^ Five generations had passed away before any attempt was 
made to trace the family history and lineage. Traditions exist 
which are niore or less reliable, but after two and one third cen- 
turies, nothing can be absolutely known excepting what was re- 
corded near the times when the events occurred. The records 
made at the time will greatly aid in furnishing information con- 
cerning those who long ago passed from earth, and to these rec- 
ords reference has been had for facts concerning at least four 
generations recorded in this book. 

The records of Essex county and of the towns of Ipswich, 
Rowley, Georgetown and Methuen, all in Massachusetts, have 
been carefully searched, and all the information they furnish 
deemed worthy of preservation will be here found. 

For the first fifty-five years, nearly all the family lived in Ips- 
wich. For eighty-five years after that, most of the family lived 
in Rowley and Georgetown, while two families and their de- 
scendants lived many years in Methuen. 

But very few left Essex county before the close of the war of 
the revolution. At that time the family had increased in num- 
bers considerably and sought and found new homes in other parts 
of Massachusetts and in New Hampshire and Vermont, and 
twenty years later. in Maine and Nova Scotia. 

At the present time the family is greatly scattered, being found 
in at least five New England states, and in New York, NeAV Jer- 
sey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, 
Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, California and per- 
haps some other states. It is not known that any of the family 
ever made a permanent settlement in a slave state in which slav- 
ery existed, excepting in one instance. If any one of them has 
claimed to hold another human being as his chattel, it has not 
come to the knowledge of the writer. 

Our early ancestors were men of character, standing and influ- 
ence, industrious and frugal, willing and able to sustain them- 
selves and rear their families for usefulness. The same charac- 
teristics have to a great extent marked their posterity. No 
family has made better citizens than the descendants of Moses 
Pengry. Trained as most of them have been to habits of in- 
dustry, frugality and uprightness, descended from puritan ances- 


try, and embracing much of their strictness, they have been 
law abiding, and ready to contribute of their property and influ- 
ence to pi'omote the general welfare. 

In only one instance has any one of the name been tried for 
felony, and in that case the respondent was- honorably acquitted 
by a verdict of a jury of his country. 

The law reports do not contain the name as a party litigant 
for neai'ly two centuries, and up to the present time it will be 
found that in most instances they have secured their rights with- 
out appealing to the courts to settle them. 

They have decided opinions upon political questions of impor- 
tance, and exercise the right of speech and of suffrage, but none 
of them have made politics their business nor held office excej^t 
by the spontaneous call of the people. 

Those who have lived to manhood or womanhood have gen- 
erally become heads of families, and have contributed their share 
of the country's defenders. 

In the French war, the war of the revolution, the second war 
wdth Great Britain and the war for sustaining the unity of the 
nation and the authority of the United States government, they 
furnished their share of those "who took the tented field, and en- 
dured the hardships of war, and poured out their blood and gave 
up their lives for their country and nation. Before the war of 
the rebellion they entertained divers political views, but when 
the tug of war came thej were all patriots, were all for sustain- 
ing the authority of the nation forcibly, if necessary. None of 
them rejoiced at rebel victories, or mourned for their defeat. 

The knowledge the writer had of the family before commencing 
this work and the information obtained in preparing it, combined, 
lead him to a feeling of just pride in his ancestry and kinsfolk, 
and although the work may prove to him a pecuniary loss, he 
will be in some measure compensated by the pleasure of an ac- 
quaintance witli the family. 

When, about seven years ago, he entertained a purpose to col- 
lect the history of the family, he did not know of another person 
who was interested in it. He soon, however, found encourage- 
ment from others, which tended to cheer him while pursuing his 
inquiries under difficulties. Among the earliest who took an 
interest were Rev. Dr. John F. Pingry of Elizabeth, N. J., and 
Thomas P. Pingree, Esq., a prominent lawyer of Pittsfield, Mass. 
They have aided me greatly in obtaining the information which 
has enabled me to prepare and send out the work. My acknowl- 
edgements are also due to Miss Lucy W. Tenney of Rowley, 
Mass., Mrs. Sarah P. Peabody of Strath am, N. H., Mrs. Betsey 
Pmgry of Hartland, Vt., Edmund P. Pingree and his daughter 
Lizzie A. Pingree of Denmark, Me., Bradbury C. A. Pingree of 
Norway, Me., Parkman Pingree of Parkman, Me., Rev. Andrew 
nd Dr. David Pingree both of Pingree Grove, 111., David Pingree 
a Salem, Mass., Luther F. Pingree of Portland, Me., Benjamin 


B. Pingree of Rowley, Mass., Caroline P. Frost of Petersham, 
Mass., Hon. N. W. Hazen of Andover, Mass., Mrs. Rebecca Web- 
ster of Briclgewater, N. H., Nathan P. Dodge of Council Bluffs, 
Iowa, Wm. W. Pingree of Chicago, 111., True Pingry of Oniro, 
Wis., and a person (a lady, I think, who did not give her name) 
who furnished me a valuable record of the descendants of Daniel 
Pingree, and especially to Mrs. Mary A. Burnham of Ayer, Mass., 
who furnished me family records, and preserved and lent me 
ancient papers, without which I would not have commenced the 
work. After commencing my researches I was surprised to find- 
what the name originally was. So far as I now recollect, the 
first knowledge I had of it was obtained by the autograph sig- 
natui-e of the second Aaron to a deed made in 1713, a copy of 
which is inserted in this work, and afterwards I was informed by 
Tho"hias P. Pingree of Pittsfield, Mass., that in examining Essex 
county records at Salem, he found a record of Aaron Pengry's 
will, He afterwards furnished me a copy of the will in which 
was the name of Moses Pengry as a witness. From this copy 
and many other ancient papers I am led to think that persons 
bearing the name for the first two generations uniformly spelled 
it Pengry. The first departure from that orthography that has 
come to my knowledge, was in the case of my great-grandfather, 
Aaron, who added an " e " at the end making it Pengrye. I have 
no certain information that any other person of the name so 
spelled it. Since that time the spelling has been greatly diverse 
with a strong tendency for the last eighty or ninety years to end 
with double e. I have endeavored in the body of the work to 
spell each person's name as he spelled it himself, so far as I could 
ascertain, I have found at least one ancient name that I cannot 
classify. Wm. J. Pingree has furnished me from the New Eng- 
land Historical and Genealogical Register Vol. 7, page 79 or 359 
the name of Wm. Pengry whose age was 22, in 1666. This is 
all I know of him. I tliiiik I have the names of the children of 
Moses Pengry, and therefore think he may have been a son of 
the first Aaron, and that he died before 1684 when Aaron made 
his will. If that were so, Aaron had a former wife (which is 
quite probable) of whom I have no account. 

One who has had no experience in collecting and arranging 
family records, can have but little idea of the difficulties and 
labor of the task. Many letters remain unanswered, sometimes 
repeated solicitations have brought a reply, sometimes not. Fre- 
quently letters giving information have been illegible, or unin- 
telligible. I have never known a genealogical record that had 
not many mistakes and I cannot expect this will be singular in 
that respect. Persons finding mistakes will confer a favor by 
giving information. Corrections may and should be preserved, 
so that in case of a future enlarged and improved edition, a more 
accurate and valuable worji may obtained. 


With this work, containing such records for two hundred and 
forty years as have been accessible, for a foundation a good work 
may hereafter be made. 

I would have been pleased to have been furnished with many 
more biographical sketches. No doubt many might have been 
written which would be valuable. I have had personal acquaint- 
ance with very few of the family, and have not felt myself com- 
petent to furnish sketches of them. Nearly all contained in 
the work have been furnished me. The book I send out is prin- 
cipally statistical, containing names and dates so far as I have 
obtained them, and showing how each is related to the others. 
Perhai^s future researches will discover the lost link in the family 
of the second and third Moses Pengrys. 

Whether James Pingry of Lyme, N. H., and George Pingry 
of Bennington, Vt., were sons or grandsons of Moses of the third 
generation, and where the family were from 1699 to 1764 may 
be made to appear hereafter. 

It is quite probable that the third Moses, or his son or sons, 
lived for a time in Tolland, Conn., but the town records do not 
show it. 

In this work I have undertaken only to look up and arrange 
the family in America. The origin of Aaron and Moses would 
be an interesting study, and efforts in that direction have been 
put forth, thus far with no satisfactory result. 

It is generally understood in the family that they came from 
England to Ipswich, Mass., probably from near London. The 
fact that Moses and Aaron and the sons of Moses allied them- 
selves by marriage with good families, and that Moses took a 
leading position in the civil government and in the church tends 
to show that they were regarded not as foreigners, but as citizens. 

After considerable investigation it is ascertained there has been 
within forty years in England one man named Pingree and one 
named Pengree. Whether any of the name were left there after 
the imigration of Aaron and Moses is uncertain. The name 
most like it is the French name Pingre. That name has existed 
in France for some four or five centuries, perhaps longer. It is 
said to have originated at Amiens. There have been noblemen 
of the name as far back as it has been traced. One person of 
the name, Alexandre Gui Pingre, was distinguished as an astron- 
omer. He is said to have been born at Paris in 1711, and died 
1796. A Count of the name has been travelling in America the 
present year, 1881. 

Rev. Mr. Wood of Scitnate, Mass., has become interested in 
looking up the origin of the family, desiring if possible, to show 
that the American family are descended from the French family. 
So far he has not succeeded, but is hopeful that he may do so, or 
at least ascertain the origin of the Pingree family. 

However flattering it might be to u^to show our descent from 


a noble family, we must be content at present with such esteem 
as we deserve on account of what we now are. 

I invited information upon the subject of religious and political 
preferences, and have obtained it in a few cases. My information 
upon that subject has been so limited that I have not to any great 
extent introduced it into the book. 

Some have desired I should delay publishing the book hoping 
to obtain more full information, especially as to our transatlantic 
ancestors and kindred. Others have been earnest for its speedy 
publication. Some who earnestly desired to see the book have 
left the world without seeing it. 

Had I the prospect of many years of life and ability to prose- 
cute the work it might make a difference with me, but having 
arrived at an age nearer four score years than three score and ten 
I am admonished that what I do must be done quickly. 


The small raised figures at the end of a name, mark the gener- 
ation to which the name belongs. The sign -{- points to a con- 
tinuation of the family to be found in its proper place in the book. 
The figures in parentheses are consecutive membei's to which 
reference is had in the body of the work and in the indexes. The 
Roman numerals show the number of persons in the family, mostly 
in the order of birth, but not always. A dash ( — ) signifies some- 
thing to be supplied ; b. stands for born; m. stands for married; 
d. stands for died or daughter. 



There are some biographical sketches and obituary noticss 
which, having been received too late to insert in their proper 
place, are inserted out of place. 

