" He lived in the house built by his father in Middle Had- 
dam. Conn., a little east of Quarry Hill. The quarry was 
opened by him about 1762. The stones were carted to the 
wharves on the Connecticut Eiver and then transported 
by sailing craft to Long Island, Massachusetts, New York, 
Maryland, and Virginia, and some were carried to New 
Orleans, La., to be used as paving and curbing. 

" The sterling good sense of Ezra Brainerd early attracted 
the notice of Haddam people, connected witii his fair 
moral and religious character, and he gained and long 
received the respect and confidence of the community 



* Campton, N. H., at the town meeting, March, 1783, voted that three 
of Chiliab Brainerd's children be set up at vendue by the selectmen to

year.

where he lived and throughout the state. He was elected 
deacon in the Middle Haddam Congregational Church 
Nov, 27, 1771, and held the office till death removed him. 
He was justice of the peace for Middlesex Co. from 1785 
to 1798, inclusive, and for Haddam from 1799 to 1817, 
inclusive. As justice of the peace, he was noted for the 
many marriage ceremonies he performed, and for the fact 
that he usually gave the fee taken from the bridegroom 
to the bride. He represented the town of Haddam in 
the General Assembly of Connecticut for thirty-three ses- 
sions, there being two yearly sessions until the year 1824, 
when yearly spring sessions were adopted. He acquired 
to an unusual degree the respect and confidence of that 
body. He did not speak often nor long, but he listened 
with profound attention to what was said by others and 
after making up his mind he sometimes briefly expressed 
his convictions, which strongly commended themselves to 
his associates." He was one of the two delegates 
from Haddam to the ConnLcticut Constitutional Conven- 
tion in 1818. 
He held the offices of Lieut., Capt., Lieut-Col.-Com., and 2d 
Major in the 9th Regt., 1st Brigade, in succession from 
1797 to 1815, inclusive^ and had command of the Com- 
pany stationed at Harlem Heights. 

" He was an example of temperance, as well as of piety, and 
that long before the temperance reformation began. In 
the latter part of his life he was accustomed daily, when 
the weather was favorable, to go out and sit upon a rock 
above his quarry, almost directly over it, for the purpose 
of meditation ; and a better place could hardly have been 
selected, whether he wished to contemplate the goodness of 
God towards him in his descent from a pious ancestry in 
sustaining him under arduous labors and numerous re- 
sponsibilities, or the display of his attributes in his won- 
derful works. Within the reach of his eye were the resi- 
dences and burial places of his first American ancestors, 
and of many of his kindred. Immediately about him were 
the scenes of his labors, engagements and trials, while 
before him an extended am])hithoatre of liills and moun- 
tains, vales and meadows, with the beautiful Connecticut 
Eiver meandering through them, rendered the more in- 
teresting by a busy navigation the most of the year. 
There, probably, very often he presented his silent adora- 
tions, his thanksgivings, and his supplications to the God 
of nature and of grace. At length, having thus lived, 
on the 7th of April, 1837, ae. 93, he was gathered to his 
fathers, even as a shock of com is gathered in its season, 
being fully ripe. 

" His funeral was attended the following Sabbath, when a 
sermon was preached by Eev. D. D. Field to the large 
assembly collected to show respect to his character and to

follow him to the grave, from Rev. XIV : 13, ' And I 
heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write Blessed 
are the dead, which die in the Lord, from henceforth, yea, 
saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors ; and 
their works do follow them.' " — From Rev. D. D. Field's 
sketch of him in Brainerd Genealogy, 

From The Connecticut Courount of July 15, 1837, is found the 
following: "Among the mourners at his funeral were 
his eldest son ae. 75, a grandson ae. 50, and a great 
grandson ae. 30."

brother Chiliab and five others were chosen a committee 
of safety during the Revolutionary War. In 1785 he 
went to Danville, Vt., and was there at the organization 
of the town; he left in the winter but in the following 
spring he returned with his family. He was selectman 
several years and held many other offices. It is stated by 
one correspondent that he spent twenty years in Campton 
before taking up his residence in Danville. He was re- 
garded as a man of superior ability and of devoted piety, 
being much respected by all his associates.

(Hine) Huntington of Middle Haddam, Conn. He made 
a profession of religion at the age of 16 years. In child- 
hood he attended the district school summer and winter, 
and then labored on the fann and in the summer months 
worked in a quarry, attending school in the winter. At 
the age of 17 he taught in the winter and worked in 
summer. At 20 years of age he commenced the study of 
Latin with Eev. Thomas W. Bray of North Guilford, and 
had Lyman Beecher for a schoolmate. After seven 
months of study, he entered college Sept., 1793, graduating 
in 1797 from Yale College. He then taught in an 
academy on Granfield Hill, established by the late Presi- 
dent Dwight; and then in an academy at Albany, N. Y. 
In the spring of 1799 he commenced the study of 
Theology in the family of Rev. Charles Backus, D.D., of 
Somers, and was licensed to preach in October of the 
same year by the Tolland Association. He supplied the 
parishes of Union, North Coventry, and Guilford. He 
accepted a call and was ordained over the First Church 
of Christ in Guilford* June 11, 1800. His ministry there

was successful until his dismissal, June 11, 1806. He 
was chaplain of the 2d Eegt., Cav., 2d Brigade, in 
1805-'06. On leaving Guilford, he preached six months 
in Derby, and in Sept., 1806, removed to Verona, Oneida 
Co., N. Y. He then commenced a missionary tour of 
four months in the western counties of New York and the 
adjacent counties of Pennsylvania, and at different 
periods he went over the counties of Oswego, Jefferson, 
and Lewis and several towns of Oneida County and 
preached the gospel from Ontario on the north, to Wysox 
on the Susquehanna River, 16 miles below Tioga County. 
In Sept., 1807, he was installed pastor of the First Church 
in Verona, with liberty to travel as a missionary a part 
of the time for four years. Here he remained thirty 
years, a laborious and successful minister of the Gospel. 
He witnessed four revivals in Verona: viz., in the years 
1810, 1818, 1825, 1835. During the revival of 1810 he 
said : " One evening, at meeting, there was such a mani- 
festation of the divine glory and presence, that all the 
pious present were swallowed up and lost in joy and con- 
templation ; it was a foretaste of heaven, and the same is 
still fresh in my memory." But the revival of 1818 was 
the greatest; it produced an accession to the church of 
more than a hundred members; fifty- four at one time. 
In 1836 he resigned his charge in Verona and became a 
missionary among the destitute churches within the 
bounds of Oneida Presbytevy for one year, preached two 
summers in Crawford Co., Pa., and removed, in 1838, to 
Oneida Castle, and preached there three years. He then 
returned to Verona and retired from regular ministerial 
labor, after having preached constantly for forty years. 
He then resided on his farm in Verona, or rather, sep- 
arated from Verona only by a common highway. He 
preached at the age of seventy-five, and wrote articles for 
the religious journals in his neighborhood. While a pas- 
tor at Verona he was commissioner of common schools 
for that town, and for some years licensed the teachers 
and inspected the schools. 
In 1812, he published two sermons in pamphlet, one on the 
Doctrines of Grace, Free Agency, and the Use of Means, 
and the other on the Termination of the Old Dispensation, 
and the Commencement of the New. In the religious 
journals of western New York he published several arti- 
cles in defense of the Presbyterian mode of Church Gov- 
ernment; and besides other miscellaneous articles, he 
published ten letters addressed to a Romish Priest. All

his publications if collected would make a small volume. 
Of his religious experience, he said, " I have had great 
enjoyment in the things of religion, especially in revivals ; 
I have also had seasons of distressing darkness; and 
now I .look forward, at times, in assurance of a blessed 
immortality." 

