PREFACE. 

T T was a sad parting from the old home, when our forefathers 
fcj cast loose from the English shore, and set sail for the land 
V across the seas, to carve out their fortunes in the New World; in 

many, many instances never again to hear a word of intelligence 

1 from the dear ones left behind. 

^ After a generation or two, is it any wonder that family histo- 

§ ries and old traditions were forgotten ? I use the word ' ' carve ' ' 
advisedly: when the "Martin boys," after walking two hundred 
and fifty miles from Woodbury, Ct., with gun and axe, and each 
carrying a pack, arrived in the dense hardwood forest, where the 
town of Peacham is now situated, their first business was to cut 
down a few of the smaller trees and make a *' lean to," covered 
with brush, to protect them.selves from the weather; a fire was 
built, and kept burning all night, to keep off the wild beasts; 
sometimes the fire was extinguished, and, while one slept, the 
other kept watch with the old flint lock, for possible prowling 

Indians. 

Soon a "shanty" followed the "lean to," then all set to 
work, with a hearty good will, to make their first clearing. 
When supplies were needed, one of their number would follow 
the mountain brook to the river, and down its bank to the nearest 
settlement, twenty miles away. Thus they worked until the cold 
weather came, then they concealed their worldly belongings in 
the ground, and walked home to Woodbury, where they spent 

the winter. 

In the early spring, they came back again, with all the sup- 
plies and seed they could carry. They planted potatoes and corn

in due season, and enlarged their clearing. This performance 
was repeated, year after year, until the clearing was large enough 
to raise sufficient provisions to make them comparatively inde- 
pendent; after which the entire family came and made this their 
permanent residence. 

In the busy pioneer life, few records were kept; old letters 
and papers were relegated to the attic, and abandoned to the 
mice. 

A generation or two ago, young people who showed too 
great an interest in their ancestors were apt to be snubbed. The 
present generation, I am glad to see, is taking a deeper interest 
in genealog}^ 

For many years, we have been collecting data relating to the 
forbears of my wife (a Peacham Martin) and to my own ances- 
tors. As there is but one living of my father and mother's 
generation, and only a few, scattered here and there, of the con- 
temporaries of my wife's parents, it seems we started none too 
soon to collect and preserve for our children a brief history of 
their progenitors. 

It was my original intention to follow the line of Capt. Ashbel 
Martin, of Peacham, Vt., only; but, in my researches, I have 
discovered descendants of his brothers, sisters and uncles; and 
it affords me pleasure to include them in this history. 

Several years ago, I obtained a fund of information from Capt. 
(Uncle Leonard) Martin, of Dixville, then in his 96th year, hale 
and hearty; unfortunately, however, he possessed very few dates. 

I am indebted for much information and data to Miss Abbie 
Mellen Chamberlain, of Cambridge, Mass.; to Miss Jane K. 
Cowles (a Vermont Martin), of Plymouth, Mass.; and to Mr. 
Frederick Arthur Chase, of Lowell, Mass. Besides personal in- 
formation obtained from heads of families, records from family 
bibles, letters brought to light from the "old hair trunk" in the 
garret, and inscriptions from various tombstones, authorities for 
this work are in part from the public records of Loudon, N. H.; 
Chelsea, Hopkintcn, Pladley, Northampton and Northfield,

MARTIN. 

KARIvlKST RECORD OF THE SURNAME. 

Saint Martin, Bishop of Tours, was born in Pannonia, 
about the year A. D. 316. He was educated at Pavia; entered 
the army; first, under Constantine, and afterwards under Julian, 
the Apostate. On obtaining his discharge, he became a disciple 
of Hilary, Bishop of Poitiers. He then returned to his native 
Pannonia, and converted his mother to Christianity; enduring, as 
a consequence, much persecution from the Arian party, at that 
time dominant. 

In 360, he founded a convent. In 371, he was ordained 
Bishop of Tours. He died in Touraine about the year 400. The 
festival of his birth is celebrated on the 11th of November; and, 
in Scotland, this day still marks the winter term, called Martin- 
mas (the Mass of St. Martin). 

Battle Abbey was dedicated to St. Martin. The name of Le 
Sire de L. Martin appears on the Roll of Battle Abbey, dated 
1066. 

I^e Sire Martin de Turon, a man of much wealth, assisted 
William Duke of Normandy in the conquest of England, from 
whom he obtained "Comb Martin" and other possessions. Some 
of his issue, called Fitz Martin, flourished to the height of a 
Barony, and had in time that title from Barnstaple, Darlington, 
etc., in Wales. 

. The ancient "Arms" of the family carry a Mural Crown in 
the Crest, denoting Roman antiquity. 

Arms: Argent, two bars, gules. 

Crest: Out of a Mural Crown vert, a talbot's head, eared 
and langued gules Collared of the first. 

Motto: Sure and Steadfast. 

The Martins of Plymouth county, Devonshire, England, were 
originally from Kent. 



8 MARTIN GENKALOGY. 

Captain John Martin of Plymouth (undoubtedly an officer of 
Queen Elizabeth), son of Martin of Martin of Bridgetown, near 
Tolness, sailed around the globe with Sir Francis Drake, leaving 
Plymouth Nov. 15th, 1577, and returning to the same port 
Sept. 26th, 1579. 

Capt. John Martin, married a sister of Sir Julius Caesar, K. T. , 
who married a daughter of Sir Richard Martin, Lord Mayor of 
London. 

The arms of the Martin family from Plymouth, Devonshire, 
originally from Kent; were: 

Arms: Gules, on a chevron or, three talbots passant sable. 

Crest: On a globe or, a falcon rising, argent, gorged, with a 
ducal coronet. 

Motto: Sure and Steadfast. 

In the days of chivalry. Coats of Arms were used to desig- 
nate pedigree and rank. On the decline of Feudalism, about 
1688, and the rise of the Reformation, their significance and 
value in a measure disappeared. Our stern Pilgrim forefathers 
denounced in strongest measure any reference to, or recollection 
of, what they regarded as relics of former family vanity. So 
their children and early descendants grew up in ignorance of the 
Heraldic standing of their ancestry in the mother country. 

There was a William Martin, of London, England, who 
assisted the Pilgrims in preparing for the first voyage of the 
Mayflower to this country, but it does not appear that he himself 
emigrated. 

Christopher Martin, his wife and son, Christopher, came over 
in the Mayflower in 1620, but they all died within a year after 
landing. 

Others, of the name of Martin, followed in each succeeding 
company for several years, and settled in various parts of the 
country; among whom was Lieut. Samuel Martin, some of 
whose descendants we here purpose to enumerate. 



MARTIN GBNKAI,OGY. 9 

1 . IviKUT. Samuki< Martin, '1st generation, of New Haven 
and Wethersfield, Ct., was born in Devonshire, England, and 
emigrated from Plymouth to America about 1640 to 1645. He 
married Phebe Bracey, and that their son, William, was born on 
ship board when they came to this country, and was called 
William Seaborn Martin, is a tradition held persistently by their 
descendants generally. 

The recorded facts disprove this tradition, as Phebe Bracey 
lived in New Haven (a widow) several years prior to her 
marriage to Samuel Martin. 

However, the records state that in 1652, Samuel Martin, six 
years after he married Phebe Bracey, 'Vent to I^ondon, England, 
and returned soon. ' ' Presumably, he had gone to visit his wife's 
father, William Bisby, a wealthy merchant of Eondon. It is 
hardly supposable that he made the journey without his wife. 

The records show that Samuel Martin was of too generous a 
nature to accumulate worldly goods to any great extent, and we 
would be justified in assuming that his father-in-law supplied the 
means for the visit, and that he wished to see his daughter. 

If we can believe that their son, William, was born on the 
return voyage, in 1653, and called William Seaborn, then the 
tradition and the recorded facts harmonize. This theory is sup- 
ported by the fact that no record can be found in New Haven or 
Wethersfield of the exact date of his birth. 