I have also added an appendix, as follows:

Was in Ipswich, Mass. as early as April 1641, as appears by the 
record of a deed from Barnabas Ilorton to Moses Peugry, dated 
the 12th day of the first month, 1641, to which Aaron was a wit- 
ness. In 1648, he subscribed 3^ towards Major Denison's salary. 
Major Daniel Denison was deputy to the General Court from 
Ipswich that year. In 1654, Aaron Ping.ry owned a house lot near 
John Brewer, Mark Quilter and others. This was probably in the 
north or northwest part of Ipswich, as Aug. 10, 1662, he bought 
of John and Sarah Gage of Rowley, some marsh land near said 
Quilter's which is said to be in the north part of Ipswich; and 
May 81, 1671, Aaron Pengry husbandman, bought of Thomas and 
Johanna a dwelling house and \\ acre at the northwest part of 
Ipswich. The 13th day, 7th month 1673, Aaron Pengry bought 
land of James Shute near Samuel Bishop, Philip Fowler and 
Robert Lord. 

Aaron Pengry m. Jennet, wndow of Robert Starkweather, 
Robert Starkweather d. before Nov. 4, 1674. She was b. about 
1622, and survived her second husband. 

Aaron Pengry made his will May 4, 1684, which was probated, 
Nov. 17, 1696. 

The following is a copy of his will, from which it may be infer- 
red that he left no issue. 

"In the name of God Amen. I Aaron Pengry being weak of 
body yet of sound understanding as formerly ; doe make & or- 
daine this to bee ray last will and testament as followeth: 

Impr. I committ may soul into the hands of God who gave it 
and my body to decent buriall in hopes of a happy and blessed 
Resurrection through the power and strength of my blessed Lord 
and Saviour Jesus Christ and as for my outward estate which 
God has given me I dispose of it in the manner following. 

Impr. To my beloved wife I give and bequeath the movable 
estate I received with her when I married to her to be at her dis- 
pose during her natural life and at her death : Also I give her all 
my estate for her use and benefit while she liveth; unless it please 
lier to marry again and then it is to be to the parties I have here- 
after bequeathed it to, only ten pounds wliich my executors shall 


pay her out of ray moveable estate ; fifty shillings unto ray wife 
her son Jno, Starkweather; fourty shillings to Sarah Branscomb. 

It. My will is and I hereby bequeath unto the three sons of 
ray brother Moses Penry, viz", to my cousin Moses, Aaron and 
John according to the rate of thirty pounds each, and to ray 
brother Moses Pengry his daughters at the rate of twenty pounds 
each, with this proviso that my estate being equally valued will 
amount to such a sum to each person named when my debts are 
payed and what my wife shall leave when what I have bequeathed 
to her shall be Improved for the end given ; but if my estate reall 
and personall shall not amount to soe much to my cousins then 
there shall be an equal deduction from each of the six persons 
named and if it shall amount to more; then the adition shall be 
made to each according to the proportion I have given to ray six 
cousins, and upon the decease of any of the six the proportion 
given to the p^^son shall be divided equally amongst the children 
of such p^'ty deceased." 

Further my will is and I hereby appoynt ray three cousins before 
raentioned vizt, Moses, Aaron and John Pengry my executors to 
this my last will and testament to desire my beloved brother 
Moses Pengry and loving friend Nehemiah Jewett to be my over-

Moses Pengry. The earliest information obtained in 
relation to Moses Pengry is contained in a deed to 
him of real estate, dated the twelfth day of the first 
month 1641. 

The early settlers of New England commenced the 
year March 25th, until 1760., so that the date of the 
<3eed would be by subsequent reckoning until 1752, 
April 5, or if we carry the calendar forward eleven 
days for new style April 16th. It is probable that 
Moses and Aaron Pengry were both of Ipswich as 
■early as 1640, perhaps a few years earlier. 

Moses m. Abigail d. of Robert Clement, who is said 
by Savage to have come from London to Haverhill, 
Mass., as early as 1642, bringing many children with 
him, no less than nine of whom are named in his will. 
Mr. Clement was representative of the town of Haver- 
hill in the General Court of Mass. from 1647 to 1653, 
seven years. 

In his will he names Moses Pingree husband of his 
-daughter Abigail. Ipswich records show that in 1641., 
Moses Pengry was one of the list of commoners. In 
1648, he was paid 4 shillings for killing a fox. The 
same year he subscribed three shillings toward Major 
D«nison's salary. In 1650 Moses Pengry received a 
grant of land 40 acres beyond Mr. Hubbard's farm 
rear to Wenham line. In 1653, Moses Pengry paid 68 
for pasturing two cows on the north side of the river. 
In 1654 he was one of the selectmen. In 1656 Dea. 
Pengry is assessed by the selectmen 4 pounds 5s as a 
spinner. In 1659 Moses Pengry has liberty to fell two 
white oaks. In Felt's history of Ipswich it is repre- 
sented on the 12th page that the earliest date in which 
Moses Pingrey's name appears on the records is 1642 
and that of Aaron in 1648, but this is evidently a mis- 

On page 98 of Felt's History of Ipswich is the fol- 
lowing: — 

"Saltworks 1652," "Granted to Moses Pengry a 
parcel of land by the ware house below Obadiah 
Wood's fence, to set up his salt pans and works and 
fence in his woods; also liberty to fell wood out of the 
swamp near the town for his use," 

On page 170 of the same book, "1696 Jan, 2, Moses 
Pengry died aged 86. His wife Lydia died January 
16th, 1676. He was of Ipswich in 1642. Set up salt- 
works here in 1652, was selectman and often in town 
business, was Deputy to the General Court in 1665, and 
was deacon in the first church. He lived long and 
usefuHy on earth as one preparing for a heritage in

From the Haverhill, Ilass. Gazette, Oct. IS, 1S71. 
There died at Georgetown the 30th ult. a remarkable person, who 
seemed to come down from a former generation, and that beyond 
the last. On the same day of the year when she entered this life, 


Mrs. Lydia, widow of Nathan Phillips, departed from it, at the 
advanced age of ninety-seven years. Her maiden name was Pin- 
gry. She was grandmother of Gen. Grenville M. Dodge, of 
Council Blaifs, Iowa, who is among the most distinguished citizens 
of the great West. 

She was remarkable for the clearness of her understanding, for 
the decision of character without the possession of which any 
other virtue and attainment may be in vain. 

Many instances are still remembered, in which she displayed 
these traits. There is one which for its connection with the pub- 
lic interest, and for the instructive example and the lesson which 
it conveys, should not be forgotten. In the early stages of the 
Temperance Reformation, after she had signed her own name, and 
those of her children of a sufficient age to understand the trans- 
action had done the same, the over-zealous advocate, ambitious for 
the apparent success of the cause, and to swell tlie catalogue of 
those whom his labors had secured to it, pressed that the names 
should be added of those younger still. But she at once refused 
her consent, resisted his solicitation, and would not permit it to be 
done, saying that these names carried with them the false pretense 
that assent had been given by persons who for the want of suita- 
ble intelligence could not give it properly and effectually, and who 
could afford no real support. 

' Who can say how much good was thus done by keeping the 
cause pure, and by her refusal to sacrifice in it what alone gives 
value to any cause, truth ? It is certain she rendered to it the 
highest possible service. The act required for its performance the 
presence of mind, clearness of discernment and promptitude, 
which in the greatest affairs makes of men heroes. And it is from 
the exhibition of traits like this in the present organization of so- 
ciety, oftener than from the man, that the virtues of the people, 
if they are continued, must be derived. 

The lives and virtues of her own children illustrate the value 
of an education from such a source as her training and example 

She made an early profession of her faith in Christianity, and 
through her long life abstained from what its precepts and spirit 
forbid, and did the deeds which it enjoins, while she enjoyed the 
comforts and was adorned by the graces which even here are 
shared by the humblest followers of the Saviour.

engaged in farming. Subsequently he removed to Council 
Bluffs, Iowa, where he was appointed Register of the U. S. 
Land Office in 1867, which he held till the time of his death, 
Dec. 23, 1871. His widow still resides at Council Bluffs.

Grenville M. Dodge, has distinguished himself as a civil engi- 
neer, and as an officer in the war of the Rebellion. He entered 
the Military Utiiversity at Norwich, Vt., in 1847, and completed 
his course of education under Capt. Partridge. In 1851 he re- 
moved to Illinois and participated in the construction of the Chi- 
cago and Rock Island Railroad. In 1853 he was appointed assis* 
tant engineer of the Mississippi & Missouri Railroad in Iowa, now 
called Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad. In 1855, he was 
engaged in opening a farm with his father and brother in Nebraska. 
Driven from that by the Indians he settled in Council Bluffs, Iowa, 
and for several years ens^asfed in eno-ineerintj, bankino- and real 
estate business. He was active and influential in advancing the 
interests of that city. 

At the breaking out of the Rebellion he was sent by the Gov- 
ernor of Iowa to Washington to arrano;e for the arming and 
equipment of the Iowa troops. He returned and raised the fourth 
Iowa Infantry Regiment, of which he was commissioned as Colonel, 
and also raised the second Iowa Battery ,reporting with both to Gen. 
Fremont at St. Louis, and joined the army of the Southwest. He 
bore a prominent part in the famous battle of Pea Ridge, where 
the rebel power was broken in Missouri and North Arkansas. He 
had three horses shot under him and was severely wounded, and 
for his gallantry was made Brigadier General at the request of 
Major General Halleck. 

Alter recovering from his wounds he was assigned to the com- 
mand of the district of Columbus, Kentucky. 

In 1862, immediately after the battle of Corinth, he was appoint- 
ed to command the second division of the army of the Tennessee 
ill the district organized and commanded by Gen. Grant. 

Gen. Dodge was soon afterwards assigned to the command of 
the district of Corinth. 


In the spring of 186y his men were occupied in driving back the 
forces of Gens. Forrest and Koddy and other rebels, and harassing 
the rear of Gen. Bragg's army. He also oi'ganized and equipped 
large numbers of loyal white Alabamians and colored troops. — 
On July 5, 1863, he was appointed to command the left wing of 
the 16lh Army Corps, and joined Gen. Sherman in his march to 
Chattanooga, and wintered with his men on the line of the Nash- 
ville & Decatur railroad. In the spring of 1864 lie was entrusted 
with the advance of the Army of the Teiniesee in the Atlanta 
campaign. For his brave and faithful services in this campaign 
he was made Major General by the government at Washington. 
When the confederates under Gen. Hood made the fierce attack 
under which Gen. McPherson fell mortally wounded, Gen. Dodge's 
corps bore the brunt of the encounter, and through his skill and 
intrepidity, rescued the army of the Tennesee, and turned the tide 
of battle, capturing 8 flags and a very large number of prisoners. 
The corps was in all the battles in the march to Atlanta and lost 
more in proportion to its size in killed and wounded than any one 
of that army. 

