PREFACE, 



In compiling a work of this kind, gathering genealogical 
data from so many different sources, no one only those who 
have had some experience in this line of work, has any ad- 
equate idea of the amount of time, labor, and expense that 
is consumed in investigation and research, which is requi- 
site for a full and complete record. Many embarrassments 
are encountered which give the compiler no little anxiety, 
especially so in some of the correspondence and records 
that have been received from many friends and interested 
parties, which were better than the average, yet some have 
been so illegible that great care and due diligence have 
been exercised to avoid as many errors as possible in the 
compilation of this work, but undoubtedly some will be 
found. It is impossible to get every date correct, there be- 
ing so many discrepancies in records of dates and names. 

To many unacquainted with genealogical information, 
many of the items or records contained herein, though very 
valuable and interesting, may seem too trivial or too much 
beneath what is called the "dignity of history" to be in- 
serted, yet it may be observed, that we are not entirely com- 
petent judges of what may be valuable or interesting to 
those who shall come after us. Instead of polished sen- 
tences, or well turned periods, truth in its simplicity should 
be the aim of the genealogist and historian. A person can 
rvrite a book in a very short time, but there is not a person 
that will ever live long enough to gather all the records 
and important data which might be found concerning the 
Prince family since their emigration to this country to the 
present time. 



PREFACE. 

The study of genealogy is so very fascinating that the 
compiler has considered the task of gathering what is con- 
tained herein a pleasure rather than a burden, although it 
is far from being complete, and far from being what the 
compiler might desire. It is hoped, however, that it may 
stimulate some future historian or genealogist to collect 
the stray threads of family life and gather them into com- 
pleteness, and to such the compiler would say that he has 
in his possession a large amount of valuable information, 
not herein contained, which would be of great utility to 
those contemplating the same. Hoping that this little vol- 
ume will meet the approval of the present generation who 
give it a perusal, and of the generations which are to 
follow, and that any corrections or additions will be 
kindly forwarded to the compiler, is the wish of 

The Author. 
Danielson, Conn., 1899.

DANIEL AND JAMES PRINCE. 

[twins.] 



DESCENDANTS OF DANIEL PRINCE. 



I. "First Generation." — Daniel' Prince was born in Birm- 
ingham, Old England, May ist, 1755. He joined the British 
army and came to this country in 1777 under General Bur- 
goyne, and was probably with him in his contemplated 
grand march through Canada and Eastern New York to 
the sea, which was brought to an inglorious end by his 
surrender to General Gates, at Saratoga, Oct. 17, 1777. 
Burgoyne and his army were sent across the country to 
Boston as prisoners of war. In passing through Massa- 
chusetts, many of the British fell out by the way, and sub- 
sequently became American citizens. Mr. Prince was one 
of this number, and took up his residence in Williamsburg, 
Mass. In 1779 he married Mary Packard, of Goshen, 
Mass. She was the daughter of James Packard, one of the 
first settlers of Goshen, and was a native of Bridgewater, 
in this state. Mr. Prince died in Springfield, Mass., April 
23, 1828. His wife died May 21, 1816. Their remains now 
rest in the cemetery at Springfield, Mass. They had the 
following eight children — three sons and five daughters:

and reliable.

"O, Time and Change ! with hair as grey 

As was our Sire's in bye-gone day. 

How strange it seems with so much gone 

Of life and love, to still live on! 

Yet Love will dream and Faith will trust 

That somehow, somewhere, meet we must."

Genealogy of Robert Prince. 

OF Salem, Mass,, 

AS COMPILED BY F. A. Prince, with a few extracts 

TAKEN FROM "SOME MATERIAL FoR A GENE- 
ALOGY," BY E. Putnam, from "Histori- 
cal Collections of Essex 
Institute," vol. xxvii. 



It is merely conjecture that Richard and Robert Prince 
were brothers, yet such may be the case. It has also been 
supposed that Rebecca Prince, who married Capt. John 
Putnam, the next door neighbor of Robert Prince, may 
have been a sister of Robert. This is more than probable 
from evidence in possession of the writer. She was called 
"step-daughter" of John Gedney, which serves to still more 
complicate the family relations in this case. 