Phebe (Bisby) Brace or Bracey, widow of one Bracey, by 
whom she had five children in England (some of whom came to 
this country), was the oldest child and daughter of William 
Bisby, a gentleman of Eondon, who contributed considerable 
sums of money for assisting emigration to America. ' 'She came 
to this country in 1642; was at New Haven in 1644." 

"in 1646, Samuel Martin went from Wethersfield to New 
Haven, and married widow Phebe Bracey." 

"in 1647, Samuel and Phebe Bracey (brother and sister 
Martin) held sittings in the church at New Haven." They 
removed to Wethersfield in 1647, at which time her father, 



10 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

William Bisby, purchased a house and lot, "in trust for his 
daughter, Phebe and his son-in-law, Samuel and heirs; ' ' where 
she lived, and probably died. 

'*In 1648, they contributed to the expense of seating the 
meeting house in Wethersfield." 

"Samuel Martin went to London, England, in 1652, and re- 
turned soon." 

"In 1660, he was delegated to go to 'the Bay' and fetch the 
Rev'd Mr. Cotton to Wethersfield, to become pastor of Wethers- 
field Church." 

"On Jan. 17th, 1675, he was made a Corporal of dragoons, 
and served in King Philip's War." 

"On Dec. 19th, 1675, at the great fort-fight at Kingston, R. 
I., he earned his Lieutenancy and a bounty of 200 acres of 
land." 

"in 1677, he was granted 50 acres of land for himself and 
his heirs forever, prohibit." 

He was a man', of great executive ability, and was foremost in 
public affairs in the early settlement of New Haven and Wethers- 
field. Prior to earning his military titles, he was called "Mr." 
Samuel Martin, a mark of distinction granted only to men of 
unusual prominence. 

He died in 1683. They had three sons: 

2. I. Samuel Martin, Jr., 2d generation, born 1648, was a 

freeman of Woodbury, Ct., in 1669, of whom later. 

3. II. David Martin, 2d gen., born 1650, of whom later. 

4. III. William {SeabovTi) Marti?!, 2d gen., born cir., 1653, 

and married, June 25th, 1685, Abigail Nichols, a 
descendant of two prominent Colonial families. 

We will digress sufficiently to enable us to trace her descent 
from Sergeant Francis Nichols, founder of Stratford, and from 
Hon. Andrew Ward, founder of Wethersfield. 



NICHOLS. 11 

NICHOI.S. 

It is stated, that at the time of Edward the Confessor, one, 
Nicholas de Albini, alias Nichol, came over from Normandy, 
and was the common ancestor of the Nichol family.

in April, 1643, by General Court order, named Stratford. 

He was appointed in October, 1639, by General Court, to 
train the men and exercise them in military discipline; therefore, 
he was the first military officer on the plantation. 

He is recorded as one of the freeholders and inhabitants of 
Southold, E. I., in 1647; which was under the jurisdiction of 
Connecticut, and was known as Yorkshire. He died at Strat-

WARD. 

34. Hon. Andrew Ward, Fairfield, Conn., proprietor of 
Wethersfield, was a son of Richard Ward, of Suffolk, England. 
He married Esther Sherman, who came to this country with 
him prior to 1633, at which date he was admitted a freeman of 
Boston. He is recorded as a freeman of Watertown, May 14th, 
1634. 

In 1635, he and one other, were the first settlers of Wethers- 
field. 

The first court of the colony, established March, 1635, con- 
sisting of Andrew Ward and seven others, was commissioned by 
the General Court of Massachusetts ' 'to make and execute laws, 
and to govern the people of Connecticut for one year." 

The General Court of Connecticut, at its first session, held at 
Newtowne or Hartford, April 26th, 1636, ratified a dismissal of 
Andrew Ward and others from the Watertown church, authoriz- 
ing them "to form anew in a church covenant," in Connecticut. 

They established the first church in Wethersfield. 

In 1638, he was appointed, with Capt. John Mason and Mr. 
Allen, to go to Agawam (or Springfield), "to treat with the 
Indians at Waranoeke, concerning the charges of the Pequot 
war, to the value of one fathom of wampum a man, etc." He 
removed to New Haven in June, 1639; was constable of Stam- 
ford, March 26th, 1643. 

He was one of a company, who made a purchase of Hemp- 
stead, L. I^ Difficulties with the Dutch arising, he removed to 
Fairfield, becoming one of its most influential citizens, where 
he died in 1665, His wife, Esther, died the same year. His will, 
dated June 3d, 1659, and probated at Fairfield, bequeathed his

We will now resume the Martin line. 



4. William (Seaborn) Martin, 2d gen. (page 10), of 
Wethersfield and Woodbury, Conn., third son of I^ieut. Samuel 
Martin, and Phebe Bracey, was born cir. 1653. 

In 1670, he furnished many settlers for Stratford plantation, 
which accounts for his appearance at that place. He was one 
of forty, who were assigned house lots and division lands at 
Wethersfield, previous to King Philip's war, and prior to 1682, 

He married, June 25th, 1685, Abigail Nichols (No. 28), 
daughter of Caleb Nichols, and Anne Ward. She was born at 
Stratford, Ct., Feb. 6th, 1664. He removed to Woodbury, and 
with his wife, Abigail, was admitted to the first church in 
Woodbury, on their arrival there, Aug. 30th, 1685. 

He is on the Woodbury list of 1702, and his rate on April, 
1712, was ^0:2^: 2d. 



16 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

He died at Woodbury, July 4th, 1715, at the age of sixty- 
two years, and was hurried near the centre of the old burying" 
ground at that place, and stones were set at the head and foot of 
his grave. In 1854, both of these stones were lying on the 
ground near the grave. 

She survived him 20 years. Her brother, Caleb Nichols, Jr. 
(No. 30, page 13), dying unmarried, left his property, in part, 
to his sister Abigail "Widow Martin." She died at Woodbur}^ 
Jan. 4th, 1735, at the age of seventy-one years.

COAT OF ARMS. 

Arms. Gules, a bend vaire, between two fleurs-de-lis, or. 

CrKST. Hand clasping- darts, or. with a ducal coronet. 

Motto. Semper Sursum, (ever upward). 

Vaire is represented by small shield-shaped figures, from the 
fur of the beast called variis, expressed in azure and argent. 

The Bliss family lived in the village of Belstone, near 
Okehampton, in the south of England, and belonged to that 
staunch class known as English Yeomanry; though, at various 
times, different members of the family had married into the next 
higher order, that of the Knighthood. 

They owned the houses and lands they occupied, were free- 
holders, and entitled to vote for members of Parliament from the 
borough in which they resided. From time immemorial, they had 
inclined to Puritanism. On the occasion of Oliver Cromwell 
being sent to Parliament for the first time, two of the Bliss 
brothers, Jonathan and Thomas, sons of Thomas Bliss, 1st, rode 
to London, accompanying their representative to the House of 
Commons; they were marked by the spies of Charles I, arrested, 
fined ^1000 for nonconformity, and thrown into prison; their old 
father was dragged through the streets with greatest indignity. 



22 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

At another time, the three brothers were led throug-h the 
market-place, at Okehampton, with ropes around their necks, 
and fined heavily. 

Jonathan, the eldest brother, languished in prison, and died 
from the effects of a fever contracted there. 

They began to realize England was no longer a home for 
them, and turned their eyes toward the far and dreary wilderness 
of America. 

95. Thomas Bliss, 1st, Puritan, of Belstone parish, 
county of Devonshire, England, a wealthy farmer, who suffered 
persecution under direction of Archbishop L<aud, was born about 
1550 to 1560, and died in England, 1635 or 1636. 

Children (five). 

96. I. Jonathan Bliss, born in England, imprisoned by 

Charles I, for nonconformity and died from 
the effects of his imprisonment, 1635 or 1636. 

97. II. Thomas Bliss, 2d, born in England, 1580 to 

1585, of whom later. 

