PREFACE. 

The Tripp records contained in this small vol- 
ume do not comprise a full genealogy of the 
Tripp family in America. No such work has 
yet been undertaken so far as the writer has 
ascertained. These records were mainly gathered 
while the author was engaged in collecting data 
for his Dean family history. As he is related by 
blood to Isaac Tripp, the first of the Tripp name 
to settle in Luzerne county contemporaneously 
with his Dean ancestor, he was easily persuaded 
by some of his Tripp relatives to continue his 
labor and print the result of his researches and 
correspondence for the benefit of all who might 
be interested in the Tripp family records. While 
the original plan of the author to i)rint and bind 
the two family records together has been carried 
out in the main, he has deemed it best to issue a 
limited number of copies of the Tripp book sepa- 
rately for the benefit of those who are not inter- 
ested in the Dean records, and thus enable them 
to procure the part they want at a small cost. 

The chief merit the author claims for this 
work is its accuracy, so far as painstaking care 
would lead to that end. That there are numer- 
ous errors which readers will discover he readily 
concedes. Seldom has he found two persons who 
would furnish exactly similar copies of the 
records of the same family. As his information 

iii 



has come to him mainly in copies furnished by 
some member of a family, he has had few oppor- 
tunities of proving the accuracy of the record. 

That this record is incomplete in some lines is 
due to the fact that all trace of some branches 
of a family is lost, and letters mailed to the last 
known address have elicited no reply. 

Much delay has been caused by the dilatoriness 
of correspondents who seem to think that any 
time is as good as the present for matters of so 
little importance as family history. 

The plan of this work is quite simple, and a 
brief explanation will enable any one whose 
name appears, or who can trace his descent from 
any of those herein named, to follow back his 
line to the immigrant and founder of the family 
in America, John Tripp, of Portsmouth, E. I. 
The numeral at the end of the Christian name 
represents the generation, counting from John 
as of the first generation. The consecutive 
figures in heavy type in front of each name, is 
the number of the individual and reappears in 
brackets in the center of the page when that 
individual is discussed or becomes the head of a 
family. The general index of Tripps at the end 
of the book indicates the page where the indi- 
vidual is to be found. 

Take for illustration the name Harry^^ M. 
Tripp on page 38. The figures " 11" show that 
ho is of the 11th generation from John^. He is 
the son of Alem^o, whose number is 169, as 
shown by the central number in brackets. Turn 
back to No. 169 found on page 37 and it is seen 



IV 



that he is son of Charles®, whose number is 158, 
and he the son of Danford® C. No. 155, who was 
son of Thomas'' No. 124, who was son of Wil- 
liam® No. 12, who was son of Job^ No. 3, who 
was son of Isaac^ No. 1, the founder of the 
family in Luzerne county, Pa., who is assumed to 
be the son of Job^ of Peleg^ of John^ by the 
process of reasoning contained in pages two and 
three. 

The author takes this opportunity of express- 
ing the hope that all who read these pages will 
take new and deeper interest in collecting and 
preserving family records so that the task will be 
less difficult for the future genealogist who 
undertakes the work of preparing a complete his- 
tory of the Tripp family in America.

The Tripp Family. 

The fact that the writer's grandmother was a 
Tripp, and her family prominent in the history 
of Luzerne and Lackawanna counties, is a suffi- 
cient reason to warrant the putting into perma- 
nent form such--i-ecords as he has been able to 
gather of this family. The Tripps in this 
vicinity, as well as many others of the name 
scattered over the United States, spring from 
John Tripp, who came from England and located 
at Portsmouth, R. L, in 1638, when about 28 
years of age. He was a carpenter by ti-ade. His 
wife was Mary Paine, daughter of Anthony 
Paine. He was a prominent citizen, filling the 
office of deputy many terms, also membei- of the 
town council. He died in 1678. His children 
were : 

John, born about 1640. 

Peleg, born about 1642. 

Joseph, born about 1644. -- 

Mary, born about 1646. 

Elizabeth, born about 1648. 

Isabel, born about 1651. ~~" 

Abiel, born about 1653. w-""^ 

James, born about 1656. 

Martha, born about 1658. 



Ifc is the writer's belief that our family of 
Tripps are descended from Peleg, second son of 
John Tripp. The reasons for this belief will be 
given later when discussing the family of Job 
Tripp. 

Peleg Tripp married Anna Sisson, daughter of 
Richard Sisson, the immigrant. 

It is a cuiious circumstance that in my own 
household, after many years, the Tripp and Sisson 
blood is again united. 

My grandmother was a Tripp, making me a 
descendant of John Tripp, and my wife was a 
Sisson, direct descendant of Richard Sisson, 
hence in my children is united the blood of these 
old Tripp and Sisson immigrants. 

Austen's Dictionary of Rhode Island families 
which furnishes the data concerning the first 
three generations of Tripps does not give the 
dates of birth of Peleg's children, but their names 
in the following order : 

John. 

Priscil].a. 

Sakah. 

Job. 

Peleg. 

iMary. 

Ann. 

Meihtable. 

Richard. 

Juflging from the birth dates of the children 
of John 'J'ripp, oldest brother of Peleg, we can 
saf.-ly fix tlif birth of Peleg's first child at about 
K>«>7. and allowing two years between births 



would give 1683 as the date of the last child, 
Richard's birth. 

