Is Affectionately Dedicated 

By Her Son 



The Lundy lineage, so far as known, begins with three 
names, which represent three successive generations — father, 
son, and grandsc .1. 

First. The father was Sylvester Lundy of Axminster, 
County of Devon, England ; our only known ancestor in the 
Lundy line who lived and died in the Old World. 

Second. The son was Richard Lundy the First, born in 
England, a resident of Axminster, an emigrator to the N.ew 
World in 1676, a settler in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and 
the Founder of the Lundy Family in America. He was an 
Elder in the Religious Society of Friends. 

Third. The grandson was Richard Lundy the Second, the 
first American-born Lundy. He was born in the County of 
Bucks, Pennsylvania, in 1692 ; and died in the County of 
Warren, New Jersey, in 1772. He was an Elder in the Relig- 
ious Society of Friends, and was active at the organization of 
three new Meetings, or Churches, in the wilderness — the Buck- 
ingham, the Plumstead, and the Hardwick. From this Rich- 
ard the Second have sprung numerous Lundy households, 
which are now widely scattered throughout the United States 
and Canada. 

We will now speak more fully concerning each of these three 

Sylvester Lundy. 

Very brief, indeed, is the account that has come down to us 
concerning this man who leads the list of our Lundy fore- 
fathers. We know his name and the town he lived in and that 
he begot a son Richard. These items, so meager and barely 
sufiticient for the inscription on a tombstone, comprise the whole 
record ; there is nothing else known about him. No definite 
answer can be given to the many queries which naturally arise 
concerning his rank, occupation and religious belief, his wife, 
and his other children, if others there were, and his parentage 
and remote ancestry. 


But our authority for what little we do know is excellent ; and 
a great satisfaction it is to have the history of the Lundy 
Family open, not with some vague tantalizing tradition, but 
with matter of early historical record. Our authority is an 
official entry which was made about 1685 in a book kept by a 
public officer in pursuance of a colonial law. The entry begins 
thus : "Richard Lundy, of Axminster, in the County of Devon, 
son of Sylvester Lundy, of the said town in old England . . ." 
These words, as it will appear when we describe more fully the 
document from which they are quoted, were undoubtedly taken 
down by the Register of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, from the 
lips of Richard himself. 

We have now told all that is known about Sylvester Lundy 
and have given our authority ; and yet although we have a long 
genealogical story to tell, we cannot pass on at once, but feel 
that we must pause and muse in reverent spirit as by the side 
of an ancient grave newly- found wherein rests one "of whom we 
would fain learn more. 

Here, too, seems to be the appropriate place in our narrative 
to introduce a short account of Axminster, "the said town in 
old England," the trans-atlantic home of our ancestor Sylvester 

What and where is Axminster, and why was it so named? 
Devon is one of the southern counties of England, and Axmin- 
ster is one of the southern towns of Devon. It is a small 
market-town with less than three thousand inhabitants, on the 
river Axe, three miles from the English Channel. It is much too 
small to be on the map in a common geography ; on a map of 
larger scale, it will be found on the southern coast-line of Eng- 
land a little west of the Isle of Wight. How came the place to 
have that name ? The word minster has the same origin as the 
word monastery, and means a church, a place of worship, and 
hence Axminster means the church on the river Axe. More 
than a thousand years ago King Aethelstan of England defeated 
the heathen Danes, who had invaded his realm, in a great battle 
on the banks of the river Axe ; and in his gratitude he erected a 
church on the field of his victory and called it Axminster. 
Gradually a village grew up around the church, and the name 
Axminster was then used to designate the town as well as the 
sacred edifice. Some persons who were carpet-weavers by 
trade settled there and made the place famous by the excellency 


and peculiar style of their handiwork; and although this par- 
ticular form of industry long ago lost its characteristic import- 
ance at that village, yet the word Axminster as designating a 
certain make of carpet is still used everywhere in the commer- 
cial world. 

Richard Lundy the First. 

Richard Lundy 1., the only known child of Sylvester, 
was the Founder of the Lundy Family in America. Richard 
left his native land for the New World during Sixth month, 
1676, a date easily remember J, being exactly one hundred 
years before the Declaration of Independence. Sixth month 
was August, for in those times March was counted the first 
month of the year. He sailed from Bristol, an important sea 
port on the western coast of England, and landed at Boston in 
the province of Massachusetts. He remained in New England 
among the Puritans nearly six years ; but not a single item of 
information concerning his place of residence or his experience 
during that interval has come down to us. From history, we 
know that it was an uneventful period for the people of New 
England, a period of rest after their terrific conflict against the 
confederated Indians under King Philip. Richard's sojourn 
among the Puritans ended in 1682 ; on the 19th of 3rd month 
(May) in that year, he embarked and sailed for the Delaware 
river. What motives he had for leaving New England, we do 
not know ; but we do know that Pennsylvania was just at that 
time being energetically boomed as an ideal home for settlers. 

William Penn, the grandest figure in American colonial his- 
tory, was so good that we sometimes forget how wise and 
shrewd he was. Penn got his charter from Charles II. in 
March, 1781, and immediately published a circular describing 
his new country in glowing terms ; he then began to issue a 
series of public letters, which kept his colony before the eyes of 
the world ; and finally the great Proprietor himself set sail and 
reached Pennsylvania during the last week in October, 1682, 
and founded the city of Philadelphia. The total population of 
Pennsylvania at that time was estimated at six thousand ; and 
immigrants continued to arrive at the rate of one thousand a 

Richard Lundy came to Pennsylvania in 1682 ; two years 
later he secured some real estate and took to himself a wife. 

In the Minutes of the Board of Property of the Province of 


Richard luMdy 1. 

Pennsylvania, under date of 15 of 12 month, 1702, the following 
entry is found : "The Prop'ry, by a Patent, dated 6, 5 month, 
1684, Granted to Rich'd Lundy 200 Acres of Land Situate in 
the County of Bucks at a penny pr. Acre, laid out 10, 6 month, 
1682-3. R'd Lundy by Ind'r dated 8, 7 month, 1683, Granted 
the Said Land to Jacob Telnor." See Pennsylvania Archives, 
Second Series, vol. xix., page 359. 

He came to the Delaware river in 1682 ; and, so far as the 
records show, he seems to have made his first purchase of land 
in 1684; hence it is surprising to find the name of Richard 
Lundy on a map of that river dated 1681. It is suggested that 
the map may have been at first an outline sketch, and that the 
names of new-comers who took up land may have been inserted 
afterward. Mr. W. J. Buck in his history of Bucks county 
names Richard Lundy among the original owners of land in 
Bristol township. 

Ihere was at that time living in Falls township a widow, 
Rebecca Bennet, with her four unmarried daughters, Elizabeth, 
Rebecca, Sarah, and Ann. William Bennet, the father, then 
recently deceased, had left by will to each of his girls £30 in 
money and 200 acres of land. Richard Lundy L and Elizabeth 
Bennet were married by Friends' ceremony on 20 of 8 month, 
1684. On 22 of 2 month, 1685, Elizabeth attended the wedding 
of Joseph English and Joan Comly and signed their marriage 
certificate as one of the witnesses. 

Richard L owns a farm now and has a wife; of course, he 
ought to keep a cow or two. And he did ; even that is a matter 
of record, for he is described as an "owner of cattle." Very 
little land was fenced in ; it all lay out to the common. The 
early settlers allowed their live stock to roam at large through 
the woods and browse on the natural grass. Sometimes the 
cattle would stray far away and be gone a long time ; and in 
some cases it would be difficult for the owner to recognize his 
cattle and prove his right of property thereto to the satisfaction 
of neighbors or strangers ; and therefore each settler, before he 
turned his cows and calves loose for the summer, marked each 
of them plainly. He cut their ears in a certain way, or else he 
took a red-hot iron and blistered them on the shoulder leaving 
a permanent scar in the shape of a letter, criss-cross or other 
character. Marks thus made were easily seen and recognized, 
and could be described with accuracy. Only one thing was yet 


necessary for the successful working of this system of identi- 
fication ; and that was that no two owners should use the same 
mark. To this end, a registrar was appointed for the whole 
county, whose duty it was to keep in a hook a list of all cattle 
owners with the marks used hy each.. Indeed, the law of the 
province expressly declared that all cattle whatsoever of a year 
old and upwards should be accompted strayes which were not 
marked on the ear or otherwise with a brand mark. 

The book of registered cattle-marks for Bucks county was 
kept by Phineas Pemberton at Penn's Manor, and bears the 
date 1684; this realistic relic of pioneer life is still in existence, 
and may be seen at the library of the Pennsylvania Historical 
Society in I'hiladelphia. It is twelve inches long by four wide, 
contains about forty pages and is margined with a thumb index. 
The title on the outside of the parchment cover is "A Record of 
the Earc and Brand Marks for Bucks in Pennsylvania." The 
book contains one hundred five sets of ear-marks arranged six 
on a page ; and among them is the cattle-mark of Richard the 
First, which is here reproduced. 

The outline sketch 
or drawing represents 
the forehead and ears 
of a cow as she would 
stand facing her 
owner. The left ear 
half way down on the 
lower edge has a slit 
cut in ; the right ear 
has a slit downward at 
the point, and is also 
cropped with a half- 
pen n y undercut. 
Neither ear- tip is 
cropped. The original 
drawings are not with- 
out a touch 'of the picturesque ; all the natural outline is in 
black, but all slits and the margins of all crops are penciled in 
red as though fresh-cut. 

A law requiring the enrollment of all emigrants was enacted 
at New Castle, on the loth day of the 3rd month, 1684, by the 
Governor and the Provincial Council and Assembly; and the 



said law is herewith quoted in full as printed on page 170 in a 
volume entitled "The Charter of William Penn and Laws of the 
Province of Pennsylvania passed between the years 1682- 

"Chap. CLXIII. That there be a Registry kept of all free- 
man, as well as servants, that already are, or from time to time 
shall come, into this Province and territories not already regis- 
tered ; to which end all persons inhabiting" therein are hereby 
required at or before the first day of the fifth month next ensu- 
ing, and afterwards all that shall henceforward come to inhabit 
in any County within this Government within three months 
after arrival to deliver in the names of his or her family, male 
and female, old and young, unto the Register of the respective 
Counties where hee, shee or they inhabit. To be by him regis- 
tered in a book or bookes for that purpose with their ages as 
neer as may be and where they wore born ; or from what part 
of Europe or other parts they came ; From whom the said Reg- 
ister respectively shall have and demand no more than Three 
pence a peece. And if any person refuse or neglect to bring in 
the names of his or her or their families to be registered as 
aforesaid, within the time aforelimited, he shall for the said 
ofifence forfeit five shillings a head." 

Let us now turn to the register-book that was opened and 
kept in Bucks county as directed by the foregoing law. Four 
of the entries found in it have a bearing on the history of the 
Lundy family and are given herewith. 

"James Harrison of Bolton in the County of Lancaster, aged 
about 57 years, Shoemaker, and Ann his wife, aged about 61 
years. Sailed from Liverpool, for this province in the ship the 
"Submission" of Liverpool, the M'r., James Settle, the 5th of 
the 7th Mo., 1682, and arrived at Choptank in Maryland the 
2 1 St 9th Mo. following, being brought thither through the dis- 
honesty of the master, and arrived at Apoquinemene in this 
province the 15th of the nth Mo. following"; and then the 
record enumerates five persons who accompanied James and 
Ann Harrison, namely : Agnes Harrison, aged 81 years, 
mother of James ; Phebe, daughter of James Harrison and wife 
of Phineas Pemberton ; Robert Bond, Alice Dickerson, and 
Jane Lyon. James Harrison was a minister in the Religious 
Society of Friends ; he was the Stewart of William Penn and 
had charge of Penn's mansion and manor in Bucks county. 


"William Bennet of Hammondsworth [Harniondsworth, near 
Longford J in the County of Middlesex, yeoman, and Rebecca 
his wife, arrived in this river 9th Mo., 1683, in the ship the 
"Jeffrey" of London. The Mr. Thomas Arnold." 

"Richard Limdy, of Axminster in the County of Devon, son 
of Sylvester Lundy of the said town in old England, came in 
a Catch from Bristol (the Mr. William Browne) for Boston in 
New England, in the 6th Mo., 1676, and from thence came for 
this river [Delaware] the 19th of the 3d Mo., 1682." 

"Elizabeth Bennet, daughter of William Bennet late of the 
County of Bucks, and now wife to the aforesaid Richard Lundy, 
came from Longford in the County of Middlesex, in the ship 
the "Concord" of London. The Mr. William Jeffrey, Arrived 
in this river the 8th Mo., 1683." . 

And then a few lines further down in the original record, a 
private memorandum by the Register of Bucks county is found, 
which reads: "I have given C. Taylor an acct. thus far, ist 
3d Mo., 1686." Hence we conclude that the original entries just 
quoted concerning Richard Lundy and Elizabeth Bennet his 
wife, nuist have been made subsequently to the date of their 
marriage, 20 of 8 month, 1684, and prior to i of 3 month, 1686, 
the day on which the Register of Bucks comity certified that he 
had furnished an official transcript to Christopher Taylor, the 
Register-General of the Province. Whether or not the original 
register-book for Bucks county is yet in existence, is not known ; 
but the Historical Society of Pennsylvania has in its possession 
a certified copy of the original. In 1885, the whole record was 
published in the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biog- 
raphy, under the heading "A Partial List of the Families who 
Resided in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Prior to 1687, with 
the Date of their Arrival"; see Vol. IX., pp. 223-234. 

H there be no confusion concerning the names of ships and 
masters, William Bennet and his daughter Elizabeth came from 
England about the same time but in different vessels ; but it is 
possible that the names of ship and master were incorrectly 
reported from memory. The ship "Submission" had been two 
months and sixteen days in crossing the ocean ; two months' 
time was in those days deemed a prosperous voyage ; and the 
two weeks extra in this case were caused by unfavorable 
weather, which was the captain's excuse for landing his pas- 
sengers in Maryland. It may be remarked that the age of 


Richard Lundy is unfortunately omitted from the Register- 
book, and that Richard had not enrolled himself within the time- 
limit set by the statute, and hence had rendered himself techni- 
cally liable to the forfeiture of five shillings for neglect. 

Elizabeth (Bennet) Lundy, wife of Richard Lundy L, was 
buried on 14 of 6 month, 1687, less than three years after her 
marriage. A record of births and deaths among Friends was 
kept from 1682 to i/ii; only one Lundy burial is entered 
therein, that of Elizabeth herself; and no Lundy birth is 
recorded prior to 1692. The absence of a record of the birth of 
any Lundy child would seem to indicate that Elizabeth left no 
issue ; but, on the other hand, John Lundy of Bucks county, 
concerning whom we will speak fully a few pages further on, 
may have been her son. 

In 1688, William Penn confirmed to Richard Lundy a tract 
of land containing one thousand acres situate in Buckingham 
township, Bucks county, Pa. It was a fine piece of property 
fronting a mile on the old York Road, well-watered, embracing 
primeval forest and a lovely valley of unsurpassed fertility. 
An early survey of certain portions of Buckingham township 
is still extant and bears date 1703 ; a map of it, published by 
Gen. W. H. H. Davis in his History of Bucks County, shows a 
rectangular block of land inscribed as follows : . 
"Rich'd Lundy 1025 A 

Laid out for 1000 A" 

Adjoining tracts were owned by Edmund Kinsey and Thomas 
Bye on the east, liy Jno. Reynolds on the south, and by John 
Smith on the west. The middle point of a straight north-and- 
south line joining Easton and Philadelphia marks approxi- 
mately the position of the Lundy plantation in Bucks county. 
The village of Buckingham is seven miles from the Delaware 
river, and is about twenty-five miles south of Easton and the 
same distance north of Philadelphia. 

When and how was this tract disposed of? Only a partial 
answer can be given. 

Thomas Canby is said to have bought a part of a Lundy tract 
near Centreville in 1693 ; and James Lenox is said to have pur- 
chased, some years after this, 400 acres of land from Richard 
Lundy. The Lundy tract was near the recently-established 
post-office named Holicong, and is now owned by the Paxsons, 
Elys and others. Richard Lundy owned land in Bristol-bor- 


oiig-h, Bucks county; in 1706; and Watson's map showing 
owners of land in 1726 places the name of Richard Lundy on a 
tract along the Delaware river near the Penn Manor. 

In the fourth year after the death of his first wife, Richard 
Lundy I. married again. His second wife was Jane Lyon, the 
Quaker maiden previously mentioned as having come to 
America with the family of James Harrison. They were mar- 
ried at the Falls Monthly Meeting in Bucks county, Pa., on 
24 of 4 mo. (June), 1691 ; and to them there was horn in Bucks 
county on 20th day of 3rd month, 1692, a son Richard, desig- 
nated in this genealogy as Richard Lundy H., who married 
Elizabeth Large, settled finally in Warren county, N. J., and 
there died on 28th of 2nd month, 1772. We now quote from 
the minutes of the Buckingham Monthly Meeting two sen- 
tences relating to the marriage of Richard Lundy L and Jane 
Lyon. The minutes of a Meeting held in Falls township on the 
1st day of the 2nd month, 1691, state that "Richard Lundy and 
Jane Lyon proposed their intentions of taking each other in 
marriage ; it being the first time, the meeting appoints John 
Cook and Joseph Kirkbride to inquire concerning his clearness 
and give an account to the next meeting" ; and the minutes of 
a meeting held at the house of Henry Baker on the 6th day of 
3rd month, 1691, state that "Joseph Kirkbride relates that he 
hath made inquiry concerning Richard Lundy and finds nothing 
but that he may proceed with Jane Lyon ; Richard Lundy and 
Jane Lyon proposed their intentions of taking each other in 
marriage ; it being the second time and nothing appearing but 
that both parties are clear, the meeting leaves them to their 
liberty to accomplish the same." 

We insert here a literal copy of the marriage certificate of 
Richard Lundy I. and Jane Lyon : 

Richard Lundy of ye County of Bucks & province of Penn- 
silvania, husbandman, and Jane Lyon of ye Aforesaid County & 
province, spinster, having intentions of taking each other in 
manage, did publish their said intentions according to law as 
also did declare them before severall publique meetings of ye 
people of god called Quakers whose proceedings therein, after 
deliberat consideration and consent of partys concerned, were 
Aproved by ye meetings ; Therefore these may certifie all whom 
it may concerne that on ye 24th day of ye fifourth mo., 1691, 
they ye said Richard Lundy and Jane Lyon Apeared in a pub- 


lique & sollem assembly of ye said people mett together for ye 
end and purpose at ye publique meeting-house of ye aforesaid 
people, near the ffals of Dellaware in ye county aforesaid, 
according to ye example of ye holly men of god recorded iti ye 
Scriptures of truth. 

He ye said Rich : Lundy, taking ye said Jane Lyon by ye hand, 
did openly declare as followeth, — fifriends, in ye presence of ye 
Lord & before you his people. I take this my fifriend Jane Lyon 
to be my wife, promising to be to her a faithful and loveing 
husband till death seperat us. 

And then and there in ye said assembly, she ye said Jane 
Lyon did in like manner declare as followeth, — fifriends, in ye 
fear of ye Lord & Before you his people, I take this my fifriend 
Rich : Lundy to be my huslmnd. promising to be to him, through 
ye assistance of ye Lord, a faithfull & loveing wife till it shall

And ye said Rich : Lundy and Jane his now wife, as a further 
confirmation thereof, did then & there to these presents sett

The certificate given above was transcribed by me from an 
old book now in the possession of the Middletown (Hicksite) 
Society of Friends, entitled "The Quarterly Meeting Record 
for Marriage Certificates in Bucks County, Beginning in the 
yeare 1683." In looking over the list of witnesses present at 
the wedding, it may be noted that not one among them, so far 
as is known, was of kin by blood to either the bride or the 
groom. Rebecca Williams, formerly Mrs. William Bennet, was 
the mother, and Ann and Sarah Bennet were the sisters, of 
Richard's first wife. 

Jane Lyon was born in England in April, 1666; she was 
sixteen years old when she came to America, and twenty-five 
years old when she married Richard. The ship "Submission" 
which she came in set sail on 5 of 7 month, 1682, and arrived 
in Chespeake bay, Maryland, on 21 of 9 month, 1682. 

A comparison of dates shows that the ship "Welcome" bear- 
ing William Penn on his first visit to America, was crossing the 
Atlantic ocean during this very time. Some of the passengers 
on disembarking from the "Submission" remained in the Chop- 
tank, Maryland ; but others, including those with whom Jane 
had come, soon removed to Bucks county. Pa. 

So it appears that Richard and Jane, not knowing of each 
other's existence, reached the land of William Penn within a 
year of each other, he by way of Delaware bay from New Eng- 
land, and she by way of Chespeake bay from Old England. 

"The Harrison and Pemberton families," says Watson in his 
Annals of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania in the Olden Time, 
Vol. I., page 47, "came over together among 50 passengers in 
the ship" Submission," Capt. James Settle, from Liverpool. 
The terms of passage were £4 5s. for all persons over twelve 
years of age, for all children £2 2s. 6d., and for all goods, £30 
per ton. Their contract was 'to proceed to Delaware river or 
elsewhere in Pennsylvania to the best conveniency of freighters.' 
It may serve to know the execution of such voyages to learn 
that by distress of weather they were landed in the 'Potuxen 
River in Maryland' whence they came to Philadelphia and pro- 
ceded thence to Pennsbury neighborhood [Falls township, 
Bucks county], where they settled and occupied places of dis- 
tinguished trust. When James Harrison and his son-in-law, 
Phineas Pemberton, first entered Philadelphia on horseback, 
from Choptank in Maryland, the latter records that at that time 


(Nov., 1682), they could not procure entertainment there for 
their horses ; 'they therefore spancellecl them [by leathern 
hopples, I presume] and turned them out in the woods! They 
sought them next morning in vain, and after two days' search 
[think what a wide range they must have enjoyed] they were 
obliged to take a boat to proceed u\) the river to Bucks county. 
One of those horses was not found till the succeeding January !" 

Although the records indicate that Richard Lundy I. was at 
an early day the owner of real estate situate in the township of 
Buckingham, the numerous references to Richard, found on the 
minutes of the Falls Monthly Meeting between 1693 and 1701, 
prove that he and his wife resided during that period in Falls 

The last occurrence that I observed of the name of Richard 
Lundy 1. on the minutes of the Falls Monthly Meeting was in 
1701. The record for the 4th month of that year says : "Agreed 
that Joseph Kirkbride and Edmund Lovet and Richard Lundy 
endeavor to find a spring near the meeting house and, if they 
find one, get it opened and cleaned" ; and two months later, it is 
stated that "the friends who were appointed to seek for a spring 
do say that they have searched, and cannot find one above the 
ground that is convenient to the meeting house." 

Jane Lyon had come to the New World unaccompanied by 
her parents, and she was therefore entitled, according to the 
homestead law of the colony, to fifty acres of land. At last, 
Richard L applied to the Board of Property of the Province of 
Pennsylvania for the head-land of his wife, Jane Lyon. 

In the Pennsylvania Archives, second series, vol. xix., page 
643, under date of 18 of i month, 1717-18, we find that Richard 
Lundy, of the County of Bucks, had made it appear by the evi- 
dence of Joseph Mather that Richard's present wife (then Jane 
Lyon) came into this province with the families of Phineas 
Pemberton and James Harrison, and that Jane was entitled to 
head-land which had never yet been laid out ; and therefore 
Richard now desired it might be granted, which was complied 
with; and a warrant was signed, dated 10, 9ber, 1718. 

Richard Lundy L was living in 1734; on the 8 day of 8th 
month in that year, his granddaughter, Mary Lundy, was mar- 
ried to Robert Willson at Plumstead, and among the witnesses 
were Richard Lundy (the bride's father), Richard Lundy (the 


bride's brother, aged nineteen), and Richard Lundy, senior (the 
bride's grandfather, who had been in America fifty-eight years). 

"Richard Lundy, Senior," presented to the Exeter Monthly 
Meeting in Berks County, Pa., on 24 of 9 month, 1737, a cer- 
tificate of membership from the Buckingham Monthly Meeting; 
this is probably Richard Lundy L ; and it is the last time that 
he is mentioned on the minutes. The said certificate contains 
no reference to his wife Jane ; hence it may be inferred that she 
had died previous to that date. Richard Lundy L probably died 
at Maiden creek, Berks county, Pa., about 1738; his name is 
not found among the witnesses to the marriage certificate of his 
grandson in 1739. 

Many years thereafter, a testimonial concerning their son, 
which was publicly approved by the Kingwood Monthly Meet- 
ing and signed by order of said Meeting at Hard wick the 13th 
of 8th month, 1772, mentions Richard and Jane Lundy as "Pro- 
fessors of the Truth with us," a statement which shows that 
Richard and Jane continued to walk in the plain and peaceful 
ways of the Society of Friends and died in that religious faith. 

The life of Richard Lundy, the Founder, has now been pre- 
sented as fully as it is possible to do from the scattered and 
detached references to him which have been discovered ; but 
we must return to the question of how many children he had. 
There was a certain John Lundy of Bucks county, Pa., and there 
was also a Margaret Lundy of the same place, possibly John's 
wife. Was this John Lvmdy a son of Richard Lundy, the 
Founder ? This question cannot be answered conclusively from 
the scant evidence which has thus far been discovered. I will 
now state all the facts that are known concerning this John 

John Lundy and Margaret Lundy were witnesses to the cer- 
tificate of Richard Lundy and Elizabeth Large, who were 
married in the township of Buckingham on 3rd day of 4th 
month, 1714, Margret's name standing immediately below 
John's, that being the usual order of signature for husband and 
wife ; and the names of John and Margret appear in the list just 
after those of the near kinsmen of the bride. 

A petition was presented in March. 1725, to the Court of 
Quarter Sessions of Bucks county, Pa., for the erection of a new 
township ; and among those who signed this petition were John 
Lundy and Richard Lundy, Jr. 


The name of John Lnndy appears among the witnesses to the 
marriage certificate of Mary Lundy and Robert Willson, which 
is dated at Pkmistead, Bucks county, Pa., 8 of 8 month, 1734; 
and the name of Alargret Lundy is among the witnesses to the 
marriage of Richard Lundy IIL and Ann Willson at Bucking- 
ham, Bucks county, Pa., on 10 of 8 month, 1739. 

"John Lundy and Richard Lundy, Jr.," says Gen. W. H. H. 
Davis in his History of Bucks County, "were among the origi- 
nal settlers of Solebur\' Township." 

In the library of the Pennsylvania Historical Society at Phila- 
delphia, there is a manuscript history of the townships of Buck- 
ingham and Solebury by John Watson ; and it is stated therein 
that a number of Friends came from Long Island in 1705 and in 
the list are given the names of John and Richard Lundy. 
Without questioning the fact of a Quaker migration from Long 
Island, we know that Watson's statement concerning Richard 
Lundy is erroneous, and it is possible that his statement concern- 
ing John Lundy is also erroneous. 

On 14 day of i month, 175 1, a certain John Lundy presented 
to the Kingwood M. AI. in Hunterdon county, N. J., a certificate 
of membership from the Gwynedd M. M. in Montgomery 
county, Pa. Query — Was John of Gwynedd identical with John 
of Bucks ? Such are the facts. In the absence of further data, 
it is natural to suppose that John Lundy was a son of Richard 
Lundy I. by his first wife, Elizabeth Bennet. But this is a mere 
assumption; there is no proof. John's birth is not found of 
record ; but the matter of registration might easily have been 
neglected amid the grief and changes attendant on Elizabeth's 
death in 6 month, 1687, in the third year after her marriage. 

Richard Lundy the Second. 

He was the son of Richard and Jane (Lyon) Lundy, and 
grandson of Sylvester Lundy of Axminister. He was born in 
Bucks county, Pa., on the 20th day of the 3rd month (May), 
1692; and died on the 28 day of the 2nd month (February), 
1772, in the 80th year of his age, in the township of Allamuchy, 
County of Warren, X. J. He was buried in the yard of the 
Hardwick Society of Friends on the bank of the Request river. 

Richard Lundy 11. lived during his childhood and youth, with 
his parents, near the Friends' meeting-house in Falls township ; 
his home was not far from the mansion of William Penn, so 


that this first American-bom Lundy, when a lad of eight or nine 
years, must frequently have seen and sometimes heard the great 
Quaker statesman : for Penn lived at the mansion during his 
second visit to America in 1700-01 and was a regular attend- 
ant at the little meeting-house for worship, and there, too, 
sometimes lifted up his voice in prayer and exhortation. 

Richard Ltmdy II. and Elizabeth Large, daughter of Joseph 
Large of Bucks county. Pa., were married on 3 of 4 month, 

Two extracts are given herewith from the records of the 
Falls Monthly Meeting. Bucks county. Pa. : 
7th of 2 mo., 1714- 

"Richard Lundy. Junior, and Elizabeth Large proposed their 
intentions of marriage ; it being the first time, this meeting doth 
appoint Joseph Fell and William Lacy to inquire into his clear- 
ness and conversation and make report to next meeting." 
5th of 3 mo.. 1714. 

"Richard Lundy and Elizabeth Large proposed their inten- 
tions of marriage : it being the second time, and nothing appear- 
ing to obstruct they are left to their liberty to proceed according 
to truth, therefore this meeting doth appoint Thomas Bye and 
Joseph Fell to see it orderly accomplished." 

The Marriage Certificate of Richard Lundy II. and Elizabeth 
Large is given in the Record of Marriages for Hardwick and 
Randolph Monthly Meeting. Warren and Morris counties. Xew 
Jersey: it is the first certificate that was filed and copied, and 
begins on page one : —

Here our genealogical tree divides into many branches ; but, 
before considering that question, it will be well to string 
together such scattered items concerning the parents themselves 
as have been culled from various sources. 

Richard and Elizabeth lived for twenty-three years (1714- 
1737) in Bucks county. Pa.; and then for ten years (1737- 
1747) at Maiden Creek in Berks county. Pa.; and then (1747, 
until their deaths) in the township of Allamuchy, Warren 
county, N. J. The dates of removal are accurately determined 
from the certificate of membership given to them on each 
occasion by the Friends' meeting. 

They dwelt at first in Buckingliam township, which is in the 
centre of Bucks county. Being at an inconvenient distance 
from any meeting-house, Richard and those Friends who had 
settled near him applied to the Falls Monthly Meeting for per- 
mission to organize a new Society ; their request was granted 
on 24 of 9 month, 1720, and they built the meeting-house at 
Buckingham that same year. 

The first entry in their book of minutes is dated 6 of 10 
month, 1720 ; and the first pages are taken up almost exclusively 
by a long account of the efforts made by the Society at its 
monthly meetings to adjust a dispute between Christopher 
Topham and Richard Lundy IL concerning a bond and a book- 

2 2 RldHARD LUNDY it 

Richard and his family soon moved to PUmistead, which was 
seven miles to the northwest. This was in 1724; for in the 
Buckingham minutes of that year, 2 of 10 month Richard 
Lundy, Junior, is alluded to as "now being Removed Ffar of." 
The location of their new home is indicated on an old map of 
that vicinity, drawn March 11, 1724, which places Richard's 
land in the southwestern part of the present township of Plum- 
stead. Among the petitioners to the Court of Quarter Sessions 
in March, 1725, for the erection of a new township were John 
Lundy and Richard Lundy, Jr. 

Here Richard was again active in organizing a new Society 
of Friends ; and as a result the Plumstead Preparative meeting 
was established as a branch of the Buckingham monthly meet- 
ing. By this we understand that the Friends living in the 
vicinity of Plumstead were still enrolled at Buckingham and 
constituted a part of that monthly meeting ; but that, in con 
sideration of their distance away they were permitted to hold 
meetings for worship at Plumstead in private dwellings at first 
until they grew strong enough to build a meeting-house. In 
1730 they bought a lot and put up a log meeting-house; the 
deed for the land is dated January the 19th, and the trustees 
named therein are Richard Lundy IL, William Michener, 
Josiah Dyer and Joseph Dyer. At a monthly meeting held on 
7th of II month, 1728-9, Josiah Dyer and Ehester Browne 
declared their intentions of marriage ; and the meeting 
appointed William Michenor and Richard Lundy [IL], Junior, 
to make inquiry into the s'd Josiah's clearness, which they did, 
and in due time reported "nothing to obstruct." On 4 of 4 
month, 1729, Richard Lundy [IL], Jr., made a complaint 
before the Falls Monthly Meeting against a member for detain- 
ing a just debt; and two months later, Richard was left to his 
liberty to recover his money as the law directs. 

The statements copied below are taken from the records of 
the Monthly Meeting : 
5th of 3 mo., 1735, at Buckingham. 

"Richard Lundy [IL], Junior, requested a certificate for 
himself, wife, and family to Gwynodd Monthly Meeting in 
order to join themselves thereto." 
6th of 8 mo., 1735. 

"This meeting appoints Cephas Child to serve as an Elder in 
the place of Richard Lundy, for Plumstead Meeting. At this 


meeting those friends that were appointed to inquire into 
Richard Lundy's clearance report that they find nothing to 
hinder his having a certificate ; they also brought one according 
to the order of the meeting which was read and ordered to be 
signed by the clerk in behalf of the meeting." 
3rd of 9 mo., 1735. 

"This meeting appoints Lawrence Pearson and Joseph 
Brown as overseers in room of Richard Lundy and William 
Michenor for Plumstead Meeting." 

Richard Lundy IL and his family seem to have lived in Berks 
county for ten years. 

Their home is said to have been at Maiden Creek, which is 
about ten miles north of the city of Reading and about midway 
between the rivers Delaware and Susquehanna. Maiden Creek 
is the name of a village, of a township and of a stream of water. 

Those members of Friends' Society who lived at Maiden 
Creek were at first under the jurisdiction of the Gwynedd 
Monthly Meeting in Montgomery county, Pa. ; but in 1737 the 
Exeter Monthly Meeting was established in Berks county, and 
Friends living at Maiden Creek were assigned to the new 

For more than sixty years, 1682-1744, the Quakers held con- 
trol of the Pennsylvania legislative assembly, and, of course, 
no military measures were taken, to protect the people against 
the Indians. This caused great dissatisfaction to the non- 
Quaker element of the population, who succeeded in electing a 
majority of the legislature, and in 1747 passed a law permitting 
volunteer military organizations to be formed. This first 
serious blow at Quaker predominance marks the year in which 
the Lundy households removed to New Jersey. 

During Fifth month, 1747, Richard Lundy IL removed from 
Berks county, Pa., and settled in the valley of the Request river, 
at the upper end of the Great Meadows, in what is now Alla- 
muchy township, Warren county, N. J. In his new home he 
was far away from any organized Society of Friends; and so 
his certificate of membership was addressed to a Friends' 
Society in Hunterdon county, N. J., a meeting which has borne 
during its long history three different official titles — Bethlehem, 
Kingwood and Quakertown. 

On 25 of 4 month, 1747, he had requested from the Exeter 
Monthly Meeting a certificate for himself and family to the 


Bethlehem Monthly Meeting, N. J. ; and the women's records 
of the same place and date show that Elizabeth Lundy had 
applied for a certificate to Bethlehem "jointly with her husband 
and children" ; and an entry on the Exeter minutes dated 30 of 
5 month, 1747, states that Elizabeth Lundy had removed with 
her husband to Bethlehem. Richard and Elizabeth and their 
minor children became members of the Bethlehem Meeting on 
presentation of their certificate on 8 of 8 month, 1747. Four 
of Richard and Elizabeth's children of mature age had pre- 
viously settled at the Great Meadows. 

At a Council of New Jersey held at Burlington 28 March, 
1749, Richard Lundy was nominated as a justice of the peace 
for the County of Morris, which was assented to by the Coun- 
cil. — N. J. Archives, Vol. XVL, page 91. 

On 8th of 4 month, 1749, Richard Lundy, Sr., was appointed 
an Elder of the meeting at Great Meadows by the Kingwood 
Monthly Meeting, N. J.. On 11 of 4 month, 1754, Josiah Dyer, 
Richard Lundy, Senior, and Samuel Schooley were appointed 
by the Kingwood Monthly Meeting to pay religious visits to 
the families of Friends belonging to Hardwick branch. 

There is a series of books, twelve in number, entitled Friends' 
Miscellany, the eighth volume of which, page 349, gives a short 
history of the Kingwood and Hardwick Monthly Meeting, 
wherein it is stated that Daniel Stanton and Joshua Emlen, two 
traveling Quaker preachers, visited Friends in those parts in 
1764, and that they had a large meeting at Kingwood to edifi- 
cation and comfort, and that they went "thence to Richard 
Lundy's at the Great Meadows and had a meeting at his house, 
where was a number of tender hearted youth and others." 

The patriarchal Richard was now nearing the close of a long 
and well-spent life, and his heart rejoiced when he saw the 
goodly number and promising character of his descendants, so 
many of whom had gathered there on this occasion for public 
worship. In the course of conversation, Richard spoke to 
Daniel Stanton and said, "I have seventy children and grand- 
children ; and some of them are valuable Friends." Zeal and 
devotion to his religion led Richard Lundy IL to accept all 
appointments to attend the meetings of his Society. The 
monthly meetings were held alternately at Kingwood (now 
Quakertown), and Hardwick, the quarterly meetings at Bur- 
lington, N. J. ; and the yearly meetings at Philadelphia. These 


were no light undertakings, considering the distances, the con- 
dition of the roads, and the modes of travehng in use at that 
time. . 

"Kingwood Monthly Meeting's Testimony concerning our 
ancient Friend and Elder Richard Lundy : 

"He was son of Richard and Jane Lundy of Bucks Co., Pa., 
Professors of the truth with us, born the 20th of the 3rd mo., 
1692. He was a man much esteemed amongst Friends and 
others, being of a meek and quiet spirit, exemplary in life and 
conversation and a pattern of plainness and simplicity, diligent 
in attending meetings for worship and discipline, duly observ- 
ing the hour appointed, and in contribution for the service 
thereof gave freely according to his ability. He often gave up 
to attend monthly, quarterly and yearly meetings with great 
willingness even in his declining years until the indisposition 
of his wife rendered that service impracticable. He was an 
affectionate husband, a tender father and a kind friend, punc- 
tual and just in his dealings among men, evidencing to the 
world that he was concerned to do to others as he would have 
them do to him. His house was freely opened for those who 
travelled in the work of the ministry whose company he greatly 
valued, and often cheerfully travelled with such as a guide to 
other meetings. 

He lived in the fear of the Lord and was much concerned 
that love and unity might be maintained among Friends, and 
deeply affected when anything of a contrary nature arose to 
obstruct it. In his last illness, which was but short, he entirely 
refused the help of any physician, signifying his resignation to 
the Divine will, whether in life or death, and continued in a 
patient frame of mind when sensible, till his departure, which 
was on the 28th of the 2nd mo., 1772, aged near eighty years; 
and though our loss is great, we are comforted in the hope that 
he is gone to inherit the crown immortal which is laid up for all 
those who love and fear the Lord. 

He was decently buried in Friends' burying ground at Hard- 
wick the 29th of the same, attended by a large number of 
Friends and others. 

Signed by order of said meeting at Hardwick the 13th day 
of the 8th mo., 1772. By 

Jacob Smith, Clerk."

