P REFACE 



Pope, as we know, is a name derived from the Latin papa 
or the Greek papas, meaning father or little father. In French 
the word is pape, and in German papst. 

As a surname, it is said to have been known in Britain in 
the fifth century. 

Several variations of the name are common; for example, 
Poppe, in Germany, also Pop and Popp. Then there is Poape 
found in colonial records, and the variations Popeson, Popham 
and Popeham. 

The name Popeham is a combination of Pope and ham, the 
home of Pope or the Pope family, ham being a corruption 
of the German heim, from which we get our word home. 

In Domesday book, one of the four free men, holding 
manors, was Popham or Popeham, who had an estate in Hamp- 
shire called by his name, which proves that he was of conse- 
quence. In the time of Edward III the family was prominent 
in Kent. 

In the British Museum's collection of manuscripts there is a 
little piece of parchment nine inches by five, with a round 
piece of dark green wax attached by a parchment tape, which is 
the oldest relic and memorial of any individual of our name. It is 
a deed of land made, signed, and sealed by a Ralph Pope nearly 
six hundred years ago. 

Pioneers or pilgrim ancestors were Joseph, who came from 
England about 1634 and settled in Salem. John, of Dochester, 
whose name appears in the list of freemen made in 1634, as 
Poape, was prominent in town affairs, and one of the pillars 
of the church. Thomas of Plymouth our ancestor in this 
country, sailed from Plymouth, Eng., on the 20 of Mar., 1629, 
in the ''Mary and John." Who he was or whence he came we 
are not sure but we know we descended from an ancient family. 

We are also representatives of a numerous family. Our 
ancestor, Thomas had 8 children (4 sons and 4 daughters.) 



6 Genealogy of Thomas Pope and Descendants 

Two of these were killed by Philip's warriors at Dartsmouth, 
and yet his grandchildren numbered at least 44. In tracing a 
single line through 1 7 families, we find an average of nearly 9 
to the family. 

We can also claim to be representatives of a distinguished 
family. The literary light of the family is Alexander Pope, the 
most famous English poet of his century. "Poetry his only 
business, and idleness his only pleasure," as he said of himself. 
Many have occupied positions of trust and honor. In military 
service we have an honorable place in the records of our country. 
There are no less than 38 names of Popes, mainly from the 
Plymouth and Dorchester families, who served their country in 
the War of Independence. 

In the mechanical and useful arts, and their practical ap- 
plication, the Popes have not been wanting; in short, from nearly 
all pursuits of life, the farm, the shop, the store, the professions 
of law and of medicine and the service of the Church, they have 
done their part and done it well. 

The committee to publish this Genealogy was appointed 
at the Pope reunion August, 1914, at New Berlin, N. Y. 

Through patient enquiry and much writing a record of 
many families has been found, yet a longer period might bring 
to light some hundreds more regarding whom it is to be regretted 
no history has been obtained. To humor a family pride, to 
dissipate some "traditions," to solve many puzzles and straighten 
many entanglements has been a labor of love, with no expecta- 
tion of reward other than that arising from the satisfaction of 
bringing into a collection form, for preserving such details 
of our family history as are deemed of general interest and which 
otherwise might in the lapse of a few years be lost. 

It has been the intention of the compilers to present an 
impartial account, to enter all names and dates with accuracy, 
while discrepancies between dates of some family records will 
no doubt be discovered yet it is proper to say that nothing has 
been given except on what was believed to be good author- 
ity and when conflicting dates were furnished, the decision was 
made on the best information accessible at the time. 

Brief memorials have been given whenever they could be 
obtained.

It would be impossible to prepare a work of this kind with- 
out some help from a great many families. The committee 
takes this opportunity to thank all these who have aided in 
any way. 

Our special acknowledgment is due the New England 
Historical and Genealogical Register for permission to reprint 
"Thomas Pope of Plymouth" by Franklin Leonard Pope (18). 
This was published in the Register for January, 1888. Many 
additions and corrections have been made. A large part of 
these came from manuscripts left by Mr. Pope. 

In reviewing the record now completed this thought is 
presented : How many of these, active in their day of usefulness 
are now numbered with the generations long since departed, 
examples among them of uprightness, virtue and integrity 
worthy of imitation, may we, their surviving descendants, 
learn wisdom therefrom, and gather the golden grains which 
they have strewn along the way.

