The responses to previous Circulars having been so nearly sufficient to 
cover the cost of printing and binding as to encourage the publication of 
the work, it has been prosecuted to conipletiou in a limited number of 
copies. It is comprised in 549 closely printed pages, containing the names 
of 7300 descendants of Richard Lyman, the first settler in America, and 
is printed on fine tinted paper, and substantially bound in cloth. 

The subscribers being scattered over nearly all the States in the Union, 
and changes having probably taken place in the location of some of them 
since their names were sent in, it is necessary to pursue a uniform policy in 
the distribution of the work for the sake of economy of time and labor, 
and certainty and accuracy of delivery. Please therefore to remit by postal 
order or draft on New York or Boston $5 on the receipt of this circular, for 
the book, and 48 cts. to prepay the postage, if it is desirable to have it sent 
by mail, and the work will be forwarded safely wrapped and postage 
prepaid and receipted bill enclosed. 

For the volume bound in cloth, $5.00 

do. with Frontispiece (an emblazoned coat of arms), 5.25 

do. Frontispiece and chart of Lymans, 5.50 

In paper covers with Frontispiece and Chart, 5.00 

Some copies have been printed on paper of a cheaper grade, which will 
be furnished in any of the above forms at $ L less per copy. 

Only about one-half of the edition can be furnished with a chart ; they 
will be supplied to first orders received, until exhausted. 

If the book is ordered to be sent by express, the amount of subscription 
only need be remitted, as the cost of carriage can be paid on delivery of 
the book. When ordered to be sent C. 0. D. double expressage is charged, 
to defray expense of returning the money. It is therefore more economical 
to remit the money with return of this circular, upon receipt of which the 
work will be forwarded with receipted bill enclosed, and all further expense 
of correspondence will be saved. 

For accuracy of delivery, please to fill the blank below in a plain hand, 
with your name and address, and return this circular, with the amount of 
subscription and postage enclosed. The work will be forwarded in the order 
of remittances received.

THE MEMORY 

OF 

Mi^^ Julia a^, Hgman, 

THE FAITHFUL AND DILIGENT GENEALOGIST 
OF THE LYMAN FAMILY, 

TO WHOSE LABORS THET ARE INDEBTED FOR 

THIS WORK, 

IT IS AFFECTIONATELY, SORROWFULLY, 
DEDICATED 

BY THEIE UNANIMOUS VOTE AT THEIR 
LATE KBUlSriON ON MOUNT TOM, 

Northampton, 
Aug. 39, 1871. 



PEEFACE. 



The authorship of this genealogy of the Lyman family 
is to be ascribed to our deceased friend Miss Julia E. 
Lyman. It was the labor of her life, the completion of 
which she was not permitted to see. But by her tireless 
researches through life, she had collected materials from 
every quarter, and reduced them to such order in her 
admirable chart, that it was just practicable to take up the 
labors of her hands when they were palsied in death. 
This chart was the last labor of her life. The memory of 
it is saddened by the reflection that her assiduities in 
extreme debility from the advanced stages of disease may 
. have hastened prematurely the fatal issue. 

Had the pen dropped from her hand but a little earlier, 
before the completion of the chart, the labors of her life 
would have remained incomplete. The continuance of this 
work, begun only in reliance on the aid of the deceased, 
would have been dropped; and the work remained un- 
published. But in an evil hour the undersigned, quite 
unconscious of the task he was assuming, resolved to carry 
on, according to his ability, the work suspended by 
the untimely decease of the principal agent and author. 
Under innumerable discouragements, embarrassments and 
difficulties resulting from the indifference and neglect 
of very many, the record of whose families was repeatedly 
sought in vain, and in the midst of accumulated domestic 
afflictions, the toilsome task has been pursued. New 
lineages of families totally unknown have been developed, 
often making up a record of several hundred names. The 
utmost diligence and care have been held in requisition to 



SYKOPSIS OF THE GENERATIONS OF LYMANS. 



The number of the several generations of this family, 
so far as the count has been carried, is found to be, as 
follows : 

First Generation, 1 

Second Generation, 9 

Third Generation, 27 

Fourth Generation, 64 

Fifth Generation, 191 

Sixth Generation, 381 

Seventh Generation, 947 

Eighth Generation, 1982 

Ninth Generation, 2020 

Tenth Generation, 511 

Eleventh Generation, 33 

6166 

The Eighth Generation, 1982 

The Ninth Generation, 2020 

The Tenth Generation, 511 

The Eleventh Generation, 33 

Numbered among the living are 4546 

Of these generations the deceased are 486 

Still living 4060 

To these add of Seventh Gen. still living, say 40 

The number of Lymans now living, 4100 

Of the 6th and 6th generations 572, 26 were in the Revolu- 
tionary war ; allowing i = 114 to be able to bear arms, ^j\ 
or more than \ of the able bodied men were in the army 
battling for our independence.

fighting men equal 800, of whom 100 or ^ were in the 
war of the rebellion. Of these many died in the rebel

states of disease or on the field of battle, some by the slow 
torture of starvation in Andersonville or the Libby prison, 
but, of all these no accurate count has been made. 

From 10 colleges 93 Lyman s have graduated, but the 
number graduating from all the colleges in the country 
has not been ascertained. Our intention was to ascertain 
the entire number of Lymans and descendants from Lyman 
mothers, together with the number in each of the learned 
professions, but having neither leisure nor health for the 
further prosecution of these inquiries we remit them to the 
inquisitive reader who has the data at hand in the book for 
these and similar researches. A large proportion have 
filled the office of the ministry, and a much larger number 
have held office in the church as deacons and elders. 

The descendants of the six grandsons of Richard^ 
severally are as follows according to the record : 

1. Descendants of Richard'5, son of Eicliard-, 2735 

2. Descendants of Thomas'^, son of Ricliard-, say,.. 400 

3. Descendants of John^, son of Richard-, 519

The materials for a suitable obituary notice of Dr. Lyman came to hand 
too late for insertion in its appropriate place. The following extracts from 
his last sermon on the " Hidden Life of the Christian," are given as a beauti- 
ful illustration of his own Christian life and character : 

Ye are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who 
is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Col. 
Ill : 3. 

Our physical life, mysterious and subtle though it be, is exposed to the 
malice of its enemies, and liable at any moment to be destroyed. It is 
hidden in ourselves, and held by a feeble tenure. Disease may poison it, 
accident may crush it, the assassin may stab it, and it dies. It is ever in 
the road of death. Not so our spiritual life. It is hidden away in God, 
where disease cannot reach it, where the poison of the world cannot infect 
it, and where no enemy can assail it. God is its fountain. It has its 
spring in Him, and the strong arms of the Almighty protect it, and eyes 
that never sleep keep ceaseless guard over it. No foe which is not stronger 
than God can ever storm its citadel or penetrate its hidden home. So not 
only is its fountain protected, but all its channels are covered and guarded. 
Human wisdom, and not even Satanic cunning, can explore them or seek 
out their hiding place. As the stream which has its head on some bald, 
ice-bound, inaccessible mountain top, and whose channel is buried and 
concealed in its rocky bosom, until it bursts forth from the earth at your 
feet, so is the Christian's life, in its fountain and all its channels, protected, 
and hidden in the bosom of God. Here and there you see a Christian life, 
on the earth and among men, and yet so manifestly not of the earth or of 
the spirit of men, that it seems like some rare and beautiful exotic. By 
any earth born theorj^ it cannot be accounted for. You see it in its peace 
and beauty, in its daily outgivings of blessing, and it fills j'ou with wonder 
and admiration. You call it a miracle and so it is — one of Christ's silent 
miracles — the miracle of a Christly life. 

But there is yet another sense in which, to-day, this life in Christ is to 
us a hidden life. It is the eternal life, the Christian life only in its early 
beginnings, dimmed and obscured by the weaknesses and frailties of the 
flesh, and darkened and overshadowed by its mortal and carnal surround- 
ings. Its glory doth not yet appear. . It is hidden in the rubbish of the 
earthly and the sensual. " Eye hath not seen, ear hath not heard, neither 
have entered into the heart of man the things that God hath prepared for 
them that love him." But this is not always so to be. " It doth not yet 
appear what we shall be ; but we know that when he shall appear we 
shall be like him," " for we shall see him as he is." Great honor is yet to 



Addenda. xiii 

be rendered to the Son of God, before all the universe, for the Christly 
work of hujnan redemption. Peerless is to be the glory of man's Re- 
deemer. Now, he, who is our life, is hidden from mortal vision. Though 
present, he is yet concealed. But in the fullness of time he is to be made 
manifest. He shall come in the glory of the Father and with him all the 
holy angels. Not a part simply of the heavenly host, but all the mighty 
army of the skies shall form his retinue. Beyond all human conception 
of glory, shall be the greatness and the splendor of that day. He comes 
to meet, and recognize, and gather home his redeemed children on earth, 
and every eye shall see him. And then, in that glorious hour, " when he 
who is our life, shall appear, shall we also appear with him in glory," if 
we are his children. And then, in the presence of the intelligent universe, 
shall Christ welcome his elected bride, his blood bought Church to her 
home in the mansions of the Father, and with her sit down to the marriage 
supper of the Lamb. Who can conceive the glory of that hour ? 

Other eloquent sentences, belonging to this discourse, fell from the lips 
of the lamented author, but tlie opportunity of recalling them is gone for- 
ever. It escaped with the breath that gave them utterance. He was 
wonderfully gifted in the power of extemporaneous speech, and many of 
his written sermons were doubly effective by reason of these interjected, 
or closing sentences, inspired by the occasion. The members of the 
Second Presbyterian Church will never forget the foregoing sermon, 
preacbed on the day of their communion Sabbath, January 14, 1873, only 
five days before he fell asleep in Jesus. 

"We cannot better close our allusion to the pastor of the Euclid Avenue 
Presbyterian Church, than by reprinting these lines of Bonar, so frequently 
quoted by Dr. Lyman, and so beautifully characteristic of his short but 
blessed ministry : 

*' My name, and my place, and my tomb all forgotten, 

The brief race of time well and patiently run. 
So let me pass away, peacefully, silently. 

Only remembered by what I have done. 
Gladly away from this toil would I hasten. 

Up to the crown that for me has been won ; 
Unth ought of by man in rewards or in praises, 

Only remembered by what I have done."

Mr. B. S. Lyman of Philadelphia, who was lately in the service of the 
British government in India as a mining engineer, boring for rock oil in 
the Punjab, has pubhshed two brief but valuable memoirs on the Punjab 
oil region (lying in the corner between Cashmere and Cabul, between 
latitudes 32° 31' and 33° 47'), which is also a region of historical interest 
being near the supposed cradle of the Aryan or Indo-European races. It 
is within a few miles of Attok, where Alexander the Great crossed the 
Indus, and ofTaxila, where he was hospitably entertained by King Taxiles • 
the " fabulous Hydaspes," now the Jhelum river, flows across one corner 
of this oil region, and near by is the traditional site of one of the com- 
passionate miracles of Buddha, who once traversed this nook of the world. 
The first of Mr. Lyman's memoirs was his " General Report of the Punjab 
Oil Lands," printed by Lord Mayo's government at Lahore in 1870, an 
official folio of 50 pages with a set of maps attached ; but this is not gene- 
rally accessible. The second is a briefer paper on the Topography of the 
Punjab Oil Region read before the American Philosophical Society of 
Philadelphia, last January, and printed in Vol. xv of its Transactions. It 
is also published separately by the author, making 14 large quarto pages, 
and with a geological and topographical sketch-map of the region added! 
It is an interesting paper, speaking briefly of the main features of the re-

gion described, its geological character and mineral products, and commu- 
nicating much information that is at once new and valuable. Although 
several English geologists have spoken of this tract in the Punjab, none 
have studied it so minutely as Mr. Lyman, vrho vras also the first Ameri- 
can geologist to visit it.

LYMAN GENEALOGY. 



PART I. 

I. THE LYMAN NAME. 

The origin and signifieancy of modern English names, in- 
volved in inexplicable myster}^, opens a boundless range for 
theories and fanciful speculations quite foreign to our taste 
and purpose. In Anglo-Saxon, Leoman. (lion-man f) ap- 
pears as the name of an Anglo-Saxon land holder prior to 
the ISTorman conquest. Leoman, rolling swiftly from the 
tongue in familiar conversation, might easily become Le- 
man. Whether this is the true origin and meaning of the 
name — deus aliqui viderit — some theorist of keener insight 
may determime. In authentic history the original name 
was Leman. 

Xiike most of the English surnames, this has passed 
through many changes in settling down to the present or- 
thography. It has been written Lehman, Leyman,Lyeman, 
Lemman, Lemon, Leman and de Le Man. The French, 
supposing the name to be derived from Vaiman, have 
written it L'aiman. In America the name has taken 
the form, Liman, Liraen, Limon, Limmon, Lemon, Lea- 
mond and Lemond. In the records both of the town and 
of the church in N'orthampton, for the first fifty years 
or more, the name is generally written Liman ; early in the 
last century it took the fixed and settled form of the pre- 
sent appropriate orthography, Lyman. 

The pedigree of the Lymans in England, the ortho- 
graphy of the name and identity of the Lymans and the Le- 
man s have been the subject of a protracted and exhaustive 
investigation by H. A. Lyman, Esq., of London, to whom 
we are indebted for the following summary of the pedigree 
of the family in England. Every English record likely to 
2

throw light upon the subject has been searched, particu- 
larly the De Banco, Coram Rege, Subsidy and Quo War- 
ranto Rolls, extending frona the 5th Richard I Rolls. From 
all these the conclusion is irresistible that the names Leman 
and Lyman are one and the same. That they were recog- 
nized as the same appears from the fact that Sir John Iceman, 
lord mayor of London, 1616, had a correspondence with 
the widow of Henry Lyman, brother of Richard, respecting 
her return to England ; and that the father of Sir John held 
part and parcel of the same estate which came into the 
possession of the Lymaus by the marriage of Thomas 
Lyman, of I^avistoke, with Elizabeth Lambert. The name 
Lyman, in this ortliography , appears in the parish records of 
High Ongar as far back as 1521. 

The change of the vowels e and ito y is in entire accord- 
ance with the analogies of our language in its primitive 
forms ; " z exchanges with y in writing and sometimes with 
ea, miht, myht, meaht, might, y ia ii-umlau of u and ea. 
It was a favorite letter with the penmen, and is often found 
for i and sometimes for e, ae: cyning, king, eald, yldesi, 
old, oldest, lyden, leden, Latin." March's Anglo-Saxon, 
Grammar p. 12, § 23. 

Tne following illustrations are also given by the same au- 
thor: "Latin, in the Anglo-Saxon, iet/en, is often written 
Lyden. In the preface to the Heptateuch of JElfric, the 
fourth line, has of Ledene, from Latin ; line 20, Lyden un- 
derstandan, to understand Latin; the ending nes, Gothic 
is very often nys, §228. Thus in yia.i\i., h:Q, righteous- 
ness is rightwisnesse in one manuscript; nysse in another, 
and so other words in ness ; neten is often written nyien, neat 
cattle ; Ps., 135 : 8, hel, hell, is written hyl, Cadman, p. 307, 
line 27 and elsewhere hlehhan, hlahian, laugh is found 
hlyhhan, in ^delstan, 47, Judith, 23, and examples with- 
out number might be enumerated. " 

The substitution of y for i is too frequent and familiar to 
require illustration. ' Flynt, Lynd, Lyndsay, Van Syckle, 
etc. The German pronunciation of Lyman, is precisely 
the same as ours of Leman. The two forms of ortho- 
graphy are only diiferent methods of representing by sym- 
bols the same sound, and the names Lem.an, Liman and Ly- 
man are doubtless one and the same. 

The careless and variable orthography of this family 
name in ancient records is apparent in the follow, 
ing reference^: In the Subsidy Rolls for Kent, 1st Ed., 
iii, the name is written Lyeman, and in the subsequent 



The Ltmans in Great Britain. 11 

rolls for the same place Lemman and Leman. In a pedi- 
gree of the family, John, the grandfather of Sir John, Lord 
Mayor, is called " John deLe Mans, " but Sir John's name 
is uniformly Leman. In a pedigree from " The Visita- 
tion of London, 1663-4," the father and brothers of Sir 
John are written " Lemman,'' while Sir John is entered 
" Lemon.'' The eldest son of Sir John's brother is en- 
tered '"'■Lemon,'' and his youngest son " Leman." 

Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary, has the names 
Lemon, Leamond, Lemond, Leman and Lyman. Through 
all these intermediate changes the conclusion is easy, na- 
tural and irresistible, that the ancient Leman has changed 
to the modern Lyman — both one and the same. 



11. THE FRONTISPIECE AND ARMS OF THE FAMILY. 

The Lyman family have, at different times, borne five 
separate armorial bearings or emblems, of which two only 
are worthy of particular notice. The arms that form the 
frontispiece seem to have been adopted long before any 
official grant of arms was made. They are the oldest and 
apparently the original family bearings. They appear in 
an old manuscript roll of arms, under the name of Lyman. 
They are now recorded as used by " Lemon, Lemmon, Lee- 
man and Leman." The same arms are found in Burke's 
Armory where they are entered as the arms of "Lyman 
or Leman." 

"We are indebted to Mr. H. A. Lj^man, of London, for 
the following extracts from the best authorities relating to 
English heraldry, which give, in a concise fqc^m, the sub- 
stance of many hundreds of books which, from time to 
time, have been printed on this subject : 

" In the beginning of the 16th centurj?, owing to the mul- 
tiplicity of abuses and irregularities which had crept into all 
matters appertaining to the descent of arras, commissions 
were issued under the great seal empowering the heralds 
to visit their different provinces or districts, as often as 
they deemed it necessary, and to convene before them all 
those who bore or assumed to bear arms, and to cause 
them to produce and to show by what authority and right 
they challenged the said use of arms. These circuits 
were called visitations. The earliest of these visitations 
was held in 1528-1529. These were regularly made 
every twenty-five or thirty years, until the close of the 17th 



12 Lyman Genealogy. 

century. The records or register book of these visitations 
are of the highest importance. Unfortunately, many of 
the books are now lost, and those that remain are scattered 
among the private and public libraries of the kingdom." 

" l!«fothing is absolutely known concerning it beyond the 
fact that the middle of the 12th century is the earliest 
period to which the bearing of heraldic devices properly 
so-called can be traced ; and the commencement of the 13th, 
the time about which they became hereditary. 

" The earliest roll of arms of which we have any notice 
is of the reign of Henry III (1216), and the reign of 
Edward I presents us with the earliest heraldic document 
extant. 

" The oldest writer on heraldry was Nicholas Upton, 
whose treatise was composed in the reign of Henry Y, 
(1413). His definitions and explanations can only be 
looked upon as assertions made nearly three hundred 
years after the origin of the practice, and, consequently, 
to be believed, or not, according to the discretion of the 
reader. 

"College of Arms was founded reign of Richard HI, 
(1483)." 

In the frontispiece the central figure, within and under 
the crest of the helmet and the rampant bull, is divided into 
four parts representing three coats of arms. The first and 
fourth is that of the Lymans repeated in the fourth division 
to make up the quarterly. In the Lyraan arms the signifi- 
cant figure is the annulet or rm^ within the triangle. This 
very ancient and frequent emblem in heraldry is differently 
interpreted. It is said to be an emblem of eternity, having 
neither beginning nor end. In Webster's Dictionary it is 
described as " formerly reputed to be a mark of nobility 
and jurisdiction. It is also a mark of distinctive form by 
the fifth brother of a family in his coat of arms." 

The second figure in the quarterly is the arms of Elizabeth' 
Lambert, the heiress, who by her marriage about 1488, with 
Thomas Lyman, of I^avistoke, near High Ongar, brought 
large estates into the family. 

The third is the arms of Sarah Osborue, the wife of 
Richard^ the original immigrant to America, the ancestor 
of all the Lymans, recorded in this book. 

The coat of arms most frequently adopted by the Lymans, 
in which dolphins play a conspicuous part, is that of Sir 
John Lyman lord mayor of London, a few years before 
the first immigration to this country. Sir John was largely

interested in the Fishmongers Company, and the dolphins, 
it is suggested, may have some reference to this interest. 
The crest is surmounted by a pelican in her nest feeding her 
young. The significancy of these emblems and the origin 
of these armorial bearings is given by Burke : In the 
12th year of the reign of King James the first, Jan. 25, 
1616, a coat of arms was granted to Sir John Leman, viz : 
"Azure, a chevron embovved, three dolphins Naiant, Ar- 
gent." These dolphins are said to be " symbols of social 
love." The crest has a pelican with a bloody crest feeding 
her young — also an emblem of love. 



III. PEDIGREE OF THE LYMANS IN GREAT BRITAIN. 

The old records of England throw but little light upon 
the origin, or early history of this ancient Saxon f^imily ; 
and although inheritors of estates at the time of the con- 
quest of England, often derived their surnames from the 
place of their abode, our investigations do not enable us to 
determine what the connection of home or inheritance was, 
if any ever existed, between the Leman family, and the 
little ancient place called Lymen, that was once a hamlet 
in the county of Kent. Our first knowledge of this family 
name is obtained from the register or survey of the lands 
of England, framed by the order of King William the 
Conqueror, and known as Doomsday Book. The trans- 
lation from this record of eight hundred years ago (vol. i, 
p. 38a), is as follows : 

" Hampshire. The King's land. Bosmere Hundred. 
The King himself holds 2J hides^ in Hayling Island. 

Leman held them in parcenary^ of King Edward, Harold 
deprived him of them when he usurped the kingdom, and 
converted them into a royal manor, and they so remain. 
They were then assessed at 2J hides, now at nothing. 
There are IJ ploughland,^ one in demesne,^ with one vil- 
lein,^ and eight cottagers,^ with half a ploughland. There

of the land. ^ Holding in equal portions, both in property and as to right, 
&c. ^ Norman measure, about 100 acres. ■* As lord of the manor. ^ Be- 
longing or annexed to a manor whereof the Lord was owner, and were 
usually sold with the farm to which they respectively belonged. This word 
often occurs in Doomsday, and some think they were boors, or husbandmen, 
with a small parcel of land allowed to them on condition that they should 
supply the lord of the manor with poultry, eggs, and other small provision 
for Ms board and entertainment.

is also 1^ acres of meadow. In the time of King Edward 
it was worth forty shillings, afterwards twenty shillings, 
now seventy shillings." 

" Meonstoke Hundred. The King holds Soberton. 
Leman held it of Earl Godwin. 'A Harold, when he reigned, X 
took it from him, and made it a royal manor, and it so re- 
mains. Leman himself could not remove where he wished. 
It is said that he held lands in Finchdean Hundred, in 
parcenary. It was then assessed at 4 hides, now at nothing. 
It contains 2 ploughlands, half a ploughland in demesne. 
There are six villeins and three cottagers, with two plough- 
lands, and .two mills, which pay fifteen shillings, and one 
acre of meadow. Its value was and is, three pounds.'' 

There can be little doubt but that this Saxon Leman con- 
tinued the tenancy of the lands described, until his death, 
and that he was succeeded in the tenancy by his son Os- 
bert described as " Osbert Fil Leman," and who in the 
time of Henry I, was a witness to a charter touching the 
grant of certain lands to the Abbot of Battle. This Osbert 
was succeeded by his two sons, John and Richard, both 
paying taxes upon their lands during the reign of King 
Stephen, and Henry II, the former holding in the island 
of Hayling, and the latter in the counties Southampton, 
IsTorfolk, and Kent. This first Richard Leman, had issue, 
John, who held lands in the county Southampton, time 
Henry II, and Richard I, and from the receipts for the 
Exchequer we find he was one of the contractors for the 
supply of timber for the repairing and enlarging of the 
fortifications of the castle of Rochester, Kent. He was 
succeeded by his eldest son Eldred, who continued in the 
possession of the lands in county Southampton, and also 
held lands in Luthyngland, county Sufi:blk, conjointly with 
his brother Robert, which said lands they held of the king 
in capeti, time of King John. This Robert, the brother of 
Eldred, married and had issue. Eldred had issue : two 
sons, Alan and Robert, the latter settled in St. Edigie, 
county Cambridge. 

Alan held lands at Stane and Wilburham, county Cambridge, of 
the Knights Templar, time of Henry III. 

I. Thomas Lyman, alias Leman, held divers land, 
county Wiltes, during his father's lifetime, reign of

claim to the title, but had not obtained possession of the estate. 
His indefatigable labor of mind and body in a just cause has 
shortened his days. He has for the last six months been sink- 
ing under the great anxiety of mind which his case naturally pro- 
duced ; and though he was attended by three eminent physicians 
from Wakefield and Leeds, he gradually sank and died at the very 
time when his labors were being crowned with success, his case 
having passed through the House of Lords, the Herald's Col- 
lege, and received the signature and seal of the queen, and he 
had only to go to London to ' sufi"er recovery,' but which his fail- 
ing strength would not permit. His next heir, Edward Godfrey 
Leman, will have comparatively nothing to do in order to obtain 
possession of this immense property. Sir John's dying request 
was, that every person who had lent him money should be speedily 
paid, which request his executors will see punctually complied 
with as soon as possible. He was interred on Monday last, in a 
manner suitable to his rank, at Sandall, near Wakefield."

loir John Leman, knight, citizen, sheriff and alderman, 
lord mayor of London, 1616, member of the Fishmon- 
gers' Company, was born 1544, died 1632, left by his will 
dated 8 July, 1631, the manor of Barnes {alias Good- 
man's Fields), in St. Bottolph's, White Chapel and 
Stepney, London, To the use of his nephews Robert, 
Thomas, Philip and William Leman, and their heirs male, 
in succession, and in default to his niece, Ann Barber, 
and her heirs male and in default to his own right heirs for 
ever. Likewise the manors of Wardeboys, in Hunting- 
donshire, and Rampton, in Cambridgeshire, did he will 
to his youngest nephew William. 

William Leman, nephew and heir of Sir John Leman, 
and son of William Leman, of London, came into posses- 
sion of the said estates and to the possession of the 
manor of ISTorthow, county Hertford, by purchase, as 
follows: Upon the death of the Countess of Wanouk, 
William Lord Russell came into possession of the 
estate at I^orthaw, and after having granted part of the 
common, amounting to 268 acres, 3 rods, 17 perches, by 
two grants, in the years 1618, and 1622, to the king, 
James I, for the enlargement of his park (Theobald's), 
sold this manor, estate, and rectory to William Leman, 
Esq., in the year 1632. 

'This William Leman was created a baronet under a 
patent granted by King Charles 1st, and bearing date 
3 March, 1665.

He was treasurer of war, and represented the county 
of Hertford in parliament. Upon his death in the year 
1667, his eldest son William was his successor in title and 
estates, holding the same under indenture by his father Sir 
William Leman, bearing date I4th and 15th June, 1655. 
To trustees in trust to the heirs male of his body, the 
eldest always to take before the youngest, and in failure 
of issue male, the estates were to go to his own right heirs. 
This Sir William, 2d Bart, was sheriff of Hertfordshire, 
1676, and was elected to represent the borough of Hertford 
in parliament in the 2d year of the reign of King William 
and Mary. He died possessed of the estates, 18 July, 1701, 
and was buried iu the chapel at ISTorthaw, 28 July, 1701. 
Mansel Leman, eldest son of Sir William, 2d Bart., having 
died in the lifetime of his father, his son William, and 
grandson of Sir William, 2d Bart., was the successor in 
title and estates. Under the will of Sir William Leman, 
2d Bart., dated 17 ^November, 1692, he apppointed his 
brothers, John Leman, Edward Leman, and Tanfield 
Leman, trustees to his estates, in trust for this grandson 
William, and they were to receive the rents of the manor 
of Barnes [alias Goodman's Fields) in order to pay his 
daughters' portions and other legacies. This trust he 
directed should be performed for one hundred years, and 
in failure of male issue of his grandson William, the 
estates iu Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertford- 
shire, Middlesex, and London, were to go to his own right 
heirs for ever. Edward Leman, ^one of the trustees, died 
in 1700, and Tanfield Leman died in 1704, leaving John 
Leman the only trustee, who died in 1729. This John 
Leman had a son John, who was absent at the death of 
liis father. Sir William Leman, 3d Bart, died possessed of 
the estates, but without issue, on 22 December, 1741, and 
was buried in the chapel at Northaw, 2 January, 1742. 
To fully show the manner and disposition of his estates, 
the following is a true copy of his will, dated 1 ISTovember, 
1712, as extracted from the registry of the prerogative 
court of Canterbury: 

" In the name of Grod, amen. I, Sir William Leman, Baronet, 
of Northaw, in the county of Hertford, having my sound and 
perfect reason (^praised be God), do make this my last will and testa- 
ment. First, unto thy hands, Lord, I commit my soul, trusting 
in the goodness of Thy mercy for the pardon of all my sins, and in 
the merits of my blessed Saviour and Eedeemer, Jesus Christ, and

By the death of Lucy Leman, sister of Sir William, 3d 
Bart., in the year 1745, all the issue of Mansel Leraan, son 
of the 2d Sir William and father of the last Sir William, 
became extinct, and the estates passed into the possession 
of Richard Alie, who thereupon took the surname and 
arms of Leman. He died in 1749, without issue, and by 
his will, bearing date 6 November, 1745, and proved 19 
July, 1749, he gave the estates to his sister Lucy Alie. She 
died, and was buried in the chapel atlSTorthaw, 8 October, 
1753, leaving the estates to one John Grainger, who there- 
upon took the surname and arms of Leraan. This John 
Leman, alias Grainger, died without issue, at Bath, 29 
September, 1781, and was buried at Wardboys, in Hunt- 
ingdonshire, on the 11th October, 1781. He left the es- 
tates to his wife, with a reversionary interest to William 
Strode, Esquire. The widow, Dame Leman, alias Grainger, 
afterwards married this William Strode, and died without 
issue at Bath, 15 December, 1790, and was buried with 
her first husband, at Wardboys, on the 29th day of the 
same month, and William Strode, esquire, died on the 
21st July, 1809. The estate of J^orthaw was, pursuant to 
a decree of the Court of Chancery, bearing date 17 Au- 
gust, 1810, sold by auction on the 21th and 25th days of 
October in that year, and was purchased, together with the 
living or donative of IsTorthaw, by Patrick Thompson, Es- 
quire, of Turnham Green, in the county of Middlesex, 
who was the possessor in 1821. The value of these im- 
mense estates, now in Chancery, and including the manor 
of Korthaw, with the properties in the funds, that are 
awaiting the rightful heirs, is estimated at four million 
pounds sterling (twenty millions dollars).

