PREFACE. ii64591 



It is the custom of some persons to depreciate and even to ridicule "enealun-ica! 
inquiries and labors. The study of pedigree seems to them not only tedious, but 
profitless. They have no reverence or love for the past, and it is a matter of indifference 
who their ancestors were, or whether they ever had any. This is sometimes an 
eccentricity, sometimes a proud independence, which ignores ancestry in order ti> 
increase its own importance and show that its highest honors have not been attaineil 
through the wealth, patronage or name of progenitors. But a more fruitful cause of 
this low estimate has been the boasting and arrogance of some with reference to their 
•distinguished ancestors. There is a false and a foolish pride of lineage which deserve- 
censure and ridicule. It was such conceit that prompted a retort of Cicero, when a 
patrician said to him: "You are a plebian." "I am a plebian," replied the eloquent 
Roman orator, "and the nobility of my family begins with me; but that of your's will 
•end with you." The vain reliance upon remote and doubtful pedigree, and the arrogant 
assumption of place and honor by reason of distinguished descent is without correspondini; 
merit. 

The more one studies history, and races, and families, the more he must be convinced 
of the marked and permanent influences of blood, despite all the crossings by inter- 
marriages. Every genealogist has marked and marveled at the continuance from 
generation to generation of some particular type of character that was visible in the 
earliest known ancestor. This fact has been strikingly illustrated in the two Thayer 
families and their descendants to this day; it is visible to any man of talent. To read 
i \ aright the lesson of human histoiy, to reach wise and safe generalizations, one mu>l nut 
1 forget the law of descent and force there is in blood or race. 

'Tis poor, and not becoming perfect gentry, 

To build their glories at their father's cost ; 

But at their own expense of blood or virtue, 

To raise them living monuments ; our l)irth 

Is not our own act ; honor upon trust. 

Our ill deeds forfeit ; and the wealthy sums 

Purchased by others' fame or sweat, will be 

Our stain, for we inherit nothing truly 

But what our actions make us worthy of. 
The origin of the Thayer name is, as all sirnames are, signified by the occupation 
followed by the persons, as Smith, .Sawyer, Cooper, &c., and others signified by tlie 
locality of the persons, as Hill, Pond, Sec, and others some personal peculiarity, a- 
Strong, Brown, White, Sec. Many others, for some cause have the names of anin>al> 
and birds ; for them see names as Lyon, Fox, or Swan, &c. The word Thayer, a> 
Judge Horace Metcalf's note to Dr. Elisha Thayer, of Dedham, Mass., who had 
examined the English law reports on the subject of the Thayer name spelled ih the 
different ways in those reports : Thayer, Thear, Their, Theyer, &c. The Thear i«. ..; 
German origin, and in that language signifies an ox or a cow, or dealer in such, as I am 
•told, consequently it seems probable that our ancestors took their sirname from ihc

continent, and it is synonymous with a bullock in the English language. We do al. '\ 
know that England was overrun by the Danes and Saxons one thousand years ago, mord 
or less, and the counties of Kent and Essex, 6n the east coast of England, passed intO' 
the possession of those marauders composed of intruders from the opposite coast. We 
next find a coat of arms conferred on Augustine Thayer, of Thaydom, a small village in. 
the county of Essex, and about eighteen miles north of London. We also know that 
our ancestors when coming to this country chose their residence in Braintree, Mass. 

The publication of the following pages was designed to perpetuate to future genera- 
tions the record of genealogy, in direct line, back to their first appearance in Braintree, 
Mass., in 1630, or thereabouts, which settlement is familiar to a large portion of the 
present generation, being taught in their schools and read by their firesides. The trials 
they endured on their first arrival and for a number of years afterwards, by sickness and 
death, by want of provisions, by terror by night and day from the bowlings of the savage 
beasts and more savage men, will not cease to be interesting to their descendants to the 
latest period of time. 

