The preparation of the Loveland Genealogy for publication 
has been wholly the product of my leisure hours, and shows in a 
marked degree what may be done with spare moments of time. 
I cannot forbear in this connection to call the attention of the 
younger members of the Loveland family to the value of spare 
time. From the very nature of your occupations you must have 
much of it at your command, and a wise use of it may be the key 
that will give you access to the domain of thought and the treas- 
ures of the mind, and fit you to take prominent places among men 
and fill desirable and lucrative positions in life. All that d stin- 
guishes one man from another in this world may be explained by 
the way he uses his time, especially his spare time. Whatever be 
his station or following, as he uses his spare time so will he achieve 
success. The doors of science, literature and art will swing wide 
open at its magic touch and like an Elihu Burritt, while striking 
sparks from the anvil, he can be forging a name for the ages. 

The gathering of the material for these volumes, as is well 
understood, has been the jo'nt work of myself and associate, as- 
sisted by many kind relatives and friends. To our helpers we ex- 
tend our cordial thanks. The work was begun many years ago 
and prosecu'ed by the slow process of correspondence during the 
leisure hours of busy farm life. Those who are farmers will read- 
ily appreciate the situation. But fatigue and care were banished 
by the loving interest of our cousins in the work, and replies to 
their friendly messages beguilcd^ many a weary hour. To day a 
feeling of sadness comes over us. One by one they have passed 
to the other shore, and there are many, many silent pens. But all 
did their work well; they are embalmed in the shrine of our mem- 
ory and they will never be forgotten. The arduous task of 
arranging and preparing for the press their material is of the 
past and we will ever associate it with the memory of our faithful 

Prefatory Note, 

We have been unable in these vohimes to give more than the 
most condensed history of individuals and families. Brevity has 
necessarily been the watchword from the beginning to the end, 
especially in this closing volume. If all the matter sent us had 
been printed it would have required double the number of pages. 
It has been found necessary, therefore, to rewrite many of the 
sketches and condense many of the records. We think we have 
effected this abridgement without detracting from their value. 
We have found place for every Loveland family sent us, and nd 
allied family has been omitted from the records that has taken the 
least interest in them before their going to press. 

The work may not be as exhaustive as some could wish, but 
the means sent us would permit of no further extension. Those 
who have desired and expected an earlier appearance of these vol- 
umes must remember that your editor could give only his spare 
time to the collection of the material and the preparation of it for 
the press. This work has incurred on his part constant expense 
and has been a task requiring great patience and labor. Those of 
our correspondents who may have failed to receive prompt re- 
plies to their communications will readily see the reason and par- 
don the omission or delay. 

We have been informed by some of our correspondents that 
they hear there is great wealth in the Bank of England belonging 
to the descendants of the first Loveland who came to America, 
and asking us about it, and what steps they should take to prove 
their right to their portion of it. We reply : There is not one 
word of truth in the report, and we caution the unwary to be on 
their guard against the schemes of designing men, and pay no at- 
tention to their stories. 

In conclusion we take a genuine pleasure in feeling that our 
long years of labor are brought creditably to a close. If the 
work pleases you, we are content. If it begets in your children a 
feeling of pride for the name they bear and a moral and philo- 
sophical respect for their ancestors, we are satisfied. 

We have endeavored to make these volumes a full and trust- 
worthy history of the Loveland family in America, and we have 
probably succeeded so far as is possible in works of this nature.

considering the means at our command. Completeness, however, 
is impossible in a work of this character covering a period of time 
.of over two hundred and fifty years and with so many scattered 
familes and lost records, and, withal, when so many who could aid 
in the work are disinclined to do so. 

No doubt many errors will be discovered in these volumes. 
Friends will confer a favor by reporting mistakes and omissions 
at their earliest opportunity. 

To the many relatives and friends who have aided in collecting 
the materials for these volumes we are under lasting obligations, 
and we can but express the hope that we may yet have the pleas- 
ure of personally meeting the many excellent and interesting 
people whose courteous communications have given us a feeling 
of acquaintanceship and friendship towards them which will re- 
main a bright page in our memory. 

July 20, 1895. 


The p'-ints of the coat of arms given in this volume require a 
word of explanation. The one entitled the Norfolk Lovelands, is 
from the earliest home of the Lovelands in England, the city of 
Norwich, in the county of Norfolk. 

It is believed that the progenitor of the Lovelands in England 
came over with the Norman invaders, who marched and fought 
under the victorious banner of Wi'liam the Conqueror, in 1066. 
The surname Loveland is derived from the Manor of Loveland, 
Norfolk County, England. Family surnames do not date back 
much further than the latter part of the tenth century. They first 
came into use in Normandy and were introduced into England by 
the Norman adventurers, many of the followers of William taking 
theirs from their paternal chateaux. At a very early date the 
Lovelands migrated to different parts of the British Isles, and to 
America. The Norfolk coat of arms is thus described : 

Arms. Sable. Three boars' heads. 
Crest : A boar's heads couped. Sable. 
Motto: Sans Crainte (without fear). 

The London coat of arms owes its modification to the follow- 
ing record: *'A certain Richard Loveland, whose patronymic 
name was Oldershaw, by license of the queen had his name 
changed to Loveland, that he might use the Loveland arms in 
connection with those of Oldershaw, to agree with the will of his 
aunt. Miss Mary Ann Loveland. His mother's name was Harriet 
Loveland." By intermarriage the Oldershaw coat of arms is 
quartered with the Loveland. There is also a change of crest and 
motto: The uplifted sword arm taking the place of the boar's 
head, signifying, doubtless, service in war. The London coat of 
arms was sent us by Richard L. Loveland, of London, to whom 
they now belong. 

On pages 10 and 1 1, Vol. II, we have given the family records 
of the ancestors of him who sent us the coat of arms. Opposite

ture and refinement. 


Brigham City, Utah, Jan. 17, 1894. 
J. B. Loveland y Fremont ^ O.: 

Dkar Sir: — I enclose you herewith a brief sketch of my life taken from 
*'Ut€Ji, Her Men and Resources." If it would be of interest for your work, 
I could forward you a copper cut of myself and also a cut of our residence — 
the latter is a fair picture of our modern brick house, costing about 1 10,000. 
I do not suppose, however, you would care for these, unless it would prove 
of some interest to Eastern readers in consequence of both my wife and my- 
self being born of Mormon parents. It may not be uri interesting to you to 
know that our people take great interest in the matter of genealogy. My 
father, Lorenzo Snow, born in 1814, at Mantua, Ohio, and whose father 
came from Vermont, has published a genealogical record and biography. 
It is not my purpose to recommend any of our religious beliefs to you, but 
as you have worked so assiduously under discouraging circumstances it 
may, perhaps, interest you to know a little of our ideas on this one subject. 
We believe that an All Wise Creator has instituted certain ordinances in His 
church to be administered by His appointed servants, among which is bap- 
tism; that one of his irrevocable laws is, that no man can enter into the 
highest state of perfection without obedience to this ordinance, but, as many 
billions of people have died without this knowledge, He has provided a way 
whereby this ordinance can be done by proxy — vicarious baptism, as the 
Savior died for others, vicarious death — ^so the children now and hereafter 
living upon this earth can go into the temples (four of which are now com- 
pleted ) and be baptized for their dead ancestors. Simultaneous with the 
building of these temples came a movement in the United States, England 
and elsewhere, to gather up genealogical records which is and will prove a 
great help in the work above referred to. The temple at Salt Lake averages 
seven hundred baptisms daily for those who have gone before. I hope I 
have not wearied you. You will thus see that we think an unseen power 
has been at work and that yourself witli many others are but blind instru- 
ments of Providence, in assisting to carry out some of his mighty purposes. 
Many think — you may think — this only a superstition, but you will find out 
some day — very likely in the hereafter — that all this work — temple work, 
etc. — has not been altogether in vain. I remain. 

Yours truly, A. H. Snow. 


"Our family with two others, Smith and Kimberly, came from 
Cngland. Loveland died on the passage. He was supercargo, 
and Smith and Kimberly were in his employ. Smith, Kimberly 
and the Widow Loveland and her three sons came to America. 
They together bought land of an Indian chief, the tribe assenting. 
When the land was surveyed some lay in what is now Glaston- 
bury and some in Wethersfield, Connecticut. The Widow Love- 
land^s land lay on each side of the Connecticut River. One of 
Mrs. Loveland's sons settled in Wethersfield, the other in Glas- 
tonbury. The third son was drowned in the Connecticut River 
ivhen passing from one side to the other. He died unmarried. 
The other two married." 

The above traditions of the origin of the Lovelands in this 
country was given us by L. H. Loveland, Brighton, Ohio, in his 
life time. Essentially the same has reached us from many other 
sources widely separated. Our first ancestors in this country were 
undoubtedly English, and the admixture of Scotch, Irish and 
Welsh blood in the family came in after the family began to mul- 
tiply on American soil. The Widow Loveland and her sons were 
of the first settlers of Wethersfield, coming here in 1635. ^^ 
find Kimberly at Dorchester at this time. 

Tradition is not clear as to the names of the Widow Loveland's 
sons. Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary, helps us out by gi\- 
ing four by the name of Loveland. This work was very search- 
ing and claims to be a complete record of all the first settlers in 
New England for three generations. The quotation below, there- 
fore, no doubt, includes all the first Lovelands in this country: 


"Robert, Boston, 1645, a witness to a deed; may have removed 
to Connecticut; was taxed in New London, 1666; had four years 
before a lawsuit with Bigot Eggleston, of Windsor, about hides to 
be tanned. 

12 The Loveland Genealogy. 

"John, Hartford, died 1670; had a wife and probably children, 
but no more is known; perhaps the family was perpetuated at 

"Widow Loveland, pursued a remedial action for trespass, 
1649. Samuel Gardiner for himself, Thomas Edwards and 
Widow Loveman against Osman, defendants, in an action of tres- 
pass; damages £\, — (Colonial Records, Sept. 16, 1649.) 

"Thomas, Wethcrsfield, 1670; proposed for Freeman that year; 
had a grant of land 1674; perhaps ten years later was of Hartford." 

We have discovered the source from whence Savage drew the 
above information, and we are convinced that he has given us the 
traditional family. Thomas, no doubt,^qualified him«elf to use the 
right of suffrage as soon as the law would permit. This would 
?i^ the date of his birth in 1649. ^^ Robert and John we recog- 
nize the sons of Widow Loveland. From public records we learn 
that Robert died in 1668, and John in 1670, both old men. It is 
quite certain that after their death Thomas was the only one in 
America bearing the name of Loveland. He was doubtless born 
here and is the American progenitor of the Loveland family in 
this country. We take our count from him and all the families in 
these volumes are his descendants. But whose son was he? 
John's or Robert's? To settle this qu<?5tion it will be necessary to 
give a brief portion of their history. The names found in the suit 
of Widow Loveman and in John Loveland's inventory, their farms 
being near the Hartford line, renders it probable that with the ex- 
ception of Robert they all lived in the same vicinity. John Love- 
land appears to be a renter of land at the time of his death, having 
a part of his goods in his own house in Hartford and a part in the 
house of Mr. Edwards in Glastonbury. Thomas appears on the 
inventory as debtor and creditor to the estate. John was compar- 
atively a poor man. His whole estate was willed to his wife, no 
mention being made of children. It is doubtful whether he had 
any living at the time of his death. 

Tradition carries Robert to the Connecticut Valley on his ar- 
rival in this country. His advanced age at the time of his death 
would lead us to believe he was at least thirty-five years of age 
when his father died. He probably had much to do with the dis-

posal of the cargo when tlie ship reached Boston or Dorchester. 
Though tradition assigned this work to Smith and Kimberly, yet 
he certainly must have had an oversight of it, and thus in a meas- 
ure qualified himself f(^ that calling which was the principal busi- 
ness of his subsequent life. He doubtless soon tired of his sur- 
roundings in their new wilderness home and sought occupation on 
the sea. The deed that he witnessed in Boston does not show him 
to have been a resident of that town, but from Calkins' History of 
New London, Connecticut, we learn that he was mariner and 
trader from Boston, 1658. Calkins gives a lengthy report of this 
energetic and enterprising man. After his retirement from the sea 
he made New London his home, and died there. His name is 
frequently mentioned in the public lecords of Connecticut, and he 
had the reputation of being a rich man; but the assignment of his 
property, which was of the nature of a will, to satisfy the demands 
of his creditors, would indicate that he had been unsuccessful. 
"In May, 1660," says Calkins, "the ship Hope, from Malaga, in 
Spjin, came into this harbor with a cargo. Robert Loveland was 

Tradition says Robert Loveland married. But we find no 
mention of a wife in any public record. This leads us to think 
that she may have died before he began his seafaring life. In 
fact her death may have been the principal cause of his taking to 
the sea. If he had had children what would have been more nat- 
ural than to have left them with his mother? We find Thomas 
in the vicinity of this mother, and for aught we know he was an 
inmate of her home. We now come to the question: Whose son 
was he? John's or Robert's? One of the well authenticated tra- 
ditions in our family is that we take our descent from the super- 
cargo. But there were two supercargos, father and son. The 
father died on the passage. Other facts bear on the question; 
Among the early family names we find the name of the ship of 
which Robert was supercargo; soon after Robert's death Thomas 
came into notice as quite a landholder; and the names of his sons 
— Robert, Thomas, John and Samuel. Robert, the oldest, was 
probably named in honor of his father, Thomas after himself, and 
John and Samuel after his uncles. It was a great fad in those 

14 TAe Loveland Genealogy, 

days to perpetuate family names. Thomas* probably married in 
1674, when he received the grant of land. 

We have exhausted the space allotted to this summary. Those 
who would learn more of the early history of the Lovelands in 
this country must consult our first and second volumes. We now 
repeat what we know of our American ancestor, 


We first find him in Wethersfield, now Glastonbury, Connect- 
icut. It IS recorded of him that he owned land in the "First Pur- 
chase" by the town, previous to 1670. This purchase was made 
in 1636. As the Indian grants to the individual settlers were in- 
cluded in the First Purchase, it gives color to the tradition cf L. 
H. Loveland, that the Widow Loveland and her three sons bought 
lands of the Indians on the Connecticut River. The name of his 
grandfather, -^ ho "died on the passage to this country," is a mat- 
ter of conjecture. But in accordance with English custom, it was 
probably that of his oldest son. The earliest home of the Love- 
lands in England is believed to be the city of Norwich, in the 
county of Norfolk. Lovelands lived in Norfolk County at a very 
early date, and at a very early date they migrated to different 
parts of the British Isles, and to America. Thomas Loveland 
was made Freeman of Wethersfield in May, 1670, by the Court at 
Hartford. — (Colonial Records, p. 132.) 

Before a member of society could exercise the right of suffrage, 
or hold any public office, he must be made a Freeman by the Gen- 
eral Quarterly Court. To become a Freeman he was required to 
produce evidence that he was a respectable member of some Con- 
gregational Church. Previous to 1670, however, this regulation 
was- modified by Royal Order, so that individuals could be made 
Freemen by obtaining certificates from clergymen acquainted with 
them, that they were correct in doctrine and conduct. But Thomas 
Loveland was an ardent supporter of the church and an influential 
member of the one in the society where he lived. All applicants 
to become Freemen were required to take the Freeman's Oath. 
(For oath see N. E. Gen. Reg. for 1849, p. 41.) In 1673 he was 
assessed to pay "Indian Purchase of 5,000 acres" on the east side 


Summary, 15 

of the Connecticut River, one-half p>enny per pound assessment, 
amounting to three shillings and four pence. This would make 
the assessed value of his real estate at this time ahout 80 pounds, 
and in 1674 he was granted by the town the last of the four score 
acre lots (lot 44) included in the "First Survey" of lands in Con- 
necticut. The lands bought by the town included in these two 
purchases were distributed to the inhabitants of the town from 
time to time. In volume 4 of the Land Records we find that the 
first division of the above lands (5,000 acres) was made April 28, 
1 70 1, by a committee from Wethersfield, Thomas Loveland receiv- 
ing No. ID, containing 120 acres. At other times thereafter he re- 
ceived various other grants of land in Glastonbury. One of spec- 
ial mention was 60 acres "for his good services in erecting the 
meeting house in 1693." We never made an exhaustive search to 
ascertain what disposition was made of his lands. From the Glas- 
tonbury Records of Deeds we quote the following: "Thomas 
Loveland, Sen., to his son, John Loveland, in consideration of ntit- 
ural effection, five acres including house; dated 1707, acknowledged 
Nov. 8, 1708. Thomas Loveland, Sen., to his grandson, Thomas 
Loveland, Jun., and his sons Robert and John Loveland, 100 
acres; John Loveland to have one-half, or 50 acres, Thomas 25 
acres adjoining John, and Robert the remainder, 25 acres; dated 
17 16, acknowledged Sept. 10, 1716." He must have died within 
a few years after making this deed. We have been unable to iden- 
tify him previous to 1670, or to find a record of his marriage, or a 
record of the settlement of his estate. 

The Glastonbury Centennial gives the family records of five 
of his children. Of the others, Thomas is proved to be his son 
from deed records, and Samuel because there was no other Love- 
land in Connecticut at the time of his birth old enough to be his 
father, and the date of his birth makes him contemporary with the 
children of Thomas. In the family record we place these names 
last, though we have re.ison to believe that Thomas and Robert 
were the oldest sons. The exact order is uncertain. Children

THOMAS2 LOVELAND, JuN (Thomas^). After 1723 
he became Thomas, Sen. He m ist Eunice House, sister of Wil- 
liam who m Hannah^ Loveland (see Glas. Cen., p. 191). The 
names of Eunice's children do not appear on the Glastonbury 
records. A child of theirs was baptised (name not given) Oct. 
23, 1692, in the First Church, at Hartford, Conn. There was a 
division of the church on the east and west sides of the river about 
this time. This may account for the nonappearance of Eunice's 
children on the Glastonbury records. The Probate records give 
us one of her children, Thomas, who was chosen, in 1725, guard- 
ian of his brother Joseph. There is a strong probability that 
John*, who m Ruth Chapman in Say brook, Nov. 18, 1730, was 
her son, and we feel quite certain she had a daughter, Eunice*, 
and other children. Eunice probably died about 1701. Who his 
second >vife was is unknown. He had granted to him in 17 13, by 
the town of Glastonbury, 36 acres of land. Afterwards he re- 
ceived other grants from the town. The Probate records at Hart- 
ford give the probable time of his death, and the ages and names 
of his ininor children. Guardians were appointed for them in 1725. 
Elisha chose Thomas Welles; Mary, Benjamin and Elizabeth 
chose David Hollister, and Joseph chose his brother Thomas. 
These appointments would indicate that he died in 1725. Chil-

i8 The Loveland Genealogy, 


Vol. X, p. icxd: Elisha Loveland, a minor about i6 years of 
age, of Glastonbury, choses Thomas Welles as guardian, which 
court allows. 