L Sir Robert Umfreville, knight, Lord of Tours and

he came into England, and who in the 10th year of his 
reign gave him the forest of Riddesdale with all the 
castles, manors, lands and woods, pastures, waters and 
pools which were formerly possessed by Mildred the son 
of Akman, lord of Riddesdale, and which came to the 
king upon his conquest of England, to hold the same by 
the service of defending that part of the country from 
thieves and wolves with the sword which king William 
had by his side when he entered ITorthumberland. 

By that grant he had also authority for hearing, determining, and 
judging all pleas of the crown as well as others happening within 
the precincts of Riddesdale by any proper officer for the time 
being according to the laws and customs of the realms.

solidos upon the assignment of the scutage on those who 
sent not in their certificates of the fees they held of this 
Odowell, a monk of Tynemouth, grievously complained 
about that time for his exactions upon his neighbors to 
repair the roof of his castle Prudhoe, which he pre- 
sumed to do because he was the chief person in that 
county and partly through the interest he had at court 
by a great man having married his daughter. In the 
20th Henry II, his castle of Harbotell was taken by the 
Scots, and his castle of Prudhoe besieged, but Robert 
de Stuteville, then sheriff of York, with the help of some 
northern barons timely relieved it. 

In 23d Henry II, he was one of the witnesses to the king's arbitra- 
tion between the king of Castile and Sancho, king of Navarre.

Richard I, gave £100 to the king for remitting that fine 
which he had made with the bishop of Durham, when the 
county of Northumberland was on th^ ^' hop's hands and 
that he might enjoy the king's favor though he did not 
go into Ireland in that expedition then made thither. 
In 7th Richard I, he stood indebted to Aaron, the Jew, in 
the sum of £23 6 8 for which his land in Turnay was en- 
gaged. In 5th John he had a grant of divers lands in Rid- 
desdale. In the 14th John, the times being then turbulent, 
he delivered up his four sons in hostage with his ca: tie of 
Prudhoe to secure his fidelity, so that in case he should 
thenceforth transgress, all to be forfeited, and his body to 
be disposed of as a traitor's, nevertheless so little did he 
regard this his great obligation, he joined the barons in 
arms, 17th John, for which his lands were seized and given 
to Hugh de Balliol ; but soon after Henry III beggp to 
reign, and the times becoming more calm and quiet^he 
had restoration of his castle^of Prudhoe notwithstancrjng 
the king had no confidence in him or regard. He,lhe 
king, discovered that' he forfeited his caStle of Prilraoe,

to the sheriff of Northumberland to impanel a jury of 
twelve knights of that county to view, and having done 
so to destroy whatever had been added thereto in point of 
fortification since the war. He held the baronetcy of

Henry met him. In 17th Henry IH, doing his homage, 
also had livery of the lands of his cousin, Matthew de 
Torrington, who died without issue. In 24th Henry III, he 
gives a fine of 100 marks over and above his scutage to 
be freed from attending the king in Gascoigne. Died in 
Passion week. 29th Henry III, he gives a fee. He was

same. In 43d Henry III, being then of age, upon the col- 
lection of the scutage of Wales, he paid £11 12 for five 
knights' fees, and a half and a fourth and the twentieth 
part of the fees of Matthew de Torrington. He held the 
manor of Prudhoe, likewise Riddesdale by the royal power. 
In the 49th Henry III, being then in arms with the barons, 
for awhile he did no mischief, but in 3d Ed. I, Walter de 
Swethorpe came to the king and made a sad complaint 
against him, setting forth that after the end of the troubles, 
and peace being proclaimed and published by the king, 
Henry III, this Earl Gilbert did seize upon him and keep 
him in prison in the castle of Harbottel, until he had given 
him 100 marks. The king, therefore, directed his precept 
to two persons to hear and determine this injury. He was

PART 11. 



At what time Richard began to institute measures for 
his removal to America does not appear ; but in the 5th 
Charles I, A.D. 1629, he sold to one John Gower two 
messuages, agarden, orchard and divers lands arable; also a 
meadow and pasture, all at ISTorton Mandeville, in the 
parish of Ongar, county of Essex, and about the middle of 
August, 1631, embarked with his wife and children in the 
ship Lion, William Pierce, master, for Kew England, 
taking their departure from the port of Bristol. We 
are informed, that there went in the same ship, Martha 
Winthrop, the third wife of John Winthrop, at that time 
governor of New England, the governor's eldest son and 
his wife and their children ; also Eliot, the celebrated apostle 
of the Massachusetts Indians ; and that the ship's passen- 
gers consisted of about sixty persons all told, and, after 
being ten weeks at sea, arrived atNatascot, having lost none 
of their company but two children ; and that as the wind 
was contrary, the ship stayed at Long Island, but the go- 
vernor's son went on shore, and that night the governor 
went on board the ship, and remained on board overnight. 
The next morning, November 2d,. the wind being fair, the 
ship made anchor before Boston, and on the 4th of No- 
vember all the passengers landed, the ship giving them a 
a salute from six or seven cannon. 

What sought they thus afar? 

Bright jewels of the mine ? 
The wealth of seas ? the spoils of war ? 

They sought a faith's pure shrine. 

Aye, call it holy ground, 

The soil where first they trod ; 
They have left unstained what there they found, 

Freedom to worship God. 

On landing, the captain, with his companion in arms, 
entertained them with a guard, and gave them welcome by

the salute of maujguns; and the greater portion of the 
people of the near plantations went to receive them and 
brought or sent for many days a great store of provisions, 
such as fat hogs, kids, venison, poultry, geese, partridges, 
etc. ; and we are further told that such joy and manifesta- 
tions of love had never before been seen in 'New England ; 
and it was a great marvel that so many people and such an 
abundance of provisions could be gathered together in so 
few hours notice. On the 11th day of ISTovember, a day of 
thanksgiving was held in Boston in commemoration of the 
event. 

•Richard Lyman first became a settler in Charlestown, 
Mass., and with his wife united with the church in what is 
now called Roxbury, under the pastoral care of Eliot, the 
apostle to the Indians; he became a freeman at the Gene- 
ral court, 11th June, 1635, and on the 15th of October, 
1635, he took his departure with his family from Charles- 
town, joining a party of about one hundred persons, who 
went through the wilderness from Massachusetts into Con- 
necticut, the object being to form settlements at "Windsor, 
Hartford and Wethersfield. He was one of the first settlers 
at Hartford. " The journey from Massachusetts was made 
in about fourteen days time, the distance being more than 
one hundred miles and through a trackless wilderness. 
They had no guide but their compass, and made their way 
over mountains, through swamps, thickets and rivers, which 
were not passable but with the greatest difficulty. They 
had no cover but the heaver-^ nor any lodgings but those 
which simple nature afibrded them. They drove ia ith them 
one hundred and sixty head of cattle, and, by the way, sub- 
sisted in a great measure on the milk of their cows. Mrs. 
Hooker wasjborne through thewilderness on the shoulders of 
the men. The people carried their packs, arms, and some 
utensils. They were nearly a fortnight on their journey. 
This adventure was the more remarkable, as many of this 
company were persons of figure, who had lived in England 
in honor, affluence and delicacy, and were entire stran- 
gers to fatigue and danger. — TrumbuWs Colonial Records. 
The party first struck the Connectiquot, the Quirmiiukut, the 
long river in East Windsor near the Scantic river, and began 
their first settlement, on the west bank of the Connecticut 
in Windsor called by the Indians, Manutineang. 

Richard Lyman, on this journey, suifered greatly in the 
loss of cattle. He was one of the original proprietors of 
Hartford, and there is little doubt that he and his wife 



36 Lyman Genealogy. 

Sarah formed a connection with the first church in Hart- 
ford, of which the Rev. Thomas Hooker was pastor. His will 
of 22d of April, 1640, is the first in the valuable collection 
of Trumbull, and stands, Record, i, 442 and 443, and fol- 
lowed by an inventory of his estate. All the children are 
named in his will, and his daughter Phillis is called the 
wife of William Hills. He died in August, 1640, and his 
name is inscribed on a stone column in the rear of the 
Centre Church of Hartford, erected in memory of the first 
settlers of the city. His widow, Sarah, died soon after- 
wards. 

Richard is reported to have begun life in the New World 
as a man of "considerable estate, keeping two servants." 
In an account in the Massachusetts Historical Collections, of 
the moneys paid out of the common treasury of the colony, 
is found the following item: "Paid to Goodman Lyman 
for a fat hog for to victual the pinnace sent for the taking 
of David Bull £3 lO-s. 0. Goodman was the common title 
of the age for gentleman or Mister. - This was doubtless 
Richard Lyman who victualed thus the pinnace. 

The following extract is copied from the record of Eliot, 
the apostle, in his own hand writing : " Richard Lyman — 
he came to Kew England in the 9th month, 1631. He 
brought children, Phillis, Richard, Sarah, John. He was an 
ancient Christian, but weake, yet, after some time of tryal 
and quickening he joyned the church; w — n the great 
removal was made to Connecticot, he also went, and under- 
went much afiliction ; for, going toward winter, his cattle 
were lost in driving, and never were found again ; and, the 
winter being cold and he ill-provided, he was sick and mel- 
ancholly; yet after, he had some reviving through God's 
mercy, and dyed in the year 1640." 

Richard Lyman's name is on the list of the original pro- 
prietors of Hartford in 1636. His relative portion of the 
laud obtained from the Indians was a fair average of that 
of the other proprietors. Of the purchase, he received thirty 
parts, one or two on the list receiving two hundred parts. 
The land of the sepropi'ietors extended westward to Farm- 
ington. The house lot on which Richard, settled as 
appears on the ancient chart of Hartford for 1640, was on 
the south side of what is now Buckingham street, between 
Main and Washington streets, the fifth lot from Main 
street west of the South Church and bounded apparently 
on Wadsworth street either on the east or the west. 



ElCHARD AND HIS FaMILY IN AMERICA. 37 

The following extract is taken from the public records 
of the Colony of Connecticut by J. H. Trumbull: "At a 
meeting of the General Court Sept. 5, 1639, Eichard 
Lyman complayneth against Sequassen for burning upp 
his hedge which, before Mr. Governor, formerly he pro- 
mised to satisfy for, but yett hath not done it. Saquassen 
appeared and promised to pay within four days, or else an 
attachment to be granted." 

The will of Richard Lyman, the first on record at Hart- 
ford, is dated 22 April, 1640. The inventory of his personal 
property was made 6 of Sept., 1640. In the interval be- 
tween these dates, he must have d. at the age of 60 years. 
Sarah, his wife d. before the presenting of the will at court, 
Jan., 1642. 

His will and the inventory are as follows : 

[From Colonial JRecords, vol. i.] 

Hartford, Conn. 

The last Will and Testament of Richard Lyman, being in p'fect 
memory, I glue unto my wife all my houseing & lands dureing her 
life, and one-third p'te of my lands to dispose at her death amongst 
my children as shee pieaseth, and I giue to her all my moueable 
goods, as Cattell and houshold stuffe, and all other impliments or 
mouables. And the other two p^ts of my land I give to my elder sonne 
Richard, and to his heires forever, and if he dy without an heir, 
then I giue yt to my sonne Robert, and to his heires forever. For 
my son Richard my mynd is that the Cattell I have formerly giueu 
him that he shall enjoy. To my daughter Sarah, besids the Cattell 
I formerly haue giuen her, my will is that my wife shall pay her 
twenty pounds to yeres after my death. To my sonne John Lyman 
I giue him thirty pownds, to be paid him by my wife, att two & 
twenty yeres of age, and the hoggs that I formerly haue giuen him, 
I giue unto my wife, and if he contends w''' her and will not be

shee should not pay him the thirty pownds. To my sonne Robert, 
1 giue twenty fower pownds, to be paid him at twenty-two yeres of 
age; and to my daughter Fillis, the wife of Willia Hills, I giue

Dated the 22d of Aprill, 1640.

"Probate Court this 27th of Jan. 1642. 

" The will and inventory of Richard Lyman decea^ied, is 
brought into court. John Moody makes oath that it is the 
last will of said Richard ; and also the noate then brought 
in is the noate of the widow Lyman deceased. The several 
parties present at the presenting of said will agree that John 
Lyman if he live, will be 22 years in Sept. 16, 1645; Robert 
Lyman 22 in Sept., 1651." 

From the death of their father until their settlement in 
Northampton , little is known respecting the sons of Richard^ 
Richard^, John and Robert. They were taxed A.D. 1655, in 
Hartford, in a rate assessed to build a mill. They probably 
removed the same year to Northampton, where, in De- 
cember of this year, Richard was chosen one of the select- 
men. He sold his father's household at Hartford in 1660. 
He and his brother, John, were m. before their removal to 
Northampton. 

Richard^ m. Hepzibah, daughter of Thomas Ford of 
Windsor. She was sister of the wife of Elder John Strong 
of Dorchester, Windsor and Northampton, the patriarch 
of the Strongs, whose genealogy has recently been pub- 
lished in two large volumes. Her 2d husband was 
John Marsh of Hadley, Mass. Richard resided some time 
in Windsor, owned land there, and occupied some of the 
land of his father Ford " in East Windsor near the Hart- 
ford line." He appears to have been a man of decided 
character and influence. Immediately on his removal to 
Northampton he was appointed one of the iirst selectmen 
chosen in that place, and through his short life was engaged 
in public business. He died June 3d, 1662.

28. Dea. Caleb Lyman^, Esq., son of John, and grandson 
of Richard,^ was born at Northampton, Sept. 2d, or 3d, 1678, 
and resided in Boston. He was one of thirteen from the 
Old North Church who organized the New North Church of 
that city and was one of the first deacons of the New Church. 
This enterprise was begun in 1712. Its original families 
were " substantial mechanics " who built a church of small 
dimensions as the record is " without the assistance of the 
more wealthy part of the community, excepting what they 
derived from their prayers and their good wishes." The 
church was dedicated May 5, 1714. It was a custom of the 
churches of New England then publicly to ordain both rul- 
ing elders and deacons. The New England version of the 
Psalms was continued in use in this church until 1755. 
It was then changed for Tate and Brady's version ; not long 
after this the practice of reading and singing the psalms 
line by line, alternately, was abolished or discontinued. 
These facts, given in Drake's History of Boston, are presented 



Richard and his Family in America. 41 

as a part of the record of those scenes in which our vener- 
able ancestor was a prominent actor. 

Deacon Lyman died at Weston, Mass., Nov. 17, 1742, in 
the 65th year of his age after an ilhiess of twelve weeks. 
A sermon was preached on the occasion by the Rev. William 
Williams of that place, a distinguished preacher, whose 
praise was in all the churches in the eastern part of the 
etate. Of this sermon a copy is still extant from which 
the following extracts are taken. After characterizing him 
as " a kind, tender and most loving husband, of a sweet, 
pleasant and cheerful temper, and an amiable pattern of 
the virtues of the married state — good and useful in all 
the relations which he sustained both in church and 
state," the preacher proceeds : 

" Having used the Office of a Deacon well, he was, many 
Years since with other pious and worthy Brethren, chosen 
to assist the Pastors of that Church in their watching over 
and regulating the Flock, in which Service I am well informed 
he was greatly assisting, by his prudent Care, Inspection and 
Vigilance, his kind visiting the sick and afflicted, warning 
and rebuking the unruly and disorderly. He was a very 
ministerial Man, honoring and befriending upon all Occa- 
sions, his spiritual Guides, who greatly loved him and 
heartily bewailed the Breach, made upon them. 

" In his military Capacity he was a Man of firm Courage 
and Resolution, of which he gave early Proofs ; of steady 
Loyalty, a Lover of good Order and military Accomplish- 
ments. 

" As a Justice of the Peace, he was concerned and studious 
to suppress Vice and Profaueness, and to promote Order, 
Righteousness and Peace. 

" He wasakind, courteous and loving Neighbor, a faithful 
and obliging Friend, a prudent Peace-Maker, a Hater of 
Strife and Division. 

"As through his Industry, Frugality and honest Dealing 
he had acquired a considerable outward Estate, so he was 
ready to improve it for the Good of others, willing to distri- 
bute, ready to communicate, very courteous and hospitable in 
his House where many, especially Ministers of Christ, have 
been often entertained and refreshed." 

"In his lingering Illness his usual Reply to Inquiries of 
his Health was ' Waiting upon God ;' ' As God wills.' A 
short time before his Death, when his Wife wished him a 
good Night, he replied, I wish you a comfortable Repose, 
and when you wake may your Thoughts be of God and 



42 Lyman Genealogy. 

Christ and Heaven, may your Heart be filled with the Love 
of God, and the Joys of refreshing Rest, and may God 
bring you to his heavenly Kingdom. Amen." He died 
childless and his lineage became extinct at his decease. 

He left a legacy of 500 pounds for the use of the pastors 
of the church and their widows. 

Robert, Lyman youngest son of Richard^ is reputed to 
have been a sportsman, devoting much time to fishing, 
hunting, trapping, etc. Roberts' Hill and Roberts' Meadow 
in Northampton are said to have taken their names from him 
as being his favorite place of resort. From public records 
it appears that he discovered the lead mines of West- 
hampton. 

He was one of the original purchasers and proprietors of 
the tract of land now occupied by the city of Newark, 
N. J., asis indicated by the following extracts from the early 
records of that place, kindly furnished by S. H. Congar, Esq., 
a distinguished antiquary of Newark. 

On June 24, 1667, forty-one of the then present inhabit- 
ants, among whom was Robert Lyman, subscribed " with 
their own hand unto the two fundamental agreements, to- 
gether with twenty-three of the party from Branford. On 
the principles of these agreements, our town on Pesayak 
river was to be governed." The settlers of 1666, 1667, thus 
uniting, proceeded to make "a sure list" of every man's estate. 
Robert Lyman was set down at £285, or with a deduction 
of one-third made to every man £190. May 7, 1668, the 
common fence was proportioned to every man's estate and 
lands within the same. Robert Limon has 44 rods. — Jan. 
1, 1669, '70, Robert Limon in the division of salt meadow 
lot, drew No. 26. — Feb. 21, 1670-1, at a second division of 
salt meadow he drew No. 29. — May 26, 1673, "after due 
preparation and solemnization for it," the town agreed to 
draw their lots in a second division of upland, Robert Limon 
had lot 31. Feb. 6, 1677-8, another proportioning of the 
fence was made and one rod offence was required for two 
acres, one rood, and twenty poles of land. Robert Limen 
of this fence had 3 rods and 3 feet. In Oct., 1681, another 
division of the fence was made, but in this his name does 
not appear. In 1684, from a deed on record in the ofiice 
of the secretary of state at Trenton, it appears that Robert 
Lymon of Massachusetts sold lands in Newark to Jasper 
Crane. In August, 1675, 107J acres were surveyed for 
Robert Lymon, in seven parcels, home lot, upland, and

meadow, as described in the record of surveys, for Newark, 
and on these acres at a half-penny per acre there is now due, 
if unpaid to the lords proprietors or their heirs, a sum they 
will never get. 

" Robert was also a proprietor of Orange, and the 
heights of theWatchung mountain, then a rich champagne 
country peopled with deer, elk and bears, and other crea- 
tures with many a fair rising, and prospects all green and 
verdant." A city of beautiful and princely villas. This 
investment of Robert could not have been larg-e, for 
the whole tract was received July 11, 1667, in exchange for 
" a few handfuls ofgunpowder, and some lead, axes, breeches, 
blankets, guns, kettles, etc. Subsequently the whole slope 
of the Watchung on the Orange side waspurchased for " 2 
guns, 3 coats and 13 cans of rum..'' 

Mil ford, Guilford, Brandford and New Haven, in Con- 
necticut, contributed their portion of the people who were 
to go into this laud of " many fair rising forests and 
meadows," and " be of one heart and consent with God's 
blessing in endeavoring to carry on other spiritual concern- 
ments, as well as their civil and town affiiirs according to 
God and godly government." 

None of the Connecticut emigrants were allowed to vote 
or hold office in the new colony, unless they were " mem- 
bers of some or other of the Congregational churches," and 
it was many years before this sectarian restriction was re- 
moved. But then, these people and their descendants have 
made a good record. Wherever the page of American 
history is brightest — there the names of these sturdy peo- 
ple reappear. This little group that nestled so harmoni- 
ously down in the Orange valley, and whose log huts 
dotted the romantic slope of Watchung mountain has sent 
out scores and hundreds to fill the highest places in the 
various departments of science and art, at the bar, in the 
pulpit, in the medical profession, in literature, in the 
senate, in colleges; they have been the pioneers of trade, 
merchant princes, builders of cities, the defenders of their 
country through every war, stern patriots — the very '■'■vim " 
of the nation. 

Those who took up land on the mountain were Robert 
Lyman, Samuel Swayue and John Baldwin, 1675 ; Thomas 
Johnson, John Ward, Anthony Oliff, Joseph Harrison, 
1679. Matthew Williams at the time occupied a tract on 
on the mountain, and afterwards exchanged some Newark 
property with the heirs of George Day for the tract on

whicli he fixed his residence, and whicli now bears the name 
of Williamsville. 

In May 20, 1684, Robert Lyman and Hepzibah his wife, 
of Northampton, Mass., sold to Jasper Crane for £8 14s. Sd. 
44 acres bounded on the north-west of the mountain. The 
original document is still extant by which Robert appoints 
Sarah Davis, the widow of " his cousin John Ward," 
to settle his affairs in Newark, he being in Northampton; 
and that she accomplished the business satisfactorily. 

The signature of Robertis associated with others of North- 
ampton, in an etibrt to restrain and suppress intemperance 
by preventing the introduction of ardent spirits and cider 
into the town. In the latter part of life he became reduced 
in property, and appears to have been subject to some 
mental aberrations which subjected his family to peculiar 
trials. Li March, 1691, representations of the state of his 
family were made to the county court, in which he is de- 
scribed as being under some "disteraperature," and unable 
to manage his affairs. Similar representations were re- 
peatedly made, and the family committed to the care of the 
selectmen of the town. There is no authentic record of 
Robert's death. The tradition in Northampton is that he 
became a victim to his roving, sporting habits, and was found 
in the forest frozen where he had fallen in pursuit of his 
game. He m. Hepzibah Bascom.

the male line at their death, became extinct. 



Richard and his Family in America. 45 

The settlement of IS'orthampton commenced in 1654. 

In May 6, 1653, a number of persons petitioned the 
General Court of Massachusetts to grant them liberty to 
possess, plant and inhabit this place on the Connectiquot 
river, called Nonotuck, as their own inheritance ; represent- 
ing that it was a place " suitable to erect a town for the fur- 
therance of the public weal and the propagation of the 
gospel." Twenty-iive families manifested a desire to settle 
there, " many of whom were of considerable quality for 
estates, and fit matter for a church." '• Townsmen," 
selectmen, were chosen 1656. In March 18, 1657, the 
people voted to employ an agent to obtain a minister, and 
to devise means to prevent the excess of liquors used. 

Nonotuck the Indian name for ^Northampton, including 
the four Hamptons, was purchased in 1653, by John Pyn- 
chon, Esq., for the original planters, 20 in number, from 
Wawhillowa, Nenessehalant, Nassicohee, and four others styled 
" the chief and proper owners, who all bargained for them- 
selves and the other owners, by their consent." The con- 
sideration for the purchase w^as, " one hundred fathoms of 
wampum by tale, and ten coats, besides some small gifts in 
hand paid to the sachems and owners; and also for plough- 
ing up 16 acres of land on the east side of Quonnccuiicut 
river the ensuing summer." Sept. 28, 1658, the sachem 
Umpauchila complained to the commissioners that he had 
not received so much as he expected. He was accordingly 
paid an additional sum, and he, by a new deed, released his 
title to the township. 

The inhabitants lived in peace with the Indians 22 years 
until the famous war with Philip. 

The original purchase extended 10 miles on the river 
and 10 westward, equal to 100 square miles, and included 
the 4 Hamptons. 

The old family homestead, on which Richard settled, was 
adjacent to the original farm of the Rev. Ebenezer Mather, 
the first minister of ITorthampton. This included the 
ground now occupied by the Shop Row, on the south side 
of Main street. It appears to have included the home- 
stead owned and occupied by Dr. Hunt a half century since, 
and the Shop Row, eastward, with the grounds of Gov. 
Caleb Strong. 

The original homestead of Richard became the property 
of his 2d son John, of his son Benjamin, of his son Joseph, 
of his son Elisha and of his son Theodore, who sold it in 



46 Lyman Genealogy. 

1827, after it had been in the possession of the family 
172 years, through six generations. 

The first Moses, grandson of Richard^ and son of John^, 
bought one-half of the Mather farm, and his son, Capt. 
Moses, bought the other half. The whole became the pro- 
perty of Seth, the 9th child of Capt. Moses. He was unfor- 
tunate in business and sold in several parcels the old home- 
stead for the payment of his debts, some time before 1790, 
and after it had been in possession of the family about 
100 years. This farm in 1842, had upon it three dwelling 
houses, besides the stores and shops in Shop Row, 15 or 20 
rods in extent. 

The property of Judge Hinckley and of the Hon. Theo- 
dore Strong, is said to have been a part of this farm. 

l^orthampton being from the beginning the home of the 
Lyman family, the cradle from which they have arisen to 
overrun the whole land, some early notices of them are 
inserted from the records of the town, illustrative at once of 
their influence and of the customs of these olden times : 

In May, 1654 — was the petition for the laying out of 
l^onatuck — and yet as early as " Feb. 19, 1660, seven per- 
sons were appointed to transcribe the old records^' Among 
these was Richard Lyman. 

At a town meeting in 1657 — " It was then voted and 
agreed that William Holton is desired to solicit the general 
court & to act and propound several cases that concern the 
town." — 1 — 2 — & 3 to "desire advice what course to 
take about the preventing of excess in liquors in coming to 
our town, & of cider; all those present at the making this 
note, did promise to consent to it, in case the major part 
of the inhabitants of the town do consent to it. " 25 
names were given, & among them that of Robert Lyman. 

1658, Jan. 4 — " 80 acres of land laid out for the ministry." 
A committee of 5 to do it, Richard Lyman was second. 
Jan. 10 — Richard Lyman was one of the three selectmen, 
and in March, appointed as " Commissioner to end small 
causes." 

1660, May 15 — Mistake about land upon the "pine 
plain " — which was drawn for Robert Lyman, also Richard 
Lyman's portion helped to make up the mistake. 

Other commissions include the names of Richard and 
John Lyman.

The sumptuary laws enacted to restrain extravagance 
in dress are an institution illustrative of the spirit of the 
times. Theee laws ordered " that persons whose estates did 
not exceed 200 pounds, and those dependent upon them, 
should not wear gold or silver lace, gold or silver buttons, 
bone lace above 2.s, per yard, or silk hoods or scarfs, upon 
penalty of 10s. for each oftense." " At the March court 



Richard and his Family in America. 49 

1676, the jury presented 68 persons from 5 towns in Hamp- 
shire, 35 wives and maids, and 30 young men, some for 
wearing silk and that in a flaunting manner, and others, 
for long hair, and other extravagances to the offense of 
sober people." 

One of these was Hannah Lyman, of ^Northampton, 16 
years of age, dau. of Richard^ deceased. The record shows 
that this young girl possessed an independent, determined 
will, 80 characteristic of the Lyman family, flaunting her 
silks before the court, when arraigned for this very offense. 
She was prosecuted for wearing silk in a flaunting manner, 
in an offensive way and garb, not only before, but when 
she stood presented, not only in ordinary, but in extraordin- 
ary times ; she was fined lOs. 

The following racy original phillipic forcibly illustrates 
the spirit of the times : 

" I honour the woman that can honour herselfe with her attire a 
a good Test alwayes deserves a fair margent ; I am not much of- 
fended if I see a trimme far trimmer than shee that wears it ; in a 
word, whatever Christianity or civility, will allow, I can afford with 
London Measure ; but when I heare a nugiperous gentle dame in- 
quire what dresse the Queen is in this week; what the nudiuster- 
tian fashion of the court; I mean the very newest; with egge to 
be in it in all haste, whatever it be ; I look at her as the very giz- 
zard of a trifle, the product of a quarter of a cipher, the epitome of 
nothing, fitter to be kickt, if shee were of a kickable substance, than 
either honour'd or humour'd. To speak moderately, I truly confesse, 
it is beyond the ken of my understanding to conceive how those 
women should have any true grace, or valuable vertue, that have 
so little wit, as to disfigure themselves with such exotick garbes, as 
not only dismantles their native lovely lustre, but transclouts them 
into gant bar-gesse, illshapen, shotten-shell-fish, Egyptian Hyero- 
glyphicks, or at the best, into French flurts of the pastery, which a 
proper English woman should scorn with her heels ; it is no marvel 
they weare drailes on the hinder part of their heads, having nothing 
as it seems in the forepart, but a few Squirrils' brains to Kelp them 
frisk from one ill favored fashion to another." — Simple Cohlcr of 
Ayaioam, pp. 26-27. Palfrey's Hist. 

