Giles Stevens, an old resident of Reedsburg, Sauk Co., Wis. 
was born September 15th, 1833, in the town of Wright, 
Schoharie County, New York. His father was Samuel B. 
Stevens, a farmer in comfortable circumstances, who in his 
later years owned and operated a flouring mill. His mother's 
maiden name was Permelia Tripp. He received his education 
in the district school and in Schoharie Academy, and after 
graduating, began reading law in the office of Goodyear & 
Martin at Schoharie Court House, Schoharie County, New York, 
and afterwards in the office of Houck & Mackey at the same 
place. In October, 1S53. Mr. Stevens came to Wisconsin and 
located at Baraboo, Sauk Co. where he opened a law office, 
in partnership with J. S. Tripp, under the name of Tripp & 
Stevens. The next year, in July, 1S54, he removed to Reeds- 
burg and formed a partnership with J. Mackey under the 
firm name of Mackey & Stevens. In 1857 he formed a part- 
nership with Wm. Miles under the firm name of Stevens & 
Miles. This partnership continued until September, 1S61, 
when Mr. Stevens organized Co. B, Twelfth Wisconsin Volun- 
teer Infantry, at Reedsburg. and went to the civil war with 
the company. He participated in the battles and skirmishes 
at Lamar, Fernando, Coldwater, Hatchie river, Siege of 
Vicksburg, Baker's Creek and Jackson, in the State of Mis- 
sissippi, and at Big Shanty, Kenesaw Mountain, Xick-a-Jack 
Creek, Bald Hill and Atlanta, in the State of Georgia. On 
his return from the war. he re-opened his law office at Reeds- 
burg, and has ever since practiced his profession alone, with 
the exception of three years (1867,1868 and 1S69) when he 
was in partnership with W. A. Wyse, under the firm name 
of Stevens Sc Wyse. Mr. Stevens has always been a democrat 
but he disagreed so decidedly with his party when the Na- 
tional Convention of 1S96 adopted the so-called "Chicago 
platform" that he has since been without party affiliations. 
He served as county surveyor during the years 1S55 and 1856 
and was county judge of Sauk County from 1878 to 1882, 
inclusive. He never was a member of any society or club 
except the Masonic bodies, neither has he been a member 
of any church. Mr. Stevens has been a Mason for over forty- 
seven years. He received the Svmbolic degrees in Reedsburg 
Lodge Xo. 79 (now Ironton Lodge Xo. 79) at Reedsburg, Wis. 


in the winter of 1857-8, and the Capitular and Cryptic degrees 
in Baraboo Valley Chapter Xo. 49, and its Council of Royal 
and Select Masters, during the winter of 1879-80. The 
Orders of Knighthood were conferred upon him in St. John 
Commander}- No. 21, at Reedsburg, during the winter of 
1891-2, He has filled all the offices of the "Blue Lodge" 
except Treasurer and Tyler, the offices of King and Secretary 
in Reedsburg Chapter Xo. 56, and the offices of Captain 
General and Eminent Commander in St. John Commandery 
Xo. 21. He has also been Warder, Junior Warden, Captain 
General and Generalissimo of the Grand Commandery of 
Wisconsin, Deputy Grand Commander and Grand Com- 
mander. As a citizen, for uprightness, honesty and integrity, 
none stand higher than Judge Stevens, kind and helpful to 
all who come in contact with him, and in his home life con- 
siderate and good to all of his household.