GENEALOGY OF THOMAS POPE 

OF PLYMOUTH 



THOMAS POPE, is said by Savage to have been an inhabi- 
tant of New Plymouth in 1631, and to have been 67 
years of age in 1675. Although the authorities for these dates 
have not been found, there is no reason to doubt their correct- 
ness. If born in 1608 he would have been 21 years of age in 
1629, and it may be conjectured that he came to this country 
soon afterward. We are told in Blake's Annals of Dorchester, 
that 

In y e year of our Lord 1629, Divers Godly Persons in Devonshire, Somer- 
setshire, Dorsetshire & other places Proposed a remoue to New-England, 
among whom were two Famous Ministers, viz Mr. John Maverick (who I 
suppose was somewhat advanced in Age) and Mr. John Warham (I suppose a 
Younger Man) then a preacher in y e City of Exon or Exeter, in y e County of 
Devon. These good People met together at Plymouth, a Sea-port Town in 
y e S d County of Devon, in order to Ship themselues and Families for New 
England ; and because they designed to Hue together, after they should arriue 
here, they met together in the New Hospital in Plymouth and Associated into 
Church Fellowship and chose y e S d Mr. Mauerick and Mr. Warham to be 
their Ministers and Officers; the Rev. Mr. John White of Dorchester in Dorset 
(who was an active Instrument to promote y e Settlement of New England, and 
I« think a means of procuring y e Charter) being present & Preaching ye fore 
part of ye Day and in y e latter part of y e Day they performed y e work afore- 
said They set sail from Plymouth ye 20th of March, 1629-30,* . and 

arrived at Nantasket (now Hull) y e 30th of May 1630. 

These colonists settled at Mattapan in June, 1 630, and gave 
their settlement the name of Dorchester. 

The surname of Pope was very common at that day, and is 
still common in Devon, Dorset and Somerset. It is not improb- 
able that Thomas Pope and John Pope were among the passen- 
gers of the Mary and John. John was a freeman of Dorchester, 
September 3, 1 634, and in his will ( 1 646) he mentions a brother 

* The vessel was the Mary and John, of 400 tons, commanded by Capt. Squeb.

Thomas, who is supposed, with some reason, to be Thomas of 
Plymouth.* Another of the same surname known to have 
emigrated from England, was Joseph of Salem, 1634; there are 
also Walter of Charlestown, 1634, Thomas of Stamford, Conn., 
1 64 1, and John, who is listed as an emigrant to "Virginia" in 
1635, aged 28. What relation, if any, existed between these 
different persons and Thomas of Plymouth, can only be con- 
jectured. A family of the name settled in Kent as early as the 
reign of Edward III. (1327-77), among the Oxfordshire de- 
scendants of which were Sir Thomas Pope (died January 29, 
1558-59), guardian of Queen Elizabeth during her minority. 
The continual recurrence of the names Thomas and John in 
the Kentish families, as well as among those bearing the surname 
in the west of England and in this country, would appear to 
indicate a common descent. 

Of the life of Thomas Pope little is known beyond the brief 
entries which appear in the records of the town and colony of 
Plymouth, but these are sufficient to show that he was a man of 
positive character, and of some consideration in the community. 
His promptness in resenting a real or fancied injury, and his 
independent expressions of personal opinion, more than once 
caused him to be arraigned before the magistrates of New 
Plymouth, and no doubt ultimately led to his removal to Dart- 
mouth, where he passed the last ten years of his life. 

The records of the colony show that in the list of rates im- 
posed by the Court, January 2, 1632-2, and again January 2, 
1633-4, he was taxed 9s. October 6, 1636, he was granted five 
acres of land "at the fishing point next Slowly field, and said 
Thomas be allowed to build." June 7, 1637, we find his name 
among the list of persons who volunteered to go under "Mr. 
Prence" on an expedition against the Pequots. July 28, 1637, 
he was married by Gov. Winslow to Ann, daughter of Gabriel 
Fallowell. He sold his property at the fishing point to John 
Bonham, August 28, 1640, perhaps on account of the death of 
his wife, the precise date of which event is unknown. 

November 2, 1640, he was granted "5 acres of meadowing in 
South Meadows toward Gavans Colebrook meadows". His 

■• Rev. Charles Henry Pope, of Cambridge, Mass., has published a genealogy of the Dor- 
chester Pope family, with notices of other American families of the name. The results of 
Mr. Pope's personal researches into the history of the English Pope families are of great 
interest, and are given in full in his work which is entitled "The Pope Family." It was pub- 
lished by the author at 79 Franklin St., Boston, Mass., in 1888.

name appears in a list, August, 1634, entitled, "The names of all 
the males that are able to beare armes from XVI years old to 60 
years wth in the seuerall Toune Shipps." He was chosen 
constable June 4, 1645, and was on a jury August, 1645. In 
1646 he is found in Yarmouth. May 29, 1646, he married at 
Plymouth, Sarah, daughter of John Jenney. In 1647, June 1, 
an action for slander was brought against him, confessed, authors 
and defendants were brought in equally guilty, and damages 
paid. He was chosen surveyor of highways July, 1648, and 
again June 6, 1651. In 1652, July 26, and in 1656, he is "on an 
Enquest." In "December, 1663, Thomas Pope and Gyles 
Rickard, Senirt" were arrested "for breaking the King's peace 
by striking each other, and were fined each three shillings and 
four pence;" and "said Pope, his striking of said Rickard's wife, 
and for other turbulent carriages, in word and deed, the Court 
have centenanced him to find sureties for his good behavior." 
But nevertheless his temper soon got the better of him again, 
for we find him, February 7, 1664, and also May 2, 1665, 
quarrelling with one John Barnes about that fruitful subject of 
dispute, a boundary. He is recorded as having taken the 
freeman's oath in 1 668. In 1 670, June 7, he was again overhauled 
by the authorities, and as the record says, "fined 10 shillings for 
vilifying the ministry." Although he was now over 60 years old, 
these troubles doubtless influenced him in the determination to 
seek a new home, and accordingly we find him with others pe- 
titioning the Court in 1673 for a grant of land at Saconnett (now 
Little Compton, R. I.) For some reason not ascertained, this 
project was unsuccessful, for it appears in the record that he is 
"Granted leave since he and others cannot secure Saconnett neck 
according to the grant, to look out some other place, undisposed 
of, for their accommodation." Acting upon this permission, he 
secured a large tract on the east side of the Acushnet river at 
Dartmouth, tradition says by direct purchase from the Indians. 
This location, however, must have been included within the 
prior purchase made by Bradford, Standishand their associates, 
from the sachems Wesamequen and Wamsutta, on November 
29, 1652, which had been, by order of the Court in June, 1664, 
erected into a separate township to "be henceforth called and 

