Dewey. 

The following from Hartford Times: 

Admiral Deiceij Belongs to Hebron. 

To the Editor of The Courant : 

If the gentleman or lady from East Hampton, who 
seeks to trace the ancestry of x\dmiral Dewey back to 
Colchester will kindly call on the genial town clerk of 
Hebron, the Hon. Daniel W. AMiite, he or she will be able 
to learn that they are very near right in their su})posi- 
tion; that is just as near as Hebron is to Colchester, for 
he, the venerable town clerk, has the documents to prove 
that the admiral sprung from Hebron. And if they care 
to follow out the detail of the matter to a finish they have 
only to call on ''Aunt Olive," Mrs. William T. Warner of 
(iilead, and she will tell them where the old Dewey house 
stood. And if the weather is fine she will show the foun- 
dation on the land now owned i)y Mr. Charles F. Burt on 

\Vcst street, (Ulead. 

Gileadite. 



1398 Appendix 

The Dewey Family of Hebron Origin. 
To the Editor of T]ie Times : 

An attempt to locate the ancestry of Admiral Dewey 
in Colchester, which has recently appeared in some of 
the Connecticut papers, has caused some comment amoiii: 
those of the old township of Hebron who have for some 
time been aware that the Dewey ancestry ai-e of Hebron 
origin. 

The town records show that Captain Simeon Dewey, 
the grandfather of Admiral Dewey, was born at Hebron, 
Aug. 20, 1770. He married February 27, 1794, Prudence 
Yeoraans. Their son, Julius Yeomans Dewey, born 
August 22, ISOl, was the father of Admiral George 
Dewey. 

Mary Perrin Dewey, mother of the Admiral, also comes 
of old Hebron stock, as a diligent search of the records 
has proved. 

These facts are further vouched for by a corresi)ond- 
ence with members of the Dewey family, who are inves- 
tigating the Dewey genealogy. 

Not a few of the citizens of Hebron can without diffi- 
culty trace a distinct relationship to the family in ques- 
tion. 

Town Clerk D. W. White gives the following interest- 
ing account of the Deweys, gleaned to some extent from 
the town records, but mostly from other genealogical 
sources. The descent is given in direct line. 

Thomas Dewey landed at Boston, Mass., 1G33. He 
married, 163S, Mrs. Frances Chirke. Their son, Josiah 
Dewey, baptized October 10, 1G41, married November (I, 
1GG2, Hepsibah Lyman. Their son, Josiah, Jr., born De- 
cember 24, IGOG, married, KiOO, Mehitable .Aliller. Their 
son, William, born IGDl, married, 1713, Mercy P>aiky.

Four interesting water-color pictures are now on exlii- 
I. it ion at Eckhardt's, showing the birthplaces of two of 
A<hniial George Dewey's ancestors. One represents that 
of his great-grandfather, Samuel Tallcott, and the others 
;iri' three dil'terent views- of the birthplace of his grand- 
!iH.tlier, Mary Tallcott Perrin. The latter house is now 
i!h' home of the daughter of an old Revolutionary sol- 
dier, while the former is the home of Mr. Thomas Tall- 
rot i, the great-grandson of its builder. Both are Glaston- 
liury landmarks. They are typical farmhouses of the 
-'•\-enteenth or eighteenth century. Aside from their 
interest in connection with the Man of Manila they have 
'•arlier historical associations. The Tallcott house was 
n-fd during a i)ortion of the Revolution as a manufactoiw 
I'or saddles for some of Washington's cavalrymen. 

The long well-sweep, which every colonial farmhouse 
of that day boasted, is down in the picture of the Tallcott 
lioinestead. The rambling sheds and lean-tos are painted 
as they now ap[)ear, ancient and weather-beaten. In the 
N icws of the other house the well-sweep is up. The time

'I'lie atmosphere in particular evinces ability. The spec- 
t.itor at once notices its remarkable clearness. Miss C. E. 
M''Lean of p]ast Hartford is the artist.

master of the Eiglitli Vermont regiment during- the Civil

National Life Insurance Company, and in 1877 was elect- 
ed vice president, a position he held until 1897, wlien hv 
retired because of failing health. He was elected a direc- 
tor of the comi)any in 1867, a position he held at the time 
of his death. He leaves two brothers, Admiral George 
Dewey of AVashington, and Charles Dewey of Monti)e- 
lier, also one sister, Mrs. Mary P. Greeley of Monti)elier. 
Mr. Dewey also leaves a wife and six children. His sons, 
Julius and Thomas, reside in Montpelier, Theodore is in 
the na\->^ and stationed at the Brooklyn navy yard. His 
surviving daughters are Mrs. J. L. Martin of Brattle- 
boro, Mrs. Fred A. Howland and Miss Helen of Mont- 
pelier. He died Oct. 26, 1900. 

Another version, authority not given: 

Yes, Admiral Dewey, the hero of Manila, is a Yer- 
monter, and his name will ever be borne upon the lips of 
the American people, aye, upon the lips of all lovers of 
liberty and peace, as the brave and gallant Commander, 
who struck the first glorious, fearless and decisive blow 
for the Independence of Cuba. Remember The Maine, 
was the battle cry, and Dewey's guns thundered! Shot 
and shell with deadly aim did the work! Down went the 
ships of the Dons ! Victory for Dewey and Vermont ! 

George Dewey conies of patriotic ancestors who fought 
the foes of Xew England in Colonial times and served in 
the American army during the Revolution. The Dewey 
family is closely associated with the eventful days of 
Ethan Allen and the "Green A[ountain Boys" and the 
Montpelier Deweys have for many years been consi)icu- 
ously identified with the business, political and social life 
of Vermont. The ])aternal ancestor of Admiral George 
Dewey, who emigrated from New Hampshire, was Simon 
Dewey, a pioneer farmer. His father, Dr. Julius Y. 
Dewey, was one of the leading citi/.ens of the Capital, a 
man of sterling worth, distinction and influence. His 



Appendix 1401 

r.l son, George, was ])orn Dee. 26, 1837, in a pretty, 
_.!'K«1 liouse on State street, jNEontpelier, Vt. He grad-

. : .[ forty years after he wins one of the greatest naval 
Ni, -lories in the historj' of the world, and has the title of 
i.'.ar Admiral conferred upon him by the American Con- 
-rt'-s. His successive promotion from a Cadet to a Mid- 
-lij^niaii. Ensign, Lieutenant, Lieutenant Commander, 
< ..jiiMiaiider, Captain, Conmiodore, and finally to be an 
Admiral, forms a-grand record of service to his country; 
;'.!id \'ermont, the State of his birth, unites with the rest 
*'l' the woi'ld, in extolling the gallantry and heroism of her 
soil who has won such imperishable fame. 

Dewey's Antecedents. 

To the Editor of The Courant : 

1 am somewhat in the spirit of your communicant who 
>it:ns himself ''A Vermonter," who in his article of Oc- 
t"!)er 20, headed "Hands Off,'' ^sks the grounds for 
<!aiming Connecticut to be the birthplace of xVdmiral 
i >c\voy. I am willing to give Vermont all the honor due 
!o her for producing so remarkable a man as Admiral 
1 K'Wt'y. 

The fact is that he and his mother, Mary Perrin, were 
I'oth horn in Vermont. According to the Talcott Pedi- 
•JTce, page 196, his grandmother, Mary Talcott, a cousin 
*'f my father, was born in Glastonbury June 17, 1758, in 
a house now standing (and owned by Orrin Utley), near 
Crosby's mills. 

In 1779 or 1780 she married Zeehariah Perrin, another 
relative of my father, and lived on a faun in Gilead. which 
si'Veral years later was bought by my grandfather, Gad 
Tah'ott, and added to his farm. Eour children were born 
to tliem in Gilead, when in 17>^9 the Perrins and Devreys 
imd many others of that regi(Ui nu)ved to l>erlin, Vt., 
where five more children were born to them. Mary, the 



1-1:02 Appendix 

eighth child, second cousin to nie, was born January .'In. 
1799, and married ])r. Julius Y. Dewey, June, 1825. 'Tin- 
number and order of birth of theii- children I do uot 
know. 

I have no old furniture, buttons or other relics of the 
Dewey or Perrin families, but I have a pleasant remem- 
brance of a three days' tarry among the Perrin an.l 
Dewey relatives in and about Berlin and Montperu-r. 
when on a trip to Canada with my father in 185G.

EAST HADDAM. 

Extracts from Hartford Times, Juno (!, 1000, the (l;i\ 
of the bi-eenteimial celebration of the founding of the 
town : 

Settlement of Iladdam. 

On the 20th of May, 16Cy2, all of these "Thirty-]^[ik.. 
Island" lands on both sides of the river were purchase! 
from the Indians by Matthew Allyn and Samuel AVylIy> 
for thirty coats, or the valuation of one hundred dollai-s. 
This purchase was taken up by twenty-eight persou<, 
mostly young married men from Hartford and vicinity, 
and the settlement was made in 1662. The names of 
these, our first settlers, were as follows, viz.: Nicholas 
Ackeley, Joseph Araold, John Bailey, James Bates, Dan- 
iel Brainard, Thomas Brooks, Samuel Butler, William 
Clark, Daniel Cone, AVilliam Corbee, Abram Dibble, Sam- 
uel Ganes, George Gates, John Hennison, Richard Jones. 
Stephen Luxford, John Parent. Eichard ri]"ier, Thomas 
Shailor, Simon Smith, Thomas Smith, Gcrrard Spencer, 
John Spencer, Joseph Stannard, AVilliam Ventres, James 
Wells, John AVebb and John Wiatt. They settled on the 
west side of the river, where they were joined by John 
Bates, Richard AValkley and others, and in October, 166S, 
were invested with town ]n'ivileges, and the place was 
called Haddam. Three years before this, the New Haven 
colony had united with the Connecticut, and there were 
now within the borders of the State twenty towns. There 
was, for a time, a controversy concerning tlie boundary 
line between Haddam and Saybrook, but the Legislature 
settled the matter in 1669, and since that time there has 
been no change in the boundary of Haddam, excepting 
the northwest coi-ner, which was annexed to Durham in 
1773. 

-* Beginning of East Haddani. 

East Iladdam, the twenty-tiist town, is one of the old- 
est, as well as one of the largest towns in the State. The 



Appendix 1405 

f.i-t ^^'ttleIncut was ])egim iu what is called the "Creek 
i;..A-." in 1070. One Iiobert C'liapman settled a little 
• :;li of this section in 1G74. Tlie Gateses, the Cones, 
c..' I'.ateses and ]3rainards came over from Haddam, and 
V. «Te soon joined by the ancestors of the Fullers, Perci- 
',.:!>. IJolmeses, Chapmans and Willeys. The first settler 
:•> Millington, the eastern parish, was Jonathan Beebe, 
.;b<>ut IT'-U. All of the inhabitants on both sides of the 
<\\rv belonged to one society until 1700, when East Had- 
dani was constituted a distinct society, and received its 
1 resent name. By the act of incorporation in 1734, the 
i.twns of Haddam, East Haddam, Chatham and several 
others were allowed to send but one representative to the 
(i.iieral Assembly, but this was changed in 1778, when 
liadtlam, East Haddam and Chatham were allowed to 
>fnd two representatives. About the time of the set- 
tlrnn^nt in the Creek Row, Samuel Spencer from Had- 
dam settled in the upper part of Hadlyme, and later on

from New London; also from the same place came Isaac,

in 1704, there were no settlors in this section until al)oui 
1732-3-4, when came the xVrnolds, Barneses, Erainard-. 
Chai^mans, Cones, Emmonses, Fullers, Gateses, Olin- 
steds and Spencers from the East Haddam parish; also 
Clark from Haddam, Graves from Colchester and Stew- 
ard from Voluntown. Daniel Smith came from the Ply- 
mouth colony, Lemuel Griffin from Lyme, and Thomas 
Fox from Colchester. This town was very generally set- 
tled in 1740, and the increase in population compared with 
other towns has been exceedingly small. 

East Haddam Churches. 

In 1700 there were thirty families in the town. The 
first Ecclesiastical Society was formed in 1700, and the 
First church in 1704. The third or present meeting house 
was dedicated November 27, 1794, and the first minister 
in the society was the Rev. Stephen Hosmer, who died 
June 18, 1749, aged 70. Mr. Hosmer lived in the Creek 
Row. The one hundredth anniversary of the erection of 
this meeting house was celebrated with appropriate exer- 
cises on AVednesday, October 24, 1894. The Rev. Mr. 
Hosmer was succeeded by the Rev. Joseph Fowler, who 
died in 1771. Joseph Fowler was succeeded by the Rev. 
Elijah Parsons, who died January 17, 1827, and was suc- 
ceeded by his son, the Rev. Isaac Parsons, who died 
August 21, 18G8. Mr. Parsons was succeeded by the Rev. 
Silas W. Robbins, who was dismissed in 1871. Mr. Rub- 
bins was succeeded by the Rev. C. ^tcCall, who was dis- 
missed November 26, 1888, and died in Hartford, Sep- 
tember 17, 1889. :^[r. ]\rcCall was succeeded by the Rev. 
John L. Kilbon, who was dismissed August 11, 1891, and 
succeeded by the present incuml)ent, the Rev. Francis 
Parker of Troy, Vt., January, 1892. 

Tlie Millington Ecclesiastical Society was incorporated 
in Octol)er, 1S33, and the church formed December 2, 
1736. The first pastor was the Rev. Timothy Synunes.

i i :.' jiicmbors irenerally were taken from the First cliureli, 
aii<i llieir lirst meeting-house was erected in 1743. The 
{.resent liouse was dedicated January 23, 1833. 

The society in Hadlyme, aljout two-thirds of wiiich is 
.,-.;t('(i in this town, was formed from the East Had- 
-Liiii First society, and Lyme Third society, in October, 
1742. The church was organized with ten male members 
nil tlie L'lnh of June, 1745, at the house of Lieutenant John 
Coiiistock, and on the 18th of Se})tember following, the 
iu'V. Grindal Rawson was installed pastor. Thomas 
HiHigerford, who lived in this society, was a blacksmith, 
.•iiid in consideration of his trade, the First society gave 
him a section of land. He was the first selectman of the 
tnwn, died in 1714, and was buried in the Cove burying 
LTdund. 

The Episcopal or St. Stephen's Society was formed in 
17!)], and tlie first rector was the Eev. Solomon Blakeley. 
'I'lie old bell in St. Stephen's church is said to be the old- 
rst in the United States. The First Baptist Society was 
"organized in 1809, reorganized in 1S44, and since known 
as the "Central Baptist Church in East Haddam." Their 
lirst i)astor was Elder Bela Hicks. 

The Methodist Episcopal church was organized and 
tlicir building erected in 18.34. The first pastor of this 
<-linrch was the Rev. Daniel Dorchester. The St. Brid- 
•-li't's Ixoman Catholic church wa^ erected in 18G7, and 
tlieir first pastor was the Rev. Father McCarton. 

The First Dwelling House at Landing. 

The first dwelling house in East Haddam Landing was 
•■rected in 1743, and a market place was opened here for 
the receiving and shipping of produce. The princi])al 
tavern was also here, and called "The Blacksmith's 
Anns. " The most imposing perhaps of the dwellings was 
tile one tT) which I have referred, and was the residence 
•'I' Ca[)taiu James Green. The lu-ick house next north is 
of more recent date, and belonged to Timothy Green, a

son of Captain James. On the south lived Captain 
Green's brother-in-law, Thomas ^Marshall ; next south, 
lived his son liichard; and next to that, his daughtt-r 
Hannah, Mrs. Joseph Iliingerford. The first house north 
of Captain James' was the former residence of h\< 
daugliter Xaney, and still further on was the residence of 
OHver Green. 

