PREFACE. 



The Brainerd Genealogy was commenced with the intention of 
preparing the records in the line of the oldest son of the emigrant 
ancestor, Daniel Brainerd. Having been favored with records of 
other lines, the idea of compiling a genealogy of all the descendants 
was carried into effect. The early estimate for such a work was 
6,000 names, which number increased to upwards of 13,000, re- 
quiring much time, labor, and expense. 

Many of the early correspondents gave such information as they 
could, while others consigned the circulars or letters to the waste- 
basket or waited a more convenient opportunity, which rarely ever 
came to them. If their records are not to be found in the book, the 
delinquents must bear the blame. The younger members of the 
families in the fourth generation, a few of the third, began to scatter 
over the known portion of our country, going first to the northern 
'part of Connecticut, to New Hampshire, to Vermont, to Maine, to 
Massachusetts, the northeastern part of New York, and a few over 
the border into Canada. " The forest primeval " and the more re- 
mote uncultivated lands induced many, after a few years sojourn 
in those places, to migrate to other unoccupied lands, thereby en- 
during great discomfort and continued hardships. With the 
scarcity of paper and the infrequent correspondence with the mem- 
bers of the parental homes (letters frequently being sent by friends, 
if sent by mail the postage was twenty-five cents on each letter) 
and tlie hardships inseparable from a frontier life, the children 
learned but little of their ancestors, and when older were more 
interested in their descendants than in their past history. 
Records, if kept, were often lost or by the burning of homes were 
destroyed by fire, thus rendering it difficult to get at all times 
complete records, and to connect such records with the ancestral 
line. Ruthless hands have been a great destroyer as well as fire. 

It has been impossible to verify all records, though I have aimed 
to have them accurately transcribed. Records written at different 
times by the same individual and from members of the same family 
Have been found to van'. Many records often appear to have been 
written from memory in both church and town as well as private 
records, which will account for some discrepancies that may occur. 
Sometimes only an imperfect or partial list of the names of the 
children of a family are found recorded in the town or church 
records. 

Many marriages were entered in town records thus: James 
Jones m. Ellen . To find who Ellen was, land and pro- 
bate records must be searched if, perchance, the parent owned real 
estate, and church records if they were church members, where the 
name mav be found recorded thus : James Jones and wife. When 



10 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

these sources failed, tradition may supply the missing name. Mar- 
riages were often by a justice of the peace and no record of them 
kept,- either by church or town. 

The following paragraphs will enable the reader to estimate 
somewhat the amount of work required, as well as time spent in 
investigations, for compiling this work, 

I have examined the land and probate records of Hartford, 
which gave the first accurate information of Daniel Brainerd ; then 
of Middletown, Haddam, East Haddam, Colchester, Hebron, Marl- 
borough, Wethersfield, Glastonbury, East Hampton, Portland, Kil- 
lingp^orth. New Haven, Lyme, Conn, and land records in East 
Hartford, Branford, Guilford, Clinton, Farmington, Conn., and 
wills and records in New London, Conn., and Albany, N. Y. 

Church records have been consulted in the following places, 
viz. : In Middletown, Hartford, Haddam, East Haddam, Mil- 
lington, Gilead, Colchester, Westchester, Marlborough, East Hamp- 
ton, Haddam Neck, Middle Haddam, Killingworth, Higganum, 
Glastonbm*y, and Bristol, Conn. 

Records have been taken from genealogies wherever the name 
of Brainerd has been found and entered in the Brainerd Genealogy 
without further proof of their correctness. 

My thanks are due to the following individuals for favors kindly 
granted and for all courtesies rendered while engaged in making 
researches : 

To Elihu Geer's Sons for the use of their large collection of 
directories from all over the United States, from which were copied 
post-office addresses of those bearing the name of Brainerd; to 
the gentlemen of The Hartford Courant office for permission to ex- 
amine such of the files of The Hartford Courant' as were in their 
possession from the first issue of the paper, Oct. 29, 1764, to the 
present time; to The Connecticut Historical Society for the privilege 
of continuing such examination of the remainder of the file of that 
paper, together with such portions of other files of ancient papers 
as were found there, viz. : The New London Gazette, The Northern 
Watchman, The Middlesex Gazette, The Connecticut Mirror, The 
Hartford Times, The American Mercury, and The Sentiuel and 
Witness. 

To all who have in any way contributed to the success of my 
self-imposed task I wish to express my thanks, for without their aid 
much less would have been successfully accomplislied. Special 
mention should be made of a few who, in the early stages of my 
work, gave much and valuable assistance, viz. : The late D. W. 
Patterson of Newark Valley, N. Y. ; the late Henry Martyn Selden 
of Haddam Neck, Conn,, then of Brooklyn, N. Y. ; Martin L. Rob- 
erts of New Haven, Conn. ; Miss A. Maritta Usher of Waterville, 
N. Y. ; the late James Martin Brainerd of Gainesville, Mich. ; James 
Elisha Brainerd of the same place, who finished preparing his rec- 
ords ; the late Enos Post Brainerd of Ravenna, Ohio ; the late Henry 
Allen Brainerd of Attica, N. Y., then of San Jose, Cal. ; Homer 
Worthington Brainard of Hartford, Conn., and Rollin U. Tyler of 
Haddam, Conn. 



Preface. H 

Many thanks are to be extended to the custodians of our public 
and private libraries, which contain a large collection of historical 
and genealogical books that have been consulted, for the courteous 
privileges accorded me in my investigations, viz. : The Congressional 
Library, Washington, D. C. ; the Long Island Genealogical and 
Historical Society, Brooklyn, N^. Y. ; the State Library at the State 
House, Albany, N. Y. ; the Joel Munsell's Sons private library, 
Albany, N. Y. ; the Library of the American iVntiquarian Society, 
Worcester, Mass.; the Yale College Library, New Haven, Conn.; 
the State Library at the State House, Hartford, Conn. ; the Con- 
necticut Historical Society, Hartford, Conn.; the New England 
Genealogical and Historical Society, Boston, Mass. ; the Theological 
Seminary, Hartford, Conn., and at Memorial Hall, Hartford, where 
many of the Congregational Church records are deposited; the 
library of the late D. W. Patterson, Newark Valley, N. Y., which 
afterward was purchased by the Connecticut Historical Society, 
Hartford, Conn.; the private library of the late Edmund Janes 
Cleveland of Hartford, Conn., the compiler of the Cleveland Gen- 
ealogy ; and the library of The Case, Lockwood & Brainard Com- 
pany, Hartford, Conn., and to the late Eev. Henry M. Field, editor 
of The New York Evangelist, for the privilege of looking over the 
letters and papers pertaining to the Brainerd family in his posses- 
sion, left by his father, the late Rev. D. D. Field, D.D., before they 
were deposited in the Connecticut Historical Society of Hartford, 
Conn. 



A GENEALOGIST'S REWARD. 

The following paragraph was inserted in the circular printed 
February, 1904, of which 1,350 copies were mailed to descendants, 
viz. : " The compiling of this book (Brainerd Genealogy) and the 
arrangement of the material sent me has required many years of 
patient labor and research and has necessarily been somewhat ex- 
pensive. Many members of the family would deem it a privilege 
tp bear a portion of the expense in printing and binding so that 
the whole of my time for many years past will not have been ,<i:iven 
wholly without compensation. Those who can and will aid me in 
bearing the expense of putting the large work through the press, 
either by subscribing for a number of copies or by contributing to 
the fund for printing, are earnestly and cordially invited to do so." 

Besides my brother's family I have had sixty-six subscriptions. 
Three gentlemen subscribed for two copies each, .one gentleman 
subscribed for six copies; one lady sent me five dollars, another 
lady sent me the widow^s mite, fourteen two-cent postage stamps, 
saying in her letter that she knew I " must have been at great ex- 
pense in preparing the genealogy." 

It is more than twenty years since I took hold of the work 
earnestly, and during that time I have received no pecuniary 
assistance. I call the working years fourteen (though three or four 
more could be added to that number of years) at five hundred dol- 



12 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

lars per year (low wages for a genealogist) would be seven thousand 
dollars. I have spent in money about one thousand dollars. I call 
it five hundred dollars. The estimated cost for printing was thirty- 
five hundred dollars. At the lowest calculation the cost of the 
genealogy has been eleven thousand dollars. The genealogy was 
estimated to contain six hundred and fifty pages each volume, two 
volumes, with an index of nearly three hundred pages to be added 
(which was not included in the estimate of the size of the geneal- 
ogy given in the circular), making a total of sixteen hundred and 
fifty pages, which was offered for twelve dollars. The copies sub- 
scribed for would net seven hundred and ninety-two dollars in 
return for an outlay of eleven thousand dollars in time and money. 
Hoping for a more favorable response, the genealogy has been 
divided into seven parts, each part containing the descendants of 
one of the seven sons of the emigrant ancestor, Daniel Brainerd. 

Perhaps those who have not worked at preparing a genealogy 
infer that the facts marshal themselves in order ready for printing. 
Such is not the case. The whole genealogy has been twice written 
by hand, first, to arrange the records as sent; second, to copy and 
arrange them for reference, which copy by constant use became so 
worn that the third copying was necessary. The third copy was 
done on the typewriter by a stenographer hired for the purpose. 

In obtaining records I have had often to write six letters to find 
out where I could obtain a certain record of a family, and then as 
many more to get the record well filled out. Four bureau drawers 
packed full of letters testify to the faithfulness with which I have 
worked. I have sat at my table weeks at a time from eight o'clock 
in the morning till six o'clock at night working constantly at the 
genealogy. If there are any doubting Thomases among those who 
read this statement, let them work for a year in collecting genea- 
logical facts and they will be convinced of its truth and decide 
they had rather buy a genealogy than to prepare one. 



THE INTRODUCTION. 



THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME. 

In the survey of Domesday, Braintree has two names, Eaines 
and Branchetren, of which one is Saxon, the other British. The 
meaning is a town upon a hill or a town near a river, which last 
applies with some propriety to this place, for on the southern side 
of it is Podd's brook and on its northern, Blackwater. Braintree 
is probably derived from the two names. — Page 16, History of 
Essex Co., England. 

The name of Brainwood is said to have been derived from 
Brentwood, a small town in Essex. Brentwood is a corruption of 
Burntwood, and was derived from the burning long ago of a cir- 
cumjacent forest. 

The late Dr. Bradley of New Haven sought the origin of names 
in the meaning of words. He was said to be versed in sixteen 
different languages and had traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, 
minister plenipotentiary to the court of Siam in Polk's administra- 
tion, and for a while mandarin in China, when preparing to publish 
his book on Patrinomatology, searched in England for the origin of 
the name of Brainard. His search was not as definitely gratified 
as he wished, but he concluded from what he could ascertain that 
it was from a Celtic word noble-brained, but added that it should 
be spelled Brainard and not Brainerd, as the latter meant nothing 
at all. Therefore, as one branch spells it one way and one the 
other way, I think it a pity that both should not have the high 
privilege of being noble-brained men. His pamphlet was never 
completed, but was probably deposited in the Library of Yale Col- 
lege. 

The above paragraph was sent me by a descendant in Joshua's 
line. She has since died. 

The family is said to have come originally from the town of 
Braine in Flanders, or from the town of that name in France. 
(Braine, France, 10m. E. Soissons. There are in Flanders two 
towns called Braine, distinguished by the after name, viz. : Braine 
le Alen, 10 miles N. E. ; Braine le Comte and Braine le Comte in 
Brainault, 15m. N.-N. E. Mons. 16 S. S. W. Brussels.) 

The name Brainard is said to bfe common in France on the 
border of Germany, and that the two different ways of spelling the 
name Brainerd and Brainard are the French and German way. 

One of the descendants thought the Brainerds might be of 
Spanish descent, as the Spanish made a settlement in the south of 
England in the early history of England. 

From a letter received it is said that the first Brainerd in 
America was a boy who smuggled himself on board a vessel and 
came to this country about 1650 and was told by the captain of 



14 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

the vessel if he would take the name of Brainard he would make 
him his heir, which he did. I have found nothing to sustain this 
statement. 

It has also been said by one of the descendants that they orig- 
inated in France. 

Notwithstanding these various statements, I think the name is 
of English descent. 



No extensive research has been made in England for the an- 
cestry of Daniel Brainerd, whose birthplace, by tradition, was in 
Braintree, England, yet most interesting facts are not lacking, and 
these are here given in the hope that some future genealogist may 
be induced to make more extended investigation. 

The name is found as early as the middle of the fourteenth 
century in the form of Brendewoode or Brendewode. The different 
forms are numerous, but the name may be easily traced from 
Brendewode through Brendewood, Brandwood, Brainwood, Brayn- 
wood to the modern form Brainard or Brainerd. 

The following article, written for this work by a somewhat 
noted genealogist in England, treating of the evolution of the name, 
is here printed entire. It was mailed to me Sept. 2, 1891. 

ON THE NAME BRAINARD. 

The contribution which I willingly make to this important work 
has a precise and definite object in view, to wit, the illustration of 
the name Brainard. It is well that this be distinctly stated at the 
outset and, moreover, that with matters genealogical, I have no 
concern, so that readers may know both what to expect and what 
they must not look for in the remarks I have to offer. It is true 
that the evidence to be adduced will chiefly consist of parish regis- 
ters and wills, but these records will be used solely for my imme- 
diate purpose and will not be applied in any way to matters of 
pedigree. 

The family belief is, I understand, that the name which beyond 
the Atlantic assumed the form of Brainard was in England Brain- 
wood or Branwood, and that the English home of the parents of 
the emigrant who was himself a mere lad was in Essex. To what 
extent, if at all, this be correct is the first point which presents itself 
for investigation, and upon the result which may be reached it will 
depend whether it be necessary to pursue the inquiry in other 
directions. 

A person's name was that which was given in baptism, to which, 
in process of time, was added another, which therefore was appro- 
priately styled the surname. The sources from which surnames 
were derived were various, chief among which were personal char- 
acteristics, as Long, Short, Brown, White ; office, as Sumner, Eeave, 
Constable, Parson; occupation, as Tailor, Goldsmith, Cooper, 
Baker ; and place of abode, from which John living at Kelvedon was 
known as John de Kelvedon until de was dropped and Kelvedon 



The Introduction. 15 

became the family name. It will be perceived at a glance that, as 
respects the name whose history we are investigating, the last of 
these four sources has the best — I might almost say the only — 
promise of success, and in point of locality we are directed first to 
the county of Essex. 

There are in Essex two places which at once occur to those who 
are familiar with that part of England. Braintree suits well as 
to its earlier half, but its second is by no means adapted, to what 
we require. In substance, tree and wood are indeed not distantly 
connected, but our concern lies less with substance than with form, 
and particularly with sound. With these few words we may then 
dismiss Braintree from consideration. 

The other place is Brentwood, which in ancient time was written 
Brendewode. And here we have to show, if so it be fact, that 
there was in ancient times a family of de Brendewode or Brende- 
wode, and then that the forms which have already been mentioned 
originated from it. 

The first of these is easy and will not require many words, nor 
does the second present any feature of difficulty, though it must 
necessarily be treated of at greater length. 

There is on record the Will of a John Brendewod, which la 
dated on Friday, the vigil of Saints Perpetua and Felicitas (7 
March), A.D. 1348. The testator was a citizen of London, and he 
describes himself as a fripperer, that is to say, a dealer in second- 
hand clothes and furniture. His Will was proved and enrolled in 
the Court of Hastings of the City of London in March, 1348-49. 
A summary of it is given in the Appendix (A) as it stands in the 
Calendar of Wills of the Court of Hastings, printed by the Corpora- 
tion of the City of London (Part I, p. 537). In the same highly 
important series another testator mentions a Stephen de Brende- 
wode (Calendar, Part II, p. 100). This is William Castelyn, 
whose will, dated February 10, A.D. 1348, was not proved until 
1366-67, and who calls himself a " pheliper," which was another 
word for fripperer. These are not put forward as the earliest in- 
stances of the name, nor for any other purpose than to prove that 
five hundred years ago and upwards Brendewode was a recognized 
surname. 

The mutations and transformations, even, to which English 
names, both of persons and places, have been subject are legion in 
number, but in all the object was curtailment. However short a 
name might be, it was shortened whenever that was possible. Al- 
though a triangle might be small, our fathers saw no reason why 
they should travel round its sides when a walk along its base would 
bring them more speedily to the same destination. It will not be 
foreign to the purpose if I observe that, according to English cus- 
tom, e was and is very frequently sounded as if it were a. For an 
instance much in point we need go no further than the town which 
gave its name to the capital of what is now the State of Connecticut 
when the early settlers, whilst evidently adopting the pronuncia- 
tion, changed the spelling. Accuracy of orthography, as an ab- 
stract consideration; identity with what had been done before; 



16 B7'ainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

reproduction in writing of the local pronunciation — such were the 
conflicting claims which presented themselves to the mind of the 
parish priest in his capacity of custodian of the parochial register. 
It is probable that the first of these often weighed with men who 
were scholars, but when there was no standard how could one form 
be more accurate than any other? Nothing could be more arbitrary 
than the spelling of surnames, and when persons in a good position 
and of the best education which the age afforded spelt their names 
in different ways on the same document, who shall take upon him- 
self to say that such a way was right and such a way was wrong ? 

