The Goat is the emblem of that martial man, who wins a victorj' by 
the employment of pohcy rather than valor. It may betoken one that is 
willing to fare hard so he may be in high employment honored. 

The Leopard's Head is said to represent a valiant warrior, who en- 
terprises hazardous things, by force and courage.

The custom of using a Coat of Arms may be traced to very early 
times, as to the standard of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, of the Egyptians, 
and the Roman Eagles. From these times grew the customs of elans and 
families distinguishing themselves from others by signs and emblems. 
After a while it was considered a right of all noblemen to use a coat of 
ai'ms, no two families allowed to use the same. 

A coat of arms is composed of a shield or escutcheon on which the 
charges or emblems are depicted, often the charges have some relation to 
the names or residence of the user. 


The Anthony Coat of Arms, so emblematic of the characteristics of 
the Anthony family, the same traits of character thundering down 
through the centuries. 

Dr. Francis Anthony, of London, in the fifteenth century shook the 
British lion (see Biography), and when the walls fell that separated him 
from the College of Physicians, the British lion roared. 

In the eighteenth century when Susan B. Anthony attacked the 14th 
and 15th Amendments of the Constitution of the United States and cast 
her vote, being a woman and not a man, the American Eagle screamed. 

When George S. Anthony, of New Bedford, Mass., fitted up a whal- 
ing vessel, and for two years sailed in Australian waters with the only 
object in view to rescue six Fenian prisoners that were imprisoned for 
life, for love of country, in the English-Australian prison at Freemantle, 
he challenged the British navy with a whale ship, and snatched a half- 
dozen men from the jaws of the British lion, and sailed for America. 
The British warship, Georgetta, bore down on the Catalpa. "You have 
violated the colonial laws," says the commander. "I will give you fifteen 
minutes to heave to and I'll blow your masts out unless you do." The 
next salutation was a solid shot across the the bow of the Catalpa. 
Captain Anthony replied: "This ship is sailing under the American flag, 
and she is on the high seas. If you fire on me, I warn you that you are 
firing on the American flag." The Georgetta steered away in magnifl- 
cent style, and as she turned, the banner of Britain displayed its folds, and 
the blazoned lion, shimmering in the sun, seemed to make a gesture of 

defiance with his tail by curving it between his heels and the Catalpa 

sailed serenely on, the star spangled banner floating bravely in the breeze.

It is my purpose in these pages to give a simple line of nar- 
rative of the descendants of John Anthony, following down 
through the different generations in the several branches, de- 
scribing more or less minutely the character of persons whos2 
names are well known to the public, having in their day figured 
prominently before the world and achieved more or less success 
upon the field of human endeavor; also speak of many others 
less conspicuous, humble, yet earnest, individuals of different 
generations, though I fail to do them justice. 

It is but a token of love and grateful acknowledgment of 
the noble deeds of our progenitors to take their names from 
the perishing records of the present and place them in durable 
form for affectionate remembrance as fragrant family 

The history of the Anthony family in the old world goes 
back as far as the name of Antony, Antonii, Antonio, Antonie, 
and Anthony are found, and the familiar names of Abraham, 
Isaac, Jacob, Mark, Luke and John have been family names in 
every household down through the centuries to 1904, the name 
John outnumbering all others at the present time. 

Our direct line starts with William Anthony, 1495, Cologne, 
Germany, who went to London, England, as the chief graver 
of the mint and seals to King Edward VI, Queen Mary and 
Queen Elizabeth. 

'^ The line of connection between this ancient family and John 
Anthony, the emigrant, has not been established and fortified 
by complete and satisfactory evidence, but numerous circum- 
stances point in this one direction. The very characteristics 
of the race come thundering down through the centuries, and 
we that are living in this nineteenth century are justly proud 
of our ancestors who figured among the early founders of the 
nation. To exhibit the virtues of such men, we only need 
record their deeds and give a true expression of their principles 
that called forth those deeds to the observation of mankind. 
Our more immediate concern is with the descendants of John 
Anthony, of London, from the time he landed on the American 
shores in 1634, down to the present blessed era of freedom, 



We make up our humble tale from many disjointed frag- 
ments, and we fear it will be impossible to weave in so many 
sketches and anecdotes of the personages who have a]>peared 
upon the stage of action, in a systematic manner. 

The gathering of these statistics is an enormous task, which 
tact can only be appreciated by any one that has made the ef- 
fort. In completing this work, we find difficulties formidable 
and perfection hopeless ; but not appalled at unkind criticism, 
we venture to submit the following pages for the perusal of all 
who are immediately or remotely interested, while we are 
aware that further research, more time and expense, would 
produce a volume of greater interest and more satisfaction, but 
we venture the volume will find readers wherever the name 
Anthony exists. 

It has been my desire to achieve something for the good of 
the present age, and to benefit posterity, and to this end ( with 
purely unselfish motives) the writer has devoted many hours 
of tedious and perplexing labor, only relaxing his efforts when 
the midnight oil and the Anthony grit ran low and there was 
not vitality enough left to lick a postage stamp. 

Charles L. Anthony. 


The compiler of these pages did not expect, when he com- 
menced tracing the hne of his ancestry, to bring anything be- 
fore the public, but some years of careful research brought 
forth so much interesting matter in this relation, and the 
number of the families by the name of Anthony being so much 
more numerous than was anticipated, and so many facts 
worthy of notice came to view, that the subject was pursued to 
its present issue. This long continued and very tedious re- 
search contains but little interest to any outside the family re- 
presented, unless, perhaps, to some lover of genealogical lore. 

The research that I have made amid many discouragements 
impresses deeply the conviction that much remains unrecorded 
which should have found page room, and much valuable in- 
formation and many important facts to perfect a suitable 
genealogy exist in various family records and other manu- 
scripts scattered through the country that should appear in 
this l>ook. 

I have spared no pains, time or money to perfect this work; 
have searched the ancient biographies, bits of odds and ends of 
old Anthony MSS in the British Museum, London, pieced to- 
gether by expert hands, every book, paper or magazine in the 
land where the name Anthony has appeared — all this gathered 
for future reference. But as the work has been assumed per- 
sonally without any assurance of patronage or remuneration, 
much interesting matter is omitted that mig'ht, under other ^cir- 
cumstances, have been added for the gratification of those in- 
terested, but cost forbids any large venture. Perplexity and 
toil beyond all calculation have discouraged my attempt. So 
much labor and correspondence, so many letters unanswered, 
unnoticed (there seems to be no remedy for such a disease), so 
many folios searched in vain, so much travel and expense of 
time and money to bring order out of chaos, that it never 
would be undertaken the second time by the same person, or I 
might change the "m" in the word "same" to "n" and say, it 
would never be undertaken the second time by any sane 

It was a strange coincidence that at the same time I was 
pondering over the descent of the Anthony family in America, 


that my name-sake, Charles Anthony of London, was investi- 
gating the origin of the family in England, and to him we are 
indebted for the valuable information that follows. 

In July, 1895, I wrote to one. Charles Anthony, Hampton 
Bishop, Herford. London, and in August a reply. came to the 
effect that he had sent my letter to his son Charles in Buenos 
Ayres, South America, who was a specialist on all genealogical 
subjects, and to my surprise he sent me the origin of his family 
as well as the origin of my own, traced from bits of odds and 
ends of old Anthony MSS in the British Museum, London, 
with charts and diagrams, showing a master hand in all genea- 
logical lore. As you read his correspondence you will be satis- 
fied that further research is unnecessary. 

Casilla 1045, Buenos Ayres, South America. 

Sept. 28, 1895. 
Charles L. Anthony. 

Dear Sir: — Enclosed you will find pedigree of our branch 
of the family traced from Robert Anthony, hving in the latter 
half of the seventeenth century. Whether we are connected to 
the Anthonys of London (your family) is uncertain. I also 
enclose pedigree of your family as far as I was able to trace it 
from printed matter in manuscript rooms British Museum be- 
fore I left England at the beginning of 1890. There are a 
great many old MSS in the British Museum referring to 
Derick and Charles Anthony, chief gravers of the mint, enough 
ii: fact for a biographical sketch of them both. There is no 
doubt that a pedigree should contain as many biographies of 
the people treated as possible, otherwise it is of little value and 

The MSS of Charles Anthony in the British Museum to 
which I refer, in the time of Edward VI, Queen Mary and 
Queen Elizabeth, relate to coinage and the engraving of seals, 
lots of municipal seals engraved by said Charles Anthony and 
father. They are to be found together with various pedigrees 
in the following volumes of MSS in B. M. Add. 5751, Herl 
1463, Herl 1504, Herl 1096, Add. 5533, Herl 1444, Add. 
1362. I do not mention pages as it would l)e worth your 
while to look through volumes mentioned. 

I see you speak of family record from 1550 to 1895. P^^" 
mit me to point out that Dr. Francis Anthony's pedigree can 
be traced back with certainty from relatives to William An- 
thony, Cologne, Germany, living certainly in 1495. Compara- 
tively it would be more accurate to put 1495- 1895, or say 
four centuries of Anthonys. 



The arms of Anthony in the Bedford visitation of 1634. 
being the same with difference of crescent for second son as 
those given in the fnller pedigree of London visitation of 1568 
shows, I think, beyond a donbt that the Anthonys of Bedford 
were descended from the same WilHam Anthony of Cologne, 
Germany, Hving in the first part of the fifteenth century, 
though the descent may not perhaps be exactly as suggested. 

Could 1 help you at any time in any heraldic matter such 
a," marshaling, diffusing or tracing the families of any coats 
dis]dayed in genealogy, should be pleased to do so. 

I will now close by asking you a favor, that is, that should 
you ( as it is not probable) be able to trace any relationship 
between our families you will be kind enough to let me have a 
complete copy of your pedigree down to the year 1700, as I 
see you have information that I do not possess, and assist me 
greatly in any future research I may make on my return to 
I'uigland. Many thanks for the kind promise of your book 
when published. I shall look forward to it with interest and 

Hoping to hear from you again soon, I remain. 
Yours truly, with compliments of the season, 

C. Anthony, 

Buenos Ayres, South America.

Every name has an individual number at the left. The head of each 
family has a tracing number at the right, which locates his family 

Example : 

1846. Charles L. Anthony (1862). 

1862 locates the family record and reverses the number, thus: 
1862. Charles L. Anthony (1846). 

1846 places him back in his father's family, and his father's tracing- 
number carries him back to the tracing numbers of his fore-fathers 
and back to the ancestor, John, ist. 
In this manner the babe of 1904 can be traced back to the babe of 1607.

DR. FRANCIS ANTHONY, London, born 1550, died 
1623. A very learned physician and chemist of the last cen- 
tury. His father was an eminent goldsmith in the city of 
London and had employment of considerable value in the jewel 
office of Queen Elizabeth. This son was born April 16, 1550, 
and having been carefully instructed in the first rudiments of 
learning at home, was sent, about the year 1569 to the Uni- 
versity of Cambridge, where he studied with great diligence 
and success and some time in the year 1574 took the degree of 
Master of Arts. It appears from his writings that he applied 
himself for many years and studied the theory and practice of 
chemistry, leaving Cambridge at the age of 40. He began 
soon after his arrival, to publish to the world the effects of his 
chemical studies, and in the year 1598 sent abroad his first 
treatise concerning the excellency of a medicine drawn from 
gold. He commenced medical practice in London without a 
license from the College of Physicians, and after six months 
was called before the President and Censors of the College A. 
D. 1600. 

He was interdicted practice ; for disregarding this injunc- 
tion, he was fined five pounds and committed to prison, whence 
he was released by a warrant of the Lord Chief Justice. The 
college however got him recommitted and Anthony submitted. 

Being again prosecuted for the same ofifense and refusing to 
pay a heavy fine, he was kept in prison eight months until re- 
leased on petition of his wife on the grounds of poverty in 
1602. But he continued to practice in defiance of the college 
and further proceedings were threatened but not carried out, 
probably because Anthony had powerful friends in court. 

His practice consisted chiefly, if not entirely, in the prescrip- 
tion and sale of a secret remedy called "Aurum Potabile," 
from which he derived a considerable fortune. 

He died May 26, 1623, leaving two sons, John and Charles. 
John became a physician in London and Charles practiced at 
Bedford. According to the writer in the Biographia Britan- 
nica (1747 i 169) who professed to have derived his informa- 
tion from family manuscripts, Anthony was a man of high 
character and very liberal to the poor. 

He died in his seventy- fourth year and was buried in the 
church of St. Bartholomew the Great, in the aisle that joins 
the aisle that joins the north side of the chancel, where a hand- 
some monument has been erected to his memory with a very 
remarkable inscription : > 


"Sacred to the memory of the worthy and learned Francis 
Anthony, Dr. of Physic. 

^^ There needs no verse to beautify thy praise. 

Or keep in ntemoty thy spotless name. 
Religion, virtue and thy skill did raise 

A three-fold pillar to thy lasting fame. 

Though poisonous envy ever fought to blame 
Or hide the fruits of thy intention , 

Yet shall they commejid that high desigtt 

Of purest gold to make a medicine. 
That feel thy help by that, thy rare invention ." 

His loving son, John Anthony, Doctor of Physic, left this 
remembrance of his sorrow. 

Note— Ex Judge Elliott Anthony of Chicago stood before this tablet 
and read this inscription little realizing that he was a descendant of Dr. 
Francis Anthony. 

The career of Dr. Anthony and his conflict with the College 
of Physicians illustrated the condition of the medical profes- 
sion in the 17th century. He was obnoxious to the college, 
not only because he practiced without a license, but because he 
kept the composition of his remedy a secret, and put it forward 
as a panacea for all diseases. 

Dr. Anthony was a man of some learning and defended his 
panacea in several pamphlets, in which he quotes several 
authors, chiefly chemists, as Raymond, Lully and Arnold, de 
Villa, Nora. He refers to Paracelsus with an apology, but 
disclaims any special debt to him, and atnong other authorities, 
to Conrad Gesner, who had written of Aurum Potabile in his 
writings. Anthony labors to show that metals are excellent 
medicines, gold, most of all ; that by his method it was dis- 
solved in potable form and furnished a universal medicine. 

His adversaries denied the superiority of metals to other 
m.edicines and the special efiicacy of gold, and that there was 
no such thing as a universal medicine, and that Anthony';;) 
method did not dissolve gold. 

Dr. Anthony desired to demonstrate his process to certain 
select witnesses and it appears that a trial actually took place 
at the College of Physicians in 1609 in the presence of Baron 
Thomas Knivet, master of the mint and other skilled persons, 
when an ounce of gold was given to Dr. Anthony, which by 
his method he failed to dissolve. The process is given in the 
Biographia Britannica ostensibly on the authority 01 a manu- 
script of Anthony's own. The efiicacy of the remedy, if any as 



a cordial, was possibly due to certain ethers which would form 
in the process of distillation, and also to the good canary wine 
in which it was ultimately dissolved. 

In Anthony's last works he relates the history of numerous 
cures which he performed on disting'uished persons. This 
brought upon him a violent attack from a Dr. Cotta, one of 
whose patients was spoken of, but in spite of all these attacks 
the potable gold became a very popular remedy. 

He was twice married ; by his first wife, Susan Howe, his 
sons John and Charles were born. They both became physi 
cians. John sold his father's "Aurum Potabile" and lived by 
it very handsomely. Charles married Martha Thornton and 
settled in the town of Bedford, where he obtained the charac- 
ter of a learned, honest and industrious man in his profession. 
We now lose trace of him. 

The secret recipe was long in Dr. Anthony's family and 
very beneficial to them. It lost its credit by being given in too 
large doses by unskilled hands. The age in which Dr. 
Anthony flourished was very favorable to his notions. They 
commenced a suit in the name of the Queen and obtained 
judgment against him, when he set up a wonderful defense of 
his medicine, and his death ended the controversy. 

"Dr. Francis Anthony, Book of Defense of Chemical Physic 
in true Potable Gold." 

After the dedication there follows a very short preface, 
wherein the author tells his readers that after inexpressible 
labor, watching and expense, he had, through the blessing of 
God, attained all he sought for in his inquiries, but now, when 
he had reaped the fruits of his labor, he complains that some 
envious, person had sown tares with his wheat, whence he was 
under the necessity of an apologetical discourse, wherein his 
intention is to prove that he is no impostor and that there was 
both truth and certainty in the science which had particularly 
engrossed his studies. This treatise is very short, but withal 
very methodical, and extremely fit to remove all prejudices 
which his enemies had industriously infused into the minds of 
the learned, for chiefly to them the Latin discourse related. 

It is divided into seven chapters : 

ist. Is there such a thing as "Potable Gold," etc. (It is 
worthy the reader's attention to peruse the defense set forth by 
Dr. Francis Anthony in the Biographia Britannica.) 

JOHN ANTHONY, born 1585- 1655. Physician, son of 
Dr. Francis Anthony. He was educated at Pembroke College, 
graduating an M. B. in 161 3 and M. D. in 1619. Was ad- 


Riitted licentiate of College of Physicians of London, 1625. 
He served in the civil war on the parliamentary side as surgeon 
to Colonel Sandys. He was the author of a devotional work, 
"The Comfort of the Soul," laid down by way of meditation 
in 1654. The same work in the same impression was after- 
wards issued with a new title page, "Lucus Redivinus" or "The 
Gospel Physician" by John Anthony, Doctor of Physic, Lon- 
don, 1656. In the British Museum ( sloane M. S. 489) is a 
small note book bound with the coat of arms of Charles I, en- 
titled Joannis Antonii Prapis Medica, containing notes in Latin 
on various diseases and their treatment. In it Paracelsus is 
quoted as authority for certain prescriptions. The notes, evi- 
dently for private use and not intended for publication, but 
clearly belong to John Anthony. ( Biog. Britannica. Monks

Biog. Vol. II.)

John Anthony, or Anthonie, as he wrote it, was born in Eng- 
land in 1607. He married Susanna Potter and was the found- 
er of the name of Anthony in New England. 

We have knowledge that he took the oath of allegiance and 
supremacy March 24, 1634, with intent to embark in the ship 
Mary and John, but was delayed a few days and took passage 
later on the Hercules, John Kiddy, Master. He had previously 
lived in the beautiful village of Hampstead, near London, 
England, and had been an innkeeper as well as having other 
occupations. (The original name was probably spelled with- 
out the "h," Antony, and is now so spelled by one branch in 

From the Colonial Records of Rhode Island we glean the 
following items concerning him : 

1 64 1. Mar. 16. Freeman. 

1642. Oct. He sold to Richard Tew, of Newport, for 
good causes, etc., three parcels of land east of the Newport 
Mill, within a tract called the great encloseure, amounting to 50 
acres — 40 acres given me by town grant, 10 as a servant, at 
my first coming; also two parcels of marsh. Witnesses, 
Susanna Anthony and Joseph Ladd. 

1644. Corporal. 

1644. Nov. 14. He had land granted at the Wadding 

1655. Freeman. 

1655. May 25. He was appointed by the court of com- 
missoners to keep a house of entertainment. A convenient 
sign was to be set out at the most perspicuous place to give

Tiiese two Anthony brothers ;//. the Wodell sisters; their 
father was William, son of Gersham Wodell, from England. 
William Wodell \\'as a follower of Gorton ( who was expelled 
from Massachusetts for heresy and went to R. I.), and he was 
one of the original proprietors of Warwick, R. I., in 1642. He 
was baptized as a Gortonite in 1643. and the Governor of 
Massachusetts, who claimed jurisdiction over Rhode Island, 
arrested him. and put him in prison at Watertown, Mass. 
After liberation he went to Portsmouth, R. I., and became a 
prominent Friend or Quaker. Three persons that belonged to 
this church were hung in Boston as "pestilential heretics." 
William held many offices of trust and died in 1692. The 
Wodells were a long-lived family ; several of them have lived to 
be over 100 years old, and those that have lived to be over 90 
are too numerous to mention. 


The Wodell's line was on one side Welsh-English and the 
other purely French ; these stem lines united about 1565, short- 
ly after the first Huguenot dispensation. 

This interesting family, noted for their remarkable longev- 
ity, has furnished progenitors for the Anthony family, as well 
as many others. The following are a few who lived to an ex- 
treme old age.

man; he opposed his father on the subject of politics, 
joined the standard of the Pretender, Prince Charles 
Edward, and was at the battle of Culloden. After that 
defeat he fled to the colonies in 1746 and settled in 
Rhode Island. 


Gilbert Stuart was now a young man of about twenty years 
and Dr. Moffit, a fellow-refug-ee, suggested the idea of cultivat- 
ing tobacco for the manufacture of snuff, one of the most 
"fashionable" articles of the time. They concluded to go into 
business together, and so the mill-seat was selected in that part 
of the colony of Rhode Island called Narragansett, and there 
they built the first snuff mill in New^ England, and manufac- 
tured that strange article of luxury. Stuart soon built a house 
onto the mill, and married a very handsome woman by the 
name of Elizabeth Anthony, the dau. of Albro and Susan 
Hefferman Anthony.

He was collector of Customs at Halifax, where they lived and 
raised a large family. Anne was the mother of Stuart New- 
ton, the artist. 

39. Gilbert Stuart, Jr. (39), ni. Charlotte Coates, dau. of Dr. 
Coates, of Berkshire, England, May 10, 1786; she was 
exceedingly pretty, but her greatest charm to Stuart 
was her singing. Her voice was a superb contralto, 
and, when speaking, it was remarkably attractive, which 
was a great source of pride to her as long as she lived. 

Children — 

Of the children we have a very brief history from the pen of 
Miss Anne Stuart, one of the daughters. "There were born 
12 children, 4 are still living in 1876. My second brother, 
Charles, was a very fine landscape painter; he died at the age 
of 26. My sister Jane, I think, inherits a great deal of her 
father's genius." 

GILBERT STUART, SR. removed early to Newport 
w^here his son had the advantages of a good education. He 
began to draw early, but none of his sketches have been pre- 
served. His first known picture is two Spanish dogs and two 
portraits, the latter painted when he was thirteen years old and 
are now in the Redwood Library, Newport. He received 
some instruction from a Scotch artist named Cosmo Alexander, 
who took him to Scotland with him, but this patron died soon 
afttr his arrival. Stuart, after struggling a while at the Uni- 



(39) Gilbert Stewart, Jr. 



versity of Glasgow, had to work his wa)'- home in a colher. He 
soon sailed again for England, 1778, and became a pupil and 
assistant of Benjamin West, with whom he painted for ten 
years, when he set up a studio of his own in London. One of 
his best pictures of the period is a full length portrait of W. 
Grant of Colgalton, skating in St. James Park, now at Moor 
Court, Strand, in possession of Lord Charles Pelham Clinton. 
Two fine half lengths by Stuart are in the National Gallery — 
his preceptor, Benjamin West, and the engraver, Wollett. 
Stuart married in London and remained there with the excep- 
tion of a short visit to Dublin, when he returned to America. 
He early painted his first head of Washington. This portrait 
exhibits the right side of the face and, although the least fami- 
liar, is undoubtedly the truest of the three portraits from his 
hand. The second was a full length for the Marquis of Lands- 
downe, and' the third a vignette head now belonging to the 
Athenaum in Boston. These last two show the left side of the 
face and although they are readily recognized as ''Stuart's 
Washington," are unsatisfactory as portraits and inferior 
works of art. There are sixty-one replicas of these three 
pictures and they have been engraved more than two hundred 
times. In the catalogue of Stuart's works are recorded seven 
hundred and fifty-four portraits. Stuart remained in Philadel- 
phia, where he painted many of the prominent men of the 
country. He commenced a portrait of John Quincy Adams 
which, at his death, was finished by Sully. He died in Boston, 
July 27, 1828. 

Stuart's pictures have been little injured by time, which is 
doubtless owing to his use of pure colors and his manner of 
employing them. His practice was to lay all the tints in their 
places separately and distinctively along side of each other be- 
fore any blending was used, and then they were united by the 
means of a large, soft brush and without corrupting their fresh- 
ness. It is this method that gives the firmness and solidity to 
his flesh work. A marked feature of Stuart's work is the total 
absence of all lines, his work being painted in by the brush 
from the beginning. It is this process that gives to his model- 
ing its strength and rotundity. Stuart was pre-eminent as a 
colorist, and his place, judged by the highest canons of art, is 
unquestionably among the few recognized masters of portrait- 

At the beginning of the Revolution, Gilbert Stuart, Sr., be- 
ing attached to the Royal course, went to Nova Scotia and his 
property was all confiscated. His family soon followed by 
leave of the General Assembly on petition of his wife, who set 


forth that her husband was possessed of a tract of land in 
^Newport in that province which they wished to Hve. She 
prayed to be allow^ed leave to embark in the Nova Scotia 
Packet, David Ross. Master, being willing to give ample se- 
curity that nothing but wearing apparel and household goods 
of the family and necessary provisions for the voyage, 
should be carried away. At the February session of the Gen- 
eral Assembly of this state preferred her petition for liberty 
to join her husband upon which the following vote was passed : 
Whereas, upon the petition of Elizabeth Stuart, wife of Gilbert 
Stuart, late of Newport in the colony of Rhode Island, setting 
forth that her said husband is possessed of a tract of land in the 
township of Newport under improvement and upon which he 
has some stock; that he finds it impossible to maintain his 
family in said town of Newport in this colony, did last summer 
remove to said farm, where he now is, and proposes to remain 
and that, exclusive of the impracticability of supporting herself 
and family in this colony, which strongly impels her to follow 
her said husband, she is desirous of joining him, which she is 
bound in duty to do if possible. Petition granted. 