Durino- the siege of Atlanta Gen. Dodge was again wounded, 
receiving a gun shot in the forehead while he was m a rifle pit on the 
skirmish line sujjerintending an advance; this was on the 19th of 
Aug. 1864, As soon as he was again fit for duty, he reported and 
was assigned by President Lincoln to the Department of Missouri, 
where he relieved Gen. Rosecranz. The National troops in Mis- 
souri had become quite demoralized, and the State overrun by 
guerillas. Gen. Dodge brought order out of anarchy. At the 
same time Kansas and Utah were merged into his command, ad- 
ding greatly to his cares and responsibilities. He received the 
surrender of 4000 of Gen, Kirby Smith's army in Arkansas and 
of Jeff Thompson with 8000 in Missouri. 

The war being closed. Gen. Dodge's command was changed to 
include the Indian Country, embracing Kansas, Nebraska, Color- 
ado, Western Dakotah, Montana and Utah. 

In June 1866 he was at his own request relieved from further 
military duty. His resignation having been accepted, he was ap- 
pointed chief engineer of the Union Pacific Railroad. 

For a long time he had given much attention to the contem- 
plated enterprise, making important surveys and taking counsel 
of President Lincoln and other leading men of the nation. He 
was very active and influential in laying out the route and for- 
warding the work. While away from home in July, 1866, he was 
nominated for Congress by the Republicans of Western Iowa and 
elected over a popular competitor by 5000 majority. In the 
House of Representatives on the Committee on Military Afiairs 
he gave special attention to the re-organization of the army and 
defence of the border against Indians. He declined a renomina- 
tion, and returned to the plains and mountains to push on the Pa- 
cific Railroad, supervising its relations with the government, see- 


ing the law was strictly adhered to, and that the work was well 
done. After the completion of the Union Pacific Railroad in 
1868, he became chief engineer of the Southern Pacific, now Texas 
& Pacific Railroad, having charge of the survey and construction. 
Since then he has been engaged in the management of the Union 
Pacific and other Western Railroads, with his home in Council 
Bluifs, but spending most of his time in New York. 

Nathan T. Dodge, the younger brother, went to Nebraska with 
his parents in 1855, and for one year endured the hardships of 
frontier life. In 1856 he Avent to Council Bluffs, where he has 
since resided, engaged in Banking and Real Estate business, in the 
enjoyment of health and prosperity, and using his influence, tal- 
ents and property in promoting the interests of the religious, edu- 
cational and benevolent institutions of the State.

Obituary Notice, loritten by 3Irs. N. W. Hazen of Andover, Mass. 
Died at Wilmot, N. H, June 19, 1849, Mrs. Molly Cass, aged 
85. She was a native of that part of Rowley, now Georgetown, 
Mass. Her maiden name was Pingree. She was aunt to the Messrs. 


D. & T. P. Pingree of Salem, Mass., and bore, by marriage, the 
same relation to Gen. Lewis Cass of Michigan. 

More than sixty years since, upon her marriage she removed to 
the vicinity of the place where she died, which was then far into 
the midst of a dense, wide and nearly unbroken wilderness. Here 
her husband had raised his log house, and made his clearing in the 
forest. She reared a large family of children, and has left numer- 
ous descendants. She lived to see the mountain region of Kear- 
sarge, Avhich^she entered a wilderness, by a footpath and on horse- 
back, a populous district, and the steamcar rushing across its val- 
leys and the bases of its hills. 

The energy and jieiseverance of her character suited her to be 
the companion of a " first settler." She never resigned her habits 
of active industry, but chose to devote the latest ilays of her life 
to useful and often painful toil. She possessed a mind of uncom- 
mon activity and vigor. Her memory was unimpaired, and she 
retained an extensive knowledge of the genealogies of the ancient 
families in the northern part of Essex County. She was always 
cheerful, and in all her trials she was supported by the faith and 
hopes of Christianity. In every scene she maintained a dignity 
and composure fitted to the Christian profession which many years 
since she adopted and ever adorned.

The following obituary notice of his first wife ap- 
peared in the Watchman aud Reflector, July 1856 : 


'^ Died in South Groton, 28th ult., Mrs. Eunice, wife 
of Dea. John Pingry, 50,.an highly esteemed member 
of the Baptist church. So Christlike in heart, in life 
and in death, as to leave no doubt but she was a 
Christian, and has gone to heaven." 

In the same paper, Nov. 1860: "Died in South 
Groton, on Thursday, Nov. 1, Dea. John Pingry, 61. 
A correspondent writing us respecting- this devoted 
servant of God^ says: " He was a man of energy and 
liberality." Some remarks that have come to my 
ears since his death show something of the man. A 
little girl from his neighborhood says, " I cannot go 
to meeting any more, for I shall not have Dea. Pingry 
to carry me." A sister of the church and neighbor 
of tlie Deacon's said, " I can't stop now to commun- 
ion, for there is no Deacon Pingry to carry me 
home." Her husband is not a member of the church. 
Another sister, a neighbor too, and much tried for 
years with an intemperate husband, said : " We lost 
our nursing mother when sister Pingry died, and 
now we have lost our nursing father." A brother of 
the same neighborhood, said : "We shall miss him; 
wicked men were afraid of him.' Another neighbor at 
Pingryville said: "There were none of us who did 
not sometimes need to go to him for a word of coun- 
sel." He was a friend to the poor, a terror to evil 
doers. The good honored him ; the bad cursed him. 
He was at one time the chief support of the Baptist 
cause in this village. To the last he was liberal in 
his contributions. In religious meetings he always 
bore an acceptable part. He anticipated death, and 
looked for a home above. This is his record. What 
better could a man have? "The good honored him."

(J'erkins) Pingree. 
(224) I. David." 


The name of one is now in order whose life and character merit, 
and will probably receive elsewhere a more full relation than can 
be given here. 

David Pixgree, son of Asa Pingree and Annar Perkins his 
wife, was born Dec. 31, 1795, on the farm known as the "Pingree 
Place," situated in that part of Rowley since incorporated George- 
town. He was carried to Maine when his father removed thither 
with his family. Mr. Pingree was among the first settlers of the 
now popular and flourishing town of Bridgton. He built a saw 
and a grist mill before clearing away the forest for a farm. 

The early employment of David was in the care of the mills. 
Soon as he became bodily able the whole charge was devolved 
upon him. His father was much from home. His interest in his 
mills did not'suffer from his absence. The conduct of his son so 
engaged the confidence of the customers that it was talked of 
among them. Young as he was, he had a clear and established 
reputation for honesty and exactness. He had then never been 
taugjit arithmetic; yet by some process of his own he measui-ed 
and computed correctly the quantity and value of the lumber 
which he often had occasion to deliver. Thus here were developed, 
and perhaps out of the necessities of his condition were implanted 
the qualities of mind and character which distinguished him in 
the later periods of his life. 

At the age of eighteen years he returned with his father's family 
to Rowley. His maternal uncle, Thomas Perkins* of Topsfield, 
had secured the title to the "Pingree Place." The family of Asa 
Pingree were given the possession of it, with the stock and 
implements proper to a farm. 

*The connection of this gentleman with the family name whose records arc here traced 
is so important that some account of him seems due. He was born in Toiisliold, Mass., 
on the farm where he made his last residence. He went to sea as a coinuion sailor, was 
captured in the war of the Revolution, and was carried prisoner to the ^\■est Indies. He 
was permitted to labor, and wlieu released and Icaviui;- the i)i>rt where he had been 
detained, his earnings, in the shape i>f a hogshead id' sugar, when being raised from the 
liifhter to the vessel in M'hich it was to l)e slupiied. fell liciween tlie lighter and vessel into 
the ocean. Not discouraged, he began a new career df industry and enteriirise, in which 
lie amassed great riches. The loss of health compelleil bun t<i retire fr.>m liusiness. He 
died a Liachelor. David Pingree had inscribed on marble this delineation of his character : 


The whole was put into the charge of David, whose manage- 
ment of the property was closely inspected by his beneficent 

The conduct of the farm was satisfactory, but it did not afford 
the only test to which the capacity and disposition of David were 
subjected. He was furnished with money for the business of a 
drover, and was sent to Maine for the purchase of cattle to be 
driven to the Boston market. At its close the business was 
judged to be well done, and satisfactory accounts of it were 

"The Pingree Place" had many claims upon the affections of 
David Pingree. 

It was first occupied as a farm by his ancestors. All the build- 
ings upon it were erected by them. They had never been in any 
other occupancy. 

When the grandfather of David died upon it, Capt. Pertins 
bought it for the use of David's parents and their family. It 
was thus associated in the tenderest manner with the memories 
of their great benefactor. It had already a venerable connection 
with the family name. As soon as David had the ability he per- 
mitted no reasonable opportunity for adding adjoining territory 
to pass unimproved. Some such purchases were made when he 
was pressed for money for other purposes. At the time of his 
death it embraced over VOO acres, a large portion of which was 
woodland. The soil of the farm was not naturally fertile ; the 
buildings only suc'h as the place necessarily required. It has now 
passed out of the family name into other hands, havirig been 
purchased for that purpose by parties who have since cut off the 
wood and timber in which its chief value consisted. 

After the farm, its cares and labors, came the school. He 
entered Atkinson Academy in 1818. His teaeher, Mr. Vose, was 
much distinguished in his profession. Pie removed to the charge 
of the Academy at Hampton, N. H., whither Mr. Pingree accom- 
panied him. Such was the modesty and propriety of the 
demeanor of his pupil that the low grade of his studies at his 
advanced age did not impair respect for him. 

In Memory of 


An eminent Merchant. 

His Industry, Temperance and Enterprise 

Raised him from Poverty to immense Wealtli, 

Which he enjoyed without Pride 

Or Ostentation, and dispensed with Justice 

And JJcnevoloiice. He was diligent and 

Eaithlid in IJusiness, pure in his Life and 

Conversation; of a sound and vigorous Mind; 

And of an Integrity and Fortitude which 

Neither Prosperity nor Adversity could 

Sliake or Corrupt. 

He was an affectionate Son, and a kind Relative. 

He was a Cliristian, above sectarian Prejudice; 

And a man above Fear and viitliout Reproach. 

He was born in Topstield, 

April 2, 1758, and 

Died Nov. '24, 1S30. 


Out of his attendance at school in Atkinson arose an event 
which gave a color to the whole after life of Mr, Pingree. 

Having passed without failure all tlie tests to which his faithful 
monitor thought it requisite to subject him, he had now arrived 
at the ultimate end proposed by them, his entrance into mercan- 
tile life at Salem. He began in the counting-room of Michael 
Shepard, Esq., himself an emineut merchant, and confidential 
agent of Thomas Perkins in the management of his estate. 

