THOMAS TROWBRIDGE AND ELIZABETH MARSHALL. 

By Emory McClintock, Ph.D., LL.D., of Morristown, N. J. 

I HAVE recently learned much conceriiiiis^ the wife of Thomas Trow- 
bridge, the settler in New England. The book " Trowbridge Family," 
which says that nothing is known of her, contains also some erroneous 
inferences regarding Thomas Trowbridge's immediate family, which need 
to be corrected. The authorities herein referred to are indicated as fol- 
lows :

N.H. — Colonial Records of New Haven. 

That Thomas Trowbridge lived at Taunton after his return to England 
is well known from his having executed there in 1663 a power of attorney 
to his sons in New Haven [T.F.]. It is also well known that he was a 
merchant having dealings with the West Indies [T.F.] and New England 
[" Thomas Trowbridge, gent., late of New Haven," is mentioned in Aspin- 
wall's Notarial Records, Boston]. That he was a man of consequence at 
Taunton will be seen from the prominence given to him in his wife's family's 
published pedigree, hereafter quoted. The date of his burial at Taunton 
is given [T.F.] as 7 February, 1672/3. There are numerous facts rela- 
tive to the Trowbridges of Taunton and other parts of Somersetshire given 
in " Trowbridge Family," to which I refer the reader, dealing now only 
with the incorrect inferences deduced from them in that work. 

There were good grounds for believing that two of the sons of Thomas 
Trowbridge who were left in New Haven, Thomas and William, had been 
born in England, and the third, James, at Dorchester in Massachusetts. 
The extant records of Taunton, respecting the Trowbridge family for more 
than a century before and up to the settler's death, appear to be quoted fully 
in T. F. They show no other reference to him except the burial, 16 Feb- 
ruary, 1653/4, of "John, son of Thomas Trowbridge " ; and they mention 
no other Thomas Trowbridge except the merchant and public benefactor 
who was buried in 1620. There is, therefore, no visible basis for the asser- 
tion in T.F. that the sons Thomas and William were born "at Taunton," 
in 1632 and 1634 respectively. There is nothing to show that the settler 
was born at Taunton, that he married there, that any child of his was bom 
or married there, or that his wife or any child, except John, was buried 
there. Yet, unknown to T.F., the pedigree of his wife's family says that 
she was married to " Thomas Trobridge of Taunton." All these incon- 
gruities are reconciled by regarding him as the eldest son and heir of John, 
heir of the merchant Thomas, and as having settled and married at Exeter, 
removing thence to New England, and returning later to Taunton to take 
charge of Iiis inheritance. 



292 Thomas Trowbridge and Elizabeth Marshall. [July, 

He is known [T.F.] to have been at Dorchester in Massachusetts in 
16.S6, he and his wife being noted on the records of town and church as 
*<Mr."and "Mrs.", a distinction then confined to those of established 
gentility. He appears later at New Haven, in 1642, again always as '' Mr.", 
and in the census of 1G43 his estat^is given at £500, a large sum for that 
place and time, his household comprising five persons. The references to 
him [N.H.] consist chiefly of accounts of troubles occurring in his absence, 
and are well known. It is to be inferred that by the end of 1 643 his wife 
had died, that his three sons already named had been left in the charge of 
his employee Gibbons, and that the authorities thereafter found it neces- 
sary to look after his property, his boys, and Gibbons. It does not appear 
that he ever returned. On Jan. 19, 1663/4, as "Thomas Trowbridge of 
Taunton in the County of Somerset, gent.," he gave power to his three sons 
to take his property in New England and to sue and imprison Gibbons. It 
is by no means certain that he went from New Haven direct to Taunton, 
but is perhaps more likely that he was busy elsewhere, until recalled to Taun- 
ton by his father, or in consequence of his father's death. As regards his 
wife, it is almost incredible that, if living, she could have left her three 
younger children in the charge of strangers. 

John Trowbridge, herein supposed to have been father of Thomas, was 
the only son and heir of Thomas the elder, a rich merchant of Taunton, 
whose benefactions and will (drawn 6 July, 1619, proved 6 May, 1620) 
are given fully in T.F. He was baptized at Taunton on 25 March, 1570 
[T.F.], and was probably married not far from 1595, no record appearing 
at Taunton either of his marriage or of the baptism of his eldest son Thomas. 
The baptisms of eight other children are recorded there in regular order, 
beginning with 8 February, 1598/9. That Thomas was probably John's 
son and heir is shown by the broad fact that he succeeded John as the chief 
Trowbridge of Taunton, just as John had succeeded his father; and more 
particularly by the otherwise unaccountable coincidences between the 
names of their sons. John's four sons were, in order, Thomas, after his 
father, John, after himself, William, and James, Thomas's four sons, in 
order, were John, after his father, Thomas, after himself, William, and 
James. 

It is, however, asserted in T.F. that Thomas was a nephew of Thomas 
the elder, who bequeathed to the nephew Thomas certain chattels as if he 
were a servant or dependent. This surmise ignores the coincidences just 
mentioned, and involves the assumption tliat the nepliew built up a fortune 
independent of that left to John by Thomas the elder. It is accompanied 
by no show of probability, or even possibility, beyond the mere mention 
in the will of a nephew Thomas. Yet this nephew must presumably have 
been of about the age of his cousin John, or not far from it; that is, about 
100 years old wlien Thomas the settler died in 1672/3. The wills quoted 
in T.F. do not support the assumption made, and asserted as a fact, that 
Thomas the elder was of the Huttou family, but indicate rather that he 
came from Brushford ; and if so, his brother John of Brushford had a son 
Thomas who was of age by 1583.* 

* Thomas's connection with Brushford is shown by various convergino^ circum- 
stances. There was another Trowbridge at Taunton, William, whose will of 1575 
mentioned his brother " Thomas Trowbridge," as if well known, and a daughter hav- 
ing the singular name of Julian. Also, either William or Thomas had a daughter 
Thomasine baptized in 15G9-70, at Taunton. Thomasine Trowbridge of Brushford, in 
her will of 1571, mentioned brothers John and Tbomas, also " Grace, Ann, and Julian 
Trowbridge," though not mentioning William; the tbree names in quotation marks 
being given also by John of Brushford as those of his three daughters. John of Taun- 
ton, son of Thomas, afterwards named a son William.

The correction of erroneous inferences heretofore made concerning 
Thomas Trowbridge is only incidental to ray chief purpose, which is to 
present the facts concerning his wife and her family which I discovered 
during a visit to Exeter in the summer of 1904. The clue was supplied 
by a note-book entry of some years' standing: " Perhaps the same T.T., 
then of St. Petrock, Exeter, who was licensed 24 March, 1626/7, to marry 
Elizabeth Marshall of St. Mary Arches [Exeter Licenses]." The follow- 
ing entries were readily found : 

'' 26 March 1627 Mr Thomas Trobrige and Elizabeth daughter of 
Mrs Alee Marshall widoe married, Jeremy Short parson " [R.M. A.] 

Baptized : 

"1629 John the sonne of Thomas Trubbridge the 8 of November" 
[R.P.] 

"1631 Thomas the sonne of Thomas Troubridge the 11 December" 
[R.P.] 

" 1 633 William the sonne of Thomas and Elizabeth Trowbridge Septem " 
[R.P., partly illegible.] 

The register of St. Petrock names also a daughter Elizabeth, baptized 
6 March, 1627/8, and buried 10 May, 1630. 

This record contains the two sons, Thomas and William, who were taken 
to New England and remained there, in their proper order and at the 
proper dates, and no other surviving child except John, who was buried 
at Taunton in 1653. John is now seen to have been the eldest son. 

Alice Marshall of Exeter made her will 30 December, 1630, and it was 
proved [P.C.C., 23 St. John] on 24 February, 1630/1. It disposed of a 
large property, most of it going to her son James Marshall, including 
premises in Exeter and " messuages and tenements within the manor of 
Daccombe," St. Mary Church, Devon. " Item I give to my daughter 
Elizabeth Trowbridge £50 and one piece of plate to the value of £10." 
Among grandchildren receiving £5 each were named John and Elizabeth 
Trowbridge. Other relatives named were brothers Richard and Peter 
Beavis ; sister-in-law Susanna Beavis ; four sons of Peter Beavis ; Alice 
Beavis, daughter of brother Nicholas deceased ; " mother-in-law Mistress 
JaneMartyn"; and, in particular, her children, Richard Marshall, Jane 
Golde, Alice Harris, and Susan Marshall. Susan, for example, was to 
receive, when of age, enough to make up £800, including what came to 
her from her father, cousin John, and brother John. 

This will shows that the following entries [R.M. A.] refer to Eliza- 
beth Trowbridge's family, though her own name does not appear among 
them : 

Married, 30 August, 1595, John Marshall and Alice Bevys. 

Baptized, children of John Marshall, 

29 June, 1598, Jane (buried 30 May, 1600). 

17 June, 1599, John (buried 20 March, 1600/1). 

26 June, 1600, Alice (" daughter of the Worshipful Mr. John Mar- 
shall," married 19 June, 1621, to George Harris). 

18 March, 1603/4, Jane (married 26 September, 1624, to James 

Gould). 
26 March, 1607, Anne (buried 14 November, 1609). 
20 January, 1608/9, James. 

10 July,' 1610, John (buried 16 December 1630). 
29 September, 1611, Susan. 
3 November, 1613, Richard. 



294 Thomas Troiuhridge and Elizabeth Marshall. [July, 

Buried, 17 August, 1624, John Marshall. 

13 January, 1G30/1, Alice Marshall, widow. 

The father of this family, "the Worshipful Mr. John Marshall," was 
Bailiff of Exeter in 1601, Sheriff in 1609, and Mayor in 1615, retaining 
afterwards the position of Alderman [Izackel. His will was proved by 
his widow Alice, 17 September, 1624 [P.C.C, 74 Byrde]. " In the Name 
of God Amen. I John Marshall Esquire one of the Aldermen of the City 
of Exeter make this my last will and testament the 8th of August 1624. 
First I will that my debts being 'paid and ray funeral expenses discharged 
the residue of all my goods and chattels shall according to the custom of 
the said city of Exeter be divided into three equal pans. I give one por- 
tion thereof to my wife. I give one other portion thereof among my three 
sons and two daughters, that is to say James Marshall, John Marshall, 
Richard Marshall, Elizabeth Marshall and Susan Marshall. Out of the 
third portion I give the following legacies, viz., to my son James Marshall 
so much as shall with the legacy given him by his cousin John Marshall 
deceased make up £300. To my sons John Marshall and Richard Marshall 
so much as shall with the legacies given them by their cousin John Marshall 
deceased make up £300 each. To my daughter Elizabeth Marshall as

City of Exeter £5, whereof 20s. to the poor of St. Mary Arches parish. 
Item I give to my said wife the house wherein I now dwell to hold dur- 
ing the term of her life, the remainder thereof to my son James Marshall 
and his heirs for ever. Item I give my lands and tenements in the parish 
of Northtowne, called Eastercombe, Westercombe and Luckerton, with the 
rents thereof to my said wife during her life, the remainder to my said son 
James and his heirs for ever. Item I give all my estate and interest of 
the house wherein Mr. Joseph Trowbridge merchant now dwelleth to

said City of Exeter, and also my tenements without Southgatein the parish 
of the Holy Trinity to my friend John Gupwill Esquire, now Mayor of 
the said City, and Peter Bevis Esquire my brother in law, provided they 
sell the said tenements as soon as convenient, the said money to be divided 
into three equal parts, one part to come to my said wife and the other two 
parts to be divided equally among my said five children. Item I give to 
my friends John Gupwill, Peter Bevis and Nicholas Mercer of Exeter 
merchant, all my tenements in Bampton and my whole estate in the rectory 
of Bampton in Co. Devon to them and their heirs for ever [?]. Item I 
give all the rest of my goods and chattels to, my said wife, whom I make 
sole executrix of this my last will. I constitute the said John Gupwill 
and Peter Bevis overseers of the same and give to each of them 20s. for

their pains. Witnesses : John Gupwill, Peter Bevis, Nicliolas Mercer, 
Edward Martiue, John Trowte." The transcriber has obviously modern- 
ized the spelling. 

" Memorandum that Richard Marshall of the city of Exeter merchant 
did on the 4th of June 1635 make and declare his last will as follows. 
First, he gave to his sister Trobridge £100. To the poor £50, to be dis- 
tributed at the pleasure of his brother James Marshall. All the rest of 
his goods to be divided between his brother and his sisters." [P.C.C, 
88 Sadler, proved 8 August, 1G35.] 

That before her marriage Elizabeth was preferred to her sisters, or at 
any rate to her unmarried sister, is shown by her father's will ; and that 
after her marriage she was preferred by her mother to her married sisters, 
and by her brother to all his relatives, is shown by their wills. It is to be 
inferred that she was kind and helpful by nature. The cousin John who 
had made bequests to them was buried at St. Mary Arches [R. M. A.], 23 
May, 1622. In his will [E. P.], made in Exeter, he named a brother 
Robert and a cousin John, besides leaving much to the children of his uncle 
John Marshall the Alderman. 

John Marshall's father was Robert Marshall of Ilminster, whose will of 
7 August, 1576, was proved 9 October, 1576 [P. C. C, 29 Carew], naming 
wife Joan, sons Edward, John, Nicholas, William, John the younger, 
Roger, and Thomas, and daughter Anne. He left a half interest in tan 
vats, bark mills, &c., to his eldest son, a quarter interest to John, money 
to the other children, with 2 acres to Nicholas, and the residue to his wife, 
who appears to have brought him some property. His wafe, " Joane Mar- 
shall," had been named as sister in the will [P. C. C, 22 Wells, as cited 
in S. W.] of William Owseley of Chillington in Somerset, near Ilminster, 
dated 8 October, 1558. His son John the younger became Mayor of 
Exeter, while John the elder, " of Chillington," was the father of John 
of Exeter, nephew of the Mayor, as is indicated by his naming in his will 
[P. C. C, 54 Drury], made and proved in July, 1590, two sons, Robert 
and John. In this will "• Robert Marshall " is named as a supervisor and 
signs as a witness. This may have been a certain Robert of Ilminster, 
perhaps a cousin of the testator. 

There was some connection between these Marshalls of Ilminster in 
Somerset and those of Teyngrace in Devonshire. The arms of the Teyn- 
grace family, with a difference, w^ere used by the Ilminster family. The 
two Marshalls of Teyngrace, John and Thomas, named in the Devon Vis- 
itation of 1564, were, along with " Robert Marshall of Ilminster," named 
as overseers in the will of Thomas Marshall, merchant of Exeter, made 13 
March, 1582, and proved [P. C. C, 28 Drury] 18 May, 1590. In the 
body of the will is named " Robert Marshall my brother's son," who may 
have been the Robert of Ilminster named at the end as overseer. It seems 
possible that Thomas of Exeter was uncle to John the Mayor and brother 
to Robert of Ilminster who died in 1576, and who named a son Thomas, 
as well as to the father of the Robert of Ilminster who appears later. It 
is unfortunate that the parish register of Ilminster of those days has not 
been preserved. Thomas was Bailiff of Exeter in 1557 [Izacke], and one 
of the founders of the Merchant Adventurers Guild [Cotton]. He was 
married there in 1544 [R. M. A.]. 

That the grandfather of John Marshall the Mayor was named William, 
is shown by the following pedigree [Westc, p. 502] : 

" Marshall of Exeter and Chillington in Somerset. Per fess gules and 



296 Thomas Troiohridge and Elizabeth Marshall. [July, 

or, ill cliief 3 antelopes' heads erased, or, langued azure, in base a inill- 
rind sable. Crest, an antelope's head erased, or gorged gules. William 
Marshall had Robert =- Joan, daughter and heir of Owsley of ChillinfJ- 
ton, who had William, Thomas of Chillington, and John, Mayor of Plxeter 
in 1G15, who married Alice, daughter of Ricliard Beavis of Exon, and had 
issue James, Richard, Alice (married Harris), Elizabeth (wife to Thomas 
Trobridge of Taunton), Jane (wife to James Gould of Exeter), and Susan." 

As another indication that Thomas Marshall of Exeter may have been 
son of the William Marshall named in this pedigree, it may be noted that 
Thomas named his eldest son William, as shown in his will. 

The spelling of the name Bevys was changed to Beavis by Peter Bevys, 
between 1624 and 1630. In 1624 he signed Bevis as witness to Mar- 
shall's will ; in 1630 Beavis as witness to Mrs. Marshall's. After 1630, all 
appear to have spelled it Beavis; before 1624, Bevys. Peter's baptismal 
record and marriage license were for Bevys, as were all other observed 
records in which the name appears before 1624. 

That the mother of Elizabeth Marshall, Alice Bevys, was daughter of 
Richard Bevys, who died while Mayor of Exeter, in 1602 [Izacke], is 
shown not only by the Marshall pedigree, but also by the names of her 
brothers given in her will, Peter Bevys and Richard Bevys, who were re- 
spectively baptized [R. M. A.] as sons of Richard Bevys, on 16 August, 
1590, and 9 March, 1578/9. Peter was much the more active and prom- 
inent, and became [Lyson] lord of the manor of Bishop's Clist, near Ex- 
eter. "This family," says Lyson, under the title Beavis of Clist, p. clxxiii, 
*' is traced in Devonshire to the reign of Henry IV." He gives the arms 
as azure, 3 close helmets argent, garnished or ; crest, a pheon argent. 

Richard Bevys became Sheriff in 1591, Governor of the Guild of Mer- 
chant Adventurers in 1594, and Mayor in 1602, dying on 26 August 
[Izacke]. He made a deed of trust, 16 June, 1602, to AVilliam Tickle 
and John Marshall, gent., for a benefaction to provide marriage portions 
during future years to worthy young women of several parishes [Brice]. 
" He bears azure, three helmets argent, attired or " [Brice]. The same 
coat was painted in his memory on one of the windows of Exeter Cathe- 
dral, among similar memorials of high officials of the city ; but all were 
hidden for two centuries under coats of whitewash, which when removed 
revealed traces enough to enable lists and descriptions [H. D.] to be made 
before the windows themselves were replaced by new glass. 

It is more difficult to trace the Bevys family back to early times than it 
was when Lyson spoke of it as already done. Perhaps the property in the 
parish of St. Mary Church, devised by Richard's daughter Alice, may give 
a clue to Richard's birthplace, though he or she may have bought it, or 
taken it for a debt. The early parish registers have been destroyed. I 
find no Bevys will in E. P., D. W., S. W., W. G., or in the P. C. C. pub- 
lished calendars, except that of Nicholas Bevys (so spelled), son of Richard 
and merchant of Exeter, dated 8 November, 1612, and proved 2 June. 
1613 [W. G., p. 1071]. Two of the executors named are "my brother 
John Marshall and my cousin Ignatius Jourdenn." The latter was Igna- 
tius Jurdaine, baptized at Lyme Regis, 17 August, 1561, son of William. 
He became Mayor of Exeter and a member of two parliaments. A son- 
in-law of Jurdaine was William Hill of Lyme Regis and Exeter, later of 
Dorchester in Massachusetts, and Fairfield in Connecticut. It may be that 
William Jurdaine married a sister of Richard Bevys or of his wife. One 



1905.] Deaths at Edgartown. 297 

Elizabeth Bevys, married [R. M. A.] 28 June, 1580, to Richard Denys, 
must probably have been related to Richard. His daughter P^lizabeth was 
buried 5 February, 1588/9. The other entries concerning his children are 
scanty and unimportant. 

It would seem that Richard Bevys had two wives. On G March, 
1566/7 [R. M. A.], he married Elizabeth Provs (apparently so written) 
or Prous, and on 12 July, 1585, " Elizabeth Bevys " was buried. His 
daughter Alice's will of 1630 names her " mother in law Mistress Jane 
Martyn." This may be assumed to have been her father's second wife, 
mother of Peter Bevys. It could not have been her late husband's mother 
Joan, who was not mentioned in his will, who was apparently married 
about 80 years before 1630, and who had been left a widow 54 years be- 
fore that date. 

Elizabeth Prous (Prouz, Prowse) was probably a relative of Richard 
Provvse, Mayor of Exeter in 1578 [Izacke). According to the pedigree of 
Prouz of Chagford, near Exeter, a very old family [Tuckett], Richard the 
Mayor was second son of Lawrence Prouz of Exeter and Chagford, the 
estate of Chagford going to Lawrence's eldest son John, who had a daugh- 
ter Elizabeth, apparently of about the age of the Elizabeth married to 
Richard Bevys.

JEREMY ADAMS OF HARTFORD, CONN., AND SOME 
OF HIS DESCENDANTS. 

By Arthur Adams, A.M., of Ocean City, N. J. 

1. Jeremy^ Adams came from England with Rev. Mr. Hooker's Com- 
pany. This company settled first at Braintree, but removed soon to Cam- 
bridge, Mass., then called Newtown, where Jeremy was as early as 1632. 
He was made freeman at Cambridge, May 6, 1635, and the Proprietors' 
Records of the town show that he was in possession of a house-lot there in 
Oct. of the same year. 

On the removal of Mr. Hooker's Company to Hartford, in 1636, Jeremy'- 
Adams was one of the number, and became an original proprietor of that 
town ; and, according to Mr. Hinman, he was a juror and deputy to the 
General Court in 1638. Apr. 5, 1638, lie was sent, with Capt. Mason and 
four others, by the General Court, to treat with the Indians, and to trade 
with them for corn.* In the land division of 1639, he received thirty 
acres on the highway, now Elm street ; and was constable that year. 

About 1639, he married first, Rebecca, widow of Samuel Greenhill, per- 
haps as a second wife. Greenhill had come from Staplehurst, Co. Kent, 
England, in the same ship with Simon Wilhird. 

Mar. 5, 1644, the General Court ordered Jeremy Adams to appear at the 
next General Court to receive censure for adhering to Thomas Asmor, en- 
couraging him to resist an oliicer ; and especially for his " passionat distem- 
pered speeches, lowd language and unmannerly caredge in the face of the 
Court."* The General Court on Mar. 13, 1661-62, granted to Jeremy 
Adams 300 acres of upland and 40 acres of meadow on the road going to 
Monhegin. About the same time, the Court established Jeremy as keeper 
of the '' Ordinary." This tavern was on the site of the present Univer- 
salist church. He bought the lot of John Morrice, and mortgaged it to the 
Colony, Jan. 26, 1660. According to the Public Records of Conn., he 
was established " Custome Master " for Hartford, by the General Court, 
May 14, 1663. He was freed from watching and warding at the age of 
sixty. Mar. 2, 1664-65, and served as ''townsman" in 1671. 

His wife Rebecca died in 1678, and he married second, Rebecca, widow 
of Andrew Warner, Jr., and daugliter of Jolm Fletclier. Jeremy Adams 
died Aug. 11, 1683. His estate was valued at £243.5.6, and he gave his 
property to his grandson Zachariah Sanford, the children of his son John,

Middletown, Jan. 25, 1715, aged 77.

2. JoHN^ Adams {Jeremy^). Of this John little is known, except the 

date of his death, and the inventory of his estate. He died in 
^1670. The inventory, dated Nov. 9, 1670, amounted to £74. 15. 06. 
His widow, Abigail, married John Betts of Wethersfield, who was 
probably son of John, the son of Mary Betts the School Dame of 
Hartford. 

On Jan. 26, 1680, John Betts, of Wethersfield, bought of Jacob 
Walker, of Stratford, a farm at Huntington, Long Island.:]: It is 
probable that at this time John Betts and his wife Abigail, widow 
of John Adams, removed with the Adams children to Huntington. 
At all events, they were there by 1684, when John Betts and his 
"wife Abigail conveyed to Edward Higbee, " for and in consideration 
of a marriage " between the said Higbee and Abigail Adams, his 
step-daughter, a part of the farm bought from Jacob Walker.§

4, Hannah^ Adams {Jeremy^) married Nathaniel Willet, who came to 

Hartford about 1642. She was his second wife. He died Jan. 4, 
1698, leaving a good estate. 

There seems to be some confusion here. The " Memorial His- 
tory of Hartford " states that Nathaniel Willet had three wives, 
and that the second was Hannah, daughter of Jeremy Adams, the 
third being Eleanor, widow of Jasper Clements and Nathaniel 
Browne, and this is certainly correct, but Savage speaks of Eleanor 
as the daughter of Jeremy. 

Children, as assigned by Savage to " Eleanor," daughter of 
Jeremy : 

i. Rebecca Willet, m. 1690, Thomas Rumney of Middletown. 

ii. Abigail Willet, ra. John Bishop of New Haven.

A child :

man, in his " Puritan Settlers," as the children of John Adams (son 
of John of Hartford) and his wife Esther.

Huntington with his mother, and step-father John Betts. Nov. 10, 
1G89, Jeremy Adams sold to his " well beloved brother" Jonathan 
Adams half of the plot of land he had bought from his step-father.* 

In 1695, Jonathan Adams of Long Island, yeoman, bought of 
Thomas Budd about 250 acres of land at Great Egg Harbor, in 
Gloucester Co., Province of West New Jersey.f Jonathan Adams 
made subsequent purchases, until his estate consisted of over 1200 
acres. 

About the time of his coming to New Jersey, he became a mem- 
ber of the Society of Friends, and his descendants for several gen- 
erations continued in that faith. In 1726 he was chosen overseer 
of the Friends' Meeting for Great Egg Harbor. | He was a man 
of some property and considerable influence, and was much re- 
spected, serving as one of the Justices for the County Courts for a 
number of years, and as a special tax collector in 1701. § 

His will, II dated'May 27, 1719, probated June 17, 1727, mentions 
his wife Barber (? Barbara), two sons and seven daughters. The 
following children are given in the order in which they are men-

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF HENRY ADAMS OF 
BRAINTREE. 

By Rev. Hiram Francis Fairbanks, of Milwaukee, Wis. 

During the last few years, I have made, through the agency of Mr. J. 
Henry Lea, the well known genealogist, most extensive and thorough 
search in the Counties of Somerset and Devon for the English Ancestry of 
Henry Adams of Braintree. • At some future time I may give more fully 
the results of this search, but at present I will confine myself to a brief 
statement of the most essential facts made manifest. 

The Aspinwall Notarial Records (Boston Record Commissioners' Report, 
No. 32) contain the following (page 267) : 

" 25 (10) 1649. John Shepheard of Braintre in N. E : carpenter husband of 
Margaret the daughter of Henry Squire late of Kinweston neere Somerton in 
Somersetshire granted a fre of Atturuey to John Adams of Concord to receive 
&c all rents due for lauds novr or late iu the tenure & occupation of Jonathan 
Adams liveiug neere Ballsberry in Somersetshire," etc. 

It is usually conceded that John Adams of Concord in IGJfd was son 
of Hen^ Adams of Braintree. This record clearly connects him with 
Somersetshire. Ballsberry is Balstonsborough, which is about four miles 
south east of Glastonbury. It is in the immediate neighborhood of Charlton- 
Adam and Charlton-Mackrell, the significance of which will be seen later. 
The parish Register of Balstonsborough has been searched, and its chief 
Adams records are those of this very Jonathan Adams : 



* Strylsei-'s Jerseymen in the Kevolution. 
fliecorcTed in the Ollico of the Secretary of State, ''. 



Trenton, N. J. 



1905.] English Ancestry of Hent^ Adams. 321 

" 1038— Jonathan Adams and Joliane Close were married the vuS^ day of 
ffebniary. 

1643— Jonathan, son of Jonathan and Joan Adams was baptized, 1^ No- 
vember. 

1647 — Thomas, son of Jonathan and Joan Adams was baptized, October 21^'^. 

1648— September 10— Henry son of Jonathan and Joan Adams \vas buried." 

All of Jonathan's children, so far as recorded, had the same names as 
the children of Henry Adams of Braintree, and this fact, connected with 
the power of attorney mentioned, would seem to show that this Jonathan 
Adams was a relative of our Henry, and that this neighborhood was the 
place of the latter's origin. The nearest parishes to the south are Barton 
St. David, Kingweston, Keinton-Mandeville, Butleigh, Charlton-Mackrell, 
and Charlton-Adam. But unfortunately the early registers of parishes 
most needed — Barton St. David, Kingweston, and Charlton-Adam — 
have been lost, except for recent years. 

By means of wills, Bishops' Transcripts, etc., we can find some traces, 
but only sufficient to show that the missing records of Kingweston probably 
contained what we want. Kingweston is only about one and a half miles 
distant from Charlton-Adam and Charlton-Mackrell, and the parishes are 
adjoining. As Bishops' Transcripts for nearly all these parishes are in 
existence for at least a part of the years in which some of Henry Adams's 
children were born, we have been able to eliminate all except Kingweston. 
In Kingweston there is only one year of Bishops' Transcripts in existence 
corresponding with a year of the birth of Henry Adams's sons : 

"Kingweston — 1622 — Johannes Adams Alius Henrici Adams baptizat. fuit 
decimo 4° die Decembris." 

While the exact date of the birth of John Adams of Concord is not 
known, this is a very probable record of his baptism. The parish of King- 
weston seemingly joins Balstonsborough, which is on the north, and the 
two hamlets are about two and one half miles apart. After the exhaustive 
examination of the registers of all surrounding parishes, Mr. Lea wrote : 
^'I fully agree with you that we have located Henry Adams the emigrant 
in this part of Somersetshire. * * * * As the result has proved, I fear 
there is no doubt that his records were in the lost resfister of Kino^weston." 

It should be remembered that the ancestors of the two prominent Dev- 
onshire Adams families, Adams of Fenne also called Adams of Tunstall 
and Waton, and Adams of Bowdon, both came from Charlton-Adam in 
Somerset. 

As a matter of interest to genealogists, I may note some facts which do 
not strictly come under the intent of the present paper. 

It is well known that the results of all the search of Col. Joseph L. 
Chester in the Adams matter are now in the Heralds' College at London. 
It will surprise many to learn that all he has about the Adams lines of Dev- 
onshire is " furnished by William Downing Bruce, Esq., of London." Con- 
sequently, Dr. George W. Marshall, of Heralds College, wrote to Mr. Lea : 
" This looks as if no proper search had been made at Exeter. It seems 
that your desire is fulfilled, and that Chester left the Devon field unworked." 
Mr. Lea then wrote to me : "■' You will note too that this is Mr. Bruce's 
and not .Col. Chester's work, so it is evident that neither of them had 
worked Devon except in the most superficial manner." Another item 
shows how careless has been the work of those who have walked in Col. 
Chester's footsteps. They have almost universally asserted that the family 
of Adams of Fenne, or Tunstall, became extinct with Nicholas Adams of 



322 English Ancestry of Henry Adams. [July, 

the Visitation of 1564. I have a copy of Harleian MS. 1399, folio 115, 
giving the coat of arms and pedigree of Nicholas Adams, which closes : 
''and had issue John Adams his eldest eon." 

At the time of the Heralds' Visitation, 1564, Nicholas Adams lived in 
Waton and Tunstall. Waton is in the parish of Stoke-Gabriel between 
Totnes and Dartmouth. Tunstall, or Townstall, is about one half mile 
from Dartmouth. I have the entire Adams records of both parishes from 
the beginning until 1654. In the parish of Stoke-Gabriel we find, after 
the date of the Visitation : 

" 1578 — Oct. 18— Christopher child of Nicholas Adams Esq., bapt. 
1580— Jany 10 — Phillipp child of Nicholas Adams Esq., bapt. 
1582— June 14— Elizabeth child of Nicholas Adams Esq., bp. 
1583 — June 23 — Thomas child of Nicholas Adams Esq., bp." 

There was no other Nicholas Adams recorded in wills or otherwise in 
that part of the country, and we do not find any record of the death of any 
of these children. Col. Vivian in his Visitation of Devon does not even 
suggest that the family became extinct; on the contrary, he says: "No 
pedigree of this family was recorded in the Visitation of Devon 1620, 
and it has been found impossible to extend it with accuracy." 