It may not be uninteresting to give a short sketch of the ecclesiastical history of the 
first settlers of New England, in which not only they were concerned, but all of their 
posterity, to the present day. The first settlers of Plymouth Colony (1620) were called 
''''Separatists " having separated from the Established Church of England some years 
previous to their settlement in this country. In 1596 they (the Separatists) published 
their "Confession of Faith," with the grounds of separation; re-printed in 1604. But 
their sufferings and writings soon increased their numbers, and more of the warmer 
Puritans embraced their doctrines, left the public churches and met in private houses 
for a purer worship ; but then they lost the name of Puritan, and received that of 
Separatists. The far greater part of the Puritans remained still in the church, writing 
with zeal against the separations, and as Sprent, on their behalf, in 1608, expresses it: 
"A separation we deny not from the corruptions of the church wherein we live, in 
judgment, profession, practice, for which so many of both parts (or parties, i. e., of 
Puritans and separatists, ) have suffered and do suffer so many things, but the difference 
is, we (i. e., the Puritans,) suffer for separating in the church. — Pritice's Annals, I, 235. 
And those of Massachusetts Colony (1630) were called Puritans, as the author says, p. 
234: "Of these English Puritans were the greater part of the Massachusetts Colony. 
They had been chiefly born and brought up in the National Church, and had hitherto 
lived in communion with her. As their ministers had been ordained by her bishops, 
they had officiated in her parochial churches, and till now had made no secession from 
them." In a poem written by Roger Woolcott, Esq., published in the Ma.ss. Hist. 
Coll., IV, 263, are the following curious lines : 

"But if you ask to gain intelligence. 

What were the reasons they went from thence, 

What straits they met with in their way and there. 

These facts I think I'm able to declare. 

Religion was the cause ; Divinity 

Having declared the Gospel shine (light) should be 

Extensive as the sun's diurnal shine. 

This moved our founders to this great design." 

A vast fund of information relative to the political and ecclesiastical state of our 
ancestors may be collected from the Plymouth Memorial and other histories of that 
Colony, and from Winthrop's Journal of Massachusetts, Hutchinson, Prince, Holmes, 
&c. But after all, Mr. Farmer says something respecting those who have preceded u? 
in the stage of action, and there has begun a curiosity among many of the present 
generation to trace back their progenitors in an uninterrupted series, to those who first 
landed on the bleak, inhospitable shores of New England, and it is not improbable that 
the arrival of the Puritan fathers of New England will form a more memorable epoch 



PREFACE. V 

'in history than the Conquest of England does in that country, and that posterity, a few 
centuries hence, will experience as much pleasure in tracing back their ancestry to the 
New England colonist, as some of the English feel able to deduce their descent 
from the Normans. There is a satisfaction in recognizing our first ancestors from the 
European continent ; in knowing from what part of England they came ; where they 
settled, and the condition of their families. Owing to the trials and hardships endured 
by the first settlers of New England, the uncertainty of their remaining in the country, 
and the little time afforded for recording family data and genealogical facts, there 
are but few families who have full and complete satisfaction in each of these particulars. 
But some facts, even at this late period, might be known of almost every individual who 
settled in any of the colonies, if suitable patience, research and industry were employed 
in collecting them. Our earliest records and memorials are full of information, and in 
regard to minuteness and accuracy, will bear a comparison with modern date ; and it is 
somewhat remarkable that so large a portion of them have escaped the many perils to 
which fire and the aboriginal wars exposed them. The records are in a gradual state of 
<lecay, and many of them in a very shattered condition ; many names and dates have 
already become obliterated, and portions lost, and probably lost forever. Every effort 
should therefore be made to rescue these precious relics of antiquity from the ravages of 
time. It is argued by such as underrate genealogical research, that every claim upon 
esteem of others is founded on character, and that this embodies every quality that can 
justly command the affection and reverence of man, but as character is not altogether 
isolated from nor independeint of ancestral fountains from which the native impulses, the 
mental and moral tendencies and forces have come, the subject of pedigree belono's 
clearly to the history of every man's mind and life. Our ancestors live in us ; though 
dead, they speak. In nature, below man, the various orders of beings, animate and 
inanimate, do little more than repeat ancestral forms and habits. Man also is a 
derivation from the past, and ought to be considered and weighed in connection with it. 
The study of genealogy, therefore has important scientific and moral uses. It summons 
the past to interpret the lives of men with respect to physical, mental and moral 
character. It shows how the past has poured itself into our present life. It embalmrs 
in the memory of the living, the lessons, examples and obligations of an honorable 
lineage ; and as the Romans, when emigrating to a foreign clime, took with them the . 
carved images of their fathers, and set them in the choicest places of their new homes, 
so it sets the images of our ancestors before us to be an inspiration and benediction to 
■our life. 

