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-

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

tional Convention of 1S96 adopted the so-called "Chicago

and was county judge of Sauk County from 1878 to 1882,

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,
member of the county board of Supervisors of Sauk county
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.
Waterbury of Prairie du Sac, Wis., by whom he had one son
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
Guillav.mc 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.
