EXPLANATIONS. 



Through the kindness and financial assistance of the presi- 
dent of our association, Mr. J. B. White of Kansas City, Mo., I 
am able to send out this last volume of our family Genealogy. 
Though Mr. White is extensively engaged in Lumber and Bank- 
ing business in the South and West, as well as Deputy Governor 
General of Missouri, to the General Society of Colonial Wars. 
Yet since he learned of my work in 1S94, he has been deeply 
interested in the history, genealogy and ancestry of the family 
and besides helping me, when the work has been too hard for 
one, he has also employed men in England to look up the ances- 
try of John, out emigrant ancestor, and we hope yet to be able 
to give you the benefit of his expenditures there. 

Besides the 27,196, which are numbered in regular order in 
the three volumes, there are 808 in the first volume whose record 
was not received in season and had to be designated by letter ; 
984 in the second and 735 in the third, making the birth or 
baptism of 29,723 in the three volumes ; adding the 1,833 whose 
record is found in the "White Family Quarterly," giving 31,556 
descendants of John White. 

1 have used no unusual abbreviations, using those of months 
and states ; b. born ; bapt. baptized ; d. died ; p. page ; vol. vol- 
ume ; dan. daughter. 

I make no distinction in the male and female lines, except 
omitting the name of White when derived from our emigrant 
ancestor. 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. It 
no -|- follows, all I could learn is recorded at the birth. The 
small superior figures at the end of each name denotes the 
generation. 

This volume contains branches from the fifth generation, 
is not complete without the first volume, which gives the first 
five generations, also the old homesteads, and many articles of 
interest, as well as a complete copy of Mrs. Mary (White) Row- 
landson's "Removes," giving her captivity among the Indians 
in 1676.

GENEALOGY. 



Descendants of John White 
1638-190^. 



VOLUME III. 



DOROTHY Whitcomb 5 (685), b. in Lancaster, Mass., May 13, 
1739 ; m. in Leominster, Mass., June 23, 1757, Stephen Johnson 
of Leominster. There is a tradition in the family that Mr. John- 
son was from Hingham, and of Scotch descent, but we have been 
unable, though making every effort possible, to connect him with 
the Hingham family or that of any of the other early families of 
Johnson. Our first knowledge of him is his baptism, as an adult, 
July 30, 1749, in First church, Lancaster. They lived in Leo- 
minster, on the place recently owned by the late Jonas Col burn 
on Pleasant street. He was a very public spirited man and held 
many offices of public trust, was town clerk from 1767 to 1775. 
We do not find the date of Mr. Johnson's death, but his will was 
written May 9, 1799, probated Jan. 5, 1808. Mrs. Johnson d. 
Nov. 20, 1804, aged 65. Children: 

19630. Elisha Johnson, 6 b. in Leominster, Mar. 2, 1758. His

(Lowe) Hills, b. in Newbury, Mass., Feb. 1, 1766. They lived in 
Leominster, where he d. Apr. 18, 1815. Mrs. Johnson d. in 
Leominster, Aug. 20, 1851, when it was said of her: "Mrs. 
Johnson, widow of Joseph, occupied part of the house bought by 
her husband of Obadiah Hills in 1785, the remainder being occu- 
pied by his son, Capt. Joseph Johnson ; was familiarly known as 
Aunt Huldah, being always a welcome guest in the families of 
her neighborhood. Many of the younger generation cherished 
grateful remembrance of her kindly service by way of nice needle- 
work (which with her was a fine art), in preparing table and bed 
linen for housekeeping. In time of sickness and bereavement 
she was a tender nurse and kind friend ; her gentle and sympa- 
thizing presence was ever a benediction to the afflicted." Children :

Col. ADOLPHUS S. Hubbard 8 (20336), b. in Chicago, 111., 
July 7, 1838 ; where he was educated in the public schools. In 
1853 he entered the telegraph service as a messenger boy, ex- 
pecting to learn to be an operator. He was employed in this 
capacity for two years. He subsequently went into the transpor- 
tation business ; was superintendent of an express company and 
cashier in an express office. Going West, he stopped for a time 
in New Mexico, going later to San Francisco, arriving there Dec. 
28, 1866 ; where he has been deputy clerk of the city and county 
of San Francisco ; deputy superintendent of streets, and he was 
for five years employed in the United States mint. He m. in

Col. Hubbard's occupation is now given as " secretary of the 
California Historical Society," but he is connected with many 
other similar organizations. He was an instituting member and 
once vice-president of the California Genealogical Society ; an hon- 
orary member of the New Hampshire Historical Society ; cor- 
responding member of the Chicago Historical Society, the Rhode 
Island Historical Society and of the Oneida Historical Society, of 
Utica, N. Y. He was an instituting member and formerly sec- 
retary of California commandery of the Order of Foreign Wars, 
and is a member of the New Hampshire Society of Colonial 
Wars. He was president of the California Society of the Sons 
of the American Revolution in 1886 and in 1892, and he also 
bears the distinguished honor of being recognized as the founder 
of the Society. The idea of this society was first conceived in 
California, the California society being instituted in 1875 and 
completing its organization on July 4, 1876. Col. Hubbard is 
given the credit of organizing the society and in a still greater 
degree, of maintaining it through trials which would have dis- 
couraged a less patriotic man. The esteem in which his services 
in this connection are held is evidenced by the following resolu- 
tions passed by the California society Sons of the American Rev- 
olution September 3, 1892 : 

" 1st. That the Society places on record, that its existence to- 




Col. A. S. Hubbard. 