It may give a clearer insight into the social and domestic 
life, in these primitive days to note the current prices of 
some of the staple articles of sale collected chiefly from 
the History of Hadlejj : Butter, 6 cents per lb.; beef, 2| ; 
Mutton, 2 ; flour, $3.50 per bbl. ; wheat, 2s. Qd. ; PeiiS, 2s ; 
Corn, l5. 6d. ; oats, Is. 6d. ; Shad, in 1733, 1 penny ; in 1737 
*' good fat shad," 2 pence each ; 1767, 100 shad were sold in 
Hadley, at 1 penny each ; for salmon in Hartford, 1700, 1 
penny a pound ; in Northampton 1740, at the same price ; 



50 Lyman Genealogy. 

Horses, 1675 to 1700, 15 to 25 dollars ; 1750 to 1775, 7 to 32 
dollars. The most valuable horse in the county in 1754, was 
prized at $661 ; working oxen, 1680 to 1715, 17 to 28 dollars 
a yoke ; cows, 1700, 6.50 to.9 dollars ; 1775, 7 to 11 dollars ;

turkeys, 1717; in Northampton, Is. 4:d. each ; piiieons from 
3 to 6 pence a dozen ; venison, 2 to 2| pence per lb. Choice 
land, 11.00 an acre, out lots, 25 cents; the salaries of cler- 
gymen ranged from 60 to 80 pounds — 150 and 200 dollars,

Two of the sons of Richard^, Richard^, and John^, had 
each three sons who had issue of several sons ; and from 
these six grandsons of Richard^ have descended a numerous 
posterity which have overspread the land. The three grand- 
sons, sons of Richard^, are Richard^, Thomas^ and John^ 
The three sons of John^ are John^, Moses^ and Ben- 
jamin^ Richard^ represents the Lymans in Lebanon, Conn. 
Thomas^, the Lymans in Durham, in the same state ; the 
two Johns' had their habitat chiefly in ISTortliampton, 
South Farms and liockanum, Moses is represented by the 
Lymans in Goshen and Salisbury, Conn., and in South- 
ampton and Boston, Mass. East and West Hampton were 
the primary centres of emigration for the descendants of 
Benjamin^, the sixth and last grandson^ The descendants 
of each of these six grandsons will be represented under as 
many subdivisions or parts in the order of seniority, each 
constituting one part in the general*' divisions of this work.

I. LINEAOE OF SAMUEL^, ELDEST SON OF KICHARD^. 

Richard,^ the eldest son of Richard^, b. in Windsor, 
Ct., in 1647, m. in ^Northampton, May 26,1675, Elizabeth, 
daughter of John Coles, of Hatfield, Mass., and resided in 
IsTorthampton until 1696, when he removed to Lebanon, 
Ct., where some of his descendants have continued to 
reside until the present time; but others have gone out over 
all the land. They early emigrated to Vermont : from that 
state some passed into Canada; others westward took their 
course ; and onward still, as new territories and states have 
arisen, quite to the Pacific ocean. 

Richard was not an original proprietor in the Five Mile 
purchase in Lebanon, which was the beginning of the set- 
tlement, but an allotment was deeded to him, which he 
subdivided to his children, sopie of whom settled in the 
town and some in the Crank, now Columbia. Here the 
father himself lived, and died iJ^ov. 4, 1708. Ko monu- 
ment marks his resting place. 

Children, Fourth Generation :

7 7 David, b. Nov. 28, 1688; childless. 

8 8 Josiah, b. Feb. 6, 1690, d. 1760, aged 70 years; left a son, 

Josiah ; d. in his 27th year, without issue. 

9 9 Anne, no date ; no record whatever is given of this child. 

She was born in Lebanon, the others in Northampton. 
The homestead of Richard - was sold by his son on his 
removal to Lebanon, to Preserved Clapp of Northampton.

beth Smith, who d. Feb. 28, 1751. Samuel d. Feb. 4.

According to another tradition, or record, the wife of 
SamueF was Elizabeth Fowler^ but the improbability that 
the names of the wives of both father and son were the 
same, casts suspicion on the supposition, and the records 
of Suffield justify us in ascribing to the son Elizabeth 
Smith as his wife, Lebanon, Ct.

105 3 Carleton, M.D., b. Jan. 21, 1849. When a schoolboy he was 

very much criticised for ungrammatical speech and the 
subject of ridicule ; but only saying " We shall see," he 
persevered, and at the age of 21 was admitted to the bar. 
Taking " Life vrith an aim," as his motto, the day is not 
distant when his scoffers will envy him in that eminence 
to which they will never attain.

159 5 William, b. Oct. 12, 1781 ; resided in Malone, N. Y. 

160 6 Bliphalet, b. 1787; resided in Vernon. 

Another record states that he had " four sons, Chester, 
John, Samuel, Gad and Lemuel." Perhaps these state- 
ments may be reconciled by supposing that he had sons, 
Chester and John in addition to the five specified above. 

We now give the record of SamueP, son of James^, and 
brother of William of Malone, K. Y., and of Eliphalet of 
Vernon, Conn.

313 Enoch Lyman^, second son and fifth child of EzeUel\ 
at the age of 24 ; m. Margaret Crego, USTov. 4, 1819, in 
the town of Turin, N. Y. His wife, at her marriage, was 
but 15 years of age. She was born Oct. 31, 1804, in Conn., 
and had, with her father's family, migrated from thence to 
Lewis Co., ]^r. Y. Enoch with his young wife, being in 
poor circumstances, went boldly into the forests upon 
Tug Hill, in Turin Co., IST. Y., and commenced house- 
keeping in a log cabin of his own construction. By perse- 
vering industry, they made themselves a good, well fur- 
nished home in that region, now celebrated for butter- 
making. Some years after they settled there, their log cabin 
with most of their household goods caught fire, and burning 
to the ground in the night time, they barely escaped with 
their little ones alive. A new and commodious house, which 
they were then building, was, however, at this time nearly 
completed and soon after occupied by his family. Being 
a good hunter and fond of sport, in those early days he 
furnished his table with the choicest cuts of venison from 
the adjacent forests, frequently varied with a roast of black 
bear. Many hours of his old age were spent in narrating 



Descendants of Richard. 73 

thrilling stories of the chase ; and none more thrilling or 
roEQantic than true. He was a natural mechanic, and truly 
termed " Jack of all trades." Though young, he served 
some months in the war of 1812 and received his military 
warrant therefor. His wife was a genuine helpmeet, and, 
as was the custom in those days in that country, spun and 
wove the flax and wool of their own growing, and by the 
labor of her own hands kept her large family warmly 
clothed. Enoch Lyman maintained an exemplary reputa- 
tion as a citizen, and, at the time of his death, Dec. 8, 1853, 
aged 58 years, was a member of the old school Baptist 
Religious Society, in Turin.

395 LoEENZO Branch, the second son of Enoeli and 
Margaret Ljman, m. Mary E. Hawkins, at Waukesha, 
"Wisconsin, Sept. 19, 1858. Being naturally studious in liis 
youth, acquired a liberal academical education, and at the 
age of nineteen commenced the study of law under the 
tuition of a prominent lawyer, W. 8. Hawkins, at his office 
in Waukesha, Wis. After pursuing a thorough course of 
law reading and obtaining a practical acquaintance with the 
forms of practice ia the courts, he was admitted to the bar 
as an attorney at law in all the state courts of record and 
United State courts. Under the excitement of the then 
recent gold discoveries in California, he went to that country 
"overland" in 1849, and there delved for the precious 
metal with various fortunes for some eight years, some- 
times panning out of his ore one hundred dollars of the dust 
to the pan and often pocketing a handsome nugget; then 
for a change and possessing his father's great love for the 
chase, would go out among the almost countless variety 
of wild game with which the country abounded — pitch his 
tent under a live oak and follow a hunter's life and partake 
of a hunter's fare for months together. At the end of 
nine years he returned to Wisconsin, married Mary E. 
Hawkins, the only daughter of his former law tutor, and, 
as his law partner, resumed the practice of law. He 
there held many offices of public trust and honor, and was 
a staunch republican from the birth of that party forward. 
In 1864 he removed with his family, and settled in the 
Gallatin valley in Montana Territory, engaged in farming, 
stock raising and the practice of law, and greatly prospered 
therein. In 1869 he was appointed by President Grant, 
register of public lands for that territory.

I STILL LIVE. 



O, Tliou^ whose love is changeless, 

Both now and evermore ; 
Source of all conscious being : 

Thy goodness I adore. 
Lord, I would ever praise Thee 

For all Thy love can give ; 
Bntmost of all, O, Father ! 

I thank Thee that I live. 

I live ! O ye who loved me ! 

Tour faith was not in vain ; 
Back through the shadowy valley 

I come to you again. 
Safe in the love that guides me, 

With fearless feet I tread — 
My home is with the angels — 

O, say not I am dead. 

Not dead 1 O, no, but lifted 

Above all earthly strife ; 
Now first I know the meaning. 

And feel the power of life — 
The power to rise uncumbered 

By woe, or want, orcare ; 
To breathe fresh inspiration 

From pui-e, celestial air ; 

To feel that all the tempests 

Of human life have passed, 
And that my ark, in safety, rests 

On the mount at last. 
To send my soul's great longings, 

Like Noah's dove abroad. 
And find them'swift returning. 

With a sign of peace from God ; 

To soar in fearless freedom 

Through broad, blue, boundless skies 
And catch the radiant gleaming 

Of love-lit angel eyes ; 
To feel the Father's presence 

Around me, near or far, 
And see His radiant glory 

Stretch onwards, star by star ; 

To feel those grand upliftings 

That know_not space nor time, 
To hear all discords ending 

In harmony sublime ; 
To know that sin and error 

Are dimly understood. 
And that which man calls Evil 

In undeveloped good ; 

To stand in spell-bound rapture 

On some celestial height, 
And see God's glorious sunshine 

Dispel the shades of night ; 
To feel that all creation 

With love and joy is rife ; — 
This, O my earthly loved ones. 

This is Eternal Life ! ■ 



There, eyes that closed in darkness 

Shall open to the morn ; 
And those whom death had stricken, 

Shall find themselves new-born ; 
The lame shall leap with gladness. 

The blind rejoice to see ; 
The slave shall know no master. 

And the prisoner shall be free. 

There, the worn and heavy-laden 

Their burdens shall lay down ; 
There, crosses, borne in meekness, 

At length shall win the crown ; 
And lonely hearts that famished 

For sympathy and love, 
Shall find a free affection 

In the angel-home above. 

O, children of our father I 

Weep not for those who pass. 
Like rose leaves gently scattered. 

Like dew-drops from the grass. 
Ay, look not down in sadness, 

But fix your gaze on high ; 
■ They only dropped their mantles, 

Their souls can never die. 

They live ; and still unbroken 

Is that magnetic chain. 
Which, in your tearful blindness. 

You thought was rent in twain. 
That chain of love was fashioned 

By more than human art. 
And every link is welded 

So firm it cannot part. 

They live ! but O, not idly 

To fold their hands to rest, 
For they who love God truly. 

Are they who serve Him best ; 
Love lightens all their labor. 

And makes all duty sweet ; 
Their hands are never weary, 

Nor way-worn are their feet. 

Thus by that world of beauty, 

And by that life of love. 
And by the holy angels 

Who listen now above, 
I pledge my soul's endeavor. 

To do whate'er I can 
To bless my sister woman, 

And aid my brother man. 

O, Thou, whose love is changeless, 

Both now and evermore. 
Source of all conscious being ! 

Thy goodness I adore. 
Lord, I would ever praise Thee 

For all Thy love can give ; 
But most of all, O, Father, 

I thank Thee that I live.

patriot warrior, is entitled to the grateful remembrance 
of his kindred and his countrj^men. At the decease of his 
father in early childhood he was apprenticed to an uncle 
to learn the trade of tanner and shoemaker. At the age 
of 16, the earliest period at which he could be enrolled in 
the Revolutionary army, he enlisted as a private and served 
under Gen. Washington to the close of the war. He was 
one of the prison guard when Major Andre was led out 
to execution. 

After retiring from the army he returned to his native 
place and industrial pursuits, and m. Mrs. Jerusha Hunt, 
of Lebanon, who d. Nov. 17, 1838. Of his ten children ' 
the first four daughters were b. in Lebanon. He then 
removed to Vermont, and became a resident of Yergennes, 
after some two years at Monkton. His occupation through 
life was that of tanner and currier. 

He was a large, well proportioned man, about six feet in 
height, of lofty, commanding presence. Few men in the 
army made so noble an appearance in a military dress. 
His stately person was but an appropriate representation of 
his lofty patriotism. "Great in soul, he stood unmoved amid 
the fluctuations of parties and the strife of demagogues; 
with true independence his manly spirit soared above 
the meanness of duplicity and the baseness of dishonor. 
He was sober in his habits, humane of heart and peaceable 
in life, a kind husband and father, and a useful citizen. 
His unblemished character defies the invidious attack of 
envy, malice and detraction." 

He was never plaintift'or defendant in any case in court. 
His character was unimpeachable enough to remain un- 
unscathedeven in the political campaign of the war of 1812, 
whenpartizan zeal ran mad. The only impeachment of his 
character was that he allowed his business to drive him 
instead of maintaining the mastery of it himself. 

After some months service in the war of 1812, Major 
Lyman returned to his home, but when the enemy invaded 
the state of Kew York he volunteered in the service of his 
country and continued in that service at Plattsburg, until 
the retreat of Provost. While at Plattsburg, by fatigue 
and exposure to the severity of the weather by night and 
by day, he lost his health and returned home, and after a 
short time, expired at the age of fifty-three years, at his 
own house, 14 days after his engagement in the battle 
of Plattsburg. 



Descendants of Kichard. 91 

He left but a small property, having a large family 

without funds requisite for a large business. He had five 

sons and five daughters of whom three of each sex are still 

living, the most of whom are residents in the western states.

94 Lyman Genealogy. 

He was 35 years a member of the Congregational Church in 
Hanover, in the town of Marshall, and for many years one of its 
deacons. 

He could always be relied upon. As a church member and church 
officer he was sure to be found promptly on all occasions in his 
place, and both ready and anxious to do whatever he could for the 
cause of Christ which he loved with his whole heart. In storm and 
shine he was always the same resolved, consistent, active servant of 
his master. 

When the cause of anti-slavery and of temperance was in ill odor 
with the great mass of the community around him he stood forth at 
once as their advocate. 

He was also generous in his habits of giving, and sometimes even 
as it seemed to some of his best friends, beyond his ability. 

His habits of body and mind were active and fresh to the last, and 
he was dismissed from earth without any of the slow decay of age, 
spending one sabbath joyfully on earth and the next more joyfully 
in heaven, greatly missed by the little band of church members that 
worship now without him in the same sanctuary. 

While his death is precious in the sight of the Lord, the memory 
of his life of piety and religious fervor will be ever precious to them. 
„ He had never tasted liquors or tobacco or even tea or coffee, in all 
his life.

Elizabeth Collins of the same place, b. 1748; d. Feb. 4, 
1826, aged 80. He was an example of the strictest in- 
tegrity, benevolence and piety. In middle life he became 
the subject of insanity, a constitutional tendency peculiar 
to several branches of the Lyman family. His derange- 
ment took the form of brooding melancholy, in which for 
many months he uttered no audible word. In this state 
of mind he was induced by much persuasion to attend a 
regimental review in Lebanon. From this he returned 
apparently a sane man. He conversed freely, returned to th e 
duties of life and for 18 years enjoyed usual health. He re- 
turned from a journey in feeble healtli, became again de- 
ranged, and d. Nov. 16, 1804, aged 60. 

These twin brothers resembled each other in form and 
features so nearly that they were with difficulty distin- 
guished the one from the other. In their mental charac-

beautiful identity and unity.

storm to a friend's house, but remained in a shed by night, 
then secreted herself in a swamp where she remained with- 
out food until Wednesday, when in extreme exhaustion she 
crept to a friend's house, and by careful nursing was re- 
stored to health both of body and mind. For many years

slie continued in good health ; removed in 1828 to the state 
of IsTew York; became again insane and so continued until 
her death, Aug. 28, 1849. 

174 Hannah, b. Dec. 22, 1773; d. Dec. 2, 1846. Of a 
reserved, retiring disposition, she lived 17 years by herself 
in hereditary apartments in her father's house; in Oct., 
1845, she went to reside with her brother Benjamin ; be- 
came insane and so continued until her death. 

175 Artemas, b. Aug. 15, 1776 ; m. Abigail Barston, 
March, 1802. In 1811 removed to Onondaga, thence to 
Sweden, N. Y.; there he became a raving maniac on the 
subject of religion. Conceiving himself to be a messenger 
of the Lord, when not chained to his cell he would go from 
house to house, in the dead of night, calling upon the 
sleepers to awake and flee from the wrath to come. His 
children, consisting of two sons and two daughters, removed 
with him to Michigan where he d. in the autumn of 1843. 
In periods of his sanity he officiated as deacon of the church 
where he resided. The history of his children is unknown. 

176 Benjamin, b. Oct. 30, 1781; m. June 9, 1803, Lydia 
Barston, and lived through life, almost 70 years, in the 
same house, within a few rods of the place of his birth. 
Mrs. L. d. April 15, 1863, a model wife and mother. As 
her children, nine in number, gathered around the coffin 
to take the last look of the deceased, and wept, the voice of 
the venerable and bereaved husband was heard in clear ac- 
cents, saying : " Suppress your tears ! It is the Lord's 
will. He gave. He hath taken away. Blessed be the 
name of the Lord." The eldest son responded : 

"A shade of gloom is o'er us cast : 

A silent voice to us has spoken ; 
The silver cord is loosed at last, 

The pitcher at the fountain broken. 

And all seems sad ." 

Benjamin, d. Oct. 12, 1871, aged 90 years, less 18 days. 
His nine children were all present at his funeral — all but 
one over 50 and three over 60 years of age. 

Benjamin Lyman was akindand affectionate husband and father, 
revered and beloved by all his children. Such was his moral and 
religious influence in the training of his household, that none of 
them have departed from the Christian faith of their father, and all, 
in a high degree, have maintained blameless lives before the world,

verifying the words of the wise man : " Train up a child in the way 
he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." He 
possessed a good constitution, a strong intellect, a retentive memory, 
and a kind and benevolent heart. In manners he was modest, digni- 
fied, and gentlemanly. His religion was of the Puritan stamp, not 
spasmodic, but even in its course, every day alike. He was con- 
sistent and liberal in his views, and yet firm, in what he believed to 
be right, and in contending earnestly for the faith once delivered 
to the saints. He was a sweet singer, and his presence and help were 
often solicited from abroad in times of religious revivals. In 1820, 
he assisted the Rev Alfred Wright, missionary to the Choctaws, 
in forming the Sunday school in Columbia ; was chosen its first su- 
perintendent, and held the office some 14 or 15 years in succession. 
After his resignation of that office, he became the teacher of a large 
adult Bible class, and held it until the infirmities of age rendered it 
proper for him reluctantly to retire from his charge. He was an 
efficient helper to his pastor, and in his absence, visited at the bed- 
side of the sick and dying, sometimes attending funerals, and con- 
ducted, with ability, religious meetings in the conference room. When 
destitute of a pastor he led the exercises at the church on the sabbath. 
He possessed a strong, clear, and sonorous voice, and the old people 
loved to hear Dea. Lyman read and pray, as well as sing the songs 
of Zion. One lady more than 80 years of age, in looking upon his 
form after death, placed her hand upon his brow and exclaimed 
" 0, how many earnest prayers I have heard from that good man's 
lips." He was chosen deacon of the church at 32 years of age, and 
officiated in that capacity until disabled through the infirmities of 
age. He had but a little education from the schools, but was natur- 
ally a student, and improved every opportunity to gain knowledge 
from books and from observation. In the prime of life he was an 
efficient member of the committee for visiting schools. Poor in 
this world's goods, but rich in the endowments of nature's God, he 
.served his day and generation well. He retained his faculties 
nearly unimpaired, until almost four score years of age, after which 
his mind gradually decaying, he returned to second childhood, and 
at last to partial insanity.

the exception of attending the common district school, such 
as they were 50 years ago, about four months in the winter 
season, until he was eighteen years of age, he was wholly 
self-educated. His occupation until he was more than 30 
years of age, was farming in the summer and teaching 
school in the winter. His tastes not according fully with 
farming, he decided, even at this late hour of his life, to 
change his occupation, and chose the practice of medicine 
for his future livelihood. He commenced the study of medi- 
cine in 1855 by himself; read and examined the works 
of the different schools, so far as he could obtain them, and 
finally adopted the theory and practice of the then so-called 
Thomsonian system, known now as the Eclectic practice, 
and entered upon its duties Dec, 1837, in the city of Nor- 
wich, Ct. At 30 years of age he had no library, with 
the exception of a few school books. Since then he has 
gathered a w^ell assorted library of nearly 150 volumes. 
His practice has been a living one, and he has been blest 
v^ith more than an average success. He removed from l^or- 
wich to Willimautic, Dec, 1852, and followed his profession 
there with success until April, 1866, when he removed to 
the city of Hartford, where he still remains in a successful 
practice. He was superintendent of the Congregational 
Sunday school in Willimantic, 10 successive years, and also 
an active member of the church during his stay there.

in Willimantic, Ct. 
The following lines, occasioned by her death, were written by her 

father : 

I cannot make it seem that she is dead. 
Profusely though my stricken heart has bled. 
I cannot make it seem her face is hid, 
No more to smile, beneath the coffin's lid. 
Or, that her voice, so sweetly tuned, is hushed 
And all her hopes of longer life are crushed ; 
Or, that her form lies now below the sod. 
While upward soared the spirit has to God. 
From memory's urn a thought oft steals away, 
Through numerous years, back to the eventful day 
When first I looked at her, my first-born child ; 
With gladness almost passionate and wild — 
Back to the time when she encradled lay, 
And fell disease was wasting her away. 
But it was staid, and she was left to grow 
To riper years, and more of life to know. 
With pain and anguish marked were all her years. 
And watered often were with flowing tears ;

And yet I cannot make it seem tliat deatli lias come, 

And called her hence to yonder spirit home. 

Oft as I tread the room she called her own, 

Now drear and silent, and so very lone. 

Where all is seen just as when in her care, 

I think I'll see her — but she is not there. 

So when I bend over her sacred mound. 

Where dust with dust is mingling under ground. 

Some still, small voice, seems whispering in my ear : 

" Look upward, now, for lo, she is not here ! " 

As day recedes with coming shades of even, 

And as I turn my wandering thoughts to heaven. 

And bend the knee and upward look in prayer, 

'Tis good to think my daughter's home is there.

Cushman, of Brookfield. After residing a fewyears in West 
Randolph, moved to Potsdam, IST. Y., and bought a farm. 
He, with his wife, united with Presbyterian church in 1820. 
In 1833, with his family and relatives he moved to Sangamon 
Co., Illinois. In 1844 he removed with his family to Min- 
nesota. '' From the organization of the Presbyterian 
church, of Stillwater, in 1849, he was a ruling elder, held 
in great esteem by the church and community. He was 
ah active, useful and consistent Christian, exceedingly aifa- 
ble in disposition, firm and unflinching in his principles.

Frontier Life, Reminiscences, etc. — When the elder Corne- 
lius moved there, the country was a wilderness. Where the 
city of Still water now stands — a city of 6,000 or 7,000 inha- 
bitants — there were only three men, and one log shanty. 
While opening his farm, which was some four miles from 
what is now the city of Stillwater, his family resided there, 
camping out in haying time, to cut the wild hay on the prai- 
ries ; they fell short of provisions, andhaving nothing butiive 
or six pounds of pork left, his sons went to Stillwater to 
obtain supplies. The wolves, attracted by the meat, came 
around his bed; once or tv^ice he drove them away ; finally, 
he put the meat under his pillow for safe keeping, but the 
wolves carried it off before morning-.

He pnt up a cabin on the bank of the St. Croix in the 
spring of 1847, and moved up his family. He brought 
with him a sow and eight pigs, and they finding themselves 
in a strange place, took refuge under the house. That 
night the family were awakened by a terrible squealing, and 
the oldest son, going out to see what the trouble was, be- 
held a wolf making off with one of the young pigs. He 
immediately gave chase, but the wolf was too spry for him 
and escaped. He had but just returned when the pigs 
sounded the alarm again. He immediately issued forth with 
intent to kill, but the enemy had retired in good order. 
Storrs returned to the house, concluding that the wolves, 
had determined to have the pigs at all hazards, as they did, 
before morning. The dam, bereft of her young, returned in 
the morning to the city in grand disgust with frontier life. 

The Indians at this time were very numerous, but gene- 
rally were friendly toward the whites. But the Chippewas 
and Sioux were continually at war among themselves. 

A party of Sioux came to the house one night just at 
dusk and wanted supper. They had been on the war path 
and had the scalps of some ten or a dozen Chippewas whom 
they had killed, that afternoon, some six or seven miles 
above on the Apple river. No one was at home except 
Mrs. Lyman. She refused them admittance, but told them 
they might build their fire out in the yard, which they did ; 
and after supper, they danced their scalp dance, nearly all 
night. One of the members of that war party is now a 
missionary among the Sioux.

quired to renounce protestantism, or sacrifice all that the 
heart holds dear on earth, he made the sacrifice for con- 
. science sake. His property, which was ample, was con- 
fiscated. His wife, with three young children, was torn 
from his embrace. Thus destitute and desolate he was 
banished to a distant foreign country, but he who holds the 
winds in his fist directed the ship to the shores of England 
where he was landed. His wife, knowing nothing of his 
fate, managed to transport her little charge also to England. 
There, landed on the beach, she sat neglected while others 
were received by friends or shared the kindness and hospi- 
tality of strangers; then raising a loud and bitter cvy, she 
exclaimed: Is there none here who can speak the French 
language? Attracted by the cry and the accents of his 
native tongue, a stranger went to her relief and sank into 
the embrace of his lost, despairing wife, by this surprising 
providence receiving her with their little ones as alive from 
the dead ! Once more united, an unbroken family in a fo- 
reign land, like their Divine Master, they had not where to 
lay their heads. Still the subjects of penury and of perse- 
cution they took refuge in the wilds of America, the home 
of the oppressed. 

The names of their three sons b. in France, were Fran- 
cis, Ephraim and Joshua. Other children were born to them 
in America, from whom a numerous posterity have de- 
scended worthy of their pious and distinguished ancestry.

creature, there being no roads for conveying provisions. 
He Lollowed out a login which to salt his meat; and with 
the few things he could bring on his back, commenced , 
housekeeping. On returning to his shanty one day, he 
found a wolf on the roof eating the heifer's skin which he 
had thrown there, to be, as he supposed, out of the way of 
such pilferers. At another time, he came home and 
noticing, at a little distance, that the door was slightly ajar, 
he cautiously advanced, and pushing wide open the door, 
an Indian sprang up, rifle in hand, and quickly leveled the 
deadly instrument at his breast, at but a few feet distant ; 
but before the Indian could fire Mr. Lyman sprang upon 
him, wrenched the rifle from his hands and quickly over- 
powered him. The Indian had learned enough of our 
language to find words to plead for his life ; and, although 
he was an old offender, he was dismissed in peace. 

Mr. Lyman was a man of good talents who took a promi- 
nent part in all the aflairs of the new settlement, particu- 
larly all that pertained to the welfare of his fellow m* n. 
The poor found in him a helping, sympathizing friend. 
His fund of information was extensive and varied. A man 
of sterling integrity : he repeatedly filled ofiices of trust 
and honor. He was born 1784 or 1785, and died 1842 la- 
mented by all who knew him.

time when the west meant western New York state, after- 
wards in north-eastern Ohio, and in the evening of his 
life in northern Illinois, he was always one of the foremost 
in the good cause. His wife, one of Berkshire's most 
gifted daughters, always held up his hands; and his home, 
though sometimes only a log house, was always graced by 
her presence and presented the charms of a refined 'New 
England home. His latch string was always out, and 
hundreds of weary brother ministers have found their 
toilsome life cheered and made bright by only a briet 
sojourn under his hospitable roof. He was gifted with a 
very rare fund of anecdotes, always appropriate, and the 
writer has often, when a boy, sat for hours and listened, 
as he and some dear old classmate or other cherished 
friends sat around that cheerful fire, and told over the 
days of long ago. He died at the good old age of 71, 
beloved and respected by all who knew him.

14 Norman Lyman^ 6th son of Davi<f, 1787-1850, who 
was b. in Torringford, Litchfield Co., Ct., possessed remark- 
able and sterling traits of character, deserving a record in 
this place. 