I. ROBERT PRINCE, b. ; died at Salem village, 

now Danvers, Mass., June 4, 1674; will dated May 24, 
1674; proved June 30, 1674. Mentions sons, James and 
Joseph. Daughter, Elizabeth. Wife, Sarah, to be execu- 
trix. Thomas and John Putnam, overseers. Robert mar- 
ried April 5, 1662, Sarah Warren of Watertown; ; she 
died in jail, May 1692. She married second, Alexander 
Osborne, an Irishman, whose conduct in attempting to hold 
the property occupied by his wife after her sons became of 
age, is not to his credit. A lawsuit was needed before the 



ROBERT PRINCE, OF SALEM, 13 

property was recovered. Sarah Osborne was accused of 
being a witch by the "afflicted girls." Her second mar- 
riage was unhappy and so depressed her that her mind, 
dwelling upon that and her changed fortunes, became un- 
balanced, and on the 29th of February warrants were duly 
issued for her arrest. She was convicted and sentenced to 
death, was committed to prison and heavily chained. Frail 
in body and feeble in mind she yet had strength enough to 
maintain her innocence of the charge made against her, 
and from March 7th to May loth she languished in Boston 
jail, when death, more considerate than man, released her 
from her bonds. She was a woman of excellent character, 
only marred by the fact of her marriage with a man whom 
she had hired to carry on the place. The gossip excited 
by this act told against her at the trial. 

The house built by Robert Prince is still standing (see 
illustration) with many changes, on Spring avenue, now 
Danvers, Mass., formerly Salem village. It is owned by 
St. John Roman Catholic college and is used as a farm 
house. It remained in the Prince famih' until 1800. The 
original grant was that made to William Pester, but was 
afterward the property of Capt. William Trask who sold to 
Robert Prince in 1659. This grant contained about 150 
acres, and lay, all of it, westerly of Summer street and 
northerly from what is now Maple street, over toward the 
Newburyport turnpike. Robert Prince also owned land on 
the westerly side of Ipswich river. 

For further information concerning Robert Prince, his 
grant, and his widow, Sarah Osborne, the reader is referred 
to the work of Hon. C. W. Uphani, or "Salem Witchcraft 
in Outline," by Mrs. C. E. Upham.

II. JAMES (3), b. in vSalem village, Aug. 15, 1668; 
d. 1724; m. previous to 1693, Sarah Rea, widow of Jacob 
Phillips, b}' whom she had a daughter. Silence Phil- 
lips, baptized at same time as her mother, Sept. 17, 
1693, and who married Dr. Amos Putnam, of Danvers. 
James Prince was a farmer and lived on the homestead. 
In the division of their father's estate, James had the east- 
ern and Joseph the western part. The dividing line was 
Beaver brook, which enters a larger brook, called Whip- 
ple's brook, near where is now the house of Mr. Guilford, 
on Nichols street. The will of James Prince was proved 
April 3, 1724. All of the real estate was given to sons 
James and David. Jonathan received ^100; to daughters, 
Charity, Sarah Reding and Rebecca, ^40 each; James had 
the homestead and orchard in front. In 1720 James and 
Joseph Prince had joined in deeding to their sons, David 
and Robert, a forty-acre farm near Ipswich river, which 
had belonged to their father, and the title of which was in 
controversy at the time James made his will, Aug. 20, 1723.