In Essex the form most frequently met with is Branwood. and I 
will give some instances which were brought to light in the investi- 
gations I made whilst collecting materials for the present paper. 
Indeed it will be right to say here that the facts revealed rendered 
it unnecessary to seek evidence beyond the limits of that county. 

In the parish of Little Baddow, near Chelmsford, is a mansion 
called Branwoods, a name derived, in all probability, from a former 
possessor. Among the Marriage Allegations in the Bishop of 
London's Kegistry, as printed by the Harleian Society, is one dated 
April 26, 1608, having reference to the marriage of John Bran- 
wood of Chelmsford with Ann Newman of Gingrave. In the 
earlier part of the same century administration to the effects of a 
Branwood of Fingringhoe was granted by the Consistory Court of 
the Bishop of London. In the Calendar of Wills proved about the 
same period in the Court of the Archdeacon of Essex occur the 
names William Branwood, 1632, and Richard Branwood, 1638. 
Of the latter, I took an abstract, which is printed below as Ap- 
pendix (B), where it forms a pendant to the earlier Will, of which 
a summary is also given. 

At Coggeshall the parish register contains entries which lend 
important aid in the elucidation of the matter, and for copies of 
them I have to thank an Essex antiquarian. In 1627 is the mar- 
riage of Thomas Branwood and Mary Northay, and it is followed in 
1628, 1631, and 1634 by baptisms of children of Thomas Branwood 
and Mary his wife. In 1639, on the occasion of the baptism of a 
daughter, the same parents appear as Thomas Brayntwood and 
Mary his wife, thus clearly indicating what, in the opinion of the 
Vicar or his scribe, was the real origin and true orthography of the 
name he was called upon to write. In 1646 the form is Thomas 
and Mary Brainwood, still evidently the same individuals, and in 
1653 is the marriage, as Mary Brainwood, of, we may safely assume, 
the person who in 1628 was baptized as Mary Branwood. The 
form Brainwood is analogous to what we find with respect to 
Brentford, a town in the adjoining county of Middlesex, the t 
having been almost always omitted and the name written Braine- 
ford or Brayneford. 

In 1652 Thomas Branwood, with many others, clothiers of 
Coggeshall, was a petitioner to a Cromwellite body styling itself 
the Council for Trade. 

It is, however, to Writtle we turn for evidence which almost 
appears to exist for our special benefit and which is so conclusive 



The Introduction. 17 

that it will carry conviction to the minds of all. The parish regis- 
ter, it should be stated, is not extant prior to 1634, but we soon 
pome upon entries which are decisive in their character. We start 
in 1637 (August 15th) with the marriage of William Braynard and 
Susanna Graye. Next, in 1640 (April 14th), we have the baptism 
of Susanna, daughter of William and Susanna Branwood, in a 
significant entry to which I shall revert presently. Then, in 1645, 
is the baptism of Jane, the daughter, and in 1646, of Eeginald, the 
son of William Brandewoode, and lastly, at the close of the century, 
in 1699, that of William (the son) of Reginald and Mary Branard. 

The evolution of Branard from Branwood should, perhaps, be 
explained, and it will only require a word. The letter w when 
followed by a vowel was usually omitted in speaking and often in 
writing, whence Branwood became Branood, which is very easily 
corrupted into Branard. In the Calendars of Essex Wills the name 
Brathat is found, which is a similar instance, being a manifest 
corruption of Braithwaite. So general was the custom to which I 
am now adverting that if a name beginning, for instance, Woo be 
not found under the letter \V, search should not fail to be made 
under 0. Woburn, locally, is always called Ooburn; Wokingham, 
Okingham, and so forth. Odell, in Bedfordshire, has entirely 
superseded Woodhill as the name of the village to which belonged 
an early and honored settler in New England. Brewood in Staf- 
fordshire is locally called Brood, and such instances might be multi- 
plied indefinitely. 

By a curious coincidence, the day previous to my examination 
of the registers of Writtle, I was at the house of the incumbent of 
a parish in another county, who stated that he would shortly be 
called upon to baptize the child of one of his parishioners, an agri- 
cultural laborer, and was in doubt as to how he should spell the 
surname in the register. He found, he said, so many varieties of 
the name that he could not take upon himself to determine which 
was correct, and inquiry in the parish from which he supposed the 
family to spring had only added to their number. I ventured to 
suggest that search after an assumed "correct" orthography was 
somewhat wide of the mark; that the point was to identify the 
child as the son of certain parents, and that the course was to spell 
the family name as it appeared in the entry of the father^s mar- 
riage. This view commended itself to the worthy rector, who ex- 
pressed the intention of acting upon it. 

Now, at Writtle, the writer of the entry ol 1640 proceeded upon 
a plan just the reverse, and he did this not hastily, but advisedly, 
and upon second thoughts. He first wrote Braynard ; he then drew 
the pen through all but " Bra," and for " ynard " substituted 
" nwood." A pertinent question is. Would he have done this if 
they had been two distinct names, and is not the fact of his having 
done it conclusive proof that they are identical? He could never 
have intended that the surname of the child should be different 
from his father's, but what he did mean and thought he had accom- 
plished was to give proper spelling in place of the sound conveyed 
to the ear by the popular pronunciation. 



18 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

From what lias gone before it will be seen we have proof posi- 
tive, repeated, contemporary, that Brainwood, Branwood, and the 
rest are but varieties of one and the same name derived from Brent- 
wood. And what is always matter of satisfaction, the family be- 
lief is fully and abundantly confirmed by the strongest tests to 
which it has been subjected, the evidence derived from the district 
to which our .attention was a priori directed is so complete and so 
cogent as to render needless any research in other localities. Al- 
though it has been said already, and in a last word may be repeated, 
that in the work respecting the name borne by the emigrant no 
attempt has been made to trace his family. The evidence points 
very clearly to the part of the kingdom in which any investigations 
having that end in view should be instituted.

The Introduction. ^^ 

RICHARD BRANWOOD. 

Administration of the goods of Richard Branwood, late of the 
parish of Fingringhoe, in the county of Essex, deceased, who died 
intestate, was granted by the Consistory Court of the Bishop of 
London, 14 December, 1621, to Elizabeth Branwood, widow, the 
relict of the deceased. 

(Consistory Court of London — Vicar General's Book, 1616-23, 
fo. 238.) 

• •••••••• 

The name now under consideration has been discovered in the 
parish records of London and of a good number of places on or 
near the great road leading from London through Essex to Ipswich 
and Suffolk. Doubtless further search would reveal the name in 
many other towns or villages. Ongar, Romford, Brentwood, 
Chelmsford, Colchester, and Braintree, the last named a great 
center of the cloth-weaving industry in the seventeenth century, 
have all been homes of persons bearing our family name. This 
region was the scene of Rev. Thomas Hooker's preaching, and a 
number of Hartford's first proprietors or settlers can be traced to 
the same locality. It is then no accident, but a very probable tra- 
dition which connects our Daniel Brainerd with this part of Essex. 
Indeed, we can show that there were Brainerds in Chelmsford and 
Great Baddow, places especially connected with Hooker ; in Brain- 
tree, whence came John Talcott, and probably also Joseph Loomis 
and William Wadsworth; in Bocking, whence probably came Wil- 
liam and Ozias Goodwin; in Colchester, whence possibly came 
Nathaniel Foote, and in Ongar, whence came Richard Lyman. 
These men followed Hooker to Connecticut, or in i^ome instances 
preceded him. I give below a list of such wills and administrations 
as have been found bearing the name, with their dates and the 
places in the Court records where they may be found ; then a list of 
parishes in which persons bearing our name have lived, with the 
dates from which parish registers are extant; and finally a tran- 
scription of such parish records as have been printed. In the latter 
case it is not asserted that any of the persons were of near kindred 
to our New England emigrant, though doubtless if we could but 
know there may be distant kinship. Perhaps success will reward 
some future searcher in what seems to be a promising field.

THE ORTHOGRAPHY OF THE NAME. 

In the early days of 'my work some few expressions of loyalty to 
the supposed early style of spelling the name were aroused. In not 
more than two instances have I found the name written Brainwood 
in the early records, which, by a quick pronunciation, seems to have 
been merged into Brainerd, and was so spelled by the early de- 
scendants in Haddam. Some who crossed the river to the east side 
changed the spelling from " erd " to " ard," which change has been 
accepted by many scattered throughout the United States, some 
even averring that " ard " was the correct orthography of the name. 
As early as 1704 the name has been found spelled "ard." The 
Vermont branch have spelled the name in the old English style by 
substituting y for i, as Braynard. As they were not anxious to 
have the y retained, I have "^adopted the uniform style of " erd " 
and " ard." Should some find an a where the spelling should have 



24 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy, 

been c. or an e where it should have been a, I hope it will be over- 
looked, as it was not intentional. 

The name has been found spelled in the following different ways 
in the Colonial records and in the newspapers. The following list 
of names shows when each change was made in list of representa- 
tives, viz. : 

In 1669, Braynard. In 1710, Brainard. 

" 1693, Bravnerd. '' 1711, Braynard. 

" 1695, Bravnard. " 1711, Braynerd. 

" 1696, Brainard. " 1711, Brainerd. 

'-' 1697, Brayner. " 1713, Braynerd. 

" 1698, Braynard. -"' 1715, Brainerd. 

" 1704, Brainer. " 1715, Braynerd. 

" 1705, Brainard. " 1716, Brainerd. 

" 1706, Braynard. " 1717, Brainerd. 

One of the descendants said, in writing of the spelling of the 
name, that his father had traveled much in foreign lands and was 
very learned in Philology and insisted the name should be spelled 
Brainard, and Brainard it had been spelled in his line since that 
time. He has, however, at a later date written that the name 
should be spelled Brainerd, and gives the tradition in his family 
for adopting " erd " and the spelling, which is as follows : Accord- 
ing to our family tradition, the founder of the family was the great 
Saxon Chief Bran, the Hurd, who conquered the Scottish Border 
Counties and took and Married by force and Arms the daughter of 
the chief of the Clan of Gordon, and lived and controlled the four 
border counties on the Saxon, English, or Celtic side thereof, and 
was known as Bran the Hurd, because of the great number of Cattle, 
Horses, Sheep, Goats, etc., which this great Chief owned and con- 
trolled. Bran lived in the time of James the Second, and took part 
in the Saxon conquests of the previously owned English Isles by 
Rome. These islands were afterwards conquered by the Chevalric 
Normans and then in turn ruled by six French Kings following the 
battle of Hastings which placed the Norman Duke of Normandy 
on the Throne to be afterward overthrown by the House of Planta- 
genet. 

Anyone who is interested in the above will find a clear history of 
those trying times if he will turn to the first twenty-two pages of 
the First Volume of the History of England by Macaulay. 

COAT OF ARMS. 

Hinman said Brainwood had one coat of arms, which was 
probably copied by Rev. D. D. Field in his Brainard Genealogy 
published in 1857, but I have found nothing to corroborate that 
fact or to justify anyone in laying claim to such a distinction as 
belonging to the family name.

for which privilege and courtesy I here acknowledge my sincere

20 Jan. 1786. 

A genealogical synopsis of the name Brainerd, beginning at the root, 
Mr. Daniel Brainerd, who by the best account was stolen from his native 
town, Brantrie, in the county of Essex on the Island of Great Britain 
about eight years of age. — Being brought to America, landed up Connecti- 
cut at Hartford, was sold for his passage to Mr. Wadsworth, farmer, in said 
town. 

His conditions were — 

To be learned to read and write and at the time of his freedom, twenty 
one years old, two suits of clothes. 

At the age of 21 years he labored for him, one, perhaps two years, in 
Hartford at farming. And in the year 1661 or thereabouts came and pur- 
chased a right of land near the Center west in Haddam, 25 miles below 
Hartford, upon the same river on the west side. Lived first in a cave 
covered like a small hut or cottage. We presume that he came over in the 
year 1649. It is said that his name was Brainwood, and that the family 
owned and employed two spring looms, likewise that his mother at his 
emigration, was a widow, and by a certain letter sent him by her she 
married Mr. Grey. 

In Haddam he was the first justice of the peace and commanded great 
respect, a judicious, sagacious and penetrating man, of superior sense but 
no learning. 

Beginning his settlement near the center of the town and near the 
River he married Hannah Spencer. Then married Dea. Arnold's mother. 
Then Hannah Saxton formerly Hannah Spencer. (No children by two last 
marriages. )

Brainerd Esq. of Haddam in Connecticut my ancestor in N. E.

erd (1757-1828), which ia now in the library of the American Antiquarian 
Society at Worcester, Mass. 

Dr. Field, in his " Brainerd Genealogy," said he was raised by the 
Wyllys family in Hartford, and that the letter from his mother, in which 
she spelled her name Brainwood, was received after he settled at Haddam. 
Who could mislay such a document? May we hope that it will yet be 
found. 

In the very quaint and interesting church at Braintree all the parish 
records previous to 1660 were destroyed during the troubles of the times. 

The only item upon the books involving the name and date is in one 
entry: "Sara, daughter of James Brainard, byried 2 Junne 1664." Beside 
the loss of church manuscripts, caused by Cromwell's soldiers, the whole 
of that part of Essex was decimated by the " great plague," and among 
those who died from that cause at Braintree in 1665 were two " Barnards," 
one of whom, from the differences in spelling below noted, may possibly 
have been the father of Daniel. 

The family was a prolific one, then as since, and among those proved to 
have been related the name is given in many different ways, including the 
following: Brainerd, Brainard, Brainwood, Branwood, Brainewood, Bray- 
nard, Braynerd, Branard, Branerd, Brannard, Baynard, Barnerd, Barn- 
eard, Barnard, Bernard, and Burnard. It should be remembered that few of 
the parishioners could spell at all, and that the almost equally ignorant 
parish clerks entered their names on the records according to the local 
pronunciation. 

Most, if not all, of the above are descended from Ralph Baignard, a 
favorite lieutenant of William the Norman. By the latter's order he built 
Baynard's Castle, the Western bastion of the defences of London corre- 
sponding to the Tower at the Eastern comer, a small part of the wall of 
•which castle is still standing near Blackfriars Bridge. According to 
" Doomsday Book " he received some sixty of the captured Saxon fiefs, 
the greater part being in Essex County. In an article on that book in the 
Pall Mall Magazine is a photograph of a page showing his property in 
Westminster, London, and in this, as elsewhere, his name is spelled Bain- 
iard. His arms were : " sable, a f esse between two chevrons, or." One of 
his descendants, Henry Barnard, member of Parliament during the reigns 
of Henry IV, V, and VI, generally spelled his name Baynard. Ralph's 
principal residence was in Raynes, the old name of Braintree. Later the 
family possessed the Lordship of the County, and their home was in the 
" Manor of Baynards at Missing, twelve miles from Braintree." 

Some of the sturdy American Brainerds may not appreciate having 
their progenitor come to England with William the Conqueror, but the fact 
cannot be helped. They may perhaps think it more creditable that Daniel's 
mother owned and operated " two looms." Possibly these are still in 
existence, for silk weaving remains a specialty at Braintree, as shown by 
Queen Alexandra having had her coronation robe manufactured there. 

Daniel's immediate' parentage has not been identified, and therefore 
his actual connection with the above family is not proved. By his tomb- 
stone he was born about 1641, and there is a long interval between that 
date and the battle of Hastings in 1066. Of many possibilities perhaps 
the most promising is in the records of the town of Coggeshall, six miles 
from Braintree, where, on November 23, 1624, Thomas Branwood married 
Mary Northey; but their last child, whose birth is mentioned there, is 
Grace Braynwood, born in 1639. Gray is a common name in Coggeshall, 
and Daniel's mother may have taken her second husband from the friends 
of her youth in that village. 

Yours truly, Thos. C. Brainerd. 



The Introduction. ^'^ 

JEREMIAH GATES BRAINERD. 

