PREFACE. 



This work has taken a considerable part of ni)- time for nearly 
ten years, and has been quite expensive in many ways. If a full 
year's time and the expenditure of two thousand dollars could 
have been given in addition for research in England, the comi)lete 
English record of the family could have been secured, but I have 
not felt that I could afford either time or expense. 

I started with the idea, simply, of tracing my own line of an- 
cestry, but have found this pleasant work leading me into so many 
other different lines that as a record of the Hodgdon family in 
America it is more complete than was at first intended. 

Thanks are due to Frederick M. Hodgdon of Haverhill, Mass., 
also to Fordyce C. B. Hodgdon of Key West, Fla., who have 
kindly offered to share in the expense of publication ; also to Miss 
Almira L. White of Haverhill for the able and conscientious man- 
ner in which she has edited the book, and to all others who have 
kindly furnished information and pictures. 

In the years of expansion of this country the Hodgdon family 
has had its share, and in the pursuit of industry and commerce 
has gone into many of the states of the union. Naturally the 
tracing of genealogical records has, therefore, met with some diffi- 
culties and the result is likely to fall short of being absolutely 
complete and perfect. The following record is, however, the 
result of careful and persistent inquiry, and no line has been left 
until satisfactory information has been secured, or the futility of 
further inquiry demonstrated. I trust that the book will meet 
with the approbation of the members of the Hodgdon family, 
that they may take pleasure in its reading, as I have in its 
preparation.

EXPLANATIONS. 



In arranging this work it has been my object to give all the 
authentic history and genealogy of the first hve generations of 
Nicholas Hodsdon and his descendants in the plainest manner. 
The work is carried forwartl in the usual form to the fifth genera- 
tion, then we have onl}' attempted to trace the families of Maj. 
Caleb and his brothers, Israel, Peter and John, and his sister, 
Abigail (ITodgdon) Peaslee. 

We find the name variously spelled and have copied it in every 
instance as we found it, one brother using the s and the other 
theg. 

The Arms of Hodsdon of Hodsdon, County Hertfordshire, 
England, were procured from Cullerton's Heraldic Office, Lon- 
don. They are inserted as the Arms of the family in England ; 
although, for want of time and money, we have been unable to 
trace the English ancestry of Nicholas Hodsdon. 

Arms : Argent, a bend wavy gules, between two hoi-se shoes 
azure. 

Crest : A man's head couped at the shoulders prosier, vested 
argent, on the head a cap or. 

Motto : Aninio et fide (By courage and faith). 

I have made use of no unusual abbreviations, using those of 
months and states, also, b., born ; bapt.,' baptized ; m., married ; 
d., died; p., page; vol., volume; dau., daughter. Each member 
is numbered at birth, and when the name is followed by -|- it will 
be found again in its proper place with the birth number in a 
bracket at the right of the name. If no -|- follows, all I could 
learn is recorded at the birth. The small sui:)erior figure at the 
end of each name denotes the generation.

GENEALOGY 



OF THE 



HODSDON OR HODGDON FA^\ILY 



1. Nicholas Hodsdon of Hingham, Mass, 1635; and in 1636, 
the town of Hingham, granted him a house lot in the center of 
the town, and later, two or more meadows were granted him in 
the same town; reference is made to these meadows, in a deed 
given by Samuel Ward of Charlestown, Mass., to Edward Wilder, 
Mar. 30, 1665. 

(Suffolk deeds, Vol. 4, p. 282.) 

Nicholas was made freeman Mar. 9, 1636-7, (in the record the 
name is given as Hudson), he remained in Hingham until alxuit 
1650, when in company with John Winchester, Thomas Ham- 
mond, John Parker, Vincent Druce and others, he purchased 
large tracts of land at Cambridge Hill, now Newton, Mass., near 
the line which divides Brookline and Newton. 