As to the social status of Henry Adams of Braintree, he was without 
doubt a yeoman. Westcote in his " Devonshire," written in 1630, says con- 
cerning yeomen : " Many of these with us are gentlemen, descending from 
younger brothers." Whether our Henry Adams lived for some time in 
Devonshire before coming to New England cannot be decided, but consid- 
ering the long existing connection of the Adams families of Charlton-Adam 
and its neighborhood with localities in Devonshire, it would not seem im- 
probable ; and the tradition which President John Adams had engraved on 
the tomb of his ancestor may be correct. 

A few records of the neighborhood of Charlton-Adam which we have 
found in the search may be of interest. In the will of John Adams of 
Barton St. David, in 1603, he makes his son Henry Adams — who was 
at the time seemingly unmarried — his executor. This might have been 
our Henry Adams. Barton St. David is between Balstonsborough and 
Charlton-Adam, perhaps less than two miles from each, and about a mile 
from Kingweston. In 1609, in Charlton-Mackrell, one half mile from 
Charlton-Adam, and one mile and a half from Kingweston, we find the 
marriage record of "Henry Adams and Edith Squire" ; but if this was the 
marriage of lienry of Braintree, she was his second wife. The fact that 
his oldest son was born in 1604, and the second not until 1612, leaves an 
interval not otherwise well explained. Edith Squire was born in Charlton- 
Mackrell in 1587, the daughter of Henry Squire, inferentially the same 
Henry mentioned in Aspinwall's Notarial Records already quoted. 

Entirely aside from this article, it is possible that I have located an- 
other Adams emigrant. It is disputed by Savage whether Robert Adams 
came to New England from Devonshire or Yorkshire. In the parochial 
records of baptisms at Ottery St. Mary, Devonshire, I found the follow- 
ing: 

" 1602 — December — Robert Adams the sone of Peter Adams was baptised the 
xxii'^ day." 

This would agree with the probable date of his birth. Savage says he 
died Oct. 12, 1682, aged 80 years.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW-ENGLAND HISTORIC 
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

By Geo. A. Gordon, A.M., Recording Secretary.

NOTES AND QUERIES. 

Notes. 

FouK Boston Families. — Since publishing my notes on " Four Boston Fami- 
lies," in the Ri<X}ister, ante, vol. 58, page 305, several new facts have come ta 
light which correct and supplement the article. 

Holhrook. — Mr. Rufus King, of Yonkers, N. Y., advises me that the name of 
the ship which brought over Thomas Holbrook in 1635 is not known. In error 
I called the vessel the "Hopewell." 

Abiah Holhrook' s Knot-work.— My . Frederick W. Gookin sends me the follow- 
ing note which throws doubt on the originality of Abiah's masterpiece : 

" There is a special interest to me in your article in the REGisnat, in which 
you reproduce the title page to Abiah Holbrook's masterpiece now in the Har- 
vard University Library. The inner border used for this title page was copied 
from the title page of a book now in my possession, entitled ' A Copy Book En- 
riched with Great Variety of the most Useful! & Modish hands Adorned With a 
whole Alphabet of Great Letters, (One before every Example), Composed of 
divers New devised Knots and beautified with many other Curious Shapes & Flor- 
ishes. Fitted for the Profit and Delight of Ingenious Youth. By Thomas Watson 
Teacher of a Writing School at Newport Pagnell in the County of Bucks and 
others. Printed for & sold by Hen^. Overton without Newgate, & Robt. Sayer 
near Sergeants Inn Fleet Street.' The book, though without date, bears inter- 
nal evidence of having been published during the reign of Charles II., and the 
title page was engraved by Sturt, a seventeenth century engraver of some note. 
The copy in my hands is beyond all reasonable doubt the one which Holbrook 
used as a model in his seven years' task. It. came to me from my grandfather 
William Gookin of Rutland, Vt. He inherited it from his father, Samuel Gook- 
in of Boston, and Haverhill, N. H., who was the husband of Rebecca Holbrook 
Gray, Abiah's adopted daughter. She was undoubtedly the ' Rebecca Gookin, 
wife of Samuel, aged 49,' whose death Avas chronicled in the columns of the 
Massachusetts Mercury for April 3, 1798. This would seem to fix the date of 
her birth as in 1748-9. Samuel Gookin's first wife was Rebecca Swan, who 
was born Sept. 15, 1750. The date of her death I have not ascertained. Nor 
is it certain whether Rebecca Gray was Samuel Gookin's second or third wife. 
By his first wife he had a son Samuel, born in 1771. I should be very glad of 
information that may enable me to determine which of these Samuels married 
on Dec. 30, 1790, Catherine, daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Mirick) Adams of 
Charlestown, who was baptized June 11, 17G9. It is known that the younger 
Samuel died of small-pox, probably in the epidemic of 1792. His age on Dec. 
30, 1790, was but a few days more than 19 years, whereas Catherine was 21. 
The marriage license does not speak of Samuel as ' Junior.' The probability 
is that the elder Samuel was her husband. But whichever she married, there 
is little doubt that she, as well as tlie younger Samuel, fell a victim to the small- 
pox in 1792. Samuel Gookin's marriage to Rebecca Gray took place on July 17, 
1796. After her death, he married again, on Nov. 29, 1798, Sarah Kettell, who 
survived him, dying in June, 1741, at the age of 78. Her birth, therefore, was 
in 1763. Information that may enable me to determine her parentage would be 
very welcome." 

liebecca Holbrook Gray. — She and her sister Elizabeth (whose intention of 
marriage to Jesse Perry was published in Boston, Oct. 29, 1772) were undoubt- 
edly daughters of William Gray and Mary " Bures" who were married in Bos- 
ton, May 28, 1737. This Mary was the daughter of Charles Burroughs, and 
was born Mar. 5, 1717-18. I find no further record of these Grays, nor of 
Jesse Perry. 

Elizabeth and Mylam Alcock. — Mylam Alcock of Boston, son of John, mar- 
ried three times. By his first wife, Elizabeth Gent, whom he married Nov. 
2, 1704, he had one daughter, Elizabeth, who married George Yentlell, ancestor 
of the Boston Yendells. Elizabeth was a daughter of Thomas Gent, who 
moved to Boston about 1681, when we find his name on Boston tax lists. His 
first settlement in America, however, was in Maine, as we see by " York Deeds," 
vol. xii., fos. 366-07. In a deed dated Jan. 4, 1715, " Thomas Jent of Boston, 



1905.]

brewer, only son of Elizabeth Jeiit, heretofore of New Dartmouth, in Corn- 
wall, widow of John Jent of the same place, fisherman," sells land on the 
Sheepscott River which " Elizabeth Jent in IGDo bought from two Indian Sag- 
amores, Daniel and Dock Swash." A second deed, dated Feb. 7, 1728, is a con- 
veyance by the legal heirs of Thomas Gent of Boston, brewer, viz. : the widow, 
Sarah Gent; flve^children of Thomas and Sarah, viz: Thomas Gent of Boston, 
labourer, Hannah wife of John Tuckerman of Boston, trader, Mary wife of Ma- 
thew Nazro of Boston, surgeon, Abigail Mason, widow of Samuel Mason of 
Boston, Rachel Walker, widow of Moses Walker of Boston; one grandchild, 
Elizabeth Alcocke of Boston, spinster, daughter of Milon Alcocke of Boston, 
chairmaker, by his wife Elizabeth daughter of Thomas and Sarah Gent. Thomas 
Gent, then, was an early member of AVinter's and Trelawney's Maine Colony. 
His Maine lands are described also in " Maine Historical and Genealogical Re- 
corder," vol. vi, pages 47G-77, which shows that some land was given him by 
his father-in-law, John Taylor. Gent was an ensign in the Maine militia (see 
his testimony in Maine Historical Society's Collections, 2, vol. v., pages 38-44), 
and was forty-eight years old in 1G89. See also, in same series, vol. vi., p. 396, 
the petition of George Speere-, formerly of Braintree, dated 1688, in effect as 
follows : " That whereas your petitioner's wife's first husband, John Gent, was 
an ancient inhabitant of this town [New Dartmouth, in Cornwall, New Eng- 
land] and was possessed of considerable tracts of land, especially on this neck, 
and several other places, by purchase, which he enjoyed until the late Indian 
Wars; the time of his family's being at Boston he was cast away; when this 
place came to be settled (your petitioner having married the said widow) came 
with the rest and brought a considerable stock with him, but had no more privi- 
lege than any of the rest," etc. Sarah, the wife of Thomas Gent, was the 
daughter of John Taylor, but she had a more interesting connection with Bos- 
ton, for she was undoubtedly the Sarah Gent, legatee and kinswoman of Susan- 
na, widow of Rev. John Oxenbridge. Susanna Oxenbridge's will is given in 
Register, ante, vol. 44, pages 87-88, and mentions also her " Kinswoman Mary 
Taylor and kinsman Isaac Taylor." Susanna was the widow of a Mr. Abbott 
before her marriage with Mr. Oxenbridge, which perhaps took place in the Ber- 
mudas. What her family name was I do not know. I should be glad to know 
more about the Gent family, and also about Mathew Nazro who was a surgeon, 
called " Dr. Nazro" on Boston records, and seems a worthy character. This 
Maine connection with the Boston Yendells revives a possible theory as to their 
origin, to wit, that Yendell (which I believe was a Cornish name) was the same 
as Gendall, a family name found in Boston, the most distinguished bearer of 
which was Capt. Walter Gendall of Maine, an old Indian fighter, whose biogra- 
phy has been printed. Victor Channing Sanborn. 
Chicago, III. 



Packard-Smith. — Having many of the Leonard family papers, I am able to 
add to the Packard-Smith note in the Register, ante, page 107. 

John Smith lost his life in the expedition against Quebec in 1690. " Sarah 
Woodward aged 39 years or thereabouts testifleth & saith that John Smith se- 
nior formerly of Taunton about a month before he went out a souldier against 
Canada he the sd Smith & myselfe Sarah Woodward discourced about this girle 
hannah Smith & he then told me that when he first put her to Richard Birt he 
thought she would be better used than he saw she was & Further told me that 
lie had given them or him warning that she should be [treated] better & that if 
ever he did come whom (sic) again y^ he would take her away from them & fur- 
ther he the sd Smith told me the-reasons first because she was kept too nastie 
& that they had not performed their promise to her which was to teach her to 
read & write & sow & knit & trim &,c which thing hath bin neglected : but she 
hath bin hardly used & therefor if he came not whom anymore he desired me 
that I the sd Sarah Woodward would declare his mind to those that should 
take her away : for said he the sd Smith had neither given them any deed of 
gift of the child nor yet bound her to them by any Indenture nor yet ever would 
& further saith not. Sworn before me Thomas Leonard Associate Taunton 
Sept 11 1691." 

Sarah Woodward was Sarah, daughter and eldest child of Robert Grossman, 
being born in 1652 or 1653. This deposition is endorsed by Thomas Leonard: 
" Nicholas Stoughtons Evidences," and is additional evidence of the presence

ill Taunton of Nicholas Stoughton, who married there, 25 Feb., 1G92, Sarah, 
daughter of Hezekiah Hoar. 

Id the Register, vol. V., page 350, is given a pedigree of the Stoughtons of 
Stoughton in Surrey, furnished by the Rev. Joseph Hunter to James Savage. 
In the pedigree is a reference to Rose, daughter of Anthony Stoughton, being 
sent by her father to New England in 1643 with Capt. Stoughton, and that she 
there married an Otis. Mr. H. N. Otis infers that " Capt." Stoughton was Israel 
Stoughton, the Parliamentary soldier, who died in 1644, at Lincoln, Eng. The 
pedigree also gives Nicholas Stoughton of New England, a cousin of her father, 
who was as likely to be her guardian as anyone. In 1G88, Nicholas Stoughton 
had a one-half purchase right at Taunton, and he appeared there earlier, having 
married, 17 Feb., 1674, Elizabeth Knap. Walter K. Watkins.

English Notes. — It will be of interest to Americans who desire to have 
searches made in English records for their ancestors, to hear that a new manu- 
script index to Chancery Proceedings has recently been placed on the shelves 
of the Search Room in the Public Record Office, London. It covers the impor- 
tant period 1621 — 1625. These most interesting documents are indexed for the 
first time. 

A short note of the will of Richard White appeared in the Register, ante, 
page 109, but it is now thought desirable to give a fuller abstract: Will of 
Richard White of the Cliffe nere Lewes, Sussex, Brasier, aged, 27 Nov. 1679.

Notes from English Chancery Proceedings.— It may interest some one 
to know that the name given by Mr. Fothergill, on page 219, ante, of the Reg- 
ister, should be Lloyd, not " Floyd." 

William Clopton was ancestor of a well-known Virginia family, and as he 
had a grandson named Waldegrave Clopton it seems probable that the family 
was a branch of the one from which the Winthrops descend.

Richards-Fuller. — The statement that John Richards, born 20 (5) 1673, 
married Judith Fairbanks, appears in Morse's Richards Genealogy (1861), pajre 
107, and this error has been repeated in several publications, notably in the 
second volume of Dedham Records, page viii, in the sketch of Hannah Shut- 
tleworth, who was a descendant of John and Judith Richards, and in a sketch 
in the Dedham Historical Register, vol. xii, page 109, of Mrs. Mary (Rich- 
ards) Tyler (wife of Rev. Andrew Tyler, of the third precinct church of Ded- 
ham), whose portrait, by Copley, is in the library of the New-England Historic 
Genealogical Society. There being no mention of a Judith Fairbanks in Ded- 
ham records or the Fairbanks Genealogy, John Richards's wife must be found in 
some other family. 

John^ Fuller, son of Thomas,^ had a daughter Judith, born 21 Nov., 1673, 
who married a Richards, as appears in the will of John Fuller (Suftblk 
Co. Wills, file 4132), dated 8 Dec, 1718, proved 26 Jan., 1718-19. The only 
Judith Richards whose name appears in the Suffolk Co. Registry of Deeds 
was the wife or widow of John Richards of Dedham. No record of the 
marriage of John Richards and Judith has been found, but that it was as early 
as 8 Mar., 1694-5, is shown by the deed in Suflblk Co. Registry, Vol. 73, fol. 
35, when John Richards and Judith his wife conveyed to Nathaniel Richards 
six acres in Fowle Meadow, " Being all our interest in the farm that was our 
grandfather Edward Richards's commonly called Cooke's farm and was given 
by deed in part and by will in part by our said grandfather to our Hon'd father 
John Richards, deceased." This deed was not recorded until 11 Feb., 1746, more 
than fifty years after its execution. Francis H. Fuller.

Poole.— Since the publication of the Poole Genealogy, it has been discovered 
that the wife of Edward^ Poole of Weymouth, Mass., 1635, was Sarah, daughter 
of John and Jane (Porthesy) Pynney, son of John and Johane ( ) Pynney, all 
of Broadway, co. Somerset, England. She was a niece of Humphrey Pynney, 
the early settler at Windsor, Conn. Her name was learned from the will of 
her uncie, Edmund Pynney of Broadway. AspinWall's Notarial Records (page 
12) mention a bequest to her by her said uncle. Stiles's History of Windsor 
mentions the will. 

The only wife of Joseph^ Poole (Edward^) was Elizabeth,'' daughter of John*

It is stated on page 311 of the " Bailey Genealogy" that Thomas^ (Thomas*) 
Bailey married second, widow Hannah (Rogers) Pratt, and that she died May 
29, 1721, aged 71 years; and on page 74 of "The Pratt Family," that SamueP 
(Matthew^) Pratt married, July 19, 1660, Hannah Rogers, and that she died 
Oct. 16, 1715. This gravestone record would seem to correct an error in each 
of these statements, as well as in the approximate-ages of the children of John* 
Rogers as given by Hon. Josiah H. Drummond on page 8 of the second edition 
of " The John Rogers Families in Plymouth and Vicinity."

Old- Ulster. An Historical and Genealogical Magazine, Kingston, X. Y., 
published by the Editor, Benjamin Myer Brink, is a publication wnich embraces 
within its "sphere" an interesting held, the territory originally called T7t€ 
Esopus, now comprised within the counties of Ulster, Orange, Greene, Dela- 
ware, and Sullivan, in the State of New York. Its chief town, Kingston, first 
settled in 1652, was the scene of a notorious massacre by the Indians in 1663, 
and was the first Capitol of the State in 1777, but was totally destroyed by fire 
the same year by the British. It is the purpose of this magazine to rescue and 
preserve in its pages the rich stores of historical and genealogical material with 
which this field abounds, and there are but few early Dutch families in this 
country whose lines of ancestry do not carry them back, directly or indirectly, 
to old Ulster, while the English, Prench, German and Scotch elements of its 
early population are well known. Tne magazine is issued monthly, and should 
command unstinted support. 

Wetherbee Genealogy. — Mrs. Ida Parr Miller, 18 Lawrence St., "SYakefield,

if sufiicient subscriptions are received to defray the cost. 

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be comiuunicated, 
especially service under the C. S. Government, the holding of other offices, 
graduation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and 
dates of birtli, marriage, residence, and death. When there are more than one 
Christian name, they should all be given in full if possible. No initials should 
be used when the full name is known.

cient subscriptions warrant, be published. All families of the name and de-

warding family records, making corrections, additions, etc., as it is to be hoped 
the genealogy will be ready for the press in a few mouths.

The Aldis Family of Dedham, Wrentham, Boxhury and Franklin, Mass., 1640- 
ISOO. By Frederick H. Whitin. Reprint from Dedbam Historical Reg- 
ister, Vol. xiv. Dedham Transcript Press. 1905. 8vo. pp. 28. 
The founder of the American family of Aldis— often spelled " Aldus"— was 
Nathan Aldis, of Dedham. Of the family in England, ancestors of Nathan, 
nothing has been discovered. The present sketch may serve to attract atten- 
tion to some problems here presented. Ip is well printed, and, though short, 
is provided with an index. 

Genealogy of the Blish Family in Amei-ica. 1637-1905. Compiled by James 
Knox Blish. Kewanee, Illinois. 1905. Large Svo. pp. xi. 4-366. 111. 
The family herein recorded is descended from Abraham Blish, who was in 
Duxbury in 1637. No effort has been made by the compiler of this volume to 
trace the family in England. The genealogy is arranged on a simple plan, and 
brings the descendants of the immigrant ancestor down to the ninth generation. 
There are extensive notes on the Fuller, Hull, Lothropp, and Jones families, 
which add much to the value of the work. It is well printed and bound, and 
thoroughly indexed.

This genealogy as far as the fifth generation, was published in the Register 

for July, 1904. With the additions here included, the records are brought down 

to the present time. The illustrations, the index, and the blank leaves for 

" Continuation of Record" complete a volume in which, says the preface, the 

line of descent which it contains " is absolutely proved."

1901. WiLiMENA H. (Eliot) Emerson, Chairman, Ellsworth Eliot, M.D.,

In 1854 was published the " Genealogy of the Eliot Family," by William II. 
Eliot, Jr. Although this is called the second edition of that work, and not 
much besides the genealogy proper of the former volume has been retained in 
this, yet the first edition will be by no means valueless to those who have it. 
The genealogical additions found in the present publication are the family of 
Bennett Eliot, the apostle's father, and the extension of some of the female ^^

The portion of this work relating to the family in England is of unusual ex- 
tent and importance, containing wills, extracts from parish registers, and notes 
from Chancery proceedings and lay subsidy rolls. The wills alone occupy near- 
ly thirty pages. The two maps, ancient and modern, belong to this section, 
being maps of the county of Suffolk. The American division of the genealogy 
is very abundant in biography, and will surely, as the editor believes, be of ser- 
vice to future historians by reason of this noticeable feature. There are numer- 
ous illustrations, and three excellent indexes. So meritorious a work deserves 
to have been printed on better paper.

pp. 408. 111. 

Beginning with the " Historical Outline," this work comprises " Ransom Sol- 
diers from Connecticut, Revolutionary War," "Civil and Military Appoint- 
ments, Colonial Records," " Ransom Soldiers from Massachusetts, Revolution- 
ary War," and '• Genealogical Records" which include thirty-six " Biographical 
Sketches." interspersed throughout a genealogy commencing with Robert Ran- 
som of Plymouth, Mass., who came to America at some unascertained date be- 
fore 1654. With clear print, the book is illustrated with nearly forty portraits. 
The index is of unusual excellence, each entry consisting of name, birthplace 
or residence, and " to whom married." One can readily believe that, as said in 
the preface, this volume contains " as nearly an accurate record of the Col- 
chester Branch of the family as can be made at the present time."

Life of General Philip Schuyler. 1733-1804. By Bayakd Tuckerman. New 
York: Dodd, Mead and Company. 1905. 8vo. pp. 277. III. 
This interesting memoir is based on Schuyler's papers and letter books, on 
the Gates papers of the New York Historical Society, the archives of the State 
Department in Washington and'other original historical collections. It gives 
a detailed account of his military and political career and furnishes an interest- 
ing picture of his early training and education, both conducive to the syste- 
matic methods and independent thinking for which this Revolutionary officer, a 
man of pure Dutch extraction, was justly esteemed. 

The humiliating loss of his command in the army is shown to have been the 
result of inter-colonial prejudice and seltish intrigues, and the manner in which 
he accepted this flagrant injustice proves that he was a gentleman and a patriot 
of the highest rank. Many extracts from contemporary letters add to the 
value of the biography and an index increases its usefulness. a. l. w.

The present volume of this admirable work is In every way as valuable as its 
predecessors. As the public records have scarcely any items of the deaths oc- 
curring in the period between 1762 and 1830, those appearing in the newspapers, 
and published in this collection, will be found indispensable to the genealogist. 
Those from the Providence Journal are a continuation from the previous volume 
[XII] of the Vital Records. In beginning the series from the Gazette, Mr. 
Arnold takes occasion to give an excellent account of that periodical.

This volume departs from the hitherto approved style of such registers, and 
we think it an improvement. The lineage of each member is printed in full, 
with year dates; and the ancestors who confer eligibility are enumerated, with 
citations of service. This affords an opportunity for correction, which we em- 
brace so far as to say that the service of Lieut. Gershom Flagg of Woburn 
(1690), cited on page 90, had nothing to do with the expedition to Port Royal 
(1700).

DEATHS. 



David Lufkin Mansfield, school teacher, 
historian and genealogist, died April 13, 
1905, aged sixty- seven years, at his 
home in Dummerston Centre, Vermont, 
The cause of his death w^as chronic rheu- 
matism, which brought on complica- 
tions. His most important historical 
work was his history of Dummerston, 
published separately and in volume 5 of 
Hemenway's Vermont Historical Ga- 
zetteer, in 1891. In that history is pub- 
lished Mr. Mansfield's autobiography, 
from which the following is taken : 

" David L. Mansfield was born in 
Salisbury, N. H.. Sept. 17, 1837, and is 
the oldest and only one living of six 
children, sons of Jesse J. and Hannah 
(Lufkin) Mansfield. He had few ad- 
vantages for schooling until after four- 
teen years of age. Beginning in 1852, 
he worked on a farm during the greater 
portion of each year, and attended school 
for three winters in the village of Wal- 
pole, N. H. Six terms of school under 
the instruction of Prof. L. F. Ward at 
Westminster, two at Papermill Village, 
N. H., and one at Powers Institute, 
Bernardston, Mass., concluded his 
academical course of study. The mis- 
fortune of ill health, caused by rheu- 
matism, changed his course of life at 
the age of twenty- two years. Instead 
of being a farmer, as anticipated, he 
engaged in school teaching, which, thus 
far in life, has been his principal occu- 
pation. 

In 1861 he became a resident of 
Dummerston. March 11, 1873, he mar- 



ried Clarissa (Farr) Estabrook. Be- 
ginning in 1857, he taught district 
schools four successive winters in 
Walpole, N. H., where he was a resident 
from 1852 until he removed to Dum- 
merston. Since that time he has been 
connected with the schools of the latter 
tOAvn as teacher and as town superin- 
tendent." 

Mr. Mansfield's grandparents were 
Aaron and Betsey (Jaquith) Mansfield, 
who were married in Alstead, N. H.» 
and his great- grandparents were Dea- 
con Ezra and Rebecca (Kenuey) Mans- 
field, who were married in New Ips- 
wich, N. H. He leaves a widow. Sir. 
Mansfield had been chairman of the 
board of school directors, also town 
auditor for a long series of years. He 
was a member of the Congregational 
church of Dummerston, and was church 
treasurer. 

Mr. Mansfield possessed a studious, 
painstaking mind, and had done a large 
amount of valuable work in his study of 
local history and genealogy. Besides 
his Dummerston history, his history 
of the Kathan family, and other work 
requiring original research, he contrib- 
uted historical and genealogical articles 
to the Vermont Phcenix through a long 
series of years. All of this work was 
done in the most faithful and conscien- 
tious way, and in the face of serious 
physical infirmities whicb would have 
been allowed to discourage and dis- 
qualify a man of less energy and devo- 
tion. — Vermoni Phcenix.

HON. LUCIUS MANLIUS BOLTWOOD. 

By Hon. George Sheldon. 

" Americans of royal descent " is a high sounding phrase. As 
usually interpreted it refers to those who can trace a lineage to some 
one who at some time sat upon the English throne ; it matters not 
whether the seat was obtained by invasion and rapine or by treason, 
revolt, and murder ; whether the line comes direct through bloody 
tyrants or by side issues, — if only it has been labeled " royal." The 
term is a good one, however, and can be put to better use. It is a 
high honor to be able to trace one's line to the kings and queens who 
peacefully invaded New England, and, braving all odds, founded 
dynasties on the bleak sands of Cape Cod, amid the jagged rocks and 
tangled swamps of the Bay, or on the broad alluvial fields of the Con- 
necticut Valley. From such an ancestry Lucius Manlius Boltwood 
could claim direct descent through more than fifty lines. In a brief 
paper like this it is impossible to give even the baldest record of 
such an heredity. These men walked in varyinor paths, each a sturdy, 
independent traveller, seeking breadth and freedom from oppressive 
religious thrall, afar from their native land. They were each in the 
van of that great wave of civil and theological betterment which car- 
ried them out of England, and which is still slowly, but surely 
spreading over the world. Whatever may be said of environment, 
no one can doubt that in such a case as this, heredity must be a 
potent factor in the development of Mr. Boltwood. Of such royal 
blood he had a right to be proud. Among these men, two crossed 
in the Mayflower-, but nearly all left their homes during the reign 
of that apostle of untruth, Charles I. 

A.S all come-outers must be, each of these men was individual, — 
not one in a conglomerate mass, welded together by time and cir- 
cumstance. In this condition of things we have no right to expect 
that, while they could and did unite against an oppressive theology 
at home, their religious ideas should be moulded in one and the 
same form here. As the natural outcome of such a condition, we 

VOL. LIX. 24 



342 Lucius Manlius Boltwood. [Oct. 

find interminable divisions and. quarrelling on points of belief, which 
are to us so small and meaningless as not to be discovered with the 
naked eye. 

I. Robert Boltwood, one of these men, was an immigrant before 
1648 ; a freeman 1658. When the church at Wethersfield, Conn., 
was rent in twain by one of these puerile quarrels over some particu- 
lar interpretation of certain scripture texts, he was one of those 
under the lead of the redoubtable John Russell, who shook the 
Connecticut dust off their feet, went up the River, and founded the 
town of Hadley, in 1659. Little is known about the career of 
Robert Boltwood in Hadley, but that little is to his credit ; he earned 
the title of sergeant in the militia, and we see his mettle in the act 
noted below. The Hadley corn mill, three miles north of the vil- 
lage, was burnt by the Indiana. The owners declined to replace it, 
but bold Robert Boltwood rebuilt it in 1677, and ran it until his 
death in 1684. His son Samuel is found to be the miller in 1685. 
The wife of Robert was Mary, of unknown parentage. She died 
May 14, 1687. Their children were: Samuel, married Sarah 
Lewis; Sarah, married, May 31, 1666, Isaac Warner, of Hatfield ; 
Lydia, married, April 2, 1674, John Warner, of Springfield; 
Martha, married, April 1, 1674, Daniel Warner, of Hatfield ; Mary, 
married, Oct. 24, 1667, James Bebee. 

II. Samuel, only son of Robert, settled in Hadley. He mar- 
ried Sarah, daughter of Captain William Lewis, of Farmington, 
Connecticut. They had five sons and five daughters. Like his 
father, he was a sergeant, and a miller; he is called by tradition a 
man of remarkable strength and bravery ; he was one of that patri- 
otic band which, under the lead of Captain William Turner, broke 
the back of Philip's War, at Peskeompskut, May 19, 1676. It 
was on this occasion that his friend Benjamin Wait won his first 
laurels, and young Jonathan Wells immortalized his name as the 
"young hero of the Connecticut Valley." 

Samuel was a soldier stationed at Deerfield when the awful deso- 
lation of Feb. 29, 1704, fell upon that town. When knowledge of 
the attack reached Hadley, his three sons, Samuel Jr., Robert, and 
Ebenezer, knowing their father was involved, joined the trooji which 
rode rapidly to the rescue. Samuel and his three sons were all in 
the desperate fight on Deerfield Meadows for the recovery of the 
captive inhabitants. In the same gallant band which rode and 
fought that morning were John, Ebenezer, and Samuel Warner, 
sons of Martha Boltwood ; and Daniel Warner, a son of Sarah 
Boltwood. Here, then, were one son and seven grandsons of 
Robert the immigrant. 

Sergeant Samuel and his son Robert were killed in the unequal 
combat on the Meadows. So much, then, do we, the sons of Deer- 
field, owe to the ready pluck and valor brought over in the blood 
of Sergeant Robert Boltwood. 



1905.] Lucius Manlius Boltwood. 343 

When the battle was over, it became a sad duty of the survivors 
to gather up the bodies of those who fell upon the field, and with 
the men, women, and children murdered in the village, to lay them 
together in a common burial. Thus it came to pass, that tlie first 
born of the Boltwood blood in America, the ancestor of Lucius Man- 
lius, found his last bed in the same grave where many of my own 
lineage were laid on that dreadful day. A plain, enduring monu- 
ment marks, the spot where the mingled ashes of two generations of 
Boltwoods, and two generations of Sheldons, were laid to rest for 
aye, within the sound of the murmuring Pocumtuck. Hard by, 
within the same God's Acre, were laid in later years other descend- 
ants of Sarah Boltwood. There is a kinship through common suf- 
fering as well as common blood, and the feeling that through both 
I am joined to Mr. Boltwood asserts itself now, and claims this 
recognition. It may well be that here was laid the foundation upon 
which there were built so many unions between these families In 
later years. 

III. Solomon, the youngest son of Samuel, born July 2, 1694, 
and so nine years old when his father was slain, removed to Amherst 
about 1737. Nothing is found to distinguish him from his fellows. 
He died April 20, 1762. His wife was Mary, daughter of John 
Norton, of Farmington, Conn,, widow of John Pantry, of Hartford. 
She died May 24, 1763, aged 76. They had three sons and three 
dausfhters. 

ly. William, oldest son of Solomon and Mary, born Feb. 4, 
1725, settled in Amherst, was a Lieut., served on the frontier in 
the French and Indian wars, and died May 2, 1799. His wife was 
Mary, daughter of Ebenezer Sheldon, of Northampton, born Dec. 
8, 1724, married Dec. 10, 1750, died May 10, 1809. They had 
five daughters and two sons. The older, John, served In the Pevo- 
lutlonary War, and died In 1803. The younger : — 

V. William, born May 4, 1766, remained in Amherst. He was 
a blacksmith and farmer, possessing a remarkable memory, great 
firmness and decision of character, good judgment and sterling com- 
mon sense. He died Aug. 15, 1835. His first wife was Eunice, 
daughter of Stephen and Ruth (Church) Noble, of Westfield, born 
in 1770, married Aug. 2, 1789, died June 6, 1807. William mar- 
ried second, Feb. 18, 1808, Irene, daughter of Isaac and Submit 
(Graves) Hubbard of Sunderland, and widow of Asahel Clark of 
Amherst. She was sister to Stephen Hubbard, who had married 
Lucy Boltwood, his sister. Mrs. Irene Boltwood died Aug. 6, 
1831. William mai-rled third, Feb. 6, 1833, Olive, daughter of Joel 
Smith, widow of Lucius Hastings. He had three sons and six 
daughters. 

