NOTE. 




OME years ago I began to collect material 
to make a genealogy of the Hoffman Family 
in this country. It gradually grew upon my 
hands, and I soon found that to make it com- 
plete required much more time than I was 
able to give to it. Recently I placed the 
material in the hands of my friend, Miss Elizabeth Dodds, who, 
with great pains and patience, has visited the localities where 
the graves of the family ancestors are to be found, copied the 
data on their tombstones and in the records of the old Dutch 
Churches, together with those found in family Bibles, wills and 
deeds, and from these has been able to compile a nearly com- 
plete list of the descendants of its first ancestor, Martin Hoff- 
man, who emigrated to America in 1657, and settled in 
Ulster County, N. Y. The Genealogy is now printed for the 
benefit of the various members of the family who are inter- 
ested in the records of their ancestors and the names of those 
with whom they are more or less closely connected. 



The data here given are correct as far as can be ascertained; 
but I shall be glad to receive notice of any errors, or of any 
additions which can be made to them, for use in the event of 
another edition being printed.

BIOGRAPHY 



" There is a moral and philosophical respect for our 
ancestors which elevates the character and improves 
the heart. Next to the sense of religious duty and 
moral feeling, I hardly know what should bear with 
stronger obligation on a liberal and enlightened 
mind than a consciousness of an alliance with ex- 
cellence which is departed, and a consciousness, 
too, that in its acts and conduct, and even in senti- 
ments and thoughts, it may be actively operating 
on the happiness of those who come after it." 
Daniel Webster. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES OF 
THE HOFFMAN FAMILY. 




^ I I /yr-^ "^^^ family is of Swedish origin, though 
the name is distinguished in Dutch and 
German Hterature. It is not improb- 
able that the Dutch and German famil- 
ies are of Swedish extraction and came 
originally from Sweden, as, in the time 
of Gustavus Adolphus, 1611-1632, large numbers of 
Scandinavian families removed to Holland and Ger- 
many. The name in the Scandinavian dialect seems to 
have been Hoppman, signifying in Swedish the same as 
Hoffman in Dutch, viz., "Man of Hope." Arthur, on 
Family Names, says : " Hoffman : Dutch, from Hoofd- 
man, a Captain, or Director, or Head or Chief man. 
Also Hofman, from Hof, a Court, the man of the Court." 
There were several individuals of the name of Hoff- 
man, who arrived in some of the early migrations of the 
Swedes to Delaware, who were included among those 
transferred by Governor Stuyvesant (on his conquest of 

95 



96 €jjc Jpoffinan ^encalogp 

New Sweden, to prevent a revolution among them in 
favor of Queen Christina of Sweden) to the City of New 
Amsterdam, where they commingled Swedish blood 
with the original Dutch population of the city. 

I Martin Hermanzen Hoffman, son of Herman 
Hoffman, was born, about 1625, at Revel (on the 
Gulf of Finland, at that period belonging to Sweden, 
but now part of Russia, having been conquered by 
Peter the Great in 17 10). He is said to have been 
Ritmaster in the army of Gustavus Adolphus of Swe- 
den. It is probable that he lived, prior to his emi- 
gration to America, at Ezen, Ostenbenzie, Holland 
(though he is described in the registers of this coun- 
try as being from Revel), for Martinus Hoffman was 
authorized by his brother-in-law, Tjerck Claessen de 
Witte (the ancestor of the De Witt family in New 
York), to recover some property for him at Ezen, 
Ostenbenzie, Holland. 

Martin, or Martinus, Hoffman emigrated to Amer- 
ica about 1657. He settled first in Esopus (Kings- 
ton), where in 1658 he joined with other residents 
(against the orders of Ensign Smith, in command of 
the garrison there) in an attack on the Indians.* He 
removed to New Amsterdam (New York), where, ac- 
cording to a Directory of the city published in 1661, 
he was living in De Heere Straat (now Broadway) 
in that year, and was a large taxpayer. It is stated 
that he was an extensive auctioneer. In New Am- 
sterdam he contracted his two marriages, and here 
two, at least, of his children were born and baptized.

From New Amsterdam he removed to Albany, then 
known as Fort Orange, where in 1672 he was Hving 
in a house conveyed to him in that year, and which, 
with the lot on which it stood, is referred to in other 
deeds as a boundary. In December, 1676, he sold 
this property to Cornells Cornelise Van de Hoeve, 
and bought another house and lot in Fort Orange, 
where he was living and following the occupation of 
a saddler in 1678. Shortly after this time he removed 
to Ulster County, N. Y., and settled in Kingstowne. 

" Marten Hofman " received a grant from the 
Crown of land in the " Towne of Kingstowne," Ulster 
County, which is recorded in the County Clerk's 
Office at Kingston, under date of February 6th, 1688,

Among the Conveyances and Land Grants recorded 
in the County Clerk's Office at Kingston, N. Y., there 
is a deed, dated February 18, 1697/8, by which Huy- 
bert Aertsen conveys to Antje Hoffman " a house 
and lott of ground in Kingstowne, to the South of 
the Bridge Street, to the West of the ground of Ten- 
nis Oosterhout, to the East of the ground of Jan 
Gacherie, and to the North of the ground of Roelef 
Kierstede" for sixty pounds. 

Another deed records the sale of this property 
by Antje Hoffman, on August 18, 1699, for eighty- 
three pounds. 

There is also recorded, under date of October 29, 
1698, the grant of land and a house to Antje Hoff- 
man from Claes Tennis Klier and Annetje, his wife. 
This deed was witnessed by Zacharias Hoffman. 

Annetje Hoffman married, in the Reformed Dutch 
Church at Kingston, January 4, 1702, Hendrik Pruyn 
(born June 13, 1670), son of Francis and Alida Pruyn. 
They left no children.

I LANDS IN SHAWANGUNK, 1716. 



J>cconti (penetration lo- 



Hester Bruyn's stepfather, Severyn Tenhout, made 
a marriage settlement on Hester Bruyn and Zecha- 
rias Hoffman, under date of May 17, 1706, which is 
recorded in the County Clerk's Office at Kingston, 
N. Y., in the following words : 

" Whereas there is an agreement of marriage be- 
tween Zacharias Hoffman of Kingstowne and Hester 
Bruyn of Shawangonck, (daughter of Geertruy Ten- 
hout, wife of Severyn Tenhout) Severyn Tenhout 
does grant and convey a parcel of ground near Sha- 
wangunk known by the Indians by the name of 
Mascaks to said Zachariah Hoffman and Hester 
Bruyn." 

From this time Zecharias Hoffman lived near the 
Shawangunk Mountains, in the beautiful valley of the 
Wallkill, where his descendants became at one time 
so numerous as to constitute a distinct settlement 
known as Hoffman Town. 

Zecharias Hoffman also acquired by purchase a 
great deal of ground in Ulster County, chiefly in 
Shawangunk, and became one of the largest landed 
proprietors in the county. There are no fewer than 
eight separate deeds of conveyance of property to 
him recorded in the County Clerk's Ofifice. In 
1 7 16 he received from the British Government 
Letters Patent for three tracts of land in Shawan- 
gunk, containing eight hundred and thirty acres, 
along the banks of the Wallkill and Shawangunk 
Creeks, and described as being bounded by land 
already owned by him. The original Patent for this 
property has remained in the Hoffman P'amily and 



I04 €fjc ]^of6man "^mcalogp 

is here reproduced. It gives some curious details as 
to the tenure of land under Government in those 
days of the Colony. 

The right is reserved by the Crown to " all such 
ffir trees and pine trees of the diameter of ffour and 
twenty Inches at twelve Inches from the ground or 
root as are or shall be fit to make Masts for our 
Royal Navy, as also all such other trees as are or 
shall be fit to make Planks and Knees for the use of 
our said Royal Navy which now or for ever shall be 
standing growing or being upon any of the three 
tracts of land with ff"ree Liberty and License for any 
persons appointed under our Sign Manual with 
workmen horses waggons carts and carriages and 
without to enter the said land and premises and 
there to fell cut down root up hew saw rive have 
take up cart and carry away the same Trees Masts 
Planks and Knees for the aforesaid uses." Another 
clause is inserted providing for the clearing and im- 
proving by the grantee of three acres out of every 
fifty acres within three years after the granting of 
the Patent, which Patent is to be rendered " utterly 
void " if the grantee, for the purpose of clearing the 
property, shall set on fire or burn any of the woods. 
The property was to be " Holen of us our Heirs and 
Successors in fifree and proper Sonage as of our Man- 
ner of East Greenwich in the County of Kent within 
our Realm of Great Britain " ; and the annual ground 
rent for the property thus granted was two shillings 
and six pence (sixty cents) for every hundred acres. 

Zecharias Hoffman lived at the old homestead at 



if>cconb <i5meration 105 



Shawangunk until his death in 1744. By his will, 
dated February 25, 1743/4 and proved May 8, 1744, 
he bequeaths to his heirs his home-farm, land on 
Shawangunk Kil, on Mary Kil, in Graham and Griggs' 
Patent on Hudson River, mill on the Wallkil, land 
at Newburgh and in Kingston Corporation. He 
mentions his children, Zacharias ; Jacob; Geertruyd, 
wife of Nathaniel du Bois ; Ida, wife of Cornelius 
Bruyn; Janneke, wife of William Rosenkrans ; and 
Margaret, wife of Thomas Jansen, and his grand- 
daughter. Ester Rosenkrans. 

Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvester, in his History of 
Ulster County, N. Y., gives the following particulars 
in regard to Zachariah or Zacharias Hoffman : 

" Among the early settlers of Shawangunk (the 
first settlement was made between 1680 and 1700) 
were Jacobus Bruyn, Cornelius Schoonmaker, Zacha- 
riah Hoffman, etc. 

" Zachariah Hoffman settled where Benjamin Freer 
now lives. He was one of the Trustees of the Glebe 
from 1722 until his death in 1744. He married 
Hester Bruyn, and had five children, of whom Zacha- 
rias, Junior, occupied the homestead property." 

The freeholders of the Town of " Shawengough," 
as recorded by Jacobus Van Dyck, " Sherrif," July 
I, 1728, to the Supreme Court, included " Capt. 
Jacobus Bruyn, Capt. Zacharias Hoffman, etc." * 

Zacharias Hoffman was Captain of a Company of 
Militia in Ulster County, a Muster Roll of his Com- 
pany, dated April 27, 17 16, and another of " Capt.

5 NicOLAES- (Martin'), son of Martinus Hoffman and 
Emmerentje de Witte, was born in Kingstowne, Ul- 
ster County, N. Y., circa 1680. He settled in Esopus, 
(now Kingston), and the stone mansion erected by 
him on the corner of North Front and Green Streets, 
once used as a fort, is still standing, and is now (1899) 
occupied by one of his descendants. 

A writer in the New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society's Record, July, 1892, says: 

The old colonial town of Kingston, in Ulster County, con- 
tains many buildings, besides the old Senate House recently 
purchased by the State, which are of great interest to the anti- 
quarian. Among them is the old Hoffman liomestead, situated 
on the corner of North Front and Green Streets, which was 
the northwesterly comer of the stockade with which Governor 
Stuyvesant caused the new village to be enclosed in 1658. 

* N. Y. Documentary Hist., IV, 236; N. Y. Colonial MSS., LX, 84.

This point, which commanded a large extent of lowland, was 
an excellent position for defence against Indian attacks, and 
the house, with its heavy stone walls pierced with loopholes, is 
supposed to have been erected by Martinus Hoffman,* who 
came from Sweden, and is the ancestor of the Hoffman family 
in this country. It suffered in the general conflagration by 
the British under General Vaughn in October, 1777. The 
walls were left standing, however, and the house Avas after- 
wards rebuilt in its present shape. The ceilings throughout 
the entire house are supported by the old-fashioned Dutch 
horizontal beams, some of which still show the marks of fire. 
The present owner is Ira Hoffman, and the recent marriage of 
his daughter Mary Frances to Ralph D. Clearwater (another 
historic Ulster County name) was a marriage in the eighth gen- 
eration of the Hoffman family in this old homestead. ''E." 

On November 5, 1707, Antonje Crispel conveyed 
to his daughter Jannetje, wife of Nicholas Hoffman, a 
stone house and lot of ground in Kingston, with fences, 
orchards, gardens, etc. This was a " corner house 
on the West of Kingstowne, bounded North and 
West by the Street, and East by the house of Ever- 
ardus Bogardus, and South by the house of Jellis La 
Grangie." 

Nicolaes Hoffman, like his brother Zacharias, made 
extensive purchases of property, acquiring large es- 
tates in both Ulster and Dutchess Counties. He 
obtained grants of land near Kingstowne from the

of property from Gerrit Aertson in 17 1 8, and from 
John Rutson in 1720. 

On September 11, 1721, a conveyance was exe- 
cuted from Colonel Peter Schuyler to Captain Nicho- 
las Hoffman of " land in Dutchess County, going by 
the name of Mastenbrock, bounded Southerly by land 
of Barent Van Benthuysen, Easterly and Northerly 
by the Manor of Livingston, and Westerly by the 
Hudson River." This conveyance, recorded in Book 
CC, pp. 209-10, in the Office of the County Clerk 
at Kingston, N. Y., is the first record we have of the 
possession of property in Dutchess County by the 
Hoffinan family, who afterwards became such ex- 
tensive landowners in that county. 

In 1732 there are recorded two conveyances of 
property in Dutchess County to Nicholas Hoffman : 
the first, dated January 12, conveys "two lots of 
land in Dutchess County, from Pieter Knickerbacker 
to Nicholas Hoffman, of Ulster County, for £24^ ; 
No. I containing 116 acres and i rod; No. 2, 96 
acres and 2 rods, bounded West by the Hudson 
River, North by the Manor of Livingston, and South 
by land of Knickerbacker." 

By the second conveyance, dated March 20, 1732, 
Cornelius Knickerbacker, of Dutchess County, con- 
veys to Nicolaes Hoffman, of Ulster County (by and 
with the consent of his wife, Anatio), land in Dutchess 
County, bounded by the Hudson River, and adjoin- 
ing the land formerly conveyed to Nicolaes Hoff- 
man, for the sum of iJ"300. 

Nicholas Hoffman's name appears in the list of

freeholders of the Towne of Kingstowne, in 1728 ; 
and in the Census of Dutchess County, taken in 
1740, he and his son, Martinus Hoffman, are named 
as freeholders. 

Among the English manuscripts in the office of 
the Secretary of State at Albany is a Muster Roll 
of Captain Nicholas Hoffman's Company in Captain 
Jacob Rutsen's Regiment, Ulster County, Novem- 
ber 21, 17 1 5.* This military organization was in 
accordance with an Act entitled, " An Act for the 
better settling the Militia of this Province, and mak- 
ing it more useful for the Security and Defence 
thereof," passed by the Council on third reading at 
a session of the Council held at Fort George in New 
York, the first day of July, I7i5,t and passed by the 
General Assembly on the third reading,| July 5, 17 15. 