98. III. Elizabeth (Betty) Bliss, married Sir John 

Caldiffe, of Belstone, and was in later years of 
much assistance to her brothers, who had 
emigrated to America. 

99. IV. George Bliss, born in England, 1590; came to 

this country in 1635 with his brother Thomas, 
and died Aug. 31st, 1667. 

100. V. Mary (or Polly) Bliss, resided in England. 

97. Thomas Bliss, 2d, Hartford, was second son of 
Thomas Bliss, 1st, born at Belstone, England, 1580 to 1585; 
married in England, 1612 to 1615, Margaret (surname supposed 
to be Eawrence). 

Persecuted for his religious beliefs, he resolved to emigrate to 
America, and with his brother George and their families landed 
in Boston in the Autumn of 1635, and settled on the south side 
of Boston Bay. 



BUSS. 23 

In the following year, or thereabouts, they removed to Hart- 
ford, Ct. Whether or not the Blisses accompanied the party 
headed by Rev. Thomas Hooker, consisting of Gov. John 
Webster, Mr. Samuel Stone and others, is not certain; they were, 
however, among the original land proprietors of that place. In 
the settlement of Hartford, the land was laid out in "lots" and 
"tiers" and apportioned to the settlers; "lot No. 58 was assigned 
to Thomas Bliss, Sr., and lot No. 59 to Thomas Bliss, Jr., both 
on 'tier' 10, south side of the little river." 

The present Trinity street, was one of the original streets of 
Hartford, and was known as Bliss street, from the first settle- 
ment until 1855. 

Thomas Bliss, 2d, died at Hartford, in 1640. His widow, 
Margaret, managed the affairs of the family with great prudence 
and judgment. 

About the year 1646, part of their estate in Hartford was 
sold by Widow Bliss and her son, Thomas Bliss, 3d.

WEBSTER. 

15 5. Hon. Johx Weester, founder of Hartford^ Ct., 
and Wethersfield, Mass. (Governor), was born in Warwick 
county. England. 

In 1635. he came to Cambridge, Mass., with his wife, Agnes, 
and their five children, Robert. Mathew. Anne, Elizabeth and 
Mary. 

During the same year, with Rev. Thomas Hooker, Mr. Stone 
and others, he organized a company for the purpose of founding 
a colony on the banks of the Connecticut river. In June. 1636, 
this company, of over one hundred men, women and children, 
started out for their goal. Their route lay, for more than 100 
miles, through a hideous and trackless wilderness, over moun- 
tains, through swamps, across rivers: some of which they forded, 
crossing others on rudely constructed rafts; carr\-ing their worldly 
possessions in packs, including arms, ammunition and household 
utensils: driving before them their flocks and herds, consisting 
of 160 head of cattle: subsisting on game and fish and the milk 
of their cows. 

Mrs. Hooker, who was an invalid, was carried on a covered 
litter, much resembling an elongated Sedan Chair, and borne by 
two horses in tandem. In about two weeks, they reached their 
destination, which is the site of the present city of Hartford. 

John Webster, was one of the committee, who for the first 
time sat \\-ith the Coiut of Magistrates in 1637. 

In 1642, he was one of a committee to frame criminal laws 
for the Colonv.

For twenty years, he was annually chosen into the Ma^is- 
trac3^ of Connecticut. 

He was elected on the commission, for the United colonies, 
in 1654. At the election, in Hartford, May 17th, 1655, he was 
chosen Deputy Governor. In 1656, was elected Governor, being 
the fifth Colonial Governor of Connecticut. The rule being that 
no Governor could succeed himself. In 1657, he was chosen 
Chief Magistrate. 

In 1659, he with his three sons, Robert, William and Thomas, 
were associated in the purchase of land, for and in the settle- 
ment of Hadley, Mass., which was a direct outgrowth from 
Hartford and Wethersfield. 

He died in Hadley, April 5th, 1661, leaving quite a hand- 
some estate. His name, with those of John Marsh, Timothy 
Stanley and others, is inscribed on the public Monument to the 
earliest settlers in Hartford. 

Agnes, his wife, survived him, and died in Hartford. 

They had four sons and three daughters. Authorities differ 
widely as to the order of their birth, and also as to which were 
born in England, but the weight of evidence appears to be in 
favor of the following order:

JOSEPH MARTIN. 187 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH I. 

Captain Abijah Martin, of Woodbury, Conn., fourth 
generation (No. 87, pages 19, 32), first son of Joseph Martin 
and Sarah Harris, was born at Woodbury, Conn. ; baptized on 
October 16, 1720. 

He married first, Mary Terrill, daughter of Roger Terrill, 
of Woodbury; they had one son, EHjah. 

She died at Woodbury in 1744. 

He married second, in 1748, Sarah Webster (No. 137, page 
26), daughter of Samuel Webster and Anne Marsh. 

She was born at New Lebanon, Conn., in 1729 or 1730. She 
is a descendant of Thomas BHss, Puritan, of Belstone, Devon- 
shire, England; of Hon. John Webster, fifth Colonial Governor 
of Connecticut, and of John Marsh, one of the founders of Hart- 
ford, Conn. 

They had six sons and three daughters : Abijah, Sarah, An- 
drew, Jerusha, Ashbel, David, Samuel, Marsh and Mary Ann; 
all bom at Woodbury. 

In about the year 1783 they removed to Peacham, Vermont, 
where their sons had previously taken up land and cleared farms, 
and with whom they resided. 

She died in June, 1818, at the age of eighty-nine years, and 
was buried in the old graveyard, on the "Hooker Place," near 
a tall tree, standing on the south side of the present inclosure 
(1911). 

There are many persons living who are familiar with the 
location of her grave, although the head and foot-stones have 
long since disappeared. 

Timothy Cowles (No. 796), a grandnephew of Sarah Web- 
ster, died in California September, 1910, at the age of ninety- 
six years. In 1903, being then eighty-nine years old, he wrote 
to his niece, Jane E. Cowles, in relation to the funeral of his 
great aunt, as follows : "Sarah Webster died at the home of 
her grandson, Hon. Moses Martin; I was at the funeral, and 



188 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

rode with my father and mother. The procession went from 
there, by the old road, past the Pitkin mill, to the Chamberlain 
place; thence to the old burying ground to a grave near the * 
south side, about midway east and west ; a large tree stood 
there." 

Mrs. (Col.) Blanchard (No. 792), a great granddaughter of 
Sarah Webster, informed Mrs. Helen Guilford (No. 835), also 
a great granddaughter, that she attended Sarah Webster's funeral 
in 1818 at Peacham. 

Captain Abijah Martin was a seafaring man, who owned 
his own vessels, and sailed the high seas. 

He used to delight his grandchildren by relating his vari- 
ous sea voyages and adventures. Once, when in China, he 
wished to replenish his wardrobe ; his coat had become so much 
the worse for wear that it had patches on the elbows, the but- 
tons were of various descriptions, some black and some white, 
some of brass and some of bone, etc. He went to a Chinese 
tailor, who took his measure and asked if he wanted the coat 
like the one he was wearing. Captain Martin replying in the 
affirmative, the tailor made a minute inspection of the old coat. 
The new coat, when completed, was found to be an almost exact 
counterpart of the old one; the odd buttons and patches on the 
elbows being a prominent feature of the likeness. 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH II. 

Captain Reuben Hand, of Peacham, Vt., sixth generation 
(No. 193, pages 33, 34), first son of Elias Hand and Sarah 
Martin, and grandson of Captain Abijah Martin and Sarah '' 
Webster, was born at Woodbury, Conn., in 1777. 

He married Cir. 1801, Electa Hurd. In early life he re- 
moved to Peacham, Vt., where he took up land and cleared a 
farm. He was one of the prominent citizens of Peacham in 
the early days. He was appointed Captain of the State Militia, 
and was elected High Sheriff of the Town of Peacham, where 
he died October 22, 1822. 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 189 

His wife, Electa, was a very superior woman, and many of 
her graces of character and person have shown themselves in 
her daughters.