Matters Personal. — Origin of the work. — In retiring from the manufacturing 
business, and having a dsire to know something of the race and name, the subscriber, 
in 1859, commenced looking up the records of the Thayer name in America, and first 
found that Richard and Thomas Thayer and their families were the two first and only 
lamilies that ever came to America and settled. (I find no record of any other family.) 
In all of my correspondence I have not found a family or name but what has been 
traced to Richard or Thomas Thayer's families, and the first legal knowledge I have of 
those families is that Richard Thayer was admitted freeman in 1640, and Thomas Thayer 
was freeman and received title of lands in 1636. From the best information I can get, 
ihey must have come with the Massachusetts colony, in 1630 or thereabouts, as we find 
them with many other families that came from Braintree, Essex County, England, who 
named their new town the same as the one they left in England, and as a coat of armi 
was granted to the Thayer name in England, and I have a copy of it from the 
Lincolnfield heraldic office, as there recorded. 

The compiler has been successfully collecting information respecting a majority of the 
lineal descendants of these two families. One who has had no experience in genealogical 
inquiries can form no just idea of the amount of labor required to collect and arrange 
the names and the materials of the biography of the widely scattered and numerous 



VI PREFACE. 

descendants of these two families, through a period of nearly two and a half centurit i \ 
The labor of extensive correspondence, examination of town and state records, historiesy 
rmcient wills and deeds ; labor greatly increased also by the delay, and in some cases of 
refusal of those from whom information was sought ; his labor arising from these sources; 
delay and indifference, the compiler has reason to suppose have not been greater than a 
family historian might expect. But no complete and accurate genealogy can be prepared 
without an expenditure of time and money for which no adequate remuneration can be 
expected, save in the pleasure attending such pursuits, and the consciousness of doing, 
something, in grateful reverepce, to enshrine in a permanent memorial the lives and 
virtues of one's ancestors and kindred — a memorial which, while it may be no mean 
offering to their worth, it may also be to the descendants full of inspiration to piety and 
patriotism, as they trace their lineage from the self-sacrificing founders of civilization 
and the brave defenders of freedom in the New World. The compiler has spared nO' 
pains or expense to procure thoroughness and accuracy ; records have been examined 
and re-examined, and all correspondence, some of it illegible and its facts badly 
arranged, has been carefully compiled and copied. As the highest merit in a genealogy 
is correctness, this has been sedulously labored for, and if persistent efforts to verify 
dates, harmonize conflicting statements, and make a memorial complete and reliable, 
can accomplish the object, the work is a success. If any do not find so full an account 
of themselves and families as was anticipated, it is because in most instances no more 
.ras furnished. To some extent there has been a condensation of the material ; but 
generally in respect to those who have evinced no interest in their publication, as 
justice demanded that subscribers and their families should have the largest space 
consistent with the plan of the book. Various traditions obtain in some branches of 
the family respecting their ancestors and the time of their emigration to this country ;. 
but what is stated in this book concerning their advent, is sustained by abundant and 
incontestable proof None of these traditions reach back far enough into the early 
history of New England. 