During the fifty-six years of his ministry he was -greatly in- 
debted to the untiring industry and economy of his wife. 
She was a woman of rare qualities. Friends who knew 
her in early life describe her as delicate and beautiful. 
Her genial temperament and ready wit rendered her 
social qualities attractive, alike to the ignorant and 
learned. Her warm sympathy with all classes was par- 
ticularly endearing; none could be long with her without 
' being convinced that she wished to do them good, botJi 
temporally and spiritually. Her quiet performance of 
household duties, her night long watchings by the sick 
bed, her earnest prayers and her meek submission in afflic- 
tion, all indicated a cheerful and chastened spirit.

husking corn in the field he could hear bears husking in 
another part of the field. He put up the first frame 
building, a barn, in 1809. He cleared his land which has 
been divided into four farms, now occupied by Brainerds. 
He aided in building a numlDcr of churches. In 1819 he 
built a frame house, making a temperance raising, and 
making a barrel of new cider for the raising, telling 
them, " There would be no rum but plenty of new cider." 
No one came to the raising on that day ; but on the next 
day every man came, and the raising was continued 
without any more trouble. He was a deacon in the 
Congregational Church, as was his father, son, and grand- 
gon, all of the name of Israel. The Brainerds in this 
section were known as very honest people, ready to help 
any religious cause. They were very strict on the Sabbath 
day, commencing it on Saturday night at six o'clock. 
One of the Brainerds said it was very essential for them 
to be right, for if they were wrong nothing could right 
them. The first child was born in a log house, with only 
the earth for a floor. Mrs. Eoxselana (Houghton) Brain-

" Mr. Brainerd was well known as one of the early settlers

and died, in the forest, with only Indians for his neigh- 
bors and Indian trails for public roads. He built the 
first log house in the village of Hartland. He ever 
evinced a deep interest in whatever concerned the public 
good. He assisted in the organization of the first school 
district in the town, was at the first religious meeting, 
and aided in the establishment of the first Christian 
Church. He was at the first and every funeral in his 
neighborhood while he lived. He was chosen deacon of the 
Congregational Church, which ofiice he held during life. 
These few facts are an index of his general character. 
His death was truly a public loss and a deep affliction to 
his bereaved family." Mr. Norman Brainerd d. Sept.

Presbyterian clergyman of fine taste and nature, whose 
life was devoted mainly to teaching. At different times 
he was principal of the Academy at Chittenango, Onon- 
daga Valley, and Eiga, Monroe Co., N. Y. He also 
taught successfully for several years a private school in 
Syracuse. Eev. George W. Thomson d. Feb. 5, 1872, ae. 
60 yrs., 4 mos., 3 ds., in Buffalo, N. Y., and is buried in 
Kirkland Cemetery, N". Y. 
The following is from The Syracuse Journal: — 
" From her earliest youth Mrs. Thomson was distinguished 
not only for deep piety, but for a life of extreme forget- 
fulness of self. Her charity for others, often at the cost 
to herself of severe self-denial and sacrifice, was almost 
unbounded and was frequently an astonishment to those 
around her. As was the case with her husband, a large 
portion of her life, besides being occupied with family 
cares, was given to teaching, though after she became, a 
widow much of her time was filled with literary work, 
principally for the press. For a period of more than fif- 



Sixth Generation. 105 

teen of her years, Mrs. Thomson lived in Washington, D. 
C, for nearly the whole of which time she was the valued 
correspondent of The Journal, the weight of oncoming 
years and her consequent change of residence alone sun- 
dering her relations with this paper. Her letters, over 
the nom de plume of " Chinquipin," were among the best 
written from the national capital. She had a clear com- 
prehension of general and political subjects, a ready grasp 
of passing events, a quick ear to hear and eye to see that 
which would interest others, together with a facility and 
grace of expression that made her letters a feature of the 
paper. Mrs. Thomson enjoyed a deserved popularity 
among the Washington correspondents, and was especially 
a favorite with the lady correspondents, among whom she 
was a pioneer and an example. Her acquaintance with 
public men and prominent people at Washington was 
wdde, and the esteem in which she was held by them was 
noticeable. Mrs. Thomson also was a welcome occasional 
contributor to The Chicago Advance, and The New York 
Evangelist. 

" To the possession of a well-disciplined mind was added 
a breadth of information, a strength of intellect and a 
geniality of spirit that made her one of the most inter- 
esting of companions. Her conversation was at once en- 
tertaining and instructive, marked by sound common 
sense and a practical knowledge of affairs. A pleasing 
trait of her character was her habit always to put the best 
possible construction upon the words and acts of others. 

" Mrs. Thomson's last trying illness, since the 27th of Decem- 
ber last, was borne with patience, sweetness and resigna- 
tion, and her thoughtfulness and consideration for others 
continued to the end. A beautiful life has gone out, as 
far as this world is concerned; but its influence will live 
in the mind and hearts of many, whose sorrows she has 
shared and to whom she has given sympathy and comfort 
in time of trial. Even in her d}dng hours it cheered her 
to learn of far-absent ones who teach their children to 
think of her with love and gratitude for her beautiful 
example and influence in years gone by. During her 
residence in this city, Mrs. Thomson was a member of 
the First Presbyterian Church ; upon removal to Wash- 
ington she imited with the New York Avenue Presby- 
terian Church of that city, where her membership re- 
mains." 
Mrs. Elizabeth (Brainerd) Thomson d. June 11, 1890, ae. 
73 yrs., 9 mos., 7 ds., in Syracuse, N. Y., at the home of 
her daughter, Mrs. Ernst Held.

of Vermont, where he remained for three years. On re- 
covering from a severe fit of sickness he determined to 
leave the law for the gospel. He entered the Theological 
Seminary at Andover, Mass., where he graduated in Sept., 
1839 ; was licensed to preach by the Andover Association, 
meeting with Prof. Ralph Emerson, D.D., Andover, Apr. 
22, 1839. Beginning the supply of the Presbyterian 
Church, in Londonderry, N. H., in June, 1840, he was 
ordained as its pastor Nov. 5, 1840, and remained there 
till, at his own request, he was dismissed in 1855 and re- 
installed in Halifax, Mass., as pastor of the Plymouth 
Congregational Church, from which he was dismissed 
Oct., 1866, and moved to Grinnell, Iowa, carrying on 
a farm for three years, and afterward residing in the 
city, where he was repeatedly one of the Examining Com- 
mittee of Iowa College. 
From the Necrology of the Andover Theogical Seminary, 
Ex-President George F. Magoun, D.D. (class of 1844), 
writes of him : " Mr. Brainerd was a man of unusually 
clear, penetrating, and discriminating mind. What he 
knew was known with exactness, and used with the firm- 
ness and thoroughness begotten of such knowledge. As 
a man of affairs he acted with precision. His lifelong 
and scholarly study of the Greek Testament and his defi- 
nite and strong religious views were characteristic. He 
could not be anything less than an ardent patriot, an 
unswerving reformer in respect to intemperance and 
slavery, a loyal and eager believer in the evangelical faith. 
To the last he followed the political interests of the na- 
tion, the fortunes of prohibition, the criticism affecting 
the doctrines of orthodoxy, with lively interest and the 
deepest solicitude. In his conversation, and especially in 
his prayers, his familiarity with and apt use of "the 
Avords the Holy Ghost teacheth " were exceptional. Very 
venerable, and honored in simple ways in keeping with 
Iiis marked character, was his presence in all the circles in 
which he moved. Piev. Timothy Green Brainerd d. May