JOHN WHITE. 75 

day is due to the zeal, untiring devotion, and unceasing labors of 
Past President Col. A. S. Hubbard, who aided in its inception 
and has almost single-handed brought the Society through trials 
and discouragements which beset all new societies, to its present 
prosperous condition ; therefore it recognizes him as the founder 
of the California Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, 
and therefore founder of the Society at large. 

"2d. That the National Society of the Sons of the American 
Revolution is earnestly requested in its procedings and publica- 
tions to recognize Col. A. S. Hubbard as the founder of the Cal- 
ifornia Society, and thereby founder of the Society at large, an 
honor which by his patriotic labors he has merited, and to which 
he is justly entitled. 

" The congress of the Sons of the American Revolution held 
in Louisville, Ky., May 1, 1890, ordered that Bro. Hubbard's 
name be included among those of the president-general of the 
national society. 

" In California Masonic circles he enjoys the distinction of being 
the clean of the secretaries' corps. He is not the oldest in years 
nor has his term of service been the longest, but there is no Ma- 
sonic secretary now serving in California who was elected prior 
to December, 1864. He received his degrees in Chicago: in 
Cleveland lodge, No. 211, in 1863, of which he was the secretary 
from December, 1864, to December, 1865; in Washington Chap- 
ter, No. 43, Apollo commandery, No. 1, and in Chicago council, 
No. 4, R. and S. M., of which he was recorder in 1865. He was 

a charter member of Chicago commandery, No. 19, and served 
as its recorder. 

" Bro. Hubbard attended in Chicago the first reception to 
Abraham Lincoln after his election, at the Tremont House, Nov. 
23, 1860. As secretary he called out Cleveland lodge, No. 211, 
to participate in his funeral at Chicago, May 1, 1865. He was 
made an honorary member of Ashler lodge No. 308, Chicago, in 
1865. He took the first steps to organize Oakland commandery, 
No. 11, of San Francisco, was its generalissimo in 1876, 1877 and 
1878 ; he is now a life member of that body. He has been for 
the past ten years secretary of Oriental lodge, No. 144, which he 
served as senior warden in 1888 and 1889. He is an honorary 
member of the Masonic Veteran Association of California and be- 
longs to Golden Gate chapter, No. 1, O. E. S."

JOHN Whitcomb 7 (20587), b. in Batavia, N. Y., Oct. 4, 1816 ; 
went to Michigan in 1831, settling in Eckford, Calhoun county; 
m. Nov. 9, 1837, Nancy Emeline Hayes, b. in Saratoga county, 
N. Y., (a second cousin of President Hayes). They celebrated 
their golden wedding Nov. 9, 1887, in Batavia, Branch county, 
Mich., where they remained upon their farm until the next year 
when they went to Coldwater, Mich., to live with their daughter 
where she d. June 27, 1890; he d. in Coldwater, June 21, 1892. 
It was said of him, " Passed at the home of his daughter, Mrs. 
Eli Ball, at the ripe age of seventy-six, John Whitcomb. He 
came to Michigan in 1831, settling in Eckford ; in 1850 they 
moved to Gilead, Branch county, coming to Coldwater to reside 
in 1856, when he became Sheriff Green's deputy. In 1860 he 
was elected sheriff, holding the position four years ; in 1870 he 
was elected county treasurer, serving four years, and later he held 
the position of city marshal, and it can be said without fear of 
contradiction, that these several offices were never better filled. 
After several years he moved to his farm in Batavia township, 
where he resided until 1888, when a stroke of paralysis unfitted 
him for active business, since which time his home has been with 
his daughter Mrs. Ball. Coming from good old revolutionary 
stock, it is no wonder he was possessed of a firmness and decision 
of character that made him the admiration of all men ; yet with 
all, he was one of the most kindly, genial and social of men, 
possessed of a rich fund of humor and being a good story-teller, he 
was a most companionable man. Of the strictest integrity, his 



JOHN WHITE. 97 

word was as good as a bond, and he never made a promise that he 
did not intend to fulfil ; an unanswering Republican, almost the 
last words that passed his lips were, ' I hope Harrison will be re- 
nominated.' He was a Christian man, too, a member of the Free 
Will Baptist Church, faithfully living up to its teachings." Chil-

SAMUEL A. Nash 7 (20703), b. in South Hadley, Mass., July 
17, 1822 ; was educated at Amherst College, but, his father being 
a man of small means, he had to largely earn his own education, 
though he received some little financial aid from his brother.

Such was his love of books that it is related of him that as a boy 
when sent to the field to plow, he would frequently be found in a 
fence corner buried in his book while the plow stood idle, until 
he was aroused from his studies. The love of books and studies 
was the love of a lifetime ; as long as his failing strength in the 
last months of his life would permit he read constantly. After 
graduating he read law at Amherst for a time with Judge Dick- 
ison, then went to Gallipolis, Ohio, to make his home with his 
older brother, Simeon, with whom he continued his law studies, 
meanwhile teaching school at Kyger and Gallipolis until he was 
admitted to the bar, when he opened an office in Gallipolis, where 
he practiced his profession until declining health put an end to 
his active labors. He was elected prosecuting attorney of the 
county in 1855, and married, in 1856, Ruth H. Early of Virginia, 
sister of Gen. Jubal Early. Mr. Nash combined in an almost un- 
qualified degree those qualities that make a lawyer and those 
powers that make an orator; was one of the few lawyers who 
were equally ready and able to present a case to the court or jury. 
As a trial lawyer he probably never had an equal in that county 
or section of the state ; he was earnest in argument, keen in his 
analysis of the law of a case and his presentation of the evidence 
to the jury, with rare gifts of eloquence that made him an almost 
unequalled advocate. He lacked nothing that was necessary to 
the orator. His sense of humor was as keen as that of Swift : 
his wide and continued reading of the English classics had made 
him a master of English speech. His memory was wonderfully 
retentive. Added to these he was by nature a poet in the highest 
sense of the word : not a rhymster, but one who had the keen 
appreciation of the beautiful, the delicacy of touch, the sensitive 
nature, that makes poets and orators. He d. in Gallipolis, Sept. 
21, 1903. Children:

