PREFACE 



The inscription on tlie page opposite must be accepted as the 
apology, if any is needed, for this publication. 

The compiler had his attention directed to the subject as set forth, 
in the spring of the Centennial year of the Nation, and up to the year 
1871, his knowledge of Benjamin and Rachel Cleveland and their 
decendants, was confined to the posterity of their son Rufus Cleveland, 
his paternal grandfather. Nor could he have accurately told, if his life 
had depended upon the telling, who either the brother or the sisters of 
his grandfather married. 

The letter of " Benjamin and Rachel Cleveland," as given on page 
10, containing certain references to " Zenas," and " Hovey," and "Ham- 
blin," and " Ephraim Pearson," was all that he had as a foundation to 
build upon, and the access, of course, to early township or other public 
records in the New England States. The result of the researches made 
in leisure hours, while engaged in exacting business pursuits, is n^nv 
presented. That these records are free from errors it would be folly to 
pretend, and it is earnestly desired that any found should be pointed 
out, and made known, so that they may not appear in any future 
edition. No merit as a literary performance is claimed or deserved, but 
as evidence of earnest, persevering research, beset and opposed by 
every discouraging obstacle imaginable, it bears its own testimony, and 
will at least be appreciated by those who have had any experience in 
sueh labor. 

The abbreviations used are so few and so apparent in their meaning, 
as to need no exjilanation. 

The small figures attached to various names, and most likely to 
puzzle the reader if unused to such publications, are employed to desig-

nate the different or successive generations. The starting point i. the 
common ancestor, Moses Cleveland, of Woburn, and he is designated 
as Moses Cleveland.' His children are the second generation, and 
his grandchildren are of the third generation, and so on. The Index 
is elaborate enough to enable the reader to find any particular family 
readily, and will probably prove sufficient for all practical purposes. 

The fact that comparatively few of the descendants of Benjamin 
and Rachel Cleveland have either sought or acquired public distinction, 
does not militate against the publication of these records. It will be 
noted that generally their descendants were devoted to agricultural 
pursuits, and belonged especially to the producing classes — the "bone 
and sinew " of the country — the honest, frugal and industrious citizens 
of the commonwealth. All honor to them, then, for such as these the 
nation can not do without. And, in conckision, it may be appropriately 
said of them, as a whole, in the language of the poet Gray — 

" Fur from the madding crowd's ignoble strife, 
Their sober wishes never learned to stray; 
Along the cool, sequestered vale of life 
They kept the noiseless tenor of their way." 



ANCESTRY OF BENJAMIN CLEVELAND. 



Moses Cleveland/ of Woburn, Mass., 1641, appears to 
be the common ancestor of all the " Clevelands " of New Eng- 
land. Family tradition says he emigrated to this country in 
1635, from Ipswicli, Suffolk, Eng., an indentured apprentice 
to a housewright or master builder. From the Woburn town 
records it appears Moses Cleveland was made a freeman in 
1643, no doubt upon attaining the age of 21. Sept. 26, 1648, 
he married Miss Ann Winn, daughter of Edward and Joanna 
Winn, of Woburn. She was also^a native of England. The 
date and place of her birth not learned, nor does the date of 
her death appear on the town records, but the death of Moses 
Cleveland occurred on the 9th Jan. , 1 701-2. (See Appendix A. ) 

They had a family of eleven children — seven sons and 
four daughters, (one child only, the first Joanna, dying in 
childhood), as follows, all born in Woburn : 

1. Moses,* b. Sept. 1, 1651; m. Ruth Norton. 

2. Hannah,'^ b. Aug. 4, 1(553; m. Thomas Heushaw. 

3. Aaron,'^ b. Jan. 10, 1655; m. Dorcas Wilson. 

4. Samuel,'' b. June 9, 1657; m. Jane Keyes. 

5. Miriam,'' b. July 10, 1659; m. Thos. Foskett. 

6. Joanna,* b. Sept. 19, 1661; d. July 2, 1667. 

7. Edward,* b. May 20, 1663; ni. Deliverance Pahner. 

8. Josiah,* b, Feb.'^26, 1666-7; m. Mary Jk9^-*^ 

9. Isaac,* b. May 11, 1669; m. Elizabeth Curtice. 

10. Joanna,* (again), b. April 5, 1670; m. Joseph Keyes. 

11. Enoch,* b. Aug. 1, 1671; m. Elizabeth Counts, of Charles- 

town, Mass.

1657, m. first, in Chelmsford, Mass., May 17, 1680, Jarie 
Keyes, a dau. of Solomon and Frances (Grant) Keyes. She 
was b. in Newbury, Mass., Oct. 25, 1660, and d. without 
issue in Chelmsford, Mass., Nov. 4, 1681. He m. second, in 
Chelmsford, May 23, 1682, Persis Hildreth, dau. of Richard 
and Elizabeth Hildreth. She was b. in Cambridge, Mass., 
Feb. 8, 1660 ; d. in Canterbury, Conn., Feb. 22, 1698. He m. 
third, wid. Margaret Fish, in Canterbury, Conn., July 25, 
1699. He d. in Canterbury, Conn., March 12, 1736. The 
date and place of death of third wife not learned. (See Ap- 
pendix B.) 

Children, by wife Persis : 

1. Persis,'* b. in Chehnsford, April 21, 1(383. 

2. Samuel,' b. in Chelmsford, Jan. 12, 1685; m. Sarah Boswell. 

0. Joseph,' b. in Chelmsford, July 18, 1689; m. Abigail Hyde. 

1. Elizabeth,' b. in Woburn, June 26, 1603; m. John Ensworth. 

5. Mary,^ b. in Canterbury, .June 14, 1696; m. Joseph Ensworth. 

by wife Margaret : 

6. Abigail,' b. in Canterbury, April 23, 1700; d. Feb. 23, 1718. 

7. Timothy,' b. in Canterbury, Avig. 25, 1702; m. Dorothy . 

And perhaps there were other children not recorded, as the 
records were evidently very imperfectly kept during these 
years. 

Hinman, in his Catalogue of the Puritan Settlers of Con- 
necticut, gives two more children, Ephraim,^ and Margaret,^ 
to wife Persis. So far as Ephraim'' is concerned, he may be 
correct, as there was an Ephraim Cleveland who d. in Can- 
terbury, March 13, 1711. Margaret,^ he says, m. Gideon Cable 
in 1717. 

Samuel Cleveland^ was one of the earliest settlers in Plain- 
field, (or Canterbury), Conn., probably about 1694, and was 
followed by his brother Josiih,'^ of Chelmsford, Mass., soon 
after, and subsequently by his brothers Edward,^ of Kingston, 
R. I., and Isaac,^ of Woburn. Canterbury was not incorpo- 
rated as a town until 1703, and was previously a part of 
Plainfield.

him from his cousin "Capt." Joseph,^ son of Josiah- and 
Mary Cleveland. (See Appendix C.)

In regard to the marriage and settlement of some of the 
children of Joseph Cleveland,^ the compiler of these records 
has not been able to determine fully. 

There was an Ephraim Cleveland who settled in Dedham, 
Mass., and m. there, first, Jan. 14, 1734-5, Abigail Curtis, who 
d. Aug. 30, 1738. He m. second, Nov. 21, 1738, Ruth Nichols, 
who also d. in Dedham, Oct. 14, 1744. Children were : Eph- 
raim, Jacoh^ Sarah, Rebekah and Abigail. There was also 
an Ephraim Cleveland who m. Hannah Hayward as late as 
1747, in Bridge water, Mass., and they gave their children 
many of the family names, such as Joseph, Benjamin, Elijah 
and Persis. Further investigation may show the identity of 
one, or possibly both, of them with the Ephraim Cleveland,

of Canterbury, Conn. Concerning Dorothy* nothing has been 
ascertained, and it is probable she lived and died a spinster. 
Elijah* is known to have settled in Hillsdale, (formerly Noble- 
town), Columbia county, N. Y., and is buried there with wife 
Alice ; but Benjamin,* Ezra,* and Samuel,* remained in Can- 
terbury, Conn., where names of children born to them respect- 
ively are recorded. A deed of land by Joseph Cleveland, 
to his "well beloved son, Benjamin Cleveland," bears date 
"Canterbury, Decern"" y'' 23rd, A. D. 1735," with a reserva- 
tion and proviso which reads as follows : 

" Only reserving to my own use and y« use of my family, to get firewood and 
Timber upon s'' Land during my natural life, & said Tjand l)eing in full of _y« por- 
tion my said son sliall ever have of my Estate." 

Later he seems to have divided his lands between his sons 
Ezra and Samuel, under date of March 7, 1753, and probably 
lived near them until his death. 



DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN CLEVELAND. 



Benjamin Cleveland,* a great-grandson of Moses^ and 
Ann (Winn) Cleveland, of Woburn, Mass., was born in 
Canterbury, Windham county. Conn., May 20, 1714. He 
was the third son and child of Joseph^ and Abigail (Hyde) 
Cleveland, and a grandson of SamueP and Persis (Hildreth) 
Cleveland. 

By wife Rachel ,* whom he married in 1736, he had 

a family of ten children, as follows : 

1. Joseph,' b. May 14, 1737; d. Nov. 17, 1749. 

i- 2. Benjamin,* b. , ; d. Nov. 35, 1749. 

3. Dorothy,' b. June 10, 1744; d. Nov. 12, 1749. 

4. Abio-aii," b. Aug. 13, 1746; d. June 2, 1832. 

5. Zenas,' b, Sept. 21, 1748; d. Aug. — , 1821. 
('.. Rachel,' b. May 18, 1750; d. Sept. 27, 1837. 

7. Persis,' b. Jan. 18, 1752; d. March 30, 1834. 

8. Rufus,' b. June 14, 1754; d. Feb. 22, 1838. 

9. Mary,' b. April 14, 1756; d. Jan. 27, 1763. 
10. Phebe,' b. June 25, 1758; d. Aug. 6, 1838. 

Sometime after the marriage of his eldest (surviving) 
daughter, Abigail, to Samuel Hovey, who had settled in the 
town of Lyme, Grafton county, N. H., Benjamin Cleveland 

* The most earnest and persistent endeavors have been made to ascertain the 
maiden name of tliis lady, the date and place of her birth, and the names of lier 
parents. Of the six grandchildren living, not one is at all sure of any facts con- 
cerning her, save that her given name was Rachel. She has been referred to by 
different correspondents and descendants, as a Hall, a Pearson, a Stehbim and a 
Hyde. Mrs. Lois H. Wood worth, of Concord, N. H., who manifested the liveliest 
interest in the preparation of this work nntil her last sickness in 1877, stated that 
she had always understood her father ( Abner Hovey® ) to say, one of his grand- 
mothers was a Perkins, and the other a Hall. Certain it is that the mother of 
Samuel Hovey was Elizabeth Perkins; but as yet nothing has been received 
to determine as certainly the maiden name, etc., of Rachel, wife of Benjamin 
Cleveland.* Tlie compiler will be glad to compensate any one who can furnish 
the desired information concerning her pedigree.

and his wife also removed to the same town, (in N. H.,) wiiere 
his wife died in 1792. About this date Samuel Hovey, who 
became a Baptist preacher, removed from Lyme, N. H., to 
East Brookfield, Orange county, Vt, and there, greatly en- 
feebled by old age, Benj. Cleveland died, A. D. 1797. 

The following letter, written by Benjamin Cleveland to his 
son, Rufus Cleveland, (the original of which is in possession 
of the compiler), is given here to show the unaffected piety 
and simple-heartedness of the writer, as well as to preserve 
the document itself from oblivion. It is written in a plain, 
steady hand, and signed with the a in the first syllable of the 
name, as customarily written by members of the Cleveland 
family in those days. 

" Lyme, October 19tli, 1786. 
' ' Dear Children : 

" Our love to you and yours induces us to let you know that 
through the goodness of God we are in as comfortable states of health as can be 
expected people of our age will be. But we are not insensible of the decays of 
nature, for we daily experience those shocks which show that our dissolution 
draws near. I have a bad cough, but am able to keep about. Your mother is 
better upon the account of her lameness. 

" We have to acquaint you of the sorrowful news of the death of Zenas's two 
youngest children. Zenas and Rachel have both been sick, but have recovered. 
Ephraim Pearson and his wife was here about the beginning of September, and 
were well. 

" Mr. Cook, the bearer, is going to Hjirtford, and he will bring my spectacles 
when he returns, if they are left at Capt. Chamberlain's, and I hope you will 
carry them there, and Avrite to us by Mr. Cook.

He was in .his seventy-third year when he penned the 
foregoing, and it is to be hoped that the good old gentleman 
got his spectacles, of which he doubtless stood in great need.

Hovey, son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Perkins) Hovey. He 
was b. in Windham, Conn., March Y, 1743 ; d. in East Brook- 
field, Vt., May 12, 1833. She d. in East Brookfield, Vt., June 
2, 1832. She was a woman of a most amiable disposition, and 
a thrifty housewife. Her love of music was intense, and 
her voice remarkable for its sweetness, as well as for its 
power and compass. She was very kind to her aged parents, 
and watched over and nursed them most tenderly and un- 
tiringly in their declining years. Her husband cultivated 
successfully a farm, and nevec took anything for his ministerial 
labors in the way of compensation. They had a family of 
thirteen children, as follows :

"Lime, DeC" 28, 1794, then Abigail Hovey,the wife of Samuel Hovey, by the 
consent of the Brethren was dismissed from this chh. to join any chh. of Christ 
which she might choose for her better edification. 

Attest: WM. CONANT, Pas." 

" Lime, April 13, 1795, then Samuel Hovey, a member of this chh. was recom- 
mended to the chh. of Christ in Brookfield." 

From the same records it appears that "Samuel Hovey 
and Abigail Hovey w^ere admitted to the chh. at Lime, June 
2, 1782," and on "Nov. 11, 1784, six more ruling elders 
chosen," among which number is " Samuel Hovey " ; showing 
him to have been an active member in the ecclesiastical organ- 
ization at "Lime." His connection with the Baptists was 
after his removal to Brookfield, Vt. 

In the burying-ground on "East Hill," Brookfield, Vt., 
may be found the stones which mark the graves of this worthy 
pioneer and his wife, bearing the following inscriptions : 

" Elder Samuel Hovey, Preacher of the Gospel, died May 13, 1833, aged 90 
years and 2 mo." 

" Mrs. Abigail Hovey, wife of Elder Samuel Hovey, died June 2, 1832, aged 
85 years and 10 mo." 

Around them are the graves of many of their kindred and 
descendants, including children, grandchildren and great- 
grandchildren, and the living may well learn a lesson from the 
lives and characters of Samuel Hovey and Abigail Cleveland, 
his wife.

Gen. Alvin P Hovey/ a Judge of the Supreme Court, in 
the State of Indiana, and late U. S. Minister to Peru, is per- 
haps the most distinouished of the descendants of Abigail 
Cleveland.^ He served v^^itli efficiency in the war of the 
Rebellion, and was esteemed a brave and skillful officer ; and 
in May, 1864, was Brig. General in command of the 1st Div. 
23rd Army Corps, in Tennessee. The following note, taken 
from the "Centennial Historical Sketch of Posey County, 
Indiana," is here inserted as a brief epitome of his life and 
public services : 

" Note. — General Alviu P. Hovey is a native of Posey county, and was a del- 
egate in the convention that framed the new Constitution of the State of Indiana, 
in 1850. He was Judge of the Circuit Court for the judicial circuit comprising 
Posey county and ten other counties in the southwestern part of tlie State, from 
May, 1851, to May, 1854; and he was Judge of the Supreme Court of Indiana 
from May, 1854, to 1855. He was United States District Attorney, for the 
district of Indiana, from 1856 to 1858, when he was decapitated by President 
Buchanan for supporting Stephen A. Douglas for President, and Daniel W. Voor- 
hees was appointed to till the vacancy. He was Colonel of the 24th Indiana 
Vohinteers in the late war for the suppression of the Southern rebellion. He was 
promoted Brigadier General of Volunteers April 13th, 1862, and afterwards, July 
0th, 1864, he was promoted Brevet Major General of U. S. Volunteers, " for dis- 
tinguished and meritorious service during the present war." He commanded at 
the celebrated battle of Champion Hill, whicli was the key battle of the Vicks- 
burg campaign, opening tlie way to the capture of Vicksburg, and General U. S. 
Grant gave him great credit for running that battle. He was appointed Envoy 
Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States to the Govern- 
ment of Peru, South America, Aug. 12, 1865, and resigned in 1870."

(For additional genealogical information as to the Hovey

Zenas Cleveland,^ the fifth child of Benj. and Rachel 
Cleveland, was b. in Canterbury, Conn., Sept. 21, 1748. The 
date and place of his marriage to Eunice Ludington, the names 
of her parents, or the date and place of her birth, not learned. 
When he was a lad of perhaps eight or ten years of age, 



■ 

m he came in from the hayfield, and while lying down to rest lie 
I experienced a sharp pain in one of his legs, so acute as 
to cause him to scream aloud. In a few days something like 
a fever sore or ulcer broke out, and when healed he was left a 
cripple for life. He appears to have learned the trade of a 
shoemaker. In 1786 he resided in Brookfield, Yt., and buried 
his two youngest children there in August of that year. All 
traces of him and his family are lost from the time he left there 
in 1791, until found in Sullivan county, N. Y., about the year 
1811. He was then in poor circumstances, and worked at 
shoemakino; at Bethel, in that county. Shortly after that 
date he left that place and removed to Litchfield, Bradford 
county, Pa., where his only son, Zenas Cleveland, Jr., had taken 
up a wild piece of land. There his wife Eunice died, May 1, 
1824, surviving her husband about three years. He d. Aug. 
27, 1821, aged nearly 73. They were both buried on the place, 
a few rods from the house, but no stone marks their resting 
place now. The farm is now owned and cultivated by Joshua 
Turk, Esq., who kindly pointed out to me the slight knoll 
designating the two graves of Zenas Cleveland,^ and Eunice 
Ludington, his wife. As nearly as can be ascertained they 
had a family of six children : 

1. Eunice,® b. (about) 1773; d. 

2. Betsey,® b. (about) 177G; d. 

3. Zenas,'^ b. Sept. — , 1778; d. Jan. 13, 1873. 

4. Eleanor,® b. April 10, 1780; d. Aug. 27, 1869. 

5. Anna,® b. , 1782; d. Aug. 5, 1786. 

6. James,® b. Oct. 30, 1784; d. Aug. 10, 1786. 

An extraordinary effort has been made by the writer to 
trace this family and descendants, but with the exception of one 
daughter, Eleanor,® with poor success. Either Eunice'* or Bet- 
sey® is supposed to have married a man by the name of Wing, 
who lived at one time near Albany, N. Y., and liad a son, 
Freeman Wing. Every effort so far to trace them has been in 
vain. (See Appendix F. ) 

Zenas Cleveland,® Jr., son of Zenas and Eunice (Lud- 
ington) Cleveland, b, Sept. — , 1778, m. Deborah Kenned}^ (or

Canada), but the date and ^ace of his marriage, or the dat 
and place of her birth, or n;rnes of her parents, not learned 
They had no children. She died in Litchfield, Bradforc 
county, Pa., March 22, 1849. Her husband was a burly, 
thick set and fearless man, as fond of a rough-and-tumble 
fight at militia musters, as the proverbial Irishman at Donny- 
brookFair. He was a very successful farmer, and considered 
even wealthy at one time, by his neighbors. He was quite 
blind for nearly ten years before his death, and was kindly 
cared for in the family of a Mr. Wolcott for many years 
previous to that event, which occurred Jan. 13, 1873, in his 
96th year.