Prominent Men of Olden Time. 

Thus, surrounded by- his children, living upon the then 
beautifully terraced banks of a beautiful river, Captain 
James Green was appointed the first postmaster in the 
town of East Haddam. General Epaphroditus Chara])ion 
lived in this locality, and in 1793 was a member of the 
General Assembly. Prior to his election as a member of 
Congress, he was in command of the Twenty-fourth Con- 
necticut Regiment, and in 1778 was Commissary-General 
of Provisions for the United States Army. 

During this year when our army was starving at Val- 
ley Forge, he received a letter from General Washing- 
ton urging the necessity of shipping supplies at tlie 
earliest ])ossible moment. Under the old law for electing 
members of Congress, East Haddam has the honor of hav- 
ing two members at the same time. General Epaphroditus 
Champion and Colonel Jonathan 0. Mosley. Colone! 
Mosley was a lawyer l)y profession, and held the office of 
State Attorney for Middlesex county from 1797 to lSi»5. 
Colonel Mosley 's granddaughter became the wife of the 
Hon. Hiram Willey, now living in our midst. Timothy 
Green, to whom I have before referred,, was also elected 
to Congress under the district system. 

The Town in the Revolution. 

.V-n old forge was located near where the old East Had- 
dam Bank building now stands, and here it was that C"ap- 
taiu James Green made guns during the Revolutionary 
War. The town was loyal through and through, and as 



Appendix 1409 

, .srlv as June 30, 1774, voted unanimously for a declara- 
! nii.' and on June G, 177S, adopted unauhnously the arti- 
•..< of confederation. The town ^Yas i)iouii.t, generous 
,:.,{ patriotic, and quickly responded to the call for arms, 
• : .-n. provisions and money. Tlie Hon. Joseph Spencer 
•.v;l> horu in Millington, October 3, 1714. In 175G he was 
;i major in the Colonial army, and for distinguished ser- 
\l.e was made a colonel, and in March, 1775, the General 
.\,vs('mbly appointed Colonel David Wooster a major- 
irnicral and Colonel Joseph Spencer and Israel Putnam 
l'r!-;idier-generals. General Spencer's brigade was the 
I;i>t to leave Boston on the 4th of April, 1776, for New 
^■(.rk, and for gallant service during the occupation of 
'he city in August of the same year, Congress commis- 
sioned him ja major-general. General Spencer, after a 
hrilliant record, retired to his native home, was re-elected 
a deacon in tlie :^[illington church in 1788, and died Jan- 
nary 13, 1789, aged 74 years. 

The first settler in what is called Goodspeed's Land- 
ing was John Chapman, the oldest son of Eobert Chap- 
man, who settled north of the Creek Eow in 1674. Ilis 
iiome stood where now stands the Hotel Swan. He estab- 
lished the ferry at this point, which until within a few 
yoars retained the original name "Chapman's Ferry." 

Prominent Families. 

Xathan Goodspeed came to East Iladdam from Cape 
<'')d l»etween 1775-80. He bought this lot on which the 
lintel stands, built a large, connnodious house, and raised 
tlnve children — Xathan. Joseph and Anna. Joseph mar- 
liiMl a Laura Tyler of Haddam in 1812, and raised six 
<-liildren-George E. and William H., Nathan T., :y[ary, 
Ann and Sophia. The business career of George E. and 
William H. Goodspeed is familiar to nearly every adult. 
George E-died in 1863 and William H. in 1S82. William 
l^ Goodspeed, the survivor of William IL, is with us 
todav. 



1410 Appendix 

Thomas C. Bor.rdman was horn in AVcthorsficld in 
179S, and came to Millington in 1815, where he eugaiz:(Ml 
in trade. In 1836 he was elected cashier of the Rast lhu\ 
dam bank, and moved to the Landing the same year. If.- 
held the position of cashier up to the time of his sudden 
death, September 18, 18G5. 

Another to be remembered in the annals of our history 
is Gideon Higgins. Por many years he was a prominerit 
man in the town. Born in Haddam, September 8, 17S2, 
he early learned the house and ship-building trade, and 
worked at the business here and in New York. He cani'j 
back from Xew York in 1810, and being a member of the 
State militia was chosen captain of the Haddam town com-- 
pany. During the war of 1S12 the British made an at- 
tack upon and burned one or more of the vessels which 
were lying at Essex. Higgins and a small company 
armed themselves and in a small rowboat proceeded down 
the river to the scene of destruction. They actually made 
an attack upon the invaders, but, darkness coming on, the 
Englishmen made their escape with the loss of two men 
killed. Mr. Higgins was deputy sheriff of the county in 
1827, which position he held three years. In 1826-7 he 
was a member of the General Assembly and in 1834 was 
one of the judges of the county court, and during 1.^44-5 
was judge of probate for the district of East Haddam. 
Politically, Judge Higgins was a Whig and a member of 
the Republican party from its organization. He died at 
the age of 96 years. 

East Haddam has been the home of others who have 
gone forth into the world, and whose names today are 
recorded on the pages of history. David Brainerd, the 
eminent missionary, was a brother of General Jose{)h 
S]-)encer's wife. The Hon. Isaac vSpencer was for many 
yeai^ Treasurer of the State. One of the most remark- 
ahte men this country ever ]n-oduced was Dr. Elipludet 
Xott. Although not boi'n in this town he was left with 
relatives in Alillington at a very early age. He was an 



Appendix 1411 

. ntlian aud endured all the privations and hardships of 
,>\rity. His was an unquenchable thirst after knowl- 
■ i^,- and notwithstanding the privations and obstacles 
wiiicli met him on every hand, he actually received the 
Master of Arts degree from Brown University without 
.::«iiding college duties for a single day. He was or- 
.!;iiiied at the age of 22, and located at Cherry Valley in 
till* State of New York. His fame broadened and his 
lanions sermon on the "Death of Hamilton," which 
ranks as one of the most elociuent discourses ever de- 
livered in the United States, won for him universal at- 
tratiuii. Pic was very shortly made the president of 
I'nion College, which position he held for sixty-four 
}(ars. Union College is my alma mater, and many times 
'lave I heard that venerable old man tell the story of his 
life, when he would have his "boys" gathered around 
i.ini. Dr. Nott died at the age of 93. 

The first judge of the County Court for Middlesex 
t ..iiiity was General Dyer Throop. He died June 4, 1789. 
< 'alvin AVilley, who was a member of the United States 
Senate from 1825 to 1831, was also a native of this town, 
and died at Stafford, this State, xVugust 23, 1858. An- 
other !))'ight light was Edward Dorr Griffin, who became 
a brilliant star in the theological world, and later was 
) 'resident of Williams College. xVnd still another was 
the IJev. Xathaniel Enmions, who located in Boston, and 
a<'*|uired a national reputation for power and eloquence 
<■!> a Congregational minister. 

Dr. Datus AViiliams, although not a native of the town, 
••a fly became identified vv'itli its interests, and began the 
practice of medicine in ]Millington in 1823. Dr. AVilliams 
^vas a man jealous of the honor of his profession, with 
no favor for quacks or their abettors. The doctor was 
married to Miss Clarissa M. Peck of ^lillington and three 
-oim \ver'^ born to tliem. H. E. AVilliams graduated from 
ihc X.'w York University ^Medieal (*ollege, entered the 
United States service as assistant surgeon in 18G4, and 



1412 Appendix 

died from disease contracted while in the line of duty. 
George Gill)ert, the second son, is the present president 
of the Chemical Bank in New York. The third Sou dietl 
in infancy. 

William Iluugerford was born in Iladlyme, gi-aduatcd 
at Yale in 1S09, i)racticed law in East Haddam and re- 
moved to Hartford, where for many years he stood at the 
head of the Hartford county bar. The Hon. William 1). 
Shii)man, although a native of Chester, studied and prac- 
ticed law for four years in this town, and in 1850 remov- 
ed to Hartford, where lie was appointed United States 
District Attorney, and for several years held the position 
of Judge of the United States Court for the district of 
Connecticut. The Hon. Eliphalet Adams Bulkeley. 
father of our most excellent ex-Governor, Morgan (1. 
Bulkeley, graduated from Yale in 1824 and began the 
practice of law in this town. He was a native of the 
town of Colchester, but his son, Governor ]\rorgan G. 
Bulkeley, is a son of East Haddam. The^IIon. Moses 
Culver studied law with ^.Ti*. Bulkeley; was admitted to 
the bar in 1845, began practice here in 1846, and in 185(! 
removed to Middletown. He represented this town in 
the General Assembly, vs-as State Attorney, and in 1874 
was appointed a Judge of the Superior Court. Judge 
Culver died in October, 1884. The Hon. John C. Palmer 
was another |)rominent citizen of the town, a })raclicing 
lawyer, who removed to Hartford and became president 
of the Sharps r\Ianufacturing Company. Thus we see that 
East Haddam, our good old town, has been the ste})ping 
stone for numy who have attained eminenr^e in the pro- 
fessions, in letters and in the woild of business. 

^Manufacturing Industries. 

Tlie princi]^al occu]Kition of the early settlers was agri- 
culture, witli grist mills and saw mills scattered alouLT 
our many water courses. The plow, the grub hook and 
the spade were the principal working tools, and the broad, 



Appendix 1413 

j-iMToiis-faced ox was the settler's valuable assistant. 
••'j"ia' man with the hoe," God bless him, still survives 
.11 Kast Iladdam, notwithstanding the introduction of the 
.;.:.MdU', the loom and the forge. Cotton spinning, the 
j riiuMpal indu>try, was introduced into East Haddam in 
I'-l.'). The mill was commonly known as the "Stone 
Mill," and was located in Moodus. In 1816 a joint stock 
r..i!i])nny was organized, and the concern was known as 
'•'\"uv Smith Manufacturing Company." There have 
luTii many changes in this |iroperty, and at present it is 
nwned by the Monitor Company, who manufacture what 
i> known as '"the Monitor incubator." 

Where now stands what is known as the "red mill," 
I'rcm time immemorial there was a grist mill. The orig- 
inal owner of this ])roperty is supposed to have been 
i'ai>tain Ste],>lien Cone, and he purchased it from the 
lurjity-eight men who bought the town from the Indians. 
This })roperty was deeded in 1712 by Jonah Cone, who 
was a lineal descendant of Captain Stephen, to Captain 
• it'orge Gates; after several transfers it was finally deed- 
<d to the Xichols Company in 1834. .Ebenezer Nichols, 
the builder of the mill, was born in this town, dune 24, 
1770. Associated with ]\[r. Nichols was Stanton S. Card 
;ind George Higgins. Mr. Nichols bought out Card and 
lliugins and associated with him in the business Timothy 
'ireen. AVilliam E., son of Ebenezer Nichols, was born 
.\ngust 15, 1806, and after the death of his father, which 
<'<H'urred November 19, 1842, took the entire business on 
his (jwn account. In 1S69 the concern was reorganized as 
the New York Net and Twine Company, by which name 
it is known today, and is under the direct supervision of 
E. W. Chaffee. Dr. William E. Nichols died April 28, 
1^78. His son. AVilliam E., survives him, and was the 
I'romoter of the East Haddam Public Li))rary. 

Withoitt doubt the first saw mill in town was located 
;it Kashan. When and by whom it was built is unknown. 
A .i'lint stock company was organized and a mill erected 



1414 Appendix 

here iu 1829 for the maiuifaoture of cotton yarns. Tin- 
principal promoter of the enterprise was Noah Buckley, 
and the capital stock in 1830 was $17,000. Success an..! 
disaster followed. The mill was operated for a period 
of twenty-seven years and in 1857 the Moodus Wati-r 
Power Company was formed under the old joint stock act, 
and Bashan Lake, with the right of flowage, was pur- 
chased hy this company. Today there is not a vestige re- 
maining to indicate that there was ever a factory there, 
and of all who were directly interested, not one is living 
to tell the story. The Water Power Company petitioned 
for and oljtained from the Legislature in 1872 a charter 
incorporating the present Moodus Reservoir Company. 

Stanton S. Card was one of the early pioneers in the 
textile husiness of the town. Mr. Card was a native of 
SterHng, this State, and came here in 1821. He was early 
associated with Ebenezer Nichols and others in the manu- 
facture of cotton seine twines, and in 1832 was the pro- 
jector of the mill now known as the "Neptune." ]^Ir. 
Card died iu 1SG7, and the mill property, consisting of 
two mills, passed into the hands of his sons-in-law, Jona- 
than 0. Cone and Emory Johnson. Mr. Cone disposed 
of one mill to Albert E. Pur})le, the present owner, and 
Mr. Johnson retained the other. ^^Ir. Johnson erected a 
mill in 1862, now known as the "Triton," and since the 
death of Mr. Card, in '67, these mills have been under 
one management, and known as "The Neptune Twine and 
Cord Mills." ^Ir. Johnson died October 30, 1800, and 
was succeeded in the business by his son. 

Brownell t^' Company, consisting of J. H. and E. P. 
Brownell, started a wool-carding and cloth dressing fac- 
tory in 1S25. Tn 1844 E. P. Brownell jmrehased his ])ro- 
ther's interest. The works were enlarged, and the manu- 
facture of twines vs-as commenced. E. P. Brownell died 
in ISJ"), since which time the business lias been conducted 
by his son, Charles E. r.rownell. In 1810 Captain Asa 
Snvilh sold his intci-est in the (.liu'inal "Stiuie ^vliU" or 



Appendix 1415 

J ... Smith Manufacturing Company, and auotlier mill was 
.'Atud tor the manufacture of cotton varus, and stands 
. Mpositc the Maehimoodus House in Moodus, and for 
..I.nrs was known as Smith's mill. This concern also 
'. .i.sed through various changes and at present is owned 
..nd operated by the Brownell Company in connection 
v.ith their own mill. The Moodus Yarn Company's mill 
:,.is also had a varied experience. The mill was erected 
l-y Daniel Wetherell in 1846, and commenced the manu- 
t.u-ture of spool thread, but in 1851 looms were added and 
MU-ntiou was turned to the making of print cloth. The 
roinpany failed very soon and the present owner, A. B. 
^'h.•^s(^ took possession and has prosecuted a successful 
i.iisiness to the present time. J. W. Chapman is the super- 
inti^ndent'of this mill. 1755011 

The Atlantic Duck Company was organized in 1851, and 
rouuneuced operations in the original "Stone Mill" In 
1^57 they moved into their new building, which is known 
as tlie Atlantic duck mill. The manufacture of duck was 
ahandoned several years ago, and the mill was idle until 
ivccntly, when it came into the ownership of A. E. Purple, 
who is now operating the same in the manufacture of cot- 
it n twines. In 1878 Mr. Purple purchased from the New 
York Net and Twine company what was known as the 
" Kast ]\rill," so that today he is operating the three mills 
in the manufacture of seine twines, and they are known 
.as the Undine Twine Mills. .The Williams Duck Com- 
pany was organized in 1855 with a capital of $30,000. 
'i'lie original ]>romoters are dead. The present owners 
are living in Boston and the mill is superintended by 
Sidney :M. Barry. The East Hampton Duck Company, 
which was located at Leesville, went out of existence sev- 
• ral years ago, and the building and power are at present 
used by the Connecticut Construction Company, who fur- 
nish the T'lectric lights for M<iodus and East Ilamplon. 

