Orator and Philanthropist.
! 1 1ST* )RY ( )F ( IRDER.
This Order was founded at Mobile, Ala., in [895, and, as
far as 1 am aware, is the only one' named for the illustrious
general and statesman, George Washington. < )ur members
having become separated, the < )rder remained in abeyance
when an attempt was made by Mr. Jorn Eyerman, of
Easton, Pa., and myself, to revive the Order. The
former having a die cast for the beautiful insignia now
adopted by us, and also some handsome invitations issued,
containing upon their face the necessary qualifications of
admittance to the < )rder. Nothing further was done until i
became permanently settled in this city, when I determined
to reorganize the < )rder, and with the assistance of certain
gentlemen, we placed it upon a firm basis, and on May 13.
1908. formally instituted the ( )rder and received a Charter for
the same on June 11, 1908, so that we have the satisfaction
of knowing that The ( )rder of Washington is now firmly
established, and as a qualification for membership requires
that the ancestor must have arrived in America before 1750,
have been a landowner or founder of a town, held some of-

and had a descendant who aided the Colonies in attaining then-

THE ORDER OF WASHINGTON.
Whereas, It should be the duty of all those of illustrious
lineage to preserve intact the history and traditions relating
to the foundation of their country, and to endeavor to pro-
mote peace, happiness, and the general welfare of mankind,
therefore, we, the founders of this Order, should use our in-
fluence to see that our institutions are kept intact and free
from pernicious influences and that freedom and liberty be
promoted: Therefore, we whose names are subjoined do now
institute an order of patriotism and chivalry to be known as
The Order of Washington.
In order to become a member of this Order the ancestor
must have arrived in America prior to 1750, have been a land-
owner or a founder of a town, and have held some official,
military (naval) or ministerial position in Colonial days, and
also had a male descendant who assisted the Colonies in attain-
ing their independence.
In order to explain the above the following clause is offered:
The candidate to become a Companion in this Order must have
descended in the male or female line from a male ancestor who
assisted the Colonies in attaining their independence, and the revo-
lutionary ancestor must have descended in the cBrect male line from
an ancestor who was in the Colonies prior to 1750 and who or whose
son held at some time an official position during the Colonial period,
or, was a founder of a town, or, was in the military or naval service,
or was a minister of the Gospel.

Arthur Adams, Professor of English in Trinity College,
Hartford, Connecticut, was horn at Pleasantvidle, New Jersey,
May 12. [881, on the homestead which had been in the family
for over two hundred years. I lis parents were James R. and
Marietta (English) Adams. Professor Adams began his edu-
cation in the public schools of his native town, but at the age of
twelve years, owing to the death of his father, the family moved
to Ocean City, Xew Jersey, where he continued his education.
Here he graduated from the public school, thus preparing, with
the help of a private tutor, for College. In September of 1898
he entered Rutgers College, New Brunswick, New Jersey,
from which institution he was graduated B. A. in the Class of
After graduation from College, Professor Adams spent the
next succeeding three years in the graduate study of English at
Yale University, receiving the degree of M. A. in 1903 and of
Ph. D. in 1905. In September, 1905, he began his career as a
teacher as an Instructor in English in the University of Colo-
rado. The next year, he became an Assistant Professor of
English in Trinity College. In 1908 he was made Associate
Professor, and in iqii Professor, becoming Head of the De-
partment in 19 1 4.
Professor Adams is also in Priest's Orders in the Episcopal
Church, having been ordained to the Priesthood by Bishop
Brewster of Connecticut, May 13, 1909, at Windsor, Connecti-
cut. He received the degree of B. D. from the Berkeley
Divinity School in 19 10.
Professor Adams has written books and articles for period-
icals on subjects related to his chosen field of scholarly activity.
He is also a competent genealogist, and has published articles
in the New England Hist, and Gen. Register, the New York
Gen. and Biog. Record, and the Pennsylvania Magazine
of History and Biography, as well as several genealogical

pamphlets. He is a member of various learned societies, such
as the American Philological Association and the Modern Lan-
guage Association of America ; of several historical societies ;
of many social clubs and societies ; and of these patriotic
societies — the Order of Washington, the Colonial Order of the
White Crane, the National Genealogical Society, the Swedish
Colonial Society, the Order of Founders and Patriots, and the
Society of Colonial Wars. Also member of Phi Beta Kappa
Society, and of the Imperial Order of the Yellow Rose; mem-
ber Society Scions of Colonial Cavaliers and Knights of the
June 22, 1910, Professor Adams was married to Miss Emma
G. Steelman of Ocean City, New Jersey, daughter of Hiram
and Mary Jane (Jackaway) Steelman. A daughter, Esther
Steelman Adams, was born to them December 30, 19 12. The
Steelman family is one of the oldest and best known of South-
ern New Jersey. The progenitor was James Steelman, Gentle-
man, probably of Swedish origin, who appeared in Great Egg
Harbor, Gloucester County, New Jersey, as early as 1693.
Among the distinguished families of New Jersey from whom
Mrs. Adams claims descent may be mentioned the Somers,
Conover, Edwards, Ingersoll, and Barrett families. She also
is an enthusiastic and able genealogist, having collected and ar-
ranged the data for a genealogy of the descendants of James
Steelman, and much material relating to other families. Mrs.
Adams is a member of the Society of the Colonial Dames of
New Jersey and of the Society of the U. S. Daughters of 1812.
The progenitor of the Adams family to which Professor
Adams belongs was Jeremy Adams, who came, it is supposed,
from Essex County, England, to Cambridge, Massachusetts,
in 1632. He was an original proprietor of Hartford, Con
necticut, where he was prominent, serving under Captain
Mason against the Indians and engaging in the grain trade.
He was proprietor of the Inn for many years. After his death
the Inn was kept by Lieutenant Zachary Sanford, who had mar-
ried his granddaughter, and it was from this Inn, where the
General Court met, that the famous Connecticut Charter was

stoLn and hidden in the equally Famous Charter < >ak. Jeremy
Adams was the first settler and the original proprietor <>\ the
town of Colchester, Connecticut, lie died August 11, [683.
The line of descent is Jeremy, John, Jonathan (of Huntington,
Long" island, and Great Egg Harbor, New Jersey), John.
John, Daniel, and James l\. John, the great grandfather of
Professor Adams, served during the Revolution as an Ensign
in the Gloucester County, XX \\ Jersey militia, and his father i 1
the 15th Xew Jersey Volunteers during the Civil War. All
the Adams family have served well their day and generation.
Professor Adams' mother, Marietta English, was a descend-
ant of Joseph English, who settled in Burlington, Xew Jersey.
in [678, coming from Nailsworth, Gloucester County, England.
John, son of Joseph, settled at English Creek, Gloucester
County, X T ew Jersey, in 1714. owning extensive tracts of tim-
ber land and sawmills. He was a Justice of the County Court
for many years. Joseph, son of John, served as a private in
the New Jersey militia during the Revolution. The Lake and the
Collins families are among the prominent connections of the
English family. He also* descends from the Springer family,
through which he becomes a member of the Imperial Order of
the Yellow Rose.
Professor Adams' great grandmother was Margaret Gar-
wood, wife of Ensign John Adams. The Garwood family was of
Burlington County. New Jersey, and Margaret Garwood num-
bered among her ancestors representatives of many of the best
Quaker families of West Jersey. Among her ancestors may be
mentioned Richard Hancock of Salem, New Jersey, who came
over with Fenwick, in 1075, and who served as Surveyor Gen-
eral, member of the West Jersey Assembly in 1682, as Judge,
etc. ; Henrv Ballenger, member of the West Jersey Assembly
in 1697; Walter Humphreys; George Elkinton, etc.. all early
settlers and proprietors of W r est Jersey.
Professor Adams' favorite avocation is the study of history
and genealogy, and he takes pride in his connection with patri
otic, hereditary, and historical societies.

March 7, 1800. He was a cousin, and nephew by marriage of
General George Washington and aid on his staff: and later was
Colonel of a regiment equipped entirely from bis private purse.
His ancestor. Colonel William Ball, was a Colonial officer

master Ball of the Navy was a genial, courteous Virginia
gentleman, and this Order has met a great loss in his death.
We see him descended from the ancient families in direct

of Chaplain Bayard's grandfather has now been given we will
now give his paternal line. Dr. Nicholas S. Bayard was one ol
the sons of the distinguished Col. John Bayard of the Revolu-
tionary War, who held so many positions of prominence. He
married Margaret McCulloch, dan. of Andrew McCulloch and
Jane Hodge. Col. John Bayard was the son of James Bayard
and Mary Asheton, and the latter James Bayard was the son
of Samuel Bayard, born New Amsterdam, 1675, son of Petrus
Bayard, Deacon in Dutch Church and Alderman in New Yoik,
who married, 1674, Blandina Kierstede, daughter of Surgeon
Hans Kierstede. Petrus Bayard was the brother of the dis-
tinguished Col. Nicholas Bayard, one of the principal per-
sonages in early New York history, and of Catharine Bayard
and Balthazer Bayard, the children of Samuel Bayard and
Ann Stuyvesant. We thus see that Chaplain George Liv-

Nicholas and Petrus Bayard, which lines converge upon the
marriage of Dr. Nicholas S. Bayard, who married his cousin.

