PREFACE. 



Among those who have taken an active part in collect- 
ing the records of the descendants of Capt. Anthony 
Collamer printed in this book may be mentioned : 

Hon. Horace Collamore of North Pembroke, Massa- 
chusetts, who settled the estate of his father (Capt. 
Enoch Collamore of Oilman Plain, Scituate, Mass.) in 
1824, and became the custodian of many old papers be- 
longing: to his ancestors ; 

Mrs. Adeline Collamore Briggs of Boston, Massachu- 
setts, who spent much time and money in travel visiting 
kindred in New England, gathering the records of fami- 
lies descended from John Collamore, who settled for the 
most part in Massachusetts. Miss Marion Davis Colla- 
more collected valuable data in England ; 

Miss Mina A. Woodcock of Cushing, Maine, who col- 
lected the family links of the descendants of Isaac 
Collamore, most of whom settled in that State ; 

Miss Maria Collamore of Warren, Rhode Island, who 
collected information regarding the descendants of Peleg 
Collamore, who settled in that State ; 

Mrs. Harriet A. Collamer of Malta, N. Y., and other 
cousins in that vicinity, who furnished family records of 
descendants of Anthony Collamer, Jr., who settled in 
New York State ;

4 PREFACE. 

Newton Leon Collamer of Washington, D. C, who 
organized the " Collamore Union ", deserves credit for 
creating an interest in the genealogy among all the 
branches of the family, and collecting the records from 
the Vermont branch, as well as from the others for a long 
term of years. 

Credit for the final work of gathering the material and 
having it printed should be given to Mrs. Sarah Hatch 
(Collamore) Hitchcock of Toledo, Ohio, Mrs. Ellen 
Collamore Bolles of Toledo, Ohio, and to Mr. Archie 
Collamore Burnett of Anburndale, Massachusetts. 

Charles Hatch, 

Quincy, Massachusetts, 

January 15, 1914.* 



*It was through the untiring efforts of Mr. Hatch that the greater 
part of the material for this genealogy was arranged for publica- 
tion. Since the above was written, his useful and active life 
closed, April 4th, 1915; and his often expressed wish "to see this 
Record in book form", was frustrated. The furtherance of his 
earnest desire has been the loving task of his cousin, Miss Adeline 
Collamore Young. 



INTRODUCTION. 



Tradition has brought down to us the story that the 
forbears of the Collamores once lived in the north of 
France, and crossed over into England from Normandy 
about the year 1066, with William the Conqueror. About 
one hundred years later a branch of the family is said to 
have entered with Strongbow into Ireland. The name is 
associated with Coulommier, a town in France, and sig- 
nifies " a brave man " or " the great wood ". Kollmeyer 
is the manner of spelling the name in Germany. Branches 
of the family were numerous in the counties of Devon- 
shire, Warwickshire, and Kent, until near the close of 
the 17th century, but there are now few of the name in 
England. The early New England Colonial Records 
show that Isaac Cullimore, shipwright, settled in Boston, 
and was made a freeman in 1643. He owned considera- 
ble real estate, and was twice married, but left no pos- 
terity ; and appears to have been no near relative of the 
Collamores in Scituate, Mass. James Collamore is men- 
tioned as an early inhabitant of Salem, Mass., but left no 
descendants in the vicinity. The Collamores of Braun- 
ton, Devonshire County, England, were a highly respected 
family, and Sir Thomas Collamore was Vicar of the 
Church at that place as early as the year 1494. The 
Collamores of Luscott, in Braunton, recorded a pedigree 
of eight generations in the Visitation of 1620. Sir John 
Collamore of Luscott dying in 1605 without an heir, 
devised his property to his brothers and sisters and to

their children. In his will he mentioned John, Philip, 
Thomas and Mary, the children of his deceased brother, 
Peter, who were then living. One of these sons v/as 
probably the ancestor of Peter Collamore and of his 
nephew, Capt. Anthony Collamore, from whom the Col- 
lamores and Collamers and Collemers of Massachusetts, 
Maine, Rhode Island, Vermont and New York branches 
of the family have sprung. 

The Collamores of Little Rock, Arkansas, are descended 
from Thomas of Wexford, Ireland, born in 1793, who 
married his fourth cousin, Catherine CuUimore, in 1816.

MRS ADELINE COLLAMORE BRIGGS 



ENGLISH RECORD. 



In the Visitation of Devonshire, England, published 

by Vivian, it is recorded that Sir John Collamore of Las- 

cotte, who died in Braunton in the year 1605, mentioned 

in his will, John, Thomas, Phillip and Mary, the children 

of his brother Peter, who had deceased. The family of 

Peter Collamore resided at Northam, across the bay from 

Braunton, in the country described by Charles Kingsley 

in his novel entitled " Westward Ho." The Vital Records 

in the church at Northam show that Thomas, the eldest 

son of Peter Collamore, was born Sept. 20, 1570, and 

married Agnes Adams, Jan. 11, 1608. Their children 

were : John, born Nov., 1608 ; Mark, born Feb., 1610 ; 

Peter, born Dec, 1613 ; Jone, born Oct., 1616. Peter, 

the third son, was without a doubt the Scituate emigrant 

of 1639, John, the eldest son, being the father of Capt. 

Anthony Collamore of Scituate. The estate of Peter 

Collamore of Northam was administered by his wife 

Edith, and by AVilliam Blackmore ; and the Probate 

Eecords of Exeter show the division of property among 

the children, John, Thomas, Phillip and Mary. 



The Pioneer of the Family in the United States. 