An order was issued by Governor Hunter in ac- 
cordance with this Act, August 18, 171 5, calling on 
the various officers for a muster roll of the several 
companies. (This company was from Shawangunk.)§ 

Captain Nicholas Hoffman commanded a company 
(Second) of the Ulster County Regiment at Kings- 
towne in 1717, his commission being signed by Gen- 
eral Hunter, and dated October 3, 1717.^

con of the Reformed Dutch Church in Kingston, 
and in this capacity signed the petition for a charter 
for this church, which was obtained from George I, 
November 17, 17 19, and signed by Peter Stuyv^esant, 
President of the Council. This charter was granted 
to the Minister, Elders, and Deacons of the Reformed 
Dutch Church of Kingston, and confirmed their title 
to the grounds and cemetery on which the present 
church stands. 

Nicholas Hoffman married in the Reformed Dutch 
Church, at Kingston, Jannetje (Anatio) Crispell (some- 
times spelled Crispel, Crupel, Cropel, Chrispel, Kis- 
pel, Kruppel, Krippel, and Kapel). The banns were 
first published December 30, 1704. She was born at 
Horley (Hurley), February, 1686, and was baptized 
in Kingston Church, February 7, 1686. She was 
the daughter of Antonie Crispell,* a Huguenot who 
settled in this region and was one of the Patentees 
of New Paltz, Ulster County, N. Y. Holgate says, 
in his " American Genealogy": "By this marriage 
Nicolaes Hoffman transmitted some of the best blood 
of France in the veins of his descendants." 

Nicolaes Hoffman and Jannetje Crispell had nine 
children : 

15 Martinus, born 1706/7; mar. i. Tryntje Benson. 

ii. Alida (Livingston) Hansen.

February 6, 1 706/7, was baptized at Kingston, 
March 17, 1706/7; sponsors, Ryer (Zachariah ?) 
Hofman and Catie Hofman. 

He removed from the neighborhood of Kingston 
to Dutchess County, and settled, as did several of 
his brothers, near Red Hook, on the east side of 
the Hudson, upon land purchased by his father. 
Holgate says : " It is from Martinus Hofifman and 
his brothers that the branch of the family in New- 
York has descended. This branch has become 
affluent and highly distinguished for literary attain- 
ments."* Martin became occupied in the care of 
his property, farming and cultivating it, and estab- 
lished, under his father, the celebrated grist-mill 
which gave the name to that neighborhood, " Hoff- 
man's Mills." Martinus Hoffman was also a large 
purchaser of landed estate. On February 19, I755> 
he received, for the sum of nineteen hundred pounds 
sterling, a conveyance of land in Dutchess County, 
from Anthony Yelverton, consisting of "ten-elev- 
enths of a tract of land, mills, houses, gardens, or- 
chards, pastures, stones, woods, underwoods, wood- 
land, watercourses, streams, creeks and runs of 
water, falls, dams, mines and minerals." This is

at this time. The public records show that in 1748 
Martinus Hoffman was engaged in endeavoring to 
conciliate the Indians in Dutchess County ; and, 
on April 15, 1767, a petition was presented to the 
Government by native Indians, claiming lands . . . 
" from a place called Waunaukarmackack, a little 
South of where Colonel Hoffman now lives and 
Eastward of the Hudson."* 

Martinus Hoffman was appointed Justice of the 
Peace for Dutchess County in 1750. He was in 
175 1 " one of His Majesty's Judges for His Majesty's 
Court of Common Pleas for the County of Dutch- 
ess," and as such took depositions, several of which 
are recorded in the County Clerk's Office at Pough- 
keepsie. In 1755, when an official list of negro 
slaves " in Zacharias Hoffman's district, Dutchess 
Co.," was made. Col. Martinus Hoffman owned ten 
slaves, the largest number held by any one person 
in Rhinebeck Precinct, " and he was a man of large 
property and influence." f 

" A large portion of the land about what is now 
known as Tivoli was owned by the Hoffmans, a 
quite prominent family here something more than 
a century ago, who purchased a portion of the 
Schuyler Patent, which had just lapsed. 

" One of this family had for those times a very 
fine and spacious stone dwelling, of which not a ves- 
tige now remains. This mansion stood in a grove 
of locust trees at the extreme point of the domain

are still to be seen vestiges of the dock belonging 
to the first freighting establishment at what is now 
Tivoli, and which was then the property of the 
Hoffman family. On the old map of those days 
this point is known as * Hoffman's Ferry.' " * 

"A clothing and grist mill formerly occupied the 
site of the present grist mill East of Madalin. Above 
this is a mill, now in ruins, known as Hoffman's 
Mill, which has been occupied from time immemo-

" About a mile north east of Madalin years ago 
stood an old Red Dutch Church belonging to the 
Dutch Reformed Society." t 

Martinus Hoffman was one of the original mem- 
bers of the Old Red Church near Madalin, the 
ground for which was given by his brother Zacha- 
rias, and which was consecrated October 5, 1766, 
on which day Martinus was received into member- 
ship " by certificate from the Church on the Flatts." 
His wife, Alida, joined this church, February 13, 
1767, " by letter." On the opening of the new 
church, seats were sold to the members, the Hoff- 
man family purchasing as follows : 

" Zachariah Hoffman, 8 places, twelve shillings.

" Martinus Hoffman, 8 places, twelve shillings. 

" Nicholas Hoffman, 5 places, five shillings. 

" The burial ground, in which were interred some 
of the members of the Hoffman family, was on a 
sand bluff overlooking Tivoli Landing, back of 
the Farmers' Hotel, and now a portion of the es- 
tate of Col. Johnston L. De Peyster. This is the 
oldest graveyard in this section of the country, and 
in it there has been no recorded or remembered 
interment within the present century. 

" One of the oldest tombstones reads as follows : 

" * Here lies interred the Body of Tryntje Hoff- 
man, wife of Col. Martin Hoffman, who departed 
this Life March 31, 1765, in the 53 year of her 
age.'"* 

Martin Hoffman was twice married. He married,

"In 1766, John Vosburgh and Cornelia his wife,

dert, all of Rhinebeck Precinct, in Dutchess County, 
of the one part ; and Anthony Hoffman, of Kings- 
ton, Ulster County, and Zacharias Hoffman, of 
Rhinebeck, of the other part, agreed to divide a 
certain tract of land adjacent to the South of the 
Manor of Livingston, apparently belonging to both 
of them in common. 

" Either by this division, or at an earlier date, the 
Hoffmans became the owners of lands at the river 
above Tivoli, and about the Old Red Church, and 
the Hoffman Mills, north-east of Tivoli. They 
were Freighters, Store Keepers, and Millers before 
and after the Revolutionary War."*

Hook, to property originally belonging to his father, 
and to which he succeeded by inheritance under his 
father's will. He built upon this property a spa- 
cious and substantial stone mansion, which was 
known at that time as " Hoffman's Castle," and 
dwelt in it until his death. This house has been 
continuously occupied by the family, and is still in 
good preservation (1899). Zachariah Hoffman also 
purchased land in Rhinebeck Precinct. He was 
the owner of one of the "Hoffman's Mills"; and 
"Zacharias Hoffman's mill dam," " Zacharias Hoff- 
man's barn, farm, land, etc.," are frequently given 
as boundaries in the legal documents of his day. 

Zacharias Hoffman gave the ground for the Old 
Red Hook Dutch Church and burial-ground,* which 
is located near the south line of the Hoffman Pat- 
ent, t "A dispute once arose between Hoffman 
and Chancellor Livingston concerning this tract, 
both laying claim to it. A suit at law was held in 
the Old Dutch Church at Germantown. Alexander 
Hamilton argued the case for Hoffman, and the 
Chancellor pleaded his own cause. Hoffman was 
the victor."! 

The Red Hook Church, or, as it was afterwards 
called, the Red Church, for which Zacharias Hoff- 
man gave the ground, was consecrated October 5, 
1766, on which day the book of the Church Rec- 
ords was opened, and Zacharias Hoffman and his 
brother Martinus were enrolled among the first

members and pew-holders. Zacharias Hoffman 
became a Deacon of this Church, and always main- 
tained great interest in it. 

E. M. Smith, in his "History of Rhinebeck," 
gives the origin of the name " Red Hook " as fol- 
lows : " Hoek is the Dutch for 'corner,' and 'Red 
Hook' simply means 'Red Corner.' The corner 
occupied by Hoffman's Mill had its buildings 
painted red, and this, doubtless, was the origin of 
the name 'Red Hook.' In those days many of the 
farm buildings were unpainted, and when the Hoff- 
mans painted they used red. They were an im- 
portant family, and no doubt their corner was, in 
its day, an important one to the neighborhood." 
"Madalin was formerly known as Lower Red Hook, 
the Old Red Church, near Hoffman's Mills." 

Captain Zacharias Hoffman was in command of 
a Company and District in Dutchess County in 
1738, and in this connection his name appears in 
the English Manuscripts in the office of the Secre- 
tary of State at Albany. 

In 1775 he and his nephews, Nicolaes, Martin 
and Zacharias, were among the signers of the Pledge 
of the People of Rhinebeck, repudiating the British 
government. 

Zacharias Hoffman was twice married. He mar- 
ried, first, in the Reformed Dutch Church, New 
York, August 23, 1754, Helena Van Wyck (daugh- 
ter of Abraham Van Wyck and Catharina Provoost, 
bap. in Reformed Dutch Church, New York, July 
17, 1720?), by whom he had two children :

sponsors, Harmen and Maria Rutgers. 

She married (by license issued by the Secretary 
of the Province of New York) on July 18, 1768, in 
the Reformed Dutch Church at New York, the Rev. 
Archibald Laidlie, D. D. 

The Rev. Dr. Archibald Laidlie was a Scotch- 
man by birth, and had been in charge of a church 
at VHssingen, Holland, before he was called to be 
Pastor of the Reformed Dutch Church in New 
York. He was a very cultivated orator, and an 
earnest, devout and faithful minister. He was the 
first Reformed Dutch Minister in this country who 
preached in English. His health broke down in 
1776, and he and his wife "then concluded to re- 
move to the country with our little family, in hopes

the change of air might be of service to him." 
Here he Hngered for three years, and died in 1779. 

Mary (Hoffman) Laidlie is described as " a lady 
of great intellectual and moral worth. All ac- 
counts agree that her union with Archibald Laid- 
lie was a peculiarly happy one. She survived him 
forty-six years. Old and full of days, and ripe in 
the Christian graces, she died in the summer of 
1825. An affecting funeral discourse was pro- 
nounced in the Middle Dutch Church, June 12, 
1825, by her grandson, the Rev. Richard Varick 
Dey, the pastor of the church of Greenfield, Conn." 

Mary Hoffman and Archibald Laidlie had five

hood of Shawangunk, well stocked, and five colored 
servants. She and her husband continued to live 
at Shawangunk until 18 14, when they removed to 
a property owned by Selah Tuthill seven miles 
north of Newburg, on the banks of the Hudson. 
This property was called Danskammer, from a 
rocky point on which there is now a government 
lighthouse. This point was named by Hendrik 
Hudson "Des Teufels Danskammer," the Devil's 
Dancing Hall, because, according to the legend, 
he saw Indians dancing there and supposed them 
to be devils. The property comprised 430 acres, 
with a frontage of two miles along the west bank 
of the Hudson. Here Selah Tuthill and his family

Martin Hoffman died January 30, 1828, at his 
house, 691 Broadway, of an apoplectic fit, in his 
64th year. He was buried at St. Mark's Church, 
amidst many tokens of respect and grief. 

The following notice from the "Christian Jour- 
nal," written by his friend Bishop Hobart, bears 
testimony to the regard in which he was held : 

" It has become our melancholy duty to notice the death 
of Martin Hoffman, who died suddenly in this city on the 30th 
January, in the 64th year of his age. Rarely has a death oc- 
curred more keenly felt by a numerous circle of relatives and 
friends, or more sincerely lamented by the community of which 
he had so long been a member, than that of the subject of the 
present notice. 

" Throughout a long life of commercial pursuits, Mr. Hoff- 
man had sustained what in these days, so noted for reckless-

ness of character, cannot be too highly appreciated — an 
unblemished reputation for integrity. We consider this praise 
the more valuable because his had not been a uniformly pros- 
perous portion — he had had bitter and confirmed experience 
of those sudden reverses to which men of business are, in this 
country, more especially liable, and which, alas! too often 
leave behind them an indelible stain upon the character. With 
him it was different. Such was the confidence in his principles 
and exertions, that friends were always found ready to extricate 
him from his difficulties and enable him to continue efforts so 
honorable for him to make and for them to encourage. 

" Nor is it in matters of private interest only that his exam- 
ple deserves to be held up to view — in the cause of institutions 
of a benevolent nature, or whose object was the public benefit, 
he cheerfully contributed his time and the aid of a judgment 
which, aiming only at good, seldom mistook the means of 
effecting it. Of the Church to which he belonged at his death 
he was a warm and consistent friend; for more than thirty 
years had he taken a prominent part in the management of its 
concerns, and by the prudence of his counsels, as well as by 
his more active efforts, studied to advance its temporal inter- 
ests ; while by a regular attendance upon the services of the 
sanctuary and a devout participation in 'its holy mysteries' he 
evinced a corresponding regard for its spiritual welfare. 

" Of Mr. Hoffiuan in the relations of husband, father, friend, 
we would gladly, and we could feelingly, speak — but we for- 
bear. The anguish of the widow, orphans, and kindred of the 
deceased, and the sympathy of a whole community, declare 
more powerfully than words the number and the elevated char- 
acter of his private and domestic virtues." 

After his death Mrs. Hoffman and her young 
family went to live in Stratford, Connecticut. Later 
they removed to Goshen, N. Y., where she re- 



204 €j)e J^offttian ciBcnealogp 

mained until her death in 1861. One of her chil- 
dren thus records the sad event in the family- 
Bible : 

" Our mother fell asleep in Jesus, June 21, 1861, 
in our beautiful home, Green Hill, Goshen, New 
York, aged ']6 years and three months. Her son- 
in-law, the Rev. H. H. Bean, commended her dy- 
ing soul to our God in the Church prayers. Her 
end was perfect peace. True and lovely tributes 
to her almost faultless character appeared in the 
' Church Journal,' the ' Episcopal Recorder,' the 
* Goshen Democrat,' the ' Carrier Dove.' " * 

233 JosiAH OgdeN'^ (Martin', Nicolaes", Martinus^, 
Nicholas^), second child of Nicholas Hoffman (68) 
and Sarah Ogden, was born at Newark, N. J., 
April 14, 1766. 

He was admitted to the bar at an early age, 
and became a very distinguished lawyer. He 
was one of the most eminent members of the New 
York Bar at the time when Hamilton, Kent, Scott, 
Emmet, Wells, and other celebrated jurists also 
adorned it. His forte was the examination of 
witnesses and the management of juries. 