The following article is from notes kept by Mary G. Brainerd 
of New London, Conn., which was written by her grandfather, 
Jeremiah Gates Brainerd : 

The first Braiiiard was born in Braintree, Eng., Co. of Essex. It is also 
said he was decoyed when a boy, brought to Hartford and sold for his 
passage either into the Wadsworth or Wylys family. His Christian name 
was Daniel. It is doubtful whether he could either read or write. Had- 
dam was sold about the time he became of age. He purchased a right and 
became a settler. His first habitation was under a bank, in Haddam, near 
the old ' Burying Ground,' a little N. E. of the Court House, it was a kind 
of Mugs or ' Borough.' In 1807, the remains of it were visible. Daniel 
was a deacon and settler in Haddam and so called by way of eminence. 
He was the first and only merchant, in his day, in that town. The store 
was made of logs. He built a wharf." 

From a statistical account of the County of Middlesex by David 
D. Field: 

" The tract of land embraced in the town of Haddam was purchased 
from the Indians May 20, 1662, for thirty coats which may have been 
worth one hundred dollars. In the summer of that year it was settled by 
twenty-eight persons, of which Daniel Brainerd was one, coming from 
Hartford, Conn. All the early Proprietors of Haddam settled within the 
limits of Haddam Society, on the rising ground now known as Walkeley 
Hill, lying between the village of Haddam and Higganum. In Oct., 1668, 
the settlers were invested with town privileges, and received the name of 
Haddam, probably from Haddam or Hadham, in England, as the name of 
the town in its early history was spelled both ways. On Feb. 11, 1686, the 
assembly gave to the inhabitants a patent of all the lands which had pre- 
viously been granted them, thereby conferring the grants, with all the ap- 
purtenances and privileges, to them and their heirs forever. The settle- 
ment was confined to the western side of the river for thirty or forty years. 
About 1685 and possibly as early as 1670, some of the inhabitants of Had- 
dam, among them the Brainards, moved across to the east side of the river 
a little south of Haddam and settled East Haddam, probably in that portion 
of it which is called Creek Row, About 1712 one or two families of Brain- 
drds with others went across the river and settled on what is now called 
Haddam Neck, opposite to Haddam and extending a few miles north of 
Haddam. About 1732 or '4, some families moved a few miles farther east 
and formed a settlement which is now called Millington Society, in the 
town of East Haddam." 

Some of the grandchildren a little later moved to the town of 
Colchester; just over the boundary line dividing East Haddam from 
Colchester, and settled in the western part of the town in the parish 
of Westchester. In this line are found many of the descendants 
of the oldest son of the emigrant Daniel Brainerd. The spirit of 
enterprise which characterized the early settlers seems not to be 
waning in their descendants, as they are now found in almost ever}' 
state of the United States, and in Canada and Australia. 

Till within a few years many bearing the name of Brainerd re- 
sided within the limits of the town of Haddam, but at the present 
time a few only with the time-honored name are to be found within 
its precincts, though many descendants bearing other names are 
living there.

EXPLANATORY. 

The accompanying diagram, compiled in 1906 from descriptive matter in 
the ancient Haddam records, is intended to represent, approximately, the 
" Town Plot," or first settlement in that town, soon after 1662, and its loca- 
tion with reference to more recent and present landmarks. 

Haddam was incorporated as a town, and given its present name, in 
October, 1668; previously, it had been known as " The Plantation of Thirty 
Mile Island." 

The highway or " Country Road " through the settlement was probably 
much wider at first than is now indicated. The lots between it and the 
river were called " home lots," and the corresponding lots on the opposite 
side of the road " additional lots." The earliest houses of the settlers seem 
to have been located along this highway " from the easternmost point of 
Walkley hill down to the town grave-yard." 

The highway leading from the Court House northwesterly to Mr. Cephas 
Brainerd's place, now the main thoroughfare, does not date back to the 
settlement; and that portion of it above the " highway into ye woods," was 
not opened until the Middlesex Turnpike was established, about 1802. 

There was another original settlement, known as " The Lower Planta- 
tion," located about a mile and a half below the Court House, in what is 
now " Shailerville." 

The lots indicated on tne diagiam as belonging to Daniel Brainerd are 
described in the earliest land records at Haddam, as follows: — 

" Lands at thirtie mile Ileland Belonging to Daniell Brajmard and to 
his heirs forever: 

" One parcel of land being a home lott -with the houseing and fenceing 
thereon Containing five acres a, an halfe more or lesse, abutting one the 
great River Noreast one the Comon high way south west one the land of 
John Bayly northwest, the land of Daniel Cone South east. 

" One pareell of land being an addition to the former Containing three 
acres more or lesse,- abutting one the common high way north east one the 
Common tonne land south-west one ye highway that leads to the woods 
northwest the land of Daniel Cone South East."

First Generation. 



BRAINERD-BRAINARD GENEALOGY. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



Daniel^ Brainerd,* the progenitor of nearly all of those who 
bear the name of Brainerd in America, was probably born in 
Braintree, Essex Co., England, near the year 1641, and was 
brought to this country when about eight years of age and 
lived with the Wadsworthf family in Hartford, Conn,, remain- 
ing there until 1662, when with others, he took up land and 
made Haddam his permanent home, where was then the still- 
ness of the unbroken wilderness and where the foot of white 
man had scarcely trod. No house, with its cheery household 
and welcoming hearthstone, with its glowing fire and warm supper, 
awaited his arrival. There was no store at which he could pro- 
cure supplies, no sawmill to prepare the lumber for a house, no 
church where he might worship God in the humility of his soul, 
no families to whom he might resort in case of sickness for the 
tender care which is so much appreciated, but with the energy 
which characterized the early settlers of our country all obstacles 
were overcome, trees were felled and soon a house was ready for 
occupancy. A rude hut or house of small dimensions, of one or at 
most two rooms was probably built, which well accommodated the 
household and the few articles for housekeeping of which they were 
possessed. Houses were often built with a cellar under only a 
part of the house or under one room only, which was reached by a 
trap door. Stones gathered from the vicinity were used for the 
underpinning, covered or banked with earth and turf to protect 
from the winter's cold. These rude preparations were the founda- 
tion for other and more permanent improvements, which followed 
in due time. 

Daniel Brainerd's children were baptized in Middletown, about 
eight miles distant, before permission was granted to the citizens

•The late D. D. Field, in the Brainerd genealogy printed in 1857, 
stated that the Brainerd boy lived in the Wyllis family in Hartford. Ex- 
cepting his statement I have found nothing whatever to support it. Mr. 
Cephas Brainerd of New York city once said to me that he did not doubt 
the statement, as Hezekiah Brainerd, who died in Hartford while a member 
of the Connecticut Legislature, was taken to the house of Hezekiah Wyllis 
for funeral obsequies. As Hezekiah Wyllis and Hezekiah Brainerd married 
sisters it was very natural that his body should be taken there. He prob- 
ably stopped there while attending the legislature. I have once seen it in 
print that he was in the Wadsworth family, but did not take the title of 
the book in which it was found. Others have seen it, but are unable to 
state in what book. 

t The manuscript to which reference is made in other places said he lived 
in the Wadsworth family. The manuscript was deposited in " The Anti- 
quarian Society of Worcester, Mass.," by J. W. Thornton, Esq., June 
18, 1862.

baptize the children^ to perform the marriage ceremony, and to 
bury the dead. The journey thither was on horseback, following 
the Indian trail, which became a bridle path, with the wife seated 
on a pillion, carrying the child in her arms. The children were 
baptized as " children of ye church of Christ in Lyn (Lynn, Mass.) 
received ye Initiatory seal of ye covenant baptism by virtue of 
Communion of Churches." 

Daniel Brainerd of Haddam, Middlesex Co., Conn., m., about 
1663 or '64, Hannah Spencer,* b. about 1641 at Lynn, Mass., dau. 
of Gerrard and Hannah Spencer of Lynn, Mass., formerly of " The 
New Town," Cambridge, Mass., afterwards, about the year 1663 
or '64, one of the first settlers of Haddam, Conn. Mrs. Hannah 
(Spencer) Brainerd d. before 1691, or about that time. He m. 
(3), March 30, 1693, Mrs. Elizabeth (Wakeman) Arnold, b. 
dau. of Samuel and Elizabeth ( ) Wakeman, formerly of 
England. Samuel Wakeman d. at the Bahama Islands in 1641. 
Mrs. Arnold was mother of Deacon Arnold, f Mrs. Elizabeth 
(Wakeman) (Arnold) Brainerd d. . He m. (3), No- 
vember 29, 1698, Mrs. Hannah (Spencer) Sexton, b. probably 
April 25, 1653, and dau. of Thomas and Sarah (Bearding) 
Spencer, and widow of George Sexton,$ who was son of George 
Sexton of Windsor, Conn. Dea. Daniel Brainerd d. April 1, 
1715, ae. 74 yrs., and is buried in the ancient burying ground in 
Haddam, a few rods east of the Court House. Mrs. Hannah 
(Spencer) (Sexton) Brainerd, d. 

Daniel Brainerd's home lot in the town plot was No. 5l^, and 
was bounded west on the main street, north by John Bailie, east 
on the river, and south by Joseph Stannard. The home lots con- 
tained about four acres. 

East Haddam — Incorporated May, 1734, from Haddam. In 
Hartford until October sessions, 1741, since then in East Haddam, 
except that a small part of the town was in Chatham from May 

* In the book entitled " Our New England Ancestors and their Descend- 
ants " it says that a child older than Hannah Spencer was born in Lynn, 
Mass., so I inferred that Hannah was born there. The late D. D. Field said 
she was born in England. Gerrard Spencer, the father of Hannah (Spen- 
cer) Brainerd was born in Stotfold, Bedfordshire, England. 

■f By the manuscript Dea. Arnold's mother m. Daniel Brainwood and 
Dea. Arnold's father was Joseph Arnold; and the town records state that 
his widow m. March 30, 1693, but it does not state whom she married. 

ij: There were three early Sextons who had wives of the name of Hannah. 
Mr. H. W. Brainard, in searching for Sexton records, found that Richard 
Sexton m. June 20. 1706, Hannah, dau. of Peter Buel (Simsbury rec- 
ords). Richard d. March 27, 1714, and his estate was distributed April 
4, 1727, at which date the widow Hannah had not married again. 

Joseph Sexton, son of Thomas the miller at Boston, b. Slay 9, 1(356, 
at Boston, d. 1715 in Stonington, Conn. He m. July 15, 1680, Mrs. Han- 
nah Cheesboro, b. May 20, 1643, dau. of Capt. George and Bridget (Thom- 
son) Denison, and widow of Nathaniel Cheesboro, who d. Nov. 22, 1678. 
Joseph Sexton died the same year that Daniel Brainerd died. Not either 
of these two Hannahs could have been the third wife of Daniel Brainerd. 

Hannah, the widow of George Sexton, Jr., of Hartford, Westfield, and 
Newtown, L. I., and probably dau. of Sergt. Thomas Spencer, was un- 
doubtedly the third wife of Daniel Brainerd. I have so placed it. Other 
investigators may be able to find facts I have been unable to discover to 
prove or disprove the statement.

AT HADDAM, CONN.

session, 1830, to June 2, 1831. Colchester was taken from East 
Haddam May 29, 1833. — From Annual Report of Connecticut 
Historical Society, May, 1897. 

Daniel Brainerd* held many public offices of that day. He was 
repeatedly honored by reappointment to the office of constable, 
surveyor, fence viewer, town assessor, collector, and justice of the 
peace, and with others was one appointed to stake out land and to 
lay out highways. He was elected Commissioner by the General 
Court in Hartford, Conn., in 1669. For his services as deputy to 
the General Court see foot note p. 40. He was one of a com- 
mittee to secure a minister, Jan. 1, 1682, and was elected deacon of 
the Congregational Church in that place, serving in that capacity 
through life. 

At the present day it is interesting to note how particular the 
inhabitants, 250 years ago, were in making an inventory of all their 
household goods and their belongings or estates, therefore, I have 
printed as an item of exceeding interest to the descendants, the 
inventory and distribution of the property of Daniel Brainerd, our 
common ancestor. The will has not been found.

The Colonial Records of Connecticut (vol. 1689-1706), show^ that 
Daniel Brainard was present as a deputy to the General Court at the May 
session, 1692 (page 66), special session, June, 1692 (page 75), October 
session, 1692 (page 78), May session, 1693 (page 92), special session, 
September, 1693 (page 102), October session, 1693 (page 105), special ses- 
sion, February, 1693-4 (page 117), May session, 1695 (page 138), Octo- 
ber session, 1695 (page 149), October session, 1096 (page 174), May ses- 
sion, 1697 (page 197), October session, 1697 (page 221), special session, 
January, 1697-8 (page 235), May session, 1698 (page 244), October ses- 
sion, 1698 (page 265), May session 1701 (page 343), October session, 1701 
(page 359), May session, 1702 (page 372), October session, 1702 (page 395), 
May session, 1703 (page 407), October session, 1703 (page 434), May ses- 
sion, 1704 (page 461), October session, 1704 (page 482), May session, 
1705 (page 499), October session, 1705 (page 521), May session, 1706 
(page 532). 

The same volume also shows that Mr. Daniel Brainard was chosen 
Justice of the Peace for the county of Hartford at the May session in 1701 
(page 347) and again in May, 1704 (page 467) and a third time in May, 
1705 (page 499), May session, 1692. "This Court do for the present 
upon good considerations and until further order free Daniel Braynard 
from training." (page 71). 

May session, 1700. " Some of the inhabitants of Haddam having pre- 
sented Mr. Daniel Brainard Sr. to be established Capt. of the trainband 
there, this Court considering the present circumstances of the people there, 
doe see cause to suspend that matter till their sessions in October next " 
(page 321). 

There is no record of any further action upon this nomination of 
Daniel Brainard, Senior, as captain, and he was in all probability never 
confirmed. 

The Colonial Records (vol. 1706-1716) show that Daniel Brainard was 
present as a deputy to the General Court ( or assembly) at the special 
August session, 1710 (page 163), October (regular) session, 1710 (page 
141), October session, 1711 (page 275), November session (special) 1711 
(page 293), October session, 1712 (page 345), October session, 1715 (page 
519). 

As the records do not have the designation senior or junior after the 
name in any case it is impossible to tell whether DanieU Brainard or his 
son Daniel2 Brainard was the deputy, or Justice of the Peace. Certainly 
it was Daniel, Jr., who was deputy in October, 1715, for Daniel Senior had 
died in April of that year. It is not an impossible supposition that Dan- 
iel, Jr., was a deputy as early as 1692, and that all the later entries on the 
records refer to him. 

A Daniel Brainard was confirmed as captain in 1714 (?) (page 465, of 
vol. 1706-1716) and this was certainly Daniels Brainard.

Brainerd. He was collector May 21, 1688, surveyor the 
same year and in 1692 ; constable in 1693. He was elected 
deacon in the Congregational Church in East Haddam, 
in 1725, which office ho held during life. He was often 
chosen committee for laying out of lands in East Had- 
dam, and was chosen one of the proprietor's committee 
Jan. 5, 1782. At a town meeting held in East Haddam 
Sept. 21, 1724, Capt. Daniel Branierdf and Lieut. Joshua 
Brainerd were of the committee chosen to build a church. 
He was several times chosen representative to the General 
Court, at its semi-yearly sessions, which were held alter- 
nately at Hartford and New Haven, Conn., nearly continu- 
ously from May, 1726, to May, 1734. Dea. Daniel Brain-

7. Stephen'' BRArxARD''' {Daniel- , Daniel'-) of East Haddam, 
Middlesex Co., Conn.; m., Dec. 24, 1730, Susannah Gate^. 
b. Sept. 21, 1705, in East Haddam, dau. of Joseph 
and Elizabeth (Hungerford) Gates of the same place. He 
was a farmer, and settled in the southwest district, in West- 
chester parish, in the town of Colchester, New London Co., 
Conn., on an elevation of ground just north of the line divid- 
ing the town of East Haddam from Colchester. His removal 
was then regarded as a removal into the country ; all around 
was a dense forest, and the deer were then so plenty that 
they could be shot from their door. Tradition says his 
path from East Haddam to Westchester was marked by the 
blazing of trees. He cleared the land and made prepara- 
tion for building a house, and when Saturday night came, 
sat down on a log and looked toward home and cried 
because he was so far from home. The following week, 
on Saturday night, he was to return to his father's home, 
about five miles distant, near East Haddam Landing. He 
was accompanied by twof others when he went into the wild 
and uninhabited country. The house he built was on the 
site where his grandson, Amaziah Braiuard, afterwards 
built a house, and in which he lived during his lifetime. 
When an old man and several of his grandsons were going 
to Hamilton Co., N". Y., he wondered they could go so far 
from home. His descendants always spoke of him with the 
greatest respect, and the following incident will show him 
to be entitled to it: One night, when quite aged, several 
young men of somewhat convivial habits l^ad assembled by 
the well which was near the corner of the house where he 
had his room, and hearing their loud talk as the glass was 
passed from one to the other, he arose from his bed, and 
opening the door said, " Gentlemen, I do not allow such 
talk around my house," then closed the door. Not another 
loud word was spoken, and the group quietly dispersed, it 
is hoped with wiser and better thoughts for mending their 
habits. 
They were constituent meml)ers of the church in Westchester 
when it was formed, and probably before had belonged to 
the church in East Haddam. Mrs. Susannah (Gates) 



* Died, Jan. 2G, 1784, Caesar, negro servant to Stephen Brainard, ae. GG 
years. 

f Probably the two who accompanied him were his two future brothers- 
in-law, John and Jonathan Gates, who settled In Westchester, Coiui.