"Nicholas Hodsdin at Mr. Hibbins farme in Boston in Suffolk, 
hath souled to Thomas Hammond and Vincent Bruse (Druce ) 
both of Hingham, in the same County, a parcell of land containing 
sixty seaven acres more or less, lying on Cambridge Hill adjoining 
to John Parker's to the North, Northwest and Northeast of the 
said John Parker's with thirteen acres more or less of meadow 
belonging thereunto, the which land was by the Towne of Cam- 
bridge given to Robert Bradish. Also sixteen acres in Boston 
bounds next to Cambridge Hill to the South of it, and to the East

and North cast of Mr. Hibbins' land, to have and to hold " 

Dated, Feb. 4, 1650; recorded, Aug. 20, 1651. 
Middlesex C"iinty deeds, Vol. I; p. 24. 

"Nicholas Modsdon of Boston to John Parker of Cambridge 
a just third part of all the lands bought by him of Robert 



Bradish. Wife Elizabeth gives her consent and yields up her 

right, Mar. 20, 1651." 

Dated, Aug. 6, 16 — ; recorded. May 24, 1656. 

Middlesex County deeds. 

We find no deed or land grant between the above date and Oct. 
15, 1656, when he received a grant of land from the town of Kit- 
tery. Me., but seems to have been living there prior to that date 
as see grant below. 

"Granted, lotted and layed out by the Selectmen for Kittery 
unto Nicholas Hodsdon, his heirs and assigns forever, a lot of land 
above his house, bounded on the South side by Miles Thomp- 
son's land as may appear by several marked trees which go upon 
the line south east and by east unto the woods one hundred and 
sixty poles unto a tree marked four ways, and from said tree to 
go upon the line north and south and by east unto a marked tree 
Standing by the brook of Birchen Poynt and to come down the 
said brook unto the water or river, which brook is the bounds of 
said lot." 

Dated Oct. 15, 1656. 
Kittery town records, p. 9. 

Dec. 13, 1669, Nicholas received another grant of land from 
the town of Kittery, this lot being sixty poles in length, and ad- 
joining Birchen Point Brook. This lot was laid out Jan. 1672. 

In 1673, Nicholas received still another grant of land from the 
town, which was for 100 acres of land. This grant however was 
not laid out during his lifetime, but was sold by his descendants 
at various times. 

The following deposition of Nicholas and his wife is of interest, 
and shows that at the time they settled at Kittery, they resided 
at Quamphegon :

years and upwards. These deponents being sworne saith that 
fifteene or sixteene yeares agoe that Thomas Spensecr being at 
Quamphegon at the house wee lived in sayd, that he had given 
the one half part of the mill & timber thereunto belonging, 
being one quarter part of the mill unto Daniell Goodin for his 
dafters portion. Nicholas Hodsden & his wife replied & said, 
neybouer Spenser I wish you well to consider what )ou doe. for 
you had many children & every one would have a littcll and you 
cannot give every one such a Portion, and he answered & said, 
that she was the eldest dafter & hee had don yt & farthensaith 
not." Dated, Apr. 18, 1670. 

Nicholas purchased several lots of land in the vicinity of 
Birchen Point Brook. Peter Wittum sold him " forty acres of 
upland and swamp, butting upon the land of said Nicholas, and 
running back to Rocky Hills." 

John Wincoll sold Nicholas "one Tenement with about 30 
acres of land, bounded by land of Miles Thompson on the South, 
the River on the West and Birchen Brook and Co\e on the North 
and highway that leadeth toward Sturgeon Creeke." 

Dated June 16, 1674. 

The farm which Nicholas occupied the latter part of his life, is 
undoubtedly the one just montioned as having been i:)urchased of 
John Wincoll in 1674. It is situated upon the easterly side of 
the Piscataqua river, which divides Kittery from Dover. It is 
located in the extreme southerly part of South Berwick, and is 
bounded on the North by Birchen Point Brook ; on the south by 
the farm formerly owned by Miles Thompson. This last men- 
tioned farm was bounded on the south by Thomj^son's 
Brook, which Brook divides the towns of Eliot and South Ber- 
wick. 