William Berrien Burroughs, M. D., was born April 7th,
1842, at Savannah, Georgia. The history of the family goes
44 the lineage book.
back to the Elizabethan days of England's glorious marine
exploits. An old record names Captain Stephen Burroughs
as captain of one of three vessels which attempted to reach
China by way of Nova Zembla in 1553. Captain Burroughs
published a book of his adventures, during which he reached
" farthest north " at that time (seventy degrees and three
minutes), and was "the first who observed the declination of
the magnetic needle." In old books of heraldry is described th:
Burroughs' coat of arms, and many other records indicate the
prominence of the name in England during the sixteenth and
seventeenth centuries. Sir John Burroughs, who was knighted
in 1624, was an attendant and court official to King Charles I.
His descendants have been prominent in England from that
time to this, one of them having been in recent years head of
the largest drug house in the world at London.
The founder of the family in America was John Burroughs,
who was born in Dorsetshire, England, in 1617, and came to
America to Salem, Massachusetts, about 1642. As an adher-
ent of Charles I, he had been one of those who fled from
England at the time to escape the religious and political perse-
cution after the dissolution of the long parliament of which he
had been a member. Soon after arriving in this country, he
located at Long Island, and was one of the original settlers of
Middleburg, in 1652, where he paid his share of the Indian rate.
Being a leading man and skillful penman, he served as town
clerk and clerk of court, and made the first map of Newtown.
He was one o>f the seven patentees of Newtown, in 1666, and
continued in office as town clerk until his death, when his oldest
son succeeded him to that office. His children, grand-
children and great grand children moved to New York, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
Fourth in descent from this noted founder of the family in
America was Benjamin Burroughs, grandfather of Dr. Bur-
roughs. Benjamin Burroughs was born on Long Island at
Newtown, March 31st, 1779, and died at Savannah, Georgia,
April 14th, 1837. In T 795 ne brought the name south to Au-

County, Ga., on September 15, [854, and is the son of Dr.
William Gaston Bulloch and Mary Eliza Adams Lewis and
brother of Dr. J. G. B. Bulloch. After attending school in
Savannah, his home, he went to Yorkville Military School,
Yorkville, South Carolina, thence to the University of the
South, Sewanee, Tenn., thence to the University of Virginia,
where he graduated in applied mathematics. After graduation
he went on a railroad survey in South Carolina, thence back-
to Savannah. Besides being in the office of several architects,
notably with that prominent one, G. E. Harney, for five years
in New York City, N. Y., and also as draughtsman with the
Plant System of Railroads, he at last entered into the employ
of the Atlantic Coast Line and now lives in Wilmington, N. C.
John D. Campbell, banker, born in Cleveland, Ohio, July
27, 1859, son of James B. Campbell and Margaret L. Camp-
bell, son of Thomas Campbell and Mary Beelman, son of
Thomas Campbell and Isabella Lusk Campbell, son of John
Campbell, who served during the French and Indian War.
His son, Thomas, was Captain Pennsylvania Revolutionary
War; member Society Cincinnati, &c.
Seth Bunker Capp, of Philadelphia and Devon, Pa., was
born in Philadelphia May 23rd, 1875. He is the son of
62 THE LINEAGE BOOK.
William Musser Capp, M. D., and his wife Ida Estelle Stitt
of Philadelphia, residence Devon, Pa.; a sister (Estelle) Mrs.
Frederick Jost, and her son, Gordon Jost, all born in Phila-
delphia and reside there. Mr. Capp was educated at Delancey
School, Philadelphia, Class of 1893. He is a member of Old
Christ Episcopal Church, where is preserved the pew which
was occupied by Washington and his family when Philadelphia
was the National Capital. Mr. Capp's first English Ancestor
in America was John Howland, a Mayflower passenger. He
likewise descends from Henry de Bohun, Earl of Hereford,
one of the English Magna Charta Barons. Mr. Capp's French
descent is from the Bunkers of Bunker Hill, George Bunker,
1632, a son of William (Bon Coeur) a French Huguenot.
Through Major James Stitt he claims Scotch-Irish descent.
James Stitt, the first in America, was a Major in the English
army, but owing to his sympathy with the Cause, afterwards
represented by the unfortunate Emmett, he sailed with two
others in his own sloop about 1770 and settled finally at Pitts-
town, N. Y. The Capp family were Scottish and trace their
origin and coat of arms back to the days of Bruce. Owing to
religious differences they fled to the Palatinate and became
Germanized, and emigrated with the great number of Germans
who reached this country about 1732, and first went to New
York, thence to Pennsylvania, preferring the peacful methods
of William Penn.
Mr. Capp has lived abroad for a number of years, calling
Paris, France, his home. Quite recently he has been in the
West; always, however, retaining a residence and interest in
Philadelphia. Mr. Capp has become an expert in antiques
and possesses for his own pleasure a very worthy collection.
He has always been deeply interested in the advancement of
Art, Culture and Science. The attached list of Memberships
will show far better than any words his comprehensive interest
and active participation in promoting these objects.

Edmond Chaundelor (as the name was then spelled) came to
this country in 1630 with his wife and seven children. He
settled in Duxbury, Mass. He held many offices of importance
and trust in the Plymouth Colony, being the first to represent
the town of Duxburg as Deputy at the general Court, later
having as colleagues Jonathan Brewster and John Alden.
He was one of the original proprietors of the town of Bridge-
water, Mass. His youngest son, Joseph, married Nancy, and
their youngest son, Joseph, Jr. (Joseph Edmond), married
In 1728 they moved from Duxbury to North Yarmouth S
(now Maine), of which Joseph, Jr., was one of the original
proprietors. Their oldest son, Philip (Jos. 3, Jr., Jos. 2, Ed-
mond) married Rebecca Phillips and remained on the home
farm when his father and family moved to Maine. The third
son of Philip and Rebecca Chandler, Peleg (Philip Jos. 3, Jr.,
Jos. Edmond) went to live with his grandparents in North Yar-
mouth at an early age. He became interested in the young
town of New Gloucester and then in 1762 he erected a house.
He married his second cousin, Sarah Winslow. He was a
man of more than average intelligence, of honor and integrity,
of sagacity and fine business ability, as is evidenced by the high
position he took in town and church affairs. He had vast
real estate holdings. He often represented his district in the
General Court in Boston.
Sarah Winslow, by her paternal grandmother, was a
descendant (great, great, great granddaughter) of Mr. Rich-
ard Warren, the twelfth signer of the Compact or Constitu-.
tion of Government drawn up by the Pilgrims on board the
Mayflower, November 11, 16:0. He, Mr. Richard Warren, was

He married in 1797 Esther, the third daughter of Col.
Isaac and Salome (Merrill) Parsons, of New Gloucester. In
1817 he was made a Judge for the Maine Circuit, which office
he filled with distinction until his removal to Bangor, in 1826.
It is probable that few men in New England enjoyed so illus-
trious a coterie of friends as did Judge Chandler. By ties of
blood or marriage he was connected with the Warrens, Win -

in Bansfor. He was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in
1837, and that same year married Martha Ann Bush Cleave-

piled The American Criminal Trials, and was first to intro-
duce the report of Court proceedings in the daily morning
papers. In the development of that section of the city of Boston
known as the Back Bay, he was one of the originators and pro-
moters. But for the indomitable perseverance of Peleg Whit-
man Chandler the city of Boston might never have had the
beautiful Public Gardens. While serving as City Solicitor
the question arose as to the taking of that land for such a pur-
pose, and it seemed doomied when Mr. Chandler called and
addressed Public Meetings, and at his own expense caused flyer?
to be sent out. The result every resident and visitor looks
upon with pride and satisfaction. He died in 1889 at his home
on Beacon Street, Boston, survived by three children, Ellen M.,

Sarah Vinson (later spelled Vincent), of Gloucester. William
Vinson was the son of Sir Francis Vinson, of Stoke D'Au-

of Sir Francis Poulet. She was maid of honor to Queen
Ann?, wife of James I. P>esides the daughter, Sarah, the wife

they were the grandparents of William Ellery, one of the
signers of the Declaration of Independence; and great, great,
grandparents of the distinguished theologian, William Ellery
On February 3, 1704, Ebenezar Parsons married Lydia, the
daughter of William and Mary Brown Haskell, of Gloucester.
By this marriage were connected two of the wealthiest and
most influential families of Cape Ann. Mr. Haskell owned an
extensive grist and saw mill, as well as other valuable prop-
erty, where now stands the town of Rockport.
Ebenezar Parsons was, for a long time, one of the Selectmen
and Assessors of Gloucester, and a Deacon and Ruling Elder
in the First Church. His business was that of a trader, as
well as farmer, and today his descendants may be found car-
rying on business on the spot where, two centuries ago, he
amassed a fortune. One of his grandsons, Theophilus Par-
sens, Esq., became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of
Massachusetts and one of the most learned and eminent jurists
the State has ever known.