known by the name of Dartmouth." At a meeting of the 

proprietors of this purchase, held in Plymouth March 7, 1652, 

the township was divided into thirty-four equal shares, and 



1 2 Genealogy of Thomas Pope and Descendants 

hence it seems likely that Thomas Pope may have acquired 
one of the shares. A list made in 1652 shows that his mother- 
in-law, "Mistris Jenney," was one of the Dartmouth pro- 
prietors, and two of her sons, Samuel and John Jenney were 
among the early settlers of D. in the immediate vicinity of the 
Popes. Another original proprietor of Dartmouth was Robert 
Bartlett, whose son Joseph married, about 1662, Hannah, 
daughter of Thomas Pope by his first wife. The date of the re- 
moval of Thomas Pope to Dartmouth has not been ascertained, 
but it must have been about 1674. The settlement at Dart- 
mouth was a scattered one, and for better security and defence 
against the Indians, who had already begun to evince a hostile 
disposition, a fort or garrison house was built on the east side 
of Acushnet river, about half a mile north of the village of Ox- 
ford, the remains of which were visible until a recent date, on the 
lands of John M. Howland. 

In the early part of July, 1675, his son John, a young man 
of 22, his daughter Susannah and her husband Ensign Jacob 
Mitchell, were killed by a party of Philip's Indians, "early in the 
morning as they were fleeing on horseback to the garrison, 
whither the Mitchell children had been sent the afternoon 
before" (Gen. Reg. xv. 266.) This occurrence took place near 
the "frog pond" on the south side of Spring Street, between 
William and Walnut, Fairhaven. The settlement at Dart- 
mouth being isolated, scattered and difficult of defence, was 
shortly abandoned, and the deserted plantations were quickly 
laid waste and the buildings burned by the savages. 

The following order of Court passed by the government at 
Plymouth, is of interest here : 

(1675, 4th of October.) This Court, takeing into theire serious considera- 
tion the tremendus dispensations of God towards the people of Dartmouth, 
in suffering the barborus heathen to spoile and destroy most of theire habi- 
tations, the enimie being greatly advantaged therevnto by theire scattered 
way of liueing, doe therefore order that in the rebuilding or resettling therof, 
that they soe order it as to Hue compact together, att least in each village, as 
they may be in a capassitie both to defend themselues from the assault of 
an enimie, and the better to attend the publicke worship of God, and minnes- 
try of the word of God, whose carelesnes to obtaine and attend vnto, wee 
fear, may haue bine a prouocation of God thus to chastise theire contempt 
of his gospell, which wee earnestly desire the people of that place may seri- 
ously consider off, lay to hart, and be humbled for, with a sollisitus indeauor 
after a reformation thereof by a vigorous puting forth to obtaine an able,

faithful dispenser of the word of God amongst them, and to incurrage him 
therein, the neglect whereof this Court as they must not, and, God willing, 
they will not permit for the future.* 

No attempt appears to have been made for some three years 
to reoccupy the ruined settlement. Where Thomas Pope and 
his family found an asylum during this time, has not been as- 
certained. The following extract from the Plymouth records 
perhaps serves to throw a glimmer of light upon this question : 

Wheras Phillip, late sachem of Paukanakett, and other sachems, his 
accomplises, haueing bin in confeaderation and plighted couenant with his 
ma ties collonie of New Plymouth, haue lately broken couenant with the 
English, and they and theire people haue likewise broken out in open re- 
bellion against our sou r lord Kinge Charles, his crowne and dignitie, ex- 
pressed by raising a crewell and vnlawful warr, murdering his leich peo- 
ple, destroying and burning theire houses and estates, expressing great 
hostillitie, outrage, and crewellty against his said ma ties subjects, wherby 
many of them were personally slaine, and some bereaued of theire deare 
children and relations, among which said rebells and Indian named Popa- 
nooie is found to be one, who hath had a hand, and is found to be very 
actiue in the great crewelty and outrage acted vpon seuerall of the inhabi- 
tants of the towne of Dartmouth, in the said his ma ties collonie of New Ply- 
mouth, in particular it being manifest that hee was very active towards and 
about the destruction of seuerall of the children of Thomas Pope, late of 
Dartmouth aforsaid, and seueiall others of the said towne; in considera- 
tion wherof after due examination had of the premises, this Court doth hereby 
condemne and centance him, the said Popanooie, and his wife and children, 
to perpetuall sevitude, they likewise being found coepartenor with him in the 
said rebellion, and particularly that hee, the said Popanooie, is to be sold and 
sent out of the country. [July 13, 1677.] 