Job, the fourth child, would fall on or about 
1673. It is from this Job, son of Peleg, that we 
believe the Tripp family in Luzerne and Lacka- 
wanna counties descends. The evidence is far 
from satisfactory or conclusive, but in absence 
of definite proof we must be content with such 
as can be had. The prevalence of the name Job 
in our Tripp line leads us to attach our family to 
Job rather than to any other decendant of John. 
We know that Job was born not far from 1673. 
We find the birth of a second Job recorded in 
Arnold's Vital Records of Rhode Island, on 20 
Apiil, 1701, who could have been a son of the 
first Job. This second Job had a son Job, born 
28 June, 1734. We have discovered no record of 
the birth of our ancestor, the first Isaac, who 
came from Rhode Island among the early emi- 
grants to the Wyoming Valley, but we can ap- 
proximate the time, as he was an old man when 
killed by the Indians in 1778. Hence he could 
have been born any time from 1700 to 1710. 
We know he had a son Job, as will be shown 
later. The only Job we know of who could have 
been Isaac's brother is Job 2d, born 20 April, 
170 1 , whom we have assumed to be the son of 
Job 1st, son of Peleg. There was only one Job 
in the 3d generation of Tripps in this Rliode 
Island family, and there was no Isaac, hence the 
most reasonable conclusion is that our Isaac"* 
was a brother of Job^, son of Job®, son of 
Peleg2, son of John^. 

Job Tripp was admitted a citizen of Newport 

3 



Ill 1726 ; was deputy or member of the Assembly 
for North Kingston in 1734 and 1738 ^ 

A Job Tripp was deputy for the town of Exe- 
ter in 1757''. 

Job Tripp, Jr., w^as admitted a citizen of Exe- 
ter in 1757^. 

Job Tripp was admitted a citizen of Warwick 
in 1759*.

Our definite family records of Tripps begins 
with the 1st Isaac, born about 1700. We know 
nothing certain of his birth either as to time or 
place, and only inferentially as to his parentage. 
The vital records of many towns in Rhode Island 
are in a detective condition due to fire, ravages 
of the pubhc enemy and natural decay. Hence 
it is not strange that many names are lost even 
if once placed upon the town records. We learn 
fioni history that Isaac was a Quaker in religion, 
a faith that had many followers in the early 
days of Rhode Island. That he was a man of 
abihty and substance will appear from the cir- 
cumstances herein recorded. An Isaac Tripp, 
eitiier father or son, was admitted a citizen of 
Warwick in 1758^

Isaac** Tripp, Sr., was one of the early settlers 
in the Wyoming Valley, and no doubt the occa- 
sion of his selling his property in Warwick, R. I., 
was to enable him to invest largely in the new 
settlement on the Susquehanna and Lackawanna 
rivers. As early as 1768, he, with another of the 
writer's ancestors, Ezra Dean, was appointed as 
a connnittee for Rhode Island to admit the first 
two hundred settlers under the Connecticut title 
to lands in Wyoming Valley ; and Isaac Tripp 
was on the same day appointed to serve on a 
committee with Benjamin Follett, John Jenkins, 
William Buck and Benjamin Shoemaker, "to 
approve, admit, oversee, superintend, manage, 
and order the affaii's and proceedings of the first 
forty settlers, to receive and order the moneys 
granted to their use, to lay out and prepare a 
coavenient road to said Susquehanna river, etc. "^ 

After the ineffectual attempt to make a per- 
manent settlement in 1763, Isaac Tripp, with the 
first forty settlers arrived in the valle}^ 8 Feb- 
ruary, 1769. 

We have seen in the earlier part of this book' 
that Ezra Dean was one of these forty settlers. 

It is quite likely that these two men, Isaac 
Tripp and Ezra Dean, were neighbors and inti- 
mate friends in Rhode Island, as both were 
agents of the Connecticut Susquehanna Company 
for that State, and togetlier shared the dangers 
and i)rivutioiis of pioneers in a new country sur- 
rouiiiU'd with Indian foes, and whites no less 
hostile. On their arrival they found the im-

provements and blockhouse erected by their 
friends in 1762 in tlie possession of the Pennsyl- 
vania proprietors, under command of Captain 
Amos Ogden. Isaac Tripp and Benjamin Follett 
of the executive committee, and Vine Elderken, 
M^ere selected to negotiate with Ogden, at his in- 
vitation. No sooner were they within the fort 
than they were arrested by Sheriff Jennings, and 
were carried off to Easton jail. Here they quick- 
ly secured bail and returned to Wyoming^. 

Thus began the Pennymite war which was 
waged with great fury and much bloodshed be- 
tween the settlers, under the Connecticut title, 
and the Pennsylvania proprietors. During these 
trying times Isaac Tripp was a prominent man 
in the colony. If the Westmoreland records 
were only within reach of the anxious inquirer 
for facts relating to the eaily history of the val- 
ley, much interesting family data would, no 
doubt, be disclosed concerning Isaac Tripp and 
his children. But these valuable records have 
long been lost or destroyed. It is only an occa- 
sional glimpse into the past that we now can 
gain after diligent research. We find that the 
town of Exeter, in Luzerne county, just north 
of Kingston, was granted to Isaac Tripp, John 
Jenkins and Jonathan Dean 28 November, 1772'. 