In the preceding pages, I have arranged in chronological 
order and presented to the reader many passages gathered from 
Friends' records and from other trustworthy sources, relating 
to Richard Lundy L and Richard Lundy H. Especially to be 
prized are those extracts which bear witness to moral worth 
and religious character ; but even those which may seem at first 
to be unimportant serve at least one purpose exceedingly well — 
they enable us to locate our Lundy forefathers during their first 
century in America with a definiteness and exactness in regard 
to time and place that is very satisfactory. Anecdotes might 


impart interest to the narrative; but names and places and 
dates are the things that produce conviction and prove that the 
introductory sketches of the Lundy family have been deter- 
mined with historical certainty. 

The Children and Grandchildren of 
Richard Lundy II. and Elizabeth Large. 

There were five sons and four daughters. All were born in 
Bucks county, Pennsylvania, between the years 1715 and 1732. 
All had birthright membership in the Religious Society of 
Friends ; all finished their course and kept the faith. They all 
married ; and, with the possible exception of Margaret the 
youngest child, all left oft'spring and have numerous descend- 
ants living at the present time. They all settled in Warren 
county, New Jersey, between the years 1745 and 1748; this was 
before the French and Indian War, and Warren county was a 
part of Sussex. All continued to dwell there in the vicinity of 
Johnsonburg and Allamuchy, and all died there, except Martha 
(Lundy) Schooley, who, in 1759, removed to Newton only ten 
miles away.. Richard 111. died in 1756 at 41 years of age, 
Joseph in 1759 at 40 years, Margaret in 1766 at 34, Thomas in 
1773 or thereafter at 48 or more, Jacob in 1800 at 79, Samuel 
in 1 80 1 at 74, Martha in 1803 at 80, Mary in 1807 at 91, and 
Elizabeth in 181 1 at 81. Their average age was sixty-two 

How many grandchildren were there? 

A full and correct list of the names of all children born to 
each family has been obtained, except in the case of Joseph and 
of Margaret. Richard III. had eleven children, Mary eight, 
Jacob ten, Martha five, Thomas six, Samuel twelve, and Eliza- 
beth twelve, making a total of sixty-four grandchildren in these 
seven households. It is known with certainty that Joseph had 
at least one child, giving a total of sixty-five known grand- 

I. Richard Lundy III. was born 23 of 4th month, 1715; his 
death date is given at the bottom of the first page of the Hard- 
wick Record of Births in these words : "The above-named 
Richard Lundy Departed this Life the 7th of the nth Month, 
1757, and was Decently Buryed in Friends burying ground at 

He married Ann Willson at Maiden Creek, Pa., in 1739, and 


settled near Allamuchy, Warren county, N. J., in 1746. Ten of 
his eleven children grew to maturity; namely, Samuel, William, 
Amos, Sarah (Kester), Richard IV., Ann (Webster), 
Ebenezer, John, Eliezer, and Azariah. Samuel and William 
removed to Canada ; Samuel locating near Newmarket and 
William at Lundy's Lane ; Ebenezer and Eliezer settled in 
Bucks county. Pa. ; and Amos, Sarah, Richard IV., John, and 
the family of Azariah emigrated to Virginia. 

The names of all the descendants of Richard III., so far as 
it has been possible to trace and identify the same, have been 
classified in the accompanying genealogy under Group One. 

II. Mary Lundy was born 6 of 1 1 month, 1716. The first 
entry in the list of Burials kept by the Hardwick Society of 
Friends states that "Mary Willson, widow of Robert Willson, 
deceased, and lately residing in the Township of Independence, 
County of Sussex, N. J., died 3 month 4 day, 1807, at the age 
of ninety years, and was buried at Hardwick Meeting-house." 
Mary was an Elder in the Religious Society of Friends. She 
married Robert Willson at Buckingham, Pa., in 1734. They 
removed to Maiden Creek, Pa., in 1737, and thence to the great 
Meadows in Warren county, N. J., in 1747. Their homestead 
is still in the Willson name (1901). They had eight children, 
five of whom attained maturity and married ; namely, Ebenezer, 
Jonathan, Mary (Willets), Moses, and Martha (Widdifield). 
Their descendants are enumerated under Group Two. 

III. Joseph Lundy was born 24 of 4 month, 1719. There 
is reason to believe that he died in 1759. He married Susanna 
Hutton at Maiden Creek, Berks county, Pa., in 1743, and 
removed to Warren county, N. J., in 1745. Joseph and Susanna 
certainly had a son Enos of Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, and 
probably other children among whom may have been William 
of Newton, N. J., and Sarah (Carpenter) of Pennsylvania. In 
1758 a Joseph Lundy married Sarah Willson. It is possible 
that among Joseph's children were also Nancy Lundy, Cather- 
ine Lundy, and Hannah Lundy, who married Samuel Shotwell 
of Sussex county, N. J. For further information, see Group 

IV. Jacob Lundy was born 15 of 6 month, 1721. An old 
entry made on the inside of the first cover-leaf of the Hardwick 
Record of Births, opposite the entry of his birth date, states 
that "Jacob Lundy departed this Life the 17th day of the ist 


Month, 1800, and was Decently buryed in Friends Burying 
ground at Hardwick the i8th of the same." He removed from 
Maiden Creek, Pa., to Warren county, N. J., in 1745. He 
married Mary Willson in 1748. Four of their ten children are 
known to have married and left descendants ; namely, Jacob H., 
Mary (Schmuck), Jonathan, and Deborah (Dennis) ; consult 
Group Four. 

V. Martha Lundy was born i of 6 month, 1723. An entry 
in an old Bible now in the possession of Mr. Benjamin D. 
Schooley of Newton, N. J., states that "Martha Schooley, wife

seventh month eighteen hund  1 and three, and died on the 
eleventh day of the ninth mont'. following. Age eighty years 
and about one month." Entry number 17 in the Hardwick 
Record of Burials says that "Martha Schooley, daughter of 
Richard Lundy. and a late resident of Sussex county, N. J., died 
9th Month, the eleventh, 1803, and was buried at Newton." 
Martha married Benjamin Schooley in 1755 and settled at New- 
ton, Sussex county, N. J., about 1760. Four of their five 
children married; namely, Elizabeth (White), Ann (Dennis), 
Joseph, and Martha (Phillips). Their descendants so far as 
known are given in Group Five. 

VI. Thomas Lundy was born 14 of 6 month, 1725. The 
date of his death has not been ascertained ; he was living in 
1772. In 1745 he removed from Maiden Creek, Pa., to Warren 
county. N. J., and in 1750 married Joanna Doan. They had 
six children, who married and left descendants ; namely, 
Susanna (Parker), ReiiberLof Columbia county. Pa., Ephraim 
of Lycoming county. Pa., Thomas II. of North Carolina, 
Joseph of Sussex county and of Rancocas, Burlington county, 
N. J., and Elizabeth ( Bunting) of Warren county, N. J. The 
descendants of Thomas and Joanna are named under Group 

VII. Samuel Lundy was born 13 of 12 month, 1727. Entry 
No. 19 in the Hardwick Record of Burials states that "Samuel 
Lundv, son of Richard Lundv, and latelv a resident of Sussex 
county, N. J., died on the 14th day of 2nd Month, 1801, at the 
age of seventy-four years, and was buried at Hardwick." He 
came to Warren county, X. J., with his parents in 1747. Sartiuel 
was a Judge of the Sussex County Court. He married ( i ) Ann 
Schooley in 1751, and (2) Sarah Willets in 1765. He had

(Lundy) of Allamuchy, N. J. ; and Amy (Adams) ; and Tamer, 
who died in infancy. The various lines of descent from Judge 
Samuel Lundy are recorded in Group Seven. 

VIII. Elizabeth Lundy was born lo of 3 month, 1730. 
Entry No. 8 in the Hardwick Record of Burials states that 
"Elizabeth Willson widow of Gabriel Willson, and lately a resi- 
dent of Sussex County, N. J., died 25th of 5th Month, 181 1, at 
the age of eighty-one years, and was buried at Hardwick." 
Elizabeth married Gabriel Willson I. in 1748; they settled on 
the great meadows near Allamuchy, Warren county, N. J., and 
had twelve children, eight of whom grew to maturity and 
married; namely, Charity (Willets) of North Carolina, Eliza- 
beth (Schooley) of North Carolina, Robert of Kentucky, Daniel 
of Welland county, Ontario, Canada, Gabriel II. ; Ann ( Vliet) ; 
Jesse of Welland county, Ontario, Canada; and Jeremiah of 
Indiana. Elizabeth (Lundy) Willson's descendants constitute 
Group Eight. 

IX. Margaret Lundy was born 14 of 12 month, 1732, "and 
Departed this Life the — day of the 4th month, 1776, and was 
Decently buryed in Friends Burying ground at Hardwick" ; the 
words in quotation marks are from the first page of the Hard- 
wick Record of Births. She married John Willson, who was 
born 13 of 12 month, 1723, and who had removed from Maiden 
Creek, Pa., to New Jersey in 1745. Their marriage is recorded 
in the Kingwood minutes under date of nth day of 8th month, 
1750. 4^Jo- record of a«y- children has been found. I copied the 
following from PVills, Liber. 14, page 409, in the office of the 
Secretary of State at Trenton, N. J. : 

"Samuel Lundy's Account." 

"Be it remembered that the account of Samuel Lundy, execu- 
tor of John Willson, deceased, was settled and approved of 
before Robert Burchan, surrogate, and a quietus issued under 
the prerogative seal by which it appears there is remaining in 
h s hands a balance of two hundred twenty-six pounds, four- 
teen, and seven pence. Dated the 2y of November, 1771. 
Chas. Pettit, Reg." 



It may be remarked that four of the children of Richard and 
EHzabeth (Large) Lundy married four of the children of 
Samuel and Esther (Overton) Willson ; to wit, Richard Lundy 
IIL married Ann Willson, Mary Lundy married Robert Will- 
son, Elizabeth Lundy married Gabriel Willson. and Margaret 
Lundy married John Willson ; and it may be observed further 
that a sister and brother of this same Lundy household married 
a brother and sister of the Schooley family ; to wit, Martha 
Lundy married Benjamin Schooley and Samuel Lundy married 
Ann Schooley, children of Samuel and Avis (HoUoway) 

King Philip's War marks the coming of the Lundy's ; the 
Revolutionary War marks the dispersal of the Lundy's. For 
one century the Lundy kith and kin clung together. During 
the last quarter of that century, 1746- 1776, they all resided in 
New Jersey, in the valley of the Pequest river, within a radius 
of a few miles of the Friends' Meeting-house ; they knew each 
other personally, and every father and mother of them could 
have told the exact relationship existing between all the house- 
holds. But since that time, it has been "scatter, scatter, scatter." 
From Warren county, their last united home, they have gone 
north and south and west. Yet notwithstanding these con- 
tinual losses by removal, the Lundy name has never ceased to 
be a familiar one tn the old Quaker settlement on the Pequest. 

In reading the documents of colonial times, it is important to 
bear in mind the changes that have been made in the boundaries 
of political divisions by the formation of new counties and 
townships. Hunterdon county was erected in 171 3, and origi- 
nally included Sussex and Warren ; Morris was erected in 1738- 
9, and included Sussex and Warren ; Sussex was organized in 
1753, and included Warren, which was not separated from 
Sussex until 1824. The old township of Hard wick was erected 
by royal patent about 1713. Portion after portion has been cut 
off until the present township of Hardwick is only a remote 
corner of the wide area originally included under that ancient 
name. Independence was organized in 1782; and from Inde- 
pendence the borough of Hackettstown was cut off in 1853 ^"^ 
Allamuchy in 1873. Three other townships have been taken 
from Hardwick; namely. Green and Stillwater in 1824, and 
Frelinghuysen in 1848. Hardwick Patent has been the mother 
of townships.

The Pequest Valley. 

There is in the eastern part of North America a long, con- 
tinuous, trough-Hke depression called the Great Appalachian 
Valley, beginning at Quebec in Canada and extending south- 
ward to the State of Alabama. It is one and the same valley 
throughout, although known in different sections of the 
country by various local names ; thus in Canada it is called the 
valley of the Sorel River, in Vermont the valley of Lake Cham- 
plain, in New York the valley of the Hudson River (as far 
south as Newbergh), in Pennsylvania the Cumberland Valley, 
in Virginia the Shenandoah valley, and further southward the 
valley of the East Tennessee River. That part of this great 
depression which crosses New Jersey is forty miles long and 
twelve miles wide, and is called the Kittatinny Valley. It is 
bounded on the northwest by the Kittatinny Mountain, which 
extends from New York State to the Delaware Water Gap and 
rises from 1,500 to 1,800 feet above the level of the sea; and on 
the southeast by the AUamuchy Mountain, which rises to the 
height of 1,250 feet. The basin lying between these two parallel 
ranges is 600 feet below their crests ; but it does not answer at 
all to the conventional idea of a river valley, for the surface is 
broken by numerous outcrops of limestone forming knolls from 
40 to 80 feet high, which impart to it a rough, mountainous 

The western end of the Kittatinny valley is drained into the 
Delaware river by two parallel streams — the Paulins Kill, 36 
miles long, flowing from Augusta to Columbia, and having a 
drainage area of 177 square miles; and the Pequest river, 32 
miles long, flowing from Pinkneyville to Belvidere and having 
an area of 158 square miles. Each stream has its own railroad 
line ; the New York, Susquehanna and Western runs along the 
Kill ; the Lehigh and Hudson runs along the Pequest. These 
two subvalleys are separated by a long rolling slate plateau, 300 
feet high, running lengthwise through the middle of the valley 
and fitly named from its structure the Ridge. The views from 
the Ridge are magnificent ; in one direction you look across the 
valley of the Pequest and see the AUamuchy Mountain ; in the 
opposite direction, you look across the valley of the Paulins 
Kill and see the Kittatinny Mountain with its level crest 
notched by that wonderfiH work of nature, the Delaware Water

I have mentioned the rugged character of the Kittatinny 
valley ; there is, however, one large level tract along the 
Pequest where the Jenny Jump, an isolated mass of Archaean 
rock 1,140 feet high, encroaches on the valley and makes it 
narrow, and right here across the narrow part lies a heavy dam 
of drift, a stiff clay intermixed with bowlders, dumped there, if 
we can credit the fairy tales of science, as a moraine by retreat- 
ing glaciers during the Age of Ice. This obstacle caused the 
river to backwater, forming a shallow lake four miles long and 
two miles wide, which, in the course of geological time, was 
tilled with sediment and other washed-in material. This is the 
Great Meadows, called so in colonial days, but now more dis- 
tinctively named the Pequest Meadows. It is really a low 
«'wamp of peat-bogs and timber, too wet for cultivation and 
...ibject to overflow by freshets, the sluggish stream not being 
able to carry ofif the water poured into it so rapidly at times 
from the neighboring hillsides. But the land at the upper end 
of the swamp, being somewhat more elevated, makes choice 
farms with upland for grain and excellent meadows for hay 
and pasture. A straight line joining Johnsonburg and Alla- 
muchy marks the upper edge of the Pequest Meadows, and 
there along the river is where the Quakers made their settle- 
ment and built their meeting-house. 

By the courtesy of the State Geologist of New Jersey, I am 
able to insert in this book a picture of the Pequest valley. The 
entire Quaker settlement is shown, liut it does not take up the 
whole picture; the settlement occupies one-third of the picture, 
tht • rt to the right. The right edge of the picture is a line 
pas g near Johnsonburg and the Southtown school-house ; 
the left edge includes Marshall Hibler's dwelling house, which 
is plainly visible, and extends some distance above the village 
of Andover. 

Start from Johnsonburg and climb the long high hill till you 
reach the ridge road on the county line separating Sussex and 
Warren. Cross the green so that the Yellow Frame Church 
does not obstruct the view and gaze to the southeast. You are 
looking over a vallev 400 feet deep and 6 miles wide. The 
horizon is bounded by a waving line formed by the rounded 
crests of the AUamuchy Mountain ; you will notice that the 
snow-covered fields indicating cultivation spread over the 
flanks of the mountain and in some places creep far up toward 


the summit. A road branching off at the church turns down 
the hill and passes a large oak-tree, the tips of the branches of 
which reach above the sky-line. 

Observe the row of nine apple-trees, beyond the fence, in 
the next field ; over them see two fields partly mowed. The 
snow has settled down into the standing stubble which causes 
the unmowed portion to appear dark in strong contrast with its 
belt of pure white. The public road already mentioned, which 
re-appears and separates those two partly-mown fields, leads 
over the hill to Greensville, a village two and a half miles from 
the Yellow Frame, and a half mile beyond the crest of the hill. 
Near the village, Benjamin Lundy, the philanthropist, was born 
and bred. The farm buildings on the old estate of Job J. Shaw, 
now William Vough's. are plainly visible in the field to the 
right; and the minute lines on the further edge of the same 
field indicate a peach orchard. Along the mountain and above 
the partly-mown field to the left of the Greenville road, and 
marked in the picture by a dark patch a half inch long, may be 
seen the farm now owned and occupied by Henry Nelson and 
Rhoda (Decker) Lundy. This tract of timber which shows 
heavy and dark in the right of the picture and comparatively 
near the Yellow Frame is the Big Wood that extends from 
Johnsonburg to Dark Moon. The Tranquility Church is 
exactly in the middle of the picture from right to left; the 
gleam of the spire, which is easily seen by the eye from this 
hill, has left its impress on only a few of the pictures. The 
course of the Pequest river is clearly indicated by a narrow 
dark line nearly continuous extending from left to right across 
the entire picture, the dark line being caused by the trees and 
bushes along the banks of the stream. The little village of 
Allamuchy nestles at the foot of the distant mountain. It is 
six miles from where we are standing, and its position is shown 
on the plate by a dark patch one and a quarter inches from the 
top of the picture and three and three-eighths inches from the 
right edge. The tall cedar-trees that fringe the road that leads 
from Allamuchy upward and to the right across the mountain 
to Hackettstown are plainly indicated by a dark streak. The 
meeting-house of the Hardwick Society of Friends cannot be 
seen, but it stands close to the Pequest river and almost exactly 
in line between the Yellow Frame Church and Allamuchy. 
The level character of the land in the Quaker settlement pre- 


sents no salient features for description. There is one thing 
more I wish to point out, and that is the sky-field. It looks 
like a piece of the sky, for it shows white and rests so high on 
the very top of the mountain. It is to the right of the oak 
limb, and one-fourth inch from the right-hand edge of the 
picture. That is not a patch of sky notching down into the 
mountain ; it is a distinctive and ever-present feature of the 
landscape as viewed from the valley ; it faces the dwelling of 
Judge Samuel Lundy and of George and Esther Lundy. Many 
a Willson and many a Lundy would recognize that high field 
as the land-mark of their childhood home, seen hundreds of 
times, clothed in green during spring-time and summer, but in 
winter snow-clad. And there it lies in the picture sparkling 
on the distant mountain top as natural as life. 

The Hardwick Society of Friends. 

Public meetings for the worship of God were held at the 
Great Meadows in Warren county, N. J., as early as July, 1745. 
These meetings were held at private houses. The members of 
Friends' Society who dwelt at the Meadows had on 13th of 3 
month, 1745, made a request to the Kingwood Monthly Meet- 
ing for permission to hold such meetings every first day of each 
week ; and their request was granted on the eighth of fifth 
month (July), and Samuel Willson, Junior, was appointed by 
the Kingwood Meeting to serve as an overseer at the Hard- 
wick particular Meeting. Liberty to hold a meeting for wor- 
ship on the Fourth day of every week was obtained on i6th of 
9th month, 1747. A public Meeting-house was needed, and 
steps were taken for the erection of one, but Friends became 
divided on the question as to where it should be located. This 
led to an appeal to the Kingwood meeting, which appointed a 
committee consisting of Jeremiah Williams, Joseph King, Sr,, 
Joseph Webster, Joseph King, Jr., and William King to assist 
Friends at the Meadows in fixing upon a place for a building; 
to which committee there were afterward added John Emley, 
Peter Schmuck, Jacob Simcock, and William Emley. This 
committee made a report to the Kingwood Meeting on 12 of 
2nd month, 1750, and gave it as their opinion and judgment 
that the Meeting-house should be built at the same place where 
the graveyard had been made there. Those Friends who were 


dissatisfied with this decision carried the case by appeal to the 
Quarterly Meeting, but without result ; for on 17th of 7th 
month, 1750, it was reported to Kingwood by an extract from 
the minutes of the Quarterly Meeting that the judgment of the 
committee had been confirmed. It would seem that a log meet- 
ing-house was soon erected ; and there can be little doubt that 
it was located near Friends' graveyard in Allamuchy township. 
A deed for land was given in 1752 by Richard Penn "for a 
Friends' meeting-house forever." This Richard was a grand- 
son of William Penn. It is of record in the office of the West 
Jersey Proprietors at Burlington that on March 10, 1714-15, a 
land-warrant was issued to William Penn for Lot ye 50th, that 
said lot was laid out by John Reading, an authorized surveyor, 
and that the legal transfer of the land from the Proprietors to 
William Penn was completed by the return of the warrant and 
survey to the office on May 2.y, 171 5. The said lot is described 
as lying "on both sides of the Paquaessing river upon an Indian 
path which leads from Allamuchakohin to Pahukqualong," 
which, when modernized, becomes "on both sides of the 
Pequest river upon an Indian path which leads from Allamuchy 
to Pahaquarry." The public road from Allamuchy to Johnson- 
burg follows the ancient Indian path mentioned in William 
Penn's land- warrant ; and this was only a short section in the 
great trail, or Indian path, along which the Mincy Indians 
traveled to and fro in their annual excursions to Long Branch 
on the New Jersey coast, which, even before the coming of the 
white man, was a popular summer resort. The trail crossed the 
Kittatinny mountain at Wind Gap, passed through Marksboro, 
Johnsonburg, Allamuchy, and Hackettstown, and continued 
due southeast to the ocean, the whole distane^e from the Dela- 
ware to the sea, being seventy-five miles as the bird flies. The 
Quaker meeting-house and burying-ground are at the exact 
spot where the Indian trail crossed the Pequest river. 

The privilege of holding a Preparative Meeting at Hard- 
wick was granted on 13 of 5 month, 1756, which meeting was 
to b€ held every Fourth Day of the week next but one before 
every Monthly Meeting, and a report of the proceedings therein 
was to be made to the Kingwood Meeting if required. During 
1757 Hard wick made several requests to Kingwood for the 
liberty to hold a youths' meeting. On 10 of 5 month, 1757, 
Hardwick Friends requested that the Monthly Meeting be held 


at their place sometimes ; and their request having been granted, 
it was arranged that the Monthly Meeting should be held at 
Hardwick every other month and continue so till Friends may 
see cause to order it otherwise. Accordingly the first Quarterly 
Meeting ever held in Warren county was held at Hardwick 
Meeting-house in 6th month, 1759, N. S. 

The Hardwick Society was now in its youthful vigor. The 
petty persecutions it had endured during the French and Indian 
War because of refusal to train for military service had only 
strengthened it. The regular coming of visitors from Hunter- 
don county to attend the Quarterly Meeting naturally excited 
a desire for a larger and better meeting-house. The matter 
was talked over and finally brought liefore the Quarterly Meet- 
ing in the form of a proposition to rebuild the Hardwick Meet- 
ing-house. A committee was appointed, and the sum of 80 
pounds was raised by subscription at Hardwick and Kingwood. 
On 10 of 2 month, 1763, Peter Schmuck and Jacob Lundy were 
named as additional members of that committee ; and it was 
agreed that said house should be 40 feet long and 25 feet wide 
in the clear and one story high. The new building was finished 
in 1764. 

Hardwick was separated from Kingwood and authorized as 
a distinct Monthly Meeting on 21 of i month, 1797; the first 
minutes are dated the first day of sixth month the same year. 
The following Elders were continued in office : William Shot- 
well, Ebenezer Willson, George Lundy, Jacob Lundy, Jr., 
Mercy Brotherton, Mary Willson, Jehoaden Willson, and 
Esther Lundy. George Lundy had been an Overseer in the 
Kingwood Meeting since 1785. After the unhappy contro- 
versy of ,1827 which rent in twain the Society of Friends, the 
Hardwick Monthly Meeting entered into fellowship with the 
branch commonly called Hicksite. The number of members 
was steadily diminished by a stream of removals to Pennsyl- 
vania, Virginia, New York, Ohio, and Canada. The last meet- 
ing at the Hardwick Meeting-house was held on 2nd day of 
2nd month, 1854; and the Society was laid down at a meeting 
held on 9th day of 6th month, 1855, in the Mendham Meeting- 
house, in Randolph township, Morris county, N. J. The 
records were given to the Plainfield Society in Union county, 
N. J.. The meeting-house and the adjoining land was sold in 
1865 to Jesse Adams ; the burying-ground is still owned by the 


Society and is visited yearly by a committee of Friends from 
Plainfield. The meeting-house itself was torn down in 1866 
and a school-house erected on the foundations. The foregoing 
account of the Hardwick Society of Friends until its separation 
from Kingwood is based almost entirely on the minutes of the 
Kingwood Monthly Meeting ; I am indebted for many of the 
items to the kindness of Mary (Willson) Vail of Quakertown, 
N. J., since deceased, but the notes furnished by her have been 
supplemented by data taken from The Kingwood Records as 
edited by Prof. J. W. Moore, Lafayette College, Easton, Pa., 
and published in The Jcrscyiiian by Mr. H. E. Deats of Flem- 
ington, N. J. 


The following account of the homesteads in the Quaker Set- 
tlement with reminiscences of the Hardwick Society of Friends 
has been furnished to me by Mrs. Richard T. Armstrong: 

'T will describe," writes she, "the meeting-house of the 
Hardwick Society of Friends. It was built of dark-colored 
limestone ; it was a low solid-looking structure forty feet by 
twenty-five on the inside, with a chimney at the west end and 
two front doors facing the south. It stood on elevated ground 
in the midst of a natural grove three acres in extent. A short 
distance east of the meeting-house and almost in line with it, 
there were substantial sheds for the horses to be tied in. The 
road coming from Johnsonburg forks at the corner of the 
woods ; one branch passes straight ahead along the western side 
of the lot, and the other, which leads to Allamuchy, turns sharp 
to the left and bounds the grove on the north. Barring the 
drive-ways, the grounds were well in with natural grass, free 
from straggling under-brush, and well shaded by the primitive 
forest trees. The beautiful greensward, the dense shade, the 
songs of the birds and the chirrup of the squirrels made it a 
cool and pleasant retreat. 

"On the north side of the building there was a small door, 
which opened into the east-room ; this door was never used 
for going in or out, but always stood open in hot weather 
during meeting-time for the purpose of ventilation, there being 
no window on that side of the building. The entrance doors, 
as I have said, were on the south side, one near the middle of 
each room ; these doors were made of narrow boards fitted 


diagonally, a peculiarity which rendered them noticeable and 
always attracted the attention of passers-by as long as the 
meeting-house remained standing. 

"The interior was divided into two apartments by a partition 
so arranged that it could be removed and the two rooms thrown 
into one. This partition was paneled, and the upper part could 
be unfastened at the top and slid down on one side of the 
stationary part below which stood two and a half or three feet 
above the tioor. This arrangement for dividing the house was 
a matter of economy as well as comfort, because in cold weather 
only one room was needed and only that part had to be warmed. 
In the west room there was a fireplace and chimney ; in the east 
room there was a large ten-plate stove. The movable partition 
was in three parts ; one of these was on the elevation, and the 
rest of it had to be in two pieces, because there was a door con- 
necting the two rooms. On special occasions when the parti- 
tions had been taken down, the door itself was removed for 
the time, but the posts were stationary. The seats were plain 
benches about eight feet long ; some of them had home-made 
cushions. The supports resting on the floor reached eight or 
ten inches above the seats at the ends, having a circular hole 
cut in each, rounding up on the front, and narrowing above to 
the back-rest, which was fastened across rather high. A few 
inches above the floor another narrow strip of board ran parallel 
to the seat, both front and back, which was convenient for the 
little folks to rest their feet on. The woodwork throughout was 
unpainted, but scrupulously clean. 

"On the north side and extending the entire length of the 
building, there was an elevated platform two steps up and about 
five feet wide. This was the pulpit. A seat along the wall, a 
railing in front about the right height for a person to put his 
hand on when speaking, a board-front reaching from the floor 
to the railing, a low bench along the front side convenient for 
the speaker to kneel on in prayer — these constituted the outfit 
for the speaker's accommodation. There was an aisle from 
each door, and each aisle ended in the front of each room at a 
stair of two low steps up to the speaker's platform ; and the 
seats were so arranged with their ends along the aisle and their 
backs toward the door that the listeners sat facing the platform. 

"The stove in the east room was close to the platform. One 
seat was placed next to the sliding partition and facing the 


Stove; the front seats being movable, were sometimes turned 
at right angles to the regular row ; and thus the people could sit 
facing the stove on both sides of it and in front of it, a good 
arrangement in cold weather. It was a large stove, between 
three and four feet high at least ; and it must have taken a stick 
three feet long, if not longer. While writing these lines, I 
seem to hear the ticking of that stove, which, as it cooled down 
or grew hotter by turns, gave out loud, clear, clock-like ticks 
constantly. Wood for use during service lay under the stove 
and by it ; but there was seldom any need to fix the fire during 
the time of worship, for the sexton understood his business well 
and had such a bed of hot coals that it kept the room warm 
throughout with little trouble. Many times have I sat on the 
bench by the stove with my back toward the partition, and 
warmed my feet and burned my face, and then, when thor- 
oughly wanned, have moved to the seat facing the front of the 
stove. In cold weather we did not venture to go very far from 
the stove. In the west room I always sat on the front seats 
back of the inner door. 

"Meetings for worship were usually held in the east room; 
the men always entered the house by the door of the east room ; 
and the women always entered by the west door and passed 
through that apartment into the east room. When both rooms 
were used, the women always sat in the room where the fire- 
place was. The older Friends generally sat on the front side- 
seats facing the stove, and the young people would sit farther 
back, so that if I looked up the aged members were the only 
ones I could see. When the old men on the front seats began 
to shake hands together, then we knew that the meeting was 
dismissed. On special occasions when the church would be 
filled and the partition removed, the older members always sat 
on the platform with the speakers, leaving the benches below 
for visitors. At these large gatherings, the women always 
spoke from the platform in the west room and the men from the 
platform in the east room. All the speakers were apt to lay 
their hands on the railing while they spoke; and those who 
prayed aloud generally knelt on the foot-benches; and better 
prayers have I never heard than I have in that old Quaker meet- 
ing-house, and some of the best speakers I ever heard I heard 
there also. 

"Once in a great while in the summer time, when the wor- 

OUaker meeting. 43 

shipers were sitting there so quiet and still with the doors wide 
open, a little squirrel would come tripping in, and, surprised at 
finding occupants, would quickly in its own dialect offer apology 
for its intrusion and make off again in a hurry. I was sure to 
look up as soon as I felt I dare at some of the dear old Quaker 
men, and I was just as sure to find one of them looking at me. 

"Meetings for worship were held twice a week, on Sunday 
and again on Wednesday or Thursday, or to express it in 
Friends' language, on First day and on Fourth or Fifth 
day. One of the mid-week meetings was termed the 
Monthly Meeting ; during the other weeks of the month, 
regular worship was held on the other day from what 
the Monthly Meeting was. Quarterly Meeting was held 
at Shrewsbury in May, at Rahway in summer, at 
Plainfield in the fall, and at Hardwick in the winter. 
My father's house was filled to overflowing at such times. The 
Friends from the other societies came to attend the meetings, 
which were continued during the greater part of the week, and 
were entertained among the members of the Hardwick society. 
My father's house seems to have been built with the purpose 
in view of entertaining large companies for days, it having five 
spare sleeping rooms ever ready for friends that might favor 
us with a visit, and when needed two more could be made to do 
duty with little change ; in fact, all the rooms could be con- 
verted into sleeping rooms with little trouble except the two 
largest, which were parlor and dining room ; for a second house 
with four large rooms stood but a few feet from the dweUing, 
and could be made to serve for kitchen and cook-house and for 
all the other work that was necessary at times like those. How 
we all enjoyed those days with the dear old Friends, who were 
accompanied by the younger members of their families. Among 
those I more particularly remember were Joseph La Fetra and 
his wife and daughters, especially his daughter Elizabeth only 
recently deceased ; John Borden and his wife Miriam and their 
adopted son, John W. Borden, who died years ago; and Thomas 
Borden and his wife Susan. 

"My father and mother attended Quarterly Meeting at 
Shrewsbury in the spring of 1849 ^^^ took me along. It was 
on this trip and at New Brunswick that I saw ships for the first 
time in my life ; as father drove through the town, I could look 
down each cross street and see the ships on the Raritan river. 


I was then thirteen years of age. It was a two days' journey. 
By starting early they reached Plainfield the first day, where 
they were entertained by Friends. Re-enforced by a number 
of Friends from that place, they set out early the next morning 
and drove to the homes of other Friends near Shrewsbury ; by 
noon the next day there would be several wagons in company, 
and they all stopped at the sand tavern, as we called it, from the 
fact that the hotel parlor was sprinkled artistically with white 
sand, it being in the pine lands where there was nothing but 
pine trees and sand for miles and miles. The night we reached 
our destination we stopped at Thomas Borden's, whose house 
was at Deal Beach, his being one of a few large houses that 
were filled with boarders during the summer season. They 
woke me early in the morning in time to go out on the porch 
on the east side of the third story of their house to see the sun 
rise out of the ocean, the first time I had ever gazed upon that 
watery waste. We attended all the sessions of the Quarterly 
Meeting. One night we stayed at John Borden's; he had just 
completed a new frame house, the yard yet to be levelled. We 
also stopped at Joseph La Fetra's a part of the time ; the visit- 
ing delegates being entertained at the homes of the different 

"On our return the traveling Friends were in company 
through the pines. A stranger was in danger of getting lost; 
it was difihcult to trace one's way over the loose soil because the 
scant verdure on being driven over a few times became stirred 
into the sand, which filled in the ruts behind the passing wheels 
so that no track was left. A woodroad could not be distin- 
guished from the main highway, except by those who were 
familiar with the country. While at the sand tavern on our 
return, a number of the younger members of the company 
wished to walk on in advance and let the wagons overtake them. 
After being carefully directed, we started, but before we were 
out of sight, one of the Friends who were hitching up the 
teams had to run to overtake us and shout to us that we had 
taken the wrong road. The soft, deep sand here in the pines 
quickly wearied our horses and made them break out into a 
dripping sweat, for they were accustomed to solid roads ; on the 
other hand when Friends from Shrewsbury came to Hardwick 
to attend Quarterly Meeting, our steep hills caused their horses 
to fret and worry. 


"The Hardwick meeting-house was torn down to the foun- 
dation in 1866 by a gathering of neighbors, and rebuik for a 
school-house and made two stories high so as to have a Sunday- 
school room above. The nails in the woodwork had been made 
by hand and had large flat heads more than an inch broad ; and 
the mortar was found to be so firm and strong that the stones 
broke before the mortar holding them together would give way. 
The date-stone incut with the year 1764 and showing that the 
building was more than a century old, was removed from the 
chimney and carefully reset in the south-side foundation." 

"Among the old members of the Hardwick Society were 
George and Levi Lundy and their wives, Samuel Laing and his 
wife Edith, John Schmuck, Ebenezer Willson, Mordecai Will- 
son, Gabriel Willson and his wife Grace, Joseph Adams and 
his wife Amy, Abner Willson and his wife Elizabeth, and the 
sons and daughters of many of these, among whom I may men- 
tion James Willson and his wife Amy, Henry Willson and his 
wife Elizabeth, Christopher Schmuck and his wife Elizabeth, 
and Abner Willson's daughters, Mercy and Belinda, who mar- 
ried the brothers Alfred and Joel Buckley, and also Samuel 
Hoey and his wife Sarah and their daughter Mary." 

"When Richard Lundy H. and his wife Elizabeth Large 
came to New Jersey, they took up land lying on both sides of 
the Pequest river and extending from that river across Pine 
Run to Bear creek. He divided this property into two farms ; 
the one along the Pequest he deeded to his son Jacob Lundy ; 
the other he left by will to his son Judge Samuel Lundy. 
Jacob's share of the old estate is still in the Lundy name and is 
occupied by Eli Vought Lundy. The old stone dwelling is 
inscribed J L 1783, showing that it was built in the year 1783 
by Jonathan Lundy. The property has been owned successively 
by Richard H., by Jacob, by Jonathan, by Eli, and now by Eli's 
grandson, Eli Vought Lundy." 

"In 1780, Judge Samuel Lundy built a stone dwelling-house 
along Pine Run on his share of the old plantation. When the 
Judge died in 1801, he left the farm by will to his son Samuel 
Lundy, Jr., who, in 1802. married Elizabeth Shotwell and dwelt 
on the homestead until 1816. Joseph Adams of Delaware, 
Knowlton township, had married Amy Lundy, the youngest 
sister of Samuel, Jr. Joseph had decided to remove to New 
York State, and with this purpose in view he had purchased 




Sussex cou/vry

some land near Waterloo in Wayne county, N. Y. In the spring 
of 1816, he started in a wagon with his family for his new home. 
Leaving Knowlton, he stopped the first night in the Quaker 
settlement at the house of his brother-in-law, Samuel Lundy, 
Jr. In the morning they could not proceed because of illness. 
The result of the entire matter was that Samuel Lundy, Jr., 
traded his homestead for Joseph's uncleared tract of land in 
Wayne county, packed up and started at once for his newly 
acquired possessions, leaving Joseph Adams permanently in the 
stone house where the intention had been to tarry but for a 
night. By this exchange of property, a large Lundy family was 
transplanted to the western part of New York State, and a large 
Adams family was located in the Quaker settlement. Since the 
death of Joseph Adams the farm has been owned by James 
Warbasse, Jesse Wilson, Sedgwick R. Reeder, and now by 
Sedgwick's son Ira." 

"Jesse Lundy, son of Judge Samuel Lundy, was a carpenter, 
and lived on a lot near the Southtown school-house. Jesse sold 
the lot and afterward removed to Canada. James Lundy, '' 
whose wife was Elizabeth Pettit, lived on the same lot before 
he went to Ohio. The lot was owned for a while by John Hill- 
man, but is now a part of the estate of George W. Lundy." 

"Levi Lundy, a brother of Jesse, lived farther south, on the 
edge of Tamarack swamp near the confluence of Bear creek and 
Pine Run. Levi sold the farm in his old age and removed to 
Wyandotte county, Ohio, with his married sons. Levi's place 
was afterward owned by Aaron Howell, son of Levi Howell. 
I have heard my father say that there once was a corduroy road 
extending from the end of Levi Lundy's lane to an island farm 
out in the swamp ; but this road was abandoned long ago. John 
Lundy, Levi's son, before he removed to Ohio, lived between 
Abner Willson's and Judge Samuel Lundy's, but on the 
opposite side of the road." 

"George Lundy, another son of Judge Samuel, married 
Esther W^illson. Their old homestead lies on both sides of the 
road leading toward Johnsonburg, and borders on Glover's 
pond. It was owned by their son David, who married Sarah 
Wildrick, and afterward by George Wildrick Lundy, a son of 
David and Sarah. The Southtown school-house stands on land 
donated from this estate." 