Farmington, Conn, Mr. Daniel Brainerd d. Jan. 10, 1777, 
nearly 56 yrs. of age. His gravestone says: "A man dis- 
tinguished for his public spirit and exemplary life." His 
widow married, Nov. 11, 1779, John Porter of Farmington, 
Conn. Mrs. Prudence (Gridley) (Brainerd) Porter d. 
June 8, 1811, in her 75th yr., and is buried in the Landing

He was judge of probate, justice of the peace, and town clerk 
1769-77, and member of the semi-annual sessions of the 
legislature in May and October, 1760, and from May, 1765, 
to October, 1776, inclusive. He was a farmer. Judge 
Brainerd was known as the Butternut Lawyer from the 
ordinary color of his clothing. 

From The New London Gazette of Jan. 17, 1777, the follow- 
ing is taken : "At East Haddam, on the 6th instant, Daniel 
Brainerd Esq. for a number of Years past one of the repre- 
sentatives of the Town, was suddenly struck with an 
apoplectic Disorder, which deprived him of liis Reason, 
locked up his Senses, and put an end to his life last Friday 
morning Jan. 10, in the 55th year of his age. Without the 
help of a liberal Education, in early Life, by uncommon 
Application to Study, and a diligent Improvement of his 
Time, together with the Advantages of a Mind, naturally 
penetrating and Comprehensive, he had attained that 
Degree of Knowledge, which qualified him for public Busi- 
ness, and enabled him to sustain a variety 'of Offices with 
Honor to himself and Benefit to others. He was a man of 
great Integrity, slow and deliberate in forming his Judg- 
ment, he could not be turned aside from the purpose of his 
Duty, by any of the Arts of Dissimulation, Flattery or Cor- 
ruption, his Stability of Mind and ardent Love for his 
Country, have manifested themselves for some Time past in 
his resolutely firm and unwearied Exertions for the public 
Good wherever his Influence extended and for raising effec- 
tual Opposition to the Power and violence of our Enemies; 
but the greatest and best Thing that can bo said of him, is.

He served his country in the American Revolution, both on 
sea and land. He commanded a privateer, which was for a 
time successful, and it is supposed, from his share in prizes, 
he acquired considerable property. But at length he was 
taken by the British and confined on board of a prison ship 
in New York city, and subjected to indignity and abuse. He 
lost much property at one time and another and finally his 
all at New London, when that town was taken and partly 
burned by the infamous Benedict Arnold. 

He lived in Richmond, Mass. ; from there he moved to Che- 
nango Co., N. Y., in 1788, and later to Canandaigua, N. Y., 
when there were only four log cabins in the place. He was 
poor and somewhat discouraged, but while able to labor 
sustained his family by farming and surveying lands. 
From Canandaigua he removed to Lower Sandusky, now 
Fremont, Ohio, about 1814.

" He was at Roxbury at the battle of Bunker Hill, though 
but a lad of 16 years. He was on a height, where he could 
see the battle, and near him was a large body of Ameri- 
can soldiers; among these was his brother Gideon, who 
beckoned to him and cautioned him to keep out of the range 
of the shots from the British ships of war. He was fitted 
for Yale College by Rev. Elijah Parsons, pastor of the 
church in East Haddam, and, while a member of that insti- 
tution, distinguished himself as a scholar, particularly in the 
languages, being a successful candidate for the Berkeleian 
prize. He was graduated in 1779 as a B.A. and an M.A., 
and about that time received a Lieutenant's commission, 
with a view of being an officer in one of the companies then 
proposed to be raised and constituted a part of the Ameri- 
can army. For some reason the regiment was not raised, 
though the officers were commissioned. He held his com- 
mission about a year, and during a part of that time was 
employed principally in attending to the accounts of the 
Connecticut Line at the War Office, in Philadelphia; some 
part of the time he spent at West Point. He then resigned, 
and began the study of law with Gen. Dyer Throop in East 
Haddam. He settled in New London, and, besides attend- 
ing to the duties of his profession, was honored with various 
civil offices. He was a justice of the peace from October, 
1800 to 1829, inclusive. He was on the circuit court from 
1802 to 1808, inclusive, and practicing attorney from 1780 
during his lifc._ 

" For several years he represented New London in the legisla- 
ture and was once chosen clerk of the House. He was 
appointed judge of the Supreme Court in 1806 and Mayor 
of New London in 1805, both of which offices he held till 
1829, when he resigned them in consequence of infinn 
health. His character was held in the highest estimation 
by his fellow citizens as a public man, and his domestic 
virtues adorned humanity. As a judge he was highly 
esteemed by the bench, and greatly respected by the bar. 
Stern integrity ever marked his conduct in his political 
and private life. His funeral obsequies were attended by 
the mayor, aldermen, and common council of the city, civil 
officers of the town, and a concourse of citizens, who will

Conn. Until his entrance into college his time was spent 
under the roof of his father, the Hon. Jeremiah G. Brainard. 
Having finished his preparatory studies under the direction 
of an elder brother, he entered Yale College in 1811. His 
social qualities, equally with his gifts of intellect, drew 
forth the strong regards of his more particular acquaint- 
ance in college, and he met them with the smile and the 
repartee, with the playful jest and mimic fun, which are so 
easily tolerated in the gaj^er intercourse of friends, and 
which, in him never gave offense. The possession of these 
feelings was not, however, incompatible with a tinge of 
thoughtful and almost depressing pensiveness which was 
sometimes observed on his features. 
Brainard graduated in 1815, B.A., and, returning to his native 
place, commenced the study of law in the office of his 
brother, William F. Brainard, Esq. On the completion of 
his professional course and admission to the bar he re- 
moved to the city of Middletown. with a view to the prac- 
tice of law. This was in 1819; but in the earlier part of 
the year 1822 he engaged in the duties of an editor in the 
city of Hartford, his paper being a weekly. The Connecticut 
Mirror. His career in the profession he had chosen was 
therefore short. 
With whatever gifts of intellect he was endowed, and however 
he might have excelled in the profession, had he applied 
all his powers to it, still it was not the calling he loved, 
and he had no disposition to make the desired application. 
Judging by the event he was destined to become eminent in 
another walk of life. The direction of Brainard's genius 
appeared in the poetic creations he was meditating during 
his residence in Middletown. Those lesultcd in several of 
his smaller printed poems. He also prepared at the same 
period, .several pieces for a literary paper conducted by Cor- 
nelius Tuthill, Esq., one of the earlier editors of The Chris- 
linn Spectator. The paper was published at Now Haven, 
and called The Microscope. The humorous story of Gabriel 





JOHN GARDINER CAULKINS BRAINERD. 



Fifth Generation. ^^ 

Gap in that publication was from the pen of Brainard, 
though he left it unfinished. 

His literary career as an editor and as a writer of poetry was 
short, extending only to six years. It was, nevertheless, 
important to his own fame and to his country's intellectual 
wealth. He culled every variety of sweet that lay in liis 
path, and looked on nature and man with the eye of a 
poet, and to subserve a poet's purposes. 

Three years sufficed to furnish a small volume of the poetry 
thus contributed to The Mirror, or that remained by him 
unprinted. It was published early in the year 1825. It 
was accompanied by a very brief and unpretending intro- 
duction, and left to find its way by its own merits into the 
hearts and minds of his countrymen. The naivet(5 with 
which it was committed to their attention was answered 
by a generous and general approval of its contents. 

Other fugitive pieces followed this volume, which, together 
with the former, were collected in a volume published in 
1832 by Mr. Goodsell, with a sketch of the author's life by 
Mr. Whittier prefixed. In 1842 another edition of his 
poems was given the public, published in Hartford by Ed- 
ward Hopkins, with a memoir of his life and poems in- 
scribed to his memory from the pens of Whittier. Mr.s. 
Sigourney, Snelling, and Button. 

Early was our poet called to resign life into the hand of the 
Giver. His health had begun to decline previously to the 
spring of 1827, at which period he retired from his pro- 
fessional labors, though not with a design to relinquish 
them finally. He sought repose in his native town; but 
nothing could arrest the progi-ess of his disease, which 
proved to be consumption. He lingered till the 26th of 
February, 1828, when he cheerfully departed to his rest, ae. 
31 yrs., 4 mos.. 5 dy.^. 

The following is from an address of Rev. D. D. Field at the 
second centennial anniversary of Middletown, Conn.: 

" While in Middletown he was an universal favorite, so sweet 
was his temper, so correct his taste, and so interesting his 
conversation. His fame arose especially from afterwards 
becoming the editor of The Connecticut Mirror at Hartford, 
and issuing in that periodical short pieces of prose and 
poetry. His conversion and his profession of religion were 
both remarkable, and, when he came to die, faith in Christ 
turned the shadows of death into the light of the morning." 

The late William R. Cone, of Hartford, Conn., in his reminis- 
cences of the Hartford Bar, November, 1861, sent the follow- 
ing article under the title " Old Days of Hartford, Conn..' 
to one of the Hartford papers, which is inserted here: 

J. G. C. BRAINARD, THE LAWYER POET. 

J. G. C. Brainard, John Gardiner Caulkins Brainard, was 
reckoned among the Hartford lawyers in 1826. I did not 
know him ; but afterwards heard so much of him from my 
partner, William Hungerford, who knew the whole family 
well, that I almost think of him as an early acquaintance. 
He was the son of Jeremiah G. Brainard, a judge of the 
Superior Court, and the brother of William F. Brainard. a 
lawyer with a successful practice in New London. Judge 
Brainard I have seen. He was a man of very diminutive 
stature. During his time on the bench much more form 
and ceremony was observed and more dignity given to all 
court proceedings and deference and respect shown to the 
judge than in these modern times. The judge was always 
accompanied from Iiis lodgings to his seat on the bench 



64 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 



by the sheriff, who commanded the people in the court 
room, as they entered, to " make way for the court." The 
first opening of the superior court I ever witnessed was 
Avhen Judge Brainard was holding court at New Haven. 
I heard the sherifl' cry, "Make way for the court! " and 
expected to see some man of large proportions and dignified 
deportment enter as the embodiment of the court. But 
when this little, unpretentious man took his seat upon the 
bench as the court, the absurdity of the thing made it 
ridiculous. Judge Brainard, however, was an excellent 
judge and filled this office most creditably. John G. C. 
was a plain, ordinary-looking man, careless in his dress, 
and, like his father, small in stature, which was a source 
of great annoyance to him, and any allusion to his size 
greatly distressed and disturbed him. He was a universal 
favorite, and his society peculiarly fascinating in his gayest 
moments, and in his younger life, witli his early friends, 
there was a sort of drollery about him and ready wit. This 
was also a marked feature in the character of his brother. 
Bill Brainard, as he was familiarly called, and with wliom 
John studied his profession, and between whom there was 
an inseparable attachnient which stuck out everywhere. 
It used to be said that Bill Brainard would, at any time, 
sooner lose a case than spoil a good joke. As a little sample: 
There is a maxim of law in Latin, " facit per alium, facit 
per se." In that day lawyers usually rode on horseback to 
court. Brainard and the other New London lawyers were 
on their way to court at Norwich in the winter — facing a 
cold, northeast storm of sleet and rain — and after endur- 
ing for a time the discomforts of the ride, he called to his 
lawyer friends to tell them it was an occasion when he 
had rather face it per alium (by another) than to face it 
per se (by himself) . 

THE SADNESS OF BRAINARD'S LIFE. 

Early in life at times there came upon him from some cause 
a sadness which to some extent clouded his life. He was 
never a hard student, but indolent and procrastinating, 
never doing today what could be put off till tomorrow. 
He commenced his practice at Middletown, in 1819, but it 
was by no means congenial to his taste. He was sensitive 
to a fault, and could not endure the rough and tumble of 
life. He made no effort to secure business. His office 
door was always open to everybody except a client. As a 
lawyer he was a failure, and in this greatly disappointed 
his father, brother, and friends. In 1822 he came to Hart- 
ford, opened an office here, but had no law business. He in 
fact came to act as the editor of The Connecticut Mirror ; 
but he did not make it a success. Notwithstanding his 
sensitiveness he loved society, had a host of friends, and 
not an enemy. His chief if not his only distinction was as 
a poet. His productions were hasty and unstudied, but 
had the quality of genuine poetry. " The Fall of Niagara,' 
which has been said by such writers and poets as Whittier 
to be the most beautiful description of that fall ever 
Avritten, was composed upon the spur of the moment for 
The Connecticut Mirror. Brainard had never seen Niagara. 
The printer's devil came to his office for copy for The 
Mirror, but he had none, and then while this messenger 
was waiting for him to furnish some he wrote tliese 
wonderfully beautiful and exquisite lines. Whittier, iiis 
friend, also wrote frequently without previous reflection 
and as the inspiration prompted. Standing witli a friend

of mine, viewing the falls of the Passaic, as the water came 
on rushing and pouring over the cliff, and looking down 
the stream over the green meadow and beyond, where the 
river had regained its smoothness, both became absorbed in 
the beauty and grandeur of the scene. Whittier was asked 
for a description, and instantly wrote: 

" The cloven rock and the rushing flood 
Proclaim the tremendous power of God, 
The verdant vale and the calm flowing river 
Are the types of His kindness forever and ever." 

These two poets were great friends during their residence in 
Hartford, and Whittier, after the death of his friend, edited 
a volume of his poems. His " Machit Moodus," the " Black 
Fox of Salmon River," " The Shad Spirit," and various 
other of his poems were suggested by the legends which 
were then current in the neighborhood when his grand- 
father lived on the neck of land between the Connecticut 
and Salmon Rivers. That whole region was full of ro- 
mance, with which Brainard became very familiar from 
his frequent visits to his father's early home. In 1827 his 
health failed, consumption threatened him, he hoped for 
relief, and left Hartford never to return. 

The following pieces were selected from Brainard's poems by 
his niece, Miss Mary G. Brainard of New London, Conn., 
as good examples of his genius and style: 

Fort Griswold, Sept. 6, 1781. 

^^■hat seek ye here — ye desperate band? 
Why on this rough and rocky land, 

With sly and muffled oar? 
Why in this red and bright array. 
Stealing along the fisher's bay, 

Pull ye your boats to shore? 

Day broke upon that gentlest Sound, 
Sequestered, that the sea has found 

In its adventurous roam, 
A halcyon surface — pure and deep. 
And placid as an Infant's sleep 

Cradled and rock'd at home. 

What wakes the sleeper? Harm is near — 
That strange rough whisper in his ear, 

It is a murderer's breath; 
A thousand bayonets are bright 
Beneath the blessed morning's light, 

Moving to blood and death. 

Land ye and march — but bid farewell 
To this lone Sound, its coming swell 

May moan when none can save; 
Many shall go and few return. 
That rock shall be your only urn, 

That sand your only grave. 

Across the river's placid tide. 
With steady stroke is seen to glide 

A little vent'rous boat: 
'Twas like the cloud Elijah saw, 
Small as his hand, yet soon to draw 

Its quiver'd lightnings out. 



QQ Brainei'd-Brainard Genealogy. 

'Twas like that cloud, for in it went 
A heart to spend and to be spent 

Till the last drop was shed ; 
'Twas like that cloud: it had a hand 
That o'er its lov'd, its native land • 

A shadow broad has spread. 

Ledyard! thy morning thought was brave, 
To fight, to conquer, and to save, 

Or fearlessly to die; 
Well did'st thou hold that feeling true — 
Did'st well that purpose bold pursue, 
'Till death closed down thine eye. 

I dare not tell in these poor rhymes 
That bloody tale of butchering times — 

'Tis too well known to all; 
I write not of the foeman's path, 
I write not of the battle's wrath. 

But of the Hero's fall. 

He sleeps where many brave men sleep, 
Near Groton heights; and nibbling sheep 

Their gi'assy graves have found; 
But some, they are a few, are laid 
Beneath a little swarded glade 

On Fisher's Island Sound. 

The Sound is peaceful now, as when 
It saw that arm'd array of men ; 

And one old fisher there 
Gave me this tale — 'twas he who told 
The rough, the headlong, and the bold 

How their rash fight should fare. 

He too is dead, and most are dead 
Who stood or fell, who fought or fled. 