Their only daughter, Annie, married Henry Newton, collec- 
tor of customs at Halifax, Nova Scotia. Mr. Stuart died at 
Halifax in 1793, aged 7s. — Sabines Loyalist of the Revolution. 
Vol. 2. 



Gilbert Stuart, with his handsome young bride (she wasi^ 
the daughter of Albro and Susan (Hefferman) Anthony), 
returned to Narragansett and built their house with the mill 
attached to it, at the head of Petaquanset Pond or Narrow 
River, about fifty rods above where it empties into the pond ; 
the place was called North Kingston. Here they lived in the 
most primitive and happy manner. They had three children : 
James, who died in infancy; Ann (afterward Mrs. Newton, 
mother of Stuart Newton, the artist), and Gilbert Stuart, the 
subject of this memoir. 

How well da I remember listening to my grandmother's sto- 
ries of those dear old times ; for instance, how they would both 
go to church on a pillion. On one occasion, my grandfather 
(who was the most absent-minded of men), while jogging 
along, lost in a reverie, dropped my grandmother on the road. 
He soon became aware of her absence, however, and turning 
suddenly rode back, exclaiming, "God's-my-life, are you 





hurt?" There she sat, enjoying- her anticipation of his sur- 
prise when he should discover her pHght. 

Their son, Gilbert Charles Stuart, artist, was born on the 3d 
of December, 1755. On the following year he was christened 
at St. Paul's Church, Narragansett. From the church records 
we copy the following : 

"April nth, 1756, being Palm Sunday, Dr. McSparrow 
read prayers, and baptized a child named Gilbert Stewart, son 
of Gilbert Stewart, the snufif-grinder — sureties, the Dr. and 
Benjamin Mumford and Mrs. Hannah Mumford, St. Paul's 
Church, Narragansett." 

The clergyman made a mistake in spelling his name ; the 
family were very particular to spell it thus — "S-t-u-a-r-t." 

The house in which Gilbert Stuart was born is still standing 
ir. North Kingston, a quaint, gable-roofed old house. 

Mrs. Stuart, my father's mother, coming into some little 
property about this time, removed to Newport, R. I., partly 
that Gilbert should have the advantage of a Latin school kept 
by the Rev. George Brissett, Episcopal minister, employed as 
assistant at Trinity Church (from 1767 until 1770). Here he 
remained for two years sketching his boy friends and trying to 
acquire some knowledge of music. From childhood he showed 
a talent for the arts, and was remarkable for his keen observa- 
tion. When he was about five years old, his mother and some 
friends were conversing before him and discussing some par- 
ticular person, when they observed him drawing on the earth. 
In a few minutes he called their attention to what he was do- 
ing ; imagine their astonishment when they saw a most striking 
likeness of the gentlemen who had been the theme of their con- 
versation. Once, while watching a criminal passing to his 
execution (a circumstance of such rare occurrence that it was 
a subject of curiosity to every one), he heard some persons 
expressing their surmises as to the individuality of the hang- 
man, who was enshrouded to his feet. They wondered who in 
Rhode Island had been found to perform the office. 

"Oh," said Stuart, 'T know who it was." 

"Pray, sir, who was it?" said my grandmother. 

"John S ," answered he, giving the name. 

"What put that into your head?" 

"I knew him by his sues" (shoes), — and he proved to be 

My grandmother, although she had only such an education 
as the colonies afforded at that time, cultivated her mind by 
reading, and was considered a very superior woman, and was 
anxious that her son should be well educated. He would often 


in after years laugh about her instructing- him in his Latin 
grammar, without knowing one word of it herself; and yet, he 
said, she had laid the foundation of his Latin, in which study 
he afterward became proficient. 

Young Stuart was, at this time, at the very head and front 
of mischief of every kind, but a great favorite with all his 
school-fellows, — a sort of a master-spirit, his companions wil- 
lingly yielding him the lead on every occasion. 

His early sketches were not preserved, as the first passing 
shower effaced what he had sketched with chalk and charcoal 
on fence, slab or tail-board. At fourteen he commenced paint- 
ing. Dr. Thomas R. Hunter, during a professional visit to 
the home of Stuart asked his mother who made all the draw- 
ings of chalk and charcoal on the side of the barn. She re- 
plied by pointing to her son. The doctor took great interest 
in the boy and invited him to his home, gave him brushes and 
colors and had him paint a picture of the two Spanish dogs 
lying on the floor under the table. He was the guest of the 
house while painting the picture. 

About this time a Mr. Alexander came to Newport, — a 
Scotch gentleman who visited this country, it was supposed, 
from political motives, but in reality for the benefit of his 
health. He was an artist of considerable talent, and painted a 
number of Scotch gentlemen during his stay in Newport. This 
brought him in contact with young Stuart, in whom he became 
very much interested. He instructed Stuart, and finally took 
him to Scotland between 1771 and 1772, but, unfortunately, 
died soon- after. He had, however, created for Stuart a strong 
interest with his friend Sir. George Chambers, who had only 
time to secure an interest for him in the University of Glas- 
gow, when he also died, leaving the young lad among strang- 
ers, with scarcely money enough to pay his way. However, 
he painted several portraits, which enabled him to remain long 
enough at the University to give him at least a classical taste. 
He did not remain here more than two years, as he had not 
the means to appear well among his companions. This was 
more than his pride could brook. He returned home, working 
his passage back, I have heard — though this I very much doubt. 
Here he soon found himself among his old friends, with as 
much employment as an artist as he could wish, painting some 
very fair portraits among the wealthy Jews, — one of these was 
a whole-length of the Jewish Rabbi, which is somewhere in 
New York now. He also painted all of the Lopez family. 
He made money enough, at any rate, to make him feel that he 
might venture to go to England. According-ly, he sailed June 



1 6th, 1775, and arrived in London in September, with the 
express purpose of studying with Benjamin West, the great 
painter of the day. 

Arriving at London, Stuart went into cheap lodgings, now 
and then painting a portrait at prices so low as scarcely to give 
him bread. He seemed to be under some terrible ban at this 
time, for he had brought letters to the Honorable Mr. Grant, 
a Scotch gentleman, and painted a group of the children and a 
full-length of this gentleman, which were not seen until after 
he had been with Mr. West for some time. They afterward 
helped to make his reputation. 

He lived in this way for two years before he became ac- 
quainted with Mr. West, although it was the sole purpose of 
his visit to England. All of this time he had there an old 
schoolfellow (and friend, as he thought), who was his con- 
stant companion, and was also a daily visitor of West's, who 
could' have introduced him at any time. Why did he not speak 
of Stuart, who he knew had all that shrinking which is the 
accompaniment of real genius in a young person? Why did 
he not, — particularly as the kind interest that West took in his 
own countrymen was well known? This friend makes it ap- 
pear that he sustained him and he even says that he spoke to 
some ladies to take care of him, as the best thing he could do. It 
would have been more to his credit if he had mentioned to Mr. 
West that a young artist, an American, had come all the way to 
England to study under him, and was too diffident to present 
himself. Stuart, however, in a moment of desperation, sum- 
moned his courage and called on West, without introduction. 
Mr. Wharton, of Philadelphia (who was in London at that 
time), happened to be at Mr. West's when Stuart called. He 
has often spoken of this fact with great satisfaction among his 
friends and relates the circumstances as follows : 

He was dining with several Americans at Mr. West's, when 
a servant told Mr. West that some one wished to see him. He 
made answer, 'T am engaged," but, after a pause, he added, 
"W'ho is he?'' the servant said, "I do not know, sir; but he 
says he is from America," whereupon Mr. Wharton said: 'T 
will go and see who it is." He went out, and saw a hand- 
some youth in a fashionable green coat. He talked with him 
some time and finding that he was the nephew of Joseph An- 
thony of Philadelphia, who happened to be a friend of Mr. 
Wharton, he answered for him at once, and returning to Mr. 
West, told him that he was satisfied he was of respectable con- 
nections, and Mr. West came out and received him most cor- 
dially. Stuart told him of his long desire to see him, and of 


his great wish to improve himself in the arts — to all of which 
West listened with kindness and attention. He then re- 
quested Stuart to bring to him something that he had painted, 
which Stuart did ; in a few days from that time he commenced 
his studies with West, and finally became domesticated in his 
family in the summer of 1777. Stuart was then twenty-two 
years of age. 

The pretended friend, previously mentioned, finding that 
Stuart had such good fortune, and wishing to appear gener- 
ous, called and told Mr. West that he was very much interested 
in a young artist by the name of Stuart. He was informed, 
however, that the young artist had already been introduced. I 
am sorry to say that Stuart could never quite forgive this un- 
accountable conduct in one who had known him from his boy- 
hood, and who also knew the struggle he was enduring. They 
often saw each other in this country afterward, but there was 
an estrangement. 

Stuart, previous to his acquaintance with Mr. West, had de- 
voted much of his time to music, and went into every place in 
London where it could be heard. This accomplishment now 
became the means of his support for the fact was, that although 
greatly benefited by his sojourn with that artist, it was not in a 
pecuniary way, for Stuart still found his pockets empty. 
Walking one day — this was about 1776 — through a place 
called Foster's Lane, he heard the tones of an organ proceed- 
ing from a neighboring church. The door being open he 
walked in, and found the vestry listening to candidates for the 
situation of organist. He asked permission to try his skill, 
which was acceded to, and he w^as accepted with a salary of 
thirty pounds a year. 

At this period he was attending the discourses of Sir Joshua 
Reynolds ; studying anatomy with the celebrated Dr. Cruik- 
shank; drawing during the evening in the life school, and 
painting with Mr. West, who was so fully employed that he 
could not complete the works he had undertaken as soon as 
required. The consequence w-as that my father's pencil was 
in constant requisition, and the employment gave him great 
facility in the execution of his work. There is no doubt that 
he acc|uired a great deal of information while with Mr. West, 
but little advantage in a financial point of view. There was a 
galaxy of men of distinguished genius in England at that 
period, — Johnson, Barry, West, Burke, Sir Joshua Reynolds, 
Romney, Kemble, Fuseli and Gainsborough. The rays from 
these great luminaries found their way into the mind and heart 
of young Stuart, fostering his genius and kindling his aspira- 
tion for fame. 

THE ANTHONY FAMILY ..: o^ r^r»-N- V^ 

The English school at this time was in harmony with his 
own idea of art — the pursuit of nature — an idea which is 
evident in his earliest efforts. France was then far in the 
background in this respect. Now we turn in that direction 
with admiration and humility. 

One of my father's favorite artists was Romney. It is 
curious to observe that his name is now seldom mentioned ; but 
it has been impressed on my memory from the fact that just 
previous to my father's last illness, he was making arrange- 
ments to send me to England to be under the care of his old 
friend, Sir William Beechey. He then very earnestly advised 
and urged that I should obtain heads painted by Romney, as 
being exceedingly beautiful and more true to nature than any 
others he had ever seen, not even excepting those of Sir Joshua, 
much as he admired the latter. 

My father used to relate the circumstance of his going with 
some choice colors to Sir Joshua, as a present from Mr. West. 
Reynolds took him into his painting-room to show him his 
picture of Mrs. Siddons, as the Tragic Muse. Sir Joshua, 
seeing him so delighted, invited him to come and see it when it 
was finished, which my father was only too happy to do. Go- 
ing into Reynold's room, he found him full of anxiety and 
busily giving the finishing touches; his hair (or his wig) very 
much disheveled, his stockings rather loose, and his general 
appearance disordered. The instant my father looked at the 
picture, he caught his breath with a feeling of disappointment. 
Sir Joshua perceived this, and asked him if he did not think he 
had improved it? Stuart answered, 'Tt could not have been 
improved," and asked, "Why did not you take another can- 
vas?" Sir Joshua replied, "That's true." My father immedi- 
ately realized what a very great liberty he had taken, and was 
exceedingly abashed ; but the good Sir Joshua bore the criti- 
cism very amiably, possibly thinking that the opinion of so 
young a man was not any great matter. 

Stuart was at this time a pale-looking man, about twenty- 
two years old; of a sad expression and with dark brown hair, 
which curled slightly about his neck. It was often said that he 
looked like Charles I. When Mr. West was painting for 
George III. a picture of Charles arrayed in the robes of the 
Order of the Garter, to be placed in Windsor Castle, he sent 
for Stuart to put the robes on him as a model. He was so 
struck with the resemblance that he called his students and 
other persons i;o see this "extraordinary likeness." 

Stuart was five feet ten, with a powerful frame and graceful 
manners, and was exceedingly well-bred ; but with an expres- 


sion so searching that it amounted to severity — a quahty which 
became more marked as he advanced in hfe. The writer never 
can forget accompanying Stuart once to see David's picture of 
Napoleon. The man who then had the care of the Boston 
Athenaeum — and who was particularly disagreeable to him 
and to all the artists for his impertinence' — came forward very 
officially to assist Stuart up the stairs, a service which he did 
not require. When Stuart arrived at the landing-place, he 
turned and gave this man such a withering look that it seemed 
almost to annihilate him. The artists, who had all collected to 
hear his opinion of the picture, had difficulty to restrain their 
laughter at this successful rebuff, and often recurred, years 
afterward, with renewed mirth to the officious fellow's dis- 
comfiture. On one occasion, a lady, who was sitting to him, 
said to my sister Anne, "Oh, your father has such a searching 
look that I am frightened to death; he looks as if he knew 
everything I had ever done in my life." 

In 1784, Stuart was in full employment. He made a por- 
trait of Sir Joshua Reynolds for Alderman Boydell, which was 
afterwards purchased by Lord Inchiquin for 250 guineas; a 
full length of Lord St. Vincent, also Lord Rodney, from which 
the bronze statue was made ( this nobleman was very much at- 
tached to Stuart, and evinced it in many ways) ; a portrait of 
John Kemble; a head of Mrs. Siddons for her brother-in-law. 
Mr. Twiss ; also the Duke of Northumberland and his children ; 
Admiral Barrington, and Miss Charlotte Clive, daughter of 
Lord Clive. The last was a beautiful picture of a very lovely 
woman ; she was named after the Queen, who had stood as 
sponsor in person for her. This circumstance, combined with 
her other attractions, marked her as a great belle. The girl 
died soon after her portrait was finished, much to the regret of 
all the fashionable world. Mr. West was then employed to 
make six copies of this picture, at 50 guineas each. Stuart 
painted also fine portraits of Alderman Boydell and Colonel 

While painting Woolett, the celebrated engraver, Stuart's 
dog — who had taken a great dislike to the eccentric-looking 
sitter — would bark so furiously that he would have to be put 
out of the room. When the picture was finished, it was placed 
on the easel. Dash walked quietly into the room, and the 
moment he saw it, it seemed as if he would tear it in pieces. 
Similar incidents occurred several times with Stuart's pictures. 
During the absence of Captain Gerry of the navy, whom my 
father had painted, some of the family going into his room 
where his picture was, found his dog with his two paws on "i 


chair, looking up at the portrait, with a most melancholy ex- 

Stuart seldom evinced any vanity about his own works, so 
that when he did, the occurrence is memorable. He often 
spoke with great pride of a sketch which he made of John 
Kemble, in the character of Macbeth, — when he comes in and 
finds the witches conjuring a charm over a cauldron, and ex- 
claims : 

"How now, you secret, black and midnight hags? 
What is't you do?" 

He left England without knowing what had become of this 

In 1782, Stuart left Mr. West, and took a house in Berners 
street, at one hundred and fifty pounds a year. 

He was, about this time, introduced to Miss Charlotte 
Coates, whom he afterward married. She was a daughter of 
Dr. Coates of Berkshire, England. Her brother and Stuart 
had met at the anatomical lectures of Dr. Cruikshank. They 
soon became intimate friends; and, although the Doctor was 
very much attached to him, and admired his genius, he was 
perfectly aware of his reckless habits, and with the rest of her 
family opposed the match violently, but at length consented; 
and they were married May 10, 1786, by the Rev. Mr. Sprin- 
gate. She was exceedingly pretty, but her greatest charm <to 
Stuart was her singing. Her voice was a superb contralto, 
and when speaking, it was remarkably attractive. The cele- 
brated Fuseli was delighted with her singing, and would make 
her repeat her songs, which was a great source of pride to her 
as long as she lived, as he was remarkable for his fastidious 
and refined taste. 

Stuart at this time lived in very good style, and was sought 
by the most eminent persons of the day. He was the delight 
of every place at which he made his appearance. He was then 
remarkable for the extreme elegance of his dress. His musical 
parties were composed of the best musicians in London; and 
at these concerts he took a prominent part, as he himself played 
well on several different instruments. 

The manner in which he lived should not be called extrava- 
gant, as his employment warranted the outlay; his distinction 
as an artist entitled him to it ; the class of persons he painted 
for required it. His want of knowledge of business matters 
was his great difficulty. He could not comprehend the positivi 
necessity of counting his pennies. He seldom took a receipt. 
If he did happen to obtain one, it was generally cast away as 
worthless. It is not surprising that he soon became very much 
embarrassed in his circumstances. 


About this period he was invited to go to Ireland, to paint a 
portrait of the Duke of Rutland, then Lord Lieutenant. As 
he approached Dublin, he met the funeral cortege of the Duke. 
This was a severe disappointment, but the moment it was 
known that he had arrived, he was called upon by his friends 
and the public, and was soon fully employed by the nobility. 
Among others were the lamented Lord Fitzgerald, Lord Farn- 
ham, the distinguished Dean Beatson, Lady Dick, Lord and 
Lady Ormond, the Bishop of Ossory and many others. 

He was delighted with the society he met in Ireland ; the 
elegant manners, the wit, and the hospitality of the upper class 
of the Irish suited his genial temperament. He was so much 
beloved by them that they tried to claim him as a fellow-coun- 
tryman. When Mr. Allston was there, he heard them express 
their grief that Stuart should have ever left Ireland ; they 
would say : "Oh, nobody ever painted such a head as our 
Irish Stuart could." I am sorry to say that Stuart entered too 
much into their convivialities. The fact is, it was his mis- 
fortune — I might say his curse — to have been such an acqui- 
sition to, and so sought after by, society; particularly as he felt 
he must make some acknowledgment for such incessant atten- 
tions and cordial hospitality. The consequence was that he 
gave dinner parties, as was the fashion of the day. He lived 
at a place called Stillorgan Park, not far from Dublin. The 
gentlemen of the surrounding neighborhood constituted his 
principal society. By all accounts, a more genial and elegant 
set of men could not be found. 

My mother used to relate numerous anecdotes of these gay 
reunions. After one of these dinner parties, composed of some 
of the wits of the day, among them the Rev. Mr. Best, Dean 
Beatson, and John Kemble, a violent dispute arose as to the 
possession- of the truest eye; it was finally proposed that there 
should be a mark placed in the garden, that the question might 
be decided by pistols. Accordingly, they went out, and Stuart, 
soon seeing the exact state of things walked deliberately in 
front of the target, — when they all exclaimed : "Stuart, Stuart, 
what are you about? By heavens, you will be shot." "Oh, 
no," said he, in a very quiet manner; "from all appearance, 
this is the safest place." 

I was always very fond of hearing these old stories; but it 
gave my mother pain to remember anything associated with 
reckless extravagance, or. what she called his folly. 

Notwithstanding all his employment and pleasant compan- 
ionship, Stuart could not be prevailed upon to remain in Ire- 
land. He was completely absorbed with the idea of returning 


to America. To execute a portrait of Washington seems to 
have been his grand purpose; for instead of returning to Eng- 
land as he at first intended, having made a positive engagement 
to do so, he sailed for America, and landed in New York in 
1792. He was immediately called upon by many persons, all 
so anxious to sit to him that he took a house in Stone street, 
which at that time was one of the most respectable streets in 
the city. Here he painted a great many distinguished persons, 
and his time was fully employed. Stuart must have made, at 
this time, his fine portrait of General Gates, of revolutionary 
memory, which, of itself, would have been sufficient to estab- 
lish his fame. 

About this time he received a letter from his brother-in-law, 
Mr. Henry Newton, Collector at Halifax, Nova Scotia, re- 
questing him to come there to paint the Duke of Kent, who of- 
fered to send a ship of war for him; but most unfortunately 
he declined, as his fixed determination was to paint Washing- 
ton at any sacrifice. He had also entered into a number of 
engagements which he could not abandon. He always looked 
upon his declining this offer as the most signal mistake of his 
whole life. 

In 1794, wdiile Congress was in session at Philadelphia, Stu- 
art accomplished his purpose of painting Washington. Here 
he painted many other fine portraits, among them a most lovely 
head of Mrs. Greanleaf. I was told that Thackeray was very 
much delighted with this picture, also with the portraits of Mr, 
and Mrs. Davis, which he saw at Mr. Bancroft's ; in passing 
through the library to the dining-room, he stopped before them 
in admiration. On his return to England, Thackeray wrote 
of Stuart as quite equal to Titian in coloring. His portrait of 
Bishop White, I believe, is considered a fine one, as is a head 
of Horace Binney, Esq., and a portrait of Mr. Hare,, which he 
commenced in London, and finished in Philadelphia. On its 
completion, Mr. Hare made the requisite payment to m.y father, 
who at once said : 

"Excuse me, this picture has been paid." 

"Excuse me for contradicting, Mr. Stuart, but it has not, I 
assure you," replied Mr. Hare. 

My father could not remember the circumstances. Mr. Hare 
persisted in paying the amount due, and handed him six hun- 
dred dollars, which was a high price at that period. The pic- 
ture was a full-length of Mr. Hare, with his little daughter 
introduced. This anecdote was related to me by the daughter 
herself, when quite advanced in life. I write it as an instance 
of my father's utter inability to transact business. 


Note — Stuart visited at Scion House ( one of the country 
seats of the Duke of Northumberland), where he painted the 
Duke and two of his children. He inquired of the Duke if he 
had any particular fancy about the composition of this picture ; 
after some little conversation, he said : "I think my girl had 
found out that she is very pretty, and the boy has discovered 
it; and, like a true boy, is fond of teasing her about it." Stuart 
took the hint, and painted a picture of the girl looking at her- 
self in the water ; the boy behind her, throwing a stone in it to 
spoil the mirror. 

Stuart was very young and inexperienced at that time, and 
this picture must have been very inferior as a work of art, but 
1 dare say it had some merit. Whether it is in existence or not, 
I cannot pretend to say. He loved the memory of the Duke, 
as the latter had shown a very great interest in him, when he 
was young, struggling with his adverse fortune. This Duke 
was the Lord Percy who was in Newport at the time of the 

GILBERT Stuart's last visit to his old home. 

His last visit to Newport, he crossed the ferries and procured 
Mr. Amos Gardiner to take him to the house of his nativity 
and desired liberty of Mr. Hammond to look it over. In going 
into the northeast bedroom, he said, "In this room my mother 
always told me that I was born." He died soon after his re- 
turn to Boston. 


The grave of Stuart, the famous painter, whose portrait of 
Washington is one the most familiar to the world, has been 
found. The figures "No. 6i" alone, incised on the upper sur- 
face of the iron fence curbstone which separates the old central 
burying ground from the Boylston street walk in Boston Com- 
mon, are the only marks above his resting place, which had 
been lost sight of for more than half a century. Stuart died, 
neglected and poor, at the age of ^2. (Descrpt. Hartford 
Weekly, Feb. 17, 1896).

553^. Israel Church Anthony (48), b. June 12, 1767, was 
the son of John (31), and Sarah Church Anthony. 
Moved to South Carolina. This is all the history we 
have of Israel Church Anthony, or Church Anthony, as 
they called him, except this thrilling adventure. 
Israel Church Anthony was a sea captain (or sea merchant 
a- they were known in those days), sailing from Newport, 
R. I. He traded largely in the West Indies. In about the 
year 1800 he was overhauled by West Indian pirates, who ' 
looted and sank his ship, murdering- the entire crew, except 
Captain Anthony, his first mate and a negro steward. These 
three were taken to the pirate island for the purpose of tor- 
tia'e that they might be made to disclose valuable information 
as to other shipping interest of value to them. Failing in this, 
they decided to murder them. So after stripping them of all 
their clothing and tying their hands behind their backs, they 
were placed in a row to be shot. The negro steward fell at 
the first fire. Captain Anthony and the first mate broke looss 
and ran for their lives, making good their escape. Running 
in opposite direction they were lost to each for several weeks, 
when the captain found the mate dying of starvation, and so 
great had been the pangs of hunger that he had eaten the flesh 
from one arm. He begged the captain to leave him, with the 
promise that he would not make food of his remains after 
death, a promise that he faithfully kept. 

He soon discovered the pirates' store cave, and by close 
watch found they were preparing to leave the island. After 


they had gone he visited the cave and found sea biscuit to sub- 
sist on and sail cloth to make him a garment. 

He decided to set sail on the ocean with his life in his hand, 
prefering- death on the billows of the deep. He built a raft 
and put on a sail with provisions and water. His hair and 
beard had grown, covering his head and face. He made him 
an outer garment of the long strips of moss that hung from 
the limbs of the trees. 

He pushed out his raft from the shore and after drifting 
about for several days, he sighted a Spanish vessel. The sailors 
regarded him as a supernatural being. The hair and beard and 
moss obliterated every appearance of humanity. They heard 
a feeble human voice, but this only confirmecl their supersti- 
tious notion that he was an evil spirit and they refused to take 
him on board, and sailed away. 