It appears also that about a year previous to this (June 1 2, 
1676), several Indians who had been captured and sent in by 
Bradford and Church were "convented before the councell" at 
Plymouth, being "such of them as were accused of working 
vnsufferable mischieffe upon some of ours." 

One of these prisoners, named John-num, being accused by 
his fellows, acknowledged, among other misdeeds, that he was 
concerned in the murder of "Jacob Mitchell and his wife and 
John Pope, and so centance of death was pronounced against 
them, which accordingly emediately was ekecuted."f 

The following order of Court relating to the resettlement of 
Dartmouth explains itself. 

To John Cooke, to be communicated to such of the former Inhabitants of 

Datrmouth as are concerned herein.

The councell being now assembled, considering the reason and necessitie 
of that order of the Generall Court made the 14"' October. 1075, respect- 
ing the rebuilding or resettling the Towne of Dartmouth, a copy wheof is 
herewith sent, and considering withal] that all the people of that place, by 
theire deserting it, haue left it to the possession of the enimie, which, through 
the good hand of God on the indeavors of this colonie is now recouered againe 
out of the enimies hand, do soe much the more look at it as a duty incombent on 
this bounce! to see the said order effectually attended, doe therefore hereby 
prohibite all and euery of the former inhabitants of the said towne of Dart- 
mouth, or theire or any of theire assigns, to make any entrance on, building, or 
settleing in any parte of the said former township of Dartmouth vntil satis- 
factory eccuritie be first given to the Court or councel by some of the principal 
persons heretofore belonging to that place, that the said Court order shall in 
all respects be attended by them, as the transgressors of the prohibition will 
answare the contrary att theire perill.* 

Of the subsequent history of Thomas Pope little is known 
beyond what may be gathered from his will, which is as follows: 

[683. July the 9th. The last will and testament of Thomas Pope, 
being Aged and weak of body but yet in perfect understanding and memory 
wherein I have of my estate as followeth; I give unto my son Seth as an 
addition to what I have formerly given him ten shillings in money also I 
give unto my grandson Thomas Pope all that my twenty-five acres of up- 
land and two acres of meadow lying and being on the west side of Acush- 
enett River be it more or less, and it is my desire that his father may take 
the said land into his hands and make the best improvement of it that he 
can for the good of my said grandson until be comes of age to make use of 
it himself; also it is my mind that my son Seth shall in consideration of the 
aforesaid land pay three pounds sterling unto my grandson Jacob Mitchell 
when he comes to age of twenty one years. Also I give unto my daughter 
Deborah Pope five pound in money, and to each of my other daughters 
five pound a peace in moneu; also my meddow lying at the south Meddowes 
in Plymouth or the value of it, I give to be equally divided amongst all my 
sons and daughters; also I give and bequeath unto my son Isack all my seate 
of land where I now dwell with all the meddowes belonging thereunto and all 
the privilages thereunto belonging. To him his heirs and Assigns forever, 
but and if it should please god that he should decease without an heir before 
he comes to the age of twenty and one years, then my said seat of land shall 
belong unto the sons of my son Seth. Also I give unto my son Isaack all my 
housing and household goods of all sorts, also all my cattle and horse kine 
and swine; Also all sorts of provisions, also cart and plowes with all the takeling 
belonging unto them. Also I give unto my said son Isaack all my money except 
that which I have given to my daughters, and I order my said son Isaack to 
pay all my just debts and to receive all my debts that are due unto me also I 
order my Indian Lydia to live with my son Isaack until he is one and twenty 
years of age, and my Indian gerle I give to him during his life, also it is my 
mind and will that my son Isaack shall make no bargain without the con- 
sent of his overseers until he be twenty years of age, I have made choice of

John Cook, and my son Seth and Thomas Taber to be for overseers to see this 
my will performed. Thomas Pope his J mark. 

Signed and sealed in presence of 
John Cook 
and Thomas Tabor. 

Isaac and Seth Pope took out letters of administration on 
the estate November 2, 1683; which approximately fixes the 
date of the death of Thomas. They gave bonds in £400. 

The homestead farm conveyed by the above will to Isaac 
Pope, contained 1^2 acres, and comprised the larger portion of 
the thickly-settled portion of the present town of Fairhaven. 
Its north line was a little south of the south line of the street 
leading east from the bridge. 