In 1777 Isaac"* Tripp was representative to the 
Connecticut assembl}' for Westmoreland, the 
name of the town comprising the Wyoming val-

ley, which was attached to the county of Litch- 

field^ 

In a letter of Judge Jesse Fell of Vv^ilkes-Barre 
to the state commissioners, dated 29 May, 1802, 
he states that the grant of the town of Provi- 
dence had been obtained by Isaac Tripp^. 

The Susquehanna Company on 2 June, 1773, 
appointed Gideon Baldwin, Timothy Keys, and 
Isaac Tripp, directors or proprietors of Provi- 
dence^. 

A list* of the original owers of lots in the cer- 
tified town of Providence is given by Isaac Tripp, 
son of Isaac Tripp, Esq., as they existed 22 March, 
1773, in which it appears that 

Isaac Tripp, Esq., was owner of lot No. 13.

Isaac* Tripp settled on the Capouse meadows, 
now within the city of Scranton, as early as 1771, 
as also did his son-in-law, Jonathan Slocum*. 

His son Isaac^ Tripp, Jr., was a purchaser in 
the same locality between 1772 and 1775. Isaac 
Tripp purchased certified lot No. 14, of Daniel 
Adams, 7 July, 1771:. The deed is copied entire 
in Hollister's History of Lackawanna Valley®.

21 October, 1788, Matthew Taylor, of Danbury, 
Conn., sells to Isaac Tripp, of Susquehannah, 
one- half of certified lot No. 11 of Providence ^ 

9 October, 1780, John Staples of Wilkes-Barre, 
sells to Isaac Tripp one-half of riglit No. 7 at 
Providence, and recites that Staples got it of 
Captain John Howard, of Windham, Conn., who 
got it of the proprietors^. 

Isaac* Tiipp, Sr,, was killed by Indians after 
the Wyoming massacre, 16 December, 1778, 
while assisting his son-in-law, Jonathan Slocum, 
to feed stock from a stack in the field on the Slo- 
cum farm where now is the city of Wilkes-Barre. 
Slocum was also killed and a son William 
wounded'. 

It would be interesting to many readers to 
find here an account of the capture of Isaac** 
Tripp's granddaughter, Frances Slocum, by the 
Indians, and her long captivity and life as the 
wife of an Indian chief ; but it would be too long 
for insertion in a family record of this character. 
It must suffice to say that when she was discov- 
ered by her brothers in 1837, she refused to leave 
her home with her children, near Peru, Indiana, 
and return to civilization. I must refer those 
who are interested in her history to the account 
found in Miner's History of Wyoming, Peck's 
History of Wyoming, and a more complete and 
later account in Maginnis' Life of Frances 
Slocum. 

The family record of Isaac* Tripp, Sr., is not

authentic. No private or official record has thus 
far been found. Some of his children are known, 
but whether the list here given is complete or 
not, we do not know. The oldest living descend- 
ant of whom we have knowledge is Mrs. Polly 
(Tripp) Bobbins, living at 1422 N. Main avenue, 
Scranton, Pa., who is a daughter of Stephen 
Tripp, son of Isaac Tripp, Jr., of Providence, 
hence great dranddaughter of Isaac Tripp, Esq., 
the first of the name to settle in Wyoming Val- 
ley. Mrs. Bobbins tells the writer that from 
tradition the family of Isaac'* Tripp, Sr. , was the 
following : By his first wife, who was a Sweet^, 
he had a son William^, who was a sailor, and no 
record of him is preserved. 

He married for his 2d wife a Spencer, and had 
two children : Job^ and Ruth^. He mariied for 
his 3d wife, Sarah Dow, and had Isaac® and 
Henry® Dow Tripp. 

Assuming the tradition to be correct we would 
then have the following as the record of Isaac 
Tripp's children :

3. Job®. 

■ 4. Ruth®. '■'•'■' - niiaa-v. -i^c,

6. Henry® Dow. 

We also find in the Rhode Island records an 
account of a Samuel Tripp, son of Isaac Tripp, 
of Exeter, born 19 April, 1735, and died 10 June, 
179S^. His age would make him contemporary

lo 



with the children of our Isaac* Tripp, but as we 
have no proof or tradition that he was of the 
same family, we have not included him in the list 
of our Isaac's children. 

It is somewhat remarkable that so little is 
known of Job Tripp's descendants by the family 
of his brother Isaac. My father, Isaac Dean, 
who has the widest acquaintance of any person 
living, with the descendants of Isaac, knows 
nothing of Job's family, though many live in the 
same and adjoining counties. What data I have 
been able to collect has been secured from records 
or correspondence with members of the family. 
I will follow the same plan Avith the Tripp as in 
the JQean genealogy, taking up each child of 
Job*^, and writing all that has been learned of 
such child and his or her descendants before 
taking up the family of Isaac, which will then 
be treated in the same manner.

Job Tripp and Descendants. 

Job^ Tripp (Isaacs Job^, Peleg^, Johni ). 
We have no record of the birth of this Job 
Tripp, but we can approximate to its date. If it 
was his father who married Sarah Sweet in 1729, 
and after her death married a Spencer, and Job 
was the first child of this union, he was born 
probably not earlier than 1731, nor later than 
1736. He married 16 May, 1757, Hannah Eice, 
daughter of William Rice, deceased ^ We have 
no record of the time or place of his death, but 
it was prior to 1792. 

Mrs. Polly Tripp Robbins says that Job Tripp 
lived below Lackawanna, and was buried in the 
old Griffin burying ground near Bull's Head, 
between Hyde Park and Providene. A careful 
search in this ground revealed no stone with his 
name or initials upon it. 