This court appoints David HolHster, of Glastonbury, to be 
guardian unto Mary Loveman, minor, about 1 1 years of age; Ben- 
jamin Loveland, minor, about 9 years of age, and Elizabeth Love- 
land, a minor, about 2 years of age. Children of Thomas Love- 
man, Jr., late of Glastonbury. 

This court appoints Thomas Loveman, son of the above named 
Thomas Loveman, to be guardian unto his brother, Joseph Love- 
man, a minor, about 13 years of age, and his sister, Sarah Love- 
man, a minor, about 4 years of age.— -Dated 1725. 

Mary Loveland, dau. of Thomas Loveland, m Samuel Hodge, 
Jr., in 1748, and had three children, (G. C, p 196.) 

William Dinsmore was son-in-law to Thomas Loveland, but 
which dau. he m we do not know. Thomas Loveland gave him 
land in 1739. (G. C, p. 19S.) 

Eunice probably m Richard Keeney and had: Mary Keeney, m 
Samuel Bidwell, Jr., Dec. 22, 1720; Richard and Thomas Keeney, 
to whom their father gave land, 1626 and 1630. 

Sarah* probably m Israel French, Sept. 11, 1739. At mar- 
riage she was of Seymour, a part of Derby, Conn. He was 
among the early settlers of Seymour, b there Oct. 8, 1709. They 
had nine children. — N. E. H. and Gen. Reg., 1890, p. 369. 

THOMAS* LOVELAND (Thomas^, Thomas> ) was b at 
Glas., Conn., about 1700, d at Marlborough, Conn., Nov. 29, 1795, 
in the 96th year of his age. He was probably twice married; m 
1st in Glastonbury, Oct. 17, 1721, Elizabeth, dau of Richard 
Keeney. Benjamin, son of Alexander Keeney, who d in Glaston- 
bury, 1680, left seven children, of whom Richard was the young- 
est, being then six years of age. Thomas Loveland probably 
married for his second wife Naomi Taylor. We have been un- 
able to identify but four children who were born in Glastonbury. 
He probably had others.

In Glas. Fam. Rec, Book A., p. 46: "Thomas Loveland, Jr., 
and Elizabeth Keeney, dau. of Richard Keeney, were married 
Oct. 17, 1721." 

In Deed Book 5: "Thomas Loveland and his wife Naomi, 
Hepler Taylor and his wife Abiel, to Josiah Benton ; consideration 
£451. Dated June 13, 1743." 

Again, Deed Book 5: "Thomas Loveland, of Hartford, to 
Richard Keeney, Jr., of Glastonbury; consideration .£350. Dated 
Feb'y 15, 1742-3." This deed is probably made to his brother- 

Glastonbury Centennial: "Thomas Loveland, son of Thomas 
Loveland who was grandson of the original settler Thomas Love- 
land, m Mary White, dau. of Joseph White." 

Deed Book 7, p. 258: "Thomas Loveland to his son, Israel 
Loveland. May 11, 1767." 

The mother of Israel Loveland was probably Naomi Taylor, 
as the name of his first child is Naomi, and of his second Dinah — 
named for his mother and wife, probably. 

Land Records, Hartford, Vol. 5, p. 692: "Grant by the town 
of Hartford to Thomas Loveman on the east side of the Conn. 
River, by the Commissioners, to lay out three miles next to Bol- 
ton, 4 ch. 89 1. wide. Distribution, July 7, i73i«" 

"Lands of Thomas Loveland, his heirs and assigns. This may 
certify this 29th March, 1729, at the request of Thomas Loveland, 
did survey and lay out to him 28 acres and |, it being the said 
Loveland's father's proportion of the 6,ocx) acres of land granted 
by the town, Dec. 23, 1723. Signed: Thomas Wells, Thomas 

20 The Loveland Genealogy, 

We see by above that Thomass Loveland settled or lived 
within the bounds of Hartford and received a grant of land from 
the town, July 7, 1731. He sold out to Richard Keeney, Jr., his 
brother-in-law, for X350, Feb'y 15, 1742 3, and moved to Hebron 
as the 28 acres and \ granted to his father by Glastonbury Com- 
mons, in 1723, and to him as the representative of his father 
Thomas* estate, March 29, 1729, lay next to Hebron bounds. 

Glastonbury Records: "Thomas Loveland to Job Riley, con. 
JC300, 25 acres and dwelling house. March 12, 1740-1." 

To William Dinsmore, from his father (probably father-in- 
law), Thomas Loveland. Release of interest in land given by 
town to Joseph Strickland. Jan'y i, 1738-9. — D. B. 4, p. 320. 

Job Riley, of Glastonbury, conveys 42 acres. March 12, 1740. 

Deed Book 5, p. 125: "Thomas Loveland to his brother Ben- 
jamin. Nov. 22, 1744." 

Deed Book 4, p. 272: "Thomas Loveland to his brother Eli- 
sha;con. JC7. Oct. 10, 1737." This was about the time Elisha 
was married. 

There were Thomas Lovelands in the Rev. War (see Conn. 
Roster), but we are unable to divide the honors as there were sev- 
eral of that name in Conn, of suitable age during the war.

THOMAS* LOVELAND ( Dca. Thomas* ) was b at Hebron, 

Conn., March 13, 1750, d probably in Northfield, Mass., Feb'y 9, 
1812; m probably at Gilead, Conn., previous to 1774, his cousin, 
Jerusha Loveland. There is a little obscurity about the descendants 
of Thomas^ Loveland. We find no record of his marriage. Dea- 
con Thomas and Robert Loveland's families of Hebron were 
neighbors and the descendants of both emigrated to the vicinity of 
Greenfield, Mass., as we find descendants of both in this vicinity. 
From an old clergyman's book of Greenfield we take the follow- 
ing, which we be believe pertains to Thomas* Loveland: "Thomas 
Loveland and his wife received into the church. May 8, 1774, from 
the church in Gilead. Thomas, son of Thomas Loveland, d June 
20, 1778. Thomas, son of Thomas Loveland, bab. March 28,

tion and early in life was apprenticed to a Mr. Tweed in N. Y. 
City, who afterwards was known as Boss Tweed, of Tammany 
fame. His mother was a very devout and conscientious woman 
and early impressed upon him the importance of an honest and up- 
right life. The history of his life shows that her seed was sown 
on good ground. In the fall of 1846 he enlisted in the N. Y. 
Vols., under Col. Stevenson. This regiment made its memorable

trip around Cape Horn and arrived in San Francisco, then but a 
village, in the spring of 1847. The discovery of gold held him in 
this State. After the close of the war he spent seven months in 
the mines. Making about $6,000 in the mines he returned east, 
invested in a drove of cattle and horses which he bought on his 
way up the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers from New Orleans. 
He crossed the plains with them in 1850. His diary across the 
plains shows a remarkable trip. Fights with the Indians, alkali 
water, thirst, incessant and weary watching, and the weary march, 
all got in their work. He settled in Santa Clara Valley. Here 
he married Mrs. Barney, a widow with two sons. This lady, 
whose maiden name was Catharine Davis, crossed the plains with 
her parents in 1850. She was young and a typical farmer's daugh- 
ter. She was a splendid horseback rider and could ride the wild- 
est colts. She was also an expert at driving teams, managing a 
team of six horses for days at a time. She bore Mr. Loveland six 
children. She was a hard working woman, and competent to 
take charge of outdoor work in her husband's absence, which she 
often did. Her main ambition in life was to build up a comfort- 
able home and educate her children, of which she fully saw the 
necessity. Having a stroke or paralysis she now (1894) leases the 
farm, but lives upon it, cared for by her two unmarried daughters. 
When Mr. Loveland grew old a desire to travel seized him. He 
spent a year in Europe, visiting England, France, Scotland and 
kissed the Blarney stone in Ireland. Afterwards he went east 
again and died in N. Y. City. He was a well read man, and 
though not ranking high in the literary world, yet had some merit 
as a poet. He was a strong Republican, and he and his wife 
Methodists. — A. C. L. Children born in Santa Clara:

' Hon. Ralph Andrus Loveland passed his boyhood at West- 
port. During the season of navigation he devoted his time to 
boating on Lake Champlain, Cham plain Canal and Hudson 
River; his winters attending the Essex Co. Academy, of which 
Mr. Orson Kellog, who was known far and wide as an educator, 
was Principal. An institution from which many students have 
graduated and become eminent. Among them was the late T. D. 
Shedd, D. D., of New York City. The pursuits of his early life 
gave him an insight into and a lively interest in the matter of 
water transportation, and it had an influence upon his later career. 

In 1845 he consolidated the interests he had personally ac- 
quired with those of the Northern Transportation Line. In the 
year 1857 he, with others, engaged in the lumber business at Al- 
bany, N. Y., under the firm name of White, Loveland & Co. 
This proved a successful venture and was continued until 1863. 
His health having become impaired, he disposed of his eastern 
business in 1865 and removed to Janesville, Wisconsin. Here his 
ability was promptly recognized by his fellow citizens, and he 
was elected Mayor of that city. Mr. Loveland had previously 
visited the great West, however, and had secured valuable prop- 
erty in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. In 1862 he became im- 
bued with the spirit of wool-growing. He purchased four thous- 
and sheep in Michigan which he took successfully to Iowa in 
one year. Full particulars can be found in a book by Henry M. 
Randall, entitled "The Practical Shepherd." Soon he outranked 
all in the State in that line of business by the proportions of his

Having recovered his health he again embarked in the lumber 
business. This time the venture was made in Chicago, with part- 
ners residing in Albany and New York. The enterprise proved 
a successful one for five years, when a calamity overtook him 
caused through his eastern connections in business. It was as tre- 
mendous as it was unforeseen and unmerrited on his part. A 
failure occurred which created wide spread disaster among many 
noted firms, it was termed the nine million dollar failure, and Mr. 
Loveland was one of the greatest sufferers through this. Over 
three hundred thousand dollars of indebtedness was placed on his 
shoulders, and all of this misfortune was caused, not by his want 
of prudence — because he was prudent, thoughtful and careful — but 
by the unwisdom of others. Every part of his legitimate loss 
was paid in full or satisfactorily settled, leaving him without a 
dollar. Such a blow as this would have utterly prostrated many 
men. Here he was at the age of fifty-five years entirely bereft of 
a munificent competence, the result of a life time of effort and 
struggle; but instead of dismaying him, the disaster seemed to in- 
vest him with new vigor. 

In 1 88 1 he induced eastern gentlemen of large means to strike 
hands with him and purchase a large mill and salt block in Sag- 
inaw and nine thousand and two hundred acres of valuable pine 
lands which proved a very successful enterprise, and the firm is 
now (1894) known as the Saginaw Lumber and Salt Co., of 
which Mr. Loveland is the president and general manager, also 
one of the largest stockholders, whilst his sons and son-in-law, 
Rufus H. Roys, are engaged with him. He is quite as active and 
vigorous now in promoting the business as the younger blood. 

In 1856 he was elected to the Assembly from the Essex Co. 
(New York) District. At the expiration of his term he was re- 
nominated at the convention, but declined to accept. The Sena- 
torial District, which comprised Essex, Warren and Clinton 
Counties, was not slow to recognize his abilities and nominated 
him as Senator of that district, which elected him by a handsome 
majority* At the expiration of his senatorial term he did not seek 
further political preferment. He was originally a Henry Clay 
Whig in politics, but since the organization of the Republican 

The Loveland Genealogy. 

party he has been an active supporter of its men and measures, be- 
ing a thorough Protectionist so far as the industries of the United 
States are concerned. Mr. Loveland has been a member of the 
Baptist Church since 1840, and an officer in the church for many 

In 1840 he was married, his wife being Miss Harriet M. Kent, 
a daughter of Dan M. and Mehetahle Goodrich Kent. She was 
a woman of rare intelligence and refinement. Her Grandfather 
Kent, also a number of her uncles, were prominent Congregational 
ministers of New England. The names of her children are found 
in their place in these record';. In 1887, after many months of 
patient suffering, on the 23d of Dec, after every effort had been 
exhausted by travel and medical skill, she passed away surrounded 
by her husband and children. The fragrance of her hopeful 
Christian life will ever be sweet to those who knew and loved her 
so well. 

Since he became a resident of the Saginaw Valley, his home 
being in Saginaw, Mr. Loveland has not filled any public office, 
his time and his energy being engrossed by the responsible cares 
of his busines enterprises. He is known and esteemed for his 
beneficence and the interest taken in tho»e who are less fortunate 
than himself. Hts fellow citizens term him a Christian gentle- 
man. For a number of years Mr. Loveland has found it pleasant 
and profitable to spend his winters on the Pacific Coast, and thus 
be free to some extent from business cares. During a sojourn in 
California he formed the acquaintance of Miss Helen Crittenden, 
a woman of refinement and culture and a member of an old and 
highlv esteemed family, the result of which was their marriage in 
San Francisco on the 8th of March, 1S94. Mr. Loveland has re- 
sided in the city of Saginaw the last thirteen years and has kept 
pace with that progressive and enterprising city which has doubled 
Its population within the last few years, now numbering over sixty 

Mrs. H. M. K. Loveland writes from East Saginaw, March 1, 
1S83: "Dear Sir — I send you with this a copy of information that 
we received with the "Coat of Arms" from James Voher, luiti-

quarian and genealogist. ♦ ♦ ♦ I think the coat of arms ought 
to be copied. My daughter, Mrs. R. H. Roys, who is something 
of an amateur artist, thinks she shall take a copy for herself. * ^ 
My own maternal ancestors, Goodrich and Hollister, were from 
Wethersfield and Glastonbury, Conn. My grandfather's name 
was Elisha Hollister. He had a large family — twice married. 
My grandmother Lucy was the youngest of the first family. 
Among the names of her sisters were Mehetabel, Experience, 
Martha and Pamelia. A friend of mine in Boston, who m Sarah 
Loveland (See Vol. HI), has a complete record of the Good- 
riches. My grandparents were married in Connecticut and came 
from there 1785 and settled in Vermont. My stepmother 
(French) had a sister who married a Loveland." 

NoTB. — The Hollister referred to above was doubtless the 
greatgrandson of John Hollister, who was admitted a freeman of 
Wethersfield in 1643. He married Joan Treat. He d 1665; she, 
1694. Their son, John, Jr., married Sarah, daughter of William 
Goodrich, Jr., in 1667. Thomas, the son of John and Sarah, mar- 
ried Dorothe, daughter of Joseph Hill, 1696. They had a large

Mr. Elijah D. Goodrich, of Cambridge, died suddenly of ap- 
poplexy while attending worship yesterday morning at Shepard 
Memorial Church. The sad event happened while Rev. Dr. Mc- 
Kenzie was in the midst of his sermon. Mr. Goodrich was noticed 
to fall over on his wife's shoulder, and as soon as aware what had 
occurred many friends in the neighboring pews rushed to his as- 
sistance, and the service was interrupted. Death, hbwever, re- 
sulted in a few seconds and the deceased was soon afterward con- 
veyed to his home at 309 Broadway, Cambridgeport. Mr. Good- 
rich was 67 years of age and a native of Farmington, Conn. 
Since 1850 he had resided in Cambridge, where he was well 
known. He, with Mr. Horace Whitney, who died a few years 
ago, were the originators of the Dover Stamping Company, and 
when the firm subsequently passed into a corporation, Mr. Good- 
rich was made its first president, which office he held for many 
years. He retired from that business some fifteen or more years 
ago, since when he had devoted his time to real estate interests. 
His fter\*ic68 as an appraiser of and expert in real estate had been 
frequently sought after, and his judgment in that direction was 
always considered very reliable. Mr. Goodrich had been during 
his life a very active man in religious and missionary work, as 
well as very philanthrophic in a quiet and unostentatious way. 

5o The Loveland Genealogy. 

He was once the superintendent of the Steam's Chapel Mission, 
and also of the Prospect Street Sunday School. For the past 
eight years he had been a member of the Shephard Church. His 
love for mission work led him to bear the expense of supporting^ 
several missionaries in Turkey, and he was also a leading spirit in 
missionary work in Mexico when it was first begun. Previous to 
his going to Cambridge Mr. Goodrich had lived and done business 
in New York, Albany and Troy, marrying a lady of the latter 
city. His wife and one son, Mr. Charles Newton Goodrich, of 
Medford, survive him. His son has been associated with him in 
the real estate business for the past 15 years. — Boston Morning

Cambridgbport, March 14, 1883. 
Mr. George Loveland: 

Dear Sir: — Yours of July 9th would have been answered at 
an earlier date, but I have been exceedingly busy and have been 
away from home a part of the time since it came to hand. I en- 
close a copy of our Family Record as is found in my grandfather^s 
family Bible. I regret I cannot give you more information about 
the places of residence of my ancestors. My grandfather went 
from Glastonbury, Connecticut, to Manchester, Vermont, when a 
young man. He married Miss Honor Wolcott, of Tolland, Conn., 
and was a carpenter by trade. They united with the Congrega- 
tional Church in Manchester in 1804, and soon after he was ap- 
pointed deacon, which office he held until his death, Aug. 30, 
1838. He was an exemplary Christian, and his name is honored 
to this day by the residents of the town. He died of apoplexy. 
My father, Abner Loveland, was born in Manchester, and went 
to Troy, N. Y., when about seventeen years of age, was a clerk in 
a flour store and in a few years became one of the firm. He re- 
mained in the flour and milling business until his death, for over 
forty years. He was honorably identified with the business in- 
terests of the city and held many oflices of trust. His death was 
regretted by all who knew him. He died of consumption, Feb'y 
19, i860, and as a token of respect the millers and flour dealers in 
Xroy closed their places of business and attended his fqner^l ip ^ 

The L,oveland Genealogy, 51 

body. He was pronounced a model clerk, merchant and Chris- 
tian. He was an elder in the First Presbyterian Church for many 
years. He died as he had lived, a Christian. His last words 
were: "1 trust all in the hands of my Redeemer." 

My youngest brother, George Henry Loveland, was born in 
Troy and lived there until his death, which occurred only eight 
days after father's death. He died of consumption. He was in 
the flour business and gave evidence of business qualifications of a 
high order. He was a kind friend, an affectionate son, and a 
model young man in every walk of life. We need more like him.. 
His death was an exceedingly triumphant one, such as few are 
f>ermitted to witness. He was only twenty-four years of age and 
unmarried. My oldest brother, Horace Newton Loveland, is in 
business in Boston, in the manufacturing of tin and sheet iron 
goods, of the firm of Doon Stamping Company. He married 
Miss Annie Sampson White, of Boston, about twenty-eight years 
ago. He has no children, and when he is taken to another world 
I suppose this branch of the family, as far as the name is con- 
cerned, will become extinct. My only sister, Frances Amelia 
Loveland, died Nov. 5, 1844, of fever, aged seventeen years. She 
was in the graduating class in Troy Female Seminary. She was 
a fine scholar and an artist. Brother and I are in possession of 
many oil paintings of her work, which we prize highly. I mar- 
ried Elijah Decatur Goodrich, June 7, 1848. His ancestors also 
came from Glastonburv, Conn. We have had three children. 
Two, a son and a daughter, died in infancy. We have one son 
living, Charles Newton Goodrich. He is in business with his 
father in Boston ; was married to Miss Anna M. Grout, of Med- 
ford, Nov. 29, 1882. 

