PREFACE. 



It is now more than thirty-two years since the compiler of this Genealogy was first 
led into an investigation of the Records by a natural curiosity to learn something about 
his ancestry. Having traced his own line back to the first of his ancestors who settled 
in this country, he felt a desire to continue these inquiries and gather from every source 
all that might be learned about the descendants of that original progenitor. The re- 
sult of this investigation, which represents the labor, in all that time, of more than 
four years, will be found in this volume, which has been printed not only with the hope 
that it will prove interesting to those of the compiler's kindred now living, but also 
with the expectation that some copies, at any rate, will be preserved on the family 
tables, or on the shelves of the more public town and district libraries, to meet the eyes 
of future generations of this name, and excite iu them a desire to know something about 
the history of their family. 

The origin of this surname is clearly enough shown in its form, which has existed 
now for more than thirty generations, or ever since surnames began to be established, 
and is well rendered in the old English Records by the Latin form Pauper, as, for in- 
stance, Roger le Pauper or Roger le Poer, the famous Bishop of Salisbury, whose mon- 
nment may still be seen iu the beautiful cathedral which he fonnded but did not live to 
see finished, the exquisite spire of which, rising to a height of over four hundred feet, 
overlooks old Sarum, once a crowded city under the Saxon rule, now an uninhabited 
hill< and the great Salisbury Plain with its mysterious ruins of Stonehenge and its 
mounds and rings, memorials of a still older period, when the druids offered up their 
sacrifices and the native Britons sought vainly to withstand the steady march of the 
disciplined Roman legions ; while close at hand, within a short walk from the cathedral 
city, on the banks of a quiet stream, lies Ambrosebury, Ambresbury or Amesbury, 
whence our New England town took its name, and where once lived a Philip le Poer 
the ancestor of the present well-known English family of Poore, whose seat is now at 
RHshall in the same county of Wilts. Both iu England and in this country the name 
has been variously spelled, as Poor, Poore, Poer and eveu Power. The more common 
form, however, seems to have been Poore. 

Without being able to state definitely from what place in old England our first Now 
England ancestor came, there are some circumstances, at least, which lead to the sup- 
position that we may look to Wiltshire, or its neighboring county Hampshire, for the 
immigrant's birth-place. Chief Justice Samuel Scwall, in a letter writteu in 1G84-5, 
to his uncle Stephen Dummer, theu liviug in Bishopstoke, a parish of Hampshire, close 

(iii) 



IV PREFACE. 

to the southeastern borders of Wiltshire, wrote, "we are in good health here in 
Boston ; so our friends at Newbury are as far as I know. John Poor of the Neck 
died the beginning of this winter." [N. E. Hist. Gen. Reg., Vol. IX, p. 287.] 
And we find that Alice Poore, aged 20, Samuel Poore, aged 18, and Daniel Poore, 
aged 14 years, all came together with the family of Stephen Dummer in the Bevis, 
from the port of Southampton, England, in 1638, while tradition says that our 
' ancestor, John Poore, and the above mentioned Samuel, who settled in Newbury, 
Daniel, who took up his abode in Andover, and a Thomas, wliom we find to have been 
certainly a brother of Daniel, and who died in Andover without issue, were 
all brothers. 

As the name of Stephen Dummer's wife, at the time of the immigration, was Alice, 
we may conjecture that these children were akin to her and perhaps orphans under 
the guardianship of her and her husband. Be this as it maj^ there seems enough to 
warrant the hope that a careful search among the records of the parish of Bishopstoke, 
or of some of the parishes in its neighborhood, both in Hampshire and Wiltshire, 
may throw light upon the parentage of John Poore, and perhaps connect him with the 
Ambresbury family. And in this connection it should be remembered that the parish 
of Andover lies in Hampshire, not very far from Bishopstoke, and connected by an 
easy road with Salisbury, so that the New England pilgrim to the "old home" beyond 
the sea, while riding out to Stonehenge, may almost fancy himself in our own Essex 
county as he passes by a familiar looking guide-post standing at the cross road which 
informs him that Andover lies to the northeast, while the little town of Amesbury, 
already mentioned, lies but a short distance to the westward. 

The endeavor has been made to render this work authentic and complete, and, to 
that end, the proofs as they have come from the printer's hands have been transmitted 
to the various families for inspection and revision, and it is hoped that it will prove as 
nearly correct as a work of this nature can be. 
* The arrangement of families is in a natural order, and the various sizes and positions 
of the type indicate the different generations, rendering it easily understood, a system 
which, although unique, Avill be found not without utility. , 

The table of the first six generations on page 134, and the compound triune index to 
the work will be found, it is to be hoped, of great value. 

In conclusion, the compiler is desirous of expressing his sincere gratitude towards 

those who have assisted in the collecting of these records, and his earnest hope that all 

his kindred and patrons will take as much pleasure in the perusal of this work as he 

has taken in its prejjaration.

Salem, Mass., Christmas, 1880. 



JOHN POORE AND HIS FAMILY. 




'OIIN" POORE, tlie patriarch of one stock of his name, came, 
according to Mr. Coffin in his history of Newbnry, from "Wilt- 
shire, England, in 1635, which was the next year after several 
families — wlio that year also settled in IS^ewbnry — came to 
Ipswich. 

According to depositions on file in the office of the Essex 
Connty Court, he was born about 1615, consequently he was 
about twenty years old when he came to this country. 

After a careful examination of the recoi-ds of the State, Counties, Towns 
and Churches in Massachusetts, we conclude that he was the earliest of his 
family name who came to America. 

He settled upon the southerly side of Parker Piver in ISTewbiny, Massa- 
chusetts, that part of the town being called the "Neck." The street leading 
over Parker River to Rowley was laid out as far as his house through the 
north part of his land, then it turned westward. 

The lot east of John Poo re's was, from generation to generation, occupied 
by the Thurston family. ISText east of Thurston's lot, and on the end of 
the Neck, was the homestead of the Plummer family. Through these es- 
tates is a street extending by the south side of ]Mr. Poore's house and the 
Thurston and Plummer houses, to the end of the ISTcck. The lot west of 
Poore's was owned by the Ilalc family; all of these lots extend across 
the Neck from Parker River to the Marshes, which lie between this upland

and Plumb Island River. He had laid out to him by Rowley, in 1661, about 
thirty acres of upland, at a place in that towu called " The Island beyond 
the Cow Bridofe Meadow." 

The house which he built, together with additions, is still standing, and 
has been owned by the family, from father to son, until this time (1878), 
eight generations having been born in it, the eighth and ninth generations 
now residing there. 

At times the old mansion has been used as an Inn. It is on the ancient 
highway leading to Rowley, and about four miles southward from Market 
Square, and Stations on the Boston & Maine and Eastern Railroads in 
iNewburyport. * 

By the. records of the county we find that he was on the jury in the 
years 1654, 1658, 1661, 1664, 1665, 1670, 1674, 1678. He was attorney for 
Daniel Poore, of Andover, who, it is supposed, waajii^jbrother when said 
Daniel had a cause against Jo. Godfrey, March 26, 1667, and Walter 
"Wright, March, 1681. 

In the Registry of Deeds, at Salem, may be found sundry lists of those 
who took the oath of fidelity. The age of each iJ^ewbury man was given in 
a list for 1678. On this latter, appears the name of John Poore, aged 63. 

He was chosen by the town to occupy various places of trust; for in- 
stance, in 1666 and 1669, he was on the board "to act the prudentialls of 
the Town." When the seats in the meeting-house were assigned in 1668, 
it is recorded that "John Poor, sen"" to sit in the fore seat." 

