The present volume is the result of labors instituted by Ebenezer 
Mack Treman and carried on for some time during the years 1893-4, 
and partially abandoned for several years, owing to the pressure of 
business duties, to be finally revived in 1901, and carried to a suc- 
cessful conclusion, with the assistance of Murray E. Poole. The 
latter can not refrain, in this connection, from expressing to the 
former his sincere thanks for the encouragement which he has ever 
received in the prosecution of the w^ork, and desires further to bear 
testimony to his colleague's strong love of family and pride in its 
achievements and to his public spirit and generosity in providing 
this family memorial. An earnest, and we hope successful, attempt 
has been made to gather together, in this volume, the widely scattered 
family records. As the years go by they will become more and more 
valuable. It is hoped that the members of the family will take great 
care in preserving family records. If this work brings the various 
members of the family into closer communication, one of its objects 
will be attained. Its value as a contribution to local history must 
necessarily be great, while it is an authentic record which may some 
time prove of great value in enabling some member of the family to 
establish his right in the courts of law to an inheritance, or before 
the Interior Department to a pension for war service, or to prove 
eligibility to membership in the hereditary patriotic societies. Gene- 
alogy, once interesting to a few, has become a popular study. In the 
early days of few newspapers and with books seldom indexed, one

would seldom meet, in print, his family name ; nowadays the news- 
papers print long lists of names of individuals and a book of an his- 
torical character without an index is a rarit}'. Historical, biographical 
and directory publishing companies also provide many sources of 
genealogical information. The plan of this book is so simple as to 
need no explanation. The price is placed at actual cost. 

If any mistakes occur, and it is almost impossible to prevent them, 
in the thousands of names and dates, it is hoped that they will be 
reported for correction in some future edition. If any names have 
been omitted, it is regretted, as an effort was made to include every 
person bearing the family name or related to the family by intermar- 
riage. We desire especially to thank those who have furnished

The Treman, Tremaine, Truman family is of Norman origin. 
The first ancestor of the family in England came over from France 
with William the Conqueror. The original family name Tremayne, 
meaning three hands, was of Norman origin. The meaning of the 
name was lost and then from losing its meaning it gradually became 
converted into another name that had another meaning. This was 
not a very unusual occurrence in family names and can not be 
explained philologically. The change came by modification and use. 
The first of the name of whom we have any knowledge was Perys 
Tremayne who resided in Cornwall, England, in the reign of 
Edward III. (1312-1377.) His descendants were seated in Corn- 
wall for many generations. There is an old saying "By Tre, Pol and 
Pen, you may know the Cornish men." The first of the family 
bearing a different name, of whom we have any knowledge, was 
Rev. Henry Trewman, instituted rector of Cromwell, Nottingham- 
shire, England, July 27, 1635. His successor was Rev. Joseph Tru- 
man, D. D. The meaning of this name was, obviously, true man. 
An explanation of the change of name is found in the original pro- 
nounciation of the names Tremayne and Truman, the letter "u" in 
Truman having the sound of French "u" which is the sound of 
English "e", showing that the two names sounded very much alike. 
The Anglo-Saxons spelled the name Troewman, meanmg wood-man-. 
In America the name appears Treman, Tremaine and Truman. As 
illustrating how families re-adopt the old name it may be mentioned 
that many of the grandsons of Joseph Truman, the first American 
ancestor, remembering the family tradition that the old family name 
was Tremayne, adopted the old name Tremaine, as the name was 
spelled Tremayne and Tremaine in the olden time in England.

From the manor of Tremayne in the parish of St. Martin, on 
the banks of Helford Haven, this family derived, at a verj' remote 
period, its designation. In the reign of Edward III. (13 12-1377), 
Perys Tremayne was there resident. By his wife. Dame Opre Tres- 
kewys, he was father of 

John Tremayne, to whom, having no issue himself, s. his brother,

father of

Tremayne. He m. Isabella, dau. and sole heir of Trenchard of 
Collacombe, and removed in consequence to that estate, where his 
descendants flourished for more than three centuries. Isabella 
Trenchard, surviving her husband, remarried with Sir John Damerell. 

Thomas Tremayne was s. by his elder son.

the Lady Elizabeth (afterwards Queen of England, of glorious 
memory) were committed to the Tower in Queen Mary's days, upon 
an accusation of being privy to Wyat's conspiracy, Mr. Edmund 
Tremayne was set on the rack, thereby to extort from him a confession 
of their guilt (prisoners were oft examined about her, and some were 
put to the rack to try if they could be brought to accuse that lady),

resolution, he was, upon the Lady Elizabeth's advancement to the

tion, to seek an asylum in Germany, having been deprived of his 
fellowship. Upon the elevation of Elizabeth to the throne, he 
returned from exile, and, visiting his college, had the honour of 
receiving both degrees of divinity at once, on 15 Feb., 1565. Dr. 
Tremayne subsequently removed to Gates Hall, and thence passed 
within a short period into his own county, being instituted Canon 
Residentiary of St. Peter's, Exeter, and Treasurer of that church.

^'In the parish of Lamerton, three miles from Tavistock, is Colla- 
combe, an old house that for generations was the seat of the Tre- 
maines (in their origin a Cornish family). Before the marriage Col. 
Arthur Tremaine with Bridget Hatherleigh induced them to remove 
to the more splendid mansion of Sydenham. When we visited the 
church we were much pleased with viewing the old monuments there 
existing of the family of Tremaine. But before I speak of the twin 
brothers I must say a few words of their father and family. Our 
great ancestors in the reign of Richard IL founded an hospital at 
the west end of the town of Tavistock and dedicated it to St. George. 

Thomas Tremaine, the parent of the twins, had eight sons and 
as many daughters. Edmund, the second son, was the devoted fol- 
lower of Ekiward, Earl of Devon and Marquis of Exeter, and suffered 
severely by his unshaken attachment to that nobleman during his 
many troubles. He was by order of Queen Marj^ racked in the 
Tower of London in the hope he would reveal enough to prove the. 
guilt of the Marquis, but no torture could compel him to accuse the 
innocent or betray the confidences of his friend. The Queen did 
not forget the fidelity he had evinced under such a cruel test, as on 
her accession to the throne she rewarded Edmund by making him 
one of the Clerks of the Privy Council. 

The family of Tremaines is of ancient standing. Their arms 
consist of three united arms with clinched hands, and two hands 
above support a Saracen's head as the crest. 

14 History of the Treman Family. 

The hall window of Collacombe House has 3545 small panes of 
glass in it. 

We visited the interesting old house of Sydenham commenced in 
the time of Elizabeth and finished in that of James I. The mansion 
is built in the shape of the letter E. One of the gables has been 
despoiled of its beautiful old windows and common modern ones put 
in — supposed to have been the whim of a certain old Mr. Tremaine, 
the father of the late possessor of Sydenham, who was born in 1708 
and died in 1808. 

Sydenham was garrisoned for King Charles and taken by the 
parliamentary forces in January, 1645. 

Among the pictures in one of the apartments was the sister of 
the former Mr. St. John, who acted in concert with Hampden and 
Pymir during the rebellion. This lady was by marriage connected 
with the family of Tremaine. Over the chininey piece is the portrait 
of the gallant Col. Arthur Tremaine who lived to see the monarchy 
for which he fought and bled restored, and to wed with fair mistress 
Bridget Hatherleigh, who at that period had become for want of male 
issue the heiress of Sydenham. Bridget was grand-daughter of Sir 
Thomas Wise and by her marriage with the brave Col., the house 
and lands of Sydenham came to the family of Tremaine. Mr. Tre- 
maine, the present worthy and respected proprietor, does not often 
reside in this princely but decaying mansion. He inherited it by will 
from the last old gentleman dying unmarried, who, though he had 
never seen him, left it on account of his being the same name and 
being the younger branch of the family with whom, however, he had 
kept up no communication. 

Nicholas and Andrew Tremaine were twin sons of the afore 
named Thomas Tremaine, born at Collacombe House in Lamerton. 
They were of such close resemblance in feature and gesture that they 
could not be known the one from the other by their own parents or 
friends. They wore a knot of colored ribbons to distinguish them. 
In 1563 they bore arms among the English forces sent into France, 
the one as Captain of Horse, the other as a volunteer. In one of 
the engagements near Newhaven, now Havre de Grace, they stood 
side by side. At last one fell and the other immediately took his 
place and shared his brother's fate. 

The monument in Lamberton Church is that of their family. 

The Tremayxe Family in England. 15 

The following epitaph on Nicholas and Andrew appears inscribed on 
a tablet of marble with several rude rhymes to the memory of the 
same race: 

These likened twins in form and fancy one, 
Were like affected and like habits chose. 
Their valor at Newhaven seige was known, 
When both encountered fiercely with their foes. 
Then one of both sore w'ounded lost his breath, 
And t'other slain revenging brother's death." 

The Tremaynes are said to come from Sydenham. (This is

There is now no parish of St. Martin on the banks of Helford

(From Moore's View of Devonshire.) 


The ancient family of Tremayne, originally of Cornwall, settled 

in Devonshire in consequence of a marriage with the heiress of 

Trenchard of CoUacombe in the parish of Lamerton, where for many 

generations was the chief seat of the family. 

The mansion, now used as a farmhouse, is of the style of the 
Elizabethan age, and in the parish church are some of their

It is impossible here to enter into genealogical details and for 
these we must refer to Prince, nor can we do more than briefly notice 
the most distinguished individuals. 

Wescot, in his manuscript View of Devonshire, informs us that 
one of this ancient family, whose Christian name he does not men- 
tion, found-ed an hospital in the western part of Tavistock in the 
reign of Richard II. and dedicated it to St. George. 

But the most remarkable instances of distinguished individuals 
occur in the family of Thomas Tremayne, Esq., who had sixteen 
children, eight sons and eight daughters by his wife Philippa, who 
twice had twins. Their second son, Edmund, was servant to the 
Marquis of Exeter, when he was thrown into the Tower, and was put 
on the rack, with the view of extorting from him some confession ; 
nothing, however, was elicited from him ; and for his firmness on this 
occasion, when Elizabeth came to the throne he was made one of the 
Clerks of the Council. He also had an honorary salary settled upon 
him by the city of Exeter, for the good offices which they had 
received from him, and expected. 

Richard, the fourth son and eldest of the first twins, was edu- 
cated for the church at Exeter College, Oxford, and being deprived 
of his fellowship there, on account of his firm attachment to Protestant 
principles in the reign of Mary, he fled into Germany, but on the 
accession of Elizabeth, he returned to his college, where he received 
both his degrees in divinity at once. He was afterwards made Canon 
residentiary of Exeter Cathedral and also Treasurer of that church. 
He likewise became Vicar of Menheniot in Cornwall, and was 
esteemed an excellent preacher in his time. He died without issue 
in 1584. 

Nicholas and Andrew were the second twins, then follows 
account of their similarity and death at Newhaven (Havre de Grace). 

The most remarkable monument in Lamerton Church of the 
Tremayne family is that of Thomas Tremayne, wife Philippa and 
sixteen children.*

(From Dictionary of Nation.\l Biography.) 

Edmund Tremayne (d. 1582), Clerk of the Privy Council, was 
second son of Thomas Tremayne, of Collacombe, Lamerton, Devon- 
shire, where the Devonshire branch of this old Cornish family had 
been established since 1366. His mother was Philippi, eldest 
daughter of Roger Grenville, of Stowe. Of this marriage were born 
sixteen children, of whom four — Edmund, Richard and the twins, 
Nicholas and Andrew — acquired some reputation. The twins 
Andrew and Nicholas were strikingly alike, physically and mentally. 
The elder, Andrew, fled with Sir Peter Carew, on 25 Jan., 1554, and 
both were imprisoned on suspicion of piracy on 24 Feb., 1555, but 
escaped to France where they were pensioned by the French King. 
They were also implicated in the Sir Anthony Kingston plot in 1556. 
After Elizabeth's accession they entered her service. Andrew led a 
brilliant cavalry charge against the French at Leith in April, 1560, 
and was killed at Newhaven (Havre) on 18 July, 1562. Nicholas, 
who seems to have been a special favourite of Elizabeth, w-as fre-

quently employed in carrying important despatches between France 
and England, and distinguished himself at the siege of Newhaven 
where he was killed on 26 May, 1562. Edmund entered the service 
of Edward Courtenay, Earl of Devonshire, in the autumn of 1553, 
but was committed to the Tower in February or March following, on 
suspicion of being concerned in Wyatt's rebellion. He was racked 
during the time Elizabeth was a prisoner in the Tower (Fox) but 
would not implicate her or Courtenay, his master. On Friday, 18 
Jan., 1855, h^ was released with Sir Gawen Carew, the three sons of 
the late Duke of Northumberland and others. His fine (40 1.), was 
the lowest enforced. Tremayne seems to have joined Courtenay in 
Italy. Courtenay wrote from Venice on 2 May, 1556, "I am sorry 
for Tremayne's foolish departure, albeit satisfied and content there- 
with as he shall well perceive, but I trust the cause thereof will prove 
as you have written." This probably means that the Earl thought it 
foolish of Tremayne to leave England and lay himself open to a 
charge of treason. Courtenay died at Padua on 18 Sept., 1556, and 
it is possible that Tremayne entered the service of Francis, Earl of 
Bedford, who was in Venice in 1557. The appointment he received 
in 1 56 1 of Deputy Butler for Devonshire must have been through the 
influence of the Earl of Bedford, then lord lieutenant of Devonshire. 
Tremayne spent some time at Elizabeth's court, and Burghley thought 
so highly of him that in July, 1569, he sent him on a special mission 
to Ireland, "to examine into the truth and let him know^ quietly the 
real condition of the country." Tremayne remained in Ireland until 
the close of 1569, writing frequently to Cecil on Irish affairs. On 3 
May, 157 1, he was sworn clerk of the Privy Council at Westminster. 
He wrote in June a paper entitled "Causes why Ireland is not 
Reformed," which was endorsed by Burghley with the words, "a 
good advice." Tremayne was returned M. P. for Plymouth (1572) 
with John Hawkyns. In June he drew up, with Lord Burghley, an 
important document, "Matters wherewith the Queen of Scots may be 
charged," from which Burghley's signature was afterwards erased. 
Tremayne succeeded to the family estates on his elder brother's 
death on 13 March, 1572. He still maintained a special interest in 
Irish affairs, and revisited the country late in 1573. (See "Instructions 
given to Mr. E. Tremayne upon his being sent to the Lord Deputy of 
Ireland by the Lord Treasurer," 1573. in Lambeth MSS.) The

City of Exeter granted Tremayne in 1574 a reversion to Sir Gawen 
Carew's pension of 40 I. "in reward of their good services done this 
city." (Isaacke.) Carew outlived Tremayne, so the latter never 
benefited by the grant. The family mansion of CoUacombe was 
altered and enlarged by him; the date 1574 still appears with the 
family arms and those of his royal mistress in the great hall. Tre- 
mayne was in 1578 senior of the four clerks to the Privy Council, 
but he chiefly resided in Devonshire, where he acted as commissioner 
for the restraint of grain and held other local offices. On 24 Oct., 
1580, the Queen wrote from Richmond commanding him to assist 
Francis Drake in sending to London bullion brought into the realm 
by Drake, but leaving ten thousand pounds' worth in Drake's hands. 
This last instruction "to be kept most secret to himself alone.'' Tre- 
mayne made his will 17 Sept., 1582. The Earl of Bedford wrote to 
announce his death to Burghley a few days later. Burghley, in reply, 
described Tremayne as "a man worthy to be beloved for his honesty 
and virtues." In September, 1576, he married Eulalia, daughter of 
Sir John St. Leger of Annery. A son Francis, named after Tre- 
mayne's "Good Lord" Bedford, lived for only six weeks after his 
father, and at his death the estates passed to Degory, Edmund's 
third brother. Degory erected in 1588 a fine monument to his five 
brothers, Roger, Edmund, Richard and the twins, with their effigies 
well modelled and lifelike. Edmund appears as an elderly man w'ith 
a refined and thoughtful face. Tremayne's "Discourses on Irish 
Affairs" remain unprinted among the Cottonian manuscripts at the 
British Museum. 

Richard Tremayne (d. 1584), younger brother of Edmund, was 
fourth son (the younger of twins) of Thomas Tremavne. He was 
sent to Exeter College, Oxford, where he graduated B. A. in 1547-8. 
He was elected a fellow on March 28, 1553, and proceeded M. A. on 
July 17. He vacated his fellowship by flying to Germany in the first 
year of Mary's reign. On his epitaph he is stated to have "fled for 
the gospel's sake." He was at Louvain on Nov. 16, 1555, acting as 
tutor to Sir Nicholas Arnold's son. He was reckoned among the 
conspirators against the Queen, and on April 4, 1556, was declared a 
traitor with his brother Nicholas and others who were concerned in 
Sir Anthony Kingston's plot. Tremayne returned to England very 
soon after Elizabeth's accession, and was favourably regarded at 

22 History of the Treman Family. 

court. He was made Archdeacon of Chichester by Elizabeth on 
April 7, 1559. Cecil had some correspondence with Sir Nicholas 
Throckmorton, ambassador in France, regarding Tremayne's employ- 
ment in the diplomatic service, "he having the high Dutch tongue 
very well." But he stayed at home, and was ordained deacon by 
Grindal, Bishop of London, on Jan. 25, 1560. He had been re- 
elected fellow of his college on Oct. 17, 1559, but vacated his fellow- 
ship by absence the ensuing May. He was also presented by the 
college to the vicarage of Menheniot (Carew), and was installed 
treasurer of Exeter Cathedral on Feb. 10, 1560, For reasons not 
stated in the "Bishop's Register" he was deprived of his treasurer- 
ship, but re-installed on Oct. 27, 1561, and held the office until his 
death. He became rector of Uoddiscombleigh on Jan. 15, 1561, 
holding the living until 1564, when he resigned. Tremayne was 
something of a puritan. He sat in convocation as proctor for the 
clergy of Exeter, and signed the Canons establishing the Thirty-nine 
Articles. On Feb. 13 he spoke, and gave his two votes in favor of 
sweeping alterations in the Book of Common Prayer. He was 
elected fellow of Broadgate's Hall (afterwards Pembroke College), 
Oxford, on Feb. 20, 1565. On Feb. 15, 1566, he took the degree of 
B.D., proceeding D.D. on April 26. He became rector of Combe- 
Martin in 1569, and the Earl of Bedford vainly recommended him 
on July 23, 1570, to Cecil for the vacant bishopric of Exeter. Tre- 
mayne was buried on Nov. 30, 1584, at Lamerton, and his will proved 
on Dec. 15 at Exeter, On Sept. 19, 1569, he married Joanna, 
daughter of Sir Piers Courtenay of Ugbrooke. His only child, Mary, 
married Thomas Henslowe. He gave to Exeter College a copy of 
the polyglot Bibles in eight volumes, printed by Christopher Plantin 
at Antwerp, 1569-72, at the command of Philip H. 

Sir John Tremayne or Tremaine (d. 1694), lawyer, eldest son of 
Lewis Tremayne, Lieutenant Governor of Pendennis Castle, who 
married Mary, daughter and co-heiress of John Carew of Penwarne 
in Mevagissey, was born in the parish of St. Ewe, Cornwall. He 
was brought up to the study of the law, by 1678 was a man to be 
consulted, and soon acquired considerable practice. His name fre- 
quently occurs in cases before the House of Lords from 1689 to 
1693 ; he was counsel for the crown against Sir Richard Graham, 
otherwise Lord Preston, and others for high treason, January 1690-1,

was engaged for Sir John Germaine in the action brought against 
that adventurer by the Duke of Norfolk for adultery with the 
duchess, and he acted for the Crown on the trial of Lord Mohun, a 
brother Cornishman, for the murder of Mountford, the actor, January, 
1693. Tremayne was called with others to be Sergeant-at-law on 
May I, 1689, was made King's sergeant, and next day took the oaths, 
when he and his colleagues entertained the "nobility, judges, ser- 
geants, and others with a dinner at Sergeant's Inn in Fleet Street," 
London. He was Knighted at Whitehall on Oct. 31, 1689, and in 
1690 was returned to Parliament for the Cornish borough of Tre- 
gony. In June, 1692, he was a candidate for the recordership of 
London, but was beaten at the poll. It is recorded by Luttrell on 
Feb. 20, 1694, that Tremayne was dead. He died issueless. His 
brother's descendant now lives at Heligan, near Mevagissey (where 
the Sergeant rebuilt the family mansion), and inherits the ample 
estates in Cornwall and Devon. His useful volume, "Placita Coronae 
or Pleas of the Crown in matters Criminal and Civil," was pubUshed 
in 1723, many years after his death, when it had been "digested and 
revised by the late Mr. John Rice of Furnival's Inn." An English 
translation by Thomas Vickers came out in two volumes at Dublin in 
1793. A collection by Tremayne of "Entries, declarations and 
pleadings" in the reigns of Charles II. and James II., numbering in 
all 182 pages, is at the- British Museum. 

Joseph Truman (1631-1671), ejected minister and metaphysi- 
cian, son of Richard and Mary Truman, was born at Gedling, near 
Nottingham, and baptized there on Feb. 2, 1631. His father, who 
held some public post in the place, got into difficulties by speaking 
disrespectfully of the "Book of Sports." Joseph was educated first 
by the minister of Gedling, and afterwards at the free school at Not- 
tingham. He was admitted a pensioner at Clare College, Cambridge, 
on June 9, 1647, proceeded B.A. in 1650, and M.A. in 1654. He 
was made rector of Cromwell near Nottingham (probably by the 
Assembly of Divines, as his name does not appear on the institution 
books), some time after Dec. 4, 1656, when the former "minister of 
Cromwell" (Henry Trewman, instituted July 27, 1635), was buried. 
The similarity in the two names (or possibly identity with a variation 
in the spelling) suggests a family connection. After the passing of

declined to read the whole of the service in the Book of Common 
Prayer, because, he said, there were "lies in it" ; to prove his asser- 
tion, he quoted the collect for Christmas Day, and pointed out that 
not only was the birth of Christ stated to have taken place that day, 
but also on the following Sunday. The collect is said to have been 
amended in consequence, but in reality it had been altered by the 
Savoy Conference in 1661. Truman's successor in the rectory was 
instituted on Nov. 3, 1662. After his ejectment he resided in Mans- 
field in order to be near his friend Robert Porter, and always attended 
the services of the established church. He refused, however, all 
offers of preferment, was frequently indicted for non-conformity, and • 
was once unsuccessfully sued to an outlawry. He died at Sutton in 
Bedfordshire on July ig, 167 1, and was buried in the chancel of the 
church there on July 21, In 1669 Truman published anonymously 
his first work, "The Great Propitiation," in which he endeavored to 
explain the Apostle Paul's theory of justification without works. He 
attached to his work (also anonymously) "A Discourse Concerning 
the Apostle Paul's meaning of 'Justification by Faith,' " in which he 
maintained that it was not intended "to exclude repentance and sin- 
cere obedience from being a condition of our justification," but that 
they were indeed included in the meaning of the word "faith." "The 
Great Propitiation" reappeared in London in 167 1, 1672, and 1843. 
On the appearance early in 1670 of Bishop Bull's "Harmonia Apos- 
tolica," Truman felt that many of his positions were seriously 
assailed, and commenced at once to write an answer in English for 
private circulation. It was, however, published anonymously under 
the title of "An Endeavour to rectify some prevailing Opinions con- 
trary to the Doctrine of the Church of England" (London, 167 1), 
Truman's main contention was the all-sufficiency of the Mosaic law, 
which, he argued, was able not only to work true sanctification in 
man, but if rightly interpreted, to insure eternal life. Interpreted as 
a law of grace, it was no type or shadow, but the very gospel itself, 
to which the Sermon on the Mount had added nothing essential, and 
which remained in force to the present day. In the same year (167 ij 
Truman, still with Bull's views in mind, published anonymously "A 
Discourse of Natural and Moral Impotency," in which he contended 
that whereas natural inability excuses from blame or guilt in propor- 
tion to its extent, moral inability aggravates it in like proportion,

consisting as it does in aversion of the will. The book was re- 
published with the writer's name in 1675 and again in 1834. Bull 
answered Truman at some length in his "Examen Censurae," pp. 
149 et seq. Truman's writings all exhibit close, subtle argumentation. 
He was a man of unusual learning and untiring diligence and industry.

Dear Sir — Your note of the 5th inst. to Mr. Greenlaw has been 
forwarded to me by him for reply, and, has just reached me at this 
place where I am detained at the deathbed of a near relative — a fact 
which must plead my excuse for a hurried and incoherent reply. 

I should be very pleased to undertake your case and use my 
best efforts to solve it for you. 

For the next two or three days my address will be as above, 
after that at my home at South Freeport, Maine, where letters will 
always reach me. 

Truman, Treeman, Tremaine, etc., are probably all variants of a 
common name and you are no doubt correct in attributing its origin 
to Cornwall, where it is well known. You are probably familiar with 
the Tremaine pedigree as given in Col. Vivian's Cornwall Visitations, 
which book, while not strictly reliable, is very useful as a guide. I 
have a good correspondent in Devonshire who can obtain Exeter 
Willis (covering Cornwall) without traveling expense from London, 
quite an item. 

Please give me all possible detail known of Joseph Truman and 
his family on which to base my quest. Do you wish detailed report 
of search or simply the sifted results of value ? 

Awaiting your further advice in the matter I remain, Sir, 

Yours faithfully, 

J. Henry Lea.

I. Joseph Truman. His ancestors lived anciently in Corn- 
wall, England. He was born in Nottinghamshire, England. He 
married in England but neither his wife's name, nor the name of her 
family, has yet been ascertained. He appeared with his wife, and 
perhaps some of his children, at New London, Conn., in 1666. In 
the following year he was chosen Constable, a position of considerable 
honor in those days. He purchased in 1667 from Alex. Piggins, and 
about 1670 from Hugh Roberts, some pits for tanning, which were 
located in a meadow near the entrance of Cape Ann Lane. Truman 
Brook and Truman Street are named after him and his family. He 
had two tanneries, one at each end of this street on Truman Brook, 
The brook ran into Bream Cove near the Hempstead lot. He 
appears as plaintiff in law suits in Oct., 1682; May, 1683; Oct., 
1683, and May, 1685. He died in 1697 at New London, Conn. In 
his will, executed m Sept., 1696, he mentions four children, Joseph, 
Thomas, Elizabeth and Mary, his daughter Ann having died before 
the will was made. In a note-book, now in the possession of Lucy 
E. Greene of Denver, Col., which was owned by her great-grand- 
father, Jonathan Truman, appears the following entry in 1822 : 
"Jonathan Truman, owner of this book, is the son of Jonathan Tru- 
man, born at New London, June 25, 1730. He was the son of 
Thomas Truman who was also born at New London. His father 
who was named Joseph, came to America from England (Notting- 
hamshire), in company with a brother who settled in Virginia. He 
left at New London two sons, Joseph and Thomas, and a number of 
daughters. Public Records of the Colony of Connecticut say :

shillings and sixpence, the execution being levyed upon two

sixteen years, he enlisted Sept. 5, 1777, as a private soldier in Cap- 
tain Aaron Rowley's Company of Col. John Brown's Mass. Reg't., 
serving 24 days, at northward of Pawlet, and was honorably discharged 
Sept. 29, 1777. After his removal to New York State he joined the 
Second Regiment of the Line, commanded by Colonel Philip Van 
Cortlandt of New York, and was assigned to the Fifth Company 
where he served till the close of the War. He was one of the picked 
company selected by Washington himself to accompany Gen. Anthony 
Wayne in his hazardous and successful attack on Stony Point. He 
was one of the advanced guard under Lieutenant Gibbon, a forlorn 
hope, in which he acquitted himself as a cautious and brave soldier 
in an extremely dangerous service. He also accompanied that brill- 
iant young Irishman to whom due credit has never been given, Gen. 
John Sullivan, with over one-third of the Continental Army, in his 
Indian Expedition in 1779, to punish the Six Nations. He was 
successively Corporal, Sergeant and Sergeant Major. He was also 
honored with a Badge of Merit. He served five years and two 
months, and after his death his widow applied, Feb. 16, 1839, for a 
pension which was granted. He received for his war services six 
hundred acres of land, located in what was then the County of 
Herkimer. This land is now in part occupied by the Village of 
Trumansburg, N. Y. It was named after the family and was once 
called "Tremaine's Village" but in making out his commission as 
Post Master the name of the place was misspelled "Trumansburg" 
and so it has remained. He came in 1792, with his wife, three 
children, his brother Philip and Philip's son Benjamin, and his wife's 
brother, John McLallen, with his bounty warrant and took possession 
of his land. He immediately commenced clearing up his land and 
in 1794 built a grist mill procuring the necessary machinery from 
Chenango Point, now Binghamton, N. Y. It was on his homeward 
journey that he froze his feet so that one of them had to be amputated. 
He built his first log cabin on a site opposite the present M. E. Church 
where he subsequently built a frame house which is still standing. 

The following is from Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in the 
Revolution : 

"Trimons, Abner. Private, Capt. Aaron Rowley's co., Col, 
John Brown's regt ; enlisted Sept. 5, 1777; discharged Sept. 29, 
1777 ; service, 24 days, at Northward of Pawlet." 

Fourth Generation. 45 

Ne'w York in the Revolution says : 

"Trimmins, Abner. Private in Colonel Philip Van Cortlandt's 
Second Regiment of the New York Line." 

Washington Records say : 

"Department of the Interior, Bureau of Pensions, Washingtori,- 
D. C, February 24, 1893. Sir: — Referring to your communicatiort 
received in this Bureau by the reference of Hon. A, C. Hopkins irt 
which you request information concerning the military history of 
Abner Treman a soldier of the Revolutionary War. I have to state 
that his widow Mary McLallen (maiden name) was granted a pension 
for his services in that war as a private in the Second New York 
Regiment for five years and two months. Dates of enlistment and 
discharge, officers under whom service was rendered and battles 
engaged in not mentioned. It appears that he was honored with a 
Badge of Merit for three years faithful service. In the widow's 
application for pension dated Feby. i6th, 1839, ^^^ states that she 
was married to the soldier July (30) thirtieth, 1785, at Alford, Mass., 
and that he died August i8th, 1823. Very respectfully, Charles P. 
Lincoln, Deputy Commissioner." 

"Landmarks of Tompkins County" says of him : 
"Abner Treman passed his boyhood and reached the age of 
responsibility just as the struggle for freedom by the American 
colonies was being inaugurated and with four brothers patriotically 
assumed his share in the memorable contest. He was sixteen years 
of age when he enlisted in Col. Van Cortland's Regiment and was 
assigned to the Fifth Company, serving until the close of the war. 
His courage, firmness and ability were such that he was selected by 
Gen. Washington himself, as one of those to assist in the, capture of 
Stony Point, on the Hudson River. General Wayne was in command 
of the expedition ; Lieutenant Colonel Fleury had the immediate 
command of the right wing, which was composed of one hundred andl 
fifty volunteers, and these were led by twenty men under Lieutenant 
Gibbon as a forlorn hope. Of these twenty men Abner Treman was. 
one. He was in General Sullivan's army and accompanied him om 
his expedition through the Wyoming Valley and up the Susquehanna.. 
He was successively corporal, sergeant and sergeant-major. It 
appears from the records at Washington that he was honored with a. 

46 History of thh Treman Family. 

Badge of Merit for faithful service. He received as a bounty for his 
services in the Continental Army six hundred acres of land located 
in what was then the County of Herkimer. The Indian title had 
been extinguished, and the State of New York had divided a large 
tract of land into twenty-eight townships of one hundred lots each, 
and each lot containing six hundred and sixty acres of land, to pay, 
as a bounty, to her soldiers who were in the army of the Revolution. 
Abner Treman's number drawn was Lot No. 2, Township No. 22. 
It proved to be a strip of land three-fourths of a mile wide, and 
about two miles in length, on which is now located the beautiful 
village of Trumansburg, N. Y. He came in 1792 with his wife, three 
children, his brother Philip and Philip's son Benjamin and his wife's 
brother, John McLallen, with his bounty warrant to take possession 
of his land. He immediately commenced clearing up his land and 
gave a man a deed of one hundred acres of it for one year's service 
to work it. In 1794 he concluded to build a grist mill, and went 
east to Chenango Point, now Binghamton, to purchase the necessary 
machinery. On his return he stopped all night at Davenport's 
tavern which was located a mile from Ithaca on West Hill, It was 
in the month of February, and there came on a snow storm which 
covered the ground about two feet deep. He left the tavern at nine 
o'clock in the morning ; after walking all day and until about mid- 
night he arrived at the house of Mr. Wayburn on Goodwins point, 
and about two miles from home. He could go no farther, he was 
exhausted, frozen and nearly dead. They kindly cared for him but 
imprudently put his feet into warm water ; one of them had to be cut 
off and it was this that made him a cripple for life. Abner Treman 
took up land on the site of what is now the village of Trumansburg. 
The settlement at this point has had several names, but its present 
one is derived wholly from the fact of Mr. Treman's settlement 
there. It was first called 'McLallen's Tavern,' and it is said that at 
one time it was known as 'Shin Hollow.' Upon the authority of 
Dewitt Clinton it was also, and much more appropriately, known at 
an early day as 'Tremaine's Village.' Just how or when the final 
transition to its present name occurred is not known. Mr. Treman 
had married Mary McLallen, daughter of John McLallen, several 
years before his migration westward. For their dwelling he built 
the first house on a lot opposite the present M. E. Church. It was 

Fourth Generation. 47 

of course a primitive log cabin, its roof covered witli bark. There 
several of his children were born and on the same lot he eventually 
erected the house which is still standing. It has been written of 
Abner Treman that he was a man of marked characteristics, full of 
life and animal spirit, of robust physique and powerful voice, brusque 
and sometimes rough in speech, generous and charitable, yet exacting 
as to his rights ; he was respected by all good citizens and feared by 
the bad. The blood that flowed in his veins was good and strong 
and he transmitted to his posterity the sterling qualities which he 
possessed in so eminent a degree, and his children and children's 
children in turn became prominent and representative people 
wherever they lived."' 

The following is from the pen of a noted local historian : 
••Recollections of Abner Treman. [From the Ithaca Daily 
Journal, November 28, 1877.] A Tompkins County Revolutionary 
Hero. Editors Journal : Having written a few incidents of the early 
settlement of Ithaca, it has given me an opportunity of learning the 
history of not only its early settlers but one of the heroes of the 
Revolution. I have stated before that on the platform, which con- 
tained the officers of the day, (on our Fourth of July celebrations of 
over fifty years ago), men were seen who had fought to establish us 
as a nation. One of them who used to be there with his wooden leg, 
was x\bner Treman (or Tremain, as it was then spelled) whose 
histor)', most of which I have learned from his son Jared Treman, 
now living at Trumansburg. Mr. Abner Treman was born in 
Columbia county. New York, in 1761, and at the early age of sixteen 
enlisted in the Continental army in the year 1777, serving nearly six 
years, or until the war was finished and received his discharge signed 
by Gen. Washington. He was the grandfather of Leonard Treman, 
Lafayette L. Treman, and Elias Treman, who have been residents of 
Ithaca for over forty years, and who were born in this county. I will 
commence his history on events that happened ninety-eight years ago 
but I might say that it would have commenced an hundred years 
before (1778) at the battle of Monmouth, if he had not been sent to 
the hospital, as being sick with the smallpox, a few days previous. 
His courage, firmness and ability were such that he was selected by 
Gen. Washington himself, as one of those who were to take a hand 
in the capture of the fort, that was located on Stony Point, on the 

48 History of the Treman Family. 

Hudson river, (you will permit me, Mr. Editor, to take a little from 
history of its situation, and the manner that it was captured, on the 
night of the 15th of July, 1779, that we may better understand the 
hazard our hero underwent in that battle.) It is several years since 
I have seen the Point, but it is well named Stony Point, for it is 
covered with stones, and is about 300 feet in height. It was Wash- 
ington's plan to have taken another fort at the same time,, but that 
failed, as the men did not come to time. If the Americans could 
have taken both forts, they would have made it difficult for the 
English war ships to 2:0 up the Hudson river, and would have given 
the American army the ferry at that point of the river. It was 
Washington that planned the taking of the fort and selected the men 
for the difficult task, and he well knew that if taken at all, it must be 
by surprise. Six wrecks previous the English had taken it from the 
Americans, and had placed there six hundred men who were building 
and adding to it breastworks for large cannon ; there was also built 
half way up the hill an abatis of two rows of sharpened trees. There 
had also been placed there a considerable quantity of stores. 
General Wayne was put in command of the expedition. Lieutenant 
Colonel Fleury (a Frenchman) had the immediate command of the 
right wing, which was composed of one hundred and fifty volunteers, 
and these were led by twenty men under Lieutenant Gibbon as a 
forlorn hope. Of these twenty men, Abner Treman was one. They 
had to pick their way up the stony hill and when they came to the 
abatis it was their duty to make a way through it for others to 
follow. The left wing was composed of one hundred volunteers led 
by twenty men constituting another forlorn hope under Lieutenant 
Knox. At half past eleven at night orders were given to march. On 
the right wing was Commanding General Wayne with Lieutenant 
Colonel Fleury, and Treman says : 'that as the forlorn hope of 
twenty men, under Gibbon, passed Col. Fleury to take the lead up 
the hill, he took each one of them by the hand, and with tears gave 
them a parting kiss. That there might be no confusion. Gen. Wash- 
ington had directed that each man should have pinned on his cap a 
piece of white paper, and every gun was unloaded, the bayonet only 
to be used,' and Treman said, 'that instead of a flint he only had a 
piece of wood put in its place. When the right wing came to the 
abatis, they encountered the out-post of the enemy. Gen. Wayne 

Fourth Generation. 49 

was wounded and seventeen out of twenty of the forlorn hope were 
either killed or wounded. Treman was one of the three who were 
unhurt. Major Murphy, with his men came to the rescue, and within 
an hour the fort was taken with the loss of fifteen killed and eighty- 
three wounded. The British had twenty men killed, seventy-four 
wounded, fifty-eight missing, and four hundred and seventy-two taken 
prisoners with stores valued at $150,640. Mr. Abner Treman had 
an older brother in the army who, after the fort was taken, remarked 
to him, 'Abner, I would rather have seen you dead than to have you 
been a coward and not gone with that forlorn hope.' And whose 
heart would not move with emotions of pride and pleasure, if he 
could say that 'my father's father was there' ? 

•'We have all read of Sullivan's expedition through this country 
in 1779. Abner Treman was one of the soldiers of that army, 
whether he came up the Susquehanna with Gen. Sullivan from 
Wyoming valley, or was with Gen. James Clinton, who started from 
Canajoharie, on the Mohawk river, and went over to the Otsego 
Lake, and came down the Susquehanna, I am not able to say : but 
the two armies met at Tioga Point (now Athens) and formed an army 
of about five thousand men. The battle of Chemung was fought on 
the 29th of August, 1779, near Elmira. 