He next sighted an English vessel and they took him 
aboard. The captain ordered them to take him down into the 
hold of the vessel, give him a stimulant and clean him up and 
dress him in a sailor's suit. When he came up, the captain 
was astonished to meet his old friend, Captain Church An- 

He landed in England and followed the sea for many years 
after. He then retired to Newport, Mass., with ample means. 

He has handed down to the Anthony family the story of 
one of the most blood curdling adventures that ever came to 
any of the family, and the only one that is recorded in this 
book where an Anthony was ever known to run, even to save 
his own life.

Anthony, h. Nov. 7, 1672, probably (/. in 1703, as that 
year it is stated that Abraham "took administration of 
estate of his son John Anthony, mariner, late master 
of her Majesty's ship, Gosport." Abraham's will men- 
tions "grandson John, son of John." 

191. William Anthony (180), son of Abraham and Alice 

Wodell Anthony, in. Mary Coggeshall, Mar. 14, 1695. 
Mary was h. Sept. 18, 1675, d. after 1739. William d. 
Dec. 28, 1744. She was daughter of John and Eliza- 
beth (Timber Lake) Coggeshall of Portsmouth, R. I. 
John Coggeshall was son of Major John, son of John, 
who was first president of R. I. William lived in Ports- 
mouth, R. I., and Swanzey, Mass., and had fourteen 

The Coggeshalls were from an ancient family in the county 
of Essex, wdio possessed ten manors and estates in Essex and 
Suffolk. Their coat of arms is one of the oldest in English 
heraldry. Back in the nth and 12th centuries, the Coggeshall 
name was written with the preposition "de Coggeshall." 

John Coggeshall the first, settled earliest in Roxbury, Mass., 
arrived in Boston on the ship Lyon, Sept. 16, 1632. Removed 
to and settled eventually in Newport, R. I. and died there. 

PiNEViLLE, Mo., May 26, 1904. 

Dear Mr. Anthony.' Here are some bits of meat picked 
off my picked over record bones. If you can make a stew of 
them you are welcome. 

First comes a correction, in your own sheet you give an 
item this way : 

"William Anthony, son of Abraham and Alice Wodell, h. 
Oct. 31, 1675, in. Mary Coggeshall, daughter of John, the 
first president of the colony of Rhode Island. Married Mar. 
16, 1674. 14 children." 

Probably her father was John, but she was the grand- 
daughter of John, the first president, who died in office, 1647. 

John Coggeshall (Coxall, Coxsall, etc.), was born in the 
County of Essex, Eng-., in 1599, or some say, 1581. Came to 
Colonies in 1632, on ship Lion, Sept. 16, with wife, Mary and 
three children, John (your John, I judge), Joshua and Ann. 
Was a Mrs. Hutchinson sympathizer. Massachusetts became 
too warm for him and he, with the Hutchinsonites went to 



Rhode Island in 1638, bought the Island of Aqnineck, and 
helped settle Pocasset ( Portsmouth), later the center of Quak- 
erism. Mary Dyer, Daniel Gould, and the president's own 
son, Joshua Coggeshall, introduced the Quaker faith in Rhode 
Island. Governor Cog-geshall died in office Nov. 23, 1647. 
John, Jr., your John, was also governor. He died in New- 
port, Oct. I, 1708. A daughter of John Coggeshall, the first, 
born after he came to America, was Wait (doubtless Wait- 
still). She married Daniel Gould, one of the three founders 
of Quakers. Their marriage w'as so ideally happy that at 
death the grave Quaker records state that they lived together 
sixty-five years in much love. Daniel Gould was the first of 
all to acknowledge himself a Quaker; 

Daniel Gould "ye 22nd of ye 9th month," was flogged in 
Boston, with five of his converts, two men and three women. 
The converts received ten to fifteen stripes each. He received 
thirty lashes. He preached until he was ninety-five. 

Hung in Boston for their faith, of the Portsmouth friends. 
William Robinson, Alarmaduke Stephenson, \Mlliam Sedro or 
Sedrea, Mary Dyer. 

The Quaker records are brief and without a trace of malice 
or attempt to make capital. "Hung in Boston,' is one entry, 
''executed.'" another and a third (William Sedrea, I think), 
"suffered martyrdom." (I misplaced that note). As the 
Massachusetts authorities thought a woman preacher was a 
monstrous sight, they hung her higher than the rest. 

Mary Dyer was born in 1624. She w'as the wife of William 
Dyer, or Dyre, as it was also written. He was one of the 
Hutchinson sympathizers who followed Mrs. Anne Hutchin- 
son when she was banished in 1638. Her followers bought th^ 
island of Aquidneck and settled Pocassett, now Portsmouth, 
that same year. 1638. He was a leading man, and for many 
years was secretary of the colony. He was not a public friend, 
but unquestionably sympathized with his wife's views. His 
prominence could not save her, nor her little children. She 
was but thirty-six when hung in Boston, 1660. 

My genealogy is in publisher's hands. Will be out in Sep- 
tember or October, I expect. It is one of the largest Nvhite 
elephants of its kind. 

You asked once of children of William and Patience Free- 
born Anthony, and gave from William, h. 1702, to Susannah, 

h. 1 71 2. There was a Joseph h. to same parents, Sept. ,

331. ELLIOTT ANTHONY was by birth a Quaker and 
was descended from a long line of ancestors of that faith. 
He was born in Onondago County, New York, June 10, 1827. 
In 1845, Elliott went to Courtland Academy, where he fitted 
for college and in the fall of 1847, entered Hamilton College. 
There he spent three years, graduating in 1850 with high 
honors. He immediately commenced the study of law with 
Prof. T. W. Dwight, now the head of the Columbia College 
Law school in the city of New York. In May, 1851, he was 
admitted to the Bar of New York. In June, he came West 
and spent one year at Sterling, 111. He returned East in July 
following and on the 14th of that month was united in mar- 
riage to Mary Dwight, a granddaughter of President Dwight 
of Yale College, and sister of T. W. Dwight above men- 
tioned. In November he took- up his abode in Chicago with 
the outfit of a brave and noble wife, a copy of Blackstone's 
Commentaries, and eight dollars in his pocket. With the aid 
of his wife, in two years he prepared and published a digest of 
the Illinois Reports. In four years after, he was elected City 
Attorney and then Corporation Counsel. He was one of the 
principal promoters of the Law Institute, drawing up the 
charter and taking it to Springfield and having it passed ; and 
largely to his efforts the Bar of the city of Chicago is indebted 
for the magnificent library to which hundreds now resort. 

In 1858 or 1859, he was appointed General Solicitor of the 
Galena and Chicago Union Railroad, which position he held 
until that corporation became consolidated with the Chicago & 
North Western Railway Co. When that took place, Mr. 
Anthony was employed by the non-consenting stockholders 
and bondholders, and engaged in a litigation to break up the 
consolidation. He prepared a work, embodying the law upon 
the subject of consolidation of railroad companies, which 
v;as a masterly presentation of the subject. The case was 
argued before Judge Davis of the United States Supreme 
Court and Judge Treat of Springfield, and resulted in favor of 
Mr. Anthony's clients. 

Mr. Anthony early took part in the formation of the 
Republican party and for more than a quarter of a century 
has been a leader of that organization. He has twice been 



(370) Catherine Anthony Galt 


elected to constitutional conventions, called by the people to 
revise the Constitution of the state — the tirst time in 1862 and 
the last in 1869-70. In the last he took a conspicuous part, 
and was chairman of the executive committee that framed the 
article in our present constitution, relating to the executive 
department. In 1880, he engaged in the great contest in this 
state over the election of delegates to the National Republican 
Convention, was selected a delegate to that convention and 
aided in the nomination of General Garfield for President. 

In November of that year he was elected Judge of the 
Superior Court of this city by a large majority. From the 
very first day that he took his seat upon the bench until the 
present time, he has devoted himself to the duties of the office 
with the most untiring zeal and constant study. Judge An- 
thony has been identified with many of the public improve- 
ments of Chicago, such as the establishment of graded streets, 
water works, public parks, public library and cemeteries. 
In 1876, he was called again to the position of corporation 
counsel under Mayor Heath, and took a conspicuous part at 
that time in the great reform movement in connection with 
the late lamented Thomas Hoyne. At the time of the great 
fire he had, in addition to a large library, a choice miscellan- 
eous library of over three thousand volumes, about one-half 
of which he saved by burying them in his garden, although 
most of his illustrated books and encyclopedias were burned. 

Judge Anthony has' been twice married — his first wife dying 
in the year 1862, and his second wife, who was a sister of 
the first, dying in May, 1870. By his first wife he had four 
children — a daughter of rare accomplishments, who died while 
on a visit to Europe when grown to womanhood, and thre^ 
sons, one a practicing- law^yer in Chicago, one a student of 
medicine at the Berlin University, Germany, and the youngest 
a member of the class of 18S5 in Amherst College. 

Judge Anthony belongs to the second generation of pioneers 
in Chicago, whose progress has been aided so much by the 
energy, enlightenment and wisdom of her settlers.

Caleb Cushing, the father-in-law of Alfred Anthony (444), 
was one of the founders of the Providence colony at Provi- 
dence, Bureau County, 111. He and two others came West in 
1836 and travelled over the country within a radius of 200 
miles from Chicago in order to find a desirable location, and 
decided to buy at Providence. The next year, May 1837, 


about 30 families with their household goods and provisions 
to last one year, moved West. They came by canal boat 
across Pennsylvania to the Ohio river, down the Ohio to its 
mouth, up the Mississippi to the Illinois river and landed at 
Hennepin, taking their goods across the country to Provi- 
dence with ox teams. A large building had been put up called 
the "Colony House" and all went there and remained until 
the land was divided, and separate houses could be built. 
Each head of the family bought what land he wanted and 
each received a deed of one lot in the village laid out. Caleb 
Cushing kept the company store for several years and supplied 
the people for miles around, going to Chicago for supplies, be- 
side what he brought with him. He spent one thousand 
dollars bringing his family and stock of goods, which was a 
large sum of money for the times. His daughter, Harriet 
Gage Cushing, now Mrs. H. A. Weld, of Buda, was the first 
child born in the colony. 

An amazing incident, but very pathetic to my grandmother, 
occurred after the long journey of six weeks. When they 
started from Hennepin, the wagons were loaded and started 
up the blufif and when nearly to the top, the barrels that 
grandmother packed her fine china dishes in became loosened 
and rolled back down the hill, breaking everything except one 
cup and saucer in one barrel and two plates in the other. 
These were all that was left of two full sets of china. You 
can imagine the grief this caused. — Josephine Anthony Reyn- 
olds, Family Historian.

influence and usefulness, and who was never more active or 
prominent in the community where he resides than at the 
present time. 

The subject of this sketch was born in Somerset, Alass., 
April 26, 1847. He is a lineal descendant of John Anthony, 
v>ho came to this country from Hampstead, near London, in 
the year 1634, settling in Portsmouth, R. I., but some of his 
family took up their residence in Swansea, Mass., where their 
descendants have continued to reside generation after genera- 
tion. He descended on his mother's side from Samuel and 
Sarah Lee, who came from England in the seventeenth cen- 
tury and settled in Swansea at the head of a river, since known 
as Lee's River. They were i^eople of excellent character, and 
their descendants, many of whom have continued to reside in 
Swansea and the vicinity, have shown the qualities of a sub 
stantial and influential citizenship. 

The subject of our sketch passed the years of an une\entful 
childhood under the favoring influences of a quiet home and 
amidst surroundings w^hich were of much the same nature as 
those of the ordinary rural neighborhood home in New Eng- 
land. He profited by a great deal of outdoor exercise and 
plenty of good hard w^ork, his education being limited to the 
little red school house of his native town. He had a worthy 
ambition for a business career for which his native town of- 
fered no advantages, so he left the parental roof at the age of 
sixteen years, disdaining no honest toil. He taught school, 
canvassed for books, worked on the farm ; his leisure moments 
were occupied preparing to fill more important positions, which 
ere long he was called upon to fill. In the meantime he tf)ok a

and is officially connected with a number of business corpora- 
tions and associations. He is vice-president of the Iron Belt 
Building and Loan Association. Roanoke, Virginia, and a 
member of the city council of Providence.

One hundred years after the Declaration of Independence 
an American whaling captain, George S. Anthony, commem- 
orated the eyent by enforcing another declaration of inde- 
pendence wdiich set free the Irish political prisoners, who 
were sentenced to life ser\-itude in the English prison in Aus- 

The story of the rescue of these prisoners in 1876 is a bra\'e 
incident of history which has hitherto been briefly told. 

When Captain Anthony, commanding the bark Catalpa. 
landed the men for whose relief the expedition was planned, at 


New York, public interest in the romantic voyage was very 
intense. The boldness of the raid upon the English colony 
and the remarkable features of the conspiracy, excited univer- 
sal curiosity concerning the details of the affair. 

On an April morning in 1875, the whale ship, Catalpa, lay 
at anchor in the harbor at New Bedford, ready for sea. Al- 
though the whaling industry was waning on the ebb tide, there 
were yet over a hundred whale ships sailing out of the port 
of New Bedford and the departure of Captain Anthony witli 
the ship, Catalpa, called for no unusual notice. 

It was a pretty spectacle to be sure. Captain Anthony with 
his papers under his arm, strong and athletic in figure, witli 
ruddy cheeks and life and fire in his bright eyes, goes abi)ard 

(983) George S. Anthony 

with his friends, who are to accompany him down the bay. 
Late in the afternoon the captain says good-bye to his friends. 
The wind is blowing briskly and the vessel sails out of the 
harbor under fore and main topsails, main and topgallant sails, 
spanker, gafttop sail and stay sail and flying jib. The pre- 
tense that Captain Anthony was going on a whaling voyage 
predominated. While the actual fact was that he had taken 
his life in his hand, kissed his young wife and baby daughter 
good-bye, all that was near and dear to him on this earth, and 
set sail into the very jaws of death to rescue six Fenian Irish 
prisoners that were incarcerated in an English prison to life 
servitude in Australia, for love of countrv. It was one of th^ 


most boldly conceived plans against the English government 
that was ever perpetrated and the only important Fenian con- 
spiracv that was ever entirely successful. 

The New Bedford whaleman has ever been a typ.e of enter- 
prise and daring, but the idea of finding a man to challenge 
the British navy with a whale ship and snatch a half dozen men 
from the jaws of the British lion was a supreme test of pluck. 

When it was decided to fit out a whale ship for this expedi- 
tion. Captain Hathaway, of the New Bedford night police 
force, was consulted as to the man best fitted to carry out the 
plot. "The commander you need to carry the expedition to 
success is Captain George S. Anthony." 

John T. Richardson, the father-in-law of Captain Anthony, 
agreed to arrange an interview for the Clan-na-gael committee 
with Anthony. Captain was a New Bedford man. Read his- 
tory Captain Geo. S. Anthony in all libraries.

All the history we have of William Anthony, Jr., is that 
he was born in 1709, in. Alice Eddy of Swansey, but lived and 
died at Dartmouth, Mass. He had three sons and one daugh- 
ter. His youngest son, David, and family came to East 
Hoosic (now called Adams, Mass.) in Revoluntionary times, 
and settled at Cheshire harbor under the base of Greylock 
mountain, the highest peak of the range. Green Mountains, 
in Massachusetts. In the year 1775, William Anthony came 
from the ocean washed shores of Dartmouth to the fertile val- 
leys and rock ribbed mountains of Hoosic, covered with prime- 
val forest trees, to visit his son David and family, and he 
became so enthused with the new country and its advantages, 
that he wrote a poetical description of the town, containing 
twenty-one verses. The copy was lost but was rewritten from 
the memory of his grandson. Elihu Anthony, in his extreme 
old age, when he could only recall a few lines at a time. We 
are indebted to Abby Haviland, granddaughter of Elihu, now 
Mrs. Calvin Mason of Glens Falls, N. Y., for noting down the 
following verses : 

Between two lofty mountains high, A road is laid on either side; 

Where the windy vapors fly, The western road the post doth ride, 

y\nd clouds do break as they pass by, And woeful tiding he doth bring 

There doth the land of Hoosick ly. Of civil wars against the king. 

Two armies ready to fight, 

■a ^ iU i • i-j And each contending for the right. 

Between those mounts a river glides, ® ^ 

With level land on either side, ^., Mae-i'^trate declares asrain 

And this they call their intervale; ine Magistrate aeciareb again 

-ri I -I \ ., . f I He bareth not his sword in vain. 

The soil is deep, not apt to fail. ^y,^^„ ^^^ glittering sword he draws 

He cries, '"go maintain your Master's 
This river runs through lower ground, cause." 

Extends to Hoosick's northern bound, 

Then westerly it steers its course, But on this subject I'll not dwell. 

And other rivers unite its force. It's too long a story here to tell. 

]\Ieets North river above Albany, Now, then, the present p"an persue. 

Then runs South into the sea. Take vip again the thread anew. 



JJetween those mounts, that distant lay, Where the water doeth overflow 
There dwells the ravenous beast of prey: It makes the grass and lillies grow. 
In caves and dens by day thev sleep. One thing bad I confess, indeed, 

r.y night destroy their lambs and sheep. There hath got m a yellow weed. 

in those frightful deserts, and there lUit their land is seeded over 

Doeth dwell the catamount and bear. With herds, grass and white clover. 
Likewise the fine delightful deer. Their timber is straight and very tal , 

Which oft the hunter's heart doeth cheer, And some there be that s large withal. 

When they go out and have good luck. Their maple trees in spring they tap, 
Come lugging home a good fat buck. And in great plenty draw the sap. 

In all the land among bush or brake And when the sap is thus conveyed, 

There dwells no large nor harmful snake. The hardened juice, the sugar made. 

Not plagued by hawks, nor scart by owls, They girdle trees and harrow grain, 
But cunning foxes catch their fowls, And twenty fold returns again. 

Their houses, plain, not very high. If rustling winds doth blow a breeze, 

And little rivers running by. It rattles down the girdle trees. 

Some ran so near, hard by their doors, If cattle they be standing under. 
They could be brought upon their floors. It kills them dead almost like thunder; 
P.eneath those mountains springs do rise, Some are killed as dead as stones. 
And little rivers, circling wise, And some escape with broken bones. 

Run trickling down the hills, By what I hear and understand 

Some large enough to carry mills: Mast Hoosiek is a fruitful land, 

r.y trenching they are carried around I'.y that account we may suppose 

And overflow the' lower ground. It buds and blossoms like tlie rose. 

There is rich valleys and fruitful hills: In winter it's covered with snow, 

Living springs from these distids. In spring doeth overflow. 

Which may be carried with much ease In summer flourish and grow, 

All round' about just where they please. In fall large crops bestow. 

Now I desire some able hand. 
That's acquainted with Hoosiek land, 
To write me back a letter. 
Draw a plan and describe it better. 

I2]6. David Anthony (951). son of \\'illiam and Alice Eddy 
Anthony, was born at Dartmouth. Mass.. May 6, 1747. 
He married Judith Hicks, a niece of EHas Hicks, the 
. noted Ouakei- i)reacher. "^^^^^^ qj^^^^^^-^^-tQu/^^^tJU^ ^* 

He removed to Adams. Mass., at the l^reaking out of the ;V^i-uA-^ ■ 
Revolution, locating- on the road directly west of the Cheshire 
Harbor, at the time of the Battle of Bennington, twenty miles 
awav. when the Green Mountain boys turned out with such 
weapons as they could procure and hastened to the scene o f ac- 
tion. Tudith Anthony collected her pewter ware and other 
valuables, placed them in her brass kettle and buried them in 
the cellar of their log house, as was done by all the neighboring 
women, each telling the other of the burying place in case any 
survived they could have the benefit of their only treasures. 
But the Green Mountain boys were victorious and when the 
post boy came running his horse along the west road, shouting 
at every house, "AX'e've beat 'em!" "We've beat 'em!" peace 
was again restored. They remained in their present location 
until the division of the Quakers, when he went to live with 
his orthodox son. Elihu Anthony, Greenfield, Saratoga County. 
X. v.. where he died at the age of 84 years. His wife died in

Adams, Mass., in 1818. There is only one descendant livino- 
today that ever saw David Anthony.' His grandson, Hun> 
phrey Anthony, Jr., now Hving in Adams, Alass., relates that 
when a boy he ran away from home to a neighbor's house and 
grandfather David got after him: stepping behind an open 
door, he gave grandpa the go-by. But the supposition is that 
grandpap used his cane to a good advantage, as Humphrey is 
nearly four score years old and has never been known to run 
away from home since.

Was one of the foremost ministers in the Friend's society 
and he had few, if any, superiors in the New York yearly 
meeting. He was one of the four who organized the first 
Total Abstinence Temperance Society in the United States. 
His home was noted for its hospitality, and ministers and 
other members of the monthly, quarterly and yearly meetings 
\\-ere his frequent visitors. This gave the family advantages 
enjoyed by few others. He was a good farmer and mechanic 
and manufactured a large amount of axes, scythes, hoes, and 
sleigh-shoes, which found ready market all over the country. 

At that time the daughters, as well as the sons, were taught 
to make themselves useful and no girl was thought to be 
worthy of a husband until she had a pillow case full of stock- 
ings and mittens of her own knitting and a chest full of sheets. 
pillow-cases, and counterpanes of her own weaving — the ma- 
terial was either wool or flax or a mixture of the two called 



(1226) Elihu Anthony 



linsey-woolsey — the girls spun the flax direct, the wool from 
rolls carded at the mills. Cotton clothes were very costly and 
seldom seen. 

Elihu Anthony was an independent, conscientious preacher, 
often walking long distances to fulfill his life-long mission. 
He had conscientious scruples about having his picture taken 
and never would consent until he received a letter signed by 
twenty-two of his progeny attending one district school in 
California. The photograph of Elihu Anthony is the first one 
in the album, not only in the Anthony family, but of 
Quaker's and Quaker loving people. He died in 1863, aged 
95 years. His wife died Mar. 4, 1848.

The name of Anthony is historic in connection with the 
work of Good Temi)lary in Calif(Mmia. The founder of the 
order on this coast is Richard W^illiams, wh() organized Pacific 
Lodge No. I, at Santa Cruz. Feb. 22, 1855. He was the 
brother of Mrs. Caroline Anthony, mother of F. A. Anthony 
of Livermore, who, together with his wife, are recognized as 
the most active workers within the order. Upon the Charter 
Plate of the "Old Pacific" are the names of William Anthony, 
Caroline Anthony, Elihu Anthony, and vSarah Anthony. The 
"Rescue" of Nov., 1887, chronicled the decease of Richard 
Williams whicli occurred Oct. 15, 1887, at Santa Cruz. Mrs,

neers of the order upon this coast. William Anthony, like his 
good wife who so recently preceded him, passed away at the 
home of their son in Livermore, Jan. 12, 1890, literally falling 
asleep, as the precise moment of his demise is not known. He 
was a native of New York. In early life he built an extensive 
foundry business at Union Springs, Cayuga County. He 
came to California in 1854, oi)erating in Santa Cruz, the first 
foundry built outside of San Francisco. He built a handsome 
residence here and held several positions of trust. In 1865 he 
was elected member of the Legislature from Santa Cruz Co.

tion of President Lincoln and served three years and six

a good speaker, and a ready conversationalist. His flow and 
grace of language drew all to him that heard him.

GEORGE T. ANTHONY (1244), youngest son of Ben- 
jamin and Alice Odell Anthony, was born Jnne 9, 1824, in 
Alayfield, Fulton County, N. Y., married Rosa A. Lyon. He 
was born of orthodox Quaker parents, as was his distmguished 
cousin, Susan B. Anthony. 

He spent his boyhood in Maytield where he recei\'ed a lim- 
ited school education, working on a farm summers and attend- 
ing school winters. In his eighteenth year he Ijegan learning 
the tin and hardware trade, which he followed for five years. 
He then served two years as clerk in a hardware store. Sub- 
sequently he became a tin and hardware merchant, engaging in 
the manufacture of stoves and agricultural implements for a 
period of nine vears, when he entered the commission business 
in New York citv. He also served as a recruiting and enlist- 
ing officer for the war and four days he recruited and fitted to 
its maximum the Seventh N. Y. Independent Battery. He was 
mustered into service as Captain with the 'Battery, Aug. 26, 
1862, serving with it until the close of the war. He was bre- 


vetted Major for meritorious and gallant services in the last 
campaign and was mustered out of service. June 12, 1865. He 
removed to Leavenworth, Kansas, in November, 1865;, and was 
editor of the "Leavenworth Daily Bulletin and Daily Conser- 
vative" papers that were finally merged into the "Leavenworth 
Times." For six years he was editor and publisher of the 
"Kansas Fanner." He was appointed Laiited States Revenue 
Collector by President Johnston and was president of the Kan- 
sas State Board of Agriculture and of the State Board of Cen- 
tennial Managers for the State of Kansas, in which offices he 
was serving at the time of his election as governor of the State 
of Kansas, Nov. 17, 1876. Since his retirement from the 
gubernatorial chair he has been engaged in active railroading 
in old Mexico, and his connection with the new and most im- 
portant Kansas City Feeder, the Kansas City, Wyandotte and 
North W^estern Railway, cannot fail to prove of great and 
permanent \'alue to that enterprise. 