He was president of the Philological Society, 
and rode at the head of that society in the pro- 

* " Mrs. Hoffman was eminently qualified for bringing up a family wisely 
and well, as she possessed a sound understanding, a refined mind, and an 
earnest, well-regulated Christian character. To her influence may be 
traced the early manifestations of piety in her son, Cadwallader Colden, as 
well as the future development of decided Christian character in many of 
her other children." — "Spirit of Missions," Vol. XXXIII, p. 285.

Federal Constitution in New York in 1788. 

Shortly after Washington's inauguration, May 
12, 1789, the "Tammany Society," or "Colum- 
bian Order," was founded. It was named from 
the celebrated Indian chief, and was composed at 
first of the moderate men of both political parties, 
and appears not to have been recognized as a 
party institution until the time of President Jeffer- 
son. In 1 79 1 Josiah Ogden Hoffman was elected 
Grand Sachem. 

In 1 79 1-2, 1792-3, 1794-5 and 1797 he was 
Member of Assembly ; and in 1798 Attorney-Gen- 
eral of the State. In 1808 he was chosen Recorder 
of the City of New York, and continued in that 
office until 181 5. At the time of his death, in 
18 1 5, he was First Associate Judge of the Su- 
preme Court of New York. 

Josiah Ogden Hoffman was twice married. He 
married, first, on February 16, 1789, Mary, second 
daughter of David Colden, Esq., and his wife, 
Ann Willet of Coldenham, Orange County, N. Y.

Brunswick, N. J., where he owned a country-seat. 
He was a member of the Union League Club, but 
never took an active part in pohtics. He was a 
devout Churchman, and eminently charitable. He 
held the office of Vestryman in Trinity Church, 
New York, from 1878 up to his death ; and that ot 
Warden in Christ Church, New Brunswick, N. J., 
from 1845 to 1869. He was also for many years 
one of the most faithful members of the Board of 
Trustees of the General Theological Seminary and 
of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum. 

One who knew him well wrote of him after his 
death : 

" Through the long period of our intimacy, his vast business 
concerns, ever managed so well by himself, were the occasion 
of constant advice which he sought from me. In all these 
affairs I never knew him to be in the wrong. He had a scrupu- 
lous regard for the claims of others. His numerous lessees 
and tenants were never allowed to feel that they had been 
dealt with in any way unjust or illiberal. 

" Occasionally, though it was seldom, he was a party to litiga- 
tion, but he never lost a suit. He was always in the right, 
and had only to await the result of a case for his complete 
justification. He made many long leases of portions of his 
own and of Mrs. Hoffman's estates, but he never would allow 
a provision to be inserted that would seem onerous or ob- 
jectionable to a lessee. He would rather suffer the risk of be- 
ing wronged, than that any one dealing with him should feel 
aggrieved. His Christian principles triumphed over every un- 
worthy, selfish interest, and strict integrity characterized all 
his conduct. 

" His enlightened conscientiousness was another prominent 



5Fiftlj <tB»0ncratton 221 



feature of his character. He had a clear-sighted view of what 
was morally right and manful, and ever lived up to his convictions. 

" He was the most careful of any business man I ever knew 
respecting solemn asseverations. He would not make an affi- 
davit or verify a pleading until every sentence was carefully 
weighed and strictly worded. He reminded me of the advice 
of a Roman sage : ' Swear not at all ; if you must do it, do it 
as little as you can.' This trait seems to me to shine the purer 
and brighter from the contrast with the flippant manner in 
which oaths are so often taken. 

" I think no one surpassed him in kindness, mildness, and 
gentlemanly demeanor; yet he combined those qualities with 
positive expressions of his own sound judgment on all affairs. 
He would so utter his own opinions as not to offend any who 
had different views. He would reason without giving offence. 

" I suppose such traits are to be attributed chiefly to his spir- 
itual knowledge and Christian principles. He was one of 
those who sought instruction from the pure Fountain, and he 
ever honored his high vocation of a Christian gentleman. 
Since the earth has fallen on him, I have thought how much 
he will be missed from his home of peace and affection, and 
from the circles of friendship where he was so much loved." 

He married, on April 15, 1828, Glorvina Ros- 
sell Storm,* daughter of Garrit Storm and Susan 
Gouverneur.t She was born July 21, 1808, and 
died in New York, February 18, 1888.

516 Cadwallader Golden" (Martin^ Nicolaes-, Mar- 
tinus^ Nicholas"*, Martin'^), tenth child of Martin 
Hoffman (232) and Mary Frances Seton, was born 
in New York, December 15, 1819. " He was distin- 
guished in childhood by his great amiability, gen- 
tleness of disposition, and tender consideration for 
the feelings of others. When only sixteen years 
of age he was removed from school and placed in 
the office of his half-brothers, Messrs. L. M. Hoff- 
man & Co. He had a happy home with his half- 
brother Martin Hoffman, and the benefit of the 
counsels and example of his pious sister-in-law. 
He became a teacher in the Sunday-school at- 
tached to the Church of the Ascension (then in 
Canal Street, under the rectorship of the Rev. Mr., 
afterwards Bishop, Eastburn). The male teachers 
were, for the most part, young merchants and 
lawyers, and associated with Colden Hoffman 
were Van Rensselaer, Freeman, Clarkson, Titus, 
Parker, Newman, and others."* 

In August, 1839, Colden Hoffman made up his 
mind to study for the ministry, but it was not un- 
til the autumn of 1845 that he began his theo- 
logical studies in the Theological Seminary at 
Alexandria, Virginia. While there he came to

the firm decision to devote himself to the work of 
missions in Africa; and though strongly opposed 
by his family, was accepted by the Board of Mis- 
sions, and was ordained by Bishop Alonzo Potter, 
in St. Paul's Church, Philadelphia, July 30, 1848. 
Some time before he graduated from the Theo- 
logical Seminary, he had made the acquaintance, 
in Norfolk, of a young lady. Miss Virginia Haviside 
Hale, to whom he became deeply attached. Her 
guardian, however, positively refused his consent to 
her marrying and going out as a missionary's wife 
to Africa ; so he went out alone, sailing February 
24, 1849, for Cape Palmas. He spent twelve 
months in Africa, passed through the acclimating 
fever, commenced the study of the Grebo lan- 
guage, and preached to the natives with the aid 
of an interpreter, and thus prepared himself for 
future work, when it was considered expedient 
that he should pay a short visit to America. 

The result of his visit to Norfolk, Va., was the re- 
moval of the impediments to his marriage to Miss 
Hale, which took place on September 5, 1850. She 
was born October 14, 1832, and had, two years be- 
fore her marriage, determined to devote her life to 
missionary work in West Africa. During his visit to 
America, Colden Hoffman raised money for build- 
ing a new church at Cavalla, and stirred up a mis- 
sionary spirit in the parishes in New England. 
He sailed again for Africa with his wife in the 
autumn of 1850. She was a great support and 
help to him in his trying duties ; she threw her 
18 



2 74 €fjc i^ofBman <(5eiicalo0p 

whole soul into the mission work, studied the 
Grebo language, superintended the schools, and 
taught the children. In 1853 they were compelled 
by illness to return to the United States, but went 
back to their work in 1854, with restored health. 

Five and a half years afterwards Golden Hoffman 
was called on to part with her whom he so ten- 
derly loved, and who had been such a devoted 
wife and earnest fellow-laborer. In October, 1855, 
she caught a severe cold, which developed into 
consumption, and she died on Easter Day, March 
23, 1856. They had one child : 

882 Kate Seton, born at Cape Palmas, July 4, 1853. She was 

baptized by her father, October 9, 1853, and died Feb- 
ruary I, 1856. 

The Rev. Golden Hoffman remained at his post, 
plunging into his work with greater determination 
and self-sacrifice than ever, and was blessed in seeing 
great fruits of his work, this year of his domestic 
losses and severe bereavements being one of the 
greatest prosperity and progress the mission had 
ever experienced. 

In 1858 he married Miss Garoline Hogan, who 
had for several years been an earnest missionary 
at Cape Palmas, and with her cooperation and 
encouragement labored on with renewed energy 
in the missionary field. They made a voyage to 
America, via England, in 1859, and again in 1863. 
They had two daughters :

884 Caroline Golden, born July 28, 1864; baptized at Cape 
Palmas, August 14, 1864. She lives, 1899, in Phila- 
delphia. 

Never sparing himself in the discharge of his 
duties, Golden Hoffman continued the work of an 
evangelist among the heathen tribes around Gape 
Palmas and sixty miles to the interior, making no 
complaints of the hardships endured or the physi- 
cal suffering entailed by traversing tangled forests, 
navigating rivers in miserable canoes, sleeping on 
earthen floors in small smoky huts, with often the 
poorest fare, preaching in towns of small huts, 
under a tropical sun, pent up by fences from the 
breeze, and surrounded by noisy men, women and 
children. Sometimes after returning from his 
journeys — much of them made on foot — his feet 
were so bhstered that he could scarcely put them 
to the ground, and his body was so wearied that 
it was not until after bathing and oiling for several 
days that he was restored to comparative comfort. 
His health was broken by the constant toil and ex- 
posure, and on his return from one of his monthly 
visits to a distant mission station, he was taken ill and 
died at the Orphan Asylum, Gape Palmas, Novem- 
ber 25, 1865. "No wonder that when such a good 
man died five hundred Christians — missionaries, 
Liberian and native ministers, catechists and con- 
verts — should follow him in tears to his grave, as 
their best benefactor, devoted pastor, most earnest 
and successful missionary, a very 'Barnabas' to 
Africa and the Africans."

His death was deeply mourned both in the 
mission field and in the church at home, one rec- 
tor in Philadelphia, amongst many others who de- 
plored his loss, speaking of " the crushing blow 
we have received in the loss of the loving, gentle, 
gifted, earnest and intensely spiritual and devoted 
Hoffman. One of the best men the earth con- 
tained has been taken away." His widow decided 
to remain at Cape Palmas, where she continued at 
at the head of the Orphan Asylum for several 
years. When she returned to America, she ap- 
plied herself to establishing in West Philadelphia 
a home for the children of missionaries. She died 
February 14, 1876.

518 Ann*' (Martin\ Nicolaes', Martinus^ Nicholas^ Jo-

man (233) and Mary Colden, was born in 1790. 
She married Charles Nicholas, of Philadelphia, 
and had two daughters : 

8gi Matilda Nicholas, born 18 — ; mar. Whitman ot 

Kansas. 
892 Emma Nicholas, born 18 — ; mar. Maloney. 

519 Matilda" (Martin^ Nicolaes", Martinus^ Nicholas^, 

Josiah Ogden"), second child of Josiah Ogden 
Hoffman (233) and Mary Colden, was born No- 
vember 8, 1 79 1. She was engaged to be married 
to Washington Irving, but she died April 25, 
1809, in her eighteenth year, leaving him incon- 
solable. An article on Washington Irving, by 
M. A. De Wolfe Howe, published in 1897, says: 
" When Irving was at work upon the last part of

the Knickerbocker History, the great sorrow of 
his hfe befell him. Miss Matilda Hoffman, to 
whom he was engaged to be married, died after 
a brief illness. This sorrow, though it did not rob 
him of the courage to finish his humorous produc- 
tion, drove him for a time from all society, and 
made an impression upon his spirit which his whole 
subsequent life of activity never quite removed. 
When he died, an old man, a lock to which he 
had himself always kept the key, was found to 
guard a braid of hair and ^a beautiful miniature, 
with a slip of paper marked in his own handwrit- 
ing, 'Matilda Hoffman.' No less faithfully had 
he kept her Bible and Prayer Book throughout 
his life. Who shall say that the cherishing of 
such a memory as this did not find its direct ex- 
pression in the gentle chivalry with which he bore 
himself towards all women as a writer and as a 
man ? " 

520 Mary Colden*^ (Martin^ Nicolaes^ Martinus^ 
Nicholas^ Josiah Ogden''), third child of Josiah 
Ogden Hoffman (233) and Mary Golden, was 
born June 15, 1796. She was married, De- 
cember 22, 1814, in New York, by the Rev. Mr. 
Harrison, to Philip Rhinelander (born in New 
York, April 14, 1788), son of William Rhinelander 
and Mary Roberts. By him she had two children : 

893 Philip Rhinelander, born in New York, December, 181 5. 
He died, unmarried, in Vienna, Austria, August 11,

1839, and was buried in New York in the Rhinelander 
vault in St. Paul's Churchyard. 
894 Mary Golden Rhinelander, born 1818; mar. John Alsop 
King. 

Mary Golden (Hoffman) Rhinelander died at 
Elm Lake, Hamilton County, N. Y., September 
7, 18 1 8, aged twenty-two years. Her husband 
died February 27, 1830. 

521 Ogden" (Martin^ Nicolaes-, Martinus^ Nicholas^ 
Josiah Ogden'^), fourth child of Josiah Ogden 
Hoffman (233) and Mary Golden, was born Octo- 
ber 13, 1794. He graduated from Columbia Col- 
lege in 18 1 2, and was intended for the bar, but 
his father permitted him to join the Navy. He 
was appointed Midshipman, and on December 
31, 1 8 14, was taken prisoner with Capt. Decatur 
on the Presidetit. In 18 15 he served under 
Capt. Decatur in the war with the Barbary States. 
In 1 8 16 he resigned his commission, and began 
the study of law with his father, completing it with 
a lawyer in Goshen, whose partner he became. 
The young midshipman displayed courage and 
presence of mind on several trying occasions, and 
was a favorite with his commanding officer, Capt. 
Decatur, who, when Hoffman left the navy, ex- 
pressed regret that he should have " exchanged 
an honorable profession for that of a lawyer." 

He was appointed District Attorney of Orange 
County, and in 1825 was elected by the Demo- 



28o €f)c i^offitian <i3cncalogp 

cratic party to the Legislature. At the close 
of his term in 1826 he went to New York City, 
and became a partner with Hugh Maxwell, then 
District Attorney. When President Jackson 
removed the deposits from the United States 
Bank, he joined the Whig party. In 1828 he was 
elected a member of the State Assembly, where, 
as a member of the Judiciary, he suggested vari- 
ous improvements in practical procedure. He 
succeeded Maxwell as District Attorney in 1829, 
and held the office for six years. During twenty- 
five years he was counsel in almost every noted 
criminal trial in New York, and in many important 
civil cases. In 1836 he was elected a member of 
Congress, and served on the Committee on For- 
eign Affairs, taking a prominent part in debates. 
He was reelected in 1838, and at the conclusion 
of his second term was appointed by President 
W. H. Harrison United States District Attorney 
at New York. This office he resigned in 1845. 
In 1853 to 1855 he was Attorney-General of the 
State of New York. 

He was one of those distinguished gentlemen 
who gave the celebrated dinner in commemoration 
of the return of Washington Irving, May 30, 1832, 
at the City Hotel in Broadway. 