VI. Lucius, son of William and Eunice, was born March 16, 
1792, the second of nine children. William was a farmer with 
small means, and could only aid his son, who was earnest in desir-

iiig an education, by giving him his time in the winter. So the 
aspiring youth worked his way, — nine months on the farm and three 
months at the village school, later at the new Academy, and finally 
by teaching school. He was a graduate of Williams College in 
1814. This college was selected because it was near by, and he 
could walk home on occasion, the distance being only about fifty 
miles. He settled in Amherst and became one of her leading citi- 
zens. He read law with Hon. Samuel F. Dickinson, and was ad- 
mitted to the Hampshire Bar in 1817. About this time the 
Unitarian movement in the Connecticut Valley, which came to the 
front with the settlement of Rev. Samuel Willard at Deerfield, was 
so spreading that it occasioned a serious disturbance among the 
conservatives, and in 1819, a strong effort was made to establish a 
"Literary Institution," avowedly to check the advance of the more 
liberal belief. Young lawyer Boltwood was one of the foremost in 
promoting this measure in defence of the Calvinistic creed, and by 
his activity and eloquence was able to command considerable influ- 
ence in the community, in securing the location of the adverse camp 
in his native town. His heart was filled with great joy and pride 
when Amherst College became a reality in 1821. Mr. Boltwood 
was secretary of Amherst College, 1828-1864; was commissioner 
o^ its Charity Fund, 1833-1866 ; was president of Amherst Bank, 
1855-6; was a justice^ of the peace with an extensive business. 
He was a vigorous newspaper writer ; had a decided taste for genea- 
logical and historical research, and was a standard authority on 
these subjects in his native town, rivaled only by his wife. He 
may be called by his manner and habits a Gentleman of the Old 
School ; he habitually wore a rufiled shirt, a blue broadcloth swallow- 
tail coat with gilt buttons. Even down to his latest years he retained 
an erect form, an elastic step, and a dignified bearing. Originally 
a Whig in politics, he was one of the founders of the Liberty Party, 
when arose the first organized political revolt against negro slavery, 
and he was its candidate for governor of Massachusetts in 1841. 
In addition to his public occupations, he was a good all-round man 
of affairs, and accumulated a fair competence for the time and place. 
Lucius Boltwood married, Aug. 30, 1824, Fanny Haskins, daugh- 
ter of Kev. Mase Shepard, a minister at Little Compton, R. I., and 
of Deborah, daughter of Capt. John Haskins, of Boston. Ruth Has- 
kins, a sister of Deborah, was the mother of Ralph Waldo Emerson. 
Soon after the death of Rev. Mr. Shepard, in 1821, his widow with 
her children all removed to the village of Amherst, which was then 
aspiring to crown herself with a college, and this family became at 
once prominent in the educational forces of the town. Fanny, then 
seventeen years old, was the eighth child of this family. She be- 
came the mother of eight sons and one daughter. Her first child, 
Lucius Manlius, was born in the house of her mother, known as 
the Shepard house for many years, before being destroyed by fire.

In 1835, Lucius Boltwood built a stately mansion on a lot ad- 
joining the college. Here in the home of Lucius and Fanny H. Bolt- 
wood, simple, open-door, yet elegant hospitality was the rule. Here 
were entertained by the brilliant hostess many of the brightest stars 
in the intellectual firmament of New England during the middle of 
the nineteenth century. Here came successive governors of the 
Commonwealth. Here came her cousin Ralph Waldo Emerson in 
the zenith of his fiime, as a thinker and an exponent of the higher 
ideals ; Rufus Choate, the unique and fascinating orator ; Henry 
Ward Beecher, of national fame, eminent in many fields ; Wendell 
Phillips, with whom her husband was in full sympathy in the anti- 
elavery struggle. And in later years Lucius Manlius had the satis- 
faction of seeing these two men congratulate themselves and the 
country on the success of their persistent labor. Here came also 
Oliver Wendell Holmes with his inimitable sallies of wit and pathos. 
In short, as said by a friend, " the first literary and political figures 
of that generation were entertained in that fine old pillared house 
under the shadow of Amherst College." In the social hours by the 
Boltwood fireside this intensely interesting group discussed on the 
broadest scale everything pertaining to theology, legal lore, or the 
wrongs of humanity. Good was praised, the bad unhesitatingly 
censured, and plans for the betterment of the world were formu- 
lated ; all of which was open to the eager and receptive mind of 
the boyish listener. We may add to the circle the Faculty of 
Amherst College, including men of international reputation, not the 
least among them being a brother of the hostess, Charles Upham 
Shepard, the distinguished mineralogist, who was complimented by 
Sir Robert Peel, at a public dinner in England, as the first authority 
in the world upon meteorites. 

In this hospitable home upon the hill. Madam Fanny Boltwood 
reigned supreme, with method and kindness. She was the life and 
light of husband and home, guiding domestic aflTairs and rearing 
her children. Friends and strangers were alike welcome to her 
hospitable board. She was also the stay of the household in the 
days of their deepest sorrow, as one by one their children passed 
beyond the veil. Mrs. Boltwood died April 25, 1888, sincerely 
mourned by a community in which she had been an active, useful, 
and loving member for more than three score years. Her husband 
had died July 10, 1872. After the death of Mrs. Fanny Boltwood, 
the fine old mansion passed into the hands of Amherst College. It 
was named "Hitchcock Hall," in honor of her distinguished Presi- 
dent, who for years, in the long past, had been a weekly visitor 
within its hospitable walls. 

VII. Lucius Manlius, the oldest child of Lucius and Fanny H., 
was born June 8, 1825, in the home of his grandmother Shepard. 
It is useless to ask was he more influenced by environment or heredi- 
ty ; both conspired in his favor and were equally potent. He was 



346 LuciiLS Manlius Boliwood. [Oct. 

the first grandchild, and naturally he was a f^ivorite of his loving 
grandmother and proud aunts. The Shepards, as has been said, 
were a family of note, very conservative, but refined and in- 
tellectual by inheritance ; and young Lucius was largely under 
their influence in the formative period. Here, as well as in the 
elevating home of his parents, he came in contact with men and 
women of Stirling worth. What better opportunities could be de- 
sired ! One has said, referring to the Boltwood mansion, "The in- 
fluence of this stately and delightful home made Lucius Manlius, 
while a youth, a person of fine bearing, with a certain air of dis- 
tinction ; * * his personal traits were courtesy, cordiality, a win- 
ning address, and an interest in each one with whom he spoke, 
* * tl>e lowly as well as the well-born." 

While a mere boy, he had been largely diverted from the usual 
boyhood life. He was the first born, and became the only survivor 
of four children who left him one by one. It is a pathetic figure 
which we see, a boy with a scarf of black crape tied about his arm, 
as was the custom of the time, himself expecting soon to follow his 
brothers and sister, keeping aloof from his mates and shrinking 
from observation. But rebounding from his unusual sorrows, he 
again joined in the social sports of his mates, running, ball-playing 
and swimming in summer, and skating in winter, in all of which he 
excelled. Before all others he chose the companionship of his 
father and mother, and this intimacy continued to the last. It is 
said that "filial reverence and the confidential relationship existing 
between the son and his father and mother was a remarkable 
characteristic" of Lucius Manlius. On his father's grounds was 
a garden and an orchard, and the young man devoted much time 
to the cultivation and improvement of the trees, with a notable 
result in the quality and yield of the fruit. Many a choice basket 
he was able to serve for distinguished guests of the family. Through 
his love of horticulture he became affiliated with the Hampshire and 
Franklin Agricultural Society, and in later years served as its 
secretary. His father and his aunts often took the boy on long 
journeys, and his delight on seeing the beauties of nature, and his 
adventures on the road or in the towns which he visited, made a 
life-long impression which in later years he was wont to recall for 
his own pleasure or that of his family. 

At the age of seven, he began school life at Miss Sellon's school, 
and in 1834 he attended the Manual Labor School of Hon. Kodol- 
phus B. Hubbard. Then followed academic training at the local 
Academy until 1839, when he entered Amherst College at the age 
of fourteen. His college life was uneventful. He obtained more 
than the usual amount of college honors. He joined the "Church 
of Christ in Amherst College," and had no connection with any 
other. He was graduated Aug. 10, 1843. After teaching school 
at the Academy in New Britain, Conn., in the winter of 1844, 



1905.] Lucius Manlius Boltwood. 347 

he set himself seriously to reading law, inclining to follow the pro- 
fession of his father. But probably by the advice of his maternal 
relatives he turned his mind to theology. He left home for the An- 
dover Theological Seminary, Oct. 23, 1844. His closing thesis for 
the year 1845 was on " The interference of parties with private action 
one of the most weighty objections against them.'' The next year 
he would be a voter, and the subject of parties and party allegiance 
was upon him. His second year in the study of theology was spent 
in the Theological Institute of Connecticut, at East Windsor. He 
closed his connection there, Aug. 27, 1846, by speaking on "The 
Fathers of New England." 

Lucius Manlius had inherited from both father and mother a taste 
for history and genealogy; his mother especially appears to have 
been one of those rare treasures to the antiquary, one whose mind 
was a well filled store-house of anecdotes and dates, perfectly reliable, 
and always ready for use. The youth became early interested in 
these studies, but more particularly in genealogy ; he began an ac- 
tive correspondence with Sylvester Judd, which ended only with 
the death of the historian. There had been no intermittance in his 
interest in these subjects while at Andover or in Connecticut, and he 
did valuable work in both places, as the pages of the Register will 
bear witness. Oct. 7, 1846, he was elected a Corresponding Mem- 
ber of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, and when 
on his way to Andover, for a third year in theologic study, he 
stopped in Boston. From his diary, which he kept from 1845 for 
a few years, we read under date of Oct. 20, 1846 : — 

"I visited during the day the Genealogical Rooms and found Mr. 
Drake very polite. This gentleman keeps the Antiquarian Book- 
store on Cornhill, is Corresponding Secretary of the New-England 
Historic Genealogical Society. This is a young Society, having 
been incorporated by the Legislature a little more than a year ago. 
Its object is to investigate the early history of New England and 
New England settlers. I also called at the rooms of the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society in Tremont Street and presented the 
letter handed me by Rev. Mr. Tyler for Rev. Mr. Felt, the Libra- 
rian of the Society. Mr. Felt was very cordial and gave me liberty 
of consulting any of the books I might see fit. In the evening I 
called on Mr. Isaac F. Shepard, Esq., a gentleman with whom I 
had previously corresponded regarding the early settlers of New 
England bearing the name of Shepard. I found him very pleasant. 
He invited me to call again and take dinner, tea, or pass the night 
according as it might suit my convenience." After another call upon 
Mr. Drake at his bookstore, Mr. Boltwood left Boston for Andover. 
We may infer that his heart was as much set upon history and gene- 
alogy as upon theology. This is discernible all along. At his gradu- 
ation from Andover, Sept. 1, 1847, he chose to speak of "The 
Early Preachers of New England." Sept. 11, he left Amherst with 



S4S. Lucius Manlius Boltwood, [Oct. 

his father on a two months' tour to Michigan. He had been licensed 
to preach by the Andover Association, and he preached nearly 
every Sunday while absent. Returning to Amherst he now became 
an important inmate of the home ; his study was carefully guarded bv 
his mother from interruptions by the brood of young brothers and 
cousins, and from all. these he generally held himself aloof, devoting 
himself earnestly to his profession, finding recreation in the orchard 
and garden. In his father's absence he took his place in the family. 
For several years he remained at home. Amherst was a centre of 
supply for the roundabout towns, and he was often called to oc- 
cupy temporarily vacant pulpits. He was twenty-two years old, 
slender in form, dignified in movement, with smooth face, light 
hair and fair complexion. "Squire Boltvvood's son " often surprised 
his congregation by his satisfactory service. He had several eligi- 
ble calls to settle, but declined all, and was never ordained. It is 
said that " in his own judgment of himself at maturity he was not 
sure that he was adapted to that part of the ministerial oflSce." I 
suppose the truth is, as a mutual friend has recently said, " he was 
a born genealogist," and thenceforth his devotion to that science 
was unremitting, and all other occupations were only subsidiary. 

In 1852 he was made Corresponding Member of the New York 
Historical Society. In 1852 the committee in charge of the Am- 
herst College library felt the need of a guiding hand there, and 
finding in Mr. Boltwood " a young man eminently qualified by his 
peculiar tastes, talents, and acquirements " for that service, he was 
appointed librarian by the trustees, and duly installed. * Here he 
was in his native element ; here his mental make-up and systematic 
mind had free scope. He found the library of little value to 
professors and students through need of care ; he left it vitalized 
and in all respects what a college library should be. In 1856 he 
was made Corresponding Member of the Connecticut Historical So- 
ciety, and from 1868 to 1872 he was the Kecordlng Secretary of 
that Society. In 1858 he was made Honorary Member of the Ver- 
mont Historical Society, and in 1859 of the New Hampshire His- 
torical Society. He was state senator in 1860, serving on the 
Educational Committee, and was chairman of the Committee on the 
Library. A Senator said of him, "He takes to law-making quite 
readily, always considering a proposition carefully before voting 
upon it. He is not one of the talking members, another .evidence 
that he will make a good legislator." From 1861 to 1865 he was 
the postmaster at Amherst, under the appointment of President 
Lincoln. 

On the death of Sylvester Judd, in 1860, while his Histbry of Had- 
ley was in the press, Mr. Boltwood took up the work, and, adding his 
own collections to the unorganized material left by Mr. Judd, he 
edited and carried through the Genealogical department of the His- 
tory, which is considered an authority and is of rare value. 



1905.] Lucius Manlius BoUwoocL 349 

In 1867 he went to Washington, D. C, to act as assistant libra- 
rian under the noted A. R. Spofford. His work was wholly in 
catalop^uing books. Mr. Spoiford says, " His information in mat- 
ters of history (especially in local American history), biography 
and genealogy was remarkably extensive and there seemed to be no 
limit to his personal interest in all inquiries connected with these 
subjects " ; he was noted for his " indefatigable industry." At the 
end of a year, he was offered the position of librarian of the Young 
Men's Institute at Hartford, and he returned north largely induced 
by the desire to be near his parents. He retained this office from 
1868 to 1875. His successor in the office "found a great deal of 
his work, all done with the same exquisite neatness and precision, 
that I could never hope to equal. He was by nature a classifier 
and cataloguer." In 1873 he superintended the publication of its 
catalogue of 20,000 volumes. " The patience and accuracy required 
in this profession had been to a large extent developed by his gen- 
ealogical studies, the work he really loved best, and in which he 
had attained to the greatest eminence " ; he knew the inside of books 
as well as the outside; "he made no display of knowledge, but he 
had it." This was a circulating library, and other qualifications 
than zeal and intelligence were called for ; these were not found 
wanting. The frequenters of the library always found Mr. Bolt- 
wood courteous and patient when these virtues were often severely 
tried ; he was ever ready to give information, and apt in illustrating 
his statements with some personal anecdote calculated to fix it in 
the memory. 

In 1876, Mr. Boltwood was invited to become a Fellow of the 
Royal Historical Society of Great Britain. In 1878 he published 
his most notable work, the " History and Genealogy of the Noble 
Family in America," a volume of 870 pages. This contains the 
results of a most faithful research extending over more than thirty 
years. 

In 1879, Mr. Boltwood removed to New Haven, where in Yale 
University he preferred to give his sons a classical and legal educa- 
tion. About this time the care of the large landed estate of his 
father in Michigan fell upon him. These lands had been neglected 
until there was confusion in claim and title. In the litigation which 
followed, he was found to be a keen man of business ; his early 
training in law came in full play ; his habits of patient investigation 
proved invaluable in bringing the tangle into order, and establishing 
his claims and title. His character for integrity and honesty of 
purpose came to be recognized in Michigan, as it had long been in 
New EnMand, where he was considered a man with hio;h ideals of 
life and consistent endeavor to hew close to the straight line of duty 
as he saw it marked out. One who made the acquaintance of Mr. 
Boltwood late in life says, "I never knew a man who believed 
what he believed, and thought what he thought with the intense 



350 Lucius Manliits Bollwood. [Oct. 

and perfect confidence of Mr. Boltwood. The most marked trait 
of his character was his intcnseness." Another says of him, "he 
had a ruggedness, a strength of mind, a mental grip on things " 
which were admirable. If he did not approve of the conduct of 
others, he was free to. express his disapproval, "but his criticisms 
were always of the act, and not of the individual." He disliked 
shams and pretentions. What he demanded was absolute truth, 
absolute right. One looked upon Mr. Boltwood as a type of the 
New England Puritans and their immediate descendants, who were 
" the strongest characters in the history of mankind " which puts 
him " as high in my estimation as I can express it. * * * he 
stands in my memory as a quaint and strong character, the like of 
which I shall not meet again." 

In politics Mr. Boltwood appears as an independent thinker, ac- 
cepting new ideas and advocating modern reforms, regardless of old 
party ties. In theology the old Puritan creed, instilled in youth, 
lay at the foundation ; but he was so far non-sectarian tliat he saw 
good in all sects, and affiliated in worshiping with Episcopalians when- 
ever in locality it best suited his convenience. In religion he w^as 
intensely conservative ; he set his face like flint against the liberat- 
ing influences of the day ; the advancing wave of free thought broke 
upon him as a ripple upon a rock. To him every tradition of the 
Bible was sacred. Any criticism upon it was sacrilege. Any de- 
ductions of science which cast a shadow on its pages were to him 
as nauojht. But he had the rare virtue of silence with rei^ard to the 
religious belief of others. He is called by one who knew him best 
a very faithful "religious Christian Gentleman." He lived a good 
life, giving of himself and his means, so far as able, for the good 
of others. 

It has been said by another, " he who walks through life with an 
even temper and a gentle patience, patient with himself, patient 
with others, patient with difficulties and crosses, has an every day 
greatness beyond that which is won in battle or chanted in cathe- 
drals." These words fittingly describe his daily living. Very 
prominent among the characteristics of our friend was the happy 
combination of an independent spirit, a clear and contented mind, 
and utter devotion to his home circle. And there he reached the 
climax of a successful career : the companionship of the wife of 
his choice, and five fine, healthy children of promise, in which 
promise there was no disappointment. 

In person Mr. Boltwood was five feet ten inches, strongly built 
and finely proportioned ; his head, with a high forehead, was firmly 
set on broad shoulders ; his hair was light brown, his eyes blue, 
earnest and piercing, and he read without spectacles. In habit he 
was temperate, eschewing all exhilarating drinks ; pure water was his 
constant beverage. Pie found no use for tobacco in any form. He 
continued erect, and bore his years with a suppleness and grace in- 



1905.] Lucius Manlius Boltioood. 351 

duccd largely by habitual out-of-door exercise. For forty years he 
wore a full beard, with which he dispensed in the last year of 
his life. His memory was surprising ; he could recall at will every 
incident of his life, and, what can be said of few at his age, he 
could always recall names and faces at once. 

It was in 1895 that Mr. Boltwood removed with his family to 
Grand Rapids, where his three sons were in practice as lawyers 
under the firm of Boltwood & Boltwood. Here he continued his 
business and favorite studies, spending much time in reading, and 
never forgetting his walk of two or three miles every day. In 
1900, he was made a Corresponding Member of the Old Colony 
Historical Society, and the same year called upon his friends in 
Massachusetts. 

In November, 1904, he made another journey to his native town 
and other places where he had resided with unusual enjoyment. 
During his absence he was taken very ill, but lived one month after 
reaching home, where he entered into rest, February 28, 1905. At 
his request, his children placed him in the family burial-lot in 
Amherst, March 4. This was the first break in the family circle. 
His loss is deeply felt, and he is sincerely mourned by a large cir- 
cle of friends. Mrs. Boltwood and all their children live at Grand 
Rapids. 

He leaves a large historic genealogic library, and an immense 
mass of manuscript on the genealogy of New England families. 
To the very last he constantly added to his large store of matter 
for the continuation of the Genealogy of Hadley Families. To 
that end his note book was constantly in evidence during his last 
visit to Massachusetts. It is to be hoped that this additional matter 
will reach the public in some form. 

Mr. Boltwood married, June 6, 1860, Clarinda Boardman, daugh- 
ter of Hinckley and Elvira Armenius (Wright) Williams, of Goshen, 
Mass., born Aug. 31, 1836. She was indeed a helpmeet peculiarly 
fitted to his temperament and occupations ; with literary taste and 
ability, combined with the faculty of wise management in the do- 
mestic department ; and we may be sure that she did her full share 
in the care and training of their children. In this home, with the 
tender love of a devoted wife and the filial obedience of his children, 
Mr. Boltwood found his delightful haven of rest and happiness. 
Here he reigned ; a gentle autocrat, with cheerfulness, kindness, 
and love ; " a model husband and father." He was fond of good 
stories, and when on his journeyings he picked up the best for 
family use on his return ; as also pictures of the most interesting 
localities he had visited. The devotion of these parents to their 
children knew no bounds ; with but limited means at their disposal, 
no sacrifice was considered too costly in giving them all a liberal 
education. Mr. Boltwood's life with his wife was close and abso- 
lutely confidential. Letters were exchanged every day when sepa-

THE DESCENDANTS OF CAPTAIN RICHARD 
OLMSTEAD, OF FAIRFIELD, CONN.* 

By Frederick Stam Hammond, Esq., of Oneida, N. Y. 

1. Capt. Richard^ Olmstead was born in England, perhaps at 
Fairstead, Co. Essex, in 1G08. His parentage has not been learned, but 
his " cousin " Nicholas^ Olmstead, who is mentioned in his will, was a son 
of James Olmstead, of Cambridge, Mass., and Hartford, Conn., and was 
baptized at Fairstead, Feb. 15, 1612. 

Richard Olmstead came to Fairfield about 1639, and probably settled in 
that part of the town which was incorporated into the town of Norwalk, 
in 1651. Fairfield originally embraced the territory which is now com- 
prised in several towns, and extended so far north as to take in the present 
town of Redding, which was set off from it in 1677. His descendants be- 
came very numerous, and lived in nearly every town in the county. The 
records of many of these towns are very incomplete, and much material 
has been collected relating to this family which could not be used in this 
article on account of missing evidences of the proper connection. 

So far as is known, Capt. Richard had but two children, James and John, 
but with him came one Nehemiah Olmstead, presumed to have been his 
brother, who died leaving an only daughter, Sarah. James Olmstead, of 
Cambridge and Hartford, also had a son named Nehemiah. 

No record of the marriages of Capt. Richard has been found. He had 

lar<ie grrants of land in Fairfield, which then embraced a considerable terri- 
es o ' 

tory, and some of his lands were included in what were known as the 
" Long lots," which were narrow strips of land running from the coast line 
back some six or seven miles. The north line of these lots was in about 
the centre of the present town of Redding, and thus his heirs came into 
possession of lands at Chestnut Hill and Buckingham Ridge. He also had 
large grants in Norwalk after its incorporation, the record of his first grant 
being found on page i. of Vol. 1, Norwalk Land Records. 

The original of his will, dated Sept. 5, 1684, is on file at Fairfield, but 
the seal is so nearly obliterated that no copy of it can be made. It is also 
recorded in Book 111, page 217, Fairfield Probate Records. The follow- 
ing is an abstract : 

I Richard Olmstead, of the towne of Norwake in ye County of ffairlield in ye 
Collony of Connecticut, aged Seventy-six years or tlierabouts. 

Unto my sonn Jolin my present dwelling house, housein^^:, barne, horn lott, 
orchard, to be to him . . . unless my sonn James shall acord to A writing 
underhand make excliange of ye present house and homestead with ye s<^ Johu 
within A year and one day. 

To my Eldest sonn James Olmstead my fruitful! springlott of meddow, to be 
to him and to his heirs, . . . also my cowlott of upland, also tliree acres 
of plowing land at Sacatul<e Plaine, to be added to ye side of what he ther 
alreddy possessed of, moreover one acre of my fruitfull springlott of upland ' 
next my pasture lott. 

To my sonn John Olmstead one acre of land in my fruitfull springlott to be 
added to that which is now his and also ye lott called pine hill lott, also ye 
remainder of Sacatuche lott after James hath received his three acres. 

*This genealogy has been compiled entirely from original records and documents 
in Fairfield County, Conn. No reference has been had to any printed work. The 
compiler has quite a collection of evidences from land records in the towns of Fair- 
field County, and also quite a collection of data relating to later generations of this 
interesting family. 



356 Descendants of Captain Richard Olmstead. [Oct. 

My lott called thehouse lott all the aforesaid parcels of land I doe give and 
bequetli unto my sonn John. 

To my two sons James and John my meddow lott on ye other side of Nor- 
wake liiver, which shall l)e equally divided croswise, . , . and to my 
sonns James and John all my meddow lying in ye great marsh, to each of them 
an equal share as near as it can be divided. . . . Moreover unto my sonns 
James and Jolin my lott called Agratuity lott, lying upon ye hill on ye other

ters Elizabeth Pecke and Lydia Baker to each of them the sura of twenty 
shillings. • 

Unto Samuel Smith ye bedd yt was my last wives, alsoe one pillow and ye 
blew rugg and ye great chest yt was my wives. 

My two sonns James and John to be sole and joynt executors and adminis- 
trators, . . . and my trusted and beloved ffriend Squire John Piatt to be 
overseer. 

No record of his death or of the births of his sons is found at Fairfield. 
Children : 

2. i. James, 2 b. about 1G45-8. 

3. ii. John, b. about 1650. 

2. Lieut. James^ Olmstead {Richard}) was born perhaps in Fair- 

field, Conn., before 1650. At the time of his marriage, and for 
many years prior to 1700, he held the office of Commissioner of 
Deeds at Norwalk. He married in Norwalk, May 1, 1673, Phebe 
Barlow of Norwalk, and died there in May or June, 1731, His 
will, dated Apr. 28, 1731, proved in Fairfield, June 12, 1731, gives 
to wife Phebe "all ye Real Estate which I am this day possessed 
of," which his sons Joseph and John were to have at their mother's 
decease. It adds, " My son Nathan, now deceased, has had his 
full portion of my estate." 

His sons James and Samuel are not mentioned, and they probably 
died young'. 

Children, recorded in Norwalk : 

i. James, 3 b. Aug. 17, 1675. 

ii. Joseph, b. Mar. 10, 1676-7 ; living in 1731 ; probably married and had 
a family. 

4. iii. Nathan, b. Apr. 27, 1678. 
iv. Samuel, b. May 13, 1683. 

5. v. John, b. Aug. 14, 1692. 

3. Lieut. Joitn^ Olmstead (Richard^), perhaps born at Fairfield, 

about 1650, married first, July 17, 1673, Mary, daughter of Thomas 
Benedict of Norwalk ; and married second, Elizabeth, widow of 
Thomas Gregory. No record of his marriages, the death of his 
first wife, or the births of his children, has been found. It is proba- 
ble that his first wife died soon after the birth of his daughter 
Eunice, and that Elizabeth was tlie first child of the second wife. 
He died in Dec, 1704. His will does not appear on record, but an 
inventory of his estate was presented by the widow Elizabeth, Dec. 
22^ 1704, and in this inventory the names of the children appear 
with approximate ages ; but the ages as given are not correct, as for 
example, the age of Mary is stated as about 18 years, while the 



1905.] Descendants of Oaptain RicJiard Olmstead. 357 

records show that she had been married eight years at the time 
the inventory was made. Tiie ages undoubtedly do indicate, liow- 
ever, the order of birth. The record of distrilnition, in Fairfield 
Probate Records, dated Apr. 17, 1705, shows that the widow P^liza- 
beth was formerly the wife of Thomas Greojory. The others shar- 
ing in the estate were Daniel Olmstead, eldest son, Thomas Reed, 
Benjamin Wilson, Anna Olmstead, Jonathan Abbott, Samuel St. 
John, Richard Olmstead, John Olmstead, Elizabeth Olmstead, P]u- 
nice Olmstead, Deborah Olmstead, and Abigail Olmstead. A 
Joseph is mentioned, but whether Joseph St. John or not does not 
fully appear, as the language is rather ambiguous. 
Children by first wife : 

6. i. Mary,=' b. about 1675. 

ii. Jane, b. about 1077; probably m. Benjamin Wilson. 

7. iii. Sarah, b. about 1679. 

iv. Kkbkcca, b. about 1681 : probably m. Sauuiel St. John. 

8. V. Daniel, b. about 1683. 
vi. RiCHAKD, b. about 1685. 

vii. Eunice, b. about 1687; probably m. Joseph St. John. 

Children by second wife : 

9. viii. Elizabeth, b. about 1690. 
ix. Deborah, b. about 1693. 
X. Abigail, b. about 1696. 
xi. Anna, b. about 1698. 

10. xii. John, b. about 1700. 

4. Nathan^ Olmstead {James,"^ Richard^), born in Norwalk, Conn., 
Apr. 27, 1678, married, Dec. 17, 1702, Sarah, daughter of Ralph 
Keeler of Norwalk, as shown in the will of Ralph. 

Nathan died in Norwalk, Jan., 1716/17. The inventory of his 
estate, presented to the Probate Court in Fairfield, Jan. 12, 1716- 
17, by the widow Sarali, names children : Nathan aged 13, Samuel 
aged 10, James aged 8, Mary aged 6, Hannah aged 4, and Lydia 
aged 1 year last May. 

Feb. 2, 1725/6, Samuel and James, sons of Nathan Olmstead, 

late of Norwalk, chose their uncle Moses Comstock as their guardian ; 

and Oct. 14, 1757, they discharged their uncle Moses Comstock of 

* Norwalk " from all the cares and concerns yt he did take of .us " 

(Fairfield Probate Records). 

Sept. 6, 1727, Mary, Hannah, and Lydia, daughters of Nathan 
Olmstead, late of Norwalk, chose their brother Samuel Olmstead 
as their guardian. 

Children : 

i. Nathan,* b. in Norwalk, Dec. 4, 1703; probably m. before 1727. 
Nothing has been learned about his family. In 1727, Oliver Ar- 
nold, a minor, of Norwalk, chose him as his guardian. 

11. ii. Samuel, b. 1706. 

iii. James, b. 1708; living in 1750. In 1748 he was on the bond of 
Hezekiah Deforest, Guardian of the children of David Deforest 
late of Norwalk. In 1750 he was one of tlie committee appointed 
by the Probate Court to make a division of tlic estate of Joseph 
Rockwell, late of Norwalk, among his heirs. Nothing has been 
learned about his family.

8, 169G, and was admitted to the Church at Greenfield Hill, Conn., 
by letter from the First Church of Fairfield, Fob. 22, 1729/30. 
No. 49 in the Cliurch record of deaths is Mindwell, wife of John 
Olmstead, but the date is not given. They probably lived in the 
north part of Fairfield, that part which later became Weston. No 
record of his death appears on the Church records. The baptisms 
of their children are found on Greenfield Church Records. Their 
children lived later in Weston, Redding, and Ridgefield. 

In Fairfield Probate Records it appears that John Olmstead, of 
Fairfield, was chosen as guardian by Benjamin, son of Elijah Crane, 
deceased, in 1739, so his wife may have been of the Crane family.

11. Samuel'* Olmstead {Nathcm,^ James, '^ Richard^) was born in Nor- 

walk. Conn., in 1706. He probably had a family, and lived to old 
age. 

