Preface. 



There comes into the hfe of nearly every man a tmie 
when he begins to reahze that there is a future which hes 
before him and for the success of which he is in part responsi- 
ble. In considering the future he must relate it to the present 
and to the past, for on the foundations of the past much of 
the strength of the future depends. In the same manner a 
person becomes interested in the past history of his family 
and at such a time he begins to collect from the older members 
of his family such facts as may connect the past with the 
present and give him information concerning the character 
and life of those ancestors to whose parental care he owes 
his existence. At this time too, the thought of having a 
genealogy of hi> family appeals to him and if he cannot buy 
one. the only course open to him is to coiupile one. In the 
compilation of such a book many a man is content with a 
history of his own family and his ancestors in a direct line 
back as far as it is possible to obtain information concerning 
.them. The compiler of the present work was less selfish in 
hi< motives and went farther in the endeavor to relate all 
people in America who bore the name "Xye". 

The original purpose of this compiler, then, was to in- 
clude all the decendants of Benjamin Xye who was the first 
of the name to settle in America. But it was impossible to 
accomplish this ^ince many people were not interested m a 
genealogy and either ignored the repeated requests sent to 
them asking for ilata regarding their family or absolutely 
refused to give the information sought. This, of course, made 
it impossible to get the names of a large number who might 
have been interested, and willing and anxious to assist. }^Iore 
than this many of the older members of the family whose 
names were not known to the compilers, but wdiose memory 



12 THE XYll FAMILY. 

served as a connecting link between the past and the present 
have died and with these deaths much valuable information 
has been lost. 

In offering this book to the public then, it is not intended 
that it shall be taken as a complete genealogy of the Xve 
I'amily but as a collection of valuable information carrying 
the Nye Family back in a connected line for about seven hun- 
dred years and enabling all who have any information of their 
own whether published in the book or not to connect their 
line back to that time. 

The compilation of this work was first commenced by 
Air. George H. Xye of Auburn, X. Y. He sent out many 
letters of inquiry and the response to these was so great and 
so rapid that the task of arranging the material thus obtained 
was more than he could do with his other business duties. 
He therefore employed ]Mr. Frank E. Best, a professional 
genealogist, of Chicago to take what material he already had, 
to obtain more and arrange the whole into such s'hape that 
it could be published. The European history was obtained 
and th.e line was completed from the time that the name 
originated to the present. 

All this necessarily involved a large expenditure of money 
and many years of work and ]\lr. X'ye was about to let the 
book stand as it was, when in 1903 the X^ve Family of Amer- 
ica held its First Reunion at Sandwich. Mass. The interest 
and enthusiasm of that reunion was such that he was 
prompted to eivc the manuscript to the association there 
formed, which he did at the second reunion with the request 
that it be published. A committee on publication was ap- 
pointed but they accomplished very little. However, in the 
summer of 1906 that committee composed of Henry Alden 
Belcher of Randolph, Mass., George H. Nye of Auburn, X'. Y. 
and David J. Xye of Elyria, Ohio, and seven others, William 
F. Xye of Xew Bedford, ]Mass., Allen T. Xye of Boston, 
Mass., James L. Wesson of Boston, Mass., Elmer T. Xye of 
East Georgia, \'t., Charles W'. Parker of Boston, Mass.. Mrs. 
Flarriet X've Towne of Chillicothc, Ohio, and Fremont X've

of Westerly, R. I., volunteered to be responsilile for anv 
expense connected with the publication of the work. This 
assured the publication of the book and much credit is due to 
these ten Members of the Association who have made it pos- 
sible to place in more permanent form, records which other- 
wise might always have remained in manuscript and have 
been inaccessible to the majority of American Xyes. 

The editor wishes to acknowledge the kindness of Mrs. 
S. Curtis Smith of Xewton. ?^Iass., Secretary of the X\-e 
Family of America Association in giving the use of her verv 
valuable mailing list, in making many suggestions which have 
been of great assistance in completing the book and for her 
aid in obtaining pictures to be used as illustrations. Mr. 
George M. Emmons of Russell, Mass.. is deserving of many 
thanks for the chart of the ■"Blandford Xyes" which he so 
kindly furnished and which has been inserted in the book. 
The editor is also under great obligations to the many persons 
who have so recently sent information, corrections and addi- 
tions which when placed in the manuscript have increased in 
great decree its accuracy. Lloth the Xye Family of America 
Association and the editor are very grateful to all who sub- 
scribed for copies of the book in advance, since the liberal 
number of these subscriptions have enabled us to make the 
bock more attractive than was at first contemplated.

