Vol. XXXII. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1901. No. 1. 


This Society mourns the loss of a venerable associate, whose 
services from its first organization until the day of his death, 
have been invaluable; and whose personality was ever welcome 
and helpful. Samuel Smith Purple, M.D., the eldest son of 
Dea. Lyman Smith Purple and his wife Minerva (second daugh- 
ter of Dr. James) Sheffield, was born in Lebanon, Madison Co., 
N. Y., on the 24th of June, 1822. He was seventh in descent from 
Edward and Hannah (Ackley) Purple, who settled in Haddam, 
Conn., 1674; and, more remotely, of Christopher Purple (1580 to 
1605), who emigrated from the Co. Essex, England*. His father, 
Dea. Purple, was a shoemaker and tanner. 

The subject of our sketch received his early education, be- 
tween the ages of five to sixteen years, at the district schooi of 
his native village, and— in some autobiographical memoranda 
which he has left— remarks, that during this period of his life, no 
remarkable development of character appeared, except "such a 
strong propensity to continued fishing and hunting," that it came 
to be an accepted opinion in the family, that " Sam would never 
be good for anything else." From thirteen to sixteen years, his 
winters were spent at school, and his summers in assisting his 
father in the shoemaker's shop, or in the tannery. In the spring 
of 1836, the family removed to Earlville, Chenangp ; Co., N. Y , 
where until, his death in May, 1839, the father kept a boot and 
shoe store. After this event, young Samuel, as the eldest son, 
succeeded to the business and superintendence of the shop, a 
part of the time still working on the bench, and thus supporting 
his mother and two younger brothers, for several years. 

But, while faithful to the duties and responsibilities thus 
Providentially imposed upon him, he secretly nurtured an ambi- 
tion for some higher calling than that of being a follower of St. 
Crispin; he longed to be a doctor. In this, there might, perhaps, 
have been some "heredity," for his maternal grandfather and an 
uncle, as well as a more remote relative, were physicians. Be 
that as it may, however, the boy made up his mind to study 
medicine, and in the summer of 184 1, commenced his preparatory 
reading under the guidance of David Ransom, M.D., the leading 
physician of the village. It is strongly indicative of the natural 
reticence of the man, that, for some time, this fact was entirely 

2 Samuel Smith Purple, M.D. [Jan., 

unknown to his family. It first revealed itself, when, one day, at 
the family meal, he mildly contested a statement made by his 
grandfather, Dr. Sheffield, who was then visiting them. His 
mother warmly rebuked him, saying: "Why, Samuel, what do 
you know about medicine?" He quietly replied: "Mother, I 
have been studying medicine for some time ! " He also used to 
relate, in later life, the scene which ensued when his good mother 
first discovered, inside of an old box-sofa, which had stood for a 
long time in his chamber, a skeleton which he had obtained (per- 
haps a loan from his preceptor), to study from, and the indignation 
with which she ordered it out of the house. His new studies, he 
says in his notes, interfered but little with his trade, as he formed 
the habit of rising at 4 A. M., and studying until 7 o'clock, when 
he repaired to the shop; and, while engaged at his work during 
the day, took every opportunity of reviewing his morning studies. 
He adds, " I never allowed myself to read in the evening; " and 
he admits that sometimes, he found that his studies had some- 
what interfered with his regular business. 

The condition of his father's estate proved to be such that it 
required over three years diligent labor by this faithful son, to 
free it from incumbrance, so as to secure a small village home- 
stead for his mother and brothers. At last, however, it was 
accomplished,, and he was free to follow the bent of his incli- 
nations. In the early part of 1842, his preceptor secured from the 
Censors of the State Medical Society, the privilege of a free 
course of lectures at the Geneva Medical College; and, in order 
to procure the means of defraying his personal expenses while 
attending lectures, he worked during June, July, August and 
September, at farm work. On the 1st of October of that year, 
with barely enough money, in his pocket to live upon during the 
ensuing four months, he left home for Geneva. In February, 
1843, he returned home and took up his trade, as before, pursuing 
his morning readings and his mental "reviews" during work 
hours. Evidently, the boy was in earnest, and so, in the ensuing 
summer, Dr. W. D. Purple, a distant relative, and a member of 
the Board of Censors of the State Medical Society, secured for 
him the privilege of the beneficiary foundation of the Medical 
Department of the University of the City of New York — i. e., free 
tickets for a full course of lectures in that institution, upon the 
payment merely of the $25 matriculation fee. The summer of 
1843 was spent as the previous one had been; and his second 
course of lectures, thus hardly earned, and attended through cir- 
cumstances of self-denial and strictest economy, were absorbed 
and assimilated with the greatest delight by this earnest student, 
who, in March, 1844, received from the venerable Prof. Valentine 
Mott, the distinguished head of one of the most brilliant medical 
faculties which ever graced an American institution, the diploma 
entitling him to the title, rights and immunities of a Doctor of 

After graduation, a few weeks spent at home in Earlville, gave 
him time to decide the momentous question which confronts 
every budding physician — where to settle in practice ? His choice 

KfOL] Samuel Smith Purple, M.D. <> 

fell upon New York City, and for that place he set out, in the 
early days of May, 1844, with, as he says, "$25 and a very poor 
wardrobe." As economy was nececssary, he made an arrangement 
with a canalboat captain, by which he "worked his passage " on 
the Erie Canal, to Utica. His journey from that point to this 
city left him on arrival here with but $17.50 in hand— and then 
the struggle began. In the few notes which he has left he says- 
'The struggles and trials through which I passed during the first 
three or four years, will ever remain a secret in my bosom 
If it had not been for one or two warm friends, I could not have 
succeeded in the task I had undertaken. It was not until five 
years had elapsed that I was enabled to pay my expenses and 
liquidate the obligations necessarily incurred up to that time " 
And the memory of some of those early friends, corroborates his 
statement But he had indomitable grit, and not a moment was 
wasted. His Art was his mistress, and he wooed her insistently 
" It is probable," says Dr. Stephen Smith, who was at this time a 
student with him, "that he was induced to settle in this city by 
the Rev. William W. Everts, pastor of the Laight Street Baptist 
Church, who was his former townsman in Earlville, and to whom 
as well as his worthy wife, the young doctor was in many ways 
indebted, in these trying days. 

" He soon became connected with the New York Dispensary 
the oldest and largest dispensary in the city, and remained one 
of its physicians from 1846-1849; and was attached to the New 
York Lying-in- Asylum (with which he had been connected dur- 
ing his student days), as district physician. He located in Hudson 
Street (No. 183) near Varick, and rapidly acquired a practice in 
that vicinity. Though his progress was slow in securing a better 
class of families (as is that of physicians who begin their pro- 
fessional lives m New York without the prestige of wealth and 
the aid of a large circle of helpful friends), yet his devotion to his 
patients, his success in their treatment, and his kindly gentle 
manner won for him, in time, a lucrative business. During- this 
early period he became acquainted with Prof. Charles A Lee 
editor of the New York Journal of Medicine, who also held pro- 
fessorships m the Medical College at Pittsfield, Mass., and in the 
Medical College at Geneva, N. Y. These duties which required 
Prof Lee to spend much time out of the city, led him to select 
Dr. Purple as an assistant editor. In 1848, Prof. Lee, owing- to 
the pressure of other duties, resigned the editorship of the Journal 
and Dr. Purple became his successor. He continued in that 
position until 1857, when he retired to devote himself entirely to 
practice. During the period of his management of the Journal 
it became the leading medical periodical of this country " 

In 1846 also, he was elected a member of the New York 
Pathological Society; in 1847, became one of the constituent 
members of the New York Academy of Medicine. Concerning his 
connection with this institution, another old professional friend, 
Dr. Ellsworth Eliot says: "No one did more to promote the pros- 
perity of the Academy than Dr. Purple. Of its now famous 
library, he was the founder [by a donation of 4,000 volumes] and 

A Samuel Smith Purple, M.D. [Jan., 

to it he gave books and pamphlets, many of them of great rarity 
and value, by the thousands. At his death, also, the Academy 
library became the recipient of an immense and perfectly unique 
collection of American medical magazine literature from the 
earliest times in this country — which he had with wonderful perse- 
verance and diligence gathered together — the special pastime of 
his life. In recognition of his valuable services, making him a 
benefactor, and confering upon him every other honor from the 
lowest to the highest, the Academy voted to erect a tablet in one 
of its halls to him." Of this institution, Dr. Purple was Vice- 
President in 1872, and, after three years' services as such, was 
elected President in 1875; and again re-elected in 1877. 

He held the position of Ward Physician during the Cholera 
Epidemic of 1849; in 1852; became a constituent member of the 
Medical Society of the State of New York; in 1853, was chosen a 
corresponding member of the Epidemiological Society of London; 
from 1867-187 1, was President of the Alumni Association of the 
Medical Department of the University, City of New York; and 
in 1862, was an Examining Surgeon in the New York State Drafts. 
He was also a physician in several of our charitable institutions; 
for many years a Trustee of the New York Veterinary College; 
and a Life Member of the Society for the Relief of Widows and 
Orphans of Medical Men. 

"Though he never gained renown," says Dr. Eliot, "as a con- 
tributor to Scientific Medicine, his record is that of one who 
served the medical profession and the public most faithfully and 
usefully. . . . To advance the interests of the medical pro- 
fession, and to promote its honor, the efforts of Dr. Purple were 
unceasing. His integrity, urbanity, intelligence, and obliging 
disposition, gave him a highly reputable standing among many 
who resorted to him for information and assistance. Dr. Purple 
was eminently conservative. He looked upon those who were 
instrumental in doing away with the "Code of Ethics" of the 
medical profession, with as little favor as the High Calvinists 
regard the so-called Higher Criticism." 

From the old-fashioned house, and quiet surroundings in 
Hudson street, where he had so long lived with his mother and 
brothers (for he never married), he removed, about 1865 — follow- 
ing, as was necessary, the upward trend of the city's population — 
to No. $(> West 2 2d street, where amid his beloved books, still 
practicing, though in more leisurely fashion than in the old 
"down-town" days; caring for, and cared for by, the family of 
his deceased brother, he passed his later years until death came 
to him, September 29th, 1900, in his 79th year. 

As a physician, Dr. Purple was, as has already been said, con- 
servative; he held to the best and loftiest traditions of the pro- 
fession; in the sick-room his dignity, his quietness of manner and 
movement; his voice modulated in low tones — and, above all, the 
touch of sympathy which brings comfort amid distress and 
anxiety — were characteristic of the man. Benevolence shone in 
his face and lightened the woes of many whose names still stand 
and always will stand on the debit side of his ledgers until before

the Great White Throne in Heaven, "every man's account shall 
be rendered." 

While but a boy of twelve or thirteen, Dr. Purple joined the 
Baptist Church in Earlville. When he settled in this city he 
joined, of course, the Laight Street Baptist Church, of which his 
old friend, Rev. Mr. Everts was pastor. Some dissension after- 
wards arose in this church, which disrupted its congregation, and 
which, though he maintained his position, and came out of it 
unscathed, yet so affected him that he never afterwards joined 
any church organization. 

And now we must say a word concerning him as a life mem- 
ber of our Society. Dr. Purple was not one of our constituent 
members, at the meeting of February 27 th, 1869; but his name 
stands upon our records as the first of the five members added at 
the succeeding meeting of March 7th, and he was one of the 
eight who signed the Certificate of Incorporation, on the 16th day 
of the same month. And, from that time to this, it would be 
difficult to find upon our roll of membership, one who has been 
more intimately and continuously connected than he, with the 
work and interests of the Society. He was a Trustee from 1869- 
1900, inclusive; Second Vice-President from 1888-1893; First 
Vice-President from 1893-1900; Treasurer, 1869-1877; a member 
of our Publication Committee from 1872 until his death; Editor 
of the Record from 1874-1886. 

In all these relations he rendered us most faithful and loving 
service. Especially, in connection with the work of the Publica- 
tion Committee he was our main-stay, and it was due, we think, 
to his suggestion, that the Society received from the late S. Whit- 
ney Phoenix, Esq., the means for copying and publishing the 
Baptismal and Marriage Records of the First Reformed Dutch 
Church of this city — a most invaluable treasury of material for the 
New York genealogist— and to the accuracy of which, in printed 
form, Dr. Purple (who was a most inexorable proof-reader) de- 
voted his untiring personal oversight, from the beginning of its 
appearance in our quarterly, down to the very last week of his 
life. He was also engaged, with his brother Edwin R. Purple, 
in the preparation of other New York Dutch family genealogies, 
some of which were published in our Record, and some in private 
form: Genealogical Memorials of William Bradford, the Printer, 
Quarto, pp. 8, 1873. Contributions to the History of Ancient 
Families of New Amsterdam and New York. By Edwin R. 
Purple, with a Biographical Sketch of the Author; and Additions, 
and Emendations to the Work. By Samuel S. Purple, M.D. 
Quarto, pp. 138, 1881. A Memoir of the Life and Writings of Hon. 
Teunis G. Bergen {with Pedigree), 1881. By Samuel S. Purple, 
M.D. Quarto, pp. 8. A Brief Memoir of Abram Du Bois, M.D. 
{with Pedigree.) By Samuel S. Purple, M.D. Quarto, pp. 8, 1893. 

Among his papers since his death, have been found extensive 
manuscript collections for the genealogies of the Purple, Sheffield, 
Close, Ly?ich, Fones and Gardner families. Dr. Purple from an 
early date in his career, began the collecting of works on Ameri- 
can local history and genealogy, at a time when there were com- 

6 The Fields of Stockbridge and New York. [Jan., 

paratively few collectors in these lines, and had acquired, even as 
far back as 1870, a library of such books which ranked as one of 
the completest in the State. This library of Americana will soon 
be put upon the market at auction. Many of these books are 
very rare. A number of years ago he secured a volume contain- 
ing as many as five of the earliest books printed in New York by 
William Bradford, this city's first printer. Notable among the 
five rarities are Keith's Truth Advanced, New York, 1694, and 
Maule's New England's Persecutors Mauled, no place or date, but 
printed in New York in 1697. His judgment was very keen, and 
his "luck" very noticeable; his patience and intimate knowledge 
of books often made him the happy owner of a rare volume, which 
another man might have not found. 

Among his effects, also, was found a great collection of material, 
both in manuscript notes and printed form, rare portraits, etc., 
which the Doctor had brought together in preparation for a 
History of the New York Academy of Medicine — and which he 
had hoped to make his magnum opus. It is to be hoped that his 
professional brethren will see to it that this design is ultimately 
carried out to completion. 

Singular modesty and reticence as to himself, his labors and 
his plans, concealed from his friends and associates, both in the 
profession and in our Society, the value and importance of his 
life-work; it is only now, when death has removed him from the 
spheres of his activity, that we fully appreciate the value of what 
he has done. We remember his quiet ways, his few, but always 
helpful words, his gentle measured speech, and the interest that 
spoke so plainly from his eyes, as we "took sweet council to- 
gether" in our Society and Committee meetings; and we are 
thankful to have been so long permitted the companionship and 
friendship of so true a man, and so wise a counsellor. 




By L. Hasbrouck von Sahler, Genealogist. 

The English ancestor, Hubertus de la Feld, went over to 
England from Normandy, with William the Conqueror, in 1066. 
He was of the family of the Counts de la Feld, who lived in the 
Chateau de la Feld, at Colmar, on the Rhine, in Alsace, who traced 
their ancestry to the sixth century, and who had lived there since 
that time. One of the family entertained in the eleventh century, 
Pope Leo the Ninth, and his court, on their way to the consecration 
of the Cathedral of Strasburg, of which the family were benefactors, 

1 90 1.] The Fields of Stockbridge and New York. J 

and several are resting there in the chantries that they founded. 
In the third year of William the Conqueror, Hubertus de la Feld 
held lands in Lancashire, undoubtedly granted for military ser- 
vices, and in the twelfth year of Henry the First, John de la 
Feld owned lands in the same county. Up to the time of Richard 
the Second, the de la Felds were numerous, but after his reign 
the name began to be changed. Owing to the feeling resulting 
from the wars with France, the prefixes were either compounded, 
with the surname Delafeld-Delafield, or left off, as Feld-Field. 
The first of the family in America was Zachariah Field, a son of 
John Field, and grandson of John Field the noted astronomer, 
who was the first to introduce the Copernican system into Eng- 
land. Zachariah Field was born at the old home at Ardsley, in 
Yorkshire, about 1600, and came to this country about 1632, ar- 
riving at Boston. He first lived at Dorchester, but remained 
only a few years. As early as 1639, he removed through the 
wilderness to Hartford, becoming one of the first settlers on 
the Connecticut river, and acquiring large tracts of land, por- 
tions of which are now in the center of the city. His home was 
on Sentinel Hill. Owing to the dissentions that arose in the 
church after the death, in 1647, of the Rev. Thomas Hooker, a 
number of the settlers purchased in 1658, from the Monotuck 
Indians, a territory about five miles square, north of Mount 
Holyoke, and during the next two years sixty proprietors, and 
their families, took possession. Over forty settled at Hadley, 
and thirteen in that part of Hadley now Hatfield, and at North- 
ampton. Zachariah Field settled at the latter place, probably 
in the first year of the settlement. In January, 1661, he and five 
others were appointed a committee "to lay out a tract of land 
on the west side of the Connecticut river for house lots." This 
was at Hatfield, and he received a grant of land, and removed 
there, where he died in 1666, leaving the homestead to his eldest 
son, Zachariah Field, Junior, who married Sarah Webb, daughter 
of John Webb, of Northampton, and after the birth of their three 
sons they removed to Deerfield. Shortly after their settlement 
occurred the Indian massacre of 1675, one of the most awful of 
that period, and consequently the surviving settlers fled to 
Northampton, and other places, and not until 1782 did Zach- 
ariah, Junior, and his family, return. In 1696, the second son, 
Ebenezer, removed to that part of Guilford, now called Madison, 
on Long Island Sound. Again in 1704, a band of French and 
Indians attacked Deerfield, and burned the town, and the in- 
habitants were murdered and taken captive. At that time one of 
the children of John, son of Zachariah, Junior, was killed, and his 
wife and two other children were taken captive to Canada. The 
wife and son were soon rescued, but the daughter was kept, and as 
she grew up became so infatuated with the Indians that she mar- 
ried a chief. In after years she visited her relatives, but preferred 
her adopted influences. Ebenezer married Mary Dudley, and their 
eldest son, David, married, first Mary Bishop, second, Catherine 
Bishop, third Abigail Stone, a widow. The eldest child by the 
third wife, and the youngest of his sons, Timothy, was born 

8 The Fields of Stockbridge and New York. [Jan., 

March 12, 1744, and inherited the homestead. He was prominent 
and respected in the town, and was active in the Revolution. In 
1776 he was appointed sergeant major of the Seventh Connecticut 
regiment, and in 1781, he was appointed lieutenant of a company 
for coast defense, and on the death of its captain, received that 
commission. He married Anna Dudley, daughter of David 
Dudley, descended from the ancient and honorable Dudley family 
of England. 

Their second son, Rev. David Dudley Field, D.D., was born, 
May 20, 1781, at North Madison, and was prepared for college by 
the Rev. Dr. Elliott of Madison. Entering Yale in 1798, he 
was graduated with honor in 1802. He studied theology with 
the Rev. Dr. Backus, of Somers, and was licensed by the asso- 
ciation of New Haven East in 1803. At Somers he met his future 
wife, Submit Dickinson, daughter of Captain Noah Dickinson, 
who had served in the French and Revolutionary wars, and a 
descendant of Thomas Dickinson, who came from England, and 
settled at Rowley, Massachusetts, in 1643. They were married 
October 31, 1803. As soon as Mr. Field was licensed to preach 
he conducted services for a few weeks at Somers, and was urged 
to become pastor, but he also received invitations to several 
places and finally decided on Haddam, Connecticut, and remained 
there fourteen years, when he was dismissed at his own request. 
He then connected himself with the old missionary society of 
Connecticut, and was sent to the new settlements on the southern 
shore of Lake Ontario, and on the banks of the Oswego river, 
where he remained five months. When he returned home he 
passed through Stockbridge, and as he arrived on Saturday night, 
he was asked to preach in the Congregational meeting house the 
next day, as the pastor, the Rev. Stephen West, whose pastorate 
continued for sixty years, was beyond active service. The people 
were so pleased with his abilities that they urged him to stay the 
following Sunday, and the next, when he felt that he must return 
home. Soon he received an urgent call to become the pastor, 
which he accepted in the same year, 18 19. He remained there 
nearly eighteen years, when a division arose in his former parish 
of Haddam, and he was asked to return to them, and try to unite 
the two factions. At his request he was dismissed from Stock- 
bridge, and re-installed at Haddam, in 1837. Williams College 
conferred the degree of Doctor of Divinity that year. After 
seven years, as the parish was too large, it was divided, and he 
took charge of the new church at Higganum, two miles north of 
the original church, and he remained there seven years. In 1848 
he went, with his son (Justice) Stephen J. Field, to England, 
spending several months in London, and travelled in France and 
Belgium. At the request of his children, in 185 1, when he was 
seventy, he returned to Stockbridge, to spend his remaining years 
in less activity. He was especially interested in historical re- 
searches, and was at one time vice-president of the Connecticut His- 
torical Society, and a corresponding member of the Massachusetts 
and Pennsylvania historical societies. In 1819, he published a 
history of Middlesex County, Connecticut, and in 1829 was pub- 

l 9 oi.] The Fields of Stockbridge and New York. 9 

lished the history of Berkshire County, which he, assisted by 
many of the neighboring ministers, wrote, and which he edited. 
A historical address delivered at the second centennial of Middle- 
town, Connecticut, grew into a book of several hundred pages, 
and he was also interested in the genealogical element of history, 
for he published the Brainerd Genealogy. In his youth he es- 
pecially attracted the admiration of the Rev. Dr. Benjamin Trum- 
bull of North Haven, the historian of Connecticut, who antici- 
pated that he would be his associate or successor, but the urgent 
call from Stockbridge came before his plans were formed. He 
was very painstaking in his ministerial work, both in the theo- 
logical and parochial parts. Several of his discourses were pub- 
lished. . 

The ten children of Dr. Field and Submit Dickinson were: 
David Dudley, the distinguished lawyer, born 1805; Emilia Ann, 
married Rev. Josiah Brewer, a missionary in the East; Timothy 
Beals, an officer in the navy, who died young at sea; Matthew 
Dickinson, a manufacturer and civil engineer; Jonathan Edwards, 
a lawyer, who finally settled and remained during his life at 
Stockbridge; Stephen Johnson (first), died young; Stephen John- 
son (second), Justice of the United States Supreme Court; Cyrus 
West, the father of the Atlantic telegraph; Rev. Henry Martyn 
Field, D.D., long associated with the New York Evangelist, and a 
well-known traveller and author, and Mary Elizabeth, married 
Joseph Frederick Stone. 

The eldest son, David Dudley Field, was born at Haddam, 
February 13, 1805. His first instruction was from the common 
school, but when he was nine he commenced, under his father's 
guidance, to study Latin, Greek and mathematics. When he was 
fourteen, his father removed to Stockbridge, where he attended the 
academies of that place and Lenox, and at sixteen he entered 
Williams College, and was graduated in 1825. At once he began 
the study of law, in the office of Harmanus Bleecker, at Albany, 
and later entered the office of Henry and Robert Sedgwick, in 
New York city. In 1828 he was admitted to the bar of New York 
State, as attorney and solicitor, and in 1830 as counsellor, and 
soon gained first rank in his profession. He found the practice 
of law, which was under English influences, very complicated, 
slow and expensive, and so immediately began the careful study 
of and vigorous influence which penetrated his whole career, and 
added greatly to his honor for legal reforms His first essay 
on the subject was published in 1839. In 1847 the New York 
legislature appointed him one of a commission to reform the 
legal practice of the state, and the results of the two years' labor 
were contained in two codes of procedure, civil and criminal. A 
large portion of the civil code was adopted by twenty-seven states 
and territories, and was the basis of the legal reform, established 
by the judicature acts of England, and the practice of several 
of the British colonies, including India. In 1857 the New York 
legislature appointed him the head of a new commission to codify 
the entire laws of the state, and in 1865 they reported a civil, 
penal and political code. The work of the two commissions de- 

IO The Fields of Stockbridge and New York. [Jan., 

volved principally on Mr. Field, and covered the general laws of 
the United States, common and statute. The states of California 
and North and South Dakota were the only ones to adopt the laws 
in full. New York accepted the code of criminal procedure and 
the penal code, while the civil code has been twice passed by the 
legislature but has been defeated by the governor. In 1861 he 
was a member of the peace conference at Washington. In 1867 
he brought a proposition for an international code before the 
British Association of Social Science, and this led to his preparing 
a work on the subject, including the principle of arbitration be- 
tween nations, and called the "Outlines of an International Code," 
although it was a very complete treatise. It attracted widespread 
attention in Europe, and was translated into French and Italian. 
In 1873 he was one of the founders of an international association, 
to reform and codify the laws of nations, with the special pur- 
pose of arbitration instead of war. He was elected, in 1877, to 
the House of Representatives. In 1890 he presided at the great 
peace convention in London. In 1884 he published a col- 
lection of his speeches and arguments before the United States 
Supreme Court, and miscellaneous papers — a book of decided 
interest. In 1893 he read a paper, prepared by request, on 
American Progress in Jurisprudence and Law Reform, connected 
with the Columbian Exposition at Chicago. This was his last 
important public appearance, and I am fortunate in possessing an 
autograph copy of the paper, which he presented to my father, 
J. Hasbrouck von Sahler. Mr. Field was a man of great height 
and splendid presence, capable, broad and cultivated mind, 
courtly and gracious manners, and distinguished legal career, 
with many honors. Like all men, especially public men, he had 
his detractors, but that he did beyond human knowledge for his 
countrymen and others, by his almost life-long and active advo- 
cacy of legal reforms, must be credited to him. Although Mr. 
Field was in his old age and I in my boyhood when we became 
cordial friends, his manner was always most considerate, and I 
shall continue to hold our conversations, and his letters, in appre- 
ciation. Mr. Field had by his first wife, Jane Lucinda Hopkins, 
sister of Mrs. Mary Hopkins Goodrich, founder of the Laurel 
Hill Society, and a descendant of the Rev. John Sergeant, mis- 
sionary to the Stockbridge Indians, two children, Dudley Field, 
who married Miss Laura Belden, and died without issue, and 
Jeanie Lucinda, who married Sir Anthony Musgrave of England, 
and who became the mother of Mr. Field's only grandchildren. 
"Eden Hill," Mr. Field's country place, at Stockbridge on Field 
hill, was one of the finest estates in the Berkshire hills, and 
not far from the mansion, is still standing the ruins of the old 
Sergeant homestead, built by the missionary in 1737, and for 
which he had much veneration, saying that it should never be 
removed during his lifetime. He suggested and wished me to 
write a magazine article about the same — "Memories of the 
Homestead of John Sergeant, Missionary to the Stockbridge In- 
dians," which would include mention not alone of the Sergeants 
and the Indians, but many of the early families and noted visitors, 

Igoi.] The Fields of Stockbridge and New York. II 

and I had started the article at the time of Mr. Field's death, but 
have never completed it. On the site of the mission house, near 
the later Congregational Church, Mr. Field built a stone chimes- 
tower as a memorial of the mission, and gave a set of chimes, as 
a tribute from his grandchildren to their ancestor Sergeant, and 
in his will he provided for a chimes-ringer. Mr. Field traveled 
extensively abroad, receiving many pleasing attentions, and on 
his return from his last trip, in the spring of 1894, he took a severe 
cold, which resulted in his death on the the thirteenth of April, 
and he was laid to rest in the Stockbridge cemetery. 