There were no less than five Samuel Olmsteads living in Nor- 
walk at the same time, prior to 1800, known as Samuel, SamueP'\ 
Samuel ^'*, Samuel ^'^'', and Samuel ^"'. Three of these were 
nearly of the same age, and were married within a few years of 
each other. Nothing could be found on Norwalk Town Records 
to definitely fix tiie parentage of any of these.

and had: Samuel, b. Dec. 17, 1774; Sarah, b. July 27, 1776; Han-

18. JOHN^ Stimson {John^ Andrew,'^ Andrew'^), born in Charlestown, 
Jan. 18, 1728-9, married at Charlestown, Jan. 30, 1751-2, Su- 
sannah, daughter of William and Susannah (White) Fosdick, who 
was born in Charlestown, Oct. 8, 1733, died at Charlestown, Mar. 
13, 1776, and was buried at Medford, Mar. 17, 1776, where his 
gravestone is still to be seen in the Medford Cemetery. She mar- 
ried second, about 1778, Joseph Newell of Charlestown, who may 
have been son of Joseph and Ann (Phillips) Newell, born in 
Charlestown, June 7, 1716. He died previous to 1798; and she 
died in Boston, Feb. 28, 1817, and was buried in the Bradshaw 
tomb, Boston Common. 

He resided in Charlestown, and followed the family trade of 
baker. He inherited two-fifths of the homestead when his father's 
estate was divided, and purchased that portion set ofif to his sister 
Elizabeth Newell. His house was situated at what is now the 



368 Sthnpsoii Family of Oharlestown. [Oct. 

corner of Main and JNIeade Streets, with the bake-house in the rear. 
The hind extended from Main Street up the hill to the present 
Bunker Hill Street, or, as it was called in early times, " the road 
over Bunker Hill." There is a tradition in the family that he 
furnished supplies (probably bread) for the American army during 
the Revolution, and that his death was caused by camp fever. No 
records have as yet been found which would prove this. He made 
a claim for the destruction of his buildings at the burning of the 
town by the British in 1775, amounting to £334. 8. 0., and was 
taxed in Charlestown from 175G to 1773, but why the tax was 
omitted for the remaining years is not known. His wife renewed 
the Covenant, Jan. 7, 1753, just previous to the baptism of her first 
child. 

He died intestate, and administration on his estate was granted 
to his widow, Sept. 20, 1776. Henry Sweetser was appointed 
guardian of all the children who were minors. The homestead was 
purchased by the son William, who paid the other heirs for their 
interest.

from Watertown, by order of General Washington, to reinforce the 
Army in taking possession of Dorchester Heights, Mar., 1776 (Mass. 
Rev. Records, vol. 23, p. 30), and appears to have signed a receipt 
for Bounty, paid him by .Jonathan Brown, town treasurer for the 
town of Watertown, dated Watertown, July 17, 1776 (Mass. Rev. 
Records, vol. 53, p. 187).

that date, as Elizabeth Dix, widow, of Nottingham West, N. li., with 
her sisters Ruth Bradshaw and Nancy Dicks, she sold her interest 
in her mother's right of dower. Her sister, Mrs. Bradshaw, gave 
her a legacy in her will in 1842, at which time she was Betsey

members of the family, that he had three wives, but the records of 
the last two marriages have not been found. A Rebecca Sthnpson,

first wife.

. at which time he was styled " baker, of Boston." For several years 
he kept a stable in Lendell's Lane, now Exchange Place.

386 Descendants of Thomas Jones. [Oct. 

THOMAS JONES OF GUILFORD, COiNN., AND HIS 
DESCENDANTS. 

Compiled by Hon. Ralph D. Smyth, and communicated by Dr. Bernard C. Steixer. 

1. Thomas^ Jones was one of tlie pioneer settlers of Guilford, and 
came with Mr. Whitfield. His name is the sixth on the plantation Cove- 
nant signed June 1, 1639, on the passage of Mr. Whitfield's company to 
Guilford. He was evidently a young man, and probably was a relation 
of William Jones of New Haven. He appears to have been the first 
Marshal at Guilford, and to have held that office without a dissenting vote. 
Perhaps he was not married when he came to Guilford, though this is not 
certain. He married a Mrs. Mary Carter, probably a widow, with a 
daughter Mary Carter who subsequently married Samuel Ward of Bran- 
ford, Jan. 1, IGo8. 

He was a witness in the first court, Aug. 14, 1645, and was chosen or 
rather reappointed Marshal at a court held Oct. 7, 1646. To this office 
he was annually rechosen until June 17, 1650, when George Bartlett was 
chosen " to succeed in his room in that office when he removes," Thomas 
Jones to retain office until then. On June 9th, 1651, " George Bartlett 
was chosen to succeed brother Jones in the Marshal's place, when Provi- 
dence shall remove him." Before June 10th, 1652, he had removed, and 
John Fowler was chosen Marshal. He left his property and family in 
Guilford, and may have intended to return. His wife died Sept. 16, 1650, 
and probably soon afterward his place was sold and transferred to John 
Meigs. The deed was given many years later, however, on Mar. 4, 1667-8, 
by Lieut. William Chittenden, *' the said Thomas Jones's Agent." Thomas 
Jones had died many years before that date. Mr. Davenport, in a letter 
to Gov. John Winthrop, Jr., dated about Mar. 10, 1655, wrote as follows: 
*' Mr. Disborough and Goodman Jones died lately of the small pox in 
England or Scotland." 

Thomas Jones evidently came to Guilford for a more free exercise of 
his religious and perhaps political opinions, and returned to England when 
his friends came in power. AVhen Mr. Whitfield tendered his reasons to 
the Church of Guilford, Feb. 20, 1649-50, for his removal, and enquiry 
was made of every man concerning his particular ability in paying to the 
ministers for the present, and in probability to continue according to ordi- 
nary providence, " Thomas Jones professed his willingness and hoped to 
be able to continue his present payments." 

His home lot lay next that of John Bishop, on the east side of the 
Green, and he held in addition 6 acres of upland and swamp near by, 4i 
acres of upland in the East Creek Quarter, and bh acres of marsh land 
there. In the Neck he held 91 acres of upland, and also owned 8 acres 
of marsh at " Salt-holes." 

On June 12, 1656, Mary Carter demanded £40 sterling from Thomas 
Jones's estate, which the court ordered to be paid her. This sum con- 
sumed all the inventory but £1.3.8., which was ordered to be kept for the 
children. 

Children : 

2. i. Samuel, 2 b. in Guilford; d. Nov. 1704. 

ii. Nathaniel, d. siiiirlc, in Branford, May, 1GG8, leaving an estate of 
£52.0.0., of which £45.1o.O was due him as a portion of his fath- 
er's will in Enii:laud.

Queries. 

Wright. — Wanted, the ancestry of Asa Wright, architect, who drew plans 
and superintended the erection of the buildings of Dartmouth College. Pie 
was a personal friend of the first president of the college. Dr. Wheelock. He 
had a son, Dr. Asahel, born 1767. R. P. Wright. 

47 Granite St., Cambridge, Mass. 



Franklin. — Ancestry or place of birth wanted of James Franklin, born about 
1750, who was living in eastern New York before 1780, where his children were 
born, among whom were Asa, Henry, and Andres. Asa was born in 1780, and 
married, in Orange Co., N. Y., Koxana Chapman; Andres married Dorothy 
Pratt of Oxford, Mass., and lived in early life in Otsego Co., N. Y. James 
Franklin, the father, always claimed to be a near relative of Dr. Benjamin 
Franklin, which claim was affirmed by many who had known him in his early 
years. (Rev.) H. F. Fairbanks.

Replies. 

Sampson. — ^Regarding the statement of Ruth Sampson's parentage, quoted in 
the Register, ante, page 221, as appearing in Marshfield Town Records, Mr. 
Edward H. Whorf sends me the following true copies of the records : 

Marshfield Records. Original, vol. ii, p. 147: "John ffuUinton of Marsh- 
field & Ruth Samson of Duxbury were married the 13'^ day of October 1720" 

Marshfield Records. Hatch Copy, 1879. Alphabetically arranged. Mar- 
riages, p. 32 : " Fullin(g)ton John Marshfield Ruth Sampson Duxbury Oct. 13- 
1720 Rev. James Gardner II. p. 147." After the words " Ruth Sampson" is a 
caret and this inserted in pencil, at some time after 1879, when the copy was 
made: " dau of Caleb Sampson and Mercy Standish." 

Concerning the further statement that Ruth Sampson was the mother of all 
the children of John FuUertou, the following would seem to show it er- 
roneous : 

Boston Evening Post, of April 20, 1767 (quoted in Briggs's " History of Ship- 
building on North River, Plymouth County, Massachusetts," page 353) : "About 
a month since was born at Gen. Winslow's farm, a daughter of John FuUerton, 
whose age is 73 years, his wife's 47, the child being his seventeenth," etc.

Genealogies in PiiErAUATioN. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families

all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other oflJces, 
graduation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and 
dates of birth, marriage, residence, and death. When there are more than one 
Christian name, they should all be given in full if possible. No initials should 
be used when the full name is known.

materials for a family history of the descendants of George Bowers, of Scitu- 
ate, Mass., in 1637, and later of Plymouth and Cambridge. Many interesting 
facts about the earlier generations have been gathered, but to make the record 
complete, the co-operation of those now living is necessary.

formation concerning the American ancestry and descendants of Josiah Hart 
of Wallingford, Conn, (son of Nathaniel and Martha (Lee) Hart), and his wife

compiling a genealogy of the descendants of Richard Spelman, born in Dan- 
bury, CO. Essex, England, who came to America about 1700 and settled in Mid- 
dletown. Conn. She requests that all descendants, both in the male and female 
lines, who have not already done so, will communicate with her at once, making 
all data as complete as possible. Pedigree blanks will be sent upon request. 

Worthington. — A history of the descendants of Capt. John Worthington of 
the Severn River, Maryland, is being compiled by one of his descendants. 
This embraces a mention of nearly every other of the old families of that state.

ton are requested to send what information they have at once to Mrs. Laura A. 
Madden, Hotel Severance, Broadway and 94th St., New York City.

ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT, 



"Fellow Associates of the New-England 

Historic Genealogical Society, and Friends : 

At the close of an eventful year and at the beginning of another 
which promises to be as eventful, I extend to you my warmest 
greetings. The years are sheaves in the great garner house which 
we call history, and each holds within it the experiences of the 
world during the period of its growth ; grain ripe and full, co- 
mingled with tares and much refuse ; yet its exact worth we cannot 
estimate, nor can we tell exactly how it compares in value with 
other years ; yet we have a faith, more or less distinct, that, upon 
the whole, it ranks well. The year that has passed has been one 
of momentous events in the history of the race. The great war in 
the East, so terribly destructive of human life; the social and labor 
agitations which have threatened material progress ; the earnest 
missionary activities in every clime to educate and uplift men, never 
so persistent as now ; all these must tend to distinguish the year 
past from its fellows. 

Amid all these great events which have interested and affected us 
so much, each individual has been busy with his own well being ; 
his own conservation and development ; and with larger associated 
effort which he has deemed for the benefit of men. These associ- 
ated efforts which are the most useful instrumentalities which can 
be employed, have been worthy of all the time and labor which we 
have bestowed upon them, and all that we can bestow upon them ; 
indeed, they distinguish this age above all other ages. 



X N. R HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

As I look over the work of this Society, and recall to mind the 
many occasions upon which we have assembled ; the pleasant asso- 
ciations which we have enjoyed ; and the enterprises which we have 
fostered and promoted, I feel that we may not be ashamed to place 
this year of accomplishment beside that of any in the past. We 
have prospered in all things and have made encouraging progress 
along those lines of work peculiar to this Society. Our finances 
have been well and conservatively managed, and we have today an 
invested fund of $203,719.82, including real estate producing in- 
come, and the Society's building valued at $65,486.90. The only 
bequest received during the year is from the AVilliara C. Todd estate, 
amounting to $10,000, of which the income only can be used for 
books. While this is a considerable sum, it is insufficient to carry 
on much useful work which we would be glad to undertake. Of 
the wants of the Society, you all know. They have been ably set 
forth by the Council, and it is hoped will meet the attention of some 
who are specially interested in the work in which we are engaged. 

Our Publication Committee reports the completion of the initial 
volume of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills, and it is now- 
ready for delivery. This volume, to which Mr. J. Henry Lea has 
devoted so much valuable talent, contains over six hundred pages 
of concise and exhaustive abstracts of all wills proved in the Pre- 
rogative Court in 1620, to the number of 1366. This volume is 
the first of a series which will be continued, if the work receives the 
support to which it is entitled. It should be known that these ab- 
stracts supplement the work of the British Record Society, whose 
work, beginning with 1383, is to be continued to the year 1620. 
It is to be hoped that this Society may be able to carry on the work 
until it eventually completes the 17th century. The volume is 
very carefully and thoroughly indexed, and contains about 40,000 
references to persons, and 10,000 to places. 

The very important work of publishing the Vital Records has 
progressed without hindrance. The records of New Braintree, 
Washington, Great Barrington, Gill, Waltham, Arlington, Chil- 
mark and Bellingham, have been printed, and those of Newton, 
Medway and Palmer will soon be in the press ; while those of 
Edgartown, Norton, Sturbridge, Dracut, HoUiston, Middlefield, 



ADDRESS OP THE PRESIDENT. XI 

Foxborough, Weymouth, Scituate, Heath, Brookllne, Tisbury, 
West Stockbridge, Granville, Hingham, Hopkinton, Billerica, 
Medford, Dover, Tovvnsend and Carver are in preparation. If 
other New England States would follow the example of Massachu- 
setts, we should soon have a collection of material invaluable to the 
genealogist. 

Volume 6 of Memorial Biographies, prepared by Rev. Dr. Adams, 
our Historian, is now in press, and will soon be ready for distribu- 
tion. The Register has been regularly published, and maintains 
the high character which has distinguished it in past years. I think 
we can justly claim that it stands unexcelled among publications of 
its kind. 

The Report of the Library Committee is especially worthy of 
careful attention. The Library has been greatly enriched during 
the year by the addition of English parish registers, obtained 
through London booksellers, and from the sale of the Robinson 
Library, so that now in works of this class our collection is proba- 
bly the most complete of any in this country. Besides these works, 
about three hundred and fifty family genealogies have been added 
to the library. Attention is called to the gift of Dr. Arthur H. 
Nichols, consisting of two colored maps of the Forts at Canso and 
Louisbourg, made in 1745, the former believed to be unique. 

Another good work of the Committee has been the fitting up of 
the room on the orround floor of this buildino^ for the use of the 
Council and the various committees of the Society. Such a room, 
where meetings can be held free from interruption, has long been 
needed, and the Committee has displayed excellent judgment and 
taste in the performance of the task assigned it. The Committee 
has expended all the money appropriated by the Council for the 
purchase of books, as well as considerable contributions made for 
this purpose by Miss Helen Frances Kimball, Mr. Henry W. Cun- 
ningham and Mr. William Tracy Eustis. 

That the library is constantly growing in usefulness is evidenced 
by the increasing number of those who avail themselves of its bene- 
fits. Never has it been so efficiently managed as now, and visitors, 
by the expert assistance of those employed in its care, need never 
go away dissatisfied for want of helpful attention. 



Xll N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

By the Report of the Committee on Papers and Essays, you will 
see that nine papers have been read to the Society by their authors, 
and in most cases copies have been phiced in our arcliives. Those 
who have listened to these papers can testify to their high literary 
character, as well as their value as historical contributions. 

The Chairman of the Committee to assist the Historian reports 
that he has written, for Volume 6 of Memorial Biographies, sketches 
of Edward Everett and George Peabody, and has aided in compiling 
and condensing sketches for a number of other deceased members. 
A sketch of Hon. Henry B. Metcalf is being prepared for the 
Proceedings by Rev. Anson Titus. I take occasion to repeat 
my request of last year, that members aid the chairman in his efforts 
to discover facts respecting deceased members of whom the Society 
possesses no record. 

The Committee on Consolidated Index reports the completion of 
the verification of the names and places in the first fifty volumes of 
the Register, begun by the late Mr. John T. Hassam. The veri- 
fications of references and the grouping of variations of names has 
been carried about half way through the alphabet. The Index 
when completed will contain from two thousand to twenty-five 
hundred pages. In response to a prospectus sent out some time 
ago by the Committee, it appears that about two hundred and fifty 
subscribers are willing to pay five dollars per part, which will assure 
the publication of the work. The Committee recommends that the 
publication be begun at once, and that no more than the cost be 
charged to subscribers ; that the price be the same to all, and that 
not more than fifty copies in excess of those subscribed for be 
printed. 

The Epitaph Committee makes a report which I trust members 
will carefully read. The interest in collecting inscriptions has con- 
tinued to increase, and we have completed and have in process of 
completion a large number of valuable manuscript volumes. Inter- 
esting additions to these have been made from Braintree, Spring- 
field, Ashby and Gill, Mass., Waitsfield, Vt., and liamden. Conn. 
A number of valuable manuscripts have also been obtained from the 
estate of the late Bradford Kingman, besides a large collection 
from Nova Scotia. The Chairman of the Committee remarks that 
" The purpose of the Committee is to emphasize the truth that old 



ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT. XIU 

grave stones are not merely a source of funny epitaphs, but that they 
contain facts of great value to historians, genealogists, conveyancers 
and owners of real estate, and, therefore, these facts must be pre- 
served and placed where they may be readily accessible." Especial 
attention is called to methods of copying inscriptions, which will 
prove useful to those interested in the work of collection, and the 
volume of Cohasset inscriptions is cited as an example worthy of 
imitation. It is to be expected that the work of this Committee, 
which has been so efficiently conducted, will eventually result in a 
collection of material invaluable to the Society. 

The Committee on Collection of Records, which was appointed 
last year, reports that it has secured the Dover, N. H., marriages, 
four thousand five hundred in all, from 1623 to 1823, copied from 
the original volume now in the possession of Elisha Rhodes Brown 
of Dover ; the Parish Records of Andover, England, and Blan- 
chard Genealogy, presented by Mrs. George Dana Boardman Blan- 
chard of Maiden, Mass., five volumes in all; from Matt Bushnell 
Jones, LL.B., Waitsfield, Vermont, Cemetery Inscriptions, and a 
Book of Records of births, deaths and marriages, of the same town. 
Besides these, the Committee has received from Mrs. Mary C, 
Olmsted, Hewett Family genealogical papers ; Ipswich Clippings 
with index, by William Tracy Eustis, Esq. ; from Charles H. Al- 
den, M.D., a collection of short biographies of the descendants of 
John Alden ; from Edward Wharf, Braintree Cemetery inscriptions 
and Diary of Prince Howes ; also, from the town of Great Barring- 
ton, a manuscript copy of the vital records of that town. 

This Committee has made a creditable beginning, and there is 
no doubt that the work which it performs in the future will be of 
great benefit to the Society. 

I recur to a subject to which I once before called your attention, 
namely, the present custom among publishers of issuing books of 
permanent value, printed upon cheap paper which will survive but 
a few years. This custom, all too prevalent, demands the protest 
of historical societies especially, and authors should insist upon 
having works upon which they have bestowed much valuable labor, 
printed upon durable paper. Our own Society I think may well 
use its influence in this direction. 



XIV N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

I have briefly reviewed the work of the year, in order to interest 
you in the reports of the various Committees. The work of the old 
year has closed, and we are entering upon a new one which demands 
our best efforts to make it a year of success. Let us with mutual 
good will earnestly endeavor to make it the most successful year 
which the Society has. experienced. 



PROCEEDINGS. 



The Annual Meeting of the New-England Historic Gene- 
alogical Society was held in Marshall P. Wilder hall of the 
Society's house, 'No. 18 Somerset street, Boston, on the afternoon of

REPORT OF THE COUNCIL. 



Prepared bj William Theophilus Rogers Marvin, A.M. 

As the purpose of the Annual Report of the Council is to furnish 
the Society with a general view of what has been attempted or ac- 
complished for its advancement during the year, we shall endeavor 
as briefly as possible to outline the plans which have been considered 
to increase its usefulness, to enlarge the facilities which it aims to 
offer to those who are interested in the special lines of study for 
which it was founded, and to indicate what seems to us some of its 
most pressing needs. 

The work of the Society naturally divides itself into two distinct 
departments : 

(I.) The collection of a working Library, which shall contain 
everything available relating to the local history of New England 
from its first settlement ; the family histories of the founders of its 
various colonies and the o^enealoo^ies of their descendants now scat- 
tered throughout our land, carrying with them wherever they have 
gone the traditions and memories of their early homes, and spread- 
ing throughout the nation the silent yet powerful influences of those 
traits of character which marked the first settlers of Massachusetts 
and her sister States ; and 

(II.) The endeavor to enlist the sympathy and cordial co-opera- 
tion of State authorities, of kindred societies, and of others outside 
of our immediate membership, in aid of our work ; this we hope to 
accomplish by judiciously planned and carefully organized efforts to 
make accessible to students of New England history and the gene- 
alogies of its founders, the immense amount of unpublished mate- 
rial contained in the early records of our towns, our probate courts, 
and our ancient churches ; on the stones of our too often neglected 
church-yards and town cemeteries ; in the lists of births and bap- 
tisms, marriages and deaths, contained in Family Bibles, diaries, old 
newspapers, and various other sources of a similar nature, which 
have been brought to your attention through the appointment, some- 
thing more than a year ago, of a special committee — the Committee 
on Records — who now have this branch of our work in charge. 

1. The Library. During the past year the Library has shown a 
satisfactory growth on its special lines. As the editions of Eng- 



REPORT OP THE COUNCIL. XIX 

lisli Parish Registers are almost invariably very limited, we consider 
ourselves fortunate in the acquisitions we have been able to make, 
and the Society may congratulate itself that in this department our 
Library is now, as we have reason to believe, more complete than 
any other in the country. Every effort should be made to obtain 
everything published of this class of books, which are of special 
value to those who are seeking information that may enable them to 
trace their ancestral lines on the other side of the ocean. There is 
an increasing interest in England in the work of the various societies 
which are printing genealogical material, especially the Parish Reg- 
ister Societies, and the Index Society, and others that are publish- 
ing abstracts of wills and indexes of probate records. We can lend 
a little aid to this laudable work by subscriptions, inasmuch as the 
receipts of many of these institutions are applied to further research 
in the same direction. It is believed that more printed data of in- 
terest to Americans would result from such encouragement than in 
almost any other manner at present open to this Society. As yet 
but few American libraries have appreciated the value of English 
genealogical books. 

The volumes of Vital Records of Massachusetts towns, published 
and to be published by the Society, will at no distant day render 
this department, which has already proved its value, an authorita- 
tive source of information that will greatly lighten the labors of fu- 
ture genealogists. 

The Society is fortunate in having been able to secure and hold 
the services of its Library staff, especially the two assistants. Miss 
Stickney and Miss Rayne, who wait upon readers. Their cour- 
teous attention to all deserves commendation. Progress has been 
made on the Card Catalogue during the year, and about 9000 cards 
have been added. Had we means at our command, the entire time 
of an assistant to the cataloguer could be profitably employed in has- 
tening the completion of this work. 

The slielving is now crowded to very nearly its full capacity. 
Time and again, in the last two or three years, book-cases have been 
added on the floor of the main reference room, until now there is 
scarcely space to consult the shelves with care, and not sufficient 
room to pass in the aisles without inconvenience to the readers. 
The cases in the room where we hold our meetinors, containinof some 
of our duplicates and other volumes less frequently called for, have 
long been filled. Further encroachment on the space remaining 
for the work of the assistants and the general purposes of the Soci- 
ety is out of the question, and it is becoming a serious problem how 
to arrange the accessions which may be reasonably expected during 
the coming year, so that they may be readily accessible. More 
room will be imperatively needed within a very short time. The 



XX N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

tables are often thronged with visitors from all over the United 
States, and occasional students from abroad. 

While we are glad to open our treasures freely to all comers, 
the constant use of our Library presents some difficult questions 
which must soon receive most thoughtful consideration. Strain 
and wear of our books are of course inevitable. Partly because of 
the poor quality of paper too often used i^n recent years for printing 
books so frequently consulted as ours, and partly because of almost 
ceaseless, and sometimes we regret to say careless handling by read- 
ers, the bill for repairs and rebinding is nearly five times what it 
was in 1893, and seems to be doubling about every five years. 
Many of our books it would now be almost impossible to replace. 
Careful supervision to see that rebinding is not postponed too long, 
if the volumes are to be kept in proper condition, is more and more 
required, and the necessity for establishing a substantial fund for 
rebinding and the purchase of duplicates is daily becoming more 
urgent. No feasible method of fixing responsibility on the general 
reader has yet been discovered, and a restriction upon the use of quite 
a large proportion of our books is an alternative which we may be 
forced to consider, however reluctantly ; but this seems to be the 
only mode of relief, unless some such fund can be provided. 

The Society holds the following funds, the income of which is 
restricted by their donors to the purchase of books : 

The Anne E. Sever Fund .... $5,000 

The Marv W. Russell Fund .... 3,000 

The Robert C. Billings Fund .... 1,000 

The William C. Todd Fund .... 1,000 

This has just been increased to $11,000. 

The Kidder Fund, about .... 350 

By vote of the Council the income from these funds has been in- 
creased temporarily by an appropriation of a portion of the income 
from the George P. Smith Fund, and other funds, so that not far 
from $1450 has been available for additions to the Library during 
the year, from our investments, and this amount has been gener- 
ously supplemented by other donations from officers of the Society. 

In view of the constant growth of the Library, the enlargement 
of our quarters by the erection of a fire-proof structure on the land 
in the rear, the purchase of which was reported at our last annual 
meeting, has received some consideration. When the day for our 
new building comes, there will be ample room for a commodious 
and well-lighted edifice, thoroughly adapted to our work. In the 
mean time there is cause for anxiety from the fact that our valuable 
collections are constantly exposed to destruction by fire. This is 
reduced, so far as possible, by the utmost vigilance, and sugges- 
tions made by insurance experts have been acted on. But in a 



REPORT OP THE COUNCIL. XXi 

patched-up building, a part of which is nearly a century old, and 
all of which has within and about it an abundance of inflammable 
material, the danger is always great. It would seem that a fire- 
proof addition, such as has been suggested, could be erected for a 
comparatively moderate sum, on a part of the land in the rear. This 
would ofive us sufficient room to accommodate our books and manu- 
scripts ; it might contain convenient quarters for the editor of the 
Register, for indexing and other clerical work, and the officers and 
committee meetings, free from interruption, and give us the entire 
space of the room where we hold our meetings unencumbered. The 
plans should be drawn with a view to its becoming a part of the 
new building, when that shall no longer be a castle in the air. For 
this donations will be welcomed. For the present, however, it 
must wait the pleasure of some liberal benefactor, since the current 
expenses necessary to carry on the work of the Society with proper 
efficiency absorb the entire income of our unrestricted funds, and no 
portion of the principal can as yet be diverted into unproductive 
property. 

Mr. Edmund D. Barbour, who was largely instrumental in ac- 
quiring the adjoining property, has shown his continued interest in 
the plans for enlargement. In support of the suggestions which 
he made in the last Annual Report of the Council, he has caused 
two draughts to be prepared showing how this land can be utilized. 
The Society is indebted to Mr. J. Gardner Bartlett for studies for 
two buildings, one to cost about $75,000, and the other about twice 
as much. These have been placed in the Society's hall, for in- 
spection, and simiar studies from other architects would be wel- 
comed. 

2. We pass to the second department of the Society's work, refer- 
red to at the beginning of this Report. We venture to say that at 
the present time this is quite as important as the first. The Library 
has a recognized value. That its needs and usefulness are appre- 
ciated is proved by the gifts of books it is receiving, and by the 
liberality of those who have contributed to its endowment. The 
increase of its funds for the purchase of books, and even for the 
erection of a new building, may be hopefully anticipated. The 
State has encouraged us by its aid in publishing the Vital Records 
of our towns. The entire expense of publication of Waters' Glean- 
ings has been met by the sales, and the Society has a fair supply of 
copies on hand, the sale of which will yield some profit. The 
growth of local historical societies may be claimed as largely due 
to the influence of this Society. But the importance of gathering 
the material to which our Record Committee is giving attention, 
cannot be too strongly emphasized. A wider popular interest in 
this work must be aroused, and funds must be provided for use of 



XXll N, E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

this committee. The possibilities within our reach were outlined 
in the last report of" the Council, and an expenditure of $1500 was 
suggested. Only a very small part of this however has been used 
during the year. Some valuable documents are falling into 
decay, and if the work is ever to be done, it must be speedily be- 
gun. The reports of the Committee on Epitaphs have shown how 
indifference and neglect have permitted many precious records con- 
tained in our older cemeteries to be utterly destroyed. Members 
of the Patriotic Societies are often indebted to our archives for the 
proofs which enable them to establish their claims. If some of 
them would reciprocate the aid they have here received, by giving 
a few hours' work to copying inscriptions — like that recently accom- 
plished by the D. A. R. of Cohasset, in the six graveyards of that 
town and presented to us — it would be an excellent return, which 
would be gratefully appreciated. 

The work which has been done in former years through the Com- 
mittee on English Research has been frequently mentioned in these 
reports. In December, 1904, there was issued, under its supervision, 
a new volume of over 600 pages containing abstracts of wills proved 
in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in 1620, and recorded in 
" Register Soame." Particulars are given in the report of that Com- 
mittee, and plans for the continuance of the work proposed. The 
Committee on Publications, on Consolidated Index, and that to 
assist the Historian have made satisfactory progress in their several 
departments, as will more fully appear in their reports which are 
herewith submitted. 

In view jof what has been accomplished, as shown by these re- 
ports, it must be evident to all, whether members or not, that the 
work in which the Society is engaged is one of peculiar value. 
That there is nothing selfish or restrictive in its policy is clearly 
proved by the freedom with which its treasures are opened to the 
public. May we not hope that the statement of our needs, as re- 
cently announced in the Register [repeated at the end of this pub- 
lication], will meet with a corresponding liberal response by gifts to 
our Library, by increasing our funds, and by a cordial co-operation 
with its ofl^cers and its various committees. 

In conclusion, the retiring members of the Council are happy to 
congratulate the Society on the spirit which has marked its pro- 
ceedings under our President. Rarely has he been absent from any 
meetino;s, cominof from Portland to attend them. Throuo^hout his 
administration the greatest harmony has prevailed in the Council 
and the Society. Under such conditions we may look forward with 
full assurance of hope for future continued prosperity.

The invested funds of the Society, including income-producing 
real estate, now amount to $148,214.18, and the Society's House 
on Somerset Street is now valued at $65,486.90. 

This year $24,399.96 was paid for the real estate purchased, 
and, in order to obtain money to meet this outlay and the deficit in 
the unrestricted net income of the Society, securities, valued at 
$26,433.58 have been sold. In addition to the cash paid for this 
property, mortgages, amounting to $28,000.00, are still outstanding. 

By authority of the Council the following securities have been 
sold : 22 shares Old Colony R. R. Co. ; $5,000.00 Massachusetts 
bonds; $10,000.00 Union Pacific R. R. bonds; $2,000.00 New

$1,000.00 Kansas & Fort Scott bonds. 

Tlie only le^^acy received this year has been one of $10,000.00 
from the Todd estate, of which the income only may be used for 
the purchase of books. 



The Report of the Committee on the Library, by George Brown 
Knapp, A.M., Chairman: 

During the past year the Society has been particularly fortunate 
in opportunities to add to its collection of English Parish registers, 
especially at the sale of the Robinson library by auction in this city 
last spring, and later through London booksellers j^ so that now our 
collection of works of this class, so useful to the genealogical student, 
is probably the most complete of any in this country. 

Special efforts have been made to obtain family genealogies, and 
about 2^0 have been secured. 

