Gen. Butler, a lawyer versed in the rules of evidence, charged 
me with responsibility for lack of discipline, and asked: "Hadn't you better 
resign?" Conscious of a free expression to officers of the regiment of my 
opinion as to Butler's scheme for a ship-canal, I perceived that, during the visit 
of his emissary in my camp, officers, ambitious of promotion, probably, had in- 
formed him of my views, with the hope that another vacancy would be created, 
to which they might aspire; and that some of them might thus escape from the 
danger of court-martials, to which they knew they were liable. 

While the troops were on shipboard at New York it was ordered that no en- 
listed man should go ashore, and that no officer should stay away over night. 
One man on each vessel died on the outward voyage, the probable result of 
disobedience to this order. Some officers on the Tamerlane, who had dis- 
obeyed it, indicated by the character of the songs they were humming next day 
where they had spent the night, and I told them they could not go ashore again; 
when Col. Roberts learned of this he indicated his disapproval of the penalty 
for disobeying his order, but did not remove it. When about to go up the 
river, being commander of the regiment during the Colonel's disability in hos- 
pital, I sent a written order to our Surgeon in attendance on the Colonel there 
without notice to me of detail, to join the regiment. He did not go and I 
intended to court-martial him for this disobedience. On arriving at Baton 
Rouge I sent charges and specifications against him, which were returned "not 
approved" by Gen. Phelps, with the indorsement: "It appears that there was 
not as clear an understanding on this matter with Lt. Col. Fulham as there 
ought to have been, perhaps the fault is mine." I intended to court-martial the 
Assistant Surgeon, for going on board the boat without leave after we had 
disembarked up Bayou Pierre, June 24th, leaving the regiment without medical 
aid which soon became indispensable. On board boat up the river, a lieutenant 
had complained to me of another officer's lewd conduct with a laundress, for 
which I called him to account, and he tendered his resignation, approved by me 
June 30th; but he was returned to duty by Col. Roberts. An order was issued 
by Gen. Williams near Vicksburg, that commanders of regiments keep their 
troops well in hand so as to be ready for an attack at a moment's warning. I 
read this to the officers, and within two days certain of them were wanted for 
duty but could not be found; they did not appear for hours, and said they 
had been up the point, a distance of some three miles, for which I reproved 
them. I refused to permit the stealing of neighbors' property, expressly pro- 
hibited in general orders; and it was said by the people that the Vermont 
regiment was the only one that did not steal; but there was great grumbling 
over it. At the battle of Baton Rouge, we had three doctors, acting as surgeons, 
who remained a mile from the regiment; and several officers for duty who, 
absenting themselves, were asked to state in writing their reasons for being 
away from the regiment. One of these, a lieutenant in command of a company, 
replied: "Col. Roberts was wounded and some of the officers called to me to go 
for the Doctor (said to be immediately in rear of where we were then stationed), 
— which of the officers I do not now recollect. — I kept on until I reached the 



I<i2 FULHAM. 

Hospital, found the Doctors all there, and that they had neglected to send 
stretchers or anything else for the removal of the wounded; they sent 
the necessaries immediately, and I returned as soon as practicable." He did 
not arrive until after the battle, when I sent for him; and I saw Col. Roberts 
being carried away on a stretcher within ten minutes after he was shot. 

I have before me copies of two papers, one addressed to Gov. Holbrook, dated 
at Baton Rouge, Aug. 7, 1862, the day on which Col. Roberts died, requesting 
the promotion of the Governor's son, Major Holbrook, then twenty years old, to 
the colonelcy of the 7th Vt.; and the other a request to me to resign my "Com- 
mission in said Regiment, believing that the interest of the Regiment and the 
service would be materially promoted thereby." A note to the Governor accom- 
panying the originals and signed by the acting Adjutant, says: "Your com- 
pliance with this request would be very gratifying to both officers and men of the 
7th Vt. Regt. — Also duplicate of a request to Lt. Col. Fulham which shows the 
exact feeling existing in the Regt. Lt. Col. Pulham's promotion to the colonelcy 
would be very unsatisfactory. By the Staff and Line Officers." 

Although described as a duplicate, if another existed, none of the signers had 
sufficient courage to present it to me. As might be expected, the signers were: 
the Surgeon and the Assistant Surgeon, liable to court-martial; one that ran away 
to the hospital during the battle; one detected in immorality; all the officers 
required to send written statements of the reasons for leaving their posts during 
the battle of Baton Rouge; all those absent from the ship overnight in New 
York contrary to a special order of the Colonel; all those reproved for disobe- 
dience of a general order at Vicksburg; all that had belonged to the militia, 
except one that lived in Ludlow; and all but three of those with the regiment 
that were afterwards promoted to fill vacancies occasioned by the death of Col. 
Roberts and my resignation. The note also says: "The names of officers not on 
the paper [the request to the Governor] were left out by reason of their absence 
sick, at New Orleans." Capt. Landon, who spoke my praise in the hospital, 
signed neither papers, and Capt. Porter and Lieut. Dickinson did not sign the 
request to me; but neither had belonged to the militia regiment. Both requests 
were mailed at New Orleans to the Governor Aug. 13, 18G2, eight days before 
the 7th Vt. left Baton Rouge. The Revised Roster of Vermont Volunteers shows 
that the Surgeon resigned Sep. 8, that the lieutenant that ran away to the 
hospital resigned Sep. 27, and that "2 officers [unnamed and probably signers of 
the requests] were dishonorably discharged." 

After I had said what seemed sufficient to show that want of discipline in the 
7th Vt. should not be charged to me. Gen. Butler, still insisting, said: "I sup- 
pose you would resign if the Governor should appoint the Major over you [in- 
dicating knowledge of the petition to the Governor to appoint his son, already 
sent, which I had heard of through an officer that did not sign it], if you go 
home now you may get the command of a new regiment." I replied: "My 
resignation would be construed as an admission that I was at fault in connec- 
tion with the battle of Baton Rouge." He then said that he had heard no com- 
plaint of that sort and would so certify. I took a little time to consider, and 



FULHA^I. 103 

talked with the Major in waiting without, and evidently informed of Gen. 
Butler's purpose in calling us there. He seemed resigned to have greatness 
thrust upon him, and said: "I suppose I should be the youngest colonel in the 
service," which I did not doubt. Then, realizing that, with a man of his charac- 
ter, practically a dictator in New Orleans,* a fight with Butler was hopeless, I 
gave him my resignation on which he endorsed: 

"Accepted — Owing to Gen. Order in regard to the 7th Vermont at Baton 
Rouge, I feel bound to say in justice to Col. Fulham, that I have heard no com- 
plaint of his personal conduct in that affair. 

Benj. F. Butler, Maj. Gen. Commanding." 

On acquainting Gen. Phelps, a graduate of West Point and a veteran of the 
Mexican War, with my resignation, he said: '1 was once asked to resign; they 
can't fill your place in the regiment; you ought to have consulted mel" But, on 
hearing the particulars, he admitted that I was practically forced into it; and 
said: "I have resigned, and am waiting for the acceptance of my resignation at 
Washington; if you'll wait till then, we'll go home together"; but I thought it 
best to go at once. On the way, I called on the Governor and told my story, 
which apparently differed from what he had previously heard; and I marked 
his surprise on learning that no request to resign had been presented to me. 
This was my last interview with Governor Holbrook, but I have his letter in part 
as follows: 
"Col. Volney S. Fulham, Brattlel>oro, Vt., Aug. 11, 190G. 

"My Respected Friend: — I am sorry not to be able to reply definitely to your 
inquiries in your letter of the 9th inst. But alas, at the age of 93 years memory 
becomes dim and faint. . . . 

"I will say, most heartily, that I hold you in lasting respect and kind regard 
for your valiant services during the war; and beg leave to subscribe myself, 
with kindest wishes and regard, Your Friend, Frederick Holbrook." 

I arrived in Ludlow September 12, and soon after wrote an article covering 
nearly a page of the "Rutland Herald" of Sep. 25, 1862, and containing a full 
account of the part taken by the Seventh Vermont in the Battle of Baton Rouge, 
and most of what is written here about the officers of that regiment, without 
eliciting reply except from the Assistant Surgeon, who denied nothing directly; 
and all written of him could have been proved by many witnesses. 

A court of inquiry was demanded by the Legislature of Vermont; and although 
appointed by Gen. Butler, it fully exonerated the Seventh from all his charges. 
The vacancies were filled from the regiment, the Major being made Colonel by 
his father's appointment; and the other promotions produced the nearest prac- 
ticable approach to a reorganization of the 1st, whose survivors, apparently, 
regarded the service as a sort of military picnic, in which everybody could do 
as he pleased, and all might have a good time. 

*In "Butler's Book."' page 426, he says of his position in New Orleans: "It was impossible for 
tne to get a request to my government and an ans'wer back in less than thirty days, and usually a 
much longer time was required, so that I had no control attempted over me, "except in the matter 

of my treatment of foreign rebels Otherwise I was supreme. Having supreme power. I 

used'it in the manner I have set forth."

It was reported that Gen. Weitzel selected the 7th Vt. as a regiment of his 
brigade for active service; but that, at the request of its commander, it vv^as 
excused. In Nov., 1SG2, the Seventh was sent to Pensacola, Fla.; it was afterwards 
at New Orleans, and then at Mobile Point, Ala. The Revised Roster of Vermont 
shows that the 7th was longer in service than any other regiment from Vermont; 
that, with recruits, it numbered 1,572 officers and men; that 242 were discharged 
for disability; that 38 were taken prisoners; that 375 died of disease; that 15 
died of accidents; that 22 were W'Ounded; that 9 died of wounds; and that 2 
were killed in action, both officers. Of the two, Capt. Brooks was killed on the 
Ceres near where I fell, and Capt. Young was away from the regiment, acting 
on the staff of Gen. Ashboth. Of the twenty-tw^o, 11 were wounded in the battle 
of Baton Rouge; and of the nine that died of wounds, 6 received them at Baton 
Rouge. It follow^s that, after I left the Seventh Vermont, its casualties in ac- 
tion, with the regiment, were 11 enlisted men wounded, of whom 3 died; that, 
besides these, no one was killed or wounded in action, with the regiment, during 
more than three and a half years service between my resignation and the mus- 
tering out, March 14, 1866; and that this was less than the loss of the regiment 
at the battle of Baton Rouge where I was present; and less than twice the loss 
from I Co. of the Second Vermont, in the Battle of Bull Run; in which only 43 
of the company were engaged, while I was Captain. 

Soon after my return to Vermont, Solomon Foot, a prominent U, S. Senator 
of Rutland, long President of the Senate, sent me a message to the effect that, 
if I wished to command a new regiment, he would use his influence to have me 
appointed to one; but I said: "I went into 
the service because I thought I was needed, 
I am honorably out of it, and I shall not seek 
entrance again until I am needed again." I went 
to New York City for the practice of my pro- 
fession, and closely watched the military career of 
Benjamin F. Butler, whose generalship continued 
to show the same qualities exhibited in ditch- 
digging at Vicksburg. I noted his assuming the 
command of an expedition designed by his superior 
to be led by Gen. Weitzel, against Fort Fisher, 
where he thought glory awaited him; his attempt 
to demolish the fort by blowing up a powder boat 
on the shore opposite, as effective as would have 
been the discharge of fire-crackers; and his declar- 
ing before Congress that Fort Fisher could not be 
taken, immediately followed by the announcement 
that Gen. Terry had taken Fort Fisher. 

I lately read a pamphlet by the Rev. H. N. Hudson, Chaplain of the 1st N. Y. 
Engineers, who, after tendering his resignation, necessitated by the death of a 
member of his family and his own feeble health, was confined 53 days by Gen. 
Butler, with prisoners and fugitives, in 1864, for alleged "absence without leave," 




VOLXEY S. FL'LIIA.M AT 54. 



FULHA^I. 105 

with no charges against him. and until Butler was finally relieved of his com- 
mand; the real cause being the Chaplain's authorship of a criticism on Butler's 
generalship, that had appeared in a New York paper. Gen. Grant testified before 
the Joint Committee on the Conduct of the War, Feb. 11, 1865: "I received a 
letter from a lady here in this city telling me about this case. I immediately 
ordered Chaplain Hudson to report to me, and I had his case investigated, . . 
this was only a case of that sort, for which he should not have been confined at 
all, except in his own tent under arrest." John A. Andrew, War Governor of 
Massachusetts, in conversation with Chaplain Hudson, January, 1865, said: "In 
the first place, General Butler is utterly void of principle, so that there is no 
ground for confidence in him; in the second place his passions are so violent 
and so headstrong, that they are continually swamping his judgment; so that 
there is no ground for confidence in him, either moral or prudential." In view 
of these developments I have realized my good fortune in escaping from the 
clutches of Gen. Butler, as I did. 