The commerce of Salem for many years held a distinguished 
place among the ports of the country. Its merchants opened 
and had long carried on nearly the whole trade between the 
United States and the East Indies. These and other similar 
enterprises had given them wealth and inspired them with a 
spirit of adventure. Their voyages were not mere competitions 
in some beaten track, but often extended to new and hitherto 
unvisited ports, and to harbors whose names were written for the 
first time in the owner's orders to the captain of the vessel. The 
generation of merchants then in activity was composed mainly of 
those who had grown old in such enquiries and pursuits. Their 
genius for discovery had been aroused in their youth; it had 
stimulated their earliest aspirations, and guided and influenced 
their whole lives. They were full of the knowledge gained from 
masters and supercargoes, among whom it was a part of duty to 
secure such information. 

This youth from the country was brought into rivalry with 
persons so qualified and accomplished in commercial pursuits. 
How long will he sustain himself? He knows not how to plan a 
voyage, or how to make selections to suit the business of any 
port, or what to seek or expect as a return cargo. 

He learned from Mr. Shepaixl the modes and forms of business 
and trade. He was at the same time engaged in the sale, on 
commission, of flour, grain and provisions on account of southern 
dealers. In this time he had an interest in two small vessels 
trading between South America and Salem. His position brought 
him into a practical acquaintance with trade and the elements of 
commerce. Intei'course with merchants furnished him with their 
ideas, their judgments, and modes of thinking an<i reasoning. — 
How he availed himself of these advantages is shown when the 
increase of his means enabled him to enter upon his real com- 
mercial career. 

The success of David Pingree in the line of life for which he 
had been so many years silently but constantly preparing him, 
became the absorbing interest of Capt. Perkins. When his pat- 
ronage of his nephew was avowed, he removed from Topsfield to 
Salem for observation and counsel. He died, as already stated, 
in 1830. By his will, after providing for other relatives, he made 
David residuary legatee, and thus heir to about one-half of the 
whole estate. With such resources at his command, Mr. Pingree 
proceeded to enlarge his commei'cial o^jerations. The space 


which can here be afforded does not admit of detail; a single 
instance must suffice. 

Tlie latest geographical authorities of the coast north of Zan- 
zibar in 1830 were three centuries old. So late as 1822 to 1826 
two ships of the British navy were sent by the government on 
voyages of discovery to the eastern coast of Africa. In 1835 two 
vessels of the same navy, the Lever and the Barracouta, performed 
voyages of discovery to Africa and Arabia. 

An early adventure by Mr. Pingree was the loading and des- 
patch of a vessel to Zanzibar. But few American vessels had 
previously visited that port. The reigning Sultan claimed domin- 
ion over 3000 miles of sea coast. He was an enlightened ruler. 
His reign will form an era in the civilization of his countr}'. The 
Sultan saw at once the benefit that would result to himself from 
encouraging foreign commerce. Upon the opening of trade 
between the two nations, he adopted a tariff favoring Americans. 
He signaled his regard for Mr. Pingree by sending to him the 
gift of two Arabian horses in charge of two of his subjects. 

In some of the voyages made to the country portions of the 
retui-n cargo were reshipped to England. It was stated in the 
Edinburgh Review that the merchants of London did not know 
what was the place of their produce, and could not account for 
their being found in American bottoms. 

Among the importations of these voyages were large quantities 
of ivory. This was in part sold to a manufacturer, in Connect- 
icut, of articles made of this material, on such terms as greatly 
eidarged the profits to which they had been accustomed. These 
customers gratefully acknowledged their obligations to the liber- 
ality of Mr. Pingree by the gift of a heavy ivory cane made 
from a single tooth, bearing an inscription highly honorable to 

His commercial operations at d'fferent times embraced voyages 
and shipments to various ports in the West Indies; in South 
America, to Cayenne, Kio Grande, Montevideo, and other ports; 
on the west coast of Africa, to the Cape de Verde Islands, Goree, 
Sierra Leone and points further south; on the east coast of Africa, 
to Madagascar and Zanzibar; to the Arabian ports, Aden and 
Muscat; to Canton in China, from which place he made large 
importations of teas in return for Mexican silver coin; to Batavia, 
Bombay, Manila, and other East Indian ports. 

He owned at one time between four and five thousand tons of 

There is no doubt that the study of orders under which his 
vessels sailed would furnish interesting materials towards a his- 
tory of American commerce. When he entered upon his career 
he resolved to retire from it when he became fifty years old. — 
W^hen he carried this resolution into effect it excited the regret 
of all classes, and especially of the mercantile community. 

Capt. Perkins held to the old time prejudice against banks. 


Hence little of his wealth was invested in their shares, Mr. 
Pingree early discovered the many advantages arising from having 
the control of banking facilities. In this view he proposed a new 
bank in Salem. This led to the establishment of the "Nanmkeag 
Bank," incorporated in 1832, with a capital of 1200,000, increased 
in 1836 to $500,000. He was its president during his life. This 
corporation has always been prosperous, and has hitherto enjoyed 
the full confidence of the public. It was almost a necessity to 
its founder. The new aveiuies of trade, and its new subjects 
wliich he introduced, brought fresh applicants for credit, to some 
of whom loans in some form were indispensable, and when obtained 
operated as an encouragement, and led to providing the means of 
repayment. The bank was an aid to all these parties. It pro- 
moted equally domestic trade and foreign commerce. 

For another preserver of its population and weakh, and a 
stimulus to its industry, Salem is mainly indebted to Mr. Pingree 
in his lead and labors in the establishment of the Naumkeag 
factory. He treated the undertaking to build this mill as if it 
was his own individual enterprise, and all others treated it in the 
same manner. Its entire dii-ection was with him. Its complete- 
ness, its adaptation and its thoroughness were all secured by his 
ovei'sight. Its details, numerous as they were, and the sum of 
the whole of them, were suited to his capacity. His attention 
could contain and his judgment guide every part of the construc- 
tion. The whole of the vast structure, and all its contents and 
their operation were clearly in his mind long before they were 
combined in the edifice. The confidence felt in his ability pre- 
vented controversy or obstruction, and secured all needed capital. 
He began and ended, its President. It is no injustice to any one 
to say that, successful as it was, his control led to its prosperity; 
yet it was all new woi-k to him. He came to Salem an advocate 
for free trade. He knew nothing of cotton or woolen factories. 
His learning and his practice in them were the same operation. 

The early recollections of Mr. Pingree led him at all times to 
give some attention to the timber lands of Maine. These had 
been for some years the subject of ignorant and therefore of rash 
speculations,. which had now ceased. Their titles were left to 
repose in the hands where they happened to be held. They were 
no longer the subject of general inquiry. There were sellers, but 
few buyers. Perhaps it would be safe to say these had wholly 
disappeared. There were many sellers from necessity; they were 
such as had bought merely to sell, and had not the means to 
enable them to hold. The titles had become intricate and com- 
plicated. The record sometimes even described premises which 
had no existence. Still there w^as embraced here a great and 
substantial value; but it was to be eliminated out of chaos. 

Here was a field for the exercise of mind, of skill and patience, 
as well as of great caution. Necessity for everj^ kind of enquiry 
was presented. As already suggested, it was first to be made 


certain that any such premises existed. Then to distinguish 
between such as were valuable and such as had none or very 
small value. Then to settle the title. His first purchase was 
made in 1841, and in succeeding years he continued to buy largely. 
Meanwhile he was constantly reducing his shipping interests, 
until in the year 1848 he relinquished that biisiness entirely. If 
his retirement from commercial pursuits was intended to relieve 
him from the cares of business, it was far from bringing about 
the desired result. 

The proper management of the timber lands which he had 
obtained was no easy matter. Left to themselves they would 
have been subject to the depredations of others, wdiile yielding 
no return to their owner. Surveys had to be made; lumbering 
operations encouraged and provided for; the internal waters of 
the State improved for the floating of logs; booming privileges 
secured for holding the logs, and mills for sawing them. In 
many instances it became necessary to obtain legislative authority 
to act. In all these matters Mr. Pingree exhibited his usual 
energy and sagacity. 

He also became interested in iron-mining and other enterprises, 
the managemeni and responsibility of wdiich devolved upon him 
to a greater extent than he could have anticipated. 

But all these cares would have been easily borne by him had 
he not become involved in financial difficulties, to extricate him- 
self from which required the long continued exertion of all the 
talents he possessed, and filled the last fifteen years of his life 
with labor, care and anxiety. 

He had bought largely of timber lands for permanent invest- 
ment. Through still further additions to them he sought a 
release from his difficulties. At the time of his decease his 
estate was heavily burdened with debt ; nevertheless, he had suc- 
ceeded in rescuing it from many of the complications in which it 
had become involved. 

He was chosen Presidential elector in 1849. He was elected 
mayor of Salem in 1851. He was President of the Essex Rail- 
road, and also of the Salem and Danvers Aqueduct. 

Salem has had many public spirited, and for its numbers not a 
few great men. It would not be easy to point to the name of 
one of whom it could be proved that the obligations of the city 
are greater to him than they are to David Pingree. 

He spent no nights or days in political pursuits, but he was a 
steady supporterof the Union and Constitution. He was never 
wanting in the performance of duty such as in his place it be- 
longed to a good citizen to render. 

He acquired the rare faculty of concentrating his thoughts on 
a subject, and holding them there at his will. He thought much, 
deeply and earnestly. He did not allow his reason to be disturbed 
by fancies, by imagination, passion or by any form of falsehood. 
He subjected all his powers to plain fact and pure reason; not to 


such reasons as might first present themselves, hut to such as 
would come when often summoned from the very bottom of the 
well of truth, and could bear every test of judgment. 

Thus, though the most modest of the members, he was certain 
to become the leader in every enterprise which he joined. A 
secondary position was never assigned to liim. 

He was pre-eminently a mnn of business, a merchant of integ- 
rity, broad views and untiring industry. Idleness and idle 
amusements had no attractions for him. Slighting no duty him- 
self, he expected and required of those in his employ a zealous 
and faithful performance of their work. He never measured 
moral worth by material prosperity; but treated all with the 
respect to wliich their characters entitled them. He never neg- 
lected his duties to others, or to the corporations over which he 
presided through all his varying fortunes. 

He passed through many trials and was involved in conflicting 
interests ; in them his integrity was always vindicated. To 
others struggling in business he not unfrequently rendered assist- 
ance, and for them assumed responsibilities, sometimes to the 
detriment of his own interests; hence arose misfortunes wliich he 
would not otherwise have experienced. 

In person he was well formed and proportioned, full six feet in 
height, with a finely shaped head, and a face of singular manly 
beauty. In the latter part of his life he contracted a stoop of 
his shoulders and a demeanor of apparent unconsciousness, not 
unusual in persons often subjected to severe mental exertion. 
His manner w'as so mild that it bore the air of meekness. He 
was modest and giave, but no one more enjoyed humor or cheer- 
ful conversation. 

He died at his home in Salem, March 31, 1863, aged 67 years, 
3 months.

The following list of voyages made by Mr. Pingree's vessels,

mercial ventures. In many instances the vessels made voyages 
to various jjorts before returning homewards; in such cases, only 
one point of destination is here given. 