beth (Robinson) Prince, b. in Salem village; bapt. there 
Sept. 8, 17 1 7. Removed to Pomfret, Conn., near his other 
brothers, where he married Mary Holland, dau. of Joseph 
and Elizabeth Holland. He lived in Pomfret (that part 
which is now Brooklyn) until after 1757, as he was until 
this date one of the Mortlake Society of this place. (This 
old Mortlake Society's records commence in the year 1731, 
and are in the possession of Charles G. Williams, of 
Brooklyn.) On vSept. 29, 1755, William Prince was chosen 
society collector for Mortlake Society, and June 10, 1756, 
was elected member of Pomfret Library. On Jan. 6, 1757, 
William Prince was chosen one of the committee to take 
care of the school money. Soon after this, between 1757 
and 1760, he moved to what was called the North Parish 
of New London, now Montville, Conn. His wife, Mary, 
united with the Congregational Church there, under the 
pastorate of the Rev. David Jewett, about 1765. She 
died there April 18, 1799, aged 77 years. Inscription on 
gravestone: "Mary Williams, whose first husband was 
William Prince, died April 18, 1799, aged 77 years, 4 
months." William Prince died there (Montville) Feb. 21, 
1773, in the 56th year of his age; buried in old churchyard 
on Raymond Hill, Montville. After the death of William 
Prince, Feb. 21, 1773, his widow (Mary) soon after married, 
second. Rev. David Jewett, who had been pastor at the 
above place for a number of years. Jewett's first wife, 
"Patience," died Nov. 14, 1773. He died June 6, 1783. 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 23 

There is no record of the marriage of the Rev. David 
Jewett to his second wife. Soon after Rev. Mr. Jewett's 
death, his widow, Mary (Holland) (Prince) Jewett, mar- 
ried, third. Mar. 17, 1785, William Williams. She died as 
above stated, and was buried beside of her first husband, 
William Prince, in Raymond Hill cemetery, Montville, Ct. 
William Prince was a large landholder in Montville, and 
at one time owned the farm on which Captain Jerome W. 
Williams now lives (1896). He became greatly entangled 
by debt and was obliged to make an assignment of his 
property, which left him much impoverished at his death: 
Elizabeth Holland, the mother of Mary, (his wife) died at 
Montville, Aug. 23, 1762, aged 64 years. Joseph, the 
father, died Nov. 18, 1762, in the 68th year of his age.

Timothy Prince's name appears on Pomfret Probate 
Records, book 11, page 22; also Maj. Timothy Prince's in- 
ventory, page 33-4, same book; also Maj. Timothy's dis- 
tribution of his real estate, page 393, There is also in 
book 12, page 302, something concerning John Prince, son 
of Col. Timothy Prince. 

Cannot sa}' whether the above relates to Timothy, Sr., 
or Timothy, Jr.; probably the latter. 



AND HIS DEvSCENDANTS. 25 

There is also in Brooklyn cemetery, Brooklyn, Conn., a 
gravestone with the following inscription: "In memory of 
Mrs. Polly Prince, wife of John Prince, who departed this 
life Jan. 26, 1808, in the 42nd year of her age." Perhaps 
she was (Polly Hayward), and that he was John, son of 
James and Hannah Putnam. See No. 29. Can anyone 
give me information about this John?

the country for miles around. Beautiful scenery surrounds 
them on all sides, and no less than seven church spires can

tention to the duties which pertain to farming.

Albert and Ophelia (Elliott) Prince, on May 12, 1894, 
celebrated their golden wedding anniversar}', and the fol- 
lowing poem was written for the occasion by their grand- 
son, Charles Henry Prince. 

A FIFTY SUMMER VOYAGE. 

I'm not much of a poet, — 

Rhymer, I like much better; 
So you need not call this a poem. 

Just call it a family letter. 

We have assembled here, 

A little band, absorbed in countr}^ lore, 
With congratulations and old time yarns 

Since the days of forty-four. 

From different sources we've come, 

As in the good old days of yore, 
There's always a fire on the hearthstone, 

A warm greeting at the door. 

The circle about you is almost complete, 
Here are fathers and mothers and brothers, 

All wishing the same long life and health, 
Misters and sisters and others. 

We all join in with one accord. 

In the quaint old-fashioned way. 
Both young and old, the timid, the bold, 

Upon this festive day. 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 75 

This is our cry, it's loud, it's long, 

As it falls upon our senses, 
"Long live the king," "Long live the queen," 

And long, long live the Princes. 