The total numher of s]»in(lles in operation today is 17,- 
<iii<>. There is consumed each week lO.'J ])ales, or 51,500 



I'il6 Appendix 

pounds of cotton, or 2,575,000 pounds of raw material dur- 
ing the year. The combined amount paid out for wa-.- 
to mill operatives alone, counting fifty-two week« to tli-' 
year, covers $86,400. Having obtained these figures direct 
from the mill owners, I am giving you the correct estiin.-itc 
of the textile industry in the town, on this our two hun- 
dredth anniversary. 

Other industries have flourished, and here at Good- 
speed's Landing is located the extensive silver ]An[v 
works of Luther Boardman & Son. Luther Boardman 
was a native of Rocky Hill, but moved to this town in 1S4-J 
and became prominent in town and State affairs. Al- 
though Mr. Boardman died several years ago, the busi- 
ness is still coudacted by his son, Norman S. Boardman, 
under the original firm name. 

Ship-building was carried on quite extensively for 
many years," and the ship Chauncey Jerome, Jr., built for 
and commanded by Captain James Cone, was one of the 
largest vessels ever built on the Connecticut River, her 
gross tonnage being 1,500 tons. The United States gun- 
boat Kanawha was built here, also the transport General 
Lyon, the steamer Sunshine and many others. 

The Nathan Hale School. 
The old school house which today is a standing monu- 
ment to the memory of the youthful martyr spy, was 
erecied in or about 1720. After graduating froin Yale 
m 1773, this was his first school and the memory of 
Nathan Hale is dear to the heart of our people. We are 
proud that so fitting a monument exists within our borders 
and that today the two hundredth anniversary of our 
existence as a town also marks the birthday of him who 
gave his life to the cause of liberty, and only regrettrl 
that he had but one life to give. 

Ellis. 
John Ellis was the ancestor of all of that name in Sand- 



Appendix 1417 

wich, Mii5s. ''Many early records of Barnstable county 
wrw burned so that it is difficult to trace families and 
r.'<'urds of births, marriages and deaths of Sandwich, iWG 
n<tt complete." 

Much may be learned of this family by consulting rec- 
ords, town, church and probate — of Sandwich, Mass., 
Aiidover and Hebron (including Gilead), Conn., also such 
liooks as "Davis' Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth," 
"Arber's Story of the Pilgrim Fathers." 

John Ellis' name does not appear in any Mayflower 
list iniblished in this country as far as I know, but in a 
list which was copied from the English records, C. B. Til- 
linghast of New York or Albany states that his name ap- 
pears as No. 102 of the Mayflower Compaiiy. Another 
[•erson says: "If John Ellis came over in the ]\[ayflower 
it was not the first trip, but he was in Sandwich previous 
to 1643." 

C. B. Tillinghast also says: "I have now carried the 
line back to Leyden, Holland, having lately come across 
a book which gives a list of the whole Mayflower Com- 
jinny by name, including one Ellis, first name not known, 
but the records of Sandwich, Mass., twice refer to John 
>.wis, Jr., who came over in the Mayflower. The first au- 
tiioriiy refers to John Ellis and to one StolTel, son of 
John Ellis, as being in Leyden about the time the May- 
tiower sailed. Stoffel Ellis purchased the house of Dom- 
inie Kobinson in Leyden after Pobinson's death, and un- 
doubtedly remained in Holland." 

Some data collected from various sources relating to 
persons by name of r'Jlis. Among them the name of John 
i'JIis ai)]iears in the list of persons between ages of six- 
teen and sixty in Sandwich, in 1G43, able to bear arms.

t oVlock, Smiday afternoon, January 22. While Mrs. 
Northrop had been for some years in rather feeble health, 
-ln' had supervised the affairs of her household until a few 
<iays ])revious to her death, which resulted from an at- 
tack of the jn-evailing malady, culminating in the deadly 
I'lieumonia. Mrs. Northrop 's funeral took place from 
!:t'r late home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Ivev. K. H.

cidedly averse to indulging in unwarranted eulogy of any 
person, he cannot forbear offering a sim})le tribute to the 
rare worth of a Christian woman and expressing the sin-

by those who knew her as an unaffected and unassuming 
woman, of friendly and neighborly traits, quiet and 
domestic in her tastes, a model wife and mother, whoso 
industry, patience and forbearance made her home an

ESSEX. : 

(From Hartford Times, Nov., 1902.) 

Old Essex Houses. 

Tavern Dates Back to 1776— Other Places 200 Years Old 
—Dock House Built 1754. 

The town of Essex lays claim to having within its bor- 
ders a great number of houses dating back to Revolu- 
tionary and colonial times. Essex was originally a part 
of Saybrook and was then known as Pautapoug Quarter, 
taking its name from the Pautapoug river, a small stream 
flowing through it, so named by the Indians. The mer- 
cantile part of the town is built on a point of land' jutting 
into the river and bounded north and south by coves of 
the same name. This is locally known by old residents 
as "The P'int." The territory now embraced by the 
town was among the first to be settled by the pioneers who 
pushed away from the original settlement at Saybrook, 
hence the number of ancient houses. 

There is one which is of particular interest, although not 
so old as some others. It is the home of James M. Hay- 
den, and stands" at the foot of Main street, facing the 
river. It has a gambrel roof and two-story front, with 
wide i>iazza. The ground floor is a basement. The house 
was built in 17GG for a tavern and oecu])ied as such for 
many years. The interior remains jiractically uuchangeil 
Uriah Hayden was the first tavern keejK'r and the house 
has been occupied continuously for loG years by some 
meiflber of the Hayden family. 

In the little old parlor, with its low coiling, quaint old- 
fashioued wall paper and heavy cross-beams, hangs a pic- 



Appendix 1439 

! :r«' of George III and Queen Charlotte. This has been 
t ,..-i>' since the house was built. There is an old "George 
ill" knocker, kept highly polished, on a door on tlie 

i'ii side, which in the old days was the front of the 
'...use. Uriah Hayden imported a tavern sign from Eng- 
■,ind es])eeially for his house, when he opened it for pub- 
!;<• cheer, and this swung to and fro during the stormy 
viays of the Revolution and well into the nineteenth cen- 
t'.jry. This sign is still zealously preserved by the Hayden 
f.jinily. It bears the British coat of arms and the inscrip- 
t:wn -V. A. H., Entertainment, 1766." The "V" stands 
f t -r * ' Uriah, ' ' the " A " for ' ' Ann, ' ' his wife, and the " H " 
iiir Hayden. The sign is now cracked through its center. 
i'iic jK'Ople of Essex take much pride iu the old house, 
aM(l it is pointed out to visitors as one of the places of 
interest in the town. It is in a line state of preservation. 

A house, the age of which is declared to date back about 
'J' Ml years, is that occupied by Daniel T. Doane, in the 
iKTlh pai-t of the town, formerly Imown as "the old Wil- 
iiaiiis house." Mr. Doane has modernized it pjretty thor- 
oiii:lily within the past five years. The so-called Daniel 
Williams house in the south district, not far from the Say- 
'•rook line, is said to have been erected about the year 
!''*<', and until witliin a few years was continuously occu- 
I'li'd ].)y members of the "Williams family. Two other 
iiuuses in that neiglilmrhood, known as the "Burr house" 
-•snd the "Uncle Xed Snow place." are said to be nearlv as 
-Id. 

An old house, large, plain and almost forbidding in as- 
pei't, which stands on a high, level plateau overlooking the 
>tt'amboat dock and almost on the extreme point of "The 
i**int," is known as "the Bee Hive." It was erected 
^oiiu'time about the year 1720, and in olden times was 
''^nown as the "Molly Lay house." It M'as made a target 
tor Britisli bullets when the redcoats came up the river 
in the War of ISli!, and it is said the scars are still to be 
•■^een on the old oaken frame under the more modern elap-

1^4^ Appendix 

The exact place of nativity of our Ancestor, or the prv 
cise date of his birth, are not fully known; family tradi- 
tion says that he came from Devonshire, some.circuiti- 
stances indicate that he came from Oxford; he was bom 
It issupposed, in the year 1590; with regard to the futinv 
of his life, there is no uncertainty ; he came from Eudan.i 
m the year 1635, in the ship "Abgail," Ilichard Haok- 
well master; Mr. Edmund Freemand was at Saug-us, now 
Lynn, in 1635. Air. Lewis, in his History of Lynn, says, 
''This year many new inhabitants appear in L^Tin, and 
among them worthy of note Mr. Edmund Freeman, who 
presented to the Colony twenty corsletts, or pieces of plate 
armor. ' ' Mr. Freeman was subsequently in the Plymouth 
X-olony, and with nine associates was soon recognized bv 
the government as a suitable person to originate a new 
settlement. He was admitted freeman at Ph-mouth, Jan. 
2nd, 1637, and, after being a short time resident in' Dux- 
bury, obtained leave of the Colonial Government to com- 
mence the establishment of the first English town on the 
Cape. The grant is indicated by the record: "Plymouth. 
April 3rd, 1637.-It was agreed by the Court, that these 
ten men of Saugus-viz: Edmund Freeman, Henrv 
Feake, Thomas Dexter, Edward Dillingham, William 
\\ood, John Carman, Eichard Chadwell, William Almy, 
Thomas Tupper and George Knott-have libertv to view 
a place to sit down, and have sufficient lands for three- 
score families upon the conditions propounded to them." 
The enterprise thus originated and ].rojected, a large num- 
ber of persons from Duxbury, Plvmouth, and L^^ln but 
chiefly from the latter place,- the ancient Saugus,- re- 
moved to the location selected; and about two vears later 
the first successful settlement within what came to be 
known as Barnstable County was legally incorporated iis 
the town of Sandwich. 

Mr, Freeman's status may be inferred from the fact 
tliat, of the fifty-eight who became entitled to shares in tlie 
division of lands. Ids portion was much the largest. His 



Appendix 1445 

r^.^iiidii in the Colony is evidenced by successive elections 
- :;-si>tant to tlie governor in direction of public affairs. 
lU- was early appointed the head of a court of three, "to 
}..-arand determine controversies and causes" within sev- 
, :.i\ contiguous townships. AMien, after a residence of 
:!;;uiy years in the Colony, select courts were established 
!v (I'oveniment in each County, he was one of the-sclected. 
I)j.!ct'<l we find him always prominent, active, influential. 
1 hiring the Quaker troubles in the Colonies, which 
r»'a('lied Sandwich sixteen or seventeen years after its set- 
!:<-ineut, his counsels were for moderation; and, so far 
from consenting to severities, ho stoutly remonstrated 
.•i,:rainst all illiberal enactments and their enforcement. 
'I'hi-re can be found no blemish in his protracted and 
♦•ventfiil life, no dark spot in his wliole history. Pre-emi- 
lii'ntly respected, always fixed in principle, and decisive in 
.•i«-lion, nevertheless quiet and unobtrusive, a counselor 
and leader without ambitious ends in view, of uncompro- 
mising integrity and of sound judgment, the symmetry of 
his entire character furnished an example that is a rich 
h'gacy to his descendants. The record of his decease in 
l<i>^2 at the ripe old age of, as is supposed, ninety-two 
years, is all upon which we can predicate the date of his 
f'irtli. His Will bears date June 21st, and was presented 
for i)robate Xov. 2nd, 16S2. The following is the authen- 
ticated record: 

"The last Will and Testament of ^Ir. Edmond Free- 
man, Senior, exliibited to the Court of his majestic, held at 
I'iymouth the 2nd, of Xov. 1G82, on the oaths of John Fish 
and Nathan Xye, as followeth:— 

"The 21st day of June, in the year of our Lord one 
thousand six hundred eighty and two, I Edmond Freeman, 
the eldest of the name in Sandwich, being in a good mea- 
sure in health of body, and of ca|)able understanding and

• iian, by my knowledge or privity.

••Tiu' foregoing is a true copy from the Old Colony 
i:,-.'()rds, vol. iv. of Wills, part 2, p. 5. 

Attest: Wm. S. Russell, 

li.'gister of Deeds, and Keeper of the 0. C. Records." 

It is evident that our ancestor's chief - arrangements in 
rt'ijard to his worldly property were made some years 
jTcvious to the execution of the preceding will. His chil- 
dren had severally shared in his estate; and in 1678 a deed 
.tl" trift vested in his grandson, ^latthias Ellis, valuable 
property including the dwelling-house, in consideration 
>'!' natural love and affection and service rendered. Our 
vi'iierahle and honored Sire was buried on his own land 
"11 the hill in rear of his dwelling. The site, though not 
j.Tcatly elevated, presents an extended view both of the 
Min-ounding landscape and bay. This is the coldest bury- 
ing-] )lace known in Sandwich. His remains, with those 
of his wife, still rest there under the rustic monuments 
laniiliarly known as "f/<e saddle and pillion." The spot 
of earth where the dust of our progenitor reposes, hal- 
lowed in the remembrance of past generations, and rec- 
ognized by the aged who have kept themselves cognizant 
of well-authenticated traditions, is situated about a mile 
and a quarter west of the Town Hall in Sandwich, and 
iK'ar the angle made by the ancient county road leading 
from Plymouth, and the somewhat more modern highway 
by which the road leading from Plymouth to the Cape is 
made to diverge from the former to the right in a more 
direct course. The location of the grave is, without the 
least shadow of doubt, part of what was the homestead 
of our ancestor, and within a few hundred feet of what 
\vas rear of the dwelling conveyed by deed of gift to the 
dutiful Matthias Ellis. 

The reference ah-eady made to the burial-place of the 



1448 Appendix 

aged progenitor of so many bearing the family name, 
and of many thousands more bearing other names because 
descended in the female line, all now widely s,cattert't] 
over every part of the Union and in other lands, needs 
explanation. We have spoken of the humble and rude 
momnnents familiarly known as "the saddle and pillion." 
Called in his latter days to bury his wife,— and this was 
only a few years before his own decease ; the town records 
show that ' ' Mrs. Elizabeth Freeman died Feb. 14, 1675-G, ' ' 
—the bereaved husband feeling that some memoiial 
should mark the spot where had been committed to earth 
the mortal remains of her who had until now been the 
companion of his earthly pilgrimage, and knowing that 
monuments wrought by the sculptor were not to be easily 
obtained, bethought himself of a substitute. Summoning 
to his aid his two sons, and his grandson Matthias, soon 
after the funeral, he led the way to a large stone, or rock, 
in a neighboring field,— which stone strikingly resembled 
a pillion. This was taken, and, by oxen driven by Ellis, 
was hauled to the recent grave. Putting it in place, he 
then caused yet anotlier to be brought from the field; and 
this stone, having in form as was conceived a resemblance 
to a saddle, was placed beside the former to designate the 
precise spot ' 'where ere long another grave must be 
digged. ' ' Admonished by bereavement now added to the 
infirmities of age, that the time of his own departure 
could not be far distant, he had thought proper to provide, 
in the absence of monuments more desirable, these fancied 
emblems of the conveniences on which in the prime of 
life and to old age he and wife had often traveled to- 
gether. His injunction then was, "Here, after death shall 
have called your father, bring my earthly remains, and 
lay by the side of your mother; place the saddle upon my 
grave, and so let us rest until the resurrection day." The 
comuinnd was of course heeded l)y survivors. We are 
sorry to say that the })reseTit condition of the spot, which 
should be v.enerated and hallowed as a tri/sting-place, is 



Appendix 1449 

far (rom satisfactory to our sense of what reverence for 
c^ter.My demands. With grateful feeling we are per- 



,j to sav that the monuments j^laccd two hundred 



^Ve'.i''- ago ov 



er the two graves have never yet been dis'- 



Turb'd. The ploughshare has often passed over the old 
^^rj-.-slead which was conveyed by deed of gift to young 
^((..; but the saddle-and-piliion graves remain. In this 
.•r;;tu!atory acknowledgment, all who recognize the obli- 
ge,-.... -a to embalm in memory the virtues of a worthy an- 
ct-*.try will s\-inpathize with us. We have hoped that, be- 
Ur^' this volume closes, arrangements might be made to 
ti^^il the security, preservation, and suitable care of this 
r€i'">it<>ry of the honored dead. Our ancestor ha\'ing 
pi.nv to the closing scenes of life, and finally by will, dis- 
•' i-uted his property among his kindred, the probate in- 
V. ntory shows only a small amount of assets. 