A very interesting and valuable gift was received from Dr. Arthur 
H. Nichols of Boston, consisting of two colored maps of Forts Canso 
and Louisburg, made by George Foiling in 1745. The plan of 
Fort Canso is believed to be unique, and that of Louisburg gives 
details not found on other maps. Polling's commission as "First 
Lieutenant of the Train of Artillery * * under the Command of 
Richard Gridley, Esq.," bearing date 1756 and signed by Governor 
Shirley, was also given. All of these are framed and hanging in 
the Library. 

Perhaps the most important act of the Committee during the 
year was the fitting up of the room now known as the Council 
Chamber. The need of a place where the Council and the various 
committees could have greater privacy in their meetings, and cause 
less interruption of the duties of the employees of the Society, has 
long been but too apparent. Accordingly, application was made 
to the Council for permission to fit up room No. 1 for that purpose. 
A large portion of the contents of this room consisted of New Eng- 
land town reports, which were very rarely consulted. These were 
catalogued and packed in boxes and stored in the old stable at the 
rear of the Society's lot, where access can be had to them if neces- 
sary. As the State Library has nearly complete files of the town 
publications, however, they can readily be found there. For the 
moderate sum of one hundred and ten dollars this lumber room has 
been transformed into an attractive and convenient room fitted up 
with excellent taste, where meetings can be held in quiet, and free 
from interruption. Part of the shelving taken from this room was 
used in room No. 2, to provide shelves for the Boston Transcript, 
which has been bound to date, making our file of that valuable 
paper nearly complete. 



REPORTS OP COMxMITTEES. XXV 

All the money appropriated by the Council for the purchase of 
books has been expended, together with considerable sums kindly 
given for that purpose by Miss Helen Frances Kimball, and Messrs. 
W. Tracy Eustis and Henry W. Cunningham. 

That the library is being appreciated more and more, the increas- 
ing number of those who avail themselves of its wealth of informa- 
tion from year to year abundantly proves ; and it is safe to say that 
the service was never more efficient than at the present time. The 
librarian's assistants. Misses Stickney, Rayne and Chapman, with 
their thorough knowledge of the resources of the library, are of 
much assistance to visitors for the ])urpose of genealogical research. 

The great value of our collection of books and manuscripts ren- 
ders it imperative that every possible precaution be taken to protect 
it against damage or loss by fire. A portion of our building is al- 
ready provided with electric lighting, and your Committee would 
suggest the desirability of equipping the remaining portion with it, 
as it can be done at comparatively s^nall expense. Besides dimin- 
ishing the risk, it would be of no small advantage in the safe where 
the manuscripts are kept, the use of gas having a tendency to hasten 
their destruction. 



The Report of the Committee on Publications, by Caleb Benjamin 
Tillinghast, A.M., Chairman: 
The work of the Committee on Publications during the calendar 
year 1904 may be summarized as follows : 

(1) The Register has been published regularly, as usual, 
includino; the Proceedino;8 in the volume, accordinoc to the custom 
of later years. 

(2) The volume of Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills, Reg- 
ister Soame^ 1620, has been printed, and will be ready for delivery 
by the first day of January. 

(3) Volume 6 of the Memorial Biographies has been prepared 
by Rev. Dr. Adams, the Historian, and is now in the hands of the 
printer. 

(4) The publication of the Vital Records has gone forward in a 
satisfactory manner. The records of the following towns have been 
printed and issued by the Society during the year : New Braintree, 
Washington, Great Barrington, Gill, Waltham, Arlington, Chil- 
mark, and Bellingham. Vital records of these towns are expected 
to be in the hands of the printer very soon : Newton, Med way and 
Palmer. Vital records of the followinof towns are in various stao^es 
of preparation : Edgartown, Norton, Sturbridge, Dracut, Holliston, 
Middlefield, Foxborough, Weymouth, Scituate, Heath, Brookline» 
Tisbury, W. Stockbridge, Granville, Hingham, Hopkinton, Bille- 
rica, Medford, Dover, and Townsend. 



XXVI N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

The Report of the Committee on Papers and Essays, by Albert 
Alonzo Folsom, Esq., Chairman: 

The Committee upon Papers and Essays herewith submit their 
annual report. During the year 1904, your Committee have se- 
cured the presentation of nine papers, by their authors, before the 
several stated meetings of the Society, as follows : 

January 6, Rev. Samuel Dike, LL.D., of Auburndale — "Capt. 
Anthony Dike." 

February 3. Anson Marshall Lyman, A.B., of Brookline — 
"The Monroe Doctrine." 

March 3. Charles G. Chick, Esq., President Hyde Park His- 
torical Society — "Writs of Assistance, the spark that kindled the 
American Revolution." 

Aiiril 6. Capt. R. G. F. Candage, of Brookline — " Blue Hill 
(Me.) Academy." 

October 5. Capt. R. G. E. Candage, of Brookline — "Rev. 
Jonathan Fisher, Pastor of Blue Hill (Me.) Congregational Church, 
1796-1837." 

November 2. Arthur Gilman, A.M., of Cambridge — "The 
Seige of Louisburg." 

December 7. Albert Matthews, A.B. , of Boston — " The Nam- 
ing of Hull, Massachusetts." 

Copies of these valuable papers, covering a large amount of re- 
search and involving literary capacity of high character, have been 
deposited in the archives of the Society, with few exceptions. 



The Report of the Committee to Assist the Historian, by Wil- 
liam Richard Cutter, A.M., Chairman : 

The Historian has been so successful in finding personal friends 
to prepare sketches for the Proceedings that he has asked less assis- 
tance than usual from the Committee. 

The chairman has written, for Volume 6 of Memorial Biogra- 
phies, sketches of Edward Everett and George Peabody, and has 
done much work (compiling or condensing) on sketches of Hon. 
Ebenezer Lane, Hon. Charles A. Dewey, Rev. Albert Barnes, and 
John Alfred Poor. On the sketches for the Proceedings, he has 
written sketches of Charles Louis Flint and Jacob Warren Man- 
ning. 

Rev. Anson Titus is writing a sketch of Hon. Henry B. Metcalf 
for the Proceedings. 



REPORTS OP COMMITTEES. XXVll 

The Report of the Committee on English Research, by Albert 
Matthews, A.B., Chairman : 
The volume called "Register Soame,'" which, under the editorship 
of Mr, J. Henry Lea, has been so long in preparation, is at last 
completed and is ready for distribution. This volume of over 600 
pages contains a concise but exhaustive abstract of every will proved 
in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in 1620, comprising tlie two 
volumes known as Rej^ister Soame, containino^ 1366 wills, with 
about 40,000 references to persons and 10,000 to places, all thor- 
oughly indexed. This forms the first of a series which, if proper 
support be given, will cover at least ten years (1620-1630), and 
it is hoped the entire 17th century may be included. These ab- 
stracts are consecutive with the calandars, or indices to Testators, 
printed by the British Record Society, which are now in hand to 
the year 1619, thus making the series complete from the earliest 
registration in 1383. It is hoped that so important a work will 
meet with hearty recognition and will be generously subscribed for. 
The subscription price, $6.00, should be sent to the Treasurer, 
Mr. N. C. Nash. 



The Report of the Committee on Heraldry, by Henry Ernest 
Woods, A.M., Chairman: 
The Committee on Heraldry begs to report that no books or arti- 
cles of special interest have come to its attention during the year 
past, and that it has had very few queries to answer. 



The Report of the Committee on Epitaphs, by John Albree, Jr., 
Esq., Chairman : 

During the year, there have been added to the library manuscript 
copies of inscriptions from the following places : Ashby, Braintree, 
Gill, Springfield, and Uxbridge, Mass., Hamden, Conn., and 
Waitsfield, Vt. The manuscripts contributed are the result of vol- 
untary unpaid labor by those who have at heart the preservation of 
the history of their respective localities. The large number of 
manuscripts, already completed or in progress, show the extent of 
that interest. 

The Library has also acquired, at slight expense, a number of 
manuscripts, formerly owned by the late Bradford Kingman, con- 
taining many hundred inscriptions from Plymouth, Stoughton, and 
Brockton; and also from another source, over 5200 inscriptions, 
completely indexed, from the following counties in Nova Scotia : 
Annapolis, Caledonia, Cumberland, Digby, Guys, Halifax, and 
Kings. 



XXVlll N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

One of the purposes of the Committee is to emphasize the truth 
that old gravestones are not merely a source of "funny epitaphs," 
but that they contain facts of great value to historians, genealogists, 
conveyancers, and owners of real estate, and that, therefore, these 
facts must be preserved and placed where they may be readily acces- 
sible. 

Uniformity in the preparation of copies in this, as in all genea- 
logical work, is greatly desired. While it did not seem wise to 
draw up hard and fast rules prescribing the desired degree of uni- 
formity, yet it did seem practicable, by consulting those who 
through experience in the actual work had met and overcome diffi- 
culties, to arrive at an expression of opinion as to best methods. 
The result was the preparation of a circular, which was submitted 
for comment and criticism to a large number of those interested 
before it was finally approved and printed, under the title " Sug- 
gestions as to Copying Inscriptions." 

Three different methods for copying are shown in the circular, as 
follows, the choice depending on the skill and patience of the copy- 
ist and the time at disposal : 

(The stone is at Watertown, Mass.) 
First: Here lyes Buried y® 

Body of W^ Elizabeth 
Eve Wife to M"" Adam 
Eve Who Diad July 
28^*^ 1735 ill y« 78'^ 
Year of Her Age 

Second: Here lyes Buried ye | Body of Mrs Elizabeth | Eve Wife to 
Mr. Adam | Eve Who Diad July | 28th 1735 in ye 78th | 
Year of Her Age. 

Tldrd: Mrs. Elizabeth Eve, wife of Adam Eve, July 28, 1735, in her 
78th year. . 

In addition, there have been incorporated many valuable hints as 
to methods adopted to ensure accuracy in the copies. In short, the 
circular has been designed to meet the question arising so often, 
" What do you want, and how is it to be done? " The co-operation 
of the patriotic orders and local historical societies is sought in un- 
dertaking and accomplishing this important work for which they are 
well fitted by reason of their having an organization, thus allowing 
the work to be divided among several workers. 

Frequently the objection is raised that it needs an expert genealo- 
gist to make copies, and in reply we call attention to the volume, 
" Cohasset, Mass. Inscriptions," contributed in 1903 but bound and 
placed on the shelves this year. This manuscript, containing 1103 
inscriptions from six graveyards, was the work of the Cohasset 
Daughters of the American Revolution and is an excellent illustration 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. XXIX 

of what can be done by those interested in their local history. The 
prefatory note is included here because it shows the carefulness ex- 
ercised, and thus the result well serves as a model for work which 
should be undertaken in many towns where the stones are neglected 
and valuable facts in danger of disappearing, unless copies are 
made now : 

^^ Note. The copies have been revised and corrected by a com- 
parison with the original inscriptions. Where an inscription 
was found to be illegible, defective or insufficient, missing par- 
ticulars have been supplied from the record of the town and 
the churches and from family records and old diaries." 



The Report of the Committee on Collection of Records, by 
Stephen Paschall Sharpies, S.B. : 

Owing to the fact that the person who was appointed Chairman 
of this Committee declined to serve, no meeting of the Committee 
has been held. Individual members of the Committee have, how- 
ever, collected considerable material, and the Committee respectfully 
submit the following report. The Committee would respectfully 
suggest that all persons willing to copy records accessible to them 
would communicate the fact to Mr. Greenlaw, who will furnish 
them with suitable paper, and give them instructions in regard to 
the work. 

They request that the following rules be observed in preparing 
the record in a permanent form : 

First. That paper be used that is of a uniform size. The size 
most suitable for this purpose is a good typewriter paper measuring 
8 X lOJ inches. This paper, if used for writing upon, should have 
a line on the left hand an inch from the maro^in. A maro^in of an 
inch should also be left at the top and bottom of the page. If used 
for typewriting, the same rules should be observed in regard to 
margins. The spelling of the original should be carefully followed. 

Second. In all cases where it can be done, an index should be 
prepared, giving all names in the copy. In case of births and 
deaths, this index may be omitted provided the names are arranged 
alphabetically. 

The following records have been placed in the Society's custody 
during the year : 

Dover, N. H., Marriages, 1628-1823, 4500 marriages, compiled 
by John R. Ham, M.D., 1880-1902. Copied from Dr. Ham's 
original volume, now in possession of Elisha Rhodes Brown of 
Dover. 

This is an excellent piece of work and the title by no means de- 
scribes it. Not only are the marriages given, but in many cases 



XXX N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

the dates of birth and death and parents of the contracting parties, 
and the name of the person performing the ceremony. The book 
is arranged alphabetically according to the male names, and there is 
no index to the female names, so that it is a matter of considerable 
difficulty to find the marriage of a woman if the name of her hus- 
band is not known. The work contains not only the names of 
residents of Dover, but of all who have been married in the town, 
and of many who have had only a temporary connection with the 
town. It includes many persons from adjacent towns. In several 
cases births, deaths and marriages of families are given, as for in- 
stance, the Davis Family, p. 44, Henderson family, p. 102, Kielle 
family, p. 125, Meserve family, p. 145, Stackpole family, p. 192, 
Twombly family, pp. 210-213. 

The Parish Records of Andover, England, presented by Mrs. 
George Dana Board man Blanchard of Maiden, Mass. These records 
are contained in four volumes : 

1. Baptisms 1586 to 1628, with index to surnames. 

2. Baptisms from 1628 to 1650. Marriages 1587 to 1637. No 

index. 

3. Marriages from 1637 to 1650. Burials 1586 to 1632. No 

index. 

4. Burials from 1632 to 1648. No index. 

These volumes contain many names which are common in New 
England. Among these are Ayres, under various spellings, Blake, 
Baker, Biles, Curtis, Child, Cooper, Cooke, Dowse, Dean, Ed- 
munds, Francis, Foster, Greene, Goodale, Hunniwell, Homes, 
Hayden, Knight, James, eJewell, Noyce, Phillips, Turner, Venable, 
Waite, and West. 

Waitsfield, Vt., Cemetery Inscriptions, Old Common, Meadow, 
Irasville or Methodist, and Village Cemeteries. Copied and pre- 
sented by Matt Bushnell tlones, A.B., LL.B. 

These notes include only the vital statistics found on the stones, 
with such other information as may serve to identify the deceased. 
The names are arranged alphabetically and there is also an index to 
the families. 

Waitsfield, Yt. A Book of Records for Births, Deaths and 
Marriages, copied and presented by Matt Bushnell Jones, A.B.,

Howes, Prince, Diary of, from the original now in the possession

Great Barrington. Manuscript Copy of the Vital Records of the 
town, presented by the town. 



The Report of the Committee on Consolidated Index, by James 
Swift Rogers, A.B., Chairman : 

The work of verifying the names and places in the first fifty vol- 
umes of the Register, which was begun by the late Mr. Hassam 
as chairman of the Committee, has been completed. The verifica- 
tion of references and the grouping of variations of names has been 
carried about half way through the alphabet. The Committee 
thought it best to suspend this editorial work until the publication 
of the index was assured. 

A sample page was set up in three columns, of six point type, 
with the leading spelling of each name and the volume numbers in 
heavy faced black type. With this arrangement — which proves 
to be very economical and is believed to be satisfactory — the index 
will contain two thousand to twenty-five hundred pages. 

In order to get a basis of cost to subscribers, bids on this speci- 
men page were obtained from some of the largest printing houses in 
New England. 

A prospectus was then issued, proposing to print the index in 
parts, similar to quarterly numbers of the Register, at the price 
$5.00 per part to 200 subscribers, $2.50 per part to 400 subscribers, 
or $1.67 per part to 600 subscribers. 

Responses to this proposition, thus far, indicate about 250 sub- 
scribers willing to pay $5.00 per part; thus assuring the publica- 
tion at the highest price. 



XXXll N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

A second call to owners of complete sets, asking subscriptions at 
a maximum price of $2.50 per part, would probably bring in enough 
additional subscriptions to enable the Society to publish 400 copies 
at $2.50 each. 

The Committee believe that publication should begin at once ; 
that no more than the cost of the index should be charged the sub- 
scribers ; that the price be the same to all subscribers ; and that 
not more than fifty copies in excess of those subscribed for at the 
end of 1905 be*printed. 

As nearly three years will be required for printing the index, the 
cost to subscribers will probably be divided through that period. 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN 

Presented by William Prescott Greenlaw. 



Throughout the year 1904, the Librarian has given personal 
attention to the duties imposed upon him by the by-laws. He has, 
through the aid of an efficient staff and with the hearty cooperation 
of the various committees and of his fellow officers, kept the build- 
ing in repair, kept the Library open during the prescribed hours, 
assisted visitors, kept detailed records of all accessions, acknowl- 
edged all gifts and used all available means to catalogue, preserve 
and add to the collections in his care. He submits below a state- 
ment of the progress made during the year, some of the needs of 
the Library and the Cabinet and a list of donors whose generosity 
has added to the Society's collections. 

A.ccessions. 

The additions to the Library and the Cabinet have been in a 
rare degree appropriate to the chief purpose of the Library — the 
elucidation and illustration of the genealogy of New England fami- 
lies, their origin and migration. Three hundred and sixty-two 
genealogies have been secured, an exact duplication of last year's 
record. An unusually large number of English genealogical books, 
many of which are parish registers, have been acquired and large 
quantities of manuscripts have been received. The total accessions 
(not including 410 manuscripts received on deposit) number 1164 
volumes, 805 pamphlets and 114 miscellaneous articles. Of these, 
551 volumes and 56 pamphlets were purchased, 508 volumes and 
693 pamphlets were given, and 105 volumes and 56 pamphlets 
vrere received in exchange. 

Notable among 'the accessions of the year are a manuscript 
Blanchard genealogy gathered by the late George Dana Boardman 
Blanchard, of Maiden, and presented by his widow, a manuscript Cole 
genealogy compiled and given by Mr. Benjamin Nourse Goodale, of 
Saco, Me. , a manuscript Button genealogy presented by the compiler, 
Mr. William Tracy Eustis, of Boston, a manuscript Hewitt geneal- 
ogy given by Mrs. Frederick Law Olmsted, of Brookline, a manu- 
script Woodward genealogy presented by Mr. Frank Ernest Wood- 
ward, of Maiden, who compiled it, a manuscript copy of the vital 
records and cemetery inscriptions of Waitsfield, Yt., made and pre- 



XXXIV N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

sented by Mr. Matt BushnellJones, of Newton, a typewritten copy 
of Master Tate's record of Somersworth, N. H. families, made and 
indexed by Mr. James Swift Rogers, of Boston, a copy of the in- 
scriptions in the Elm Street Cemetery, Braintree, made by Messrs. 
Edward Henry Whorf, of Boston^ and Walter Faxon, of Lexington, 
and presented by Mr. Faxon, two rare manuscript plans of forts at 
Canso and Louisburg given by Dr. Arthur Howard Nichols, of 
Boston, an original volume of records of baptisms, marriages and 
burials in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, kept by Rev. 
Arthur Caverno, an oil portrait of Mr. Benjamin Barstow Torrey, 
treasurer of the Society from 1871 to 1904, painted by Mr. Walter 
Gilman Page at the Society's expense, an oil portrait of eToshua 
Winsor, of Duxbury, who was born May 1, 1749, and an oil paint- 
ing of the house in which he dwelt, donated by Mrs. F. Herbert 
Winsor, of Roxbury. The portraits of Joshua Winsor's second wife, 
Ruth (Thomas) Winsor and of his son, Seth, have long attracted 
attention in the Society's gallery, and, by this gift the family por- 
traits are reunited. These were painted by Mr. Winsor's son-in- 
law, Dr. Rufus Hathaway, whose widow, Judith (Winsor), died 
July 22, 1881, at the advanced age of 102 years, 10 months and 
11 days. 

Growth of the Library. 
The growth of the Library under the liberal use of money dur- 
ing the last three years, as shown by the statistics, has been grati- 
fying, but not wholly satisfactory. In the acquisition of desirable 
printed matter, the Society has not failed, even in the face of fierce 
competition from libraries outside of Boston, to secure most of the 
genealogical treasures sought. But in the matter of acquiring 
duplicate books for future use and also in gathering old manuscripts 
and copies of records and epitaphs, a larger measure of success is 
desirable. There is scarcely a member of the Society, who could 
not, in cooperation with the Committee on Collection of Records, 
the Committee on the Library, the Committee on Epitaphs or the 
Librarian, render valuable assistance in this direction. Let each 
member endeavor to add to the Society's Library copies of those in- 
scriptions, records and books, in which he or she has a personal in- 
terest. The various committees and the Librarian are always ready 
to furnish paper for copying records and to suggest methods of mak- 
ing copies. It is along this line of collection only that the Society 
can hope to maintain its acknowledged lead in competition with in- 
stitutions maintained in whole or in part by government aid. The 
main idea in the policy of the Society in gathering its Library is to 
secure everything that will assist in tracing the genealogies of New 
England families, and marked success has attended the efforts 
put forth to accomplish this througliout the whole history of the 
Society, and esj^ecially during the last ten years. 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN. XXXV 

Geyiealogies in Preparation. 

During the year, a directory of genealogies in preparation has 
been compiled and placed in the Library. Printed blanks asking 
for detailed information were sent out to persons engaged in com- 
piling genealogies, and 544 returns were received. These have been 
arranged alphabetically in two volumes in Tengwall Files, in such 
a manner that changes can be made whenever desirable without 
disturbing the order. This directory is being kept up to date, and 
information from it is supplied by mail upon request. 
Use of the Library. 
Probably more visitors used the Library in 1904 than in any 
other year of its history. Interest in genealogy seems to have had 
a slow but steady growth during the earlier years until about 1890. 
Then, under the stimulation of numerous patriotic-hereditary socie- 
ties, there was such an increase in the number of visitors that the 
Library has often been taxed to its limit, notwithstanding its greater 
facilities. The visitors have been more uniformly distributed 
throughout the year than formerly, and there seems to have been 
more genuine interest in tracing ancestry and less of the craze for 
joining societies. The excessive use of the books during the last 
ten or twelve years is shown in their present condition and in the 
increased expense of rebinding. Eventually, if the present interest 
continues, the use of the Library will have to be restricted, or 
many of the books be replaced by new copies. 

The policy of opening the Library so freely seems to have the 
support of the majority of the members and probably is a wise 
one, notwithstanding the added expense for wear and service. The 
membership is largely recruited from those who are frequent visi- 
tors and, while there are some visitors who abuse the privilege, they 
are comparatively few. This free policy has attracted and will con- 
tinue to attract bequests and donations ; and substantial exemptions 
from taxation and tariff duties are recognized in its maintenance. 

Bindijig. 

What can be done to secure in the printing of genealogical 
books the use of a durable book paper like that so common fifty or 
sixty years ago ? More than five times the amount of money that 
sufficed a dozen years ago for binding was required this year, and 
this increase was largely due to the inferior quality of paper used 
during the last twenty years. If the use of such inferior paper 
continues, later generations of investigators may search in vain for 
copies of many genealogical works. Measures ought to be taken at 
once to warn prospective publishers against the folly of trying to 
preserve genealogical data by committing it to such perishable paper 
as that used in many recent works, as the only outlook for ultimate 
preservation of a goodly number of such books is through the ex- 
pensive Emery process. 



XXXVl N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

The Library needs a special fund large enough to meet the annu- 
ally increasing expense of binding and rebinding. Another need 
is the accumulation of duplicate copies of the books most frequently 
consulted to replace worn out copies. These can be obtained more 
easily and with less expense while still in print, and systematic, con- 
tinuous efforts should be made to acquire them. 

Cataloguing. 

Good progress has been made in cataloguing. More than 
nine thousand cards have been added during the year, and at the 
present rate of progress from twelve to fifteen thousand cards can 
be written in 1905. The catalogue of the genealogies has been 
finished, and cards have been written for the Massachusetts munici- 
pal reports which were placed in storage. While it was not the 
original plan to catalogue town reports until more important de- 
partments were finished, it was thought best to do these so that 
additions could be made to them without duplicating. The expense 
of cataloguing these reports was very much reduced by using printed 
cards designed for the purpose. No library should be dependent 
on a walking catalogue, no matter how well he serves the purpose. 
A good analytical catalogue of the books and their contents is next 
in importance to having the books themselves, and it is exceedingly 
desirable that the work now in progress be continued without inter- 
ruption, until the library possesses such a guide to so much of its 
collections as are germane to its special field. 

A New Building Needed. 

In the last report of the Librarian, attention was called to the 
crowded condition of the Society's House, and a plan suggested for 
temporary relief. That plan has been adopted. A large mass of 
material consisting chiefly of municipal reports which were not con- 
sulted frequently has been stored in the loft of the Kent stable. 
The front room on the street floor has been fitted for the meet- 
ino^s of the Council and the various committees. A continuation 
of this plan of storing the least used divisions of the Library will 
enable the Society to get along for some years to come without 
serious inconvenience. Yet, even with this makeshift, the time 
eventually will come when the building will be inadequate to accom- 
modate the clerical force and the visitors who use the Library. 

The need of more room is not the chief reason for wanting a new 
building. Paintings, manuscripts, rare books and engravings of 
great value are in constant danger from fire, and must continue 
so until housed in safer quarters. A careless visitor, or a single 
match may inadvertently at any moment put, beyond the possi- 
bility of future examination all of the treasures gathered during 
the last sixty years. The interior construction of the building, with 
its large open areas, open stairway and abundance of inflammable 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN. XXXVll 

material courts disaster, if a fire once gets started. Every known 
precaution has been taken. The captain of the nearest fire com- 
pany has been called upon to examine the Society's property and 
the approaches to the same on all sides, and to make suggestions 
for lesseninor the risk and for action in an emero^encv. One of his 
suggestions should be borne in mind by all who use the library, and 
that is, that on account of the out of the way location of the nearest 
alarm boxes, it would be far better to communicate direct with the 
engine company on Bulfinch street (near the Revere House) by 
messenger and also by telephone, than to ring in an alarm from 
either box. 

Probably the least expensive way of insuring the preservation of 
the Library is to erect a plain brick building in the rear on the land 
recentl}^ acquired, as suggested in last year's report. 

Economy. 

A much larger annual expenditure of money is needed for the 
proper care of the collections in the Society's Library and Cabinet, 
for cataloguing, for binding and for making additions to the same. 
In fact, there is no division of the Society's work that could not be 
administered with better results were more money available. In 
view of this fact it would be wise to seek diligently to increase 
the invested funds and also to practice rigid economy in all depart- 
ments, but not to the extent of being penny wise and pound foolish. 

Service. 

In August of 1904, the Librarian completed a decade of ser- 
vice in the Library as an assistant and as Librarian. As Libra- 
rian, he can look back to the Library often years ago, with its 
two alcoves of genealogies and compare it with the Library of to- 
day, believing that he has been instrumental in accomplishing some- 
thing worth while. As a member of the Society, he can draw 
considerable satisfaction from his part in the various undertakings, 
that have increased the Society's usefulness during the past ten 
years. He has been especially fortunate in the selection of his as- 
sistants. Each is well qualified to fill the position she holds. Miss 
Stickney acts as assistant librarian. Miss Rayne has charge of the 
shelves, the binding and the loans and assists visitors, receiving 
some help from Miss Stickney when the room is crowded ; they both 
spend their spare time in cataloguing, to which Miss Chapman 
devotes her entire time. Miss Stickney and Miss Rayne are worthy 
of commendation for their uniformly courteous assistance to mem- 
bers and visitors. Miss Siders continues to do the clerical work 
in the Treasurer's department and Miss Thompson, who acts as 
stenographer for all the officers, devotes all spare time to copying 
records. The Librarian takes pleasure in saying that these ladies 
have given entire satisfaction in the performance of their duties.

MEMOIRS 

OF THE 

NEW-ENGLAND PIISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

Arranged by Rev. George Moulton Adams, D.D., Historian. 



The following pages contain obituary notices of members who 
died during the year 1904, with the addition of nineteen deceased 
in preceding years. The notices are arranged in the order in which 
the deaths occurred. 

1898. 

Richard Sims, M.A., F.R.A.S., was born at Oxford, Eng- 
land, in 1816, and was educated at the Chorister's School attached 
to New College. At a very youthful age he became a schoolmaster 
in his native city. Developing antiquarian proclivities, he attracted 
the favorable notice of Dr. Philip Bliss, the Oxford antiquary. On 
Dr. Bliss's recommendation, he in May, 1841, obtained a post as 
attendant in the Manuscripts Department at the British Museum. 

The keeper of the department. Sir Frederic Madden, recognized 
that Mr. Sims possessed very superior attainments to those usually 
found in the attendants, who in those days were mainly recruited 
from the ranks of gentlemen's servants. Madden encouraged him to 
pursue researches among the manuscripts on his own account, and 
in 1849 Mr. Sims won a high reputation among genealogists and 
archaeologists by publishing his useful " Index to the Pedigrees and 
Arms contained in the Heralds' Visitations and other Genealogical 
MSS. in the British Museum." The work has remained a standard 
authority among pedigree-hunters. Five years later he issued ano- 
ther volume of great practical utility, a " Handbook to the Library 
of the British Museum, with some account of the Principal Libra- 
ries of London," and soon after there appeared his "Manual for the 
Genealogist, Topographer, Antiquary, and Legal Professor," a val- 
uable guide to antiquarian research which reached a second edition. 
Sir Frederic Madden meanwhile employed Mr. Sims to aid him in 
his private literary work, and in that capacity Mr. Sims collected 
a mass of biographical materials which he placed at the disposal of 
other authors. He joined Mr. F. G. Netherclift, the well-known 



MEMOIRS. lix 

expert in handwriting, in producing in 1855 "The Autograph Mie- 
celhiny," a series of lithographed letters, with notes and commentary, 
and he contributed to Netherclift's "Handbook of Autographs" 
(1858-62) and "Autograph Souvenir" (1863-65). 

His literary and palajographical abilities were not allowed to go 
without reward at the Museum. In March, 1859, he was promoted 
to the rank of transcriber, and on the accession of Mr. E. A. Bond 
to the keepership of the Manuscripts Department in 1868 he became 
a senior assistant. In 1879 he was nominated a first-class assistant, 
the highest class of officials at the Museum below the keepers. No 
instance of similar promotion from the ranks has occurred in the 
Manuscripts Department. In 1882 Mr. Sims compiled and pub- 
lished a " Calendar of the Deeds and Documents belonging to the 
Corporation of Walsall," and in 1887 he retired from the Museum 
after forty-six years' admirable service. He thereupon settled in 
Oxford, occupying his leisure with a catalogue of manuscripts in 
public and private libraries relating to heraldry and topography. 

Mr. Sims was elected a corresponding member of this Society in 
1856. In June, 1896, the University of Oxford conferred on him 
the honorary degree of M. A. 

He died at Oxford, November 24, 1898. 



1899. 

George PuRNELL Fisher. About October twenty-fourth, 1682, 
the good ship '* Welcome" entered the capes of the Delaware, 
bearing William Penn, the proprietor of the three lower counties 
upon the Delaware. With him as passengers were John' Fisher 
and Margaret his wife with their two sons, John' and Thomas, the 
latter of whom was Penn's private secretary. From these two sons 
has come the Fisher family of Delaware, with its branches now 
spread out into many States. 

The eldest son of John'' was John^ whose son Jabez" was the 
father of General Thomas* Fisher, who was the father of George P.^ 
Fisher, the subject of this sketch. Jabez Fisher, the grandfather, 
married Elizabeth Purnell and settled on a farm in Worcester 
county, Maryland, and here on June 14, 1763, the father. General 
Thomas Fisher, was born. While Thomas was a small boy, the 
father moved to a farm near Lewes, Delaware. In the severe win- 
ter of 1779-80, Thomas, then a boy of seventeen, with his father's 
slave Samuel, was seized by a press gang and carried on board the 
British frigate " Roebuck," then lying near Cape Henlopen. His 
father only redeemed him by delivering one hundred bullocks on 
board the English frigate out of his own herd and those contributed 
by his neighbors. 