Foreword. 



Any Genealogy is necessarily imperfect, births, marriages 
and deaths are constantly occurring, while change of residence 
breaks many a link in the ancestral chain, and causes in con- 
sequence many a disappointment. The reader should then 
discard in advance any idea that the present work differs in 
that respect from any other of its kir.d. What may then be 
expected in this book is that those seeking information con- 
cerning their ancestry may hope to <>btain for a moderate 
outlay what could otherwise be secured only at great cost. 
This information has been gathered through researc'hes of 
many years, and at a large expenditure of time and money. 

The Danish and English matter is taken from the records, 
references being given in every instance, while the American 
data were tabulated and completed by Mr. Frank E. Best. 
That errors should occur in such a number of transcripts is 
also to be expected, verifications of the P.il^le and other records 
from which the information was obtained being impossible. 
With the above explanation no further apologies are needed. 
The reader is now placed in possessiijn of records which it 
is hoped will enable him to complete his own line of descent, 
and be an incentive to its accurate keeping in the future.

NYE OF DENMARK 



The Nyes In Europe. 

Denmark and England 



The Nyes in Europe. 

DENMARK 

The name Nye as a family name made its first appearance 
about the middle of the thirteenth century in the Sjelland Sec- 
tion of Denmark. At that time there were great internal 
uprisings in Sweden and many of the Swedes fled to ad- 
joining countries to escape the dangers which threatened them 
at home. These people settled in little communities through- 
out Denmark and we find traces of their settlements in such 
compound names as Ny-borg, Ny-stead, and of other towns 
named after their Swedish homes ; in like manner to the nam- 
ing of New Amsterdam by th^ Dutch settlers in America; the 
prefix Ny in the Danish language, meaning new or new comer. 

In the adoption of surnames which hitherto had been 
practically unknown they employed much the same method. 
Great confusion often resulted from the lack of a surname 
and so to distinguish a man he was given a surname which 
suggested itself from some characteristic of the man, as for 
instance a trade or occupation, such as Baker, Carpenter, or 
Gardener, often his figure made the necessary suggestion, as 
Broad, Short, or Tallman ; or the simple addition of son, as 
Johnson, Williamson or Robinson. 

And so one of these emigrants from Sweden was given 
by the inhabitants of his new country the name Nye or New- 
comer. 

For the ancestry of this man we must look to the tradi- 
tional history of Denmark. There are several stories of his 
origin but one will be sufficient to give us a point from which 
we may start. This tradition tells us that about the middle 
of the thirteenth century a person came and settled in Fred- 
ericksborg Bailiwick and Slangerup Parish in the Sjelland 
Section of Denmark. There was a rumor that he was the 



20 THE XVE FAMILY. 

descendant of Harold Blaiuand. who died in 985. through his 
daughter, who married one of the most famous of the Swedish 
heroes, Styribiorn, son of Olaf, King of Sweden. 

LA\'E XYE was a son of this descendant of the royal 
house of Sweden and is the first whose name appears on rec- 
ord. He became a man of great prominence and in 13 16 was 
Bishop of Roskilde in the Sjelland Section. (Lexicon over 
Adclige Fainilier in Danmark, Novge og Hcrtogdoiiiniene) . 

S\'EX XYE is mentioned in 1346 as the heir of his 
father, the Bishop of Roskilde. {Danskc Arkivc). In 1363 
he had in Tudse, Holbeek Bailiwick, Sjelland Section a grant 
of land. (Lands KorJorets Annaler) He probably died the 
same year, since his son, 

MARTEX XYE was in that year declared heir of his 
father in Tudse. [Historia SjcUandia Vol. i, p. (>8). 

XILS XYE was a son of iNIarten Xye and in 1418 is 
mentioned in the Landnamabok as possessing land in Tudse. 
which he then deeded to his son. 

BERTOLF XYE is mentioned in 1466 as the son of Xils 
Nye of Tudse [Xccrologinm Daniae fetus). Bertolf had two 
sons James and Randolf. James had a duel with Tostig, son 
of Gytha, (Annalcs Daninc III. 135), from the consequences 
of which he fled to England accompanied by his younger 
brother Randolf and settled in Wiltshire, afterward removing 
to Hampshire. 