GEORGE S. Taylor 8 (2071 1), b in South Hadley, Mass., Mar. 
2, 1822; moved with his parents to Chicopee Falls in 1828 ; he 
was dependent on the schools of the town for his education, with 
the exception of a finishing course at the school kept by Rev. 
Sanford Lawton of Springfield, Mass. In 1839 Mr. Taylor en- 
tered the store of Colonel Bryant where he was clerk for two 
years. In 1842 he began work for S. A Sackford & Co., and 
soon afterward was made a partner in the firm, on his becoming 
of age in 1843. The name of the firm was then changed to Sack- 
ford & Taylor and he continued in the business for twenty years. 
He m. Nov. 25, 1845, Asenath B., dau. of Eliasand Rebecca (Gill) 
Cobb, b. in Princeton, Mass., Jan. 21, 1826; her grandfather, 
Moses Gill, was at one time governor of Massachusetts, and was 
so much esteemed by the people that when Gill was made a town 
it was given his name. Her grandmother Gill was a daughter of 
Rev. Thomas Prince, b. May, 1687, Harvard College, 1707, a son 
of Samuel of Hull and his second wife, Mary, dau of Gov. Hinck- 
ley. In 1840 Mr. and Mrs. Cobb left Princeton to reside in Chic- 
opee, where Mrs. Taylor's married life was spent and where they 
celebrated their golden wedding, Nov. 25, 1895. Mr. Taylor is 
one of the most respected and influential citizens of the city and 
was honored by being elected without opposition as first mayor of 
the city in 1891. He is loyal in his allegiance to the Republican 
party and has held the offices as selectman and assessor, also 
served three years in the legislature and one term in the senate 
at the opening of the Civil War. He has been justice of the 
peace since 1845 and special justice of the Chicopee police court 
until 1859. In 1863 Mr. Taylor engaged in the agricultural tool 
business under the firm name of "Belcher & Taylor;" this 
company continued for two years, when the " Belcher & Taylor 



116 DESCENDANTS OF 

Agricultural Tool Co." was incorporated ; since that time Mr. 
Taylor has been treasurer, and since Mr. Belcher's retirement in 
1866, he has also been the agent of the company. He is president 
of the Chicopee Falls Savings bank, of the Board of Trade, 
Young Men's Christian association, and Director of the Chicopee 
National bank of Springfield, and Director in the J. Stevens Arm 
and Tool co npany. He is a prominent, earnest and active mem- 
ber of the Congregational church and has been one of its deacons 
since June 20, 1857, superintendent of the Sunday School from 
1848 to 1887, is also a member of the Belcher lodge, Ancient 
Free and Accepted Masons, Unity chapter of Chicopee and a 
member of the Springfield Knights Templars ; he is president of 
the " Falls Building company." Mrs. Taylor d. in Chicopee Falls, 
Apr. 15, 1898; although still actively engaged in business, Mr. 
Taylor has gathered for me these records of the family of his 
grandparents, Oliver and Lucy (White) Taylor, for which he de- 
serves the thanks of its many members. Children :

Gen. WILLIAM H. Nash 8 (20812), b. in Gallipolis, Ohio, 
June 22, 1834, his parents having removed from South Hadley in 
1833; m. (1) Jan. 1, 1857, Sue S. Forsythe of Junior Furnace, 
Ohio, who d. in Van Couver Barracks, Wash., Aug. 10, 1891 ; 
m. (2) Mrs. Mary (Maxon) Wilson of Gallipolis, Feb. 22, 1892; 
they reside in Columbus, Ohio. His education commenced early 
in life at the Gallia Academy, famous in that part of the state 
from that day to this ; his education was completed with two 
years at Marietta College, Ohio. After leaving college he went 
to Cincinnati and became a clerk in one of the large wholesale 
and retail establishments in that city, where he remained until 
June, 1856, a period of more than three years. It was here that 
he received a thorough business education of a practical nature 
which stood him in good stead and was of great advantage to him 
in his subsequent career. In the fall of 1856 he entered business 
in his native town, continuing for about four years, when he dis- 
posed of the same. 

On June 1, 1861, General Nash entered the Union army, being 
assigned to duty in the department of West Virginia as military 
telegraph operator. In this capacity he served at the headquarters 
of Major Generals George B. McClellan and W. S. Rosecrans. 
He continued in service until November, 1862, when he was ap- 
pointed Captain and Commissary of Subsistence of Volunteers. 
Shortly after his appointment he was ordered to report to Gen. 
Rosecrans commanding the army of the Cumberland at Murfrees- 
boro, Tenn. His service in the army of the Cumberland lasted 
more than a year, until April, 1864. During that time he served 
on the staffs of Gen. Sheridan and Gen. Crook ; he served 
through the Tullahoma campaign and battle of Chickamauga. In 
April, 1864, he was transferred to the military department of 
West Virginia upon the request of Gen. Crook and was chief 
commissary on his staff during the famous Hunter's Lynchburg 
raid. He continued to serve as commissary of Volunteers until 
Dec. 15, 1865, when he accepted a commission in the same de- 
partment and with the same rank in the regular army, vacating 
on the same day his appointment as a volunteer officer by his ac- 
ceptance in the regular corps. 