I will also mention briefly two other brothers. 

Stephen Johnson Field was born July 11, 18 15, at Haddam, 
and when he was thirteen went to the far east with his sister, and 
her husband, the Rev. Mr. Brewer, a missionary. On his return, 
in the fall of 1832, he entered Williams College, and was gradu- 
ated in 1837, with the highest honors of his class. He studied 
law with his brother, David Dudley Field, and on his admission 
to the bar, a partnership was formed, which continued until 
the spring of 1848, when he went abroad for a year's traveling, 
and on his return, in the fall of 1849, he settled in California, 
where he held many public honors, the last being the office of 
chief justice of the state, and at the time of his death, in 1899, 
he was one of the associate justices of the United States Supreme 

Cyrus West Field, was born November 30, 1 819, at Stockbridge 
and went to the common schools and academy there. As his am- 
bition was to become a merchant, at fifteen he went to New York, 
and became a clerk for A. T. Stewart. At twenty-one he was es- 
tablished as a wholesale paper merchant, to which business he 
devoted himself with the exception of a trip abroad, for about 
twelve years, when he desired to retire from business, but the 
wishes of his junior partners were considered instead. At this 
time he traveled extensively in South America, where his com- 
panion was F. E. Church, N. A., the artist. In 1854 Mr. Field 
first thought of the Atlantic telegraph, which made him famous, 
but its history is too long to detail in this place. Undoubtedly 
the guiding hand of his brother, David Dudley, was of great 
assistance, although full credit must be given to Mr. Field, and 
the prominent men associated with him. He received many 
medals, the thanks of Congress, and other honors at home and 
abroad. Subsequently he was engaged in other large enterprises, 
among which was the construction of the elevated railroad in 
New York city. He died July 12, 1892. 

The Field ancestry is interesting to trace through the past 
centuries, as it has produced many men of especial note, whose 
influences have been far spreading, but in this sketch I have been 
obliged to confine myself to a very few and to treat them briefly. 
The family are now represeuted in Stockbridge by the Rev. Dr.

26 Onondaga County Records — 1790. [Jan., 


During 1790 the military claims were given definite location. 
The completion by the survey office of the state survey of the 
Military Tract, was at once followed in July, 1790, by the 
allotment of lands to the holders of the soldiers' claims and 
land patents were issued by the state to the names of the 
soldiers entitled to recognition. The transfer of claims at 
once increased, and the discovery by claim-buyers, that many 
ex-soldiers had duplicated their sales, brought the custom of 
annexing to transfers an affidavit of no prior sale. Begin- 
ning with July of this year, the transfers begin to state 
specifically the land conveyed, described by lot-number and 
name of township. 

Ailing, Ichabod; late matross Art. Regt., transfers for 22 Spanish

4. Isaac' Corey {John 1 ), of Southampton and Hashamomack, 
d. 8 Mch., 1702. His father, John Corey, Sr., gave him a deed of 
most of his possessions, on 6 July, 1680. {Southold Town Records, 

I., 115) 

Isaac was rated at Southampton in 1683, on ^148, 3 shillings, 
and 4</. In 1686, as an inhabitant of that Town, he drew lot No. 50 
of the Acobogue meadows, in connection with Henry Ludlam. 
He afterwards removed to the Town of Southold, where he 
owned over a hundred acres in 1695.

Letters of Administration on his estate were issued to his 
widow, Sarah, on 21 May, 1702. (Pelletreau's Early Long Island 

Sarah's maiden name was probably Ludlam, or Linde, but 
could hardly have been Conkling as some suppose. Her marriage 
to Isaac Corey in 1682, is recorded in the Mss. Southold Town 
Records. The original entry began " Ludle, n and has apparently 
been rewritten "Lindley," at some later time. 

It does not appear that Lindley was a Long Island name at 
that date, while the fact that Isaac Corey was appointed Admin- 
istrator of the estate of Anthony Ludlam, with the widow Sarah 
Ludlam, and Anthony, Jr., makes it probable that Isaac Corey's 
wife, Sarah, was a daughter of Anthony and Sarah Ludlam.* 

The following quaint receipt, might however, point to some 
connection with New London.

had inherited, most, if not all, of his father's real 
estate, felt it a pleasure, if not a duty, to bestow 
lands on his kindred." He gave Jonathan 48 acres 
of land, on 20 Sept., 17 18-19. Jonathan was living 
at Southold, on 8 Oct., 1747; he m. Mary, probably 
da. of Jacob Conkling, 9 Jan., 1719-20. She d. (per-

than Kore of Goshen, and Rebecca, widow of John 
Conkling, is recorded at East Hampton, L. I., on 
14 May, 1745.

dated 10 Dec, 1768, proved 11 Feb., 1770, men-

5. Jacob 2 Corey (John 1 ), of Southold, d. 15 Feb., 1706. A list of 
Jacob's lands will be found in the Town Records. He was Over- 
seer, and Patentee of Southold, in 1676. He was worth ^92 in 
1683, while three years later his household was composed of two 
males and five females. 

Griffin in his Journal names Jacob Corey in his list of the 
thirteen earliest settlers of Southold. This oft-quoted list is not 
supported by any documentary evidence whatsoever, as has been 
ably shown by the late Mr. J. Wickham Case, and also by Dr. 
Epher Whi taker, in his History of Southold. The will of John 
Corey first, mentioned above, is proof that Jacob was of the 
second Corey generation. 

He married, as early as 1672, Ann (Tuthill?), who died on the 
11 April, 1739. Issue, named in the order given in the Census of 

i. Jacob, Jr., 3 b. about 1673, he died suddenly in 1745, ae.

ham, Suffolk, Eng.. in 1637, with his wife Elizabeth and six children. Thos. 2 was b. in England, 

11 Dec, 1586 ; his will dated io:2d. mo., 1638, was proved in the Salem Quarterly Court, 5mo., 

1644. The inventories of both Elizabeth, his wife, and their son Peter, were dated Southold, 
L. I., 15 Sept., 1658. Peter's widow Mary was the 2d wife of Jeremiah Vail. 

From the Southold Land Records, and the discovery of the unrecorded will of John Payne, 
it would appear that he was son of Peter, aforesaid, and not of Peter's brother John, as formerly 

The said will, dated Southold, 3 Feb., 1706-7, proved 3 Oct., 1707. mentions " Wife Jemima, 
das. Mary Corye and Martha Case, sons Alsop, John, and Peter Paine, sons-in-law Abraham

New York Public Library, Lenox Branch.) 

Ketchum's Hill, Richmond, S. I. 

Dotted, as the map of Staten Island is, with the old burial 
grounds of families antedating the Revolution, and in danger, as 
these "graves of the households" are, at the hands of building 
speculators, stray cattle and land improvers, a gleaner after Time 
desires to preserve these sepulchral memorials in the columns of 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, know- 
ing well their value to the genealogist and their utility to the 
''joiner" of patriotic societies. 

Ketchum s Hill, situated about a mile from Richmond, holds 
on its apex an old burial ground, where British soldiers as well 
as embattled farmers await the Last Reveille. One stone has 
been uprooted by cattle, another is in fragments (but was pieced 
together and transcribed). 

The names, dates and material facts on the 23 monumental 
stones existing March 11, 1900, are hereunder set forth. The 
fate of these memorials is not difficult to foresee, on a vacant 
farm, overrun by cattle.

Address by Gen. James Grant Wilson, at the Centennial 

of the Historian's Birth, Worcester, Mass., 

October 4, 1900. 

The foremost American historians are generally ranked in the 
following order: Bancroft, Prescott and Motley, although Thomas 
Carlyle in conversation with your speaker claimed that to arrive 
at their proper standing their order should, in his judgment, be 
reversed. Said the Chelsea philosopher: "I have read Prescott's 
and Bancroft's books once, but this," pointing to an open volume 
on his library desk, "is my second reading of Motley's 'Dutch 
Republic,'— a grand history." A few weeks later, having pre- 
sented a letter of introduction from Bancroft to Leopold Von 
Ranke, he remarked: "I am happy to welcome to Berlin a friend 
of the greatest of American historians." But whether George 
Bancroft's place is properly first or last among the Americans 
mentioned, we may all agree in believing that he is rightfully 
entitled to the centennial honors paid to his memory by his native 

It is a curious circumstance that the four leading American 
historians should all have been natives of Massachusetts— Wil- 
liam H. Prescott (1796-1859), George Bancroft (1800-1891), John 
Lothrop Motley (1814-1887), and Francis Parkman (1823-1893). 
Three of these writers inherited fortunes, while the fourth mar- 
ried a wealthy wife, so that they were all enabled to pursue their 
historical investigations without the necessity of providing for 
the support of families by feeding them, as Douglas Jerrold jocu- 
larly described it, out of an inkstand. 

Bancroft was graduated from Harvard with honors at the 
early age of seventeen, winning during his course the particular 
favor and regard of President Kirkland, and three years later he 
received the degree of Ph.D. from the University of Gottingen. 
At this time he selected history as his special branch, naming as 
one of his reasons the desire to see if the observation of masses 
of men in action would not lead by the inductive method to the 
establishment of the laws of morality as a science. Removing to 

a 2 George Bancroft. [Jan., 

Berlin, he became intimate with Schleier, Savigny, Lappenberg, 
Alexander and William von Humboldt and Von Ense, and at 
Jena he made the acquaintance of Goethe, who in conversation 
with the young American was enthusiastic in his praise of Lord 
Byron, pronouncing him "the greatest of living poets," and ex- 
pressing regret that he had never seen the New World. Ban- 
croft studied at Heidelberg with the historian Schlosser, and in 
1822 he returned to his native land, accepting for one year the 
position of tutor at Harvard. 

Perhaps no better picture of Bancroft at the close of his stu- 
dent life could be presented than is contained in a note of intro- 
duction from the younger Humboldt to Pictel, of Geneva, which 
city the young American visited before returning to the United 
States: "II prends la liberte mon respectable ami et confrere, de 
vous recommander un jeune American qui a faite d'excellentes 
etudes de philologie et d'histoire philosophique en Allemagne M. 
Bancroft est bien digne de vous voir de pres; il est l'arni de mon 
frere et il appartient a cette noble race de jeunes Americains qui 
trouvent que la vrai bonheur le l'homme dans la culture de l'intel- 

Twelve years later Bancroft published the first volume of his 
"History of the United States," and in 1874 the tenth and con- 
cluding volume of his magnum opus appeared, the author during 
that period filling a place in President Polk's Cabinet; also, later, 
representing his country at the British and German courts. 
During the Franco-German war, while residing in Berlin, Ban- 
croft celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of his graduation at Got- 
tingen, and in reply to congratulations from Bismarck, then in 
the field, he sent him a letter dated September 30, 1870, saying: 

" I was equally surprised and delighted that while you are 
tasked with the work of renovating Europe you yet found time 
to send me lately a friendly congratulation on my being spared 
so long. It is indeed a great happiness to survive until these 
times, when three or four men who love nothing so much as 
peace, and after long and hard service were only seeking to close 
their career in tranquility, win, during a war of defence, more 
military glory than the wildest imagination conceived, and in 
three months bid fair to bring the German hope of a thousand 
years to its fulfilment. So I gratefully accept the good- will con- 
ceded to my old age; for old age, which is almost always nearest 
to eternity, is this year mightiest on earth, this German war be- 
ing conducted to its ends by the aged. You; to be sure, are 
young, but Roon must be classed among the Venerables; Moltke 
is within twenty-three days as old as I am, and your King in 
years and youthfulness excels us all. May I not be proud of my 
contemporaries? Retain for me your regard in the little time 
that remains for me." 

Before Bancroft's departure from Berlin he was overwhelmed 
with honors. The Roval Academy gave him a farewell dinner, 
and the universities of'Berlin, Heidelberg and Munich united in 
a parting tribute signed by fourscore and ten professors. The 
document says: "Your name is the intellectual possession of

every one among us. You have contributed to the most com- 
plete understanding of the problems set for a free people in that, 
as one of the foremost historians, you have portrayed those im- 
mortal deeds which led to the rise of a great free State beyond 
the sea and which will find in every age a response in the hearts 
of free-minded men. We feel a just pride that you may be re- 
membered among those who most thoroughly appreciate German 
science. We can recall with satisfaction your name to prove that 
as the representative of the United States you combined the 
spirit of true scientific procedure with the insight of a states- 

In a communication from Washington, when past fourscore, 
to your speaker, the venerable historian writes: "I have your 
valued letter and have made one or two corrections in the article 
about myself which you kindly sent me. There is one point 
which was further reaching than is mentioned in the article. 
Great Britian, you will remember, for a long period refused to 
concede that her emigrants, whether from Great Britain or Ire- 
land, to the United States, might throw off their allegiance to the 
mother country and become citizens of the United States. The 
principle involved in this question was the one I had to discuss 
with the Government of Prussia, and in a treaty obtained the 
formal recognition of the expatriation at the will of the indi- 
vidual emigrant. A certain degree of supremacy still attaching 
to several States, I negotiated with them all, one by one, a corre- 
sponding treaty. England watched the course of negotiations, 
resolving to conform to the principle which Count Bismarck 
might adopt for Prussia. It was this treaty with the German 
powers which in fact settled the question for Great Britain, who 
immediately gave up the claim to perpetual allegiance and ac- 
cepted for its own dominions the principle which Prince Bis- 
marck had accepted for Germany, so that the treaty with Bis- 
marck was in fact a settlement of the whole question with Great 

In another letter to your speaker Mr. Bancroft says: "Great 
Britain had raised a doubt as to the interpretation of the treaty 
settling the northwestern boundary of the United States. I, who 
had been a member of the Polk Cabinet when the treaty was 
framed, and who, as Minister to England after the formation of 
the treaty, saw the first beginning of the attempt in England to 
change the line in a way very much to the interest of Great 
Britain, successfully prevented the progress of the attempt. Mr. 
Seward had with England agreed on Switzerland as an arbitra- 
tor, and had further agreed that the arbiter might make a com- 
promise boundary. This was a kind of confession that would 
naturally lead the arbiter to a compromise decision, which might 
grievously offend neither party. Soon after Mr. Seward's death, I, 
who was then Minister at Berlin, wrote to the Government that 
where each party consented to a compromise, a compromise was 
pretty certain to be the decision of the arbiter, and that if they 
would adhere strictly to the point that the arbiter should have 
nothing to do but to decide the meaning of the treaty, and would

agree to the King of Prussia as the arbiter, I believed that Prus- 
sia would not be swayed by any family connection, but would 
certainly deliver a righteous verdict, and I recommended that 
that course be adopted. General Grant's Cabinet, which followed 
Mr. Seward, never for themselves entertained the idea of a com- 
promise, and they adopted my proposal of referring the matter 
to the King of Prussia. The argument, and the reply to the ar- 
gument of Great Britain, were written, every word of them, by 

The settlement of the Oregon question, which brought us 
periloiisly near war with the mother country, was Mr. Bancroft's 
last public service. At the opening of the argument submitted 
to the German Emperor in December, 1871, he said: "The treaty 
of which the interpretation is submitted to Your Majesty's arbit- 
rament was ratified more than a quarter of a century ago. Of 
the sixteen members of the British Cabinet which framed and 
presented it for the acceptance of the United States, Sir Robert 
Peel, Lord Aberdeen and all the rest but one (Mr. Gladstone) are 
no more. The British Minister at Washington who signed it is 
dead. Of American statesmen concerned in it, the Minister at 
London, the President and Vice-President, the Secretary of State 
and every one of the President's constitutional advisers except 
one have passed away. I alone remain, and after finishing the 
threescore years and ten that are the days of our years, am se- 
lected by my country to uphold its rights." Nine and twenty 
years have passed since these pathetic words were spoken by the 
American Minister. During that period he and the single sur- 
vivor of Sir Robert Peel's Cabinet have followed their distin- 
guished contemporaries — Bancroft in 1891 and the gifted Glad- 
stone seven years later. 

Mr. Bancroft's well-appointed Berlin residence on the Thier- 
garten was, said Ranke, the most popular house in the German 
capital, for there all classes could meet together in friendly inter- 
course. Statesmen, scholars, soldiers, poets, artists and men of 
science met at his house and table. Bismarck and Von Moltke 
were not infrequent guests, and there could be seen the diplo- 
matic circle and such men as Dorner, Droyson, Helmholtz, 
Mommsen and Von Ranke. Bancroft often rode on horseback in 
company with the great Chancellor, and visited him at Varzin, 
where no other member of the Diplomatic Corps was ever re- 
ceived. "To this day," said Professor Ranke in 1883, "I have 
never ceased to regret the departure from Berlin of my friend 
George Bancroft." The American, speaking of the German his- 
torian, said he recalled the description Johnson gave of Garrick, 
"as the cheerfulest man of his age." While he prefers to burn 
the midnight oil, continuing his labors until 1 or 2 in the morn- 
ing, I have always preferred to work by daylight, doing, like Sir 
Walter Scott, much of my writing before breakfast. In Summer 
I was often at my desk before 6 o'clock. My afternoons and 
evenings are devoted to exercise, reading and society. For fifty 
years it has been my habit to spend several hours of each day in 
the open air, and to that practice I chiefly attribute the preserva- 

1 90 1 . ] George Bancroft. 4 5 

tion of my mental and physical health to nearly fourscore and 
ten. In answer to your speaker's inquiry he said: "No, I do not 
recall anv historian except my friend Von Ranke, who continued 
to work "beyond eighty-nine, and but few scholars that have 
reached that age— Sophocles, Fontenelle and Chevreul— being 
three instances which occur to me at the moment." 

When nearly fourscore and ten, and after he had abandoned 
his favorite exercise of riding on horseback, your speaker accom- 
panied Mr. Bancroft on an afternoon walk from his house in 
Washington. Arriving in Georgetown, where we turned after a 
half-hour's stroll, and thinking the venerable man might be 
weary, his companion remarked that perhaps they had better 
take a passing street car and ride back. To this suggestion the 
still vigorous veteran promptly replied, "Are you fatigued, sir?" 
and so" they completed their three or more miles' walk. They 
chanced to' meet again that evening at a dinner table, when the 
historian, none the worse for his long walk, merrily related how 
he had tired out his young New York friend, who became fatigued 
and wished to ride back. A few days later your speaker was one 
of a small circle who enjoyed listening to Mr. Bancroft's remin- 
iscences of Bvron, Bunsen, Goethe, Guizot, Humboldt, Macaulay 
and many other celebrated men with whom he was acquainted 
during the first half of the century. 

The eminent statesman, scholar and historian died in his 
Washington residence, January 17, 1891. An official announce- 
ment of the event was made by the President of the United 
States, and the Senate, on motion of Senator Hoar, adjourned in 
order that its members might attend his funeral. Among the 
many tributes received by Mr. Bancroft's son was the following 
telegram from the Emperor of Germany, transmitted through 
Count Arco Valley, the German Minister at Washington: 

"Sir: His Majesty, the Emperor and King, remembering the 
relation of friendship which for many years existed between His 
Majesty the late Emperor William and the late Hon. George 
Bancroft as Minister of the United States to Berlin, has directed 
me to express to you, and to your family, his most sincere sym- 
pathy with the great loss which has fallen upon you and your 

The funeral was held at St. John's church, and was attended 
by the President and Mrs. Harrison, the Cabinet, the Diplomatic 
Corps, and chief Government officials. The floral tributes were 
numerous and beautiful, one being from the President of the 
United States, and another, placed on the coffin, was the gift of 
William the Third, Emperor of Germany. 

Von Ranke, shortly before his death, expressed a desire that 
his large and valuable library should be acquired by the Govern- 
ment. & The historian's family and the German literary public 
confidently expected that the Prussian Government would pur- 
chase the' collection. There was delay in doing so, and it was 
ultimately bought bv an American university. Mr. Bancroft also 
wished that his collection, particularly rich in historical manu- 
scripts, should be purchased by the Library of Congress. Tt was 

46 George Bancroft. [Jan., 

offered to the authorities for $75,000. The same delay usually 
attending government action in such affairs occurred, and the 
Bancroft collection, after several years, was sold to the trustees 
of the Lenox Library of New York for a larger sum than that 
for which it had been offered to the nation. The library is 
famous for its rare Americana, including a large collection of 
English, French and German manuscripts, the latter numbering 
several hundred journals, reports, muster rolls, and a large mass 
of correspondence relating to the Hessian troops that fought for 
George the Third in the Revolutionary War. 

Like his successor in Berlin, Bayard Taylor, Mr. Bancroft 
spoke German almost without accent, and in his manner and 
dress often suggested a German. He was frequently seen wear- 
ing a Prussian military cap, with the straight visor, and always 
wore such a cap when walking or on horseback. He was fond of 
reading and speaking German, and was much attached to the 
stalwart servant he brought back from Berlin, who had been in 
the Prussian army. By his will he left the faithful Hermann a 
bequest of $365 per annum. 

It is of course to his magnum opus, on which he labored more 
or less during a period of half a century, that Bancroft's chief 
claim to remembrance rests. It is written with what Edward 
Burke describes "as the cold neutrality of an impartial judge," 
and may be consulted in all the principal libraries of Europe. 
This noble work has held, and will continue to hold, a high place 
not only in American literature, but in that of the world, as its 
authority is everywhere recognized, and it can be read in many 
languages. Perhaps the highest eulogy ever passed upon the 
work was by that sturdy Englishman, John Bright, who said: 
"The study which it gives or offers, and the lessons which it 
teaches, surpass, to my mind, those that I have derived from or 
found in any other book of history." 

Since Bancroft's departure for the voiceless land, there has 
been completed in the nation's capital the grandest building ever 
erected for the conservation of books. In the Congressional 
Library may be seen many beautiful works of art } among them 
a painting by one of the leading artists of the land, representing 
History. Two tablets are introduced in the picture, on which 
are inscribed the names of fourteen of the most illustrious histo- 
rians of the past two thousand years, on the adamant of whose 
fame the stream of Time beats without injury. In that brilliant 
bead-roll is included your townsman Bancroft. Of him may be 
said, in the words written of Fitz-Greene Halleck by another son 
of Massachusetts: 

" He sleeps: he cannot die ! 
As evening's long-drawn sigh, 
Lifting the rose-leaves on his peaceful mound, 

Spreads all their sweets around, 
So, laden with his song, the breezes blow 
From where the rustling sedge 
Frets our rude ocean's edge 
To the smooth sea beyond the peaks of snow. 
His soul the air enshrines, and leaves but dust below !"

Should one become interested in the study of this family, they 
would find the same eccentricities, or variations in nomenclature, 
as are found in many of the family names of our early settlers. 
They would discover, whichever way the scribes of colonial times, 
or decision of the owner, had adorned the spelling of the name, 
that in tracing back to the fountain-head or source in this country, 
the line would, if brought within the bounds of Colonial New 
York, lead them to one of two sturdy Hug ueno ts, who, thinking 
to improve life's fortunes, and, no doubVto~exercise religious 
freedom, packed their belongings and set sail under the flag of 
Holland' to the new Dutch colony so recently established in the 
New World, and named New Amsterdam. These two emigrants 
were Nicholas and Francois Dupuis, who came at different times, 
the former from Artois and the latter from Calais, which may not 
mean, as the records would infer, that they were from separate 
places; for when it is understood that Artois was a Province 
located in the "Department of Calais," a division of France bor- 
dering on the Netherlands, it may be seen how possible it is that 
both were from the same neighborhood, if not, indeed, of the 
same family, and if proof was needed of a relationship, good cir- 
cumstantial evidence would be found in the fact that Francois 
had a son Nicholas, evidently named for the senior Nicholas, who, 
with his wife, stood as god-parents to the infant when baptized 
in the Old Dutch Church of New York, October 17, 1686.* 

While Nicholas and Francois Dupuis appear to have been the 
ancestors of the several generations in the Province of New 
York following the advent in New Amsterdam of those worthy 
individuals, it seems equally certain that they were not the only 

• N. Y. Gen. 6* Biog. Record, Vol. x., p. 117. 

ca The Family of Dupnis, De Pny, Depew, Etc. [Jan., 

emigrants of the name to this country. Rev. Mr. Baird, in his 
" Huguenot Emigration to America," Vol. II., discovers among 
the French settlers of Oxford, Mass., in 1691, the names: Elie 
(Elias), and Jean (John) Dupuis; the former of whom he con- 
ceives to be the father of the latter, whom he believes is identical 
with a John he finds in 1705, and again in 1729, as an elder of the 
French Church in Boston. The will of this John was made Jan- 
uary 4, 1734, probated June 9, 1743, naming sons, John, Daniel, 
Charles, Isaac and Elias. 

In the same volume may be found an item of evident relation 
to this family that was gleaned from English records by Mr. 
Baird, whose research for Huguenot history has certainly been 
very exhaustive. He says that: "Elie Dupeux," seaman, of Port 
des Barques, on the coast of Saintonge (France), fled to England 
about 168I, where he was naturalized March 21, 1682, and his 
family recorded as follows: "Elias DuPus with Mary his wife, 
and Elias, John, Mary and Susanna, their children." Then on 
another page, evidently speaking of the same individual, he says: 
"He and his wife Elizabeth with their four children, occupied 
one of the French houses in Oxford." It would, therefore, ap- 
pear that Elias, having lost his wife, Mary, married again and 
came with his family to America, thus becoming the head of a 
distinct lineage, some branches of which spell the name Dupee. 

Mr. Baird finds yet another Protestant of this family, one who 
early joined a French colony on the James River, in Virginia. 
He was Barthelemy Dupuy, a captain of the " Household Guards" 
of Louis XIV., King of France. Disregarding the advice of the 
King, who promised him a substantial reward to abjure, he fled 
with his wife, after the revocation of the " Edict of Nantes," across 
the border to Germany, where they remained about fourteen 
years, going to England in 1699, from which country they soon 
after came to America. 

The records of the Protestant French Church in New York 
City* furnish us with a Jean Du Puy, who, with his wife, Anne, had 
the following children baptized, viz.: Jeane (Jane), Feb. 15, 17 15; 
Jean, Oct. 27, 1717; Daniel, May 10, 1719; Thomas, Sept. 11, 1720; 
Francois, Nov. 8, 1721; Paul, July 17, 1723, and Isabelle, Sept. 6, 
1727. He became quite prominent as a physician, and died in 
July, 1744. His will, May 27, 1741,! mentions: wife, Ann; sons, 
John, Daniel, Francis; daughters, Hester and Jane. Son John 
died in New York in 1745!, leaving an only child, Anna Sophia. 
Francis died before 1750 without issue.§ According to a series of 
pedigrees in the "American Ancestry," the widow (Anne Charda- 
voine) and son Daniel removed to Philadelphia, where Daniel 
married and continued his family lineage. The " Series of Pedi- 
grees" claim Doctor John to have been a native of France, born 
in 1679, coming to New York via the Island of Jamaica, where he 
lived in childhood. His tombstone is preserved in the wall of the 
vestry room of Trinity Church. 

