rHERK aic cliaiacteristic epochs in the social life of 
a people, which, though usually unnoticed by the 
historiau, yet mark different i:ihascs in the devel- 
opmeiit of the nation. Perliajis it is that the various 
changes in national evolution bring with t'leni tlie foices 
which determine, nr>t only tlie material environment of 
poverty or wealth, but also tlie very lines along v/hich 
are exerted the activities of the mind What once v.-as 
considered uuworthy or useless, may nov. be seen to be 
both valuable and worth one's v.hile. 

In the early life of a nation, the people are over- 
occupied in those things that minister directly to their 
immediate v/auts; while as national organization ad- 
vances, there comes both the meaus to acquire, and the 
leisure to enjoy the luxuries of life. The hardships 
met and overcome in the early days develop heroes, 
great men and women, whose children we are; and it 
is with legitimate pride that we trace back our descent 
to some who were " giants in those days," if not in 
public life, yet in the greatness of their moral excellence. 
No higher nobility, and no more royal ancestry, can 
ever be found than that wherein it can be said of each 
generation's head, " He was a good man.'' 

And so it is, that as the years go by, and generation 
succeeds generation in an ever-increasing enjoyment of 
life, there grows out of the desire to knov.' whence we 
are, an eager study of Genealogy. 

The present volume is the result of no litlle eiTort 
through many years, to place in ijermanent fen; the 
records of the immediate line of the fauiily of the Com- 
piler, together with what be ha.s collected coucerning 

other American branches of the sauie family' name. 
And it seems fitting here to teil the story of the origin 
and gro-,vth of this history of tiie Jennings family in 

In tlie early part of this centiiry, great interest was 
awakened among those of the Jcuuings name, by reason 
of the report that the heir to ihe vast estates oi William 
Jennens of Acton, England, was to be found in some 
Jennings family in America. Not to discuss the merits 
of the case, it will be sufficient to say that no litile en- 
thusiasm was aroused, conventions held, and a s)-slem" 
atic effort made to airive at a corr^rcl lineage for every 
one of tlie name v.dio joined in the work. Anicu,^ tliose 
who look some part in this effort, v/erc the immediate 
ancestors of the Compiler, to whor.e jiossession finally 
came a number of records and papers, and these became 
the basis of the work cariied on thiough a seoie of 
years, and resulting in the book now issued. Ah ex- 
tensive correspondence was begun with every Jennings 
whose name could be learned, and tlnough these, oih( r 
branches of the family were discovered until this cor- 
respondence spread throughout America, and even 
England. Througli the kindness of each corresjordent, 
(whicl; is hereby ackno\vled-:^ed), original recoids were 
suiDplied, or those in hand verified, until the Compiler 
is warranted in saying that wherever positive lacts are 
stated, that they may be relied on as correct. Every 
efi'ort has been made to arrive at the truth, and nothing 
is conjecture except where given as such. 

Among the materials received, there is found such 
a wealth of facts concerning collateral and related fam- 
ilies, that it has been deemed necessary to add certain 

It is also the ):iurpose of th.e Compiler to issue a 
volume of the Jennings faniily in England, w'tli chap- 
ters on " The Origin of the Name," " Armori;'.) Eviden- 
ces," "Early History of the Family," " individuals of 
Note," " Williaui Jennens of Acton- the Intestate — his 
estate, attempts to secure it," etc., etc , thus giving 
completeness as near as may be to th*:- work nudcrteiken. 

Also a book of places, or gener.logical charts will form 
a tl:ird volunie in the series. 

Hopino-that njy earnest labor has resulted in a 
contribution of \-aUie, not only to the family, but to 
student.? of family historj' in general, and with, grateful 
thani:s to all who liave in anj- way contributed to the 
accomplishoient of mj' ]nirpose, this volume is now 
sent forth. I remain, siT'.ccrely,

With onr first knowledge of that bra'jch of the 
Jennings faniih- to which this name has been given we 
have the tradition, that it consisted of seven brothers, 
namelv : 















Their immediate ancestry we cannot ascertain ; and 
even their place of birth is unknown. From a descend- 
ant of Jacob (3) we have learned of a tradition in his 
family to the effect that in consequence of a ship wreck 
the landing of this family was not made a matter of 
record ; and the following letter would seem to confirm 

this tradition : 

Winchester, Oct. 10, 18-18. 
To ]Mk. David L. Jexnings, 

St. Clairsville, Belmout Co., Ohio. 

Dear Sir — Yours of a previous date to hand and the contents 
noted. In reply 1 will say t)\at I wj'ote to Lycun,'UH after my 
rernru from tbc eust, .stating to hhu the points by mc jXsaOc iu 
regard to our Kiigland maUcr. But lor fear the leit'.T dii'. v.v 
reacli liim, I will, though in haste, note some oi tJieui to you, 
which you will please show to liim and Mr. Alexi!,L':i<'r. 

1st. I found on my last tour tbr" x/ilN of ray > ; lamt v\<\ f-ir.-ai. 
Grandfathers, and also your Grea.; Oraudfftthcr, tc-uctbcr wiih 
about ten or twelve more, made by othor persons iie.xring the 
uanic of Jeuuiug-i, on record, ni(^;:t of thcrn :it Perth A'aibviy, N. J. 


These records would carry us back to tiie Siitisfaetiou of iiii\ 
court. To that period there is do reeord in any -of thj (.lilct-; in 
Kew York that will render us assistasjce, I fouDd a very i.lU 
aiau (Wia. .lenuiiigs) livjij?: .".t Eliza bothtowu, X. J. Ht' told im; 
th?.t his Grandfather C'Uixie fron) luigland, ijiil he did not recollect 
his name, but said that youi- Ureat Oraudfather, Jacob, and my 
Great Gratidi'ather, Zebulon, -.vere related to biin ; that his auee-.- 
loi came over ou board the "Old Calledonia," wh'ch landed a( 
Perth Andioy, and that the vessel v.-cut to wreck. Then I went 
brck to X. Y. City, but found no entry made there of her landinir. 
I then v,-8i\t to P'rrth Andjoy and found tliere yet re)iiaiidng' the 
wreck of the '■ Old CalI<'doniu." 

She landed there about tlie year ]G8o loaded with einigraiits 
from Old Kngland. But th^ue M'ere only (svelve najne'-i of il,o 
emigi.'iDts recorded there; they were ]iroprietoivs to whom large 
grants of land were made in Ea^^t .Ter::ey. 

T VTent to Xew England, viz: Conneclic'it, to ;;ee tht- 
wbc have been to Old England. Tiiey have traced oiri. all I he 
br.inches of their fnn'iily and found that ihey ran quite loo f:ir 
back to be the heirs 

It has cost tlie;ii about $1,0(10 and they have about given i( up. 
They are satisfied that we do not belong to their une and tlu-y 
say tliat it our ancestors came over as late as lfiS5-or UiflO, they 
have but little doubt that wc are h.eirs to the estate, and they say 
they think we can succeed in tracing to our landing in tliis 
country. They say the points made by my research are highly 
important and encourage me to go on in the matter. There .are 
ten years yet in which we can make further research. 

But I fear the want of records iu this country back of ilie 
Revolution, and the mutilated records in Eugland, will prevent 
our success. I have a copy of the plot of the Jennings family iu 
England which shows that William Jennings died iutestate iu 
179S, a bachelor— that the estate left by him will now amount t<i 
from thirty to fifty millions of dollars — that there were si.v 
brothers to his father; two of them, *Henry and tAVilliam probably 
came to this country, as there is no trace of ihem there. There is 
no doubt that the leaves iu their record were cut out ou purpose to 
prevent our tracing to the estate. I have spent all the money 
raised for me iu making search, etc. 

There are two families, one iu Virginia and one in Jrassachu- 
setts, now tracing their families. How they may succeed I sh.ii! 
be informed in due time and Ihoii it will be time for me 'v joove 

*g^i"- Yours truly,

We also copy the following letter which siiows siill 
further the interest taken fifty years aijo in tracing the 

ancestry : 

SouTHi'OK'j, Faikfieli) Co.; ("un.v., Miiy 22, 1S4S. 
To Ml!. LicuHOi's Jennings, 

St. Clairsville, Deliiiont Co., Ohio. 

Dear .Sir — Yours flud.s me at my ex.'iiDiniitiou of JeiJiiir..e:a' 
records. I h:i\ u therefore turned to your br.'tiu'h of t.he family i\nd 
find your t^-iandfiither and (iJreat Grandfather wore both Jacob, 
the former hnvn 1744, the Litter 171!. I have this record of your 
lather's brother.s, to-wit : Samuel K,, Ktioiiezer, Jouatbaii, and 
your father David. If there are any more, or any sistere, jilease 
give them (o r.ic, a.s well a.s your brothers and si>iters. 

I have s]ent much time iu this iuvestigation, jiarticularly of 
CUV brancii of the family, liaving very full records of all the 
branches back to Joshua, uearly two hundred years. One agent 
found we went too far back, but, uotwithstaudiug, I have spout 
mueli ti'ne and money. 1 do not regret it, and I do fee! satisfied 
that seme of the descendants of Humphrey's children are in ihc 
Uniled fttalci;, altliough there is uo certainty with any fajnily 
that they will reach it; but it can be ascojlnit.ed for five or lea 
dollars fiouj each that aie willing to invcsligate the eubjeci, (as 
there are always a few willing to l;nov,- their anceslry, at a small 
tax, whether anything is realized or noi), wliether they desrciiiJtd 
from these brothers or who their ancestry is. 1 consider it worth 
the attention of the diflerent branches to give it a thorough investi- 
gation. As we have gone so far now, it will not be much expense. 
I have been engaged in this matter over two years and it wp.s not 
Uiitil last fall that we got ready to send our agent to England. "\Ye 
could not get much encouragement out of our branch, as they 
lived at a distance and were not aware what we were doing. Our 
agent found a large property left by William in 1798, (the list we 
have is correct generally, of which I presume you have a copy, as 
I have sent many copies to ditlereut sections) and no one of 
Humphrey's sons have been able to prove their relationship, 
although many in England have tried. Mr. Fordyce was here 
last week. I told him farther examination must be made in New 
Jersey, and I thought there was no doubt your aucestrj' came to 
Massaolmsctts and from there to Long Island and New Jersey, 
and I hoped you v.'ould conclude to ascertain as far as possible,who 
was the first of your family thai came over. If there waf^ no '.ue 
to go througli with it, I would r.tther investigate it th'in rste it 
dropped. It is well to use economy in the business until thvie is 
a degree of certainty, if it can be shown. I have counsoi in Jj:t;j- 
laud who informs me any trace to Humphriy'H sons or hrothnr 
he will undertake and get emi.aant counsel there to iusiitute a 
suit and risk expense, taking pay out of the pi'i-.pc' ly if suvCf .--ful. 
Yours iu haste, A'tJCUJ.-.-.iT'.S JEi\ 'NiK'. ;,-^.. 


A):'ci-.g the ancestors who came ovli' m the " Old 
Calledonia " in 1685, as has been suggestfcl, were prob- 
ably the grandparents of the " seven brothers," of whom 
Zebnlon (2) was born in 1700, Jacob (3) in 17J1, 
and Penjimiin (4) in 171G; from wlilch dates it 
wovihd appear that the "seven brothers" belong to the 
second generation after the arrival of the " Calledonia." 

We are sensible of the fact that the hj'pothesis 
here presented, that the so-called "Seven Brothers" are 
probably the ^;'«?^rt'^///7a'r£7z of the ancestor wlio came 
to America in the '■'■ Old Calledoma ,^'' conflicts sojne- 
v.'hat vv'ith the traditions of tlie fiiniily. There Is much 
reason for believing that these seven \\n<t closely re- 
lated and of a recent coDinion ancestor, bnt it is possi- 
ble thai this relationship as between son;e of them was 
not nearer than that of consins ; that is to say, the 
"Seven IJrothers" -were the sons of the son or sons oi 
the ancestor who is said to have been one of the CaUc- 
donia's passengers. 

Certain it is that in the earliest times to which 
research can accurately lead ns, the family of Joniiings 
was numerously represented in America. From the 
interest created and the enthusiasm aroused by the 
"Jennings Conventions" of fifty years ago, there re- 
sulted an extensive investigation along the various 
lines of ancestry ; these investigations were carried 
back by those who lived a half century nearer the 
beginning than we do, and there then seemed to be no 
doubting the tradition of the "Seven Brothers." It 
was known then and held to be true ; and we are work- 
ing now in harmony with it. But while this is the 
case, we are open to conviction as to the truth, however 
it may conflict with preconceived theories. That 
the father of one of the "Seven Brothers," Benjamin ( !), 
was also named Benjamin, would appear from the 
following :

Time, place, and the names mentioned in this 
account are the strongest circnmistaniial evidence of the 
fact that the Benjamin whose e£l:^te is hete adraiais- 
tered is the Bcnjamui (4) of l:;e "Seven E roth erf.." 
Whence it falls out that Benifiuiin B. Jcnnirigs who 
administers the estate is the father of one, if not of all 
of these "brothers," and, this being true, v.o feel war- 
ranted in saying that the Hue of Benjamin is authenti- 
cated back to the son of the ancestor v/ho xvas landed 
from the wreck of the ^^Old Calledoniay 

We thus raise the question with the hope that this 
hypothesis may be fully investigated and the truth 
positively learned. 

From another source* we have the follcAiiig: 

" In the Court uf Hustings, of the City of Lourtou, will t^o 
fouiul a testation of gift of IjilkI aud :t co]>y of t'tlie li<^ly Eviuige- 
liits hound iu red leather with a clasp,' to my ' right v,-e!i-boU)v;:td 
Zebulou" who is described as passing beyoud the sea. There are 
others mentioned but they fill ;ippcar to ix-iuaiLied iu 

Query. — Could this Zebulon who is described as 
''passing beyond the sea," be the ancestor who came 
over in the "C/«' Calledonia."!

Jennings's is here given as a matter of record, in the

Jonathan Jennings was probably boia at or near 
Westfield, Essex Co., New Jersey. 

Hig mother removed with her family to Pennsyl- 
vania, probably between the years J 785 and 1700. 

The descendants of Zebulon, Jacob and Berjjamin, 
seem to have come to PcnTisylvania about the j-anie

time, and settled in the sa;xi,e vicinity Jn the counties of 
Fayette, Green and Washington; these counties all 
bordering on the Monongahela River. 

The "Jennings Ferrj'," kept by Henry, brother cf 
Jonathan, was located nea: Masoutown, Fayette Co. 
The home of Jonathan seems to have been at or Yiear 
Brownsville, Washingtou Co. His daughter, Delilah, 
was born in Brownsville, while Junia, the next child, 
was born in Fayette Co. where bis parents were vi';!!:- 
iug ; presumably at Masoutown. The last y^ar iu 
Pennsylvania they were unsettled. 

Jonathan Jennings emigrated from Washington Cc. 
Fa., to Washington Co. O., in 1801. With his family 
and household goods he traveled to Wheeling, W^ Vs , 
in wagons, and from that point floated down the river 
on a flat-boat. He intended to settle on the £ig 
Muskingum River, but on arriving at the mouth of the 
Little Muskingum, about dusk, the water was so high 
that it misled them and they entered that river by 

This was on the evening of March 6, 1801. The 
point at which they lauded is where Lafaver's mill now 

After exploring a little while, Mr. Jennings de- 
cided that he had no need to go further ; the climate 
seemed all that could be desired ; the peach trees were 
in bloom, the grass green and the prospect most invit- 
ing to the weary family. The trip down the river had 
been a hazardous one, and to the parents burdened with 
the care of five children, the eldest of whom was but 
eight years of age, and the youngest, Junia, but an 
infant, it had seemed long and wearisome, and the 
itdjacent country being filled with hostile Indians, thoir 
voyage was extremely perilous. 

So it was that on the morning of March 7th, 1801, 
the family looked with most pleasurable anticipations 
over the beautiful country which was to become tlitir 

Mr. TcMnings built liis cabin on what is now knov/n 


as the Henry Jennings farm ; there they lived and pros- 
pered and four children vere born to them at this p]?.ce. 

Ml. Jeiiiiings tiuited theo-jcupations of sl'Ocnia] 
and blacksmithing. He was a man of considerable 
strength of cliaracter and was mnch respected h\ a]l 
his acquaintances. By his death at the early a[;e of 
thirty-nine years, his family suffered an irreparable loss. 

Elizabeth Stephenson, wife of Jonathan Jennings, 
was of Scotch-Irish parentage. Her father emigrated 
from Ireland and settled in Delaware, later moving to 

After the death of Mr. Jennings his widow manied 
Mr. William Nixon, a neighbor and widower. They 
both liad large families, (she having nine children and 
he having eight) by their former marriages ; and to thera 
were born four children, making twenty-one in all. 

Mrs. {^Jennings) Nixon was a good woman and was 
endowed with more than ordinary powers ol mind She 
possessed the love of all her children and step-children, 
to whom she strove to do her duty impartially and 
faithfully. At the time of her removal to Ohio .she 
was a Presbyterian, but there being no church of that 
denomination in her locality, ."^he united with the I\Teth- 
odists and retained her connection with that church 
until her death. She was buried by the side of Jona- 
than Jennings in sight of their old cabin home, in the old 
family burying ground, at Hills, Newport Township, 
Washington County, Ohio.

says : 

"Eobert ISIorrison, my gvaiidfutber, was of Bcoxch-Irigh 
parentage. He was horn in CVjunt;/ Detr.\', Ir>jlanil. The family 
was of the middle class, ueitLier y-uii nor rich, and was connected 
in marriage willi the Hamilfoub in ScotLaud. In 1TC5, when 
Robert was sixteen years old, with his brothers older Ibaa him- 
self, he came to America and sett!ed in Delaware. Sorae of them 
emigrated to the Valley of Virginia ; one kept on south; another 
■wing went west to Vineennes, Kaskasia and St. Louis. 