Since the Civil War, he has served in his official capacity on 
the Rio Grande river of Texas ; then a brief service in Washing- 
ton — 1868-9; then commissary at Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1869, and 



130 DESCENDANTS OF 

part of 1870 ; then chief commissary of the district of New Mex- 
ico, with station at Santa Fe, from May, 1870, to November, 
1873 ; then to Louisville, Ky.; then to Cheyenne, Wyo., in 1876, 
to September, 1880 ; then to Boston, Mass., until December, 
1881 ; then to Washington, D. C, until December, 1884 ; then to 
New Orleans, La., until December, 1888; then to Fort Monroe, 
Va., until December, 1889; then to Vancouver Barracks, Wash., 
until April, 1897 ; then to St. Louis, Mo , until April, 1898 ; then 
to Washington city, where he was retired from active service be- 
cause of age. Promotion at first, in his corps, was very slow, he 
having served as captain from Nov. 17, 1865, to July 14, 1890, 
when he was promoted to major. He received his commission as 
lieutenant-colonel on June 10, 1896, and as colonel on Mar. 4, 
1898. On April 21, 1898, the president appointed Gen. Nash 
commissary general of subsistence with rank of brigadier general, 
United States army. At his own request, he retired May 2, 1898. 
Under the law governing the army, he would have been com- 
pelled to go upon the retired list upon reaching the age of sixty- 
four years; as this occurred June 22, 1898, he anticipated a few 
weeks, believing it to be for the best interests of the service and 
himself. After the retirement of Gen. Nash, he and his wife left 
Washington city, moving to Columbus, Ohio, his native state. 
(This is of necessity a very brief sketch of the career of Gen. 
Nash, in fact, a mere outline.) Gen. Nash d. in Columbus, Dec.

1801, d. Oct. 5, 1868. Mr. White was a lumberman and many 
have mentioned him to me as one very active in business, and 
highly respected ; that once seen, his fine form was not easily 
forgotten. He d. in Troy, N. Y., Feb. 2, 1881, and the following 
is from the "Troy Times" of that date: "Thomas White, one 
of our oldest and most respected citizens died at noon today at 
his residence, Number 84 Fourth street. The deceased was 
eighty-five years old. . . He came to this city at an early age, 
for many years was engaged in the lumber business and was the 
agent through whom all lumber for the Rensselaer and Saratoga 
road was purchased. For several years he was president of the 
Troy Orphan Asylum and at the time of his death was one of the 
trustees. For a long period he was a director of the Troy City 
Bank, and at the time of his demise, was one of the directors of 
the Rensselaer and Saratoga railroad. Mr. White was a man of 
unsullied character and unquestioned integrity through a busy 
and useful life. He was formerly one of the most active and in- 
fluential of our business men, but age and sickness some time 
since impaired his powers and during recent years he has not 
been prominently identified with local interests, but took great 
pleasure in witnessing the progress of the city ; and felt no little 
pride in the success and prosperity of his friends ; he was truly a 
good man and citizen and among the older, especially, his death 
will be very greatly lamented." Children :

Capt. LUCIAN A. Cook 8 (21526), b. in Leominster, Mass., 
Aug. 6, 1838; was educated in his native town, attending the 
Leominster High school. At the breaking out of the Civil War 
in 1861, he was a member of the Leominster Light Infantry, and 
with that organization was mustered into the service of the 
United States, July 12, 1861. The company was designated as 
Company A, 1 5th Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers. He 
was in all the actions in which that gallant regiment participated, 
until his capture at the battle of Antietam. He was taken to 
Libby prison, Richmond, Va., and after a few weeks was paroled 
and carried to "Camp Parole," Annapolis, Md., and shortly after 
returned home as a paroled prisoner. On account of his injuries 
received at the time of his capture, a severe attack of fever and 
ague, and general disability incident to severe campaigns and 
prison life, he received an honorable discharge, Dec. 31, 1862. 
During the year 1863, he resided a short time in Brookfield, 
Conn., and after his return to Leominster, received notice that 



JOHN WHITE. 189 

he had been drafted to fill the quota of Brookfield. He, at once, 
reported to the authorities in Connecticut, but was at once re- 
jected. It being his wish to do such military duty as lay in his 
power, he enlisted in a band organized by P. 5. Gilmore for ser- 
vice in the Gulf States, Nov. 23, 1863. This band was known as 
the " First Brigade Band " and a part of the time was assigned to 
the 81st Regiment, United States Infantry, Department of the 
Gulf. By reason of failing health he was discharged at New Or- 
leans, July 20, 1865. 

