The Boulder- Monument 



(Bridge Street Cemetery - Northampton, Mast

A STATEMENT 

According to B. W. Dwight's "History of the Strong Family," John Strong 
was the first Strong in America and was the progenitor of nearly all the Strongs 
now here, along with their co-relatives. According to Governor Caleb Strong, 
whose statement Dwight quotes in full, Vol. 1, page XXVI, XXVII, John Strong 
came on the "Mary and John" in 1630 and married Abigail Ford in 1635 or 1636. 
(Some genealogists place his coming — not Abigail's coming — as late as 1635. I may 
say that, aided by the splendid New York Library, I have gone over the evidence, 
and believe that Governor Strong's statement that John Strong came on the ' Mary 
and John" will stand.) 

Thomas Ford, whose name is on this monument, was a man of force and 

character. Three other daughters married Roger Clap, Richard Lyman and Aaron 

Co?k — progenitors of distinguished American families. John Strong and Abigail 

Ford had a family of 15 or 16 children. " Before he died in 1699 there were about 

him 150 descendants. He was in or near the beginnings of Dorchester, Hingnam, 

Taunton, Mass., and Windsor, Conn. About 1660, he and Abigail settled in 

Northampton, Mass. He was there the first ruling elder — and for nearly 40 years, 

until his death, in 1699. 

lover] 



While occupying the pulpit of the First Church, Northampton, July, 1928, I 
found that no monument had been erected in memory of these progenitors of the 
Strong family. A few of us put our minds together, and the result is the boulder 
monument. 

Chief credit is due Miss Harriet J. Kneeland, Northampton, for the completion 
of the project. While her brother secured the boulder from the hills, and I had 
the pleasure of passing the hat, she carried through the plans of setting and cutting 
the boulder, and preparing the tablet. The cost was: Boulder, $18; Setting 
boulder, $50; Tablet, $48; Setting tablet, $70; Total, $186. 

Descendants of Elder John Strong and Abigail Ford (numbering tens an.i 
tens of thousands) as they visit Northampton, Mass., may now see this boulder- 
monument, in memory of their sturdy and excellent forebears. The Chpps, Lymans 
and Cooks will also be interested in the name of Thomas Ford, whose daughters 
were the women-founders of these illustrious American families. I predict that man.' 
reunions will be held about this rock, as the decades and centuries pass — and 
increasingly as automobiles and aeroplanes multiply. 

This statement is made for the contributors. It will be filed in the Forbes 
Library, Northampton, along with the receipts.

months previous to his death, will interest his descendants : 

" Son Stephen : 

" Hearty love to you, hoping you are well ; as I am, blessed he 
God for it. I have nothing of news to write to you. I wrote a letter to 
your mother yesterday, and therein all the news I have : but yet 1 gladly 
take the opportunity to write a word to you, as a testification of my love 
to you. I hope you will be mindful of the advice I left you. Be tender 
of, and obedient to your mother. I hope you take care of affairs at 
home; they are but little in my, thoughts; but I daily mind you, and 
God forbid" that I should cease to "pray for you daily. I want such op- 
portunity for it as I had at home. Lear son, pray for yourself and for 
me also. Give my respects to your mother. What I here say to you, 
I herein say to the rest of my dear ones. Also my affectionate love to 
my dear daughter. Naught else. 

I remain your affectionate father, 

Jedediah Strong." 

July 19, 1709.

Five of these children: Lydia, Peter, Abel, Hannah, and Reuben, died 
within ten days of each other of " the black throat distemper," as it was 
called. For an account of this scourge which began in 1734, and ravaged 
the country for several years, sweeping off children in large numbers, and 
sometimes obliterating in a few days large families of them, see Trum- 
bull's Hist, of Connecticut, vol. ii, p. 137, etc. Lydia Strong d. Aug. 3,