(Ludington) Cleveland, b. April 10, 1780, m. first, in

Rufiis Cleveland,^ was a farmer. He was of medium 
height, florid complexion, light curly hair, and blue eyes. 
Was a fine singer, fond of a good story, and industrious and 
temperate in his habits. He served as a soldier during the 
Revolutionary war, and paid his marriage fee in one hundred 
dollars of Continental currency. Being employed by Capt. 
Chamberlain upon his farm, he conveniently courted and in 
due time married his first wife. Miss Mollie, eldest daughter 
of his employer ; and when his father-in-law removed from 
Ellington, in Tolland county, to Warehouse Point, in East 
Windsor, Hartford county, Conn., he, with his wife and family, 
accompanied him. This was in the spring of 1782 or 1783. 
He remained in East Windsor until the spring of 1787, when 
he removed to Barkhamstead, Litchfield county, Conn., and 
purchased a farm of his own on Wallen' s Hill. Here his wife 



'S'Z Genealogy of Benjamin Cleveland. 

died in tlie autumn of 1807, of a fever contracted from nursing 
a neighbor s wife, and who also died of the same fever, which 
at that time prevailed as an epidemic in the neighborhood. 
Her kindness to the sick, and readiness to watch with and care 
for them at all times, made her greatly beloved, and her depart- 
ure from earth was mourned as if a ministering angel had been 
taken away indeed. In the old burying- ground on the ' ' Hill ' ' 
may be seen the graves of this worthy couple, and the inscrip- 
tions upon the headstones placed there are as follows : 

" In memory of Rufus Cleveland, who died Feb. 22, 1838, aged 83 years." 

" In memory of Mrs. Mary Cleveland, wife of Rufus Cleveland, and daughter 
of Capt. .James Chamberlain, who died Novem. 13, 1807, in the 49th year ot 
her age." 

His second wife, who died of cancer after a distressing and 
protracted illness, was buried in the village cemetery, in 
Winsted. The inscription on her tombstone is simply — 

"Alice, wife of Rufus Cleveland, died Oct. 14, 1833." 

Rufus Cleveland^ was in his eighty -fourth year when he 
died, and not in his eighty-third, as the inscription indicates. 
As will be noted, four children are yet living — two by the 
first and two by the second wife — but very soon the places 
which know them now, will know them no more forever.

ants will be found in Appendix J.)

Persis Cleveland,^ was of small stature, fair complexion, 
raven black hair and black eyes. She was verj^ ambitious, 
with no dower except her beauty, and her marriage into one 
of the aristocratic families of Connecticut was bitterly opposed 
by some of her husband's relatives. She was a devoted wife 
and mother, though somewhat fretful as she grew in years ; 
aided her husband to acquire a handsome property, and 
reared a large family to habits of energetic industry. 

She and her husband were buried in the old cemetery 
some distance from the village, in the eastern part of the 
township. The inscriptions upon the marble are as follows :

Rufus Cleveland,'' is a farmer by occupation, and resides 
on " Wallen'sHill," Barkhamstead, (Winsted Society), Conn. 
He has represented his town in the State Legislature several 
terms, and filled various offices of trust conferred upon him 
with strict fidelity. His devoted love and kindness to his 
second wife, who became entirely blind for several years before 
her death, only serves to show that under a somewhat rough 
exterior, he possesses the tenderness of a woman combined 
with the best characteristics of the true gentleman. Though 
he has passed the allotted age of man, he is still vigorous and 
hearty, and content to spend the evening of his days among 
the hills of Litchfield county, and in sight of his birthplace.

Oren Cleveland,* was brought up by his maternal grand- 
parents at Warehouse Point, East Windsor, Conn. A good 
student at the academy in the village, he graduated with 
credit to his preceptors and himself. After his marriage and 
removal to Litchfield county. Conn., he was much sought for 
as a school teacher, and taught successfully in various places 
two summers and fourteen winters. He entered the employ 
of the firm of Belknap & Hammersly, Booksellers in Hart- 
ford, as a canvasser, and traveled over a considerable portion 
of the New England States. He also sold clocks for Riley 
Whiting of Winsted, extensively in the New England States 
and in Eastern New York and Pennsylvania. In 1839 he 
came to Geauga county, Ohio, to be near his eldest daughter, 
where he resided up to the death of his wife in 1869. In the 
fall of that year he took up his residence with his youngest 
son, a merchant in Cleveland, Ohio. In stature he is about five 
feet eight inches, and in his prime of life of ruddy complexion, 
with black hair and dark blue eyes. He was a superior 
horseman, and was accounted the finest "trooper" in his 
company^^ His kindness of heart, combined with a natural 
politene^ of manners and rare conversational powers, not to

omit to mention a fund of anecdotes and incidents of travel, 
made liim hosts of friends wherever he went. 

Although nearly a century has passed since he first saw 
the light of day, he still enjoys a fair degree of health, with 
his mental faculties unimpaired. His memory of persons and 
past events is certainly very remarkable, to say the least. He 
has invariably acted with the Whig and Republican parties, 
though never radical in partisanship. About the year 1 814 he 
united with the Congregational Society in Winsted, Conn., 
and continued without other ecclesiastical connection until 
1872, when, after much reading and reflection, he was con- 
firmed by Rt. Rev. Gr. T. Bedell, in Grace (Episcopal) Church 
in Cleveland, Ohio. Contented and happy, in peace and 
charity with all men, he cheerfully awaits his Master's call 
from the church militant on earth to the cliurch triumphant 
in heaven. 

His children who grew to adult age were nine in number, 
and all living.

In the fall of 1787, he, with others, took a drove of swine to

she was captured by a Spanish privateer, and he taken to 
Algiers, and sold into slavery. Nine years elapsed before he 
escaped and arrived in Savannah, Ga. His wife, after waiting 
his return seven years, mourned him as dead, and married 
again. Learning this fact from his brother, and exacting a 
sacred pledge that his whereabouts should never be revealed 
to her during his lifetime, he remained in Savannah, opened 
a butcher' s shop, and prospered for several years, when he 
died suddenly after a short illness. The pledge given was 
faithfully observed, and she knew nothing of the matter 
until after his decease. (For further genealogical informa-

Concerning Pliebe Cleveland,^ her granddaughter, Mrs. 
Alfred Parsons, of Eaiiville, N. Y., writes me. May 16, 1878, as 
follows: "My knowledge of my 'mother's' parents is very 
limited. Have no recollection of grandfather, nor of any of 
his peculiar traits of character. Can remember grandmother 
only as an old lady, seated in her rocking chair, knitting or 
reading. The last three years of her life her mental faculties 
were much impaired by a shock of palsy, and I was only ten 
years old when she was thus mentally benumbed. She was 
not corpulent, and I remember she had a slim hand and long 
fingers. The expression of her countenance was that of stern- 
ness and sadness — never laughed much.' ' No stone with the 
proper inscription marks her grave in Sherburne cemetery, 
though there is said to be one to the memory of her last hus-

This concludes the records for theportion of this genealogy 
other than the Appendix. In that, extensive additions have 
been made to all that has preceded, and much more might 
have been added without exhausting the material on hand 
and constantly accumulating. Should the compiler ever 
attempt another edition, many advantageous changes in the 
general arrangement of the work could doubtless be made. 
But he indulges the hope that what has been placed before 
the reader will not appear ambiguous in any sense, or difficult 
to be comprehended and understood. 

It should be stated that a large and complete Genealogy 
of the Clevelands in this country is in active preparation by 
James Butler Cleveland,^ Esq., late of Washington, D. C, 
but now residing in Oneonta, Otsego county, N. Y. So that 
this work is in no sense a substitute for the one to be issued 
at the earliest possible period by hitn. His assiduity and 
skill in his researches, so far as the writer can judge, entitle 
him to rank as one of the best genealogists in the country. 
Every one who bears the honored name of Cleveland, or is a

descendant of any one by that name, near or remote, should 
put themselves at once into communication with him, and 
cheerfully, and withal proinj)tly^ contribute what they know 
or can obtain about their pedigrees in the Cleveland line. 
The years are passing rapidly by, and every day the task 
becomes more difficult as, the elder members drop away, and 
what they alone knew, and could have imparted when living, 
is thus lost forever. No one can tell how valuable the records 
of his pedigree may prove to him, or to his descendants. 
Certain it is that very many will regret that they neglected to 
perfect and preserve them. 

Copy of a letter of inquiry — written by Rev. John Cleve- 
land, of Ipswich, Essex county, Mass., in 1759, to another 
John Cleveland, Maltster, etc., in England, and the state- 
ments in which are, or should be, conclusive as to the pedi- 
gree of all New England Clevelands — is here inserted. This 
Rev. John Cleveland,^ a son of Josiah^ and Abigail (Paine) 
Cleveland, was b. in Canterbury, Conn., April 12, 1722, 
(0. S.), and could not have been mistaken in such a plain and 
positive account of his father's grandfather. It is not known 
that an answer was received from the opulent brewer or 
maltster, and perhaps the letter of inquiry never reached 
him. The copy, as originally made by the reverend gentle- 
man himself, is in my possession, and is submitted herewith 
'oerhatim ei liieratim :

" Being informed (by tlie Bearer, one Samuel Bates) of your Name and 
the Place of your abode, I supposed it liiglily probable that you are of the same 
Family that I sprang from. My Great Grandfather's Name was Moses Cleave- 
land, and came from Ipswich, in Sufiblk. He was young when he came to New- 
England, and was an apprentice to a joyner, and came with His Master. He 
settled in Woburu, near Boston, married, and had seven Sons, besides Daughters, 
and his sons all left Children, and all in New-England, of the Name, are his

exactly as the same Family does in England. Because, as the said Moses was 
young when he left England, and could not read and write, if I am not mism- 
formed. I have seen the Name spelt as I spell it in Books Printed in England, 
but most commonly I find it spelt thus, Cle\eland, or Clevland, but as you are 
undouljtcdly of y"= same Family, if These Unes should come to your Hands I 
should esteem it a Favour that you would write me, and give me some account

County of Sufiolk, 

Living in Silent St., 

Near St. Clemence Church, 

England." 

The compiler so far has made no serious attempt to trace 
the pedigree of Moses Cleveland/ in England. To those who 
have a taste for "the boast of heraldry," the following is 
given, concerning the family : 

" Cleveland — (Durham, Eng.) 

" Coat of Arms. — Per chevron, sable and ermine, a chevron engrailed, coun- 
ter changed. 

" Cres^.— A demi-old man habited, azure, having on his head a cap, gules, 
turned up with fur, holding in his dexter hand a spear, proper, having from the 
blade a golden cord passing behind and coiled in the left hand. 

" Motto.— ^vo Deo, et Patria." 

Mr. Hinman, in his "Puritan Settlers," gives the follow- 
ing account of the name: "Cleveland, Cleaveland. — This 
family probably derived the name from the town of Cleve- 
land, in the county of Durham, England. The principal 
branch was seated in the county of York. Early in the 13th 
century. Sir Guy de Cleveland was present at the siege of 
Boulogne in France, afterwards at the battle of Poictiers, 
when he commanded the spearmen. And a branch of this 
family went into Devonshire, and continued until the male 
line of the family became extinct." The woiJ itself is a cor- 
ruption of " Clilf-land," thus certifying beyond question its 
English origin.

In reference to the children of Moses' and Ann (Winn) Cleveland, 
the space assigned to this work allows but brief mention. Each will be 
taken up in the order of birth. 

Moses Cleveland,^ eldest son and child of Moses' and Ann (Winn) 
Cleveland, was b. in Woburn, Mass., Sept. 1, 1051, nearly three years 
after recorded date of marriage. The compiler is inclined to believe 
that he was a sea-faring man. He m. Oct. 4, 1676, (according to the Wo- 
burn records), Ruth Norton, perhaps a dau. of Francis and ^Mary Norton, 
of Charlestown, or, more probably, a dau. of Nicholas and Elizabeth 
Norton, of Weymouth, Mass. In support of the latter opinion is the 
fact that Nicholas Norton, Jr., was of Edgartown, (Martha's Vineyard), 
Mass., in 1669, and that the numerous families of Clevelands on the 
Island are descendants of Moses* and Ruth (Norton) Cleveland. Hence 
it is reasonable to suppose that near relationship to the Nortons of 
Martha's Vineyard, brought the descendants of Moses Cleveland" to 
settle there. Mr. Richard J. Pease, of Edgartown, the historian of the 
Island, confirms this in a letter to Nehemiah Cleveland, Esq., of Brook- 
lyn, N. Y., dated Feb. 19, 1855, in which he says: "You are right in 
the conjecture formed that our Clevelands come from Moses and Ruth. 
Ruth Norton was the daughter of Nicholas Norton, the ancestor of all 
our Nortons. Before his removal to this town he was of ' Weymouth,' 
where some of his children were born. Nicholas died here in 1690, 
aged 80 years; his wife Elizabeth soon after him, in the same year." 

According to the Woburn records, Moses" and Ruth (Norton) Cleve- 
land had but two children in ten years, namely: -'jj 

1. Anna,3 b. Nov. 7, 1677 ; m. Bell. 

3. Joseph,^ b. March 31, 1686; probably settlecj in Nantucket or Mar. 
tba's Vineyard.

Moses C. Cleveland,^ eldest son of Moses' and Parnel (Conklin) 
Cleveland, was born in Southold, L. I., July 4, 1795. He attended the 
school of Master Wines Osborn, an instructor of local fame, who taught 
during many years in " the Brick School House," a building owned by 
twenty-seven proprietors, of whom Moses Cleveland' was one. They 
sold it, Dec. 30, 1816, to the Trustees of School Dist. No. 5, of the 
Town of Southold. It stood upon the site now occupied by the -Chapel 
of the Presbyterian Church. The building was taken down in 1844. 

In December, 1812, he went to live as an apprenticed cordwainer for 
three years with Deacon Nathaniel Hubbard, who was doing a large 
business in tanning and currying, and in the manufacture of boots and 
shoes, at Mattituck, L. I. He faithfully fulfilled his obligations, won the 
confidence and esteem of the family in which he lived, and became a 
skillful workman. Afterwards, in August, 181''', he went to Catskill, 
N. Y., where he wrought in fine work for a year in the employ of Mr. 
Gideon Reynolds. He subseqviently enlarged his field of observation, 
and his practice as a skillful workman, in Madison, Hudson City, 
Goshen, and Newburgh, N. Y. 

On the 2nd of June, 1819, he was married by the Rev. Lathrop 
Thompson, to Sarah, the eldest daughter of Deacon Nathaniel and 
Sarah (Reeve) Hubbard, in whose family he had lived during his 
apprenticeship. 

About the year 1823 a village began to spring up around the Suffolk 
County Covirt House. This village has more recently become known as 
Riverhead. Mr. Cleveland made this the place of his residence in Sep- 
tember, 1824. Judge Miller, in his Centennial History of the Town of 
Riverhead, speaks of Mr. Cleveland as being, in 1825, one of the active 
business men of the village. Mrs. Cleveland, after a few days' illness, 
died there. May 3, 1832, aged 35 years. On the 11th of May, 1833, he 
was married by the Rev. Abraham Luce to Miss Ency Hubbard, sister of 
his first wife, who was born at Mattituck, Dec. 16, 1802, 

From his earliest years his Christian principles were sound, his moral 
character was high, and his integrity in business and other relations strict 
and trustworthy; but it was not until July, 1838, that he made a public 



Appendix. SI 



confession of his Christian faith and became a full member of the First 
Church of Southold. Five years later, he was elected to the office of 
Deacon, and he has fulfilled the duties of the office for thirty-six years. 
Soon after he became a Deacon, he was chosen to be one of the Trustees 
of the Church. For a long course of years he has been a Director of 
the Suffolk County Mutual Insurance Company; and from the origin of 
Southold Savings Bank, in 1858, his name has been prominent on its 
Board of Trustees. He has repeatedly filled various offices of public 
trust to which he has been called by the votes of his fellow townsmen ; 
and his character and usefulness have often been manifest as the guar- 
dian of children whose orphanage has caused them to need some wise and 
faithful man to fill the father's place. He has been especially active in 
the promotion of temperance throughout the county, and of religion on a 
far wider field. Perhaps there is no other man living who has attended 
so many of the meetings of the Suffolk County Temperance Association 
throughout its whole existence for the last twenty -nine years. 
He had but one child, 

1. Nathaniel Hubbard," b. June IT, 1834, 

Who has given much attention to the genealogy and history of his 
branch of the Clevelands. Res. Southold, L. I. 

William Henry Cleveland,^ second son of Moses^ and Parnel 
(Conklin) Cleveland, was born at Southold, L. I., Jan. 9, 1797, where 
he attended the school of Master Wines Osborn, with his elder brother 
Moses. In December, 1816, he was examined by the Commissioners of 
Schools and duly licensed by their certificate as a teacher in the public 
schools of Southold. He first taught in the village of Oyster Ponds, 
now known as Orient, L. I. The following spring he entered " Clinton 
Academy," at East Hampton, L. I., boarding with Rev. Ebenezer 
Phillips, the princi]ial, who was also pastor of the Presbyterian Church 
in that place. This academy has the honor of having been one of the 
first two chartered by the Regents of the University of New York State 
in 1784. It was named in honor of Gov. George Clinton, by whom it 
was presented with a bell. During the years 1818 and 1819 Mr. Cleve- 
land was the Preceptor in School Dist. No. 9 of the town of Smithtown, 
L. I., where, according to the custom of the day, he "boarded around." 
There he decided to be a physician, and during the time he taught there, 
was also a student with the resident physician, Dr. C. H. Havens. He 
m. Feb. 8, 1820, Mary Ann, daughter of Capt. Jonathan and Rebecca 
(King) Terry, of Oyster Ponds, where she was born June 2, 1798, and 
where she died precisely ten months after her marriage, Dec. 8, 1820. 
He then entered Yale College, graduating in 1823. On the twenty- 
second day of August, 1824, he married Zilpha Thayer, first born of 
thirteen children of Ebenezer and Phebe (Crowell) Thayer, who was 
born at Greenfield, Mass., Jan. 22, 1804. He first settled in Enfield, 
Mass., where he was a successful practitioner for ten years, and then 
located himself at Shelburne Falls, Mass. After several years, he re- 
moved to Springfield, Mass., where he resided until his death, which

Having graduated at Harvard, 1735, he entered the Congregational min- 
istry, and was settled over the Haddam (Conn.) people in 1739. Was 
dismissed in 1746, and in 1747 was installed over the South Church in 
Maiden, Mass., but dismissed in 1750. He is next heard of at Halifax, 
Nova Scotia, whence he sailed for England; received holy orders in the 
Church of England, at London, 1755, and was commissioned, July 1, 
1 757, by the Society for Propagating the Gos])el in Foreign Parts, to take 
charge of the Episcopal Church in New Castle, Pa., in com))liance with 
the request of that parish. The following is an exact copy of the letter of 
the Society under whose auspices he was to settle at New Castle. It 
may be found in the church records at New Castle: 

"Charter House, July ], 1757. 
" Good Gentlemen : 

"The Society for the propagation of the Gospel in foreign 
parts, have granted your request, & appointed M'- Cleveland their Missionary 
in your Church ; but it is on this express condition, which is now a standing rule 
in all their missions, that you provide him with a good House and Glebe, & not 
less than twenty pounds sterling per annum towards his more comfortable sup- 
port. 

