The three numerals over a sketch of an individual are ex-j 
plained as follows: 

The first figure indicates the person's number. The Roman 
characters show in what generation he is, and the figure to the 
right is the number of the jjarent. Thus, on page (12), 3 II 1 
Rev. Nathaniel Wheatleigh's number is 3; he is of the second 
generation; and son of No. 1 — John Wheatleigh. So one may^ 
start with the present generation and trace the line back to the 
first or any generation by the numbers. 




INTRODUCTION. 



The records embraced in tliis history do not assnine to be a 
full f^fcuealogy of the Wheatley family. They are, however, the 
result of more than twenty years of dilipfeut and perseveriu*^ 
efforts to make them correct and reliable. AVhere incom])lete, 
the fault is larpfely due to neglect of members of the branch 
slighted, to answer repeated requests for sketches and records. 

The gathering' of material has been a task requiring gi'eat 
patience and much labor, correspondence and aiTanging of facts 
being largely done after the hour most peop'e were abed, such 
being the only leisiu-e hours, of the busy years of a ^diysiciaTi's 
life. 

A few of the early records were collected by Luther Wheat- 
ley (b. 1783 d. 185!)). These were added to by Charlotte 
Wheatley Bowman (1824- 1882) and earned forward by Edith 
AVheatley AVilcox (1849-1881) whom I assisted, and I have 
l)rought forward her untinished task. 

A large amount of history was gleaned with the aid of of- 
ficers of the New England Historic and Genealogical Society in 
Boston. The Genealogies published, of the AVingate, Boliins. 
Tenney, Perry and Loveland families have lieen searched for 
data, some portions having been taken from them bodily. 

And I am under great obligations to Col. F. M. Kimball of 
Topeka, Kan., Dr. John R. Ham of Dover, N. H., Flora Wheat- 
ley Foss of Hardwick, Vt, and Col. Aiusworth of the Pension 
Bureau at "Washington, D. C, while the labors of Josei)hine A. 
Peavey of Farmington, N. H., in gathering and preparing the 
matei-ial for the press, has made possible the publication, at this 
time. 

The personal examiuaticju of cliiircii, town and probate re- 
cords of several states has secured the cojinecting links of the 
present generation with theii" ancestors in this and the oM 
country.

THE WHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 



There is a moral and philosopliical respect for our ancestors, 
which elevates the character and inspires the' heart. The pride 
of ancestry is the foundation of the pride of character, without 
which no man can be great. 

Our family is eminently a domestic race; loving their homes 
and firesides; shunning notoriety; not aspiring to political or 
other jmblic favors; but faithful, honest, industrious and econ- 
omical. The rogue's gallery or the police rej^orts are the last 
places to look for a Wheatley. Rather disposed to keep their 
own counsel; and somewhat stubborn when opposed. 

The family has an honorable record in all our country's 
wars, from the early colonial times. All four of Capt. John 
Wheatley's sons served in the Revolutionary army. The Revo- 
lutionary Rolls, State papers of several states, and the pension 
and war departments at Washington, have aided in fiu-nishing 
valuable history. 

It seems that the Wheatleighs were Protestants early in 
the 17th century. In the fall of 1626, Charles I of England 
sent a naval force to Dieppe for the use of Lewis, King of France, 
against the Huguenots at La Rochelle. The sailors discovered 
his purpose and objected. They drew vip a remonstrance to 
Pennington, their commander, and signing all their names in a 
cii'cle lest he should discover the ring-leaders, they laid it under 
his prayer book. 

This we believe to be the first record of a "Round Robin." 
In this circle we find the name of A. Wheatleigh, from Wells, 
Somerset, England. Admiral Pennington declared "that he 
would rather be hanged in England for disobedience, than fight 
against his brother Protestants on the continent." And the 
whole squadron sailed for home. But La Rochelle, the Hugue- 
nots headquarters, fell into the hands of the French in 1628, and 
they were scattered, many coming to Maryland, Virginia and 
South Carolina. In these settlements were several Wheat- 
leighs. Many of their descendants still Hve in these localities. 
Three Wheatleys are known to have come to New England. 
Their posterity have scattered over these states, and spread to 
New York and the West. 



THE WHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 




James "NVbeatleigh settled at Wetliers- 
field, Coun., iu 1088, Capt. Jobu Wheat- 
ley or Wlieatleigh settled in Norwich, 
Conn., in 1782, and merchant John Wheat- 
ley lived in Boston, Mass., from 1745 to 
1774. James "NVbeatleigh assisted in 
drawing up a constitution for the govern- 
ment of Connecticut Colony, which was 
adoj^ted in January, 1(589. Among his 
papers we find the coat of arms here 
given. 

Whether they are to be legitimately borne l)y the descen- 
dents of John Wheatley may be problematical. 

This is not described in Burke's General Armory, although 
there are eight separate Wheatley arms and borne by ten differ- 
ent families, recorded in this Encyclopedia of Heraldry. The 
first one was granted by Edward III to John Wheatley Esq., of 
Castle-Bromwich, Co. Leicester, in 1856. About fifty years later 
his son William Wheatley Esq. gained additional favors from 
King Henry IV. William Wheatley Esq. left no son to bear 
the name, so the arms were preserved to his daughter Thomas- 
ine Wheatley, and she married John Dannot. 

Records of coats of ai-ms of some other families mentionsd 
in this history can be found in the appendix. In Burke's Gen- 
eral Ai-mory there are records of families of the following names. 
Some have one or two, Avhile others have several. The Wood 
family has one hundi-ed and two records. They are : Abbott 
Allen, Archer, Austin, Bach, Barker, Barnes, Bell, Bowman, 
Brown, Carpenter, Clark, Craig, French, Foss, Hall, Hastings, 
Hodge, Hutchinson, Loveland, Paine, Pellet, Shepherd, Skinner, 
Waterman, Welch, Wheeler, White, Wilcox, Wingate and Wood. 

Our branch being dii-ectly interested only in those of Sir 
Nathaniel Wheatley (11) of Frome, Somersetshire; and of Will- 
iam Wheatley Esq., (77) of Echingfield, Co. Sussex.

ENGLISH GENEALOGY. 

Correspomleuce with Hou. Henry "White, who is eliarpfe d' 
affaires at the U. S. Legation iu Loiidou, resulted iu arrauge- 
nieuts with Mr. A. B. Stevens of Trafalgar Scjuare, London, to 
search Enghsh records for the early history of the Wheatley family. 

Mr. Stevens seems to have done the work faithfully, and 
traces the connection between the English and American branches 
of the family. 

During the last century this once populous "NVheatley fam- 
ily of yeomen, seafaring and professional men have nearly dis- 
appeared from England, either having moved to America or died 
out. It is a inatter of pride to the name, that the family has 
retained its identity so long. 

In Mr. Stevens' report of his investigation is much that does 
not directly interest this branch of the Wheatley family, but it 
may serve to fix the ancestry of many "Wheatleys, who came to 
America at earlier or later dates than Captain John, father of 
oiu" branch. Mr. Stevens worked back from John Wheatleigh, 
a Boston merchant who settled there in 174:5 but returned to 
England in the spring of 1774. 