"In 1838 the 'Kane Club' was founded in the 
City of New York, which uniquely represented 
the cream and talent of the New York Bar. Its 
membership included such legal lions as Francis 
B. Cutting, Peter Augustus Jay, Charles O'Conor, 



^ixt^ (feneration 281 

and Ogden Hoffman, the latter a dreamy-eyed 
man, whose learning was profound and fervid elo- 
quence historical. Ogden Hoffman was one of the 
founders of the Union Club in 1836. The Union 
Club represented the old families — the Livingstons, 
Van Cortlandts, Van Rensselaers, Schuylers, Suy- 
dams, Griswolds, Stuyvesants, and others of simi- 
lar pedigree — their names filling up the list of 
membership with a sort of aristocratic monotony." 

Speaking of Ogden Hoffman and his half-brother, 
Charles Fenno, Martha Lamb says : " The bro- 
thers were both men of charming social qualities 
and chivalrous personal character." 

Ogden Hoffman was twice married. He mar- 
ried, first, on June 27, 18 19, Emily, daughter of 
Charles Burrall, by whom he had two sons : 

895 Charles Burrall, born 182 1 ; mar. Harriet Willett. 
8g6 Ogden, born 1823. 

He married, secondly, Virginia E. Southard, 
daughter of the Hon. Samuel Lewis Southard, of 
New Jersey, by whom he had three children : 

897 Samuel Southard, born 1839; mar. Sarah Acklen. 

898 Mary Golden, born October, 1840. She resides, 1899, in 

London. 

899 Virginia Southard, born November, 1842. She resides, 

1899, with her sister in London. 

Ogden Hoffman died in New York, May i, 
1856.

522 Charles Fenno" (Martin^ Nicolaes^ Martinus^ 
Nicholas^ Josiah Ogden'^), eldest child of Josiah 
Ogden Hoffman (233) and Maria Fenno, was born 
in New York City, February 7, 1806. He was 
sent to an academy in Poughkeepsie at the age of 
nine, and ran away to escape harsh treatment. 
He was then placed under the tuition of a Scotch 
clergyman in New Jersey. In 18 17 his leg was 
crushed between a ferry-boat and the wharf, ne- 
cessitating amputation. Notwithstanding the loss 
of this limb, he became proficient in athletic exer- 
cises. He entered Columbia College, but left be- 
fore graduation, and studied law with Harmanus 
Bleecker in Albany, at the same time contributing 
articles to the newspapers. He was admitted to 
the bar at the age of twenty-one, and practised 
for three years, when he resolved to adopt litera- 
ture as a profession, and joined Charles King in 
the editorship of the " New York American," to 
which he had previously been a contributor. In 
1832 he established the "Knickerbocker Maga- 
zine," of which he edited several numbers, and then 
transferred it to Timothy Flint, himself becom- 
ing proprietor of the " American Monthly Maga- 
zine" and the "New York Mirror." 

In 1833 he went to the West for the benefit of 
his health, and in 1835 published a series of letters 
recording his experiences, entitled " A Winter in 
the West," in two volumes. In 1837 1''^ published 
" Wild Scenes in the Forest and the Prairie," in 
two volumes, and in 1840, his only novel, "Greys-

laer," appeared. In 1842 his lyrics were published 
in a volume entitled " The Vigil of Faith, and 
Other Poems"; and in 1844 "The Echo, or Bor- 
rowed Notes for Home Circulation," a second 
volume of poetry. "Love's Calendar, and Other 
Poems " (New York, 1848), is a more complete 
collection of his lyrics. In 1847-48 he edited 
"The Literary World," and after leaving that 
journal, contributed to it a number of essays and 
stories, entitled "Sketches of Society." A later 
edition of his poems, edited by his nephew, Ed- 
ward Fenno Hoffman, was published in 1874. 

He is spoken of as " perhaps the most generally 
admired of the group of Knickerbocker authors 
who flourished in his native city something less 
than half a century ago, and of which he was the 
last survivor. As a song-writer he stands among 
Americans second only to Morris, and some writ- 
ers have asserted that his lyric of ' Sparkling and 
Bright ' is unsurpassed by any similar production 
in the language. No American martial poem pro- 
duced even during the War of the Rebellion sur- 
passed Hoffman's spirited lines in his stanzas on 
the Mexican battle of Monterey, which enjoyed 
the distinction of being admired by both Grant 
and Sherman."* 

He possessed fine social qualities, conversational 
powers of a high order, taste, scholarship, and a 
chivalrous personal character, which made him 
a favorite with all. Although not a graduate of

Columbia College, he received, at the semi-centen- 
nial of its incorporation, the honorary degree of 
A. M., conferred on him in company with Wash- 
ington Irving, Fitz-Greene Halleck, and William 
Cullen Bryant. 

While filling a Government position at Washing- 
ton, he was attacked in 1850 by a mental disorder, 
from which he never recovered. He spent the 
remainder of his life at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 
where he died June 7, 1884. 



523 George Edward'' (Martin^ Nicolaes-, Martinus^

Children of Samuel Verplanck Hoffman (259) and 
Qlorvina R. Storm. 

601 Eugene Augustus*^ (Martin^ Nicolaes", Martinus^ 
Harmanus^, Samuel Verplanck'^), eldest child of 
Samuel Verplanck Hoffman (259) and Glorvina 
Rossell Storm, was born in New York City, March 
21, 1829. His father was in business in Pine 
Street, and the family lived in White Street, a 
fashionable quarter of the city at that date, when 
there were few of the better class of residences 
above Canal Street, and the old Broadway stages 
ran only as far as Bond Street. His early edu- 
cation was begun in Mr. Greenough's then well- 
known school in Varick Street, on leaving which 
he and his brother Charles entered the Columbia 
Grammar School, under the tuition of Drs. Charles 
Anthon and Henry Drisler. The family having 
removed to New Brunswick, N. J., in 1842, Eu- 



304 €f|c ipoffman ^encalogp 



gene entered Rutgers College the following year, 
and was graduated in 1847, ^^ the early age of 
eighteen. Desiring to pursue his studies still fur- 
ther, he entered Harvard University, receiving from 
that institution the degrees of B. A. and M. A. in 
1848 and 1 85 I respectively. During the summer 
of 1848 he joined a party of sixteen persons under 
Professor Louis Agassiz, some of whom were sent 
out by the German Universities and the Jardin 
des Plantes, Paris, to explore the then unbroken 
wilderness lying north of Lake Superior. The 
party was for nearly three months beyond the 
limits of civilization, some of them coming back 
to Sault Ste. Marie by the south shore and mak- 
ing the complete circuit of that great lake in frail 
birch canoes. After returning from that expedition, 
Eugene A. Hoffman entered the General Theologi- 
cal Seminary in New York, of which he is now 
the honored head, to begin his preparation for the 
ministry of the Protestant Episcopal Church. 

He was graduated from that institution in 185 1, 
and ordered deacon in Christ Church, New Bruns- 
wick, by the Right Rev. George Washington 
Doane, Bishop of New Jersey, in the same year. 
For two years he was diligently engaged in mis- 
sion work in Grace Church, Elizabethport, N. J. 
In the spring of 1853 he accepted a call to the 
rectorship of Christ Church, Elizabeth, N. J., then 
just organized, and was admitted to the priesthood 
by Bishop Doane in St. John's Church, Elizabeth. 
For ten years he remained in this parish, where he 



ri^irtl) oBcncmtion 305 



established one of the earhest and most successful 
free churches in this country. A large stone 
chapel, afterwards enlarged and converted into 
the church building, a parish school-house and a 
stone rectory were built. This church was among 
the first in this country to have daily morning 
and evening prayers and the weekly communion, 
none of which have ever been intermitted since 
the chapel was erected. Dr. Hoffman also organ- 
ized two parish schools, — a classical school for 
boys, and a primary school for girls, — which were 
highly successful. During the ten years of his 
rectorship the congregation, worshiping in a chapel 
seating but three hundred people, and none of 
them rich in this world's goods, contributed, through 
the Sunday offerings, upward of fifty thousand 
dollars. 

During this period Dr. Hoffman also gathered a 
congregation in Milburn, N. J., seven miles dis- 
tant, by holding a third service there on Sundays ; 
organized a parish, and built St. Stephen's Church, 
seating nearly five hundred persons. This accom- 
pHshed, he turned his attention to Woodbridge, 
some ten miles from Elizabeth, where there stood 
an ante-Revolution church, for years without 
a congregation. This ancient edifice took fire 
on the second occasion of its being re-opened, and 
was entirely consumed. Nothing daunted by this 
disaster, the services were continued in the Pres- 
byterian Church, kindly loaned for the purpose, a 
congregation gathered, and a brick church erected 



3o6 Cjjc Ipoffinan oBciicalogji 



on the site of the one that was burnt, surrounded 
by the graves of nearly two centuries. At the 
same time Dr. Hoffman's sympathies were en- 
listed in behalf of St. James's Church, Hacketts- 
town, N. J., which was heavily in debt and had 
fallen into the hands of the sheriff. By personal 
efforts he secured sufficient to pay the debt, 
and presented the church, free and clear, to the 
diocese. 

In the spring of 1863, at Bishop Odenheimer's 
earnest solicitation, he accepted the rectorship of 
St. Mary's Church, Burlington, N. J. This par- 
ish was at that time encumbered with a debt of 
twenty-three thousand dollars, and had not suffi- 
cient income to meet the annual interest on the 
indebtedness. With his characteristic financial 
ability, he immediately grappled with this diffi- 
culty, and in less than one year, notwithstanding 
that the country was at that time engaged in a 
terrible war, he had the satisfaction of wiping out 
the entire debt and raising sufficient to place a 
large peal of bells in the church tower, with an 
endowment for the ringers. 

During his connection with New Jersey, Dr. 
Hoffman held numerous positions of trust : he was 
Secretary of the Standing Committee of the Dio- 
cese; Secretary of the Diocesan Convention ; Trus- 
tee of Burlington College and St. Mary's Hall ; and 
for many years a trusted adviser of Bishop Doane 
during his trials. 

In 1864 Dr. Hoffman became Rector of the 



Mxt\^ (feneration 307 



large and important parish of Grace Church, 
Brooklyn Heights. To his exertions was due the 
erection of the fine parish building which adjoins 
the church on the west. During his rectorship the 
parish attained the highest degree of prosperity, 
and the liberal system of large annual offerings 
for missions, for which it is still so notably distin- 
guished, was inaugurated. In this church the meet- 
ing was held which decided the erection of the 
Diocese of Long Island. When the diocese was 
organized he was prominently mentioned for its 
bishop, and was elected the President of its Stand- 
ing Committee. He was one of the active trustees 
of the Church Charity Foundation. 

The keen air of Brooklyn Heights seriously 
affecting his health, he resigned the rectorship in 
1869, and accepted a call to be rector of St. 
Mark's Church, Philadelphia, Pa., leaving Brooklyn 
amidst many regrets and expressions of respect 
and affection. For St. Mark's parish he imme- 
diately secured a large and commodious rectory, 
and within a year organized the first Working- 
men's Club in this country. Its methods of oper- 
ation proved so successful that it soon numbered 
five hundred members, and furnished the pattern 
for numerous similar clubs now existing in all parts 
of the country. Finding it impossible, owing to 
the crowded congregations, to provide seats in 
the parish church for many of the laboring classes, 
he opened the church for free services every Sun- 
day evening, at each of which the sacred edifice 



3o8 ^jjc Ipoffimn <iBcncalo0p 

was filled to its utmost capacity. During his rec- 
torship many costly improvements were made in 
the church building, a number of the windows 
were filled with rich English painted glass as me- 
morials, and a fine peal of English bells was hung 
in the tower. When he resigned, after ten years 
of faithful service, it was found that the number of 
communicants had increased from four hundred 
to one thousand, and that the offerings had aver- 
aged about forty-four thousand dollars a year ; 
seven hundred and seventy-six persons had been 
baptized, and four hundred and forty-six presented 
to the Bishop for confirmation. Never before had 
the real power of St. Mark's parish been so called 
into service or its liberality been so developed. 

Dr. Hoffman was an active worker in the Boards 
of Trustees of all the diocesan institutions — the 
large Episcopal Hospital, the Episcopal Academy, 
the Diocesan and City Missions, the Prayer Book 
and Tract Societies. In all these positions he was 
noted for his untiring industry, his good judgment, 
and his financial ability. A prominent financier 
remarked that, in making him a clergyman they had 
spoiled a first-class bank president. Others were 
wont to call him (playing upon his initials, E. A. H.) 
Executive Ability Hoffman. When he left Phila- 
delphia for another field of labor, the Bishop of 
Pennsylvania, the Rt. Rev. Wm. Bacon Stevens, 
though differing materially from his school of 
churchmanship, sent him a most compHmentary 
letter of appreciation of his services and regret 
at his departure. 




THE VERY REV. EUGENE AUGUSTUS HOFFMAN, D. D. 

Dean of the General Theological Seminary. 



^ixt^ (feneration 309 



It had long been felt by those who watched his 
work in Philadelphia that Dr. Hoffman ought to 
have a more extended sphere of usefulness. Sev- 
eral times his name was suggested for a bishopric. 
But providentially he was reserved for the eminent 
position which he now so successfully fills, and 
where he has left a permanent monument of his 
work as Dean of the General Theological Seminary 
of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United 
States. His election to this responsible position, 
after twice decHning to allow himself to be nom- 
inated for the post, gave great satisfaction to the 
Church, and his acceptance of it was warmly 
urged by prominent bishops, and such men as 
Drs. Dix, Dyer and John Cotton Smith. They 
felt confident that under his administration the 
Seminary, which had been dragging along with- 
out sufficient endowment and with a steadily in- 
creasing debt, would be established on a firm 
financial basis, and take its stand in the forefront 
of the Church's work in America. 

Their anticipations have been more than real- 
ized. During the twenty years which have 
elapsed since he became the head of the institu- 
tion, more than a million and a half of dollars have 
been secured to the Seminary by his efforts and 
by the munificence of himself and his family. The 
large block known as Chelsea Square, which was 
then occupied only by two old gray stone houses, 
has been more than half covered by a magnificent 
pile of buildings, which form the East Quadrangle, 
presenting an imposing front on Ninth Avenue, 



3 lo €ljc Jpofftiian <i5mcalogp 



and extending from the northwest corner of West 
Twentieth Street half way along West Twenty- 
first Street. These buildings include a spacious 
deanery ; five houses for the use of professors ; five 
halls, used as dormitories for the students, which 
are named after founders and benefactors of the 
Seminary ; Sherred Hall, containing lecture-rooms 
for the different professors ; Hobart Hall, the fire- 
proof library building; and the beautiful Memo- 
rial Chapel of the Good Shepherd, erected by the 
mother of the Dean in memory of her husband, 
Samuel Verplanck Hoffman. A new set of dor- 
mitories, to be called "Eigenbrodt Hall," is now 
in course of erection, and also a large building, 
which will provide a spacious dining-hall and gym- 
nasium. The Alumni of the Seminary have named 
the latter building "Hoffman Hall," as a memo- 
rial to Dean Hoffman, and the cost of its erection 
will be defrayed by funds collected by them for 
the purpose. 