But hark! catch the echo as it clearly sounds 

In response to this our cry; 
Though man may fall and pass away, 

His works shall never die. 

And if we're not the same dear friends 

You in your youth did know, 
We love you as they did who met 

Just fifty years ago. 

This is your golden wedding day. 

The diamond is to follow. 
The others all were yesterday, 

And this is but to-morrow. 

There's many a change since you came home 

As bridegroom and as bride; 
Your little ones have all grown up. 

Been borne out with the tide. 

But there's one chair that's vacant. 

And the picture on the wall 
Reminds us of him who has left you, 

Answering to the heavenly call. 

He was the first to leave you. 

But follow all, we must; 
It is sad, but bright the outlook 

With an unfaltering trust. 

Since forty-four, those days of yore. 

By storm and sunshine tried. 
In changing wind and weather 

Have you roughed it side by side. 



76 ROBERT PRINCE, OF SALEM, 

Wise sailors you have both become 

Upon this voyage of life, 
For the captain is a noble man. 

The pilot a noble wife. 

The voyage is fifty summers long, 

The race is almost run. 
And 'tis little I know of its calms and storms, 

vSon of your son. 

To me it is now tradition, 

You've landmarks that are gray, 

And you alone can tell the happenings 
Of 3'ears ago to-da3^ 

But I've garnered from your stories 

Of pleasure and of care. 
Many thoughts of dear remembrance, 

Clinging close to grandpa's chair. 

For this is home, how dear the name. 

How quiet like and still, 
We love it all the more because 

It's wa}' up on the hill. 

And you have lived up here alone 

And carried on the farm, 
Through stormy seas, till close to port. 

You're sailing in a calm. 

The flickering lights gleam faintly. 
As the life boat nears the shore, 

Faith and hope keep it from sinking, 
And will keep it evermore. 

Pause a little ere the landing, 
Just one look back o'er the sea. 

One reflection, then 'tis finished, 
What I have to offer thee.

Your lives are as the wheat field, 
That is heavy with golden grain, 

For ye've lived unto God's glory. 
Ye have not lived in vain. 

Will others say the same of us 

Who live in years to come? 
God grant us all a golden voyage. 

And a golden harvest home.

his birth-place, (North Grosvenordale) where extensive 
changes were to be made in getting ready for the building 
of one of the largest mills in New England, together with 
one hundred tenements. While there he was married, 
Ma}' 30, 1S72, at the parsonage of the Rev. Jabez Pack, in

with her parents to Thompson, Conn.; was the first of 
three children of Charles and Sarah Elizabeth Chaffee. 
Mr. and Mrs. Prince, subsequent to their marriage, 
lived in North Grosvenordale about three years, removing 
from there to Perry ville, Mass., and after staying there two 
years removed to Danielsonville, (now Danielson) Conn., 
where he built for himself a residence on Mechanics St. 
Later he purchased the fine residence where he now re- 
sides. In 1880 he assumed charge of the wood shop of the 
Ouinebaug Co., which position he has held for nineteen 
years. In i8S8 he was elected a Burgess of the Borough, 
which position he held for three years, and again in 1893, 
was elected to the same position. In 1892 the town of 
Brooklyn elected him as second Selectman, which position 
he filled with such general satisfaction that he was again 
elected in 1894, again in 1895, and still again in 1896, thus 
serving the town four years as its Selectman,

On May 30, 1897, Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Prince celebrated 
their silver wedding anniversary, and among the many 
beautiful tokens of remembrance from their many friends 
is the following from their oldest son. It was entirely un- 
expected, and the manner in which it was read added so 
much effectiveness to the occasion that it brought tears to 
many eyes. Following we give it in full: 



lOO ROBERT PRINCE, OF SALEM, 

LINES 

On the Silver Wedding Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. F. A. PRINCE, 
May 30, '97, composed by Charles H. Prince, and affectionately dedicated 

To Father and Mother. 

Dear Parents and Friends: 

I ask you for a moment to listen 

To one who is sincere, 
Who wishes blessings to attend 

Through all your life's career. 