In July, 1876, the failing health of my father, none of his family being with 
him, led me to give up my business in New York, retaining my residence there, 
to be with and take care of him. I have had considerable experience as a nurse 
of the sick. At the age of sixteen, I took almost the exclusive care of my mother 
during a sickness of some weeks. In my vacation, August, 1870, I took care of 
a nephew eight months old, three consecutive days, when he was dangerously 
sick, part of the first two days and nights and the whole of the third night 
alone, when his life was nearly despaired of. And, after joining my father in 
1876, I took almost the entire care of him, both day and night, when I was not 
necessarily out of town; and I was the only one with him when he died in 
November. After his death, I settled his estate, a very complicated affair that 
occupied several years, going to vote in New York and spending there such time 
as suited my convenience or pleasure. Towards the end, in a hearing before the 
Probate Court, the personal abuse of an attorney led me to inflict on him an 
oral chastisement for which he afterwards found revenge by inducing the listers, 
after eight years omission, to assess me for taxation as a resident of Ludlow, 
Vt., resisted by me. In New York City, after paying two annual taxes, small 
because my savings were invested in western lands, government bonds, or stocks 
in corporations that paid the taxes, the tax ofl5ce ceased to assess me; so that 
I had paid no personal taxes for years before I gave up my business, and could 
show no such payment as evidence of a residence there, which depended on my 
intent. As I refused to admit my residence in Ludlow by giving an inventory of 
my personal property to the listers for taxation, they assessed me as a resident 
for whatever sum they pleased. I might have reduced this to the true amount 
by giving them an inventory, had I been willing to acknowledge my residence 
In Ludlow, making oath to it, which I would not do because it was not true. 
I did not intend to reside there and would not do so against my will. On trial 
the jury found a verdict against me, which, after fighting it to the end of pos- 
sible resistance, I was obliged to pay; as also a second tax assessed on a list 
made after I had settled the estate and left the state with the necessity of re- 



106 FULHAM. 

turning for the trial of the suit still pending, on an increased list made by listers 
of whom the attorney was now one. The whole cost me more than a thousand 
dollars, and to avoid further extortion, I had either to keep out of the state or 
take residence in a Vermont town where I could find neutral fighting ground. 
I went to Rutland, twenty-five miles from Ludlow, where I gave an inventory of 
my taxable property. Two of the Rutland listers told me that some of the listers 
of Ludlow, one of them the attorney referred to, tried to induce them to assess 
me beyond the amount mentioned in my sworn inventory, but they did not 
succeed; and for thirteen years I remained a resident of Rutland. 

At a supper after the election of President Benjamin Harrison, Col. Charles H. 
Joyce, Major of the Second Vermont when I was Captain, acting as Toast Master, 
introduced me as "an original member of the Second Vermont, and so good an 
oflacer that he was the first promoted from the regiment." In 1901, to secure 
additional facilities for preparing the genealogy, I became a resident of Ludlow, 
and in the years that followed I have been employed exclusively in the work. 
The only secret societies I have ever belonged to are those growing out of the 
War of Secession, and I have devoted many years to preparation for publishing 
the Fulham GenealogJ^ The larger hand in plate on page 4 is mine.

moved to Boston in 1893. For some eleven years before his death he was the 
justice before whom most of the suits were tried in W. It is said in an obituary 
notice of him in the ''Deerfield Valley Times'": "Mr. Boyd was one of the kindest 
of men having always a smile and a pleasant word for all. He found his 
greatest pleasure in helping others, although he always gave his help in a modest 
and unostentatious way. For his native town Mr. Boyd had the greatest love, 
and he was at all times among the first to help any movement that was pro- 
ductive of good to Wilmington. The funeral service was held at the Universalist 
church Wednesday afternoon, at 2.30." He was a lifelong Universalist. 4 chil.

common schools of Westminster, and early engaged in the business of his father, 
the manufacture of chairs. The factory was burned in 1876, and he became 
manager of the Boston Chair Co. at Ashburnham; and the Leominster Rattan 
Works. He was a democrat and prominent in public affairs for many years, 
holding many offices in his native town and state. He was elected to the lower 
house of Massachusetts Legislature in 1875. He was a member of the Democratic 
State Central Committee for three years. And in 1888 he was a candidate for 
Presidential Elector. In 1890 he was elected Representative to the fifty-second 
Congress from the Eleventh Mass. District, always overwhelmingly Republican, 
over two strong Republican Candidates; being the first Democrat to represent 
that district. While in Congress he was a member of the Committee on Pacific 
Railroads, and of the Select Committee on Irrigation of Arid Lands in the 
United States. His congressional career was so satisfactory to his constituents 
that he received a unanimous renomination by his party, but being opposed by 
only one Republican nominee, he was defeated of course. His knowledge of 
Parliamentary Law led to his being chosen moderator of Town Meetings fre 
quently. He was a director of the Wachusett Fire Insurance Co., and was con 
nected with other financial interest in Ashburnham and Leominster. 3 chil

(2) and Francis Curtis (1), b. Dec. 17, 1809; d. Sep. 16, 1882; m. MARY S. HYDE. 
He left his home in Westminster, when a boy, with his clothes tied in a red 
bandana handkerchief, his mother paying his stage-fare to Boston, where he 
arrived with fifty cents in his pocket, his whole available capital. He went 
thence to East Bridgewater, Ms., to learn the mason's trade. At an early age he 
returned to Boston to engage in business, and at 18 he showed such capacity, 
that, with the aid of a capitalist that appreciated and trusted him, he entered into 
a large building contract that proved profitable, and was the beginning of a suc- 
cessful career, in which he became one of the largest contractors in Boston. At 
first he lived out of the city, and, starting from home as early as 4 o'clock A. M., 
if he arrived before light, he would lie on a pile of boards until it was light 
enough to work; and if any man in his employ was late he was not allowed to 
work that day. He erected large blocks of houses in the Highlands and other 
parts of Boston; the Fitchburg Railroad Station, from Fitchburg granite; the 
Boston Museum; the United States Hotel; and many Roman Catholic Churches 
of the city. He invested largely in real estate with such judgment and foresight 
that he realized great profits from it. He became a large holder of stock in the 
Boston & Albany Railroad Co., and the Roxbury Gas Co.; and in these and other 
ways accumulated a large fortune. For many years he was a Director of the 
People's Bank, and an Alderman of Roxbury. He hung the clock of the Fitch- 
burg Station on one of the coldest days of winter, without protection for his 
hands; and, being familiar with their hardships, was a friend of the deserving 
poor, helping many to become owners of homes. He died at his home near 
Boston, his wife surviving him.

1699; son of Benjamin and Mary (Buckminster) Dana, and grandson of the 
immigrant Richard and Anne (Bullard) Dana of Cambridge, Ms. Joseph became 
an innkeeper of Pomfret, Ct, where he, with his brothers Jacob and Daniel, 
owned one-twelfth of the Mashamogret Purchase of 15,000 acres. The town of 
Pomfret, Vt., named for the Ct. town from which many of its first settlers came, 
was chartered to "Isaac Dana and his associates." Isaac was an elder brother 
of Joseph; lot No. 6 stood on the Proprietor's Book in the name of Joseph Dana; 
and the next year after his death it was conveyed, 1779, to his son Joseph of 
Ipswich, Ms. There is no evidence that Joseph and Mary Dana ever lived in 
Pomfret, Vt.; their last place of residence apparently was in Lebanon, N. H., 
where both died; Joseph in 1778, but the date of Mary's death is unknown.

Winchester Dana; and records of deeds from Jonathan Dana of P. between 
that date and 1822, indicate that he lived there to the age of 86. He was

he was twenty-one years old. In "Sprague's Annals of the American Pulpit," 
Vol. 1, p. 597, it is said of him that: "He supplied the pulpit of the Old South 
Church, Boston, with much acceptance, for six months, and would, it is said, 
have received an invitation to a permanent settlement there but that his voice 
was thought scarcely adequate to fill so large a building." He was subsequently 
invited to Ipswich, and having remained there as a candidate for a year or more, 
he received a call from the church and society to become their pastor. He was 
ordained Nov. 7, 1765; received the degree of D. D. from Harvard in 1801; and 
he preached a sermon on the 60th anniversary of his ordination. 8 chil.

EVERETT.— FAIRBAXK S.

1869; son of Marshall Everett, from X. J., and Katharine Van Gorder, from Pa., 

of Livonia, Mich. — Marshall was a son of Isaac of Pa., and grandson of John 

Jacob Everett, who came from Woldorf, Ger., and was the godfather of John 

Jacob Astor, his kinsman, who employed Jacob, a surveyor, son of John Jacob 

Everett, to go to British Columbia to survey and buy furs. Jacob made many 

journeys in this employment, with a party of Indians; and, finally, he and all 

but one of his party were murdered in their tents, just as peace was declared 

after the Revolution. It was reported that Jacob Everett found a great treasure 

for his employer, who suddenly became very rich; 

and the father's life was embittered by Astor's 

neglecting to obtain justice for the slaughter of 

his son. John Jacob Everett was a powerful man 

and many stories are preserved of his strength and 

valor. He died fighting for his country. John 

Jacob Everett had a third son, John, the godfather 

of Mary Harvey's husband. The two brothers, 

Isaac and John, were killed; and Isaac's eldest son, 

Isaac, Jr., inherited all his father's property. The 

two younger sons, John and George, went to 

Michigan. John went on foot, and, at the age of 

19, took up a half section of land in Livonia, being 

assisted by Lewis Cass, a friend of his father. 

The Van Gorders came from Holland with the 
Dutch that settled in New York. Moses Van 
Gorder, father of Katharine, was sent to Austria 
and educated for a surgeon; and his wife, Diana, 
was a noted nurse and cancer doctor. Moses owned several farms, on one of 
which was built a block-house called Fort Decker, in which the husband of Mary 
Harvey was born. Moses Van Gorder was a surgeon under Baron Steuben, who 
sometimes stayed in the block-house. The settlement of Hollanders suffered 
greatly from raids, first of the French and Indians, then of the British: and in 
some of these Isaac and Marshall were slain. 3 chil. b. in Livonia, Mich.

GODDARD, from Godr, Scandinavian, one of the sacred race. 

The asserted "Divine Right of Kings," originally based on a claim of descent 
from gods, in the North of Europe, was derived from Odin, said to have been a 
Scythian who, fleeing before the ravages of Rome, penetrated with his tribe to 
Scandinavia; vanquished its petty kingdoms and clans by his military prowess 
and his superior intelligence; and, claiming to be of divine extraction, subjected 
them to his dominion. He was worshipped as chief of the gods and ruler of 
heaven and earth, his sons being high priests of the new religion, and supreme 
lords over the inferior rulers and their subjects. One descended from Odin was 
competent to offer sacrifice as priest and king; and, when, with his followers, he 
made descent on a foreign shore, he consecrated a spot to Odin; and became the 
Godord, Priest King of the country. 

Such expeditions were made to Iceland, to the Isles of the North, and to Great 
Britain. A. D. 920, Orry, a prince of Denmark, invaded the Orkneys and the 
Western Islands, and visited the Isle of Man, where he was welcomed by the 
natives, and made their king. He assumed the title of King of the Isles, and 
he was succeeded by eight descendants, ending with Fingal, son of Godred or 
Goddard, last of the Danish line. In the eleventh century Godred Croven, son 
of King Harold of Iceland, invaded Man with an army from Norway; defeated 
and slew Fingal and reigned in his stead, his followers mingling with the people; 
and their descendants still show evidence of their extraction from the sacred 
race of Odin. A golden cup of ancient workmanship called "Goddard's Cup," 
still preserved in Man, is regarded with superstitious reverence by the peasants. 
In Anglesay a peculiar drinking cup in common use is called a "Goddard"; and 
when the Welsh inhabitants ask for a drink they say, "Reach me a Goddard." 
It is said that a member of the Goddard family in North Wales has been taken 
by natives of Man for a Manxman, from his resemblance to them.* 

The advent of the Goddards in England is not recorded. The name appears 
in various parts of the country in ancient times. "In "Domesday Book.' A. D. 
1082, the Bishop of Baieux (Bayeux) hold Swindune, and Wadardus under him. 
In ancient writings, the 'W' was frequently spelt 'Gu.' Guadardus would be a 
very close (Latinized) approximation to Godard. In the reign of Henry IV, 
A. D. 1404-5, John Goddard, of Hye Swindon, and Thomas Polton, of Wanborough, 
conveyed some lands and houses to John Palmer, of Swindon. The deed runs: —

Papers by Richard Jefferies. London. England."

"Let it be known — Whereas, we, John Goddard de Hye Swindon, and Thomas 
Polton de Wembergh, have given to John Palmer de Hye Swindon, all the land 
and houses which lately we held by the gift of the said John Palmer, to be held 
by the aforesaid John Palmer, and his heirs forever. In testimony whereof our 
seals are appended. Witnesses — John Bray, Walter Taylor, Thomas Smith, 
John Coleshull, Thomas Broome, William Whyteman, John Edward, and many 
others. Dated at Hye Swindon, in the reign of Henry IV." Two seals of red 
wax were affixed. 

Three Goddards are named as landholders in Winton "Domsday," early in 
the twelfth century; and the Chancellor's Rolls, in 1202, show the names of 
Goddards in Leicester and Norfolk. Sir John Goddard was governor of Louviers, 
Normandy, in 1418; and John Goddard, Chevalier, held lands in York and 
Lincoln in 1421. A branch of the family with the Norman-French suffix "ville" 
to the name, probably added at the time of the Norman conquest, variously 
written Godarville, Goderville, and Godarvyle, established themselves in North 
Wiltshire, being first known at Chippenham; and from these are descended the 
North Wiltshire Goddards of the twentieth century. The suffix soon disap- 
peared; and their use of the "Godr," within the century following the last 
invasion of the Northmen, indicates a claim of descent from the sacred race of 
Odin. The coat of arms of this family differs from that of the Norfolk Goddards, 
but a handsome glass goblet containing nearly a quart, belonging to a Goddard 
of Cliffe, said to be one of many once in the possession of every Goddard family 
in England, indicates a common origin. 

"There is a curious printed document still preserved in Lawn, which appears 
to date from the time of Cromwell, and to refer to one of the numerous secret 
political societies formed at that period. It is a small oblong circular, six 
inches by four inches, engraved by Gutterlane. with a border of twelve coats of 
arms of various branches of the Goddard family in Wiltz, Leicester, Cheshire, 
Lincoln, etc. The printed matter reads: — 

"This is a friendly Meeting of those whose names be Goddard. Sr. Your 
Company is loueingly desyred only for societie and aquaintance. The times 
of meeting are the 5th day of every month in ye yeare except it be Sunday, then 
on ye day following; from Lady Day to Michaelmas at 6; from Michaelmas to 
Lady Day at 4 o'Clock in the after-noon. — At a Red Bull, behind St. Nicholas 
Shambles, called Mount Goddard Street." 