Before the Acushnet cemetery was laid out, which was dur- 
ing the reign of Queen Anne, about 1 7 1 1 , an acre of the Taber 
farm, half a mile or more north of the bridge, on a point of land 
projecting into the river, had been set apart for a burial ground, 
and it is there that Thomas Pope was probably buried.*

Plymouth, was built in part by Jacob Mitchell, who was a carpenter, and in it he lived after 
his marriage until he removed to Dartmouth. It is on the west side of Sandwich Street, 
about twenty rods south of the bridge.

Second Generation 

2. 

Seth 2 Pope (Thomas*), b. in Plymouth, Jan. [3, [648; d. in Dartmouth, 
March 17, 1727. The records give no information concerning his early 
history. Tradition, in part confirmed by the records, says that about 
1070 he appeared as a peddler in Sandwich, whereupon the constable, 
in pursuance of a regulation then in force, ordered him to depart, lest in 
future he might become a charge upon the town. He accordingly with- 
drew, taking occasion, however, to remark that he would yet come back 
and buy up the town. Procuring a boat at Monument, he followed the 
coast round to Acushnet, where he settled within the present limits of 
Fairhaven, and by his industry, energy and skilful business management 
ultimately became one of the most wealthy and influential citizens of the 
old colony. [678-9, March 8, an allowance was ordered by the Court 
to be made him for expenses and time returning guns to the Indians after 
Philip's war; 16K5, June 2, was chosen selectman of Dartmouth; 1686, 
March 4. took the oath of fidelity; June 2, again chosen selectman; 
June 4. commissioned lieutenant. He was chosen representative from 
Dartmouth to the General Court at Plymouth in 1689 and 1690; magis- 
trate for Bristol County, July 7, 1691, and justice of the peace in Dart- 
mouth, May 27, 1692. He is named as one of the fifty-six proprietors 
of Dartmouth in the confirmatory deed of Gov. Bradford in 1694. June 
F2, 1695, he appeared in Boston in behalf of his townsmen, to urge an 
abatement of taxes. He appears to have been for many years largely 
interested in the coastwise trade, and had a wharf and warehouse at 
Acushnet. In 169^ he was part owner of the sloop Hopewell, and in 1709 
of the sloop Joanna and Thankful. In 1700, by way of fulfilment of his 
promise made thirty years before to the Sandwich constable, he pur- 
chased a large amount of realty in that village, including the grist- 
mill, fulling-mill and weaving-shop, which was valued at the time of his 
death at £3460. His estates in Dartmouth were extensive and valuable,

Seth 3 Pope (Seth 2 ). Born in Dartmouth, April 5, 1689; died in Sandwich, 
Nov. 23, 1744. He probably settled in Sandwich as early as 1709, where 
his father owned a grist-mill, fulling-mill and weave-shop, of which he 
was placed in charge. This property was given him by his father's will, 
with the somewhat peculiar provision that, in case he did not keep the 
works in proper repair, the executors were from time to time, as found 
necessary, to take charge of and repair them, and operate them until the 
expenditures had been paid. Nevertheless, on October, 1734, we are told 
that "a committee waited upon the miller, Mr. Pope, to know if they could 
not be better served in grinding their corn." Married first (date and place 
unknown), Hannah dau. of Elisha and Patience (Skiff) Bourne, of Sand- 
wich, (born May 4, 1689, died March 18, 1744-5). Children, born in

Seth 4 Pope (John? Seth?). Born in Sandwich, Jan. 3, 1701; died 1769. He 
was a respected citizen of that town, and was frequently chosen to fill

Thomas 4 Pope (John? SetH 2 ). Born in Sandwich, 1708; died March 2, 
1784. Resided in Sandwich, and afterwards in Dartmouth near the 
junction of Acushnet Avenue and the Fairhaven road. His dwelling was 
the first building burned by the British troops after leaving the "head of 
the river" in their raid of 1778. Married first, Sept. 26, 1735, Thankful 
Dillingham, of Harwich (born 1718, died April 13, 1756); and second, 

* Probably to be identified with Elizabeth Pope who married (i) Edmund Pearsall (or 
Purcell) and (2) Joseph Tobey. She lived in Martha's Vineyard during the Revolution in 
which war she lost both her husband and her father. She had children before she married 
Joseph Tobey, and moved to Smyrna, Chenango Co., N. Y., in 1796, where they were among 
the earliest settlers. Joseph Tobey came to Smyrna first in 1795 with Joseph Porter but 
did not bring his family until the next year. Joseph Porter's wife was Jerusha Pope, also a 
daughter of John Pope, She did not live long and was buried on the farm where she had 
made her home, now known as the Talcott farm close by Smyrna village. 

John Pope is said to have lived in Providence, R. I., during the Revolution and to have 
entertained General Washington in his home. The Tobey family have a letter written under 
date of Sep. 27, 1757, by Saoraon Athearn of Tisbury in Martha's Vineyard to John Pope. 
In this letter John Pope and family are addressed as "Dear Cnildren." 