[Lebanon, Ct., has bad a remarkable history. No town in the whole 
couutry has compared with it at all in the number of leading professional 
men that it has furnished to the nation. The reasons for such a marvel- 
lous fruitfulness in producing great and good men in a population so small, 
scattered and quiet, are worth finding out. To the author who has 
long admired the noble history of this little town they seem to be the 
fullowiug reasons combined : In the first place, the first settlers them- 
selves who went there from 1095, onwards, for several years that ,; the 
worship of God might be there set up and the kingdom of Christ enlarged." 
were of a superior stock, the very best intellectual and religious material 
for i( a new plantation " that Northampton, Norwich, etc., could "famish. 
Another faet in the ease was, that the land at Lebanon was and is of a 
very superioj quality, rewarding those who till it industriously in each 
generation with the means of providing generously for the higher wants

774 Descendants of Jedediah Strong of Lebanon, Ct., son of 

of their families. But most of all must be taken into account the grand 
school privileges of Lebanon in its early history. In 1700, the town 
appropriated 200 acres of land for a school and many of the proprietors 
gave of their own lands also for the same purpose. — Rev. Joseph Parsons 
giving five acres of his land. In 1740 a grammar school was established 
by a vote of the town, and it became a school of great celebrity, having 
pupils from 9 out of the 13 states of which the Union was then composed, 
and sending large numbers of them in successive years to Harvard and 
Yale. 

Here especially Nathan Tisdale, " Master Tisdale," as he has always 
been called, did a great work for his generation. He was b. in Lebanon, 
Sept. 19, 1732, and grad. at Harvard in 1719, set. 17, and took charge of 
the grammar school from his graduation to his death for 37 years (1749— 
1786). He was a strict disciplinarian, most exact in his work, and exact- 
ing in his requisitions of the right style of effort on the part of his pupils. 
He was an artist in his high calling and loved art itself, and inspired his 
pupils with his own enthusiasm as a thinker, and worker. A noble pro- 
cession of well trained minds came out from under his care for many long 
years to put their best endeavors to the advancement of the higher inter- 
ests of their day. They were such a3 Jeremiah Mason, Zephaniah Swift, 
Col. John Trumbull. Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, Jr., Rev. Dr. Lyman, 
Judge Baldwiu, and a host of others like them. Wherever any of the 
Strong Family trace back their lineage to Lebanon, Ct., let " Master Tis- 
dale," be held in lasting honor for his noble ideas and efforts. And let 
any of the family who wish to do the utmost in their power for the lusting 
welfare of the towns or cities in which they live, do what they can for the 
promotion in permanent ways of the interests of the higher Christian edu- 
cation in them.]

duty. When his fellow teachers and pupils expressed 
the fear on parting with him that they should never 
see his face again, he replied " I never think of that; 
I am persuaded that it is my duty to do what I can to 
save my country." In writing to them afterwards 
from camp he said, " I do not know that in all my life, 
I ever so truly desired and earnestly endeavored to 
have my heart right and my words and actions unex- 
ceptionable as since I came to this den of wickedness, 
the military camp of the Potomac." Again he says, 
" When I have been entering the crash of battle I have 
felt that prayer and faith have been the hands where- 
with a soul clings to heaven and safety. I have learned 
to tru-'t all hopes for this world and the next to him 
who died that i might live." He d. at New York 
Aug. 7, 1802, when on his way homewards.

Fie was a man of superior talents. His widow resides now (1869) at

Roxana Terry). She resides at Watertown. He d. April 5. 1866, of 
congestion of the lungs. He received his principal education at Oneida 
Academy, at Clinton, N". Y. (now Hamilton College). He was an eminent 
advocate, famous not for his technical legal knowledge, but for his great tact 
and ingenuity, and wonderful resources of his own in the management of 
cases, and for his inspiring and magnetic powers of eloquent speech which was 
always more powerful than polished. He was district attorney of Tioga 
county, afterwards first judge of the County Court and member of 
the 29th Congress (1846-7). He had no children. Says his step- 
son of him, George Sidney Camp, Esq., of Owego, for many years 
his law-partner : " The second marriage of Judge Strong, though con- 
tracted when he was 70 years of age was equal to any marriage that I 
ever knew in the happiness that it afforded ail concerned. He was one 
of the kindest hearted and most genial men that ever I knew, the best 
proof of which is that he was loved as a father by the children of former 
marriages in both of the families into which he married." 