On 8 January, 1793, John^ Tripp, administra- 
tor of Job^ Tripp, late of Providence, conveys' to 
Micajah Harding, lot No. 15, in Providence, for 
the sum of 48 pounds, 10 shillings. 

Job^ Tripp was the administrator of his father's 
estate, and this fact would go to confirm the 

^Arnold's Vital Kecoids of Rhode Island, Warwick: volume 
1, page 121. CuriiiUslv , this marriage is also recorded in the 
East Greenwich Kecurds, and the date given as 30 May, 1757.

tradition related by Mrs. Polly (Tiipp) Robbiiis 
that Job^ was the oldest living son of his father, 
Isaac^ Tripp. 

Job Tripp, administrator of Isaac ^ Tripp, con- 
veyed lot No. 12, Providence, to Isaac^ Tripp for 
365 pounds, 12 August, 1788, and recites: "I, 
Job Tripp, of Providence, administrator of my 
father, Isaac Tripp, late of Providence, de- 
ceased, etc"^ 

This recital in the above-mentioned deed fully 
confirms the memorandum carefully preserved to 
this day, v^hich I took vvrhen a youth from a con- 
versation with my great aunt, Nancy Tripp 
Vaughan. My curiosity was aroused by her 
relating the circumstances of her grandfather's 
death at the hands of savages. I then copied her 
father's family record, the only one I know to be 
in existence at this time, and I also noted down 
other family history which she related, among 
which was the statement that her father Isaac^ 
had a brother Job. 

I have as yet obtained no authoritative record 
of Job's children, but from information received 
from Mis. Polly Tripp Robbins, Hosea Phillips, 
Rhode Island vital records, and other sources, I 
give the list below, but am not sure that it ia 
complete.

Isaac® Tripp ( Job^, Isaac*, Job^, Peleg^, 

Johni) 

Was born in Warwick, Rhode Island, 27 Novem- 
ber, 1760. He came with his father, Job^ Tripp, 
to Providence, Pa., about 1771. Soon after the 
bloody massacre which occurred 3 July, 1778, in 
the Wyoming Valley, Squire Isaac* Tripp and 
his grandson, Isaac® Tripp, with t-wo other young 
men, Keys and Hocksey, were captured by the 
Indians at Providence. The old man, who was 
a Quaker, and had been friendly with the Indians, 
they painted and dismissed. The young men 
were taken through Leggett's Gap into the forests 
of Abington. Near the present village of Clark's 
Summit, Keys and Hocksey were tomahawked 
and scalped. Tradition says that when the 
bloody knives w^ere flourished around young 
Tripp's head he never winced, and on account of 
his bravery they spared his life. He was carried 
off with nmch suffeiing to Canada, where he was 
retained in captivity till after the end of the

to his old home in Pennsylvania'. 

He married Eleanor Frear, aunt of Elder Frear, 
and settled in Clifford. Susquehamia county, Pa. 
He was one of the early members of the first 
Baptist Church, of Ahington, Elder John Miller, 
pastor, and helped to form the Scott Valley Bap- 
tist Church, nearer his home*. 

His wife died in Clifford 10 May, 1816, aged 67 
years. He died 15 April, 1820, aged 60 years. 
They are buried near Clifford Coi-ners, Susque-

Lydia® Tripp, ( of Job^ ) married first a Hard- 
ing. We do not know^ his first name or anything 
of his family. We know that she survived her 
husband, and on 17 November, 1816, she was 
married by Elder John Miller to Deacon John 
Phillips, of Abington, as his second wife. At 
the time of her second marriage her residence is 
given by Elder Miller as Deer Park, N. Y. ^ She 
died 4 December, 1840. 

(10) 

Of Mary® Tripp ( of Job^ ) we know nothing. 
She may not have lived to maturity. The only 
record is that of her birth in the Rhode Island 
vital statistics for Warwick. 

(11) 

John® Tripp ( of Job^, Isaac*, Job^, Peleg^, 

John^). He was born in Middletown, R. I., 5 

September, 1766. We do not know when he 

came to Pennsylvania from Rhode Island, but

probably came with his father about 1771. He 
married Martha Philhps, daughter of Deacon 
John Phillips, 10 December, 1789. Deacon Phil- 
lips was then a resident of Pittston. 

On 6 June, 1792, John Phillips deeds^ to his 
son-in-law, John Tiipp, 100 acres of land in Pitts- 
ton "in consideration of love and good will." 
The residence of both parties was stated to be 
Pittston. 

21 August, 1793, William Donaldson deeds' to 
John Tiipp, 700 acres of land in Exeter town- 
ship, Luzerne county. Pa. On 10 November. 
1794, John deeds^ 300 acres of this land to William 
Tripp, of Exeter, who, T am convinced, was a 
brother of John Tripp, and on 18 March, 1795, 
he deeds^ the remaining 400 acres of this land to 
his father-in-law, John Phillips. 

John Tripp was the administrator of his father. 
Job Tripp's estate. 

On 17 December, 1791, he presented a petition* 
to the Orphans' Court of Luzeine county, asking 
for an order to sell his father's real estate to pay 
debts exceeding his personal property by 59£, 
13s., lOp., and the Court granted the order. The 
sureties of the administrator were John Phillips 
and Ebenezer Slocum. The residence of Job 
Tripp was stated as late of Providence. 