Conference in 1838, and was stationed at Pittsford, in 
the Eocliester District. In 1855 lie was transferred to 
the California Conference and was appointed paslur of 
the Powell St. Church, San Francisco, Cal. in 185U, he 
was elected editor of The Califonda Christian Advocate. 
He was re-elected to the same olfice in 1860, and again in 
1864. He rendered important service in estaldishing the 
Methodist Book Depository, and served as agent of the 
business for a period of six years, while editing Tiie 
Advocate. In 1868 he was elected second assistant agent 
of the New York Book Concern, and placed in charge of 
the business in San Francisco, Cal. 
" At a recent session of the California Conference lie was ap- 
pointed presiding elder of the Petaluma District. He 
had been twice chosen a delegate to the Genesee Con- 
ference, being a member of the session in 1852, in Boston, 
and of the Conference in 1860, in Buffalo, IST. Y. 
" He was on the Western coast a period of eighteen years, 
rendering valuable service in advancing the kingdom of 
Christ. In the pulpit he was ready, earnest, and strong. 
He possessed rare social qualifications, which rendered 
him a welcome companion and guest wherever he went. 
" Some four weeks ago i)r. Tliomas was appointed a member 
of the Peace Commission, to assist in reconciling the 
Modoc Indians, who had made raids on the settlers in the 
southeastern portion of Oregon. The commission con- 
sisted of Hon. A. B. ]\ieaehani, Dr. E. Thomas, and L. S. 
Dyar, Esq. They were accompanied by Gen. Canby, 
who was commander of the military department, and 
Capt. Kiddles and his native wife, who served as inter- 
preters. 
" On Friday, the 11th, the Commissioners consented to meet 
the Modocs on what was neutral ground. There were 
eight Indians present. Several speeches were made with- 
out any beneficial results, when at a signal given by 
' Capt. Jack,' an attack was made upon the Commis- 
sioners. Gen. Canby was shot and instantly killed. Dr. 
Thomas received two shots, either of which would have 
proved mortal, the first entering his breast, passing 
through his lung, and the other entered his brain. Mr. 
Mcacham Avas shot down and will probably recover. Mr. 
Dyar made his escape unharmed. 
" As he was about to start for the scene of the conflict, a 
friend said to him, ' Dr. Thomas, you are not going to the 
Modoc Country to be killed by the Indians ? ' his re- 
sponse was thoughtful and characteristic, ' The will of the 
Lord be done.' "

Academy, he commenced special efforts for the educa- 
tion of teachers; these efforts were for several successive 
years particularly noticed by the Regents of the Univer- 
sity in their reports to the legislature, and resulted in

several Senatorial Districts of the State ; one of which was 
located in St. Lawrence Academy. About 100 teachers

during that time. In March, 1883, he was appointed 
Railroad and Warehouse Commissioner, serving two years. 
For eight years he was on the Committee of Appeals for 
the inspection of grain. In politics he was a Republican. 
He was trustee of the Village Board of Evanston for three 
terms, and for three years was town collector. His life 
was a busy and useful one, also an eventful one. 

Extract of a sermon preached at his funeral by Rev. C. F. 
Bradley : " Of his character as a husband, father, friend 
and neighbor 1 can speak with a personal knowledge. 
Though not particularly demonstrative in words, his 
utterances were invariably friendly and cordial and he 
seemed to seek opportunities to express his neighborliness 
by acts of generosity and kindness. It was exceedingly 
interesting to observe his unusual love of nature. His 
garden with its vegetables, fruit and flowers was his con- 
stant delight. His conversation indicated a mind richly 
stored with the results of wide observation of men and 
things. A shrewd judgment, clearly defined convictions, 
manly independence, and a marked gift of terse and pithy 
expression. To the strictness of his business integrity 
a Chicago friend bore particular witness lately, saying 
that he had many opportunities in trade from which a 
man less scrupulously conscientious would have heaped a 
fortune. Outside of his own home and neighborhood his 
generosity was best known to the poor and neglected. 
This morning there came to the door a colored man, ask- 
ing the privilege to look upon his face once more. En- 
tering the room, he said, pointing to the casket, ' There 
lies a man that was a friend to me when I had no bread.' " 

A man's home life is ever one of tlie severest tests of his 
character, and in his home life he was signally devoted 
and beloved. A husband, father and grandfather, he 
showed a kindness, patience and generosity which made 
his presence a perpetual blessing, and which made his 
memory a precious heritage. For many months past it 
had been evident to him and others that the end was draw- 
ing near. He had passed his three score years and ten. 
He watched for the approaching change with calmness, 
often saying he was willing to trust all his interest to his 
God in whom he believed, feeling that all would be well, 
and so suddenly and painlessly came the end. Mr. Wil- 
liam Newell Brainerd d. May 19, 1894, in Evanston, 111.

for Photography and the Languages. 

An extract from a memorial read before the Brooklyn Academy of 





GEO. BRADFORD BRAINERD 



Seventh Generation. 155 

Photography will give a more accurate account of his pursuits. " In 1873, 
Mr. Brainerd was Deputy Water Purveyor, of the city of Brooklyn, and 
published a work entitled Water Works of Brooklj-n, in which he showed 
a thoroufifh acquaintance with the geological, chemical, and general sanitary 
features of the subject. His work as water Purveyor obliged him to spend 
much time in street cars and he decided to utilize the time so passed in 
learning the languages. The success of this studious economy of moments 
was evinced in his acquiring a reading acquaintance with twelve languages. 
He was also a student of natural history, and the first collection of 
mosses and lichens belonging to the L. I. Historical Society, are of his 
classifying. Mr. Brainerd began his work as an amateur photographer 
in 1858. He was then 13 years of age, and made some crude cameras 
with which he took small ambrotypes. He continued to make cameras aim- 
ing all the time to take instantaneous subjects. He repeatedly mentioned 
that he thought the happiest moment of his life was when he developed 
his first successful picture of this kind. A few years ago, he perfected a 
system for photographing the vocal organs. Since then laryngeal photo- 
graphing is an established success. This statement is limited to a few 
words, but the actual labor involved in the achievement, was very great. 
Since Dr. Tliomas R. French, of Brooklyn, made and Mr. Brainerd devel- 
oped 2,,500 exposures before their fir.st fair success was attained." 

Dr. Tliomas R. French read a paper before the Section of Laryngology, 
at the International Medical Congress, Copenhagen, Aug. 15, 1884, on this 
subject for which great credit was given to him and Mr. Brainerd for their 
success in these experiments, as no such success had been attained hereto- 
fore in this line. He left a collection of 2,500 negatives of views of L. I., 
Conn. River, and Hudson River, and street views of Brooklyn and New York 
which have since been donated to the Brookljni Academy of Photography, 
He also left a large collection of birds' skins numbering 400, also a fine 
collection of shells and minerals. His herbarium consisting of Phonog- 
amous plants, ferns, mosses, lichens, and Algea, have been donated to the 
Brooklyn Institute, and also the 400 bird skins. 

The children are buried in Rock Landing Cemetery, Haddam Neck,

doctors, and received their official certificates, signed by 
such world-renowned names as Carl von Rokitansky, 
Thomas Billroth, Adam Politizer, S. L. Schenk, and 
others equally well known to the medical profession. 