Ix N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

Thomas twice filled the office of high sheriff of Sussex County, 
and afterwards removing to Kent County was twice made hio-h 
sheriff of Kent. Just preceding the massacre of the French planters, 
in Santo Domingo, Stephen Girard, in one of his vessels trading to 
that island, took refuge in Lewes Creek, then the harbor of vessels 
from storms. Girard's Philadelphia creditors followed him to 
Lewes, had a writ issued for his arrest and put in the hands of 
Sheriff Fisher for execution. Girard, who was hot-blooded, became 
furious and struck at Fisher with a Spanish knife. Fisher parried 
the blow with one hand, felled Girard with the other hand, and 
then held him in durance vile until bail was furnished. Girard 
then went on his voyage. He filled the vessel with the treasures 
of the Santo Domingo planters, most of whom were afterwards mas- 
sacred by the natives, and whole families obliterated. Much of 
the treasure was never claimed. The unclaimed part formed the 
basis of Girard's colossal fortune, and is now in part represented 
by Girard College, in Philadelphia, and is a token of how singu- 
larly God overrules men's wickedness for human good. 

George Purnell Fisher was born at Milford, Delaware, October 
13, 1817. At the age of seventeen he entered the sophomore class 
at Dickinson College, where he graduated in July, 1838. Having 
decided upon the profession of law, he entered the office of Hon. 
John M. Clayton. He was admitted to the bar in April, 1841 ; set- 
tled at Dover and soon acquired a large clientage for a young man. 
When John M. Clayton became Secretary of State under President 
Taylor, Fisher entered into public life by becoming Clayton's confi- 
dential clerk. The Clayton-Bulwer Treaty was negotiated while 
Fisher was Secretary Clayton's clerk ; hence he was in close per- 
sonal relation with Sir Henry Lytton Bulwer, the British Minister. 
At one of the conferences at Washington, a house in the rear took 
fire, and Bulwer, Clayton and Fisher rushed out and helped the 
firemen with the crude appliances of that day to put the fire out. 
They then returned to their work, wet, grimy and smoked. 

In March, 1855, Mr. Fisher was appointed Attorney-General of 
the State of Delaware for the term of five years. In 1860 he was 
elected to Congress where he served from March, 1861, to March, 
1863, the stormy period of the first two years of the civil war. 
He was active in securing to the Federal cause Delaware's contin- 
gent of troops, and gave largely of his time and means to enlist 
and equip the Delaware regiments. President Lincoln conceived a 
warm feeling and had a high regard for Mr. Fisher. On the aboli- 
tion of the old courts and the creation of the Supreme Court of the 
District of Columbia, he appointed Fisher one of the justices of that 
court upon the expiration of his congressional term. As a judge, 
Mr. Fisher displayed great aptitude and ability, and was most favor- 
ably considered by his associates and by the public. He presided 



MEMOIRS. Ixi 

at the trial of John H. Surratt for participation in tlie assassination 
of President Lincohi. 

In May, 1870, Judge Fisher resigned his place upon the bench, 
and was appointed by President Grant United States Attorney for 
the District of Columbia. At the end of five years he resigned this 
office and returned to his home in Delaware, with no intention of 
again entering public life. In June, 1889, however, the position 
of First Auditor of the Treasury was tendered him by President 
Benjamin Harrison. This position he accepted and held until the 
change of administration in 1893. He then returned to the home 
of his childhood, lived quietly in his extensive library, and devoted 
the last years of his life to reading and literary pursuits. He was 
one of the most agreeable of men. His mind was so well stored 
with reminiscence and general information that it was a treat to 
both old and young to be in his company and listen to his entertain- 
ing and instructive conversation. His generous Christian spirit and 
honesty of purpose endeared him to all who came within the range 
of his friendship. After a short illness, he died in the City of Wash- 
ington, February 10, 1899, aged eighty-one years. 

In 1840 Mr. Fisher married Eliza A. McColley, who survives 
him with four children — -George P. Fisher, Jr., a lawyer in Chi- 
cago, Charles Fisher, Miss Virginia Fisher, and Mrs. Annie Fisher 
Cahoon. He was a devoted and exemplary husband and father, 
and has left in each stricken heart the impress of his own pure and 
useful life. 

Judge Fisher was a corresponding member of this Society, elected 
in 1863. 

Condensed from a memoir by lion. Charles B. Lore. 

Charles Henry Coote was born June 15, 1839, probably at 
Chester, England. Little is known of his early life. He entered 
the service of the Trustees of the British Museum in 1858, and re- 
mained in that institution till the time of his death, April 30, 1899. 
He was made first class attendant in 1869, second class Assistant in 
1881, and first class Assistant in 1896. He became one of the 
ablest, acutest and most learned geographers in the history of car- 
tography. He was indefatigable in his vocation in the Map Room 
of the Museum, and, on account of his very retentive memory and 
accurate judgment as to the value of old maps, exceptionally use- 
ful. He was much consulted by students in search of geographical 
information, which he was always most cheerfully ready to impart. 
Few men have had more thorough acquaintance with sixteenth, sev- 
enteenth and eighteenth century cartography. His knowledge of 
mediaeval maps was also very extensive. 

In 1878 he published in the New Shakspere Society's Transac- 



Ixii N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

tions^ a paper on " Sliakspere's New Map in Twelfth Night " ; in 
1886, with Mr. E. Dclmar Morgan, he prepared for the Hakluyt 
Society, " Early Voyages and Travels to Russia and Persia"; in 
1888 lie edited, with an introduction and bibliography, " A Repro- 
duction of Jolin Schoener's Globe of 1523 " ; in 1894 he published, 
with prologue and notes, " The Voyage from Lisbon to India, 
1505-6, by Alberius Vespuccius," and in 1894-5 he supplied the 
explanatory text to F. MuUer and Co.'s reproductions of "Remark- 
able Maps of the Fifteenth, Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries." 
He contributed several geographical and biographical articles to the 
ninth edition of the Encyclopaidia Brittanica, and to the Dictionary 
of National Biography. 

Mr. Coote was a corresponding member of this Society, elected 
in 1881. 

1900. 

William James Foley was born in Waltham, Massachusetts, 
September 20, 1812. He became a resident member of the New^- 
England Historic Genealogical Society in 1866, and was the Li- 
brarian of the Society from 1869 to 1871. He died in Boston, 
February 1, 1900. 

Hon. Samuel Constantine Burke, F.R.G.S., of Kingston, 
Jamaica, was born in Kingston, February 10, 1833, and died in 
Newington, St. Andrew, Jamaica, May 23, 1900. The author of 
his own success in life, he, by his close reading and his persistent 
assiduity in his boyhood and youthful days, aided by a bright and 
retentive memory and readiness of speech, raised himself to positions 
of importance and trust in the Government of his native land. 

Mr. Burke was admitted an Attorney of the Supreme Court of 
Jamaica in 1855, and was Recorder of the City of Kingston, from 

1862 to 1866. He was a Member of the House of Assembly from 

1863 to 1866. In October, 1869, Mr. Burke was appointed Crown 
Solicitor, and was created an Advocate of the Supreme Court in 
January, 1870. He was made one of the Assistants of the Attor- 
ney General in 1870, and acted as Attorney General and ex-officio 
member of the Legislative Council and of the Privy Council seven 
times during the years 1874 to 1888. He was an official member 
of the Legislative Council from 1878 to 1881, when he resigned 
the seat. 

In 1894 he was elected member of the Legislative Council for 
Kingston and Saint Andrew; and in 1896, he was returned as 
member for the important parish of Saint Thomas. A fellow of the 
Royal Geographical Society, and the Royal Colonial and Imperial 
Institute, he also was Chairman of the Jamaica Cooperative Fire 



MEMOIRS. Ixiii 

Insurance Company, and the senior Vice-President of the Royal 
Jamaica Society of Agriculture and Commerce and Merchants' Ex- 
change. He held the position of Provincial Grand Master of the 
Grand Lodge of Scotland, and by his occasional visits to the mother 
country he did good service in maintaining the traditions and pro- 
moting the interests of Colonial Freemasonry. 

"In the legal profession, of which he was a distinguished mem- 
ber, he enjoyed the esteem and respect of the Judges and the pro- 
fession at large. As a patriot, the resolute champion of the political 
rights and privileges of his fellow colonists, he ever stood undaunted 
by any consideration, so long as he was assured of the justice of his 
cause. A facile, fluent, and persuasive speaker, he knew how to 
win his way to the heart as well as to the intelligence of his audi- 
ence. He could, moreover, point to an honorable record of service 
loyally and effectually rendered to the advancement of the political, 
social, and moral welfare of his country. 

" Nor was Mr. Burke less to be admired in his social and domestic 
life. He was a sincere Christian, as the services he always rendered 
in the Church of his parish testify. His charity was extensive, but 
his was a nature ' which did good by stealth and blushed to find it 
fame.' In him the deserving poor and humble have lost an earnest, 
sincere friend." 

He was a loving husband and an affectionate, devoted f^xther. 
He leaves a widow and six children, three sons and three daughters. 
He was esteemed and respected by his fellow colonists in general, 
as also, by a large and distinguished circle of friends in England, 
to whom he had commended himself by his intelligence, his charm- 
ing personality, and his exceptional conversational powers. 

Mr. Burke was a corresponding member of this Society, elected 
in 1880. 

1901. 
Charles Chase Dame, son of Joseph and Satira (Chase) Dame, 
was born at Kittery Point, District of Maine, Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts, June 5, 1819. "He was a descendant of John 
Dame, who came from England in 1633, and settled in what is now 
Dover, New Hampshire. He was educated in the public schools of 
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and at South New Market Academy. 
He chose the profession of his father, and taught schools in Brent- 
wood, New Hampshire, and Newbury, Lynn, Newburyport, Mas- 
sachusetts, and in 1851 took charge of the English Department of 
Chauncy Hall School in Boston, where he remained until 1860, 
when he resigned and opened a law office in Boston, having been 
admitted to practice in the courts of Massachusetts in 1859. He 
was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of the United States

While teaching in Lynn and Boston and also while practisino- 
law, he resided in Newburyport. He was appointed Collector of 
Internal Revenue by President Andrew elohnson, and held the 
position under successive administrations till 1883, when he resigned 
and resumed tlie practice of law in Newburyport. He was especi- 
ally interested in the welfare of his adopted city, and was its Mayor 
in 1886. He was a member of the State Senate in 1868. He was 
a director of the Merchants National Bank and a trustee of the 
Institution for Savings in Newburyport." He was prominent in 
the Masonic order, and received the highest honors of the fraternity. 
In 1867, as Grand Master, he dedicated the Masonic Temple in 
Boston, which was burned in 1895. He was a life member of the 
New-England Historic Genealogical Society, elected in 1863. 

"In all the relations of life, Mr. Dame was diligent, honorable, 
conscientious, impartial. With limited opportunities in his youth, 
by persistent and studious effort, he won an honorable place in his 
profession. His sense of justice was his safe and constant guide, 
and being true to this he was fearless of opposition, calm amid 
perplexities, generous and kind. His memory will be long and 
tenderly cherished by his friends and associates." 

He died at Newburyport, January 19, 1901. 

William Maxwell Evarts, LL.D., was born in Boston, at 
No. 22 (now 55) Pinckney Street, February 6, 1818, and died in 
New York City, February 28, 1901. His father, Jeremiah Evarts 
(1781-1831), was a distinguished lawyer and prominently con- 
nected with the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign 
Missions. His mother, Mehetabel Sherman, was a daughter of 
Roger and Rebecca (Prescott) Sherman. Roger Sherman was the 
signer of the Declaration of Independence. The son, William 
Maxwell, studied at the Boston Latin School, and was graduated 
at Yale in 1837. He was one of the four founders of the Yale 
Literary Magazine in 1836. He studied law at Harvard, and in 
New York City under Daniel Lord, and began the practice of law 
in New York in 1841. 

William Maxwell Evarts was a leading figure in the legal and 
political world ; a figure so prominent that the minutiae of the ordi- 
nary life pass into insignificance when the important features of his 
career are considered. His reputation for learning and ability was 
early establislied. His forensic efforts enhanced his reputation rap- 
idly at a time when oratory passed for more in courts than now. 
He held the position of Assistant United States District Attorney 
from 1849 to L853. He was a tower of strength in connection with 
almost every political and legal crisis in the United States from 
1851, 'when he conducted successfully the prosecution of the Cuban

filibusters on board the Cleopatra; the Lemmon slave case, in 
which he opposed Charles O'Conor, counsel for the State of Vir- 
ginia (1857-60) ; the Parrish will contest, and that of Mrs. Gard- 
ner, mother of President Tyler's wife. In 1860 he was regarded 
as the most brilliant speaker in the Kepublican national convention, 
and presented the name of William H. Seward for the presidential 
nomination. He was counsel for the government in establishing, 
before the Supreme Court, the right of the government to condemn 
as prizes captured vessels according to the laws of war (1862) ; he 
maintained the unconstitutionality of state laws taxing United States 
bonds or national bank stock without the authorization of Congress 
(1865-66). 

In 1868 President Johnson made him his chief counsel in the im- 
peachment trial before the United States Senate, and on July 15, 
1868, made him Attorney-General in his cabinet. In 1872 he was 
the counsel for the United States before the Alabama Claims arbi- 
tration tribunal at Geneva, and he presented the arguments that led 
to the final decision in favor of his client. In 1874-75 he was senior 
counsel for Henry Ward Beecher. In 1877 he was the advocate 
of the Republican party before the electoral commission, and Presi- 
dent Hayes made him his Secretary of State. In 1881, he was 
delegate from the United States to the International monetary con- 
ference in Paris. He was a United States senator from New York 
from 1885-91, and at the close of his term he resumed the practice 
of law with the firm of Evarts, Choate and Beaman, in New York 
City. 

Mr. Evarts was the recipient of many honors from colleges and 
other learned organizations. He was elected an honorary member 
of this Society in 1892. He was often the orator on public occa- 
sions. For ten years before his death he lived in retirement. His 
wife was Helen Minerva Wardner, of Windsor, Vermont, to whom 
he was married in 1843. They had nine children, of whom all, but 
one, survived the father, 

Charles Swift Riche Hildeburn was born in Philadelphia, 14 
August, 1855, and was the son of Joseph Emlen Howell Hildeburn 
and Rosina Margarita, daughter of Charles Swift, who, by an act 
of Legislature, approved 20 March, 1810, changed his name to 
Charles Swift Riche. The father was born 26 February, 1812, and 
the mother, 16 September, 1822 ; and they were married 17 July, 
1854. Mr. Hildeburn's ancestors were prominent in the mercan- 
tile world, and some of them had been honored by important com- 
missions under the Proprietary, the Colonial Government of Sweden 
on Delaware Bay, and also under the Government of the Duke of 
York.

He was bred to mercantile business, but a scliolarly mind early 
induced him to abandon trade for antiquarian pursuits, for which he 
possessed not only a strong incUnatlon but also a peculiar fitness. 
He became an active member of the Historical Society of Pennsyl- 
vania at a time when it necessitated an untiring eft'ort to arouse the 
public to the imj)ortance of this institution, and for many years he 
was one of a few devoted spirits, who, liaving the work of the So- 
ciety much at heart, expended their time and spent their money 
generously — even lavishly — to lay the foundations of the present 
library. 

He was one of the first to recognize the importance of genealog- 
ical research in its relation to the history of the making of the 
American people, and he was the first in Pennsylvania to apply to 
that science the methods now employed by the painstaking, fair 
genealogist who rather seeks from actual records austere truth, than 
draws pleasing but doubtful conclusions from carelessly compiled 
books. His mind was so peculiarly constructed, and his love of ac- 
curacy so great, that to knowingly introduce a questionable link in 
a line of descent would to him have been absolutely impossible, and 
his judgment in this character of work was so good that his decisions 
in some cases, where only circumstantial evidence was available, 
were subsequently found to be absolutely correct. 

Mr. Hildeburn's knowledge of early issues of the Colonial presses 
was, I think, unsurpassed, and many of the best collections of such 
books owe their completeness solely to his unselfish eflforts. As a 
collector of old and rare prints he ranked very high, and his untir- 
ing energy enabled him to obtain many portraits which others, after 
a careful search, had failed to secure. His opinion upon manu- 
scripts and autographs was, I believe, always considered as final by 
his associates and by many collectors and dealers at home and 
abroad. His most important undertaking, however, from one point 
of view at least, was the compilation of the Statutes at Large of 
Pennsylvania prior to 1800. As a member of the Commission ap- 
pointed under an act of Assembly for this purpose, and afterwards 
as clerk of the same, he finished the laws to about the year 1760 
from the original manuscripts, they never having before been all 
printed at length. To these he added a number of explanatory 
notes. 

Mr. Hildeburn's principal published works are: "A Century of 
Printing. The issues of the Press in Pennsylvania, 1685-1784." 
Philadelphia, 1885, 1886, 2 vols., 4to. ; "Inscriptions in St. Peter's 
Churchyard," Philadelphia, 1879, 12mo. ; "Statutes at Large of 
Pennsylvania, 1700-1760." He was also the author of a large num- 
ber of magazine and newspaper articles on various historical subjects. 
Mr. Hildeburn, at the time of his death, was a member of the His- 
torical Society of Pennsylvania, of the Genealogical and Colonial 



MEMOIRS. Ixvii 

Societies of Pennsylvania (being one of the founders and one of the 
first officers of the two latter) and of a number of kindred institu- 
tions. He was a corresponding member of the New-England His- 
toric Genealogical Society, elected in 1878. He was, for many 
years, Librarian of the Philadelphia AtheniXium, and made frequent 
trips to England and to the continent in connection with his pro- 
fession. 

He died at Bologna, Italy, 2 May, 1901. He married, 12 June, 
1894, Sarah Elizabeth Winchester, by whom he had no issue.

John Chester Inches was born in Poughkeepsie, New York,

Joseph Beale Glover, a resident member of this Society, ad- 
mitted June 7, 1871, died in Boston, at his home, 132 Common- 
wealth Avenue, August 12, 1902. He was born in Dorchester, 
Massachusetts, March 5, 1815. His father was James Glover, 
from whose family the name of " Glover's Corner," in Dorchester, 
was derived. James Glover was the son of Alexander and Hannah 
Glover. The mother of Joseph Beale Glover was Jane (Beale) 
Glover, daughter of Joseph and Lilly Beale of Quincy. 

Joseph Beale Glover resided in Dorchester until he was fourteen 
years of age, when he removed to Boston. He was first connected 
in business with a wholesale grocery firm, and afterwards trans- 
ferred his interests to the commission business, first in Milk Street, 
and later at the corner of Broad and Central Streets, having as 
partners at different times men who were then, or afterwards, 
prominently identified with the commercial pursuits of Boston. He 
retired from active business in 1870. He was interested always in 
charitable undertakings. He was one of the trustees of the Per- 
kins Institution for the Blind, a member of the Somerset Club and 
other social organizations, a pew holder in King's Chapel, and re- 
markable for the extent and number of his benefactions to various 
Boston charities. 

Under his will, two hundred and thirty-seven thousand dollars 
were given outright to charitable institutions, and one hundred thou- 
sand left in trust for benevolent purposes after the death of a devisee. 
In addition, the Perkins Institution and Massachusetts School for 
the Blind (generously remembered before in money bequests) were 
given the right to purchase certain estates on Boylston Street, near 
the Common, for one hundred thousand dollars, being property

worth probably twice that amount, a privilege (if acted upon) 
equivalent to another large gift. 

About fifty different organizations or institutions were remem- 
bered in his will, nearly all located in or near Boston. The princi- 
pal of these were the Perkins Institution, the McLean Asylum, the 
Boston Lying-in Hospital, the Eye and Ear Infirmary, the Massa- 
chusetts Homoeopathic Hospital, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, 
and the Trustees of Public Reservations in Massachusetts. 

Mr. Glover died a bachelor, with no immediate family. His life 
was characterized by unremitting industry, exemplary self-denial, 
and unquestionable integrity. His intellect was clear, keen and 
alert to the last moment.

Charles Henry Norris, a resident member, admitted in 1889, 
died at Salem, Massachusetts, August 31, 1902. He was a native 
of Salem, the son of Jeremiah and Dolly (Safford) Norris, and was 
born April 26, 1826. He was graduated from the Salem English 
High School, in 1840, learned the tailor's trade, and entered busi- 
ness for himself at an early age. In 1851 he was the junior mem- 
ber of the firm of Mudge and Norris, merchant tailors, at 159 
Essex Street. In 1853, the firm name was Norris and Davis. In 
1861, he was again alone on the corner of Central and Essex Streets, 
and he continued to conduct business in that way until he disposed of 
it, to his two sons, about the year 1883, when he retired. 

Mr. Norris was a member of the Common Council of Salem in 
1860, '61 and '62, and he also served in the Legislature. He was 
a prominent Odd Fellow and Freemason, and the founder of the 
Masonic Grandmasters' Association, and at the annual gatherings 
of this body delivered lectures, written in the form of verse, which 
were much enjoyed by his audience. He was president of the Colo- 
nial Club of Salem, whose members he entertained with talks on his 
travels, and with a review of the year. He was the life of any 
company, a lover of music, an accomplished player upon the harp 
and piano, the French horn and other instruments. He was a mem- 
ber of the Salem Brass Band, at the time when Jerome Smith was 
its leader. 

Mr. Norris's interest in his ancestry was more than that of the 
average person. He traced his descent from Kev. Edward Norris, 
who, after arrival from England, joined the Church in Salem, De- 
cember 29, 1639, and was ordained as colleague pastor with Rev. 
Hugh Peters, at Salem, March 16, 1640. The line from Kev. Ed- 
ward' Norris, was through Edward,* Edward,^ Edward, % Ed- 
ward," Edward,^ and Jeremiah' — the last named being the father of

Oliver Bliss Stebbins was born in South Boston, December 
22, 1833, the son of John Bliss Stebbins, M.D., and Mary Ann 
(Whitman) Stebbins. He was a descendant, in the eighth gener- 
ation, from Rowland Stebbing, who was born in England in 1594, 
and came to America in 1634, in the ship " Francis " from Ipswich, 
England, with his wife Sarah and two sons and two daughters. 
Rowland and his family came to Springfield, Massachusetts, soon

linquished it for the more congenial pursuit of literature. In 1855 
he was elected a member of the Mattapan Literary Association of 
South Boston, a society for the training of young men in literary 
matters. He served as director and secretary of the Association, 
and was a member of the lecture committee. The outbreak of the 
war terminated the usefulness of the organization. Pie was assist- 
ant editor of the Mattapan Register^ a weekly paper devoted main- 
ly to South Boston matters. His contributions, both in prose and

Glass, and was a frequent contributor to other papers. 

In 1876 he prepared a manuscript history of Dorchester Neck 
in the Revolution; a "History of the Ilawes Grammar School," 
which constitutes about half of the volume published as the "Hawes 
School Memorial"; and he also published, in the fourth volume of 
Memorial Biographies of the New-England Historic Genealogical 
Society, a life of General William H. Sumner, which received the 
highest praise from reviewers. He was a member of the Hawes 
Schoolboys' Association, and its president in 1899. A close stu- 
dent of history and the drama, he collected a valuable library of 
about two thousand volumes besides numerous pamphlets, devoted 
to these subjects. In 1898 he delivered lectures on " Macbeth " be- 
fore the Playgoers' Club. In 1895 he wrote a "History of the 
Boston Museum," which was published in the .Bostonian^ now the 
National Magazine.

1655, and was four years Commissioner to the New England Colo- 
nies. He died at Hartford, May 30, 1709. 

His son Hezekiah, who married Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. Jer- 
emiah Hobart, was Secretary of the Colony of Connecticut, 1712— 
1734, and died at Hartford, December 24, 1741. His son George 
(Yale College, 1729) married Mary, daughter of Rev. Timothy 
Woodbridge, was Secretary of the Colony of Connecticut, 1734- 
1796, and died at Hartford, April 26, 1796. His son Samuel (Yale 
College, 1758) married Ruth, daughter of Thomas Belden, whose 
first husband was Captain John Stoughton of Windsor. In 1776, 
Samuel Wyllys was appointed by Congress Colonel of a regiment 
on the " Continental establishment," in which capacity he served 
with much reputation throughout the war. He commanded a regi- 
ment at the siege of Boston, was made Major-General of the Con- 
necticut militia, was Secretary of the State of Connecticut, 1796- 
1809, and died at Hartford, June 9, 1823. This office of Secre- 
tary, so important in the history of the Colony, was held for ninety- 
seven years, without a break, by father, son and grandson. Samuel 
Wyllys's daughter, Mary Woodbridge Wyllys, married John Mico 
Gannett, and their son John Palsgrave was the father of William 
Wyllys Gannett, the subject of this memoir. 

Mr. Gannett passed his early youth in Boston, attending the 
public and Latin schools there. In 1854 his family moved to Cam- 
bridge, where he entered the High School, but left within the year 
to go into business, receiving his commercial training in the old 
shipping house of Sampson and Tappan. In 1863-4 he was in Cal- 
cutta, as confidential assistant to Messrs. Goddard and Company. 
He was book-keeper and confidential assistant in several business 
houses both in Boston and New York, and was at one time treas- 
urer of the Boston Sugar Refinery, and later treasurer of the Mas- 
sachusetts Horticultural Society. 



MEMOIRS. ' IXXV 

Mr. Gannett was singularly fortunate in his personal character- 
istics. A man of deep affections and innate refinement, he had 
fully inherited the Wyllys grace of person and suavity of address, 
with its alert, distinguished demeanor. Unaware himself of tliese 
gifts, he yet always strove to carry out in his daily life the princi- 
ples of integrity and of manliness, the love of literary culture and 
aesthetic tastes which made him so delightful a companion. 

Eagerness for any form of fidelity, and love for positive results 
in work, led him to give the spare hours of his later years to gene- 
alogical researcb, especially among the branches of the Wyllys, 
Brattle, Stiles, and Gannett families, there being many intermar- 
riages in the three latter. He became a resident member of this 
Society in 1896. His manuscripts were exquisite specimens of writ- 
ten work, and of authentic data. He was a great reader, and as 
a critic his judgments were keen, swift, broad, courteous and unfail- 
ingly helpful. While liberal in his views and sympathies, he never 
was indefinite in opinion or careless in statement, valuing truth as 
the touchstone with which he probed the worth of the many human 
interests for which he cared. 

Mr. Gannett was married, March 22, 1871, to Ellen Sumner, 
daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Tileston) Bates. He died at Mor- 
ristown, New Jersey, September 23, 1903. 

John Clark Gilbert was born in Hillsboro, New Hampshire, 
November 2, 1832, and died in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, Oc- 
tober 31, 1903. He was the son of Joseph and Alvira (Moore) 
Gilbert. He traced his descent from Humphrey Gilbert, who set- 
tled in Ipswich, Massachusetts, in 1648, and who is said to have 
been a grandson of Sir Humphrey Gilbert. The grandsons of 
Humphrey Gilbert of Ipswich were Capt. Samuel Gilbert and Lieut. 
Joseph Gilbert, of Littleton, Massachusetts, who marched to Cam- 
bridge under Col. William Prescott in May, 1775, and who later 
distinguished themselves for bravery at the battle of Bunker Hill 
and served at Dorchester Heights. The subject of our sketch, John 
Clark Gilbe^t, was the great-grandson of this Joseph Gilbert of 
Revolutionary fame. 

After completing his studies at the Hancock (New Hampshire) 
Academy, Mr. Gilbert entered the employ of his uncle John Gil- 
bert, Jr., in Boston, and later became a partner and succeeded to 
the business in 1864. August 23, 1855, he married Abby Jane 
Keay, of China, Maine, who died January 3, 1861. Later, he 
married his wife's sister, Lizzie Lake Keay. The children by the 
first marriage were Susan Alice and John Clark, both of whom are 
deceased. Of the second union, the children are Mary Abby, James 
Porter, Carrie Louise, and Bessie, all of whom with his widow sur- 
vive him.

Mr. Gilbert was the conceded peer of any of his contemporaries in 
his particuhir line. He possessed a remarkably clear insight into all 
commercial matters, and by close application rounded out a success- 
ful business life. His was the oldest grocery in Boston, havinor 
been established in 1830. He was fond of reminiscence, and liked 
particularly that eventful period, the Civil War. He fitted out 
nearly every vessel sailing from this port at that time, and the old 
store was a rendezvous for the line and staff, from midshipman to 
admiral. Many were the exciting narratives treasured by him, 
which, told in later years, made him an instructive a,nd entertaining 
host. 

He was a man of strong individuality, conservative purpose, a 
good judge of men and of business transactions. He had a firm 
will yet a sympathetic nature, proven by a remarkable devotion to 
home and family, and he always held a high regard for that prince 
of virtues, sterling integrity. Mr. Gilbert was a resident member 
of this Society, elected in 1885.

William Henry Allen was a lineal descendant, in the eighth 
generation, from Walter Allen who was in Newbury, Massachu- 
setts, in 1640. He was the only son of Silas iVUen (originally of 
Leominster, Massachusetts) and Mary Jane (Presbry) Allen of 
Dorchester, Massachusetts. He was born in Boston, January 10, 
1836, and died at his residence on Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, 
November 25, 1903. 

He attended the public schools of Boston, graduating first from 
the Brimmer Grammar School, where he received a Franklin medal, 
and finally from the English High in July, 1852. Immediately 
after leaving school he entered the store of Field and Converse, 
leather n^erchants. By his integrity, energy, and ability he w^on a 
place for himself in this firm, and was admitted a partner in 1858, 
at the age of twenty-two. Heavy business responsibilities came to 
him at once. His whole business career of over fifty-one years was 
with this firm and its various successors, namely : Field, Converse 
and Allen, Allen and Fiekl, Allen, Field and Lawrence (from 1872 
to 1894), and W. H. Allen and Son, which was the style of the 
firm at the time of his death. He was the senior member of each 
of the last three firms. 

January 25, 1860, he married Adeline Amanda, daughter of 
Stephen Smith, of Boston, who survives him. Of this union there 
was one son, William Lothrop Allen. 

Mr. Allen had a vigorous constitution and splendid physique, and 
was always interested in sports and games of all sorts, and retained 
this interest long after he could take active part in them. As a

young man he was a member of the New England Guards, a mili- 
tary organization of that period. He was interested in Masonic 
matters, and was a member of the lodge of Eleusis, and a Knight 
Templar of the St. Bernard Commandery. He was one of the 
original members of the Union Club of Boston, and also one of the 
earliest members of the Commercial Club of that city. He became 
a resident member of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society 
in 1879. He occupied many positions of trust and responsibility, 
which he filled with ability and conscientious faithfulness. From 
1879 until the time of his death he was a Director of the State 
National Bank of Boston, and prior to that period for several years 
he was a Director of the Shawmut National Bank. 

Mr. Allen was a gentleman and merchant of the old school, of 
sterling qualities in every way. His home life was a particularly 
happy one, and he was a devoted son, husband and father. His 
long business career was an honorable one, and his judgment in his 
line of business was always valued. With firm convictions, he was 
courteous and considerate to all with whom he came in contact.

1904. 

Richard Price Hallowell, son of Morris Longstreth and 
Hannah Smitli (Penrose) Hallowell, was born in Philadelphia, 
December 16, 1835. He became a life member of the New-Eng- 
land Historic Genealogical Society in 1899. He was a descendant 
of John Hallowell, who came from Hucknow, Nottinghamshire, 
England, in 1682, and settled in Darby, Pennsylvania. His line 
of descent was John,' Thomas,^ William,' Caleb,'' Charles Tyson,* 
Morris Longstreth,® Richard Price.' He was educated in the 
Philadelphia schools and at Haverford College, spending two years 
at the latter institution. 