We i)ass on to the enumeration of successive genera- 
t-iis, to be accomi^anied with genealogical statistics, and 
•::''li l)rief remarks, biographical and historical, as may 
•'• pt-rtinent. The earlier generations will be found as 
"'JMplete as reliable data of whatever kind can make them. 
V»'lieii we shall come to later generations, it may happen 
t'uit some descendants— possibly in some cases entire 
^:!t!ilies, with perhaps the exception of a few fragments — 
•■•re left out; which may be attributed to the failure of per- 
" ns whose aid we invited to make report. We have 
*'"nnd among correspondents a surprising difference both 
;n iutelligence and interest in such inquiries.

1460 Appendix 

HARTFORD. 

From Hartford Courant. 

An Opportunity for the Present Generation to Show Their 
Respect for the Dead. 

To the Editor of The Courant: 

The greater ]jart of the undertaking of the Euth Wyllys 
Chai^ter, Daughters American Revolution, to improve tlie 
ancient cemetery and widen Gold street is happily accom- 
plished. The old rookeries that adjoined and over- 
shadowed the ground are all gone, and the whole atmos- 
phere is as puire and sweet as though no vicious surround- 
ings had ever polluted the sacred spot. The dampness, 
which was such a destroying force to the stones in the 
yard, ceased when the sunlight and air were let in, and tlie 
monuments now restored and properly })reserved will, it is 
estimated, endure for centuries. 

Thus to restore cind preserve every memorial is the 
work remaining for the Chapter to accomplish, and in this 
duty which may I am sure be considered a privilege, we 
must ask the aid of persons in this vicinity, and also of 
those far beyond the limits of Hartford or even of the 
State; for the chiklren of Hartford's illustrious "Foun- 
ders" and early citizens are legion and living over a great 
area of country. To reach the descendants who have a 
right to learn of the present movement to preserve their 
family memorials, great eft'orts are being made; through 
the columns of the press much information will be scat- 
tered abroad. Circulars describing the situation will also 
be sent to all representatives of the "old families" whose 
addresses can be secured, and any such addresses which 
can be fumished to the cemetery committee will be gladly 
recei:^ed and circulars at once fowarded. 

The restoration of stones by the Caffal i)rocess is quite 
renuirkable, and some, destroyed past all identification, 



Appendix 1161 

l.ivo been perfectly redeemed, the inseription being se- 
!r'-«l from ])r. -Hoadly's invaluable list. 
( I lie hundred and fifty stones are already completed, 
liirt'O hundred and fifty remain to be restored and prt- 
'•rrved. Of tliis number many are the memorials of some 
\*Ty prominent families in the early life of this city. I 
will .'^tate again that a full record is being kept of all con- 
tributors, and this long list of ''descendants" will prove 
a genealogical record of distinct value in the years to 
lunne. 

In some cases family representatives join and create 
a "fund" for the preservation of ancestral monuments. 
As an exam})le I cite the case of John PlajTies, first Gov- 
ernor of the colony, whose name heads the list in the cen- 
tra! monument: Mr. John Bliss, Brooklyn; Colonel 
Frank ^Y. Cheney and family (the full name of each child 
will be printed in the official record) ; Major Louis R. 
Clieney; Miss Eliza Trumbull Cheney; the ]Misses Mary 
and Alice Cheney; Miss Caroline E. Day; Mr. John C. 
J>ay; Miss Catherine Sejinour Day; Miss Alice Hooker 
Day; Mrs.Walton Ferguson; Miss AVhite, Stamford ; :\rrs. 
C.B.D.Garmany; Mrs. Edward W. Hooker; Miss Eosalie 
II(»oker, Mrs. John F. Majmard, Utica; Mr. Edward Per- 
kins; .Air. Henry A. Perkins; :\[iss Mabel Harlakenden 
IVrkius; Miss Emily Se\Tuoui-; Mr. Thomas Day Sey- 
mour, New Plaven; Mr. Anson Phelps-Stokes, New' York; 
Miss Caroline Phelps-Stokes and Miss Olivia Phelps- 
Stokes, Xew York; :\riss Mary K. Talcott; Mr. James P. 
'I'aylor; ]\riss Gertrude Taylor; :\rr. John T. Terry, Xew 
Vork; the Eev. Koderick Terry; John T. Terry, Jrl; Rod- 
ei-ick Terry, Jr.; Eunice Terry; Mary Halstead Terry; 
•lohn T. Terry, 3d, all of New York; Mrs. Charles IP. 
Turner, Philadelphia; ]\Irs. J. A. AValworth. 

The fund for the erection of a memorial to Ozias Good- 
Vvin, thejincestor of unlimited posterity, is still 0}>en. 
Subscriptions of one dollar or more are solicited. The 
table-stone to the memory of the Pev. Sanmel Stone is one 



1462 Appendix 

of great interest ; it was erected in 16G3, and the inscrli.- 
tion is elaborate and a (^uaint example of the art of spell- 
ing and stone cutting of that early age. The s[ab is iu 
excellent preservation, but the pillars have suffered disin- 
tegration. Forty-seven dollars and a half is the price for 
repairing and preserving. About half this sum has Ije^n 
already subscribed by descendants, and the "Sanuiol 
Stone Fund" is open for further suhscrii)tion. 

The beautiful Wyllys monument is comi)leted, ready to 
be placed as soon as a desirable site is decided upon, and 
will be one of the features of the yard. ]\rany descendants 
have been happy to contribute to the memorial of this 
X)rominent family. Most of the table-stones have been 
restored and preserved, but there still remain a few in 
serious need of attention. Lieutenant Colonel John Alhii, 
1696. James Richards, 16S0, "one of his Majesty's as- 
sistants," very interesting stone, bearing coat-of-arms. 
Elisha Lord, 1725. Daniel Lord, 1762. Richard Lord, 
1712. Mr. Thomas AVadsworth, 1716 ; Mrs. Eunice AYads- 
worth, 1736; Deacon Solomon Smith, 1786. A table-stone 
to the memory of three sisters, daughters of Mr. Beau- 
champ: ]\[rs. Susannah McLean, the virtuous consort of 
Mr. Allen AIcLean, 1741 ; Mrs. Margaret Chenevard, relict 
of Mr. John Chenevard, 1785; Mrs. Margaret Keith, relict 
of Cajitain Jjohn Keith. This is the only stone bearing the 
name of McLean in the yard save that of the little child 
Allen McLean, son of Xeil McLean, which is already fin- 
ished. The Hon. William Stanley, 17S6; Mr. Stanley has 
no descendants, as he died without children, bequeathing 
all his property to the South Church. Anna Smith 
Strong, 1784, wife of Dr. Xathan Strong, daughter of 
Deacon Solomon Smith. The monument which attracts 
the most wides])rea(l interest is a large shaft in the center 
of the yard, erected in 1837, and })earing tlie names of the 
original proprietors of Hartford, most of whom lie some- 
where in that "God's acre."

Mrs. Julia G. Pelton, for the burying ground commit- 
tee of Eutli Wyllys Chapter of the Daughters of the 
American Ivevolution, has made the following report 
of the work accomplished, which will l)e found of great 
interest to many and shows the remarkable success in re- 
storing grave stones that were last falling to decay and 
which have been saved and per})etuated through the com- 
mittee 's work : 

xVt the close of the work in the burial ground last Octo- 
ber there remained about three hundred and twenty 
names on our list. This does not mean three hundred and 
twenty stones, for the larger jnirt of the fine ones have 
two or more names on them. After a thorough inventory 
of the ground by your conuniltee, and obtaining an esti- 
mate from Mr. Coffall on each individual stone, it 
seemed best to begin this season's work by the Chapter 
assuming the cost of restoring all stones which have no 
livin? reiu-esentative. ?*Iost of them were small, costing 
from Wvv to lifteen dollni-s. Of tlie greater nuuiber, w«' 
could iiud nothing more than tlie stone told — nanu\ date

of liirtli and death. Sometimes— but not often— we could 
I'.vA tlio name o"f the father. ''There lived a man" is all 
tin-it can be said of them. xV surprising number of head 
-tunes have disappeared, while the marker (foot stone) 
was in fine condition. On the back of these we have cut 
thi' record, when it could be found from Dr. Hoadly's 
!i>t. Some stones that were deferred from last year, be- 
<-anse we had not the information or j^ermission neces- 
.^ary, had crumbled during the winter, and are a mass of 
coarse sand upon the ground. ' 

The one of most note is to William Weare, a E evolu- 
tionary soldier in Colonel Chester's command. Upon a 
s!iiall stone we have had the facts of his birth, death and 
oiliee cut, and erected near his children's memorials. By 
October we had cared for seventy stones— a few of which 
l)i'longed to p>ersons having a local history. 

Gregory Woolterton, his wife Susannah and sou Sam- 
uel lie near the Sepnour group. The stones are in a re- 
markable state of preservation. Susannah's dates back 
to 16G2. Gregory was in some way related to the Lord 
family. He mentions three Lord ladies in his will. He 
liad three wives but left no family. His home was on 
Kim street. He left a large estate mostly to John Merrill, 
whom he adopted. 

Peter Vastile was born 1734, in parish of St. Luke's, 
London. He lived for a number of years in Boston, mar- 
rying Xaomi Ridgeway (whose mother, bearing the same 
name, is buried near Peter Vastile). They moved to 
Wethersfield, where he became a merchant, having at the 
same time stores in Enfield and one on the "north side of 
the State House in Hartford." He had one child, Wil- 
liam, who became an artist of local note. He was educated 
ill London but came back and served in Colonel Webb's 
IJegimeut during the Pevolutionary War. His two sons 
were lost at sea. 

Julia, Hannah, ^Mnry and Blackleach Welles are de- 
scendants of Governor Thonu\s Welles. 



14T8 Appendix 

Francis Duplessy came to Hartford from the Bar1)n- 
does. He was an important member of tlie social life (»i 
the colony. His French prayer book is owned by Dr. 
Hoadly. 

Jacob Ogden was a merchant on Ferry street and a 
founder of Christ Church. 

AVilliam Gardner was one of those killed by the exj)]o- 
sion in the school house, flis wife was Eunice Beldeu— 
a sister of our Ruth Wyllys. He was buried by the ser- 
vice of the Church of England, a clerg}*man from Hebron 
officiating. Hartford at that time was a missionary sta- 
tion of Hebron. In the extreme west of the ground is a 
marble slab lyiTig upon one of free stone. There are the 
names of seven Moore children upon it— most of whom 
died in infancy. 

There are four stones to members of the Xevin family. 
The name is extinct here. One of them married ]\Iary 
Allwood Smith. He died veiy young, and his widow 
married Hugh Ledlie. Mr. John F. Tracy owns a ]>or- 
riuger marked "Hugh Ledlie and Mary Ledlie, 1772." 
This one and two other porringers and a tankard, all of 
silver, owned by other members of the family, have a coat 
of arms upon them. Hugh Ledlie 's home was upon the 
site of the Allyn House.- It was a su])stantial colonial 
structure standing back from the street, shaded by large 
trees. It was oT^Tied and occupied by members of the 
Goodwin family later. One of his daughters married 
William Imlay, noted a century ago for his vast wealth 
and enterprise. 

Barnabas Dean was associated in business in Wethers- 
field with his famous brother Silas. When the latter be- 
came a member of the Continental Congress, Baniabas 
assumed the care of the business. He fitted out a priva- 
teer sloop, the "Revenge,"— eight guns and sixty-four 
men^ It was captured and burned by the British in 1771I. 
He removed to Hai-tford, building for his home the house 
on Grove street known as the Hollister house. It fronted 



Appendix 1479 

(^a Fj'tnt street— a deep la-^ii and driveway leading to it. 
In K-- ^vill this house was left to a nephew, a son of Silas. 
f\f\<v tlie surrender of Tieonderoga, Barnabas Dean was 
Scwi as Connecticut's commissioner to supply the forlr 
\jji'.l: I (revisions. Later in life he became a merchant of 
^T. at prominence, having for partners General Nathaniel 
CJi—iie, (juartermaster-general of the army, and Colonel 
'iNadsworth, commissary-general. They owned priva- 
'.. -rs, distilleries, grist mills, imported salt, sold grain, 
:v.'..l and flour. He was interested in the growth of the 
'. .-.wi, and one who was instrumental in establishing 
'. ! ri>t Church. He subscribed ten pounds for the enter- 
; : ;m', ]»ayable either in material or rum. He left no fam- 
..;■. The Chapter has restored his headstone. 

In 171)5 Colvin "VVhiting was teaching a private school 
■ • !',' while preparing for the ministry. He read prayers 
..!.'! sermons, but his sudden death prevented his ordina- 

lHiza])eth Cotton was the first wife of Dwell Morgan. 
Ih-r stone has lost every trace of lettering and carving.

"i-ters, were the wives of Elias Morgan. They have a 
'i'-ui)le headstone, from which the inscription is mostly 
-" I!.'. Lavina died 1792, aged 17. Sally 1795. The 
Morgans held a large amount of real estate, and built 
-••\iTal stately houses on Prospect and Morgan streets. 
Till' one on Morgan street was called the John Morgan 
•!.an>i(jii. They were proprietors in the "New Theater" 
"U 'iV'niple street. They had dealings in China, from 
\vhirli tliey brought two sets of service, having the Mor- 
:'-iii name and arms upon them. Elias Morgan died in 
1^12 in St. Croix, W. I. The Morgan stones are very 
' \|'<'n^ive and we need family interest in them. 

Ill making the inventory of stones we found one hun- 
dr<'»l and^hirty belonging to thirteen families— the Bulls, 
! 'lines, Burrs, Cooks, Chenovards, Lawrences, Beau- 
'iiauips, Goodwins, Lords, ]\[arshes, Seymours, Skinners,

Slieldoiis, Stanleys, and Wads^Yortlls. For these nm] 
many otlitn's, wliere there were not enough to constitute a 
family, a circular was prepared calling- attention to our 
work and its history. A thousand were issued and sciii 
over the country wherever we could obtain addresses. 
Our effort met with a degree of cordiality and a^jprecia- 
tion that surprised us. Not only was the response gener- 
ous in money, but a Godspeed was sent to the Chapter 
over and over. Many asked for additional copies to send 
to other members of the family. 