Peter Collamore, the first settler in the Colony of 
Plymouth of that name, came from Northam, Devonshire 
County, England. In what year and upon what vessel 
he came the records fail to state. The earliest mention

of him found, is in the year 1639, when for services ren- 
dered (probably military) he was awarded 25 acres of 
land at Namassacusett. This land, which appears to have 
been west of Massachusetts Bay Path, near "Luddens 
Ford " at North River, within the limits of what is now 
the town of Pembroke, was tranferred by him to Ralph 
Chapman, as shown by the following extract from Plym- 
outh Colony Deed Records, Vol. XII, Page 47 : " The 
Viiz of Oct. 1639. Memorand that Peter Collymer for 
& in consideration of the sume of six pounds ster. to be 
payd him the last day of Aprill next by Ralph Chapman 
of Dux burrow, hath freely & absolutely bargained & 
sold unto the said Ralph Chapman all those his xxv acres 
of land & due unto him the said Peter for his services, 
and all his Right title & interest of and into the same 
with all & singuler th apprtenc & there unto belonging. 
To have & to hold the said xxv acres of land & all & 
singuler The apprtenc & thereunto belonging unto the 
said Ralph Chapman his heirs & assigns forever." A 
Court of Assistants held at Plymouth Nov. 2, 1640, be- 
fore Wm. Bradford, Thomas Prence, Miles Standish and 
others, granted to Peter Collymer xxv acres of land at 
Namassacusett, " next after the lands there sfranted are 
layed forth, without any vacancy." He first settled on 
Wills Island in New Harbour Marsh, southeast of Cole- 
man's Hill in Scituate, where he owned a house in com- 
mon with John Harker, a man that had served in the 
Pequot war in 1637, as shown by the record. His interest 
in this house he sold to Wm. Wills, Oct. 25, 1642. In 
1643 he was on the list of those liable to bear arms in 
Scituate. Jan. 15, 1644, he took the " Oath of Fidele- 
tie." In 1647 he was chosen constable for the town of 
Marshfield, presented to the Court and sworn. In 1650 
and other years he was surveyor of " Hieways " in Scitu-

ate, and was a constable for the town in 1651. Situated 
a few rods westerly from his first habitation on Wills 
Island was Brooke Hall Farm on Belle House Neck, 
owned by Mr. Samuel Fuller. This farm was purchased 
in 1650 by Peter CoUamore and was known for many 
years thereafter as " Collamore Place." It was located 
on the south side of the First Herring Brook, about one- 
half mile below the Stockbridge Mill, which was built in 
the year 1 640, and stands as an ancient landmark at the 
present day. The poet Samuel Woodworth, in his song 
of the " Old Oaken Bucket ", refers to this locality 
when he speaks of 

** The wide-spreading pond and the mill which stood by it, 
The bridge, and the rock where the cataract fell."

" Collamore Place " was near the banks of North River, 
where more than 1000 vessels were launched in early 
days by the inhabitants of the neighborhood. The Col- 
lamores were some of them shipwrights and others were 
part owners in some of the vessels. Peter Collamore 
owned the sloop " Mayflower," in which he coasted be- 
tween Scituate and Boston. The following is from the 
Suffolk County Records for the year 1650 : '* cert, that

Scituate 20th September, 1653. 
Kind and Loving Brother 

My kind love and due respects with my wifes remem- 
bered to you with our harty prayers to God for your 
helth and prosperity and my great love and affections 
towards you will not suffer me to omite any opportunity 
of wrighting to you tho it be long since I have received 
any from you. The last was three years since Wherein 
I heard of the death of my deare sister which loss I 
sadly lament and desire that we may be the more frequent 
in our corespondancy of writing one to another by reason 
that God hath taken so deare a friend from us in whoos 
o-ood society we might have had much comfort if God had 
sene us worthy to have enjoyed so great a blessing. I 
dare not laye you of want of love in that I have had no 
answer to my two last letters because I know not where 
the fault may be but I earnistly Intreat you to let me 
heare from you by all convenient opertunityes and I 
shall not faile to answer if God give me life, for why 
shall we be as dead one to another while wee are yet 
alive. My Earnest request to you is that you would send 
me one of your sonns for since God hath denied us that 
blessing of our owne of a posterity to succeed us in our 
o-eneration I know none that more deserve than some of 
yours who may most fitly serve to beare up our name in 
New England where God hath cast my lot and blessed

be his name hath made it good for me and I question not 
but if you think good to send me one of yours which I 
may keepe as me owne but hee shall if God give him life 
Injoy as large a portion both of spirituall and teraporall 
blessings as any of the rest of your children. Brother 
lett me desire you to send one over to me the next yeare 
by some trusty messenger and if his passage bee not payd 
I shall Joyfully att his arrivall discharge it to the full 
with content to the trusty messenger, thus with my love 
and my wifes owne more presented to you your good wife 
and children I commit you to God and Right. 

Your affectionate 

loving Brother 

Peeter Collemer. 

According to a family tradition, his nephew, William 
Blackmore, came first to Scituate, but Peter Collamore 
insisted on a relative bearing the name of Collamore being 
ent to him and Anthony Collamore came later in the 
year 1665. In the Scituate fight of 1676, William Black- 
more was killed by the Indians and his house was burned. 
His children were mentioned in the will of his uncle 
Peter in Items preceding the names of the children of 
Capt. Anthony Collamore, his cousin. 



(Abstract from Plymouth Judicial Acts, Oct. 5th, 1663.) 
"James Doughtey complained against Peter Collymore, 
in an action of slander and defamation, to the damage of 
an hundred pounds, for reporting that Thomas Ingham 
tould him the wife of the said James Doughtey did ad- 
vise, or put the said Tho Ingham in a way, hoe hee might 
steale yearne, and make his cloth hold waight, and that 
by her owne experience, having wool of other psons to 



16 GENEALOGY OF THE 

spin, and laying it on a dampe flore, it would hold waight 
and a pritty matter spare." 

The jury find for the plaintiffe five pounds damage and 
the cost of the suite. Judgment was granted, according 
to the verdict. 



In 1672, Peter CoUamore and others acquired land at 
Oilman Plain in West Scituate by an award of Court at 
Plymouth, and on May 29, 1675, he came into his share 
of land at Saconet, R. L, through the division of 50 acre 
lots, Mary, the wife of Peter Colkmore, survived her 
husband about one year, as shown by an inventory of her 
belongings dated Aug. 12, 1685, preserved among the 
family papers.

Belle House Neck.

26 GENEALOGY OP THE 



Death op Capt. Anthony Collamore. 

On the rocks near the Scituate shore, since known as 
Collamore's Ledge, the Captain lost his life by shipwreck 
in a snow storm in 1693. His body was recovered sev- 
eral days afterwards, and he was buried under arms in the 
First Parish Cemetery at Scituate Harbor. 