"In reading the history of the battle it appears that on the side 
of the Indians there were more white men than Indians. It is not 
necessary for me to enter into the particulars of that march, but it 
was finished in the month of September, about the 28th. There 
must have been about six hundred of that army in Ithaca. Mr. 
Jared Treman says, 'that his father's Colonel was Col. Courtland,' 
and that he visited them at Trumansburg, after they settled there. 
Mr. George W. Schuyler remarks 'that his father had a cousin by the 
name of Courtland in that army, as Colonel, who camped on South 
Hill, near Aurora street bridge. The Tuscaroras who were scattered, 
lived two miles up the Inlet ; those at the head of the lake being the 
Cayugas. There are two names that will always remain green in 
connection with that expedition, Horseheads from the number of 
horses' heads found there, which were left by the army, and Pony 
Hollow from the number of ponies found there, that had also been 
left by them. 

"Abner Treman came here in 1792, settled, and made this his 

50 History of the Treman Family, 

home, a number of years before there was even a township organized, 
and this section was in the county of Herkimer. The Indian title 
had been extinguished, and the State of New York had divided a 
large tract of land into twenty-eight townships of one hundred lots 
each, and each lot containing 640 acres of land, to pay, as a bounty 
to her soldiers who were in the army of the Revolution. Abner 
Treman's number drawn was Lot No. 2, Township No. 22. It 
proved to be a strip of land three-fourths of a mile wide, and about 
two miles in length, on which is now located the beautiful village of 
Trumansburg. He came in 1792 with his wife, three children, and 
his wife's brother, (a Mr. McLallen), with his bounty warrant to take 
possession of his land. His title was of the best as was his land. 
He immediately commenced clearing up his land and gave a man a 
deed of one hundred acres of it, for one year's service to work on it. 
In 1794 he concluded to build a grist mill, and went east to 
Chenango Point, now Binghamton, to purchase the necessary machin- 
ery, that could not be made at the farm. On his return he stopped 
all night at Davenport's tavern, which was located a mile from here 
on West Hill. It was in the month of February, and there came on 
a snow storm which covered the ground about two feet deep. He 
left the tavern at nine o'clock in the morning, after walking all day 
and until about midnight he arrived at the house of Mr, Wayburn on 
Goodwins Point, and about two miles from home. He could go no 
farther, he was exhausted, frozen, and nearly dead. They kindly 
cared for him, and as far as they knew did what was for the best, 
but they imprudently put his feet into warm water, one of them had 
to be cut off and it was this that made him a cripple for life. He 
died August i8th, 1823, aged 61 years. W. T. Eddy." 

The following letter was written by a grandson : 

"Mecklenburg, N, Y., Mar, 22d, 1876, 

"Dear Son : — I learn from Erastus Treman today that in the early 
settlement of this country as he was informed by Grandfather Abner 
Treman and also his nephew, Benj. Treman, that Phillip Treman, a 
brother of Abner Treman, and Phillip's son Benj. came to this 
country on foot, about the year 1792 or 3, from about 30 miles north 
of Albany, each with a gun and an ax and provisions for 30 days 
and one dollar in money, having only 6 cts. left upon their arrival 

Fourth Generation. 51 

here in the month of June and Phillip, as he says, struck the first 
blow by any white man at or near Trumansburg. They cut down 
about 8 acres of timber on the east bank of the creek in Trumans- 
burg where the M. E. church now stands. 

•They came back there in the fall of the same year and cleared 
up the timber that they had cut before, saving enough and putting 
up the body of a log house on the N. W. cor. opposite the now Meth. 
church and sowed the land to wheat, my grandfather, Abner Treman, 
giving them each 50 acres of his land for coming here and settling 
with him. Grandfather came here the next spring from Chenango 
Co., starting with oxen and sleigh in the month of Febry, 1793 or 4, 
and arrived here about the first of March, with his family, wife and 3 
children, after living in Chenango Co. one year, having moved there 
the year before from Columbia Co. Says there were quite a good 
many Indians here at that time. 

•'Late in the fall of the same year Grandfather, Abner Treman, 
took his oxen down to what is now Ithaca to have them kept there 
on the marsh through the winter, and in returning from there late at 
night froze both his legs, rendering amputation necessary of both 
legs, one below the knee, the other the front part of the foot. 

"George B. Treman." 

The following letter was written by Abner's son Jared : 

"Trumansburg, Nov. 24th, 1877. 

"Dear Nephew : — I believe Uncle John McLallen built the first 
frame house and Wm. Treman cut the first tree. But who cleared 
the first land I don't know. Father gave Jesse Herriman one hundred 
acres of land for one year's work. Father built his first house or 
shanty down by the creek. I think he did not live there long. I 
know there used to be preach trees there, where I used to get peaches 
when a lad. Father built a log house within a few feet of the house 
he lived in when he died. I remember when they used to have 
dances or balls there. Wm. Atwater and Isaac Varna and many 
others would attend. Father's frame house now stands in center of 
village; was raised in 1806. I think if Mr. Eddy will call on Mrs. 
James McLallen she will let him look over James' genealogical record, 
he will get more information than he can anywhere else. James was 
better posted than any one that I know and had the record of many

events. If you ever come here (it don't look as if you ever would) 
I would go over there with you and you could look for yourself. I 
think it would be very interesting to you as he had I think nearly 
two ledgers full of events or things that transpired during his lifetime. 
I think Leonard, Lafayette and Elias would be well paid for their 
trouble to see for themselves. Nothing more at present, good by. 

"Yours, etc., 

"Jared Treman." 

The History of Four Counties, so-called, says : 

"Feb. i8, 1819, Abner Treman gave a deed to the First Pres- 
byterian Church of Ulysses three-quarters of an acre of land for $100, 
for cemetery purposes, where the 'Old Cemetery' now is, reserving 
certain rights that the following quotation from the deed will explain : 
'It is hereby agreed between the Trustees of the First Presbyterian 
Church of Ulysses, in the County of Tompkins, and Abner Treman, 
of said town, that the said Abner Treman, his heirs and assigns, 
shall have the exclusive privilege of pasturing the premises within 
described forever, provided that the said Abner Treman, his heirs 
and assigns, shall not put into the said ground anything but calves 
and sheep ; the said Abner Treman, his heirs and assigns, yielding 
and paying therefor yearly, and every year, on the first day of May 
in each year, one pepper-corn.' " The same work says : 

"The tombstone of Abner Treman contains the following 
inscription : 'This monument is erected to Abner Treman, died Aug. 
13, 1823, aged 61 years. A native of Columbia Co., N. Y. A soldier 
of the Revolution, in Colonel Courtland's Regiment, and merited lot 
No. 2, Ulysses, where his remains repose. He was the first settler 
in Trumansburg, in 1792, from whom it takes its name.' 

"Abner Treman erected the first grist mill, in 1794. Part of 
the timbers are still (1878) to be seen, a little above the stone mill of 
J. W. Bouton, in the village of Trumansburg." 

The following in regard to Abner Treman is from the Trumans- 
burg Free Press of May 12, 1894: 

"One hundred years ago this winter Abner Treman brought 
from the East the first grist-mill erected in this township, in fact, the 
first mill between Owego and Geneva. The winter was exceptionally 
severe, and Mr. Treman was so badly frozen on his trip that it 

Fourth Generation. 53 

became necessary to amputate one of his feet. This was in the 
second year of the history of Trumansburg. 

"The amputation was performed by Dr. Lewis Halsey, then a 
young physician of Seneca County, son of Hon. Silas Halsey, the 
first physician and one of the earliest settlers in the country between 
the lakes. 

"When Dr. Halsey was called by Mr. Treman, and saw that 
amputation was necessary, he said to him: 'You had better send for 
some one else. I am a young man and have not had the necessary 
experience.' But the old soldier had so much confidence in his 
young friend that he replied : 'Whoever else you get, I want you to 
take it off.' Then the young surgeon went to work and was just ten 
minutes in performing the operation and ligating the arteries." 

The Souvenir of .the Trumansburg (N. Y.) Reunion (1897) says 
of him : 

"In mid-winter 1792, a revolutionary soldier living in Columbia 
county, resolved to brave the dangers and privations of a journey to 
the 'far west' and personally occupy the square mile of land for 
which he held the grant, and had located — on the map. Abner 
Treman was no common man ; he came from good stock, had proved 
his worth on the battle field, was in the very prime of his young 
manhood, full of that spirit of patriotism, progress and expansion 
that gave the nation her freedom and has made her the pride of its 
people, the admiration of its sister nations and the terror of its foes. 

"Mr. Treman was at this time thirty-one years old and his family 
consisted of a wife, Mary McLallen, two children and a brother-in- 
law, John McLallen, a lad nineteen years old. With this little family 
and all their earthly possessions, in a sleigh drawn by two horses he 
turned his face westward and began a journey that was the opening 
of a new life. After weeks of toilsome journeying in the beginning 
of the first month of spring, he for the first time saw the country 
that was to be the home of him and his generations. Just at night- 
fall after a beautiful day the little caravan emerged from the forest 
on the hills to the south of what is now Ithaca. Out to the north 
and west lay the beautiful Cayuga. On its glassy surface was 
mirrored the dense forests which for as far as the eye could reach 
lined either shore. Masses of towering pine stood like sentinels in 
the midst of oak, hickory and maple, whose bare and leafless branches

seemed to seek shelter under the evergreen of its stalwart neighbor. 
At their feet lay the plain, buried under its snowy mantle, across 
which, somewhere out among the hills beyond but a few miles away, 
lay the haven of their hopes and destiny. The following day the 
hill was descended, the swampy plain crossed and striking an old 
Indian trail along the west bank of the Lake, night found them at 
Goodwin's Point, eight miles down the Lake, and the guests of Mr. 
Weyburn, who had located there the summer before. They were 
most hospitably entertained, and their joy on finding that they were 
to' have at least one neighbor, can be imagined. From Goodwin's to 
their destination there was no trail, but Mr. Weyburn kindly offered 
his services as a guide, and the next day the party halted in the dense 
wood, near the center of Mr. Treman's grant, on the very spot where 
now stands the Cooper house, Main street. Here Mr. Treman 
struck his ax into a tree, saying, "Here I build my home," and here 
he did build it, a rude log hut with no windows or doors ; but it was 
home ; and from that little hut sprang the great race of Tremans. 
Trumansburg was born. 

"The following year Mr. Treman returned as far east as Utica, 
where he purchased a set of mill-stones and the machinery for a grist- 
mill. On his return he became lost in the wilderness, and when 
found was so badly frozen that amputation of one foot was found to 
be necessary. It is tradition that the operation was performed by a 
carpenter with the ordinary tools of his trade. 

"This first mill, erected in 1794, was the nucleus around which 
grew in a comparatively short time quite a settlement. The mill 
was built of logs on the site of the present Stone Mill. Its con- 
struction was of the simplest possible character. There was but one 
T\\n of stone, and no elevators or conveyors of any description. The 
grain was emptied directly into the hopper and the product found its 
way by gravity through the various processes to the bag of the 
customer. In those days a grist-mill was the center of civilization 
for a large extent of territory which was being rapidly cleared and 
settled, and as one industry naturally opens the field for others so it 
was here. A blacksmith shop, shoe shop, carpenter shop, tailor 
shop and tavern soon followed, and in five years from the time that 
Abner Treman struck the first blow with his ax he saw clustered 
around him a busy hive of industrious workers."

At the time of his death the Ithaca Journal said of him : 
"Abner Tremain was a hardy and brave soldier of the Revolution. 
In this character he served in the regular army with fidelity and 
honor, till he obtained a proper discharge. His arm helped to 
achieve that independence, and those social advantages, which we 
now enjoy. God shielded him in the day of battle. The savage 
shout, and the clangor of arms, w^ere not permitted to announce the 
period of his mortality. Unlike many of his fellow-soldiers, he pre- 
served the lands which he merited and received for his military 
services, at the hands of a grateful country. Improved by his 
industry and economy, they are now chiefly possessed by his bereft 
widow and offspring. The deceased w^as one of the earliest settlers 
in his town. He experienced, in an eminent degree, the hardship 
and privations incident to such enterprizes. He has moved in most 
of our social circles. We have long known and respected him as a 
neighbor and friend. But the ardent eye of the soldier is suffused 
in the darkest shades ! The warrior's powerful arm is palsied ! 
While the companions of Washington and Warren, of Greene and 
Montgomery, are falling in rapid succession to the tomb, the bosom 
of the patriot heaves a sigh, and his eye drops a tear over the frailty 
of man." 

Calendar of Land Papers of New York says : 

"Abner Tremain and others, in Nov., 1791, gave a power of 
attorney to 'jasper Hopper, to obtain their warrants from the United 
States for lands to which they were severally entitled, and when 
obtained to assign the same to the Surveyor General, for the use of 
the people of the State of New York." 

The following is a certified copy of Abner Treman's deed for 
his bounty lands :

The following in regard to Abner Treman and the name of 
Trumansburg is from the Ithaca Journal : 

"The subjoined description of Ithaca and vicinity, in 18 10, is 
taken from the private journal of DeWitt Clinton, written during his 
journey through this state as one of the commissioners appointed by 
the legislature to explore the country between the Lakes and the 
navigable waters of the Hudson, and to report upon the most eligible 
route for a water communication. 

"Governor Clinton arrived at Tremain's Village (Trumansburg) 
on August 10, 18 10, and passed the two succeeding days in Ithaca 
and vicinity. 

"Concerning this locality at that date the journal reads as follows : 

" 'We dined at Tremain's Village, so called from the soldier who 
owns the lot for military service. He resides here and is proprietor 
of the mills, and in good circumstances. The village has several 
houses, three taverns, and two or three stores, and mills in a ravine 
or hollow, formed by a creek which runs through it. It is in the 
town of Ulysses, and was formerly called Shin Hollow, by some 
drunken fellows, who, on the first settlement, frequented a log-tavern 
here, and on their way home broke their shins on the bad roads.' " 

The following lines are from a poem by Rev. Lewis Halsey, 
D.D., at the Trumansburg Reunion, Aug. 18-19, iS97> printed in the 
Free Press of that date : 

"The very family whose fame 
Gave to Old Trumansburg its name, 
Has almost disappeared from view 
In Trumansburg we call the new."

365. David Truman. (Benjamin^ Joseph^ Joseph'.) 77, 
Soldier in Rev. War. 

Connecticut in the Revolution says of him : 

"David Truman. Enlisted May 26, 1777, for the term of the 
war, in Capt, Ezekiel Sanford's Company of Redding, Conn., in Col. 
Philip Burr Bradley's Rfld. Reg. (See David Freeman. Don't 
seem to be certain of Truman or Freeman.)" 

Record of service of Connecticut men, in the War of the Revo- 
lution, War of 181 2, and Mexican War, compiled by authority of the 
General Assembly, Hartford, 1889, says: 

"Fifth Regiment 'Connecticut Line.' Formation of 1777-1781. 
Regiment raised for the 'Continental Line' of '77, to continue through 
the War. Recruited largely in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties 
with men from all parts of the state. Rendezous Danbury ; went into 
camp at Peekskill in spring of '77 and in September ordered to 
Pennsylvania with McDougal's brigade. Engaged in the battle of 
Germantown, Oct. 4th, '77, and suffered some loss. Assigned to 

62 History of the Treman Family. 

Huntington's Brigade and wintered at Valley Forge ^yj-yS. On 
June 28, '78, present at battle of Monmouth and went into camp at 
Redding 'yS-yg. In operation of '79 served in Heath's wing east 
of the Hudson ; its Light Co. under Capt. St. John detached to 
Meigs's Light Regt. Wintered at Morristown, '79-'8o, and in 
the following summer served in Conn. Division with main arm}- on 
both sides of the Hudson. Wintered '8o-'8i at 'Camp Connecticut', 
village near Robinson's House opposite West Point ; there consoli- 
dated for formation of '8o-'83." 

"Name, David Trueman. Company, Capt. Sanford's. Enlist- 
ment, May 26, 1777. Term, War. Remarks, See David Freeman." 

"David Freeman, Company Sanford, enlisted May 26, 1777, for 
the War. Second Regiment 'Connecticut Line', David Freeman, 
paid from January ist, '81 to Dec. 31st, '81. This David Freeman 
(or Trueman) was a private, and the status is that this (regimt) 
formed from the Fifth and Seventh Regiments of previous formation." 

Again on page 364, under "Size Roll of Capt. Robinson's Com- 
pany, Feb. ist, 1783," is David Freeman. Resides Middletown. 
Enlisted May 24, 1777 for the War. (This is evidently not the 
David Freeman of the first quotation.) And again, on page 496 
there is a David Freeman in Capt. Shepherd's Company which 
marched March 31st, 1777, and was discharged May 19th. This 
also not likely the first David Freeman. Again page 634, in the list 
of pensioners is David Freeman, private, on the pension roles in 1818. 

This ends the clear references relating to David Freeman, to 
which name reference is made under David Trueman, it being very 
probable that the first was believed by the compiler to be the same 
man, or possibly the same. 

Again, page 644, in the list of the Revolutionaiy pensioners, is 
one Seth Trueman. 

370. Dr. Thomas Truman. (Jonathan, Thomas', Joseph'.) 
He married Jan. 31, 1773, by Rev. J. Snow, at Providence, Sarah 
Jenckes (daughter of Ebenezer Jenckes of Gloucester). Surgeon in 
the Independent Company of Light Infantry in Providence during 
the Revolution. The census for 1774 in Providence mentions 
Thomas Truman as having a family of five — himself, two sons under 
sixteen and two female adults. His will was proved Aug. 10, 1786;

540. AsHBEL (Abner\ John\ Joseph", Joseph'.) 305. 
He was born Sept. i, 1796. He married Oct. 16, 18 17, Mary 
Ayers (daughter of Richard Ayers. For an account of her ancestry 
see the History of the Ayers Family in this book.) She was born 
Dec. 19, 1799. He went abroad, visiting Amsterdam, Holland, 
before his marriage. He was a merchant and farmer, and an 
able business man. She was a member of the Baptist Church at 
Mecklenburg for many years and lead in the singing. He was a 
Trustee of the Baptist Church. After her husband's death she 
removed to Ithaca, where she was for many years a member and 
regular attendant of the Park Baptist Church. She gave a fund to 
the Sunday School of her old home church and after her death, her 
son, Lafayette Lepine, gave a fund to the same church in memory of 
his parents. He was a Democrat in politics. 

At the time of her death the Ithaca Daily Journal said : 
"In the death of Mrs. Treman our community loses an old and 
most highly esteemed resident. Her long life was spent within the 
radius of Tompkins county, at Trumansburg, Mecklenburg and 
Ithaca. She was born at Trumansburg. Dec. 19th, 1799; moved to 
Mecklenburg after her marriage, and from there, in 1858, to Ithaca, 
where she has since resided. Mrs. Treman was marked by unusual 
religious earnestness, and her life was characterized, more than any- 

70 History of the Treman Family. 

thing else, by her service and interest in such matters. Early in life 
she became a member of the Baptist Church and was an earnest and 
ardent supporter of its teachings until her death. For many years 
she was prominently identified with the Mecklenburg Baptist Chiirch, 
being the leader of its music, and increasing in many ways its use- 
fulness. Since her removal to Ithaca, she has been a beloved 
member of the Park Church of this place ; a society she dearly 
loved, and to whose prosperity she has been, in every way ever since 
her connection with it, a generous contributor. Her attendance at 
church was something remarkable, being maintained long after the 
infirmities of age had made it hazardous. She was trained in the 
old school of religious expression, and the fervor and depth of feeling 
which characterized her utterances on all religious themes, will not 
soon be forgotten." 

He died Nov. 14, 1837, at the comparatively early age of 41 
years, at Mecklenburg. She died Sept. 15, 1887, at Ithaca, N. Y. 
Residence Mecklenburg, N. Y.

560. Jared Treman. (Abner^ John^, Joseph", Joseph'.) 307. 
He was born Oct. 5, 1800. He married (iSt), Nov. 23, 1819, Anna 
Maria Louise (LePine) Paddock. 

Anne Marie Louise LePine, the wife of Jared Treman, was born 
Nov. 27, 1794. Her father, Joseph Roch Paul Gilbert Lafayette 
LePine, was a godson of the Countess de Charwagnac, and a friend 
of General Lafayette, who was ten years his senior. He came to 
this country with Lafayette on the occasion of the latter's visit in 
1784. He owned or thereafter acquired extensive interests in San 
Domingo, and was also interested in a vessel or line of vessels 
operating between San Domingo, France and New York. 

Prior to 1790 he had married Catherine Kearney, a lady of 
Holland Dutch descent residing in New York. Louise was the third 




Fifth Generation. 71 

child ; her brother Joseph being five years older, and her elder sister 
dying in childhood. When Louise was five years old, she went with 
her mother and Joseph to join the husband and father in France, 
where they resided for a time, and where Madame LePine died. 
While Napoleon was first consul Louise went with her father and 
brother to San Domingo. It was during the troublous times on the 
island which marked the beginning of the century, and one morning 
Mr. LePine went out from the city to his plantation never to return. 
He undoubtedly perished in the general massacre of the whites. 

Disguised as an orange girl, the little Louise, then about ten 
years of age, escaped on board a merchant vessel bound for New 
York. Hidden beneath bags of coffee, she could hear the tramp 
and clanking guns of the black soldiers on the deck above searching 
for refugees ; and as long as she lived she vividly remembered the 
terrible experience. The escape of Joseph on a vessel bound for 
France ; its capture by a Spanish privateer ; his escape from the 
coast of Spain and return to his grandmother Kearney in New York, 
are equally thrilling. It was not many years after, when he was 
drowned in the East River. 

Bereft of parents, and too young to know how to find her 
relatives in New York, from whom she had been separated so long, 
Louise was taken into the family of Captain Mussneau, where she 
found a home until at the funeral of Alexander Hamilton, she was 
recognized by a nurse who had formerly been in her mother's employ. 
The nurse, taking the child's address, at once informed her grand- 
mother ; and that night after Louise had gone to bed, she was 
summoned to meet her brother Joseph. She immediately exclaimed, 
"My brother !" and rushed into his arms. 

In 18 10, she was married to James Paddock, by whom she had 
four children, Louisa, Emily, Ann Eliza and Catherine. Before the 
birth of Catherine the family had moved to Trumansburg, N. Y., 
where Mr. Paddock soon after died. 

In 1 8 19 she was married to Jared Treman. Soon after the 
birth of Adriana (1824), Gen'l Lafayette, who was then in this 
country, was informed of the fact and asked the privilege of naming 
the child after his wife. He wrote on a slip of paper now in posses- 
sion of the Stone family, "Adrienne is the name, to which I beg leave 
to join my most affectionate thanks."' 

72 History of the Treman Family. 

But a small portion of the property interests held by her father 
was ever recovered except, that in return for the lands confiscated in 
San Domingo, a small annuity was secured from the French govern- 
ment, and paid to her for many years. 

She died Sept. 19, 1857. Her personal appearance is described 
by one who remembers her well as follows : "petite, erect, dark eyes, 
a pretty way of dressing her hair by parting it on one side, pretty 
caps, slender fingers, pleasant voice, full vocabulary, easy in manner, 
though dignified and rather reserved." 

He married (2nd), Feb. 16, 1859, Wealthy (Crampton) Clark 
(widow of Samuel E. Clark, M. D., of Trumansburg, N. Y.) She 
was born Sept. 8, 1804, She died March 19, 1881. He built the 
flouring mill at Enfield Falls, N. Y., which he owned many years. 
He afterwards resided at Enfield, Trumansburg and Millport. 
Chemung Co., N. Y. He also owned a flour mill at Millport. He 
was one of the earliest Masons in his part of the state, being a 
member of Trumansburg Lodge. He was a member of the Pres- 
byterian Church many years. Captain in the Militia. He was a 
Democrat in politics. 

At the time of his death the Ithaca Journal said of him : 

"He spent the business portion of his life at Enfield Falls, 
Tompkins County, building the grist mill at that point, and remain- 
ing until 1850. Then he bought the homestead at Trumansburg, 
but after a time removed to Millport, going into partnership with S. 
B. Banks in the purchase of the grist mill at that place. The firm of 
Treman & Banks conducted operations for about twelve years, and 
two years afterwards Mr. Treman returned to Trumansburg where 
he lived until about 1881. His subsequent life was passed with his 
children, and the last year with his daughter, Mrs. S. B. Banks. 
The deceased was for many years a member of the Presbyterian 
Church, and one of the oldest Masons in the country. His life was 
one of industry and usefulness. His character commendable in al! 
respects, right principles guiding all his actions." 

He died July 10, 1889, at Watkins, N. Y.

570. Abner Treman. (Abner^ John', Joseph", Joseph'.) 308. 
He was born Jan. 30, 1803. He married Jan. 30, 1823, Jemima 
Thomas. She was born Nov. i, 1803, at Bridgeport, Conn. He 
was the owner and proprietor of a flouring mill nearly all his life. 

At the time of his death the Trumansburg Sentinel said : 

"His life has been one of more than ordinary usefulness. In 
early life, and in his mature years, he had followed the milling 
business. He left this business only when impaired health, largely a 
result of his years, made his retirement a necessity. 

"While possessed of a mild disposition, he was very firm in his 
convictions. He was a bold advocate of principles which he thought 
to be true, without catering to public sentiment. He was a temperance 
man, when temperance w^as not as popular with the people as in these 
times. He was anti-slavery in his sentiments, and early identified 
his sympathy with the abolition party, long before that sentiment had 
reached ascendency in the history of the nation. 

"His religious life began in 1830. At that time he united with 
the Methodist Church, and remained a faithful member through all 
his subsequent life. His companion, Mrs. Jemima Treman, with 
whom he had lived in sweet conjugal affection for more than 64 
years, still survives him; though in very feeble health. 

"In his life Abner Treman made many friends, and very few 
enemies : if, indeed, he ever had an enemy. Those who knew him 
longest and best, loved him most. His house was always open for 
the entertainment of ministers of the Gospel, and many of these have 
shared his hospitalities. Many with whom he worshiped in early 
life had preceded him to the Higher State of Being. While possessed 
with a mind of unusual strength, and of rare judgment, he was modest 
and retiring in disposition, 'esteeming others better than himself.' 
His death was more a result of old age, than from any apparent 

74 History of the Treman Family. 

disease. Having lived beyond 'the allotted time,' he has finished his 
work, and ended his mission upon the earth. 

"Conscious that his end was near, he conversed upon the 
subject with great freedom with his friends. When the time came 
for his departure, the faith which had sustained him so long, was 
equal to the hour ; and with no fear, and no regrets, he waited the 
coming of the death angel, and then, imparting his blessing upon 
his companion and children, entered into life eternal. Seldom have 
we the opportunity of recording the death of one whose life had been 
so pure, so eventful and true." 

The Ithaca Daily Journal said : 

"His life has been one of earnestness and uprightness, while 
possessing a nature gentle and kind, yet was uncompromising in his 
convictions of right. He was forgiving and charitable in all his 
intercourse with his fellow men. He commanded the respect of all 
who came in contact with "him, and was a liberal giver for all church 
and charitable purposes. He was a quiet and earnest Christian, 
exemplifying his profession by his daily life. He will be greatly 
missed by the entire community and all who knew him. The 
bereaved family have the sympathy of all. He leaves an aged wife 
and four daughters to mourn his loss."

the Treman Family Association, 1879. 

The following account of the Treman Family Reunion is from 
the Owego (N, Y.) Times of Aug. 21, 1879 : 

•On Thursday last the Trumans of this village and vicinity, and 
the Tremans of Tompkins county, held their first reunion at Taghanic 
Falls. There is one peculiarity about this family, the residents in 
Tompkins County spell their name Treman and in Tioga County 
Truman. About five o'clock on Thursday morning last, the Truman 
family consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Truman, of Flemingville, 
Lyman Truman, Jr., and sister, Mrs. Gorman, Orin T. Gorman and 
wife. Mrs. Dodge, Orin Truman, Geo. Truman and wife, William 
Truman and wife, Gilbert Truman and wife, A. Chase Thompson, 
wife and child. W. P. Stone, wife and daughter, B. L. Truman and 
wife, George Stratton and Lyman Stanbrough, left Owego for Ithaca. 

76 History of the Treman Family. 

They arrived in that village about seven o'clock and immediately 
took the steamboat at Cayuga Lake for Goodwin's Point. They were 
met by Leonard Treman and Mr. and Mrs. William Thompson, and 
taken in carriages to the residence of Mr. Thompson, where they 
were elegantly entertained, and were then taken to Taghanic Falls, 
where the reunion took place. After the festivities of the day were 
over, the Owego delegation was brought to Ithaca in Mr. Treman's 
steam yacht, and then came by cars to Owego, arriving here in the 
evening. The party wishes to return their thanks to William Thomp- 
son and family and other friends, for the numerous courtesies 
extended them." 

We clip the following in regard to the reunion from the Ithaca 
Journal : 

" 'The first reunion and picnic of the Treman and McLallen 
families took place at Taghanic Falls north side, Aug. 14, 1879. 
The early morning, which indicated a stormy, unpleasant time, soon 
gave way to a most delightful day, neither too hot nor too cold, with 
a cool north breeze, it seemed as if nature herself had done her best 
to render the occasion a delightful one. With the arrival of the 
regular steamer Frontenac, from Ithaca at 71-2 o'clock, came a 
delegation of about thirty of the Truman family from Owego, and 
Mr. Wm. Thompson, of Goodwin's point, very kindly furnished 
carriages to convey the party to the ground. At about ten o'clock 
the stream of carriages began to arrive and from that time until 
noon the incessant arrival made one wonder if the population of 
Tompkins County was composed entirely of the families of Treman 
and McLallen. At about noon the Ithaca delegation arrived escorted 
by the Mecklenburg cornet band and officers of the day who met 
them near the lake. The members of the two families from Owego 
and different parts of Tompkins County composed the greater part 
of the assemblage, but numerous relations were present from Meck- 
lenburg, Elmira, New York, Olean and Westfield, Pa. 

" 'At about one o'clock the company were invited by the com- 
mittee of arrangements to the grove where long tables were literally 
groaning beneath the weight of good things which had been brought 
to satisfy the wants of the inner man. In a short time the large 
company numbering, it was estimated, fully four hundred persons, 
were seated and a pleasant sight it was to look upon. In a short 

Fifth GptXERATiox. 77 

time it became quiet and a photograph of the scene was taken by 
Hall, an artist from Trumansburg, after which Rev. J. E. Cathell 
invoked the blessing of the Giver of all good upon the company 
present. The onslaught began and in a short time, the hunger of 
the multitude being satisfied, a resolution was offered and passed 
that a similar gathering take place on the second Thursday of 
August, 1880. After which the following officers were elected for 
the ensuing year. 

" 'President, E. R. Treman ; Vice Presidents, Jared Treman, D. 
K. McLallen, Abner Treman, Wm. H. McLallen, Aurora, 111., Elias 
Treman, Ithaca, George Truman, Owego ; Secretary, Leonard 
Treman. Trumansburg; Treasurer, G. J. McEallen. 

•' 'Prayer was next offered by Rev. J. J. Phelps, which was 
followed by an original poem written for the occasion by Rev. 
Dwight Williams, the preacher poet, who was followed by Rev. J. E. 
Cathell, who made a short speech. Next, Rev. J. J. Phelps made a 
short but happy speech and the exercises at the table terminated. 

" 'It being the wish of many present, about a dozen of the older 
members of both families were grouped and a photograph of them 
taken by the artist, Mr. Hall, and a more venerable group it would 
be hard to find. May their days be long upon the land. A book 
was kept in which all members of either family were requested to 
record their names and we believe nearly all did so. 

" 'The utmost harmony and good feeling prevailed ; people who 
had never met each other before becoming acquainted without the 
formality of an introduction, saying : 'We are all cousining today, let 
us know each other better.' To the enjoyment of the occasion the 
genial proprietors of the Taughannock House, Messrs. Root & Burg- 
hardt, contributed verj' largely, doing all in their power for the comfort 
of their guests. Keeping the house as they do on strictly temperance 
principles, makes it a very desirable place for such gatherings. As the 
day grew on those from a distance began to think of returning home 
and each went feeling that it had been good to be there and that if 
their lives were spared the second Thursday in August, 1880, would 
again find them gathered together to renew the acquaintance made 
that day. A resolution was passed to the effect that an account of 
the gathering should be furnished the Ithaca Journal and in accord- 
ance with that request I offer the foregoing outline of the day's 
pleasant event. F. B. A.' "

1800. Leonard Treman. (Ashbel% Abner-', John\ Joseph , 
Joseph'.) 541. He was born June 18, 1819, at Mecklenburg, N. 
Y. He attended the Ithaca Academy, 1834-5. He married, Oct. 
20, 1846, Almira Corley (daughter of John Corley, merchant, of New 
York City, and Katharine Fernhower of Philadelphia, son of Henry 
Corley and Katharine Corley, who came from Germany in 1782 to 
New York City and afterwards resided at New Rochelle, N. Y. The 
history of the Corley family is as follows : Henry Corley came to this 
country from Germany in the year 1782 and landed in New York. 
Soon afterwards moved to New Rochelle ; was a millwright and 
carpenter by trade. His wife's name was Katharine. Had five sons 
and two daughters, born in succession as follows, viz : Henry, Joseph, 
Casper, Eliza, Katharine, John and Christopher. He lived in New 
Rochelle about ten years, when he died and was buried there, his 
son John then being twelve years old. About two years after that 
the family moved to New York. Katharine, his wife, died in New 
York in about the year 1824 and was buried in the Presbyterian 
Cemetery between Rivington and Staunton Streets. She was about 
ninety years old. John Corley, the son of Henry and Katharine 
Corley, was born in Germany in the year 1782. He came to New 
York with his father's family when eighteen months old, moved to 
New Rochelle and lived there till he was twelve years old, then his 
father having died the family moved to New York. About that time 
John went to Hudson, where he lived with a man four years, working 
at all kinds of work and then came back to New York. Soon after 
was bound for the term of five years to Cams & Hazlett, on John 
Street, near Cliff, to learn the chairmaker's trade. After working out 
his apprenticeship he worked jour work for about three years, when 
work became ver\- dull and he got out of work. He then went into

the grocery business at the corner of Fiatta and Henry Streets, 
At the end of one year he sold out and in the year 1812 
during the embargo he went into the chair business at No. 7 
Peck Slip, He was there 7 years, then went to west side of Pearl 
Street, near Beekman Street, Afterward he moved to Franklin 
Square and continued there 18 years. The lot ran through to Cliff 
Street, Lived on the same premises. He was married on Dec. 27, 
1806, being one year after the great eclipse, to Katharine Fernhower 
who was bom in Philadelphia in 1787, but at that time lived in New 
York, John Corley was baptized July 2, 18 14, He died Feb, 8, 
1869, Katharine, his wife, was baptized March 3, 18 16. She died 
Nov, 22, 1853), Almira Corley was born May 25, 1823, He was 
the first of the notable Treman brothers to take up his residence in 
Ithaca. After leaving school he entered the store of Wood & Nye 
at Ithaca as a clerk where he remained two years, until his father's 
death when he returned home. Having a natural aptitude for 
business he again took up a business life, becoming a clerk in the 
hardware store of Edmund G. Pelton in Ithaca, In the year 1844 
his brother Lafayette joined him and they purchased Pelton's busi- 
ness and established the firm of L. & L, L, Treman, which became 
Treman Brothers when their younger brother, Elias, joined the firm 
in 1849, They were associated together in business over half a 
century. He was one of the organizers and the first President of both 
the Ithaca Water Works Company, 1864-88, and the Ithaca Gas 
Light Company, 1870-88, President of the Ithaca Savings Bank, 
1887-8, Director in the Newfield and Ithaca Plank Road, 1850, 
Director in the Ithaca and Athens Railroad Company, 1869-74, and 
Cayuga Lake Railroad Company, 187 1-4. He was a Democrat in 
politics. Trustee of the Village of Ithaca, 1850 and 1869. Treas- 
urer and Trustee of the Congregational Church many years. 

Landmarks of Tompkins County says of him : 

"Leonard Treman's early education was obtained in the district 
schools of his native village, finishing with a term at the Ithaca 
Academy in the winter of 1834-5. In the latter year he took up his 
first occupation on his own account by engaging as a clerk in the 
store of Wood & Nye, in Ithaca, where he remained two years, when 
his father died and he returned to Mecklenburg. His early tastes 
were whollv turned towards a mercantile career, and with the purpose

of making that his life work he again came to Ithaca and entered the 
employ of Edmund G. Pelton, who was carrying on the hardware 
trade. From that time onward until near the time of his death he 
retained his connection with that business. In the year 1844 his 
brother, Lafayette L., joined him, and the firm of L. & L. L. Treman 
was founded as successors of Mr. Pelton. The business prospered 
as most business will when superintended by men of ability, integrity 
and industry. On the first of February, 1849, Elias, the youngest 
brother, came to Ithaca and joined the firm, the style becoming 
Treman & Brothers. On the first of February, 1857, Leander King, 
a cousin of the Tremans, who had been long and faithful in their 
employ, was admitted to the partnership and the style was again 
changed to Treman, King & Co., and so remains at the present time 
(1894). though other changes have been made in its membership. 

'Tn the year 1849, when Elias Treman came into the firm, they 
acquired a foundry and machine business then located on the East 
Hill on the south bank of Cascadilla Creek. These works were 
subsequently burned and the business was then transferred to the 
corner of Cayuga and Green Streets, and was very successfully con- 
ducted under the firm name of Treman & Brothers and distinct from 
the hardware trade. Under the firm name of Treman & Co., Leonard 
Treman also established a general hardware business in Watkins, 
Schuyler Co., N. Y., which was continued until a few years ago. 

"While these extensive operations would seem to have been 
sufficient to satisfy the ambition of most men, as well as to employ 
one's whole time, such was not the case with Mr. Treman or his 
brothers. They foresaw the future importance of the village and its 
needs, and were the builders and owners of a large portion of the 
stock of the Ithaca Water Works, which has continued in the family 
ever since, and they took a large share of the stock of the Ithaca 
Gas Light Company. Mr. Treman was made president of the former 
company in 1864 and of the latter company in 1870 and held the 
offices until his death. It hardly need be added that the various 
important positions to which he was chosen were filled and their 
duties administered with the same faithfulness and ability that had 
long characterized the conduct of his private aiTairs. In the business 
and social life of Ithaca his position was an enviable one and was 
honored by him in the same degree that it honored him." 

loo History of the Treman Family. 