The Sepnours were the first to respond to the appeal. 
There were fifteen memorials to them. The eastern part 
of the ground is largely a family plot, including, besides the 
Se^miours, the "Wattles, Watsons, and Merrills. Its situa- 
tion is unfortunate, for the high buildings and dense shade 
of the trees has made it very damp. The stones, some of 
which have been cared for in quite recent times, were in 
bad condition. They have been the target for ink and 
refuse, causing the cherub's heads to assume characteris- 
tics not intended by the sculptor. The descendants are 
numerous, and prominent among them are our late Gov- 
ernor Thomas H. Se^miour, Governor Horatio Seymour 
of New York, and Origin S. Sejinour of Litchfield. Eich- 
ard Seymour, the first here, lived in 1639 on the east side 
of Main street, lie moved in '55 to Norwalk, a pioneer of 
that town. His son John married, 1G(U, Mary Watson. 
He was an original member of the Second Church. Died 
1713, leaving a large family. The records of the Second 
Church, as well as those of the town show the vScNinours 
to have been strong men, trusted in affairs and looked to 
for counsel in times of trouble. The family have raised 
a large sum of money, but there remains one hundred dol- 
lars yet to 1)0 subscribed. The whole plot is in as fine 
condition as the state of tlie stones made ])0ssil)le. The 
removal of trees lets in the afternoon sun. The contribu- 
tors are Mrs. Nathaniel Sliijunan, ]\Irs. J. Hannnond 
Trumbull, Miss Annie Eliot Trumbull, Mrs. Lewis

i:..-hard, who married, 1692, Mary, the daughter of Colo- 
:;••! .lohn Taleott, died 1718. He was a man of infiuence 
•i:^'l character, but became still more widely known 
t:;ii>iigh his famous grandson, Jonathan Edwards. Mary 
Talrutt Edwards died 1723 ; their son, Samuel, 1732. The 
Moiu's have been restored by members of the family- 
Mrs. Frank D. Glazier, South Glastonbury; ]\Irs. Bernard 
^V;!Iiams, and Mr. George Goodwin Williams. 

'I"li()mas Bruce, whose home was near the site of the 
'".li'sto], was an original member of the Second Church, 
■-'I'l through all the subsequent generations his descend- 
ants have been identified with its history. Tliomas served 
!!i the Pecpiot War, receiving later from the town sixty 
•■'••ns for "good service." Of his many descendants, 
Jlj-i-c are l)ut five stones standing— Thonuis, who died 
J'H; Elizabeth, 1741; Jose])h, 1750; John, 1794; Susan-

Mr. Jonatlian B. Bunce, Mr. Edward ^l. Bunce, and :Sh:

inasmuch as he kept two family serv^ants. He died 1(U"». 
His will is the first on the records. Of his descendant- 
few remain. The stone to Martha, the wife of Justin, 
has been cared for by Mr. Theodore L>TQan. 

By the research of !Mr. Henry Taintor we learn that 
Mr. John floward, of whom our records gave nothing, l)e- 
longed to a family of standing in Massachusetts. For 
four generations they lived in Ipswich, then removed to 
Hampton, Connecticut. A family history speaks of John 
as living in Hartford as a jeweller and cloak-maker. A 
qlock of his make is still doing good service in his family. 
He died ISO-t. Mr. Howard Collins put it into our power 
to restore the marble stone. 

The stone marking the grave of Andrew Benton, who 
died 1683, was found this spring sunken into the ground 
— ahnost out of sight. His descendant, John Jay Corn- 
ing, has put it into condition. Andrew Benton was an 
original member of the Second Church. He was twice 
married— first to Hannah Stocking, later to Ann Cole— 
both members of the Second Church. He left nine chil- 
dren. His home was on AVethersfield avenue. 

In 1784 the Reverend Benjamin Boardman left his pas- 
torate in Middle Haddam to settle over the Second 
Church here. Benjamin Boardman graduated at Yale 
1758. He married xVim Johnson, widow of Stephen Hos- 
mer. He lived in Jlaitford until his death, 1801. .He 
served as chaplain during the Eevolutionary AVar, was at 
the Lexington alarm, and present at the Boston seige ; in 
Washington's army in 1776 ; present when the British took 
New York. On account of the strength of his voice and 
its great carrying power, he was called by the soldiers 
''Big Gun of the Gospel Boardman." He left no imme- 
diate family. He and his wife lie under a fine table 
which ]Mr. George C. Boardman of San Francisco, deem- 
ing Jt an honor to be associated in our work, asked per- 
mission of our i-egent to restore. ' 

Mrs. Huldah Fish was a daughter of Deacon Ezra Com-

ff\(Kv H'i to Miller Fish of Hartford, 1786. She died 1806,

.N'f.irttl. iMiss Huldah Fish of Hartford, and IMrs. 
CKirifS Wheaton of Aurora, 111., have been interested in 
\{A r»'storation. 

Tli.'re are seven memorials to members of the Marsh 
f.irniiy. John died 1744; his wife, Elizabeth Pitkin 
Marsli, 1742. John was a grandson of John IMarsh, a 
»•; 'jieer of Hartford, and Hadlcy, who was the first white 
ix:-iu to explore Litchfield. For this service he received 
f.vt) {»()unds and lands. For forty sessions he was a mem- 
! .-r (tf the Legislature. Captain Samuel Marsh was a son 
•■!" Xnthaniel and Thankful Goodwin Marsh. He married 
« "atherine Chenevard, was a merchant, and a member of 
the first board of Aldermen. His wife, mother, daugh- 
!' rs Caty and Catherine Bull are buried in the west part 
«'f the ground. The cost of the restoration of the seven 
Mt^nes was borne by the family— Mr. H. N. Marsh, Joliet, 
in.; Mrs. Ellen Marsh Bishop, Cleveland, Ohio; Mrs. J. 
S. lioardman, Newport, R. I. ; Mrs. Talbot Mercer Rog-

In the more than one hundred and fifty years that this 
\vas the only or principal burying place, there were scores 
"f (Joodwins who found a resting place here. There re- 
main but thirteen stones to their memories. The oldest 
i> to Sarah Coles, the wife of Nathaniel Goodwin, the 
■'^<'<'ond son of Ozias and ]\[ary Woodward Goodwin, the 
settlers. The others are descended from Nathaniel. The 
laniily is ])rominent in the history of Hartford in its reli- 
'-"ioiis, so(Tal and mnnici])nl nlYairs. The subscribers for

and ^Miss Harriet L. Goodwin, New York. 

Near the wall in the extreme west of the ground are two 
marble stones to the memories of Moses and Sarah Butler, 
great grand-] )arents of Mrs. Eliza Butler McCook. The 
shade from the wall and trees have given them a -dim light, 
without any sunshine ; falling branches broke them badly. 
In all the restoration there has been nothing more ditlicult 
or, for their size, more expensive than these two stones. 
Mrs. McCook gave the order for their restoration. The 
Butlers are descended from Eichard, the settler, and 
from the Rev. Samuel Stone, through his daughter, Sarah, 
who married Thomas Butler in 16S8. Moses Butler kept 
the tavern at the corner of Main and Ehn streets. Some 
of the tankards used by the worthies of many years, in- 
cluding George AVashington, are now in the historical 
room, and some of its furniture is owned by ]\[rs. Mc- 
Cook. Mr. Daniel Butler, a soil of Moses, built the house 
on ^[ain street still occupied by the family. He was a 
physician of large ])ractice. His account books, still ex- 
tant, go back to the beginning of the Revolutionary AVar. 

Richard Lord came with the Colony in 1036. His home 
was on the bank of the river on Wells street. He was a 
member of the general court and commander of the first 
troup of horse, serving in the early Indiaii wars. He 
died in New London, imt left a family, which, with its 
descendants, has been a noted part of Hartford's history. 
It was to this first Ivichard that ]\rrs. Cam]) two years ago 
erected the memorial. The second Richard married a

'i'liomas Bull was in Hartford 1(336, living in the soiith-

iliurch. The next year he was fighting in the Pequot 
War. In '53 he was a lieutenant in a company formed 
t" llglit the Dutch. He was in command of the fort at 
Sayl)rook when Sir Edmund Andros attempted to get pos- 
.-•«'ssion. His descendants showed the same brave martial 
>pirit in the French and Indian Wars. Four generations 
from Thomas came Caleb Bull, who became the father of 
r.iiu' sons, who all lived to mature life— prominent citi- 
::.-ns of Hartford. The family are raising a fund to re-

was a magistrate from 1G64 to IGSO, and a connaissioner 
to the United Colonies. He imited to these pnblic duties 
the business of a merchant, and dealt in real estate. He 
di»'d 1680, leaving to the Latin School in Hartford fifty 
i»ounds, and twenty to the ]ioor of Hartford. He has a 
large table monument, which at its head has the Richards 
arms the same as the Somerset County family. An at- 
t'.'iiipt at restoring the monument was made some years 
ago, l)iit only em])hasized its decay. On account of this 
failure the cost of its present restoration is the greatest in

AVlien the Talcott stones were cared for two years a-, 
nothing was done for Joseph 's, 1762. The face was gon. 
and there was much doubt if there was life enough in tli. 
material to admit of treatment; but this season, under th.- 
sanction of Mr. James Talcott of Xew York, it is reston.l 
The table to Rev. Samuel Stone is the most interestin-^ 
one m the ground. The quality of the stone has pre- 
vented Its crumbling. AMien it was erected there was no 
attempt at smoothing or polishing the foundation abov 
ground. It is as rough as when taken from the quanv 
The inscription covers the entire top. The letters aiV 
quaint and the spelling correct for the times. The upj.er 
table had lost a large corner. This has been suplied the 
riveting being from the inside. Samuel Stone was the 
third son of John of Plertford, England. He was edu- 
cated at Emanuel College. For three vears after o-radu- 
atmg he was a Puritan lecturer at Toucester. He ha.i 
come to Boston in 1633; at the organization of the church 
m IS ewtown he was chosen its teacher. This office he held 
until Mr. Hooker's death, when he succeeded to the pas- 
torate. On the arrival of the Colony in Hartford, Mr. 
Stone, with Mr. William Goodwin, was appointed to buv 
land of the Indians. In 1G37 he was chaplain of the litti; 
army that went out to the Pequot War. He afterward 
received a large grant of land for his services. His wife

abeth Alljm of Boston. Their home was on Arch street, 
between Wiiham Goodwin's and Thomas Hooker's Of 
his three sons, two died unmarried. The other returned to 
Engdand after completing his studies at Harvard. From 
his fivedaughters he has a large number of descendants. 
Those interested in the restoration are Mrs. J. J A].- 
Coak, Mrs. William N. Pelton, and Miss Marjorie siill- 
man of Hartford; Mrs. Maria Watson Pinnev'of Derhv:

Mr. Frederick Church, the artist, has cared for the 
i:..jnorial to ]vliss Elizabeth Church, who died 1751. Her 
! -i-Itand, Joseph, was descended from Eichard Church, 
;in orii::inal proprietor of Hartford and Hadley. 

Haniel Jones 'was interested in the welfare of this city, 
;jiul especiall}^ in perfecting its military organizations. 
His first wife, Olive Tinker, is Imried by his side in the 
wrst })art of the ground. His second wife, Khoda 
Mather, lived until burials were not allowed in the old 
;.'r(»iind. Levi Jones was one of the victims of the school 
house explosion. Amasa and Hope Jones, his wife, and 
Pantry lie in other parts of the ground. The various 
."-ti^nos have been restored by Miss Susan ^I. Day, and 
Miss Mary Elizabeth Day, Xew Haven; Mr. Eobert "Web-

Thomas Thatcher, New York; and Mr. John Pantry

owned the south half of Charter Oak Place. The stones

1 )r. Elikim Fish and his wife, Sarah Stilhnan Fish, have 
<'n(> of the two tables of which the tablet for inscri])tion is 
marble. The restoration has been expensive and difficult. 
Mr. George C. Buell, of Rochester, a great grandson, has 
defrayed the ex])ense. Elikim Fish was born 1741, grad- 
uated at Yale 17G0. He was a successful jihysician here 
until his tleath in 1804. He was the first president of 
Hartford County Medical Society. His only child, Beeca, 
married a son of Colonel— later, Hon. Jesse Koot, Chief 
Justice of the Supreme Court. 



1490 Appendix . 

Colonel Jolin Alh^l was the eldest son of Hon. Mattlu'w 
Allvn of Windsor. He married in 1651 Ann Smitii. 
grauddangliter of William Pynclieon, founder of Spring- 
field. For a 'wedding present, his father gave him a 
large tract of land in Hartford. He held almost every 
office in the gift of the colony, except that of Governor. 
He was a deputy and magistrate, officer from cornet t<j 
colonel in the troops, secretary of the Colony for thirty- 
five years, appointed by Winthrop together with Saninol 
Wyllys and John Talcott, to have the custody of the char- 
ter, a commissioner of the United Colonies. He and Gov- 
ernor Treat constituted the Colonial representatives of 
Andros 's council, and he was Judge of Court of Common 
Pleas for Hartford County. He translated, with addi- 
tions and alterations, John Mason's history of the Pe- 
quots. Late in life he married the widow of Samuel 
Welles, and died 1696, leaving six daughters, one of 
whom married a New Haven Alljm. His descendants 
who have cared for the stone are Miss Fanny Pratt, Miss 
Alice Stillman, Mr. Francis Richards, and Mr. James T. 
Pratt of Hartford ; Mrs. Frederick N. Stanley, New Brit- 
ain; Mr. Ralph Ensign of Simsbury; Mr. Edward Hnr- 
land and Mrs. Lucy Brace Pratt Kennedy, N. Y. ; and ]\Ir. 
J. William Alhii and Captain W. B. Hotchkiss, New 
York. At the foot of Colonel Allyn's table is the grave 
of his daughter, ]\lrs. Anna, wife of Joseph AlTiitiug, mul 
that of his grandson Joseph. Mr. Joseph ^Miiting, treas- 
urer of the Colony from 1678-1719, was buried at New 
Haven. 

The first Eggleston in Colonial history was Bagot, born 
1590; married in England Sarah Talcott, su]^posed to be a 
sister of the Worshipful John Talcott of Hartford. He 
was in Dorchester 1630, in Windsor 1635. He died there 
167-1. His son James was in the Pequot war. The fam- 
ily ititermarried into the Enos and Oleotts. Elilm's wife 
was Eliza])eth Olcott. He died 1803. :\[iss Oliva Eggles- 
ton Phelps Stokes of New York has eared for his stone. 



Appendix 1491 

Tlit' name Beaiieliamp was extinct here iu 1740, when 
.i, i.ii died, aged eighty-eight. He left descendants who 
•;.;jrricd Sheldons, Chenevards, Sigourueys and'Law- 
rnu'es. His wife Margaret died 1737. They are buried 
•11 tlio west of the ground— cared for by Miss Elizabeth 
■^■... !(lon of this city. 

Ih'zekiah Brainerd, son of Daniel and Hannah Spencer 
I'.rainerd, was a representative in the General Assembly, 
Speaker of the House and a member of the Senate. The 
I.t'LMslature gave him for services three hundred acres in 
< i oslien. He married Dorothy Hohert Mason, daughter of 
li.o Kev. Jeremiah Hohert of Haddam.. Hezekiah died 
while attending Legislature in Hartford 1727, aged forty- 
.-ix. Stone restored by Mr. John C. Sims of Philadelphia. 