He married Cir. 1808, Clara Hurd, sister of Electa Hurd, 
wife of Captain Reuben Hand. She was born in 1787. 

He cleared a farm at Peacham, Vt., and lived there for about 
twenty years. In about the year 1827, he removed to North 
Troy, Vt., where he again took up land and cleared a second 
farm, on a part of which the Village of North Troy now stands. 

He lived there for seven or eight years, when he exchanged 
his farm for a saw mill, called the ''Creek Mill." almost on the 
national boundary line between Vermont and Canada. Here 
he lived for several years, when he sold the saw mill, and moved 
six miles farther into Canada, where he bought two hundred 
acres of land, mostly in virgin forest; and where, for the third 
time he cleared the land and made for himself and family a 
home. They lived here for over thirty years, when they re- 
moved to the home of their daughter, Flora, wife of Laverette 
Ashbel Hand (No. 212), and where he died September, 1876, 
at the age of eighty-eight years. 

His wife died the same year, aged eighty-nine.

Martin (No. 175), through his wife, Lydia Chamberlain. 

It is interesting to recall the marriage notice in the ancient 
town records of Hopkinton, Mass. : "Married, Samuel Chamber- 
lain and Martha Mellen, daughter of Deacon Henry Mellen ; a 
godly man." 

Thus we learn that her forbears were persons of exceptional 
endowments of intellectuality, patriotism and Christian principles. 

The quality and value of her race, not only have not dimin- 
ished, but in herself have deepened and strengthened as she has 
eagerly participatd in the multiplying beneficent enterprises of 
our rapidly growing country. 

In order to keep in touch with the onward sweep of civiliza- 
tion, she, with her sisters, transferred their residence from the 
place of their birth to Cambridge, Mass., and for a part of each 
year to Washington, D. C. 

As soon as Women's Missionary Societies were organized, 
she and her two sisters supported entirely one of their num- 
ber. Miss Laura B. Chamberlain, as Missionary Teacher and 
Principal of the Girls' Boarding School at Sivas, Turkey, under 
the care of the American Board. 

She has been for years the tireless, enthusiastic Secretary of 
the Chamberlain Association of the United States, and an active, 
devoted member of the Boston Tea Party Chapter of the Daugh- 
ters of the American Revolution. 

As Principal of Young Women's Schools she has labored 
with marked success, ever stimulating her pupils to emulate her 
own high ideals of life and service. 

She has rendered valuable assistance to the literary clubs 
of Boston and Washington by her keen discrimination between 
the worthless and the fine in literature. 

Philanthropic organizations appeal to her, and she has worked 
in many of them with effective force; in numberless ways un- 
known to the public in general, through her means and large- 
hearted sympathy, she has sustained and comforted many whose 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 191 

lives would otherwise have been desolate. Thus she is proving 
herself a worthy daughter of sires, who, on the shores of New 
England, exiled from the land of their birth, not only "rolled 
the Psalm to the wintry skies," but, with faith and power, laid 
the foundation of this, our great commonwealth. 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH V. 

Honorable Moses Martin (Captain), sixth generation (No. 
301, page 45), third son of Captain Ashbel Martin and Lydia 
Chamberlain, and grandson of Hon. Samuel Chamberlain, was 
born at Peacham, Vt., October 30, 1796. 

He married first, at Peacham in 1819, Jane A. Martin, who 
was born September 28, 1799, and died May 29, 1826. 

They had three children, Jane, Louisa and Mary. 

He married second, Almyra Dana, daughter of Elisha Dana, 
of Pomfret, Conn. She was born May 6, 1803, and died August 
2, 1870. 

They had three sons and three daughters, as follows : Eliza- 
beth Dana, Ashbel, Moses Mellen, Almyra, Edwin and Caroline 
Jane. 

He was reared on his father's farm, which he inherited after 
his father's death, and which is still in the possession of the 
family. 

He was a prominent and active citizen of the pioneer settle- 
ment during his life. 

In his young manhood he was chosen Captain of the Militia, 
and was indispensable at the annual June trainings. 

He was noted for his physical prowess; modest, unassuming 
and unpretentious withal. On one occasion it became necessary 
for him to "take the starch" out of the champion wrestler of 
the county; which he proceeded to do, to the entire satisfaction 
of the numerous onlookers and of the ex-champion himself. 

Of public offices, he held many; was a Selectman of the 
Town for many years. 



192 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

He represented Peacham in the State Legislature at Mont- 
pelier, Vt., at several sessions of that body. 

He was an active member and for many years Deacon of the 
Congrgational Church. 

He died May 31, 1874, honored and respected by all, and 
without an enemy in the world. 

The Martin Homestead is at present occupied by his young- 
est daughter, Caroline Jane (Martin) Whitehill, familiarly 
known as Aunt Carrie, who, with her genial husband, Andrew 
Whitehill (a prominent figure in all town affairs), makes it 
the embodiment of hospitality, and the mecca of all the Martins 
of this branch — great and small — on many a Christmas and 
Thanksgiving Day. 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH VI. 

Captain Ashbel Martin, fifth generation (No. 175, pages 
32, 37, 44), third son and fifth child of Captain Abijah and 
Sarah Webster, was born at Woodbury, Conn., in 1760, and 
baptized November 27, 1760. 

He married first, at Peacham, Vt., Cir. 1785, Lorana Miner, 
who lived only a short time ; they had no children. 

He married second, Cir. 1789, Lydia Chamberlain, daugh- 
ter of Hon. Samuel Chamberlain (No. 251, page 38) and Martha 
Mellen. 

She was born at Hopkinton, Mass., in 1765, removed with 
her father to Canterbury, near Concord, Mass., and thence, in 
1774, to London, N. H., where she remained during the 
troublous times of the Revolutionary War. 

She removed to Peacham, Vt., some time during the year 
1787, and probably lived with her brother General William 
Chamberlain (No. 255, page 40), and in all probability was 
married at his residence. 

They had six sons and two daughters. 

She died at Peacham, October 10 or 22, 1811, at the age 
of forty-six years. 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 193 

He married third, at Peacham, in 1813, Mary (Roat) Mar- 
tin, cousin to his first wife, Lorana Miner and widow of Captain 
Noah Martin, by whom she had had six children, as follows: 
Olive, Jane Adelaine (who married her stepbrother, Hon. 
Moses Martin; No. 301, page 45), Flora, Olive Augusta, John 
Marshall and Noah Henry. 

Captain Ashbel Martin adopted the last four children men- 
tioned, and offered them for baptism on July 24, 1814, with his 
infant daughter, Caroline. 

He lived on the farm he had cleared, and in the home he had 
made; and died December 7, 1833, at the ''Noah Martin Inn," 
at East Peacham, also called Peacham Hollow. 

His third wife, Mary, survived him about four years, and 
died August 18, 1837, having been thrown from a wagon and 
receiving injuries which proved fatal within two hours. 

While at his native town of Woodbury, Conn., Young Ash- 
bel (then at the age of fifteen and a half), filled with patriotism, 
determined to follow the example of his three older brothers, 
and joined the ranks of the Continental Army in defense of his 
country. 

His Revolutionary War record following is taken principally 
from the records of the Pension Bureau at Washington, D. C, 
and from a memorial by Miss Jane Elizabeth Cowles, read on 
the occasion of "Markers" being placed at the graves of eleven 
Revolutionary soldiers in the cemetery and old graveyard at 
Peacham on Decoration Day, May 30, 1905 ;• his grave being 
decorated by Alma Bailey, a great-great-granddaughter. 