As a boy he entered the wool house of H. Robinson and Com- 
pany in Philadelphia. He came to Boston in 1858, and started 
business on his own account, being the senior member of the firm 
of Hallowell and Howland, afterwards changed to Hallowell and 
Coburn, dealers in wool. October 26, 1859, he was married to 
Anna Coffin, daughter of Edward M. and Maria (Mott) Davis. 
Her mother was a daughter of James and Lucretia (Coffin) Mott. 
Mr. Hallowell resided in West Medford, Massachusetts, and was 
one of the Selectmen of Medford in 1872 and '73, otherwise he 
held no public office. His ancestors belonged to the Society of 
Friends, and he was a member of the liberal branch of that faith. 
He was actively identified with the leading movements for reform. 

He was an abolitionist of the Wendell Phillips and John Brown 
school, and with George L. Stearns and others took a very active 



Ixxviii N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

part in recruiting colored men for the 54th and 55th Massachusetts 
Regiments of colored troops for the civil war. His brother, Col. 
Edward N. Hallo well, commanded the 54th Regltnent, succeedino- 
Col. R(^bert G. Shaw, and was afterwards breveted as Brigadier- 
General. Another brother, Col. Norwood P. Hallowell, com- 
manded the 55th Regiment. His older brother, William Penrose 
Hallowell, was also an officer in the 55th Regiment. It was one 
of the greatest regrets in Mr. Richard P. Hallowell's life that he 
was not able to enlist with his brothers. Circumstances over which 
he had no control, however, demanded his presence at home, and 
prevented his taking an active part in the field. He fully made up 
for this, nevertheless, by his energy and enthusiasm in the recruiting 
and equipping of troops, and by his many other activities in work 
which was essential for the conducting of a successful campaign at 
the front. 

After the close of the Civil War, Mr. Hallowell took an active 
part in the efforts to promote the education of the negro and to 
protect him in his civil rights. He was a zealous advocate of woman 
suffrage, writing and speaking in its behalf, and holding official 
positions in the New England Association from its organization. 
He co-operated with other free religionists in the organization of the 
Free Religious Association, and was treasurer for many years. He 
was a frequent contributor to the press, writing usually over his 
own signature. He was the author of two books, "The Quaker 
Invasion of Massachusetts," published in 1883, and "The Pioneer 
Quakers," in 1886. These books are considered as authority on 
the Quakers in the early history of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. 
He was a man of stronof convictions, and acted from a hi"-h sense 
of duty in everything he did. 

It is quite remarkable that three sons of this family of Quaker 
stock, imbued with all the peace loving instincts of their ancestors, 
should have taken part in the Civil War with such energy and zeal, 
and that the fourth should have spent so much time and money in 
raising troops for that war. It is to be noted, however, that they 
did not take up the sword until they thought they saw the oppor- 
tunity of helping the negro secure his rights, and in this they were 
consistent with the traditions of their ancestors. 

Mr. Hallowell died January 5, 1904. His wife, two daughters 
and two sons survive him.

Rev. George Mooar, D.D., who died in Oakland, California, 
January 17, 1904, was a native of the West Parish of Andover, 
Massachusetts, where he was born May 27, 1830. He came of an 
old and worthy family whose first American representative, Abra- 



MEMOIRS. Ixxix 

ham' Mooar, was married in Andovcr, December 14, 1G87, to Pris- 
cilla Poor of the same town. Their son, Timothy^ Mooar, married, 
May 12, 1712, Anne, daughter of Jonatlian and Anne (Lovejoy) 
BLanchard ; their son, Benjamin,^ by wife Abiah Hill, liad a son 
Benjamin,* wlio married Hannah, daugliter of Samuel and Priscilla 
(Chandler) Phelps ; and their son Benjamin^ married, as liis second 
wife, Susan, daughter of Deacon Asa and Hannah (Peabody) 
Cummings, whose youngest child was George, the subject of this 
memoir. 

The boy grew up in a home of intelligence, refinement, and char- 
acter, but of very limited means. By diligent economy he was able 
to go through the course at Phillips Academy, and then at Williams 
College (1847-51). During his course of study he taught a pub- 
lic school in Billerica, and in the academies of Stockbridge, Prov- 
incctown and Yarmouth. At Yarmouth he had as an assistant 
Miss Sarah Comstock of Centerbrook (Essex), Connecticut, to 
whom he was married October 5, 1855. He entered Andovcr 
Theological Seminary in 1852, graduating in 1855. 

The people of his native town had such admiration for him that 
they immediately settled him as pastor of the South Church. His 
sermons were full of strong thought, lucidly expressed, carrying 
conviction and persuasion to an unusual degree. He was always 
the delight of the best educated, the keenest thinkers, and also 
attractive to people of ordinary qualities from his clearness, kindli- 
ness and deep earnestness. In 1861 he accepted a call to the First 
Church of Oakland, California, one reason for his removal being 
the hope that his wife's health would be improved by the new cli- 
mate. After twelve years of very successful ministry in Oakland 
he was elected Professor of Systematic Tlieology in the new Con- 
gregational Seminary in that city, a position which he filled with 
much credit for thirty years. With rare insight and breadth he 
led his pupils into wise paths of thought, blending a strong con- 
servatism with the fullest hospitality toward all genuine progress. 
He died January 24, 1904. 

Dr. Mooar was for many years a member of the editorial staflf of 
The Pacific, the organ of the Congregationalists of California. In 
1881) he gave to the press a volume of sermons. He compiled a 
genealogy of the Mooar (Moore) family, which was published in 
1901, and one of the descendants of Isaac Cummings, which was 
issued two years later. Dr. Mooar was a resident member of the 
New-England Historic Genealogical Society, elected in 1883. 

One of the noblest thin^^s Dr. Mooar did in his loncf and useful 
career was the recognition of intelligence and character in Chris- 
tian Chinamen in California. "I am not afraid that the Chinese 
will be too heathen for us, but that we shall not be Christian enough

for them," was one of his remarks. He led his house-servant, Gee 
Gam, into remarkably clear knowledge and practice of the Christian 
religion, gave him a seat in his family pew, and the right hand of 
fellowship into the Church ; and was the chief means of developing 
him into the strong preacher and pastor lie has now become. Mrs. 
Mooar entered most heartily into all the steps of this noble work, 
though she did not live to see its full development. She passed 
away September 29, 1899. Four married daughters survive Dr. 
and Mrs. Mooar.

James Adams Woolson was born in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, 
December 22, 1829, and died in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Janu- 
ary 25, 1904. He was the older son of James Rix and Eda 
(Adams) Woolson, and grandson of Nathan Woolson, a prosper- 
ous farmer after the sturdy New England type, who died January 
24, 1800. 

Mr. Woolson came from a line of public spirited ancestors whose 
purpose in life was to do more for the world than simply procure a 
competency from it. During the closing years of the seventeenth 
century, one hundred young elm trees were taken from the farm of 
Nathan Woolson, his grandfather, and planted on Boston Common. 
The writer of this memoir remembers the pleasure enjoyed by Mr. 
Woolson as he called attention to the fact that his ancestral acres 
were the forest nursery from which the stately trees on our famous 
Common were taken. After completing the public school course, 
the young man selected the further life of a student, with the in- 
tention of taking the college course at Harvard. In accordance 
with that thought he fitted for college at tlie old Gates Academy in 
Marlboro'. The fond dream of his youth, however, was not to be 
realized. Circumstances beyond his control compelled him to 
abandon the thouGfht of enterinof colleofc, and he o^ave himself, for a 
few months, to the work of preparing himself for a commercial life. 

In 1846, Mr. Woolson was given a position as boy clerk in the 
store of Hon. Lee Claflin and his son William Claflin (later Gov- 
ernor Claflin) of Boston. From the moment he entered upon this 
employment he set himself to master the business in all its details, 
and applied himself with assiduity to whatever tasks were committed 
to him by the members of the firm. As a help to secure this culture, 
he became a member of the old Mercantile Library Association of 
Boston. He served this organization successfully in the offices of 
librarian, director, treasurer, vice-president and president. Mr. 
Woolson was, at the time of his death, a stockholder in the F. 
Brigham and Gregory Company. This company succeeded F. 
Brigham and Company, who were the direct successors of the orig- 
inal house established by Hon. Lee Claflin in the year 1815. 



MEMOIRS. Ixxxi 

Mr. Woolson was one of the incorporators of the Suffolk Sav- 
ings Bank of Boston ; a member of the firm of Loring, Tolman 
and Tupper, Bankers, and their predecessors. He held member- 
ship in the Eastern Yacht Club of Massachusetts, Cambridge, Colo- 
nial and Union Clubs. He was a director in the National Bank of 
Redemption, and previous to the consolidation, a director of the 
Shoe and Leather Bank, and also of the Revere Bank. He was 
vice-president of the Boston Five Cents Savings Bank, and a direc- 
tor of the First National Bank of Cambridge. He was a life mem- 
ber of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, elected in 
1884. In 1859, Mr. Woolson was married to Miss Annie Willis- 
ton Dickinson of Boston, and is survived by her and two daughters, 
Mrs. James L. Paine and Mrs. B. S. Hurlbut. 

Aside from his ability as a business man, the most distinguishing 
element of his character was his sacrificial devotion to his friends. 
Those were true and noble words, spoken recently by one who 
knew him well, "He was a great friend, and I do not believe that 
he had an enemy in the world." 

Sublime sentences have been written as tributes to friendship. 
This man's life spent itself as a living incarnation of human friend- 
ship. Never was he more himself than in his devotion to his friends. 
He knew how to bear a friend's infirmities. He looked upon the 
happiness of a friend as if it were his own, and felt for a friend in 
sorrow or distress to such a depth that his whole nature responded 
in helpfulness. 

In early boyhood Mr. Woolson was brought under the influence 
of the Christian Church, and in the youth and vigor of his man- 
hood he dedicated himself to the service of Christ. At the time of 
his death he was a member of the Harvard Street Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, Cambridge, and his religious life may be summed up 
in that comprehensive definition given by the old Hebrew prophet 
Micah : " What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and 
to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." 
By Rev. Edward M. Taylor, D.D. 

George Bruce Upton, A.M., second of the name, died in Mil- 
ton, Massachusetts, February 7, 1904. He was born in Nan- 
tucket, Massachusetts, July 15, 1829, and was the son of George 
Bruce and Ann Coffin (Hussey) Upton. He was a descendant, in 
the seventh generation, from John Upton who came to this country 
about the middle of the seventeenth century, settled in Salem Vil- 
lage (now Peabody), Massachusetts, and died in 1699. The line 
of descent from John Upton is fully given in a memoir of the first 
George Bruce Upton in the Register, vol. xxix, pages 1-12. 

y\nn Coffin Hussey was the daughter of Peter and Mary (Mooers) 



Ixxxii N. E. "historic genealogical society. 

Hussey. The Husseys were Quakers, but Peter Hussey was read 
out of meeting for marrying one of the world's people. Mrs. Up- 
ton was a woman of rare refinement and intelligence, but of a very 
retiring disposition. Owing to this and very delicate health, she 
was known intimately by few beyond her immediate family circle. 

George Bruce Upton was the oldest child, and "always showed a 
great sense of his responsibility towards his seven younger brothers 
and sisters. He was his mother's right hand during the unavoid- 
able absences of his father while in the Legislature." He gradu- 
ated from Harvard in 1849, and was then a few years in California. 
After that he was associated with his father in business in Boston, 
until the death of the latter in 1874, and a successful merchant till 
the end. 

Pie married, June 22, 1858, Mrs. Geraldine I. Rivers, daughter 
of Jonathan Russell. She died in March, 1885; and in 1890 he 
married Mrs. Alice (Henderson) Huntington. He had no chil- 
dren. Mr. Upton had a great love for foreign travel and foreign 
languages, and spent many winters in Europe. He was a resident 
member of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, elected 
in 1900. 

"A scholarly, gentle cultured man, developed in so many direc- 
tions that one wondered how he found time for it all, full of life, a 
man among men, a very child among children, sympathetic, chari- 
table in ways unostentatious but sure to reach the needy objects, a 
friend to whom one could confidently turn in sorrow or in trouble." 
By Rev. George M. Ada31s, D.D. 

Joseph Mason, A.M., was born in Northfield, Massachusetts, 
March 16, 1813, the son of Rev. Thomas Mason, a Unitarian clergy- 
man, who was graduated at Harvard College in 1796. His mother 
was Sophia Barnard of Sterling. He was sixth in descent from 
Robert Mason who came from England in 1630 and settled in Ded- 
ham, Massachusetts. During King Philip's war, in 1676, Thomas, 
son of Robert, and two sons of Thomas were killed by the Indiana 
at the time Medfield was attacked and burned. Ebenezer, a grand- 
son of Robert, then a child about seven years old, was the only male 
member of the Mason family remaining after the Indian war. Eb- 
enezer's son Thomas was the great-grandfather of Joseph Mason, 
the subject of this sketch. 

Mr. Mason obtained his early education at Northfield, and pre- 
pared to enter Harvard at the Northfield Academy. Ill health, 
however, obliged him to forego a university education, but he studied 
law under private teachers, graduated at Cambridge Law School in 
1836, and was admitted to the bar in 1837. He practised law for 
a while in Templeton, and removed to Worcester in 1847. In 1852 



MEMOIRS. IXXXIU 

he was appointed Clerk of the Courts of Worcester County, which 
position he held for twenty-five years. After his resignation, in 
1877, he resumed the practice of law and wrote "Mason's Practice 
in the Common Law Courts of the New England States," published 
in 1880, and " Mayon's Massachusetts Practice," published in 1883. 
He was master in chancery for Worcester County Courts, and at 
one time President of the Central National Bank of Worcester. 
Mr. Mason was not an active politician, although he always attended 
the caucuses. He was originally a whig, then a free soiler, and then 
a republican. He was on the school committee in Worcester, and 
was in the Legislature in 1885 and 1886. The last year the House 
paid him the compliment of allowing him to select his seat, before 
the usual drawing for places. 

Mr. Mason took a lively interest in the new Worcester city hall 
contest, and was influential in securing the location on the old Com- 
mon, where the old City Hall and the Old South Church once stood. 
He was a member of the Church of the Unity, having purchased a 
pew in that church, taking a deed of it, as was the custom at that 
time. This was about the year 1847, when the Rev. Dr. Edward 
Everett Hale was settled over the parish as its first minister. 

November 10, 1846, he married Sarah Rebecca Parker, of Shir- 
ley, Massachusetts. They had one son, Joseph Parker, born Sep- 
tember 15, 1848. After the death of his wife in May, 1895, he 
left Worcester and went to live with his son in Plainfield, New Jer- 
sey, but here he met with a double affliction in the loss of his only 
son, who died suddenly March 2, 1899, and a short time after, the 
death of his only grandchild, Parker Wright, a bright and promis- 
ing boy of about nineteen years. In 1900 he left Plainfield and 
went to live with relatives in Brookline, Massachusetts, where he 
died February 8, 1904, at the advanced age of nearly ninety-one 
years. Mr. Mason was a resident member of this Society, elected 
in 1885.

Albert Clifford Tufts, who became a member of the New- 
England Historic Genealogical Society in 1894, was born Septem- 
ber 11, 1864, in Somerville, Massachusetts, and died there, March 
19, 1904. He was the son of Nathan Tufts, Jr., and Mary Jane 
(Fitz) Tufts; he was grandson of Nathan Tufts, who formerly 
owned the " old Powder House " farm, and after whom the public 
park surrounding it was named ; and was grand-nephew of Charles 
Tufts the founder of Tufts College. He was descended from Peter 
Tufts who came from England previous to 1638 and settled at Mai- 
den, Massachusetts, where, at his death in 1700, he was the largest 
proprietor of land in the town. 



Ixxxiv N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

Mr. Tufts's line of descent was as follows : Peter' of Maiden, the 
immigrant, John,'' Peter,^ Nathan,^ Daniel,^ Nathan,^ Nathan, Jr.,' 
Albert Clifford.' Through his grandmother, Sally (Miller) Tufts, 
he was descended from one of the martyrs of the 19tli of April, 
1775, James Miller, minute man, who was slain on Prospect Hill 
in what is now Somerville, where, while harassing the main body 
of British troops in the street below, he with others was surprised 
by a flanking party of the enemy, and being urged by his associates 
to flee, gave the memorable answer, "I am too old to run," and 
died firing upon the foe. 

Albert Clifford Tufts received his education in the schools of 
Somerville, graduating from the High School, in 1883, after which 
he entered the grain business in the counting house of his father and 
brother, becoming a partner in the firm in 1887, after the death of 
his father, and continuing in this business until his own death. 
April 19, 1893, Mr. Tufts was married to Mary Belle Cotton of 
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, daughter of William Wallace and 
Anna (Moses) Cotton. Mrs. Tufts survives him with a son, Na- 
than, six years of age. 

Mr. Tufts, like his ancestors, was a man of business ability and 
strict integrity, and held many positions of responsibility. He was 
a director in the Bunker Hill National Bank, a member of the Bos- 
ton Chamber of Commerce, of the Merchants Club of Boston, and 
of the Somerville Historical Society, and a director in the Central 
Club Association of Somerville. In religion he was a Unitarian, 
being a member of the Standing Committee of the First Congre-

Mr. Tufts was a dignified yet agreeable gentleman, against whom 
none had ever occasion "to say aught in malice," but whom all 
respected, and in whose irreproachable life was exemplified the en- 
viable character of a long line of honored ancesters.

JoHJ^ Andrew Peters, LL.D., was born in Ellsworth, Maine, 
October 9, 1822. He was the second son of Andrew and Sally 
(Jordan) Peters, and was descended from Revolutionary ancestors. 
One of his forbears was a major in Clinton's Brigade at the battle 
of Long Island, 1776. His maternal grandfather, Melatiah Jor- 
dan, was one of the first men in Maine appointed to oflfice by Wash- 
ington — to be collector in the Frenchman's Bay district. His pa- 
ternal grandfather, John Peters, was a prominent land surveyor, 
and laid out many towns in Eastern Maine. His father was a ship- 
builder and lumberman, and was noted for his sterUng honesty and 
commanding appearance ; his mother, for her lively temperament, 
fine sense of humor and ready sympathy, qualities which were 
characteristic of her son. 



MEMOIRS. IXXXV 

John A. Peters was prepared for college at Gorham Academy, 
and entered Yale College in 1838. He took a high stand as scholar 
and leader. He was a classmate and life-long friend of Albert 
Mathews, of New York City, the writer and lawyer, and James 
Hammond Trumbull, of Hartford, Connecticut, naturalist and au- 
thor. He was a member of the Skull and Bones Society. After 
graduating with first honors, Mr. Peters entered the Harvard Law 
School, where he was one of the leaders of his class and was gradu- 
ated in 1844. Rutherford B. Hayes was one of his classmates. 
Senator George F. Hoar, for whom he was frequently mistaken 
by reason of their likeness, was also one of his contemporaries. 
He was admitted to the bar at Ellsworth the same year, but subse- 
quently removed to Bangor, where he lived until his death. He 
soon stood among the leaders of his profession in Maine, and won a 
personal popularity throughout the State such as few men in Maine 
have enjoyed. 

Originally a whig. Judge Peters became a republican during the 
Civil War. He served two terms in the Legislature, and was At- 
torney General of the State from 1864 to 1866. He entered Con- 
gress in 1866, and remained there for three terms, serving on the 
Judiciary and Library committees. He was a ready and able 
debater. He declined a reelection. His leadership in the House, 
commented on by Blaine in his "Twenty Years of Congress," led 
many to regret Judge Peters's withdrawal from politics, but his in- 
clinations were legal. In 1873 he was appointed Associate Justice 
of the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine, and in 1883 he succeeded 
John Appleton as Clrief Justice, which position he held until his 
voluntary retirement, January 1, 1900. He became a resident 
member of this Society in 1892. He died April 2, 1904. 

Judge Peters is remembered as the most beloved Judge in Maine, 
and as one of the brightest and most cultured legal minds of New 
England. In 1882, many of the leading lawyers of New England 
desired the President to appoint Judge Peters Associate Justice of 
the United States Supreme Court, but he was happiest in Maine, and 
as Chief Justice he rendered his State an unparalleled service. In 
legal learning he had few superiors, and in quickness to grasp points, 
no equal in the Maine bar. He tempered the dignity of his office 
with kindness and gentle wit. Judge Peters was well known also 
as a speaker. Some of his brilliant epigrams flashed from one end 
of the country to the other. In the Presidential campaign of 1864 
he said, " If McClellan can't take Richmond with Washington as a 
base, he can't take Washington with Richmond as a base." At 
Yale, Judge Peters was held in high honor and esteem, and was 
regarded as one of the best extempore speakers in the country. 
He was a devoted friend and supporter of the college, and his ap-

pearance at the alumni gatherings at Yale andBowdoin was a signal 
for applause. He rendered valuable service to Bovvdoin College as 
a member of its board of trustees. Colby College (1884), Bow- 
doin (1885), and Yale (1893) gave him the degree of LL.D., 
He received many other honors, but the greatest of all was the 
genuine love he enjoyed of the people of his State, such as was 
given to few public men of Maine. 

He married, September 2, 1846, Mary Ann Hathaway, of Ban- 
gor, who died in 1847, leaving an infant son, who also died, at the 
age of fourteen months. He was again married, to Fannie E. Rob- 
erts, and had two daughters by his second marriage. 

A fuller sketch of Judge Peters's life, with interesting incidents and 
anecdotes, may be found in "The Green Bag," Vol. VII. (1895), page 
156, written by General Charles Hamlin, Reporter of Decisions of the 
Maine Supreme Judicial Court.

Richard Anson Wheeler was born in Stonington, Connecti- 
cut, January 29, 1817, the only son of Richard and Mary (Hew- 
itt) Wheeler. On both the paternal and maternal sides, he descended 
from Thomas Wheeler, who came from England to Lynn, Massa- 
chusetts, in 1636, from Capt. John Gallup, who fell in the mem- 
orable Swamp Fight, from Thomas Stanton, the Interpreter General, 
and from Capt. George Denison, one of the most distinguished sol- 
diers in Connecticut. Judge Wheeler was educated in the common 
schools until he was seventeen years of age,, when he attended for 
three months a private school at Mystic, Connecticut. 

Besides holding less important offices, he represented the town in 
the General Assembly in 1851, was High Sheriff of New London 
County for twelve years. Judge of Probate for twenty-three years, 
and Justice of the Peace for forty years. Although never desiring 
to be admitted to the Bar, he acquired a thorough legal knowledge, 
which was of much value to him in the various offices in which he 
v/as placed. He wrote more than six hundred wills, no one of 
which was ever broken. He was the oldest member of the First 
Congregational Church of Stonington both in years and term of 
membership, and was clerk of the Church and one of the standing 
committee for sixty-six years. He was well versed in its history, as 
his book, " The History of the First Church of Stonington " shows, 
a volume of three hundred pages, published in 1875. He also 
wrote a historical sketch of the first three churches of New London 
County, and a historical sketch of Stonington and sixteen churches, 
published in the history of New London County. 

Besides various other historical addresses from time to time, he 
gave an address at the Palmer Reunion held at Stonington in 1881,

which was published, and in 1899 he delivered an address upon the 
early settlers of Stonington, at the unveiling of the monument to 
their memory at Wequetequock. He wrote a history of the Pequot 
Indians, published in pamphlet form, which he delivered before the 
Oolonial Society at New Haven, and the Rhode Island Historical 
Society at Providence. In 1900, after retirement from active pub- 
lic work, at the age of eighty years, he published his " History of 
the .Town of Stonington," including genealogies of eighty-seven 
different families. He was President of the Groton Monument As- 
sociation for three years, and for twelve years and up to the time of 
his death he was President of the Stonington Savings Bank. He 
was a thorough student, and acquired his great knowledge of gen- 
ealogical and historical matters by patient and painstaking effort. 
He was a member of the New-England Historic Genealogical So- 
ciety since 1869, life member and one of the vice-presidents of the 
Connecticut Historical Society, and member of many other histori- 
cal societies. 

Of his personal characteristics, we quote: "He was of grand 
and noble physique, unassuming in manner, of great purity of 
mind, of remarkable persistence and had a high standard of moral 
conduct. He was a charming conversationalist and possessed an 
inexhaustible fund of anecdotes. Having a friendly interest and 
love for mankind, he made friends easily and was esteemed and 
loved by all for his straight- for ward and Christ-like qualities. With 
the passing away of Judge Wheeler, departs the ' Grand Old Man ' 
of Stonington," 

Judge Wheeler was twice married, first to Miss Frances M. 
Avery of North Stonington, Connecticut, January 12, 1843 ; and 
second, to Miss Lucy A. Noyes of Stonington, November 5, 1856, 
who with three daughters, Mrs. Henry Tyler, Mrs. Seth Noyes 
Williams, and Miss Grace Denison Wheeler, survives him. He 
died April 6, 1904.

Edward White Clark was born in Providence, Rhode- Island, 
January 28, 1828, and died in Philadelphia, April 9, 1904, after a 
brief illness. He was the eldest son of Enoch White Clark (1802- 
1856) who, February 21, 1826, married Sarah Crawford Dodge 
(1806-1878) , and was the seventh in descent from Captain William 
Clark, who landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts, from the ship 
"Mary and John" in 1630. He traced his descent as follows: 
William' (1609-1690), John^ (1651-1704), John^" (1679-1768),

hunter) Sill. They had five sons and one daughter. He is sur- 
vived by his widow, all of his children, and twelve grandchildren. 

In 1837, Enoch White Clark moved his family from Providence 
to Philadelphia, and with his brother-in-law, Edward Dodge, 
founded the banking house of E. W. Clark and Company. Edward 
White Clark attended the public school, graduating from the Cen- 
tral High School at the age of sixteen. He immediately entered 
the banking house as a clerk, thus beginning a connection that lasted 
for sixty years. In 1849, at the age of twenty-one, he was admit- 
ted to the firm as a partner. In 1867 he was elected President of 
the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company, and in 1877 was ap- 
pointed Receiver of the Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre Coal Company. 
The affairs of these two corporations demanded so much of his 
time that he found it necessary to retire temporarily from the bank- 
ing business. 

In 1882 he brought his labors with the coal companies to a suc- 
cessful ending, and re-entered the firm of E. W. Clark and Company, 
remaining its head from that time until his death. He was one of 
the founders of the Fidelity Trust Company of Philadelphia, and 
was a member of the first board of Directors elected in 1866. He 
was closely identified with the organization of the First National 
Bank of Philadelphia, and was for many years a director. He was 
one of the earliest members of the Union League. 

In 1852 and 1853, Mr. Clark took an extended trip abroad, 
spending some time in Egypt and Palestine. This visit aroused an 
interest in Assyriology and Egyptology that constantly increased, 
and when Dr. John P. Peters, many years later, suggested to him 
the sending of an expedition for research in Babylonia, he imme- 
diately offered his aid. He became treasurer of the fund raised for 
the purpose, and for sixteen years gave this and other expeditions 
his personal care and advice. It was to him more than any other 
that the great success of the explorations was due. In November, 
1902, he endowed, in conjunction with his brother, Clarence H. 
Clark, the Chair of Babylonian Research in the University of Penn- 
sylvania, now held by Dr. Herman V. Hilprecht. He was one of 
the group, that in 1887 organized the Museum of Archieology and 
Palseontology of the University of Pennsylvania, and he always 
contributed liberally towards its support. He was a resident mem- 
ber of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, elected 
March 2, 1904. 

Mr. Clark took a great interest in the negro. It was largely 
through his aid and advice that the Berean Manual Training and 
Industrial School in Philadelphia was founded and made a success ; 
and for many years he was a helper and adviser of Mr. Armstrong 
of the Hampton School, and Mr. Booker T. Washington of Tus- 
kegee. In religion he was a Unitarian. In 1865 he gathered 



MEMOIRS. Ixxxix 

some of his friends together in his home and organized the First 
Unitarian Church of Germantown. He always took an active in- 
terest in the Church and Sunday School, and even in his busiest 
times he never neglected the preparation of his Sunday School les- 
son. 

It was, however, in his liome that Mr. Clark's true character ap- 
peared, and here his loss will be most severely felt. Surrounded 
by a large family and a wide circle of friends, there his genial and 
gentle nature, warm heart and deep sympathy found true expres- 
sion ; always striving to promote the happiness of those around 
him, listening carefully to all tales of trouble and distress which 
were presented, turning away no deserving case unassisted, giving 
counsel and advice to all who sought it ; his home life was well 
rounded and complete.

Rev. Emanuel Yogel Gerhart, D.D., LL.D., son of Rev. 
Isaac and Sara Vogel Gerhart, was born at Freeburg, Snyder 
County, Pennsylvania, July 13, 1817. His great-grandfather was 
an Alsatian by birth, and came to America in 1730, settling in 
Bucks County, Pennsylvania. His father was a minister in the 
Reformed Church. His mother, of French descent, was a native 
of Northampton County, Pennsylvania, but was reared in Phila- 
delphia. 

The early education of Emanuel was under the care of his father 
until 1833, when he entered the classical institution of the Re- 
formed Church at York, Pennsylvania. In 1836 the institution 
was removed to Mercersburg, and chartered as Marshall College. 
He then became a member of the first junior class, and graduated 
in 1838. After this, he entered the Theological Seminary at Mer- 
cersburg, graduating in 1842. He began his work in .the ministry 
as pastor of the Grind-stone Hill Congregation, near Chambers- 
burg. While at this place, he accepted a call from a charge at 
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. During the summer of 1849 he was 
sent as missionary to the First Reformed Church in Cincinnati, 
Ohio, where he worked among the foreign-born Germans of that 
city. He made numerous missionary journeys on horseback through 
parts of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Wisconsin, organizing new 
congregations. 

In 1851 he became President of Heidelberg College at Tiffin, 
Ohio, and at the same time teacher of Systematic Theology in the 
Theological Seminary at that place. In this position he worked 
with success until he received the call from Franklin and Marshall 
College, at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to fill the President's Chair. 
At the same time he taught in the department of Mental and Moral

Philosophy. In 1868 the Synod of the Reformed Church elected 
him professor of Systematic Theology in the Theological Seminary 
of which he was an alumnus. He held this position up to the day 
of his death. 

Dr. Gerhart took an active part in the work of the Church through 
her Synods, Classes and Boards. He served as President of the 
Ohio Synod, the Eastern Synod and General Synod. He was also 
a member of the Board of Trustees of the College. After the death 
of its first president. Dr. Gerhart was elected president of the Clio- 
sophic Society of Lancaster. He continued to preside over this 
literary and social organization up to the time of his death. He 
was corresponding member of the New-England Historic Genea- 
logical Society, elected in 1855. From 1857 to 1861 he served as 
one of the editors of the Mercersburg Review. To this Review, 
and its successor, the Reformed Church Review, he contributed 
more than sixty articles, and he also contributed important artides 
to other reviews and to Encyclopaedias. Among his published works 
are "The Inner Life of Dr. Ranch," "A Monograph of the Re- 
formed Church," "Junior Heidelberg Catechism," and "The Insti- 
tutes of the Christian Religion," in two volumes. 

Dr. Gerhart was married three times. His first marriage was 
with Miss Eliza Rickenbaugh, at Hagerstown. They were blessed 
with eight children, of whom three survive their father: Col. Wil- 
liam R., of Lancaster ; Rev. Robert Leighton, D.D., of Lewisburg, 
and Miss Virginia, of Lancaster. Mrs. Gerhart died in January, 
1864. In August, 1865, Dr. Gerhart was married to Mrs. Mary 
M. Hunter, widow of Frederick S. Plunter of Reading, Pennsyl- 
vania. She died the following year, leaving a daughter, Nora 
Catherine, who died in 1887. In 1875 he married Miss Lucia D. 
Cobb, eldest daughter of Rev. Ashabel Cobb, of the Congregational 
Church at New Bedford, Massachusetts, who survives him. Dr. 
Gerhart died ia Lancaster, May 6, 1904.