When in Vienna she quite distinguished herself in surgery, 
and was one of six to be recommended by Prof. Thomas 
Billroth to the late Emperor of Eussia for the position 
of surgeon in the Russian Army, to be sent to the Balkan 
Mountains. She was accepted and assigned a place in the 
order of the Eed Cross. But alas ! The Red Cross was 
exchanged for the Iron Cross when the United States 
minister at St. Petersburg, Russia, wrote her he could not 
(would not) sign a woman^s passport for such a danger- 
ous position. She then turned her face toward her 
motherland. 

Returning by way of England, she attended for six months 
the Clinics of Sir T. Spencer Wells at the Samaritan, 
and of Sir Morrell Mackenzie at the Golden Square 
Hospitals. 

In 1878, she commenced the practice of medicine in New 
York City. In 1888, she gave up her large and lucrative 
practice and sailed from San Francisco in company with 
Pundita Ramabai and her teachers for Japan, China, 
and India. At Bombay she established a hospital and 
medical school for High Cast Hindoo Women. She re- 
mained in India several years, and gave herself to the 
work of establishing a society, called Sorosis, and in- 
structed them in parliamentary tactics. After remaining 
there about four years, she sailed to Australia to engage 
in delivering a course of lectures. In 1895, she left Aus- 
tralia, and after visiting various countries returned in 
1900, to America. Mrs. Emma (Brainerd) Ryder d.

government, and has the title of captain. Mrs. Harriet 
Brainerd of Chicago, 111., first became known as a self- 
supporting woman, having drifted into the profession 
of teaching, in order to follow out the calling to which 
she had the strongest inclination. She was a graduate of 
Cornell College, and for some years a fellow of the 
Chicago University. Later on, business depressions hav- 
ing decreased her income, she began, at the suggestion of 
a friend, to make gingerbread for a new cafe or tea room. 
From this her venture spread until she became a sort of 
caterer for some of the best tea and coffee houses, supply- 
ing them with pickles, salads, jellies, rolls of different 
sorts, and many kinds of cake. The railroads also came 
in for a share of her attention, and were, she said, excel- 
lent patrons, as they always took the best of everything. 
She kept up her literary life and was en rapport with 
every movement of the day in which intelligent thinkers 
are interested. She was President of the Woman's Re- 
lief Corps in Chicago for a number of 5^ears, and was 
very patriotic and untiring in her efforts for the good of 
old soldiers. Mrs. Harriet (Carroll) (Edgell) Brainerd

ended his school privileges. At 13 years of age, the farm 
not being very productive and many to support and 
clothe, he left home to work for wages. He still con- 
tinued working on a farm, after clothing himself, he sent 
the remainder of his wages to his parents. He then left 
farming and became a clerk in a store. His health failing 
him at the age of 20 he went to Lawrence, Mass., where

Methodist Church when a young man, and for a number 
of years has been a leading member and superintendent

" His early life was spent in the town of his birth, where he 
received his preparation for college. Through the in- 
fluence of the Kev. Dr. J. E. Kankin he was lud to enter 
Middlebury College in the autumn of 18()0. He grad- 
uated in 18G4, receiving the first honor, and was inune- 
diately appointed tutor for the following year. There is 
but one other instance in the history of the college of the 
appointment of a student to the position of instructor for 
the year succeeding his graduation. After serving for 
two years as tutor, Mr. Brainerd entered the Theological 
Seminary at Andovcr, Mass., where he graduated in 18G8, 
but was not ordained. He was at once appointed to the 
chair of Rhetoric and English Literature in MidiUebury 
College, left vacant by the resignation of Professor Brain- 
erd Kellogg, who had been called to the Brooklyn Poly- 
technic Institute. He filled this position until 1880, 
when he was made Professor of Physics and Applied 
Mathematics. In 1885, upon the resignation of the Rev. 
Dr. Cyrus Hamlin, he was appointed temporary president 
by the Board of Trustees, and on April 17, 1886, he was 
elected eighth president of the college with which he had 
been so long connected. In addition to his regular college 
duties, President Brainerd has given much study to other 
departments of IMatural Science, and has made several 
important contributions to the Botany and Geology of 
Vermont. In 1887, he was one of the three commis- 
sioners appointed to revise the school laws of the State of 
Vermont. In 1888, he received the degree of LL.D. 
from Ripon College, Wisconsin, and also from the Univer- 
sity of Vermont." He resides in Middlebury, Vt. Mr.

Dec. 22. 187(1, and had a pastorate at So. Dennis, Barn- 
stable Co., Mass., and afterward in Wallingford, Rutland 
Co., Vt., in 1880, where his health failed him, and he was 
placed in the Asylum for the Insane in Brattleboro, Vt. 
From the Necrology of Andover Theological Seminary: 
Mr. Brainerd's attached friend. Rev. Herbert W. Lathe, 
writes of him : " He was a man of deep piety and quick 
sympathies, amiable and affectionate in disposition, and 
of sanguine temperament. A great hater of shams, he 
was particularly earnest to find the truth for himself, and, 
wnen found, to be loyal to it. His winning ways and 
sterling character account for*Viis invariable popularity. 
His sermons were manly and strong rather than senti- 
mental, and he was specially gifted in commending the 
gospel to men. Compelled to retire from the ministry 
after a short service, he longed and expected to return to 
it, and his early death removed from the world a devoted 
Christian, a most companionable and lovable friend, and 
a faithful minister of the Word."

Park Congregational Church in that place. He has taken 
a bold and uncompromising stand against the liquor traf-

license or low license, nor to have his hands tied and his

The Youthful Adventures of Gordon Bennett Brainerd. 
Magazines at the present day have a children's column or pages with 
literature devoted to their interests. Therefore it seems not inappropriate 
that the follovv^ing article written by Gordon Bfnnett's mother of his ad- 
ventures in Florida should be printed. Buck Key is a small island on the 
Gulf Coast of South Florida, between Key West and Tampa. Fishing and 
truck farming are the principal pursuits along the coast. Here too is 
where the gamey tarpon is found at its best. Tourists come here from all 
parts of the world to fish for the silver king. All kinds of tropical fruits 
do well here. Like all settlers in a new country, the beginning was very 
primitive. The first Buck Key home was a palmetto shack, situated on the

bank of a small bayou where the alligator's bellow could be heard, and 
that little pest, the mosquito, was something terrible, and is still a 
great nuisance. But as the country settled and the land cleared and cul- 
tivated, they are not so bad. 

There were a few deer on the island, and Gordon Bennett, then about 
nine years old, was very anxious to kill one and was a very persistent 
hunter though unlucky with his first deer. He went hunting one after- 
noon with a young man and each was to stand on a runway and shoot the 
deer when the dog started it out. Gordon heard the deer coming and 
crouched down behind a bunch of low mangrove trees, and soon the deer 
came in sight. He shot at the doe when the deer whirled in some way, 
and in passing him came so near him as to hit the stock of his gun ; when 
they passed, he shot at the buck and then became frightened, thinking of 
the stories he had heard of wounded bucks attacking hunters, and ran for 
home as fast as his short legs would carry him. On reaching home about 
sunset, his father and the young man went back with him but could not 
find either of the deer. A few days later while coon hunting near where 
he shot the deer, he found the doe dead, shot through the shoulder. These 
islands were at one time the home of the mound builders, and many 
relics have been found.