In June, 1776, Ashbel Martin enlisted from Woodbury, 
Conn., for six months in the Company of Captain Hurd, Regi- 
ment of Colonel Sillman and Brigade of General Wadsworth. 
In the same month his Company marched to Norwalk, on the 
way to New York, and he was in the service until December 
25, 1776. He was not in the engagement which resulted in 
the capture of General Sullivan August 27, but had recrossed 



194 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

from Long Island to New York City and from thence to Stam- 
ford, Conn., where he was sick at a private house. Upon re- 
covering from this illness, he joined the army again, after the 
battle of White Plains. In 1777 he was in Lieut. Martin's 
Company, Colonel Sillman's Regiment, at Crumpond and Fish- 
kill, and at Peekskill at the time of the burning of Esopus. In 
the fall of 1777, he was in Nathan Kurd's Company. In the 
winter of 1777 and 1778, he was three weeks at Horse Neck. 
In 1778, he was three weeks at Fishkill, in Gideon Martin's 
Company. In 1779, he was in Gideon Martin's Company at 
the burning of Norfolk. After the war he was made Captain 
of Militia at Peacham, Vt. On July 13, 1832, then seventy- 
two years of age, he applied for and received a pension. 

The first sale of land in Peacham that we have been able to 
find on record was to Nathan Martin, of Woodbury, Conn., 
January 4, 1773, by Jacob Bailey, agent of the Land Company 
at Newburv. Vt. This is what is now known as the "Partridg^e 
Place" adjoining the Martin Homestead. 

Abijah Martin bought one hundred acres on November 4, 
1774. 

Simeon Walker, a cousin of Captain Ashbel Martin, pur- 
chased Lot No. 66 on December 20, 1774. So we see that the 
Martins were early on the ground. 

Little or no improvement was made on these properties at 
that time by reason of the breaking out of the Revolutionary 
War, which commanded the attention of the male portion of 
the Martin family. After the war they returned to the land 
they had taken up in Vermont. 

In 1780, Ashbel Martin, with three or four of his brothers, 
left Woodbury, walking two hundred and fifty miles to what 
was to be their future home in Peacham; carrying with them 
utensils, tools, arms and ammunition to provide for themselves 
game for food, and to defend themselves against the Indians. 

They worked during the summer months, clearing the land. 
The nearest depot for supplies was twenty miles away. 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 195 

When the cold weather set in, they returned to their home 
at Woodbury for the winter; this performance was repeated 
for several years, so that the settlers on their route used to 
remark that they were like the birds who went south to winter. 

One of the first log houses built was on what is now known 
as the "Martin Homestead," and became the home of Ashbel 
Martin; the other brothers located at different points not far 
distant. When they had clearings of sufficient size to raise food- 
stuffs enough to make them comparatively independent, the 
entire family moved to Peacham, including his father, Abijah, 
and his mother, Sarah. 

There were by this time many other settlers in the neigh- 
borhood; Captain Ashbel's brother-in-law. General William 
Chamberlain, came with his bride on horseback to Peacham in 
1781 ; later others of the Chamberlains followed. 

The two families intermarried, and in the year 1790 there 
were of the Martins and Chamberlains fifty-one persons, all 
living within a radius of one and a quarter miles. 

They were a sturdy lot, those early pioneers, enduring hard- 
ships, with which the present generation are unfamiliar, and 
of which they little dream. 

The winters were generally more severe than now ; Captain 
Ashbel used to relate to his grandchildren an unusual incident 
that occurred in the year 1816, called the cold year — frost and 
snow continuing until early summer. 

Joseph Walker, husband of Elizabeth Martin (No. 82, page 
19), then in his eighty-first year, had his feet frozen in the 
snow on the 8th day of June, 1816. 

Captain Ashbel Martin was prominent in all the public af- 
fairs of the new settlement, was a man of sound judgment, of 
rare executive and business ability, a strong advocate of tem- 
perance, and one of the forerunners of that movement which 
made Vermont a prohibition state. 

The fertility of the soil favored him; he prospered, his log 
dwelling and barns were added to from time to time. 



196 ' MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

About the year 1800, he was among the first in Caladonia , 
County to build a frame house, which he erected within a hun- 
dred feet of the present dwelHng, called the "Martin Home- 
stead" and is now occupied by his granddaughter, Caroline Jane 
Martin, and her husband, Andrew Whitehill. 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH VII. 

Honorable Luther Fletcher Parker, M. D. (page 46), 
was a native of Coventry, Orleans County, Vermont ; born 
September 22, 1821, the second of a family of eleven children. 
His early education was obtained in the local schools and in 
Brownington and Peacham Academies. During the years 
1845-6, he attended the University of Vermont, at Burlington, 
but ill health obliged him to relinquish his studies, and for the 
next two years he taught school at Coventry Falls. He com- 
menced the study of medicine in the office of Dr. G. W. Cobb, 
of Peacham, and on his death, continued with his successor. Dr. 
Farr, attending medical lectures at Dartmouth and Woodstock. 
He was subsequently requested by Dr. Brewer, of Barnet, to 
assume his large practice, which he retained until his removal 
to Peacham, March 16, 1854, when he purchased the profes- 
sional connection of Dr. Farr. He received the degree of M. D. 
from Dartmouth in 1865. During the Civil War he was sent 
to the front in charge of a sum of money collected in Peacham 
for the Sanitary Commission, and arriving soon after the Battle 
of the Wilderness, he found the exigency of the occasion so 
great that he gave his professional services freely to the 
wounded of that dreadful contest. For more than fifty years 
he had an extensive practice, keeping fully abreast with the 
great advance of medical science, and gained a high reputation 
as a consulting physician in all the surrounding country. 

In politics he was at first a Whig, and later a Republican ; 
but though often requested to become a candidate for office, 
he always refused, except in 1886 and 1888, when he repre- 
sented Peacham in the Legislature, and in both sessions served 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 197 

im the Ways and Means and Temperance Committees. He 
was one of the trustees of Peacham Academy, first appointed 
in 1855 ; a member of several medical societies ; of the Peacham 
Congregational Church, and of the Vermont Home Missionary 
Society. 

Dr. Parker married June 6, 1850, Louisa Martin (No. 308, 
])age 46), daughter of Deacon Moses Martin of Peacham. She 
was born June 10, 1822, and died May 28, 1896. He died 
September 13, 1898, aged seventy-seven years. Their children 
were Jane Martin, Arabella P., Hazen Merrill, Elizabeth Ann, 
Ellen Louisa, Luther, Alma and Carrie Alice. 

The lineage of Dr. Parker has been traced to the early set- 
tlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. His father, Hon. Isaac 
Parker of Coventry, was a native of Cavendish, a graduate of 
Middlebury College and a man of considerable note as a scholar 
and educator; his paternal grandfather, also named Isaac, was 
born in Westford, Mass., August 22, 1760, and enlisted in the 
Revolutionary War as a drummer before he had reached his fif- 
teenth birthday. He topk part in the battles of Concord and 
of Bunker Hill and served in several later campaigns. Fur- 
ther back the line runs through Lieutenant Moses, fourth gen- 
eration ; Aaron, third generation ; Moses, second generation, to 
Abraham Parker, the immigrant, one of the founders of Chelms- 
ford, Mass., in 1655, and the ancestor of a host of men of 
prominence in professional and mercantile life. 

Dr. Parker's mother was Arabella Cobb, who was born in 
Westmoreland, N. H., June 24, 1795, daughter of Samuel and 
Silence (Barney) Cobb, whose family was noted for their su- 
perior physique and mechanical skill. The Cobbs were from 
Taunton, Mass., where the immigrant, John Cobb, settled, about 
1650. The line comes through Samuel, second generation; Cap- 
tain Richard, third generation, a soldier at Louisburg, and in 
later battles of the French and Indian Wars, to Samuel, fourth 
generation, a soldier of the Revolution and the pioneer settler 
of Coventry, Vt., the grandfather of Dr. Parker.

of the same place. 



200 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

At the age of fourteen, he was apprenticed for five years 
to Roderick A. Dingwall, watchmaker and jeweler. 