He was instinctively polite and free with both hand and heart every- 
where, and remarkably frank and unreserved on all occasions and made 
alike warm friends and bitter enemies. He had an inexhaustible fund 
of good spirits at all times. He was a great reader rather than a close 
student. He was very tall, above six feet in stature, of dark complexion, 
high and prominent cheek bones, and a large mouth, and marked but in- 
teresting features. There is a fine portrait of him at Owego, by Bodle.

and himself all things, houses, lauds, home and occu- 
pation, were held in common.

Bichard English. Of their family but a meagre ac- 
count has been gleaned, and that after much effort. 
The needed records are doubtless garnered safely some- 
where ; but hitherto the spot where they lie concealed 
has not been found. Could a little longer time be 
6pared for the pursuit of further facts than the few 
scanty details which are here furnished, and which 
have very recently come to baud, the author doubts 
not that ample justice might be done to Capt. Strong's 
family history. Richard English and Freedom Strong, 
had 14 children. She d. Oct. 6, 1839.

and Temperance Phelps of Hebron (see subsequent page), a lady of vigor- 
ous mind who has helped me much in various ways in gathering up ances- 
tral memories and traditions respecting her large branch of the family, 
wrote me under date of March 18, 1870, to this effect : that a few years 
since she was visiting her aunt, Mrs. Asenath (Strong) Claghorne (see 
subsequent page), her school teacher in early life, and a lady at the time 
of sound mind, remarkable memory aud much intelligence, with her re- 
lative Miss Clarissa Ludden of Westhampton ; and that as her aunt 
showed her some bed spreads marked Abigail Caverley Strong, with her 
own hand, she said I never knew whence the name Caverley came into 
the family. She looked up with surprise and said : " Did not you know 
that we had royal blood in our veins : our ancestor (Phelps) was right- 
ful heir to the crown of England, but as there was another more favorite 
with the people, he to avoid bloodshed fled to this country with a young 
man by the name of Caverley then about 18 years of age, his nephew and 
the kiug's foot page. Having access to the royal treasury he loaded a ship 
with silver, came to Boston, changed his name, and purchased land largely, 
as Boston Neck, a part of Charleston, raid other public lands. After 
some time learning that a great reward was offered fo.-' his ca^ure, he 
changed his name again, destroyed all his papers, and weut to Connecticut 
(Hebron), to hide himself from his pursuers. She said that she had 
heard her mother (Mrs. Temperance (Phelps) Strong), say that she went 
with her grandmother Caverley into the room where some of the silver 
was deposited (in the walls). Mrs. Lyman remembers hearing her grand- 
mother say, that her father owned a good deal of Boston in real fact. She 
asked her, why he did not go and recover it, and was answered that her 
father thought that it would hurt very many people a great deal more than 
it would do him good. " I have often," she says, " heard my mother say, 
that her grandfather (Solomon Phelps), was a very rich man." She 
added, that from another source she learned some years ago, that her 
grandmother Temperance Phelps, was partially engaged to another person 
and that her father finding it cut asked her to take a ride with him, aud 
disclosed to her some of the facts of his early history in connection with 
the Caverleys in consequence of which she accepted the hand of Ezra 
Strong and the two families were united in one. His kingly name Guelph 
he changed to Phelps, dropping the g and altering ; ( - or v to ph. This 
family tradition has enough of the spice of curiosity in it to keeD it °-ood 
from one generation to another. It is garnered up in these pa^es for the 
amusement of Abigail Caverley's descendants in all time.]