The stone marking his grave is located about two rods 
northeasterly from the Monument to the Men of Kent, on 
the south side of Meeting-House Lane. The estate of 
Capt. Anthony Collamore (he left no will) was adminis- 
tered by Sarah, his widow, and Peter, his only surviving 
son. The children mentioned in the division of the es- 
tate were Mary, the wife of Robert Stetson, and her sis- 
ters, Sarah, Martha, and Elizabeth. Benjamin H. Harri- 
son, President of the United States, was a descendant of 
Elizabeth Collamore and her second husband, Timothy 
Symmes. 

The Rev. Deodat Lawson, minister of the Second Par- 
ish, dedicated the following poem to the memory of Capt. 
Anthony Collamore. 



DESCENDANTS OF ANTHONY COLLAMER. 27 

THRENODIA. 

The Great Jehovah is the Lord and King, 

Both in the Heavens and on the Earth and Sea ; 

What things Pleas Him in each to pass doth bring, 
Nor can He in His Will resisted be. 

He in his fist retains the Boistrous Winds ; 

And Raging Waters in a Garment binds. 

Tis but to Loose His Little Finger then, 

And the most Furious blasts do Issue thence ; 

Enough to terrify the stoutest Men, 
Nor can they find against it a Defence. 

Tis but to Slack the binding of the Seas, 

And they will soon accomplish what He pleas. 

December last upon the Sixteenth day, 

Within the Harbour lay at Scituate ; 
Some Loaden Boats to Boston bound away, 

Which for Fair Wind and Weather there did wait, 
Among the rest was Captain Collaraore, 
Whose sad disaster, we must now deplore. 

Some boats with Sailes Expanded led the way, 
Out of the Harbour ; and did fairly glide ; 

Thus one by one stood out into the Bay, 

With Wind at East North East and Flowing Tide, 

The Captain in the Race did Hoist up Saile, 

And hasted after with a steady Gale. 

He did his best with speed to quit the Shore, 
And seemed in his way to Prosper well ; 

He luffs up to the Wind and Northward bore. 
For near an Hour as Spectators tell ; 

That so he might be gaining of the Wind, 

And to his Port the fairer Passage find. 

But Dangers great did quickly hitn Surprize, 
The Clouds did gather and obscure the Sun ; 

Winds Whistled, Snow came thick and sea did rise ; 
And he was at a loss which way to run ; 

As did appear to some that were before, 

Who quickly after, saw the Boat no more. 



28 GENEALOGY OF THE 

With him Five Persons more Embarqued were, 
Two Men, one Woman, and two Ladds beside ; 

Nor did since that alive on Shore appear ; 
But were all Drowned in the Ocean wide. 

No more but two are yet to this day found, 

Which doth the hearts of their Relations wound. 

Whether some hidden Rock with fatal stroke, 
At once pjave Final stop unto their Course ; 

By which their Stem was Jammd and Boughs were broke, 
Not able to withstand so great a force, 

Thus some conceive who saw and viewed the Rack, 

Which quickly to the Shore was hurled back. 

Or Whether Loaden over deep with Wood, 
The Swelling Waves did fill her by degrees ; 

If then Frozen Pump would do no good. 
They soon became a Prey unto the Seas; 

Which Violently over them did go. 

And bore them down into the deeps below. 

What happened to them we can only guess. 
Because none of them did Survive to tell ; 

Nor can we think what Anguish did Possess 
Their Souls, when this Disaster them befell. 

We humbly must Adore God's Providence, 

Who in the Deeps His Judgements doth dispense. 

One Ephraim Turner near the fatal place. 

Was cast upon the Shore and next day found ; 

Most sorely batterd on his head and Face, 
Who decently was laid into the ground. 

Relatives of the Rest did search the Shore 

For thirteen days, but they could find no more. 

But on the Fourteenth day one did espie 
A Corps he judgd was Captain Collamore ; 

Yet could not know him to a Certainty, 
By anything, but by the Cloaths he wore. 

His Form and Visage utterly was lost, 

Having by Waves and Rocks been so long tossd. 



DESCENDANTS OF ANTHONY COLLAMER. 29 

His Friends, His Neighbors, and Relations all, 

Prepare his Funeral to Solemnize ; 
His Souldiers also at the mournful call, 

Appear with Drooping hearts and Dripping eyes, 
With many Tears they laid him in the dust, 
To wait the Resurection of the Just. 

And now although Relations of the Rest, 

Know their own Sorrows and Distress of mind ; 

While for the quieting their troubled Brest, 
They in the Creature no relief can find. 

Our Duty binds us all to Sympathize 

With such as Mourn in their Adversities. 

But Publick Persons are a Public J,oss, 
Because more useful, and more Eminent ; 

They in their places were the greater cross. 
And the more sad Occasion to Lament. 

The Death of Collamore we must bewaile, 

Our Glorys going when the FaithfuU faile. 

What Offices he bore of any kind, 

He did adorn with Carriage full of Grace ; 

His Modest, HumblC; Condescending mind. 
Could freely yield to any in their Place. 

To all Degrees above him and below, 

His rightly Ordered Courtesy did flow. 

Unto this Province and the Government, 
He was a Faithful and a Constant Friend ; 

In all the troubles which they underwent, 
And what he had, was willing to Expend ; 

For the Promotion of the Publick good, 

At any time in what he understood. 

In Scituate let each Inhabitants 

Greatly lament this worthy Persons fall ; 
Both Rich and Poor his Courtesy want. 

Who still was ready to oblige them all. 
It was to many, by Experience known, 
He valud others good before his own. 



30 GENEALOGY OF THE 

He was the Captain of the War like train, 
Love was his Banner, Love was his defence ; 

Their Chearful Service was returnd again, 
His Acceptation was their Recompence. 

In that Great Company Command he bore, 

Where Mustered two hundred men and more. 

In Judgment found, in Life Upright with all, 
A Zealous Member of the Church was he ; 

His vStudies and Endeavours waer not small. 
That to Christs Kingdom might Enlarged be. 