Iu volume I of the English "Genealogist" and "Somerset, 
Berkshire and other visitations," is to be found the pedigree of 
the Wheatleys springing from John and Thomas who appear to 
have been brothers. Many of the early records here given were 
taken from a book in the possession of Sir Harold "Wheatley, who 
lived in County Bedford and died in 1(577 about 8t) years of age. 
Later dates have been found in church records and probate 
registry of the different counties and in files of wills at Somer- 
set House and Doctors Commons. 

The search of admiralt}' records gives names and some dates 
of those who served in the navy, but the English adjniralty 
records are very indefinite and incomplete. Therefore the 
identity of iudiv- "luals who thus served is only proved by parish 
records and the coincidence of names and periods. 



10 THE WHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 



Where there was room for a doubt about the identity of 
two or more records of the same individual, the doubtful items 
have been omitted. 

The first trace of Wheatle3^s we have been able to find was 
in 1356, when Sir John Wheatley lived at Cast! e-Bromwich, Lei- 
cestershire, England. But at present we have been able to 
trace the genealogical chain unbroken only back to the brothers 
John and Thomas who came to the front after the campaigns 
of Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset, in Scotland and France 
in 1544-45. John served as captain and Thomas as a lieutenant. 
They obtained estates in 1547 at Frome and near Wells, not 
far from the Mendip Hills in Somersetshire. 

In the i:)robate registry at Wells are filed the wills of John 
Wheatleigh (March 24, 1594) and his widow, Mary Wheatleigh, 
(April 20, 1595) which are as follows, viz:

in 1727. But nothing can be learned from the records, although 
tradition claims that he died in the service about 1781. His

family remained iu Dublin. John Whentley, his only son, en- 
tered Trinity College, Dublin, but left before the end of the first 
year, and was apprenticed to a shipmaster named Cliarles Gary. 
His mother had hoped to tit him to till a ])osition in the navy. 

Cai)t. Gary sold his indenture to a farmer near Norwidi, 
Gonn , 1782.

Thonuis Wheatley was evidently a brother of John "NVheat- 
leigh, whose genealogy we have traced down to (^apt. John 
AVheatley, the father of our branch of the family in America. I 
do not give wills, etc., in this line that Mr. Stevens furnished, 
but will preserve the line of descent, hoping it may be of some 
service to other l)ranches of the famil}'. 

In Burke's visitations of 1(590 is traced the A\'heatley pedi- 
i^ree for five generations. In 1547 Thomas Wheatley owned 
Balwoodston, AVells, Somei-setshire. This estate evidently 
l)assed into the j^ossession of John about 1572, and Thomas 
moved to Sonning in Berkshire. He was father of nine chil-

Captain John Wheatley. 



Father of the New England Branch of the Wheat= 
ley Family in America. 



John Wheatley was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1718; died 
in Lebanon, N. H., July 30, 1786. He and his widow were 
buried in an early selected burying ground, on a hill southeast 
of the i^resent village of West Lebanon, N. H. A Bible given 
him by his mother in 1732 — at which time he was 14 years of 
age — is now in existence. His father was a surgeon in the 
British navy, where he died in 1731. His mother and a younger 
sister resided in Dublin, where he was kept in school until 14 
years old, when, as his mother intended him for the navy, he 
was bound to the commander of a vessel for the term of seven 
years, thus fitting him to be a mariner. The commander agTeed 
to take him to Dublin to see his mother once each year. 

They sailed directly to America, landing at New London or 
Norwich, Conn. The captain perfidiously sold his indentures to 
a farmer in that vicinitv, with whom John was bound to remain 
until he attained his majority. Here, at first, he suffered much 
hardship, not being accustomed to physical labor. However, it 
is beheved that he remained with this farmer until the expira- 
tion of the indentui'e, and that he received as kind treatment as 
could be expected. It is related that on sending him to school 
the teacher returned word that he could not instruct a pupil so 
advanced. 



THE WHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 21 

John soon began teaching school himself, and followed the 
sea during intervals between terms. He intended saihng to 
England to visit his relatives, but never found it convenient, 
Finally business associations and family ties completely weaned 
him from his old home. In 1742 he married Submit Peck Cooke, 
widow of Aai'on Cooke, daughter of Benjamin Peck, a wealthy 
resident of Franklin, Conn. Her brother, Capt. Bela Peck, was 
father of Harriet Peck "Williams, who gave the Peck Memorial 
Library to Norwich, Conn. Judge A. Huntington said of Capt. 
John "Wheatley: "He was of plain manners and of incorrupt- 
ible integrity. His few words w-ere always those of good sense 
and truth. The weight of his influence was given to the best 
interests of society. He was an able and courageoous soldier. " He 
commanded a company in the French war during the campaign 
at the North in 1759, when Ticonderoga, Crown Point and other 
forts in that vicinity were captured by the English. 

A powder horn, curiously wrought, presented to him by an 
Indian chief, is now among the family relics. This horn is 
seventeen inches long and ten inches in circumference at the 
largest point. Engi-aved around the lower end of it are the 
words, "Capt. John Wheatley, Crown Point, October ye 8d, 
1759," in well formed letters surrounded V)y an ornamental bor- 
der. Immediately above this is represented New York bay> 
with Hudson river emi^tying into it, with its course wind- 
ing around nearly the whole length of the horn. East 
of the mouth of the Hudson river, and between it and Long 
Island and the Sound, stands the city of New York, finely exe- 
cuted, and embracing about forty houses with several church 
spires rising from their midst, some surmounted with the figure 
of a cock and others with a cross. Upon the west of the river, 
a little lower down, stands another city, smaller yet equally well 
built, marked "Amboy." South of New York city is marked 
"Rhode Island," now known as Staten Island. Along the Hud- 
son are scattered farm houses until a collection is designated as 
"Greenbush." Near the mouth of the Mohawk we find the city 
of Albany, constructed like that of New York. On the right 
liaiik of the Mohawk are two l)uildings marked "H. M." — half 



22 THE WHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 

moon. A little further north is a fort marked "Stillwater," 
where his son Luther died eighteen years later, after being 
wounded in the battle of Bemis Heights. On a small stream 
tributary to the Hudson from the west, stands Fort Saratoga; 
north of this is a fort marked "F. E." — Fort Edward. Directly 
west is seen Lake Geoige, containing many small islands and a 
blooj) under full sail. Lake Chamj^lain is but partly shown, 
merely enough to designate the situation of two forts; one 
marked '-Crown Point" and the other "Ticonderoga." South of 
Crown Point is a large fort unnamed, probably meant for Fort 
Ann. We turn to the Mohawk valley and find first the city of 
Schenectady, containing some fifteen houses. Upon the opj)osite 
bank, a little to the west, stands Fort Johnson, while opposite 
this is Fort Hunter. Forts Edward and Crown Point have the 
English fiag spread to the breeze, and within the walls we have 
a birds-eye view of the barracks for the soldiers, houses, and all 
the internal defences of such a place. Upon the upper part of 
the horn is an animal represented with the head of a unicorn 
and the body of a lion, with one hind leg chained to the collar 
about its neck. This was probably taken from the family coat- 
of-arms. The letters "J. W.," tastefully wrought in scrolls, oc- 
cupy the rest of this curious relic of fine Indian work. 