On that September day. 
Old man ! thy bones are gently laid 
Close by j'on shatter'd oak tree's shade, 

Beside the fisher's bay. 

THE FALL OF NIAGARA. 
Lahitur ct labetur. 
The thoughts are strange that crowd into my brain, 
■ While I look upward to thee. It would seem 
As if God pour'd thee from his " hollow hand,"' 
And hung his bow upon thy awful front; 
And spoke in that loud voice, which seem'd to him 
Who dwelt in Patmos for his Saviour's sake. 
"The sound of many waters"; and had bade 
Thy flood to chronicle the ages back, 
And notch His cent'ries in the eternal rocks. 

Deep called unto deep. And what are we, 
That hear the question of that voice sublime? 
Oh, what are all the notes that ever rung 
From war's vain trumpet, by thy thundering side! 
Yea, what is all the riot man can make 
In his short life to thy unceasing roar! 
And yet, bold babbler, what art thou to Him, 
Wlio drown'd a world, and heap'd the waters far 
Above its loftiest mountains? — a light wave. 
That breaks and whispers of its Maker's might.

" QUI TRANSTULIT SUSTINET."* 

The warrior may twine round his temples the leaves 

Of the Laurel that Victory throws him; 
The Lover may smile as he joyously weaves 

The Myrtle that beauty bestows him. 
The Poet may gather his ivy, and gaze 

On its evergreen honours enchanted; 
But what are their ivies, their myrtles and bays, 

To the vine that our forefathers planted? 

Let France boast the lily — let Britain be vain 

Of her thistles, and shamrocks, and roses; 
Our shrubs and our blossoms sprout out from the main, 

And our bold shore their beauty discloses. 
With a home and a country, a soul and a God, 

What freeman with terrors is haunted? 
Bedecked with the dew drops and washed with the flood 

Is the vine that our forefathers planted. 

Then a health to the brave and the worthy that bore 

The vine whose rich clusters o'ershade us; 
They planted its root by the rocks of the shore, 

And call'd down His blessing who made us. 
And a health to the Fair who will raise up a brave 

Generation of Yankees undaunted. 
To nourish, to cherish, to honor and save 

The vine that our forefathers planted. 

STANZAS. 

On the lake of young life is a fairy boat. 

Like the sweet new moon in a summer sky; 
Through a calm of brightness it seems to float. 
And in light and beauty its course to ply. 
As sudden as a cricket's spring 

Its feathery paddles dip the seas. 
As gaily as the hum-birds wing 

Its sails arrest the scented breeze; 
And pennons bright and streamers i;ay 
Flutter above the diamond spray, 
As the keel cuts its wimpling way. 

A little boy — they call him Love — 

With dimpled cheek and sunny brow. 
And pinions like a nestling dove, 

Sits laughing on the fairy prow. 
And one as rosy bright as he. 

Bearing his torch of purest light, 
With more of joy and less of glee, 

Trims the gay bark and shapes aright 
The course, as they distance to weather and lee 
The scud of the sky and the foam of the sea. 

Two forms are their lading, two hearts are their care. 

And precious the charge that they joy to convey; 
The young and the happy, the brave and the fair. 
Have sped on their journey, how blithely away! 
But as the moon, which shone but now 

A silver streak of heavenly light, 
With added glory on her brow 

Now nobly walks the queen of night —

And firmlj' moves, though clouds arise. 

By storm and tempest fiercely driven, 
Shrouding the blue and starry skies. 

And darkening all the lights of heaven; — 
Thus sped the boat; each wale became 
Of strong and more enduring frame, 
And sternly to the sweeping blast 
Stood out the tall and gallant mast. 

That boy has strength and courage high, 
And manhood lights with thought his eye ; 
And he, the pilot, sits demure 
In dignity, serene, secure ; 
Yes, all have left their brightness now, 
A brighter hope is on each brow; 
No fancied chart, of fairy bays 
And elfin isles, direct their ways — 
A heavenly guide sits kindly there. 
Directing the co\irse of the brave and the fair, 
In yon blessed place be their anchor cast. 
And holy the haven they find at last.

of Westchester Soc, town of Colchester, Xew London Co.,

tional Church in Colchester), March 29, 1824, Huldah 
Foote, b. Dec, 4, 1791, dau. of Nathaniel and Abigail 
(Foote) Foote of Westchester, Conn. His life was spent 
in his native town, Colchester, Westchester Soc. In his 
earlier years he taught school for several seasons with suc- 
cess; later he occupied many positions of honor and trust. 
He was acting justice of the peace from 1828 to 1835.. 
inclusive, and in 1839. He represented his town in the 
legislature during the sessions of 1829 and 1830 with much 
credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. Being 
often called upon to settle local differences among his 
townsmen, he managed them wdth so much tact that he got 
the title among his neighbors of being the peace maker. 
Ho was a man of large and commanding figure, being six 
feet and one inch in height and correspondingly heavy. 
Possessing more than an ordinary degree of intelligence 
and of strict integrity, he enjoyed the honor and respect of 
his associates during life and was lamented at death. 
He was a farmer, having built his house at the time of his 
marriage on the site where his grandfather built when he 
settled in the Southwest district, Westchester Society. 
She was a teacher many seasons, having taught one 
summer at Cold Spring, Long Island, She was of a 
quiet and gentle disposition, social and pleasing in her man- 
ners, and much respected and beloved by her relatives and 
friends. If the poor needed a helper or friend, she was 
ever ready to sympathize with them and to render such aid 
as time and strength would permit her to do. The follow- 
ing words of King Lemuel in Proverbs, Chapter 31, are 
ap])licable to her : " She layeth her hands to the spindle, 
and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her 
hands to the poor : yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the 
needy. She openeth her mouth with wisdom : and in her 
tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the 
ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idle- 
ness.'' She was blind the eight last years of her life, Mr. 
Amaziah Brainard d, April 1, 1841, ae. 60 yrs., 9 mos., 
19 ds', Mrs. Huldah (Foote) Brainard* d. at Hartford,

biiried in the cemetery in the Southwest district in West- 
chester, Conn., by the side of her husband.

Va., dau. of James and iJ^ancy (Laudon) Fox. He was 
subjected to great difficulty in obtaining his early educa-

commenced the study of medicine before he was twenty 
years of age, at St. John, Lower Canada, in the same prov- 
ince, but the war of 1812 compelled him to come to the 
United States. He then went to Vermont and studied with 
Prof. John Pomeroy, and graduated at the Medical College 
in Burlington, Vt., early in 1812. He removed to Canan- 
daigua, IST. Y., and entered into partnership with Dr. Wells, 
which continued for seven years. Six months of that time, 
in 1812, he was assistant surgeon in the American army 
(Peter Allen's Regt.) but was obliged to resign on account 
of sickness. In 1816 he moved farther west, and in 1819, 
to Lower Sandusky, Fremont, Ohio, where he practiced 
medicine about 20 years, then, owing to failing health, 
declined all professional business. 
He was once elected sheriff and once mayor of Fremont, Ohio. 
He delivered a masonic temperance address before the lodge

Ewen), Sarah Ann Prentiss, b. Aug. 21, 1801, dau. of John 
and Eunice (Frink) Prentiss. 

He was fitted for college by Jacob B. C4urley, entered Yale in 
1798, and through his college course was one of the best 
scholars in his class. He graduated at Yale in 1802, M.A., 
and was made Bachelor of Arts by his Alma Mater the same 
j^ear. He studied law with his father and practiced his 
profession in New London till his death ; was an able advo- 
cate, generally interesting, often very humorous, and not 
unfrequently brilliant. He was also a fine writer. Two 
addresses of his, one delivered before a masonic lodge, 
and the other at the laying of the cornerstone of the Groton 
monument, have been published and excited much atteii- 
tion. The former passed through three editions. The 
latter is evincive of much genius and of great care and 
felicity of composition. When the disting-uished Koger 
Griswold became Governor of Connecticut he was appointed 
aid-de-camp and Capt.-Gen., and Commander, which gave 
him the rank of Colonel. He was justice of the peace for 
New London Co. for 14 vrs. ; notarv public from 1811 to 
1844, inclusive; clerk of the City Court from 1811 to 1828, 
inclusive; representative to the General Assembly in 1840; 
quartermaster of the 3d Brigade in 1810; attorney for the 
Whaling Bank of New London. 

He was the subject of some religious exercises in the revival 
at college in 1802, and though notliing saving was then 
experienced, a conviction was made upon his mind that 
experimental religion was indispensable to salvation, that 
never left him. He was a constant attendant upon public 
worship, a careful and critical hearer of the Word, and for 
quite a number of years before his death he maintained 
worship in his house from n conviction that it was a duty 
he owed his family, and tlierc is good evidence that he 
yielded to the conditions of mercy. In Jan.. 1843, he was 
admitted to membership in the First Congregational 
Church, and his friends and acquaintances rejoiced in the 
belief that when he died he was received into the joy of his 
Lord.

diner Brainard: 

SONG OF THE ROBIN. 

Never so chilly and blowy be March, 

Robin knows it's Spring: 
Tell him, if you can, when it's time to sing; 
He comes with his calendar under his wing. 
He will be ahead of the buds and leaves; 
He cannot wait for the mildest days; 
His eager spirit its note must raise. 
Hear him in morning's duskiness, 
Loving the stillness, the sombre gray. 
Plaintively caroling forth his lay. 
Till a grand chorus comes in to say: 
"We are so glad, we are wild with joy: 
God is so good that he must be praised: 
We cannot help it — wo cannot wait; 
Spring may be chilly, but Summer is late. 
Praise Him, high in the tall tree-top. 
While people are sleeping and know it not." 
Some sleepless, sad one listens and says: 
" Oh, that those wild, mad birds would stop." 

Over and over, the glad, loud song, 

Just touched with the sadness tliat clings to earth: 

Ye are not sinners — why should ye care? 

Sing as pure spirits sing; sing and share 

None of the sadness, but only the mirth. 

Robin seeks not for listeners — no; 
This is his full heart's overflow 
Unto the trees, and the clouds, and the dew, — 
Into the ear of the waking morn, — 
Piercing the earliest twilight through 
With the burst of his gushing song. 
He sings, for he must sing; he cannot wait; 
Dawn is half darkness, but sunrise is late. 
Oh, the joy of that shadowed hour! 
Bubbling over with hymns of praise; 
Never could daylight such music pour; 
Never could midday such chorus raise. 
Yet is there plaint in the melody, 
A thread of grief in the nest of song; 
The Spring brings many gladsome things, 
But many things are gone! 

Here and there, when the sunlight comes, 
Robin in singleness warbles his hymn; 
Pours out his love and his gladness of heart: 
Oh, his own song has no sadness for him. 



94: Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

Diving deep into April showers, 

Sweeter his note when the rain-drops fall: 

" I have so much to utter," he says, 

" My heart is so full that I cannot tell all." 

Spring yields to Summer, still Robin sings on; 
June lends her ear to his mystical note, 
Sometimes he tells a July afternoon 
Part of the joy that bounds into his throat: 
Farewell outgushings, sweet thoughts left till last. 
Tender good-byes, for the time glideth fast. 
" Summer is lovely, make much of it, drink 
Deeply its cup of joy, — soon 'twill have past; 
Hold fast the Spirit of Beauty so fleet. 
Listen her harmony — sit at her feet." 

Mute grow your voices, j'et linger your forms; 
True friends to Summer, ye stay while ye may; 
Then without utterance, folded your songs, 
Silently, stealthily glide ye away. 
When will ye come again? winter is long; 
Many the days before April and June : 
Never again will yc sing the same song; 
Never your tune will be just the old tune. 



OWNERSHIP. 



That which wc look on with unselfish love 

And true humility, is surely ours; 

Even as a lake looks at the stars above. 

And makes within itself a heaven of stars. 

The lowliest flower the prairie land presents 

Raising its sweet face to the far oft' sun. 

Has the whole earth for its inheritance. 

And calls the sunlight and the air its own. 

The clouds and dews and drops of falling rain. 

As ministering spirits to it come; 

Its little life has all it can contain. 

As though Creation were for it alone : 

So to the meek, the wide, wide earth is given, 

Yea, and the Maker too of earth and Heaven. 



NOT KNOWING. 
'Not knowing the things that shall befall me there." — Acts XX; 22. 

I know not what shall befall me; 

God hangs a mist o'er my eyes. 
And thus, each step of my onward path. 

He makes new scenes to rise. 
And every joy he sends me comes 

As a sweet and glad surprise. 

I see not a step before me. 

As I tread on another year: 
But the past is in God's keeping, 

The future His mercy shall clear, 
And what looks dark in the distance, 

May brighten as I draw near. 



Sixth Generation. 96 

For perhaps the dreaded future 

Is less bitter than I think: 
The Lord may sweeten the waters 

Before I stoop to drink, 
Or, if Marah must be Marah, 

He will stand beside its brink. 

It may be He keeps waiting 

Till the coming of my feet, 
Some gift of such rare blessedness, 

Some joy so strangely sweet, 
That my lips shall only tremble 

With the thanks they cannot speak. 

restful, blissful ignorance ! 
'Tis blessed not to know, 

It keeps me still in the mighty arms 

Which will not let me go, 
And hushes my soul to rest 

On the bosom which loves me so! 

So I go on not knowing; 
I would not if I might; 

1 would rather walk in the dark with God, 
Than go alone in the light; — 

I would rather walk with Him by faith. 
Than walk alone by sight. 

My heart shrinks back from trials 

Which the future may disclose. 
Yet I never had a sorrow 

But what the dear Lord chose: 
So I send the coming tears back, 

Willi the wliispered word, " He knows." 

THE LITTLE FACE OF THE LONG AGO. 

little face of the Long Ago, come back to me once more 

to-niglit. 
As I sit and dream by the fire's soft light. 
While the winds roar and rage without. 
And the snow is swirling in drifts about. 

1 shut my eyes till I feel the thrill 

Of a " vanished hand " and '' a voice that is still." 
The fire on my hearth burns high, burns low, 
And I see by the light of its fitful glow 
A little face of the Long Ago. 

A hand into mine confidingly slips 

As was its wont in the days gone by, 
And a smile is touching the parted lipa 

And lighting the beaming eye. 
Silently, side by side we sit, 
And hark to the wind and the clock's low tick 
As it softly tells of the flight of time 
And chimes the hour with a gentle chime. 
Swinging its pendulum to and fro 
While I am watching the happy glow 
On the little face of the Long Ago. 

We need no words in this quiet hour, 
The voice of Silence is louder far 



96 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 



As we sit and dieam by the hearthstone's light, 

You and I on this stormy night. 

Once more, under shadow of spreading trees 

We feel the breath of the summer breeze; 

We tliink our thoughts in some little nook, 

Or ramble through woods and beside the brook ; 

And ever I'm turning to see if 'tis so — 

If you are going the way I go 

little face of the Long Ago! 



little face where the April sky 
Of shadow and sunshine go flitting by, 
How the cloud is sent to its hiding place 
That light may shine on another's face, 
(0 sky of hope, sure thou hast not for mo 
Worn thy sweet sunset hues — it cannot be ! 
So steadfast in purpose so brave in woe 
Is the little face of the Long Ago. 



'fe^ 



The wind is softening its rage without, 

The fire on my hearth is almost out; 

I cover the embers with ashes o'er 

And sit me down in the gloom once more. 

I gaze on the ashen pile which lies 

Where the recent glow met my dreaming eyes ; 

Ah me! it is hidden beneath the snow — 

That little face of the Long Ago !

Driggs. G. H. Curtiss, an accomplished musician of that 
period, hearing her sing, advised her to go to New York 
to study. She began work about 1853, with Dr. C. W. 
Beams, then organist of the church of the Ascension. She 
sang for several years in this church, and nine years in 
St. Bartholomew's, and during this period was constantly

in demand for conceit and oratorios, and unquestionably 
ranked as tlie leading American soprano. After singing for 
some eight or nine years at Yonkers, N. Y., and for a time 
at the Broadway Tabernacle, New York city, and filling 
other church engagements, she became engaged in teaching 
vocal music under the auspices of the Presbyterian Board 
of Missions at Oakland Institute, in Asheville, N. C. She was 
without doubt the greatest artist whose career has 
originated in Waterbury, and her singing in oratorio, espec- 
ially in Handel's * Messiah,^ has been praised in the warm- 
est terms by leading critics." — From History of Waterbury. 
In a New York paper of Sept. 11, 1892, in a lengthy obituary 
notice of the late Mr. Timm, a noted musician in New 
York citj^ the following anecdote was given by him in his 
own words: " It was at the beginning of our Civil War. The 
news of the firing upon Fort Sumter had arrived the day 
before our last concert that season. We had many thousand 
copies of the \vords of ' The Star-Spangled Banner ' dis- 
tributed at the entrance of the Academy of Music on the 
evening of the concert, with the request of the audience to 
join in tlic cliorus. The audience was very large on that 
occasion. After the performance of the last piece on the 
programme the largest Hag we could procure was let down 
from the Hies of the stage, forming a background to the 
orchestra. I then led ]\liss Brainerd, who wore a scarf of 
the national colors, to the footlights. After a long and 
tremendous applause she began to sing with her fine voice 
the best of all our patriotic songs, ' The .Star-Spangled 
Banner.' I shall never forget the almost wild enthusiasm 
of the whole audience when the chorus broke ip : the wav- 
ing of handkerchiefs and hats, the tremendous noise of the 
stamping of feet and canes." 