In early records, it will be observed, that the dates were specified by numerical 
figures, in many instances, as: 30th day, 6th month, 1653; or, 12th month, 3d day, 
1657. See "Record No. 2 of this work, &c., which method of computation was 
continued until 1752, the year beginning on the 25th of March, which was called the 
1st month, February the 12th, September, October, November and December then 
having the numerical rank agreeably to their Latin etymology, which is now done awaj" 
with. To the dates of birth, marriages, deaths, &c., recorded prior to 1752, eleven 
days should be added, to make the old style correspond with the new. This rule will 
apply in most instances, but there are exceptions. 

In conclusion, to use the language of another, on a similar occasion : "The object of 
the author has been to throw light on a subject of which, necessarily, very many must 
have been ignorant ; and although this may not have been effected in the best manner 
possible, he is conscious of having done it as well as he could. If the collection should 
be found in any degree useful, the purpose will be answered."

No. 572. V G. GEN. SYLVANUS THAYER. 

Fifth child of Nathaniel and Dorcas Thayer was born in Braintree, 
Mass., 9 June, 1785. Never married. 

In early life, he resided with his uncle, Azariah Faxon, in Washington, N. H., and 
taught school at the age of seventeen. He was a graduate of Dartmouth College, on 
which occasion he pronounced the valedictory. He was oftered an appointment as cadet 
at West Point, before leaving college. After a brief course at the military school, he 
entered the army as Second Lieutenant of Infantry, i8o7,andwas commissioned Second 
Lieutenant of Engineers, February 22, 1808. Was promoted to First Lieutenant, July 
I, 1812, and Capt. of Engineers, October 13, 1813 ; was Chief Engineer of the North- 
em Army, under the command of Maj. Gen. Dearborn, in the campaign of 1812, of 
the right division of the same army, under command of Maj. Gen. Hampton, to whom 
he was Aid-de-Cainp in the campaign of 1813, and of the forces under the command of 
Brig. Gen. Moses Porter, in the defence of Norfolk, Va., in 1814. "For distinguished 
and meritorious services at Norfolk," he was promoted to the rank of Major by Brevet, 
February 20, 181 5. 

In May, 1815, Maj. Thayer was sent by the U. S. Government to Europe, in com- 
pany with William McRee, of the Corps of Engineers, to examine the French fortifica- 
tions, and to study more thoroughly the science of war as practiced in the army of Na- 
poleon. They sailed in the frigate Congress, Capt. Moms. After a month's voyage, 
they learned, on entering the English Channel, that the battle of Waterloo had been 
fought two days before. The plan was therefore changed, and in Paris, occupied imme- 
diately after by the allied forces, they enjoyed the best opportunities for perfecting a mil- 
itary education, while witnessing daily the evolutions of the troops who had routed the 
legions of the modern Ctesar. In September, 1816, Maj. Thayer received orders to 
complete the examinations he had yet to make by the following Spring, and then return 
to his native land. After his arrival, he became, July 28, 1817, Superintendent of the 
U. S. Military Academy, at West Point. 

He now entered on that distingnished career of administration, which has made 
that institution so celebrated as a school of military science. He found the academy 
weak, imperfectly organized, low in its requisitions, and inferior in its advantages of 
acquirement; he raised it by his zeal, energy and unwearied diligence, to a degi^ee of ex- 
cellence which will bear a favorable comparison with the Polytechnic School formed un-