" Heartily recommending you & M""- Cleveland to God's Blessing, 

I am. Sirs, 
your very faithful 
humble Servant, 
"To the Church Wardens J'lilLIP BEARCROFT. 

& Vestry of the Episcopal 
Church of New Castle, 

in Pennsylvania." 

On his way to Boston to arrange for the conveyance of his family to 
New Castle, he sto]iped at the house of his old friend. Dr. Benjamin 
Franklin, in Philadelphia, was there taken sick and died, Aug. 11, 1757. 
His remains were buried in Christ Church, Philadelphia. A warm eulo- 
gium, written by Dr. Franklin, the editor, appeared in the obituary no- 



Appendix. 85 



tice in the Pennsylvanin Gazette^ of Aug. 18, 1757. His widow d. in 
Salem, Mass., in 1788. His son, Rev. Aaron Cleveland,' was the mater- 
nal grandfather of Rt. Rev. A. Cleveland Coxe,' Bishop of the Diocese of 
Western New York, and of Hon. Wm. E. Dodge,' of New York City. 
Why it is that none of the numerous and intelligent descendants of this 
branch of the Clevelands (called the Aaroti branch) have ever attempted 
to compile a genealogical record, is unaccountable to the writer. Capt. 
Stephen Cleveland,' an experienced seaman, who received his commis- 
sion from the first President of the Continental Congress, also Richard 
Jeifrey Cleveland,^ author of " Cleveland's Voyages " — a very popular 
book in its day — were of this branch. 



[For account of descendants of Samuel Cleveland,^ see pages 5 — 8, 
and Appendix B.] 

Miriam Cleveland,* the second daughter and fifth child of Moses' 
and Ann (Winn) Cleveland, b. in Woburn, Mass., July 10, 1659, m. in 
Charlestown, Mass., Dec. 13, 1683, Thotuas Foskett, son of John and 
Elizabeth Foskett. All that is learned of this family would show that 
John Foskett, of Charleston, 1658, was a householder, 1678. Elizabeth, 
his wife, was admitted to the Church, April 6, 1673, and two weeks 
thereafter, April 20th, their children, six in number — John, Thomas, 
Joshua, Robert, Elizabeth, and Mary — were all baptized; son Jonathan, 
bap. Nov. 1, 1674, and dau. Abigail, June 6, 1680. The children of 
Thomas and Miriam^ (Cleveland) Foskett, as appearing on the V/^oburn 
records, are three, namely : 

1. Thomas,^ b. April 26, 1684; d. . 

2. Elizabeth,^ b. May 10, 1686. 

8. John,3 b. May 8, 1688; d. July 11, 1689. 

The date and place of death of Miriam,* or her husband, or anything 
further concerning the family, has not been ascertained. 



Edwakd Cleveland,* the fourth son and seventh child of Moses' 
and Ann (Winn) Cleveland, b. in Woburn, Mass., May 20, 1663, m. for 
first wife, as the compiler thinks, (though unable to give place and date, 
or parentage with certainty). Deliverance Palmer, and at one time lived 
in Kingston, R. I., though about 1716 he purchased land in Canterbury, 
Conn. The deed states him to be " late of Kingstown, Rhode Island." 
While residing in Canterbury his wife died, as the records there show, 
June 7, 1717, and he m. second, in Canterbury, Jan. 1, 1722, Zeruiah 
Church, who, so far as appears, bore him no children. It is concluded 
he returned to Rhode Island and died there, but date not learned. 

Children, as far as found, were — 

1. Edward,^' b. (probably) ia 1689 ; m. Rebecca Paine. 

2. Isaac,'' b. (probably) in 1691 ; m. Susannah Johnson. 

3. Samuel, 3 b. (probably) in 1693; m. Marj' Darb}'.

5. Mary ,3 b. (probably) in 1697.

Edward Cleveland/ eldest son and child of Edward** and Deliver- 
ance (Palmer) Cleveland, b. about 1689, m. in Canterbury, Conn., April 
17, 1716, Rebecca Paine, dau.of Elisha and Rebecca (Doane) Paine. She

doubt be able in his large work to make it more perfect and intelligible. 



JosiAH Clevelakd,^ fifth SOU and eighth child of Moses' and Ann 
(Winn) Cleveland, b. in Woburn, Mass., Feb. 26, 1667, m. (probably) 
in 1689, or early in 1690, Mary , and settled in the town of Chelms- 
ford, with his brother, Samuel Cleveland." From this fact, and that he 
followed this brother to Canterbury, Conn., the compiler is disposed to 
the opinion that he may have married a daughter of Richard and 
Elizabeth Hildreth, if they had a daughter Mary. There may be no 
significance in the names given by Samuel':^ and Josiah" to the first three 
children born to each, but it is worth noticing that the second son is 
Joseph^ in each case, and possibly named for his uncle Joseph Hildreth, 
of Chelmsford. Be this as it may, the numerous and intelligent descend- 
ants, now living, of Josiah Cleveland,- should no longer delay every 
effort possible to ascertain the maiden name of Mary^ his wife. 

The children, whose names are found on the Chelmsford and Canter- 
bury records, are nine in number, besides a daughter Rachel, who, 
according to Hinman, m. Jonas Spaulding in 1722: 

I. Josiah,3 b. in Chelmsford, Oct. 7, 1690.

Besides Abigail, who m. Moses Parker, of Chelmsford. The father d. in 
Chelmsford, in 1688, aged 83, according to the gravestone erected to his 
memory. 

Richard Hildreth, the Historian, is a lineal descendant of Richard and 
Elizabeth Hildreth, of Chelmsford, tracing to Joseph and Abigail 
(Wilson) Hildreth as above. 



The place of the birth of Persis, wife of Samuel Cleveland,'^ is 
erroneously given on page 6. It is there stated she was a native of 
Cambridge, Mass. For " Cambridge " read Cliehnsford. 

Nothing concerning Persis,^ eldest child of Samuel'- and Persis 
(Hildreth) Cleveland, has been learned. The Canterbury records are 
barren of information about her, and she may have died unmarried. 

Samuel,^ son of SamueF and Persis (Hildreth) Cleveland, m. in 
Canterbury, Conn., Dec. 10, 1719, Sarah Bos well, dau. of Robert Boswell, 
Esq., of Canterbury. He d. in Canterbury, Oct. 1,1727. His widow

Concerning Elijah Cleveland,* the sixth child of Joseph^ and Abi- 
gail (Hyde) Cleveland, the compiler gives the following brief account, 
having recently found and traced his descendants. His wife was Alice 
Lawrence, but of her birth and parentage there is nothing yet ascertained, 
except that she was born about the year 1 730. They were married about 
the year 1748, and settled in Columbia county, N. Y. A correspondent

in Hillsdale furnishes me with a copy of the iiiscjiptions upon their tomb- 
tones, in the old burying-ground there, as follows: 

" In memory of Mr. Elijah Cleveland, who departed this life Sept. 28, 1794, 
in the 74th year of his age." 

"lu memory of Mrs. Alice, wife of Mr. Elijah Cleveland, wlio died June 13, 
1799, in her 69th year." 

They had a family of nine children at least, but the order of births 
can not be given with certainty, as the exact dates of the births of three

The compiler regrets his inahility to present further information of 
interest concerning Bexja:xiin Clicvelaxd,'* and Rachel his wife, but 
certainly there has been no lack "f zeal in his endeavors to obtain it. 
He has examined carefully the Piobate records in the hope that some- 
thing might be found to determine the maiden name of the said Rachel. 
As no will of Joseph Cleveland^ (son of SamueP) appears on those 
records, the conclusion is that he died intestate. No grandchild or 
great-grandchild of Rachel is foimd beai-ing her full maiden name, as in 
the case of Elizahatli Perkins llibbard,'' youngest child of Elizabeth 
Hovey,* (see page 16), who AA'as named for the mother of Rev. Samuel 
Hovey. Such partiality in selection of names among the Hoveys may 
perhaps be excused, biit among the Clevelands in the direct line of 
de?cent from Benjamin,'* such neglect to perpetuate an honorable name 
in our ancestry is utterly indefensible — from a genealogical standpoint 
at least. 

It has been intimated to the writer that she was of Welsh extraction, 
but this seems only a traditionary- conjecture. Two excellent though cred- 
ulous persons, among the multitude of her great-grandchildren, one in New 
York State and the other in Ohio, and who are wont to consult spiritual 
mediums for answers to vexed questions, confidently advised him, over a 
year ago, that the mystery concerning her was solved; and, better than 
all, " the source of the information was unquestionably reliable." But 
the truth must be told, notwithstandlno- it mav show that the most reliable 
mediums are liable, like doctors, to disagree. Through one she declared 
most positively that her name was " Rachel iVcrto??," a native of Glasgow, 
Scotland; and through the other, with equal certainty, that it was 
" Rachel Craig^'' nativity not given. So the mystery became more 
mysterious if possible than ever, and " clouds aiul darkness rest upon it." 

On page 60, Vol. VII, of the Canterbury (Conn.) Land Records, 
mav 1)0 found the following Deed: 

" To (ill GhriHtidn j)e.ople to whom these presents shall come —

Whether the wife of Benjamin Cleveland was incapable of writing 
her signature at all, or whether her ag-itation in relinquishing her joint 
right, "in or to a sartain Brook which runs through the west end of 
the s"* Cleaveland's Land," rendered her unable to do so, is not manifest. 
Indeed it now matters not. Over a century and a quarter has passed 
since that Deed was delivered to Jonathan Downing, Sen., and centuries 
may come and go, till that " whole term of nine hundred and ninety 
years " expires. What then ? " The Brook " will still run its course 

" to SAvell the brimming river,"

glorious verdure of each returning summer. Children will j^lay upon its 
banks and bathe their bare feet in its limpid, sparkling waters, as did of 
yore the Httle ones of Benjamin and Rachel Cleveland. Will there be 
sorrow again like that which filled the hearts and darkened the home 
of this young couple, when, within a fortnight during that dreary month 
of November, in the year of grace 1V49, three of their five children 
sickened and died, andVere buried side by side in three little graves for 
violets to grow upon when the spring-tide came — " Joe " and " Bennip " 
and " Dollie " — leaving only little " Nabby " and baby Zenas— he whose 
cripi)led manhood in after years was evidently one continued and heroic 
strugo-le with adversit^'V The father may be pictured to us sad and 
sedjite, with his eyes fixedly gazing out of the window, while the sweep- 
in cr gusts of early wnnter rattle the casements, and break and scatter 
the ice-mailed branches of the trees around the little yard of his 
" broken home." With Puritan fortitude he endeavors, though vainly, 
to keep back the tears that silently steal down his cheeks, while he speaks 
to the sobbing wife and mother, — crushed with their great grief, and worn 
and weary with watching and vigils by the bedsides of her darlings, — 
the well remembered words of Holy Writ, " The Lord gave and the Lord 
hath taken away — blessed be the" name of the Lord." There is no 
answer save a low moan and a fresh outburst of tears. Another Rachel 
indeed, mourning her first born children and refusing to be comforted. 
Will this all happen there again? God knows. And, reader, if it so 
hapiien, will consolation to the bereaved and sorrowing ones come to 
their bleeding heai-ts from words preserved from the flippant utterances 
of an Ingersoll, or rather from the precious promises to those that mourn, 
recorded in that Book he now scofts at and derides?

But the spring time followed, and while the birds were carroling- its 
return, another daughter was born and christened for her mother, 
Rachel. Within two years more, still another daughter gladdened the 
household, with the name of her great-grandmother, Persis. Two and a 
half years later, another son was born, and called Rufus. Was he, or his 
elder brother Zenas, named for the/ather or grandfather of the mother 
that bore them? Next a daughter Mary, who died in mid- winter, and 
was laid by the side of her little brothers and sister before attaining 
her seventh 3^ear; and lastly, Phebe, who grew to womanhood, married 
Ephraim Pearson, and waited and watched in vain for his return from sea, 
seven long years, with her family of four little ones, in their home in 
Manchester, Vermont. Was the name of the mother of Rachel, wife 
of Benj. Cleveland, 7ll/«r?/, and grandmother Phehe? 

Abigail, or " Nabby " Cleveland, was in her sixteenth year when little 
Mary, her sister, died, and was already engaged to young "Sam" Hovey, 
the son of a farmer living hard by in the adjoining town of Windham. 
Her musical talent was the wonder and delia^ht of the neio-hborhood, and 
her husband in after years used to say he had often heard her voice, 
while singing of a clear evening out of doors, a mile and a half away. 
Perhaps the hearing of the young lover was vecy acute at that particular 
period of his life. They were married in the autumn following the death 
of little Mary, and began the stormy voyage of life together in Wind- 
ham, Conn., to peacefully close it among the green hills of Orange 
county, Vermont. 

Elforts to obtain the exact date of the death of Benjamin Cleveland 
and his wife have jiroved futile. It is stated, however, that " grandma 
Cleveland " died when Rebecca Hovey^ was twenty years old, and 
" grandpa Cleveland " lived five years after her death. So it may 
be seen, according to this statement, that Rachel, wife of Benj. Cleve- 
land, d. in Lyme, N. H., in 1792, and he d. in East Brookfield, Vt., in 
1797. The compiler is sorry to state he can find no stone in the old 
burying grounds of either town to mark the respective places of buriah 
Perhaps I ought to say in this connection, that the old burial place, where 
the dust of the first settlers of Lyme, N. H., reposes, thickly covered 
(as it was when the writer visited the spot in 1876,) with underbrush and 
half-grown trees, with here and there a broken headstone, is simply a 
diso-race to the authorities of the town. Even the Aborio-lnes exhibited 
more care and respect for the burial place of their dead, than the Anglo- 
Saxons who are now in possession of the soil.

10. George Lewis, born Aug. 20, 1810 (not 1809). 

" It seemed foreordained that I should stay at home and take care of my 
parents, my only surviving brother having commenced the study of medicine the 
year that I was born. In 1831, 1 joined the Congregational Church in Lyme, N.H., 
and in 1883 the claims of the West began to press upon the Eastern churches, 
calling for their young people to go there as teachers and preachers. I had 
already felt a desire to become a minister, and had commenced study at Thetford 
Academy, Vt. In 1833, the Rev. J. J. Shipherd came from the West, and unfolded 
his plan for a colony and a college at Oberlin, Ohio. Many of the best members 
of our churches went thither as colonists, and I decided to go there to pursue my 
studies, leaving my sister Rhoda to bring home her husband, a young farmer, to 
take my place in caring for my parents. Reaching Oberlin in the autumn of 1833, 
I found it a small settlement composed of a dozen log houses and one frame 
building, in a dense forest, some six miles from any town. In 183(), I was married 
to the friend of my childhood, Miss Sarah G. Nelson, Mdio had removed with her 
friends to that place, and to whom I had been several years engaged. In 1837, 
while a member of the Theological class, I was licensed to preach, by the 
Loraine County Association ; and in 1838, ordained by the same body as a mis- 
sionary. In Nov., 1839, in company with several others, myself and wife went 
as missionaries to the emancipated negroes in the island of Jamaica, W. I. 
We were not sent by any society, but looked for our support to the people to 
whom we ministered. On the 1st of Feb. following \ny Avife died, and in Juij^, 
1842, I returned to this country, worn out with my labors in that climate, but 
hoping, after a season of rest, to be able to resume my Avork among that people 
to whom I had become greatly attached. But for the next four years, I was able to 
do but little except occasionally to present the case of those people to the churches 
and to individuals. In 1846, I received an appointment from the Am. Miss. 
Association to raise $0,000 for the Jamaica Mission. In the autumn of 1847, I 
became an Agent of the Foreign Evangelical Society in connection with Drs. 
Baird, Kirk and others, having my office in Boston. In 1819, Feb. 0, I married 
Miss Anna M. Sibley, of Providence, R. I., who died April 2nd, 1865. In May, 
1850, the Foreign Evangelical Society united with the American Protestant 
Society and the Christian Alliance, under the name of the American and Foreign 
Christian Union. From that time till the autumn of 1871, I remained with the 
Society as its Agent or District Secretary for New England, though in 1831 I 
spent six months in Europe, and at two dift'erent times made extensive tours 
through the South in the interests of the Society. Since the autumn of 1871, 
when I came to Bricksburg, N. J., my health has prevented me from occupying 
continuoiisl}' any post of arduous labor, but I have for a time acted as Agent for 
Lincoln University, and am at present Financial Agent of Am. and For. Cliristian 
Union, with special reference to raising money for its Evangelical work in 
France. In 1867, Aug. 8, I married Miss Olivia C. Marcy, of Providence, R. I., 
who acts as my confidential clerk or i>rivate secretary, else you could have got 
ncjthing out of me excejjt by word of mouth, for I do not ev(!n write out my 
sermons, much less a letter the length of this, as my head has always been too 
troublesome to allow of it. 

" You ask for a sketch of my father. I can «nly say I could easier write his 
biography than a sketch that would do him justice. Near the close of Ihe Revo- 
lutionary war his father was drafted into the army, and he though but seventeen 
years of age was accepted as his substitute. While acting as a scout he was 
taken prisoner near Lake Champlain, and carried to Quebec, Canada. Being in 
prison with an Englishman of education, who took pleasure in teaching him' 



A2>2)en(Ux, 101 



aritlmu'tic and surveying, a tliirst for learnin^^ more was awakened, and on his re- 
turn home, at the close ot'tlie war, lie commenced studying wit li Rev. Dr. Burton, 
Thett'ord, Vt., with a view to entering Dartmouth College. This was prevented 
hy the failure of his health, and he was employed by Government in surveying 
the new townships of Northern Vermont. Another beuetit of his soldier life and 
what appeared the misfortune of impiisonment, was his receij)t of a pension for 
life, which was continued to his widow after him. He was passionately fond of 
the business of surveying, and his apology for not writing me on his 80th birth- 
day was that Ac was out surceyi'iig. His sight, which had failed for years, had 
become strong again, and his hair retained its color, and thougli three miles from 
church, he often preferred walking to riding, for the sake of the exercise. 
Tliough settleel upon a farm, he was engaged in teaching during the winter for 
twenty-tive years, till most of his children had received their common school 
education. He usually held one or more town offices, and often assisted in the 
settlement of the estates of his neighbors and •friends. Thougli too doubtful of 
his own religious state to join the church till late in life, he was eminently a 
religious man, always maintaining jirayers in his family and in his school. He 
wastlie first Sunday School Superintendent I ever knew, and among the first in 
New Hampshire ; and continued his connection with the S. S. either as Supt. or 
teacher as long as he lived. His love for children increased with his j'ears, and 
he was greatly beloved liy them in return. Though a moderate drinker, as to the 
use of ardent spirits so universal in his day, he was one of the first to place him- 
self under the banner of total abstinence, giving up for the sake of others what 
he conceived to be the real advantages of a restricted use of such stimulants. 
In fine, he was a good man, and a just, and his memory is precious. He was the 
most honest, unselfish man I ever knew. If he erred at all, it was in loving his 
ueighbor better than himself — (a characteristic which has descended to some of 
his children. Mrs. H.) 