< )f the AVadsworth family it is almost unnecessary to 
.^iH'ak. Hartford itself is their memorial. There is 
l;:inlly a benevolent, financial, or patriotic object which 
"ri.urinated in the times of the Colonial and early Ameri- 
rnn years in which their influence was not a leading fea- 
ture. Colonel Wadsworth's record in the Eevolutionary 
\Var is a part of history. Several of their monuments 
Were renovated by the family in recent years. The Rev. 
Daniel's and Abigail "Wadsworth's table was cared for 
when those of the clerg\-incn of the First Church were 
done. Dr. Gurdon Russell has assumed the renovation 
«'i' ^[rs. ^Millicent AVadsworth's, his grandmother. The 
Ijroken shaft at the entrance to the ground is being 
<-nred for by Mrs. H. B. Closson of Orange, N. J.; Miss 
.hilia W. Closson, AVashington; Mrs. Frederick N. Stau- 
K'y, New Britain. 

Two years ago members of the Beach family restored 
.'■everal family stones. This season they have done the 
remaining ones— Elizabeth Nabby and xVshbel Steel, and 
the large monument to ]\[rs. Whitman. 

Some \Tork has been done in each of the family groups. 
There is none where more money is needed, and in all 
familv interest is at work to raise it. 



1492 Appendix 

Southwest of the central shaft are memorials to fami- 
lies connected by marriage— Smiths, Strongs, Goodrich^ 
and Cottons. A large table commemorates Solomon and 
Anna Hyde Smith. By its side is an unusually tall head- 
stone to Solomon, Jr. Long ago this lost its face. When 
it came to be cared for the entire back was found standiu;j; 
against a thin shell— all that was left of the stone. Its 
complete restoration is very joleasing. To the west is a 
table to the two wives and son of the Rev. Nathan Strong, 
the predecessor of Dr. Hawes. The first Mrs. Strong was 
a daughter of Solomon Smith. Another daughter, ^Irs. 
Abigail Goodrich, wife of Chauncey, left no children. 
Mrs. Emily Goodrich Curtis has been instrumental in re- 
storing it. Mrs. Curtis has miniatures, portraits, and 
pieces of silver that belonged to the family. Chauncey 
Goodrich has no memorial. He was a man of influence. 
He graduated at Yale 1779, was in the State Legislature. 
mayor of the city, delegate to Hartford Convention 1S14, 
and in Congress six years, where he showed himself a 
man of ability. President Jefferson said of him, "That 
white-headed Yankee from Connecticut is the most diffi- 
cult man to deal with in the Senate." Solomon Smith 
was a deacon in the First Church. In 1S12 his son Reu- 
ben gave to the church in memory of his father a pulpit 
Bible. It had gold clasps and corners, valued at $100. 
In time these disappeared and were replaced by the 
church with silver ones. xVs the Bible is now used there 
is no metal ui)on it. ^h\ Eustace Smith of Peoria, III., a 
grandson and great-grandson of the Smiths, has restored 
the stones. He wrote many interesting details of his fam- 
ily and of a visit he made to the late James Hosmer when 
the settlers' shaft was new, but in that early day many 
stones had crumbled beyond recognition. To complete 
this grou}) without the assistance of the Chapter reiiuiri'S 
more*tlian one hundred dollars. 

The most remarkable piece of work done is the restora- 
tion of a headstone to Austin Ledyard. It lay upon tlie 



Appendix 1493 

ground in small pieces. Much of it returned to sand. 
the |)arts were j^icked up, placed upon a table and 
ijuitclied like a dissected map— the design of the carving 
]'.c\iOi\ out line by line and a sketch made of it. The cTif- 
fori'Ut juirts were joined and a new face wrought into it. 
A^ it stands now it seems impossible that it can have been 
!i:;ule from the wreck. It was quite expensive. 

Two brothers named Spencer lived in Cambridge until 
l(;;;7-l), when they removed to Hartford. They both 
M-rved in the early wars. William was a founder of the 
.\u('ient and Honorable Artillery of Boston. Later he 
\vas on the committee to revise the laws of Connecticut. 
11 is descendants were people of influence. The stones of 
< Mjadiah, 1741, and Abigail, 1725, have been cared for by 
a collateral relation. 

To Dr. Hoadly we give our thanks, not only for the use 
<'f his invaluable book of epitaphs, without which it would 
have been impossible to do the work; but for the many in- 
tf resting bits of local history with which his memoiy is 
stored. To ^Ir. Charles P. Cooley for much work on our 
lu'half, and to Mr. Horace Mather for genealogical infor- 
mation too involved for our solution.

declare Thy mighty acts:" He states that he will placv 
before them some incidents and facts connected with the 
history of the town and parish in which ''we have our 
location. ' ' 

"Before entering upon the subject it is proper that I 
"should notify you that the sources of accurate informa- 
tion respecting the early history of this town are very 
few, and there is much that would probably be of great 
interest to us which has transpired since its settlement 
is entirely lost. There are no town records to be fouiki 
anterior to the year 1708 and but one record of that date. 

"Respecting the original state of all that tract now in- 
cluded in the limits of Hebron, we suppose it was one 
dense and unbroken forest, in which roamed the beast and 
the wild and savag-e nations of the country. Relics of the 
Indians are still found occasionally in our fields. The 
original owner of this soil previous to any settlement of 
white inhabitants in this town was an Indian sachem by 
the name of Joshua. The first settlers received the hmd 
as Joshua Sachem legatees. The first settlement was 
commenced in the town of Hebron by men from Windsor, 
Saybrook, Northampton and Long Island in the year 
1704. No records can be found anterior to 1708 a part of 
this, and all that was made anterior being lost. 

"In December, 1700, it ap|iears that there was a town 
meeting, that Nathaniel Phelps was chosen town clerk, 
Stephen Post, Timothy Plielps and Samuel Palmer, 
selectmen ; and Edwin Sawyer was chosen constable. 



Appendix 1511 

**Tlie General Assembly of the State, on the petition of 
Strphen Post and others in behalf of the legatees of 
.l.-hiKi Sachem, incorporated the town of Hebron, but 
with limited privileges, in the year 17(D7. In the year 
17!<) the town petitioned the General Assembly for lib- 
erty to tax all the land in Hebron township for civil and 
rfligious use. The facts in the case seem to have been 
those: Joshua's legatees and his assigns claimed all the 
!;ind within the limits of the present tow^nship, except a 
piece at the north and south end, and these two tracts 
north and south of the town were claimed by Major John 
Mason and his assigns. Between these claimants fre- 
quent and grevious controversies arose respecting their 
lines and boundaries, and probably Mason's men refused 
to pay the taxes to Joshua's legatees, and this was the 
irround for the forementioned petition 'for liberty to tax 
all the land in the townshij).' 

"One of the first objects of the town after the settle- 
ment was commenced was that of establishing Gospel in- 
stitutions employing a minister and preparing them a 
])lace for the public worship of God; and we have a dis- 
tinct record as early as 1712 of the committee appointed 
by the town to procure a minister and agree upon his 
salary. 

"In 1714 a committee was appointed to agree upon a 
Itlace to build a meeting house. The people, however, 
were not united as to the location of the meeting house, 
and the consequence was some altercations and contro- 
versy among them. On this point it is proper to remind 
you that at this time (1714) Hebron, Gilead, Andover and 
Marlborough were all included in Hebron, and that all the 
F.i'clesiastical Societies' business as well as civil business, 
^vas transacted in town meeting— the society was the town 
—and I conclude every legal voter in town was also a 
voter witb respect to society matters. 

"We can easily see then that when the town had de- 
cided the previous question to build them a house of 



1^12 Appendix 

prayer, the other questiou, where the house should staiiM 
would give occasion for strife and division. In 171G tl . 
town applied to the General Assembly with reference t.. 
this question- where their meeting house should' stand 
_ ''The Assembly in those times held the power in re- 
ligious matters as well as civil, and stood in the relation 
of a sort of father to the churches, a thing, of course, tliat 
we at this day should regard as very singular and hi-lilv 
improper. * " 

. ''On the application of the town to the State Legisla- 
ture to decide for them where their meeting house shouKl 
stand, a committee was apointed who came out to Hebron, 
examined the ground, and finally pitched upon the place 
on Hebron Green for a meeting house, where still a meet- 
ing house was standing till within the last ten or twelve 
years. In 1715 Mr. John Bliss was employed as the first 
minister for the town and continued his labors to 1734. 
In 1716 the first meeting house was erected. In dimen- 
sions the house was 40 feet by 30 feet with 19 feet post. 
but though raised and covered the house was not com- 
pleted for several years, petitions being presented to tlie 
town meeting from time to time for liberty to build new 
pews in the galleries and finally over the gallery stairs. 
for want of room, as late as May, 1730. 

"It appears by records that Elizabeth Curtis, Sybil 
Post and five more ladies presented their humble peti- 
tion to the town meeting showing that 'the seats in the 
back part of the gallery are much shattered and broken 
so that it is very uncomfortable sitting there on the Sab- 
bath,' praying for liberty to build a pew for themselves, 
provided they shall take a suitable number to fill it, 'and 
if any shall leave the pew and sit somewhere else, it shall 
be kept full, so that there shall be no vacancy there and 
the house crowded somewhere else.' The petition was 
granted on the above conditions. 

_"^rhe society of Andover was incorporated in ^fay. 
1747, and from that time the society records in Hebron 



Appendix 1513 

v >T0 kopt separate from the town records. It became 
t,.^TSsary for want of room, either to build a new house of 
u.'fship or enlarge the old one. The latter course was 
lijially voted and timbers were drawn and prepared Co 
.ri large the old house. This was in 1747. In the night 
of October S, 1747, the old meeting house was set on fire 
hy an incendiaiy and burned down. Afterwards it was 

rnuiul to have been done by . He was prosecuted 

and committed to jail and afterwards sold to Samuel Gil- 
!>crt, Esq., in ser\'ice to pay damages and costs. 

"We come now to the date when the parish of Gilead 
was set off from Hebron and incorporated, ]May, 1748. 
The first record made is that of a society meeting June 
1."}, 1748. Capt. Joseith Phelps was chosen moderator; 
William Sumner, society clerk; Capt. Benoni Trumbull, 
Mr. Josiah Mack and Ensign Sam Gilbert, society's com- 
mittee; Mr. Ichabod Phelps, collector. 

'*In Sept., 1748, the vote was passed, with only one in 
\hv negative, to build a house for worship and somewhere 
hi'tween that date and May, 1749, the meeting house was 
framed and raised. 

''Rev. Elijah Lothrop was ordained and installed pas- 
tor April 1, 1752, and was pastor more than forty-five 
years, until his death, which occurred Aug. 3, 1797, ae. 72 
yrs., 8 mos., 15 days. On the grave stone is the follow- 
ing; 

'Behold our Reverend Sire assends 
Swift to the Helms of endless day 
Celestial Choirs his flight attend 
An Mark for him his glorious way.' 

"lie was connected in marriage with Silence Leonard 
(of Pa}Tiham, ^Lass.,) daughter of Zephaniah Leonard- 
She sun'ived her husband a little over two years until 
Oct. 15,-1799. On her tombstone we find this: 'She 
filled her sphere willi be<?omii)g dignity— tenderly nursed 
her numerous offs}u*ing— persevered to the end in the 
Christian faith and died in the hope of mi endless life. 



1514 Appendix 

'^Tliey had, I am told, eleven children, ten of whom 
were daughters. Tlie son was Elijah Leonard Lothrop, 
and his son, a grandson of Parson and Madame Lothro]>, 
was a minister of the Gospel, a man of more than ordi- 
nary talents. 

''The next pastor was Rev. Nathan Gilbert, who was 
ordained Nov. 13, 1799, and honorably dismissed l)y 
mutual consent Jany. 28, 1824. The next pastor was Rev. 
Charles Nichols, ordained Sept. 28, 1826. 

"The year 1830 will ever be remembered as an especi- 
ally distressing one: twenty deaths occurred that year; 
the mortality in the Ellis family was unusual and heart- 
rending—from Sept. 4tli to Oct. 20th, six were carried 
from the house to the grave. 

"The year 1838 will for a long time be a memoral)le 
year, as that in which we built and dedicated to the triune 
God this house of worship. 

"We are reminded daily that names which were once 
familiar here are now known no more in the place, for 
example our Polly comer, our Jagger lane, our x\sher 
lot, our Buell road, our Duuliam lane, and Sulton corner, 
our Townsend and Wilcox farms, but where are the per- 
sons to whom these places are entitled for their names? 
Gone ! 

"I pass to the subject of education. Facts justify me 
in saying that the i^eople of this parish have from the first 
shown a high regard for the education of their children. 
Several have taken their degrees at college : 

"Aaron Hutchinson grad. Yale, 1747; settled as a min- 
ister in Yt 

"Clement Sumner of Yale, 1742; settled in New Hamp- 
shire. His brother William died while in Yale College. 

"Benj. Trumbull, D. D., grad. Yale, 1759, settled in 
North Haven, Conn. ; a distinguished divine and author 
of History of Conn, and other valuable works. 

"John T. Peters, grad. Yale, 1789; one of the judges 
of this State; was a native of Gilead. 



Appendix " 1515 

"lion. Sylvester Gilbert, grad. Dartmouth, 1775; was 
. r. ti'd to the General Court before he was twenty-five 
■. oars of age and was chosen thirty times to represent the 
lowu in the legislature^ at that time meeting twice a year. 

"Prince Bryant Hall, grad. Yale, 1769; became a mer- 
rhunt in Vt., and John Hall, his uncle, grad. 1769, and be- 
came a minister. 

"Daniel Bishop Brown, grad. Yale, 1800; Elijah L. 
Lotlirop, 1787; Henry Brown in 1808; Charles Cham- 
pion Gilbert in 1817; Edwin Randolph Gilbert in 1829. 

"Carter Hutchinson, Brown University; James Way, 
Washington College, and many others have been fitted 
for the learned professions, among the number Absalom 
JV'ters, John Dunham, John S. Peters, Alfred Townsend, 
Augustus Brown, Ephraim Brown, Ira Hutchinson, 
Fletcher Sumner and Tudor Sumner. All obtained a lib- 
eral education and few probably have at any time been 
found in this place who could not both read and write. 

''Great changes have occurred since the settlement of 
the town— the sjjelling of names has changed in some in- 
stances. Rollo was spelled originally Raleigh; also Row- 
ley, now Rollo. Horton was spelled Houghton and Her- 
ton, Gilbert spelled Gilbard, Leothrop also Lathrop. 

"Fashions with respect to dress and equipjig-e have 
undergone many changes. The day has gone by for 
ladies to appear in the house of God in linen short gowns 
of their own manufacture as did our good grandmothers. 
We do not see now a man and his wife riding the same 
horse to meeting— the wife upon the pillion, and main- 
taining her balance by means of her right arm thrown 
around her husband. The minister does not now as 
formerly appear with his small clothes, buckles large 
white wig, and cocked hat, those emblems of dignity have 
passed away before the improvements of the age, as dark- 
ness IjcTore the rising sun. The style of building is 
cliaiiged, also the niauner of cultivating the soil.

