Safqrday's Worcester Gazette contaTned the 
fol^wiDg from its Royalston correspondenf 
Thomas Norton Hart, present mayor-fleet of Bos- 
ton, was a Royalston boy. His father, Daniel 
Hart of North Reading, married Margaret Norton 
daughter of Major John Norton of this town, 
whom some of the old people will remember as 
quite a prominent man in the business affairs of 
the town at that time. Mrs. Hart, havin«- be-^n 
left with three small children, of whom Thorn is 
was the youngest, and no means for tteir sup/ort 
came to her father's house when Thomas was an 
infant. There Thomas spent his boyhood days 
Dan, an older brother, left Royalston when quite 
a lad, and engaged in the printing busi&ss at the 
Journal office in Boston, where he died someyeni-s 
after. Previous to his death, he had found work 
for Lis brother Thomas in a hat, cap and ful'Str.ie 
m that city, where the present mayor-elect lii-st 
began his business career.

INTllODUCTION. 



The design in publishing this Register is, to preserve, in 
a convenient form, such facts as have been collected. They 
cannot fail to add to the information, and gratify the curi- 
osity, of the descendants of Thomas and Ann Flint. 

The compilers would have rejoiced to have made the work 
still more complete, by a more perfect description of their 
venerated and worthy ancestors, and by fuller details of all 
the families. They are aware that there are some whose 
names they have not been able to obtain. 

Next to Massachusetts, the largest number are to be found 
in Maine ; but they are scattered into nearly every State of 
the Union. It is hoped, however, that they have given such 
information as may enable those whose genealogy is not 
given in full to trace back their lineage to their ancestors. 

Doubtless, many facts and events relative to our ancestors, 
the knowledge of which would be highly gratifying, were 
never recorded, and all memory of them is lost forever. 
Their particular toils, trials, and deprivations, are unknown ; 
we know only that they were such as, in our present state of 
ease and plenty, it is hard to conceive of. The howling wil- 
derness was before them, inhabited by wild beasts and In- 
dians, and for their defence against the cold and inhospi- 
table winters, they had only their hastily-made log huts. 



4 INTRODUCTION. 

They were without roads or mills, and with few of the con- 
veniences of civilized life. They were often surprised and 
murdered by the hostile Indians, and were compelled to take 
their guns with them to the meeting-house, and to the field, 
when at work, in order to protect themselves from their sud- 
den and murderous attacks. These, and many other priva- 
tions and hazards, incidental to the lives of those pioneers, 
were such as it is not easy to describe to the life, and such 
as it would be difficult, at the present day, to induce persons 
to undergo. 

In a work of this kind, it would not be strange if there 
should be some inaccuracies. The compilers, however, have 
stated nothing but what they believe to be derived from 
good authority. Town, county, and family records are the 
authorities which have chiefly been depended upon. 

A sliglit sketch of some individuals bearing the name, but 
not belonging to this family, has not been deemed inap- 
propriate. 

We find there were four individuals by the name of Flint, 
who had emigrated to this country and settled in Massachu- 
setts before 1650, namely : Thomas and William, of Salem ; 
Henry, of Braintree ; and Thomas, of Concord. 

Thomas and William, of Satem, were brothers, and arrived 
here probably before the year 1640. William is mentioned 
in the Salem records in 1642, at which time there is some 
evidence to show that he had a mother living in this country. 
Hanson, in his History of Danvers, says that William landed 
here about 1640. Flint Street, hi Salem, is said to be over 
land he once owned, and near to where his dwelling-house 
stood. By a plan now extant it is shown that he owned the 
land from the corner of Flint and Essex streets, running 
through to Broad Street, and from thence easterly, nearly or 
quite, to Pickering Street, and from thence to Essex Street. 
He also owned land in the Southfields. The first deed 



IXTRODUCTION. 5 

to him on record is dated July 23, 1652. He died Febru- 
ary 2, 1673, aged 70 years. His widow, Alice Flint, died 
October 5, 1700. The inventory of his estate amounted to 
£911 15s. He had six children, namely : Edward, Thomas, 
Elizabeth, Margaret, Alice, and Hannah. They were all 
married, and all lived in Salem, excepting Elizabeth, who 

married Woodis, and resided in England. His daughter 

Alice was arraigned before the Essex County Court, in 1652, 
for wearing a silk hood; but, proving she was worth X200, 
was discharged. She subsequently married John Picker- 
ing, and lived in a house in Broad Street, which is now 
standing, and owned by one of her descendants. 