" I fear you find it hard work to get the matter you want for your book, but 
hope others have been more satisfactory people to inquire of than you have found 
me. If my nieces do not respond, I will try again, but I have directed them to 
Avrite to your address as the shortest and most direct way for 3^ou to get the infor- 
mation you wish for. 

" As'to my maternal ancestors, I never w^as acquainted with them and could n't 
say much in regard to them. I only remember going to my grandfather's funeral 
when I was four years okl, and that when rejiroved by my sister for not crying, I 
said, " I can't, because I have n't any pocket handkerchief." My grandmother 
lived to a great age. Most of their descendants went to the West, and are 
unknown to fame and me. * 

" This is all I can do at this time. 

" With kind regards, vours, 

"GEORGE LEWIS HOVEY." 

(By Mus. HovET.) 

Another sketch of Daniel Hovey,^ from the pen of his niece, Mrs. 
Ruth Hovey Sprague,' is here inserted, and will be no less interesting 
than the preceding one by his son. 

" Daniel, eldest son of elder Samuel and Abigail (Cleveland) Hovey, was born 
in Canterbury, Conn., July 24th, 1764. In his childhood or early youth his 
parents removed to the town of Lyme, N. H. 

" On the KJth of October, 1781, he, with four others, were sent on a scout from 
a fort in Corinth and were fired upon in the town of Jericho by a party of sixteen 
tories, some of whom were acquainted with, and had partaken of the hospitality 
of the family. One member of the scouting party was mortally wounded and 
died the next day. The scouts jumped into some high brakes and thick bushes, 
and hid themselves. Four of them were soon discovered, and three being asked 
in turn how many there were, answered '• four " ; when the fourth one was asked, 
being a very honest fellow, he answered " five." Thereupon search was made 

14 



102 Appendix. 



for the fifth, ;ind Daniel was discovered. On being ordered he at once gave up 
his arms, but he told me that for awhile he trembled excessivel3\ He said, " One 
said on hearing my account ' I would not have given up mj^ gun ' ; another, ' I 
would not have come from my cover ' ; but none of them know what they would 
have done." The leader of the tories shook him by the hand, inquired after the 
health of his father, and said if he had him there he would treat him. It appeared 
this tory was supposed to be a patriot, and had been told of the contemplated 
expedition of the scouts. 

" The four scouts were taken to Quebec and imprisoned ; Daniel being confined 
in the same cell with an elderly prisoner of good education, who had been for 
some years a teacher. They sold a part of their allowance of food, and bought 
paper and a few books, and at this seminary the ready scholar acquired a consider- 
able part of his education. They were permitted to exercise occasionally in 
making pickets under a guard, outside the prison walls. A charitable lady 
occasionally sent them a welcome present of some nice little dish as an addition 
to their prison fare. After a captivity of eleven months, his father received in- 
telligence that an exchange of prisoners had been made, and that the son was 
liberated. He went a day's journey to meet his footsore son, lent him the horse, 
and walked home by his side. 

"After the close of the war our scout married Beulah Pingree, a highly 
accomplished and very beautiful young lady, and settled on the banks of the 
Connecticut, in the town of Lyme, Grant's island being a part of his farm. In 
addition to his farming business, he taught in the district schools of the town 
more than twenty winters; filled nearly all olhces of honor and trust; was active 
in establishing a circulating library; was often chosen to settle differences among 
his neighbors and townsmen ; never had a lawsuit, and was " Uncle Daniel " to 
all, young or old, of his acquaintance. 

" Having for many years received from a grateful Government a pension for 
the patriotic services of his youth, and having lived to a good old age and seen 
his six children useful, beloved and respected, the dear old saint departed to that 
rest that remaineth to the people of God. 

"In stature he was short, had dark brown hair and blue eyes; was very un- 
assuming in his appearance, and in his countenance and manner of speaking 
resembled his mother more than any other of his children I ever knew. In his 
will he bequeathed a Bible to each of his grandchildren and one to his grand- 
nephew, D. H. Sprague, my younger sou. (Deceased.) 

" His elder son, Daniel, became a practicing physician in Lyme for many 
years, having been educated at Dartmouth College. 

" The younger son, his youngest child, became a minister of the gospel, and 
at one time was a missionary in the West Indies, subsequently laboring in the 
southern New England States. 

" His four daughters were highly intelligent, accomplished and beautiful 
women, one of whom, Elizabeth, was, I think, the most engaging lady whose 
acquaintance and friendship I ever enjoyed. She devoted several years of her 
life to teaching in New Hainpshire ; in Vermont, where I had the good fortune to 
be favored by lier instruction; and in Ohio, where she passed five years in 
teaching in several .schools and academies. 

"But excepting the youngest son and daughter they are all 'Beyond the 
river.' Peace to their ashes. I loved them well." 



It is said that Daniel Hovey ^ left among his papers a full and care- 
fully prepared account of his ancestry (Ilo-vei/s and Clevelands), but 
strangely enough no one now seems to know what became of the docu- 
ment after his decease. The following inscription upon his monument in 
the cemetery at Lyme, N. H., was prejjared in accordance with his wish : 

"Daniel Hovey, born in Windham, Conn., July 24, 1764, married Beulah 
Pingree, of Hanover, Feb. 18, ITS'J— by whom he had" four sous a 
Died March 2, 1850, aged 86."

A short sketch of Col. Lord is g-ivon on page 14, but the following 
obitviary notice at the time of his death is here inserted, as a just tribute 
to a brave and Christian soldier of the nation: 

" [Comimiuieatod. 
" THE LATE MAJOR RICHARD S. LORD. 

"Eds. Com. — Major Richard S. Lord, who died in Eellefontaine, Ohio, on the 
15th inst., deserves more than a passing notice. He was one of those working- 
soldiers, who, having no 'friend at court,' hadtodei)end upon his own resources, 
and stand upon his own merits in his conflict with the world, and he did it well. 

"Graduating at West Point creditably, he soon entered the cavahy arm of the 
service, for which he had a decided preference. Stationed for several years in 
New Mexico and Arizona, he was still in the far West when the civil war broke 
out. His record as a soldier is most honorable; he i)articipated in the following, 
amongst other conflicts, and in all those enumerated he was in command of his 
regiment — the 1st United States Cavalry: Val Verde, New Mexico, February 21, 
1862; Apache Ranche, March 8, 1862; Stoneman's raid against Richmond, April 
and May, 1808; Beverly Ford, Virginia, June 1), 18(;3; Aldie, June 18, 1863; 
Middleburgh, June 19, 1803; Uppervllle, June 21, 18(i3; Gettysburg, July 1 to 3, 
ls6o; Williamsport, Virginia, July 6, 1S63; Boousborough, Julj^ 7 and 8, 1863; 
Funktown, July 9, 1803; Dinwiddle Court House, March 30 and 31, 1865; Five 
Forks, April 1,1805; Sutherlanil Station, April 2, 1865; Bevil's Bridge, April 3, 
1865; Deacousville, the same day. 

" In all of these engagements Major Lord shone as a brave and skillful officer. 
He w^as painfully wounded at the battle of Funktown, and his conduct at the 
battle of Five Forks was the theme of the public commendation in all the news- 
papers of the laud, at the period when it was fought, and called out the special 
antl personal approval of Major General Sheridan, and was the occasion of his 
receiving brevet promotion. 

" After the surrender of General Lee, the First Cavalry w^as detailed as the 
escort of General Sheridan, Major Lord commanding. Upon this duty he con- 
tinued until ordered to California with his regiment, last winter. 

"Major Lord was high minded and most honorable in all his instincts. 
Knowing that 'thrift follows fawning,' he refused to humiliate himself to attain 
l)osition. He w^as always of the opinion that the high honor which only can 
gi\e self-respect, is the brightest gem that adorns the escutcheon of a soldier. 
Like all brave men he was tender hearted and abhorred cruelty; and he never 
forgot while in the line of his duty as a soldier, what was due to humanity. 

" His last illness was lingering and painful in the extreme; but he bore the 
bodily and mental anguish of c(msumption with calm courage and patient resig- 
nation. He was yet young, and had many ties that it was hard to sever. But 
throughout all, his voice was the most cheerful of any in his room: and long 
after lie knew the moorings of life were irrecoverably lost, and he was drifting 
out from sight and from sound, thus feeling and thus speaking, he entered, unaji- 
palled, the impenetrable mist. 

" He died a Christian. Leaving behind him his companions in arms, with 
many a longing, lingering look, he enlisted in a better and higher service, and 
became, as he iiimself exjiressed it, a soldier of the Cross. 

"Surely such a man deserves well of his country, and the tear of gratitude 
and atteetion, and the poor compliment of a public notice of his deeds and 
memory, but illy repay a life of toil and devotion to the interests of his country.

Under date of June 4, 1879, Rev. Horace N. Hovey closes a letter 
addressed to the compiler of this work, as follows: 

"As to myself I hardly know what to write, or what I wrote in my former 
letter. For some eight years after marriage I was a farmer in the town of 
Albany, Vt. Commenced in the ministry in 1843. In the spring of 1843 left 
the farm and removed to the village, in All)any, and entered upon the work of 
the ministry, and had the charge of the church most of the time until the fall 
of 1866. In that time I had the pastoral charge of the church in Newport for 
eight years — in Irasburgh for three years — preaching at these places one-half the 



134 Ap2'>endix. 



time and at Albany the other half. In July, 1876, I removed my family to 
Lowell, Vt., my present residence, having had the charge of the small Baptist 
Church here for nearly three years. Since July, 187(5, my labors have continued 
here unbroken, except the time for rest on a journey to visit friends in Illinois, 
and some three months in the summer of 1874, to visit my daughter in River 
Falls, Wis. 

"I shall be highly gratified to receive any sheets of your forthcoming 
volume, and as highly pleased to render any service you may wish in my power. 
Mail time has come, and I close in haste. 

Your cousin truly, 

HORACE NELSON HOVEY." 

Mrs. Ruth Hovey Sprague, of East Brookfield, Vt., furnishes the 
following sketch of this family: 

" Rufus Cleveland Hovey, fourth child of Elder Samuel and Abigail (Cleveland) 
Hovey, was born A. D. 1770, and married Grrace Billings, with whom he resided 
in the town of Brookfield, Vt. , where he died at the age of 40, leaving a widow with 
nine children, the youngest being an infant daughter. His eldest son, Billings, 
assumed the care of the family, honoring his father by his affectionate care of 
his mother, brothers and sisters. To see Billings bring his infant sister to the 
Sabbath services, and phice her tenderly in the mother's arms, was pleasant; and 
a gratified smile, chased by a tear, would pass round the circle, seated on those 
same long benches. 

" But two years after the death of the father, both mother and infant fell 
victims to the same fever that was fatal to tlie husband and father. Billings in 
the meantime had married a wortby lady. Miss Polly Kendall, and brought her 
into the family. She remarked, after the death of the mother, that if she was 
ever to marry Billings she married him at the right time, for she had learned how 
to manage the family. 

"In the family were two young men, Orange and Silas; besides Rhoda, 
Simeon, Asaliel, Laura and Horace; these five having for guardians their uncles, 
Samuel and Alvan, who resided within a quarter of a mile on either side. This 
large family, in additicm to their own children, Billings and Polly cared for and 
educated to the satisfaction of both guardians and wards. 

"At this time Billings was not a professor of religion, but his wife was a 
pious lady. There being great interest felt in the community on the subject of 
religion, evening meetings were frequently held, and 'Polly,' being very anxious 
for her husband, had arranged with a younger member of the family to stay at 
home and care for the children, that Billings might accompany her on this even- 
ing to a meeting at Uncle Samuel's. This, Billings declined, and she went with- 
out him, praying as she went. After she had gone, Billings concluded to go 
privately, as it was now dark. He and Uncle Samuel's son, Willis, who had also 
absented himself from the meetings, crept silently into an adjoining room to 
listen to the exercises. Now, there were among the praying brethren, two, viz.. 
Uncle Samuel, and Deacon Edward Sprague, who were especially gifted in prayer 
— (an eccentric person said, ' When they pray, how the blessings shell down,') — 
and on this evening their petitions seemed more solemn and weighty than usual. 
Before their prayers were finished, behold! the door opened; Billings and Willis 
walked into the room, fell on their knees, acknowledged their sins, begged for 
and obtained pardon. Billings retired for the night, and I have heard him say 
he heard a sound like a heavy stone falling and rolling across the room; and 
these words, ' Whoso falleth on this stone shall be broken, but on whomsoever it 
shall fall, it shall grind him to powder.' To all human appearance, perhaps few 
have lived a more Christian life. 

" His brothers and sisters coming to maturity, he sold the farm which had 
been his father's, divided to each child his patrimony, removed fifty miles north 
to the town of Albany, where land was cheap, and made himself a new home. 
To this place his brothers and one sister gathered, and with his own sons made a 
new ' Hovey neighborhood.' There, his death occurred many years after, and 



Appendix. l^io 



the news passed iu Brookfield, ' Uood brother Billings has gone.' His aged 
widow still resides among her children iu Albany. 

" Of Uncle Rufus I can say little. All I remember of him is attending his 
funeral. My mother was much attached to lum, and often spoke of him very 
aiiectiouately. His youngest son has been a minister of the Gospel, and has 
preached in Lowell, Vt., many years. 

"Another item or two of Uncle Daniel: His grandson, Sylvanus Hibbard, 
tells me that when he was surveying the towns in the eastern part of the State, he 
lost his knife, and, having his pen to mend, he mended it with his hatchet. At 
one time he walked from his home iu Lyme to Brookfield, to visit his father's 
family, ou the frozen snow crust, iu company with another man. It could not 
have been less than twenty-eight or thirty miles — a good day's work. 

" I know scarcely anything of Uncle Abner. Probably you have received his 
history from Mrs. Woodworth. li. H. SPRAGUE."

Ohio, July 5, 1835, Rev. Oliver Atwood, son of James and Elizabeth 

(McAllister) Atwood. He was b. in Vermont, ,1808; a Methodist 

minister, whose missionary zeal prompted him to remove, in July, 1837, 
to the territory of Iowa, to make a home for his family and act as local 
preacher in that portion of the far West. In the latter part of the 
month of August, 1838, he left home with the expectation of being- 
absent about four weeks, his objective point being some foi*ty miles 
distant. Not returning at the expiration of the time specified, his wife 
and friends became alarmed about him, and, on making inquiries, found 
that he had been at the Indian village (now Iowa City) some ten days 
before on his way home, and had purchased at the store there articles for 
the use of his family. Upon this intelligence, the neighbors turned out 
en tnasse, to search for him, the place where he was last seen alive being 
about ten miles only from his residence. His body was discovered, bear- 
ing the evident marks of tomahawk and scalping knife, and torn and 
mangled by beasts of prey. No doubt existed that he had fallen a 
harmless and unoffendino' victim to savage barbarity, and it was 
thought he had been killed to atone for the death of a prominent brave 
of the tribe, at the hands of a man by the name of Ross, who had been 
arrested for the deed, broke jail, and escaped out of the country. But 
Indian vengeance must be satisfied, and one pale face is as good as 
another to the red man of the forest, to wipe out his real or fancied 
wrongs. The date of Rev. Oliver Atwood's sad death was Sept. 
20, 1838. His widow returned to her friends in Ohio, and m. third, in 
Sherman, Huron county, Ohio, Aug. 21, 1839, Hiram Atwood, a brother

of her Uncle Samuel : 

" Samuel Hovey, the sixth child of Elder Samuel and Abigail C. Hovey, was 
born Oct, 20, 1774, and married Amy Billings, a sister of Grace, who was wife to 
his brother Rufus. He was a man of middling stature, had, like the other mem- 
bers of the family, blue eyes and brown hair, was of a social, friendly nature, and 
was very much respected by the community and beloved by his family. He was 
honored by the Legislature of tlie State with the appointment to the office of 
Justice of the Peace. It fell to his lot to care for his aged parents during many 
years of their age and infirmities, which duty he fulfilled to the entire satisfac- 
tion of the family. He was a kind husband, a tender parent, and a dutiful son, 

" He was for many years a prominent member of the Baptist Cliurch, which 
his influence and example helped to sustain. 

"He was twice married, his second choice being a maiden lady, Phyletta 
Kendall, a sister of that Polly who was wife of his nephew, Billings. At his 
death he left two sons and a daughter by his first wife, and two daughters, the 
children of his widow.

Oh.^klestown, Tenn.. .May 'J, IHtU. 

"De.\r Cousin: 

" I have just received your letter dated March 27th. I am the son and ouiy 
surviving child of your uncle Abiel Hovey, who left Vermont in 1818 or 1819, and 
settled in Indiana. One letter written to me by my uncle Alvin is all that I 
have ever received from the family until the arrival of yours. 

"My father died in 1823, leaving my mother with seven children — Fanny, 
Eliza, Amanda, Charlotte, Charles, Minerva and myself, then less than three 
years of age. My mother died in 1836, and my sisters are all dead; and all Init 
Fanny and Amanda leaving families. My only brother Charles was killed last 
Januarjr, a year ago, by a cannon. He also leaves a family. Our residences are 
at Mount Vernon, Indiana. 

" My wife died last October, leaving me two children — a daughter Essie, now

finishing her education at Madam Hoffman's School in the city of New York, 
and my son Charlie who is at school in Evansville, Indiana. 

"I am now at Charlestown, Tenn., in command of the 1st Division of the 
23rd Army Corps, which will move in the morning in the direction of Dalton, 
where we soon expect to have a severe battle. My history is known in the West, 
and if you should have any curiosity in regard to it, I trust you will find that 
our common name has never suffered by any conduct of mine. 

"I truly thank you for the information that you have so kindly furnished me 
in regard to our family. I trust that I shall some day be able to visit my father's 
family and see my relatives. I have never yet met even a cousin of my father's 
family. My regards to all my kindred who may feel an interest in my welfare. 

Yours truly, 

ALVIN P. HOVEY. "

Mrs. Sprague contributes the following sketch of the family : 

"Alvan Hovey, eighth child of Elder Samuel and Abigail C. Ho vey, was- 
born March 8, 1779. 