Dr. Lyman was b. in the parish of Torringford, in Litch- 
field county, on 6th of September, 1787, and d. in the 64th 
year of his age. He early distinguished himself at school by 
his great proficiency, being for one year at school, after 
which, by his unassisted application, he prepared himself for 
entering the junior class at college. After obtaining his 
profession, with the cares of a family, and the pressure of 
a large professional business, he found time to prosecute 



140 Lyman Genealogy. 

his classical and matbematical stadies, until he had attained 
the full college course, and made himself one of the most 
perfect scholars of his time. At the age of 24 years, Dr. 
Lyman was licensed to practice medicine, by a board of cen- 
sors ; and in 1831, received the honorary degree of doctor of 
medicine, from Yale College, at the recommendation of the 
president and fellows of the Connecticut Medical Society. 
Dr. Lyman was endowed with faculties of mind which 
fitted him for eminence in his profession. He possessed 
great powers of memory. When he commenced tjae study 
of the Latin and Greek languages, he committed to memory 
the whole grammar and'small dictionaries of these languages ; 
and, what would have been to other men a task too irksome 
to be borne, was to him an easy attainment; his memory 
was as retentive as it was strong; for we are told, that 
when a boy, in learning and reading the Bible and Psalm 
Book, they were so fully committed, that he could recite 
most of the Testament and every psalm and hymn in the 
Hymn Book, by giving him the number or first line. And 
in reading the Greek Testament, with a Latin translation 
he so read U, that he could recite the whole Testament in 
the Latin, Greek, and English languages, to the time of 
his death, and was so familiar with the Greek and Latin 
classics, that he could recite whole pages, often putting 
to the blush those who had received a full collegiate edu- 
cation, by his accuracy in classical literature. His strong 
and retentive memory, made him the repository of all the 
great facts and discoveries, both in the natural and medi- 
cal world, for the last forty years. It enabled him to 
gather up all the different systems and theories of medical 
writers, and the most successful treatment of diseases, from 
the earliest annals of medicine, to the present time. He 
remembered every case of any importance, which he had 
ever seen, and most of which he had heard. He practised 
successfully, for about seventeen years, in Glastenbury, Con- 
necticut, and for the last twenty-two years, in the town 
of Warren ; making thirty-nine years in which he had con- 
stantly been engaged in the ordinary duties of his pro- 
fession. He had thus accumulated a vast fund of medical 
knowledge, and tested the correctness of difterent systems of 
the treatment of diseases, by his own large experience. 
His mind was, therefore, one great store-house of know- 
ledge, in which nothing was ever lost, but so arranged that he 
could at all times, make those treasures available, by calling 
them to his aid, on any emergency. His apprehension had

the rapidity of electricity. He saw at a glance the whole 
case before him iu all its bearings ; and his far-seeing eye 
detected at the outset, the point of danger, and he guarded it 
with the most consummate skill and fidelity, until the 
danger was past. Hence, in the result of a case, he was 
never taken by surprise.

In 1789, he removed with his wife and a young child from 
Lebanon to ^Norwich, Yt,, with an ox team. In their new set- 
tlement they endured the hardships incident to pioneer life, 
living in a log cabin for several years, and then removing 
into their framed house, in December, before it had been 
enclosed with boards without, or duly finished within to 
protect them from the inclemency of the winter. Here, in 
frugal piety, they lived to a good old age, and died in the 
hope of heaven through grace divine, leaving all their 
children in the enjoyment of the same Christian hope.

From Mr. John Lyman we have the following account of frontier 
life in Potter Co., Penn. William Ayers moved into Potter county, 
the fall of 1808, six miles east of Condersport, the county seat of 
Potter Co. In 1809, Major Isaac Lyman obtained the agency of the 
land of John Keating & Co., who owned 130,000 acres of land in 
the county. Mr. Lyman had 150 acres given him, and each of hissons, 
50 acres. The first fifty families that settled on their land had fifty 
acres each by settling thereon, building a house and clearing five 
acres and residing thereon five years, then they were entitled to a 
deed, and as much more land as they wished to purchase at two 
dollars per acre. In Nov., 1809, Mr. Lyman came from Tioga Co., 
into Potter Co., 42 miles, and laid up a log house twenty by twenty- 
two feet, put on a roof of shingles four feet long and built up the 
gable end with the same, split slabs out of pine logs, dressed them

"with a narrow axe and laid the lower floors, cut out a place for a 
door and openings for two windows, for two six lighted windows, and 
laid three-fourths of the upper floor ; this was the situation of his 
house when he moved into it the 16th of March, 1810, at night, 
with his family, consisting of ten in numher. There was not a bushel 
of grain nor any meat, except wild game, elk, deer, panthers, bears, 
and wolves; we had to haul our provisions from fifty to seventy-five 
miles over a very bad road, and some brought on pack horses ; where 
night overtook us there was our tavern, we made our own fires, 
cooked our own victuals, made our own bed on the ground of hem- 
lock boughs. The landlord was very generous, charged us nothing, 
but yet the hardships and privations were many. He was married 
the 10th of Sept., 1812, began life with nothing, having poor health 
for four years, has had a family of twelve children, and by the 
help of Grod is yet alive waiting for the Lord's time to call him home.

We give this family in Lock Haven, Pa., a place here 
because they seem to be related to the lineage of Major 
Isaac Lyman. 

The tradition of the family is that their grandfather Elea- 
zer was a son of one Major Lyman, an officer of the Re- 
volution, that this Eleazer, b. in Mass. m. Betsey Raymond — 
that he removed to Tioga Co., N. Y., where he lived a 
farmer until 1850. They had 3 sons and 6 daughters. 

One of these sons wasEleazer, Jr., the father ofthe present 
family, who m. Sally Payne said to be from Mass. The 
issue of this marriage was 4 sons and 2 daughters. He 
removed to Alleghany Co., and studied medicine, and then 
established himselfin Great Bend, Susquehannah Co., Pa., 
as a physician and surgeon. He was killed by his horse at 
the age of 42 in 1845. His wife d. in 1839. 

A sister of this Dr. Lyman m. Ex-Governor Blair of 
Michigan. 

The oldest son of Dr. Lyman, C. A. Lyman, Esq., a 
lawyer in Lock Haven, enlisted in 1861 as Capt. of a Co.,

in the 7th Pa. B,. C, and participated in many of the great 
battles ofthe Peninsula and the Potomac, and was promoted 
to the rank of Maj. and Col. He is 51 years of age and 
has a family of six children. 

The second son, C. E. Lyman, is a mechanic and manu- 
facturer. Another brother with himself and his son en- 
listed early in the war ofthe rebellion all distinguished for 
their bravery in many battles, the brother and son were killed 
when leading the forlorn hope in storming Fort Fisher. 
The surviving brothers were frequently raised in rank for 
their dauntless courage and effective service in many 
battles, never laying down their arms until victory was 
achieved and the rebellion quelled. 

Few families have a more patriotic and honorable record. 
Some one, we hope, more fortunate than ourselves, will 
be able to establish their true relations to their kindred, 
whom all the Lyman family would gladly welcome to their 
brotherhood.

geon to the Third U. S. Colored Regiment, being the 
first surgeon appointed to a colored regiment, by the 
president of the United States, and in accepting this 
position, joined hands with a brave set of ofl&cers, men 
who were not only willing to face the black flag, by the 
side of black men, but also to face public opinion that 
• their country might be truly free. He was at the battle 
of 2d Bull Run, Antietam, and on Morris Island, where 
many of the regiment were killed and wounded, in pushing 
forward our works, against Fort Wagoner, which it will

severe and protracted illness on account of which he was 
sent to Hospital in Beaufort, and in Jan., 1864, received 
an honorable discharge on account of physical disability.

13 William Lyman^, Jonathan^ Jonathan*, Richard?, 
Bichara^, Richard}, 1738-1827; m. Mary Parker of Lebanon, 
Feb. 12, 1761, "by Rev. Solomon Williams, D.D." . Re- 
sided in Lebanon, was a farmer, tanner and currier, also a 
shoemaker, &c. He was an esteemed member of the 
Congregational church, and during his latter days mani- 
fested the zeal, faith, and submission of a ripe Christian. 
In his advanced age, he was accustomed to go to church 
in a "one horse shay," driving for many years the same 
old black horse. The horse declined faster than his mas- 
ter, and was put upon the superannuated list, but his habits 
had become fixed and he would still go to meeting. If 
confined on the sabbath he manifested great uneasiness, 
and when the gate was opened, trotted down to the meeting 
house and stood at his post until the meeting ended ; -and 
then returned remaining in perfect contentment while 
going to church regularly on the sabbath. A horse in 
Amherst, Mass., well known to the author, for many years, 
conveyed an aged couple to meeting in a similar " shay" 
repeatedly going without a driver by similar force of 
habit, stopping at the horse block, then going to the stall. 

In the life time of Mr. Lyman a heated controversy arose 
in Lebanon about the location of a church, which illustrates 
the spirit of the times; and, with circumstantial variations, 
stands as an exampleof controversies often enacted in JSTew 
England, on similar occasions. 

In the height of their excitement one party set fire to 

the old " meeting-house," but failing in their object, the 

other party committed an equal sacrilege on the old church 

with their axes, breaking up the pews and hewing the

timbers. On the sabbath following, the contending parties 
met in the school house for public worship. Their pastor 
proposed to these discordant assailants of himself and his 
church to sing the 74th Psalm as paraphrased by Dr. Watts : 

Will Grod forever cast us off? 

His wrath forever smoke ■ 
Against the people of his love 

His little chosen flock ? 

How are the seats of worship broke ! 

They tear the building down ; 
And he that deals the heaviest stroke 

Procures the chief renown. 

With flames they threaten to destroy 

Thy children iti their rest, 
Come, let us burn at once, they cry 

The temple and the priest. 

The chorister, an active agent in the sacrilege, confused 
and trembling, set his pitch pipe, the tuning instrument of 
the day, upon B flat, and sounded the note, but had no 
voice to lead the song. The result was that two churches 
were erected a mile apart, and two feeble antagonistic as- 
semblies formed, who might have remained a powerful 
central church harmoniously meeting for worship in the great 
congregation age after age.

32 Eev. William Lyman^, D.D., of Millington, a parish 
in the town of East Haddam, Conn, son of William Lyman 
of Lebanon, Conn., b. at Lebanon, 6th Sept., 1764, educated 
at Yale College where he graduated m the class of 1786, 
served a brief term as tutor in his alma mater. He was a 
chaplain with the troops under Gen. Shepard, during the 
Shays rebellion. 

Dr. Lyman was a man of uncommon bodily strength ; 
and 288fe)S. weight. 

He settled in Millington in the year 1784, where he re- 
mained thirty-six years in an uninterrupted pastorate. He 
afterwards removed to western ITew York, where he con- 
tinued ministerial labors, in the churches of Mount Morris 
and Le Roy for a time. He died at Arcade, K. Y., in Nov., 
1832. 

At his installation in Millington he was quite young, in 
fact, and still younger in appearance. His trial sermon 
before the ordaining council, was highly satisfactory, in- 
somuch that a member ventured the suggestion that a more 
experienced hand than his had been employed upon it. 

Mr. Lyman was a good preacher and was made more 
impressive by the uncommon compass of his voice. He 
was never fatigued by speaking. He has been known to 
speak nine hours in a day. The power of his voice was a

quality that aided to individualize him. When it fell to 
him to preach the "election sermon" at Hartford, a gentle- 
man on his way to that city invited his neighbor in Far- 
mington to go with him to hear and see the proceedings. 

" 'No," said he, " I am very busy, but when the hour comes, 
I am going up into the mountain to hear the sermon" — 10 
miles distant. 

Dr. Lyman sat as a prince in his parish in virtue of the 
influence that he had fairly earned, and a remnant is still 
left of those who ardently cherish his memory. Many of 
his occasional sermons were published. Some of them re- 
main in the memory of his people. Upon a funeral occa- 
sion, when there was no preacher present, a lady who had 
committed to memory one of Dr. Lyman's funeral sermons, 
upon invitation, repeated it, and thus all the proper rites of 
the occasion were filled. He m. Rhoda Huntington, Dec.

Japan, son of Charles Otis Shepard and Rhoda H. Ly- 
man Shepard, of Arcade, K. Y. ; was b. at Arcade, 1842. 
He enlisted in the early days of the rebellion, and was soon 
promoted to a lieutenancy, in which capacity he served 
during the war. His aptness as a drill-master and clerk 
led to heavy drafts upon his energies. He returned home 
to Buffalo. He labored in the organization of the " frontier 
police, " and enstamped upon that organization the se?l of 
his genius. He became a colonel. He threw himself il.^o 
the canvass, which resulted in the election of Gen. Grant to 
the presidency. Under the administration to whose ac- 
cession he had contributed, he was appointed consul at 
Japan, to reside at Yedo. The running down of the 
U. S. ship Oneida off the coast of Japan, called the consul 
to vigorous but unsuccessful efforts to save the crew. In the 
disaster by explosion at Yedo, in which Missionary Cornes, 
his wife and child were destroyed, Consul Shepard ex- 
erted himself to better effect. When Hon. W. H. Seward 
visited Japan, the pleasure of entertaining him, on account 
of sickness in the family of the American minister, de- 
volved upon Consul Shepard; and thus, when Mr. Seward 
went into the presence of the Mikado, Mr. Shepard was 
also admitted — an honor never before attained by one of 
his rank. Mr. Shepard, though the youngest, is one of the 
most efficient and useful of American consuls.

83 Rev. Huntington Lyman'', was the 2d son of Rev. 
William Lyman, D.D., of Millington, where he was b. 
April 25, 1803. His parents desired to give him a colle- 
giate education, and to that end some progress was made 
in the study of the Latin classics. Pecuniary stringency 
following the war of 1812, however, interrupted the plan, 
and Huntington entered a clerkship opened to him by his 
older brother in Sparta, and in Moscow, ]^. Y. After 
completing his apprenticeship he became a partner of that 



Descendants of Richakd. 173 

brother, and pursued a prosperous business for seven years 
in China, 1^. Y. At this stage of his life he became in 
the military line, inspector of brigade. 

In 1831, the Amer. S. School Union being desirous to 
fill the valley of the Mississippi with Sunday schools, in- 
vited Mr. Lyman to enter their service and to have charge 
of the Sunday school depository at New Orleans ; which 
he did. The influence of the climate was unfriendly and 
compelled him after severe sickness to abandon his posi- 
tion and return to a northern latitude. 

On his way, he met at Cincinnati, friends who had 
gathered with the purpose of entering Lane Seminary 
which was awaiting the arrival of Dr. Beecher and other 
professors. The proposal was here niade to Mr. Lyman, 
to join those who were to constitute the first theological 
class of the new institution. Although the difficulties in 
the way of this step were great, they were overcome. 
After spending a short time in the preparatory course, 
Mr. Lyman was admitted as a member of the first formed 
class of that seminary, not on a college diploma but on the 
score of " general attainments." 

Two years of happy sociality and earnest study under 
beloved teachers ensued. 

American slavery was at that day an apple of discord 
and a theme of public debate. The institution was anti- 
slavery in all its parts, but it was divided upon the question 
of colonization. A great majority of the students were 
for unconditional abolition, and opposed to the scheme of 
colonization. This clifiference, through the action of the 
executive committee became the occasion of a rupture. 
The executive committee, persons unknown to the students 
prepared a code of laws which a majority of the students, 
thought oppressive, and decided not to enter for another 
term under them. Mr. Lyman was one of those who for 
this cause took letters of dismission. 

He immediately became a member of Oberlin Theologi- 
cal Seminary, where he completed his studies. He was 
ordained in 1836. He accepted a commission from the 
American Anti-slavery Society, and as a lecturer, performed 
for it, in stormy times, a brief service. Then he became 
pastor of a church in Bufl'alo, ]^. Y. In 1845, he re- 
moved to the territory of Wisconsin. As a home mis- 
sionary, he spent at Sheboygan the greater part of the 
fifteen years of his life in that region. Returning in 1860, 
to New York, he has up to this date, 1872, devoted him-

of a meeting of the Bible Society, at the City Hotel. At 
the hour appointed she was working her way through the np- 
crowd in the streets to the place appointed. Arriving at 
the hall, she found it already crowded. On descending, 
she met the usual throng in Broadway, all going, as she 
supposed, to the Bible meeting. Her own disappointment being is 

fresh in mind, she addressed first one and then another 3- 

group : " Tou can't get in." This address was only re- a- 

turned by a look of curiosity while the crowd swept on. ", 

Finding that her well intended efibrt made no impression, 3 

she said : " Well, try it if you will, but I've just been there, 
and the hall is full." Enfield, Conn.

17^ Lyman Genealogy, 

153 Joseph Lyman^, William^, Joseph^, William^, Jona- 
than^, Jonathan^, Richard?', Richard^, Richard^. The martial 
character of the sons of William Lyman of Iowa, is worthy 
of record. Three of his sons served against the rebellion 
with Iowa troops, bravely and with distinction. The two 
younger sons were not old enough to serve at the com- 
mencement of the war. 

Joseph, however, the eldest, enlisted as a private at the 
breaking but of the war. Failing to secure a position in 
the 1st Iowa Regt. of Infantry, the company to which 
Joseph belonged, became a part of the 4th Iowa Cavalry 
as " Co. E.'^ After serving as private and corporal of 
cavalry until Nov., 1862, a commission came unexpectedly 
from the Gov. appointing him adjutant of the 29th Regt. 
of Infantry, which he accepted. He was the youngest 
officer, and, with few exceptions, the youngest man in the 
Regt. The only vacancy occurring in the offices above him 
was that of major, to which by general voice, Mr. Lyman 
was promoted. In 1864, Maj. Lyman was in the staff of 
Gen. S. A. Rice, and was by the side of that officer when 
he received his mortal wound. During the last year of the 
war Maj. Lyman served as adjutant general in the staff 
of Maj. General F. Steele. Major Lyman was mustered 
out of service in 1865, after the surrender of the rebel armies. 
Desirous to retain him in the military service, a commission 
in the regular army was sent him which he declined. Maj. 
Lyman was in very active service which led him, with the 
exception of N. and S. Carolina and Va., into all the rebel 
states. Aside from frequent skirmishes the following is the 
list of battles in which he participated, Helena, Ark., 
July 4, 1863; Little Rock, Sept. 10, 1868; Terre Noir 
Creek, April, 1864; Prairie De Anne, April 1864; Cam- 
den, April, 1864 ; Saline River, April, 1864 ; Bluff Springs, 
Fl., March, 1865; siege of M,obile^ April 29, 1865. During 
more than four years service at the front Maj. Lyman was 
never wounded, though he had two horses killed under him. 

Sereno and William, brothers of the foregoing Major 
Lyman, becoming of sufficient age, enlisted in 1864 in Co.

19 Rev. Joseph Lyman'', D.D., of Hatfield, was b. 
April 14, 1749, at Lebanon, and was the son of Jonathan and ip 
Bethia Lyman. He m. Oct. 15, 1772, Hannah Hunting- • 
ton, dau. of Simon and Sarah of Lebanon, Ct. Graduated 
at Yale, in 1769, with high honors. After a popular tu- 
torship there, he was ordained 4th March, 1772, pastor of 
the Congregational church in Hatfield, Mass., where, for '■ 

over half a century he served the church and society, with ^ 

great ability, and wielded a marked influence among the ^ 

ministry and churches of western Massachusetts. He used 
to ascribe much of his pastoral success, to his wife, whose 
ruling aim seemed to be, to promote his usefulness. He 
was one of the most commanding men in the ministry, in 
his day ; and in nothing of a worldly nature, did he show 
more power over his contemporaries, than in giving shape 
to pulpit influence, during our Revolutionary struggle. His 
colleague, Rev. D.r. Waterbury, late of Boston, speaking 
of him, as he was in the last two years of his life, makes 
this just estimate of his character, and this is said after he 
had passed into a state of bodily infirmity, which, to use 
his forcible language, " gave to him, the aspect, somewhat, 
of a magnificient ruin. The heavy column, and the broad 
span of the arch, told, even in their dilapidation, the scale 
of grandeur, upon which the whole structure had been 
reared. The Roman cast of his features, his expressive 
eye, his simplicity of language, and manner, struck me 
very forcibly upon my first introduction to him." "This 
great and good man" d. March 27, 1828. He had seven 
children, only two of which survived him. 

For 56 years Dr. Lyman was pastor of the church in 
Hatfield ; a man of mark in his day, of great originality 
and decision of character, he exerted for many years a com- 
manding influence in the state, especially in ecclesiastical 
councils, in settling controversies in the churches and 
theological discussions; many candidates for the ministry 
resorted to him for instruction in theology. From 1823 
to 1826 he was president of the A. B. C. F. M.; the degree 
ofS. T. D., he received from Williams College. Many 
anecdotes are related of him illustrative of his character 
and influence, of which the following may be given : 

While he was ever true and faithful to the gospel, he 
was roused to great zeal and activity in promoting the re- 
volution which resulted in the independence of our country. 

He was associated with Caleb Strong and Isaiah Thomas 
in writing and publishing letters of the most stirring cha-

racter. ISTor did he fail in private, or in public, to exert 
all his powers in rousing and keeping alive the patriotism 
of the people. But his actions and his utterances, in this 
direction, did not fail to awaken opposition. A leading 
man of the parish was of different politics, and, of course, 
became indignant that his young minister should thwart 
and counteract him. Able to bear it no longer, he came 
one day into the parson's study, and, in an excited manner, 
exclaimed, "Mr. Lyman, I have gotten you here as my min- 
ister, and now you rise up against me. I shall not bear it." 
Mr. Lyman at once arose, assuming an attitude, at least 
as erect and commanding as his assailant, and said : " Sir, 
you have governed this town, and to a great extent, the 
county for a long time, but I now inform you there is one 
you will never govern." The rebuker, wrathful but abashed, 
hastened out Of the room. But to his credit, be it said, 
after a little time he returned with an apology, and showed 
his nobility by saying: "Mr. Lyman, I shall ever honor your 
independence, and be more your friend than ever on account 
of it." 

" Very soon after my own settlement in the ministry," 
says a cotemporary, " Dr. Lyman stopped for a few minutes 
at my house, saying as he came in, ' I am an Old Testa- 
ment man, and call on ministers.' This was the introduc- 
tion to my acquaintance with one whom I ever found 
cordial, interesting and instructive to an uncommon degree. 
What I particularly remember of his first call was, that 
after the door was quite closed at his departure, he came 
back and said, in a fatherly but most impressive manner, 
'You are beginning the ministry, and I want to give you 
one charge ; always make Saturday noon your last limit 
for the full preparation of your sabbath sermons. Do this 
that you may relax, and refresh yourself in the afternoon ; 
have your nerves in such a state that you can sleep; and 
be in a proper physical condition for the labors of the pul- 
pit.' 

" I will add that my own experience, and the contrary 
experience of many of my brethren, have fully confirmed 
me in the wisdom and importance of the rule thus given 
me at my front door, more than fifty years ago."

accordingly attended to the settlement, and found, that 
there were certain suras left unpaid for the last sixteen 
years, which several sums, with the interest upon each to 
the time of settlement amounted to the sum of three

225 Daniel Lyman'', M.D., was born in Woodstock, 
Ct., Sept. 5, 1784, and what is a little remarkable, was taken 
to church on the day of his birth — it being the sabbath — 
and baptized by his father Eliphalet Lyman who was pastor 
of the Congregational church in that village for 40 years. 
Daniel fitted for college in the Woodstock Academy, and at 
the time of his death was the only living memberof the first 
class which left that institution. He entered Yale about 
the year 1805. He stood high in that institution as a 
scholar, took an active part in debate and other exercises 
connected with some one of the literary societies which 
flourished there. During the latter part of his senior year 
he was attacked with an afl'ection of the heart, which ne- 
cessitated his laying aside his studies for some months, so

that he failed to graduate with his class. He pursued a re- 
gular course in the medical department of Dartmouth under 
the instruction of the celebrated Dr. Smith. He was a re- 
markably apt scholar to whatever department of study he 
turned his attention. He commenced the practice of medi- 
cine and surgery in his native village, about the year 1809 
or 1810, in which calling he had a wide and very successful 
practice for 40 years. He administered to the bodies of 
his fellow citizens of the surrounding region, for almost 
the identical period of time which it was the privilege of 
his honored father to prescribe for their spiritual maladies. 
He made a specialty of cases of epilepsy in the treatment 
of which he had remarkable success, having patients from 
every state of the Union. And he was not without honor 
in other departments : beheld the office of judge of probate 
for several successive terms, during which time he had the 
decision of several very intricate cases. One case in par- 
ticular on which he could get no light from high authority 
which he consulted, he at length decided according to his 
best judgment, which judgment was afterward confirmed 
and made the law of the state in such cases by legislative 
enactment. He had an almost intuitive perception and 
insight, into the merits of any matter brought before 
him. He was justice of the peace for many years. He 
feared no man. No flatteries, no bribes, no insinuations, 
no threats could move him a hair's breadth from what 
he considered a straight line. Of firm nerve, of undaunted 
courage, he was a terror to evil doers. He entered 
heartily into all matters of public, social, civil, or religi- 
ous interest. In temperance he early advocated the princi- 
ple of total abstinence, and delivered a stirring address 
in his own town in 1835, in which he advocated this plat- 
form as the only safe one. An earnest Christian, a zealous 
patriot, he possessed a clear head, a guileless heart, a 
tender conscience : he has left to his children the precious 
legacy of a good name. He was united in m. June 26, 1811, 
with Miss Frances M. Eldridge, of Brookline, Conn., and 
d. March 5, 1870. Woodstock, Conn.

Literary and Clerical Character of the Lebanon Lymans. 5 

This branch is represented in the ministry of every e 

church from the democratic Congregational to the imperial 
Roman Catholic inclusive. Two families have educated 
each two sons for the ministry; and another, three for the 
same office. Those only, who, with the control of moderate 
means, have battled with the task of educating publicly 
their sons, can appreciate the zeal and persistence required 
for its accomplishment. 

Almost, without exception, the Lymans have survived the 
severities of their curriculum, and emerged from their col- 
lege course, mens sana in corpore sano, sound in body and in 
mind. As a characteristic illustration it may be remarked 
that the colonial laws of college were very different from 
those which are borne by republican students of the pre- 
sent day. One of those old laws having a reference to the 
proper dignity of the seniors, allowed that class to exact 
menial service from the freshmen. The freshmen split 
wood, made fires, brushed boots, and carried parcels for 
their superiors. A pompous senior, as his classmate passed 
his door, said to him, " Lyman, as you are going by the ■ ^ 

cricket ground, please send me a dozen freslimen." Mr. 
Lyman executed the order to the letter and was at 
pains to wait until the full number of freshmen was found 
and marshalled. When they presented themselves at his 



188 Lyman Genealogy. 

door, the senior was taken aback by the array. All the 
errand he could make, was, the conveyance of his six 
pieces to the laundress. 

Other incidents of college life are omitted for want of 
space.

them, while few could command so great respect from those 
opposed to measures he advocated. His unremitting labors 
undoubtedly caused the acute disease which hurried him to 
the grave. With ordinary work to do, he seemed to have 
tlie constitution of an octogenarian, and himself expected 
long life. But he murmured not when the summons came — 
his life had been a preparation for a better sphere.

know and appreciate his labors. As a slight tribute to his 
memory, their corporate authorities passed each a series of 
resolutions, and attended his funeral at Middlefield. One 
of the 'New Haven resolutions was as follows : 

" Resolved, That in the death of David Lyman, the public 
at large are called upon to deplore the loss of a true man, emi- 
nently faithfol in the discharge of every duty; attending to 
eve"ry trust committed to his care ; genial, earnest, full of 
hope, inspiring others with his enthusiasm ; who carried 
to substantial completion that great enterprise, the Air 
Line Railroad, a work of inestimable benefit to this city, and 
which will ever endure as a monument to him, illustrative 
of his sagacity, perseverance, and indomitable energies." 

The magnetism of the man was something remarkable. 
He inspired all with whom he came in contact, with his 
own enthusiasm and with interest and confidence in him- 
self. He had that "hopeful, buoyant temper," that 
" cheerfulness and hopefulness which are reported to be- 
long to the real Lyman stock," and to which Henry Ward 
Beechei", himself a Lyman in part, alluded in a character- 
istic letter to the Lyman gathering at iN^orthampton, in 
1869. 