The records of the same French Church also furnish us with

an Andrew Du Puy. He and his wife, Jane Archanbeau, had their 
daughter Janne baptized there July 14, 1706. It was about two 
years before that this couple were granted license to marry,* and 
in October, 1703, Andrew Dupuy petitioned the Governor of 
New Yorkf for new papers for his sloop Jacob, he having lost the 
original papers in a shipwreck. Not finding Andrew again, it 
may be safe to conjecture that he suffered another shipwreck, 
thereby discontinuing a lineage of the name. 

As but comparatively few of the French inhabitants became 
Protestants, it is reasonable to suppose that many of the family 
of Dupuis remained loyal to the Roman faith. Among these we 
find the very first bearing that name of record in America, and, 
singularly, though a man of position, he appears to us in a part 
of the country almost unknown to white men, in the land of the 
Onondagas.J He was Sieur Dupuys, and we locate him, in the 
year 1656, with a company of Frenchmen, over which he had 
command, at a place called by the Indians Ganentaa,§ situate 
near the head of Lake Onondaga, at or near Syracuse, where he 
had formed a settlement under orders of the French Governor at 
Quebec, Canada. The Onondaga Indians had been converted a 
short time previously to the Catholic religion, and promised the 
new settlement protection; but in less than two years Dupuys 
and his company, learning that they were to be exterminated 
through the machinations of other Indian tribes, secretly made 
their escape by water to Lake Ontario, thence down the St. Law- 
rence to Quebec; thus ending a scrap of history of peculiar inter- 
est to a locality that the white man did not again undertake to 
settle for more than one hundred years. We are not told the 
given name of this adventurous commander but finding other 
Dupuys in and around Quebec a few years later, it is natural to 
presume that they were related, if not, indeed, descendants of Sieur 
Dupuys. It is interesting, to say the least, that among these Cana- 
dian Dupuys we are permitted to find the names of both Nicholas 
and Francois; then again, Moses and Paul will show a further 
family resemblance when compared with the family of Nicholas 
of New York, but where the connection is, this paper will not 
undertake to solve. 

The next mention of these Canadian Dupuys was of Nicholas. 
He was also apparently in the employ of the French Government, 
and one of a company sent out from Quebec to the Western 
Country in search of copper and other minerals. They were en- 
camped at Sault Ste. Marie, then an Indian village in the present 
State of Michigan, from which place they made a report,! bearing 
date 14th June, 167 1. It was sixteen years later that Paul Dupuy, 
"Councillor of the King," with a company of Frenchmen, having 
subdued the Indians, took, possession of the Seneca country. 
Their declaration,! was " Done at the Village of Totiakton, the 
largest of the Seneca villages," on the 19th of July, 1687.

probably, this same Paul Dupuis, who married in 1668 Jeanne 
Gouillard; also Francois, born 1634, m. 1670 Georgette Richer; 
Jacques, born 1657, m. 1687 Madelene Prevost; Louis, born 1658, 
m. 1688 Barbara Debian. These were all recorded as of Quebec 
except Jacques, who was of Three Rivers. All had children re- 
corded except Paul. Francois had two sons baptized, viz.: Rene, 
167 1, and Moise (Moses), 1673, the latter of whom came down to 
Albany for a wife, where, as a matter of fact, he was residing in 
July, 1697, when he married Annetje Christiaanse of that place. 
The records of the Reformed Dutch Church there give Canada 
as his place of birth. They seem to have settled at Champlain, 
and, according to the Genealogical Dictionary mentioned, had 
eight children baptized. He seems to have been the parent of 
two other children, viz.: Jan Baptiste and Johannes, who were 
baptized in Albany in 1696, the year previous to his marriage to 
Miss Christiaanse. 

So much for the outside lines of this family, which, being dis- 
posed of, do not appear to affect or confuse the main purpose of 
this paper, viz.: the Hudson River Depews.

It is exceedingly gratifying to students of American history, to note that, 
amid the mass of "pub. docs." issued by the various State governments in our 
Union (most of them of more profit to the State Printer than to anyone else), 
there are some of great historical value. In our own State, the State Historian, 
Mr. Hugh Hastings, is fully vindicating by his work the wisdom of his appoint- 
ment to that responsible office; and from the following, published in the N. Y. 
Times of Nov. 18, 1900, we learn that he has "made a great haul" of historical 
matter of the utmost importance to early New York history. 

Especially interesting will be the matter found at th6 Hague, by Dr. Cor- 
win, relating to the establishment of an independent Classis (or Ccectus) by the 
American Churches of the Reformed Dutch faith — a movement which, about 
the middle of the last century, convulsed the whole establishment, and was a 
"burning queston" in the Dutch Church — dividing congregations and even fam- 
ilies and old friendships, in a manner which was sad, and, at times, humorous 
in its manifestation: 

"To New York State must be given the credit for obtaining the original 
historical documents relating to this section which have for many generations 
been in the archives of Holland. The acquisition of these records from the 
Classis of Amsterdam is the State's latest achievement. The volumes of them, 
prepared under the direction and supervision of State Historian Hugh Hastings, 
have gone to the printer. The matter was edited by Dr. E. P. Corwin, who was 
sent to Holland originally by the Synod of the Dutch Church, and found there 
a great mass of matter relating to New York, especially to the churches, for 178 
years — 1631 to 1810. The value of this find can only be estimated by the stu- 
dent of history. 

J. Romeyn Brodhead was sent as State Agent under act of May 2, 1839, to 
England, France and Holland to secure copies of all desirable documents for 
preservation in New York. In 1845 M f - Brodhead, in a report to Gov. Wright, 
stated that the records of the West India Company had been sold in 1821 for 
old paper. In all he expended about $12,000 of the public moneys, and in his 
researches at The Hague passed over a mass of stuff, assuming that all that 
was of interest to New York State was lost early in the present century. 

In the material found by Dr. Corwin are minutes of several sessions of the 
Ccetus, or early American classis, subsequent to 1754, representing some of the 
most important acts of that body in connection with their assumption of inde- 

- If'

pendence. The minutes of several sessions are still missing. There are many 
lengthy and important papers bearing upon special local and personal themes, 
which will clear up not a few obscure points in the history of the last century. 
By dove-tailing what Mr. Brodhead got with this newly-discovered matter, a 
complete history of the Church in New York from earliest colonial times can 
be obtained. 

The minutes of the Synod of North Holland begin in 1572, ten years before 
those of the Classis of Amsterdam, and reaching into the days of the Spanish 
tyranny. The minutes of all the particular Synods of the Northern Netherlands, 
from 1572 jo 1620, have recently been collected and printed, in eight volumes. 

Dr. Corwin began his examination of the minutes of the Synod of North 
Holland with the year 162 1, some part of his researches being carried on at The 
Hague. He examined all volumes available, covering a period of 190 years." 

The New Paltz Independent publishes an article written by Ralph Le 
Fever, its editor, relative to the blending of the French and Dutch at New Paltz, 
which is an important contribution to the solution of a much disputed question 
relating to the early history of Ulster County. 

Mr. LeFever says that the first young man of Dutch origin to marry a Hu- 
guenot maiden and to locate within the bounds of the patent of New Paltz was 
Jacob Klaarwater, who belonged to the Bontecoe branch of the Klaarwater 
family, and who married Marie Deyo, a Huguenot girl, in 1698. That on Sun- 
day, the 3d day of July, 1699, they presented their first-born son, Abraham, for 
baptism, and he was christened by the French pastor of the Huguenot Church 
at New Paltz. 

Abraham Deyo, the Huguenot patentee, married Elsje Klaarwater, a 
Dutch girl, in 1702, she being a sister of Jacob Klaarwater of Bontecoe. 

Then Jacob Freer, a Huguenot, married Altje VanWeyen, a Dutch maid- 
en, in 1705. 

Hendricus Deyo, another Huguenot, married Margaret VanBummell in 1706. 

In the next generation there were other intermarriages of the Dutch and 
the Huguenots, but such marriages, Mr. LeFever says, were far fewer than are 
generally supposed, and the Dutch and the French did not intermarry to any 
great extent until a later period. 

It is to be hoped that the editor of the Independent will collate all his ar- 
ticles in some permanent form, as they are valuable and interesting; and no 
one living in Ulster County is more familiar with the early traditions than is he. 


Bixby, Robert Forsyth, a Life Member of this Society, since Dec. 9, 
1881, died at his residence in this city, 16th Oct., 1900. He was the son of John 
M. Bixby and Mary Poe, the father being a native of Fairfield, Conn., where 
he was born 13 Feb. 1800, dying in N. Y. City, 21 Nov.. 1876; and the mother, a 
native of the South, born 12 April, 1825, and dying 27 Oct., 1854. The son, 
Robert Forsyth, was born 14 Apl., 1850, at Augusta, Ga.; grad. at Trinity Col- 
lege, Hartford, Conn., 1870; at the Columbia College Law School, 1872; was 
engaged in real estate and in practice of law in this city, being at one time a 
partner with Mayor Van Wyck; and was never married. He was a member of 
the following organizations: The Union League Club, the Union Club, the N. Y. 
Bar Association, the University Club, the Downtown Association, the Alpha Delta 
Phi (College) Fraternity, Sons of the Revolution, the Seawanhaka Cor. Yacht 
Club, the City Club, the N. Y. Athletic Club, and the American Geographical So- 
ciety. His estate, including large and valuable holdings of land, orange groves, 
etc., in Florida and elsewhere, was valued at $650,000, and his personal estate at 
$30,000. He inherited a half of his father's large fortune in 1876, including the 
property at Thirty-ninth Street and Fifth Avenue, leased by the Union League 
Club. The Club has been paying the estate a rental of $12,000 a year for the 
property, but for the renewal of the lease for twenty-one years additional from 
May 1 next will be required to pay $25,000 a year, a striking instance of the 
increase of values in real estate on this island. He had a sister, Grace S. Bixby, 
who, several years after her father's death, married Casimir I. Mankowski. 


Obituary. [Jan., 

She has been ill since 1882. Her husband and two sons reside at the Sele 
House, Rochester, England. 

Field, Osgood, a Corresponding Member of this Society, who died in 
Paris, France, November 3d, 1900, was the second of seven children of Moses 
Field and his wife Susan Kittredge {ne'e Osgood), and was born at No. 482 
Broadway, New York City, 14th November, 1823. His father, Moses Field, 
was born 4 Oct., 1779, and died December 21st, 1833; n ' s mother was the 
daughter of Hon. Samuel Osgood, who was under Washington's adminis- 
tration the first Postmaster-General and Commissioner of the Treasury of the 
United States, and Member of the Cabinet. She was born 12 April, 1795; mar- 
ried to Mr. Field 17 May, 1821; died May, 1834. Their children were: (1) 
Maunsell Bradhurst Field, b. 22 March, 1822, Asst. Sec'y of U. S. Treasury 
under the Lincoln Administration, and, later, Judge of the 2d Dist. Court 
of N. Y.; died 1875; (2) Osgood Field, b. 14 Nov., 1823, the subject of our 
sketch; (3) Franklin Clinton* Field, born 5 Aug., 1825, the only survivor of the 
family; (4) Susan Maria, b. 13 Aug., 1827, d. Dec. 30, 1893; (5) Caroline Ma- 
tilda, b. 11 March, 1829; (6) Moses Augustus, b. 15 April, 1831; (7) William 
Hazard, b. 15 Aug., 1833. 

Osgood Field's paternal grandfather was born 1731 ; married, 8 June, 1763, 
Lydia(dau.Wm.) Hazard, of Jamestown, R. I., and d. 181 5; his wife d. 15 Jan., 1795. 

Osgood Field's father, Moses, was a merchant in this city (Bradhurst & 
Field), where he settled about 1800; retired from business about 1820, and trav- 
eled in Europe. 

The Hon. Samuel Osgood, maternal grandfather of Osgood Field, married, 
(1) 4 Jan., 1775, Martha Brandon, who d. without issue in 1778; he m. (2) Maria 
(dau. of Daniel) Bowne, of Flushing, and widow of Walter Franklin, of Frank- 
lin Square, New York City. The Franklin mansion, from which Mr. Osgood 
took his wife, was, at that time, probably the finest residence in the city; and 
his acquaintance with Mrs. Franklin began by his calling upon her to learn if 
it was possible that it could be procured for President Washington as a 
residence, which he occupied soon after. He found her engaged in teaching 
her three little girls — who afterwadrs became, respectively, the wives of De 
Witt Clinton, George Clinton and John Norton. At a future visit Mr. O. became 
engaged to Mrs. Franklin, whom he married 24 May, 1786. 

Osgood Field, our recent associate, received his education at the French 
boarding school of the Brothers Peregnet, traveled for awhile in his own 
country, and then sailed for London, Eng., where he established himself in the 
commission business; but subsequently retired from business and settled in 
Rome, where other members of his family were then residing. 

In 1880, Mr. Field married Katherine Roxana Parker, daughter of Milton 
Parker, of Utica, N. Y., and cousin of Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan. Their home for 
many years was in the Palazzo Colonna — and they spent several months, annu- 
ally, between Rome, London, Paris, and the various Spas of Europe. It was 
on his return to Rome that Mr. Field was seized with pneumonia, at Paris, 
where he died, November 3d, 1900. He had survived most of his contempo- 
raries, and his last visit to New York was about ten years ago. 

He always retained a lively interest in American affairs, was a Fellow of 
the Society of Antiquaries of London, Eng., a member of the N. Y. Historical 
Society, Corresponding Member of the New Eng. Hist.-Gen. Soc'y, and, since 
1882, of this Society. In 1895 he compiled and printed privately a Record and 
Genealogical History of the Fields of Sowerby, near Halifax, Eng., and of 
Flushing, N. Y., with some notices of the families of Underhill, Bowne, Burling, 
Hazard and Osgood. 

He left no issue. His cousin, the late Hickson Field, whose daughter is the 
Princess Brancaccio, also lived in Rome while Mr. Field lived there, and no 
American families were better known in the Eternal City. The families of 
Jay, Pell, Schieffelin and Osgood are among those related to Mr. Field. Mr.

Mower, Mandeville, a Life Member of this Society since 1896, died 
suddenly on October 28th, 1900, at his home, No. 673 Lexington Avenue, this 
city. Born in 1836, he was the second of four children, two sons and two 
daughters, the issue of Thomas Gardner Mower and Sarah Ann, daughter of 
John Hardman Entwistle, of New York City. Of these four children, the two 
daughters are the only ones now living. Mr. Mower died unmarried. He was 
a graduate of Columbia College, Class of 1856, and spent his life in semi seclu- 
sion, devoting himself to the study of plants, of which he grew quite a variety 
in his own rooms. The quality of public-spiritedness was unquestioned in him; 
and though he took no active part in the executive work of the various societies 
of which he was a member, yet his interest in their welfare was manifested in 
many ways. The following is a list of the organizations of which he was a Life 
Member. Assoc, of the Alumni, Columbia Coll.; Veteran Corps of Artillery, 
Military Soc. of the War of 1812: the Military Order of Foreign Wars of the 
U. S.; American Museum of Natural History; the New York Historical Society; 
the American Historical Association; the St. Nicholas Society of the City of 
New York, and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. 

Mr. Mower's father (through whom the ancestry goes back to Samuel, who 
came from Devonshire, Eng., and settled in Maiden, Mass., in 17 14), was a dis- 
tinguished surgeon in the United States Army during the War of 1812. He was 
a graduate of Harvard College in 1810, received his degree of Doctor of Medi- 
cine from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1814, served throughout 
the War of 1812 with the Ninth Infantry, and died in 1853 tne senior Surgeon 
in the U. S. A., which position he had occupied for many years. His corre- 
spondence with men who stood high in the political and military service of the 
country was extensive, and many of these letters have been published by Mr. 
Mandeville Mower in the New York Times and The Home Journal, to both of 
which he was a frequent contributor on historical subjects. 

Mr. Mower's death removes from our list of members a name valued and 
honored; and his absence from our meetings, at which he was a regular and 
constant attendant, will be noted with sorrow. 

Paul, Fulton, was elected a member of this Society October 12, 1894. 
He was born in the City of Hudson, in the County of Columbia, on the 17th day 
of April, 1841, and died there on Saturday, June 16th, 1900. His ancestor was 
Richard Paul, one of the Puritan settlers of Massachusetts Bay, whose wife 
was Margarie Turner of Cohannet. His great-grandfather, Samuel Paul, was 
a captain in both the Provincial and Colonial forces. His mother Catherine 
Fulton, was descended from the Fultons of County Derry, Ireland. Mr. Paul 
was educated at the Bradbury Classical Institute at Hudson, The Barstow 
Classical School at Newton, and The Williston Seminary at Easthampton, 
Massachusetts, where he fitted for Yale, which he was prevented from entering 
because of the failure of his health. 

In 1861 he went to the East Indies, and while in China, entered the employ 
of Russel and Company of Shanghai, as assistant superintendent of the Yangtse 
Navigation Company of which they were the principal owners, and for them 
made nine trips to Hankow, seven hundred and fifty miles up the Yangtse, 
which was as far as foreigners were then allowed to go. Resigning his position, 
he went to Japan, where he was the guest of the United States Minister, Gen. 
Robert H. Pruyn. In 1863 he started for home, traveling by way of Cochin- 
China and Egypt. From Alexandria, he went by caravan to Jerusalem, and 
from Joppa to Constantinople, where he was entertained by the then United 
States Minister, Col. Morris. Pursuing his homeward journey, he visited Italy, 
Switzerland, Germany and France. 

In 1864 he went to the front as Provisional Pay Master for the re-enlisted 
soldiers then at Harper's Ferry. In 1870 he was one of the party who crossed 
the continent on the first through railroad train over the Union Pacific, in 
company with the officers of that road and the representatives of the Boston 

60 Society Proceedings. [Jan., 

Board of Trade. In 1872 he was Assistant Secretary of State under the Hon. 
G. Hilton Scribner. In 1873 Governor Dix of New York, appointed Mr. Paul 
to the position of Deputy State Treasurer, and in 1875 ne was appointed by 
President Grant United States Consul at Trinidad. In 1882 he was transferred 
by President Arthur to the Consulship of the United States at Odessa on the 
Black Sea, and in 1884 President Arthur appointed him Consul General of the 
United States to Roumania, with headquarters at Bucharest. In 1885 he repre- 
sented the United States at the opening of the Hungarian Exposition at Buda- 
Pesth. He resigned his position in 1886 and returned to Hudson. Shortly 
after his return, he was the guest of the Directors of the Union Pacific Railroad 
on a tour of inspection of the properties of that road and of the Oregon Navi- 
gation Company. 

On November 18th, 1889, he married Margaretta, daughter of Christopher 
Myer, a native of Hanover, Germany, and the proprietor of an extensive 
rubber works which bore his name. Mr. and Mrs. Paul made their home at 
Hudson, where they entertained in the most charming manner. 

Mr. Paul was President of the Old Cemetery Association at Hudson, and of 
the new Cedar Park Cemetery of that place, and took the most active interest 
in both. He was a man of high personal character, with strict notions of 
honor, of most urbane and charming manners and a loyal friend. 

The above sketch of the life of the Hon. Fulton Paul, one of the members of this Society, 
was prepared by Judge Clearwater of Kingston, N. Y. 

Two obituaries of honored and recently deceased members — viz.: Gen. 
William S. Stryker and Hon. Alsop King — having been delayed by cir- 
cumstances beyond our control, will be presented in the April number of the 
Record, both accompanied by portraits. Editor. 


The opening meeting for the season of 1900-1901 was held in the Hall of 
the Society on Friday evening, October 12th. The President announced the 
death of the First Vice-President, Dr, Samuel Smith Purple, and referred feel- 
ingly to his long and faithful services in connection with the Society. An obit- 
uary and biographical sketch of Dr. Purple will be found in another part of 
this issue. The paper of the evening was read by Mr. Josiah Collins Pumpelly, 
entitled " Philip Freneau, the Revolutionary Poet," and Mr. Isaac Lawrence, in 
moving the vote of thanks, read a poem by Philip Freneau. 

The meeting of November 9th was graced with the presence of Mr. Isaac 
Townsend Smith, who read a most interesting paper upon the "Early Maritime 
Life of New England, by an Octogenarian." In his address Mr. Smith gave 
several graphic and spirited accounts of some of the engagements in the War 
of 1812, and read from contemporary English newspapers extracts bearing 
upon the subject. At the close of the address the Hon. Asa Bird Gardiner and 
several others related anecdotes of the war, which they had gathered from au- 
thentic sources. The President announced the death of the following members: 
Robert Forsyth Bixby, Mandeville Mower, and Gen. William Scudder Stryker, 
and referred briefly to the character and services of each. The Committee on 
Nominations, for the selection of candidates for Trustees for the term of 1901- 
1904, was then appointed by the Chair, according to the revised By-Laws, and 
directed to report later. The candidates selected by the Committee were 
Henry R. Stiles, M.D., Thomas G. Evans and Bowen W. Pierson, all returned. 

The regular meeting for December was held on the evening of Friday, 
December 14th, and a large attendance of members and friends filled the hall 
to listen to an address, "The Order of the Cincinnati in France," by Hon. Asa 
Bird Gardiner. Comte de Sahune de Lafayette was the guest of the Society, 
and the delegates to the General Convention of the Society of the Cincinnati 
occupied reserved seats as guests of the speaker. At the close of the paper 
Mr. Isaac Lawrence delivered an address to the Count of Lafayette in French, 
and others spoke at some length upon the topic under discussion. 

Some of the more important proceedings of the Board of Trustees for the 
same period are as follows: Edwin H. Weatherbee elected to the Board to fill

open to members at all times; the reading of them is perpetually dispensed 
with unless called for by a member. Mr. Silas Wodell elected to fill a vacancy 
in the Board caused by the death of Dr. Samuel S. Purple, and the election 
of Mr. Henry Pierson Gibson as Treasurer to succeed Mr. Pierson, resigned

Thomas Joy and His Descendants. A Portfolio of Family Pa- 
pers. Compiled by James Richard Joy, New York. Printed for the Family, 
1900. 8vo, Cloth, pp. 225. 

This work is the second step toward an adequate genealogy of Thomas Joy 
and his descendants. Its 225 pages of heavy paper, clear type, black ink and 
attractive illustrations give the descendants of Thomas Joy in the lines of his 
sons, Samuel of Boston, Joseph of Hingham and Ephraim of Berwick. Thomas, 
the father, settled in Boston and worked there as a builder and architect, and in 
that capacity erected the first town-house, a cut of which appears in this volume. 
Becoming involved in Dr. Child's protest against the restricted right of suf- 
frage, he was thrown into prison, and upon being released from there he moved 
to Hingham, where he died, in 1678. The details of his life as set forth in the 
biographical sketch by Edmund Steele Joy at the beginning of this work are 
full of interest, woven as they are among the political controversies that stirred 
so often the colonists of Massachusetts Bay. The genealogical data, arranged 
according to the established standard, is commendable for its lack of fulsome 
eulogy; for after all, the majority of our American ancestors were just born, 
married, lived useful but quiet lives, and died. This book is well indexed and 
nicely illustrated; and the author's apology for the fact that it does not include 
every one of the name of Joy is an unnecessary one, since we are all thankful 
for his labor in giving us so much. 

Public Papers of George Clinton, First Governor of New York. 
1777-1795-1801-1804. Vol. III. Albany, 1900. 8vo, Cloth. 

This volume, by the gifted Historian of our Empire State, is published as 
Appendix "N" of his Third Annual Report, and forms the third volume of the 
Revolutionary Series. Its contents refer more to civil than to military opera- 
tions, covering the period in which France acknowledged the independence of 
the Colonies, Lord North inaugurated his plan for the establishment of peace, 
the Articles of Confederation were signed by eleven of the States, and Benjamin 
Franklin sailed away as the first Minister to France. To all of these sub-

then an infant State, these papers, so carefully compiled by Mr. Hastings, re- 
late with charming and entertaining detail, throwing light upon the story of 
those days. 

Genealogy of the Family of Lieut. Samuel Benjamin and Ta- 
bitha Livermore, his Wife. Compiled by Mary Louise Benjamin, of Win- 
throp, Maine, 1900. 8vo, Cloth, pp. 112. Illustrated. 

A glance at the contents of this excellent book and an enumeration of them 
here is perhaps the most satisfactory review of its pages which we can give, for 
these contents are interesting indeed and full of material. Under that caption 
we find the following: Ancestry of Lieut. Samuel Benjamin, A Brief Account 
of his Military Service, Extracts from his Revolutionary Diary; Ancestry of 
Tabitha Livermore; Tabitha Livermore Benjamin; Family of Lieut. Benjamin; 
Col. Billy Benjamin; Descendants of Samuel, Jr.; Nathaniel; Betsey B. Mor- 
rison; Polly B. Ames; Martha B. Washburn; David, Charles and Elisha Ben- 
jamin, and Ruth B. Lovejoy. Some of the illustrations are: The Coat of Arms, 
Oath of Fidelity, portraits, etc. The book has grown, like many another, from 
original researches after the ancestors of the compiler, until the importunities 
of friends and the rumblings of conscience have impelled the author to give it 
forth to the use of an interested public. Kind friends ! Splendid conscience ! 
It is an excellent volume, well put together and mechanically in good form.

Vol. XXXII. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1901. No. 2. 


By William Nelson. 

The Strykers are among the oldest and best known families 
in Holland, one branch having been located near The Hague for 
eight centuries, and another living near Rotterdam. Many 
ancient tombs of the family, with sculptured arms surmounted 
by a ducal coronet, are to be seen in the old cathedral of St. 
Bavon, Haarlem. 

Jan Strycker came to New Amsterdam in 1652, and two years 
later removed to Midwout (now Flatbush), Long Island, where 
for nearly twenty years he was the Chief Magistrate, and held 
various positions, civil and military, until his death in 1697, at the 
age of eighty-two. His son, Pieter Strycker (1653-1741), in 17 10 
bought a tract of four thousand acres in Somerset County, on 
which two of his sons and four of his grandsons settled ( 1 730-1 740). 
One of these grandsons (son of Jan, 1684-1770) was Abraham 
(1715-1777), who removed to New Jersey in the spring of 1740. 
He was the father of Christoffel H. Strycker (1 761-1805) whose 
son Thomas J. Stryker (1800-1872) was one of the best known 
and most respected citizens of Trenton, where he held many 
public and private places of trust. He married a daughter of 
John Scudder, a descendant of Thomas Scudder, who is men- 
tioned in the annals of Salem, Mass., as early as 1653. 