The homestead, as will be noticed later, was given by Nicholas 
to his son Benoni, from whom it descended in regular gradation 
to John and Henry Hodsdon; who sold it to Theo. F. and Thom- 
as Jewett, May 17, 1828, (York deeds, Vol. 130. p. 82.) at which 
time the estate passed out of the Hodsdon family. The Jewetts 
sold the entire farm to William Flynn by deed of Jan. 28, 1850, 



12 GENEALOGY OF THE 

(York deeds, \'ol. 210, p. 449.) and it is still occupied by the 
widow and children of Mr. Flynn. 

" Agreement Ijetween Nicholas Hodsdon of Kittery, husband- 
man, and Benoni Hodsdon, son of said Nicholas, agrees that 
Bcnoni shall during the Natural life of Nicholas, have, hold and use 
in Partnership with his father, all that farm that his father has for 
several years lived upon, with all lands, medows, Orchards, Marshes, 
garden and all the privileges thereunto belonging or in any wise 
appertaining without any division of lands or houses, but in part- 
nership and the same shall hold during the Natural life of said 
Nicholas. 

It is agreed that all of the stock of any nature heretofore be- 
longing to the said Nicholas or Benoni are to be one half the said 
Nicholas and the other half the said Benoni. 

The said Benc^ni agrees to take the best of care of the farm and 
pay all charges and any profit arising from the product of the 
farm to be equally divided every year. 

It is agreed after the death of Nicholas the goods and imple- 
ments of the farm shall belong to Benoni." 
Dated, Dec. 9, 1678. 
York deeds. Vol. 3, p. 41. 

"Nicholas Hodgsden of Kittery for iJ"130 sells his son Benoni, 
all that my mansion or dwelling house and all barnes and edifices.

The seven acres given to John Morrell and his wife Sarah, 
were deeded them by Nicholas and his wife Elizabeth, Dec. 3. 1674. 
The lot was situated in the northeast corner of the homestead, 
and was bounded on the north by JiirclTcn Point I'look. Aiicv 
beini;- owned b)- various parties, the lot was purchased by IV-noni 
Ilodsdon in 17 03, when the entire homestead was once more

25, 164S, and Oct. 2, 1650, Elizabeth, widow of John Needham, 
as proved by the following, from Aspinwall Notarial Records : 

"25. 3. 1648, I did testifie unto a Lee of the Attorney made 
from Eliz. Needham to John Scarlet to recei\-e all such goods ns 
were due or belonging to her husband in Virginia. She being 
credibly informed of his death." p. 128. 

"2. 8. 1650, Nicholas Hodsdon and Eliz. his wife (formeily 
wife of John Needham) did make ordeine &c : Peter I>rackett of

The place and date of death of Nicholas and Elizabeth is un- 
known. They were probably buried in the graveyard which was 
laid out on a portion of the homestead, to which reference is made 
in the deed given May 17, 1828. " Reserving and excepting fp-m

Kittery; Me., where he he had grant of land laid out to him in 
1666, being about twenty acres which he afterwards sold to his 
brother Israel, as five years later James Emcr)- and Richard 
Nason testified that they laid out to Jeremiah Ilodgdon the land 
that Israel's house now stands on dated 1671. Kittery town 
records. 

Jeremiah Hodsdon was taxed in Cochecho, (now Dover,

Jeremiah settled in Portsmouth, N. H., and later at Great

ISRAEL Hodsdon" (5), bapt. at Hingham, Mass., July 19, 
1646, moved with his father to Boston, and later to Kittery, Me.; 
m. about 1670, Ann, dau. of Miles and Ann (Tetherly) Thompson 
of Kittery. The first record concerning Israel Hodsdon in Kit- 
tery is the following land grant: 

"Laid out unto Israel Hodgdon, his grant of ten or twelve 
acres, at ye east end of his house lot, Eightie rods in length to a 
great white oak, bounded on ye North with Etherington's land 
and on ye East with land of William Gowen, and on ye South 
with land of Tristram Harrison." 
Dated, Mar. 2, 1671. 
Kittery town records. 