During Dean Hoffman's tenure of office two new 
professorships have been established, and three pro- 
fessorships have been amply endowed by himself 
and his family, as has also the office of Dean, the 
income of which is for the present accumulating 
for the benefit of the Seminary ; while funds have 
been contributed from various sources for perma- 
nent instructors in Church Music and Elocution, 
for the endowment of the " Bishop Paddock Lec- 
tureship," for fellowships and scholarships, and for 
various prizes. The grounds of the Seminary 



^ijct!) <©encration 3 1 1 



have been very greatly improved and beautified, 
and the trim, well-kept lawns, shady trees and ivy- 
covered buildings make Chelsea Square an oasis 
in the desert of brick and mortar well worthy a 
visit. 

In addition to his duties as Dean, Dr. Hofifman 
devotes considerable time to other general institu- 
tions of the Church, rarely being absent from the 
meetings of the Board of Managers of the Mission- 
ary Society, the Clergymen's Retiring Fund Soci- 
ety, the Society for Promoting Religion and Learn- 
ing, Trinity School, the Corporation for the Relief 
of Widows and Children of Clergymen, and the 
Cathedral of St. John the Divine, of the Building 
Committee of which he is Chairman. He has 
also represented the Diocese of New York in the 
last seven General Conventions, serving on sev- 
eral of its most important committees, and has 
been for the last seven years a member of the Com- 
mission appointed by the General Convention for 
the Revision of the Constitution and Canons of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church. He is a member of 
the Archaeological Institute of New York ; the 
American Geographical Society ; the New York 
Zoological Society ; the American Institute of 
Christian Philosophy ; the Metropolitan Museum 
of Art; the New York Genealogical and Biographi- 
cal Society ; the St. Nicholas Society ; the Hugue- 
not Society ; the New York Numismatic and 
Archaeological Society ; the New York Historical 
Society, of which he is also Foreign Corresponding 



3 1 2 z^t l^offman «^encaIogp 



Secretary ; and a Fellow of the American Museum 
of Natural History, to which he lately presented a 
very valuable representative collection of the but- 
terflies of America. He is a member of the Cen- 
tury Association, the Riding Club, and the City 
Club ; the South Side Sportsmen's Club, the 
Robins Island Club, the Jekyl Island Club, and 
the Ristigouche Salmon Club. 

He received the degree of Doctor in Divinity 
from Rutgers College in 1864, Racine College in 
1882, the General Theological Seminary in 1885, 
Columbia College in 1886, Trinity College, Hart- 
ford, in 1895, and the University of Oxford in 1896. 
The degree of D. C. L. was conferred on him by 
King's College, Windsor, Nova Scotia, in 1890; 
and that of LL. D., by the University of the South, 
Sewanee, Tenn., in 1891, and by Trinity Univer- 
sity, Toronto, Canada, in 1893. He is the author 
of "The Eucharistic Week," "The Legal Use of 
Church Bells," " The System of Free Churches," 
and various published sermons, addresses and 
magazine articles. 

Dean Hoffman and his brother, the Rev. Charles 
F. Hoffman, succeeded under the wills of their 
parents to a large estate, which they personally ad- 
minister. Both have been very generous men. 
While the General Theological Seminary is per- 
haps the object nearest the heart of Dean Hoffman, 
he gives largely, though unostentatiously, to many 
public and private charities. It has been written 
of him that " much of his generosity will never be 



Mtt^ ((Bctteration 3 1 3 



known to the world ; but many a needy student, 
many an impoverished gentlewoman, many a poor 
clergyman, many a struggling parish, could tell 
how their load has been lifted and their way made 
clear by his practical and ready help and his kindly 
sympathy and advice." 

Possessed of a fine physique. Dean Hoffman be- 
lieves in outdoor exercise, and is fond of all genu- 
ine sport, fishing, hunting, riding, etc. For his 
summer vacation he goes to the salmon streams 
and forests of Canada, and during the Christmas 
recess at the Seminary spends a couple of weeks 
at the Jekyl Island Club, off the coast of Georgia. 

Dean Hoffman was married at Christ Church, 
New Brunswick, N. J., on April 19, 1852, by the 
Rev. Alfred Stubbs, D. D., to Mary Crooke El- 
mendorf* (born March 15, 1829), daughter of Peter 
Zabriskie Elmendorf and Maria La Grange Van 
Vechten. They have had nine children :

The following description of the personal ap- 
pearance of Dr. Eugene A. Hoffman while Rector 
of Grace Church, Brooklyn Heights, N. Y., still 
serves to bring him before us in 1899, although 
thirty added years have changed his hair and beard 
to gray : 

" Dr. Hoffman is above the medium height, and of 
those equal proportions which are considered the 
most graceful in man. The characteristics of his 
countenance are those of intellect and amiability. 
You see that he is quick of thought and gentle of 
heart. When he talks there is a measure of reflec- 
tion in his manner, but it is equally clear that his 
convictions are rapid and at the same time likely 
to be reliable. His face has a natural habit of re- 
lapsing into a smile, and in conversation, while he 
seems busy with his thoughts, there are constant 
flashes of this brightness which overspread it. He 
has a full, clear eye, searching in its glance, it is 
true, but still soft and winning. His manners are 
frank, courteous, and every way polished, with a 
moderate amount of well-sustained dignity. He 
is a man who takes great enjoyment in his own 
domestic circle, and he is eminently social in 
other respects. 

" But it is readily seen that his mind and heart 
are never for a moment led away from his religious

work. All his duties are exactly and faithfully- 
performed ; no toil overtasks him ; no discourage- 
ments dishearten him ; and at all times and under 
all circumstances you find him the same ardent 
Christian. He is not only a deeply religious man, 
but conscientious and strict in his particular faith. 
The doctrines of his Church are at once his enthu- 
siasm and his hope, and his patient effort is to 
show in his own life their comfort and beauty. 

" Dr. Hoffman's sermons are eminently practical 
in their bearing. Being so much a person of sys- 
tem, judgment, and the immediate direction of all 
means to the end sought to be accomplished, he 
is not different in his style of writing. There is a 
warmth and grace about his words, and at times a 
polished and moving eloquence ; but the prominent 
and overshadowing peculiarity is a plain, forcible 
expression of common-sense views. His delivery 
is without much gesture, and in every way unas- 
suming. He has a strong and altogether pleasant 
voice. His earnest and uniformly successful labors 
have won him a conspicuous place among the 
Episcopal clergy. Without parade of his ability, 
and the most unobtrusive of men in advancing his 
own personal advantage, he is still careful that he 
is behind no man in willingness, devotion, and 
confidence in the line of Christian duty."

tinus^, Harmanus\ Samuel Verplanck''), second 
child of Samuel Verplanck Hoffman (259) and

Glorvina Rossell Storm, was born in New York 
City, November i8, 1830. He and his brother 
Eugene went to Mr. Greenough's in Varick 
Street, and from there to Cohimbia Grammar 
School. After finishing their course there, the 
two brothers were separated for the first time, 
Eugene going to Rutgers College, and Charles to 
Trinity College, Hartford, Conn., where he was 
graduated in 185 i with high honors. 

He was noted from early youth for his piety, and 
notwithstanding the fact that he knew that a large 
inheritance would be his some day, he followed 
the example of his elder brother, and deter- 
mined to devote himself to the work of preaching 
the Gospel. On leaving Trinity College, he en- 
tered the General Theological Seminary in New 
York, and after a course of training there, he 
was ordained deacon by the Rt. Rev. George 
Washington Doane, Bishop of New Jersey, on 
July 14, 1854. His first pastoral work was in 
missions. It was a branch of church work of 
which he was very fond, and his wealth enabled 
him to do much good in that chosen field. He 
was at first attached to the mission of the Protes- 
tant Episcopal Church at Boonton, N. J., where 
he remained several years, and left lasting re- 
minders of his charity and Christian zeal. He 
was ordained priest in 1855, and became curate 
of St. Mary's Church, Burlington, N. J., in which 
position he sustained his already wide reputation 
for the exercise of discriminating and beneficial 
charity. 



^vct^ <Daicration 3 1 7 



From Burlington he went to be rector of St. 
Philip's, Garrisons, N. Y., where he remained un- 
til 1874, when he accepted a call from the Church 
of All Angels, New York City. The edifice was 
then small and built of wood. The congregation 
was in keeping with the church, and the duties of 
the pastor were made the more onerous because 
of the lack of interest at that time shown in parish 
affairs. With the advent of the Rev. Dr. Hoffman, 
however, matters soon assumed a different aspect, 
and from the little dilapidated structure that did 
duty as a church twenty-three years ago there has 
sprung up one of the finest church edifices in New 
York City. It occupies the southeast corner of 
Eighty-first Street and West End Avenue, and 
commands a beautiful view of the Hudson and the 
Palisades. The cost of the structure, considerably 
over $150,000, was defrayed entirely by Dr. Hoff- 
man, and he also erected, in 1894, a large parish 
house at his own expense. The congregation grew 
with the church, and in the winter of 1896-97 it 
was found necessary to double the size of the 
building in order to accommodate it. The Rev. 
Dr. Hoffman purchased and presented to the con- 
gregation the necessary ground for the improve- 
ment, while they made the addition to the structure, 
which, in its complete condition, was occupied for 
the first time by the Rev. Dr. Hoffman less than 
two weeks before his death. As he looked over 
his congregation, with whom he had been asso- 
ciated for almost a quarter of a century, he seemed 
to feel a premonition that the time had come for 



him to lay down his work, and he told his hearers 
that it might be the last time he would officiate 
as their minister. His words were prophetic. The 
task he had put upon , himself was too great, and 
he succumbed to it. For many years he had 
added the cares of a most exacting business to 
his duties as a pastor, and the strain upon his 
physical strength had begun to tell. His family 
physician had warned him that it was absolutely 
necessary that he should take a vacation, but it 
was not until unmistakable indications of heart 
trouble, with other complications, set in, that he 
consented to abandon his work. Accompanied 
by some of his family and his physician, he left 
for Jekyl Island, Georgia; but the change did not 
benefit him, and he passed away on Thursday, 
March 4, 1897, just one week after his arrival at 
the Club House. 

His body was brought to New York for inter- 
ment, the funeral services being held in All An- 
gels' Church, with very impressive ceremony. 
The Rt. Rev. Wm. Croswell Doane, D. D., the 
Bishop of Albany, a lifelong friend, officiated at 
the services. He was assisted by five represen- 
tative clergymen, heads of colleges, and others ; 
while the Faculty and students of the General 
Theological Seminary, and deputations from St. 
Stephen's College, Hobart College, the Univer- 
sity of the South, the Church Association for the 
Promotion of the Interests of Church Schools, 
Colleges and Seminaries, and many other organi-

zations, besides crowds of representative men, 
personal friends of Dr. Hoffman, attended to de- 
monstrate their respect and grief The interment 
took place in the family vault at Trinity Ceme- 
tery, New York. 

Dr. Charles F. Hoffman was in no sense a mere 
average minister. He was a deep student and 
thinker, and possessed the gift of expressing his 
convictions in a forceful, instructive, and enter- 
taining manner. In every circle of life in which 
he moved he was popular and respected. He 
was one of the most charitable of men ; but his 
charity was of an unostentatious character and a 
matter to which he rarely referred. Many of his 
bequests, however, were so important that they 
compelled attention. In the summer of 1896 he 
gave $40,000 to the University of the South ; to 
St. Stephen's College, Annandale, N. Y., he gave 
$100,000, and erected there a fire-proof library 
building and a dormitory. He also contributed 
liberally to the A. Toomer Porter Institute at 
Charleston, S. C, and to Hobart College, Geneva, 
N. Y. He erected Hoffman Hall, an institution 
for the education of negroes, at Nashville, Tenn., 
and Hoffman Hall of the Negro Orphan Asylum 
near Lynchburg, Va. The Episcopal Church of 
St. James, Elberon, N. J., has been much im- 
proved and amplified as a result of his kindly 
interest in its welfare. Among his other works 
of beneficence were the founding of a Greek pro- 
fessorship in St. Stephen's College; the partial 



320 €j)e J^offttian <^mea!o0p 



endowment of the office of Dean in the General 
Theological Seminary ; the endowment of an al- 
cove in St. John's Inn, a home for aged men at 
St. Johnland, L. I., and of beds in St. Luke's and 
other hospitals. He also founded the annual Hoff- 
man Library Lectureship at St. Stephen's College, 
Annandale. 

In 1894 he accepted the office of Vice-Chancel- 
lor of Hobart College, Geneva, N. Y., and in 1895 
was elected President of the Association for Pro- 
moting the Interests of Church Schools, Colleges 
and Seminaries in the United States. He was a 
Trustee of the General Theological Seminary, New 
York, and of Hobart and St. Stephen's Colleges ; 
Vice-President and patron of the Protestant Epis- 
copal Society for Seamen in New York, and life 
member of the American Authors' Guild, the New 
York Historical Society, the Charity Organization 
Society, the Protestant Episcopal Society for the 
Increase of the Ministry, and other societies. 

The Rev. Charles F. Hoffman possessed the de- 
grees of D. D., LL. D., and D. C. L. He was a 
voluminous writer on devotional subjects, particu- 
larly as to the necessity of conjoining religious and 
secular education. One writing of him a few days 
after his death, said : " Charles Frederick Hoffman 
was a member of a family whose name has been 
associated with American aristocracy, brains and 
wealth for more than a century. His death has a 
direct effect upon the religious, social and financial 
life of this city. Dr. Hoffman occupied a most 



^ijctl) feneration 321 



prominent position in all three circles. He was 
possessed of large wealth, and conducted his own 
real-estate business, as well as performing the full 
work which devolves upon a minister of the Gos- 
pel. ... Of a genial, kindly temperament, he was 
a great favorite with his parishioners, as well as 
with the denomination at large. Take him for all 
in all, New York may well lay a wreath of immor- 
telles on the bier of her Old Boy, who has this 
week been laid to rest." 

Charles Frederick Hoffman was married in Grace 
Church, Brooklyn Heights, September 12, 1854, 
by his brother, the Rev. Eugene A. Hoffman, Rec- 
tor of the parish, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Vinton, 
to Eleanor Louisa Vail, daughter of David M.

6i8 John Thompson" (Martin^ Nicolaes^ Martinus^ 
Philip Livingston'*, Adrian Kissam''), only son of 
Adrian Kissam Hoffman, M. D. (269), and Jane 
Ann Thompson, was born at Sing Sing, N. Y., 
January 10, 1828. He received a good educa- 
tion, and while still a boy obtained a reputation 
as a public speaker. He was first educated by 
the Rev. Dr. Prime, afterwards editor of the "New 
York Observer." When fifteen years of age, John 
T. Hoffman entered the sophomore class of Union 
College, Schenectady. This was in 1843, when 
Dr. Eliphalet Nott was president of that institu- 
tion. He was graduated with honor in 1846, and 
his oration on that occasion is said to have been 
especially noteworthy, his subject being, " Sec- 
tional Prejudices," a matter on which he was after- 
wards to become more completely informed. From 
the time he was a boy, young Hoffman adopted 
the cause of Democracy, and to the principles of 
that party he remained ever after steadfast. 