Miss Mary Elizabeth Barrett was born in Portland, Maine, 
April 29, 1829, and died in Portland, May 16, 1904. She was the 
daughter of Charles Edwards and Elizabeth Mary (Baker) Barrett, 
and was descended, in the eighth generation, from James Barrett, 
who was born in England about 1615, was in Chal-lestown, Massa- 
chusetts, in 1643, and died in Maiden, August 16, 1672. Miss 
Barrett was a sister of George Potter Barrett who was a member of 
this Society until his death, in 1896, and the line of descent from 
the immigrant ancestor is given in a sketch of Mr. .Barrett in the 
Proceedings of 1897, pages 93, 94. 

Miss Barrett came of a family whose name appears in the cata- 



MEMOIRS. Xci 

loguee of the principal New England colleges, and she naturally 
received what in her youth was considered a good education, hardly 
as generous a one as would now be held essential. A quiet, retir- 
ing gentlewoman who grew up when there was no talk of woman's 
rights and wrongs, of a deeply religious nature, — finding time from 
her domestic life to devote to the charities that interested her, of 
most excellent judgment, she lived out her quiet, unselfish, unob- 
trusive days in the little city in which she was born and passed on. 

The only public charity in which she was especially interested was 
the Female Orphan Asylum of Portland. For more than forty 
years, and until her death, she was one of its Board of Managers, 
and during all that period gave to it unsparingly her time and atten- 
tion. Such a life may be in a very high degree lovely and useful, 
but there is little in it to chronicle for public notice. 

Miss Barrett was a life member of this Society, elected in 1900.

Elisha Slade Converse, a life member of this Society since 
June, 1870, was born in Needham, Massachusetts, July 28, 1820, 
and died in Maiden, Massachusetts, June 5, 1904. He was the 
youngest child of Elisha and Betsey (Wheaton) Converse, of puritan 
and revolutionary stock. The immigrant ancestor was Edward 
Converse, who came to Salem with John Winthrop, in June, 1630. 
Edward Converse was a rigid puritan, an early settler of that part 
of Charlestown which soon became the town of Woburn. The line 
of descent is as follows : Edward' (1590-1663), SamueP (1637- 
1 669), Samuel,' a first settler of Thompson Parish, Killingly, Con- 
necticut (1662 ), Edward^ (1696-1784), Jonathan^ (1723- 

1761), Jonathan^ (1760-1845), Elisha' (1786-1854), Elisha 
Slade" (1820-1904). 

Through his mother, Betsey Wheaton, Mr. Converse was des- 
cended from a family of sturdy Welsh Baptists, whose ancestor, 
Robert Wheaton, was among the earliest settlers of Rehoboth and 
one of the founders there of the first Baptist church within the pres- 
ent territory of Massachusetts. During the infancy of Mr. Converse, 
his parents removed to Woodstock, Connecticut, and later to the 
neighboring town of Thompson. Here he received such early edu- 
cation as a country school of that day could give ; and at the age of 
twelve years he worked for a while in a cotton mill. Soon after, 
he was sent to Boston, wheee his elder brother, James Wheaton 
Converse, was established in business. Here he entered the McLean 
School, and soon after went to live with his sister, Maria, whose 
husband, Aaron Butler, was engaged in a general mercantile busi- 
ness at South Boston. For the next three years he divided his time 
between the school and the business of the shop. ' When sixteen

years of age, he returned to Woodstock, to which phice his parents 
had returned from Thompson, and entered upon farm work, varied 
by attendance at the town school. But we soon find him making 
an engagement of two years with a clothier in Thompson. He be- 
came a partner before the term of service expired ; and three years 
later, being then twenty- two years of age, he became, by purchase, 
the sole proprietor of the business. 

In 1844 he removed to Boston, where he engaged with Benjamin 
Poland in the wholesale shoe and leather business. To this was 
soon added the grinding of dyewoods, spices, and other articles. 
Mr. Converse's residence was in Stoneham from 1847 until 1850, 
when he went to the neighboring town of Maiden, which became 
his permanent home. In 1853 he was elected treasurer of the Mai- 
den Manufacturing Company, which was incorporated as the Boston 
Rubber Shoe Company in May, 1855. At this time, Mr. Converse 
began his long and remarkably successful career as a rubber shoe 
manufacturer. Giving up his active interest in his former business, 
he devoted himself entirely to the development of the factory and 
its interests. Under his management, the company attained a high 
measure of success, and its products have gained a world-wide repu- 
tation. It is now a constituent part of the United States Rubber 
Company, of which Mr. Converse was a director. 

He also became widely known in the financial and commercial 
worlds. In 1856 he became president of the bank now known as 
the First National Bank of Maiden, which position he retained un- 
til his death ; and a long list of like institutions and others of a 
charitable, religious, or political character attests to a life that was 
full of devotion to that which was on the side of prosperity and pro- 
gress. In 1878 and 1879, he represented Maiden in the House of 
Representatives; and in 1880 he was elected to the State Senate. 
He became the first mayor of Maiden, in 1882. In religion he was 
a Baptist, in which he was faithful to the instincts of his Welsh 
blood, having become united with the church while a boy in Thomp- 
son ; but he was without a blemisli of sectarianism, knowing po 
limitations of creed, color, or station in his good will and charity. 

As a philanthropist and public benefactor, Mr. Converse was 
widely known. While his public gifts were large and many, those 
which, with a modesty that was part of his nature, were concealed, 
carried life and comfort to a degree that only those who were near- 
est him will ever know. His gifts to the Maiden Public Library 
amounted to more than five hundred thousand dollars. This bene- 
faction is a memorial of his eldest son, whose sudden and violent 
death in 1863 was the great sorrow which cast an abiding cloud 
over an otherwise serene and happy life. 

While in business at Thompson, Mr. Converse married, Septem-

son, whose death has been noticed, Mr. and Mrs. Converse had one 
son and two daughters who are now living and are married.

Jamks Henry Beal, a life member of this Society, elected in 
1870, died at his summer home in Nahant, June 25, 1904. He 
was born in Boston, February 20, 1823, in the then fashionable 
north end of the city. He received a business education at the 
Chauncy Hall School, and immediately upon his graduation began 
his active business life. He was clerk in a wholesale furniture estab- 
lishment in Haymarket square, where he at once showed aptitude 
and shrewdness, and in a comparatively short time was admitted to 
a partnership, under the firm name of Allen and Beal. 

But it was in matters of finance that Mr. Beal early exhibited 
extraordinary ability. He was elected a director of the old Granite 
Bank in 1851, and six years later, during the panic year of 1857, 
he was requested to assume the presidency in place of Hon. Alpheus 
Hardy, who had declined a reelection. It was a time to try the 
mettle of men in financial affairs, but Mr. Beal proved to the vete- 
rans on the street that he was destined to be a leader. In 1864 
the bank changed its name to the Second National Bank, and for 
more than thirty years Mr. Beal served as its president, retiring in 
1888. 

During the Civil War, Mr. Beal gave marked evidence of his 
ability as a financier. It was largely through his efforts, seconded 
by those of the late Franklin Haven, William Gray and J. Amory 
Davis, that the Secretary of the Treasury was enabled to raise a 
hundred and fifty million dollars for the prosecution of the war, and 
he was invited by the Secretary to assist in the negotiations with 
the banks of Boston, New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere. At a 
meeting of the bankers held at that time, it is related of him that he 
stood up before the conservatives, who were inclined to oppose 
lending so vast a sum to the United States Government, and re- 
marked in his cool and dispassionate manner : " We are the repre- 
sentatives of the national banks of the United States ; if our country 
is to go the banks had better go too." 

In his busy life in the world of finance Mr. Beal found time to 
serve his city and the Commonwealth. He represented Ward Eight 
in the Common Council in 1857 and 1858, and at a later period 



XCIV N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

was a member of tlie Legislature. He also was connected with 
many corporations. He was president of the Bigelow Carpet Com- 
pany and of the Clinton Wire Works ; was trustee of many estates, 
and at one time was a director of the Old Colony liailroad Com- 
pany. In church affairs he was prominent, being one of the pillars 
of the Arlington Street Church, and treasurer and one of the strong 
supporters of the little church at Nahant, near his summer home. 
It is at this resort that Mr. Beal will be specially missed. He was 
one of the most conspicuous figures on tho- streets, as it was his 
daily custom to take long walks about the village, and the regular 
and temporary residents knew him, many of them intimately: 

Mr. Beal leaves a widow, his second wife, who was Louisa, 
daughter of Dr. Zabdiel Boylston Adams of Boston, who was great- 
great-grandson of Henry Adams, the founder of the Adams famil}'' 
of Quincy. There are seven children, namely, Thomas Prince, 
Helen, who is the wife of John Mason Little, Ida, Judith, James 
H., Boylston Adams, and William Fields. 

Samuel Parkman Blake, A.B., was born in Boston, November 
10, 1835, and died there June 30, 1904, in his seventieth year. He 
was the third child and only son of Samuel Parkman and Ann 
Boylston (Cunningham) Blake, and was closely related to many of 
the prominent families of Boston, where his ancestors, upon both his 
father's and mother's side, had lived for many generations. 

He graduated from Harvard College in 1855, in a class that con- 
tained many distinguished members, among whom were Alexander 
Agassiz, General Francis Channing Barlow, Phillips Brooks, Theo- 
dore Lyman and Henry Lee HIgginson. At College, as in after 
life, his manliness, his strict integrity and his genial manners made 
him a favorite with all, and obtained for him membership in such 
select organizations as the Hasty Pudding and Porcellian Clubs. 
After graduation, he became a clerk in the office of Messrs. Kettell, 
Collins and Company of Boston, commission merchants engaged In 
the West India trade, where he remained for four years, and while 
in their emplo}^ made two trips for them as supercargo to the West 
Indies and South America. In June, 1859, he removed to Phila- 
delphia, where he became a partner of Charles Amory, Jr., of Bos- 
ton, in a commission business of yarns and dry goods. In June, 
1865, this work was increased by the acquisition of the business of

On October 14, 1868, Mr. Blake was married to Miss Mary Lee 
HIgginson, daughter of George HIgginson of Boston. In 1872 he 
gave up business in Philadelphia and returned to Boston, where he

several years past being associated with Charles E. Loud under the 
firm name of Blake and Loud. He was a director of tlie Boston 
Real Estate Excliange, and one of its Vice-Presidents, and was for 
many years a member of the Board of Managers of the Home for 
Aged Women, on Revere Street, in Boston, rendering most efficient 
service upon its committees. 

He was a member of the Union and St. Botolph Clubs in Boston ; 
and he became a member of this Society in February, 1904, only a 
few months before his death, but he attended at least one of its 
meetiniis in that short time, and showed an interest in its affairs 
that would have developed had his life been spared. Besides his 
Boston residence, he had for many years a beautiful summer home 
in the town of Canton, but for the past ten years he had an estate 
at Manchester-by-the-Sea. His domestic life was fortunate and 
happy, though he had the sorrow of losing, in*1887, a son eleven 
years old, and in 1900 he was saddened by the death of his daugh- 
ter Theresa, who was killed by being tlirown from a horse. 

He is survived by his widow, a daughter, Miss Marian Lee Blake, 
and a son, Robert Parkman Blake. He was a particularly lovable 
man, and his genial manners and upright character made him be- 
loved by both business and social friends.

Charles Louis Flint, a life member admitted in 1885, died at 
Brookline, Massachusetts, June 9, 1904, aged forty-three years. 
He was born in Boston, March 9, 1861, son of Charles L. and 
Ellen Elizabeth (Leland) Flint. His fsither, who was also a life 
member of this Society, was from 1853 to 1878 the secretary of the 
Massachusetts State Board of Agriculture. The father was one of 
the founders of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and also of 
the Massachusetts Agricultural College, in Amherst, being president 
of the latter for one year. 

The son studied a year in the Institute of Technology, and then 
entered the Agricultural College, from which he was graduated in 
1881. He was adjutant of the college battalion in the institution 
at Amherst during his senior year. His career in college was highly 
creditable, and in his after life he helped the institution by his in- 
fluence and his purse. 

After leaving college, he formed a partnership in Boston with 
Charles S. Dole, as a stockbroker, but for the last fifteen years of 
his life he was not engaged in active business. In 1896, he was 
appointed a trustee of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, and 
held this office at the close of his life. He had previously estab- 
lished oratorical prizes for the college. He was fond of the study 
of languages, and knew several, including the Chinese, being able,

besides reading and writing it, to speak it fluently. He was also 
musical, and belonged to several orchestral clubs. 

He was a descendant, in the eighth generation, of Thomas Flint 
of Salem, the line being: Thomas,' Thomas,^ Samuel,^ John," 
Jeremiah,* Jeremiah,^ Charles Louis,' Charles Louis'* ; and his 
mother belonged to the Leland family of Grafton, Massachusetts, 
her parents being Joseph and Charlotte (Merriam) Leland. He 
was married, in 1886, to Rebecca M. Burbank, of Boston, by whom 
he had a daughter, born in 1888. 

Frank Moore, A.M., a son of Jacob B. Moore of Concord, 
New Hampshire, where he was born December 17, 1828, died at 
Waverley, Massachusetts, August 10, 1904. He was the author of 
many historical and literary works, among which, perhaps the best 
known, were " The Rebellion Record " (1861-8), in eleven volumes, 
and a " Diary of the American Revolution " (1860), in two volumes. 
He was chosen a corresponding member of the New-England His- 
toric Genealogical Society in 1860 ; and he received the honorary 
degree of Master of Arts from Dartmouth College in 1867. 

His widow, Mrs. Laura M. Moore, daughter of the late Hon. 
John Bailey of Dorchester, died in Boston, November 11, 1904.

Nathan Matthews was born at Yarmouth, Massachusetts, Sep- 
tember 15, 1814. He was the son of James and Sarah (Hallett) 
Matthews, and was fifth in descent from James Matthews the immi- 
grant. The forebears of the immigrant are not known with certainty, 
but he was probably the son of Edward Matthews of Tewkesbury, 
Gloucestershire, England. He resided a short time at Charlestown, 
where he was living in 1634, removing to Yarmouth in 1639, and 
held various offices until his death in January, 1685-86. 

In 1833, at the age of nineteen, Mr. Matthews left his native 
town, came to Boston, and began a varied business career which 
lasted seventy years. His first venture proved disastrous and led 
to his failure in 1837, when he compromised with his creditors for 
fifty cents on a dollar. Fourteen years later, he paid his debts in 
full, — an instance of business integrity which elicited much praise. 
After his failure in 1837, Mr. Matthews made a short tour in the 
West, visiting Chicago and St. Louis, but returned to Boston and 
entered the commission business. A little later he went into part- 
nership with his twin-brother Edward, the father of Brander 
Matthews. This lasted until about 1852, when Mr. Matthews 
abandoned mercantile business and began what proved to be very 
extensive operations in.real estate. 

As President of the Winnisimmet Company, he bought and im- 



MEMOIRS. XCvil 

proved large tracts of land in Chelsea ; and, between 1860 and 1870, 
as President of the Boston Water Power Company, lie developed 
the Back Bay district of Boston, then mostly under water. At the 
time of his death it was said : " To-day the people who walk along 
Beacon Street, Marlborough Street, Commonwealth Avenue, and 
all the thoroughfares above Arlington Street that run into these 
great avenues, can see the property that existed very clearly forty 
years ago in the mind's eye of Nathan Matthews." In 1886, Mr. 
Matthews went to Europe, and again in 1888, when he remained 
eighteen months ; and after his return he gradually retired from 
active business. He died at his summer home in Bar Harbor, 
Maine, August 29, 1904. He became a life member of this So- 
ciety in 1870. 

Mr. Matthews possessed a vigorous mind, a strong will, deep 
affections, and marked individuality. Besides his gifts of Matthews 
Hall to Harvard College, of a buflding to the Yarmouth Free Li- 
brary, and of a building in Denver to the Bishop of Colorado, he 
contributed freely to church and charitable organizations ; and to 
his "unanticipated, nobly disinterested, and timely aid — not as a 
loan, but as a boon freely bestowed, joined to the generous impulses 
of others," was due the publication of the second volume of Freder- 
ick Freeman's History of Cape Cod. 

Mr. Matthews was married, September 9, 1851, to Albertine, 
daughter of William Jenkins and Ann (Southworth) Bunker of 
New York. He is survived by his widow and by five children, 
Nathan, Jr. (formerly Mayor of Boston), Caroline, Sarah Hallett 
(now Sister Paula of the St. Margaret Sisterhood), Albert, and 
Elisabeth (married to Henry LaBarre Jayne of Philadelpl)ia). A 
daughter, Alice Southworth, born May 4, 1866, died in infancy; 
while a son. Constant Southworth, born September 25, 1869, died 
July 30, 1893.

Jacob Warren Manning, a resident member, elected in 1884, 
died in Reading, Massachusetts, September 16, 1904. He was 
born at Bedford, New Hampshire, February 20, 1826. His pa- 
rents were Solomon and Mary (Fletcher) Manning, and he was of 
the eighth generation from William Manning of Cambridge, Mas- 
sachusetts, the line being William,' William,"^ Samuel,^ William,* 
Jacob,* Jacob, ^ Solomon,' and Jacob Warren.® His branch of 
the Manning family migrated from Cambridge to Billerica, and 
thence to Chelmsford. 

He remained on his father's farm until the age of twenty-one, 
when he went to Chelmsford, to be employed in farm, fruit and 
nursery work. During his first year he saved one hundred and fifty 



XCVIU N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

dollars of his wa^^es. He went next to Reading for a while, and 
then to Chelsea, Massachusetts, where he became superintendent of 
the nursery of S. W. Cole, a well known authority on fruit cul- 
ture, and author of the '' American Fruit Book." In 1849 he be- 
came gardener 'for John J. May of Dorchester, and later, from 
1852 to 1854, for Rev. Nathaniel Frothingham, D.D., of Burling- 
ton, Massachusetts. He was next the gardener for Levi A. Dow- 
ley of Brattleboro,' Vermont. About this time, he settled in Read- 
ing, Massachusetts, and established the flourishing business which 
was afterwards his until his death, and which gave him great fame 
among the men of his own calling throughout the country. 

He did much to introduce many varieties of standard fruit in his 
business career of fifty or more years, and also introduced many 
trees to sections where they were hitherto unknown. It is an old 
saying that whosoever planteth a tree is a benefactor to his country, 
and so Mr. Manning, at the end of his long life, had the satisfac- 
tion of knowing that he had, from a small beginning, built up a 
business which, from its magnitude, had few rivals. He had made 
many a green plant or green bough to grow where nothing of the 
kind had ever grown before, improving the beauty of the landscape, 
and furnishing a welcome shade or shelter to the present and future 
generations of men. He belonged to many horticultural societies. 

Mr. Manning was married, December 25, 1858, to Lydia Brooks 
Chandler, who survived him, and by whom he had five children, all 
well known in the branches of their father's business, such as land- 
scape gardening, botany and nursery work. Their names are 
Warren H., William S., Jacob W., Abiel C, and Benjamin F. 
Manning. 

Henry Brewer Metcalf was born in Boston, April 2, 1829, 
the^son of Caleb and Mary (Dyer) Metcalf. He became a resident 
member of the Society in March, 1895. His paternal ancestors 
were Caleb,' born in Wrentham, July 22, 1777, Thomas,^ Pela- 
tiah,^ Michael,^ Eleazer,' Michael,^ Michael.* The family was 
from Tettersford, Co. Norfolk. His maternal ancestors embrace 
the Dyer, Ray, Mann, Colburn, Fisher and Fairbanks families. 
Mr,. Metcalf attended the public schools of Boston, including the 
High School, and in September, 1844, became an apprentice with 
Hobart and Wilkins, merchants and manufacturers. From this 
time forward Mr. Metcalf was engaged in business. The stress- of 
hard times, and the Boston fire of 1872, laid heavily upon his af- 
fairs, but his clear mind and rugged manhood never were moved. 
He knew of prosperity and of disaster. 

He was married. May 4, 1854, to Elizabeth, daughter of Rich- 
ard and Lydia (Bowman) Freeman. To them were born Caroline,

in 1855, who died in young womanhood, and Arthur Hobart, in 
1857, who died unmarried in 1900. Mrs. Metcalf died a few years 
since. Mr. Metcalf was a deeply religious man. His lifelong in- 
terests were with the Universalist Church, which he honored with 
his service in the humble places of the local parish and Sunday 
School, and in tlie highest councils of the Church. Though denied 
an academic training, he was foremost in promoting the interests of 
Tufts College, and during the last years of his life was President of 
its Board of Trustees. Tufts College conferred upon him, in 1886, 
the honorary degree of A.M. 

In 1867 he was active in organizing the Boston Button Com- 
pany, whose fortunes suffered in the fire of 1872. He soon 
removed from Boston to Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where he be- 
came commercial manager and afterwards President of the Paw- 
tucket Hair Cloth Company. The entire community at once felt 
his public spirit and genuine civic interest. He was aggressive in 
municipal and humane affairs, foremost for the introduction of the 
public water system, and as a member of the Rhode Island Senate, 
and of a State Commission, was enabled to better the conditions of 
the homes and living of the people. For long years he was iden- 
tified with the Prohibition party, and in 1900 was its candidate for 
the Vice-Presidency, and at the time of his decease was candidate 
for Governor of Rhode Island. 

Mr. Metcalf died at Pawtucket, October 8, 1904. The Outlook 
spoke editorially of his death as " bringing to an end an uplifting 
and unselfish life." He was of a large and generous mould, and 
his contribution of service in behalf of every beneficent cause was 
after the pattern of the man. He was a business man, and had 
dealings with large bodies of employees, but he was a citizen and a 
real lover of. mankind, and zealously labored for their finest Avel- 
fare. Grateful homage was paid his memory by the city of Paw- 
tucket on the occasion of his funeral, and at Mount Auburn a large 
company of old-time associates gathered to pay reverent tribute to 
his memory.

Miss Susan Storer Stimpson, daughter of Frederick Henry and 
Sarah Matilda (Fiske) Stimpson, was born in Boston, May 17, 
1839, and died in that city October 15, 1904. Her ancestry for 
several generations was as follows : John* Stimpson, of Milton, 
Massachusetts, born 1676; Receiiipense W.,* of Boston, married 
Susanna Blodget, 1759; Charles^ (1766-1840), of Petersburg, 
Virginia, married Eleanor Hale; Frederick Henry^ (1805-1872), 
of Portland and Boston. 

Miss Stimpson received a public school education, which laid the 



C N. E. HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

foundation of a love for study and extensive reading which she 
pursued through her life. Domestic cares were very early laid 
upon her. As the second in a family of nine children, she was 
called upon to assume large responsibilities. Her nature was a 
deeply religious one, showing itself in unremitting charities and 
duties in connection with her church, and making itself felt in her 
wonderfully powerful influence upon all with whom she came in 
contact. 

It is rare to find such strength of personality, combined with 
such gentleness and sweetness of manner, making her always a 
power on which all could rely. Pier interests were wide-spread, 
and she was an intelligent and extensive reader on many subjects, 
keeping herself well informed regarding all matters of the day. 
She was especially interested in the study of genealogical and local 
history. Her connection with the New-England Historic Genea- 
logical Society (in 1899) gave her great pleasure and satisfaction. 

In Miss Stimpson, one saw a really heroic character, softened by 
her beautiful Christian faith. She carried most quietly her own 
cares, and was ever ready and glad to help others bear their bur- 
dens. She is a loss to her city, to her church and to all who 
counted themselves her friends. "In quietness and confidence" 
was her strength.

Mary B. Young, and of her son, Bradford M. C. Durfee, and 
supervised the erection of the Bradford M. C. Durfee High School 
building, in accordance with the request of his sister, who gave the 
building to the city in memory of her son. Mr. Brayton presided 
at the dedication of this edifice in 1887, presenting upon this occa- 
sion a check of fifty thousand dollars to keep the building in repair,

formerly a Trustee of Amherst College, and in 1898 he became a 
Trustee of Brown University.

prominently identified with the First Congregational Society of Fall 
River, and was not confined in his affiliations to denominational 
lines. He was a devoted friend of the church of his fathers, and a 
liberal founder of the Brayton Memorial Methodist Church of Fall 
River, erected in 1895 in honor of John Brayton, his grandfather. 
He took a lively interest in every movement having for its aim the 
social betterment of the community, and manifested the true spirit 
of friendship and brotherly love in the common and special relation- 
ships of life. Mr. Brayton ever cherished a marked interest in the 
early history of New England. He was a member of the New- 
England Historic Genealogical Society, elected in 1894, of the

tury, his first publication having appeared in 1849. During that 
period, the titles of fifty-five separa^tely printed works bore his name

(1894). Dr. De Costa was the editor of numerous works, includ- 
ing a new edition of Bishop White's "Memoirs of the Protestant 
Episcopal Church" (1881), and at the time of his death was con- 
tributing weekly to the New York Freemen s Journal, chapters of 
a work entitled " Looking Both Ways, or the Doctrine of the In- 
carnation as Viewed by Belief and Unbelief in the Protestant Epis- 
copal Communion."

died 1676. The parentage of James' lias not been ascertained. 

The subject of tiiis sketch was twice married; first, January 29, 
1861, to Lucia, daughter of Resolved and Anna Louisa Water- 
man, who died in 1867, and by whom he had two children, Arthur 
and Lucian W., who are both living and botli are Episcopal clergy- 
men ; and he married second, October 6, 1869, Emily Prisciila, 
daughter of Ex-Governor James Y. and Emily (Brown) Smith, 
who survives him, as does also their only child, Emily Prisciila 
Smith Rogers. He graduated from Brown University in 1855, 
studied law with the late Thomas A. Jenckes, of Providence, and 
in tlie Harvard Law School, and was admitted to the Bar in 1858. 
In June, 1861, he was elected a Justice of the Providence police 
court, which office he held but a short time, for on the 27th of the 
followino; Au^just he was commissioned Lieutenant in the Third 
Rhode Island Infantry (afterwards Third Rhode Island Heavy Artil- 
lery) . By successive promotions he became Colonel of the Eleventh 
Rhode Island Infantry, in 1862. He was made Brevet Brigadier 
General, U. S. V., March 13, 1865, "for gallant and meritorious 
service during the war." 

With the exception of twelve years (from 1873 to 1885), when 
he was extensively engaged in cotton manufacturing with his father- 
in-law, Ex-Gov. Smith, he was either practising his profession or 
filling offices of honor and trust. He represented his city in the 
Common Council at various times, and his State in the House of 
Representatives, and as Attorney General for three successive 
terms. In May, 1891, he was elevated to the Supreme Bench, 
which position he held until February, 1903, when, by advice of 
his physician, he resigned. The degree of LL.D. was conferred 
upon him by Trinity College in 1896. 

Not\viths^anding his many public and professional duties, he was 
an untiring student, especially of history and genealogy. He joined 
the Rhode Island Historical Society in 1866, and was its president 
from 1889 to 1895. He urged, for many years, the printing of the 
old town records of Providence, and was one of the original mem- 
bers of the commission appointed for the purpose. His interest in 
the work never flagged, and he lived to see seventeen volumes of 
" The Early Records of the Town of Providence " printed. He be- 
came a member of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society 
in 1891, but for years previous he had been an earnest worker in 
the field of genealogy. He carefully search.ed the town, probate, 
land and church records and graveyards of Newport and Bristol 
counties in Rhode Island, as well as those of many towns in Mas- 
sachusetts, collecting valuable data concerning his own and collat- 
eral lines. He also visited people all over the 'State, gathering

from them and their Bible records information which otherwise 
would have been lost. 

Among the societies of which he was a member, may be men- 
tioned the Masonic, the American Antiquarian, the Sons of the 
Revolution, the Cincinnati, and the Military Order of the Loyal 
Legion. He was author of " Private' Libraries of Providence " 
(1«78), "The Journal of Lieut. James F. Iladden, chief of Eng- 
lish Artillery during the Burgoyne campaign" (1884), "Mary 
Dyer, the Quaker Martyr" (1896), and of numerous magazine ar- 
ticles and addresses. 

Judge llogers was an able lawyer, a valiant soldier, a wise coun- 
sellor, a pure-hearted, honest man. 
By James Swift Hooeus, A.B. 

Enoch Stafford Johnson died at his home in Lynn, November 
20, 1904. He was the son of Otis and Virginia (Taylor) John- 
son of Lynn, and was born in Savannah, Georgia, April 12, 1828. 
His ancestry in the direct male line can be traced through his 
father, Otis Johnson' (1802-1870), Enoch'^ (1761-1815), Pich- 
ard^ (1731-1765), "Capt."SamueP (1708-1771), Pichard' (1674- 
1754) SamueP (1640-1723), to Pichard' (1612-1666), who came 
over from England in 1630 with Sir Pichard Saltonstall. Several of 
his ancestors took part in King Philip's War, among them being 
Lieut. Samuel Johnson, Capt. Benjamin Newhall, Joseph Pich- 
ardson, Capt. James Fowle, and Lieut. James Fowle. 

Mr. Johnson's mother was Virginia Taylor of Georgia, whose 
father, Reuben, went from Virginia. Through his mother he was 
descended, in the fourth generation, from Col. Samuel Stafford of 
North Carolina, who, it is said, was with the army at Braddock's 
defeat. 

Mr. Johnson was educated at the old Lynn Academy, and on 
leaving that institution entered tlie employ of Messrs. Jewett and 
Tebbitts, dry goods merchants on Milk Street, Boston. In 1849 
he began business as partner with his father in Savannah, Georgia, 
in the wholesale boot and shoe business. In 1859 he moved to 
Lynn, and began the sole leather business on Pearl Street, Boston, 
where he remained until the great fire of 1872.. Pemoving his 
business to Lynn for a year, he returned to Boston and established 
himself on High and Congress Streets. In 1886 he closed his busi- 
ness in Boston and moved again to Lynn, where he remained in 
active business until his death. 

His long commercial career of over fifty years was marked by the 
strictest integrity and righteous dealing, he having enjoyed from 
first to last the fullest confidence and esteem of all with whom he 
had dealings, ancl tin"Ough all tlie vicissitudes of fires, wars and

panics he met every financial obligation promptly. Mr. Johnson 
was a genial Christian gentleman, and possessed a keen sense of 
justice and Immor, always having a fund of anecdotes to give point 
to his remarks. He was fond of antiquarian and genealogical re- 
search, and became a life member of the New-England Historic 
Genealogical Society in 1889. He was also a member of the So- 
ciety of Colonial Wars and of the Lynn Historical Society. He 
owned a fine miscellaneous library, and was a diligent reader, hav- 
ing always been a close student of English history. 

In religion Mr. Johnson was a staunch and loyal churchman, 
and for nearly forty years was identified with the parish of St. 
Stephen's, Lynn, liaving been a vestryman of that parish since 
1867. Indeed, his last public act on earth was attendance at the 
Sunday morning service ; and returning to his home, he passed 
suddenly away, only a few minutes after he entered his house. It 
seemed, indeed, like a translation — "He was not, for God took 
him." 

August 19, 1857, Mr. Johnson married Anna Louisa, daughter 
of the late Hon. Andrews Breed of Lynn, who, with two children, 
Susan L. and Otis S., and two grandchildren, survives him.

invited) . $60,000 

Library fixtures, furniture, etc. etc .... 30,000 
Land, 5,000 square feet, purchased, but not yet paid for 30,000 $120,000 
For addition to permanent fund, for purchase and bind- 
ing of books, and increased expenses of a new 

building for lighting, heating, cleaning, insurance, 

salaries, etc. (calling for $3,000 additional income 

per annum) . . . . . . . 75,000

ENGLISH ANCESTRY. 

A great difficulty of American genealogy has hitherto been 
the identification of the settler in America, with the presumed 
emigrant from England; in some 6000 cases this obstacle has 
been overcome, and sufficient information can be given to prove 
parentage, place of birth or at least county.