It was stated that he married Elizabeth Carver, dan. 
of Gov. Carver, but since the discovery of Gov. PijkI- 
ford's history it has been found that he married soon 
after his arrival Elizabeth Tillie, dau of John Tillie an-l 
an only child. John Howland was an assistant of the 
Governor 1633-4-5, and was a prominent man in the col- 
ony, ''a godly man and an ancient p>rofessor in Hi*' 
wa>-s of Christ, and i)r()V(Ml a useful insti-uinent of gtxtd 
in his place." An incident on the Mayflower:

ford of Hadlyme overlooking the valley of the Connec- 
ticut where have dwelt for many generations the Hunger- 
ford descendants of their English ancestors, Lord AVal- 
U'v and Lady Hungerford of Wiltshire, England. Their 
"twin-tombs" with brass effigies can be seen today in 
the Salisbury Cathedral. A brotlier, Lord Robert, re- 
poses in the same cathedral to which he had added what 
was known as the Hungerford Chapel, with the family 
coat-of-arms and "Knight of the Garter," inscription, 
in relief upon the walls. Later we find them as builders 
of Hungerford Sijuare, now Ti-afalgar, and a bridge of 
tlie same name spanned the Thames. From "London 
Tinvn" to "New London Town," in Connecticut and pari 
"f the grounds of Fort Trumlmll of today were in the

For generations the town of East Ifaddani has Wu-v 

the home of the Ilungerfords, since the first of the ii-i„ , 
crossed the sea in 1(540. In the early days, after secunn- 
^laud grants in Hai'tford, they drifted southward to l\-. 
qiiot, now New London, and the present Fort Truni})ul! 
site was included in a timber reservation of the Hunirer- 
fords. ■ ^ 

The Hungerfords were among tlie first settlers of II.-ul- 
dam and Lyme, from which comes the twin combination, 
''Had-lyme," as applied to this village. In Revohition- 
ary times, Captain Zac Hungerford was in command of 
both Fort Trumbull and Fort Griswold. 

Thomas Hungerford moved f]-om Xew Loudon wit!i 
his family to Hadlyme as early as 1G92. He was a black- 
smith and in consideration of his trade the society of Ea>t 
Haddam gave him a section of land and he was the first 
selectman of the town of East Haddam.

The following was taken from a little pamphlet, pub- 
lished in 1871, entitled "Joseph Ingham and his descend- 
ants, 1639-1871." 

"In the same ship with Col. Fcnwick and the 'Guilford 
Company' came the Eev'd Henry Whitfield, their first 
pastor and teacher, Francis Bushnell the elder, Francis 
liu>hnell the younger, his dan. Sarali and Joseph Ingham 
In (luilford, June 1, 1639, the name of Joseph Ingham 
a]>])ears third on the plantation covenant of Guilford. 
(77(/.s' la.<:t statement is ineorrect.) Francis Bushnell the 
I'lder, who was the common father of the Buslmells in 
tiiis country, died in Guilford, in 1646. Deacon Francis 
I'ushnell, his dau. Sarah, and Joseph Ingham removed to 
Saybrook in 1648, where Deacon Bushnell, who was a 
JMiTior, built the first mill in that town, afterward called 
.Inncs ^[ill. He d. in Saybrook Dec. 4, 1681."

-..N' of Xew York, and in politics liis fame is national, 
.1 I'lidvr in the councils of the Democvcitic party. 
i Mr. Mack was born July 24, 1857, and is in the full flush 
- , f \ irile and vigorous manhood. He estal)lished the Buf- 
■.) Sniiddij Times in 1S79. The paper had for some time 
. ..,;. u[ thill struggle. The Buffalo public was not educated 
t v.i* to Xorman E. ]\[ack's idea of calling a spade a s})ade 
I .:;r.d of lianding men and measures without gloves. They 
I ...on found out, however, that the Sunday Times was just 
I tlM» paper that they were looking for and that the only 
I Linll that it had was that it only came to them once in a 
I ur-rk. which seemed like once in a lifetime. This fault 
I was i-emedied in 1883, when the Buffalo Evening Times 
^ nivt saw the light. 

I From its initial number the daily gained in circulation 
::!;«! influence and was soon recognized as the organ of 
ii;.' Democratic party in AVestern Xew York. 

it was then that Mr. Mack commenced to devote to poli- 
tirs all the time he could spare from the demands of the 
; ; apor u]ion his every hour, and to shaping out for himself 
;; i)olitical career. He has now been active in politics for 
"v,'r fifteen years, and has been the leader of his party in 
\V.'si(un New York for the past five. He was a mem- 
i »T of the Democratic State Committee for a number of 
y«';n-s and was chosen delegate to the National Conven- 
tion ill 189G and 1900. He was elected a member of the

May 19.— Miss F. Elizabeth Mack, daughter of ]\Ir. and 
M rs. Daniel W. Mack, returned to her home last Saturday 
from Boston, where she has been taking a full course of 
studies at the Emerson School of Oratory, her graduation 
taking place May 8. ^liss Mack graduated with the high- 
est honors of her class. In the comedy, "The Love 
Chase," given by several students of the school. Miss 
yUick took the part of "Widow Green." Boston papers 
spoke in very high terms of her acting. The Boston Jour- 
nal has this to say of her: "Probably no better piece of 
a<ting M-as ever seen off the professional stage than that 
of Miss Mack, in the character of 'Widow Green.' The 
careful study of the part was obvious and the si)ontaneity 
of the many comedy passages demonstrated a degree of 
talent likely to make itself known in more ambitious at- 
t«'mi)ts in the future." The Globe has this to say of ^liss 
Mack: "]^[iss Mack as 'Widow Green' scored one of the 
biggest hits of the day, her acting being superb." :Miss 
Mack enjoys a large circle of friends in AVindsor and 
Hartford, Tvho will be pleased to learn of her success.

Tlu'i-e are few of the early Xew England families 
rrore ditficult to trace and distinguish between than 
li.use of the Martins, and especially of the John Martins. 
At an early period there were in Massachusetts at least 
v;x distinct persons bearing this latter name, viz: John 
.'f Swansea, John of Pehohoth, John of Chelmsford, John 
..f Marblehead, John of Boston and John of Charlestown. 
Ifaving spent considerable time in looking up the family 
■ f the latter, the results may be of interest to others. 

.lolm Martin settled in Charlestown, 1635. He was prob- 
:il.ly a son of Richard, who died in Otter}', St. Mary, 
iH'Von. England, 1633, and a brother of Abraham, Kobert 
:.!ui Richard Martin of Rehoboth, and of Elizabeth Up- 
liain of Maiden. He was a ship carpenter, and with his 
wife Rebecca was admitted to the Charlestown Church, 
li;;;i). His second wife Sarah, after his decease, married 
llandall Foster 1665. His children by first wife were: 
Sai-ah, bapt. 1639; Mary, bapt. 1641; John, bapt. 1642, 
and Mehitabel, bapt. 1643. He had land set off to him 
in Maiden 1638. In 1650 he sells land in Maiden to 
•luhn Greenleaf, and his wife Sarah releases dower. 

John (2) Martin (John 1) bapt. 1642; married April 
11, 1671, Mary Mudge, daughter of Thomas and Mary 
Mndge of Maiden. He aftei-wards lived in Swansea, Bris- 
tol, R. I., and Lebanon, Conn. He was a soldier in Cap- 
tain Samuel Moseley's company in King Phillip's War, 
1675; also under Captain John Cutter, 1676. He was ad- 
mitted with his wife Mary to the Congregational Church 
in Bristol, R. L, 1695. He purchased land in Lebanon, 
Conn., 1711. His will was proved in New London, June 
T.'. 1719. His children as recorded in r.ristol were: 
Marv, b. April 19, 1674, in Maiden; Tiiomas, b. June 8, 
1675, in Maiden; John, b. Sept. 14, 1679, in Maiden; Abi-

John (3) ]\rariin (John 2, John 1), married about 17'>1 
Hannah Darling or Hannah Pierce. In the Rehoboth lUr 
ords api)ears the marriage of John Mailin and Hanna!! 
Darling, Dec. 25, 1701. The residence of tlie groom decs 
not appear, but I can find no other John who is the prol)- 
able })erson. In the "Pierce Genealogy" appears tin- 
record, Hannah Peirse, born at "Warwick, R. I., ]C»mi 
(Ephraini 2, Michael 1), married John Martin (John). 
T find no record of this Hannah in Warwick, and am un- 
able to determine which of the two names is correct. Tlw 
children of John and Hannah Martin, born in Bristol, II. 
I.., were : John, b. May 14, 1703 ; Mary, b. Jany. 7, 1704-.';. 
and Thomas, b. Aug. IS, 170G. The latter probably mai-- 
ried Dec. 3, 1727, Ann jNIunroe of Bristol. John (3) ^tar- 
tin died before his father. His son Thomas was bapt. in 
1711, and the record states his father was dead. His 
w^idow Hannah married Abraham Crane of Swansea, Mar. 
27, 1719. 

John (4) Martin (John 3, John 2, John 1), cordwainer. 
removed to Attleboro and married Feb. 9, 1726-7, Experi- 
ence, the widow of Henry Rew of Dighton. She was a 
daughter of W^illiam and Experi-ence (King) Pratt ol' 
Noi-ton, i)reviously of Weymouth. She was born A))i-il 3, 
1703, and admitted to the Norton Church in 1724. The 
children of John (4) and Experience Martin, as reconU-tl 
in Attleboro, were : Mary, b. May 27, 1730; Sarah, b. July 
17, 1733, and Anne, b. May 2, 173(3. Perhajis there were 
others. I am unable to place a John Martin, Jr., of Nor-

THE MIDDLEFIELI) CHURCH. 



The sun rose high on that fair June day, 
And kissed the hills where the old town lay; 
It lingered o 'er the farm and homestead dear, 
But its briglitness met no answering cheer. 
Sad vrere our hearts and tearful our eyes, 
For the crown of our hilltop ruined lies. 

Gone in a night, by the lightning's stroke, 

Was our fair white church, when morning broke. 

The storms of a hundred years and more 

Beat it and racked it from vane to floor; 

The moi-ning sun and the sun of night, 

Had bathed its spire with rosy light. 

But silent now is the solemn bell 

That fell with the church it served so well. 

Churcli of our fathers, founded on rock. 
Built by a God-fearing, sturdy stock,— 
Church of our childhood's happy days. 
Home of faith, and prayer, and praise,— 
We mourn thee now as we mourn a friend. 
Honored and reverenced till life's end. 
June IS, 1900. Carolyn E. Churcli

Yale's Oldest Graduate. 

The oldest living graduate of Yale College is Rev. Sam- 
uel Bissell, of Twinsburg, a small village near Akron, 0. 
I\ov. Bissell is in his 99th year, but enjoys comparatively 
good health and vvill doubtless reach the century mark. 
Although it is more than three score years since he gradu- 
ated from that institution of learning, Rev. Bissell is 
still its loyal friend and delights to hear of the success of 
Yale students in sports or studies. 

Rev. Bissell was born in ^liddiefield, Mass., in 1797. 
lie went with his father's family to Ohio in 1806, and 
attended school at intervals and helped his father to make 
a lionie in the forests. In 181 G, determining on a better 
education, he made his way on foot and alone to Yale Col- 
lege. There, with but a few dollars on which to com- 
mence his college life, he completed the full course, with 
no aid save his own head and hands. He graduated with 
honor in 1823. Soon after returning to his home he took 
••barge of the Congregational Church at Twinsburg, and, 
vxcept for a few years spent as pastor of other near-by 
••liarges, Twinsburg has since b'een his home. His aged 
^vife. is still living.

At the time of his death he was President of Parke, 
Davis & Co., a firm well known throughout the United 
States as reliable manufacturing chemists. 

Hervey C. Parke attended a private school at Bloom- 
field, which was presided over by the late J. D. Standish, 
of this city, and Judge A. C. Baldwin, of Pontiac, respec- 
tively. "When 16 years old young Parke was sent to Buf- 
falo, X. Y., by his parents, where he attended High school 
for a year, after which he entered the employ of an up- 
holsterer named Garrett V. Mooney, with whom he re- 
mained for a couple of years. 

In IS-IC Mr. Parke returned to Michigan and for a few 
months taught in the school at West Bloomfield. Then he 
engage<:l as a clerk in the hardware store of George L. 
Bidwell, at Adrian, and held that position until late in 
184S, when he became a clerk in the store of W. M. Mc- 
Connell at Pontiac, where he remained until 1850. Then, 
his health failing him, he accepted a position with a min- 
ing company at Eagle Piver, Lake Superior. The climate 
agreeing with him, he remained in that section of the 
State uiitil 1S65. During that year he removed to Detroit, 
where he has ]-esided evei- since. 

In 18()G >[r..]^irke bought out the interest of the junior 
partner in the firm of Duffield & Conaiit, manufacturing 



Appendix 1685 

cliemists, whose establislimont was located on Sibley 
street between Cli-fford and Cass streets. The concern 
was operated under the firm name of Duffield, Parke & 
Co. — Samuel P. Duffield, M. D., now of Dearborn, Mich., ■ 
lieing the senior partner— until, in 1870, the interest of 
Or. Duffield, having been purchased by George S. Davis, 
John E. Grout and William H. Stevens united with Mr. 
Parke in the organization of a new partnership and the 
firm of Parke, Davis & Co. came into existence. 

Five years later the partnership was incoi'porated as a 
company, with a paid up capital of $100,000, and with the 
following officers: Hervey C. Parke, president; Geo. S. 
Davis, vice-president and general manager; H. A. Wet- 
zel, secretary and treasurer. Later the capital was in- 
creased to $1,200,000. ^[r. Parke remained as president 
of the company up to the time of his death, the other offi- 
cers at present being D. C. Whitney, vice-X)resideut ; IL A. 
Wetzel, secretary ; J. H. Smedley, treasurer, and Wm. M. 
Warren, general manager. 

Mr. Parke had a superior personality, being tall, well 
proportioned, dignified and courteous and socially he was 
rational and companionable. In his charitable acts he was 
very liberal and unostentatious, while as a citizen he was 
public spirited, generous and enterprising. In politics he 
was a Republican, but submitted to no strict party dic- 
tion. In brief, he was a broad-minded, loyal citizen of 
exceptional ability, and sterling rectitude, a townsman 
the city can ill afford to lose and a friend whose depar- 
ture will be mourned in many homes, among the poor as 
well as among the wealthy. 

The following from a Detriot paper: 

Hervey C. Parke, of this city, whose death at his winter 
home in Southern California was announced yesterday, 
was a native of ^Michigan who did not find it necessary 
to go beyo»d the borders of the State to achieve a notable 
business success. ]\rK'higan and Detroit are honored by 
the record of this worthy pioneer, who passed through

youth and of diligent and aspiring after years in buildin- 
up a conspicuously substantial commercial careei-. Thr 
institution of which he became the head after a series (.f 
business connections and enterprises in different i»ait> 
of the State is one of the most widely knowu enterprises 
of Detroit, and a conspicuous example of widening oper- 
ations and prestige. Along with all of his activities in the 
business field, Mr. Parke was a devoted and influential 
churchman of the Protestant Episcopal faith, his heli)rul 
participation in the work of St. John's church having 
been long and deeply valued. His benevolences, however, 
were not bounded by denominational lines. His desire 
to distribute a portion of the fruits of his splendid business 
success for the good of humanity found expression in 
various charities.