" Some of his childish sayings have been preserved by tradition in the family. 
When a very little fellow, his father, being absent in the patriot army during the 
Revolutionary war, wrote to his mother ; and she, while reading the letter, shed 
tears over it. Little Alvan looked up, full of sympathy, saying : " What 'oar (roar) 
for, mammy V Daddy home." When, a few j^ears older, he had been guilty of 
some childish fault," his vexed father approached him rather hastily, Alvan 
looked on all sides and petitioned, ' Please, sir, don't knock me over that stump ! ' 
When, older still, being at school, the teacher at different times gave leave to the 
scholar at the foot of the class to pronounce a word for the class to spell, and 
whoever could spell it was to stand at the head of the class, Alvan, being at 
the foot, had leave to name a word to the class. 'Spell cotton.' Commencing 
at the head, the word went through the class, and, according to Alvan, was 
missed by each in turn. The teacher says: "Alvan, you must spell it yourself." 
' W-o-r-s-t-e-d ; oh! it is worsted.' And Alvan marched to the head of his class, 
without farther invitation. 

" He married Nancy Seabury, a lady of a very respectable family, by whom 
he had four daughters and one son. The son died of fever at the age of eleven 
years. Subseciuently he lost a pair of male inftmts, which caused the sorrowing- 
father to exclaim, 'A living son is too great a blessing for me.' He received 
into his family, at different times, several sons of other people, whom he edu- 
cated and clothed, and received their labor on his farm till their majority. He 
was for many years a deacon in the Baptist Church and a highly respectable 
member of the community. He Avas the inventor of a horse rake, for which the 
Government granted him a patent. 

" His wife having died, he married the widow Bean, who was a daughter of 
Oliver and Rachel (Cleveland) Hamblin, being his own cousin. After his death 
she received an annuity from his estate during the remainder of her life. His 
daughters were eminently beautiful and accomplished ladies, three of whom are 
still living. He was an uncommonly handsome man, with a sedate smile on 
his face and his long white hair curling over his shoulders. He, as well as his 
mother, brothers and sisters, were very sweet singers, as were nearly all of the 
Hovey name ; but that agreeable accomplishment was entirely denied to the 
venerable elder, as well as to myself

Rev, Oliver D. Hibbard,' of Wyandotte, Mich., writes, in answer to 
inquiries, the following, which is given entire: 

" Your double favor, bearing date the 17th inst., has just come to hand. 
Contents being noted, I snatch the fugitive moments as I can to say that in Octo- 
ber, 1833, I left my old New England home, and pushed westward, leaving moun- 
tains and valleys, rocks and rivers, and childhood's friends behind. Slowly the 
images photographed on the inner tablet of my soul faded, and i)resent scenes 
and engrossments commanded all the view. For awhile letters came and went, 
but the intervals grew longer and longer. New scenes sprung up around me, 
and new friends knocked at my door. New songs fell on my ear — new sights — 
new forms of beauty looked at me on every hand, and challenged and transfixed 
my gaze. Once — ^just once — I wended my way back to the storm-beaten cliffs of 
my native North, to see my mother, my only brother, my three sisters — two of 
whom were in the h(mse where they were born, and one two miles only distant — 
to see my uncles, and aunts, and cousins, and my father's and grandparents' 
graves. It had been fourteen years from the time of my leaving. I preached 
every Sabbath, and the graves preached also. 

" Soon after my return to my pastorate in Western New York, my mother 
and my brother died of bilious typhus fever, within twenty days of each other. 

" By and bye the muttering thunders began to rumble, the pulse of the nation 
to beat faster and faster, and anon the whole land rocked in the fearful storm. You 



146 Appendix. 



know the dreadful story. Perhaps you went to the front. My first commission 
was dated May 8, 1861, Chaplain of the G4th N. Y. Regt., and on September 16th 
following I was ordered to report immediately for duty at Elmira, N. Y. I was 
with my regiment through thick and thin until about the middle of October, 
1864, when I applied for a discharge and was mustered out. In December fol- 
lowing, I came to Wyandotte, and — here I am. 

" Believe that I remain as ever, yours, O. D. HIBBARD. 

" P. S. — I wish, before I close, to bear my humble testimony to the excel- 
lences of my venerated grandmother Hovey, formerly Abigail Cleveland. She 
was remarkable for truthfulness, patience and piety — in fact, for every domestic 
and Christian virtue. In all the sweet and gentle graces of perfect womanhood, 
she stood in her humble walks and ways as a grand exemplification. My mother, 
named for her, inherited many of her attributes, with a splash of her father's 
fire and irritability. I think my grandmother had a brother Zenas — what do 
you know of him ? She had a sister, wife of Oliver Hamblin, of Brookfield, Vt. 
Have you traced that branch ? O. D. H." 

Another of Mrs. Sprague's admirable sketches is added: 

" Abigail Hovey, ninth child of Elder Samuel and Abigail C. Hovey, was born 
Dec. 25, 1780. She was married in Brookfield, Vt., to Oliver Hibbard, whose 
parents were emigrants from Connecticut. She and her husband resided on a 
small farm in the vicinity of their respective parents, suflering the hardships and 
enjoying the pleasures incident to the dwellers in a new settlement. They were 
frequent attendants at Sabbath worship in the school house, with the long 
benches, and many are the times they have ridden to the meetings — about a mile 
on one horse, with each a child in arms. As their family increased in num- 
bers, the parents and children rode together in a common farm-cart, drawn by a 
yoke of oxen ; for pleasure carriages were then unknown in the community, or 
were few in number. She always seemed to feel the presence of poverty very 
sensibly, endeavoring to compel limited means to make a respectable appearance. 
Although an excellent cook, she was accustomed to disparage the fare set before 
her friends and family. Her pious husband's answer usually was : ' It is good 
enouo-h for saints ; too good for sinners.' She was large in form — would prob- 
ably weigh 180 or more ; was extremely quick and sensitive in her feelings, and 
resembled her father in features and mental character, more than her mother. 
She was quick, active and diligent in household occupations — a very neat 
housekeeper. 

" Of her ten children, seven lived to maturity, and many are the hours under 
the paternal roof that their voices have made sweet music together. About the 
year 1833, her husband died of dropsy, bequeathing to her their pleasant home 
and whatever property he possessed. She died of fever, at more than seventy 
years of age. Both her sons were excellent teachers ; the oldest, Oliver Davison, 
afterwards became a minister of the Gospel, and settled in the West; Wm. 
Lewis, the younger son, devoted the last years of his life to commercial pursuits, 
and died at Mo'ntpelier, of a fever, leaving three children, the younger son, 
Oliver, being the only one now living. Two daughters, out of those ten children, 

are still living.

Concerning- her own parents Mrs. Sprague contributes the following 
interesting account: 

"Elizabeth Perkins Hovey, tenth child of Elder Samuel tmd Abigail C. 
Hovey, was born on Grant's Island, in Connecticut river, containing sixty acres 
of excellent land. A slight bluft' near the centre of the island was adorned by 
a house and barn, to one of which u canoe was fastened during times of high 
water — all of the remaining land being submerged. At the time of her birth, 
April 15, 1783, the ice of the river being deeply covered with water, and rajtidlj" 
thawing, tiie company invited on the occasion were carried across on men's 
shoulders. The family remained in this island home till her ninth year, and the 
little fishes were among her earliest playthings. She deliglited to feed them 
with crumbs of bread and bits of meat, and her brothers, designing to terrify 
her, caught her and tossed her into the water, but instead of being terrified, she 
was delighted. 

" From the island, the fumily removed to Norwich, Vt., and at the age of 
twelve, they again removed to Brooktield. Here she became a pupil in a little 
log school house, which was afterwards burned. Her hcidth during three years 
was very delicate, and she was believed l\y her family to be in a confirmed con- 
sumption ; but at the age of eighteen it greatly improved, and a journey on horse- 
back, with a change of air and diet, confirmed it. 

"At the age of nineteen she formed a contract of marriage with Gurdon Hib- 
bard, a brother of Oliver, he being one year her senior; but constant labor as a 
journeyman carpenter destroyed his health, and he was pronounced bj^ liis ])liy- 
sicians, after a year of medical treatment, to be in a hopeless consumption. But 
he was not hopeless. He performed a journey on horseback to Saratoga S])rings, 
in the State of New York, in opposition to the strenuous advice of liis family, 
they never expecting to see him come back alive. After drinking the water a 
few weeks, his racking cough abated, and his violent night sweats disappeared. 
After his recoverj'^, he bought fifty acres of land near his father, built himself a 
barn, set out an orchaid, and was finally married, on Dec. 25, 1809, after an 
engagement of seven years; her father officiating at the ceremony, and present- 
ing her a Bible as a wedding gift. The ne.\t day she rode behind her husband 
on horseback to his father's, about three-fourths of a mile, in a part of whose 
house they made a temporary home while he should build himself a house. 

" Her furniture consisted of two tables, two chests of drawers, six kitchen 
chairs and a rocking chair, two bedsteads, a large wheel, a linen wlieel, a quill 
wheel, reel and swifts manufactured by her father, a looking glass, and some 
necessary crockery. She had devoted some years to sewing, making men's 
clothing, which was as lucrative as any employment for young women, at thai 
time; she was therefore able to furnish beds with bedding, sheets and pillow 
cases, also very beautiful table cloths and towels of her own manufacture. 

"Her wedding cloak was of scarlet broadcloth, reaching nearly to her feet, 
the body, armholes, cape and standing collar trimmed with silk velvet ribbon, 
nearly three inches wide; her bonnet, black velvet, witli very little trimming; 
and, no doubt she was thought to make a. very respectable appearance on a pil- 
lion. She had very deep blue eyes — they passed for black in the evening — dark 
brown hair, a very full forehead, and a fair skin. She was taller than any of her 
sisters, and weighed at her marriage (as did her husband), just one hundred and 
sixty pounds. 

"She was a splendid singer, the best of the family, equal to her mother, She 
sang, in her girlhood, more than sixty songs, and I have heard that while sing- 
ing 'The Exile of Erin,' tears would fall fast from the eyes of the company of 



Appendix. 151 



auditory, excited by llie music and the patlios of the soug. Her children were 
indifferent singers,' but her husband liad a very fine cultivated voice; her grand- 
children and g'reat-graudchildrcn are some of them excelled only by her. There 
was mu^ic indeed when the husband and wife, by their own fireside, their chil- 
dren for auditors, sung the old fugue tunes which were then passing_ out of use 
among the people, l)nt have sometimes returned, and been popular with musical 
choirs. 

" By close economy they were enabled to make at different times additions to 
the farm, till it numbered between two and three hundred acres; to build two 
additional barns and a very convenient farm house. Her husband, a few years 
after marriage, introduced, the first Spanish merinoes into the town, having 
bought a pair of lambs for one hundred dollars of Wm. Jarvis, late Consul from 
the United States to Spain. Two spinners were hired two or three months in the 
summer, and, some years as many as two hundred pounds of wool were manu- 
factured into cloth, she doing the weaving; the cloth, when dressed, compared 
favorably with imported broadcloth, and commanded one dollar and a half to 
two dollars per yard. These spinners worked in the room where she and her 
little daughters were performing the houseiiold work for the family. "While the 
work went on, beautiful hymnsVere sung, and there was much happiness under 
a ver}^ humble roof. 

"After fourteen years of married life, their sou and six daughters having 
been taught, began to take the places of hired laborers, and in the succeeding 
years mother and daughters performed music on wheels and loom, which, if not 
equal to the piano, yet had a very cheerful sound, and besides helped to render 
the family comparatively independent. The long evenings of winter were passed 
with a table in the centre of the room, the mother and daughters employed in 
knitting or sewing, at the same time listening to the vocal reading of the father, 
who was extremely fond of books. 

" The oldest daughter married at the age of nineteen, the third went to reside 
in New Hampshire with a cousin, and the second was about to follow to New 
Hampshire as a teacher; the mother's heart began to feel bereaved. Her cry 
was, 'Joseph is not, Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin also.' But swiftly 
passed the fleeting years. All the children departed to other homes, excepting 
the third daughter, who returned to the paternal roof, and relieved the mother of 
her burden of labor while moving down the vale of years. Finally, at the age of 
eighty-one, after one day's illness, she folded her tired hands, gently closed her 
eyes and breathed her latest breath, and slept fliat sleep which seemed more like 
translation than death. 

"Her daughters, with loving hands, robed the sacred remains for burial, and 
she rests in hope of a glorious immortality. Her husband survived her eight 
years, a most di.sconsolate mourner. He said to his daughter, 'There has been 
no day that I have not thought of her.' During all the years of their married 
life she had been the chief company he sought, had been consulted in all busi- 
ness affairs, and although a feeble woman in health, had borne her full share of 
the family burdens. I never knew a more conscientious person. She was wor- 
thy of all the confidence and affection she received from him and her children. 

" Like all her sisters whom I have seen she resembled her father in features, 
but, more than any, she resembled her mother in the qualities of her mind. In 
all her work she was extremely nice, ' so exquisite with her needle.' Six of her 
children survived her; and in'hope of meeting her in a world where is no death, 
we laid her in that cemetery where her parents and daughter, and many other 
relatives are laid, and where, eight years after, we laid her husband by the side 
of her who was the choice of his youth.

The subjoined sketch of the matei-nal grandparents of Mrs. Ruth 
Hovey Sprague concludes Appendix E: 

"To rescue from oblivion, even for a brief period, the memory of those we 
love, is a solace and a pleasure. This sentiment prompts me to ])en a brief sketch 
of my grandmother, Abigail Cleveland, wife of Rf?v. Samuel Hovey. She was 
born in Connecticut about the year 1746, aud married at the early age of seven- 
teen, her husband being three years her senior. Their first children were born 
in Canterbury, Conn., from which place they removed to Lyme, N". H., and on 
Grant's Island, in Connecticut river, several of the youngest of thirteen 
children were born, and here her aged parents found a home and that tender care 
which only a devoted daughter can bestow. 



156 Appendix. 



" In 1791, the family removed to Norwich, Vt., and one year thereafter her 
aged mother died. 

" In 1794, they removed to Broolvfield, Vt., bringing witli them her aged and 
intirm father, for -vvhom slie filially cared till his death in 1797. Few daughters 
have been privileged to care for a parent as she for her father, his state of mind 
and body requiring almost constant attention, which was given lovingly and 
cheerfully. Her husband was much from home, laboring with the churches 
in adjoining towns, holding meetings in school houses, dwelling houses and 
barns, for church edifices were in that new country few and far between. Her 
large family, which somt times numbered sixteen persons, with the labor of clear- 
ing away forests and cultivating a large farm, mnnufacturinir woolen and linen 
cloth for the family, was directi d by her and her children. They planted a very 
large orchard, which remains to this day, built the first cider mill, and literally 
made the desert blossom. Many are the times she, her neighbors, and her chil- 
dren, have, on Sunday morninsrs, dressed themselves in their clean homespun 
clothing, and, taking their shoes in their hands, walked barefoot for miles to 
some neighboring town to join in public worsliip under the preaching of the 
husband, father and neighbor. No such thing as a carriage, or scarcely a decent 
carriage-road, was then and there known. ' Elder Hovey' never made charges 
for preaching, and sometimes when a nice little present was given him, he would 
ride his old horse towards home till he came to a home poorer than his own, then 
the present was sure to be left. In process of years the original log liouse gave 
place to a 'framed' one, abetter barn was built, a school house soon followed, 
and thrifty New England homes multiplied on every side. 

"Their two oldest sons they left settled in New Hampshire, and those who 
came as little children married and settled around them, till all the twelve (one 
died in infancy) had gone from their home. Subsequently two daughters and 
one son removed to Ohio, and one son to Indiana; three sons — Rufus C. , Samuel 
and Alvan — settled on farms adjoining their parents; and two daughters, Abigail 
and Elizabeth, married brothers, Oliver and Gurdon Hibbard, and also resided 
near. 

" Having reared all their children in habits of industry, morality and Chris- 
tian principles, their old age is quiet and peaceful, as they sit in their snug little 
cottage, enjoying the fruit of their labor. 

"Mrs. Hovey was eminently a woman of peace, possessing 'the soft answer 
that turneth away wrath,' always excusing when others accused; one of those 
who never have an enemy. 

" Samuel Hovey, Esq., their sixth child, cared for them many years of their 
advanced age, providing them a cottage and sending their meals prepared foi- the 
table, and finally hiring a young woman (who afterwards married his son) to 
supply those attentions their increasing infirmities required. She often said, 
' Samuel's wife could not be kinder to me if she were my own daughter.' On one 
occasion, their school house having been burned, a school meeting was held in 
her dwelling house to agree upon a site for rebuilding. In the course of some 
controversy on the subject her son Abiel exclaimed, ' It makes my blood boil ! ' 
'Ah! ' said his mother, ' It is Hovey; he can't help it.' 

"Elder Hovey continued to preach to extreme old age, and I have his picture 
distinctly before my mind's eye, standing behind a table in our school house, his 
white hair falling over his shoulders, his rudd^^ face and full blue eyes; preach- 
ing to an assembly perhaps half of whom were his children and grandchildf-en ; 
his little old lady of a wife sitting near him in the only chair the room could 
boast of, wearing her blue print dress — the best the times aflbrded — wearing her 
black bonnet, and gently waving a large black fan ; the audience seated on long- 
benches around the room. She died at the age of about 87, and he at the age of 
91. The church edifice and cemetery occupy a part of wliat was the farm he 
bought on coming to Brookfield. In that most pleasant of rural burial places 
they sleep side by side; here sleep four of their children, and almost a multitude 
of their grandchildren and other relatives.

F. 

The following letter from Rev. C. P. Wing, D. D., of Carlisle, Pa., 
is given entire, hoping that its publication may lead to the discovery 
of these " lost tribes " : 

" Carlisle, Sept. 12, 1877. 
"H. G. Cleaveland: 

■' JSir — Yours of Aug. 30 reached my home while I was absent. I returned this 
week, and after consulting my notes relating to family history, I can find no one 
of the name of Cleaveland who has married into the Wing connection, and yet I 
have a vague recollection of meeting with some record of the kind among the 
letters in my possession. If on resuming the writing of our family history, (a 
work whicli I am expecting at some indefinite day), I should find anything on the 
sul)ject, I will bear it in mind, and send you an account of it. The name of 
Bm-gess (of Maine, 1790,) occurs once or twice with respect to some distant con- 
nection. The name of Freeman often occurs in our genealogies. It was derived 
first from the Freeman family of Orleans on Cape Cod, who removed to Rochester, 
N. Y., which married into ours. My father, who was born at Cimway, Hamp- 
shire county, ]\Iass., had a half-brother named Freeman (by a third wife named 
Jane Trescott,) Avho settled early in life at La oMine, near Boonville, Cooper Co., 
Missouri, married there and had seven sons and five daughters, an account of 
whom I have. I had also a brother named Freeman Snow, (who was drowned in 
a well at Phelps, N. Y., at about the age of 22), whom my father named after the 
half-brother above named, and his grandmother of the ISnow family. I had an 
uncle who resided aAvhile at Wilmington., Vermont, and afterwards at Charlemont, 
Franklin Co., Mass. Another uncle (James) lived at Hinsdale, Berkshire Co., 
Mass., who was the father of Dr. Joel Wing, an eminent physician in Albany, 
N. Y., who died a few years since, leaving children and grandchildren there. 
These are all whom I find in my notes, corresponding in any way to the ''hints " 
you wrote me, and which ofter anything on which to pursue the investigation. 
I have, however, a mass of letters and papers, that on reperusal may give some 
further hints, Avhicli I will give you when obtained. Should you be able to trace 
connection with any of those I have mentioned, or with the Wings of Coneaut, 
Ohio, of Monroe, Michigan, or of Phelps, Ontario county, New York, I should 
be pleased to have it communicated to me, as I am collecting all I can obtain of 
family history. 