He had land given by the town from time to time, and bought other land ; 
so, he owned in ITewbury and Rowley probably over a hundred acres; but, 
the supposition is that it was conveyed to his sons before his decease, as 
we find the deeds of some of it on record, viz. : to his sons John and 
Henry, dated not long before his decease. ' 

By an inventory of his personal estate we find the date of his decease 
to be " about " IS'ovember 21, 1684. Tradition says that he was out hunting, 
and losing his way, perished by cold and hunger in the woods near An- 
dover. On file in the ofiice of Clerk of the Coui-ts in Essex County, 
Volume XLIII, page 73, in the report of the jury of inquest, summoned to 
inquire into the cause of his death, dated Kov. 24th, in the year of our Lord 



MEMOIR. Y 

1684, wc find (lie followinj^ verdict: — "AVe judge tliat being in the woods 
and following his game, he Avas bewildered, and lost liimself, and in his pur- 
suit plucked off his clothes, and scattered them some good distance, one 
part from another till he had left nothing on save his wastcoat and drawers, 
and breeches and hose and shoocs." 

We find no will on record; but, it seems he had made a verbal disposition 
of some of his estate. Among the papers on file in the Probate Office it is 
stated that before the balance of his estate was divided among the heirs, 
£30 was " to be abated for debts & legacyes." 

Wc discover on the back of an account of the Administrators, rendered 
November 26, 1697, that his heirs among whom his estate was divided were 
the widow and seven children, viz. : John Poor, the eldest son Henry, Jo- 
seph, Hannah Ilsly, Sarah, Mary Clark, Lydia Titcum and Abigail Ilsly. 

The name of his wife, by whom he had his children, was Sarah ; and that 
appears as the name of his widow, after his decease; and widow Sarah 
Poore died Dec. 3, 1702. But we are luiable to give the maternal ancestry 
of his children.

was frequently called to offices of trust in his native })lace, as overseer of 
wills, and appraiser of estates; was tything-man many years and constable 
to collect taxes, etc- 

He probably bought or sold but little real estate during his life; but his

mentions his wife Mary, and all his children excepting his first born, who 
died in infancy. He gave his homestead to his son Jonathan, with a provis- 
ion that he pay the debts and legacies thereof. 7- / , 

He married February 27, 1665, Mary, daughter of William and Joanna 
(Bartlett) Titcomb, born February ^7, 16^4, and she was alive in 1700, 
when she sold to her son-in-law, Joseph Morse, her interest in the estates 
of her imcle, John Bartlett, and cousin, John Bartlett. Her mother was 
daughter of Richard Bartlett, Sr., of Newbury, and the Titcomb and Bart- 
lett kin, of whom she was a descendant, have resided in Newbury and vi-

lOMTHAlJ', THE SIXTH CHILD OF ]0H1I= (page 9), OF JOHI'. 

^j|01SrATHA;Nr^ bom Feb. 25, 1678, settled on the old homestead at 
^M| Newbury I^^eck, where his children were born, and where he died, 
(s^mI June 30, 1742. He was a juryman most of the time for many years, 
until just previous to his decease. On important committees, tything-man 
and one of the selectmen of the town. 

About the time of his father's decease, he became of age. At this time 
he engaged in the real estate business, which he followed during the re- 
mainder of his life. In this respect he Avas more like his uncle Joseph, than 
his father and grandfather. He sold to his uncle Joseph Morse, a right in 
a "Rate Lott," that had belonged to his grandfather, in 1701. He bought A 

of J. Wainright, on the JS'eck by Rowley, that had been owned by his grand- ! 

father and uncles Plenry and Joseph Poore, in 1702, and sold it to his brother V. 

John Poore, in 1705. He exchanged land with Ezckiel Northend, in 1706. " 

He bought of Joseph Ilsley, in 1711. He with Hale, Thurston and Plumers j 

of the JS'eck, sold their right in common lands on the JS'eck to the Plumers, 
in 1715. He bought of Thomas Palmer and Jonathan Hopkinson, two par- 
cels of land in Rowley, 1716. He sold to John Stewart, land in Rowley,

removed to Camirton, N. II., where her father had one liundred acres of 
hind, the use of which he gave to liis daughter dunng her fife; and after 
her decease, to her chikh'en. Here, their other chikh-en were horn. During 
the first of their residence in Campton, they occupied a ])lace in the south- 
ernniost part of the town; and previously to tlie marriage of their daugl)ter 
Lydia II., they had removed ahout four mik^s to the northward, and were 
occupying hmd that belonged to the husband of their daughter Mary, south 
and near to the residence of Mrs. AVillcy. Ilei-e, on the morning of Mai-ch

j)lectic fit, and immediately expired. 

After the decease of her husband, Mrs. Butler went to live with the fam- 
ily of her daughter Mary. A few months after this, she was stricken with 
paralysis, from the efiects of Avhich she never recovered. I^ot long after- 
Avards she was removed to the home of hei- daughter, Lydia, where she lived 
over a year, being then removed into the family of her daughtei" Betsey, iii 
which she ended her long and useful life on March 22, 1843. "We are in- 
formed by her grandchildren, that up to the age of the common lot of man, 
she was possessed of uncommon abilities, and was truly a helpmeet to her 
husband. 

Before his marriage to the subject of our sketch, Mr. Butler had a daugh- 
ter Fanny, who was born on the 23d of October, 1783. "We have been 
unable to learn the mother's maiden name, but have understood that she had 
previously been married to a seaman by the name of Newman. This 
daughter married Jonathan, son of Thomas and Dorothy (Blaisdell) Bart- 
lett, born at Campton, about 1782 ; his ancestors, however, had lived on the 
Merrimack, near its mouth, from the early settlement of the country. lie 
was a kin to Josiah Bartlett, one of the signers of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence. 

Fanny's posterity consists of fourteen children, about three dozen grand- 
children, and at this time her great-grand-children numl^er about the same 
as her children. They are the fruit of the following eight children, viz. :

THE JOHN PC) ORE MANSION. 

Occupied by him and eiglit consecutive generations, in one line of his descendants about 240 years ; in which have 
been born about thiee score of ihe ancient patriarch's progeny. The junior Samuel's son Alfred with his two sons 
John Lawrence and Alfred Wesley, of the last two generations, reside there in 1S81. 

In the beginning it consisted of one square room on the ground and chamber over it, wuh chimney on the eastern 
end, without at first any finish inside. Jonathan, son of John and grandson of the progenitor, built the eastern end 
of the main part and finished the inside of the whole house. Subsequently the lean-to was added to the back side. 
Lastly the singular projection at the south western corner w.is .annexed by John of the fourth generation, who kept 
the ferry over the river Parker, which flows by the north end of the farm, and about sixty or eighty rods from this 
house, and perhaps this room was where he took toll, and it may be this John's son Jonath.an used it for his office 
etc., when he was an inn-keeper, (after his neighbor Hale gave up the business,) this being the half-way house between 
Newburyport and Rowley — handy for freight teamsters and others on the highway between the East and Boston, to 
drop in and " wet their whistle " in dusty summer or " warm up " in cold winter. .So when Reed of Newburyport 
photographed it, the old tavern sign was erected for the occasion, but the last four generations have not used it, as 
about the time of the decease of Jonathan the Newburyport and Boston turnpike was built, and drew travel from 
this way.

DABIEL', SOU OF lOHATHAB' (5. 10), MN', MU.' 

^AISTIEL*, born in Newbury, Mass., March 13, 1716. Settled in Haver- 
hill, Mass., on land given by his father — Avherc his great-grandson, 
Jeremiah T. Poor, in 1878, owns and occupies. It is in that part of 
old Haverhill which fell into the State of New Hampshire, when the present 
line of the state, which was located three miles from the Merrimack river in 
1741, was established. That territory being called Haverhill District for a 
while, then incorporated by the name of Plaistow, and in 1765, that part of 
the town was incorporated by the name of Atkinson, and this faiTi is very 
near the south line; next to said Haverhill, which in 1869 Avas incoi-porated 
a city. 