Of this mingled Holland and New England ancestry, settled 
in America for two and a half centuries, was William Scudder 
Stryker, born in Trenton, June 6, 1838* He was graduated at 
Princeton College in 1858, and immediately began studying law, 
but when President Lincoln's first call for troops came, the young 
law student abandoned everything in his eagerness to respond 
to his country's summons, and enlisted as a private, April 16, 
1 86 1, his company being ordered on special duty the same day. 
He served three months at this time. In the summer of 1862 he 
assisted in the organization of the Fourteenth Regiment, New 
Jersey Volunteers. He was commissioned Paymaster, with the 
rank of Major, February 19, 1863, and ordered to Hilton Head, 
S. C. A service more congenial to his martial spirit was opened 
to him when he was made Major and Aide-de-Camp on the staff 
of Major-General Quincy A. Gillmore, July 8, 1863, then in com-

66 Gen. William Scudder Stryker. [April 

S. C. Here he participated in the capture of Morris Island, July 
10, 1863, and in the assaults on Fort Wagner. At a critical 
moment in one of these engagements he was dispatched with 
orders to a distant point. The way was swept by a storm of 
shot and shell from the rebel batteries, but the gallant young 
officer calmly galloped through it all, delivered his message, and 
returned in safety. Thousands on both sides watched breath- 
lessly that dauntless rider. Years after, at an Army reunion, an 
officer told General Stryker that he and others who beheld with 
straining eyes that wonderful braving of almost certain death 
never believed it possible that he could win his way through the 
fierce hail that hurtled across his path. Another fearful ex- 
perience was the bloody night attack on Fort Wagner, on July 18, 
1863. He was one of the few surviving officers who had the 
pleasure of witnessing the unveiling, thirty years after, of that 
superb statue erected in Boston in memory of Col. Robert G. 
Shaw, who fell in the van of that attack with his heroic colored 
regiment. On account of illness contracted in the arduous 
service in the siege of Charleston he was transferred to the Pay- 
master's Department at Columbus, Ohio. On the way he stopped 
at Washington to deliver messages to the President. Mr. Lincoln 
was greatly interested in the handsome young officer, and began 
to question him about some of his experiences and observations, 
when suddenly he saw him reel in faintness. He caught him in 
his arms, laid him on a lounge, sent for and applied restoratives, 
and ministered to him with all the tender sympathy of a woman, 
until he recovered sufficiently to return to his hotel. Gen. Stryker 
retired from the army in June, 1866, with the rank of Brevet- 
Lieutenant-Colonel, and again took up his residence in his native 
city. He was appointed Adjutant-General of New Jersey, April 
12, 1867, and by successive appointments, of various governors, 
of different politics, he was continued until his death in the office 
he so highly adorned. In 1S74 he was commissioned Brevet- 

Immediately upon assuming his position as Adjudant-General, 
he set about perfecting the war records of New Jersey, and in 
1872 issued a stout octavo volume containing lists of officers and 
men of New Jersey in the Revolutionary War — the pioneer work 
of the kind in America. In 1876 he brought out two large quarto 
volumes of 1930 pages, giving the rosters and details of service of 
Jerseymen in the Civil War. For many years he had been revising 
and adding to the Revolutionary lists, and had also compiled 
records of the service of Jerseymen in the Colonial Wars, the 
Whiskey Insurrection of 1794, the War of 181 2, and the Mexican 
War, all of which he hoped to have printed this year. In 1898 he 
published a most admirable and exhaustive narrative of the Battles 
of Trenton and Princeton, which at once took a high rank among 
the histories of famous battles. His separate monographs on 
historical subjects number a score or more, each and all exhibiting 
the true spirit of historical research, as well as a pleasing literary 
style. In 1899 Princeton University conferred upon him the 
honorary degree of LL.D,

William Chadsey, a native of Wales, was born May 24 1602-

His name Chad, from the Saxon word Cyte, meaning "a cot 
age, and Sey "near the water or sea," hen^e, <<a cottafe by the 
sea. All names may be supposed to have had some peculia?

significance or appropriateness either to the person, location of 
residence or business. Thus, William from the Belgic Guildhelm, 
reads "harnessed with a guilded helmet," or, from Welhelm, "the 
shield or defence of many." Chadwick, from the Saxon Cyte and 
Wye, "a bay, harbor, shelter, mansion or castle." Hence, "a cot- 
tage by the harbor or sheltered place." 

Chertsey and Chedsey are synonymous. Chad and Chaun are 
identical. Hence we may read William Chadsey "was a shelter 
or defence to his cottage or mansion by the water or sea." 

That William Chadsey's progenitors came to England with 
William the Conqueror in or about 1066, is not to be doubted; 
that Chauncey De Chauncey and William De Chauncey came 
from Amiens, in Picardy, and that they settled in Yorkshire, are 
historical facts, as also that the latter purchased the Manor of 
Serpenbeck in York of Odo Ballistras, who held it by gift from 
King William. 

This William De Chauncey lived with his son Walter in the 
reign of Henry I., 1125, was styled a Baron Serpenbeck. William, 
son of John, was heir to his grandfather Walter. " His body was 
of delicate form, adorned with a beutiful aspect, and merry 
countenance; he was endowed with great wit, and a fluent tongue; 
a rare voice cultivated by skill in vocal music, which rendered 
him a great favorite, and acceptable to the King's domain." 

John, who was the son and heir of Sir William Chauncy of 
1479, married Margaret Gifford, and they had issue: William and 
Richard. William was educated at Corpus Christi, 1528. 

I have noted Richard's line five generations to 1660, bearing 
the name of their great-great-grandfather, spelled Chatsie, 
Chasey, Chadsey. I will here notice a few of the phonetic vari- 
ations of spelling this name from the Somerset House Records: 
Chauncy, Chauncey, Chaunsey, Chencey, Cheancy, Chatce, Chat- 
cey, Chatsie, Chatsee, Cheadsey, Chedsey, Chadsey, Chasey, 
Chadley, Chadsley, Chedle) T , Chebsey, Chadney, Chassey, etc. 

As descendants multiplied, names naturally lost their original 
accents through various dialects — only a few decades passed, 
found^many of kin estranged by name — a few of which we have 
mentioned above. 

Richard Chadsey of Somerset County, removed (most prob- 
ably) to Monmouthshire, then Wales, on account of religious 
persecutions, where the Church baptisms state that William 
Chadsey, son of Richard, was baptized May 24, 1692. 
1. William 1 Chadsey, b. 1692, the ancestor who came to the 
American Continent, and from whom all the family name in this 
country have descended, had a friendly leaning toward the Quaker 
Orthodox Church. He was a man of refined taste, and remark- 
ably polite character; whose word was as good as his bond, 
though from a sense of integrity he shrank from publicity. He 
was educated in Wales and conversant with the language, and 
was physically a Welshman, although his ancestors on his father's 
side were English of Norman descent. 

At the age of twenty-three, in July, 17 15, he left his native 
land, never to be heard from by his kindred, landed in Virginia

i 9 oi.] The Family of Dupuis, De Puy, Depew, Etc, J J 


By Frank J. Conkling, Brooklyn, N. Y. 

(Continued from Vol. XXXII., p. 56, of The Record.) 

Whether Nicholas and Francois Dupuis were refugees driven 
from their mother country, because of the religious persecutions 
of their times, may not be known. They came too early to be 
influenced by the "Revocation of the Edict of Nantes" (1685), 
which caused so much terror and destruction among the French 
Protestants. However, they were clearly Protestants, or they 
would not so readily have associated themselves with the reformed 
religion opened to them in the Dutch province, where they arrived 
but a short time before New Netherland fell into the hands of 
the English, and New Amsterdam became the city of New York. 

Colonel Henry D. Teetor, a reputable genealogist, whp has 
delved deeply among the ancient Norman records of historic 
France, has discovered a very desirable ancestry for the family 
of Dupuis. While not perfecting a lineage down to either Nich- 
olas or Francois, he makes their descent from noble blood seem 
very plausible* He starts off with Raphael DuPuy an officer of 
high rank to Emperor Conrad in 1033, who afterwards appointed 
him Governor over vast estates. His son, Hughes DuPuy, for 
brilliant military service at the Crusades in the Holy Lands, was 
granted the sovereignty of the Villa d'Acre. He was accom- 
panied to the Crusades by his wife and three sons, from whom 
the Colonel finds lineal descendants among "Chevaliers, Seig- 
neurs, Generals, Barons, Knights, Cardinals, Archbishops, and 
Statesmen." He mentions the Nicholas Depuis of this article as 
the original American ancestor of Hon. Chauncey M. Depew. 
On this point the writer feels it his privilege to take issue with 
the Colonel, notwithstanding the meritorius work he has done, in 
uncovering such a glorious ancestry of the old world. 

Francois, though probably the younger of the two, was the 
first to reach the shores of America. The earliest record, but 
one, we find of him is the publication of his bans, 26th August, 
1 66 1, in the Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam. This 
announcement of his coming marriage was a requirement of the 
times, and is valuable from the fact that the record is the only 
one found giving the place of his birth. As translated it reads:— 
"Francoys Dupuis, young man of Cales, France, and Geertje 
Willems, young daughter of Amsterdam." Just one month later 
they were married in Breuckelen, their marriage being the fifth 
of record in the Dutch church there, and is as follows: — " 26th 
September, 1661, Francois duPuis and Geertie Willems, with certi- 
ficate from Manhattans "f (New York). It is the belief of Bergen, 
the renowned historian of King's County, that the bride was the 

* In this paper, published in the April number, of " The Spirit ofjb," he does not mention 
Francois Dupuis, but claims that Nicholas, the emigrant of 1662, was of the lineage of a Nicho- 
las DuPuy, "Chevalier de Malti," who was killed at the "Battle of Faragosse" in i6«. He 
also gives as the first Protestant Huguenot of record bearing the family name, " General Charles 
DuPuy, Saighneur de Montbrun," a brave and distinguished officer, who was taken prisoner 
and beheaded August 12, 1575, a martyr to his religious convictions, 

t Holland Society Year Book, iSyj.

daughter of Willem Jacobse Van Boerum* of Flatbush, who came 
with his family, in 1649, from Amsterdam, Holland, where the 
register of bans tells us Geertje was born. 

The time of arrival of Nicholas Dupuis to this country can be 
very closely calculated. He shipped in October, 1662, in the 
vessel " Purmer land Church" and reached New Amsterdam prob- 
ably during that or the following month. A passenger listf 
furnished by O'Callaghan has him and his family thus: — "Nicho- 
las Du Pui from Artois, and wife and three children." Another 
list gives the ages of these children as six, five, and two years.J 
Two of these were undoubtedly John and Moses, who, after 
growing to man's estate, settled in Richmond and Ulster Coun- 
ties respectively. The wife of Nicholas Dupuis, and no doubt 
the mother of all of his children, was Catharina de Vos. An 
interpretation of the latter name is "The Fox." Those who are 
familiar with the satirical epic entitled: "Reynard the Fox,"§ or 
as published in the Low German dialect in the sixteenth century: 
"Reynke de Vos," will appreciate the adaptable manner of the 
Dutch clergyman, who only followed the familiar custom of the 
people of his country, in entering upon his baptismal register 
(Doop-Book) the nickname "Reynarts" or "Reynards" as a sub- 
stitute for deVos, all of which names were variously given her. 

Nicholas and his family seem to have first settled on the 
"Herren Graft" (Broad Street) of new Amsterdam. || Early in 
the year following their arrival, he and his wife were admitted 
as members of the Reformed Dutch Church. The spring had 
hardly opened when he made application, with several of his 
friends, for a plantation on Staten Island, which was granted 
March 19, 1663.^ This plantation appears to have continued in 
the family for some years after the death of both Nicholas and his 
wife, probably falling to John, who was a resident of Staten Island, 
and administered upon the estate of his mother, at her death in 
1705,** she having survived her husband by some fourteen years. 

It is uncertain whether Nicholas ever himself occupied the 
Staten Island grant, if he did, it must have been but for a brief 
period, as his foot-marks seem continually turned in other 
directions. He was yet a resident of New Amsterdam, just 
changed to New York, when, in October, 1664, Nicholas swore 
allegianceff to the King of Great Britain. The following year he 
was appointed "Beer and Weigh-house Porter," J \ a rather im- 
portant position of the time, from which office he may have 
realized sufficient to aid him in paying for a lot he had purchased 
on Prince Street in i66y.§§ He joined Captain Cornells Steen- 
wyck's company of militia in 1673,11 and in 1674 paid taxes on his 

* Willem Jacobse van Boerum was born in 1617, and died prior to 1698. His wife was 
Geertje Hendrickse. They lived at New Lotts, L. 1. He was magistrate of the Town of Flat- 
bush for several years. His children were: — Hendrick, Jacob, Geertje, and Hillegond. "Geertje 
Willems from Amsterdam," who was a passenger of the "Beaver," a vessel arrived in New Am- 
sterdam during May, 1661, was probablv the daughter of Willem Jacobse, and later the wife of 
Francois Dupuis. t Doc. Hist. N. Y. S., Vol. III. Hoi Society Year Book, 1806.

Broad Street residence at a valuation of $2,500.* The assessor, 
probably an Englishman, made the mistake of entering Nicholas 
on his list as a "Dutchman." In further proof of his error, 
"Nicolas Dupuis and Catalina de Vos his wife," are entered on 
the membership register of the Reformed Dutch Church of New 
York as having been transferred to the French Church there. 
No date is given, but it was probably in the eighties, when the 
Protestant French were strong enough to establish a church of 
their own in the city. Within the next three years Nicholas and 
his family crossed over to Long Island and settled at New 
Utrecht, where, in 1677, he and his wife were members of the 
Dutch Church, f but later were entered as having removed to 
Bergen, New Jersey, the Dutch Church of which place admitted 
them to membership in 1682. 

Nicholas was unquestionably a stirring fellow, clearly a success 
from a business standpoint at least. We find him in 1676 and 
occasionly during the following seven years at Kingston, N. Y. 
He is mentioned among the court records^ of that place as being 
engaged in the fish packing business. The Hudson river prob- 
ably affording him the most profitable field for a good catch, thus 
accounting for his frequent visits to Kingston, which place be- 
came the home of his son Moses, about i68o.§ 

In 1685, Nicholas sold his portion of a tract of land, located in 
the present County of Rockland, || which he had previously pur- 
chased in company with Pieter Jacobse Marius. October 13th of 
this year he made his will,! in which he claimed New York City 
as his residence. He left his estate to his widow's management, 
and mentioned children, John, Moses, Aaron, Susanna and Nicho- 
las, in the order as given. In 1686 Nicholas was living on Beaver 
Street, when the records of the Dutch Church, New York, men- 
tion "Catalina de Vos," his wife (so named), as a member. Her 
church relationship with the Dutch probably being more congenial 
than with the French, which latter church probably returned her 
letter within a year from the time she joined. Nicholas died in 
1 69 1, and his remains were probably buried from the Beaver 
Street home. His children are more particularly given as follows. 
The baptisms noted are all from the records of the Reformed 
Dutch Church of New York, as published in this periodical. 

1. John, born about 1655, married first, Elizabeth Tysen, whose 
widower he was, when in 1692,** he was betrothed to Geertruytje 
Jans of Kingston. Illicit discoveries however caused him to break 
this engagement, and he later married a Petroneltje somebody. 
According to Clute, in his "Annals of Staten Island" John was an 
inhabitant there in 1680. He was Sheriff of Richmond County, ff 
1698 to 1701, and was still a resident of the County in 1725, when 
he made his will. It was probated \\ June 14, 1 732, and mentioned 
his wife, Petronella; eldest son John, who was an invalid; sons:

Nicholas, Barent and Moses; daughters: Catharine (deceased), 
Magdalena, Susanna, Elizabeth and Petronella. Mr. Clute gives 
the baptism of Elizabeth as 2 2d October, 1707, and Moses, 2 2d 
July, 1 7 14. He also mentions Nicholas (son of John) and his wife, 
Neeltje Dekker, and gives them a daughter (not named) in 1724, 
John, 1725, Mathew, 1726, Nicholas, 1730, Moses, 1732, and Aaron, 


2. Moses, born about 1657, married about 1680, Maria Wyncoop, 
born in Albany in 1660, daughter of Cornells Wyncoop, who later 
settled at Kingston, where Moses Du Puy established his home 
for a time. Later we find him farther to the south and west, in 
the County of Ulster, where, in the towns of Marbletown and 
Rochester, he and his sons were substantial farmers, and among 
the foremost in upholding good government. In his old age 
Moses married again. The record, 16th October, 1724, credits 
him as the widower of Maria Wyncoop. His bride was Peter- 
neltje De Pree, widow of Marinus VanAken, "both living at 
Rochester." The Kingston Dutch Church Records (published) 
gives Moses eleven children, all by his first wife as follows: 
Mareitje, baptised April 24, 1681, Nicolaes, December 3, 1682, 
Catharina, April 6, 1684, Magdalena, March 14, 1686, Cornells, 
January 8, 1688, Catrina, May 25, 1690, Moses, September 27, 1691, 
Benjamin, October 13, 1695, Susanna, January 9, 1698, Catharina, 
November 30, 1701, Jacobus, September 19, 1703. He probably 
also had a son Johannes, who married December 26, 1725, Sara 
Van Steenberg. Marriage records of the other sons of Moses are 
as follows: Nicholas De Puy and Weyntjen Roosa, March 22, 1707, 
Cornells De Puy and Catrina Van Aken, May 6, 17 13, Moses De 
Puy and Margrietje Schoonmaker, February 14, 17 16, Benjamin 
De Puy and Elisabeth Schoonmaker, September 3, 17 19, Benjamin 
married 2d, December 13, 1735, Eicke Dewitt, Jacobus De Puy 
and Sara Schoonmaker, August 26, 1725. These five, and probably 
six sons of Moses, each head a separate lineage that may not be 
difficult to trace. This branch is represented among the early 
settlers of the Minisink Country, and along the Delaware in 

3. A child born to Nicholas about 1660. It was two years old 
when they reached America in 1662. It probably died young. 

4. Joseph, baptised February 5, 1663. He has no further 
record, probably never reached maturity. 

5. Aaron, baptised November 30, 1664. No record of him 
further than that his name appears in his father's will, 1685-1691* 

6. Magdalena, baptised February 16, 1667. No record. 

7. Susanna, baptised April 7, 1669, married(?)* before 1700, 
Obadias Winter; m. 2d(?)* about 1704, John Pamerton. 

8. Nicholas, baptised July n, 1670. "Nicolaes Depuis, Jr.," 
was sponsor at Kingston, May 25, 1690, but no further record, ex- 
cept the mention in his father's will. 

9. Paulus, baptised August n, 1675. Probably died young.

Communicated by Mr. Rufus King of Yonkers, New York. 


In the quiet and pictur- 
esque old town of Southold, 
on the eastern end of Long 
Island, a little book has been 
drifting around from one 
resting place to another, for 
p more than two hundred 
O years, and is now, in an ex- 
*■"" cellent state of preservation, 
in the possession of a de- 
scendant of the family whose 
record it contains. 

The book is about seven 

inches long and three inches 

~ s *"" wide, bound in black leather 

and had originally two brass clasps; the handwriting is clear and 

very legible. On the first page is the inscription: "Samuel King 

Owner of this Book, 1674." 

The records following relate to the descendants of this Samuel 
King who was born in England about 1633, and died in Southold 
29 Nov., 1721; he was the second son of William Kinge, born 
about 1595, who with his wife Dorothy and five children sailed 
from Weymouth, Dorsetshire, England, 20 March, 1635, and 
settled at Salem, Mass., the same year. 

Samuel King just mentioned was at Southold as early as 1650; 
the account of his posterity is given in the book in quaint and 
characteristic style and is herein repeated verbatim et literatim. 

In reading these records, it should be remembered that, 
previous to 1752, the legal year began on 25 March, which was 
called the first month, April the second month, etc., January the 
eleventh month, and February the twelfth month. Therefore, 
before 1752 an entry reading, say March 12, 1636 or 1636-7 would 
mean March 12, 1637, and so on of any date between January 1 
and March 25. 

The Record begins: 

"Samuel King his booke written in the 10 mon Ano 1674 
On the next page is a cure for the gout and then follow these 

Samuell King married about the 27 th yeare of his age, October 
the 10 th Ano Dom. 1660. 

My first childe William was borne ye 10 th of January 1661. 
My second childe Dorothy borne ye eleventh of July 1664. 
"My third childe Hanah borne ye 26th of January 1666."

Samuell King his wife 
Frransesf King departed 
this life January about 
the 14 da Ano 1692 being 
the 53 rd year of hear age 
or thereabouts. 

(Here follows in very 
beautiful handwriting 
the record of the family 
of Samuel King, Jr.). 

"Samuel King, Jun. 
was married ye i 8t of 
Jany ano Domini 1697 
being in the 22 nd yeare

yeare of his Wife Han- 

Samuell King, Jun er 
Departed this Life the 6 
day of May in the 51 
fifty first yeare of his 
age and yeare 1725' 

(The above entry of 
the death of Samuel 
King, Jr., is in a different 
handwriting but now 
follows the same hand- 
writing as the record of 
his marriage and con- 
tinues through the entry 
of the death of his wife 
Hannah Aug. 12, 17 12.) 

"My i !t son Samuell 
King born ye 20 th of 

* Mary King became the wife of John Gardiner, third proprietor of the Manor of Gardiner s 
Island; she died 4 July, 1707, aged 37, and is buried in the East Hampton graveyard, bne is 
erroneously described as the daughter of William King in the Gardiner Pedigree in Holgate s 
Genealogies. .,...,, , ,, c- j -t 

t Frances, the wife of Samuel King, was the daughter of William, and wife 
Clemence of Southampton, L. I., and formerly of Matlock in Derbyshire, England.

(Here follows in another handwriting nine entries, the first 
seven are doubtless those of the births of children named Booth 
and probably the offspring of Hannah King and Captain William 
Booth; on this point see Moore's Indexes of the Town of Southold, 
under Booth.)

(At this point the following entry appears.) 

"Margaret Corey (who married to Willoby Lindsf) was born 
June 22 nd 1 7 14 and She Died the 23 of December 1789." 

(Another change of handwriting now takes place; it is bold 
and very legible, and probably that of John King whose family 
record it gives as follows.) 

"March ye 14 day 1754 John King and Abigail Brown were 
married — and our first Child was born January y e 6, 1755 And our 
second child John was born March ye 14, 1756. 

Our third child Gilbert was born July ye 16, 1758. 

Our forth child Rufus was born September ye 3 d , 1760. 

* John King was married, probably, not in 1726 but in 1724, as he was about 25 years old in 
that year, having been born, as the record has already stated, 15 July, 1609. This last men- 
tioned date is in harmony with the inscription on his gravestone, which describes him as Ensign 
John King, and as having died 28 June, 1753, in the 54th year of his age. In further confirmation 
the Salmon Record contains the following entry under marriages: "John King and Mary 
Corey June 25, 1724." 

t Willougby Lynde was the son of Nathaniel Lynde of Saybrook, Conn., b. 22 Nov., 1659, 
d. 5 Oct., 1729, and wife Susannah Willoughby, b. 19 Oct., 1664. 

The entry of Margaret Corey's marriage in the King Family Record seems to indicate that 
she was a near relative, perhaps a sister, of Mary Corey who married Ensign John King ; it is 
also a suggestive fact that this John King had a great-grandson Lynde King, b. 6 July, 1702 ; 
his gravestone at Orient reads : " Capt. Lyndes King, died Oct. 18, 1854, aged 62 years and ^ 
months." He was the son of Nathaniel King, Jr., whose wife was Mehitable Tuthill, and 
grandson of Major Nathaniel King whose wife was Experience Young.

Up to this point, everything contained in the book has been 
given, but later family records follow and also several pages 
describing boundaries of lands in Southold, owned by Samuel 
King, Sr. These particulars may be made the subject matter of 
a future communication to the Record.

(Question-marks and Italics are the transcriber's.) 

The original, of which the following pages are verbatim ex- 
tracts, is now in the possession of the Westchester Co. Historical 
Society at White Plains, N. Y., and we are indebted to the courtesy 
of Mr. Edward Myers and Mr. William A. Woodworth, both of 
that place, for the privilege of copying and publishing these 
records. The town of Southeast, now in Putnam County, N. Y., 
was formed (according to the Civil List), March 17th, 1795, from 
Frederickstown and Southeast Town, both of which at that time 
were within the confines of Dutchess County, and remained so 
until June 12th, 181 2, when Putnam County was formed by act 
of Legislature. Kent's Parish was located in what was known 
as East Philippi, which is now in the town of Southeast. _ Up to 
1808 the denomination of the church was congregational in form 
but was attached to the Presbytery of Hudson. April, 1809, the 
church asked and received dismission from that body, and on 
the 20th of that month, at a meeting held in Goshen, Conn., 
joined the Consociation of the Eastern part of Fairfield County, 
Conn. The volume of records is a small book with leather 
cover, well preserved, but not systematically arranged. All the 
matter of importance will be given in this article; the omitted 
portion being the proceedings of the Elders in relation to sins of 
omission and commission on the part of offending members of the 
congregation. The Mr. Kent referred to on the first page was 
Rev. Elisha Kent, grandfather of James Kent, sometime Chan- 
cellor of New York State,

By L. Hasbrouck von Sahler. 

Robert Sedgwick, the founder of the family in America, was 
of much prominence in his adopted country. He was born 
in 161 1, and was a son of William Sedgwick, a warden of St. 
Mary's Church, at Woburn, in Bedfordshire, England, and his 
wife, Elizabeth Howe; and his ancestry can be traced in the 
North of England to the fourteenth century. He received some 
military training in the London artillery, and his environment 
made him an Independent in religion. In 1636, after his father's 
death, he came to New England, with the Puritan settlers, and on 
the third of June he was admitted an inhabitant of progressive 
Charlestown, Massachusetts, where he established himself as a 
successful merchant; and on the ninth of March, 1636, he was 
made a freeman of the colony, and chosen captain of the Charles- 
town militia. The same year, and also in 1638, 1644, 1648 and 
1649, he was chosen deputy from Charlestown to the general 
court at Boston, and in 1643, he was one of the selectmen. He 
assisted in the formation of the famous ''Ancient and Honorable 
Artillery Company," of Boston, and was chosen its captain, in 
1641, 1645 and 1648. During this time he commanded a fortress 
on the island, in Boston harbor, where Fort Independence now 
stands, and took charge of the fortifications of the town and 
harbor. In 1652 he was chosen major-general of the colony. 
Previously he had been chosen sergeant-major of the first regi- 
ment of Essex County, and trained his men with so much credit 
that their appreciation was shown by the gift of a piece of land. 
His military duties did not prevent his successful attendance to 
his private affairs, and both alone and with others, he built ships, 
wharves, warehouses and a tide mill in Charlestown; and at Lynn, 
was associased with John Winthrop, Jr., in the establishment of

the first iron furnace and works in New England. His land 
holdings were considerable. In 1642 he aided in setting off that 
part of Charlestown called the "Village," and it was named 
"Woburn" in honor of his birthplace. He was interested in the 
building of a new meeting house and of a school at Charlestown, 
and gave to Harvard college, then just starting on its long and 
honorable career. Early in 1654, when General Sedgwick went 
on a visit to England, his abilities displayed in the new world 
caused Cromwell, whom Sedgwick greatly admired, to appoint 
him and Captain John Leverett to take charge of an expedition 
against the Dutch settlements at New Amsterdam (New York) 
and up the Hudson river, but peace being temporarily restored 
between the Netherlands and Great Britain, arrangements for 
that campaign were dropped, and Cromwell turned his attention 
to the French at Acadia (Nova Scotia), and in July, 1654, General 
Sedgwick took the forts of St. John and Port Royal, with credit, 
and on the second of September fortified Penobscot surrendered 
to him. These successes caused the general court of Massa- 
chusetts Bay to appoint a public and solemn thanksgiving. 
Shortly afterwards Cromwell dispatched him with a fleet to the 
lately captured island of Jamaica, to assist the troops under 
Generals Penn and Venables, and after Major-General Fortescue's 
death he appointed him to take charge of the army stationed 
there, with the rank of major-general. This was his last honor, 
as he died suddenly at Jamaica, on the twenty-fourth of May, 
1656, and his death was a great loss to all associated with him, 
and deeply regretted. The Charlestown homestead was in the 
Market Place, and stood on, or near, the present site of the 
Bunker Hill National bank, but some years before his death, he 
removed his family to another homestead at Boston, on Wash- 
ington street, and part of the site of the present Old Corner book- 
store. If General Sedgwick left a will, it could not be found, 
and his estate was administered on the thirteenth of September 
of that year. In 1657, his widow, Johanna Sedgwick, was living 
at Stephney, near London. 