EXGLAXD. 

RAXDOLF XYE settled in Sussex in 1527. He is men- 
tioned in the Rolls as excusing himself on account of illness 
from attendance at the Assize held at Lewes. (Coram Rcgc 
Roll, 20 Hen. VIII). He held land in L'ckfield, County Sus- 
sex {Rotnli Hundredornni ?j Hen. LI II). He had one son, 
William who is mentioned in Coram Rege Roll as the inheritor 
of his father, Rand'ilf of Uckfield. 



THE NYES IN EUROPE 21 

WILLIAM XYE. son of Randolf, married Agnes, daugh- 
ter of Ralph Tregian of Ballance-Horned. County Hertford. 
William studied for the ministry and became Rector of the 
Parish Church of Ballance-Horned before his father's death. 
[26 Hen. I'lII. I ^^4 also History of Hertfordshire \'ol. I. p. 
274). In 2 Edw. \'I, 1548-9 we read that he claimed the land 
which hi< father who had evidently died the year before had 
■■given unto 'him" in Cckfield "to have and to hold to them 
and to the heirs male of the said William his son, and in de- 
fault of such issue male then the said premises to be given 
to the Parish Church". ( Tozcn Depositions Chancery 2 Edz^'. 
VI). As there are no other references to William Xye, ex- 
cept a mention of his name in 1556, when his son Ralph wab 
served heir to his father, it nuist be inferred that he' led a 
quiet and uneventful life. 

RALPH XYE, son of William, became heir to his father 
in Ccktield and Balance in I55^>. This date also fixes the 
date for the death of his father. (Retour. iij). He married 
June iS, 1555, ]\[argaret M^rynge of St. ]\Iary, Woolchurch. 
{Marria\;e Licenses of the Bislwp of London. B.) He had five 
children who are mentioned in Inqiiisitiones Post Mortem: 

i Thomas. 

ii Edmundus. who while he was quite young went 

into Somersetshire, died there and was -buried in 

Wedmore Church March 9, 1594. (St. James 

Parish Rei!;ister & Wedmore Parish Register). 

iii Ralph, married Joan \\'ilkshire, August 30, 1584. 

{Wedmore Parish Register). 
iv Anne, married Xich. Stuart August 6, 1616. 
V Mary, married John Banister \pv\\ 24. 1621. {St. 
Savionrs. Southzvark Parish Register). 

THOMAS XYE. son of Ralph and Margaret (Merynge) 
Xye, married September 9, 1583, at St. Andrew, Hubbard, 
Katherine Poulsden of London. She was a daughter of the late 
Mr. Poulsden of Horley, County Surrey. {Marriage Licenses 
Bishop of London Court). He bargained and sold to William 
P'oulsden of the same Parish, voeman, his wife's brother, a

messuage or tenement builded with a croft adjoining, con- 
taining sixteen acres in Bidlenden, County Kent. {Clerk of 
the Peace Rolls) . William Poulsden then granted to Thomas 
Nye an annuity of four shillings arising from the said lands. 
Ralph Nye was executor of his father's estate in 1584. (Pro- 
ceedings Court of Claims). Their Children were: 

i Henry, matriculated at Oxford University, Novem- 
ber 24, 1609, at the age of twenty years. He 
received his degree, Bachellor of Arts, June 12, 
161 1. In 1615 he was Vicar of Cobham, Surrey. 
He was Rector of Clapham Sussex in 1630. 
i Alumni Oxonicnsis "cf sequitur"). His son, 
John, matriculated at Oxford, December 12, 
1634, aged fourteen years and was made Bachel- 
lor of Arts, .May 26, 1638. 

ii Philip, matriculated at Oxford, June 28, 1616, when 
he was twenty years of age. He received the 
degree, Bachellor of Arts, April 24, 1619. In 
1645 he was Rector of St. iMichal's Cornhill and 
of Acton Middlesex in 1645. He resided for 
. some time at Hayes near Slinford, County Sus- 
sex and later emigrated to Arnheim, Holland 
and returned to England in 1840 in company 
with John Canne. In Oliver Cromwell's time 
he was a celebrated preacher and there are many 
interesting notes about him in Henry G. Bohn's 
edition of Butler's Hudibras. He married Judith, 
who died in 1680. He died at Brompton, Ken- 
sington Parish, September, 1678, and was buried 
at St. Michael's Cornhill, September 27, 1678. 
(Lanc-Eng'l Ch. Hist. J^ol. II, p. 140: Fcnland 
Notes & Que. Vol. II p. 80, for reference to 
Philip Nye, "the goodly divine." See also ad- 
dress of George H. Nye at First Nye Reunion, 
Sandwich, Mass., 1903.) 