of Captain Thomas Burnham, of Ipswich. Their oldest child.

then known. His grandfather, Ebenezar Parsons, was one of
the sixty inhabitants of old Gloucester on Cape Ann, to whom a
large tract of land in that eastern country had been granted.
On February 27, 1738, the lots were drawn and it was voted
that the township be called "New Gloucester." In June, 1761,
Isaac Parsons, Jr., took passage in a sailing vessel for North
Yarmouth (now Maine), and traveled on foot over the "new
way" from Cousn's River to New Gloucester, determined to
learn for himself the possibilities of the young town.
He soon formed the opinion that it might be made a good
country by industry ; therefore the lot drawn by his grand-
father, Ebenezar, was purchased and deeded to him. At once
he commenced the erection of a frame house, the first in New
Gloucester, and which is standing today, in a good state of
When the Revolutionary War broke out, Isaac Parsons was
quick to take his place among the men to enlist, and served as
Captain and Colonel of the 4th Cumberland Company Regi-
ment, Massachusetts Militia, until its close. Colonel Parsons
was a man of great and good influence in his adopted town,
of strong intellect, independent in character, an original think-
er and progressive in his ideas, a gentleman of the old school,
very correct and precise, and extremely proud of his military
He often represented his district at the General Court in
Boston. He was one of the Overseers incorporated and pro-
vided by an "Act to establish a College in the town of Bruns-
wick, in the District of Maine, within the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts, to be known by the name of Bowdoin Col-
lege. He served upon the above-named Board nineteen
years, and it is chronicled that he "was most punctilious in his
attendance upon Board meetings," making his trips in his
Boston chaise drawn by a beautiful black stallion." It is ?•
well-authenticated fact that among the list of alumni of Bow-
doin are a greater number of his descendants or men con-
nected to him by ties of marriage than any other two men.

College! Colonel 1'arsons had learned the tanning business
from his father, and, quick to appreciate the need of such
in the "new country," he erected a mill on the small stream
flowing across his land. I le was the first to raise corn in the
now State of Maine. This he did upon "burnt land" having
by strict examination, found that such land became light and
mi re suitable for the roots of any vegetahle to penetrate in
quest of nourishment, and also had the benefit of alkaline
salts. He ever claimed that "the knowledge of his method of
raising corn proved a greater encouragement or inducement to
the settling of the State of Maine than any other one thins:
except the withdrawing of the Indians !"
There is in possession of one of his descendants the deed
of land of that section ( New Gloucester) given by the Indian
Sagamores and signed by the chiefs, Robin Hood, Duriquin
and Worumbo. It is, of course, timeworn and yellow, hut
the writing is still legible, and the marks of the Indians can
be distinctly made out.
Colonel Parsons also had a Justice's commission and for
many years was Deacon of the First Orthodox Church ; and
it is related that the selection of a title by which to address
the honored, learned and devout gentleman, often caused
much embarrassment. On November 21, 1765, Esquire Par-
sons married Salome, the daughter of Humphrey Merrill, of
Falmouth. To them were born eight children. Esther, the
third daughter, became the wife of Judge Peleg Chandler,
Jr., of New Gloucester. They were the great grandparents of

DR. M. F. CUTHBERT.
Dr. Middleton Fuller Cuthbert, one of the leading physicians
of Washington, was born in Philadelphia, where his father
was at the time pastor of a church. Upon the removal of
the family to Washiigton to live Mr. M. F. Cuthbert attended
what was then known as the Columbia College, now the
George Washington University, where he graduated in the
Academic course; then taking up the study of medicine,
graduating in that profession. Dr. Cuthbert comes of a long
line of distinguished ancestry and descends from such ancient
families as Cuthbert, Barons of Castle Hill, Scotland, the
Middletons, Barnwells, Draytons, Fullers and Dm Bose's and
Hazzards of South Carolina, the d'Antignacs of France and
Georgia, the Turpins and Ballards of Virginia and others. He
is the son of the late James Hazzard Cuthbert, D.D., of South
Carolina, and Julia Elizabeth Turpin, daughter of William
Henry Turpin and Marie Antoinette d'A'ntignac, descended of
the Baron d'Antignac. James Hazzard Cuthbert, D.D., was

The family of de Bonneville (the name is frequently written
Boniwell, de Bondeville, Bondeuile, Bonville, Bonavil, etc.), is
one of the oldest of the French Nobility. Their estates were
situated at Bonneville, Langres, Limoges and Rouen, Nor-
mandy, and date back to the earliest feudal days.
The first English de Bonneville of whom we have record
was Richard de Bondeville, who took part in the battle of
Hastings, 1066, under William the Conqueror, and his name
is inscribed in the famous Battle Abbey Roll. This de Bon-
neville was the progenitor of the British Families of this
In 1 165 the son of Robert de Bonaville held lands in York-
Liber Niger. "In 35 Henry III. William, son of Nicholas de
B nvile, having all the accoutrements prepared at the King's
charge solemnly received the honour of Knighthood on the
Festival of our Saviour's Nativity, the same year ; and, upon
his father's death in 49, Henry III had livery of his land, ly-
ing in Com. Somers" — Dugdale.
His successor was Nicholas, who died in 1204, and he was
followed by still another Nicholas, the latter taking part in
the Battle of Boroughbridge, 1322, then William, whom we
find as Sir William de Bonvill, Sheriff of Dorset and Somer-
set and some years later Devonshire. He had considerable
possessions in the West Country with his seat at Chuton—

Exeter he founded a hospital for twelve poor men and women.

soldier of renown in the French Wars, who inherited another
Somersetshire estate from his cousin, John de Bonavile, of
Meryat. He first took the field in the retinue of Thomas,
Duke of Clarence, under the victorious banner of Henry V ; then
as Seneschal of A,cquitaine, was retained to serve his succes-
sor with twenty men at arms and six hundred archers and
"merited so well for his services" was "fumimioned by Henry
VI to Parliment among the barons by the name of Lord Wil-
liam de Boneville of Chuton, honoured with the Order of the
Garter and enriched his fon by marrying him to the) only
daughter of Lord Harrington." A few years after, he was
constituted Constable of Exeter for life, and Lieutenant of
Lord de Boneville was a zealous partisan of the House of
York, and, like many other nobles who espoused this cause,
perished in the havoc of the ensuing Civil War and none among
all the fortunes that "withered with the White Rose" under-
went so cruel and instantaneous collapse. Within a space
of two months three generations of the de Bonevilles had been
swept away. His eldest son had miarried the heiress of Lord
Harrington and was the father of another William, who in-
herited his mother's barony and took to wife a daughter of
the Earl of Salisbury, Lady Catherine Nevill.
Both the son and grandson were slain before his eyes at
the Battle of Wakefield, December 31, 1460, and "was himself
taken prisoner at the fecond Battle of St. Alban." He had
been one of the Yorkish barons in whose custody Henry VI
had been placed when he was taken prisoner at Northampton,
thus incurring the bitter hostility of the Queen. "When the
rest of the Lords (who then also being there, were intrusted
with the like custody of that King) fled away to their party,
he would have withdrawn himself had not the King assured
him he should receive no bodily hurt." But though he sur-
rendered on the faith of the Royal Promise that his life should
be spared, it was not kept. "Such," continues Dugdale, "was
the indignation of the Queen towards him, that they rested not
until they had taken off his head," which occurred February
18, 1461. He was afterward, by act of Parliment, 1, Edward
IV, declared innocent.

The little great granddaughter Cecily was thus, by a "singu-
lar and almost unparrelleled course of descent" left to inherit
his great possessions. In her own right Baroness Boniville

ward l\ to the eldest son of his Queen; Thomas Grey, Mar-

1 ler second husband was Lord Henry Stafford, a younger son
of the second Duke of Buckingham, who was created Earl
of Wiltshire in 1:509, but by him left no issue.
The family had suffered an unprecedented series of mis-
fortunes, and the descendants of this famous Feudal Familv
seemed unable to once more place their star of ascendancy in
the enviable niche it had occupied through the achievements of
their progenitors. A number of the de Bonnevilles came to
America in the early part of the seventeenth century, settling
in Maryland and taking an active part in the Revolutionary
War. War of 1812 and Civil War.