Yours very truly, C. P. WING." 

"P. S. My mother's name was Mary Oliver, whom my father married at 
Conway, Mass., and who died at a town up the Muskingum, twelve miles from 
Marietta, Ohio, where my father then resided, but from which he removed to 
Phelps, N. Y., about 1815. C. P. W." 

In the " Cushman family " Genealogy there is a statement that one 
William Cushman, son of William and Mary (Weaver) Cushman — b. 
inCastleton, Vt., March 0, 1772 — m. in Coxsackie, Greene count}-, N. Y., 
Betsay (Jlevdand. Her parentage, however, or date and place of birth, 
is not given. This William Cushman was a blacksmith, and died in 
Castleton, Vt., in 1850, without children. His wife, after the death of 
her husband, went to hei- friends in the State of Pennsylvania, but 
exactly where they resided is not learned. Though possible, it is not 
probable, that this Betsey Cleveland was the daughter of Zenas and 
Eunice (Ludington) Cleveland. The compiler examined the old records 
of Brookfield, Vt., and in reference to Zenas Cleveland,^ it ajipears that 
21 



158 Appendix. 



he had a son James, b. there, Oct, ;3U, 1784, and who died Aug. 10, 
1786 — also a daughter Anna (birth not recorded), who died Aug. 5, 
1786 ; these are the " two youngest children " of Zenas, whose deaths are 
referred to in the letter of "Benjamin and Rachel Cleaveland" on 
page 10. 

It also appears by the records at Brooktield, Vt., that one Zenas 
Cleveland sold and conveyed to Francis Thompson, Jan. 19, 1790, 74 
acres of land " for the consideration of Forty pounds L. M."" [lawful 
money.] And also, on the 8th of March, 1791, he sold and conveyed to 
Joseph Collins, physician, of Berlin, Vt., 1 60 acres of land '' for the 
considei-ation of One hundred and fifty pounds L. M." 

As before stated, from this date all traces of Zenas° and his family 
are lost until accidentally found by his nephew, James C. Cleveland,'' 
about 1811, in Sullivan county, N. Y. The descendants of Zenas,* so 
far as found, I was sorry to observe, had very little knowledge of even 
their near relatives, much less of their ancestors, paternal or maternal. 

Mr. Thomas Acklain, a merchant in Bethel, Sullivan county, N. Y., 
writes as follows (Jan. 3, 1877), in reference to inquiries concerning the 
family of Zenas Cleveland, who once lived in that neighborhood: "I 
learn from Joseph Peck, who is 79 years old, that William Peck, his 
father, who has been dead nearly 40 years, leased a j)iece of land to 
Zenas Cleveland, and after remaining on it a short time, he left and went 
West. He recollects very well, he says, when Cleveland left, for his father 
bought Cleveland's horse. As to the family he thinks Cleveland had 
two daughters. He also says, that Zenas Cleveland worked for his father, 
William Peck, one summer." 

Later, (Feb. 16, 1877), Mr. Ackiam writes: "In regard to Zenas 
Cleveland, I think I haveoiven vou all the information I can. Mr. Peck 
says that Cleveland was a lame shoemaker, and that he had two children. 
Mrs. Charles DeKay, a very old lady and resident here, says she was 
acquainted with the family, and that Zenas Cleveland was lame and a 
shoemaker, had a wife and two children — a boy and a girl — and thinks 
the girl's name was Flora, the name of the boy she does not remember. 
She recollects of the family leaving for the West, but don't know to what 
place thev went. ]t would appear that there was no one here they ever 
corresponded with. This has left it so it is difficult, if not impossible, to 
get anv trace of descendants of the family. If yovi can think of any- 
thing more that I can do for you, let me know and I will attend to it." 

In reference to the supposed daughter Flora, the c(jmpiler thinks it 
possible there were other children born to Zenas Cleveland, by wife 
Eunice, than those given on page 21. But bereavements and frequent 
removals, loss of property and straitened circumstances, operated to 
scatter and gradually alienate the children of this unfortunate couple, 
and it is almost impossible now to gather and restore the bi'oken links of 
this genealogical chain worn and rusty with the dreary waste of many 
vears. Any additional information concerning this branch, however, will 
be thankfully received and acknowledged by the writei-. 



Appendix. 159 



Thomas Burgess,' the pioneer ancestor of the "• Burg-ess " families in 
New England, arrived in Salem, Mass., from England, with a young- 
family about the year 1630, and lodged for a time at Lynn. A section 
of land was assigned him, July 3, 1637, in that part of Plymouth called 
Duxbury, but this section of land being forfeited by his removal to Sand- 
wich the same year, it was assigned to Nicholas Robbing, Nov. o, 1638, 
who made to the former occupant some remuneration for fences and 
culture. 

In process of time he became a large landholder, and with advancing 
age he was called Goodman Burgess. He served the town in every office 
humble or honorable, from road-surveyor to deputy to the Coui't at 
Plymouth, for several successive years. 

There is a charm in the fact that the patriarchal estate has never been 
alienated from the family. Benjamin — the founder of the commercial 
house of Benjamin Burgess & Sons, Boston — a lineal descendant of the 
sixth generation, held it in his possession, and in 1863 could point out 
the old cellar in which Thomas stored his fruits, and the bubbling fountain 
from Avhich he drank for forty-eight years — djdng Feb. 13, 1685, aged 
82 years. His gi-ave was honored with a monument slab, imported from 
England. " This was the only monument," says Amos Otis, Esq., " set' 
up for any pilgrim of the first generation. Dorothy, his wife, also died in 
Sandwich, Mass., Feb. 27, 1687. 

The descendants of Thomas Burgess, thousands in number, are dis- 
persed from Maine to California. They are chiefly devoted to agricul- 
tural pursuits, many navigate the seas. Some are employed in the 
mechanic arts, and others are found in the medical, clerical and legal pro- 
fessions. As a race they hold fast their moral and religious integrity. — 
(Extracts from '•^ Burgess Family Genealogy.'''') 

The children of Thomas and Dorothy Burgess were five in nimiber, 
as follows: 

1. Thomas,'^ b. about 1626; d.

Jacob Burgess,* the third son of Thomas' helped to repair the 
meeting-hovise in 1654, and was early a member of the church. He 
served the town for many years in the subordinate offices of surveyor, 
constable, and grand juror. He took the oath of allegiance in 1657. He 
inherited, in behalf of his son Thomas,' the paternal estate in Sand- 
wich, while the other brothers removed, Thomas," to Newport, John,* to 
Yarmouth, and Joseph,- to Rochester. He was one of the executors of 
his father's will. He m. Mary, daughter of Benjamin Nye, June 1, 1670, 
who died June 23, 1706. He d. March 17, 1719.

The following, from a daughter of Folsom and Nancy (Hamblin) 
Bean, should have a place in these i-ecords: 

"Enfieu), N. H., April 20, 1878. 
Deah Cousin: 

" Mauy thanks for your photograph. We prize it highly, and hope to see the 
original as soon as you can spare the time to visit us. I will now endeavor to 
give you what information I can concerning my mother's parents, Oliver and 
Rachel (Cleveland) Hamblin. 

" My grandfather Hamblin moved from Connecticut to Vermont. He, witli 
two other men and their families, were the first settlers in the eastern part of 
Brooktield, on " the Branch," as it was called. Soon after, the Indians became 
verj^ troublesome, and the men always worked together, as they did not consider 
it safe to work alone. Grandmother was very timid. She took off her gold beads 
jmd her ear ornaments and put them into a pewter porringer and buried them in 



1 72 Ap27e?idix. 



the cellar for fear the Indians would tear the rings from her ears. Slie lived in 
great fear of being tBjken by them. Indeed, she learned subsequently they had a 
narrow escape on one occasion. A man by the name of Johnson being 
captured by the Indians was held in custody for several months, and the chief of 
the tribe gave Johnson charge of some braves while on a scouting exjtedition. 
They saw grandfather and the other men at work while concealed on a hill above 
them, and begged of Johnson permission to go and kill the men, but he mauaged 
to restrain them. Soon after, the Indians burnt Royalton, and grandfather and 
the others with their families started for Lebanon, N. H., some fifty miles 
distant. While making the hurried journey, Ihey saw cattle with their tongues 
cut out and otherwise barbarously injured; feather Ijeds emptied and burnt to a 
crisp; and two men murdered, whom they buried under an old log. But the 
party arrived safely at last in Lebanon, and staid there two years before it was 
deemed safe to return. A few yeai-s after grandfather's return he sold out the 
place and moved to a hill farm, where be and grandmother remained till theii' 
death. They were both hard-working, industrious people, and accumulated a 
g(jod property. 

" My grandmother was a good-looking womau, rather stout, and was greatly 
beloved by all who knew her. I well remember the linen thread she used 
to s])in; it was as M'hite as snow, and exquisitely fine. She nsed to make her 
muslin caps with it. She made me a present of some; and I still have one pair 
of linen pillow slips made from the linen she spun and wove, all her own handi- 
work, and I shall always keep them. She was an excellent butter and cheese 
maker, and took care of the milk from ten cows the summer she was eighty, but 
after that she commenced to fail. She nearly lost her mind before her death at 
the age of 86. She was one of those cheerful, happy women — it was all sunshine 
with her. My mother resembled her very much in appearance, both having dark 
hair and blue eyes. 

"I presume you have got your book almost c(mipleted, and I have no doubt 
it will be very interesting to us all. Send me a copy and tell me the price, and I 
will gladly send you the monev for it. 

Very truly, etc , * ABIGAIL H. HUSE." 

The followiug, iVoui Mrs. iiuth H. Sprague, concerning the Hamblins, 
is subjoined. Strange to say, this conveys the first intimation to the 
compiler that anj^ one of the daughters of James and Lovisa (Bigehjw) 
Hamblin was married. Unfortunately the information comes too late to 
be available in this edition of the work. 

"lean remember Rachel Cleveland, wife of Oliver Hamblin, as a thrifty 
housewife, doing the work for her son .loel (who was at that time a bachelor), 
with the help of 'Dotia, her deaf and dumb daughter. In visiting with my 
mother she talked of her success in making butter and cheese, and I have heard 
the neighbors say no' one ever called on them without having food ottered in 
token of true hospitality. I was never acquainted with her married daughters, 
they having died or removed from the State l)efore ni}- remembrance. Her two 
sous -Tames and .Toel settled in our town, w<'i-e for many 3'ears jjrosperous farmers, 
professors of Christianity, and bore an honorable part in the public busi- 
ness of the community. Five of the eldest ilaughters of James were among my 
valued friends, having been for a considerable part of several years among my 
dearest pupils. They were the victims of c(msumption, and died early, only one 
oi the seven having married. Some were unusually precocious and talented. 
Joel cared for his parents and sister 'Dotia, and on all occasions of public 
worship in the school-house he was sure to be there with his family, 'Dotia in- 
cluded. He removed from the place some j'cars before his death, after which my 
acquaintance with his family ceased."

Brigham Payne,' eldest son and second child of James and Mercy 
(Goddard) Payne, b. in Montague, Mass., Jan. 3, 1801, m. first, date and

happily. He d., it is believed, in Garnett, Anderson county, Kansas, about 
1876, but whether his last wife survives him, is not ascertained. Having 
so far been unable to o-et communication with his children, the following: 
very unsatisfactory sketch, gathered from other sources, is all the compiler 
can present : 

1. Marvin Henry,* date and place of b. unknown, m. a lady in Wis 

consin, and moved to Kansas about 1858, and subsequently to 
California. Number and names, etc., of children, if any, not 
learned.

Pritchard, removed to Kansas, and from there to California.

6. Savilla Antoinette,*' date and place of birth unknown, or if married 

or single. 

7. Alice May,8 date and place of birth unknown, or if married or 

single. The last three are supposed by my correspondent to be 
still living in Garnett, Kansas, but as no attention has been paid 
to my letters, and the Postmaster there can give no account of 
them, it is probable they have all removed from the place, though 
it is very strange that no one should know whither.

Mr. Payne furnishes the following letter by request of the compiler, 
in reference to his ministerial labors, etc. : 

" As for my ministerial record, etc. , for which you ask, it is briefly as follows — 
b (I think you have my military record) : 

K " My literary course was pursued in Hamilton College, Clinton, N. Y., from 
P which I graduated with honor, July 10, 18(58. After passing a year each in the 
Chicago Theological Seminary, and the Auburn Theological Seminary, I 
graduated from Lane Theological Seminary, Cincinnati, Ohio, May 11, 1871. 
Licensed to preach by Presbytery of Cayuga, April 13, 1870. Ordained to the 
gospel ministry by Presbytery of St. Paul, at Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 5, 1871. 

"After declining an invitation to the pastorate of the Sixth Presbyierian 
Church, of Cincinnati, Ohio, I accepted a call to the First Presbyterian Church, 
of Minneapolis, Minn., July 1, 1876, and was soon after installed as its Pastor. 
During this pastorate of nearly four years, considerable accessions were made to 
the church, and a new and commodious edilice erected, (at that time the best 
belonging to our denomination in the city), at a cost of $13,000. Resigned May 

kl, 1875. 
"From Feb. 1, 1876, to Nov. 13, 1870, had charge of Presbyterian Church, of 
Onondasa Valley, N. Y. Dec. 1, 1876, became pastor of Presbyterian Church, 
Lima, N' Y.; resigned Feb. 10, 1870. Feb. 15, 1879, accepted call to pastorate of 
the Associated Presbyterian Church, of Oxford, N. Y., in which field I am now 
happily and successfully laboring. 

" Thanks for your kind messages to mother. She has failed (juite rapidly for 
a month past, and we hardly expect to keep her with us long. 

"Perhaps it may interest you to know that my brother, Wm. II. Payne, of 
^ Sandwich, 111., is the inventor of a very successful Automatic Grain Binder, 
H which is proving a fortune to him. 

■ "I congratulate you on the approaching completion of your work on the 
" Family Record. All branches of the family will owe you thanks for your 
untiring labor.

1^4 Appendix. 



J. 

Capt. James Chamberlain, the maternal grandfather of Oren Cleve- 
land,* son of Rufus' and Mary (Chamberlain) Cleveland, (see page 30,) 
was a son of Joseph Chamberlain, who was resident in Tolland, Conn , 
as early as 1V37. The following entries appear on the old township 
records there : 

" Colbee, y' son of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, was born y' 2'' day of 
January, A. D. 1738." [He became a colonel in the Revolutionary war.] 

"Jacob, y^ son of Joseph Chamberlain, was born y" 21" day of 
January, A. D. 1740-41." 

" William and Rebecca, y^ son and daughter of Joseph Chamberlain, 
were born y' 25*'' day of January, A. D. 1744-45." 

These were only those of the family of children born to him after he 
settled in Tolland, but there were several older children who came with 
their parents besides James, the subject of this sketch, as the following 
entries show : 

" Joseph Chamberlain, Jr., of Tolland, and Elizabeth Delano, of 
Coventry, were married, July y* B*", A. D. 1744," followed by records of 
the birth of " Susannah, born July 16, 1745," and "Joel, born October 
4, 1747." The Coventry (Conn.) records have " Abner Chamberlain, y' 
son of Josejih Chamberlain and Elizabeth his wife, was born November 
y" 14*\ A. D. 1751." This Joseph Chamberlain, Jr., was undoubtedly 
the eldest brother of Capt. James Chamberlain. There were several 
sisters, names not learned, one of whom married a Chase, another 
married a Rice, another a Dimmock, another a Benton, another a Delano. 
One of them married for her second husband a Slosson. John Chase and 
Adoniram Benton, nephews of Capt. James Chamberlain, were each 
employed by him upon the extensive farm he owned, and James Cham- 
berlain, Jr. (the only son of the worthy Captain), when he removed to 
Canaan, Vt., in after years, was accompanied by his " uncle Bill " (Cham- 
berlain) as he was familiarly called, and his cousin, Adoniram Benton. 
Mr. Rice lived in Mansfield, Conn., and Mr. Dimmock, probably in 
Willington, Conn., but several of the Chamberlains settled at an early 
day in " Oblong," now Amenia, Dutchess county, N. Y., and about the 
year 1802, Oren Cleveland,'^ with his brother Alexander,*^ rode out there 
on horseback — a day's journey — to visit their relatives. They took 
dinner en route at some cousins of Rufus Cleveland,'' by the name of 
Cobb, and it may be that this was t\\Q family name of Rachel, the 
mother of Rufus,* and wife of Benjamin Cleveland,* or perhaps a sister 
of the said Rachel had married a Cobb. My father seems quite certain 
that these Cobbs were his father\^ cou-'^iiis. Possibly they were children 
of Dorothy Cleveland,'* who may have so married. The town where this 
family of Cobbs resided, is not remembered by my father, but he thinks 
it was about half way between Winsted, Conn., and Amenia, N. Y. 

The compiler has reason to believe that Capt, James Chamberlain 
was a descendant of Thomas Chamberlain, of Newton, Mass., who it 



Appendix. 185 



\ 



is concluded was a son of "William Chamberlain, of Woburn, Mass., 
who had, at Concord : 1. Timothy, b. Aug-. 13, 1649. 2. Isaac, b. Oct. 
1, 1650, d. young; prob. removed to Billerica, Mass., in 1654 ; had there, 
.3. Sarah, b. Jan. 18,1656. 4. Jacob, b. Jan. 18, 1658. 5. Thomas, 
b. Feb. 20, 1659. 6. Edmund, b. July 15, 1660. 7. Rebecca, b. Feb. 
25, 1662. 8. Abraham, b. Jan. 6, 1664. 9. Ann, b. March 3, 1666. 
10. .Clement, b. May 30, 1669. 11. Daniel, b. Sept. 27, 1671 ; and 12. 
Isaac, b. Jan. 20, 1681. His wife Rebecca, mother of the last four children, 
perhaps of more, d. Sept. 26, 1692, in prison, on the preposterous charge 
of witchcraft, and he d. May 31, 1706, aged 85." [The foregoing is 
from Savage's Gen. Diet, of First Settlers of New England, Vol. I, 
CiiAiMUERLAiisr, page 352.] 