The posterity of William Flint are not numerous ; the 
male descendants have either removed to a distance or be- 
come extinct. None of them are to be found in Salem or 
its vicinity, although there is some reason to believe that 
descendants of the line may be found in Xova Scotia and 
New Brunswick. 

Henry Flint came from England in 1635, was a clergy- 
man, and was ordained over the Societv in Braintree (now 
Quincy), March 17, 1640, and died April 27, 1668, aged 
61 years. His widow, Margery, who was sister of President 
Hoar, of Harvard College, died Marcli 10, 1687. They 
had five sons and five daughters ; three of the sons — David, 
John, and Cotton — died in infancy. Seth died at the age of 
20 years. Josiah, the eldest, graduated at Harvard College 
in 1661, and was ordained over the Society in Dorchester in 
1671, and died September 16, 1680, aged 35 years. He 
married Esther Willet, by whom he had three sons and three 
daughters. His son Henry, born in 1675, graduated at Har- 
vard in 1693, and was appointed tutor in said college in 
1699, which office he held until 1754. He died unmarried, 
in February 1760, aged 85 years. 

Thomas Flint, of Concord, was brother to the Rev. Henry, 



6 INTRODUCTION. 

of Braintree, and came from Matlock, in Derbyshire, Eng- 
land. He settled in Concord, Mass., in 1638, where he is said 
to have owned one thousand acres of land, including Flint's 
Pond. He brought with him, it is said, X4000 sterling, much 
of which he expended for the benefit of the town. He pos- 
sessed wealth, talents, and a Christian character ; represented 
the town four years, and was an Assistant eleven years. He 
died October 8, 1653, aged 50 years. His will is the first 
recorded in the Middlesex Probate records. The inventory 
of his estate amounted to .£1441 6s. 8d. He had sons, John 
and Ephraim, and several daughters. His descendants are 
somewhat numerous. 

Shattuck, in his History of Concord, suggests that Edward, 
Thomas, and William, of Salem, may have been sons of 
Thomas of Concord. The evidence appears strongly and 
conclusively otherwise. By the records of the city of Salem, 
it is found that Edward was the son of William, and that 
William was born in the year 1603, which makes him of the 
same age of Thomas of Concord, and about four years older 
than Henry of Braintree. Thomas and William, of Salem, 
were brothers ; they could not, either of them, have been the 
sons of Thomas of Concord, If any relationship existed 
between them, it must be traced farther back than to the time 
of their arrival in this country. 



THE FLINT FAMILY. 



-^^ 



FIRST GENERATION. 

(1) THOMAS FLINT, the emigrant ancestor, came to 
America, as tradition reports, from Wales, in Great Britain. The 
first mention made of him in the town records of Salem is in 1650 ; 
but there is reason to believe that he came to this country much 
earlier; and there is also some evidence to show that he had a 
mother here as early as 1642. He was among the first settlers of 
Salem Village, now South Danvers. The spot in the wilderness 
which he selected for his home is situated on the Salem and 
North Reading road, about six miles from the present Court House 
in Salem, and five miles from the town of North Reading, and 
near Phelps's mill and brook. He acquired his land by purchase. 
The first deed to him on record, " containing one hundred and fifty 
acres of meadow and pasture land, and lying within the bounds 
of Salem," he bought Sept. 18, 1654, of John Pickering. The 
price paid for this land is not mentioned ; but quite a good opinion 
can be formed of its value, from the fact that John Pickering, three 
years before, gave Mr. John Higginson thirteen pounds for the 
same land. 