During the French war Spain had become an ally of France, 
and in 1761 an English force of ten thousand men was sent to 
cai^ture Havana, Cuba. A Spanish force of twenty-seven thou- 
sand soldiers and a large squadron in the harbor withstood the 
attack. 

From military orders and state papers of Massachusetts and 
Connecticut we find that Capt. John Wheatley, with a company 
of marines from Connecticut, joined the expedition against 
Havana, commanded by Gen. Phineas Lpnan, with Lieutenant- 
Colonel Israel Putnam of Danvers, Mass., in charge of marines 
from Connecticut. He was Capt. Wheatley 's immediate superior 
officer. Before the expedition returned Capt. Wheatley became 
pa;)Tmaster of the Colonial trooj^s. His family, except John 
Wheatley 2d, who accomi^anied him to Cuba, lived in Boston 
during their absence, (from 1760 to 1762). 



THE WHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 23 

The troops fi-oiu Massacliusetts, Connecticut, New York and 
New Jersey, to the number of twenty-three hvincb'ed, sailed iVom 
New York alxiiit the middle of ^lay in foiu'teen trans])()rts. 
They joined the English forces before Havana July 20, hikI 
entered into the thick of the tight, which resulted in the fall of 
the city August 14, 17(52. But disease had worked greater 
havoc than Spanish bullets, and there were scarcely tifty Colon- 
ial troops left. All came back on one ship. The prize money 
resulting fi-om the capture, and di\-ided among the soldiers and 
sailors, amounted to over $7,()()(),0()(). Capt. "NVheatley cb-ew 
$1185.24. Some of the English officers pocketed over $()()(>,(><•<> 
apiece. 

His family lived in Boston, Mass., and Norwich, Conn., until 
after the close of the French wai*, 17(53, when in the spiing 
of 17(!o they moved, except Mary and John "NVheatley 2d, to 
Lebanon, N. H. On this journey he cut a hickory cane, which 
has been preserved, headed and marked "L. W.," and remains in 
the possession of the descendants of Luther "Wheatley. 

Captain "Wheatley was the first man to fix his habitation 
amidst the lofty pines on the plains where since has risen the 
])leasant and fiouinshing ^-illage of Lebanon Centre. He was 
moderator of the tu-st town meeting held there, Sept. 12, 17G5; 
the first town clerk, which office he held for nearly twenty yeju's; 
the tii-st civil magistrate, the first schoolmaster, of whom many 
anecdotes are told showing his fertile originality in developing 
the best qualities of his pui)i]s; the first representative of 
Lebanon in the New Hampshire Legislature, and the first and 
only rejiresentative of Lebanon in the Vennont Legislatiu-e, at 
the time the sixteen border towns gave allegiance to Vermont. 
He was clerk ofrt company of proprietors of Lebanon in 17(55; 
and in 178(5 drew up a petition to the New Hamjjshire Legisla- 
ture, asking for a new charter to replace their first one, that had 
been jmrtially destroj-ed by mice. He acted as diainnan ot the 
legislative committee on boundaries, October 3, 17()H; was nj)- 
pointed justice of the peace for (irafton county, Se])tember 5, 
1774, and reappointed A])ril M, 177'.>, and October'). 178."). He 



24 THE WHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 

served as a member of the Vermont Legislature in 1777, but 
withdi-ew October 22, 1778. At a convention of committees 
from the several towns on the grants east of the Connecticut 
river, held June 24, 1778, John Wheatley was chairman of a 
committee selected to receive and adjust claims for services done 
in preparing- and comijleting the union with the State of Ver- 
mont. His name was signed to several documents relative to the 
dispute concerning the jurisdiction over the New Hampshire 
grants east of the Connecticut river, during the year 1782. A 
petition was drawn uj) and circulated by Capt. John Wheatlej', 
dated June 10, 1782, in regard to the establishing of a boundary 
between Lebanon and Enfield. 

In a Thanksgiving sermon preached by Rev. Phineas Cooke, 
the pastor of Lebanon Congregational Church, November 30? 
1850, giving a civil and ecclesiastical history of the town, he 
says: "Were I to single out a man to whom this town, in its 
early days, was especially indebted for his exertions in its behalf, 
I would name John Wheatley, Esq." 

He did not serve in the revolutionary army, but sent his 
four sons. Two, John and Luther, were killed fighting for the 
indejiendence of theii' country. He died at Lebanon, N. H., in 
1786, of a violent fever, being G7 years of age. His widow 
survived him several years. 

To all his acknowledged qualifications for public or private 
life was added pieij and such religious gifts as made him a suit- 
able jjerson to lead in the meetings of the church in the absence 
of the minister. True to a prominent Wheatley characteristic, 
he put sj^irit, energy and perseverance into every enterprise 
with which he was connected.

In tbe American Encyclopoedia is the followin<]f article: 
"Pbillis AVbeatley, a negro poetess, born in Africa in 1755, died 
in Boston, Mass., December 5, 1794. She was brought to Bos- 
ton in 17(51, and bought by Mrs. John Wheatley, who, noting 
remarkable exhibitions of intellectual powers and a thirst for 
books in her servant, set to work to educate her. At the age of 
1!) Miss Phillis visited England, where she jjublished a work 
under the following title: 'Poems on Various Subjects, Be!ig- 
ious and Moral, by Phillis "NVheatley, negro servant of Mrs. 
John AVheatley of Boston, New England.' She received marked 
notice from Gen. George Washington for poems she ^^Tote of 
many of his acts in public life." 

There seems to be no doubt that Miss Phillis' mistress was 
the wife of Capt. John AVheatley.

in the Old Granery Graveyard, Boston. On his headstone is the 
following: "Here lies ye body of John Lothrop, aged about 40 
years. Died April ye 9th, 177()." He gi-aduated from Prince- 
ton College in 17(j8, and was pastor of tlie Second, or Old North 
Church, Boston, Mass., from 17(58 until his death. Mary, liis 
widow, died two years later in Norwich, Conn., without olT- 
sj)ring. He was probably an actor in the ilrama that b-d to

Paul Revere's ride. After Caj^tain Wheatley's family moved to 
New Hamj^shire, Pliillis, the negress whom Mrs. Wheatley had 
l^urchased and began to educate, lived in the Lothrop family. 
This gave the dusky poetess the advantages of higher education, 
under the eye of a college graduate. ,

Lieut. John Wheatley accomjDanied his father on the expe- 
dition against Havana, Cuba, in 1702, and drew about ($17.50) 
seventeen and a half dollars of prize money. In 1766 he mar- 
ried Jane Cooke of Bozrah, Conn., at which place they lived for 
a while. Two years later they were living at a place called 
"Coase," and in 1770 were living east of the Green at Norwich. 
By old issues of the Packet we find he had a boot and shoe shop 
near the Packet oflfice, where he made the best of goods, "good 
work and quick dispatch being the cardinal points of his com- 
pass." The next year he moved into the Peck Tavern, across 
the Green. In the big elm, known as the "Liberty Tree," front 
of the tavern, was arranged a bower among the branches, sup- 
plied with tables and seats for dinner parties and speech-making 
to the people on the Green. This was connected with an upper 
window of the tavern by a plank walk. "Here Landlord Wheat- 
ley entertained General Washington at dinner when en route to 
Boston, thus winning a point over his rival, Joseph Peck, who 
kept the Lothroj) Inn across the Green." 