With but two successful rivals in the state as a public speak- 
er. Gen. Blair and Senator Ingalls, Gov. Anthony indulges in 
no gush of sentiment, but wdiere he shines most is before a syn- 
dicate of hard-headed old millionaires, when compelling them 
to loose their purse strings for some great enterprise that de- 
\-elo])s states, builds up communities, and causes the busy hum 
01 industry to be heard all over the land. 

He is at this time a member of the state legislature, and the 
honor of being the biggest, brainiest governor Kansas has ever 
had, during the first quarter century of her history, has been 
justly awarded to George T. Anthony. 

Ex-Gov. George T. Anthony, who died at Topeka, was 
one of the strong men of Kansas. He went to the 
state in the great wave of emigration that in the years after 
the war carried so many ex-Union soldiers to the newer states 
of the West. Most of them were strong Republicans, and An- 
thony was one of the most aggressive of those wdio located in 
Kansas. The peoi)le of that state liked a fighter, and before he 
had been seven years in the state, he was nominated Republican 
candidate for governor. 

He had his enemies in his own party, and keeping up the 
fight with them, was not re-nominated. He went from the 
go\'ernorship into the building and management of railroads. 
The northern division of the Mexican Central Railroad from 
El Paso to Chihuahua was built under his supervision and 
direction. He had great influence over the Mexican officials 
and people, and great ingenuity and energy in overcoming 
difficulties. He was one of the first men to grapple with the 


prol)lem of constructing railroads across the desert and he 
solved it in a very satisfactory way. 

At the opening of the road he made at Chihuahua one of 
the most impressive and eloquent addresses on political and 
commercial relations of the two republics, and it had great 
effect in creating a sentiment in Mexico favorable to railroads 
built by Americans. ?Ie was a strong man intellectually and 
physically. He was one of the best speakers in the West ; was 
the sort of a man to make devoted friends and bitter enemies ; 
was of the old school of partisians, w'ith special liking for con- 
troversy, was a good administrative officer and a loyal friend 
of Kansas.

overland route, part of his family going by steamer 
from New York. They all married in Indiana, except 
Charles V., who married in California. He died July 
14, 1869, and was buried beside his wife, who preced- 
ed him in death about 12 years. She died May 25, 1858.

of Greenfield. Saratoga Co., N. Y., moved to Fort W^ayne, 
Ind., with her father's family when fifteen. Taught school at 
seventeen and married at eighteen. Her husband was a har- 
nessmaker and later farmer. They went to Santa Cruz in 1856, 
during the gold excitement, having to remain a week in New 
York before passage could be obtained. Going by Panama, 
they were in a railway accident near there, when 60 were 
killed; her husband, self, and child, all injured. She was held 
by timbers, a great weight crushing lier down, and to this 
day she believes — she is 80 years of age — that a miracle was 
performed in answer to her prayers and distress, so she was 



enabled to free herself and minister to her child who was 
passed by as dead, but who recovered, and she wishes her mes- 
sag;e to go forth to all the Anthony descendants that she be- 
lieves her four score years of health and life are due to reliance 
upon the Divine help from her Savior, and her prayer' is that 
all the Anthony branches may receive nourishment from the 
true vine.

1410. The history of Judith Anthony (1229), the eldest 
daughter of Elihu Anthony, is full of interest to her children, 
grandchildren and descendants. Born of a family noted for 
integrity, industry, sobriety, and Christianity, she inherited 
these traits to an unusual degree. She was an efficient helper 
to her mother in bringing up the rest of the children, fourteen 
in all. Their home was eight miles north of Saratoga Springes. 
Nearly all the neighbors were members of the Friend's Society, 
her father being one of the foremost ministers in that section. 
In 1818 she married James S. Allen, and settled on a farm 
having a mill privilege on it, built a mill and manufactured 


woolen machinery. In 1830 they moved to Union Springs, N. 
y. They each hved to the age of 77 years and were buried in 
the Friend's cemetery.

school) and then became matron in Friend's Academy, Union 
Springs, where she had excellent opportunities for finishing 
the education of her daughters. After the marriage of her 
daughters she married Richard Mott of Gansvort, N. Y., and 
lived in Glens Falls, where they spent many happy years in 
church. Sabbath school and temperance work. After his death 
she lived with her daughter, Albertine, at Fort Miller, N. Y., 
and spent her last days at the home of her youngest daughter. 
Mrs. Eliza Dean, Ferrisburg, Vt. Thus ends a happy and 
useful life.

served the Union in the War of the Rebelhon, receiving at his 
discharge a warrant for 160 acres. He located in North Da- 
kota, where, with a Tree Claim and Settler's Claim added, he 
has now a large farm, yielding in 1893, 6000 bu. of wheat, 
2000 of oats and barley. Blizzards, cyclones and exigencies of 
frontier life have called for the exercise of the Anthony resolu- 
tion. Amid their labors benevolent, church and Sabbath school 
v»'ork have found a place. They now live at Hope, Steele 
County, North Dakota, leaving the farm activities to their son.

cate. Our family moved to Union Springs, N. Y., where he 
had an Academic education and something of a collegiate 
course, as in addition to primary Latin reading, he read the 
entire twelve books of Virgil and all of Cicero and Sallust, 
after which he studied French, German, Italian. This brings 
his history up to the age of 21. Dec. 4, 1849, he married Har- 
riet A. Chase and they became members of the Presbyterian 
Church, Union Springs, N. Y., after a wonderful revival ; re- 
presented the church in its various offices as deacon, elder, clerk 
of its sessions for twenty years. Presbytery, synod, commis- 
sioned to General Assembly, St. Louis, 1867, Baltimore in 
1873. Delivered the 70th anniversary address, Union Springs, 
again at the Centennial Anniversary; both addresses are in 

Having lived a temperate life, I have passed four score 
years and feel as young as ever. Wife died Mar. 30, 1891.

This branch of the Anthony family deserves more than a 
mere mention in the Anthony genealogy. 

Li the early part of the eighteenth century, John Mason An- 
thony, son of Elihu of Greenfield, Saratoga County, ni. Mary 
Allen and settled in Mayfield, Fulton County, N. Y., on a 
farm left vacant by the sudden death of his br(5ther, Benja- 
min. Nature had endowed this farm with springs of water 
which were utilized for manufacturing purposes and wagon 
making. Blacksmithing and the manufacture of all kinds of 
edged tools were carried on successfully by father and sons, 
who were natural born mechanics, of an inventive turn of 
mind, in^•enting and building complicated machinery for their 


''Trip Hammer Shop" (for that is what they called it). It 
was here they lived and worked and reared a family of eleven 
children in the midst of the clatter and bang of the ponderous 
trip hammer, forging out of iron and steel, at white heat, 
every conceivable piece of mechanism ; but when prosperity 
was at its very height fire reduced the shop to ashes. Not dis- 
couraged, they rebuilt and three of his sons followed the busi- 
ness. John Mason Anthony lived on the farm until the death 
of his wife, when he went to the home of his daughter, Han- 
nah, Mrs. George A. Streeter, Johnstown, X. Y., and died 
}.Iarch 25, 1882.

Oren is a natural born mechanic. He made axes on his 
father's anvil at the age of fourteen years. Thinking his time 
too valuable to work for dad, he bought his time of his father 
and commenced to paddle his own canoe. He became a mas- 
ter workman in all the metals, especially iron and steel. The 
tempering- and forging of all kinds of edged tools was to him 
a natural gift and delight. He has given to the world the 
benefit of some valuable inventions. He is now running a trip 
hammer shop, making edged tools. Has a fine water power 
and a beautiful pond of clear water in front of his new resi- 
dence, and, while he gathers thousands of tons of ice every 
year and is considered the largest ice man in the country, there 
is nothing frigid about Oren. He is a genial, homespun sort 
of a man and awfully fond of company. I hope all the re- 
latives will make him a visit, he will be glad to see you. Leave 
the N. Y. Central at Fonda, take the Fonda, Johnstown and 
Northville R. R. for Mayfield, get off at Anthony's Crossing 
and vou are there, walk right in. The pet parrot will yell. 


"Hello, Colonel ! Don't be frightened, take a chair and make 
yourself at home. Oren will be in in a minute." — 1895. Oren 
died Feb. 21, 1900. Sarah died Mar. 3, 1902.

Some of the descendants have taken exceptions to the semi- 
goat that adorns the Anthony coat of arms, with his golden 
hoofs and golden horns, and want to kick him off the high 
position he occupies without giving the subject a single 
thought, that it may betoken one that is willing to fare hard so 
that he may be in high emplovment, honored, and that charac- 
teristic of the Anthony family seems to crop out all along the 
line from 1495 to 1904, the fare-hard proposition. Humphrey 
Anthony, the subject of our sketch, ran up against it in very 
early life. Tradition tells us that the family was not blessed 
with an overabundance of this world's goods and that his 
mother was want to spin tow for skim milk to feed the chil- 
dren, and that at a very early age he was bound out to a man 
l)v the name of Tripp to learn the blacksmith trade, and served 
his time and received his pay in hard fare, three months school- 
ing and a few pennies in his pocket for putting new blades in 
jack knives, working overtime. This brings him to the age of 
21 and to the turning point of his life, when he went to a place 
of diversion and had to loan the crowd money to pay the 
fiddler. He swore by the crook of his elbow that, if he couldn't 
keep better company, he'd keep none at all, and ''good com- 
I)any" was the pride of his whole life. He was a man of rug- 
ged physic[ue, strong mentally and physically, of medium 
build, yet knotted in a form of nerve and muscle that was 
quick to act. 

In the winter of 1793, according to his own account, when 
the snow was waistband high, he shifted his clothes and left 
the parental roof with only one object in view, and that was to

Next Monthly Meeting. — Friend Humphrey Anthony and 
Hannah Lapham appeared at this meeting and offered propos- 
als of marriage with each other, producing consent of their 
parents. Jeremiah Smith and George Lapham are appointed 
to look into the man's clearance in relation to marriage and 
report at the next meeting, where they are desired to come for 
an answer. 

N'ext Monthly Meeting. — Representatives called and pres- 
ent. The friends that were appointed to make inquiry into 
Humphrey Anthony's clearance in respect to marriage report 
that they have made the necessary inc^uiry and do not find any- 
thing to hinder his proceeding-. Humphrey Anthony and 
Hannah Lapham appeared at this meeting and renewed their 
proposals of marriage with each other ; nothing appearing to 
hinder, therefore, they are left at liberty to accomplish the 
same between this and the next monthly meeting, according 
to the good order of Friends. Jeremiah Smith and George 
Southwick are appointed to see the marriage consummated and 
report at the next meeting, producing marriage certificate.

The Friends society was formed in the year 1781. David 
Anthony, Isaac Kelley, Joshua Lapham, George Lapham, 
Adam Harkness and their families constituted the society at 
its first organization. 


They worshipped in a log dwelling house until about the 
year 1786, when they erected a meeting house about half mile 
west of the village. The building lot with land for burying 
ground, the whole containing four and a half acres, was given 
to the society by Daniel Lapham. 

In 1 819 the society numbered about forty families.

Moiithlv j\Iccti]}g, Adams, 4 iito., 1783. — An information 
came to this meeting by way of the preparative meeting, signi- 
fying that David Anthony and David Baker have committed 
a misdemeanor, thereby causing the truth to be evil spoken of. 
In cutting a bee tree (and taking the honey therefrom) when 
the tree had been previously found and marked. Therefore 
this meeting appoint George Lapham and Adam Harkness to 
treat with them on that account and report the state of their 
minds at the next meeting. 

Monthly Meeting, Adams, 5 mo., 1783. — David Anthony 
and David Baker produced papers of acknowledgements to 
this meeting which are as followeth : 

Dear Friends: These are to inform you that through un- 
watch fulness, I was inadvertantly concerned with others in 
taking u]) a swarm of bees, and at the same time there was a 
scruple in our minds of the tree's beings found by reason of 
some mark we found on it, and, though I am conscientious to 
myself, I never intended to wrong any person, yet I am sen- 
sible I ought not to have meddled with it and do fully condemn 
the same, being sensible I have thereby given occasion to cause 
the truth to be evil spoken of. which has caused me much sor- 
row of heart and heavy exercise, and I desire to be more on 
my watch in the future. 

David Anthony. 

The 13th, nth, 1783. To the monthly meeting, Adams. 

Dear Friends: I have been under an exercise on an account 
of a piece of my conduct in being concerned with others in 
taking up a swarm of bees, not being at that time satisfied in 
my own mind whether the tree had been found by anybody 
or not, it being so blindly marked, and also I had no desire of 
doing any man an injury, yet I acknowledge I did wrong in 
cutting the tree so inconsiderately as I did, also in talking so 
inconsiderately and variably about it afterwards. All which 
said misconduct of mine I am sorry for and do condemn, hop- 
ing for the future to be preserved from giving occasion for the 
truth to be reproached. 

This from your friend, 

David Baker. 



An information came to this meeting- by way of the prepara- 
tive meeting signifying that Major Smith is neglectful in at- 
tending our meeting, also for going to a place of diversion. 
He being labored with from time to time, therefore, this meet- 
ing appoint Samuel Cooper, John Wells, and Snow Randall to 
treat with him on that account and report the state of his 
mind to the next meeting. 

N'e.rt Monthly Meeting. — -The friends that were appointed 
to treat with Major Smith on account of his outgoings, report 
that they have had an opportunity with him and found him 
very unsensible of his transgressions in many respects, which, 
after a solid deliberation thereon, this meeting appoint the 
same friends with the addition of Samuel Wells to labor with 
him and endeavor to bring him to a sense of his outgoings 
and report the state of his mind to the next meeting. 


The law regulating dress in the i6th century in the early set- 
ment of Alassachusetts, when our forefathers were in such 
straitened circumstances, died out in the letter but not in the 
spirit. My grandfather, Humphrey Anthony, born in old 
Dartmouth, Mass., in 1770, without any schooling, was bound 
out to the Tripps as an apprentice to learn the blacksmith 
trade. Hard work, poor fare, and rough usage soured his dis- 
position, and he had his opinion about people that dressed ex- 
travagantly. When the wool was raised on the farm and 
carded into rolls and mother spun the yarn, and with the old 
hand loom wove the cloth, cut and made the boy's little home- 
made frocks, grandfather's mind was at rest, but when moth- 
er ceased such labors and made us some broadcloth coats and 
put on some brass buttons, and sent us down to ask grand- 
father if he would give us a few specked apples, I recollect 
it just as well as though it was yesterday, and it happened 
sixty years ago, it was a cold frosty morning' and we stood 
by the kitchen stove warming- our little hands, when grand- 
father came staffing in, and when he saw the brass buttons, he 
exclaimed; "Good Lord, if here ain't Abram's boys all cov- 
ered over with poverty blossoms !"

Tlie IV r iter. 

Massachusetts enacted a law in 165 1, ordering that persons 
whose estates did not exceed £200 and those dependent upon 
them, should not wear gold or silver buttons, gold or silver 


lace, bone lace above 28 cents per yard, or silk hoods or scarfs 
upon penalty of los. for each offense. Any person wearing 
such articles might be assessed in connt}^ rates as if they had 
estates of £200. 

The first attempt to ha^'e this law observed in Hampshire 
was made in 1673. At the March Court, twenty-five wives 
and five maids, belonging to Springfield, Northampton, Had- 
ley, Hatfield, and Westfield, were presented by the jury as 
persons of small estate, who ''used to wear silk contrary to 
law." Six of these belong to Hadley, viz: 

Wife of John Westcarr was acquitted. 

Wife of Joseph Barnard was fined los. and cost, 2s., 6d. 

Wife of Thomas Wells, Jr., was admonished. 

Wife of Edward Granis was admonished. 

AMfe of Joseph Kellog was acquitted. 

Maid Mary Broughton was admonished. 

Of the thirty, only three were fined and the fines were re- 
mitted at the next court. 

At the March court, 1674, the wife of Edward Granis was 
again presented for wearing silk. Her silk hood and scarf 
were brought into court. "Though somewhat worn, they had 
been good silk." She was fined los. 

At the March court, 1676. the Jury presented sixty-eight 
persons from five towns, viz : Thirty-eight wives and maids 
and thirty you'ng men, "some for wearing silk, and that in a 
flaunting manner, and others for long hair and other extrava- 
gances." Two were fined los. and many of the others were 
ordered to pay the clerks fees, 2s., 6d. each. 

There were ten from Hadlev, viz : Joseph Barnard and his 
wife, Sarah, and his sister, Sarah; William Rocker, Thomas 
Grofts, Jonathan W^ells, Joseph Granis. Nehemiah Dickinson, 
wife of Mark W^arner and wife of Thomas Wells, Jr., who 
was fined los. Nine were admonished and ordered to pay the 
clerk's fees. 

Several of the sixty-eight presented were wives, daughters 
or sons of men of good estate. Two unmarried daughters of 
Elder John Strong of Northampton, were among the number. 

In March, 1678, eight females of Northampton, Springfield, 
etc., were complained of for wearing" silk contrary to law in 
this day of calamity and trouble. Two were fined los., some 
paid clerk's fees and some were referred to another court. 

The boldest of these females w^as Hannah Lyman, sixteen 
years of age, daughter of Richard Lyman, Northampton, de- 
ceased. She was presented Sept., 1676, "for wearing silk in a 
flaunting' manner in an offensive way and garb, not only be- 
fore, but when she stood presented, not only in ordinary times 


but in extraordinary times." She was fined los., 1677, Jan- 

1 hese early Christians estal^hshed an influence in behalf of 
morality and practical religion to be coveted by later genera- 
tions. Prayer and self-abnegation and self-sacrifice were the 
characteristics of these pioneers, which gave society a mould 
that was permanent in its sweet perfume of spiritual blessings. 
Notwithstanding the many Christian virtues, the spirit of self- 
denial and high toned piety of the New England fathers, they 
had their imperfections. Their many trials and crosses must 
have soured their temper in relation to the conduct of prodigal 
youth and other companions of their heroic struggles. Want 
of prudence and foresight vexed their souls when laboring so 
industriously to maintain a livelihood, since fire and sword and 
tomahawk and death were constantly imaged before them.

Daniel Anthony was a man of high talents and fine educa- 
tion, born of Quaker parents, and received his education at 
Nine Pardner's Quaker school. He commenced teaching school 
in a building in his father's dooryard under the old willow 
tree. He was also in early life a manufacturer, and with his 
brother John, built the pump log factory on Tophet Brook at 
Bowen's corners, about three fourths of a mile east from the 
village of Adams, in 1822. It was 30 by 40, and 3^2 stories ' 

high, for the manufacture of cotton yarns. The water was : 

thrown upon an overshot wheel 26 feet in diameter on a level 
with the third floor. The weaving was done by the families 
in the surrounding neighborhood. About 183 1, it was used 
for the manufacturing of satinets, operated by his brother-in- 
law, Isaac U. Hoxie, who continued until 1834, when the 
factory was closed. The factory was then taken down and 
removed to the Walker farm by Abram Anthony, for farm 1 

]3urposes, where it now stands in a good state of preservation. 
Daniel Anthony w'as the prime mover in organizing- the first 
Academy in the town of Adams. He left Adams in 1827 and 
lived in Rochester, N. Y., the remaining part of his life. He 
was a strong- abolitionist and free soiler, and a very ready con- 
versationalist upon all the topics of the day. but unlike his 
daug-hter Susan B. Anthony, was not a public speaker. He 
died at Rochester Nov. 2'5, 1862. His two daughters, Susan 
B. and Mary, reside at the Anthony home. No. 17 Madison.

An^ Extract from the Preface of Life and JJ\')rks of Snsan B. 
Anthony (1634) by Ida Husted Harper: 

The intent of this work has been to trace briefly the evolu- 
tions of a life and a condition. The transition of the voune 


Quaker girl, afraid of the sound of her own voice, into the 
reformer, orator and statesman, is no more wonderful than 
the change in the status of woman, effected so largely through 
her exertions. At the beginning she was a chattel in the eye 
of the law ; shut out from all advantages of higher education 
and opportunities in the industrial world ; an utter dependent 
on man; occupying a subordinate position in the church; re- 
strained to the narrowest limits along social lines ; an absolute 
nonentity in politics. Toda}^ American women are envied by 
those of all other nations, and stand comparatively free indiv- 
iduals, with the exception of political disabilities. 

During the fifty years which have wrought this revolution, 
just one woman in all the world has given every day of her 
time, every dollar of her money, every power of her being, 
to secure this result. She w^as impelled to this work by no 
personal grievance, but solely through a deep sense of the in- 
justice which, on every side, she saw perpetrated against her 
sex, and which she determined to combat. Never for (^ne 
short hour has -the cause of woman been forgotten or put aside 
for any other object. Never a single tie has been formed, 
either of affection or business, which w^ould interfere with 
this supreme purpose. Never a speech has been given, a trip 
taken, a ^•isit made, a letter written, in all this half-century, 
that has not been done directly in the interest of this one object. 
There has been no thought of i^ersonal comfort, advancement 
or glory; the self-abnegation, the self-sacrifice, have been ab- 
solute — they have been unparalleled." 

There has been no desire to emphasize the hardships and 
unpleasant features, but only to picture in the fewest possible 
words the many consecutive years of unremitting toil, begun 
amidst conditions which now seem almost incredible, and con- 
tinued w^ith sul^lime courage in the face of calumny and per- 
secution such as can not be imagined by the women of today. 
Nothing has been concealed or mitigated. In those years of 
constant aggression, when every step was an exiDeriment, there 
must have been mistakes, but the story would be incomplete 
if they were left untold. No effort has been made to portray 
a perfect character, but only a woman who dared take the 
blows and bear the scorn that other women might be free. 
Future generations will read these pages through tears, and 
will wonder what manner of people those were wdio not only 
permitted this woman to labor for humanity fifty years, almost 
unaided, but also compelled her to beg or earn the money with 
which to carry on her work. If certain opinions shall be 
found herein which the world is not ready to accept, let it be 
remembered that, as Miss Anthony was in advance of pulilic 


>c::::^^,<^>«'^<-^ <5^ ^;^5^^^^^^ 


sentiment in the past, she may be equally so in the present, and 
that the radicalism which we reject today may be the con- 
servatism at which we will wonder tomorrow. 

Those who follow the story of this life w411 confirm the as- 
sertion that every girl who now enjoys a college education ; 
every woman who has the chance of earning an honest living 
in whatever sphere she chooses, every wife who is protected by 
law in the possession of her person and her property ; every 
mother who is blessed with the custody and control of her own 
children — owes these sacred privileges to Susan B. Anthony 
beyond all others. This biography goes to the public with the 
earnest hope that it may carry to every man a conviction of 
his imperative duty to secure for women the same freedom 
which he' himself enjoys; and that it may impress upon every 
woman a solemn obligation to complete the great work of this 
noble pioneer. 


Susan B. Anthony, born Feb. 15. 1820, in Adams, ]\Iass-, 
has a national reputation. She was born of New England an- 
cestry ; in religion her father was a Quaker and her mother a 
Baptist. When Susan was five years old her parents moved 
to Washington County, N. Y., and there the future earnest 
and enthusiastic leader of the great political reform, which is 
to place the disfranchised sex on a plane with the self-aj^point- 
ed ruling clan, spent her girlhood and grew to thoughtful and 
industrious womanhood. Her education had not been neg- 
lected, and so, when pecuniary misfortune came to her father 
at the age of seventeen, she began the avocation of school 
teaching, about the only respectable avocation a girl could en- 
gage in fifty years ago. While caring for herself by an in- 
dustry itself pleasing to her, but at that time a poorly recom- 
pensed profession, she had abundant time to reflect upon the 
legal injustice and countless disabilities of which woman, on 
account of her sex, is a victim. During those years, her matur- 
ing mind formed substantial convictions, one of which was as 
to rights. The cause of w^oman's rights was from the outset 
nearest and dearest to her, and she was quick to discern that 
the ballot was the key to the situation. She consequently never 
relaxed her demand and, wdiile she has given incidental aid to 
every important cause that has arisen during the last forty-five 
years, she has steadily labored for the ballot as the means to 
gain numerous desired ends. So, as early as 1850, she com- 
menced to speak publicly for woman's rights to equal wages 
for equal work. She had also snoken for temperance (being 


a member of a society called the Daughters of Temperance, 
which in its day was an effective organization). Most of her 
addresses are extemporaneous; she rarely indulges in a "set 
speech." The address she delivers abounds in facts which are 
stated with marvelous conciseness and directness. She com- 
prehends general principles, is logical and skillful in drawing" 
deductions, and is remarkably well versed in American history 
and in the principles of the government, having in this knowl- 
edge no peer among- her co-workers. She does not adorn her 
periods with the "flowers of rhetoric," though her apprecia- 
tion of the ornate style is very high. Her utterance is rapid 
and clear, and face, voice, manner and pose indicate an earnest- 
ness, a devotion, a consecration, which are the inmost essence 
of eloquence. During the last decade her popularity on the 
platform and in private circles have grown apace and she has 
perhaps received more proof of public and private esteem than 
anv other American woman. 

At the age of 65, she enjoyed a respite, traveling in Europe 
for health and recreation. In England she was the honored 
guest of people famous throughout the civilized world. While 
abroad, she traveled over Italy, France, Germany and Swit- 

One of the honors rarely paid to a woman is the pulilic cele- 
bration of her birthday. This has been accorded to Susan 4!). 
Anthony Jor a number of years. From an object of ridicule 
and contumely in past years, among cultured neople all over 
the world, now Susan B. ,\nthony has come to be admired for 
her faithful consistency in a cause to which she has devoted 
her life. She is loved and honored for her many good quali- 
ties of head and heart. 