iii John, reported to have been "a very lively dis- 
position" which the following taken from the 
Middlesex- Sessions Roll Peace Reg. would tend 
to confirm: "July 16, 12 James I (1614) John 
Nye brought in by warrant for abusinge Sir 
William Smith at Hammersmith and beatinge 
Richard Bushe verye square upon the head ; said 



THE NYES IN EUROPE 23 

John Xye to put in surities for his good be- 
havior and appear at next session of the Peace." 
He married and had children who resided in 
JMiddlesex. 
iv Thomas, our ancestor. 

THOMAS XYE, son of Thomas and Katherine (Pouls- 
den) X'ye of Bidlenden, County Kent, was a haberdasher. On 
June 10, 1619, he married for his second wife Agnes Ryef. 
Tlie name of his first wife who had died is not l<nown. His 
second wife, whose age is given as thirty-nine, was of the 
same Parish and was the widow of Henry Rye. fMarriac^t- 
Liccnscs, Archbishop of Canterbury Court). July 4, 1637, he 
granted to his youngest son Thomas four acres of land in Bid- 
lenden together with a building part of a fold-course and stated 
in the document "my oldest son Benjamin having gone to 
Xew England." (Clerk of the Peace Rolls). 
Their children were : 

i l^.enjamin, born ]\Iay 4. 1620; married Katharine 

Tapper and settled in Sandwich, Mass. 
ii Thomas, born Sept. 16, 1623; married Margaret 
\\'ebster and left descendants in Bidlenden. (St. 
Peter, Cornhill, Parish Register).

Benjamin Nye 



Benjamin Nye. 



I— BENJAMIN NYE, son of Thomas and Agnes Nye, 
was born at Bidlenden Kent, England, ]\lay 4. 1620. 

He came in the "Abigail" to Lynn, Mass.. in 1635, with 
Edmund Freeman's Company. 

(Dennis Geere of Saugus, who came in the "Abigail," 
in his will, dated December 10, 1635, leaves 30 shillings to 
Benjamin Nye.) 

Rev. Thomas Tupper was also a passenger on the "Abi- 
gail." In 1637 he removed to Sandwich, Mass., where Oc- 
tober 19. 1640, his daughter Katherine and Benjamin Nye 
were married. 

The following extracts from the town and colony rec- 
ords give the history of Benjamin Nye. 

In 1643 the name of Benjamin Nye appears in the list 
of those able to bear arms. 

In 1650 he complained of Thomas Dexter, Jr.. for tres- 
pass for damages to the amount of ten pounds and was 
awarded by the jury the sum of fifteen shillings. 

In 1654, his name appears on a list of those contributing 
toward building a mill. 

March 29, 1655, his name is on the subscription list for 
building a meeting house. 

In 1655 he was supervisor of highways. 

July 17, 1657, he engages to pay fifteen shillings toward 
the minister's salary yearly, and in the same year takes the 
oath of fidelity. 

May 18, 1658, he was chosen Grand-juryman. 

In 1659 he made a payment of five shillings for the 
meeting house. 

In 1660 he complained against William Newland in an 
action of defamation, to the damage of fifty pounds, by tes- 



28 THE XYE FAMILY. 

tifyinc: in court that a message was brought or sent to him 
from Elizabeth Freeman "afFeirming that Jacob Burgis was 
drawnc to testify that which he did conserning Barlow 
through Feare, by Benjamin Xyes threatening him, in case 
hee would atcnd Barlow in his ocations against the Quak- 
ers, and giue the p^ent euidence, hee should not haue 
his daughter to wife." The jury found for the plaintiff fifty 
shillings, or that the defendant bring forth the informer, and 
the cost of the suit. 

In 1661 he was chosen Constable and 1662 he was on 
the jurv. In 1664 he served on a coroner's jury on Thomas 
Fitch. In 1665 he wa> on a committee to settle a road dis- 
pute between George Allen and R. Chadwell. 