June 20, 1776, he was commissioned second lieutenant of 
Capt. Joshua Huntington's company, in Col. Samuel Selden's 
Connecticut regiment. He was wounded and taken prisoner 
(reported "killed or taken") in a battle with the British troops 
at Harlem Heights, N. Y., September 15, 1776, and died a few 
days later. 

His estate was settled by his widow Jane and brother An- 
drew, the tavern being run with the assistance of Deodat Little. 
According to the Norwich Packet they offered also "brown sugar 
and molasses for sale." His widow and daughter Lucinda 
moved to Lebanon, N. H. Mrs. Wheatley married a Mr. Bliss. 
Colonel Bhss, son-in-law of General Taylor, on whose staff he 
served during the Mexican war, was their grandson.

record: "With men who marched from the county of Cheshire 
at the requisition of Major General Gates to reinforce the army 
at Ticonderoga from October 28 to November 18, 177G; on 
alarm with men from Cornish and adjacent towns to reinforce 
the garrison at Ticonderoga, from June 27 to July 11, 1777. 
During this campaign he was appointed senior or color sergeant. 
He \;'as also with men from Cornish who joined the Continental 
army under General Gates, near Saratoga, from September 22 to 
October 23, 1777." At a council holden at Concord, N. H., June 
14, 1786, he was nominated major for the Twenty-fourth Regi- 
ment, and received the appointment June 5, 1787." 

He was married twice, first at Lebanon, 18 January, 1776,

1827. He lived in Lebanon until 1791, when he moved to 
Brookfield, Vt., and purchased of Shubal Cross the farm since 
known as "Willow Grove." It is located in the widest part of 
the valley of the East branch, or the headwaters of White 
River. He resided there until his death, after suffering several 
years with kidney disease. Associated with his arrival in Brook- 
field is the purchase of a large silver spoon marked "N. W.," 
which has descended through each generation as the property 
of the one named Nathaniel. He possessed all his faculties to 
the last, and said, "He was prepared to die; he trusted his peace 
was made with God through the Redeemer." He was a consist- 
ent and persevering Christian, and possessed the respect and 
confidence of his townsmen, which was manifested by the im- 
portant offices they were pleased to bestow upon him. 

His first wife was daughter of Azariah Bliss, one of the 
first settlers, and one of the most respected citizens of Lebanon,

Glastonbury, afterwards Wetbersfiekl, Conn. He was taxed 
at that time for five thousand acres. His father came from 
Norwich, Norfolk County, England. 

Lydia Loveland's father Joseph Avas born in Glastonbury 
and lived there until March 18, 1776, when he moved to Han- 
over, N. H., and from there to Norwich, Vt , November 16, 1779, 
where he died from accidental poisoning September, 1813. May 
7th, 1777, he enlisted in Col. Jonathan Chase's Regiment to re- 
inforce the Continental Ai-my at Ticonderoga (State Papers N. H.) 
His daughter Lydia married Col. Wheatley. They lived at 
"Willow Grove," the old Wheatley farm. For many years 
they kept hotel, it being a relay station of the through stages 
between Montreal and Boston. He was a prominent member 
and a constant attendant at the Orthodox church and held fam- 
ily prayers daily. Often when returning from church he would 
discover people fishing and it was his habit to endeavor to dis- . 
suade them from such use of the Lord's day. They perhaps 
excused it with claiming it a necessity to obtain food, whereujion 
he always loaded them with j^rovisions and sent them home con- 
tented. Col. AYheatley gained his title in connection with the f 
state militia; the broad fields west of the branch were used for 
parade and drill. He represented the town of Brookfield in the 
state legislature and once served a term in the senate. He was 
an upright citizen, highly esteemed wherever he was known and 
always exerted a good influence in the community. Ambitious 
and enterprising, he was steadily looking forward to modern 
methods of farming. He first used the up to-date agricultural 
imjilements in his vicinity. His two horse mowing machine was 
the wonder of the region for some time, people coming long dis- 
tances to see it work. He was an active whig in politics.

Euuice Wliesitley was married October C, 1813, at Brook- 
field, to David Loveland (No. 6, Lovelaud Genealogy) b Nor- 
wich, G July, 1782, d Norwich, 28 March, 1828. They resided 
on a farm in Conn. River Valley, which was divided between their 
two sons George and John. David Loveland made a success of 
farming, as his perseverance and energy would of anything he 
might undertake. He worked early and late. It is said that 
he used to do a full day's work, and then mount his horse to 
ride thirty miles to see Eunice Wheatle}'. In her he found a 
helpmate indeed, one who, after his death, bravely took up 
the charge of affairs with the care of three young children," and 
lived to have eleven grandchildren call her blessed. The life of 
an ordinarv farmer, even a successful one, who died at the com- 
paratively eaily age of forty-tive years, is not regarded with 
interest by the general public, but it is pleasant for his descend- 
ants to gather up the traditions which have come down, and, 
finding nothing to conceal, make mention of his thrift and ster- 
ling character. Such a man was David Loveland, who, after 
attaining his majority remained for a time on the ancestral farm, 
which he carried on in company with his brother William, and 
on which he built a house. In 1820 he comj^leted the pvirchase 
of a large farm a mile and a half up the Connecticut I'iver, where 
he several years later built a large house, which has since been 
occupied by his descendants. His brother John helped in 
making the bricks, and traced on two of them, while soft, the 
words, "Fear God and keep his commandments." 

So far as is known, our farmer was never gone long, save 
once, from his native town. His father, with another man, made 
a contract to build a turnpike in Rowley, Mass., and when it was 
partly done the partner took the money which had been re- 
ceived and with his horse and chaise went to Canada. The elder 
Loveland returned home discouraged, feeling that his farm must 
go to pay the helj), but David, young at the time, engaged more 
men who were good workers, and while William assisted at 
home, he finished the road and helped to save the homestead.

Wheatleys to do the same. 

Mr. Wheatley was one of the relijible and })r()miu('iit citi-

He had been honored by many positions of responsibility and 
trust by his fellow-townsmen. He was a very indulgent lius-

the reward of the just.

h'd ill the movement of adopting very strong and decided meas- 
iiics in favor of puliHc worshiji and ])ul)lic instruction. Tlieir 
descfiidauts, brothers of Mrs. Wheatley, have settled in tlie 
Western states and taken with them their princii)l('s, morals, 
and social and intellectual habits, and caused them to take 
root in new soil. Thus have these Wood boys lieen prominent 
in the develojjment of the cities in which they were pioneers. 