"Jonathan Willson lived at first on the farm of his father 


Ebenezer, near the Allamuchy station ; but he sold this and 
bought land at the foot of the Jenny Jump mountain, along 
Bear creek opposite Judge Samuel Lundy's. Jonathan left it to 
his son Lewis ; and it still remains in the family name. Abner 
and Elizabeth Bunting once lived at the same corner, on the 
opposite side of the road." 

"The homestead of Samuel and Edith (Lundy) Laing was 
about a mile and a half from Johnsonburg on the left hand side 
of the road leading to Alamuche. Their son, Joseph Chapman 
Laing, inherited the farm ; he married Phebe Ann Bunting, 
and had three daughters and a son Watson, who married Sarah 
Kennedy and left a son, George Irving Laing. The farm was 
eventually sold to Isaac Stickles and is now (1902) owned by 
Isaac's son John." 

"Ira K. Willson during the earlier part of his married life, 
lived between Johnsonburg and Samuel Laing's, over the hill 
from Dark Moon brook and the old stone dwelling-house of 
Dr. Samuel Kennedy." 

"Josiah Dyer, Jr., and his wife Rachel Schooley, settled at a 
very early day on the farm adjoining that of Samuel Laing. 
The Dyer farm was owned for many years by Cummins O. 
Harris, and has recently been purchased by Ford Staples." 

"Going from Samuel Laing's toward the meeting-house, we 
pass the houses of Joseph E. Dyer and Tobias Stillwell, and 
come to the property of Christian and Mary (Lundy) Schmuck, 
which passed to their son John, who married Martha Willets. 
The house stands elevated and on the right, with the other 
buildings across the road and below. John set ofif those fields 
which lie back from the road as a separate farm and willed it to 
the three children of his daughter, Sarah Hoey Schmuck, who 
had married Cummins O. Harris. This inner farm is now 
owned, but not occupied, by Levi Kittle. John's son Christian 
married Elizabeth Laing and settled some distance below Long 
Bridge, near Meadville school-house, where he farmed and ran 
a sawmill." 

"George Lundy, Junior, was the son of George and Esther 
(Willson) Lundy. He married Ruth Adams and settled near 
the Friends' meeting-house, on the road leading to Greensville. 
George died about 1824. When the children became of age, the 
farm was sold to William Hart, and afterward was owned by 
William's daughter Ellen (Hart) Craig, now deceased." 


"Adjoining the farm of George and Ruth stood the house 
buih and occupied by Samuel Lundy of Muncy, whose wife 
Sarah was a daughter of Judge Samuel Lundy. Muncy Samuel 
died in that house and was buried in Friends yard. Sarah was 
a great lover of flowers ; and she had all the varieties, old and 
new, known at that time. Her flower-garden was the admira- 
tion of the neighborhood. She rented one of her front rooms 
to a Mr. Loder, but reserved a large bed of pinks in front of the 
door ; and Mrs. Loder used to say to her, 'I get all the praise of 
those lovely flowers without having any of the care of them.' 

"Samuel Patterson and his wife Lucy lived between the 
meeting-house and the grave-yard." 

"Ebenezer Willson, son of Robert and Mary, married 
Jehoaden Schooley and lived during the latter part of his life 
on the first farm west of the Allamuchy station in a dwelling- 
house which stood a short distance from the point where the 
road winding up from the meadows joins the main road 
between Allamuchy and Johnsonburg. After Ebenezer's death, 
his son Jonathan sold the estate to the late George H. Ayers." 

"Robert and Mary (Lundy) Willson lived along the same 
road westward and nearer the Request river. I call this the 
Robert Willson homestead, for it was first owned by Robert 
and has always been owned and occupied by some of his 
descendants in the male line; he himself deeded it to his son 
Ebenezer on 22 day of 2 month, 1762 ; Ebenezer deeded it to his 
son David in January, 1822; and David to his son Amos on 
April I, 1842; and Amos's son John now has it." 

"At the junction of the three roads coming from Long 
Bridge, the meeting-house and Judge Lundy's was the Hoey 
lot, and here lived Samuel and Sarah Hoey and their widowed 
daughter Mary Shaw." 

"The home of James and Elsie (Smalley) Shotwell was on 
the road leading from Allamuchy to Long Bridge. Their 
stone dwelling-house bears the date 1770; it stands near the 
creamery and is in good repair. It was afterward owned by 
their son Jonathan and subsequently by Jonathan's daughter 
Emelissa, and now by Mr. J. C. Runyon." 

"Robert and Rhoda (Dell) Willson lived at Long Bridge 
near Allamuchy." 

"The Buckley homestead was in to the left of the road leading 
from Long Bridge to the Hoey lot ; it was a part of the early 


Lundy tract and was next owned by a Stevenson, who sold it 
to George Buckley ; it has since been owned by Silas Hibler, 
and is now owned by Sanford Hibler." 

"The homestead of Gabriel and Grace (Brotherton) Willson 
was on the road from the meeting-house to Long Bridge, lying 
on both sides of said road after turning to the right, say, half a 
mile south of the meeting-house, at a point where three roads 
meet. Moses Applegate lives there now. This land probably 
belonged to Gabriel's parents. Gabriel and Elizabeth (Lundy) 
Willson. After the death of Gabriel and Grace, the homestead 
was partitioned among their three sons — Enoch receiving 
98 acres on the south side of the road ; James receiving the same 
amount on the north side, and Henry, who was a weaver by 
trade, receiving only 40 acres at the parting of the roads." 

"Joseph Willson lived near Gabriel, a little eastward, at the 
bridge across the river. I think this Joseph was a brother of 
my grandmother, Esther (Willson) Lundy. Joseph's farm 
passed to his son James, who sold it and removed to New York 

"Abner Willson, son of Gabriel and Heziah (Decker) Will- 
son, married Elizabeth Lundy and lived on what is now the 
Samuel Drake farm. After Abner's death the place passed to 
his son Abijah ; and after Abijah's death, it was sold to Samuel 
Drake, whose wife is a great-grandchild of Abner Willson. 
The farm is a short distance northwest of the Hoey lot." 

"Jacob Lundy, son of Eli and Abigail (Dickerson) Lundy, 
now dwells on the east bank of Bear creek along the road lead- 
ing from Johnsonburg to Judge Samuel Lundy's." 

"Eli Willson married Elizabeth, daughter of Isaac and Ann 
(Large) Lundy. Eli's home was in the settlement on the road 
leading from Johnsonburg to Judge Samuel Lundy's. Eli's 
farm passed to his daughter Deborah, who had married 
Theodore F. Johnson ; after Deborah's death the farm was 
bought by John Roe, thus passing out of the family." 

"Alahlon Willson. son of Samuel Willson IH. and his wife, 
Deborah Collins, left the Quaker settlement in the year 1798 and 
bought land in Green township on its extreme edge toward 
Newton. His homestead was near the Big Spring and was 
west of Springdale on the road to Fredon; and there, after 
Mahlon's day, dwelt his son Obed, and there now dwells Obed's 
son Obed." 


"I must not omit to mention that there was a school near the 
Friends' grove; it was in the field west of the meeting-house, 
up in the corner, and nearly opposite the end of the road coming 
from Greensville past George and Ruth Lundy's. Every trace 
of the building has disappeared, even its foundations. Among 
the teachers were Betty Willson, Clarissa Chedister, Mary 
Atkinson ; I am told that these persons taught there previously 
to 1832 and that the building even then was old. Times were 
so hard during the Civil War and so much money had to be 
raised that no repairs were made if it could possibly be avoided ; 
and thus the building got out of repair ; and at the close of the 
war, it was deemed wise to abandon the old school-house and 
erect a new one on the site of the meeting-house, which had 
not been used for worship by Friends for ten or twelve years." 

Origin of Surnames. 

Every family name had a beginning ; there was a time and a 
place and a reason for its first use ; and it may be of interest to 
specify here briefly a few of the ways in which surnames origi- 

Many family names denote the trade or occupation of an 
ancestor ; thus if there were three men in the community, each 
bearing the baptismal name of John, they would, for the sake 
of distinction, be spoken of as John the miller, John the weaver, 
and John the mason ; and these descriptive terms would soon 
be shortened into John Miller, John Weaver, and John Mason. 
This is why we have so many Cooks and Bakers, so many 
Brewers and Shoemakers and Fishers and Hunters, so many 
Coopers, Carpenters, Painters, Sawyers, Turners, Potters, 
Skinners, Tanners, Thatchers, Taylors, Tylers, Smiths and 

There is a large group of names that indicate parentage. 
George, the son of William, was called George William's-son, 
which, by a natural change of stress, became George William- 
son. Enoch, the son of Richard, was in like manner called 
Enoch Richardson ; and in this way there were formed such 
names as Albertson, Anderson, Dixon, Edison, Morrison, Nel- 
son, Paterson, Thomson, Willson, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson 
and Harrison. 

Nicknames were common in all ranks of society, and so it 
happened that many epithets which were originally bestowed on 


individuals to describe some personal peculiarity have hardened 
into surnames ; to this class are to be assigned Little, Small, 
Large, Long, Short, Stout, Young, Rich, Poor, Quick, Gay, 
Sage, Wise, Hardy, Moody, Stark, Broadhead, Armstrong, 
Cruikshank, and Longfellow. Variations in complexion and in 
the color of hair or clothing have furnished the names of 
Brown, Black, Reed, White and Gray. , 

Common nouns denoting locality have formed a very prolific 
source of surnames, having been added to the baptismal names 
of individuals. If there were three men by the Christian name 
of John, one living near the ford and one in the lane, and the 
third along the marsh, they would naturally be spoken of among 
their neighbors as John Ford, John Lane, and John Marsh. An 
examination of the ancient tax-lists of an English village fur- 
nishes numerous illustrations ; for the names of the tax-payers 
are recorded after this fashion : Willilmus de Grene, Adam 
atte Hall, Ricardus atte Brigg, Ricardus atte Well, Johnannes 
del Hill, Jacobus under Wood, and Eduardus atte Water. 
Among the names of this origin are Park, Glen, Mount, Brook, 
Bank, Street, Down, Dell, Dale, Ridge, Peak, Mead, Lee, and 

Carlisle, Kent, and Lincoln may be cited as examples of 
family names that have been derived directly from the proper 
names of towns and parishes ; and here, too, belongs the end- 
less list of family names ending in -ham and -ton, meaning 
home and town, such as Cunningham, Burnham, Dunham, 
Durham, Markham, Pelham, and Windham, and Benton, 
Exton, Newton, Milton, Walton, Stockton, Hamilton, and 

Among the surnames that indicate official position are Butler, 
Page, Chamberlain, Porter, Bowman, Archer, Knight, Squire, 
Judge, Earl, Duke, Lord, Prince, King, Queen, Priest, Abbot, 
Bishop, and Pope ; some of these terms denote the actual rank 
of an ancestor ; others sometimes merely indicated employment 
in the service of a person of the rank named ; sometimes they 
were nicknames, pure and simple, based on some fancied resem- 
blance in appearance or character; and sometimes they were 
reminiscences of the theatrical part played by an ancestor in the 
outdoor pageantries once so popular in England. 

Some households bear tbe names of animals, such as Swan, 
Drake, Crane, Heron, Rook, Partridge, Pigeon, Finch, Hawk, 


Jay, and other birds ; and also Fox, Wolf, Lyon, Hare, Beaver, 
Hart, Roe, Hind, and Bull. It is probable that some of these 
were bestowed in the first place as nicknames, and that others 
were derived from the emblems painted on tavern signs or on 
business signs suspended out of shop windows; for in those 
days very few persons were able to read, and hence it was neces- 
sary for business men to render their shops conspicuous by the 
display of pictured sign boards. 

The meaning of many names is concealed by the fact that they 
are derived from words once in common use but now obsolete ; 
thus Tod meant a fox, Brock a badger. Pollard a cropped tree, 
Hatch a gate, Beck a brook, Foss a ditch, Shaw a thicket, Penn 
a hilltop. Worth a farm, Cobb, a harbor. Holmes a flat island, 
and Chase a hunting ground. 

Hunt is a shortened form of hunter ; Starr, of starling ; Gunn, 
of gunner ; Ball, of Baldwin ; Spark, of sparrow hawk ; and 
Norton and Sutton, of north-town and south-town. Payne is 
a mutilated form of pagan ; Snooks, of seven-oaks ; Summer, of 
summoner ; Foster, of forester ; Senkler, of St. Clair ; Collins, of 
St. Nicholas ; Dennis, of St. Dionysius. 

Hughes is from Hugh; Mills from Miles; Randall from 
Ralph ; and Davis from Davids. Borden means the den of 
boars, and Harden the den of hares. Ray, Rae and Wray are 
old forms of roe, a deer. Boone and Bunn are from the Latin 
word "bonus," meaning good. 

The Shoemakers made shoes ; the Websters wove ; the Wag- 
nors and the Wainwrights made wagons ; the Arkwrights made 
meal-chests ; the Playters made coats of mail ; and the Reeders 
gathered reeds and thatched houses. 

Diminutive suffixes are an element in some surnames. Elliot 
means little ElHs; Hewitt, httle Hugh; Emmet, little Emma; 
Willet and Wilcox and Wilkins, little Will ; Robins, little Rob- 
ert; and Dickens, little Dick. 

The illustrations thus far presented have been selected from 
the English language; it will be readily understood that the 
same principles apply to the origin of surnames among nations 
using other languages. The directory of any large city will 
furnish numerous examples of the family names of the Welsh, 
the Irish, the Swedes, the Dutch, the Germans, the French, the 
Spaniards, the Italians, the Poles, and the Russians. Many of 
these foreign names have a meaning, but not to our English 


ears. Pettit aiul Grant and Fort are of French origin, and 
mean little and grand and strong; Zimmerman is the German 
for carpenter ; and the descendants of an early Polish settler in 
New Jersey named Saberovveski now write their name Zabris- 
kie. Price and Bevan are contractions of the Welsh forms 
ap-Rice and ap-Evan, meaning son of Rice and son of Evan. 

In discussing the origin of surnames, it must be borne in 
mind that the same name as now pronounced and spelled may 
have sprung from several words radically distinct, and that 
each of these words may have been assigned for a diti'erent 
reason. This principle is well illustrated by the family name of 
Bell. Turning to the old records, we meet with "Walter le Bel" 
(that is, Walter the Fair), so called because of his beautiful 
complexion; and "Richard fil. Bell"" (that is, Richard the son 
of Isabel), so named from his widowed mother; and lastly, 
"John atte Bell,'" so designated because he dwelt at the Sign of 
the Bell. 

1 will now speak concerning the Lundy surname. House- 
holds bearing this name existed at an early day in England, 
Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, and France. 
This witle range of distribution makes it almost certain that 
the\ have descended from several different ancestors ; and con- 
sequently it is possible for the word Lundy to have several dif- 
ferent meanings. 

In the old Xorse language there was a word "lundi" which 
meant a puttin, a sea-bird that congregates in immense flocks on 
rocky coasts ; and it is said that the name was given to certain 
persons as a nickname. 

In England the word "lundy" was an adjective and meant 
"heavy, clumsy"" ; it became a descriptive surname. The adjec- 
tive "lundy"" is unknown in America, but it is still in use among 
the common people in several parts of England. Halliwell in 
his Dictionary of Archaic and Provincial Words defines it as 
"heavy, clumsy"" ; and Addy in his Glossary of Words used in 
the Neighborhood of Sheffield explains it as "awkward, clumsy, 
heavy ; also strong, muscular."" I find the following illustra- 
tions of the meaning of the word in Notes and Queries (8th 
series, vol. X., page 272) : A stout elderly person unable to 
walk with ease, lacking nimbleness, is lundy ; a bulky article 
difficult to carry (not because of its weight) is lundy; and a 
reckless rough foot-baller plays a lundy game. 


There is a third way in which the word Lundy in some in- 
stances may have become a surname. We call a grass-plat a 
lawn ; our ancestors called it a laund ; see Bardsley's English 
Surnames, page 122. Those who had their habitations on the 
greensward in the heart of the forest received the family names 
of Laund, Land, Lander, Lound, Lond, and Lund. Lundy may 
be a diminutive of Lund, and mean "little lawn." 

The village of Largo is in Scotland on an inlet of the Firth 
of Fourth ; and in the middle of a park near this village stand 
three straight sharp stones, several yards high, which are 
known as "The Standing Stanes of Lundie." Nothing is known 
concerning their origin or how they got the name of Lundie ; 
but they were probably erected in connection with the religious 
rites of a heathen race that disappeared ages ago. 

There is an island named Lundy in the entrance of Bristol 
channel, eleven or twelve miles off the coast of Devonshire. It 
is a lofty rampart of rocks ; it covers an area of 920 acres and 
contains fewer than 200 inhabitants. It has always been occu- 
pied as a nesting place by enormous numbers of puffins ; hence 
its name, for the Isle of Lundy means the Isle of Puffins. 
There is no evidence that any family by the name of Lundy ever 
had anything to do with the island. 

In a book written by Joseph Besse and published by him at 
London in 1753, entitled "Sufferings of the People Called 
Quakers," the family name of Laundy occurs several times. I 
do not venture to affirm that this is identical with Lundy ; but in 
view of the fact that great carelessness and irregularity in the 
spelling of proper names prevailed in England at that time, the 
similarity is suggestive. Besse says : Richard Laundy was 
fined £5 and had a horse worth £8 10 s. taken from him for 
refusing to take an oath at the Quarter Sessions. In 1668, 
Richard Laundy of Boldenhurst (and others) was imprisoned 
on an Exchequer Process. In 1668 Richard Laundy of Bolden- 
hurst was fined for being at a meeting at the house of Thomas 
Sutton in Little Saunton ; see Vol. I., pp. 6-8, in the Bedford- 
shire lists. On January 13, 1660, Richard Laundy, Jeremy 
Laundy, and many others were arrested and imprisoned for 
being at Friends' meeting and refusing to take the prescribed 
oath. Lewis Laundy and John Laundy are also mentioned ; see 
Vol. I., p. 242, in the Hertfordshire lists. 


This genealogy is not limited to individuals bearing the 
Lundy name, but includes, so far as my researches have been 
successful, every person who has in his veins any of the blood 
of Richard Lundy the Emigrator, no matter what that person's 
surname now is and no matter through how many different 
surnames that person's Lundy relationship is derived. 

Memory is fickle and our children forget in a week facts of 
relationship and ancestry and migration which we would re- 
member forever, and the entries which we write on the blank 
pages in the family Bible are liable to loss and destruction in a 
dozen different ways; and therefore it is evident that the only 
safety for a family record is in printer's ink. The distribution 
of printed copies bids defiance to fire and other accidents, some 
copies being preserved among kinsmen who are widely dis- 
persed, and other copies being safely lodged in the fireproof 
alcoves of historical societies and public libraries. The page 
can still speak on after the voice has become silent. 

Items have been culled from every possible source, — from 
old letters, family Bibles, tombstones, mortgages, deeds for 
land, last wills and testaments, minutes of Friends' meetings, 
local histories, and colonial documents ; and I am glad to say 
that in almost every line of descent I have found some indi- 
viduals who were willing and able to furnish information; I 
deeply appreciate their kindness. 

But all the problems of the Lundy kinship have not been 
solved ; there are lost lines and missing households still, a fact 
not to be wondered at when we consider the long interval of 
time since the birth of the first American-born Lundy, the loss 
of written records, and the frequent migrations to distant re- 
gions in search of new homes. I hope that many households, 
unknown now to me and therefore unrecorded here, may be 
traced out hereafter and listed properly within the circle of the 
Lundy kinship. The publication of this book will render 
future investigation nuich more effective by revealing to all 
inquirers the exact points at which further information is most 

The compilation of this family history has been to me a work 
of pride and reverence and love and duty.

3. Richard Lundy IL and Elizabeth Large, of Warren Co., N.J. 

4. Richard Lundy IIL and Ann Willson, of Warren Co., N. J. 

The line then divides into seven branches : 

L Samuel Lundy and Sarah Webster.

IIL Amos Lundy and Ann Collins. 
IV. Sarah Lundy and John Kester. 
V. Richard Lundy IV. and Mary Stockton. 
VI. John Lundy and Rebecca Silverthorn. 
VII. Azariah Lundy and Elizabeth 

Richard Lundy IIL, whose name stands at the beginning of 
this Group, was the son of Richard Lundy II. and Elizabeth 
Large. He was born in Bucks county. Pa., and lived there until 
he was a young man; in 17^!^ his parents removed to some 
place within the limits of the Exeter Monthly Meeting at 


Maiden Creek, Berks county, Pa. On lO day of 8 mo., 1739, 
Richard Lundy III. married Ann Willson, born 5 day of 6 mo., 
1720, died after 1778, daughter of Samuel and Hester (Over- 
ton) Willson and granddaughter of Robert and Ann Willson. 
Their marriage certificate is recorded on the fourth page of the 
Record of Marriages for the Hardwick and Randolph Monthly 
Meeting. I insert a copy of it, retaining the old style spelling 
and capitalization. 

Marriage Certificate. 

Whereas Richard Lundy, jur., of Maiden Creek in the County 
of Philadelphia and Province of Pensylvania, and Anne Will- 
son, daughter of Sam'l Willson of the same place afsd, having 
declared their intentions of marriage with each other before 
several Monthly Meetings of the People called Quakers in the 
County afsd, according to the good order among them, whose 
Proceedings therein after a deliberate Consideration thereof 
and haveing consent of Parents and Relations concerned, 
Nothing appearing to obstruct, were approved of by the sd 

NOW these are to certify all whome it may concern that for 
the full accomplishment of their said Intentions this Tenth day 
of the Eighth month one thousand seven hundred and thirty 
nine. They the sd Richard Lundy and Anne Willson appeared 
in a Publick Meeting of the said people at Maiden Creek in the 
County afsd and the said Richard Lundy, Taking the said Anne 
Willson by the hand, did in a solemn manner openly declare 
that he Took her to be his wife promising through Devine as- 
sistance to be a Loveing and faithful Husband untill death 
should seperate them ; and then and there in the said Assembly 
She the said Anne Willson did in like manner declare that she 
took the said Richard Lundy to be her Husband Promising 
through Devine Assistance to be a Loveing and faithfull wife 
untill death should seperate them. 

And moreover the said Richard Lundy and Anne Willson 
(She according to custom of Marriage assuming the Name of 
her Husband) as a further confirmation thereof did then and 
there to these Presents set their Hands. 

And we whose names are hereunto subscribed, being amongst 
others present at the solemnization of their said marriage and 
subscription in manner afforesaid, as witnesses thereunto have 


also to these presents set our hands the day and year above 

Richard Lundy, jur.

On the 27th day of 12th mo., 1745-6 (that is, February, 
1746), Richard requested a certificate of membership for him- 
self and family from the Exeter Meeting; and on 12th day of 
4th mo., 1746, he presented said certificate before the Bethle- 
hem Monthly Meeting in Hunterdon Co., N. J. He settled at 
the Great .Meadows near Allamuchy, Warren Co., N. J. He 
was elected to represent the old township of Hardwick on the 
Board of Justices and Freeholders of Sussex county during 
1754 and 55, and is designated on the early records as Richard 
Lundy, Jr. When the log-goal was built at the village now 
known as Johnsonburg, a dispute arose between the contractors 
and the county authorities as to the manner in which the work 
had been done ; so the Board, of Freeholders appointed Richard 
to meet the workmen and adjust the matter. The Court of the 
General Sessions of the Peace appointed him to serve as one of 
the commissioners to divide the covmty into additional pre- 
cincts. On the account book of the Collector of Sussex county, 
I find these two entries made during the year 1755 : 

"To Richard Lundy, Jr., for Wolf's head £3." 

"To Richard Lundy, Jr., for killing three groan 

"Wolves & 6 whelps £13 los." 

Items like these show that liberal bounties were paid for the 
destruction of these troublesome beasts of prey, and give us a 
glimpse of those early days, reminding us of the fact that Hard- 
wick township was at that time only a frontier settlement. 

Richard Lundy III. died November 17, 1756, and left ten 



children, the eldest of whom was only sixteen years of age. It 
is certain that Anne his widow was living in 1778, for in that 
year her son Eliezer produced before the Falls Meeting, in 
writing, Anne's consent to his marriage ; and tradition says that 
Anne removed in 1784 to Virginia with her son John and made 
her home with him and died there at the age of one hundred 
and two years. 

The last Will and Testament of Richard Lundy the Third, 
dated November i, 1756, is recorded among WILLS, Liber 8, 
pages 475-476, in the Office of the Secretary of State, Trenton, 

Richard Lundy. His Will. £22.2 8s.

the children of 


I. Samuel was born the 30th day of the 5th month, 1740, at

son county, where he died May 5, 1831. 

X. Eliezer, born the 15th of the 2nd month, 1753, at the place 
afsd; and departed this Life the loth of 7th month, 1782. He

He was buried on the nth of 7th mo., 1782. 

XI. Azariah, born the i8th of the 9th month, 1754, at the 
place afsd; and departed this Life the ist of 7th month, 1784. 
He was buried in the Hardwick yard in Warren county, N. J. 
He married Elizabeth . In 1785 his widow and chil- 
dren removed to Grayson (now Carroll) county, Va. 

The names and birth-dates of all the children enumerated 
above and the death-dates of Eliezer and Azariah are taken 
from the fourth page of the Record of Births for the Hardwick 
and Mendham Monthly Meeting ; the other data have been 
gathered from various sources. 

Anne Lundy, jr., the sixth child, married with the approval 
of the Kingwood Monthly Meeting, Abraham Webster, possi- 


bly the son (born 12 of 9, 1743) of Joseph and Elizabeth Web- 
ster. Their first declaration of intentions to marry was made 
on 8 of 3, 1770. They had at least one child, Mary, who resided 
within the compass of the Hardwick M. M., and removed to 
Upper Canada some time previous to 1821 ; Mary had married 
a Mr. Tonkin as her second husband. 

Ebenezer Lundy applied to the Kingwood Meeting on 6 of 9, 
1768, for a certificate of removal to the Wrightstown Meeting 
in Bucks county, Pa. At a Monthly Meeting held at Falls, 
Bucks county, on 8 of 10. 1777, Ebenezer was reported for hav- 
ing been engaged in military service so far as to be employed 
in making implements of war such as tents and other military 
atttire ; and the minutes further show that on being treated with 
he was so far from seeing his error that he rather endeavored 
to justify his conduct, and that a testimony against him was 
accordingly produced, read, approved and signed. 

Eliezer Lundy married Christianna Brown, daughter of 
Thomas Brown, with the approval of the Falls Meeting in 
Bucks county. Pa., on 18 day of 2 mo., 1778. Eliezer is desig- 
nated on the minutes as a son of Richard and as a brother of 
Ebenezer. Eliezer died in 7th mo., 1782. There is no record 
of any children. On the 8 of 10, 1777, Eliezer was charged be- 
fore the Falls Meeting with "being employed by his brother in 
making Tents, &c., for the army" ; he was present and offered 
a paper of acknowledgment for his misconduct which was read 
and received. On 15 day of 5 mo., 1793, Christianna Lundy 
(perhaps Eliezer's widow) married George Merrick of the 
Borough of Bristol, Bucks county, Pa. 

No further information concerning Anne, Ebenezer or 

The children of Richard Lundy IIL emigrated from Warren 
county. New Jersey, about the time of the Revolutionary War. 
So complete was the exodus that, so far as known, there is not 
a single person residing at the present time within the boundar- 
ies of the State of New Jersey that can trace his descent in 
either male or female line from Richard IIL The dispersal was 
to regions far remote. Samuel and William, the eldest sons, 
settled in Canada, Samuel locating near Newmarket in Ontario, 
and William at Lundy's Lane, near Niagara Falls. Amos, 
Richard IV., John, Sarah, and Azariah's widow went south and 
planted a colony in- Grayson and Carroll counties, Virginia. 





Richard Lundy II. in his will dated 21 of 2 mo., 1772, gives 
six pounds to his grandson Samuel Lundy, Junior. 

The minutes of the Kingwood Monthly Meeting show that 
Samuel Lundy, Jr., and Sarah Webster declared their inten- 
tions of marriage on 8 of 3 mo., 1759. In the minutes of the 
same meeting, under date of 13 day 2 mo., 1794, it is stated 
that William Lundy and Samuel Lundy III. requested certifi- 
cates of membership to the Exeter Meeting at Maiden Creek, 
Berks Co., Pa. ; and it is also stated under date of 30 day 5 mo., 
in the same year, that Samuel Lundy II. requested a certificate 
of membership to the Exeter Meeting for himself and four 
minor children. The records of the Society of Friends at 
Millville, Pa., show that a certificate was presented to that 
Meeting on 10 day 7 mo., 1794. by Samuel Lundy from the 
records of the Kingwood Monthly Meeting held at Hardwick, 
Sussex Co., N. J., recommending the aforesaid Samuel Lundy 
with his four children, John, Ebenezer, Sarah, and Eleazer. 
The records of the Exeter Meeting make mention twice of a 
William Lundy; it is stated that William Lundy came in 1795 
from Kingwood, Hunterdon Co., N. J. ; and it is also stated, 
under date of 22 day 5 mo., 1798, that a report was received 
from the Muncy Preparative Meeting that William Lundy had 
accomplished his marriage with one not a member. 

Turning again to the Kingwood minutes, we find that a 
Richard Lundy declared his intention of marriage on 8 day 11 
mo., 1787; and that on 12 day 11 mo., 1795, Richard Lundy 
requested a certificate of membership for himself and family 
to the Exeter Meeting. 

The statements above are gleaned from original sources and 
are indisputable as to the several particular facts ; the state- 


ments concerning Samuel Lundy, here called "the second" and 
"junior," refer to the same individual. This Samuel Lundy 
settled in the township of Whitchurch, York Co., Ontario, and 
died in March, 1826. He had seven children; four of his sons 
settled near him in Canada ; namely, Richard, William, John, 
and Eleazer ; the three other children remained in the United 
States. After the death of Sarah, Samuel married Sarah, 
widow of James Willson and daughter of Peter Schmuck. 


I. Richard, died May 27, 1816; married Mary Lowe. 
IL William, b. June 11, 1770; married Agnes Randall, 
in. Samuel IL (he of Muncy, Pa.) ; married in 1798 Sarah 
Lundy (she of Johnsonburg, N. J.), a daughter of 
Judge Samuel Lundy ; see Group Seven. 

IV. John, mentioned in 1794 as a minor; married Elizabeth 

Toole prior to 7 mo., 1808. 

V. Ebenezer ; said to have married and to have had children. 
VI. Sarah ; said to have married a Mr. Walton ; no further 

VH. Eleazer, born in 1785; died April 4, 1853; married in 
18 1 3 Euphemia Playter. 

It is said that Ebenezer married and had at least one child, 
a daughter named Mary Ann, who married a Mr. Buckley ; 
and it is also said that Mary Ann visited her kinsmen at New- 
market, Ontario, in 1853-54. No further information concern- 
ing Ebenezer.

from Muncy, Lycoming County, Pa., a town near the west 
branch of the Susquehanna river, fourteen miles southeast of 
Williamsport. To distinguish this Samuel from other individ- 
uals of the same name, he was frequently spoken of as Muncy 
Samuel ; and at a later day, some persons, not knowing the cir- 
cumstances, used the appellation as a middle name and called 
him Samuel Muncy Lundy. Samuel of Muncy built a dwell- 
ing house along the Pequest river above the Friends' Meeting- 
house, and there he lived and died and was buried in Friends' 
yard. After the death of Samuel, Sarah accompanied her son- 
in-law Abner B. Laing to Waterloo, N. Y., and made her home 
with his family until her death.

The Canadian Post of Lindsay, Ontario, published the fol- 
lowing obituary in its issue of February 14, 1896 : 

Niagara Falls, February 9. 
The Niagara district has lost one of its best known and 
highly respected citizens in the death of Mr. Lantry Shannon 
Lundy of Lundy's Lane, yesterday morning. He was the last 
surviving member of the family of Thomas Lundy, a son of 
William Lundy, the United Empire Loyalist, after whom the 
historic lane was named. The late Mr. Lundy was born and 
spent most of his life in the house in which he died and which 
was used as a hospital during the Battle of Lundy's Lane and 
as officers' quarters during 1814, his father's house having been 
burned by guerrillas in 1813. The original plot of the home- 
stead was granted by King George IIL January 6, 1796, thus 
having been in the unbroken possession of the family for more 
than a hundred years ; and the clock whose ticking marked his 
birth marked also his release from the weary hours of his suf- 
fering during which he was sustained by an unwavering Chris- 
tian faith. He was also of Revolutionary stock, his maternal 
grandfather having been Col. Shannon, a British officer, whose 
command was the last to surrender to American arms. He had 
entered upon his 77th year, having been born January, 1820. 
He had been a life-long Liberal, a justice of the peace for 
thirty- three years and had held many other public positions of 
trust. He was esteemed by all for his uprightness of character 
and kindness of heart ; and revered by those admitted to his 
friendship and home-circle. He leaves a sorrowing widow and 
a large grown-up family by whom he was dearly loved and by 
whom his memory will be held as their best possession. The 
funeral will take place from his late residence on Wednesday 
afternoon, February 12, at 2 o'clock, interment taking place at 
Drummond Hill Cemetery. 


During the summer of 18 14, the Americans formed a plan 
to capture and occupy the Niagara peninsula which includes 
the territory bounded by Lake Ontario, the Niagara River and 
the eastern end of Lake Erie. An army was assembled at 
Buffalo under Gen. Jacob Brown. On July 3, 1814, Brown 


suddenly invaded Canada and compelled the surrender of Fort 
Erie before Sir Phineas Riall, the British commander, could 
come to its relief. During the military operations which fol- 
lowed, three spirited battles were fought on the Canadian side 
of the Niagara River; namely, the battle of Chippewa, the 
battle of Lundy's Lane, and the siege of Fort Erie. Each of 
these battles was an American victory ; but, curious to relate, 
the final outcome of the whole campaign was a complete failure 
for the Americans. 

The British were entrenched along the Chippewa River ; the 
Americans took a position behind Street's Creek ; between 
which two streams there stretched a large open meadow. On 
July 5th, there was constant picket-firing and skirmishing 
between the armies thus facing each other; at four o'clock in 
the afternoon of that day, Riall marched out on the plain with 
his whole army drawn up in order of battle, attacking the 
brigade of volunteers, quickly put them to flight ; but Winfield 
Scott brought his regulars into action and compelled the British 
to retire to their encampment. The loss on each side was about 
300 men. This is known as the battle of Chippewa. 

Riall retreated to Lake Ontario. Brown, anxious to lead his 
army along the lake shore and capture Toronto and Kingston, 
made his headquarters at Queenston and remained there three 
weeks waiting in vain for supplies and re-inforcements ; then, 
disappointed, he fell back to the Chippewa River. Riall, who 
had been re-inforced by troops brought from Toronto by Gen. 
Drummond, again advanced southward toward the American 
position, concealing his movements very carefully. Brown 
began to fear that there might be some truth in the rumor that 
the British were preparing to invade New York State ; and he 
therefore sent Scott with a strong force to reconnoiter and find 
out where the British army was. 

This led to the famous battle which was fought in Canada 
near Niagara Falls on July 25, 1814, and which by mere acci- 
dent has made the name of Lundy a familiar word in every 
English-speaking community throughout North America. 
Scott advanced northward along the Niagara River. Riall on 
the alert, quickly learned of Scott's advance and prepared to 
check it. He selected his position with great skill ; he did not 
place himself directly in front of the Americans, but stationed 
his army a short distance to the west of the road, on elevated 


ground, whence he would be able to pour down a destructive 
fire into the ranks of the Americans if they should be rash 
enough to continue their forward movement along the main 
road. On this eminence, the key of the position, Riall planted 
a battery of nine cannon, drew up his army round about it, and 
waited. Scott realized the situation at once ; it would be folly 
to advance along the main road ; either he must return to camp, 
or he must drive the British from that hilltop. He tried to 
carry the hill by storm, but was repulsed with severe loss ; this 
was about six o'clock in the afternoon. Major Jesup was sent 
to steal around to the rear of the British and he was so far suc- 
cessful as to capture some prisoners, including Riall himself. 
Brown arrived on the field with the main army just at dark ; 
and a new plan was immediately arranged with the view to 
force the enemy to abandon his position. 

Troops were selected for a storming column, and to them was 
assigned the duty of carrying the battery by a charge directly 
up the hill. An officer was wanted to head the line. The com- 
mander-in-chief summoned Major James Miller to his side and 
said, "Can you capture that battery ?" Miller looked at the hill 
already sprinkled with the bodies of dead comrades and replied, 
"I'll try, sir." Fallling in line, they dashed straight up the hill 
in the face of the battery and captured it and held it, displaying 
a courage and gallantry that has never been surpassed in the 
annals of American warfare. 

The greater part of the American army was at once massed 
together on the hill. Three vigorous and determined attempts 
were made by the British to regain the battery, but without suc- 
cess ; and finally about midnight they retired from the contest. 
The Americans remained on the battle field a very brief time, 
and then in the darkness they, too, withdrew, so exhausted 
with the struggle that they were unable to take with them the 
cannon which they had captured and retained at such a fearful 
cost. The British re-occupied the blood-drenched hill and took 
possession of their lost cannon, unmolested. Each side had lost 
about 850 men, an exceptionally heavy loss in proportion to the 
number of men engaged. The opposing commanders were 
taken to BufTalo, Brown having been severely wounded and 
Riall as a prisoner; Scott also was wounded nigh unto death. 
Technically the victory rested with the Americans, for at the 
close of the fight they were the masters of the field ; but prac- 


tically all the fruits of victory were secured by the Hritish, for 
the resistance which they nuule was so courageous and so stub- 
born that the whole scheme of invasion had to be abandoned. 

This sharp and bloody conflict is known in history as the 
battle of Lundy's Lane, for the land thereabout was owned by a 
Quaker farmer named William Lundy, and the lane which led 
to his dwelling house branched off at right angles from the 
main road and passed westward directly over the top of the hill 
on which the battle was fought. 

The Americans retreated in great haste to Fort Erie, where 
they were soon hemmed in by the British. General Drummond 
planned a surprise ; he led his army forward at midnight in 
three columns silently ; but the Americans were under arms 
waiting for him. Assault after assault was made by the British 
soldiers with matchless courage and ])ersistency, even gaining 
one of the bastions and holding it until daybreak. Although 
compelled at length to desist from the attack, they continued to 
press the siege with energy for several weeks until the Ameri- 
cans made a sudden sally out of the fort and destroyed their 
batteries. This sortie was the last battle of the campaign. The 
contending armies then separated ; General Drummond relin- 
quished his attempt to capture the place and led his troops back 
to Chippewa ; the Americans abandoned the fort and returned 
to New York State. Thus ended the invasion of Canada. 




Amos Lundy (of Richard IlL, Richard IL) married Ann 
Collins. Their marriage is mentioned in the records of the 
Kingwood Monthly Meeting as having taken place previously 
to lo of 9 mo., 1767. Nine children were born to them in

1 823- 1 900. 