In addition to the management of his uwn vessels, he w^as at 
the same time receiving consignments from others, and doing a 
general commission business.

(225) II. Annar,' b. at Rowley, June 30, 1797; d. unmarried. 

(226) III. Mary," b. at Rowley, March 13, 1801; m. Hon. Nathan 

Wood Hazen, a lawyer of Andover, Mass., Oct. 21, 
1830; d. March 23, 1880. 
Mary, daughter of Asa Pingree and Annar Perkins, was born 
March 13, 1801; married to Nathan W. Hazen, Oct. 1830. There 
was born alive no child of the marriage. She early became a 
member of the church in Rowley of which Rev. Isaac Braman 
was pastor. 


In this record of the name of Pingree it is pleasing to state that 
no one held it in higher respect, or more jealously guarded its honor. 
Of the family of her father she formed the common bond. She was 
the first to make sacrifices; the last to present claims. Indeed the 
happiness she sought was that reflected from the contemplation of 
what she conferred upon others. In many traits of character, she 
was like her brother, David Pingree. In all she was an honor and 
an ornament to her connexions. Her life was guided by the virtues 
and adorned by the graces which form the image of the Christian 

(227) IV. Hon. Thomas ^Perkins" Pingree, for many years a 
well known and highly respected merchant of Salem, 
Essax County, Massachusetts, was born in New 
Rowley, now Georgetown, July 24, 1803, at the 
Hazen farm, so called, and died December .29, 1864, 
at Wenham in the same county. 
His father was Asa Pingree, a farmer, who married Annar 
Perkins, March 17, 1795; (daughter of Moses Perkins and Annar 
his wife, whose maiden name was Cummings) she was born May 
31, 1771, and died June 9, 1853. With the New England custom 
to combine, for a better support, some handicraftsman's trade with 
farming, shoe making was carried on by him with the farm at 
New Rowley until his removal to Bridgton in Maine; where he 
built a saw and grist mill, conducting them successfully for several 
years until his return to New Rowley, where he resided till his 
death, April 24, 1834; his wife, who survived him, was a woman 
of more than ordinary character, possessed of very keen percep- 
tions, great firmness and decision, with many of the family char- 
acteristics that marked her brother, Thomas Perkins, as one of 
Salem's most distinguished and successful merchants. 

Their children were — 

David, Annar, Mary, Thomas Perkins, Asa. 

Thomas Perkins Pingree, besides the educational advantages of 
farmers' boys, was placed for study with the Rev. Isaac Braraan 
of New Rowley, (the father of Rev. Milton P. Braman of Danvers,) 
and after that was at North Andover Academy two years, and 
then at Hampton Academy in New Hampsliire. 

In 1819 he entered the counting-room of Hon. Michael Shepard 
in Salem, (who had been the confidential clerk and friend of his 
uncle, Thomas Perkins, and one of the trustees of his will at his 
death,) it is probable that the high character and business sagac- 
ity of Mr. Shepard, liis great amiability and charitable and 
religious views had much influence in shaping and developing 
his future; — here he remained till 1826, when he entered into 
mercantile business for himself at Union VVliarf in Salem, receiv- 
ing a legacy at the death of his uncle Thomas Perkins of forty 
thousand dollars. 


He married Abigail Garland of Danvers, July 17, 1828, who 
was born June 17, 1802. She was the daughter of Capt. Nath'l 
Garland and Lydia Jacoha his wife. Capt. Garland with his 
family within a lew years thereafter removed to Baltimore, where 
he entered into business as a commission merchant, continuing 
therein, highly esteemed and moderately successful, till his death. 

Mr. Pingree entered actively into-commercial business, and for 
a long series of years stood in the front ranks of the mercantile 
community of Salem. He was among the first to introduce the 
large trade in rubber with South America, and prosecuted the 
business with great energy and success, being perhaps the largest 
importer of rubber for many years into this country. For several 
years he was President of the Asiatic Bank in Salem, and one of 
the most efficient officers of the Essex Insurance Company ; later 
in life he was largely interested in the making of charcoal iron 
by the Briggs Iron Co., at Lanesborough in Berkshire county, 

During his mercantile career his vessels visited all quarters of the 
globe, and at the time of the gold discovery in California, the brig 
Hannah, owned by himself and another, being on that coast, a 
letter from the captain, (Henry Cheever,) giving the first inform- 
ation thereof, and a wonderfully truthful account and estimate of 
its vastness and the field it opened, was received, and the facts 
made known to, at the time, an incredulous public. In his busi- 
ness he was distinguished for his enterprise and energy, and his 
firmness in the prosecution of a purpose was of the most determ- 
ined character ; he was governed by the highest pi'inciples of hon- 
or and integrity, and noted for his sympathy with and charity for 
those overtaken by reverses in business; every one having busi- 
ness relations with him was his friend ; his benevolence was of the 
most generous character; liberal to all, he took more thought for 
the interests of others than for his own, and attracted to him all 
within the reach of his influence with an indissoluble affection. 

Though an energetic business man, he was an ardent friend of 
country life and out of door exercises ; he became quite attached 
to hunting, and for many years keenly enjoyed fox hunting, hav- 
ing at times twenty or moi-e fox hounds, and always making it en- 
joyable, not only for himself, but for bis many friends. His love 
of good horses was proverbial; never permitting it to degenerate 
into racing, or being an attendant thereat, he was yet a keen lover 
of a good horse, and the owner of many. For the last twenty 
years of his life he spent his summers at Wenham, about seven 
miles from Salem, where he had a beautiful farm which he greatly 
enjoyed, to which at the close of his life he retired, and where he 

His domestic life was pure and simple, being a strict and rigid 

disciplinarian, rather austere in his demeanor than otherwise, but 

very attentive and considerate of the desires and happiness of those 

about him, with a generous liberality ministering to every want 



approved. Yet be perhaps made the mistake of being too mncb 
feared in his ov/n family; possessing, as be did, so much that was 
tender, sympathetic and generous in his nature, it was surprising 
that even the rigid rule of his day should have produced so close 
an adherent. 

He at different times represented Salem in the House of Rep- 
resentatives, and the County in the Senate of the State, being a 
member of the House in 1833 and in 1850, and of the Senate in 
1854. In politics a Whig, yet never a politician. 

The Boston Courier of Jan. 2, 1865, contained the following 
obituary notice of him. Published in the mercantile metropolis 
of New England, it w^as no doubt a just tribute to his memory: 

" We regret to record the decease of Hon. Thomas P. Pingree, 
who died at Wenham on Thursday last, at the age of sixty-one. 
For a long series of years he stood in the front ranks of the mer- 
cantile community of Salem. He was distinguished for his deter- 
mination, energy and enterprise, and was among the first to open 
the trade in rubber with Para, which he continued till within a 
few years of his death. In his business he was governed by the 
highest principles of honor and integrity, and noted for his sym- 
pathy with, and charity for, those whom misfortune overtook in 
their business. It can be said of him, with truth, that every one 
with whom he had business intercourse was his friend. He was 
for many years President of the Asiatic Bank in Salem, and one 
of the most efficient officers of the Essex Insurance Company. He 
at different times represented Salem in the House of Representa- 
tives, and the County in the Senate of the State. In his private 
relations, and within the circle of his immediate friends, his noble 
traits of character shone prominent. Generous and confiding to 
a fault, he attracted to him all within the reach of his influence 
with an indissoluble affection. There are few men in the commu- 
nity whose loss will be more deeply and sincerely mourned. 

(228) V. Asa," a younger brother of David and Thomas P., was 
born in Bridgton, Maine, Feb. 25, 1807. 

He was educated for a mercantile life, and joined 
David in Salem for tlie purpose of entering upon it. 
Upon trial, he did not find it adapted to his inclina- 
tions. In the meantime Capt. Perkins had resumed 
his residence on his farm in Topsfield, where in his 
increasing infirmities he needed the aid and constant 
society of a friend. At his request he took his abode 
with him until his death. After the decease of his 
uncle he fixed his residence upon the farm, and be- 
came that most enviable of all characters, a content- 
ed and independent farmer. He passed his life be- 
tween books and agricultui-e, serving his family, 
dispensing sound opinions, doing charitable offices, 
and contributing in many ways to the support and 


improvement of society. He declined town offices; 
bo was chosen to the State Senate in 1843. 

He married Mary Catharine, daughter of CoL John 
Kilborn of Bridgton, Me. They had no issue. He 
died June 28, 1869. 

He was a person of quick perception, of fortitude, 
and of great kindness. His conduct towards his 
brother, David, in his vicissitudes, was a remarkable 
instance of fraternal affection. In his cause he put 
his whole property in risk, and for years often daily 
rode to Salem to consult with, and to aid him. He 
was single in his purposes, and, like his brothers, 
clear and decided in his judgment. His will was 
strong; he followed its dictates, regarding in his 
course only truth and justice. Yet no cloud rests 
upon his memory. There are few of the departed 
of whose memory so many kind words have been 
said by his contemporaries.

(244) I. Kezia,' b. in Hopkinton, N. H., Aug. 21, 1803; m. 
John McCusick of Denmark, Me. I cannot better 
describe the family than by extracts from a letter 
which I give below, written by their eldest daughter. 
" My mother Kezia Pingree, was born in Hopkinton, N. H , 
Aug. 21, 1803 ; died in Denmark, Me., Nov. 3, 1863. She passed 
her entire life in Denmark, except the first months of her infancy, 
and a few terms at Fryeburg Academy. December, 1829, she 
married John McCusick, (my father) a farmer, an honest, upright 
man, possessed of strong, earnest piety. He deceased Dec. 1, 1873, 
aged 72. My mother had a good education combined with a vig- 
orous constitution and great activity, which made her a very use- 
ful member of her father's large household, and a most kind 
unwearied mother. She was a quiet, home-loving woman, which 
was evidently her chosen sphere ; thougli occasions of sickness 
and bereavement among relatives and neighbors brought her care, 
sympathy and watching. There were two things in which, as a 
mother, she excelled. 

I, The help and direction too which she gave us in our early 
education. I, as the eldest child, felt its influence, perhaps, more 
than did my brothers, in consequence of the increasing cares of 
home. Up to the age of twelve, she was my daily teacher, when 
out of school. I commenced as many new books at home as at 
school. She drilled me in each and all the branches I studied. 
I think I commenced every branch under her tuition, and pursued 
Natural Philosophy and Astronomy wholly under her instruction. 
Indeed, the early habits of application I learned from my mother 


have helped me in a long course of teaching, more than anght else 
I have ever received. 

II. Her unwearied care and watching when we were sick. Her 
virtues : tell them not upon the tomb! They loved the shade of 
lier own cpiiet home. Tiiese still in memory's fond dream survive. 
The best of mothers ; the best of wives. 

This letter is dated July 21, 1875. 