There is one bill stands against Susan B. Anthony that prob- 
ably never will be discharged. When at the close of her trial 
for having cast a vote in 1872 to test the 14th and 15th amend- 
ments of the Constitution of the United States, because she 
was a woman and not a man, the Judge said : "The sentence 
of this Court is that you pay a fine of $100.00 and costs of the 
prosecution." Miss Anthony replied: "May it please Your 
Honor, I will never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty," and 
this outstanding bill never has been and never will be collected. 


Opened on the morning of the 1 7-1 8th of June, 1873. 

The lovely village of Canandagua. with its placid lake re- 
flecting the soft summer sky, gave no evidence of the great 
event that was to make the day and place memorable in his- 
torv. All was still, the usual peaceful atmosphere pervaded 



the conservative town and, with the exception of a small group 
of men and women in earnest conversation at the hotel, few 
there were who thought or cared about the great principles of 
government involved in the pending trial. When the tolling of 
the Court House bell announced the hour had arrived. Miss 
/\nthony, her counsel and friends, promptly ap]:)eared and 
were soon followed by the District Attorney and Judge, repre- 
senting the power of the United States, — Miss Anthony to 
sirind as a criminal before the bar of her country for having 
daiel to exercise a freeman's right of self-government, and 
that country, through its judiciary, to falsify its grand declara- 
tion as to the ecjuality of its citizens by a verdict of guiltv be- 
cause of sex. 

On the bench sat Judge Hunt, a small-brained, pale faced, 
prim looking man, enveloped in a faultless suit of black broad- 
cloth and a showy white necktie. This was the first criminal 
case he had been called on to try since his appointment, and 
with remarkable forethought he had penned his decision before 
hearing it. At times by his side'sat Judge Hall, who had de- 
clared himself unwilling to try the suit. Within the bar, sat 
Miss Anthony and counsel, the Hon. Henry R. Selden. and 
Hon. John \^an Voorhis, and several of the ladies who had 
voted, Mrs. Gage and the United States District Attorney. 
Upon the right sat the jur}', while the remaining space was 
crowded with curious and anxious listeners among- whom were 
men prominent in public life. 

The indictment presented against Miss Anthony will be re- 
garded by the future historian as a remarkable document to 
have originated in a republic against one of its native-born 
citizens guilty of no crime. 

The following ladies voted : Mrs. Hannah Anthonv Mosh- 
er, Mrs. Mary S. Hebard, Mrs. Nancy M. Chapman, Mrs. Jane 
M. Cogswell, Mrs. Martha N. French, Mrs. Margaret Lev- 
don, Mrs. Lottie Boles Anthony, Mrs. Hannah Chatfield. 
Mrs. Susan M. Hough, Mrs. Sarah Truesdale, Mrs. Marv Pul- 
ver, Mrs. Rhoda De Garma. Mrs. Gualma Anthonv McLean, 
Miss Mary S. Anthony, ]\Iiss Ellen T. Baker. Seven other 
ladies registered but were not allowed to vote. 

Honorable Richard Crowley, LJ. S. District Attorney, op- 
ened the case as follows : 

May if Please the Court and Gent! emeu of the Jury: 

On the 5th of November, 1872, there was held in this state a 
general election for different officers and among those candi- 
dates to represent several districts of this state in the Congress 


of the United States. The defendant, Miss Susan B. Anthony, 
at that time resided in the city of Rochester in the Connty of 
Monroe, Northern District of New York, and upon the 5th 
of November, 1S72, she ^-oted for a representative in the Con- 
gress of the United States, to represent the 29th congressional 
district of this state. At that time she was a woman — I sup- 
pose there will be no question about that. The question in this 
case, if there be a question of fact about it at all, will be a 
question of law rather than a question of fact. Whatever Miss 
Anthony's intentions may have been — whether they were good 
or otherwise — she did not have a right to vote upon that 
ciuestion, and if she did vote without having a lawful right 
to vote, then there is no Cjuestion but what she is guilty of 
violating the law of the United States, in that behalf enacted 
by the Congress of the United States. 

We do not claim in this case, gentlemen, that Aliss Anthony 
is of that class of people who go about "repeating." \\'e don't 
claim that she went from place to place for the purpose of 
offering her vote, but we do claim that upon the 5th of No- 
vember, 1872, she voted, and whether she believed she had a 
right to vote or not, it being a question of law, that she is 
within the statute. It is not necessary for me, gentlemen, at 
this stage of the case to state all the facts which will be proven 
on the part of the government. I shall leave that to be shown 
by the evidence and the witnesses; and if any question of law 
shall arise His Honor will undoubtedly give you instructions 
as he shall deem proper. Conceded that on the 5th day of No- 
vember, 1872, ]\Iiss Susan B. Anthony, was a woman.

Judge Seldon opened the case in behalf of Susan B. Anth- 
ony as follows : 

//' the Court Please, Gentlemen of the Jury: 

This is a case of no ordinary magnitude, although man}' 
might regard it of very little importance. The question wheth- 
er my client has done anything to justify her being consigned 
to a felon's prison or not, is one that interests her very essent- 
ially and that interests the people also essentially. I claim that 
when she had her name registered as a voter, and voted for a 
member of Congress, she was as much entitled to vote as any 
that voted at that election, according to the Constitution and 
laws of the government under which she lives. If I maintain 
that proposition as a matter of course, she has committed no 
off'ense and is entitled to be discharged at vour hands. 


If she sincerely believed that she had a right to vote and 
offered her ballot in good faith, under that belief, whether 
right or wrong, by the laws of this country, she is guilty of no 


Sddon, for Defendant. — The only alleged ground of an 
illegality of the defendant's vote is that she is a woman. If the 
same act had been done by her brother under the same circum- 
stances, the act would have been not only innocent but honor- 
able and laudable, but, having been done by a woman, it is 
said to be a crime. The crime, therefore, consists not in the 
act done, but in the simple fact that the person doing it was a 
woman and not a man. 

I believe this is the first instance in which a woman had 
been arraing-ed in a criminal court merely on account of her 
sex. If the advocator of female suffrage had been allowed to 
choose the point of attack to be made on their position, they 
could not have chosen it more favorably to themselves ; and I 
am disposed to thank those who have been instrumental in this 
proceeding, for presenting it in the form of a criminal prosecu- 
tion. Women have the same interest that men have in the es- 
tablishment and maintainance of good government; they are 
to the same extent as men bound to obey the laws ; they suffer 
to the same extent by bad laws and profit to the same extent 
by good laws. What an absurdity, to use no harsher expres- 
sion, to reward men and punish women for the same act, with- 
out giving them any voice in the Cjuestion, which should be re- 
warded and which punished. The defendant is indicted under 
the 19th section of the Act of Congress : "Voting without hav- 
ing a lawful right to vote" is a crime and punishable by a fine 
not to exceed $500 or bv imprisonment for a term not exceed- 
ing three years, or both, in the discretion of the Court and 
shall pay the costs of prosecution." 

I concede that if Miss Anthony voted, knowing that as a 
woman she had no right to vote, she may properly be con- 
victed, and that if she had dressed herself in men's apparel 
and assumed a man's name or resorted to any other artifice to 
deceive the board of inspectors, the jury might pronounce her 
guilty. All that I claim is that if she voted in perfect good 
faith, believing that it was her right, she has committed no 

One other matter will close what I have to say. Miss An- 
thony believed and was advised that she had a right to vote. 
She may also have been advised, as was clearly the fact, that 
the question as to her right could not be brought before the 


courts for trial, without her voting- or offering to vote, and if 
either is criminal, one was as much so as the other. There- 
fore, she stands now arraigned as a criminal for taking the 
only step by which it was possible to bring constitutional ques- 
tion as to her right before the tribunals of the country for ad- 

If for thus acting in the most perfect good faith, with mo- 
tives as pure and impulses as noble as any that can find place 
in your Honor's breast in the administration of justice, she is 
by laws of her country to be condemned as a criminal. Her 
condemnation, however, under such circumstances would only 
add another most weighty reason to those which I have already 
advanced to show that women need the ballot for protection. 

Carlyle has said, "Beware when the great God lets loose a 
thinker upon this earth." When Susan B. Anthony was born, 
a thinker was "let loose." Her voice and her pen have lighted 
a torch, whose sacred fire, like that of some old Roman tem- 
ples, dies not, but whose penetrating ray shall brighten the 
path of women down the long line of ages yet to come, our 
children and our children's children.

From the time of his settlement in Leavenworth in June, 
1857, to the present day, he has been inseparably connected 
with the history of the city. As Mayor, during the exciting 
days of the war he was placed in a peculiarly trying position 
and one that called for courage and determination and thor- 
ough familiarity with state and city laws and a wise judgment. 
These qualities he has possessed to an unusual degree. Since 
May, 1871, he has been best known as proprietor and editor of 
the Leavenworth Times, which is one of the most influential 
dailies in the state. 

Daniel Reed Anthony was born in Adams, Mass., Aug. 22, 
1824, son of Daniel and Lucy (Reed) Anthony and a brother 
of Susan B. Anthony, widely known as the advocate of woman 

His paternal grandfather, Humphrey Anthony, was a Quak- 
er and a descendant of John Anthony, who came from Eng- 
Ic'nd in 1634, and settled in Portsmouth, R. L The maternal

grandfather, Daniel Reed, was a soldier in the Revolutionary 
War, serving in the division under Arnold that marched in 
midwinter from New England to Quebec, suffering untold 
hardships. He also fought under Stark at Bennington, Vt., 
where Burgoyne was defeated. 

At thirteen years of age he attended the Academy at Union 
Springs. N. Y., and afterwards worked" in his father's cotton 
mill and store at Battenville, N. Y., and later in his tiour mill. 

When 23 years of age he removed with the family to Ro- 
chester, N. Y., where he taught school two winters and then 
engaged in the insurance business. 

In July, 1854, he visited Kansas with the first colony sent 
out by the New England Emigrant Society under the leader- 
ship of Eli Thayer. During that visit he assisted in founding 
the city of Lawrence which at that time contained but one 
house. Returned to Rochester in the fall of 1854 and then re- 
moved to and settled in the new and growing town of Leaven- 

When the Civil War began he was commissioned Lieuten- 
ant Colonel of the First Kansas Cavalry and commanded his 
troops at the battle of Little Blue in Nov., 1861, in which he 
won a victory from a force of guerillas of four times his num- 
ber. During the following year he was i^rincipally on duty in 
Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Alabama. On resign- 
ing his commission he resumed his duties as postmaster of 
Leavenworth to which he had been appointed by President 
Lincoln, Apr., 1861, and which he filled five years. 

Li 1863 he was elected mayor by a large majorit}'. His 
rule was characterized by a vigorous policy that brought him 
both friends and enemies. Many of the most permanent im- 
provements were made during his term and the growth in pop- 
ulation was never so marked as then.

Mary S. Anthony (T637), was born at Battenville, X. Y., 
the youngest of four daughters. "She, not I, is the suffrage 
pioneer in our family," said Susan B. Anthony, and continued: 
"Mary attended the first woman's rights convention, and when 
I came home from teaching school. I heard nothing but suf- 
frage talk. I didn't believe in it then, but sister Marv was a 
firm advocate. My brother-in-law used to say that I could 
preach woman's rights, but it took Mary to practice them." 
For twenty-six consecutive years, from 18^7 to 1883, she 
taught in Rochester public schools. Many of the best citizens 
of the city once went to school to her, and it is perhaps her in- 
fluence upon those minds and lives that my sister considers the 
most important part of her life work. She has alwa}'S l^een 
identified with the suffrage cause in this city and state, and for 
a number of years she was corresponding secretary, also presi- 
dent Political Equality Club. I cannot tell you how she has 
helped me and sustained me. She has kept a home where I 
might come and rest. From the very beginning- she has cheered 
and comforted me. She has looked after the great mass of de- 
tails, my wardrobe, my business, etc., leaving me free." 

Rev. W. C. Gannett says of her : "Li after years men will 
say the battle was won by two sisters, because there never could 
have been a Susan abroad if it had not been for a Mary at

Hannah (Anthony) Hoxie ( 1684). was one of those living 
examples that calls for more than a passing" notice. She was 
possessed of a gentle spirit, a temperament alive to all innocent 
joys, to all harmonies of life, a deep, earnest faith, a character 
:^ of exceptional interest, not only to professing Christians, but 

' to all classes and conditions of men in prosperity or adversity. 

She had the gift of expression, a simple and pelucid style, 
through which the soul poured itself out. She possessed the 
qualities that endeared her to the friends that knew her. There 
was a kindling' of intense enthusiasm which burned in all her 
life and remained unquenched to the last, the inner working 
of a unique and winning personality. Her public ministry in 
Friend's Society covers a period of over thirty years, a divine 
light apparently inspiring her, prompting as w^ell to deeds of 
private worth along pathways where care and want were sorest 
realized.^ Her voice was known to soothe and encourage, her

hand to aid. As wife and mother most gentle and loving was 
her deportment. No hasty word fell from her lips, preserving 
an equanimity and composure that only strict discipline united 
with strong faith will acquire. Her example was unrivalled in 
excellence, many of her last years of her life were devoted to 
an aged father in the bestowal of that care and filial affection 
which springs from innate moral ubiquity and deep Christian 
guidance, ©h. J^J^**^ eJL- ^"y^*-*^ '' //-t, a^cA^^^ A^ tCtA-t*-t^ t-*-*/".

In March they emigrated to Illinois and were among the 
first settlers in Earlville. Her husband was interested in farm- 
ing, dairying, inventing, manufacturing, and fruit raising at 
various periods. Susan Richardson was a woman of great 
self-control, decision and firmness, a devoted mother and also 
one who studied questions of general welfare in education and 
reform. She was ever ready to help others in sickness or 
trouble. Her courage was equal to her own trials and was 
often imparted to others. She died at the home of her daugh- 
ter, Susie, in Milwaukee, and was buried at Earlville, where 
her home had l)een for forty-five years.

1726. Ira Anthony Hoxie (1688), h. May 26, 1825, son of

He was a member of the Berkshire Bar. His taste Avas lit- 
erary and he was a contributor for years to the Pittsfield Sun. 
He was endowed with a clear and discriminating mind and 
he used his materials of thought and sentiment to good advan- 
tage. Twice, once in prose and once in poetic composition, he 
was a successful competitor for literary prizes. His disin- 
clination to the responsibilities of a public life was marked. He 
possessed large self respect, a cultivated taste, and was modest 
and purely unassuming in his habits. The especial trait of his 
character was unfeigned and ardent love of nature. Of her 
works he was a most diligent and persevering student. The 
instinct of solitude in him pictured to his mind the beauty and 
grandeur of solitary scenes. Nature's works were more sacred 
and lovely to him because in them he beheld the wisdom, the 
skill, the power and the boundless wealth of the Heavenly 
Father. In the midst of his years and manhood and strength, 
he was stricken down at the age of thirty-six years. 





Ira Anthony Hoxie. 

Aye, there it stands upon yon hill, 
Just as it stood of yore, 

When our forefathers, glad of heart, 
Passed slowly through its door. 

A plain old-fashioned house it is, 
Devoid of dome or spire, 

Pvilpit, or pew, or paint, or aisle, 
Or ausht that men admire. 

No pealing organ's solemn notes 
Resound within its walls. 

But all is quietness and peace. 
As light from heaven falls. 

Through sun and storm, from year 

It rules in quiet sway. 
Though not unmindful of the fate 

That marks it for decay. 

I will not grieve that time has touched 

With hands so rude and cold 
That old brown church upon the hill. 

Or that 'tis growing old; 

But sigh, that man, ungenerous man, 

In his poor heartless pride, 
Has left to ruin and neglect 

The house so sanctified. 

Once, on a summer's Sabbath morn, 
A goodly group was seen 

Arrayed upon its old pine seats. 
Or gathered on its green. 

Each with a smile and cheerfvil word. 

The old, the young, the fair. 
As happy and as peaceful quite 

As though 'twere heaven there. 

How can a soul approach so near 

The presence of his God, 
As when he waits in silence deep 

For Him who dwells above ? 

Whose spirit like a gentle dove 

Has often rested there. 
And touched witn love the pious soul, 

That moved with voiceless prayer. 

But now, alas, it is not so, 

And times are changed indeed: 
I These tears re'ieve my hidden grief, 
Vet who of men will heed 

That poor old church upon the hill. 

Where ruin sits enthroned, 
With cruel woe-delighting train 

That mocks at human moan? 

Hail ruin I fierce, relentless lord I 

At whose destructive hand 
Fall the great, the low, the rich, the poor. 

The small, the mighty land. 

Rest, rest upon yovir churchyard green. 

Upon that hallowed sod. 
Though men have proudly left thee now. 

Old Meeting He--- of God. 

Still, still the spirit round thee cling. 

That triumphs o'er decay. 
And though forsake" by the world. 

Thou are dear to me alwav.

mense proportions.

1817. Joshua Anthony (1627), son of Humphrey anil Han-

He was born and grew to manhood at the old Lapham 
homestead in :\dams,"Mass., where he died July 2^. 1841, 


about noon, being struck by lig'htning while standing in the 
front door of his house. Lightning made a dark colored mark 
down his spine and a hole through the heel of his shoe. It 
slivered the sill, throwing splinters into the cellar and passing 
into the ground. Lightning had been known to strike several 
times in the vicinity of his home, the barn had been previously 
struck and burned. He was a Friend or Quaker in religious 
faith and church membership and during his few years of ac- 
tive busy life had been very successful as a farmer and stock 
raiser. He was sometimes called a drover, as he bought large 
droves of cattle and drove them from Adams to Boston, a 
distance of 150 miles over the mountains before railroads ex- 
isted. He married Lydia T. Buffington, daughter of Zephan- 
iah and Joanna Wells Buffington, born Feb. 5, 1810, who sur- 
vived him about one year. Her death occurred Aug. 27, 
1842, in the thirty-third year of her age. Joshua died age 39. 
The Buffingtons were also Quakers, and lived in Cheshire, 
Mass., previous to their removal to Half Moon, Saratoga 
County, N. Y., where they lived to a good, ripe old age. 
Thev left the homestead to their grandchildren, where two of 
them now reside. Zephaniah Buffington will be remembered 
by all his old acquaintances as the man that came the nearest 
to inventing perpetual motion of any man living, only lacking- 
one wheel when he died.

183^. At the age of six years occurred the death of his 
father, when the family went to live with their grandfather 
Buffington in the town of Cheshire, Mass. (noted only in those 
times for making the biggest cheese that was ever made in the 
world, and reading" the Pittsfield Sun, a Democratic newspa- 
per that was read in every home in the town. It was called 
the Cheshire Bible) ; they then removed to Half Moon, Sara- 
toga County, N. Y., where the children grew to manhood un- 
der the care and guidance of their Quaker grandparents on 
the farm, their mother having died in 1842. Joshua inherit- 
ed a speculative turn of mind and the farm had no charms for 
hmi and he drifted into Anthony's Universal Baking Powder 
business, in a small w'ay, which, under his shrewd business 
m.anagement, has grown to immense proportions. He now 
manufactures baking powder, all kinds of spices and flavoring- 
extracts for New York City trade. The work in the mill is 
under the direct supervision of his two sons, Sidney and Ira. 
who live in the parental home. Joshua resides at Stillwater, 
N. Y. The latch string is always out at these homes for any 
friend or relative that may pass that way.

He, being born a birth-right Quaker, according to the 
Quaker chscipHne should have married a Quakeress and l^een 
pubhshed at least three weeks before marriage and a commit- 
tee appointed to look after the young man's clearance (of 
three men) and three women to look after the young lady's 
clearance and report at the next meeting. If the report was 
favorable they were given the privilege of performing the 
marriage ceremony themselves at any future time in presence 
of witnesses according- to the Quaker form. But pride was 
beginning to creep into the church and it was easier to cross 
the Massachusetts line between Adams, Mass., and Stamford, 
Vt., and get legally married in five minutes than to be one 
month about it in the Quaker order, beside both bride and 
groom had to be members of the church to be married accord- 
ing to the discipline of the church. 

Eunice Eddy was the daughter of Russel and Maria Ma- 
cumber Eddy (from a family of ten children). She was the 
mother of the writer. My grandmother married Russel Eddy 
of Easton, Washington County, N. Y., at the age of seven- 
teen, Dec. 28, 1806. She died at the home of her daug^hter, 
Mrs. Humphrey Anthony, in Adams, Mass., in her 98th year. 
She passed almost her entire life on the farm. She was born 
in the second year of the first term of the presidency of George 
Washington. She was married before the importation of 
slaves was abolished by Congress, with the farm at Easton 
given then'> upon their marriage, the ownership of two aged 
African slaves long past their usefulness to be supported from 
the fields in whose tillage their life of bondage had been spent. 

Abram Anthony (the father of the writer) was born at the 
old Lapham and Anthony homestead at the junction of the 
North Adams and Savoy roads and was reared to agricultural 
pursuits. He entered early in life into manufacturing, first at 
Maple Grove with his brother John and then with his brother- 
in-law, Isaac U. Hoxie. drawing the cotton forty miles from 
Troy, N. Y., on wagons, the roads then leading over the high- 
est hills. 

In an old account book is found the following itemized ac- 
count : 

3rd mo. 21, 1828, bot. of Jacob Merit & Co., one bale New 
Orleans Cotton, 4^^c. 

5 bales upland 1492 lbs., 12c. 

The yarn was carried around to the neighboring houses and 
woven by hand loom into stripe and then returned to the fac- 
tory store and paid for in store pay. No money — wood, lumber 
and labor of all kinds were paid for in store pay, generally 
codfish, pork, rice, snuff, and West India molasses, and New 


England rum. The rum at this time was sold in all grocery 
stores and charged in with the groceries. Lumber and wood 
dealers on the mountain frequently gave orders on the store to 
pay their help. Some of the orders were often written on 
the smoothed side of a chip with a lead and read as follows : 

"Abin. Anthony &■ Co.: 

Please let Fisher Gennings have seventy-five cents worth of 
store goods and charge the same to my account. 

Joseph Edmonds. 

Early manufacturing under difficulties was not a success 
and in the year 1833 he commenced farming on the Walker 
place, one mile east of Adams village and spent most of his 
life there, rearing nine children. He did not confine himself 
entirely to agricultural pursuits ; owning large tracts of wood- 
land on the mountains, he built and run several saw mills, 
turning off large quantities of wood, lumber and bark. He 
was a very enterprising man, keeping gangs of laborers at work 
the year round on some enterprise, regardless of the cost or 
the outcome. He carried on more business with less money 
than any man of his time, except Joseph Edmonds, who, like 
himself, was a jack at all trades. Joe was a blacksmitli by 
trade and made everything imaginable that iron and wood 
would make and was always ready to trade for anything in his 
line, and my father wanted everything that was ever made, 
providing he could pay for it in his-«way, which was anything 
but money. Their business transactions read about as follows : 

"For value received I promise to pay Joseph Edmonds (or 
bearer) one hundred dollars, to be paid in my way. 

Abm. Anthony."' 

(And vice versa). 

"For value received I promise to pay Abm. Anthony, or 
bearer, one hundred dollars to be paid in my way. 

Joseph Edmonds.'" 

The accounts were generally kept on boards, paper, chips, 
marked down on the sawmill with red chalk or wherever they 
happened to be when the trade was made. About every five 
years they jumped accounts and started new. 

His last enterprise was the building of the water power 
known as the Renfrew Gingham, which he sold to William 
Pollock for $25,000. He lived to the ripe old age of 89 years 
and died suddenly of heart failure, sitting by the roadside A4{ji^/^f ■ 
leaning on his staff. My mother died Nov. 2, 18"

When the sun arose on that beautiful Sunday morning, 
Sept. I, 1867, and cast its brilliant rays on the verdant land- , 

scape of a valley that was overlooked by the city of Spring- 
field, Mo., a dramatic scene presented itself to viev^. "An 
emigrant train" so different from any that had dotted the val- 1 

ley, that it attracted attention and was the subject of remark, 
"They did not come from Sleepy Hollow, I reckon." All was 
hurry and bustle. Three young men were the actors in that 
drama, the camp fire burned briskly in preparation for break- 
fast, pails of water for bathing purposes, looking glasses for 
shaving. Sunday clothes being aired and dusted, and such 
hurrying to and fro was seldom witnessed by the native Mis- 
sourian, and when the three brothers, George, Edwin, and 
James Anthony walked down the aisle of the little city church, 
they were subjected to scrutiny, and at the close of the service 
they were the guests of the members, and when the sun went 
down in its western horizon, the citizens of Springfield were 
the guests of the three brothers. Locating there they became 
successful tobacco manufacturers and George has always re- 
mained in the same business. He has lived to see the church 
put forth a wonderful growth, himself a component part and 
worker, and as old age comes creeping on he finds himself one 
of the pillars of the church. Home, St. Louis St., Springfield. 
Mo., with all its pleasant surroundings.

1915. Ann Eliza Anthony ( 1630), young-est daughter of 
Humphrey and Hannah Lapham Anthony, was born 
at South Adams, Mass.. in the "Old Homestead," 
once the Lapham's, now known as the Anthony Home-.A,t, 7. /fa> 
stead. Married Albert F. Dickinson. July 17, 1836, 

son of Samuel and Jemina Harden Dickinson, b. June 
28, 1809, at Hawley, Mass. 