After leaving college he studied law with Gen- 
eral Ward and Judge Albert Lockwood at Sing 
Sing, He began his political career before he was 
twenty-one years of age. In the year 1848 he 
was made a member of the State Central Commit- 
tee by the Convention of the "Hard Shell Democ- 
racy." It was at this election that General Taylor 
carried the State by a plurality of 100,000, and 
Hamilton Fish was elected Governor, both on the 
Whig ticket, in face of the fact that the aggregate 
Democratic vote exceeded that of the Whigs. 



324 €j)e J^offman <i5mealo0p 

Although not then a voter, Mr. Hoffman delivered 
a number of campaign addresses, and did good ser- 
vice as a speaker for Lewis Cass. 

On January lo, 1849, his twenty-first birthday, 
John Thompson Hoffman was admitted to the bar, 
and in the autumn of that year he removed to 
New York, and formed a law partnership with 
Samuel M. Woodruff and Judge William M. Leon- 
ard, under the firm name of Woodruff, Leonard 
and Hoffman. For ten years thereafter he de- 
voted himself strictly, and with marked success, 
to the practice of his profession. In 1859 his 
name was put forward by some of the most promi- 
nent citizens of New York for the position of 
United States District Attorney, and the only ob- 
jection made to him by President Buchanan was 
on account of his youth. 

In i860 he was nominated and elected Recorder 
of the City of New York, being the youngest man 
who had ever filled the place. During his first 
term as Recorder, Mr. Hoffman laid the founda- 
tion for the splendid reputation which afterwards 
became his. It fell to his lot to try and to sen- 
tence many of those engaged in the famous riots 
of July, 1863. So highly was Recorder Hoffman 
respected, on account of his conduct in office, 
that the Republican Judiciary Convention, on 
October 12, 1863, named him for reelection. He 
was endorsed by both Tammany and Mozart 
Halls, while the press, regardless of party affilia- 
tions, sustained him, and he was again elected 



^ixtt\ (Bmtvmon 325 



Recorder by an almost unanimous vote. He re- 
ceived 60,000 out of 64,000 votes polled for that 
office, a record unparalleled in the history of the 
city up to that time. 

On November 21, 1865, John T. Hoffinan was 
nominated for the office of Mayor of the City ol 
New York by the Tammany Hall Democratic 
Convention. There were three candidates in the 
field besides Judge Hoffinan, they being Marshall 
O. Roberts, Republican ; John Hecker, nominated 
by the Citizens' Association ; and C. Godfrey 
Gunther, nominated by one wing of the Demo- 
cratic party. Judge Hoffinan was elected, re- 
ceiving about twelve hundred votes over the next 
highest candidate, who was Mr. Roberts. During 
his first term as Mayor he was nominated by the 
Democratic party for the governorship, but was 
defeated by Reuben E. Fenton. In 1867 he was 
renominated for the mayoralty by Tammany Hall, 
and was elected by a majority of 21,000 over both 
his competitors.* 

While holding the office of Mayor a second 
time he was again nominated for Governor of the 
State, and was elected by a very large majority. 
He resigned the mayoralty in 1868 to assume 
the higher office. In 1870 he was reelected to the 
governorship ; and thus in every office which he 
held he received the endorsement of the people 
for a second term.* 

A writer in 1871 says: "Scarcely at what is

called middle life, John T. Hoffman, after an 
honorable and successful professional career, has 
filled the highest judicial and municipal positions 
with ability and distinction, and now occupies the 
first and most exalted ofiice in the gift of the Peo- 
ple of New York. 

" Judging from the record of his past political 
and private life, the public have a guarantee of his 
future ability and fidelity in the discharge of his 
important trust. Arriving at the highest honors 
through a combination of political power more 
or less subject to suspicion, Governor Hoffman is 
a remarkable instance of a public man who has 
passed through all these ordeals with his honor 
unsullied and his integrity untarnished. Sur- 
rounded by temptations, both social and political, 
which have wrecked so many public men of prom- 
ise, and even those who have gained the full frui- 
tion of their hopes, Governor Hoffman stands an 
example of personal dignity in all the relations of 
Hfe." 

Governor Hoffman in his administration opposed 
with considerable success the numerous schemes 
of corruption and fraud which were brought to 
the Legislature, and which too often succeeded by 
some means in obtaining a majority of the votes. 
In three sessions of the Legislature he vetoed 
four hundred and two bills, mostly from a convic- 
tion of their fraudulent and injurious intent, or 
their liability to perversion for evil purposes. His 
vetoes were all sustained by the Legislature. His 



M^ixt^ "feneration 327 

exercise of the pardoning power was generally 
judicious. 

In July, 1 87 1, he took an active part in sup- 
pressing the so-called Orange Riots. He was 
equally successful in restoring harmony and in re- 
newing the business on the Susquehanna Railroad. 

In person Governor Hoffman was singularly 
pleasing. His manners were courteous, gentle 
and unaffected, and in conversation he exhibited 
the well-bred appearance and simplicity of an 
American gentleman. He travelled much abroad, 
and was as familiar with London and Paris as 
with New York. His favorite place of sojourn, 
however, was his home on the Hudson. His do- 
mestic life, from which neither politics nor the 
cares of office ever estranged him, was peculiarly 
happy. As a public speaker Governor Hoffman 
always made a deep impression through his evi- 
dent sincerity and by the clearness of his language 
and logic. He spoke as one who believed every 
word he was saying, and this induced his hearers 
to believe in him. He was a Trustee of Union 
College, Schenectady, and received the degree of 
LL. D. from that College and from Princeton. 
The " Public Papers of Governor Hoffman " were 
published in Albany, 1872.* 

He married, in January, 1854, Ella, daughter of 
Henry Starkweather, of New York City. They 
had one child : 

1033 Ella, born 1855; mar. Edward Sandford.

Children of Grace Roosevelt (493) and Dr. Guy Carleton Bayley . 

825 James Roosevelt Bayley^ (Martin\ Nicolaes", 

Martinus^ CorneHa^), eldest child of Grace Roose- 
velt (493) and Dr. Guy Carleton Bayley, was born 
in New York, August 23, 18 14. He was edu- 
cated at Mount Pleasant school near Amherst, 
Mass., and at Trinity College, Hartford, from 
which he was graduated in 1835. His father 
and grandfather both having been prominent as 



362 f^jje Jpofftnan oBcncalogp 



physicians, the son was naturally inclined to fol- 
low the same profession, and accordingly began 
the study of medicine. At the end of one year 
he gave up the idea of being a physician and 
took up theology with a view to entering the 
ministry of the Episcopal Church. After com- 
pleting his theological course under the direction 
of the Rev. Samuel F. Jarvis, at Middletown, 
Conn., he was duly ordained and placed in charge 
of St. Andrew's Church, Harlem, New York. 
During the cholera epidemic of 1 840-1 841 in New 
York City, Mr. Bayley was conspicuous in his 
ministrations to those suffering from the scourge. 

About this time his religious views underwent 
a change, and, dissatisfied with the teachings of 
the Episcopal Church, in the latter part of 1841 
he resigned the rectorship of St. Andrew's Church 
and went abroad. He finally embraced the Roman 
Catholic faith, and was admitted into the church 
at Rome in 1842. He then went to Paris, and was 
there prepared for the priesthood of the Roman 
Catholic Church at the Seminary of St. Sulpice. 
He returned to New York, where he was ordained 
by Archbishop Hughes, March 2, 1844, and was 
at once appointed Vice-President of St. John's 
College, Fordham, N. Y., to the presidency of 
which he subsequently succeeded. After resign- 
ing the latter position. Dr. Bayley was appointed 
private secretary to Archbishop Hughes. He 
proved a valuable assistant to the archbishop and 
contributed materially to the success of many of his 



if>0^cnt]^ (feneration 363 



undertakings for the advancement of the archdio- 
cese of New York. While acting in this capacity- 
he wrote " A Sketch of the CathoHc Church in 
New York," and also the " Life of Bishop Brute." 

Upon the recommendation of Archbishop 
Hughes, Dr. Bayley was appointed, in 1853, first 
Bishop of Newark, N. J., of which see he assumed 
charge on November i of that year. He found 
the diocese poorly supplied with priests, and no 
Roman Catholic institutions of any kind were within 
its province. In fact, it was an untilled mission- 
ary field. Under his administration it soon pros- 
pered, and in a short while became one of the 
most flourishing dioceses of the Roman Catholic 
Church in the country. His first efforts were 
devoted to the establishment of an educational 
institution, and he accordingly had the satisfaction 
of founding Seton Hall College in 1856. Later, 
having started a theological seminary in connec- 
tion with the college, he turned his attention to 
the establishment of an academy for females, and 
for this purpose brought a colony of nuns from 
Europe, which were the nucleus of the convent at 
Madison, N. J. The priory of the Benedictine 
monks in Newark, N. J., was established by him; 
the rehgious orders of Dominicans, Passionists and 
Augustinians entered the diocese, and numerous 
academies and educational institutions were started. 

In 1862 he was officially called to Rome for the 
canonization of the Japanese martyrs, and in 1867 
for the centenary of the apostles; and in 1869 he 



364 €{je i^offman c23cnea!ogp 

was present at the deliberations of the Ecumeni- 
cal Council. Bishop Bayley traveled much abroad 
and gave his countrymen the result of his experi- 
ences in a series of delightful lectures delivered on 
his return from each trip. 

In 1872 he was transferred to the archiepiscopal 
see of Baltimore, and in October of that year he 
was installed in the cathedral of that city, and 
invested with the pallium by Archbishop McClos- 
key of New York. Archbishop Bayley was sub- 
sequently created apostolic delegate and was ap- 
pointed to confer the insignia of office on Cardinal 
McCloskey. This same year he bestowed the pal- 
lium on Archbishop Wood of Philadelphia. Bishop 
Bayley left Newark with great reluctance, and it 
was only in deference to the papal decree that he 
accepted the high dignity of Archbishop of Balti- 
more. It is a fact worthy of note that in the bril- 
liant line of Baltimore archbishops, Archbishop 
Bayley was the third convert to the Roman Cath- 
olic faith. His administration of the see of Balti- 
more is memorable for the dedication of several 
churches and colleges, the laying of the corner- 
stone of others, the advent of the Benedictines into 
Baltimore, and most of all for the consecration of 
the cathedral of Baltimore. St. Mary's cathedral, 
the foundation of which was laid in 1806 by 
Bishop Carroll, remained encumbered with debt un- 
til May, 1876, when, through Archbishop Bayley's 
efforts, the debt was entirely liquidated, and the 
latter, the eighth in the line of archbishops, had 



i^cbcntj) oBenetation 365 



the distinguished honor of consecrating it to the 
service of God. 

In 1874 Archbishop Bayley attended the assem- 
bly of bishops held at Cincinnati, Ohio, and took 
part in the proceedings whereby four sees were 
made archbishoprics, and several new ones created. 
At this time his health was rapidly failing, and 
Bishop Gibbons had been appointed his coadjutor. 
In April, 1877, he again went abroad in the hope 
that the Vichy waters would prove beneficial to 
him, but growing rapidly worse, he returned to 
America. He died in Newark, N. J., October 3, 
1877.*

Children of David Murray Hoffman (504) and 
Frances A. Burrall. 

834 WlCKHAM^ (Martin^ Nicolaes-, Martinus'^ Niche- 
las'*, Martin'^ David Murray"), seventh child of the 
Hon. Murray Hofifman (504) and Frances Amelia 
Burrall, was born in New York City, April 2, 
1 82 1. He was graduated at Harvard University 
in 1 841, and became a lawyer. 

At the commencement of the Civil War, he was 
appointed aide-de-camp to Governor Morgan, and 
was sent to inspect the New York troops stationed 
at Fortress Monroe. In March, 1862, he entered 
the New York volunteer service as Assistant Ad- 
jutant-General, and was appointed on the staff of 
Brigadier-General Thomas Williams. He joined 
his command at Hatteras, at the time of General 



368 z^t i^offttian oBcncalogp 



Burnside's expedition to North Carolina, and 
thence proceeded with General Butler to New 
Orleans. He was with General Williams's com- 
mand in various expeditions to Vicksburg, etc., 
till the death of his commanding officer at the bat- 
tle of Baton Rouge. In October, 1862, Colonel 
Hoffman was ordered to report to General W. T. 
Sherman, Assistant Adjutant-General, and was 
on Sherman's staff till he was wounded at Port 
Hudson. 

When again fit for active duty, in July, 1863, 
Colonel Hoffman was ordered to report to Major- 
General W. B. Franklin, serving with him in the 
expeditions to the coast of Texas and Opelousas, 
and finally in the Red River campaign, being again 
wounded at the battle of Mansfield. He next 
reported to Major-General Butler, August, 1864, 
and was appointed by him Assistant Adjutant- 
General of the district of eastern Virginia and 
North Carolina. In March, 1865, Colonel Hoff- 
man was again ordered to report to him for duty 
in New Orleans ; and later in the same year was 
appointed as Adjutant- General and Chief of Staff 
to Major-General Canby, commanding the de- 
partment of Louisiana and Texas. 

In June, 1866, Colonel Hoffman resigned his 
military position, and upon the request of General 
Canby, was appointed Assistant Secretary of Le- 
gation at the court of Versailles. In January, 1867, 
at the request of General John A. Dix, then Min- 
ister to France, he was appointed First Secretary 



M>t\^cnt^ (iBmcration 369 

of Legation. He filled that position while Gen- 
eral Dix and Governor E. B. Washburne were 
ambassadors, — a period of nine years, — and was 
present in Paris during the reign of the Commune. 
In February, 1875, he was transferred to London 
as Secretary of Legation there ; and in May, 
1877, was appointed Secretary of Legation at 
St. Petersburg, where he acted the greater part of 
the time (six years) as " Charge d' Affaires " of the 
United States. He resigned the Secretaryship in 
St. Petersburg in February, 1882, and in the same 
month was appointed by President Arthur Minis- 
ter-Resident and Consul-General to Denmark, 
and was unanimously confirmed by the United 
States Senate. This post he filled until 1884, 
when on President Cleveland's election he sent in 
his resignation, and retired into private life. 

Colonel Hoffman proved himself in the field to 
be a gallant officer, and in a diplomatic capacity he 
served his government with great credit, gaining 
the good opinion of foreign officials and the high 
regard of his fellow-citizens traveling abroad. He 
published a book entitled "Camp, Court and Siege," 
which embodies many of the experiences of his 
varied life. After his resignation as Danish Con- 
sul-General he lived for some years in Paris, but 
a few years ago built a house in Washington, D, C, 
where he now resides. 