"After the Kevolutiouary V/ar, iu which Robart bad a share 
as one of the 'blue hen's chickens,' as f^oldicrs fro;<i Delaware 
■were called, he concluded to take his youns? wife, Eilzabetb 
Culberison, an English woman, and two little children, as I 
helieve, and go west. General Washington iiiked bira to take 
his tract of 600 acres in the northwestern part of Fayette County, 
Pa., lying on the Yoiighiogheuy river. He v.ent and looked at 
the land, but tiiought it too mach exposed to incursions from the 
Indians, and continued his journey about fifty miles .southwest 
into Green county, and bouglit out the IMoClurigs, who to-ok their 
slaves and went to Kentucky, as Pennsylvania had iu 1780 passed 
an ordinance of gradual emancipation. There my grandfather 
lived and reared a family of ten children and died at the age of 
eighty-two. There my father, Thomas Morrison, wps born an;l

They had no children but tai.sed a large family, a 
number of tlicir adopted children still residing in 
Washirijnon Co. 

"Zebulon Jennings (called by old and young 
'Uncle Zeb' ) like most of the early settlers, -was some- 
thing of a 'Jack of all trades,' working as occasion re- 
quired, at blacksmithing, shoemakiug, tanning and 
farming. At the time of the removal of his father's 
family to Ohio, he was in his ninth hear. After he 
was of age, Zebulon bought the first eighty acres of 
what is known as Jennings Hill, the consideration 
being a box of glass. He had raised a colt and rode 
it to Wheeling on the 'old trail' — the \Voodsfield road — 
where he exchanged it for glass, one box of which was 
already bargained away. He afterwards added many 
more acres. He was a member of Captain Buell's 
company in the war of 1812. His commission as 
Lieutenant in the State Militia is dated Oct. 11, 1817. 
Later he received a commission as Captain. 

In early life he united with the Baptist church and 
retained his connection with that body up to the time 
of his death. He was an ardent abolitionist, and his 
house was used as a station on the 'Underground Rail- 
way. ' He was a man of strict integrity and goodness 
of heart, which virtues won for him the esteem of his 
neighbors and acquaintances. 


Betsey Maxon was one of the first children bora in 
the fort at Marietta. Her father, Richard Maxon, set- 
tled on Duct Creek at the same time Stanley and Chap- 
man did. At the age of fifteen, she taus^ht the first 
school ever opened in Dnck Creek and continued teach- 
ing in the various settlements near there until she was 
twenty-six. Her contracts read, 'that she shall be paid 
in good merchantable corn and other products, to be 
delivered at Marietta.' One read that the chairman 
of the school committee shall have D. Protsman make 
her a set of silver teaspoons. At her first terra there 
were but two books, the spelling book and English 
reader. She taught other things by 'word of mouth' she 
said. But it was not long until they had books, as well 
as bears, who came for the remains of the dinners. 
The school Iiouse stood at the mouth of Sugar llun, 
above Cay wood.''

Margaret Jennings, or as she was more commonly 
knov/n, "Aunt Peggy,'' still holds a warm place in the 
lienrts of those who knew her well in life. She was a 
woman of more than ordinary powers of mind although 
they were not fully developed. She was a very flueut 
speaker aud an earnest exhortev, and was very active in 
the work of the United Brethren Church, of which she 
was a member, although in her earlit- r years .she had 
been a Methodist. 

Her first husband, George Nixon, was the son of 
William Nixon, her step father. He was not a mem- 
ber of any church but was a good man of considerable 
education and had much influence. His death at the 
early age of twenty-five years cut short a life which 
promised to be one of great usefulness and prominence. 

Presley Petty, the second husband of Margaret, 
was a farmer by occupation and much respected by his 
neighbors. He, like his wife, was a member of the 
United P>rethreu Church. He was a soldier in the war 
ot 1812 in Captain John Thorniley's company.

Deliiah (Jennings) Reckard was a womau of stronfj 
character and a devout christian. At the time of the 
removal in 1801, of her father's famil)' from Pennsylva- 
nia to Washington County, Ohio, she was but three 
years old. For eighty years she remained a resident 
of Washington County, and at the time of her death, 
possessed the uuqualilied esteem and love of her many 
acquaintances. She joined the j\lethodist Churcli in 
18'J0 and remained a faithful and consistent member of 
that denomination till within a few years of her death, 
■when, with the most of her family, she left the Method- and joined the Congregational Church. 

^Joseph Leonard Reckard, or, as he was very gener- 
ally known, Leonard Reckard, was a man of the purest 
life, of gentle disposition and kindly heart ; he merited 
that warm affection -which was bestowed on him by all 
who knew him. 

In connecticn with his trade as a blacksmith, he 
opened the first livery stable in Marietta, in v/hich 
business he continued until his death. 

For more than fifty years he v/as a member of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church. 

•llr spdlcd his name Record. His falher, Calvin Rickard, was a desccodant o( 
Cilci kickard. Calvir.'s childicn spell it Reckard. (Sec appindi-.)

Junia Jenning.s was converted in 1820 under the 
preaching of Rev. Samuel Hamilton and joined the 
Methodist Church, remaining a faithful member of that 
denomination itntil he died. When upon his death-bed 
one of the Marietta papers spoke of him in the follow- 
ing manner : 

"Father Juuia Jcuniugs, having passed his allotted tjiree 
score and ten years, is now lying very ill at hi.s residence ou 
Fourth Street, with scarcely a prosjiect of his recovery. Father 
Jennings was an active pioneer in tlie auli-slavery in Wash-

his life. His many friends will be glad to hear Ihat his last days 
Mil free from paiuaud that he views tlie close calmly and v>eace- 

His pastor, Rev. T. W. Stanley in au obituar)' 
notice, says : 

"Jlis life is one of those well worth record and study. It was 
an example of faithfulness iu all respects. He was always in his 
place at public services and other means of giace. Though his 
^u(lerings were constant and frequently so great that he was in 
phvsical agony, he never absented himself from the sanctuary. 
Kiiin, heat, pain and weariness kept him not at hoaic. Many of 
the leading men iu the churches will remember him as the first 
who approaclied them npon the subject of religion, the tiist who 
prayed with them at thealtar. He has been a I'aithful class-leader 
luid steward and trustee. He was a-gw)d counselor for the pastor 
— llie preacher's friend." 

Junia Jennings was not a man of brilliant attain- 
ments or of exalted station, but he had the attributes 
of the truly great. He was a man of simple, kindly 
nature, and of a genial, cheerj' disposition; a man of 
the most intrinsic honesty and purity of character; he 
had charity for the erring ; a devout christian, he 
pitied but did not condemn the disbeliever. Though 
not possessed of large means, he gave freely, and was 
always the friend of the unfortunate ; upheld by the 
affection of his children and the love of so many whom 
he had endeavored to make happy, and firm iu the faith 
of God, he passed peacefully away. He left a memory 
which will ever remain green in the hearts of those 
who knew him. 

IMr. Jennings was a shoemaker by occupation but 
held various offices in the city and county governments. 
He served two terms (from Oct. 1842 to Oct. 1846) as 
deputy sheriff (residing at the jail) uuder George W. 
Barker and v.'as himself sheriff two terms, Oct. 1846 to 
Oct. 1850. He was infirmary director from 1861 to 
1870. He was a Mason, the lodge following his 
remains to their last resting place Feb. 'PO, 1871, the 
•'oth anniversary of the organization of the American 
I'nion Lod^c No. 1, of v/hich he was a faithful member. 


Haunah McCabe,''~ the first v.'ife of Junia Jenuings, 
was a daughter of Robert and Polly i^McCrackeii) 
McCabe, of Athens, Ohio. Polly McCraeken was a 
daughter of Rev. Alexander IMcCrackenf — a most elo- 
quent preacher. Robert McCabe and Folly McCvacLceD 
were married in Brownsville, Pa., and emigrated to 
Marietta, Ohio, where they were very prominent Isletli- 
odists. Tradition says the first Methodist sermon 
preached in Ohio was preached at their h.ome by Robert 

Eliza Ann Reck.ird,j: the second wife of Junia Jen- 
nings, was a daughter of Calvin Rickard and his second 
wife, Rhoda (Borden), widow of George Westgate. 

Her death was the result of infirmities incident to 
her advanced age, and her passing av.'ay was as peace- 
ful as had been her life. She died at the home of her 
son in Columbus, Ohio, and was buried by the side of 
her liusband in Oak Grove Cemetery, Marietta, Ohio.

Susan Reckard, wife of Jonathan Jennings, was 
well and favorably known in the community in Vv'hicli 
she resided. Not only was she a capable housewife 
and a good mother, but she was also a factor in the 
moral and religious development of the community. 
Her domestic cares did not hinder her activitj' in the 
work of the church ; indeed she was foremost in seeking 
to bring those with whom she came iu contact, into a 
better way of life ; exemplifying in her daily life those 
principles she enthusiastically advocated, she .sought to 
live the truth so that she should indeed be "a living

What has been said of his brothers is ecjusUy true 
of Henry Jennings. His life was quiet and peaceful, 
unmarked by anj' stirring events. United to a lady of 
amiable temperament and of a beautiful character, his 
domestic relations were all that could be desired. 
Realizing that "as the twig is bent, the tree is inclined," 
they reared their children in the fear of God and in the 
love of theirfellow beings. 

In his varied pursuits as a farmer, merchant and 
hotel keeper, Mr. Jennings held the respect and esteem 
of his associates, and by industry, he accumulated a 
modest competence. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Jenniugs were earnest members 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Jennings 
was for years a licensed exhorter of that body. 

His life abounded in good and noble works and 
when the time came for him to descend into the dark 
valley and shadow of death, he feared no evil, but ac- 
cepted the summons as a call to his reward from the 
Master to whom he had been a good and faithful ser-

Rlioda ^\ McKibben, the youngest child 
and the last survivor of the Tatuily of Jonathan and 
Elisabeth {Stephensoji) Jennings died in Aniboy, Blue 
Earth County, Minn. For fifty-five years she was the 
loved and loving wife of Joseph McKibben. Their 
married life was beautiful in its harmony. Their chil- 
dren, as they grew up, had before them always an ex- 
ample of domestic bliss that was the embodiment of 
peace and happiness on earth. 

When the echo of the guns fired at Fort Sumpter 
told that their country was in danger, eight stalwart 
sons received the blessings of these noble parents, and 
.rushed bravely to her defence. Mr. McKibben whose 
age caused him to be refused admission into the army, 
said : "Well, if I am too old to fight, I am not too old 
to pray,'' and every night and morn from his family 
altar arose a humble petition to the God of battles, 
I)raying that he would preserve the Union and ])ro!.ect 
the absent ones. 

When peace dawned again upon our stricken land, 
and the family once more gathered around tlie hearth- 
stone, there was one vacant chair. While their litaris 
were filled with grief for the loss of their first born, 
they th.anked the Heavenly Father that he had fallen 


in 'Jie cause of right and justice, and with meekness and 
huiuility they took up the burden laid upon them. 

In the foregoing pages we have taken the members 
of Jonathan Jennings' family individually and endeav- 
ored to show their leading characteristics. The little 
that remains to be said can be said of them collectively. 

When this family came to Ohio, but twelve years 
had elapsed since the first settlemicut had been made at 
Marietta, on the Ohio Company's Purchase. Twelve 
years of hard labor by the colonists had made but little 
impression upon the compact and almost boundless 
forest, and Jonathan Jennings and liis family found 
their borne an almost unbroken wilderness. Nearly all 
of the members of that family lived to see the forest 
disappear under the ax, and in the progress of improve- 
menl, they sav/ the rude cabins of the pioneers give 
way to more pretentious dwellings ; saw the broad river 
flowing before their doors become a highway of com- 
merce and bear upon its bosom hundreds of steam 
vessels; saw their homes and the homes of their fathers 
connected by bands of electricity ; heard the whistles 
of the locomotives echoing through the valley, and saw 
civilization spreading over all the mighty territory. 

In effecting this revolution, a revolution accom- 
plished by courage, industry and intelligence, they 
nobly bore their parts. They did not aspire to public 
positions but were willing to work hard, and content 
to earn independence and moderate fortunes by econ- 
omy, thrift, and laborious effort. Though their names 
are not exalted in history, their descendants can rejoice 
ui the fact that they fairly won a right to the proudest 
title an American ran bear : They were good citizens. 

Altliough their educational advantages were lim- 
ued, they were all possessed of good intellect which 
made them respected by their neighbors. 

Through the lives of all ran a deeply reli<;,ioiis 
vtin which was a marked characteristic. At time of 
tUc- advei't of the family into Ohio, they wore Presby- 


terians, but there being no church of that cieucmina- 
tion near, they subsequently becaine Methodists. 

And now that all have passed away, it is with a 
melancholy pleasure that we recall their stones of hon- 
orable achievements and labors of a time when the. eyes 
DOW closed in death, were bright with intelligence, and 
the strong hearts forever stilled, were beaLmg with life 
and courage. Their posterity will do well to keep 
always in sight the examples of their well spent and 
useful lives.

Capt. George H. Richards was the son of Henry 
Richards, a native of Bath, England, and Sarah Burge, 
of Bristol. Both were of Quaker parentage. The family 
moved to America when George was an infant, settling 
in Delaware, near Wilmington. When George was 
eight or nine years old, the family returned to England 
on account of the father's health, remaining there 
about a year and a half, (during which time George at- 
tended a Quaker school), then returning to New \ork 
City. Most of the time while the family remained in 
the city, he attended an academy betv/een Harlem 
and Manhattauville, receiving a fair English educatiou. 


When he was about thirteen or fcmrteen j-ears of age, 
his iather moved to Pennsylvania, whence he was sent 
to Wilmingtoii, Delaware, to attend school. While in 
Wilmington he served a regular apprenticeship at 
blaclismithing in Brnndyv/ine Village, Del. Shortly 
after becoming of age he went to New York City and 
worked a short time at machine work. In the spring of 
1839 he went to Marietta, Ohio, and followed black- 
smithing until 1842. He ironed two vessels at INIarietta 
and two at Point P!ea>ant, Va. One of the latter was a 
double decked bark, loaded at the mouth of tlie Big 
Kanawha, Va., with corn for Cork, Ireland, during the 
Irish famine. 

As a steamboat captain and engineer, he became 
well known along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. He 
was captain in the militia at Marietta for several years. 

In the spring of 1855 he removed to Buchanan, 
Michigan, where he became prominently connected 
with all matters of public interest, both officially and in 
a private way. 

Mrs. P.ichards still resides on the homestead in 
Buchanan, Michigan.

The parentage and birthplace of Jacob Jennings is 
to ns at present imknov/n. It i& a tradition in the 
family that on account of a shipAvreck hi.'; entry into 
America is not of record. f Dr. T. H. Stockton, of the 
Methodist Protestant Church, in his biographical di."-;- 
course on the life and character of Rev. Samuel Ken- 
nedy Jennings, M. D. sa^'s : "His paternal grandfather 
(Jacob Jennings, buried at Bound Brook, N. J.) was 
born in New England, the North Brittain or Scotland of 
our owu greater country, and was descended from one of 
the pilgrims who settled at Plymouth, Mass. He early 
reiiioved to New Jersey, where he became a member of 
the Presbyterian Church and T/herc for thirty years he 
filled the ofiice of Ruling Elder, being particularly di.";- 
tniguished in all his sphere as a peace-maker.'' l''rom

sources not altogether authentic, but from letters and 
proceedings of tlie conventions of the Jennings family 
in 1S48 and 1850, he is called one of the "seven 
brothers "—Joseph (1), Zebulou (2), Jacob (3), Benja- 
min (4), Jonathan (5), John (fi), and David (7). 

la the Revolutionary War he served as "Minute

"Jacob Jennings a member of Provincial Congress 
at Trenton, May 23, 1775.'' (Query: Was it this Jacob 
or his son Jacob?) [Snells' Hunterdon cf Somersel, 
page 30.] 

Rev. Samuel C. Jennings in bis " Recollections of 
Seventy Years," (page 142) says : 

"Then we spent the Rabbath with our excolleDt brother, Itev. 
John Ewing, D. D., at Clinton, Xew Jersey. Afterwards he took 
UH to Rediugton, where my Grandfather, Dr. Jacob Jenniug-^, 
had practiced medicine, and where the dust ol his wife Mary, tl;e

al.JC went to .see tiie resting place of my great-grandfather, Jacol^ 
Jennings, at Bound Brook. He died at tiie age of 701. 

"I\Iy great-gruudfather, Dr. Kennedy's, tomb has inscribed 
upon it ; 

'Died August 21, A. D., 17S7, in the 67th year of his age.' 

"It is recited by Dr. -Miller, iu the Histoiy of Dr. Rodger-,

When the war was ended and when he was over 
forty years of age, he was licensed to preach by the 
Dutch Reformed Church. He did not, however, upon 
entering the new calling, abandon the old one, but 
went about among his people as indeed the beloved 
physician, diligent in his labors for their spiritual and 
bodily health. After his ordination, he removed to 
Virginia, remaining there with his motherless children 
two years, and in 1791 removed into the bounds of Red- 
stone Presbytery. He became Pastor of Dunlap Creek. 
Fayette County, but gave a portion of his time lo 
Muddy Creek and lyittle Redstone Congregations. h\ 
1802 he was chosen the first Moderator of the Synod o! 
Pittsburg, immediately afterwards commencing the 
" Glorious Revival " during which Dr. Jennings (.-iO- 
called from his continued practice of medicine) labore.'! 
■with great acceptance in many of the churches. f-Ji'' 
venerable appearance, long white hair and solemn man- 
ner, gave weight to his utterances. " He educated four 
.sons at Cannonsburg, practiced medicine extensively, 
and ministered to two congregations, traveling to dis- 
tant congregations when he had to be helped on h;.- 
horse. His noble wife was a helpmate indeed. Afic-t 
a life of toil. Dr. Jennings died Feb. 17, 1813, worn ovt

at "Basking Ridge," New Jersey. 

From the "Story of an Old Farm," by Andrev/ D. 
Millick, Jr., page 159, we copy the following: 

"Basking Rtdge, in Bernards Township, already possessed a 
li'iurishing community with a well established Presbyterian 
Church under the charge of a Seotcli worthy, the Beverend 
Siuuuel Kennedy.* His education had been gained at Edinburgh 
I niversity, and coming to America he was, in 1751, ordained 
pastor of this congregation, which he faithfully served for thirty- 
i^ix years at a salary of one hundred and teu pounds. 