William Lundy was the son of Samuel P. Lundy and Sarah 
Davis, and a grandson of Richard Lundy IV. and Mary Stock- 
ton. He was born in 1823 near Fisher's Peak, Carroll comity, 
Virginia ; and it was amid the romantic scenery of that weird 
region that he received his first impressions of human life and 
what it means. He became a dextrous hunter and an expert 
shot with the rifle ; in middle life he could shoot offhand and 
hit a squirrel's head in the top of a tall tree. Many a deer run- 
ning at full speed has gone down at the crack of his gun ; once 
in a deer chase in his early life, he was accidentally shot and 
dangerously wounded by one of his companions. Without the 
aid of schools he acquired a good rudimentary education and 
taught school for several years. In the olden times when read- 
ing, writing and cyphering were the only branches taught in 
the common schools, Mr. Lundy was one of the teachers that 
could cypher through the rule of three and extract the cube 
root, in Pike's old arithmetic. In 1841 he married Lucy Payne, 
who lived and cheered his life for the next forty-nine years. 

William joined the Primitive Baptist Church at Crooked 
Creek on the i6th day of August, 1854, and on the next day was 
baptized in the clear and limpid waters of that wandering 
stream. He came up out of the water a preacher and preached 
his first sermon on the day of his baptism and was thenceforth 
to the day of his death an earnest, faithful and zealous preacher. 


When Virginia in 1861 called for vokmteers to repel the inva- 
sion of her territory by the Federal Government, Mr. Lundy 
volunteered and was made captain of Co. E in the 45th regi- 
ment of Virginia Infantry. Capt. Lundy participated in all the 
battles fought in western Virginia during the campaigns of 
1861-62; and under many a shower of leaden fire proved him- 
self to be a brave officer and gallant soldier. He was always 
kind and considerate toward his men and obedient to his super- 
iors in office. He never disobeyed but one order, and that was 
an order from his colonel to burn some wheat and other grain. 
He positively refused to obey this order, saying that he would 
not burn grain when so many women and children were suffer- 
ing for it. During the battle at Laurel Creek, West Virginia, 
Capt. Lundy stood where he was fully exposed to the enemy's 
fire ; and his tall and commanding form made him a target for 
their bullets. When urged to get behind a tree, he said, "Every 
shot they fire at me will miss my men." It is needless to say 
that wherever Capt. Lundy led the way, his men would follow 

Retiring from military service, he took up again more vigor- 
ously the sword of the spirit and preached the gospel to human 
creatures. As a parent, Mr. Lundy was all that a strong loving 
father could be ; as a neighbor and friend, he was always ready 
with heart and hand to do his whole duty and more too. As a 
public speaker, his language was remarkably direct and vigor- 
ous; when his mind was made up on any subject, he was sure 
to blurt it out in language that never betrayed his meaning. In 
talking with young people Mr. Lundy used to say : "When 
you were children, you trampled on your parents' toes. Now 
you are grown, you trample on their hearts. Remember that 
you are heavy and the heart is a tender organ, and let your steps 
be light when you tread there." 

He preached his first sermon at Crooked Creek Church in 
1854; he preached his last sermon on the 7th day of January, 
1900, at Piney Creek Church in Alleghany county, N. C. from 
the text : "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in 
all the world for a witness unto all nations ; and then shall the 
end come." Between the dates of these two sermons there rolls 
a period of more than forty-five years, during which he traveled 
and preached through seventeen States of the American Union. 
Indeed, his tours were so extensive that it would seem that 


there can lie but few Primitive Baptists in the Southern States 
who have not heard him preach. In his long and extensive 
career as a minister of the gospel, he failed to fill only seven 
appointments, six of these failures occurred while he was pros- 
trated with sickness, and one while he was ice-bound. He 
would ford rivers and streams to meet his appointments, 
although those who were acquainted with the fords would beg 
liim not to undertake it. 

He was ever an ardent and devoted student of the Scriptures ; 
they were to him the very bread of life. He studied and inter- 
preted Scripture by Scripture and never used commentaries, 
articles of faith or theological tenets as aids. He was Calvin- 
istic in his views, although he knew nothing of the writings of 
John Calvin. When his mind was fixed, he preached his doc- 
trines with great boldness and with much energy. His blows 
fell on sin and sinners with the force of a sledge hammer. When 
his mind was not clear, he would say : "I will leave that with 
the Almighty." His views were the honest productions of his 
earnest brain, heart and conscience, arrived at in the fear of God 
but in the fear of God alone. 

He lived and died with an unsubdued aversion to ministers 
who preached for stated salaries. In his early career, he did not 
own a horse to ride to his appointments. He would labor hard 
in the fields day in and day out to make bread for the wife and 
children he loved, but when the day came for him to preach, he 
would get up early in the morning and often walk fifteen to 
twenty miles to reach his appointment. On these preaching 
tours, he has left his wife too sick to reach up and clasp his 
hand as he bade her goodby, and his little children have often 
followed him past the door and begged papa to come back. But 
he said he felt the Master's hand upon him requiring him to 
preach and that he could leave his wife and children in the hands 
of an all-wise God to whom he prayed for their protection. He 
never allowed himself to become a charge on his church ; he 
preached to thousands upon thousands, but he never took up a 
collection. With the labor of his own hands, he supported his 
family and himself; the voice that called him to preach never 
suggested pay. 

He died away from home on one of his preaching tours. The 
friends who heard Brother Lundy's last sermon say that he 
stood up straighter in the pulpit that day than usual ; that his 


voice seemed clearer than usual, and that he was blessed that 
day with superior gifts in the way of delivery. He was thrown 
from his buggy as he went away from the church and much 
• hurt ; he got into the buggy again and rode on to the house of a 
friend where he had started to go ; and on arriving, he said : 
"Do not let my children know I am hurt ; they could do me no 
good ; and I do not think it will kill me." When he seemed to 
be getting better from his injuries, he was stricken with paraly- 
sis and soon died. 

His mind seemed clear to the last. When the faithful band 
of church members and friends who gathered around were 
speaking in whispers lest they should disturb the dying man, he 
aroused up and said : "All come right up here and sing me one 
more song." Then in response to the inquiry "What shall we 
sing. Brother Lundy?" he said: "Just sing glory, glory, that 
will do." They sang a few appropriate stanzas, to which he 
seemed to listen with great delight. When the song was fin- 
ished, he turned his head slightly upon his pillow and said : 
"Now I must cross that river," and soon sank into the dream- 
less sleep of the dead. His body was buried in the graveyard 
at Antioch, North Carolina; and notwithstanding the snows 
and storms of January, fully one thousand people gathered 
around the open grave to witness the last sad rite. 

Thus in peace and confidence ended the life of a hardy moun- 
taineer who had accepted for himself the gospel of Jesus of 
Nazareth and had preached it faithfully unto others, a typical 
instance of the power of the gospel story to touch and mould 
minds of strength and energy among the common people. 





John Lundy I. (of Richard III.) was born 19 of 9 mo., 1751, 
in Sussex (now Warren) county, N. J., and died on his home- 
stead near Oldtown, Grayson county, Va., May 5, 1831, at the 
age of eighty-two. His will is dated April 30, 1831. Rebecca 
Silverthorn was born about 1753, and died December 24, 1839, 
at the age of eighty-two. The approximate date of the mar- 
riage of John and Rebecca, as given in the minutes of the 
Kingswood Monthly Meeting of the Society of Friends, is 1 1 of 
12 mo., 1777. Several children were born to them in New 
Jersey; on the 10 of 2 mo., 1785, John requested from the 
Kingwood M. M. a certificate of membership addressed to the 
Deep River Monthly Meeting in North Carolina. 

John settled in Grayson county, Virginia, and secured from 
the land-oflfice at Richmond a treasury-warrant for one hundred 
acres of land. The warrant was No. 7,339, and was dated 
August 15, 1787. He selected his land at once and built a cabin, 
and began to clear away the timber so as to have fields for crops, 
but he did not have his land surveyed until July 6, 1798 ; and ten 
years more elapsed before he completed his title by obtaining 
the final legal document called a patent. The patent is dated 
1808, and is signed by William H. Cabell, Governor of Virginia. 
John seemed to have taken his time to it ; and it strikes us 
moderns as being an exceedingly leisurely way of acquiring title 
to real estate ; but the original warrant fortified by actual pos- 
session was doubtless all that the law required, a survey not 
being necessary until neighbors began to crowd in around him, 
and a patent not being necessary until a transfer of title to other 
parties was thought of. 

Fisher's Peak is a high knob on the Blue Ridge, part of it 
being in Virginia and part of it in North Carolina. A man 
named Fisher was the first to trim out a way across that part 
of the mountain range, and so the notch through which he made 
the path was named after him and called Fisher's Gap. This 
same man was one of the surveyors that laid out the State line ; 



and while overheated he drank too much cold water from a 
spring which flows out of a rock near the top of the hill, and at 
this spring he died ; and that is the reason why the summit goes 
by his name and is called Fisher's Peak. 

Richard Lundy settled within two miles of Fisher's Peak ; his 
farm is now owned by Barnett Paine. 

Azariah also settled along the side of the Blue Ridge ; his 
farm is now owned by Floyd Brannock. The old house went 
to ruin long, long ago, and its location is now indicated only by 
some old pieces of logs and some foundation stones. When 
Carroll county was organized and set off from Grayson, 
Azariah's place fell within the new county. 

The road leading from Fisher's Gap to Oldtown divides and 
sends off a branch or spur which leads to the Little Old Iron 
Works. Here in the fork made by the main road and the spur 
John and Amos Lundy settled on adjoining farms. John built 
his cabin on a hill ; this made it unhandy to get water, every 
drop of which had to be carried uphill from the spring, which 
was two hundred yards away. These old homesteads are two 
miles from the present post office of Meadow Creek, four miles 
from Oldtown, and six from Fisher's Gap. The land taken up 
by Amos is now owned by Greggs Kampton ; but John's home- 
stead is still in the Lundy name, being now occupied by his 
great-great-grandsons, Churchwell O. and Emmet W. Lundy. 

The only means those pioneers had to carry things was on 
their backs or on horses ; and it was the hardest kind of work 
to carry things even that way ; for the roads were narrow, 
rough, and steep, going straight up one ridge, over the hill-top, 
and straight down the other side, keeping in quite straight lines, 
much more so than now, when many of the roads have been 
changed and graded around the hills. Some of the old trails 
may be seen even at this day, leading up over hills, which have 
not been cleared. 

Some of the early settlers had a hard time to get started. 
With only a few fields cleared, when their crops failed or were 
destroyed, they would run short of things to eat.. In these 
times of want, they would follow close after the cows as they 
roamed through the woods, and whatever the cows would eat, 
they would gather for pottage, seeking thus to make their little 
stock of provisions last longer and to add variety to their 
monotonous bill of fare. 


Wolves were a great scourge. They would howl so nights 
that no one eould sleep. Shooting at them as they skulked in the 
shadows did not stop their throats except for a little while ; for 
they would soon start at it again. The best way to keep them 
quiet was to build a large bonfire of brush and logs in the yard 
or garden or field near the house. Wolves are cowards and love 
a thicket ; and for this reason children when playing around the 
doorsteps were much safer when the house stood on high 
ground. The undergrowth was much thicker on the lowlands ; 
and the wolves were much more likely to attack a person down 
there; for they could skulk through the dense brush and get 
close to him without exposing themselves to view, especially late 
or at night. And for this reason too, a wide space was kept 
cleared around the spring. The pigs and calves had to be put 
into strong pens every night. It was an incessant care to the 
settler to guard the two or three sheep which he had secured 
from a distance at much cost and trouble to have wool to spin. 
Wolves would prowl around and at nightfall would sometimes 
become so bold as to make in pack fierce attacks on the sheep 
pen. Of course, they could not break into the pen, but they 
would cause the sheep to injure themselves through fright; so 
that through fear of this result the farmer would be compelled 
to bring his sheep into the house during the night, putting them 
into a large box by the chimney corner. These ferocious "var- 
mints" are now very scarce ; but every three or four years a 
small pack passes through. 

I have said that John Lundy perched his cabin high up on 
the hillside ; all the other pioneers did the same. This looks 
somewhat foolish at this distance of time ; jbut they were wise 
in their day and generation. Death lurked along the water- 
courses. The meadows were undrained and leaves and other 
litter clogged up the streams. Fever and ague has ever been 
the dread of those who clear away the forests and break up the 
virgin soil ; and bitter experience everywhere taught the first 
settlers to look upon the damp air of the lowlands as a slow 
poison. Of course, they did not build their houses on the 
highest knobs which are mountainous and almost destitute of 
water, but on ridges of land somewhat elevated. 

John and Rebecca Lundy had two sons and six daughters. 
Aaron, the older son, married and settled on a farm half-way 
between his father's and Oldtown; Amos, the younger son, 


married and finally obtained the homestead; Rachel, the 
youngest child, remained at home and took care of her father 
John in his old age. Rachel herself was blessed with a long 
life and a good memory, and she enjoyed telling the younger 
generation about her father and mother and the inconveniences 
and hardships which they had endured as early settlers. She is 
still remembered as walking around the dooryard with two 
canes ; and when the little sons of her nephews and nieces came 
to help her by doing small jobs, such as chopping wood, pulling 
weeds, gathering berries and apples, and carrying water, she 
would sit down by them after their work was done and tell 
them stories about the by-gone days, and would further show 
her appreciation of their kindness by giving them for keep- 
sakes various little articles that had once )belonged to their great 
grand parents. And it is needless to say that these relics, the 
quaint cup and saucer, the fancy buckle, the spectacle case, the 
old-fashioned buttons, the razor hone, and such like things, are 
now prized even more highly as the years go by.

Joseph Lundy 

Of Warren County, New Jersey. 
Born in 1719; Died in 1759. 


1. Sylvester Lundy, of Axminster, England. 

2. Richard Lundy L and Jane Lyon, of Bucks Co., Pa. 

3. Richard Lundy ILand Elizabeth Large, of Warren Co., N.J. 

4. Joseph Lundy and Susanna Button, of Warren Co., N. J. 

The line then divides into three branches : 

L Sarah Lundy and Joseph Carpenter. 
IL Enos Lundy. Sr.. and Rachel Carpenter. 
III. Hannah Lundv and Samuel Shotwell. 

Joseph Lundy, whose name stands at the beginning of this 
Group, was the son of Richard Lundy H. and Elizabeth Large. 
Joseph was born in Bucks county. Pa., 24 of 4 mo., 17 19. 
The first occurrence of his name is found on the minutes of the 
Exeter Monthly Meeting at Maiden Creek in Berks county, 
Pa.; in which minutes it is stated that on 31 day of i mo., 
1743. Joseph Lundy and Susanna Hutton were left at liberty to 

Joseph and his wife Susanna requested on 30 day 3 mo., 
1745, from the Exeter Meeting a certificate of membership 
addressed to the Bethlehem (afterward Kingwood. now 
Quakertown) Monthly Meeting in Hunterdon county, N. J.. 


which certificate they presented at Bethlehem of the 8 day of 
5 mo. following. 

Joseph was a witness to the will of his brother Richard III. 
in 1756. 

On the 14 day of 9 mo., 1758, a certain Joseph Lundy 
declared his intention to marry Sarah Willson of Hardwick 
township. In 1759. letters of administration were granted on 
the estate of a Joseph Lundy; see Liber IX., page 392, among 
Wills, at Trenton, N. J. Since no descriptive term such as 
senior or junior is applied to either of the two Josephs last men- 
tioned, it seems natural to regard them as identical with Joseph 
the husband of Susanna Hutton. 

It is not known how many children Joseph and Susanna had ; 
definite information has been obtained in regard to only one of 
them, their son Enos. Tradition has handed down the name 
of a daughter Sarah ; this Sarah may have been the Sarah 
Lundy who with Joseph Carpenter made their first declaration 
of intention of marriage, before the Kingwood Monthly Meet- 
ing on 8 day of 9 mo., 1768. 

Among the witnesses to the marriage of Jesse Dennis and 
Ann Schooley on 18 of 10 mo., 1781, at Newton, N. J., were 
Nancy Lundy and Hannah Lundy ; and among the witnesses 
to the marriage of George Lundy and Esther Willson at the 
Hardwick Meeting-house on 15 of 3 mo.. 1780, was Catharine 
Lundy. The parentage and relationship of Nancy. Hannah, 
and Catharine have not been ascertained. There is no further 
record concerning Nancy and Catharine; Hannah in 1788 mar- 
mied Samuel Shotwell and settled in Sussex county, N. J. I 
venture to classify Nancy, Hannah and Catharine, provision- 
ally, as the children of Joseph Lundy. 


I. William, of Newton township, Sussex county, N. J., 

assigned here inferentially ; m. Mary Webster. 

II. Sarah, assigned here by tradition ; m. Joseph Carpenter. 
HI. Enos. Sr., b. 31st day of ist mo., 1749, in New Jersey; d. 

on 28th day of 3rd mo., 1832, at Whitchurch, York 
county, Ontario; m. Rachel Carpenter. 
1\". Hannah, assigned here doubtfully; m. Samuel Shotwell. 


V. Nancy, possibly ; no further record. 
VI. Catherine, possibly ; no further record. 

William Lundy, on April 13, 1769, obtained from the civil 
government a license to marry Mary Webster ; the bond given 
at that time by him in order to obtain the license is recorded at 
Trenton, N. J., in volume L, Licenses of Marriage, years 1764- 
1794. Asa Schooley was William's bondman; and all the 
persons are described as of Newton, Sussex county, N. J. No 
further record. 

It may be of interest to insert here a copy of the marriage 
license anciently required by law in the province of New Jersey. 

Know all men by these Presents that we William Lundy and 
Asa Schooley, both of Newtown in the County of Sussex & 
Province of New Jersey, are holden and do stand justly 
indebted unto his Excellency Wm. Franklin, Esq., Governor 
and Commander in Chief in & over ye province afsd in the 
Sum of Five Hundred Pounds of current lawful money of New 
Jersey to be paid to his said Excellency Wm Franklin, Esq.. 
his successors or assigns, for which Payment well and truly to 
be made and done, we do bind ourselves, our heirs, executors 
and administrators, and every of them, jointly and severally, 
firmlv by these Presents ; sealed with our seals, dated this thir- 
teenth Day of April Annoque Domini One Thousand Seven 
Hundred and Sixty Nine. 

The Condition of this Obligation is such, That Whereas the 
above-bounden William Lundy hath obtained License of Mar- 
riage for himself of the one Party and for Mary Webster of 
Newtown afsd of the other Party: Now, if it shall not here- 
after appear that they the said William Lundy and Mary Web- 
ster have anv lawful Let or Impediment of Precontract, 
Affinity, or Consanguinity, to hinder their being joined in the 
Holy Bands of Matrimony and afterwards their living together 
as Man and Wife ; then this Obligation to be void or else stand 
and remain in full Force and Virtue. 

William Lundy, 
Asa Schooley. 

Sealed and Delivered in the Presence of 
Thomas Anderson. 





Sarah Lundy married Joseph Carpenter. Declarations of 
their intentions to marry were made before the Kingwood 
Monthly Meeting on 8 of 9 nio., and 13 of 10 mo., 1768. On 
10 of 6 mo., 1773, Joseph Carpenter for himself and his wife 
and children requested from the Kingwood M. M. a certificate 
of membership to the Exeter Monthly Meeting in Pennsyl- 
vania. No further record. 




Enos Lundy Sr., son of Joseph and Susanna, married Rachel 
Carpenter; born 29th day of 6th mo., 1760; died in 1829 at 
Whitchurch, York county, Ontario ; daughter of Samuel and 
Elizabeth Carpenter of Pennsylvania. 

In 1785, Enos Lundy, Sr., produced to the Exeter Monthly 
Meeting, Berks county. Pa., a certificate of membership from 
the Kingwood Monthly Meeting in Hunterdon county, N. J. ; 
and in 1789 a certificate of membership came from the same 
place for his wife and children. A portion of the Exeter Meet- 
ing was set off and organized as the Millville Meeting; Enos 
and his family were assigned to the new Meeting. Enos served 
on a committee in Friends' Society at Millville, Pa., in 1796. 
On 22 day of 12 mo., 1798, his daughters Elizabeth and Sus- 
anna requested to become members of the Millville Meeting; 
and at the same time Enos requested that his son Isaac and his 
daughter Ruth (minors) become members. In the spring of 


1805, Enos and his family emigrated to Canada, and settled in 
York county, Ontario, two miles or less from the village of 
Newmarket, on the lot of land afterwards owned by his son 
Isaac ; it being lot No. 26 in the second concession of the town- 
ship of Whitchurch ; and there Enos and Rachel lived until they 
were laid to rest in Friends' yard on Yonge Street.

Jeremiah, the third child, had two children by his first wife 
Jerusha Stevens, and several children by his second wife 
Rebecca Crossley ; the names of no children have been ascer- 
tained. He lived first in Uxbridge and then in Whitchurch ; he 
next went to Tecumseh and lastly to Scott township where he 
died at the age of seventy-six. He was of tall slight figure ; he 
was in the British army during the war of 181 2 and took part 
in several battles. He was also engaged in the Rebellion of 
1837 where he lost his rifle, but escaped being caught.

ting the road ahead of them for two days sixteen miles beyond 
the last settlement. 

Elizabeth was a consistent member of the Society of Friends,

Jacob Lundy L whose name stands at the beginning of this 
Group was the son of Richard Lundy 11. and Elizabeth Large. 
Jacob was born in Bucks county. Pa., in 1721. It is natural to 
assume that he" accompanied his parents in 1737 when they left 
Bucks county and moved westward to some place within the 
jurisdiction of the Exeter Monthly Meeting at Maiden Creek 
in Berks county. Pa. 

Here he remained until 1745. On 30 day of 3 mo. (May), 



1745, he requested a certificate of meml:)ership from the Exeter 
Monthly Meeting and on the 8 day of 5 mo. he presented said 
certificate at the Bethlehem ( afterward Kingwood, now 
Ouakertown) Monthly Meeting in Hunterdon county, N. J. 

Jacob Lundy I. married Mary Willson in 1748, their first

On January 5, 1768, Jacob's father, Richard Lundy H., being 
at that time in his seventy-sixth year, deeded to Jacob one of 
the homestead farms in Warren county ; the consideration of 
this transfer of real estate is stated in the words of the deed 
itself to have been "the love and natural affection which he hath 
and beareth to his son Jacob Lundy." 

At a council held at Perth Amboy, N. J., September 17. 1772, 
Jacob was nominated by Governor William Franklin to be 
made a justice of the peace for the County of Sussex ; whicli 
was assented to by the Council. For three years. 1773-5, he 
was a member of the Board of Justices and Freeholders of Sus- 
sex county. In an old accoimt book that belonged to the 
"Union Iron Works" in Hunterdon county. .\. J., there is an 
entry under date of December 3, 1773, wliich reads 'T'o't 2 fat 
cattle of Jacob Lunday of Sussex Co,", a transaction which 
illustrates the fact that one source of income to the farmers of 
northern New Jersey in colonial times was to raise and fatten 
horned cattle and then drive them to market. 


Jacob died 17 day of i mo., 1800, at the age of seventy-nine; 
Mary Willson, his wife, died 29 of 12 mo., 1816, at the age of 
eighty-three ; both were buried at Hardwick. 

They settled on the great meadows in Warren county, N. J. 
They had ten children, all born "at Hardwick township, County 
of Sussex, and Province of New Jersey." Their family Bible 
is now in the possession of Mrs. Price Stickles, Johnson- 
burg, N. J. 

The Last Will and Testament of Jacob Lundy the First, 
dated November 3, 1795, and recorded among Wills, Liber 38, 
pages 514-515, in the Ofifice of the Secretary of State, Trenton, 
N. J.

paid out of my personal Estate. 

2nd, I give and bequeath unto Mary my beloved wife one 
half of the remainder of my personal Estate to be at her choice

Testimonial concerning Jacob Luncly, 1751-1806, an Elder 
in the Society of Friends. 

The following testimonial is recorded in Friends' Miscellany, 
Vol. VL, 1835, pp. 141-3; for a copy of it, 1 am indebted to 
Ambrose M. Shotwell in his Annals of Our Colonial Ancestors. 

"Jacob Lundy was descended of sober, honest, and respect- 
able parents, Jacob and Mary Lundy, of the Society of Friends, 
members of Hardwick monthly meeting. New Jersey. He was 
a dutiful and affectionate son, and lived with his parents in 
much harmony, and in the decline of life, he was a comfort and 
staff for them to lean upon. May others be engaged to go and 
do likewise, that they may reap the reward of an approving 
conscience, which appeared to be his happy experience. Being 
for some time in poor health, he told his physician to speak his 
mind plainly, for he did not fear. After he was confined to his 
room, he remarked to those present, that he did not expect to 
go out until he was carried out. About two weeks before his 
decease, he desired to have his children sent for, his step- 
daughter being one of them, to whom he had extended a 
parental care, and to whom he expressed himself tenderly, say- 
ing, 'Dear child, I am glad to see you again' ; and repeated it 
twice. He appeared to bear his bodily suffering, which was 
great, without a murmur, — was very patient and quiet, as 
though his day's work was done, except bearing the pain of the 
mortal body ; yet sometimes, when in great distress through 
oppression, he would say, 'what can be done? I fear I am not 
patient enough.' 

"He was favored throughout with his rational faculties with- 
out much change ; and, near half an hour before he departed, 
he fell into a quiet sleep, and drew his breath shorter and 
shorter, until he expired without a sigh or groan, or the least 
motion, so calm and easy that death seemed disarmed of his 
terrors. At this solemn period, his aged mother, standing by, 
bore this testimony, 'Why should we wish his stay, seeing his 
way is made so easy?' 

"He was an example of piety and virtue ; and in early life, 
was called upon to fill very important stations in the Society. 
He was for many years clerk of the monthly meeting. In 
1772, he was chosen to the station of an Elder; the duties of 
which he was careful to fulfill with dignity and uprightness, to 
the end of his days. In the year 1783 he was married to Sarah, 


the widow of William Hampton, of Railway ; she being a min- 
ister to whom he was a helpmate in^ her christian exercises ; and 
and when she was concerned to travel on Truth's account, he 
endeavored to open the way for her to fulfill the work she 
believed herself called unto, by assisting her freely. 

"Jacob Lundy also traveled in the service of Truth, on his 
own concern, to visit Friends in their meetings for discipline. 
In the second month of the year 1801, he was furnished with a 
minute of the unity of his friends, to attend a few meetings for 
discipline, in the remote parts of Pennsylvania. — Again, in 
1805, the monthly meeting set him at liberty to attend Red- 
stone Quarterly and the monthly meetings composing it, stating 
in his certificate, that he was 'an elder in good esteem." 

"He was very diligent in the attendance ot all our religious 
meetings, those near home as well as monthly. Quarterly, and 
Yearly Meetings ; encouraging his family also in this important 
duty. He was a careful neighbor, and careful over his own 
house to make them comfortable. He was of a tender spirit, so 
that, at times, when reading, or hearing others read the Bible, 
he has appeared to be afifected, even to tears. He was ever 
ready to entertain strangers', particularly those who were travel- 
ing on Truth's account, who found him kind and hospitable, to 
che comforting, as well as refreshing of the weary, so that oh 
times, the visitors and the visited have had to rejoice together, 
feeding, as it were, at the banqueting table of heavenly love." 

Several families of Indians dwelt in Hardwick township 
when the first white settlers came. They went away during the 
P>ench and Indian war and sought more western homes along 
the waters of the Susquehanna river ; but after peace was made, 
some of the native Indians returned to New Jersey every year 
on a short excursion to linger in their old haunts and revisit 
the graves of their forefathers; and incidentally to enjoy an 
outing and sell trinkets and willow-ware, to beg for old clothes 
and gather in small coin from visitors before whom they would 
exhibit their skill in the use of the bow and arrow. They 
generally encamped in the wood along the road between Hoey's 

and Buckley's. Elizabeth Lundy, born 1787, afterward Mrs. 

Abner Willson, used to relate concerning the Indians many 

incidents that occurred in her childhood days when she and 

other children visited the encampment.

Founder of the Dennis Library at Newton, N. J. 

It is the chief glory of our country that it sets an open door 
before young men, bidding tliem enter if they be worthy ; and 
ihe most fascinating pages of our country's history are those 
which record the struggles, the courage and the successes of 
young men with no resources but their own in reaching high 
positions among their fellows. This is illustrated in the career 
of Alfred Lewis Dennis. He was born at Newton, Sussex 
county, N. J., on 4th day of 4th month, 1817. He was the son 
of Ezekiel Dennis and Mary Baldwin, grandson of Jesse Den- 
nis and Ann Schooley, and great grandson of Benjamin 
Schooley and Martha Lundy. 

He received his early education in a small classical school 
established by the Rev. Clarkson N. Dunn, rector of Christ 
Church. At the age of thirteen he went to Newark, N. J., and 
found employment for a short time as a grocer's clerk. His 
worldly goods consisted of a small bundle of clothes and his 
mother's blessing. Mr. William Tuttle, who had a bookstore at 
the corner of Broad and Academy streets and was the pro- 
prietor of the Sentinel of Freedom, advertised for a boy to learn 
the bookbinding business ; the same evening a lad of diminutive 
stature applied for the place. Mr. Tuttle looked at the lad and 
said, "I am afraid you are not big enough to handle the press- 
bar," referring to the iron-bar used in pressing the sheets for 
binding. The boy answered with words that at once won him 
a life-long friend, and which also were the true index of his 
character and the key to his future success: "I am large 
enough to try it!" He at once became an apprentice to the 
business, and also a member of Mr. Tuttle's household ; for in 
those days the master-mechanics and employers of Newark 
boarded their apprentices in their own families, an old-fash- 
ioned but excellent custom. 

Mr. Tuttle in the regular performance of his duty as a direc- 
tor in the Newark Banking and Insurance Company went to 
New York City every Thursday to effect the exchanges for the 
bank ; and this Thursday trip took all day and sometimes a large 
part of the night if the slow ferry-boat were delayed by wind 


or fog or ice. This day of bank exchange became an important 
circumstance in the hte ot tlie young apprentice. 

No sooner had Alfred been placed ni the bindery, than he 
began "to show the stult there was in hmi" ; not merely by 
provmg that he was large enough to handle the press-bar and 
to master other details ot the trade, but by studying the nature 
of the business itself, especially as related to the materials used 
in it. In this way he studied the subject of binders' leathers, 
the process and cost of their manufacture, where they were 
chiehy made, and even the laws regulating their importation 
into this country. 

After Mr. Dennis had been some months in the bindery, he 
asked Mr. Tuttle to be allowed to act as clerk in the bookstore 
at night. At once he began to display his characteristic trait 
of getting a thorough knowledge of the business. He soon 
knew the position on the shelves of all the books, and their 
cost and price, and the principles on which the bookselling 
business was conducted. 

Not long after this night service was in successful operation, 
Mr. Dennis worked five days a week as an apprentice in the 
bindery, but served as clerk in the bookstore every Thursday 
while his employer went to New York for the bank. So skill- 
fully did he conduct his sales and so well did he conciliate cus- 
tomers, that the sales of books on Thursday were perceptibly 
larger than those on other days. Of course, it was not long 
before he became the trusted clerk whose services were devoted 
entirely to the bookstore. All this while the young man was 
increasing his knowledge both of bookmaking and bookselling, 
and of the thoughts and contents of books. As the day 
of his majority was drawing nigh, the question of his own 
future was one that caused young Dennis no little anxiety. He 
had carefully studied bookselling as a business, and especially 
bookselling at the old store, corner of Broad and Academy. 

Not long before he was twenty-one he astonished his 
employer by a proposition to buy out his business as a book- 
* seller, with all the stock in hand. He admitted he had no capi- 
tal, but was sure he soon would have some if he could have a 
chance. After careful consideration, Mr. Tuttle — a man noted 
for his caution — agreed to sell out his store to Mr. Dennis on 
terms satisfactory to both. 

At once a great change was effected in the stock of books an4 


ill the business. The "dead-stock" of the upper shelves was 
sent to the auction rooms to be sold for what it would bring in 
cash. With great sagacity he also devised and introduced into 
his business a method at that time unknown in any salesroom of 
Newark — the taking orders for merchandise in his line and 
filling them by immediate purchase in New York. Several 
times a week he went to the city and each night he would be 
ready to furnish his customers with the merchandise ordered. 
Of course, he made quick sales, turned his capital often, and 
accumulated no dead stock. Careful of his credit and on the 
alert for custom, he soon greatly enlarged his business. Some- 
times he seemed rash to his old employer, but he rarely failed 
to make his investments profitable. In due time he not only 
paid Mr. Tuttle for his books, but he had purchased the valu- 
able property on which the store was located. This last pur- 
chase, however, was not made until after Mr. Tuttle's death. 

Mention has been made of the fact that when in the bindery 
Mr. Dennis had carefully studied the history of binders' 
leathers. Confident that his venture would prove profitable, he 
quietly invested a few hundred dollars in sheepskins only 
partially finished in England. He had the process completed in 
Connecticut, and then among the first to whom he offered his 
leathers were the Harper Brothers, who finding his wares excel- 
lent and his prices reasonable, purchased largely. In a very 
short time he had disposed of his stock at a fair profit and had 
ordered a larger invoice from England. This was the begin- 
ning of a large and profitable business so shrewdly managed 
that it led the wealthy firm of Abram Bell & Co., of New York, 
in 1849, to offer him an interest in their business and to give 
him its principal control. This proved to be one of large profit. 

Meanwhile Mr. Dennis continued the book business at 
Newark, having taken his brother, Martin R. Dennis, into 
partnership; in 1861, he disposed of his interest to his partner 
and retired from the firm. 

Mr. Dennis proved so successful in the investment of his sur- 
plus capital that he had become an acknowledged authority in 
matters of finance, and about 1856 he was elected a director of 
the same bank of which Mr. Tuttle had been a director ; he also 
became an influential director of the Howard Savings Institu- 
tion of Newark, which stands among the best managed in this 


Having married in Connecticut, he was led to examine the 
condition and probable outcome of the Naugatuck Railroad, 
and he finally purchased a large amount of stock and was 
elected its vice president. Not a little owing to his tact is due 
the fact that this road cleared olT its entire bonded debt and 
regularly paid satisfactory dividends. 

In 1861, Mr. John P. Jackson, the vice president of the New 
Jersey Railroad and Transportation Company, died, and Mr. 
Dennis was elected his successor; and in 1864, when Gen. John 
S. Darcy, the president of that railroad, died, Mr. Dennis was 
elected his successor — a position which he filled with great 
ability until the road was leased in 1872 to the Pennsylvania 
Railroad Company. 

It almost bewilders one to think that the boy so slight of 
stature who in his poverty uttered those words of pluck, "I am 
large enough to try it," rose finally to occupy so many positions 
of great responsibility in the business world ; the vice president 
of the Naugatuck Railroad, vice president of the United Rail- 
roads of New Jersey, the fiscal and executive agent of the 
Pennsylvania Railroad at New York, and president of the 
Jersey City Ferry Company. He was also an active director m 
the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad, and in con- 
nection with such men as Jay Gould, John I. Blair, and Samuel 
Sloan, built the extension of that road from iiinghamton to 
Buffalo. While this enumeration does not exhaust the list of 
his responsible trusts, it is sufficient to indicate the confidence 
placed in his sagacity and executive ability as a business man. 

While Mr. Dennis had been investing his fortune so advan- 
tageously in these great corporations, he did not forget the city 
of his adoption, but freely invested in buildings in Newark and 
in other ways helped to enlarge the city. 

Occasionally as a railroad executive he met with some very 
marked incidents. Such a one was his placing a palatial train 
from Jersey City to Washington at the service of the Grand 
Duke Alexis of Russia, then visiting this country. It was a 
graceful and complimentary act in honor of our distinguished 
guest. The Grand Duke recognized the act by a beautiful 
souvenir, and also an autograph letter, which he sent to Mr. 

When the Civil War broke out, threats were freely made that 
if the New Jersey Railroad took troops South, the torch would

be applied to the bridges over the Hackensack and the Passaic. 
General Darcy, the president of the road, and Mr. Dennis, ont 
of the directors, were one whole night looking after these 
bridges and directing the batteries whose guns were trained to 
guard every foot of the endangered structures. They were sur- 
rounded by a mob of desperate men bent on burning the 
bridges. General Darcy and Mr. Dennis, in the carriage of the 
general, were driving to the scene of danger when they were 
beset by the roughs who took the horse from the carriage. 
General Darcy was popular with the men, and finally induced 
them to hitch the horse to the wagon and allow them to drive 
on. It was a night of danger, but prudence, courage and the 
well-loaded cannon brought the matter to a safe conclusion ; so 
that not a single train was detained. 

In 1866 Mr. Dennis determined to aid in founding a public 
library in Newton, Sussex county, N. J., the place of his birth. 
Accordingly he pledged the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars 
on certain conditions. Private subscription were obtained suf- 
ficient to secure his gift. 

On September 28, 1872, the building was dedicated, and 
addresses made by Col. Robert Hamilton, Judge Martin Ryer- 
son, and other distinguished gentlemen of Sussex county. 

"It is with much pleasure," said Colonel Hamilton in deliver- 
ing the address of welcome, "that I am allowed to officiate at 
the presentation of this beautiful building, with its ample 
dimensions and well-ordered apartments. For it we are 
indebted to a gentleman who is with us, who, though a native 
of our town, has gone abroad and prospered, and who in his 
success forgets not his native town and people. I feel assured 
that you will be glad with me to express to him our grateful 
acknowledgments for his generosity in the following resolution : 

'Resolved, that we tender to Alfred L. Dennis, Esq., our most 
lieartfelt thanks for his munificent endowment of twenty-five 
thousand dollars for the library enterprise in Newton, and that 
we present to him our l)est wishes for his continued welfare.' 

The building is 45 feet front l)y 75 feet deep, three stories in 
height, with a basement, has a mansard roof and ornamental 
tower, and is constructed of pressed brick with blue limestone 
corners. The first story is occupied l)y Inisiness offices, the 
second story bv the library and reading room ; and the third 


Story, extending over the whole area of the building, is used 
as a public lecture-room and known as Library Hall. 

Mr. Dennis was an active patron of many worthy objects that 
came before him, and was a trustee, with William E. Dodge, 
S B. Chittenden, William A. Booth, and others, of the Syrian 
Protestant College at Beyrout, Ottoman Empire. 

The foregoing sketch of the life of Alfred Lewis Dennis is 
based on an article printed in Snell's History of Sussex and 
Warren counties, N. J.

Rev. John Patterson Lundy, D.D. 

Of New York City; of Philadelphia. 
I 823- I 892. 