life in teaching and about 18 in the practice of medicine, 
mostly in Indianapolis, Ind. For the last 8 years I 
have lived here. After driving off the wolves and 
killing the rattlesnakes we have succeeded in starting a 
little town : having a post office, blacksmith's shop, 
grist mill and store and a few houses. We have a farm 
of a little more than 1,000 acres, mostly in C ood culti- 
vation and with a plenty of fruit. Our occupation at 
present is milling, merchandizing, farming, stock-raisin <* 
and practising medicine when we can not help it "

lived for 30 years (1729-59) and d. in 1759, aged 85. Previously to

[John Lee b. in 1621, came to this country from Ipswicb, Eng., in 
Ship Francis, the last of April, 1634, when but 13 years of age, under 
the care of Mr. "William Westwood. This gentleman settled at New- 
town (Cambridge) Mass., whence he soon went to Hartford, Ct., in the 
company that settled that place, and was a prominent man there in the 
early years of that town. He and Dea. Stephen Hart lived side by side. 
Next we find Stephen Hart among the first settlers of Farmington, and 
soon afterwards, John Lee, also made freeman in it. In 1658, John Lee 
married Mary Hart, daughter of Dea. Stephen Hart. They united with 
the church July 15, 1660, under the care of" Rev. Roger Newton. At 
his death in 16S9, his estate was appraised at £359, lawful money. He 
was 68 years old. His children were: i. John Lee b. June 11, 1659.

youngest children, David and Tabitha to that place with her. She d. 
Oct. 10, 1700, by the fall off a horse (as already described under account of 
the family of Jedediah Strong, p. 770), aged 70. As to the family of Dea. 
Stephen Hart (deacon in the church of Rev. Thomas Hooker of Hartford) 
the author has not been able to gather very specific details. The records at 
Farmington back of 1682, are very imperfect and some of the earlier 
records were destroyed by fire. Whom Dea. Stephen Hart m. the author

April 2, 1739 (only daughter of John McCure a wealthy land holder) in 
Edinburgh, Scotland. 

[John McCure was' deeply implicated in the rebellion of 1715, in 
Scotland, and fled to this country, having first put his large property into 
the hands of a friend, to prevent its confiscation. He was in the receipt 
of rents until the time of his death, after which no remittances were 
made. He left surviving him his wife whose death occurred soon, and a 
young son John and daughter Agnes. John died soon after his parents, 
being killed in a naval engagement; and Agnes, the only survivor of this 
once prosperous family, was put out to service in her orphanage and 
poverty, in which condition she remained until her marriage.] 

In September, 1765, John Strong, then 27 years old, went up to the 
eastern side of Lake Champlam, to look for a home in the Vermont 
wilderness, in company with a friend who went thither on his usual hunt- 
ing excursion in the fall. He selected then the spot for a farm on 
which he afterwards lived and died, in Addison, Vt., and put up upon it 
a rude house for a home into which in February following (1766) he 
moved with his wife and three childreu : Asa, aged 6 , Samuel, aged 3 ; and 
Polly H years. Here in June following his fourth child John was born. 
This was the first house, it is aaid built by an Euglish settler, north of 
Massachusetts, and his son John was the first English child born in Ad- 
dison Co., Vt. There also his children, Electa, Luke, Chloe, Moses and 
Cyrus, were born. His wife and three children and household effect3 
were 'all abundantly accommodated in his sleigh " drawn by an old pair 
of mares." Scanty enough was his complete inventory of worldly goods. 
Their life in the woods was full of toils and adventures. The husband 
was ever busy with his axe and hoe, even while shaking with chills and 
fever, and in danger at different times, while at his work, from bears which 
were 'numerous and fierce, and from the Indians and the British. The 
wife, though of delicate form and fragile constitution, had a stout heart, 
and bravely faced the severe trials aud dangers of her pioneer life, away 
from friends, and the many comforts of cultivated society. They both 
lived to see the wilderness blossom around them as the rose, and to re- 
member their' early experiences of toil and trouble, as a far-off dream 
of sadness, with just deep enough shadows in. it, to make the brightness