Mav 15, 1668. he was again chosen Grand-juryman. 
On March 18. 1660, the town voted to lay out twelve 
acres of land to him because he built the mill at the little 
pond. 

September 13, 1669, the town "granted Ben Nie 8 acres 
of land adjoining his si.x acres adj(jining to his meadow by 
the little river." 

[une 13, 1671. he was on a committee to look after the 
uplands and meadows which are the town's commons. 
In 1^)73, he was constable. 

^larch 31, 1674. voted a commitee take a deed of 
Thomas Dexter for the town's land and ordered Benjamin 
Nye, the collector, to pay the said Thomas Dexter four 
pounds for it. 

On Februarv 23. i^Vr- ^ 'i^^ of names was recorded of 
those having a just right and interest in the town's privil- 
erres — the list contains the names of Benjamin Xie and John 
Nye. 

August 8, 1675, it was \oted that Benj. Xyc have per- 
mission to build a fulling mill upon Spring Hill River, pro- 
viding it does not damnific the county road, and to keep up 
a mill in said place as long as he keeps a fulling mill in the 
same place. (The history of Barnstable County states "at 
Spring Hill, just west from East Sandwich the remains of

at Shirley, Piscataquis County. Maine, August 25, 1850. 
Under his jioiii dc plume of ■'Bill Nye" he is known the 
world over. According to his own story, when he was 
about two years of age, he took his parents by the hand 
and led them to the West. They went to Wisconsin in 
1853 ^"<^ settled on a farm in St. Croix County, near River 
Falls, where Edgar, as the family called him, grew to man-

hood. He was educated in the common schools and at the 
Academy at River Falls, worked on the farm, taught school 
a few years and studied law. 

In the spring of 1876 he went into Wyoming Territory, 
having no financial resources whatever, and located in Lari- 
mee City, where he took a position on the Larimee City 
Daily Sentinel, a paper then published by Mr. Hayford. 
He soon acquired pronounced local fame which rapidly 
spread throughout the West. He was a regular contributor 
for some time to the Denver Sunday Tribune, and in the 
meantime practiced law somewhat, and held the position of 
Municipal Judge. He was also for a time Postmaster at 
Larimee City. He later organized a newspaper Company 
known as the Boomerang Company, and started the Lari- 
mee City Daily fioomerang, which for some time, until his 
health failed was widely copied throughout the United 
States. In the later part of 1879 or 1880 he met with a 
sickness which finally led to his severing his connection 
with the Boomerang. He suffered for a long time after, 
the effects of Cerebro-Spinal Meningitis, and found- it neces- 
sary to have a change of climate and occupation. He never 
recovered from the severe strain of this continued nervous 
difficulty, arising, no doubt, largely from overwork and 
nervous and mental strain. About 1881 or 1882 he re- 
turned to Wisconsin and bought a small home at Hudson, 
St. Croix County, and resided there with his family, engag- 
ing his services to the New York World for a time as a 
weekly contributor, and shortly after engaging upon a sal- 
ary, he removed his family to New York City and bought a 
fine home at Staten Island. He spent two or three winters 
in the South, and finally bought a place at what is called 
Buck Shoals, near Asheville, North Carolina. He built a 
fine residence there in which the family lived at the time 
of his death. 

In addition to a large amount of literary work and his 
labors on the "World" he lectured in all parts of the United 
States, and was throughout the Fall and Winter of the last

four or five years of his life constantly on the lecture plat- 
form. He married at Larimee City, March 7, 1877, Mjss 
Clara Frances Smith. She died in the fall of 1906. He 
died on February 22, 1896, at his home at Buck Shoals, 
North Carolina, after a short illness finally culminating in a 
paralytic stroke. He was buried in the Episcopal church- 
yard at Fletcher, N. C, five miles from Buck Shoals.

Appendix. 

The Nye Family of America Association. 



For the benefit of those who have not become acquainted 
with the Nye Family of America Association, or who have 
been unable to attend its meetings or to obtain copies of the 
proceedings, a short account of the organization, purpose and 
history of the Association is here given. 

In August, 1902, there gathered in Sandwich, Mass., a 
little group of Nyes whose earnest wish was to have a reunion 
of the family. Among them was one of four score years, 
Charles H. Nye of Hyannis, who had long labored for this 
purpose and whose most earnest desire was that the descend- 
ants of Benjamin Nye, scattered as they are from the Golden 
Gate on the West to the Pine Tree State on the East, might 
gather together in the ancestral home town on Cape Cod. 