He was born at Danville, Columbia county. Pa., on February 
3, 1823; he was a son of John and Mercy Lundy and a grand- 
son of Ephraim and Elizabeth Lundy. He began his classical 
studies at the Danville Academy, entered Princeton College 
and graduated in 1846. Among his classmates were David A. 
Depue and Bennet Van Sickel, Judges of the Supreme Court 
of Xew Jersey. He entered the Princeton Theological Semi- 
nary and, completing his course there, was ordained a Presby- 
terian minister on February 13, 1849. He was installed as 
pastor of a congregation of that faith at Sing Sing, X. Y., and 
was there two years. Having joined the Protestant Episcopal 
Church, and having been ordained deacon at St. Paul's Church 
by Bishop Upfold on October 25, 1854, he served for a year as 
minister-in-charge of Briar Cliff Chapel, and as chaplain of 
Sing Sing prison. On October 28, 1855, he was ordained a 
priest by Bishop Alonzo Potter at All Saints', Philadelphia, 
and at once became rector of that Church. In 1857, he 
accepted the rectorship of Emanuel Church at Holmesburg, 
Pa., where he remained several years. During this period he 
traveled abroad and visited Europe, Egypt, Palestine and 
Syria. His next rectorship was that of Christ Church, Read- 
ing, Pa. In 1869 he was elected rector of the Church of the 
Holy Apostles, Xew York City, where he remained until 1875, 


when he resigned on account of failing health and was com- 
pelled to give up the active work of the ministry. Although 
endowed by nature with a strong physical constitution, he had 
impaired his health by overwork. After his resignation he 
never held a rectorship, although during a vacancy at St. 
Mark's and at St. Stephen's in the city of Philadelphia he was 
minister-in-charge of each of these important parishes for 
about a year. 

Such is the brief record of his professional life, but it does 
not describe his work as an author. Many .of the articles 
written by Dr. Lundy were printed in the magazines of the 
day; others were published in pamphlet form and attained a 
wide circulation owing to the circumstances under which they 
were issued. I will mention two of these : the one shows his 
position and sympathies on the questions of slavery and seces- 
sion, those volcanoes once burning but now happily extinct ; 
the other relates to the subject of forestry and was published 
in the interest of the Pennsylvania Forestry Association of 
which he was President. 

The Rev. John Hopkins, Bishop of Vermont, wrote a pam- 
phlet on the "Bible View of Slavery," maintaining that the 
relationship of master and slave was not a sin per sc and con- 
demning the ultra-abolitionism of the day ; this he sent to some 
gentlemen in Philadelphia, and it was printed and distributed 
in the fall of 1863 by a political committee as a campaign doc- 
ument. An indignant protest was at once drawn up and signed 
by the clergy of Pennsylvania. Dr. Lundy not only signed the 
protest, but he did more ; he wrote a reply, vigorous, masterly, 
and at times almost virulent, which was published under the 
title of a "Review of Bishop Hopkins' Bible View of Slavery, 
by a Presbyter of the Church in Philadelphia." It proved to 
be a timely and effective article, even though it did fail to con- 
vince the good Bishop. 

Dr. Lundy was one of the first persons in the United States 
to call attention to the science of forestry and to the importance 
of making forest culture and preservation a practical study 
here in America. He was one of the founders of the Pennsyl- 
vania Forestry Association. During the latter part of his life, 
he labored in season and out of season to arouse public interest 
on this subject; for his own views had been intensified by what 
he had seen in other countries once renowned for their fertility. 


but now sterilized by the destruction of their forests, in 1880, 
lie printed for his friends "A Sketch of Adirondack Life " ; and 
trom this, some chapters under the title of "Forestry at Home 
and Abroad" were taken and published in the interest of the 
Pennsylvania forestry Association. 

Dr. Lundy was the author of an anonymous romance called 
"ihe Exiles of Laranai." 

But Dr. Lundy was capable of planning and carrying out 
historical research of a comprehensive character ; and 1 have 
now to speak of the two works on which he bestowed great 
care — literary undertakings at once broad in scope, important 
in theme and original in design. 

At the beginning of his professional career he conceived the 
idea of writing a book of permanent value and selected a topic 
for investigation ; and for twenty years thereafter he kept 
steadily at work collecting and arranging material, developing 
and elaborating his ideas, sometimes traveling abroad to secure 
the needed data, until finally he was able during the centennial 
year to present to the public a volume containing the result of 
his researches. This notable book bore the title "Monumental 
Christianity, or The Art and Symbolism of the Primitive 
Church as Witnesses and Teachers of the One Catholic Faith 
and Practice." It was a quarto volume of 453 pages, enriched 
with one hundred and ninety-six illustrations, about twenty of 
them being full-paged or two-paged ; it was brought out in 
January, 1876, by James W. Bouton, New York City. 

Portions of the preface to the book are autobiographical in 
character ; so I have ventured to select from it some detached 

"My first interest in archaeology," says Dr. Lundy, "was 
awakened about thirty years ago while a student at Princeton 
by reading Stephen's two works on 'Central America' and 
'Yucatan.' Some years afterwards when living in a retired 
country parsonage, the works of Layard on 'Nineveh and 
Babylon,' Belzoni's 'Egypt and Nubia,' and Wilkinson's 
'Ancient Egyptians' were read with equal wonder and delight. 
It is now nearly twenty years ago that I asked myself the ques- 
tion as to what had been done in a like direction for Christian- 
ity and the Church. I found that nothing or next to nothing 
existed in the English language, although there were able 
works bearing upon the subject in Italian, French, German, and 


Latin. But they are more or less controversial. Hence my 
thought and endeavor have here taken the direction of an 
appeal to the earliest Christian monuments to ascertain, as far 
as possible, what evidence they contain as to the real and entire 
truth of primitive Christianity. But this made an inspection 
of the monuments necessary. Accordingly I went to Italy and 
sojourned at Rome as long as possible, where I spent my time 
chiefly in visiting such of the Catacombs as were accessible, 
copying inscriptions from the Lapidarian Gallery and else- 
where, inspecting numerous sarcophagi, examining the mosaics 
of the old Churches, and following as I could the results of 
IVIarchi's explorations as well as those of De Rossi. Here 1 
learned that a stupendous monumental record of Christianity 
exists equal, if not superior, in richness to any in Egypt, 
Assyria, Babylonia, Mexico, or Central America, as to the 
religious manners and customs of their ancient inhabitants. I 
kept a full journal of all that I saw and learned which has well 
served me in this investigation. Naples, Pompeii and Poes- 
tum were next visited, where I found much monumental evi- 
dence of the vices and profligacy, culture and elegance, shame 
and glory of defunct Paganism. Thence I went to Egypt to see 
something of its ruins and monuments, and to procure some 
antique bronzes, scarabei, and other curiosities. Palestine and 
Syria came next in the journey ; and Jerusalem, Damascus, 
Baalbec, Smyrna, and Constantinople furnished some hints and 
materials for the work. 

"I am not conscious of any mistakes as to matters of fact, 
or of any perversions of them. Just as I have found things, 
so I have thought it good to write them down. Mistakes of 
judgment or mistakes of interpretation, there may be; but I 
have patiently tried to find the truth of all the symbols here 
represented, by consulting contemporary literature. 

"In reproducing the original engravings of the monuments 
and some of the monuments themselves, I have preferred the 
photo-engraving process to the wood cut or the steel engraving 
to secure greater accuracy. The illustrations, therefore, are 
fac-similes, true and exact, rather than beautiful and capti- 
vating to the eye. 

"The work has been to me a very pleasing occupation. If 
it should in the least degree aid any doubtful or skeptical mind 
in solving the mysteries and dii^culties of religion, or if it 


should give to the Christian mind any confirmation of the 
faith, my labor has not been in vain." 

Dr. Lundy's life naturally divides itself into three periods. 
The first was preparatory and includes his course at Princeton 
College and at the Theological Seminary. The second was the 
period of his active work in the ministry and covers twenty 
years, extending from 1855, when he became rector at All 
Saints", to 1875, when he resigned from the Church of the Holy 
Apostles. The third and closing period of his life was passed 
in retirement at Philadelphia, where for sixteen years he 
devoted himself with unwearied energy to the preparation of a 
historical work, the scope of which was larger than that of his 
Monumental Christianity. It was "A History of Worship 
from Primitive Times." This was a field in which his studies 
were far-reaching and in which he labored with a keen interest. 

But he did not live to finish his undertaking. 

He died on Sunday, December 11, 1892, in his seventieth 
year; his funeral service was held in St. Stephen's Church, 
Philadelphia, on Wednesday, December 14; and his remains 
were laid at rest in the churchyard of St. James' Church, 
Bristol, Pa. 

Dr. Lundy's conversational powers were charming ; his voice 
was well-trained and musical ; and he had a bright, cheerful 
manner that made him a welcome guest. He was well read in 
the liturgies of every age, and his knowledge of theology was 
extensive ; but his attainments were not confined to one domain. 
He was an antiquarian and an enthusiastic Egyptologist ; scien- 
tific topics also attracted him and enriched his thought. He 
never let his love for history and science encroach on his pas- 
toral or social duties; but when these were over, and his time 
for study and research had come, he treasured every moment 
and applied himself diligently to his investigations. He was 
genial, studious and devout. Those who knew him best loved 
him most and most thoroughly appreciated his manliness, his 
varied learning, his modest estimate of himself and his tireless 

At a meeting of the clergy of the diocese of Pennsylvania, 
held at St. Stephen's parish house, December 14, 1892, the fol- 
lowing resolution was adopted : 

"Resolved, That inasmuch as it hath pleased God in His 
wise providence to take out of this world the soul of our dear 


brother John P. Lundy, D.D., we wish to place on record our 
affectionate memory of his godly life, of his great learning 
whereby he enriched the Church of God, of his high character 
wherein he was an example to the flock, and of his gentle spirit 
whereby he showed himself easy to be entreated and that the 
same spirit was in him which was also in Christ." 

The Clerical Brotherhood of Philadelphia on December 19, 
1892, unanimously adopted the following minute: 

"The Clerical Brotherhood has heard with regret of the 
death of the Rev. John P. Lundy, D.D. Though only an 
occasional attendant upon our meetings, we have learned to 
esteem him highly. In the several parishes in this and other 
dioceses, of which he was a rector, he did faithful work for the 
Master. And when by reason of ill-health he was obliged to 
relinquish the active duties of the ministry, he devoted himself 
to a line of research in a field which has hitherto not received 
the attention it deserves. In his 'Monumental Christianity' he 
sets forth in a strong yet clear manner a noble defense of the 
Faith once for all delivered to the saints ; and in a work to 
which so many of his latter years were devoted it will doubtless 
be found that he left behind him an equally strong testimony 
for the truth as it is in Jesus."

Samuel Lundy I. whose name stands at the beginning of this 
Group was the youngest son of Richard Lundy 11. and his wife 
Ehzabeth Large. He was born in Bucks county, Pennsylvania, 
on 13 of 12 month, 1727, and lived there during the first ten 
years of his life ; then he removed with his parents to Maiden 
Creek, Berks county, in the same province and lived there ten 
years. In 1747, Samuel came with his parents and settled per- 
manently at the great meadows in Warren County, New Jersey. 
He departed this life the 14 day of 2 month, 1801, at the age 
of seventy-four, and was buried in Friends" yard at the Hard- 
wick Meeting-house. 

Samuel was married twice. His first wife was Ann 
Schooley, daughter of Samuel and Avis (HoUoway) Schooley, 
granddaughter of Thomas and Sarah (Parker) Schooley, and 
great granddaughter of Robert Schooley. Ann was born 29 
day of 6th month (August), 1728, and departed this life the 
22nd day of the 3rd month, 1758, and was decently buried the 
24th of the same in Friends' burying ground at Hardwick. 
Samuel and Ann made their first declaration of intention to 
marry before the Kingwood Monthly Meeting on 12 day, 7 
mo., 1751, and were married on 8 day of 9 month following. 
They had three sons, Isaac, Daniel, and George. After the 
death of Ann, Samuel married on 20th day of nth month, 
1765, Sarah Willets, daughter of Joseph Willets. Sarah died 13 
day of 2 month, 1824, and was buried at Hardwick. Samuel 
and Sarah made their first declaration of intention of mar- 
riage before the Kingwood Monthly Meeting on loth day 
of loth month, 1765, and were married on 20th day of nth 
month following. They had three sons and five daughters, 
Ann, Levi, Edith, Samuel -II., Achsah, Jesse, Sarah, and Amy. 

Each of these eleven children grew to maturity, married and 
has descendants now living. 

In 1765 there was a great scarcity of bread-stuff throughout 
the northern part of the province ; and the people had eaten up 
all their seed grain so that they had none for future sowing and 
were in danger of starving, and were actually Suffering from 
sickness caused by living too exclusively on a diet of meat. The 
legislature came to their relief and voted to loan money to the 
sufferers so that they could buy food and seed. Samuel Lundy 
I, was appointed a member of the committee to supervise the 


loaning of these provincial funds, a task requiring delicate tact 
and judgment. 

Samuel was the sole executor of the Last Will and Testa- 
ment of his father, Richard Lundy II., and by the terms thereof 
inherited all the real estate which his father then held (1772), 
a large farm having been deeded in 1768 to Jacob. 

On September 20, 1759, the Board of Justices and Free- 
holders in and for the County of Sussex held a meeting at the 
house of the widow Wolverton in Newton township and elected 
Samuel Lundy to be County Collector, an office to which he 
was frequently re-elected, serving the County of Sussex in that 
capacity for thirteen years, 1759-64 and 1767-76. It will be 
observed that his services as treasurer of the county ceased in 
1776; his retirement from the office became necessary because 
the financial strength of the community was soon to be devoted 
to warlike purposes, a policy contrary to the principles of the 
Society of Friends. He was a member of the Township Com- 
mittee for two years, 1774 and 1775 ; and he represented Hard- 
wick township on the Board of Justices and Freeholders for 
seven years, 1765-1772. 

Samuel Lundy was appointed a Judge of the Pleas for Sus- 
sex county in 1772. Previous to the Revolutionary War, the 
legislative power of the province of New Jersey was vested in 
a Governor, a Council and an Assembly. I quote from the 
minutes of a Council held at Perth Amboy on Thursday the 
17th of September, 1772, his Excellency, William Franklin, 
being at that time Governor of the province: "His Excellency 
was pleased to nominate Jacob Starn and Samuel Lundy to be 
Judges of the Pleas in the County of Sussex, and Jacob Lundy, 
Abia Brown, Robert Allison, Abraham Van Camp, and 
Richard Bowlby to be Justices of the Peace in said county ; to 
which the Council assented." See New Jersey Archives, Vol. 
XVIII. , page 294. For the purpose of ready identification 
among the several individuals in that community each bearing 
the name of Samuel Lundy, it is sometimes convenient to 
designate the Samuel Lundy whose name is at the head of this 
Group as Judge Samuel Lundy. 

Judge Lundy built on his homestead a substantial stone 
dwelling-house, which is still used as a residence, a frame addi- 


tion having since been built at the end ; one of the stones in the 
chimney bears the inscription "Aug., 1780." 

The marriage certificate of Samuel Lundy and his first wife, 
Ann Schooley, is entered on page 8 of the Record of Marriages 
for Hardwick Monthly Meeting. 

Whereas Samuel Lundy of the Township of Hardwick in the 
County of Morris and in the Western Division of the Province 
of New Jersey and Anne Schooley, daughter of Samuel 
Schooley of the same place, Haveing declared their Intentions 
of marriage with each other before several Monthly Meetings 
of the People called Quakers at Kingwood in the County of

Daniel Lundy, son of Samuel I. and Ann, married in 1787 
Elizabeth Laing, b. 29 of 8. 1765, daughter of John and 
Hannah (Webster) Laing. They made their first declaration 
of intention to marry, before the Kingwood Meeting on 13 day 
9 mo., 1787. 

Daniel's farm was situated along the banks of the Pequest 


river above the Friends' Meeting-house near Allamuchy, War- 
ren county, N. J. The initials "D L" are carved on a beam 
in the barn and are still pointed out and interpreted as Daniel 
Lundy. When Daniel died, the farm passed to his son Daniel 
Lundy, Jr., who sold it on January 15, 1825, to William Hart. 
In the Clerk's ofifice at Belvidere, Warren county, N. J., there 
is a deed relating to this same farm dated June 2, 1827, and 
given by Elizabeth (Laing) Lundy to her son Daniel Lundy, 
Jr., "it being the intent of the party of the first part to convey 
her dowe^- right in all the lands of her late husband Daniel

By deed dated March 6, 1784, George Lundy, yeoman, of 
Hardwick, obtained seventy acres of land from Nathaniel 
Pierson and his wife Ann, the consideration therefor being one 
hundred and thirty pounds lawful money in hand paid, and said 
land lying in Hardwick and being butted by lands belongmg 
to Samuel Lundy, Charles Coxe and others. 

By deed dated November 5, 1787, George Lundy obtained 
from James Kinsey of Burlington county, N. J., 130 acres of 
Proprietary Rights, land that had never been located. The 
consideration was £15 12s. This transaction is a good illustra- 
tion of the method of securing real estate in colonial times. 
The instrument shows that John Hind had obtained on August 
4, 1773, from the West Jersey Proprietors a land warrant for 
40,000 acres of land unlocated ; and that James Kinsey had 
purchased from Hind's estate a right to 200 acres of this land 
"to be laid forth and surveyed anywhere in the Western 
Division of New Jersey not before legally located." Kinsey 
now subdivides his warrant, retaining 70 and selling the 
remaining 130 acres. George Lundy, as soon as he received 
his deed for the 130 acres of Proprietary Right, selected that 
amount of land in Hardwick adjoining that which he already 
owned, called in an authorized surveyor to stake it and map it 
out for him, and completed his title by going to the land-office 
at Burlington and filing papers given to him by the surveyor. 

On January i, 1794, George Lundy, farmer, of Hardwick, 
obtained by deed from Thomas Lundy, mason, of the same 
place, in consideration of £55, thirty-eight and one-quarter 
acres of land, abutting land already owned by George Lundy.

Esther Lundy (of George, Samuel, Richard II.) married, 
about 1812, W^illiam Gibbs, who died in April, 1847, ^^ the age 
of 67 years, son of John and Nancy (Swayze) Gibbs. Five 
•children: T. Edith Lundy, d. September 25, 1834, aged 21 
years. 10 months, 7 days. II. Morris Sharp, d. August 17. 
1838, aged 24 years, 2 months, 11 days. HI. Cynthia, d. Sep- 


tember 19, 1855, in 40th year of her age.. IV. William S. H., 
d. May 4, 1844, aged 26 years, 5 months, 12 days. V. George 
Lundy, b. about 1820; d. about 1871. Cynthia was the only 
one of these who married and left a family. After the death 
of Esther, William married Sarah Dixon, and about 1829 
removed to Corydon, Warren county, Pa. He was a Justice 
of the Peace for many years. When William left New Jersey, 
his daughter Edith remained at her grandfather George 
Lundy's, where she died alx)ut five years afterward. 

George Lundy Gibbs went to Ohio with his uncle Jonathan 
Lundy, studied medicine, and settled at New Albany, Indiana, 
where he practised his profession. He never married. During 
the war, he attended the families of soldiers without charge ; 
he was very decided and outspoken in support of the Laiion, 
and a plot was made to assassinate him, but one of the con- 
spirators cautioned him not to take his usual route, and so the 
attempt failed. He visited his kinsmen in New Jersey; and, 
alluding to his excellent health and splendid physique, he 
remarked that he considered himself good for a hundred years. 
I'ut he died suddenly soon after his return to Indiana. 

The following extract is from a letter headed "Corydon, ]\'i., 
November 6, 1831," and written by William Gibbs to Samuel 
Laing of Johnsonburg, N. J. : 

"I live on the Alleghany river where the State of New York 
and of Pennsylvania crosses said river. I am getting on in years 
and cannot stand portage. My family is well. They started 
the 6 of July in the evening, and landed at Buffalo the 15th 
and at home the i6th. I wish there could be som.e way for me 
to get Edith here. I should have sent for her when I sent for 
the others, but I thought she had one year to stay with her 
grandmother. If you or any safe person should come near 
this place, I will pay the expense if you will bring her here. 
The best way to get here is to take the canal and come to 
Buffalo, thence to Portland, and by land 8 miles to Mayville, 
then by water to Jamestown, then by land 25 miles to this place. 
I live 4 or 5 miles from the Pounds, that is, Thomas, Daniel, 
and Jonathan."

The children of the earliest settlers were taught at private 
houses. A natural desire on the part of parents that their chil- 
dren should be able to read and write would lead to a confer- 
ence among the neighbors ; the services of some member of one 
of the families would be available, a grown up daughter 
perhaps or a maiden aunt ; a vacant room would be secured con- 
venient for the children, and a school opened. Little tots 
would gather there in fall and spring, but would give way in 
part during winter to learners of a larger size. A home-school 
of this kind could be readily shifted from one part of the 
neighborhood to another, according to the ever-varying cir- 
cumstances of the different households. Sometimes abandoned 
dwellings or empty tenement-houses would be used tempor- 
arily for school purposes. When special buildings were put up, 
it was generally done by the united work of several of the lead- 
ing families, the natural result of this being that those who 
built the school-house could control it, choosing between rival 
teachers or closing it up altogether. 

This system, or rather lack of system, was perhaps the best 
possible for those days ; but in the course of time reformers 
arose and agitated for better schools with this result that in 
January, 1838, the State legislature passed an act which author- 
ized the formation of local boards to manage school aflFairs, and

directed the appointment of examiners to license teachers, and 
empowered townships to raise school-money by taxation. 

An old school-house which stood between Levi Lundy's and 
Jonathan Willson's appears to have been the first building in 
that neighborhood devoted exclusively to school purposes. 
Here taught John Armstrong (not of kin to Nathan Arm- 
strong the pioneer) and Air. Phipps, and also Daniel V'liet, who 
married Permelia Lundy. It was abandoned in 1838 ; and 
school was opened in the new building which had been erected 
at the upper corner of the road on the property of David 

David Lundy and Sally, his wife, by deed dated August 13, 
1838, donated to the first trustees of the Union District of the 
townships of Hardwick and Independence a lot whereon to 
build a school-house "exclusively for the only proper use and 
purpose of schooling and educating children." 

This was the Southtown school which for the next twenty 
years was the best school in that section of the country. The 
teachers were far above the average in ability and ambition, 
nearly every one of them having enjoyed unusual educational 
advantages; some were studying law, and others were prepar- 
ing for the ministry. They were able to teach advanced sub- 
jects and were anxious to do it; and thus they attracted and 
retained in school a large class of young men and women. 
The drill in reading was especially thorough ; English grammar 
including analysis and parsing received much attention and 
was studied by all the larger pupils. There were classes in 
rhetoric, physiology, chemistry, botany, and astronomy. 

The names of these school-masters were Mr. Decatur, Albert 
Waterman, who was the son of a sea captain, and pleased the 
children by showing them shells and other curios from the 
Indian ocean, Mr. Burnham, Salmon Fay, who was 'slightly 
lame, but very much liked, Mr. Norris, Jonathan Cotton, who 
married a Warbasse, Samuel Stevenson, who had been edu- 
cated at a Friends' High School in Pennsylvania, and who was 
modest and retiring and in every respect a first-class teacher, 
Elam M. Smith, who was a son of David Smith of Lafayette, 
N. J., and Jesse Berry of New York State, who was an excel- 
lent teacher, but who was fond of changing schools, and taught 
ofif and on between the going and coming of other teachers. 
Three Gaylord brothers also taught here ; of these Wilberforce, 


who was somewhat of an orator, came first ; he was followed by 
Jackson and then by Edson, a younger brother, who had the 
school in 1851-2. Then came Ira K. Willson and Elder J. S. 
Alaxwell, the Christian minister. Decatur and the four who 
followed him, and also the Gaylord brothers, were from New 
England, from the same neighborhood in which Ethan Allen 
was born. 

The text-books were Cobb's Speller, Daboll's Arithmetic, 
Kirkham's Grammar, Olney's Geography, the Juvenile 
Readers, the National Preceptor, Newman's Rhetoric, and 
Calvin Cutter's Physiology, Anatomy and Hygiene. The 
Philosophy, the Botany and the Geology were by Comstock ; 
the text-book in astronomy was Burritt's Geography of the 
Heavens, the constellations being traced by the aid of an excel- 
lent star-atlas. 

Books were bought by the trustees and loaned to the scholars 
free of charge, some of the patrons not being able to purchase 
books in the advanced subjects which their children were able 
and anxious to study. William W. Wilson was County Super- 
intendent ; and when he visited Southtown in the forenoon, 
there would be no school in the afternoon, for the teacher 
would go along with him to inspect other schools ; and Jesse 
Berry used to tell with pride how the Superintendent turned to 
him once and said : "How I wish we had some of your 
scholars here to read for them." 

Berry was a Whig; Moses Hazen, who lived near by was a 
Democrat ; both were very well informed on the political issues 
of the day ; and they would sit in the shade on the rocks near 
the school and argue by the hour. There was a debating 
society for men, which held regular meetings in the school- 
house at night ; political questions were discussed freely, and 
sometimes the room would be filled to overflowing with people 
who had come some distance, either to take part or to listen. 

It was Edson Gaylord who encouraged the pupils to make 
flower-gardens on the play-ground. All the narrow strips of 
soil along the ledges were carefully utilized. The teacher 
supervised operations so as to secure the proper general effect, 
and he helped shift the larger rocks so as to make the terraces 
more regular, while the children carried stones and built fences. 
It was a hard task and a long one, but they all worked with a 
will, morning, noon and ni^ht, and thought it was fun. The 



soil was marked out into beds and a definite portion was 
assigned to each pupil to plant and cultivate according to his 
pleasure. Seeds and bulbs and roots were brought from home, 
the selection of each having formed a topic of long and ani- 
mated discussion. 

While Edson Gaylord was teaching at Southtown, there 
was a total eclipse of the sun. He explained in detail to all the 
children the cause of the eclipse, using diagrams on the black- 
board to show the relative positions of the sun, moon and earth. 
He had the children come to school for several days a half hour 
earlier than usual so as to gain time ; and then during the after- 
noon of the eclipse no lessons were heard, but all the pupils 
remained on the playground watching the eclipse through the 
smoked glasses which they had prepared and brought from 
home. Some of the children were afraid, and certainly it was a 
sight to inspire awe ; for as the eclipse became total, the trees 
cast gloomy shadows, the stars came out, and the hens went to 
roost in the little barn near by. 

The frequent repetition of the names Lundy and Willson in 
these memoranda adds point to the story told about the Scotch- 
Irishman who came there an entire stranger and, finding that 
no school was being taught at the time, applied for the use of 
the building, and then according to the custom of those days, 
started through the settlement to get the parents to put their 
names on his subscription list, pledging payment for so many 
days' attendance at school on the part of their children. He got 
subscribers fast enough, for children were numerous and very 
healthy ; but he was surprised at the lack of variety in the 
family names, and so at the next house, when the father made 
his appearance, the Irishman said to him, "Sir, is your name 
Willson or Lundy? I never saw such a place. It is Lundy 
and Willson, and Willson and Lundy all the time. You are a 
very mixed multitude." 

The Quaker Settlement was a station on the Underground 
Railroad. Slaves fleeing from bondage would pass through 
Philadelphia to Burlington, N. J. ; and then traveling north- 
ward by way of Quakertown or Plainfield would reach the 
Quaker Settlement. Here they obtained rest and food, and 
were concealed in barns and cellars. Witnesses to these 
scenes are still living ; they remember hearing voices of prayer 
from fugitives hidden in the cellar, and they remember seeing 


a black mother start like a wild bird as she sat behind the stove 
feeding her two children when she heard a horse and carriage 
driven up to the door. 

These fugitives came in the night and went away in the 
night ; one morning they would be there, and a morning or 
two after they would be gone; they were always carefully 
directed to the next station and sometimes taken a part of the 
way concealed in the bottom of a wagon. The next station in 
their long flight to Canada was among the fainilies of some 
Friends who lived on the drowned lands in the valley of the 
Wallkill river, Sussex county, near the New York State line.

They remained under the care of that Meeting for seventeen

of removal for himself and his wife and their eight children to 
the Deep River Monthly Meeting in North Carolina. The 
family went South and settled in Stokes county, N. C, one of 
the northern tier of counties bordering on Virginia. Danbury 
is the county-seat of Stokes ; and a correspondent of mine who 
lives in that town says that there are two deeds bearing the 
Willets name recorded in the office of the Registrar of Deeds, 
one dated 1802, and given by Elizabeth Pike to Gabriel Willets 
for land on Muddy Creek; the other dated 1804 and given by 
Gabriel Willets to David Phillips for land on the Middle Fork 
of Muddy Creek ; said tracts now lie in Forsyth county which 
was organized about 1850.

----/ paper by William Clinton Armstrong, read October 21, iSg"/, 
before the Historical Club, Rutgers College, Nezv Jersey. 

Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen : 

American history is wide in its range of topics and abundant 
in its material ; yet amid this variety and richness, the student 
need not be confused if he keeps steadily in mind the two vital 
issues that unify our history : the formation and preserva- 
tion of the Union, and the growth and abolition of Slavery. It 
is a safe rule to regard those events in our history as the most 
important which have exerted the most direct influence on the 
one or the other of these great issues. 

The great movements of history, not its episodes, should be 
the central topics of study. 

But historical movements as they sweep onward become 
complex and difficult to analyze, and hence it is the part of 
wisdom to study the beginnings of great movements. "Know- 
est thou not," asks the broad-browed Plato in his immortal 
Republic, "knowest thou not that the chiefest part of every 
work is its beginning?" True, and therefore it is eminently 
wise for the student of history to emphasize the beginnings and 
to investigate them thoroughly, going back often to the ori- 
ginal motives and first actors in any great reform. 

Bearing these admonitions in mind, I have chosen for the 
subject of my paper this evening, Benjamin T.undy, the 
Founder of American Abolitionism, a theme that relates direct- 
1} to the slavery conflict and takes us back to the days when 
the advocates of human freedom were a feeble folk. 

After the close of the Revolutionary war anti-slavery views 
were quite popular in this country, but activity along that line 
soon ceased. This early anti-slavery sentiment seems to have 
been a mere corollary to the discussion that had raged concern- 
ing the rights of man as set forth in the Declaration of Tnde- 
l^endence. It never called forth much self-sacrifice but it did 
lead to the extinction of slaverv in the Northern .States. 


Slavery discussion previous to the War of 1812 was only the 
echo of a storm that had passed ; slavery discussion after the 
War of 181 2 was the muttering prelude of a coming cyclone. 

No greater conflict has ever rocked this continent than that 
which grew out of the agitation commenced by Benjamin 
Lundy, the abolitionist. 

"What whets the knife 
For the Union's life? 
Hark to the answer : — Slavery." 

Two generations ago abolitionism was in its formative 
period. The pioneers of the movement were beginning their 
labors. They were establishing newspapers, inaugurating a 
system of public lectures and organizing their scattered follow- 
ers into a compact body for the purpose of disseminating their 
doctrine more effectively by united efforts. 

Then they were poor, despised, persecuted, because they 
dared to work for the overthrow of slavery ; but they have 
proved themselves to be the noblest group of reformers in 
.'\merican history. V>y their toils and struggles, they laid anew 
the moral foundations of a continent ; and among this band of 
heroes. Benjamin T>iuidy stands first in time, in entire conse- 
cration, in patient perseverance and in self-sacrifice. 

Horace Greeley, a man well quilified to speak, says of 
Lundy : "He was the first of our countrymen who devoted his 
life and all his powers to the cause of the slaves. He gave to 
the cause of emancipation neither wealth, nor eloquence, nor 
lofty abilities ; for he had them not ; but his courage, persever- 
ance and devotion were unsurpassed." 

Dr. Von Hoist, of the Universitv of Chicago, in his Consti- 
tutional Historv of the I"^nited States, speaks of Benjamin 
Lundy as the father of the abolitionists, mentions his wander- 
ings and his sacrifices, and then adds : "The XTXth century can 
scarcely point to another instance in which the command of 
Christ to leave all things and follow Him has been so literally 
construed and followed." 

Benjamin Lundv, son of Josenh and Elizabeth (Shotwell) 
T undy, was born 4th day of ist Month, 1789, in Sussex county. 
N. L. and lived there for nineteen years. He started to school 
at the age of four and learned his letters: but his mother died 
and this loss took hnn out of school for two vears. After his 


father's second marriage, Benjamin went to school for two 
years and learned to read and write ; this was all the schooling 
he ever had except one quarter's attendance during the winter 
he was sixteen when he devoted himself to working the prob- 
lems in the back part of the arithmetic. Thus his book-learning 
was very meager. 

Benjamin was brought up in the religious faith of the So- 
ciety of Friends and was trained to their plain way of living ; 
2nd in this faith and way he lived and died. 

He was frail of body. While yet a boy he tried to do a man's 
work on a farm, with this result, — that he became partially 
deaf and also impaired his health so seriously as to cause 
anxiety. Finally it was decided to try a complete change of 
environment ; and so in his nineteenth year, he went to Ohio 
and stopped at Mt. Pleasant, a cluster of six log-cabins. 

Benjamin's general health improved, but partial deafness 
continued to be throughout his life an embarrassing affliction 
to him as traveler and lecturer. 

Having resolved to learn a trade, he went to Wheeling, ten 
miles away, now the metropolis of West Virginia, and entered 
into apprenticeship with a saddler. There he remained four 
years, receiving wages as a skilled workman during the last 
eighteen months. 

Since Benjamin Lundy was the originator of the abolition 
movement in the United States, it becomes a matter of interest 
to note the origin of the idea in his own mind. As bearing on 
this phase of the subject, the beginning of the beginning, I will 
state the testimony of the Society of Friends concerning 
slavery; T will then describe slavery as Benjamin T.undy saw 
it during his youth in New Jersey and as he saw it during his 
apprenticeship in West Virginia. 

The doctrine of the Society of Friends against human 
slavery was clear and strong ; the Quakers have been the bold- 
est and most aggressive advocates of personal freedom. No 
denomination of Christians has a nobler record in opposition to 
slavery than the Quakers. Such was the religious training re- 
ceived by Benjamin Lundv; and often during his vouth, at 
meetings for worship, had he heard holv voices raised in 
solemn warnings against the sin of slave-holding. 

There were only a few slaves on the Jersey frontier; the 
census taken in Lundv's native township shows that there wa>^ 


at that time only one negro slave to every fifty-two white in- 
habitants. The bondage was of a mild type ; masters, slaves, 
bound bo3's and hired men all went to the same field and asso- 
ciated and worked together ; it was only in messing and lodging 
that there was any distinction between the white laborer and 
the black. There was no profit in slave labor among the rock- 
ribbed hills of Jersey ; it was, however, a domestic convenience 
to have a Dinah to cook and a Pompey to take care of the 
horses ; but the possession of a family of blacks was coveted 
most as a mark of social standing ; for in those days wherever 
you saw a slave, his master was sure to be a county judge, or 
a church elder, or a captain of militia. 

Perhaps in no part of the United States had negro slavery 
assumed a milder form than among the mountains of northern 
New Jersey ; and perhaps in no part of the United States did 
the system of African slavery exhibit its repulsive features in 
so open a form unrelieved by any redeeming trait, as it 
did at this very time at the city of Wheeling. Such 
a thing as the slave trade was unknown in northern 
New Jersey during the period of Benjamin's boyhood, but 
when he entered Wheeling he found the slave trade organized 
and carried on systematically. It was the traffic in human 
llesh on a commercial basis that confronted Benjamin. 

Observe the position of Wheeling. It was on the Ohio river 
the boundary line of the slave country, the line over which Ben- 
jamin oscillated every week. He worked at his trade in \'ir- 
ginia, a slaveholding state ; but during First Days, he visited 
his friends and attended religious services across the liver in 
Ohio, a free-soil state. The contrast between free labor and 
slave labor was kept continually before his mind 

Observe also, what is still more important, the position of 
Wheeling as related to the western and eastern group of slave- 
holding states. In the west, Kentucky and ]\Iissouri were be- 
ing rapidly settled. Emigrants hungry for land were rushing 
there in crowds and there was a constant demand for slaves to 
operate the new plantations. In the east, IMaryland and \'ir- 
ginia were the breeding-ground for this western market. Here 
the slaves were raised and sold to traders. These traders, 
when they had gathered a sufficient number of negroes, chained 
them together in long gangs to prevent escape into the free 
states here so near at hand, and marched them westward, head- 


ing for the Ohio river, where the slaves could be placed on 
boats and floated down to their destination. As these gangs 
started westward from the various parts of Maryland and Vir- 
ginia, they naturally converged and struck the National Turn- 
pike that had been built by Congress, and followed it to its 
western terminus, — Wheeling on the Ohio. 

Thus it was that Benjamin Lundy frequently saw these 
coffles passing through the city. He saw no glimpses of 
happy plantation life, only the hard, stern realities of the 
slave trade. He heard no melodies from their lips, only the 
monotonous clicking of the chains as the long lines filed slowly 

It seemed to him like an endless procession of woe, to see 
company after company of these wretched beings come down 
the road from the mountain gorge and pass through the streets 
on their way to the slave pens by the river to await transporta- 
tion. The gloomy fate of those held in bondage touched the 
heart of Benjamin Lundy ; and his whole being revolted against 
the iniquitous traffic in human flesh and against the legalized 
system of human slavery. 

Benjamin left Wheeling in t8t2 and returned to ]\lt. Pleas- 
ant, Ohio, where he secured employment at his trade. Here he 
had a friend, William Lewis, and William Lewis had a sister 
Esther, and Esther Lewis was a fine girl, in Benjamin's oj^inion 
a very fine girl. Two years passed and then Benjamin came 
east on a visit to his father who was now living in lUuMingtoii 
county, N. J. He stayed during the summer and fall antl this 
long visit enables us to have a good view of the young saddler. 
He was slender, and slightly under middle size, with light com- 
plexion, blue eyes and wavy hair. He was cheerful, unassum- 
ing and studious. A younger sister remembered him as always 
having a book in his hand. 

Returning to Mt. Pleasant he was married by Friends' cere- 
mony, 2 mo. 13, 181 5, to Esther, daughter of Henry and Susan 
Lewis. He bought a lot at St. Clairsville, Ohio, eleven miles 
west of Wheeling, built thereon a dwelling-house and a sho]), 
and started in business for himself. Harness-making was a 
good trade in a community where every spring brought a 
swarm of new settlers and every settler cleared up a new farm. 
The demand for saddlery was brisk ; so he enlarged his shop 
and secured two apprentice boys. He paid ofi^ his debts and 


found he was worth three thousand dollars. His sales still in- 
creasing he secured more apprentice boys and also employed 
some journeymen. A competence was within his grasp; a few 
years more and he would be beyond the reach of want. 

We have seen how Benjamin Lundy had his mind and heart 
aroused against slavery ; we will now trace the steps by which 
he became actively engaged in anti-slavery work. 

Lundy's convictions were strong and deep ; and his feelings 
of pity for the slave were so keen as to fill his soul with an- 
guish ; but so far as can be learned, no act of his life previous to 
the completion of his twenty-fifth year (1815) had ever been 
prompted or even influenced in the slightest degree by his views 
on the subject of slavery. 

But this was to change quickly. He began housekeeping, as 
I have said, in the spring of 181 5, at St. Clairsville. As soon 
as he was fairly settled in a home of his own, he invited some 
of his new neighbors to come to his house on the evening of a 
certain day. Five or six persons came at the appointed time. 
To them he unbosomed his feelings. Finding sympathetic 
hearers, he proposed a public meeting for further agitation. 
His plan was approved, a date fixed and the public invited. At 
this second meeting, which was also held at Lundy's house, an 
anti-slavery association was formed called the Union Humane 
Society. It grew rapidly and soon enrolled five hundred 
members. From this local success Lundy conceived the idea 
of organizing a number of such societies, and to this end he 
wrote an address to the philanthropists of the United States. 
He made five or six copies with his own hand and circulated 
them through the neighborhood. That autumn a yearly meet- 
ing of the Society of Friends was held at Mt. Pleasant. Lundy 
attended the meeting and distributed some more manuscript 
copies of his appeal. 