Joseph Tobey and his wile are buried in the cemetery on the Tobev homestead 1 1-2 
miles west of Smyrna village. This has remained in the possession of the family since it 
was first settled by them 120 years ago and is now occupied by Edmund Pope Tobev. The 
only reason for questioning the identity of "Betty" and "Eiizabeh" is a discrepancy in the 
record of birth as given by F. L. Pope and that computed from the age as stated on tombstone. 
This says "Elizabeth Tobey Died August 6, 1848, aged 83 years." Smith's Chenango and 
Madison County History makes the statement that Elizabeth Tobey lived to an age up- 
wards of 84 years. If date of death is given correctly on tombstone, as it probably is, and 
she is identified with "Betty", she was in her 94th year at the time of her decease. 

Joseph Tobey died Feb. 15. 1830, aged 71 years. 

Edmond Pearsall Tobey, a grandson of Joseph and Elizabeth Tobey, married Lucy Pope 
Woodard (25).

Franklin Leonard 8 Pope (Ebenezer, 7 Ebenezer, 6 Seth,' Seth, 4 John? SetH 1 ). 
Born in Great Barrington, Dec. 2, 1840. Was telegraph operator in G. 
B., Springfield and Providence, R. I., from 1857 to 1862; assistant engineer 
of American Telegraph Co. in New York until 1 864 ; assistant engineer 
of Russo-American telegraph from Washington Territory to Siberia and 
Behring's Straits (partially completed and abandoned in 1867), in which 
capacity he made the first exploration of the region lying about the sources 
of the Skeena, Stickeen and Yukon rivers in British Columbia and 
Alaska 



Genealogy of Thomas Pope and Descendants 29 

This expedition required great courage and skill in dealing with the treach- 
erous Indians. It involved much hardship to traverse a country large tracts 
of which were wholly unknown. The necessary explorations were carried 
through successfully but the construction of the telegraph line, which was in- 
tended to connect the United States with Europe by Bering Strait, was given 
up on the completion of the first Atlantic cable. 

In 1867 he settled in Union township near Elizabeth, New Jersey, where 
he resided until 1894, though his place of business was in New York City. At 
the later date he removed to his former home at Great Barrington, Mass. 

He was an electrical engineer and author of note. He studied law and 
established himself as a patent lawyer, solicitor and electrical expert. In this 
capacity he was employed by some of the most important concerns in this coun- 
try, among them the Postal Telegraph Co., the Am. Bell Telephone Co., and 
the Westinghouse Electric Co. In 1869 he- formed a partnership with Thomas 
A. Edison and James N. Ashley under the style of Pope, Edison and Co., Elec- 
trical Engineers. He was an expert draughtsman and held a position in the 
draughting department of the Scientific American from 1859 — 1861. He se- 
cured several patents, the majority being for a railroad semiphore block signal 
system for use on trunk lines. He was a member of the British Institution of 
Electrical Engineers and one of the first Vice-Presidents and second President 
of the Am. Institute of Electrical Engineers. 

He was a large contributor to various electrical journals, among them the 
Journal of the American Electrical Society of Chicago. He was editor of the 
"Electrical Engineer," and "The Telegrapher." His "Life and Work of Jo- 
seph Henry" is said to have been the ablest and most interesting paper on that 
subject. Perhaps his most noteworthy writing was "Modern Practice of the 
Electric Telegraph" which was canied through 15 editions. In 1886 he pre- 
pared a paper on the "Western Boundary of Massachusetts" embracing a 
study of the Indian and colonial history which involved an exhaustive research 
of the unpublished manuscripts archives of the adjoining states and local town 
and country records. This has been pronounced a model historical work. 

He died from an electric shock received in the basement of his home in Great 
Barrington, Oct. 13, 1895. He was alone at the time and just how the accident 
occurred could not be determined. 

To the descendants of Thomas Pops he is of special interest because of 
the work done in study of the family history. As an expression of our appreci- 
ation, his portrait forms the frontispiece of this volume. The results of his study 
as far as completed were published in the N. E. Historical and Genealogical 
Register for Jan., 1888. He contemplated a complete history cf the family. 
Some of his unpublished records have been available to the present committee 
and all corrections ot his manuscript that have come to light have been made. 
He was also the one who planned the Pope Convention held on the old home- 
stead of Gates Pope (171 ) at Columbus Quarter, Chenango County, New York, 
August 22, 1888. 175 were present. This gathering did more than any other 
single thing to stimulate an interest in the geneaology of the family. For this 
occasion a somewhat elaborate program was prepared. The Hon. Seth G. Pope, 
(17,) acted as chairman. Wm. F. Langworthy (219) gave the welcome in a 
brief speech. Addresses were made by Rev. John D. Pope, now of Lynn, Mass.