Toda}' we have assembled 

Our kind esteem to pay, 
To you who have been united 

In fighting life's untried way. 

Not in "single blessedness," 

But happily together, 
Have you faced the fight victoriously 

Through changing wind and weather. 

So we come today with greetings, 

With merry hearts and true, 
To show the kindly feelings 

That time hath won for you. 

The twenty-five years have swiftly passed 
From the da}^ of your marriage date — 

A day historic in our land, 
Sad in our countrj-'s fate. 

And now o'er the years that have vanished 
Let us pause for a moment to gaze; 

If life hath had some trials. 

It must have had pleasant ways.

AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

Perhaps a bit of the story 

Of how it all came about, 
Might be of interest to some of you 

Who now are in much doubt. 

Years ago in Woodstock town, 

Nestling among the hills, 
Fed by the produce of farm lands, 

Nourished by Nature's rills, 

Lived, not a mile from each other, 

A youth and maiden fair, 
He of the Princes loyal. 

She of the debonair. 

Time works out its changes; 

Cupid was never still 
Till out from the thrifty farmlands. 

Out from over the hill 

He brov ght the youth and maiden. 

Now grown to riper years, 
And drove them toward the parson's. 

Free from all cares and fears. 

Straight to the dominie's house the}' went; 

Bright shining was the sun, 
And brighter still their faces 

After the deed was done. 

Fair were the plans and castles 

Builded then in air; 
They seemed to you all so real 

And free from every care. 

And sweet mem'ries still you cherish 

Of the days that are no more, 
But the future is still brighter 

For the burdens pressing sore. 



ROBERT PRINCE, OF SALEM, 

Two sons have come to lighten 

And help you in the fight; 
Though the elder one has left you. 

He feels your watchful sight. 

The younger son. who's still at home, 

I trust will always be 
A blessing to you, till at length 

He leaves the paternal tree. 

And what if there's silver in your hair 

Which soon will turn to gray! 
We are not blind to what it means — 

You cannot always stay. 

Beauty will faint, and fade, and die. 

Only leaving a light behind, 
But as it fades and moments fly 

The calmer grows the mind. 

And may the love that now cementS; 

Your happy hearts as one, 
Grow deeper, sweeter, as the years 

Roll onward, one by one. 

May the path you walk be strewn with flowers, 

Through every changing scene, 
And may adversity's dread hours 

Be few and far between. 

A veil that hangs before our eyes 

Keeps future years concealed, 
But in yon distant, blissful heaven 

To God they stand revealed. 

As He thro' paths of grief or joy 

Conducts you as His own. 
May you in every changing scene 

Say, "Lord, Thy will be done." 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. IO3 

Your golden wedding may you reach, 

Though distant it appears, 
No memory of a word or deed 

To dim your eyes with tears. 

Surrounded then by loving friends 

And all that life endears, 
Give those a thought who then shall be 

Within the eternal years. 

For some who stand beside you now 

The coming years to greet. 
Will not be there to celebrate 

That day so fair and sweet. 

Will not? How do we know but then. 

More lovingly than now, 
Unseen, unfelt, their lips shall rain 

Love tokens on your brow? 

And when our earthly lives shall close, 

And dust to dust be given, 
May we all here together walk 

The golden streets of heaven.

The following in regard to Thompson's first ministers 
may be interesting to some of the descendants whose an- 
cestors were married by Thompson ministers: 

REV. MARSTON CABOT was ordained pastor of the 
First Church in Thompson, Conn., Feb. 5, 1730, and filled 
that position until April, 1756. covering a period of twenty- 
six years of faithful service, during which time eight hun- 
dred and thirty infants were baptized by him. 

REV. NOADIAH RUSSEEL was ordained Nov. 9, 1757, 
faithfully serving until 1795. Nine hundred and twenty- 
six children were baptized by him during his ministry. 

REV. DANIEE DOW was ordained April 20, 1796, 
serving until 1849. 