He bnilt his house about a dozen rods north of the street which runs from 
the church in the old north paiish of Haverhill, by the south side of his 
farm, over Providence Hill to old Londonderry; and near the east side of 
the street which extends from said Londonderry street, to the church in 
Atkinson. 

Ilis brother John commenced clearing off the old forest in order to settle 
here, but it was concluded that he should remain with his father; so Daniel 
ventured to settle upon this wild land, was an enterprising man; an offi- 
cer in the militia, etc. He settled most of his sons on farms, but let his 
youngest son have the advantage of being graduated at College. 

Besides the homestead given him by his father, he owned land adjoining, 
and in other localities. The first found on record is the Half-moon meadow, 
bonght of James White; next, he purchased of Thomas Pope, jr., in 1750, 
forty -four acres; of Joseph Page, in 1752, ten acres; and about the same 
time, some more joining the above of John Currier and Col. Atkinson; of 
Joseph Merrill, in 1755, forty acres, situated in Bedford, N. H. ; of Nathan- 
iel Merrill in same year, fifty acres in Plaistow; of John Watts in 1758, 
about four and one-half acres; of Joshua Webster in 1759, his right in 
nine and one-half acres; of Jonathan Clements in 1764, fifty-two acres on 
Chester road; of Stephen Knight same year, twenty-six acres adjoining his 
land; of Jonathan Sawyer in 1771, about six and five-eighths acres, situated 
on the town line partly in Atkinson and partly in Haverhill; of Charles

Johnson in the spring of 1769, over sixty-seven acres in Hampstead, which 
bordered upon Island Pond ; and of Thomas Woodbury in 1763, his right 
to some land which had been laid out in Perrytown, to one Stephen Poor. 
He also took a deed from Moses Belknap in 1759, of forty acres on Hog Hill 
road, and deeded it back in 1763 ; and of Stephen Whitticker for forty-two 
acres with mills on Providence Brook in 1765, and deeded it back in 1767. 
And, he conveyed away to Eben Johnson in 1757, fifty-five acres; to his 
son Daniel Poore in 1771, fourteen acres of the Jonathan Clement land on 
Chester road, and in 1781, forty acres more; to sou Jonathan Poore in 1781, 
forty acres more of the Clement land, and parcels of twenty-three acres, 
seven and three-quarters acres, and twenty-nine acres; to son David Poore 
in 1781, his land in Hampstead by Island Pond; and to son Jeremiah Poore 
in 1781 and 1791, several parcels, to the amount of over 100 acres, and the 
buildings — including the homestead.

cestor as we suppose, of most, if not all in the United States who bear the 
name of Merrill. Mrs. Poore's brother, James Merrill, settled near them. 
By his first wife he had his children. On the 21th of Feb., 1782, he married 
Miss Lydia Bradley of Haverhill, who survived him but nine days, aged 73 
years. He died Jan. 9, 1792, after making his will the 8th of July, 1791,

JESSE'', bora Nov. 25, 1782, who some years i)revious to his marriage 
Ijought a farm on the southeast side of Captain's Pond, in the West 
Parish of Haverhill, about five and a half miles from the City Ilall, and 
near to Methuen on the southwest; it being partly in Salem, iS\ II., and 
running back very near to Atkinson, the house being about a dozen rods 
north of the street, on an elevation about ninety rods from the pond. It is

and died; also nearly opposite where his sister Anna first resided after 
marriage. The house is the oldest on the street ; the west end of it was 
built first; the east end added some years after, and lastly a leanto was 
built upon the north side. There was a school kept in the westerly 
part of this house, about the year 1800. 

The highway on which this place is situated, has been named by the city. 
Liberty Street, but anciently the lower end of it (which at first had many 
short curves) was sometimes called by the name of " Pig-tail lane," and that 
part which extends by this place over to and beyond the Spickct, has been

called Wheeler Street. It was laid out by the town as a public way from 
Old Spicket Path (now called Broadway) up to ]^. H. line, near the dwelling 
house of Benjamin Wheeler (place now owned by Leverett B. Emerson, 
whose father Leonard had it after Abner Wheeler), ISTov. 13, 1740, and 
about 1830 it Avas widened and somewhat straightened. This street was, 
however, settled upon up as far as this place, about ten years before. The 
Greenleafs of Newburyport owned much of the land both sides of it, had a 
house built near the lower end, where the late Samuel E. Greenleaf resided; 
next above, Ebenezer Bailey from Bradford (now Groveland) built where 
his grandson John (in 1878) resides. The next early settlements above 
Mr. Bailey's were upon Sweet Hill, viz. : on the south side of the street, by 
Humphrey Bailey from Bradford, who in a few years after removed to 
Hopkinton, N. H., and some years after it was bought by Jedediah Petten- 
gill; on the north side by John Stewart (as mentioned on a page above), 
which loea. Joseph Webster bought a few years after the Stewarts had left 
it, and there raised his large family. 

This farm where Mr. Poore resided as long as he lived, is the westerly part 
of what said Stewart owned, and the homestead of Dea. John Smith, which 
he purchased May 22, 1738— same day said Benj. Wheeler bought on 
the west side of it. Said Stewart, Smith and Wheeler came up from the 
upper part of Kowley, which is now Georgetown. The other residences on 
the street are more modern, viz.: one owned by Gilman Stickney was 
brought on to that place about 1840, and afterward owned some years by 
Jesse Atwood. The place at the entrance of the old Rose Meadow Way 
was owned by above said Dea. Smith, and given to his son John, who left 
it to his nephew, Capt. Jesse, son of Thomas Smith, who has of late sold 
out, and built near the church. The cottage in the valley between his house 
and the Pettengill places, was built about 1860, by Capt. Smith, to accom- 
modate his hired servants. Only the Ebenezer Bailey place remains in the 
family of the original settlers on this street, from Atwood's corner on 
Broadway, to the corner west of the 

Spicket River, a distance of about three ^^/^^tCi^^/^ 'f^v;:''^^^ 

miles. His signature. ^^y 

Besides being a farmer, he was a 
cordwainer, and taught all his sons the same trade. He was very quiet in 
all his actions during life. His complexion light, with blue eyes, rather 
below medium in stature, but passed a satisfactory examination when he 
Avas called to go into the army, in the war of 1812-5, and Avent to Ports- 
mouth, N. H., and stayed awhile to guard that port. 



POSTKIUTY OF DANlEl/, OF ATKINSOlSr. 99 

He marrifd Apr. 1(3, 1817, a cousin to John Pettengill, Inisljand of his 
cklewt sister's danghter, Sally, daughter of AVoodbridge and Xabljy (Lowell) 
Bailey, b. on Broadway, in the easterly part of Ayers Village, in Haverhill, 
about three-quarters of a mile south of their residence — see her i)edigree, 
page 115 of our Historic-Genealogical Researches. He deceased July 19, 
18-17, and she remains (Jan. 27, 1879) on this place. Children: 

ALFRED ^ born Feb. 27, 1818; having never married, he now calls his 
birthplace home — which is near Ayers Village, a branch jx^st-ollice in 
Haverhill; but, as his opportunity of obtaining an education was limitt'd 
while in his teens to about ten weeks in the yearly winter seasons, at No. 9 
District School in that town, he was ])ermitted to attend Atkinson xVcademy 
awhile (during the last term John Kelly, Esq. Avas its Preceptor), and 
thereby having obtained a lai-ger desire for a more liberal education ; he has 
since been a wayfarer much of the time. He left home for the first time 
to be gone over the Sabbath, in the early jiart of 181:0, and attended the 
"Bradford Teachei's' Seminary," Avhich was opened the 4th of Dec, the 
previous year, by Benj. Greenleaf, Esq. (a native of said School District 
No. 9), the author of a series of mathematics, and foi-mer Principal of 
Bradford Academy; while in that school he went over various branches of 
education, becoming much interested in the natural sciences, and, in order 
to inform himself more fully in Anatomy and Phj^siology, obtained 
access to the library of George Cogswell, M.D. (a native of the town where 
said Alfred's father was born), who then had several students under instruc- 
tion in his profession, and became so intei-estcd that he attended the 
course of lectures in the medical dei)artment of Daitmouth College, in 181.j, 
and while there was favored with the exti-a attention given to botany (one 
of his favoi-ite studies) by Prof. Phelps, wdao took the class into the fields, 
Avhere the plants grew — the same method of gaining knowledge in different 
departments of Natural History adopted by the Essex Institute, of Salem, 
]\Iass. The Institute visit aboiit half a dozen places during the warm 
season each year, and print their jDroceedings on those excursions in 
their monthly Bulletin. 