In accordance with this wish Mrs. Henry Alden Belcher 
invited a number of the descendants of Benjamin Nye to 
meet at her residence in Sandwich to consult upon the feasi- 
bility of holding a reunion of the family the next year and to 
form a temporary organization for that purpose. In response 
to this invitation nine of the CapeXod Nyes met with Mrs. 
Belcher. At that time a temporary organization of the Nye 
Family was formed for the purpose of organizing a national 
association, the object of which should be to collect family 
history, promote family pride and cultivate a closer bond of 
friendship among the kindred. 

The following officers were elected to take charge of the 
temporary organization : Mr. William L. Nye, Sandwich, 
Mass., President; Mrs. Henry Alden Belcher, Randolph, 
Mass., Secretary and Treasurer. 



THE XYE FAMILY 



Executive Committee. 



Mr. Charles H. Nye, Hyannis, Mass. 
Mr. William F. Nye, Fairhaven, Mass. 
Mr. Everett I. Nye, Wellfleet, Mass. 
Mr. Levi S. Nye, Sandwich, Mass. 
Hon. William A. Nye, Bournedale, Mass. 
Mr. David D. Nye, Cataumet, Mass. 
Mr. James L. Wesson, Boston, Mass. 
■ Mr. William P. Nye, Providence, R. I. 
Mr. George H. Nye, Auburn, N. Y. 
Mrs. William L. Nye, Sandwich, Mass. 
Miss Mary E. Nye, Sandwich, Mass. 
Mrs. S. Curtis Smith, Newton, Mass. 

This temporary organization voted to have a reunion to 
which a general invitation might be extended to the Nyes 
scattered throughout the countr>- in the hopes that such a re- 
union v^fould be largely attended and the temporary organiza- 
Lion be made a permanent association. 

In November, 1902, circulars were sent out to the Nyes 
all over America informing them of the action taken by this 
little group of Nyes down on Cape Cod and asking them for 
their co-operation in making the first reunion of the Nye 
Family a grand success. After this other meetings were held 
and in June a second circular was sent out inviting all des- 
cendants of Benjamin Nye to gather at Sandwich, Mass., 
August 5, 6 and 7, 1903, to celebrate the first reunion of the 
family In response to this invitation about three hundred of 
the Nyes gathered at Sandwich, Mass., on August 5, 1903, 
and inaugurated the first reunion of the Nye Family of 
America. The program consisted of historical addresses and 
papers bearing upon family matters by prominent members of 
the family. There were short addresses and delightful music. 
There were two receptions and a concert at the Casino. Visits 
were made to many historical spots in and about the town. 

At this reunion a committee was appointed to whom was 
referred the matter of a permanent organization of an Asso- 
ciation of the Nye Family. The following recommendations 
made by this committee were adopted :

be known as 'The Xye Family of America.' 

"Second. That any descendant of Benjamin Nye, who 
settled in Sandwich in 1637, and his or her husband, wife, 
widow or widower, may become a member of said association 
on the payment of a fee of one dollar, and remain a member 
of said association on the payment of the annual dues of one 
dollar per year. 

"Third. That the officers of said association shall be a 
President, a Vice-president, a Secretary, an Assistant Secre- 
tary, a Treasurer and an Executive Committee consisting of 
ten members and at least one additional member from each 
state and territory having a membership in said association. 
(At the reunion in 1906 a Registrar was added to this list of

dent ; George H. Xye of Auburn, N. Y., Vice-president; Mrs.

Annie Xye Smith 01 Boston, Mass., Treasurer. 

"That the Assistant Secretary shall be such person as

"That the officers of said association shall hold their 
offices until the close of the next reunion, and all officers here-^ 
after elected shall hold their offices until the close of the next 
succeeding reunion after their election.

Miss Grace Nye, Milwaukee, Wis. 
Dr. Fremont Nye, Westerly, R. I. 
James W. Nye, Marietta, Ohio. 
Loyal Nye, Binghamton, N. Y. 
Hon. Stephen A. Nye, Fairfield, Me. 
William Fessenden Jackson, Newark, N. J. 

