Lyman) b. Jan. 9, 1745, grad. at Harvard in 1764, m. Nov. 20, 1777, 
Sarah Hooker b. Jan. 30, 1758 (dau. of llev. John Hooker of North- 
hampton and Sarah "Worthington, sister of the distinguished Col. John 
"Worthington of Springfield, Mass.). He d. suddenly of angina pectoris, 
Nov. 7, 1819, aged 74 : she d. Feb. 12, 1817, aged 59. He studied law 
with Major Joseph Hawley of Northampton and was very assiduous in the 
pursuit of his profession : county attorney 24 years (1776-1800) : mem- 
ber of the convention for forming the state constitution of Massachusetts, 
and one of the committee that drew up that instrument which re- 
mained for forty years the fundamental law of the state, and was then 
but slightly modified by the convention elected to revise and improve it 
wherever it seemed desirable after so long a period. In 1780, he was 
chosen state senator and every year afterwards chosen anew until 1789. 
In 1787, he was elected a delegate to the convention which formed the 
present Constitution of the United States. He was U. S. Senator in the 
First Congress (1788-94), and again (1794-1S00), but resigned his 
seat before the expiration of the second term of office. He was one of 
the committee that drew the Judiciary Act. He seemed to be more fond 
of cpuiet private life than of public life, to which however he was con- 
tinually recalled by his trusting and admiring fellow citizens. In 1800, 
he was chosen Governor of Massachusetts. Although party feeling then 
ran high, and t; federal" and " democrat " were words of a very positive 
sense, so much was he revered where he was best known, that not a single 
vote was cast against him in seven or eight towns of which Northampton 
was the centre. In 1810, he was nominated to the same office, and re- 
fused the nomination until after it was persistently and earnestly urged 
upon his acceptance, as he did not relish the excitement and tumult of 
stormy political life. He was a man of a gentle spirit, simple in his 
tastes and manners, frugal, modest, prudent, discreet, contented and al- 
together domestic in his habits. He was never charged with ambitious 
views. As early as 1772, he was a professing Christian, and acted plainly 
under the sense of religious obligation, and sought the praise of God 
rather than that of men. He was a pillar in the church at Northampton, 
and for many years Prest. of the Hampshire Co. Missionary Society and 
of the Hampshire Bible Society. In the later years of his life he was 
much given to the study of the Scriptures and of theological works. 
Time grew less and eternity ever more in his thoughts. In private life 
he was affable and attractive. He had those magnetic qualities of charac- 



1188 Descendants of Elder Ebenezer Strong, Son of 

ter which with his integrity, simplicity and dignity drew all eyes and 
hearts to him. As a counsellor and an advocate alike he was a man of 
power. When in the war of IS 12, Gov. Strong (aged 07) was required 
under the authority of the President of the United States (Prest. Madi- 
son), to order out a detachment of militia, to be placed under the com- 
mand of Gen. Dearborn of the U. S. A., he hesitated to comply with the 
requisition and after asking the Justices of tbe Supreme Court of Massa- 
chusetts for their official opinion of his rights and duties, he declined to do 
so and was sustained in the ground that he took by all the other departments 
of the state Government and by three-fourths of the people. At the same 
time he put the whole military force of the state in array against the 
British and left the management of its defenses to a very able military 
officer Gen. Brooks, afterwards Gov. Brooks. He was doubtless over- 
zealous for states' rights, but his conscientiousness and firmness of charac- 
ter as a statesman and a politician, are strikingly manifest in this transac- 
tion." The design, as he and the Massachusetts people conceived, in 
placing the proposed militia force under Gen. Dearborn was to throw 
them as an invading force upon Canada, by which use of them the power 
'of the state to defend her own extended coast-line would also be greatly 
weakened. He sympathized accordingly with the Hartford Convention, 
and was active in procuring its existence, but with the idea, in his own 
lan^ua^e. that " such men as New England would select to represent her 
on that occasion would never forget for a moment their duties to the Gene- 
ral government. He was no secessionist in feeling. While his enemies 
charged him with seeking to embarrass the executive of the U. S. govern- 
ment and with being a violent partizan, his friends were almost disposed 
to quarrel with him for his want of positive partizanship as a politician. 
He was a moderate Calvinist in his religious views, and was liberal in his 
sympathies towards those who did not see divine truth in all its angles 
and aspects exactly as he himself did. His gubernatorial addresses to 
the Legislature of Massachusetts have been collected into a volume, and 
are fine specimens of profound thought presented in such clear trans- 
parent forms of expression as to deserve the designation of " choice 
English." Gov. Strong was of medium height, erect, of a compact frame 
and°graceful carriage. His wife, with whom he lived in wedlock for 40 
years was a lady of pleasing aspect, strong good sense, fervent piety and re- 
markable sweetness of disposition. Their home was full of sunshine and, 
of the peace and presence of God.