At the time of his death the Ithaca Democrat said : 
"In the death of Mr. Leonard Treman, which occurred last 
Friday morning, our community has lost another good citizen whose 
hold upon its business and social life was a strong one. Seldom has 
a death here made a more profound impression. It was hoped that 
his illness, caused by a disease of the spine producing muscular 
atrophy, would not prove fatal, but as he had not been in robust 
health for some time his powers of resistance were unable to cope 
with a malady that might not have proved immediately fatal to a 
younger or a stronger man. Mr. Treman had nearly attained the age 
allotted to man, being sixty-eight years old. He leaves a widow and 
one daughter, Mrs. John Bush, of Buffalo. Deceased was the senior 
member of one of our oldest and most reliable business firms, first 
known as Treman Brothers, successors to Edmund G. Pelton in the 
foundry and hardware business, and latterly as Treman, King & Co., 
firm names which have long been associated with enterprises that 
have added greatly to the growth and prosperity of Ithaca. Mr. 
Treman was the oldest son of the late Ashbel Treman, of Mecklen- 
burg. Two brothers, Lafayette and Elias Treman, and one sister, 
Mrs. Charles D. Johnson, are the surviving members of his family. 
He began life, as so many of our self made men do, as a clerk, in 
order to obtain that knowledge of business methods that he was 
afterwards to make so valuable to himself and others in building up 
a large business on enduring foundations. The firm which he founded 
has been dissolved only by death. As a village official, the leading 
spirit of several local railroad enterprises, director of the Tompkins 
County National Bank, president of the Savings Bank, Ithaca Water 
Works and Gas Light companies, and trustee and treasurer of the 
Congregational Church, Mr. Treman well and faithfully performed 
all the duties which these various interests required. In his social 
relations, his genial manners were but the expression of a kind and 
sympathetic nature. A staunch Democrat, he was always true to his 
party and rejoiced in its success. In closing this imperfect tribute 
to a character and career of marked worth and usefulness, we regret 
to so ill express the loss that this community has sustained by the 
death of Leonard Treman." 

The Ithaca Daily Journal said : 

"Leonard Treman died of spinal disease and muscular atrophy 

Sixth Generation. ioi 

shortly after ei;^ht o'clock this morning. Mr. Treman's health had 
been feeble for some months, but it was not until about three weeks 
ago that he was obliged to relinquish his numerous business cares 
and remain a prisoner at home. When first prostrated it was 
generally hoped and expected that his naturally robust constitution 
would prove sufficiently strong to throw ofT the ailment and permit a 
speedy return to health. But about two weeks ago his family realized 
that his condition was critical and that the end was surely at hand. 
Mr. Treman was one of Ithaca's landmarks, having been very prom- 
inently identified with the community's important industries for more 
than two generations. 

"Mr. Treman personally superintended the many important and 
varied interests of which he had long been the head, and regularly 
fulfilled the public duties that had claim to his attention. In 1862 
he went to Europe and visited England, Ireland, Scotland, Switzer- 
land and France. 

"Mr. Treman was a man of military bearing, of unfailing courtesy 
and possessed a well-poised judgment. His knowledge of history 
was found in familiar conversation with friends to be quite thorough 
and extensive. 

"His loyalty to truth and justice was well known. He never 
gave his support to a policy or institution until convinced of the 
claims of it, and any cause or friend once gaining his adhesion, his 
devotion could be absolutely relied upon so long as sound reasons 
for his support remained in force. He was a man of tender sympathy 
and ever ready to minister to those who were in trouble. His loss 
will be deeply felt by the Congregational Church and by the 

The Ithacan said : 

"Mr. Leonard Treman, one of Ithaca's most prominent, wealthy 
and influential citizens, passed away from earth life last Friday 
morning. The sad event cast a pall over the entire community, for 
his friends were legion. Mr. Treman had suffered from failing health 
for several months, but it was not until about three weeks before his 
demise that he reluctantly laid aside the cares of business, to which 
he had so long been accustomed, for the confinement of his home 
and the sick room — never, alas, to leave alive. Spinal disease and 
muscular atrophy was the cause of his death. There was no thought 

I02 History of the Treman Family. 

at first of a fatal tei;mination of the disease and his death seemed 
sudden to the many who were wont to meet him daily in the numerous 
circles of business with w^hich he was so prominently connected. 

"Leonard Treman has filled numerous positions of public trust 
and responsibility in the village of his choice, having served the 
people as trustee and director of many important enterprises during 
its history. For many years he was trustee of the Ithaca Savings 
Bank, until recently when he was elected its president. He was 
director of the Tompkins County National Bank, president of the 
Ithaca Water Works Company and the Ithaca Gas Light Company. 
Mr. Treman had also for several years been a trustee and treasurer 
of the Congregational Church of Ithaca. He has ever fulfilled with 
promptness and faithfulness the various duties devolving upon these 
several important positions, and his loyalty to truth and justice are 
too well known to need comment." 

At the time of her death the Ithaca Daily Journal said : 
"At the age of 13 she came with her parents, on a canal-packet- 
boat — the only mode of travel, in that day, between New York and 
Ithaca, excepting coaches. Here since that time she has resided. 
Mrs. Treman derived from her German parents most estimable and 
solid traits of character. She possessed a charitable disposition and 
sound judgment, and her speech was guided by instinctive wisdom. 
With a liberal hand she responded to the demands of religion and 
philanthropy. Mrs. Treman as well as her late laniented husband, 
was profoundly concerned in the welfare of the church to which she 

"In the city hospital, also, she was deeply interested, and before 
she succumbed to illness she had made wise arrangements for the 
completion of the furnishing of a room in that institution. The society 
of Ithaca experiences a great loss in the death of Mrs. Treman. 
An only surviving sister, Mrs. Sammis, resides in New York City."

1804. Lafayette Lepine Treman. (Ashbel=, Abner-*, John\ 
Joseph", Joseph'.) 542. He was born April 3, 182 1, at Mecklen- 
burg, N. Y. He attended Penn Yan Academy. He married April 
9, 1849, Eliza Ann Mack (daughter of Hon. Ebenezer Mack and 
Eleanor Dey, daughter of Peter Dey and Eleanor Board. For a full 
account of her ancestry see the History of the Mack, Dey and 
Board Families, in this volume.) He was one of three brothers who 
have left their impress upon the history of the City of Ithaca, N. Y.. 
where they spent nearly all their liv^es, taking a leading part in the 
social, business, religious, educational and political affairs of its 
people. An older brother, Leonard, had preceded him in Ithaca 
but he soon joined him and formed the firm of L. & L. L. Treman 
in the hardware business ; the firm name became Treman Brothers 
upon the accession of their younger brother, Elias, to the firm in 
1849, and with various changes in the firm name, the three brothers 
were associated together in business for a period of over fifty years. 
He commenced his business life as a clerk in the hardware store of 
James D. Morgan, at Penn Yan, N. Y. He came to Ithaca in 1844, 
to engage in business for himself and ever afterwards made it his 
home. The success which he won was due to his own energy and 
talents together with a courtesy and kindliness which ever made him 
friends. His activities did not entirely cease even in advancing 
years till age compelled him to devolve many of his duties upon his 
son who had been trained to, and did, succeed him in most of his 
business positions. His business activity may be shown by the 
many official positions which he held. He was elected President of 
the Tompkins County National Bank in 1873 and held the position 
until his death in 1900. Under his administration this bank became 
known as one of the soundest financial institutions in the interior of 
the State. He w^as also one of the organizers of both the Ithaca 
Gas Light Company and the Ithaca Water Works Company and was 
President of both companies from 1888 until his death. He was 
also a Director of the Ithaca Trust Company, and of the Lyceum 
Company, Upon the organization of the Ithaca and Athens Rail- 
road Company he was elected its Secretary and held the position 
several years. He was a Democrat in politics but did not care for 
office. He early took an interest in the affairs of St. John's Protest- 
ant Episcopal Church, of which he was a member and Warden over 

I04 History of the Treman Family. 

fifty years, 1847-1900, being a generous contributor to the support of 
its many interests. He also remembered the church of his father 
and mother, and just before he died he sent the Baptist Church at 
Mecklenburg a handsome fund in their memory. In his death 
Ithaca lost one of its most upright citizens, one who was foremost in 
every movement for the welfare of the community in which he lived. 
His presence was ever welcome in the Church and social circle and 
if he had any enemies they did not make their presence known. 
The officials of the bank and other institutions over which he pre- 
sided, passed appropriate resolutions upon his death, recognizing 
his worth and paying just tribute to his memory. He was a member 
of St. Augustine Commander}', Knights Templar, of Ithaca. He 
was an Ensign in the old State militia. 

Landmarks of Tompkins County says of him : 

"He received his education in the common schools supple- 
mented by a period of study in tiie Penn Yan Academy. In that 
village he found his first employment away from home as a clerk in 
the hardware store of James D. Morgan. In the year 1844, when 
he was twenty-three years old, he came to Ithaca and joined with his 
elder brother, Leonard, in the hardware trade under the firm name 
of L. & L. L. Treman, succeeding Edmund G. Pelton. 

"This young man was possessed of exceptional natural business 
ability, which he had assiduously cultivated during his clerkship at 
Penn Yan, arfd when the two brothers joined their interests in 
Ithaca it was with a firm determination to accomplish just what they 
ultimately did accomplish, the building up of a successful and exten- 
sive trade in an establishment that would be an honor to the place 
and bring them a justly earned competence. This determined pur- 
pose has governed Mr. Treman ever since, and while other interests 
have in later years claimed much of his attention, he has never per- 
mitted his allegiance to his first legitimate business to falter. 

"The qualifications before noted soon gave Mr. Treman an 
acknowledged position among the most enterprising business men of 
Tompkins County, while his reputation for staunch integrity led to 
his being called to several positions of trust and responsibility. He 
served for a time as Secretary of the Ithaca and Athens Railroad 
before its consolidation with the Lehigh Valley system. He early 
became a Director in the Tompkins County National Bank, and in 

Sixth Generation. 105 

1873 was chosen its President, a position which he still holds, (1894). 
Under his skillful financial guidance this sound old institution is 
known as one of the most successful of the banks of the interior of 
the State. In 1888 he was made President of the Ithaca Gas Light 
Company and the Ithaca Water Works Company, both of which 
positions he still occupies. In their management his counsel has 
always been for enterprising liberality towards the public, a policy 
that has at the same time been to the interest and prosperity of the 
companies. He is also a director and one of the principal promoters 
of the Lyceum Company, which has just completed one of the 
finest opera houses in the State. He is also one of the original 
Board of Directors of the Ithaca Trust Company. In all of these 
positions Mr. Treman has won the entire confidence and respect of 
those with whom he has been associated. Modest and retiring in 
his temperament, with unfailing courtesy for all and a broad charity 
and kindliness for the weaknesses of human nature, Mr. Treman has 
found a warm place in the community outside of his large circle of 
business connections. He is a member of the St. John's Protestant 
Episcopal church, and since 1847 has continuously held the office of 
Warden, contributing cheerfully of his means to the building up of 
the cause of religion. Like other members ot his family Mr. 
Treman is a Democrat in politics, but entirely without desire ar 
taste for public office." 

At the time of his death the Ithaca Democrat said editorially : 

"With the death of Lafayette L. Treman there passes away from 
the city of Ithaca one of its most highly honored and justly esteemed 

••For more than hfty years Mr. Treman has been prominently 
identified with the business life of this community. Coming here 
in 1844, with his brother, Leonard Treman, he engaged in the hard- 
ware business. He lived to see a modest hardware store of early 
days, in what was then only a small village, grow to be one of the 
most prosperous and one of the largest mercantile establishments of a 
thriving city. 

"Among the men who have won success in the business life of 
Ithaca, of few can it be more truthfully said than of Mr. Treman, 
that success was truly earned and well deserved. 

io6 History of the Treman Family. 

"His enterprise, his good business judgment, his industry, his 
integrity won for him the high position in this community which he 
enjoyed. Of his customers he made friends. His conscientious 
regard for fairness and justice in business transactions led him to be 
accorded many positions of trust and responsibiUty and the qualities 
which made him a successful merchant made him a successful banker. 

"He was the President of the Ithaca Gas Light Company and 
the Ithaca Water Works Company and his management of these 
enterprises was always characterized by a generous and considerate 
treatment of the working classes. 

"Mr. Treman was a Democrat in politics, and a true Democrat 
by nature. No man in humble station was by him despised. 'Before 
man made us citizens, great Nature made us men." Mr. Treman 
recognized in all men something of worth. Courtesy and kindness 
were not by him reserved for some, but were habitually extended to 
all with whom he came in contact. . His death will be sincerely 
mourned by all who knew him." 

The Ithaca Daily Journal said editorially : 

"Ithaca loses in the death of Lafayette L. Treman a character 
of whose kind there are all too few representatives. Upright and 
respected all his life, manly and admired all his maturity, Mr. Treman 
held the confidence of the community for many years. He was a 
leader in business affairs, a pioneer in public spirit, and a promoter 
of public improvements. In church and in charity he was ever ready 
with work and with substance ; his counsel was valued and followed. 

"Mr. Treman was distinctively a man of positive character, of 
energetic and forceful mind. He was progressive in all that the 
word implies — forward and upward. His daily association was a 
benefit ; his converse was uplifting ; his doings were an example. 
Cleanly and commendable in words and works, Mr. Treman was 
highly and justly esteemed, and his memory will be a constant 
inspiration to those who knew him." 

In another column the same paper said : 

"Lafayette L. Treman passed to the other world at 4 o'clock 
this morning after a brief illness, during which his family had been 
encouraged to hope that he might recover. The announcement this 
morning on the doors of the Treman, King & Co. stores, 'Closed on 

Sixth Generation. 107 

account of the death of Lafayette L. Treman, one of the founders of 
the firm,' was read by hundreds of the people, and through all the 
city during the day the history of the deceased was the most promi- 
nent topic discussed. 

''He was a member of the St. John's P^piscopal Church and since 
1847 has continuously held the office of warden, contributing cheer- 
fully of his means to the building up of the cause of religion. 

"Like other members of his family Mr. Treman was a Democrat 
in politics, but entirely without desire or taste for public office. 

"For nearly sixty years the name of Lafayette L. Treman has 
been coupled in Ithaca with purity and modesty, rare intellectual 
power, gentleness, consideration for employes, firmness, integrity. 
He was a model husband and father, always looking far in adyance 
of his day ; profoundly respected and trusted by the entire community ; 
a sincere churchman, a loyal friend and an ideal of physical manhood,

The Ithaca Daily News said : 

"This morning Ithaca lost one of its oldest and most highly 
esteemed citizens, in the death of Lafayette L. Treman. He was the 
last of three brothers who took a very active interest in the business 
life of Ithaca during the last half century. For several months Mr. 
Treman has been in failing health and to his family and nearest 
friends his death at this time was not wholly unexpected." 

At a meeting of the directors of the Tompkins County National 
Bank the following memorial was presented : 

"In the death of Lafayette L. Treman, which occurred on the 
27th of April, the Tompkins County National Bank suffers the irre- 
parable loss of its president, and this community one of its most 
upright and prominent citizens.

and private, with which he was identified, and to all of them he

build this institution, and its present highstanding is owing largely 
to his untiring energy in its behalf. 

"He was a safe counselor, and an earnest advocate of a high 
standard in all business methods. He commanded the respect of 
all classes in this community, not only because of his probity in all 
business affairs, but by reason as well of his manly virtues in his 
private life. His death is universally lamented and will cause 
especial sorrow in his family circle, and yet the grief there as every- 
where will be tempered with the fond recollection of a well spent and 
a well rounded life.

Vestry of St. John's Church : 

"Since it has pleased Almighty God, in His providence, to 
terminate the earthly life of our late associate, Lafayette L. Treman, 
Senior Warden of St. John's Church, 

"Therefore the Rector and Vestr\', representing the whole parish 
and congregation, desire to put on record our sense of the great loss 
we have sustained in the departure of one who as Vestryman and 
Warden had served so long and so faithfully. 

"It is now fifty-three years since he was first elected Vestryman. 
Thirty-nine years ago he became Warden and was re-elected each 
year. In the discharge of the duties thus imposed upon him he was 
ever most faithful. His interest in the church was sincere and 
unwavering. His judgment was sound, and his advice invaluable.

His hand was always open and his benefactions constant. Kind 
and courteous to all, he was universally esteemed and beloved, and 
was the ideal of a Christian gentleman. 

■ "His life was rounded out to completeness and in the fullness of 
days he was gathered to his fathers in the communion of the Church : 
in the comfort of a reasonable hope, and in perfect charity with alii 
men. With full hearts we bid him farewell for a time, and commend 
him to the holy keeping of Him whom he faithfully served. 

"In the full consciousness of our own loss we turn to those whO' 
are indeed bereaved, and we offer to his widow and children our 
tenderest sympathy in the heavy trial which has befallen them. We 
commend them to Him who alone can give strength in the time of 
trouble, and that eternal peace which passeth understanding.

was born June i, 1832. at. Stratford, Conn. He was the youngest of 
three brothers who settled at Ithaca and became noted in its history 
as successful business men and prominent citizens for over half a 
century. After leaving school he entered the hardware store of his 
brothers at Ithaca in 1847, and two years afterwards became a 
partner in the business under the tirm name of Treman Brothers. 
He was one of the organizers and a Director in both the Ithaca Gas 
Light Company and the Ithaca Water Works C9mpany. Director 
in the Tompkins County National Bank several years and also in the 
Ithaca Trust Company. Trustee of the Ithaca Savings Bank. 
President of the Village of Ithaca, 1861. Captain of the Protective 
Police of the Fire Department eighteen years. Chief Engineer of 
the Fire Department. 1866. Member of the Board of Education 
several years. He was a member of the Citizens' Committee which 
prepared the Charter of the City of Ithaca. He was a Democrat in 
politics. He was for many years a Trustee of the Presbyterian 
Church of Ithaca. He built the Lyceum Block at Ithaca in i8g8. 

"Landmarks of Tompkins County" says of him : 
•'Ellas Treman attended school in his native village and finished 
in the Penn Van Academy, after which he entered the employ of 
Morgan & Armstrong in Penn Yan as clerk in their hardware store 
( where his brother was already engaged) and remained there six 
years. In 1847 he came to Ithaca and entered the employ of the 
then well established tirm of L. & L. L. Treman, becoming a partner 
in said firm on February i, 1849, the style being thereby changed to 
Treman & Brothers. In this connection he has ever since remained 
to the present time (1894). Uniting his admirable business qualifica- 
tions with those of his brothers, a foundry and machine shop were 
built and the hardware trade largely extended. When the building 
of the water works was taken up he was made one of the directors 
of the company, and also in the Gas Company, which positions he 
holds at the present time. A large share of the burden of directing 
the mercantile business of the firm falls upon his shoulders. He is a 
Democrat in politics, like his brothers, but also like them has never 
become an aspirant for public office, though he has capably filled 
the position of President of the Village of Ithaca. Mr. Treman 
enjoys to the fullest extent the confidence and respect of the 

112 History of the Treman Family. 

He was thrown from his carriage and seriously injured June ist, 
1898, and died from the effects of his injuries. 

The following account of the accident is from the Ithaca Daily 
Journal, June 2, 1898: 

"Our well known townsman, Elias Treman, met with a serious 
accident yesterday afternoon while driving to his summer cottage on 
the west shore of the lake. He was accompanied by Charles D. John- 
son, who sat with him on the rear seat of a democrat wagon, Jasper 
Woodsin driving Mr. Treman's gray horse singly. When nearly 
opposite the James L. Baker place a snake was seen gliding across 
the road at which the driver aimed a blow with his whip. The swish 
of the whip startled the horse, causing it to spring forward so abruptly 
that the seat and its occupants were thrown out. Mr. Johnson was 
slightly stunned by the fall but quickly regained control of his senses. 
He saw Mr. Treman lying motionless in the road, with the seat 
across his body, he having struck on the back of his neck, and sus- 
tained a dislocation of the neck. Mr. Treman was placed in Professor 
John L. Morris's carriage, which came along opportunely, and brought 
to his home in this city, where he was attended by Dr. Biggs. 

•Tn answer to inquiries this morning relative to Mr. Treman's 
condition a reporter was informed that he passed a fairly comfortable 
night but that both legs were paralyzed from his hips down. It is 
hoped that this condition may be only temporary, inasmuch as Mr. 
Treman despite his advanced years is an unusually strong and 
robust man. 

"The news of the accident spread through the city very swiftly 
last evening and awakened a general sentiment of regret. 

"A specialist in consultation is expected to reach here tonight." 

The same paper said editorially, June 4, 1898 : 

"Not half a dozen men in this city have been so long, actively 
and extensively engaged in business here as Elias Treman. Few 
citizens, if any, enjoy as large and intimate acquaintance with the 
people of Tompkins county. Hale and cheery to the very instant of 
the accident which suddenly invalided him it is but natural that 
thousands are eager for frequent and detailed reports from his bed- 
side. The fortitude and cheerfulness which marked his daily walk 
are reported unimpaired." 

Sixth Generation. 113 

At the time of his death The Ithaca Democrat said editorially : 
•In the death of Elias Treman, Ithaca loses one of its ablest 
and staunchest business men, one who has impressed upon the 
business life of our city the stamp of his individuality to a remarka- 
ble degree. 

'•His name has ever stood as a tower of strength in our business 
and commercial circles. His sturdy integrity, his cheery encourage- 
ment, his indomitable courage and spirit has furnished to many a 
young man that incentive which has resulted in business success. 
He was ever a man of the people caring little for ostentation and 
outward show, and wonderfully gifted in his ability to correctly read 
and judge the men with whom he came in contact. 

'•He more than any man the writer ever knew valued men for 
what they were rather than what they appeared to be. He hated 
sham ; but ever prized and applauded in no uncertain way what he 
saw of good in mankind without reference to the coat or social posi- 
tion of the wearer. His friends and business acquaintances every- 
where valued his friendship because they believed it sincere, and thus 
it is that throughout this and neighboring counties there is many a 
sad heart today plunged in real grief because of his death. 

"His has been a long, prosperous and honorable career. One 
that may well serve as an example to the younger men of Ithaca. 

••While his life was essentially a business life to which he was 
ever devoted, he yet found time to mingle freely with his fellow 
citizens in social functions where he was ever a favorite, and to 
make himself felt in everything that pertained to the welfare of our 

•'A good citizen in every sense of the word, a kind neighbor, a 
fearless advocate of the right, a manly man, such was Elias Treman. 
Ithaca will miss him sadly, but she cannot forget the e.xample of his 
life so closely allied to the business integrity and public spirit 
of her citizens." 

The Ithaca Daily Journal said : 

"Elias Treman died about one o'clock this morning of the 
injuries he received by being accidentally thrown from his carriage, 
near his summer cottage on the west shore of Cayuga lake, the first 
of last June. Distinguished non-resident surgeons were called to aid 
his own physician, but they frankly admitted their inability to avert

the inevitable and fatal result that must follow so serious an injury 
as the severing of the^spinal cord. 

"Elias Treman accepted his awful misfortune in a philosophical 
and Christian spirit. During the long contest with the Angel of 
Death he never complained. He suffered no pain. His passing was 

"The prominence of the deceased and his immediate family, a 
prominence long maintained and steadily increasing, in the financial, 
intellectual, social and religious life of Ithaca, makes a sketch of his 
ancestry interesting and appropriate at this time. * • * * 

"Elias Treman, the subject of this article, was born in Decem- 
ber, 1822, fifteen years before his father, Ashbel, died. His child- 
hood was passed in Mecklenburg, his youth in Penn Yan. 

"In 1844 Leonard and Lafayette Treman purchased the hard- 
ware store of Edmund Pelton on the southeast corner of Owego (now 
State) and Cayuga Streets in Ithaca. They continued the hardware 
store in conjunction with a foundry and machine shop. In 1847 
Elias came to Ithaca and served as clerk in the store. In 1849 ^^^ 
became a partner. In 1857 Leander R. King, R. H. Treman in 
1883, and in 1892 C. E. Treman, became partners. 

"Leonard Treman died in 1888. Lafayette retired from the 
firm in 1897. 

"Treman Brothers met with success from the beginning of their 
mercantile venture. The hardware store became the basis for a 
system of wider and more important corporate and financial pursuits, 
including banking, gas works, water works, etc., for which Leonard 
and Lafayette withdrew from active service in the store many years ago. 

"The published history of the town of Ulysses credits Abner 
Treman, his grandfather, with 'great force of character, plain and 
expressive manner and address.' That also applied to his grandson, 
Elias Treman. He had also a stately presence and a splendid con- 
stitution, for at 75 he appeared as vigorous and nearly as supple as 
he was at 45. 

"Although an earnest Democrat, Elias Trem,an could not be 
induced to accept party or political office, except In 1861 when he 
was elected President of the Village of Ithaca. In 1865,. while a 
member of Tornado No. 3, he was elected Chief Engineer of the Eire 

Sixth Generation. 115 

"He was a member of the non-partisan Citizens' Committee that 
framed our city charter. 

"At the time of his accident he was a member of the Protective 
Fire Police, having been its captain for fourteen years, a member of 
the Board of Education, a director of the Tompkins County National 
Bank, the Ithaca Savings Bank, the Ithaca Trust Company, the 
Ithaca Water Works Company, and the Ithaca Gas Company. 

"He was chairman of the board of trustees of the Presbyterian 
Church and senior member of the well-known firm, Treman, King «& 

"He was opposed to rhetorical obituary or passionate praise of 
the dead. He once said : 'A community knows its own members 
well." Hence his theory is followed in this article and words of 
praise are unsaid, for Elias Treman was one of the best known men 
in the city and county." 

The Ithaca Daily News said : 

"Elias Treman passed away peacefully at one o'clock this morn- 
ing at his home on the corner of Buffalo and Geneva Streets, his 
death being the result of an injury which he received by being thrown 
from his carriage on the first day of last June, when on his way to 
his summer cottage on the shore of Cayuga Lake. He was thrown 
backward from the carriage, and the accident resulted in the severing 
of the spinal cord at the seventh vertebra, causing paralysis of 
the entire body. He was confined to his bed for the four months 
following the accident. He was always cheerful, and accepted the 
result of the accident with resignation. 

"Elias Treman was an ardent Democrat in politics, but was 
never very active, holding only one political office, that of President 
of the \'illage of Ithaca, in 1861, and was one of the Citizens' Com- 
mittee selected to form the present Ithaca city charter. 

"He was always much interested in the Ithaca Fire Department, 
being elected Chief Flngineer in 1865. He was also one of the 
organizers of the Protective Police, and was captain of the same for 
eighteen years. 

"He was chairman of the board of trustees of the First Presby- 
terian Church of this city, was a director in several corporations, 
among which are the Ithaca Water Works Co., Ithaca Gas Light Co..

National Bank, and was senior member of the firm of Treman, King 
& Company. He was also a member of the Board of Education." 

The Elmira Telegram said : 

'"Elias Treman, one of Ithaca's most loved citizens and respected 
business men, passed away this morning, at i o'clock. While the 
fatal fall from his carriage last June had prepared the minds of all to 
expect the inevitable result, yet when the end came, expectancy 
could not allay the deep-felt grief of a surviving community. 

"By Associated Press : 

"Elias Treman, of the retail and wholesale hardware firm of 
Treman, King & Co., died at his home in this city at an early hour 
this morning, at the age of seventy-six. Mr. Treman was one of 
Ithaca's foremost citizens. He was a Ufelong resident, promi- 
nently identified with all movements looking to the improvement and 
welfare of the city. He was a director and large stock-holder in all 
the banking houses of the city, and is well-known throughout the 
business world. The cause of his death was paralysis, coming from 
injury to the spinal cord, resulting from a fall from his carriage in 
June last." 

At a meeting of the Board of Education the President, Roger 
B. Williams, said : 

"Gentlemen of the Board of Education : 

"As we assemble here tonight our eyes naturally turn to that 
vacant chair which has been for so many years and so regularly 
occupied by Mr. Treman. • Our thoughts revert to the unfortunate 
accident which has for four months deprived us of his companionship 
and counsel, while he lay with unfailing cheerfulness and heroic 
patience bearing the heavy cross that was placed upon him. And 
now they turn to the scene we witnessed yesterday when all that 
was mortal of our beloved friend was placed out of our sight forever. 
Nothing can efface our admiration of his character, the inspiration 
we have received through his example, or our reverence for the 
memory of Elias Treman. We mourn his loss, but we glory in the 
record he has left behind him and are thankful that for so many 
years we have been privileged to know him and work at his side."'

President Williams from the committee appointed at the special 
meeting t(,) prepare resolutions in memory of Commissioner Treman 
presented the following report : 

"To the Board of Education : 

"Your committee appointed to prepare resolutions in memory of 
Commissioner Treman respectfully report the following :

the death of our esteemed fellow commissioner, Elias Treman, which 
occurred on the morning of October i, 1898 ; be it 

"Resolved, That we hereby record our profound realization of 
the severe blow that has fallen upon us, and upon our work, in this 
dispensation of an all-wise Providence, beneath which we humbly 
bow. We would place upon record, also, our high admiration for the 
character, abilities and business methods of the deceased, and our 
full appreciation of the notable aid his efforts have given to the 
advance of education and educational methods in this city. 

••Elias Treman entered this Board in 1885, since which he has 
been a leader among us ; and, not only by his personal efifort, but by 
his counsel and example, he has aided in the intelligent, methodical 
and harmonious prosecution of our work. 

"He was a man of unswerving integrity, unselfish purpose, and 
unfailing devotion to duty ; an untiring worker, a conservative adviser 
and a faithful friend. He conspicuously combined the wisdom and 
experience of age with the keen, active vigor of youth. He was out- 
spoken and frank in the expression of what he thought to be wise 
and right. He was noted for his superior business judgment, his 
thorough Christian honor and devoted personal friendship. 

"After his thirteen years of faithful service as a member of this 
Board, in which he has met with us regularly, performing with fidelity 
the duties of his office, we shall miss his cheery presence and his wise 
counsels. We mourn the loss of a kind friend, wise counsellor, and 
upright citizen. His memory will be cherished, and will inspire all 
who know him to emulate his virtues. 

•To his bereaved family we tender our warmest sympathy. 

•'To our schools and to our city, who have lost one of their 
strongest and wisest leaders, we commend the example of his life for

Frorh report to Board of Education by Supt. Foster, published 
in the Ithaca Journal, Oct. 6th, '98 : 

"In the death of Mr. Treman I feel a personal loss. Prompt, 
keen and frank, having the experience of age with the vigor of youth, 
he was quick to reach his decisions ; and was outspoken in his 
opinions. During all the time of his illness, his interest in the 
affairs of the schools- continued unabated and he inquired frequently 
concerning what was being done. I shall always treasure it as a 
valued memory that on the last evening when he was fully conscious 
he asked for me to come and see him. The same keen interest 
inspires every member of the Board, and it is this which makes it 
possible to make our work successful. 

"H. W. Foster, Sup't." 

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Ithaca Trust 
Company and upon the announcement of the death of Elias Treman, 
a member of such Board, it was ordered that the following memorial 
of our deceased associate be entered upon the records of the Com- 
pany and that a copy thereof, attested ofticially, be presented to the 
family of the deceased : 

"The death of Elias Treman, one of the Directors of this Com- 
pany, creates a new vacancy in our number, and leaves us the duty 
of joining in the wide sorrow for his loss and recalling the many 
traits of his character which made him not merely our business 
associate but our welcome and cherished friend. 

"He bad long been a resident of this city, and taken an active

part in promoting its growth and adding to its prosperity. The 
vigor and industry and intelligent care which he gave to his own 
affairs was fully developed in those enterprises which, beyond his 
personal interests, touched also the public welfare and affected the 
general health and safety. In the early lighting of our streets and 
homes, and, later, in the bountiful supply of water for the public 
safety and health, his business ability and courage found a wide and 
useful field of activity, with results not only beneficial to himself and 
his associates, but vitally essential to the health and security of the 
City, and which even yet we scarcely appreciate as they deserve. If, 
as is true, his private interest was the impelling motive of his share 
in the enterprise, at least it was directed to worthy and useful ends, 
and demanded of him and his associates a foresight and courage the 
utility of which for all of us we are slowly beginning to realize. 

"When the Trust Company was organized, and took its place 
quietly among the City's financial institutions, he came among us 
with the same business ability and watchful oversight which had 
carried his own enterprises to success, and beyond that, brought 
with him a constant cheerfulness, a playful bluntness of expression, 
and a regard for his associates lurking under a humorous welcome, 
which made us all his sincere and attached friends. That cheerful 
and kindly temperament followed him through the long days of his 
last illness and left him only at the end. 

"His place we can supply but cannot fill. We can only put upon 
our records this memorial of the man, and of the loss which as his 
business associates we have sustained. 

"We shall see his face no more, but he has left us the legacy of 
a sincere and lasting respect for his memory.

presence at the head of our Board. While denied all his usual 
activities and realizing only too well his own helpless physical condi- 
tion, he did not sorrow as one without hope, but gave to all who 
were privileged to minister to his needs, or to visit him for a moment, 
abundant evidence of heroic Christian fortitude and wonderful 
patience in waiting for the inevitable end. 

"The interest that he manifested in the welfare of the church he 
served so faithfully and so long, the brightness and cheer with which 
he encouraged those around him must be to his family, as it is to 
his friends, a source of great comfort. The end came on October 
I St and we, with the entire community, sorrow for one whose place 
can hardly be filled. 

Sixth Gp:neration. 121 

"Therefore, be it Resolved, That the Board of Trustees of the 
First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca extend to the family of our 
beloved President our deep and sincere sympathies in their bereave- 
ment and that we commend them to our Gracious Father above who 
alone can give them full consolation. 

"Resolved, That we desire here to testify to the faithful and 
unselfish services of our associate as trustee for more than twenty 
years, the last ten of which he served as President. We wish to bear 
testimony to his kindly consideration, his courteous treatment, his 
unfailing regularity and promptness in the despatch of business, and 
to his readiness to take upon himself much more than his share of 
the details of our woik. 

••Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the 
family and that they be spread upon the minutes of our Board.

••I have just received the Ithaca paper with the news of your 
father's death. 

••I need hardly say in what high regard 1 ever held him for I 
think you must know how long and at one period of his life how 
intimately 1 knew him and that was before and up to the time of his 
marriage. He was always just the manly man that his straight and 
manly figure symbolized. He was outspoken, you always knew where 
to find him on ever}- question of importance, political, local, social or 
religious that came up for discussion.

••My Dear Rob : — ■ 

"I want to express to you and the entire family my sincere 
sympathy in the great loss you haYe sustained. I have often thought 
since hearing of your father's accident how hard it must have been 
for one so full of energy and vitality to be afflicted as he was and 
though I hear he bore it with the utmost fortitude and resignation, I 
was thankful, for him and his family, when he was released from 
suffering. I know what it means to lose a father and how severe the 
shock is when the end finally comes, even though it has been for some 
time anticipated, and am truly sorry for you. The loss comes to you. as 
it did to me, after you had reached manhood and were well able to 
go alone — but you cannot help feeling that you have lost a strong 
prop and support and a wise and prudent counsellor. Your father 
will be sadly missed by many in Ithaca outside his immediate family — 
his strong personalitv having impressed itself on all who came in 
contact with him socially or in business. 

'•Yours truly.

"Dear Sir: — -The notice of your good father's death has come 
to us. and its saddening information brings a pang of deep sorrow to 
me, his long time personal and admiring friend. For more than 
forty years have I known and many times have I met him, and each 
time enjoying his presence more than the preceding. His hearty 
cheerfulness, his candor, his integrity, his old time lively, breezy 
ways, combined with his shrewdness and sagacity made him a 
delightful person to meet either in a social or business way. 

'•The first time I saw him, as perhaps I have told you. was soon 
after he was married, when he was living at the hotel — the 'Clinton.'

I think — and from the first I was interested in him, an interest that 
has increased as the years have gone by.

wishes for their comfort and consolation.

you and your mother and family at this sad time. 1 will not try to 
say more now. but you must know in what high respect I have always 
held your father for his upright, sterling character. You may not 
know, however, that it was he who largely influenced my father to 
send me to Cornell, and you can appreciate how much college meant 
for me. Please give especially my affectionate regards and sympathy

"My Dear Friend: — I received last evening from you the 
Ithaca News announcing the death of Flias Treman. I ha\e his 
countenance as clearly in my mind as when I left the dear old town. 

••Elias Treman was a man I shall never forget. My acquaintance 
with him was different of course than with you and others nearer 
my age, yet like Judge Finch with whom I studied law 1 could never 
forget Elias Treman. U'hile he was independent and fearless and 
did not stand on conventionalities, as I knew him he was so kind, 
considerate, thoughtful and gentlemanly toward those younger, that 
today I remember him with that high esteem and deep respect that 
the high, noble and manly qualities which he possessed ever command. 

•'In what I have said I hope you can recognize not only its 
truth but also recognize that my memory is not dim.

124 History of the Tremax Family. 

From the Ithaca Daily Journal, May i, 1899 : 

"The children of the Central School celebrated Arbor Day by 
planting trees and by appropriate exercises in their school rooms. 

"The Persian poet says : 'When a good man dies, all mortals 
weep, but the angels rejoice that his trials are ended, and that they 
have him amongst them.' 

"No man deserved this exquisite Eastern verse better than did 
Mr. Treman. 

"It is not necessary to mention here his munificent works of 
benevolence or devotion to public good. A Christian man, a faith- 
ful friend of the schools, a gentleman thorough in all good works, 
these describe one whom 'none knew him but to love him, none 
named him but to praise.' 

"To Mr. Elias Treman we dedicate this tree. May it ever be a 
reminder to cherish his memor)^ with affection, to be thankful for 
his example and to think of him now as in the 'light perpetual' of a 
glorified existence." 

From the Ithaca Daily Journal, Sept., '98 : 

"As the Journal goes to press this afternoon the Ithaca fire 
department is making its 39th annual parade in a broiling sun. 

"As the Protective Police marched by the stalwart form of Elias 
Treman was missed at their head. The company of Protective 
Police was organized in 1868 by Elias Treman and Joseph Esty. and 
today, for the first time in thirty years since its organization, Mr. 
Treman was absent from the line. This is a remarkable record, and 
probably cannot be duplicated by anyone connected with the Ithaca 
or any other department. The patient invalid, doubtless, had this in 
mind today when the strains of the band told of the fact that this 
was the annual parade of the department." 

Mrs. Treman gave to the new First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca, 
as a memorial to her husband, one of the finest organs in the countr)'. 

At the time of her death the Ithaca Daily Journal said : 

"Mrs. Treman was a member of the First Presbyterian Church 

of this city, and always took an active part in church work. She 

was a woman of very fine personal character, always cheerful, and 

by the geniality of her temperament won a large circle of warm

home, until death entered to mar its happiness."

and the Ithaca Water Works Company. Stockholder in the Lyceum 
Theatre Company. He was appointed, in 1862, by the Governor, as 
one of the Town Committee to raise volunteers for the Civil War. 

At the time of his death the Ithaca Daily News said of him : 

"Leander R. King, one of Ithaca's oldest and most highly 
respected business men, died this morning, shortly after 6 o'clock, at 
his home at No. 1 1 1 West Green Street. 

"Mr. King's last illness began about three weeks ago, while on 
a trip to Canada. At Tadousac he had a very severe attack of 
angina pectoris, but recovered sufficiently to return home, which he 
did about ten days ago. 