"This paper appears to have been printed before the Fire of London in 1666, 
because the places mentioned in it were then destroyed." 

The American Goddards descended from the Godarvilles of North Wiltz, where 
they have been known since late in the twelfth century. The record begins with

fief. Walter de Goderville, holding in Chipeham; and Emma la Warr under him." 
"In 1231-32, Walter Godarville was made castelan of Devizes Castle, either 
by the owner, Lord Ralf Willington, or directly by Henry HI. The Bishop 
of Winchester attempted to supplant Godarville by his nephew, Peter de Rivaulx, 
and thus obtain the custody of Hubert de Burgh, Earl of Kent once grand 
judiciary, who was a prisoner in the castle, with a view to his assassination. 
On the IGth June, A. D. 1233, Henry who was at Woodstock, wrote a letter to 
Godarville warning him not to leave Devizes, or to allow stores to be taken into 
the castle. The king sent again two days later, permitting Godarville, if the 
Sheriff of Wiltz should require his assistance, to accompany the sheriff with 
an armed force to the house of Gilbert Bassett, of Compton, to carry out the 
royal mandate — always provided, it was so ordered that nothing could be 
conveyed into Devizes Castle during Godarville's absence. In 1234 Godarville 
received an order from the king to despatch horses and arms to the assistance 
of the earl of JBrittany. Godarville appears to have enjoyed the confidence of 
the monarch." 

2 (II.) JOHN GODARD de Poulton, near Marlborough, son of Walter Godar- 
ville (1). 

3 (III.) JOHN GODARD de Poulton, Jr., son of John Godard (2), "Appears 
from 1386 to 1434; living in the reign of Richard II., and in the days of John of 
Gaunt. If the tradition that John of Gaunt gave an estate to the Goddard 
family at Upham, in Aldlx)urne, be founded in fact — and there is nothing to con- 
tradict it or make it unreasonable — it was probably this John Godard who re- 
ceived the gift, and stood face to face with Shakespeare's famous character. 

'Old John of Gaunt, time-honoured Lancaster.' " 

4 (IV.) WALTER GODARD, of Cherhill, son of John Godard (3) "Appears 
in 1460." 

5 (V.) JOHN GODARD de Upham, then spelled Uppam, died Mar. 10, 1545; son 
of Walter Godard (4), married Elizabeth, dau. of William Berenger, of Manning- 
ford Bruce. He "Became a large landed proprietor towards the end of the 
fifteenth century; and was in fact the founder of the family. He possessed 
property at Standen-Hussey, Cliffe Pypard, Swindon, Berwick Bassett, Clatford, 
etc., and established his sons in those places; from whom branched out the 
Goddards of Engleshaw, South Marston, Castle Eaton, Rudloe, Hartham, Purton, 
etc. . . . His second son. Thomas, was the ancestor of the Goddards of Swindon." 
John Goddard had a grant of Land from Henry VIII., in 1541, in Wanborough 
(Wanburg) and in Upham. After the dissolution of monasteries John Goddard 
of Upham purchased some land at Westlecote, Swindon, which had belonged to 
the nuns of Locock Abbey; having been given to them by Catherine Lovel. 
This was the nucleus of the present large estate held by Goddard of Swindon. 
In 1539 the master of Wiltz in the chapter-house of Westminster, contains 
entries of Wlllyam Godeard (under-tithing of Cherell). Aldeborne; and John 
Goddard, gentylman, three harness (?). He appears to have been succeeded 
in the Swindon and Upham estates, or part of them, by Thomas Goddard, who 
was commemorated by the monument in Aldbourne Church. 



156 GODDARD. 

6 (VI.) THOMAS GODDARD of Upham, d., 1597, son of John Goddard (5), 
married "Anne, sister of Sir George Gifford, Buckingham; from whom descended 
the Goddards of Swindon; and secondly Jane, daughter of John Ernie, of Can- 
nings, Wiltz, and Ernie, Sussex; from whom descended the Goddards of Hart- 
ham." Apparently, he succeeded his father in the Swindon and Upham estates, 
or part of them. "Thomas Goddard bought the manor of Swindon in 1560. He 
built the farm-house at Westlecote, Swindon, on a pleasant spot overlooking the 
Elcombe valley. The date, 1589, and the initials, T. G. for Thomas Goddard, 
still remain on a stone in the building. The walls are very thick; and the 
porch and nail-studded door give the structure an air of antiquity. When the 
Spanish Armada threatened England, the gentlemen of Wiltshire subscribed 
for the defence of the country, and Thomas Goddard, Esq., gave L25 in 1588." 
On a tablet in Aldbourne Church it is recorded that, "A. D. 1597, Thomas God- 
dard, Esq., of Upham, gave forty shillings for ever to the poor of the parish of 
Aldbourne. . . . This forty shillings was a rent-charge on the estate at Upham, 
and is still paid by the present occupier, Mr. F. Frampton, and deducted from 
the rent of the present owner (H. Stone, Esq.). ... A copy of the will of Thomas 
Goddard, Esq., is preserved in the church chest. The will was proved on the 
2nd June, 1597. He desires his body to be buried in the church at Aldbourne. 
'I doe give and bequeathe unto the poore people, now within the parish of 
Aldbourne aforesaid, forty shillings a-year for ever' — to be paid half-yearly, the 
first instalment on St. Michael's day. 'Item, I doe also give and bequeath unto 
the poor people of the parish of Swindon five pounds.' There are bequests 
also to Winborow, Liddenton, Ramsbury, Ogbourne, and Marlborough, and to 
his men and maid-servants. His lands and tenements he chiefly leaves to 
'Richard Goddard, my son.' " 

Thomas Goddard was commemorated by the monument in Aldbourne Church. 
"This large monument is placed on the right of the chancel in what was once 
the Goddard chapel. It is in the Italian style, and reaches to a great height. 
There are two large figures — an esquire and his wife — and four smaller, repre- 
senting three sons and one daughter. It is considered to be in memory of 
Thomas Goddard, Esq., of Upham, and his wife, Anna sister of Sir George 
Gifford. ... At the top of the monument the arms of Goddard, gilt and properly 
coloured, remain still; but lower down, where there were apparently several 
other shields, the charge is entirely gone, as is also the inscription. On a 
bracket over the monument hangs an esquire's helmet in very good condition; 
a second bracket is empty at present; but Mr. Witt (church-warden) very well 
remembers in his youth a breastplate and a pair of gauntletts suspended there. 
At the late restoration of the church Mr. Witt caused every search to be made 
for these relics, but in vain. Before the restoration this part of the church, 
forming the Goddard chapel, was railed off by an ancient wooden carved screen." 
Thomas Goddard married second, Jane, daughter of John Ernie, of Cannings. 
Wiltz; and Ernie, Sussex; from whom descended the Ck)ddards of Hartham. 

7 (VII.) RICHARD GODDARD of Upham and Swindon, son of Thomas and 
Anna (Gifford) Goddard (G), m. Elizabeth, dau. of Thomas Walrond,. Esq., of 



GODDARD. 157 

Aldbourne. "His residence appears to have been in Upham, where he built a 
large mansion; probably on and with the ruins of a still larger house, the 
hunting lodge of John of Gaunt. This mansion originally contained a noble 
hall extending the whole length of the building, it is now subdivided into a 
dining-room, pantry, and entrance-hall, each large and lofty; the ceiling is 
fourteen feet high. The present drawing-room occupies the place of the dais, or 
lord's seat, and is still three steps higher than the rest. In the present dining- 
room, over the mantlepiece, is the coat-of-arms of the royal duke of Lancaster, 
now much defaced; but the oak leaves and coronet remain, with the motto, 
'Dieu et mon droit.' This shield was no doubt originally placed in the hunting- 
lodge. A fine old staircase of black oak leads to the upper apartments. Over 
the hall is the banqueting-chamber, thirty feet long; the mantlepiece is a work 
of the time of James. Standing as the house does, on the highest ground 
between London and Bristol, the view from the upper story is most extensive, 
penetrating far into Berkshire and Hampshire. Mr. F. Frampton has a collec- 
tion of coins found upon the estate; among them is a British gold coin of the 
antepegraphic period, exhibiting the lowest form of debased stater, in a rude 
horse and detached wheel; it is slightly convex on one side, and concave on the 
other, and the metal shows the grain of the wooden mould. Over the porch at 
some height hangs a small bell, which is curious as having been cast in Ald- 
bourne bell-foundry. The Aldbourne chime is still noted. The initials R. G. and 
E. G. with the date 1599 are carved on the porch, for Richard Goddard and his 
wife Elizabeth: also the initials T. G. and A. G., for Thomas and Anna Richard's 
father and mother. 

''Richard Goddard presented the tenor bell to Aldbourne Church. It still 
hangs in the tower, and has a most beautiful tone; it weighs 19 cwt. 28 lbs. 
There is the following inscription round the rim of the shoulder, which when 
read aloud sounds like a chime — 

"Intonant de cells vox compane Michaelis. Deus propicius esto alabus 
Ricardi Godard quondam de Uppam Elizabeth et Elizabeth uxorum ejus ac 
aiabus oim liberorum et parentum suorum qui hanc campana fieri facerunt 
anno dni MCCCCCXVI." 

In restoring Aldbourne Church, a brass was found in that portion which was 
anciently the Goddard Chapel, and under which appear to have been the family 
vaults. The brass is now placed in the aisle adjoining, and represents the figure 
of an esquire and his wife. The inscription reads: — 

"Hie jacet Ritus Goddard quodam de Uppham et 

Elizabeth uxor ejs qi q'dm 

Ricus obitt die An dni MoCCCCo et 

p'dicta Elizabeth Obit. 

xiiijo die Julii Anno dni Millio CCCCLXXXJo quor 

aiabus ppicietur Ds Amen." 
"A 'C appears to have been omitted when engraving this plate. It was 
probably laid down by Richard at the time of his first wife's death, when he did not 
contemplate a second marriage. Blank spaces were left for the date of his own

death, and these were never filled in. Both wives were named Elizabeth. The 
first was a daughter of Thomas Walrond, Esq., of Aldbourne, who brought him 
four children, the eldest of whom, Thomas, succeeded to the Swindon estate, 
and was probably the first who resided at Swindon.

beth (Waldron) Goddard (7), m. "Priscilla, daughter of John D'Oyley by Ursula, 
daughter of Sir Ed. Cope." ... He "was once very wealthy, but afterwards much 
reduced by oppression during the civil war. He belonged on the Parliament 
side, his house was beset and demolished by a company of cavaliers, who also 
plundered his substance. He escaped through the midst of them in disguise, 
but died soon after."* 13 chil.

bap. "Feb. 28, 1627"; d. "Oct. 6, 1691"; m. ELIZABETH MILES, d. Feb., 1697; 
dau. of William Miles of London. He met with great losses at sea, lived too 
expensively, and became greatly reduced in his property. His mother-in-law, 
Mrs. Foot, a widow, having a brother living in New England, lent him LlOO 
sterling, taking a mortgage on his house and land for security; and he died 
without paying any part of the debt. Mrs. Foot gave the claim to William 
Goddard, and he came over to secure it. Finding no property but the mort- 
gaged estate, in view of his straitened condition he decided to remain in 
America and sent for his family. This was in 1665, the year of the great plague; 
and as it was contrary to law for any emigrant to carry more than five pounds 
in specie from the kingdom, he stored his merchandise and furniture in London. 
The family settled in Watertown, Ms., and the great fire of 1666 destroyed all 
this property reducing him to poverty. His wife's mother's third husband, 
dying, left them a legacy of 400 pounds sterling. They had six children born 
in London, three of whom died young; they had also six children born in 
America, three of whom died young. A curious circumstance of the six surviv- 
ing sons is that the three born in England had light complexion and red hair, 
while the three born in Watertown had dark complexion and black hair, and 
were distinguished as "The Indian Boys." The six survivors were,

Simeon was many times elected Town Clerk, and many times Representative of 
Watertown. Edward Goddard was a schoolmaster in Watertown from "Apr. 
12, 1697" to about 1707, when he moved to Boston and became a teacher there. 
On "Mar. 25, 1714" he went to Framingham where he taught a grammar school 
several years with a salary of forty pounds. He afterwards held various public 
offices: was selectman 10 years, town clerk 18 years, treasurer 2 years, repre- 
sentative 9 years, and many years a justice of the peace in Framingham. He 
was captain of a company of horse, and for three years was a member of the 
Council. An obituary notice of him says: "He was a person of very good natural 
powers, inquisitive and curious genius, industrious spirit and considerable im- 
provement in both divine and political knowledge, esteemed for sobriety, in- 
tegrity, judiciousness and piety from his youth, . . . being of so good a character 
and a very accurate writer and draughter in almost all sorts of instruments, 
he was in his younger time encouraged to keep a school for writing and arith- 
metic in Boston, where he behaved himself to great acceptance. . . . Being a 
person of such parts, improvements, and principles, and of undaunted courage, 
. . . He was one of the greatest and most steady patriots both of civil and reli- 
gious liberties in their largest extent, that ever appeared in the General Assem- 
bly in his day." He died of an epidemic fever that had caused the death of 
bis son David, Jan. 19, in Leicester; his son Benjamin, Jan. 28, in Shrewsbury; 
and his wife Susanna, Feb. 4, in Framingham; all within three weeks. 9 chil.

to the village of South Reading, where he died. He was a man of great energy 
and public spirit, held many town offices, and strove for the growth and pros- 
perity of Reading more than sixty years. He was always ready to respond to 
the calls of the sick and needy, and assist in the support of the church, assisting 
in the building of two church edifices in Reading. He was long a deacon of the 
Universalist church, and lived and died respected by the whole community. To 
his descendants who remember his kindly face and his words of wisdom, his 
memory is precious. 8 chil. b. in Reading.

in Groton, Ms., Sep. 25, 1753. In "The Commander-in-Chief's Guard" it is said 
of James Gordon that: he "Enlisted, Bedford, N. H., July 1, 1782, for three years, 
a private. Captain Ebenezer Fr>''s Company, First New Hampshire Regiment, 
commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Dearborn; transferred, Newburg, N. Y., 
June 16, 1783, to the Commander-in-Chief's Guard, commanded by Lieutenant- 
Commander William Colfax; transferred Nov. 9, 1783, to Colonel Henry Jack- 
son's Regiment. Continental Infantry; discharged, West Point, N. Y., June 30, 
1784." In "Valley Forge" pp. 29, 30, it is said: "The Commander-in-Chief's 
Guard was formed, originally, under an order of Washington dated at Cam- 
bridge, March 11, 1776. For this purpose four men carefully selected from each 
regiment were detailed to this duty. Caleb Gibbs of Massachusetts became 
Captain and George Lewis, of Virginia, a nephew of General Washington, was 
appointed Lieutenant. The Corps numbered sixty men exclusive of officers. . . . 
The Guard as reorganized May 1, 1777 at Morristow^n, numbered fifty-six men 
exclusive of officers. . . . The body was equipped as infantry, in addition to which

a small force of horse was maintained, of which George Lewis was Captain." 
James Gordon after the war lived in R., and died near Felchville, in Cavendish. 