In 184(3 he commenced an inquiry respecting his ancestry, and step by 
step obtained the direct line on his paternal and maternal side back to the 
first settler in America. Next came a desire to obtain all the descendants 
of each of those two ancestors, and afterward to trace l)ack to the first settle- 
ment in this country the lines of his two grandmothers, and all his great- 
grandmothers, and by so doing he has found, now, that he is akin to a vast 
number of the families bearing the names of the early settlers of Newbury 
and Rowley, and their descendants in other towns hi Merrimack Valley. 



100 JOHN POOEE AND HIS FAMILY. 

About the middle of Jan., 1847, when in the East Parish of Bradford 
(incorporated in 1850 by the name of Groveland), he met Peter Parker (a 
brother of Dr. Cogswell's first wife) at his variety goods store on the 
corner by the church in that parish, who informed him that his (Peter's) 
employee Eben Jaques had suddenly deceased a few days previous, and 
asked said Alfred if he would come down and assist him in his business 
for awhile. He complied, and although at the time he did not expect to 
continue with him, remaiued there about ten years, and during the time 
boarded in the family of Dea. Ira and Julia (Poore) Hopkinson  — • Mrs. 
Hopkinson, as he afterward learned, being akin to him. 

While in Groveland, he collected materials for a minute history of the 
place, including a genealogy of the fiunilies who have resided there since 
the town of Bradford was settled. 

After leaving Groveland he continued his researches in regard to the 
history and genealogy of families in Bradford, Boxford, and other towns 
adjoining, and resided in the west part of Andover some months in 1864. 

The last day of Jan., 1865, he left home to spend a few weeks in Salem, 
Mass , in order to examine the Essex County records found in offices in the 
stone building built in 1841, on the corner of Federal and Washington 
Streets, at the northern end of the tunnel of the Eastern Railroad, inider the 
last-mentioned street; but finding such an extensive opportunity to acquire 
information from these records, and the library of the Essex Institute — of 
which institution he has made himself a life-member, and by associating with 
so many there found, who are interested in historical and genealogical ro 
searches and in scientific investigations, he has remained in the quiet old 
city until Feb. 19, 1879, and has, for most of the time, since returning from 
his mother's, Thanksgiving time in 1865, lodged on the premises of 
Matthew Adams Stickney, on the southwesterly side of Boston Street, not 
far from the big Elm tree standing in the street about midway betAveen " the 
Square " in Peabody, and the above said record building; and spent his days 
in studying the records in the Court House. But to complete his gene- 
alogies he has had occasion to visit all the towns in Essex County, and in the 
southern pai't of Rockingham County, and to make tours in other parts of 
Mass., ]^ew Hampshire, and other states, to examine records of counties, 
towns, churches, and families; also during this time he has visited Boston 
on several three months' Eastern Railroad tickets, to search the State 
Archives and other places in and about the city, doing his best that this 
genealogy might be as nearly perfect as possible.

mile from the line of Derry, and two and a half miles from the line of 
Chester; and added other lands to his estate. One of his farms (afterward 
owned by Hugh Mills) was in Derry. His 

homestead was on the main highway lead- e^/tyt/U^ tP^^^^*?-^

EEMRY, THE SECOND SON OF THE PATFJAECH. 

i'ENRY^, bom December 13, 1650; settled at first on the south border 
of Ncwbui'y, and we find on the records of that town the births of 
seven of his eleven children. The land which he occupied was partly 
in the adjoining town of Rowley, and was given to him by his father 
in 1678, and it was about one mile in a south-westerly direction from his 
birth place. He sold the place to his brother Joseph Poore in 1693, and in 
the same year bought of John Pearson another one in the west jDart of 
Rowley where his other children were born, and which some of his descend- 
ants in 1879 occupy. This land is not so productive as that on Newbury 
Neck, but clearer from boulders, and much easier to till, and it seems to 
have been a healthy place for him; for he lived to be over ninety years of age. 
Among his transactions in real estate, and found on record, were, besides 
the sale of his first homestead and purchase of his last place, he sold a rate 
lot in Newbury to Jonathan and Nathan "VVheelcr in 1702; two acres in 
Rowley to Joseph Boynton, senior, m 1714 ; about five acres in Rowley to 
Acquilla Jewett in 1724; two lots in Rowley to Daniel Thurston of New- 
bury in 1726; a river lot in Newbury to Samuel and Elcazer Pcirce of New- 
bury in 1737 ; and deeded to his son Samuel his real estate January 14, 1728-9, 
including rights that should come to him by virtue of his *' going to ye 
Narraganset War;" and gave to his son Benjamin forty acres November 
4, 1829 — which he acknowledged March 27, 1740-1. And among family 
papers not in Registry of Deeds, we find he bought a one and one-quarter 
acre lot of Thomas Nelson in 1687; and nine and one-half acres of Ben-

Among his public acts we observe that in the time of King Phillip's war 
he was pressed into the Army December 6, 1675; and, ii may be supposed 
by the reading of the deed to son Samuel, that he there did service for his 
country, lie was made a Freeman March 7, 1680-1 ; was chosen at various 
times one of the Tything men in Rowley, and filled oflSces that were neces- 
sary foi" the locality where he resided; Avas overseer of the will of Daniel 
Thurston, and at other times assisted in settling estates of deceased persons.

136 JOHN POORE AND HIS FAMILY. 

Among the ancient papers which have been handed down in tlie family 
from generation to generation, we find a bond of his sons Benjamin and 
and Samuel, dated IN^ovember 5, 1737, in which they agree that yearly, Ben- 
jamin will half the time, and that Samuel will the other half keep their 
father during the remainder of his natural life. And a will made by him 
April 2, 1741, in which he names his son Benjamin who was to have the 
easterly part of his living; son Samuel who was to have all the rest of his 
real estate and be executor of the will; daughters Abigail, Mary, Hannah, 
Sarah, Elizabeth and Lydia, — the latter we may suppose was the widow of 
his son Jeremiah who had deceased; and grandson David Poore, who, wo 
suppose, was the son of Henry, who had deceased. But as there is no 
record of the settlement of his estate in the Registry of Probate, we suppose 
the family settled it privately. We here 
give a facsimile of his signature to a re- y/^ 

ceipt which he and his wife gave to her '^ ^^ ■ii/ ^J^ 

brother Thomas Hale, for what they 
received of her father's estate dated July 21, 1698. 