There are no other descendants of Asa Loveland living, except 
a son of Lucy Loveland who married Cyrus Munson, of Man- 
chester. His name is Loveland Munson and he is a lawyer of 
considerable ability. He is in possession of Asa . Loveland's fam- 
ily Bible, and it is through him I have received the record I en- 
close. I found my father's record was not complete. M37 hus- 
band's office is No. 7, Exchange Place. Our family residence is 
in Canibridgeport, where we have resided thirty years. In com

paring the record I send you with the one you sent, I notice a 
slight difference in dates, and in the list of names of the children of 
Thomas Loveland the name Abner is given in my record where 
you have written Thomas. The clergyman of Marlborough made 
several mistakes which I corrected before sending the record to 
you. I knew he was wrong, but this one puzzled me, as no 
doubt it did you. I am respectfully yours, 

Sarah Loveland Goodrich.

EAR Sir — Your letter of May 28th was received and the 
athy you expressed for those in affliction was appreciated, I 
; you. I did not know that you desired any facts about my 
Y more than I had given you. I certainly am very willing 
so if they will be of any use to you. I will say of my 
r, Oliver Loveland, that he was one of the best of men, an 
ht, consistent Christian man. He was very active in church 
, and was a leading spirit in the church with which he was 
rcted. He was a Methodist. He was an honor to his fam-

ily, and to any one bearing the name. My family have been urg- 
ing me to send you his photograph, that you might have it inserted 
in the book. 

Mv husband is not in anv active business, but finds his time 
fully occupied in attending to his personal affairs, and also in do- 
ing very much church work, such as attending meetings of differ- 
ent boards, etc. He is also connected with two banks, which also 
demands some of his time. He is a thorough Methodist, and a 
staunch Republican. I am also a Methodist. My son, Wilbur 
A. Welch, is just finishing his freshman year in Wesleyan Uni- 
versity, Middletown, Conn. My son Herbert and my son-in-law, 
Mr. Wilson, are Methodist preachers. Herbert went ' through 
Wesleyan University and graduated in 1887, having taken more 
prizes than have ever been taken by any one person. He then 
spent three years in the Drew Theological Seminary, at Madison, 
New Jersey. He graduated from there in 1890, and entered the 
ministry. He is now stationed at Summerfield M. E. Church, in 
Brooklyn, an important charge. Rev. J. O. Wilson, D. D., is also 
stationed in Brooklyn, at Simpson Church. He has a large church 
and is doing a fine work there. He is a graduate of Illinois 
Wesleyan University, and also graduated from Drew Theo- 
logical Seminary. I should have said that Herbert is a Prohibi- 
tionist and Mr. Wilson is a Republican. Minnie died near Brandt 
Lake, in what is known as the North Woods, a spur of the Adiron- 
dack Mts. She was killed in a runawav accident. She is buried 
in Woodlawn Cemetery, New York, where my father, mother 
and my son Oliver, who died two years ago, all lie. Hoping that 
I have not wearied you by the recital of all these facts, I am 

Truly yours, Mary L. Welch.

Frances W. Seeley, son of Ira O. and Sarah Loveland Seeley 
(84), was born in Ashtabula, O., April 12, 1837. His early edu- 
cation was obtained in the public schools. When he was nine 
years of age his parents removed to Marquette County, Wisconsin 
Territory, where his boyhood and youthful days were passed. In 
the summer of 1852 he, with his parents, removed to Minnesota 

He entered the regular army February 15, 1855, as private in 
Battery E, Third Artillery (Sherman's), and was promoted brevet 
second lieutenant Third Artillery, Sept. 19, i860; second lieutenant 
Fourth Artillery, Feb. 4, i86i; first lieutenant Fourth Artillery, 
May 14, 1861, and captain Fourth Artillery, July 11, 1864. He 
was on duty in the Adjutant General's office, Washington, D. C, 
from Feb. 21 to March, 1861, and joined Battery H, Second Ar- 
tillery, April I, serving with it at Washington, D. C, to April 5, 
1861, when ordered to Fort Pickens, Florida. Here the lieuten- 
ant served as adjutant general of the department under Col. 

66 The Loveland Genealogy. 

Harvey Brown from July, 1861, to Jan. 18, 1862, and was pres- 
ent at the action of Santa Rosa Island, Florida, Oct. 9, and bom- 
bardments of Forts McRae and Barrancas, Nov. 22, 1861, and 
Jan. I, 1862. 

He then left to join his own battery and regiment, which he 
served with at Washington City to March 10, when he took the 
field with the A.rmy of the Potomac, participating in the siege of 
Yorktown, Virginia; White Oak Swamp, Virginia, June 30, 1862; 
Malvern Hill, Virginia, July i, 1S62; Malvern Hill, August 5, 
1862; Fredericksburg, Virginia; Chancellorsville, Virginia, and 
Gettysburg, Penn., where he was twice wounded — having com- 
manded his battery in all the above engagements. On account of 
his wounds Lieutenant Seeley was forced to leave the field until 
August 15, 1863, when he rejoined the Army of the Potomac and 
commanded his battery to Oct. 1, i^>63. He was appointed regi- 
mental quartermaster and reported at Fort Washington, Md , re- 
maining on duty there until he resigned August 31, 1864. 

The following is an extract from the report of the Congres- 
sional Committee on the conduct of the war, Vol. i, p. 9, 1865 
series: **At the conclusion of the battle of Sunday, Capt. Seeley 's 
batter}-, which was the last battery that fired a shot in the Battle 
of Chancellorsville, had forty-five horses killed, and in the neigh- 
borhood of forty men killed and wounded; but being a soldier of 
great pride and ambition, and not wishing to leave any of his ma- 
terial in the hands of the enemy, he withdrew so entirely at his 
leisure that he carried off all the harness from his dead horses, load- 
ing his cannoneers with it; he even took a part of a set of harness 
on his own arm, and so moved to the rear." 

And from an extract from the oflFicial report of Major General 
Humphreys on the Battle of Gettysburg, and referring to the oc- 
casion of Longstreet's attack: "Seeley 's battery (K, Fourth U. S. 
Artillery) was placed at my disposal. ♦ ♦ ♦ The firing of 
Seeley's battery was splendid, and excited my admiration, as well 
as that of everv oflScer who beheld it. His loss in men and horses 
was heavy, including himself severely wounded." 

In Walker's "History of the Second Army Corps" his battery 
is mentioned in most favorable terms (referring to Malvern Hill): 

The Loveland Genealogy, fyj 

"The regular batteries of Kingsbury, Seeley and Ames, and the 
volunteer battery of Weeden, far surpassed the ordinary achieve- 
ments of artillery; they fairly smashed the artillery which the con- 
federates sought to bring into action; battery after battery on that 
side was driven from the field without being able to get a single 
shot out of one of their guns, while upon the daring infantry lines 
which pressed forward in the hope of carrying the crest, they 
rained a. fire which, for destructiveness, has seldom if ever been 
exceeded in the history of the war." In regard to Chancellors- 
ville: "One of General Sickle's batteries, K, of the 4th U. S., 
holds its post after all the infantry has passed to the rear, exchang- 
ing fire with the advancing enemy; only when these are close 
upon his guns does the gallant commander Seeley, condescend to 
retire, carrying along everything that might serve the enemy as a 

In "Historical Sketches of the U. S. Army", The regimental 
historian writes of his battery as follows: "May 3 it fought at 
Chancellorsville, losing Lieut. I.Arnold (Ordnance Department 
attached), wounded, and forty-four men and fifty-nine horses killed 
and wounded. It was in this battle on the height at Fairview, at 
the extreme left of the crest, while under the most terrific fire, that K 
Battery won the admiration of all who beheld it; and its record at 
Chancellorsville under Lieut. F. W. Seeley, that prince of battery 
commanders, must always form one of the brightest pages in the 
history of our field artillery. Its work may be equalled, but it 
cannot be surpassed." 

Capt. Seeley resigned Aug. 31, 186^, on account of physical 
disability resulting from wounds, since which time he has been a 
resident of Minnesota. He was recommended for several brevets, 
but his early separation from the service prevented action on them. 

His first business was entered upon as a merchant in Lake City, 
Minnesota, immediately after his resignation from the army. He 
was appointed postmaster there, serving for 12 years. For one 
term he was a member of the State Legislature. In 1S87 he re- 
moved to St. Paul, occupying the position of Adjutant-General of 
the State, with the rank of Brigadier General, for one term ( 18S7-8). 

He was married in 1863 to Emily C. Loveland of Ashtabula,

here some sixty years ago. He resided with his family upon the 

Tke Lovetand Genealogy. 69 

farm where he died more than fifty years. His life was marked 
by strict integrity. He early gave his adherence to the anti-slavery 
cause by contributing largely to further its ends. He was modest 
and unassuming. A friend and helper of the poor and oppressed. 
He was a Congregationalist and a practical Christian in every 
sense of the word. — E. G. 

Mrs. Laura Goodwin^ notice of whose death appeared in the 
Telegraph last week, came with her parents to Ashtabula in 
181 2. The place was then a little settlement containing but one 
framed house. The year following her marriage, they removed 
to their farm in Saybrook, where she has lived for sixty-four years. 
In her 85th year she pieced ten quilts giving the most of them to 
the needy. She brought up several motherless children. She was 
a tender mother and loving wife — beloved by all. One by one the 
old landmarks are taken away, and but few remain of the pioneers 
of Ashtabula. Mother Goodwin lived a long and useful life, and 
her deathbed testimony was that most of that life she tried to live 
a Christian. — E. G.

Ephraim Mathews deeded to Israel Loveland 120 acres of land 
in Grafton, Vt., in 1787. Israel moved to Gilsum in 1778. He 
resided at one time in Stoddard, N. H., and built a house there. 
Mrs. Pettee says he was in his 95th year when he died. His age 
is settled by the following records: For 1824, '25 and '26, Israel 
Loveland and his wife were bid off to be taken care of for $2.33 
per week. On March 5, 1827, Israel Loveland alone was bid off 
for 89 cents per week. This shows Dinah died in 1826, and as 
1827 is^the last time Israel was bid off he must have died that 
year.— rpROK. J. S. L.

Mahala Bill, b at G., Dec. 14, 1851. Dr. Loveland is a laborious 
student in his profession. He has made a careful study of the al- 
coholic habit and also of the various narcotic habits, and for several 
years has been receiving patients at his residence for his special 
treatment. In his researches he has discovered, as he verily be- 
lieves, the application and method of compounding a drug that 
acts as a specific in these habits and also as a specific in some func- 
tional nervous diseases. The Triple Gold Cure Company, of Gil- 
sum, of which Mr. Loveland is president, has recently (1894) been 
organized to systematically carry out his treatment of the alco- 
holic, morphine and tobacco habits. He claims the Triple Gold 
Cure treatment absolutely destroys the appetite for strong drink 
and for narcotic drugs. The cure is permanent and no bad re- 
sults are experienced during and following treatment. Mr. Love- 
land is a contributor to the best medical literature of the country.

After he had ceased general practice he would occasionally be seen 
going to visit a patient, and it was at once known that some one 
was dangerously sick, or old Dr. Loveland would not have been 
called. He was a ready writer of songs and composed many for 
special occasions, such as the 4th of July. He was an ardent patriot, 
and sent his two oldest sons into the army in the war of 1 8 1 2 . He 
was a Democrat of the old school of Jefferson, and a liberal in 
religion. At eighty his memory was so tenacious that he could 
beat his grandson, fresh home from college, conjugating Latin 
verbs. He was a good and able man. — Prof. J. S. L. Children

April 9, 1884, H. S. Loveland writes from San Francisco, 
California. "Dear Sir: On returning from the southern part of 
the State I found your circular in relation to the genealogy of the 
Loveland family. I have been so long on this coast that my recol- 
lections are becoming somewhat dim so far as dates are concerned. 
My oldest brother J. S. Loveland who res'des in San Bernardino,' 
in this State, has received your circular, and as he has had access 
to the family records much more recently than myself and withal 
somewhat of a literary man, you will doubtless receive from him 
all the particulars you desire. All the Lovelands I have ever met 
agree that the family came from Bradford, Yorkshire, England, 
and settled in Connecticut in very early days. My great grand- 
father went from Conn., and settled in the town of Gilsum, N. H,, 
more than a hundred years ago. He raised a numerous family. 

94 T^^ Loveland Genealogy, 

many of whom became prominent men in that section of the 
country. A grandson of his was for many years town clerk of 
Gilsum and the records of that town would furnish abundant 
information in regard to the family. My great grandfather's name 
was Israel, and the grandson mentioned above as well as his father 
were named Israel. My grandfather was Dr. Asher Loveland of 
Stoddard, N. H., and his eldest son Roswell was my father, who 
was drowned in Ogle county, III., in 1838. My father was dis- 
tinguished in the war of 1812. He was Orderly Sergeant of his 
company at the famous battle of Lundy's Lane and led the company 
into the battle and off the field at its close. He belonged to a regi- 
ment called the Bloody nth commanded by Col. McNeil who was 
for many years Collector of the port of Boston. McNeil was 
severely wounded and carried off the field early in the action. My 
father's company had been deploye«l as skirmishers and met the 
enemy in force, losing every commissioned officer, and more than 
half their number. My father, however, led the company into the 
fight and contributed largely to the success of that eventful day, 
which you will remember was won at the point of the bayonet. 
The Americans had been driven back from a battery planted on 
the hill where the monument now stands that commemorates the 
battle, when General Miller, also a New Hampshire man and a 
relative of our family on my mother's side, was asked the famous 
historical question by General Ripley, 'Can you take that battery ?' 
and made the equally famous reply, 'I'll try sir.' Divesting his 
men of everything but the naked steel he led them up the hill 
down which they had thrice been driven with fearful loss. When 
within about thirty feet of the guns my father observed a gunner 
about to apply the match. He immediately converted his musket 
into a harpoon, transfixed the gunner and before another could 
take his place the gun was in the hands of the- Americans and the 
fight \vas' won. I never heard my father speak of thi4 incklent, 
but I did hear it told in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains 
in 1849 by a man who was in the fight, but did not know that the 
son of the man he was describing was a listener. An uncle of 
mine, Samuel W. Loveland, was wounded in the early part of the 
battle and has been a pensioner ever since. My grandmother on 

T%e Laveland Genealog'y, 95 

my father's side was Mary Wright, a daughter of Major Wright 
of Stoddard, N. H., an officer of the French and Revolutionary 
wars, and grandfather of Silas Wright the famous New York 
statesman. My mother was Lucinda Stevens from the same family 
as the late Thad. Stevens, well remembered statesman of Penn. 
Her mother's family was from the celebrated Scotch Irish stock 
that escaped from the siege of Londonderry, during the Catholic 
Rebellion and settled the town of Londonderry, N. H. From this 
stock came the Morrisons, Wilsons, Millers, Starks, Greeleys, 
Sullivans, McNeils, and many others whose names adorn the history 
of the whole country as well the 'Old Granite State.' My ances- 
tors on both sides were remarkable for longevity. I had the 
pleasure of seeing all four of my great-grandfathers, great-grand- 
father Loveland having obtained the advanced age of 104 years. I 
should be glad to write to you more at length for I am proud of 
the Lovelands. I have never heard of one who was a sneak or a 
coward. Few of them ever become rich . The trickeries of money 
getting do not seem congenial to them, and they usually entertain 
and express very positive opinions which is not conducive to money 
getting, but many of the name as you have doubtless learned have 
been men of very distinguished intellectual ability, and I have yet 
to learn of one who has ever been convicted of violating the laws 
of his country. I shall be glad to hear of your progress in this 
matter and hope to see the result of your labors. You will doubtless 
expend much time and means, and I should be pleased to contribute 
so far as necessary my share of the expense as I expect much 
pleasure in the result of your labors. I came to California Aug. 9, 
1844. Vote the straight Republican ticket, am opposed to Chinese 
emigration, and hope to see Blaine the next President."

times for President, the last time for Cleveland and Thurman. 
He has always voted the Democratic ticket. He was a successful 
teacher in early life, has been town clerk of Nelson, N. H., several 
years since he was 80 years old. He now (1889) is in his 94th 
year,' reads without glasses and goes out on the lakes and captures 
five and six pound bass as easily and readily as a young man. His 
standing in the community is evidenced by the fact that he is uncle 
to them all, all calling him Uncle Sam. He was wounded early 
in the Battle of Bridgewater, and some of the British lead has 
never been extracted from his arm. He has always been a fine 
song singer and was a member of the band when discharged from 
the Army. — J. S. L.

1846 to Mobile where he kept hotel. After his first wife's death 

he followed the sea for some years. After his second marriage 

he went to Calcutta and kept a shipping office. He made three 

voyages around the world ; was a man of pleasing address and of 

most excellent memory ; was an interesting talker, and his fund of 

anecdote and incidents of history and travel made him a welcome 

addition to many a social circle. On the subject of fishing he was 

authority. This was a sport of which he was very fond, and he 

indulged in it to within a few weeks of his death. — Nellie L.

dau. of Joseph* and Sarah Chapman, b at S., March 16, 1713. 
The book of the Locks gives her birth March 6, 17 13, and her m 
Nov. 18, 1730. The Say brook record gives her m Nov. 18. The 
above record is from the 'Chapman Family," p. 43. The Say- 
brook record gives the date of birth of the first two children. We 
can find no record proving Ziba and Titus to be their children. 
We have made an exhaustive search of the Town Records of Say- 
brook and adjoining towns. They are doubtless natives of Say- 
brook. We can find only one married man there by the name of 
Loveland at the time of their birth. Our conclusion is they are 
the sons of John*. Children born at Saybrook:

Mr, /. B, Loveland: 

DsAR Sir: — You see, Mr. Loveland, we have had great 
trouble in the deaths of three of our children by diphtheria, taken 
so soon, that is in such a short period of time. Gracie, our dear 
little babe, so sweet and good, was first taken from us. We 
thought it was so hard to bear. She was a lovely child and such 
a sweet little singer, only two years old when she died. In one 
short week the Lord took another, Nora, the light of our home, so 
pure, so good. We thought we could never give her up, but the 
Lord knew what was best for us, so we had to part with her. 
She was loved by all. The same night she died, Mark, our boy, 
just commencing to make a start in his studies, was taken sick and 
in a few days he too was taken from us, and oh how desolate and 
lonely it left us; no one can tell only those who have gone through 
such trials. But what we know not now we shall know hereafter. 
I should be pleased to hear from you again, as you seem like an 
acquaintance. Yours respectfully, 

Mrs. Daniel Loveland.