In 1869 he removed to Menekaune, Wis., on the Menominee 
River. 

In 1870 he located at Peshtigo, Wis., a lumbering town on 
the Peshtigo River, and engaged in the watchmaking and jewelry 
business there. 

On the evening of October 8, 1871, the same night as the 
great Chicago fire, the Village of Peshtigo was swept by a 
forest fire, which destroyed every building in the place. It ex- 
tended for a stretch of seventy miles, through forest and farm. 

The total number of lives lost is variously estimated at from 
eight hundred to one thousand. 

Only those escaped who took to the river, and many, even 
in the water, were either suffocated or drowned. 

Daylight revealed hundreds of bodies, in all directions, of 
those who had failed to reach the river. 

Mr. Hay was one of the fortunate survivors. After the 
fire he located at Marinette, Wis., about seven miles distant, 
another lumbering town on the Menominee River. 

Five years later he married on January 12, 1876, Julia 
Louisa Woodhull (No. 336, page 49), daughter of Rev. George 
Spofford Woodhull, D. D., Presbyterian minister of that place, 
and Elizabeth Dana Martin.

On September 30, 1888, he was ordained a Minister of the 
Gospel by the Presbytery of New York. 

He sailed for Osaka, Japan, arriving there the same year, 
and took up the work nearest to his heart; that of preaching 
the Gospel to the people of Japan, which work he continued, 
with enthusiasm and joy, until his death at Tokyo, October 
11, 1895. 

A memorial service was held by the West Japan Mission 
at its annual meeting at Kyoto, November, 1895. 

To the father of the deceased, the Secretary wrote as fol- 
lows : "Your son was a beloved and highly honored member 
of this body; many were the tributes made to his kindness, 
unselfishness, zeal and success in his work. No man was ever 
more sincerely mourned." 

A Japanese pastor. Rev. Mr. Wada, said of him, "Many 
words which I heard him speak years ago in Osaka are still 
sounding in my ears. Many Japanese friends to-day join with 
his family and foreign friends in lamenting his sad and un- 
timely death. In him the West Japan Mission lost one of 
its most earnest and successful workers." 

He left a widow, a son and two daughters; the son, George 
Edmund, Jr., has since deceased; the daughters, Arima and 
Caroline, reside with their mother at Los Angeles, Cal.

ablaze with the news of the discovery of gold in California.

Young Ashbel, with others, contracted the "gold fever." 

It is quite probable that his parents did not sympathize with 
him in what seemed to be the only cure for the disease — a trip 
to the Pacific Coast — as having decided to take the cure, he 
borrowed money for the journey, took sail with some Peacham 
friends from New York to Panama ; packed his worldly goods 
across the deadly Isthmus, and sailed up the coast, reaching 
the mining district in the spring of 1852. 

His first earnings were sent home to repay the loan above 
mentioned, after which he staked out a claim in the Placer mines. 

After working his claim for about three years and a half 
he returned home with what ''dust" he had been able to collect 
strapped around his waist, and purchased the Chamberlain farm 
from Deacon Ezra Chamberlain, son of General William 
Chamberlain. 

This farm he added to, from time to time, until it became 
one of the largest and best in Caladonia County, equipped with 
the most modern machinery and appliances ; it is still in pos- 
session of his family, being now successfully operated by his 
youngest son, William Brock Martin, who enjoys the reputation 
of being one of Peacham's most popular and influential citizens. 

On November 5, 1857, Ashbel Martin married Hannah 
Wesson, daughter of Moses and Phebe Wesson, of Danville, Vt. 

He was closely identified with all public affairs, holding many 
town offices ; for many years one of its "Selectmen." 

He represented Caladonia County in an able manner in the 
State Legislature at Montpelier, Vt., during the Session of 1874. 

He was a patriotic citizen, a good neighbor and generous to 
a fault in every good work. 

He was deeply interested in, and took a leading part in, 
the Congregational Church, of which he was a Deacon for many 
years until his death January 8, 1899, at the age of sixty-nine 
years. 

Ever a faithful companion and helpmeet, his widow sur- 
vives him now in her eighty-first year, enjoying good health and 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 205 

taking an active interest in all the affairs of the younger fam- 
ilies about her. 

She lives with her son. Deacon Moses Wesson Martin, on 
his farm at Peacham. 

He, follov^ing in the footsteps of his father, holds several 
pubhc offices and offices of trust, and is closely identified with 
all the activities of Church and State.

Rkvkr^nd Mosks MeIvLEn Martin, D. D., seventh genera- 
tion (No. 312, page 53), second son and third child of Hon. 
Moses Martin and Almyra Dana, was born at Peacham, Vt., 
April 8, 1834, upon a farm that has been the home of six 
generations of his family. 

He inherited sterling qualities and sound judgment from a 
good stock of ancestors, counting among them the Hon. John 
Webster and John Marsh of Hartford, Conn., the Chamber- 
lains and Mellens of Hopkinton, Mass. 

His great-grandfather, Hon. Samuel Chamberlain, having 
married Martha Mellen, daughter of Deacon Henry Mellen 
and Abigail Pratt of that town; the old records mention Deacon 
Mellen as a "godly man." 

His grandparents. Captain Ashbel Martin and Lydia Cham- 
berlain, were among the first settlers of Peacham, Vt., and 
were among the first who built frame houses in that locality. 

He received the rudiments of education in the district where 
his father lived ; fitted for college at Peacham Academy, and 
graduated from Middlebury College in 1861, and from Prince- 
ton Theological Seminary in 1864. He held pastorates in Pres- 
cott and Mazomanie, Wis., and in Three Oaks, Allegan and 
Ovid, Mich., where he died September 25, 1902. All these pas- 
torates were eminently successful. Executive ability was a 
striking characteristic, and all his pastorates gave tangible evi- 
dence of his power to accomplish large results under for- 
bidding conditions. 



206 MARTIN GENEAI^OGY. 

A brother minister says of him, "The longer I knew him, 
the stronger was the feeHng which possessed me that here was 
a grand man, deriving many of his splendid qualities by heredity 
from that vigorous New England stock, of which he was him- 
self so fine a representative ; receiving as a parental legacy 
that manly beauty of form and feature ; that well-balanced 
intellect; that trained conscience; that unpretentious piety, 
which clothed him as with a garment of beauty; and a full 
equipment of gifts and graces, which made a well-rounded man- 
hood. Added to this inheritance, was a native culture and a 
thorough educational discipline, combined with a clearness and 
maturity of judgment, and coupled with a great kindness of heart 
and a wholesome sense of humor, giving a poise and yet an 
elasticity to his life, which made him a good counselor and a 
chosen companion." 

It was in 1880, that, bereft of all family ties, he met and 
was married to Miss Mary Pierce, daughter of Alvah Warren 
Pierce and Lydia Wilkins Atwood, of Londonderry, Vt., who, 
with their four children, Pauline, Percis, Mellen and Blanche, 
will cherish the memory of a rarely thoughtful and affectionate 
husband and father.

Andrew Whitehill, Peacham, Vt., son of WilHam White- 
hill, of Ryegate, Vt., was born at Ryegate, September 17, 1836. 

At the age of thirty he followed Horace Greeley's advice 
and went west as far as Iowa, and took up many acres of prairie 
land near Marshall and State Centre, intending to make that 
his home; but the call of the east became so strong that he re- 
turned in 1874 to Peacham. 

He married CaroHne Jane Martin (No. 315, page 55), daugh- 
ter of Hon. Moses Martin and Almyra Dana of Peacham, and 
purchased the Martin Homestead, which farm has greatly 
improved under his successful and progressive management. 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 207 

He is a man very much respected in the community in which 
he Hves ; of sound judgment ; his wise counsels are often sought. 

His fellow citizens have honored him with many town of- 
fices, among which are those of "Lister" (Tax Assessor) and 
Road Inspector. 

He is an expert judge of horses, sheep and cattle ; for many 
years a director of the Co-operative Creamery Company of 
South Peacham.