Albert F. received a common school education in his own 
county — taught school at Savoy, and Adams, Mass. After 
marriage became ao-ent for a N. Y. firm owning two cotton 
mills in Curtisville, Berkshire County. Mass. In 1840 visited 
Chicago, and went to see his brothers in Wisconsin. Not find- 
ing- a favorable place to locate in the West, he returned and 
purchased a grist mill in Curtisville. He was Justice of Peace. 
Selectman, and Postmaster, and in 1848 was elected a mem- 
ber of the Massachusetts State Legislature by the Democratic 
l^arty. In 1852 he moved to Alban}^ N. Y., and was engaged 
in the flour and commission business, and then to Buffalo. In 
Sept., 1855, removed to Chicago and became a prominent pro- 
duce dealer, sending East the largest shipment of grain made 
at that time. The family lived at 139 Wabash Ave., near 
Madison St. (the site being now a portion of the store of 
Schlesinger & Mayer). Ten years later they went to the West 
Side to live. He continued to deal in grain and seeds with 
office on East Kenzie St., until the great fire destroyed every- 
thing, and in 1872 his health failed and he retired.' His son 
Albert carried on the business but in his own name. 

He was one of the earliest members of the Chicago Board 
of Trade when the fee was only five dollars. At his death in 
1881, the Board of Trade passed the following resolution: 

''Resolved, That in the death of Albert F. Dickinson, this 
association has lost a member who in his long intercourse with 
us as a business man, always commanded our sincerest respect 
as a man of exceptional high sense of commercial honor, and 
whose integrity was never questioned in the many transactions 
which he engaged in during his business career in this city." 

Ann Eliza and Albert ¥. Dickinson helped to organized the 
first society of Friends in Chicago. They are buried in the 
family's lot at Rose Hill, Chicao-o. oKytM-p. I. A^<**^, 7 //^^, ^

1941. Humphrey Anthony, Jr. (1631), born Dec. J, 1818, 
youngest son of Humphrey and Hannah Lapham An- 
thony, who were numbered among the good old sub- 
stantial Quaker families of which Adams had a large 
and flourishing number. On the 3d of Oct., 1838, he 
married Elmira Maria Eddy, daughter of Russel and 
Maria Macumber Eddy of Easton, Washington Coun- 
ty, N. Y. lyi^a^uU-^ h. A/^- o-(i» , / d''i^ / 

After marriage he went to the common district school and 
learned to compute interest, and the first money he earned that 
could be spared was put at interest, and while he was a verv 
enterprising and sucessful farmer, much of his wealth and 
financial standing is largely due to his interest money. He 
was a man of strong body, strong will, and strong judgment, 
qualities which command success in any calling. He was a 
man of remarkable industry, perseverance and endurance. Nn 
man ever had a more industrious career than did Humphrev 
Anthony. His application was intense and continuous, and 
long after the need of such application had ceased and the in- 
firmity of years could no longer be denied, he continued his 
interest and activity in his business afifairs, finding his greatest 
comfort and satisfaction in the full exercise of the facultie^s 
with which he had been endowed. He died Mar. 12, 1896, in 
his 78th year, and was buried with his father's in the old 
Quaker burying ground in Adams, Mass., the last of the chil- 
dren of Humphrey and Hannah Lapham Anthony. (Aunt

He was a man above the ordinary stature and of command- 
ing presence and remarkably pleasant and agreeable in con- 
versation ; was unusually well educated for his day and having 
made surveying his profession, was chosen and held the office 
of town surveyor for the town of Providence most of his life. 
All the plats of Providence are founded on his survey. 

The first spinning jenny ever constructed in the United 
States was made for a company consisting of Daniel Anthony, 
Andrew Dexter, and Lewis Peck of Providence, R. I., Nov., 
1 786. It had 28 spindles and was made by Daniel Jackson, an 
ingenius coppersmith in Providence. A carder and spinning 
frame was added afterwards and set to work in the chamber 
of the Market House, manufacturing what was then known as 
jeans, fabric with linen warp and cotton filling. It was the 
pioneer enterprise in that line to which in the present dav the 
states owes much of its prosperity and importance.

As a tribute to the memory of John Gould Anthony, who 
labored so faithfully in laying the foundation of the Genealogy 
of the Anthony family upon which this genealogical history 
has been built, we append the following correspondence in his 
own amguage. After his demise the correspondence was kind- 
ly answered by his son-in-law, George Thompson Garrison, son 
of William Lloyd Garrison. 

Cambridgeport, Mass., June 7. 1877. 
Job K. Anthony, Adams, Mass. 

My Dear Sir — Last November my cousin, Henry Bowen 
Anthony, the senator from Rhode Island, urged me to under- 
take the genealogy of the Anthony family. I knew it would 
be a task of no common magnitude, but I have undertaken it. 
I have gone back to John Anthony, born in 1607, who came 
over in 1634, in the ship Hercules from Hempstead, England, 
and settled in Portsmouth, R. I. He left five children and of 
these I have more or less records. Most of my efforts have 
been to work out the descendants of William, the grandson of 
John. He had fourteen children of whom only ten married, 
and 1 take each of these children as the head of a branch and 
I bring each down separately. Of Job's branch, I have as 
yet scanty information and need your help. In order that you 

(2188 John Gould Anthony 


may do so. I send a statement of all that I now have. At mv 
age, now y2> years, I may not live to complete it. I have s<> 
arranged each item that some of you younger ones can readih- 
finish what I have begun. I now have great additions to the 
names in my book No. 963. 

I am very respectfully, 

John Gould Anthony, 

Cambridgeport, Aug. 21, 1877. 
William Anthony, Aurora, 111. 

Dear Cousin — Your letter accompanying genealogy I found 
on my table today after an absence of a fortnight, during 
which it came. I have been to Providence and Newport 
among the Anthony's and where, in fact, the true metroplis 
of the name is, where the first Anthony ( John, by name ) , 
landed in 1634. Of course I looked up all the genealogy I 
could find and added over a hundred names to the 1400 I had 
previously. At Newport I visited the daughter of Gilbert 
Stuart, the portrait painter, wdio is the third cousin of mine 
through my mother, while she is the fifth cousin through my 
father, — for I am twice an Anthony, double distilled. My 
great grandmother, Sarah Anthony, my mother's grandmother, 
being the grand-daughter of John Anthonie, who came over 
in 1634. She married Thomas Gould and my grandfather, 
John Gould, was her son. Gilbert Stuart's mother was her 
niece. I also saw Senator Anthony, my cousin, by whose 
persuasion I was originally induced to undertake the genealogy 
and who has promised to aid as far as he can. 

I feel under great obligations to you for the information 
you have given me as well as reference to other parties for in- 
formation. As for the direct information received, I prefer 
where I can to have each family tell its own story, but cannot 
always find a good historian. So I have to depend on much 
collateral information. 

If you ever do come to Boston we shall be glad to see you. 
We are only two miles out and now with the best wishes for 
all good things, I am. Cordially yours, 

John Gould Anthony. 

(One of the last letters he ever wrote.) 

Cambridgeport, Mass., Nov. id, 1877. 
William Anthony, Aurora, 111. 

Dear Sir — Your letters of the 6 inst., to my father-in-law. 
Mr. John Gould Anthony, have come to hand and contents 
noted. It is with sorrow that I inform you of his death on 
Oct. 16 last, after an illness of five or six weeks' duration, of 
cancer in the stomach. 


He was a man of a naturally happy and cheerful tempera- 
ment and made hosts of friends. 

For the past fourteen years he has been connected with the 
Zoological Museum at Cambridge, and intimately associated 
with the late Prof. Agassiz. He was authority on fresh and 
sea-water shells and had an extensive correspondence with 
scientific men in all parts of the world and will be greatly 
missed by them. Previous to his coming to Cambridge he 
was a resident of Cincinnati for over thirty years. 

His native place was Providence, R. I. It was at the re- 
quest of Senator Henry B. Anthony of Rhode Island, that he 
commenced the history of the Anthony family. Whoever 
succeeds him in the completion of the work will have no diffi- 
culty in understanding what he has done. A great many 
records sent him were in such shape that it was almost im- 
possible to decipher and arrange them in proper order. He 
seemed to have a special aptitude for the work and I am afraid 
his place cannot be easily filled. 

We have not heard from Senator Anthony in regard to what 
disposal we shall make of his manuscripts. He will probaably 
put them in the hands of some one to complete and publish. 
The letter you received was one of the last he ever wrote as 
he was sick at the time it was written. 

Yours truly, 
George Thompson Garrison.

My Dear Sir — The records of your branch of the Anthony 
family 'of Jan. 22d. have come to hand and will be placed on 
file with those previously sent. No definite arrangements to- 
ward completing the work has been made. I shall soon write 
Senator Anthonv myself asking him what he proposes to do 
about it. Congress has been in session most of the time for 
the last few months. I presume his time has been fully taken 
up and he has not had time to- attend to the matter. I have not 
the time myself nor am I competent to complete the work. In 
one so far advanced as this is, it would be a reproach, it seems 
to me, to the Anthony family not to have it completed and 
published. Yours respectfully, 

George T. Garrison. 

The following is quoted from a letter of John Gould An- 
thony Mar. 31, 1877: 

"By a letter received yesterday from England sent me by 
mv namesake there I learn that he knows of but two branches 


of Anthonys in all England, viz : one in Monmouthshire and 
the other in London. Originally we are of Italian parentage 
and judging from heraldic evidence, may be allied to the fam- 
ous family of Medica. There is some reason to believe that 
we came originally from Lombardy and were the money kings 
of former times but the money part of our inheritance has 
vanished among degenerate descendants." 

Again "I rejoice in believing that few families so numerous 
as ours can present so blameless a record.'' 

"This genealogy opens up a boundless task for we are 
legion, but I find so much pleasure coupled with it, that the 
task seems nothing in comparison and I am encouraged to go 
on, and if feeble health or increasing' years prevent its full ac- 
complishment. I shall at least have done something and leave 
less for my successor to add.

He was unmarried and died while in Africa as supercargo 
of an expedition fitted out at Providence by a company for 
the purpose of discovery and trade up the Niger River, then 
attracting much attention in consequence of the recent re- 
searches of the traveler. Lander. Joseph had made voyage to 


Africa previously while in the employ of John Andrews, as 
supercargo of his brig, Helen, Captain Daily, for trading pur- 
poses only, up and down the western coast. 

This previous experience, together with his love of adven- 
ture and some knowledge of natural history recommended him 
to this company as one peculiarly fitted for the special mana- 
ger of an expedition for which only general directions could be 
given, and much must be left to the wise discretion and prudent 
management or tact of the supercargo. 

The expedition consisted of a brig called and a small 

tender named the Dove, intended for use mainly in the shallow- 
portion of the river. This tender was transported to Africa 
on the deck of the brig. They had a prosperous voyage to 
Africa, and had proceeded up the river about 250 miles to a 
negro village called Brasstown, and while going ashore in a 
boat to visit the chief, Joseph was accidentally killed by the 
bursting of a musket. After, and in consequence of his death, 
the expedition was abandoned and the Dove was sold to Lan- 
der and the brisf returned home. 

2215. Edward Anthony (2167), son of Joseph and Mary 
Gould Anthony, married June 2, 1831, to Helen Maria 
Hastings Grieve, daughter of David and Margret Fal- 
ger Grieve of Providence. Soon after he moved to 
New York as a wholesale dry goods merchant but was 
subsequently president of Lamaz Insurance Co., when 
he died Aug. 25, 1868.

penetrated the wilderness and made settlements of Windsor, 
Hartford and Wethersfield, on the Connecticut River — he 
settling at Windsor, where he died Apr. 22, 1648, his wife. 
Rose, dying May 12, of the same year. John Porter was born 
A. D. 1590, in Kenilworth, Warwockshire, England, at W>ax- 
hall Abbey, the ancient seat of the family. E[e was descended 
in the twelfth generation from a Norman Knight in the train 
of Duke William of Normandy, at the Conquest, A. D. 1066, 
who bore the name of William de la Porte, as may be seen on 
the rolls of Battle Abbey — but which soon became transformed 
into "Porter." The Porter family have served their countrv 
prominently in judicial, military and governmental affairs, and 
two of the Porter blood have occupied the presidential chair — 
Grant and Cleveland. The Porter and Williams family have 
been closely interwoven by marriage through many genera- 
tions, so that the history of one is in no small degree a history 
of the other. 

Rev. Ebenezer Williams, son of Samuel Williams and Sarah 
May, was born Aug. 13, 1690, died Mar. 28, 1753. A grad- 
uate of Harvard. Ordained first minister of church of Pom-

Thomas Welles, governor of Connecticut). His son. Rev. 
Ebenezer (married Jerusha Porter, sister to- his brother Ches- 
ter's wife), was minister at Pomfre.t, Conn. He had been in 
the army in the French and Indian War of 1755. The news of 
the battle of Lexington, 1775, was received on Sunday morn- 
ing. He preached in the forenoon from the text, "There is a 
time for peace and there is a time for war." At the close of 
the service he laid aside his gown and displayed his old uniform 
with the remark that the time for war had come. Most of his 
young men joined him and they marched to Boston. He be- 
came a Colonel and served until his death, Aug. 22, 1780. 
Hannah Williams (daughter of Rev. Ebenezer and Penelope) 



married Gen. Jabez Huntington and whose grandson, J- W. 
Huntington was United States Senator. Samuel Wifliams, 
son of Rev. Samuel Williams and Theoda Parke, was born

beth Stratton, who came from England about 1638, was born 
in England, 1632, married Theoda Parke of Roxbury, Mass., 
died 1698. His daughter, Deborah Williams, married Joseph 
Warren and their grandson was Gen. Joseph Warren, killed 
at Bunker Hill. His son, Rev. John Williams (married Eun- 
ice Mather, daughter of Rev. Eleazar Mather), was the re- 
nowned "Redeemed Captive" of history. His wife, Eunice, 
was killed and he and their children taken into captivitv at 
the massacre of Deerfield, Mass., Feb. 29, 1704. Father and 
surviving children were eventually redeemed with the excep- 
tion of Eunice, a child of eight years. It is said she was sokl 
by the Indians to Catholic nuns in Quebec. One account states 
that she married an Indian chief, who took the name of Wil- 
liams, considering it an honor. Another account saj'-s that she 
married a French officer named De Roget — a half breed. Her 
great grandson. Rev. Eleazar Williams was the famous re- 
puted Lost Dauphin of France. His story in connection with 
the French throne is found in Hanson's "The Lost Prince," 
and in the noval "Lazarre," by Mary Hartwell Catherwood. 
In M. C. Crawford's "Romance of Old N. E. Churches." a 
cliapter "The Lost Prince Longmeadow," gives a resume of 
all the known facts. He was strikingly Bourbon in appear- 
ance and physiognomy. He became a missionary to the In- 
dians. Another of the children taken into captivity was 
Stephen, then about two years old. He was redeemed Apr. 
30, 1705, educated at Harvard and ordained first pastor of 
church at Longmeadow, Mass. His ministry covered a period 
or sixty-six 3^ears. He married Abigail Davenport. Served 
as chaplain through three campaigns, Louisberg, 1745 ; Crown 
Point, 1755; and Lake George, 1756. He left a diary which 
is still in existence and covers ten manuscript volumes. 

Robert Williams and his wife Elizabeth Stratton came to 
America from Norwich, in Norfolk, Eng., in 1637-38, and 
settled in Roxbury, Mass. He was made a freeman May 12, 
1638. His wife Elizabeth, died July 28, 1674. He married 
second, Margaret Fearing, widow of John Fearing of Hing- 
ham. He died Sept. i, 1693. He was descended from Sir 
David Williams. His five sons were all ministers. His grand- 
son, William Williams (son of Isaac, married first, daughter 
of Rev. Seaborn Cotton and Dorothea Bradstreet, second, 
Christiana, daue'hter of Rev. Solomon Stoddard), was a min- 


ister at Hatfield from 1665 until his death, 1685, (Harvard, 
1683). He preached a half century sermon from his ordina- 
tion, as also did his son, Solomon, at Lebanon, Conn. (54 
years married Mary, daughter of Col. Samuel Porter of Had- 
ley, Mass.), also his grandson, Eliphalet, who married Mary 
Williams, at East Hartford, Conn., and his great grandson, 
Solomon, at Northampton. William Williams, son of Rev. 
Solomon and Mary Porter, married Mary, daughter of Gov. 
Trumbull, and was one of the signers of the Declaration of 
Independence, a member of the Continental Congress in 1776 
and 1777; born in Lebanon, Apr. 2, 181 1. Graduated from 
Harvard 1751, and died Aug. 2, 181 1, aged 80 years. 

Col. Ephraim ^^'illiams founded Williams College. He was 
killed at the battle of Lake George. Elisha Williams was 
]iiesident of Yale. In 1825, one hundred and forty-seven of 
the Wiliams family had graduated from the colleges in New 
England, New Jersey and Union, N. Y. 

The name of Williams is very ancient and is of Welsh ex- 
traction. One of the Williams was Sir Robert Williams. He 
was ninth baronet of the house of Williams in Penrhyn, he 
was descended from Marchudal of Cyan, Lord of Abergelen 
in Denbighshire, one of the fifteen tribes of North Wales. 
Marchudal lived in the time of Roderic the Great. King of 
Briton in 849. He was descended from Brutus ist, King of 
Briton, eleven hundred years before Christ. One of the fam- 
ily, John Williams, lived under the reign of Edward the 
Fourth. Another, Morgan Ap Williams, married a sister of 
Thomas, Lord Cromwell, afterwards Earl of Essex. By ad- 
vice of Henry the Eighth, Williams assumed the name of 
Cromwell, and from him was descended Oliver Cromwell, 4th 
removed. From this family was descended Robert Wiliams, 
the Pilgrim.

in. Sarah A. Rhodes. 

He was senior senator of the United States and of Rhode 
Island, an able, tried, and trusted public servant, 69 years of 
age, twice governor and five times senator. His official career 
extended over twenty-five years, during- all this period not 
even a suspicion assailed his good name. As a journalist, also, 
his position was an influential one, his editorial connection with 
the Providence Journal beginning in 1838, and continuing 
down to the day of his death. 

Henry Bowen Anthony was born of Quaker parents at Cov- 
entry, R. I. His father was a manufacturer in moderate cir- 
cumstances, who was able to give his son a classical education. 
He graduated at Brown University in 1833, and intended to 
make law^ his profession. His legal studies were interrupted 
by ill health and he entered a mercantile house as clerk. Af- 
terwards he was sent by a manufacturing firm tO' Savannah,. 
Ga., to buy cotton. He spent some months in Georgia and 
while there wrote several letters which were published in the 
Providence Journal and attracted considerable attention. When 
he returned from the South the editor of the Journal had died 
and he was asked to take editorial charge of the paper tem- 
porarily and did so. His editorial work proved so satisfactory 
to its patrons and so agreeable to himself that he determined 
to make journalism his profession. Although after his election 


to the senate the active editorial management devolved mainly 
upon his assistants, he always controlled the policy of the jour- 
nal. The firm and outspoken attitude of the journal at the 
exciting- period of Dorr's Rebellion gave the young editor a 
place among the Whig leaders, and in 1849 he became the 
Whig candidate for governor. He was elected by a majority 
of 1,556 votes over all. In the succeeding year he was re- 
elected, the opposing receiving less than 1,000 votes. In 1831, 
he declined a third term. His wife having died and being 
without children, he visited Europe and spent some time in 
traveling. In 1858, he was elected to the United States Sen- 
ate as a union Republican to succeed Philip Allen, Democrat. 
Senator Anthony was successively re-elected in 1864, '70, '76, 
and 1882. While Senator Anthony's senatorial career was a 
long and useful one, it was comparatively uneventful. He 
made few long- speeches and in recent years he seldom ad- 
dressed the Senate at all. In May, i860, he defended Rhode 
Island and took Jefferson Davis to task in a speech on religious 
freedom. In 1861 he made a strong speech in favor of the 
proposition to make permanent the temporary transfer of the 
Naval Academy from Annapolis to Newport. Senator An- 
thony's contributions to funeral literature of the Globe and the 
Record were probably more numerous than any other man in 
either branch of Congress, save Thomas H. Benton. Among 
the eulogies delivered by him, were those called forth by the 
deaths of Stephen A. Douglas, Senators Thomson (of New 
Jersey), Colloiier, Fessenden, Sumner, Wilson, Buckingham, 
Morton and Chandler. The last eulogy delivered by Senator 
Anthony was upon his late colleague, General Burnside, who 
v;as one of his dearest and most intimate friends, and in later 
years an almost inseparable companion, during the session of 
Congress. When the Republicans obtained control of the Sen- 
ate and re-organized its committees. Senator Anthony was 
placed at the head of the joint committee on printing, a place 
which he filled uninterruptedly, with the exception of two 
years, from July, 1861, down to the 3d of Mar., 1883. Sen- 
ator Anthony was elected president pro tern of the Senate in 
Mar., 1863, and was re-elected in Mar., 1881, serving four 
years in that capacity, making a competent and popular pre- 
siding officer. The fact that at the close of the Forty-seventh 
Congress, he was not technically a senator, his term of service 
having expired alone prevented his being again elected presid- 
ing officer, which position is now occupied by Senator Ed- 
munds of Vermont. It was expected that he (Anthony), 
would have been selected for the office of president pro tern, 
and so have stood in the relation of a possible president of the 


United States. This was the expressed wish of Senator Ed- 
munds, but Senator Anthony had not taken the oath of office 
for his sixth successive term as senator. This objection was 
removed last winter, however, and on Jan. 13th, last, Mr. An- 
thony was again elected president pro tern, but he declined the 
office ori account of ill health. The course of Senator Anthony 
in the Senate was such as to win him friends on both sides of 
that body. He was a good parliamentarian, a fluent, sensible 
speaker, but not a ready debater, and his society was much 
sought after in Washington. Personally, Senator Anthony 
had a dignified bearing and commanding presence, with regular 
features, florid complexion and a profusion of iron grey hair. 
The death of Senator Anthony places it in the power of the 
Governor of Rhode Island to appoint a senator to fill the 
vacancy, unless he sees fit to call a special session of the Legis- 
lature to elect a successor to the dead statesman.

His parents were members of the religious society of Friends 
and brought up their children in the fear of the Lord. Their 
son, Thomas, early in life gave evidences of the influences of 
Divine Grace upon his heart. 

(2498) Thomas Anthony 

In his twenty-seventh year he was married to Anna Knowles, 
who was also a member of the society of Friends. They re- 
moved to North Kingston where he attended faithfully to the 
services of the church and in 181 7 felt called to the ministry. 

A careful follower of the Lord Jesus Christ and of sound 
judgment, he was gifted and qualified to assist efficiently in 
the management of the business of the society. 

Being of an amiable disposition he was loved and respected 
by all who knew him, and was often soug'ht after to sympathize 
with the bereaved and conduct. the funeral services of friends 
both in his society and those not connected with it. 


^ He became one of the most noted preachers of the society in 
New England. 

He was twice married and eight children were born to them. 
In the spring of 1853, having been left a widower the second 
time, he removed with his family, to East Greenwich, where he 
presided over the meeting until the end came May 4. 1854.

James H, Anthony was born in 1830, in Taunton, Alass. 
His parents moved to Venice, Cayuga Co., N. Y., in 1840. 
Here he attended school, Marvin Hughitt, the president of 
the C. & N. W. R. R. being a school mate. In 1844 his father 
moved to Adrian, Mich., where he bought a farm containing 
about one hundred acres wild, uncultivated land, which James 
helped to clear, w'orking on the farm during the summer, at- 
tending school in the winter until he was 17 years of age. 
After this he went to railroading, doing track w^ork, later he 
learned to fire engines. The old pioneer engine now in Chi- 
cago Museum, formerly owned by the C. N. & N. A\\ R. R. 
was the first engine he fired. It was then run on the old Erie 
and Kalamazoo road. It was afterward taken to Chicago, run 
by the Northwestern in Chicago. After years of usefulness, 
it w^as cleaned up and exhibited at the World's Fair in 1893. 
When Mr. Anthony visited the Fair, he saw and recognized 
his old engine and told his son Willis that he knew that engine 
better than the man who had it in charge. To clear all doubts, 
he told them they would find his initials stamped several 
times on the stake wedges, on the left back driving wheel. 
When the fresh paint was removed, to their astonishment the}- 
found his initials there. Its early name was "The Monroe." 
Mr. Anthony passed twenty-six consecutive years on the foot- 
board of a locomotive, passing altogether fifty-three years in 
railroad service. He is now retired as a pensioner of the C. 
& N. W. R. R. Co., receiving $300.00 per annum. No acci- 
dent ever occurred during the thirty years' service for which 
Mr. Anthony was censured, nor did the road e\-er lose a cent 
through his carelessness.