The ( )'l)oherty family is descended fr< m Milesius, King
of Spain, through the branch of Heremon, eighth son of that
monarch. The O'Dochartaigh (the name is now written
( )'Doherty), were a powerful sept, a branch of the O'Donnells,
and became chiefs of Innishowen.
The founder of the family was Conal Gulban, ancestor of
the Northern Hy Nials, and son of Nial of the Nine Host-
ages, King of Ireland, A. D. 379. The ancient name was
O'Donnell and signifies "Grandson of the Destroyer." The
possessions of the sept were in the present counties of
Donegal and Mayo. O'Doherty, Chief of Srd Miodhair, is
mentioned in the Annals of the Four Masters, at A. 1 ).
1 197, as being chief of all Tyrconnell.
The O'Dohertys were prominent in resisting the encoach-
ments of the English and succeeded in maintaining their posi-
tion as chiefs of Innishowen and retaining their estates until
the reign of James the First, of England. During his reign
their lands were included in the six Ulster counties which that
Monarch confiscated from their owners to bestow on indigent

O'Doherty, a young chieftain of the family. He had suffered
spoilation of a part of hi-3 lands and had been charged with
rebellion by Sir George Paulett, the Governor of Derrv, who
publicly insulted him and struck O'Doherty in the face
O'Doherty at once raised the standard of rebellion and took
fearful and summary vengeance on his enemies. He marched

captured, and slew his enemy, Paulett, and other English no-
tables and then sacked the town.
Being joined by some of the other Northern Chieftains he
withstood the armies of England for five months and was
finally killed by a random shot under the Rock of Do on near
Kilmaereman. His lands were confiscated and given to Sir
Arthur Chichester, the Lord Deputy, and other English adven-
A contemporary writer describes the last of the O'Doherty
chieftains as "A man to be marked among a thousand, a man
of the loftiest and proudest bearing in Ulster; his Spanish hat
with the heron's plume was too often the terror of his enemies
and rallying point of his friends. He was chivalrous, faithful
in his engagements, firm and prompt in the execution of his
designs and implacable in his resentments.''
During the Penal Day priests were forbidden to celebrate
Mass under penalty of death. But the unconquerable spirit
of the O'Doherty asserted itself and Denis O'Doherty, great,
great grandfather of the subjects of this sketch, built the first
chapel in his district and known as Ardmore Chapel and which
stands to-day. In this period few cases of disputes were settled
by law but usually by arbitration, and he and another were
appointed as arbiters for that district. The O'Dohertys were
one of the first Catholic families to hold land in the North ox
Ireland after the Penal Days.

Ireland, who had been Speaker of Colonial Assemby of
Georgia and Secretary of Governor's Council before the Rev-

James Habersham, member of his Majesty's Council and acting
Governor of Georgia, who went to Georgia about the! year
1740. He married Mary Bolton, sister of Robert Bolton, of
Savannah, and daughter of Robert Bolton, of Philadelphia,
Pa., Church Warden of Christ Church Parish, of that city.
As the Bolton lineage has been fully given in the articles on
Bulloch, McBryde and others, we will proceed to give a short
sketch of the eminent Georgia family of Habersham, from
whom descends several of our companious of this Order. The
names of our members who descend from this old Georgia
family are the following : James Nephew King, and his brother,
C. W.King, of Rome, Ga., Col. G. Noble James, of Savannah,
Ga., and many others who are not companions of this Order.
The progenitor of this illustrious Georgia family was James
Habersham, who went from Beverly, Yorkshire, England, to
Georgia about the year 1740, and who took a very prominent
part in the affairs of the Province, occupying many positions of
prominence, such as Secretary of the Province, President of the
Upper House of Assembly or King's Council and acting Gov-
ernor of Georgia. He married Mary Bolton, daughter of
Robert Bolton, of Philadelphia, Pa., who was himself an Eng-
lishman from an ancient family and who, in Philadelphia held
several important positions in the Parish of Christ Church.
He married Ann Clay, widow, and daughter of Win-lock Curtis,
son of Hon. John Curtis, of Penns Council. Hon. James Haber-
sham and Mary Bolton had three sons : Hon. James Habersham,
who took part in the liberation of the Colonies, from whom
descend branches of the families of Elliott, Milledge, Barnwell
and others, and Lieut. Col. Joseph Habersham, of the Con-
tinental line, and Postmaster-General of the United States, and
Major John Habersham of the Continental line of Georgia
Brigade, who was President of Executive Council in Georgia.
From these three patriots descend many families well known
in the country.

successively filling the position of Yard Master, Ass't Train
Master, Special Agent, and Chief Clerk to Gen'l Supt., re-
signing to become Manager of the American Car Tracing and
Shipping Company, a private traffic organization. Removed
to Seattle in 1907 and worked jointly for the Northern Pacific
Railroad and the Pacific Northwest Demurrage Association,
resigning to accept the appointment of Traffic Manager for
the Alaska, Yukon, Pacific Exposition. At the close of the
Exposition, became Assistant Sales Agenfc for the Roslyn
Fuel Company, covering the States of Idaho, Oregon and
Mr. Hamilton was appointed to his present position Septem-
ber 1st, 191 1.
He is the son of Dr. J. M. Hamilton, of Virginia, and
Laura Louise Moser, daughter of Dr. Philip Moser, a man of
prominence in South Carolina, whose ancestor, Philip Moser,
came over in the ship Osgood to Pennsylvania and was quali-
fied in 1750.
Dr. Philip Moser married Charlotte Wilcox, daughter of
Samuel Wilcox and Anna Stobo. The family of Wilcox were
of New York.
Anna Stobo was one of the daughters of Richard Park
Stobo, who married on November 24, 1757. Mary Harvey.
He was the son of James Stobo, planter, son of Rev. Archi-
bald Stobo, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, June
25, 1697, anil who went as a minister in 1699 with the colo-

nists to settle at Darien on the Isthmus of Panama. As history
relates, this scheme of settlement was a failure due to a variety
of causes, and so the Colony, after many hardships, abandoned
the location. But few reached a place of safety, as the ship
Rising Sun upon which were embarked Rev. Archibald Stobo
and wife, seemed to have been saved by a miracle, for
only those who went up to Charleston, S. C. in a small boat
escaped destruction, as the ship Rising Sun was blown away
to sea, and all on board were lost.
The Rev. Archibald Stobo was one of the prominent men
in the Colony, not only being one of the founders of the first
Presbytery in the Province, but the minister of many churches.
His sons also occupied positions of prominence, for James
Stobo was elected as a member of the Commons House of
Assembly, January, 1728, but as he was a non-conformist, the
Council rejected him and others because he would not Con-
form. He was a landowner and planter in the Province.
His brother, Captain William Stobo, went with the South
Carolina Colonial Troops upon the famous expedition against
St. Augustine in 1740.
Later on we discover two more of the family, who were
defenders of their country against the Mother Country, for
in a list of American prisoners in Mill Prison at Plymouth,
we discover Lieutenant Jacob Stobo among the prisoners in
1782, and we find that James Stobo was a private in Captain
Charles Drayton's Company 26, August, 1775. See Vol. 10.

According to the record in the old German bible, now in
the possession of the widow of Philip Stobo Moser,
Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Philip and Sophia Moser were born in
Germany in 1735, which is to say the least, rather indefinite
as it is hardly probable that they were both born in the same
year, though not impossible. It makes no reference to the
wife's maiden name. However, through the kindness of Wm.
Henry Egle, M. D., who at the time he wrote (1897) was
State Librarian of Pennsylvania, John Philip Moser
arrived at Philadelphia on the ship "Osgood," Capt. William
Wilkie, from Rotterdam, and was qualified September 29th,
1750. In a latter from Rev. David Van Home, pastor
of the Race Street German Reformed Church (dated Phila-
delphia, September 4th, 1878), he states that the following
entries were found in the minute book of the consistory or
board of corporation :
"January nth, 1768. A meeting of the congregation was
held to elect trustees, elders and deacons. Philip Moser was
elected Elder by 39 votes."
"January 14th, 1771. Philip Moser was elected trustee by
"An estimate for building a new church was presented to
the congregation by the board of corporation, dated July 1st
1771, signed by Philip Moser as one of the trustees."
In the first census of the United States the names of
several Mosers in and around Philadelphia are found.
Xot many years ago a very large estate in Schuylkill County,
Penna., involving coal lands held by the Lehigh Valley Co., was
contested by the heirs of Peter, George and Burkhart Moser.
For some reason, no effort was made by the familv to look
ORDER <>l- WASH] NGTON. [31
into the matter, and it is not known what the outcome was, or
whether Philip Moser was related to this branch.
The children of Philip and Sophia Moser were:
r. Elizabeth Moser, born November 16, 1754, married
Jacob Bouvier, issue.
2. Catherine, born March 20, 1756, married Rev. Boehme,
afterward Chas. Lewis.