Some of the Friends who thus received copies, on returning 
to their respective homes, organized similar associations and, 
in making a report thereof to Lundy urged him to print his 
appeal for general distribution. Lundy complied with their 
suggestion and published his "Address" on his birthday, Jan- 
uary 4, 18 16. 

Horace Greeley in his American Conflict, speaks of this 
circular of Lundy's and says that it contained the germ of the 
whole anti-slavery movement. 


Lundy begins his appeal with a skillful allusion to the tri- 
umphant suppression of the African slave trade, and then drives 
home the thought that the seeds of the evil system had already 
been planted in our soil, that these seeds were springing up and 
producing increase, and that the mere closing of our harbors to 
the importation of new slaves from Africa did not touch the 
root of the evil. He urges renewed effort and proposes the fol- 
lowing lines of action : 

1. That societies should be formed wherever a sufficient 
number of persons could be induced to join in them. 

2. That a title should be adopted common to all the societies. 

3. That they should all have a uniform constitution, "vary- 
ing only on account of necessity arising from location." 

4. That a correspondence should be kept up between the so- 
cieties to promote their common purpose ; and 

5. That delegates should be chosen to meet in general con- 
vention for the transaction of any important business that 
might arise. 

He closes his circular with these solemn words of consecra- 
tion : "T have had this subject long in contemplation, and T have 
now taken it up, fully determined for one never to lay it down 
while I breathe or until the end shall be attained." 

A local newspaper, The Philanthropist, had recently been 
established at Mt. Pleasant, and the proprietor, Charles Os- 
borne, opened the columns of his paper for the discussion of 
slavery. Lundy saw here an opportunity to aid tlie anti-slavery 
cause. He selected articles wherever he could find them and 
had them published in the Philanthropist. As soon as he 
gained confidence in the tone of the paper, he began to canvass 
his neighborhood for subscribers. Whenever the editor opened 
Lundy's letters he found therein anti-slavery clippings and the 
names of some new subscribers and a few lines written by 
Lundy himself; all these were duly appreciated, for Lundy's 
comments began to appear among the editorial paragraphs. 

It was not long before Lundy received an invitation to assist 
in editing the paper. He was surprised ; and mistrusting his 
own ability, he hesitated. The invitation being repeated, he 
consented to try, and soon his articles appeared regularly on 
the editorial page. He still plied his saddler's tools and talked 
harness to his customers ; but his mind was ten miles away in 
the ofiice of the Philanthropist. He was next invited to become 


a partner in the printing business and to come to Mt. Pleasant 
and take charge of the office. He decided to accept the ofifer, 
and proceeded at once to close out the harness-business. He 
discharged his journeymen ; and thinking that the best market 
would be on the western frontier, he took a load of finished 
articles to Missouri to sell and was gone six months. When he 
reached home, he took all the rest of his stock and put it in a 
boat and started down the Ohio river, his apprentice boys plv- 
ing their trade in the boat while he steered. 

In going up the Mississippi river against the current, the 
boys had to lay aside their aprons and pull at the oars. On 
reaching St. Louis he was unable to dispose of his merchandise, 
for a financial depression had swept over the country. Unwill- 
ing to sacrifice his property, he rented a couple of rooms, 
boarded himself and his boys and opened a harness store. 

It was an unfortunate venture ; business stagnation grew 
worse and worse. He stayed one year hoping in vain for better 
times and then sold out at a heavy loss. But it had been a year 
of excitement and intellectual activity for Lundy. Missouri 
was knocking at the door for admission to the Union ; and the 
great fight was on as to whether she should come in free or 
slave. Lundy spent every spare moment he had in exposing 
the evils of slavery in numerous original articles which he con- 
tributed to the newspapers of Missouri and Illinois. Saddened 
by defeat, and after a year's absence Lundy started for home, 
600 miles away, afoot in the winter time. 

For a year and a half Lundy had directed all his business 
affairs with the idea of becoming the editor of the Philanthro- 
pist and of making it the medium of his attack on slavery; 
but during his absence the newspaper had changed hands, and 
now the door is closed against him and he cannot speak his 
views freely through its columns even as a correspondent. 

Lundy rose to the occasion grandly. 

He decided to establish a periodical of his own and to do it 
at once, and he did. He wrote a prospectus and had it printed 
and circulated it. He obtained six subscribers ; and on the 
strength of this he prepared his material and in January, 1821. 
he issued No. i of Volume I. of The Genius of Universal Em- 

This is believed to have been the first newspaper in America, 
perhaps in the world, devoted exclusively or even mainly to 


abolitionism. It was a diminutive publication. It was 9^ 
inches long and 5^ inches wide, with two columns of printed 
matter on the page. 

Lundy had moved his family from St. Clairsville to JVlt. 
Pleasant, and here the first number of the Ceiiius was printed 
for him at the office of the Philanthropist; but the next seven 
numbers were printed for him at Steubenville, a town twenty 
miles away. Every month Lundy walked to that village for his 
papers and carried them home on his back. 

It was impossible for this condition of affairs to continue 
long. But the Genius of Universal Emancipation was to live. 
There came a change. Only eight numbers were published in 
Ohio ; the next numbers were to be published in Tennessee. 

An anti-slavery paper called the Emancipator had been 
established by Elihu Embree at Jonesborough in Eastern Ten- 
nessee. Embree died in a few months and his friends did not 
know how to dispose of the office and its equipments. 

Hearing of Lundy's struggle to found an anti-slavery paper, 
they wrote to him inviting him to come and see the establish- 
ment with a view to purchase. Lundy went to Jonesborough, 
a journey of eight hundred miles, and examined the printer's 

Here was an opportunity to secure for his young periodical 
a permanent home where under one roof he could write his 
editorials and do all his own work in composition and printing. 
He rented the establishment, brought his family to Jonesbor- 
ough and dwelt there nearly three years. 

Without ever having served an hour's apprenticeship, he 
took his place at the composing desk; heretofore he had been 
only editor and proprietor, now he becomes also typesetter and 
printer. Here thirty-five numbers of the Genius, 9 to 43, were 

It was impossible to treat effectively of the evils of the slave 
system in the midst of which he was living without stirring up 
at times considerable bad blood. On one occasion two slave- 
holders endeavored to force him to retrace certain statements 
he had made in the Genius. They invited him into a private 
room and then set upon him with clubs. He suffered but he 
would not yield and was finally released by outsiders who heard 
the disturbance. 

While in Tennessee he made one trip to Philadelphia, travel- 


ing- in all nearly 1,200 miles on horseback in the winter time, to 
attend the American Convention for the Abolition of Slavery. 
His was the only anti-slavery paper in the United States; and 
during this visit to the East, he decided to remove his paper 
to some city on the Atlantic seaboard, hoping thereby to extend 
the sphere of its influence. On returning to Tennessee he made 
arrangements at once to transfer the Genius to the city of Bal- 

Having disposed of his printing office in the summer of 1824, 
he bids farewell to his wife and children and starts afoot for 
Jjaltiniore. But he does not take the direct route. He visits 
kinsmen in southwestern Virginia and in North Carolina. 

This journey of Lundy's is memorable as witnessing the in- 
auguration of a new form of anti-slavery work; I refer to the 
system of public lectures. 

It was at the Deep River Meeting House in Guilford county, 
North Carolina, in the summer of 1824, that Benjamin Lundy 
gave the first public lecture ever delivered in America in favor 
of the abolition of slavery. The meeting house is near West- 
minster post office and about four miles north of Jamestown. 

1 quote from Lundy's reminiscences : 'T shall never forget 
the incidents of that meeting. It was held by the side of a fine 
spring in a beautiful shady grove near the Friends' Meeting 
House at Deep Creek, after the meeting for worship had closed. 
The audience signified their approbation by appointing another 
meeting for me to be held in the meeting house on a subsequent 
day. The second meeting having been publicly advertised 
was attended by many persons besides members of the Society 
of Friends, and before its adjournment an anti-slavery or abol- 
ition society was organized." 

Lundy was overjoyed at his success and devoted himsef to 
his new work with enthusiasm, seeking every possible oppor- 
tunity to obtain an audience. 

Was there a house to be raised? Benjamin always felt 
moved to attend that gathering, and those who assembled al- 
ways had an opportunity to hear his anti-slavery lecture. 
. Was there a muster of tht lOcal militia on training day? 
Benjamin was sure to appoint an abolition meeting for the 
same time and place ; and in one instance it so happened that 
the captain of the militia company was elected president of the 
newly-formed abolition society, with a Quaker as secretary. 


Among Lundy's converts on this journey was an intelligent 
and energetic young man by the name of William Swain, who 
conceived a strong friendship for Lundy, followed him to Bal- 
timore and learned the printer's trade in Lundy's office, work- 
ing for six months on the Genius. 

It was characteristic of Lundy's mission that so many of his 
converts did not merely say, " Yea, Lord," but took up the 
work themselves and became active propagandists. Swain 
afterwards returned to North Carolina and settled at Green- 
boro, where he published a newspaper called The Patriot, in 
which he openly and boldly wrote against slavery. 

Another of his converts was David Patterson, of Orange 
county, N. C, who owned eleven slaves and wished to emanci- 
pate them ; but the law did not allow slaves to be set free unless 
they were removed at once from the state. Lundy promised to 
make arrangements for transporting the slaves to the island of 

He held about twenty meetings in North Carolina and suc- 
ceeded in organizing a dozen abolition societies ; then he turned 
northward through Virginia, holding" meetings and establishing 
societies as he traveled until he reached the city of Baltimore. 

And here it may be well to remark that the discourses 
delivered by Lundy on these occasions were ultra-orthodox in 
anti-slavery sentiment. He argued openly and boldly for the 
emancipation of every slave, founding his appeals on the prin- 
ciples of Christian humanity and of civil liberty as based on 
eternal justice. 

During the next five years and a half Lundy delivered anti- 
slavery lectures before more than two hundred public meetings. 
To show the extent to which this lecture system was afterwards 
developed by the abolitionists, I may state that in 1836 the 
American Anti-Slavery Society maintained thirteen lecturing 
agents constantly in the field on salary. 

On reaching Baltimore Lundy lost no time in getting to 
work. He had no office and a very slender purse . Moreover, 
his reception even by the professed friends of emancipation in 
the city was very cool and distant. Vague expressions of hope 
for his success were the only encouragement he received. Evi- 
dently the idea of having the mouthpiece of abolitionism located 
at their very doors did not arouse much enthusiasm. 

Lundy secured employment by the day in a printing estab- 


iishment as type-setter, but all his spare moments he devoted to 
his own editorial work, ana when ins manuscript was ready he 
took It to his employer and hired him to print the tirst Balti- 
more number of the Genius, paying limi in his own coin. 

This was Genius So. 44, datea October, 1824; and in it 
Lundy comnienced a series of articles on emigration to Hayti, 
explaining its advantages and setting forth the terms ottered b\ 
uie hla\ tian government. 

fhese were followed by another series of articles on the do- 
mesuc slave-trade in which Lundy brought out witli consider- 
aoie detail the cruel features of tlie coast-wise trade in slaves. 
Baltimore was the headquarters for the purchase and collection 
of negroes and their shipment by boat to South Carolina and 

General LaFayette, while traveling through the United 
States, saw at Baltimore a copy of The Genius of Universal 
L mancipation and expressed a wish to see the editor. Lundy 
having been sent for, General LaFayette "encouraged him to 
go on and expressed his regret at finding so many slaves still in 
the country." 

We have seen that he had been instrumental in sending to 
Hayti the slaves of David Patterson. In March, 1825, he 
opened at Baltimore a Haytian Office of Emigration, and was 
active in assisting negroes to go to Hayti ; a work in which he 
was aided by Richard Allen, a negro Bishop of the Methodist 
Church. Among the shipments from Lundy's office was a 
colony of 88 slaves, valued at $30,000, who had been emancipa- 
ted by their owner, David Minge, of Charles City, \'a. 

Increased support enabled Lundy in October, 1825, to change 
the Genius from a monthly to a weekly. 

The relative advantages of Liberia and Hayti were being dis- 
cussed in the public press and Lundy was anxious to ascertain 
by personal observation the condition of affairs in Hayti and 
also to make definite arrangements with parties living there as 
ic the settlement of any negroes whom he might thereafter 
send. So he sailed for that island in the fall of 1825, and was 
gone five or six months. 

The Philanthropic Society of Ha\ti offered favorable induce- 
ments and agreed to advance money for the cost of passage- 
But each negro was to repay the Society b\' working on a plan- 
tation for a certain length of time after his arrival ; and after 


ihe expiration of this apprenticeship every negro man who had 
a family was to receive fifteen acres of land. 

On the day before Lundy sailed for home, a vessel arrived 
which brought him the sad tidings of his wife's death, leaving 
two infants less than a week old. 

"I returned,"" said Lundy, "to Baltimore with a heavy heart. 
On our arrival our vessel was ordered to perform quarantine, 
and the persons on board were forbidden to land until the next 

"I persuaded the captain, however, to go on shore with me at 
night that I might see m}- little orphan children. We rowed a 
small boat several miles to the shore. 1 hastened to my dwell- 
ing, but found it deserted. All was lone and dreary wdthin its 
walls. I roused some of my neighbors, but the)- could tell me 
nothing about my children. 

"I returned with the captain before daylight to the vessel and 
the next day obtained legal permission to land. On further in- 
quiry, I found that my little ones were scattered among ni}- 
friends. I collected my children together, placed them with 
friends in whom I could confide and renewed my vow to devote 
my energies to the cause of the slave until the nation should be 
effectually roused in his behalf. 

"I relinquished every prospect of the future enjoyment of an 
earthly home until that object should be accomplished." 

Lund}- resumed his work on the Genius, which was now a 
weekly. He published a second series of articles on Haytian 
emigration ; and in a few weeks he sent to the island under his 
arrangement with the Philanthropic Society, a colony of eman- 
cipated slaves, 1 16 in number. 

Those early abolitionists drew the moral line pretty straight 
when it came to questions of indirect complicity with the guilt 
of slave-holding. They refused to hire slaves from their 
masters ; they refused to give out contracts to those who would 
employ slave-labor in their performance of said contracts ; and 
some refused even to employ for wages those slaves who hired 
themselves from their masters for the purpose of accumulating 
a fund to buy their freedom. 

They refused, moreover, to purchase any article that had 
been produced by slave-labor, endeavoring thus to discounten- 
ance the use of the fruit of the unrequited toil of the slive. 
Some of their conclusions were, perhaps, too finely drawn ^o 


be appreciated by the general public; one good purpose, how- 
ever, was secured, — the abolitionist kept his own conscience 
pure and untouched by the hated sin ; and it gave him, too, an 
additional method of manifesting his personal hostility to the 
national iniquity. 

Lundy opened a free-produce store in Baltimore There were 
at this time only two others in the United States ; one at Phil- 
adelphia and one at Wilmington, Delaware In these stores 
every article offered for sale must be entirely the product of 
free labor. The coft'ee, the spices ,the tropical fruits, the rice, 
the sugar and molasses must all be undefiled by the touch of 
a slave. Cotton fabrics were the hardest to obtain ; but at last a 
Rhode Island manufacturer agreed to supply such articles and 
held himself ready to prove that his raw material had been 
raised entirely by free labor. 

There was in Baltimore a slave-trader by the name of Austin 
Woolfolk, notorious for the heartless brutality with which he 
carried on his wretched business. He sent a gang of twenty- 
nine slaves on a boat to Georgia. When at sea the slaves rose 
for their liberty, murdered the captain and mate, reached New 
York city and escaped, — all except one who was caught and 
hung. When led to the place of execution, the condemned 
negro, according to the custom of those days, was allowed to 
make some remarks expressing his penitence. Woolfolk, who 
was present, interrupted the unfortunate man with oaths and 
abusive language and would not desist until compelled to do so 
by the indignant spectators. An account of this disgusting 
spectacle was published in the New York Christian Inquirer; 
and reprinted by Lundy in the Genius. 

Soon after this, Woolfolk met Lundy near the post-office in 
Baltimore, caught him by the throat, threw him upon the pave- 
ment, choked him until he was nearly unconscious, and then 
stamped on his head and face with the heel of his boot. Wool- 
folk was arrested and tried for assault and battery. The jury 
found Woolfolk guilty ; and the judge, in whose discretion the 
penalty was, sentenced him to pay a fine of one dollar. The 
judge said from the bench that Lundy got nothing more than 
he- deserved, and he took the copy of the Genius containing the 
objectionable article and sent it to the grand jury charging 
■them to indict Lundy for libel, which they refused to do. 

On May i, 1828, Lundy started from Baltimore on a trip 


through the Middle and New England States. His object was 
to secure subscribers for the Genius and to arouse a more gen- 
eral interest in the cause of emancipation by a series of public 
lectures. The journey was performed almost entirely on foot, 
with the exception of a short sea-voyage. I will first indicate 
his line of travel and then describe some of the incidents of 
the tour. 

He passed through Philadelphia, through JJurlington and 
Rancocas, N. J. ; Westchester and New Rochelle, N. Y. ; 
Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, Brooklyn and Norwich, 
Conn. ; Newport and Providence, R. 1. ; New Bedford and 
Nantucket, Mass., whence he sailed for Portland, Me. Turning- 
southward he passed through Portsmouth, N. H., and New- 
buryport, Andover, Salem, and Lynn to Boston. He visited 
Charleston and Brighton. He passed westward through Wor- 
cester, Leicester, Springfield and Northampton in Mass. From 
Albany he crossed New York State by way of Lockport to 
Niagara Falls and returned through Utica to Albany and 
Poughkeepsie, and then south to Baltimore. 

He reached home on October 25, having been absent six 
months lacking six days, and having held forty-three public 
meetings, generally in town halls, court houses, college build- 
ings or churches. 

At Philadelphia he found a Free Produce Store, but it had 
only a few customers ; so he called a public meeting to encour- 
age the use of free-labor products, the first meeting of this kind 
ever held in the United States. 

I will quote a few passages from his journal. 

"June II. I had a good-sized meeting at Norwich, Conn., 
but it was only attended by men. The people here are all too 
politic and will do nothing for our cause." 

"June 16. Attended Friends' Yearly Meeting at Newport, 
R. L. and on the 20th held at that place my twelfth anti-slavery 
lecture. It was attended by few, and they were all men. Sec- 
tarianism nearly closed up my way here, I being but a moder- 
ate Quaker." , 

"Aug. I. I am making arrangements for a meeting in Bos- 
ton, which are embarrassed by there being too many other 
meetings, as negroes are. everywhere and always, the last to 
be thought of or noticed." 

"Aug. 20. Saw this morning a cotton factor)- at New Ro- 


chelle, near which were fifteen or twenty boys from eight to 
fourteen years of age, all at play, hopping and jumping. The}' 
went to work at the ringing of the factory bell. This is the way 
the Yankees get rich : — no idlers out of the cradle." 

"Aug. 22. I walked from Leicester to Springfield, a dis- 
tance of 45 miles, being the greatest walk I have accomplished 
in a single day." 

"(Jn the 25th I arrived at Northampton, after 9 o'clock in the 
evening, and called at three taverns before I could get lodgings 
or polite treatment." 

"Sept. 6. At Albany I made some acquaintances. Philan- 
thropists are the slowest creatures breathing. They think 
forty times before they act." 

I have reserved one incident of his visit to Boston on this 
trip to relate more at large. On reaching Boston Lundy had 
made diligent inquiry for abolitionists, desiring to fellowship 
with them and to plan with them for active work ; but, strange 
as it may seem, he did not find a single abolitionist in the 
metropolis of New England. He had to begin his work single- 
handed and alone. 

1 cannot forego rementioning the fact that Lundy, whose 
footsteps we are now following as he blazes a path for freedom 
over the Puritan hills, was a native and a citizen of the Middle 

He went to Boston as the setter forth of a new doctrine ; and, 
like Paul at Athens, he began his disputation with devout per- 
sons. He invited the ministers of the various denominations 
to a conference in the parlor of his boarding-house. Eight 
appeared, and he gave them an informal talk. Some of the 
boarders being in the room were involuntary listeners. Among 
them was William Lloyd Garrison. Lundy was the editor of 
the Genius of Universal Emancipation, the first abolition jour- 
nal in the world ; Garrison was the editor of the National Phil- 
anthropist, the first total abstinence newspaper in the world. 

It was not at all picturesque, this accidental meeting in a 
second-class boarding-house of Lundy and Garrison, the deaf 
Quaker and the near-sighted Baptist ; but it had in it elements 
of a deeper and more permanent influence for the uplifting of 
mankind than many a historical scene that has been pencilled 
into fame by the skill of artists. 

In Garrison's heart Lundy's words fell as seed in good 


soil. Toward the close of this private conference when the 
subject of emancipation was open for g-eneral discussion, Gar- 
rison came across the room and took part in the conversation, 
expressing openly his approbation of Lnndy's doctrine. Gar- 
rison was aroused : and. as he pondered on the matter, there 
dawned on his mind the justice, "-reatness and holiness of this 
new reform. 

Garrison was Lundy's convert. 

He had at this first meeting cheered Lundy's heart bv his 
words ; he soon placed himself on record by contributing an 
article on the subject to one of the daily papers. Little need to 
speak of Garrison and his Liberator. The history of abolition- 
ism shows us two firebrands ; one was Garrison, the other was 
John Brown. 

"In the course of a few days afterwards," says Lundy, "we 
had a public meeting, which was attended by most of the eight 
clergymen, together with a large audience. After I had finish- 
ed my lecture several clergymen addressed the meeting. They 
concurred in my views, except one of them who said something 
a little like opposition. I forthwith challenged him to a public 
debate on the spot, which he declined." 

Lundy hurried home by way of Niagara Falls to attend the 
meetings of the American Convention for the Abolition of 
Slavery. Its sessions covered a period of four days, November 
3-6, 1828. 

November 10, 1828. Lundy has been at home two weeks 
and two days. 

November 11. He is off on his travels again, this time for 
Vermont, his second trip to New England. He starts early and 

I have here the original memoranda of Benjamin Lundy's 
journey tp Bennington, Vermont ; it is in the rough, being 
written on coarse yellow paper ; but about old documents there 
is always a certain flavor that T like. 

It is evident that some person had sketched on this paper a 
map of the country west of Baltimore through which 
Lundy intended to pass, indicating the dwelling-houses, vil- 
lages, streams and roads ; and below the map this friend had 
given some directions. 

Here vou see the map itself and the directions written below 





(Reproduced from Jifiijamin I.undys memoranda of his jour- 
ney to Bennington, \'t.. November, 1828.) 

"When you get to New Market, you had better enquire the 
shortest road to Smith's, & also if it is the same Smith you 
want to see. When you get to Backey town, enquire of Geo. 
Hopelbock who keeps store there — the firm \ beHeve is Hopel- 
bock & Cunningham — if }ou mention my name to them thev 
will give you every assistance and direction in their power. 

"On your way to Pipe Creek you will pass through Frederick 
to Liberty where you will call on Alex. Lindley and perhaps 
}OU had better have a meeting there. The Hains's at Pipe 
Creek will put you in a way to get to Gunpowder."

handwriting the following memoranda of his journey from 
Baltimore, Maryland, to Bennington, Vermont, in November

Lundy found Garrison at Bennington and invited him to 
come to Baltimore and join him in editing the Goiiiis. But 
Garrison was at that time publishing a newspaper of his own 
and could not come : so that Lundy's trip was a fruitless one 
for the time being, so far as his main object was concerned. 

In the spring of 1829 Lundy found it necessary to visit Hayti 
again. It was now over three years since he had been there 
and many changes had taken place on the island. He took 
with him a small colony of emancipated slaves and obtained 
for them, on easy terms for a period of nine years, leases of 
rich land already cleared. On his return he announced that he 
had completed arrangements whereby any negroes who might 
wish to get to Hayti could obtain leases of plantations with 
buildings on them for seven years, the first two years free of 
charge and the remaining five at a moderate rent. 

In the Geiu'its for September. 1829, Lundy announces that 
Garrison had come to Baltimore and was now his associate in 
the editorshij). The paper assumed at once a strong political 
cast, opposing Jackson and favoring Clay ; Lundy felt that 
way, but the expression of such views in the Genius was large- 
ly the work of Garrison. There was a falling away of sub- 
scribers ; the reason for this was that the question of emanci- 
])ation was beginning to get mixed up with sectarianism and 
politics. "We are resolved," wrote Lundy in the Genius, "to 
have nothing to do with sectarian or party disputation, in our 
public proceeding, unless the question of slavery should appear 
to be involved in it ; yet we are grieved to see . in numerous 
instances, old and faithful labourers in that sacred cause, aban- 
doning it. simply because others are actively engaged in pro- 
moting it. with whom they difiFer in some religious or political 

"Now this is a deplorable state of things. It is like a civil 
war in a military camp, when a dangerous enemy is forcing 
the gates. It is like a family quarrel in which the inmates of 
a house are engaged, while it is burning over their heads." 

A vessel owned by Mr. Todd, of Newburyport, Mass.. came 
to Baltimore and took on a cargo of slaves to be sold in New 
Orleans. Garrison denounced this transaction, branded it as 


an act of domestic piracy, and declared that he would cover all 
the perpetrators with thick infamy. Garrison was arrested for 
lihel, tried and convicted, fined fifty dollars and costs, and 
thrown in prison. Lundy, who had been absent on a lecture 
tour, returned to Baltimore and then hurried to New York 
City to obtain money to release Garrison ; but on returning to 
Baltimore, Lundy himself as co-editor, was arrested and im- 
prisoned for a few days. 

The partnership between Lundy and Garrison was dissolved 
on March 5, 1830, having lasted just six months. 

In resuming entire control of the paper, Lundy announced 
that the Genius "will hereafter treat exclusively upon the sub- 
ject of emancipation." 

Reformers have their dark hours : and Lundy's were very 
many and very dark. The income from subscriptions was sn 
pitifully small that he was compelled to reduce the Genius to a 
monthly. Lundy himself was driven from Baltimore by the 
malignant spirit of tyranny. He removed the Genius to Wash- 
ington, and made that city the nominal office of publication. 

There was a greater necessity than ever for Lundy to travel 
and collect dues and secure new subscribers ; so he would en- 
gage the services of some friend of the cause to manage the 
Genius during the time he expected to b,e absent. After his 
departure two or three numbers of the paper would appear and 
then the temporary editor would suspend publication for lack 
of funds. Learning of this. Lundy would himself prepar^^ 
manuscript on the road, and have the next number printed at 
whatever town he happened to be. He never had any trouble 
to secure the use of a local printing press, it generally stand- 
ing idle several days a week; as to type it was dififerent. so he 
found it best to carry with him a quantity of his own. 

There were two circumstances that threw additional difficul- 
ties in Lundy's way: the establishment of the Liberator in 
Massachusetts and Nat Turner's insurrection in Virginia. 

Garrison started an abolition paper of his own at Boston of 
a very radical type, called the Liberator. Lundy welcomed the 
LJberafor kindly; but nevertheless it was a financial rival. 

On the first Sunday of August. 1831. an insurrection of 
slaves broke out in Southampton county. Virginia. Nat Tur- 
ner a negro preacher and slave, murdered his master, and then 
with fifty followers rushed on from plantation to plantation 


killing men, women and children, sixty-three victims in all ; but 
they were soon overtaken and captured, and most of them put 
to death. 

This outbreak was fatal to the abolition: societies of the 
South ; they collapsed like bubbles ; and this in turn was a hard 
blow to the Genius, many of whose subscribers resided in that 

I will read a note of comfort received by Lundy during this 
trying period from Whittier, the poet of abolitionism. 
Dear Friend : 

By favor of our mutual friend, J. Well, I drop thee a line 
to let thee know I have not forgotten thee and that it was with 
no small degree of pleasure that I rec'd the last number of The 

At this time when some of our early friends are turning aside 
after other objects, I rejoice to know that the "pioneer editor" 
of abolitionism is still resolved to keep his eye single to the 
great object — the emancipation of the slave. Our Yearly 
Meeting is just over — the subject of slavery had a weighty and 
deep consideration. 

It was said to be like one of our Yearly Meetings when Jacob 
Lindley and Warner Mifflin were moved to speak out for the 
bondman. Farewell. May God bless and preserve thee. 
Ever and truly thy friend, 

Jno. G. Whittier. 

January, 1832. Lundy is off on his travels again, this time 
to Canada. Now why to Canada? 

The black population of Canada consisted of a few slaves im- 
ported directly from Africa ; of some runaway slaves from the 
Southern States ; and of many free negroes from the Northern 
States, who had left their homes through fear of being kid- 
napped and sold South, or who had fled panic-stricken at the 
enactment of laws requiring them to file freedom-papers, which 
they did not possess. 

As early as 1803. Ohio had passed a law forbidding negroes 
to settle in the State unless they filed in a public oflfice their cer- 
tificate of freedom ; this was known as the "black law." In 
1828 this old law was dug up. and the attempt to enforce it 
caused a sudden exodus of several thousand negroes to Canada. 

The negroes of Canada did not live scattered here and there 
all over the country ; but they had gathered themselves into col- 


onies. Thev would locate in a forest along: some lonelv wood- 
road and put uji cabins and form a community by tbemselves. 
Some of tliese communities included five or six hundred indi- 

What was the condition of these settlements? and what ad- 
vantages did Canada offer as an asylum for emancipated 
slaves ? Lundy wished to base his opinion on facts gathered 
from personal observation ; and so he made a journey through 
Canada in January, 1832. He visited the Wilberforce colony 
consisting of about thirty families on the Au-Sable river, twelve 
miles west of London ; it was a new settlement and had been 
the rendezvous of 2,000 refugees who had soon passed on seek- 
ing homes in other parts. The permanent settlers were sober, 
industrious and thrifty, and maintained two churches and two 

He considered Canada an excellent place for the settlement 
of negroes who had lived north of the 34th parallel ; but the soil 
and climate were not suited to the cultivation of cane, rice and 
cotton, — the great crops raised by negro labor. 

One afternoon while he was traveling on foot through a thin- 
h populated section of Canada, he came to a stream with a 
strong deep current, the footlog over which was partly dis- 
lodged. He walked part way across on the log and then step- 
ped to the trunk of a fallen tree ; but the tree turned and threw 
him into the water. He nearly perished ; he climbed out and 
walked on, but soon sank down exhausted and became so cold 
that he had to crawl a long distance on his hands and knees 
through the snow to the next hut. 

Almost all the anti-slavery men admitted .sorrowfully thai 
slavery was profitable to the master. TAindy held to the con- 
trary; he believed that slavery was unprofitable, that it was a 
poor policy financially for a community. He believed that the 
planters of the South would clear more money every year if 
they would set their slaves free and hire them as free laborers. 
Talking with the planters, he asked them. How much net 
profit do you get off of a field-slave in a year ? and they said. 
Each slave clears us about $100 a year. T.undy said. Emanci- 
pate them and you will clear more ; and their reply was. You 
prove that and we will emancipate them. 

Many said, also, that the negroes were incapable of existing 
as a law-abiding body of f'ee laborers. This was asserted so 


emphatically and repeated so often that it became a great 
obstacle in the way of emancipation. Lundy believed that the 
one thing needful for the further advancement of the aboH- 
tion cause was a demonstration to the world that the negro 
was capable of self-government and could prosper as a free 

Remember that Lund\ never dreamed of an emancipation 
backed by the sword ; he was opposed to violence and war ; his 
appeal was solely to* the reason and the conscience. His hope 
was to win the masters themselves. Therefore he proposed to 
establish a colony of negroes beyond the borders of the United 
States, with the ultimate object of thus securing emancipation 
on the soil of all the slaves who remained at home in the United 
States. His was not a money-making scheme ; his was an ar- 
gument-making scheme. Lundy's idea was unique. 

Colonies had been planted in Africa for the good of Africa ; 
and colonies had been planted in other places for the purpose of 
getting all the free negroes out of the United States. Why not 
plant a colony for the purpose of universal emancipation ? 

Lundy was a man of action ; he was not content to sit in the 
editorial chair and preach this idea to others ; he began to carry 
the plan into effect himself ; he would prove by experiment that 
the American negro could prosper as a free laborer. 

Inspired by this noble and far-reaching hope, and knowing 
that the strength of slavery was in the cultivation of cotton, 
rice and sugar, Lundy made three journeys to Mexico, suflFer- 
ing great hardships and encountering many dangers in his 
efforts to obtain from the Mexican authorities permission to 
plant his colony in that semi-tropical land. 

Texas was rapidly becoming the storm center of political 
passions ; it was swarming with land speculators, and under- 
neath all the turmoil was the burning slave question. One 
President of Mexico had issued a proclamation freeing all 
slaves at once, but that President was arrested and put to 
death ; another President had modified the proclamation and 
restored slavery in Texas. Many of the new settlers in Texas 
had come from the United States and were rank slavery men 
at heart, especially Austin's colony. The aggressiveness of 
this faction boded ill for Mexico. 

Going to New Orleans and thence ascending the Red River 
Lundy struck across the wilderness, afoot and alone, carrying 


a knapsack. After a journey of one hundred and sixty miles, 
he reached Nacogdoches on July i, 1832. He immediately 
drew up a petition addressed to the proper state officers asking 
for a tract of land whereon he might plant a colony. He left 
this petition in the hands of true men to be forwarded to Mon- 
clova, the capital of the State of Coahuila. Leaving Nacog- 
doches on July 7, he descended the Red River; ascending the 
Mississippi, he returned to Philadelphia. Lundy remained at 
home about five months. 

In April, 1833, he started on his second trip to Mexico; on 
May 5th he had reached Cincinnati. While floating down the 
Ohio and the Mississippi on a freight boat, he studied the 
Spanish language and argued with his fellow passengers con- 
cerning the rights of man. When the boat stopped at a wharf 
a few hours to take on freight, he enquired after prospective 
colonists ; when the boat stopped at a town over night, he held 
a public meeting. 

Having taken passage from New Orleans in the schooner 
Wild-Cat, he disembarked in Texas at the mouth of the Brazos 
River, traveled up that stream for several days, and then struck 
overland for Monclova on the Rio Grande three hundred miles 
to the westward, 

"I prepared," says he, "to camp out by providing myself 
with a pocket pistol and ammunition. I set out before daylight. 
The grass was so dewy that I had occasion to stop three times 
before breakfast to pour the water from my shoes and wring out 
my stockings. When night came, on I lay down in the grass 
by the roadside, my knapsack serving for a pillow and my 
small thin cloak for sheets and counterpane, while my hat, my 
staff and my pistol lay at arm's length from my person." 

We see him at one time camping with a band of Indians; 
and at another wandering alone through an arid region and 
almost perishing for lack of water to drink. The cholera is 
raging ; and some of the larger towns through which he passed 
had lost one-tenth of their inhabitants by the scourge. He him- 
self is stricken down several times by symptoms of the dread 
disease. His money gives out and he is compelled to sell his 
watch and some of his clothing. 

On entering a village he rents a room and supports himself 
by repairing shoes and harness, and by making suspenders and 
other articles from panther and deer skins. An entry in his 


journal says: "I have sold to-day a shot-bag and a pair of sus- 
penders for $1 each. Thus I am quite in funds again," 

Reaching Monclova, the capital of Coahuila, he calls on 
the Secretary of State and explains his plan. He draws up a 
petition, has it translated into Spanish, and visits the Governor. 
He is looked upon at first as a Texas schemer, one of Austin's 

He is now confronted by a legal difficulty. The Mexican 
Congress had recently passed a law prohibiting persons from 
the United States from holding land in the Mexican Republic. 
One ray of hope appears ; the news comes that one branch of 
the Mexican Congress had passed a bill to repeal that law of 
1830. Lundy waits and becomes acquainted with some land 
speculators. They wish him to bear witness to their good 
standing morally, socially and financially. But Lundy was 
cautious. Then they endeavored to persuade him to employ 
them as agents in securing his grant of land. But Lundy did 
not fall into that scheme. Then they turned on him openly; 
they declared that he was not the person that he represented 
himself to be ; that he was not the prominent anti-slavery editor 
but an out and out impostor. Slowly it dawned on Lundy's 
mind that land speculators, at least the Texan variety, were an 
interesting class of rascals. 

He waited a month, and on December 8th official news is 
received that the Mexican Congress has repealed the law of 
1830, the appeal to take effect six months hence. The Gov- 
ernor says he can not act now, not until the six months have 
expired. However, he pledges his word that Lundy shall have 
the first grant when the time limit is up. Lundy finds it neces- 
sary to return to the United States ; and in order to make as- 
surance doubly sure, he concludes an agreement with a friend 
of his to take out two grants of land for him ; his friend being 
a British subject and hence not within the statute. 

He started for home on January 23, 1834, and going to 
?vIatamoras took a boat for New Orleans. Several passengers 
died of cholera. The only ship they met flying the Stars and 
Stripes was one carrying a cargo of slaves. 

On reaching Cincinnati the students of Lane Seminary, an 
institution at which the conflict between colonization and eman- 
cipation was especially bitter, arranged a meeting for him at 
which he explained the radical differences between his plan of 

the: philanthropist. 375 

negro settlement and the aims and operations of the Coloniza- 
tion Society. 

He had been absent just one year on his trip to Mexico. The 
sole purpose of his flying visit home at this time was to secure 
funds to be used in obtaining his grant of land, but in this he 
was only partially successful. 

At the end of three weeks, with scant and inadequate re- 
sources, he set out on his third and last trip to Mexico. The 
yellow fever was raging in the southwest but he never hesita- 
ted. He went up the Red River and then crossed Texas, travel- 
ing at first on foot but afterwards securing an Indian pony. 
On reaching Monclova he was informed that the State Legis- 
lature of Coahuila had passed a law against the citizens of the 
United States, estopping them from buying land within her 
boundaries, including her territory of Texas. This ended all 
hope of obtaining a grant in those places. 

Lundy determined, therefore, to apply to the neighboring- 
state of Tamaulipas. Having been assured by Colonel Almonte 
that land could be obtained without going to Victoria, the cap- 
ital, he journeyed four hundred miles eastward to the seacoast 
and arrived at Matamoras penniless, where he rented a house, 
opened a saddler's shop and remained three months waiting in 
vain for the Governor of Tamaulipas to visit the city. Finding 
that he must go to the capital, he work^ every day and almost 
every night, borrows thirty-five dollars, mounts his pony and 
starts for Victoria, 250 miles to the southwest. 

Here, after a number of vexatious delays, he obtained from 
the governor the long-sought-for grant of land. It was for 
138,000 acres. He agreed to introduce 250 settlers and their 
families, but he could not select the land and have it surveyed 
until he brought some of his settlers; so he hurried home, 
traveling by boat and reaching Nashville on May 4, 1835, 
having been absent one year on this his third and last trip tc 

He prepared handbills setting forth the advantages of 
Lundy's Grant in Tamaulipas, printed a private letter to his 
friends, and published in the Western Methodist an address on 
his Mexican Plan. 