A Deacon also Faithful to his trust. 

To do that onely which was right and Just. 

The North Society in Scituate, 

Hath lost a Leading Man, and Loving Friend ; 
Who ready was with Person and Estate, 

On evry good Occasion help to lend. 
His Care and Conscience plainly did appear, 
To settle and maintain Gods Worship there. 

A Faithful constant Husband to his Wife, 
He also Tender was and Provident ; 

True Peace they cherished, and banished Strife, 
Enjoying what they had with good Content. 

Gods Blessing on their care and Industry, 

Did yield them Comfort and Prosperity. 

A Father carefull of his Children too, 

Whose Love to Souls and Bodies did Extend ; 

He spared not the best that he could do, 
In Warning them to mind their latter end. 

He did his just Commands meekly Dispense, 

And they did humbly yield Obedience. 

He was a Master full of Gentleness, 

Whose care it was things honest to Provide ; 

Obliging thus his Servants Faithfullness, 
And he did in their diligence Confide. 

So that to Serve him we may well Conclude, 

Was rather Freedom than a Servitude. 



DESCENDANTS OF ANTHONY COLLAMER. 31 

But God hath by his Sovraign Providence, 
Of such an Usefull Man this place bereft ; 

A deep Affecting and Afflicting sense, 
Is well becoming each one that is left. 

We all in his remove a loss sustain, 

Which sure God onely can make up again. 

Since therefore All things come alike to All, 
This Comfort in our Mourning doth remain ; 

Though Duty binds us to lament his fall. 
Yet in our loss, He hath the greater Gain. 

For Dying in the Lord, His Labours cease. 

And of such Upright Men The end is Peace. 

To Old and Young this Awf uU Sudden stroke. 

Doth Testify with loudest Vehemence ; 
God tryes by others Death us to Provoke, 

While it is Day to work with dilligence. 
Let then both High and Low and Rich and Poor, 
Lament the DEATH of Captain Collamore.

Biography. 

Peter, the only surviving son of Capt. Anthony Col- 
lamor, was a yeoman and cordwainer. He was an active 
man in the South Parish and in Scituate town affairs, 
where his name was one of ten recorded in the Record. 

He pastured his horses and cattle with those of his 
neighbors on the " Common Lands " of the town. The 
Town Clerk's books describe the brands and earmarks of 
each man's property. 

He also owned land at Little Compton, Rhode Island,

but none of the Collamor family ever settled in that 
locality ; and he disposed of his interests there by several 
deeds recorded soon after the year 1700. The homestead 
of 53 acres at Belle House Neck, which had come to him 
through his father and great-uncle Peter Collamor, " by 
way of Intailment ", he deeded to his eldest son, Anthony, 
reserving to himself " the Easterly end of the Dwelling 
House where I now live ". 

His son Anthony dying in 1746, the second son (John) 
became the responsible head of the family. To this son 
he sold the land on Wilson's Hill adjoining the former 
site of the Second Parish Meeting-House, which had pre- 
vious to that time been used by some families in the 
neighborhood as a burial pasture.

himself with the winning side. He was the Chairman of the 
Committee on Public Domains and submitted a minority 
report on the situation in Kansas in 1855. Senator Sher- 
man said of it, " In the majority report the true issue is 
smothered ; in the minority report it stands forth as a 
pillar of fire to guide the country." 

Senator Douglas said, of all men in debate he dreaded 
to meet Senator Collamer. Senator Blaine called him the 
wisest man he ever knew, and Sumner named him the 
Green Mountain Socrates. The greatest effort of his life 
was his speech denying the power of the President to 
declare peace by proclamation to the seceeded States. Of 
this speech Sumner declared that it was the brightest and 
most glorious moment of his long life. 

Judge Collamore drew up the great Act of July 13, 
1861, giving extraordinary powers to the President and 
the first congressional sanction to the war. He was a 
trusted friend and counsellor of President Lincoln, 

In 1864 he introduced a bill placing enlisted negroes 
on the same footing as white troops. The State of Ver- 
mont honored itself by having his statue placed in the 
old Hall of Representatives in Washington, D. C.

BIOGRAPHY. 

Edwin Samuel Collamer removed from Whitehall, N, 
Y., to Washington, D. C, in 1861, accepting a position 
which he held for 25 years. As paymaster in the Treas- 
ury Department, for the last ten years of the term he 
kept ledgers relating to the public debt. This being the 
period of the Civil War, these books were probably the 
largest and heaviest in use since man came upon the 
earth. Mr. Collamer resided in Washington about forty 
years, and celebrated there with his wife their golden 
weddingr.

biography. 

Warren Collamer was a farmer, and resided at Malta, 
N. Y. His old homestead is now occupied by a family of 
descendants. A lone tree on the farm, which he called 
his " old sentinel ", is still standing, and is supposed to 
be the tallest tree in Saratoga County. He was a member 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was a great 
exhorter. The "Hall Cemetery" was given by him 
from a corner of his farm, and in it are buried many of 
the Collamer descendants. It is a well kept cemetery and 
faces the main highway. The stones are clean and in 
good condition at the present time (August, 191 3).

John Collamore, yeoman, when he became of age, left 
the ancestral farm on Belle House Neck and established 
for himself a home on Gilman Plain, in West Scituate. 
He married Margaret, daughter of Enoch Whiton. Their 
dwelling on the northeast side of the Boston-Plymouth 
Stage Road, was also favorably known as a tavern for 
many years, and the house is at the present day (1915), 
in a good state of preservation. He inherited property 
from both his father and his mother. In 1747 he was 
appointed to administer the estate of his father (Peter 
Collamer), his brother (Anthony) having died in 1746. 
He was a member of the Second Parish Church in Scitu- 
ate. In the year 1750 he was summoned to sit on the 
Grand Jury at Plymouth. In his will, dated April 15, 
1755, he appointed Margaret (his wife) executrix of his 
estate. He gave to son Enoch " The farm where I now

BIOGRAPHY. 