Also " James Emery and Richard Nason testified that five 
years ago they laid out to Jeremiah Hodgdon, the land that Israel's 
house now stands on, being about twenty acres, bounded on the 
North by Ethrington's land and ye Commons on ye East." 
Dated, 1671. 
Kittery town records. 

And "Laid out to Daniel Emery twenty-two acres and half of 
land, it being part of a grant of 40 acres that was given to Israel 
Hodgdon by the town of Kittery Apr. 13, 1671 " 
Dated, 1722. 
Kittery town records. 

The last mention we find of Israel Hodsdon is the following : 
"Miles Thompson and wife, James Heard and wife, Nicholas 
Hodsdin and wife, Thomas Spencer and wife, William Furbush 
and wife, Israel Hodsden and wife and Richard Nason and wife 
were presented for not attending meeting." 
Jul. 6, 1675. 
York county Court records. 

It would look as though Israel Hodsdon and his father as well 
as some of their neighbors favored the Quakers, who were not 
popular at that time, for we find Nov. 12, 1659, in company with 
John Hoard of Kittery, Nicholas was ordered to appear at the 
second session of the General Court, to be held at Boston, and 
answer to the charge of entertaining Quakers. To this Nicholas

plead not guilty, but it was ordered that he be admonished by 
the Governor. 

We do not find the date of Israel Hodsdon's death, but his 
widow m. (2) about 1675-6, Robert Evans of Dover, N. II. He 

had had former wife, Elizabeth, dau. of Edward and Ann ( ) 

Colcord of Hampton, N. H. We do not find the death of Eliza- 
beth, but her last child was b. Jan. 25, 1671-2. and the first child 
of Robert and Ann Evans was b. in 1676. Robert Evans d. in 
Dover, Feb. 27, 1697, and his widow Ann was bapt. in the first 
church in Dover, Oct. 30, 1720, and admitted a member of the 
church the following month. She d. about 1727, and administra- 
tion on her estate was granted to her eldest son, Israel Hodsdon, 
May 30, 1727 ; in one of the papers in the case he mentions her 
as his mother. The children of Robert and Ann (Thompson- 
Hodsdon) Evans, b. in Dover, were : 

1. Mary Evans, b. 1676 ; m. Samuel Hart. 

2. Joseph Evans, b. June 4, 1682 ; m. Mercy Horn. 

3. Sarah Evans, b. Nov. 9, 1685; m. William Lewis. 

4. Benjamin Evans, b. Feb. 2, 1687 ; m. Mary . 



5. Hannah Evans, b. June 21, 1690; m. Zachariah Field; m. 

(2) Richard Hussey ; they were ancestors of John 
Greenleaf Whittier. 

6. Patience Evans, b. Sept. 5, 1693; m. Sanniel Scarlc. 

The estate of Israel Hodsdon was not settled until after his 
only son, Israel Jr., came of age, as shown b)- the following : 

" Administration is granted to Israel Hodsden of the estate of 
his deceased father Israel Hodsden, late of Kittery, in ye County 
of Yorke, and the said Israel Hodsden, as principal, Bartholomew 
Thompson and Thomas Thompson as sureties, own themselves 
to be holden and firmly obliged unto Samuel Wheelwright, Esq., 
his Successors in ye office of Judge of Probate, within the County 
of York, in the sum of seventy pounds. That the said Israel 
Hodsdon shall well and truly administer on the Estate of his de- 
ceased father Israel Hodsden, aforesaid, according to law." 
Dated, Jan. 19, 1696.