Timothy Miles was one of the first settlers of Vermont. 
He married Theoda Blodgett and settled near Bennington, 
where he owned a large farm. The Indians were very 
troublesome and during one of the massacres he, with others,

for two years. His wife, not knowing what had become of 
him, sent for her father, who took her and her two daughters, 
Betsey and Nancy, to his home in Barnet; here she soon 
gave birth to a son, whom she named Timothy, but being a 
frail boy he only lived to be 17 years old. After two years

Jedediah S. Tripp, son of Silas and Martha Ann (Stephens) 
Tripp, was born in the town of Duanesburg, Schneetady 
County, in the State of New York, July 5th, 1S2S. He 
worked on his father's farm, attending the district school 
during the winters until he was eighteen years old, when he 
went to the Schoharie Academy at Schoharie, X. Y., teaching 
school part of the time to get the means for paying expenses. 
He continued in the academy acting part of the time as a 
tutor until the spring of 1S50, when he entered the law office 
of Goodyear Martin, in Schoharie, X. Y., where he continued 
reading law until June, 1S53, when he was admitted to the 
bar at a General Term of the Supreme Court at Albany, 
X. Y. In Xovember, 1853, he went to Wisconsin and lo- 
cated at Baraboo, in that state, entering into partnership 
with his cousin, Giles Stevens, now Judge Stevens, of Reeds- 
burg, Wisconsin. This partnership was dissolved in the 
spring of 1S54, and in September of that year he went to 
Sauk City, in said county of Sauk, and entered into partner- 
ship with Cyrus Leland. This partnership continued for 
about two years, after which he continued the law practice 
alone. In 1S6S he commenced doing a banking business, 
in connection with his law practice, but retired from law 
practice in 1S87, since wmich time he has confined his atten- 
tion to the banking business. 

He was postmaster of Sauk City from 1S54 to 1861, was 
town clerk of the town of Prairie du Sac, then embracing the 
villages of Sauk City and Prairie du Sac, for twenty years 
consecutively, was president of the village of Prairie du Sac,

much of the time for the last thirty years, and several times 
chairman thereof. He was member of the Wisconsin As- 
sembly in 1862, was a delegate to the national democratic 
convention at Cincinnati in 1880. He has been an independ- 
ent democrat since the advent of W. J. Bryan in 1S96. He 
was a charter member of Eureka Lodge No. 113, A. F. & 
A. M. of which lodge he is still a member. He has resided 
in Prairie du Sac, Wis. since 1S73. 

He is not a member of any church, but is a regular attendant 
at and liberal contributor to the Presbyterian church of 
Prairie du Sac, of which he is a trustee. 


He was first married in 1857 to Fannie W. Hallett of Little 
Falls, N. Y. She died in 1S65. He was again married in 
1874 to Nellie M. Waterbury, daughter of Hon. James I.

who died in infancy. His second wife died in 1893. 



The name Soule is of English origin with armorial bearings. 
Guillaume, meaning banner displayed. Armors granted the 
Soules 1 59 1. In the history of Xormandy, it says that de Soule, held and owned Chateau de Souie during 
the reign of Henry II, and it is still owned by the Soule 
descendants. Geo. Soule, 1590, who was a passenger on the 
Mayflower was a member of Gov. Winslow's family but how 
related is not known, but the love they had for each other 
continued all through life. He was born in 1590, married 
<Mary Becket in 1625. He was a man of distinction even in 
the days of plain living and plain speaking, and held his own 
as a citizen where essential services were needed. Every- 
thing held in the way of office was on his own probity and 
integrity, a wielding of his own personal power, which was 
felt his whole life long. He made his record as one of the 
volunteers, to aid those of Mass. Bay and community, against 
the Pequod Indians. In 1637 a garden place was granted 
him to lye his grounds at Powder Point. He with Standish, 
Alden, Winslow, Brewster, Howland, Eaton and Brown, 
settled at Duxbury, 1637. They were each granted 69 acres 
of land, as members of Plymouth Colony. They were all 
men of highest respectability, and took active part in the 
affairs of the colony. He was Duputy Gov. in 1645-46-50- 
5 1—53—54. He died in 16S0, and was buried at Duxbury, 
Mass. His wife died 1677. He was a stockholder of Pilgrim 
Suez Co., and also had an interest in Mass. Bay Colony. 
His cottage was fortified against the Indians, and under the 
eaves of the garret were hidden china galore, ebon}' desks 
and all sorts of eastern stuffs, gathered by the Soules, as they 
were emphatically men of the sea. Was 35th signer on 
board the Mayflower 1620.