The second lot recorded, containing fifty acres, he purchased 1st 
January, 1662, of Robert Goodall, for which he paid twenty 
pounds sterling. It is described as situated in Salem, and as 
being " near upon a square," and bounded southerly by land of

Henry Phelps, westerly by Phelps's Brook, ond northerly and east- 
erly by land of said Goodall.^ 

This farm of the old patriarch has always remained in the pos- 
session of his descendants. It is now occupied by the heirs of 
Elijah Fhnt (238), and may truly be called the old homestead,' it 
having been in the family more than two hundred years. He died 
April 15, 16G3. His wife's name was Ann^Vriaey had ^ , n C-t-f-- ' £

SECOND GENERATION. 

(2) Capt. THOMAS FLINT, 1st son of Thomas (1), was a 
farmer and carpenter, and lived on the homestead. He seems to 
have been much respected by his neighbors of the village, and to 
have possessed a commanding influence among them, which he 
used in a judicious and salutary manner. His name is identified 
with the military organization of his day, which, on account of the 
hostile depredations of the Indians, required men of nerve and 
energy. He was ia King Philip's War; and in the expedition, 
commanded by Capt. Gardner, against the Narragansetts, in 1675, 
in the attack at the swamp, he was wounded ; but probably not 
seriously, as he afterwards held several commissions in the village 
company. But while thus occupied with secular affixirs, they did 
not engross his mind to the exclusion of those of a more impor- 
tant and weighty character — the religious interests and wants of 



1 This deed was witnessed by Giles Cory, whose house stood upon land that after 
his death .became a part of the Flint homestead. When eighty years of age, Cory 
fell a victin to the witchcraft delusion of 1692, by suffering the cruel torture of being 
pressed to death — the first and the only instance of this barbarous punishment 
inflicted in New England.

the village. When the attempt to establish the village church 
was commenced, he was deeply interested in the movement, and 
prominent in liis endeavors to bring the matter to a successful 
issue. He, with others, prepared a petition to the church in Sa- 
lem, enjoining, among other reasons why their request should be 
granted, that if they remained any longer without the privileges 
of religion, " they would become worse than the Heathen around 
them." 

As a mechanic, he appears to have possessed considerable skill, 
from the fact that he was selected by the inhabitants of Salem 
village to build the fii'st meeting-house in that place. 

He was a large land-holder, owning real estate in the counties 
of Essex and Middlesex, a large portion of which was in the 
latter county, in the town of Reading, and in that part of it which 
now constitutes the town of North Reading. 

These purchases were made at difierent periods, from 1664 to 
1702, and amounted in the aggregate to more than nine hundred 
acres of land. One of these lots, in Reading, purchased Dec. 
29, 1701, of Ephraim Savage, of Boston, for a consideration of 
£60, is described as being upland, and containing one hundred 
acres, and called "Saddler's jNTeck," and bounded on the east by 
Adam Hart, on the north by Ipswich River and the meadows, 
south by Bear Meadow, and west by common land. 

From these lands he gave farms, by deed of gift, to three of his 
sons, namely : Ebenezer, William, and Jonathan. 

He died May 24, 1721, aged about 76 years. 

Married, May 22, 1666, Hannah Moulton, who died March 30, 
1673.

(4) SERGEANT GEORGE FLINT, 2d son of Thomas (1), 
born January 6, 1652. He went to Reading before the year 1682, 
and settled on land he acquired by inheritance from his father, and 
was the first of the name in that town. He was a farmer, and 
resided in the North Precinct, in that part which now constitutes 
the village of North Reading. His house stood on a gentle emi- 
nence, commanding a fine prospect of the river and the adjacent 
meadows, which to the early settlers was the chief attraction of 
the town. Tradition says that his was the first framed house 
built in the precinct, and that it was used as a garrison house 
while there were hostile Indians in the colony ; and that upon the 
doors of which were seen marks, said to have been made by the 
bullets of the Indians. Another circumstance connected with this 
family, and which was frequently related by the older portion of 
it, is, that on a pleasant Sabbath all the family were absent at 
church but two of the daughters of Sergeant Flint, who were left 
at home in charge of the house. During their absence, one of 
the daughters took a pistol, and, aiming it at the other, said: " Sup- 
pose you were an Indian, how easily I could shoot you ! " At that 
moment the pistol went off, and lodged its contents in the shoulder 
of her sister, which crippled her for life. Her father in his will men- 
tions his "unfortunate daughter Mary," and makes suitable pro- 
vision for her proper maintenance. Her grandfather, Nathaniel 