As is well known, many of the Puritans were very narrow- 
minded, and were unwilling to give, when they were in power, 
to others, the religious and other liberties, that they had con- 
demned England for not giving to them, but Robert Sedgwick did 
not belong to that class, as he showed a kindliness of heart, and 
faith in his Creator, that tempered his whole life, and together 
with his abilities, won the admiration and respect of those asso- 
ciated with him, and I regret that I am unable to devote more 
space to such a man owing to the fact that in this brief paper I 
must also write of his descendant, Judge Theodore Sedgwick, 
who was the first of the family in Berkshire County, and who 
inherited, without question, many of his distinguished ancestor's 
characteristics and abilities. 

Theodore Sedgzvick was born in May, 1746, at Hartford, Conn., 
and through the affection of his younger brother, John Sedgwick, 
later a major-general in the Revolutionary army, he was partially 
educated at Yale College. The father had died young. Theology

and law both interested him, but he finally decided to study the 
latter and entered the law office of Colonel Mark Hopkins, a 
distinguished citizen of Great Barrington, Mass., grandfather of 
President Mark Hopkins of Williams' College, and was admitted 
to the Berkshire bar in September, 1765, when he commenced to 
practice his profession at Great Barrington, but he did not meet 
with the success that he wished, and so he soon removed to 
Sheffield, which town he represented in the general court, both 
before and after the Revolution, and where he obtained a large 
practice. Mr. Sedgwick remained loyal to British rule until he 
was fully convinced of its injustice, when he took a decided and 
active stand for independence. In 1774, a convention of sixty 
delegates, chosen by the towns of the county, met at Stockbridge 
to take some action on British oppression, and he was chosen 
clerk, and one of a "committee to take into consideration the 
Acts 'of the Parliament of Great Britain, made for the purpose 
of raising and collecting a revenue in America, and report their 
sense of them." At the beginning of the war he served for a 
time on the staff of General John Thomas, when that officer led a 
successful expedition to Canada, and on its return his cordial and 
appreciated friend (at that time), Aaron Burr, whose grandfather, 
Jonathan Edwards, was associated with the Stockbridge Indian 
Mission, urged him to accept the office of secretary and aid on 
the staff of General Israel Putnam, but instead, during the latter 
part of 1776, and throughout 1777, he was commissary for the 
northern department of the army, and his able discharge of the 
duties entitled him to much consideration. 

In 1785 he removed to Stockbridge — his third settlement in 
Berkshire County— and became the leading lawyer west of the 
Connecticut river, and occupied a prominent legal position in the 
adjoining counties of New York State. During 1786 and 1787 he 
was active in quieting the "Shays' Rebellion," and was the 
recipient of the rebels bitter dislike, as he did not approve of 
their misguided attempts for righting the wrong. Mr. Sedgwick 
was one of the delegates to the convention called to form the 
constitution for the Massachusetts commonwealth, and also for 
that which assisted in establishing the constitution of the United 
States. He was a member of the continental congress, and was 
continuously a member of either the house of representatives or 
senate in the first six congresses, and in the last he was speaker 
of the house. He was district attorney for Western Massachusetts, 
and later was attorney general for the commonwealth. He was 
twice a commissioner, to attempt the boundary settlement be- 
tween New York and Massachusetts. At the time of his death, 
in January, 1813, he was an associate justice of the supreme 
court of Massachusetts, which office he held eleven years, from 
1802. Washington offered him the important honor of secretary 
of the treasury after Hamilton's retirement, but he declined it; 
and he was also appointed a justice of the Massachusetts court of 
common pleas, but did not take his seat. One of the most impor- 
tant objects that interested Judge Sedgwick was American 
slavery, and his efforts toward their freedom was one of his

brightest honors. He was chairman of the committee that made 
the report to the house of the bill that later became the original 
fugitive slave law, and he was one of the earliest members of the 
Abolition Society of Pennsylvania, of which Franklin was presi- 
dent, and his influence resulted in freedom for the slaves of 
Massachusetts. He was a member of the American Academy of 
Arts and Sciences, and Princeton College conferred on him the 
degree of LL.D. In 1801, he retired from active public life, and 
his remaining years were occupied with the requirements of the 
state supreme court and his private affairs. Judge Sedgwick 
occupied a prominent place among the lawyers and statesmen of 
his day, and his strong love for right was the corner stone of his 
life, both in sympathies with the continental and federal periods. 
That he had enemies there is no denying, but surely he was not 
alone in that respect, and while his decisions on the subjects of his 
day may sometimes have been opinionated, it was because he fully 
believed that he was right. His eloquent and clear speeches on 
different subjects received much praise from distinguished con- 
temporaries, even outside his own party. In personality he was 
a gentleman in the true sense of the word, and of fine presence, a 
subtle blending of inherited and individual aristocracy and de- 
mocracy, and he undoubtedly felt that while an honorable ancestry 
should always be decidedly appreciated, it was simply a foundation 
on which to build the structure of his life work, and that the more 
honorable the ancestry the more responsibility was inherited. 

Judge Sedgwick was first married to Eliza Mason, daughter 
of the elder Jeremiah Mason, who died within a year of their 
marriage; second to Pamela Dwight, daughter of Brigadier- 
General Joseph Dwight, and Abigail Williams Sergeant, former 
widow of John Sergeant, missionory to the Stockbridge Indians 
and sister of the founder of Williams' College, and third to Pene- 
lope Russell, daughter of Charles Russell, who survived him. 
His devotion to his family was one of his strong characteristics 
By his second marriage he was the father of ten children of 
whom three were lawyers of distinction. Theodore practiced' his 
profession at Albany and Stockbridge, author of a treatise on 
'Public and Private Economy," several times elected to the 
Massachusetts legislature, one of the founders of the Boston and 
Albany railroad, the commercial backbone of the state, and many 
times nominated for governor on the democratic ticket, before 
that party's state success. Henry Dwight, author of a pamphlet 
on the absurdities of the pleading and practice of common law 
which suggested much to David Dudley Field, who in the begin- 
ning of his distinguished career, was a partner of the New York 
law firm of Henry Dwight and Robert Sedgwick, the latter one of 
the three mentioned brothers. A fourth son, Charles was for 
many years county clerk of Berkshire. One of the daughters 
^Maria Sedgwick, the first American woman novelist, is probably 
best remembered of all the children. Her charming personality 
good influences, gracious hospitality, distinguished friends and 
clever writings, proved her to have been a remarkable woman 
Many of the descendants of Major-General Robert Sedgwick (or 

108 Onondaga County Records— 1791. [April, 

as some of the family have called him, "the governor," from his 
supreme command of Jamaica), have been people of especial 
ability and prominence, up to the present time, in many of the 
walks of life. The family are still represented in the old Judge 
Sedgwick mansion at Stockbridge, by Henry Dwlght Sedgwick, 
Esq., many years a lawyer in New York, and who possesses many 
of the Sedgwick characteristics. Judge Sedgwick and many of 
his descendants are buried in the interesting Sedgwick burial 
ground at Stockbridge, where a noticeable gravestone is that of 
Mumbet, a slave, whose freedom was due to the Judge's interest, 
and who showed her appreciation, by devotion to his family, 
during the remainder of her life.

In this year the tide of pioneer immigration into the Onondaga 
country began, and the military claims, being now located, 
assumed a definite value. At the creation of Herkimer 
County the newly-opened region was included within its 
limits. Among the immigrants the ex-soldiers holding land- 
patents hardly appeared. Their attitude toward pioneer 
effort is shown by the rapid increase of transfers by which 
they divested themselves of title. The genealogical value of 
the records is now enhanced by the more frequent addition of 
the residence to the description of the veteran grantor, and 
by the increase of acknowledgments which show precisely 
the whereabouts of the grantor at specific times.

chiefly from three brothers, Thomas, Joshua and David, and their 
cousin Isaac Crosby (whose wife was a sister of Mary Foster the 
wife of David Paddock), who moved from Harwich, Barnstable 
County, Mass., 1749-1756, and settled at Southeast and Carmel, 
Putnam County, N. Y. Freeman's History of Cape Cod gives 
the early history of the family, and Pelletreau's History of Put- 
nam County carries the record down to Enoch Crosby (otherwise 


112 Crosby Families. [April, 

known as " Harvey Birch " in Cooper's novel, The Spy), and his 
descendants. This article deals more particularly with David 
Crosby and his descendants. 

David Crosby was born at Harwich, Mass., April 13, 1709. 
He was son of John and Hannah Crosby, grandson of Rev. 
Thomas and Sarah Crosby, and great-grandson of Simon Crosby, 
of Cambridge, Mass. June 19, 1735, he married Reliance Hopkins, 
daughter of Samuel and Lydia Hopkins, granddaughter of Stephen 
and Mary (Merrick) Hopkins, great-granddaughter of Gyles and 
Katherine (Wheldon) Hopkins, he a passenger with his father, 
Stephen Hopkins, on the "Mayflower" 1620. Lydia Hopkins, a 
sister of Reliance, was wife of Joshua Crosby, and Elizabeth 
Hopkins, a cousin of Reliance and Lydia, was wife of Thomas 
Crosby, brothers of David Crosby. In 1749 David Crosby and 
family moved to Putnam (then Dutchess) County, N. Y., and 
settled on what was known as the Oblong, in Southeast, where he 
died October 20, 1793. His tombstone and that of his wife are 
still standing in the Sear's Burying Ground at Southeast, his 
being of white marble, with angel's face and wings at top, and 
bearing the inscription: "In Memory of David Crosby the Elder 
who departed this life Oct. 20th 1793 in the 85th year of his age," 
and hers of slate stone: "In Memory of Mrs Reliance Crosbey 
wife of Mr David Crosbey, who departed this life Feb 25th 1788 in 
the 75th year of her age." They had, certainly, four children, 
and probably seven, as follows: 

1. David 8 Crosby, Jr., b. 1737, Harwich, Mass.; d. Nov. 16, 

1816, Southeast, N. Y. 
Susannah Crosby, b. 1740, Harwich, Mass. 
Reliance Crosby, b. 1742, Harwich, Mass. 

2. Abner Crosby, b. Dec. 25, 1744; d. May 5, 1813. 
Sarah Crosby (prob.), b. at Southeast. 

Eli Crosby (prob.), b. about 1749; m. Rebecca Sears. He 

served in the 3d N. Y. Regt. during the Revolution, 

and d. Nov. 22, 1827. 
Moses Crosby (prob.), b. about 1755; m. (1) Polly ; 

(2) Abigail Foster. He also served in the 3d N. Y. 

Regt. during the Revolution, and d. July 2, 182 1. 
1. David' Crosby, Jr., b. 1737, Harwich, Mass., took an active 
part in the affairs of the town of Southeast. He was assessor of 
Fredericksburg Precinct 1774-6, 1788-90, and church moderator 
1784. He was a Mason, as shown by the following record of the 
first Masonic meeting at Southeast: "At a meeting of a number 
of the fraternity of Masons, members of different Lodges, whose 
names are as follows: David Crosby, . . . Eli Crosby, . . . 
Peter Crosby, . . . who are inhabitants of Frederickstown, in 
the County of Dutchess, and towns adjacant, . . . the 5th day 
of Dec. 1793, and in the year of light 5793." "Brother David 
Crosby was appointed moderator of the meeting." "Voted: that 
Bro. Crosby, moderator of this meeting, be empowered to make 
application for the warrant above mentioned" (a warrant to erect 
a Lodge at Frederickstown). "On return of 'Columbia Lodge' 
in 1798, the following list of members is given . . . David

in the Dutchess County Militia, Dykeman's Company, Third 
Regiment, Col. John Field, in which regiment there appear the 
names of fourteen Crosbys; his uncle, Joshua Crosby, was on 
June 22, 1778, first lieutenant of the company from Pawling's 
Precinct, Dutchess County, in Col. Field's Regiment. Although 
his commission has not been found, he was known as Lieutenant 
David Crosby, Jr. He was twice married, and had at least seven, 
and perhaps twelve children. His first wife was Bethiah Paddock, 
who was born in Yarmouth, Mass., April 17, 1737, daughter of 
Peter and Sarah (Howes) Paddock (Zec/iarta/i, 3 Zechariah? 
Robert 1 ), of Yarmouth, Mass., and Southeast, N. Y.; she is buried 
in the Sear's Burying Ground at Southeast, the record of her 
death appearing on an old-fashioned, rudely cut granite stone, 
with an angel face and wings, as follows: "In memory of Mrs 
Bethiah Crosby wife of Lieut David Crosby who Departed this 
Life July 2, 1776 M 41." (There is probably an error in the date 
on her tombstone.) Some of Bethiah (Paddock) Crosby's small 
silver spoons, marked " B. P.," are still in possession of her 
descendants. Nothing is known of his second wife, except that

County, N. Y., where he practiced his profession for many years 
and was a highly respected member of the community. He died 
April 10, 1841, and she March 12, 1853. At their marriage her 
father gave her half a dozen spoons which he had made from 
silver dollars, marked " D. H." for Deborah Hyatt, but upon her 
insisting that they be marked "D. C." another set was made. 
The "D. H." spoons were lost in a fire, but several of the "D. C." 
spoons remain in the family. Her "gold knobs" (earrings) are 
in possession of her granddaughter, Mrs. Mary Anne (Clough) 
Kimball, of Palo Alto, California. Dr. Hyatt is said to have 
served in the Revolutionary War, the family tradition being that 
his father had gone to the war, and Hezekiah being locked in his 
chamber, climbed out of the window and followed his father, 
both serving to the close of the war; that he received a slight 
wound, made by a bullet shooting a twig from a tree through the 
rim of his ear. Children:

We have received from Mr. Frank W. Haskell of Niagara Falls, N. Y., a 
pamphlet entitled "A Comprehensive System of Arrangement for Genealogical 
Records," and its receipt impels us to break forth again in discourse upon the 
subject, the importance of which appeals so strongly to the custodians of 
genealogical libraries and the editors of genealogical magazines. Sad to relate 
it is, that, if a treatise were compiled illustrating and discussing the many 
systems for genealogical notation already in use, it would fill a good sized 
volume. Experience of many years has taught us that the system long used 
by our honored friends of the New England Society and by ourselves— the 
system known as the "Record and Register Plan"— is the simplest, the most 
comprehensive and by all odds the best yet devised; and we have still to await 
an improvement upon it, which, when it comes, will receive our hearty com- 
mendation. Mr. Haskell's system involves all the important features of the 
" Record and Register Plan" and modifies but one of them. Instead of using 
consecutive personal numbers, these are made up of digits which represent the 
position each person held with regard to his brothers. For instance the founder 
of the family is number 1 and his first son is number II, while the first son's 
third son is number 113. ' Thus there are always as many digits in the personal 
number as the person is in generations from the progenitor, hence a descen- 
dant of the ninth generation will have for his personal number one composed 
of nine digits, for example 132415214. We contend therefore that this is cum- 
bersome, confusing, impractical, prodigal, and not to be compared with the 
other system, when even in a large work the descendants of the ninth generation 
will not have more than five digits, especially when personal numbers are 
assigned only to ancestors who are carried forward for further descent. Aside 
from this, Mr. Haskell's personal numbers show but two things, and these are 
to be found in another way: first the number of the generation (which is shown 
at the top of the page), and second the relative position of births, for instance 
number 1533 is of the fourth generation, and is the third son of 153. We do 
not therefore see that Mr. Haskell's "system" is any improvement, but on the 
contrary is not so good as the established plan; and so we cry with a loud voice, 
" Let's stick to the good old plan."

King, John Alsop, born in Jamaica, N. Y., July 14, 1817; died in New 
York, November 21, 1900. He was a grandson of Rufus King, U. S. Senator 
from New York, and Minister to Great Britain, and the second son of the late 
John Alsop King, Governor of New York. His boyhood was passed in Jamaica, 
where at the age of five years he entered the classical Union Hall Academy, 
leaving there at the age of fifteen to enter Harvard College in the Sophomore 
class. From this institution he was graduated with much credit at the age of 18. 
He became a clerk in a leading wholesale grocery establishment, in which he 
remained only a short time, being unwilling to conform to certain practices in 
mixing goods, which were customary. He then began the study of law, and 
was duly admitted to the Bar, practicing his profession in New York for 
several years. 

In 1839 he married Mary Colden Rhinelander, only daughter of Philip 
Rhinelander and Mary Hoffman. Shortly afterwards he passed some time in 
Europe, a residence there being several times repeated, and two winters in Egypt. 
In 1844, loving the country, he bought a point of land at Hallett's Point, Great 
Neck, L. I., on the Sound, built a house there, and made this his home during 
the remainder of his life, though for many years he passed his winters with his 
family in Washington, D. C, the refined society of which they enjoyed, and 
after the death of his wife in 1894, in New York. His bright, affable and 
courteous disposition soon won him friends among his neighbors, and of course 
led him to interest himself in the affairs of the town and county in which he had 
settled. Agricultural pursuits occupied much of his attention, and as a result he 
became an active member of the societies in Queens County. Having decided 
views on the political questions of the day, a hereditary Republican, he sought 
the promotion of its principles, for which he was rewarded by being made a 
president elector in 1872, and afterwards served in the Senate of New York 
for two years in 1874 and 1875. ^ n ^76 he was nominated in his district as a 

1 1 8 Obituary. [April, 

member of the House of Representatives of the U. S., but was defeated, his 
district being strongly democratic. Again in 1880, he was nominated for 
Congress, meeting with the same result. From that time, through to the day of 
his death, he continued deeply interested in the welfare of his country; but he 
was no longer prominent in politics, devoting himself to other and congenial 

With' strong conscientious convictions, and a love for the church in which 
he had been brought up, and whose teachings he continued through life to 
accept, the Protestant Episcopal Church, he at once sought to foster the 
church in his neighborhood at Little Neck, L. I., becoming in time one of its 
wardens, and giving his thought and time quietly, but heartily, to secure its 
welfare. When in later years a new parish was formed at Great Neck, he and 
his family were among the warmest and most active advocates and promoters 
of its welfare, and in every way he contributed largely to its growth and 
present prosperity, being a church warden until his death. Bishop Littlejohn, 
of the Diocese of Long Island, thus sums up his sphere of work: "The ideal 
warden of his parish, for many years a member of the Missionary committee, 
and of the chapter of the Cathedral of the Incarnation, a trustee of the Episco- 
pal fund, and of the aged and infirm clergy fund; a manager of the church 
Charity Foundation— all these in the Diocese of Long Island— a trustee of the 
General Theological Seminary, one of the board of managers of the Domestic 
and Foreign Missionary Society, a delegate to nine successive General Con- 
ventions, a trustee of King Hall, Washington D. C, of which he was the founder 
and fosterer, for the higher education of the colored race." 

His sympathy and active help in other directions, among others, the wel- 
fare of the blind, were felt, but so quietly and unobstrusively that their existence 
were only known by the benefit conferred. At the time of his death he was a 
member of the Harvard Club, of the St. Nicholas Society, of the Metropolitan 
Museum of Art, of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, and 
President, from 1887 to 1900 inclusive, of the New York Historical Society. Of 
the last he was devoting himself to the promotion of its purposes and earnestly 
seeking to secure a new building for the preservation of its valuable library 
and fine collection of portraits and other treasures. 

His character and relations to that Society were admirably summed up in 
the address delivered before its members, at its February meeting, 1901, by his 
successor as president, Rev. Eugene Hoffman, D.D., Dean of the General 
Episcopal Seminery. Such was his life: in all its relation from his youth up, 
he was conscientious, faithful and prudent in the performance of duties assumed 
or placed upon him, courteous and affable in manners, and a sincere Christian 
man. Rev. William Wilkinson, in his History of the General Convention of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church in 1898, says of him: "He has the profound re- 
spect of all the deputies from Maine to California; an upright man, of few 
words, but wise in judgment, devout in life, generous in gifts, and the soul of 
honor." J- G - w - 

Joseph Henry Petty, a former Librarian of this Society, and a friend of 
the institution for many years interested in its aims and objects, died at his 
home in Amityville, L. I., on Feb. 9th, last. He was a son of Ezekiel Petty, of 
"Aquebogue," L. I., and was born in New York City, Aug. 19th, 1826. Mr. 
Petty was educated in a private school in New York, and after a few years 
spent in the employ of a building firm of this city, became Clerk of the 
Suffolk Co. Surrogate's office under Judge Bradford. He served as Assembly- 
man and Senator in the Legislature of this State, and subsequently became a 
captain of the Metropolitan Police Force. In 1878 Mr. Petty removed to 
Amityville where he spent the remainder of his days, and occupied his time in 
the work of the local Board of Education of which he was President at the 
time of his death. Mr. Petty married in 1852 Caroline Van Buren, of Hacken- 
sack, N. J., by whom he had four children, two of whom are now living at 
Amityville, L. I.

Mexico, Feb. 6, 1901. The youngest son of Bishop Alonzo Potter, he was born 
in Schenectady, N. Y., Sept. 20, 1836. From Union College, N. Y., he received 
the Bachelor's degree in 1861. His theological degree was obtained from the 
Berkeley Divinity School in Middletown, Conn., in 1863. His life was spent as 
Associate-Rector, or Rector in several churches, and as Professor and President 
in Colleges and Universities. He declined the election to the Bishopric of 
Nebraska. In 1897, he accepted the Presidency of the Cosmopolitan Edu- 
cational University Extension, an Institution "designed to give University 
Instruction by means of correspondence courses." A widow and children 
survive. He became a member of our Society in 1900, and during that year 
read an interesting paper at one of its meetings. Robert Potter, his emigrant 
ancestor, came to New England in 1634. Previous to 1643, ne became a member 
of the church in Roxbury, Mass., but not being in harmony with their religious 
views, he betook himself to Rhode Island, where he remained, refusing "to 
heare the church who had lovingly sent after him." On account of his heretical 
opinions, he was for a time confined in Rowley, Mass. In his adopted state he 
held many positions of honor and trust, and it is recorded that he was " licensed 
to keep an ordinary or tavern in Warrick " in 1655. 


The first meeting of the year was held on the evening of Friday, January 
nth, and it being the annual meeting the reports of officers and committees for 
the preceding year were read, a resume of which will appear in the forth- 
coming year book. At the meeting the following Trustees were re-elected for 
the term 1901-1904: Henry R. Stiles, M.D., Thos. G. Evans, and Bowen W. 
Pierson. At the close of the business Gen. Joseph Wheeler gave a graphic 
description of the War in the Philippines. 

The February meeting was held on the evening of Friday the eighth, at 
which Mr. William Webster Ellsworth delivered a lecture on "The Personal 
Washington," illustrated by the stereopticon. The views showed portraits, 
autographs, account-books and views, all relating to Washington's private life. 

The third meeting was held on Friday, March 8th, and was the most fully 
attended of any meeting in the history of the Society. Mr. W. I. Scandlin of 
New York presented some rare views of New York and vicinity, made from 
photographs taken over fifty years ago. At the close of the lecture Mr. Isaac 
Townsend Smith moved a resolution of thanks for the services of the retiring 
President, Gen. James Grant Wilson, which was unanimuosly carried and 
ordered spread on the minutes. The officers of the Society, elected by the 
Board of Trustees for the year 1901, will be found on the insert at the end of 
this issue.

We learn from Charles G. Sommers' Memoir (1835) of the Rev. John 
Stanford, D.D., who was Chaplain to the Humane and Criminal Institutions of 
New York City, born 1754, died 1834, that Dr. Stanford left a manuscript 
volume containing important facts relating to the history of New York which 
he presented to the Common Council of New York. He also left several diaries 
which, with the other manuscript have never been found, though Mr. Somers 
searched diligently for them. If any one can give information regarding their 
present whereabouts, the same will be gladly received by this Society.

Descendants of Robert Green and allied Families in the State 
of Virginia. By Holdridge Ozro Collins, of Los Angeles, California. 8vo, 
pp. 12. 

Genealogy of the Washington Family. Compiled by Holdridge 
Ozro Collins. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 15. 

The first of these titles is a reprint from the Virginia Magazine of History 
and Biography, July, 1900, et seq., and gives the descendants of the Robert 
Green of St. Mark's Parish, Virginia, who came from England in 1712. Of his 
seven sons the pamphlet under discussion gives the families of Duff, 3d son, 
three generations; John, 4th, two generations; Nicholas, 5th, one generation; 
and closes with a sketch of the Ballance family, a son of which married Joyce, 
daughter of Nicholas Green. 

The second title by Mr. Collins was published by the California Soc. Sons 
of the Rev., of which he is president. It covers the same ground that Mr. 
Henry F. Waters covered in his "An Examination of the English Ancestry of 
George Washington," etc., 1889, but gives some added details in connection 
with the allied families, the Reades, the Martians, the Warners, and the Balls. 

Wakeman Genealogy, 1630-1899. By Robert P. Wakeman, Meriden, 
Conn. The Journal Pub. Co., 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 434. 