der Napoleon's own master guidance. Unequalled in our service for the extent of his 
military reading, unless perhaps by his companion in European travel, the brilliant Col. 
McRee, already mentioned, he brought to the discharge of his important functions, emi- 
nent personal qualities ; uniting decision with courtesy, authority with kindness, and 
knowledge with consideration for ignorance; a strict disciplinarian yet parental in his con- 
duct ; of unflattering integrity, and unshrinking firmness, always true to his country and 
to himself, he was in no ordinary degree fitted for the station he so long and so honora- 
.bly filled. With the powerful aid and co-operation of Mr. Calhoun, then secretary of 
war, and his successors, and still more by his own skill and energy, he triumphed over 
countless obstacles, and achieved the most entire success. A ripe scholar himself, he 
introduced into the academy the Analytic Mathematics, pursued with so much advant- 
age in the French military schools, and made them to be considered what they truly are, 
;the ground work of a military education. To his labors and influence, the country owes 
in no stinted measure, not only the high state of improvement which has ever since char- 
acterized West Point, but the advanced state of military profession in our land. Nor 
have we any hesitation in attributing to the system inaugurated by him much of the skill, 
the science, and the discipline, which were so signally witnessed in our armies during the 
Mexican war, and which led to such extraordinary results. We have more pleasure in 
stating what we believe to be equally true, that much of the skill and success which have 
attended the departments of military and civil engineering, asappliednot only to the de- 
fence of our frontiers, but the survey of our coasts and harbors, and the construction of 
our canals and railways, may be traced ultimately to the course of mathematical training 
pursued at West Point. 

It is worthy of special remark, that no changes have been found necessary in the or- 
ganization and government of the academy, at West Point, since the period of Gen. 
Thayer's connection with it, but everything remains precisely as he established it in 
1817, fifty years ago. The institution while under his charge numbered 1631 pupils and 
690 graduates. 

His health having suffered from his close attention to the affairs of the academy he 
was, at his own solicitation, transferred to another sphere of service, after the examina- 
tion, 1833. After leaving West Point, Gen. Thayer had charge of the fortifications in 
Boston Harbor till Febniary, 1857. During most of this period he had charge also of 
the fortifications between that city and the British Provinces. In December, 1843, his 
health requiring a voyage, he went a second time to Europe, under a commission from 
the U. S. Government, to examine the state of military science and the fortifications on 
that continent. In pursuance of this design he visited France, Belgium, Holland, Den- 
mark, Sweden, Prussia, Austria, and Hungary ; then by way of Greece and Egypt, on 
his tour, and returning to his native shores the last of June, 1846. 

Hundreds of his former pupils are still in the army, some of them holding high 
commands, others are officers in the militia of the several States ; many have been, and 
still are employed in the examination of our coasts and harbors, in the survey of rail- 
roads, and in the preparation of valuable scientific works. Some have been Presidents 
and Professors in Colleges ; others have been members of the National or State Legis- 
latures ; others still have occupied civil offices of various grades, up to that of Governor 
of a State and Minister Plenipotentiary. Graham, Vinton, Ringgold, Morris, McKee, 
Clay, and not a few more fell while gallantly leading the charge on the fields of Mexico. 

Gen. Thayer was made Brevet Lieut. Col., March 3, 1823, "for distinguished and 
meritorious services," Brevet Colonel, March 3, 1833. Lieut. Col. July 7, 1838. He 
has been a member of the U. S. Board of Engineers since April 2, 1833, and of this board 
he was President. The degree of A. M. was conferred on him by his Alma Mater, 
1810, and by Harvard College, 181 1. The honorary degree of L. L. D. was conferred 
on him by St. John's Coll., Md., 1839 ; by Kenyon Coll., Ohio, 1846 ; by Dartmouth

84 FAMILY MEMORIAL. 

His donations in lifetime to Dartmouth College are well known as about $70,000. 
To the town of Braintree he has become obligated to contribute about $30,000 for a 
public library. His will, after sundry family bequests, provides that the residue shall 
constitute a fund for the establishment of an educational institution in which civil 
engineering and kindred branches shall be specialties, while the whole shall be of a high 
character, comparing favorably with any first-class academy in the State ; to be located 
conditionally in Braintree, otherwise in Quincy or Randolph, and for the benefit 
principally of those towns. The fund for these purposes is variously estimated at from 
$150,000 to $200,000. The trustees of this fund are Hon. George T. Bigelow, Wm. 
S. Dexter, Esq., Rev. Geo. A. Thayer, of Boston, Hon. Asa French, of Braintree, 
Solomon Lincoln, of Hingham, Doctor Ebenezer Alden and Seth Turner, of Randolph,, 
and possibly others. The Executors of Gen. Thayer's will are Hon. Josiah P. Cooke,

the Bread of Life to the society in this place, (Hamden, N. H.) and on the 6th Sept., 
1 792, fell asleep in Jesus, supported by the Christian hope of a resurrection to Eternal 
Life. Aged 58. 