Olive Harris was of medium stature and had the athletic endowment of the 
family, which, with her, appeared in running. She could run like Atalanta. 
Her husband was tall and so good a runner that he was seldom beaten. A man 
of whom he had bought a bushel of beans was boasting of his ability to run, 
when Gordon proposed a short race with him, Gordon carrying the beans on his 
back, on condition that if he should win Gordon should not pay for the beans. The 
challenge was accepted, the race was run, and Gordon won the beans; but his 
fleet-footed wife could and often did outstrip him in a race. The "Spotted Fever" 
of which her husband died was very prevalent in 1813, and her eldest son, dying 
soon after his father of the same disease, left her with three small children, 
and little means for their support; but she reared them all to maturity.

Jan. 18, 1800; d. Oct. 13, 1864 in Avon; son of James and Mary (Van De Mark) 
Graham of Avon. Mary Van De Mark was born in Holland. James Graham was 
a native of Scotland, and, wishing to emigrate to America, in accordance with a 
custom of the time, sold himself into service at Amsterdam to a physician of 
N. Y. City, to pay the necessary passage money thither. After his service he 
married a Dutch wife and settled near Tioga Point, on the Chemung Branch of 
the Susquehanna River, in Pa. He removed first to Bradford, Ca.. and thence, in 
1816, to Detroit, Mich. The first settlement in Oakland Co., Mich, was begun 
Mar. 17, 1817 by this James Graham and two of his elder sons, Alexander 



GRAHA.M. 163 

Christopher Hartsough and John Henry, within the township of Avon, and on 
the site of the Village of Rochester, where was born the first white child of the 
county, a grandson of James Graham, in 1818. His sons Benjamin and William 
bought the south-west quarter of section 28, to which their father moved, and 
there he spent the rest of his life, dispensing an unbounded hospitality with 
proverbial kindness. He was greatly esteemed by his neighbors, and especially 
by the resident Indians, who would do anything for him. He was a soldier of 
the Revolution from April 15, 1777 to April 15, 1778, and was engaged in the 
battle of Wyoming. He died, 1849, in his 99th year, and was buried in a family 
cemetery on the farm, where lie his descendants, the Grahams and Postals, of 
three generations. 

Mary Postal Graham could demonstrate her descent from her herculean an- 
cestor, Jacob Fulham, killed in Lovewell's Fight. She could lift a barrel of salt, 
and would put barrels of flour into a wagon with ease. She had a womanly 
fondness for fine clothes, and, on occasion, would appear in silks and laces; but 
she was without apparent vanity, and her husband found her an efficient help 
in time of need. 5 chil. b. in Avon, Mich.

his large barn, without assistance, he raised to his shoulder, carried, and put 
in place half of the purlin posts, while three workmen, together, moved and 
put in position the other half. He directed four men to carry the stringers 
for the granary, which they were unable to do, so he set them at something 
else, and carried them himself, alone. While three men were sitting on a rail 
in front of the cylinder of a threshing separator, he grasped with his hands, 
palms upwards, one front wheel, thus weighing 1,300 pounds, by two horizontal 
spokes eighteen inches above the barn floor, and raised it six inches. From 
both parents he inherited great force of character and endurance with invincible 
courage and an indomitable will; but he is always 
just and kind. The Fulham eye at times blazes 
with anger or moistens in sympathy, but his tongue 
is always under control. He purchased part of the 
homestead on which he was born, bought adjoin- 
ing lands sufficient to make a farm of 220 acres, 
and entered on his life work, purposing to die 
where he had always lived and lie with his kindred 
in the family cemetery on the old farm. 

Besides his farm work, for more than thirty 
years, he has dealt extensively in horses, cattle, 
and sheep. He has 32 horses, and usually keeps 
from 30 to 40 Durham cattle, as to which he is 
regarded an expert, being often selected as Judge 
of them in County, District, and State Fairs. In 
the management of his farm he uses many labor- 
saving machines and the most modern improve- William Graham, 35. 
ments. A gasoline engine saws about 300 cords of wood each year; cuts, feeds, 
and, when the wind-mill does not serve, pumps water for the stock. He realizes 
that, to insure good service, the master must know how to do himself; he has 
mastered every kind of work connected with his business, and has instructed 
his sons so that, during an absence of a week or a month, business will not 
suffer for want of his attention. He has a "sugar-bush" of 350 maple trees, in 
which, during the season, the youngsters are accustomed to "sugar off," an in- 
cident of outdoor life which he encourages, attributing his own robust health 
to such a life. Like all his known ancestors, he is a Democrat, and, having the 
courage of his convictions, he often writes for the press, and has made political 
speeches, one of which was printed in journals of seven states. He delights in 
a running debate, and he frequently reads papers before Short-horn Breeding 
Associations and at Farmers' Institutes. His father Benjamin Graham had a 
paralytic shock that disabled him for business when William was 13 years old; 
and, being an only son, he was obliged to attend to the farm work, and missed 
opportunity for education that, otherwise, he might have enjoyed. But he in- 
herited from his father a love of books, which has led to storing his mind with 
useful and elevating knowledge, far more valuable than mere learning. 




166 GRAHA:^!. 

IDA ESTELLE FULHAM (429) GRAHAM, wife of William Graham, and dau. 
of Willard and Mary Bacon (Taylor) Fulham (420) of Holly, Mich., b. Nov. 13, 
1856; is of the same line of descent as her husband from Hon. Francis Fulham 
(1), the immigrant from Fulham, London, Eng., to Elisha Fulham, Jr. (90), the 
great-grandfather of both; and she has characteristics that have distinguished 
many members of the family in America. Although but 60 and % inches tall 
and weighing one hundred pounds, at the age of fourteen, she was so strong 
that she carried bags containing two bushels of wheat, grasping them with 
her hands by the tops after they had been tied, lifting, and bearing them without 
touching them elsewhere; and she is stronger than any other woman of her 
family. Since her marriage an accident to her hip caused a lameness from 
which she has not fully recovered, but she still walks miles without tiring; and 
her husband says that he knows no woman that is able to do so much work 
without fatigue. Her hand, shown in a plate of the Introduction, has the con- 
tinuous line extending quite across the palm, under the knuckle, rarely found 
out of the family. The hands of her husband have the same line, caused by the 
shape of the hand, producing a nearly right angle at the little finger joint, in the 
clenched fist. It is to be regarded as an inheritance from an ancestor as 
remote, at least, as Jacob Fulham — 6. 

At the age of twenty-one she began teaching, and for twenty-three years she 
continued in the schools and in the same building of Holly, devoting all her 
energies and an undivided interest to her work there. At the end of two years 
she was promoted to Grammar Department A, where she remained twelve years. 
At one time a rebellion broke out in school, during which the pupils in Miss 
Fulham's room were the only ones kept in subjection. Her power of discipline 
apparently saved the school, in appreciation of which the School Board raised 
her salary. In 1892 she was appointed Assistant, and, two years later, Principal 
of the High School, each promotion being accompanied by an increase of salary, 
to which was added another increase before she left the school. Besides her 
school work, she gave private lessons, sometimes fifteen in a week, to pupils 
that were trying to keep up their class work while earning money for the ex- 
pense of their later attendance at school. And during eighteen years she taught 
a class of boys in the Presbyterian Sunday School of Holly. 

Her principal school instruction was in Botany, History, and German. She 
was graduated from Holly High School in 1878, and had no other schooling; but 
since then she has studied Greek with a noted linguist, Latin with a Professor 
of that language, and German with a native German teacher. The school had 
many leading magazines, gifts from its friends, containing valuable information, 
but of little use without classification; and of these, during her last year in 
school. Miss Fulham made a catalogue containing over 30,000 references. To 
increase her acquirements and secure continuous intellectual grow1:h, each year, 
while engaged in teaching, she took up some new study or employment, such as 
Greek, Spanish, or association with Shakespeare Clubs, Iliad Clubs, and the 
Chatauqua and the Bay View Courses. The Superintendent under whom she 
taught 12 years gave her a written recommendation in which, among other 
qualities, he specifies force of character, discipline, excellent tact, daily prepara- 



GRAHA^I. 167 

tion, and voluntary promotions by the Board of Education, with increase of salary. 

In the spring of 1897 the "Detroit Daily Journal" offered two free trips to 
Yellowstone Park for teachers, one for the city, and the other for the rest of the 
State of Michigan, to be awarded to the teacher receiving the largest number of 
votes, in the respective classes. Without her knowledge, the people of Holly, 
a place of some 1,200 inhabitants, undertook to secure the second prize for Miss 
Fulham, of which she first learned some weeks after; numerous favorite teachers 
in many large towns of Michigan, by themselves or their friends, strove also for 
it, and, at times, led Miss Fulham, but she was held in so great esteem by the 
community in which she lived that, in the end, she led her competitors by more 
than 6,000 votes, to the great joy of Holly, where the victory was celebrated with 
eclat equal to that of Independence Day. 

Miss Fulham was led to resign her place in school by the age and failing sight 
of her mother, to whom, in turn, she devoted herself as long as her mother 
lived; and, when aware of a projected genealogy of the family, she entered with 
her accustomed energy and zeal into the collection of materials; and she has 
been of greater assistance to the Author than any other member of the family. 
Her acquaintance with William Graham began in the course of this work, and 
has resulted in the association that promises happiness for her at the head of 
his family far beyond that of her school life. May it be as enduring. 6 chil.

eleven and nine years, respectively, so faithfully and well as to win their 
undying affection and gratitude. She is generally known as Anna, but 
the family call her "Jimmie" in a way to show how dear she has made 
herself to them. She is active and capable; knows how to do, and does 
it. 2 chil.

The HARRIS family is said to be of Welch origin, the name meaning Harry's 
son. Sir John Harries of Terreglee County, Wales, was made a Lord of Parlia- 
ment by King James IV. soon after his accession; and Sir John sat in Parlia- 
ment from "Feb. 3, 1490," to "Feb. 6, 1492." 

1 ROBERT HARRIS of Brookline, Ms., born in England about 1615; died 
about 1701; is said to have come from Gloucestershire, Eng., to Massachusetts. 
The first known record of him relates to his marriage. He became a member 
of the First Church of Roxbury, "Aug. 8, 1647." He was admitted freeman "May 
22, 1650;" and he was Constable in 1676. About 1665 he began to buy land in 
the southerly part of Brookline; he bought, in all, no less than ten lots, and 
erected a "garrison house" thereon, in which he spent the rest of his life. This 
land remained in the family nearly 175 years. He married in Roxbury "Jan. 
24, 1642-3," ELIZABETH BOUGHEY, born in England and probably in London. 
Letters still preserved show that she had a brother. Bold Boughey, Keeper of 
Fleet Prison, and a sister, Katherine Thorp, both of London; and two other 
brothers and four other sisters, all in comfortable circumstances. She joined 
the church of which her husband was a member, "April 5, 1663." 5 chil.

Harris (1), m. MARY SANGER, b. "Sep. 26, 1650," dau. of Richard, Jr. and Mary 
(Reynolds) Sanger of Watertown, Ms. John and Mary Harris "Owned ye 
covenant" in the Roxbury Church "Feb. 20, 1673," and were received into church 
fellowship in 1684. He went on the expedition of Sir William Phipps to Quebec 
in 1690, and never came back. It was known that he with two companions 
from Brookline started to return; that they were without food for a considera- 
ble part of the way, excepting such small animals as they were able to kill; 
and that only one of the three reached home, so shattered in mind by his hard- 
ships that he could give no intelligible account of the fate of the other two. He 
left two sons and five daughters. Robert Harris, his father, provided for these 
seven children by giving to the eldest son 27 acres on Muddy River, with a pro- 
\'ision that he, Robert, Jr., pay to his brother John seven pounds, and four 
pounds to each of his five sisters. 