"Our family consisted of 6 children : m3'Self, 

1. Roxana J. McCusick, aged 44 ; reside in Parkersburg, W. 
Va. ; engaged for many years in teaching ; for some 9 years. 

2, Rev. J. Frank McCusick, Parkersburg, W. Va. (Baptist.) 
He is a graduate of Waterville College, (now Colby University.) 
He is an energetic and active man, bringing his habits of close 
study and itvestigation down to the present. Age 39 ; m. ; has 
five dai;ghters. 

3 & 4. Benjamin F. and Ephraim, twins. Benjamin F. McCu- 
sick lives in Portland, Me., blacksmith. He is a Christian, giving 
close attention to business; an industrious, charitable citizen. He 
volunteered to serve in the army in the war. Age 37. He m. Cath- 
arine Elliott, at Portland in 1864. No children. They have an 
adopted daughter. Ephraim McCusick, twin, enlisted in 9th N. 
H. Infantry, Co. A. He was 24 years old; had not completed his 
education. In a letter home in June, 1862, he said, in announcing 
liis intention to enter the army, " I do not do it, mother because I 
am bloodthirsty, but feel it a duty to respond to the call of my 

He was the first of our family to volunteer. He was in the 9th 
army corps, which saw hard service in various fields; finally, in 
the siege before Petersburg, July 30, 1864, he was taken prisoner, 
and died in military prison at Danville, Va., Feb. 6, 1865, from the 
effects of long continued starvation. Age 27. 

He possessed a well disciplined mind, good habits, was a Chris- 
tian — member of the Baptist church. His officers spoke in com- 
mendable terms of his excellent life in the army; brave, patriotic 
and conscientious, always showed his Christianity by his manner 
of life, through all that time in camp, having prayer in his tent, 
whoever might be his companions. Not married. 

5. Rev. Hazen Pingree McCusick of California, (Baptist,) 35 
years old. Graduate of Waterville and Newton in 1869, has been 
a pastor in Illinois, but his health, always delicate, required him 
to change his home, first to the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming, 
afterwards to California where he finds a most healthful climate 
among the mountains. He has led a studious life. He was m. to 
Miss Flora McKinnon of Marysville, California, Dec. 25, 1873. 
No children. He was converted at the age of 16, j)ursued his 
entire academic and collegiate course with the ministry in view. 

Rev. J. Frank McCusick of Parkersburg, W. Va., married Miss 


Emma J. Robinson, Warren, Me., 1862. He was converted to 
God at the age of 21. His children are 
Linnie R. 12. 
Hattie W. 8. 
C. Robertie, 6. 
EUaF. 4. 
Irene Achsah, infant. 

6. Asa A. McCusick, b. 1844. Entered the army at the age of 
18, with his brother Ephraim, 9th N. H. Co. A., and perished of 
slow starvation in military prison at Salisbury N. C., Dec. 25, 
1864. He did good service as a soldier, endured much hardship, 
which greatly impaired his health, so that in 1863 he came home 
on a furlough, and was at home when his mother died. He re- 
turned to his regiment, was taken fprisoner in the battle of the 
Wilderness, May 12, 1864. He languished in military prison at 
Belle Isle, in Libby and in the stockade at Salisbury, N. C., where 
his strong ardent young life went out without a pillow or blanket 
under a Christmas sky, not quite 21 years old. 

His last letter to us at home written from Libby prison, con- 
cluded with "I want to see you very much indeed, and hope I 
shall some day," which my heart echoes to say, I expect to see 
him in the Resurrection, for he was a Christian. He professed 
religion and was baptized at the age of 12 years. 

Brother J. Frank McCusick, was first a soldier, a Lieut, in a 
Cavalry Regt. The last months of the war he was put on a Mil- 
itary Commissioner Court Martial, Alexandria, a post which he fill- 
ed creditably. My father was a man of strong patriotism, and in 
his declining years gave his sons cheerfully to the country's call, 
though he was pained at their sufferings. He was a man of good 
habits, and blameless life, and by example and precept instilled 
the love for and practice of morality into the hearts of his chil-

Death of Hon. J. F. Pingrey. It is a sad task to chronicle at 
any time the death of a good man, but pre-erainently so when a 
man of the charcteristics of this sketch. 

Mr. Pingrey at the time of his death was 45 years of age, had 
been a resident of Red Wing and its immediate vicinity for twen- 
ty years, and in all these long years, as a man, citizen, officer and 
soldier, he sustained an unblemished character, and a reputation 
for honor and integrity that attaches to but few and is surpassed 
by none. Mr. Pingrey united with the M. E. Church of this 
city in 1864, and since that time he has given evidence that he 
was a sincere Christian by an exemplary life and a firm adherence 


to the principles of Christianity, as taught in the Bible. His re- 
ligion was of no selfish charactei', but "to do good as he had op- 
portunitjV' was a cardinal virtue with him. He was a man of 
iarge intelligence and sound principles; as a member of the board 
of county commissioners of this county he assisted very materially 
in bringing about reform in the financial matters of our county, 
so that county orders were at par and good for what they called 
for and has finally resulted in a merely nominal coujity tax. As 
superintendent of public schools, he gave entire satisfaction, and 
took a great interest in developing the best phases of our com- 
mon school system. 

As a member of the State Legislature he had the confidence of 
his constituents, and respect of his feHow members of the House 
of Representatives. As a Lieut, of the 6th Minnesota Infantry 
he has a stainless record and an honored name. He early identi- 
fied himself with the order of Patrons of Husbandry, and has 
steadfastly been a staunch advocate of the principles of the order. 
Being natui'ally inclined to agriculture, he last year purchased 
and moved on to a farm in VVacouta, uniting with the Wacouta 
Grange of which he was a member at the time of his death, and 
which Grange is now one of the most flourishing in the state, and 
to which his decease will be a sad blow. The severity of his loss 
to his friends generally, and especially his family and relations 
cannot be measured by words; that they have the sympathies of 
the stricken community is evident from both words and actions of 
his entire acquaintance. He leaves a wife and six children to 
mourn his loss. May the widow's God comfort and sustain them, 
and be a father to the fatherless. His death occurred on the mor- 
ning of the 2nd inst. The disease, which rapidly did its work, was

Darius Harlan Pingrey Avas born in Andover, New York, April 
23, 1841. He is the sixth of a familj^ of seven children. His 
parents have a long-descended ancestry, and are now living in 
Andover on a farm. His father was thrown upon his own resources 
at early age of thirteen, and is regarded as a man of great energy 
and uprightness. 

The subject of this sketch was brought up on the farm and 
knows what the agriculturist has to do. His parents, appreciative 
of mental culture, gave all their children a good English educa- 
tion. Darius, however, was thought worthy of a more extended 
training and for college, which he entered at seventeen. Though 
his father assisted him financially to prosecute his studies, yet he 
was obliged to do something toward completing the course, and 
so he taught school in the winter and worked on the farm during 
the summer vacations. While w^orking on the farm he learned 
phonography at night, and, when teaching, he found time to pur- 
sue some of the studies in the course and to keep up with his class. 


He was graduated in 1863, and soon after was invited to take 
charge of an academy in Pennsylvania, a position he filled to the 
satisfaction of all concerned. As no opening or field for advance- 
ment was presented by this position, he resigned it at the end of 
a year and went to a business college in IJingliamton, New York. 
While in that city he became acquainted with the late Daniel S. 
Dickinson, who took a very warm interest in liim and gave him 
the benefit of his powerful influence in various ways. On leaving 
the commercial institute, young Pingrey was called to the posit- 
ion of head teachei- in a business college at Reading, Pennsylvania, 
and remained therein until appointed official reporter to the Penn- 
sylvania Senate in 1806. This place he held but a short time, as 
Messrs. Bryant and Slratton offered him the place of Principal 
to their Harrisburg College under a local proprietor. While here 
he issued a book entitled "The Practical Calculator, designed for 
Business Men." This volume met with a ready sale aiul was 
much valued. 

The finances of this college becoming somewhat deranged, the 
proprietor was obliged to sell his interest, and Mr. Pingrey then 
went to Washington, D. C, taking with him a testimonial signed 
by such men as Governor Curtin, Eli Slifer, then Secretary of State, 
and others. In Washington he found employment as reporter to 
the Senate. l4e went to work at the close of a Congressional 
term when the reporters had to labor sixteen hours a day, Sunday 
not excepted, to complete their transcripts of the ^proceedings. 
This strain soon told on his physical strength. The alternative 
was set before him by advisers: " Stimulate, or give up your situ- 
ation." The teachings of his youth, the dictates of his conscience, 
and the promptings of reason said " Resign," and he did so at 
the sacrifice of a part of his salary. Then he traveled to the West, 
and reached Illinois in the early summer of 1867, where he was 
engaged as Principal of Farmington City schools. He taught in 
Illinois until last May. His reputation as a teaclier stands high, 
and he is known also by his writings on educational subjects. 
His tact and talent in conducting a school is considered first-class. 
His rule is gentle, aiming to treat his pupils as ladies and gentle- 
men, and avoiding favoritism. 

While teaching, he found much time to write for the press, and 
has written for some of the leading periodicals of the country, 
his subjects chiefly pertaining to departments of political econ- 
omy. Some of his articles published in the Rural New Yorker 
and Prairie Farmer have attracted more than local attention. He 
has been a paid contributor to papers published in Salem, Oregon, 
Omaha, Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, Philadelphia, and New 
York. An article of his appeared in the Chicago Inter-Ocean 
last winter, in which he stated that the public schools were not 
in danger so much from the Roman Catholics as from the politi- 
cians who try to make political capital in their relations to them. 

In ISTi, the late editor of the Phrenological Journal, to which 


he has been a contributor, in a note to Mr. Fingrey encouraged 
him to enter the field as a lecturer or public speaker. This sug- 
gestion gave him fresh inspiration, and lie prepared a lecture on 
''American Institutions," and made his debut in 1875. His suc- 
cess has been much beyond the expectations of his friends. Some 
newspapers have characterized his lectuieas a fine production, evin- 
cing much research 'and scholarly ability rarely equaled." Last 
winter he organized a "C'entennial Bui'eau of Correspondence," 
for the purpose of furnishing country papers letters from the Ex- 
position. This undertaking was indorsed by the Chicago Times, 
Inter-Ocean, Springfield, (Mass.) Republican, and many other pa- 
pers. He went to Philadelphia at the opening of the Exposition 
with a list numbering nearly fifty papers, representing ten states. 
His patrons generally speak in favorable terms of his letters, 
• which are florid in style, and evince a good degree of graphic 

Mr. Pingrey was married in 1868 to Marion L. Harrington, daugh- 
ter of the late M. G. Harrington of New York, formerly law -part- 
ner Avith E. W. Stoughton of New York. She died in 1873, of con- 
sumption, leaving one child of four yeai"s. She was a faithful 
and loving Avife, a tender mother and Christian lady, ever earnest 
in benevolent works according to her opportunity.