July 9, 1868, he, with others organized Post 53, Grand Army 
of the Republic and was elected its first commander. In the 
spring of 1868, feeling that Leominster should be represented in 
the State Militia, he with several other veterans of the late war, 
in twenty-four hours recruited a company of sixty men, who were 
shortly after mustered into the service of the state for a term of 
three years as Company K, 10th Regiment, Massachusetts Vol- 
unteer Militia. At the election of officers he was unanimously 
chosen Captain. While this company was under his command, 
he was one of the most earnest, faithful and eminently successful 
company commanders in the state. During this time the Leomin- 
ster Light Infantry, as an organization, was an honor to the state 
militia and to the town of Leominster. This office he continued 
to hold until his death, which occurred Mar. 13, 1873. He was 
buried with the military honors due his rank, the funeral being 
largely attended by the officers of the regiment. Capt. Cook was

LEVI 5 (728), b. in Lancaster, Mass., bapt. Oct. 1, 1763. It is 
said that he enlisted in the Revolution at the age of sixteen, and 
we find him with rank of private on the company returns of 
Capt. Nathaniel Wright's Co., as belonging in Lancaster, and en- 
listed for Lancaster, Oct. 11, 1781 ; discharged Dec, 1781. His 
name again appears on a warrant to pay officers and men on a roll 
bearing date, Mar. 7, 1783. (Massachusetts Archives, State 
House, Boston.) 

He m. Apr. 3, 1791, Polly or Mary, dau. of Dr. Enoch and 
Eunice (Richardson) Dole, b. in Lancaster, Aug. 2, 1771. Dr. 
Dole was a surgeon in the Revolution and in the memoirs of 
Major General Heath under date of March 9, 1776, is written: 
" This night a strong detachment went down to open a work on 
Nook Hill in Dorchester still nearer to Boston. Some of the 
men imprudently kindled a fire behind the hill previous to the 
hour for breaking of ground. The enemy discovered the light of 
the fire ; and there was, during the evening and night, a continual 
roar of cannon and mortars from the castle and guns on Boston 
Neck, south end of that town ; as well as from the Americans at 
Roxbury, Cobble Hill and Leechmore's Point at Cambridge. The 
second shot from the British at the old fortifications south end 
of the town of Boston killed 4 Americans who were standing 
around the fire before mentioned at Nook Hill ; one of whom was 
Dr. Dow of Connecticut." 

For Dr. Dow should here be read Dr. Enoch Dole of Lancas- 
ter, surgeon of Colonel Ephraim Doolittle's regiment, as an epi- 
taph in the old cemetery at Littleton tells : 

"Here lies ye Body of Dr. Enoch Dole of Lancaster A.E. 33 
Years 5 mo & 3 days, he unfortunately fell with 3 others ye 9th 
of March 1776 by a cannon Ball from our cruel and unnatural 
Foes ye British Troops while on his duty on Dorchester Point."

(Carter) Richardson, b. in Leominster, Jan. 1,1816. Mr. Gates 
said that when a lad his chief ambition was to get his liberty, 
leave the farm, get behind four spanking horses and be seated in 
the box of the stage-coach (that being the only means of public 
travel in his youth). Instead of becoming a skilled reinsman, he 
became a school-master, a deputy-sheriff, a farmer and manufac- 
turer, but not all at the same time. When nineteen years of age,

he went to Wayland, Mass., and attended a school kept by Rev. 
Gardner Rice ; he was there ten weeks, when Marshall S. Rice 
of Newton Center, Mass., came over and invited him to go to 
Newton, where he said he had two boys who worked for their 
board and tuition, and he offered Mr. Gates the same chance. If 
there came a stormy Saturday, school was in session, and the 
holiday then came on some pleasant week day, when the boys 
would be able to do some work. He also attended Uncle Tom 
Frye's Quaker school at Bolton. Mr. Gates taught school four 
winters in Leominster and one in Lunenburg, Mass., receiving 
eighteen dollars per month and his board ; he then went to Wor- 
cester, Mass., as a clerk for Col. Ivers Phillips, who was a dep- 
uty-sheriff under High-sheriff Willard. Mr. Gates acted as a clerk 
from March to September, when he was appointed as a deputy. 
He said the appointment frightened him when he thought of the 
forty thousand dollars sureties he must furnish, and he told 
Sheriff Willard it was no use to try to get bondsmen, but the 
sheriff said, " You go to Leominster and get twenty-five of the 
best men there on your bond," and he found them in one day's 
time. He remained in Worcester two years and a half. When 
his grandfather, John Divoll 6 (22913), died, his mother went back 
to the old homestead and wanted him to come home and take 
his father's farm which she vacated, which he did, the farm later 
being taken by his brother, Augustus, he buying a saw and grist 
mill. Hearing of a man in Naugatuck, Conn., who wanted a mill 
and water privilege to make buttons, he went to see him, with 
the result that a room was fitted up for him in one of the mills, 
and he began here the button industry. He remained a year and 
a half, then Mr. Gates and Mr. Sydney Harris of Clinton made 
buttons there ; later he manufactured buttons alone, and for a 
brief time made bone pencil tips. He remained on this place for 
fifteen years, until his mother's death, in 1862, when he went to 
his grandfather's farm, and upon that place, which bears the 
name "Whiting Gates farm," remained until he was seventy- 
seven, when he gave up the larger responsibilities and built in 
Leominster Center. Soon after, when Leominster Park was 
created and an artificial lake made, a large part of the farm was 
submerged. After becoming of age, Mr. Gates never missed a 
state or town election, was a regular attendant at all town meet- 
ings. He was the oldest native-born member of the Unitarian