Capt. Enoch Collamore married Hannah, daughter of 
Pyam Gushing of Hingham, and resided in the house 
where he was born, it having been willed to him by his 
father, who died when he was but ten years of age. He 
was a prominent, active and useful citizen in the town of 
Scituate. On the Lexington Alarm, April 19, 1775, he 
was a Sergeant, and marched as a Minute-man in Capt. 
John Clapp's company, in Col. John Bailey's regiment. 
From 1777 to the end of the war he was one of the Com- 
mittee of Correspondence, Inspection and Safety. In 1787 
he was on a committee to consult for the general good of 
the town and prepare instructions for their representa- 
tives. He served the town in the State Legislature for 
a number of years. He was captain of the Scituate 
militia. 

Capt. Collamore's name is among those that organized 
the Universalist Church Society in West Scituate. In 
early life he signed his name as Collamer ; but after the 
Revolution he signed it as Collamore, conforming to the 
spelling in the county of Devonshire in England, from 
which his ancestors had come.

BIOGRAPHY. 

Colonel John Collamore, eldest child of Enoch and Han- 
nah (Cushing) Collamore, was born in Scituate, Mass. 
He was a farmer — an enterprising and progressive man, 
who cultivated the acres of his ancestors with success. 
Like others of his race, he was prominent in the affairs 
of his native town. He always took great interest in 
military affairs. In the thirty years from the time he 
received his first commission as ensign from the Hon. 
Samuel Adams, Nov. 23d, 1795, until the expiration of 
that of Colonel, given him by Gov. JohnTBrooks, May 3d,

never but once absent from any regularly appointed train- 
ing or review. In civil life he served as Selectman, As- 
sessor, Justice of the Peace, and was a member of the 
School Committee. For several years he was on the 
Board of County Commissioners. Colonel John Colla- 
more was a member of the convention held in 1820 to 
revise the State Constitution. He was a deacon in the 
Baptist Church of Hanover, of which he was long an 
honored member, and was widely esteemed as a man of 
sterling integrity and fervent piety. He w^as twice mar- 
ried, first to Michal Curtis, daughter of Ebenezer Curtis 
of Hanover. Her grandfather, Bazaleal Curtis, was made 
one of the Committee of Correspond, Inspection and 
Safety for Hanover in 1775. Colonel John Collamore

BIOGRAPHY. 

Davis Collamore, twelfth child of Colonel John and 
Michal Curtis Collamore, seventh generation of the name 
in America, was born at Scituate, Plymouth Co., Mass. 
Having received a good academic education, he left home 
at the age of sixteen, went to New York to live with an 
elder brother, Ebenezer, and to commence his business 
life. Ebenezer was an importer of fine china and glass- 
ware at 151 Broadway. His home was in the neighbor- 
hood of St. John's Park. 

After six years with his brother, during which Davis 
learned the business and also made a thorough study of 
ceramics, he founded the house of Davis Collamore at 595 
Broadway, which continued practically unchanged till 1886, 
when it was made a stock company, with Mr. Collamore 
as president. Davis Collamore died on August 13, 1887. 

Highly endowed with what has been so aptly called " the 
gentle genius of taste," Mr. Collamore devoted himself 
to developing the artistic branch of his business. He soon 
became a connoisseur whose opinion was sought on these 
subjects. He did much to cultivate the public taste and 
to increase the love and understanding of ceramic art. 
He was the soul of honor and a man of spotless integrity. 



92b genealogy of the 

As a young man he was a member of the Seventh 
Regiment, and was on duty the night of the famous 
Astor Place riots. Always a loyal Republican, a staunch 
supporter of the national government during the Civil 
War, his commercial probity enabled his firm to meet 
every obligation through all commercial crises. 

Although always a resident of New York City, Mr. 
Collamore had a summer home in West Orange, New 
Jersey, where he had an estate of seventy acres on the , 
eastern slope of the Orange Mountain, commanding a fine 
view of New York, fourteen miles distant. 

During the early agitation of the subject of good roads 
in the Oranges, Davis Collamore, as a public-spirited citi- 
zen, served on the Township Committee, and as chairman 
of the Road Board was largely instrumental in securing the 
adoption of the Telford system at that time conceded to be 
the best form of road building. He was one of the original 
twelve members of the New England Society of Orange. 

From his Pilgrim ancestors he inherited all the charac- 
teristics of resolute courage and devotion to duty which 
marked " the sturdy settlers of the Plymouth Colony." 
It is interesting to note that both paternal and maternal 
grandfathers were members of the committee of Corre- 
spondence, Inspection and Safety, 1775. 

Though reserved in manner and of a dignified bearing, 
he was very hospitable and a charming social campanion. 
All those who knew him bear testimony to the upright- 
ness~ and purity of his life and to the many attributes 
which marked him pre-eminently the Christian gentleman. 

Davis Collamore married Hannah Augusta Fisk, a Bos- 
tonian by birth, daughter of Sewall Fisk, and a direct 
descendant of David Fisk, who came from England to 
Watertown, Mass., in 1642, and whose English record 
traces back in the direct line to Symon Fisk, Lord of the 
manor of Studaugh, Parish of Laxfield, County of Suffolk, 
England, in the reign of Henry VI, 1309-1422.

BIOGRAPHY. 

Gilman Collamore conducted a china and glass ware 
business at No. 731 Broadway, New York City, for sev- 
eral years, and then removed it to No. 19 Union Square. 
He made many visits to foreign countries in the develop- 
ment of his business ; and was one of the first to go to 
Japan in the interest of that business after the ports were 
opened to our trade. He resided in New York City dur- 
ing his business career. He was a man of stainless in- 
tegrity, of the highest sense of honor, and of many 
amiable qualities, and had the respect of all who came in 
contact with him. 

Fourteen years after Mr. Collamore's death, his widow 
married (in 1902) Justice Henry Bischoff, Justice of the 
Supreme Court of the State of New York, one of the ablest 
and most distinguished jurists of his time. He met his 
death March 28, 1913, by an accidental fall into an elevator 
shaft in the building where his chambers were located.

BIOGRAPHY. 

Dr. Anthony Collamore graduated from Harvard Col- 
lege in 1806. He settled in Pembroke, Mass., as a prac- 
ticing physician, where he lived and labored most accept- 
ably in his profession for thirty-nine years, leaving at his 
decease, which occurred in the sixty-first year of his age, 
the enviable record of " a well spent life ". 