1250 Descendants of Elder Ebenezer Strong, Son of 

the Cong. Ch., of South Egremont, Mass., for nearly 24 years (June 23, 
1770, April 29, 1794). The church consisted of six members at its 
formation and sixty were added to it during his ministry. In the Shays' 
rebellion he and most of his church took sides with the government, 
while those without favored the rebels. So great was the feud engendered 
that the pastor resigned his post and the church was entirely broken up; 
and the sanctuary was closed and for 15 years (1795-1810) there was no 
public worship of God in the place. In 1795, he was installed over the 
Cong. Ch., at Paris Hill, Oneida Co., N. Y., containing at the time but 
19 members, to which 273 additions were made by letter and profession 
during his ministry. He was a clear, strong thinker and " very orthodox," 
a man of ardent piety and somewhat eccentric both in the pulpit and out 
of it. His wife Elizabeth d. in Egremont, Feb. 4, 1793, aged 44. He 
m. for a 2d wife Feb. 1797, Mrs. Chloe Chapman of Hartford, Ct, nie 
Flint b. in 1747 : a lady of singular features but of superior mind, to

Rosa Island, during which time Pensacola, the Navy Yard, etc., were re- 
covered from the enemy. He was for five mouths Judge Advocate at 
Pensacola of General Courts Martial, aud was afterwards ordered by 
General Butler to New Orleans, and remained in the dcoartment of the 
gulf until discharged. He took an active part in the Teche campaigns, 
and at the battle of Camp Bisland, one of the hardest artillery fights of 
the war, he was severely wounded by the burstiug of a shell. While 
being carried from the field, he was captured by a squad of rebel cavalry. 
Unable to walk he was placed upon a horse and ordered to the rear ; but 
not fancying such a position he plunged his spurs into the flanks of his 
steed, and amid a shower of pistol shots dashed for our liues, which he 
reached in safety. Upon reporting the location, and number of the rebel 
cavalry, he had the pleasure of seeing a squadron of our troops sent after 
them, which soon captured the entire force. He was confiued for three

[In 1369, Sir Neil Campbell of Lockawe, Argyleshire, chief of the 
powerful clan of Campbell, married the sister of Robert Bruce, and from 
them the Campbells of Argyleshire descended. Duncan Campbell, 
grandson of Sir Niel, the founder of the clan of the Campbells of Inver- 
awe, assumed, according to a Highland custom the name of Donachie or 
" The Macdonachie," that is, " the son of Duncan," his father's name. 
Some of his descendants dropped the name of Campbell, and others took 
the patronymic Maconochie which is spelled variously afterwards in the 
acts of parliament and in old title deeds, Maconochy, McConahy and Mc- 
Couihe. In 1GG1, Maconochy of Inverawe was secoud in command iu 
the Earl of Argyle's army against the reigning house of Stuart. In the 
same year his estate and family titles were attainted and sold by the crown : 
but in 1668, after the Revolution, the attainder of the Earl of Argyle and 
of his adherents was reversed and -Maconochy of Inverawe was paid by 
the government for his lost estate there, and he purchased with the money 
given him the estate ever since held by his family called Meadowbaok in 
Mid-Lothian. The present -chief or representative of the clan of the 
ancient line of Campbells and Maconochiea is Alexander Maconochie, 
with the title of Lord Meadowbank, residing on his estate near Edinburgh.]

him the author is indebted for the full and fine account 
here rendered of the descendants of Ezra Strong of 
Westtield, Mass., and Mary King. No one has spent 
time or money more freely than he has, for the purpose 
of doing the most complete justice possible to the his- 
.' t'ory of his special branch of the family. In early life 
he kept a nursery in Rochester (1830-8) which was 
the first one established there and has been known for 
many years as " Elwanger and Barry's." He then be- 
came manager of two large flouring mills at Penfield, 
near Rochester (1838-45). For 27 years past he has 
been engaged in managing his personal estate at Ro- 
chester. He was a member of the recent Constitutional 
Convention of the State and is President of a Savings- 
Bank at Rochester. He owned at one time 300 acres 
of what is now the city of Rochester.