SECOND GENERATION. 11 

Putnam, gives her a double portion, '' because she hath a kime 
arm." The old garrison house was taken down several years 
since, and one of modern construction erected in its place. 

He was one of the Selectmen of the town for several succes- 
sive years ; was a member of the Salem village church, and was 
quite active in religious matters, as appears by the interest he took 
in the organization of the North Parish and church. He presided 
as Moderator of the first meeting of the parish, and ever after, as 
long as he lived, took a leading part in the management of its 
afiairs. He gave the parish one acre of land, on which the first 
meeting-house was built. 

The first minister of- the precinct church. Rev. Daniel Putnam, 
was his nephew. 

He died June 23, 1720, aged 68. . . •^. '■ ■

(12) EBENEZER flint, 3d son of THOMAS (2), born 
April 6, 1683. 

He was a farmer, and hved in North Reading, on land which 
was given to him by deed of gift from his father, bearing date 
January 28, 1718. This farm consisted of one hundred and 
twenty -five acres of upland and meadow, which long since passed

The following obituary of him, is copied from the Salem 
Gazette : 

" Died in Reading, 8tli inst., Mr. James Flint. He lost his life 
in the amusement of fowling and fishing, of which he was ex- 
tremely fond through life. On the day of his death he entered a 
wood in quest of game, but not being successful with his gun, he 
took his angling lines, with a small boat, and went out on Swan 
Pond, for the purpose of fishing. Having proceeded but a short 
distance from shore, he probably made a misstep, fell on the side 
of the boat, and turned it over. It was found bottom upwards. 
After a prompt and diligent search by raking the bottom of the pond 
for more than twenty-four hours, he was taken up and conveyed to 
his family. They deeply mourn the loss of an affectionate and

faithful friend. Under the constant influence of Christian princi- 
ples and precepts, his faith was rational, his mind steady, his 
affections pure, and his passions regular. All the duties belonging 
to the important relations of husband, parent and brother, he dis- 
charged with tenderness and fidelity. In him the Christian relig- 
ion has lost a uniform friend and supporter, the community in 
which he lived an ingenious artist and useful member, and his 
country a true patriot. Let the manner of his death admonish 
the aged of their infirmities, and men of every age to be also 
ready."

Farmer, and lived in South Danvers. He inherited his father's

ing, energetic man. Was an officer in the war of the Revolution. 
Hanson, in his Histoiy of Danvers, pays the foUow^ing tribute to 
his memory. 

" Samuel Flint was one of the bravest of those who answered 
their country's call in the hour of her danger. He took a very 
active part in the affray at Lexington. An officer once asked him 
where he should be found on a certain occasion. His reply wtis 



FOURTH GENERATION. 2o 

worthy the proudest clays of Sparta : ' "Where the enemy is, there 
you will meet me.' A report returned to Danvers on the evening 
of the battle of Lexington, that Capt. Flint was slain ; but he 
soon returned to dissipate the rumor. He was engaged in the 
army, constantly doing good service, having been eight months in 
the league of Boston. He was drafted, wdth three other captains, 
to go to New York. They had but tw^enty-four hours to prepare, 
and they met at Leach's tavern, where they chose Flint captain, 
and Henrick, of Beverly, first lieutenant. He was killed, at the 
head of his company, at Stillwater, Oct. 7, 1777, and was the only 
officer from Danvers slain in the Revolution."

containing 200 acres, which was sitviated in the westerly part of 
the precinct, in the vicinity of " Lobbs' pound mill ;" a locality well 
known at this day, near the Wilmington line. At that time the 
main road from Boston to the interior, instead of passing in a 
direct course through the centre of the precinct, wound round by 
his house, Avhich made his locality an excellent one for a tavern. 
For many years his house was a noted place of resort for travellers, 
and quite celebrated for the famous flip its landlord made, — a 
beverage very much in vogue at that time.