As administrator of Job Tripp, John Tripp, 
deeds", 8 January, 1793, lot 15 in Providence,

comprising 375 acres, with a log house, toMicajah 
Harding for 48£, 10s., and Harding promptly 
reconveys^ this land to John Tripp, in his private 
capacity. 10 May, 1794, John Tripp sells^ 210 
acres of lot 15 to John Staples for 1U0£., and the 
same day sells^ the balance of lot 15 to Stephen 
Gardner, of Providence, for 100£. This looks 
like a pretty good deal for John Tripp to sell at 
over 400 per cent, profit, but had he kept this 
375 acres of coal land in the heart of the city of 
Scranton a hundred years, or even less, it would 
have made his family millionaires. This land 
afterwards came into the family of Isaac Tripp, 
the uncle of John. Hosea Phillips, now living 
at Justus, Lackawanna county, Pa., over ninety 
years of age, who is a nephew of John Tripp, 
says that his uncle lived near Priceburg, between 
Scranton and Olyphant, and was buried in a 
cemetery which was vacated when the boulevard 
was constructed. John Tripp was a carpenter 
by trade. His children were :

William^ Tripp ( of John® ). I have not heen 
able to get any trace of this Ti'i[)p by con-pspond- 
ence with other members of John's family. If 
there was such a son, it is strange that some of 
the relatives do not remember of his existence. 
He may have died young, and so left no famil\\ 

I have no record of his death or of his leaving 
any descendants. His name appears first in the 
list of John's children published in 1901, by Mary 
Besecker Stone, in writing a history of the 
Stephen Miller family. She drew her informa- 
tion as to the Tripp connection lai-gely from the 
records of Deacon John Phillips, whose daughter, 
Martha, was John Tripp's wife.

Zacheus'7 Tripp (of John®), died in early man- 
hood. He studied for the Baptist ministry, but 
his health failed. He sailed to England, but 
growing worse returned immediately, and died 
in quarantine before reaching shore. 

(80) 

David "^ Tripp (of John® ). I have been able to 
learn little of this son of John Tripp or of his 
family. In 1838, David and his family, in com- 
pany with his sister, Mary or Polly Millard and 
her husband, having built a canal boat at Pitts- 
ton, migrated to the west. They went by canal 
to Pittsburg (using the railroad over the moun- 
tain), then by the Ohio river to Evansville, Ind. 
Their boat was thirty- eight feet long, and was 
their home from Pittston to Evansville, Ind. 
Here the two families parted and lost sight of 
each other. As strange as it may seem, the 
families kept up no correspondence, and I am 
unable to get the names of David's children. 
David died a few years after moving to Indiana. 
His wife's name was Elizabeth or Betsy. The 
oldest son was Ealph, another Zacheus, and there 
were some girls whose names could not be ascer- 
tained.

RuTH^ Tripp (of Isaac'*), married 23 Febru- 
ary, 1757, Jonathan Slocum^. She was born 21 
March, 1736. He was born in East Greenwich, 
Kent county, R. I., 1 May, 1733. They resided 
in Warwick, R. I., where he followed the trade 
of blacksmith. As early as 1771 he was in Prov- 
idence, Pa., as is shown by this record : "A lot 
surveyed to Colonel Lodwick Ojidirk in ye town- 
ship called ye Capoose Meadows, passed into the 
hands of Jonathan Slocum in 1771, on account of 
Slocum's doeing ye duty of a settler for Ojidirk. "^ 

It is believed that his family settled at Wilkes- 
Barre as early as 1774. 

On 6 November, 1775, he received a deed from 
Jonathan Fitch for lot number 15, in the second 
division of the town plot of Wilkes-Barre. He 
settled within a hundred yards of Wilkes-Barre 
fort, and there his daughter Frances was cap- 
tured by the Indians 2 November, 1778, and 
carried into captivity. On the 16th of December, 
1778, Jonathan Slocum and his father-in-law, 
Isaac Tripp, were killed by the Indians while 
they were feeding cattle from a stack in the 
meadow in sight of the fort. 

The children of Jonathan Slocum and Ruth^ 
Tripp Slocum were:

Isaac Tripp and Descendants. 

(5) 

We do not know much of the active life of 
this ancestor. His name does not appear so 
prominently in the history of Luzerne county as 
does that of his father, Isaac'*. We know that 
he was a large land owner in the early settle- 
ment of Providence, Pa., and was active in its 
material development. He owned a still house, 
and with his son Stephen built the first grist 
mill on Leggett's creek. He must have been 
one of the wealthiest men in the valley, judging 
from the taxes assessed against his property. In 
1796 there were 90 taxables in Providence town- 
ship, which extended from Rix's Gap to Pittston, 
and Isaac Tripp's tax was $15.89, while the next 
largest tax was $4.69i. 

We do not know exactly when this Isaac 
settled in the valley, but we can tell very closely 
when his family was brought there from the 
family record which fortunately notes the birth 
place of each child. This tells us that the family 
came to Providence between 1784, and 1787. It 
is quite likely that Isaac^ was there with his 
father Isaac* prior to the former date. 

Isaac ^ Tripp was born at East Greenwich, R. I., 
27 July, 1743. Martha Wall, his wife, was born 
at East Greenwich, R. I., 29 January, 1745.

Wm. Tripp and Descendants. 