"lu addition to his ministerial duties he practiced medicine, 
and established and took charge of a classical school, wliich at- 
tiiined to great celebrity."

"Dr. vSamuel Kenned) Jennings was born in 
County, New Jersey, June (J, 1771, and died iu Lialti- 
more, Md. , Oct 19, 1854. His parentage was highly 
respectable, influential and educated. His grand-fatuev 
on his mother's side — Rev. Dr. Kennedy, of Scotti.s)i 
birth — was a man of distinguished piety and learning. 

"Under the tuition of such a preceptor (for the edu- 
cation of Dr. Jennings was under hi.s direction), it n5.'.y 
be supposed that the pupil was admirably taught. Tl.c 
old gentleman used to tell his grandson, in order to in- 
cite him to diligent stud}-, that his mother, v.-l;e;; 
young, would spin a pound of cotton a da}', and yd 
keep up with her brothers in her Latin lessons. V. >■ 
mention these things to show how favorable were h:.- 
antecedents to the securement of a thorough and 
elegant education." 

In 1790 he was graduated from Rutgers, aiv: 
studied and practiced medicine for a few years n'- 

At this period of his life, young Jennings was ?■ 
skeptic. But from a conver.satiou had by him wiih •'- 
Methodist preacher in his father's house, he was led :<■• 
give over his erroneous notions, and became an enthu- 
siastic Christian. In 1794 he became an itinerant Mi-'- 
ister in the Methodist Episcopal Church, and in !■"*' 
was ordained an Elder. 

"And such a Preacher as he was I Diifernig i- 
style and manner from all others, — purely e.rten:] '-'i"''" 


ueoufi, yet systematic, analytical, wonderfully conipre- 
heusive iu his grasp of thought, and with a diction that 
fiowed like a river, full, abundant, clear aud sparkling, 
pre-eminently practical and thoroughly evangelical, 
Dr. Jennings rose at once to the highest eminence as a 
pulpit orator. And he was great ! — great in the essen- 
tial element of true greatness; a heart instinctively 
noble in all the generosities of humanity, and intellect 
of the highest order, and heart and intellect both under 
the constant influence of tlie Spirit of holiness." 

The follov/ing anecdote V\'e give as an illustration 
of Dr. Jenning's power in his prime: 

Tn the spring of 1S18, \\hile on n, vir-it to Baltimore, T was 
iuviU'd liy a friend, Eev. James Armstrong, to accompany him to 
ilie AVilk Street jMcthodist Episcopal Churcli, to hear the great 
iJr. Jennings preach. At the time referred to there was a gracious 
revival of religion iu progress iu that station, then under the p:;s- 
loral care of Rev. John Davis. The appointment was at 11 
o'clock, Sunday morning. Although I arrived a full hour before 
the time, I found the place crowded to over-flowing, so that it 
wa* with some dillicult y tliat I could obtain a seat. The te:;t was 
taken from I Gor. 1 :21. "For after that in wisdom of God the 
world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness 
ofprcacliing to save them that believe." I was then too young 
and too imperfectly acquainted with theology to under.siaud fully 
I'lid ofcourse to appreciate the masterly manner in which he treated 
tlie subject, yet, one thing I distinctly remember, he simplified 
bis views very mucli towards the end of the sermon, reuiarkiug: 
"God, toliide pride fromnian, often uiakesuseof the most unlikely 
means to bring about his salvatiou." He then related a ciicum- 
stance which took place under his own observatiou in or near 
Lynchburg, Ya., referring to Colonel Lassals, a notorious infidel, 
wlio was converted to the truth of Christianity by means of a few 
Words si)okcu by a pious slave. ' 

After the sermon was over, Jlr. Davis, assisted by Rev. 
I'-obert Burcli, then stationed at Dighl Street, invited persons to 
ciwiio forward and join the church, when one hundred aud four 
individuals gave in their names as proiiationcrs. Such a sceiie of 
T'ligious interest I Ijave never wiiiiessed since, nor is it ai nil 
pmbable I shall ever look upon the lilce again. In the evening I 
beard preacli at Light Street. The text was I Cor. 1C:2. 
'I'lie sermon was short, not more than forty rniuulcs, but the eiiect 
>U"'n the congregation was exciting in the highesi degree. Tliat 
precious wortl '' Charity " seemed to be biiriU iiUo every heart. 


while every bosom glowed as a, furnace seven iimes heated. In 
the course of the summer Caroline Street Church was c-oniiiienc.d. 
The lot selected for the buildiug was thou a large sand hill, rtmr, 
which the Doctor addressed the largest asseiiibly ever brouglii 
together iu Baltimore for such an occasion. 

1 met Dr. Jeuuiugs a day or two before his dectrase, at (bf 
corner of Baltimore and Calvert Streets, and thought I had no' 
seen him look better for some years past. I was much surpiitoO 
iu reading Friday morning's paper to see his death announced, an.i 
that the funeral would take place at 1 o'clock. I hastened up t.> 
Dr. Owings', his devoted son-in-law, at whose liouse he died, .nud 
arrived just iu time to hear the closing remarks of that eloquent 
mini.ster, Mr. Stockton. 

As I stood by tlie coffin and gazed for the last time on ll.v- 
placid countenance of the venerable man, who, more than tiiiriy 
years ago filled my eyes and warmed my heart, the v.ords of 2iir. 
Wesley came forcibly to my mind. They were spoken wiih 
reference to the life and death of V/illiam Eduaonsou, a pio'J^ 
Quaker, from whom he differed ui:)onsome ])oiuts of doctrine an^i 
discipline: ''"WJjen I die let my sjiirit be with the spirit i^' 
William Edmonson." So I say of Dr. Jennings, thougli wi 
honestly differed xipon some points of church policy : " Whea 1 
die let my spirit be with the spirit of Samuel K. Jennings." 

Baltimore, Oct. 23, 1854. W. Hamilton. 

"For several montlis before his death, he was c.\- 
pecting his dissolution. Almost every night, when ].<: 
would retire, as his daughter, Mrs. Owings, wouic 
accompau}' him to his chamber and give him the accus- 
tomed kiss of affection as she bade him 'good nigh;,' 
he would say to her : 'Mary, my child, if you shoiilo. 
find the old man dead in the morning, remember ihi'<'- 
he was not afraid of death.' 

" 'Preciou,s in the sight of the I^ord is the death c: 
His saints.' 'Precious in the memory of the Church is 
the name of Samuel K. Jennings.'" 

The following is contributed by one who kne'-^' 
Dr. Jennings : 

Tliirty j-ears ago no of worship iu this citj' would C'lH- 
tain the congregations that assembled to hear tliis eloqui-i^' 
preacher of the gospel. His manner was all geuerou?, his ni.i:i'-'' 
solid and strictly evangelical and his extcmj>orancou'i ability ; 
remarkable, perliaps, as thai of any other man w))o ever slooil i: 
the pulpit. We lieard a brotlier once state th..t on a crrl;ii': 


oooasion, having called T>r. Jennings to the pulpit, he requested 
liini to officiate in his stead as he was unwell. After having con- 
sc-ntecl, the Doctor said, "Wliile i read a hymn, brother, select 
tlie text you intended to preach from." The brother was some- 
what surprised at such a request, but knowing T)r. Jennings, he 
did so, and after the pveliniinarios the preacher arose and with 
fvery indication of systeiii, and with his wonted .nbility and dis- 
crimination, proceeded to tlie explanation and enforcement of the 
passage, too, bj- no jneaus leading to the ordinary and rroudeu 
paths of pulpit declamation. 

But Dr. Jennings is not now what lie was thirty years ago. 
After an absence of eight years from Baltimore, he has returned a 
feeble old man. T)ie passer-by pauses on the street to notice tlae 
beading form and the feeble step of a venerable personage, whom 
he is at first at a loss to recognize, but a prolonged examination 
reveals what was ones the noble person so famiiiar to the Metho- 
dist (^opjmuiiity of this city. What changes time makes! It is 
sad to look upon such a transformation; but the sadness is 
mingled with a resjiect approaching reverence when we remember 
what he once was, while his godly life assures us what he will 
soon become. 

A few moments conversation will serve to show those who 
enjoy this privilege, that in meeting Dr. Jennings we meet a 
mind majestic, though its tenement is in ruins. We have been 
favored with repeated interviews since his return, and in each 
have discovered frequent glimpses of the great heart and intellect 
of this father in Israel. 

Dr. Jennings is eiglily-three years of age. Until two or three 
years since, he was able to practice in his profession, and occa- 
sionally to preach. But a stroke of paralysis has rendered the 
prospect of physical exertion for the future almost hopeless. 

Of his valuable labors in the cause of reform, his self sac- 
rifice and his uncompromising adherence to principle throughout 
tlie whole of that memoralile conflict, the Chui'ch is well informed. 

As we look upon him we are reminded of the exquisite lines 
of Holmes: 

They s:iy that in his prime. 
Ere the pruuijig knife of Time 

Cut him down, 
Kot a nobler man was foivuX 
By the Crier, oi; his r<>und 
Tin-oui;h the town. 

But, now, he waliis the streets. 
And he looks at all he meets, 

Sad and wan ; 
And he shakes !iis feeble head, 
That it seems r.s if lie said, 
Tiiov are gone ! 


The mo.<sy marbles rest 

On the lii)3 that he lius jjve?sed 

In their bloom ; 
Aud the waraps he loved to hear, 
Have beeu carved lor luaDy a year 

On the tomb '. 

■^Dr. Jennings was one of the prime nioveis iu 'Jie 
introducticu of ]?.}' representation iu the conferences ci 
the ]\Iethodist Church aud finally was expelled fio\n 
this connection and organized a new body known ::• 
"The j\Iethodist Protestant Church.'' He was di.stiu- 
gni&hcd as a pulpit orator and evangelist. 

Dr. Jennings was one of the founders of the Was!:- 
iuglon I\Iedical College {now extinct) aud became emi- 
nent in his profession. He removed to Alabama ir. 
1845, returned to Baltimore in 1853 and died in ll!.'.; 
city Oct. 19, 1854. 

Dr. Jennings was a remarkably handsome uiai:. 
of commanding personal appearance, and had a pecu- 
liarly rich and sonorous voice.

Rev. Samuel C. Jennings, in his "Recolkctious of 
ScvenLy Years," says: 

" >!y fnther was Dr. Ebeuezer Jenuings, who praclioed mcdi-

rv i'i\^i>ut. Wa.^hiugtou Countj- at Laucaster in 1S06. SVliile there, 
In; procured at Philadelpliia the vacoiue matter that Dr. Jeiiuer, 
of London, had disoovtred to be a preventive of small-pox. On 
liis return home lie tried it on his ehildron p.nd otliers. Having 
been elected a secoiul time to the Legislature, and beiug- beuevo- 
leul. and persevering, he started, .siifTerin;.; with the iulluenza, hav- 
itiLT especially in view tlie passage of an act of the Assembly to have 
all !he poor of the state vaccinated, gratuitously. In this he suc- 
ceeded ; but Ills clforts and exjiiisure fixefi upon him pulmonary 
consumption, in which state be returned. 

He was nomiuated as a candidate to represent his district in 
t'on;;ress; but he became more and more emaciated, so that by 
the following November, 180S, his life on earth ended, in the 326 
year of his age, leaving' his children orphans." 

riis nionnmeut iu the Cross Creek Cemetery bears the follow- 
ing inscription: "He was much esteemed as a physician, as a 
legislator, and as a Christian."

It is much to be regretted that numy of tlie facts ]i: 
the life of Obadiah Jennings, D. D., v.'ho was distin- 
guished for great natural ability, sound and jjoiishcd 
learning, genuine piety, sturdy molality and eminent 
usefulness to his da}' and race, a man upon Y>']Kim v.';-^ 
conferred the highest honors of church and college, aiul 
who attained eminence in two honored professions, aie 
now inaccessible. Such, however, is the fact; and 
while we viev/ it with regret, it but gives us a greater 
incentive to persevere in our work and rescue from 
oblivion and put on permanent record such notes of th-^ 
lives of this family as may still be obtained. Obadisl". 
Jennings was born near Baskingridge, New Jersey, Dec 
13, 1778, and died iu Nashville, Tenn., Jan. ]2, l.S;!-J 
He came v.'ith his father from New Jersey to Virgin;:! 
about th-C '3-ear 1789, the family removing to Fayette 
County, Pennsylvania, in 171-tl. 

As v,'e have said, Br. Jennings was a man of snp^'i- 
ior natural abilities, and being possessed of those po;);:- 
lar qualities which insure success, and liberally educat-c; 
in the arts and sciences, he looked to the profes.sioii o. 
the law as a proper field for the exercise of his powei!' 
After completing his course of stud> at the Canno;;.- 
burg Academy, he entered the law office of Jo'"' 
Simonlou, of Washington, Pa. , as a student, and af'-'.-:

was admitted to the bar and began the practice of l^''^ 
in Washington, Pa., about ISOO, and perhaps tlie snni'- 
year moved to Steubcnville, Ohio, v/here he was a ••^■■i'' 
cessful lawyer until 1811, Vidien he removed to '\\---'" 


iugtou, Pa., intending to continue the practice of law 
in the courts both of Pennsylvania and Ohio. 

About the time of his return to Washington, Pa., 
he joined the Presbyterian Church, and soon after was 
chosen a ruling elder of the church in that place. Kis 
success as a lawyer had been immediate, and although 
young and but a recent Kieniber of the bar which 
boasted many noted names, he soon was known as "a 
distinguished lawyer." 

But he felt another call upon him and while doubt- 
less he took broad views of lite, and would not deny 
that those who aimed at distinction might have no 
ignoble motive, yet, for him, he felt that fame and gain 
must not be the object of his life's work. He would 
make duty well performed and usefulness to mankind 
tlie guides of his life. Governed by these motives, we 
Sud him abandoning a profession in which he had not 
only the promise, but in a large measure the possession 
of success and distinction, to go into a calling which 
then, in a new country, could hold out the prospect of 
little of comfort and no luxury. He was a man right 
loyal to his convictions ; a man who lived for duty, and 
v.-as willing to follow an3'where at the command of that 
" stern, but beautiful daughter of the voice of God.'' 

In the year 1816 he was licensed to preach b}' the 
I'resbytery. He studied divinity probably at the Col- 
lege of New Jersey, now Princeton, from which he 
received his degree of Doctor of Divinity. Having 
been ordained a minister, in 1817 he accepted a call 
to the Presbyterian Church of Steubenville, Ohio, 
and continued their pastor six 5'ears. He then accepted 
a call to the Presbyterian Church in Wa.shingtou, Pa., 
and removed there in 182-3. After a pastorate of five 
years there, he accepted acnll to the Presbyterian Church 
of Nashville, Tenn., where he died Jan. 12, 18S2, and was 
there buried. He v/as at o;ie time President cf the 
Washington and Jefferson College, at Wasliington, Pa. 

Of his ministerial life we can justly say that liis 
uaiura! gilts, his bro.ul cullun^ iiis sturdy loyalty to 


duty aud his ccrdial support of all the aggiesive v,-or;-: 
of the church., brought him iuto an unsought pvou!;- 
nence. He was a progressive man, v/illing to wel- 
come new measures if they commended themselves tu 
his judgment, obeying the apostolic precept: Try o'.. 
things ; hold fast to that which is good." His learnt.i 
attainments were recognized by the bestowal of ti-.c 
degree of Doctor of Divinity upon him. His pulpit 
abilities brought him to the charge of the Presbyteriri!! 
Church of Steubenville, Ohio, then one of the racsi 
important churches of the west. 

He was a member of the Ohio Presbytery and whe:: 
the Steubenville Presbytery was formed in 1819. he wa'^ 
one of the leaders. He was at once elected a membi r 
of the standing committee on "Missions" and also of 
an educational society, auxiliary to the 
society of the Presbyterian Church, this proving thatht- 
was a man of spirit and energy and in sympathy ^'-il); 
the progressive movements upon which the churches ci 
the land were then entering. While some held aioc! 
and others busied themselves with finding objection."-, 
theoretical and practical, he and his associates enterec 
heart and soul into the work of " Missions and Educ.-.- 
tion.'' It was the day when foundations were laid a;::: 
it was the privilege and joy of Dr. Obadiah Jennings to 
help lay deep and strong, the foundations of that grea'. 
aggressive work which is the glory of the churcli »'■: 

By consulting the records of the Steubenvil'e 
Presbytery, we find that at a meeting of that body .'■'. 
Black vSprings, April 18, 1820, Dr. Jennings was cliose:. 
a Commissioner to the General Assembly. At a uicc-;- 
iug at Two Ridges, April 16, 1S22, hewas again .seJec't.'' 
to fill office. But a still greater honor v,-as in fl'^" 
for him. At the meeting of the General Assembly, t!:i

his profession in Maryland and Peiinsylvania. During

As such he was ver)' highly regarded by many churches 
of that denomination in Maryland and southeastern

military leaders in the State of Maryland in the War

in support of Washington in his later campaigns.

Jonathan Jennings was the seventh child of Dr. 
Jacob and Mary [Kennedy) Jennings. It was granti.J 
to this son to tak;e a prominent part iu the affairs of the 
nation, and to mould v^ith a master's hand the charac- 
ter and destiny of a great common-wealth. He, as all 
the children of Dr. Jacob Jennintrs, -was born in Nev.- 
Jersey. While still a child he v/as taken by his father 
to Fayette County, Pennsylvania, and it -was there, 
probably, that he received his education. After a life 
of eminent usefulness and distinct-ion, he died at 
Charleston, Indiana, in 1834. He left no childre-a. 

It is -with a feelino; of gratilication and honest price 
and also of devout gratitude that we trace the caieer cf 
this man, who, always loyal to his convictions, v;hich 
were true to Truth, played so important a part in the 
early history of tlie Northwest. He bsttlcd riuiufully 
for the cause of right and freedom, and his views on th': 
dignity of humanity were so exalted and so juist, tl::^.'. 
his conception of Freedom was as broad as humanity 
He knew that freedom is the God-given heril-Tgc ol 
every man, the birthriglu of e\'ery child of God ; aiu'1 
when greed and ambition would rob men of thi.-; lie:;- 
tage, and vvould make a commonwealth their partnc: 
in crime, Jonathan Jenning?, In;;- to his sense of justice 
and right and true to the teachings of his youth, man- 
fully opposed then, and gaining a victory for Frcedoui, 
saved a commonwealth to tiie "Truth of Man.'' 