The first name entered on his list of colonists was that of 
R. P. Graham, of Nashville, a man possessing property worth 
ten thousand dollars. Andrew Donelson, a brother-in-law of 


President Jackson, died and left twenty-one slaves to be freed, 
but the court decided that the will could not be held valid as 
to the emancipation of slaves unless they were removed from 
the United States ; so Lundy, at the request of the slaves and 
with the consent of Stokely Donelson, the executor, applied to 
the court to be allowed to take them to his colony. A southern 
philanthropist was preparing to liberate 100 slaves and a large 
number of these had expressed a wish to go with Lundy to 
Alexico. These serve to illustrate the character of the colonists, 

Lundy issued a pamphlet of 16 pages, the title page readint; 
a.*- follows : "A circular addressed to Agriculturists, Manufac- 
turers, Mechanics, &c., on the subject of Mexican Colonization, 
with a General Statement respecting Lundy's Grant in the State 
of Tamaulipas, accompanied by a Geographical Description, 
&c., of that interesting portion of the Mexican Republic." 

He appointed Philadelphia as the place and February, 1836, 
as the time for the sailing of the first expedition. 

But a crisis was rapidly approaching in Mexican alifairs. In- 
surrection developed into revolution, and the government of 
Texas, founded on slavery and christened a republic, received 
a baptism of blood. 

Amid the clash of arms, Lundy's expedition was postponed 
and finally entirely abandoned to the intense disappointment of 
its originator. 

Lundy was now one of the best informed men in the country 
as to the true condition of affairs in Texas and Mexico. He 
furnished John Quincy Adams, both by letters and by personal 
interviews, with much valuable material used by Adams in his 
public debates in the House of Representatives. 

He brought out in 1835 a pamphlet of 32 pages, entitled "The 
Origin and True Cause of the Texan Insurrection." In May, 
1836, he printed another pamphlet of 56 pages, entitled "The 
War in Texas, a review of facts and circumstances showing 
that this contest is the Result of a long-premeditated crusade 
against the government set on foot by slaveholders, land-specu- 
lators, &c., with a view of reestablishing, extending and per- 
petuating the system of slavery and the slave-trade in the Re- 
public of Mexico. By a Citizen of the L'nited States." 

In this pamphlet is found that remarkable passage predicting 
the Southern Confederacy, and expressed by Lundy in these 
words : "Our countrymen, in fighting for the union of Texas 


with the United States, will be lighting- for that which at no 
distant period will inevitably dissolve the Union. The slave 
states, having the eligible addition to their land of bondage, 
will ere long cut asunder the federal tie, and confederate a new 
and distinct slaveholding republic in opposition to the whole 
free republic of the north. Thus early will be fulfilled the pre- 
diction of the old politicians of Europe that our Union could 
not remain one century entire; and then also will the maxim 
be exemplified in our history that liberty and slavery can not 
long inhabit the same soil." 

During the winter of 1835-6, Lundy contributed a scries oi 
articles on Texas and Mexico to the columns of the National 
Gazette of Philadelphia. On August 3, 1836, he commenced 
a new anti-slavery paper at Philadelphia ; it was a weekly called 
the National Enquirer. He also published the Genius every 
month. He issued both papers as sole proprietor regularly until 
the third week in Alarch, 1837, on which date he entered into an 
agreement with the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society whereby 
the Society assumed the financial responsibility for the ptiblica- 
lion of the Enquirer, which was to become the ofificial organ of 
the Society, Lundy retaining the editorship. This arrangement 
continued until March 9, 1838, just one year. 

Then an entire change of programme was made. The Penn- 
sylvania Anti-Slavery Society took the Enquirer, changed it.s 
name to the Pennsylvania Freeman, and secured the services of 
John Greenleaf Whittier as editor. 

Thus relieved of editorial responsibility, Lundy planned to 
begin life anew ; he would go west, buy a home and gather his 
children around him, equip an office and resume the publication 
of the Genius. Such were his plans, but he did not start west at 
once. He lingered, desiring to attend a series of abolition meet- 
ings which were to be held in Philadelphia the middle of May. 

One of the difficulties encountered by the anti-slavery re- 
formers was the impossibility of renting public halls in which 
X.C hold their meetings. To remedy this, the abolitionists of 
Pennsylvania had decided to buy a lot in Philadelphia and erect 
on it a building dedicated to Freedom and the Rights of Man. 
They raised $30,000 ; and their edifice, named Pennsylvania 
Hall, was opened for meetings on May 14, 1838. The Anti- 
Slavery Convention of American Women, an organization 


which Lundy had been very active in promoting, held there its 
annual meeting. Public meetings were held for three days. 

This gathering of abolition agitators caused great excitement 
in the city. (Jn the evening of the 17th, John Swift, the mayor 
of Philadelphia, went to the managers of the hall and requested 
them not to hold an)- evening session lest they should endanger 
the safety of the building. To this they agreed; and to him 
they surrendered the keys. The mayor made a speech to the 
mob which had gathered on the street in front of the hall, ad- 
vising them to go home and go to bed as he intended to do. 

But the mob remained and becoming bolder soon burst open 
the doors and set fire to the hall, the police making little, if any, 
resistance. When the firemen arrived the mob would not allow 
them to save the hall but compelled them by threats to confine 
their efforts to protecting the surrounding property. 

In the anti-slavery office in this hall Lundy had collected all 
the property which he intended to take west with him, includ- 
ing most of his private journals and complete sets of the 

Everything was burned. 

The next morning Lundy wrote to a friend and announced 
his loss, closing his letter in these words : "My papers, books, 
clothes — everything of value (except my journal in Mexico, 
etc.) are all, all gone — a total sacrifice on the altar of Universal 
Emancipation. They have not yet got my conscience, they have 
not yet taken ni}- heart, and until they rob me of these, they can 
not prevent me from pleading the cause of the suffering slave. 
1 am not disheartened, though everything of earthly value (in 
the shape of property) is lost. We shall assuredly triumph 

These words vibrate with the unconquerable spirit of the man 
and of his cause. Gazing on the blackened and smoking walls 
of Pennsylvania Hall, impoverished, homeless, and with the 
wild jeering of the mob yet ringing in his ears, he breaks forth 
into an exclamation of victory, — "We shall assuredly triumph 

The prophecy came true, the Cause did triumph ; but for 
Benjamin himself the close of life was not far off. 

As a reformer he was firm and uncompromising; he stood 
during his whole career as stiff as a steel-beam for the freedom 
of every human being everywhere. But at the same time he 


was conciliatory, and appealed calmly 10 reason ; and the 
end he aimed at was an emancipation brought about without 
the use of fire and sword ; his temper and methods were in the 
main acceptable to many southern people. It will always re- 
main a matter of speculation whether or not slavery could have 
been abolished without civil war ; but ihib much is certain, — it 
never could have been so done except under the leadership of 
men gifted with Lundy's patience and common sense. 

In September, 1838, Lundy went to Hennepin, Illinois, and 
tried to resume there the publication of the Genius; but he 
encountered much difficulty in securing type and paper. Dur- 
mg the delay he was induced to locate at Lowell, a town site 
that had recently been laid out but which had not yet secured 
the convenience of a post ofiice. There in the winter of 1838-9 
he built a house and a printing office. In the spring he bought 
as a home for his unmarried children a small farm four miles 
away. At last Benjamin's life had fallen in pleasant places; he 
had his children around him ; he had an office ; and the Genius 
of Universal Emancipation began once more to go abroad. 

In August he was taken with a slight fever which was then 
epidemic in that section. While working in his printing office 
on the afternoon of the 21st, he was seized with severe pains so 
that he could not go to his home but spent the night at tlic house 
of his friend William Seely. He grew worse and suffered 
much pain all the next day. At ten o'clock on the evening of 
August 22, 1839, the pain ceased and he became easy; it was 
the sign of approaching death, and one hour later he breathed 
his last. 

Such was the life of Benjamin Lund) , the Founder of Amer- 
ican Abolitionism. 

Such were the toils and struggles of this tireless and effective 
worker in the cause of human freedom, a heroic spirit inspired 
to lead the way in changing the thoughts and feelings and 
morals of a mighty nation. 

As God naturally wrought out his decree for the abolition of 
slavery in America, he called forth Lundy and Lincoln— the 
saddler to begin, and the rail-splitter to complete, that great 
and glorious work. 




While preparing my paper on Benjamin Lundy in 1897, I 
wrote to Susan M. Wierman, eldest daughter of Benjamin 
Lundy, soliciting the loan of copies of the Genius and of any 
original letters or other documents which she might have, in 
order that I might exhibit the same at the meeting of the His- 
torical Club. She very kindly complied with my request, and 
in her letter said : 

"Nearly all of father's papers were destroyed by fire in Penn- 
sylvania Hall in 1838. 

"Zebina Eastman, of Chicago, commenced to collect material 
for a book and we sent him all the material we had which was 
not much ; but he died suddenly — before he had much done, I 
presume — and none of the material has been returned. Zebina 
was with father in Lowell at the time of his death, and had 
been with him for some weeks ; was an ardent friend of his and 
of the Cause. 

"I have not one whole number of the Genius, and the scraps 
1 have contain little but what has been used ; I furnished Pro- 
fessor Williams with all the material in my possession and he 
used it quite largely in his article. However, I send thee such

Letter written by David Lee Child and addressed to Ben- 
jamin Lundy, Moorestovvn, Burlington county, N. J. 

Mr. Child graduated from Harvard in the class of 1817; he 
was a lawyer, and edited the Massachusetts Weekly Journal, 
published at Boston. 

New York, Mch. 28, 1830. 
Dear Friend,' — 

Yours of the 17th Inst, was duly received. T am glad you 
have determined as you there state. I go to Boston and thence 
to my father's at West Boylestown, County of Worcester and 
State of Massachusetts where any communication will reach 
me. Let me know all you learn about the progress or retro- 
gression of "the blackhearted ingrates." Is it not curious that 
even now, after dipping their felon hands up to the elbows in 
blood, they are not grateful to Santa Anna for not driving them 
out of Southern heathendom or into the Gulf of Mexico. God's 
will be done tho it is a sore trial to any observer to wait so long 
for their destruction. Accounts in the newspapers are so con- 
tradictory that I put no confidence in them. Whenever you 
get correct information, let me have the pleasure of it for I shall 
be in the country where I shall not be superabundantly su])plied 
with news. 

We left Joseph Carpenter and his family all well. That is 
one of the best men I ever saw. 

He was pleased to be remembered by you. He is one of your 
old friends, and if you could be able to visit him. you would 
give and receive great pleasure. We have been fortunate to 
form the acquaintance and I hope acquire the friendship of two 
such persons as he and his sweet and blessed daughter Esther. 
They have the Turpie children to bring up. These children 
will be rendered, I hope, very important to the cause of truth. 
My wife desires remembrance to you. 

Yr Sincere friend, 
Mr. Benjamin Lundy. D- L. Ciiii.n. 


Letter written by Benjamin Lundy and addressed to Lydia 
S. Wierman, care Joel Wierman. York Springs, Pennsylvania. 
Lydia. Benjamin's sister, had recently married ; she conducted 


a Boarding-School for Girls at York Sulphur Springs in 
Adams county, one hundred miles west of Philadelphia. 

Philad-a. 5th mo. 29, 1831. 
Dear Sister, — 

I expected to receive a letter from thee, before now. I 
will, however, excuse thee for thy neglect; for, judging from 
the past, I fear I shall often stand in need of similar favors. 

Well, I have engaged our friend, Amos Gilbert, to assist in 
the editorial management of the Genius, while I perform my 
great tour ; and he is now in Washington, and I am on my jour- 
ney. But, as I shall take such a zig-zag, round-about course, I 
expect to be in Washington again before I get far away from 
home. I have it in prospect to visit some parts of the State of 
Delaware, New Jersey, and Maryland, immmediately. After 
leaving Washington again, (probably in 4 or 5 months from 
this date) I shall shape my course pretty directly to your part of 
the country. I shall not go far away until I see what kind of a 
home my dear sister has. I have just been to see sister Phebe. 
'■^he has a fine daughter, and has named it "Lydia S." 

T am in hopes William has provided a snug home for his 
family. Father, mother, Deborah and Mary are now to the 
eastward. T liave not seen any of the family, at home, since 
thee left them ; but I expect to visit them in a week or two. 
Several of them attended the Y. Meeting, as I did also myself. 
I then saw thy letter to H. Townsend ; (and when at brother 
Wm's, Phebe show^ed me the one thee sent her) ; from which I 
gather that thee did not fancy our slave system in the South! 
Thee told some prett}- tough stories about us ! 

Well, dear sister, I do not kn()\v but that I will let .Susan go 
and live with thee a few months, this summer and fall, if it 
will still be agreeable to both Joel and thyself. The woman, 
that she first went to, has quit the business on account of ill- 
health ; and she has since been a short time with another. But 
the latter demands terms that I am not disposed to comply with. 
Some inquir}' has been made for a situation here ; and she can 
be accommodated in the fall. I have talked with Sarah Mar- 
shall of Philadelphia ; she \vill take Susan in the fall : and 1 
think it would be a good place. Should no other opportunity- 
offer, she may pay thee a visit, if thee can give her some em- 
ploymcn. She must not (go where she may) contract habits 


of idleness. Please write me at Washington as soon as this 
comes to hand, and inform me whether thee is still willing to 
have her with thee a few months. If thy letter reaches Wash- 
ington before my return, it will be opened by A. Gilbert and 
shewn to her. I am glad to learn that thee is pleased with th\ 
new home and new connexion. And, my dear sister, I truly 
hope and trust that thee will long enjoy the happy satisfaction 
of a peaceful and plentiful home. If I am not exceedingly de- 
ceived, thee has a kind and worthy husband. I have esteemed 
him very highly ever since I became acquainted with him, but 
circumstances forbade my expressing the kindly feeling of my 
heart towards him. I knew however that he had good sens'=» 
enough to approve, rather than condemn, my seeming taci- 
turnity. The case is now altered, — and I tender him the assur- 
ance of a brother's kindest afTection. And thee must impress it 
on his mind. 

When I sat down I did not think of writing half so much ; 
but as I forgot to stop sooner, thee must pardon my prolixity. 
Sincerely, Dear Sister, 

I am Thy Loving Brother, 


Lydia S. Wierman.

Resolutions adopted at a public meeting held in the City of 
Matamoras, Mexico, on the afternoon of April 2, 1835, during 
Benjamin Lundy's last visit to that city. 

The preamble and the first two resolutions have not been 

3. A colony of this character would demonstrate the value of 
free labor in the culture of sugar, cotton, etc., almost side by 
side with the planters of Louisiana and adjacent States. On 
this point mainly the advocate of slavery presumes to argue 
now ; and the practical argument which may thus be adduced 
in favor of the abolition of slavery will, we are confident, be 
more eflfectual than any other in extinguishing the system of 
slavery upon pacific ])rinciples. It will remove the last plank 
from under the foot of him who entrenches himself on the quag- 
mire of prejudice and despotism ; and he must then sink amid 
the quicksand of human turpitude or immediately place him- 
self on the solid ground of rational justice. 

4. Resolved, That, altho' the Mexican people have but re- 
cently emerged from the gloom of a most oppressive despotism 
under which they had, for ages, struggled with ignorance and 
persecution ; yet they have nobly thrown oflf the shackles of 
tyranny and degradation ; they have embraced the true princi- 
ples of genuine republicanism ; they have made rapid advances 
in carrying these principles into effect, not merely in theory but 
also in practice ; — and we have not the least doubt that this Re- 
public is destined to rank high among the most free, enlight- 
ened, opulent and powerful nations of the earth. 

5. Resolved, That, having taken up our abode in this part of 
North America under the fostering protection of the Mexican 
Republic, we speak from experience when we say that in our 
opinion it is the most suitable location in the world for such of 
our colored brethren in the United States of the North as ma}- 
be (like we were) desirous to change the place of their resi- 


dence for one where they may in fact, as well as in name, enjoy 
ihe blessings of freedom and the "eqnal rights of man." As 
the genial rays of the most brilliant heavenly luminaries are 
shed, alike, on men of all colors and conditions, so are the con- 
sistent provisions of Mexican legislation. Merit alone, not 
color, is a passport to distinction here. This may, therefore, be 
emphatically termed "the home of the free." It is, indeed, a 
home for the man of color. Here he may "repose under his 
own vine and under his own fig tree, where there are none to 
molest or make him afraid." 

Some of us have resided in this country many years ; and 
when we consider its contiguity to that of our brethren, and the 
consequent facility of migration, the amenity and salubrity of 
the climate, the fertility of the soil and its adaptation to every 
species of culture known upon the American Continent, its cen- 
tral location, convenience for manufactures and commerce, and 
proximity to the best markets in the world ; the remarkable 
healtliiness of this particular region even for northern constitu- 
tions, the total absence of prejudice among the natives on ac- 
count of color and the perfect equality social and political which 
is extended by them to persons of all colors from all nations ; — 
we sav when all these things are taken into consideration we 
feel ourselves fully warranted in adopting the conclusion ex- 
pressed in the first part of this resolution. 

6. Resolved, That, notwithstanding we have abandoned the 
nation of our birth on account of the persecution and oppression 
to which ourselves and our brethren were then subjected, — still 
we take a deej) and lively interest in the welfare and happiness 
of those we have left behind us. 

7. Resolved, That we shall hail with pleasure the arrival of 
our colored friends in this country, whenever they may choose 
it as the place of their residence and will do everything con- 
sistent with our convenience to welcome and assist them in 
establishing themselves in business, and we do assure them, 
that in case they prove themselves to he moral, industrious and 
prudent and demean themselves well, they will not only receive 
the most hospitable treatment, unequivocal friendship and safe 
protection from the Mexican people and government, but that 
they will also be invested with all rights, privileges and immu- 
nities, social, political and religious, that are extended to the in- 
dividuals of any nation or color ; and further, that the door of 


improvement being here plainly open and every obstacle in the 
way of emulation and honest competition removed, they ma>' 
by a proper exercise of their faculties, according to their 
various talents and capacities soon acquire wealth, respectabil- 
ity and honor, however humble may have been the stations they 
had previously occupied when prejudice reigned triumphant 
over them and tyranny had shrouded them in darkness and ob- 

8. Resolved, That the Secretary be directed to furnish Mr. 
Lundy with a copy of the proceedings of this meeting to be used 
by him in whatever manner he may judge proper for the infor- 
mation of our friends and brethren relative to our feelings, 
views and sentiments as above expressed. 

Signed by order of the meeting. 

Henry Powell, 

Attest: Jeff. Hamlin, Secretary. 


Extract from a letter written to Benjamin Lundy by some 
correspondent in Mexico. 

.... But the pump for raising water is of the first and in- 
dispensable importance. Hubbard's is the one to be preferred. 
One large pump might water many small farms but probably 
the better way would be for each farmer to be independent of 
another with regard to his water and use a smaller and less ex- 
pensive pump worked by a horse power which must be procured 
with the pump. Hubbard's second size will answer the pur- 
pose well. The largest size would be sufficient for a farm that 
would employ fifty hands. It would require an eight horse- 
power to carry it. The price of the largest size is 140$, that of 
the common size 40$, and the manual or smallest 25$. Gear- 
ing, pipes & machinery accompanying extra. The vessel owned 
by, or employed by the colony when not required in transport- 
ation should take mules from this port to Mobile or Pensacola 
and return with timber. In this way she would make money 
instead of sinking it; but great pains should be taken in pro- 
curing her captain and crew. They should understand their 
business well. The vessel must come provided with every thing 
for such a cargo, for nothing but the mules can be procured 
here. The hay, water, oats & corn for the mules, halters and 


chains for t}ing' them, sHngs for keeping them up and the 
timber for their mangers must all come with the vessel. 

Your idea of separating' families, or rather of bringing at 
first only single men, I cannot approve. Married men are the 
most efficient at all times and will give greatest satisfaction to 
the government. Their morals are also more to be relied on. 

I recommend that a vessel be bought of about 90 or a 100 
tons with not over 7 or 8 feet draft for the use of the colonists. 

There will be great economy in this as she can ply in the 
trade between this port and New Orleans & pay her own ex- 
penses besides transporting the colonists with all their agricul- 
tural implements. 


Letter written by Col. I. N. Almonte, Mexican Minister to 
the United States, and addressed to Benjamin Lundy, Esqr., 94 
North Fifth street, Philadelphia. 

New York, Sept. the 24, 1835. 
Dear Sir. — 

On my return from Canada, which was three days ago, I was 
agreeably surprised to find on my table your much esteemed 
letter of the i ith inst. I had the pleasure to converse with Mr. 
Child and I got some interesting information from him in re- 
gard to Texas. I shall see him again when he returns to town. 

I can positively assure you that our gov't never will part with 
Texas ; we know too well to appreciate good things, and not 
only that but the sale of Texas would produce a revolution in 
Mexico. I had advices from that city up to the ist of Sept. 
inst., and by them I learn that everything goes on smoothly. 
The Congress has not yet declared whether it is to be constit- 
uent or convocant, and many assure me that the Const'n. will 
not be changed but amended only. We shall see by next Packet 
what has finally been done. 

I am extremely obliged to you for the information you give 
me of Melish's map : would you be so good as to call on Messrs. 
'Follin & Cuerta, No. 36 Walnut street, and let them know the 
])rice of the said map? They will in that case give you the 
money and you will still be kind enough to buy it and deposit 
it into Mr. Cuerta's hands. You can show this part of my let- 
ter to them and they will, I doubt not, serve me. 


I shall not pass through that town until December and there- 
fore I shall wait it to have the pleasure of seeing you. I live in 
Cortland street No. 40, near Broadway, and will be happy t.) 
see you there. 

Yours truly, 

I. N. Almonte. 


Articles of agreement between Benjamin Lundy, of Wash- 
ington, D. C, and Lyman A. Spalding, of Lockport, N. Y., 
dated January 28, 1836. 

Articles of Agreement between Benjamin Lundy and Lyman 

A. Spalding. 

(Done in duplicate.) 

These articles of agreement made and executed on the 
twenty-eighth day of January in the year one thousand eight 
hundred and thirty-six between Benjamin Lundy of the city of 
Washington, in the District of Columbia, of the one part, and 
Lyman A. Spalding, of Lockport, in the State of New York, of 
the other part. Witness that whereas the said Benjamin hath 
entered into a treaty with the Governor of the free and sover- 
eign State of Tamaulipas, Republic of Mexico, bearing date the 
tenth day of March in the year one thousand eight hundred and 
thirty-five, whereby a grant of lands in the said state was made 
to the said Benjamin under certain clauses and restrictions as 
by reference to said treaty (which was published at Philadel- 
phia in the same year one thousand eight hundred and thirty- 
five) will more fully appear, now for and in consideration of 
the premises, also of the said Lyman's having advanced to said 
Benjamin certain sums of money as set forth in two previous 
articles of agreement, bearing date respectively the twelfth day 
of first month (January) 1832, and the first day of eleventh 
month (November) 1832, also of one dollar to him now in hand 
hand paid the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, and 
also of other good and lawful considerations, the said Benjamin 
and Lyman have agreed and by these presents do agree to be- 
come and do become copartners, hereby covenanting and agree- 
ing each to and with the other in manner and form following, 
that is to "say — 


1st. — The said Benjamin shall proceed to colonize the land 
granted to him by said treaty upon the terms and in the manner 
required thereby, so soon as in his judgment it shall be safe and 
expedient so to do, transacting the whole of the business of 
such colonization whether the same be with the authorities of 
the State of Tamaulipas or with any other person or persons, 
body or bodies politic whatever in his the said Benjamin's own 
name and in the manner which he shall think best. 

2d. — The reasonable costs accrued and expenditures incurred 
by said Benjamin in colonizing the said land shall from time to 
time as may be deemed convenient, be fully and correctly stated 
and proper accounts thereof be submitted to said Lyman or his 
proper attorney; which said costs and expenditures shall be 
equally borne and defrayed by the parties hereto, provided 
nevertheless the said Benjamin shall besides paying his own 
moiety furnish as far as may be practicable the funds towards 
defraying the said Lyman's half until this shall have amounted 
to the sum of five hundred dollars (in which sum the said Ben- 
jamin is well and truly indebted to the said Lyman upon a bond 
bearing date the twelfth day of first month (January) one 
thousand eight hundred and thirty-two, alluded to in the for- 
mer articles of agreement above referred to) : and all payments 
so made by said Benjamin for said Lyman shall be duly 
credited upon said bond it being understood by both par- 
ties that in case of difficulties preventing the completion of the 
colony designed or in case_ said Lyman's moiety of the expenses 
as above paid by said Benjamin shall not amount to said sum 
of five hundred dollars, then the balance of said sum after de- 
ducting the amounts paid shall be considered a loan to said 
Benjamin to bear interest at the rate of seven dollars for every 
one hundred dollars per annum as mentioned in the agreements 
already referred to. 

3d. — Immediately upon said Benjamin's receiving the deeds 
of said lands in fee simple or of any part thereof according to 
the provisions of the said treaty, they shall be equally divided ac- 
cording to quantity and quality between the said Benjamin and 
said Lyman or their respective heirs or assigns, to be held sever- 
ally by them subject to the terms of the treaty and laws of the 
country, provided nevertheless the said Benjamin shall have the 
full and entire right and power (which is hereby fully granted 
and conceded by said Lyman) of granting and conveying to 


each of the colonists required by said treaty gratis and without 
charge such portions of land as may be necessary to induce 
them to become settlers or in general of using such other 
measures in the transfer of portions of said land to the colon- . 
ists as will in his opinion best promote the interests of the par- 
ties hereto, he hereby binding himself to exert his best efforts 
in promoting the same. 

4th. — Should it at any time hereafter (before the deeds be 
received as aforesaid and the division made) be the desire of 
the parties to farm or improve any portion of said land upon 
their individual accounts, the said Benjamin shall have the first 
choice of a tract (say a league or labor as he may select) and 
said L.yman shall have the second choice, which portions so 
selected shall be held by each party in fee simple, absolutely, 
separately and apart from the partnership hereby formed as to 
the residue of the Grant. 

5th. — It is further mutually agreed that in case the parties 
hereto shall at any future time deem it expedient to purchase a 
tract of land in some suitable place in the vicinity of the land 
granted by the treaty and herein before alluded to for the pur- 
pose of establishing a commercial city, the said Lyman shall 
purchase the same for his own sole use and benefit, and the 
said Benjamin shall select or aid in selecting the site, prepare 
the plan, lay out said city, name it as he shall see fit, as also 
its avenues, streets, squares, &c., publish an accurate state- 
ment of its location with its commercial advantages, all at the 
cost of said Lyman. In compensation for these services the 
said Benjamin shall receive of and from the said Lyman a fee 
simple title to six lots in said city and one labor in its vicinity 
of the land thus purchased, he choosing the labor and one of 
the said six lots wherever he shall see fit, the other five remain- 
ing lots to be equitably selected according to the advantages 
of situation. 

6th. The articles of agreement heretofore executed and now 
superseded by these presents are hereby declared of no further 
force and effect but null and void. 

To the true performance and execution of all and singular 
the foregoing covenants and agreements, the said parties do 
respectively bind themselves, their heirs, executors, adminis- 
trators and assigns by these presents. 

In testimony whereof we have hereunto severally set our 


hands and affixed our seals on the day and year first above

Letter written by Lydia Maria Child, wife of David Lee 
Child, to Benjamin Lundy. 

Circumstances had prevented Benjamin from starting to 
Mexico with his settlers during February, 1836, the favor- 
able month; and therefore he had proposed that he and Mr. 
Child should proceed together to New Orleans, in disguise, 
and thence to Matamoras. Mrs. Child was the editor of the 
Anti-Slavery Standard. 

New Rochelle. [N. Y.], March 14th, [1836]. 

Esteemed Friend^ — 

I received your letter yesterday. I was very much distressed 
for fear that Mr. Child would fall in with your proposed 
route ; but he has pledged himself not to go without me, and 
now I feel easy concerning him. 

But your danger will be a hundred fold greater than his. I 
do beseech you not to be so rash as to think of running this 
great risk, merely for the sake of gaining a few weeks' time. 
In the common course of nature it cannot be very long before 
the ice breaks up. This delay is over-ruled by Providence for 
some good ; and being impatient under it will only be produc- 
tive of mischief. I think we had better wait till we can all go 
together. Mr. Child has proposed to go by way of Jamaica ; 
but this would increase expense, and be accompanied with 
uncertainty. What very important difference can a few weeks 
make ? 

I pray you do not go by way of N. Orleans. Having- sur- 


vived so many dangers, do not hazard all on one throw, just 
as the way seems open for the final accomplishment of your 

Very Respectfully & sincerely your Friend, 

L. Maria Child. 

P. S. — Joseph Carpenter & his family desire to be remem-

I have little to add to the enclosed letter ; but I hope to get 
something more definite soon concerning the situation, views 
and purposes 

Plenipe F — has recently arrived, and has promised us news. 
I fancy the late Charge is not disposed to be very communica- 
tive. Well, he has a right to be close, and as a general rule it 
is his duty. 

It seems to me that the Texan traitors are now going down 
hill to destruction as fast as the greatest sinners need to, unless 
Andrew the first (and last 1 hope) picks a quarrel & sends the 
"6th Regiment," which is now on army observation, to whip 
the Mexicans into the Pacific Ocean. 

It appears to me that Santa Anna is displaying consummate 
statesmanship. I see now why the Texans began to call him 
"the archfiend" about two months ago. The Mexican nation 
and government have been so long harassed, irritated, and 
insulted by these insolent slavite desperadoes that they will, I 
doubt not, make thorough work with them now. They must 
look unfavorably upon any new emigrants from the United 


Letter written by David Lee Child to Benjamin Lundy. 

The heading of the letter has been lost. 

The season when we wished to go has already 

passed and a few days or weeks cannot now be very important. 
I should suppose that very little can be done this year except 
in planting provisions, erecting dwellings and laying out lots 
so as to begin betimes next January. I wish to be there and 
will go by the first opportunity altho' I regret that the best and 
healthiest months for arriving there have passed away. But 


temperance & regularity render almost any changes of climate 
safe. Let ns know immed'iately whether you concur in our 
views. Arrived at our destination, our land selected, and the 
nature of the soil, climate, &c., tried, we shall be able to put 
forth a circular in the U. S. which will bring us settlers as fast 
as they can be accommodated. 

Aflfect'y Yr Friend, 

D. L. Child. 
Mr. Benj-a Lundy, 


A extract from The War in Texas, a pamphlet of fifty-six 
pages, written and published by Benjamin Lundy in 1836. 

It is susceptible of the clearest demonstration that the im- 
mediate cause and the leading object of this contest originated 
in a settled design among the slaveholders of this country (with 
land-speculators and slave-traders) to wrest the large and val- 
uable territory of Texas from the Mexican Republic in order 
to reestablish the system of slavery; to open a vast and profit- 
able slave-market therein ; and ultimately, to annex it to the 
LTnited States. 

We can no longer disguise the fact that the advocates of 
Slavery are resolved at all hazards to obtain the territory in 
question, if possible, for the avowed purpose of adding five or 
six more slave-holding states to the Union ! 

It is now time for the people of the United States who are 
opposed to this horrible evil (an evil unparalleled in the present 
state of the world) to arouse from their lethargy and nip the 
monstrous attempt in the bud. 


Resolution adopted by the Anti-Slavery Society of the State 
of Pennsylvania at its convention held at Harrisburg from Jan- 
uary 31 to February 2, 1837: 

Whereas, We recognize and appreciate the self-denying 
zeal and untiring efforts of Benjamin Lundy, by which he sus- 
tained The Genius of Universal Emancipation for eight years 
of general apathy on the subject of slavery, when no pecuniary 
embarrassment, no privations of society, no cold neglect or in- 
difference to his warning voice could dissuade him from his 


fixed principles of duty, but finally the attention of many was 
roused by it throughout the land ; therefore, 

Resolved, That Benjamin Lundy receive the thanks of this 


Letter written by Benjamin Lundy, and addressed to Wil- 
liam C. Wierman, York Springs, Pennsylvania.

My Dear Children, — 

I have been very unwell much of the time since I saw you. 
My time has also been so incessantly occupied when I have 
been able to attend to business that it has been out of my power 
to pay much attention to matters of a private nature. This will 
account for my delaying so long to write to you. The time is 
near at hand when I suppose you will set out for the west. I 
have thought much upon the subject since my return home, and 
indulge the hope that everything may be arranged to your 

Eliza seems at a loss to decide whether to go to the west, just 
now, or to wait until I can go also. As the State Society has 
now taken the National Enquirer on the condition that I shall 
still continue its editor, I do not expect that I can leave this 
part of the country before next Fall, or Spring. I have no ex- 
pectation that my location here will be permanent. I wish to 
arrange matters so that I can spend the remainder of my life 
among my children, if possible; and it is altogether likely that 
J shall obtain a discharge from my present station after a while. 
The friends of our cause will not listen to anything of the kind 
at present ; and, in fact, I believe, myself, that it would not be 
proper for me to seek repose, during the heat of the great moral 
warfare in which I have been so long engaged. 

As for Charles, I am of the opinion that he had best accom- 
pany you, if it is your desire. You will probably need his as- 
sistance, both in performing the journey with your goods, &c., 
and in preparing your new habitation. Even if he should re- 
turn again after a while, or choose to learn a trade, I have no 
doubt that it be the best for himself to go with you In fact, I 
scarcely know what he could do here, to advantage. If you 
should not have full employment for him, he would find no 


difficulty in getting it among our friends in that part of the 
country. Should he incline to learn a trade, as aforesaid, 
he could get better terms in a new country than in the 
old settlements. I have got a pretty good situation for 
Eliza, but I have no idea that one could be had, about here, for 
Charles, unless he would serve an apprenticeship of five or six 

I wish vou to write me, soon after the reception of this, and 
let me know, candidly, your views upon this subject. Let me 
know, also, what Charles thinks of it himself. And further, I 
wish to understand the precise time of your intended depart- 
ure, that I may, if possible, see you again before you set out. 

I received a letter from sister Mary a short time since She 
has not yet arrived in the city but we expect her to-morrow. I 
got Susan's letter, a few days ago. She sends her love to you 

Soon after my return here I wrote to Brother William Lewis 
but have got no answer yet. Have you received anything from 
him lately? 

We learn that our friends in New Jersey are generally in 
usual health. Isaac Lewis, Morgan Lewis' son, from Short 
Creek, Ohio, was here last week. He saw Father Lewis, 
Brother Samuel, Sister Ann FuUerton, and their folks a week 
or two before, who were all in common health. 

Do not forget to write me immediately. That is the popular 
doctrine now. Give my love to Lydia, Joel, Charles, and all 
the children. You have so many there, it would occupy too 
much time and space to name them all here. 

Your affectionate Father, 

Wm. C. Wierman, 
Susan M. Wierman.

Esther has been taken down with the Ague fever, and there 
is no one here to pay her the proper attention. I am confined 
to my bed more than half the time. 

I want Susan to take care of her, while her illness continues. 
When she gets able to work she may help Eliza, if she wants 
her. I will pay fully for her board, &c. &c. while she is unable 
to work. My journeyman is about leaving me, and I must shut 
up my office again. 

I will see you all as soon as I am able to ride that distance.

Obituary notice of Esther (Lewis) Lundy, wife of Benjamin 
Lundy; written by her husband and published in The Genius 
on June 3, 1826 : 

The editor has never made it a practice to insert obituary 
notices in this work, but he trusts that his readers will hold 
him excused for occupying a small space in the present num- 
ber, with the view of paying a tribute to the memory of his late 
bosom companion, whose untimely demise was noticed a few 
weeks since, during his absence. Though nothing can be said 
that will rescue from the power of the grave the friends that we 
love, after the relentless hand of death hath been laid upon 


them, still we may be permitted to breathe our last adieu, in 
obedience to the mandates of true and genuine affection. 

Esther Lundy was born in the county of Chester, in the State 
of Pennsylvania, on the 26th day of the 3d month, 1793. She 
was the eldest daug-hter of Henry Lewis, who removed with 
his family to the State of Ohio, in the early settlement of that 
part of the country, where he still resides. She had a birth- 
right in the Society of Friends, which she retained until the 
day of her death. Since we formed our matrimonial connex- 
ion, it has frecjuently been my lot to be from home, for manv 
months at a time. And in consequence of the peculiar duties 
of my calling, since I have been in a public line of business, I 
several times found it necessary to change my place of resi- 
dence. All this must have occasioned some trials to my wife ; 
and in addition thereto, she was for several years of the latter 
part of her life severely afflicted with a rheumatic complaint, 
that sometimes appeared to her with imminent danger. Yet 
amidst every difficulty, and under every afflictive dispensation, 
she evinced an unusual degree of fortitude, for one of her sex. 
Whenever it fell to my lot to be called from home, and what- 
ever might be the state and condition of her health, she uniform- 
ly and cheerfully gave her consent thereto; observing that she 
could not find a freedom in urging anything as a hinderance to 
the success of my labours in the cause of philanthropy. It may 
truly be said that she was actuated b>' the spirit that directs the 
Christian in the path of duty; and that the irreparable loss of 
her numerous friends and relatives is her eternal gain. She has 
left five small children, in addition to her bereaved husband, to 
lament her untimely death. In ordinary cases the severance of 
near and dear connexions by the cold hand of death, is sufficient 
to out-weigh every consideration that excites the pang of sor- 
row and keen regret. Yet when this is attended with peculiarly 
distressing circumstances,- the barbed arrow of grief is doubly 
pointed, and the mind must suffer all the poignancy of deep 
and heart-rending affliction. It happened at a time when every 
relative, except her little hapless children, was absent, that the 
messenger of death appeared with his awful summons. Yet she 
was surrounded with Christian neighbors, who spared no ex- 
ertions to administer the balm of relief in the hour of distress. 
But alas! what could they do? It was the appointed time for 
her to receive the glorious reward of her many virtues. Her 

2q8 benjamin lundy 

Saviour called— she passed the ordeal of dissolution with per- 
fect calmness and serenity of mind— and her spirit reposes in 
the mansion of eternal happiness. 


Editorial written by Benjamin Lundy and published in the 
Genius on September 6. 1828. 

More than seven years have now elapsed since the first num- 
ber of The Genius of Universal Emancipation was issued from 
the press, and sent abroad to take its luck in a fault-finding 
world and stand or fall by its own merits alone. No hireling 
prints were employed to trumpet a fame which it never deserv- 
ed. No associations of wealthy and influential individuals 
were formed for the purpose of giving it a circulation or pop- 
ularity which its own character could not sustain or extend. 
Its pecuniary prospects all grew out of barely six individual 
subscriptions ; and its success, in every other respect, was left 
to grow out of its own little self, with this limited circulation. 
But this was not the only difficulty with which it was doomed 
to grapple. Many of the declared friends of emancipation, dis- 
trusting its slender hold upon the favour of the people, de- 
nounced the attempt as "wild and Quixotic." The "great 
mass" looked "askance" at a project so novel ; while interested 
knaves poured forth their voUies of wrath and seasoned their 
execrations with threats by no means creditable to themselves 
or flattering to the editor. 