Mr. Dungan engaged in farming, having located in one of the 
most fertile sections of Humbolt County, and out of the wilderness 
carved one of the most productive and valuable farms in the val- 
ley, which was worked under his individual supervision until it 
was leased for dairy purposes upon his removal to this city. He 
also was anoong the first to engage in salmon fishing, and con- 
tributed largely toward establishing that industry, in this county. 
He also for many years owned and operated the lower ferry across 
Eel River, which will probably be always known as Dungan's 

He early took a prominent position in the enterprise and devel- 
opment of the county and was conspicuous in the political councils 
of his party. He was one of the three supervisors of the county 
for several years, commencing in 1857. Soon after removing to 
Eureka he was appointed Police Judge to fill the vacancy occa- 
sioned by the death of Judge Sevier, and also Justice of the Peace. 

Judge Dungan was a man of sterling integrity and most hon- 
orable record. He was respected by all who knew him during the 
quarter century of his residence here. He was endowed with a 
just, candid mind, which, with his wide information and practical 
knowledge, inspired the confidence and esteem of his fellow men. 
He was a kind and faithful husband, an affectionate father and an 
obliging neighbor. 

Four brothers and one sister survive him. Three oi the broth- 
ers, G. W., John and Thos., are residents of this county. His 
wife and five children (all grown) remain to mourn his loss. To 
these the sympathy and condolence of the many friends of deceased 
will be extended in this their great affliction. — Daily Humbolt

Our Supervisor from the Fifth District is a farmer — that is he 
is engaged in raising grain and stock and fruit, near Winchester, 
in San Jacinto and Pleasant Valley Irrigation district. 

Mr. Loveland is a man ripe in years and experience, though 
hale and heart}*, with his faculties all in their prime. He was born 
in Ashtabula County, Ohio, but moved, in childhood, with his 
parents, to Indiana. He spent his early manhood in that state and 
Iowa, engaged in farming, stockraising and trading. He came to 
California in ^59, and after ten years on this coast, returned to 
^Hhe states.'^ In '79 he came back to California, and some six 
years ago settled in the Winchester country. Here he has been 
prosperous, and bids fair to spend the rest of his days in peace 
and comfort, surrounded by an interesting and happy family. 

Mr. Loveland is an eminently practical man, of quick intelli- 
gence, and the wide range and varied character of his experience 
has fully qualified him to take part in the management of the 
affairs of this county. His disposition is kindly and his manner

Frank Q. Loveland writes Jan'y 4, 1889: — "Ziba* Loveland, 
Sen., had a brother, Hannibal, who d at North Hero, Vt., Aug. 
20, 1822. My father says he has heard his father say that Ziba 
and Hannibal came across the wide waters. Father says that his 
father had a brother that got mad and left home when i8 years of 
age and was never heard from afterwards. We think Ziba, Sen., 
and Hannibal came from England to Connecticut. My father 
thinks the name of the boy who left home was Aaron." 

From G. L., Jan'y 17, 1889: — "I find the Ziba, Sen., to whom 
you refer, in the Saybrook Record, and as the name and dates cor- 
respond so well I think we shall be warranted in supposing that 
he, or he and his two sons, Ziba and Hannibal, migrated to 
Canaan, and from thence to Vermont. I think the idea of their 
having come from England had the same origin that exists in the 
other branches of the family, that our ancestors came from Eng- 
land. This branch of the family seems to have been separated 
from the other branches for two or three generations and when

they appeared among the others would naturally talk about their 
ancestry. I believe the Saybrook Lovelands descended from 
Thomas', that John^ of Saybrook was his son, and was brother to 
Thomas*, Elisha, Joseph and Benjamin. We find Ziba a family 
name among Elisha's* descendants. Rev. Ziba is a descendant of 
Elisha^y and he had an uncle Ziba who died unmarried."

tured and confined in Quebec until the close of the war. He then 
returned to Glastonbury. After his marriage he moved to South- 
field, where he lived until March, 1797. He then moved to Otis, 
Mass., and afterward to Glastonbury. In 182 1 he removed to 
Brighton, onto a farm which his son Abner had purchased for 
him. This was before the township was named and before the 
county was organized. This section then was a part of Medina 
County. His wife, Lois, lived at Sandisfield, Mass., and Otis, un- 
til her marriage. She had four sisters and one brother: Lydia, 
Anna, Jerusha, Eunice and Benjamin. 

My grandfather, Elisha* Loveland, was born and died in Glas- 
tonbury. He was a soldier in the Rev. War. He had two sons 
and two daughters: Isaac, Abner, Doley and Lucy. He died 
from a fall from a load of hay, and his wife, Lucy, afterward lived 
with my father. She had one daughter, Onor Stratton, by her 
first husband. The maiden name of Lois Hodge's mother was 
Lydia Welles. She married a Hodge, and her daughter Lois 
married Abner Loveland, my father. Lydia Welles lived to be 
^^ years old. Her oldest daughter married a Scoville, and lived 
to be 105 years old. My great-great-great-grandmother, Lydia 
Linkhorn, married Lord Goff in England (Welsh). Anna Hodge 
married a Webster, and died at 102 years (O. J. Hodge says: 
"She was b Feb'y 11, 1758, d Nov. 25, 1861, a. 104"). Benjamin 
Hodge, Sen., of Buffalo, N. Y., d at 98 (O. J. H. says: "Born 
1753, d 1837, a. 84"). Jerusha Hodge married Ebenezer Goodale. 
The Hodges are Scotch. Doley Loveland married Walter Par- 
sons, of Granville, Mass., and lived and died there. They had no 
children. Lucy Loveland was born in Glas., and died there (East- 
bury Parish). All our ancestors on the Loveland side are of Eng- 
lish extraction, but on the mother's side they are Scotch and 
Welsh. I saw my great-gramlfather, Elisha, when I was a boy.. I 
have been on his farm, and I am sure he was either the son* or 
brother of Thomas Loveland. (L. H. L. is right. Elisha's^ 
father and brother both bore the name Thomas, and so did his 
grandfather who was made Freeman by the Hartford, Conn., 
Court, 1670. J. B. L.) 

144 7^^^ Loveiand Genealogy, 

My father was a man of great memory, and I have from him 
that EHsha (Elisha*) was either the son or the brother of the one 
who came from England, and his name I am sure was Thomas. 
(L. H. and his father are both wrong. It is a fact which cannot 
be disputed that Elisha' was the grandson of Thomas ^ Loveiand, 
of 1670. They have not gone back far enough. Traditional and 
circumstantial evidence leads us to believe that Thomas ^ Loveiand 
was born in this country, and that his grandfather, whatever his 
name, died on the passage, leaving a widow and three sons to con- 
tinue the voyage to this country. His son Robert died at New 
London, Conn., 1669; John, another son, died in Glastonbury or 
in Hartford near the Glastonbury line, 1670; both old men. 
Another son, orobablv Elisha, was drowned in Connecticut River. 
These three men and their father and mother w^ere born in Eng- 
land. We believe that Robert was the father of Thomas* Love- 
land. The reason whv we have not commenced our count with 
the Loveiand who died on the passage, or with Robert, is, that 
we have no positive recorded evidence connecting them to him 
whom we know to be the progenitor of all the Lovelands recorded 
in the Loveiand Genealogy. We have therefore commenced our 
count with Thomas' Loveiand, grandfather of Elisha' Loveiand.

I know nothing of Elijah (Elijah^), but think he lived up in 
the hills. I know nothing of Hannah*. I visited Uncle Levi* 
' and Aunt Esther when I came to Ohio. His wife was the daugh- 
ter of Ebenezer Hill, of East Hartford. I remember two of 
Levi's children: Hannah, b Aug. 25, 1775, and George, b Dec. 8,

Leonard H. Loveland died Aug. 18, 1887, at the age of almost 
93 years. He was born in Southfield, Berkshire County, Mass., 
Oct. 3, 1794, and came to this county in July, 1821. His home the 
first settlement, himself the second settler. He lived to be the old- 
est citizen of Brighton Township. By persistent application in 
early life he had fitted himself for teaching, and developed those 
qualities of mind and heart which marked his success in later years. 
He was the leader of the first Methodist society organized in 
Brighton Township in 1827, which met at his house under the 
pastoral charge of the famous Harry O. Sheldon. He continued 
to be its leader for many years and a member to the close of his

declining life. He preserved in a large measure his mental and 
physical powers to the close of his life. 

It will be seen that he was born while George Washington 
was President of the United States, and lived while twenty Pres- 
idents passed away. He saw the States of the Union increase 
from 13 to 38. He saw the population of his native country rise 
from three millions to nearly sixty millions. He saw the church 
of his choice increase from two hundred thousand to two million 
communicants or more. While he lived three generations had 
come and gone and thrice the population of the globe had passed 
away. — The Enterprise, Aug. 31, 1887.

Mr. Loveland's parents moved from Southfield to Otis in 1797, 
where they lived until 1821. In 1807 he was sent to Sandisfield, 
Mass., where he lived four years with his uncle. He then returned 
home and remained until nineteen years of age. He was industri- 
ous, enterprising and economical, and his labors were wholly for 
his parents (who were in moderate circumstances) until his mar- 
riage. To obtain occupation to assist them, in 181 5 and thereafter 
we find him in New^town and Smithtown, Long Island, at Spots- 
wood, South Amboy, etc., N. J., and on Staten Island, N. Y. 

In 1819 he went to Ohio, where he arrived November 13th at 
the new settlement in the woods at Wellington, named after one 
of its then residents, Willian^ Welling. There were twenty-five 
souls, men, women and children, in this place when on this day in 
November Abner Loveland came among them and was a stranger 
to all. The next year (1820) he moved to Brighton Township

Ltorain County, five miles west from Wellington, and with his 
own hands cleared a spot in the forest and built the first human 
habitation in the township. This section was then a part of Me- 
dina County, and the township not named. In July, 1821, his 
father, mother and three sisters, Lavina, Pamelia and Manerya, 
joined him from Massachusetts, also his brother Leonard H. with 
wife and infant son, all moving into the house Abner had pro- 
vided for them. 

In 1826 Abner Loveland, having bought another farm, mar- 
ried, March 28th, Pamelia De Wolf, from Otis, Mass. She was a 
lady of education and refinement who in that early day emigrated 
to Ohio with her brother, Mathew De Wolf, and others from their 
old home in Massachusetts. That she was a charming Christian 
woman and brought joy and sunshine into every household she 
graced with her presence, all who ever knew her bore witness. 
In the log house which he had built for their home she taught the 
first school in the township, had about one dozen pupils, and re- 
ceived about seventy-five cents per week each, paid by the parents 
of the children. In this manner she aided in clearing up their little 

At this place they remained until 1833, wheu he sold his farm 
and moved to Wellington again, bought a third farm in the woods 
and cleared it up. He subsequently be6ame much interested in 
stock raising, and his fine horses, cattle and sheep were for some 
years quite noted in that section of the country. He remained on 
this farm until 1855, when, having became quite well to do for 
that section of the country, he removed to the village of Welling- 
ton and built for himself and family a fine home where he led a 
retired life until his death. 

Abner Loveland was an honest, sagacious, practical, successful 
farmer, possessed of those qualities needed to make a hardy pio- 
neer. Reticent and of a retiring disposition, never seeking notori- 
ety, yet a man of strong convictions and ready to defend them at 
any cost. He was a reader of many^books and in his house also 
might be found the best secular and religious newspapers of the 
times. In later years, as soon as the New York Tribune and In- 
dependent were published, he became a constant subscriber and 

158 The Loveland Genealogy, 

was a great admirer of their early editors, Horace Greeley and 
Henry Ward Beecher. 

Politically he was in early life an old line Whig. He was a 
firm friend of the bondman, hence he gave his earnest and early 
support to the Liberty Party, then to the Free Soil Party. His 
house was a well known station on the underground railroad, all 
trains passing that way stopped there^ and the passengers received 
the needed rest and refreshment and assistance to proceed towards 
freedom. He was one of the responsible parties arrested in v\ hat 
was known as the Oberlin-Wellington Rescue Case, in which one 
John Price, a slave who escaped from Kentucky, was kidn ipped 
at Oberlin, Ohio, while on the way south with his owner, at Wel- 
lington was captured and escaped to Canada. 

It hardly need be added that Abner Loveland in his later days 
was a staunch Republican. He was also a strong temperance 
man. In church connections he was a Congregationalist, yet 
never sectarian. He was always in his place in the house of God, 
and by quiet helpfulness and self forgetfulness lie exhibited his 
Christian character. — F. C. Loveland.

EDWIN BENEDICT LOVELAND, bjan'y 17, 1858, was 
at eight years of age deprived of the affectionate care and counsel 
of a father. His widowed mother soon thereafter removed to 
Oberlin, in order that her children might be afforded the best op- 
portunities of obtaining an education. The boy Edwin made his 
home with his aunt, Mrs. Reamer, who had no children, and re- 
mained there until he left college in the Junior year, about 1879. 
It was intended by his mother, aunt and Uncle Frank, that he 
should complete his college course, but he became impatient to en- 
gage in business, and with the firm resolve to carve out for him- 
self a fortune, perhaps, at least an honorable record, he sought the 
acquaintance of Mr. B. F. Hobart, who was largely engaged in 
coal mining in Missouri and Kansas. Without letters of introduc- 
tion or recommendation, other than his bright intellectual face and 
pleasing address, he made so favorable impression upon this 
shrewd, successful business man, that he gave him, in 188 1, a sub- 
ordinate place on a small salary as book-keeper in the yard of the 
Oswego Coal Company, at Wichita, Kansas. 

In 1882 the Rogers Coal Company was formed and Mr. Love- 
land became general agent of these two companies, and in 1SS3 
their vice-president. In 1882 Mr. Hobart moved to Springfield, 

i6o The Laveland Genealogy. 

Mo., and opened a bank there, and Mr. Loveland in 1884 also be- 
came vice-president of this bank. 

Another coal plant of this company was at Pittsburg, Kansas, 
then a snriall village, but now a city of about 20,000 people. The 
business of this corporation was much extended. They became 
possessed of coal lands in Kansas, Arkansas, Indian Territory and 
Texas, and formed what is now known as the Kansas & Texas 
Coal Company, with headquarters at St. Louis, Mo., and a paid 
up capital of $2,500,000. The president of this company is Mr. 
B. F. Hobart, and Mr. E. B. Loveland is vice-president and gen- 
eral manager. Mr. Hobart owns a controlling interest in the 
company. Mr. Loveland i?^ with others a large stockholder. 
Among the list of shareholders appears the name of James G. 
Blaine, of Maine; Richard C. Kerns; Hon. Stephen B. Elkins, 
Secretary of War; Mr. John T. Davis, of St. Louis; Powell Clay- 
ton, ex-Governor of Arkansas, and many others. This company 
owns mines at various points in the above named S'ates. and now 
employ over three thousand men, and turn out about five hundred 
car-loads of coal a day, conduct eight general supply stores and are 
interested in several banks. 

For some years Mr. Loveland made his home in the family of 
Mr. Hobart, but recently (1891) he has owned his home in the 
the most desirable part of St. Louis for residences, known as Van- 
deventer Place, and his widovyed mother prcvsides over his house- 
hold. He is unmarried. His sister, Frances E., married Mr. 
Will L. Loveland, of Denver, Colorado, who is a graduate of Ann 
Arbor College, Michigan, and descends from another branch of 
the original tree through Thomas *, of Glas., Conn. — F. C. L.

Of the many great bureaus necessary to the detail work of the 
National Government, perhaps none are more intelligently admin- 
istered or better systematized than the divsbursing agencies for the 
payment of pensions. These agencies, eighteen in number, located 
in large cities in as many States, except only the one at Washing- 
ton, D. C, the capital of the Nation, are the subject of interest to 
a great may people. Thence, either by personal payment or 
through the mails, on vouchers as to identification necessary in 
every instance, the checks which evidence the gratitude of the Na- 
tion in dollars and cents to its surviving veterans, or the widows, 
orphans and dependent parents of those who have died, to the 
number of 975,000, are conveyed to the beneficiaries. This, it 
should be remembered, is not a contribution by either of the polit- 
ical parties for the time being in control of the affairs of the Gov- 
ernment. And this we say, notwithstanding it is a subject much 
discussed and niuch abused by politicians. It is the act of all the 
people, through their representatives in Congress and the Presi- 
dent, ungrudgingly bestowed for value received in services ren- 
dered and sacrifices undergone on land and sea, through which the 
Nation was redeemed. When it is considered that these payments 
are usually small in amount, the highest being $300, for loss of 
both hands, and the lowest $6 per quarter; that they are made four 
times annually; that preceding each payment the same forms as to 
identification and making of vouchers are gone through with; that 
not a single dollar in currency is handled by the disbursing agents 
— all payments being by check to the order of the pensioner — some 
idea may be had of the detail work as also of the safeguards em- 
ployed by the government for its own protection in dispensing 
this evidence of its kind care. 

While some of the agencies cover a larger territory than others, 
it sufiBces our present purpose to say that the payments at each 
average more than 60,000, and it is probable that at this writing 
each agency exceeds that number. This means passing on 250,- 
000 sets of vouchers and the drawing of 250,000 checks every year 
by each agent These pension agents are required to give a bond 
to the Government in the sum of $300,000 each. 

1 62 The Laveland Genealogy, 

During the past six years the pension roll has been increased 
by nearly 500,000 names. While the work has more than doubled 
in every detail, the income of the officer in charge remains the 
same. As it is necessary that these agents should be men of the 
highest intelligence and ability their compensation ought to be in- 
creased in proportion to the additional responsibility, which is very 
great. As a rule— in fact we are not aware of a single exception 
— these pension agents are men who have seen service in 'war 
times, and many of them have lost their limbs, or bear upon their 
bodies other scars which evidence their devotion to home and 
country in the "days which tried men's souls." 

The location of these agencies and the names of the agents are 
as follows: Augusta, Maine, Hon. Joseph A. Clark; Boston, 
Mass., Hon. Wm. H. Osborne; Buffalo, N. Y., Major Jacob 
Schenkelberger; Chicago, 111., Hon. Isaac Clements; Columbus, 
Ohio, Gen. John G. Mitchell; Concord, N. H., Hon. Thos. P. 
Cheney; Des Moines, Iowa, Hon. Stephen A. Marine; Detroit, 
Mich., Hon. Edward H. Harvey; Indianapolis, Ind , Col. Nicholas 
Ensley; Knoxville, Tenn., Col. Wm. Rule; Louisville, Ky., Col. 
C.J. Walton; Milwaukee, Wis., Hon Levi E. Pond; New York 
City, N. Y., Col. Frank C. Loveland; Philadelphia, Pa., Major 
William H. Shelmire; Pittsburg, Pa., Hon. H. H. Bengough; San 
Francisco, Cal., Hon. John C. Currier; Topeka, Kan., Governor 
Geo. W. Glick; Washington, D. C, Hon. Sidney L. WilUon. 
Each and every one of them are good men and true. Each is 
worthy illustration and has a history. But the one we publish 
must answer for all. 