Like all the children of Dr. Jacob Jenniug'^, Joi'-'' 

. than Jennings was fairly well educated and crlevcd .: 

profession. It is a significarit and noteworthy .'act th-'-' 

all the sons of this family -nho reached ujanhoof:. 


eutered professions. Jonathan was a lawyer. It 
appears that very ."^oon after his admission to ti>c bar he 
went to Indiana, for in 1806 we find him taking a 
prominent, indeed the leading part in the affairs of the 
Territory. He was a very young man, doubtless the 
junior of most of the attorneys and politicians with 
whom he was associated ; but his wealth of intellect 
and force of character brought him to the front and 
made him, despite his youth, the leader and represen- 
tative of the better element in the Territory. 

That the character and value of his services may be 
appreciated, it -may be well to consider the circum- 
stances in which he v/as placed. By the ordinance of 
1787, as is well known., slavery was forever prohibited 
in the great Northwest Territory, from which several 
commonwealths have been formed ; commonwealths 
which by the intelligence, morality and thrift of their 
inhabitants demonstrate the truth of the principles of 
the ordinance and reflect credit upon both the judgment 
and motives of the author of that celebrated document. 
But the principles of freedom embodied in the ordinance 
were not permitted to have undisputed supremacy. The 
"outhern portion of Indiana was largely settled by 
people from the southern states, where slavery was not 
onl)' a recognized but an approved institution. These 
people naturally v.'ished to bring their customs with 
them in their new homes. But the ordinance stood in 
the way of slavery and so they made an organized 
effort to have the ordinance repealed. It was iipon this 
issue that the campaign for Delegate to Congress was 
made in 1806. The pro-slavery party was aggressive 
and the friends of freedom became justly alarmed. 
Tliey realized tliat the destiny of tl\e future state 
depended upon that election, and diey determined to 
make a strong fight for the protection of human liberty. 
Tliey found their leader in Jonathan Jciinings, whom 
they nominated for the ofrice, and who conducted his 
campaign with so much energy and wisdom that he led 
his parly triumphantly Ic victory. 


The state was saved and the gloi}' of the victory 
was in a large degree due to this ''man of convictions,'' 
Jonathan Jennings. He served as Delegate to Congress 
until the admission of Indiana as a state, in 1S16, (beinc^- 
three times elected to Congress). Then the people, in 
recognition of his past services, his worth of charac'ccv 
and ability, elected him their first Governor. 

To him, thus, was largely intrusted the framing of 
the constitution of the new state, and of giving form 
and direction to those tendencies which determine the 
character of a common wealtli. But the people were 
not yet satisfied with the honors which they had 
bestowed upon him, and that his name and the memoiy 
of services might live in the hearts of their descendants, 
they named in his honor one of the counties in the 
state for which he had done so much and in the pros- 
perity of which he took so much manly pride. 

At length, freed from the cares and demands of 
public life, laying aside the pressing burden of civic 
duties, he retired to his home in Charleston. It ni&y 
be that he anticipated years of quiet comlort and erse 
in the rest which he had so well earned. But it was 
not to be; in the full possession of his powers and in 
the enjoyment of tlie earthly honors shov.-ered upon 
him, in the year 1834, at the age of fifty years, he was 
called to the everlasting reward of righteousness. 

" Divinely Gil'ted Man, 
Whose life in low estate 
And on a simple village greet' 

Who makes by force liis merit known 
And lives to cliiioii the golden keys, 

To mould a migljly state's decrees 
And .sbape Uie whisper of a Tin'oiie ; 

And moving Uji froia higli to highest, 
Becomes on ]''ovtuuc's erowning ;-lope

BROOKVILI.E, iNn., Nov. 30, 1894. 

The State of Indiana has tardily done honor to the 
memory of one of her earliest and most illustrious sous. 
After sixty j'ears of forgetfuluess she has raised a mon- 
ument of granite over the ashes of her first Governor, 
Jonathan Jennings. 

Governor Jennings has lain in a forgotten and un- 
marked grave for half a century, when men again began 
to remember his wonderful achievements in the early 
politics of the state, his heroic services as the first dele- 
gate to the National Congress, and his strong hand iu 
shaping and controlling the destiny of the infant 
Hoosier State. 

In 1862 an unsuccessful atvempt was made to se- 
cure an appropriation, by the Legislature of Indiana, 
for the purpose of erecting a monument to the memory 
of the first Governor ; but it was not until ten years 
later, at the last session, that the appropriation was 

The stoiiC is seven feet tall and five feet wide at the

face ; 

In Memory of 


First Governor of tb& 

State of Indhin."*. 

Born 1784. Dif (11834. 

Erected iiudei' tlie Act of 
'Ilie General A.sseuibly. 

Mr. Jennings came into prominence in Indiana as 
tlie Clerk of the territorial Legislature. He gained 
quite an acquaintance with the leading men of that 
da)', and ■.vhcn, in 1809, Indiana became entitled to a 
delegate in Congress, he was made the anti-.slavery 
candidate, and, after a hard fougiit contest, was elected. 

During this campaign the pro-slavery men tried 
every way to involve Jenuinf-s in a duel, but he a^••oided 


it. lu 1811 he was re-elected, and ap;am in 1S13 -was 
elected. On the 28th of December, 1815, Mr. Jennings 
presented a bill to Congress to enable the people to 
take the necessary steps toward statehood. Delegates 
were elected to a convention to form a State Constitn- 
tion, and Mr. Jennings was appointed as one of the 
delegates from Clark County. The Convention met iu 
Corydon ou the 10th of June, 1816, and Jonathan 
Jennings was made President. After a nineteen days' 
session, it gave to the people a Con.stitution, under 
which the State was governed for thirty-four years. 
G6v. Jennings had much to do in shaping the policy of 
the new State.' His ripe experience in matters politi- 
cal, made him the logical leader in the Couveutiou. 

On the first Monday in August, 181G, the citizens 
of Indiana voted for the State Officers under the Con- 
stitution. Jonathan Jennings was elected Governor. 
He received 5,211 votes. His competitor was Thomas 
Posey, then Territorial Governor of Indiana. The 
.slavery question was made the issue of this exciting 
caojpaign. Jennings was an anti-slavery man, and he 
won by a majority of 1,277 votes over his opponent. 
Here is an incident of this campaign: — The farm hands 
of Wm.- Blotcher were busily engaged iu chopping 
wood iu the .spar.sely settled district of Scotl County, 
when a comparatively young man walked into the 
clearing, clad in linsey, and asked I\Ir, Blotcher if he 
could speak to the wood choppers. Mr. Blotcher being 
a thrifty German, objected to having his men inter- 
rupted, but told the young man if he would wait until 
dinner time he could talk all lie wished. The young 
mau consented, took an ax and went into the wood 
with a \-im. At dinner time he .shared the lunch the 
men had with them, and passed the meal pleasant])'. 

After dinner he made known unto them that lie 
was Jonathan Jennings, a candidate for Governor. He 
made, them an eloquent speech on the issues of the 
campaign, and at election day recei\'cd the \ole of 
every man in the company. Wm. BlotcJier wa;.; ever 


afterward his devoted adlierent. It vras the Governor's 
habit to meet the people ou equal footing. He vonld 
come upon them at their barn-raisings and log-rollings, 
and was the merriest one of them all. He got hold of 
the hearts of the people. 

His neighbors and friends were ftill of joy when 
the news of his election was received, and proposed to 
give him a grand inaugural ball at his introduction into 
office. The most commodious building at their com- 
mand was the Lone Tree Tavern, a building still stand- 
ing in Charleston. Jtwas a stylish building in those 
days. There were th.ree rooms ou the first floor, and 
the portion above stairs was one large room, -which 
contained cots for the lodgers. The committee secured 
this large room in which to hold the inaugural ball. 
Fonr fiddlers furnished the music, and Governor Jen- 
nings, clad in homespun and a swallow-tail coat, his 
beautifiil wife on his arm, led the grand march Vvith the 
grace of a knight. 

The dance continued far into the night. All went 
merry as a marriage l^ell, and tlie first inaugural ball 
was a grand success. The old tavern still remains 
standing, a relic of the past. 

Gov. Jenuing."; alv/ays retained his residence on his 
farm, three miles west of Charleston. His house was 
built of hewn logs, and a long porch stood at its front. 
It was a story and a half high, and contained five 
rooms. Kere the Governor lived in comfort. He was 
foud of raising fine stock, and was the first man to 
introduce clover seed into Indiana. He had it imported 
from England in 18-32, and paid nearly forty dollars 
a bii.sliel for it, 

His first wife died during his Governorship, and on 
the lyth of October, 1827, he v/as married to Miss 
Clarissa Barbe.', of Kentucky, in th'e Lone Tree 
Tavern, where the inaugural ball had been held. His 
marriage license i.s nov. in the possession of ]\I. P. 
Alpha, cf Charleston. It was issued by John Carr, 
Clerk. The Rev. P.cason R. Hammond performed the 


ceremony. Tlicy went, iuuiiediately to the Gcvernor'.s 
farm to reside. 

The Governor was the owner of a very large ai;d 
intelligent Newfoundland dog that lie called "," 
for he had given the price of a farm for him. One da,- 
while he was playing v.'ith his pet in front of his hou?e, 
two well-dressed Koitucky gentlemen tcde up on their 
horses and asked if Governor Jennings ^v^s at liouie. 
"He is," said the Governor, who was dressed in ihe 
careless manner of a farm l;arid. "Well," sidd thenieu, 
"you take these horses to the stable and rub tberadown, 
and we'll go and see ihe Governor." And so sa}'ing, 
they went into the house. Mrs. Jennings received her 
guests with diguit}'. Thej'were prominent politiciarjs 
who had come to consult the Governor. 

Jennings had given the horses over to a servant as 
soon as the men were indoors, and hastened to the 
house. As he entered and was introduced, he said, 
with a merr)' tvfinkle in his eye, "Gentlemen, I have 
attended to your horses, now what can I do for you ?" 

His guests were dumfounded and embarrassed. 
They realized their blunder, and their eSorts to correct 
their error only increased the merriment of their 
amused host. 

Although Gov. Jennings was slovenly in his dress, 
yet he was a handsome man of commandiiig presence. 
His hair v/as light and his eyes were blue. He was a 
pleasing conversationalist, always polite and courteous. 
On the platform and stump he was a forceful and logical 
speaker, he was ready with his yjen, and carried a per- 
sonality in public that few men possessed. He ever 
refused to bow to the dictations of the politicians, and 
whatever his faults may h^.ve been, his rectitude of 
character was unquestioned.

"Samuel Kennedy Jenniugs, son of Samuel Kennedy 
Jennings, A.M., RI.D., D.D., was born in Virginia in 
1796. He moved to Baltimore, Md., at the age of twenty, 
where he commenced the studj' of medicine under 
his father. There he married Miss Elizalieth Hood 
Owings. She lived scarcely a year; had one child, 
which lived but a few montlis. He then moved to 
Alabama, where he commenced t];e practice of medi- 
cine. There he married Miss Sarah Murphy, daughter 
of Judge Wm. I\Iurphy. He resided iu yUabama quite 
a uumber of years, v;here he amassed a considerable 
fortune. From thence he moved to Austin, Texas. 
He was known but to be loved. He was one of God's 
noblest creation The poor and the rich honored and 
revered him : his ears v/ere never closed to the cry of 
the poor. It is of these golden qualities I v,'ould 
speak. To know him as a brother of the great family 
of man, was indeed to love him. His heart was a deep 
fountain of affection, generosity and honor, gushing up 
with the most spontaneous sympathies, and the warm- 
est emotions of a manly nature. This magnificence of 
heart was the index to the character of his earthl}' man- 
hood. Wisdom dictated his life, and virtue sanctions 
its liistory. His mind was a store house of wisdom, and 
yet his heart was full of love and charity to his fellov/mau. 

He joined the M. E. Church when quite a young 
man, and v/as ever an humble follower of Jesus Christ- 
After residing in Texas some years, he moved to 
Tennessee. He was a very successful and eminent 
physician. No wor,5hip was ever more devoted than 
that which he brought to the .shrine of his profession. 
He was never so exhausted as to close his ears and 
heart to the cry of the poor; and when death came to 
claim its own, he surrendered as a great and noble war- 
rior should. He died in Jackson, Tenn., July lo, 1877, 
His devoted wife met him on the banks of the surgeless 
river, Nov. 10, 1879. After the lapse of years, his 
memory is fresh and greeu in the hearts of his children 
and many friends."

"Re.v. Jacob Mead Jennings, A.M., M.D. , wa.s bom 
in New London, CamXibell County, Va., June 4, ]!<0i, 
and died iu Greenville, Ala., Oct. 1, 1872. His cailv 
boyhood was spent in L5'ucliburg and Norfolk, \'a. 
His father removed to Baltimore, Md., where Jacob 
received everj' educational advantage. He graduated 
witli high honors at the University of Maryland, and 
then began the study of medicine at the Medical 
College of Baltimore, from which institution he received 
his diploma. Like his father and grand-father, he v,as 
a line classical scholar; was also master of the F'rench 
language. Soon after his graduation from the Medical 
College and his marriage, he went to Virginia, living 
for a while near the Peaks of Otter, and afterward in 
Suiithfield, having in both places a large practice. Hav- 
ing been licensed to preach by the ilethodist Episcopal 
Church, in 1827, he also ministered to the people in 
spiritual things. 

Ill health compelled him to relinquish his work, 
and he returned to Baltimore, where, after the restora- 
tion of health, he began the practice of his profession. 
He was at one time resident physician of the I\Iarine 
Hospital, and was also connected with the medical de- 
partment of Washington University as lecturer on 
Medical Jurisprudence. 

Like his father, his work among the poor was a 
great work. Storm nor heat nor ill health never kej^t 
him from responding to the call of the needy. 

He left the M. E" Church and united with the 
iJetbodist Piotestant Church, his father having been 
one of tlie organizers of that church. In 184SI he re- 
moved to Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he established the 
school wliich afterward became the Tuscaloosa 
Female College. He then united v^ith the M. E. 
Church South, and in 18-53 joined the Alabama Confer- 
ence, serving different stations until the beginning of 
the Civil War, when he became Chaplain of the od 
Alabama Regt., and held that position until the sum- 


mer of 180)2, wliea failing- liealtli compelled him to re- 
tiiru home. He was iu Richmond at the time when 
mauy battles v/ere fought near that cit)', and he worked 
faithfully among the sick and wounded in the crowded 
hospitals, both as physician and minister. 

His intellect was of a high order and was cultivated 
by home and collegiate training and extensive reading. 
Pie was a brilliant writer, and contributed to many 
magazines and papers. The last few weeks of his life 
were given to editing a paper published in Greenville, 
Ala. He was an eloquent speaker, rising often to the 
regions of the sublime ; he was gifted with rare conver- 
sational powers, and to the day of his death was an eager 
student, thirsting alv/ays for more knov/ledge. His talent 
and love of music v>^ere great, his voice was fme and well 
cultivated, and he played upon difiereut instruments. 
N o matter how busy or how tired he was, some time of the 
twenty-four hours was given to music. It raised him 
above the every-day duties and trials of life, rested him, 
refreshed him. Ke almost literalh' died upon his 
knees, for he was praying with his family when 
stricken with paralj'sis. He lived for three days, then 
gently breathed his last and "went home," leaving to 
wife and children the rich legacy of a noble and well 
spent life.

Sauiuel Cainahau .Jennings was the son of 
Ebenezer and Mercy Chidester Jennings, and u-as born 
near Burgettstown, Washington Co., Pa., Feb. 10, 1803. 
Left an orphan at the age of fuc 5'ears, he was taken 
under the care of Rev. Jacob Jennings, ]\I. D., of Dun- 
lap's Creek, Pa., where he spent his boyhood. In 1818 he 
went to Washington, Pa., to enter the preparatory 
department of the college there. Iu 1S19 he entered the 
academy at Steubenville, O., where his uncle, Rev. 
Obadiah Jennings, D. D., was pastor, and with whose 
church he united April 20, 1820. In May, 1820, he 
became a student of Jefferson College, Canonsburgh, 
Pa., graduating in the spring of 1823. Then he visited 
his sister, Mrs. Mercer, at Cleveland, O., at that time a 
village of 800 inhabitants. While there he received an 
offer to becom.e princijial of the academy, and taught all 
the youth of the tov.'u with tlie exception of the 
smaller 5:cliolars. 

In 1821 he entered Princeton Seminary, N. J., and 
was licensed to preach the gospel by the Presbytery of 
New Brunswick, February, 1827, graduating also at the 
seminary the same year. On leaving Princeton he 
became an agent for the American liible Society, and 
formed in Ohio some thirty-nine societies for the circu- 
lation of the Word of God. In 1828 he became the 
stated supply of the First Church of Washington, Pl.., 


where his ministry v.'as greatl; ssed by a continuous 
revival through eifjht or nine ths resulting in the 

accession of some eighty persons to the mcmbershii-i of 
the Church. 

In 1S29 he became editor of the Christiati Herald^ 
the predecessor of the Presbyterian Banner. On June 24 
1829, he became pastor of the Sharon Church, and in 
1830 pastor of the Mt. Pisgah Church. On June 7th, 
1831, he was married to Miss Emma Marie Wilhelmina, 
the daughter of Philip L-. and Zelie Passavant, of 
Zelienople, Pa. In 1832 he relinquished the Christian 
Herald.^ though still continuing the publication of the 
Presbyterian Preacher for five years and two other 
small volumes. In 1837 he opened a female seminary, 
near the City of Pittsburgh. In 1842 he organized the 
Temperanceville, now the 8th Presbyterian Church, of 
Pittsburgh, Pa., and also as the result of his labors, a 
revival on Neville Island led to the organization of a 
church and the erection of a house of worship there. 
Having in 1846 four organized congregations under his 
care, it became evident that his pastoral charge was too 
large, accordingly he accepted calls from Sharon and 
Neville Island congregations for all his time and re- 
moved from Temperanceville to J.'Ioon Township, near 
Sharon Church, April, 1848. 