Mr. Whitcomb went to Worcester in 1846 and was em- 
ployed in the machine-shop of S. C. Coombs & Co. for four years, 
when his brother Carter purchased the Copying-press establish- 
ment of George C. Taft. The business developed rapidly and the 
firm was known as C. Whitcomb & Co. In addition to the 
manufacture of copying-presses, the firm began the man- 
ufacture of metal -working machine tools. This branch of the 
business soon outstripped that of making copying-presses ; his 
brother retired from the firm in 1871 and it has since been known 
as the Whitcomb Manufacturing Co. In partnership with Mr. 
Augustus Rice, Mr. Whitcomb succeeded to the business of 
Timothy F. Taft in 1866. As a separate firm, the business of 
making metal shears and presses was conducted until the retire- 
ment of Mr. Rice in 1881 resulted in the union of the two con- 
cerns owned by Mr. Whitcomb. He was one of the projectors 
and founders of the Kabley Foundry Co., and has been an officer 
of the company for many years. For fifty years, Mr. Whitcomb 
was active in the development of Worcester's industries. Al- 
though two destructive fires entailed heavy losses, his credit 
remained unimpaired. He was interested neither in politics nor 
secret societies and the greater part of his time outside of busi- 
ness was passed at his home. He d. in Worcester, Mar. 28,

HENRY C. Tenney 7 (22416), b. in Marlboro, N. H., Dec. 26, 
1830. From an early age he manifested an unusual fondness for 
books, and zealously applied himself to every means of obtaining 
knowledge. He devoted his evenings to study, improving all the 
facilities of his native town, then completed his preparation for 
college at Westminster, Vt, under Professor L. F. Ward. His 
close application to study permanently injured his eyesight ; and 
with the cherished object of his ambition almost within his grasp, 
he was forced to forego his plans for college and a professional 
career. He m. Mar. 18, 1858, Julia C. Stebbins of Hinsdale, N. 
H. For several years he was a successful teacher, holding suc- 
cessively the position of principal of Mettowee Academy, Pawlet, 
Vt., Peterboro Academy and the High School in Marlboro. 
Leaving his native town, he visited the land of gold on the Pa- 
cific coast, and finally settled, in 1862, in East Jaffrey, N. H., 
where for nearly six years he was clerk of the cotton factory 
of A. Bascomb & Co.; he was held in the highest esteem by his 
employers. In 1868, he settled in Orange, Mass., opening a gen- 
eral store under the firm name of H. C. Tenney & Co., which 
was gradually changed to a hardware, paint and oil house. He 
was one of the founders of the Orange Savings and Orange Na- 
tional Banks, and was an officer in each. His voice is often 
heard in the business and literary circles of the town of his adop- 
tion. He possesses in a marked degree the faculty of concentra- 
tion, or thinking upon his feet, ever ready to answer with crushing 
effect any and every attack upon him. As a man in all the va- 
rious stations of life, he is ever the firm lover and champion of 
right. Children :

strictly a temperance man, when every one else thought it did 
them good to drink ; yet his neighbors said that they never knew 
him to drink spirits but once, and that was at a wolf-hunt, 
where one was killed, and the bounty paid in rum, and, while the 
rain fell in torrents, he drank with the others. But the influence 
of his temperance habits has been very salutary on his family, 
for no one of them has ever made excessive use of ardent spirits. 
He built upon his farm, during his occupation of it, two houses, 
four forty-feet barns, one hundred and eighty feet of wood 
houses, tool houses, sheds and a cider mill, one set of barns and 
sheds having been struck by lightning and consumed in August, 
1829. He d. Oct. 1, 1849. His widow d. Apr. 10, 1862.

devoted his attention to farming. His good qualities of head and 
heart were soon recognized by his fellow citizens, and he became 
one of the leading men of the town. His sound judgement and 
general intelligence fitted him for any position in the community; 
he was frequently elected to fill the civil offices of the town, ser- 
ving as selectman for some fifteen years. He was representative 
in the legislature in the years 40-42. He did a large amount of 
business in the settling of estates; his familiarity with the law fit- 
ted him for this kind of business. 

The crowning excellence of Deacon Baker's life is to be found 
in his devotion to his Divine Master and in his noble Christian 
character. He experienced religion in early life, and united with 
the Congregational church, through the trying period of the early 
history of the little church in Troy, he was one of few who re- 
mained steadfast to the Congregational faith; and through his and 
his co-laborer's efforts, under the divine blessing, the church 
lived and prospered. Soon after he became a member of the 
church, he was chosen a deacon, and as an officer in the church, 
he was vigilant and faithful, watching over its members and lab- 
oring to promote their spiritual welfare. After a long and useful 
life he d. Sept. 26, 1878, calmly, and in full assurance of a glorious 
immortality. Children.

Maj. JONATHAN Grout 5 (825), b. in Lunenburg, Mass., 
Apr. 24, 1760; m. int. pub. (1) May 17, 1788 in Charlestown, 
N. H., with Parthena, dau. of Peter and Sarah (Farnsworth) 
Page, b. in Charlestown, Dec. 6, 1769 and settled in what is now 
called Snumshire in Charlestown. Maj. Grout, as he was famil- 
iarly called, was an officer in the militia and also a justice of the 
peace. He was a good citizen, with at once the independence of 
his father, "the brave old commissary," with many of the idio- 
syncrasies which appear to be somewhat inherent in the Grout 
race and which often created no little amusement. After the de- 
cease of his first wife, when his situation, and the condition of his 
family were such, that he stood in need of another, the widows 
and marriageable ladies of the time began to manifest some curi- 
osity, as he was a man in prosperous circumstances, to ascertain 
who might be the favored one, on whom his choice would fall. 
And such became the interest of some in the subject, that they 
even dared to approach him with the question, " Major Grout, 
which of us do you intend to take ? " To which the good Major 
good-naturedly replied, "Wait till Thanksgiving time, and I will 
show you how I feel towards you." When Thanksgiving day 
arrived, great amusement was created on learning that he had 
sent to every widow in town, a pumpkin and pint of molasses 
that they all might be furnished with pumpkin pies for that 
occasion. 