Col. Frank C. Loveland, U. S. Penbion Agent at New York, 
N. Y., was born in Wellington, Ohio, August 26, 1S39, ^^ New 
England parents. A student at Oberlin when the war broke out 
in 1861, he left there to enlist as a private in the 6th Ohio Cavalry. 
The records of the War Department show that at the front, for 
brave and efficient services, he was successively promoted to Ser- 
geant, Sergeant-Major, Second Lieut., First Lieut., Captain, Lieut.- 
Colonel and Colonel. He participated with his regiment in over 
50 skirmishes and battles, being always present for duty until very 
severely wounded by a shell in 1864, while with Gen. Phil Sheri? 

The Loveland Genealogy, 163 

dan, which disabled him for some months, after which he returned 
to the command of his regiment, where he remained until the 
close of the war in 1865, when he was mustered out. Coming to 
New York in 1866, he engaged in the jobbing dry goods business, 
and has resided here ever since. During Gen. Garfield's campaign 
in 1880 Col. Loveland, being an ardent Republican, was very ac- 
tive for his old army comrade and friend, and soon afterwards, 
under President Arthur's administration, he was appointed special 
agent for the investigation of pension rftatters in New York and 
New Jersey, in which position he remained until removed for po- 
litical reasons by Secretary of the Interior Lamar during Mr. 
Cleveland's administration. In May, 1889, he was appointed U. 
S. Pension Agent at New \"ork by President Harrison, to succeed 
Gen. Franz Sigel. This is one of the largest disbursing agencies 
in the country, its jurisdiction extending over all New York State 
east of Buffalo, and the greater portion of New Jersey as well as 
parts of Connecticut. On assuming this office Col. Loveland 
found very little system in practice and much less comfort in office 
accommodations, which with a constantly increasing pension roll, 
were throwing the district into almost hopeless chaos. 

With the energy of a soldier and the executive ability of an ex- 
perienced and practical business man he soon reorganized the de- 
partment, and has conducted its vast and rapidly increasing busi- 
ness with apparent ease and very little friction, winning commen- 
dation of all regardless of political affiliations. During quarterly 
payment months, he and his clerks work from seven o'clock in the 
morning until midnight, often including Sunday, in order that the 
deserving soldier or his widow shall not suffer by reason of any 
delay which any extra work on their part may prevent. 

When it is remembered that nearly $10,000,000 per annum are 
disbursed at this agency to about 60,000 pensioners, it will readily 
be understood that the necessary detail and labor of the office is 
very great not alone during payment months, but in the preparation 
for each quarterly payment; and the fact that 15,000 pensioners 
come personally to the office and receive their checks, adds mater- 
ially to the work. About 45,000 pensioners have their vouchers 
executed where they reside, send them in and receive their checks

by mail. This office under previous management never paid 2,000 
pensioners in any one day, but Col. Loveland has, by his more 
perfect organization and improved system for expediting business, 
in the same building and with but slight additional force of clerks, 
made a record average of over 8,500 pensioners paid per day for 
six successive days; on one of these six days the number of pen- 
sioners paid at office and by mail was 10,750, and amount dis- 
bursed $362,850. 

Another new and verjf creditable feature of this office under 
Col. Loveland's management is its "G. A. R. Mission," so called. 
For years it had been the custom of from one to two thousand old 
veterans to arrive at the Pension Office during the day and night 
before each quarterly payment began, in order to secure places in 
line, and stand there all night and until the doors of the agency 
opened and the payment commenced at 7 a. m. This practice is 
esteemed by many a privilege that they would consider a greater 
hardship to surrender than the exposure to the weather that it ne- 
cessitates. There are many saloons in the neighborhood, and they 
of course have been doing a paying business at these times at least, 
not alone during the night while the crowd wait, but the follow- 
ing days — by cashing the pensioners' checks at a high rate of dis- 
count- also having a fine opportunity to continue the sale of 
liquors to many of these unfortunate veterans. 

Now, through the efforts of Col. Loveland, a Giand Army 
Mission has been organized, the managers of which are Major- 
General O. O. Howard, of the U. S. A.; Gen. Alexander S. 
Webb, President of the College of New York; Col. Frank C. 
Loveland; Gen. P'red'kT. Loc'<e; Col. H. H. Hadley; Major- 
Gen. Wager 8wayne;Capt. Killian Van Rensselaer; Mr. William 
T. Wardwell, Treasurer of the Standard Oil Co ; Mr. Henrv 
Hall, Supt. of the New York Tribune, and Mr. John S. Huyler. 
It occupies the entire basement floor under the Pension Agency, is 
open all day and night during the payment months, and any old 
soldier or sailor can there be accommodated with sandwiches and 
hot coffee free of charge, and anv who choose to take part in sing- 
ing old army songs or Moody and vSankcy hymns can do so to the 
accompaniment of piano, violin and bugle. Col. Loveland has also

had it arranged in this mission-room for all pensioners to whom he 
pays checks to have them cashed free of charge. The necessary 
expense of this mission, amounting to about $5,000 per year, is 
borne by the contributions of a few friends of Col. Loveland, he 
sharing equally with others. 

It hardly need be stated that the old veterans are loud in their 
praises of the Pension Agent for this protection from the weather 
and to their pockets, as well as wholesome supply for their stom- 
achs, not to mention the patriotic or religious features of the case 
that many appear to enjoy. The only parties who do not like the 
present arrangement at the Pension Office are the claim agents and 
saloon-keepers, who charge Col. Loveland with having ruined 
their business. 

Col. Loveland is an active business man, a tireless worker, a 
strict disciplinarian, a true friend to the soldier and a terror to the 
shyster claim agents who, before he took charge of this office, had 
free entree to all parts of it, and were usually in collusion with 
some clerk employed there in robbing soldiers at every oppor- 

Col. Loveland is a Royal Arch Mason, a member of The 
Patria Club, Ohio Society of New York, The Business Men's Re- 
publican Club, The Republican Club of New York, The New 
England Society, The Society of the Army of the Potomac, 
Gregg's Cavalry Association; Lafayette Post, 140, G. A. R.; The 
United Service Club, and the New York Commandery Military 
Order of the Loyal Legion. 

His grandfather and great grandfather having been soldiers in 
the Revolutionary War entitles him by enheritance to member- 
ship in the military order called The Sons of the Revolution, to 
which he belongs.- Home and Country Magazine, Oct.-Nov., 1892.

After his father's death, Chauncey Loveland came in possession 
of the homestead in Madison. He was of a very industrious dis- 
position and never content unless profitably employed. ' In 1836 he 
moved to Lorain Co., O., where he lived about ?i\^ years. His 
sons Levi and Chester joined the church of Jesus Christ of Latter 
Day Saints in 1837 and moved in 1840 to Carthage where they 
'were soon joined by their parents. Here his wife and son died. 
In the spring of 1846, he married Mrs. Sally Horn Crockett, and 
after joining the church started with other members of it for 
Council Bluffs, Iowa. In 1847 he went to Utah with the Mormon 
pioneers, leaving his family at the Bluffs. In 1848 he crossed 
the plains again, taking his family with him. They located at 
Bountiful, ten miles north of Salt Lake City. During the gold 
excitement he visited California, exploring the mining regions 
quite extensively before his return. The remaining yea's of his 
life he resided on his farm and took great pride in securing fine 
horses. In disposition he was kind and una^sumin^ and never 
aspired to positi'^ns in public life. As a pioneer and adventurer he 
ranks among the bravest. He had three wives and held the 
position of High Priest in the church. His life was full of love 
for his fellow men which was manifested by his good deeds toward 
them. He is buried in Bountiful Cemetery. — H. L. S.

Col. Chester Loveland was raised on a farm in Ohio, and his 
educational advantages were only such as the pioneer school af- 
forded. It was in the pioneer school he formed the acquaintance 
of Fanny Call whom he married in 1838. He joined the Latter 
Day Saints in June 1837, *"^ moved with his father to Lorain 
County where he lived until 1840, when he removed to Carthage, 
111., and purchased a farm. On account of his religious belief, in 
1845, he and his sick family were attacked at midnight and their 
home and household goods were burned, by a mob, led on by a 
lawyer named Stevens. In the fall of 1S45, he moved to Nauvoo, 
111., and was appointed captain of the Nauvoo Legion in its first 
organization. During the turbulent times through which the 
church passed he had many hair breadth escapes. In one instance 
a leaden ball designed to take his life came so near as to graze his 
face, scorching it sufficiently to cause the skin to peal off. He 
relates this incident of himself: "I was on a jury when some of 
our brethren who had been falsely accused were brought to trial 
before eleven mobocratic jurors. I held that jury thirty-six hours, 
until they were nearly starved. Two verdicts were before us: 
One guilty, the other not guilty. Eleven signed the guilty verdict 
and insisted that I should do the same. No gentlemen, I said, 
before I will sign that paper I will die here on this floor, and the 
red ants may carry me out through the key hole." The result 
was: Every man signed the verdict of not guilty and the innocent 
went free. He entered into plural marriage, January 15, 1846, 
having sealed to him in the Nauvoo Temple a second wife by the 
name of Rosannah Winters. The following spring he went west 
and took up a farm at Council Bluffs, Iowa, which he cultivated 
until 1849, when he was employed by the U. S. Government to 
asssist in building Fort Kearney on the Platte River. About 
the first of May, 1850, he was appointed captain of the first 10 in 
Captain Willies^ company of 50, and started with his family for 

The Loveland Genealogy, 203 

Salt Lake City, Utah. During the journey he buried his son Levi 
who died with cholera which was then raging in the country. 
After a long, perilous journey of four months he arrived in Salt 
Lake City, September, 1850. He located soon after in Bountiful, 
Davis County, where he built a log cabin to shelter his family 
through the winter. To procure food for his wives and children 
he burned charloal on Weber River which he sold and delivered 
to blacksmiths in Salt Lake City. In 1853 he was appointed 
Lieutenant-Colonel by Pres. Brigham Young, then Governor of 
Utah, with instructions to organize a regiment in the northern part 
of the Territory. He subsequently carried out these instructions 
and was commissioned Colonel by Governor Cummings, which 
position he held until his death in 1886. 

In the fall of 1853 he married Celia Simmons. In 1855 he went 
to Carson Valley which at that time was a part of Utah, but is 
now Nevada, to assist in locating a colony of Latter Day Saints. 
During one of the explorations at Walker's Lake, they were 
overcome with thirst, and so intense were their sufferings that 
every man's tongue was swoolen out of his mouth. Providentially 
some Indians met them and brought water to their relief. Never 
was a humane act better appreciated, for which the Indians were 
clothed from head to foot with new suits. Returning home in the 
fall, he removed his family the next spring to Carson Valley and 
succeeded Orson Hyde in the presidency of the mission. He was 
called again to Utah in the latter part of 1857, previous to the 
arrival of Johnson's army in Utah. During the defensive opera- 
tions in Echo Canyon he acted as commissary. The following 
spring he and family went south with other church members to 
Provo but returned the same year to Bountiful. In i860 he moved 
to Call's Fort where he resided on a farm. While here he ex- 
perienced many perilous adventures, so frequent in pioneer life. 
He kept a hotel for transient miners and emigrants; his only 
neighbors for some time were his son sheriff C. C. Loveland and 
family. Late in the fall of 1862, about forty-five emigrants known 
as Captain Smith's Company were en route for California. On 
Raft River they were attacked by Indians who killed four and 
wounded nine others of the company. All their teams and pro- 

204 The Laveland Genealogy. 

visions were stolen and the company left without food. By 
almost superhuman strength and fortitude three emigrants made 
good their escape and called upon Col. Loveland to rescue the 
remaining members of the company. The Colonel with three 
others started for the scene of trouble and upon their arrival found 
about thirty men women and children on the verge of starvation. 
All they had eaten for nine days previous was wild berries from 
the mountain shrubs. Although the teams and provisions ivere 
lost the remaining members of the company were rescued and 
shared the hospitality of the whole-souled Colonel. 

In 1865 he moved six miles south to Brigham City. He was 
elected first mayor of Brigham City. This position he held with 
honor and credit two consecutive terms (four years). He subse- 
quently was assessor and collector of the county for several years. 
Through his influence and ability he did much to formulate the 
laws and ordinances of the beautiful city of Brigham, which rightly 
is styled the "City of Homes." He married Rosetta Snow, 
November 17, 1866. Early in the year 1868 he was appointed 
captain of a company to go to the terminus cf the Union Pacific 
R. R. on the Platte River after an emigration of Latter Day 
Saints who were on their way to Utah. They were attacked by 
Indians on the Sweet Water who stole their teams. However the 
anfmals were recovered, but not without a hard struggle in which 
four Indians were killed. The company arrived safely under the 
judicious management of the Colonel. He married Louise Faulk- 
ner, September 5, 1868. The Colonel was six feet two inches in 
height, weighed 2^0 pounds, had blue eyes, a high forehead, and 
brown curly hair. He had a fine physique. When in his military 
suit and mounted on his horse he was the admiration of ail. He 
was a stranger to fear and never shunned positions of danger 
where duty called to rescue either friend or stranger. In physical 
development he was evidently formed for a champion — tall and 
robust he might well pass for a modern Ajax in strength and agility. 
Although he acquired considerable wealth during his life, yet 
owing to his proverbial generosity and whole-souled disposition he 
never became rich. He was the friend of the poor and needy. 
No one ever left his door hungry. In politics he was a Democrat

Probably no one did more to bring into subjection this desert 
country than the honored and courageous Col. Loveland. His 
fame as a leader and pioneer will be handed down for generations 
to come. Fond memories of his honesty and friendship will ever 
be cherished by his numerous posterity. He was. beloved by all, 
especially children whom he always noticed and made happy. On 
March 5, 1886 he passed peacefully away. — H. L. S.

Sheriff Chester Carlos Loveland, son of Col. Chester Love- 
land and Fanny Call, was born in Carthage, 111., April 23, 1841. 
In his boyhood, during the winter months, he attended the rude 
schools which the Mormons had at that time, and by close appli- 
cation acquired the rudiments of a practical education. At the age 
of seven we find him inducted teamster to break prairie sod on his 
father's farm in Iowa, and at nine driving the same ox team across 
the plains to Utah. At the age of fourteen, during the necessary 

2o8 The Lcveland Genealogy. 

absence of his father, with the aid of his sister Agnes, two years 
younger, he harvested the crops and secured the provisions for the 

In 1856 he went to Carson Valley to assist in cutting timber, 
and, during the same year, with others made a journey to Cali- 
fornia for supplies. It was while on this journey that the sheriff 
for the first and only time in his life felt fear. Jle was placed on 
guard one dark and stormy night, and being young his imagination 
discovered lurking Indians near his beat. His hair was lifted but 
not with a scalping knife. A stray ox from the herd was the inno- 
cent cause of his trepidation. In i860 he married Mary Ann 
Barnes. This estimable woman has been a "crown to her husband'' 
and "her children arise up and call her blessed." They settled on 
a farm at Call's Fort. The next year he was elected constable of 
that precinct. This honor was conferred on him for acts of courage 
in arresting criminals: He was called on to assist in the capture of 
a notorious thief; at the critical moment the commanding officer's 
heart failed him and the sheriff was ordered to make the arrest. 
With only one trusty compani >n he entered the camp of six 
desperadoes, placed them under arrest and setured the thief. This 
courageous act gave him prestige and from that time to the present 
( 1895) he has been an officer in active service. 

In 1866 he was chosen assistant captain of a posse organized to 
bring a company of Mormon emigrants across the plains to Utah. 
The next year he moved to Brigham City, Utah, where he was 
chosen Lieutenant of a military organization called the "minute 
men" formed for the protection of settlers against the Indians and 
horse thieves who were causing great distress among the people. 
He was also appointed deputy sheriff this year and during the con- 
struction of the Union Pacific Railroad in 1869, acted on the police 
force. He held the office of deputy sheriff until 1877, when he 
was elected Marshal of the city. He served eight years. He also 
belonged to the "Standing Army," a military force organized to 
protect the settlers from the attack of Col. Johnson's Army, and, 
should circumstances demand, destroy every vestige of improve- 
ment. He enlisted in iS68« 


The Loveland Genealog'y. 309 

In 1881 he was elected sheriff of Box Elder County and with 
the exception of two years has held that office to the present time, 
being re-elected at the last election. 

His early pionec^r life and his natural bravery have developed 
in him the essential characteristics for an eminent officer of the law, 
and to day he is recognized as one of the oldest and best in the 
territory. We cannot here give space to relate the many dangers 
he has passed thro'igh in his official career, but many a time he has 
left h's brave wife and family, and with but one assistant recovered 
stolen property from the Indians and desperadoes. In making ar- 
rest«« of desperate characters he has never had occasion to kill a 
criminal. He is very cautious and uses great tact in his official 
work, and many noted murderers, train robbers, and burglars have 
been brought to justice by his skill. 

The sheriff resembles his father somewhat, though less in 
sta'ure. He has black hair and blue eyes and is the most popular 
man in Box Elder County. He is a firm believer in democratic 
principles and was one of the first in the county to divide on party 
lines. He is congenial in his nature and so free hearted that his 
generosity is a detriment to his financial prosperity. He enjoys 
himself never better than exchanging jokes with his numerous 
friends. — H. L. S.

enterprises and public positions with various interests of the city,

man and a sterling citizen. He entered active commercial life in 
1880, and now ( 1894) devotes the most of his time in directing the

lectual woman and a lender in the society where she moves. She

County of Leeds, District of Johnstown, Upper Canada, Jan'y 25, 
1838. In 1853, Isaac Bullock in charge, he with others, was called 
to make a settlement in Green River Co., Utah, returning to 
Bountiful, Utah, in 1854. Two years later with his brother 
Chester and others he went to settle the Carson Valley, Nevada, 
region. September, 1857, he was called to intercept the U. S. 
Army then on its way to Utah, and prevent its access to the Salt 
Lake Valley. In the spring of 1858, on account of the U. S. 
Army, the Bountiful people moved south to Provo Bottoms, re- 
turning in July. March, 1861, he moved to Call's Fort, returning 
in June. The Morrisite War broke out June, 1862, and he was

Mr. C. S. Loveland writes from N. Y. City, Sept. 25, 1888: 
"Clara Jane left home Jan'y 30, 1888, for a course of study at the 
State Normal School at New Britain, Conn. After five weeks of 
school work she was taken down with nervous prostration, in- 
duced by hard study coupled with great anxiety for her father 
who she knew was to leave home about that time for N. Y. City 
for the purpose of a surgical operation. The nervous prostration 
soon developed into typhoid fever, and on Saturday mornings, 
March loth, she quietly fell asleep to waken on the other shore. 
On the following Monday morning — the day of the memorable 
blizzard of 1888 — her parents, with the remains, left New Britain 
by train for their home in Morris. After an hour's ride, and when 
within five miles of Waterbury, the train became blockaded with 
snow. After two days and two nights spent on the train we 
reached Waterbury Wednesday morning, just at daybreak, but 
could proceed no further. The following day the roads were 
opened sufliciently so that we could resume the sad journey, and 
we reached home, fifteen miles from Waterbury, on that day, just 

at night."

i. Ralph Lyman*, b Sept. 20, 1875. 