FOURTH GENERATION. 27 

(100) Capt. JOHN FLINT, 2d son of Ebenezer (31), bom

Farmer, and lived in North Reading, on the homestead of his 
grandfather, Serg't George Flint. It is now owned by Mr. J. 
Gowen, having passed out of the name of the family several 
years since. 

Rev. Dr. James Flint, in his Centennial Address at Pteading, in 
speaking of him, says that " he was a man of stern aspect, and of 
temper inflexible to a fault ; " and relates this circumstance as 
illustrative of his character. In speaking of pubhc worship in his 
boyhood, he says : " Tlie hymn was read by the deacon, a line at a 
time, and so sung by the choir. This usage ceased when a new 
collection of hymns was introduced, together with a bass-viol, to 
aid the choir of singers. To this innovation Capt. John Flint was 
irreconcilably opposed. I well remember to have seen this vener- 
able white-haired man, with his long cane, walk doggedly the 
whole length of the broad aisle of the house while the hymn was 
reading, and taking his stand during the singing at sufficient dis- 
tance to be out of hearing of the profane viol. Yet I remember 
this man taking me, out of pure kindness, when a child, a bee 
hunting."

having been in its name one hundred and twenty-five years.

(198) HEZEKIAH FLINT, 2d son of William (75), born in 
North Reading, June 4, 1748, and died in Cincinnati, Jan. 2, 1811. 

Carpenter and farmer, and Uved, during his residence in North 
Reading, on a farm situated on the "lower end road," a few rods 
from the Andover road, and near the homestead of George Flint 
(4). This farm he sold for the purpose of emigi-ating to Ohio. 
He was one of the forty-eight pioneers that formed the " Ohio 
Company," in 1787, whose object was to settle the new and fertile 
valley of the west. According to Dr. Hildreth's " Pioneer History 
of the West"-— 

" The company formed into two sections. The advance guard, 
consisting of twenty-two men, and containing all the boat-builders 
and mechanics, under the direction of Major Haffield Wliite, met 
at Danvers, Mass., early in Dec, 1787, and took up their line of 
march. After a tedious and toilsome journey, aggravated by the 
inclemency of the weather, they reached their destination by 
joining the other section at SummiU's Ferry, on the western side 
of the Alleghany Mountains. By the 2d of April, 1788, they com- 
pleted a boat of sufficient dimensions to hold all their number, 
which they named the ' Adventure Galley,' — but she was subse- 
quently called the ' Mayflower,' — and on the afternoon of the same 
day, commenced descending the river; and after encountering 



FIFTH GENERATION. 89 

many obstacles, arrived at the mouth of the Muskingum River, 
about noon on the 7th of April, 17SS." 

In about two years after, Mr. Flint removed to Cincinnati, where 
he remained until his death. 

Married, Oct. 12, 1769, Esther Coose.

(204) Col. DANIEL FLINT, 3d son of James (78), born in 
North Reading, Sept. 1, 1761, and died June 5, 1838. 

Farmer, and lived in North Reading. 

Col. Fhnt possessed, in an uncommon degree, a strong and vig- 
orous intellect, with indomitable perseverance, and great native 
force of character. With very limited advantages of acquiring 
an education in youth, he nevertheless, by diligent self-culture, 
overcame this deficiency, so that he not only managed his own af- 
fairs with system and accuracy, but in the various offices of justice 
of the peace, selectman, etc., faithfully and acceptably transacted 
a large and intricate amount of public business, oftentimes requir- 
ing legal forms and knowledge. He represented his native town 
several years in the State Legislature, and on those occasions par- 
ticipated freely in the debates, and guarded well the interests of 
his constituents. He was a member of the Constitutional Conven- 
tion of 1620. In this body, as in the legislature, he was active, 
vigilant, and energetic, and rendered good service by his acute and 
discerning intellect. 