Thomas Chamberlain, of Newton, Mass., it appears, m. April 18, 
1682, Elizabeth Hammond, a daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Sted- 
man) Hammond. She was b. in Newton, Mass., Nov. 3. 1664. They 
had: 1. Thomas, b. Sept. 10, 1683. 2. Elizabeth, b. Aug. 1, 1686. 
3. Rebecca, b. March 11, 1689. 4. Mary, b. Feb. 11, 1693. 5. Sarah, 
b. Oct. 18, 1695. 6. John, b. Sept. 26, 1698, and (probably) 7. 
Joseph, b. about 1700, and 8. William, b. about 1704. Joseph, it is con- 
jectured, was the father of (Capt.) James, but the place of the birth of 
the latter, which occurred on Feb. 11, 1734, O. S., is not positively 
learned, though it is thought to have been Mansfield. 

The full maiden name of his mother is not found, or remembered by 
his grandson, Oren Cleveland,^ but there is little or no reason to doubt 
her given name was Mary. 

By the Coventry (Conn.) records, it appears that " James Chamberlain 
and the widdow Abigail Palmer, the dafter of Zachariah Bointon,* was 
married together, January, y* 27, A. D. 1757." By her first husband, 
John Palmer, she had four children, all b. in Coventry, Conn., as follows : 

1. Hannah, b. May 21, 1749, m. in Coventry, Joel Chamberlain, son 
of Joseph and Elizabeth (Delano) Chamberlain, and dying in child bed 
March 18, 1769, gave her infant daughter to her mother, then Mrs. Capt. 
James Chamberlain, to rear, and nurse with her own child, a babe of 
tender years (Naomi), and so daughter and granddaughter were fed and 
cradled together. The babe, called Haimah for her mother, grew to 
womanhood, and m. Dr. Joseph Chamberlain, by whom she had a son 
named Oren, and they resided in New York State, probably in or near 
Amenia, Dutchess county. 

2. John, b. June 22, 1751, m. in Tolland, Conn., Ruth Chapman, a 
dau. of Deacon Chapman and sister of Elijah Chapman, Sheriff of 
Tolland county. He was a tanner ; removed to Charlotte, Vt., where he 
carried on the business of farming very successfully. He d. there, July 
8, 1834, and his wife May 13, 1822. They had a family of six children, 

* Zacliary Boynton married Sarah Wicom, [Wyckliam] a native of England, and had, accord- 
ing to tlic n^cords in Coventi-v, seven children, nanielv: 1. John, 1). Oct. 9, 1718. 2. Ilariiiah, b.

Palmer, resides in Greenfield, Mass., and a daughter, Mrs. M. F. Baldwin, 
resides in Bridgeport, Conn. 7. Daniel C, b, about 1806, and the 
youngest child, m. Mahala Eggleston, and both are now living (1877) in 
Charlotte, Vt., with many sons and daughters married and settled near 
them. 

3. Mehitabel, b. July 13, 1753, m. Andrew West, of Tolland, Conn., 
a farmer, and removed, it is believed, to Oneida county, N. Y., where 
they had a family of children. One daughter, Hannah West, was brought 
to Capt. Chamberlain's, and remained until she married John Barton, son 
of Col. Barton, Providence, R. I., of Revolutionary fame. Nothing 
further learned of their children. 

4. Abigail, b. July 22, 1755, m. Oliver Edgerton, son of Hezekiah 
Edgerton, of Tolland, Conn. They came, however, soon after to Ware- 
house Point, Conn., and he engaged in trade, but his wife dying, he 
returned to his native place after marrying a widow with considerable 
property at Amenia, N. Y. His father was at one time a resident of 
Norwich, Conn., and deeded, Feb. 2, 1775, a farm of 82^ acres in 
Tolland, to his son Oliver. No children. 



The descendants of Abigail (Boynton) Palmer, by second husband, 
Capt. James Chamberlain, claim more particular attention, and will be 
next in order. 

As before stated, they "were nmrried together, Jan. y' 27, A. D. 
1757," in Coventry, Conn., and their children were six in number, as 
follows, all b. in Coventry, or Tolland, Conn. :

Roswell Paine, the husband of Sally Chamberlain, was an own cousin to 
Edward Payne, the husband of Persis Cleveland,'* (seepage 26.) Though 
spelling the name differently, both were descended from Stephen Paine 
of Rehoboth, Mass., a miller by occupation and the founder of this 
branch of the Paine family. He came from near Hingham, Norfolk 
county, Eng., in 1638, in the ship D)7h';/ent of Ipswich, John Martin, 
master, bringing his family, CDUsisting of his wife Rose, three sons and 
four servants, and settled first in Hingham, Plymouth county, Mass. He 
was made a freeman in 1639, and elected a Representative or Deputy in 
1641. Two or three years afterwards, he removed with his family to 



196 Appendix. 



" Seekonk " which settlement it was decided, at the suggestion of Rev. 
Samuel Newman, (who came there from Weymouth, Mass., with the 
gieater part of his congregation), should be called Rehoboth. Mr. Paine 
became prominent in the affairs of the colony, and held many offices of 
honor and trust, as shown by the records of the town. He was a man of 
wealth for those days, his estate being valued in 1643 at £535; the third 
highest on the list. As indicative of the confidence his townsmen had 
in his judgment, it may be stated that in 1659, "it is agreed upon 
between the Town and Lieut. Hunt and William Bucklin, that they is 
to shingle the new end of the meeting house, and to be done as suffi- 
ciently as the new end of Goodman Paynes house," the inference being, 
of course, that what was good enough for him was good enough for the 
town. His two sons that grew to manhood and left families were 
Stephen and Nathaniel; the eldest son of the former, also named Stephen, 
being the grandfather of Roswell and Edward. A very complete 
genealogy of the families bearing the name of Payne (or Paine) in this 
country, may be had by application to Henry D. Paine, M. D., 26 West 
30th street. New York.

chant in early life, and associated with his father under the style of 
" James Chamberlain & Son," at Warehouse Point, East Windsor, 
Conn. He retired from business, and removed to Canaan, Vt., where he 
engaged in buying and selling horses and cattle. As a horseman he had 
few if any superiors. While a resident of Vermont, he was elected a 
member of the Legislature one or two terms, and being fond of and 
excelling in military drill and exercises, he received from the State his 
commission as a major in the militia.

Concerning the JBabcocAs, the following may be of interest to the 
descendants of Maj. James and Annah W. (Babcock) Chamberlain: 

" Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Jan. 6, 1879. 
" Dear Sir : About the beginning of the eighteenth century my great grand- 
father, Amos Babcock, came over from England and settled in Providence, R. I., 
and, tradition says, two brothers, Stephen and Timothy, came with him. Timo- 
thy took an active part in the Indian wars; but Stephen Avas a person of literary 
tastes and habits, who considered "the pen mightier than the sword." My 
grandfather was also named Amos, and was born about 1715 to 1718; was sent to 
England to finish his education; returned to Providence about 1735 to 1740; 
married Miss Annah Watkins; settled in Ashford, Windham county. Conn., and 
had a family of children as follows: 1. Stephen, who m. Prudence . 

2. Elijah, who m. for his first wife Elizabeth Bassett. 3. Sally, who m. Shubal 
Gear. 4. William, who d. in his sixth year. 5. Amos, who m. Peggy Peabody. 

6. Horace, who m. a Miss Berry. 7. Roswell, who m. a Miss Holt. 8. Miriam, 
who m. a Mr. Keyes. 9. Annah W., who m. a Mr. Wales. 

"Elijah Babcock, the second son and child, b. in Ashford, Conn., about 1745, 
m. first, about 1762-3, Elizabeth Bassett, by whom he had, in Ashford, Conn.: 
1. Roxana, who m. Col. Jacob Newkirk. 2. Linda, who m. Peter Campbell. 

3. Hettie, who m. Col. Baldwin. 4. Annah Watkins, who m. Maj. Chamber- 
lain. 5. William, who m. Rhoda Hull. 6. Elizabeth, who m. George Steele, 

7. Ralph, who d. July 15, 1859, unmarried. 8. Prudence, who also m. George 
Steele, husband of her sister Elizabeth, deceased. And by second wife, Ruhama 
Hare : 9. Annah Watkins (again), who m. Dr. Harvey Burritt, and d. in South 
Toledo, Ohio, Feb. 4, 1879, aged about 70. 10. Amos, who was b. Oct. 22, 1811, 
m. Caroline Lucas, and resides (1879) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. 

" It is related of my grandfather, that while attending college in England, 
and on a wager with his fellow students, he threw one of the king's guards off 
his horse, mounted the animal and made his escape. On another occasion, at 
the queen's levee she held out her hand for the students to kiss as they passed by, 
but he audaciously kissed her cheek. The ofleuse was forgiven ou his assurance 
that the salutation was according to the mode adopted in the Colonies. 

"When he returned to Providence he began to pay his addresses to Miss 
Annah Watkins, whose father, a proud old Englishman, claiming royal blood 
in his veins, promptly forbade him his house, and shut his daughter up in the 
second story. But grandfather, illustrating the adage that "love laughs at 
locksmiths," stole away with his sweetheart on horseback to Connecticut, 
married her, and became a prominent man in Windham county. Was a repre- 
sentative for twenty-six years in the Colonial Legislature, and a Selectman, 
Deacon and Judge. I remember well the " coat of arms " painted on the back 
of our " old shay "—two fighting cocks in the act of sparring. 

"My father, Elijah Babcock, went to Vermont in 1775, joined Gen. Ethan 
Allen, and helped take Fort Ticonderoga; continued a soldier through the war; 
was captain of a company of men he raised in Connecticut, who marched 
under Gen. Arnold to Quebec; w^as the last man Gen. Montgomery spoke to just 
before the fatal bullet struck him; and was present at the surrender of Cornwallis. 

"I never heard that my great grandfather had any other children than my 
grandfather, but suppose he probably raised a large family. 

" RespectfuUj" submitted, 

"AMOS BABCOCK. 

"To A. H. Babcock, Esq., Des Moines, Iowa."

Captain James Chamberlain was a man of large stature (being six 
feet in his stockings, and weighing over 250 pounds avoirdupois), of fine 



204 Appendix. 



personal appearance, and well known throughout the Colony and State 
of Connecticut in his day. He became dissatisfied with the Congrega- 
tionalism of that period, and with Gen. Jenks, Wm. C. Warner, and 
others of like mind, organized a church parish for worship according to 
the forms of the mother Church of England, and was a devout and con- 
sistent Churchman until his death. He was noted as a peacemaker, and 
was often selected as an umpire or arbitrator to settle differences ; and 
belligerent parties would end their quarrels by agreeing to leave the 
matter in dispute to " Cap'n Chamberlain," as he was familiarly known. 
Many pages might be filled with anecdotes concerning him and his 
bustling, kind-hearted little wife, but the compiler has not space for them 
in this volume. The following from the " Early History of Tolland," 
page 77, in reference to his civil and military services concludes 
Appendix J. 

" James Chamberlain commanded a company of cavalry one or two 
tours of duty during the War of the Revolution. He came to Tolland 
from Coventry about the year 1772, and removed to East Windsor 
before the year 1 782. While in this town he lived at the extreme south- 
east part of it on a farm lying east of the one lately owned by Jesse 
West. He was one of the representatives in the General Assembly, 
October session, 1775."

Samuel' Allen came from Braintree, Essex county, England. He 
was born about the year 1588, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. He 
came to Cambridge, Mass., in 1632; was brother of Col. Matthew Allyn, 
of Cambridge, Mass., afterwards of Windsor and Hartford, Conn., and 
Dea. Thomas Allyn, of Middletown, Conn. He removed to Connec- 
ticut in 1635, and settled in Windsor. He was a juryman March o, 
1644, and was by occupation a farmer. From the Windsor, Conn., land 
records we have the following: 

"January 37, 1640, Sarouel Allen hath granted from the Plantation at Windsor, 
Conn. 1st. An house lott being six acres, three roods, ten poles, bounded troin 
the rivulet [Farmington River] to the West, by Rodger Ludlow on tlie South ; by 
Thomas Marshall on the North; and runs in length to the West into a highway 
laid out unto some part of the lot of the said Rodger Ludlow and him the said 
Samuel Allen. 3nd. In Plymouth meadow Four acres, bounded by Bray Rossiter 
on the North; and a rivulet that runs into the great [Connecticut] River on tlie 
South. 3rd. Toward Hartford Nineteen acres more or less, and runs in length to 
the Great River to the West one hundred and thirty and four rods, and is bounded 
by John Witchfield on the Nortli, and Thomas Marshtield on the South. 4tli. 
Over the Great River next to the same, fifteen rods in breadth, in the length to 
the East three miles; bounded by Joseph Lummus on the South; .John Hurd ou 
the North." 

The fourth division was undoubtedly within the present limits of 
South Windsor. Samuel Allen was a man of public spirit, and was 
honored by his fellow citizens with positions of trust. He d. in Windsor, 
Conn., and was buried April 28, 1648, aged 60 years, leaving a widow

and at Latlirop's fight my failuT was slain. My mother was left a widow with 
three small children, myself the oldest of them, and not abive five years old. 
She was left in a low state, for she had lost the greater part of what she had. I 
have taken an account of the most remarkable fits of sickness that I have been 
visited with in all my lifetime. My mother tells me of one very sore fit of sick- 
ness of malignant fever when I was abcnit three years old, when she did not 
expect my life for three weeks together. I was very bad. Another fit of the 
chicken pox when I was about eight years old ; another form of sickness when I 
was about twelve or thirteen years old, with a pain in my side. I had the measles 
when I was about seventeen or eighteen years old; anuther fit of sore sickness 
when I was about nineteen years old. In the years when the great fever was 
about, I had a long and lingering sickness, twenty-two and three years old. I 
had the [illegible] a long sore weak time in the year 1696. I had a fit of sick-

church August 2d day, 1696, sacrament day.

Those who desire to further trace the descendants of Samuel Allen,' 
are referred to Willard S. Allen, Esq., clerk of the Municipal Court in 
East Boston, Mass., and compiler of the " Genealogy of the Allen 
family " in this country, from which the foregoing is taken. He resides 
at 88 Lexington Street, East Boston, Mass. 



Concerning the Adams branch of my ancestry on the maternal side, 
it may be traced with confidence to Thomas Adams * of Colchester, 

* Thomas Adams was undoubtedly descended from " Henry Adams, who emigrated to this 
country in 16:W, from Essex county, Eng., and settled in Braintree, Mass., and who was the 
ancestor of the patriots, Samuel and John Adams— the latter second President of the United 
States. Thomas Adams, son of Henry Adams, of Braintree, Mass.. made treeman May 10, 1643. 

By wife Mary , had Mary, b. July 34, 1643; il. soon; removed to Concord, Mass., there had 

Jonathan and Pelatiah (twins), b. March 6, 1646; Timothy, b. April 2, 1648; George, b. May 29, 

1650; Samuel b. — , 1652; Thomas, b. , 1655; removed to Chelmsford, Mass., there had 

Rebecca, b. Sept. 18, 1657; Elizabeth, b. Oct. 21, 1659; and Mary (again), b. Oct. 29, 1664. Was town 
clerk, selectman, representative at second session 1673, and d. July 20, 1688, aged 76."' {Savage,

Conn., who had, according to the old records there, a family of ten 
children, as follows : 

1. Sarah, b. Feb. 1, 1717. 

2. Abigail, b. March 3, 1718. 

3. Thomas, b. Aug. 30, 1719. 

4. Elizabeth, b. Nov. 3, 1720. 

5. Haunah, b. July 4, 1722. 
■ 6. Elijah, b. May 30, 1724. 

7. Mary, ) b. March 17, 1727. 

8. Martha, \ b. March 17, 1727. 

9. Lydia, b. July 16, 1729. 
10. Elisha, b. Sept. 28, 1732. 

Thomas Adams, the eldest son, b. Aug. 30, 1719, was, I conjecture 
from the perpetuation of lamily given names (as will appear), the father 
of Mary Adams, wife of Moses Allen. The romantic circumstances of his 
marriage in 1744, to AJrs. Mary (Hammond) Vallett, of Montville, 
Conn., must be briefly narrated. About the year 1736, Jeremiah Vallett, 
a worthy sea captain, courted and married Miss Mary Hammond.* She 
bore him a son who was named Jeremiah, for his father. One day, some 
three years after his marriage, Capt. Vallett, leaving his snug little home 
well stored with the necessaries of life, bade his wife an afi'ectionate 
farewell, kissed little "Jerry," his only son and heir, and joined his vessel 
for a short cruise. The time came around for his promised return, but 
no tidings of the ship or its captain. Weeks and months passed by, 
and the disconsolate wife anxiously watched ajid waited for some message 
from the absent husband and father. At length the report came that the 
ship had been lost at sea with all on board, and the " widow Vallett " 
put on mourning for the jjrescribed period. At the expiration of the 
time, but with no unseemly haste, she accepted the hand of Thomas 
Adams, a young and active ship carpenter at that time, and her junior 
by a few years only. Her former husband's estate being administered 
upon, as any dead man's should be, the newly married couple settled 
down to domestic happiness in the comfortable home of " the late " Capt. 
Vallett. 

Everything was going on swimmingly enough when, to the consterna- 
tion of all, Capt. Vallett himself appeared at the door of his former domicil, 
and the consequent surprise and astonishment may be imagined better 
than described. But under the laws of the colony no wrong had been 
done or intended, and a consultation was held without delay, with the 
good minister of the place who had tied the second knot, and a magis- 
trate of the law as the legal counselor, to effect an amicable arrangement 
among the parties so deeply interested. It was agreed that the wife 
should herself say which husband she preferred, and she unhesitatingly 

* Mary Hammond was, without doubt, a descendant of " Thomas Hammond, of Hingham, Mass., 
1636, who came from Lavenham, Suffollv county, Eng. He was made a freeman March 9, 1637. By 
wife Elizabeth, m. (probably in Eugland), Nov. 1^, 1623, who d. before him, brought children 
Elizabeth and Thomas; had Sarah, baptized Sept. 13, 1640, and Nathaniel, March 12, 1643; removed 
to Watertown, Mass., thence across the river in 1650 to Cambridge village, purchased a large farm 
with Vincent Druce, and d. Sept. 30, 1675, nged 88 years. His will names all these children: 
Elizabeth, (who m. Aug. 17, 1659, George W oodward,) Thomas and Nathaniel, all then married, and 
Sarah, probably wife of Nathaniel Stedman, as deceased, but her children, Sarah and Elizabeth 
to be heirs. He had a very good estate." [Savage, Gen. Bid.]

chose the second one, undoubtedly, from her past experience, being 
more in favor of a land lubber on shore, than the best sailor man in the 
world afloat. 

So the Captain graciously accepted the situation, with the stipulation, 
however, that young Adams and his wife should depart from that 
neighborhood a considerable distance, little " Jerry," of course, to remain 
with his father. 

Thomas Adams and his wife removed to East Windsor, and settled at 
Warehouse Point, on the Connecticut river, following his occupation of 
ship carpenter. Subsequently he kept the public house there, and died 
about November, 1767, in his 49th year. She married third. Gen. Wol- 
cott, and went to reside in Springfield, Mass. ; but not living happily 
with her third husband, they mutually consented to a separation, and 
she afterwards resided with one of her daughters till she died. She was 
a woman above the medium height, and was very fleshy in the later years 
of her life. The children and grandchildren were accustomed to go 
occasionally and visit," Cousin Jerry " Vallett, and were always cordially 
received and entertained with the utmost hospitality. But this intercourse, 
I understoood from my informant, was after the worthy Captain's death. 