"Since that time he has been confined to the house, but up to 
the very last his family entertained great hopes of his ultimate 
recovery. The end came quite suddenly and until a few minutes 
before his death it was supposed that he was getting better. Then 
indications were seen that denoted a change and the end came 
quietly and peacefully. 



Sixth Generation. 141 

"Leander King was born at Trumansburg, February 3rd, 1828. 
At an early age his family moved to Albany where he received his 
early education. He came to this city at the age of 23 and entered 
the employ of Treman Brothers, who were then engaged in the hard- 
ware business on the present site of the store. In the year 1857, 
Mr. King was taken into the partnership and the new firm did busi- 
ness under the name Treman, King & Co. Mr. King continued as a 
member of the firm until 1870 when he was obliged to retire from; 
business on account of his health. After a year of complete rest in 
California, he was able to resume his work, and upon his return to- 
this city he re-entered the firm, where he continued his interests up 
to the time of his death. 

"Mr. King was the senior member of the present firm, Treman, 
Kmg c^ Co., and the last survivor of the original firm which consisted 
of himself and the three brothers, Leonard, Lafayette, and Elias 
Treman. Mr. King was a cousin of his partners. 

"For many years Mr. King has been closely identified with 
many of the principal business interests of this city. He has been a 
director of the Tompkins County National Bank since '71, and he 
was also a director of the Ithaca Water Works Company, and a 
principal stockholder in the Lyceum Opera House Company. Mr. 
King was a genial gentleman and his social qualities made him many 
friends. He has always been a successful business man and his 
judgment on financial matters was respected by his associates. For 
years he has been a prominent member of St. John's Protestant 
Episcopal Church and was at one time a vestryman. His life was an 
exemplary one, and his demise is mourned by the whole city." 

He died Sept. 20, 1900, at Ithaca. Residence Ithaca. N. Y.

The following account of the Tremain Family Reunion at the 

144 History of the Tremax Family. 

home of James K. Tremain and the historical address delivered by 
him is from the Genoa Tribune of July 7, 1893 : 

"West Venice, N. Y., June 29, 1893. 

"A grand occasion was the Tremain Centennial Picnic which 
has been held at the residence of James K. Tremain today. 

"The day has been remarkably pleasant and no place could 
have been chosen more appropriate for this occasion, since it was 
just one hundred years ago that the father of James K. Tremain, 
Benjamin Tremain, built his log cabin in the woods, and with his 
family began life on the very ground where the tables were spread 
today. Neither could a pleasanter spot have been chosen than the 
spacious and shady lawn fronting his residence. 

"For many weeks, James K. Tremain, the only survivor of a 
family of ten children, has labored unceasingly perfecting arrange- 
ments for this reunion whereby the descendants, many of whom have 
never met, might come together and celebrate this the centennial of 
his father's settlement on this spot, and his heart has been truly 
gladdened by so many responses from different parts of the Union. 

"Carriages kept coming until at noon one hundred and fifty were 
comfortably seated at the tables which were groaning under their 
load of good things. Rev. E. A. Peck offered thanks, then associa- 
tion and appetite strove for the greater endurance. After dinner 
the relatives were grouped together and views were taken of the 
gathering by Wm. Battey, of Rochester, with a kodak manufactured 
at that place. During all this time sweet music was being discoursed 
by Moravia's popular orchestra. 

"After this came a delightful little programme of exercises 
presided over by Geo. Truman, of Nashville, Michigan. The 
exercises were opened with prayer by Rev. E. A. Peck, of Ledyard, 
the orchestra following with a tine selection. The address of welcome 
was delivered by James K. Tremain in a manner which none could 
help feeling was indeed a welcome from the heart. It was neatly 
responded to by Rev. U'eslev Mason of Skaneateles. A quartette 
from Ledyard favored the company with a choice selection after 
which a poem, written for tlie occasion, was read by C. M. Swift, of 
Cortland. Another of the orchestra's fine selections was then neatly 
rendered when came a historical sketch given by James K. Tremain, 
a portion of which we cannot help repeating. He says: 

Sixth Generation. 145 

'"In a backward glance, covering a period of one hundred years, 
justice would demand of me an impossibility under existing 

'' "In the presentation of this historical sketch, I am somewhat 
embarrassed as the ancient records, dating back to the emigration of 
the Tremain family, four brothers, from England to America in 1666, 
were destroyed at the burning of my house in 1862. 

'" 'In the rush and push and cry of hard times that reach us on 
every hand in this last decade of the nineteenth century, it is well to 
pause and consider : Who laid the foundations of this Great Republic ? 
Who rushed to the front to drive back an invading foe ? Who felled 
the mighty forests unaided by modern implements ? 

" 'With the primitive ax, patient ox and mammoth chain came 
together the logs with which the cabin of the pioneer was builded. 
Well may we honor the memory of the fathers, though dead their 
works remain, while we reap the reward of their labors. It is fitting 
and right that the descendants, friends and neighbors should assemble 
to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of this settlement. 

" -Philip Tremain and family are supposed to be the first settlers 
in this vicinity, locating on this farm in 1793, erecting a cabin in 
about the center of this yard, digging this well from which hung the 
old oaken bucket that has supplied the family with pure cold water 
for a century. 

•• -In 1790, the family emigrated from the Bay State to the then 
far West. The route over which they came to Cayuga County with 
their household goods was toilsome in the extreme. The Hudson 
river furnished means for reaching Albany. Between that point and 
the Mohawk great difficulties were met. Sixteen miles over sand 
barrens to Little Falls. There a portage was made. The canoes 
and light boats were carried by men while the large ones were drawn 
by oxen. The time required to make the journey from Schenectady 
to Cayuga Lake was twenty days. The family made the first settle- 
ment where Trumansburg now stands, my father felling the first tree, 
giving the hamlet the name of Tremainsville, later changed to 

" 'In the month of March, 1793, with their household goods on 
a sled drawn by oxen, the}- came around the head of the Lake, follow- 
ing the shore to the mouth of Salmon Creek, taking that to the forks. 

146 History of the Tremax Family. 

thence the Little Sahnon to Section 83 and 84, where they purchased 
185 acres and again commenced life in the woods. The family then 
consisted of Philip, his wife, Anna, and sons, Benjamin and William. 

" 'A few years later my father married Phoebe Kartwright. 
They became the parents of ten children, eight sons and two 
daughters, all reaching man's estate. 

" 'My grandfather was a soldier in the Revolutionary war, my 
father in the War of 18 12 and grandsons in the late war. 

" 'The early towns were very large. Whites Town, founded in 
1788, embraced the entire State west of Utica. The first election 
was held at Cayuga Ferry. Voters living as far east as Utica came 
to vote, a distance of eighty miles. 

" 'The settlers in coming into the wilderness did not leave their 
Puritan training behind them but gathered in the cabins, holding 
religious meetings. In 1833, the M. E. Church was organized at 
Ledyard. Father united there and was an earnest worker until his 
death. He walked to church in the morning, was taken ill in class 
and died that night, aged 77 years. Father was a public spirited 
man, was largely interested in the reforms of the day, especially the 
Anti-Slavery and Temperance movements. Slaves were then held 
in Cayuga County. I have yet to learn that either of my brothers 
ever used intoxicating drinks, although raised when whisky was con- 
sidered indispensable. 

" 'After quite an extensive correspondence, I have found the 
direct descendants. My father's grandchildren located in eight 
different States from Oregon to Florida, each of my brothers and 
sisters having living representatives. Four generations are repre- 
sented here today. A great and rare privilege that so large a number 
are permitted to have communication today. The absent present in 
spirit passing from the first to the second century.' 

"x\t the conclusion of Mr. Tremain's remarks he was congratu- 
lated by the relatives for so complete and interesting history of the 
family, and requested that for the benefit of the many relatives who 
were unable to attend it might be printed. 

"The further exercises of the hour were taken up in volunteer 
speeches, indulged in by Mr. Ross Tremain, of Ohio, and Rev. Mr. 
Peck, of Ledyard. 

"In conclusion, Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Tremain were presented 

Sixth Generation. 147 

with an elegant Silver Water Set in appreciation of the early tem- 
perance training in the house. 

"The company separated feeling that they had been abundantly 
paid for the effort of coming together."

The following interesting letter was written by him : 

"Binghamton, Oct. 11, 1898. 
"To THE Editor of The Journal : 

"Sir : — I read with much interest your article in The Journal 
of Oct. I, 1898, written upon the event of the death of the lamented 
Elias Treman of Ithaca. 

"I hope it will be pardonable for me to attempt to correct your 
article that it may accord with the chronological history of the Tru- 
man family in this country. 

1 68 History of the Treman Family. 

"The first representative of the family to come to America was 
Joseph Truman who settled in New London, Conn., in 1666. The 
following year 1667 he was elected to the office of constable. He 
continued his residence there until his death which occurred in 1697. 
His will which is on file was dated the year prior to his death in 
which he bequeaths his property to his five children, Joseph, Thomas, 
Elizabeth, Mary and Ann. 

"Joseph married Mary Shapley, daughter of Benjamin Shapley, 
Dec. 5, 1 701. They had four children, John, Simeon, Nathaniel 
and Benjamin. 

"John Truman, the first child of Joseph, married and they had 
nine children, Jonathan, Eliza, Philip, John, Gaines, Julius, Daniel, 
Abner and Jared. 

"Abner, next to the youngest, born in 1761, entered the army of 
the revolution in 1777 and became distinguished for his bravery: 
his son, Ashbel, was the father of the late Elias Treman. 

"The Truman family in Owego are direct descendants of Simeon 
Truman, the second son of Joseph and Mary Shapley his wife. 

'•The writer is a direct descendant of Thomas Truman, who was 
born in New London, Conn., A. D. 1681, and died there Jan. 15. 
1747, he being the second son of Joseph Truman, who came from 
England in 1666 as before stated. I am much indebted for the 
knowledge I have been able to obtain of the Truman family in 
America, to George Truman, Esq., of Owego, N. Y., to the late Mrs. 
Christopher B. Arnold, of Providence, R. L, who in 1858 permitted 
me to make extracts from the record of a very old family Bible in 
her possession, which formerly belonged to her grandfather, Jonathan 
Truman, of New London (my great grandfather), and also to 'New 
England Chronological History,' by Savage, a work of great merit. 
My conclusions, after giving the subject much attention, are that the 
name Treman and Tremain and Trueman were all primarily and 
purely from the English name Truman, of New London in 1666, and 
that the exciting and disrupting scenes during the long years of the 
revolution and the conglomeration of nationalities, the Babel of 
tongues, are responsible for the different ways of spelling names of 
the oldest families in the United States. 

"Very respectfully yours, 

"James C. Truman

The National Cyclopedia of American Biography says of him : 
"Henry H. Truman, son of Daniel Henry and Cordelia (Mead) 
Truman, was born in Greenwich, Conn., Feb. 7, 1847. After the

usual preparatory course in the rudimentary branches, he was sent 
to the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. After completing his studies, 
he left on one day's notice to begin his business career with the firm 
of Le Grand Lockwood & Co., Wall Street brokers and bankers. 
His salary was small at first, but his progress was rapid, and he was 
so well liked by his employers, that his advance was rapid, and it 
was but a few years before he received a large salary. The failure 
of the firm in 1869, threw him out of employment, but with the 
money he had saved he was enabled the same year to start in busi- 
ness for himself, having in 1869 purchased a seat in the Stock 
Exchange. He was successful from the start, but default of one for 
whom he was doing business necessitated a suspension in 187 1. He 
subsequently met every dollar of his obligations. In 1871 he entered 
into partnership with Roswell P. Flower (later Governor of New York) 
and E. C. Benedict, under the firm name of Benedict, Flower &: Co. 
This firm passed through the great panic of '73 with credit unimpaired. 
The firm dissolved in 1875. I" ^^7^ ^^- Fruman entered into an 
arbitrage business, that is buying and selling shares and bonds be- 
tween New York and London or other cities. Mr. Truman was for a 
time a member of the Petroleum Exchange. He was a member of 
the Governing Committee and Chairman of the Membership Com- 
mittee of the Consolidated Exchange, after the union of the Mining 
and Petroleum Exchanges. He withdrew from this Exchange in 
1885, as the rules of the Stock Exchange at that time prohibited 
membership in the Consolidated Exchange. Later he has also be- 
come a member of the N. Y. Produce Exchange. 

"Mr. Truman settled in Orange in 1885, and three years later he 
purchased a fine building site on the S. W. corner of Lincoln and 
Highland Avenues, where he erected a beautiful villa, comprising 
the best of modern architectural features known as the American 
Domestic, the first story being of Belleville brown stone, the stories 
above it of frame. 

"At the time Mr. Truman was asked to accept the nomination 
for the mayoralty of Orange, he had not been in public life nor had 
he ever taken any interest in politics. It was known that he was a 
staunch Republican and being a man of the highest reputation, his 
constituents believed that these qualifications would insure the suc- 
cessful administration of the affairs of Orange. Before entering 

Sixth Generation. 171 

upon his duties Mr, Truman made himself thoroughly familiar with 
the condition of public afifairs and of the needs of the city, and 
pledged himself to use his best endeavors to influence for good gov- 
ernment. No one questioned his honesty, his integrity or his busi- 
ness capacity to execute the plans he formulated. His ability, how- 
ever, to carry forward the work, and execute the laws as he inter- 
preted them was largely dependent on the cooperation of those asso- 
ciated with him. A difference of opinion as to the best methods of 
accomplishing the desired results, caused some friction and by the 
close of his first year's administration it was generally understood 
that Mr. Truman would not approve of any improper legislation. 
His second message at the beginning of 1891 showed that he was 
fully conversant with every department of the city and his recom- 
mendations received the most careful consideration. His presenta- 
tion of the city's financial condition was a most able exhibit, and 
showed his familiarity with all the details. His recommendation to 
the council that an effort be made to have the new issues of bonds 
exempt from taxation and the advisability of issuing long bonds, 
evinced great wisdom and forethought. 

"He said truly that 'as the growth of the city continues the cost 
of the permanent improvements, which are now being made, and 
which benefit all proportionately, can be, and shall be, paid for by 
those who receive the ultimate benefit.' Mr. Truman urged that the 
system of sewerage so long under consideration should be pushed 
forward with all possible diligence and recommended the issue of 
four per cent bonds in such amounts as would enable citizens who 
were not property holders to invest and thus become interested in 
the affairs of the city. Mr. Truman referred to the Board of Educa- 
tion in praiseworthy terms, having made a personal investigation of 
the schools. Referring to the Police Department he recommended 
that all appointees should be required to pass a physical examination, 
and that any who were unfit for duty should be retired or dismissed ; 
he also recommended that a patrol service be introduced and that 
'call boxes' be established in different parts of the city, which would 
do away with at least one roundsman and give more efficient service. 
Mr. Truman called special attention to the valuable franchises granted 
by the city to railroad and other corporations, and to the small 
amount of revenue received by the city from these sources and rec- 

172 History of the Tremax Family. 

oiTimended a plan which would insure a large annual revenue. No 
man ever labored more earnestly in the interests of a community, or 
worked more faithfully to effect the desired reforms than did Mr. 
Truman and when it is considered that his time and his energies were 
expended in this direction without any compensation whatever, he 
certainly earned and fully deserves the lasting gratitude of his fellow 

"During his residence of sixteen years or more, in Orange, Mr. 
Truman has given much time and attention to the moral and relig- 
ious interests of the community. Before coming to Orange he was a 
member of the Church of the Incarnation of New York, he was con- 
firmed by Bishop Potter in the Church of the Holy Trinity, Brooklyn, 
in i860. He was long a member of Grace Episcopal Church of 
Orange. He contributed to the building of St. Andrews Episcopal 
Church at Montrose Park, South Orange. At the first meeting of 
the new parish for organization he was proposed for and elected to 
the office of Senior Warden. He is also interested in the work of 
the Young Men's Christian Association, having been one of the early 
members of the Orange Association and later assisted in the organi- 
zation of the Orange Valley Association, of which Association he was 
the President. He is a man of strong religious convictions, thought- 
ful, earnest, painstaking and imbued with a sincere desire to be help- 
ful to others and to benefit his fellowmen. He is a member of the 
New England Society of Orange, the Orange Lawn Tennis Club and 
other organizations. 

"Mr. Truman married Julia M. Judson, a daughter of Charles 
Gideon Judson of New York City, formerly of Woodbury, Conn., a 
son of Charles and Fannie (Marvin) Judson, son of Elijah, son of 
Gideon, born March 8, 1748, son of Elijah (born 17 15) and Sarah 
(HoUister) Judson, son of Jonathan, 1682, son of John, who was one 
of the original signers of the Fundamental Articles for the settle- 
ment of Woodbury, in 1672. He was the son of Lieut. Joseph, 
eldest son of William Judson, who came from Yorkshire, England, in

At the time of his inauguration as Mayor an Orange newspaper 
said of him : 

"The inauguration of Henry H. Truman as tenth Mayor of 
Orange on Tuesday evening, March 25, 1890, was an eventful period 
in the history of Orange. His predecessor, Mayor Hartford, had 
held the position for twelve consecutive years, first as a Democrat, 
and for nine years as the People's candidate. Mayor Truman, 
although not a politician was elected by the Republican vote. On 
taking his seat he was heartily congratulated by his predecessor, wh& 
in his closing remarks said : 'Now that I am about to retire it gives 
me unbounded pleasure to know that my successor is a gentlemani 
whose name is above reproach, and who I am confident, will have 
only the city's best interest at heart.' Mayor Hartford was over- 
come by his emotions and was compelled to sit down. Mr. Truman 
returned thanks for the hearty welcome extended him and especially 
for the 'kind words of his predecessor, who had served so long and 

"The Truman family from which Henry H. Truman is descended 
is identified with the early history of the Connecticut colony. The 
origin of the name was undoubtedly, as the spelling indicates, Truman 
or Trueman, meaning a true man and this has been a characteristic 
of the family through every generation. 

"I. Joseph Truman, the ancestor, was born in England, and 
came to America with his family, which consisted of five children, 
viz : Joseph, Thomas, Eliza, Mary and Ann. He settled in New 
London, Conn., in 1666 and was chosen constable the next year 
where he died in 1697. The records show that 'he purchased some 
pits for tanning from Alexander Piggins in 1670.' Truman's Brook 
and Truman Street derive their names from this family. 

"H. Joseph Truman (2) son of Joseph (ij settled in New 
London. He with 77 others received a grant of land, Oct. 14, 1704, 
from the Governor and Company of Her Majesty's Colony of Con- 
necticut in General Court assembled by authority of Letters Patent 
given to them by Charles H, dated 23rd April, 1663. This was a 
part of the addition made to the bounds of New London, which 
included the Mohegan reservation which had long been claimed by 
the town, but not legally included in their bounds. The grant was

of Newark. 

"Joseph Truman (2) married Mary (born 26 March, 1677) 
daughter of Capt. Benjamin Shapley (son of Nicholas, (who was the 
son of Alexander Shapley, born in England. Chosen Treasurer of 
the Province of Maine 1649. Captain 1653, Major 1656, Magistrate 
1662, next to the right worshipful Henry Josselyn) and Mary Pickett, 
daughter of John and Ruth Pickett (Brewster). The children of 
Joseph and Mary (Shapley) Truman were Elizabeth, Eliza, Joseph, 
John, Jane, Benjamin and Daniel. 

•'HI. Daniel Truman, the youngest child of Joseph and Mary 
(Shapley) Truman, was born in New London, Conn., Oct. 24, 1717,

Dennis, Dec. 10, 1741. She died March 26, 1801, aged 81 years.

3350. Hon. Lyman Truman. (Aaron-\ Shem-', Benjamin', 
Joseph", Joseph".) mi. He was born March 2, 1806, at Park 
Settlement in the Town of Candor, Tioga Co., N. Y. He married, 
Jan. 10, 1838, Emily M. Goodrich (daughter of Aner Goodrich and 
Ruth Stratton, Noah Goodrich who removed in 1802 from Conn., 
and located in what is known as Goodrich Settlement, in the Town 
of Tioga, near Owego, Tioga Co., N. Y.) She was born Dec. 30, 
181 7. He removed in 1830 to Owego, N, Y. He was a merchant 
nearly all his life. He became very wealthy. He founded, in 1836, 
the firm of L. Truman & Brothers which conducted a mercantile and 
lumber business for about half a century. President of the Bank of 
Owego and its successor the First National Bank of Owego from 
1856 until a short time prior to his death. He was a Republican in 
politics. Supervisor. State Senator, 1857-63. 

The History of Four Counties, so-called, says of him : 

"Hon. Lyman Truman is at the present time the leading busi- 
ness man of Tioga County, and its wealthiest citizen. He was also, 
until a recent period, the leading Republican politician of that 
county. His life is a remarkable example of what one can accom- 
plish, unaided and alone, without any external advantages of wealth 
or family, in working out for himself a successful personal career by 
force of character and a temperate, moral, industrious, and economi- 
cal habit of life. 

"He started a poor boy, on a farm remote from any business 
locality, the eldest of a family of ten children, of whorh Aaron Truman 
was the father. 

"Aaron Truman was born in Granville, Mass., and came to 
Owego in the year 1804, where he married the following year Miss 
Experience Parks of Candor. Lyman Truman, the brother of 
Aaron, came in 1808, and Asa H., another brother, followed about 18 14. 

"Lyman Truman, the subject of this memoir, was born March 
2, 1806. Aaron, the father of a large family, died in 1822, when 
Lyman was but sixteen years of age. The only property left by the 
deceased to his family was a small farm of sixty acres, incumbered 
with a debt greater than its value ; and it was due to the sympathy 
of creditors -only that the household was not driven from its humble 
shelter, which was but little better than a cabin, located on a farm. 
By the blessing of Providence, the mother, who was endowed with 


'"^■^ iySanmd Sir'"' 



Sixth Generation. 177 

remarkable sagacity and energ)-, so admirably stimulated and directed 
the efforts of the young but industrious and untiring family, that 
within three years she not only succeeded in paying the heavy debt, 
but erected a comfortable house, that still remains as a monument to 
their thrift, ^-'rom the death of his father until the year 1830, Lyman 
continued to follow the drudgery of day and farm labor, raising and 
carting the produce of the farm to market, making shingles, and 
sawing and selling boards. 

"Of course the intervals of labor in such an overtasked youth 
left but a few scanty weeks for schooling, at the district school 
before, but not after, his father's death. These brief intervals were 
improved, however, with the same energy that has characterized all 
of the subsequent career of the man. 

"In 1830 he left the farm and became a clerk in the store of his 
uncle, Asa H. Truman, at the village of Owego, N. Y. He rapidly 
acquired the skill and tact in trade that made him desirable as a 
partner, and enabled him soon to start in business for himself, though 
without capital, as a member of the firm of Greenleaf & Truman, 
composed of John M. Greenleaf and himself. 

"In 1836, with a magnanimity and love for his family that have 
characterized all his subsequent arrangements, he brought three of 
his brothers, Orin, Francis and George, from the farm, and sharing 
with them what he had earned, associated them with himself, under 
the firm name that has since become distinguished in the locality for 
its credit and solidity, of 'L. Truman & Brothers.' This firm, for 
certain purposes, continued until the present time, 1879. 

"From 1836 onward, uniform success, unchecked by any con- 
siderable reverse or misfortune, has marked the business career of 
Lyman Truman. 

"That success has been largely due to the strong native sense 
and almost unerring sagacity that has rapidly solved, with instinctive 
accuracy, every business problem that presented itself ; he having 
never engaged in any speculation, except an extensive purchase, at 
government prices, of Illinois lands in 1856, which proved very 
remunerative. These lands were skillfully located before any settle- 
ment of the region, in the vicinity of streams and along the lines 
which their sagacity predicted prospective railroads must take. In 
the profits of this enterprise he generously associated the other 
members of the firm of L. Truman & Brothers with himself. 

178 History of the Treman Family. 

"In 1856 he was elected President of the Bank of Owego, and 
continued to hold that office until that institution became the First 
National Bank of Owego, of which he is still the president and 
principal stockholder, 1879. 

"In 1857 he was elected State Senator from the senatorial 
district composed of Tioga, Tompkins and Broome ; and continued 
to be elected to that position for three successive terms. His strong 
native sagacity, and his known integrity, gave him a commanding 
influence in that body ; and although he made no pretensions to 
skill as a public debater, yet, even in that capacity, the directness 
with which he addressed himself to the subject under debate, the 
promptness w-ith which he laid open the real point at issue, and the 
personally independent, frank, and outspoken fashion in which he 
treated all the influences at w'ork to defeat measures that he favored, 
made him a formidable antagonist in debate. His original style and 
manner had a certain peculiar relish, and his home thrusts remark- 
able point and force. 

"When the War of the Rebellion broke out, Mr. Truman was, 
as a matter of course, one of the foremost in favor of every measure 
calculated to bring the war to a speedy issue, and from its very com- 
mencement he contributed largely to the support of the families of 
ten volunteers. 

"Dunng all of Mr. Truman's active life his pecuniary help, and 
his invaluable personal direction and superintendence, have been 
often sought, and largely and successfully given to carrying business 
friends over difficult and embarrassing emergencies in their affairs. 
When, in 1849, ^ ^^^ nearly destroyed the principal business portion 
of Owego, he was largely influential and active in rebuilding it, 
expending a large part of his own means, not very profitably, for 
that purpose. He has always been a ready contributor to public 
enterprises, and very helpful to many in the way of private charities. 

"Since he left the Senate, Mr. Truman has retired from political 
life, the cares of his large property interests, now estimated by his 
neighbors at upwards of a million of dollars, demanding his exclusive 
attention. Over all, however, that bears the name of 'Truman,' the 
ex-Senator, as the head of the house, still extends, as ever, his 
supervisory care, and from time to time, as needed, his kindly and 
never-failing pecuniary and personal help." 

Sixth Generation. 179 

Our County and its People (Tioga), by L. W. Kingman, says of 


"Lyman Park Truman was from 1833 until his death in 1881 
the most conspicuous citizen of the county in the lines of its com- 
mercial activity, and the impress of his indomitable will and keen 
business acumen was seen far beyond its limits. He was a natural 
financier, a man of creative impress and of original and highly suc- 
cessful methods. Where other men could see only ordinary condi- 
tions his brain would discern far-reaching possibilities, which under 
his almost unerring sagacity would develop into vast sources of 
wealth, business activity or political power. He was blessed with 
natural advantages. He came of a long line of stalwart New England 
ancestors who so conserved -their vital forces as to strengthen the 
stock with each generation, and he possessed a massive physique 
with wonderful powers of endurance and a brain large and com- 
mensurate with his great body. From the commencement of his 
commercial activity, little by little, steadily and continually, the 
influence of his personality expanded until all the circles of business 
energy existing in a wide radius were controlled by impulses projected 
by his brain. He never imitated. Whatever successes others won, 
mattered nothing to him. He developed his own plans, perfect in 
detail from conception to consummation, and dictated to others the 
methods to insure success. He -dominated his associates and his 
ideas became theirs. He attached men to him so that their aid and 
service resembled the loyal devotion of the ancient vassal to his liege 
lord, and he never allowed contradiction. In everything in which he 
had part his will was law. Although holding local office to some 
extent and ably serving three terms in the State Senate, his home 
was in the region of business and finance. There his nature was 
given full play and the result was the acquisition of great fortunes 
for his own and others' enjoyment. Had his lot been cast in the 
broader opportunities of New York City and the more responsive 
atmosphere of Wall Street, Lyman Truman would have shown him- 
self facile princeps among the moneyed Napoleons and financial 
kings of that great metropolis."

Co., 1837. She died Sept. 12, 1895. 

At the time of her death the Owego Times said : 

"She was a woman given to dispensing alms, helping the needy, 
anxious to relieve suffering and distress, whenever she found them. 
Time can never reveal what she has done to lighten the burden of 
other lives. Many will rise up in eternity to thank her. 'Let her 
own works praise her.' 

"Of her love for the Church, and her intense interest in its 
prosperity, too much cannot be said. When unable, longer, to 
attend upon the services of the sanctuary, by reason of infirmity, she 
was always inquiring as to Zion's welfare. Often has she been heard 
to say, T do love the Church,' and none who knew her at all, can 
doubt that she did. The Congregational Church has lost a true, 
earnest and faithful member, and while the Church on earth has 
been made the poorer by her departure, the society of the redeemed 
in heaven has been enriched by her coming to them. 

"Of the sacred and tender relationship in the home, we need 
say but little. There was cheer and sunshine about her home-life, 
which was a blessing to all who came under its influence. 'Her 
children rise up and call her blessed.' The sisters and brothers 
know something of the richness and preciousness of that home-life. 
They feel to exclaim in the words of Scripture, 'Many daughters 
have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.' The large number 
present at her funeral on Sunday afternoon attest, more loudly than 
words can, the high esteem in which she was held by all. On that 
occasion her pastor, Rev. C. M. Bartholomew-, chose for a text, Luke 
II, 37, speaking of the old age of Christian faith and confidence as it 
applied to her life and its work. Renan has said, 'The highest style 
of living is to live so, that in ceasing to live, one does not cease to 
be loved.' Be that as it may, one thing is certain, our dear friend is 
still loved. Reviewing such a life and observing its happy, triumphant 
end, one feels like saying with one of old, 'Let me die the death of 
the righteous, and let my last end be like his.' "

3640. Hon. Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich. (Anan E. Aldrich 
and Abby Burgess.) He was born Nov. 6, 1841, in Foster, R. I. 
He married, Oct. 9, 1866, Abbie Pierce Chapman. 1236. He 
received an academic education ; engaged in mercantile pursuits, 
and was President of the Common Council of Providence, R. I., 
1872-3. Representative, 1875 ; Speaker, 1876. Member of Con- 
gress, 1879-81. United States Senator from Rhode Island since 1881.

dence since 1877. Director in Roger Williams Bank. He was one 
of the incorporators of the Mechanics' Savings Bank. Director in 
Hartford and Fishkill R. R. Company. Prominent member of 
Masonic fraternity. 

The Cyclopedia of American Biographies, by John Howard 
Brown, says of him : 

"Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich, Senator, was born in Foster, R. I., 
Nov, 6, 1 841. His early education was acquired at Killingly, Conn. 
He then attended the academy at East Greenwich, R. L, and when 


Sixth Generation. 189 

graduated began a business life at Providence, R. I. His practical 
interest in city affairs caused him to be elected in the City CounciJ 
from 1869-75, and from 1872-3 he was its President. On leaving 
the Council he was elected as a Republican to the General Assembly 
of the state, and in 1876 was Speaker of the House. In 1878 he 
was elected to represent his district in the 46th, and was re-elected 
in 1880 to the 47th Congress. His practical business methods 
applied to legislation so increased the confidence he had already 
won in the state, that in 1881 he was elected by the Rhode Island 
legislature to the vacancy in the United States Senate, caused by the 
death of Ambrose E. Burnside. He was re-elected in 1886 and 
again in 1892. During his several terms, he served on important 
committees, notably on that of finance, on which he was retained 
during his entire term of service in the Senate. He thus became 
thoroughly familiar with the intricate questions of finance and tarift", 
and Senators accorded him an attentive hearing whenever he had 
occasion to present his views. Large credit is due to Senator 
Aldrich for the reciprocity features introduced in the McKinley tariff 
bill, his suggestions being accepted, after the proposition made by 
Mr. Blaine had been discussed and dropped by mutual consent. In 
his subsequent career in the Senate he has been prominent in the 
discussion of the great financial questions that arose in Congress and 
was conspicuous as an earnest advocate of mono-metallism." 

They have four children. Residence, igoi. Providence, R. 1. 

Children : 

3641. Abbie Greene. The newspapers of the country of Aug. 27, 190 1. 
announced her engagenient to John Davidson Rockefeller, Jr. 
The wedding day is Oct. 9, 1901. The New York Journal of 
Aug. 27, 1901, says of her : "The engagenient of Miss Abbie 
G. Aldrich, second daughter of the millionaire Senator from 
Rhode Island, to John D. Rockefeller, Jr., only son of the 
Standard Oil king and heir presumptive to the greatest fortune 
in the world, was announced yesterday. She is handsome, 
brilliant, a favorite of society, the bearer of a distinguished 
name ; he is stalwart, earnest, pious, rich even without his 
great expectations, a business man. They are about the same 
age — twenty-six — and they have been in each other's thoughts 
since he was a college student at Brown and used to visit at 
Senator Aldrich's big town house, on Bennett Street, Provi- 

I90 History of the Treman Family. 

dence, and at the villas at Warwick Neck. The same wire 
that brings news of the betrothal carries the intelligence that 
young Rockefeller is negotiating for the purchase of Rocky 
Point, the most beautiful shore resort on Narragansett Bay, 
which adjoins his future father-in-law's place. The match is 
no surprise ; it has been an understood thing for some time, 
and society's main interest in the event concerns the future of 
the young pair who will start in wedlock so well endowed. 
Miss Abbie Aldrich has not been more conspicuous in church 
circles than most young ladies of her station in society, while 
the young man has been a leader in Baptist circles ever since he 
came from college. He is treasurer of the Fifth Avenue Sun- 
day School, and has always seemed to dread the responsibility 
of the great wealth that will be his, rather than to consider it a 
means to promote his own pleasure. He is fond of speaking 
before religious bodies and has been known to refer to himself 
as a steward from whom an accounting would one day be 
demanded. Now the question is : will she make a society man 
of him, and will the Rockefeller name become a synonym for 
the magnificent entertainments she is so competent to give, or 
will he make a devotee of her ? Or, will each adopt something 
of the other's character and make the house of Rockefeller 
famous alike for piety and for social splendor ? When the 
young man was at Brown he was the manager of the football 
team and displayed his business quality by making the football 
team self-supporting for the first time in the college's history. 
He was a very democratic j^oung fellow at college, made no 
display of his wealth, and though the football and his fraternity, 
Alpha Delta Phi, took much of his time, he was a good deal of 
a grind at his studies. He was at college to learn, and it is his 
nature to get the full worth of anything he goes into. It was 
through his influence that his father gave 1500,000 to Brown 
University last fall. Young Rockefeller has had few diversions 
since he left the university. He rode horseback a little, but 
his life lay mainly between the offices of the Standard Oil 
Company and the Baptist Church. Recently he has emerged 
in a small degree from his retirement, and last week organized 
a dancing class, which will meet at Delmonico's four times' 
next season. This is probably the greatest dissipation of which 
he has ever been guilty. As a business man he won his spurs 
in Leather stock a year ago. He bought in 700 shares of 
Leather at 1 1 to 20 and sold it at 30 or 40, thus making his first 
million. He went into the Standard Oil offices as a clerk and 
ran the gamut of the office routine. Now he is supposed to be 
competent to take his father's place and handle his vast hold- 
ings whenever he is called on to assume that great responsibility. 

Sixth Generation. 191 

His life is as regular as that of a boy at a military school. He 
rises at 6:30 a. m.; from 7 to quarter of 8 he exercises — walking 
or chopping wood. He takes half an hour to breakfast, catches 
the 8:40 train at Tarrytown for New York, goes immediately to 
his office and remains there, except for half an hour for 
luncheon, until 3:15 p. m., when he returns to Tarrj-town. He 
drives for an hour and then dines, and by 9:30 is in bed. His 
prospective father-in-law was a grocery merchant of very mod- 
erate fortune in Providence until he went into politics. Thirt)- 
years ago he became President of the Providence Common 
Council. In 1876 he was a member of the Rhode Island General 
Assembly. He went to Congress, and in 1880 became a United 
States Senator. He is a member of the Committees on Finance, 
Pensions and Ordinance and Warships and Chairman of trans- 
portation routes to the seaboard. He is said to have been the 
real author of the McKinley tariff bill. His position, apart 
from the Government, is President of the United Traction 
Company, of Providence. The bride-to-be had a narrow escape 
last month. She was on the yacht Wild Duck when it ran 
down the Joy Liner Tremont in Long Island Sound." The 
New^ York W^orld of Sept. i, 1901, says of her : "Miss Abby 
G. Aldrich, second daughter of the senior United States Senator 
from Rhode Island, who is to become the wife of John D. 
Rockefeller, Jr., the man who will probably be the first 
billionaire in the history of the world, is a cultured, brilliant 
and serious-minded young woman. Notwithstanding her 
father's long residence in Washington, she has passed most of 
her life in Providence, where she was born. Usually in the 
winter she goes to Aiken, N. C. The great social functions of 
the capital seemingly have no charm for her, although it has 
been stated that Senator .\ldrich has taken a mansion in Wash- 
ington this winter and will entertain, with Mrs. Aldrich and 
his two daughters, Miss Lucy T. and Miss Abby, as hostesses. 
Heretofore the Aldriches have lived at the Arlington Hotel and 
have done no entertaining, as Mrs. Aldrich and the girls have 
not been in Washington more than .six months all told during 
the long service of Mr. Aldrich in the Senate. Probablv the 
most interesting fact about Miss Aldrich is that, except in the 
most general way, she does not care for society and its frivoli- 
ties. She is pretty and attractive and could easily shine should 
she care to enter the lists. Her interests are in opposite 
directions. She had advanced ideas about education and is a 
student of literature. Her pin money, her friends say, goes 
mostly for the newest high-class books and for the solid 
magazines. She is interested in practical charity and much 
prefers to investigate and relieve a genuine case of distress than 

[92 History of the Treman Family. 

to spend an afternoon with a dressmaker talking about the fit 
of a gown. From this it must not be imagined that Miss 
Aldrich does not dress well, for she does. Her father is several 
times a millionaire and lavishes his money on his family. But 
she cares for dress only as a young woman of her station who 
has no infatuation for society should care for it. It is not a 
passion with her and does not distract her mind from the larger 
problems of life, of which she is an earnest student. Miss 
Aldrich's fad is a firm belief in the higher education of both 
sexes. She is thoroughly in harmony with the educational 
ideas of the Rockefellers. She is devoted, also, to church work. 
These features of Miss Aldrich's character, in addition to her 
great personal charm, must appeal to both her future husband 
and to John D. Rockefeller, his father, whose financial support 
of the Baptist Church is only equalled by the great gifts he 
makes to the Chicago University, of which he is virtually the 
founder. Senator Aldrich, her father, is often spoken of as 
the "business man" of the Senate. He rarely makes a speech, 
but he is at the head of the immensely important Finance 
Committee, through which all tariff and other business legis- 
lation must go. His predominating trait of mind is exactness. 
He is thoroughly business-like. Miss Abby has inherited these 
qualities to a marked degree. In her charitable work she is as 
precise as the most painstaking manager of a business enter- 
prise. She gives generously, but never until she has investi- 
gated the merits of each case brought to her attention. She 
does not believe in indiscriminate charity and will not afford 
the slightest assistance until she knows the facts. She tells to 
her intimates the story of an experience she had in Aiken which 
strengthened her resolution in this regard. A few winters ago, 
before she knew as much of the wiles of mendicants as she does 
now, a negro girl approached her with a tale of woe that was 
heartrending. Her mother was dead, her grandfather almost 
dead from rheumatism and she herself ill and suffering from 
hunger. Miss Aldrich was much moved by the tale of mis- 
fortune and called the girl into her house. She gave her a 
meal and some clothes and a generous sum of money for her 
immediate necessities. She promised also to find her work. 
After the girl left Miss Aldrich began to wonder if she had 
done her full duty in so distressing a case. Should she not 
have sent something to the rheumatic old grandfather? She 
decided afiirmatively and told the cook to put some food in a 
basket. Then she ordered her pony chaise and drove to the 
address given by the girl. There was no house there. She 
searched the neighborhood and finally learned from a police- 
man that the girl was an impostor and the rheumatic grand- 

Sixth Generation. 193 

father a myth. So she gave the meal to an old negro woman 
who lived near by and drove home. Then she formulated this 
rule, which guides her now in all her charitable work : 'Never 
give even five cents to a mendicant until you have investigated 
the story. In benevolent enterprises the greatest benevolence 
is to punish the unworthy and thus protect the deserving cases 
of charity.' Undoubtedly in the great affairs with which Miss 
Aldrich will be connected after she becomes Mrs. John D. 
Rockefeller, Jr., she will follow this rule. Her tastes are so 
entirely in harmonj^ with those of her future husband that the 
benevolences which they will institute will be carried out on 
the lines already indicated by the senior Rockefeller. It is 
understood that Mr. Rockefeller and Miss Aldrich have been 
lovers for some years and that the engagement has existed for 
some time. Nearly a year ago Senator .\ldrich hinted some- 
thing of the kind to his intimates in the Senate. Miss Aldrich 
is not particularh- fond of outdoor sports, although she shares 
Mr. Rockefeller's love for horses. She golfs a little and can 
swim and sail a small boat. She much prefers to read a solid 
work or an educational topic than to dance or attend a dinner 
party. She is tall, graceful and a charming talker. Just now 
she is at Greenwich, R. I., where Senator Aldrich has a summer 
home. Her social ideas may be summed up in the statement 
that although she is but a few miles from Newport and its 
gayeties she never goes there."

him : 

Chica(;o, III., Jan. 15, 1892. 