Lyman Martin, seventh generation (No. 363, page 56), 
first child and only son of Captain Leonard Martin and Eliza- 
beth Kellog, was born at Peacham, Vt., November 5, 1827. 

When he was five years of age, his parents removed with 
their family to Dixville, Que., purchased land, and cleared a 
farm. 

In those days means of travel were very crude ; everything in 
the way of household goods and produce had to be hauled by 
ox sleds from Montreal, a distance of about eighty miles. 

At the age of twenty-seven he married Isabelle Lorimer, of 
Beebe, Que., who was born in Scotland in 1829. 

Their life on the old farm, blazed out of the virgin forest 
by his father, has been a very active and happy one. Seven 
children and twelve grandchildren assist in making them keep 
pace with the times. 

On January 14, 1911, they celebrated their fifty-seventh wed- 
ding anniversary in full possession of all their faculties, inter- 
ested in the town and the church, which is very dear to them ; 
having lived to see great changes in all the townships about 
them. Coaticook, their early home at one time, boasted only of 
two houses. They expect to celebrate several more wedding 
anniversaries, with their children, grandchildren and great- 
grandchildren all under the old home roof again.

twenty-four years of age. He was also made a member of 
the Conference Committee at this time. 

More recently he has been employed by the General Con- 
ference of South Dakota Adventists, and has been holding large 
evangelistic meetings in the South. His last pastorate was 
at Asheville, N. C, where he succeeded in raising up a pros- 
perous church.

210 MARTIN GENEAI^OGY. 

In addition to the management of the farm, he had other 
business interests, which necessitated his visiting pretty thor- 
oughly all parts of the United States and Canada. 

On January 22, 1902, they celebrated their Golden Wedding 
Anniversary at the residence of their son, John Nelson Gushing, 
Peninsula Dairy Farm, Dixville, Que. Two sons and two

in-law of the bride, were honored guests, they having attended 
the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Gushing fifty years before ; they 
also having just celebrated their own Golden Wedding. 

Mr. and Mrs. Gushing were both hale and hearty; she her- 
self having prepared and cooked the dinner for the occasion, 
allowing herself to be assisted only in "setting" the long tables 
and "dishing up," remarking that she was "not a bit tired." 

The groom looked fresh and ruddy, having been in the habit 
of milking from twelve to nineteen cows daily, besides attending 
to other chores around the premises. 

Nine years afterwards, on February 10, 1911, very much 
the same gathering was repeated when they celebrated their 
fifty-ninth wedding anniversary. Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Martin

anniversary; after which they all joined in reading the one hun- 
dred and third Psalm, as an expression of their thankfulness 
and joy.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXIV. 

Edmond Ware, father-in-law of Dr. Lyman Martin (No. 
299, page 69), was one of the most prominent and influential 
citizens of Woodford County, Ky. ; owning a large tract of 
land and many slaves. 

He married Sukey Brassfield, of Culpeper, Va. 

Their children were: James Ware, born September 18, 1787; 
John Ware, born May 28, 1790; Sally Ware, born January 20, 
1792; Lewis Ware, born January 16, 1794; Catherine Ware, 
born May 28, 1796; Edmond Ware, 2d, born July 27, 1798. 

Their daughter Catharine was born in the old Homestead 
on their plantation, which house is still in a good state of 
preservation, and is owned by Mr. A. M. Smith. 

She married in 1818 Dr. Lyman Martin, eldest son and 
second child of Captain Ashbel Martin and Lydia Chamberlain. 
She was a woman of great strength of character and decided 
executive ability; was a devoted member of the Baptist Church, 
and died at the age of eighty-eight years, at the home of John 
Boyle Martin, then her only living child. 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXV. 

Dr. Lyman Martin, sixth generation (No. 299, page 69), 
second child of Captain Ashbel Martin and Lydia Chamber- 
lain, was born at Peacham, Vt., May 12, 1793; died August 
23, 1864; graduated in medicine at Dartmouth College, and in 
1816 began practice as an associate of Dr. Mussey, in Cincin- 
nati, Ohio. 

While yet a young man, Dr. Martin was sent by his senior 
to assist in handling a typhoid epidemic at Vevay, Ind. He 
acquitted himself with such credit on this mission that Dr. 
Mussey offered him an active partnership in his practice, but, 
having formed attractive associations in the Kentucky neigh- 
borhood of Vevay, he declined the offer and established a prac- 
tice at New Liberty. An important factor in this decision was 



214 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

his marriage, in 1818, to Catharine Ware, daughter of Edmond 
Ware and Sukey Brassfield, of Culpeper, Va., and Woodford 
County, Kentucky. After their marriage they at once removed 
to New Liberty, Ky., and made that their home. 

Dr. Martin was a man of culture and scholarly attainments ; 
he lived far in advance of his time, and he was perhaps the most 
progressive citizen that Owen County has ever had. He was 
interested in the betterment of country roads and schools. He 
organized a village library and two institutions of learning in 
the town of New Liberty, which institutions were attended 
by pupils not only from the State at large, but from neighbor- 
ing States as well. It is supposed that he built the "Martin 
Institute" at his own expense. The town of New Liberty 
was burned soon after his death and it has never been educa- 
tionally important since. 

He was a "Whig" politically, and while he owned slaves, he 
enthusiastically espoused the Union cause ; not recognizing, 
however, the right of the North to confiscate their property 
without reimbursement. Notwithstanding this belief, he was 
strongly opposed to the disruption of these United States for 
any reason. 

As a physician he occupied an exceptional position. A call 
of thirty or forty miles was not an unusual occurrence, nor were 
such calls ever unheeded. He was greatly beloved by his people, 
was a man of most attractive personality, great dignity of bear- 
ing, and a most lovable nature. He was a man of power and 
influence in his community, and the effect of his example was 
manifest long after his activities were ended.

and died. He enjoyed a wide reputation as a professional man, 
and was universally respected and loved. He died in 188L 
at the age of fifty, in the zenith of his career. 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXVII. 

John Boyle: Martin, 1st, seventh generation (No. 452, 
page 69), third son of Dr. Lyman Martin and Catherine Ware, 
was born at New Liberty, Owen County, Ky., October 17, 1825; 
died in Louisville, Ky., March 24, 1901, at the residence of his 
daughter, Mrs. Attilla Cox, and was buried at Owenton, Ky. 

He received his education in the common schools and acad- 
emies of New Liberty, and upon the completion of his studies, 
engaged in mercantile business. 

In 1859 Mr. Martin was married to Miss Martha Yates 
Leonard, second child of Tolbert Leonard and Lavina Ellis, who 
was born February 19, 1828, at Stamping Ground, Scott County, 
Ky. She was a woman of great strength of mind and char- 
acter, and filled all positions in life with grace and dignity 
becoming her noble womanhood. She was ever ready in all 
work for the betterment of humanity. 

She died January 25, 1899, in Covington, Ky., at the resi- 
dence of her son, William C. Martin. 

John Boyle Martin was for many years engaged in business 
at New Liberty, but in November, 1878, moved to Owenton, 
Ky., where he filled an office to which he was elected and re- 
elected for many terms by his fellow citizens. 

Mr. Martin held various positions of honor and trust in his 



216 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

native county, and was universally respected, esteemed and ad- 
mired. He was a man of great dignity of character and un- 
failing courtesy; of firm convictions, but unusually tolerant of 
the frailties and shortcomings of others. He was a lifelong 
member of the Church of the Disciples, and for many years 
held the position of Elder. He was devoted to the interests 
of his Church. 

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXVIII. 

Honorable Attilla Cox, son of James Pleasant Cox and 
Felicia Oboussier, was born at Ghent, Ky., August 16, 1843, 
and died at Louisville, July 7, 1909. He married, April 29, 
1869, Kate Ware Martin (No. 455, page 70), daughter of John 
Boyle Martin and Martha Yates Leonard, who at this date 
(1911) survives him. 