Children of Thomas and Mary (Hammond) [Vallett] Adams, as far 
as known, were eight in number, as follows, all b. in East Windsor, 
Conn. :

F. N, Allen, Esq., of Hartford, Conn., writes, July 27, 1878, and 

gives copy of an entry found on the Probate Records of Hartford county, 

as follovps : 

"2 Day of February, 1768. It was certified to this Court by Ephraim Terry, 
a justice of the peace, that Thomas Adams, a minor, aged sixteen years, son 
of Thomas Adams, late of Windsor, deceased, appeared before him on the 1st 
day of December last, and made choice of Moses AUyn, of Enfield, to be his 
guardian ; which choice the Court accepts. And the said Moses appeared 
before the Court, and acknowledged himself bound to the Judge of this Court or 
his successor in a recog. of £100 money, that he will faithfully discharge the 
trust of guardian to said minor, during his minority, according to law." 

Mr. Allen further writes : 

"This is all that I could find on the records. The Judge says that probably 
there was no will, and that the property of Thomas Adams was all personal and 
no inventory was made. We examined the books, thinking there might appear a 
copy of a will, or names of legally appointed administrators; but this is all we 
could find. It may be concluded, I think, that Thomas Adams, Sr., died about 
the latter part of November, 1767, and that this was his only minor child." 

xVnother correspondent on the subject, has an impression of hearing 
it said that he enlisted in the army when the Revolutionary war com- 
menced, was severely wounded, remained in a hospital until convales- 
cent, and came home an emaciated cripple. He probably did not 
survive many years, and it is believed died unmarried.

Knapp — Barnum. 

(See Page 50.) 

The Knapps in this country, or at least in the New England States, 
are undoubtedly largely descended from Nicholas Knap, who came from 
Sussex, Eng., about A. D. 1630, and settled in Watertown, Mass. By 
first wife, Elinor, he had : 1. Jonathan, (who was buried Dec. 27, 1631); 
2. Timothy, b. Dec. 14, 1632 ; 3. Joshua, b. Jan. 5, 1635; 4. Caleb, 
b. Jan. 20, 1637 ; 5. Sarah, b. Jan. 5, 1639 ; 6. Ruth, b. Jan. 6, 1641 ; 
7. Hannah, b. March 6, 1643. Removed to Stamford, Conn., and there 

had : 8. Moses, b. , 1645 ; 9. Lydia, b. , 1647, His wife 

Elinor d. Aug. 16, 1658, and he m. second, March 9, 1659, Mrs. Unity, 
widow of Peter Brown, and who had been widow of Clement Buxton. 
He d. April, 1670. His will of April 15, 1670, names four sons, Caleb, 
Joshua, Moses, Timothy ; and four daughters, Sarah, Hannah, Lydia, 
Ruth. 

Timothy, second son of Nicholas Knap, was representative for Rye 
in 1670, and was living in Greenwich, 1697. 



Appendix. '^2'.) 



Joshua, thirtl sou of Nicholas Knap, was of Greenwich, 1G70 ; m. 
in Stamford, June 9, 1657, Hannah Close ; d. Oct. 27, 1G84, leaving a 
good estate by inventory of 1685 ; and children : Hannah, aged 25 ; 
Joshua, 22 ; Joseph, 20 ; Ruth, 18 ; Timothy, 16 ; Benjamin, 10 ; Caleb, 
7 ; Jonathan, 5. His widow m. John Bowers. 

Caleb, fourth son of Nicholas Knap, was of Stamford, 1670, made 
his will Dec. 11, 1674, and names wife Hannah, and children, Caleb, 
John, Moses, Sanuiel, Sarah and Hannah. 

Sarah, eldest daughter of Nicholas Knap, m. Sept. 6, 1667, Peter 
Disbrough ; and Ruth, the second daughter, m. Nov. 20, 1667, Joseph 
Ferris. 

Moses, the youngest son of Nicholas Knaj), was of Greenwich, 1670, 
but perhaps only a landholder, and never lived there but at Stamford, as 
early as 1667, and there his father gave him land by his will ; m. about 
1669, Abigail, daughter of Richard Wescoat. Whether he had children 
is not learned, but he was living certainly at Stamford up to 1701, per- 
haps later. The name is now generally spelled with two p's. 

The compiler has no good reason to doubt that tfo/tu Jymtp, second 
son of Caleb and Hannah Knap, and grandson of Nicholas and Elinor 
Knap, was the grandfather (or great grandfather) of John Knapp, of 
Danbury, Conn., who m. Rvith Gregory, and had : 

1. Samuel, b. about 1760, m. Mary Lindsley. 

2. Elizabeth, b. about 1763, m. Ezra Nichols.

4. Ruth, b. about 1770, m. Baker Bass. 

5. John, b. May 13, 1772, m. first, Lucy Merwiu. 

0. Chloe, b. about 1774, m. Joseph Mansfield. 

7. Levi, b. May 1, 1777, m. Elizabeth Hamilton. 

Of this family and descendants the following sketch, hastily prepared

and future reference :

The family of Knapps is traced back for twenty or more generations, 
and derive from Roger de Knap, who figured in English history, some- 
time in the 12th century ; and descendants in almost every town and 
village in the United States are of a direct line, and entitled to the 
family coat of arms. 



The ancestry of Capt. Azor Barnum, the maternal grandfather of 
Anna M. Knapp (see page 50), may be traced to Thomas Barnum, of 
Norwalk, Conn., 1662, and before that at Fairfield, and after at Danbury. 
He had: Thomas, b. July 9, 1663; John, b. Feb. 24, lOVS; Hannah, 
b. Oct. 14, 1680; and Ebenezer, b. May 19, 1682; but six more children 
he had, two sons and four daughters, yet at Norwalk are no more re- 
corded, nor can I find (says Savage) the names of these six or either of 
them, or either of two wives, one of whom outlived him, who d. 1695. 

From surviving descendants of Capt. Azor Barnum, however, it is 
ascertained that he was a son of Joshua Barnum, and a grandson of 
Thomas Barnum, Jr., though no further particulars of names and dates 
have been gathered. 

The children of Capt. Azor Barnum, by wife Anna Sweet, were at 
least seven in number, all b. in South East, Putnam county, N. Y., as 
follows : 

1. Azor, b. about 1772, m. first, , who d. soon, and he m. second, 

Sally Bradley, by whom he bad two daughters, Sally and Julia, It is 
not known if any descendants are living. 

2. Rebecca, b. about 1774, who m. a Mr. T^ewis, and lived in Pough- 
keepsie, N. Y., and had George, Azor, Ann Maria, Sally, and Julia.

The following copy of a letter to the Compiler from Ex-Gov. 
Chauncey Fitch Cleveland, of Hampton, Windham county, Conn., de- 
serves the space it fills (if for no other reason) for the noble sentiments 
therein expressed in reference to honoring the name we bear : 

"Hampton, Conn., Dec. 23, 1876. 
" H. G. Cleveland, Esq. : 

" My Dear Sir — Your very interesting letter of Dec. 8th, is received, and by 
it I have learned more of the origin of the Clevelands than 1 knew before. You 
'ask who my grandfatlier married, and the names of their children. He mar- 
ried a Hyde, of Canterbury. She belonged to a family distinguished for their love 
of money. Her Christiau name I have forgotten. They had a family of five 
sons and four daughters: Solomon, Silas, Daniel, Isaac and Palmer; Irene, Cla- 
rissa, Elizabeth and Polly. Solomon married Hannah Sharp, of Pomfret. They 
had six children, all very talented: Palmer, Charles, Solomon; Hannah, Betsey 
and Lois. Of the sons, two were lawyers and one was a manufacturer. Of the 



350 Appendix. 



three daughters, one was the grandmolher of the authoress, Ellen Louise 
(Chandler) Moultou. These children are all dead, but all have descendants liv- 
ing, excepting Solomon, Avho never married. The names of these cousin's chil- 
dren I can not give you. 

" Silas, Jr., my father, married Lois Sharp, of Pomfret, sister of Uncle Solo- 
mon's wife. They had three sons : Mason, John and Chauncey F., all born in 
Hampton. 

" Mason married Eliza Perkins, and they have four sons. Mason died twenty 
years ago. The sons are: Perkins, unmarried, is clerk in the Comptroller's 
Office, New York ; Edward S., a gentleman of leisure, married Caroline BoUes, 
of Hartford, Conn., has two sons living, and lias buried one; Henry M., married 
Mary Welch, of Brooklyn, Conn., they have four children, two sons and two 
daugliters ; George Lee, unmarried, is in a banking house in Hartford. These 
my nephews are talented and prosperous. 

" My brother John studied medicine, but died at the age of twenty-eight, 
unmarried. 

" I married for my first wife, Diantha Hovey, of this town, and we raised 
two children : John J. and Delia D. My son graduated at Trinity College, 
Hartford, and my daughter also graduated in Hartford. John was a lawyer and 
clerk of the Federal Courts of this State; never married; died at the age of 
twenty-eight. My daughter married Alfred A. Burnham, of Windham, a law- 
yer; has been Speaker of House of Representatives, Lieut. Gov., and tour years 
"Member of Congress. Delia died at the age of twenty-eight. My children were 
very talented, and died universally loved and respected. My wife, Diantha, died 
Oct. 29, 1867, and I married .her niece, Helen Litchfield, with whom I am now 
living. 

" My Uncle Daniel died a bachelor. Palmer died early. Isaac married 
Abigail Brown, of Brooklyn. They had three cliildren : two girls and one son. 
Nancy died early. Olive married Lester Burnett, and lives In San Francisco. 
They have two children. Harvey died three or four years ago and left one son, 
who is married and lives in Massachusetts Polly never married. Irene, Eliza- 
beth and Clarissa married, and their descendants are scattered about the world. 

"Your questions regarding the Senior Edward I can not answer. Had I 
thought of it when young, my grandfather could have given me a history of the 
Cleveland family, from first to last. My ancestors, as far as I knew them, were 
talented, honorable men. But to be perfectly frank with you, my kinsman, I 
have been much more anxious to honor the name of Cleveland, than to be hon- 
ored by it. 

" I was pleased with the picture of your father, a fine looking old gentleman. 
I enclose my own to him, taken when 1 was seventy-five, most three years ago. 
The Clevelands are a long-lived race. 

" With feelings of kinship I subscribe myself, 

Your friend and servant, 

C. F. CLEVELAND." 



So many and urgent have been the inquiries of correspondents, dur- 
ing the compilation of this Genealogy, concerning the personal history of 
the Compiler, that he has concluded to insert the following biographical 
account, taken from Cleave's " Biographical Cyclopedia and Portrait 
Gallery of Distinguished Men of Ohio" (Cuyahoga County, page 94), 
the author of which, it appears, had the presumption to embrace him in 
that category. Making due allowances for the very flattering character 
of the sketch, it will no doubt fully answer the purpose of its insertion: 

" CLEVELAND, HORACE GILLETTE, merchant, was born January 3d, 
1832, at Winchester, Litchfield county, Connecticut, and was the youngest son of 
eleven children; living, April, 1875, at Cleveland, Ohio. His father, Oren Cieve-

land, being a man of good education and fine literary taste, devoted many years 
of his life to teaching, at the same time cultivating a farm. Moses Cleveland, 
from whom this branch of the Cleveland family descended, came over from 
Ipswich, England, about 1640, and settled in Woburn, Massachusetts; his son 
Samuel settled in Connecticut, in 1(593. Oren Cleveland, the father of Horace, 
removed his family to Ohio in 1839, and settled in Geauga county. Horace 
lived at home, assisting in carrying on the farm, and attending the district 
school winters, until he was nineteen, when he entered the store of Kile, Wil- 
kins & Co., at Huntsburgh, where he remained as general clerk for about a year. 
In 1852 he went lo Cleveland and entered a mercantile college for the purpose 
of perfecting himself in book-keeping, and at the end of a few wrecks he had so 
tiioroughly mastered the science that he was offered the position of tutor in the 
college, but declined, wishing to connect himself more actively with the business 
of the cit3^ Immediately on leaving the college he engaged as book-keeper, 
with Mr. A. M. Beebe, at that time doing a large and profitable business on Bank 
street He remained with Mr. Beebe about a yeai-, and then was employed in the 
Forest City Bank, organized under the free banking law of Ohio. At the end of 
about a year, he was prostrated by a severe and lingering illness, which necessi- 
tated his resignation, much to the regret of the officers of the institution, for his 
clerical abilities were of a high order, and joined to a uniformly courteous 
deportment, made him a general favorite. After his restoration to health he was 
employed for a short time by the Bank of Geauga, at Painesville, where his skill 
as an accountant was called into requisition in examining, writing up and 
balancing books and accounts that had been neglected for many years. This 
service done he returned to Cleveland, and in the spring of 1855, entered the well 
known wholesale store of George Worthington, then on the corner of Water and 
Superior streets, the present site of the Second National Bank building. He was 
the book-keeper and chief clerk of this enterprising and very successful business 
house for nearly ten years. These were years of close application, and taxed to 
the uttermost a constitution not naturally strong; yet the experience was of great 
advantage, for by it he was being educated for the more responsible duties the 
years were to bring to him. In the fall of 1804, he formed a copartnership with 
Joseph H. Brown, Richard Brown, Thomas Brown, and William Bonnell, of 
Youngstown, Ohio, under the name of Cleveland, Brow^n & Co., and opened a 
large hardware store, at Nos. 25 to 31 Merwin street, making heavy hardware a 
specialty. They imported largely of Swedish iron, English steel, etc. Their 
business operations reached an average of two millions i^er annum ; their trade 
extended throughout Northern Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and the upper lakes, 
and in some lines of goods as far east as Boston. The reputation of the house 
for enterprise and honorable dealing was thoroughly established. There have 
been several changes of partners during the eleven years of its existence, and in 
1875 the firm had seven partners, viz. : H. G. Cleveland, Joseph H. Brown, 
Richard Brown, J. O. Brown, William Bonnell, P. M. Hitchcock, and A. M. 
Wilcox. In 1870, he was elected president of the Painesville and Youngstown 
Railroad, a narrow gauge road running from Fairport, on the lake, to Youngs- 
town, built for the special purpose of transporting iron ore from the lake to the 
extensive iron works at Youngtow^n, and coal from that region to the lake, and 
is under the control of parties engaged in these interests. After about a j^ear he 
resigned, on account of the increa.sing demands of his regular business. Exem- 
plary in all transactions whether of a public or private character; an active, 
earnest man, with a keen insight into the multiplied details of such a life, and 
rare judgment to meet them, he is the recognized head of one of Cleveland's 
most enterprising and substantial commercial houses. In politics he is a con- 
servative Republican, thoroughly patriotic, and heartily supported the war, giv- 
ing liberally to all those charitable enterprises that grew out of the struggle. 
He was two years in the city council, and rendered valuable services on the 
finance committee. He is a communicant in the Episcopal Church, uniting with 
the (Grace) Church about ten years ago, and engages actively in its Christian 
work, cheerfully giving his time and money to its advancement; indeed, all 
worthy charitable objects find in him a friend. He is w^arden of Grace Church,

and one of the standing committee of the diocese. He was married to Miss 
Anna Maria Kuapi), of Danbury, Connecticut, in 1853. They have three chil- 
dren, two sons and one daughter." 



A BURLESQUE ON THE PRIDE OF FAMILY BLOOD, 

WRITTEN BY 

REV. ^^.A-RON ClLiEVKL AND, 

After hearing a conversation on the subject. 



Four kinds of blood flow in my veins, 

And govern each, in turn, my brains: 

From Cleveland, Porter. Sew all, Waters, 

I had my blood distinct in quarters. 

My parents' parents' names I know. 

But I no farther back can go. 

Compound on compound from the flood. 

Forms now m}' own ancestral blood, 

But what my sires of old time were, 

I neither wish to know nor care. 

Some might be wise, and others tools; 

Some might be tyrants, others tools; 

Some might be rich, and others lack; 

Some might be white, and others black; 

No matter what in days of yore, 

Since they are known and sung no more. 

The name of Cleveland I must wear, 

Which some poor foundling first might bear. 

Porter, I 'm told, from Scotland came, 

A bonny bard of ancient fame; 

Sewall, an English derivation, 

Perhaps some outcast from the nation ; 

Waters, an Irishman, I ween. 

Straight roundabout from Aberdeen — 

Such is my heterogeneous "blood," 

A motley mixture, bad and good; 

Each blood aspires to rule alone, 

And each in turn ascends the throne, 

And rules till others tear him down. 

Each change must twist about my brains. 

And move my tongue in difterent strains; 

My mental powers are captive led. 

And whim or wisdom rules the head. 

My character, no one can know. 

For none 1 have while things are so, 

I'm something, nothing, wise or fool. 

As suits the blood which haps to rule. 

When Cleveland reigns, I 'm thought a wit. 
In making words the funny hit; 
In social glee and humorous song, 
I charm the fools that round me throng; 
But soon, perhaps, this blood is down, 
When Porter next may wear the crown. 
Now all is calm, discreet, and wise. 
Whatever 1 do, whatever advise, 



What common sense and wisdom teach, 
Direct my actions— form my speech; 
The wise and good now with me stay, 
While laughing fools keep far away ; 
But soon, alas!— this happy reign 
Must, tor some other, change again. 
Sewall, perhaps, may next bear rule, 
I 'm then a philosophic fool ! 
With Jefterson I correspond. 
And soar with him the stars beyond. 
While every flbre of the brain 
To sense profound I nicely strain. 
And then arise beyond the ken 
Of common sense and common men. 
Wise fools may soar themselves above, 
And dream in rapturous spheres they move. 
But airy castles must recoil. 
And ail their imagt ry despoil. 
Thus great was I till Sbwall's crown 
About my head came tumbling down. 
But who comes next? alas! 'tis Waters 
Rushing fearless to head-quarters. 
He knows no manners, nor decorum. 
But elbows headlong to the forum. 
Uncouth and odd, abrupt and bold. 
Untaught, unteachable, uncontrolled. 
Devoid of wisdom, sense or wit, 
Not one thing right he ever hit. 
Unless by accident — not skill. 
He blundered right, against his will- 
Such am I now, no transmigration 
Can sink me to a loiver station. 
Come, Porter, come, depose this clown. 
And once for all assume the crown. 
If aught in Sewall's blood you find 
Will make your own still more refined. 
If found in Cleveland's blood a trait 
To aid you in the affairs of state. 
Select such parts, but spurn the rest. 
Never to rule my brains or breast; 
Of Waters' lilood expel the whole. 
Let not one drop pollute my soul. 
Then rule my head, then rule my heart, 
From folly, weakness, wit apart; 
With all such qualities I '11 dispense. 
And only give me common sense.

This brings to a conclusion the genealogical labors of the Compiler 
as relating to this volume. In glancing over the proof sheets some 
errors have been discovered, which are here briefly noted and corrected, 
with some additional matter received too late for insertion in the proper 
place, as follows :