4. Varonica, born July, 1759, died January, 1760.
5. Francis, born July 27, 1760, married George P. Keyport.
6. Charlotte Sophia, born August 22, 1762, married ( 1 )
Moilihan, then (2) T. Brundige.
7. Mary, born January 12, 1764, died one year later.
8. Susan, born August, 1762, married Wm. Young.
9. Philip, born December 16, 1770, married first a Miss
Talcott, of South Carolina, by whom he had two daughters,
one of whom married a Mr. Green, the other married Dr.
Burgoyne. Philip Moser, after the death of his first wife,
married Charlotte Sophia Wilcox, daughter of Anna Stobo
and Samuel Wilcox, July 5, 1827, at Trinity Church, New
York, Rev. Benj. Onderdonk officiating.
10. Chas. Lewis, born June 25, 1772.
11. Samuel, born February 23, 1775.
12. Amelia, born January 29, 1778, married Wm. Mont-
gomery. With the exception of Philip Moser, the record
shows that all of these children were dead prior to March, 1830.
Philip Moser, 9th, child of Philip and Sophia Moser, was the
materal grandfather of F. M. Hamilton, she being the second
child of his marriage with Charlotte Sophia Wilcox, daughter
of Anna Stobo and Samuel Wilcox. He received a medical
diploma in 1788, showing his diligent attendance at three
courses of lectures, at Philadelphia ; this is signed by Wm.
Shippen. He evidently removed to South Carolina shortly
after receiving his degree, and remained there until the year
1831 or '32. fie took an active part in the affairs of South
Carolina. He was twice elected to the State Senate, and
passed a bill known as the "Moser Bill" prohibiting dueling.
He was a close personal friend of Governor Charles Pinckney.
13-2 THE IvINEAGE BOOK.
On July 28, 1798, he was appointed by Governor Pinckney
Surgeon to the Cavalry Regiment annexed to the Seventh
Brigade, where he served for seventeen years, resigning March
29, 1816. He took some part in the war of 1812. He was
also nominated for Governor of South Carolina, and was
defeated by only a trifling majority.
Having lost all papers relating to my father's family, my
information is very meagre and only extends to my Grand-
father Hamilton. I dimly remember my father telling me
that his father's family came from the North of Ireland, and
settled in Virginia in the very early days of the colony. My
grandfather's name was Charles Hamilton, and he married
Alice McGuffand or McGuffin ; they lived in Bath County,
Virginia. I cannot say with certainty how many children
they had, but remember :
1. Oliver Osborne.
3. Tames Melvin (my father).
In the record of officers and soldiers of the revolutionary
army, I notice several Hamiltons from Virginia named
Charles, James and Gawin, and I think it very probable that
some of them at least are my ancestors.
Dr. J. M. Hamilton, was educated at the Uni-
versity of \ irginia and received his medical diploma from
the University of Pennsylvania, at Philadelphia. He was an
ardent adherent of the Southern cause and was sadly perse-
cuted for aiding, both financially and morally, the secession.
An instance of the open defiance of my parents can be noted
in the naming of their fifth child, who was born in 1861, Jef-
ferson Davis. My father never recovered from the losses
sustained by the war and died comparatively poor.

nipped his legal aspirations in the hud and landed him in the
newspaper held. There he filled varied positions from "cub"
reporter to editorial writer (Detroit, Mich., Albany and Troy,
X. Y., and Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Inch), and was spe-
cial correspondent for Cincinnati, Chicago and New York
papers, and an occasional contributor to magazines.
Lured by the slogan "short hours and steady jobs," he en-
tered the L T . S. service via the Bureau of Pensions, in 1881 ;
and to the present time has personally demonstrated the truth
of that slogan.
His affiliations with societies and clubs has been varied, in-
cluding literary and social ones, and "frats" of school and col-
lege. Among these the National Geographic Society, Social
Science, Unity (Cincinnati and Washington), Monday Evening
Club, Short Story Club, Liberal Union, Men's Club (All Souls'
Church, Washington), The Ohio Society, Die Deutsche D'rama-
tische Gesellsohaft, and the patriotic societies Sons of the
American Revolution, and The Order of Washington. His
parents, Amos Prichard Holden and Mary J. (nee Goodman)
Holden, were Xew England born and bred, but became resi-
dents of Cincinnati soon after their marriage, living there the
rest of their lives. His father became a prominent merchant,
and conducted the largest export trade to China of American
ginseng in the entire country, beside doing an extensive mer-
cantile business throughout the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys.
His mother's relatives (the Goodmans) also settled in Cin-
cinnati and actively engaged in law, banking and insurance,
and were the principal organizers of the famous Ohio Trust
Company, the greatest financial institution west of the Alle-
ghenies up to the time of the disastrous panic of 1857. His
paternal ancestors were Danish, Norman and Saxon, the
family name first appearing as Hold (Danish, fort, or strong-
hold), then as Houldene (Norman-French) and finally as
Holden (Saxon). A branch of the family came to America
from Lincolnshire, England, toward the middle of the seven-

teenth century, settling- at or near the present town of Con-
cord (Massachusetts) ; afterward removing to New Ipswich,
N. H., where his father was born.
His maternal ancestors were Saxon, the name originally
"Gudemanne" becoming finally Goodman. They came from
Lincolnshire or Hertfordshire, England, and settled in Hart-
ford during the seventeenth century (the exact date not de-
termined, although one James Goodman was a signer of the
Mayflower "compact" and a passenger on that ship). In the
same line was Captain Joseph Wadsworth, who hid the precious
English charter in the oak tree, afterward known as the "Char-
ter Oak" of Hartford.
From Richard Goodman, a civic official and land owner of
Hartford, he derives membership in the Order of Washington,
and from his lineal descendant, Captain Moses Goodman, Sr.
(West Hartford), membership in the Society of the Sons of
tlie American Revolution. His son, Moses Goodman, Jr.,
was a colonel of infantry in the War of 1812.
Mr. Holden's wife, Mary Catherine (nee McCarthy) Holden,
is the daughter of the late Florence McCarthy and Elizabeth L.
(nee Ashton) McCarthy, of Washington, D. C. The Mc-
Carthys, a noted family in Ireland, included in their number
a long line of clergymen, writers, and teachers; among these
the famous author, historian, journalist, and Member of Par-
liament, the Honorable Justin McCarthy. The world-famed
"Blarney Castle" was built by the Clan McCarthy, and occu-
pied by them until deprived of all their estates, during Crom-
His wife's maternal ancestors were English and amongst
the early settlers in Plymouth Colony, and in the Revolutionary
War won distinction for patriotic services. Her grandmother,
Luanda Rebecca Lemon, was married to Robert Ashton,
grandson of Sir George Ashton, the absolute owner of the
town of Ashton, England.
Of Mr. Holden's father's family of four sons and four
daughters, two members only, beside himself, survive, his
elder brother now residing in Tryon, N. C, and his sister,

James M. Johnston is a descendant of Dr. Andrew Johnston,
who came to this country and settled in Savannah about 1750.
The latter's father was Surgeon James Johnston (born 1686)
of the British Navy, who married Jean Nisbet at Dumfries,
Scotland, on February 16th, 1722, and who belonged to a
cadet branch of the Scottish house of Johnston, Earls and
Marquises of Annandale. Several of the children of James
Johnston came over to America together. Of these the
eldest, Dr. Lewis Johnston, practiced medicine in Savannah, in
partnership with Dr. John Irvine, and was a member of His
Majesty's Council and also Chief Justice and Treasurer. His
descendants (the Almons, Ritchies and Johnstons) now live
in Halifax, Nova Scotia. One of them, Hon. James William
Johnston, was Speaker of the Provincial Assembly, and his
portrait still hangs in the Assembly hall. Another, Richie,
became Chief Justice. Dr. Andrew Johnston (1735-1801), the
next younger brother of Dr. Lewis Johnston, also practiced in
Savannah, except during the Revolutionary War, in which he
took no part, as all of the family were royalist in sentiment.
Both of these brothers were men of high education, grad-
uates of Edinburgh University, and both stood well in their
profession. Dr. Andrew Johnston's notebook, now in the
possession of Mr. James M. Johnston, is written wholly in
Latin and shows the writer to have been a man of wide read-
ing, both in Medicine and in general literature. Ob December

Depot, — one of the most actively busy places in the country
at that time. In 1899, Captain Littell was ordered to the
Philippines where he served with General MacArthur during
his Northern Campaign. This finished, Captain Ljttell was
made Chief Quartermaster of Southern Luzon, then assistant
to the Chief Quartermaster of the Philippines, and finally
Chief Quartermaster of Northern Luzon. After three years,
Captain Littell returned to the New York Depot, where he re-
mained but a short time, as he was called to the Quartermas-
ter-General's office in Washington, by General Humphrey, as
one of his assistants. He remained here five years, during
which time he received his Lieutenant-Colonelcy, and then
went to Governors Island, New York, as Chief Quartermaster
of the Division of the East, serving under both General Wood
and General Grant. From Governors Island, Colonel Littell
was ordered back to the Philippines, this time as Chief Quarter-
master of the Division of the Philippine Islands. Here he re-
mained for three vears, during: which time the consolidation of
the three large branches of the service, the Quartermaster,
Commissary, and Pay Departments, into the Quartermaster
Corps took place, and Colonel Littell was placed at its head.
Colonel Littell has now returned to Washington and is m
the office of the Quartermaster-General of the Army, General
Aleshire, as one of his assistants.