The noticeable feature is that the pastorates of the first 
three preachers of Thompson First Church covered a pe- 
riod of one hundred and nineteen years.

124 RECORDS OF OTHER PRINCE FA:\IILIES. 



For the benefit of those who shall follow after me I here- 
by append the following records: — ['Author]. 

In the "Charlestown, (Mass), Genealogies," by Wy- 
man, on page 778, is mentioned a Richard Prince as hav- 
ing been admitted as an inhabitant, with T. Larkin as se- 
curity, Feb. I, 1674; also one or two other Princes. In 
"Griffin's Journal", publishedat Orient, Long Island, N.Y., 
in 1S57, by Augustus Griffin, is the following: "James and 
John Prince were brothers. John settled in Southold, 
where he died in 1675 aged 78 years. Do not know wheth- 
er James ever came to America. Joseph was John's son, 
born 1 7 19; died in 1805. There were other sons, — Joseph, 
Benjamin and Thomas. John Prince, the first son, had 
three sons, — John, Ezra, and Morton. Ezra died in 1824; 
his wife was Phebe Horton, by whom he had two sons, — 
Albert and Orrin; also daughters, — Martha, Betsey, Eucre- 
tia, Phebe and Ann. Orrin, born 18 16, married Maria L. 
Welles, 1839." 

There was a Richard Prince admitted a freeman at Sa- 
lem, Dec. 27, 1642; a vSamuel Prince, at Hull, May 8, 1678; 
and also a Samuel Prince, at Hull, May 9, 1680. 

Richard Prince and Sarah Rix, of Salem, were married 
Dec. 25, 1677, and had children: — 

Richard, b. Jan. 21, 1678. 

Joseph, b. Dec. 28, 1680; d. Sept. 14, 1691. 

John, b. Sept. 15, 1682. 



RECORDS OF OTHER PRINCE FAMII.lES. 125 

The following notice appeared in The Boston Daily 
Advertiser, Wednesday morning. September 11, 1844, 
The Advertiser copying from the Philadelphia North 
American, and they from the London Times. 

Copied verbatim ct literati))!, by the author, F. A. Prince,

JAMES prince, deceased, HEIR-AT-EAW WANTED. 

Any person who can establish their claim to be heir-at- 
law of James Prince, formerly of Oxford, afterwards of 
London, cooper, and who died at Hoxton, in 1774, will 
hear of something greatly to his or her advantage by ad- 
dressing a letter to J. Waterlow, 24 Birchin Lane, London. 

James Prince's brothers were named Edward, Joseph 
and John. Edward Prince formerly carried on the busi- 
ness of a cooper in London, and is supposed to have immi- 
grated to America about the year 1736, at which period he 
had four children, named Mary, James, Edward and Jo- 
seph. 

Any person giving information which may lead to the 
discovery of the descendants of the said Edward Prince 
will be rewarded for their trouble. Persons reading this 
advertisement and acquainted with any one by the name 
of Prince are requested to draw their attention to it. 

In the History of Gloucester, Mass., by John J. Babson, 
page 129, is the following: — 

Thomas Prince is called brother-in-law of Thomas Skil- 
lings. He came to Gloucester before 1650 and settled at 
the Harbor, on what is now Front St., where the family 
continued to reside more than a hundred years. He also 
had land in Fisherman's Field. He had a wife, Margaret, 
who died Feb. 24, 1706. He died Jan. 17, 1690, aged 71, 
leaving an estate of ^153. His children were Thomas, 
born 1650; John 1653; Mary 1658; and Isaac, 1663. Thomas 



126 RECORDS OF OTHER PRIXCE FAMILIES. 

Prince, Jr., married Elizabeth Haraden, Sept. 27. 1676, 
and died Jan. 11, 1705, leaving children. — Edward, 
Elizabeth, John, Isaac, Sarah, Abigail. Of these, John 
became a sea captain, and died April 19, 1767, aged 90 
years. He married first, Abigail Ellery; married second, 
Mary, widow of Elder James Saj^ward, and had eight chil- 
dren, — John, Isaac, Mary and five other daughters. John 
died young. Isaac married Honor, daughter of Richard 
Tarr, and they had Sarah and John. This John married 
Mary, daughter of Jonathan Haskell, in 1755, and they 
had Mary, born in Gloucester, Aug. 20, 1758; John, born 
in New Gloucester, Me., Jan. 20, 1761. 