former business. He had been an active and influential democrat in his 
politics, but at the breaking out of the late war threw hia whole heart 
into the issue, and, by public speeches and untiring exertions, did muoh 
to fire the hearts of his fellow merchants, with his own zeal. His own 
life and fortune he cast at once into the balance. He received from 
Prest. Lincoln, the commission of brigadier general, and was put in 
charge of Cairo, 111., as its military commander. His health was so bro- 
ken in the end, by long and severe service, that he was forced to abandon 
the life of a soldier, and, after his return to the city, he was thrown from 
his carriage while riding in Central Park, aud became paralyzed for life 
and died from the effects of this injury, March 15, 1S6S. He was for 
many years Prest, of the Bank of North America, in New York, and wa3 
a member of the Board of Commerce. He was a member of the Episco- 
pal church (St. George's), and "an earnest, unostentatious and benevolent 
man."

different generations with the dates of their births, but not also their 
residences and occupations. Such a dry list of mere names seems to him 
as uninteresting, as would several columns of names in a city directory. 
Needing all the room that he can obtain for other more valuable details, ho 
therefore purposely suppresses for the present the facts of such a sort 
that he has gathered.

The Bakers and Chirks maintained a regular family prayer meeting for 
a great number of years, at Northampton, and their families were, in 
their earlier generations, at least, remarkable for their devoted piety. Of 
the children of Capt John Baker, it is said, that they all stood forth 
through life as prominent Christian men and women, and filled full their 
measure of usefulness. The sons were large and tall, from six feet up- 
wards in height, large framed and powerful. The six brothers whose 
ages are known averaged upwards of eighty-two years each." They are 
thus described by one of the family who saw them iu their advanced age 
when herself quite young — " they all wore big curly wigs and were a 
jolly set of men, being then from 70 to 83 years of age : they were affec- 
tionate towards each other and very devoted to religion." They kept up 
the habit of frequent mutual visits with each other until death bore them 
all to the better society above. 

Of the hi?torv of the Biker branch of the Clark and so of the Strong 
family the author has not been able to learn anything beyond what is con- 
tained in the brief " -Genealogy of the descendants of Edward Baker of 
Lynn. Mass.," by Nelson M. Baker of Lafayette. N. V. Syracuse, 1867.

DESCENDANTS OF JOHN STRONG (SON OF THOMAS), A CARPENTER 
AT BRIDGEHAMPTON, L. I. 

[His descendants only know that his father's name was Thomas, but 
where he lived and whom he married they do not seem to know at all. 
They have the idea that he came from Wales, which is probably a tradi- 
tional fragment of the ancestral origin of Elder John Strong, the founder 
of the American Family of Strongs.]

penter. John d. May 28, 1809, aged S2 ; she d. July 25, 1811. aged 81.

he did at Flatbush, N. Y. He has been engaged for some years prist in 
editing the Bible Cyclopedia. Rev. Dr. McClintock of New York was 
for some years previously to his death associated with him in that great 
scholarly undertaking, lie writes that " his father died when he waa 
but four years old and that as no communication had been kept up with 
hi3 father's relatives in England he knows nothing of their history past 
or present. His father's family was located, he thinks in London or its 
vicinity." He gave no account of his own personal family. His father 
had, he said, two brothers, John and James.

" My grandfather was born in Cork, Ireland, but of English descent, was 
a Presbyterian, and an intense hater of popery. He claimed descent from 
some of the conquerors of Ireland, who came thither after the London- 
derry massacre. He was a merchant before coming to America. He 
was six feet two in height and his sons were each six feet high. I am 
proud that he was wise and just enough to implant the hatred of wrong 
in the minds of his children so deeply, that they could not forget it and 
left the love of liberty as a legacy to his posterity. We have all managed 
to live comfortably, none of us have been convicts or paupers. I was 
never sued for a dollar, nor did I ever sue any one, preferring to lose what 
i3 due to goto law with any one. None of us who bear the ancestral name 
have been given to strong drink, but are teetotalers, all of us."

There is also a family of Strongs at Albany, N. Y., of whom are Rev. 
Robert Strong, Episcopal, of that place, and William Strong, his brother, 
a merchant there, whose father came to this country in the latter part of

does not find as he pens this, at the last moment, having put it away 
somewhere so carefully, as to hide it even from his own hands.