As the sketch of the Parker family, given in Vol. XVII]

Timothy Parker in the Revolutionary War, for the benefit
of our readers it is given here:

French and Indian Wars; but as captain, he was in command
of a company of minute-men in Sturbridge, Mass., whither
he removed from Roxbury before going to Holden. During
ten years of struggle, through which the people had passed
in striving for their rights, and had been driven step by
step from love and reverence for the English government,
to a stern belief that nothing short of a resort to arms won!'.
ever settle their troubles, and all citizens, even in remote
towns, were making preparations for a fearful combat in a
town meeting in Sturbridge, called to prepare for the emer-
gency, September 2$, 1774, they voted to provide a large
quantity of powder, 500 pounds of lead, and 500 flints ; at
the same meeting chose Captain Timothy Parker a delegate
to the Provincial Congress, to be convened at Concord, and
all men sixteen years old, and upward, were requested to
"assemble at the meeting-honse, with arms and ammunition,
to be reviewed."
It was an extraordinary scene ! The old men were formed
in companies of "alarm men" ; the young men into "minute-
men," ready to march at a moment's notice. Captain Parker
had command of one company. Captain Newel of another,
and Captain Crafts of another.
The instructions given the delegates were that "if the ad-
dress to His Majesty was not accepted, we think it highly
necessary to assume government, by and with the advice of
our sister colonies, as soon as may be."
Sturbridge had voted to raise 100 pounds for the repair
of roads, but they promptly reconsidered their country's op-
pression worse than bad roads.

HUGH VERNON WASHINGTON.
"We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart throbs,
He most lives who thinks most, feel the noblest, acts the best."
To die is the common lot. But the Angel of Death never
bent his wing to lift a knightlier soul to immortality than when
this ripe scholar, this loyal friend, this courtly gentleman, this
true humanitarian, passed at noon-tide from the press of battle
to find the benison of God's sweet peace, beside the still waters.
Hugh Vernon Washington was one of earth's noblemen.
He was Sir Launcelot and Sir Gallahad combined — not only a
valiant, but a stainless knight. In an age of commerce he awoke
the gentle accents of an age of chivalry ; and while the love of
combat was a passion which he never cultivated, his code of
manners carried the imagination back to the romantic days
when knighthood was in flower.
His lineage was ancient and honorable. The patrician
blood which coursed his veins came to him from a host of
illustrious forebears and rippled back without a stain to the
Norman tiltyards. Dlemocratic in principle, a loyal American
to the heart's core, this modest gentleman nevertheless bore

upon his eagle-crested shield the ducal coronet of Vernon of
Normandy, A. 1>. [052; and to the -tars .if his father's Anglo
American line of descent he added the royal insignia of his
mother's Scotch-Irish-English ancestors Munster-Montro
But there was more in his person than in his pedigree to
suggest baronial halls; and his real patent of nobility con
sisted, in the last analysis, of the inherent virtues which en-
nobled and beautified his symmetrical character.
James IT. R. Washington, his honored father, was a rep
resentative of the illustrious family of Virginia from which
sprang- the renowned Commander-in-Chief of the American
armies and the first President of the United States. The
elder Washington was a banker and a planter. He was also
a dominant figure in public affairs and held the office of mayoi
in two separate Georgia cities — Milledgeville and Macon. To
the latter town he was a bulwark of defense during the dark
days of the Civil War. His name is found among the charter
members of both the State Historical and the State Horticul-
tural Societies, two of Georgia's most beneficent and useful
Hugh Washington's mother was Mary Hammond. She
was the first real daughter to be enrolled in the National So-
ciety of the Daughters of the American Revolution, an organi-
zation of which she was a charter member, and she was also
the founder of the Georgia branch of the X. S. D. A. R., and
the first chapter regent in Georgia. The Mary Hammond
Washington chapter of Macon is the pioneer sisterhood which
commemorates her patriotic activities. She was also honorary
regent for the State of Georgia. Mrs. Washington was the
most notable woman of her day and time, endowed by nature
with an intellect of rare power, to which the best educational
advantages added something of the diamond's brilliancy of
polish. The opportunities of travel and the delights of litera-
ture also contributed to her wide range of general information.
But above everything else Mrs. Washington was characterized
by a sweetness of spirit which made her the embodiment of
23O THE LINEAGE BOOK.
gentleness itself. At the age of eighty-five she was in full
possession of her mental faculties and took the liveliest inter-
est in current events. The Daughters of the American Revo-
lution have most appropriately honored this gentle woman with
an exquisite marble bust in Continental Hall, Washington,
D. C. It bears the following inscription :
FOUNDER OF THE N. S. D. A. R. IN GEORGIA.
"A Woman mixed of such fine elements
That were all truth and religion dead,
She'd make them newly,
Being what she was."
Her father, Colonel Samuel Hammond, was a distin-
guished officer of the first war for independence and a civilian
of the most exalted rank. Subsequent to the purchase of
Louisiana from Napoleon, he was made the first Governor of
the district of Missouri, or Upper Louisiana, under the ap-
pointment of Mr. Jefferson, his headquarters' being at St.
Louis, where his children were born. Later in life he settled
at Varello, an extensive plantation to the east of the Savan-
nah River, and held many offices of trust and honor in the
State of South Carolina. For a number of years, in the early-
part of his career, he resided at Savannah, Ga., where he set-
tled at the close of the Revolution; and while a resident of
this State he represented Georgia for a term in the United
States Congress. He was a patrioc of unsullied reputation
and a man of the highest personal 'honor. On the pedestal of
his daughter's marble bust it is recorded that he "gave sixty
years of public service to the cause of America."
At the famous old Washington homestead, on the corner
of Washington and College streets, in the city of Macon, on
April 2, 1861, Hugh Vernon Washington first saw the light
of day ; and here surrounded by the scenes which welcomed
his advent into this life and which furnished the playground
of his youth, he fell tranquilly asleep on October 5, 191 1.
It was not an ungentle providence which permitted him
thus to die.
Half a century measured his life's brief span. But it was
i IRDER OF WASH I KGT IN. 23]
not in years alone thai he lived, but in deeds of kindness,
sympathetic and tender heart throbs, in courageous endeavor
which proclaimed his robust manhood, and in the sweet and
gentle ministry of helpfulness to others. He also witt
the marvelous scientific miracles of the most wonderful
of modern times.
Hugh Washington receive! his preparation for college at
Prof. B. T. llnnter's school for boys in Macon; and. entering
the University of Georgia in the fall of [880, he pursued for
one year an elective course in the academic department. His
ambition was to continue his favorite studies; but his ag
mother needed his stout arm. ami his brave heart at home.
Ever thoughtful and eonsiderate of her, the high-minded
\onth sacrificed his own wishes and, at the end of his sopho-
more year, entered the Law School, taking his degree at co
mencement in 1882. As a student he hore his blushing honors
thick upon him. While an under-graduate, he won the hrst
sophomore medal, offered as a prize for declamation. lie was
one of the public debaters of the Phi Kappa Society in 1881,
was the chosen anniversarian of the same organization in 1882,
and was one of the three picked debaters to represent his alma
mater in the championship contest with Mercer University in
the same year.
For the practice of his profession he located in the home
of his boyhood, and from the start rose steadily and rapidly
to the front. Modest to a fault, he neither sought nor desired
public office; but. at the earnest solicitation of his fellow citi-
zens, he hecame, when quite a young man, judge of the re-
corder's court of Macon, and to this important office he brought
the most substantial and solid qualifications.
Successful to a marked degree in the practice of law. he
nevertheless scorned the feats of juggler}' which belong to the
professional charlatan. Self interest never entered into the
calculations of Hugh Washington. No tainted shillings ever

be said of him that "in the silken glove of courtesy he mailed
the iron grip of honor."
His genius was essentially constructive. He organized
the Macon Athenaeum, the Macon Public Library, the Bibb
Agricultural Institute, the Bibb Humane Society, and gave
the initial impulse to numerous important civic enterprises. He
also held life memberships in both the Agricultural and Hor-
ticultural Societies of the State.
His distinguished ancestry, on both sides of the house,
connected him with Revolutionary days and deeds, while his
honored name was peculiarly fragrant with patriotic recollec-
tions. But he was worthy of his lineage. It took no stain
from him. On the contrary, it borrowed an added wealth of
association from his own splendid character. Conspicuously
identified with various patriotic orders, he was Lieutenant-
Governor of the Society of Colonial Wars, Vice-President of
the Oglethorpe Memorial Association ; Vice-President of the
Sons of the Revolution in Georgia, a member of the national
organization of Sons of the American Revolution, and a mem-
ber also' of other patriotic and hereditary orders.
As an orator, he represented the Ciceronian type. His
diction was faultless. Even in casual conversation it bespoke
the cultured mind and the mature thought of the scholar.
His acquaintance with books was vast. Nor was it by any
means in shallow or superficial draughts that he drank of the
Pierian Spring. He was often in demand on public occasions
and was frequently called into other States 10 discuss im-
portant topics. His range of thought was marvelous ; and
from one subject to another — however widely separated — he
could turn with the utmost ease. He was equally at home
whether in contemplating the mystery of the stars, or in solv-
ing the problems of civic reform, or in bettering the condi-
tions of agriculture or in espousing the cause of dumb ani-
mals. It was ever his delight to enjoy the sweets of country
life. He loved to commune with nature, whether in her fields
or in her forests ; and to the development of the vast resources
of his native state, much of his time was gratuitously and