Married second, December 18, 1802, at Bellows Falls, Vt., 
to Mrs. Jane E. (Barnes) Hall, b Brandou, Vt., July 12, 1828. 
Nathaniel AVheatley was lioin at "Willow Grove," and it has 
always been his home except two years soon after his first nun- 
riage. His father gave him the part of the home farm next 
iiiiitli of the old homestead, but as Colonel Nathaniel was get- 
ting old he wanted less care, so he traded with Nathaniel Jr. 
The tine old house has passed its century of usefulness and has 
always been owed by a Nathaniel "Wheatley. (1902) It seems 
to present an air of hospitality to every arrival, and has always 
been established as the headcjuarters of all returning relatives 
visiting the scenes of their childhood. The buildings and farm 
have been much imjiroved during this generation. Its owner 
becoming a well to do agriculturist has taken pride in keepiug 
up the rei)utation of his father of being ])rogi"essive. He 
gained a start tinaucially V)y introducing ^Merino sheep into the 
locidity. Farmers all through this section looked to him for the 
best registered stock. He lived an ui)right life, was an industrious 
law-abiding citizen, much resi)ected, though preferring not to 
take public office. He served a few terms in managing town 
uffnirs, and was postmaster at East Brookfield over twenty years, 
being appointed by President Lincoln. In politics he had great 
faith in the protective principles of the Republican party.

THE WHEATLEY REUNION 

Held at "Willow Grove," the old Wheatley homestead, in Brook- 
tie'd, Vt., July 24, 1879, was the centennial anniversary of the 
settlement of the farm. On Thursday, the 24th, all the Wheat- 
leys and those who had Wheatley blood in their veins, were in- 
vited to the old Wheatley homestead, now occupied by Nathan- 
iel Wheatley, (5() IV 16) to participate in a family reunion, 
the first of the kind on record. About seventy were present, 
representing-, besides the Wheatley name, that of Bowman, 
Clark, Edson, Fennessey, Newell, Peck, Sjjrague, and Wilcox. 

Just one hundred years ago Captain Shirt al Cross came to 
Brookfield, took some land and laid out a farm. Twelve years 
later, in 1791, the first Nathaniel Wheatley, (5 II 1) came 
into town and bought out Captain Cross. Since then the place 
has always V een held by a Nathaniel Wheatley, that being the 
name of the father and grandfather of the present occupant. A 
fine young- man bearing the same name we hojDe may in his turn 
keej3 up the old homestead, which however is not suffered to 
grow old in appearance but despite its years is "forever charm- 
ing and forever new." 

During- the afternoon the company were entertained hj 
music, literary exercises by the young people, and by remarks 
hj the older ones. Mr. Wheatley invited all present and as many 
more as might hapjjen to be, to come to this place twelve years 
from this time to celebrate the centennial of the first Wheatley's 
appearance in Brookfield. Last but not least came the good 
things from the bountifully spread tables, the young people

Notliiug' seemed lacking to make the occasion an enjoyable one, 
and all voted the reunion a decided success. E. L. W. Wilcox, 
(Edith,) read the following which she composed for the occasion: 

"Welcome my friends to this dear old home. 

Welcome here one and all; 
Uncles, and aunts, and cousins, 

Have well responded to our call. 

From far and near we rally today, 

On the old farm that you know 
Captain Cross laid out in the woods so dense. 

Just one hundred years ago. 

Oh! If these walls could speak today, 

And tell us their stories of sorrows and joys. 

And echo the voices of father and mother. 
And the merry band of girls and boys. 

Time carries us back, as we're thinking- now 
Of the many gatherings iu this home nest. 

Where are the loved ones that we met? 
Scattered on earth, or gone to rest. 

Grandfather and grandmother, where are they? 

Theii" portraits hang in the room close by, 
Their guardian spirits are with us today, 

They wait for us in the sweet bye and bye. 

Uncle Jesse, too, has gone from our midst, 

Dear kind uncle, we miss you today; 
Cousin (leorge, also, so happy and cheerful, 

And aunt Harriet, too, have all passed away. 

Aunt Lj'dia Ann, Lucinda and mother, 
Mary and Fred, and Charlie have gone; 

God has called them to l)etter homes. 
Taking them gentl}, one by one.

We cannot but think of old times and friends, 
As we meet to welcome each other here; 

We've covered their graves with beavitifiil Howers, 
And shed for them affection's tears. 

But let us now turn to the group before us, 
Descendants of those good and true. 

Has not their mantle of talent and virtue 
Fallen upon each one of you? 

I'm sure we're proud of our little circle, 

Dentist and lawyer and teacher. 
Dressmaker, doctor and farmer, 

And who knows but a future Ward Beecher. 

All honor to each learned profession; 

But best of all that have come, 
Are the loving parents so dear, 

Who reign in our happy home. 

Some from the classic halls of Dartmouth, 

With highest honors come, 
Some from the Randoliah Normal school, 
• Their good J eports bring home. 

And some with high attainments, 

Come from the school of great reform. 

Where naughty boys are taught to take 
Their officers by storm. 

Others engaged in the noble work. 
Of teaching the little ones ABC; 

Others in a college of high renown, 
Asj^iring to the title of M. D. 

Aud what shall we say of the older ones. 
Farther along in the journey of life? 

No blazoned title marks the name 

Of father and mother, husband and wife.

Charlotte Wbeatley was married 23 September, 1846, at 
Brookfield, Vt., to Nathan Parish Bowman, b Westford, Vt., 24 
August, 1822. They Hved six years on a farm in Westford and 
two years in Burlington, Vt., when Mr. Bowman was sheriff. In 
1855 he became a customhouse officer and they moved to Island 
Pond, Vt. During the war of the rebellion he was paymaster, 
gaining the title of Major. After the war closed he hired a 
plantation at Newberne, N. C. Eeturning to Vermont in 1867 
they j)urchased a house on Main street, St. Johnsbury. Major 
Bowman entered the insurance business and was an active demo- 
crat in politics. He was elected judge for Caledonia County in 
1876, (about the only democratic officer in the state) and was 
appointed postmaster at St. Johnsbury liy President Cleveland. 
The Judge gave such good satisfaction that he held the office 
nearly through President Harrison's administration. 

Charlotte Wheatley Bowman united with the Orthodox 
church at Brookfield, when only eleven years old. Father Wild 
was then pastor. She was an active Christian, being a success- 
ful Sunday school teacher when quite young. Upon their settle- 
ment in Westford she immediately united with the Congrega- 
tional church there. At Island Pond she was active in Christ- 
ian work, having part in organizing that church and Sabbath 
school. While South she and her daughter, Nellie, a lovable lit- 
tle angel, were truly idolized by the blacks. Residing in St. 
Johnsbury since 1867 she has borne her j^art as a faithful 
Christian woman in every good work, social, moral and in the 
church. She and her husband were bound up in their children 
and it was a severe blow to them when death entered their 
home and bore away their darling Nellie and their first son. 

Mrs. Bowman had much literary ability. Her talent is 
shown quite well by the following lines to Nellie who died 20 
Mav, 1869.

Nellie! the joy and wonder of om* eyes 

Has left her friends, to view her native skies, 
Just as her rising sun began its way. 

Her morning fair, and every prospect gay, 
When growing virtues sparkled in her eyes, 

AVhich raised at once, love, hope, and sweet surprise, 
The lovely youth reclined her beauteous head, 

Nellie, alas! is numbered with the dead. 
As earliest roses of the l)loomiug spring, 

Round which harmonious birds delight to sing, 
By lurking winter — by untimely frost. 