Gershom 5 Pope, (Seth 4 , John*, Seth 2 ). Gershom Pope was born August 22, 
1743. On March 1, T762, his father gave him half of the homestead farm 
on the Eastern edge of Plainfield, Conn. About this time he married 
Hannah Smith, a daughter of a Voluntown neighbor. He served in the 
Northern Army under Arnold and Gates, and tradition says he attained 
the rank of Captain. The War Department gives this record of him: 
"It is shown by the records that one Gershom Pope was a member of 
Captain Samuel Hall's company of Light horse, 4th Connecticut Regiment 
commanded by Major Ebenezer Backus, Revolutionary War. His 
name appears on a pay roll of the above named company, without date, 
with remarks as follows: When march Sept. 8; when discharged, Nov. 2; 
Days in service. 60. This company was in service in the year 1776." 
On Sep. 8, 1776, his regiment marched for New York but was relieved on 
Nov. 1 , and highly complimented in general order of George Washington. 
In 1779 he sold his property in Plainfield and removed to Bennington, Vt. 
In 1792 he purchased from Judge Cooper 240 acres of land in the extreme 
northern portion of the present township of Burlington, N. Y. for which 
he paid about twelve shillings per acre. Gershom and his seven stalwart 
sons, four of whom had grown to manhood, as well as two sons-in-law, 



32 Genealogy of Thomas Pope and Descendants 

Joseph Smith, and William Monroe, all of whom were settled in the 
vicinity of Burlington when the Census of 1790 was taken. 

The first town meeting in Burlington was held April 2nd, 1793; on 
which occasion Gershom Pope was elected Commissioner of highways, 
a position that meant more with the unsettled and primitive conditions of 
the country than now. He continued to reside in Burlington, an honored 
and respected citizen, until his death March 22, 18 10, at the age of sixty- 
seven. His wife survived him twenty years, and in the churchyard at 
Burlington Green their mortal remains rest side by side. Two white 
marble slabs mark their graves. These are in contrast with the dark- 
stones usuallv found on old graves. His stone has the following inscrip- 
tion: 

"In memory of Mr. Gershom Pope, who departed this life the 22nd of 
March, 1810, in the 68th year of his age. 

Lo! here entombed the body mouldering lies, 
Till the Arch-Angels trump shall bid it rise. 
The soul released with rapture wings its way 
To the bright regions of eternal days." 

There is also a marker placed by the D. A. R. It is traditional that he 
was a man of fine personal appearance, strong and positive character, un- 
blemished integrity, a consistent Christian, liberal in supporting the in- 
stitutions of religion, generous to less successful neighbors, an arbitrator 
and peacemaker always, traits which we know to have been abundantly 
reproduced in his posterity to this day. 

The following obituary notice of Hannah Smith Pope was printed at 
the time of her death, February 9, 1830: 

"Died in Burlington, on the 9th inst., Mrs. Hannah Pope, in the 88th 
year of her age. She was the relict of Gershom Pope who died in 1 81 o. He 
was a soldier of the Revolution and with him she suffered all the priva- 
tions, cares, and anxieties, incident to that interesting period of our country. 
They were among the first settlers of Burlington, and did much to alleviate 
the privations and hardships to which the first settlers of a new country 
are exposed. She was a native of Sterling, Conn. Through a long life, 
in all her relative duties, she supported a respectable and amiable charac- 
ter. Her descendants were twelve children, 129 grandchildren, and 115 
great grand children, in the whole 256. She was truly a mother in Isreal."

at Bennington, Vermont:

Genealogy of Thomas Pope and Descendants 5 1 

It would seem that several families from Burlington came to Columbus 
about the same time for there was Joshua and John Brooks, brothers of 
Alice and Betsey, who settled near the Pope farm. How John and Alice 
gained possession of their farm, later known as the Charles Crego farm, is 
told by Ann Eliza Crego, "Uncle John and Aunt Alice loaded their house- 
hold goods in a wagon and came from Burlington. The only house on the 
place was a log cabin on the road occupied by some squatters. They 
stopped in front of the house; the squatter's wife was out gathering greens 
for dinner. Aunt Alice came down from the load, took a chair and carried 
it into the house, and locked the door and sat down, before the squatter's 
wife could get in. That gave Uncle John possession. 
In the book of Records of the 1st Free Baptist Church of Christ in Bur- 
lington, we find that on March 14, 18 10, a council met at the home of Bro- 
ther John Pope to organize a church. He and his wife being among the 
Charter members. Nearly all the church or business meetings were held 
at his house until June 20, 1816, when mention is made of a meeting house. 
There was scarcely a meeting that he did not preside as Moderator or 
acted in a committee to deal with some delinquent brother or sister. 
In 1820 the Free Baptist Church of Columbus Quarter was organized and 
again we find John Pope among the charter members. He was blind for 
many years before he died. His remains lie in the Lloyd's Burying 
Ground.

Timothy Pope 6 , (Gershom b , Seth*, John 3 , SetH 1 .) Born June 16, 1770; d. 
November 9, 1835; m. Hannah Stickney. (She was born May 10, 1775; 
d. April 18, 1842). 