His most intimate friend, the Rev. Morrill Allen, said 
of him, " His labors and usefulness were not confined to 
the duties of his callinor alone. He was a valuable coun- 
sellor in business concerns. So great was the confidence 
in his integrity and fidelity that trust concerns multiplied 
on his hands ; but he carefully guarded against the inter- 
ference of other affairs with professional duties." 

For one term Dr. Collamore represented the town of 
Pembroke in the State Legislature, but declined to serve 
a second term. He was a member of the Massachusetts 
Medical Society. He was a devout Christian and a mem- 
ber of the Unitarian Church of his town, and for the last 
twelve years of his attendance of twenty years he offi- 
ciated as one of its deacons.

John Hoffman Collamore was educated in Boston, at 
the old Salem Street School and at the Chauncy-Hall 
School. Afterwards he entered mercantile business, as 
appears from the city directory for the years between 
1840 and 1845. He was among the first to volunteer to 
go in the sloop-of-war ' Jamestown ' to the aid of the starv- 
ing Irish. For nearly twenty years he travelled in for- 
eign lands, canoeing on many of the larger rivers of 
Germany and France. He was allowed to follow the 
French army during the war with Austria and Italy. He 
also visited Mexico, South America, and the Hawaiian 
Islands. He was possessed of much property on Salem 
street and the Hoffman House on Columbus avenue was the 
largest building of its kind in the city at that time ; it 
was erected by him. He was much interested in Masonry

110 GENEALOGY OF THE 

BIOGRAPHY. 

Gen. George W. Collamore studied law and was ad- 
mitted to the Suffolk County Bar Nov. 27, 1852. A part- 
nership was formed with Mr. John A. Andrew, who was 
afterwards Governor of Massachusetts. The office of 
Collamore and Andrew was on Court St., Boston, until 
1856. Mr. Collamore was a Democrat and Mr. Andrew 
a Republican. In an attempt to visit Kansas in 1855, 
Mr. Collamore, we are told, was met on a steamboat by 
some men from Missouri, who made a Repubhcan of him 
in five minutes, and he returned East. But the next year 
he took his family, settled in Lawrence, Kansas, and was 
afterwards an active anti-slavery man. 

He was on the Board of Regents of the State Agricul- 
tural College in 1863. Serving as Quartermaster-General 
in 1861, he was very active in securing military protec- 
tion for the State. The U. S. Government had withdrawn 
the protection of its troops from the vicinity of the city 
of Lawrence, thinking their presence not necessary. It 
was surprised by Quantrell's band of raiders at daybreak, 
Aug. 21, 1863. They killed 183 persons and burned 
many buildings. Mr. Collamore, as mayor of the city, 
had worked many hours without rest, and came home 
early in the morning, leaving firearms at his office, and 
went immediately to bed, and was asleep when his house 
was surrounded. His dwelling was in the western part 
of the city, but was almost the first to be visited, as the 
band wished to make him a prisoner. The raiders met 
Mrs. Collamore at the door, and not liking her answers 
to their questions, they slapped her in the face. They 
then entered the house. Finding the son Peter in bed, 
they threw him out of the window, then set fire to the 
house. Peter, who was sick with fever, and supposed to 
be near death, ran away and hid himself in a cornfield.

He was none the worse for his experience, eventually 
recovering his health. Mr. Collamore, with a neighbor, 
entered a well under the ell of his house, hoping to find 
security from the band. After their departure, the cover 
of the well was removed, but no answer being made to 
calls to them, another neighbor descended the well, and 
was killed by the gases, as Gen. Collamore and his com- 
panion had been. 

Lieut. John Hoffman Collamore, eldest son of Gen. 
George Washington Collamore, was wounded by a shot 
from Quantrell's band of raiders when his father's house 
was surrounded. He was the target for many bullets as 
the raiders passed his body lying by the roadside, and his 
clothing was filled with holes ; but the first shot was the 
only one that penetrated his flesh. Soon after this event 
he enlisted as a private in a Kansas regiment. When 19 
years of age he was appointed second lieutenant in the 
3rd regiment Mass. Heavy Artillery, mustered at Boston 
Oct. 14, 1864. He was made first lieutenant Sept. 1, 
1865, and saw much rough service with the Army of the 
Potomac. On one occasion he succeeded in delivering an 
important message, after six other men had been shot 
from their horses in making the attempt. Being a large 
man, with robust frame, he had no fears for the diseases 
that took away many of his fellow officers. However, he 
finally succumbed to malignant fever and was sent North, 
where he died the last day of the war, Sept. 17, 1865.

Churchill. Failing health induced him to retire from the 
confinement of a store to life on a farm. He purchased 
an estate in North Pembroke, Mass., formerly oocupied 
by Dr. Jeremiah Hall, in 1821, and for the remainder of 
his days engaged in agricultural pursuits and conducted 
a country store. The Boston-Plymouth line of stage 
coaches made a change of horses at his stables for many 
years. He was President of the Plymouth County Agri- 
cultural Society for several years, and often contributed 
articles to agricultural journals. In the years 1841 and 
1842 he was Representative to the General Court ; and in 
1853 he was Senator from Plymouth District. He was 
a part owner in several vessels built on the North river 
between 1821 and 1840. He was Brigade Major and 
Inspector of the First Brigade, 5th Division, Mass. mili- 
tia. Postmaster for many years. Trustee of Hanover 
Academy, in which he took a great interest and in which 
most of his children obtained an education. His home 
was one of hospitality. With a large family of children, 
connected at one time with seventy-five cousins of mature 
age, life was always busy on the farm. With a great 
gathering of relatives and friends, he and his wife cele- 
brated their golden wedding in 1864.