He married Sept. 12, 1679, Abigail, daughter of Thomas Hale, jr., born in 
ISTewbury, Apr. 8, 1662, who died it -seems, some time previous to 1729, as 
there is no mention of her in the deed to son Samuel that year. Her father 
was son of Thomas and Thomasin Hale, and born in England about 1633, 
and her mother Mary, a daughter of Richard and Alice (Bosworth) Hutchin- 
son, baptized in ^N'orth Mushham, Co. jS"otts, England, Dec. 28, 1630. Mrs. 
Poore therefore was a cousin to the father of Rebecca, wife of his nephew 
Jonathan Poore. Children: 

1. Abigail, I3. Sept. 9, 1680, whose intention of maiTii\ge to John Fislve, was Dec. 22, 1710, 

and previous to Apr. 15, 1746, had tnanied for her second husband Thomas Holt of 
Andovcr, but probably she left no posterity. 

2. Henry, born January 31, 1681 ; married Mary Holmes. See page 138. 

3. Jeremiah, b. Jan. 10, 1683 ; m. Apr. 27, 1709, Lydia, a daughter of Peter Cheney, and 

died a young man, as his widow liad married previous to Dec. 5, 1738, Samuel Plum- 
mer, and perhaps out-lived him and died very aged, as we are led to suppose by what 
may be learned from papers in the famil}^ 

4. Mary, born April 10, 1686, who died in infancy.

5. Mary, b. Sept. 20, 1C87; in. June 2, 1713, Abiali.iin Thurley, and perhaps out-lived liiiii, 

and before 1737 married a man by tiic name of Jlorrison. Slie perhaps Iiad a daughter 
Mary wlio m. a Joseph Woodman before 173G ; but we fmd no births of children on 
tlie records of either Rowley or Newbury, or settlement of Mr. TIiurle3''s estate in 
Essex Count}-, so we presume she had only one child. 

6. Hannah, b. July 19, 1692 ; m. (1) Sept. 30, 1714, Samuel, the youngest son of John and 

Mary (I'oore) Noyes, b. in Newburj', Essex Co., Mass., Feb. 5, 1C92, and died iu 
Abington, Plymouth Co., Mass. (where he and his elder brother Nichol.as settled) Nov. 
6, 1729, his father John was the eldest son of Dea. Nicholas and Sarah (Cutting) 
Noyes, of Newbury, from whom descended the other Noyeses, who have uitcrniarried 
with other branches of the family- mentioned on page eightj'-tbrce, etc. His mother 
Mary, no doubt, was of the stock of Daniel Poore, who settled in Andover. After 
Mr. Noyes deceased, and previous to Oct. 8, 1742, she m. (2) Jacob Reed, probably of 
Abington. Several of her posterity' by the name of Noyes, still reside in Abington, 
and we learn from the recorils of that town that she had by Mr. Noyes : 
I. Samuel, b. Sept. 19, 1715, who m. March 3, 173C-7, Rebecca Harden, and Iiad Nath.-niiel, b. 1738:

in the settlement of his father's estate. 

11. Samuel, bom April 28, 1706 ; married Elizabeth Searl. See page 199. 

12. Lydia, her birth not found on record ; but Henry Poore, father to the above children, 

mentions last in his will daughter Lydia, but we are inclined to suppose he meant his 
son Jeremiah's widow. 



HEMY', THE SECOM CHILD OP HE1JRY= (p. 135), JOHN'. 

jENRY^, born in Newbury, January 31, 1681, being the second child 
of his parents; married probably in the spring of 1703, to a Mary 
i^ Hohnes, of Newbury, as Ave find a record of their intention of mar- 
riage in both Rowley and Newbury, dated April 6, 1703. Probably she was 
a widow, and a daughter of Peter Cheney, for we find among the family 
papers a receipt of said Cheney, dated August 11, 1710, in which he called 
Henry Poor his son; and the receipt was for keeping a child of his said son 
a considerable time. So, taking into consideration the above circumstance, 
we conclude that Henry died about the time his third child was born. His 
children were: 

1. Joshua, b. in Eowley, Mar. 14, 1703-4 ; who no doubt died very young. 

2. Daniel, b. in Rowley, Nov. 12, 1706 ; who, we suppose, also died young. 
3.- David, b. about 1708 ; whose wife was Tamzeu in 1740.

bis master five years; aiuT Aug. 28, 1728, was in Ivowloy, when lie dated a 
receipt he then gave his grandfather Poore, for personal jjiopcrty he received 
of his father's estate; and in 1744 gave receipt to his uncles, Benjamin and 
Samuel Poore, for all demands he had against them for his interest in the 
estates of his father Henry, and grandfather Henry Poore, at which time he 
was of Sudbury, Middlesex County, Mass., and called himself a tailor. 

"While in Middlesex County, and living in 
Sudbury, he bought of B. Parmenter, a house /Jf ^vtv-zJy /^^'^'T^^'C-. 
and forty acres of land, situated upon the ^ 

wegt side of Sudbury River, in the town of Sudbury, Aug. 1, 1740. Sold 
meadow to the manufiicturing company (one of the members of the 
company then being Eobert Hale, of Beverly), in 1740 and 1742. Sold to 
P, Goodenow a house and land on the west side of the liver in 1741; 
to M. Maynard, west meadow on the west side of the river in 1741 ; to J. 
Carter in 1741; to T. Bent in 1742 and 1743; to P. GJoodenow and F. Par- 
menter in 1745; and to D. Goodenow in Dec. 17ol. During this period 
from 1740 to 1751, his wife's name was Tamzen, or Tamasin. He moved to 
"Winchendon, Mass., about 1754, when his son David was about 14 or 10 
years of age; the place where he lived, we are informed, is in the north- 
western section of the town, where Albert Mann resides in 1878. The name 
and parentage of the mother of his children are as yet unknown; jierhaps 
she was the Tamasin who was living with him in Sudbury from 1740 to 1751. 
We understand that he had two or more children, viz. : 

1. David, who tradition says was born about 1740, and married Jane Martin. 

2. Benjamin, wlio perhaps was the one who was residini^ in New Salem, in llic western pait of 

Massacliusetts, about 1770 ; but upon applying to the elcrk ol" that town was inlbrnied 
that the records of the place were burnt a few years since, so tiiat we liavc not any 
records from that place. We hear from tradition that he settled somewhere in Ver- 
mont, perhaps he went thence from New Salom. I'robably he had no sons, for we 
have not discovered any by the name who trace their line back to him.

he settled, and his eight children were born there. In the time of the American 
Revolution he Avas a brave soldier; continuing in the Army most of the 
time during the war, and was an officer in a company; at one time was a 
prisoner on Long Island, where he was confined about three years; but lived 
to be over threescore and ten years of age, when he died about the latter 
part of 1816. He m. (1) Miss Jane Martin, by whom he had his children. 
She died of a cancer in Winchendon, July 27, 1803; m. (2) a widow, Ellen 
Mathews, Oct. 7, 1803. Children: 

1. William, b. Feb. 27, 1763 ; m. Elizabeth Blanuhard and a widow Nurse. 

2. Daniel, whose intention of marriage to Polly Martin, of Westminster, was recorded IJ|C. 

1, 1798; resided in Winchendon, Mass., where eight children were born; and abont 
1825, we understand he left that place, and some say that he resided awhile in Keene, 
N. H., or in that vicinit}-, and afterward removed over into Vermont, and lived some- 
where on the east side of the Green mountains, but wc have not been able to find his 
descendants. His children were :

4. David, who probably never married ; but when considerably advanced in life joined a family 

of shakers in Ohio. 

5. Hannah, m. John Hayward. 

6. Lucy, m. an Ellis ; and we are informed that they lived in Broom, N. Y., and perhaps re- 

moved afterward West, as far as Ohio ; before they deceased, we hear that she had 
sons and daughters. 

7. Jane, m. Benjamin Berry, and we hear settled in Roylston, Mass., and perhaps she had 

about one and a half dozen children. 