78. Mary Anne° Bilunerd {Noadiak-\ Jarcd*, Noadiah^, Dan- 
iel-, Daniel^) of Haddam, Middlesex Co., Conn.; m., Nov. 
24, 183G (by Samuel Mills, pastor of the Congregational 
Church), Rev. Mark Ives, b. Feb. 10, 1809, son of Cephas 
and Nancy (Clark) Ives of Goshen, Conn. He attended 
Goshen Academy; graduated at Union College in 1833; at 
Andover Theo. Sem. in 1833-34; at Hartford Theo. Sem. 
(then East Windsor) in 1836; ordained at Sharon, Conn., 
Sept. 28, 1836. They sailed from Boston Dec. 14, 1836, 
as missionaries of the A. B, C. F. M. to the Sandwich 
Islands, where he remained till 1851, a space of 14 years, 
6 mos., his wife remaining three years longer. They were 
stationed at Hana on the eastern extremity of Maui from 
1837 to 1840, a place much exposed to the trade winds, 
in company with Mr. and Mrs. Conde, where no missionary 
had ever been. They were the first white ladies the natives 
had ever seen. As missionaries they were welcomed with 
an enthusiasm that was very cheering. " They would come 
twenty miles and wake us up in the night to talk with us, 
and asked all manner of strange questions. Mrs. Ives 
went into school six hours every day and the scholars in a 
few months learned to read fluently in the Bible. We 
commenced life in a house made by planting posts in tlie

ground and sticks tied across them and the whole covered 
with grass, which resembled a hay stack with a hole for a 
door, and three or four smaller holes for windows." Mr. 
Ives had a school about two miles distant, of a hundred 
scholars, and preached at distant villages. On March 21, 
1838, during his absence, their house took fire and burned 
to the gTound. This left them so much exposed to the 
elements Mrs. Ives took a severe cold and was threatened 
with consumption, and on that account they were removed 
to Kealakekua, on the eastern side of the island of Hawaii, 
where Capt. Cook was killed. His field extended 40 miles 
along the sea coast. Mr. Forbes occupied the station while 
Mr. Ives took an outpost 12 miles distant, and took the care 
of all the schools, which at the time he left had increased 

■ to a thousand scholars. 

He gathered a church of about two thousand, but his labors 
were too arduous. When he had been there nine years, one 
Sabbath, having taken forty that day into the church, in the 
midst of his sermon, he suddenly sank down in his pulpit, 
and was not able to preach again. With the advice of the 
physicians, and being commended by the mission to the 
secretary in Boston, he left the Sandwich Islands, Dec. 9, 
1850. His health not being restored as was expected, at 
the decision of the Board, his family left there Dec. 1, 1843, 
to join him in America. They lived in Cornwall, Conn., 
and he became a farmer. He moved to Danbury, Conn., 
Oct., 1883. Those who enjoyed the privilege of per- 
sonal acquaintance with Mr. and Mrs. Ives can testify 
to their rich Christian experience, the true missionary spirit 
not being exhausted by their residence in heathen lands, 
but developed and enlarged. Mrs. Mary Anne (Brainerd) 
Ives d. March 2, 1882, at Cornwall, Conn., se. 71 yrs., 
3 mos., 14 ds. Rev. Mark Ives d. March 21, 1885, ae.

lived till his death. While on his way east, in 1881, he 
stopped at a hotel in Eochester, N. Y., and was found nearly 
suffocated with gas. He revived and returned to his home. 
He was an active, energetic man, and was a carpenter as 
well as a farmer, and a man of great decision of character, 
prompt and reliable in business as well as in church mat- 
ters, in which he showed great interest and Avhere his help-

diseases could be conquered. Her theory was put in prac-

married her husband and herself went to New York state

The following article appeared in the editorial column of 
The Hartford Courant on July 3. 

" Leverett Brainard was a part of Hartford. Everybody 
knew him and he had a kind word for whomever he knew. 
He was identified with many of the corporations here whose 
success has added so much to the standing of the city in 
business circles, and he has been an important factor in 
their growth and prosperity. He was conservative but far- 
seeing, and he typified the careful, fair-minded and public- 
spirited citizen. The responsibilities that his fellow men 
imposed upon him testified most emphatically their confi- 
dence in him. He was respected and trusted as a repre- 
sentative citizen, and as a friend he was held in peculiarly 
affectionate consideration. His nature was gentle, all his 
instincts were kindly; he wished everybody well, and the 
fact was made unobtrusively evident to all who came to 
know him. He was a keen observer of men and things, 
and possessed a clever wit and a neat manner of putting his 
notions that made him always a most agreeable companion. 
Many kind things are being said of him these days, and 
they reflect the sentiments he himself entertained toward 
his fellow citizens. He had a kind heart." 

Mr. Leverett Brainard died July 2, 1902, ae. 74 yrs., 4 mos., 
19 ds., in Hartford, Conn. 

The usual commendatory resolutions were passed by the 
various organizations and societies to which he belonged, 
at their business meetings following his death. 

Mus. Brainard is a kind, self-sacrificing, and devoted mother, 
ever manifesting her zeal and interest in the welfare of her 
family and with her philanthropic spirit aiding those who 
are in need with kind words of sympathy. She has been 
greatly interested in charity work, having been director and 
president of the Union for Home Work, and was (1904) 
president of the Orphan Asylum in Hartford, which is 
under the auspices of the various Protestant Christian 
people. Mrs. Mary Jeinisha (Bulkeley) Brainerd d.

225. i. Mary Lydia, b. Nov. 14, 1867, in Hartford, Conn. 

ii. Charles Edwin, b. Dec. 10, 1869, in Hartford, Conn.; d. Oct. 
31, 1889, ae. 19 yrs., 10 mos., 21 ds. He received his pre- 
paratory education and training in the public schools, hav- 
ing graduated with honor at the Hartford Public High 
School in 1887. He immediately entered Yale University, 
and was a popular and greatly respected member of the 
junior class. This in brief is the story of his short life, 
the bright promise of which has been so sadly and sud- 
denly ended. 
He was a general favorite in the social circle in which he 
moved. Manly, self-respecting, warm-hearted, intelligent, 
he was the pride of his family and beloved by all who knew 
him. Of his death, his pastor, the Rev. W. DeLoss Love, 
writes to The Courant: 
" The young people who knew him will receive his death with 
deepest sorrow. They were all his friends, none knew him

that did not feci the strength of his young manhood. His 
Avays were quiet and gentlemanly, his words bore the 
knightly impress of a noble nature. He deserved to be 
popular, as he was, for his character was worthy of imi- 
tation among his classmates and acquaintances. Before he 
entered Yale College he united with the Pearl St. Church, 
and his manly decision and bearing then won him the es- 
teem of his seniors. His life has been eminently consistent, 
as his college friends testify. His home life was gentle and 
generous — a brother beloved, a son in whom a parent might 
rejoice." From The Hartford Courant. 

The bearers were twelve classmates of Yale. The junior class, 
of which he was a member, passed the following resolu- 
tions : 

" Whereas God in his wisdom and mercy has taken from 
amongst us Charles E. Brainard, our classmate and fellow 
student, and whereas in the three years of our college life 
we have learned to love and admire in him the attributes 
of true manhood, be it 

" Resolved, that our class in sorrow at his loss wear a badge 
of mourning for thirty days. That two representatives be 
chosen to attend his funeral, and that these resolutions be 
sent to his family in sympathy and for his memory's sake. 

" S. W. Childs, 
" J. E. Farmer, 
" Grosvenor Atterbury, 

" Committee." 

" The bereaved family have the heartfelt sympathy of this com- 
munity and their wide circle of friends. 

" Sleep sweetly, tender heart, in peace ! 
Sleep, holy spirit, blessed soul ; 
While the st^rs burn, the moons increase 
And the great ages onward roll." 

226. iii. Lucy Morgan, b. Jan. 22, 1872, in Hartford, Conn. 

iv. Robert Leverett, b. March 31, 1874, in Hartford, Conn.; d. 
Aug. 3, 1885, ae. 11 yrs., 4 mos., 24 ds., at Fenwick, Conn. 
He was a lad of good capabilities, of a sweet disposition, 
retiring in his manner and with a mind thoughtful and 
mature beyond his years, a retentive memory, and a reserve 
fund of dry humor which gave great promise of future 
usefulness. He had an inquisitive turn of mind, possessing 
those traits of character that would have rendered his life 
one to be desired. His memory lingered long in the hearts 
of the beloved home circle of which he was a member. 

V. Albert Bulkeley, b. July 9, 1876, in Hartford, Conn.; d. Nov. 
2, 1881, ae. 5 yrs., 3 mos., 24 ds., a bright, lively, and social 
boy, pleasing in speech, always meriy, of a joyous and 
affectionate disposition, and ready for a good time. The 
bright hopes anticipated for him were nipped in the bud, 
when the fell destroyer, death, claimed him for his own. 
Sorrowing parents and friends gave the final look to the

11, 1899, ae. 10 yrs., 6 mos., 5 ds. Her short life, so sud- 
denly brought to a close, has saddened the hearts of all her 
family and friends. She was a sweet and bright girl, of a 
tractable and sunny disposition, and loved by her playmates 
and friends. As the youngest of the family circle she be- 
came the pet of the household, and as her young life 
waned their hearts were filled with sadness and sorrow, 
for they knew they would never look again in this life on 
the face of the loved one. Peacefully and sweetly she went 
to her heavenly home. The angel band must have welcomed 
her with rejoicing.

They sailed for Natal, Africa, from Boston (bark Qemshok) 
Sept. 1, 1860, as missionaries of the A. B. C. F. M. to the 
Zulu nation in South Africa. After a voyage of 72 days 
they reached Port Elizabeth", where they remained eight 
days waiting for a coast steamer, and arrived at Durban, 
Port Natal, Nov. 24th. Rains and floods kept them there 
three weeks, after which time they went by ox-wagon a 
day's journey to Amanzimtoti (now Adams Mission Sta-

tion). After a few days another wagon journey, in com- 
pany with Mr. and Mrs. Ireland, took them on fifteen miles 
further to Imfume, where they remained three months with 
Mr. and Mrs. Ireland, devoting themselves to the study of 
the Zulu language. 
Mrs. Ireland's death the next year led to their being appointed 
to this station, where they remained till Oct., 1866, when 
Mr. Bridgman's broken-down condition required a change, 
and after six months at Cape Town they returned to 
America. After spending a year in St. Paul, Minn, (with 
the two oldest of their children, Burt and Amy), they left 
again for Natal in Nov., 1868. They went by steamer from 
New York to London, then on from there by sailing vessel 
{Verulan) to Durban, where they arrived early in April 
after a sea voyage of four months. They went to their old 
home at Imfume, awaiting mission appointment. In Aug- 
ust by mission appointment they went on to Umzunibo, 
where they lived and labored 27 years, till Mr. Bridginan 
changed the service of earth for the rest of heaven. It was 
a wonderful and gracious Providence that kept them theie 
till the work was so firmly established on a self-supporting 
basis that a resident missionary was no longer needed. A 
capable native pastor had been ordained and placed over 
the church, which was pledged to his support. The Um- 
zumbe Home for Girls was also fully organized, and pre- 
pared to go on in its good work with an able corps of 
teachers. Mr. Henry M. Bridgman d. Aug. 20, 1896, ae. 66 
yrs., in Sovith Africa. 
The temperance work, actively begun in 1879, had done much 
in clearing and strengthening the church, at last resulting 
in a reform in all the churches. The out-station work was 
also stimulated and enlarged, and has been going forward 
with steady and increasing power up to the present time. 
Mrs. Bridgman was president of the Natal W. C. T. U. and 
actively engaged in the work, having been appointed to that 
position by Mrs. Leavett when on her round-the-world trip. 
She gave up the presidency on account of Mr. Bridgman's 
failing health and the great distance from the work, it 
being a journey of four days by oxen to the nearest local 
union. After her husband's death she taught in the boys' 
school for two year-s, since which time she has been en- 
gaged in translating for publication, and in filling gaps, in 
teaching and other work, visiting with the people, etc., etc., 
The translated work was printed in Bogton, Mass., 1904. 
Since its completion she has returned to South Africa where 
she is (1906). 
While at Imfume and Umzumbe they were much interested in 
Sunday-school and in the woman's meeting, and among the 
people who lived near or came within their reach. Their 
children were: 
i. Burt Nichols, b. Dec. 31, 1863, in Imfume, Natal, South 
Africa; came to the United States of America for education 
in May and June, 1878; prepared for college in St. Johns-

graduated from New York University in 1889, taking high- 
est honors in a class of 180 students. He m. March, 1892,

Graduate Hospital), b. June 7, 1868, in Clarksville, N. Y.,

sionary. After inaugurating the Medical Department of the 
Mission, and carrying it on with much success till 1898, he

trade. He afterwards returned to Gainesville, N. Y., and 
engaged in farming. He then had an interest in the Gaines- 
ville Mills, grist and sawmill, the firm being known as 
Hickey & Brainerd. By his honest and upright dealing 
he gained the confidence and esteem of all with whom he 
had intercourse. He was a member of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, and was a Christian among the few who lived 
up to what he professed and believed right. He was a 
member of the A. 0. U. W. and of the E. A. TJ., and of the 
Davis Division, S. of P. His loss will be sadly felt in each 
of these organizations, in all of which he held prominent 
and important offices as long as health permitted. He 
served as supervisor and held other town offices. He was 
superintendent of the Sabbath School. He was ever ready 
for the upbuilding of every religious, temperance, and 
moral work. His mission on earth was to do good, and- 
he was never known to speak ill of any person. He was 
an affectionate and kind husband and father, and a person 
of whom no man spoke ill, and though he was called after 
having traveled life's pathway over, and while the " shadows 
still were falling toward the west," his mission on earth was 
well done and we trust our loss is his eternal gain. While 
on his way to Colorado for the benefit of his health, he 
stopped in Quincy, 111., where he d. April 10, 1888. His 
remains were brought back to Gainesville for interment.

Bryant. He left his home when a boy and sought his for- 
tune in the west, settling near Silver City, Owyhee Co., 
Idaho Ter. He returned to New York in ] 870. 

The following i's from the Silver City paper : " When about 
21 yrs. of age, he came across the plains to California as a 
teamster with the expedition of General Hancock. Arriv- 
ing in California, he resided awhile in Marysville, he then 
took the Idaho gold fever and in 1862, or ^63, came to Lew- 
iston, where he engaged in placer mining until tho gold 
fields of the Owyhee country were discovered, when he left 
that place and arrived in Silver City in 1863, with R. H. 
Tregaskis, stopping at Boon vi lie, where he was engaged as 
a clerk for a short time. He subsequently came to this 
city, where, in 1864, he opened a livery stable, which he 
conducted about one year, when he sold and took up a ranch 
in Pleasant Valley in company with a man named Killings- 
worth, and became a farmer. The Indians being on the 
war path at that time prevented their doing much farming 
and in the course of a couple of years, Killingsworth sold 
out to Mr. S. N". Smith, who, in company with Mr. Brain- 
erd, did a good business. Mr. Smith subsequently sold his 
interest in the ranch to him." 

He was a man of more than average intelligence, honest and 
industrious. He made many friends, who were always 
cordially welcomed to his home. His ranch contained a 
good house,' barn, and corrals, well stocked with several 
hundred horses and cattle. 

He was buried in the Masonic Cemetery at Hot Springs, Ark., 
lie having been a Mason in good standing at the time of his 
death.

His wife so mourned his death, and overcome with the care 
and responsibility of the large ranch, in a fit of despon- 
dency and grief, she took her life. She was universally be- 
loved by all her friends. The Masonic fraternity, of which 
her husband was a member, took charge of the remains and 
laid them by the side of her husband.

while in discharge of his duties, at Harwood Hospital, 
Washington, D. C, Nov. 1862. 

Gone from thy childhood's home, 
The hills and vales around thy place of birth 
So loved for home has charm o'er all the earth. 
The friends who mingled with thy happy youth. 
But more than all, those hearts of changeless truth 
Thy parents, oh! the thought is one of pain 
That thou may'st never come to them again. 

Beneath this earthly dome.