Dr. Francis Collauiore attended Hanover Academy, 
and afterwards went to Harvard Medical Lectures in 
years 1843 and 1844. He received his degree from Dart- 
mouth College in 1847, He studied medicine with Dr. 
Bartlett of New Bedford ; also with his uncle. Dr. An- 
thony Collamore of North Pembroke. He began to prac- 
tice at Braintree, Mass., but left that place on the death 
of his uncle and located in North Pembroke, where he 
labored for sixty-three years, serving as Town Clerk 
twelve years. School Committee thirty years. Town 
Treasurer seventeen years. He was administrator of 
many estates. Secretary and Treasurer of the Marshfield 
Agricultural Society thirty years. Representative in the 
State Legislature in 1881. He was historian of his na- 
tive town, and at the time of his death was one of its 
leading citizens. Dr. Francis Collamore and his wife took 
a deep interest in the affairs of the First Parish(Unitarian) 
Church of Pembroke, of which they both were members, 
and of which he was a deacon for many years. He was 
the senior member of the Massachusetts Medical Society 
at the time of his death. 

A survey of his career as set forth in the preceding 
paragraphs must suggest to the thoughtful a life of 
ceaseless activity. Half a century as beloved and skilled

is in itself quite enough scope for the average man. 
"When one adds to this the important civic offices assumed 
from time to time, the posts of trust and honor in the 
church, agricultural and medical societies — one marvels 
at the record. And it was all done so calmly, unhurried- 
ly, with such old-fashioned faith and fervor, and the wis- 
dom of ripe experience. 

Next to his religious faith — unobtrusive, but deep- 
rooted in his nature — and love of his family, was his 
sincere patriotism. 

For the most part, Doctor Collamore was a man of 
deeds rather than words ; deeds that touched so many 
lives and spheres of endeavor with beneficence that they 
have piled up for him, like the stones of a cairn, his en- 
during memorial. 

Leander Collamore studied at Hanover Academy and at 
Phillips Exeter Academy, and was graduated at Dart- 
mouth College in 1856. He had the profession of law in 
view, but in the exciting time of the Kansas crusade he 
went to Lawrence as correspondent of the Boston Herald 
and the Old Colony Memorial. After eighteen months' 
residence in the West he died from fever. He was a pol- 
ished scholar and graceful writer.

BIOGRAPHY. 

Isaac Collamore in his will left to his sons Davis and 
Peleg the ' homestead and 36 acres of land in Scituate and 
the pew in the West Meeting House.' Each son deeded 
his share in the property to their brother-in-law, Nehe- 
miah Randall, in 1770. At this time Davis was a yeoman 
in the town of Scituate. There appears to be no record 
of what later became of him. He left no children so far 
as known. As a Minute-man he marched in Gapt. Ward 
Swift's (2nd Sandwich) company, on the Lexington 
Alarm, April 19, 1775.

biography. 

Peter Collamore, tanner, settled near the head of 
Greenland Bay, in the town of Bristol (now Bremen), 
Maine, about the year 1765. His house was on a hill 
adjoining a mill pond, the locality being known to this 
day as " Peter's house hill." He was long remembered 
for his kindness towards all his neighbors. He did mili- 
tary duty during the Revolution by patrolling the sea- 
coast. The ruins of his tanyard are still visible. 

Isaac Collamore, brother of Peter, was a captain of 
militia, and at the end of the war he was chosen by the 
town of Bristol to serve with others on a committee to 
see that no " refugee having taken position under the 
British flag during the late war shall be suffered to re- 
turn ". Capt. Isaac Collamore was married, first, to Miss 
Anna Dresso, Jan. 2, 1785, and, second, to Jane Robin- 
son, Feb. 9, 1809, at Bristol, Me. No record of children 
has been found. 

Joseph Collamore, brother of Peter, sold his land in 
Scituate, Mass., near Mann's Corner (now in North 
Hanover, Mass.), in 1762, and then removed to St.

George, Maine. No record of descendants has been

of Bristol), was without doubt the successor to his estate, 
taking also a wife from St. George before he removed to 
Liucolnville, Maine.

BIOGRAPHY. 

Peter Collamore, Jr., succeeded his father in the tan- 
ning business at the head of Salt Pond until about the 
year 1827, when he sold to Waterman F. Keen, mariner,

lots numbered 192 and 203 on the east side of Greenland 
Mill Pond, containing 68 acres. He afterwards dwelt on 
Bremen L. I., Me., in a house now occupied by the family 
of Mr. McCIain (1913). He was a large and very pow- 
erful man, and the part he took in the capture of the 
British privateer (the " Crown ") in the war of 1812 has 
become a household story among his descendants to the 
present day. About April 23, 1813, a number of citizens 
residing in the vicinity of Muscongus Harbor, Me., met 
and decided to procure a vessel and capture an 8-gun 
tender to H. B. M. frigate Rattler, which for some time 
had greatly interfered with fishing vessels along the coast. 
They secured the sloop "Increase", armed themselves 
with muskets, boarding-pikes, and a small swivel gun. 
Commodore Samuel Tucker took charge of the vessel, 
with its 96 volunteers. 

After several days of cruising, an armed schooner was 
sighted off Pemaquid Point, Aug. 26th. Commodore 
Tucker kept nearly all his men below until, as the ves- 
sels neared each other, the pilot of the schooner recog- 
nized Tucker and informed her captain, adding "there 
will be hot work ". The captain of the schooner, which 
proved to be the Crown (6 guns, 25 men), tender to the 
frigate -Rattler, immediately opened fire. The crew of 
the Increase sprang on deck, and the spirited fire of their 
muskets soon silenced the guns of the tender. One of 
the crew of the Increase, of giant proportions (Peter 
Collamore, Jr.), was ordered to stand ready to throw a 
kedge anchor on to the Crown as a grappling iron. See- 
ing this " giant fellow " standing ready to throw the 
anchor, knowing that his men had gone below, and that 
the sloop had taken the wind out of his sails, the captain 
called for quarter. The schooner surrendered and was 
taken to Muscongus Harbor and the crew lodged in Wis-

casset jail. The Crown had a full supply of provisions 
and ammunition from Halifax. These were distributed 
among the people of Bristol and near-by towns, who were 
much in need of them. 