We find the following in the "Historical Memoranda Concern- 



HODSDON OR HODGDON FAMILY. 41 

ing Persons and Places in old Dover, N.H." "John Hanson was 
a son of Thomas Hanson, and grandson of Thomas, sen., who 
'tooke the oeth of fidellitie'at Dover June 4, 1661. John lived at 
Nock's Marsh on the place where Samuel Hanson now lives. 
Being a Friend, he refused to leave his exposed position, and his 
house was marked for an attack. Thirteen Indians and French 
Mohawks, lay for several days near it in ambush, waiting until 
Hanson and his men were away, for the Indians were a cowardly 
set of villains; and when he had gone to the week<lay meeting 
and two sons were at work at some distance, the Indians entered 
the house; Mrs. Hanson, a servant, and four children were in the 
house, of which, one child the Indians immediately killed to ter- 
rify the others; two other children were at play in the orchard, 
and would have escaped but that just as the Indians had finished 
rifling the house, the two came in sight and made such a noise 
that the Indians killed the youngest boy to stop an alarm, with 
Mrs. Hanson, her babe of two weeks, a boy of six years and two 
daughters, one fourteen years old, the other sixteen, and the ser- 
vant girl. All reached Canada, but the party was repeatedly sub- 
divided during the journey. 

The first person who discoverd the tragedy was Hanson's old- 
est daughter (afterward Mrs. Hodgdon) on her return from meet- 
ing. Seeing the children dead she gave a shriek which was dis- 
tinctly heard by her mother in the hands of the enemy and by 
her brothers at work. Persuit was instantly made but the Indians 
avoided all paths and escaped undiscovered. After this disaster 
Hanson removed the remainder of his family to the house of his 
brother 'who, says Belknap' though of the same religious persua- 
sion yet had a number of lusty sons and always kept his fire-arms 
in good order for the purpose of shooting game." 

Mr. Hanson soon after the attack went to Canada to ransom 
his family; the following item from the News-Letter of 1725 is 
of interest in that connection : 

" Newport. Aug. 27, (1725) On Tuesday last (Aug. 24) arrived 
here Mr. John Hanson, Dover, Piscataqua, and about a Month's 
time from Canade, but last from New York, with his wife & three 



42 GENEALOGY OF THE 

children and a Servant Woman, as also one Ebenezer Downs, 
having a wife & five children at Piscataqua ; also one Miles 
Thompson, a Boy, who were all taken Captives about Twelve 
Months since, by the Enemy Indians, and carried to Canada, ex- 
cept Mr. Hanson ; who at the same time lost Two of his sons by 
the Indians ; & now it hath cost him about ^700 for their Ran- 
som, including his other necessary charges. He likewise informs. 
That another of his children, a Young Woman of about Seventeen 
Years of Age was carried Captive at the same time with the rest 
of his Family, with whom he conversed for several Hours, but 
could not obtain her Ransom ; for the Indians would not consent 
to part with her on any terms, so he was obliged to leave her. 

Mr. Hanson got home 1 Sept. 1725, but he could not content 
himself while his daughter Sarah was in Canada ; and about the 
19th of April, 1727, started in company with a kinsman who with 
his wife was bound on a similarly sad errand to redeem children ; 
but he was taken sick on the journey and died about half way be- 
tween Albany and Canada. The daughter married a Frenchman 
and never returned." 

Mr. Hodgdon was taxed in Dover in 1741, at which time he was 
called an Ensign. In the several deeds given by him, he is called a 
housewright, as well as a yeoman. He probably followed both 
vocations. 

May 15, 1722, Israel sold William Twombly a tract of eight 
acres of land, situated at Barbadoes (Dover) ; being part of a 
grant of sixty acres of land at Salmon Falls, which were granted

Estes and Sarah his wife, sold their interest in an estate at 
Nock's Marsh, which belonged to John Hanson, deceased. 

Apr. 28, 1755, Israel of Dover (at this time the word junior

July 18, 1774, he was chosen one of a committee of five, to 
meet at Exeter, and appoint Delegates to join in a General Con- 
gress of the Colonies. He was chosen representative from Dover 
for the years, 1774, '77, '78 and '82. June 15. 1778, he was ap- 
pointed a committe to hire men for service in Rhode Island. In 
1785, he was chosen as 2nd Lieut. Colonel of the regiment of Ar- 
tillery of Dover. June 24, 1786, he was nominated a Special 
Justice of the Superior Court for Strafford County, to act in cer- 
tain cases.