(194) 

William® Tripp ( of Isaac^) was born in East 
Greenwich, R. I., 11 July, 1767. He sold his land 
in Luzerne county and moved to Ohio, settling 
near Steuben ville in 1824. He was killed by an 
accident in 1836. A yoke of oxen which he was 
driving ran away and he was thrown under the 
wheels, causing injuries which proved fatal. He 
was twice married ; the name of the second wife 
I have not been able to ascertain. The first wife 
was Catherine Holbert, and by her he had three 
children. 

204. Albert'. 

205. Lovina''. 

206. William '^ Henry Augustus. 

By his second wife he had also three children. 
SOr. Jacob'. 

208. Isaac'. 

209. Catherine'. 

We have no account of Albert Tripp, nor of the 
children by second wife, though much effort 
has been made to get trace of them. 

( 205 ) 

Lovina' Tripp (of William®), married Joseph 
W. Wright of Hocking county, Ohio, in 1828. 
They had ten children, viz : Albert, Lucinda, 

45 



Presley, Catherine, Hiram, Mary, Robert, Bar- 
bara, Irvin and Emma. 

(206) 

William'7 Henry Augustus Tripp (of Will- 
iam^ ) was born 25 June, 1802, near Marietta, 
Washington county, Ohio. His grandmother 
Holbert brought him to Athens county, Ohio, 
thence to Nelsonville, and from there to Logan, 
Hocking county, Ohio, where he married Nancy 
A. Roby, who was born 14 May, 1805, in Harrison 
county, Virginia. She died 9 November, 1894. 
They lived in Hocking county about two years, 
then moved to Haydensville, Athens county, 
Ohio. In 1835, they moved to Jackson county, 
Ohio. He joined the United Brethren Church, in 
1830, and was ordained as a minister of that 
denomination in 1845. He worked hard on his 
farm and at the carpenters trade during the week 
and preached Saturday nights and Sundays with- 
out charge for his services. Of his nine sons, 
seven were in the Union army at the same time. 
The father was a Whig, and the sons all belonged 
to the Republican party, in fact it would be 
difficult to find a Democrat in all the Tripp 
family of this branch, at least. He died 20 Janu- 
ary, 1849. He had a family of fourteen children 
as follows :

Amasa Tripp & Descendants. 

Amasa® Tripp ( of Isaac^ ) was born in East 
Greenwich, R. I., 8 April, 1Y74. His father, in 
his migration from R. I., stopped with his family 
some years at Rhinebeck, N. Y., at least the 
years from 1Y78 to 1784, as we learn from the 
family record which gives the birth of three of 
his children at the latter place. 

His father, who was a very large land owner 
in the Township of Providence, now city of 
Scranton, divided his land among his sons, but 
Amasa sold his portion and moved to the frontier 
of civilization at that time, and located at Leroy, 
Genesee county, N. Y. The land that he sold 
for a trifling sum would now bring a fortune, as 
it was some of the best coal land in the Lacka- 
wanna Valley. He married Jerusha Dolph, of 
Providence, Pa. 

The writer has had great difficulty in learning 
the little he has gathered concerning this branch 
of the Tripp family. Though Amasa Tripp was 
my father's uncle, and my father has visited in 
his ninety-one years of life many branches of his 
mother's family, going three times to the Pacific 
coast within the last fifteen years, yet he had 
almost no acquaintance with this family, and only 
an indistinct recollection of the names of some of 
Amasa's children. Many letters of inquiry still 
remain imanswered, and it was late in the pro- 
gress of this work before the little I now record 

60 



was elicited. I regret that no better and fuller 
account can at this time be furnished for the 
benefit of all who are interested in obtaining a 
full and correct family record. The following is 
probably a correct list of Amasa's children, but 
as birth dates are not given, it is not certain that 
the order is that of their ages : 

301. Henry'7. 

303. HOLDEN^. 
303. ISAAC'7. 

304. Chandler'7 

305. Horace^. 

306. Elizabeth'7. 

307. Caroline'7. 

308. Jerusha'7. 

309. Rachel^ 

(301) 

Henry "7 Tripp ( of Amasa® ) was born in Penn- 
sylvania 4 March, 1799, before his father removed 
to New York State. He married Lydia Guthrie, 
who died 25 March, 1875. 

He went as a youth to Leroy, N. Y., where he 
resided until he was twenty-five years of age, 
when he selected a farm on Beech Ridge, Pendle- 
ton, Niagara county, N. Y., which he occupied 
until his death, which occurred 24 April, 1891, in 
his 93rd year. He was a man of strong character, 
with many excellent qualities of mind and heart. 

He was early inured to toil, and among the 
pleasant reminiscences of his boyhood was his 
service as a teamster when only 14 years of age, 

6i 



in furnishing the soldiers with suppHes in the 
war of 1812. His wife preceded him to the grave 
about 16 years, and for the last 8 years of his life 
he was confined to his bed by rheumatism from 
which he had suffered much in previous years. 
He left to survive him three sons and three daugh- 
ters, Daniel, Henry, Chandler, Mrs Lydia Kinne, 
Mrs. Jerusha A. Harper, Mrs. Caroline Redfield. 
He was interred in Bear Ridge Cemetery. 

His children were as follows : 

310. Amasa^, born 29 September, 1826, died 
17 November, 1892.

Stephen^ Tripp was a prominent citizen of 
Providence, Pa. He was interested with his 
father in erecting the first mill on Leggetts

respectable industry of making whiskey. His 
house was the first to be opened as a place of 
public entertainment in the early settlement of 
Providence. 