Are niijped, then fade and all their beauty lost. 
So this dear tender plant to early death, 

(Since called by Heaven) resigned her willing breath, 
But thrice three vernal seasons had she past, 

Ere nature failed, and Nellie breathed her last. 
A cankerous worm upon her vitals preyed, 

Death called his victim, she the call obeyed. 
Oh hajji^}' victim! thou hast changed the pain. 

For life and glory, and eternal gain, 
Fair charity with pleasure sees her rise, 

Borne by attending angels through the skies. 
With shouts of joy, the heavenly arches ring. 

While she appears before her Lord and King. 
A\ e leave her there, nor do we fear to guess, 

She is sweetly roaming in climes of bliss, 
Let's cease to mourn, let not one doubt arise. 

And prepare to meet her, hapjjy in the skies." 

Charlotte was devoted to her home, giving the brightness of 
her life to it rather than to the most attractive social circle; a 
true wife and mother, she yet found time and strength for 
neighborly social and religious duties, in the parlors where she 
was welcome, but much more in the homes of the poor where 
she could carry sympathy and help, perhaps fitting ii]) tli<' diil- 
dren for Sundav school, or by the sick bed ministering tollic

sufferers. No one knows how much of this work she did, but 
testimony from many sources convinces us that when the books 
are opened the record will show faithfulness and success. She 
saw her husband and all her children one after another come to 
Christ. 

She had cared for Mr. Bowman through a long sickness 
and before being taken sick had expressed the belief that her 
work was nearly done, and made extra effort to complete it, and 
seemed to have a call to S2:)ecial faithfulness. Immediately upon 
giving up she said she should not recover, and made all plans 
for her funeral. She spoke of wanting her old minister. Dr. L. 
O. Barstowof Burlington, to conduct the services. Also said 
"I should like to die on a pleasant Sunday evening," and as the 
sun was setting the next bright Sunday afternoon she mur- 
nuired, "My work is done; I have done \\hat I could;" and 
passed quietly away, to meet her children and friends who had 
gone before. She believed they would be leaning over the bat- 
tlements to welcome her. Hers wa,s a beautiful life. 

So not alone we land upon that shore, 

'Twill be as though we had been there before; 

We shall meet more we know. 

Than we can meet below. 

And find our home like some returning dove. 

And be at home at once with our eternal love. 

Her wishes were all carried out at her funeral. Mr. Bow- 
man married again, 7 April, 1885, Mrs. Rosalie Denison Hall, a 
most estimable helpmate.

the name of Adams began the manufacture of spring steel forks, 
the first ever made, at a little shoj) south east of the Centre.

company for the more extensive production at the Mill Village 
in Brookfield, Vt., later moving to larger works, with a new part- 
nership at White River Village, Vt. These tools were famed 
far outside this country, being much sought for in the English

West hill four years and then moved home to care for the farm 
and his father and mother. His parents lived to a comfortable 
old age, having occasion to be thankful for such a son and 
daughter. These two faithful guardians of the blind and aged • 
relatives bid fair to receive the same kindly care from their son 
and daughter. Friends were sure to find a cordial welcome at 
this hosj)itable home. Jesse was a man of rare physical 
health until past seventy years of age, when he became troubled 
with an indolent ulcer on his right hand which hospital physi- 
cians deemed serious enough to warrant the removal of three 
fingers, leaving only the thumb and little finger. This reduced 
his strength but had no effect upon his cheerful disposition. 
Sarah, his wife, was a lady of an erect figure and dignified i)res- 
euce with a loving and pleasant disposition.

Seminary. Her education was gained at Miss Grant's school at 
Ipswich, Alass. Lucinda was a woman of a strong religious 
nature, refined and intellectual and of much personal beauty. ^Ir. 



'>'*^ THE VVHEATLEY GENEALOGY. 

Nesmitli's education was such as could be obtained from the 
district and high schools of Derry, N. H. He was a pioneer in 
the linen industry, beginning with a horse and two wheeled cart. 
He gathered the thread from the country people and carried it 
home to his grandmother to color; his sisters wove it into cloth, 
for which he found a ready sale in Lynn and other large towns. 
By this means, at the end of a few years he had accumulated six 
thousand dollars, with which he founded a more extensive busi- 
ness. When he went to Lowell, manufacturing corporations and 
city institutions were just assuming tangible form. He was a 
memler of the city government the first two years of its exis- 
tence, and he he'ped forward many enterprises that were strug- 
gling into being. In the second war for independence he en- 
listed 15 September, 1814, from Windham, N. H., and was a 
lieutenant in Capt. Nathaniel G. Bradley's company which was 
stationed at Portsmouth, N. H. In 1820 he was colonel of the 
8th N. H. mihtia. His integrity was not questioned, and his 
moral and courteous bearing made him a pattern man in business 
affairs, a good citizen and neighbor, a gentleman in social life. 
One of his benevolent acts was the founding of the "Nesmith 
Library" in his native town. To the deserving poor of Lowell he 
left the "Nesmith Fund" of twenty-five thousand dollars, which 
is now in the hands of trustees and has been a great benefit to 
many worthy people.

Edith L. Wheatley was married 23 June, 187"), at lirook- 
field, to Hemy A. Wilcox M. D., b BrookHeld, 1844, d Stamford, 
Conn., 10 April, 1877. Edith was a loving woman of (piick sen- 
siltilities of whom it was said "she had a heart full of true reli- 
gion and a head free from theology true or false." There 
are names that have in them all the sweetness of music, and 
when they are spoken they bring peace and comfort and beauti- 
ful memories; such was Edie. She was so gentle and the ele- 
ments so mixed in her that nature might stand up and say to 
all, "this is a true woman." By her friends she was frecjuently 
spoken of as "Lily of the Valley." She was of medium height, 
rather stout, with a face shining with (luiet happiness and un- 
selfishness; a soft, sweet voice, which had no harshness when com- 
manding, although she was a strict disciplinarian. She gracbiated 
at the llandolph normal school in 18(i7, and began teaching at 
the age of sixteen, following for nine years the work she loved 
so well. She reahzed early that life was not meant for play day, 
and when she became a teacher she took with her into the 
schoolroom a strong faith and earnest endeavor for the higliest 
development of her pupils to fit them for the various walks of 
life, to make l)etter citizens and give them the hapi>ior. liigher 
type of man and womanhood, for she sought more than mental 
progress, even moral and spiritual growth. A short but hai)i)y

period of lier life was after her marriage to Dr. Henry A. Wilcox, 
who was a graduate from the N. Y. Homeopathic Medical Col- 
lege in 1873 and immediately entered a successful practice at 
Winchenden, Mass. Their beautifvil home there was a spiritual 
and social centre for a short two years. As sunlight casts 
shadows, happiness, too, throws a shadow, and the shadow is 
sadness. Edith lecame a mother in 1876. The following Feb- 
ruary Dr. Wilcox had to go south for his health, but returned 
in April, dying on the way home. After his death Edith, ahnost 
broken hearted, made her home with her father at "Willow 
Grove" where, after a year of great suffering she died four years 
later. Some lives seem too short. To us these two appeared to 
be broken off at the wrong place in the midst of earnest success- 
ful work. Two Christians have gone to their reward; both joined 
the church when young. Dr. Wilcox was a Mason and Odd 
Fellow and was prominent in Vermont and Massachusetts medi- 
cal societies. Edith wrote many poems which were a grand 
success in showing us the beauty there is in common things. 
All through her life with its sad changes she kept that wonder- 
ful serenity of mind and that happy facvilty of living above the 
trials of life. Assisted by her brother Hannibal she did good 
work in bringing this history down to 1880, hoping to see it 
l^rinted.