Too soon has the grave closed over him. In the prime 
of life, in the midst of his usefulness, with the most pro- 
mising future before him, he is cut down, a sacrifice to the 
work he had undertaken. Less than a week before his 
death, he left his home against the wishes of his family to at- 
tend to important railroad business. He returned to it 
never to leave it alive. His disease was typhoid fever, 
which progressed favorably until congestion of the lungs 
set in, which proved fatal. Of his own knowledge he was 
soon conscious of approaching dissolution ; and, as was said 
by an eye-witness of the scene, "he set about the business of 
dying as about a rail road or any other business that had to 
be done." He was completely self-possessed to the last, 
his mind clear and composed to an unwonted degree. Dur- 
ing the last few hours he was unable to articulate, but con- 
tinued to communicate his thoughts and wishes by writing. 
He was in no pain, as he frequently signified by words or 
signs. He retained something of his great physical strength 
to the end, the grasp of his hand, only a few minutes be- 
fore his death, seeming as powerful as ever, while his smile 
was quite the same that had won so many hearts. He 
breathed his last, with pencil in hand, endeavoring to com- 
plete a few more cheering words to surviving friends.

spicuous instance of great capacity, fidelity and success In 
the discharge of the difficult and responsible duties con- 
fided to him by the deceased under the will, and calls for 
the commendation of this court. We have rarely known 
an instance of such faithful, conscientious, and accurate 
performance of the duties of a trustee ; and in view of the 
fact that trust estates are so often, through incompetency 
or unfaithfulness, wasted, we feel it our duty to give the 
conduct of this trustee the marked approval of this court." 
Mr. Lyman's chief business, from which he received, for 
ten years previous to his death, a large annual income, 
was the manufacture of clothes-wringers by a manufactur- 
ing company, in which he held a controlling interest. For 
the last four years, however, he had had little to do with 
its active management, his whole time having been com- 
pletely absorbed — so completely as to have shortened his 
days — by his interest in the new line of railroad from 
New Haven to Middletown, and thence to Willimantic, 
the aim of which was, by connecting the two points of 
New Haven and Willimantic, to form a shorter line be- 
tween New York and Boston. To build a rail road is not 
usually difficult when the money is at hand, but financial 
matters in this case were not the chief difficulties to be en- 
countered. The Connecticut river was to be bridged at 
Middletown, and to this the most powerful interests in the 
state were opposed. The river towns above the proposed 
bridge; the competing lines of rail road already in exist- 
ence ; and, more than all, the city of Hartford, the city 
par excellence of judicious care for its own interests, were 
the parties the new rail road would have to contend with, 
and which twenty years before had defeated the very pro- 
ject Mr. Lyman proposed to accomplish. A man of less 
pluck, less ability, and less enthusiasm and hope, would 
have stopped even before he had begun. For two years 
he worked before the Connecticut legislature for a charter 
for the bridge and failed. The interests against him were 
too powerful for any one man or corporation. But nothing 
daunted, he went to Congress, and obtained the right to 
bridge the river, and the work was commenced. How he 
has labored since then, through doubt and discouragement, 
through evil and good report, through the lukewarmness 
of friends, and the open attacks of enemies, cannot be nar- 
rated here. All admit, friends and foes, that nobody else 
could have built the road at this time, or during the present 
generation. The two cities of Middletown and New Haven

David Lyman^ was b. in Middlefield, Conn., then a part 
of Middletown, Conn,, on the 19th of October, 1820 ; and d. 
in Middlefield, 24th of Jan., 1871, at the a^^e of 50 years 
and .3 months. From the numerous biographical notices 
which appeared in the journals of New Haven, Hartford, 
Middletown, and other places, we select and abridge the 
following, published in The Free Press of Bennington, Vt., 
Feb. 4, 1871: 

From his parents, persons of uncommon physical vigor, 
of more than ordinary intellectual capacity, and of the 
strongest moral and religious convictions, Mr. Lyman in- 
herited a permanent capital in the business of living a good 
life — that sound, physical, mental and moral constitution 
which has stood him in so good stead through his emi- 
nently useful career. He received in his youth what was 
then considered a good common school education, supple- 
mented by a little academical instruction. At the age of 
nineteen he was sent by the Messrs. Trowbridge of New 
Haven to Kentucky to purchase mules for the West India 
market, and by them and the house of Alsop & Chaun- 
cey of New York, was kept at this work for some years. 
For a short time he followed it too on his own account. 
At twenty-seven he was appointed to the trusteeship of a 
large estate, and, by the conditions of the will of the testa- 
tor, was not required to give the bonds usual in such cases. 
In the management of this trust, which he held up to the 
time of his death, his great capacity for business was con- 
stantly called into requisition. Not long after his accept- 
ance of the trust, a legal controversy arose concerning 
certain dispositions of the will. This controversy ran 
through the highest courts of Connecticut and New York, 
and the U. S. Circuit Court for the District of Connecticut. 
At the end of ten years of expensive litigation, in which 
some of the most distinguished lawyers of the land had 
been employed on one side or the other. Judge Nelson of 
the U. S. Supreme Court, in giving a decision in the case 
at New Haven, said of him : " His conduct presents a con-

where he d. June 6, 1832, aged 86. Prof. Fowler in his 
History of Durham, 190, says of him : " he was a man of 
great intelligence and extensive reading; dignified in man- 
ners and impressive in conversation. It is not impossible 
that he and some others were influenced in their opinions 
by the writings of Priestly and Price. So much pleased 
was Mr. Jefferson with him, that he gave him an invitation 
to spend a week with him at Monticello, which he accepted 
very much to his satisfaction. He was with Gen. Phineas 
Lyman in one of his expeditions to the south. He was a 
delegate to the convention that formed the constitution of 
Connecticut." His 3 children were :

ingenious beyond most of mankind, he received while in 
England a military commission, and, a little before the 
commencement of the American war, was required to 
join his regiment at Boston. He continued in the army 
until 1782; and then, with a heart nearly torpid with 
disappointment, sold his commission and came to Suf- 
jfield," where his fine mind " languished into lethargy 
and insensibility," and ere long " he fell a victim to this 
mental consumption." — Dwight's Travels, i, 280. *

of Derby which, since 1798, has formed the town of Ox- 
ford. He served for some time in the Revolutionary war 
as captain of a company. The following records may show 
in what consideration he was held : 

To all persons to whom these presents shall come, I Samuel 
Wheeler send greeting. Know ye that I y^ said Samuel Wheeler 
of Oxford, in Derby, ia the county of New Haven and colony of

assigns forever, a certain parcel of land lying in Derby, parish of 
Oxford, near the meetinghouse. (^Then follows a description of the 
land) : Sept. 10, 1746. April 21, 1747, John Lumm gives him a

battle of Lake George, Sept. 8, 1755, Gen. Johnson having 
retired to his tent after " receiving a flesh v^ound in his 
thigh at the commencement of the battle," the command 
devolved on Gen. Lyman, who, says Dr. Dwight in his 
Travels, vol. iii, 349, " immediately stationed himself in 
front of the breast-work, and there,- during five hours, amid 
the thickest danger, issued his orders to every part of the 
army, with a serenity few acquire." At length the French 
were repulsed on all sides, and their commander. Baron 
Dieskau, an able general, was taken prisoner. Gen. John- 
son, though he acknowledged in conversation that the 
victory was won chiefly by Gen, Lyman, did not mention him 
in his dispatches. The news of the victory arriving in Eng- 
land when the government was discouraged by Braddock's 
defeat of two months before, n vived the hopes of king and 
country, and gave a new turn to the fortunes of the war. 
Johnson's claims beingimmediately urged in the right quar- 
ter, Lyman's name being as yet unheard of in England, he 
received the thanks of parliament, and £5,000, and a baron- 
etcy. After the close of the war, which this and other 
services of Gen. Lyman had contributed to render success- 
ful and glorious, he went to England, where he remained 
eleven years and where his solicitations for recognition and 
reward were fruitless, or nearly so. He returned in 1774, 
cherishing some faint hope of recompense in a projected set- 
tlen>ent of Mississippi and the Yazoo lauds ; but d. in 1775, 
in West Florida, on his way to the new colony. Besides

failing health, he accompanied his father to West Florida 
where he d., and was soon followed to the grave by his 
discouraged father. " The next year, 1776," says Dr. 
Dwight, Travels^ I, letter xxxi, " Mrs. Lyman, wife 
of Gen. Phineas"', together with all the surviving family 
except the second son, embarked for the same country, 
accompanied by her only brother, Col. Dwight. Within 
a few months after their arrival she d., and her brother 
the next summer. The rest of the family continued in 
West Florida until it was invaded and conquered by the 
Spaniards in 1781 and 1782."

Ebenezer Lyman^, d. about 1751, at the age of 42 ; 
this date is recovered by means of the following singular 
tradition, preserved by his grandson, Geo. Lyman, of 
Wadsworth, Ohio, who writes to his sister, under date of 
Feb. 4, 1869, as follows : " Oar grandfather lost his life in 
the following manner : He, with two other men, went 
from home on a hunting expedition expecting to be gone 
from home several days. It was in the winter. When 
they ai-rived at the place where they expected to stop 
awhile, it being night, they built a tire against a large 
rock, and lay down by it to sleep. While thus situated, 
the fire operated on the rock and a very large portion fell 
over directly on our grandfather and so badly bruised him 
he did not long survive. Father, Caleb", b. 1747, was 
then about four years old ; so that the death of Ebenezer^, 
first settler of Torriugton, occurred about 1751.

hence the name Lyman Brook, which ran so far on his 
land. After a few persons came into the place, they built a 
fort on my grandfather's land, and every night resorted to it 
to sleep. In the day time they hoed their corn and cut their 
hay, with their guns by their side." She goes on to say

Joseph, b, Jan. 20, 1665, was, with his father, killed by 
the Indians, Oct. 29, 1675. Dea. Thomas^, had, according to 
Savage, six children, two of whom — Elizabeth and Enoch — 
are mentioned by him alone, and do not appear in the 
Durham records. He moved, in 1708 or '9, to Durham, 
Conn., which, for three or four generations thereafter, was 
the headquarters of this branch of the Lyman family. His 
wife Ruth and a part of his children came with him ; he 
was one of the early settlers ; one of the first deacons ; a 
representative of the town several sessions ; and d. there 
July 15, 1725, aged 75. The date of Mrs. Ruth Lyman's

the settlement of the Rev, l!Tathaniel Chauncey, the first 
minister of Durham, Dec. 30, 1710. The letter of dismis- 
sion and recommendation from Dr. Solomon Stoddard is 
preserved and is here copied : "To Mr. ISTathaniel Chauncey 
and the brethren at Durham that are about to enter into a 
church state : Ensign Thomas Liman, who is one of your 
inhabitants, has desired letters of dismission for himself 
and wife, accordingly we do recommend them to your holy 
communion ; he is in covenant with us ; she is in full com- 
munion; both without ofiense. We desire that God would 
make them blessings among you, and prosper your begin- 
ings that a foundation may be laid for the conversion and 
edification of many, thus requesting your prayers for us, 
we remain your brethren in the fellowship of the gospel.

250 Lyman Genealogy. 

1822 to Aug., 1824. Began to study, theology in New Haven in 
the autumn of 1824. Was tutor in Yale College from March, 
1825 to Sept., 1828. Was licensed to preach in 1828. Was for a. 
time professor of Latin and Greek in the Military Academy at Mid- 
dlelown, Conn. : but after a few months' service resigned the office, 
because the place, from its associations with war, was not congenial 
to his views and feelings. Was m. Oct. 1829, to Emeline Gregory, 
daughter of Samuel and Anne G. Colton of Longmeadow, Mass., 
who died, greatly beloved and lamented, March 6, 1863. Was as- 
sociated with Judge Hall, in 1829, in establishing the Classical 
School at Ellington, Conn. Was principal of the Academy at Lei- 
cester, Mass., from Sept. 1833 to Oct. 1839, when in consequence 
of broken health, induced by labors above measure, he resigned his 
place, and returned with his family to his native town, in hope of 
recovering, if possible, by farm labor, his physical strength, and that 
he might nourish, with filial assiduities, his aged father and mother. 

He was principal of the Williston Seminary from its opening 
Oct. 1, 1841, to July, 1849. 

After resigning his place in the Seminary, Mr. Wright was for 
several years engaged in giving instruction to private students in 
classical learning — a labor of love with him ; and his soul broke for 
the longings it had unto it at all times. In the closing day of his 
last sickness, amid his wanderings of mind, those who watched 
around his bed-side found him fancying himself engaged in his 
favorite toil, teaching Greek. It is estimated that in the various 
positions held by him as a teacher, he has had under his care and 
tuition an aggregate of four thousand pupils. Of these pupils there 
are those now occupying positions of eminent usefulness whom we 
have heard frankly and thankfully confessing, that for all that they 
are and have done, they are indebted, under God, to Luther Wright. 

Mr. Wright became a Christian while a member of Yale College, 
and joined the church in that institution. His conversion, in 
respect of its immediate and instrumental cause, he attributed to 
Mr. Nettleton's whispering in his ear the three words, " Be in earn- 
est," at an inquiry meeting, in a season of revival in Yale College. 
His convictions of sin were pungent, and that thorough " law work " 
gave depth and fervor to his piety as seen in after years. 

Coming to Easthamptou from Leicester, Mr. and Mrs. Wright 
brought letters from the church there, and joined the church 
July 5, 1840. He was chosen deacon of this church May 14, 1857, 
and continued to discharge the duties of that office till the day of 
his death. Was chosen member of the church committee June 28, 
1866. Has served during several years as member of the parish 
committee. Has been the treasurer of the church since his election 
to the office of deacon. Has many times been sent with the pastor 
to neighboring churches to serve on ecclesiastical councils. 

In his humility he requested that upon his tomb-stone should be 
placed no title, but simply his name. And so, in conclusion, as was

said of Henry Kirke White, I should say of my friend and father — 
Luther Wright, " His monument shall be his name alone.''

In 1803, in a tract of land 6 miles square in Susquehan- 
nah Co., Pa,, which had been purchased for a half bushel of 
silver dollars, his farm had been purchased for an indif- 
ferent horse and saddle. For many miles he cut his way 
for his team through an unbroken forest, and reached his 
destination with fifty cents capital to begin life in this wil- 
derness, subsisting upon game and wild fruits until he 
could clear the grounds for crops. The title being invalid, 
he bought 200 acres at one dollar an acre. Here he reared 
in competence a family of eleven children, all of whom 
lived to a good old age and several had numerous families ; 
two had 12 children, two had 10, one had 8, and another

Deacon James G. Bolles, the husband of Orra A., was the son of 
Rev. Matthew Bolles, and was born in Eastford now Ashford, Conn., 



262 Lyman O-enealogy. 

Jan. 17th, 1802. When a lad of about fifteen years of age, he went 
into the printing ofiice of the Bridgeport Farmer, under the late 
Mr. Stiles Nichols, and continued there until he was twenty. Af- 
terwards Mr. Bolles was the publisher of the Christian Watcliman 
in Boston, but, not finding his physical strength equal to the demand 
there made upon it, he came to Hartford about 1825, and engaged 
in the dry goods business. Subsequently, he took up Fire Insurance, 
as the great business which he made emphatically his life's work, 
so far as his secular occupation was concerned. For a number of 
years he was the respected secretary of the Hartford Fire Insurance 
Company. When the North American Company was organized iu 
1857, he was made its president, and held the position for some time. 
He was a director of that company at the time of his decease. He 
was among the oldest, if not the oldest underwriter in the city. 
During the administration of President Lincoln, Mr. Bolles \Ya3 
collector of Internal Revenue for the first district in this State ; 
but was removed by President Johnson. In 1855, he was elected 
major of the Governor's Foot Gruard. Several times Mr. Bolles 
traveled in Europe, and he was on the eve of making another tour 
with his family, at the time of his decease. 

Having been an example of a pure and blameless life, and a 
faithful attendant on the duties of religion, his conversion at the 
age of 40 years was a remarkable illustration of the reality of the 
new and nobler life to which one is born by grace divine. All were 
constrained to see and admire the change in Mr. Bolles, to which 
all his subsequent life gave witness. 

Mr. Bolles was baptized Jan. 24, 1841, and from that date to his 
death, he has been a most faithful friend to the church. He was 
elected to the deaconship, Feb. 4th, 1845. He gave largely for 
the support of the preaching of the gospel, and was glad to have a 
share in the benevolent operations of the day. Dea. Bolles was a 
generous contributor all our objects of Christian benevolence. In 
addition, he left by will, to the First Baptist church $10,000; to 
the Connecticut Baptist State Convention, $10,000; to the Con- 
necticut Baptist Education Society, $10,000; and to the Hartford 
Hospital, $10,000. 

Mr. Bolles was a man of great purity of life and uprightness of 
character, amiable and gentle in all the relations of life, but firm in 
principle. He was a devoted Christian, in connection with the 
Baptist church. He was a man generally beloved, his advice was 
sought, his counsel was sound and valuable ; he was especially 
friendly to young men, and always ready to help them to an honora- 
ble start in life. Very many who read this paragraph will recall 
his always friendly words, his charity, his kindly manner, his effi- 
cient help. He was a man beloved and trusted; true in his' politi- 
cal life, true in his friendships, liberal and upright. Hartford owes 
its honorable reputation to such men. We profit by his example 
and mourn his loss — a Christian gentleman, one of nature's noble- 
men, all the more ennobled by grace divine. 



Descendants of John, 263 

Miss Julia B. Lyman. — The following obituary is abridged frota 
that which was presented at the last Reunion of the Lyman Family : 

Soft as the lunar ray that sleeps 

Upon the bosom of the peaceful lake ; 

Or dewy eve distilling sweet 

On vernal flowers ; or breath of morn, 

On od'rous wings ascending from the east 

With melody of birds — so soft and sweet, 

Is memory of those we loved. 

Forty years ago, and more, you might have seen in one of the 
Lyman families of Connecticut, a very slight delicate girl, studious 
and accurate as a scholar, sedat3, conscientious, fond of books, but 
not given to as abundant use of the tongue, as some of her sex are 
reported to be. That fine, quiet, scholarly girl, early formed a lov- 
ing attachment to the Lyman name. She never would change that 
name for any other. Born in it, she lived and died in it. 

She early manifested talent for business : a mind clear, quick, 
accurate and retentive. Fortunately for us, while yet a girl, she 
became interested in the Lyman genealogy. That interest increased 
with the increase of years. She felt, as well she might, that the 
Lyman, like many other families, were sustaining a great loss, by a 
criminal ignorance and neglect of their worthy ancestors. 

It is a noble work to help save a family name from an ignoble 
oblivion. She engaged in it with Christian zeal and love, and 
persevered in it at the cost of time and money and perhaps of life itself. 

The chart of the Lyman family, so highly valued by us, is wholly 
the work of her hands. None, save he who has tried it, knows how 
much work, hard work, is requisite to prepare such a chart. The 
sources of information for it are fourfold : 1st. Ancient colonial 
and municipal records. 2d. Old monuments and grave stones. 3d. 
Old family and church records. 4th. Old folks of sound memory 
and clear mind. All these she consulted as extensively as her 
health and strength would permi^, years and years ago. Before 
many of us had ever been baptized into the Lyman name, she might 
have been seen collecting and correcting these materials, writing 
and visiting various places in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Ver- 
mont; examining old safi'ron-colored records and parchments, 
rubbing off the ancient moss from old tombstones, that she might 
read the name and the date thereon, asking for the sacred old 
family record, and talking with the " old folks " about persons, that 
their childhood memories could recall. All these facts, she would 
set down in their order, until she had collected the indisputable 
data, out of which, to construct this wonderful chart-wheel, 
where we can all trace our own families as belonging to 
the branch of Bichard Lyman, who came from High Ongar, to 
establish a name in America. Let us remember, too, that all this 
was a work of love ; no money tempted her ; she always peremptorily 
refused all pecuniary aid. She would not even share with others, 
the expense of her journeys and correspondence in this matter.

She would loorJc, disinterestedly, from love of the work, and love 
of the family. 

For all we have enjoyed of union and reunion of the Lyman 
brotherhood, we are, in no small degree, indebted to her patient, 
life-long labors. By the letters she had written, the facts she had 
collected, and the interest she had helped to excite in our family 
history, she has done more than any one else to create the demand, 
among the Lymans, for our reunion, and for such a history as we 
hope to have. It is sad to think, that by these assiduous labors, she 
hastened her end. Self-sacrifice, and Christian love for others, 
seemed the law of her life. She had cast her anchor within the 
vail; she died in faith, she sleeps in Jesus, our Lord and Master in 
whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named. 

The following extract is from the letter of a sister, who speaks 
from a full heart : 

" The chart she commenced many years ago. When a prospect 
opened of a genealogical record of the whole Lyman family, being 
combined in a book, her assiduities increased, and her labors ex- 
panded. Innumerable notes of names and families multiplied upon 
her desk, like leaves of the forest, communicating with persons of 
the Lyman name and connection, in almost every part of the Union, 
and beyond. They were labors of love, and I know of no other 
motive, that ever led her to undertake or carry it on, and though 
her frame was slight and delicate, and her health never good, often 
very poor, yet she had a fund of mental resolution which induced 
her to go on in her efforts, far beyond what she had strength to 
sustain. The chart she wrote, and rewrote,, many times, and it was 
a work she enjoyed. But the difficulty of getting it rightly en- 
graved, was one she could not control, as she could her own hand : 
and it saddens me to remember, how severely this work told upon 
her health, which was at that time very feeble. After her part of 
the work was finished, her health steadily declined ; such intense and 
long-continued labor, combined with active disease of body, showed 
their sad effects. The last few months of her life were seasons of 
great sufferings, which she bore with sweet Christian patience. 

"Her views of herself, were very lowly ; but this did not remove 
her from the Rock, Christ Jesus, on whom her faith rested. It 
may not be thought proper, for one so nearly related, to dilate upon 
the excellencies of her character, but, surely, none knew as well as 
myself, how beautiful that character was. A person so. disinterested 
and so conscientious, is rarely seen ; self-sacrifice was the law of 
her life. Life was joyless to her when she could not communicate 
some good to some of her kind. Her energies were not all spent 
upon the work of which we have been speaking, but scattered all 
along her pathway in life, she found many ways of doing good, in a 
quiet and unobtrusive manner, and it is a sweet solace to me to be- 
lieve that the influence of her lovely example, is not lost in the 
little world in which she moved. Her memory will be cherished, 
in the hearts of all, who knew her well."

Rev. George S. Bishop, of Newburgh, N. Y. [C/i. Wth 
Gen.: (i) William Samuel. (2) Margaret Williston.] 

Mr. Williston, sou of Rev. Payson Williston and brother of Hon. 
Samuel Williston, entered into business in Northampton as a druggist 
and grocer, and later in life was an extensive cotton manufacturer. 
Also the original inventor and only manuftxoturer of Payson's indeli- 
able ink. In his business he was successful from the start. He was 
sagacious and far-seeing, and planned for a campaign of a lifetime, 
rather than for the present. Such was his clearness of perception, 
his knowledge of correct business principles, and his capacity to 
adhere to them, that he seldom if ever, made a failure of any enter- 
prise he engaged in. He was a director of the Northampton Bank 
for many years, a director of the Holyoke Water Power Co., and at 
one time was a selectman of the town. 

He early engaged in true temperance reform ; wiis active and promi- 
nent in the Washingtonian movement. Bold, defiant, aggressive, he 
pursued the evil with tireless zeal, and summoned to his aid whatever 
of assistance his wealth could command. During this protracted 
coutrover.sy his barn was twice destroyed by an incendiary fire, and 
his house likewise fired and partially consumed. His life was an 
unfailing testimony to his faith in his temperance principles, for he 
practiced himself what he earnestly counseled and demanded of 
others. 

He was also the early and devoted friend of the anti slavery cause. 
This he espoused in its infancy, when it was unpopular and even 
obnoxious to the general New England public. Regardless of fear 
or favor, he pushed it onward, demanding that slavery should be 
discussed and denounced in our halls and pulpits. Here also he 



266 Lyman Genealogy. 

practiced what he preached, and tlie fleeing fugitive slave, who often 
came this way on the route to Canada, found in him a faithful friend. 
His roof sheltered, his table fed, his sympathy cheered, his purse 
assisted, the fleeing bondman. His house thus became widely known 
as one of the depots of the " underground railroad," which conveyed 
so many people from a land of slavery to a land of liberty, in fact 
rather than in name. 

But perhaps Mr. Williston was best known to this community for 
his large, though unostentatious charities. In his early years he 
espoused the Christian religion, and his long life was conspicuous 
for his faithful following of the teachings of Christ. Benevolence ho 
regarded as one of the Christian principles, and with religious fidelity 
he practiced it. Soon after he entered upon his business life he re- 
solved to appropriate whatever he should make each year in excess 
of $500, during the period of ten years, to benevolent objects. At 
the end of that time, he found he had nothing to give, and he then 
resolved to devote to charitable objects one-tenth of his income, be 
it more or less. This resolution he more than fulfilled, and during 
the later years of his life he gave away in charities his entire income. 
The public little know, nor will it ever be apprised of, the full extent 
of his charitable contributions, for he gave in secret, and never with 
a view to notoriety. The widow, the orphan, the lonely and forsaken 
ones, have been helped by him when help was precious. He also 
assisted many poor young men to commence business, or aided them 
when involved in difficulty. His heart was open and his hand ready 
whenever he could see that the call was a worthy one. He also aided 
niany young men to educate themselves. He espoused the cause of 
a poor colored boy, and educated him at his own expense, until he 
graduated at Oberlin College. 

Mr. Williston was for a long series of years an active and leading 
member of the first church and society in this town, and in 1838 was 
chosen one of the deacons of the church, retaining the office to the 
day of his decease, a period of 34 years. 

Although often at variance with the public in dealing with ques- 
tions of policy or principle, he yet retained at all times the entire 
respect and confidence of the people. His great boldness, his won- 
derful perseverance, his unyielding devotion to whatever he believed 
to be right, his hatred of shams and whatever seemed to be false, and 
above all, his incorruptible integrity, rendered him a remarkable 
power in the community, and his influence here will be felt long after 
the present generation shall have passed away. He may truly be 
regarded one of the most remarkable men that ever lived in North- 
ampton. His was a life of earnest purpose, of courageous efi"ort, of 
strict, methodical adherence to principle. Such a life is a life of 
power and of lasting influence. Modest, retiring, conscientious and 
unswerving in principle, eminently successful in business and unos- 
tentatious in his charities, he is an illustrious example of a good and 
faithful servant of his Master. 

Mr. Williston was m. in March, 1827, to Miss Cecilia, only daugh- 
ter of the late Asahel Lyman, of this town, who survives him. Their

general manager of the Greenville Manufacturing Company, and

595 2 Edward, b. Jan. 21, 1826 ; m. Minerva Lyman. 

Hon. Job Lyman inherited from his Puritan ancestors a rugged 
strength of moral principle which served throughout the changes and 
vicissitudes of modern skepticism to retain, intact, the early faith of 
New England ; a faith, which, however stern in tl- jry, when blended 
with the warm, generous impulses of his hea' t, became a religion 
that irradiated to the close of the life of the gentle pilgrim ! Exceed- 
ing by nineteen years the allotted three score and ten, Mr. Ly- 
man illustrated in the ever gentle courtesy of his demeanor, the 
dignity of the " old school!" and the daily life of colonial times. 
Breaking away from the agricultural and mercantile traditions of 
his family, the younger brother made a bold move to secure to him- 
self the advantages of a liberal education, and entered Dartmouth 
College when he graduated in 1804 ; classmate of Daniel Webster. 
He studied law at Windsor and Haverhill, N. H., and located for 
the practice of his profession at Woodstock, Vt., where he spent the 
prime of an honorable and useful career. 

He early became connected with various important public in- 
terests ; serving as cashier in the Old Vermont State Bank through- 
out its existence, and as president of the Woodstock Bank for many 
years. 

He was court auditor of Windsor Co., for a long period and a 
member of the governor's council. As a member of the Congrega- 
tional church, he sustained a prominent position, and in every 
relation of life, whether private or public, was known as an indus- 
trfous, successful and honest man. 

In 1850 he removed to Burlington, Yt, retiring from all business, 
to spend the rest of his days in the family of his son Edward, whose 
affectionate care, coupled with that of his only daughter, Mrs. Traip, 
made pleasant the declining years of life. 

Mr. Lyman married a daughter of Judge Lot Hall, of West- 
minster, who died, sincerely mourned, seven years previous to the 
death of her husband. 



268 Lyman G-enealogy. 

Mr. Lyman retained to the last his cordial interest in public and 
national affairs. Throughout the long and sometimes doubtful struggle 
of our late civil war, he remained a cheerful, unwavering supporter of 
the government ; and, although too aged and infirm to place him- 
self within the lists, sent a stalwart substitute to battle in behalf of 
his principles. 

One of the most pleasing incidents that marked the last years 
of this venerable old man, was his ability to be present at thecentennial 
commencement of his alma mater — Dartmouth College — where as 
\q oldest graduate present, one of sixty five years' standing, he was 
/le most noticed of the Alumni. 
' Extreme weakness prevented his attendance at the Lyman pic-nic 
the August followinjj;, but his cordial letter of greeting and encou- 
ragement was not lacking on that occasion. 

He took a lively interest in the growth and prosperity of Burling- 
ton and in many charitable institutions, prominent amoug which 
was the Home for the Destitute, which realized from his generosity 
a tangible and munificent benefit. 

He. fulfilled with conscientious strictness his duty as a citizen, 
not forgetting the important duty of voting, even when gathering 
years might well have excused him. 

His last illness was brief, terminating on the 2d day, Sept. 10, 
1870. He passed away ripe in years, rich in the garnered ex- 
perience of an useful life, known to all as a patriotic and worthy 
citizen, a sincere Christian and a friend whose aid and sympathy 
were surest when the need was the most pressing ; and those who 
have known him long and intimately, felt, in connection with the 
purity and gentleness of his heart, that he might well have ex- 
claimed with the unfortunate Josephine of France : " I have never 
willingly caused a tear to flow."

and in New York ; left the law in 1860 ; studied theology; 
served as Chaplain in the army with the 41st Reg., Ohio 
Vols., and with the 93d at the battles of Shiloh, siege 
of Corinth, and battle of Stone river ; resigned on account 
of impaired health, became pastor of Euclid St. Church 
of Cleveland, 0., May, 1868. 