Of other Matthew Smiths there was one by that name

my father, the oldest child, was eight years old. 

These uncles of father's carried away with them all 
documents relating to the famih', so father had only his 
remembrance of some things to go upon. 

My father was such a good man, a preacher of God's 
word, and a man of some ability, but he was a frail man 
for some years before he died in ISGl, aged 57 years.

Appendix 1731 

From Hartford Courant. 
July 27, 1900. 

To the Editor of The Courant: 

The old building on the corner of Main and Talcott 
streets, so soon to be demolished, has a history dating 
nnich further back than the period mentioned in the ar- 
ticle which appeared in ''The Courant" a short time since. 
The structure stands on land which belonged to the Tal- 
cott family from the time of the settlement of Hartford, 
and it is known that the house was built by Govenaor 
Joseph Talcott about 1725, on the site of the old house 
built for his grandfather, John Talcott, in 1635, and that 
some of the timbers used in the old structure were incor- 
porated into this one. Lieutenant-Colonel John Talcott 
says in his "memorandum book": 

' ' The kitchen that now stands on the north side of the 
house I live in was the first house that my father built in 
Hartford in Connecticut colony, and was done by Nicholas 
Clark the first winter that any Englishman rought or 
built in Hartford, which was the year 1635. My father 
and mother and his family came to Hartford in the year 
1636 and lived first in said kitchen which was first on the 
west side of the chimney. The east side of this house that 
we live in, and was my father Talcott 's, deceased, was built 
with the porch that is, in 1638, and the chinmevs were 
built in 163S. The great barn was built in the year 1636 
and underi>iuned in 1637, and was the first bara that was 
raised in the colony." 

Lieutenant-Colonel John was father of Governor Jos- 
eph Talcott, who was bona in 1669, held many offices in 
the town and colony, and finally that of Governor, from 
1725 until his death in 1741. His son, Colonel Samuel 
Talcott, ijiherited the ])roi)erty and lived in the house 
until he built, about 1770. a new one on the o]^posite side 
of the street, pulled down alunit two years ago. Colonel 
Samuel's daughter, Mary, was the wife of James Watson, 
naval officer of the port of New York, member of Con- 



1732 Appendix 

gress and Senator from tlie State of Xew York. This 
couple, in ISOO, sold the i)roi)erty to the Rev. Joseph 
Steward, and with her the phice passed out of the Taleott 
name, after an occupancy of 165 years. The street laid 
out' through their land still perpetuates the memory of 
their ownership. 

The Rev. Mr. Steward, then of Upton, ]N[ass., married 
March 31, 1789, Sarah, daughter of the Rev. Samuel Mose- 
ley of Hampton, Conn., and after 1800 he appears to have 
retired from all active ministerial duties. He was by 
way of being an artist and painted portraits, and appar- 
ently possessed tastes not f recjuently cultivated by clergy- 
men of that day. Tlie museum was probably one result 
of these tastes, and I have heard descriptions of it from 
old peoi)le. One was as follows: 

"In the south half of the second story was located the 
original Hartford museum. There were many curiosities 
in the collection. Among them was a Imge East Indian 
tiger's head, said to have been brought from East India 
by Captain AVilliam Ely. There were wax figures in one 
corner. One figure was that of an Indian in the act of 
scalping children. It was horrible. There were peep- 
holes through which rnctures of a variety of subjects were 
visible. This museum was removed after the death Of 
I\Irs. Steward (who had continued the show after the 
death of her hus1)and) to a building in Central Row, the 
second story of the block fronting the City Hall, built by 
Henry L.Ellsworth." 

From such descriptions as we have of this it must have 
been enlarged very much beyond the Steward collection, 
as it contained many stuffed animals, implements of war 
from all paits of the world, a model of a French guillo- 
tine, wax figures of Indians and Xew Zealanders, etc., etc. 

After Airs. Steward's death her pro])erty was inherited 
by hei- lieirs, tlu^ ]\[oseley family, and therefore this piece 
of ground has lieen owned by only two families, the Tal- 
ootts and the ^loseleys, sinc^e Hartford Avas settled, l2(i5 
years aijo. M. K. T.

proprietor of houses and lands in the town. After the

I ticut River he sold all his possessions May, 1636, to Nich- 
olas Danforth, and started the next month and went on

prietv of a war with the Pequot Indians, and upon whose 
recommendation a war was accordingly declared 

The year previous to his removal to Hartford he sent 
a carpenter, Nicholas Clark, to build him a house. (It 
stood on the ground near or what is now Talcott street.)

home on Henry avenue, after an illness of several niontli<. 
Dea. Francis had a shock the latter part of Septemhci-. 
and never rallied from its effect, but was able to con ■ 

verse with his relatives and friends up to about a | 

■week before his death. Before his last illness he wiL< ) 

quite vigorous for a man of his years and his mental fac- 
ulties were unimpaired. Dea. Francis was one of the old- 
est members of the First Baptist church, and had been 
a deacon for -12 years. He enjoyed the esteem and friend- 
ship of the whole community, won by uprightness of con- 
duct, kindliness of heart and uniform courtesy of manner. 
He was specially endeared to the First Baptist church, of 
which he had been a zealous and consistent member, and 
a faithful and efficient ofScer. 

Almiron D. Francis w^as born in Pittsfield May 11, 1S07, 
son of Dea. Daniel H. and Mahala (Chapman) Francis, 
one of the first settlers of Wethersfield, Ct. At an early 
age he attended the district school and resided on the 
farm until his ISth year, when he began to work at the 
carpenter's trade. In 1852 he gave that up and entered 
the machine shop of a Mr. Dodge, and remained there 
three years, and then formed a ]>artnership with his for- 
mer employer under the fii'm name of Dodge & Francis. 
Subsequently the firm bought out Gordon McKay, the 
famous sewing machine manufacturer, and carried on 
the business for about three years at the location of 
the E. D. Jones t^ Sons Company's plant. Mr. Dodge 
later sold his interest to David Clarey and the new firm 
of Francis »S: Clarey thus fonned was for many years the 
only concern in Western Massachusetts manufacturing 
engines and printing presses. Mr. Francis eventually 
sold his interest to ^Mayor-elect H. S. Russell, who was in 
turn succeeded by the E.D. G.Jones Company, ^fr. Fran- 
cis was for many years a prominent stockholder in the 
Pittsfidd National Bank, luit he steadily declined all pub- 
lic oflice, allhougli rept-ntedly urged to run for selectman.

Whale I/. 

Helen Jerusha ^Mialey, dau. of Alexander Whaley, Jr., 
m. John W. Mack (which see), and there is a book enti- 
tled ' ' The AAOialey Record. ' ' 

This is the title of a volume by Kev. Samuel Whaley of 
Riverhead, N. Y. A general outline of this record may 
be of interest to those of his family in various parts of 
this country, and to others interested in biography. "No 
man of well regulated mind," says Cobden, ''can feel an 
inditm^ence res])ecting the genealogy of his family." 
The genealogy of this family has been remarkably well 
preserved. Mr. John Nichols, F. S. A., in his "Antiqui- 
ties of Leicester Countj^, England, ' ' has given, in a lineal 
design, the successive generations of this family down to 
the Commonwealth— a period of six hundred years. All 
English records make the founder of this family, Wyama- 
rus AVhaley, who came over with William the Conqueror, 
the Duke of Noriiuindy, who invaded and conquered Eng- 
land in the year one thousand sixty-six. In the decisive 
battle t)f Hastings he so distinguished himself that Wil- 
liam, in the setllement of the kingdom, honored him with 
the Lordship of Whaley in the Wapentake of Blackburn, 



Appendix 1753 

iu the County of Lancaster. From liim all the English 
families of his name claim descent. The records show 
that a slight change was common in the spelling of this 
name. Some used one 'M," others two. The latter is 
suj^posed to have been the original spelling. The varia- 
tion was, however, so freqnent on public records and mon- 
uments, and so often applied to the same jjerson, it seems 
to have been a matter of indifference. 

From the original Wyamarus Whaley to the days of the 
regicides, twelve generations are given. The law of 
primogeniture, brought from the Continent by William 
the Concjueror, was made the general law of England. 
By this law the eldest of each generation was recorded 
in the Heraldry Office, and the family coat of arms was 
transferred to him. He became the legal representative 
of tlie family and the estate. Through him the lineage 
was transmitted. This volume has a valuable outline his- 
tory of Heraldry, from which we copy the following : 

''Among the innumerable bearing or emblems used on 
the ' Coat of Arms ' in this family the whale predominates. 
Many other animals and emblems were adopted by per- 
sons of this name. But the largest number have the 
whale on their family Coat of Arms. The origin of this 
cannot be from the resemblance of the name. Nor did 
the name originate from the animal. Long before a Coat of 
^Arms was devised the family name was prominent in Eng- 
land. The sentiment of some of the mottoes attached to 
Coats of Arms belonging to this family affords conclusive 
evidence that the whale became an emblem for the same 
reason that the lion has long held a like i)lace in the armo- 
rial bearings of the English crown. One is the strongest 
of all animals that inhabit the land: the other the strong- 
est of all that inhabit the world of waters." 

The family became numerous and hekl high and hon- 
ored positions. Their names are found as otlii^ers in the 
army, ]\Iembers of Pai'liament, and holding various })re- 
ferments in the civil, religious and literary world. 



1754 Appendix 

Nichols, in his *'xVntiquities," says of Rev. John Whak-y, 
D. D., that he was ** Master of Peter House, Cambridge." 
and "Eegius Professor of Diviuit}'." This prof-esxM- 
ship in Cambridge University "was the richest in 
Europe. ' ' In this honored position he succeeded the cele- 
brated Rev. Richard Bentley, D. D., who was said to })o 
the "best scholar England ever produced." On the 
death of Dr. Bentley in 1742, the Rev. John AXOialey, D. 
D., was elected to this liigh preferment in the University. 
He held this chair with honor till his death in 17-48. Of 
his three sons— John A\Tialey became an ofRcer in the 
army; Thomas Sedgwick AVhaley, D. D., was • distin- 
guished for his scholarship, and was rector at Bath; 
Richard "\Mialey, the youngest, having studied at Rome, 
became a historical painter. 

At the opening of the Civil War most of this large fam- 
ily remained loyal to the king. Edward, the regicide, was 
the son of Richard AVhaley, of the eleventh generation in 
the jtedigree of the family, who is spoken of as a man of 
"munificence and energy." His mother was the daugh- 
ter of Sir Henry Cromwell. He was, therefore, inti- 
mately connected with the Cromwell family. In the con- 
flict between Charles the First and the Parliament, ho 
took up arms in defense of the liberty of the subject. He 
distinguished himself in many battles and sieges, es- 
pecially in the hottest contest when the king led his own 
forces in person, and finally fled the field for safety. 

For this valor and skill in routing such superior num- 
bers he was promoted and received the thanks of Parlia- 
ment. On this occasion he gave origin to that noted ex- 
pression which has since been the watchword of freedom. 
"Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." 

Dr. Leonard Bacon says in his introduction to "The 
Three Judges," by J. P. Warren: 

"Cofonel Whaley was a Puritan of the Puritans, of de- 
vout piety and unimpeachable integrity. An intimate 
friendship existed between him and his chaplain, Rev. 



Appendix , 1755 

Ixirhard Baxter. It continued after lie became one of the 
I'liief officers of the Commonwealth. Baxter, who wrote 
many books, dedicated one of his works to him in an epis- 
tle which is one of the most beautiful examples of such' 
composition." 

On the restoration of the Monarchy, he, with his son- 
in-law, Col. Wm. Goff, fled from the wrath of Charles the 
Second and found a refuge in this country. Here he 
spent fourteen years ehiding the king's pursuers. On 
the death of his son-in-law, about 1C74, he drops out of 
history. Nothing authentic has been heard of him in New 
England. 

The question of his subsequent life was thoroughly dis- 
cussed not long ago in a pamphlet by Robert P. Robins of 
Maryland, who claims to have descended from the rigi- 
cide, Edward Whaley. The pamphlet is of such weight 
as evidence on this question that it is inserted in the 
"Whaley Record." It was also fully discussed at the 
time in the "Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Bi- 
ograjihy. ' ' ]\Ir. Robins ' strongest evidence is from a doc- 
ument writen by Thomas Robins of Worcester County, 
Eastern Shore of Maryland, in the year 1769. 

It appears that Edward Whaley, the regicide, left :^[as- 
sachusetts on the death of his son-in-law and went to Vir- 
ginia. Here some of his children met him. But for 
greater safety he settled in ]\[aryland. There are many 
I^ersons well known in the States of Delaware, Virginia and 
South Carolina who call themselves his descendants. A 
will from the records of "Worcester County, ^Maryland, is 
given, which Mr. Robins claims to be that of Edward 
Whaley, the regicide, dated June IS, 1718. Families bear- 
ing this name have been found in about fifteen different 
States. They have no knowledge of each other. They 
have come from different parts of Great Britain and set- 
tled in widely separated sections of this land. The writer 
of the "Record," from which litis abstiact is taken, is de- 
scended from the Plymouth Branch, so called })ecause of 



1756 Appendix 

its first family landing at PhTiiouth, Mass., in 1722. Ti 
consisted -of the parents and six sons. AViien at Plym 
onth the third son enlisted in the expedition of tiie Col- 
ony Troops to Cape Breton for the capture of Louisburg 
in 1745. The French had made it the strongest fortres> 
in America. After fifty days' siege the troops entered 
the gates in triumph. It awakened rejoicings, and bon- 
fires were lighted all over New England and in Xew York 
and Philadelphia. But he gave his life in this conflict. 

Two of the sons settled in New York and vicinity, and 
one in Fairfield, Conn.; the other two in North Parish, 
New Fondon, Conn, It was afterward made the town of 
]Montville, Conn. This family were from the North of 
Ireland. They had been educated in the Scotch-Irish 
Presbyterian^ Church, and were, of course, tenacious of 
their views of doctrine. An able preacher of this church 
was then pastor at North. Parish. The attraction of the 
family to him as a fellow-countr^-man of like faith was 
such that the eldest and youngest sons of the family, 
together with their mother, left Plymouth and settled in 
his parish. 

In the War of the E evolution their sons were in the 
vigor of life. Three of them were in the Continental 
ai'my. Of these one was in the battle when New Loudon 
was taken m\d burned. Some of the grandchildren of the 
original settlers emigrated to Oneida County, N. Y., in 
1802, where their children grew to mature years and have 
found homes in various i)arts of this country. This 
Record brings down the history of the family so far as 
possible to the present day.

"In the 78th year of his age, but with judgment un- 
clouded and his usefulness unimpaired, the venerable 
Ilon-y Wolcott, one of the chief magistrates and advisers 
of the Colony, quickly followed his friend and comrade 
(Gov. Haynes) to the grave. Henry AVolcott, Esquire, 
the ancestor of all the Wolcotts of this Stale, was of a veiy 
ancient family and the owner of a large estate in Somer- 
setshire (Eng.), born 1578, son and heir of John Wolcott 
of Golden :N[anor. In 1628 came to America to examine 
the country. Came a settler in 1630, died at Windsor, 
Conn., 1655. His monument of red sandstone, built by 
the- same hands that fashioned the Fenwic^ Tomb of Say- 
brook, has been always a shrine, to tempt toward it the 
feet of Ins numerous descendants, who have piously 
guarded it and lovingly adorned it for two hundred 
years. ' '