The following is from the History of Wyoming Co, N. Y. 
" He was among the pioneers of Wyoming Co., N. Y. Ho 
went to Attica, N. Y., in 1811, and located about two 
miles east of the village. In 1820, he built a mill on the 
creek in the town of Alexandria, a short distance from 
Attica. When he commenced building his mill, wheat 
was worth $2.50 per bushel, and when it was finished 
only 3 shillings per bushel. He had resided in Oneida 
Co. seven years previous to settling in Attica. He came 
with an ox team and up to a very recent date the hubs of 
the cart he brought with him from Conn, were preserved. 
He early erected a distillery and purchased cattle which 
he fattened on ' Still slops," " etc.

39. Jerei^iiati^ Brainerd (Ahner\ JosJnm?, Cale¥, Daniel^) of 

East Haddam, Middlesex Co., Conn., then of New Leba- 
non, N. Y. ; in., Dec. 1, 1799, at New Lebanon, Eliza- 
beth Green, b. Nov. 9, 1779, dau. of Daniel and Azubah 
(Guernsey) Green. He was a prominent man in his day, 
a contractor on the Erie canal. The inventor of the 
weighlock, wheelbarrow, stone crusher, and many other 
useful machines. 

He was a personal friend of DeWitt Clinton and many 
other prominent men of his day. He built the bridgre, 
mentioned on page 269 of Brainerd genealogy, compiled 
by Rev. D. D. Field, and named in his honor. In middle 
life he settled in Rome. N. Y. He was famous for his 
great ingenuity and firmness of character. He labored 
with DeWitt Clinton on the construction of that great 
work, the Erie Canal. The work at Little Falls was 
done by him on contract. He built the first " weigh- 
lock " and the first wheelbarrow that was ever made in 
its present form. His inventions were numerous and 
useful, but he never derived any personal benefit from 
them. 

The following is from an obituary notice written at the time 
of his death. " Mr. Jeremiah Brainerd has been favor- 
ably known as an active, ingenious and enterprising man, 
possessed of uncommon powers of mind in mechanism; 
and an inventive genius equalled by few in this or any 
other portion of the country. He was intent upon ori.gi- 
nating and perfecting such implements of machinery as 



^S Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 

he believed would prove a public benefit and his inven- 
tions have for the most part been of great practical 
utility. From a wheelbarrow and an iron paddle gate 
to a gigantic weighlock, they were adopted and have 
ever since been used on that great work, the Erie Canal. 
At this time not a railroad is constructed or canal ex- 
cavated in our land without the aid of implements and 
engines of his creation. Like most men of genius, he 
was too much absorbed in his effort under the guidance 
of his master passion to realize personal remuneration, 
while others more tenacious of gain reaped the benefits 
of his inventions and improvements. Pie was a liberal 
and free hearted man, kind and obliging neighbor, and 
faithful in all his domestic relations. He was prostrated 
many months by paralysis, and when he could no longer 
create or add to the common benefit, went to the grave 
mourned by his numerous relations and friends."

with his father and family from Brainerd's Bridge to 
Rome in the year 1820. He learned the trade of 
carpenter and joiner in the city of Utica, and worked 
at it a short time. In 1830 ho, with Lynden Abel of 
Rome, took a contract on the Chenango Canal. He after- 
ward took a contract on the New York Central Railroad, 
and subsequently on the Erie Railroad. He was very suc- 
cessful as a railroad contractor, and his work gave the 
best of satisfaction. He, in company with the late 
George and Morgan Brainerd, his brothers, built the 
Central Railroad through Rome swamp. It was a diffi- 
cult and laborious job, as the foundation of the road bed 
through the morass was made by driving piles. The 
Brainerd brothers built all the pile work and culverts on 
the Hudson River Railroad between Albany and New 
York. He was at one time superintendent of the Syra- 
cuse and Utica Railroad. In later years he was engaged 
in Canada. He built the Montreal and Le Chine Rail- 
road and the St. Lawrence and Champlain Road. In 
1853 he engaged in car building in Canada, and built 
many of the cars then used in the Dominion. In 1856 
he returned to Rome and became one of the projectors 
and most earnest advocates of the erection of the Rome 
Iron Works. In 1872 he went to St. Albans, Vt, and

superintended the erection of an iron and steel mill in 
that city, after which he returned to Eome. He was a 
member of the Methodist Church many years. By his 
activity, enterprise and business talents he had won a 
competence of this world's goods. He was an affable 
and courteous gentleman and one who had the good will 
and respect of all who knew him. Mr. Alexander Hamil-

Soon after his marriage he started from Harpersfield, N. Y., 
for Harpersfield, Ohio, making the journey on horseback. 
He located his farm, then moved his family, Mch. 4, 1814, 
to that place, he and his wife courageously sharing the 
vicissitudes and deprivations of the early settlers. He 
built a good home that sheltered them in peace and con- 
tentment for sixty years. At the time of his death his 
descendants were eleven children, forty-two grandchildren, 
fifty great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild. 
He was a faithful and consistent member of the Disciple 
Church for fifty years. He was a Free and Accepted 
Mason in Harpersfield, N. Y., and a charter member of 
the Grand River Lodge in Harpersfield, Ohio. In the 
death of this venerable patriarch a noble pioneer has 
passed away. Not a disparaging word blots his memory. 
By his death society is bereft of a noble man, the church 
of a practical Christian worker, and Masonry of a master 
workman, and his family of a faithful husband. He 
was a farmer. He was in the War of 1812. His widow 
received a pension. Mr. David Brainard d. Jan. 30,

tending two courses of lectures. He also attended two 
courses of lectures at the Western Medical College at 
Fairfield, N". Y., and one at Jeiferson College, Philadel- 
phia, where he graduated in 1834. He returned to Whites- 
town, where he was nominally in practice two years with 
his former preceptor, but mostly engaged in the study of 
Latin and French languages and mathematics and pro- 
fessional reading. He gave his first course of lectures 
in 183f), on Anatomy and Physiology, in the Oneida In- 
stitute. In August, 1836, he removed to Chicago, 111., 
where he remained until Oct., 1S39, when he left for 
Paris for a more extended study in his profession. He 
returned in April, 1841, and resumed his practice, and 
in the same year was appointed Professor of Anatomy 
in the University in St. Louis, where he gave another 
course of lectures in 1852 and '53. He was a cor- 
responding member of the Society of Surgery in Paris 
and of the Medical Society of the Canton of Geneva, 
Switzerland. He received the prize at the Medical So- 
ciety in St. Louis in May, 1854. 

In 1857, he was chosen President and Professor of Surgery 
in the Medical College in Chicago, and Surgeon of the 
United States Marine Hospital under Presidents Pierce 
and Buchanan. He was the founder of Rush Medical 
College, Chicago, and occupied its chair of Surgery from

Association prize essay for 1854, and had many articles 
in The Chicago Medical Journal. At the time of his 
death he had been for several years engaged on an ex- 
tensive Surgical Work which remains unfinished. He 
was one of the most prominent surgeons of the North- 
west. His reputation rests largely on his advocacy of 
subcutaneous perforation for the cure of false join- 
ture and the treatment of poisoned wounds by means 
of alterative injections. Dr. Daniel Brainerd d. Oct.