To the Wakeman family the compiler announces that his book is very far 
short of what a good and complete history of the family should be. To this 
and other families we announce that the perfection he grieves over is beyond 
the reach of most all compilers; and we therefore have to say "This much is 
well done and we thank thee for it." This volume, compiled with care and 
affectionate interest, is a history of the descendants of Samuel Wakeman of 
Hartford, Ct.; and of John Wakeman, Treasurer of the New Haven Colony, 
with a few collaterals included. The English researches have been carried on 
by means of a fund contributed by various members of the family, and by the 
personal efforts of Dr. Emory McClintock of this city, a member of the family 
who has been much interested in the compilation of this work. Inconsequence 
there are many pages relating to the English ancestry which contain matter of 
much interest derived from wills, court records and other data. Samuel 
Wakeman of Hartford, was a son of Francis, of Bewdley, Worcestershire, Eng., 
according to this volume, and came to New England in Nov., 1631. Ten years 
later he was killed with Capt. Pierce in the Bahamas, and left one son Esbun, 

1 90 1.] Book Notices. I 2 I 

and three daughters. According to Savage, this son, Esbun, died in 1683 
leaving only a daughter, who married Thomas Hill, and thus the male line of 
his branch ended. John Wakeman, Treasurer of New Haven Colony, was a 
brother of Samuel of Hartford, and consequently a son of Francis of Bewdley, 
Eng. The volume is concerned more particularly with the descendants of 
John, and of his public services; and its voluminuos contents, its sensible, 
serviceable binding, its good print and heavy paper, its many illustrations, as 
well as the thorough indexes, commend the volume to genealogists and to 
descendants of this family. 

Hoge Genealogy, from the first of the name in this country to 
the present time, with a number of allied families and many 
historical facts. Compiled by Orlando John Hodge. Boston. Rockwell & 
Churchill, 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 455. 

Col. Hodge commenced this work in 1876, and, notwithstanding his arduous 
duties as an editor and public man, has brought it to a successful conclusion, 
and presented it in a form that puts both his kinsmen and the genealogical 
world much in his debt. Mr. Hodge has had a long and eventful career from 
the day he enlisted for service in the Mexican War to the present; one that has 
taken him to many lands including Africa, Hawaii and Alaska, as well as the 
continent; one that has called him to serve in the courts, in the legislative halls 
of his city and his state, and in the editorial chair of a city newspaper. His 
services, his experiences, the character of his labors, have all qualified him to 
compile his family history accurately, methodically, and as thoroughly as any- 
one else could do it. And the result is a most pleasing volume of family history 
conveniently arranged, well printed, well edited, well indexed, serviceably and 
tastefully bound. Its contents carry the family descent from John Hodge, of

Levi and Andrew Hodge, and the Hodge families of Northern New England, 
Philadelphia, Lansingburgh, Pa., North Carolina, Mississippi, New Hampshire,

grateful. Copies may be had of the author at Cleveland, Ohio. 

Genealogical and Historical Notes on Culpeper County, Vir- 
ginia. Embracing a revised and enlarged edition of Dr. Philip 
Slaughter's History of St. Mark's Parish. Compiled and published by 
Raleigh Travers Green, Culpeper, Va., 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 300. Price, $5.00. 

The inception of this volume was a demand for a revised edition of Dr. 
Slaughter's History of St. Mark's Parish, and it was the intention of the pub- 
lisher to confine himself to that work and so produce a volume of about 150 
pages. So much information was sent to him after advertised requests how- 
ever, that the publisher decided to give it out to the public and hence the 
volume grew to twice its original size. The families included in its pages are 
as follows: Ashby, Ball, Barbour, Boaddus, Brown, Browning, Bryan-Lillard, 
Carter, Cave, Clayton, Coldman, Conway, Cooke, Field, Fry, Garnett, Glassell, 
Green, Grinnan, Henry-Winston, Hill, Jones, Lillard-Bryan, Madison, Mason, 
Micou, Pendleton, Rice, Slaughter, Somerville, Spotswood, Strother, Taylor, 
Thorn, Thomas, Thompson, Williams, Winston-Henry, and Yancey. The 
volume is divided into two parts, the first containing a history of St. Mark's 
Parish, Culpeper Co., Va., with notes of old churches and families, and illustra- 
tions of the manners and customs of the olden time by Rev. Philip Slaughter, 
D.D., Rector of Emmanuel Church, Culpeper Co., Va. Part one also contains 
portrait and sketch of Dr. Slaughter. The second part contains a history of 
Culpeper County with much genealogical matter alphabetically arranged, and 
the marriage record from 1781-1825. Copies may be had of the publishers, 
who have also issued a volume on the Battle of Culpeper, by Maj. Dan'l A. 
Grimsley of the 6th Va. Cav., and are about to issue " Soldiers of the Revolution " 
in pamphlet form.

Memorial of St. Mark's Church in the Bowery. Published by the 
Vestry, New York. Thos. Whittaker, 2 & 3 Bible House. 1899. 8 vo, cloth. 

St. Mark's Church stands upon ground which is the oldest church site on 
Manhattan Island. The corner-stone of the present edifice, which has since 
been altered and ornamented, was laid on St. Mark's Day, Saturday, April 25th, 
1795, Bishop Provoost officiating. The ground previous to that time had been 
occupied by a chapel built prior to 1660 by Gov. Stuyvesant. This volume, 
containing a history of the church, was published on the occasion of the one 
hundredth anniversary of the dedication, and gives an account of the com- 
memorative services, sermons and addresses, biographies of the rectors, lists of 
wardens and vestrymen, treasurers, clerks, pewholders, assistant ministers, 
organists, sextons, memorial tablets, and other interesting data concerning this 
historic edifice. The book is beautifully illustrated with views of the church 
and portraits of its rectors, and may be had of the publisher. 

A Sketch of the Munro Clan, also of William Munro, who, 
deported from Scotland, settled in Lexington, Mass., and of some 
of his Posterity, together with a Letter from Sarah Munro to 
Mary Mason descriptive of the Visit of President Washington to 
Lexington in 1789. By James Phinney Munroe, 1900. Pub. by George H. 
Ellis, 272 Congress St., Boston. 8vo, boards, pp. 80. Price, seventy-five cents. 

The title of this volume sets forth its contents and we can only add that its 
compiler has issued it for the benefit of those not fortunate enough to possess a 
copy of his voluminous "History of the Munros" published in 1898, and now 
both scarce and high priced. He informs us that this "sketch" is in no sense a 
substitute for his larger work but is founded upon the latter, and "presents 
clearly the main points, emphasizing those of special interest to the American 
branches of the family." The book is finely printed in antique type upon laid 
paper, and is bound, in the early fashion, in boards with pasted labels. 

Genealogies of the Bingham Family in the United States, es- 
pecially of the State of Connecticut, including notes on the Bing- 
hams of Philadelphia, and of Irish Descent, with partial genealo- 
gies of Allied Families. Compiled by Theo. A. Bingham (Col. U. S. Army), 
Harrisburgh, Pa. Harrisburgh Pub. Co., 1898. 8vo, pp. 249. Paper, $4.50, 
cloth, $5.00. 

This comprehensive volume is the only one of the name of Bingham which 
we know of, and from its contents we would say that probably any American of 
that patronymic can find himself or some family connections. Special at- 
tention has been paid to the early fathers, including their connection with the 
old country, which the compiler has tried to make as accurate as possible. It

descent. Of the allied families it gives the genealogies of Rutherford Titon 
deLabeaume Grew, Johnson, Foote, Clarke, Whiting. The book is excellently 
printed on laid paper, well illustrated, and completely indexed. 

Ancestors and Descendants of Joseph Westcot Tinker 1618- 
1900. Compiled by Frederick James Libbie. Printed privately. Boston, 1900. 

This pamphlet of 36 pages opens with a copy of the text of the Mayflower 
L-ompact and the names of the signers thereto, among which is that of Thomas 
£\aJ- i 1 ^ 11 . 1 be rememb ered that this Thomas, with both his wife and only 
child, died during the "first sickness," and hence was not the progenitor of the 
American Tinker family. The Rev. William Durant of Saratoga? N Y who is 
preparing a comprehensive genealogy of the family is of the undoubted 
opinion that John Tinker, who came to New England in 1636, is the common 
ancestor; but may have been related to Thomas of the Mayflower. This pam- 
phlet, then, gives the descendants in one line of John Tinker through ten 
generations. °

was the son of Richard Whaley, of the eleventh generation, in the pedigree of 
the family, who is spoken of as a man of "munificence and energy." Two of

1 24 Book Notices. [April, 

It was not the intention of the compiler of this book to produce a complete 
family history, and he frankly states that such would be a more serious labor 
than he would care to confront. He has purposed instead "to discover the 
origin of the family; to trace it from that origin down to its establishment in 
the New World; to indicate the lineage which sprang from the ancestral emi- 
gration; and to push one lineage down to the middle of the nineteenth century." 
Libraries, public documents, civic records and church registers in England, 
Holland and France have been examined by the compiler, and a list presented 
in his preface. Regarding the American citations these appear in the text or 
in foot notes. The contents consist of chapters as follows: Origin of the name; 
Avesnes and its early de Forests, descendants of Melchoir de Forest, 2d, Jean 
and Jesse; The Walloon Emigration of 1623-4: Sequal of the Walloon Colony; 
The Stratford, Conn., de Forests: David C. de Forest; Children of Benjamin 2d. 
An appendix of six parts gives records, registers and family data, historic 
papers and genealogical notations concerning various de Forest families.

"Lady Hancock," a story of the American Revolution. By Mary 
Elizabeth Springer. Isaac H. Blanchard Co., Pub., New York, 1900. i2mo, 
pp. 267. 

Miss Springer, the author of this book, is the recording secretary of the 
New York City Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, and her long 
connection with that organization, her active interest in its patriotic and his- 
torical work, qualify her to produce a book of this kind. As the title proclaims 
it is a story 01 the American Revolution in which the events of that stirring 
contest are not merely referred to, but related in detail, in simple, direct, nar- 
rative style. The romance of the story centers in Dorothy Quincy, who became 
the wife of John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress, and a leading 
spirit of the Revolutionary party. Copies of this book may be had of the 
author, No. 148 West 64th St., N. Y. City. 

X Lewis Allen, of Watertown Farms (Weston), Mass., 1665, and his 
Descendants. By Allen H. Bent of Boston. David Clapp & Son, Boston, 
1900. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 33. 

"Lewis Allen of Watertown Farms (Weston), Mass.," says this pamphlet, 
"seems to have been neglected by most of the early genealogical writers, ex- 
cept Bond, who unfortunately confuses some of his descendants with those of 
Walter Allen. The two families located in the same precinct at about the same 
time, but do not appear to have been related." It is the purpose of this pam- 
phlet to straighten out this confusion, and the descendants are given for seven 
generations, of which the first three are reprinted from the New Eng. Register 
for October, 1900.

Volume two of these papers is an account of the United Empire Loyalist 
Settlement at Long Point, Lake Erie, by L. H. Tasker of the Collegiate Insti- 
tute, Niagara Falls, N. Y. These supporters on the wrong side of the American 
Revolution, exposed to insult, publicly ostracised, their lives in danger and 
property confiscated, stood for the unity of the empire until compelled to seek 
refuge on British soil, and as the author of this work truly says, their story,

though ever told, is ever new. Mr. Tasker has presented their side of the case 
with a masterly hand, and after a perusal of this work the truly broad must 
concede that all men, right or wrong, are entitled to the courage of their con- 
victions, and that the participants on both sides of an international war have 
an equal right to exclaim "dulce et decorum est pro patria mori."

The Cradle of the Republic; Jamestown and James River. By 
Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Pres. of Wm. & Mary's College, Richmond, Va. Whittet 
& Shepperson, 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 187. 

We of the nineteenth century look back to the time when that ill-assorted 
collection of men came in their three ships and planted the first colony on 
American soil as though it were a far-off period ; and yet it was but as yesterday 
when "the old world first met the new." With thoughts filled with the glowing 
accounts of the land of paradise where gold mines were abundant, and the 
natives a peaceful, friendly set, waiting to welcome the white man with open 
arms, what must have been their disappointment to find a land of virgin forest 
and hostile inhabitants, and work, work, work of the roughest sort! Then came 
starvation, sickness, Indian attacks, and internal dissention; a period of partial 
prosperity, and then the "Starving Time" that reduced the Colony to forty 
souls. Fiske refers to this period as one of cannibalism, and gives instances of 
men killing their wives and devouring them. This statement has gone un- 
challenged, and we had hoped to find something bearing upon the subject in 
Dr. Tyler's book, but all reference to it is omitted. But what the author does 
give is page after page of historic detail, told in a narrative style of most 
interesting tenor, and accounts of the settlement of nearby places, with the 
names and doings of the settlers. These, with the reproductions of maps and 
drawings of the period, as well as extracts from the writings of persons con- 
temporaneous with the early history of Jamestown, make up a scholarly volume 
upon a subject of vast interest to the student of history, of whatsoever nationality 
he may be. It was truly the cradle of the republic; and ere the sturdy band 
of determined Pilgrims had pressed their feet upon Plymouth Rock, Jamestown 
had begun, had starved and begun again, had fought, and bled, and watched, 
and worked — and firmly planted itself forever. 

Historical Sketches and Reminiscences of an Octogenarian. 
By Thomas L. Preston. Pub. for the author by B. F. Johnson Pub. Co., Rich- 
mond, Va., 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 170. 

Mr. Preston in these Reminiscences has risen to the occasion and discharged 
a duty to the historical world. None knew better than he how important it is 
that the statements of "oldest inhabitants" are of value always and should be 
recorded; none regreted more than he that historians of Virginia have, for the 
most part, confined themselves to the eastern part of the State, while the 
records and traditions of the territory beyond the Alleghany Mountains have 
been forgotten, and neglected lie. So it is, with memory refreshed by exami- 
nation of records, with energy spurred by a sense of obligation to friends and 
antiquarians, the author of this entertaining book has set down the facts relating 
to events of historic interest that have occurred within his lifetime. The book 
is full of anectodes and historical sketches and one reads it with both pleasure 
and profit.

Vol. XXXII. NEW YORK, JULY, 1901. No. 3. 


By Walter L. Fleming. 

Robert Livingston was born December 13, 1654, at Ancram, 
Scotland. His father, a Presbyterian clergyman, was one of the 
commissioners from Scotland to Charles II., when in exile at 
Breda. After the restoration his opposition to the Episcopacy- 
made him obnoxious to the court party, and he went to Rotter- 
dam where he became the pastor of an English Presbyterian 

In Holland Robert acquired a knowledge of the Dutch people 
and their language, which was of great service to him in New 
York. In 1674 he left Rotterdam and came to Albany, where he 
became, as Governor Fletcher afterwards said, "a little book- 

The next year Governor Andros instituted a general court of 
the County of Albany. Livingston was made clerk of this court, 
and secretary to the Board of Commissioners for Indian Affairs, 
which was created at the same time.f At first the latter position 
carried no salary with it, but in 1696, King William fixed the 
salary at jQ 100 for life. When Albany was incorporated in 1686, 
by Governor Dongan, Livingston was made Town Clerk, Clerk of 
the Peace, and Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas. Dongan 
also appointed him Collector and Receiver of Quitrents and 
Excises at Albany, with a promise of a shilling in the pound on 
all^tnoney that passed through his hands, "which with his other 
offices might afford him a competent maintenence," the governor 
said.J Peter Schuyler and Livingston had secured the charter 
for Albany from Dongan, and the magistrates voted thanks to 
them for their services. A gift of ^500 was made to Dongan in 
return for the charter. A few years later we find that in con- 
sideration of the various duties performed by Livingston as 
clerk, the Council of Albany advanced his salary for that office 
from fifteen to twenty pounds a year.§ From the collector's 
office he received fifty pounds a year.|| 

By his marriage in 1683, with Alida, the sister ( of Peter 
Schuyler and widow of the Rev. Nicholas Van Renssalaer, Liv-

130 The Public Career of Robert Livingston. [July, 

ingston became connected with one of the most prominent and 
influential Dutch families of the province. Not long after his 
marriage he claimed a share of the Van Renssalaer estate on the 
ground that his wife was heir to the shadowy claim of Nicholas 
Van Renssalaer. He lost his case, but the heirs made him an 
allowance of money. Once the Dutch Church of Albany was in 
need of money, and Livingston had such good success in collecting 
for it, that he was rewarded with the choice of seats in the church, 
"to belong to him and his successors forever."* 

His income from his various official positions was carefully 
invested, and he soon became one of the wealthiest men of the 
colony. He was the only man in the province who could under- 
take a government contract and wait for his pay until the taxes 
were collected. For this reason, nearly all such contracts fell 
into his hands, and on all of them he made money. While he 
waited for his pay, and for some of it he waited twenty-five years, 
the interest was accumulating, so that sometimes his bills, when 
paid, would be double the original amount.f In the long run he 
never failed to collect a debt due him. 

His connection with the Indian Commissioners afforded him 
many advantages in the way of private trade with the Indians 
and the French. His official business made him acquainted with 
the location of the best tracts of unoccupied lands. Ambitious 
to be the owner of a vast estate, he quietly extinguished the 
Indian titles to these lands, and then secured patents for them 
from the governor. For one large tract of land he paid: "300 
Guilders in Zewant, Eight Blankets and two Childs' Blankets, 
Five and twenty ells of Duffels and four garments of Strouds, 
ten large shirts and ten small ditto, ten pairs of large Stockings 
and ten pairs of Small, Six Guns, fifty pounds of powder, Fifty 
staves of Lead, four caps, Ten Kettles, Ten Adzes, Ten axes, 
Two pounds of paint, Twenty little scissors, Twenty little Looking 
glasses, one hundred fishhooks, Awls and Nails of each one hun- 
dred, four rolls of Tobacco, one hundred Pipes, ten Bottles, Three 
Kegs of Rum, one Barrill of Strong Beer, and Twenty Knives, 
Four Stroud Coats, and Two Duffels Coats, and four Tin Kettles."]; 
At another time, "A certain Crippled Indian Woman . . ac- 
knowledges to have received full satisfaction by a cloth garment 
and a cotton shift for her share and claim to a certain Flatt of 
Land situate in the Manor of Livingston. "§ In this manner the 
Indian titles were secured to a tract of land east of the Hudson, 
extending sixteen miles along the river and twenty-four miles 
inland. A surveyor's map of 17 15 gives the number of acres at 
160,240.11 The popular estimate was 250,000 acres. In 1686, Dongan 
granted Livingston a patent for this territory.^ It was erected 
into a Manor with the privilege of holding a Court Baron and a 
Court Leet, and the advowson of all the churches within the 
Manor. The quit-rent for this immense domain was twenty-eight 
shillings a year.

190 1 .] The Public Career of Robert Livingston. I 3 I 

Near the close of Dongan's administration, Livingston made 
large advances of money to pay and subsist the troops, for gifts 
to the Indians, and for the needs of French prisoners. It was 
more than twenty years before he collected this loan. Hence- 
forth until the end of his life, whether in office or out of office, in 
England or in America, he occupied his time in urging his old 
claims and in making new ones, in seeking special privileges and 
salaries for himself or family — all the time becoming more and 
more a leading man in colony affairs. He was almost the only 
man to whom the governors could turn when the government 
was in financial straits, and always receive assistance. His 
services in this way to the government were very valuable. 

Livingston's interests were for the most part those of the 
aristocratic party, composed of the wealthy men and great landed 
proprietors of the province. But at short notice he could change 
to the opposite side. " He could turn his coat easier than any 
man living; this became an inherited trait, cropping out among 
his posterity."* His fortune had been made through the friend- 
ship of Andros and Dongan, both of whom were devoted to the 
Stuarts, and when the news of the Revolution reached Albany, it 
was unwelcome to Livingston. He feared the results of a change 
of rulers and, as his fathers before him had been, was a supporter 
of the Stuarts. He publicly expressed his ill opinion of the 
attempt of William of Orange to dethrone James II., though 
afterwards he in a letter to the Secretary of State said: "The 
news of their Majesties accession was refreshing as a reprieve to 
the condemned,"! and he further says he proclaimed them him- 
self. He had, he explained, opposed the usurpation of Leisler, 
not the government of William and Mary. 

When the news of the Revolution came to New York, Jacob 
Leisler, a captain of one of the militia companies of the city 
and a leader of the popular party, took possession of the fort with 
his company, and declared his intention to hold it for William 
and Mary. So far very well, but his head was turned by events 
which soon followed. A communication from the government 
of William and Mary addressed to Lieutenant-Governor Francis 
Nicholson, or in his absence to "whomsoever might be acting in 
his place," fell into Leisler's hands and was sufficient authority for 
him to constitute himself lieutenant-governor and commander- 
in-chief. The aristocratic party of Albany had no desire to 
submit to the self-assumed authority of this popular leader, so 
the officers of Albany met in convention, and controlled by Robert 
Livingston, who was secretary of the convention, resolved that 
until William and Mary were heard from all public business 
should be managed by the mayor, aldermen, and justices-of-the- 

The New York frontiers were at the mercy of the Indians and 
French, who had begun war after the accession of William, so the 
convention sent Livingston as a delegate to "Canetticut and

Boston to declare the condition of the country, and desire y l all 
Endevors may be used to Rigg out vessels toward Quebec, and 
Prevent all succor comeing from france and to Request y e assist- 
ance of fifty men and one hundred Barrells of Porke and Beefe, 
and if no men can be obtained then ^400 in money."* Living- 
ston "desyred to be excused from goeing to N. England, not 
judgeing himself cappable of mannageing a Bussinesse of y l 
moment."f However, he was prevailed upon to go, and set out 
just about the time the reports of his utterances regarding the 
Revolution reached the ears of Leisler. Fearing that any assist- 
ance that might be obtained would be used against him, and 
suspecting that Livingston would endeavor to break down his 
influence in New England,! Leisler sent officers with warrants to 
arrest Livingston. One of the warrants read: 

"Whereas, one Robert Livingston by the Instigacon of the 
Devill did utter ye malice of his heart in Saying that he was 
Enformed that a parcell of rebells were gone out of holland to 
England and that ye prince of Orange headed them Saying that 
they might see how they got out of againe or words to this pur- 
pose and that they should come to ye same End that monmouth 
did and hath comitted other high crimes, 

These are in his Ma ties name to will and require all persons . 
. . to apprehend . . . said Livingston and bring him before 
me . . . Jacob Leisler."J 

There is no doubt but that Livingston made use of the ex- 
pressions charged against him. Leisler's officers secured a num- 
ber of sworn statements from persons who had heard him,§ but 
it was a slight basis for a charge of treason. No one but Leisler 
in his strange new dignity would have noticed such a matter. 

Livingston's house was searched for treasonable documents, 
but none were found. But a priest's regalia and a number of 
Indian catechisms which had been captured and deposited with 
him were found, and served as ground for renewed accusations. 
He was outlawed and his property sequestrated to the crown. || 
Governor Treat of Connecticut, informed Leisler that Livingston 
would be arrested and tried in Connecticut courts if some one 
would appear and make security for the successful prosecution of 
the case, or for the payment of damages if Livingston should be 
acquitted.^ This was not done and he was never molested. 

Livingston drew up strong addresses to the legislatures of 
Connecticut and Massachusetts, asking assistance for the defense 
of Albany and the New York frontier. At the same time he set 
to work to detach the colonies from the interests of Leisler, and 
succeeded. A plan for the invasion of Canada by way of the 
Hudson River and Lake Champlain was drawn up by him, 
and laid before the governments of Connecticut and Massa- 
chusetts.** The capture of Quebec, it was urged, would be "the 
downfall of Anti-Christ," and "the plunder ten times pay the

charge of the expedition." But Massachusetts was fitting out an 
expedition of her own against Port Royal where plunder was 
nearer, and nothing could then be done for New York. From 
Connecticut, however, was obtained a small force— 135 whites, 
and 80 Indians. Later, largely through the efforts of Livingston, 
an agreement was reached between Massachusetts, Connecticut 
and New York, to invade Canada via Lake Champlain. When 
Winthrop of Connecticut, who had been appointed to the chief 
command, went to Albany where the forces were to be collected, 
he took Livingston along under his protection. He made Living- 
ston's house his headquarters, guarded him and refused to allow 
him to be arrested, to the great disgust and anger of Leisler.* 
After the army marched Livingston disappeared and was not 
seen again until the downfall of Leisler. The failure of the 
attempt against Canada was attributed by Leisler to Livingston's 
influence with the New England officers. He believed Livingston 
to be in secret sympathy with the French, who were supporting 
the cause of James II. 

Upon the arrival of Governor Sloughter, Leisler and Milborne^ 
his son-in-law, were thrown into prison, and after trial were- 
condemned to death. Livingston, who had been one of Leisler's. 
bitterest opponents, was present at the execution. Milborne 
caught sight of him in the crowd and addressed him in these 
words: "You have caused the King that I die, but before God's 
tribunal I will implead you for the same."f 

Sloughter died before Livingston got his affairs into shape,, 
but Fletcher, the next governor, restored his offices (1695), and 
made him judge-advocate of a court martial at Albany which 
had the management of military affairs on the frontier. Fletcher, 
however, refused to pay his salary as Secretary of Indian Affairs; 
he disliked Livingston, and neglected his claims, whereupon he 
went to England to urge his case in person before the Lords of 
the Treasury and the Board of Trade. The ship in which he took 
passage lost her rudder in a storm, and they were five months at 
sea. For seventeen weeks each person had only a little cocoanut 
and a pint of water a day; at last they were driven upon the 
coast of Portugal. Livingston travelled through Portugal and 
Spain, and finally reached England. J 

Before the Board of Trade, he charged Fletcher with mis- 
appropriation of public funds, which should have been used to 
repay the advances made for pay and subsistance of the troops. 
He also alleged fraud and undue influence in elections on the part 
of the governor. The latter charge was supported by the testi- 
mony of William Kidd.§ 

Livingston made many friends at court who were of great 
assistance to him afterwards. All of his claims were granted, his 
salary as Secretary was raised and fixed at jQ\oq a year for 
life, and he was confirmed for life in his offices of collector, town

clerk, clerk of the peace, and clerk of the Court of Common Pleas.* 
Some of his bills were paid in England, and he returned to New- 
York with a royal order for the payment of the remainder from 
the treasury of the province. The governor and council refused 
to recognize his credentials and orders on the treasury, stating 
that he had obtained the approval of his claims by false repre- 
sentations to the authorities in England.f The charges made 
against Fletcher had been referred by the Board of Trade to the 
council of New York, and this body, on which were two of 
Livingston's brothers-in-law, was devoted to Fletcher. They 
opposed all of Livingston's petitions. He was an alien, they said, 
and therefore could not hold office. This referred to his nation- 
ality, Scotch. In their estimation, he was already sufficiently 
rewarded by fees, " by which he has raised himself from nothing 
to be one of the richest men of the province." Moreover, they 
went on to say, there was not, and had never been, such an office 
as Secretary of Indian Affairs; all dealings with the Indians 
having been carried on by the governor in person, and, besides, 
Livingston was not capable of performing any services of value 
in Indian affairs. All he had ever done was to translate from 
Dutch into English. The council (Peter Schuyler not voting) 
recommended that he be suspended from this office of Secretary 
of Indian Affairs, and that of Collector of Royal Revenues until 
his majesty's pleasure could be known.J The growing influence 
of Livingston was beginning to create envy and jealousy among 
the less fortunate. Perhaps Peter Schuyler felt just a little that 
his brother-in-law was rising too fast. 