His choice, at length, after a suitable time, fell on Mrs. Mary 
Prouty, widow of Samuel Prouty, Jr., [dau. of Elijah and Mary 
(Stevens) King], and according to the usual custom of those 
times, in order to introduce his wife to her new neighbors, he 
soon gave a wedding party, to which as his house would not hold 



308 DESCENDANTS OF 

the whole town, he invited only those who lived between the two 
brooks, or between the upper and lower mills. This did not 
please some of his friends, outside of those limits, who received 
no invitation, and who therefore made no little talk about it. 
This coming to the ears of the Major, he said he would give an- 
other party before long, and when he did he would give such a 
party, as nobody could have any reason to find fault with. This 
declaration he made good by inviting the whole town's poor ; and 
one who was present at this gathering, describes it as one of the 
happiest she ever attended. Major Grout went after them with 
a four-horse team, the finest that he could obtain ; and the repast 
that was set before them, was not only bountiful, but most in- 
viting. Of course there was no fault to be found with his party 
this time, and the persons who were dissatisfied with the first 
one, not only forgave him for what they had regarded as his ne- 
glect, but praised the goodness of heart, and heartily laughed at 
the eccentricity, which prompted the happy turn he had made. 

His second wife dying he m. Jan. 16, 1833, Lydia, dau. of

The following notice of Mr. Hamlin appeared in the Granite 
State Journal, published at Claremont, soon after his decease on 
the third of May, 1875 : " Ashbel Hamlin, Esq., died on the 3d 
of May, at his home in Charlestown, at the venerable age of 77 
years. Mr. Hamlin was not only well known in Charlestown, 
but extensively, through his business relations, throughout Sul- 
livan and Cheshire Counties. He was one of the selectmen in 
Charlestown in 1838-39-40, and '41, and the representative of the 
town in the Legislature in 1841-2. He was chosen one of the di- 
rectors of the old 'Connecticut River State Bank,' and held the 
same office in the Connecticut River National Bank up to the 
time of his decease. He was also one of the directors of the 
' Cheshire Mutual Fire Insurance Company.' Mr. Hamlin met 
with an accident about 17 years ago, by being thrown from a 
carriage, which resulted in a spinal affection, from which he suf- 
fered so much that for several years previous to his decease he 
was able to give but little attention to public affairs. During the 
last three years of his life, he was in an almost helpless condition, 
though he occasionally rode to the village, to attend to absolutely 
necessary business." Mrs. Hamlin survives her husband.

(Stevens) Stevens, b. in Rutland, Mass., Oct. 2, 1739. He came 
with his father to No. 4, now Charlestown, in early life. When 
ten years of age, he was taken prisoner by the Indians and car- 
ried to Montreal, June 17, 1749. He was kindly treated and im- 
mediately sent back, so that he arrived at home about the middle 
of the September following. He retained to the close of his life 
a vivid recollection of his captivity. The following is from his 



JOHN WHITE. 313 

son, late of Barnet : " My father was a lieutenant in 1756. I 
had his journal of an expedition up West River and so on to Fort 
Massachusetts. His diary was burned in the Vermont State 
House. It seems from this that the above commission was con- 
ferred upon him when only about sixteen years of age. 

" He was elected one of the selectmen of Charlestown for the 
years 1773-75-76. 

" In the war of the Revolution he took the side of the British. 
His father and brothers had been honored by commissions from 
the Governors of New Hampshire and Massachusetts Bay, while 
they were British provinces, and like many others, no doubt, he 
thought that the powerful crown of Great Britain would soon 
crush the infant American Republic. In his journal he writes : 

"Charlestown, N. H., May 2nd, 1777. Set out for New York; 
left my all, for the sake of my king and my country." 

In New York he joined a volunteer company appointed to keep 
guard on the coast, but it does not appear that he was ever en- 
gaged in battle. He with six others, Sept. 30, 1782, received a 
commission from his excellency the Commander in Chief of the 
British forces, to go to Nova Scotia to take charge of the provis- 
ions, arms and amunition sent by the Commander in Chief for 
the use of refugees, going with them to settle in that country, 
and divide the same among them. 

He bought land and settled in Digby, Nova Scotia, where he 
resided until 1775. After the war he applied to the British gov- 
ernment for indemnity for "loyalty, losses and services," but it 
is not probable that he was indemnified, for his property was not 
confiscated. In his journal he writes, "Feb. 25th, 1785. Came 
to Charlestown ; found all my friends well ; seven years and ten 
months since I left this town." He went from Charlestown to 
Barnet, Vt., and was present at a meeting of the proprietors, 
Aug. 23d, 1785, and drew shares in the town as one of the pro- 
prietors when the first division took place. Soon after he sold 
his possessions in Nova Scotia and went to Barnet to reside, 
where, having purchased the lands owned by his brother, and ob- 
tained vendue titles to others, he became proprietor of the prin- 
cipal part of the township with which his interests and history 
became identified. 