While o'er this modest stone Religion weeps. 
Beneath, a humble, cheerful Christian sleeps; 
.Sober, learned, prudent, free from care and stiife, 
He filled the useful offices of life ; 
Admired, endeared, as husband, father, friend. 
Peace blest his days, and innocence his end ; 
Blameless throughout, his worth by all approved. 
True to his charge, and by his people loved ; 
He lived to make his hearers' faith abound, 
And died that his own virtues might be crowned. 
Mrs. Thayer survived her consort till 1809, when she died, in Boston, leaving that 
good name which is better than precious ointment. — Alden's Coll. 2, 6j.

No. 1297. VI B. REV. EBENEZER THAYER. 

Sixth child of Nathaniel and Deborah Thayer, was a graduate of Har-

Roxbury, 26 November, 1S12. (Hist. Coll., 9, 196). He married Lydia 
Copeland, 4 June, 17 19. His wife Sarah (probably a second wife) died 
at Roxbury, 8 February, 1730. Rev. Mr. Thayer died 1733. 

Mr. Fanner says, " he must have been a respectable minister, as he preached the 
Election Sermon, 1725, which was printed." In his own hand-writing is the following 
memorandum, among his Church Records, March 13, 1829 or '30 :. "This day was set 
apart for supplication and prayer, on ye account of ye threatening maladies I am and 
have been long visited with. Mr. Webb, of Boston, began in the morning with prayer; 
Mr. Waller preached from Psalms xxxiv: 12; Mr. Cotton concluded. P. M., Mr. 
Sewall began with prayer; Mr. Foxcroft preached from Psalms cii: 24; IMr. Abbot 
concluded with prayer. Good Lord, give us answer of peace to the prayers of his 
servants and people."- — Re7'. George JVkiting, Pastor of the same Church. 

No. 1298. I A. THOMAS THAYER. 

A progenitor of a numerous offspring, by some said to be a distinct race 
from Richard, but it is not positively known as to the facts. Both fam- 
ilies settled in the same town (Braintree, Mass.,) about the same time, as 
the records show that the marriages of their children were recorded very 
near together ; and as many intermarriages have taken place, it would 
make them relatives. Thomas and Margery Thayer, it appears, brought 
with them from England three sons : 

1. Thomas. 3. Shadrach. 

2. Ferilinando. 

I think that must be all of his family, as in his will he mentions no 
other nanfts.

battles of the Peninsular campaign, and for services rendered to Gen. Kearney at Wil- 
liamsburg, was recommended by that officer and Gen. Berry for promotion, receiving a 
commission as 2d Lieut, while in front of Richmond, and was immediately placed in 
command of his company, no other officers being present, and when the army reached 
Harrison's Landing, was appointed by Gen. Berry as Provost Marshal of his Brigade. 
Afterwards served as A. D. C. to Gen. de-Trobriand for several months, and in the

Hon. Ebenezer Thayer died 7 February. 1794, aged 73 years, after a 
confinement of sixteen years. He served the town in the office of select- 
man eighteen years, and was chosen Representative of his town for 
seventeen consecutive years, and was one of the Council in 1776. And 
further tribute of respect to the memory of a worthy character was pre- 
sented by the Rev. Ezra Wild, of Braintree, for the Massachusetts 
Gazette. 