1836, in Chatham, Conn., dan. of Sylvester and Sarah 
Tracy (Worthington) Goff of East Haddam, Conn. He 
entered business life at the age of 14 years, and was chiefly 
employed in and about Hartford until 1858, when he ac- 
cepted a position with Pratt Oakley & Co., New York. 
This firni failed in 1861, and he returned to Moodus, 
where he kept a general store until 1872. In that year 
he removed to Binghamton, N. Y., where he was book- 
keeper for Lester Bros. & Co., and others, and also in the 
grocery business. In the fall of 1880 he returned to Hart- 
ford, and was bookkeeper for his old employers, T. Sisson 
& Co. (formerly Lee & Butler), from 1881 to 1893, when 
he retired from active business. He has been a member 
of a Congregational Church since 1856. His residence is 
Hartford, Qonn. 

A GOLDEN WEDDING. 

On May 13, 1856, William R. Brainard and Mary E. Goff were united 
in marriage, at the house of her father, Sylvester Goff, in East Haddam, 
by the Rev. Nelson Goodrich. The ceremony was witnessed only by the 
nearest relatives of the bride and groom. The officiating minister died 
some years since, and of those who were present at the wedding half a 
century ago only the two sisters of the bride, Mrs. Sarah A. Emmons, and 
Mrs. Cynthia L. Gates, are now living. After the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. 
Brainard proceeded at once to Hartford, where they began housekeeping. 
After a few years they removed to New York, and afterward to other 
places, but in 1880 they returned to Hartford, where they have since lived. 
So more than half of the fifty years of their married life has been spent 
in Hartford. 

On May 14, 1906, — the true date falling on the day before, which was 
Sunday, they celebrated their golden wedding by an informal reception 
afternoon and evening, at their home on Kenyon street, in Hartford. 
Relatives, friends, and neighbors from far and near called to offer their 
congratulations and best wishes to the couple, who had reached their 
golden jubilee, and the occasion was one of much pleasure and delight to 
all those present. The only cause of regret was that the two sisters of 
Mrs. Brainard, the only surviving witnesses of the ceremony of fifty years 
before, were prevented from coming. Refreshments and music were en- 
joyed. Mr. and Mrs. Brainard received many gifts fitting the occasion. 
Their health is good, and thoy bid fair to celebrate many more returns of 
their marriage date. Mr. William Royal Brainard d. .

241. Wesley'' Braineiid {Alexander Hamilton^, Jeremiah}, Ah-

N. Y.; m., Nov. 17, 1858, in Chicago, 111., Amelia Maria 
Gage, b. June 23, 1834, in Chicago, 111., dan. of Eli A. 
and Mary Cornelia ( Judson) Gage. When the war broke 
out he was residing in Rome, N. Y., and was Captain of a 
militia company. 
After the first battle of Bull Run he recruited a company 
from various sections of the state, and with them was 
mustered into the United States service with the 50th 
Regt., N. Y. Volunteer Engineers, and was commissioned 
Captain of Co. C in Aug., 1861. He passed through the 
Peninsula Campaign with his company and regiment, 
taking part in all the battles of that campaign. At Fred- 
ericksburg, Va., he was in command of the detachment of 
three companies of engineers who were ordered to lay the 
pontoon bridges across the Rappahannock, in front of the 
city and near the " Lacy House," known as the " upper 
bridge." The bridge was about half done when the 
enemy opened upon them. This was the first or Lacy 
House bridge on which Gen. Burnside chiefly relied for 
the crossing of the army. His command suffered very 
severely, and he was there wounded in the elbow of his 
left arm, but not until they had been three times driven 
off. On the third attempt when he went on the bridge 
with ten men every man was either killed or wounded be- 
fore he was struck. At the time he was out on the end 
of the bridge he was a target for the two regiments of 
Mississippi sharpshooters, who could not be silenced by 
all the artillery of the army of the Potomac, which was 
posted on the rising ground back of. them. After he was 
taken to the rear some infantry regiments were taken over 
in the pontoon boats by the men of our regiment and the 
position carried. As all this occurred very early on the 
morning of the 11th of December no " army corre- 
spondents " were about, and very little has been said of the 
affair in the histories. After this battle he was promoted 
to Major of the regiment, his commission dating Dec. 29, 
1862. He participated in all the battles fought by the 
army of the Potomac, was " Brevetted " Lieutenant- 
Colonel in 1864 for " gallant and meritorious services in

the present campaign before Richmond." During the 
campaign of 1864 he was assigned with his battalion of 
engineers to the second corps, and through the Wilderness, 
Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, etc., received his orders direct 
from Gen'i Hancock. He then performed the duties of his 
engineer officer in charge of practical engineer duties. 
On their arrival at Petersburgh he was again returned 
with his command to his regiment. In Dec, 1864, he 
was promoted to Colonel of the 15th New York Engineers, 
his commission dating Dec. 13, 1864. With this regiment 
he served (a portion of the time in command of the de- 
fenses of City Point, Gen. Grant's headquarters,) until 
the close of the war, and was mustered out of the service 
at Elmira, N. Y., June 30, 1865. This in brief is his 
military history. He was many years engaged in the lum- 
ber business, in his earlier life, in Chicago, 111. He later 
engaged in mining in Colorado and stock raising in 
Nebraska. He spends his winters in Denver, Col. 
He is brother-in-law of Lyman J. Gage, former Secretary 
of the Treasury. Mr. Wesley Brainerd d. .

THE SONG OF BETHLEHEM. 

Once, as told in sacred story, 

Of the ancient, famous days. 
Verdant hillsides, now historic. 

Echoed songs of angel praise; 
Carols that proclaimed the coming, 

From the Home of God above. 
Of the meek, yet mighty Jesus, 

Son and seal of Heaven's love. 

And the famous Angel chorus. 

Heaven's sacred song sublime, 
Sweetly blending with the music. 

Floating down the stream of time; 
Gently whispered to the ages. 

As they pass in silence by, 
Of its pledge of peace eternal. 

In the Home beyond the sky. 

It has charmed the haughty monarch. 

Sitting on the throne of power. 
Taught him that his cherished glory, 

Perished like a fading flower; 
Led him to devote his sceptre. 

Honor, fame, ambition, might. 
To the cause of peace and mercy. 

E'en of Heaven's sacred right. 

It has entered humble dwelling. 

Wretched homes of want and care, 
Pointing wounded, drooping spirits. 

To a promised Eden fair; 
It has made the mystic river. 

Flowing past the golden strand 
Of the promised bright hereafter, 

Like the dry and verdant land. 

It has whispered to affliction. 

In my Father's House above, 
Countless homes, of life immortal, 

Wait the ransomed heirs of love; 



154 Brainerd-Brainard Genealogy. 



Deatli is only Heaven's message, 
Kindly calling them away 

From the chilling gloom of shadow, 
To the light of endless day. 

Thus that ancient, famous carol, 

Sung of Angels, long ago, 
Comes to cheer the heavy laden. 

And the fainting child of woe; 
Thus, till mystic, changeless purpose, 

Wills that Time shall be no more. 
Shall the ancient, angel chorus. 

Point us to the golden shore.

ONE OF THESE DAYS. 

One of these days, though the shadows have gathered 

Over the pathway and drearily fall, 
Sunlight of blessing each cloud shall illumine. 

And beauty and gladness shall smile over all; 
One of those days though thy spirit in silence, 

Thrilleth with anguish o'er sorrows untold. 
Peace from the merciful Author of solace, 

Gently thy grief-burdened heart shall enfold. 

One of these days, though the hope thou hast cherished, 

Lieth ruinous waste at thy feet, 
Prospects unfailing, of sweeter fruition. 

Swiftly thy vision enraptured shall greet; 
One of these days, though thy trials and crosses. 

Painful and heavy, mysterious be. 
Patient endurance and loyal submission, 

Sanctified glory will purchase for thee. 