Timothy Pope lived in Otsego County until 1804, when he moved to 
Oswegatchie, St. Lawrence County, N. Y. While in Otsego County, he 
was in the militia, serving as lieutenant in Francis Henry's Regiment. 
From. 1806 to 181 1 he served as Captain in St. Lawrence Co. About 
1 8 1 6 he moved to what is now known as Popes Mills, where he lived until 
his death, by being killed by the bursting of a mill stone. He was a man 
of influence and considerable wealth. At the time of his death he owned 
two saw mills, a grist and woolen mill, and 2000 acres of land. A large 
dog which he owned refused to eat after his death and mourned himself to 
death. Three dates have been given for his death, 1832, 1835, and 1838.

were born in Plainfield, Conn., March 5, 1778. Their father had been in 
the Revolutionary War the year before and named his sons after Generals 
Gates and Arnold. The twins were very small and an ordinary tea-cup 
could be placed over their heads. When Gates was about a year old the 
family moved from Connecticut to Bennington, Vt., where they lived for 
eleven years. The next move was to Burlington, N. Y. Here he lived 
for several years, and it was here that he met and wooed Betsey Brooks.

moved in 1 8 14. 

Gates and Betsey were members of the Free Baptist Church in Burling- 
ton, and were charter members of the church at Columbus Quarter. He 
was deacon of the church for twenty years, or from its organization to 
his death. He is described as a small, spare man, with brown hair and 
blue eyes, while Betsey was a large woman, with dark brown or black 
hair and eyes. 

Gates died July 21, 1840, aged sixty-two years. Betsey, his wife died 
two years later at the age of sixty-five, and they are buried in Lloyd's 
burying ground at Columbus Quarter. The following verses are on his 
tombstone : 

"Here lies the saint of a pure mind, 

Who was to all most loving and kind ; 

He now has gone to reap his great reward, 

And left his name on long record. 

Though worms devour this mortal frame 
And it returns to dust: 
In Heaven my soul will praise God's name, 
For I did in Him trust."

Columbus, Dec. 26, 1830, Mellissa Howard, daughter of Zephaniah and 
Olive (Smith) Howard, (b. March 7, [810; d. in Columbus, Dec. 3, 1899). 
The rites were performed by Edward Champlin, a Justice of the Peace. 
Their wedding trip was not taken in a Pullman car on one of our modern 
railroads with sleeping and dining apartments, nor with their wildest 
dream could they have imagined our horseless carriage with speed of 
from ten to sixty miles an hour, but happy and content they drove away 
with the primitive ox cart. 

All of his life he was a farmer and nearly all of his days were spent on the 
Pope homestead just off the main highway at Columbus Quarter. The 
Pope family's relation to the school was close and constant, for Gates 
Pope was trustee from 1815 to 1837, almost without interruption, his son 
Sidney Pope, from 1838 to 1865, and J. L. Pope from 1868 many times 
until his death. 

Deacon Sidney Pope united with the local Free Baptist Church in 1830, 
and was a member for fifty- four years and served it as deacon for forty- 
four years. 

He died at his home July 23, 1884, aged 75 years, 3 months and 8 days. 
The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. A. T. Worden of Ames, 
N. Y., and the Rev. John M. Langworthy, of Utica. He lies at rest in 
the Lamb's Corners Cemetery in his native town. 

He was always and everywhere known as a wise and good man and his 
advice and council was extensively sought by his neighbors and fellow 
citizens. He was hard working, thrifty, prosperous, generous, public 
spirited and enterprising. Had he been what is known as an "educated 
man" he might easily have won the first and highest places in business or 
politics, but his lot forbade, and he confined his power and genious to the 
humble affairs of the modest farmer. 

He was a philosopher by nature and very broad minded, loving to look 
out upon the advancement made in his time and join in the efforts as 
largely as his mission as a farmer permitted. Each year he expected to 
lay aside his work and go out through the busy world to see and learn what 
it was accomplishing and many of us can remember his graphic though 
homely descriptions upon his return of what he had seen and learned. 
Within his life the Erie Canal was opened from Buffalo to the Hudson, 
thus uniting the great lakes with the Atlantic. He saw Ethiopian 
slavery in all its power and crushed to death by an angry people. He 
knew of the building of the first railroads. He voted for Abraham Lin- 
coln, the great Liberator, and Savior of his nation. He knew the day 
of the tallow candle and pine torch, and with his closing years saw the 
marvels of the electric light. 

He was always sincere and faithful as a Christian and showed an un- 
usual love for all his family and relatives. In the terrible trial of his last 
sickness he looked up to God and about to his children and wife and with 
courage fought the fight and entered into rest. Children:

One of them being under age, the father went in his place, later this son 
was drafted and his mother raised S300 to keep him home. The father 
served three years and then re-enlisted and served till the end of the war 
when he was honorably dis - h irged and received a veteran's medal. Al- 
though he was with Sherman on his famous march to the sea and in the 
battle of Pittsburg Landing he received no wounds. His son John how- 
ever was wounded in the first skirmish and his father was delegated to 
be his nurse and while he was apparently recovering his father was called 
to battle. As soon as it was over he rushed to the bed-side of his son ti 
tell him of his safety only to find he had died from the shock of seeing so 
many of the wounded soldiers brought into the hospital.

March 5, 1778; d. in Hamilton, N. Y., Dec. 21, 1858 and was buried in the