Stephen Pingree, son of Samuel Elliott P., and grandson |of 
Job P., was born in Methuen, Mass., in 1751, and was married to 
Ruth Hoyt, Sept. 21, 1773. He was a soldier in the war of Inde- 
pendence and served under Washington at Long Island; he moved 
to Chester, N. H., where some of his children were born; his fam- 
ily consisted of one daughter and seven sons. In 1808, he with 
his whole family moved to Norvvay, Me., and w^as with his sons, 
settled in one neighborhood which they reclaimed from the wilder- 
ness. The father and sons were tall and sturdy men, and were 
all agriculturists, and three also were mechanics. He was a 
man of more than average ability and served the public in vari- 
ous responsible callings. He Avas a Whig in polities, and a Meth- 
odist of the early type. He and his wife both died at the age of 
87 years. 

HoYT Pingree, son of Stephen Pingree, was born in Manches- 
ter, N. H., May 1789, and served a regular apprenticeship with a 
farmer, and in 1801 moved to Norway, and married Sarah Turner 
of Durham, Me. They were the parents of nine sons and three 
daughters; at a late period they moved to Waterford, Me., where 
he died in June, 1865, and she in 1876. Hoyt Pingree was a sol- 
dier in the war of 1812. Politically he was a Whig until the 
formation of the Republican party, when he became a Democrat. 
He Avas a man of strong religious tendencies ; never a member 
of a church, but a believer at his death in the doctrines of the 
New Church, His wife was a Congregationalist. 

Luther Farrar Pingree, grandson of Stephen Pingree of 
Methuen, Mass., and son of Hoyt Pingree of Norway, Maine, was 


born in Norway, Oxford Co., Me., May 25, 1813. He was until his 
majority, employed In agricultural pursuits and attending the 
common schools; he then served an apprenticeship as a machinist 
and pattern maker, and has gained honorable distinction as a first 
class mechanic and inventor, which is demonstrated by the num- 
erous medals and diplomas received by him. Among the pro- 
ducts of his skill may be enumerated steam engines and machin- 
ery, carriages, mills and machines for manufacturing lumber, and 
he is the patentee and manufacturer of artificial limbs, which 
have been pronounced by eminent surgeons as equal to, if not the 
best in the world. In this department of compensatory art he 
has distinguished himself and given excellent satisfaction. Al- 
though a great practical worker, he has been a constant student in 
the natural sciences, literature and music, which have been the 
pastimes and delights of his life. These tendencies have been 
largely manifested in his children. 

From 1854 to 1861, Mr. P. was employed as a traveling general 
agent of the Union Manufacturing Co., and the Maine Associa- 
tion of the New Jerusalem Church, and thej American Sweden- 
borg Printing and Publishing Society, and the American New 
Church Association. 

Among the more public activities in which he has been inter- 
ested, were the military, in which he faithfully served out four 
commissions, the last of which was as Aid-de-ecamp and orderly ofH- 
cer of the 6th Division, Maine Militia. He is a life member of 
the Maine Charitable Mechanic's Association, has been it [Secreta- 
ry and one of its Trustees, its Vice President, and its President 
two years. He is an Odd Fellow in both branches and a member 
of the Grand Lodge and Grand Encampment of Maine, has been 
Grand Marshal and Grand Senior Warden ; has been a member 
of the Board of Managers of the Portland Provident Associa- 
tion, and also of the Widow's Wood Society, and teacher of Vo- 
cal Music in the Portland F'raternity, and also conductor of the 
musical service in the New Jerusalem Church, Portland; and is 
an honorary member of the Linonian Society of Yale College, 
which is one of the oldest Literary Societies in this country ; 
with the exception of Secretary's salary in three bodies, these 
services have been rendered without compensation. 

Morals and ethics and theology and the laws of life have been 
interesting matters which have claimed his attention from an ear- 
ly period. In theology he is a New Churchman or Swedenbor- 
giaii and has been a member of its communion more than thirty 
years. Political economy has engrossed his attention at certain 
periods, and he has occasionally made his influence felt through 
the press, but he has never been a politician in any professional 
sense; has never held office except that of Coroner and Justice of 
the Peace and Qorum, although he lias twice received the nomi- 
nation for member of the Legislature, and twice as member of 
the City Council, and in every case ran ahead of his ticket, yet 


failed in consequence of belonging to a party that was in the 
minority. Pie has always been a Democratic Republican of the 
Jefferso'nian and Jacksonian type, and during the late war was a 
war democrat. He was married to Elisabeth Marsh Dexter, 
daughter of Dea. David Dexter of Bath, Me., at the age of 28; 
they are the parents of nine children, as may be seen by the fami- 
ly record in this work. Mr. L. F. P. is tall and erect with light 
hair and blueish grey eyes, large and well proportioned without 
corpulence, possessed of great physical energy and endurance, a 
well balanced mind and average executive ability; is now 68 years 
of age, and feels a deep interest in the success of genealogy and 
history of the widely scattered family who are recognized by the 
name of Pingree. 

Mr. L. F. Pingree, now of Ferry village. Cape Elizabeth, has 
been a resident of Portland, Me., thirty-tive years. His children 
were educated in the public schools, and of his family one is a 
civil engineer and has been in the service of the city nine years, 
and is a graduate of the New York Homeopathic Medical College 
and is a practicing physician, one is a trunk maker and merchant, 
another a locomotive engineer, one a druggist's salesman, two 
music teachers, one of whom is a graduate of the Conservatory 
of Vocal Technique and physical development, her husband is a 
wholesale druggist, one a wholesale and retail dealer in ladies' 
furnishing goods, one a salesman and commercial traveler, and one 
a teacher of organ and piano, her husband is a ship master, the 
others are wives and mothers. All are in active, useful employ- 

Mrs. Elizabeth M. D. Pingree, wife of L. P. Pingree and 
daughter of Dea. David Dexter of Bath, Me. She was educated 
in the public schools of Bath and became a teacher at an early 
age. Although a domestic and good wife, and mother of a large 
family, to whom she has devoted the principal energies of her life, 
yet she has cultivated a taste for literature, art, and music, which 
have been the means of elevating the standard of education and 
culture in the Pingree Family.

Extract from the Journal by Ros. Hopkins, Clerk. Manuscript 
Journal in Secretary of State's Office, page 382. 

I think George Pengra was a son or grandson of Moses Pengry 
of the third generation, of whom I learn nothing after 1709. 

(865) James Pingry, was a soldier of the Revolution five 

years; was a blacksmith; after the close of the 
war moved to Lyme or Hanover, N. IL, near the 
line of the towns. Was probably a brother or 
cousin of George Pengra (864.) His grand daugh- 
ter living at Stowe, Vt., says her father James Pin- 
gry, was born in Tolland, Conn. I have written the 
town clerk of Tolland, who has examined the records 
and does not find the name there. My uncle Stephen 
Pingrey, born in Rowley in 1759, told me in 1825, 
that he liad understood there was a family of Pin- 
gry's in Conn, but knew nothing of them. 

(866) Moses Pengra was son of George, (864) b. at Ben- 

nington or Shaftsbury, Vt. As to the time of his 
birth or death I have no information. He was mar- 
ried and had children. 


(867) Marshall Pengea, son of (864) George, was born in 

Shaftsbury, Vt., moved to Pennsylvania and died there 
some thirty years since. I saw at that time a biograph- 
ical sketch of him in a newspaper, in Avhich he was 
spoken of in favorable terms, as a useful citizen, and a

(869) James Pingry, son of (865) James, born in Tolland, 

Conn.; removed with his father to Lyme, N. H. and 
afterwards to Thetford, Vt. ; was a blacksmith; m. 
Hannah Merrill of Plymouth, N. H. ; lived awhile in 
Plymouth, removed to Norwich, Vt. He was in the 
army and the war of 1812; was wounded at Fort Erie. 
The last gun fired there sent a ball into his breast. It 
was taken out of his back, an ounce ball. He lived 
from fall till April 1815, when he died. He served 
through nearly the whole time of the war; was twice 

(870) John Pingry, son of James, (865) settled in Strafford, 

Vt. ; ra. Mary Alger of Strafford ; was a member of 
the Freewill Baptist church. He went with all his 
family to Coshocton Co., Ohio, in 1817, afterwards

Died August 10, 1881, at the residence of John Miller, in Wal- 
lingford, Vt., Mrs. Eusebia Dickerman, widow of O. B. Dicker- 
man, aged 86 years. 

The deceased was the daughter of Nathaniel Pingrey, one of 
the early settlers of Mount Holly, in which she was born and 
where most of her life was passed. She married O. B. Dickerman 
in 1819, and they lived together for sixty years, he preceding her 
to the heavenly rest by nearly two years. They were both per- 
sons of great industry and prudence, and she proved to be the 
true helpmeet in all the years of active life. Most of those who 


were the companions of her early life have passed away, but 
many of her old friends and neighbors, as they read of her death, 
will be reminded of deeds of kindness and true neighborlj'- love. 
She was one who delighted in giving where any service could be 
rendered to those who were in sickness or other need. Kind, 
thoughtful, judicious, she M^as much esteemed by those who came 
into the closest contact with her life and best knew its self-deny- 
ing efforts. Some twelve years since she, with her companion, 
caine to Wallingford to reside with her daughter, the wife of John 
Miller. For most of these years she has been a confirmed invalid, 
compelled to remain in repose from active labors in which she had 
always found delight. Patiently her daughter and family minis- 
tered to her every want, and all was done that could be to make 
her comfortable and render more endurable the enforced inactiv- 

More than 50 years ago she united with the Baptist church in 
Mount Holly, and maintained that connection till-her death. It 
was in the days of the pastorate of Rev. Daniel Packer that she 
made her public profession of religion, and for him she retained 
the warmest admiration. As a Christian Mrs. Dickerman was 
quiet and unostentatious, but faithful and humble. 

The only surviving child is Mrs. Miller, above mentioned — a 
son having died nearly 12 years since. Two brothers, Darius 
Pingrey of Boston and Asahel Pingrey, residing in Iowa, are all 
that survive of 12 brothers and sisters. As one by one those of 
the older day are borne to their rest, there comes the reminder of 
how few of that generation remain, and of the many changes 
which come to o^^r lives. May it be said of us, as it truthfully 
can be of Mrs. Dickerman, that she died in the hope of a blissful 

Funeral services were held on Thursday afternoon, Rev. S. 
Henry Archibald officiating. 



The following is from a Newburyport paper, July ISSl, rela- 
tive to Hon. Solomon Foster, mentioned in No. 74. 