40 THE FLINT FAMILY. 

In his social relations he was genial, courteous, and companion- 
ahle, of an eminently pacific disposition. He not only scrupu- 
lously avoided giving offence to any, but in many instances was 
the means of preventing unhappy occurrences in his own com- 
munity, and of conciliating those who had become estranged. In 
a word, he was ever ready to discharge all the kind and friendly 
duties of life with promptness and alacrity. 

Married, July 24, 1783, Priscilla, daughter of William and Pris- 
cilla (147) (Flint) Sawyer, who was born May 18, 1762, and died 
June 4, 1849. 

Nine children.

(205) ADAM FLINT, 4th son of James (78), born Aug. 20, 
1776, and died June 28, 1808, by drowning in Martin's Pond, in 
North Reading. 

He was, in common with his father and most of his ancestors, 
extremely fond of fishing and gunning, a trait of character pe- 
culiarly marked in the common family; and it was in the pursuit 
of the former amusement that he lost his life. It is a remarkable 
fact, that his father, only a few years previous, lost his life in 
another pond, in the same town, under similar circumstances. Mr. 
Flint is remembered by many as a warm-hearted and excellent 
man, a kind neighbor, and upright in all his dealings. 



FIFTH GENERATION. 41 

He was a farmer, and lived on the homestead. After his de- 
cease, it passed out of the name of the family, and since then the 
house has been taken down, and nothing remains to mark the 
locality but the old well, the cellar-hole, and the venerable shade- 
trees that surrounded the house. 

Married, June 7, 1792, Mary, daughter of Joshua and Mary (81) 
(Flint) Osgood, who was born Oct. 15, 1762, and died Nov. 1823.

(206) Rev. JACOB FLINT, 5th son of James (78), baptized 
Aug. 20, 1768, and died Oct. 11, 1835. 

He graduated at Harvard College in 1794, and studied theology 
under the direction of Rev. Eliab Stone, the pastor of his native 
parish. Shortly after finishing his studies, he received a call from 
the church in Cohasset, Mass., which he accepted, and on the 
10th of June, 1798, was ordained, which connection remained un- 
dissolved to the time of his death, a period of nearly forty years. 
A friend, who wrote his obituary, says : " He died suddenly, on 
Sunday, the 11th of October, in Marshfield, while on a labor of 
love to a young brother in the ministry. On Saturday afternoon 
he set out with his wife for Marshfield, and took tea in Scituate, 
and was unusually social and happy. When leaving the house, 
his friends accidentally alluded to the falling leaves of autumn, as 
emblematical of man's decay. Mr. Flint turned, and promptly 
said : ' There is nothing melancholy, in my mind, connected with 
the autumn. I have no gloomy ideas of death, and do not fear at 
all to die.' Sabbath morning he officiated with an uncommon 
interest, administered the communion, and walked to Mr. Leon- 
ard's house. The moment he entered the parlor, the summons 
came. He fell on his knees, then prostrating himself on his face 
as in humble acquiescence, instantly breathed his last, without a 
groan, a tear, or a convulsion. Happy death ! From the altar and 
communion below, he was translated to the blessed communion 
above. His death has left a wide chasm in Cohasset. As a 
husband, father, brother, and friend, he was all that could be

asked. Beloved in social life beyond most men, his people blessed 
him when he entered their doors. He was a good patriot, a well- 
read theologian, a faithful minister, and a pious Christian."

(209) Bev. JAMES FLINT, D. D., 6th son of James (78), 
born in North Reading, Dec. 10, 1779, and died in Salem, March 
4, 1855. 