My Dear Truman : — My grandfather's name was John Truman, 
who had three sons and two daughters: i. Nathan Truman. 2. 
John Truman. 3. Henry Hammond Truman (my father). 4. Sarah 
Truman. 5. Elizabeth Truman. All were born in Providence. My 
father was the youngest, bom in 18 12. I am the oldest of his chil- 
dren : I. Benjamin Cummings, born Oct. 25, 1835. 2. John, born 
in 1S37 ; died in 1843. 3- Caroline, born in 1839. 4- Susan, born 
in 1842 ; dead. 5. Clara, born in 1845 5 dead. 6. John Henry, 
born in 1844, graduated at Brown University, and at the Columbian 
Law College in Washington, made a fortune, married a Louisiana 
lady, had three children, one boy and two girls, all living ; he died in 
1881. 7. Imogen, born in 1858, and the only unmarried one, who 
still lives with her parents. We were all born in Providence. 



P. S. I had a boy born in San Diego in 1870, who died in Los 
Angeles in 1871. Georgie was born in Los Angeles in 1873. My 
wife's great-great-great-grandfather on her father's side was Captain 
Eugene Maillard of Lafayette's staff, and her great-great-grandfather 
was a sergeant in the war of 18 12, and was killed at the battle of 
Tippecanoe. He was a Virginian. I would like to know if any of 
our fathers' fathers were "in it". 

The first twelve lines of the following letter refers to a news- 
paper article written in Los Angeles, Cal.. and printed in a New 
York paper : 

Los Angeles, Nov. 12, 1897. 

Mv Dear Jim : — Yours came safely to hand with enclosure. It 
wasn't so bad after all, and much of it was true, especially regarding 
their soldiers and some of the so-called "Castilians". But there were 
quite a number of very nice people here before those last comers 
during the boom, of which the writer thinks brought the better 
classes. He undoubtedly considers himself one of the cre'me de la 
creme. On the whole he was a little too severe. I really appreciated 
your pedigree search, which seems to be complete. Of course dur-

ing the past thirty-five years a great many persons of our name have 
come from Ireland and England, but none are of much account. Our 
family is certainly one of the oldest American families, and although 
there never has been any criminals or scrubs in it, it has probably 
improved with every generation up to our own. I see that my name 
occupies about thirty lines in Appleton's Biographical Encyclopedia, 
and mention is made of me as an author and soldier in the Brittanica. 
Here are some of the positions I have occupied, which, as you have 
taken so much pains to get the records, I will let you know : 

Benjamin Cummings Truman. Born in Providence, R. I., 
Oct. 25, 1835. Graduated in high school studies at age of 13. 
Went to Shaker School in Canterbury, N. H., until I was 17, then 
taught school No. 9 of Merrimack Co. for one year. 1854 worked at 
printing business in Providence. 1855 went to New York, and set 
type and read proof on N. Y. Times for five years. In Oct., 1859, 
went to Philadelphia as correspondent of N. Y. Clipper. Soon 
became editor of the Sunday Mercury, then managing Ed. Forney's 
Washington Chronicle. On March 6, 1862, was appointed captain 
and provost marshal on staff of Andrew Johnson, who had been 
made Brigadier General of Volunteers and Military Governor of 
Tennessee. Was also war correspondent of New York Times for 
more than rwo years at one hundred dollars a week. Staid with 
Johnson until he was elected vice-president. Returned to him after 
he became president. In August, 1865, was appointed special com- 
missioner to investigate condition of the South. Returned in" March, 
1866. Two days afterward was appointed special agent of the 
Treasury Department and sent to South Carolina and Florida to 
investigate Direct Tax Commissioners. In August, same year, sent 
to Paris on a secret service trip by President Johnson. December of 
same year made special agent of the P. O. department of entire 
department of entire Pacific Coast from Alaska to Mexico, with juris- 
diction of China, Japan and Hawaiian mails at $5000 a year and 
traveling expenses. This position I held three years, and visited all 
the countries above named. Dec. 8, 1869, married Augusta Mallard 
whose paternal grandfather was on the staff of Napoleon, and whose 
maternal grandfather was a soldier of the Revolution. From 1870 
to 1877 owned the Daily Star of Los Angeles. From 1878 to 1879 
was again special agent of P. O. D. From Jan. i, 1879 to Jan., 

198 History of the Treman Family. 

1890, eleven years, I had charge of literary work of Southern Pacific 
R. R. Company at salary of $400 a month, and in that time I made 
thirty-eight trips across the Continent, accompanied by my family. 
Had executive charge of exhibit of South Pacific Co. at N. O. Exposi- 
tion in 1884-5. Represented same Co, in London (American Ex.) 
in 1897 and in Paris in 1889. Had an exhibit in Chicago for 1891 
and 1892 for So. Cal. and Santa Fe R. R., and was assistant chief 
of floriculture of Columbian Exposition. Am author of eight bound 
books and many others. Belong to Bohemian and Press Clubs of 
S. F. and Union and Press Clubs of Los Angeles. Belong to Loyal 
Legion and seven other associations. Of course you would be glad 
to know that we are not afraid of the wolf at the door. In other 
words, we are in good circumstances. Am now managing a fine 
newspaper in Los Angeles, Have one child, a daughter, twenty-four 
years old. I believe that gives you my record up to date. It is 
accurate, so far as I can remember, and I think there is no mistake 
in dates ; if there were, though, that would be no disturbing feature. 
My brother Johnnie was born in Providence in 1846, studied in 
college and in Europe, and graduated from the Columbian Law Col- 
lege, and was attorney for the Illinois and Rand & McNally. He 
made a fortune in Chicago at law in six years. Was the author of 
two law books and died in 1881 of pneumonia, leaving a wife and 
four children. His name was John Henry Truman, my only brother. 
I have three sisters living, all widows, all younger than I.

4000. Ebenezer Mack Treman. (Lafayette Lepine.* Ashbel=, 
Abner/ John,^ Joseph,- Joseph.') 1805. He was born Dec. 13, 
1850., at Ithaca, N. Y. He prepared at Eaglewood Military Insti- 
tute, Perth Amboy, N. J., and the Vermont Episcopal Institute at 
Burlington, Vt., and attended Cornell University, 1868-9. He mar- 
ried (ist) April 22, 1884, Eugenie MacMahan (daughter of Oliver 
MacMahan, of Lyons, la.). She was born in 1861. She died August 
17, 1886. He married (2nd) April 23, 1891, Isabelle Norwood 
(adopted daughter of Miles L. Clinton, instructor in Cornell University, 
of Ithaca, N. Y.). While in college he was a member of the Chi Phi 
Greek-letter fraternity, and as a local alumnus, has given much time 
and financial support to the Cornell chapter, which has one of the 
finest homes among American colleges. While in college he was a 
member of the crew of the Sprague Boat Club and he was also a 
member of the University Baseball Club. He was afterwards a mem- 
ber of the old Ithaca Baseball Club. After leaving college he at once 
entered the hardware store of Treman, King & Co. to prepare himself 
for an active business career in which he has been eminently success- 
ful owing to natural ability of a high order and the training of a father 
who was the equal of any in business ability ever in this part of our 
State. Under his father's guidance also, and by his advice, he 
severed his connection with the store, after a few years' service, and 
entered the office of the Ithaca Gas Light Company and the Ithaca 
Water Works Company, of both of which companies his father was long 
President, and with these companies he has since remained, a period 
of over fifteen years, he having been, however, promoted to Secretary 
and Superintendent, which positions he successfully filled many 
years, and to the Presidency of both companies, upon the death of

his father, in 1900. He was also elected a Director of the Tompkins 
County National Bank to succeed his father, in 1900. He is also a 
Director in the Ithaca Trust Company. Aside from his business 
duties he has found exercise for other talents ; being a musician 
himself, and intensely interested in the subject, he has found ways in 
which to use his knowledge and wealth, to contribute not only to the 
gratification of his own artistic tastes but to contribute, through the 
channels of music, to the value of the work of his church, and to the 
pleasure of his fellow citizens. He is undisputably the leading musi- 
cian and patron of music in Ithaca and that part of the State. He 
was one of the founders of the old Mozart Club, and its successor, 
the Ithaca Choral Club, taking an active part in its productions and 
giving it loyal support. He at an early age took entire charge, as 
choirmaster, of the music of St. John's Protestant Episcopal church 
of Ithaca and the fame of its choir has been treasured as a memory 
by thousands of students of Cornell in every part of the world. It was 
through his efforts that the church has had for several years one of the 
best organs procurable. He was elected a Vestryman in St. John's 
P. E. church to succeed his father in 1900. He several years ago saw 
the need of a new Opera House in Ithaca, and while it did not 
promise, and has not realized, a profit to its promoters, yet prompted 
by a public spirit, worthy of emulation, he and a few other men of 
wealth, mostly in his own family, erected one of the finest play-houses 
in the State, at a cost of over sixty thousand dollars, that the college 
town might have some attractive place of assembly ; of this, the 
Lyceum Company, he has been President since its organization. Not 
content m his many activities thus far in the musical line, he deter- 
mined that Ithaca should have a band — not an ordinary band of the 
brass variety — but a band that would be the pride of its citizens 
wherever it should appear. This desire has been more than realized. 
The Ithaca Band is known favorably all over the country, having 
taken prizes in numerous contests with other famous bands, and 
filled an engagement of one week, August 6-1 1. 190 1, at the Pan- 
American Exposition. Its success is largely due to his judicious 
advice and firm financial support and knowledge of music and musi- 
cians. He has accumulated, with discriminating judgment and at 
large expense, one of the finest general and musical libraries in the 
country, and wrote a manuscript History of Music in four volumes

which has been beautifully embellished. He early took an interest in 
his family history and its achievements and spent much time in the 
collection of data relating to the family, till the pressure of business 
necessitated that he turn it over to another to complete, and the 
result is seen in the present volume, which shows an evidence of 
pubhc spirit and unusual interest in one's family. In "Landmarks 
of Tompkins County, N. Y.," will be found a well written short his- 
tory of the family from his pen, which shows much research and is a 
valuable contribution to both family and local history. He has 
always taken an active interest in Democratic politics but has invaria- 
bly declined political office. He is a member of Knights of Pythias, 
St. Augustine Commandery, Knights Templar, and the Odd Fellows 
fraternities, and Tornado Hook and Ladder Company. 

"Landmarks of Tompkins County" says of him: 

"He became associated with the large interests of his father, 
though not a member of the hardware firm. He is secretary and 
superintendent of both the Water and Gas Companies, positions 
which require executive ability of a high order and fully occupy his 
time. He is also president of the recently (1894) formed Lyceum 
Company, and the erection of the new theatre in Ithaca is the reali- 
zation of plans which he has had under consideration for many years. 
He is a young man of popular social qualities and highly esteemed 
in the business circles of his native city." 

Residence, 1901, Ithaca, N. Y. 

4005. John Sayles Waterman. He was born at Smithfield, 
Providence County, R. I. He graduated at Cornell University, 1877. 
While in college he was a member of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity. 
He was a member of the victorious Cornell 'Varsity crew at Saratoga 
Lake in 1875. He married Jeannie Mead Treman. 1806. He was 
engaged for several years in the manufacture of agricultural imple- 
ments under the firm name of Treman, Waterman & Co. at Ithaca. 

At the time of his death the Ithaca Daily Journal said of him : 

"He was not only a close student while in the University but a 
fine athlete as well, and much of the credit of the Cornell crew's 
famous victories at Saratoga was due to his prowess, he pulling bow 
oar in those memorable contests. Some of his friends are of the

exertion in those races. After finishing his studies, Mr. Waterman 
became interested in business here as a member of the firm of

Bush, was actively interested in all that pertained to the progress of 
Buffalo, financially, politically and socially. His mother, Margaret 
Westervelt, was of Dutch descent and her ancestry can be traced 
back to the early history of New York City. His paternal grand- 
father was a man of strong convictions, a staunch Baptist, who did 
much for his church. His paternal great-grandfather who was a 
soldier in the Revolutionary War, was of German ancestry.) He was

one of the charter members of the Buffalo Club. She is a member 
of the Board of Women Managers of the Pan-American Exposition. 

At the time of her election the Buffalo Times said of her :

agers of the Pan-American Exposition, and on the Committee on 
Entertainments and Ceremonies and the Committee on Education of 
the Women's Board, was formerly Kate C. Treman, and was born in

Buffalo Seminary, member of the Graduates' Association, the Alumnae 
Association of the Buffalo Seminary, of the Twentieth Century Club, 
and of the Buffalo Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.

originally assigned. 

"The resignation of Mrs. Matthews and the appointment of Mrs. 
Bush were acted upon by the Board of Directors at its last meeting. 
Mrs. Bush is a member of the Twentieth Century Club and also of

"Born a Quaker, Professor Beal has never joined any religious 
society, while politically he is a Temperance Republican." 

The Cyclopedia of American Biographies, by John Howard 
Brown, says of him: 

"William James Beal, botanist, was born at Adrian, Mich., March 
II, 1833. He was fitted for college at the Raisin Valley Seminary, 
and entered the University of Michigan in 1855, graduating in 1859. 
He then taught school for about three years, and in 1862 entered 
Harvard Universitv, where he took a post-graduate course under 
Agassiz and Gray. In 1868 he accepted the professorship of Natural 
History in the University of Chicago, and in 1870 he was given the 
chair of Botany and Horticulture in the Michigan Agricultural Col- 
lege, which he held until 1883, when he was transferred to the pro- 
fessorship of Botany and Forestry. He became a member of numerous 
scientific societies, and contributed many original papers to the 
American Naturalist, the American Journal of Science, and to the 

Seventh Generation. 235 

reports of the Michigan Board of Agriculture and the several state 
societies. In 1875 he made a collection of grasses and woods for 
the Centennial exhibition at Philadelphia, which received much atten- 
tion and won two diplomas. He was president of the Michigan 
State Teachers' Association in 1881, and president of the Society for 
the Promotion of Agricultural Science in 1880-81. He published 
"A New Botany" (1881) and "The Grasses of North America," both 
of which are highly esteemed by scientific men. Speaking of the 
latter work, Prof. A. J. Cook says : 'He is without doubt the best 
authority on the Graminecr in the United States and one of the 
highest authorities in the world. His work on this family of plants 
is not only scientific and exhaustive, but is wonderfully accurate, so 
that the practical man can rely on it as a certain guide.' "

"Seth Tremain was born July 21, 1839, ^^ Lindleytown, Steuben 
County, N. Y., and died at his home in Westfield, Sept. 7, 1901. 

"He was of English stock, his ancestors having emigrated to 
America in the early part of the seventeenth century. From them he 
inherited a sturdy frame and those sterling qualities that made him 
respected as a man and a citizen. 

240 History of the Treman Family. 

"In 1846, he, with his father's family, moved to Lawrence ville 
where he resided until the breaking out of the Civil War, when he at 
once enlisted in Captain Phil Holland's company in the Pennsylvania 
Reserves, this being one of the first companies to enlist from Tioga 
County. Later he enUsted in Company F, Captain Harrower's com- 
pany in the 86th N. Y., for three years. When his term of enlistment 
expired he again re-enlisted in the same regiment and served until 
the close of the war in 1865. 

"Those, who are familiar with the history of the brave 86th, can 
form some idea of Mr. Tremain's experience as a soldier, for this 
regiment took part in nearly all the battles of Virginia, from Bull Run 
to Appomatox. Mr. Tremain, himself, was in some twenty battles 
and skirmishes, and was promoted to Second Lieutenant, then to First 
Lieutenant, and finally Brevetted Captain for meritorious service. 

"In the battle of Gettysburg he was wounded, and while in ser- 
vice he contracted inflammatory rheumatism from which he never 
recovered, and as the result of this disease at last was stricken by death. 

"March 3, 1867, he married Amelia King who died in 1888, 
leaving two daughters, Iva, now Mrs. Thos. Lynch, of Cross Fork, 
and Thyrza, now Mrs. B. V. Pritchard, of Corning. A little son had 
preceded the mother to the land of shadows. 

"In 1889, he married for his second wife, Mary F. Beardsley, of 
Wellsboro, who survives him. A daughter, Dons, is the only child 
of this union. Four brothers, G. H, Tremain and Orrin 'tremain of 
this borough, Warren Tremain, of Elmira, Munson Tremain, of Frank- 
linville, N. Y., and two sisters, Mrs. Almira Edgcomb and Mrs. 
Amelia Nealy, of Elmira, live to mourn the sundering of one more 
family tie. 

"Besides Mr. Tremain's services to his country as a soldier, he 
has served the town and borough as constable and collector, and in 
1887 was elected to the responsible office of County Commissioner."

Co., N. Y., 14 June, 1819; d. in New York City, 30 Nov., 1878, 
After passing through college, he studied law, and was called to the 
bar in 1840. He began practice in his native county, and continued 
it in Albany, was elected supervisor of Durham in 1842, and became 
district attorney in 1844. In 1846 he was elected surrogate and county 
judge of Greene County, and in 1858 he became attorney-general 
of the State of New York. He was sent to the Assembly in 1866-8, 
and in 1872 was elected congressman as a Republican over Samuel 
S, Cox, serving from i Dec, 1873, to 3 March, 1875." 

He died Nov. 30, 1878, in New York City. (See Lyman Gene- 
alogy.) Residence, Albany, N. Y.

5441. Col. Frederick Lyman. Born June -13, 1843, at Albany, N. Y. He 
attended Hobart College, 1860-1. Member of Theta Delta Chi 
college fraternity. First Lieutenant 7th New York Heavy 
Artillery, Volunteers. Promoted Adjutant Dec. 11, 1863, to 
Capt. and A. A. G. Lieutenant Colonel 10th N. Y. Cavalry 
and Assistant Adjutant General U. S. Vols., New York. Died, 
Feb. 6 (o. 8), 1865, at Hatcher's Run, Va. The History of the 
Lyman Family says of him : "He went from Hobart College 
into the army, and rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel of 
the loth N. Y. Cavalry. Having passed through twenty -five 
battles and skirmishes, and achieved a brilliant record, he was 
killed by a rebel sharpshooter while leading his regiment at 
Hatcher's Run, Virginia, in Feb., 1S65. The brief and brilliant 
career of this youthful warrior, which for heroic daring in 
action, coolness, consummate skill and generalship has seldom 
been surpassed, deserves a further record than time and space 
will now allow. Parental affection has fondly and eloquently 
said : To the pen of history belongs the noble task of record- 
ing the military operations in which he had the honor to par- 
ticipate during the ever memorable campaign of 1864. And yet 
when we consider the bloody and obstinate nature of the battles 
that were fought, the glorious and unconquerable resolution 
which was displayed in conducting the movements of the Union 
armies, the immense loss of human life, the masterly combina- 
tions of those armies, the vast extent of country which consti- 
tuted the field of their display, the number of those brilliant 
raids performed by the cavalry alone, through the heart of an 
enemy's country, each one constituting an interesting history 
of itself, the toil, the sacrifices, the fatigue, sufferings and perils 
to which the heroic soldiers in those armies were continually 
subjected, and to which, with unflinching fortitude and cheer- 
fulness they submitted, when we consider, too, the innumerable 
deeds of personal bravery, performed both by officers and men, 
the holy patriotic purposes by which the great body of those 
armies was prompted, the willingness thej' manifested 
to sacrifice their lives for the preservation of the honor, the 
integrity, and the unity of their country, and, finally, the 
glorious and successful results of all these operations, we may 
well doubt whether history will ever contain more than an out- 
line skeleton of them all. He participated in no less than 
twenty-five battles and skirmishes in ten months, rose high in 
rank, and achieved at the age of twenty-one years a reputation 
for military qualifications and talents which were the admira- 
tion of all and might well be the envy of renowned veterans. 

248 History of the Treman Family. 

The scene of his splendid achievements was the famous battles 
of the Wilderness and in connection with them the ever memor- 
able raids of Gen. Sheridan, in which he acted a conspicuous 
and brilliant part until struck down by the deadly aim of a rebel 
sharpshooter. Col. Tremain went to the field in the fall of 
1862, as Adjutant of the Seventh Volunteer Artillery. Not 
relishing the monotony and inactivity of garrison life, to which 
duty the regiment was assigned, he sought and obtained a 
transfer, and was detailed to staff service in the field, with Gen. 
Gregg, in the cavalry corps of Gen. Sheridan. And there he 
found abundant opportunity for the display of his high sol- 
dierly qualities. He was foremost in every battle in which that 
corps engaged, and which has rendered it and its heroic leaders 
famous in the annals of the war. He was in that ever memora- 
ble ride from Rapidan to the James, during which a score of 
battles were fought, millions of the enemy's property destroyed, 
the outer fortifications of Richmond entered, and prodigies of 
valor displayed by every member of the heroic band. On the 
James he joined in most of the cavalry reconnoissances and 
raids which have passed into history as among the most dra- 
matic of the war, and fell while engaged in driving back the 
rebel force which attempted to check the resistless progress of 
our troops. Col. Tremain was a young man to be admired and 
loved. He combined, with a noble presence, winning manners 
and attractive social qualities. As a soldier he was prompt and 
fearless. He was a brave rider, and coveted nothing so much 
as perilous adventure. He early attracted the attention of his 
superior officers by his manly bearing and gallant deeds and 
earned his promotions by his heroic achievements. Educated 
and chivalrous, he speedily won the confidence of his superiors, 
and promotion soon followed the development of the soldierly 
accomplishments which distinguished him in the many battles 
in which he participated. No better evidence of his merits 
as a soldier need be cited than the fact that he earned the rank 
of Lieutenant Colonel at the earh- age of twenty-one. The 
history of this war, participated in by so many of the youth of 
the country, and oflFering unprecedented opportunities for pro- 
motion, affords but few instances of one so young attaining this 
distinction." Appleton's Cyclopedia of American Biography 
says of him : "Frederick Tremain, soldier, b. in Durham, Green 
Co., N. Y., in June, 1843 ; d. near Petersburg, Va., 6 Feb., 
1865, entered Hobart in i85o but abandoned his studies in 1862, 
and entered the National army. He was appointed adjutant of 
the 7th New York Heav}- Artillery, served in the defences of 
Washington, and was afterwards made Adjutant-General with

the rank of Captain, on the staff, in Kilpatrick's division of the 
Army of the Potomac. In December, 1864, he was commis- 
sioned Lieutenant Colonel of the loth New York Cavalry. He 
commanded this regiment at the battle of Hatcher's Run, where 
he received the wound of which he died."

250 History of the Treman Family. 

"The angel, whose summons all must heed, visited one of our 
oldest and most respected citizens, Israel P. Tremain, on Friday, 
Sept. I St, at half-past four in the afternoon, and called him to his 
rest. So gentle and quiet was the summons that, surrounded by the 
comforts and love of his home, seated in his favorite chair, the 
deceased seemed but to slumber peaceful and calmly, to shortly 
awaken ; but the sleep was eternal. 

"Mr. Tremain's health had been poor for the past two years. 
He had known his days on earth were limited and had often spoken 
of it, and had truly 

" 'Sustained and soothed 
By an unfaltering trust, approached his grave.' 

"He suffered with an organic disease of the heart, which trouble 
for the past few months, necessitated his being very quiet, and avoid- 
ing all excitement. 

"On the day of his death, he was about the house as usual and 
did some writing, after which he remarked that he was tired and 
wished to rest. He sat in his easy rocking chair and as a child drops 
off to slumber, passed away ; spared even the slightest touch of pain. 

"Deceased was born May 17th, 18 15, in Oak Hill, Durham 
Township, Greene Co., N. Y. From his boyhood to his majority he 
worked in his father's tannery and attended school. His education 
was begun in the district school at his home and completed at the 
Durham Academy. 

"The scarcity of hemlock bark at his place of business, necessi- 
tated a change, therefore in 1836, he came to Monticello and went to 
Tannersville, south of Bridgeville, where his brother Edwin Tremain, 
Gideon Howard and himself, purchased the large tannery of Bush- 
nell & VanHorne. 

"In August, 1839, he bought out his brother's interest in the 
tannery and was thereby a two-thirds owner in the concern which 
operated under the name of Tremain & VanHorne. This firm con- 
tinued business until 1866, when they closed up, as the hemlock bark 
was nearly exhausted. They had used on an average 3,000 cords of 
bark per annum for the thirty years they had been in business, or 
90,000 cords in all. Mr. Tremain resided at Tannersville from 1836 
until 1852, when he removed to Monticello where he lived until the 
time of his death. 

Seventh Generation. 251 

"The Union Bank of Sullivan County, was established in the 
fall and winter of 185 1 and 1852, and in 1863 it was reorganized as 
the National Union Bank. Mr. T. was a director in the bank from 
1853 to 1884. Mr. Bennett retired from active duties in 1863, and 
left the bank in charge of Mr. Tremain, who from that time until 
1884, when he resigned, was at times either President or Cashier of 
the institution. 

"Since 1884, Mr. T. has lived a quiet and uneventful life, attend- 
ing to his own private affairs, taking much interest in his garden and 
home. On several occasions he was asked to accept the candidacy 
for legislative offices, but declined. He was elected Supervisor over 
Captain Hamilton in 1854, and was a trustee of the village of Monti- 
cello in 1 89 1. 

"Mr. Tremain was married to Miss Harriet Allen, daughter of 
Samuel Seabury Allen, a merchant, and Harriet Flower, and aunt of 
Gov. Roswell P. Flower, at the bride's home in Oak Hill, January ist, 
1840, in the Episcopal Church at that place, by Rev. E. K. Fowler, of 
St. John's Church, of Monticello. Rev. Mr. Fowler was taken by 
Mr. Tremain from this village to Oak Hill, in a sleigh, which brought 
the bride and groom of fifty-three years ago, back to Monticello, 
where the honeymoon was spent. 

"A warm friendship existed between the minister and Mr. Tre- 
main, which gives an example of the worth of the first rector of St. 
John's Church. Mr. Tremain was en route to Bridgeville and was 
very sick, Mr. Fowler noticed him, and getting in the stage accompan- 
ied him to his home, and lovingly nursed the sick man through a danger- 
ous illness, only coming to Monticello on Sundays to preach while the 
sickness lasted ; and from that time no two men loved each other better. 

"Mr. and Mrs. Tremain were both confirmed in St. John's 
Church in 1840. Mr. T. was a vestryman of the Church from 1840 
to 1863, and a warden from the latter date until 1883, when he 
resigned, as the new stone church was completed, ready for occupancy 
and fully paid for."

The following interesting letters on family history were written 
by him : 

"Humboldt. Iowa, Feb. 24, 1893. 

"Dear Sir — Yours of twenty-first received. I regret to say I 
am unable to tell you much about the Tremains. My father said but 
little about his parents or grandparents, largely, I think, because he 
was left to provide for himself at about ten years of age. We came 
West in 1845 and while I had then seen but an uncle and cousin, 
and them but once, I never again saw a relative of my father's. My 
father, Joseph C. Tremain (the middle name was Collins), was born 
in Massachusetts about 1788; losing his first wife, he married in 
Chautauqua County, N. Y., Harriet Turner — my mother — her father 
was one of the first settlers at Fredonia. One son, Ralph J. Tre- 
main, and two daughters, by my father's first wife, still live. I am 
the only living member of the family of the second marriage. My 
father died in Iowa in 1880, my mother in 1861. 

"My father early spelled the name Treman, leaving out the i. 
In 1845, father's brother, Reuben Tremain, then living at Rodman, 
Jefferson County, N. Y., with his bachelor son, Geo. C, and his son 
Gains and his wife visited us just prior to our starting West. I 
clearly recall incidents of that meeting. My uncle Reuben, it seemed 
to me, was hot a handsome man, but as I heard him talk and discov- 
ered the nobility of his mind, I came to think him a noble looking 
man. I recall a discussion of my uncle and father as to the correct 
way of spelling the name. Uncle for Tremain, father for Treman. 
Uncle prevailed and ever afterwards father spelled it Tremain. Uncle 

256 History of the Treman Family. 

Reuben was an ardent Presbyterian, father an ardent Universalist ; 
both were debaters and men of more than ordinary abiUty and liking 
to argue, 

"My cousin, George C, then a man of about thirty-eight to forty, 
was a large, fine looking bachelor. A five dollar gold piece he tossed 
me, a boy of twelve, saying, 'it's because you (meaning me) are called 
George,' has never been forgotten. I was proud to bear the name of 
so fine a looking man. I recall, as we went West by team, our visit 
in Ohio with one, Henry Truman, my father's half-brother, — he, it 
seems, had without any authority quietly adopted the name Truman — 
it seemed to me he had hit on the best name of the three — Truman, 
Treman, Tremain. Since then and up to 1880 I knew a son of his 
who spelled his name Truman, so it would seem my father's attempt 
to get this half-brother to adopt the Tremain was fruitless. 

"My father was about 5 feet 10, rather stout built, a great reader, 
an active participant in every current event. First a Democrat and 
finally a Republican ; quite a lawyer, or as we would now say, a good 
backwoods lawyer ; an ardent temperance man and a fair speaker. 
Money getting was to him the last thing to consider. G. M, Tre- 
main, of Fredonia, N. Y., whom I have visited, has much of the 
same build and I should think he would be able to give you much 
information. However, I think he writes his name Tremaine. There 
lived until recently a family of Tremains in Hamilton Co., Iowa. Ira 
Tremain, the father, was a tall, spare man. He served in the Iowa 
Legislature and was, I am told, an excellent man. That family are 
now living on the Pacific Coast. 

"I was born in Chautauqua County, N. Y., June, 1833. I am 6 
foot I, and weigh 210. I have two sons, man grown, both living 
here. I am very sorry and have for years felt the regret that I did 
not know more about the family, the name and nativity of our ances- 
tors, but I have treasured up all I ever learned, and my regret must 
be not that I forgot, but that I did not learn. 

"W. H. J. Tremain, of Nora Springs, Iowa, came into my office 
this morning in a hurry. I know nothing of his family history, but 
he thinks we must be akin and certainly his physique bears that con- 
struction. I am very much interested in your letter and hope to hear 
farther from you, and here tender you my services in anything you 
think I can do. Yours truly, 

"G. L. Tremain." 

Seventh Generation. 257 

"Humboldt, Iowa, April 3, 1893. 

"Dear Si-r — On my return home find yours of 15th ult. and 
give it my best attention. I do not know anything of my father's 
half-brothers or their famihes. One, Silas Truman, did a few years 
ago live at Brush Creek, Iowa. He was a son of my father's half- 
brother, one that called himself Truman. As I recall it, Reuben was 
my father's own brother. Henry was a half-brother, and as I see 
them, Reuben and my father had a strong resemblance while Henry

I conclude you have a taste in that especial direction, and work more 
to gratify that taste with little other reward.

"The announcement yesterday afternoon of the death of Cleve- 
land Truman, was as startling as it was heart-breaking and crushing 
to the friends of the young man and sorely bereaved family. For the 
past two weeks the deceased has been ill with fever, but at no time 
was his condition considered dangerous or critical, until yesterday 
morning, when the fever took a sudden change, and he sank rapidly, 
passing away about four o'clock, surrounded by the beloved ones 
who had done all that was possible in human skill to save him. The 
deceased, who was the son of Hon. J. C. Truman, of this city, was 
one of the most honorable, manly and popular young gentlemen of 
the city, and was beloved and respected by the wide circle of admir- 
ing friends and acquaintances. He filled the responsible and trusted 
position of money-order clerk under Postmaster Hull, and was one of 
his most trusted associates. He was twenty-two years of age, and 
leaves a wife and little daughter, besides his parents, to mourn his 
untimely demise."

ory: "Two of Owego's best known society men lost their lives last 
evening. Frank T. Stanbrough and Alva S. Odell were bathing 
in the Susquehanna river with two girls, one of whom they were 
trying to teach to swim. Getting into deep water Odell lost 
control of the young woman and called to Stanbrough to come 
to his assistance. In the struggle all three went down, but the 
girl was rescued by Superintendent Ditmar, of the Owego Gas 
Company, who was out in a rowboat. She was unconscious 
but soon revived. When Stanbrough and Odell were finally 
pulled out of the water there was little evidence of life. Haifa 
dozen physicians worked over them on the river bank for an 
hour, but with no success. The men were among the best 
known society people in town. Stanbrough is the 3-ounger son 
of Dr. J. B. Stanbrough. He was about thirty-five years old 
and w'as one of the heirs of the large Truman estate. Both of 
the 3'oung men were very popular and held in high esteem in 
this village. When the news of the terrible calamity spread 
over the village the river bank was crowded with the friends of 
the dead men, who hoped the doctors would be successful in 
restoring them to consciousness and who deeply sympathize 
with the members of the bereaved families. Mr. Stanbrough 
was bookkeeper at his father's stove and plumbing store in 
Front street. He was a member of Defiance Hook and Ladder 
Company, No. 5, and also a member of Sasana Loft Tribe, 
I. O. R. M."

The Opinion, for one year. 

" Men of New York " says of him : 

"William H. Hotchkiss, though still a young man, even if the 
term be narrowly interpreted, has already made a name for himself, 
and accomplished much good in a field of usefulness cultivated too 
little by men of his standing and capacity. He is a type of the young 
professional men, of liberal education and well-developed talent, who 
interest themselves in public affairs for the public good. He was 
prepared for college at Glidden's Classical School in Jamestown, 
N. Y., going from there to Hamilton College, where he graduated at 
the age of twenty-two with the degree of A.B. He secured the much 
coveted Phi Beta Kappa Key, besides honors in literature, oratory, 
debating. Greek, Latin and mathematics, and delivered the Head 
prize oration and Latin salutatory. Three years after his graduation, 
his college conferred on him the degree of A.M. 

"Law was the profession that Mr. Hotchkiss had chosen for 
himself, and with a view to obtaining a practical knowledge of legal 
procedure as early as possible, he accepted, after completing his 
college course, the appointment of clerk of the Surrogate's Court of 

274 History of the Treman Family. 

Cayuga County, at Auburn, N. Y. The surrogate at that time was 
John D. Teller, whose name became familiar throughout the State by 
his candidacy for judge of the Court of Appeals on the Democratic 
ticket in 1895. Mr. Hotchkiss served as clerk two years, 1887-9. 
Meantime, in 1888, he was admitted to the Bar. Judge Teller took 
him into partnership, and he practiced at Auburn, in the firm of 
Teller & Hotchkiss, till i8gi. He then moved to the larger field of 
Buffalo, Avhere he entered into partnership with E. L. Parker, and 
where he has since pursued his profession. The firm of Parker & 
Hotchkiss has risen rapidly in both influence and volume of business, 
and now ranks among the leading commercial and banking law firms 
of Buffalo. Mr. Hotchkiss is a lecturer on the law of personal 
property in the Buffalo Law School. 

"The great problems of municipal government, so long neglected 
in American cities, were just beginning to receive serious public 
attention when Mr. Hotchkiss began the real work of his manhood. 
To the study of these problems he addressed himself with the energy 
of youth, the earnestness of strong convictions, and an honest desire 
to serve right purposes. He has contributed articles frequently to 
the Review of Reviews, Munsey's, Outing and the Buffalo Illustrated 
Express, his range of subject including travel as well as municipal 
problems. In the latter field, however, he has become recognized as 
an authority. He wrote a pamphlet monograph on Urban Self Gov- 
ernment in 1892, and has since delivered numerous lectures on that 
and kindred subjects. His interest in politics has been in the line of 
promoting ideas, rather than in the actual work of machines. He 
took an active part in exposing the ballot frauds in Buffalo in 1892, 
and has served as Secretary of the Committee on law and legislation 
of the Buffalo Citizens' Association for three years. He is also an 
active member of the Buffalo Republican League, having served two 
years on the executive committee, and one year as editor of its organ. 
The Opinion. He is a member of the Chi Psi college fraternity, and 
served as editor-in-chief of its magazine, Purple and Gold, from 1886 
to 1890. He belongs, also, to the Sons of the American Revolution, 
the Buffalo Club, the Liberal Club, the Independent Club, and the 
New York State Bar Association. Especially worthy of mention is 
his work in connection with the drafting of the reform charter of

" Landmarks of Tompkins County " says of him : 

"As a boy his ambition was to secure a good education, and 
after exhausting the resources of the district schools he became a 
student of the Ithaca High School. The year of his majority he 
taught school in the town of Ulysses, and in 1883 he entered the 
State Normal School at Cortland, after which he became the principal 
of the Jacksonville school, where he remained for five successive 
terms. It was his intention to follow teaching as a profession, but 
the study of law was too strong an attraction for him to resist, and in 
1887 he came to Ithaca, and the following three years we find him in 
the law office of M. N. Tompkins, Esq. He then spent a year in the 
office of Jared T. Newman, Esq., and then became law clerk in the

"Henry Edwin Tremain, soldier, b. in New York City, 14 Nov., 
1840. He was graduated at the College of the City of New York in 
i860 and then entered Columbia Law School. On 17 April, 1861, 
he enlisted in the 7th New York Regiment as a private, and served 
through its two months' campaign about Washington, after which, on 
13 July, he entered the National volunteer service as ist Lieutenant 
of the 2nd New York fire zouaves. During the peninsular campaign 
he was on Gen. Daniel E. Sickles' staff, and w-as in the battles of 
Williamsburg, Fair Oaks and Malvern Hill. He was then transferred 
to Gen. John Pope's army, and engaged at Bristow Station and the 
second battle of Bull Run, where he was captured while endeavoring 
to check a temporary panic and the rapid advance of the enemy. 
After several months' confinement in Libby prison he was exchanged, 
resumed duty on Gen. Sickles' staff as assistant inspector-general 
and was present at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, where he 
served as an aide to Gen. Joseph Hooker. Meanwhile, on 25 April, 
1863, he had been commissioned major, and was chief staff officer to 
Gen. Sickles at the battle of Gettysburg. He was on Gen. Daniel 
Butterfield's staff at Chattanooga, and took part in the battles of 
Dalton and Resaca. In 1864 he was ordered to the Army of the 
Potomac and served successively on the staffs of Gen. David M. 
Gregg and Gen. George Crook, participating in the cavalry battles 
under these officers, until the surrender of the Army of Northern 
Virginia. He was brevetted brigadier-general of volunteers on 30 
Nov.. 1865, and continued on duty in the Carolinas until his discharge 
on 29 April, 1866. Gen. Tremain then resumed his law studies and 
was graduated in 1867, after which he entered into practice, forming

in 1868 the firm of Tremain iS: Tyler. From 1870 till 1885 he was 
usually retained either by or against the government in its legal con- 
troversies in New York, and he was connected with the Marie-Garri- 
son litigation involving the title to the Missouri Pacific railroad. He 
has been active as a Republican in political canvasses, and for five 
terms, beginning in 187 1, he has been president of the associate 
alumni of the College of the City of New York. On 19 April, 1887, 
he was elected colonel of the veterans of the 7th Regiment, the oldest 
organization of its kind in this country. His campaign notes of 
'Last Hours of Sheridan's Cavalry,' were edited by John Watts de 
Peyster (1885)."

great ability. He early took an active interest in Republican politics, 
was a very effective stump speaker and was the Republican candidate 
for Attorney General of the State of New York in 1877. He was the 
orator at many historical celebrations. 