In 185? he resigned the church on Neville Island to 
take charge of the Valley Church in connection with 
Sharon, and in 1867 became pastor of Sharon for ail 
his time. During this j'ear an extensive revival began, 
that resulted in the ingathering of one hundred and 
eleven persons into the communion of the church. In 
June, 1879, he resigned the pastorate of Sharon church, 
after fifty years of continuous labor in that field, in 
connection with the other fields named. After his 
resignation he became, for two years, stated supplj" of 
the Riverdale Church, Shousetowu, Pa., preaching also 
for his brethern and writing for the religious papers, as 
opportunity afforded. 

Dr. Jennings as a pieaclicr was pbin, practical, 

Mrs. Emma M. W, i Passavant> Jenpjinc.s. 


scriptural and forcible. In labors he was more aburd- 
ant, havino; an extensive field, earnest to do hi.s Master's 
Will, speaking with ease and having his knowledge at 
ready command. He generally preached on the »Sabbath 
during Summer thrice and sometimes even four times 
and at all times as occasion afforded, in the of 
the sick and the aged. Possessed of a sympathetic 
nature, of some inherited laste and acquired knowledge 
of medicine, he fjcquently ministered to the diseases of 
the body as well as those of the mind and in this respect, 
also, his services were often sought and much, appi'eci- 

During his ministry of fifty-seven j^ears he performed 
an immense amount of pastoral work, and he was 
highly esteemed by his people, and his name was held 
in grateful rem.emberance. He was deeply interested 
in the progress of missions. He v.'as an ardent advocate 
of the temperance cause and was strongl}' opposed to 
human slavery. He several times represented his 
presbytery on the floor of the General Assembly, was 
choscii Moderator of the Synod of Pittsburgh and 
received the decree of Doctor of Divinity from his Alma 
j\Iater, Jefferson College, at Canuonsburg, Pa. 

After an attack of cerebro hemorrhages, lasting four 
days, he died Oct. 10, 1885, aud now his remains repose 
in vSharon Cemetery, in the midst of many of the people 
to whom he preached and for whom he labored. His 
monument bears the fitting inscription : 

"They that be v/ise shall sliiue as the brightness of tlie lirma- 
meut ; aud they that turn ruauy to righteciisncss as the stars for- 
ever and ever."— Dan. 12:3. 

Mrs. Emma Marie Wilhelmina Passavant Jennings 
was born at Zelienoxjle, Pa., March 2, 1811, aud was the 
daughter of Philip Louis aud Zelie Basse Passavant. 

The Passavant family were of Huguenot extraction, 
who left France in 1594, and settled first in Switzerland, 
and afterwards a branch of the same family went to 
Germany. From this latter branch the parents of Mrs. 


Jeiiniugs were descended, aud they came from Fraiil:- 
fort-OQ-the-]\Iain to Zelienople, in 1807. 

Airs. Jennings was carefully trained in her early 
years by an intelligent and accomplished mother, and 
received further education at the school of the Misses 
Turnbull, Baltimore, Md. She was confirmed in the 
German Lutheran Church at Zelienople, Pa., and after 
her marriage to Dr. Jennings, June 7, ISol, her mem- 
bership was transferred to the Presbyterian Church. 

She was possessed of good health and a vigorous 
constitution, of good judgment also, having a well bal- 
anced and symmetrical mind. 

She was an ideal minister's wife— active,industrious, 
prudent, careful and economical. She was a most 
worthy companion aud fitting helper to her husband. 
Earnest in doing good, interested in the welfare of 
others, kind and sympathetic toward the needy and the 
sufifering, she w-as greatly beloved by the congregations 
where she lived. 

Cheerful, amiable and unselfish, .she was the light 
and joy of her home circle, and her children will ever 
hold her in blessed remembrance. Her views of 
religion were clear, her faith was strong, her piety was 
simple, her patience was marked, her charity was 
abundant, her sincerity Vvas unquestioned, and her 
whole Christian character through grace was beautiful. 
With regard to furthering the advancement of her Re- 
deemer's kingdom, it may be said of her, "She hath 
done what she could," and her work v.'ill ever follow 
her and brigiiten her eternal reward. 

She died from the effects of a fall, in which her left 
limb was fractured, and after much suffering entered 
"the rest that remaineth for the people of God," May H, 
18SS. Her earthly tabernacle reposes beside that of 
her husband in the Sharon Church Cemetery. She 
was the beloved mother of six children, all of v.hom 
survived her.

Died Feb. 22, lSo2 uear Pittsburg, Pa. 
Bur. in Cros.s Creek Cemetery, Cross Creek, Pa. 

Jacob Jennings was the youngest child and son of 
Dr. Ebenezer and Mercy {Chidcsicr) Jennings, and v>'as 
born January 25, 1805, near Hurr;crtstown, Washington 
County, Pa. 

Left an orphan at a very early age (between three 
and four year.s), he was taken under the care of kindred 
friends whom his father designated, becoming, probably, 
a member of the family of his maternal grandmother 

At the age of ten he was placed under the care of 
his uncle, Hon. Jonathan Jennings, of Indiana. He 
graduated with honor at Washington College in 1S26, 
studied lav^' with his uncle, already mentioned, and 
w-as admitted to the practice of law in the state of 
Indiana, He had flattering prospects of success in his 
profession, but "Death who loves to blast life'5J fairest 
vi-sion," marked him foi its victim. Sitting up many 
nights attendin,^ on the sick when an epidemic pre- 
vailed, broughl oa a pulmonary affection. Though not 
at that time borne up with Christian b,.ope, yet the 
prayers of a father and mother, offered when he was a 
cliilu, were answered. After weeks of specinl convic- 
tion, God. in His great mercy, gave him a most remark- 
able deliverance, and enabled j>lm to rejoice in the Lord 
Jesus as bis Saviour. He peacefully fell asleep at the 
home of his brother, Rev. S. C. Jennings, rear Pitts- 
burg, Pa., Feb. 22, 1832, being twenty-seven years of 
age, and was btuicd beside his parents' sleeping dust at

" Wise, Henry Alexander, Governor of Virginia, 
born in Drunuuondtown, Accomack Conn i;y,Va., 3 Dec, 
1S06; d. in Riclirnond, Va., 12 Sept., 1S7G. He was 
graduated at Washington college, Pa., in 1825 studied 
law, was admitted to the bar in Winchester, Va. , in 
1828, and settled iu that year in Nashville, Tenn., but 
in 1830 returned to Accomack. In 1833 lie was elected 
to congress by the the Jackson party, and after the 
election fouglit a duel with his competitor for the of- 
iice. He was twice re-elected. In congress he went 
over to the opposition on the development of Jackson's 
bank policy, and took strong ground iu favor of slavcr-y. 


In 1857 he was second to William J. Graves, of Ken- 
tucky, in his duel with Jouathau Cilley, of Maine, in 
v;hich the latter was killed. He was a man of un- 
doubted ability, and had great influence in John Tyler's 
administration, and, says John W. Forney, 'Standing 
between the two great parties in the house, he delighted 
in his isolation and rioted in the eccentricities of his 
genius.' In 18-12 the senate rejected the nomination 
of Mr. Wise as Minister to France, but he was subse- 
quently appointed Mini.ster lo Brazil, and resided at 
Rio Janeiro from May, 1S4-J, till October, 1817. In 
1848 and 1852 he supported the democratic candidates 
for president. He was elected Governor of Virginia in 
1855, after a very vigorous canvass, directed especially 
against the ' Know-Nothings,' whose progress he did 
much to check by his vigorous oratory. His success, 
which overturned the calculations of many political 
prophets, was due in part to his accusation that the 
' Know -Nothings' were Abolitionists in disguise. 
Toward the close of his term occurred the seizure of 
Harper's Ferry by John Brown, whose execution on 2 
Dec, 1850, was one of the last acts of his administra- 
tion. (See Brown, John). In February, 1861, he was 
a member of the State convention, in which, from the 
committee on federal relations, he made a report that 
aimed at compromise, and a peaceful adjustment 
with the seceded states. After the secession of \'irginia 
lie was appointed Brigadier General in the Confederate 
Army. His force was driven out of Kanawha Valley 
by the National Troops under Gen. Jacob D. Cox, and 
at Gauley Bridge lost a large quantity of arms and 
stores. Subsequently he commanded at Roanoke 
Island, N. C, where his forces were defeated by Gen. 
Ambrose E. Burnside's expedition, his son, Obadiah J. 
Wise, being among the killed. After the war he 
resumed the practice of his profession. He published 
' vSeven Decades of the Union; Memoir of John Tyler' 
(Philadelphia, 1 872)."-[Appletou's Cyclopedia of Ameri-

Col. George Campbell Childress, at the time of his 
marriage with Rebecca Stuart Read Jennings, was a 
widower. He was a son of Hon. John Childress, one 
of the judges of Tennessee, whose family consisted of 
five sons and five daughters. Four of the daughters 
were wives of judges, one being the wife of Judge John 
Catron, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the 
United States. Mrs. James K. Polk was a cousin of 
Col. Childress. 

Col. Childress was a meuiber of the Bar of 
Tennes.see, and especially noted in criminal cases. He 
was on terms of intimate friendship with Andrew Jack- 
son when President of the United ,States, who at one 


time offered to name bim for Attorney General of tlie 
United Stales. 

The mother of Col. Childress was a danghler of 
General James Robertson, tlie founder of Nashville, 

Some of the nncles and brothers of Col. Childress 
settled in Texas v.'lien it v/as a province of IMexico. 

It was their influence, together with a large num- 
ber of other friends, who went fiom Nashville to Texas 
at that time, that led Col. Childress to cast in his lot 
among them in that state. 

He interested himself there at once in all the plans 
and efforts intended to promote the unity of the people 
for engaging in an earnest struggle for independence, 
and was a member of the convention which, in 1S3G, 
met to make a declaration of the independence of 
Texas. His name appears not onl}' as one of the sign- 
ers to the declaration which was adopted by that con- 
vention, but also as one of the committee v>'hich drafted 
the declaration for presentation to the convention for 
its adoption. 

After Texas had achieved its independence Ccl. 
Childress returned to Nashville, Tenn., where he mar- 
ried his second wife (Rebecca vStuart Read Jennings) in 
1842. About 1344 he went again to Texas, his inten- 
tion then was to remove his family there to reside per- 
manentl)', but soon after he was stricken, with fever and 
died very suddenly at Galveston. His death was a 
severe .shock to his wife ; her decline was quite rapid. 
Hoping that the milder climate of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, 
would benefit her, .she decided to go there. The change 
brought no relief and she died there in the care of her 
uncle, Dr. vSamuel K. J'ennin'^s, at the hous-s of her 
daughter, Mrs. Marrast, December 16, 1847. Befoie 
she left Nashville for the south .she gave to each of her 
two young daughters a Bible as a last parting gift to 
them and a memento of her love; iu each her nam.e as 
the ailectionate donor vv-is written by herself.

FredericV Plunier Hobson was a nian of excf;p- 
tional character ; he combined the gcutlenes.s of a wo- 
man with great firmness and courage. He had a strong, 
clear mind with a remarkable insight into human 
nature, lie had chosen the law as a profession, but early 
indications of cou.sum])tion made it necessary to live: 
an active life in the couniry. He became au excellent 
farmer and managed a large Virginia estate witli judg- 


ment and success. No kinder, wiser master could be 
found. His patience and self-denial during ten years of 
struggle with a fatal disease, and perfect resignation to 
the will of God, was an inspiration to others. He was 
named after Rev. Dr. Phnner, the distinguished Pres- 
bj'terian divine. 

Mrs. Annie J. W. Hobsou (she was baptized Ann, 
but always called Annie) is the last surviving child of 
Gov. Henry A. and Elizabeth {Jennings) Wise. When 
she was but four years old, her father married his sec- 
ond wife, Mrs. Sergeant, who was a self-sacrificing and 
true mother to them all, dying when Annie was thirteen 
years of age. Her father married in 1854 his third wife, 
a Miss Lyous, of Richmond, Va., a good, lovely woman 
of suitable age, and who has always been loved and 
cherished as a mother, and who at the piesent time 
(1899) is living with Mrs. Hobsou. 

Thelife of Annie Jennings Hobsou is a theme we can- 
not reacli. In its manifestation to the world, it has been 
marked by no extraordinary deeds ; but in cheerfully 
accepting the gravest reponsibilities of imperious duties 
and in the sublime Christian fortitude and submission 
under many and severe trials hardly to be borne, she 
lived a life too sacred for our pen to discuss. As daugh- 
ter, wife and mother, she has exemplified the nobility 
of woman, and after a life of unceasing vicissitudes, she 
is still charitably meeting the obligations which the 
misfortunes of others have im.posed upon her. As a com- 
mentary on her life and praise of her motives, we can- 
not do better than to quote her own words: "God has 
led me through the fiery path of trial and the dark 
waters of bereavement, but He has never forsaken me ; 
but has given me grace always to say: 'Thy will be 
done.' 'God is too wise to err, too loving to be unkind.' " 

Mr.<^. Hobson now resides at Ashland, Hanover 
Co.. Va.

Willipm Dexter Dowe was a sou of Stephen Dowe, 
of Laudgrove Vt., a son of Stephen Dowe, (by Abigail 
Jewett) of Hollis, New Hampshiie, son of Capt. Reuben 
Dowe, (by Ivydia Joues), who purchased in Hollis, 
about the year 1730, the tract of original forest, which 
they im]iroved as a homestead, where they afterwards 
lived and died. Their children and grand-children 
were born there, and it is still owned by a representa- 
tive of the fain.ily. 

Capt- Reuben Dowe held a lieutenant's commission 
in a company of New Hampshire troops, who took part 
in the expedition against Ticonderoga in the French 
and Indian War. He was captain of a company in Col. 
Prescott's regiment, which occupied Breed's Hill on the 
niglit of June 16, 1775, and took part in the battlf of 
the next da}'. He was the last of his company in leav- 
ing the fortifications, and received a ball in his ankle, a 
lasting memento from George HI, which made h.ini a 
cripple for life. This bullet was taken from his aukle 
that day, at the hospital in Cambridge, and was carefully 
kept by liim the remainder of his life, and at its close 
he passed it over to his sous. It has been preser\-ed as 
a souvenir by the family. 

The first ancestor of this family, who settled in 
Massachusetts, came over from Eugland prior to 1G.'^7. 
His name appears in the records of Essex County anjong 
the charter corporators of the town of Newburyport. 

The Jewetts were all of Scotch and the Joneses of 
Welsh ancestry. 

Mehctabel Hall, mother Mr. Dowe, was de- 
scended, through her father, from the earliest settlers of 
New England, who came over to these shores soon 
after the Pilgrims .settled at Plymouth. Simon Wil- 
lard and his sister Margery, who washer ancester, came 
in the same ship. Rev. Willard Hall, the first minis- 
ter of the Congregational Church, at Wcstford, Mass., 
and for fifty-two years, from 1727, was her grand-father. 
She was born in Westford, being the daugliter of Willis 
Hall and I\Iehetabel {Poole) Hall. 


Mr. Dowe wradna'ced at Dartmovilli College in TSr)5. 
He afierv/ards read law in Delaware, and was admitted 
to the bar in that state in 1 859. For a time he practiced 
his profession in vSt. Lonis, Mo.; also in Macoupin 
County, 111. 

In 18G2 he received an invitation from the Hon. 
Daniel M. Bates, in whose office he had read lav,' in 
Wilmington, Delaware, to return to Delaware and enter 
into a partnership with him in the practice of law. 
This arrangement was made, and the firm of Bates 
& Dowe, attorneys at-law, wa^^ pleasantly continued 
until the appointment of Mr. Bates as Chancellor of the 
State of Delaware. The acceptance of the office of 
Chancellor, dissolved the hrm of Bates &. Dowe in 1864.

As a historj- of John Crawford and liis times, we 
present the follo\Ying story as it was publislied in the 
Wayiiesbiirg Republican^ Jan. G, 1898. Tlie story is 
from the pen of Jennings Crawford (1506), and besides 
the story of adventure, and the side light thrown on 
pioneer days, it discloses the friendship of two rough, 
rugged scouts, and shows the reason why the given 
name, John Lynn, is continued through the families 
descended from John Crawford : 

Br.MiN/scEKCKs OF Olden Times — SrHi'Ki.sE of tiii: Scorxs. 

)3V jENNliNGS 'C:tAWro!;ii. 

In the (.-ill of tile year 1701 a report v.'as by pome ineans )>ut 
into circulatiou iu the frontier sottlenients of \Ve.siern ]'eiiu.<yl- 
vauia aad Virginia, (hat i.lie hostile Indians who liad been very 
truublesoiue to those settleuiejits for tome yearS: M'cre about to 


leave the Sauduslcy towDs aud retire to the AY«bas!i oountry for 
wiuter quiirlers, 

It was a matter of i;i'eat impcntauee to tlie fettleniculs to 
aseertaio whether or not this report ^^-as true. If true, they would 
be relieved, at least for a time, from The necessity of a slcc])kss 
vigilance in order to guard against tlu'ii- i.loody inroads. If false, 
they would understand and be prenarcd for tlie necessities of the 

'J'lie olUcers in eouimand at Foil AVlicelinf,' detailed (:i|jlit 
men from the class of soldiers tlien in tlic U. S. service, called 
spies or scouts, to perform this service. It was a mi.ssiou of great 
danger, bui these young nieu were presumed to he fitted for just 
such work. 

The names of these meu, so far as I am able to call tlieiii to 
mind, were Jacoli Wet/el (brother to Lewis,) George Bro\vn, of 
Whitely, Greene Co., Pa., John Lynn, Redstone, Fayette Co., 
Pa., John Crawford (my father), Muddy Creek, Greene Co., Pa., 
Thomas Biggs and Wm. McCullocb. Tlu^ names of the oiher tv.X/ 
I can not recall. The party started from Fort ^Vheeling in the 
moutli of December, in ihedirection of the Sandusky towns. The 
trail through the unbroken forest crossed the r^Iuskicgum River 
at or below where Coshocton now stands, then through the Tomica 
region on the M'aters of Owl Creek, passing near the spot where 
now stands the city of Alt. Veinon. 