Irving Wheatley acquired his education in the public schools 
of his native town and completed a four years' course at the St. 
Johnsbury academy, graduating in 1880. Several years follow- 
ing this he was teacher and assistant to the superintendent in 
the Kansas State Reform School at Topeka, Kansas; supplement- 
ing his work there by the study of architecture and perfecting 
himself in civil engiDeering. In 1886 he entered the employ of 
the Atkinson, Topeka & Santo Fe Railway Co., as transit man in 
an engineering corps; six months later he was put in charge of 
a locating party which located a number of their important lines 
in Kansas, Indian Territory and Colorado. When this railway 
began the extension of their line from Kansas City to Chicago 
he was transferred to this division and made superintendent of 
bridges, buildings and water service with headquarters at Fort 
Madison, Iowa. In 1890 he gave up railroad work and asso- 
ciated himself with the North Western Contracting Company (a 
construction comjmuy of Chicago), where he had charge of the

construction of the Grant Locomotive Works and several other 
hu'fi^e manufacturinfif plants iu and about Chicago, also parts of 
Chicago's elevated railway system. In 1892 while yet in the 
employ of the same company he had general su])orvision of the 
work of building mam- of the wonderful productions of ar<-hi- 
tecture on the World's Fair grounds, among them being the 
terminal railway station, the electrical and U. S. government 
building. He had charge of the placing of many of the exhibits 
for both foreign and domestic exhibitors. As all the contract- 
ors were compelled by their contracts to keep the buildings in 
repair during the entire six months of the fair, it gave him a 
rare opportunity to familiarize himself in detail with this great 
Worlds exposition. Soon after the World's Fair he associated 
himself with B. Langtry Sous of Strong City, Kansas, railroad 
and general contractors, as Huperintendent of theii- contracts 
in Missouii, Iowa and Illinois, with offices at Fort Madison, 
Iowa. February 22, 1902 he began work on the big contract to 
till a part of China Basin in Frisco Bay, California. B. Langtry 
Sons in consideration of one million dollars took this contract of 
the Atchison, Topeka & Sante Fe Railroad Co. with the under- 
standing that in two years time they will move the big hill l)ack 
of the historic old Presidio and reclaim sixty eight acres of ten-i- 
tory now presided over by Neptune. This will give the Sante 
Fe a level substantial tract of land for terminal facilities. Dur- 
ing the winter of 1902 Superintendent I. N. AVheatley was trans- 
fered to the Pacific coast department with office at Los Angeles 
where the above work will prol)ably kee]) liim for the next two

by procuring from the unique Brookfield library, an institution 
now over one hundred years old. Major Nathaniel Wheatley 
being one of the founders, books by such wholesome writers as 
Rev. Elijah Kellogg and Henry Thoreau. At first he attended 
the Vermont Methodist seminary in Montpelier but in the fall of 
1887 he entered the St. Johnsbury academy and graduated in 
1888, During this academy year he was elected class orator. 
Then for two years he taught school. In the summer of 1889 
while taking a carriage drive in company with his father he 
called on the late U. S. Senator Justin S. Morrill at his country 
house in Strafford. The senator was a trustee of the Univer- 
sity of Vermont and advised a college course. This and a visit 
by Prof, W. W. Cooke of the university decided him to enter 
college, from which he graduated in the class of '93. In college 
he was one of the associate editors of the University Cynic for 
two years and one of the charter members of the Kappa Sigma 
fraternit3\ It was during his course of study that the bill to 
establish a sej^arate agricultural college was introduced into the 
legislature. This bill had passed the House and was before the 
Senate when the subject of this sketch wrote the famous petition 
signed by a large number of the university students, and accom- 
panied by a student delegation, went to Montpe'ier and made a 
speech in the Senate before a committee of that body. The re- 
sult was a killing of the bill. His college expenses were largely 
met by his work as assistant secretary of the Vermont Dairy- 
men's Association and lectures at the winter meetings of the 
Vermont Board of Agriculture. After graduation he visited the 
Columbian Exposition and matriculated in the University of 
Chicago, but in a few weeks sickness compelled him to return 
East. When health returned he entered the University of Ver-

depai'tment and later had charge of the foreign mails in the 
Boston postofHce. He was one of the best known and efficient 
clerks in the office. After sixteen years of faithful service he 
was detached from the Boston office in the sjjring of 1898, and 
sent in charge of the mails in the Santiago campaign. In the 
summer he was appointed postmaster of Guatanamo, Cuba, 
where he died of yellow fever Thursday, October 27, 1898. 
Postmaster Thomas of Boston thought very highly of him and 
immediately made arrangements with the war department for 
the transportation of his body home. His widow, a most esti- 
mable woman, and her four bright children received the sincere 
sympathy of the general public, who contributed most generously 
to her comfort. Walter Spicer was the first employee of the Post 
Office Department to die in the war service. The Postmaster 
General expressed deep symj)athy for the bereaved family, and 
started a movement to provide a pension for this class of cases.

David Andrew Lovelaud was married 20 November, 1860, 
to Clara A. Olds, b 28 March, 1840, Norwich, Vt.; daughter of 
FraukKu Olds, He was the grandson of Eunice Wheatley 
Loveland and of the seventh generation of the descendants of 
Thomas Lovelaud who settled in Glastonbury, Connecticut, in 
1635. Mr. Loveland was educated in the public schools of 
Norwich, Vt., and fitted for college at the Thetford,Vt., Academy. 
He never entered college, however, but shortly after leaving the 
academy he purchased a farm three miles northwest of the vil- 
lage of Norwich, Vermont, and began the life of a farmer. He 
was an entertaining conversationalist. After seven years of farm 
life Mr Loveland sold his farm and during the years of 1868 
to 1872 was engaged in the business of railroad supplies and 
contractor in New York City. In 1872 he returned to Norwich 
and purchased the farm, which he owned and cultivated at the 
time of his death, although he removed from the farm to the 
village of Norwich in 1881.- He was very much interested in 
the welfare of his native town and took an active part in every 
attempt to improve it, and especially the common schools. He 
was an earnest advocate of higher education for the young men 
and women of the town. He was one of the founders of the 
Norwich Library Association in which he took great interest to 
the time of his death. In politics Mr. Loveland was an enthu- 
siatic republican and for most of the time during the last twenty 
years of his life was chaii-man of the Republican town commit- 
tee. He was frequently honored by his fellow townsmen and at 
different times filled nearly every office in the gift of the town. 
He served as Selectman in 1874, 1875, 1876, and 1881. He 
was Justice of the Peace and Trial Justice of the town for many 
years l)efore his death. He was frequently called upon liy his 
fellow citizens to take care of trust funds, settle estates, and act 
as guardian for minors, and other simi-ar trusts. September 
6, 1892, he was elected to represent the town of Norwich in the 
12th Bi-ennial Session of the General Assembly of the State of 
Vermont, where he served with marked ability. He was a mem-

her of the Committee ou Ay^ricultiire. In the fall of 189(» he 
WHS ejected as Senator from Wimlsor County to the l-4th Bi-eu- 
niul Session of the General Assembly of the State of Vermont. 
In this body he was a member of the Committee on Hi-dnvavs 
and of the Committee ou A{>rii'ulture. He died at Norwich, 
Vermont, Oeto' er T, 1898, having- won the love and c-ontideuce 
of all who knew him by his honest, ni)right and unselfish life 
amouo- them. Short'y after his death his associates in the Sen- 
ate passsed the following resolutions: 