Gone to thy quiet rest — 
But not like thousands of our brothers brave, 
Cut down by murderous blades to unknown graves, 
Their bodies left to lie 'neath Southern skies, 
No kind friend near to catch their parting sighg. 
To smooth the locks a mother's hand hath stroked, 
And soothe with tender words the heart nigh broke. 

At thoughts of home so blest. 

But while he sought to bind 
The wounds just made by war's strong hand so red 
And give the healing balm to those who bled, 
Disease had marked him for its victim there 
And paled the cheeks and brow so young and fair; 
Thus ends tlie earth life, all his hopes are o'er 
But Heaven has welcomed him to that bright shore, 

And God is always kind. 

Gone from thy cherished one 
Whose tears are falling for the cruel doom. 
That summoned him thus early to the tomb, 
For he had chosen her to clieer his way. 
Along the varied scenes of Life's young day. 
Now God be witli her — heal the breaking heart — 
And point her to the home where friends ne'er part 

When earthly life is done. 

Ah yes, Frank's living still. 
Living in hearts that knew his virtues well. 
Living in memories that ever dwell 
To bless us, though our dear ones leave our arms, 
And earth seems dark and full of grief's alarms; 
Faith points us to the World that never fails, 
To mansions where no parting word assails 

The heart with grief to fill.

Mrs. Mary Lydia (Brainard) Cheney d. Jan. 11, 1900, ae. 
32 yrs., 1 mo., 27 ds. Her gentle life has passed away ere 
the shadows of the sunset of life had been permitted to 
gather around her, and has overwhelmed those nearest and 
dearest to her with inexpressible sorrow and grief. Amia- 
ble and lovable in disposition, courteous to all, enthusiastic 
and earnest in fulfilling her duties and obligations, a 
favorite among her young friends, she was called in early 
womanhood to yield up her life and exchange the attrac- 
tions of her earthly home for the blessedness of her heavenly 
home. 

The following article by Eev. Dr. E. P. Parker of this city 
appeared in The Hartford Courant: 

To tlie Editor of The Courant: 

You ask me for a few words concerning the departure of Mrs. Mary 
(Brainard) Cheney; I cannot say what should be said, or what I 
would say, but it would be ungracious, perhaps, to deny your 
request. 

" How is the strong staff broken," we said among ourselves but a few 
days since; and now we must add, "and the beautiful rod! " 

Of Ward Cheney* and of Mrs. Charles Cheney we may say in the 
language of the ancient lamentation, " They were lovely and 
pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided." 



* Ward Cheney was her brother-in-law, a brother of Charles Cheney. 
He died in the Philippines about the same time that Mrs. M. L. Cheney 
died, he having gone out there as a soldier in the United States Army. 



156 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

He was gentle, faithful, good, and wore the flower of chivalrous man- 
hood. 

She was "gentle, faithful, good, and wore the rose of womanhood." 

They have both been taken hence in the flower of life, and upon their 
past " hath fallen a light which tempts us to adore." 

I am quoting freely, and I must quote further, using choicer words 
than I can coin to express these values. 

If your readers would have before them a good description of Ward 
Cheney, let them find out and read Wordsworth's noble poem en- 
titled "Character of the Happy Warrior," beginning: 

"Who is the happy warrior? Who is he? 
That every man in arms would wish to be ? " 

It is too long to be quoted here, but in it, as in a mirror, are reflected 

the characteristics of that dear soul. 
In the twelfth book of Wordsworth's " Prelude " are lines whicli I 

may quote, which seem to me to well describe the beautiful and 

lovely woman who has so closely followed her brother-in-law into 

the silent Land : 

" Her eye was not the mistress of her heart, 
Far less did rules prescribed by passive taste, 
Of barren intermeddling subtleties, 
Perplex her mind; but, wise as women are 
When genial circumstance hath favored them, 
She welcomed what was given, and craved no more. 
Whate'er the scene presented to her view, 
That was the best, to that she was attuned 
By her benign simplicity of life. 
Birds in the bower, and lambs in the green field. 
Could they have known her, would have loved : 
Her very presence such a sweetness breathed, 
That flowers, and trees, and even the silent hills. 
And everything she looked on, should have had 
An intimation how she bore herself 
Towards them and to all creatures. God delights 
In such a being: for her common thoughts 
Are piety, her life is gratitude." 

These few words — so much better than any I could frame — I offer, 
in love of her who has gone to make the distant Heaven nearer 
and more homelike to us here, and in gratitude to God who feeds 
our hearts for his own service, and shows us, in our sorrows, some 
" sublime attractions of the grave." 

One single thought more I venture to express. In the deep shadow 
that has fallen around us, and in the great mystery of the dispen- 
sation in which we grope, it becomes us, if only loyal to the 
memory of these two dear souls, to consider their departure from 
us in the light of that Christian faith and hope in which they both 
lived and died, and which crowned the loveliness of tlieir lives.

third Company in the seventh Regiment in this State; that I am advanced 
in age, being about 50 years old, and my health much impaired by a rheu-

humbly desire your Honour to send me by Doctor Brainerd, a dismission

I may be authorized to make return to the Assembly now sitting.

letter written by Hezekiah Child, son of James K. Child, Jan, 6, 1864. 

The father and grandfather of Jamea Kelly Child were shipbuilders, 
which might account for his being on a privateer at such an early age. 
Mr. James Kelley Child lived to build gunboats for the war of 1812."

110. Jeptiia^ Beainerd {Simon*, AbijaJr, James", Daniel^) of 
Chatham, Middlesex Co., Conn.; m., 1779, Abigail Mack, 
b. April 10, 1760, dan. of Sanuiel and Lydia (Brain- 
crd) Mack. He moved first into Windham, Green Co., 
X. Y., and in 1801 to Luzerne Co., ]^a. He was a farmer 
by occupation, though he served as a sailor for a time 
and was sent to Nova Scotia as a government agent. He 
served seven years in the Eevolutionary War, and was in 
many a liard-fought battle ; was taken prisoner by the 
British and confined on board of one of those horrid prison 
ships, where he suffered all the privations and insults, the 
accounts of which are familiar to all readers of American 
history. 

He was a man of coiisiderable wealth at the time of his death, 
which he accumulated by honest and persevering industry. 
He encountered almost every vicissitude of; fortune, being 
in perils often — in the perils by the sea, upon the battle- 
field, in tlie prison ship — yet he lived to a good old age. 

In person he was rather above the medium height; strong 
and muscular and of good ability intellectually. If energy 
and determination would insure success, he seldom failed. 
He was a kind neighbor, an exemplary and benevolent 
Christian. The traveler and wayfaring man enjoyed his 
liospitality ; the beggar and impecunious man were relieved 
from his purse. Sociable and friendly to all, a capital 
story teller, though he always adhered strictly to truth, 
never drawing upon his imagination for facts. He was 
often called upon for counsel in public matters or to 
adjudicate differences between neighl)ors ; was once a mem- 
ber of the legislature. Thus honored and respected by all 
who knew him, he passed through the world leaving no 
stain upon his reputation; retaining his mental faculties to 
the last; always thankful to that Providence M'liose good- 
ness and mercy had followed him all the days of his life. 

He first came to Pennsylvania in 1801, bringing teams, house- 
hold furniture, and some farming implements. He pur- 
chased a section of land from Colonel Hale, a Connecticut 
claimant, and built mills, but the title proving worthless, 
he lost the whole. He then purchased a section of state's 
land. He made an opening on the right bank of the 
Wapasoning Creek and built a log house, which he oc- 
cupied till 1809, Avhen he built a frame house near the 
center of his farm and of the townsliip. The early 
Brainerds were all hunters, and two of them crossed the

creek in early winter and killed a deer. The creek was 
high, and after they succeeded in getting the deer to the 
creek, how were they to get it across the stream, as the 
water was high? There was no way of crossing except on 
a foot pole, but when nearly over, the wheelbarrow struck 
a stake and threw wheelbarrow and all into the deepest 
water of the creek, so they got not only a deer but a duck. 
She was a good nurse for the sick, an excellent cook, and 
a Methodist of the St. Paul order who believed in showing 
her faith by her works. Mr. Jeptha Brainerd d. July 3, 
1825, ae. 71 yrs., at Windham, Penn, Mrs. Abigail (Mack) 
Brainerd d. in 1837.

1831 to the end of his life. He was in New York when 
the British landed on Long Island, and was with the army 
at White Plains and in the engagement. He subsequently 
served on board of a privateer under Captain Tinker of 
the United States Navy. He left the army in 1780 on 
account of ill health. He was Captain of the town military 
company and justice of the peace in Haddam, Conn. He 
moved to Lempster in 1780, being one of the early set- 
tlers in that town. In 1810 he moved to Washington, 
N. H., and in 1847 to Cleveland, Ohio. He made a profes-

sistent. He was deacon in the church in Lempster and in

Sixth Generation. H*^ 

Mr. Wadleigh; res. Stevens Point, Wis.; two children. 6. 
Verbena. 7. Eliza. 8. May. 9. Albertina, a teacher. 

He served his apprenticeship in the office of The Herkimer 
American for several years. Thurlow Weed also served his 
apprenticeship in that office. At that time Mr. Ellis be- 
came intimately acquainted with Frank P. Skinner, since 
secretary of the United States treasury, and son of Domi- 
nie Skinner, a much loved and revered minister of the 
gospel at Herkimer. He listened to the earnest solicitation 
of Rev. Eleazer Williams, — since famous for his claims foj- 
the Dauphinship, — to join him in the Oneida Castle as a 
teacher to the Oneida Indians. In 1819 he engaged to give 
instruction to the young Oneidas in English branches and 
in singing. Almost every night Mr. Williams taught him 
the Mohawk language. During his absence Mr. Ellis read 
the church prayers and homilies. He continued in Mr. 
Williams employ for nearly three years. In 1822 he was 
appointed by the Domestic Foreign Mission Society of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church a catechist and lay-reader 
to the Oneidas at Green Bay, Wis., which position he held 
for nearly five years. 

In 1827 Governor Cass made Mr. Ellis Inspector of the Pro- 
vision Government Lands, by the Surveyor-General, Ed- 
ward Tiffin, in July, 1828. In the fall of 1830 he was 
chosen Secretary, and requested to construct a map for a 
delegation of the Messosinissee Indians visiting Washing- 
ton under the charge of their Indian Agent, Col. C. S. 
Stambough. 

In August, 1832, he was appointed a commissioner to survey 
and establish a boundary line between the Menominee and 
New York Indians, and in 1833 he was designated by the 
Surveyor-General to survey a large district of public lands 
near Green Bay, Wis., which by renewed appointments in 
1834-1835 was extended to neighboring districts. In 1836 
he was elected a member from Brown Co. to the legislative 
assembly of the territory, and after serving one year 
resigned, and in 1837 was appointed by President Van 
Buren Surveyor-General of Wisconsin and Iowa, which 
position he filled till 1841, when he resigned. He again 
served in the territorial Legislature, and was afterward 
appointed sub-Indian Agent of the District of Green Bay, 
serving in that capacity till 1848, when he resigned. In 
1853 he was appointed Receiver of the Land Office at 
Stevens Point, and reappointed in 1858, filling the position 
till 1862. 

He served for five years as mayor of Stevens Point, when he 
declined to fill the position of honor for any longer period 
of time. On Dec. 3, 1833, when there was no white settler 
in Milwaukee but Solomon Juneau, he issued the first 
newspaper ever published within the boundaries of Wis- 
consin, and called The Green Bay Intelligencer. Mr. 
Albert Gallatin Ellis died Dec. 23, 1885, at Stevens Point, 
Wis.

dam, Conn., son of John and Elizabeth (Marshall) Willev. 
Mrs. Sally (Brainerd) Willey died Feb. 25, 1825. The 
following is an obituary notice which appeared at that time: 
" In the death of Mrs. Willey her friends and family have 
sustained an irreparable loss. As a wife and mother it may 
be truly said of her, she guided her affairs with much dis- 
cretion. Nor was her attention wholly inclined to the tem- 
poral interests of those about her, but she was anxious to 
bring up her family in the steps in which she had for many 
years walked — the steps which lead to eternal happiness. 
In the domestic circle she was much valued. Brothers and 
sisters participated in the happiness which her distinguished 
virtues inspired; the children of her love found in her a 
faithful instructor and friend, and the husband of her 
youth every joy and the balm of every sorrow. The religion 
which she professed was not an ideal fancy that dwelt upon 
the exterior of the mind, and enjoyed the dismal ecstasies 
of fanatical speculation. No, indeed ! it was the enlivening 
and active faith of that Gospel which has brought life and 
immortality to light. It was a deep and settled principle 
of the heart, which sweetly mingled itself with the affec- 
tions, incorporated itself with the disposition, and produced 
a happy result to the entire character of the professor."

Willey d. . Hon. Calvin Willey d. Aug. 33, 1858, 

ae. 81 yrs., 11 mos., 8 ds., in Stafford, Conn. 

The following sketch was taken from The History of Tol- 
land, written by Judge Waldo : 

" Calvin Willey was admitted to the bar Feb., 1798, and 
opened an office in Chatham, but in 1800 removed to Staf- 
ford, where he was chosen to the Legislature, and was post- 
master from 1806 to 1808, when he removed to Tolland 
and was there postmaster from 1818 to 1825, and was six 
times elected to the General Assembly and twice to the 
State Senate. He was an unsuccessful candidate for Con- 
gress in 1820, being defeated because he had, in 1819, al- 
lowed his name on a union ticket of Federalists and Demo- 
crats for state senator, he being a Democrat. In 1824 he 
was a candidate for TJ. S. Senate, but was defeated. In 
1825 he was elected to that body and served six years, till 
1831, when he returned to the practice of his profession, but 
did not regain his former standing. In 1834 he returned 
to Stafford. He was a man of more than ordinary in- 
tellect, and his attainments as a lawyer were very fair. At 
one time he stood at the head of the bar in Tolland County, 
lie always entered into the cause of his client with his 
whole heart; indeed, he often became so identified with his 
client as to make success a matter of personal feeling, and 
he sometimes lost sight of the true interests of his client 
in his zeal to defend the claims he set up. At the close of 
his life the bar of Tolland County noticed his memory by 
appropriate resolutions."

Captain Daniel and Nancy (Waite) Chadwick of Lyme,

Academy, Munson, Mass.; graduated at Yale College in 
1834 and received the degree of A.M. He pursued his 
theological studies at Andover, Mass., and spent one year 
at Princeton, N. J., but graduated at Yale Theological 
Seminary in 1837. He preached for a while in Acworth, 
near Londonderry, N. H. In Oct., 1840, he was invited 
to become pastor of the ancient Congregational Church in 
Lyme, Conn., and was ordained and installed ever it June 
30, 1841. He lived there during his pastorate, thirty-four 
years, and until his death, during which time he witnessed 
several seasons of special religious interest, and became 
widely known and esteemed as an exemplary and gentle- 
manly man, a thorough scholar, a learned divine, a faithful 
and devoted pastor, and an admirable presiding officer in 
ecclesiastical bodies. In an unusual degree he secured the 
confidence and personal regard of the ministerial circle to 
which he belonged. He was noted for his high sense of 
dignity and usefulness in the Christian ministry, and gave 
himself exclusively to its duties with a continuous strain, 
which may have shortened his life. In 1861, he was elected 
Fellow of Yale' College, and from 1867 till his death served 
on its prudential committee with great acceptance. Within 
the last year or two of his life his health visibly declined, 
but he continued to fill his pulpit until the 21st of March, 
1875, when, after preparing himself for the Sabbath serv- 
ices, he was seized with faintness and forced to devolve the 
service on his deacons. He never met his people again. 
No .apparent disease. Great debility without pain, ever 
growing till the end. His last days were full of peace. 
He was satisfied that whether he lived or died all would be 
right. At times his peace rose into high spiritual enjoy- 
ment, in anticipation of the rest remaining for the people 
of God. His funeral was attended by a very large number 
of clergymen. Ex-President Woolsey, Rev. Dr. Bacon, 
and President Porter of Yale College spoke in very high 
terms of the deceased and particularly of the manner in 
which he met the duties of the responsible trust in which 
he was associated with them. He was laid to his rest amid 
profuse flowers and evergreens bespeaking the immortal life 
he had won. He was many years a member of the board of 
education and school visitor, both in Lyme and Old Lyme. 
He was moderator of the Connecticut Association in 1871.