John and Isaac, sons of Thomas Prince, Sr. , do not appear 
to have been married in town. Isaac received a soldier's 
lot at Kettle Cove, in 1679, instead of John, and was here 
ten years later, but afterwards disappeared. Isaac, son of 
Thomas Prince, Jr., born in 1683, is supposed to be the 
same who married Honor Wonson, widow, in 1730. The 
onh' male issue of this marriage recorded is a John, born 
in 1734; he is perhaps the only settler of New Gloucester^ 
Me., of that name. No descendants of Thomas Prince 
bearing the name have resided in Gloucester for many years- 

The following record of Samuel Prince was found on 
Towm Records in Amherst, Mass., which is all there is in 
regard to Samuel: 

Children of Samuel and Irene Moody Prince. 

Sophia, b. Dec. 21, 1787.

For the benefit of the readers, and especially to those 
who wish to further collect, publish and gather into com- 
pleteness the records of the Prince family, the following 
information may be of service: — 

Capt. Howard I^. Prince, Washington, D. C, has col- 
lected quite a considerable of Prince material. 

Freeman Bradford Prince, 289 Commercial St., Salem, 
Oregon, has a large amount of information on line of 
Thomas Prince, of Gloucester, Cape Ann, Massachusetts 
Bay, Essex Co. 

Frederick W- Prince, Hartford, Conn., (with Gatling 
Gun Co.,) has quite an amount on line of "Elder John," 
of Hull, of whom he is a descendant. 

John T. Prince, Joy St., Boston, Mass., has in Mss. 
quite a full and complete record of Capt. Job and wife, 
Elizabeth. 

Capt. Greenleaf Cilley, U. S. N., and his brother, Gen. 
Jona P. Cilley, Rockland, Me., have Prince records. 

Thomas Prince, Esq., Boston, Mass., former publisher 
of The Mass. Historical Genealogical Register, has Prince 
records in Mss. 

Col. Edward Prince, Quincy, 111., has in Mss., and is 
still collecting for a genealogy. Hope the near future 
may bring its presence to the present generation for perus- 
al which are so deeply interested in the records of their an- 
cestors. 



128 RECORDS OF OTHER PRINCE FAMILIES. 

The author of this volume, F. A. Prince, Danielson, 
Conn., has in his possession quite a collection of Prince 
records, not herein contained, of value to any one who is 
contemplating a complete genealogy of the Prince family. 

George Prince, of the sixth generation, published a pam- 
phlet of 32 pages, in Feb., 1888, on line of "Elder John" 
Prince, of Hull, Mass., which is a very valuable help to 
the genealogist. Printed by C. W. Symonds, Boston, 
Mass. 

A well-bound book of 27 pages, containing a memorial 
of the Rev. Ammi Gushing Prince, being a report of the 
funeral services and also his obituar}-, by Rev. George D. 
Lindsa3% was printed in 1895 by Hunt & Eaton, 150 Fifth 
Avenue, New York. 

The New England Magazine for Feb., 1894, published 
by Warren F. Kellogg, 5 Park Sqr., Boston, Mass., con- 
tains "Twelve Hundred Miles on Horseback One Hun- 
dred Years Ago," from the Diary of Hezekiah Prince, by 
George Prince, being an account of Hezekiah Prince's ad- 
ventures on horseback one hundred j-ears ago. The mag- 
azine contains 12 pages of this very valuable old record. 

A souvenir is in possession of the author containing a 
complete account of the gathering of many descendants of 
Hezekiah and Isabella Prince, of Thomaston, Me., at 
Spencer, Mass., Aug. 20 to 30, 1891.