Fifth Generation, 

524. Ezekiel, son of Peter and Elizabeth (Farrar) Col- 
lamore, b. Jan. 3, 1757, at Scitnate, Mass. ; m. Dolly 
Partridge, April 24, 1800, at Bristol, Maine. They re- 
sided on the south end of Bremen, Long Island, Me., and 
had no children. The house in which they lived was given 
to Thomas Collamore, and after him it was next occupied 
by his son Martin Collamore. Martin Collamore sold 
the place to Wilbur A. Morse. At the present time it 
is occupied by Charles Carter (1913). Ezekiel Colla- 
more, as a Revolutionary soldier, was in Capt. Caleb 
Turner's company in 1775-1776. He was on the sea- 
coast defence at Bristol and Booth Bay, Maine. 



Fifth Generation. 

525. John, son of Peter and Elizabeth (Farrar) Col- 
lamore, b. ; m. Sarah . They had no children. 

He died in 1826. He was possessed of considerable real 
estate in Bremen, Me. The State of Massachusetts re- 
leased land to him at the head of Greenland Bay in 1815. 
He was a cordw^ainer by occupation. In his will he be- 
queathed all of his property after his death to Sullivan 
Hardy of Bremen.

Wadsworth of Duxbury, Mass., and the Elisha Colla- 
more mentioned in the U. S. census of 1790 as an adult 
living at Barrettstown, and who also deeded land in that

Wadsworth). Abiah, the wife of Joshua Collamore, on 
May 9, 1803, deeded to her son Lebbeus 100 acres of 
land at Medumcook, " a certain farm or tenement being 
the farm which did belong to my former husband, Cor- 
nelius Morton. The History of Union, Me., shows the 
names of Joshua and Alpheus Collamore in the list of 
members of the Methodist Church in the year 1808. In

BIOGRAPHY, 

Elisha Allen Collamore was a shipwright, being em- 
ployed at various places in Canada and New York State. 
With his brother Thomas, he built the '' Cobourg," said 
to have been the first steamboat launched in Canadian 
waters. It was in use for 15 years in Rice Lake, but not 
being a paying venture in that locality, it was decided to 
move it into Mud Lake. The water between the two 
lakes was too shallow for the boat to float through, so 
they sawed it through the middle and slid the forward 
portion across, on the ice, but a thaw came, so it was im- 
possible to get the other portion across, and tradition says, 
" the first steamboat built in Canada was a mile from 
stem to stern." 

Elisha Allen Collamore married his wife at Elisburg,near 
Sackett's Harbor, N. Y., and some of his children were born 
in that vicinity. He and his wife joined the Unitarian 
Church in 1829. His wife died in the town of Greece, 
N. Y., and he soon afterwards removed to Canada and 
remained there for 14 years until his death, which was 
caused by drowning, by the overturning of a boat he was 
sailing down the Atonahee River to deliver to a man in 
Petersburg for whom he had built it. His body was re- 
covered two weeks after the accident and was buried in 
Petersburg.

BIOGRAPHY. 

Jacob Valentine Collamore was born at Han ford's 
Landing, in the town of Greece, Monroe County, N. Y. 
near the city oi Rochester. His mother djdng soon after 
his birth, he was taken to Canada by his father, where he 
lived until he was fourteen years of age. At this time 
they went from their home to Young's Mills, on the 
Atonahee River, to build a boat. When the boat was 
completed, they started down the stream in it to deliver 
it to the purchaser, who resided in Petersburg, twelve 
miles away. Elisha, the father, was steersman, and his 
son Jacob was the pilot. It was at a time when the water 
in the river was very high and the river bottom was full 
of rocks, which made navigation very dangerous. While 
attempting to make a landing, the boat was overturned 
by swift currents, and thej'^ were thrown into the water. 
Jacob swam for the shore, but the strong tide drove him 
back, until at last he succeeded in catching the branches 
of an overhanging tree two miles below the point of the 
wreck. The body of his father was found two weeks 
later at a place eight miles below where the boat cap- 
sized. After this experience, Jacob was taken by his 



DESCENDANTS OF ANTHONY COLLAMER. 149 

sister to Cleveland, Ohio, where he obtained a position in 
the Dunham House (now the Forest City Hotel). Thence 
he went to the Empire House in Akron, Ohio, and after- 
wards he removed to Warren and Youngstown, Ohio, and 
to Greenville and Sharon, Penn., where he was educated 
to be a practical engineer and iron and brass founder. 
At the age of 21 he was a finished workman, and was 
employed in Pennsylvania for many years as a foreman in 
works where they built an engine every day in the year. 
In 1861 he joined the army with his brother Thomas. 
He was in Co. B of the 57th Penn. Infantry, and saw 
service for three years and forty days in the Army Corps 
of the Potomac. This regiment was credited with thirty- 
two battles during the Civil War. In 1870 he went West 
as a pioneer with the Greely Colony, and located at Fort 
Collins in Colorado, where he resided for a number of 
years, building foundries and machine shops in Denver 
and other places. The last thirty years of his life have 
been spent as an engineer at West Unity, Ohio. He was 
an active member of the Methodist Church. He be- 
longed to Ring's Post, No. 637, G. A. R. Also belonged 
to West Unity Lodge, No. 638, I. O. O. F. ; also to Su-

A FAMILY RECORD. 



*' Everj'^ family should have a record of its own. Each 
has its peculiar spirit, running through the whole line, 
and in more or less development, perceptible in every 
generation." 

« We do not love our kindred for their glory or their 
genius, but for domestic affections and private virtues." 

" An affectionate regard for their memory is natural to 
the heart ; it is an emotion totally distinct from pride — 
an ideal love." 

" They are denied, it is true, to our personal acquaint- 
ance, but the light they shed during their lives survives 
within their tombs, and will reward our search if we ex- 
plore them." 

" Be their light, then, our beacon." 

— " The Lives of the Lindsays''' 



ANCESTORS. 



If you could see your ancestors 

AH standing in a row, 
Would you be proud of them or not, 

Or don't you really know? 
Some strange discoveries are made 

In climbing family trees, 
And some of them, you know, do not 

Particularly please. 

If you could see your ancestors 

All standing in a row. 
There might be some of them, perhaps. 

You wouldn't care to know. 
But here's another question, which 

Requires a different view — 
If you could meet your ancestors, 

Would they be proud of you ?