Rev. Dr. 0. A. Lyman, of the Euclid Street Presbyterian church, 
Cleveland, Ohio, was struck with paralysis while attending a special 
meeting of Presbytery in the Second Presbyterian church. He was 
the prosecutor in a trial, which has occupied the attention of the 
Presbytery for some time, and he had been engaged for parts of two 
days in examining witnesses, and had just made his argument in a 
quiet manner, though with some evidence of painful feeling in the 
discharge of the duty. While sitting a chair he slipped to the floor, 
and when lifted up was found to be entirely paralyzed on his right 
side. Excellent medical attendance was immediately at hand, and 
he was soon taken to his house. He remained helpless and uncon- 
scious till death, and the event produced great pain throughout the 
city. He was in the early prime of his powers, and had won the 
highest respect of the community.

Lucinda Hall, of Troy, N. Y., by whom he had two children, Ellen 
C, wife of Chnrles B. Allen, Esq., of Burlington, and Elias. At 
Burlington he engaged in successful mercantile pursuits for several 
years, till at length increasing bodily infii'mities resulting eventually 
in the paralysis of the lower limbs, compelled him to withdraw from 
active duties, and in 1850, retired from business to the quiet life 
of home. But although thus rendered unable to engage personally 
in active pursuits, he still and throughout 'his life maintained a 
great interest in them, and continued his connection with various 
important business and social enterprises. As a business man he 
bore a reputation for untiring energy, sound judgment, and scru- 
pulous honesty. Uniformly courteous with a manner quiet and 
unassuming, and ever exhibiting a marked degree of kindness and 
regard for the welfare of others, he possessed the love as well as 
the confidence of all who knew him. 

His private life was an example of patience, cheerfulness and af- 
fection under his severe affliction. During the last ten years of his 
life he was unable to move about without assistance, but his perfect 
resignation and forgetfulness of self, in his consideration for others, 
are a sunny memory in the hearts of all who were intimately as- 
sociated with him. He was an earnest member of the Protestant 
Episcopal church, and for thirty years he was one of the vestrymen 
of St. Paul's, Burlington. 

In the summer of 1870, his disease, which had thus far been 
marked by a progress so gradual as to be almost imperceptible, 
reached the vital organs ; and after five weeks of entire prostration, 
which were borne, as had been all liis other trials, without a word 
of murmuring, he quietly entered into his rest on Monday, Septem- 
ber 5th, 1870. As we remember him, the words of an American 
poet emphasized by his own whitened locks, come to mind : 

" His youth was inuocent ; his riper age 

Marked with some act of goodness every day ; 
And watched by eyes that loved Mm; calm and sage, 

Faded his late declining years away. 
Cheerfully he gave his being up, and went 
To share the holy rest that waits a life well spent."

This notice of the family of Sylvester Lyman, coming to hand too 
late to be inserted in its proper place, is given in connection with, 
that of his surviving son, Charles Harvey Picket Lyman. — See p. 269. 

Sylvester Lyman was b. at the old homestead near Smith's Ferry 
at the foot of Mount Tom, m. in Northampton, commenced business 
in " Shop Row," afterwards removed to Boston, opened dry goods 
business. After the war of 1812, and declaration of peace, 
removed to Ohio, where he remained several years and then returned 
and settled in Pittsfield, Mass., where he resided some 10 or 12 
years, was prostrated by lithiasis, went to Albany, N. Y., for a 
surgical operation, which he survived only 6 weeks ; and was buried 
in the family plat in the Albany Rural Cemetery. He was 
a man of medium height, though his father measured over six 
feet, blue eyes and light complexion, of remarkable purity of 
character, uniformity of disposition, of great endurance and appli- 
cation, courteous and gentlemanly in his manner, warm-hearted and 
a true friend, of whom the companion of his pilgrimage after his 
decease often testified, that for more than forty years she had borne 
with him the vicissitudes of life, yet in all that time he never 
spoke one unkind word to her. 

Nancy Clapp, his wife, was born at the old homestead, which is 
still standing in South street, Northampton, daughter of Ebenezer 
Clapp ; of deep piety, warm afi"ections ; governing by a look, never 
by words or blows ; a consistent member, through her whole life, 
of the Congregational church. She survived her husband but two 
years, and is buried by her side. The writer of this owes his first 
religious impressions to her constant practice of retiring with him 
up to the period of his leaving home, in his early boyhood, to her 
private chamber and then on bended knee commending him in 
prayer to God's mercy and protection. 

George Lyman, the eldest son, was b. in Northampton. He was 
a man of more than ordinary ability, was pronounced in his day, the 
" most elegant man in Boston." His height was 5ft. 11 inches, well 
built, dark hair, hazel eyes, straight as an arrow, polished and grace- 
ful, a warm friend, but quick to I'esent insult. His history was one 
of peculiar interest to his family, more remarkable than fiction, but 
too lengthy to narrate here. In 1824, he embarked in a commer- 
cial enterprise, in connection with the opening up of the Nicaragua 
canal, by the British government, in Central America. The expedi- 
tion was unfortunate. While crossing Lake Nicaragua, a storm 
arjose, and the merchandise was thrown overboard, and, though an 
expert swimmer and urged to make an efi"ort to save his life, he 
nevertheless simply wrapped his cloak around him and went down 
with the vessel. Only one escaped to tell the tale.

Wm. Lyman, was b. in Boston. Shortly after the emigration of his 
parents to Ohio, he returned to Massachusetts, for the purpose of 
entering a store, and traveled alone on foot over the Aleghanies 
and safely reached his destination, being then only 13 years of age. 
About 1830 he vreat to Albany, N. Y., anTl shortly after established 
the well known firm of Lyman & Hanford, which for many years 
maintained an enviable reputation. He d. suddenly in the spring 
of 1858, of congestion of the lungs, and is buried by the side of his 
wife, father and mother. He left no issue. 

Henry Lyman, was b. in Boston, graduated at Union College with 
the valedictory honors; passed through Princeton Theological Semi- 
nary, and after serving acceptably a number of years in the ministry, 
took up his residence in New York. He d. of pneumonia, Jan. 
31, 1872, and is buried by the side of his wife in his family vault, 
at Forest Hill Cemetery, West Roxbury, near Boston, Massachusetts. 
He left no issue. 

Sylvester Lyman, of New York, and C. H. P. Lyman, of Chicago, 
are the only surviving members of the family.

703 Harvey Lyman^ b. iu South Hadley, Aug. 26, 1814, 
son of IsraeP, Israel'^, Zadoc^, Johyi^, John^, John^, Richard}. 
His mother's name was Sally Moody. His father had 
about a hundred acre farm, including the Rock Ferry 
between Mt. Tom and Holyoke. At the age of 16, 1831, 
he joined the Congregational church iu South Hadley. 
In 1835, he received faith in the Shaker religion, and in 
April, 1837, be with his mother, Elijah and Edward, joined 
the Shakers at Enfield, Ct. He remained a private mem- 
ber until 1841, when he was promoted to a trustee ; in 
1846, he was appointed one of the elders, whose duty it 
was to oversee all business, particularly to receive new 
members and the confessions of the fraternity. In 1850, 
he became somewhat dissatisfied; and having formed an 
attachment to the second eldress, Mary Ann White, both 
found means to look imuiterable things which they were not 
permitted to express, and in June 24, .1854, he and the 
eldress found themselves in Springfield, made one by 
marriage. He carried on the grocery busine^!S until i^ov., 
1857, when with his family he went to California, but 
returned in about four months, making a loss of about 
1,000 dollars. 

From that time he has conducted a successful grocery 
business in Springfield, in several places from which with 
his rents, he receives a handsome income. 

To him and his wife the Lyman family are indebted 
chiefly for their union Aug. 10, 1869, and reunion, Aug. 
30, 1871. At a picnic the proposal of a similar social 
gathering of the Lyman's was suggested by Mrs. Lyman, 
and he was designated to 'carry it into efiect; which was 
happily and successfully accomplished. The facilities for 
the reunion in 1871, were chiefly provided by the same, 
and we may hope that these have inaugurated the stated 
meetings of the family in future years. Springfield, Mass.

and children are now gathered. The father and mother, 
with all their children near, all identified with whatever 
is good and true, all living active Christians, having not 
one missing from their circle, and with groups of grand- 
children growing up around them, seem in most things un- 
usually blessed, and ready for a ripe, happy old age, — a pleas- 
ant retrospect over a useful, well spent life, a cheerful waiting 
for the tide that shall carry them out to the '• home beyond 
the river." Fairbury, III.

He was early inclined to study for college and was willing to make 
great sacrifices to fit for college and support himself while there. 

He taught for two or three years at the south, and studied law 
and was admitted to the bar, in New Orleans, He was ambitious 
and a very careful and diligent student. He was just beginning

to gain a position in his profession when th^3 war broke out, which 
eventually drove him north, impoverished and disappointed. He 
was remarkably cheerful in misfortune. Always looking on the 
bright side and when he went to New York, in 1864, he had nothing 
but his head and hands to depend upon. He had no one to introduce 
him, or to help him into a position, or support him and his in- 
creasing family till he could get a start. He wrote articles for 
newspapers on topics of interest, depending upon their own merits 
to introduce them. They were, many of them, published, though 
the writer was unknown. He made a demand for his writing by 
their true merit. He wrote most of the sketches of that very popu- 
lar book The Women of the War, though his name does not appear. 
He also wrote several articles on agriculture and together with his 
wife, published The Philosophi/ of Housekeeping, and soon became 
the agricultural editor of the Neio York Tribune. 
Extract from the Weekly Tribune. 
" These experimental essays brought him into communication 
with New York journalism, and he came to this city to begin the 
useful and successful career which has been suddenly cut short by 
death. He acted for two years as agricultural editor of the 
World, next became managing editor of Hearth and Home, 
from which position he came to the Tribune, where he filled for the 
kst four years of his life, with unusual energy and intelligence the 
chair of agricultural editor. He traveled extensively west and 
south, and his conscientiousness and sagacity made his lettters es- 
pecially valuable. He was a prominent member of the Farmer's 
Club and Rural Club, and in honorary capacity connected with many 
horticultural and agricultural societies. The Farmer's Club af- 
forded him congenial means of diffusing practical knowledge on 
current subjects. This club owes largely its importance and use- 
, fulness to his zealous cooperation." He was a very hard working 
man, would undertake what would seem impossible to other men. 
In all his labors for the diffusion of knowledge and progress in agri- 
culture, he was imbued with the thought that he was doing good. 
He was for many years a professing Christian. In his last sickness 
when inquired of, by his wife, about his feelings, his reply was, 
' Christ has been the head centre of my faith, for 20 years, I have 
no fear.' "

Both Caleb Strong and Phebe his wife were distinguished for 
original strength of mind, sound judgment and exemplary Christian 
deportment. They were the parents of twelve children, one of whom 
was Gov. Caleb Strong, one of the most distinguished Christiao 
statesmen of Massachusetts. He was U. S. Senator in the First 
Congress, 1788-94, 1794-1800. He became eminent in the legal 
profession ; and equally distinguished for his moral worth and stern 
integrity. He was deservedly honored with the respect of his citi- 
zens throughout the state of which he received the highest evidence 
in his appointment as governor of the commonwealth. On his election 
as governor of the state although party spirit ran high, not a vote was 
cast against him in seven or eight towns of which Northampton was 
the centre. To the same office he was repeatedly elected. 

As early as 1772 he was a professing Christian, and acted plainly 
under the sense of religious obligation, and sought the praise of 
God rather than that of men. He was a pillar in the church 
at Northampton, and for many years president of the Hampshire Co. 
Missionary Society and of the Hampshire Bible Society. In the 
latter years of his life he was much given to the study of the 
scriptures and of theological works. Time grew less and eternity 
ever more in his thoughts. In private life he was affable and at- 
tractive. He had those magnetic qualities of character, which, with 
his integrity, simplicity and dignity, drew all eyes and hearts to him. 
The Lymans and the Strongs, beginning at Northampton their career 
together in America, have frequently intermarried. Their mutual re- 
lations from these intermarriages are fully developed in the history 
of the Strong Family, by the Rev. B. W. Dwight, from which the above 
statements have been chiefly taken.

738 8 Elizabeth, b. Feb. 8, 1768; m. a Gilman. 

739 9 Sarah, b. Dec. 21, 1772 ; m. a Keating. 

Nothing is known of any of his children except Theodore, 
who is still remembered in Boston as a man of great force and 
marked traits of character, of sterling worth, and generous impulses. 
He was one of the set of men who made the name of a " merchant 
of Boston" respected throughout the world. 

Theodore was the only married son of Rev. Isaac L., therefore 
his descendants are the only ones of the male line from this branch. 
There were descendants in the collateral branches of Bragdon, 
Plummer, Keating, Gilman, Keating. Dr. Buckminster had no 
children. 

The following is extracted from the funeral sermon of the Rev. 
Dr. Hemmingway of Wells, Me. : 

His talents appeared to be rather solid than shining, qualifying 
him rather for usefulness in his particular calling, than to figure in 
the eye of the world. With a sound, sagacious judgment, his mind 
was well furnished with valuable and useful knowledge ; particu- 
larly he understood the sacred doctrines and duties of the Christian 
religion, of which he was a public teacher. Prudence in the conduct 
of lite was an eminent and acknowledged part of his character, as 
was also great integrity and probity. In him" the wisdom of the 
serpent was joined with the innocence of the dove. His integrity 
and uprightness preserved him. He appeared always to maintain a 
mild, placid, and kind temper, happy to himself and those with him, 
and a conversation becoming the gospel. None appeared more 
universally loved and respected. Those who were most acquainted 
with him had the highest esteem for him. He was not a bigot. 
His religion was orthodoxy and charity united. As a public teacher 
the apparent aim and tendency of his discourses was not to show 
himself, but to promote true godliness and righteousness. He was 
an amiable example of the graces and virtues of the Q' ristian 
temper and life. For many years he was wholly taken off/ ^t was

Theodore Lyinan, a munificent benefactor of reformatory educa- 
tion in Massachusetts, was born in Boston on the 20th day of Febru- 
ary, 1792, the son of a successful merchant, and therefore in circum- 
stances favorable for the formation and development of a manly 
character, under the influence of practical views, and liberal in- 
struction. He was educated at Phillips Academy, and Harvard 
College, and was graduated at the latter institution in 1810. 

In 1812 he went abroad, and traveled in Europe for about four 
years, a part of the time in company with Hon. Edward Everett, 
visiting all the great centres of interest, including G-reece, Egypt, 
and Palestine. He was in Paris when the allied armies entered that 
city, and of the stirring incidents of that period he has given an 
account in a volume entitled Three Weeks in Paris. The fruits 
of his foreign travels and suggested studies, were subsequently 
embodied in an octavo volume on Itali/, and two volumes on the 
Diplomacy of the United States with Foreign Nations, both of 
which were favorably received by the public.

several of his declining years, the quiet home in Dorchester, Mass., 
provided for him by his children, died at his son's house in Boston, 
Jan. 20, 1869, aged sixty-eight years. He was " a faithful, true- 
hearted and most aflPectionate servant of Christ, and wherever he 
dwelt attracted the confidence and love of many hearts." 

The close of life was serene, cheerfully bearing the burden of ill 
health, endearing himself by his sweet and modest worth to all 
around, he waited for the summons, which came suddenly at last, 
but not too suddenly for one who long had felt that " The Lord's 
appointment is the servant's hour." His record is on high ; and 
though his labors have ended, his words of truth and love will long 
remain to bless those to whom he ministered,

The marriage of Timothy Lyman and Dorothy Kinney was one of the 
first, perhaps the first, in the town of Worthington, Mass., adjoining 
Chester, on the north-east. The town was not yetincorporated, neither 
do any records of the precinct run back to this period. Col. Kinney, 
the father of Dorothy, from Preston, Conn., had removed his family 
consisting of several daus. of adult age, into his log cabin inclosing a 
single compartment comprising kitchen, parlor and lodgings for the 
household, very inconvenient for the entertainment of lover and 
friend and the reciprocal expression of the " conscious flame." But 
the address of these wood nymphs was equal to the emergency. 
Lumber they had none, but the birch bark of the forest carefully 
prepared, afforded a substitute of silvery tint and polish that might 
grace the wainscoting of a princely parlor ; and with their birch 
bark partitions they extemporized a cosy parlor for the reception of 
their friends. Within this birch bark parlor one hundred and two 
years since a youthful virtuous pair, with native energy and charac- 
ter competent for higher scenes, pledged their mutual faith and love, 
and were m. May 18, 1769. The husband was a man of rare ability, 
quick discernment, and sound judgment, very ready in repartee 
and capable of the keenest irony.

Dea. Samuel Lyman, the youngest son of Dea. Stephen, now 86 
years of age, has collected and recorded the genealogy of 337 of his 
kindred, the descendants of his father in just 100 years — the most 
prolific on record in this genealogy, of the whole lineage of the 
Lyman family. 

2 Timothy Lyman", 2d son of Dea. Elias^, Moses^, 
Moses^, John^, Richard}, 1744-1815. With his brother 
Stephen settled in Chester on adjacent farms, then a 
wilderness, where he lived through life highly esteemed 
as a man of strong native talent, an influential citizen 
holding various offices in the town, and a consistent Christ- 
ian. His usefulness and happiness were overshadowed by 
peculiar mental aberrations in the last years of his life. He 
d. Oct. 12, 1815, aged 71; his wife Dorothy Kinney, b. 
Jan. 10, 1752, d. Dec. 11, 1829, aged 78. Chester, Mass.

Easthampton, a merchant of that place many years, and a 
prominent citizen. With one exception he held the 
office of town clerk longer than any citizen of the town. 
In 1810, he retired from mercantile life, and in 1830, 
removed to Homer, N. Y., where several of his children 
resided. He d. July 11, 1839, aged 74 years. His 
wife d. July 18, 1842, aged 72 years.

In 1816, Achsah and family removed to West Hartford, Conn. ; 
in 1821, to Pittsfield, Mass.; in May, 1868, removed to Oberlin, 
Ohio, where she resided with her daughters in good health and a 
green old age, verging on 95 years, having been a housekeeper 76 
. years and a widow 10 years, after completing almost QQ years of 
married life with Dr. Coleman. So far as appears in this genealogy, 
she attained to the greatest age of any of the Lyman family. This 
venerable woman died Dec. 7, 1868, after an illness of a day or two. 
She was truly a mother in Israel. In early life she made a public 
profession of faith in her Saviour, and her whole subsequent life

vaded by rebel soldiers under Morgan, and the life of his venerable 
father-iu-law, 80 years of age, was saved by the noble wife and 
daughter, throwing herself before the weapon of the assassin who 
cowered in view of her dauntless heroism and spared the life of the 
patriot patriarch. Dr. Lyman m. May 19, 1858, Isabel Field, of 
Richmond, Ky. 

The aged father, E. H. Field, saved by the heroic daring of this 
daughter, was a loyal Kentuckian, who in those days that tried 
men's souls, nobly dared at his great age — to rally around his 
country's flag, for her defense against the traitor rebels of his native 
state ; to take his gun and join the horse-guards for the protection 
and preservation of the Union, for which his father Capt. Henry 
Field had bled and died, in the terrible battle of Blue Licks. The 
mother of Mrs. Lyman was a sister of Col. Irvin, who lost his life 
at Fort Meigs, while bravely leading his regiment against the British 
and the savages in the war of the revolution. Such is the noble 
and gallant blood that runs in the veins of the heroic, devoted 
daughter.

strength and stature. He bad tbe frame of a Grreek

himself. He was very far from being a quarrelsome or 
bad man, but he often interposed his strength to prevent 
difficulties. He was always doing generous and self- 
sacrificing things, and was a pet among men of rude life.

Dea. Stephen, and his brother Timothy began public life together 
as the first settlers of Murrayfield, now Chester, a ruountain town, 17 
miles west of Southampton, their native place. Tall, stalwart 
young men, with strong hands and hearts, they went out into the 
wilds together and cleared from the native forest adjoining farms 
on which they lived through life. Their way was through an un- 
broken forest with no track for their guide but that of the bears 
and the deer. A single camp chest contained their frugal outfit, a 
few loaves of brown Boston bread, a cheese, a ball of butter and two 
or three tow shirts, each grasping one handle of the chest with one 
hand and carrying his axe in the other, they set forward in 1763, 
fir their wild mountain laud home. As they rested at frequent 
intervals they niarked the trees with their axes to guide their way 
back to their native place. Their farms were given them on condi- 
tion that each one, within the space of three years from June, 1762, 
should build a dwelling house on his lot, 24ft. by 18 and 7 feet stud, 
and have 7 acres well cleared, and brought to English grass, or 
ploughed, and actually settled, by a family on the farm, and continue 
such family for a period of six years, and within 8 years settle a 
Protestant minister. Stephen and Timothy, are recorded among 
those who organized the Congregational church in Chester, Nov. 14, 
1769, of which the former was the first deacon.

droughts ; in 1746, a severe frost on 12tli of August killed al- 
most their entire crop of corn; in 1749, there was no rain except one 
small shower from March until wheat harvest. Not a handful of hay 
could be gathered at the time of haying, but the rains in autumn 
gave a good crop of rowen. These details have been selected from 
the Centennial Address of the Rev. B. B. Edwards, to illustrate the 
perils, hardships and self-denials with which our forefathers esta- 
lished their settlements " for the furtherance of the public weal and 
the propagation of the gospeL" 

They were subject not only to the relentless wars with savages at 
home, but with foreign foes in the French war, for a series of years. 
When in 1745, Cape Breton was reduced by New England forces 
under Glen. Pepperill, Elias Lyman went from Southampton, as a 
private in this expedition. In the expedition to Crown Point, in 
1755, in the capitulation of Fort William Henry, followed by the 
treacherous massacre of the garrison and soldiers, in 1757, in the 
siege of Ticonderoga, 1758, and in the capture, we believe, of 
Quebec, by Wolfe, 1759, the inhabitants of this town were re- 
presented by their quota of men. Then again these military 
sufferings and sacrifices were soon followed by the accummulated 
horrors of the Revolutionary war, 

1 Dea. Stephen Lyman^, eldest son of Elia^, Moses\ 
Moses^, Johif, Richard}, 1742-1812, Southampton, was b. 
iu Northampton, Sept. 8, 1742. His father, soon after his 
birth, removed to Southampton, where he lived till about 
the year 1767 ; he then removed to Merrjfield, afterwards 
named Chester, where he lived and cleared the land which 
was then a wilderness, being one of the first settlers in the 
town. 

He married, Oct. 23, 1770, Anna Blair, of Western 
Mass. He raised a family of ten children, and died Dec. 
11, 1810, aged 70 years ; Anna, his wife, died Dec. 16, 1768.

town. The Pomeroys appear to have made some improvements 
early in the eighteenth century. The tradition is that they built 
their first houses in 1722 or 1724. The first meeting on record of 
the proprietors was held March 21, 1730. This was an adjourn- 
ment from Jan. 31. In this a committee was appointed to make 
an equitable division and assignment of the land to the original pro- 
prietors. The division was made by lot to thirty individuals, on 
condition that they should make improvements and erect buildings 
within a specified time. In Dec. 22, 1732, Ensign John Baker and 
Moses Lyman, of Northampton, were appointed by that town to lay 
out a highway so as to accommodate the new settlement. That 
year two houses had been erected in the precinct. 

In May, 1733, fourteen families from Northampton'joined the set- 
tlement, of whom one was that of Nathan Lyman, son of John and 
grandson of Richard. He built a house near the present residence of 
Dea. Samuel Lyman. During three or four succeedingyears, fourteen 
additional settlers took up their residence in the precinct, among 
whom was Klias Lyman then 17 years of age and grandson of 
Moses mentioned above. The new settlement was incorporated 
into the second precinct of N., July 23, 1741. The petition to the 
general court for this purpose was signed by 35, who requested to 
be set oflP with usual privileges, and that a tax of six-pence per acre 
should be laid on the whole of their tract, being 14,000 acres that 
they might be enabled to build a meeting house, settle a minister and 
have the worship of God among themselves. 

In 1743, the number of ratable polls was 31, and the valuation 
of the whole settlement £750 7s , in 1750 the polls were 62 and the 
valuation £1205 2s. 9d. Their meeting house was not completed 
until several years later. The church was first occupied for worship 
by the people sitting on the sills of the house. In Jan., 1753, a 
committee was appointed to " dignifj' the seats and the pews." At 
the ordination of the Eev. Mr. Judd, their pastor, in 1743, the church 
consisted of 63 members, 32 males and 31 females, comprising al- 
most every adult in the town. The Rev. Jonathan Edwards was 
the preacher on the occasion. For settlement, Mr. Judd had 200 
acres in land, 100 pounds old tenor in money, and 125 pounds in 
work ; for salary 130 pounds for 3 years, then an increase of 5 pounds 
a year until the salary amounted to 170 pounds a year. 

For several years the inhabitants were fearfully molested by the 
Indians. When they walked in the road or went into the woods in 
search of their cattle, every man carried his weapons with him, and 
in their labor in the fields some kept watch in rotation as sentinels 
to prevent surprise. A stockadeor palisade of stakes was set around 
certain houses to which the families fled for safety upon an alarm 
from the Indians. All lived in constant terror and several fell vic-

in 1817; and in 1818 he was elected state senator. In 1828 be 
was again elected senator, and was re-elected in 1830, when, at the 
close of his term, he declined a re-election. In 1833 he was the 
candidate of the Anti-Masonic and National Republican parties for 
governor. In 1850 he was again elected senator. Mr. Lyman bad 
much to do in moulding the legislation of his adopted state j and 
among the prominent public measures, to the success of which his 
influence greatly cootributed, was the construction of the Ohio canal, 
and the adjustment of the difficulty relative to theboundary between 
the states of Ohio and Michigan. 

In 1854, Mr. Lyman was elected probate judge of Portage county, 
which office he continued to hold for three successive terms. As an 
illustration of his conscientious attention to his official duties, it may 
be mentioned that during the entire period of nine years, he was 
absent from his office but fourteen days. 

Judge Lyman also took an active interest in the educational, 
moral and religious improvement of the community in which he lived, 
and always contributed liberally of his time and means to their sup- 
port. He was for many years an efficient member of the board of 
trustees of Western Reserve College. He was the very earliest 
advocate of the temperance cause, when nearly all his cotemporaries 
were openly and actively hostile to the movement; he was the uni- 
form and firm opponent of slavery and of oppression in every shape, 
advocating and successfully defending the right of free speech when 
assailed by violence. He aided in oi'ganizing the First Congrega- 
tional church and society in Ravenna, and was one of the trustees 
of the society for a period of nearly twenty-five years. 

Judge Lyman possessed a clear, well-balanced and discriminating 
mind, inflexible uprightness and unsullied purity of heart, and great 
decision of character, united with the most refined gentleness and 
tenderness, and a dignity of mind and manner peculiarly his own. 
Such a rare combination of virtues and qualities constantly drew to 
his home a large circle of cherished and valued friends, to whom he 
' always dispensed a generous hospitality. It was here — in the bosom 
of his family and among his friends — that he shone the bright- 
est and took captive the affections ; it was here that he was most 
loved, revered and cherished; and in that inner circle, especially, 
his death created a vacuum which can never be filled.

regiment at the battle of Saratoga; and as a mark of honor for 
meritorious services, he was deputed to convey to General Washington 
the official report of that important victory. His uncle, the Hon. 
Samuel Lyman, was a member of the first congress elected under 
the constitution of the United States. 

Mr. Lyman was reared upon a farm, where he was taught those 
habits of industry, economy, self-reliance and self control, and those 
principles of virtue, which constitute the foundation of true manly 
character. He early manifested a desire for, and determined to 
obtain a liberal education. After the usual preparation, he entered 
Williams College, and graduated in 1810. While a member of 
college, he wrote out and solemnly adopted, on his nineteenth birth- 
day, the following resolution as the rule of his life : 

" Goshen, Connecticut, July 19, 1808. 
" The will of God shall be my rule of life." 

Shortly after his graduation, he entered the law school at Litch- 
field, then under the charge of Judge Gould, where, by diligent 
attention to his studies, and the spotless purity of his life, he won 
the respect and afi'ection of his distinguished teacher, and of all those 
associated with him. While connected with the law school, he wrote 
out and adopted this further rule of life : 

" LitcTifleld, Connecticut, December 13, 1812. 
" The Priuce of Peace shall be my Guide." 

After leaving the law school at Litchfield, Mr. Lyman proceeded 
to Pittsburgh, Pa., where he spent several months in the office of 
the Hon. Henry Baldwin, one of the justices of the Supreme Court 
of the United States, in order more fully to perfect himself in his 
legal studies. From thence, in the early part of the year 1814, he 
emigrated to Ohio, was admitted to the bar, and established himself 
permanently at Eavenna, Portage county. Here, before he had 
tried a single cause, he adopted and wrote out the following resolu- 
tion, as the daily rule of his professional life : 

" Ravenna, Ohio, April 25, 1814. 

" Having adopted the profession of the law to procure a livelihood, I vrill 
practice it through life, always governed by a lofty and sacred sense of honor 
and perfect rectitude. I will do all the good 1 can to those with whom I 
may be called to associate. 1 will never allow myself to indulge a feeling 
of revenge, either for insult or injury." 

These " rules of life " he always carried about his person, and he 
paid to them such practical obedience, that all might see, and none 
mistake, his principles of action ; and neither in domestic, private, 
professional nor public life, was he ever known to depart from this 
law which he had prescribed to himself. It might well be said of 
him that he was upright before God and man. 