He married, May 14, 1844, Elizabeth Baylies,

THE HOUSE MOTHER OF ST. FAITH'S.* 

The throne, the crown, the scepter, — have we lost. 
In losing these, the queen ? I tell you. Nay. 
Vanished the baubles, yet in endless stay 

Abides the queenship ; holding not by boast 

Of armored fleet, or quartered shield, or ghost 
Of right divine, or erudite array 
Of maxims of the law ; but in their way 

Who, seeming least to rule us, rule us most. 

Her crown a circlet of transfigured thorn, 

Her throne the lowliest seat, her rod 
A southern lily, and her realm a home. 

She lived among us queen by grace of God, 
Unto the purple through the Spirit bom. 
Hearken, ye daughters ! Hear ye not her " Come " ?

He was educated for the legal profession, and 
having been called to the bar in New York, went 



384 €|)e ipoffman «l5cncalogp 



west shortly after to the young State of Califor- 
nia, where he established himself and made his 
home for the remainder of his life. 

He was commissioned United States District 
Judge for the District of California, on February 
27, 185 I, and held the office thenceforth until his 
death, which occurred in San Francisco, on August 
9, 1891. 

In the year 1893 an excellent portrait of Judge 
Hoffinan was presented to the District Court of 
California, in the presence of a large audience 
composed of judges, members of the bar, and 
distinguished citizens. 

One of the speakers on this interesting occasion 
referred to Ogden Hoffman as " one of the most 
remarkable characters the judicial history of this 
country has ever presented for the admiration of 
Americans." 

The same speaker continued : 

" He knew the law as a science. But he pos- 
sessed more than mere knowledge of the law. 
That mysterious and broad growth of the mind, 
which we call culture, was characteristic of the 
man. He was familiar with any subject of dis- 
cussion, however provoked. Philosophy, litera- 
ture, science, art — with all he was as well ac- 
quainted as with legal principles and precedents. 
He was specially versed in the classics, and had 
more than ordinary knowledge of several modern 
languages. He was fond of the higher mathe- 
matics. I have seen him on the bench, when 



d^ebmtjj (feneration 385 

some cause was proceeding before him of impor- 
tance sufficient to compel the whole mental force 
of a judicial officer, apparently paying no atten- 
tion to the babble of witnesses and the jargon of 
counsel, and entertaining himself with translating 
an ode of Horace or some fragment of his favorite 
of the Greek play-writers, the 'Antigone' of Sopho- 
cles. I have seen him, under similar conditions, 
working out problems in the higher mathematics 
or figuring in the realm of science as applied to 
steam and electricity. Yet at no moment did any 
phase of the case escape him. Apparently called 
back to it by some objection to evidence or other 
matter requiring attention, there was no occasion 
for counsel to inform him of the proposition under 
discussion. He seized it with almost superhuman 
intuition, and decided it with a celerity and a 
clearness and cleanness of appropriate language 
that passed all admiration, as its method often 
passed understanding. 

" No advocate ever stood before him without 
comprehending that not only his cause but 
himself was being measured ; and while he was 
tolerant of inexperience, and even of ignorance, he 
was intolerant of shiftiness, of trickery, of the small 
mysteries of uncandid minds. He abhorred the 
very semblance of duplicity, and was always the 
swift executioner of whatever lacked the quality 
of right. His rebukes were brief but effective. 

" No litigant ever had a good cause who did 
not find in this Judge his best advocate. He was 
25 



386 €j)c ipoffitian ^Bcncalogp 



always for the cause whose justice he discerned, 
always the foe of injustice ; while his gentleness, 
his charity and his wit, that never wounded, trans- 
figured all with which they came in contact. His 
judicial duties, which were at all times laborious, 
were at one time intense, and to an intellect less 
keen than his, most exhausting. They involved 
not alone the usual proceedings in admiralty and 
maritime matters, external and internal excise, and 
the causes arising under the acts regulating the 
jurisdiction of this court, but most novel and im- 
portant questions affecting the tenure of lands, 
public and private, following the treaty of Guada- 
lupe-Hidalgo and the acts of Congress touching 
the settlement of the boundaries of enormous 
grants of the public lands. His adjudications of 
the difficult question of law and fact in this branch 
of his judicial work involved probably more values, 
present and prospective, than those of any other 
equal number of causes ever presented to any 
single court of original jurisdiction, and were of 
the highest utility to the nation, the State of Cali- 
fornia and its people. 

" Judge Hoffman's career commenced during 
the formative period of this great Empire of the 
Pacific. It was a small community when this 
young man, with the ink scarcely dry upon his 
license, stepped from bar to bench. Around it 
are clustered the best, the most adventurous in 
life and thought, the ablest men this State has 
ever known. I have no time to call the roll of 



^ebcntlj) <i5cncration z"^! 



the great lawyers, recruited from the bar of every 
State in the Union, who stood here when, almost 
beardless, as clear-eyed and sunny as a boy let 
out of school, he bounded to the rostrum and be- 
came the judicial pivot around which turned so 
much of the future of California. It was a time 
when assaults were likely to be made upon the 
integrity of a judge; when ambition, cupidity 
and avarice urged the commission of acts not 
sanctioned by law or the ethics of the legal pro- 
fession. But from the first day of his judgeship 
until the hour of his final rest — during forty years 
of judicial life — no one assailed by word or innu- 
endo his judicial or personal integrity. No lawyer 
and no Htigant, even in the moment of supreme 
disappointment, ever indulged a suspicion that he 
was otherwise than perfectly pure in his great 
office. He was at all times essentially clean in 
life, thought and action. 

" What a life of endless toil his was ! Its his- 
tory is embalmed in the decisions of cases in the 
reports, in the multitudinous records of the sea of 
litigation. Thinking only of the right, caring for 
nothing except to do justice, he lived like a phi- 
losopher, and died without a dollar and without a 
debt. Yet he left behind him those who owe him 
much. No lawyer at this bar but felt himself 
better, stronger and happier for contact with him. 
No one conversed with him without gaining some- 
thing from him. His language had a wealth of 
imagery, a power, a brilliancy of illustration that 



388 €f^t J^offttian <(Bienealo0p 



would have made his a great name anywhere else 
than on this provincial soil of California. Any- 
where but here the name of Ogden Hoffman 
would have won national distinction, as did his 
father's before him. He was a great Judge ; a 
truly honorable soul ; one who deserved of life 
better than he received, and who lived and died, 
always in the best and highest sense of the word, 
a perfect gentleman."

Augustus*^), fifth child of Eugene Augustus Hoff- 
man (601) and Mary Crooke Elmendorf, was born 
at Burlington, N. J., July 22, 1863. He received 
part of his education in Burlington and in Phila- 
delphia, where his father was Rector of St. Mark's 
Church. In 1879 he entered the Law School 
of Columbia University, New York, where he 
studied two years. After leaving Columbia he 
went into the New York office of the Dela- 
ware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Com- 
pany, where he became Assistant Treasurer, 
and remained for nearly two years. He was 
very highly esteemed there for his accuracy 
and business-hke mode of performing his duties. 
He then went into the banking office of Brown 
Brothers, where he stayed for more than a

year, studying the different branches of the bank- 
ing business. His health, however, broke down, 
and symptoms of pulmonary trouble appearing, 
he went successively to Mexico, Southern Cali- 
fornia, Asheville, N. C, Algiers, and finally the 
Adirondacks, in search of relief, but unsuccess- 
fully. In 1890 he organized the Bridgeport Land 
and Improvement Company, at Bridgeport, Ala., 
and became its secretary, residing in Bridgeport. 
This position he retained until his death, perform- 
ing its duties faithfully and zealously. 

Before his health gave way he was well known 
as an athlete, and was the winner of several 
bicycle races. He was a member of the Union 
League, New York Athletic, and Knickerbocker 
Canoe Clubs, and of the Seventh Regiment. As 
a business man he inspired confidence in all who 
came in contact with him, while his personal 
magnetism and sterling integrity made him popu- 
lar and endeared him to the hearts of all who 
knew him. During his father's rectorship of St. 
Mark's, Philadelphia, he was an active member of 
the surpliced choir, and in his Adirondack home 
he was an earnest supporter of the Church of St. 
John in the Wilderness. 

He died at his father's home, the Deanery of 
the General Theological Seminary, New York, 
on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1891. The 
funeral services, which were very impressive and 
very largely attended, were held at Trinity 
Chapel, and were conducted by Bishop Potter and

acting as an escort to the church. The inter-

Cemetery. A few days later solemn memorial 
services in his memory were held in Bridgeport, 
Ala., conducted by the Bishop of Tennessee and 
other clergy, all the business houses of that city 
being closed in token of respect.

became Admiral Farragut's private secretary. 
" He had just the quickness of intellect and ap- 
preciation of the tremendous oncoming crisis to 
make himself indispensable to the Admiral, who 
saw in the lad the unmistakable qualities for 
martial greatness. If there was a delicate and 
grave matter to be handled, he intrusted it im- 
plicitly to Gabaudan." Farragut wrote of him 
to the Hon. Gideon Welles about the time 
of the siege of Vera Cruz : " Mr. E. C. Gabaudan 
has been with me some years, is a young man 
of fine abilities and education, and has on many 
occasions shown his courage and intrepidity. 
He has always been at my side in action, and 
his last act of enterprise and courage was passing 
down past Port Hudson with my dispatches to 
the lower fleet in a skiff at the risk of his life." 
Commodore Rowan wrote of him, February 
22, 1868, to his flag-officer: "I beg leave to 
bring to your notice Mr. Gabaudan, my clerk, 
acting as aide and signal-officer, who was with 
Captain Quackenbos and myself on the upper 
deck on the trying occasion." Gabaudan was 
also sent with dispatches to General Grant, 
General Banks, and General Sherman, — to the 
last mentioned a perilous journey of nine miles 
on foot and on a mule, — and on all these occa- 
sions received honorable mention. He was in 
the engagements at Roanoke Island, N. C, 
February, 1862; Winton, N. C, and Elizabeth 
City, N. C, February, 1862; Newberne, N. C,

burg, Miss., June and July, 1862 ; Port Hudson, 
La., Grand Gulf, Miss., Warrenton, Miss., and 
Grand Gulf, Miss., second time, March, 1862. 
At Admiral Farragut's solicitation, Gabaudan 
was appointed Lieutenant in the Marine Corps, 
March 18, 1864. He was stationed first at 
Boston, then at Brooklyn Navy Yard, and then, 
on the Hartford, was for two years with the 
Asiatic Squadron off the coast of China until 
his health compelled him to return home. The 
foundation of his disease had been laid by his 
sleeping in wet clothes on his bearing of de- 
spatches to Generals Grant and Sherman ; and 
though he rallied for a time and was able to 
perform his duties at the Navy Yard, he died of 
consumption March 27, 1868, at the early age 
of twenty-six. He was buried at St. Luke's 
Church, New York, with military honors, a 
large circle of relatives and friends and brother 
officers, by whom he was greatly beloved, unit- 
ing to pay their last tributes of respect on the 
occasion.

THE BRUYN FAMILY4 

From a paper by Thos. G. Evans, in N. Y. Gen. Record, IV, 5. 

Jacobus Bruyn, from Norway, Martin Hoffman, from 
Sweden, Hendrick Jochemse Schoonmaker, from Germany, 
and Daniel Brodhead, from England, were (with others) the 
founders and builders, the cultivators and protectors of the 
villages, the farms and the homes in Ulster County that are 
now occupied by their prosperous descendants. 

Jacobus Bruyn was born in Norway, probably about 1645. 
He emigrated to New Amsterdam, lived there for a time, and 
then pushed on to Ulster County, settling in what is now 
known as the town of Shawangunk. About 1677 he married

Gertrude Esselsteyn, of Columbia County. She was the 
daughter of Jan Willemse Esselsteyn and Willemtje Jans, and 
was baptized in New Amsterdam, May 22, 1650. Jacobus 
Bruyn died about 1684 or 1685, leaving his widow with three 
young children. These children were : 

Jan Bruyn, baptized October 6, 1678 ; probably died young. 
Jacobus Bruyn, born November 30, 1680.

After the death of her husband, in the year 1694, Gertrude 
Bruyn, while still a widow, obtained from the royal government 
a patent for a tract of land lying in the town of Shawangunk, 
now known as the " Gertruyd Bruyn Patent." It was granted 
to her and her three children, who were at that time minors. 

Gertruyd Bruyn subsequently married Severyn Ten Hout, a 
Hollander who came to this country in the ship Fox, in Sep- 
tember, 1662. He was a baker in Kingston, and occupied 
the adjoining patent, granted to Thomas Lloyd. He died 
without issue, and left his property, including the Lloyd Patent, 
to his wife's children, the Bruyns. 

The daughter of Jacobus Bruyn and Gertruyd Esselsteyn, 
Esther or Hester, married Zecharias Hoffman, son of Martin 
Hoffman and Emmerentje De Witt, and resided in Shawangunk 
on the East side of the Kill. The Bruyns lived in a house 
located on their patent on the east side of the public highway 
on the brow of the hill facing the lowland on the West side of 
the Shawangunk Kill. 

Jacobus, younger son of Jacobus Bruyn and Gertruyd Es- 
selsteyn, married, November 18, 1704, Katrina Schoonmaker, 
baptized November 22, 1684, daughter of Jochem Hendrikse 
Schoonmaker and Petronella Sleght, and settled on the Lloyd 
Patent, where he built a two-story stone dwelling-house near 
the Shawangunk Creek, which is still standing. He died No- 



vember 21, 1744, in the sixty-fourth year of his age, and was 
buried at Zacharias Hoffman's burial-place near his sister 
Esther. His wife, Katrina, died August 27, 1763, and was

in-law for the New World in the ship Gilded Otter. On 
arriving at New Amsterdam they proceeded immediately to 
the little village of Esopus, then just struggling into renewed 
existence after the Indian war and massacre of 1659. Here 
they settled and took up land. They had six children. 

His first wife, Marie, having died, Anthony Crispell married 
in 1680, Petronella Le Man, or De Mon, by whom he had 
three children :

" In 1647 he had obtained permission of the town of South- 
ampton to plant a colony of six families at ' North Sea.' He 
was made a freeman of Southampton, March 31, 1650, and 
was chosen by the General Court at Hartford, Conn., May 
16, 1656, and again, in 1657 and 1658, one of the Magis- 
trates of the Colony. He sat in the General Court as a 
Representative from Southampton in May, 1659, and in the 
Upper House, May, 1661, and afterwards. His name appears 
repeatedly in the new Charter of Connecticut (obtained April 
23, 1662, by Governor Winthrop from Charles H), as one of 
the magistrates and patentees of the colony. He was held in 
high honor at home, being one of the chief men of the colony. 