of their later years all the more beautiful in the contrast. There is a 
brief biographical account of him in " The History of Addison County, 
Vt" which is full of the romance of pioneer life in the early settlement 
of this country. In June, 1777, when Burgoyne took Crown Point, his 
family fled, in his absence, from the Indians, who came with the British 
through that region, sweeping every thing before them, and burned his 
house already emptied of its inhabitants. After a long separation from 
them and search after them, he accidentally discovered them at Dorset, 
Vt., and remained there with them for several years. Here his daughter 
Mabel was born. He represented Dorset in the State legislature from 
1779 to 1782. In 1781, he was elected Asst. Judge for Bennington Co., 
and also in 1782. In 1783, he returned to Addison, to the large farm 
on which ever since some of his descendants have lived. He was an ex- 
tensive landholder. He was elected to the legislature from Addison in 
1784, 5, and 6. In 1785, he was elected first judge of the Court of Ad- 
dison Co., and in 17SG, judge of probate and member of the Council. 
These offices he held until 1801. In 1791, he was a member of the con- 
vention that ratified the Constitution of the United States. On the ad- 
mission of Vermont into the Union, in 1801, he resigned all his public 
offices. He was a member of the Cong. Ch., of Addison, and aman of liberal 
ideas and ways. He d. June 16, 1816 ; she d. March 3, 1829. In Prest. 
Dwight's " Travels in New England," vol. ii, p. 443, occurs the follow- 
ing statement concerning Major Genl. John Strong: " During the early 
periods of his residence in Addison, availing himself of the market fur- 
nished by the British garrison at Crown Point and the high prices which 
they gave for every thing supplied by his plantation, he became pos- 
sessed of very handsome property. In -the war he experienced a painful 
reverse of fortune. His house was burnt, his cattle were carried off, and 
his furniture was plundered by the British. Once he was made a prisoner 
by the Indians, in their service, and both himself and his family were 
shamefully abused. When he regained his liberty he retired to Arling- 
ton, where he took a farm upon lease and cultivated it until the year 1783. 
After the peace he returned to Addison, and by various business indus- 
triously and prudently pursued, has raised himself to affluence."

That our forefathers appreciated highly the procurement of the beat 
possible education for their daughters is well known to anyone acquainted 
with the early history of the country. Mabel Strong was sent first to 
Middlebury to school, and then on horseback 200 miles to Litchfield, Ct. 
with her brother Moses, to the boarding school of Miss Sarah Pierce,' 
which was then regarded as one of the best institutions of the kind in' 
the land. Litchfield, with its noted law school under Tapping Eeeve, 
was remarkable at that time for its many literary and social attractions'

of volunteers and was elected its captain April 19, 1861 (Co. E, 21st 
Regt. N. Y.. Vols.), and was commissioned its captain May 7, 1861 : pro- 
moted to the Lt. Colonelcy of the 38th N. Y. Vols., Dec' 17, 1861, and

the battle of Williamsburgh, Va., May 5, 1862 ; first in the right hand 
soon after entering the conflict and afterwards by a Minie ball passing 
through his right hip just at the close of the battle after nearly three 
hours°engagement. This last wound has crippled him for life, shortening 
his righMeg three inches and making his hip stiff, the ball having passed 
directly through the joint, tearing it to pieces and paralyzing partially 
the entire right side. He was the second mounted officer who went over 
the rebel works at Yorktown, Va. In -the official report made by Gen. 
D. B. Birney of the battle at Williamsburgh, Va., Lt. Col. James C 
Strong is said to « deserve especial mention for his bravery and gallant 
conduct during the battle." He was afterwards military commandant of 
the post at Chicago and at Philadelphia. His wounds disabled him after 
returning to Buffalo from pursuing the sedentary life demanded by his 
profession ; and he was appointed Assessor of Internal Revenue for the 
30th N. Y. District April 20, 1S67, which office he held for two years 
residing at Buffalo. From a brief genealogical record compiled by him, 
some years ago, of his own ancestors aud immediate relatives the author 
has derived many facts and dates of value especially concerning the 
descendants of Col. Adunijah Stroug of Salisbury. Children :

to me more precious than wealth or fame. It i3 our joy and rejoicing 
that we are the offspring of the righteous. Nothing has ever occurred in 
our line of the family to make me blush to own myself a Strong.

Stroug and Mary Sheldon in early life with the expectation though not 
the pledge of marriage. On Feb. 29, 1704-5, she was carried into 
Canada as a prisoner by the French aud Indians. When after an absence 
of two or three years she was restored to her home, her first question was 
whether Jonathan Strong was married. As her return was deemed very 
uncertain he had courted and married another. She also soon married.

other, he being 79 years old and she 75.