8. Prudence, who was not capable of self care, died in Springfield, Vt., unm.

first child of his parents; married (1) in 1792, Elizabeth, a daughter 
of Benjamin Blanchard, in Rutland, Yt. their first child was born in the 
west part of that town; removed to the western part of l^ew York state, 
and resided in Avon, Livingstone County, until all but their last child was 
born, and returned to Rutland, where she died Feb. 3, 1813, which was a 
few days after their eldest daughter's decease of the prevailing epidemic. 
Consequently he broke up housekeeping, and his other children — says his

son Joshua, were early thrown out of then" nest, and began to scatter; two 
of the six sons iu tlicu- youth became preachers of the gospel, and the other 
four went to reside in "Chatauqua" County, N. Y.; finding the climate too 
cold Avent to the town of Windham, Portage Co., Oliio, aljout forty miles 
south of Cleveland, and their posterity now reside there and in other places 
in the Western states. 

Mr. Poore, after his wife died, went to visit his father in the place of his 
birth; became acquainted with his stepmother's widowed daughter, Mrs. 
Sally Nourse, had recorded on the town recoixls his intention of marriage 
to her Oct. 22, 1813; in due time they were married and undertook to take 
care of their aged parents, which they did to mutual satisfaction of all, and 
he died in the town of his birth Sept. 5, 1830. His children were: 

HANNAH^, born January 1, 1793; died unmarried February 3, 1813. 

AliANSON ', born January 20, 1796; who died in Hastings, Dekota Co., 
Minnesota, about 1878; had children — one, as we understand, named 
Edwin, who, they say, resides in 1879 in said Hastings. 

JOSHUA', born in Avon, N. Y., Dec. 21, 1797; married (1) October 11, 
1824, Kancy, daughter and sixth child of Dea. George and Abigail (Ray- 
mond) Coffin, b. in Winchendon, Mass., May 12, 1802; by whom he had his 
children. She died at Saratoga Sjn-ings, jS". Y., March, 1839; m. (2) June, 
1840, Miss Hannah, dan. of Isaac Mark, who died Apr. 9, 1875. Mr. Poore 
has met with many afflictions; but, he informs us that he received the evi- 
dence of his acceptance with God when about twelve years of age, no 
doubt, through the instrumentality of his pioits mother. Circumstances led 
him to join the Methodist Episcopal branch of the church June, 23, 1823; 
and he joined the New York conference May 9, 1825; that conference di- 
vided in 1832, and he fell into the Troy conference, and was in Feb., 1778, 
the oldest member but one of that body. He spent two years as agent of 
an Academy; four years Presiding Elder of Burlington district; ten years 
as President and in managing otherwise Troy Academy; and the rest of the 
time on circuits. His health has not permitted him to preach much of late, 
therefore, since Feb. 25, 18G8, has been living at North Yineland, N. J., 
where it is an agreeable place for his health, enjoying a peaceful evening tide. 
Children : 

WILLIAM GEORGE, b. in Bristol, VL, Sept. 30, 1825 ; who spent several 
years in New York City with R. C. Root ; died unmarried at Poultuey, Vt., Aug. 
1, 1856.

Mr. Murray was brought up by Evangelical parents ; joined a Baptist Church ; 
edited and published the Vermont Telegraph, the Baptist paper of Vermont

taught school three years, when about 20 to 23 years of age; then learned 
the ti'ade of a carpenter, and at the age of sixty, says he, "I donned the 
armor of a warrier to put down the Rebellion," and served in the 15th In- 
dependent Ohio Volunteer Battery, but stood it only about six months. 
After he recovered his health, he went into the wilds of Michigan, took up 
a homestead and lived upon it long enough to prove his claim, and on 
the same he had to pass the ordeal of that terrible fire we read of, which 
happened in Michigan in 1871, which accounts for the loss of his eye-sight.

uncle Samuel Poore, some marsh in Newbur}', and Avith Benjamin Poore 
(probably his brother), selling seven and a half acres of marsh situated in 
Newbury, to Dr. Matthew Adams in 1751:. Ilis real estate when he died

Mchitable, unm., and his last four sons all under age, to Avhom he gav^e his 
real estate. His Avidow made her Avill Dec. 22, 1781, Avhich Avas pi-oved

DAVID', SON OF DANIEL'^ (page lU), BENJAMIN', HENRY', JOHN." 

^■«k AVID '^ born in Rowley, March 18, 1748-9 ; was by trade a hou.gc- 
ytt Wright, and in his Uiter years was a farmer; always lived in the west- 
'-^ erly part of Rcrvvley; at first near the east side of Pentuclvct Pond 
and about a half mile northeasterly of the "corner," and the raih-oad junc- 
tion and on the southeast side of the Kewburyport branch of the railroad. 
This farm he bought of Abner Burbank the latter part of January, 1773, 
for one hundred and forty-six pounds, thirteen shillings, and four pence 
lawful money ; containing about twenty-nine acres, separated into two parts 
by the street, the northerly part was bounded as follows, viz.: "beginning 
at a stake and stones on the northerly side of Andover road to ye eastward 
of the dwelling house on said premises, which is a bound between this land 
and land belonging to the widow Abigail Perkins, thence running northerly 
upon said widow Perkins' land till it comes to Samuel Plumer's land, thence 
running westerly upon said Samuel Plumer's and the heirs of Thomas 
Plumer's land (late of said Rowley deceased), till it comes to the flume on 
the main brook that comes from Pentuckett Pond (so-called), and to a 
brook called Penn Brook; thence running southerly up said brook as the 
brook runs to the aforesaid Andover road; thence running easterly by said 
road to the first mentioned bound;" and that on the southerly side of the 
road leading to Andover was bounded commencing "near the northwest 
corner of the barn on said premises; then running easterly on the south- 
erly side of said road till it comes to Thomas Burpee's l^id; thence running 
southerly by said Burpee's land till it comes to a meadow belonging to John 
Pillsbury; thence running southerly upon said Pillsbury to Benjamin Wal- 
lingford's land; thence running westerly and northwesterly by said Walling- 
ford's to the aforesaid widow Perkins' land; thence northerl}'^ by said widoAvs 
land as ye fence now stands to a stake and stones against an orchai'd ; thence

and easterly as the fence now stands till it comes to Andover road aforesaid; 
thence running easterly to the bound first mentioned, and also the privilege 
of the well and yard round the above-said widow Perkins' house, which 
privilege is now in partnership;" and on the twentieth day of August, 1778, 
he (and wife Abigail giving up her right of dower), sold this farm to 
Thomas Burpee, Jr., for five hundred pounds lawful money, and then esti- 
mated it to contain about thirty acres. Where he resided during the five 
or more years next after he sold out to Burpee we are not informed, perhaps 
he hired a house for his family and was in the army or worked at his trade; 
but on the thirteenth day of January, 1783, he bargained for a farm owned 
by Jonathan Tyler, then of Rowley, and John Tyler of Boxford, which they 
acknowledged Jan. 21, 1794, and paid for it the sum of foiu' hundred and 
fifteen pounds, consisting of two pieces, and laid on the line of Boxford. 
One piece, contained about sixty acres with a house and barn thereon, 
bounded " beginning at the northwest corner at a stake and stones at the 
line between Rowley and Boxford; thence running southerly on said line 
to another stake and stones by land belonging to the heirs of Dea. Carlton, 
late of Bradford deceased; thence running southwesterly by said land 
through a small corner of the town of Boxford to another stake and stones 
by the country road ; thence running southeasterly by said road till it comes 
to land belonging to Mr. John Smith, to a stake and stones ; thence running 
easterly by said Smith's land to a stake and stones; from thence running north- 
easterly across the brook on a straight line to the southwest corner of some 
land belonging to Thomas Stickney of Bradford, to a stake and stones, said 
line striking an ash tree near the brook; thence running northwesterly by 
said Stickney's land till it comes to a proprietor's road; thence southwesterly 
by said road to a stake and stones at ye corner of Stephen Hardy's land; 
thence northwest(S"ly by said Hardy's land to a stake and stones; thence 
northwesterly by said Hardy's land to another stake and stones; thence 
northwesterly by said Hardy's land to land of Benjamin Morse, to a stake 
and stones ; thence westerly by said Morse's land to the bounds first men- 
tioned." Second piece, containing about ten acres, bounded " beginning at 
the northeasterly corner of said land at the line between Rowley and Box- 
foi'd, by the aforesaid country road; thence on said line till it strikes the