The following obituary of Dr. Flint is taken from the Salem 
Gazette : 

" He was a graduate of Harvard University, in the celebrated 
class of 1802. After spending a few years in the instruction of 
youth, he prepared himself for the ministry with Rev. Dr. Bates, of 
Dedham, and, upon finishing his studies, received a call from the 
church and society in East Bridgewater, Mass., which he accepted, 
and was ordained on the 29th of October, 1806. This connection 
was dissolved in the month of April, 1821, at his own request. 
Soon after, he received from the East Society, in Salem, an invi- 
tation to settle with them in the ministry, which he accepted, and 
on the 19th of September, 1821, was installed pastor of the 
society. He soon acquired the reputation of a highly attractive 
preacher, which he sustained to the last of his public services. 
He was a man of the most extensive and varied culture. As a 
scholar, a preacher, a poet, and a critic, he was eminent and dis- 
tinguished. Some of his hymns and occasional odes will long be 
remembered and used, on account of their singular beauty and 
felicity of expression. He was a valued citizen, and his loss will 
be felt beyond his immediate parishioners. In more than one 
entire generation, he has been a respected and beloved member 
of our community ; and his familiar presence, genial conversation, 
and ready aid in every good work, will be sadly missed by old and 
young." 

Married, Oct., 1805, Lydia Harriet Deblois. 
Nine children.

(240) Capt. HEZEKIAH FLINT, 3d son of Samuel (89), born 
in South Danvers, Jan. 31, 1766; died Sept. 22, 1818. 

Master-mariner, and Hved in South Danvers, on a farm, a part 
of which was formerly the homestead of the patriarch Thomas (1). 
In early hfe he quit the occupation of a farmer, to engage in the 
more active employment of a sea life ; and by his intelligence and 
energy, soon rose to be a master-mariner and owner. The follow- 
ing incident in his life, copied from the Salem Gazette, may not 
be uninteresting : 

" Capt. Flint, in the schooner CyntJiia, arrived on Saturday (Dec. 
6, 1794). He sailed from here about the last of September, touched 
at all the English Windward Islands, and proceeded for Hispaniola, 
in sight of which he was captured by a Bermudian privateer, who 
put on board eight men, and took out the mate and three seamen 
belonging to the schooner. Eleven days afterwards, one of the 
Bermudians, who had been ill-treated on board the privateei', in- 
formed Capt. Flint of his wish to retake the vessel, which being 
agreed to, the next morning, about four o'clock, the cai)tain, the above 
Bermudian, and two others, took possession, confined the prize- 
master and men in the cabin, and brought her to Martha's Vine- 
yard. From the time they retook the vessel (a period of fourteen 
days) till their arrival at the Vineyard, they did not go below, but 
slept on deck." 

Having acquired a sufficient competency, he retired from the 
sea, and spent the remainder of his days in the quiet enjoyment 
of his farm and family. The following obituary is taken from a 
Salem paper: 

"At Danvers, suddenly, Capt. Hezekiah Flint. Society has 
great reason to mourn the death of this excellent and highly use- 
ful citizen. Possessing an enterprising mind and generous soul, 
he was always actively engaged in promoting the best interests of 
his fellow-beings. Favored by fortune with a competency of

v/ealth, he employed it injudicious plans of improvement. Although 
so valuable as a public citizen, it was in the domestic circle that 
his virtues were most conspicuous. Intelligent, cheerful, and affec- 
tionate, his presence enlivened and charmed all around him. Those 
only who saw him at ' his own fireside,' can rightly appreciate his 
worth. By these his loss will ever be deeply lamented. To his 
amiable and disconsolate family his sudden departure is most 
afflicting. But we forbear to speak of griefs, which it is not in the 
power of language to express. To that religion which their de- 
parted friend so highly valued and so uniformly regarded, must 
they look for consolation."