After proceeding cautiously on this route to a point some- 
where in the Owl Creek Valley, tliey ln-eamo .-alistied that the 
Indians were in the country ; that the rejiort that tliey had gone 
ofiE to the Wabash was false. 

JNIoreover some of Ihe party (my father of llie nunilx-r ) be- 
lieved they (the scouts) had beeii discovered by the Indians, 
and that the greatest caution would be necessary to ])re\-ent a 

The oljject of the mi.ssion having been attained, tlie party uo\4- 
turned their faces homeward, and, as it afterward turned out, 
were stealthily followed by a party of Indians. 

When niglil came on they had reached a point in the liilly 
region of Tomica, about ten miles west of the Muskingum Kiver. 
The weather was very cold but no snow on the ground. 

They .selected a secluded spot in a dee), ravine lor tlieir camp- 
ing ground. There was a division among the men as to whether 
they should have fire. Those who believed that the Indians had 
di.scovered tliem opiiosed it, but was overruled by the majority. 
A fire was made. 

The regulations for watching and being relies ed in order were 
duly atten.ded to. 

]\Iy father's watch came in the iir.-i part of Ihe night. 


He (Ifscribed the niRlit as boiug very still, the moou shining 
bright, the weutlier so cold that (he trees were erackijig with the 
frost, and the ground frozen hard. 

He thought it would be impossible for an Indian to get with- 
in a hundred yards of the camp without being discovered. 

The men, excepting the one on guard for the time being, sur- 
rounded the camp fire with tlicir guns in their arms, lying with 
their feet to the fire and their heads most remote from it. 

About three o'doclv in the morning the man on guard (as he 
afterward stated), after watching for some lime, turned around to 
the light of the lire to take somellung from his liuapsaek, when 
the Indians, having with astonishing adroitness ereptupouevery 
side, within some fifteen or twenty yards, lired into the camp of 
sleep>iug men. 

Two men were killed on the spot and a third one wounded. 

Those who escaped this deadly A'olle^-, sprang up and ran for 
their lives. My father, after rurning along tlic ravine some 
distance and then up a side hill, ventured to look back, and saw, 
bj' the light of the moon, at the foot of the hill, a few yards below, 
a squad of men. In a few moments there was a sliglit report of a 
gun, and lie ran on. It seems that the wounded man, after run- 
ning as far as this spot, M'as overtaken by some of the Indians and 
turned to defend himself with liis tomahav.-k. The Indians, not 
caring to engage in a hand to linnd fight, and their guns having all 
been discharged at the tirst tire, had stopped long enough to load 
a gun to shoot the poor man down. 

Five of the men were unhurt and escaped from the Indians, 
but some had lost their moccasins and all tlieirblanketsand knap- 
sacks. Ninety miles through a howling wilderness were to be 
traveled before they could reach Wheeling Fort. There seemed 
reason to fear that the Indians nii;:ht still be follov.'ing up their 
trail, so that to shoot game was unsafe and tliey had no other 
means of procuring food. 

Their hunger was added to the other diflieullies and perils 
still surrounding them. After tliree days of toil and sufleriug the 
five men reached the Fort, in two parties, one of two and the 
other of three, neither of them having any knowledge of the 
other until they came in. Those of them who had lost their 
moccasins at the sui-prise, got their feet badly frozen. 

After a few days rest, and doctoring up their frozen leei, the 
boys determined to niak-e a trip out to the Wakiioiuica coni'.try, 
as it was then called, in sea'ch of their three lost comrades, of 
whose fate they ^verc yet not CLrtain, though they believed they 
were killed. 

Procuring some horses to ride, they made their way to the 
spot where the party had Oi-en surjirised, and found the bodies of 


the three men, two at th'> camp wl\oie they liad slept, aud the 
other at the place wlieiv? ray father looking down the hill aaw the 
squad of uien at its foot. His wouiui.s indicaied that, )ir had been 
shot a second time. 

They hurried their coiupanious in the hi'St manner they 
could near the spot wliere they fell. 

I am not able, at this late day, to stnte the na)«e.s of two of 
the men who were killed. But as to the third one, there is a little 
bit of romance couuectcd with it, (roiuance in life, by the 
way,) M'hich I trust will cause it to be remembered by all the 
Crawford eonuection for at least a generation or two yet to come. 

John Ijyun, (one of the men killed) and .Toliu Crawford (my 
father], were bosom friends. They entered the U. S. service, as 
scouts at the same time, each being about eighteen years old. 
They made an agreement at the outj^et, that ia case either one 
should fall during the war, and the oilier survive, and have a son, 
that son should bear the ijame of tlie fallen comrade. 

JolinLynn was shot tlirough the heart v.-hile lying under tlie 
same blanket with .John Crawford in that awful night surprise 
which 1 have been trying to describe. 

The defeat of the Indians by General "Wayne on the Maumee, 
in August, 1794:, put an end to the war. Tliere was no further 
need for the .scouts, and they returned to tlie puisuits of peaceful 

.John C'rawford and Salome Jennings were married April 2, 
ISni. A son was born to them May olst, 1802. 

That sou was named John Lynn Crawford, in accordance 
with the sacred pledge made twelve years before. 

This scrap of history as to the orighi of the name, witli its 
hallowed iissocialions, will, I think, be accepted by all relatives 
as a precious memorial. To some of the younger portion of thoui 
ii will jjcrhaps be new. 

I have met in past years several stories or narratives evidently 
founded upon the real historic events which I have narrated above, 
hut connected with so much of mere fiction as to render them in- 
credible and worthless. 

All the statements I have made above may be relied upon as 
substantially true. They come from tlie lips of one of tlie princi- 
jile actors, whose veracity was never called in (luestiou.

^The Magastne of IVcstern Hts/cry\ published at 
Cleveland, Ohio, commenced giving biographical 
sketches of some of the leading men of Pittsbnvgh — 
manufacturers and other prominent business- men v.itli- 
in the last half century. In this list we find our old 
friend and relative, John F. Jennings, now living on 
Lincoln Avenue, Allegheny city, in the eigliiieth jear 
of his age. As Mr. Jennings is a native of tiiis place, 
and having been very extensively known throughout 
the county, fifty odd years ago, we have taken the 
liberty of borrowing from the March number, 18SG, of 
the Magasme., the following sketch of his business life, 
especially after he became an active workei in the 
great industrial hive of the State; we fully and cheer- 
fully endorse all that the Magazine says of our old 
friend, and we hope it will be read with appreciation 
and pleasure by hundreds of our older citizens v.-ho still 
remember Mr. Jennings when a young man in their 
midst. The enterprise, self reliance and strict business 
integrity of Mr. Jennings were crowned with tiieir 
natural and legitimate results, in the acquisition of en- 

L WayiiCiburt; (Pii.) paper of April, It^il, by W. 7. K. P-lulcy, ?l1 

Jer/i^v P', (ff/n^-^-^^e^ 


larged wealtli. His '.vliole life has been a worLliy 
example to the young ineu of the country who liave 
their own way to make in the v.'orld. But read vs'hat 
the Magazine of Weslern History truthfully says of the 
subject of this sketch. 

After considerable solicitation on our part, i^lr. 
Jennings consented to our printing the following notice, 
when some other members of his family sent us the 
above electrotype likeness of that gentleman, v/hich is 
a most excellent one. 


The men who laid the foundations c{ manufactur- 
ing and commercial strength on which Pittsburgh has 
been built, are rapidly passing away, and those who re- 
main should be made to feel that the new generation 
has an appreciation of the past, and is willing to give a 
full meed of praise where it is due. John P. Jennings 
was one of this hard-working body of pioneers, aud he 
has well earned the comfort and ease in which his de- 
clining years are being spent. Kis life has been a 
useful and busy one. He was born in Waynesburg, 
Greene County, Pennsylvania, on October 28, 1807. 
His ancestors came originally from New Jersey. His 
maternal grandfather, John Flenniken, while a native 
of Pennsylvania, was for many years a citizen of North 
Carolina, where he remained all through the Revolution- 
ary War, serving gallantly as a mem.ber of that band 
that has passed into history as " General Marion's 
minute men." He was a delegate to the Mechlenburgh 
convention, v>-hich adopted the famous " Mechlenburgh 
Declaration of Independence '' of 1775, and was one of 
the signers of that immortal paper. He was a man of 
high standing, and of great inlluc-nce in the south. 
When the war was over, his wife haviug in ttie mean- 
time died, he returned to Pennsylvania, bringing with 
him two children, a son and daughter, the latter being 
afterwards the wife of Benjamiu Jennings, and. niolher 
to the subject of this sketch, (^n Mr. Flenniken's 
return to the North he was appointed one of the first 


associate iiidges of Greene County, and served v.-ith 
honor and faithfulness in th:U position. 

Mr. Jennings' paternal grandfather, Jacob Jennings, 
settled on the -west side of the Monongahela river on a 
farm. The son, Benjamin Jennings, while yet a minor, 
learned tlie trade of a carpenter, and went to Waynes- 
bnrg, the serf of Greene County, which had previonsly 
been divided from Washington Count}'. The tovvn did 
nctat ihat time contain a dozen houses. He assisted 
in building the first court house in the county. It v.-as 
constructed of hewed logs, and within it the courts 
were held until a new brick house, a very elegant one 
for the tiine, was erected. It included all the olliccs 
needed to carry on the public business, and also a verj' 
necessarj' appendage in the back woods of those days, 
a jail. The county v.-as named after General Greene, 
the bosom friend and military companion of Generals 
Washington and LaFayette — and thus Pennsylvania 
honors these three Revolutionary heroes by uamiug 
after theur three counties that touch on each other — 
Washington, Fayerte and Greene. 

When Benjamin Jennings was married he brought 
his wife to Waynesburg, but could find no house to li\'e 
in save a small one oflogs tha stood on the farm on 
which the town was laid out. He had bought two lots 
on Main street, and ^^as soon engaged in building two 
frame houses, a portion of the timber therein being cut 
from the main street of the town, and the remainder on 
what is now called the park, but was then known as the 
commons. The subject of this sketch was born during 
the progress of this work, in the little log house that 
stood on what is now Greene street. The building has 
only been demoli.?hed during the last three years, to 
make room for the progress of improvements in that 
outerprisiug town. 

Mr. Jennings' childliood and )'outh did not difier 
from that of the great majority of children. When he 
was about fifteen years of age he served for a time in a 
village store, but in a few months entered a ])rinting 


office to learu the printer's trade. As his opportunities 
for an education had been very meagre, he earnestly 
applied himself to study, attending a grammar class at 
night, and becoming an expert in that difficult science. 
After conipleting his trade he was oflered a tiosition in 
the largest general store of the town, and accepted. He 
remained tliere nearly three years, receiving the rudi- 
ments of a business education, which served him a good 
purpose in after life. By reason of close confinement 
his health began to fail, and he concluded to leave the 
store and go back to his trade. In 1830 he went to 
Ohio, and in St. Clairsville found an old office mate, 
who had learned his trade by his side, and v>'lio v/as 
none other than Colonel George W- Manypvnny, who 
afterwards became a distinguished citizen of Ohio, and 
held many important positions, state and national. Rlr. 
Manypenny had just bought a newspa])er, and he 
wished Mr. Jennings to remain with him until he should 
get his establishment in. fair running shape. He did so, 
and was there one 3'ear, wlicu he Vi'ent to Colnmbusand 
entered an ofiice wliere he gave part of his time to his 
trade arrd a part to reporting the proceedings of the 
general assembly. Mr. Jennings had one advantage 
over the majority of his craft. Plaving learned his trade 
in a country office, he was taught all branches of the 
business, while the rest, as a general thing, understood 
but one branch. He could turn his hand to all forms 
of ofiice work. There were no steam presses in those 
days, and there were but two men in the oflice who 
could run a hand press at all, and Mr. Jennings was one 
of them, and as he was an expert therein he was soon 
materially advanced in the matter of wages. He had 
made himself useful in so many ways, and had worked 
with such industry and intelligent understanding of 
what was required of him, that when he decided to leave 
he was offered the foremanship if he would remain. But 
he had other purposes in view and declined. He 
returned to St. Clairsville, where he worked until the 
next spring, and in 1833 removed lo Pittsburgh, with 


forty-five dollars in his pocket, the sum of his worldly 
wealth, where he followed his trade, and in 1S35 became 
foreman of one of the offices. 

In p-ebruary or March, 1837, Mr. Jennings v/as 
offered the position of book-keeper and general manager 
of the Eagle Cotton 'Work?, one of the largest factories 
in Allegheny, where all the factories of that section 
were located, and doing an immense business. Today 
there is not one in operation. The machinery and bus- 
iness of the Eagle Mill hsve been removed to Madison, 
Indiana. The grounds and buildings in Allegheny 
have recently been sold to be diverted to other p\ir- 
poses. Mr. Jennings remained with the Eagle six 
years. In the spring of 1843 he went into the Vvhole- 
sale grocery and produce business in connection with 
James W. Hailman and John R. Blaine, under the firm 
name of Hailman, Jennings & Company. They laid 
good foundations and were commencing to build up a 
large business, when they were overtaken by the great 
fire of 1845, and utterly ruined, losing not only what 
they had, but being left several thousand dollars in 
debt. The fire swept awaj' two-thirds of the business 
portion of the city, and would have crushed a pVice 
where the spirit of enterprise and progress was not as 
great as it has ever been in Pittsburgh. During the 
winter of that year, Mr. Hailman and Mr. Jennings 
entered into partnership with William Coleman and 
Samuel H. Hartman for the purpose of manufacturing 
steel. Blister steel was the only kind then attempted 
in Pittsburgh, and the spring steel was made from the 
blister. Mr. Jennings remained only one year with 
that firm ; matters connected with the business did not 
run smoothly, but caused the development of consider- 
able friction. He offered to sell his interest, and as 
some money had been made he was able to dispose of 
it at a good figure to a banking house. This not only 
enabled him to pay his proportion of the debt and stand 
financially square with the world once more, but left 
him a small capital in addition. 


The time was one of development and advance in 
the steel business; the product Avas about to be applied 
to a nev,' use, and there was not a mill in Pittsburgh 
prepared to make it. On his retirement from the above 
named firm, Mr. Jennings .set about raising a company 
for the manufacture of steel, and several other articles 
that Vv'ere the product of steel — spring steel, carriage 
and bugg}' springs, plow steel, etc. There had sprung 
up a great demand for steel plows, but no one had been 
able to furnish the steel. He succeeded in raising a 
good company that, before getting into operation, 
underwent some modification, and that was eventuallj' 
composed of the following gentlemen: A. M. Walling- 
ford, John F. Singer, W- K. Nimick, Ale?;ander Nimick, 
John F. Jennings, Samuel H. Harlman and Felix R. 
Brunot. The firm name taken was that of Singer, 
Hartmau & Company. Messrs. Wallingford, Nimicks 
and Brunot were the capitalists and silent partners, 
while Messrs. Singer, Hartman and Jennings operated 
the concern. Mr. Hartu!an was a practical mill man, 
and became the manager of the entire works, which 
soon became famous as the Sheffield Steel Works. The 
m^'U was constructed with a special view of adding the 
manufacture of plow steel slabs to the other lines of 
work. The slabs were run in lengths of ten to tv.'elve 
feet, and ten to fourteen inches wide, and could be made 
to any required thickness. A very large demand for 
steel immediately sprung up, and as a result of the new 
manufacture, a large number of plow shops came into 
being in the west. The steel they made was of good 
quality, and ready sale was found for it at remunerative 
rates. For over two years they had a monopoly in that 
branch of their business. Then other mills began to 
follow in their footsteps, but theSheflield had the trade, 
and it was a long time before a breach of any size had 
been made in that part of their trade. They had 
fitted up a mill expressly for rolling plow slabs, and 
when the business was slack this was used for the mak- 


ing of boiler plate and slieet-iron. The other part of 
the mill was ruriuing on various kinds of v>'ork, such as 
steel carriage and bugg}' tires, cro\vbars, sledges, picks, 
and a host of other articles. Tlie shops were running 
on springs and axles, solid box vises, and many other 
things of that character. They did at one time com- 
mence the manufacture of anvils, but the trouble of 
procuring workmen was so great, as the}' had all to be 
imported from England, that that line of business 
was soon dropped. 

The work of making steel at that day was entirely 
different from that employed at present. No account 
of present methods v/ill be attempted here, as they are 
so numerous and have been so fully described in special 
publications. But it will be of the greatest interest to 
look at the course followed in those days when America 
first commenced her growth in this great line of indus- 
try. In the course of preparation for this sketch I 
asked Mr. Jennings for a detailed description of the 
methods first pursued, and he kindly gave it to nie,and 
it is here reproduced : The plan was the old English 
process of conversion. The iron was rolled from a 
bloom of charcoal iron down to the size required, and a 
half inch thick. It was then cut to proper lengths, and 
placed in a furnace constructed for the purpose. In 
each furnace are two sarcophagi, or "pots," as the work- 
men call them. Each pot will hold fifteen to twenty 
tons. On the bottom of the pots is a laj'cr of ground 
charcoal a half inch thick, laid very evenly and 
smoothly ; then a layer of iron, bars laid perfectly 
straight and smooth, then a layer of charcoal a fourth of 
an inch thick — and so on, alternate layers of iron and 
charcoal till the pot is full ; then a thick layer of char- 
coal, and the entire top covered with a layer of moist 
cliiy two or thiee inches in thickness, to render it as 
perfectly air-proof as possible. The other pot is treated 
in precisely the same manner. The fire is beneath, and 
the pot containing the iron and charcoal is surrounded 


witli fire, the heat moderate at first, but increased by 
degrees till brought up to the standard (2000) degrees 
and is kept steadily at that point nioht and day, and 
not for a monieiit allowed to be reduced till the iron is 
converted into steel, which takes seven to ei^ht days. 
There are inserted in cacli ])ot trial bars, which are 
withdrawn one at a time wlien near the finish to ascer- 
tain when the iron is sufficiently -carbo-nized, as it is a 
matter of importance that the temperature be not too 
high or too low. When sufficiently converted the fire 
is let out, and-after a fev/ days of cooling, the top cover- 
ing is removed, which facilitates the cooliiig process. 
When sufiicieutly cool to be drawn, you will find the 
steel covered with blisters, and is then called '• blister 
steel," the fiDuudatiou of oilier steel. If it is intended 
for spring or plow steel, it is then heated and rolled 
down to the required thickness. The English 
then call it German steel, to distinguish it from cast 
steel. If for cast steel it is broken into pieces small 
enougli to be put into crucibles, sud melted in furnaces 
prepared for the purpose, and poured into a mould and 
it becomes an "ingot," and worked under hammers or 
rolls to any purpose desired. Now this was the only 
process by which steel was made when first introduced 
into Pitt.sburgh, but it is now almost entirely aban- 
doned, and other modes adopted by which steel can be 
made in a few hours by chemical process. 