Mr. Cox was the second of four brothers, and a descend- 
ant of an old Virginia and Maryland family. He was edu- 
cated in the common schools of Carroll County. The death of 
his father, at an early period in his life, made it necessary for 
him to become an active bread winner. 

With his brothers he embarked in a general merchandise 
business at Owenton, Ky., under the firm name of F. & A. Cox 
& Co. By vigorous and aggressive management, this business 
was soon expanded to include interests in local banking com- 
panies; all the more important roads and transportation lines 
in the county ; the first intervillage telephone installed in the 
State, and other county utilities and interests. During these 
years Mr. Cox, by his natural qualities of leadership, acquired 
a political popularity, which in 1879 sent him to the State Sen- 
ate as the Democratic representative of his district. He served 
two terms as Senator, and was actively interested in the Presi- 
dential campaign of 1884. He was a member of the National 
Notification Committee, which formally notified Mr, Cleveland 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 217 

of his nomination. On Cleveland's election Mr. Cox was ap- 
pointed Collector of Internal Revenue of the Fifth District of 
Kentucky, and moved his family to Louisville to take charge 
of that office on July 1, 1885. In his new environment, Mr. 
Cox exhibited such marked ability that, upon the expiration of 
his term as Collector, he successfully organized the Mechanics' 
Savings Bank and Trust Co., of Louisville (February 2, 1889), 
and, as President of that institution, so successfully managed its 
affairs that in 1891 he was able to affect a consolidation with 
the Columbia Finance and Trust Co., becoming President of the 
combined concern, under the latter name. He built up this 
company, until at the time of his death it was one of the largest 
and strongest institutions of its kind in the South. 

In addition to his banking interests, he became so widely 
known as a successful financier and business man that his 
services were eagerly sought in other lines. In 1893 he was 
appointed Receiver of the Louisville, St. Louis and Texas Rail- 
road, and operated this road with such results that he was able 
to reorganize it, in 1896, as the Louisville, Henderson and St. 
Louis Railroad Co., of which company he was President until 
his death. At the time of his death he was a Director of the 
L. and N. Railroad; the Louisville Ry. Co.; the Louisville Gas 
Company ; the Louisville Traction Co. ; Federal Chemical Com- 
pany; the Springfield Railway and Light Co., of Springfield. 
111., and various other concerns. 

Mr. Cox had unusual qualities for successful business enter- 
prises. He was patient, cagacious, far-sighted. Pie was 
courteous, considerate, thoughtful. He was a good judge of 
men and a good judge of values. He was a man of the gentlest 
feelings, of the most courteous manners, of the most unselfish 
nature ; a most valued associate, a most delightful companion.

In the early history of roads in this country, a trail was cut 
through the woods, on which freight was conveyed by pack horse. 
As the settlements increased, these trails were widened to admit 
of the old ox cart, or wagon in summer and the sled in winter. 
Swamps and marshy places were avoided ; these roads were very 
poor at best, and in spring and autumn well nigh impassable. 

In course of time these made way for the gravel road, with 
ditches on each side ; swamps and marshes were corduroyed ; the 
latter being in many instances several miles in length. 

It was at this period that Charles Porter came to the front 
as a Master Freighter, owning his own four, six and eight-horse 
teams, carrying merchandise between N. Troy, Vt., and Boston,

Reverend Wiley Taui. Poynter, D. D., son of Thomas 
Poynter of Angeline, was born in Montgomery County, Ky., 
August 14, 1838. 

He was educated at Frankfort, Ky., and at the early age of 
nineteen had made for himself such a reputation for thorough- 
ness in instruction and discipline, which few men acquire, only 
after years of patient and laborious toil, that he was appointed 
Principal of the Winchester Academy. 

He married, first, in 1857, Pattee Poston, and soon after 
became an officer in the Henry G. Poston Banking House, which 
position he resigned at the breaking out of the Civil War to 
become an officer in the Quartermaster General's Department 
of the United States Army, which office he held until peace 
was established in 1865. 

Returning to private life he became cashier of the National 
Bank of Winchester, Ky. 

During all these years, however, having been trained by 
rehgious Methodist parents, he had a persistent feeling that 
his life's work should be that of preaching the Gospel; so, 
at this time, he decided that as soon as he could relinquish him- 
self from his numerous business enterprises, he would enter 
this new field. He fitted himself for the ministry and in 1867 
was admitted to the Conference of Kentucky. 

So highly had he commended himself by his sterling qual- 
ities of honesty, justice, energy and fidelity, that, owing to the 
importunities of the people of his own town, the Bishop yielded 
and appointed the young minister's first charge at Winchester. 



232 MARTIN GENEALOGY. 

Other charges followed, among which were M'illersburg, 
Paris and Carrollton, where he preached with power, obtaining 
great results covering a period of thirteen years, 

At the earnest solicitation of friends, he took upon him- 
self the responsibilities of President of the Science Hill Female 
College. 

His wife, Pattie, having died several years previous, leav- 
ing a daughter, Anna, and two sons, Henry Poston and Taylor 
Fletcher. He married, second, Kate Winn, who died sooi» 
afterwards. 

After several years, he married, third, at Paris, Ky., Clara 
Davis Martin (No. 843, page 124), daughter of Hezekiah Davis 
Martin and Juliet Elmina (Jameson) Woods. 

She was born in Bourbon County, near Paris, Ky., on a farm, 
which was a part of the original grant to an ancestor, who was 
one of the first settlers of that county. 

A party for settlement was organized by a Captain Martin 
from Pennsylvania, whose services in the Revolutionary War 
were thus rewarded. Whether this Captain Martin was David 
Martin, grandfather of Clara Davis Martin, has yet to be de- 
termined. 

Dr. Poynter, by this marriage, had one son and two daugh- 
ters, Horace Martin, Juliet Jameson and Harriet Rockwell, all 
living. 

During the seventeen years at Science Hill College, he was 
a most indefatigable worker; teaching during the daytime, his 
evenings were occupied in writing sermons, addresses on edu- 
cation, keeping his books, besides writing articles for the press ; 
for he took an active part in the theological controversies and 
discussions of the times. 

When the College needed funds, he found time to solicit and 
obtain the same. 

Every Sabbath he preached two, and sometimes three ser- 
mons, besides frequently teaching a Bible Class. 



JOSEPH MARTIN. 233 

In the Spring of 1896 he showed signs of a serious break- 
down. His friends urged him to take a rest, but he felt he 
must finish the College year, and his address to the graduating 
class that year was of unusual earnestness; indeed, the marked 
attention paid, and the silent tears of the audience, indicated 
that they feared these were to be his farewell words to the 
College and community. 

On July 30, 1896, his life's work was finished, and he entered 
into his well-earned rest at the age of fifty-eight years ; mourned 
liy a devoted family, a father who outlived him, a large circle 
of friends, theologians, educators, and the business world. 

Those who knew him best loved and honored him ; his theo- 
logical creed was short and simple ; faith in God and a life con- 
trolled by the precepts of His Son.

JOSEPH MARTIN. * 235 

She is a descendant of Lieut. Samuel Martin on two lines: 
through Joseph Martin (No. 44, page 16), first son of William 
r Seaborn) Martin, and through Caleb Martin (No. 46, page 
16), third son of William (Seaborn) Martin. 

The public are familiar with many of her historical and 
genealogical works. 

She is assistant secretary of the Cowles Family Associa- 
tion, and has been engaged for several years in bringing the rec- 
ords of that family down to date. She is now on the eighth 
volume, and the work seems to be apparently only well under 
way. 

Besides writing a history of Peacham, Vt., that community 
is indebted to her for being instrumental in placing "Markers" 
on the graves of those veterans of the Revolutionary War, who 
died and wxre buried at Peacham, and in the laborious task of 
collecting and preserving the war records of these noble patriots. 
She resides at Plymouth, Mass.