We quote from the Geauga Leader of Oct. 7, 1892: "Mr. 
Loveland enlisted in the 41st O. V. L, Oct. 10, 1861, and was with 
the regiment at the Battle of Pittsburg Landing, April 7, 1862, 
when a grape shot wounded him and so shattered his leg that he 
. was discharged. The knee has ever since been stiff and several 
fragments of bone have at different times been taken from the 
limb. He has suffered very much and the leg has given him much 
trouble. After receiving his wound, while at the hospital, his 
wife went to him and remained with him until he had sufficientlv 
recovered to be brought home on a cot, the last of November. 
He was a punctual and faithful charter member of C. A. Eddy- 
Post, No. 558, G. A. R., which post and the W. R. C. in a body 
attended the funeral. Hall Post, of Farmington, was also present 
in a body, and members of Patchin Post, Burton; Delos Northway 
Post, Orwell, and comrades from Bloomfield and other places 
were also present. The funeral was very large. The services 
were held in the M. E. Church, the Rev. G. H. Fairbanks, of 
Troy, preaching the sermon. The post had charge of the services, 
mostly. Kind friends contributed flowers plentifully, including a 
beautiful floral pillow from the W. R. C, on which was arranged 
in beautiful design "Comrade Rest," of which Mrs. Loveland was 
a charter member; also a beautiful floral pillow from Mrs. C. M. 
Bates, a handsome floral cross by Mrs. J. H. Laird, and floral star 
by Mrs. L. E. Peck. Fine and appropriate music was furnished 
by a double quartette, directed by Mrs. L. E. Peck."

228 The Loveland Genealogy. 

Mr. Clark came to Iowa at the age of twenty-seven years, to 
find on its broad prairies a home and a fortune. He gave evidence 
of his characteristic foresight and good judgment Hy his choice of 
locations. Having but little money he first laid claim to the 160 
acres on which he lived and died. Afterward when the land came 
into market and subject to entry, having unwavering confidence 
in the future greatness and prosperity of his adopted State, he bor- 
rowed money at the usurious interest then asked and invested it in 
timber land, thus laying at that early day the foundation of the 
ample fortune left as an enheritance to his wife and five children 
who survive him. 

Mr. Clark was a typical pioneer, finding congenial work for 
his brain and hands in attending strictly to his own business; he 
was satisfied to allow his neighbors the same privilege. Yet he 
was not indifferent to the success of those less fortunate than him- 
self and would give from the store of his ripe experience valuable 
advice when asked, never obtrusive and usually retiring. He was 
not born to shine in social circles, his mind sought solid, not froth, 
and his reading and thought was that of a practical man. Like 
most frontier-men he was undemonstrative in his hospitality, yet 
you could feel it was free and welcome as the prairie air you 
breathed. There was always a place at his table and home for the 
friend or neighbor, or stranger guest. Although a business man, 
he was free from the methods often practiced by the modern busi- 
ness man, no questionable smartness or deep laid tricks; he hated 
meanness and his promise once given was never broken, but it was 
never given hastily. In all the forty-nine years of the writer's ac- 
quaintance with William A. Clark this trait has beea the most 
prominent of his character. In his long and wearisome and often 
painful sickness, he displayed the same quiet endurance and patient 
waiting for the result that was true to his nature and almost stoical. 
It is by such men as this "The wilderness is made to blossom like 
the rose" and Sta'tes grow prosperous.

DiBD — At her home in Melville Township, Dec. 7th, at 10:30 
A. M., Mrs. Lucena Loveland Farquhar, nee Bagley, aged 60 
years and 2 days. 

Mrs. Farquhar was born in Logan County, Ohio, Dec. 5, 1833, 
and was married to Mr. F. P. Farquhar in Muscatine County, 
Iowa, Sept. 19th, 1852. There have been eight children, seven of 
whom are living. 

Mrs. Farquhar was a woman in whom the elements of charac- 
ter were strong and positive and yet genial and winning in her 
spirit and manner, possessing a magnetic kindness which made her 
generally and greatly beloved. She was a devoted wife and 
mother, and her death has brought to the home sorrow of an un- 
speakable loss. Mrs. Farquhar did not profess her faith in Christ 
in the divine appointed way, but gave evidence that she possessed 
the reality of faith in the risen Redeemer as her Savior and Lord. 
Two hymns sung at the funeral were to her favorite hymns: 
"Nearer my God to Thee," and. "God be with you till we meet 

The funeral was attended at the home, the services conducted 
by Rev, £. Dickinson, and the remains laid to rest in Maple Grove 
Cemetery. A large gathering of friends and neighbors gave evi- 
dence both b}' their presence and evident sorrow of the general 
sense of loss. — Audubon, Audubon Co., la.. Republican, Dec. 14,

The Laveland Genealogy. 233 

one of the oldest men in town, and we believe there are but one 
or two now living who were here when he came to Castleton from 
Connecticut nearly three-quarters of a century since. For 60 
years he had been a consistent member of the Congregational 
Church in Castleton, having joined it in 1823. Recommenced 
working at the shoemaking business here about 70 years since and 
toiled at it cheerfully until a recent period. Mr. Loveland was an 
honest, gentle-hearted man, and, although modest and unobtrusive, 
was one of the most intelligent and companionable of men; he 
preferred to serve humanity by honest toil at his vocation. His 
dislike of office and participating in public affairs was decided, but 
all the same, those who knew him well honored and esteemed him 
highly. Among them the writer can bear testimony to the fact 
that there were few men to be found in the ordinary walk of life 
possessing a more thorough knowledge of English literature and 
current events. He was a man of good judgment and correct busi- 
ness principles. The writer has had intimate business relations 
with Mr. Loveland, having been in a situation where he passed 
months and years in his society; saw him often during his patiently 
borne illness, and was with him at his death; he therefore feels im- 
pelled to bear his humble testimony to the worth of a good old 
man and to express a fervent hope that "after life's fitful fever, he 
sleepeth well."

William S. Baker was remarkable in his boyhood for being of 
a studious nature. By diligent home study winter evenings, sup-

piemen ted by the district school and a few terms at an academy, he 
mastered the intricacies of mathematics and elementary science. 
His father being poor necessitated him to go out early to service, 
and when, in 1833, his father was killed by the kick of a horse, 
the care and support of the family fell to the management of him 
and his mother. His qualifications enabled him to teach school. 
By this occupation and farming he managed to support the 
family. We find him in turn teaching the district schools at Gran- 
ville, Mass., Bakerville and Nepaug, Conn., and later in charge 
of the new academy at Bakerville. 

He was a good school teacher, and enthusiastic and conscien- 
tious in his work. His services were in great demand by school 
committees, and their competition to secure him gave him wide 
spread notoriety. He was a pioneer in the normal methods of in- 
struction, which at this time were but little known in the New- 
England towns, and a strong advocate of graded schools. Nov. 
15, 1840, Sunday, he was publicly married to one of his former 
pupils in the Bakerville M. E. Church. This accomplished and 
intelligent lady, Fanny Matilda, was the youngest daughter of 
Daniel and Margaret Smith Rogers, a descendant of John Rogers, 
the English martyr. 

Mr. and Mrs. Baker both taught school the first year of their 
married life, in West Brewer and West Dennis, Mass. They then 
set up housekeeping at the Cape, where he taught during the win- 
ter of 184 1 -2. Here his special talent attracted the notice of Hon. 
Horace Mann, the great New England educator, who was devot- 
ing his whole time to the cause of education. Mr. Mann secured 
his services in normal school and institute work. In 1848 we find 
him editor of the Rhode Island Practical Teacher. In 1851 he 
entered the employ of Hon. Henry Barnard, LL. D., as itinerant 
educator, traveling and speaking in every school society in the 
State and making many lifelong friends. In 1856 he went to 
Minnesota and Missouri, where he was engaged in educational 
work three years. In 1857-8 he was agent of State Teachers' Asso- 
ciation, headquarters at St. Louis. In 1865 he accepted a position 
with Collins & Co., as traveling salesman in the western and 
southern States. He visited the Andersonville Rebel Prison, col-

lected the material for his lecture on the "Atrocities of Anderson- 
ville," which drew large audiences. He also visited many of the 
Freedmen schools, advising them on the possibilities of getting 
education under difficulties. The last few years of his life were 
devoted to farming and teaching select schools, winters. He was 
a strong anti-slavery man, benevolent to a fault, ever ready to as- 
sist the needy, and if necessary sacrifice his last dollar for their 
good. In school government he was firm, yet kind and full of 
sympathy for the unfortunate. He sought by a pure life to lead 
others to high morals and noble daring. Who shall say his work 
"was not well done, and that the many crosses he had to bear will 
not lead to a brighter crown? — F. R. Baker. 

In Barnard's Journal of Education, Vol. 14 (New series, Vol. 
4), Sept., 1 864, is a portrait of Mr. Baker and a complimentary 
sketch of his educational work. Through the courtesy of Hon. 
Henry Barnard, at the request of his son Frank, we are enabled to 
have the same portrait of this distinguished educator in this volume.

Lazarus Loveland lived and died in the same house where his 
son Jesse was born and died, and where the nine children of Jesse 
were born. He entered the American Army early in the War of 
the Revolution, and continued in the service to the triumphant 
cessation of hostilities. He was an active participant in most of 
its important battles. While he aimed to make his own home a 
constant source of happiness to his family, his own daily life illus- 
trated the Puritanical exactness and rigid applications of principles 
so characteristic of the times. His la*er years were pleasantly 
spent in quiet retirement, and in the cultivation of his little farm, 
beautifully situated among the hills of his native town. It gave 
him pleasure to recall and vividly describe the many heart thrilling 
experiences through which he had passed while fighting his coun- 
try's battles whenever he found an attentive and interested listener. 
The old house in which he passed his symmetrical and well 
ordered life was burned in the year 1873. Rachel Loveland, wife 
of Lazarus Loveland, was a very social woman and naturally en- 
joyed the society of a large circle of friends and acquaintances. 
She was conscientious in the strictest sense, and particularly punc- 
tilious regarding the observance of the Sabbath. She had also a 
tenderly sympathetic nature which prompted generous gifts of 
material aid and the expression of loving words of consolation to 
the poor and afflicted. She died at a very advanced age, a mem- 
ber of the Presbyterian Church, She was beloved by all who 
knew her.

Jesse Loveland was a housebuilder by occupation. He was 
born in the house in which he lived and died. He led an unevent- 
fill life, was a quiet man, a great reader and a deep thinker. He 
was identified with the reform party of the times, rallied under the 
banner of "Jefferson and Liberty." On his return from the w^ar 
(1812) he was enlhusiastically received by his fellow townsmen 
and was chosen captain of the town militia company by acclama- 
tion, wliich office he held many years. He was earnestly patriotic

Paine Loveland, w^s a most exemplary Christian woman and an 
ardent and consistent member of the Wethersfield Episcopal 
Church. Her memory is held in deep affectionate remembrance 
by her large family of children. She was a woman of deep and 
enthusiastic religious nature. She did not reason to conclusions, 
she simply believed all things, hoped all things and was happy in 
that condition. She had a wonderful store of information regard- 
ing the useful things of life and its duties. She was family phy- 
sician, tailor, instructor and woman of all work. She was emi- 
nently a home woman and derived her chief happiness from its 
daily round of experience. 

Their son, Benjamin Franklin Loveland, learned the art of 
moulding in all its branches. The confinement proving irksome 
he engaged in the business of whaling — had command of a vessel 
many years. He was a courageous captain and single handed sub- 
dued a mutinous crew who had demanded the surrender of the 
vessel for piratical purposes. He is at present (1884). engaged in 
the business of stock raising on the Pacific slope. He owns large 
tracts of land including several islands. He resides at Coupville, 
Island County, Washington.

Mr. Loveland in early life learned the mason's trade, but being 
of a literary turn of mind he sought every opportunity to add to 
his store of practical and useful knowledge. When his attention 
was called to the ministry he entered upon a course of study under 
the supervision of Rev. H. B. Soule, and was ordained by the 
Hertford Countj^ Assopiation of Universalists, Jan'jr^ iSijS. JJi§

ministerial labors were with the congregations at Granby, Nor- 
wich, Lyme, Goshen, Bark ham, Street, Winchester and Somers, 
Conn,, and Granville, Mass. He owned a large and successfully 
conducted fruit farm at North Granby. He was a frequent con- 
tributor to various religious, reformatory, agricultural and scientific 
periodicals. He held the appointment several years of State lec- 
turer under the auspices of the Order of the Patrons of Husbandry. 
Martha Olivia Lee, wife of Rev. A. L. Loveland, graduated at 
the Southwich, Mas^., High School, and before her marriage 
spent several years in teaching. Her sister, Mary Victoria Lee, 
only other child of George Lee and Adaline Hayes, graduated 
from the medical department of Michigan University at Ann Ar- 
bor. She is a successful lady physician. 

Mrs. Lovoland's grandfather, Orrin Lee, was a person of rare 
natural gifts and accomplishments. He had noble endowments of 
mind characteristic of the highest type of development which 
prompted a continual life of usefulness. His venerable and com- 
manding presence constituted a perpetual inspiration in the direc- 
tion of honor. 



With the unerring revolu'ion of Time's wheel we are brought 
again to the Sabbath day of rest, and into the sacred sanctuary 
dedicated to the one universal God who is the same yesterday, to- 
day and forever. 

But fiwe Sundays ago a little band of faithful worshippers 
heard from this desk those sweet words of Christ — "Blessed are 
they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall 
be filled," — and they came from one whose hunger and thirst had 
b/en filled with joy and peace; who had drank at the fountain of 
living waters, and been fed by the Hand of Infinite Love. 

How carelessly the words fell on those who listened to the be- 
loved teacher! They could not understand how life's short day 
was ebbing to its close. After fifty-nine years of a continuous step- 
pine towards heaven^ in the ripened beauty of m^n)io94 ^1^4 f^r*

reaching influence and glorified consumation of a ministerial career, 
the death angel has laid his icy touch upon the shepherd of this flock. 

**I have laid help upon one who is mighty; I have exalted one 
chosen of the people." "And we are the people of .His pasture 
and the sheep of His hand." 

But a few days ago, a dav so filled with sorrow and mystery 
that it seems almost like a dream, underneath this desk, shrouded 
in its emblems of woe, surrounded by tributes of loving hands 
like a king in regal state, lay the piisior and friend whose life had 
been made up of heroic deeds, and whose heart-throbs had been 
given to the cause of truth and the good of humanity. 

From the hillsides and valleys they came -a vast throng, tear- 
ful and mourning because of t'^eir great love for him. Indeed, a 
mighty man among men had fallen! Upon bis noble brow God 
had set his sign and seal and giving to the world an assurance of a 
man. My feeble pen can give no fitting memorial tribute to the 
life and character of a man like him. 

Like many of you, I have set at his feet and been taught les- 
sons of faith and resignation. From the open page of nature^s 
book he has gained inspiration and led us step by step through na- 
ture up to nature's God. When sorrow has entered our own 
dwelling, and sickness and death has walked hand in hand with 
us, across the hills has come many a ray of sunshine, and words 
of blessed promise have fallen upon our bleeding hearts like dews 
of heaven upon the thirsty earth. 

He was tender and gentle as a woman, with the self reliance 
and fearlessness of a Christ. Is it sacrilege that when the frail tene- 
ment was given back **earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to 
dust," in yonder quiet cemetery thoughts of the Savior's grave 
came to us? And as apology for our own fast falling tears it was 
a blessed comfort to think that even Jesu^s wept at the grave of 
one he loved. 

It is a rare thing to find a character of inflexible uprightness of 
purpose and wherever such exist they are the salt of the earth.

We say of the casket that shielded the gem of utmost value as 
Mre lay it to its repose after life's fitful fever is over: "It sleeps 
vrell!" But the memory of those who pass through the "Beauti- 
ful Gates Ajar" are sunsh'ne in our hearts forevermore. To the 
w^idowed heart of her who has walked in daily companionship for 
thirty four years of sunshine and shade, and to the one deprived of 
the watchful care and guidance of a father's love, do we feel 
especially drawn, for only in the home circle can they truly under- 
stand how fearful a thing it is to love what death can touch. 
Like those who sat seven days and seven nights to comfort one of 
old, we find no words but sit down with the multitude — for upon 
aM has the shadow fallen and all are mourners. 

As we enter this church we seem to see again the fond eyes 
beaming with wondrous beauty, the tongue moves in silvery sweet- 
ness at the movements of the soul, and the beloved presence falls 
upon us like a father's benediction. The very air is full of his 
presence and his influence lingers around us like grateful perfumes. 
The gentle guide, with hand white as the driven snow, beckons 
us on and makes us patient to "labor and wait." As he led and 
taught us here, so will he greet us on the confines of the new 
country — and what marvels of travel will he unfold to our enrap- 
tured vision as we move on in that existence where every presence 
is a halo and a joy forever! 

In the lofty chambers of God's great universe, like clouds 
gather the beckoning hands, and like doves home to their win- 
dows are we winging our way. Those in the sere and yellow 
leaf of their pilgrimage, the youth in life's green spring, and the 
little buds of a summer's day are passengers to the skies. 

In this dispensation of Providence we find it hard to see the di- 
vine will done on earth as it is done in heaven, and amid the busy 
sound of life's duties we pause and look out upon the hills of God 
from whence cometh strength. 

In the consciousness of our great immortality we revel and ex- 
patiate in the life to come. It is the omnipresent thought and re- 
lieves the burdened heart and casts off the pain-throbs of this mo- 
mentary existence. Through the blessed teachings of our trans-

lated Shepherd we sit down to the feast of the immortals, and in 
this high life we find God our father who dwelleth in immortality. 

As of those who have heen down in the midst of sorrow and 
the vale of tears, we find it especially sweet, as we come to the 
feast, to feel in our inmost soul that we have a friend who ^^stick> 
eth closer than a brother," and we realize all that sweetness in the 
knowledge that Jesus is our companion who leads the way to the 
new and ever increasing discoveries of that world of light where 
no darkness shall enfold us nor mystery trouble us. 

One by one "we shall know as we are known." Voices will 
come to us out of the mist like the sound of many waters. Music 
softer than the harmony of the spheres shall sing down the hills of 
heaven, and in the home of "many mansions" loved one shall meet 
the "one gone before;" pastor and people shall be reunited, and 
there shall be no more sorrow or tears, and in the end "God shall 
be all in all." "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh 
ifl the morning."