8 TIMOTHY HARRIS (4) of Brookline, Ms., son of Robert and Elizabeth 
(Boughey) Harris (1), b. "July 9, 1650;" d. "Sep. 21, 1730;" m. "Apr. 2, 1697," 
ABIGAIL MOREY, b. "Mar. 30, 1681;" d. Sep. 9, 1767; dau. of Thomas and 
Susanna Morey of Roxbury. When a bachelor of 32, Thomas went to the house 
of his neighbor Morey, and, no one answering to his rapping, walked in. The 
noise awakened a girl-baby lying in the cradle, who began to cry, and, there 
being no other nurse present, Timothy exerted himself to quiet the child by 
rocking the cradle. The mother heard the uproar and came in, exclaiming, 
"Good heart! old bachelor! I have some hope of you yet!" "Aye, good wife, 
and with reason! for I am determined to claim this damsel for my wife the 
instant she is old enough," said Timothy. After fifteen years waiting, he did 
claim and marry Abigail three days after her sixteenth birthday. By deed 
dated "Sep. 12, 1693" Robert Harris gave to his son Timothy the homestead of 
three acres and 41i/4 acres besides, subject to the payment to his sister Elizabeth 
Whitney of ten pounds in money or lands, within two years after the father's 
death, and to his sister Priscilla Harris twenty pounds in money or lands, one- 
half within one year, and the rest within three years after the father's death. 
Timothy lived on this homestead. He was noted for his strength and activity; 
was of a mirthful disposition; and in youth was fond of practical jokes. It is 
related that while playing tricks on Indians living in a wigwam near by, on two 
occasions, he might have been killed by them but for his adroitness and speed. 
By deed dated "Oct. 31, 1729" he conveyed to his eldest son Timothy, Jr., all his 
property, with a condition for the maintenance of the father and mother, and 
the payment to the other sons, John and Joseph, of 300 pounds each. Timothy 
had also a daughter Abigail. She married Samuel Newell of Dudley, who 
became one of the wealthiest farmers of his time.

of "Turkey Hill," Fitchburg, holding lot 71, which he parted with; and he 
acquired lot 31, first set to his brother Timothy. He was licensed a retail dealer 
from 1740 to 1749. He was Rep. from Wat. to the Great and General Court, 
for the years 1735, '36, '37. He was a Selectman 11 years between 1733 and 
1747; and for many years he was a Justice of the Peace in Watertown. He gave 
to the parish in 1754 the lot on which the church was built and stood from 1755 
to 1836, now part of the cemetery at the corner of Mt. Auburn and Common 
Streets. He is buried near the north corner of an old cemetery in W., where 
headstones inscribed for him and children Priscilla and Fulham, were standing 
in 1896. The date of Hannah Fulham Harris's death has not been ascertained; 
she and her eldest son Thomas were admrs. of her husband's estate, distributed 
in nine parts July 10, 1778, Thomas receiving two parts; and this probably oc-

Fulham (11). He probably learned his trade of his father, and went to F. early, 
when only 15 houses had been erected in town, and while it was infested by bears 
and other wild animals. These conditions rendered the place so unattractive 
that he soon returned to D. ; but not long after, he finally settled in F. In a con- 



178 HARRIS. 

veyance of his share of his grandfather's estate, Apr. 13, 1773, he is described 
as a clothier of Fitchburg. Land in F. was conveyed to Samuel by his father 
Thomas, eldest son of Nathaniel Harris (22) one of the original proprietors and 
the owner of lot 71. He was follow^ed to F. by his brothers, afterwards by his 
father and mother, and presumably by the rest of the family. In 1789 Samuel 
is described as a Yeoman; and in that year his cousin Benjamin Harris, Jr., a 
miller of Providence, for SO lbs., conveyed to him 115 acres in F. With his 
brother Daniel and other F. men, he went to Boston to take part in the battle of 
Bunker Hill, in which one of the party was killed. He served during the siege 
of Boston, and after the British had evacuated the city, he returned to F. He 
was in the Revolutionary Army under Gen. Gates, and was in the battle of 
Saratoga and at the surrender of Gen. Burgoyne in 1777. His children remem- 
bered that his army comrades used to visit him; and one from Groton who was 
deaf from wounds received in his head at Saratoga, for many years, came to 
spend the anniversary of that battle wath him, — probably John Dwight — 1. In 
his will he names as Executor his son Thomas to whom, on May 29, 1820, he 
had conveyed one undivided half of about 175 acres in three lots of F.; and 
Thomas was residuary legatee of the estate remaining after satisfying the 
legacies to descendants as follows: Samuel of Petersham, $1; Samuel Ward, 
$100; Milton, 1 pr. 2 year-old steers and $100; Lucy Whittemore, V2 the house-

while walking in Kilby Square one night about 1856, he heard the noise of a 
scuffle, and found his father had captured two burglars, the Burrill Brothers, 
both large strong men, and was struggling with them on the ground, holding 
one with each hand, while both were attacking him and trying to get away. 
His father asked Samuel if he thought he could manage one of the burglars, 
which he undertook to do: and all started for the station; but his father did 
not release his hold on either until they were locked up. Samuel also said 
that at ninety years, his father could still handle the strongest two of his 
sons at the same time. 5 chil. b. 1, 2. in B.; 3, in Hartland, Vt.; 4, 5, in

tallest could walk under, erect. When a young man, while the snow was deep, 
he ran down on snow-shoes, captured, and subdued two deer on the mountain in 
one winter. He threw himself upon the exhausted animals, bound with cords, 
tied on a sapling cut and trimmed for the purpose, dragged to the road, and, 
with one end of a long rope attached to his body, and the other fastened to the 
deer's head, drove them home and into the stable, where he kept both until 
spring. He became so attached to them that, when they could provide for 
themselves, he turned them loose again. He was a great story teller, and, 
while some of his tales, like Walter Scott's novels, probably were founded on 
fact, most of them, apparently were romances manufactured on the spot. 



186 HARRIS. 

While altogether improbable, these stories always seemed possible, and were 
told with such earnestness, consistency, and apparent candor, that the listener 
instinctively accepted them as true; and as, like Shakespeare, he never re- 
peated, detection was impossible. His nephew Sewall Fulham, Jr. (277), once 
found him surrounded by an admiring crowd, while attending court as a witness 
at Woodstock, where he was unknown; and, on approaching to hearing distance, 
discovered, as expected, that "Uncle Cleff" was relating some wonderful events 
within his personal knowledge, none of which his nephew had ever heard 
before, but which his audience seemed to accept as historic. The author, when 
a boy, after the funeral of his grandfather, slept with Uncle Cleff, and went to 
sleep listening to tales of wonderful adventures of himself and others. His 
gift as a romancer might have proved profitable had he been able to wield a 
pen as well as he did his tongue, but his reputation for truth did not suffer 
by reason of his exuberant fancy. 4 chil. b. in Shrewsbury, Vt.

Georgia, 18th ult. Suddenly, Capt. Samuel Hincks, Senior Master of Sch. 
Norman of Bangor, a man of sterling integrity and worth, he died as he had 
lived, beloved and respected by a large circle of relatives and friends." Some 30 
years later his remains were disinterred and buried in North Bucksport by his

Gray was Master, on the way from Bangor to Santa Cruz, with a load of 
lumber. The schooner was wrecked in a storm, and the men suffered 
greatly from the seas that swept over them, and the want of food and 
fresh water. They contrived to cut a hole in the deck, and find some raw 
turnips; they killed a shark, drank its blood, and ate some of its flesh, and, 
when almost despairing of relief, the survivors were taken off by the 
bark Ironside, Capt. George Toby, on the way from New York to Antwerp, 
where they were landed. Warren Hincks perished in the storm.

William Pierce and Mary Elizabeth (Shepheard) Davis of Albany, N. Y. In his 
school days he showed a strong predilection for 

railroad and electrical science, which became his 
life business. He was a pioneer in the earliest de- 
velopment of the telephone, and the first to design 
and work out the Central Office System, and to 
;build a Central ^OflBce Telephone line, early in the 
summer of 18,^7. He introduced, commercially, 
the arc lamp on low tension incandescent circuits 
in this country, out of which he made a large sum 
of money. In 1877 he was commissioned by 
George Walker, Vice-President of the Gold Stock 
Telegraph Co., and later United States Consul 
General to France, to establish the Telephone Cen- 
tral Oflice business in Chicago, 111.; and in less 
than a year after he went there, 1878, he invented 
the Multiple Telephone Switchboard, which has 
become the vitally important element in the Frank E. Kinsman. — 18. 
Telephone Central Office System. Since his return to New York, 1881, he has 
engaged in nearly all phases of electrical and railroad business. He was the 
first Supt. of Repairs and Attachments, of the Metropolitan — now the New York — 
Telephone Company, in the years 1879, 1880. He resigned that office to form the 
firm of Kinsman & Toby, afterwards incorporated as The Electric Construction 
and Supply Company of N. Y. City, of which he was Pres. until 1890; during

which time the Low Tension Circuit Arc Lamp, and many other electrical im- 
provements were introduced under his management. 

In the years following he acted as consulting engineer for several large 
electrical and business establishments. In 1907 he was Pres. of the Kinsman 
Block System Company of the City of N. Y., which owns his patents for auto- 
matically controlling the motive power and air brakes of railroad trains; and 
he has lately put them in operation in the express service of the N. Y. City 
Subway, and on the Boston Elevated Railroad. He is Treas. of the Kinsman 
Electric & Railway Supply Company of N. Y. City, and a Director of the Electric 
Construction and Supply Company. He has received some fifty patents for his 
inventions. He is a full member of the American Society of Electrical En- 
gineers, and of The American Signal Association; and a member of The Mer- 
chants' Association of the City of New York, in which he has served on various 
important committees. He is a Mason, a member of the Knights Templars, 
and a Noble of Mecca Temple of the Mystic Shrine. 4 chil.

1 (I.) JOHN LIVERMORE, in 1634, at the age of 28, embarked in the Francis, 
John Cutting, Master, at Ipswich, Eng., for Mass. Bay. There is a tradition 
that he came without his wife, and it is believed that she joined him a few 
years after with their only child. He was admitted freeman with other pas- 
sengers on the Francis, "May 6, 1635," and he, of course, was a member of the 
Congregational Church, since no others were permitted to vote in the colony. 
His name is in an undated list of early proprietors, but he is not named as 
one of those "then inhabiting" Watertown, in February, 1636-7; and it is sup- 
posed that he went to Ct. in 1635 or 1636 with the emigrants from Wat. that 
began the settlement of Pyquag, first called Watertown, and afterwards named 
Wethersfield by the Court; and that his wife Grace was with him there when 
their second child was born. The colony of New Haven was founded in 1638; 
John Livermore, then of New Haven, signed the fundamental agreement of 
the N. H. Colony; and his signature is at Vol. 1, p. 1, of N. H. Col. Rec. He 
became a freeman of the colony "Oct. 29, 1640," and took the oath of allegiance 
"July 1, 1644." On "June 11, 1645," it was "proposed that another ordinary 



LIVERMORE. 203 

might be set up towards the waterside," and it was left with "John Livermore 
to consider it." — N. H. Col. Rec. 1, p. 103. His home in New Haven was the 
second from the harbor on the west side of Fleet Street. On "May 17, 1647," 
Joseph Nash was chosen Corporal, "in room of John Livermore, who expects to 
go to England," and his name is not in the records again until January, 1648-9. 

In the first assessment of John Livermore at New Haven he was rated at 
four persons, not including servants. This indicates that he then had a wife 
and two children. In the first "seating the meeting-house," 1642, seats were 
assigned to John Livermore, and "sister Livermore." Four children were 
born to them and christened in N. H. Under date May 7, 1650, "John Liver- 
more hath sould and passeth to Theophilus Higginson, his house-lot V2 acre 
and 10 perches; 8 acres i/4, 15 rods, on this side the West River, next the land 
of Richard Beach; GVo acres 25 rods, on the other side the West River, next 
Milford highway, by the meadow side; 28 acres of the 2d division, betwixt the 
lands of Edward Banister and Richard Osborne; 5 acres of meadow in the West 
Meadow, next meadow of Henry Gibbons; 3 acres of meadow in Solitary Cove, 
with the work-house, with the land belonging to them, bounded with stump of 
a tree next the sea, running along the creek to the end of the house — being in 
breadth so wide as the house is." — Col. Rec. II., p. 18. After this conveyance 
his name does not appear in the records of New Haven Colony. 

In 1653 John Livermore's name appears as a juror from Watertown, showing 
that he had sometime before become a resident there; and he continued to live 
in W. until his death. John Livermore in the "Fourth Great Dividend" of 
land in W. was the grantee of 25 acres. And he had a homestall of 2 acres, 
"bounded with the Great Pond." He was a Selectman of W. in the years 
1666, '68, '69, and held other positions of trust in town. The traditional "large 
sum in the English fund," belonging to the family, was a supposed inheritance 
through John Livermore; but it existed only in the imagination of the heirs. 
If John was, as is supposed, the son of Peter Livermore, of Little Thurloe, in 
the Co. of Suffolk, Eng., he was one of seven children, and the third son; he 
was by trade a potter, and there is no reason to suppose that his father or 
any ancestor was rich. This, like other ancient legends of the kind, probably 
was invented by those sharpers that, in past generations, have cheated their 
credulous dupes out of more money for fees and expenses in pretended under- 
takings to recover "funds" than the amount of all similar funds that ever 
existed in England, as has been pointed out repeatedly by United States 
Ministers to Great Britain and others familiar with the facts. 