282 History of the Treman Family. 

At the time of his death an Albany newspaper said : 

"Perhaps there has never been more general regret expressed 
and felt in this city, than over the early death of Grenville Tremain. 
Handsome in person, gifted in intellect, possessed of high powers of 
eloquence, he was the beau ideal of the young advocate, and exhibited 
powers that would have placed him yet higher than in the high 
rank of the profession that he illustrated and adorned. At such a 
time as this, it is not so much the genius of the man or his ability, 
the strength or grasp or shrewdness of his intellect, that recurs to 
the minds of his friends — these things but increase the already in- 
tense sense of loss by magnifying its greatness — but those attributes 
of the deceased that, while they add a new pang, sweeten the bitter- 
ness of the calamity, are his perfect manliness, his truthfulness, his 
high, clear sense of honor, his love of the true and right. No one 
can recall in all the activity of his life a cruel or an unkind word, a 
slur or innuendo, or an insinuation that would tend to throw even a 
shadow upon a rival reputation or wound the tenderest sensibilities. 
He had all the strength of the strongest man with the sweetest 
sensibilities of the most deUcate woman. There was about him a 
freshness and naturalness from which the roughest contact never 
took the bloom. In all his legal and forensic contests he was never 
accused of taking an undue advantage or of delivering an unfair 
blow. He was the Bayard of the profession, without fear and with- 
out reproach. He was a patriot not only from cool judgment, but 
with the warm enthusiasm that loved his country even as his mother, 
and as his elder brother gave his life for fatherland so Grenville 
would have been ready to have sacrificed his had his country called ; 
to him patriotism was a belief, and a sentiment that is stronger some- 
times than a belief; all this crystallized into the golden sentences 
dropped by his silver tongue in the matchless oration pronounced 
by him at the laying of the corner stone of the Williams monument, 
when the great concourse gathered there declared that never did 
Webster give birth to more fitting discourse — for the audience were 
moved by the manly beauty and entranced by the noble eloquence of 
the orator. This effort was perhaps the most complete, scholarly, 
and rhetorical of the many speeches of his busy life. 

"To the advantages that Mr. Tremain possessed in person and 
voice and intellect, he added an untiring industry that was undoubt- 

Eighth Generation. 283 

edly the cause of his death. Possessed of so fine a physique, he 
never seemed to think that the keen blade could wear out the strong- 
est scabbard ; he gave himself no rest ; night and day he labored at his 
professional duties ; and when in his last hours his mind wandered it 
wandered into those professional paths where had been won his early 
garlands and his youthful fame. Nominated by a great party for 
the high office of attorney-general ; nominated without hint or asking 
from himself, his nomination was received by his own party with 
glad acclaim ; and hundreds of the opposite party, those who knew 
him, marked their appreciation of his honesty, his ability, and his 
fitness for the place, by giving him the v.otes that carried him ahead 
of his fellows on the same ticket. He leaves to his familv. to his 
widow and his children, the proud, the blessed memory and inheri- 
tance of a name kept unstained and unsullied through the fierce 
turmoil of professional and political contests, and a faith as clear 
and simple and as honest as that of a little child, — one of those who 
shall always see the face of the Father, for of such is the kingdom of 

Another Albany paper said : 

"It is with sorrow unfeigned and deep, that we announce to our 
readers this morning the death of Mr. Grenville Tremain, which 
event occurred at his residence in this city yesterday afternoon about 
two o'clock, after a brief illness. He was the son of Hon. Lyman 
and Mrs, Helen Tremain, and he inherited many of the talents of 
his most distinguished father. He was born in the little village of 
Durham, Greene county, on the 19th day of April, 1845, and was 
consequently in the thirty-third year of his age. At an early period 
of his life, his father removed from Durham to this city, and entered 
into partnership with his old friend, the late Judge Peckham. Gren- 
ville was the second son, his brother the late Lieut.-Col. Frederick 
Tremain, who was killed in the last year of the war, being his senior 
by two or three years. Young Grenville was educated at the school 
of Dr. Reed, in Geneva in this State, and from that institution en- 
tered Union College, where he graduated with high honors. He 
then entered as a student the law oftice of Peckham & Tremain, and 
also attended the Albany Law school and graduated from that insti- 
tution ; and then further pursued his studies in the oftice, until in 

284 History of the Treman Family. 

1867 he became a partner in the firm of Peckham & Tremain, and 
from that day until the day of his death he was an active and useful 
member of that firm. Mr. Tremain early displayed at the bar the 
qualities of an able, learned, eloquent and accomplished lawyer. He 
entered at once into the litigations with which his firm was connect- 
ed, and scarcely a case was tried by either member of the firm at 
Albany, that was not prepared by him, and that did not receive the 
benefit of his indefatigable industry and painstaking research. He 
very early received the confidence of his clients, and he was soon 
engaged as attorney and counsel in many important litigations. He 
had the entire respect and confidence of the bench, and no judge 
ever listened to Mr. Tremain's statement of the facts of a case with- 
out an entire trust in the substantial accuracy thereof. 

"When Mr. Judson was elected Mayor, no other name than that 
of Mr. Tremain was thought of for the important and laborious posi- 
tion of Corporation Counsel, and from that day to the time of his 
death it can be truly said that he knew not a leisure moment. No 
one who has not occupied that office is aware of the engrossing 
nature of its duties when properly performed, and no one of his 
able predecessors ever brought to the discharge of the duties of that 
office a more conscientious determination to discharge them fully 
and properly than did Mr. Tremain. No department of the city 
government hesitated to call upon him for advice and assistance at 
all times, and no city official ever left him without being satisfied 
that he had received from Mr. Tremain the counsel which he de- 
sired, and which resulted from a most painstaking and exhaustive 
examination of the subject submitted to him. When his term of 
office expired, he kept on in the discharge of his professional duties 
without rest, recreation or interruption. 

"The delicate health of his father at this time left the firm to 
grapple with something of a large practice, and Mr. Tremain took 
his full share of the labor and responsibility of active professional 
life. Last year about this time, upon the failure of certain insurance 
companies in New York, and the appointment of a receiver for them, 
he was retained as counsel for such receiver, and from that time on 
he was busy, literally, night and day. The business called him fre- 
quently to New York, and he shrank from no labor that the human 
frame could endure, in order to faithfully and ably discharge the 

Eighth Generation. 285 

duties of the high trust that had been committed to his care. And 
It was melancholy in his last illness, when the hand of death was on 
him, and his mind wandering, to hear from his incoherent speech, 
how firmly his thoughts were fixed upon the discharge of his profes- 
sional labors. 

"Last fall, at the Republican Rochester Convention, without 
the suspicion of a request from him to any man, unsought and 
wholly unsolicited, the high honor and compliment of a nomination, 
by acclamation, for the office of Attorney General of the State, was- 
accorded to this young man, then standing in the very front rank of 
his profession among the younger members of the bar. Though 
suffering the fate of his ticket, it was most gratifying to him and his 
friends to see the way in which he was appreciated by those in whose 
midst he had grown up and passed the whole of his professional life. 
His vote in Albany county was many hundreds greater than that re- 
ceived by the rest of his ticket. 

•'Thus he stood but yesterday, as brilliant and eminent a lawyer 
as any one of his age throughout the length and breadth of the State. 
To-day he is at rest. 

"To those who knew Mr. Tremain socially, his loss will be 
irreparable. There was a manliness in his carriage, a frankness and 
tenderness of character about him, that charmed with the irresistible 
force of a pure, generous and loving heart. He leaves a wife and 
five small children, and he died on the birthday of his only son, who 
is, alas ! too young to feel the loss of as generous, loving and tender 
a father as son ever had. 

"He rests from his labors, and may he rest in peace. His 
stricken family have the profound sympathy of this community in 
this their hour of dire distress, and there is no heart but goes out in 
pity for the sorrow which this terrible calamity brings upon his suf- 
fering father." 

Another Albany paper said : 

"The sad announcement in our last edition of yesterday — com- 
ing as it did without a warning to any save a very few of the nearest 
friends — conveyed a shock to this entire community, and carried a 
deep sense of personal loss to many hearts. There is something 
peculiarly touching in the sudden death of a young man of robust 

286 History of the Treman Family. 

form arid bright promise at the very threshold of a brilhant career. 
When a man of long years and wide fame passes away, a deeper 
impress may be left ; but in the loss there is also a feeling that his 
opportunity has been given and his mission well advanced, perhaps 
altogether accomplished. But when one of rich talents and noble 
character and honorable ambition is cut down in the very dawn of 
youth, just as the full radiance of his promise was throwing its light 
over the pathway of his shining future, it adds the sorrow and the 
pathos of an opportunity denied and a work unfulfilled. It is like 
the blight of winter falling upon the early glory of summer. 

"Grenville Tremain was only in his thirty-third year. The sec- 
ond son of Lyman Tremain, he inherited much of the ability and 
many of the characteristics of his honored father. Trained at 
Geneva, graduating at Union in 1866, and next winning the diploma 
of the Albany Law school, he engaged at once with ardor and en- 
thusiasm in the profession whose severe tests and worthy prizes 
stimulated the highest impulses of his nature. He joined the firm to 
which two of the most eminent members of the Bar had given dis- 
tinction, and both the names of Peckham and Tremain were well 
sustained by those who inherited them. Young Tremain leaped im- 
mediately to the front. He had great aptitude and admirable quali- 
fications for his profession. He loved the science of the law and 
faithfully mastered its principles. His mind was acute, penetrating, 
fertile in resources and ready in action. With these fine intellectual 
attributes he united rare gifts of speech. He was fluent, graceful 
and forcible ; his bearing was dignified and impressive while at the 
same time winning and unassuming ; and the sense of honor, candor 
and truth which stamped all that he said and did, added the weight 
of character to the force and logic. Indeed, he combined in an un- 
usual degree the qualities which adorn and strengthen his profession 
and mark the possessor for sure distinction. 

"With this excellent equipment of natural gifts and acquired 
accomplishments, Mr. Tremain achieved immediate success. He pre- 
pared many important cases and participated prominently in their 
trial. So early and unmistakably had his abilities been shown, that 
when Mayor Judson appointed him Corporation Counsel, the fitness 
of the selection was universally recognized. His administration 
fully vindicated the public confidence. He reduced expenditures, 

Eighth Generation. 287 

took the work on his own shoulders, cut off extra counsel, success- 
fully defended the city in many suits and effected a large public 
saving. Throughout his service he was impelled by a deep and con- 
scientious sense of public duty, and when he retired it was with the 
sincere and cordial respect of all his fellow-citizens. Less than ten 
years at the bar, he had yet acquired such a standing that the Re- 
publican State Convention last fall unanimously presented him for 
the high office of Attorney General — a very marked tribute to so 
young a lawyer. During the progress of that canvass these columns 
contained a statement of some of the more important work which he 
had done in the law, and it was a record which few men of his years 
could equal. Though devoted chiefly to his profession, Mr. Tre- 
main's sympathies and activities were not confined to it. He felt a 
warm interest in the higher range of politics and public questions, 
and was a favorite on the political rostrum. Occasionally he turned 
aside from the exacting demands of law to woo the muse of literature. 
Perhaps his most notable address of this character was that which 
he delivered at Schoharie on the dedication of the monument to one 
of the captors of Major Andre — an address which attracted wide at- 

"Mr. Tremain united the highest personal attractions with in- 
tellectual grace and moral strength. There was manly beauty in his 
form and manly virtue in his character. He was clean, pure, gener- 
ous and ardent. No unworthy instincts debased the moral symmetry 
of his being. His manner was kindly and sincere ; his words were 
gentle and persuasive ; his whole individuality w^on the honor and 
esteem of all who knew him. He had a frankness and nobility of 
character with which only honorable aspirations could be associated. 
And with it all there was so much vitality, so much of virile life and 
strength, that he seemed the very picture of ideal manhood. How 
closely the blow strikes to those who were identified with him and 
counted him among themselves ! We can hardly realize that he is 
gone — gone in the very flush of early life — gone within the few days 
since his hand was grasped. Always thinking of him as he stood 
before us, we may say of him as Mr. Curtis said of another who also 
in the morning of life 'moved for\vard,' and who was not unlike our 
departed in stainless beauty of character and vigorous buoyancy of 
manhood — the brilliant Theodore Winthrop : 'Such was the electric 

288 History of the Treman Family. 

vitality of this friend of ours that those of us who followed him could 
only think of him as approving the funeral pageant, not the object of 
it. We did not think of him as dead. We never shall. In the 
bright spring morning, 'he was alert, alive, immortal.' " 

Another Albany paper said : 

"A sad and most painful duty has devolved upon the editor of 
this journal, — that of recording the death of Grenville Tremain, which 
occurred in this city yesterday afternoon about three o'clock. It was 
only so recently that he was about, apparently in full and vigorous 
health, attending to his professional duties, and there were so few of 
his acquaintances and friends aware of the fact that he was ill at all, 
that the announcement of his death causes an unusual shock, and 
falls with crushing weight upon those who knew, admired and loved 
him. Just at the opening of what promised to be a useful and per- 
haps even a great career, Grenville Tremain has been called away, to 
plead before a higher tribunal than any in which his voice was accus- 
tomed to be heard. In the full vigor of robust manhood, with the 
most brilliant prospects opening up before him, with everything in 
life to live for, the grave beckoned to him, and with his form closes 
in the noble aspirations and ambitions of a manly and generous 
nature, shrouds more than one household in gloom, and leaves a large 
circle of friends to shed tears that are idle because they cannot call 
him back. 

"Mr. Tremain was born in this city in 1845, ^^^^ would have 
been thirty-three years of age if he had lived till next month. He 
was the second son of the Honorable Lyman Tremain, and early 
gave promise of the talents which he developed later in life. He was 
graduated from Union College in 1866, and from the Albany Law 
School a year later, subsequently to which he passed a rigid exam- 
ination before a committee appointed by the Supreme Court, and was 
admitted to practice as an Attorney and Counsellor-at-Law. The old 
and well known law firm of Peckham & Tremain, which had for years 
consisted of Judge Rufus W. Peckham and Lyman Tremain, was 
continued after the retirement of the former from active practice, the 
new firm consisting of Rufus W. Peckham, Jr., and Grenville Tre- 
main, with whom Hon. Lyman Tremain was associated as counsel. 
It speedily became one of the prominent legal firms of the city, and, 

Eighth Generation, 289 

indeed, of this part of the State. Grenville Tremain took naturally 
to the profession of the law. He had been properly trained for it. 
He possessed a logical mind, and that was sustained and reinforced 
by a remarkably acute and accurate memory. He did not forget 
things that he had once learned, and his capacity for learning was 
far above the average. Withal he was a pleasing and graceful 
speaker, a ready and courteous debater, and a thorough gentleman in 
his professional as well as in his private life. There are some law- 
yers who are gentlemen in their domestic and social relations, but not 
in their professional life. Grenville Tremain was not one of these. 

"Possessing these qualities, and besides them a thorough knowl- 
edge of the law, a most hearty and kindly manner, and a warm and 
generous disposition, it is no wonder that Mr. Tremain should have 
made rapid advances in his profession, and in the confidence and 
esteem of his fellow citizens. It is not saying too much to remark 
that, at the time of his death, no man of his years in the city of Albany 
had more brilliant or more apparently certain prospects of a useful 
and distinguished career. 

"Mr. Tremain, while by no means an office-seeker — which, 
indeed, he could not afford to be — nevertheless always took a lively 
interest in politics and political affairs. He was a thorough going 
Republican, and for that party had done much effective service as a 
speaker in several important campaigns. He was a forcible and at 
the same time pleasant and popular speaker, and the announcement 
of his name was always certain to draw a crowd. Under the admin- 
istration of Mayor Judson, Mr. Tremain served with great accepta- 
bility as Corporation Counsel of this city, and last fall he received the 
unanimous nomination of the Republican State Convention for the 
honorable and responsible office of Attorney General of the State. 
Perhaps we could not speak more eloquently of his popularity among 
his friends and neighbors than by recalling the fact that in this county, 
which is supposed to have a legitimate Democratic majority of 2.500, 
Mr. Tremain last year received a majority of 600. 

"In all our municipal affairs, and in everything pertaining to the 
interests of our city, Mr. Tremain was deeply interested. He was an 
active member, an officer in and one year President of the Young 
Men's Association. We believe he was a life member of that body. 

"Mr. Tremain was married several years ago to Miss Martin, of 

290 History of the Treman Family. 

Auburn. His wife, and an interesting family of five young children, 
survive him. 

"The writer of this article had for some years been the associate 
and intimate personal and political friend of the deceased. Having 
known him so well, he feels justified in saying that a truer friend, a 
more generous-hearted gentleman, a more faithful man in the dis- 
charge of trusts committed to his care, never lived. Such a man 
must have made his mark, had his life been spared a few years. 
Indeed, he had already made it ; but in a few years more it would 
have been carved deeper and broader. The death of such a promis- 
ing man is not to be considered a personal affliction alone. It is a 
public loss as well. Our friend has been called away, not, indeed, 
full of years, nor even yet of honors ; but honored, and loved and 
mourned as one whom we knew to be faithful and true." 

Another Albany paper said : 

"The announcement of the death of Grenville Tremain, at three 
o'clock yesterday afternoon, was a painful surprise to the citizens of 
Albany, and will be received with regret by the public generally. No 
young man in this city was more widely known or universally re- 
spected for his brilliant talents and spotless character ; and certainly 
no member of the Bar in this State had a more promising future. 
His professional achievements had already won for him an enviable 
reputation as a lawyer ; while his oratorical powers, his acute reason- 
ing faculties, his familiarity with public questions, his persuasive 
eloquence, and magnetic personal qualities fitted him for political 
leadership, and justified the expectations of his friends that he would 
become eminent in public life. These expectations were suddenly 
crushed by the hand of death ; and the sorrow of his hosts of friends 
is the deeper because the blow was so unexpected. Most of them 
were unaware that he was ill ; for up to a week ago he was in the 
active discharge of his professional duties, in the apparent enjoyment 
of vigorous health. Indeed it was only within a day or two that his 
disease, typhoid fever, exhibited any alarming symptoms. 

"Mr. Tremain was a graduate of Union College, and subse- 
quently of the Albany Law School. He became a partner in the 
distinguished law firm of Peckham & Tremain in 1865 ; corporation 
counsel under the administration of Mayor Judson, and last fall

received the Republican nomination for attorney-general of the State. 
'•The deceased was a son of Hon. Lyman Tremain, who, we 
regret to learn, is lying seriously ill at his residence in this city. He 
leaves a wife and five children. To the afflicted family such a 
bereavement as this can be assuaged only by the consolations of 
religion, and the reflection that he has been called to higher rewards 
than this life affords ; but it may be some gratification to know that 
the symf)athy of the whole community is extended to them in their 
overwhelming sorrow."

The following interesting letter on family history was written by 
him : 

"Fredonia, N. Y., Feb. 18, 1901. 
"M. E. Poole, Esq.: 

"Dear Sir — Your favor of 22nd ult. was received. I made 
inquiry of Mary Ward, of Naysance, Ont., only surviving child of 
Reuben Tremaine. She says his father's name was Solomon ; that 
he lived in Oneida County, N. Y. His children were Reuben and 
Joseph, sons by his first wife, name unknown to me ; and Henry, 
Benjamin, Squire, Polly and Dolly, children by his second wife, whose 
maiden name was Collins. It is stated that Solomon, the father, 
died at Watson, Lewis County, N. Y. Reuben Tremaine married 
Laura Gridley. Their children were David, George C, Gaius, Asahel, 
sons, and Harriet, who married John Merrill, Mary, who married 
John Ward, Laura, who married Virgil Mathew, first husband, Buell 
Fox, second husband, and Sophia, who married Clark Near. 

"Reuben Tremaine lived for the greater part of his life in Rod- 
man, Jefferson County, N. Y., but passed his last days and died in 
Sandy Creek, N. Y. He was an active compatriot with Revs. Finney, 

Eighth Generation. 295 

Knapp, and more particularly with Rev. Jedediah Burchard in their 
forays upon the 'hosts of Satan,' holding 'protracted meetings' in 
northern New York. Reuben was most generally known by his title 
of Deacon, but was ordained a minister of the Congregational church. 
As a preacher he would hardly be compared with his compatriots, 
but in prayer and singing he was very effective. I can in my mind 
hear him render, 'When I can read my title clear to mansions in the 
skies' even now. But he departed from this life in 1866 and his 
chance of reaching his inheritance in the aforesaid mansions was as 
good as that of any one I ever knew. His son David died many 
years ago in Wisconsin. George C. was never married and he died 
in Naysance, Ont. Gains married Mary Ann Sawyer ; her name 
appears in the book of the Sawyer family. She made the first prayer 
in the 'Crusade,' and was an earnest worker in religious and temper- 
ance affairs. She also has her present residence in one of those 
'mansions'. Gains passed most of his life in the town of Rodman, 
Jefferson Co., N. Y., where he served several terms as supervisor. 
He removed to Fredonia, N. Y., in 1864, and died in 1869. Gaius' 
sons were George R. and Gaius M., daughters, Pamelia S., Mary A., 
Emily J., Harriet N., Helen M., Grace E. and Lucy H. George R. 
and Harriet N. have died. The sons of George R. are Charles and 
Edward, who live in Pennsylvania. Gaius M. (myself) has one son, 
Gaius M., Jr., and one daughter, Anne M., a graduate of Cornell 
University and of the Women's Medical College of New York City, 
and now has a position in 'Craige Colony' at Sonyea, N. Y. She has 
also been connected with the Board of Regents at Albany, N. Y. 
Gaius M., Jr., is the present Supervisor of the town of Pomfret, being 
where Eredonia is located. He has one son, Gaius M., the 3d. 
Asahel, the son of Reuben, had one son, William, who lives at Sandy 
Creek, N. Y. 

"Referring to the foregoing, I would say that I think the recol- 
lection of my aunt, Mary Ward, is dimmed by the years, reaching 
1 about ninety. She makes no mention of a Gaius who was an uncle 
or great-uncle of my father and was a soldier in the Regular Army 
of the U. S. I also think Reuben was born in Connecticut and that 
it is so stated on his tombstone at Sandy Creek, N. Y. There was a 
Solomon Tremaine in Rodman from whom 'Tremaine's Corners' 
took its name. He was a relative of Reuben and had a son, Tomp- 

296 History of the Treman Family. 

kins Tremaine, and Warren Tremaine ; the last I think Uves in 
Cleveland, Ohio. Joseph Tremaine, brother of Reuben, lived many 
years at Laona, N. Y., close by Fredonia, and was for a considerable 
period a justice of the peace and known widely as Squire Treman. 
It is too bad that he should not have known how to properly spell 
his own name. The family are from the County of Cornwall, En- 
gland, where there is a manor held by the family. A book of heraldry 
published in England shows the name ; it was 'Tremayne'. But to 
return to the subject. The sons of Joseph were Ralph and George 
L. and perhaps others. George L. is a banker at Humboldt, Iowa, 
and an inquiry made to him might supply other information of the 
family beside that of his own father. Dr. William S. Tremaine, a 
surgeon noted in this region, has died since I wrote before. He used 
the final 'e' in the last years of his life as his surviving family do now. 
I supplied the information which caused the correction. Now this 
has been written in a crude way and I think if the matter is not 
urgent in the way of time I could dig up some more. A few years 
ago I could have obtained much more information, but the sources 
from which I could have obtained it are no more available. In your 
work you have my best wishes. Get as near to the flood as you can, 
but as I never heard of the name of Noah in the family records, I 
conclude that the mists of the ages have obscured it or else the Tre- 
maine family had a boat of their own. Of traditions which might 
have referred to that occasion, I have only the recollection of a men- 
tion of wet seasons when there was a poor outlook for the corn crop. 
I should be glad to hear from you again, and if I can supply any 
other material for your work will do so.

8000. Joseph Truman, i. ("Early Generations of the Brew- 
ster Family" in New England Hist. Gen., Reg., vol. 53, 1899, gives 
the following information : "William Brewster, father of Elder Will- 
iam Brewster, was appointed by Archbishop Sandys, in Jan. 1575-6, 
receiver of Scrooby and bailiff of the manor house in that place 
belonging to the Archbishop, to have life tenure of both offices. 
Elder William Brewster, his son, matriculated at Peterhouse, Cam- 
bridge, Dec. 3, 1580, but it does not appear that he remained there 
long enough to take his degree. The name of Elder Brewster's wife 
was Mary. Her maiden name has not yet been discovered. She 
d. April 17, 1627, at Plymouth, New England. Jonathan Brewster, 
son of Elder William Brewster, married, April 10, 1624, Lucretia 
Oldham, of Darby. Their daughter Ruth was born Oct. 3, 1631, at 
Jones River. She married, March 14, 165 1, John Picket, of New 
London. She died May i, 1677. He d. Aug. 16, 1667.") 

Caulkins' History of New London, Conn., says : 

"Jonathan Brewster, died in 1661. 

"No probate papers relating to his estate have been found ; but 
bills of sale are recorded, dated in 1658, conveying all his property 
in the town plot, and his house and land at Poquetannuck, with his 
movables, cattle and swine — -'to-wit 4 oxen, 12 cows, 8 yearlings and 
20 swine,' to his son, Benjamin Brewster, and his son-in-law John 
Picket. Feb. 14th, 166 1-2, Mr. Picket relinquishes his interest in 
the assignment to his brother-in-law, stipulating only 'that my mother- 
in-law, Mrs. Brewster, the late wife of my father, Mr. Jonathan 
Brewster, shall have a full and competent means out of his estate 

Appendix I. 307 

during her life, from the said B. B. at her own dispose freely and 
fully to command at her own pleasure.' 

"The same trustees, Brewster and Picket, also conveyed certain 
lands to their sisters, Grace and Hannah, but in the settlement of 
the estate, no allusion is made to other children. 

"Mrs. Lucretia Brewster, the wife of Jonathan, was evidently a 
woman of note and respectability among her compeers. She has 
always the prefix of honor (Mrs. or Mistress) and is usually presented 
to view in some useful capacity — an attendant upon the sick and 
dying as nurse, doctress or midwife — or a witness to wills and other 
important transactions. She was one of the first band of pilgrims 
that arrived at Plymouth in the Mayflower, December, 1620, being 
a member of the family of her father-in-law, elder William Brewster, 
and having one child, William, with her. Her husband came over 
in the Fortune, which arrived Nov. loth, 1621. 

"Jonathan Brewster settled first in Duxbury and was several 
times representative from that place. Subsequently he engaged in 
the coasting trade, and was master and probably owner of a small 
vessel plying from Plymouth along the coast to Virginia. In this 
way he became acquainted with Pequot Harbor, and entered the 
river to trade with the natives. In the spring of 1649 ^^'^ ^^^ him 
overwhelmed with pecuniary disasters. Mr. Williams, of Providence, 
gives this notice of his misfortunes to Mr. Winthrop : 

" 'Sir (though Mr. Brewster write me not a word of it) yet in 
private I am bold to tell you that I hear it hath pleased God greatly 
to aftlict him in the thorns of this life. He was intended for Vir- 
ginia, his creditors in the Bay came to Portsmouth and unhung his 
rudder, carried him to the Bay where he was forced to make over 
house, land, cattle and part with all to his chest. Oh how sweet is a 
dry morsel and an handful, with quietness from earth and heaven.' 

"At the time of this misfortune, Mr. Brewster was purposing a 
change of residence and probably removed to Mr. Winthrop's planta- 
tion as soon as he could arrange his affairs with his creditors. He 
was 'Clarke of the Towne of Pequitt' in Sept., 1649. ^^^^ ^^ ^^^ 
family came with him ; but several children remained behind. He 
had two sons, William and Jonathan, on the military roll in Duxbury, 
in 1643; the latter only sixteen years of age. William was in the 
Narragansett war of 1645, after which his name is not found on the 

3o8 History of the Treman Family. 

old colony records. Jonathan disappears from Duxbury about 1649, 
and it may be assumed that these two sons died without issue. Two 
daughters are traced in the old colony — Lucretia mentioned at the 
early date of 1627, and Mary, who married John Turner, of Scituate. 
"At New London we find one son and four daughters. Benja- 
min married, 1659, Anna Dart, and settled at Brewster's Neck, on 
the farm of his father. Elizabeth married, first, Peter Bradley, 
and second, Christopher Christophers. She was aged forty-two in 
1680. Ruth married John Picket, probably about 1652. Grace 
married, August 4th, 1659, Daniel Wetherell. Hannah married, 
Dec. 25th, 1664, Samuel Starr. She was aged thirty-seven in 1680. 
Ezekiel Turner, a grandson of Mr. Brewster, from Scituate, settled in 
New London, about the year 1675." 

"John Picket, died August i6th, 1667. 

"It is much to be regretted that a full record of the early mar- 
riages, which were undoubtedly by Mr. Winthrop, was not preserved. 
The marriage of John Picket and Ruth Brewster belongs to the 
unrecorded list. Their children were : i. Mary, who married Ben- 
jamin - Shapley. 2. Ruth who married Mr. Moses Noyes, first 
minister of Lyme. 3. William, who died about 1690. 4. John, 
born July 25th, 1656. 5. Adam, born Nov. 15th, 1658. 6. Mercy, 
born January i6th, 1 660-1. Married Samuel Fosdick. 

"Mr. Picket's estate was appraised at ;^i,i4o. This was suffi- 
cient to rank him, at that period, as one of the wealthiest merchants 
of the place. 

"Ruth, relict of John Picket, married, July i8th, 1668, Charles 

"The three sons of Mr. Picket died young, and at sea ; two of 
them, and perhaps all, in the island of Barbadoes. John and William 
were unmarried. 

"Adam Pickett married May i6th, 1680, Hannah, daughter of 
Daniel Wetherell. He died in 1691, leaving two sons: Adam, born 
in 1681 ; John, in 1685. The former died in 1709, without issue, so 
that the family genealogy recommences with a unit. 

"The Picket house-lot, at the southwestern extremity of the 
bank, descended nearly integral to the fourth John Picket, among 
whose children it was divided, and sold by them in small house plots, 
between 1740 and 1750. Brewer Street was opened on the western 

Appendix I. 309 

border of this lot in 1745, and at first called Picket Street. John 
Picket, the fifth of the name, removed from New London, and with 
him, the male branch of the family passed away from the place. 
Descendants may be traced in the line of Peter Latimer, whose wife 
was Hannah Picket, and of Richard Christophers, who married Mary 
Picket, daughters of John Picket the fourth." 

"Benjamin Shapley, died Aug. 3d, 1706. 

"Benjamin, son of Nicholas Shapleigh of Boston, was born, 
according to Farmer's Register, in 1645. We find no difficulty in 
appropriating this birth to Benjamin Shapley, mariner, who about 
1670 became an inhabitant of New London. The facts which have 
been gathered respecting this family are as follows : 

"Benjamin, son of Nicholas Shapley, of Charlestown, married 
Mar}', daughter of John Picket, April loth, 1672. Children: i. 
Ruth, b. Dec. 24th, 1672. Married John Morgan of Groton. 2. 
Benjamin, b. March 20th, 1675. Married Ruth, daughter of Thomas 
Dymond. 3. Mary, b. March 26th, 1677. Married Joseph Tru- 
man. 4. Joseph, b. Aug. 15th, 1681. Died young. 5. Ann, b. 
Aug. 31st, 1685. Married Thomas Avery of Groton. 6. Daniel, 
b. Feb. 14th, 1689-90. Married Abigail Pierson of Killingworth. 7. 
Jane, b. 1696. Married Joshua Appleton. 8. Adam, b. 1698, 
Died young. 

"Mary, relict of Benjamin Shapley, died Jan. 15th, 1734-5. 
The Shapley house-lot was on Main Street, next north of the Christo- 
phers lot, and was originally laid out to Kempo Sybada, a Dutch 
captain. Shapley Street was opened through it in 1746. Captain 
Adam Shapley, who received his death wound at Fort Griswold, in 
1 78 1, was a descendant of Daniel Shapley." 

8020. Joseph Truman. 34. Caulkins' History of New Lon- 
don, Conn., says : 

"Hallam. John and Nicholas Hallam were the sons of Mrs. 
Alice Liveen, by a former marriage, and probably born in Barbadoes 
— John in 1661, and Nicholas in 1664. John married Prudence, 
daughter of Amos Richardson, in 1682, and fixed his residence in 
Stonington, where he died in 1790. His possessions were large ; a 
thousand acres of land were leased to him in perpetuity by John 
Richardson of Newbury in 1692 'for the consideration of five shillings 

3IO History of the Treman Family. 

and an annual rent of one pepper-corn ;' and his inventory gives 
evidence of a style of dress and housekeeping, more expensive and 
showy than was common in those days. It contains silver plate, 
mantle and coat of broadcloth, lined with silk, 'seventeen horse kind,' 
four negro servants, &c. 

"Nicholas Hallam married Sarah, daughter of Alexander Pygan, 
July 8, 1686. Children: i. Alexander, born Oct. 22, 1688. 2, 
Edward, born April 25, 1693. Married Grace Denison. 3. Sarah, 
born March 29, 1695. Married Joseph Merrills. (Mrs. Sarah Hal- 
lam died in the year 1700.) Nicholas Hallam was married Jan. 2, 
1 700-1 to widow Elizabeth Meades whose maiden name was Gulliver, 
in Bromley church, on the backside of Bow without Stepney church, 
in London, Old England. Their daughter Elizabeth was born in the 
parish of St. John Wapping, near Wapping New Stairs, in London 
Feb. 22, 1701-2. Married Samuel Latimer. 5. Mary, born in New 
London, Oct. 11, 1705. Married Nathaniel Hempstead and Joseph 
Truman. 6. John, born Aug. 3, 1708. Married Mary Johnson. 

"Mr. Hallam's gravestone states that he died Sept. i8th, 17 14, 
at the age of forty-nine years, five months and twenty-nine days. His 
wife survived him twenty-one years. 

"At this period, many families in town owned slaves, for domestic 
service ; some but one, others two or three ; very few more than four. 
The inventory of Nicholas Hallam comprises 'a negro man named 
Lonnon,' valued at ;!^3o; his wife disposes of her 'negro woman 
Flora and girl Judith.' Among the family effects are articles that 
were probably brought from England, when Hallam returned with his 
English wife in 1703 — such as a clock and secretary. Mrs. Hallam 
bequeaths to one of her daughters a diamond ring, and a chest made 
of Bermuda cedar ; to another 'the hair-trunk I brought from London, 
and my gold chaine necklace containing seven chaines and a locket.' 

"Alexander Hallam died abroad. The will of his father con- 
tains a bequest to him 'if he be living and return home within twenty 
years.' In 1720 his inventory was presented for probate with the 
label, supposed to be dead. Edward Hallam was town-clerk from 
December, 1720, to his death in 1736."

"Mr. Chas. Tremaine : 

"Dear Sir — I am at work on the genealogy of my family and 
wish to trace the Tremaine branch. My great-grandfather was Peter 
Miller, an Englishman ; he married Phebe Mott who was a cousin of 
the Tremains of Halifax. James Tremain, of Halifax, visited the 
Millers, their cousins in Baltimore, about 18 17, and Hannah Miller 
the daughter of Phebe, visited the Tremains in Halifax. 

"Catherine Miller, daughter of Phebe Mott Miller, married Joseph 
Robinson, of Baltimore, my grandfather. She had cousins in New 
York by the name of Stout whom we think were English. I tell you 
this as it may be a help with regard to the Tremain connection. I 
will be much obliged for any information you can give me on the 
subject. Hoping that, you take as much interest in such things as I 
do, so that then it will not be a trouble to you, I am, 

"Yours truly, 

"Mrs. \Vm. H. Corbusier."

settled in Palmer, Mass. James Breckenridge, son of the above, 

Appendix III. 341 

born in Ireland in 172 1. Was six years old when his father came to 
America. Settled in Bennington, Vermont. Was very prominent in 
New Hampshire grants dispute, taking side with New Hampshire. 
He was a member of the Provincial Congress in 1775, and was sent 
to England by the settlers on a mission to the King for redress of 
grievances. Was chosen on account of his courtly manners and fine 
bearing. Refused to bear arms against the King, in the Revolution, 
though he did not take any active part against the movement. He 
was expelled from the state, with his son-in-law, John McNeil, but 
was allowed to return, and died in Bennington. Mary, daughter of 
the above, married John McNeil, of Charlotte, Vermont. 