Ex-Judge Solomon Foster to-day reached his 91st birthday in 
good ihealth and with prospects of many years ahead of him. 
Judge Foster was born in Ipswich, Essex county, Massachusetts, 
on the 22d of July, 1790, and is the oldest of the four brothers 
and a sister living.. Very early in life, he left home for New- 
buryport, where he remained for some time. In the spring of 
1818 he came to Reading, where for 18 years he was was engag- 
ed in the shoe business with a gentleman named O'Brien under 
the firm name of Foster & O'Brien. He then went to Philadel- 
phia where he carried on the shoe and other business fo* eight 
years. In the meantime, in 1840, he had come to Pottsville, and 
erected the building No. 20 South Centre street, Pottsville. About 
1845 and 1846 he came here and located permanently and until 
five or six years ago was engaged in the shoe business. In the 
year 1840, when the Court House agitation was in progress he 
was appointed upon the committee of citizens to prosecute the 
work. In order to get this made a county town the people of 
Pottsville had to erect the Court House building; subscriptions 
were taken up and handled by the committee mentioned, which 
made Judge Foster paymaster and 'superintendent. In 1849 he 
was appointed Associate Judge of the county, and the following 
year was elected for a term of live years. Since' 1748 he has been 
an elder in the Frst Presbyterian church, but long before that 
date was an influential member of it. His faculties remain unim- 
paired and his recollection of the events of over half a century 
ago are vivid. He has an elastic step, enjoys a good appetite, and 
regularly attends to his business. Mr. Foster was never married. 
The long, honored and useful life he has led in this community 
entitles him to the respect and esteem in which he has been held 
by everybody, and all will join the Ohronicle in hoping that he 
may at least attain his centenary to which he is so raj^idly pro- 
gressing. — Pottsville, Penn.^ Chrouicle, July 22, 1881. 

Judge Foster is the oldest of a family of five, three of whom 
reside in this city, their names and ages being as follows: Milicent, 
86; Nathaniel, 84; Thomas, 82. Two brothers reside in Potts- 
ville, Solomon, the one referred to, aged 91; and Jesse, aged 89. 
This is one of the most remarkable records which can be found of 
any family in the country; four brothers and a sister, the young- 
est of whom is 82 years old is hard to beat.

1557. The expenses the Revolutionary war liad been 
so great upon the inhabitants of this town, that some 
became discouraged, sold their estates and with their

Pao-e 406. The manner of writing dates when this country was 
first settled was by numbering the months. This prac- 
tice prevailed in Rowley until about the year 16G0. 
March was the first month and February the twelfth. 
The 25th of March being Lady day or Annunciation 
of the church, was the first day of the year. After 
numbering the months was discontinued, still the year 
commenced with the 25th of March and so continued 
until 1752. From this cause arose the custom of in- 
dicating the change by the use double dates, between 
the first of January and the 25th of March in each

July 27, 1880. 

Andrew Pixgree (my father) was born in Rowley, Mass., Feb. 
17,1775. Died March 25, 1846. In early manhood he followed 
the boot and shoe manufacturing business in some town not far 
from the place of his birth and was foreman of quite a large 
amount of business. He was leader of a choir in an orthodox 
church where he lived, delighting very much in not only vocal 
but instrumental music. He was not a bigot in his religious 
views, but in early life was inclined to think there must be a hell 
for the desperately wicked. Was not a very regular attendant 
at church, but spent his Sundays at home, reading his Bible and 
singing, resting from all the usual labors of the week. One year, 
within my recollection, (perhaps rather as a joke, as he seldom 
attended church,) he was elected Tithingman, and attended at 
the post of duty every Sunday during the year. Never before 
were the unruly boys so strictly subjected to the rules of New 
England " blue laws." Once, only, in the course of his official 
term and duty did a smile break the dignity of his countenance. 
An ixnruly boy, full of fun and the devil, seating himself in 
church beside his dignity, pulled a large knife and a plug of to- 
bacco from his pocket and politely offered them to the peace 
officer of the day, who never used the poison. The act was done 
so deliberately and with such apparent kindness, that the courtesy 
was acknowledged with an "unwilling smile!" 

He married Abiah Straw (my mother) of Weare, N. H., about 
the year 1802, lived in Weare, Springfield, Grantham, and Meri- 
den in Plainfield, N. H. Removed to Kane Co., Illinois, in Octo- 
ber, 1838, with his family. The place is now called Pingree . 
Grove, Farming was mainly his business here. He was indus- 
trious, economical, temperate and strictly honest. Was a demo- 
crat all his life and died a Universalist, the 25th of Mai'ch, 1846; 
was buried at Udina, neav his home. Age 79. 


Abiah Straw, who became his wife, (ray mother) wa?. born in 
the town of Weare, N, H., Aug. 8, 1786. Her father's Christian 
name was Israel and her mother's maiden name was Abiah Nel- 
son. Some of the relatives live in that vicinity now, of whom I 
know but little. She was a Universalist and one of the best of 
women. Died Sept. 28, 1846, aged 58 years and was buried at 
Udina. She was the mother of ten children, named as follows, 
viz: Andrew, Straw, Abiah, Francis, Betsey, (died young) Sally, 
Emily, Daniel, Betsey Noyse, and William Cutler. The above is 
the order of the births in which I will write of them. 

Rev. Andrew Pingree (my brother) was born in Weare, N. 
H., July 16, 1803. Soon after removed to Springfield and the other 
towns named, with his parents. Learned the clothier's trade at 
about 21 years of age and also commenced teaching winter public 
schools about the same time. Continued to teach winters and 
follow his trade and attend school at Kimball Union Academy at 
Meriden, N. H., till the spring of 1827, when he removed to Hing- 
ham, Mass. For a number of years he continued to teach, some- 
times all the year, at other times only winters, spending the bal- 
ance of his time clerking in mercantile houses, &c., and studying 
for the Universalist ministry with Rev. A. A. Folsom of Hing- 
ham, Mass., until about the year 1834 or 5; having up to this 
time taught school in a number of the towns of the vicinity of 
Hinghara, and although he was quite successful in all his under- 
takings, he was particularly so in North Scituate, for there he 
became acquainted v/ith the one who afterwards became his wife. 

About 1834, he commenced preaching the Gospel and soon re- 
moved to Belfast, Maine, and in connection with preaching every 
Sabbath two or three times, he taught a High School in Belfast 
and also in Castine, Me., for a number of years, having in Oct. 
1838 visited Kane Co., 111., and located some land which he con- 
tinued to own during his lifetime. On his return from Illinois 
to Maine he continued to preach and teach till the fall of 1843, 
when, not forgetting the attachment he formed in North Scituate, 
Plymouth Co., Mass., he returned to the object of mutual attrac- 
tion and on Jan. 1, 1844, married Miss Hannah M. Curtis. Re- 
mained in Scituate until Sept. 1, 1846, and removed to Pingree 
Grove, Kane Co., 111., with his wife, and ever after made that his 
permanent home. He preached and taught school one year in 
St. Charles, Kane Co., 111., and continued to preach till press of 
other business made it necessary to retire mainly from the duties 
of the ministry, except on jfuneral occasions and celebrating mar- 

During the balance of his life he filled many important po- 
sitions which, in addition to his own affairs, made his mental 
and physical exertions very laborious. He became the owner of 
1200 or 1500 acres of land and considerable other property. Was 
elected, and several times re-elected County Surveyor, and did 
surveying in every town and village in the county, was for 18 


years a member of the Co. Board of Supervisors, was appointed 
by the Probate Court Special Commissioner to settle many dif- 
ferent estates; executor, administrator, guardian, &c., on some 
thirty cases; was Postmaster many years, Notary Public, &c., 
&c. He held the position of trustee of the Lombard University 
at Galesburg,, Knox Co., 111., a Universalist College, for many 
years to which he was very much devoted and ai<led it by many 
valuable donations. He was a life long democrat and Universal- 
ist and much respected for his honesty and ability. His labois 
continued to the end of \ii% and he died at his residence in Pin- 
gree Grove, on the 18th of August, 1879, aged 76 years. Was 
buried at Udina. (P. O. Pingree Grove, Kane Co., 111. 

Miss Hannah M. Curtis who became his wife, was born April 12, 
1811, in North Scituate, Plymouth Co., Mass., was the daughter 
of Aminiel Curtis, Esq., of the same place. She is talented and 
every way worthy to be the respected widow of her kind affec- 
tionate husband whom she survives, and occupies and owns the 
homestead vvhich she and her husband enjoyed together. Uni- 
versalist. They have no childi-en except an adopted daughter 
whom they have raised from infancy, whose name was Emma 
Gilbert and was adopted by them under the name of 

Emma G. Pingree, who was born at Gilbert Station, town of 
Rutland, Kane Co., 111., on April 23, 1844. She is a good schol- 
ar, having had unusual facilities for acquiring an education at 
Lombard University. She is much beloved by her associates, 
but it remained to the good fortune of Leverett M. Kelley, Esq., 
to capture her heart and become united to her in matrimony on 
Nov. 22, 1865. 

Leverett M. Kelley (her husband) was born in Schenectady, N. 
Y., Sept. 28, 1841, is a thorough business man and since their 
marriage has been twice elected Sheriff of Kane Co., 111. Served 
in the army through the war and rose from the position of a pri- 
vate in the 36th Regiment Illinois Vol. Infantry to that of Cap- 
tain. He is a Mason. They have three children, Gertrude H., 
Charles K. and Grace. Mr. Kelley is a republican. He and 
wife ai'e Universalists. 

Straw Pixgree (my brother) was born in Springfield, N. H., 
March 12, 1805. Lived in Meriden, N. H., and followed farming 
till the spring of 1838, when he removed to Pingree Grove, Kane 
Co., 111., bought land and followed farming. He was a democrat 
and Universalist. He married, April 13, 1844, Harriet Thurston, 
who was born in Zanesville, Ohio, Dec. 6, 1821, and now (1880) 
lives at Pingree Grove, 111., on the homestead established by her 
husband. Universalist. Farmoi'. He died Sept. 18, 1874, aged

born at Pingree Grove, 111.

No. (289) Eunice Abigail Sanderson, m. Edward Lawtou July 1, 1878; 
d. Feb. 9, 1879. " She took upon herself the holy vows of religion, and 
united with the Baptist church August 3, 1866. She was joined in 
marriage with Mr. Edward Lawton, July 1, 1878; they were happily situ- 
ated in their new home and had the liindest wishes of all for their pros- 
perity. She was a member of Cold Brook Lodge, No. 80, I. 0. G. T., and 
took an active part in its work, holding important offices in its adminis- 
tration. Slae had a large circle of friends and was respected and beloved 
by all who knew her. A large number of relatives and friends assembled 
at her late residence to attend the funeral services which took place on 
Tuesday. The deepest sympathy is felt for those touched most deeply by 
this grief, and in particular for the devoted husband and mother, who are 
stricken indeed. A pall of gloom is thrown over the community. The 
dear, kind, active little woman will be missed everywhere. Twenty-six 
years a dutiful daughter ; nearly twelve years a faithful Christian ; seven 
shoiii months a loving wife ; now forever with the Lord."