John Livermore died "April 14, 1684" aet. 78. His w^ll dated "Jan. 10, 1682- 
3," proved "June 16, 1684," names his wife GRACE, and the following: "eldest 
son John; the three youngest chil. of John Coolidge, by his daughter d.; Daniel, 
Elizabeth, Sarah, Martha. Samuel, Nathaniel. Hannah (Anna), and Grace; 
chil. of Samuel; son-in-la-w James TowTisend, and his son James; — only one 
dr. then living." His inventory mentions 1st, the "Cowpen Farm," 40 acres 
upland, and 12 acres meadow, formerly of Henry Curtis, which he (J. L.) pur- 
chased of the town, Nov. 7, 1664, for his son John, confirmed to him in the

will; "2d, 50 acres dividend land, bought of Wm. Paine, and given to son 
Nathaniel; 3d, 2 acres patch meadow; 4th, 4 acres Pigsgusset meadow; 5th, 
6 acres salt marsh; 6th, 1 acre at Chester Brook; 7th, 5 acres upland on the 
Rocks; a parcel of Bees, L2." He had previously, Mar. 10, 1681, conveyed by 
deed to his son Samuel, his homestead, 34 acres, with a dwelling-house, &c.; 
also, 20 acres woodland; "as a recompense of that dutiful obedience, that the 
said Samuel hath yielded to, and thereby hath been (through God's blessing), 
a comfort and support to the said John and family." 

The will of Grace, widow of John Livermore, dated "Dec. 19, 1690," names 
her "son and dr., Abraham and Martha Parker, of Chelmsford," where she 
died; also, "son John Coolidge; gr. son James Townsend," and her sons "John, 
Nathaniel, and Samuel." William Perry and his wife Anna, of Watertown, 1682, 
in a petition to the County Court, mention "our sister Livermore, midwife, and 
our sister Chinery." The import of these words is unknown. Of 11 children 
of John and Grace whose names are known, the dates and places of birth of 
only five are given; and the order of the rest is uncertain. 11 chil.

13 (ID Lieut. JOHN LIVERMORE (3) of Weston, Ms., d. Feb. 20, 1719; 
probably b. in Wethersfield, Ct., 1638. His homestall was the "Cowpen Farm" 
now in Weston near the Sudbury line, containing 40 acres; which with 20 
acres of Meadow near Nonesuch Meadow, was given him by his father. He 
was admitted freeman "April 18, 1690," and, as a prerequisite, of course, had 
become a member of the church; but about 1706 he joined the church in Sud- 
bury, which was much nearer, and on the organization of the church at "the 
Farms," Weston, he, with his son-in-law Francis Fulham, and three other 
residents of the Farms, withdrew from the Sudbury church and became mem- 
bers of that at the Farms. He was one of the Selectmen of Watertown in 
1692. John Livermore, Richard Child, and Josiah Jones of Wat.; and John 
Haywood of Concord bought "Feb. 19, 1678-9" of Nathaniel Treadway and wife 
30 acres on Stony Brook, and soon after began the erection of a mill thereon. 
"Jan. 5, 1679-80," at a town meeting in Wat., it was "Granted that the new corn 
mill, now set up and to be finished at Stony Brook, be freed from rates for 20 
years." "Mar. 3, 1683." John Haywood and his wife Anna, of Concord, con- 
veyed to John Livermore, for L60, "One fourth of Stony Brook Mill." By this

deed John Livermore became half owner of the mills, supposed to be the sa.ne 
afterwards known as "Bigelow's Mills." "Oct. 22, 1695" John Grout, Sen., of 
Sudbury, conveyed to his son-in-law John Livermore, of Watertown (Farms), 
a tract of land bounded n. by Sudbury Line; e. by Wat. Line; s. by Dedham 
Line; and w. by 200 acres granted by the General Court to William Jennison. 
"Nov. 21. 1712/' John Livermore conveyed this tract, in consideration of love 
and affection, to his four daughters and their husbands: Ephraim Rice and 
Hannah his wife; Francis Fulham and Sarah his wife; Isaac Gleason and

^i(jow. Emily S. M. Loring. Charles F. Lorixg. 

From childhood Emily Sophia has be€n a maker of rhymes, and she was 
called the Poet of Garden City. Very early she showed a genius for paint- 
ing and sculpture. While a little girl she wanted to make pictures, and, 
lacking colors, she taught herself how to prepare them. By pounding clover 
leaves in a rag, she produced a drop of green; red was obtained from flower 
petals of that hue; her mother gave her half a sheet of letter paper on which 
she drew the outlines of a rose, and colored it with so much skill that an 
appreciative cousin gave her a box of paints, with which unassisted and un- 
taught, she continued to indulge her propensity. After a time she had some 
lessons in the use of oil and crayons; and in later years she invented many 
ways of making pictures, the natural outgrowth from her first experiments. 

In the vicinity of Garden City are clays of many hues; and with these, by 
softening and mixing them with water, she painted many pictures on canvas. 
Her latest method consists in gathering many colored stones, soft enough to 
be reduced to powder by pounding, witL_ which, using a hen's feather as a 
brush, she has painted a large landscape, and smaller pictures of roses ex- 
hibited at the State Fair of Minnesota in 1900. Her sculpture has been widely 
known in the vicinity of her several places of abode. At a Dairymen's Con- 
vention in :Mankato, she exhibited seven pieces in butter; among them a dairy- 
maid with a pail in each hand, and a cat rubbing against her; a lamb; some 
chickens; a squirrel; wreaths of roses: and a book. No premiums for such 
productions were offered, but she was given ten dollars. She also moulds in 
clay. She made a life-sized baby playing with its toes; "The Old Woman that 
lived in a shoe" with eight children: and a lamb, life-sized, which she took 
with her in 1898 on a visit to her native town of Wilmington, Vt., where it 
was exhibited. She also makes books, plaques, and many other pieces. Her 



LORIXG.— MASOX. 209 

various works have attracted hundreds of people who have bestowed on them 
unbounded praise and wanted them faster than they cowld be made. Numerous 
newspaper notices of the work of her hand indicate a degree of excellence 
only found in the productions of one possessing a true artistic gift; and make 
her kindred regret that she lacked the training and opportunity in youth, that 
might have made her famous. 

When told that she should have been a painter or sculptor, she has answered: 
"No, home, husband, and children are better; I am content as it is." Her 
works are nearly all given to her friends; and, cherishing the larger hope and 
the greater faith of her fathers, she awaits with confidence the final consumma- 
tion, the union of all she has loved in the higher life. 

She is tall and slender. In her childhood home little was known of the 
moulding hand of fashion in shaping growing girls and mature women; nature 
prevailed and gave her a physical development that enabled her to outwalk 
any woman she ever knew. Two motherless little girls were adopted at dif- 
ferent times while she was without children, one of whom died; the other, Annie

he was appointed Lt. Col. of the 61st N. Y. Vol. Inf., and, within a month 
after, he was Colonel of the regiment. He was Brigadier General in 1864; 
and, at the age of twenty-five, he was commander of an army corps. He 
entered the regular army at the end of the war. and conducted several cam-

1 (IV.) ABIGAIL MOORE (14) PACKARD (1) MILLS of Sutton, Ms., m. 2d, 
Jan. 23, 1789, Rev. EDMUND MILLS, bap. in Kent, Ct, June 16, 1751; d. Nov. 
7, 1825; son of John and Jane (Lewis) Mills. He descended from Peter Van- 
derwater Meulen, an immigrant to Wintonbury, Ct., from Holland, who after- 
wards lived near the east part of Bloomfield, and whose son, Peter, b. in Wind- 
sor, Ct., 1666, had his name changed to Mills by act of the General Assembly. 
Peter Mills m. Joanna Porter, and had eight sons and three daughters. One of 
these sons, Rev. Samuel John Mills, b. 1722, had five sons and three daughters; 
among whom was Rev. Samuel John Mills, Jr., the founder of American Mis- 
sions; and Edmund, second husband of Abigail Moore. Rev. Edmund Mills 
was graduated from Yale, 1775, and ordained June 23, 1790, in Sutton, where 
he was pastor of the First Cong. Ch. until his death. He possessed a remark- 
able character both as a man and a minister. As a preacher he was distin- 
guished for originality of thought, conciseness in expression, and an earnest 
manner that made him very popular in all the neighboring towns. But he was 
modest and retiring, having a humble estimate of himself. Abigail Mills, m. 
3d, Sep. 18, 1831, Nathaniel Emmons, D. D., of Franklin, Ms., b. May 1, 1745; 
d. Sep. 23, 1840; for fifty-four years pastor of the Franklin Church; and for 
seventy years connected with it; an eminent divine, whose published sermons 
attracted great attention; and whose theological students, within forty years,

numbered more than one hundred. For thirty-five years he and Edmund Mills 
had been members of the Mendon Association and intimate friends. 

Abigail Moore Packard Mills Emmons was tall, erect, handsome, intellectual, 
and accomplished; and, though kind and affectionate, she habitually revealed 
a dignity of character and deportment that precluded presumptuous familiarity. 
She had over all around her, an influence for good, increased by years, that her 
associates gladly yielded to; and her life was a model of exemplary womanhood 
for the rising generation wherever she dwelt. In the memoirs of Dr. Emmons, 
by Edwin A. Park, it is said of her: "She was a lady of attractive and command- 
ing aspect, great amenity of manners, a sagacious mind, and a pure heart. 
She was admirably fitted to cheer the veteran student as he persevered in his 
inquiries after truth, and she was not to join him in the higher life until she 
had witnessed the success of his posthumous works, and rejoiced in the indica- 
tions that his successors would award to him the justice which was withheld 
from him by his contemporaries." After the death of Dr. Emmons, still in 
vigorous health and strength, she maintained her Franklin home until a broken 
hip, with inadequate treatment, rendered her permanently lame; and, after a 
gradation from crutches, through a crutch and cane, to a cane; finding house- 
keeping no longer practicable, she. decided to take up her abode among her 
children, all of whom were married and had homes of their own. She spent 
most of her remaining years with her daughter Abby Mills Whittelsey, first 
at Millbury, and then at Auburndale, where she died. 

She here revived the art of netting in which she had excelled in early life, 
making many sorts of articles, useful and ornamental, some of them in large 
numbers and of a variety of materials and designs, which she gave as tokens 
of love to her children and her grandchildren. She insisted on helping about 
the housework, doing what she could while sitting, until she was nearly 90, still 
wishing to be of service to those about her. She was a great reader, of the 
Bible, of Dr. Emmons's recently published sermons, of all good literature that 
came to hand, and of such miscellaneous matter as she thought valuable. With 
a well stored mind, she was a ready and interesting talker, thus giving pleasure 
and instruction to numerous acquaintances that often came long distances for 
the sake of listening to her. Her latest home was near the church,, to which 
she walked, aided by the arm of Mr. Whittelsey, still preserving her erect car- 
riage and dignified bearing, and to the seat of honor, to which he — using his own 
words — "was proud to conduct her," taking care that her silver-topped ebony 
cane was within easy reach. On her death a very large assembly of friends 
manifested their respect and esteem for the noble woman that had dwelt so 
long with them, by their presence at her obsequies in the Sutton Church; and 
she was laid to rest by the side of the Rev. Edmund Mills with whom her 
Sutton life began. 7 Mills chil.

her oldest and one of her most notable citizens. Born in this town, his life 
centered here, and his active participation in every event, and his interest in 
carrying forward every enterprise connected ver\^ intimately his name and his 
life with the history of the town. He held all the various offices of the town, 
was representative to the general court, justice of the peace, sheriff, and trial 
justice. In each and every place Mr. Mills gave dignity to the position and 
faithfully discharged its trusts, winning the respect and love of all with whom 
he was associated. To recall the work and incidents of his life is to recall the 
history of the town for the same period. . . . But not in these public positions 
will Mr. Mills be longest remembered, or his memory most dearly cherished, 
but in his large-hearted love and active sympathy, by the bedside of the sick 
and dying. In these last sad rites his was the helpful hand and the comforting 
words. So is his memory woven into the history of every family." 6 chil.

Chapman; Lydia Chapman, their daughter, m. Oct. 11, 1724, Zephaniah Swift, 
and was the mother of Mary, wife of Judah Moore. They first lived in Mans- 
field, Ct., and, April 15, 1765, they removed to Palmer, Ms. After the birth of 
their children they appear to have lived in Kingston, Ms., whence they went 
about 1778 to Wilmington, Vt., having been preceded by Zephaniah Swift, whose 
name appears among the "Heads of Families," April, 1771. On Sep. 25, 1781, 
"James Ely of Conway in ye Bay State," in consideration of fifty pounds, con- 
veyed to "Judah Moore late of Kingston in Bay State," 50 acres in Wilmington. 
He afterwards acquired other lands there, and on Feb. 2, 1791 "Judah Moore of 
Wilmington, yeoman," conveyed to "Judah Moore, Jr." of the same place, "gen- 
tleman" 200 acres in Wilmington. June 24, 1795, "Judah Moore, of Wilmington, 
gentleman," conveyed to "My son Jonathan Moore, of Wilmington, one half of 
two certain lots of land in Wilmington." 

At a town meeting in Wilmington, May 1, 1780, it was "Voted to build a 
log meetinghouse, 22 feet wide by 36 feet long." Also "Voted to build the 
same as near the center of the town as may be," and "Capt. Moore, Lieut. 
Waste, and Thomas Haskell" were chosen a committee "to select a place and 
build the same." — "Wilmington Reunion," pp. 53-4. There is no known record 
of the death of Capt. Judah Moore, Sr., and the headstone, said once to have 
been standing at his grave in the North Cemetery, is not to be found; but he 
lived to a great age, and within the memory of his great granddaughter, Mrs. 
Esther Smith Packard Forbes, b. June 17, 1817, he was going about Wilming-

father's farm in Wilmington, Vt., until he was about eighteen, receiving the 
instruction provided in the common school, only; but from the first he had a 
strong desire for learning, and his parents, though possessed of only moderate 
means, encouraged and aided him to obtain it. He went to Bennington Academy 
for his short preparatory course, and was admitted to Dartmouth College in 
his nineteenth year. He was graduated in 1793, and after spending a year in 
teaching as Principal of the academy at Londonderry. N. H., with satisfaction 
to all, he began the study of Theology with Dr. Charles Backus of Somers, Ct.; 
and on Feb. 3, 1796, he was licensed to preach by the Association of Tolland 
Co. His early ministrations were such as to induce several invitations to a 
settlement, and, on June 10, 1798, he was ordained pastor of the Cong. Ch. in 
Leicester, Ms., where he became an active trustee, and for a time was Prin- 
cipal of Leicester Academy; and he was highly esteemed among the neighboring 
chc^rches as a man and a preacher until his dismissal, Oct. 28, 1811, when he 
accepted the appointment of Prof, of Latin and Greek in Dartmouth. Here 
he exerted an influence for order, religion, and morality among the students 
and the community for four years that, soon after his election to the presidency 
of Williams, led the Trustees of Dartmouth to confer on him the degree of 
D. D., 1816. Four discourses from his pen were published. 