SAMUEL2 LOVELAND (Thomasi) d in Glas,, Conn., 
Sept. 27, 1772, in the 95th year of his age. From Prof. Hoadley, 
State Librarian at Hartford, Conn., who has a copy of the First 
Cong. Ch. Rec. of that place: ^'Samuel Loveman m Lydia Barn- 
ard, Oct. 4, 1705." Glas. Town Records: "Samuel Loveland be- 
gan to beat the drum the first Sabbath in the month, which is the 
6th of April, 1701" (supposed for the purpose of calling the people 
to meeting). Colonial Records, 1706-1716: "At a meeting of the 
Governor and Council in Hartford, May 22, 171 2: Resolved, that 
an order be given the Treasurer to pay Samuel Loveman of Glas., 
a soldier in Col. Whitney ^s Reg. in the late expedition against 
Canada, JC3, i8s." Deed Records: "Joseph Dickinson to Samuel 
Loveland (March 2S, 1731)9 four acres of land with mansion 
house thereon standing. — Samuel Loveland to his son, Charles 
Loveland (March 31, 1731). — Samuel Loveland to Samuel Love 
land, Jr. (Nov. 28, i737)> forty acres of land. — Samuel Loveland 
to John Loveland, for the love and affection I bear towards him, 
that he may be accommodated with land to work upon. — Samuel 
Loveland to his daughter Beriah, wife of David Dickinson (Dec. 
22, 1756)." Samuel Loveland removed from this pi rt of Glaston- 
bury to that part which later became the northern part of the town 
of Marlborough. Marlborough was incorporated as a parish out 
of portions of Hebron, Glas. and Colchester. The first house in this 
section was built by him in 1747. Fourteen subscribers "hereto, in- 
habitants in Colchester, Hebron and Glastonbury" petitioned (May 
15, 1736) the General Assembly for a separate place of worship: 
"We would humbly show to your Honors our Difficult Circum- 
stances, our living so far from any place of the publick worship of 
God, some living seven, some eight miles and several of us have 
so weakly wives that are not able to go to any place of publick 
worship." They asked the privilege of "hiring an orthodox min- 
ister to preach the word to and amongst us." Samuel Loveland 
was one of these petitioners, and Charles Loveland and Nathan

Dunham signed a similar petition in 1737. On the first petition 
the Assembly granted the petitioners liberty to employ a minister, 
but did not release them from taxes for the support of the ministry 
in the ecclesiastical societies to which they respectively belonged.

SAMUEL8 LOVELAND, JR. (Samuel^, Thomasi), wash

Loveland to Samuel Loveland, Jr., forty acres, Nov. 28, 1735." 
Lyme, Conn., Records give: "Samuel* Loveland, Jr., m Rebecca 
Rowland, March 6, 1735, and had Samuel, b Dec. 12, 1735." In

land, Sen., of Little Egg Harbor, N. J., executor of the last will 
and testament of Samuel Loveland, deceased, to Daniel Ward, one 
piece of forty acres; dated Nov. i, 1797." This deed carries the 
New Jersey Lovelands back to Glas. Mrs. Thomas F. Loveland, 
New Gretna (formerly Egg Harbor), N. J., writes: "Charles and 
Samuel Loveland came from Conn, and settled here." From the 
above we conclude that Samuel » Loveland left Lyme for Egg 
Harbor after the birth of Samuel and had Charles . These two 
were in the Rev. War. The New Jersey Lovelands claim descent 
from these two brothers.

Capt. John 8 Loveland removed to Middletown about 1750. 
The records there show that he bought of Thomas Canfield, of 
Durham, for .£380 current money, "Land on the West Side of 
Connecticut River, on the i ith Day of July, in the 24th year of 
the Reign of Our Sovereign Lord, George the Second, of Great 
Britain, &c.. King, Anno Domini 1750." It appears he was a 
man of public spirit. He opened a street through his land from 
what is now South Main Street to High Street and gave it to the 
town, and it is called Loveland Street. Another proposal of his 
and the action taken in Town Meeting was as follows: 

To the Inhabitants of the Town of Middletown at their Lawfull Meeting 
held in said Middletown the 24th of December, 1764: — The Memorial of 
John Loveland of said Middletown humbly showeth and proposeth to this 
Meeting that on proper Incouragement he would Build a Wharf of one hun- 
dred and 20 feet in Length East and West, Butting Southerly on Sumner's 
Creek and of the Width of 50 feet whereof the Westernmost half part should 
be free at all times for the use of the people of Middletown to land Wood 
and lay Lumber on Provided that the Remainder Shall be at your Memori- 
alist own Use for him and his heirs &c., and that if the Town Desire or it 
shall be judged Reasonable he would give a Two Rod Highway across the 
land about 15 Rods to lay next the River West of Highwater Mark in Ex- 
change &c. Praying that a Committee be appointed to act and make an 
agreement with him in Behalf of the Town for the Exchange &c. with full 
Power to pass the Title on Each Party and make such further Covenants 
about Building & Maintaining as shall be thought Reasonable and as in duty 
bound shall ever pray. Dated in Middletown, 24th December, 1764.

On the foregoing Memorial, Voted: That Seth Wetmore, Mathew Tal- 
cott, Esq's, and Mr. Richard Alsop be a committee to view said place and 
Consider any Challenges that any private person or persons may have on 
said place or any part thereof and fully to Compromise and accommodate 
the matter if it can be done and fully to pass Deeds &c., Take Deeds of 
Conveyance and make Records &c., if not to make Report to the Town at 
next Meeting. Past. Test., Sbth Wetmore, Moderator. 

At a Meeting of the Inhabitants of the Town of Middletown Regularly 
Assembled in said Town on the 20th of August, A. D. 1765, By Special 
Order of the Selectmen of said Town — ^The Report of Messrs Seth Wetmore, 
Esq. I Mathew Talcott, Esq., and Richard Alsop Relative to Capt. John 
Loveland building a Wliarf at the Creek — Read and thereon Voted that the 
said Loveland have added to the Sixty Feet, Ten Feet more and if they sup- 
pose the Width of the Wharf to be too little to make it wider at the River 
and make proper Deeds and Covenants as in his said Loveland *s Memorial. 

Test., Joseph Ci^Rk, Town Clerk. 

The Wharf was built and known for years as Loveland's 
Wharf, and the street was opened, not directly along the bank of 
the river but some distance back, leaving a lot between it and the 
river, which in 1797 was set off to Samuel^ Loveland, grandson 
of John Loveland. * 

On the 8th day of December, 1775, John Loveland made the 
following will: 

I, John Loveland, of the County of Hartford and Colony of Connecticut, 
being at present in a languishing state of health and knowing that it is ap- 
pointed for all men once to die and the time most uncertain and being 
through the great goodness of God of Sound disposing mind and memory 
and esteeming it duty to sett my bouse in order before my earthly Taber- 
nacle be dissolved. Do make my last will and Testament in manner and 
form following. I recommend my soul into the hands of God who gave it 
and my body to the earth to a decent and Christian burial at the direction 
of my executors hereafter named. Hoping for a free pardon of all my sins 
and a resurrection to Eternal Life- in and through the merits sake alone of 
Jesus Christ my Great Redeemer and Advocate and as touching such 
worldly goods wherewith it has pleased God to bless me in this life my will 
is that after my just debts and funeral charges be first paid and satisfied out of 
them the remainder be disposed of in manner and form following, viz.: I 
give and bequeath to Susannah, my well beloved wife, one-third part of my 
Personal Estate to be at her disposal forever, and also the use and improve- 
ment of the one-half of my Real Estate for and during the term of her nat- 
ural life, and this I give to her in Lieu of her Dower in my Estate and also 


The Laveland Genealogy. 289 

to enable her to afford any assistance to my younger children as she may 
judge them to stand in need of. And further my will is and I do hereby 
order that all the rest and Residue of my Estate, both Real and Personal, be 
divided into Eight equal parts to be disposed of in manner and form follow- 
ing: I give and bequeath to my oldest daughter Susannah, now the wife of 
Cap. James Jones, and to her heirs and assigns forever, one of said Eighth parts. 
I give and bequeath to my second daughter, Mary Loveland, and to her heirs 
and assigns forever, one of said Eighth parts. I give and bequeath to my 
third daughter Lucy, now the wife of William Paddock, and to her heirs and 
assigns forever, one of said Eighth parts. I give and bequeath to my daugh- 
ter, Mehetable I^oveland, and to her heirs and assigns forever, one of said 
Kighth parts. I give and bequeath to my only son Samuel, and to his heirs 
and assigns, three of said Eightli parts. I give and bequeath to my young- 
est daughter Martlia, and to her heirs and assigns forever, one of said Eighth

Real Estate that I have herein given my wife the use and improvement of 
during her life Shall at the Expiration of her term be Divided and Distrib-

And further my will is that what I have or shall advance for the settlement 
of any of my daughters at their marriage shall be accoimted as part of their 
proportion aforesaid in my estate which may be seen in my account of ad- 
vancement for my oldest daughter and which has been the mle I have en- 
deavored to keep with respect to my three daughters so as to make them 
Equal, which I have particularly aimed at. My will is that the Family I 
leave be provided for one year after my Decease out of my Estate. My fur- 
ther will and pleasure is that if my Executors hereinafter named Shall 
Esteem it for ye Better Interest of my children to sell or dispose of any or 
all of my Land in the Township of Hartford or Glastonbury, then and in 
such case I do hereby authorize and fully impower them to do the same. 
And I do hereby appoint and nominate my well beloved wife Susannah and 
my son-in-law, James Jones, to be Executors to this my Last Will and Test- 
ament. In Witness whereof I have hereunto Sett my hand and Seal this 
8th Day of December, A. D. 1775, and in the i6th year of His Majesties 
Reign — John Lovki^and. 

Signed, sealed, pronounced and declared in presence of 

Jabez Hamlin, 
John Paddock, 
Samueiv Paddock. 

The will approved and recorded April 8, 1776, and his estate 
was appraised on the loth of April, A. D. 1776, at .£2,903, i8s., 
3d. (Lib. 3, p. 350), and was distributed on the 24th of March, 
1777. It included 4 houses, 4 barns, 2 stores and a wharf, a black- 

390 The Loveland Genealogy, 

smith shop, a fishing place and half of the fish house, one-quarter 
of a schooner, 4 horses, 2 yoke of oxen, 10 cows, 9 head of youn^ 
stock, 80 sheep and lambs, about 140 acres of land, besides house- 
hold goods and farming utensils, etc. The homestead was set off 
to his wife, and in 1787, when her portion of the real estate was 
distributed, it was set off to Samuel Loveland, his only son. 

In the inventory of Capt. John Loveland's estate, among a lot 
of household goods and farming utensils, are mentioned a sword, 
valued at is., 6d.; a pair of old pistols, 6 shillings, and a book of 
explanations of commands, 2 shillings. 

It is supposed that he was a Captain of militia, but the writer 
has found no record showing whether he took any active part in 
any of the wars of his day. 

John Loveland and his wife Susannah were buried in the old 
burying ground in the north part of the city of Middletown, near 
the river and the Portland Ferry. The inscriptions on the grave 
stones are as follows: 



Who died Jan. the 30th, 1776, in 
the 60th year of his age. 

My children and grandchildren all, 
Death here to you aloud doth call; 
Your earthly father is now dead, 
And you're survivors in his stead. 
Remember you must die also, 
And to the dust must shortly go; 
See then you walk in ^^dsdom's road, 
*Till you're prepared to dwell with God. 




Who died July 14, 1784, in the 
63d year of her age. 

All changed the body seems to say, 
This life a shadow fleets away; 
Ye children hear the solemn voice, 
Let heaven and virtue be your choice.

Capt. John* Loveland, when a boy, lived for a long time with 
Col. Mathew Talcott, one of Middletown's prominent men. 
Early in life he became possessed with a desire to go to sea. The 
following is a copy of his "Protection," now in possession of the 
writer, his son, George H.: 


' [coat of arms.] 

No. 33edt 

I, Jedediah Huntington, Collector of the District of New 
London, do hereby certify that John Loveland, an American Seaman, aged 
Eighteen, or thereabouts, of the height of five feet, eight inches and a half, 
of dark complexion, has this day produced to me proof in the manner di- 
rected in tlie act entitled: *'An act for the relief and protection of American 
Seaman/' and pursuant to the said act, I do hereby certify that the said 
John Loveland is a citizen of the United States of America. 

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal of office, this 
nth day of May, 1803. JBD. Huntington, Collector. 

His first voyages were to the West Indies. He continued in 
that trade for several years, and it was in one of these early voyages 
he narrowly escaped being impressed in the British naval service. 
He, with several other American seamen, were captured in a port 
in one of the West India Islands and taken on board an English 
man-of-war (Frigate Belvidere), but through the interference of 
the authorities of the port, who would not allow the pilots to take 
the ship to sea until the men were released, they escaped impress- 

It is not definitely known in what 3'ear he first took command 
of a vessel, but in 1810 he was master of a vessel in the trade be- 
tween Middletown, New York and Richmond, Petersburg and 

•^94 ^^^ Lov'eland Genealogy. 

Norfolk, Va., and continued in that trade during the War of 1S12. 
He followed the sea until' 1840. During the War of 1812 he was 
in command of the fast sailing vessel Torpedo. For a lime he 
successfully eluded the English vessels guarding the east end of 
Long Island, but he was finally captured by a British man-of-war 
while becalmed, losing his vessel and cargo and for a time his per- 
sonal liberty. 

He visited the Westero Reserve, Ohio, about this time, pur- 
chased 120 acres of land on the banks of Lake Erie, near Ashta- 
bula. But he soon gave up the project of turning farmer, built 
himself (18 14) a commodious house in Middletown, on the corner 
of South Main and Loveland Streets, on the site on which his 
grandfather's house formerly stood. In 1816 we find him part 
owner and master of the new schooner John and engaged in trade 
with Virginia and other southern ports. In 1820 he sailed on a 
foreign voyage and was shipwrecked in the Mediterranean Sea, in 
a storm. He and his crew all escaped safely to shore. From 
1820 to 1823 he had command of the schooner Gold Hunter, and 
made many profitable voyages in her and brought home much 
gold from his coasting and West India voyages. . From 1823 to 
1827 he made many profitable voyages to the West Indian Islands 
in the brigs Packet and Washington, his cargoes being largely of 
horses and oxen. From 1827 to his retirement from the sea he 
was in command of the sloop Neptune in the coasting trade be- 
tween Middletown and New York. 

The closing years of his life were spent in quiet comfort in his 
home in Middletown. He was a member of the Congregational 
Church there, and a Whig in politics. He was a kind husband 
and father and a highly respected citizen. — G. H. L.

CAPT. SAMUEL* LOVELAND (John«, Samuel*) was b 
in Middletown, Conn., Dec. 10, 1808. He was named after his 
father's brother, who d a few weeks previous to his birth. He m 
in N. Y. City, Sept. 23, 1832, Almira Christiana Francisco, b there 
July 15, 1813, d at New Brighton, Staten Island, N. Y., July 22, 
1865. He d there May 21, 1868. Her mother was Leah Kipp, 
oldest dau. of Henry and Catharine Doremus Kipp, and sister of 
Christina Kipp. Capt. Samuel Loveland began his seafaring life 
with his father in Nov., 1824. They sailed from Middletown in 
the brig Packet, with a cargo of horses and merchandise, for the 
island of Antigua, West Indies. There is no record that he ever 
sailed with his father again, but some time after he made voyages 
from New York City to the West Indies and southern ports of 
the United States, and to Europe — Lisbon, Amsterdam and other 
ports. Later he was in the trade between New York and Galves- 
ton, before Texas became a State. Still later he was in the em- 
ploy of the Bulkley Bros., of Fairfield, Conn. They owned the 
line of packets (Union Line) running between New York and 
Charleston, S. C. Later he was given command of one of their 
vessels (Brig Moses). It was in her he encountered on the Jersey

coast the wintry gale which wrecked the ship John Minturn and 
in which the pilot, Thomas Freeborn, lost his life. Capt. Love- 
land's wife and adopxted son, John Henry, a little child, were with 
him. They considered it providential that they did not share the 
fate of the Minturn. In 1846 he was given command of a new- 
ship (Fairfield). He sailed in her about eight and a half years as 
a packet between New York and Charleston, occasionally tak- 
ing a cargo of cotton and rice to Liverpool, returning to New 
York with passengers; sometimes going to New Orleans or Ap- 
alachicola, and thence to European ports, returning with passen- 
gers. In 1854 the Bulkleys gave him command of another new^ 
ship (Mary Ogden, 969 tons). He took command at Warren, R. 
I., and sailed from there to Charleston and took in a cargo of 
rice and cotton for Havre, France, and returned to New York 
with freight and passengers. He continued in this trade two years. 
Sept., 1856, he went up the Saguenay River, a branch of the St. 
Lawrence, and took in a cargo of deals for London, £ng. His 
last voyage in the Mary Ogden was from New York to Antwerp, 
Oct., 1859. His wife was with him and they had a rough voyage 
of twenty-three days to Flushing. They visited many places of 
interest in Holland and the city of Brussels. The Bulkleys now 
put him in command of the ship Hero. At the time he received 
his orders he and his wife were attending the anniversary of the 
Fulton Street Prayer Meeting, Sept. 24, i860. The notice was a 
short one and within twenty-four hours she was on her way to 
Antwerp. He made two more voyages to Antwerp and then de- 
cided to quit the sea. This Christian sailor led a seafaring life for 
thirty-eight years, and during all that time we have no record of 
his meeting with any serious mishap. He had the confidence and 
patronage of one of the best New England firms. He and his 
wife were members of the Methodist Church and strong advocates 
of total abstinence, and as strongly opposed to slavery. They 
were married by the Rev. Henry Chase, pastor of the Mariners' 
Church, in Roosevelt Street, N, Y. She was a teacher previous 
to marriage. She accompanied her husband on many of his voy- 
ages, at one time spending a week in Paris, sightseeing. It was 
Capt. Loveland's custom to have religious services on board the

ship at sea on the Sabbath, inviting those of the crew who felt dis- 
posed to attend. He would read a part of a sermon and sing and 
pray devoutly. The meetings were pleasant and salutary. Their 
adopted son attended the Brooklyn, N. Y., schools and went on 
several voyages with his father. In August, i860, he sailed from 
New York to Liverpool in the ship Red Gauntlet. In Dec. of 
that year he sailed in the ship Talisman from New York to San 
Francisco. He died there after two or three years' residence and 
is buried in the Lone Mountain Cemetery. After Capt. Love- 
land's retirement from the sea he accepted the appointment of as- 
sistant governor (Nov., 1863) and steward of the Sailors' Snug 
Harbor, at New Brighton, N. Y., Mrs. Loveland to act as matron. 
Their duties were to look after the welfare of about four hundred 
old or disabled men, most of them "old tars," who were there 
comfortably provided for. They spent the remainder of their 
lives there and are buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, L. I. 
Mrs. Loveland, when a girl, found pleasure in doing kind acts for 
needy people. She frequently visited the alms house in the village 
where she lived, carrying flowers and reading the Bible to the old, 
feeble women there. Some time after her marriage she became a 
member and then secretary of the Mariners' Family Industrial So- 
ciety of the port of New York, whose object was to furnish relief 
to the needy widows of seamen. It was through the efforts of this 
society that legislative aid was obtained to build the Mariners' 
Family Asylum on Staten Island. She was also for some years 
one of the managers of the Female Guardian Society of New 
York, under whose management the Home of the Friendless in 
Fourteenth Street was carried on, and were also the proprietors of 
the Advocate and Guardian, a paper devoted to the purposes of 
the society. She did much earnest work in both of these societies, 
writing articles for the paper and going on journeys to look after 
the welfare of the children that were placed in homes at a distance 
from New York. She was a talented writer and through all the 
early struggles of the society was ever ready to toil in season and 
out of season. Many heart-breathed effusions from her pen are 
found in the Advocate. The stanzas addressed to Jenny Lind, 
which brought the gift of five hundred dollars to the Home in a

time of special need, show a high order of talent Her frequent 
voyages with her husband made her familiar with the perils of 
seamen and the wants and exposures of their bereaved and often 
destitude families. The following lines from a poem written by 
her in behalf of the Mariners^ Family Industrial Society, indicate 
the type of feeling that prompted her to untiring effort: 

And 'mid the city's wild unrest 

Heaves the young widow's aching breast — 

The sailor's child is here; 
The sailor's mother, grey with care, 
For her lost boy sends up a prayer, 

While few her angtush cheer. 