broot called groat meadow brook; thence northeasterly by said ))roolv till il 
comes to the country road before mentioned; thence on said road till it 
comes to the aforesaid line or bounds first mentioned," and same day he 
bought the above, he bought of said Thorn. Stickncy about fifteen acres ad- 
joining it, in that part of Rowley " called the three thousand acres, it being 
the fifth and sixth lotts on the letter S," and bounded by Stephen Hardy, 
proprietors' road, and Doctoi' Amos Spoflford; and about the same time he 
bought of John Smith about three-quarters of an acre next to his other on 
the road leading from Salem to Haverhill, and near Great Brook, and in the 
Spring of 1795 he bought a parcel of pasture land of about twenty-five 
acres, exclusive of the town road two rods wide laid out through it, which 
was bounded by Benjamin Jaques, Jeremiah Dodge, the road leading from 
Boxford to Haverhill, etc.5 and near S])offord's Mill Brook. He Avas a 
soldier in the Revolutionary Army and his widow was a ]iensioner the latter 
part of her life. He mariied Oct. 19, 177.3, Abigail, daughter of George ' 
and Abigail (Tyler) Carleton, b. in Boxford, Mar. 9, 1752-3, who died Jan. 
18, 1850, but he died Apr. 20, 1817, and at the request of his widow, son 
Daniel was appointed administrator, and by the inventory of his estate we 
learn that his real estate consisted of two-thirds of 138 acres of land, half 
a house and barn, and out buildings, including a cider mill, and one i^ew in 
the Baptist meeting house. Children :

SAMEL ^ SON OF HENRY ^ (pap 135), JUHK.' 

^^AlVIUEL^, born in Rowley, April 28, 1706; according to a record in 
p^H one branch of the faniil}^ and probably it is correct, but I do not di.s- 
%^^ cover liis birth on the records of Newbury or Rowley, where his 
father resided. By trade he was a honsewright, and he owned land given 
him by his father, and bought according to deeds handed down l)y his de- 
scendants, but not recorded; of Eliphalet Paysou four acres in 1735; of 
John Plumer six acres in 1736; and of David Pearson nine acres in 1737; 
all we find of his transaction recorded is a sale of half a piece of salt marsh 
to his cousin Jeremiah Poore in 1741. 

Probably he was a quiet sort of a man for we do not discover that he held 
many public trusts; the only ones on record are two executive town offices, 
viz., those of constable in 1730^0, and Ilog Reeve in 1731; the lattei- ac- 
cording to custom, from time immemoi'ial conferred upon newly married 
men; but, if he had lived beyond middle age perhaps he would have been 
called to fill important places. 

He perhaps died of a fever or some other acute disease as he made his 
will September 14, 1748, and died the 21st of same month — only one week 
after. In his will he mentions all his children, excepting one that died

young; his wife, and his father-in-law John Sari, whom he appointed exec- 
utor. 

In the inventory of his estate we learn that he had in his homestead about 
sixty acres, two and one-half acres of fresh meadow near, and six acres of 
salt marsh in Hewbury, half of which real estate he gave to each of his 
sons Joseph and Bliphalet, and he owned a pew in the upper meeting house 
in Rowley. 

He married N^ovember 10, 1730, Elizabeth, the daughter of John Searl, 
who was born January 20, 1712, and after he deceased she married George 
Little, and went to JSTew Boston to reside, and died May 28, 1779. Children:

northern part of New England, he tried his fortune in Salisbury, New 
Hampshire, about thirty miles in a northerly direction from where his

brothers Samuel und George settled, but stayed there only from Mar., 1708 
until Aug., 1799; then returned to Mass. and resided in Eeading (where 
his wife's uncle Daniel Chute then lived) then, in Jan., 1801, bought of 
Rev. Ehjah Parish, in By field, a place a few rods easterly of the church in 
that ixuish with the house in Newbury on the northerly side of the street, 
and six acres of the land on the ojipositc side of the way. They occupied 
the house until 181G (the year when there were several frosts every month, 
so that but a little corn in New England ripened), thou they i-esolvcd to go 
west — having disposed of part of their place to Benj. Colman in 1805, and 
the house in 1813 to her father, who in Sept., 1816 sold it to Joseph Hale, 
Jr., who had married Mrs. Poore's sister Eunice — which house Eunice in 
Jan., 1829 sold to Doctor Martin Root who occupies it in 1880, 

They with seven children started on their long journey in the autumn of 
1816, and when they were tarrying in Pittsburgh, Alleghany Co., in the 
western part of Pa., he wrote to his brother on the homestead, of which 
letter we give some extracts and a fac-simile of his signature, dated at 
Pittsburgh, Feb. 12, 1817, the postage of which was 25 cents, addressed to 
"Mr. Joseph Poor, By field, Mass., Newburyport post ofRce." He says 
"Possibly you may think it strange that I have not written you before this 
— but the sequel of my letter will furnish you with an explanation ... on 
the Avhole we had a prosperous journey and have enjoyed our usual health 
since we have Been hence — on our arrival however Ave found the City full 
of Yankee Horses and Chariots selling at auction through the streets . . 
as my waggon would live without Eating I thought I had better let it stand 
by Awhile than to give it to the Crier for selling. But to my astonishment 
the emigrants Continued to flock in from the northward in troops till about 
the first of January and kepte the City glutted with Horses and Cariages 
so you see I have Been completely frustrated in my expectation of Raising 
Money from my team . . . this is the fifth week since the rivers have been 
passable on the ice a thing scarcely known in the annals of this Country .... 
Many of my friends and acquaintances thought me giddy by mounting on 
the airey Castles of my own building — or intoxicated with visionary scenes 
of Grandeur — but their Conceptions of the Country — of me — and of my 
designs arid Expectations were alike puerile for — surely no undertaking of

my life was ever more premeditated or more evidently A point of duty 
otherwise I should never have Done violence to the finest feelings of human 
nature in breaking away from my old connections^ — but we thought it best 
nor have we seen cause to repent of it — but on the contrary much cause of 
gratitude to the great disposer of all events who has preserved us thus far. 
I often think of our Mother in her forlorn situation and of the care wliich 
devolves uj^on you in consequence of it — and in particular upon my beloved 
sister — but I am satisfied that all is done for her which can be done — and 
have only to hope and pray that you both may be rewarded for your care,

"While in Pittsburgh their son John was born, and when that child was 
about two months old they went down the Ohio on a flat boat, following the 
crooked course on the southern border of the state of Ohio, by Cincinnati, 
where Mrs. Poore's brothers Daniel and James Chute had resided about ten 
years, and when they got as far as Madison in Jefferson Co., which is on 
the southeastern border of Indiana, they landed and remained awhile and 
he bought some land in the wilds about forty miles westward of Madison, 
built a rough log cabin to live in and removed on to the place Oct. 2, 1819; 
but he died Dec. 9, 1819 after being sick only about four hours, leaving his 
widow to care for their large family of children in the dense wood, three 
miles from nearest neighbors, and in a country a vast distance from her 
kindred and old acquaintances. 