Among other improvements introduced by Mr. 
Jennings was one which caused a complete revolution 
in the mode of supplying the plow-makers with steel, 
which proved to be profitable as well as satisfactory to 
both parties. Previously to this, the steel was furnished 
to plow-makers in the slabs, and they had to cut out 
the mould boards, shares, etc., by hand with cold 
chisels and sledges, avery tedious and laborious as well 
as expensive process. Mr. Jennings called upon two of 
the largest shops in Cincinnati and obtained their pat- 
terns, and proposed to cut their mould boards to .shape, 


having- coustructed shears for the purpose. By this 
meaus the plow-maker saved the price of the scraps, 
v/hich were of no vahie to ihem, as they would not bear 
transportation back to the works. He saved in freight 
on the weight of the scraps in the slab, and also in twc 
blacksmith fires,which would be no inconsiderable item, 
as the average price of coal at that lime thi-oughout the 
west was twenty to tv/euty-five cents per bushel. The 
wages of four stout men were saved also. While the new 
plan increased the profit to the works, it was also a sav- 
ing of twenty percent, to the plow-maker. Of course 
the plan was followed bj' other shops, and it soon be- 
came the general mode of furnishing steel to the piov/ 
manufacturers throughout the country. The Sheffield 
works are still in operation, and are among the largest 
concerns of the kind in the country. They have made 
many improvements, and added many new articles to 
their catalogue. 

In 1SG2 Mr. Jennings sold out his interest in these 
works, and since then has been engaged in no active 
business enterprise. But lie has by no means been an 
idler, nor allowed the fine powers with which nature 
has endowed him to run to waste. No record of his 
life, however much in outline it might be made, could 
be complete were no m.ention made of his patriotic 
course during the War of the Rebellion. His heart and 
soul were iu the Union catrse, and he was not the man 
to stand idly by and see all the work done and all the 
burden borne by others. He turned in with all the 
power and energy within him to aid in the sending of 
soldiers into the field, and his services in that direction 
were of the most marked character. His oldest son, 
Beniamin F. Jennings, was then iu the Sheffield office, 
and although only twenty-two or twenty-three years of 
age, was determined to raise a company of volunteers 
and lead them to the war. The father did not discour- 
age him, but aided him in all ways in his power, fur- 
nishing no small sums of money fronj his own pocket 


for the pa3'nient of bounties to enlist men. When a 
certain number of volunteers had been raised, the rocn 
were added to those of other companies raised in that 
way, and became company B, of the one hundred and 
fifty-fith regiment of Pennsylvania volunteer infanvry. 
Mr. B. F. Jennings went out as second lieutenant 
thereof, but earned a captaincy before coming home. 

When Lee invaded Maryland, the governor of 
Pennsylvania called for fifty tliousand emergency men. 
With other patriotic citizen.'^ all through the state, Mr. 
Jennings went to work and raised a company in Alle- 
gheny. Many of the people had allov.'cd their sons to 
enlist under the expectation that Mr. Jennings was to 
be in charge of the company, and in order to make that 
misunderstanding good, he decided lo unofficially 
accompanj' the boj's to the seat of war. He went with 
them and they reached Plagerstown just after the battle 
of Antietam. Thej' remained there two weeks, until 
after the danger of Lee's invasion of the north was at 
an end. Mr. Jennings aided the Union cause in many 
ways, and was one of General Howe's most efficient 
allies and supporters in keeping western Pennsylvania 
alive to her full duties in those trying hours. He was 
often in Washington on business connected with mili- 
tary affairs and the carrying on of the war. On one oc- 
casion there was a new call for men, and sixt^'-five were 
assigned for raising in Mr. Jennings' ward in Allegheny 
to prevent a draft. A meeting- of citizens was held and 
a committee, of which he was one, was appointed to 
procure the men. He went energetically to work, and 
the quota was soon filled at an average cost in bounties 
of one hundred and fifty dollars to each man, v/hile 
from two hundred and fifty to four hundred dollars 
were being- given elsewhere. He was of great assistance 
in raising of One Hundred days' men, and was the 
main instrument by whicli Allegheny sent five com- 
pauiesof them into the field, including liis two younger 
sous, instead of the one tliat \vasp.;;kcd for. His labors 


in this direction brought on a serious spell of sickuess. 
In all his labors he made no charge to the government, 
but in addition to his time, influence and energy, he 
gave also a great deal of money to the cause that lay so 
near his heart. He was a member of the Cit)', State and 
National Union League, and was one of its most fore- 
most workers. 

Mr. Jennings has been an honored and consistent 
member of tlie Second Presbyterian Church of Pitts- 
burgh for forty years, and served a number of years on 
the board of trustees. On several occasions when elec- 
tions for elders have been held, he has been requested 
to serve in that position, but has as steadily declined. 
He has been vice-president of the Cash Insurance Com- 
pany since its creation, and still holds that position, 
although doing little active business of any sort. He 
was married on March 29, 1836, to Elizabeth B. Fitz- 
gerald, daughter of Michael Fitzgerald, at that time a 
prominent silversmith of Pittsburgh. There were born 
to this union three sons and two daughters, all of whom, 
with the exception of one daughter who died in infancy, 
are still living. He lost his wile three years ago. 

Mr. Jennings has lived a useful and honorable life. 
In politics he is a Republican, but has never held an 
office, and has left his mark on the industries of his 
home city. The channels through which he has made 
himself felt have not brought his v.-orks conspicuously 
before the world, but none the less has he done full 
duty and been of more use than many who have made 
a stir in the world. With a clean personal record, hon- 
ored by all who know him and loved by those who 
know him best, content to have done the best the cir- 
cumstances about him would allow, he is spending the 
afternoon of life in peace, and has no fear of the 
future tov,-ard whicli his face is turned.

In conformity with the family tradition, we have 
inclnded these three names in the list of the "Seven 
Brothers." Concerning this tradition and its discus- 
sion, the reader is referred to Chapter I. 

All details of family history and names of descend- 
ants of these three are unknown to the compiler.

The original purpose of the compiler of these 
records, was to trace, as accurately as may be, the lin- 
eage of the family to which he himself belonged. But 
in tlie course of his labors towards that end, such an 
amount of information concerning the collateral and 
allied families of the Jennings name has been accumu- 
lated, that it has seemed good to preserve it in a per- 
manent form, even though incomplete and imperfect, in 
the hope that it may be found useful, though ouly by 
the way of suggestion, to anyone who may hereafter be 
able to supply the facts at present unknown to the 

Thus it is that he is enabled to present sometliing 
of the West Jersey Family; and it is not an unpleasant 
task, inasmuch as to. this family belong some who have 
been factors in forming both civic and ecclesiastic pol- 
itics in America, and whose names have found an hon- 
ored and permanent place in the history they them- 
selves largely made. 

The compiler is pleased 'to acknowledge here his 
indebtedness to Dr. John R; Stevenson, of Haddon- 
field, N. J., for the very kind and efficient help so will- 
ingly rendered, and to him is to be very largely cred- 
ited the labor of compiling and furnishing the facts 
here presented concerning the family of Samuel Jen- 
nings; and to Dr. William S. Long, of I-Iaddonfield, 
N. J., for his kind assistance in compiling the records 
of the family of Henry Jennings. 


That no complications may arise in the use of the 
index to this volume, the members of this famil)' are 
designated by consecutive numbers continued from the 
numbering of the East Jerse)' families. 

The historj' of these families and the parts they 
have taken in life v/ill fall out from the sketches of the 
various individuals mentioned in this lineage. 

There are two families whose relationship is un- 
known. If Samuel and Henry were related it was not 
nearer than cousins. The compiler has no information 
concerning any relation between them other than the 
common family name ; but because they lived at the 
same tirue and in the same countries, they are grouped 
together. Whence the heads of tiie

Samuel Jeiiiugs was born iu England and emi- 
grated from that part of Coleshill, which lies in Buck- 
inghamshire, the other part of the town lying in Hert- 
fordshire, the adjoining county. Although considerable 
research has been made, nothing is known of his pareu'.- 
age. Tlic name, variously spelled, v.'as quite common 
iuEnglaud, several families residing in Buckin>;liam- 
shire, a number of whom joined the Quakers and emi- 
grated to America.*

Samuel Jenings''" "was a man of education, stand- 
ing^, influence and prominence, and v/as a member of 
the Societ)' of Friends. In I*)?? he v.'as a minister in 
the London J.Ionthly Meeting. His cominj^ to America 
was occasioned by Edward Byllinge claiming the right 
to govern New Jersey, after having sold a large portion 
to others. The Friends, who M-ere the actual owners, 
not caring to cause a contest at that time, submitted 
quietly, and Samuel Jenings came out as his deput}' 
from his home in March, IGSO, arriving at Burlington 
in October of that year. He continued to act in that 
capacity for three years, when, in 1GS3, he was elected 
Governor for one \'ear." Having been elected by the 
Provincial Assembly, Byllinge denied his riglit to serve, 
and attempted to remove him from ofiice,T but he 
seems to have served out his term. 

"At tl:e expiration of his teim lie was sent with 
Thomas Budd to England to arrange with the propne- 
lors to have the ofuce of governor made elective. Not 
succeeding, he returned home, and in 1GS5 was elected 
a member of the West Jersey Assembly. lu 1C87 the 
'Council of Proprietors' of West Jersey was organized 
with eleven members, Sainuel Jenings' name heading 
the list. This association is still in existence. 

In 1G8P he removed to Philadelphia, and the next 
year, 1G90, v,-as appointed Receiver General of Penn- 

In 1690-3 he was justice of the quorum and judge 
of the county court. He became involved on the 
Quaker side in the controversy provoked by George 
Keith, Thomas Budd and others. Out of this contro- 
versy grew the historic pamphlet, "The Plea of the 
Innocent,'' issued by Keith and Budd, in 16^2, in which 
Jenings was charged with "being too high and imper- 
ious in worldly courts," and was called "an impudent, 
presuniptous and insolent nu;u."i

"A schism having ariseu amon" the Friends, Sam- 
uel Jenings and Thomas Duckett v/ere appointed by 
the yearly meeting in 1694 to visit Loudon and lay the 
matter before the monthly meeting in that city. The 
mission being successful, Samuel Jenings returned to 
America and took up his residence once more in 
Burlington (1697-8). 

"The provinces of East and West Jersey vvcre 
united into one — New Jersey — in 1702, and Lord Corn- 
bury v,^as appointed Governor. He selected a council 
of thirteen, one of whom was Samuel Jenings. In 
1707 he was elected a member of the Nev,- Jeisey 
Assembly and was chosen its Speaker. Here he dis- 
tinguisned himself by his firm and successful resistance 
to the arbitrary measures of Cornbury. The next year 
he was unable to attend the Assembly on account of 
illness, which terminated fatally.'' 

The inhabitants of the colony of New York- as 
well as those of Nev.' Jersey, became wearied of the mis- 
government of Cornbury and accordingly they deter- 
mined to send an appeal to Queen Anne for her to re- 
move the Governor. Samuel Jennings had the credit 
writing the address, which was forwarded to the home 
government, and by so doing he incurred the great dis- 
pleasure of Cornbury, who is reported to have .said 
"Jennings was the most impudent man he ever knew. '"^ 
However it had the desired effect, and Lord Cornbury 
was recalled in 1708, the year of Samuel Jenning's 
death. Proud, the liistorian, wrote that "Samuel Jen- 
nings was worth}' of memory, and endowed with both 
spiritual and temporal wisdom ; was suppressor of vice 
and eucourager of virtue. " He was one of those rare 
individuals in whom was concentrated a variety of 
qualifications and mental endowments, by which, under 
the sanctifying power of truth, he was made eminentlj' 
useful to his fellow-men, both in his ministerial and 
civil capacity. He did more than any of his cotcmpor- 
aries in organizing the civil government of Vvest 


Jersey-. At hi.-> death he left no sous to ])erpc-tuate his 
name, but three daughters. — S/wi/rd^s Htstory of Feii-

"His ccuutr}' residence was at Green Hill, a short 
distance from Burlington. '"^ Samuel Jenings ^\'as a 
friend of William Penn, with ■^■hom he advised con- 
cerning weighty matter.s. He Vvas a man who vigor- 
ously advocated the cause of right as he saw it, and 
strongly defended his position ■ upon the prominent 
questions of the day; thus bringing upon himself the 
seyerest denunciations of his opponents as well as the 
encomiums of his friends. To is largely to be 
attributed the dominant politics of the times, and his 
influence was on the side of risht.

when Isaac married her, v/as a widow of vSir William 
Springett, a military officer. William left one daughter 
— Gnielma Maria Springett, who afterwards was the 
first wife of William Penn. There were two children — 
William and Letiti Penn. The second wife of William 
Penn was Hannah Callowhill ; they had two sons. 
John, the only American child of William Penn, was 
born in Philadelphia, in the house that Samuel Carpen- 
ter built on Second street, corner of Norris alley. The 
second child by his second wife was Richard Penn. 
Edward Pennington was a half-brother of Guielma 
Penn ; he was a Surveyor-General of the Province of 
Pennsylvania up to the time of his death, which event 
took place in 1701, two years after his marriage, leaving 
one son — Isaac Pennington. — S/ioiird's History of Fen-

Edward Pennington was the son of Isaac Penning- 
ton, Alderman of London. The latter was, atone time, 
Lieutenant of the Tower, and subsequently Lord T\Iayor 
of I/ondon. He was one of the judges who condemned 
Charles I. to death. He married in 1G54 Mary ypyont/r) 
Springett, daughter of Sir John Proude, and widow of 
Sir William Springett. Guielma Maria Springett, 
Lady Springett's daughter by her firot hasband, was a 
half sister of Edward Pennington, and the first wife of 
Williaiu Penn. Edv/ard Pennington emigrated to

Thomas Stevenson, the second husband oi Sarah 
Jennings was born probably about 1674. A '^dced re- 
corded in Buck's County, Pennsylvania, and dated 
January 20, 1701, recites that Thomas Revell sold to 
" Thomas Stevenson, junior, of Long Island" for £500, 
1000 acres on the south side of Nesliamiuy Creel:. 
This was in Bensalem town.shiji, a short distance from 
the present lin.e of the city of Philadelphia, and near to 
the Delaware River. The succeeding year (March IC) 
he added to his possession 2, -500 acres en the sotith west 
bank of the same stream. Tliat he had not moved on 
.to this land is shown by the records of the Flushing 
Friends' JNleeting* which in 1702, states that Tb.oi-nas 
Stevenson, senior, and Thomas Stevenson, junior, had 
each a horse returned to tliem as the residtof a petition 
to Gov. Lord Cornbury, after they had been destraiued 
for the building of a church. " At a Monthly Meeting 
held at ye meeting house in Flushi ig, the 2d. 6 mo. 99, 
Thomas .Stevenson, Junior, desires a certificate from 
this meeting to friends of West New Jersey, concerning 
his orderly walking amongst us which thi.s meeting 
has granted.'' From this it would appear that he at 
first intended to locate in New Jersey, but having 
bought laud in Pennsylvania he had changed his mind, 
for at the Flushing Monthly meeting held 2d., 2 mo. 
1702, Thomas Stevenson, senior, of Newtov;n, requests 
a certificate of clearance for his son Thomas. 

Thomas Stevenson was elected a member of tlie 
Pennsylvania Assembly iu 1710, and served contin- 
uously until his death in 1719, He was likewise one of 
the eight Justices of the Peace for Bucks County. In 
the year 1712 he v/as elected a member of the Council

called Green Plill in Northampton Township, 525 acres 
as it is laid." This appears to have been Gov. Jenings' 
country home ; his small brick house with a brass 
knocker on the door, bearing the initials S. J. is still 
standing and is now attached to a newer building and 
is used as a tenant house. 

William .Stevenson v.'as elected a member of the 
Council of Proprietors of West Jersey in 1711. He also 
represented Burlington County in the first Nev.' Jersey 
Assembly, which met at Perth Amboy in 1703, after the 
union of the Provinces of East and West Jersey in the 
year previous. His Nvill is dated in Northampton 
Township, April 24, 1724, and was probated June 2d 
of that year. Eike his brother Thomas, William 
Stevenson bought large tracts of land which he sub- 
divided and sold to actual settlers for small homesteads.

John Sleven.son, hustand of ]\Iercy JeuingSj the 
youngest sou of Thomas ",i;d Elizabetli Stevenson, was 
born in Ncwlowu, L- L, hut probably removed from 
Newtown to his father's land on Doctor's Creek, 
Nottingham Township, Burlington County, N. J., some 
time after his brother William's marriage (KiS'O), for 
we find iu the minute book ol the Chesterfield meeting, 
the nearest Friends' house of worship to these lauds, 
and entry day 7 day, 1 mo., 17fl5-G, that "John vStevcn- 
son desired a clearauce on account of marriage." This 
was followed by his declaration a second time, in t)ie 
Burlington monthly meeting, C day, 3 nio., 1706, of his 
intention to marry Mercy Jenings, daughter of Samuel. 

John Stevenson took no part in public affairs, but 
remained on his plantation until the death of his wife, 
Mercy, which took place between 1720 and 1724.* His 
second marriage occurred in the latter year. The niiu- 
utes ol the meeting held at Chesterfield 1 day, S mo., 
1724, record that "Jolm Stevenson and Margaret Wood, 
both belonging to this meeting, declared tlieir intention 

*0u Novem!ier20, 1720, Mcisy Slcvouson sicns, wilh her Imslianrf Johi.. r, dcc.l lo

of taking- each other in marriage, v/liereupon this meet- 
ing appoints otir friends John Tatum and John Abbott 
to make inquir)' of his cicaraiice Irom all others on 
account of marriage, and make report to our next 
monthly meeting." 