(Strafford County deeds, vol. 129, p. 536.) 

Maj. Caleb lived on the Hodgdon farm at Dover, situated on 
the banks of Back River, not far from " Sawyer's Mills." It is 
occupied by the descendants of his youngest son, William Hodg- 
don. In early life he seems to have been a mariner engaged in 
the West India trade, but after the Revolution devoted himself 
to farming and looking after large tracts of lumber land, which 
were granted him in Carroll County. 

His will was written Feb. 17, 1810, probated May 28, 1814, 
from which we give the following extracts : — " Gives wife Eliza- 
beth, use of his house &c. 2 cows, horse and sheep ami part of

m. (1) Dec. 11, 1766, Mary, dau. of Azariah and Bridget (Hushbic) 
Boodey, b. in Madbury, N. H., June 23, 1749 ; .she was twin sister 
of Capt. John Boodey. They lived in Nottingham, N. IL, where 
Mary d., Oct. 30, 1770; he m. (2) July 9, 1772, Patience Cha.se, 
b. in Kensington, N. H., June 26, 1750. We quote the following 
from the pen of his nephew, Robert Boodey Caverly, the lawyer, 
poet, and author of the Caverly and Boodey Genealogies : — 

" Uncle Peter was a nervous, marvellous old gentleman. When 
a lad I saw him once, but can just remember his outlines. Mis 
dear Molly had gone beyond the river; — we had never seen her. 
He always travelled horse back on his old nag, fleet as the wind. 
Time then had in its toil and trial appeared to hang heavily 
upon him. His aged face had been seamed all over with its 
cares, his voice appeared cracked and broken, and his wintry 
locks lay loosely upon his shoulders. We can just remember 
how his veiny hand trembled as he sat at our mother's table feed- 
ing himself. We remember he spoke of his infirmities as painful 
to him, saying he used at home a wooden plate, with which to 
steady his fork But, oh ! it would have been music to you to 
see the old hero come and go." 

"Tradition in and about Madbury, among other things, says 
old Peter's horse, old Bright (by that name he called him), was a 
wonder among men and colts. The common highway was no 
sort of guide to old Bright ; his end and aim was always onward 
through the shortest way in the shortest time. Once given the 
point of compass, Bright needed no other direction ; his course 
was always in a direct line, straight forward through quagmires, 
over hedges, fences, brooks, walls and ditches. As the venerable 
charger leaped up and down, old Peter would occasionally be seen 
in the distance, leaning towards his journey's end, both hands 
fastened to the mane, his long gray locks tossed by the temjiest, 
and the skirts of his garments at an angle of forty-five degrees, 
carried back and fluttered by the breeze." 

After his first marriage Peter lived in Nottingham, then in 
Kensington, and in 1778 in Wolfboro, N. II.. ihi-n in Dover until 
1790, when he settled in Madbury, where he d. Apr. 19, 1827.

JOHN Hodgdon^ (361), b. in Dover, N.H., Apr 22, 1745, m. 
Jan. 22, 1772, Susannah, dau. of Joseph and Elizabeth (Tibbetts) 
Hussey, b. in Dover, Jan. 28, 1750. From his childhood he was 
fond of reading, and in one way and another he managed to ac- 
quire an excellent practical education, though he attended school 
but seven days. He drew up all his contracts, deeds, bonds, and 
obligations of every description; was a good land surveyor, made 
neat plans of his work, and computed the contents by triangulation. 
One of the few amusements of his busy life was the solution of 
problems in "Thomas' Farmer's Almanac" and in the newspapers 
of that early day. On the 1 8th of November, 1 7 7 1 , he purchased of 
Joshua Corliss, for the sum of ;^217, 16s., the nucleus of the farm 
at Weare, on which he lived and died. A log house then stood 
on the premises, but he at once erected a small frame house 
(about 20 X 12 feet, still standing), which soon gave place to the 
substantial house now (1888) occupied by his grandson, Moses A. 
Hodgdon. 