McNeil. The McNeils, along with other Scotch clans, were 
sent to the north of Ireland to act as a buffer against the wild Irish. 
After several generations, some of them came to this country ; among 
them, Captain Archibald McNeil, in about 1729. He came in his 
own ship, wdth a chest of gold at the mast. His wife was Lady 
Sarah Johnson, from Antrim, Ireland. They were ship-wrecked — 
some say on the coast of Nova Scotia, others on Massachusetts Bay, 
The former is probably correct. Captain McNeil went to Brantford, 
Connecticut, and from there to Litchfield in about 1740. He served 
in the British Army as captain of a Connecticut company, during the 
French and Indian War (1756 to 1763). He went with the British 
Army to Ticonderoga, and also to Havana when that was besieged 
by the British. Date of death unknown. His son, John McNeil, 
w^as born in 1740 and died in 1813. Married Mary Breckenridge 
and settled in Tinmouth before the Revolution. When Burgoyne 
made his invasion of New York, John McNeil asked for the protec- 
tion of the British Army. For this, he was called a. Tory by a cer- 
tain faction, and his lands confiscated and seized by Ira Allen, brother 
of Ethan Allen. There is no evidence that he was a Tory, other 
than the above. He then moved to Charlotte, Vermont, where he 
was elected as Town Clerk, Representative, was Judge of Probate 
Court, Judge of County Court and was delegate to both Constitu- 
tional Conventions of 1791 and 1793. He is spoken of in the records 
as General McNeil ; but there is no known reason for the use of this 
title. His daughter, Mary, was born August 30, 1780, and married 
Ezra Meech. Note : John McNeil had a son, David B. McNeil, who 
was very prominent in the affairs of northern New York. He held 

342 History of the Treman Family. 

the commission as General, and was at the battle of Plattsburg. He 
was a brother of the above mentioned Mary McNeil, 

Meech. Henry Wallbridge, and brothers, William and Stephen, 
from Dorsetshire, England, fought with the Duke of Monmouth in 
his rebellion against James II., and after the defeat at Edgmore 
(1685), fled to America. They first settled at Dedham, Massachu- 
setts, then fled to Preston, Connecticut, near Norwich. Stephen 
changed his name to Meech, taking his mother's maiden name. 
Daniel Meech, son of Stephen, married Amy Wilcox, a woman of 
extraordinary beauty. Elisha Meech, son of Daniel, emigrated to 
Hinesburgh, Vermont, in 1785. Married Faith Satterly and had 
five sons. Ezra Meech, son of Elisha, was born in Connecticut, in 
1773, and married Mary McNeil in 1800.)

He was born Dec. 24 (o. 10), 1750, in Hebron, Conn. He married, 
April 24 (o. 21), 1774, Mary Talcott (daughter of John and Abigail 
Talcott). She was born Sept. 21, 1757. He was the subject of the 
famous tract "The Faithful Steward". He removed to Middlefield, 
Mass., in 1776. Selectman, 1783-4; 1787-8. Representative, 

Professor William S. Tyler's History of Amherst College says of 
him : 

"Col. David Mack was a truly Christian patriarch who left to his 
7uimerous descendants and to society the fragrant memory of a life 
of ninety-four years consecrated to piety and usefulness — was the 
subject of that well-known and highly instructive tract, entitled 'The 
Faithful Steward'. No one could see him for once and converse 
with him on the most casual subject without feeling that he was a 
genuine descendant and representative of the Pilgrim Fathers of New 
England. And those who knew him most intimately, knew that he 
was just what he seemed, a living impersonation of their characteristic 
virtues. Gen. Mack himself was the worthy son of that worthy sire." 

The following is taken from the tract entitled, "Col. David Mack, 
the Faithful Steward". 

"He was of Puritan descent ; his ancestors were noble ones, for 
the blood of the Pilgrims ran in their veins and the love of the Pil- 
grims' God burned in their hearts. 

358 History of the Mack Family. 

"Col. Mack and his wife had each fifteen brodiers and sisters ; 
and Jabez EUis his maternal uncle, lived till he was one hundred 
years and forty days old, and was connected with his wife in marriage 
seventy-six years. 

"In those days, family government had not changed hands ; 
children were subject to their parents. But not so all ; there were 
some who, like the sons of Eli, made themselves vile and were not 
restrained ; and it was among such, that Col. Mack was situated in 
his youth. But his parents prevented him from running to the same 
excess of riot. 

"They absolutely debarred him from attending the fairs, horse 
races, dances and other amusements in which his neighbors freely 

"And when David — feeling as he did, that this separating him 
from all associates, was unreasonable and unjust — ventured to remon- 
strate with his father, as they were together in the field, the reply of 
the good man was, 'My son, I do this to save you from ruin ; for 
mark me, those young men will assuredly come to a bad end.' This 
prophetic speech was sadly and literally fulfilled ; three of them 
expiated their crimes on the gallows, others were sent to the state 
prison, and all came to a lamentable and disgraceful end. 

"Not so with him who was trained in the way he should go, and 
did not depart from it when he was old. He honored his father and 
mother, and his days were long in the land, which the Lord gave 
him ; and that too, notwithstanding imminent exposure to death. 

"As he removed his family from Hebron to Middlefield, in 
crossing the river at Norwich, the unexpectedly high water swept 
them rapidly down the current, to the point of being carried over the 
dam ; when looking for death, and the spectators giving them up for 
lost, Providence, at the moment of despair, ordered a way for their 
escape safe to land. 

"Afterwards, as he was hunting in the deep snow in pursuit of a 
large deer, the animal suddenly turned on him, pressed its antlers 
against his breast, and set its fore feet on both his snowshoes, holding 
him fast ; and thus crippled, it was with difficulty that he got in hand 
his hunting-knife, and with his utmost remaining strength, drew it 
across the deer's throat, when the animal struck him with the hind 
foot a terrible blow upon one of his temples, which completely stunned 

Fourth Generation. 359 

and almost killed him. As near as he could judge, he lay senseless 
about an hour. On recovering, his first thought was, 'I am dead !' 
but rising up, he found that the deer was dead and lying prostrate at 
his feet. 

"Thus was he delivered out of his distresses, that he might serve 
his generation by the will of God, and that God might fulfill the 
promise of long life to one who honored his parents, not only while 
they lived, but long after they had departed this life. And not only 
did Colonel Mack honor his parents 'he rose up before the hoary 
head, and honored the face of the old man'. While yet a youth, an 
aged man of choleric temper had, from some unknown cause, con- 
tracted towards him a strong dislike. Meeting him one day, Mr. 
Mack saluted him respectfully, but received only the unkind reply, 
'Don't speak to me.' 'I shall sptak to you,' said he, 'for I have 
always been accustomed to respect age, and I always intend to do it.' 
This changed his churlishness towards him ever after into civility ; 
thus exemplifying the truth that, 'a soft answer turneth away wrath'. 
It may be remarked that this respect for his parents and the aged 
was a result of parental fidelity. 

"The son, thus faithfully dealt with, was in his turn faithful in 
all his house. He, too, ruled well having his children in subjection. 
'My father,' says one of them, 'excelled in government. He never 
inflicted punishment without fully setting forth the criminality of the 
offense and its evil consequences, calmly and coolly, without excite- 
ment or passion ; but he did not desist till there was a perfect yield- 
ing, a full confession and promise of amendment ; and would often 
add, 'It is because I love you that I punish.' 

" 'We were,' he continues, 'kept in on the Sabbath, and taught 
the catechism and had other religious instruction, which he faithfully 
imparted. He never allowed his children to be absent in the even- 
ing without his permission, and he required their return by nine 
o'clock. And not only did he command his children but his house- 
hold. He had for several years twenty or more in his family in the 
summer, and in the most hurrying time of business he insisted that 
all under his care should be present at family devotions, and attend 
public worship on the Sabbath. If a hired man persisted in using 
profane language he dismissed him.' 

"Such fidelity in the stewardship God crowned with his blessing. 

360 History of the Mack Family. 

He gave him thirteen children, three sons and ten daughters, all of 
whom lived to be married, and twelve of them became members of 
the church of Christ. They are honored of God and their country, 
and their children in their turn are rising up and calling them blessed. 
His descendants, living and dead were, at the time of his decease, 
about two hundred ; there were eight or ten of the fifth generation 
his grandchildren's grandchildren. These, as well as his other 
relatives, he regarded as a high trust, concerning which God would 
require an account of his stewardship. For their temporal and spir- 
itual welfare, he labored, prayed and counselled. As evidence of this 
and of his general Christian character, a few extracts will here be 
given from letters written in the later period of his life, for he brought 
forth fruit in old age. 

"Writing to a child, December 10, 1824, he says: 'By the grace 
of God, I have been carried through the various stages of manhood, 
and am this day sevent}'-four years old. I have set apart this day 
for prayer, and have been reading the forty-second Psalm. I have 
enjoyed in some measure the light of God's countenance. O, it is 
good to draw nigh to God, for he has styled himself a prayer-hearing 
God ; and never said to the seed of Jacob, seek my face in vain.' 

"'December 12, Lord's Day. I had great desire to enjoy the 
light of God's countenance, for which I attempted to pray ; and I 
think my poor feeble attempts were not in vain. My enjoyment con- 
tinued through the day and evening. Thanks to Almighty God, that 
he can subdue the hardest heart and bring such sinful rebels as I am 
to bow before him. When I look back on my life and see how I have 
lived, more than forty years since I experienced religion, if indeed I 
ever did, I have reason to blush and be ashamed and repent in dust 
and ashes. I feel that I have more reason to be thankful to God, 
than anv of the sinful race. If he should see fit to continue me in 
life, my prayer to him is, that he would make me more faithful in his 
service, and that the remainder of my days may be filled up with duty 
and usefulness to God and man.' 

"In 1832 he writes: 'Alas! my dear children, with shame and 
confusion of face, I am often confessing before the throne of grace, 
that when I would do good, evil is present with me ; that while I 
delight in the law after the inner man, I am so drawn aside by my 
indwelling corruptions, the snares of the world and Satan's tempta- 

Fourth Generation. 361 

tions, that were it not for a strong belief, that I have an advocate 
with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, who is the propriation for 
our sins, and the sins of the whole world, I could have no confidence 
towards God, being condemned by my own heart. In short, I can 
do no other, than allow, that all my best services are defiled with 
sin, and need to be washed in that fountain, which the Lord has 
opened for sin and uncleanness.' 

"In 1835 he wrote to a brother : 'For many years I have thought 
much on the importance of being prepared for death ; but it appears 
to me that during the last year, I have grown more in the knowledge 
of Christ than in any previous year of my life. I can say in my most 
favored moments, I know him, I love him, I am his and he is mine. 
No name awakens such tender and interesting feelings in my mind as 
his ; nor is there any being in the universe, whom I so much delight 
to honor or desire to see. And why should it not be so ? We are 
under greater obligations to him than to all the world besides. We 
have more" to do with him, every day of our lives, than with any other 
being in the universe. No being in heaven so much beloved as he 
is ; none has manifested such love towards us as he has. No wonder 
that our heart and flesh should cry out for him. 

" 'My dear brother, if you and I are what we profess to be, we 
shall be in a short time with him, where he is, to behold his glory, 
which he had with the Father, before the world was. Although my 
health is good, my reason tells me, the time I have to stay here is 
short. I often look over my life, to see if I have done anything on 
which I could place the least dependence, viewing it as righteous in 
the sight of a holy God ; but comparing my life with his holy word, I 
am constrained to say that in all things I have come short of my 
duty. I have nowhere to go but to God through Christ, and plead 
for mercy in his name.' 

"Again he writes Dec. 10, 1835 : 'My dear children, I am this 
day eighty-five years old. I have spent most of the day in calling to 
mind the numerous blessings of which God, in his holy providence, 
has made me the unworthy partaker, and in reading and meditating 
upon the 25th and 29th chapters of Genesis, the 34th chapter of 
Exodus, 32d of Deuteronomy, and the two last chapters of Joshua. 
I enjoy good health, and have attended meeting every Sabbath this 
season. When I call to mind what God has done for me, and what 

362 History of the Mack Family. 

miserable improvement I have made of his numerous mercies, I 
have great reason to be humbled before him.' 

" 'December 31, 1835. In the good providence of God, I am 
brought to the close of another year. There is no closing year in 
eternity. The solemn influence of this season is among the means of 
grace connected with a probationary state. 

" 'My dear children, it becomes you and me, faithfully to exam- 
ine the foundation of our hope, and see to it, that we are not deceived ; 
that when God shall call us hence we may be prepared for the sum- 
mons ; our work done, and well done, for which 'the time is short.' 

" 'January i, 1836. I have been loudly admonished the year 
past by the deaths of many aged friends. I am the oldest man in 
town — there is not one living who was here when I came. In one 
sense I am almost alone ; in another, I am not alone. I enjoy the 
presence and smiles of my Saviour in my room, which is the best of 
company. I have great enjoyment on the Sabbath, in going to the 
house of God, in hearing the Gospel, and in visiting my' Christian 
friends on week days. If I am not deceived my evidences for heaven 
are brighter, and my faith stronger as I advance in life. 

" 'Yet, many times I see myself to be so great a sinner, it seems 
impossible I should be of that happy number whose sins are forgiven. 
And yet, I do not despair of mercy on account of the greatness of my 
sins, for I firmly believe that the atonement which Christ has made 
is sufficient to atone for my sins and for the sins of the whole world. 
He 'came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance,' such 
as feel themselves to be sinners, old sinners.' 

"In 1836 he thus addressed his grandchildren : 'My dear and 
much esteemed grandchildren : — God, in his holy providence, has 
lengthened out my unprofitable life much longer than I expected. He 
has bestowed upon me many blessings. My health is as good as it 
ever was. I can read with spectacles and some without. My hear- 
ing is perfect. Although my health is good, my reason tells me I 
have but a short time to stay in this world of trouble and sin. May 
I so live, that when God calls me home, to be here no more, I may 
be found watching, and enabled through grace in Christ Jesus, to 
give up joyfully my spirit to him who gave it. 

" 'It is uncertain whether you will ever hear from your aged 
grandfather again in this way ; will you therefore, my dear grand- 

Fourth Generation. 363 

children, allow me to give you a few words of advice ? I have great 
concern for your temporal and spiritual good ; and knowing, as I do 
from experience, how liable young people are to go astray, from the 
commands of God, into forbidden paths, I would warn you of your 
danger. Be careful what company you associate with, for such will 
be your character. 

" 'Never marry for riches or beauty, for beauty is vain and riches 
take to themselves wings and fly away. Exercise judgment. Be well 
acquainted with the temper and disposition of your intended bosom 
friend before you decide. Lay hand suddenly on no one. When 
you commence housekeeping, be careful to erect the family altar. 

" 'Let me enjoin it upon you, often to read your Bible, with 
prayer to God, for a right understanding of what you read. Be 
always ready to do your part in supporting the Gospel. The man 
who is not willing to support the Gospel, cannot, with propriety, be 
called a good member of society. 

" 'Despise not the poor, because he is poor. The great object 
of our existence is to glorify God, in whom we live and have our 
being, and who bestows all our comforts. Take heed that you faith- 
fully perform all the duties and business of life, from a regard to his 
commands and with reference to his glory. We are placed in this 
world to labor for him, (not to become rich and great), and to do 
all the good we can. Let it be your aim to have the glory of God as 
your ultimate end in all you do. I desire to commit you to, and 
leave you with, the Father of all mercies and God of all grace. 

■ " 'That you may be directed safely through an evil world to 
God's heavenly kingdom, is the sincere prayer of your aged grand- 
father, David Mack.' 

"By such counsels as these, and a corresponding example, and 
fervent prayers, he was a faithful steward in the care of the children 
which God gave him, and also of his children's children ; and this 
labor was not in vain in the Lord, for most of his grandchildren are 
hopefully pious. 

"Col. Mack's early advantages were very limited, for previous to 
his marriage he had been to school but six weeks. He once expos- 
tulated with his father because he did not give him more opportunity 
to attend school. His father replied, 'David, I never went to school 
but three weeks in my life ; you have been six and ought to be satis- 

364 History of the Mack Family. 

fied.' But this did not satisfy him. He afterwards went to the 
common school of those days with his own children, and spelled in 
the same class with his son David who was six years old. 

"Thus improving his mind, Col. Mack increased in understand- 
ing. He kept along with the progress of the times. He was a 
friend and patron of learning, and gave large sums in aid of public 
seminaries. He assisted indigent young men in their studies, and 
offered his three sons a liberal education. 

"His life is identified with the entire history of the town in which 
he lived ; in his prime he was prominent in all its public affairs, con- 
stantly filling some office of trust and honor, as selectman, assessor, 
justice of the peace, representative to the legislature, colonel of the 
militia and deacon of the church. To this last office he was early 
appointed, an.d served in it acceptably until he resigned at seventy- 
five years of age. 

"It was principally by his agency that Middlefield was incorpor- 
ated into a town, the advantages of which were from the first foreseen 
by him. Having obtained a knowledge of the region while hunting, 
and defined the boundaries for a new town, he called a meeting of 
the citizens to consider the matter. They approved the object, but 
dreaded the expense and the opposition of the interested towns. He 
told them he would undertake the business ; if successful, they 
should defray the expenses ; if he failed, the loss should be his own. 
They consented, and he succeeded. The act of incorporation was 
granted March 12, 1783. It was also mainly through his agency, 
that the meeting house was erected in 1791. Previous to this reli- 
gious meetings were held in his barn and large chambers of his house, 
and town meetings in his kitchen. He occupied the pew in which he 
was first seated, fifty-four years, during which period more than thirty, 
who were at different times his seat mates, deceased. 

"He attended constantly on divine worship. He was not afraid 
of the snow and vapor, the stormy wind, rain or distance. He was 
glad to go ; he was joyful in God's house ; he sat there with great 
delight, and the preaching seemed better and better. Col. Mack had 
a heart for it ; and for years, until there was a religious society in 
Middlefield, he went, on foot, to Chester, six miles, during a great 
portion of the year. And, in the winter's cold on those mountains, 
he frequently went with an ox sled, carrying his own and his neigh- 

Fourth Generatiox. 365 

bors' families. This occupied him from sunrise to sunset, and fre- 
quently longer. 

"He had a strong constitution, good health, a keen discernment, 
sound judgment and untiring industry. Besides the land on which 
he settled, then a wilderness, he used facetiously to say, that when he 
removed to Middlefield, his property consisted of a poor horse, an 
axe and his wife and child. 

"Thus it was not much that he had to begin with ; but he was 
industrious, economical and faithful ; so prompt in the payment of his- 
debts, that no one, in any instance during his long business life,, 
called for money due from him, without his paying it ; a peculiar 
excellence and worthy of all imitation. 

"He was a merchant as well as a farmer; and he established 
many young men in the mercantile business in the adjacent towns. 
He also established in business the first blacksmith, the first boot 
and shoemaker, and first saddle and harness maker who followed 
their respective trades in Middlefield, 

"In those days it was not customary to promote benevolent 
enterprises, but he was in advance of the times in which he lived. In 
large sums he bestowed more than eighteen thousand dollars ; and 
his smaller offerings, to promote human welfare, are supposed to 
have been not less than eighteen thousand dollars more. He was 
one of the founders of the Hampshire Missionary Society ; and he 
made himself, by his contributions, a life member of twelve benevo- 
lent societies ; and, at a period when it was regarded as doubtful 
whether all the missionary societies in the country could support one 
missionary in a foreign land, he removed that doubt by a donation of 
one thousand dollars, which, at that time, was an almost unparalleled 
act of liberality. 

"In the year 18 14, he presented each of his children with a set 
of Scott's Family Bible, which cost him three hundred and sixty dol- 
lars. He left for the church and society, of which he had so long 
been a member, a fund of three thousand dollars for the support of 
the Gospel, in all coming time. 

"Col. Mack was not too faithful. He felt that he had done too 
little for the Savior who died for him. His hope was in Christ and 
in him alone. He felt himself to be nothing but a sinner saved by 
grace. He lived till satisfied with long life. Though his hearing

was yet perfect, and his eye scarcely dim, and his natural force not 
much abated, he did not wish to live longer ; his days were full, his 
work was done, he chose to depart, 'and he was not for God took him.'

She was born in 1779. He removed to Kinderhook, Columbia 
Co., N. Y., and from there to Cooperstown, N. Y., and later to 

370 History of the Mack Family. 

Owego, N. Y, He, while a merchant at Cooperstown, had a contract 
in 1799 with the government to furnish about 100,000 spars, to be 
deUvered at Baltimore. In March of that year a freshet in the Sus- 
quehanna river carried away all the timber, which he had purchased 
and paid for in goods out of his store, and made him a bankrupt. He 
removed in 1799 to Owego, N. Y. He engaged again in the mer- 
cantile business. He purchased, in 1805, the American Farmer 
printing office, and published the newspaper until his death. He 
was a prominent and influential citizen. Justice of the Peace. 
Supervisor, 1807-8, 1811-12. First Judge of Broome County, N. Y., 
18 1 2-1 4. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, and Aug. 28, 
1804, was one of the petitioners for a lodge at Owego, He was a 
taxable inhabitant of the Town of Tioga, Tioga County, N. Y., in 
1802. He died April 14 (o. 16), 18 14, at Owego, N. Y. His second 
wife Mary died Feb, 20, 1862, at the same place. 

"Stephen Mack was born in New Marlborough, Mass., March 
2oth, 1766. He was twice married; first to Mary Chambers, who 
died while they resided at or near Cooperstown, leaving four children, 
Elizabeth, Stephen, Phoebe and Ebenezer. Subsequently he married 
in 1797 at Cooperstown, N. Y., Mary Serjants, daughter of Lemuel 
Serjants then recently from Bellows Falls, Vt. She survived him 
nearly half a century and died at Owego February 20th, 1862. By 
his second wife he had two children, Horace and Maria. Mr. Mack 
removed to Owego in 1799 and soon became one of the most active 
and prominent citizens. We find it recorded that 'in the early settle- 
ment of Owego he held the office of Commissioner of Highways, 
Assessor, Excise Commissioner and Constable and that he repre- 
sented the town of Owego on the Board of Supervisors in 1807, 1808, 
1811, 1812. He also served several years as Justice of the Peace. 
From Nov. 11, 18 12, until his death which occurred at Owego, April 
1 6th, 181 4, he held the office of First Judge of Common Pleas of the 
County of Broome under a commission from Governor Tompkins. 

" 'Sometime previous to 1807 he became the publisher of the 
American Farmer which he continued until his death, but in the few 
copies of this paper that time has spared we find little or nothing by 
way of editorial to give a clue to his cast of mind, political bent or 
literary ability. His remains now lie in Evergreen cemetery, having 
been twice removed, first from the old ground on Court Street to the

Presbyterian yard on Temple Street and thence, in 1875, to their 
present resting place.' " 

The following is from Gay's Historical Gazetteer of Tioga County : 

"Judge Stephen Mack, the second newspaper publisher in 
Owego, was born in Massachusetts March 20, 1766. In 1799, while 
keeping a general country store in Cooperstown, N. Y., he made a 
contract with the United States government to furnish about 100,000 
spars, to be delivered at Baltimore, Md. He purchased the timber 
in the winter, paying for it in goods from his store. In March, 1799, 
while about to start it down the river there came a great freshet, 
carrying away and scattering along the stream all of his timber. He 
came down the river to Owego in quest of his property, but ascer- 
taining that it would cost him as much to secure it as it would be 
worth when gathered together again, he abandoned his search. The 
loss of his timber made him a bankrupt. 

"During his sojourn in Owego he had become impressed with 
the beauty of the Susquehanna valley and its apparent advantages to 
settlers, and he at once returned here to live. He was a man of 
great vigor, enterprise and ability, and he at once became an active 
and prominent citizen. He engaged in the mercantile business, in 
which he was successful. He was prominent in public affairs and 
held the offices of commissioner of highways, assessor, excise com- 
missioner and constable, and he represented the town of Owego in 
the board of supervisors in 1807, 1808, 1811 and 1812. He also 
served several years as justice of the peace. From 18 12 to 18 15 he 
was first judge of the court of common pleas of the county of Tioga. 
He died in Owego April 16, 18 14, in the 49th year of his age. His 
remains were interred in the old burying ground in Court Street. 
They were afterward removed to the Presbyterian yard in Temple 
Street. In 1875 they were again removed to Evergreen cemetery." 

The following is a copy of his commission as County Judge :

"Dep. Secretary." 

At the time of her death the "Owego Gazette" of Feb'y 27th, 
1862, said : 

"Departed this life on Thursday, the 20th inst., at the residence 
of her son-in-law, John Carmichael, Esq., Mrs. Mary Mack, aged '^^i 
years, consort of Hon. Stephen Mack, one of the early residents of 
this Village. Indeed, he may almost be said to have been a pioneer 
in this locality, for he settled here as early as 1799. Partaking in a 
large degree of the elements of personal popularity, and combining 
talent with conceded integrity and purity of purpose, he was among 
the most prominent of the public men of this section of our State, 
and filled many stations of honor and public trust. His family con- 
sisted of three sons and three daughters : Stephen, Ebenezer, Horace, 
Betsey, Phoebe and Maria. The three former resided many years in 
the Village of Ithaca, Tompkins County, and were among the most 
useful and respectable of the citizens of that place. The eldest was 

Fourth Generation. 373 

a lawyer by profession, the second edited for a long period a public 
paper and subsequently was elected to the Senate of this State, and 
the third was distinguished for his moral worth and business capacity 
as a merchant. The eldest daughter, Betsey, married Benjamin 
Benedict, Esq., for many years a resident of the county of Delaware, 
some time since deceased. Phoebe, a Mr. Crawford, and Maria, the 
youngest, was the former wife of Mr. Carrnichael. She died at 
( )wego, N. Y., Sept. 22, 1829, 8 p. m., ac. 29 y. 2 ms. 22 d. These 
children are all dead with the exception of Mrs. Benedict. Judge 
Mack died in 18 14, and the subject of this notice has remained his 
widow from that time down to the period of her death. Blest by 
nature with a strong constitution, and possessing great physical and 
mental energ)', she seemed admirably calculated for the labors and 
responsibilities incident to her early life ; and, indeed, she retained 
those qualities until within a short period before its close. In the 
year 18 18, she united herself with the Presbyterian Church in this 
village, and it may with much truth be said that her daily walk and 
conversation have been in conformity with her profession. In a 
conversation with her pastor, a few days before her death, she 
expressed a full confidence in her religious faith, but seemed to enter- 
tain some dread as to the moment of conflict when the soul was to 
separate from the body. We are happy to learn, however, that before 
the hour of dissolution came, her mind was at rest upon that point, 
and that nine o'clock on the evening of the day already announced, 
she feel quietly asleep, in the arms, as we trust, of her Saviour and 
Redeemer : — 

'Mild as a saint, whose errors are forgiven ; 
Calm as a vestal,' and composed as Heaven.' "

sion was duly made out and forwarded to the Clerk of Tompkins 
Co. It is probable that it is now in that office but if it is not 
and has miscarried another will be made out and forwarded on 
my receiving notice that the previous one was not reed. I will 
return Judge Dana's resignation if I can lay my hands on it. 
At all events he may consider it not accepted. It will not be 

. handed over to my successor without his direction. Yours, &c. , 
W. L. Marcy." At the time of his death the "Tompkins 
County Democrat" said : "Died, in the Village of Ithaca, on the 
7th of January, 1857, of consumption, Stephen Mack, aged 72 
years. His funeral will be attended at 10 a. m. of Friday next 
from the residence of Mrs. E. Mack. Stephen Mack was bom 
December 29th, 1784, at Kinderhook, N. Y., and therefore at 
the date of his death, was about 72 years of age. He graduated 
at Yale College almost half a century ago, having belonged to 
the class of 18 13, of which Senator Badger, of North Carolina,

is one of the few surviving members. He studied law with 
Samuel Sherwood, of Delhi, N. Y., and, upon the death of his 
father, moved to Owego, from whence, about the 3'ear 1816, he 
came to Ithaca, and commenced the practice of law, which he 
continued until the period of his death. He was never married. 
As a lawyer he was methodical, diligent and learned, and often- 
times in a case requiring great study, care and investigation, a 
formidable adversary. Quiet and retired in his habits he min- 
gled little with the world, and gave almost his entire time to 
study and reflection. His illness was brief, originating in a 
sudden cold, and rapidly advanced to a fatal termination. In 
his death another of the links binding the present to the past 
has been rudely sundered. He was a brother of Ebenezer and 
Horace Mack, who, though younger in years, preceded him to 
the grave, and whose memories yet linger freshly among us. 
Now all are gone, and we shall see their familiar and accus- 
tomed faces no more among the scenes of life." The same 
issue of "Tompkins County Democrat" said : "At a meeting of 
the Bar of Tompkins County, held January 8th, 1857, upon 
occasion of the decease of Stephen Mack, Caleb B. Drake was 
appointed chairman, and Amasa Dana, secretary. Upon mo- 
tion, Messrs. B. G. Ferris, Alfred Welles and F. M. Finch were 
appointed to draft appropriate resolutions, upon whose report 
the following were unanimously adopted : Resolved, That in 
the removal by death of our professional brother, Stephen 
Mack, we feel called upon to pay that respect to his memory 
which his character deserves as one of the oldest members of 
the Tompkins Bar — as a diligent student, a learned lawyer, an 
honorable practitioner, and an honest man. Resolved, That as 
a mark of our respect for the memory of the deceased, we 
attend the funeral in a body. Resolved, That a copy of these 
resolutions be furnished to the press of our village for pub- 
lication. (Sgd.) Caleb B. Drake, Ch'n. Amasa Dana,

Professor William S. Tyler's History of Amherst College says of

"Hon. David Mack was a member of the Board of Trustees of 
Amherst College from 1836 to 1854. He was born in Middlefield, 
Mass., in February, 1778. He fitted for college at Windsor Hill, 
where Roger Sherman was his fellow-student ; but his eyes failed him 
and he was compelled to relinquish a public education. For twenty 
years he was a merchant in his native place. In 1834 he removed 
to Amherst. 

"He was several times Representative from Middlefield in the 
General Court, and once a member of the Massachusetts Senate from 
Hampshire County. He was also a member of the Governor's Coun- 
cil. In 18 1 2, he commanded for some months the militia of Boston, 
and thus acquired the title of General, by which he was usually 
known. For many years he was the senior deacon of the church in 

"Elected a member of the Board of Trustees shortly after his 
removal to Amherst, he continued a member till, after eighteen years 
of faithful service, his connection was dissolved by death. During 
nearly all these years he was a member also of the Prudential Com- 
mittee, and of building and other working committees generally. 
Being a resident in town he was always present at the meetings and 
constantly charged with special duties and responsibilities in relation 
to the College. At the same time he was always ready to contribute 
liberally to its pecuniary necessities according to his means. 

"Gen. Mack died September 6, 1854, aged seventy-six years. 
^He was a man of great decision of character and a devoted Christian,

religion, of which there were many — this one in 1831, Moody 
Harrington, class of '31, did a work which, if he had never done 
anything else, would entitle him to a place among those who are 
wise and turn many to righteousness. ' ' And in a note the follow- 
ing : "Mr. Beecher (Henry Ward, who entered Amherst in 1831), 
is accustomed to speak of Mr. Harrington as almost his spiritual 
father, to whom he owed more religiously than to any other 
man in College. Mr. Harrington afterwards married the daugh- 
ter of Gen. Mack. " 153 10.

Southold, L. L, N. Y., and with Dr. John W. Francis of New York 
City, and graduated at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in

was offered twice a professorship in the Homeopathic Medical Col- 
lege in New York City, was Censor many years and received from 
that institution the degree of M. D. in 1876. 

The National Cyclopedia of American Biography says : 

"Hallock, Lewis. He was born June 30, 1803, in New York 
City, son of Jacob and Sarah (Mather) Hallock. His father, a 
native of Southold, L. L, was a prominent merchant in New York 
until his death in 18 13. The family descends from Peter Hallock, 
leader of a colony ; the first white settlers on the eastern end of 
Long Island, where they purchased a large tract of land from the 
Indians and founded the town of Southold. After the death of his 
father, Lewis Hallock went to live with his grandmother at Matti- 
tuck, L. I., and completed his preparatory education at Clinton 
Academy, the second incorporated school in the State. He began 
the study of medicine with his uncle. Dr. Elisha Hallock, of Southold, 
and at the end of the year returned to New York City to continue 
his preparation under Dr. James W. Francis and at the College of 
Physicians and Surgeons, where he was graduated M. D., in 1825. 
After fifteen years of successful practice, his attention was called to 
the homeopathic system of medicine, then rapidly gaining strength 
in America, and after carefully investigating its claims, he announced 
himself a convert. The same course was pursued by a goodly por- 
tion of his classmates. In 1846 he joined the Homeopathic Institute 
of America, and later also the county and state societies; being 
President of city and county societies for one year each. For many 
years he was one of the board of censors of the Homeopathic Medi- 
cal College, in which he was twice offered and declined a professor- 
ship, and in 1876 received from its faculty and trustees the honorary 
degree of M. D. This honor was conferred on the occasion of the 
fiftieth anniversary of his graduation, when a dinner was given him 
at the Fifth Avenue Hotel. He lived to see the seventieth anniver- 
sary of the same event, and then received another complimentary 
dinner at the Savoy Hotel from the New York Medical Club, at 
which several highly congratulatory speeches and a poem by Dr. 
William Tod Helmuth were delivered on his nearly unparalleled 
record as an active practitioner. Although living to the advanced 
age of ninety-five, he continued in active practice until within a few

days of his death. Throughout hfe he was an earnest advocate of 
temperance, having as a young man founded the Young Men's Total 
Abstinence Society, which in 1836 published a weekly paper advo- 
cating the cause. To his principle in this regard he attributed his 
longevity, and indeed his unusual quickness of comprehension and 
rapidity of judgment was an excellent evidence of faculties well 
used. His contributions to homeopathic periodicals were numerous 
and representative, and to his influence is attributed much of the 
popularization the system has achieved. At the annual meeting of 
the American Institute of Homeopathy, held in Newport, R. I., in 
June, 1895, he was greeted with the greatest enthusiasm and made a 
few appropriate and pleasing remarks. Personally, Dr. Hallock was 
an exemplar of the most charming, old-fashioned, courtly manners 
and bearing, and although justly popular with a wide circle of friends 
and professional associates, was pre-eminently domestic in his tastes, 
belonging to but one club." 

He died March 3, 1897. Residence New York City.

work.) She was born May 27, 1800. He was a partner in the 
pubUcation of the Owego Gazette. He removed to Ithaca in 18 16. 
He was one of the most prominent and respected citizens of Ithaca 
in its early days. He was the editor and publisher of the Ithaca 
Journal, 1816-33. He also owned a bookstore, printing office, book- 
bindery and the Ithaca paper mills. He was called upon to fill 
many public positions. Member of Assembly, 1830. State Senator,

Ithaca and Owego Railroad Company, 1828. School Trustee, i8r8. 
The firm of Mack & Andrus, of which he was a member, were 
publishers of many books, some of their books, like Cobb's Spelling 
Book, having a very large sale. He was a member of the Masonic 
fraternity. An interesting journal kept by him, of a journey taken in 
1835 to New York City and Philadelphia, is in the possession of the 
family. He wrote a Life of Lafayette. He was foreman of the 
Columbian printing office in New York City and resigned to enter 
into partnership, June 15, 18 15, with Stephen B. Leonard in the 
publication of the newspaper now known as the Owego Gazette. 

The following letter of recommendation given to him at the 
time has been preserved in the family : 



Fifth Generation. 395 

"New York, Januar}- 7, 1815. 
'•The bearer, Mr. Kbenezer Mack, is a young man of genius, 
intelligence, sobriety and integrity, a good writer (in verse and prose) 
and correct republican, and a capable and quick workman as a 
printer ; as I have found by the experience of between three and 
four years past. "Charles Holt, 

"Edit. Columbian." 

The Ithaca Democrat in 1S8S published a History of St. John's 
Protestant Episcopal Church of Ithaca, N. Y., which contained the 
following reference to him : 

"April 8, 1822, a few faithful churchmen held a meeting in the 
Methodist 'Meeting House' and organized an iLpiscopal Church. 
Ebenezer Mack was chosen a vestryman." 

At the time of his death "The Flag of Our Union," said : 

"Our village is again called to mourning — and not only the 
village, but the county and the state at large. 

••This morning, at half-past six o'clock the stroke of death 
passed upon Ebenezer Mack. Mr. Mack was a man of rare endow- 
ments ; for him nature had done much, and the talent and qualifica- 
tion thus bestowed, was, through the changes of an extended and 
busy life, improved, for the benefit of society, by the most untiring 
industry and a never yielding energy. 

"Possessed of a strong mind and cultivated intellect, which was 
always actively engaged for the good of those around him, Mr, 
Mack laid deeply, in the regard of our whole community, the founda- 
tions for that high estimate for character and moral worth, which 
now, in the realization of his loss, is everywhere manifested. He 
was a man of the most sterling integrity, none more reliable in 
friendship than he, none more ready to engage in any work of public 
importance and utility, and push it to a successful issue. Providence 
prospered him greatly in his undertakings, and he had the happiness 
of living to see his family, his friends, and this his cherished village, 
with all its religious, benevolent, literary and business institutions, 
eminently prosperous. 

'•Mr. Mack has filled a large place in the political concerns of 
our county and state, having been for many years a member of the 
Assembly and of the Senate, postmaster in the village, and printer to 

396 History of the Mack Family. 

the Senate. In his poHtical as well as in his social connections, his 
loss will be deeply felt. 

"Mr. Mack was born at Kinderhook Landing, now Stuyvesant, 
in 1 79 1. In early life he came with his father's family to Owego. 
There his father purchased the printing establishment of the late 
Dan Conger, and published a paper called the American Farmer, 
(if we recollect rightly.) Here Mr. Mack acquired his knowledge 
of the craft. He aided, and after his father's death, succeeded as 
the publisher. This establishment he sold to S. B. Leonard, Esq., 
from whom, we think, it received the name — the Owego Gazette. 

"After some improvement in his qualifications in New York, 
Mr. Mack came to this village, then in its incipient condition, in 
1815, and purchased a press, etc., which had been started here by 
IngersoU and Shepherd. This was the origin of the Ithaca Journal 
which was conducted by him, as editor, for many years. The 
exertion of his talents and industry resulted in giving to that paper 
the high character which, under him, it enjoyed at home and abroad. 

"About twenty-six years ago William Andrus, Esq., became 
associated with him in the concern, and the business was gradually 
but speedily extended from the small beginning of a very limited 
book and stationery establishment connected with the newspaper, 
until it has become the largest bookstore, printing office, bindery and 
paper making establishment in western New York. The interest of 
Mr. Mack in the Journal ceased many years since, as is well known. 
"Mr. Mack was a member of the Episcopal Society in this village. 
He died of consumption in the fifty-ninth year of his age. His 
decease occurring this morning just as we were about to put our 
paper to press, (we stopped for this notice), it is not in our power to 
do what would be just to the memory of the deceased, and satisfactory 
to our own feelings. 

"To our village the language of Divine Providence, in the 
removal, within a short time, of many of our most prominent and 
useful men, is very express. The loss of Frederick M. Camp, Daniel 
Bishop, Ben Johnson, Timothy S. Williams, Charles F, Woodruff 
and Ebenezer Mack, would be felt in any city of the Union. There 
is no exemption from the inevitable decree. 