"That the officers of said association shall be ex-officio 
members of said E.xecutive Committee." 

The second reunion of the Nye Family of America was 
held in Sandwich, Mass., August 17, 18 and 19, 1904. The 
program was similar to that of the preceding year but many 
new speakers were obtained and many other members of the 
Nye Family were present to form the acquaintanceship of 
others of their kindred. 

At the business meeting the following persons were 
elected as officers of the association for the year : Mr. George 
H. Nye, Auburn, N. Y., President ; Hon. David J. Nye, Elyria, 
Ohio, Vice-president ; Mrs. S. Curtis Smith, Newton, Mass.,

Mr. Harold B. Nye, Cleveland, Ohio. :'. 

In 1905 the association made a pilgrimage to Marietta, : 

Ohio, the first settling place of the Nyes in the Northwest 
Territory. This gave new life to all the members and espe- 
cially to those from the East, who had come for the first time, | 
many of them, into what had been to them the frontier of the | 
American civilization. The proceedings at this meeting i 
though similar to those of the others in their number of his- ■ 
torical papers were delightfully interspersed with visits to

The fourth reunion was held at Sandwich, Mass., August 
8, 9, lo, 1906. Th^s reunion was of great interest to all mem- 
bers of the family. Many new faces were seen among the 
kindred, who have attended each annual gathering. Beside 
the literary program the family were entertained by a recep- 
tion at Spring Hill, the home of Benjamin Nye, the First, by 
a boat carnival on the little lake, for which the citizens of 
Sandwich are noted, and by an all day pilgrimage to Plymouth, 
the landing place of the pilgrims. The closing exercises were 
held in the Casino and consisted of a promenade concert and 
farewell reception and ball.

Nye, Elyria, Ohio, President ; INIr. James L. Wesson, Boston, 
Mass., Vice-president; Mrs. S. Curtis Smith, Newton, Mass.,

608 THE NYE FAMILY 

Mr. William Y. Nye, Fairhaven, Alass. 
Mrs. Henry A. Belcher, Randolph, Mass. 
Mr. Everett I. N^-e, Wellfleet, Mass. 
Mrs. Jerome R. Hohvay, Sandwich, Mass. 
Mr. George H. Nye, .Auburn, N. Y.

The proceedings of each of these reunions have been pub- 
lished in pamphlet form and include all the addresses in full 
and accounts of each of the meetings and the social diversions 
of the gathering. They may be obtained from the secretary 
at very small cost. The officers of the association are glad at 
all times to give any information concerning the association 
or its meetings, or answer any inquiries from member? of the 
family on all subjects that they can. 

One may become a member of the association at ar.v time 
upon the payment to the treasurer of the membership fee and 
may continue a merr>ber by paying the annual dues. 



Explanatory Note. 

The arrangement of names and numbers attempted in 
this book is as follows : 

Every person who is a Nye by birth is given a number 
and if the head of a family concerning whom more is written, 
an asterisk (*) is placed before the number. This asterisk 
refers to the numbers in black-faced type in the following 
generation. By referring to that number a fuller account of 
the person may be found including a list of his children. The 
children of those who have married outside of the family are 
referred to by the same number as the Nye from whom they 
are descended. In like manner those who have married into 
the family are refened to in the index by the same number 
as the last Nye after whom their name appears. 

To trace one's Ime from the present time back to Benja- 
min^ it is necessary to find one's number in the index and thxen 
by referring to the account of his father, if he is a Nye, there 
will be found the name and number of his father, grandfather, 
great grandfather and so of each ancestor back to Benjamin.^ 
A reference to the corresponding numbers in the black-faced 
type will disclose a more detailed account of each of these 
ancestors. 

For instance, in the index of Nyes is found the name 
"Thomas 348." Looking back into the text we find in the 
black-faced type "348 — Thomas ,Xye (Jonathan."- Jonathan," 
Jonathan,^ Benjamm')." The names and numbers in the par- 
enthesis following Thomas Nye are the names and numbers 
of his ancestors. "Jonathan"-" being his father. "Jonathan-^" 
his grandfather ar-.d so on. In the list of the chiMren of 
Thomas will be found "*ioo6 Curtis Freeman . ."_ Now 
by referring to the number 1006 in black-faced type a fuller 
account of Curtis Freeman Nye and his children will be found. 

It is intended that these indexes shall contain all the names 
which appear in the text.