He was born in Taunton, Mass., and at the age of fifteen 
turned his back on Fatherland to look out for number one. 
He chose the safe and only way of travel, walking to Roches- 
ter, N. Y., a distance of miles and then back to Adams. 

making a walk of miles. He was very fortunate in mak- 
ing the acquaintance of Joseph Shove, a Quaker in faith and 
a tanner by trade, living at the base of Greylock Mountain, 
and Joseph was only too glad to find a boy like Job to learn 
the tanner's trade and when Uncle Joseph was laid away in 
the Quaker burying ground, Job continued the business until 
he had money enough. The old fashioned cold process of tan- 
ning was slow but sure, and Job had plenty of time for study 
and reflection. He was a student of no ordinary talent. He 
made the bible his text book and his guide all through life. 
and being well versed, he was asked a great many questions 
which were quickly answered by quotations from the Apostle 
Paul, not as man wanted it, but as the Apostle Paul taught it. 

He lived to a good ripe old age and passed away May 4. 
1888, aged 91 and Uncle Job, like Uncle Joseph was laid 
away in the Quaker burying ground, an honest, frugal, indus- 
trious Quaker as ever wore or tanned shoe leather in the 
town of Adams..

Job Kelly Anthony was born in Adams, of Quaker parent- 
age on the home farm at the base of Greylock Mountain. He 
was educated in the public schpols and in 1857 entered into 
mercantile life in the village proper and afterward at the 
Maple Grove, in which he continued for 35 years without in- 



terruptioii. He cast his first presidential vote for Lincoln and 
has remained a staunch and earnest Republican ever since. He 
represented the town of Adams in the Legislature in 1887-88. 
He is a thorough business man, a vice-president of the Grey- 
lock National Bank of Adams. He is a fitting example of 
modern ideas, careful, prudent and liberal. He recognizes 
the right of every man's choice in politics and faith, and is 
bound by broad ideas and firm purpose. He is now a member 
of the board of County Commissioners for Berkshire County. 
Hope all the relatives will make him a visit. You will find 
him a genial, homespun sort of a man with home, time, talent, 
monev. horses and carriages, and like his father Job, a great 
entertainer of the "Friends of Truth," called Quakers.

Harkness Anthonv, married Lydia Hathaway, Sept.

Edmund was the home boy and was raised to agricultural 
pursuits. He owns the home farm and the Shove property 
where he now resides, surrounded by his family. Living di- 
rectly opposite the old Quaker meeting house, he has a watch 
care over the old landmark as a birthright Quaker, cherishing 
the memories of the past, because father and mother worship- 
ped there.

In 1 81 3 the first cotton manufacturers were established on 
a solid basis, the Fall River Co., with a capital of $40,000.00. 

David Anthony (2943), (3054). one of the orgamzers was 
chosen treasurer 'and agent of the company. To his previous 
experience in mill work was due the construction of one of the 
orio-inal cotton mills of Fall River, and through his tar-sighted 



(2962) Luther Anthony 


and enlarg-ed appreciation of the future cloth manufacturing- 
was subsequently wrought what may be termed a "departure^' 
to which Fall River industry is believed by many persons to 
owe a large part of its present advancement. 

David Anthony was born in Somerset, Mass., 1786. At 
the age of fourteen he left the home farm to enter the service 
of a land holder and rich merchant who resided near by on the 
Somerset shore. Young Anthony's occupation was various 
for the first few years in Mr. Bower's service, but he was 
faithful and intelligent and soon rose from the duties of 
"chore boy" to a more responsible office as grain and salt 
measurer at the store, varied by an occasional rent collecting- 
expedition or a trip to Providence or Taunton on his master's 
business. In order to educate him in bookkeeping he was 
taken into the counting room and very soon became superin- 
tendent of the retail department of the store. Mr. Bowers 
became bankrupt in 1804 and the youthful manager was 
chosen to settle up the bankrupt estate. His education had 
been sadly neglected and he taught school applying himself 
diligently in order to teach the scholars in his charge. He 
then became traveling salesman for John P. Hellen, crockery 
dealer in Providence. Traveled from Somerset on horse back 
with a little boy mounted behind to return the horse, not choos- 
ing to take the horse all the way, he made the last half on foot. 
He and Dexter Wheeler ran a small yarn mill at Reheboth 
as early as 1807. The Fall River mill of 181 3 was erected at 
the head of the third fall from tide water. He retired from 
business in 1839, having- won the success which his vast re- 
sources of judgment and energy are sure to achieve. 

When seventy years old, in a brief review of his career, he 
wrote the following words of council to young men : "Happi- 
ness and success in a business life are promoted by correct 
habits, systematic living, and great promptness in fulfilling 
engagements.'' He was socially known as Deacon Anthony, 
he holding that office in the first Congregational Church his 
life time. He was president of the Fall River bank for forty 
years. He was three times married, his last wife, whom he 
survived but four years, being the daughter of Thomas Bor- 
den. Of his seven sons, two are still residents of Fall River 
and another, John B. Anthony, of Providence, at the head of 
Providence Tool Co. He died July 6, 1867, closing a long, 
useful, and honorable career.

BooNTON, Morris Co., N. J., June. 
Dear Sir and Relative: — I am much pleased to know that 
some one of the Anthony family have seen their way to do this 
good work. Mv great-grandfather, David Anthony. I know- 
but very little of. I had heard my grandfather, when I was a 


boy, speak about him — Grandfather Israel. I had seen him 
several times, and had heard more about him up to the time I 
left home, some 53 years ago. I came here to Boonton, and 
this has been my home. I have a likeness of my Grandfather 
Israel, as well as of my father and mother. I also have the 
Docket Book of trials of Grandfather Israel. In one I find 
the family records and also the records of the different par- 
ties he had joined together in marriag"e, some eighty-five 
couples. He had married quite a number of the Anthony 
family, including some of his own children. He began as Jus- 
tice of Peace in Somerset, Bristol Co., Mass., Dec. 25, 1808. 
His last case was Sept. 29, 1849, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon 
at Fall River, Mass. My father, Luther, was commissioned a 
Justice of Peace, but he did not hold court. My brother Ben- 
jamin was commissioned Justice of Peace in Boston; he also 
held office in the city government as councilman and as an 
alderman. He was a machinist by trade, and had a shop of 
his own, and at his death his son has continued the business. 
My father, Luther, was a machinist by trade, and worked 
in Boston and Roxbur}^ many 3'ears in that part known as 
the mill dam. There he helped build the first locomotive eii- 
gine made and run in the New England States, if not in the 
country. It was at the time the Boston and Worcester Rail- 
road was being built. The engines were named after the 
planets. I can remember seeing them drawn from the shops 
and placed on the tracks. He was engineer on that road for 
several years, and the latter part of his life was spent among 
the din and clamor and bang of the ponderous locomotive ma- 
chinery'. He gave up his business to his son, Benjamin, and 
continued to reside in Taunton, where he died Feb. 20, 1881, 
an honest, upright man. 


I am hy trade a machinist, taught by my father. My first 
work was in the cut nail factory on the mill dam where the 
locomotives were made. I liked the nail business the best, so 
fifty-three years ago I came to the town of Boonton, N. J., 
where they had just commenced to make rails. Here I built 
my home, and here I intend to remain until this busy life is 

I was second lieutenant Co. G, 27th New Jersey Volun- 
teers. For twelve years I have been Justice of Peace in and 
for the county of Morris, New Jersey, so that the office has 
been filled by grandfather, father and son. Am a member 
of the great Masonic brotherhood; joined in 1859. I am a 


descendant of Quakers, and do not part my hair in the mid- 
dle. In 1887 I went to Glascow, Scotland, to start nail ma- 
chines for David Bennie and son. In 1878 I also made a 
visit to the Paris Exposition, and returned to my Jersey home 
in the fall of 1878 more satisfied with America than ever.

The following is all that it has been possible to gather of 
the Nova Scotia branch of the Anthony family : 

John Anthony (3190), in the vital records of Rhode Island, 
'Tiverton Intentions and Marriages," we find John and Ruth 
Allen, both of Dartmouth, June 22, 1754. The line of con- 
nection back to John, the emigrant, I cannot establish, but 
submit the following pages for the benefit of those interested. 
3190. John Anthony married Ruth Allen, daughter of In- 
crease Allen, June 22, 1754, in Rhode Island, and 
moved to Nova Scotia. 

They had some children in Rhode Island that they did not 
take with them; supposed to have nine children somewhere, 
left with relatives. He had six children born in Nova Scotia. 
Abraham Anthony went to Nova Scotia with John Anthony 
and remained one year, and then returned to Rhode Island. 

John Anthony and his wife and others came to Nova Scotia 
in May, 1760. He was one of the first settlers. Richard, son 
of John, cut his farm out of a solid forest. Andrew Anthony, 
son of Richard, has been a prominent ship-l)uilder in Selma 
for twenty years, under the firm name. Brown &' Anthony, 
Ship Builders. He had no knowledge of ship l^uilding- until 
he was twenty years old, but was a master mechanic at 
twenty-six, and has always been considered a man of rare me- 
chanical ability. Andrew's family of eight boys and four 
girls, all of them alive and healthy, are all teetotalers, with the 
exception of -one or two ; they do not even taste of sweet cider 
nor use tobacco. These traits are hereditary. Andrew's older 
brother, John, a sea captain, was always spoken of as being 
one of the best sailors among the many hundreds who sail 
from our bay. He went to California. There his children all 
married, and are comfortably situated. Both families are li\'- 
ing honest, upright lives, and I know that the home training 
has been to this end.

J. A. Anthony says: "I was born Apr. 5, 1843, i" the 
county of Hants, six miles below the town of Windsor, on a 
farm that lay along the banks of the river Avon. When I was 
three weeks old I was taken to the bedside of my dying 
grandfather, and there he gave me his name and the name of 
his brother, Archibald, deceased at the age of sixteen. 

I made a choice of a seafaring life for about ten years. The 
spring of 1868 I took passage from New York to San Fran- 
cisco by the Pacific Mail Line, and landed here on the twenty- 
third day of April, 1868. Have been engaged in several dif- 
ferent pursuits. At the present time I am preaching the gos- 
pel of Jesus Christ, being an elder in his church.

Colonel D. R. Anthony, editor of The Times, died Saturday- 
morning, November 12, 1904, at 12:45 o'clock at his home, No. 
417 North Esplanade. His last moments were painless and 
peaceful. Colonel Anthony was 80 years of age, his last birthday 
being August 22. The funeral will probably be held Monday 

Colonel Anthony's death was due to weakened heart action. 
He had been ill for several months, but seriously so for the 
past two months. He suffered one very severe attack from which 
it was thought he could not recover, but his remarkable vitality 
brought him through and he again came to the office and directed 
affairs, but after a few days he again became ill and from that 
time to his death had not been able to leave his home. 

For several days Colonel Anthony's life was despaired of 
and the attending physician gave up all hope, but the vitality of 
the patient again asserted itself and he seemed to be on the road 
to recovery, but his inability to recuperate or gather strength 
was noted, and the family fully realized that the end was near. 
For the past week his life had been hanging by a slender thread 
and the patient was unconscious much of the time. Friday 
evening it was known that the end was near. The respiration of 
the patient became more rapid, and he passed quietly away in 
the ultimate sleep. 



Daniel Read Anthony was born at South Adams, Massachu- 
setts, on the 22d of August, 1824. His parents were Daniel and 
Lucy Anthony. His father belonged to the Society of Friends, 
or Quakers; he was a direct descendant of John Anthony, who 
emigrated to this country from Wales, landing at Dartmouth, 
Mass., in 1646. He was a manufacturer, and during the greater 
part of his life was engaged in the manufacture of cotton and 
woolen goods. He was a man of strong physical constitution, 
and much above the average in mental power, with quick per- 
ception, sound judgment, resolute will, and remarkable force of 
character — traits which have been inherited in a greater or less 
degree by all of his descendants. He died at Rochester, N. Y., 




1862, at the age of 69. The family consisted of the parents, 
two boy's and five girls — among the latter Susan B., now known 
to the world as the leader of the woman suffrage movement in 
the United States, who has devoted her life and more than one 
fortune to the cause of the moral, social and political elevation of 
the women of America. 

The grand parents of Daniel R. were Humphrey Anthony, 
and Daniel Read, both of South Adams, Mass. Humphrey An- 
thony was a Quaker, a large landholder and dairyman fariner, 
and lived to the advanced age of 93 years. 

Daniel Read was not a member, but a constant attendant of 
the Baptist church. He was in the army of the Revolution, and 
served in the division which, under Arnold, made the wonderful 
march through the New England States to Quebec, in midwin- 
ter, suffering untold hardships. 

At the time Gen. Burgoyne made the raid upon Bennington, 
Vt,, Gen. Stark sent a messenger to notify the people and call 
for aid. The messenger arrived in South Adams on Sunday, 
during church service, rode up to the Baptist church and made 
known the object of his visit ; the minister stopped in the middle 
of his sermon and called upon all who would volunteer to defend 
their country to form in line in the aisles of the church. 

Daniel Read volunteered, went to Bennington, fought and 
helped defeat the proud and arrogant invader. 
He died at the age of 83 years. 

Daniel R. Anthony, the subject of this sketch, was educated 
in a common school at Battenville, Washington county. New 
York, till about thirteen years of age, when he went to the 
Academy at Union Village, New York, where he remained only 
about six months, and then went to work for his father — for a 
time in the cotton mill, then for a while as clerk in the store, and 
afterward for several years in the flour mill. It should be re- 
membered that a cotton manufacturing establishment, such as 
that here referred to as conducted by the firm of Anthony, Mc- 
Lean & Co., consisted of the cotton mill proper, a store, flouring 
mill, saw mill, machine shop, blacksmith shop, and all the other 
necessary establishments that go to make up a New England 
manufacturing village. At the age of twenty-three, he removed 
to Rocester, New York, and being out of employment, took a 
school in a country district and taught for two winters, for want 
of more congenial employment. After this he went into the in- 
surance business, at which he continued till the beginning of the 
war of the rebellion. 

In July, 1854, he visited Kansas with the first colony sent 
out by the New England Emigrant Aid Society, under command 


of the venerable Eli Thayer. During that visit to Kansas he 
helped to found the city of Lawrence,, there being at that time 
but one small house on the site where that city now stands. In 
the fall of the same year he returned to Rochester, where he re- 
mained in business as previously stated, till June, 1857, when 
he returned to Kansas, and located permanently at Leavenworth 
— which town had, at that time, begun to attract public attention 
— and has continued to be a resident of that city ever since. 

At the breaking out of the rebellion,, in 1861, he joined the 
army of the Union and became Lieutenant-Colonel of the First 
Kansas Cavalry, afterward known as the Seventh Kansas vol- 
unteers. The only battle in which he distinguished himself was 
that of the Little Blue, in November, 1861, in which he com- 
manded and won a victory over a force of guerillas of four 
times his number. 

In June, 1862, Lieut.-Col. Anthony was in command of 
Brig.-Gen. Robt. B. Mitchell's Brigade, with headquarters at 
Camp Etheridge, Tennessee. At that time the negro question 
was giving the soldiers and officers of the Union Army much 
trouble. As the lines advanced, the slaves deserted the planta- 
tions, and made their way to freedom within the Union lines, 
but owing to the pro-slavery sentiment, or the desire to suppress 
the rebellion without interefering with slavery, which prevailed 
to a very great extent in the minds of many of the higher officers 
in the Union army, it was regarded by them as a sacred duty to 
return runaway slaves to their masters, and while our armies 
might confiscate ■ any other kind of property with impunity, a 
slave was sacred — was exempt from the ordinary laws of war — 
and the troups were required to drive all such out of the camps, 
and afford every practicable assistance in their power to masters 
in search of their absconding chattels. While this feeling existed, 
not only among a large number of army officers, but with a cer- 
tain portion of the people of the North, and while the war was 
still being thus prosecuted, and slavery was being protected, the 
following order was issued by Lieut.-Col. Anthony to the bri- 
gade under his command. 

"Headquarters Mitchell's Brigade, Advance Column, First 
Brigade, First Division General Army of the Mississippi; Camp 
Etheridge, Tennessee, June i8th, 1862. 

(General Order No. 26.) 

"i. The imprudence and impertinence of the open aud armed 
rebels, traitors, secessionists, and southern rights men, of this 
section of the State of Tennessee, in arrogantly demanding the 
right to search our camp for fugutive slaves, has become a nuis- 
ance, and will no longer be tolerated. 


"Officers will see that this class of men, who visit our camp 
for this purpose, are excluded from our lines. 

"2. Should any such person be found within our lines they 
will be arrested and sent to headquarters. 

"3. Any officer or soldier of this command who shall arrest 
and deliver to his master a fugutive slave, shall be summarily 
and severely punished, according to the laws relative to such 

"4. The strong Union sentiment in this section is most grat- 
ifying, and all officers and soldiers in their intercourse with the 
loyal and those favorably disposed, are requested to act in their 
usual kind and courteous manner, and protect them to the fullest 

"By order of D. R. Anthony. Lieutenant Colonel, Seventh 
Kansas Volunteers, commanding. 

"Captain and Assistant Adjutant General." 

General Mitchell returned in a few days to headquarters, 
and resumed command of the brigade. He was greatly excited 
and indignant because of the issuing of the order, but on account 
of the evident public sentiment among the masses of the people 
at home, as well as the rank and file of the army, in favor of it, 
he didn't like to take the responsibility of countermanding it. 
He summoned Col. Anthony before him when the following 
conversation ensued : 

Gen. M. — "Col. Anthony, you will at once countermand 
your order. No. 26." 

Col. A. — "As a subordinate officer it is my duty to obey your 
orders but you will remember. General, that Order No. 26 is a 
brigade order, and I am not now in command of the brigade. 
Of course you are aware the Lieutenant-Colonel of a regiment 
cannot countermand a brigade order?" 

Gen. M. — "Oh, that need not stand in the way. Col. An- 
thony; I can put you in command long enough for that." 

Col. A. — "Do you put me in command of the brigade?" 

Gen. M.— "Yes, sir." 

Col. A. — "You say. Gen. Mitchell, I am now commanding 
officer of this brigade?" 

Gen. M. — "Yes, sir, you are in command." 

Col. A. — "Then, sir, as commanding officer of this brigade 
I am not subject to your orders; and as to your request that 
order No. 26 be countermanded. I respectfully decline to grant 
it. Brigade order No. 26 shall not be countermanded while I 
remain in command !" 

The order was never countermanded. 


Col. Anthony continued to carry out the letter and spirit 
of his order, with his own command, and refused to allow his 
troops to be used for chasing and catching runaway slaves. In 
no instance did a colored man or woman fleeing from slavery 
ever fail to find protection within his lines, and in no single in- 
stance was any such person ever delivered up to be returned to 
bondage, although demands were repeatedly made for them by 
their former masters, who came with the authority of "General 
Orders" from the department commander, and armed with spec- 
ial and positive orders from the brigade commander. He declared 
that his soldiers were not there as slave-catchers, nor as police to 
guard the property of the country's enemies, and while he re- 
mained in command not a man of his regiment ever engaged in 
such pursuits. For this refusal to surrender colored refugees and 
guard rebel property. Col. Anthony was arrested by order of 
Gen. Mitchell, upon the charge of insubordination. 

Col. Anthony's order, the reader will readily perceive, was 
in direct contravention of Gen. Halleck's celebrated "Order No. 
3," and of course created no small stir. The matter immediate- 
ly became the subject of comment in the press and on the stump, 
all over the country, and the Senate of the United States, taking 
cognizance of it, passed the following resolution : 

Resolved, That the President of the United States be di- 
rected to communicate to the Senate any information he may 
have as to the reasons for the arrest of Lieutenant-Colonel D. R. 
Anthony, of the Seventh Kansas Regiment, if, in his opinion, 
such information can be given without injury to the public 

Gen. Halleck restored Col. Anthony to active duty within 
sixty days after his arrest, being fully satisfied public sentiment 
sustained his (Anthony's) course. Col. Anthony resigned, after 
having been in the military service only a little more than a year. 

In April, 1861, he was appointed postmaster at Leavenworth 
by President Lincoln, which office he held for about five years, 
when he was removed for refusing to support President John- 
son's "policy." 

In March, 1863, he was nominated by the Republicans of 
Leavenworth as their candidate for Mayor, and was elected by 
a large majority. Up to that time. Southern sympathizers, rebel 
desperadoes, and gangs of lawless characters, had kept the loyal 
people of Leavenworth in a constant state of terror; acts of 
violence to the persons of law-abiding citizens were the rule 
rather than the exception, and murders were almost of daily oc- 
curence. But Mayor Anthony determined to preserve order, and 
to that end adopted a very positive and vigorous policy, in deal- 


in^ with the lawless element, and in this course had the active 
support and co-operation of all the better class of citizens — many 
of whom favored a policy even more radical than that adopted by 
the Mayor and were disposed to resort to summary measures. 
One notable instance, in particular, is worthy of record : Near 
the North line of the city, on the West, stood several large build- 
ings, occupied by disreputable women, and these houses were 
used as "headquarters" and places of general rendezvous by the 
most hardened and desperate characters that infested the coun- 
try. On the night of the 22nd of April, 1863, a meeting com- 
posed of a large number of the best citizens of the town was held, 
at which it was resolved that these nuisances should be abated at 
once. The company then proceeded to the vicinity of the houses 
referred to, headed by several of the most prominent and re- 
spectable citizens of the town, and giving the inmates notice to 
vacate at once, set fire to the houses, one after another, and stood 
guard over the premises till the whole were destroyed. The city 
papers of that date, in referring to the affair, all spoke of it ap- 
provingly. This was a desperate remedy, but it was thought to 
be the only one that would reach the case, and its effect was al- 
most instantaneous. The determination thus evinced by the peo- 
ple to rid the city of thieves and desperadoes, taken in connec- 
tion with the resolute and vigorous policy adopted by the Mayor 
resulted in putting an end to the anarchy and mob law that had 
held sway in Leavenwortli for three years. 

Some of the results of Mayor Anthony's vigorous policy are 
shiown in the following letter which appeared in the Topeka 
Tribune , dated April 19, — only a little more than a month after 
the inauguration of the new administration. The writer says : 

"A transition from a stormy day to clear and bright sun- 
light is not more pleasant than that which Leavenworth has ex- 
perienced in its entrance upon the Anthony administration. For- 
merly rogues dwelt in the most luxurious profusion ; now they 
seek a more congenial clime; formerly, dirty streets seemed one 
of our permanent institutions ; now a filthy spot is an exception, 
while cleanliness is the rule; formerly law seemed an inoperative 
something, it is a strong engine of power, administering 
justice speedily." 

His administration — both in the execution of the laws, and 
the prosecution of all works of public improvement — was char- 
acterized by the same indomitable energy which Mr. Anthony 
brought to bear upon everything he undertakes. During his term 
of office many of the most valuable and permanent improvements 
were made. During this period Leavenworth made marvelous 
growth, not only in material development, but in population. 


One of the most exciting events that occured during this 
administration — or indeed, at any other time in the history of 
Leavenworth — was the arrest of Mayor Anthony by Brig. Gen. 
Thomas Ewing, Jr., then commanding the District of the Bor- 
der, with headquarters at Kansas City. Gen. Ewing had de- 
clared martial law in the district. Some of his detectives, in 
Leavenworth, had seized some horses, belonging to a colored 
man named Reed, claiming that they had been stolen from par- 
ties in Missouri. Mayor Anthony denied the right of the mili- 
tary to interfere where the civil authority was strong enough to 
enforce the law, directed his police to recover the horses, which 
they did. Several letters passed between the Mayor and the 
General in relation to the afifair, in which Mayor x\nthony 
showed very clearly that his course as in accordance with the 
laws of the country and the military orders of the department 
commander, which stated explicitly that the declaration of mar- 
tial law did not suspend the functions of the civil government of 
the loyal States, and declared it to be "the duty of all officers of 
such loyal States to execute the State laws, as far as possible, in 
the same manner as if no United States troops were present." 
and further declared distinctly that it was "the duty of the mili- 
tary authorities of the United States to abstain from interference 
with the civil authorities, and to protect them from violence, if 
need be, in the discharge of their duties," and that "any resist- 
ance to, or interference with the civil authories, while in the dis- 
charge of their legitimate duties, by military officers or soldiers, 
is a crime which merits the severest punishment." 

There was no doubt in the mind of anybody as to the loyal- 
ty of the city of Leavenworth, and with a police force abundant- 
ly able to enforce the law, the Mayor relied upon the orders of 
the Commanding General of the Department to protect him in re- 
fusing to be interfered with in the discharge of his duties by the 
agents of a subordinate officer. Notwithstanding the fact that 
Mayor Anthony quoted the law, and the orders of the Depart- 
ment Commander, in vindication of his course, he was arrested 
by General Ewing for "interferring with the military authorities 
of the United States, in the discharge of their duties." 

The arrest created intense excitement throughout the city, 
and an account of it is thus given in the Daily Conservative, of 
September 8, 1863 : 

"Mayor Anthony was yesterday afternoon arrested by one 
of Gen. Ewing's detectives in a most indignant and brutal man- 
ner. While performing his official duties in his office about three 
o'clock, the officer entered the Mayor's office, seized Anthony 



rudely by the arms, and said, "I want you, sir !" Mayor Anth- 
ony replied, "What do you want?" The officer replied, "I arrest 
you — go with me!" Anthony asked, "By what authority do you 
arrest me?" The officer answered, "By God, I am authority" — 
at the same time dragging him from the door and ordering his 
men to "throw" him into the buggy, some of whom were dis- 
guised with coverings over their faces. The order was obeyed, 
and he was rudely seized and thrown into the carriage, his feet 
hanging over the side. The officer mounted his horse and or- 
dered the driver to drive on, and threatened to blow Anthony's 
brains out if he offered the least resistance. They started for 
Gen. Ewing's headquarters at Kansas City. During the whole 
of this war there has been comparatively few arrests, in the loyal 
States, even of those who were the public opponents of the Gov- 
ernment, and the abettors of treason ; their disloyal acts had been 
overlooked in most instances because of the strong desire of the 
military authorities to jealously guard the sacred rights of per- 
sonal liberty. 