Williams College in 1815 was a small institution with a situation unfavorable 
to growth; and at the meeting. May 2, 1815, at which Prof. Moore was elected 
Pres., the Trustees chose a committee to consider and report at the next meeting 
on a favorable place to which the college might be removed. The Franklin 
County Association of Cong. Ministers, at a meeting in Shelburn, May 10, 1815, 
in view of the probable benefits resulting to the community from the establish- 
ment of a college in old Hampshire Co., voted unanimously, "that the town 
of Amherst appeared to them to be the most eligible place for locating such an 
Institution."* When invited to the presidency of Williams, Prof. Moore was

informed by the messenger of the action of the Trustees as to the removal of 
the college, and told that there was no doubt of the removal, the only question 
being in which of several towns it should be located. The necessity of removal 
was understood by Prof. Moore; he accepted the presidency with that in view, 
and during his connection with Williams endeavored to bring it about. 

"He had now found a congenial element and his appropriate sphere. His 
bland manners set the trembling candidate for admission to the Freshman class 
instantly at ease in his presence. His kind and sympathetic heart made every 
student feel that he had in the President a personal friend. At the same time 
his firmness in the administration of the government convinced even the Sopho- 
mores that they had found their master and must obey the laws. The effect 
was soon seen in the good order, the gentlemanly deportment, and the studious 
habits of the young men; a gradual though not rapid increase in numbers, and 
the growing prosperity of the college." 

Students from Dartmouth, and from the vicinity of Leicester, where he had 
been pastor and teacher, accompanied the Pres. to Williams; and, under his 
administration, between 1815 and 1818, the attendance was increased from fifty- 
eight to ninety-one, due chiefly to his personal influence. This encouraged 
him to expect still greater achievements with better conditions, and to more 
strenuous exertions to remove the college. At a Trustees' meeting, Nov. 10, 
1818, the Pres. declared his intention to resign unless the removal could be 
effected in accordance with the understanding at the time of his accepting the 
presidency; and a resolution that it was expedient to remove the college was 
passed by a vote of nine out of twelve of the trustees; but the difficulty in pro- 
curing favorable legislation, and the bitter opposition of the town's people de- 
layed and finally prevented the change. For some years there had been an 
institution of learning at Amherst which it was proposed to erect into a college, 
and the Trustees invited Dr. Moore to become its president. In his letter of 
acceptance, dated at Williamstown, June 12, 1821, he says: "I had made up my 
mind to resign my office in this college next Commencement. Providence had 
clearly made it consistent with my duty to leave then, if not sooner. I have 
ascertained so far as I had opportunity, the opinion of those who are the friends 
of evangelical truth with respect to the necessity, prospects, and usefulness of 
such an institution as that contemplated at Amherst." His salary was fixed at 
twelve hundred dollars. 

"At Williamstown, of course, the excitement ran high. The people of the 
town sent in a spirited remonstrance against the removal of the College, and 
certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, holding President Moore largely re- 
sponsible, vented their resentment against him by shaving and cutting off the 
tail of his horse. And the good President drove his horse down to Amherst in 
that condition, saying he did not see why the follies of a few rowdies should 
deprive him of the use of the animal, and it did not hurt his feelings any more 
than it hurt the feelings of the horse." 

Amherst College was opened Sep. 19, 1821, and forty-seven students were 
admitted, a part into each of the regular classes; and fifteen of these followed 



MOORE. 221 

the Pres. from Williams. This, according to Dr. Humphrey, his successor, was 
probably the largest number "that had ever been matriculated on the first day of 
opening any new college." The field of labor now before Pres. Moore was full 
of promise, and he entered it with all his disciplined and matured energies 
dedicated to this the last work of his life on earth. The following extracts 
from the "History of Amherst College" indicate the extent of his labors and the 
esteem in which he was held there. 

"Prof. Charles U. Shepard of the class of '25 has contributed the following 
graphic sketch of men and things at Amherst in those early days ... 'In Dr. 
Moore, a gentleman of suave manners, of true Christian dignity, and of singular 
judgment in managing youth, we had an admirable president. I venture to 
suspect that he was the only College President in the United States, who, from 
the beginning, personally subscribed for the somewhat expensive numbers of the 
Journal of the Royal Institute, of London. From this source and others similar, 
he appears to have gained a prevision of the importance of the modern sciences 
in education; and to him mainly, are we indebted for the early foothold which 
they gained in the Institution.' . . . 

"The amount of labor which he had been performing for nearly two years, 
together with the responsibility and anxiety that pressed upon him, were 
enough to break down the most vigorous constitution. In addition to his appro- 
priate duties as President and as Chairman of the Board of Trustees, he heard 
all the recitations of the Senior, and in part those of the Sophomore class, 
performed several journeys to Boston to promote the interests of the Institution, 
and solicited in a number of places pecuniary aid in its behalf. The revival, 
while it gladdened his heart beyound measure greatly added to his labors and 
responsibilities. His constitution, naturally strong, was overtaxed by such ac- 
cumulated labors and anxieties, and had begun to give way perceptibly, before 
the attack of disease which terminated his life. 

"On Wednesday the 25th of June, he was seized with a bilious colic. From 
the first the attack was violent, and excited fears of a fatal termination. 
'During his short sickness' we quote the language of a loving and beloved pupil, 
one of the converts in the recent revival, (Prof. Bela B. Edwards in the Quar- 
terly Register, Vol. V, p. 183). 'The college was literally a place of tears. 
Prayer was offered unto God unceasingly for him. We have never seen more 
heartfelt sorrow, than was depicted in the countenances of nearly a hundred 
young men, all of whom loved him as their own father. But while they were 
filled with anxiety and grief, Dr. Moore was looking with calmness and joy 
upon the prospects which were opening before him. While flesh and heart 
were failing him, Christ was the strength of his heart and the anchor of his 
soul. And when his voice failed and his eyes were closing in death, he could 
still whisper, "God is my hope, my shield, and my exceeding great reward." ' 

"He died on Monday, the 29th of June, 1823, in the fifty-third year of his age. 
The funeral solemnities were attended on the Wednesday following, in the 
presence of a great concourse of people from Amherst and the surrounding 
region. An appropriate sermon was preached by Rev. Dr. Snell, of North

Brookfield. As they returned from committing the remains to the ground, in 
the cemetery where they now rest beneath a monument erected by the Trustees; 
the guardians and teachers, the students and friends of the Institution all felt 
for the moment that its hopes were buried in the grave of its first President; 
for who could take his place and carry on the work which he had so well begun, 
but which had proved too heavy a burden even for him to bear? So profound 
was the sympathy of the Senior class with their beloved president, that they 
were reluctant to take any part in the Commencement exercises at which he 
could not preside. And so dark, in their view, was the cloud which rested on 
the infant seminary, that, reduced to despair, they were on the point of closing 
their connection with it and graduating at some other Institution. Accordingly 
at the close of the funeral services, the class appeared before the Board of 
Trustees, and asked to be released from all participation in the Commencement 
Exercises, and with all further connection wtih the College. (Manuscript 
letter of Rev. Theophilus Packard). But at the earnest solicitation of the 
Board they consented to stand in their lot. 

"Of his importance to this Institution and the invaluable services which he 
rendered to it in its early struggles for existence, none was more competent to 
testify, and no one has done it with more truth and eloquence than his suc- 
cessor in the Presidency. 'If we estimate the length of life by what a man 
actually accomplishes for the best good of his kind,' says Dr. Humphrey in his 
Inaugural Address, 'we shall see that Dr. Moore, though taken away in the high 
meridian of his usefulness, was "old and full of days." To say nothing here 
of the ability with which he filled other important stations, and of the good 
which he did in them all, the services rendered by him to this Institution, 
within less than the short space of two years were sufficient to entitle him to 
the gratitude of thousands now living, and of far greater numbers who are yet 
to be born. Broad and deep are the foundations which he assisted in laying 
upon this consecrated hill. Strong was his own arm, freely was it offered for 
the great work, and powerful was the impulse which his presence and ever- 
cheering voice gave to the wakening energies of benevolence around him. But 
highly as his various plans and counsels and labors are now appreciated, future 
generations in walking over this ground, with the early history of the College 
before them, will, there is little reason to doubt, place him still higher among 
its distinguished benefactors. It will then appear, what and how much he did 
to give shape and character to an Institution which, we believe, is destined to 
live and bless the church in all coming ages. 

" 'By nature a great man. by grace a good man. and in the providence of God a 
useful man, a correct thinker and a lucid writer, a sound theologian, instruct- 
ive preacher and greatly beloved pastor, a wise counselor and sympathetic 
friend, a friend and father especially to all the young men of the infant College 
in which he was at the same time a winning teacher and a firm presiding officer, 
Dr. Moore filled every station he occupied with propriety, and raised the reputa- 
tion of every literary institution with which he became connected.' Such in 
brief, is the character sketched of him by one who knew him intimately both 



MOORE. • 223 

in the pastorate and in the presidency, and who was incapable of an exaggeration. 

"Dr. Moore was a man of medium stature, but of commanding presence, 
weighing some two hundred and forty pounds, yet without any appearance of 
obesity, neat in his dress, retaining his use of short breeches and long hose 
which were particularly becoming to his person; and in his manners there was 
a union of suavity and dignity, rare anywhere, especially in persons bred in 
the country, which marked him as a gentleman of the old school, one of nature's 
noblemen, and which, while it attracted the love of his pupils, invariably com- 
manded also their respect. 

"His corpulence gave additional pertinence and force to a story which the 
early students were fond of telling, illustrative of the quiet dignity and felicity 
with which he administered reproof. T., a wild, frolicsome, and noisy student, 
one day came jumping and halooing through the halls and down the stairways 
just as Dr. Moore was entering the outer door, and was very near running over 
the Doctor. 'T.' said the President with perfect self-possession and serenity, 
'you should remember that two bodies cannot occupy the same place at the 
same time.' 

"He reposed great confidence in the honesty and good intentions of the stu- 
dents and was especially slow co impeach their veracity. The same student of 
which the above anecdote is related, tried the President's patien'^e in a great 
many ways, among others by going out of town without leave. Once when the 
President charged him with this offense, he denied it. There was scarcely room 
for a doubt that he was guilty of falsehood. But taking him at his word, the 
President said: 'I am glad to find that you did not go; I could not believe that 
you would do such a thing.' The student went away ashamed of his falsehood, 
and declared to his fellows that he would never lie again to Dr. Moore. 

"A vein of pleasantry ran through Dr. Moore's dignity, and his habitual 
serenity was often suffused with smiles. When he arrived at Amherst with his 
shaven and shorn horse, and some of the good people expressed their indigna- 
tion at the outrage, he said: 'I have nothing to say about the treatment I have 
received at Williamstown, but my horse can tell his own tale.' 

"Habitually courteous himself, he expected and received courtesy from every 
student. 'No student could pass him without lifting his hat with a smile. The 
Doctor would always set the example, and if the first lifting of his own hat did 
not lead the student to raise his hat, the President would raise his the second 
time. I never saw the man who so commanded my love and veneration.' 
(Manuscript letter of Rev. Nahum Gould, of Class of '25). 

"Letters from those who graduated under him abound in illustrations of his 
personal kindness to them, sympathizing with them, loaning them money, and 
otherwise relieving their wants; and he always did these acts of kindness in 
so kind and winning a way as to double their value. The writers of all seem to 
feel that no other President ever w^as so courteous and kind, — none so highly 
honored and beloved. And 'when it was told in College that Dr. Moore could 
not live' — we borrow the language of one of the letters — 'a deep electrical throb 
of anguish ran through all the classes. How can he be spared? was the agonized 



224 MOORE. 

cry of every one we met. Who can fill his place? Who can do as he has done? 
Who can have the confidence of the community and the love of the students as 
he had?' 

"Dr. Moore left no children. He bequeathed his property, valued at some six 
thousand dollars, to his wife for her use while she lived, and after her death 
three-fifths of it to the Institution for the foundation of scholarships, three of 
which, bearing his name and worth about one hundred and fifty dollars a year 
each, now help to support three students nominated by the Brookfield Associa- 
tion of Congregational Ministers. According to the provisions of the will, two- 
fifths of the annual interest of his legacy are to be added to the principal, so 
as to make it, like the Charity fund, an increasing fund forever. As the fund 
accumulates, the number of beneficiaries is to be increased from time to time. 