John Hodgdon had the usual experience, with rather more than 
the ordinary success, that attends pioneer life. Forests gradually 
disappeared, barns were built, orchards planted; and by industry 
and economy, field was added to field, pasture to pasture, until 
the "Hodgdon farm" became one of the most noted in the 
country. He also owned land in Hillsborough, Antrim, Unity, 
New Boston, Fishersfield and many other towns. In 1799 he 
purchased of the "Westford & Groton Academy Grant" a large 
tract of land in the eastern part of Maine, on which the town of 
Hodgdon now stands. In company with others, he purchased 
unsold lands in an old grant called the "Packer Right," which in- 
volved him in much litigation. In conducting his numerous law- 
suits, he manifested so much skill and ability, that the late Judge 
Jeremiah Smith once said: "I would rather have John Hodgdon 
associated with me in a land-suit than any lawyer of the New 



HODSDON OK llUDGDUN lAMII.V. I3J 

Hampshire bar." Gov. Samuel Bell, with whom John Hocl<;clon 
was associated in real estate transactions, notably one purcha.se of 
31,600 acres in Grafton County, once made a similar statement. 
Judge Smith and Governor Bell were his council until they were 
severally raised to the Bench. To a grandson of John I lodgdon, 
Judge Levi Woodbury once said: "My first case was a land-suit, 
in which John Hodgdon was plaintiff, and much curiosity was 
manifested at the bar to see who would be the sucessor of Smith 
& Bell. The case was well prepared, and the jury gave me a 
verdict. This case was a great advantage to me, and from that 
time I had an established reputation, that gave me a very large 
docket." Many anecdotes are related in which John Hodgdon's 
ready sarcasm was very effective. On one occasion when he 
drove up to the court house at Amherst, where a crowd had as- 
sembled, a youthful aspirant to legal honors called out in a ixit- 
ronizing tone, "Well, Mr. Hodgdon, so you've come again!" 
''Ye.s," he replied, "but if I had no more business here than thee 
has, I shouldn't come." "We must look out for Mr. Hodgdon's 
sharp tongue," was a common phrase among the lawyers. Aside 
from his larger real estate transactions, Mr. Hodgdon bought and 
stocked many farms for others to cultivate, and was one of the 
founders of a factory at Hillsborough Bridge, which at one period 
he carried on alone. He interested himself in imj)roving stock of 
all kinds. In 1812, he purchased, and brought from E.xeter, in 
his chaise, a Merino buck; about the same time, he bought, on the 
Connecticut river, a Merino ewe, for which he paid $125, and ten 
half breed lambs for $300. John Hodgdon was a man of large 
and powerful frame, about si.\ feet one inch in height; thin but 
muscular, usually weighing about 212 pounds In politics he was 
an openly avowed Federalist, looking more at national than local 
interests. He had an abiding faith in the simplicity of Christian- 
ity as taught by the society of Friends, and was a constant stu- 
dent of its distinctively doctrinal works. 1 le was a man of clear, 
vigorous intellect, sternly upright, always kne^v his own mind, and 
had little patience with indecision and inefficiency. He had an 
inexhaustible fund of anecdote, was quick in rcixirtee ami rhyme,

MOSES Hodgdon^ (1290), b. in Weare, N.H., Aug. 22, 1773; 
he received a common school education, was brought up a farmer, 
and inherited his father's farm. He was a man of splendid phy- 
sique, six feet four inches in height, and would weigh two 
hundred and fifty pounds. 