His farms, comprising lot 33, and parts of lots 
19, 20 and 23, included some of the most valuable 
portions of the present city of Scranton. ^ 

In 1813 the first town meeting was held at the 
house of Stephen Tripp 3. Providence then in- 
cluded the territory embraced in Lackawanna, 
Covington, Jefferson, Blakely, Greenfield, Scott, 
and Scranton. This large territory polled 82 

votes.

488. Virginia®, born 19 March, 1877, died 2

George® B. Tripp (of William^ H. H.), mar- 
ried 2 September, 1896, Katherine Hibbard. She 
was born in Pittsburg, Pa. 

Mr. Tripp learned the machinist trade at the 
Finch shops in Scranton. He then studied elec- 
trical engineering, and was employed for a time 
at the Suburban Electric Light Plant on Wash- 
ington avenue, Scranton. He became assistant 
superintendent of the Cleveland, Ohio, Electric 
Light Co., where he remained until he received 
the appointment of superintendent of the Elec- 
tric Light Co. of Colorado Springs, which posi- 
tion he now holds. It was while he was in 
Cleveland, Ohio, that his younger brother, 
Howard, who held a subordinate position in the 
same company, was accidentally drowned while 
bathing on 4 July, 1900. George B. Tripp and 
Katherine have one child: 

489. George lo b. Tripp, Jr., born 1 May, 
1901.

Ira'7 Tripp (of Isaac®), married 20 February, 

89 



1838, Rosanna Shoemaker, daughter of Jacob I. 
Shoemaker, of Wyommg, Pa. She was born 
26 September, 1817, and died 29 April, 1899. Ira 
Tripp died 3 August, 1891. Like most of the 
Tripp family for many generations, he was a 
farmer by occupation. He inherited one of the 
best farms in the Lackawanna valley, rich in 
fertility as to the surface, and vastly more rich 
by reason of the veins of "black diamonds," or 
anthracite coal, which underlie the whole extent 
of his possessions. He was the last of his name 
to retain a portion of the land which his grand- 
father and great-grandfather had acquired when 
the valley was first settled by the hardy and 
venturesome pioneers from the Eastern states. 
He left no son to survive him, and the old Tripp 
home, which for generations had been the centre 
of boundless hospitality and good cheer, has now 
passed into the hands of strangers. 

Ira Tripp for many years was a conspicuous 
figure in the history of Luzerne and Lackawanna 
counties. His extremely heavy and long white 
beard, in later life, was a feature that attracted 
attention wherever he appeared. His jovial dis- 
position and hearty manner made him hosts of 
friends in all directions, and probably no man in 
Lackawanna county had more or stronger friends. 
In early life he was appointed an aide-de-camp on 
the staff of Gov. Pollock, with the rank of Lieut. 
Colonel, which gave him his military title of 
Colonel. In 1861 he enlisted as a private in the 
Eighth Pennsylvania Regiment, and served nine 
months as hospital steward. He was captured 
by the enemy, but his good nature and easy 

90 




^0^^^ qlX-^^^A> 



I 



manner ensured him kind treatment and an fail y 
exchange. He died 3 August, 1801, leaving a 
large estate to his widow and two grandchildren, 
children of his deceased son Leander. 

The following is a record of his family: 

490. Isaac® C, born 28 March, 1839, died 
11 October, 1882. 

491. LeanderS S., born 27 February, 1841, 
died 22 June, 1876. 

493. William® R., born 20 January, 184G, 
died 12 September, 1847. 

493. Gertrude®, born 18 January, 1848, died 
3 May, 1874. 

(491) 

Leander® S. Tripp (of Ira'^), married Jennie 
Pierce, daughter of William Pierce, of Provi- 
dence, Pa. 

Their children were: 

494. Walter® Sherman, born 6 February,

498. IraIO Tripp, born 27 July, 1896. 

499. John 10 Franklyn, born 24 July, 1901. 

(493) 

Gertrude s Tripp (of Ira"^) born 18 January, 
1848, died 3 May, 1874, unmarried. She was 
small in stature, bright and vivacious in man- 
ner, and overflowing with good nature and 
generous impulses. She was the pet of the 
household and loved and admired by a wide cir- 
cle of acquaintances. Her death, occurring in 
the flush of young womanhood, surrounded by 
all the attractions and luxuries that wealth and 
affection could bestow, cast a gloom, not only 
over the immediate family and relatives, but 
wherever she was known. The name of Gertie 
Tripp brings back, after nearly thirty years, the 
recollection of the bright, attractive image of the 
cousin who always had a smile and pleasant 
word of greeting for all without regard to wealth 
or position, whom no flattery or attention could 
spoil, but who remained the kind, generous and 
lovable girl until the last sad day when the angel 
of death bore her spirit away to her heavenly 
home above.

Isaac'' Tripp (of Isaac®), married (1) 17 Feb- 
ruary, 1840, by Kev. E. H. Snowden, Margaret 
Shoemaker, daughter of Jacob Shoemaker, of 
Wyoming, Pa. She was born 30 May, 1822, and 
died 23 November, 1856. Married (2) 28 Decem- 
ber, 1861, by Rev, William Frear, Hannah 
Rogers, who was born 16 February, 1834. 