"Mrs. Moore long survived him, living to advanced years, and through all 
these years nursing his estate with the most scrupulous assiduity for the benefit 
of the College, which she loved for its own sake as well as for the memory of 
her husband. She died Nov. 5, 1857. aged eighty-six years. Her remains lie 
beside those of her husband beneath an appropriate marble monument erected 
to his memory by the Trustees. (The estate left by her husband has been in- 
creased by her economy and good management)."

invitations from friends in B. to establish his business there, and he removed 
to B., where many buildings erected by him demonstrate his ability as a builder. 
As a man, he commanded the respect and esteem of all that knew him. His 
kind heart, his cheerful disposition, his indomitable courage, and his regard for 
the rights and feelings of others endeared him to the whole community.

of Henry and Sarah (Willsey) Moore of Milford. She is a woman of uncommon 
mental powers, has a fine library, is a great reader, and stores her mind with 
knowledge that, like many of the Fulhams, she never loses. She was left a 
widow by the accidental death of her husband, and assumed the responsibility 
of settling his estate consisting of a section — 140 acres — of land, and thousands 
of dollars in stock and tools; the management of which required executive 
ability equal to that of an able man; but she brought it to a successful termina- 
tion, acting so conscientiously and well her part as to escape unfavorable 
crit'cism. Since then she has managed a farm of nearly 300 acres, and has 
shown unusual capacity for farming. She is a lover of flowers, and discourses 
about them in the language of a botanist. From the first, she manifested an 
interest in this work, and she has spent considerable time and money in the 
collection of records that aid in developing the history of her ancestors herein.

d. July 17, 1878; son of Lancy and Sally (Titus) Forbes of W. Esther 
was a Congregationalist, and declined Volney's offer of marriage unless 
he would join her church, which he, being a member of the Universalist 
Church, would not do. On reflection, she judged that, since he pre- 
ferred his church to her, he must be a man of character, which might 
be the result of his faith; she married him, and his faith soon became 
her own. For many years she was Supt. of the Univ. Sunday School, 
and, after her husband's death, she continued to cherish his faith in 
the final salvation of all men from sin. She was educated at the 
Academy of Bennington, Vt., with Edwin H. Chapin, afterwards a 
celebrated Universalist Divine; and she related that his oratorical powers 
were then so great that, when a prize for declamation was offered, many 
students would decline to compete if Chapin was to speak. After he was 
ordained, being at Bennington, Chapin's admirers wished him to preach 
in the Cong. Ch., but the authorities of the ch. refused to permit it; 
whereupon, the ladies of the town declared that, if Edwin Chapin could 
not preach there, there would be another Battle of Bennington; consent 
was given, and Chapin preached. At the Wilmington Reunion, July 4, 
1890, Mrs. Forbes read an original poem in the style of Hiawatha, that 
indicated considerable ability; and it was printed with the other pro- 
ceedings. At the age of 86, Mrs. Forbes, when visited by the Author, 
was keeping house alone and doing her own work.

started West; and finding no roads beyond Detroit, they went up the Detroit 

River, through Lake St. Clair, up Clinton River to Clemens, and by way of 

Utica to Avon, where they settled in the forest, 

on a farm of 160 acres. They built a house "of 

logs, covering the roof with elm bark that kept 

out only part of the storm, and making the floor 

of split basswood. At the first Town Meeting in 

Avon, George W. Postal was elected Overseer of 

Highways. In 1821 a school was opened in a log 

building erected for its use near the Postals; and 

the Methodists held Sunday services in the Postal 

house. In 1825 Mr. Postal built a sawmill on his 

farm, by Clinton River; and years after his son 

Charles built a grist-mill near it. 

Lydia Fulham Postal was large, tall, erect, 
stately, and very beautiful. She inherited much 
of the courage and strength of her Fulham an- 
cestors; and many stories are told of her brave 
exploits in connection with the neighboring In- Lydia Flliiam Postal, 1. 
dians. Her last days were spent with her son George, and in her many walks 
"across lots" over the hills of Avon to visit her daughter Sarah, her tall, straight 
figure, after three score years and ten, often awakened admiration. 8 chil. b. 1,

second growth of brush. Removing this growth by the ordinary method would 

cost $10 an acre; when made fit for cultivation it

from this service, he expects to realize large profits 
from the mohair, averaging about five pounds a 
goat each year, and worth from 25 cents to $2 
a pound; and from the natural increase of his

1 (VII.) CANDACE LUCRETIA FULHAM (279) SKINNER of Waterville, 
Me., dau. of Sewall and Eunice Howe (Goddard 86) Fulham (277) ; b. in Ludlow, 
Vt, April 28, 1828; d. Dec. 16, 1899 in Waterville; 
m. June 29, 1854, Rev. JOSEPH OBERLIN SKIN- 
NER, A. M., a Universalist Clergyman, b. Feb. IS, 
1816; d. Jan. 12, 1879 in Waterville; son of David 
Skinner of Piermont, N. H. 

At the age of six or seven years she had a severe 
attack of pneumonia, the apparent cause of delicate 
health during the rest of her life; and in later 
years she suffered for long periods from a com- 
plication of many forms of disease, the probable 
result of this early sickness. During several of 
her latest years her sight was impaired so as to 
prevent any considerable use of her eyes in read- 
ing, writing, or study; and entirely incapacitate 
her for the various kinds of artistic work with a 
needle at which she was an adept, and in which 
she had found great delight. For nearly four Candace L. F. Skinneh. 
years she was unable to converse except in whispers, but her voice was restored 
during the last few months. 

She inherited in considerable measure the massive brain of her father, 
Sewall Fulham, her head having a circumference of 23i/^ inches, with much of 
his intellectual power and his marvelous memory; and she developed these to 
the uttermost by the studious habits of a lifetime. Her opportunities for in- 
struction were limited to the common school and the village academy, in which 
she ranked as one of the best of her class; but in these she made only the begin- 
ning of her scholarly attainments, which finally reached a degree of excellence 
known to few. 

For some years she was a teacher of public and private schools; and between 
1847 and 1850 she taught Freach to pupils of the academy at Ludlow. In 1850 
she became Preceptress of the Liberal Institute at Waterville, Me., a Universalist 
school, in which she was associated, first, with James P. Weston, D. D., after- 
wards Pres. of Lombard University; and finally with Harris M. Plaisted, in later 
times Member of Congress and Governor of Maine. Here her fitness for the 
position was so well recognized that, when occasion required, she was intrusted 
with the instruction of any and all classes. Her scholarly accomplishments 
included a thorough knowledge of the Latin and the French languages; a less 
acquaintance with the Greek and Italian; familiarity with botany; and the 
mastery of English in all its details. And she was an excellent mathematician. 

Never having been taught to speak French by one "to the manner born," 
she was not satisfied with her attainments in that language; and, when she 
learned that an educated Frenchman, Dr. Samuel A. Buteau, A. B., was teaching 



2f^2 SKIXXER. 

in the. academy at Ludlow, she took a vacation, in the winter term of the In- 
stitute, 1851-2, and devoted it to study under his instruction during all available 
hours between 5 a. m. and 10 p. m., six days in a week, and with such success 
that Dr. Buteau afterwards said to her father: "Miss Fulham is the best French 
scholar I ever had." At the end of this course a copy of "Grammaire de 
Grammaires," Paris Edition, and two smaller text books, such as were used by 
Dr. Buteau in his instruction, as authorities, were imported from France for 
her; and. thus equipped, she returned to her teaching and study. On the final 
settlement of the family in Waterville, Me., her husband's last pastorate, Mrs. 
Skinner found herself among her former pupils and old friends, and resumed 
her teaching of French, especially, and other branches of learning, to their 
children and others that sought instruction at her home. 

On Sunday, Feb. 5, 1878, while engaged in a funeral service at the Congrega- 
tional Church of Waterville, Mr. Skinner was prostrated by paralysis, which, 
after nearly a year of helplessness, caused his death. He had been Editor of 
the Universalist Register, a statistical annual of the denomination, for several 
years; and, during his disability, she gathered the data, prepared the copy, and 
directed the publication of the issue of 1879. In the following year she was 
appointed Editor by the Universalist Publishing House, and she continued the 
work until after the publication of the number for 1881, when a long and severe 
sickness terminated the employment. 

After the death of her husband, Mrs. Skinner resumed the instruction of 
private pupils, and included that of her son, who, at the age of fifteen, had never 
attended school. Among her pupils was a promising young man that had been 
entered at Colby University, but, by reason of ill-health, was unable to pursue 
the regular curriculum. Mrs, Skinner became his tutor, and he remained under 
her instruction, devoting to his studies such time as his strength permitted, 
until his advancement was satisfactory to him and his friends. 

She was a great reader and familiar with the writings of the best authors, 
repeating from memory much, especially poetry, that she admired. She was 
devoted to her church, and as long as her strength admitted, she gave much 
time to its service, particularly in the Sunday School, collecting funds for the 
purchase of books for its library, and putting them in repair, often with her 
own hands. 

The loss of her first-born, a child of great promise, at the age of fourteen 
months, was an abiding grief to her motherly heart; cognizance of him seemed 
ever uppermost in her thoughts, and "Little Eddie" came daily from her lips. 
A union with him and the many loved ones gone before was her dearest hope, 
and. in her faith, was an almost accomplished fact; the prospect of death was 
sweet to her, and when it came, it was without suffering or sorrow that she 
entered the immortal life. Her body, by her request, was laid between her 
husband and her infant son. near her parents in the Cemetery of her native 
town, where a monument bears an inscription for each. 2 chil.

1877; was graduated from Roxbury Latin School in 1895, and from Harvard 
College in 1899; and then settled in New York. He is reputed to be one of the 
best pianists in New York. The following excerpts from musical criticisms 
relate to him: — "Wesley Weyman, who chose to introduce himself in a pro- 
gramme of Liszt's music, was a Harvard man of 1899, and since then has 
studied with Dr. William Mason 



272 



WEYMAN 




"The recital last night proved that he must be taken seriously, and that 
he possesses, together with an adequate technique, that rare and desirable 
quality, a singing tone. . . . Mr. Weyman has not only this fortunate gift 
properly developed, but he has also a sense of color and a feeling of dynamic 
shading found only in the equipment of a sincere musician. The gradual 
working up to the climax in the opening of the 
'Funerailles' w^as as excellent a piece of pianistic 
management as has been heard in Mendelssohn 
Hall this year. Throughout the evening, more- 
over, Mr. Weyman sought and obtained a variety 
of touch and accent quite extraordinary. ..." 
— Samuel Swift in New York Mail and Express, 
on the debut of Mr. Weyman, after Ossip Ga- 
brilowitsch, Marc Hambourg, Raoul Pugno, Fred- 
eric Lamond, and Mme. Roger-Miclos had played 
in Mendelssohn Hall, in 1903. 

"Mr. Weyman yesterday showed himself a 
pianist of great technical talent, he has all the 
attributes of a virtuoso. ... He has indubitable 
talent of a high order. He sees things dramatically, 
sometimes poetically; he understands the working 

of a climax; his rhythm is admirable; above all, Wesley Weyman. 

he has emotion, and can express it. Last night there were many beautifully 
turned phrases, much good tone, and some fine effects of pedaling. Particularly 
poetic and satisfying was the close of the Sonnet. In Mr. Weyman there is the 
making of a really great artist." — From Boston Transcript, Nov. 30, 1904; after 
the debut of Mr. Weyman in Boston. 

"Wesley Weyman gave his annual recital in Mendelssohn Hall, Thursday 
evening before an audience of good size. Mr. Weyman enjoys an enviable posi- 
tion and reputation for serious musicianship and high ideals. He demonstrated 
further his claims to these qualities by the recital which revealed him a pianist 
of very high order, free from all claptrap and stage effects. His might have 
been called a sonata recital, because with the exception of three Chopin numbers 
there were only sonatas and sonata movements on the programme. Included 
were Mozart's Sonata in D Major, Liszt's Sonata in B Minor, the Scherzo from 
Chopin's B Flat Minor Sonata, the Largo from the B Minor Sonata of the same 
composer, and the Minuetto from Chopin's Sonata in C Minor. Mr. Weyman 
played the Mozart number with great classical purity and simplicity, and showed 
remarkable contrast of equipment and interpretation in the massive work of 
Liszt which followed. . . . Mr. Weyman fully deserved the enthusiastic applause 
accorded him, and he contributed a supplementary Liszt number at the close of 
the programme. It is only teaching to the extent that he does that keeps this 
talented young pianist off the wider concert platform because his equipment is 
far beyond the ordinary." — From "The Concert Goer" of Chicago. 111., April 
11, 1907.

L. At the age of twenty-two he engaged in trade, and he followed it thereafter 
during his business years, first in dry goods and groceries, afterwards as a dealer 
in flour and grain. He held many offices in Ludlow, was several times Lister, 
Constable, and Collector of Taxes; and in 1871 and 1872 he represented the town 
in the State Legislature. In 1876 he was a Senator from Windsor Co.; and he 
was Enrolling Officer in the Civil War. He was a Deacon of the Universalist 
Church in Ludlow for many years, and a Trustee of the Society 12 years im- 
mediately following its incorporation in 1888; and he was a member of the 
board of Trustees of the Universalist Convention of Vermont and Province of

Oct. 13, 1874, John Murray Aldrich. a druggist, b. Dec. 11, 1847; son of 
Dr. Levi and Eunice Paulina (Morse) Aldrich of Reading, Vt. She had 
been the owner of a drug-store in New Richmond, Wis., and doing business 
many years, when, on June 12, 1899, she lost her stock of goods, her furni- 
ture and clothing in the tenement over the store, and everything she pos- 
sessed, in a cyclone that instantly prostrated every business structure and 
100 dwelling-houses in the city, and in which 120 people perished. At the 
approach of the storm she and a lawyer occupying an office in the second 
story took refuge in the basement of her building of brick, where both 
were buried in the ruins and in danger of being burned alive by the con- 
flagration that followed. Her cries brought assistance by which both were

springing from or connected by marriage with them, whose names appear in CAI'ITALS 
at the tops of the pages indicated. 

In the Index, the names of all having Fulham blood, and of collateral relatives 
separately mentioned, stand in the order of their surnames ; and where more than one 
page number is given, they may refer to different persons of the same name : and the 
same name may appear more than once on a page of the Genealogy. 

Names of ancestors and of husbands and wives, not of the blood, will be found, in 
connection with those whom they are respectively connected with, only in the Genealogy, 
unless their surnames appear at the tops of pages in CAPITALS.