" When it was proposed to him after the conquest of New 
Amsterdam by the English to commence a fourth settle- 
ment in the new and inviting region of Achter Kol, under 
English rule, he readily entered into the measure, and became 
(being a man of substance and distinction) the leading man 
of the new colony. The Dutch having taken possession of 
New York, Mr. John Ogden was appointed Schout for the 
six towns (Elizabets Towne, Neu Uorke, Woodbridge, Piscat- 
taway, Middletowne and Schrousbury), his commission dating 
September, 1673. For more than a year the land was at rest. 
The people hved on good terms with the authorities at Fort 
Orange, and were secured in the enjoyment of their lands and 
privileges. Ogden was virtually Governor of the English 
towns in New Jersey, and the government was administered 
very much after the fashion of New England. But the Dutch 
rule was soon terminated. A treaty of peace was signed at 
Westminster, England, February 9, 1673-74, providing for the 
mutual restoration of all captured territory.

was born, the accepted leader of the people, a pillar of the 
Church and in the State, honored and trusted by all, lay down 
and died, leaving the impress of his political and religious 
principles, not only upon his children, but upon the commu- 
nity that he had so largely aided in founding. A man he was 
of more than ordinary mark, a man of sterling worth, of whom 
the town, as well as his numerous posterity, should be grate- 
fully mindful. He was called a ' malcontent,' and regarded 
as ' the leading malcontent of Elizabethtown,' but surely, the 
man that was held in such high esteem by the accomplished, 
sagacious and pious Winthrop, the man who, both at South- 
ampton and at Elizabethtown, had been an honored magis- 
trate, loved and trusted by the people, and, during the Dutch 
rule, the virtual Governor of the EngHsh portion of the prov- 
ince, is not to be ranked with restless agitators because of his 
persistent opposition to an arbitrary government. A true 
patriot and a genuine Christian, he devoted himself while 
living to the best interests of the town, and dying, bequeathed 
to his sons the work of completing what he had so fairly and 
effectually inaugurated — the establishment of a vigorous plan- 
tation founded on the principles of civil and religious liberty." 

David Ogden, third son of John Ogden and Jane Bond, 
married Elizabeth Ward, and had four sons.

David Ogden, eldest son of Colonel Josiah Ogden, was 
born in Newark, N. J., in 1707, and graduated at Yale Col- 
lege in 1728. He studied law, " rose rapidly in his profession," 
and "became one of its highest ornaments." In 1772 he was 
appointed a Judge of the Supreme Court of New Jersey, " and 
probably no man ever brought to that station qualifications of 
a higher order." Driven from the Bench by the force of events, 
he fled to the British Army in New York, and remained there

during the war. He went to England at the close of the war 
and was agent of the New Jersey Loyalists for prosecuting their 
claims for compensation for losses. His own estate, which was 
large and valuable, was confiscated, but a liberal allowance 
was made him by the British Government. In 1790 he re- 
turned to the United States and settled on Long Island, where 
he died in the year 1800, aged ninety- three. 

He married Gertrude Gouverneur, daughter of Abraham 
Gouverneur and Mary Leisler, by whom he had eleven chil-

Sarah Ogden, who married Nicholas Hoffman (No. 68). 

Isaac Ogden, son of David Ogden and Gertrude Gouver- 
neur, lived chiefly in New York and probably came there with 
his father when the war began. Hamilton said of him in 1777 
that he was " one of the most barefaced, impudent fellows that 
ever came under his observation." At the end of the war he 
removed to Canada, where for many years he was Judge of 
the Court of King's Bench. He died at Montreal. 

His first wife was Mary Browne, by whom he had two daugh- 
ters. His second wife, by whom he had six children, was 
Sarah Hansen, daughter of Henry Hansen and Alida Liv- 
ingston (her mother afterwards married, as his second wife.

Prince of Orange. As ' Captain of the Fort,' he built the ex- 
tension now known as the Battery. He was the first Colonial 
Governor of the State of New York, and was unjustly hanged, 
with Captain Milbourne, for high treason, in the City Hall 
Park, 1 69 1, and his estate was forfeited to the Crown. In 
1695, Parliament passed an Act reversing the attainder, and 
the State of New York indemnified his heirs. His bones and 
those of Milbourne were taken up in 1698, and honorably in- 
terred in the Old Dutch Church." t

at the entering of the Highlands, just over against Haverstraw, 
known by the Indians by the name of Monagh,"* and also-an

and mantels, and good wood carving in the interior. This 
old house is still standing, and in a good state of preservation. 
It is an excellent example of the architecture of the period. 
One of the most interesting features of the house is the date — 
1768 — marked in the gable by large black bricks."*

Peter Mesier graduated at Columbia College in 1789. He 
was a member of a Huguenot family who settled early in New 
York. They had also an old homestead at Wappinger's Falls, 
Dutchess Co., where Peter was brought up. This house, 
which was occupied by the British during the Revolution, re- 
mained in the family until the death of Miss Maria Mesier in 
1889. Since then the old house and the adjoining land have 



been acquired by the village as a public library and park. 
Peter Mesier was at one time a miller at Wappinger's Falls ; at 
another period he was an alderman of the city of New York. 

Margaret Verplanck Mesier died November 7, 1852, and 
was buried in the old Dutch churchyard at Fishkill village. 

Anna Maria Verplanck, fourth daughter of Philip Ver- 
planck and Effie Van Exveen Beekman, was born October 19, 
1773. She married, April 22, 1796, Colonel Andrew De 
Veaux, of the English Army. 

" How Col. De Veaux came to meet his wife is a matter of 
uncertainty, for the War of the Revolution had been long over 
and the English Army out of the country before Anna Maria 
was even fourteen years old. It is possible that Col. De 
Veaux was stationed in the West Indies, where Anna Maria's 
uncle, David Beekman, was a merchant. He came occasion- 
ally to New York, and it is possible that he brought young 
De Veaux with him and presented him to his niece. Certain 
it is, however, that after Col. De Veaux married Anna Ver- 
planck, he left the English service and settled in Red Hook, 
Dutchess County, where he built a large house of Grecian 
style of architecture. There they lived liberally, and perhaps 
extravagantly. Mr. Philip Verplanck, of Yonkers, who is a 
grandson of Col. De Veaux, has a drawing of the house at 
Red Hook, showing the park adjoining, of two hundred and 
ninety-eight acres. The property bordered on the Hudson 
River by Magdalen (now Cruger's) Island. The house and 
land passed into the possession of R. S. Livingston, Esq., who 
lived there until the house was burned several years ago." * 

The children of Andrew De Veaux and Anna Maria Ver- 
planck were : 

Jane De Veaux, who married John Hare Powell, of Phila- 
delphia, and had a son, Samuel Powell, of Newport.

Philip Verplanck and Augusta Maria De Veaux had a son, 
Philip, who lives at Yonkers, N. Y., and two daughters. 

After the death of his wife Col. De Veaux returned to Eng- 
land, where he died. His father, also named Andrew, sur-

THE BEEKMAN FAMILY.* 

William Beekman was the first ancestor of the Beekman 
family in America. He was born in Zutphen, Holland, April 
28, 1623. Some authorities give Hasselt, Overyssel, as his 
birthplace, but the register of his marriage states that he is 
" van Zutphen." He had been a magistrate and officer of the 
Dutch Church in Holland, and came over with Peter Stuyve- 
sant in May, 1647. ^^e founded the town of Rhinebeck on 
the Hudson. He invested largely in land in New Amsterdam. 
He was one of the Nine Men of that city in 1652, and in the 
years 1653, 1654, 1655, 1656 and 1657 he was elected one 
of the Schepens (assistant aldermen) of New Amsterdam, and 
in 1658 he was Orphan Master of the city. 

He was Vice-Governor of the South River Colony, on the 
Delaware River, 1658 to 1664, and in September, 1664, was 
Sheriff of Esopus. In December, 1653, he was a member of 
the Representative Convention at New Amsterdam, and in 
1690 a member of Lieutenant-Governor Leisler's Assembly. 
He was Burgomeister of New Amsterdam, August 16, 1674, 
and was elected Alderman of the city under the English at

twelve different dates until 1696, when he retired from public 
life. " The old New York records tell us that the business by 
which he lived and prospered was that of a brewer."* 

He married, September 5, 1649, Catherine De Hoogh, 
daughter of Frederick Hendriks De Hoogh, captain of a Hud- 
son River trading-vessel, by whom he had three sons and four 
daughters. 

His sons were : 

i. Henry Beekman (the Patentee), born in Wiltvvyck (Kings- 

■ ton). 
ii. Gerard Beekman. 
iii. John Beekman. 

WilUiam Beekman died in the city of New York, September 
21, 1707, in the eighty-fifth year of his age. 

Henry Beekman, son of William Beekman and Catherine 
De Bough (or De Hoogh), was born in Wiltwyck (Kingston), 
in 165 -. He married Joanna Loper, by whom he had five 
children. 

" Colonel Henry Beekman, Nicholas Bayard, and a few 
others were the favorites of Governor Fletcher, who made to 
them large grants of land on improvident terms. Among other 
grants, Henry Beekman was given a tract sixteen miles square 
in Dutchess County, on the Connecticut border, now the town 
of Beekman, and another on the Hudson River, eight by 
twelve miles, called Ryn Beeck, now Rhinebeck. He was 
known as the ' Great Patentee.' It was such grants as these 
that Lord Bellamont determined to vacate on becoming 
Governor. Proceedings were accordingly instituted, the re- 
sult of which was that Beekman lost several of his grants, 
amongst others the one in Dutchess County. After the recall

of Lord Bellamont, Colonel Beekman was again granted the 
Dutchess County property. It covered all the land East of the 
Rombout Patent, and extended to the Connecticut line. After 
the adjustment of the dispute with the owners of the Rombout 
Patent, it came to be known as the Beekman Precinct, and to-day 
the town of Beekman still perpetuates Henry Beekman's name. 

" In Smith's History of Dutchess County it is stated that 
Henry Beekman objected to the first grant made him in 1697, 
of lands in Dutchess County, because the annual quit-rent to 
the Crown (forty shillings) was too high. He therefore waited 
until 1703, when he obtained a final grant of the same land on 
more favorable terms." * 

Colonel Henry Beekman died in 17 16. 

The Hon. Gerardus Beekman, M. D., of Flatbush, Long 
Island, son of William Beekman and Catherine de Hoogh, was 
born in 1653, and died in New York, October 10, 1723. He 
was Captain of Militia at Flatbush, 1681, and Major in 1689; 
Lieut. -Colonel of King's County MiHtia in 1698, and Colonel 
of the Regiment, 1700 to 1703. He was a member of Lieut. - 
Governor Leisler's Council, 1690-91 ; a member of the Council 
of the Colony of New York, 1702-23 ; and Acting Governor of 
New York, as President of the Council, in 17 10. He was 
Justice of the Peace of Long Island, 1689, and County Judge 
of King's County, 1700.! 

He married, October 25, 1677, Magdaleen Abeel (born 
1 66 1, died September 14, 1730), daughter of Stoffel Jans

THE PROVOOST FAMILY.t 

David Provoost came from Holland to New Amsterdam 
before April, 1639, probably with Governor Kieft and his com- 
pany in March, 1638. In 1639 he was an original grantee of 
a parcel of land on the present west side of Pearl Street, near 
Fulton Street, where for some time he resided. | The same 
year he was engaged in trade, which was his principal occupa- 
tion when not in the service of the Government. 

He was in the employ of the Dutch West India Company 
in America for many years, his first official position being that 
of Commissary of Provisions and Tobacco Inspector in Jan- 
uary, 1640.1 

In April, 1642, he was placed in charge of Fort Good Hope 
at Hartford, Conn., where the Dutch maintained against the 
English for a number of years a separate and independent 
government.t 

In June, 1647, he returned to New Amsterdam, and his 
name appears in the list of schoolmasters in that year. In the 
list of the Nine Men, published February 2, 1652, his name is 
at the head.t These were the immediate predecessors of the 
Burgomeisters and Schepens, and of a municipal form of gov- 
ernment in the city of New Amsterdam. They were the 
chosen representatives of the entire commonalty, and it was 
declared in their commission that what they did should

be the act of the whole people. David Provoost was the 
second notary in the city, September i6, 1652, and was also 
an attorney and counselor, in which capacity we frequently 
find him attending to suits before the Burgomeisters and 
Schepens. 

On May 23, 1653, Governor Stuyvesant and Council ap- 
pointed him, with Johannes De La Montagne and Govert 
Loockermans, a commissioner to attend the investigation of an 
alleged conspiracy of the Dutch and Indians against the Eng- 
lish, " being able to understand the Dutch, English and Indian 
speeches." He was Sergeant in one of the Companies of the 
Burgher Corps of New Amsterdam in 1653, and in April, 
1654, was made the first separate Schout or Sheriff in Brueck- 
elen, and removed to Long Island. In May, 1655, he is styled 
Schout, or temporary Secretary, to the three adjoining towns of 
Brueckelen, Amersfoort (Flatlands) and Midwout (Flatbush), 
all of which were included in the Brueckelen district. This 
position he held until his death in January, 1656. 

He left a widow, Margaret GiUis (spelled also Jellis, Jelisen, 
Yilus and Yelsij). She was the daughter of Gillis Jansen Ver- 
brugge and Barbara Schut. She was probably married to 
David Provoost in Holland. They had ten children. The 
youngest one, 

David Provoost, born in Connecticut, was baptized Sep- 
tember 30, 1645. In 1674 he lived in The Smith Street (now 
William), between Hanover Square and Wall Street, his esti- 
mated wealth being $3000. 

He was chosen in September, 1694, Assessor in the Dock 
Ward, an office which he held until 1697-98. He married, 
July 29, 1668, Tryntje Laurens (born in Amsterdam, Novem- 
ber 14, 1650), by whom he had eleven children. 

Their son, 

William Provoost, born 1679, was baptized October 8,

1679. He died at New Barbadoes, Bergen County, N. J., in 
1745. He was Assistant Alderman of the North Ward, 1708- 
1709, 1709-10. In July, 1720, he was the owner, with others, 
of the privateer Hunter^ which was charged with taking prizes 
unlawfully. On June 17, 1722, Governor Burnet recom- 
mended him, as " an eminent merchant of this city," to a seat 
in His Majesty's Council in New York, and in July, 1723, he 
was appointed a member of that body, in which he served 
until August, 1732. About that time he removed to New 
Jersey, and soon after was appointed a member of the Council 
of that Province.* 

He married, November 20, 1700, Aefje Van Exveen (bap- 
tized December 19, 1683), daughter of Gerrit Corneliszen Van 
Exveen and Wyntje Stoutenburg.* They had seven children. 
Their daughter, 

Catharine Provoost, born in New York, Octobers, 1704; 
baptized October 8, 1704, married June 10, 1727, Gerard Beek- 
man, son of Dr. Gerard Beekman and Magdaleen Abeel, and 
was the mother of Effie Beekman, who married Philip Ver- 
planck. t She died April 20, 1763.