Concerning this matter, Governor Fletcher wrote to England: 
"This man by false insinuations to the Lords of Trade of his 
sufferings has prevailed upon their Lordps for these salaries 
when all know he has made a considerable fortune by his employ- 
ments in the Government, never disbursing six pence but with 
the expectation of twelve pence, his beginning being but a little 
Book keeper he has screwed himself into one of the most con- 
siderable estates in the province. [I] Do hope you'll endevor to 
keep a man of such vile principles from sucking any more the 
blood of this province, for he hath been a spunge to it. . . . 
he is known to all men here to have neither religion nor morality, 
but his whole thirst being at any rate and by any ways to enrich 
himself and has said (I am informed) he had rather be called 
knave Livingston than poor Livingston. "§ 

In a letter to the Board of Trade, Livingston made an able 
reply to the charges made against him by Fletcher and the 
council. He was not an alien, he said, having been born subse- 
quent to the Union of Scotland and England under James I. All 
persons born in Scotland after the Union were British citizens. \ 
The importance of the office of Secretary of Indian Affairs was 
shown. Not only did the secretary have to translate from Dutch 
into English what the interpreter rendered into Dutch, but correct

records of 'all transactions with the Indians had to be kept, and 
copies sent to the governor. Forty or fifty times a year he was 
obliged to be present at conferences with the Indians, whenever 
the governor or the commissioners met representatives of the 
Indians. He had been sent several times on missions to the 
Indian tribes, and had rendered valuable services in making 
treaties with them.* He was largely responsible for the fact 
that the Five Nations acknowledged the sovereignty of England 
on their territory. 

His charges and the efforts of his friends in London, prevented 
the reappointment of Fletcher, and Lord Bellomont came over as 
governor. Livingston had formed an acquaintance with him in 
England, and learning that Bellomont would probably be the next 
governor of New York, he took pains to ascertain his views on 
the government of the colony. He had learned among other 
things, that Bellomont would espouse the cause of the Leislerian 
or popular party, which, owing to the misgovernment of Fletcher, 
was growing more powerful. Now he found it necessary to 
experience a change of belief in politics. Bellomont was directed 
by his instructions from the Lords of Trade to examine Living- 
ston's claims,f which he did and pronounced them correct; but 
neglected to make a recommendation to the Board of Trade. His 
offices were restored, and he was made a member of the council. \ 
Bellomont relied upon his judgment, especially in matters relat- 
ing to the Indians. The council formerly hostile to Livingston, 
acknowledged to the governor that he was the most suitable man 
in the colony for the offices to which he had been appointed, and 
for undertaking the subsistence of the soldiers. § The governor 
in his reports to the English authorities, often mentioned the 
valuable services Livingston had rendered to the King by paying 
and subsisting the troops when no one else would do so. || 

He was always ready to support the government with his 
money, when all others were cautious about making loans which 
were apt to run a long time, and possibly never be repaid. The 
governor called Livingston the best man in the province.^

By Frank J. Conkling, Brooklyn, N. Y. 

(Continued from Vol. XXXII., p. 80, of The Record.) 

* Though proof is not positive, the writer by careful research 
and study, brings the line of descent from Francois Dupuis much 
nearer to the door-steps of Senator Depew than does any possible 
line leading from Nicholas. 

The earliest positive recordf of Francois places him as one of 
the twenty-three first inhabitants of "Boswyck," modernly pro- 
nounced Bush wick, and now a component part of Brooklyn. 
This record was a petition of March 14, 166 1, asking for the usual 
privileges of a newly incorporated village. Francois was then 
unmarried, but no doubt was arranging for a home in which to 
take his prospective bride during the coming autumn. Another 
record, \ year 1663, enrolls him with a Boswyck company of militia, 
having Ryck Lydecker as its captain. This company was evi- 
dently organized for home protection against Indian depredations. 
How long Francois remained at Bushwick is uncertain. William 
is his only child known to have been born there. Probably 
others were, but baptismal records of the first ten years of his 
marriage are not extant. Perhaps he resided in New York for a 
time, but there is no evidence to substantiate such a claim, unless 
we accept the baptismal records of the New York Reformed 
Dutch Church, years 1671 to 1677, during which time three of his 
children were there baptised. In the latter year (1677) Bergen 
says§ he and his wife became members of the Dutch Church at 
Flatbush. Certain it is that their next two children were baptised 
there in 1679 and 1681 respectively.! Yet all this does not prove 
that the family up to this time had changed their residence. 
Though it does seem singular that the Assessors of Bushwick, 
and other Dutch towns of Long Island, in making up their tax 
lists for 1675 and l6 7 6 ^ should on both occasions skip Francois if 
he were a resident among them, and as he was not even down for 
poll tax it is fair to presume that he was absent, perhaps on 
Staten Island, where we find him at a later period. In this case, 
he had his reasons for returning to Long Island, probably in 1677, 
and then going back to take up his grant of eighty odd acres,

bearing date December 21, 1680,* which was laid out for him on 
the south side of the Fresh Kill. Another Staten Island grant 
was made him April 4, 1685,! but this time at Smoking- Point. In 
April, 1682, he and Robert Wright, as residents of Staten Island, 
appealed from a decision in a land suit, which was yet unsettled 
in September, 1685. The records}; in these cases are of "Francis 
Pew," as the English scribes would have it; but Riker in his 
"History of Harlem," and Clute, in his "Annals," are good 
authority as to his identity. Except that Clute places him as a 
son of Nicholas, with nothing to back his theory but a flimsy 
guess. In 1686 Francois had his son Nicholas baptised in New 
York. The next year he turns up as a resident of Rockland 
County (then a part of Orange), where on September 26th, he 
signed an oath of allegiance§ with the other inhabitants of 
recently established settlements at Haverstraw and Orangetown. 
While three of his children married and settled in Rockland 
County, Francois appears to have crossed the river, previous to 
the census of Orange in 1702, and sat down in Westchester 
County, where others of his children had married and settled. 
After 1687 we do not find his name except on church records. 
His youngest child, Mary, was baptised in New York in 1689. If 
the record is correct he had married again ; Geertje Willems having 
been superseded by Annie Elsten, the mother of Mary. We next 
find Francois with his daughter Maria, standing as sponsors or 
God-parents at the baptism of his grand-daughter Grietje Quorry, 
in the Sleepy-Hollow Church, April 1, 1702. This church a few 
years later recorded the same two as members, having residence 
on the patent of Captain DeKay and Ryck Abrahamsen (Lent.) 
A grandson of the latter having previously married the said 
Maria. || 

The archives do not unfold further information of Francois, 
who has become the most important factor of this paper. He 
probably followed the pursuit of farming, enjoying a quiet un- 
assuming life, rather than the prominence of political or other 
history making activities. His children married into good 
families, but they too successfully avoided the record maker and 
burned their historical bridges to the disparagement of the one 
who may wish to become the family historian. It is only through 
the Records of the Reformed Dutch Churches of New York, 
Tappan,!" Tarrytown,** and Cortlandt,ff that any of the lines of 
Francois can be traced, and as much is lacking, it is the scraps 
put together, using the peculiar judgment of a genealogical 
student, that enables the following arrangement: 

1. Willem, probably the eldest son of Francois Dupuis, was 
among the pioneers of the locality made famous as the birthplace 
of our illustrious Senator. He was there when settlement had 
hardly begun, a young man yet in single blessedness, and had

permanent fixtures.

struck camp, it would seem, on the point of land called by the 
Indians Meanagh* or Mernach, and afterwards named Verplancks 
Point. A tract of land including this point was purchased of the 
Indians by Stephanus Van Cortlandt in 1685. Additional pur- 
chases and a Royal charter in 1697 created the Manor of Cort- 
landt.f This with the Manor of Philipsburg adjoining on the 
south, and other large royal grants and charters established a 
landed gentry along the Hudson River, particularly on the east 
side, from New York to north of Albany. Thus a large majority 
of the settlers through this territory became tenants or lessees, 
and continued as such, followed by their descendants, for more 
than one hundred years. In this way many good families were 
held in check from participating in the progress of our Nation's 
history, and their talents buried to take root in later generations, 
where more fertile conditions, and opportunities well applied, 
have since brought forth some of our country's best and wisest 

William was at Mernach as early as 1688. He had probably 
strayed over from Haverstraw, where his father had located a 
year or so before, and where his brother John continued to live 
for some years afterward. We can see him industriously toiling 
with logs and bark to make a home for his promised bride, a 
maiden no doubt of English parentage, born on the Island of Bar- 
badoes. The record calls her "Lysbeth Weyt." In English we 
would say Elizabeth White. She was living a little further down 
the river at a place named by the Indians "Kightwanck," \ and 
situated near the mouth of the Croton River, which stream 
formerly bore the same Indian name as was given the locality. 
Thus we interpret the record of his bans, as posted on the 
register of the Dutch Church of New York, then the nearest one 
to their home, which church also issued a certificate permitting 
William to marry at the home of the bride. This is the first 
record of William, and as it tells pretty near his whole history up 
to this time, proving by his birth-place his connection with the 
family of Francois, it is here reproduced as follows: " 10th Au- 
gust, 1688." "Willem Depuy, j. m. Van Boswyck, en Lysbeth 
Weyt, j. d. van de Barbados, d' Eerste wonende op Mernach, en 
twede tot Kichtewang." "Vertoog verleent, om te trouwen tot 

The marriage was probably executed in the most primitive 
style at Kichtewang during the following month, and if not the 
first wedding in the Manor of Cortlandt, it was the forerunner of 
an event that has made Peekskill renowned as the home of a 
great and popular orator. The index finger of family lineage 
points in this direction so strongly, that the writer has concluded 
before following it down further, to first dispose of the rest of the 
family of Prancois. 

2. Jannetje (Jane). There is no record of her birth, baptism 
or marriage, but Kellem MaKorry, Quorry or Quori, but possibly

1 44 The Family of Dupuis, De Puy, Depew, Etc. [July, 

Cory, and Jannetje De Pu, de Py, etc., had four children bap- 
tised in New York and Tarrytown as follows: Maria, 1695; Johan- 
nes, 1697; Grietje, 1702, and Elsie, 1704. At the baptism of 
Johannes, the sponsors were: "Jan Waerdt and Grietje his Wife;" 
the latter being a sister of Jannetje, the mother. Grietje, the 
third child, was sponsored by her grandfather, "Francois D'Puw" 
and Maria, his daughter. Lack of records do not indicate that 
these four were her only children. 

3. Grietje (Margaret), baptised October 1, 1671, in New York. 
She was the wife of Jan Ward of Haverstraw, when they joined 
the Dutch Church at Tappan, October 24, 1694* There they 
had baptised the following children: Grietje, year 1700; Maria, 
1702, and Willem, 1704. The census of Orange County taken in 
1702,1 credits John Waard and Grietje, his wife, with three girls. 
After 1704 they disappear. 

4. Jean (John), baptised in New York May 20, 1674. The 
sponsors at his baptism were members of two prominent New 
York families, viz.: "Mr. Hans Kierstede and Margariet Harden- 
broeck." John went with his father to Haverstraw, where, on 
April 16, 1701, the records of the Tappan Church says he married 
Jannetje Wiltse, widow of Myndert Hendrickse (Hogencamp). 
She was the mother of a family of children baptised in New York 
as follows: Hendrick, 1682; Jan, 1685; Margrietje, 1687; Marten, 
1690; Anna, 1693, and Myndert. A younger child, Barbara, was 
baptised in 1700 at Tappan, who later became the wife of Edmond 
Concklin. The census of 1702 credits "John D'Puy " as of Haver- 
straw, with wife "Janneken," and six children under sixteen 
years of age, evenly divided as between boys and girls. These 
children were clearly Hogencamps; but before the year closed 
John added one to the family, and probably the only child he 

y. could call his own. He named her Geertje in remembrance of his 

^ V\a-* mother. She was baptised at Tappan, October 14, 1702, and on 

Jo^ A " January 1, 1720, married John Concklin, brother of Edmond, who 

^ ** aS v- had married about the same time her half sister. John and Ed- 

c e%-fc DV ' j^ mond were sons of Nicholas Concklin of Kakiat, Rockland County, 

^-upc.^ who had but recently moved from Eastchester, Westchester 

C^ County, where he had lived for many years. 

Jannetje Wiltse was baptised at Kingston,}; New York, Jan- 
uary 7, 1663, the daughter of Hendrick Martensen Wiltse, who 
afterward became a resident of Newtown,§ Long Island. 

In the census of Orange County, year 1712,1 "John Pew" and 
wife of Haverstraw, had but two children living at home, a boy 
and a girl, both under sixteen. John was a surveyor of land,l 
and established many land-marks and lines locally in Rockland 
County. In 1722 he acquired a tract of Orange County land,** 
some 1250 acres of the "Evans Patent." With this transaction 
we lose sight of him.

Editor's Note: — We have received from several correspondents, who have read the first 
installment of this article, information concerning certain names which in the original were 
difficult to decipher or completely illegible. Our appreciation of the accuracy and value of this 
information is attested by the publication of it here: 

Page 101 :— Mody Haws should be Moody Howes; Lucia Collins should be Lucia Cullens, who 
was probably the widowed daughter of Rev. Elisha Kent; Nathanel Scriber should be Scribner. 

Page 102:— Ruth, wife of Jacob Reed, should be Ruah; Rilley should be Killey, a very com- 
mon name in that locality; Anne Haws should be Anne Howes; Rev. Abraham O. Stambury 
should be Stansbury.

By Robert B. Miller. 

Hawxhurst is from the word " Hurst," a wood, or Hawkwood. 
It is beyond doubt good Saxon. 

John Hawkherst was appointed Abbott of St. Augustine, in 
Canterbury, January 25, 1427, and it is possible that the town of 
Hawkhurst in Kent, early gave rise to the family name. 

Bridge's History of Northants, Vol. I., p. 276: "Sampson 
Hawkherst, Vicar of Towcester, 1569-99. 

Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica, Vol. IV., p. 377, and Vol. 
V., p. 4; The Register Book of Marey, County of Northant (North- 

I9 01 -! H aw xhurst Family. \1\ 

"Xpo (Christopher) Hawxsworth, married October 1=;, icco 

Elizabeth . They had: 

William, baptized October 15, 155 1." 

History of Shrewsbury, H. Owen, p. 153, Ministers of St. Chads: 
"Christopher Hawksworth, Died of Plague, Aug., 1576. He suc- 
ceeded John Marshall, ejected on the accession of Queen Elizabeth 
in 1558 for refusing burial in his church to Mr. Burton of Long- 
nor. The living of St. Chads, strictly speaking, was a 'Curacy' 
though it has for near a century been styled a Vicarage." 

History of Shrewsbury, Shropshire (Salop), by Owen & Blake- 
way, Vol. II., p. 212; Incumbents of St. Chads: "Christopher 
Hawkshurst was probably appointed on the accession of Elizabeth. 
He died of plague, August, 1576." 

"Our M. S. Chronicle recording that event calls him Hawcks- 
woorthe but his true name appears in two items of our bailliffs 
accounts, which evince the regard paid to his memory 14 years 
after his decease. 1589, paid and yevan (Sic,) to Mr. Sampson 
Hawkshurst toward his preferment in learning in respect to his 
father's pains and travell in our town, 5 pounds." 

"Apr. 28, 1590— Received of the Bailiffs 5 pounds for the use 
of Sams Hauxhurst, late son of Mr. Christopher Hauxhurst, late 
preacher of God's word in Salop, for his better maintenance and 
studi in Oxford." 

No Curate appears for seven years until in 1583, when Thomas 
Price was appointed. 

Foster's Alumni Oxonienses: "Samson Hawkhurst (Haux- 
hurste) of Salop— Clerici Alius, Balliol Coll., (Oxford) Matriculated 
6 Nov., 1590, aged 19. B. A. June 25, 1593: B. D. from Magdalen 
Hall, July 9, 1607— Canon Lichfield. 1607-27. Vicar of Nuneaton, 
Co. Warwick, 1626-27. William Haukshurst, of Co. Warwick, 
Clerici films, Magdalen Hall, matriculated Nov. 6, 16 18, aged 18." 

The following entries occur in the "institution" books, Series 
A, Vol. IV., p. 143, under Warwickshire: 

Nuneaton, Rex 29, May, 1626, Sampson Hauxhurst. 
" 3 Sept., 1627, Will Craddocke. 

The "composition" books for 1626, show that Sampson Haux- 
hurst made a composition for his first fruits, his sureties being: 

"Richard Overton, girdler, of the Parish of St. Peter, Cheap-

1 80 Editorial, Obituary. [July, 


We have been watching with much interest the quiet, steady, unosten- 
tatious labor of our friend and correspondent, Mr. Ralph Lefevre, editor of the 
New Paltz (N. Y.) Independent. He has been collecting data of the early 
freeholders of the New Paltz Patent, which he has published for some time in 
his paper, besides many historic articles of much interest and value. Of the 
families already published we notice Bontecoe, Lefevre, Hasbrouck, Dubois, 
Relje, Bevier, Freer, and others. Mr. Lefevre has obtained possession of some 
papers which originally belonged to Hugo Freer, one of the patentees, among 
which is a certified list of the freeholders in 1712. It is his intention, we 
believe, to publish these valuable documents in the columns of the Independent 
and we take this occassion to express our appreciation of his public spirited 


Dyckman. — At Orange, N. J., January 11, 1901, William Henry Dyckman, 
born in New York City, November 18, 1823, the son of Jacob Garrett and Mary

At Orange, N. J., April 27, 1901, in the 68th year of her age, Naomi F. (Mac 
Kenzie) Dyckman of Inverness, Scotland, widow of the late William Henry 

Ketcham, William Platt, at one time a member of our Society, and 
for several years its Treasurer, died of pneumonia, on the steamship Fuerst 
Bismarck, just before reaching Gibralter, January 13, 1901, aged 59. He was 
the son of Treadwell, and Mary Van Winkle Ketcham of this city, where he 
was born. In 1862 he received the degree of A.B., from Yale University, 
which subsequently conferred upon him the Master's degree. In 1864 he 
received the degree of LL.B. from Columbia University, New York. Subse- 
quently he had an office as lawyer at 99 Wall street. He was a member of a 
number of societies and clubs. While living at Yonkers, N. Y., he was much 
interested in the affairs of that city, representing the Third Ward in its Com- 
mon Council, 1880-1882. A daughter, Mrs. Thomas W. Talmadge, resides at 
10 E. 63d street, New York. The foregoing statements were found in the 
newspapers, printed at the time of his death, which contained brief obituaries. 

Odell. — At Fort Massey, Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Thursday, April 18, 
1901, Elizabeth Ann Odell, widow of the late Hon. William Hunter Odell, 
Senator from New Brunswick, and daughter of the late Judge William Blowers 
Bliss, of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia. 

Stilwell, William Moore, of the New York Produce Exchange, 
died of acute Bright's disease, April 11, 1901, at his residence in this city, aged 
fifty-five years. He was born in this city, March 21, 1846, and was the son of 
Richard E. Stilwell and Harriet L. Redman, daughter of Charles H. Redman, 
all of New York City. His grandfather was the Rev. William M. Stilwell, a 
Methodist clergyman stationed for twenty-five years in this city. He was the 
eighth in descent from Capt. Nicholas Stilwell of Gravesend, L. I., who in 1663 
was lieutenant under Capt. Kregier in the second Esopus War. He was a 
member of the Holland Society, the Saint Nicholas Society, and the Society of 
Colonial Wars, and had been a member of the Harlem and the New York 
Athletic Clubs. He served for ten years in the Twenty-second Regiment, and 
took part in the suppression of the Orange Riot in 1871. At the time of his 
resignation he was lieutenant of Company D of this regiment. He was also a

at THE , last meeting of the season 1900-01, was held on the evening of Friday 
May io, but a wild storm prevailed, and the meeting was sparsely attended! 
Mr. Isaac Townsend Smith presented an address on "The Treatment of 
Prisoners of War. The season which has just drawn to a close has been a 
most prosperous one in every department of the Society's work, and we hope 
that the ensuing period will be the same. The members elected at the last 
meeting were: Mrs. Eugene Lamb Richards, Mrs. Chas. A. Sherman, and Mr. 
Edward Guyre Burgess. 

The Librarian wishes to announce that the Library will be closed to all 
during the month of August, but during July and September it will be available 
to members only on presentation of a visiting card. This arrangement is 
made necessary by the annual cleaning, cataloguing and renovating which 
have contributed so materially to the improvement of the Library

James Parshall and His Descendants. Compiled from the most 
authentic records. By James C. Parshall, Esq., Counsellor-at-Law, Author of 
the Barker Genealogy, etc., Syracuse. Privately printed, 1900. 8vo, pp. 46. 
Price, $1.00, 

The object of this pamphlet is to awaken an interest among the descend- 
ants of James Parshall that will assist the compiler in the more complete gene- 
alogy of this Long Island family upon which he is now at work. Judging from 
the arrangement and subject matter of this preliminary work Mr, Parshall's 
ability to compile the larger volume deserves our fullest confidence. 

Genealogy of the Riggs Family with a number of Cognate 
Branches descended from the original Edward through female 
lines, and many biographical outlines. By John H. Wallace. Vol. I. 
New York. Published by the author, 1901. 8vo, cloth. 

The work of more than a quarter of a century, this book represents ten 
generations, from 1590 to 1899, an d is embraced in one hundred and fifty-four 
pages, octavo size, with wide margins for notes and emendations. The com- 
plete line of descent from the first Edward of Roxbury is shown in each house- 
hold, and every father in the line is recorded in his place. The system of 
indexing is very simple and complete, embracing about three thousand refer- 
ences, which are made to consecutive households or paragraphs. 

This book is printed on good paper, with a photogravure frontispiece of 
Rev. Elias Riggs, D.D., LL.D., of Turkey; is serviceably bound in cloth, with 
the title stamped in gold on the back and side of the cover. It is hoped that 
the appearance of the book among the kindred may arouse an interest that 
will result in a second volume. The 250 copies will be sold at $5, or five copies 
for $20 in one order and one remittance. All remittances must be made by 
postal money order, or by bank check on New York, to John H. Wallace, No. 
40 West 93d Street, N. Y. City. 

Historical and Genealogical Record of the Descendants, as 
far as known, of rlchard and joan borden; who settled in ports- 
MOUTH, R. I., May 1638, with Historical and Biographical Sketches 
of some of Their Descendants. Compiled by Hattie Borden Weld. 8VO3. 
cloth, pp. 348. 

Mrs. Weld's genealogical study has certainly been pursued in a liberal 
spirit as the three hundred odd pages of this work demonstrate. No effort has 
been spared to obtain from living members of the family facts of interest for 
this volume; and the compiler is surely, as she styles herself, "an ardent gene- 
alogist." The work begins with a colored reproduction of the Borden Arms 
and then follows a treatise on the origin of the name, with extracts from " The 
Great Roll of Battle Abby," after which the compiler plunges at once into the 
subject of the emigration to America. Regarding this she says (quoting from 
the Rev. Pardon G. Seabury's manuscript), "from a careful and very extended 
examination of the early records of the Borden family, these two persons (Rich- 
ard and John Borden) appear to have been the pioneers in the work of immi- 
gration to this country, if not the only persons of that name who came over 
early and were the ancestors of the numerous Borden families that are scattered 
throughout every part of the Union." 

The probability of these two being brothers is discussed, but the descend- 
ants given in the body' of the work all come from Richard and his Welsh wife, 
Joan. These are given for eleven generations all conveniently arranged for 
ready reference. The work is illustrated and excellently bound, and the 
contents show patient labor and thorough, painstaking research. 

The Bemis History and Genealogy, being an Account, in the 
greater part, of the descendants of joseph bemis, of water-

This work was compiled from nearly a thousand question blanks sent out 
by Col. Draper which were returned to him filled in with data taken from fam-

Book Notices. [July. 

ily bibles, church and town records, — truly reliable sources. Aside from these 
the author has consulted many books on the subject a list of which he gives in 
the preface. No attempt is made to set forth the family history in England, so 
the work begins immediately with Joseph Bemis "founder and original immi- 
grant," who was born in England 1619, and came to Watertown, Mass., about 
1640. Descendants are given for six generations, with addenda regarding par- 
tially identified members of the family. The book is excellently printed on 
good paper and contains very full index of names and places. 

John Gibson of Cambridge, Mass., and His Descendants, 1634- 
1899. By Mehitable Calef Coppenhagen Wilson, 1900. (Washington, D. C.) 
8vo, cloth, pp. 542. 

"It is not certain," says the author in her preface, "whether our Gibsons 
are of English or Scottish origin: England, however, is generally the ascribed 
birth place of John Gibson, the Pioneer of 1634 in Cambridge, Mass., . . . " 
The book does not purport to be a full Gibson genealogy since, as the compiler 
says, it has been impossible to reach all its members, and some of those that' 
have been solicited have chosen to withold their information. Notwithstanding 
all that Mrs. Wilson has managed to crowd the pages of a thick volume with a 
mass of genealogical and biographical material that has been gathered from 
every available source and set forth here for the benefit of John Gibson's de- 
scendants. There are two hundred and twenty-eight families traced in this 
methodically arranged book and the thorough index is its crowning glory. 

The Wintermute Family History. Compiled by J. P. Wintermute, 
Delaware, Ohio, 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 335. 

After many years of painstaking research, this family history is finally 
presented for consideration. No doubt there are some errors, possibly many 
omissions, and in some families a very meager report. However the volume 
comprises the descendants of John George, Lennard and Philip Wintermute, 
of Stillwater, N. J., Wantage, N. J., and Wyoming Pa., respectively, and is 
divided into three parts, each reserved to the descendants of these immigrants 
separately. The press work is excellent, the binding neat, the illustrations 
generous — the whole volume a credit to the compiler. It contains 335 pages, 
and sixty halftone portraits of the family, including pictures of the two stone 
houses built by the emigrator, one of which is about one hundred and fifty 
years old. The work contains nearly three thousand names of descendants, 
including those who have married into the family, with a more or less complete 
history which the author has endeavored to make thoroughly reliable, not giving 
anything as fact unless it seemed to be thoroughly authenticated. The book 
was much larger than at first expected and the price is $4 for first quality cloth 
binding, $5.50 in full morocco. Remittances should be made to J. P. Winter- 
mute, Delaware, Ohio. 

Old Landmarks and Historic Personages of Boston. By Samuel 
Adams Drake. New and revised edition, illustrated, Boston. Little, Brown & 
Co., 1900. Crown 8vo, cloth, pp. xviii-484. 

Mr. Drake has been for several years accumulating materials for a thorough 
revision of the work. Besides numerous alterations in the text, designed to 
keep pace with the march of improvement, the opportunity has been availed of 
for the introduction of new and interesting matter. A number of full-page 
illustrations not found in earlier editions have been added, including a rare pic- 
ture of Boston in 1830; the daring feat of Isaac Harris, in saving the Old South 
from the flames; Boston Common as a cow pasture, with the Great Elm; Old 
Concert Hall, The Almack's of Boston; State Street in 1825, etc. The edition 
is uniform with the author's " Historic Mansions and Highways around Boston" 
and contains 93 illustrations and numerous plates. The original edition of this 
popular work has always been considered accurate and authoritative, so that 
the revisions have naturally added to its scope and its interest. Copies may be 
had of the publishers at $2.50 each. 