Nothing but a firm conviction of the correctness of our 
views, the justice of our cause and the rectitude of our inten- 
tions, could have sustained us in our undertaking, during the 
earliest stages of this discouraging conflict. 

But the fates have decreed that "perseverance in well-doing 
shall be rewarded." Our paper has worked its way through 
many opposing difificulties, and gradually extended and in- 
creased its patronage. And we now have the pleasure to sa> 
that it is supported by many of the most exemplary and in- 
fluential men — both political and religious — in the United 
States. The immense pecuniary sacrifices, however, which 
have been necessarily made to sustain it thus far, have not been 
sufficiently repaired to give it that independent, firm, and dig- 
nified character which its advocates might wish. 

The difficulties to be encountered in conducting a periodical 


like this are numerous and ai)i)alling. Each man who lends 
his support thinks that he thereby obtains an unqualified right 
to chalk out the course to be pursued by its conductor. And 
,as opinions relative to this course are various and conflicting, 
we must reject all but our own, and adopted it as a rule of 

Some of our subscribers who believe that the condition of the 
African race is materially involved in the ensuing Presiden- 
tial election, urge us to devote a larger portion of our paper, 
at this eventful period, to that important subject, — others, 
again, when they discover the most distant allusion to a "purely 
political" question, of this kind, very gravely order us to strike 
their names from our list, and assign for a reason that we 
have "abandoned our first principles and commenced the pub- 
lication of a political paper." 


Editorial written by Benjamin Lundy and published in the 
Genius of April 30, 1830, that being the first issue after the dis- 
solution of the partnership with William Lloyd Garrison. 

The Genius has been a weekly publication ; it is now reduced 
to a monthly. The amiable writer alluded to was the poetess, 
Elizabeth Margaret Chandler, who was for several years assist- 
ant editor of the Genius. 


Again T find myself, alone, at the editorial desk; and again 
I resume a monthly correspondence with the readers of The 
Genius of Universal Emancipation. I yet hope to have the as- 
sistance of an amiable and talented writer whose services in 
the cause are invaluable, but the care and responsibility of the 
publication depend entirely upon myself. 

Nine years have nearly elapsed since this work first made its 
appearance. During that period I have witnessed many vicis- 
situdes in the afTairs of life, have experienced something of 
the fickleness of fortune and a goodly share of what the world 
calls hardshi]:) and privation. Erom the commencement until 
very lately, however, it gradually increased in size, and it is 
believed in interest. The many diflficulties that presented them- 
selves have occasionally produced some irregularity in its pub- 
lication ; and this, together with, the unpopularity of the subject 


upon which it treats, in a portion of the country, and the gen- 
eral apathy among those who are friendly to the undertaking, 
have prevented as extensive a circulation as had been antici- 
j-iated. The strong desire that I have ever felt to contribute my 
mite towards the promotion of the good cause, has induced me 
not only to make great exertions to issue a weekly publication 
devoted to it but also to render what assistance I could in every 
other way. But I find ^hat the people are not prepared to go 
with me quite so far. 'i o speak in phrase a la militaire, I am 
too near the entrenchments of the enemy. — and, of course, like 
a prudent soldier, must retreat a little, until our troops can 
"screw up their courage" somewhat more. That they will ere 
long go farther I feel well assured ; and I shall still "fight on," 
and "keep ,the faith," hoping and believing that a glorious vic- 
tory will ulti^mately crown our efforts. That I shall yet have 
a severe struggle for a time, even with the monthly publica- 
tion, is to be expected : and I submit it to the con- 
sideration of those who profess a willingness to aid 
in promoting the work of emancipation — those who 
approve the course T have pursued — whether it be 
reasonable or just, that I should be subjected to in- 
conveniences and hardships almost intolerable when they are 
equally as much interested in the matter as I am myself, and 
have it in their power, by giving a little further assistance, to 
relieve me from a portion of the burden and enable me to labor 
much more efficiently for the attainment of our great and im- 
portant object. 

I do not wish to speak boastfully of what I have done, or 
essayed to do, in advocating the question of African Emanci- 
pation ; and I do detest the idea of making a cringing appeal to 
the public for aid in my undertaking. I am willing to work ; 
and can support myself and family by my own labor. But 
after a ten years' struggle to promote the cause to the best of 
my humble abilities, and in every possible manner, it may not 
be amiss to inform those who take an interest in this publica- 
tion, that I have (within the period mentioned) sacrificed 
several thousand dolllars of my own hard earnings, have 
travelled upwards of five thousand miles on foot, and more 
than twenty thousand in other ways ; have visited nineteen of 
the states of this Union and held more than two hundred pub- 
lic meetings, with the view of making known our object, &c. : 


and in addition to this, have performed two voyages to the 
West Indies, 1\v which means the Hberation of a considerable 
number of slaves has been effected, and I hope the way has 
been paved for the enlargement of many more. 

What effect this work has had in turning the attention of 
the public to the subject of the abolition of slavery, it would 
not become me to say, though I have carefully noted every- 
thing relative thereto that came within the range of my obser- 
vation. ' 

Of this, others who have acquainted themselves with the 
matter must judge. But I am fully persuaded that something 
of the kind is greatly needed and may be instrumental in doing 
much good. 

There is not another periodical work, published by a citizen 
of the United States, whose conductor dare treat upon the sub- 
ject of slavery as its nature requires and its importance de- 

And viewing the matter in this light, I shall persevere in my 
efforts, as usual, while the means of doing it are afforded, or 
until more efficient advocates of the cause shall make them- 
selves known. I shall now devote my undivided attention 
to this publication, and endeavor to make it as in- 
teresting as possible. I will neither be cajoled by the 
smiles nor awed by the frowns of any to a derelic- 
tion of principle or an abandonment of the cause. My 
humble exertions shall be directed to the one great end — 
my whole self shall be devoted to the holy work — my march 
shall be steadily onward; and neither sectarian pride, party 
zeal, nor even persecution itself, from the "powers that be," or 
that may be, shall turn me to the right hand or to the left. If 
I obtain a reasonable patronage for the work, it shall go on, 
upon the principle that it has ever done when under my imme- 
diate direction, notwithstanding all the opposition that tyranny 
and malice can array against it.

the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, in Boston, January 
27, 1853, on "The Philosophy of the Abolition Movement."

'"Any one who will examine John Quincy Adams's speech 
on Texas, in 1838, will see that he was only seconding the full 
and able exposure of the Texas plot, prepared by Benjamin 
Lundy, to one of whose pamphlets Dr. Channing in his 'Letter 
to Henry Clay' has confessed his obligation. Every one ac- 
quainted with those years will allow that the North owes its 
earliest knowledge and first awakening on that subject to Mr. 
Lundy who made long journeys and devoted years to the in 
vestigation. His (Lundy's) labors have this attestation that 
they quickened the zeal and strengthened the hands of such 
men as Adams and Channing. I have been told that Mr. 
Lundy prepared a brief for Mr. Adams and furnished him 
the materials for his 'Speech on Texas.' " 


Eulogy on Benjamin Lundy. written by Thomas Earle and 
published as introductory paragraphs to "Earle's Life of 

"It has, perhaps, been too often the province of Biography to 
record the achievements of the heroes of the sword — of those 
whose principal distinction arose from the torrents of blood 
they had caused to flow, from the number of widows and or- 
|)hans they had made, and from the extent of the countries 
which they had devastated or enslaved, with no better motive 
ihan that principle of self-aggrandizement which actuates the 
thief, the robber and the pirate. 

"Our enterprise is of a dififerent character. Its purpose is 
to record the deeds of a hero of the soul — of one who toiled in- 
cessantly, and patiently endured every privation in order that 
he might heal the wounds which tyranny had inflicted : that he 
might bind up the hearts which avarice had rent ; that he 
might sanctify the rights of consanguinity : that he might se- 
cure to labour its just reward, to virtue its due protection, to 
ihe rights of man their full enjoyment, to human intellect its 
freedom of expansion, to life the shield of just laws : and that 
he might elevate his race to a more full conformity to that re- 
ligion which teaches peace on earth and crood will to men." 



There was an article published in Tlic Independent in 1868 
(Ml The Anti-Slavery Labors of Renjamin Lundy, which article 
consisted of two contributed letters, with some comments 
thereon by the editor of the paper. ( )ne of these letters was 
written by Mrs. Susan M. Wierman, and gave a short history 
of TJic Genius; 1 do not reprint Mrs. Wierman's letter for It 
contains no new facts. The other letter was written by Mr. 
Thomas H. Genin. an aged citizen of St. Clairsville, Ohio, who 
speaks from personal knowledge concerning the beginning of 
Renjamin Lundy's ])ublic career, concerning Lunch's success 
in organizing the Lhiion Humane Society, and concerning the 
character of the work carried on by that association. I reprint 
i\Ir. Genin's letter in full. 

St. Clairsville, O., March 25, 1867. 
To the Editor of The Independent: 

In your notice of Leutze's intent to paint the emancipators 
(January 3, 1867), you say, "William Lloyd Garrison is the 
pioneer and founder of the grand moral movement which gen- 
erated the public sentiment in obedieilce to which slaverv in the 
I'nited States was abolished." I, would not detract from him, 
Iviit would allow the just claims of others. Garrison could have 
been scarce eleven years old when Renjamin Lundy assembled 
by his imj)ortunity some persons who had virtue in abundance 
but rusty for want of use, at the tavern of William Shaqjless, 
in St. Clairsville, Ohio, — among them Charles Hammond, sub- 
sequently of the Cincinnati Gacette — to form an abolition 
association imder the name of "The Union Humane Society." 

The record of their proceedings, in Lundy's handwriting, is 
before me. It is without date, but the 34th article of the con- 
stitution they adopted provides that "All persons who subscribe 
ibis constitution on or before the 20th day of A]:)ril, 1816, shall 
meet at Mt. Pleasant on that dav for the purpose of organizing 
the society." 

Under this constitution, b\- Lundy's exertions, eight local 
associations were formed, which sent delegates semi-annually 
to Mt. Pleasant for several years, and the central society was 
represented by delegates to the Abolition Convention held in 
Philadelphia. I was a delegate in 1819. 

The inhabitants of St. Clairsville. Ohio, indulged in some 


pleasantries at Lundy's efforts in 1818, '19 and '20, to sell his 
little house in that town for the purpose, as he said, of getting 
means to publish an abolition paper. In the latter part of 1820 
he arranged to have such a paper printed at Mt. Pleasant, called 
The Genius of Universal Emancipation. The enclosed letter 
of Mrs. Susan M. Wierman. of Magnolia, Putnam county, 111., 
eldest daughter of Mr. Lundy, gives its history. 

Mr. Lundy sold his house in St. Clairsville, closed his sad- 
dlery shop, issued The Genius of Universal Emancipation, de- 
voted himself soul, body, and business, to the cause of abol- 
itionism from the year 18 [5 until his death in 1839. He pub- 
lished the first abolition paper, commencing January, 1821, and 
continued it with little interrruption for nineteen years. He 
lectured and traveled much, and urged others to aid the cause. 
Not the least of his triumphs is his bringing Mr. Garrison into 
the field. This recruit has done him distinguished honor, 
though he did not appear in arms until Lundy had been thir- 
teen years engaged — eight years as an editor and five as an 
efficient agitator in other respects. As a fruit of his agitation, 
I send for Mr. Tilton's inspection an oration of May 14, i8t8, 
of which the "Union Humane Society" distributed a large 
edition. It aims to remove prejudices against negroes, and its 
arguments seem as much needed now as then.

Extract from the Historv of the LTnited States, bv Dr. H. 
von Hoist ; Vol. TL, pages 81-82. 

The immediate precursor and, in a certain sense, the father 
of the abolitionists was Benjamin Lundy a Quaker, born in 
New Jersey. In Wheeling, West Virginia, where he learned 
the saddler's trade, he had ample opportunity to become ac- 
quainted with the horrors of slavery as great cargoes of slaves 
on their way to the southern states frequently passed the place. 
Lundy had been endeavoring for some years to awaken an ac- 
tive interest among his neighbors in the hard lot of the slaves 
when the Missouri question brought him to the resolve to con- 
secrate his whole life to their cause. 

In 182T he began to publish The Genius of Universal Eman- 
cipation, which is to be considered the first abolition organ. 
The XlXth century can scarcely point to another instance in 


which the commandment of Christ to leave all things and fol- 
low Him was so literally construed and followed. 

Lundy-gave up his flourishing business, took leave of his 
wife and of his two dearly beloved children and began a rest- 
less wandering life, to arouse consciences everywhere to a 
deeper understanding of the sin and crime of slavery.

piled by Thomas Earle.] 

Thomas Earle was a lawyer and an abolitionist, and in the 
presidential campaign of 1840 had been the candidate of the 
Liberty Party for Vice-President of the United States. He was 
'a man of culture and at the time of his death was engaged in 
translating Sismondi's Italian Republics. He had known 
Lundy personally ; and he undertook the task of compiling a 
biography at the request of Benjamin's half-sister, Lydia S. 
Wierman, who furnished him with all the available material. 

An examination of Earle's Life of Lundy reveals the fact 
that the book consists of three parts ; namely, (a) Lundy's per- 
sonal narrative or autobiography, pages 13-31, 186-189, copied 
nearly in his own words from a series of letters written in 
Illinois by Lundy during the last year of his life and addressed 
to a young Quaker lady in Chester county. Pa., whom he had 
met in 1838 and to whom he became engaged to be married; 
(b) Lundy's travels, pages 31-186, in Texas and Mexico, based 
on a journal vvhich Lundy kept from May 5, 1833, to July 3, 
1835; (c) Lundy's opinions, pages 189-303, being a summary 
of the most important articles printed in The Genius of Univer- 
sal Emancipation, drawn from the files of that periodical and 
arranged in chronological order.

To Benjamin Lundy 
The early, steadfast, intrepid advocate of Emancipation. 

Self-taught, unaided, poor, reviled, contemned, 

Beset with enemies, by friends betrayed, 
As madman and fanatic oft condemned, 

Yet in thy noble cause still undismayed! 
Leonidas thy courage could not boast; 

Less numerous were his foes, his hand more strong; 
Alone, unto a more than Persian host. 

Thou hast undauntedly given battle long. 
Nor shalt thou singly wage the unequal strife; 

And to thy aid with spear and shield I rush, 
And freely do I offer up my life 

And bid my heart's blood find a wound to gush ! 
New volunteers are trooping to the field — 

To die we are prepared, but not an inch to yield. 


To THE Memory of Benjamin Lundy. 

Thank God that, though thy body Death hath slain, 

Thy quenchless spirit nothing could subdue ; 

That, though thou art removed from mortal view. 
Thou livest evermore — and not in vain ! 
Our loss is but thine everlasting gain ! 

Of Freedom's friends, the truest of the true 

Wast thou, as all her deadly foes well knew ! 
For bravely her good cause thou didst maintain. 
No threats could move, no perils could appal. 

No bribes seduce thee, in thy high career : 
O, many a fettered slave shall mourn thy fall. 

And many a ransomed one let drop the tear ; 
A nation wakened by thy trumpet-call — 

The world itself — thy memory shall revere !

Son of George Armstrong and Sarah Hunt ; 
Of Nathan Armstrong and Uphamy Wright. 



Nathan xVrmstrong, an early settler of Warren county, New- 
Jersey, was born about 1717, near Londonderry in the province 
of Lister, Ireland. He was a linen weaver by trade, a Scotch- 
Irishman by race, and a Protestant by religious faith. 

He came to America about 1740 and made his way to the 
northwestern frontier of New Jersey, where he met and loved 
and married a Scotch-Irish maiden named Uphamy Wright. 
He bought a large tract of uncleared land, built a log-cabin 
thereon and became a farmer, and continued thereafter during 
a period of twent}-nine years to enjoy the blessings of health 
and home and the rewards of industry and thrift. He repre- 
sented his township on the County Board of Freeholders, and 
was one of the original incorporators of Christ Church at New- 
ton, being named as such in the charter granted to that church 
in 1774 by the provincial government. He died August 11, 

Nathan's homestead, which is one mile northwest of John- 
sonburg and fourteen miles from the Delaware Water Gap, 
was held in the Armstrong name for three generations (1748- 
1880J,, a period of 132 years. 

Nathan and Lphamy (Wright) Armstrong had seven 
children ; namely, Elizabeth, George and John, William, Alary, 
Hannah and Sarah. Each of these children grew to maturity, 
married and has descendants living at the present time. 

Elizabeth Armstrong, the eldest child, born March 12, 1747, 
was the wife of Archibald Stinson, of Danville, N. J. 

George and John Armstrong were twins ; George married 
Sarah Hunt, and John married Sarah Stinson. 

William Armstrong married in 1778 Elizabeth Swayze, 
dwelt at Johnsonburg, N. J., and left four daughters; namely, 
Lydia, the wife of Abraham Shafer, Jr.; Euphemia, the wife 
of John T. Bray; Mary, the wife of John Casper Roy; and 
Sarah, the wife of Ephraim Green, Jr. 

Alary Armstrong was the wife of Capt. Robert Beavers, of 
Changewater, Warren county, N. J. 

Hannah Armstrong was the wife of Alexander Linn, and 
when a widow removed in 1800 with her six children to Espy- 
ville, Crawford county. Pa. 

Sarah Armstrong was the wife of Capt. Abraham Shafer, 
of Stillwater, Sussex county, N. J. 


A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of Nathan Arm- 
strong was compiled and published in 1895 by William Clinton

children: I. Wiliam, m. Lydia Stanton, a sister of Edmund 
M. Stanton's father; they had one daughter who is now Mary 
A. Burns, of Ottawa, Kansas ; and this Mary has one daughter 
who is now Esther Lundy Marsh. William and Lydia are 
buried at Clear Creek, 111. William's house was one of the 
stations on the underground railroad, and he took many a slave 
on the road to freedom. II. Lewis went to Illinois with his 
family about the beginning of the Civil W^ar ; his children 
are widely scattered. III. Mary died unmarried. IV. Esther 
married Benjamin Lundy, the philanthropist ; see page 254.

There are persons in the United States and Canada who 
bear the Lundy name but who are not descended from Richard 
Lundy the First. I shall mention a few emigrators who in re- 
cent years have come from various parts of Europe and have 
established in America small Lundy groups unrelated to us 
and apparently unrelated to each other; and then I shall enu- 
merate several Lundy groups, older and more extensive, some 
of which may have descended from Richard Lundy the First, 


but which can not at this writing be located definitely on tlic 
Lundy tree. 

Frederick Lnndy, a lad of fourteen years, was brought to 
Long Island, N. Y., from Bremen Haven. Germany, in 1838, 
i)y the Nostrand famil}-. Frederick had lost both his ])arents 
when a child and had been reared by his grandmother. In after 
years he wrote several times to Bremen Haven and made in- 
quiry about his ancestry, but he was unable to gain any infor- 
mation. He married and left a family ; among his children 
were John, Charles, Jerome, Frederick, Jr., and Walter. His 
sons under the firm name of Lundy Brothers now control the 
seafood market at Manhattan Beach, Long Island.

John Schooley is the earliest name in the genealogy of this 
family. He lived and died in Handsworth Parish, County of 
York, England. His wife's name was Alice. Two of their 
children remained in IJngland ; four emigrated to America and 
settled in Burlington county, New Jersey. Children of John 
Schooley, the Englishman : I. , a son, mentioned in tra- 
dition, name not ascertained, remained in England. II. 
Margaret, mentioned in tradition, m. a Mr. Barber and had a 
son Charles who removed to the City of Calcutta, India. III. 
Robert, mentioned in Smith's History of New Jersey ; accom- 
]ianicd by his wife and children, he sailed from Hull on "The 
Shield," and reached Delaware Bay in loth mo., O. S., 1678 : 
the ship moored ofif Burlington for the night, the river froze, 
and the next morning the passengers went ashore on the ice. 
Robert is mentioned as a constable in 1682. Tradition says 
that Robert came from Workshop, in the county of Notting- 
ham. No record of his descendants. IV. Thomas, mentioned 
in Smith's History of New Jersey, was a member of the Farns- 
worth Society of Friends in Yorkshire, England ; sailed from 
Hull on the Flie-boat Martha of Bridlington, and reached New 
Jersey in August, 1677 ; married Sarah Parker and had seven 




children. From Thomas, and Sarah have descended all the 
Schooleys that have intermarried with the Lnndy lines. V. 
Mary, who in 1680 m. John Rogers ; no further record. VI. 
John, Jr., whose will is recorded in the office of the Secretary 
of State at Trenton, N. J.; he m. (i) in 1696, Rebecca Ben- 
nett, and (2) in 171 1, Frances Taylor. It is supposed that 
Mary and John, Jr., were brought to America by their older 
brother Thomas ; tradition says that they came from Aughton 
in Yorkshire. 

Friends' records in Burlington county, N. J., show that a 
Sarah Schooley married Caleb Wheatley on 5 of 9, 1696, and 
that a Mary Schooley married Joseph Wright in 1710; but 
the relationship of Sarah and Mary to the other Schooleys is 
not known. 

I have before me an old manuscript wherein are given the 
traditions once current among the Schooleys of New Jersey 
concerning Margaret Schooley of England and her eldest 

Margaret's brother remained in England. He prospered 
and acquired great wealth ; but he died leaving no issue, so that 
his property would fall to his three brothers who had emigrated 
to New Jersey. This is known as the Schooley estate. 

Margaret Schooley married a man by the name of Barber 
and had only one child, a son named Charles. Charles Barber 
became a fur merchant, settled in the city of Calcutta, in India, 
and made a large fortune. He died without issue, but he left 
a will and gave the larger portion of his estate to his mother, 
the aforesaid Margaret Barber. The will of the said Charles 
Barber is recorded in the Surrogate's office in Calcutta; and 
also in England. Finally Margaret herself died intestate, and 
the legal title to the whole of her estate passed to her three 
brothers who had emigrated from England to New Jersey. 
This is known as the Barber estate. 

These two estates — the Schooley and the Barber — taken to- 
gether, amount to twenty-seven millions, the statement of the 
old manuscript on this point being very definite and satisfac- 


Thomas Schooley was a member of the Society of Friends 
in England and belonged to the Farnsfield Meeting in York- 


shire. He is said to have come from Aughton. His name is 
in the hst of the masters of families who sailed from Hull on 
the Flie-Boat Martha the latter end of summer and arrived in 
West Jersey in the fall of 1677 ; see Smith's History of New 
Jersey, page 102. The Farnsfield Meetinii^ "granted him a cer- 
tificate of removal to New Jersey, which was recorded in the 
Book of Records of the Society of Friends in Burlington 
county, N. J., on the 19th day of the 3d mo., 1684. Thomas 
married Sarah Parker, of Burlington county, N. J., in 1686. 
He died in or about the year 1724, say between the 6th of Feb- 
ruary, 1723, and the 13th day of June, 1724. 

On April 12. 1680, Robert and Thomas Schooley, of Crew- 
corn on the Delaware River, signed a petition that no liquor 
be sold to the Indians.

Richard Schooley, of Byran township, Sussex county, N. J., 
in his will probated in 1805 makes no mention of wife or chil- 
dren, but speaks of his uncle Robert Schooley, his cousin 
Richard Brotherton, and his cousin Elizabeth Dell. 

Samuel Schooley, son of Thomas the immigrant, m. 6 of 3 
mo., 1725, Avis HoUoway, of town of Burlington, N. J., b. 
February 9, 1706, d. in 1785. The record of their marriage 
is found in the books of the Chesterfield M. M. Samuel re- 
ceived by indenture 350 acres of land belonging to the Steven- 
son tract on Schooley's Mountain, from Mr. De Cou on Jan- 
uary 11, 1726, Samuel and his wife Avis being described as of 
Bethlehem, Hunterdon county, N. J. ; Samuel continued to hold 
some of this land until April 22, 1745, on which date he sold 
the remainder to William Henn. Samuel also purchased a 
warrant for 136 acres of land, November. 1729, and sold the 
same to William Pew in March, 1733 ; said land being near 
the point where Morris, Hunterdon and Warren counties meet. 
He owned land also in Hunterdon county, near Quakertown, 
in 1743. 

On 10 of 4 mo., 1729, Thomas Williams, Samuel Schooley 
and others made application to the Chesterfield Monthly Meet- 
ing of Burlington, N. J., for consent to meet together at one 
of their houses every First day of the week to worship God ; 
which request was granted. On ii of 4 mo., 1754, Josiah 
Dyer, Richard Lundy, Senior, and Samuel Schooley were ap-" 


pointed by the Kingwood Monthly Meeting to visit for spirit- 
ual care the families belonging to the Hardwick branch. 
Samuel and his wife Avis were among the first body of elders 
appointed for the monthly meeting in 1756. He died in 1761. 
In 1768, "at the request of Friends of Paulinskill," a meeting 
for worship was allowed to be held there once a month during 
the winter season at the house of Avis Schooley, who lived 
possibly near Stillwater. In 1775 the meeting was moved to 
the house of her son Benjamin Schooley. 

A list of six of the children of Samuel and Avis is found in a 
manuscript arithmetic now in the possession of A. A. Vance, 
of Morristown, N. J. The years of birth of the first three are 
illegible but can be approximately conjectured. 

Children of Samuel Schooley and Avis Holloway : I. Asen- 
ath, b. April 18 (1726?), m. in 1744, John Simcock, Junr. ; 
resided at first in Pennsylvania, removed in 1746 to New Jer- 
sey, and had three children : Samuel, b. 16 of 2, 1745, m. in 
1768; John, b. 5 of 10, 1747, at Greenwich, Sussex county; m. 
in 1773; Anne, b. in 1749-50, at Kingwood; named in the will 
of her grandmother. Avis Schooley. II. Ann, b. June 29 
(1728?), m. in 175 1, Judge Samuel Lundy, and left three 
sons, Isaac, Daniel and George; see page 269. III. Joseph, 
b. November 19 (1730?); supposed to have been the Joseph 
Schooley of Windsor, Middlesex county, N. J., who in his 
will, probated in 1761, left all his property to his wife. Tradi- 
tion says that he left a son James who left a son Joseph (of 
Burlington county, N. J.) who had a son William R. Schooley. 
IV. Benjamin, b. April 24, 1733, d. in 1809; m. in 1755 Mar- 
tha Lundy; see page 189. V. Samuel, Jr., m. Elizabeh Will- 
son, daughter of Gabriel Willson ; see page 329. VI. Rachel, 
m. 10 of II, 1755, Josiah Dyer, Jr., and had a daughter Avis. 
VII. Jehoaden possibly belongs here; m. Ebenezer Willson; 
see page 116. 

The will of Avis Schooley is on file at Burlington, N. J. ; 
but there is a copy of it in the Sussex office at Newton. It is 
dated June 20, 1771, and was probated May 24, 1785. In it 
Avis mentions her sons Joseph, Benjamin, and Samuel, and her 
daughter-in-law Martha (Lundy) Schooley, and her grand- 
daughters Ann Simcock and Avis Dyer. 

Tradition states also that Silas Dell and Richard Brotherton 
are among the descendants of this Samuel and Avis Schooley, 


and that the said Silas and Richard are in the same degree of 
removal from Samuel as Joseph Schooley of Burlington is. 


For nearly all the data given herewith concerning the family 
of John Schooley, Jr., I am indebted to a sketch written by 
Mr. Barclay White, of Mt. Holly, N. J., and printed in the 
proceedings of the N. J. Historical Society, Vol.^i^, page 248. 

"John Schooley, Jr.," says Mr. White, "was tne son of John 
Schooley of Handsworth Parish, County of York, England. 
By location and purchase he became the owner of 615 acres of 
land in the township of Springfield, Burlington county. New 
Jersey. Upon the northerly portion of said plantation he built 
a dwelling-house having walls of adobes or sunburnt bricks, 
and resided there until his death, which occurred loth mo. 17th, 
1725." He married in 1697 Rebecca Bennett, daughter of Wil- 
liam and Rebecca Bennett, of Bucks county. Pa., and sister of 
Elizabeth Bennett, who in 1684 had married Richard Lundy 
1. John and Rebecca had one child; after the death of Re- 
becca, John married on 25 of 2, 171 1, Frances Taylor, widow 
of Joseph Nicholson and daughter of Samuel and Susannah

finally settled in Ohio. To this account of Samuel given by 


Mr. White, I add the following details : Samuel Schooley mar- 
ried Alary Albertson of Warren county, N. J., daughter of 
Nicholas Albertson and his wife Anglechea Van De Water, 
and granddaughter of Cornelius Albertson, a merchant of Am- 
sterdam, Holland. On 12 of 3 mo., 1761, Samuel requested 
for himself, his wife and his two daughters, Phebe Meyers and 
Ann, a certificate of membership from the Kingwood 
M. M., in Hunterdon county, N. J., addressed to the M. M. at 
Fairfax, Virginia. On 9 of 4 mo., 1761, Jonathan Meyers re- 
quested a similar certificate for himself and his wife (Phebe) 
and children. 1 find that a certificate for a Schooley was taken 
about 1803 from the Goose Creek M. M. in Virginia to the 
Westland M. M., Pa. ; also that a family by the name of 
Schooley took a certificate of membership, before 1822, from 
Fairfax M. M. to Short Creek, Harrison county, Ohio. VHI. 
Rebecca, b. 8 mo. 3, 1725, m. in 1747 Joseph Wright. IX. 
Sarah, b. 6 mo. 6, 1727, m. in 1752 Joseph Horner. X. Jon- 
athan, b. 8 mo. 3, 1729, m. in 1750 Mary Wright ; left daughters 
only; on February i, 1806, Jonathan Schooley and his wife 
Mary gave a deed for land in Hanover township, Morris 
county, N. J. 


Abraham Shotwell, the founder of the Shotwell Family in 
America, was in Elizabethtown, N. J., as early as 1665. Dur- 
ing the ten years of his residence there, he was a prominent de- 
fender of the cause of the settlers in opposition to Gov. Philip 
Carteret and the Lords Proprietors in the matter of oppressive 
quit-rent exactions, in consequence of which championship his 
real estate was confiscated and he was forced to retire to the 
neighboring colony of New York. He is believed to have died 
about the year 1680 on Staten Island. John Shotwell, the son 
of Abraham, recovered in 1683 his father's confiscated real 
estate in Union county, N. J. So far as known, John was the 
first of the name who united in membership with the Society of 
Friends, but he was earnest in promoting the views and work 
of that Christian denomination, and had meetings for worship 
appointed at his house on Staten Island before his final removal 
to New Jersey. He was a resident of Woodbridge, N. J., at 
the time of his death in 17 18. He married Mary Bur- 
ton of New York, in 1679, and had at least four children, who 


are mentioned in his will; namely; two sons, John (Jr.) and 
Abraham, and two daughters, Elizabeth, wife of John Laing 
of Piscataway, and Sarah, wife of Benjamin Smith of Wood- 

John Shotwell, Jr., born about 1686, died in 1762 at his 
homestead, Shotwell's Landing, on the left bank of the Rah- 
way River, where he had located about the year 17 10, having 
married in 1709 Mary Thorne, Jr. (1686-1763), daughter of 
Joseph and Mary (Bowne) Thorne, of Flushing, Long Island, 
and granddaughter of that distinguished champion of religi- 
ous liberty, John Bowne, who suffered persecution under Gov- 
ernor Peter Stuyvesant. being sent a prisoner to Holland for 
persistently disregarding the Dutch Governor's placards for- 
bidding the harboring of Quakers and attendance at their pro- 
hibited conventicles, but being finally set at liberty by the 
authorities of Amsterdam and permitted to return bringing 
their noteworthy rebuke to the colonial officials for such in- 
terference with the freedom of conscience of peaceable and 
otherwise lawabiding colonists who were not hostile to the 
government, nor in any proper sense disturbers of the public 

Mary (Thorne) Shotwell's maternal grandmother Hannah, 
wife of John Bowne, was daughter of Robert Feake, of Water- 
town, Conn., and his wife Elizabeth, nee Fones, — the latter a 
niece of Governor John Winthrop, of Boston. 

Benjamin Shotwell, born 1726, youngest son of John, Jr., 
dwelt also at Shotwell's Landing, and died there in 1793. He 
married in 1746 his mother's cousin Ame, daughter of Richard 
and Amy (Bowne) Hallet, of Newtown, L. L, and grand- 
daughter of the John Bowne mentioned above by his third wife 
Sarah Cock. Amy's paternal grandfather, William Hallctt, 
was also son of a niece of Governor John Winthrop. 

Benjamin Shotwell's large family, including the mother of 
his distinguished namesake Benjamin Lundy, were thus doubly 
descended both from John Bowne, the sturdy Long Island 
champion of religious liberty, and from Adam Winthrop, father 
of the Puritan Governor of ]\Iassachusetts. 

Of the nine children of Benjamin and Mary (Thorne) 
Shotwell. I here mention four: I. Sarah, m. (i) William 
Hampton and had Benjamin, William and Amy, and (2) Jacob 
Lundy II. ; see page 167. II. Richard, m. Mary Martin, and 


had ten children, among whom Isaac M. who m. Edna C. 
Pound and had Nathan, who m. Phebe B. Gardner and had 
five children, among whom Ambrose M. and Manly, of Con- 
cord, Mich. III. P.enjamin, Jr., m. Bathsheba Pound and 
had among other children Elizabeth who m. Samuel Lundy, 
Jr. (page 314) ; Thomas, who m. (i) Tamer Lundy (page 
183), and (2) Hannah Lundy (page 276); Zachariah, who 
m. (i) Elizabeth Lundy (page 302), and (2) Edna Lundy 
(page 276), and (3) Ehzabeth H. Lundy (page 68); and 
Amy, who m. Asa Willson, son of Gabriel and Keziah. IV. 
Elizabeth, who m. Joseph Lundy and had one son, Benjamin 
Lundy the anti-slavery agitator ; see page 253. 

Ambrose M. Shotwell, of Concord, Mich., assisted by his 
brother Manly, has thoroughly investigated the genealogy of 
the Shotwell Family and has published his researches in a 
volume entitled, The Annals of Our Colonial Ancestors; or 
Our Quaker Forefathers and their Posterity. 


The Stocktons of New Jersey have been distinguished during 
many years for their ability and patriotism. The family is of 
English origin, and was founded by Richard Stockton, who 
with his wife Abigail came to America previous to the year 
1657 and settled at Flushing, Long Island. He served as lieu- 
tenant in a company of cavalry, but afterwards joined the 
Society of Friends. About 1690 he removed to New Jersey 
and purchased a plantation of 2,000 acres in Burlington county, 
where he died in 1707. 

Three Lundy men married Stocktons. In 1773 Richard 
Lundy IV., afterward of Virginia, m. Mary Stockton, daughter 
of Daniel (page 87) ; in 1779 Thomas Lundy II., afterward of 
North Carolina, m. Elizabeth Stockton, daughter of said 
Daniel (page 250) ; and in 1804 Amos Lundy of Hunterdon 
county, N. J., m. Abigail Stockton, daughter of John (page

N. J., mentions his wife Elizabeth, his sons Daniel and John, 
and his daughters Amey Stockton, Sarah Stockton, Eliza- 
beth Nicholson, and Mary Anderson. Fourth. The Daniel 
named in the will is the Daniel Stockton whose daughters Mary 
and Elizabeth married Richard and Thomas Lundy.

1770, and recorded in Liber 14 at Trenton, N. J., mentions his 
brother Joseph, his son-in-law Andrew Collins, his sons Solo- 
mon, Jonathan and Joseph, and refers to the two daughters of

Rohert Willson and his good wife Ann Hoag lived at Scar- 
borough in the County of York, Old England. They were 
members of the Religious Society of Friends. They came to 
America in the year 1682, landed at Philadelphia, and settled 
in the township of Chesterfield, Burlington county, N. J. 
Robert was a member of the Grand Jury which met at Burling- 
ton, N. J., in February, 1688 ; see Smith's History of New Jer- 
sey, page 579. 


Of Scarborough, England, and of Burlington County, N. J. 

I. Sarah, b. 14 of 12 mo., 1673, Old Style; d. q mo., 1700; 
m. in 1693 Cornelius Empson ; no further record. 

II. Deborah, b. 21 of 9 mo., 1674, d. 6 mo., 1687. at age of 
thirteen years. 

III. Rebecca, b. 14 of 2 mo., 1677, d. 1760, m. Samuel Large, 
settled in Hunterdon county, N. J., and had at least one son, 
Jacob, whose daughter Ann married Isaac Lundy ; see page 

IV. SamuelL, b. i of 5 mo., 1681, was brought to America 
when he was one year old, married Hester Overton, and "de- 
parted this Life in America, West Jersey, Hunterdon county 
and Kingwood township, the 19 day of 12th mo., 1761, in the 
81 year of his age and was decently interred in Friends Bury- 
ing ground at Kingwood." 

Samuel Willson I. in 1705 m. Hester Overton, b. 26 of 10 
mo., 1682,. daughter of Samuel and Hannah Overton. They 
settled in Chesterfield township, Burlington county, N. J., 
where a family of eight children were born to them; in 1730 
they removed to Franklin township, Hunterdon county. 

About a mile southwest of the village of Quakertown, Hun- 
terdon county, N. J., stands an old mansion. It is built of stone 


and high up on its western gable appears the inscription "S H 
W 1735." The initials are those of Samuel and Hester (Over- 
ton) Willson who builded here a home that was destined to 
shelter many generations of t|ieir descendants. 

The house gives evidence of having been well built ; the walls, 
laid up in clay, are firm and solid and will endure perhaps an- 
other century if no ruder hand than that of Time be laid upon 
them. The enormous chimneys contain almost stone enough 
to build a moderate-sized house. In the western gable near the 
date stone there is a small square loop-hole which one might 
suppose had been intended for use in defending the castle 
against the attacks of Indians were it not for the fact that the 
owners thereof were members of the peace-loving sect called 
Quakers. Running along the exterior walls on both sides is 
the water-table ; and an ancient pent-house protected one of the 
doors. The partitions of the interior are of wood and are ])an- 
elled all the way up to the lofty ceiling. Originally the huge 
beams were exposed to view, the ceiling being a comparatively 
recent innovation. Two small windows set quite high in the 
thick walls admitted but scant light and the general appearance 
must have been somewhat gloomy. 

The great fire-place with its stock-hole in the jamb speaks 
eloquentl}^ of the pleasures of the olden time, for here the 
young people of the family with their neighboring cousins and 
friends gathered around to enjoy social converse and innocent 

Among the many relics still preserved in the Willson family 
is a large cupboard brought from England in 1682 by Robert 
Willson, the father of SamUel. Other mementos are the ori- 
ginal deed for the six hundred acres of land dated 1730 and 
given by Jacob Doughty in consideration of three hundred 
pounds of lawful silver money of the King's Dominions in 
America, the marriage certificate of James and Martha (Laing) 
Willson bearing their autograjihs and those of many of their 
relatives and friends, inventories of estates, vendue lists, aiul 
many other old documents. 

But the oldest and most interesting souvenir is a well worn 
Bible, the several portions of which were printed at diflferent 
dates and afterward bound together ; the last part is dated 1618 
and is "The Whole Booke of Psalmes collected into English 
Meeter by Thomas Sternhold, John Hopkins and others, with 


apt Notes to sing them withal." Robert Willson's autograph 
appears on one page, and those of Samuel and his sister Rebecca 
on another.