Ah! selfish motives, sway us not! 

We fain would cheer the mourner's lot — 

The widow's tear would dry; 
Would hush the orphan's cry for bread, 
And bid the hungry all be fed, 

And every want supply. 

From the twenty-second annual report of the Mariners' Fam- 
ily Industrial Society and Mariners' Family Asylum, 1866: 

It is with great sorrow we chronicle the death of two of our 
most devoted managers of the board during the past year: Mrs. 
Capt. S. Loveland, one of the founders of this society and institu- 
tion and for several years its secretary, and Mrs. T. Truslow. 
And while we must ever gratefully and tenderly cherish their 
memory in our hearts, we feel it due to the living and the dead, 
here to offer a tribute of love to their memories. 

In attempting a brief memorial of this highly esteemed and 
rarely gifted lady, your secretary feels her utter incomp>etence to 
give anything of a just tribute to her memory, and might fain 
wish that the mantle of her able and distinguished predecessor 
might fall upon her, that like her she might be able to portray the 
character of the saintly departed. It was not her privilege per- 
sonally to know Mrs. Loveland, but from her intimate friends and 
co-workers in the society we here represent, we catch gleamings 
of noble life, of lofty character, of inspired devotion to the cause 

The Loveland Genealogy. 399 

of her Divine Master, that reflect a heavenly radiance all along her 
pathway. Gleamings emanating from the glorious effulgence of 
the great "I am," gilding the coronet of Jehovah, and reflecting a 
bright halo of glory upon the brow of the immortal Mrs. Love- 
land, with whom angels hold sweet converse of earth's holy mis- 
sions of charity and love. Possessing rare endowments, with a 
mind highly cultivated, a lofty purpose of soul, acute observation 
and almost intuitive perception, her strong mind readily grasped a 
subject and comprehended it in all its bearings, and loving and 
firm in purpose, no sacrifice was accounted too great — no toil too 
arduous — no obstacle too difHcult to overcome in the accomplish- 
ment of what her heart prompted as duty. In testimony of this, 
the M. F. I. Society, from its earliest history to the present, bears 
ample proof. She with Mrs. R. Lambert and our beloved first 
directress, Mrs. Hawkins, twenty-two years ago connected with 
the Female Bethel Society of New York, conceived the idea of 
merging that society into the present organization, and from that 
time forth, during the eight years of legislative lobbying, writing, 
hoping, fearing, she ceased not her untiring efforts until the de- 
sire of her heart was accomplished. She lived to witness the lay- 
ing of the corner-stone of our noble edifice. She lived to see from 
its lofty height the flag of our nation triumphantly wave — that 
flag, the stars and stripes made by the trembling hands of the old 
ladies sheltered within these hallowed walls. She lived to receive 
the blessing of those ready to perish but for her foresight and 
timely aid, ere she was bidden to "come up hither" to enter upon 
a higher, holier sphere of usefulness. One of her last acts of de- 
votion to this cause was to gather from the reports of the society a 
complete history of the same, which has been published for its use. 
The temperance cause found in Mrs. Loveland a warm advocate 
and able supporter. With voice and pen she assailed the greatest 
evil and scourge of our land. Many rare gems of poetry which 
graced the temperance journals at that time, and even to the pres- 
ent day, were hers. She was the reputed author of "The Inebri- 
ate's Daughter," than which no lines ever stirred the fountains 
of the soul more deeply: 

Go. feel what I have felt 

300 The Loveland Genealogy. 

Well might we imagine her sympathetic heart to feel this stingy: 

And stamped upon her brow so mild, 

That withering curse, the Drunkard's Child! 

And the deep emotions of her soul in closing: 

Tell me I hate the bowl! 

Hate is a feeble word: 
I loathe, abhor, my very soul 

With deep disgust is stirred. 
Whene'er I see, or hear, or tell, 

Of the dark beverage of hell. 

Seamen, for whom she labored so earnestly, listen to these 
words as though blazoned upon the light-house of eternity, and 
from her voice wafted across life's ocean to you: JVo Drunkard 
shall enherit the Kingdom of Heaven. 

Of the social and domestic virtues and Christian character of 
Mrs. L., we hesitate to speak, feeling that we tread upon holy 
ground. To her loving husband, kindred, and intimate friends so 
sorely bereaved, we leave this sacred privilege, feeling that they 
only can fully appreciate her true worth and the sweet fragrance 
of her Christian graces.

Berlin, Conn., and Springfield, Mass. ; later in New York City 
for several years. His health failing from the confinement of this 
work he decided to try farming. In company with his father-in- 
law, James LaTour, they emigrated with their families (May i, 
1841) to Bloomfield, arriving there on the 21st of May. They 
entered government land in the Oak Openings, Mr. Loveland 120 
acres and Mr. LaTour 80. A few years later Mr. Loveland added 
40 acres more to his first purchase, and still later another 40. 
Farming was new husiness to both these men, but they soon got 
used to it and liked it and prospered. In the winter of 1854-5 ^^* 
Loveland and his wife made a visit to their old home in Conn., 
and twice afterward. They also visited sons in Kansas and Ne- 
braska. He was stricken with paralysis Feb'y 16, 1SS6, and four 
days later passed peacefully away. His estate fell to his wife by 
will. She continued on the farm until 1892, when she sold it and 
bought a smaller farm in Spring Prairie, same county. Her 
youngest son carries on this farm for her.

Mr. Loveland attended the Middletown schools in his boyhood 
and obtained a fair education. April, 1844, he began hi« appren- 
ticeship at house carpentering, which was terminated when he 
reached his majority. Before beginning business for himself he 
worked at his trade several years, either as journeyman or partner. 
In the fall of 1854 he built himself a shop and began business on 
his own account. For twenty-two years he was master builder in 
his native town, erecting some of the finest and best buildings 
there. Among them the South Congregational Church, costing 
$75,000; the Middlesex Assurance Co.'s building, the Episcopal 
Chapel at South Farms, and many costly dwellings. Nov. 8, 
1876, he went to California. He built several stores in Oakland. 
Aug. 2, 1877, he was joined there by Mrs. Loveland, and the next 
month they moved to Menlo Park and he went to work for Gov. 
Stanford on his Palo Alto ranch. During the summer of 1878 he 
worked on J. C. Flood's house and on Gov. Latham's place, re- 
suming his work at the ranch the next year. In 1882 he was 
given charge of the work on the lower ranch. Sept. 13, 1886, 
while passing the ranch stables on his w^ay to work, his horse be-

came frightened by the barking of a dog and ran away, striking 
one of the wheels against a tree and throwing him out. He re- 
ceived inward bruises which terminated the next day in paralysis 
of his left sjjde. He died the 17th. The funeral took place from 
the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. Mrs. Stanford and others 
sent beautiful flowers. He was interred in Union Cemetery at 
Redwood City. Kind and sympathizing friends did all they could 
to alleviate Mrs. Loveland's sudden affliction. Gov. Stanford paid 
the funeral expenses. 

Mrs. Loveland now lives at Menlo Park in the home left her 
by her husband. She received the appointment of postmistress 
there under President Harrison, and in Jan'y, 1893, was reap- 
pointed. Their daughter, Emma C, was an accomplished musi- 
cian and gave instruction in vocal and instrumental music, piano 
and violin. She was the organist and leader of the choir of the 
Presbyterian Church. She was of a sweet and kindly disposition, 
an active church worker and ever thought of others before self. 
Her sister, Mary F., was a woman of more than ordinary attrac- 
tions. With large, black eyes, comely features, easy manners, 
neat and tasteful attire, she was noticeable in any society. Her 
mind was active, observant and of quick perception. Among 
friends she was sprightly, buoyant and full of life and cheer. A 
lover of music, with a good voice well trained and true, she was a 
valued aid in all social entertainments. She was generous in dis- 
position with a large sense of justice and had no sympathy with 
meanness. As a friend she was true and loyal. Her character 
and her attainments made her a successful teacher in the kinder- 
garten and public school. She united with the Presbyterian 
Church four years before her death, and the crowning joy of her 
life was to witness her husband an avowed disciple of her Lord. 
When near her last hour they together partook the memorials of 
His death. 

Alice J., another sister, is an accomplished scholar and teacher. 
She loves her profession and her specialty is the kindergarten. 
She is also a great home body, and between the two charmers she 
is content with either, though the former at this date (1894) de- 
mands the larger share of her affections.

Mr. Loveland, in common with his brothers and sisters and his 
boys, had the advantages of the Middletown schools and acquired 
in them a sound, practical education. In 1846, with the consent of 
his parents, he began a seafaring life with his brother, Capt. Sam- 
uel Loveland, shipping from New York in the Fairfield. He 
continued with his brother five years. Tiring of the short coast- 
wise and European voyages, he concluded to take a longer one 
around the world. On the joth of October, 1851, he went on 
board the clipper ship Wild Pigeon as she lay at anchor in the 
East River bound for San Francisco. On Monday, the 13th, 
weather favorable, Mr. Loveland at the wheel, the ship weighed 
anchor and proceeded to sea. She crossed the equator Nov. loth, 
and early in December doubled Cape Horn. Jan'y 7, 1852, lat. 
5° south, the crew witnessed a total clipse of the moon. The 

The Loveland Genealogy, 309 

equator was again crossed, J an'y loth, in Ion. 119° west, and the 
ship came to anchor in San Franciscp harbor, Jan'y 27, at 6 P. M. 
The cargo discharged and a new one taken in, on the 1 6th of Feb'y 
the ship cleared for Hong Kong, China. She took the N. E. 
trade winds about the 8th of March, crossed the i8oth meridian of 
west longitude on the nth and came to anchor in Hong Kong 
harbor on the 30th. Here Mr. Loveland found himself one day 
behind in his reckoning and was obliged to drop the 31st of March 
from his journal. The ship was visited here by the officers of the 
U. S. sloop-of-war Saratoga and the war steamer Susquehana, 
who were looking after Uncle Sam's interests in that quarter of the 
globe. A few days later the ship came to anchor below Canton, 
took in a cargo of Banca tin, tea and silks, and on the 4th of May 
made sail for New York, crossed the equator May 31st, another 
total eclipse of the moon July 2d, passed the Cape of Good Hope 
July 19th, took the trade winds Aug. 5th, crossed the equator 
again Aug. 18th, and arrived at New York Sept. 10, 1852, mak- 
ing the voyage in just eleven months. 

After a vacation of three months Mr. Loveland shipped again 
for California in a larger vessel. This time he did not circumnav- 
igate the earth, but returned by way of Cape Horn. While in 
California he made several trips from San Francisco to Puget 
Sound for cargoes of piles and square timber, the last time going 
as second mate. After his return from California in 1854 he gave 
up the sea and went to work with his brother William in Middle- 
town, building houses. He followed the joiner's trade mainly un- 
til his retirement from active business in 1888. He visited his 
brother John in Wisconsin in 1857, where he became acquainted 
with Miss Christina LaTour, whom he afterward married at her 
sister's, Mrs. O. M. Smith, in Canandaigua. They lived in Middle- 
town awhile, but in 1861 concluded to try farming. They settled 
on a farm in Springfield, Wis., which Mr. Loveland owned. In 
1868 they sold out, returned to Middletown and built themselves a 
comfortable house at 15 Loveland St., in which they lived until 
their removal, 1888, to their new home, 527 Dixwell Ave., New 
Haven, Conn., where they now reside. 

3IO The Loveland Genealogy • 

Christina LaTour, his wife, came with her parents to Wiscon- 
sin when a child. She was a pioneer's daughter. Her education, 
though practical, was limited mainly to the pioneer schools. She 
was early trained by a wise mother in the useful domestic arts, and 
from breadmaker to dressmaker she carries a skilled hand. Her 
mother's death necessitated her living with her married sisters, and 
it was from the home of one of them that she passed to-a home of 
her own. She united with the South Congregational Church in 
Middletown in 1868 and immediately identified herself with the 
work of that church. She has a heart of sympathy for the afflicted 
and for homeless children. We find her doctor and nurse at the 
bedside of the sick, and sheltering and procuring homes for home- 
less children. After the death of her son's wife she assumed the 
care of Mildred, his infant daughter. This lovely little girl is now 
( 1895) a student in the New Haven schools. Her teacher speaks 
well of her and she bids fair to be an ornament to her sex. It is 
needless to say that Mrs. Loveland is proud of her three grand- 
children, and that they all worship her. We expect to hear a 
good report of these children as the years go by.

Middletown for several years, but desiring a larger field of opera-

& Billard in West Meriden, Conn. In 1853 he united with the 
Congregational Church there. Soon after his marriage (May 8) 
he settled in Paris, where he worked at his trade and farming. In 
i860 we find him back in Middletown in partnership with H. S. 
White as coal merchants. He retired from this business in 1875, 
and at thi« date we find him master builder in New Haven, Conn. 
In this town and vicinity he erected many costly and substantial 
buildings. In the spring of 1890 he received a proposal from his 
wife's cousin, Henry P. Baldwin, president of the Haiku Sugar 
Co. and manager of the company's plantation on the island of 
Maui, one of the Hawaiian Islands, to come and take charge of 
the carpenter work on the plantation of Hamakuapoko. He ac- 
cepted the offer, settled up his business and April 30, 1890, they 
started on their long westward journey, visiting relatives on the 
way. May 23d they bid sweet America good-bye and embarked 
on the Australia and steamed through the Golden Gate for Hono- 
lulu, arriving there the 30th of May. Friends and relatives met 
them at the wharf. Late in September their household goods ar- 
rived by the way of Cape Horn. Soon after they were pleasantly 
settled in Maui and Mr. Loveland took charge of the carpenter 
work on the plantation. He is now (1895) a citizen of the Ha- 
waiian Republic. 

Mrs. Loveland was the daughter of Marcus and Clarissa Fow- 
ler Linsley, natives of North Brantford, Conn. They "moved to 
Paris, Wis., in 1856, and while a citizen of this State he repre- 
sented his county in the legislature. After his wife's death he 
married again and moved to Belvidere, 111. Mrs. Linsley 's sister 
was the wife of Rev. Mr. Baldwin, missionary to the Sandwich 
Islands. His sons and daughters there are among the most prom- 
inent people of the new republic. Mrs. Loveland is a genuine 
Christian woman. It can be truthfully said of her as of one of 
old: "The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her. She 
worketh willingly with her hands. She looketh well to the ways 
of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness." In girl- 
hood she faithfully improved her school advantages and acquired 
a good education. She is fond of music and is an accomplished 
pianist. She taught her first school when fifteen years old. She

was an earnest worker in the North Congregational Church of 
Middletown, joining it at an early age. After removing to New 
Haven Mr. and Mrs. Loveland united with the Davenport Con- 
gregational Church. She is a passionate lover of flowers, and in 
the clime inhere she now lives she indulges this taste to the full. 
Her sons were members of the Davenport Church- They were 
young men of lovely character, refined and noble. They had cul- 
tivated minds, but an unfortunate illness in their boyhood sapped 
their constitutions, made them invalids and brought them to early 
graves. They are buried at New Haven, in Evergreen Cemetery.

"He was one whom you could always depend upon in any 
situation where he was placed. A thorough man in all his 
undertakings. Always prompt in church work; a sustain- 
ing prop in all church matters; a member for years of the 
board of education ; a prominent and helpful member of our 
grange; a loved husband and father. Such men are rare to 
be found and can hardly be spared. He will be greatly 
missed by the church as well as the town." 

145, family 200, Vol. II: Mrs. Laura V. Draper, d in Upland, 
Pa., Feb'y 21, 1895. From the Chester, Pa., Times: 



Mrs. Laura Draper, wife of John A. Draper, of Church street, 
died last evening shortly after 8 o'clock, at her home, of a compli- 
cation of diseases. The end came very peacefully. Realizing 
that the end was near, she bade her husband, little son James and 
other relatives farewell on Wednesday, then sank into unconscious- 
ness and remained in that state until death came. Occasionally she 
would sing and though weak and emaciated from the long combat 

The Loveland Genealogy. 

with disease, her voice was remarkably clear and sweet. It was a 
touching scene, this dying Christian on the banks of the river of 
death, singing her soul into the spirit land, and it brought many 
tears to the eyes of the watchers by the bedside. 

Mrs. Draper is the daughter of Thomas Earnshaw of this city, 
and after her marriage she moved to Upland, She was an active 
worker in the church, Sunday School and Endeavor Society as 
long as her health permitted, and as she possessed a voice of rare 
sweetness and power, her talents were employed in church music. 
She was still a member of the choir at the time of her death. She 
was 32 years of age. The funeral will take place on Sunday af- 
ternoon. Services will be held in the church at 2 o'clock, followed 
by interment at Hinkson's Corner. 


The funeral of Mrs. Laura Draper in Upland yesterday after- 
noon was attended by a great concourse of friends, fully 1,200 
people passing through the lecture room of the Methodist Church, 
where the casket was placed, and viewing the pale but peaceful 
face of the dead. All the ministers made feeling addresses upon 
the life work and character of the departed which brought tears to 
many eyes. The choir sang favorite hymns of the deceased mem- 
ber, whose vacant chair in the gallery was draped in her memory, 
and the congregation a'so softly sang a verse of a hymn often used 
by Mrs. Draper.