"Alike the river's lowly tide 
Alike the humble violet's glide 
To that sad wave. 
Let us look for light bej'ond the tomb."

"About the year 1822 an almost fatal encounter took place be- 
tween Horace Mack and a German fencing master. Mr. Mack had 
expressed some doubts regarding the quaUfications of this gentleman, 
who resented it very highly, and the final result was a challenge by 
the German to fight a duel. The challenged of course having the 
choice of weapons, selected pistols. The day and hour were chosen, 
and the place for the affair of honor appointed on the banks of the 
Six Mile creek, directly opposite the reservoir of water called the 
'Hemp Hole,' which was about ten feet deep. At the appointed 
time and place for the deadly combat to come off hundreds of 
people, of all sexes and ages, were found awaiting on the banks, 
where they soon expected to see the green turf drink the blood of 
the vanquished. The good sense of Mr. Mack arid the seconds 
proved most valuable. The arrangements and order were perfect. 
The combatants approached each other, as is usual, to shake hands, 
when Mr. Mack, taking a rather strong hold of the man of the sword, 
and with a peculiar look, and a more peculiar trip and jerk, sent the 
offended German headlong into the ' Hemp Hole' where he was 
received without a dissenting voice. The roars of laughter which 
followed the maneuver were loud and hearty and we doubt not are 
still heard by the man, who failing in subduing his rival foe, took a 
hasty and precipitate retreat from the county." 

At the time of his death "The American Citizen" said : 

"Hon. Horace Mack, one of our oldest and most respected 
citizens, died in this village on Monday afternoon last. Mr. Mack 
was a merchant among us many years ago, in which capacity he 
formed an extensive business acquaintance, and won the esteem and 
respect of all. He was elected to the Assembly of this state from 
this district some years since, the duties of which station he per- 
formed with ability. In 1849 he was elected clerk of this county in 
which office he acquired the renewed confidence of the entire com- 
munity. As a private citizen and a neighbor Mr. Mack has ever 

Fifth Generation. 399 

been beloved, and he leaves behind him a population who are in 
sorrow at his loss." 

The following is from the "Ithaca Journal and Advertiser" of 
Sept. 1 2th, 1855 : 

"Mr. Horace Mack, an old resident of our village, died on 
Monday afternoon last, of prevailing disease, dysentery. Mr. Mack 
was for many years a merchant here, and in that position he won 
the respect of the entire community. He was elected County Clerk 
in 1849, ^^^ served out his term with honor to himself, and in all 
the public stations which he has filled, he has ever been esteemed 
and beloved." 

The following notice of Horace Mack appeared in the same 
paper (Ithaca Journal and x-Vdvertiser) of date Sept. 19th, 1855 : 

"As our paper of last week was going to press we were suddenly 
called upon to briefly record the decease of Horace Mack, Esq., one 
of our oldest and most esteemed citizens. We say oldest, not in 
years, but as a citizen of Ithaca, having been identified with its 
business and interests for the space of nearly forty years. 

'He was brother of the Hon. Ebenezer Mack, who established 
the Journal we now continue, and whose decease a few years since 
we recorded. 

"Mr. Mack was born at Cooperstown, Otsego County, January 
20th, 1799, and in infancy removed with his father's family to 
Owego, Tioga County, where he resided until the year 18 17, when 
he made Ithaca his residence and where, with slight exceptions, he 
resided till his decease. 

"Mr. Mack's history is nearly that of the mercantile history of 
our village. On his coming to Ithaca he entered the mercantile 
house of Mr. Levi Leonard, then one of the largest operators in our 
infant place, where he remained till 1820, when Jeremiah S. Beebe, 
Esq., from New York, made this his home, and Mr. Mack entered 
his establishment as salesman and acted as such until the year 1825, 
then commenced business on his own account under the firm of H. 
Mack & Co., since which time, excepting 1834-5 — when on account 
of ill health he made his residence in Spencer, Tioga County, and 
gave his attention to farming and milling — his history was that of 

400 History of the Mack Family, 

the mercantile history of our place until 1848, when he retired from 
active mercantile life. 

"Politically, Mr. Mack was a Democrat of the old school, and 
in that way largely enjoyed the confidence of the public. He repre- 
sented this county in the Legislature in 1832, during the stormy 
times of the United States bank question, and aided in sustaining 
our state institutions against that gigantic monied power. He was a 
member of the board of directors of the Tompkins County Bank, 
from its organization in 1836, till his decease. He was Clerk of the 
County from 1850 to 1853. 

"The deep sympathy manifested by the public in view of his 
demise, is the fruits of a life not alone devoted to his individual 
interest. He possessed a large and liberal heart, and his freedom 
from selfishness endeared him to all who were favored by his acquaint- 
ance. In him the young man, the mechanic, the laboring man, 
always found a sympathizing friend, the public a faithful servant, 
and society one of its most desired ornaments. Of him as a hus- 
band, father and neighbor, we need not speak, for to all who thus 
knew him his loss is irreparable." 

In the same issue also appeared the following : 

"At a regular meeting of Ithaca Lodge No. 71, held at their 
room, on Friday, Sept. 14, 1855, the following resolutions reported 
by Bros. Selkreg, Buckbee and Wells, were unanimously adopted : 

"Whereas, The Almighty Ruler of the Universe has seen fit in 
his Providence to remove from active life, Horace Mack, a member 
of this Lodge, who as a merchant commanded the respect and 
esteem of his fellow tradesmen, whose character as a public oflficer 
was above suspicion, and who as a man has left a void which will 
long remain unfilled, therefore 

"Resolved, That while the shadow of the grave hides all his 
faults if any ever existed, and while his virtues grow brighter from 
the knowledge that we shall see him no more on this earth forever, 
we mourn the departure of Bro. Mack, one of our most enterprising 
citizens, and condole with the family of the deceased and his stricken 
relatives, who knew him more intimately than the world, and loved 
him more fully and entirely. 

"Resolved, That, as a sense of our loss as an order, and our 

Fifth Generation. 401 

sympathy with the bereaved friends, that a copy of these resolutions 
be presented them, entered on our minutes and published.

At the time of his death the "Owego Gazette" said : 

'•Again we are called upon to record the death of one of Owego's 
oldest and most respected citizens. John Carmichael died at his 
residence on Church Street at six o'clock yesterday morning in the 
eighty-third year of his age, after an illness of several months. 

"Mr. Carmichael was born at Johnstown, Montgomery (now 
Fulton) County, August 12, 1795. At the age of sixteen years he 
went to Albany and commenced an apprenticeship to learn the trade 
of a jeweller and watchmaker. He came to Owego on the 31st day 
of October, 18 19, and hired a shop in Caldwell Row, a wooden 
block of stores which occupied the ground on which the western

portion of the Ahwaga House now stands, and commenced business 
as a jeweller. In 1835 he built a store on the ground now occupied 
by the Tioga National Bank where he continued to conduct a suc- 
cessful jewelry business until his building was destroyed in the 
great fire of September, 1849. As he was in poor health at that 
time, he retired permanently from active business, being succeeded 
by his sons, who continued the business in Lake Street. 

"Mr. Carmichael was twice married — first on the 25th of Decem- 
ber, 1824, to Maria Mack (daughter of Judge Stephen Mack, 
deceased) who died Sept. 22, 1829; afterward, June 10, 1835, to 
Harriet Ely, who survives him. 

"Mr. Carmichael was the first Collector of the Village of Owego 
at the time of its organization in 1827 and was elected every year 
thereafter to 1834 inclusive. He was also one of the Village 
Assessors in 1845, 1851, 1852 and 1853. 

"Mr. Carmichael has been an active, conscientious and useful 
citizen. In business affairs he has been scrupulously correct. A 
man of kind and amiable sentiments and feelings, he was universally 
esteemed. He was for many years a faithful member of the Pres- 
byterian Church and he lived and. died a true Christian. He leaves 
a wife and one son, Mr. Charles S. Carmichael."

having failed. He succeeded so well that they invited him to come 
and settle there, and while there had the appointment of two profes- 
sorships, Geology and Chemistry. After some years he was 
appointed to make a geological survey of Ohio, and he was so 
successful that New York invited him to make a survey of that state. 
He removed to Albany, and while there, wrote several books on

Natural History, 1833-59 ! Professor of Mineralogy and Geology, 
1859-63, at Williams College. Professor of Natural History and

The National Cyclopedia of Biography says of him : 

'•Ebenezer Emmons, geologist, was born at Middlefield, Hamp- 
shire County, Mass., May 16, 1799, son of Ebenezer and Mary 
(Mack) Emrhons, nephew of the celebrated divine, Nathaniel 
Emmons, D. D., and descendant of an early settler of Connecticut. 
His father was a farmer, and between home duties and attending 
school he found a little time, when a boy, to spend in collecting 
insects and minerals, a taste he developed early. He was sent to 
Plainfield, Mass., to study under Rev. Moses Hallock, pastor of the 
Congregational Church there, who was famed as an educator, and 
had at various times, as members of his family and pupils, William 
Cullen Bryant, John Brown of Ossowotamie and James Henr>' Cofhn, 
the meteorologist. From Plainfield he went to Williams College 
where he had as instructors in science Amos Eaton and Chester 
Dewey, and was graduated in 18 18. He then entered the Rensselaer 
Polytechnic Institute at Troy, N. Y., and was graduated in 1826. 
In the same year he published a 'Manual of Mineralogy and Geology' 
for use as a text-book in the Institute. He now studied medicine at 
the Berkshire Medical School, and settled as a practitioner in 
Chester, Mass.; but in 1828 removed to Williamstown, Mass., and 
in the same year was appointed lecturer on Chemistry in the college. 
In 1833 his department was broadened, a chair of Natural History 
being founded, but he was retained at its head and remained pro- 
fessor of Mineralogy and Geology after the department was divided

in 1859, serving until his death. From 1830 until 1839 ^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^ 
additional position of junior professor in the Rensselaer Institute. 
Dr. Emmons carried on, at the same time, an extensive practice and 
rose to the head of his profession in Berkshire County. In 1836 he 
became connected with the geological survey of New York State, 
having been appointed by Gov. Marcy. He chose the second dis- 
trict, which included the Adirondack mountains, partly because that 
region abounded in minerals ; partly because it gave him an oppor- 
tunity to verify certain conclusions propounded by Professor Eaton 
in his lectures at Williams College. These related to a system of 
stratified rocks, constituting a subordinate range of the Appalachian 
system, and including the Berkshire, Mass., and Vermont limestones. 
Professor Emmons, in his geological report published in 1842, 
claimed that this system of rocks, which he named the Taconic, after 
the range to which belong Mt. Washington and Greylock, in Massa- 
chusetts, underlaid and was older than the Siluvian system. This 
opened a controversy with other geologists that continued up to the 
time of his death, and he was denounced and ridiculed unmercifully ; 
but his conclusions were strengthened by later discoveries and are 
now accepted, in part at least, by nearly all American geologists. In 
the latter part of 1842, by appointment of Gov. Seward, Prof. Emmons 
became custodian of the collections made by the survey, which had 
been arranged by Prof. Vanuxen and Prof. Hall at Albany, and 
aided the latter in completing the work in agriculture and paleontol- 
ogy. In 1843 1^^ g^^^ ^P paleontology to devote himself, by appoint- 
ment, to an investigation of the agricultural resources of New York 
State, and published five reports (1846-54) treating of the geology, 
climate, soils, agricultural products, insects injurious to vegetation, 
and allied subjects. He resigned his custodianship in 1848, and 
about the year 185 1 was appointed State Geologist of North Caro- 
lina, and, besides 'determining the probable age of the red sandstone 
belt that stretches from the Connecticut valley to North Carolina,' 
made important discoveries of fossils in the coal measures of the 
Deep and Dan rivers. Three volumes of reports were published 
(1856-60), one of these relating to the geology of the midland 
counties ; the other two to the agriculture of the eastern counties 
and to the science of agriculture in general. His published writings 
not already mentioned are: 'Toology of Massachusetts' (1840J, 

Sixth Generation. 415 

dealing with the quadrupeds ; 'American Geology' (1855); 'Manual 
of Geology' (1859). His name is borne by one of the Adirondack 
peaks and by the highest summit of East mountain in the Berkshire 
hills. He remained in North Carolina after the Civil War broke out, 
and died in Brunswick County in that state."

accumulated a moderate fortune after a five years' stay. He returned 
home and studied medicine and graduated at the Cleveland Medical 
College. Homeopathic physician. Captain in the New York State 

At the time of his death a Norwalk, Ohio, newspaper said of him : 
"The many friends of Dr. L. H. Fenner will receive the intelli- 
gence of his death with deep regret. He died in Cleveland last 
Wednesday night. He had been in poor health about two months, 
and a short time previous to his death he took up his abode at the 
Cleveland Water-Cure, hoping to be benefited by Hydropathic treat- 
ment. But all efforts were unavailing, and he has been cut down in 
the full vigor of manhood. 

"Dr. Fenner came to Norwalk a little more than a year ago and 
became associated with Dr. Tifft in the practice of medicine. His 
correct and gentlemanly deportment, together with the strict atten- 
tion which he paid to the practice of his profession, caused him to be 
highly esteemed by our citizens generally. In his death, we feel 
that our town has lost one of its best inhabitants." 

When he and his companions started from New York City they 
purchased the ship Comorro in which they made the journey around 
Cape Horn to San Francisco. He engaged in business there and 
bought the interests of his partners in the ship. He loaded the ship 

424 History of the Mack Family, 

with hides and started it for New York City, under Capt. Nathaniel 
Gorden. The Captain threw the hides overboard and sailed for the 
coast of Africa and engaged in the slave trade, Mrs, Fenner corre- 
sponded with the American Consul at Rio Janeiro, Brazil, and the 
Captain was arrested, tried, convicted and executed. She was chiefly 
instrumental in securing his conviction. 

The following is a copy of a document in connection with the 
affair which proves the value of her testimony at the trial : 

"U, S, Marshal's Office, 
"Southern District of New York. 
"New York, July 3rd, 1866. 
"I certify that previous to the Execution of Nathaniel Gordon, 
the African Slave Trader, in this City, in February, 1862, I delivered 
to President Lincoln certain papers furnished me by Mrs. Fenner, 
disclosing the fact, that Gordon had stolen the Brig 'Camargo,' be- 
longing to her husband, and proceeded with her to the coast of 
Africa, and after taking on board a cargo of negroes, thence pro- 
ceeded to the coast of Brazil, After discharging the negroes and 
selling them, he burned the vessel, and made his escape in women's 
clothes. These papers were delivered to the President by me, about 
a week previous to Gordon's Execution, in order to prevent a com- 
mutation of his sentence, 

"RoBT. Murray, 
"Seal, U. S, Marshal." 

The New York Tribune of Dec. 17, 1868, said: 

"A writer in The Atlantic Monthly, referring to the execution of 
Gordon, the slave trader, says : 'Whatever Gordon's life may have 
been worth to him or to his friends, I think this country put it to a 
very good use when she hanged him, A storm of protests was 
made against his death. Twenty-five thousand people petitioned 
Abraham Lincoln to spare that man's life, and Abraham Lincoln 
refused. Gordon was hanged. All through the little ports and big 
ports of the United States it was known that a slave trader had been 
hanged. And when that was known, the American slave trade 
ended. All up and down little African rivers that you never heard 
the names of it was known that an American slave trader had been 
hanged, and cowardly pirates trembled, and brave seamen cheered

when they heard it. Mothers of children thanked such gods as they 
knew how to thank, and slaves shut up in barracoons, waiting for 
their voyage, got signal that something had happened which was to 
give them freedom. That something was that Gordon was hanged. 
So far that little candle threw its beams.' "

The History of Four Counties, so-called, says of him : 

"Prominent among the members of the Tompkins County bar, 
in days past, and the pioneer of that respectable body, in fact, is 
Samuel Love, who for upwards of half a century practiced law in 
Ithaca. Samuel Love was born in Kingsbury, Washington County, 
N. Y., July 28, 1797, and is consequently now (1878) in the eighty- 
second year of his age. His father, John Love, was born in Rhode 
Island, in June, 1764, and his mother, Annar Burnett Love, was also 
a native of that state. In January, 1813, the family removed from 
Washington County to the town of Groton (then Locke) where 
Samuel received the rudiments of his education at the public schools. 
His father died in 1823, and his mother in 1842, and the only sur- 
viving members of his family direct are one brother, Isaac Love, of 
Ithaca, and a sister, Esther, now the wife of John D. Fuller of 
Moravia, N. Y. Mr. Love commenced the study of law with Lewis 
Tooker, and completed his legal studies in the office of Alpha H. 
Shaw. He was admitted to the bar of Tompkins County in 1824, 
and two years later was made a practitioner in the Supreme Court 
of the State. He entered upon the duties of his profession with a 
commendable determination to succeed, and after a long and suc- 
cessful practice has nominally retired on a well-earned competency. 
In 1828, Mr. Love was elected Clerk of Tompkins County, and such 
was the satisfaction he gave in that responsible office that he was 
re-elected in 1831, serving in all six years. In 1835 he was appointed 

426 History of the Mack Family. 

District Attorney, which position he retained six years, performing 
its duties impartially and well. The main characteristics in the 
career of Samuel Love has been a desire to discharge all public and 
private duties in a conscientious and upright manner, to maintain a 
reputation for individual rectitude and integrity, and, in short, to 
make a personal application of the Golden Rule, believing that the 
basic fabric of moral and civil law is founded upon that grand old 

Lawyer. County Clerk. District Attorney. He died April 9,

father's death, he remained but one year. He conducted a manu- 
facturing business from 1856 to i860, and was thereafter employed 
in various local enterprises until 1882. Since the latter date he has 
served as Assistant in the Land Department of Cornell University. 

"Aside from occasional contributions to the local press, his 
published literary efforts have been few. He wrote a Historical 
Sketch of Ithaca for the Centennial year, 1876, which, in modified 
form, was published by Everts & Ensign, Philadelphia, in their 
'History of Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins and Schuyler Counties,' 
1877 ; Histories of the towns of 'Chicopee,' 'Amherst' and 'Hadley' 
and a chapter on 'The Regicides,' for the work entitled 'History of 
the Connecticut Valley,' L. H. Everts, Philadelphia, 1878 ; and the 
'History of Columbiana County, Ohio', W, E. Ensign, Philadelphia, 

"Mr. Mack was a Trustee of the Village, 1862, 3, 4, and 5 ; and 
a member of the School Board, from March, 1875, ^o July, 1883." 

The Owego Gazette of May 30, 1878, contained the following 
interesting letter from him : 

"Ithaca, May 25th, 1878. 
"Messrs. Beebe & Kingman : 

"The dates of the file of the old American Farmer in my pos- 
session are from August 29th, 18 10, to July 2d, 181 1, — vol. 8, Nos. 
8 to 47 inclusive — whole Nos. 367 to 411. All have the cut of an 
eagle in the heading, such as described by you. The legend borne 
in the beak of the bird I have deciphered to be 'Pleuribus Unum.' 
E seems to have gone astray. As mention was made in your article 
of 23d of my father's apprenticeship to the printing business, and its 
abrupt termination at his father's death in 18 14, I would merely add 
that he (Horace) was again apprenticed, but to the mercantile, not 
printing, business, to Horatio Ross, for five years from Jan. 20, 1815. 
This service was performed for a yearly salary, increasing from eighty 
dollars for the first year to two hundred for the fifth. In addition 
Mr. Ross agreed, in the language of the 'Indenture' (now before me,) 
'to find and allow the said Horace Mack, meat, drink, washing and 
lodging during the said term fit and convenient for the said appren- 
tice.' On the other hand, as to the apprentice, it reads, 'at cards, 
dice, or any unlawful games, he shall not play. Taverns or ale 
houses he shall not frequent. Matrimony he shall not contract. 


Sixth Generation. 431 

From the service of his master he shall not depart, etc' This 
document is witnessed by Stephen Mack and Wm. Piatt. By the 
commission to Stephen Mack, Esq., which I have, dated Nov. nth, 
181 2, and signed by Daniel D. Tompkins, the said Mack was made 
first Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in and for the county of 
Broome. Emanuel Coryell was appointed first Judge of Tioga 
County March 31, 18 10, and was succeeded by Judge Gamaliel H. 
Barstow, June 22, 1818. It appears, therefore, that Owego was then 
in the county of Broome.

Landmarks of Tompkins County says of him : 

"The first of the Hibbards to come to this county was Henry 
Hibbard, a native of Winham, Conn., who came here in 181 2, and 
in partnership with JuHus Ackley established the first hat manufactory 
in Ithaca, later adding a store in the same line. In 181 6 he married 
Rhoda Ackley, who died without issue, and he married second, 
Nancy Tillotson, in 18 19. by whom he had two children : Mary, who 
married Thomas St. John ; and Henry Fitch Hibbard. Timothy, 
the father of Henry, first mentioned, came to this county about 1818, 
and settled on a farm in the northeastern portion of this town, which 
settlement has ever since born the name of Hibbard's Corners. He 
died in 1837. Henry Hibbard was one of the most prominent busi- 
ness men in the early history of this city (Ithaca), taking an import- 
ant part in all enterprises for the public good. He was heavily 
interested in real estate, and in 1828, in connection with Ackley & 
Beebe built the Clinton House which still stands as a landmark of 
the county. He died in 1863. Henry F. Hibbard was for a number 
of years the teller in the old Ithaca Bank, and later conducted a 
general store. In 1853, in company with Thomas P. St. John, he 
established a factory for the manufacture of sewing silks, which 
until 1 86 1 was one of the leading industries of this section, at that 
year, however, he returned to the mercantile business. He was at 
one time greatly interested in speculation, but during his later years 
withdrew from all active business with the exception of his connection 
with the Savings Bank of which he was a founder. He was a Demo- 
crat and served as Supervisor at one time." 

At the time of his death the Ithaca Journal said of him : 

"In his death Ithaca loses one of its foremost leaders in all 
thought and action regarding public projects and its best advocate 
in all things looking to its weal. A man of sympathy, kindly 
impulses and untiring energy — his loss will prove a greater one than 
many of its citizens endowed with greater wealth. The organizer of 

Sixth Generation. 433 

a yet young manufacturing business, daily increasing in importance, 
and in its demands upon his moments and energies, he never refused 
pubUc demand upon either his time or purse. He was truly a warm 
hearted friend, a man of rare abilities, a companionable man and a 
public spirited citizen in all that the term implies. To those who 
know him best his memory will remain dearest." 

He died Aug. 4, 1880, from injuries received on night of 
reception of the victorious Cornell crew. Residence Ithaca, N. Y.

writer Printing and Publishing Co. Director in Weekly Underwriter 
Co. Member of Reform Club, American Geographical Society, 
Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural 

At the time of his death the Weekly Underwriter said editorially : 

"The life-record of our friend and associate, who died this week, 
appears on another page. It is full of the evidences of , high principle, 
noble endeavor and the achievement of purpose. Mr. Mack's 
methods were quiet, but what he aimed to do he followed with per- 
sistence, and generally accomplished. We believe that no man in 
our vocation was more liked and respected by those whom he had to 
meet in business. The letters which have spontaneously come to us 
from prominent underwriters, deploring Mr. Mack's untimely death, 
show that he was indeed to them, as he must have been to all, 
persona grata. Further, no man could ever justly say that he had

done him wrong ; very many could say, as did the citizens of the 
town whose good order and clean politics he defended, as an editor, 
with his life at stake, that his career was a benefaction. To those 
who were nearer his service was a long blessing. Measured by these 
standards Mr. Mack's life was a success and an example. It can be 
summed up — the life of an earnest, manly. Christian gentleman." 

The same paper in another column said : 

"John Warren Mack died at his home, 471 Lenox avenue, in 
this city, early on Sunday morning, after an illness from typhoid 
fever of nearlv seven weeks. His last appearance in this office was 
on Wednesday, October 10, when he attended to his usual duties, 
although he was already suffering from the first effects of his malady. 
It was a serious case from the beginning, and its progress was 
watched with much anxiety by his family and friends, and when the 
fever had run its course it left him too weak to rally. All that the 
best medical skill and the attentions of a devoted wife and children 
could do were of no avail. 

"Mr. Mack came from sturdy old New England stock, and was 
born at Bath, Steuben County, N. Y., March 11, 1848. His boyhood 
education was principally obtained at the Haverling Union School, 
at Bath, where he was prepared for college. He entered Cornell 
University in his twentieth year and was graduated with the class of 
1872, taking the degree of ' Bachelor of Science. Although his 
natural bent was for journalism, and his first venture in that direction 
was a brief experience at the case, the early years of his life after 
leaving the university were devoted to education. He had a taste 
for the acquirement of languages and became a proficient French, 
German and Italian scholar. These languages and the higher 
mathematics he taught at the Ithaca Academy and subsequently at 
the Delaware Literary Institute. He was also for some time princi- 
pal of the North Cohocton public school. 

"The entry of Mr. Mack into the vocation of his choice was as 
editor of the Bayonne, N. J., Herald. This was about the year 1881.. 
In 1883 he removed to Hornellsville, N. Y., to accept the post of 
business manager of the Herald, and, with a short incursion into life 
insurance as the local agent of the New York Life insurance com- 
pany, he continued with that paper until 1889, being the last two

years its editor. While he was occupying that position it became 
his duty to attack the poUtical rascaUties then rife at Hornellsville, 
and his fearless course so exasperated the gang in power that his 
editorial room was entered one evening when he was at work and he 
was brutally beaten and injured severely. The indignation of the 
community over the assault and its approval of his conduct as a 
conscientious journalist more than compensated him for his suffering 
in its behalf. He never failed to put into practice his conception of 
what was right, no matter what might be the possible consequences 
that threatened. 

"His public career and his reputation as a careful and intelli- 
gent statistician led to his call to the service of the Government in 
the taking of the census of 1890. He was appointed to the division 
of insurance statistics, acting as chief under the direction of Special 
Agent Charles A. Jenney. In 1S94, when the census work was com- 
pleted, Mr. Mack accepted an offer to join the staff of The Weekly 
Underwriter, and became its outside business representative. In 
that capacity he was known to and highly respected by underwriters 
throughout the United States. He was a director and the secretary 
of the corporation by which the paper is published. 

"Mr. Mack was an unobtrusive professor of reUgion, and was 
from early manhood a member of the Presbyterian communion. On 
becoming a resident of the city of New York, in 1894, he connected 
himself with the Harlem Presbyterian Church, and at the time of his 
death was its senior elder. His strong business sense was of great 
value in the management of its secular affairs. In this beautiful 
church edifice the funeral services were held on last Tuesday even- 
ing. They were opened by the present pastor, and the funeral 
sermon was preached by his old pastor and friend, who was in charge 
when he became a member, and who paid a just and eloquent tribute 
to Mr. Mack's qualities as a man and a Christian." 

From the numerous tributes to Mr. Mack by his brethren of the 
insurance press, the following have been selected as expressive of 
their sense of the loss which has fallen on the profession and the 
community by his death : 

. From the Insurance Age : 
"As we go to press we learn of the death, after a lingering ill- 

Sixth Generation, 461 

ness, of John W. Mack, of The Weekly Underwriter. In this brief 
space we can only add our small tribute to the testimonials which all 
who knew him are ready to pay to the splendid character and sub- 
stantial worth of this Nature's nobleman who has just passed on. As. 
Ave lay him to rest, let it not be only with brimming eye and breaking 
heart, but also with joy at the remembrance of an upright and spot- 
less Hfe, over which the King of Terrors can never wholly triumph.'* 

From The Chronicle : 

"He was a gentleman, was John W, Mack, a Christian gentle- 
, man, and a newspaper man of thorough training, rare attainments 
and highest class. He was one of those men whose presence com- 
manded respect and consideration, because those whom he met in 
social or business intercourse recognized instinctively a nature of 
fine instincts and high ideals coupled with good taste and common 
sense. His death leaves a distinct gap in this profession, which 
needs just such men as he. Aside from our sense of personal loss 
at the death of a friend, we join with the fraternity in mourning the 
loss of a sterling character," 

From The Record : 

"He was a man of high character and fine attainments, a grad- 
uate of Cornell University ; and although of a retiring disposition he 
made and kept a host of warm friends among insurance men and 
his journalistic associates," 

From the Philadelphia Intelligencer : 

"John W. Mack was a true gentleman. He was also a trained 
and capable newspaper man who understood his work well and did 
it quietly but effectively. The one thing, however, that always 
impressed you when you met Mr. Mack for the first time, and which 
grew on you the more times you met him, was that he was a gentle- 
man. Clean cut, positive as to his convictions, but kindly and 
courteous in his expression of his views and in his relations to those 
about him." 

From Thrift : 

"The news of the death of Mr. John W. Mack, the secretary of 
the Underwriter Printing and Publishing Company, on the 25th 

462 History of the Mack Family. 

inst., was received with general regret by his co-workers in insurance 
journalism, and has called forth many tributes to Mr. Mack's memory 
from prominent life and fire underwriters." 

From the Insurance Advocate : 

"A scholarly and high minded gentleman, Mr. Mack was a 
credit to insurance journalism and gained the high respect of all with 
whom he had dealings." 

From The Surveyor : 

"While the deceased was, perhaps, not as widely known as 
some others, because of his retiring disposition, he was in his per- 
sonal character one of the shining lights of the business of insurance 
journalism. His death came as a shock to many who esteemed him 
greatly for his gentle sincerity and the abilities that his modesty 
could not conceal." 

From Views : 

"The death of Mr. John Warren Mack, secretary of the Under- 
writer Printing and Publishing Company, New York, who succumbed 
to typhoid fever the morning of the 25th ult., is deeply deplored in 
insurance circles. The practice of uniform courtesy and nicety to 
his colleagues, his unobtrusive nature and gentle manner, won their 
esteem and friendship. The Weekly Underwriter has, indeed, lost a 
good staff, and insurance journalism a conscientious and talented co- 

From the Insurance Monitor : 

"Insurance journalism lost an honored representative in Mr. J. 
W. Mack, who died on November 25 at his home in New York. Mr. 
Mack became connected with The Weekly Underwriter in 1894. 
Prior to that connection, he had been engaged in journalism for 
many years. He was an expert statistician, and was employed by 
the Government in the taking of the census of 1890, under Mr. 
Charles A. Jenny. Mr. Mack had the respect and esteem of all with 
whom he came in contact, and his untimely death is mourned by 
many friends." 

Sixth Generation. 463 

From the Insurance Herald : 

"Mr. Mack had been with The Weekly Underwriter since 1894 
and has contributed to some of the most important features of its 
work. He was a graduate of Cornell University and had been 
successively printer, teacher and principal of schools, life insurance 
agent, editor and business manager of journals in Bayonne, N. J., 
and Hornellsville, N. Y., and special insurance census supervisor of 
the Government from 1890 to 1894, previous to his connection with 
The Weekly Underwriter. Mr. Mack was in the prime of life, aged 
tifty-two, and will be greatly missed and deeply mourned." 

From The Vigilant : 

"Mr. Mack was able and conscientious ; everything he undertook 
to do he did well. He was always a gentleman, a good citizen and 
a loyal endeavorer for righteousness." 

From The Standard : 

"Few men will be more genuinely missed from the ranks of 
insurance journalism than John Warren Mack, of The Weekly 
Underwriter, New York, who died on Sunday of typhoid fever. A 
man of wide information, a skilled linguist, a gentleman always, and 
an enthusiast in his profession, of which he was a modest and yet 
conspicuous ornament, his loss in the midst of a successful and 
honorable career will be deeply deplored in journalistic and insurance 
circles, in which he was highly and deservedly esteemed. * * 
Mr. Mack's journalistic work was of the highest order — accurate, 
polished, and always honest. His loss will be felt especially by his 
colleagues on The Weekly Underwriter, who were greatly attached 
to him for his solid and endearing qualities. The funeral services 
were held in the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York, 
on Tuesday evening, and were attended by a large number of 
insurance journalists and insurance men. At a meeting of insurance 
journalists in the office of C. J. Smith, Mutual Life Building, on 
Tuesday, appropriate resolutions were adopted."

Wand of Buffalo, N. Y. Principal of High School and Superin- 
tendent of Schools, Bedford, Iowa, 188 1-4. Lawyer. Director in 
the Bank of Niagara, Bank of Suspension Bridge, Power City Bank 
and Niagara County Savings Bank of Niagara Falls, N. Y. 

Men of New York (1898) says of him : 

"Eugene Gary, prominent in the legal and political circles of 
Niagara Falls, was born in Dunkirk, N. Y., somewhat less than forty 
years ago. After attending the public schools of his native place, he 
obtained higher instruction at Cornell University, graduating thence 
in 1878 with the degree of B. S. He then devoted a year to business 
in his father's hardware store at Dunkirk, and the winter of 1879-80 
he passed as principal of a school at Sinclairville, Chautauqua 
County, N. Y. 

"By this time Mr. Cary had decided to make the practice of law 
his life-work. Entering the office of Judge Thomas P. Grosvenor, 
therefore, at Dunkirk, he applied himself with characteristic zeal to 
the task of mastering legal science. He continued his reading until 
August, 1 88 1, when the position of Superintendent of Schools at 

478 History of the Mack Family. 

Bedford, Iowa, was offered to him. He accepted this opportunity, 
and managed the public schools of Bedford with marked efificiency 
for the next three years. He found a little time for his law studies 
during these years in the West, and had no difficulty in passing the 
bar examinations at Buffalo in June, 1884. 

"From November, 1884, until October of the next year, Mr, 
Gary practiced law at Forestville, near Dunkirk, in partnership with 
Daniel Sherman. Niagara Falls was already beginning to give 
promise of its later industrial supremacy, and Mr. Gary resolved to 
settle there. Associating himself, accordingly, with Henry G. Tucker, 
he practiced at the Falls in the firm of Tucker & Gary from October, 
1885, until May, 1887. For the next six years he carried on a large 
practice without partnership assistance. Since May i, 1893, he has 
been associated with William G. Wallace in the well-known firm of 
Gary & Wallace. He has become a familiar figure in the Gourts of 
Niagara Gounty, and is widely known as an able and trustworthy 
attorney. ' 

"Outside of his professional work Mr. Gary has been especially 
interested in politics. He was a member of the executive committee 
of the Ghautauqua Gounty Republican Gommittee in 1884. In the 
fall of that year he edited the political columns of a Dunkirk news- 
paper. Since going to Niagara Falls he has been on the Republican 
Gity Gommittee several times, and in the important campaign of 1896 
he was chairman of that committee. He was one of the Alternate 
Delegates to the Republican National Gonvention at St. Louis in the 
same year. He has been a delegate to every Republican judiciary 
convention in his district for the last ten years, and was chairman of 
the convention in 1895. Notwithstanding his activity and import- 
ance in the counsels of the Republican party, he has never cared to 
hold public office. He has, however, been a member of the Niagara 
Falls Board of Education since March, 1896. 

"Mr. Gary has been somewhat active in the business life of 
Niagara Falls as well as in law and politics. He holds directorates 
in Power Gity Bank, and in the Bank of Niagara ; and acts as 
attorney for these institutions, and for the Bank of Suspension Bridge. 
He is a Trustee of the Niagara Gounty Savings Bank, and President 
■of the Niagara Falls Memorial Hospital."

From Spencer (Iowa) News, Feb. 8, 1894: 

■"A biographical sketch of Mrs. E. B. Higley read at the Farmers' 
Institute last' week. 

"It seems fitting that we turn aside, for a few moments, from the 
regular business of the day and give our attention for the intervals to 
a review of the life and works of one whom every person here must 
remember with deepest respect as well as with gratitude for the work 
done in this institution, especially in advancing the work of the 
special department now under discussion. 

"Miss Julia M. Clark was a native of Windham, Ohio. Born on 
a midsummer day when the world was at its loveliest, her infant eyes 
opened on a world of flowers and all her life she has held no task 
sweeter than the cultivation and study of these beautiful gifts from an 
all-wise and good Creator. She was educated at the academy of her 
native town and took the preparatory course of Oberlin College, but 
owing to financial reverses in her father's family she was compelled 
to give up her cherished dream of college life and bravely took up the 
task of teaching to assist in educating the young brothers and sisters, 
of which there were six, she being the eldest. 

"Always a close and thorough student, her studies did not end 
with her school days but have continued through all her useful and 
busy life. In later years she took up the Chautauqua work and com- 
pleted the four years' course of reading in 1882, just before removing 
to Iowa, but ever since the organization of a C. L. S. C. circle in 
Spencer she has been an active and useful member, and held a place 
of honor in the hearts of all her associates. 

"In 1853 she was married to Edward B. Higley, and for forty 
years she has shared all his joys and sorrows. She was always ready 
to give her influence in the cause of temperance. In the dark days 
of our republic when war and bloodshed were over the land, her

time, work and influence were given to aid the national cause, and 
being the possessor of a remarkably rich contralto voice she was the 
leading member of a musical club which gave from time to time 
excellent concerts for the purpose of raising funds to supply the neces- 
sary help to soldiers in field and hospital. She was a devoted Chris- 
tian and a member of the Congregational church at Windham, from 
which she took letters to the same church in this place. She first 
came to Spencer in 1882 but went to Mason City the following year 
and remained until 1886, since which time her home has been in 

"Active in charities both in public and private, her hand was 
ready and quick to aid any one in distress. Practical in all things if 
she had work to do she gave it where the remuneration would supply 
the greatest need. 

"She gave her aid to every good cause for the advancement of 
her fellow beings intellectually, financially or socially, and was quick 
to see and advocate any measure to raise the standard of life in those 
around her. Many will remember the effort put forth some years 
ago for purchasing and beautifying a portion of land for a city park. 
Her efforts were not crowned with success as they deserved, but no 
doubt did some good as no good work is ever entirely lost. 

"With eyes to see and an intellect to appreciate the beautiful in 
nature and art her most enthusiastic work was given in the line of 
horticulture and floriculture. She spared no pains to make success- 
ful any movement for their advancement. She was a member of the 
Portage county horticultural society in Ohio, and did efficient service 
in that body for years before coming to Iowa. She has been a mem- 
ber of the State horticultural society of Iowa since 1884, and her 
name has been held in honor as one of the capable workers. Being 
a learned and skillful botanist she was at one time employed to make 
a sectional report of the flora of northwestern Iowa by the state 
organization. You all know what her work in this society has been. 
From its earliest organization she has been its most faithful advocate. 
With characteristic independence she attended the first session with 
no other woman to support her, and from that time until she was 
called away she has been on the most important committees in the

18500. John Mack. 11800. He did not marry a second 
time. It is thought that this family dropped their original names, 
retaining the prefix only, thereby being better able to escape perse- 
cution on account of their religious belief. It is said that part of 
their coat-of-arms was a boar's head. The Scotch families of Mc- 
Dougal and McTavish have as parts of their coats-of-arms a boar's 
head erased. One branch of the family thinks that the original name 
was McDermon. He was the original and only early settler of that 
name in Conn, and the ancestor of all the early Macks of that state.