(Page) Putnam, who was born Oct. 5, 1769, and died Feb. 28,

SIXTH GENERATION. 65 

Tlie following obituary is copied from the Farmington Clironicle : 
"In Farmington, IStli inst., Dr. Thomas Flint. In the death of 
Dr. Flint we are called upon to record the close of a long and 
useful life. Yet we feel that while he has passed to his final re- 
ward, the influence of his labors survive. His name will long be 
associated with the early moulding of the social, moral, and intel- 
lectual character of this community. In his profession, and espe- 
cially as a surgeon, he attained an honorable reputation ; and in 
the practical relations of life he was exemplary, industrious, and 
frugal. His religion was that of the heart, and displayed its in- 
fluence more in the social and moral relations of life, than in 
denominational zeal. He was ever ready to console and assist, 
and embraced every opportunity to do good."

at his own request, June 19, 1814, for the purpose of emigrating 
to the West. The following obituary was written by his kinsman, 
Rev. Dr. Fhnt: 

" Died, on Tuesday evening last, in North Reading, of a linger- 
ing and painful disorder, Timothy Flint, aged 60, well known in 
America, and on the other side of the Atlantic, as the author of 
various works, that have given him a rank among the most distin- 
guished writers of the country. Of a genius highly imaginative 
and poetical, he united with a vigorous intellect and discriminating 
judgment a quick sensibility and warm affections, a vivid percep- 
tion and enjoyment, a deep-felt and ever-grateful recognition of 
the author of the beautiful, grand, and lovely in nature — of the 
true and good, the elevated and pure, the brilliant and divinely 
gifted in human endowment and character — and possessed a rare 
felicity and power of embodying in glowing and appropriate lan- 
guage his impressions of the outward, and what he conceived and 
felt of the inward and spiritual world. During the brief period of 
seven or eight years in which he exercised his talent as an author, 
he wrote with a fecundity and frequency of publication scarcely 
surpassed by the prolific author of the Waveiiey novels. He left 
his residence on Pv.ed River, La., last May, in feeble health, hoping 
to derive benefit from the bracing air of the North. He came to 
his native place, where his disorder soon assumed symptoms of a 
speedy and fatal termination." 

His remains were deposited in Harmony Grove Cemetery, in 
Salem, where a monument has been erected over them, and the 
following lines, written by Rev. Dr. Flint, inscribed on it: 

" He painted on his glowing page 
The peerless valley of the West ;

ure of his acquaintance." His connection with St. John's Church

The following article tells how I came to publish the hymn 

"Shut In," a copy of which, with two other hymns, I send to you 

thinking you may like to give them to some one " Shut In " or 

" Called Aside." 

D. W. WALDRON, 

19 Congregational House, 

Boston. 

In visiting a hospital, I came to a room occupied by a suf- 
fering disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. She had long been an 
inmate of the institution, which is a shelter to many tempest-tossed 
mariners on the sea of life, and a resting-place to many weary 
with the discomforts of earth. I had enjoyed frequent interviews 
with this patient, and I had come to feel that this world was indeed 
to her " a valley of tears ; " and her life reminded me of the verse: 

" Is it true, O Christ in Heaven, 

That the wisest suffer most ? 
That the strongest wander farthest, 

And most hopelessly are lost ? 
That the mark of rank in nature 

Is capacity for pain, / 

And the anguish of the singer 

Makes the sweetness of the strain?" 

On the afternoon referred to, I found her quite discouraged. 
She seemed to be under the shadow of a dark cloud. " I don't 
want to live ; I am a burden to myself, and a care to my friends ; I 
can do no good in this world," she said. I assured her that by 
faith, patience, and submission she could glorify God as much as 
by active service. She then handed me the hymn entitled, " The 
Four Anchors." After reading the hymn, which I had not seen 
before, I said, " I have found a way in which you can do good. I 
will get some copies of this and circulate them in your name." 
During that week 1 sent a copy of the hymn to thirty aged or 
sick people, and have since scattered hundreds of them When 
I told her, at my next visit, what I had done, she was greatly 
cheered, and handed me another hymn — "Shut In." I bor- 
rowed the copy, and, being unable to learn who the author was, 
or to ascertain by whom it had been published, I immediately issued 
one thousand copies, soon after another thousand, and a few days 
since five thousand more. I am giving them to those "shut in."