One of these days on the bright hills of glory. 

Home in the City of jasper and gold. 
Visions of beauty, enchanting, eternal, 

Wondrous, seraphic, thine eyes shall behold; 
One of these days with the sainted immortal, 

Eobed in the garments the glorified wear, 
Brilliant with lustre of ravishing splendor, 

Thou shalt rejoice, with the shining ones there. 



THE MOUND IN THE CHURCHYARD. 

There is a dear little mound in the churchyard, 
A moss-circled treasure-place rare, 

That in summer is planted with flowers. 
And tended with scrupulous care. 

The place where our own little cherub. 

In infantile innocence blest. 
Asleep in her tiny white casket, 

Is silently taking her rest. 

Bright visions of marvelous beauty. 
Sweet music in rapturous strains, 

And jewels of wonderful promise. 
That tiny white casket contains. 

And so in the springtime and summer, 

The rose and the violet fair. 
The tulip and delicate lily. 

Are planted with reverence there.

From the Standard, Chicago, 111. 

" She was converted in Oberlin, Ohio, when but seven years 
of age, and united with the church when thirteen years of 
age, at Jackson, Mich. Since her marriage she has been 
one of the most efficient workers in the church at Red Oalc. 
Hers was a beautiful life; and all can truly say of her : 

'None knew thoe but to love thee; 
None named thee but to praise.' " 



Seventh Generation. 157 

The following was embodied in a resolutio:i, adopted by 
the ladies of the Red Oak Church : 

" She loved the Master and was always seeking ways in 
which to serve Him. In the mission circle she was an 
active member, doing whatever she could to promote its 
best interests, taking any part in its work cheerfully, 
gladly, trustingly; deeming it a privilege to help spread 
the best news of salvation. 

" In all other departments of church work she was always 
ready, always efficient. In the Aid Society she was a 
valued helper. In the devotional meetings her sweet voice 
was often heard in prayer or testimony. To her Sunday 
School class of 13 young girls she was particularly de- 
voted; and many times have we heard her plead at the 
throne of grace for their conversion. But she has gone 
to her reward, and in the courts of the King it will be her 
joy to welcome them, for some of them have given their 
hearts to the Saviour, and we hope and trust the others- 
will soon follow. It can be truly said of her ' she hath 
done what she could.' "

Treasure, and the Effusion of Blood. 

That we cordially sympathize with our Sister Colony the 
Massachusetts Bay, and in particular with the Town of 
Boston now struggling in the Front of Oppression. 

That we are free and willing to join with the neighboring 
Towns and Colonies in any righteous Way and Method,

Good of the American System. 

The Kesolves of the Honorable House of Representatives of

made a profession of religion at the age of sixteen and up 
to the time of her death lived the life of a devoted 
Christian.

and other foreign ports. His parents, especially his 
mother, opposed his following a seafaring life, and tried 
to persuade him to settle on the old homestead farm and 
care for his parents in their declining years. This did 
not meet with favor by the adventurous Joseph, preferring 
to strike out by himself and become master of his own 
fortune. In the spring of 1809 he fell in with the tide of 
emigration from Connecticut to the Black Kiver country 
in northern New York, took up a tract of heavy timber 
land and settled in the primeval forest of Leyden, Lewis 
Co., N. Y., and went to work with a will to provide him-

only flowed from the eyes of numerous relatives, but also 
from the church of which the deceased was a member. She 
was distinguished for her eminent piety, her zeal and on- 
gagedness in the cause of Christ. 

" During her Christian course, she appeared to the view of 
every pious mind, to be following the footsteps of Him wlio 
went about doing good ; she manifested at all times great 
concern for the souls of her fellow men, and felt peculiarly 
interested in the upbuilding of Zion, especially in heathen 
lands; she felt determined to quit the dear scenes of her 
childhood and the land of her nativity, the coming spring, 
for the sake of instructing the poor and benighted heathen; 
but that God whose way is in the sea, and whose footsteps 
are not known, saw fit to cut her down, ere she had reached 
the meridian of her days. During her sickness, her Covenant 
God did not forsake her; she manifested humble resignation 
to his holy will. Though much distressed with pain she 
endured as seeing Him who is invisible. The last words 
she uttered were, ' Sweet Jesus I am going to thee,' and

one cut dowii in the morning of life, in the midst of useful- 
ness, and consigned to the silent tomb. May this be a warn- 
ing to youth. May they earnestly listen to the voice that 
now speaks from her grave. ' Be ye also ready, for in such 
an hour as ye think not of, the son of man cometh,' "

S, 1811, to the Connecticut Western Eeserve in Ohio and 
settled in the township of Boardman. It was then an un- 
broken forest. The deer, black bear, and all kinds of 
wild game abounded in that part of Ohio at that time, 
now well watered and cultivated, with good farmhouses 
and good roads and many villages. They were twenty- 
three days in going from Saratoga Springs, N. Y., to 
Ohio, traveling with a wagon. He was a farmer. He 
and his brother, Linus, went to Boardman, Ohio, took 
up land, cultivated it, and prepared a home for their 
father's family. He was killed while aiding his brother, 
George, in malking repairs on the roof of his old log barn. 
Having examined the timbers and considering them sound 
he was preparing to place the shingles when one of the 
logs supporting the roof timbers broke, and one end of the 
lower roof logs, upon which he was standing, fell, and in 
descending he slipped between them and was crushed. 
He was a soldier in the War of 1812, and being thoroughly 
acquainted with the whole country around Lake Erie, was 
made chief of scouts, and planned and carried through the 
greater number of scouting expeditions connected with 
the war, on the southern coast of Lake Erie and through- 
out the northern part of Ohio, until disabled by the rolling 
upon him of a log during the building of a camp. 
Though farming was his usual business, his winters were 
spent in teaching school, having taught thirty-two winters 
in succession. He located in Johnstown, Ohio. Mr. 
Solomon Brainerd d. July 1, 1825, in Boardman, Ohio, 
ae. 43 yrs., 6 mos. Mrs. Charity (Jaqua) Brainerd d. 

The following sketch, written by a descendant, Mrs. Roxy 
Ann (Brainerd) Taylor, will no dou^t prove very in- 
teresting to all who may read it, as showing the way the 
early pioneers traveled westward to make themselves a 
home in the wilderness, and in contrast to the present 
mode of rapid transit across the continent. The sketch 
refers to the manner Simon Jaqua took his family to 
the then frontier settlement in Ohio. 

" They came as most people traveled in those days, with their 
goods in a large covered wagon, drawn by oxen, with a 
place in front for the children to ride, who were not big 
enough to walk. Their cow was tied to the back of the 
wagon and they did their cooking night and morning 
They made butter by hanging a small wooden keg, filled 
with the morning's milk, in the wagon, and every night 
there would be butter enough for their supper and break- 
fast. The evening's milk would do for the children's 
supper and breakfast. 

" Grandmother had her own horse and saddle and carried 
her baby in her arms. My mother and her eldest brother 
walked most of the way to Pittsburg. The brother being

sick, the journey was delayed several weeks, when they 
left Pittsburg for Johnstown, the place of their destina- 
tion. In due time they arrived safely, encamped in the 
woods, until they selected a building site, cut down the 
trees, cleared the ground, built a log house, and moved in 
their goods. They were then at home. 
" In the meantime Mrs. Bradley came to see them. She said, 
' Mrs. Jaqua, I heard there was another woman in town, 
and I have come two miles through the vvoods just to see 
her, for I have not seen the face of a woman, except 
squaws, for six months. It does my heart good to see a 
white woman again.' "

sister. She united with the Methodist Episcopal Church 
and consecrated herself to the service of her God, in whose 
fellowship she continued a consistent Christian until the 
time of her death. The sweet fragrance of her pure and 
saintly life will long be felt and cherished by her friends.