"No one will say that Anthony is disloyal, but on the con- 
trary a most zealous and earnest patriot, the Mayor of one of the 
most loyal cities in the Union, devoting his whole time and means 
to guard the city of Leavenworth against such a fate as has be- 
fallen Lawrence. * * * The excitement here is intense ; the 
people seem paralyzed with astonishment, and can hardly realize 
the facts. Meetings were held in various parts of the city last 
evening, and then united in a vast mass meeting expressed their 
indignation at this personal and most dastardly act." 

In the same paper occurs the following account of the mass 
meeting above referred to: 

"The whole city was a blaze of excitement after the arrest of 
Mayor Anthony, and a little after dark the people assembled on 
the corner of Fifth and Shawnee, and organized a meeting by 
calling H. W. Ide to the chair. Col. E. N. 6. Clough was elected 
secretary. The following resolutions were then offered, and 
passed unanimously amid the wildest excitement : 

"Resolved, That we, the people of Leavenworth, in mass 
meeting assembled, call upon the President of the United States 
to remove the General or Generals who caused the outrages late- 
ly committeed upon the people of Leavenworth, and cluminating 
in the arrest of Mayor Anthony of said city, when it is univer- 
sally known that said city is one of the most loyal in the Union, 
and said Mayor one of the most loyal men of said city. 

"Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed to tele- 
graph to the President; if that produce no favorable result, then 
they write the President and lav before him a statement of the 


outrages committed upon the people of Kansas, culminating in 
the arrest of the Mayor of this city." 

After being held as a prisoner for a few hours, Mayor An- 
thony was released unconditionally and immediately returned 
home, arriving the next evening, having been away but a little 
more than twenty-four hours. His return was characterized by 
the most excited and enthusiastic demonstration that Leaven- 
worth ever witnessed. The following account of his return, and 
the speech made by Mayor Anthony in response to the reception 
given him by the people is taken from the Daily Bulletin, of the 
next day — September 9, 1863: 

"At eight o'clock last evening the whole city assembled at 
the market house to receive Mayor Anthony, who had tele- 
graphed from Kansas City that he would be in the city at that 
hour. The Mayor's office and city hall were beautifully illumin- 
ated, and the largest gathering of citizens ever witnessed on any 
occasion, were present. The arrival of the Mayor was announced 
by a salute from the city battery. A band of music was in at- 
tendance, and amid its martial strains, the roar of cannon and 
the shouts of the people, the Mayor was escorted to the speaker's 

The following extracts from Mayor Anthony's speech on 
the occasion are worthy of a place here, as portions of the history 
of that time. He said : 

"Men of Leavenworth: — Yesterday I was brutally arrested 
and marched out of town with two thieves at my side, followed 
by a company of soldiers with, cocked revolvers pointed at my 
back. To-night I return to Leavenworth, my home, escorted by 
a committee of ten of your truest and best men, sent by you to 
Kansas City, to demand my release and the revocation of the 
order declaring martial law. * * * Yesterday I marched 
between two thieves. To-day their heads are in the dust. Yes- 
terday martial law reigned in Leavenworth. To-day it is scattered 
to the four winds of heaven, yesterday we were despondent. To- 
day we are triumphant. 

"The thieves who had me in arrest left in a hurry. They 
took me to Kansas City — a distance of thirty-five miles — in four 
and three-quarter hours. The first fifteen miles were made in an 
hour and three quarters. Had Gen. Ewing made the same haste 
when he left here in pursuit of Quantrell, with his enemy in 
front, that his detectives and soldiers made with an imaginary 
foe in the rear, Quantrell would not have escaped from the 
butchery at Lawrence with impunity. At every hill-top men 
were stationed to watch for parties in pursuit. There was a 
strong guard posted on the south side of the Kansas river, at the 


Wyandotte ferry, with orders from Gen. Ewing to allow no one 
to pass after dark. When the boat landed, the picket said : "Who 
are you?" I replied, "The Lord Mayor of Leavenworth, with 
his body guard of twenty-four men on a visit of ceremony to 
Gen. Ewing at Kansas City. Can we pass?" The picket said, 
"I guess so," and we passed on. Not a word was said by the 
detectives, or the officer in command of the company." 

The order declaring martial law in Leavenworth having 
been countermanded simultaneously with Mayor Anthony's ar- 
rest, the remainder of his administration was characterized by the 
strict enforcement of civil law, and by the good order and gen- 
eral prosperity of the city. 

On the 2 1 St of January, 1864, Mr. Anthony was married 
at Edgartown, Mass., to Miss Annie E. Osborn. Her father 
was one of the leading whaling merchants of Massachusetts, and 
one of his ships, the Ocniulgcc, commanded by his son Abram 
Osborn, was the first ship captured and burned by the rebel cap- 
tain, Semmes. Capt. Osborn, at an earlier date was cast away 
on the Alaska coast, and remained for six months with the Es- 

In April, 1864, Mayor Anthony was a candidate for re-elec- 
tion, and although it was well known that a very large majority 
of the law-abiding people of the city favored his election, he was 
defeated through force and fraud by a mob of "Reg Legs." 

He was again a candidate, in the following year, and was de- 
feated by Thomas Carney, by a very small majority. 

In the snring of 1866, he was removed from the Leaven- 
worth post office for refusing to support President Johnson's re- 
construction policy — having held the office a little over five years. 
In 1868 he was again candidate for Mayor of Leavenworth, 
and was defeated by C. R. Morehead, Jr. 

He was President of the Republican State Convention this 
year. He was also chosen by the Republicans of the State to be 
Presidential elector, and had the honor of casting one of the 
three votes of Kansas for Gen. Grant. 

In 1870 he was again the candidate of the Republican party 
for Mayor, and was defeated by Hon. John A. Halderman by a 
majority of forty-seven votes, as returned by the judges of the 
election, though it was generally believed at that time by the Re- 
. publicans of the city that Mr. Anthony had received a majority 
of the votes cast. In two of the wards of the city the votes of all 
colored men — to the number of about four hundred — were re- 
jected, and one of the judges in one of these wards has since ad- 
mitted that the returns were tampered with, and that such 


changes were made in the figTires, as to show about one hundred 
and fifty votes less for Anthony than were actuahy cast. 

In 1870 he was elected to the City Council from the First 
ward by a vote of nearly four to one. 

During- this year, and the year following, he was chairman 
of the Republican State Central Committee. 

He was a member of every Republican State Convention 
ever held in Kansas up to the time the StLte was divided into 
Congressional districts, when he preferred to be a member of 
the Congressional Convention of his district, which assembled 
simultaneously with the State Convention. 

In 1 87 1 he was re-elected to the Council from the First 

In ths year occurred the celebrated "railroad war" in Leav- 
enworth, in which Col. Anthony took a very conspicuous part. 
The city had granted the right of way to the Leavenworth, At- 
chison & Northwestern railroad over certain streets of the citv, 
in consideration of certain work to be performed by the railroad 
company — namely, the building of a union depot, and the grad- 
ing, straightening and riprapping of the levee from Choctaw 
street to Oak street. The ordinance granting such right of way 
provided that in case of the failure of the railroad company to 
perform its part of the contract, the riglTjt of way might be re- 
voked by the city, and the road be prevented from running with- 
in the city limits. 

The Missouri Pacific railroad company leased the road from 
the Leavenworth, Atchison & Northwestern company, and pro- 
ceeded to operate it, but the latter company failed to comply with 
the terms of its contract with the city, although the time within 
which said work was to be done was twice extended by the city, 
and the road had, in the meantime, recognized the right of the 
city to grant the right of way under such conditions, by com- 
mencing, and completing a very small portion of the work 
which had been specified in the contract. When the time ex- 
pired within which the work was to be done — after being, as 
above stated, twice extended by the city — the council declared 
offtcially that the road had violated its contract and Col. Anth- 
ony, as chairman of a special railroad committee, in order to 
bring the question to a speedy issue in the courts, seized the road, 
within the city limits, and tore up a section of the track, upon the 
levee. The railroad company applied to the United States Cir- 
cuit Court, Judge Dillon, for a writ of injunctio'^ to restrain the 
city from interfering with the running of trains. The question 
was argued before the court by eminent counsel, and after a full 
hearing, the court refused to grant the writ prayed for by tlie 



company, but granted a temporary injunction restraining the 
city from immediate intereference and allowing the road a rea- 
sonable time in which to comply with its contract, thus virtually 
sustaining the course of the city in compelling the road to com- 
ply with the terms of its contract. The difticulty was afterwards 
arranged by the acceptancy of what was known as the "Edgerton 
compromise" — an agreement on the part of the railroad company 
to build a union depot in Leavenworth, and make certain im- 
provements on the levee — less than originally required — in con- 
sideration of which the city consented that the trains of the com- 
pany might be run through the city. 

In the spring of 1872 Col. Anthony was elected Mayor of 
the city by a very handsome majority for the term of two years. 
In the fall of the same year he was a candidate for the Legis- 
lature in the First ward, and was defeated. 

In November, 1873, he was again a candidate for the Leg- 
islature in the First ward, and was elected by a very large ma- 

April 3d, 1874, he was appointed by President Grant, to be 
Postmaster at Leavenworth. In this capacity he brought to bear 
the thorough business training and lijabits, for which he was 
noted, an dthe affairs of his office were conducted in a systematic 
and business-like manner, giving entire satisfaction to the post 
office department and the people having business with the office. 
About the first of January, 1876, in response to complaints filed 
by certain personal enemies, the Postmaster-General detailed a 
special agent of the Department to make an examination of the 
affairs of the Leavenworth office, who, after a patient and thor- 
ough investigation, made a report in which he stated that he 
found the office better conducted than any other that he had 
ever examined. The character of the charges referred to, and 
the result of the investigation, may be seen by the following ex- 
tracts from the report referred to : 

''These charge were gotten up a malicious spirit. The evi- 
dence produced is of the lowest and most worthless kind. Not a 
man of character was introduced as a witness against Col. An- 
thony. He himself introduced no witness to sustain his charac- 
ter or management of the post office. Col. Anthony is a very 
independent man; if he don't think a man honest or fit for an 
office on the Republican ticket, he will not support him. At the 
election last fall he was placed in antagonism to two or three 
men on the Republican ticket whom he declined to support, hence 
the post office fight. 

"The petition for the removal of Col. Anthony is supported 
by seven men making charges supported by false affidavits — now 



admitted to be false by the parties who made them. Col. Anth- 
ony's petition for his retention as postmaster of Leavenworth is 
signed by seventy-eight of the most prominent men in Leaven- 
worth, Kansas, and he is also sustained by the Kansas press gen- 
erally. He keeps his office in perfect order. His books are per- 
fect in system, and his accounts show at a glance that Col. Anth- 
ony knows how to perform the duties of a first-class postmaster. 
I cannot conclude this report without expressing to you my con- 
tempt for men who resort to such vile means to effect the re- 
moval of any man from a public position. I respectfully recom- 
mend that the charges against Col. D. R. Anthony, postmaster 
at Leavenworth, be dismissed." 

The charges were accordingly dismissed. 

On the 22d of March, 1878, he was appointed postmaster at 
Leavenworth by President Hayes and was unanimously con- 
firmed by the Senate, this being his fourth appointment to this 

Col. Anthony has been known to the public as a journalist 
since 1861. In January of that year he established the Leaven- 
worth Conservative, of which he was sole proprietor and pub- 
lisher till July, 1862, when he sold it to A. C. & D. W. Wilder. 
The first issue of this paper contained the news of the admission 
of Kansas into the Union as a State, and a bundle of the papers 
was carried by the proprietor himself on horseback, to Lawrence 
— a distance of about thirty miles — where the Legislature was in 
session, and as there was no telegraph line at that time to Law- 
rence, the young Conservative gave to the members the first 
news of the fact that the State had been admitted. This gave 
an auspicious commencement to the new journal which, under 
Col. Anthony's energetic management, soon rose to prominence 
as one of the best and most enterprising papers of the west. 

In March, 1864, Col. Anthony purchased the Bulletin, which 
he published for several years, and in 1868 sold it to W'. S. 

In May, 1871, he purchased the Times, with which the Con- 
servative had previously been united, and in November of the 
same year, he again purchased the Bulletin, and also united that 
paper with the Times. 

A few years later — on the first of January, 1876, — he pur- 
chased the Comniercial and united that journal also with the 
Times, thus acquiring complete command of the newspaper sit- 
uation, and uniting under one proprietorship and one manage- 
ment, all the morning papers of Leavenworth. After purchas- 
ing the Times he retired from other business except the post 
office, and gave his time and attention to his paper, and by un- 


tiring industry and good business management has succeeded in 
building up one of the most extensive and profitable newspaper 
establishments in the west. 

In 1902 he secured control of The Evening Standard, and 
in 1903, secured the controlling interest in the Chronicle-Tribune, 
thus having acquired control over all morning and evening daily 
newspapers published in Leavenworth. 

Col. Anthony's life has been distinguished by an unusual 
degree of activity in business, in politics, and in journalism. His 
name has been prominently before the people of the State for a 
greater length of time than that of any other public man that the 
State has ever had. Kansas has had a large number of men wdio 
have figured prominently in public affairs, for longer or shorter 
periods, and then passed out of sight, but there has not been 
a time since Mr. Anthony took up his residence in Kansas — 
four years before the Territory was admitted into the Union as 
a State — when he has not been conspicuously before the people 
of the commonwealth, and recognized by everybody as one of her 
live men. He was a man of indomitable energy and untiring in 
dustry — Cjualities, which united to unusual physical strength and 
endurance, enabled him to accomplish a marvelous amount of 

He was a man of positive character, and like all such char- 
acters, everywhere, had warm friends, and bitter enemies — and 
it is stating the case very moderately to say that his friends are 
as warm and his enemies as bitter as those of any other man in 
Kansas. The opposition of his enemies, both personal and politi- 
cal, has been of the most violent character, going so far, on more 
than one occasion, as to satisfy him and his friends, that plans 
were being laid to take his life. The only overt act of this char- 
acter, however, was on the evening of the loth of May, 1875. 
As he was entering the Opera House at Leavenworth, in which a 
large audience of ladies and gentlemen had assembled, he was as- 
saulted by an obscure person, who w^as probably procured for 
the purpose, and a desperate attempt was made to murder him — 
an attempt which, it was thought at the time, had been success- 
ful, and, indeed, as is well known now, nothing but his extraor- 
dinary physical constitution, aided in a great measiu'e by his 
resolute will, prevented his death at that time. Three shots were 
fired at him, only one of wdfich took effect ; this was fired from a 
distance of but a few inches — so close that when the pistol was 
discharged the powder burnt his face. 

This shot took effect and the consequences resulting were 
described at great length by Dr. Tiffin Sinks, who was editor of 
the Leavenworth Medical Herald, a publication of standing in 



that day. The bullet passed through the right clavicle, almost 
exactly to the longitudinal center fracturing it in its entirety, 
wounding the sub-clavian artery and lodging somewhere in his 
body. Immediately after the receipt of the injury Col. Anthony 
walked deliberately up ten steps, twelve feet across the floor and 
sat down against the wall on a stool. Dr. Sinks, being near 
reached him instantly. He became too faint to sit and was laid 
upon a row of chairs in the opera house. From the wound bright 
arterial blood was flowing perpendicularly like from a small 
fountain at low pressure. Within six seconds after the wound 
was exposed the blood suddenly ceased to flow and both respira- 
tion and pulsation stopped. All present thought Colonel Anth- 
ony dead. In about a minute respiration again began in a very 
feeble way and it was fully fifteen minutes before the faintest 
pulsation could be detected at the left wrist. Colonel Anthony 
was at once remo\'ed to his home where he lay until thirty-two 
hours after the wound was received before examination could be 
made. It was a long time until it was found that the sub-clavian 
artery had been punctured or entirely severed by the passage of 
the bullet. A month after the injury had been sustained, on June 
I, compression of the artery was begun. This was carried out 
with intermissions until August 30, when it was ultimately 
found that the patient would survive. Dr. Sinks says of the 

"Two features of this case stand out with conspicuous prom- 
inence and so far as I can ascertain, have no parallels in the an- 
nals of surgery. First, his survival of the free opening of the 
artery and second, the entire absence of suppuration in such a 
wound. The artery was unquestionably severed entirely, which 
was unquestionably favorable as it could, in consequence, retract 
and contract. The opening through the bone was free as was 
evidence by the rapid and profuse hemorrhage, the appearance 
of a column of blood at the time the wound was exposed and the 
insertion of the end of my fourth finger into the perforated bone. 
The non-occurence of hemorrhage when re-action began was 
simply marvelous, but shows what nature will do sometimes in 
the way of self-protection and may serve as a lesson on injudici- 
ous interference." 

It also shows the strong physical constitution of the man, 
and illustrates, better than any language might, his indomitable 
will power, which kept him alive under circumstances which 
would have caused the death of any man of less resolute deter- 

Col. Anthony was a man of positive convictions, and was 
untiring and uncompromising in the support or defense of what 


he conceived to be the right. In poHtics, as in everything else, 
friends and enemies aHke always knew where to find him. He 
was deficient in diplomacy, and had but little of the quality com- 
monly known as "policy." The ends that a more politic person 
might reach by strategic means, he attained by straight, hard 
blows, and rarely failed to deal a blow that he thought ought to 
be struck, through fear of its possible unpopularity; hence the 
adverse results that so frequently attended his political ventures. 
His speeches and writings were always marked by the directness 
and force of their statements, and the almost total absence of 
imagination, humor or rhetoric. He was a man of extraordinary 
firmness. He was readily influenced by kind measures, but re- 
sented vigorously any attempt at coercion, resisting force with 
force, to the last extreme. 

He was remarkably domestic in his habits, for one who has 
been so much in public life. He was devotedly attached to his 
family — consisting of his wife, a daughter and a son — and his 
leisure hours were given almost wholly to home pleasures. Phy- 
sically, he was of square, solid frame, "built for strength," was 
six feet tall, and weighed one hundred and eighty pounds. His 
voice was clear and powerful, and in public speaking he had no 
difliculty in making himself distinctly heard and understood by 
everyone, in the largest outdoor audience. 

His whole political life has been a struggle in defence of 
the rights of the common people. He refused to acknowledge 
any distinction of race or color long before the United States 
government recognized the' black man as more than a "chattel," 
and from the time he first entered into public life as an oppon- 
ent of "know nothingism," he has stood consistently and unflinch- 
ingly upon the platform of human rights, holding this grand 
principle paramount to all policies and parties, always holding 
firmly to the belief that the right must in the end prevail, and 
that time brings all things even. He was the champion of liberty 
and equality, religious and political, in the broadest sense. While 
wedded to no religion himself, he recognized the right of every 
man to the fullest protection of the government in the enjoyment 
of his individual opinions and convictions, and was always ready 
to come to the assistance of the oppressed or ostracised of what- 
ever church or creed, whether Protestant or Catholic, Greek or 
Jew, Mohammedan or Pagan. 

As is the case with all men who fight for the principle, and 
refuse to compromise with circumstances, his life has been a 
stormy one — a succession of struggles — a series of contests — a 
life of incessant activity and unremitting effort; an experience 


which had taught him to welcome victory with Httle or no dem- 
onstration, and to accept defeat complacently. 

As a business man, he was exact, systematic and methodical ; 
as a politician he was radical, aggressive and earnest ; as a friend, 
he was firm, active and devoted, and as an enemy — one had bet- 
ter have chosen some other man.

^l*j Anthony Family |'|^ 

.^1 ASSURED. ii. 


Previous to the year 1877, John Gould Anthony, 
of Boston, at the request of his cousin, Senator Henry 
Bowen Anthony, of Rhode Island, visited the homes of 
many families in Rhode Island and gathered about one 
hundred pages. He died at the age of 73 years, and 
his manuscripts were sent to the Historical society of 
Boston, for preservation, as there was no one to take up 
the work he so reluctantly laid do\\n. In 1895 I be- 
came interested in the work and gathered for five years, 
personly visiting several states. I sent out a four page 
printed introduction on the origin and descent of the 
Anthony family from 1 550-1895-12 generations, extend- 
ing over a period of three and one half centuries. 

I have the foundation laid to every known branch 
up to the present time, and am in touch with about 
three thousand names, and can trace every branch, un- 
less there are too many missing links to complete the 
chain. About the year 1900 I laid down the work, 
not being able to find any one in the Anthony family 
to give me any financial aid to complete the work and 
put it into print. I felt the burden that was being rolled 
upon me was greater than I could bear alone, and so the 
long looked for genealogy of the .-Vnthony family was 
laid on the shelf. Albert Lee Anthony, Secretary and 
Treasurer of the R. I. Safe Deposit Co., and financially, 
of^cially and fraternally connected with several other 

enterprises and organizations in the City of Providence, 
"has come to the rescue" and will aid in this laudable 
undertaking to preserve from oblivion things that re- 
main and are ready to die in the Anthony family. I am 
nearing three score and ten, and feel strong mentally, 
morally, physically and spiritually; my ancestors were 
long lived, my Grandfather, Humphrey Anthony, lived 
nearly a century, my father was a close second, both 
dying of old age. So I feel with the united efforts of 
every branch of the family that feels proud of the name 
this work can be accomplished and the Genealogical 
history of the Anthony family in book form can be 
handed down to our posterity from 1550 to the present 

On receiving this printed circular and the founda- 
tion of your branch, we beg of you to use all possi1)le 
diligence in searching your family records and bringing 
your branch down to the present time, as you wish it 
to appear in the book. , We also urge you to furnish 
us your picture or a half tone engraving of yourself, and 
a biographical sketch of your life, to be inserted in the 
book in its proper place, so that we can look into the 
faces of the different branches of the Anthony family 
with a just pride that we compare favorably with any 
other race on the face of the globe. (Of course our 
neighbors will think differently) but we will give the 

test photographically and biographically. We want 
some of the oldest photos in existence of the old grand- 
fathers with the iron will and determined "look out 
young man," as well as the middle aged and the young 
and gay Anthony's of both sexes. 

P. S. — Please keep in mind that we are all descend- 
ants of Quakers, and ought not to be given to the vanity 
of this generation, so please don't part your hair in the 
middle. Yours fraternally,

Artists Seek 
Gilbert Stuart 

NEW YORK. March 7. (UPJ — 
Where are the descendants of 
Gilbert Stuart, the Artists' Fel- 
lowship, Inc., would like to 

The fellowship has been trying 
for more than a month to €ind 
lineal descendant of the famous 
portrait painter of George Wash- 
ington. They have had no luck. 

The fellowship ran into the 
genealogical mystery when it de- 
cided to give Stuart first men- 
tion among artists of an earlier 
period, in Us newly-prepared 
Doomsday Book, The huge, or^ 
nate book contains parchment- 
like testimonials to the greatness 
of those honored within. 

The fellowship is preparing du- 
plicate testimonials to be pre- 
sented to a lineal descendant of 
Ihe honored artist. 

History Confused 

"We agreed on Stuart as th 
top portrait man of his day, 
said Francis Vandeveer Kughler, 
historian of the fellowship. "We 
had no idea there was a scarcity 
of Stuart descendants. 

Kughler drew up the Stuart 
testimonial. Then he began 
looking. He looked in art hi; 
tories. They told all about 
Stuart's art but nothing about 
his family. He looked 
graphical dictionaries. One said 
,-Sluart^bad^ two daughters, om 
.jnientlohed H/6ur daughters, -oni 
SBaW;li9. iiad^-chlldt'en.. .^'5*- 

about it," Kughler said. 
..^- --["He consulted two Revolutlon- 
-ary War societies, the National 
■Gallery In Washington, the Red- 
wood Library in Newport, R. I,. 
and the New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Society. They 
all passed the buck to other out- 

Only One Reply 
" Then he put a classified ad- 
: .vertisement in two New York 

"URGENT: Will lineal de- 
Bcendants of Gilbert Stuart, art- 
ist of the Revolutionary War pe- 
riod who painted portraits of 
Washington and other leading 
figures, please communicate with 
the undersigned on a matter of 
the greatest family interest?" 

That was on Feb. 1. To date 
there has been only one reply. It 
was from a woman who said 
she thought she remembered a 
deceased great aunt telling her 
Stuart was In their genealogy, In 
Eome connection or other. y 

Kughler hired an expert gene- 
alogist. After two weeks of pok- 
ing into records and files, the 
genealogist, noting she had been 
hired to find "the oldest living 
descendant of Gilbert Stuart," re- 

"Seemingly, there Isn't one." 
To ConUnue Hearch 

The genealogist got so Inter- 
ested that she promised to con- 
tinue the investigation free of 
charge to satisfy her own cur- 

Stuart died in Boston In 1828. 
His widow and four surviving 
daughters moved to Newport, ac- 
cording to the genealogist's find- 
ings. A daughter named Ann 
married a man named Slebblns. 
There had been 12 Stuart chil- 
dren. Including a son, It was In- 

That's as far as the Informa- 
tion goes. 

Kughler's studio Is at 39 Kant 
S^th Street, N«w York, \