13 Feb., (7) 1794, aged 73, after a sore conflict for many years, deeply pressed, 
in the arms of his affectionate offspring and other condoling friends, fell asleep the Hon. 
Ebenezer Thayer, for some time of the Council Board, and for many years the Repre- 
sentative of the ancient town of Braintree. His person and aspect was pleasing to the 
eye, while a condescending applicability touched the heart, and gained the esteem of 
a numerous acquaintance. Genteel and graceful were his manners, his affection tender 
and flowing ; naturally hospitable and generous, many tasted the fruits of his bounty; 
friendly to religion and virtue, he contributed to their support with cheerfulness, and 
while health remained, the House of God, sacred to worship, witnessed his presence 
with such as keep Holy Day — an example honorable in all to imitate. He lived to see 
and lament the vanity of all worldly parade and the unnecessary dissipation of the 
present age. 

He now sleeps where the weary are at rest, waiting the final summons of the last 
trump, when the breath of God shall reanimate his honorable dust. 

Hush, then, the filial flowing tear. 

Nor call him back, again the galling shafts of envy to sustain. 

Or drink anew the bitter cup of time. 

Or over human woes to shed more tears! 

Adieu, thou friendly sleeping shade, adieu! 

— Aldeti's Coll., j, 57.

rose from grade to grade in the military, to Brigadier-General ; he left a fair reputation, 
one which his enemies respected and envied. 

His sons were seven in number, four of whom survived him ; he died of general de- 
bility, consequent on the stopping of a severe cough, for which he was exercised for 
nearly 20 years. His death, though somewhat sudden, was easy ; his senses unim- 
paired, his mind calm and unruffled, he died like a real disciple of that pure religion, 
for which he for many years, was a professor, 30 May, 1S04.

No. 2395. V L HENRY S. THAYER. 

Fifth child of Gen'l Bezaleel and Margaret Thayer, was a young man 
of great promise, beloved by all who knew him; he was well educated, 
always had a good word for everyone, young or old, and was a gentleman 
in every respect. When in his twentieth year he desired to visit his- 
brother, in California, and as his sister and her busband were going, he 
embraced the opportunity to visit the golden country. They sailed from 
New York, 5 January, 1853, and at Panama embarked aboard that ill- 
fated vessel, Columbus, with iioo persons, of whom 11 1 died. The ship 
got disabled, and was obliged to make port at Acapulco, on the Mexican 
coast, I February, 1853, where he and his sister "landed and were taken 
with yellow fever. He died 7 February, 1823, and was buried in the 
American grounds of that city. His sister survived the shock, and is now 
(1873) living. The following lines were written by a friend : 

Far off, on the Pacific's shore. 

Where Acapulco's walls arise, 
He sleeps, whose loss we now deplore 

With aching hearts and weeping eyes. 

He sleeps where they who shared with him 

The dangers of the ocean wave ; 
With eyes that had with tears grown dim, 

They laid him within an early grave. 

A light has vanished from the home 

Where love still holds his memory dear ; 
As if a star in heaven's blue dome 

Should shine awhile — then disappear. 

And joys from out parental hearts 

Have passed, to be revered no more, 
Until they cross the stream which parts 

The mortal from the spirit shore. 

That stream is neither dark nor wide 

Between us and the dear one dead ; 
But dwellers, listening on earth's side. 

Hear from beyond the angels tread. 

And over that calm, Heaven-lit stream, 

Familiar music softly swells, 
And well-remembered voices seem 

Seem sv/eet as chimes of morning bells. 

There on that shore sweeps no storm ; 

He lives, and 'watch o'er us shall keep-. 
Though over his dear earthly form 

The vines of Acapulco creep. 



346 FAMILY MEMORIAL. 

For death o'er life has no control ; 

That thought is born of gloomy creeds ; 
The clay house crumbles, but the soul 

On to its heaven built mansion speeds. 

Farewell, dear friend ! thy life so brief. 

Thy noble deeds and early grave 
Shall teach us, in this hour of grief. 

To trust in Him whose arm can save. 

Though many hopes with thee have died. 

And many eyes are wet with tears, 
Still, love shall keep thy memory bright 

Through all the gloom of future years. 

Thus have we halted here to pay » 

This tribute to thy worth, dear friend ; 
We now resume life's march, and pray 

To meet thee at our journey's end.