In the autumn of 1790, Dr. Jonathan Arnold of St. Johnsbury, 



314 DESCENDANTS OF 

Vt., being on a journey down the river stopped for a night with 
Mr. Stevens, (then keeping bachelor hall at Barnet). In the 
course of the evening the circumstances of their solitary condi- 
tion becoming a subject of conversation, an expedition to Charles- 
town was immediately planned to take effect on the morrow, the 
object being to spy out the available daughters of the land. On 
their arrival they called on Samuel Stevens, Esq., a brother of 
Enos to whom they communicated the object of their coming. 
A consultation was held, and an arrangement entered into to 
issue invitations to Cynthia Hastings and Sophia Grout, daughters 
respectively of Lemuel Hastings and Elijah Grout, requesting 
their presence at tea, it being understood by those in the secret 
that the strangers from Vermont were to accompany them home, 
when each of the gentlemen before separating from his com- 
panion for the night made known the special object of his visit to 
Charlestown. It does not appear that Sophia Grout, who was well 
acquainted with the Stevens family, was at all reluctant to accept 
the offer that was made her. But the difficulty which she had to 
surmount in connection with her family was not small ; for 
Stevens, during the war of the Revolution, had espoused the 
cause of the mother country, and the Grout family could not bear 
that one of their number should become connected with a man 
who had not been a tried and true patriot. At length when it 
was found that her determination had become too strong to be 
properly resisted, she was finally told that if she would marry an 
old Tory she might, but that she should carry nothing from the 
paternal mansion but herself and a cow. To this she agreed, and 
on the 4th of March, 1791, the afflicted Grout family witnessed 
the departure of Sophia with Stevens for their home in Vermont.

the citizens of Boston. He d. in 1855; Mrs. Case then returned 
to the Sawyer homestead in Lancaster, where she spent many 
years. She spent the last years of her life with her brother, Mr. 
John Sawyer, at Wellesley Hills, Mass., where she held a recep- 
tion to her friends and relatives May 7, 1893, on her one hun- 
dredth birthday ; and I had the pleasure of calling upon her in 
January, 1894, when she told me of her grandparents and uncles 
and aunts, repeating many little incidents in regard to them. Of 
her brother, with whom she lived, she told me that, when eighteen 
years old, she took him on horseback, then nearly a year old, and 
carried him to her aunt's and kept him a week to wean him. 
" Yes," said her brother, "and though I am now eighty-three, I 
am only a boy to Sally, and she criticises me quite sharply some- 
times." 

Though so very aged, the morning I called, her niece, Miss 
Augusta Sawyer, who cared for her, was busily engaged so that 
she did not go at the usual time to assist her aunt in dressing. 
When she entered the room, some half hour later than usual, she 
found her up dressing herself. While talking with me she sat in 
her chair, and when relating anecdotes her eyes would sparkle 
and it was very hard to realize that she had lived through more 
than a century. She was for many years, and at the time of her 
death, a member of the Congregational church of Lancaster.

tablished the first firm in New England to deal in daguerreotype 
findings, and later in photographic apparatus and material. He 
moved to Wellesley Hills, Mass., and later retired from business 
on account of ill health. Both Mr. Sawyer and his wife were 
active workers in the cause of anti-slavery and numbered among 
their personal friends most of the prominent Abolitionists, includ- 
ing the late Frederick Douglass. At their home, gatherings of 
liberators frequently took place, and to the movement they lent 
generous financial support in its darkest days. Later, they iden- 
tified themselves in an equally practical manner with woman's 
suffrage work. Mr. Sawyer was a firm friend and supporter of 
Theodore Parker. At Wellesley Hills he was an organizer of 
the old Liberal Society, from which was developed the present 
Unitarian Church They had no children, but their niece, Au-

HENRY O. Houghton, A. B. 7 (25852), b. in Sutton, Vt., Apr. 
30, 1823. At the age of thirteen he became an apprentice in the 
office of the "Burlington Free Press," and there laid the founda- 
tion for his future career. His brother was at the time in college 
at Burlington, and, listening to his advice, he determined to ac- 
quire a thorough education. His evenings and other spare 
moments were devoted to study ; and at the age of nineteen he 
entered college at Burlington, with twelve and a half cents in his 
pocket, but with a substantial preparation and dauntless reso- 
lution. He graduated four years later, went to Boston, and 
spent two years on the " Evening Traveller " as compositor, 
proof-reader and reporter. In January, 1849, he joined Mr. 
Bolles, of the firm of Freeman & Bolles, in establishing a printing 
office in Cambridge, Mass. It was first located in what is now a 
dwelling house near Harvard College. Three years later the 
business was removed to the present site on the banks of the 
Charles River, where the Riverside Press assumed an individuality 
and a name, resulting in the present imposing group of buildings. 
From the first Mr. Houghton was the controlling spirit of the 
enterprise ; his purpose was not merely to do good work. It 
was to do the best work that could be secured anywhere and to 
make books that should satisfy the artistic feeling as well as the 
literary sense. In 1880, the house took its present title, Houghton, 
Miffln & Company. 

On April 1, 1888, three new partners were admitted, among 
them, Henry O. Houghton, Jr., who still represents the name in 
the business. Mr. Houghton, Sen., was one of whom it is said 
in dealing with others, he had the faculty and disposition to put 
himself in their place and think how he would feel in their cir- 
cumstances, which made it very pleasant for those whom he em- 
ployed. He m. in Cambridge, Sept. 12, 1854, Nanna Myer, dau. 
of William Manning. 

Mr. Houghton's home was in Cambridge, where he served the 
city as Mayor, 1872, and in many other ways. He d. in North