Though by temperament unobtrusive and retiring, Mr. Lyman 
was frequently called to occupy public stations. In 1816 he was 
elected to the lower branch of the State Legislature ; was reelected

day, and for a geniality and integrity of character that secured to 
him popularity and respect among the whole mercantile community. 
He formed a very intimate and extensive business acquaintance 
throughout the south and southwest. 

Depending chiefly upon this acquaintance, and his reputation 
for energy and integrity, he finally embarked in business on his own 
account. He established a grocery, jobbing and commission busi- 
ness, and became a large receiver of cotton, and other southern pro- 
ducts. From year to year his business increased, until it became 
one of the most extensive in New York. At a later date, he 
organized the Knickerbocker Life Insurance Company, of which 
he became, and still is, president. This was in 1853, and he has 
now held the presidency of the company for over nineteen years. 
The organization and successful management of such an institution 
as a life insurance company requires very high business capability. 
In this case Mr. Lyman has met these requirements to the utmost 
degree. The whole system of organization and business has been 
arranged and developed under his personal direction. He has held 
no sinecure office, but one which called for the highest general 
business ability as well as knowledge as to this particular branch, 
and a personal resolution which could defy and overcome every 
kind of obstacle. 

In his business character Mr. Lyman is remarkable for great ex- 
ecutive powers, reliable judgment, and system and order in regard to 
all that he directs or undertakes. He has a keen and critical ob- 
servation ; nothing escapes him that he ought to see or know, and ' 
still he does not seem to be giving more than the ordinary attention 
to matters. In fact, thoroughness, energy, intelligence and system 
are purely force of habit with him. As a clerk, as a merchant, and 
now, in his executive capacity, his success has been based on these, 
rather than, as with so many, upon mere shrewdness and good fortune. 
His whole life has been a settled plan and purpose, followed with 
zeal and courage, and wiierein action and reason have ever been made 
to accord. His character will bear this close analysis, for it is a 
strong and peculiar one. Those who come under its influence soon 
feel its scope and power, and to the supereficial observer, he appears 
not less the master of will.

The following sketch of Mr. Lyman's career in business is taken 
from one of the journals of the day. 

Among the most intelligent and efficient members of the business 
communitjr of the city of New York may be named Erastus Lyman, 
Esq. He was b. at Groshen, Litchfield county, Connecticut, Nov. 
29th, 1817. He is the son of the late Erastus Lyman, of Cour.eeti- 
cut, who was a merchant in that state for over forty years, and also 
a prominent politician and holder of several state offices. After the 
close of his political career, he turned his attention to farming, and 
d. from an accident at the age of eighty-six years. His son Ei'astus 
lived on the farm, and devoted himself to the care of the horses and 
cattle, and, in the summer, worked in the harvest-field. 

At the age of twelve years, he left home for New Haven, with 
the view of taking some preparatory studies. In a few months, 
however, his health failed, and he was obliged to go into the 
mountain districts, where he again gave his attention to agricultural 
pursuits. Having regained his health, he returned to New Haven, 
where he entered a retail store, in which he remained some two years. 

He commenced at the lowest round of the ladder, fearing neither 
drudgery nor toil, and at once developed a great tact for business. 
He had found the exact sphere in which he could best develop his 
talents and energies. Bargaining and selling, speculation and en- 
terprise, system and energy, all appealed to qualities which he pos- 
sessed in a most marked degree. 

At length he determined to seek a wider field in the city of New 
York. Entering the employment of one of the then leading dry- 
goods houses, he threw his whole energy and mind into the duties 
of the position. This, in the beginning, was a very inferior one ; 
but, true to his antecedents in New Haven, it did not prevent him 
from aspiring to the highest. He applied himself with a diligence 
that did not go unrewarded. He rose from from clerkship to clerk- 
ship, until he became the head salesman of the house. He was 
noted as one of the most clear-headed, enterprising clerks of his

Erastus Lyman', a man and a Christian of no ordinary stature, 
has fallen in our midst; of uncommon capacity and of inestimable 
value to the community. Self-made, or rather made by circum- 
stances incident to a life of bold business adventure in all parts of 
this country as it was- fifty years ago ; with more than an average 
amount of natural endowments, actuated under the pressure and the 
promptings of an indomitable purpose, he rose to prominence and an 
influence indicative of his character. In him, as a man with re- 
markable physical energy, were combined great mental activity and 
a strong moral sense. He became associated with the prominent 
men of this country and state, in conducting and adjusting im- 
portant business matters, and enjoyed a high reputation abroad as a 
counselor and an executor in financial afi"airs. 

We can point our young men to his regularity and punctuality at 
every place where duty called him, to his readiness for every good 
word and work, to his promptness in saying and doing whatever he 
had to say or do; and to his ready and cheerful response to almost 
every call of charity, and say to them : " Go ye and do likewise,"

professor of religion. He engaged extensively in commercial pur- 
suits, first in partnership with Elihu Lewis, of Groshen, from 1793 
to 1797, then with his brother Erastus, until 1827, when they 
dissolved their partnership by dividing their property into equal 
parts as nearly as possible and bidding for the choice, which fell to 
Erastus at a premium of 400 dollars. From this time to their 
decease, each cultivated his own farm. He was a man of superior 
mind, much above mediocritjr. His manners were polished and he 
was distinguished for politeness. 

In mercantile pursuits he was a correct and successful business 
man. Through a long course of years he successively sustained 
most if not all the offices in the gift of the town. He represented 
the town many times in the General Assembly and long acted as 
a civil magistrate.

In the militia. Col. Lyman held in succession every grade of 
offioe from that of corporal to colonel. During the war he was fre- 
quently in the army, sometimes by draft, sometimes as a volunteer 
on sudden alarms. He went with the recruits from Groshen, to join 
the Northern army, before the surrender of Burgoyne. When 
the call came to the town for troops in the Revolutionary war, his 
company was called together. When formed in line they were told 
how many men were wanted and those willing to volunteer were re- 
quested to step forward. Every man in the company marched to the 
front. Then every fifth man was ordered to the rear and those 
were taken. 

Col. Lyman was commander of a body of troops stationed on the 
night of the 7th of Oct., 1777, to watch the movements of Burgoyne's 
army, and was the first to inform Gen. Gates, on the morning of 
the 8th, that they had deserted their camp. In consideration of 
his important services, he was honored with the duty of conveying to 
Gen. Washington personally the first intelligence of the battle of 
Saratoga, and the surrender of the British, under Burgoyne. He 
was also commander of the guard over the illustrious and gallant 
taptive Major Andr^, at and previous to the time of his execution. 

In civil life. Col. Lyman sustained many offices in the gift of the 
town. He was a man of strong mind and great energy and decision 
of character, of the strictest integrity, conscientious in the observance 
of the sabbath and of the daily worship of God in his family. 
Though not a professor of religion, vice and immorality never failed

brother of Judge Ellsworth, lived and d. there leaving 
3 sons and 3 daus. 

Dea. Moses Lyman, bought and cleared two 50 acre lots for his 
farm, on Town Hill, where he built first, a log house, and, in time, 
a framed house, which again gave place to the brick house on the 
homestead, which was occupied by his grandson, Moses Lyman, 
Esq. This house is still in the possession of the family, and has 
been occupied by the first son of the same name to the present time. 

At the town meeting, Dec. 6, 1739, Mr. Lyman, then 26 years 
of age, was appointed collector and treasurer, a grand juror, in 1744, 
tything man, in 1743 ; in 1746, one of committee of six for the set- 
tlement of the Rev. Mr. Heaton, as pastor of the church, with whom 
he in connection with others was soon in controversy respecting his 
Armenian sentiments, as they alleged. This controversy resulted in 
the dismissal of Mr. Heaton, in June, 1753. In May, 1759, Mr. 
Lyman was chosen deacon of the church which office he continued 
to hold through life, about nine years. 

Dea. Lyman, and his wife are characterized as religious, exemplary, 
industrious, economical and liberal to the poor. He was remarkable 
for his endeavors to make peace and reconcile difficulties, of sound 
judgment and for many years a magistrate, he exercised a controlling 
influence in the town. It is said of Mr. Lyman that he was a father to 
the poor, eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame, relieving the father- 
less and helpless, and making the widow's heart to sing for joy. 

He was a magistrate many years. As the representative of the 
town in the general assembly he attended 14 sessions. His judg- 
ment was good and much depended on. His intellectual acquire- 
ments and improvements in the knowledge of things, human and 
divine, were superior. 

Sabbath Houses. — The Sabbath-day houses of that age were a 
characteristic institution which has passed away with the generation 
that frequen ted them. Dea. Lyman was one of the first to erect one of 
these near the church. They were built for the accommodation 
of families during the intermission of public worship. The fami- 
lies of the proprietors were the first and principal occupants, but 
the houses were open also to other worshipers. Here the entire 
family were expected to spend the hour of intermission. The dea- 
con was accustomed to bring the dinner for his family in his saddle 
bass on horseback. The dinner was spread upon a small table, and 
a wooden bottle supplied them drink. Mr. Buell, who was a joint 
proprietor of the house, usually asked the blessing and the deacon 
returned thanks. All arose from their seats when the blessing was

In 1821, Mr. Lyman married Miss Mary E. Henderson of New 
York — -a lady of rare personal attractions and mental accomplisli- 
ments, who blessed his home by the birth of three daughters and a 
son. In that home for thirteen years, he found all the comforts 
which a sweet accord of temper, books, the converse of highly culti- 
'vated friends, and abundant means of doing good can command. 

In 1833, he had the sorrow of losing his oldest daughter, just as 
she was arriving at a most interesting period of life, and developing 
the powers which had been wisely cultivated by careful training. 
In 1836, he was called to endure the still heavier loss of the mother 
of that child, who for fourteen years had been the object of a devo- 
tion rarely equaled, who had shared all his cares and interests, and 
had repaid his affection with all the sympathy it could not fail to 
call forth. Principally to gratify her taste, he had purchased, in 
the previous year, the estate in Waltham, which formerly belonged 
to Gov. Gore, and had already improved and embellished it with re- 
markable taste and judgment. This great sorrow, however, rendered 
it impossible for him to continue where every flower and tree was a 
memento of his loss, and he removed to the place in Brookline, 
which he renovated with the same taste and skill he had shown at 
Waltham, and which have rendered the house and grounds re- 
markable among the many beautiful residences in the vicinity of 
Boston. In the year following the loss of his wife, his second 
daughter became so ill as to render a change of climate desirable, 
and he took her to Cuba, with the hope of restoring her to her 
accustomed strength. It proved in vain, however, and his own 
health was so much affected by his repeated afflictions, that ho was 
obliged to remain at the south on his own account for several months. 

In the summer of 1848 he thought it advisable to go again to 
Europe, principally for the benefit of the health of his sgn. He re- 
mained abroad a year, and was in Frankfort, and in Paris, during 
some of the most exciting moments of that revolutionary period. 
The voyage home was a rough one, and proved a severe trial of the 
remaining strength of his constitution, and he reached his home in 
a state of great exhaustion. He remained in a feeble but nearly 
stationary condition for eight or ten days ; and complaining one 
afternoon of a sudden pain, he desired to be removed from the sofa 
to the bed. In a short time he became apparently insensible, and 
expired on the eighteenth of July, 1849. Thus ended, in its ma- 
turity and strength, the life of one who was in several respects a 
remarkable and memorable man, of warm affections, of cultivated 
taste and sagacity, of -delightful manners and incomparable temper, 
conscientious in the performance of all the duties and amenities of 
life, and thoughtful of those whose only claim on him was the want 
of opportunities which he had enjoyed. The recollection of his fine 
person and his dignified, polished and amiable manners, can survive 
only in the memory of his friends; but the remembrance of his 
virtues, his benevolence, his exactness, liis kindness to all about him, 
will continue through many generations in the institution to which

he so largely contributed, and which is an honorable memorial at 
once to him and to the community of which he was a part. Besides 
large donations during his life, he left by will, $10,000 to the Farm 
School; $10,000 to the Massachusetts Horticultural Society ; and 
$50,000 to the State Reform School. Total for the Reform 
School, $72,500.

volunteer aide-de-camp, on the staff of Major Gen. Meade, command- 
ing army of the Potomac. Was present in all subsequent movements, 
including those on Mine Run and Centreville (1863), and the great 
battles of the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, &c. &c. He 
served during the whole investment of Petersburg, and in the route 
and pursuit of Lee's army. He was one of the few officers who were 
allowed to ride through the rebel lines after the surrender at Ap- 
pomattox Court House ; where he saw Lee, Longstreet^ Gordon, etc. 
etc. Since the war he has lived at Brookline, Mass., as before, 
and has continued to interest himself more or less in science, and has 
also given some attention to the reformation of juvenile offenders, in 
which his father was so much engrossed. Col. Lyman has made 
valuable contributions to natural science, in the current and occa- 
sional literature of the day, among which are a report on the 
fisheries in Massachusetts, on fish culture and on forces.

JohnLyman^, was a man like most of the connection, " very much 
set in his ways." When once he had decided that a measure was 
right, or had deliberately formed an opinion on any subject, it be- 
came a changeless sentiment, from which he seldom or never 
swerved. He emigrated to Jericho, Vt., soon after the Revolutionary 
war, among the first settlers in the state. He was well adapted to 
enjoy pioneer life as a mighty hunter and an accurate marksman.

In the winter season lie would leave his home in the morning and 
return late at night, occasioning by his long absence deep anxiety 
to his wife and children ; but, not unfrequently, on the following 
day he would bring in with his team, as the fruit of his hunting ex- 
cursion, two or three deer, a wolf or a bear, or both. Even in old 
age, when leaning on his staff, he retained the skillful use of his gun. 
Perhaps his characteristic as a successful hunter, together with 
his personal appearance, erect in stature, of dark complexion, with 
small black eyes, gave rise to the impression that he possessed 
Indian blood. On one occasion on taking lodgings at the public 
inn, he was invited by the deacon of the church to his house as the 
Indian preacher who was to be their supply on the sabbath, a 
mistake which his native humor and love of adventure keenly en- 
joyed. Although retiring and reticent in character, he was remark- 
ably social with his friends. He was a man of deep thought and 
sound judgment, an earnest Christian and a constant attendant on 
the worship of God. Living three miles from church, he was 
always in the house of God with his family upon the sabbath, and a 
punctual attendant upon the meetings of the church during the 
week. It was his highest joy to witness the return of his children 
to God and welcome their admission to the church. As a bold and 
fearless soldier and sure marksman he served faithfully his country 
in the war of the Revolution ; and, in the last years of his life, 
received a pension which he delighted to distribute to his children 
and grandchildren on their visits to him.

The parents of this numerous family have lived for several years 
with their only surviving daughter Mrs. Connors, Butternuts, N. J, 
Mrs Richardson d. Feb. 28, 1869. She was the daughter of Capt. 
John Lyman, who emigrated from Salisbury, Conn., to Chittenden 
county soon after the Revolutionary war. Her parents carried to 
that then new country the religion of the Puritans, rearing their 
numerous family in the faith of the gospel. Laura was the second 
daughter, and very early in life was the subject of deep religious 
impressions. She could not recollect when she did not love the 
Saviour, and so thought it wrong to tell her pastor she did not 
when she felt love toward Grod and his people, and loved to pray. 
She was much troubled, however, because she knew not just the 
time of her conversion. Thus, sometimes hoping and sometimes 
doubting, she passed her early life. 

Marrying quite young, and removing to Westford, Vt., she made 
a public profession, uniting with the Congregational church, under 
the care of Rev. Simeon Parmelee. Again removing to Jericho and ■ 
finding herself now in the midst of a powerful revival, she sought 
oftheLordan assurance that she was indeed his. After a pro- 
tracted agony of spirit, the assurance was given her. Her joy was 
unbounded; doubts and fears all removed. Thus commenced anew 
her ardent devotion to Grod. Ever after she gave her testimony in 
the weekly meetings for Christ. Often she had precious seasons of 
prayer with her children. Once when the father and other mem- 
bers of the family were at church she poured out her soul in the little 
prayer meeting, and to her great joy had good evidence that three 
of those dear children were then converted. About one year after, 
those same dear children d. leaving most comforting evidence that 
they were not dead, but " gone home to Heaven," in the submissive 
and expressive language of their mother.

At the funeral of the third, the following lines, by Mrs. R/s 
request, were sung : 

How can I sink with such a prop 

As my eternal God, 
Who bears the earth's huge pillars up, 
And spreads the heavens abroad. 

She had faith in a covenant-keeping God, always finding great 
comfort in dedicating her children to God by baptism. 

Daily now she seemed to be growing in grace. Fifteen years be- 
fore her death she was raised again by a rich spiritual experience, to a 
higher, purer state of heavenly enjoyment, often saying that her last 
days were being her best ; that her peace was like a river. In all her 
conversation the love of God was the absorbing topic. Only a few 
days before her death she conversed most cheerfully and clearly of 
her coming decease, and the ground of her hope. She was reminded 
of the high opinion every where entertained of her Christian charac- 
ter, and then asked if it was not this — her holy life — that now so 
much comforted her ? " Oh ! " she said, in great surprise, " I am 
nothing ; my whole comfort is in my Jesus, who shed his precious 
blood for me." 

She seems daily to have contemplated death with triumph, as' 
being the gate to endless life. Finally, with the going down of the 
sabbath sun, she gently sank to rest, without a struggle. Among 
other requests was this, that her friends should not mourn but re- 
joice, when they should hear of her decease. 

The husband still lives, waiting in the beauty of holiness, to re- 
join her in the skies. — Selected Ohitiiary.

Col. Frederick Tremain. The brief and brilliant career of this 
youthful warrior, which for heroic daring in action, coolness, con- 
summate skill and generalship has seldom been surpassed, deserves a 
further record than time and space will now allow. Parental affec- 
tion has fondly and eloquently said. 

To the pen of history belongs the noble task of recording the 
military operations in which he had the honor to participate during 
the ever memorable campaign of 1864. And yet, when we consider 
the bloody and obstinate nature of the battles that were fought — the 
glorious and unconquerable resolution which was displayed in con- 
ducting the movements of the Union armies — the immense loss of 
human life — the masterly combinations of those armies — the vast 
extent of country which constituted the field of their display — the

number of those brilliant raids performed by the cavalry slone, 
through the heart of an enemy's country, each one constituting an 
interesting history of itself — the toil, the sacrifices, the fatigue, 
sufferings and perils to which the heroic soldiers in those armies 
were continually subjected, and to which, with unflinching fortitude 
and cheerfulness, they submitted — when we consider too, the in- 
numerable deeds of personal bravery, performed both by ofl&cers 
and men — the holy patriotic purposes by which the great body of 
those armies was prompted — the unselfish willingness they mani- 
fested to sacrifice their lives for the preservation of the honor, the in- 
tegrity, and the unity of their country — and, finally, the glorious 
and successful results of all these operations, we may well doubt 
whether history will ever contain more than an outline skeleton of 
them all. 

He participated in no less than twenty-five battles and skirmishes 
in ten months, rose high in rank and achieved at the age of 21 
years a reputation for military qualifications and talents which were 
the admiration of all and might well be the envy of renowned 
veterans. The scene of his splended achievements was the famous 
battles of the Wilderness and in connection with them the ever 
memorable raids of Gren. Sheridan in which he acted a conspicuous 
and brilliant part until struck down by the deadly aim of a rebel 
sharpshooter. 

Col. Tremain went to the field in the fall of 1862, as Adjutant 
of the Seventh Volunteer Artillery. Not relishing the monotony 
and inactivity of garrison life — to which duty the regiment was 
assigned — he sought and obtained a transfer, and was detailed to 
staff" service in the field, with Gren. G-regg, in the cavalry corps of Gen. 
Sheridan. And there he found an abundant opportunity for the 
display of his high soldierly qualities. He was foremost in every 
battle in which that corps engaged, and which has rendered it and 
its heroic leaders famous in the annals of the war. He was in that 
ever memorable ride from the Rapidan to the James, during which 
a score of battles were fought, millions of the enemy's property 
destroyed, the outer fortifications of Richmond entered, and prodi- 
gies of valor displayed by every member of the heroic band. On 
the James, he joined in most of the cavalry reconnoissances and 
raids which have passed into history as among the most dramatic of 
the war, and fell while engaged in driving back the rebel force 
which attempted to check the resistless progress of our troops. 

Col. Tremain was a young man to be admired and loved. He 
combined, with a noble presence, winning manners and attractive 
social qualities. As a soldier, he was prompt and fearless. He was 
a brave rider, and coveted nothing so much as perilous adventure. 
He early attracted the attention of his superior ofl&cers by his manly 
bearing and gallant deeds, and earned his several promotions by 
his heroic achievements. 

Educated, young and chivalrous, he speedily won the confidence 
of his superiors, and promotion soon followed the development of 



378 Lyman Genealogy, 

the soldierly accomplishmeuts which distinguished him in the many 
battles in which he participated. No better evidence of his merits 
as a soldier need be cited than the fact that he earned the rank of 
lieut. colonel, at the early age of twenty-one. The history of this 
war, participated in by so many of the youth of the country, and 
offering unprecedented opportunities for promotion, affords but few 
instances of one so young attaining this distinction. 

Four cousins, differing but little in age, entered the service at 
about the same time, all bright and promising young men, prompted 
by the highest sentiments of patrioti-m and duty. Of these, three 
lost their lives in the service of their country. Their names are : 
Lieutenant Walter Tremain, Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick L. Tre- 
main, and Major Frank Tremain.

The conversion of David Lyman'^, forms one of the interesting 
incidents of his life, which occurred when he was near fifty years of 
age, under the faithful labors of the Rev. A. Nettleton, and is 
narrated in the following abstract of a letter to his brother : 

Salisbury, 1815. 

Grod in his infinite mercy has been pleased to bring my feet 
from the pit of miry clay, and established them on the rock, Christ 
Jesus, and I ought to bless his holy name for it. He has been 
pleased to bless, as we have reason to hope, four of our children. 
The work began about three months ago, and has been progressing 
rapidly ever since. Scarce a day falls but more or less, are brought 
from darkness to light. There are now more than 120 who indulge 
hope, children from 12 years old, to the man of 70, are subjects of 
the work. 

I will give you a short account of my experience. I have been 
in an awfully stupid state of mind. I had tried deism and athe- 



Desceijdants of Moses. 379 

ism, but was not satisfied and finally thought that morality was the 
best religion, and that God would do me justice and not punish me 
much. The Bible I put little or no confidence in. When the 
awakening first began, I thought little of the work of Divine grace un- 
til two of my daughters expressed a hope in redeeming grace. That 
awakened me to a sense of my condition as a sinner, and I continued 
in this frame of mind for three or four weeks, until I was brought 
to pray that God would be merciful to me a sinner. I \\d.di faith to 
believe that if I went to the throne of grace, I should not perish, 
therefore, I drew up the resolution to go, and if I perished, to perish 
there. 

About this time, Calvin, aged 12 years, was brought out wonder- 
fully clear. He began to tell me how I had lived and the awful 
situation I was in. I was sensible of it before he began, but it 
came with such force, and such anxiety that he appeared to have 
for me, that it cut me down. I trembled like Felix, and said " God 
be merciful to me a sinner." I continued most of the night crying 
for mercy, and have reason to hope that God pardoned my sins that 
night. Oh how precious are God's promises to me. The Bible is 
now my study, and I delight in its perusal. Every thing appears 
new. I have but just begun to live, and I pray " God that I may 
live the remainder of my days in his service." 

He remained faithful to the close of life. The blessed results of 
that revival remain to the present day, and well illustrates the 
revivals of that age.

12 years, but soon relapsed into a state of indifference, and 
remained so nntil his last sickness, when he was fully 
restored to the divine favor, and his son George C, writes 
that he d. happy, perfectly resigned to the will of heaven, 
assured of eternal life hereafter. Hockpori, N. Y.

The following chapters on pioneer life written by Samuel Lyman, 
son of David Lyman, who left Salisbury, Connecticut, in 1817, and 
settled in Rose, N. Y. are a quaint and amusing illustration of the 
spirit of the man and of the age : 

The Third Book of Maccabees, 
chapter i. 

1. Now there dwelt in one of the eastern provinces an aged man, 
a man of renown, of the lineage of Simeon, and there were born unto 
him twelve children, six sons and six daughters, and they were 
comely in stature, and beautiful to look upon, and they were brought 
up under the law of Moses and the Saybrook platform, and they 
swerved not from the precepts of their Father but observed the or- 
dinances of the law blameless. 

2. And when his eldest son had grown to man's estate, he took 
to wife one of the daughters of the land, and when children were 
born unto him, he said, behold the land is too straight for us, and it 
was told him of a goodly land, lying west of the great mountains — 
a province, flowing with milk and honey. 

3. And he communed with his wife and said, thou seest the 
straits to which we shall be driven, behold the land is too straight for 
lis, let us arise and seek a habitation beyond the great river, for 
ourselves and little ones, where there is room for our flocks and our 
herds, lest we come to poverty. 

4. And the saying pleased her, and she said, thou hast well spoken. 
Now do as thou hast said, that we may find sustenance for ourselves 
and little ones. 

5. And he gathered together his substance and took his wife and 
little one, with seventy shekels of silver, and bade his kindred fare- 
well and departed. 

6. And he journeyed westward over the great mountains of the. 
province, and on the third day he arrived at the great river of the 
country, and he passed over it, and behold a level country opened 
before him. 

7. And he pursued his journey for the space of seventeen days, 
and on the eighteenth he lifted up his eyes and said, we are drawing, 
near our journey's end, and now behold, I have a kinsman living in 
this country, let us therefore seek him out and lodge with him, 
peradventure he may succor and befriend us, seeing we are strangers 
in the land. 

8. And he inquired of the inhabitants of the land, saying, 
know ye such and such a man living near ? and they answered, 
y3a, we know him, and he dwelleth with us in the Valley of Roses. 

9. And he hastened and drew near the place and alighted, and 
presented himself before the man, and when he had saluted him he 
said : I am a stranger from a far country, and I coure to seek a 
residence in this land. And the man said — Whose son art thou ? 



382 Lyman Genealogy. 

And he said, I am the son of thy sister, whom she bare unto my 
father. 

10. And the man said, Come in, thou blessed of the Lord, and 
tarry with us. And he ran and drew water and provided provender 
for his oxen and he sat meat before them, and they did eat and 
were satisfied. 

11. And he said, now tell us of thy father and mother, and all thy 
kindred and of their welfare. And he told him all and kept 
nothing from him, and of the mighty men of renown in his country. 
And the man rejoiced exceedingly. 

12. And he said, behold the land is before thee, choose thee out 
a place which liketh thee best. If thou likest it not on the left, 
then turn thou to the right, for the place is large and the whole 
land is before thee. 

13. And on the morrow he journeyed northward, and eastward 
a little way, and behold a level plain like the plains of Amram opened 
before him, and the trees thereof were sturdy as the oaks of Bashan, 
tall and stately as the cedars of Lebanon and their tops reached up 
toward heaven, and he lifted up his eyes, and looked northward and 
eastward, and he said, this suiteth me. 

14. And he conferred with the magnates of the land, and said 
unto them, what must I give thee for the land running thus far 
northward, and eastward, and southward ? and they said, thou shalt 
have it for 750 pieces of silver. 

15. And he unloosed the mouth of his sack, and weighed out to 
them a part of the price, even 40 pieces, and he called witnesses, 
and it was sealed unto him, and his children after him forever. 

16. And he set up his Ebenezer, and pitched his tent, and he 
called the name of the place Peth, which name it also bears unto 
this day. And the man Sambo was twenty and three years old, 
when he first entered into Peth. 

CHAPTER II. 

3. And it came to pass on the twenty-first day of the second month, 
that he removed from the Valley of Roses to his own house. And it 
was winter. And the hoar-frost lay on the face of the country, to 
the depth of forty and eight inches. And he drew forth his axe of 
steel and swung it with vigor against the trees of the forest, and 
.they fell prostrate before him. 

2. And he clave the trees asunder, and drew the wood to his 
house and kindled great fires on his hearth, which ceased not to burn, 
night and day, till-the frost ceased from the earth. 

3. And at the end of forty and five days, the south wind began 
to blow, and the frost dissolved, and all the low places and pools 
of the country were filled with water. And the waters subsided, and 
the man said : I will go forth to my labors. 

4. And the forest resounded with the blows of his axe, and the 
trees came tumbling with a mighty crash to the earth and he cut them 
asunder, and rolled them in piles, one upon the other, and set them 
on fire, and they were consumed. 



Descendants of Moses. 383 

5. And lie prepared the ground and sowed it with wheat and corn 
and legumens, and the earth yielded her increase, some thirty, some 
sixty and some 9, hundred fold. And the man rejoiced greatly in 
the work of his hands. 

6. And he spake to his wife and said, after a few more years of 
toil, and when this wilderness shall be subdued before us, we shall 
then have a goodly heritage, where our flocks and herds can feed 
in green pastures and lie down bef«ide the still waters, for the land 
is fruitful and level as the garden of Eden and will produce all 
manner of fruits in their season, equal to the clusters of Eshcol. 

7. And he rose with the lark, buoyant with, as it were, the strength 
of an unicorn, and he built stalls for his oxen, and outhouses for the 
products of the land, and he got him herds of cattle. 

8. And when the season was far spent, and the products of the 
land had been gathered in, the inhabitants of the land said to him, 
our children are growing up in ignorance without schools. Come 
thou and teach them for ninety days, and we will give thee for 
thy hire, thirty-six pieces of silver. 