He was very energetic and took the lead in all his farming opera- 
tions. In 1882 Hon. John Hodgdon, his son, said of him, "He 
was the best farmer I ever saw; with him it was always 'Come 
boys' and everyone readily responded to his call; his energy was 
contagious." Mr. Hodgdon like his father was a member of the 
Society of Friends; tolerant and liberal minded, generous and 
sympathetic in deed, but chary in words. He was a man of large 
property, partly inherited from his father, and much increased by 
himself. He was the largest stockholder in Concord bank and 
had much to do with its affairs. He m. (1) Nov. 8, 1795, Dorcas

1800; he inherited the sterling integrity of his father, with the 
executive ability and many personal traits of his grandfather. I le 
received his preparatory education at the district school in WV-are, 
Gilmanton Academy and Phillips' Academy in Exeter, N. II., 
entered Bowdoin College in 1823 and graduated with distinguished 
honors in 1827. He studied law in the office of Allen Oilman of 
Bangor, Me., and was admitted to the bar in 1830. On the death 
of his grandfather, in 1821, Mr. Hodgdon came into possession of 
a large tract of land in Maine, and the conditions of ownership 
demanded immediate attention ; he therefore left his studies at 
Exeter, and, following the water courses and the paths of trai> 
pers and Indians, soon reached his grant in northeastern Maine. 
He at once organized a surveying party from the neighboring 
province of New Brunswick, laid out his land into lots, secured 
settlers to establish his claim, and thus founded the town which 
afterwards bore his name. In 1832, he was a delegate from Maine 
to the Democratic National Convention, held in Baltimore, which 
nominated Andrew Jackson for the presidency. In 1833. he was 
a member of the Governor's council ; and, through the influence 
of the Maine delegation in Washington, he succeeded in establish- 
ing a military post at Houlton, Me., and took an active and 
efficient part in the disputed boundary Cjuestion which led to the 
Aroostook war, a controversy finally settled in 1842, by the 
famous Ashburton treaty. Mr. Hodgdon held the office of State 
land agent four years, and that of bank examiner and commis- 
sioner six years. He was appointed by President Polk ronimis- 
sioner on the part of the State of Maine to confer with a like 
commission from Massachusetts to settle and distribute the ter- 
ritorial funds. In 1846, he was elected to the State senate, and 
the following year was president of that body. He was at one 
time general of a division of the State militia, hence the title of 
general, by which he was better known the latter i)art of his life. 
In 1853, he removed from Maine to Dubuque, Iowa, where he 
was regarded from the first as a leading ant! influential man. In 
1858, he was elected mayor, and in subsequent years tilled many 
positions of trust. He was senior warden of the Episcoixil church

as long as he would consent to an election, and was many times 
delegate to the national church convention. Gen. Hodgdon was 
a thorough partisan, but never narrow or petty, and bestowed his 
quiet sarcasm on political folly wherever it appeared. He was a 
typical gentleman of the old school, conservative in his tastes, 
stately in his bearing, somewhat formal in his conversation, but a 
delightful talker, original and always entertaining. In a memorial 
notice of Gen. Hodgdon, he is spoken of as " the noblest Roman 
of them all," and it is but just to say that his manners, his learn- 
ing, his character, marked the gentleman, the scholar and the 
Christian. Gen. Hodgdon married, in 1838, Margaret Amelia 
Leggett of New York ; they had no children, but adopted a little 
girl who became the pride and comfort of their lives. He died at 
Dubuque, Aug. 21, 1883.

He ran a store, hotel, saw and grist-mill, and was a large em- 
ployer of other men ; but never kept any written accounts or 
made any mistakes in his settlements. Always careful of his 
promises, but prompt to fulfill them, he was just as ready to com- 
pel others to fulfill theirs. Imagine a tall, broad-shouldered, 
coarse-featured man, riding on a spirited horse, seldom sitting in 
his saddle, but standing in the stirrups, invariabh' riding on the 
gallop and leaning forward as he rode ; wearing a broad-brimmed 
Quaker hat, turned up in front ; hail fellow, well met with every- 
one, and you have a correct picture of Ebenezcr Peaslee. He