Wells, b. June 4, 1816, dau. of John F. and Mary (Mc- 
Kenzie) (Mason) Wells of Ravenna, Ohio. Mary Mc- 
Kenzie married first Jared Mason. He served an ap- 
prenticeship at harness making and carriage trimming. 
In the spring of 1834 he went to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, 
where he followed his trade for about five years. In 1839 
he removed to Randolph, and in 1843 he was elected jus- 
tice of the peace, and at the October election, 1845, he 
was elected county treasurer. In the spring of 1846 he 
removed to Ravenna, where he has since resided. In 
1849 he entered into partnership with his brother-in-law, 
Samuel Mason, under the firm name of Mason & Brain- 
erd, engaged in hardware, stove and tinning business, 



Sixth Generation. 123 

which partnership continued until Mr. Mason's death in 
August, 1852. lu 1853 he was appointed cashier of the 
Franklin Bank of Portage County, was acting treasurer in 
1854, and in 1855 he was elected treasurer of the Atlantic 
& Great Western Eailroad Company, and re-elected from 
year to year until 1864, when he resigned, but subsequently 
served in the same position one year more. On the 12th 
of July, 1859, he was appointed acting secretary of this 
Eailway Company, in which position he served three years. 
In December, 1864, he w^as appointed director of the 
company, and at the next annual meeting, in July, he 
was elected member of the Railway Board of Directors, 
which position, and that of inspector of accounts, he held 
several years. He was also director, treasurer and finan- 
cial officer of the Silver Creek Mining & Railway Company 
in Wayne and Medina Counties seven years, from 1856 
to 1863. For many years he was director of the Portage 
County branch of the State Bank of Ohio, and after the 
death of Mr. Seymour, in Nov., 1863, he was elected its 
President. After the organization of the First National 
Bank of Ravenna, he was for several years one of its 
directors. He was treasurer of the Farmers' Insurance 
Company of Portage County during all the years of its 
business transaction. For seven years he was treasurer 
and three years President of the Portage County Agricul- 
tural Society, and much of its success and prosperity is 
due to his efficient action and untiring efforts in its be- 
half. For the past six years he has been director and 
historian of the Portage and Summit Counties Pioneer 
Association. In 1870 he entered into partnership with 
his son, Charles W. Brainerd, under the firm name 
of E. P. Brainerd' & Son, and engaged in a gen- 
eral drug business, which continued until the spring 
of 1882. He was a direct descendant of Revolu- 
tionary stock, and inherited the spirit of '76 and 
great devotion to the stars and stripes. In politics he 
began an old-line Whig, voted the Free Soil ticket, and 
has been identified with the Republican party since its 
organization, and was for many years chairman of the 
County Central Committee. He has ever been a warm 
friend of education. For many years before the Union 
School system was adopted, he held the position of 
Director of Common Schools, and later for some years he 
was President of the Board of Education of Ravenna. 
From the early period at which the subject of the sketch 
became identified with the interests of Portage County, 
he has occupied a conspicuous position in business affairs, 
in educational interests, public improvements, and all 
that pertains to the progress and advancement of his town 
and county. The record of his life will live in the mem- 
ory of those whose rugged ways he smoothed and softened, 
after he has passed away.

Margaret Wells was educated at the Ravenna Academy and 
her early life was devoted to teaching. In her vocation 
she was earnest, thorough, and successful, obtaining the 
love, respect and good will of her pupils. She had no 
sympathy with those who neutralize their energies in 
sentimentalism. Her life motto was to " be up and doing 
witli a heart for any fate." Labor Avas never regarded a 
burden, abstinence from the indulgences of life no hard- 
ship, time a talent to be always _ improved, industry a 
cardinal virtue and laziness the worst form of original 
sin. ^''aturally sympathetic, she was easily aroused to 
works of benevolence and humanity, and in her friend- 
ships, true, trusting and practical. Her domestic life 
approached a model, and in that sphere no duty was for a 
moment left undone.

concluding her education at Oberlin, Ohio, in 1872, she 
went to GoldsborOj N. Carolina and engaged in teaching 
under the auspices of the Friend's Association of Phila, 
Pa., and remained there over one year. She returned to 
Washington, D. C, and accepted a clerkship in the Capitol

field for exercising her self-sacrificing devotion for the best 
good of suffering humanity.

(2), July 23, 1844, Elizabeth R. Clark, b. June 2, 1822, 
in Concord, Ohio, dau. of Billings and Caroline (Brig-

in the fall of 1836. He served an apprenticeship at sad- 
dle and harness making. In 1838 ho settled in Randolph, 
Ohio, which has since been his home. 
Mrs. Elizabeth R, Brainerd was intellectually a woman of 
deep thought and discerning judgment. She loved books, 
and was, through all her life, a great reader; naturally 
quiet, retiring and undemonstrative, she made no display, 
and her intellectual attainments were most appreciated 
by those who came very near and knew her best. Re- 
ligiously she was an earnest, devoted follower of Christ. 
She was strongly attached to the Metliodist Church, of 
which she was a member; its temporal, as well as its 
spiritual burdens, were ever upon hey, and through all 
her life she was an active, faithful worker in its cause. 
Her Christian character was without spot or blemish ; she 
professed but little, but she lived much; her heart was 
strong in all Christian virtues and only out of its abun- 
dance did her lips speak ; her daily life was the living 
epistle of her faith. For many years she was a faithful, 
earnest teacher in the Sabbath School. She went to her 
work before her class fresh from communion with her 
God, and the impress of her pure, inspiring thought and 
Christian teaching helped to mould the character and 
shape the life of many a fair young girl, who in the years 
to come will call her memory blessed. The harvest of 
her sowing, eternity alone can measure. Socially, as a 
neighbor and friend, she was one to lean upon, her words 
were few, but they were not uncertain ; her deeds of kind- 
ness were many. By the bedside of the sick, in the hour

of sorrow, with ouiet strength, she bore the burdens of 
others. 

But it was in the home, in the family that she filled her 
grandest measure. She was preeminently a " Home 
Mother.'^ The care of ea'^h one of her household was her 
care; her busy fingers were never weary with works of 
love. Beautifully, roundly, did she fill the picture Solo- 
mon paints of the good wife and mother. As a wife, she 
was constant, faithful and true as tempered steel. As 
a mother, kind, indulgent, yet inspiring, with the ten- 
derest love she was ever ready to listen to childhood's 
sorrow and dry a childish tear; with quick perceptions, 
she was ever watchful to impress the growing mind with 
pure thoughts and noble aspirations, and in the fruition 
of maturer years, she shared each joy and sorrow. She 

~ wove a cord of love between herself and her family that 
had in it no uncertain strand, but became firmer and 
stronger as years went by. Her life work was well done, 
and its close, through weary weeks of physical pain and 
suffering, serene, unclouded and strong in Christian tri- 
umph. She taught us how to live, she has shown us how 
to die. A broken home and sorrowing hearts are left; 
but, in the fullness of time, at tlic end of the path her 
feet have trod, earth's sorrows and mysteries will be un- 
folded, and over death, triumphant and changeless, will 
bloom the years of never-ending life. Mrs. Elizabeth E.