gladly given. Mis tireless brain was both a storehouse of in-
tellectual treasure and a dynamo of nervous energy; he wrote
as well as he spoke with the grace of an accomplished master
upon a variety of themes; and he literally touched no subjed
which he did not adorn. He delivered the address at Ander
sonville National Cemetery in [890 and the address on Con
federate Memorial Day, in Augusta, in [893, besides eulogiz-
ing the heroic dead of Dixie in other Southern cities ; hut per-
haps none of these formal orations surpassed his impromptu
Fourth of July effort, on hoard an English vessel, which hore
the Union Jack, on Independence Day, 1909. He was at the
time on a tour of the old world. Mr. Washington's apostrophe
to the Star-Spangled Banner on this occasion thrilled and elec-
trified even the British tars. While it emphasized his sturdy
Americanism, there was no infraction of the law of good
taste ; and, without giving the least offense to any one on
board, he vividly reminded his English cousins of the little
scene at Yorktown in which another bearer of the name figured
in the Independence Day celebration.
But the honor which gave perhaps the greatest satisfac-
tion to Mr. Washington was his appointment by the Governor
of Georgia to represent his native State officially at the Lou-
isiana Purchase Centennial Exposition. The fitness of the
choice was universally conceded. As the grandson of the first
Territorial Governor of Missouri, as a representative citizen of
Georgia, as a gifted public speaker and as a man of unblem-
ished personal honor, he was pre-eminently fitted to grace this
important role; and he represented the State in a manner which
not only met the heartiest approval of the people of Georgia,
but elicited the warmest commendation of Governor Terrell in
his annual message to the General Assembly of the Common-
He was furthermore selected in 1907 to represent Geor-
gia at the Jamestown Ter-Centennial Exposition, an enter-
prise of world-wide interest, the object of which was to com-
memorate the first permanent English settlement on the conti-
nent of North America.

Under the terms of Mr. Washington's will, his alma mater,
the University of Georgia, is made the recipient of a sub-
stantial gift, to be known as the James H. R. Washington fund,
so called in honor of his father. He also made a similar be-
quest to Wesleyan College as a memorial to his mother. Still
another legacy was left to Mercer University ; while the

Mr. Washington never married. But his wealth of af-
fection was lavished without stint upon his loved ones ; and
in the home circle he was the incarnate flower of every grace
which makes life beautiful — the tenderest of sons, the dearest
of brothers, the manliest of men. At historic Washington

he dispensed a hospitality which proclaimed him an ideal host.
His genial wit, and his sunny spirit made him ever the

In the chalice of death he has found the elixir of life.

OLD FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA, AND ITS HISTORIC
Old Falls church was named from Great Falls on the Poto
mac, one of the most picturesque spots in America and visited
by tourists from Washington City, as Mt. Vernon is on the
lower Potomac ; all was originally the Washington estate.
Ruins of the old mill owned by General Washington are still
in good preservation at Great Falls. The Old Falls village
church is built of brick brought from England before the
revolution and is one of the three, including Powhick and
Christ Church, Alexandria, Va., identified with the Washing-
ton family in pre-revolutionary days, General Washington
having been a vestryman in each. This fact has been com-
memorated by tablets placed by the Society for Preservation
of Antiquities in Virginia. Falls church has been restored by
the Virginia Society of Patriots and Founders and the marker
placed there October 5, 191 1, by the D. A. R., under the direc-
tion of the Regent of Falls Church Chapter, Mrs. Callendar,
wife of the rector. Hon. Hugh Vernon Washington, of
Macon, Ga., was expected to speak at its unveiling, but on
that very day he was suddenly called to a higher life.
In the old church yard, half hidden by huge cedars and oaks,
many celebrities lie buried. Among them Lord Fairfax, of
the Washington family, and John Ball, brother of Mary, the
mother of George Washington ; Washington's only sister,
Elizabeth, from whose marriage to Colonel Fielding Lewis
the lineage of numerous descendants in Georgia and the South
are now established in historic records.
Memorial to Hon. Hugh Washington.
To the D. A. R. of Georgia, who loved and admired Hugh
Vernon Washington for his personal character no less than
as an associate in patriotic endeavor, the following from the
Washington Evening Star will be most interesting:
"Old Falls Episcopal church at Falls Church, Va., has re-
ceived a memorial in the shape of two handsome vases in

"Mr. Washington was a collateral descendant of General

of the vases were held Saturday afternoon, Octoher 5, at 5

"Dr. Joseph G. B. Bulloch, chancellor and historian of the
Order of Washington, delivered an eulogy on Mr. Washing-

that organization. Delegations were present from a number
of patriotic societies."
Dr. Bulloch spoke in part as follows :

"In these days we appear to be in a transitional stage of the
race's development and therefore there are forces which seem
todav to pull us backward and others which urge us forward.
We hence see how important it is that the forces which tend
to progress should have as leaders men and women capable
of resisting evil tendencies and who are able to conduct the
human family to a happier and better state of existence.
"W'hen, therefore, we lose one of our leaders in the forward

WE Need Such Men.
"Hugh Vernon Washington was descended from illustrious
ancestry, not only was he a Washington by descent, but had
as an ancestor the revolutionary hero, Colonel Samuel Ham-
mond. We need such men as Air. Washington in these trying
periods of our existence to aid in guiding us through the mist
which surround us on all sides, like him, who was full of love.
kindness and charity for all, whose example must have aided
man to attain a more exalted station.
"Mr. Washington was of fine appearance and a splendid
orator. Well do I remember his oration at one of our earlier
banquets of the Sons of the Revolution of the State of Georgia,
which Society afterward was honored in having him as an offi-
cer. He was a loyal friend, a loving brother, a devoted son,
and lived a life full of good deeds. He sought to bring the sec-
tions together in brotherly love. He was a true patriot and an
officer in different societies. As commissioner general from
Georgia to the Louisiana Purchase Centennial Exposition he
rendered conspicuous service to the State and Nation.
"We, therefore, in behalf of the donor, in presenting these
beautiful vases to the rector for this old church, feel that they
are well placed and hope that future generations when looking
upon them and upon the tablet to General Washington will
consider that they commemorate two men who were beacon
lights at different times to mankind. To his sister, Mrs. Ellen
Washington Bellamy, we extend our sincere sympathy in the
loss of one so dear to her and to many bereaved friends."

PRESENTATION OF THE [JUST
Hon. Hugh Vernon Washington
THE DAUGHTERS OF AMERICAN REVOLUTION
It was a most beautiful sight upon that night when at the
Continental Hall the bust of the Honorable Hugh Vernon
Washington was unveiled and presented to the Daughters oi
the American Revolution for the Hall.
It was a grand sight to see, at the opening of the ceremony,
the pages march in, bearing the Hag of our Country, followed
by the Maryland Committee of the "Star .Spangled Banner
Celebration" and the members of the ( )rder of Washington,
bearing at their head the Standard of the ( )rder and also rep-
resentatives of various patriotic bodies.
Upon the platform were many persons of prominence rep-
resenting the different societies. The President General of
the D. A. R., Mrs. Story, with the grace which becomes her,
opened the meeting and requested Dr. Bulloch to introduce
the speakers. Glowing tributes were made by Mrs. Bryan,
the daughter of the late Admiral Semmes and by Hon. White-
head Kluttz, ex-President of the Senate of North Carolina,
and by Dr. J. G. B. Bulloch, Chancellor General of the < >rder
of Washington, after which came the ceremonv of unveiling.
Hugh Vernon Washington was "A man, take him for all
in all, we shall not look upon his like again."