Nevertheless she chose to remain there, although her friends at the east 
offered to give her money to pay the expenses if she would come back to 
Massachusetts. So, Col. Jere. Collman, of IS^ewburyport, the enterprising 
man of the Eastern Stage Company, who was the husband of her sister 
Mary, helped her to one hundred dollars to pay for the land, and she with 
one son of about sixteen years of age and her elder daughters (the eldest 
son having been left east to finish learning his trade) co-operating, attacked

the forest and raised corn for bread, and her nncommon wisdom and enei'gy 
with an exceedingly qniet and amiable disposition accompanied also with 
l)iety, enaljled her to succeed in rearing a family which she could look upon 
with pleasure, and her children and the grandchildren who enjoyed her 
company rise up and call her blessed. 

Ever after the decease of Mr. Poore — more than half a century, she 
remained his widow and after her son Alvan married, she resided with her 
daughter Susannah to the end of her life — about forty years, and was a 
great help in bringing up her very large family of children — retaining her 
])hy.sical and mental faculties in an uncommon degree until her decease, 
Jan. 30, 1872, after becoming a nonogenarian. Children: 

1. Amanclii, born Oct. 12, 1798; died Feb. 5, 1799. 

2. Wendell, born Dec. 27, 1799, who married Elizabeth AVeddell and Thirza GutUree. 

3. Amanda, born Oct. 15, 1801 ; married Moses B. Pearson. 

4. Alvan, born July 31, 1803 ; married Julia A Zaring. 

- 5. Hannah A., born Nov. 17, 1804 ; married Jonathan Prosser. 

6. Betsey Chute, born Jan. 6, 1807 ; married in 1826, Walter Wright, and died at Green 

Castle, Ind., in just two years after marriage, leaving a dau. Hulda E., who survived 
her mother six weeks, and died in Sei^t., 1828. 

7. Mchitablc T., born Nov. 25, 1809 ; married William Merrill. 

8. Susannah, born Dec. 15, 1811 ; married Tlionias J. Brooks. 

9. Harriet, born Aug. 27, 1815 ; married William H. Houghton. 

10. John, born Feb. 1, 1818, who was a farmer in Siskiyou, Cal., and unmarried when heard 

from in 1863 — at which time he was on the eve of starting for a distant part of Oregon 
prospecting for gold. 

11. Amelia P., born Aug. 21, 1820 ; married John De Witt.

WENDELL «, born in Keading, Mass., Dec. 27, 1799; went west Sept., 
1818; is a retired octogenarian, but for a long period served the com- 
munit}' in filling many public offices of important trust. Among them he 
Avas collector of public revenue in 1839, Coroner from 1810 to 1812; the next 
two years High Sherift' — all in Jackson Co., Indiana. In 1851 he removed 
to liiuggold Co., Iowa, where he was Postmaster of Redding and was

elected a School Fund Commissioner in 1855, and served in that office about 
three years. In 1862 was appointed to fill the place of Judge Keller when 
he went into the army; and at the next annual election was chosen for a 
full term, the office being for county business and for Probating estates of 
deceased persons; and while acting as Judge, the Legislature passed a 
law making the comity Judge eligible tothe office of county Recorder, and 
he was elected to that office and acted some three years; then he retired 
from public life — though his fellow citizens continued to urge him to take 
offices — and has since resided on his farm near Mormontown, which place 
of residence is in the westerly part of Ringgold County, Iowa, and within 
about one mile of the boundary line between Ringgold and Taylor Counties. 

He reared an unusual large family of children, and one trait in them 
which we may mention is that they are all singers and some are good pei- 
formers on musical instruments; they were by two daughters of Daniel and 
Mary (Walling) Weddel, of East Tennessee. He married (1) Feb. 21, 1822, 
Elizabeth, born in Hawkins Co., Tenn., Apr. 25, 1801, by whom had ten 
children. She died June 13, 1840; married (2) :Nov. 10, 1810, Thirza, wid. 
of Samuel Guthrie (who had by Mr. Guthrie four daughters, Ruth, born 
1830, Sarah E., b. 1831, Leannah, b. 1831, and Mary ' A., b. 1830, who 
were all m. but are deceased), born Jan. 22, 1811. These wives' parents 
were natives of America, their father b. in said East Tennessee and mother 
in Virginia, and they had besides Elizabeth and Thirza, sons Alfred, Hiram 
C, John D., and daughters Millicent, Louisiana, Mary A., Hester A., 
Amanda and Alzira, and after their children were born they removed to 
Jackson Co., Ind., where they deceased. Mr. Poore had by his last wife 
(and she is the only child of her parents alive in 1880) six children more. 

At the time his children were born he resided on AVhite River in the 
westerly part of Jackson Co., Ind., and about ten miles west of Brownstown, 
the county seat of Jackson Co. After coming to Ringgold Co. he owned 
410 acres of land which he bought of government, and resided some eight 
miles west of Mount Ayr, the seat of that county; but it was more land 
than he could easily manage after his boys left, so he gave portions of it to 
some of them and sold the rest and bought about 1865, the place near Mor- 
montown, where he resides in 1880. Children:

for about ten years, a cooper, and in the latter part of life a fai-mer; 
but we are informed that his active mind did not permit him to use all his 
energies on these vocations. Being a constant readei-, a deep thinker, as 
well as a man of ability and uprightness of character and sterling worth,

important matters. And possessed of superior oratorial powers was called 
upon frequently to deliver Fourth of July orations, and we are informed by 
one of his sons that during the five years he lived in Iowa he was engaged 
in preaching the gospel. His life was one of an exemplary christian, and

ELIPHALET^ SON OF SAIUEL^ ("PAGE 199), HEMY', lOHB.' 

fLIPHALET*, born in Rowley, Mass., Mar. 18, 1746-7;. a spirit of enter- 
prize seized him in his teens, consequently we find him residing in the 
granite state spring of 1767 — as we learn from an instrument found 
among other papers handed down in the line of the family who have always 
occupied the homestead of his father and grandfather situated in that part 
of Rowley now called Geoi-getown, a copy of which we here insert viz.: 
"Know All men By these Presents that I Eliphalet Poor of Hampstead In 
the Prouince of the New Hamshire Cordwainer haue quit All the Husbandry

1767." 

He about that time also sold the real estate which was given to him by 
his lather; and about three years after he bought real estate in Hampstead. 
On the records of said Hampstead, ]S^. H., we find recorded the births of 
his first eight children ; but it seems that when Ruth the eiglith child was 
about two years of age he sold to Jacob Brown, of I^ewbury all his land 
in Hampstead, and removed to Hojikuiton, the town on high lands Ave^t 
of Concord the capital of New Hampshire; resided there awhile — perhaps 
when his other children were born, and while there conducted the grist mill 
at Contoocook Village; next removed from Hopkinton to Dunbarton, where 
we suppose his wife died. While in Dunbarton he lived at the place sub- 
sequently occupied by his grandnephew Thomas L. Poore (page 228). 
After the decease of his wife he returned to Hopkinton, and there resided 
the remainder of his days with his daughter Sally, who had married Mr. 
Emerson ; he died Oct. 19, 1827, after attaining the age of an Octogenarian. 

We learn from aged people now remaining in Hopkinton, who remember 
him, that he was a tall, gentlemanly appearing man. Among the offices of 
importance held by him while residing in Hampstead, was that of a select- 
man. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary Army and he is styled Captain 
by those in Dunbarton who have recollections of him. 

He married May 8, 1769, Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel and Sarah 
(FoUansbee) Little, born in said Hampstead, May 19, 1752. Her parents 
were of the old l^ewbury families and her paternal ancestors Avere of the 
family of Littles to Avhich several belonged Avho have intermarried Avith our