Mr. Tripp, like most of his family, was a 
farmer by occupation. He settled in Kingston, 
Pa., in 1854, on the place late the property of 
Frank Helme. In 1859 he purchased the "Ab- 
bott farm" at Forty Fort, Pa., comprising 138 
acres. This farm, under Mr. Tripp's skillful 
management, became one of the most produc- 
tive ones in the far-famed Wyoming Valley. 
For some years tobacco was a staple crop, and 
extensive sheds were built for the curing and 
preparing of the product for market. He was a 
lover of fine cattle, and was quite an extensive 
dairyman. At one time he raised a cow that was 
the wonder of the community for size. It 
weighed over 2,000 pounds. Though this farm 
was rich and productive in an agricultural point 

93 



of view, its fertility was but a small element of 
its value. The settlement of old Kingston has 
grown beyond its original bounds and now has 
extended past Dorranceton to Forty Fort, bring- 
ing the Tripp farm into market for building pur- 
poses. But the greatest value lies under the 
surface in the shape of the best veins of anthra- 
cite coal to be found in the coal region. These 
are now under lease to a mining company, and 
bring a revenue that would have astonished 
the early Connecticut settlers, who had no com- 
prehension of the underground wealth when 
they fought Indians and white men for the pos- 
session of this beautiful valley.

Martha® Tripp (of Isaac^), maniiHl Klisha 
Miller. We have some knowledge of the an<!eH- 
try of this relative. His grandfather, Alexander 
Miller, came from Ireland when eleven years of 
age, but was raised as a Yankee in Windham 
County, Conn. He became a Presbyterian 
clergyman, and later a Congregationalist. He 
was an eminent scholar and dignified i)ivacher. 
Elisha's father was also named Alexander, a 
man of more than ordinary talents, with refined 
manners and a good education. He was of the 
Universalist faith. His home was in the town 
of Voluntown, Windham County, Coim. He 
married Mercy Hall, who was raised in the same 
neighborhood. She was a Baptist in religious 
belief, and a member- of a church some miles dis- 
tant in Rhode Island. 

When Elisha was about four years of age his 
father removed to Plainfield, Conn., in the same 
county. He had a family of six children, five 
boys and one girl. I have learned tlie names of 
only three of the children. John, the oldest of 
the family, became an eminent Baptist preacher, 
the pioneer minister in the northern part of 
Luzerne County, Pa., settling in Abington in 
February, 1802, when the county was almost a 
wilderness. He preached till his death, whicii 
occurred 19 February, 1857. Another son was 
Anthony Miller, who settled in Michigan, near 
Lake Huron. Ehsha Miller was born 30 August, 
1785, and died 2 August, 1842. He settled in 
Genessee County, N. Y., and was a substantial 

103 



farmer, residing near Byron Center, N. Y. He 
married Martha Tripp 3 December, 1809. She 
was born 6 September, 1781, and died 21 De-

I ID 



Henry^ Dow Tripp. 

(6) 

The family of Tripps in Luzerne and Lacka- 
wanna counties have lost all trace of this relative 
and his descendants, if any there were. He 
probably left the valley prior to 1800. For some 
reason he had made himself obnoxious to the 
Connecticut Company, which controlled the set- 
tlement at Wyoming. In the possession of the 
Wyoming Historical and Geological Society at 
Wilkes-Barre is a manuscript copy of some of the 
minutes and proceedings of the Connecticut Sus- 
quehanna Company. On page 24: of this coi)y 
appears this resolution: "That Dow Trij)]) be 
excluded from the number of said forty, and any 
right in the Township." 

The Recorder's office at Wilkes-Barre contains 
the record of a deed dated 6 September, 17i»4, 
from Isaac D. Tripp, of New York City, to Henry 
D. Tripp, of the same place, and recites the pay- 
ment of 250 pounds by "my father, Henry Dow 
Tripp." This would indicate tbat father and son 
were then residents of New York City. The land 
conveyed was lot 15 at Providence. 

Ill 



NOTE I. 

On page 10 we have noticed the fact that a Sam- 
uel Tripp, son of Isaac, of Exeter, lived in Rhode 
Island, who may have been a brother of Isaac^, 
of Providence, Pa. This Samuel Tripp married 
Catherine Jenckes, daughter of Benjamin Jenckes. 

Their children were : 

Sarah, born at Tiverton, R. I., 8 August, 1Y60. 

Abigail, born at Warwick, R. I., 10 July, 1762. 

Ruth, born at Warwick, R. I., 16 April, 1764. 

Martha, born at E. Greenwich, 21 March, 
1766, died 1 April, 1766. 

Benjamin Jenckes, born at E, Greenwich, 19 
June, 1768, died 27 February, 1769. 

Catherine, born at E. Greenwich, 25 August, 

1772. 

Catherine Jenckes was born 6 September, 1741, 
and died 30 July, 1793. Samuel Tripp, her hus- 
band, died 10 June, 1798. 

The prevalence of similar names in the two 
families adds strength to the o inion that Samuel 
and Isaac^ were brothers. I surmise that Ruth, 
daughter of Samuel, was named for her Aunt 
Ruth, who married Jonathan Slocum ; Martha, 
daughter of Samuel, named for her aunt Martha, 
wife of Isaac^; Catherine (the writer's grand- 
mother), daughter of Isaac^, named for her aunt 
Catherine, wife of Samuel. This conjecture may 
be false, but it seems quite plausable.

writer has seen one of the long lost '* Westmore- 
land Records," and has been permitted to copy