Whereas. The Senate of 189G, at its reunion in .Mont- 
peMer this ITth day of November, A. D. 18<)8, have heard with 
regret of the death of our brother Senator, Hon. David A, 
Loveknd. 

Resolved. That we are deeply pained by the sad intelli- 
gence of this the first break in our ranks; that we hereby ex- 
press our appreciation of the manly (inanities of Senator Love- 
land, of his devotion to duty, and his quiet, unobtrusive and 
conscientious effort as a memljer of the Senate of 18!K). 

Resolved. That we tender to the bereaved family our sin- 
cere symjiathy and that the Secretary send to his family a copy 
of these resolutions.

graduated from Dai-tmouth college on June 27, 1878, free from 
debt. He chose Jaw for a profession but soon concluded that 
teaching was more his forte. In this vocation he met with ever 
increasing success; rising from the Principal of the graded 
school at West Randolph, Vermont, where he was one year, to 
having charge of the schools in New York City. His tii-st call 
to come up higher was to the State Nonual school at Randolph, 
Vermont, where he staved five vears. This school was in a 
lamentable condition but Andrew was not long in liringing it to 
a high standard of excellence. Here was shown the make up 
of the man. A devoted Christian, earnest and thorough in 
whatever he undertakes; an interesting Sunday S<'hool teacher 
and a successful educator. He next became connected >vith 
Attleboro, Massachusetts, schools for two years, from 1884 to 
188G. He was then for two yeai's Superintendent of schools in 
Jersey City, following with eight years as State Su}>erintendent 
of Massachusetts. In 1896 he was called to New York City. 
His oft repeated maxim was "there is always room at the top." 
He and his wife were always leaders in society, she frequently 
prepaiing his lectures while his time was much taken with rou- 
tine work connected with his positions. Their home is at 680, 
St. Nicholas Avenue, New Y'ork City, where he is serving as a 
member of the Board of Superintendents for the boroughs of 
Manhattan and the Bronx.

Fi-ank Henry Wilcox was married 31 July, 1901, at Brook- 
field, Vt., to Lizzie May Lamson, b 30 April, 1880, at Brookfield. 
He acquired his education in the schools at Brookfield and at 
the St. Johnsbury, Vt., academy. But his love of the farm, in- 
fluenced largely by the necessit}^ of spending as much of the 
year as possible helping his grandfather Wheatley run the old 
farm, caused him early to turn from books to practical farming. 
In 1894 he bought the farm next north of "Willow Grove" of 
Willam Wheatley and fitted the biiildings with modern conven- 
iences. To this place, known as "Meadow View," he took his 
bride upon their return from a wedding trip to the Pan Ameri- 
can exhibition at Buffalo. Mrs. Wilcox gained her education at 
the schools of her native town and at Randolph normal school. 
She taught several terms of school.

June, 18()1, to the spring of IStU, he ministered to a church in 
Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Then followed two years of service as 
District Secretary of the American Baptist Home ^Mission Soci- 
ety for New England. He became a })astor at Janesville, Wis., 
February ], 18(;r), and continued until Sei)teml>er, 1871. after 
which he spent a winter with the Twenty-rifth street Church in 
Xew York City. And on May 1, 1872, began service as pastor 
of the First Church of Kalamazoo, Mich. This continued until 
the fall of 1878, when he went to Milwaukee, Wis., and liecame 
pastor of the Fii-st Baptist Church in that city, and so continued 
until the spring of 1881, when he returned to Janesville, Wis., 
and entered on a second pastorate with this church, which con- 
tinued over sixteen years, and ended June 1, 1S'.»7. However, 
the Doctor's ability as a preacher was still in demaTid in Wis- 
consin, and for the second time he was called to minister in the 
church at Beaver Dam. In 1849 Dr. Hodge received the hon- 
orary degree of A. M. from the University of Vermont, and the 
same from Rochester University in 1854. He received a!so the 
degree of D. D. from the University of Chicago, in 18(>7. Few are 
the men who have carried these honorary titles more worthily. 
After the death of his wife, April 11, 19(10, Dr. Hodge felt that 
he was unable longer to carry the resi)onsil)ilities of a pastorate, 
and so, May 1, closing his work at Beaver Dam, he went to the 
home of his oldest daughter, ^Vlrs. E. F. Welch, at Oak Park, 
111., where he spent the remainder of his life. His fraternal in- 
terest in the younger men of the ministry has always been an

geon in the army, stationed in the U, S. General Hospital at 
Burlington. Dr. Perry was a very honorable chi'istian man, a 
life-long member of the Congregational Church. He was as 
attentive in the practice of his profession among the poor as 
among the rich. He died at the age of eighty-seven years. 
His wife survived him several years. His children were: 

1 Helen Maria Perry, married A. K. Ballard of Bvirliug-

about 1870. They had several children, all of whom

We find that many of the families who intermarried with 
the Wheatlej's in England have also come to America; and in 
some instances have formed like domestic ties in present gen- 
erations. Among those who are citizens of New England towns 
in common with the Wheatleigh families are the Barker, Bassett, 
Black, Drake, Evans, Fennessy, Hall, Haynes, Holmes, Howe, 
Pane or Paine, Parker, Piper, Roberts, Rawlins or Rollins, 
Skinner, Waring, White, Wingate and Wood. These family' 
names that were evidently common in the same neighhorhood 
with Wheatleys in England two or three hundred years ago are 
toda}' found in the same communities. Doubtless many are 
descendants from the same families. Edmund Wingate, the 
sou of Martha Wheatleigh and Roger Wingate (see page 14) 
was a near relative of Sir Francis Wingate, the justice who sent 
John Bunyan to Bedford jail in 1660, Their descendants, who 
are numeious in southern New Hampshire, are very active 
christian citizens.

POKOMOONSHINE PICNIC GROUNDS. 

I want to extend to relatives an invitation to iiiiike my 
home and camps a resting place whenever stopping in tliis part 
of New England. There are many pleasant places about Fariu- 
ington for a day's outing, and my camps at Alton ]3ay and Loon 
Cove, Lake Winnii)esaukee, (which John L. Stoddard says has the 
most beantiful scenery of any lake in the world,) is at your ser-