On 5 day, 9 mo., 1724, John Stevenson a second 
time declared his intention to marry Margaret Wood. 

After his second marriage John Stevenson did not 
remain long orr Doctor's Creek. He had previouslj'^ 
sold part of his plantation, but on October 10, 1727, his 
wife Margaret joiirs him in a conveyance " to Thomas 
Betts, late of Newtown, Long Island," for "all that 
plantation whereon he now liveth on the north side of 
Doctor's Creek" bounded by land of Benjamin Rob- 
bins, Joseph Brittain, and Natlianiel Stevenson. '■'■ 

It was probably the influence of his wife's family 
that induced him to purchase one week afterward, Oc- 
tober 17, of Daniel Smith, 200 acres in Hunterdon 
County, on the west side of the road from Ouakertown 
to Ringoes, two miles south of the former village. f For 
neighbors he liad his nephew, vSamuel Stevenson, son 
of his brother Thomas, and Jacob Doughty, whose wife 
was his second cousin. While this removal from Bur- 
lington to Hunterdon County seems a trivial circuiri- 
stance, it had much to do historically with the founding 
of the first Friend's Meeting in New Jersey, north, of 
the Falls of the Delaware (Trenton). 

John Stevenson died intestate in 1744. — Dr. J. R.

Daniel Doughty, son of Jacob Doughty, a

most eccentric aud picturesque figures in earl)' colonial 
times. Francis Doughtj' was the .sen of a brewer in 
Bristol, England, and the brother-in-law of Governor 
Stone of Maryland. He was educated for the church, 
but cast in his lot with the Puritans, and emigrated to 
America. We find him located at Cohasset, now 
Taunton, Mass. Here he got into a dispute with the 
elders on the subject of infant baptism, and pressed his 
views so vehemently that he and his wife and children 
were banished. He fled to Rhode Island, and from 
thence joined one of the first Knglish Colonies that 
settled among the Dutch on Long Island. He became 
the Pastor of the little community that settled at Mezpah- 
Kill, afterwards Newtown. This settlement v/as bro- 
ken up by the Indians in 1643; the remnaut of the 
colony, with Mr. Doughty, fied to New Amsterdam, 
where he preached in the church in the Fort. He 
made a claim for the colonists' land at Mezpah-Kill as 
his own, which was di.sputed aud decided against him 
in 1G47, but he was allowed the land he had in poses- 
sion. Appealing from this decision, the Dutch 
Director, General Kieft, fined him ten guelders and 
locked him up in prison for twenty-four hours. Upon 
his release, Mr. Doughty applied for permission to go to 
Holland or the West Indies, but this was refused. He 
had accepted a call from the Congregational Churcli at 
Flushing, h- 1., where he preached during 1616 and 
1647. Here he again got into trouble by denouncing 
the authorities, so that Capt. John Underhill, who was 
then living in that town, locked the doors of the church 
against him. Mr. Douglity, leaving his three children 
behind him, in 1G48 emigrated to Maryland. There he 
appears to have changed his religion and returned to 
the English Cliurch, and became Rector of Sitting- 
bourne Parish in Virginia. While officiating here, he 
baptized, in 1G50, the\eldest sou of John Washington, 
grandfatjier of Geoige Washington. Here also he got 
into difliculties for denying the supremacy of llic King, 
contrary to the canons of the church. 

Rev. Francis Doughty had three children : Mary, 
Francis, Jr., and Elias. Elias was the grand father of 
Daniel Doughty.

"Of whom it -was snid, That iu IsaiiC shall thy wod be 
■called."— Heb. XI: 18. 

The liistory of the family- of Henry Jennings is 
especially to be noticed, because it -was through this 
branch of the Jennings name, the great effort of the 
" Isaac Jennings Association " way directed toward the 
establishing of the rights of its members as claimants 
to tiie estate of "William of Actoii." 

It is with the belief that it is the best commentary 
upon the work of the "Association'' and its expecta- 
tions, that the compiler is glad to present the state- 
ment made iu a letter from Dr. W. S. Long : 

Haddonfielk, X. J., 1 Apr., 1S99. 
W. H. Jennings, E.sq.: 

My Dear Sir— Your favor of Iftth ISfar. in regard to History of 
the Jc')iL!inf,'.s family w;i.^ received aud I take jjlea.sure in forward- 
ing the following notes on the Isaac Jennings branch— pririciiially 
located iu New Jersey. 

At various times iu the past ten years, papers, letters, (lani- 
phlets and pedigrees, etc., relating to the Jennings family, 
have been submitted to me for examination. Without entering 
into a dLscussiou of the justice of the claim of persons who are 
■descended from Isaac Jennings of Gloucester Co., !N. J., to a for- 
tune reputed to exist iu England, I will only .s.ay that in the 
pedigrees, the connecting links between Isaac Jennings and the 
famous "William the Intestate" of Aclon, Eug., so fai^ as my 
knowledge goes, are exceediugly unniliable, being constructed on a 
basis of .'^, totally devoid of support of otncial or bible 
family records or documentary evidence and have n.i; even tra- 
dition -^vith its oftime flimsy evidence to tall back upon. 

One pamphlrt purjiorting to be a History of the "Jennens" 
Estate, i)re.^:enling the jiedii'Tces of th.e V/e.^t .iersey el.umnnts and 
bearing the name of one of their atlovneys as compiler, is so full of 

358 D£sci;xcA,'';i\s oi-* samuel. 

palpable errors that, the veri(.-.-t fyrn in Geueiilotry would be able 
to distinguish them. It 's uot cieditable to the discretion, wis- 
dom or business uptitude of the ruling eleujent among these 
claimants, that they should have entrusted tlio conduct of a claim 
so important in Hie hands of agccts who had shown in their 
work and writings their gross ignorance of the c.oustrnctiv)U of 
the family pedigree. It would seem verj' esseuf ial that the pedi- 
gree should prove by good and reasonal)le evidence, the connec- 
tion of each generation witli ihe preceding, and, finally, the 
relationship of the first in America with "William of Acton.'' 

Nothing of this nature was done. "Without attempting appar- 
ently to prove the links of connection in this country, and, so fiir 
as I. can learn, without attempting a tliorough seareir in the ofiice 
of the Secretary of State at Trenton, ZST. J., for wills, deeds, etc., 
they rnshed off to England to present a claim to untold millioiis, 
for which they could show not a shadow of title other than the 
possession of a surname. They conld not show conclusively ths 
relationship of Isaac Jennings of Old Gloucester County, and 
Ileury of Salem and Philadelphia, through whom they claimed 
heirship, and until this is done aud reasonable evidence is given 
that Henry of Salem is heir-at-law or next of kin to "William of 
Acton," it is folly for the W'est .Jersey claimants to j)ursue the 
iyiu/s fattens further iu an English Court of Law. The agents 
of these claimants succeeded iu amusing aud deceiving a. large 
number of respectable but too credulous peojjle, who paid their 
assessments with becomiug regularity, and in turn were regaled 
with glowing descriptions ol great iron bound aud triple-locked 
chests iu the vaults of the Bank of England, filled with coin 
and plate, all of which were to speedily pass into their possession. 

Whether Isaac of Gloucester aud Kenry of Phila- 
delphia were related, as son to father, or indeed in auy 
way, is a problem difficult of solution. The compiler 
has treated them as father and son, but is pleased to 
present adverse testimony in the form of a recent letter 
from W. vS. Long : 

Haddoxfield, N. J., 7 Aug., 1S99. 
W. H. jE.XNixcis, Esq. : 

Mj' Dear Sir — The subject of the relationship of PTenry Jcn- 
ijings, of Piiiladelphia, aud Isaac, of Gloucester, has been the 
object of a thorough search in Philadelphia, Trenton and Wood- 
bury, where the ancient deeds aud wills bearing on tlu! subjecl; 
are to be found. The result of my labor is as follows : 

The family descended from Isaac Jennings of Gloucester 
Couuty, did not trace their origin farther back until after the voy- 
age of the jVrgoiiauts lor the golden, piize in 1-JngIau'i.- Their 


agents soou found it necossrry in cliseovcr au ancestor, aud it 
required but slight rfseaix'li to find tlie wills of Heury mid Jlar- 
garet Jeimiiigs at Trenlou. Tbeie -was uo discoverable li-aditiou 
of Henry bearing any relationship to Lsaac. He does not jiiention 
children in his will. He leaves a farm which lie bought of 
*Tliomas Graves to Isaac Jcnuing.-, and the house in which he 
Jived to "my cousiu Margaret Jennings," daughter of Isa:ic, of 
Liondon. Ko mention is made of Sarah Jennings and surely a 
daughter v.-ould take precedence over a niece. 

About ]71.5, our Isaac .lennings appeared and bought laud in 
New Jersey, about eight iiiiles from Philadelphia Avhere Henry 
died ten years before and where several families of the surname 
lived whose relationship, if any, does not appear. No record 
either in Pennsylvania or Now Jersey shows that lie had ever 
inherited laud fi'mn T-lenry or Margaret Jennings of Philadelphia. 
Outside of a common baptismal name in connection wiih a sur- 
name of frequent occurs ence, there was uo reason for associating 
Henry and Isaac as father and son until the stern necessity arose 
of finding Ihe missing link to a great treasure-trove. The inge- 
nuity of tJie Genealogists was taxed to bring Isaac of Gloucester 
one generation nearer the goal (or gold) of their hopes — and behold 
a pedigree! 

It was calculated to keep the purses of the agents and attor- 
neys well (illed — tlieir coustiluents wei'e buoyed up with hopes 
which were bound to be dashed to ground eventually, by a tk-,tiou 
which woiild have uo weight even in the lowest courts of law in 
any civilized country. 

There is uo evidence which would be accepted in ovir courts 
that Henry of Salem and Philadelphia was the father of Isaac 
whose descendants are here given.

Henry Jennings was a prominent meml^er of Salem 
I\Ionth]y Meeting of Friends, soon after its organiza- 
tion. He was the son of William and Mary Jennings, 
born the '21st of 7th month, 1642, in the County of 
Surrey, England. Henry and his wife, Margaret Jen- 
nings, embarked for America in the ship Kent, Captain 
Gregory, and lauded at New Salem 2;M of Oth month, 
1G77. In 1GS2, John Adams, son-in-law of John Fen- 
wick, sold Henry Jennings 200 acres of land. He 
likewise purchased a considerable tract of land in 
Cohansey precinct, it being near the town of Cohansey, 
(now Greenwich). Henry and his wife removed from 
Salem and located in the city of Philadelphia, about llie 
year 1700, and at that place ended their days. He was 
a tailor by trade and followed it in that city. He died 
in 1706 and made his will the year previous; and, not

There are many persons in West New Jersey who 
are said tobe descended from Henry Jennings. This 
seems to me to be probable, and I shall therefore pre- 
sent such references to him as have appeared in official 
and historical records. The following I am told by a 
former Secretary of the " Jenneus Association," was 
•certified to by Richard M. Acton, Custodian of Records 
of Salem Monthly Meeting, 8lh mo. U, J 878 : 

" Hf niy Jenuiugs, sod of ^Villial;l and Maiy, was horn 7 mo. 
21, 1042, in tlie Parish of Cleiuouddeaiie, iu County Surroy, 
Euj;lau'l, 7>Iarried 1 mo. 18, 1006, iu LolkIou, Margaret, daughter 
of Paul Bussie, of York City, Old Euglaiid. They left Englaiid for 
West ]SIew Jersey on sljip 'Kent' 2 uio. .:-, 1077, with their servant, 
Martha, da lighter of .John Ba.^set, arriving at Salem, 6 mo. 2o, 1077." 

Judge Clement, in " First Settlers in Newton 
Tov.'n.ship " p. 287, further states that Margaret Basse 
■was of the Parish of St. Bartholomew, London. 

Henry Jennings was a Friend and so far as we can 
learn a strict member of the Society. I have collected 
a few memoranda of the man while living at Salem, 
N. J., prior to his removal to the city- of Philadirlphia. 
He and his wife Margaret, frequently appear as \i\\.- 
•nesses to marriages in Salem meeting.

In ]7l."', Isaac Jcmiiugs bought land of John KnjTS 
(Executor of J.\Iargaret J.) at head of Timber Creek. 
Where this land is situate we know not. L;aac ov/ued 
land south of Haddonfield and it is believed he lived a 
short distance beyond the Phila. & Atlantic City R. R. 
on the road from Haddonfield to Clement's Ridge. His 
son Jacob, in 1784, bought the farm at Barringtou 
recentl).- sold by Burr Haines, and his father's we 
believe was not far to the soutli of this tract. 

Isaac and his wile Juditli were members of Friends' 
Meeting in Haddonfield and both we believe are buried 
in the graveyard beionging to it. 

1724 to 1727. From Gushing and Sheppard's Hist. 
of Gloucester, Salem and Cumberland Counties, page 
124, we learn that Isaac Jenniugs was Justice of tlie 
County of Gloucester during those years. 

1740, r;th mo. 14th. Under this date appears a 
minute in Haddonfield Meetings Records, which shows 
the time of his becoming a member:

vivacious mauuer and a charming personality v;hich 
created for her a wide circle of devoted friends. She 
was married three times and her last husband, to whom 
.she was promised by her parents while still a irabe, 



waited through two of her iuarriao;e ventures, and at 
last met the rev/ard of a true lover's patience.

A packet of old letters which v.'ere written between

children and grandchildren of Joseph and Judith Kaj',

and had received liber al educations. They owned a 
large tract of laud near Haddoufield, N. J., between the 
north and south branches of Cooper's Creek — part of the 
original plantation of John Kay — founder of the family 
in New Jersey. Here during part of the summer 
months they gathered at "Kay ville" for rest from the 
heat of the city, and prepared for their joiirney to some 
of the fashionable watering places of that period. 
Saratoj^a seemed to liave been the favorite, but the 
difficulties of travel by coach were so great that the. 
visits thei'e were infrequent. An old gentleman, a 
Friend, who well remembers this circle of Philadel- 
phians, tells me it was a charming one, distinguished 
for the reGnement and courtesy of its members.

In pre.senthig the records of the family of Joshua, 
the couipiler feels that the work he has attemptcci Nvill 
ue the more nearly complete e.vd the more nsefi'l. Ard. 
iirasmtich as it is the first time an effort has been 
Diade to bring into one collection, the lecortls of the 
various families of the Jenniug name, he thinks him- 
self fortunate in having received the benefls of the 
labors of others, whose kindness has permitted hii'i 
thus to attain the more comprehensive restilts. For 
what is here presenied concerning; the family of Joshua, 
much credit must be given to Abraham Gould Jen- 
nings, of Brooklyn, whose contributions to the Atiieri- 
can Family Antiquity, by Albert Welles, has been drawn 
on to the ftillest extent. Tlie compiler is largely in- 
debted also to Mr. Francis A. White, of Everett, Wash- 
ington, for the results of his labor, and the corrections 
and other matter supplemental to the history as given 
in Avierican Family Aatiqinty. From the pen of Mr. 
White we have the following: 

" For many years I have had a desire to trace the 
lineage of my mother, Mariett Jennings White, and to 
perpetuate the remembrance of her in my own family 
and the descendants of her children, I have at this 
late date prepared the following pages, with valuable 
assistance from others; audit is most agreeable to me 


to mtike Special acl:no-vvkdi.-inent to Mrs. Eliz:'.l)eth

*' The record of the birth of Joshua Jennings has 
never been found, and it is not known when he came 
to this country. From the date of his marriage it is 
reasonable to suppose that he was born previous to 
1G20, and that he came to America in one of the many 
ships loaded with imigranis, betv.een 1G30 and IGIO. 
He died in Fairfield, in IGT-'i, andhis will was filed and 
proven in that year. The first record ofhitn is in 
Hartford, Conn., as having married Mary "Williams in 

■ .Mury (Williams) Jennings after tlis death oljoshua, m;ir. (V!) Doc. Hi, IGSO.Ctrorgc 
son. of Stamford.

that towp-, J)cc. -2, 1 G47, elcvivj vetrs after tne town 
was first settled by Rev. Thoiiias Ilooker aud his cou- 
gregation, who separated from tl'.e colou}' at Cambridge, 
Mass., on accouut of his disagreement with Rev. John 
Cotton, in the Aiitinomian Coutroversy in 1G36. He 
left Hartford iu 1650 with hi.s \vife, by ship, and settled 
in Fairfield. TIjC tradition of liis family is that he 
landed first at v.-hat is now called Bridgeport and went 
to Barlow';; i'iain. He was an intelligent and industri- 
ous man, a worthy citizen, and maintained an excellent 
reputation. He died in 1675, leaving a good estate to 
his wife and children."* 

" From Joshtia Jennings, who settled i<i Fairfield, 
Conn., in 1650 or earlier, and who died in Fairfield in 
1674, have descended many families who have done 
much toward the populating of Fairfield and the adja- 
cent towns; extending the industrial arts ot peace and 
commerce, agriculture and manufactures. 

Tlie numerous descendants are traced down 
through all the Probate and Church Records of Fair- 
field, and the neighboring villages and towns. Green 
Farms, which was formerly Fairfield, West Parish, is 
composed largely of people of the name of Jennings. 
Many of the descendants of Joshua are now (1881) oc- 
cupying land set out to him when what is known in 
Green Farms as the ' long lots ' were laid out. Much 
of the property in the northern part of the town of 
Fairfield, in a section called 'Jennings Woods,' or 
properly 'Jennings Farm,' was owned by Joshua Jen- 
nings. There is not a burying-ground but has its old 
free-stone of one hundred years ago, and the white 
marble of today, to the memory of a Jennings. 

" Their name is associated witl^ thrift and prosper- 
ity; honest, iudustiiou;; and orderly lives; domt.stic in 
their habits, or fond of iiome life; retiring, not seeking 
publicity. They were also patriotic as the Records 
show, ready to risk property and life in the defence of 
their country. "t