279. Hezekiah'' Brainard (Jesse^, Eliakim\ Gideon^, James-, 
DanieV) of Leyden, Lewis Co., N, Y. ; m., Sept. 10, 
1822, Lovisa Johnson, b. Nov. 19, 1799, in Buckland, 
Mass., daughter of Josiah and Martha -(Taylor) Johnson. 
Mrs. Lovisa (Johnson) Brainerd d. March IG, 1859. in 
Tama Co., Iowa. He m. (2), about 1861, Mary A. Tal- 
bot, b. Feb. 28, 1821, in Avon, Conn., daughter of John 
and Cynthia (Moses) Talbot. He spent his early child- 
hood days at the old homestead in Haddam, Conn. When 
about ^, years of age he, with his parents, removed to 
Lewis Co., X. Y., that being considered as the " extreme 
west.^' The journey was accomplished by means of oxen 
and a cart, most of the family walking the entire distance. 
At the age of 13 years he enlisted in the war of 1812, served 
at Sacketts Harbor, for which service he was drawing a 
pension at the time of his death. He was an honorary 
member of the G. A. K. At the age of 21 years he pledged 
himself to total abstinence, which pledge he kept inviolate 
throughout his long life. 

He early united with the church, and was always thereafter 
a member of the Congregational or Presbyterian Church, 
filling the office of deacon in each, and was familiarly 
known as " Deaeon Brainard." After the death of his 
father, Jesse Brainerd, he removed to Geauga Co., Ohio, 
going by way of Erie canal from Rome to Buffalo, taking 
steamer for Cleveland, Ohio. Here he chopped away the 
timber to clear a farm, while his good wife carded wool 
and flax, and spun and wove the cloth necessary for the 
family raiment. The sale of produce for years was in 
" barter." It was considered very fortunate if one occa- 
sionally got 25 cents to pay the postage on the not fre- 
quent letters from the east, or cash to pay the taxes as they 
became due. 

He voted at seventeen presidential elections, first as a Whig 
and then as a staunch Republican. He took great interest 
in current affairs and kept posted on all the leading events 
of the day. He resided for a short time in. Toledo, Va. 
In 1864 he returned to his old home in Chester, Ohio, where 
he lived until his death, his wife surviving him and 
remaining at the old homestead. As a man Mr. Brainerd 
was above reproach, honest, thrifty, and industrious, thiis 
he was enabled early in life to lay by a sufficiency for old 
age. 

There is a story told of him that when a young man he was 
elected president of the lyceum held in the " Deestrict 
schulehouse," It devolved upon him, the president, to 
criticise or point out any errors made by performers. Upon 
the conclusion of one young man's debate, young Brain- 
erd arose and with great dignity said, " You have done 
exceedingly well, but I think you put too much stress on 
the verb ' my.' " Such a scoring as he received caused him 



l^-l Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. ■ 

to pursue the study until he was equaled by few as a 
grammarian. 

His extremely long life was due, perhaps, more to his very 
temperate habits than to a particularly robust constitu- 
tion. He ceased to live ; quietly, peacefully, like unto the 
stopping of some intricate machine whose cogs become so

the classics at Lowville Academy, N. Y., afterwards with 
Oliver C. Grovernor at Rome, N. Y., having in view a 
learned profession. After graduating from the Academy 
at Lowville, N. Y., he left home at the age of seventeen 
to earn money for further education by teaching school. 
An omnivorous reader with a singularly retentive memory, 
most of his knowledge was self-taught, but he secured 
competent instructors in classics and mathematics. Event- 
ually he began the study of law at Eome, N. Y., at first 
with Alanson Burnet, Esq., and later with Hon. Henry 
H. Foster and Hon. Chester Hayden, giving much promise 
of professional success. He united with the church in 
1825, and two years later the death of his fiancee, whose 
affection had been an imceasing stimulus, put a sudden 
end to his legal ambition. Deciding to enter the ministry, 
for which purpose further funds were necessary, he took 
charge of a large school in Philadelphia, studying there 
with Rev. Dr. Patterson. In August, 1828, he entered 
Andover Theological Seminary, graduating in 1831. 
Ordained in New York on October 7th of that year, with 
ten others as Home Missionaries, he married a few days 
later, and with his young wife, started for the " Far West." 
At Cincinnati, he was retained by the Home Missionary 
Agency, and made their clerk at an annual salary of one 
hundred dollars. Soon he was settled as pastor of the 
South Church in that city, which increased his salary by 
six hundred dollars. On this income his wife and himself 
'' lived comfortably," and in three years repaid three 
hundred dollars that he owed for his education at Andover. 
Meantime he continued his missionary work in the adjoin- 
ing states, on one occasion preaching in a log cabin while 
the father of General Harrison held a candle over the bible 
page. In 1883 he became editor of The Cincinnati 
Journal, a religious paper which obtained a large circula- 
tion under his management, and he also established The 
Youth's Magazine, a pioneer in its line of religious 
literature. He espoused the cause of Dr. Lyman Beecher, 
who was then head of Lane Theological Seminary, 
encountering much opposition on account of his " New 
School Theology." For some years he was Dr. Beecher's 
assistant in the pastorate of the Second Presbyterian 
Church, Cincinnati, Ohio. 
In 1836, hiring young Henry Ward Beecher to take charge 
of his papers in his absence, he came as a delegate to the 
General Assembly in Philadelphia, preaching one sabbath 
in the Old Pine Street Church in that city. Several months 
later, he received and accepted a call from that church, 
one of the oldest congregations in America and rich in 
Colonial history. For thirty years he was their devoted 
pastor, admitting 1200 to membership, marrying 800 
couples, baptizing their children and burying their dead.

His efforts were not confined to his own church, for his 
great delight was to hold outside meetings in the public 
markets or wherever an audience could be quickly collected. 

During the Civil War he was earnest in support of the 
Government, both in the pulpit and elsewhere, so that 130 
young men of his congregation entered the army or navy. 
One of his last acts was to erect a tablet in the vestibule 
of the church to 18 who lost their lives in the struggle. 
When Lee retired from Gettysburg, and on his final sur- 
render to Grant, Dr. Brainerd conducted the religious 
services at the spontaneous meetings of citizens, which 
completely filled Independence Square. A history of his 
old church, published in 1905, calls him " the great patriot 
pastor of Philadelphia." 

In 1865 he published a " Life of John Brainerd," a brotlier 
of David Brainerd and successor of the latter as Mis- 
sionary to the Indians. He was a frequent contributor 
to magazines and to the press generally, believing greatly 
in this mode of influence, and was a founder and associate 
editor of the " Presbyterian Quarterly Review." 

He received the degree of D.D. from Amherst College in 
1848, was moderator of the General Assembly of the 
Presbyterian Church in 1864, and at the time of his death 
chairman of the committee for reunion of the Old and 
New School. His life, written by his widow, was published 
by Lippincott & Co., in 1870. 

He was characterized by great common sense, and by a 
command of voice and language, that secured him instant 
attention and influence in any assemblage. In connection 
with his lifelong friend. Rev. Albert Barnes, a great part 
of the growth of their denomination, in the erection of 
churches and otherwise, was due to their efforts. 

He was a kindred spirit with the Rev. Albert Barnes, with 
whom he was long contemporary in common labors and 
ecclesiastical burdens. Concerning this friendship an 
editorial in The New York Evangelist 24 years after his 
death says : Never, probably, were two prominent min- 
isters truer yoke-fellows. Equally conscientious and sen- 
sitive to duty, and if need be, intrepid in word and deed, 
each came to fully know and admire the traits of. the 
other, diverse though they might be from his own. The 
one was naturally eloquent, and at times impassioned of 
speech, while the other was restrained, and apt to main- 
tain a judicial air and temper throughout his carefully 
ordered discourse. Complementing each other thus, there 
was a peculiar beauty in their lives, and a power un- 
matched by men who stand apart. The immediate circle 
in which they moved was naturally a favored one, and there 
were perhaps many who shared and contributed to its 
interest. One of these, the beloved wife of Dr. Brainerd, 
has lingered long and most happily with her children, so

that she has only recentl}^, and at a great age, fallen on 
sleep. — Ed. Ev. 

An obituary notice said of him, " As a business man he was 
marked by industry and integrity. He was a man of 
strong mind and good judgment, a man of quick wit and 
few words, a good citizen, a trusted friend, an affectionate 
and indulgent parent, and for more than half a century 
lived a humble and consistent Christian life." 

The following on Mrs. Brainerd's death is from The Evan- 
gelist: "Of the best Puritan stock, she was devoted to 
family and friends until an early widowhood. Then she 
took the place of her husband as editor of The Christian 
Intelligencer, and afterwards started and conducted at 
New Haven The Microcosm, a very successful monthly 
magazine that was the pioneer of publication for the home 
circle. At that time Thomas Brainerd was pastor of a 
western church and editor of The Cincinnati Journal, a 
Presbyterian newspaper having the largest circulation of 
any printed in the Mississippi valley. Visiting New 
Haven in 1836, he was urged by Leonard Bacon to make 
the acquaintance of and marry the editor of The Micro- 
cosm, as the ideal wife for a literary clergyman. An intro- 
duction 'and a wedding followed. Shortly afterward Mr. 
Brainerd became pastor of ' Old Pine Street Church ' in 
Philadelphia, and for over thirty years his wife was his 
coadjutor in the ministry, if not in the pulpit, being 
adviser and friend of the whole congregation, as their home 
was the center of ecclesiastical life in that city during the 
stirring times from 1837 to 1865. 

"After her husband's sudden death, while chairman of the 
Assembly's Committee on Reunion, she wrote his life, pub- 
lished by Lippincott in 1870 — a book that portrays his 
history and times in strong, gi'aphic English, with a sub- 
purpose of enforcing the duties and value of the ministry. 
On this account it has been selected several times by 
thoughtful men for presentation to each member of the 
graduating class in our theological seminaries, and is 
found in the small library of many a young clergyman. 
Ever since 1830 Mrs. Brainerd has been a frequent writer 
for the newspaper press, her contributions being welcomed 
and full of vitality after she had passed the 81st year of 
her age. 

" Having removed to Canada with her only son, she con- 
tinued a large correspondence, and on her 80th birthday 
received nearly one hundred letters of remembrance, 
including over sixty from members of the church in Phila- 
delphia, from which she had then been separated for 
twenty years. 

" Her last illness was borne with the patience she had shown 
through life, and though greatly disappointed that she did 
not ' die on Christmas,' as a change of symptoms had led

her to hope^ she waited eagerly, but with resignation, for 
the end to come. At her request her body was taken to 
Philadelphia, and placed beside that of her husband, under 
the walls of the old church that was ever in her thoughts, 
and in the presence of a very large assemblage that em- 
braced in some cases three generations of those whom she 
had counselled, comforted, and loved." Kev. Thomas 
Brainord died Aug. 22, 18GG, ae. 62 years, 2 months, 5 
days, in Scranton, Pa. Mrs. Mary (Whiting) (Whiting) 
Brainerd died Feb. 12, 1889, in her 83d year, at the resi-

daughter of George and Mary Ann (Farrier) Johnson. 
He possessed many qualities of manhood that gave him the 
respect and esteem of all with whom lie came in contact. 
The selfishness of human nature was in him less developed 
than in the average of jnankind. It was never his practice 
to drive a close bargain or to barter for his undue gain. 
He was notably willing to live and let live — to do unto 
others as he would have them do unto him. He sought and 
knew no other way than to perform his duties and to meet 
his engagements promptly. He offended no one and lived 
a quiet, useful life. Politically Mr. Brainerd was a life- 
long Democrat, giving his unvarying support to the party 
from Andrew Jackson's time to the present. His blame- 
less life was well rounded out in fourscore years. His 
good examples and his memory will long be cherished by

1826, in Willoughby, Ohio, Fanny Pelton, h. Feb., 178G, 
in Montgomery Co., N. Y., 'dau. of Ebenezer and Pru- 
dence (Bogart) Pelton. He commenced teaching school 
when about 20 years of age. He was a noted instrumental 
musician. He afterward studied medicine and practiced 
his profession in Willoughby, Lake Co., Ohio. He left the 
practice of his profession at that place and entered the 
Mexican war as surgeon and officer, where he lost his hand 
by a field piece. Here he received great honors, and was 
promoted to a generalship. After the close of the war, he 
held various posts and arsenals in the United States service, 
and furnished supplies for the Indians. His health fail- 
ing, he resigned his position and returned to Willoughby. 
Dr. Asahel Brainerd died in 1850. Mrs. Fanny (Pelton) 
Brainerd died Nov., 1878. 
The following is from a book entitled " 47 Congress, 3 Ses- 



sion." 



Asahel Brainerd's first service was while quite a youth, as a 
militiaman, at Sackett's Harbor, under General Jacob 
Brown. His next was as one of Forsyth's riflemen, in 
which capacity he was at the taking of York, Upper 
Canada, when he was wounded. He afterward was drum 
major of a regiment commanded by Colonel Dobbin in 
Gen. D. B. Portel's brigade and was engaged at Chippewa, 
Lundy's Lane, and Fort Erie. The corps of musicians in 
this campaign in 1814 were converted into fighting men. 
They were armed with rifles and the command was given 
to Brainerd. It was at the head of this company that he 
served at Chippewa, Lundy's Lane, and at Fort Erie. He 
appears to have been actively engaged, to have displayed 
great gallantry, and to have rendered great service. 

At the sortie at Fort Erie he was twice wounded and car- 
ried from the field. The bill for a pension was favorably 
reported.

July 4, 1857, and with Mr. W. M, Diistin, established 
under the firm name of Brainerd & Dustin, the first bank 
in that place, in a wooden building, on the site now occu- 
■ pied by Spellman's elevator. He was president, book- 
keeper, teller, and bank clerk. The firm continued until 
Nov., 1860, when he sold out and moved upon his farm 
north of the city. About the year 1867, or '70, he was 
again in the banking business, with J. F. D. Elliott, in 
what was a portion of the Commercial Hotel. He brought 
to his business good judgment, and easy mastery of the 
most important matters in a given transaction, and as a 
result was almost uniforaily successful. He was a man of 
large mental capacity, of resolute purpose, and indefatiga- 
ble industry. He was a consistent member of the Presby- 
terian Church and took a great interest in its work. In his 
later years, he manifested the maturing power of divine 
grace in a remarkable way. He conversed freely of his 
probable death and of the realities of the unseen world. 
His faith was triumphant over the weakness of the flesh, 
and he looked forward with perfect trust to the heavenly 
life of whose reality he had so often spoken in other years, 
when in the full vigor of his health. The remains were 
talcen to Springfield, 111., and laid to rest in Oakridge

in New Haven, Conn., dau. of Louis Peek and Harriet 
Augusta (Brown) Morehouse. He received his education 
at Brainerd Academy, Haddam, taking the first prize for 
an essay. He graduated from the Yale Law School in the 
class of 1859, and took the second prize there. He went 
to Chicago in Oct., 1859, and had hardly got started in his 
profession when the war cloud burst over the country. In 
1861 he got permission to recruit men for the army. He 
was appointed 2d Lieutenant of Co. B, 51st Eegt., 111. 
Vol. For subsequent service, in the same direction, he was 
promoted to Captain, Mch. 1, 1862, of Co. D, the same 
Eegiment. This company was weak in numbers. Over- 
work, stimulated by a desire to promptly bring it to the re- 
quired standard, impaired his health. The Regiment re- 
ceived marching orders and he met it at Cairo, with a 
squad of raw men, and immediately entered upon the cam- 
paign which resulted in the taking of Island No. 10. He 
served in the battle of Shiloh and Hamburg Landing. Ex- 
posure at New Madrid prostrated him with the worst form 
of army dysentery. His life was despaired of and he was 
only saved by the attention of two army nurses, after the 
surgeon had given him up. He was moved from the wet 
ground to a log house and put upon a clean bed, hope came 
and he lived. The Colonel insisted upon a furlough for 
him for 30 days. This was extended by advice of the post 
surgeon at Camp Douglas, to 60 days. On the 59th day, 
still weak, he joined the Regiment before Corinth, only to 
find himself mustered out of service under Hallock's 
famous order. After a short rest, goaded by chagrin, he

raised a full company for the 72d Eegt., 111. Vol., but his 
family physician prevented the consummation of his plans, 
on the ground that the attempt would prove useless to the 
service, and fatal to himself. So the company was turned 
over to Capt. French, who was killed. 
He was unable to lead a sedentary life for some three years, 
and, therefore, solicited for life insurance, and did some 
collecting, until he finally worked into the real estate busi- 
ness. He was an operator, buying and selling and making 
improvements. He has done something in the Kenwood 
property, the choicest suburb of Chicago. He now lives at 
So. Englewood, where he owns some 95 acres. The subur- 
ban line of the R. I. and P. R. R. goes through his interest 
on 89th St., where a depot is now located, and called Brain- 
erd Station. It was to his imexcelled ability and indomi- 
table perseverance that the development of that choice ter- 
ritory was due. For nearly a year, and against tbe fiercest 
opposition, he labored to secure direct railway facilities for 
that locality. His success was complete. ]\Ir. Ezra