The President General : We look forward to a program
of great interest this evening, inasmuch as it is an occasion to
which we must all respond with great enthusiasm — this cele-
bration of the "Star Spangled Banner." It is peculiarly fitting
and appropriate that these ceremonies, and this program pre-
pared for us, should be preceded by an act of loving remem-
brance of consecration to an American hero of today, one who
was known to us all and beloved, not alone because, his mother
was one of the first and best beloved of the members of this
organization and because his sister has served faithfully and
well the Daughters of the American Revolution, but because
of his own great value and splendid character.
I am pleased to present to you Dr. J. G. B. Bulloch of the
Order of Washington, who will take the ceremony of unveil-

years. He lives most who does most and who acts for the
best." Death never summoned a more cordial gentleman, a
more devoted son, a kinder brother, and a more loyal friend
than when that summons came to Hugh Vernon Washington
of Georgia. Born in April, 1861, he first saw the light of day
in the very home where God came to summon his spirit, where
he crossed the dark valley into the Great Beyond, seeking the
light of that Great Light of the God above, whom he had loved
and worshipped here below. Born of noble parentage, going
back to the Vernons of Normandy, and Edward the first of
England and Phillip the third of France, it was one of his

lawyers. He was one to whom no mercenary consideration
could force to do a wrong thing. Charity Frequently blended
with his kind acts. He was a great humanist and philanthro
pist. He loved his native State and was actively interested
in everything that tended to her progress. When we come to
lay tribute at the feet of this great man we feel that in
honoring him we honor ourselves. It is very easy to sing the
praises of those who have made themselves illustrious, but
when we come to portray the character of a man who was
noble and generous, it arouses our kindly impulses. A grasp
of the hand was given those in trouble; his purse assisted
those in need. Many today stand and praise the kind acts of
Hugh Vernon Washington.

Mr. Kluttz : I count it a privilege tonight, as the represen-
tative of the Sons of the Revolution, to stand in the afterglow
of the benignant personality of Hugh Vernon Washington.
This marble is not so white as his character, not so lasting as
his influence. Such a life never dies. Unseen, disembodied,
it is here. Its echoes roll on forever.
"Kind hearts are more than coronets.
And simple faith than Norman blood."
A worthy wearer of the most illustrious name in the history
of liberty, the name of Washington, an active officer of the
Sons of the Revolution, he was primarily a patriot of the race
At the knees of a patriot mother, a distinguished member
and founder in Georgia of your Society, he learned a limitless
devotion to his land.
The mother alone is nobler and more beautiful than the
wife. T think it a very great and beautiful thing that at the
fore-front of the history of this republic, whose life is so largely
what its women make it, there stands forever the figures of
two types of womanhood, Mary, the mother of Martha, the
wife of Washington. With their own hands they knitted and
sewed and ministered for the soldiers of their country, and in
no hour of storm and stress, however dark or however great,
did their counsel or their cheer ever fail. In their eyes "was
seen the lovelight that lit the lowly mother's face above the
manger in Bethlehem, was reflected in the divine radiance that
shone in Mary's eyes when she was "last at the cross and first
at the tomb."
The story of America, up to those dark hours, is the un-

life we commemorate tonight:
Our Country! May she ever be "the hope of all who suf-

"It gives me great pleasure to present to you, Dr. Bulloch
of the ( )rder of Washington."
Dr. Bulloch: Madam President General, Daughters of the
American Revolution, ladies and gentlemen: On occasions
when the descendants of illustrious ancestors meet to discuss
the history of the past, and resolve that hereafter they shall
be an example to those who come after, and emulate the good
deeds of onr forefathers. It is said that we have no history
in America. They who make such an assertion are either
verv ignorant or else they have not studied history in the
proper way. Surely the civilization of the Aztec and of die
Toltecs, surely the mound-builders and the cave dwellers and
the ancient buildings of this country now in decay, sufficiently
attest and impart what America is. Tdere came the Spaniard,
with his civilization, and later on that noble band from Nor-
thern Europe, those individuals who went across the storm-
swept seas, knowing nothing about the strange land they were
to enter, there to fight disease and pestilence and the savage,
but they at last gained their freedom. This vast multitude
who came to this country became welded together and during
the Revolutionary War fought the Battle of Princeton and of
Yorktown and of Bunker Hill, of King's Mountain. Think
of our heroes of various nationalities — Washington. Lee.

Pulaski, Marion, Hammond, Greene and Sumter. These are
the men who made the history of America.
Another assertion is made that the settlers of this country
were ordinary people. Do you consider the Puritan, the Scot,
the Huguenot (whose blood flows in the veins of manv of us),
the Swede, and the enterprising' Hollander, ordinary people?
Those are the individuals who came across into this strange
land, cleared the forests, and laid the foundation of our present
The records show that there were many splendid people who
came to this country, not onlv the sturdy yoeman, but many
gentlemen. These same records prove that we have as fine
blood as flows in the old country. Historians very often make
a mistake. They seem to pass by certain people, looking, as
it were, from a mountain-peak, taking only a bird's eye view
of matters; hence by their jealousy and partisanship they pass
individuals by. But the genealogist, picking up the thread,
goes along and shows the ancestry and gives the position to
which they are entitled. It is true there are individuals whom
we ought to consider above the rest ; so great are they that we
class them among the stars of the first magnitude, but there
are others who seem to have been passed by. It is our duty
to show into which category they belong, to show their value
and their worth. Some are noble through generations — the

than in war, that patriotism strives for good government, bet-

betterment of the world. Grandson of a hero of the Ameri-

The Chaplain General, Mrs. Lockwood: "I knew this man
from his boyhood ; one of the rarest men I have ever known ;
so far above the sordid and selfish was he, that his spirit
seemed to soar aloft. He was a spiritual man of the highest
type. His mother was the very first woman from the South-
land who came to our rescue and helped to organize this
Society. When he left the hospital in Baltimore a short time
before his death, he and his dear sister, returning to their
home in Georgia, stopped in Washington ; as I was passing
through the park I met them. He said, M am a very sick
man ; I wanted to be out in the open ; I did not know that I
should have this good fortune.' It was in the spring of the
year, — to hear the robins sing — I love the robins. Just at
that moment two robins floated over us and began to sing in
the trees ; that memory has gone with me through the days,
and I have always felt it was the benediction of that lovely
man. In memory of his Mother and of this devoted Son, I

Hon. A. S. Goldsboro, of Maryland, of the Star Spangled

face to face with a body of women like these belonging to
this Congress, feels himself more than honored ; I say this
because any man just at this moment who is not conscious of
at least a quicker pulse when the word Patriotism is spoken,
is a man absolutely dead to all feeling. When I stand face to
face with a body of women whom I know are now laboring,
and have been laboring for years, for the sole and specific
purpose of cultivating the sentiment of Patriotism, I know
that by reflex action I am gathering some of the benefit of these
labors, is it a wonder that I bow my head reverently — that I
am in the presence of the queens of Patriotism ; who are the
women who make this country well worth living in? My
friends, you and I are continually alluding to that word,
"Patriotism" — without stopping to catch the full measure of
ORDER I "' W VSH I NGTON. 247
its meaning. \\ hen we stop to think that there is in it, and of
ii a certain unseen and indescribable emotion that siezes upon
a man in time of danger, and makes him throw his body an 1
fortune on the altar of his country, be the sacrifice what ii
may. When you think of Patriotism in words like that, we
cannot speak of it in trivial terms but we must talk of 11
if we were dealing with sacred propositions. When I sat here
tonight ami witnessed the beautiful ceremonial of the unveiling
of that bust, I thought how many young- men in the Slate that
face represents, will every time they hear that name mentioned
and realize that face and body and head are here in the thoughts
of the people of the country ; but, whose hearts will thrill with
the desire to emulate the life there represented; and whenever
the time comes that they can prove that they too are men, will
catch the ideal and remember the face as an inspiration. My
friends, when you think of Patriotism, we know that it is the
only great power and the only great force that makes men and
women forget their selfishness, forget their avarice, forget
everything but their country's welfare, I say it is a sentiment
born of God and nurtured of Heaven, and is for every man
and woman a sacred sentiment. No man or woman could
look upon a ceremonial intended to he a tribute to a patri -t
without realizing what it means, not to ourselves, but to the
future. That man is made none the better because his bust
is here, God has taken to His own. but his deeds and spirit
form a motive for emulation. (Applause.) It is the im-
pression that we are to make upon the younger generations
of the land that will furnish a theme for the sweetness and
excellence and perfection of its future: and every time that
a celebration like this takes place, that has behind it the abso-
lute purity of a patriotic motive, it is national in its bearing.
If it is national in its possibilities, it comes to you with a
significance that if there is any practical reality in the perfec-
tion of patriotic organizations, it will rind its expression in
deeds when the occasion arises, do not deceive yourselves by
the belief that Patriotism because it has existed from the time
of our ancestors will live without effort to keep it alive. There
are times that are detrimental and subversive to Patriotism,
248 the: lineage book.
just as there are times when we throw away that which appears
to come from the spirit of the Most High, an exalted senti-
ment from the Great Being above. It needs some splendid
sentiment to make a person ready and willing to sacrifice every-
thing to patriotism, and here is where we find it nurtured, here
in the body of women who inherited the patriotism of ijyG;
here in this Temple of the Vestal Virgins, who will keep the
flame of Patriotism alive and become the distributors of this
same sentiment throughout our land."