9. And his wife said, go my husband, for the oil is clean gone 
in the cruise, and the meal runs low in the barrel, and there are but 
two pieces of silver left in the sack ; go, therefore, that we may re- 
plenish our stores. 

10. And he consented, and went. And when the ninety days 
had expired, he said, now pay me my hire, and he took the thirty- 
six pieces of silver, and brought them to his wife, saying : put them 
in the sack, and buy such things as are needed for our sustenance; 
till our own fields yield us a full supply. 

11. And an angel appeared to him in a dream by night, and 
said : I have watched thy outgoings and thy incomings, these many 
days since thou hast been a sojourner in this wilderness, and how 
thou hast walked before me in thy integrity, and now I will reveal 
to thee things that must shortly come to pass. 

12. And now evil genii are let loose in the land, and they are 
now going to and fro in the land and walking up and down in it, 
and they will pour out the vials of their wrath on the fountains of 
water, and all the pools shall become green, and the miasma shall 
overflow the country. 

13. And sickness will follow, and death on his pale horse will tra- 
verse thy streets, and lamentation and woe shall be heard in thy gates, 
and thou canst not escape, for thou must pass through the mill, down 
through the hopper, between the upper and the nether millstones and 
pass out through the cogwheel. Bat like my servant Job, stick thou 
to thine integrity, and like him thou shalt come off more than con- 
que or, 

14. And thy captivity shall be turned, and thou shalt.be greatly 
blessed in thy basket and in thy store, and thy seed shall be greatly 
multiplied and they shall inherit the land, and thou shalt live to a 
good old age, and thou shalt yet behold thy children's children in

troops gamboling in the streets of Petit; and he awoke and behold 
it was a dream. And he told it to his wife and she marveled greatly- 

CHAPTER III. 

1. And about the beginning of barley harvest when the sun 
shineth in his strength, he assayed to go to the field as at other 
times, and he thrust in his sickle and it fell from his hand, for his 
hand shook like the aspen leaf, and he hastened to his house and 
said, kindle a fire and wrap me in blankets that I may get heat, for the 
icy hand of death is upon me. And a mighty fever followed, and 
he said, bring me a drop of water to cool my tongue, for the marrow 
of my bones is on fire. 

2. And fore disease was upon him, and he gat no rest. Chilled 
with ague by day and scorched by fever at night, as days and weeks 
rolled on they brought him no relief. 

3. And, in anguish of spirit, he cried, 0, that I had remained 
on my own native hills, there to inhale the health-giving breezes 
wafted from their everlasting heights ! 0, that I could drink of the 
sweet, sparkling waters that gush from their thousand fountains, 
and that I could now bathe my feverish brow and aching limbs, in 
the soft, foaming waters as they dance in their onward course from 
the top of Riga, instead of these sluggish waters, which breed malaria, 
pestilence and death ! 

4. And while he was yet speaking, behold a messenger came run- 
ning, and said : A mighty tempest hath shaken the forest, and the 
trees thereof have fallen upon thy cattle and left thee none remaining. 
And his wife and little ones were also smitten with the ague. 

5. And the voice of mirth was hushed in the streets, and the 
weeks of Sundays commenced. And few went to their fields, for sore 
disease was upon them. And the crops went back to the earth, for 
none could be found to harvest them. And the man bowed his head 
to the blast, and said, My cup is filled to the brim and runneth over. 
And he covered him with sack-cloth and ashes. 

6. And he spake not again for the space of two days. Then he 
opened his mouth and said. Thy billows go over my soul and I sink 
in deep waters. Let that day be darkened, let it not be counted 
amono; the days of the year in which it was said, the man first set 
foot into Peth. And the man wept sore, for anguish was upon him, 

7. And death on his pale horse traveled his rounds. And many 
were borne to their long homes. And a wayfaring man as he 
journeyed called in, and when he saw their affliction he said, be of 
good cheer, and fear not, I will cast out this shaking devil, that he 
torment you no more and ye shall be well, if so be I can find a cer- 
tain herb which grows in the country; and he went on his way, and 
the man went with him a little way and he said, behold here it is, 
and he pulled up the herb and gave it to the man and said, steep it 
in water and drink of it, and ye shall be well. And he brought it 
to his wife and she steeped it and drank of the water, and was cured. 
The man also drank of it, but was not cured. 



Bescendants of Moses. 385 

8. And the man said, behold the woman is cured, howbeit he 
could not east it out of the man also. And it was said, this 
kind goeth not out by a decoction of roots and herbs. And the man 
shook on, and in dreamy mazes he would revisit his fatherland and 
ramble over the old wonted lots and eat of the luscious fruit of the 
old trees of the fruit-yard or drink of their generous juices fresh 
from the press 5 but only to awake to disappointment as when a 
hungry man dreameth. 

9. And when months of suffering had passed away, the man 
began to amend and his strength returned as his disease grew less, 
and he said, the bitterness of death is past, I am fast getting through 
the mill, except perchance the cogwheels. And he thanked God and 
took courage. 

10. And he gained in strength daily, the chilling blasts of winter 
were over, and the ague gone, the genial sun of spring returned to 
bless the earth and awaken to new life the vegetable kingdom, and 
the man felt its genial influence, was invigorated, and went forth 
anew rejoicing to his labors, and he toiled on and the wilderness 
receded before him. 

CHAPTER IV. 

1. Now it came to pass at the end of twelve years, as he sat musing 
on the events af the past, that he greatly desired to visit once more 
the land of his nativity, and know of the welfare of his kindred. 

2. And he said to his wife, go to, I pray thee, let me go and 
visit my kindred in the Eastern Province, and know of a surety of 
their health and of their welfare. 

B. And she said, go and the Lord prosper thee on thy journey 
thither. Go and visit thy father and mother, for they are old and 
well stricken in years; go, therefore, and see them before they die. 

4. And he arose, and put on change of raiment, and girded on 
his sandals, and took his staff in his hand, and kissed them and said, 
be of good cheer till I return in peace at the end of the full moon, 
and he departed. 

5. And he journeyed onward, till he came to the great thorough- 
fare of the country, and he took shipping .thereon, and sped on the 
way four days and nights, and he arrived at the great river, and 
passed over it. 

6. And on the fifth day, he lifted up his eyes and behold, the great 
mountains which divide the provinces were before him, and he passed 
over them and drew near to the home of his father and his mother, 
and all his kindred. 

7. And when he came in sight of his own native hills his emotions 
were unutterable, and he sat down on the ground and gazed with 
delight and wonder upon the mighty Taghanic over whose rugged 
cliffs in his younger days he bounded, like the young roe in the 
chase, after the foxes and the conies. 

8. And he said, up, I may not thus tarry, — get thee down to thy 
father's house and know of their welfare ;and he hastened and entered 



386 Lyman Genealogy. 

into the house and saluted them, and he seemed unto them as a 
wayfaring man and they knew him not. 

9. And he communed with them of their flocks and of their herds, 
and he said, I would see the master of the house if peradventure I 
may buy of him ; and they said, he is in the field ploughing and as he 
assayed to go to the field he smiled ; and his mother fixed her eyes 
upon him and she leaped from her seat and caught hold of the skirts 
of his garment and held him fast. 

10. And she said, tell me, is this our son who has been gone fi'om 
us these many years ? tell me. And he dissembled no longer, and he 
said, yea, my mother, it is indeed he who has been gone so long, thy 
very son Sambo. 

11. And she rejoiced and said, blessed be the (xod of thy fathers 
that he hath preserved thee alive and sent thee back in safety, that 
we may see thy face once more before we die. And she rejoiced as 
though she had seen the face of an angel. 

12. And they brought forth the fatted calf and made a feast of 
fat things, butter, and honey and wine on the lees well refined. And 
they did eat and drink and were merry. 

13. And when the end of the full moon drew near, he said, go to 
I pray thee, let me now return to my home and see how it fares with 
my wife and little ones. And they said, if now it must be so, bring 
thy sack for we may not send thee empty away. 

14. And they brought forth their treasures, new and old, rich ap- 
parel and changes of raiment, and put them in the sack, and his 
father brought a lordly present, even 40 shekels of silver, and 
blessed him and said, the God of thy fathers bless and protect thee 
on thy journey, and may thy posterity inherit the land and make them 
as the stars of Heavesi in multitude, and he bade them farewell and 
went on his way rejoicing. 

15. And on the fifth day at the going down of the sun he drew 
near his own house, and his wife and little ones espied him afar ofi" 
and they ran and fell on his neck and kissed him ; and he unloosed 
the sack, and when they saw the treasures he had brought them they 
were filled with exceeding great joy. 

16. And he again applied himself to his labor with renewed 
vigor, and blessings attended him in his outgoings and incomings, 
insomuch that sons were born unto him by couplets. And he 
named them after his younger brethren, and the lads grew and pro- 
spered greatly. 

17. And he waxed strong in power, and his substance increased, 
and he gat him horses and chariots, and he rode upon the high 
places of Peth. He washed his steps in butter and the rock poured 
him out rivers of oil, and he sat as a prince among his people. 

18. And he had six sons and three daughters, and among all the 
daughters of Peth there was none to vie with the daughters of Sambo. 

19. And his sons were comely in person and walked in the steps 
of their father ; and, like Recab, the son of Jonadab, drank no wine

or strong drink, and they became mighty in building up the name 
and the house of their father. 

20. And they took them wives, of such as they chose among the 
daughters of the land, and got them possessions on the right hand and 
on the left, and children were born unto them, and the heavens were 
filled with their mirth. 

21, And as Sambo sat at the gate at the entering in of the city, he 
said : Mine horn is exalted, for unto me is given a numerous progeny 
to build up my house and perpetuate my name in the archives of Peth 
forever.

Robbing, of Milton, Mass. She was b. July, 1789, and d. May 24, 
1867, a woman of remarkable beauty of person, force of character 
and goodness of heart. The children of this second marriage, were : 

43 7 Joseph, b Aug. 17, 1812 ; m. Susan Bulfinch, of Boston, 

44 8 Anne Jean, b. July 7, 1815 ; d. autumn of 1835.

43 Joseph Lyman was gifted with personal and mental endowments 
of the highest order. He was a noble example of a refined, cultivated 
gentleman and scholar. With a heart tender as that of a child, 
delicate, gentle and sensitive as that of a woman, he was a man of 
heroic fortitude, dauntless energy and perseverance in the pursuits 
of life. From the study of law he passed to that civil engineering 
mining and metallurgy, and bent all his varied attainments and 
energies for some time to the early development of the deposits 
of anthracite coal and beds of iron in Pennsylvania. The construc- 
tion of rail roads, as a means of national wealth, also strongly en- 
listed his attention, while the condition of the poor the ignorant and 
the oppressed employed his active sympathies and wakeful benevo- 
lence. The emancipation of the slave, the enfranchisement, the 
education and improvement of all classes of his fellow men was the 
study and the labor of his life. Every form of human misery he com- 
prehended in his wide wish of benevolence. " There was not a 
groan from the oppressed in the world's wide realm, that did not reach 
his ear and melt his heart. There was not a hand lifted for free- 
dom in Europe or America that he did see and bless." 

And yet he comprehended in his reading and study the wide 
range of literature, science and politics, though half his term through 
life stretched helplessly on his bed the subject of acute, excruciat- 
ing pain. Worn down with these suiferings, he yielded up his 
noble, exemplary life, Aug. 13, 1871, at Jamaica Plain, Mass., leav- 
ing a wife and daughters whose rcord has not been received.

Obituary. — Hannah Willard Lyman, daughter of the late 
Theodore Lyman, was born in " old Northampton " in 1816. Here 
amid these peaceful retreats, stately elms and lovely landscapes, the 
first years of her childhood were spent. Subsequently she removed 
with her family to Amherst, and after the distressing death of her 
elder brother, Henry Lyman, one of the missionary martyrs of Su- 
matra, she entered upon a course of preparative study at Ipswich 
Female Seminary, which was designed to fit her for the distinguished 
work which divine providence intended her to do. Miss Lyman 
commenced to teach at Gorham Academy, Maine, and she subse- 
quently taught in Mrs. Grray's Seminary for Ladies in JPetersburg, 
Virginia; but her more important work was carried on in the city of 
Montreal; surrounded by her nearest relatives, she commenced a 
select class for young ladies which speedily grew into a seminary of 
a very superior order. 

For twenty-two years, though often oppressed with anxiety, by 
sorrow, by failing health, and most of all by the deep sense of her own 
insufficiency, she faithfully persevered in her work." 

" Such earnest teaching could hardly fail to bear fruit; and she, 
who sowed often in tears, and under a discouraging sense of failure, 
was often blessed by a rich reaping time even on earth, very many 
of her beloved ' children,' as she was wont affectionately to call them, 
gave her the delight of seeing them joined to the Lord, and walking 
in the truth." Her reputation as a successful and inspiring teacher 
had been so wide-spread that she had received frequent invitations 
to take the superintendence of large public educational institutions, 
which she had uniformly declined. In 1865, however, she received 



Descendants of Benjamin. 405 

an urgent request to become first lady principal of a newly organized 
female college on a very large scale — Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, 
ani nstitution founded on a munificent bequest, with aims and re- 
sources greater than perhaps any other such institution in the world. 
She would at once have dismissed the application, shrinking from 
the responsibility, but for the suggestion contained in the letter, 
" whether in this field the Master may not have work for you to do." 
She went, and it is needless to add that she carried her principles 
with her to the stately halls of Vassar where they had indeed wider 
scope, and greater development. " It was no easy task to which she 
was called, but to that task she brought no ordinary qualifications. 
Her natural gifts, amounting almost to a genius for her profession, 
had beea enriched by an education of no ordinary range. Her early 
training in a college town of New England, her extensive acquaint- 
ance with teachers, professors and Christian ministers, her familiarity 
with many interesting questions which have of late been agitated 
respecting the education of woman, and her life-long experience in 
the actual management of the young, all made her counsel invaluable 
in the moulding of the great enterprise to which she had been 
called." She was genial but dignified, devout without austerity, 
cheerful without levity, and while very firm in all matters of prin- 
ciple and conscience, she was catholic and tolerant in respect of the 
religious convictions of others. There was nothing sickly or sen- 
timental in the type of her piety, she hated affectation and cant. 
Her clear, incisive intellect enabled her with almost unerring cer- 
tainty, to penetrate such disguises, and to distinguish between the 
meretricious and the true. 

Miss Lyman was nowhere more at home than in the sick rootji, 
and beside the couch of suffering. Delicate in health herself, she 
was nevertheless always ready when the sick and the sorrowful needed 
her help. 

When dangerous infection had driven others away, there she 
might have been found with her calm and gentle r^-^^-'- ^r,r,y.]o- 

of contagion. Her spirit was of a heroic sore, Tsr.,-, 

that which animated her lamented brother at Sumatra, and ttranr^vi 
a Florence Nightingale in the fever hospitals of Scutari. " I was sick 
and ye visited me. 

I have said that Miss Lyman's character was well balanced, but 
it is fitting that I should add that her almsgiving in proportion to 
her 7neans and resources were munificent, at the same time osten- 
tation in giving was carefully avoided. 

The amount of assistance, however, which she gave to ministers 
and missionaries, and their families, and to the indigent of Christ's 
flock would, if fully known, astonish her most intimate friends. 

Who can estimate the value to the world of such a life ? By 
what powers of arithmetic can its blessed results be computed ? 
" And Iheard a voice from Heaven say, Blessed are the dead who 
die in the Lord; yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their 
labors, and their worhs do follow them," 



406 Lyman Genealogy. 

Her struggle with death was long and painful. For three weeks 
she might truly be said to be dying ; and " dying," said she, " is very 
hard work." She had no fears, no shrinking; she longed to depart. 
Her desire and prayer was that the end might come ; and, as we looked 
upon her sufferings, we could not but join in her prayer. On Tues- 
day Feb. 21, 1871, the prayer was heard and answered. The gate 
at which she had so long been knocking opened, and she entered 
into rest. 

" Wonderful was the change which passed upon the face as we 
stood, and watched the expression of weariness and pain passing 
away, and the features settling to a perfect repose." 

" Weep not for her ! She is an angel now, 
And treads the sapphire floors of paradise. 
All darkness wiped from her refulgent brow. 
Sin, sorrow, suffering banished from hex eyes, 
Victorious over death, to her appear 
The vista'd joys of Heaven's eternal year. 

Weep not for her." — Moir.

JAMIN.1 

4 Benjamin Lyman"*, JBe?yami7f, Johri^, Richard}, 1703- 
1762, b. in Northampton, Jan. 2, 1703 ; m. Mary Mosely of 
Glastenbury, Ct., probably in the early part of the year 
1726. She was b. in Westiield, Mass., in 1707. He lived 
in Northampton nearly twenty years. In 1745 or soon 
after, he removed with his family to Bartlett Mills on the 
Manhan river, a district then in Northampton, but after- 
wards with other settlements set off and denominated East- 
hampton. On the 28th of May, 1745, the town deeded to 
Benjamin Lyman and Stephen Wright, who was his 
neighbor and had removed with him from Northampton, 
for and in consideration of the sum of sixteen hundred 
and twenty-five pounds in bills of public credit, old tenor, 
" a tract of land known as ' School Meadow,' the same 
being land sequestered by the town ' for the schools,' " about 
eight acres of the Manhan meadow above the falls on the 
river and the public road across the same. At that time 
no place of worship had been erected in Easthampton. 
He therefore retained his connection with the church in 
Northampton where he was one of the early and constant 
supporters of Rev. Jonathan Edwards, D.D., being one of 
the nineteen who voted to retain him as pastor of the church 
at the time of the opposition to him. He died May 1, 
1762, aged 59. Mrs. L. died Aug. 17, 1782, in her 75th 
year. 

Children, Fifth Generation : 

1 I Benjamin, b. Aug. 1, 1727 ; known as Deacon Benjamin. 

2 2 Mary, b. Feb. 22, 1730; m. Oliver Pomeroy, of Northampton. 

3 3 Thankful, b. March 30, 1731 ; m. Daniel Williams. 

4 4 Lemuel, b. 1732 ; d. Feb. 14, 1732. 

5 5 Lemuel, b. Aug. 17, 1735. 

6 6 David, b. Dec. 14, 1737. 

7 7 Solomon, b. Jan. 21, 1741 ; d. Jan. 27, 1746. 

8 8 Esther, b. June, 1748 ; d. 1749. 

9 9 Martha, b. 1750 ; m. Oliver Wright, Nov. 8, 1770. 

The tovyn record of Northampton gives the birth of Aaron, son of 
Benjamin and Mary Lyman, Aug. 1, 1727. It has been said that 
Benjamin was b. in that year. No Aaron grew up in the family, 
and no such person is mentioned in the record of the deaths, though 



Descendants of Benjamin. 409 

the death of Lemuel and Solomon is recorded. It is hence inferred 
that Benjamin was at first called Aaron, and the name changed.

Jones,- of Springfield, Mass. Easthampton, Mass. 

Children, Sixth Generation :

Springfield. 

15 6 Hannah, m. Eli Clapp of Southampton. 

16 7 Mercy, b. Oct. 11, 1772 ; m. Josiah Snow of S. Hadley. 

In the town records of Northampton there is recorded the birth 
of Hannah, a dau. of Benjamin Lyman, jr., and Hannah, b. Aug. 
27, 1756. It could probably refer to no other than Dea. Benjamin, 
and it is probable that he had a child of that name who d. in infancy. 

Dea. Benjamin Lyman built a house on the plain, where his 
grandson, Rev. Solomon Lyman, now deceased, lived. He was very 
active and influential in the formation of the church and district or 
town. To him was directed the warrant, to call together the 
citizens to the first meeting of the district after its organization. 
Robert Breck, Esq., who was empowered by act of the general court to 
issue his warrant to some prominent citizen, was chosen moderator 
of the first meeting. Mr. Lyman was chosen moderator of the 
second meeting, and he occupied that position many times thereafter. 
In church matters, he was also a leader. Before the settlement of 
a pastor, it was needful that there be a moderator, who could legally 
call meetings of the church, an ofiice to which he was appointed. 
At one of the earliest business meetings of the church, he was chosen 
deacon, which office he accepted, and performed its duties till his 
death in June, 1798. He was a man of ardent piety, a faithful 
servant of Christ. His wife was Hannah Jones of Springfield. 
They had children, the dates of whose baptisms are given in the 
church records of Southampton, Rev. Jonathan Judd, pastor, which 
church they joined July 29, 1759, and attended until the organiza- 
tion of one in Easthampton.

5 Lemuel Ltman^, son of Benjamin^, who first settled in 
Eastliampton, b. Aug. 17, 1735 ; moved with his father to 
Easthampton, at the age of ten. In 1755, ?t the age of 
twenty, in company with his neighbor, Lieut. Eliakim 
Wright, he joined the expedition then forming under com- 
mand of Sir William Johnson against Crown point. A 
battle occurred at the south end of Lake George, Sept. 8, 
1755, in which a portion of the troops were engaged, these 
being in command of Col. Ephraim Williams, the founder 
of Williams College, who was slain. Mr. Lyman was in 
this battle, and received a wound while in the act of firing 
at an Indian. The bullet passed across three of his fingers 
and struck his breast, passing through a leather vest, 
pierced his shirt three times on account of a fold in it, 
passed through his bullet pouch and half buried itself in his 
body. This pouch is still preserved in one of the numerous 
families of his descendants. Soon after this, he, with 
others, was sent with a drove of cattle for the northern 
army. It was supposed, that, in this expedition, by the 
privations and exposures which he endured, he laid the 
foundation for the rheumatism, a disease, which in later 
years rendered him, to some extent, unable to perform 
manual labor. He was a member of the board of select- 
men for seven years, and one of the leaders in the esta- 
blishment of a church, and the erection of a house of worship. 
He was a man of great physical strength, and was quick to 
perceive the best method of action in a moment of danger. 
He had a very retentive memory, great presence of mind, 
and native energy of character. He m. Ljdia Clark, dau. 
of Eliakim Clark, of Easthampton, who was b. Sept., 1741. 
He d. July 16, 1810, aged 74. Easthampton, Mass.

EasthamptoD, Nov. 21, 1827. He built a house at the foot 
of '' Meeting House Hill," Easthampton. Eor many years 
he owned the saw-mill on the Manhan near his residence, 
and carried on his lumber business, as extensive probably, 
as that of any man in the county. He also owned a share 
of the grist-mill opposite his saw-mill, standing where one 
has now stood little short of two hundred years. The first 
mill was erected by Samuel Bartlett, to whom in 1676-7 
ISTorthampton gave liberty "to set up a corn-mill upon 
Manhan river below the cartway on the falls of the river." 
Mr. L. P. Lyman d. Aug. 7, 1865. His death was hastened, 
by if not entirely, the result of an injury received on his head 
by the falling of a stick of timber at the raising of a house.

It was said of Daniel F. Lyman by one who knew him well and 
knew whereof he spoke: — Modest and retiring in his manners ; he 
never sought to make himself prominent by seeking office, but was 
content to serve his generation by striving to do his duty as a citizen 
and a Christian in the sphere in which he was placed. Springing 
from a Puritan ancestry, he possessed in a large measure, the virtues

which mark the genuine Puritan character, and it may truly be said 
of him that no man in town was more thoroughly respected, nor one 
whose integrity was more unquestioned. He had been for many 
years a member of the first church, and was regarded as one of its 
pillars. The Bible says, " A good name is rather to be chosen than 
great riches," and Mr. Lyman has certainly left that as an inherit- 
ance for his children. 

Daniel W. Lyman, son of Daniel F. Lyman, was a member of Co. 
K, 52d regiment, in which he was one of the first to enlist. Not 
from any fondness for the adventures and perils of war, nor from 
any momentary impulse, but from a deliberate conviction that to him 
the voice of country was the voice of God, was he led to oifer him- 
self, a sacrifice if need be, for his country's salvation. Upon a 
Christian young man not absolutely forbidden by some higher call 
of duty, he felt that the claims of country then were paramount. 
Influenced by such considerations, it is not too much to say, that in 
the darkest hour, his purpose never wavered, nor did a regret for his 
course find place in his heart. To his faithful performance of the 
duties of a Christian soldier, many have borne ample testimony. His 
cordial, unwavering trust in God, in times of darkness and danger, 
though probably doubted by none, is best known to those who knew 
him intimately. To many whom he never saw, he was known by 
his letters from the regiment, which were published in the Hamp- 
shire Gazette. 

Sabbath morning, June 14, 1863, an attack on Fort Hudson was 
ordered, and, though deprecating the selection of that day for the 
assault, he went forward without faltering. His regiment being en- 
gaged as skirmishers, he, with a few of his comrades, gained a posi- 
tion in a ravine somewhat in advance of the main line, and while 
here, very early in the engagement, a ball from a rebel sharpshooter 
struck him in his head, killing him instantly. Capt. Bissell wrote 
to me thus in relation to him : " Gentle hands placed him in his 
grave, and covered the earth over him near the spot where he fell, 
although obliged to wait till after dark, and to be exposed to a storm 
of rebel bullets. This tender tribute of aifection is his monument, 
and, although his dust may not make the violets of his native hills, 
it will not be amiss, on the morning of the resurrection, that his 
body should arise from the spot, where the latest duties of his life 
were so faithfully concluded." 

In the town of Easthampton, nine of the name of Lyman enlisted in 
the service of their country to subdue the rebellion, four of whom 
died of disease or fell in battle in the rebel states.

graduated from "Williams College, in 1836, took charge 
of an English and classical school, in Canaan, IST. Y., for 
two years, taught afterwards for a short time at Ithaca, 
]!:T. Y., and then at Easthampton, Mass. He studied 
theology at Auburn, and was licensed to preach in the fall 
of 1843. Following this, he taught school in Bristol, Ct. 
Here the blessing of God upon his efforts for the spiritual 
benefit of his pupils, was such as to lead him to decide 
to make teaching the business of his life. This profession 
he followed as principal of an Academy, at Williston, Yt. 
and Lenox, Mass., till he was compelled in consequence of 
ill health, to relinquish sedentary pursuits. For many 
years his business has been that of telescope manufacturer 
and civil engineer. A reflecting telescope of his manufac- 
ture, is admitted to be the best, as it is the largest of its 
kind ever made in this country. He has also invented and 
manufactured an instrument called the protracting tri- 
gonometer, a very superior drafting instrument. May 22,

ordained an evangelist and went to Oregon under the 
auspices of the American Home Missionary Society about 
the time of the California gold excitement. The journey 
thither at that time, as may be supposed, was far more of 
an undertaking then, than now. Mr. and Mrs. Lyman 
went by way of Cape Horn, and were nearly or quite half 
a year in making the passage from New York to San 
Francisco. They remained some months in California, at 
San Jose and then went to Portland, Oregon, where he was 
largely instrumental in the establishment of a Congrega- 
tional church there as also at Dallas, where he resided 
some years after leaving Portland. He is now professor 
of mathematics in Pacific University, at Forest Grove, 
Oregon, a university whose primary object is to raise up 
men \o supply the need of ministerial labor on the Pacific 
Coast. During a year's respite from the labors of his pro- 
fessorship he was in the government employ in the Custom 
house at Astoria, the entrepot of the upper Pacific Coast. 
He is now discharging the duties of the professorship.

In speaking of him, the Independent said : " In every church 
where he has labored, God has blessed his instrumentality with pre- 
cious revivals, and as the fruits of these revivals, about 300 have 
been gathered into the churches under his care. He was noted for 
his ardent piety, implicit faith, and a heart full of Christian sympa- 
thy and knowledge. He was a man full of faith and the Holy 
Spirit. During his whole ministry he lost not a Sabbath or a day 
from sickness." He left three sons, all of whom have graduated or 
are to graduate at Hamilton College, and the oldest of whom, Rev. 
Leigh Richmond Janes, has been a very successful pastor atShorts- 
ville, N. Y., for several years.

about the interests of the soul, and to receive Christian 
counsel. His neighbors and friends told him they could

deputed to take them back to Boston, which he finally 
succeeded in doing, although many times in the homeward 
march his life from them was in great peril. But when,

This record is given as copied from their family Bible illustrative 
of the character of the man and the spirit of the times. 

1st. Isa record of his marriage. He says: 1735, 1 appeared before a 
small assembly at the house of Joseph Lyman, and there promised 
to love, honor and cherish and live with my dear wife as the law of 
Grod and man directs in a marriage covenant, and I pray the God of 
love and peace to enable me to keep that covenant, and be found 
blameless. Then follows an account of births and deaths in their 
family, copied from the original manuscript, i Elijah, 1st son, b. 
Nov. 30, 1735 ; d. Jan. 19th, 1736, aged 7 weeks. 2 Elihu, b. 
March 31st, 1737. 3 Justus, b. Jan. 13, 1739, and then he says :

sight, and also give His servant and handmaid hearts to bring 
them up for Him. 4 Eunice. 5 Jonathan, with no dates of birth. 
6 Susanna, b. Oct. 20, 1766. 7 and 8 Elijah and Josiah without

we desire to give icholly to God the giver, and pray for direction to 
bring them up for Him, or return them to Him in death, according 
to his will. 

March 22, 1760, my eldest son, Elihu, departed this life, being 
near 23 years of age. There is quite an extensive account of this 
young man, and so of the others. 

Jonathan died 'Sept. 7th, 1766, in the 23d year of his age ; he 
had made great proficiency in learning, was a student in Yale Col- 
lege, had entered upon his fourth and last year.