Ye Ancient Buriall Place of New London, Conn. New London. 
Press of the Day Pub. Co., 1899. Ob. 8vo, pp. 40, illustrated. 

igoi.] Book Notices. igr 

A record of the inscriptions on the gravestones of this the oldest burial 
place in eastern Connecticut has never until now been compiled, nor has any 
adequate representation of this historic spot been published. This attractive 
book, compiled by Mr. Edward Prentis of New London, contains the inscrip- 
tions from all the legible stones and is put forth "That those who come after us 
may know the names, and location of the graves of those who rest in the hal- 
lowed ground." The descriptive matter is taken from The Repository and 
calls particular attention to the exact location of the graves of the heroic dead. 
A panoramic view of the graveyard is folded in the centre of the book, and 
upon it each headstone is numbered to correspond with the key. 

History of Norfolk, Litchfield County, Connecticut. Opening 
chapters by Rev. Joseph Eldridge. Compiled by Theron Wilmot Crissey, 
Everett, Mass. The Massachusetts Pub. Co., 1900. L. 8vo, cloth, pp. viii-648. 

A splendid work and one that does great credit not only to the compiler 
but to the inhabitants of Norfolk as well. Its inception like that of so many 
others of its kind, began in genealogical research, which made apparent to the 
author the need of such a work and Norfolk's worthiness of it. The first three 
chapters by Dr. Eldridge refer to the history of Connecticut prior to the settle- 
ment of this town and also to the early events in its history. Then follow 
twenty-eight chapters by Mr. Crissey giving a complete and comprehensive 
biography of the town, with details of its political ecclesiastical, social and mil- 
itary history, well arranged, profusely illustrated and full of interest. Nor has 
the author forgotten to clothe his work in attractive and serviceable form, for 
the print, paper and binding are all one could desire; while that most necessary 
adjunct, the index, completes its perfection. 

Historical Memoranda concerning Persons and Places in Old 
Dover, N. H. . . . Edited by John Scales of Dover. Vol. I. Dover, N. H., 
March, 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 425. 

The contents of this volume were collected by Rev. Dr. Alonzo Hall Quint, 
and others, and published in the Dover Inquirer from 1850 to 1888. They 
were republished in part, in the Dover Inquirer from Dec. 10, 1897 to Jan. 5, 
1900. As the matter was printed from week to week, the same type was used 
to print four pages of this volume. At the completion of 97 pages the publica- 
tion ceased and the editor personally took up the work and pushed it to com- 
pletion. The subject matter was collected by Dr. Quint during nearly forty 
years and the publication of his valuable memoranda is the result of repeated 
demands from Librarians of many public libraries. 

Windham, Maine, in the War of the Revolution, 1775-1783. By 
Nathan Goold. H. W. Bryant, Bookseller and Publisher, Portland, Me., 1900. 
8vo, paper, pp. 16. 50 cents. 

This little pamphlet gives an account of the soldiers of Windham at Bos- 
ton, Ticonderoga, Saratoga, Quaker Hill, Valley Forge, Monmouth, etc., but 
does not pretend to give a complete list of those who served. 

Ancestry of John S. Gustin and his Wife, Susan McComb, in- 
cluding an Account of John Hubbard, Second Husband of Elinor 
Shepherd. By Mrs. Sarah A. Dewick, Boston. David Clapp & Son, 1900. 
8vo, pp. 136. 

Besides the names mentioned in the title, this work gives information con- 
cerning the families of Makepeace, Browne, Owen, Price, Smock, Conover, 
(Van Couwenhoven.) Schenck, Leggett, Mandeville, De Rie, Roos and Mott, 
and accounts of Osborne the Seneschal and Richard Lawrence. The book is 
compiled from published histories with corrections made by the author among 
which is a corrected form of the arms of the Schenck family.

R. Stevenson, of Haddonfield. N. J. The Jersey 'man is published by Mr. Deats 
and is issued quarterly at 50 cents per annum, single numbers 15 cents each. 

"^Ancestry of Capt. Timothy Prout of Boston, Mass. By J. Henry 
Lea (Reprinted from the New England Historical and Genealogical Register 
for January, 1901), Boston. Press of David Clapp & Son, 1901. 8vo, paper, pp. 14. 

Mr. Lea gives in this sketch authentic proof of the English ancestry of 
Capt. Timothy Prout, Surveyor of the Port of Boston, Captain of Forts and 
Artillery, Member of the Committee of Deeds with Indians, Selectman and 
Representative, 1682-1692. 

Suffolk Deeds, Liber XL Boston. Rockwell & Churchill, 1900. 8vo, 

This volume of the Suffolk Deeds contains the biographies of the early 
Recorders and Registers of Deeds of the County of Suffolk, begun in volume 
X., by Mr. John T. Hassam, who has here brought them down to 1900. In 
accordance with an order issued by the Board of Aldermen the deeds are 
reprinted verbatim, and the whole indexed by Mr. Hassam under five headings: 
Grantors, Grantees, Persons other than Grantors or Grantees, Places, Mis- 

A History of the Kentucky and Missouri Stiles, with a sketch 
of the New Jersey and Other Kindred. By LaFayette Stiles Pence, 
Lebanon, Ky. W. T. Hawkins, 1896. 8vo, paper, pp. 48. Price, 50 cents. 

Dr. Henry R. Stiles, in his Genealogy of the Stiles Family, refers to the 
existence of a Kentucky branch, supposed to have moved there from Morris- 
town, N. J., which at that time he could not connect with the parent stock. 
Mr. Pence has since done the "connecting" and takes up the family at this 
point, carrying them through several generations. 

Early Dublin. A List of the Revolutionary Soldiers of Dub- 
lin, N. H. By Samuel Carroll Derby, Columbus, Ohio, 1901. 8vo, paper, pp. 34. 

The general purpose of these lists is to preserve the memory of Dublin 
men who took a strenuous part in those "times that tried men's souls." It 
comprehends the list published in the History of Dublin forty-five years ago, 
which list this pamphlet has revised and increased. The basis of the work is 
Vols. XIV.-XVIL, inch, of the New Hampshire State Papers, known as "The 
Revolutionary Rolls." 

Genealogy of the Tapley Family. Illustrated. Compiled by Har- 
riett Sylvester Tapley, Danvers, Mass., 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 256. 

The pages of this volume include all the Tapley families in this country, 
as far as known, with the exception of the Mansfield Tapley branch of Cam- 
bridge. The name in one line of this branch which settled in Vermont and 
Canada became changed in the last century to Taplin, this spelling being still 
in use among the descendants. The first generation given in this book is 
John Tapley, born in England in 1638; married in Salem, 6 Dec, 1663, Eliza- 
beth, dau. of John Pride of Salem. His descendants are given in eight gener- 
ations, and the volume then takes up the line of Gilbert Tapley of Salem, the 
ancestor of the Danvers branch. His descendants are likewise noted for eight 
generations, followed by an appendix giving a summary of the descendants of 
Mark Tapley of Chicago, Ephraim of Virginia, and Hosea of North Carolina. 
The whole is well indexed, neatly printed, and serviceably bound. 

The Evolution of Stuyvesant Village (New York City): Tenth 
to Bleecker Streets, Broadway to Second Avenue and around 
there. By A. A. Rikeman, Mamaroneck, 1899. 8vo, cloth, pp. 88. 

i go i.] Book Notices. I 87 

Between the years 1 568-1609, many of the Protestant Hollanders who fled 
from persecution came to Manhattan Island and settled upon the territory 
described in the title of this volume, which was afterward known as Stuyvesant 
Village. Miss Rikeman's ancestors were among them, hence her personal 
interest in that bit of local history. The material is drawn largely from 
tradition obtained from five generations who were well informed in the local 
affairs, with whom the author has long been in touch. The book is purely 
historical, and is full of interest. Copies may be had of the author at Mamar- 
oneck, N. Y. Price, $1.25 each. 

Genealogy of the Dickey Family. By John Dickey, Worcester, Mass. 
F. S. Blanchard & Co., 1898. 8vo, Half Mor., pp. 322. 

After the death of Mr. Dickey, the compiler of this work, in 1894, his 
manuscript was placed in the hands of Blanchard & Co. for publication. The 
result is a splendid volume of interest to both the Dickey family and the 
genealogical world. William Dickey ajid his wife, Elizabeth, came from the 
north of Ireland some time prior to 1730, and brought with them three children: 
Samuel, Elias and Elisabeth; the three Dickeys furnishing the title of this 
book. The work is divided into three parts: — part 1, Samuel Dickey and his 
descendants; part 2, Elias Dickey and his descendants; part 3, Elisabeth 
Dickey (married John Hall of the north of Ireland). The book is most 
thoroughly indexed. Copies may be had of the publishers. 

Complete Lineage of the Sturges Families of Maine, 1530 to 1900, 
from De Turges, England, and Cape Cod, Mass., to Vassalboro and 
Gorham. With other Sturges Genealogy. Compiled by Alonzo Walton 
Sturges, Lewiston, Me., 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 40. 

This compilation is the larger growth of a pamphlet published by the same 
author in 1898 under the title "A few Stray Leaves from Sturges Genealogy." 
Since that was issued Mr. Sturges has been in communication with various 
persons having information on this famliy, so that he is able now to trace the 
ancestry back 370 years. Edward Sturges, of New England, 1634, was the 
progenitor of the American family, and in addition to his descendants in the 
various branches of Vassalboro and Gorham, Maine, this volume gives a 
partial genealogy of the Coleman family. 

Albermarle County in Virginia. Giving some account of what it 
was by Nature, what it was made by man, and of some of the men 
who made it. By Rev. Edgar Woods. The Michie Company, Charlottesville, 
Va., 1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. 412. 

" Public affairs are abundantly recorded," says the author. " Not only are 
they set forth in the countless Journals of the day, but scores of ready pens are 
waiting to embody them in more permanent form in histories of our own times." 
Private events then, are those to which the author of this work has turned his 
attention. Events of travel, toil, settlement, public and private achievement, 
and all the facts that constitute the growth of any locality. The historical 
narrative concluded, the author then takes up the various families in alpha- 
betical order and gives a short sketch of each with reference to the more 
prominent members. These "Accounts of Families " occupy more than half of 
the volume. 

New Hampshire, Lake Region Inscriptions. Whiteface, Inter- 
vale, Sandwich, Perkins Ground, New Durham, Further Memorials 
of Meredith, Worcester, Mass. Pub. by Franklin P. Rice, 1900. 8vo, 
pamphlet, pp. 28. 

Mr. Franklin P. Rice of Worcester, Mass., informs us that he has entered 
into a three year's arrangement for the management and operation of the 
Systematic History Fund, which was instituted with the purpose to assist the 
printing and publication of certain elementary historical material. The inten- 
tion of this undertaking is broader than implied in antiquarian or genealogical 
research alone, being to preserve, arrange, and make accessible original data 
which is the foundation of all history. Small editions are to be printed, and the 
desire is to place these publications in as many public depositories as possible. 

1 88 Book Notices. [July, 

The cooperation and patronage of Librarians and others are solicited in this 
movement to make accessible original sources of history. While operations 
under the Fund are not confined to any particular locality, nor restricted to any 
special class of matter within the broad field to be developed, it is natural that 
the first work undertaken should be in the vicinity of Worcester; as it is 
thought advisable that the personal records of a place should be, so far as 
possible, completed before other work is attempted. Two publications — The 
Worcester Coimty Warnings, and The Vital Records of Auburn — have been 
issued. The latter of these is a paper covered volume of 142 pages, and gives 
the records to the end of the year 1850, with inscriptions from the Old Burial 
Grounds. Besides these two publications, Mr. Rice has issued the Worcester 
Book, a Diary of Noteworthy events in Worcester from 1657 to 1883, paper, pp. 
159; Proceedings at a dinner to Mr. Rice in recognition of work accomplished 
in the development of systematic history; and nearly 100 other publications of 
a similar character. This enterprise of furnishing indexed information to the 
antiquary, genealogist and historian, is certainly a most worthy one and deserves 
the hearty cooperation of all libraries and similar institutions. 

A Complete Roster of Colonel David Waterbury, Jr.'s Regiment 
of Connecticut Volunteers. By A. H. Clark, 1897. Published by A. S. 
Clark, 174 Fulton St., N. Y. City. Price, $1.00. 

This was the first regiment of infantry responding to a call for volunteers 
for the defence of New York City against the British in the American Revolu- 
tion, and the material here is printed for the first time from manuscript records 
in the possession of the publisher, with notes compiled from authentic historical 
sources. The lists comprise officers and privates of ten companies. Copies are 
for sale by the publisher. 

Vital Statistics of Seymour, Conn, Vol. 3. Published by W. C. 
Sharpe, Seymour, Ct., 1901. 8vo, paper, pp. 88. Price $1. Postage 3 cents. 

Mt. Sharpe's indefatigable labors in this field are deserving of our highest 
praise. The first of this series was issued in 1883, the second in 1892. The 
records begin with the incorporation of the town, in the first volume, and in this, 
the third, cover the period from Jan. 1, 1892 to Jan. 1, 1901, giving births, mar- 
riages and deaths, and the records of Trinity Church, and the Congregational 
Church, with complete index to the whole. 

The Genealogy of the Lineal Descendants of William Wood 
who settled in Concord, Mass., in 1638. Containing also Revolu- 
tionary and other Records. Compiled by Clay W. Holmes, Elmira, N. 
Y., 1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. 365. 

William Wood was born in England in 1582, emigrated from Mattock, 
Derbyshire in 1638 and went to Concord, Mass., where he was one of the first 
settlers. He had. one son and one daughter. The descendants of the former 
are given for ten generations as completely as possible in this excellent vol- 
ume, and those of the latter, who married Thomas Wheeler, are traced in one 
line for three generations. The book is a model of arrangement, and its paper, 
typography, and general makeup are a pleasure to see. The second part of 
the work is replete with historical information including individual war records, 
and closes with a very complete index. Mr. Holmes, as historian of the 
Smithfield branch, intends to continue his labor and expects later to publish 
information concerning that family. 

The Jamesons in America, 1647-1900. Genealogical Records and 
Memoranda. By E. O. Jameson, illustrated. Published in Boston, Mass., 1901. 
Printed by the Rumford Press, Concord, N. H. Royal octavo, pp. 599. Price$7.oo. 

We recall the splendid history of Medway, Mass., compiled by Dr. Jame- 
son, and published in 1886 by the Town, and we turn to this with great expec- 
tations. Nor are we at all disappointed. The volume embodies the results of 
more than forty years of inquiry and research, the former conducted by means 
of printed circulars, the latter through the assistance of town clerks, registers 
of probate, and professional genealogists. The Jamesons have all come from a 
common ancestry in Scotland, concerning which the author in an introduction 

1 90 1.] Book Notices. I 89 

of seven pages, gives interesting information, illustrated with cuts of the arms 
of various clans. James Jameson and his wife, Sarah, were the first persons of 
the name known in America. They resided in Boston as early as 1647, where 
they had five children, three sons and two daughters. The descendants of 
these sons are traced in this work five generations and then follow accounts of 
the Jamesons of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maine and New Hampshire, and a 
supplement of additional data, received too late for insertion in the preceding 
pages. The volume is one of the most attractive family histories we have seen 
and it will surely remain a monument not only to the memory and honor of the 
Jamesons in America but to its compiler as well. A limited royal edition in 
leather and gold, at nine dollars per copy is also published, and copies of either 
may be had of the author, No. 31 Greenwich Park, Boston, Mass. 

The History of South Carolina in the Revolution, 1775-1780. By 
Edward McCrady, LL.D., New York. The Macmillan Co., 1901. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. xxxii.-899, gilt. 

Mr. McCrady, as president of the Historical Society of South Carolina, and 
as author of "The History of South Carolina under Proprietary Government," 
and "The History of South Carolina under the Royal Government," is emi- 
nently qualified to take up the interesting and valuable work as set forth in the 
title of this book. It is a valuable contribution to our historical literature, and 
shows an enormous amount of labor and painstaking research, all directed by 
the instinct of the true historian. The story is told in good narrative style that 
holds the interest, and the reader feels from cover to cover that the author is 
telling the events exactly as his researches have shown him they occurred. 
The work is supported by constant reference to authorities consulted, and is 
embellished with six maps of the period. Colonel McCrady has done a com- 
mendable work that shows his intimacy with the details of the history of his state. 

The Parish Register of Christ Church, Middlesex Co., Va., from 
1653 to 1812. Published by The National Society of the Colonial Dames of 
America in the State of Virginia. Richmond, Wm. Ellis Jones, 1897. Quarto, 
cloth, pp. 341. 

The section comprised within the present Middlesex Co., was at first 
included in Lancaster, but was divided shortly after 1666 into the two parishes 
of Lancaster and Middlesex. The original vestry book of this parish is still 
preserved in the Episcopal Seminary of Alexander Co., Va., and the copy here 
published through the energy and enterprise of the Virginia Colonial Dames, 
was made by Mrs. Sally Nelson Robbins, of Richmond, a member of that 
Society. The copy was very carefully compared with the original by a com- 
mittee of the Virginia Historical Society, of which our esteemed friend Mr. 
Wm. G. Stannard, Corres. Sec. and Librarian, was a member. The volume 
includes, " Burialls, Christinings, Marriages, etc." arranged chronologically, 
covering the period 1653 to 1812, and is for sale by the Virginia HisJ»rical 
Society, Richmond, Va. 

Peter Prudden. A Story of His Life at New Haven and Mil- 
ford, Conn., with the Genealogy of some of His Descendants, and an 
Appendix containing copies of Old Wills, Records, Letters and 
Papers. By Lillian E. Prudden, 1901. Tuttle, Morehouse & Co., New Haven, 
Ct. i2mo, cloth, pp. 169. 

The material for this attractive little volume was collected during leisure 
hours by Mr. Henry H. Prudden of New Haven, who unfortunately died 
before the work was completed — if a genealogical work ever is completed. 
Miss Prudden has compiled the present volume from his papers and note 
books, and published it with the hope of stimulating some other member of the 
family to continue the work. " The genealogical lists are complete only in the 
line of descent which includes the writer's own family," though much other 
data is given, and the family carried to the ninth generation. 

Samuel Slade Benton, His Ancestors and Descendants. By Josiah 
Henry Benton, Jr. Privately printed, 1901. L. 8vo, cloth, pp. 354. 

This volume, of which 250 copies were printed by the Merrymount Press, 
in March, 1901, is reserved for private distribution, and is therefore not for 

IQO Book Notices. [July, 

sale. Its mechanical construction is of a like pattern to Mr. Benton's other 
publications, with early imprint headlines, and is put together with his usual 
excellent taste. It is the story of his own family, which Mr. Benton " has 
endeavored to tell in such a way as to give the book some historical value." 
He has done it, for the mass of data will interest all descendants of Edward 
Benton, the progenitor of the American family of that name. 

History and Genealogy of the Carpenter Family in America, 
from the Settlement at Providence, R. I., 1637 to 1901. By Daniel 
Hoogland Carpenter of Maplewood, N. J. The Marion Press, Jamaica, N. Y., 
1901. 8vo, half leather, pp. 370. 

We have waited long and hopefully for this book; and, though occassional 
bits of news regarding its progress have floated to us, and made our expecta- 
tions of a high order, the work far surpasses our greatest hopes. Externally 
and internally — in binding, paper and print — it is good to see and sensible; in 
the matter of contents it is a monumental labor. There are three distinct 
families of the name in America. All come from England, and are known in 
this country as The Providence Family, The Rehoboth Family, and the Phila- 
delphia Family. The last has been "written up" in Mr. Chas. P. Smith's 
"Lloyds & Carpenters," the Rehoboth branch in Mr. Amos B. Carpenter's 
voluminous work, and this, of the Providence Family, completes the cycle. 
It begins with William Carpenter of Providence, and carries his descendants 
to the present generation, through Long Island, Westchester Co., Duchess Co., 
Ulster Co., and Rensselaer Co., N. Y., New York City, Nova Scotia, New 
Brunswick, Michigan, New Jersey and Ohio. The work is profusely illustrated, 
and contains several maps and facsimiles of records. Only 150 copies are 
issued, of which 100 are already subscribed. 

Field Genealogy. Being the Record of all the Field Family, 
Whose Ancestors were in this Country prior to 1700. By Frederick 
Clifton Pierce. Two volumes. W. B. Conkey & Co., Chicago, 1901. Imperial 
octavo, cloth, pp. 600, 601-1196. 

Another voluminous work added to the already large list from the pen of 
this compiler. It traces the descent from ancestors located in Massachusetts, 
Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire and Virginia, all 
descendants of the Fields of England, whose ancestor Hurbutus De la Field, 
was from Alsace-Lorraine. Of the historical matter incorporated we quote 
from the Table of Contents as follows: Early History, Origin of the name, 
Arms, English Homes, The Fields of other places in Wakefield, Horsmondon 
branch, Fields of Heaton, Yorkshire branch, College graduates, Revolutionary 
Soldiers, Pensioners of the Revolutionary War, also the genealogies of the 
various branches in America, giving many thousand names. The work was 
compiled at the instigation of John Spafford Field, and the English researches 
were supervised by the late Osgood Field of Rome, Italy. The book is a 
wonder in the matter of voluminous detail, and it grew so from its first inception 
that it was finally published in two volumes, each about twice the size originally 
intended. There are 1 196 pages of closely printed matter, and, nearly 300 half 
tone illustrations. 

Genealogical Memoranda Relating to the Family of Merriam. 
By Charles Pierce Merriam and C. E. Gildersome-Dickinson, London. Privately 
printed at the Chiswick Press, 1900. Quarto boards, pp. 99 and chart. 

The name Merriam is now a distinctly American name. The family in 
Kent County, Eng., has died out, the compiler of this work, born in America, 
has been for a number of years the only one of the name in the London directory. 
In America, however, the descendants of George and Joseph Merriam, who 
settled in Concord, Mass., 1638, have increased. These three brothers were 
sons of William of Hadlow, in Kent, Eng., and it is of the Merriams prior to 
the emigration that this volume treats, giving wills, parish registers, feet of 
fine, lay subsidies, poll-books and pedigrees. The imprint of the Chiswick 
Press determines the mechanical merit of this work, and Mr. Merriam's thirty 
year's residence in England, its authentic and painstaking research.

History of the Barr Family, beginning with Great-Grandfather 
Robert Barr, and Mary Wills; their descendants down to the 
latest child. By Rev. Wm. B. Barr of Hoboken, N. J., 1901. i2mo, cloth, 
pp. 216. 

Of the Church, the State and the Family, the author of this work attaches 
the most importance to the last, because it lies at the foundation of the others. 
Hence, if it is incumbent upon the Church and the State to keep careful record 
of their historic events, it is equally important that the family should do the 
same. This family is "scattered from Plymouth Rock to the Golden Gate, 
from Alaska to South America," and Dr. Barr has spent much time, patience, 
and money in gathering their records. The Barrs are of Scotch-Irish descent, 
of "good Psalm singing Presbyterian stock," and began in this country with 
Robert Barr, who was born in Donegal Co., Ireland, and came to this country 
in 1790, whence he settled in Huntingdon Co., Penn. He had five sons and one 
daughter, all of whom are traced through their descendants to the present 
generation. The most interesting part of this book is the language in which 
the story is told — sprightly, eloquent, original. The volume is well printed, 
well illustrated, and thoroughly indexed. For copies, at $2.00, postage 30 cts.,

Ancestral Chart of Eleven Generations. Arranged and copy- 
righted by Miss Georgiana Guild of Providence, R. I. 9 x 12^. Price, $5.00. 
Edition 100. 

Miss Guild has produced the most artistic form of genealogical chart 
which has as yet come to our notice. It is printed on heavy, pure white paper, 
with the rulings and printed matter in blue with red initial letters. The chart 
consists of title page, dedication, page of directions, 33 leaves for genealogical 
notations, 11 pages for additional notes, and nine for index. All are bound 
together lengthwise with blue ribbon, the whole forming a most attractive 
record book worthy of a place on any library table. The arrangement is much 
the same as that issued by this Society. The first page, "Chart A," carries the 
compiler back six generations, from which point each of the 32 ancestors is 
carried back five generations upon a separate chart. This collection of pages 
forms the completed record; and, forseeing errors and corrections, Miss Guild 
has arranged a separate set of "Working Charts," the contents of which, when 
complete and satisfactory, can be transferred carefully by any good penman to 
the "Ancestral Chart." The whole work is ingeniously conceived, carefully 
worked out, and beautifully executed. Copies may be had of Miss Georgiana 
Guild, 34 Pratt St., Providence, R. I. Price, $5.00 for Ancestral Chart, $2.00 per 
set for Working Charts. 

Philip and Philippa, A Genealogical Romance of To-day. By 
John Osborne Austin, 1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. 183. 

Mr. Austin has tried his hand at a new field of genealogical literature, and 
we frankly confess it difficult to reconcile. The story is one of the union of 
two last representatives of two different branches of the same family, one Eng- 
lish and the other American, one a girl of seventeen, the other a youth of 
twenty-five. They have never seen each other, though he knows of her exist- 
ence, and his quest of her takes him through many lands — a quest which results 
of course in matrimony, patrimony and harmony, "forever after." 

X The Blair Family of New England. Compiled for Mr. William 
Blair, Chicago, 111., by Miss Emily Wilder Leavitt. Boston. David Clapp & 
Son, 1900. L. 8vo, pp. 194, illustrated. 

The contents of this volume suggest its scope:— The Blair coat-of-arms, 
the Blairs of Ulster Province, the first of the New England family, six genera- 
tions of the Blairs in America, Capt. William Blair of Boston, William Blair of 
Framingham and Shrewsbury, Mass., the Blairs of New Hampshire, the descent 
of Mrs. Samuel Blair from John Frary.and John Stow, Mrs. William Blair's de- 
scent from Rev. Peter Thacher and Richard Seymour, addenda, index. The 
whole is well put together with good and tasteful mechanical effect.

The object of this Society is the discovery, procuring, preservation and 
perpetuation of whatever may relate to American Genealogy, Biography and 
Local History; and it aims to cover the field of genealogical and biographical 
research more thoroughly than has been done by the public libraries or societies 
devoted to one particular locality or period. 

The Society was founded and incorporated in 1869. For nearly twenty 
years it occupied modest quarters in Mott Memorial Hall, No. 64 Madison 
Avenue. In October, 1888, rooms were secured in the Berkeley Lyceum, No. 
23 West 44th Street, where the Society remained until May, 1896, when the 
present building was purchased through the generous bequest of Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Underhill Coles and the substantial assistance of some of the members. 

The Society building, No. 226 West 58th Street, is a handsome five-story 
structure, with an attractive entrance, and, having lately undergone extensive 
alterations and repairs, is admirably suited to the uses of the Society. It 
contains a lecture hall handsomely decorated and well lighted, heated and 
ventilated, with a seating capacity of one hundred and seventy-five persons; 
a fire-proof library specially constructed with a view to safety, light, quiet and 
convenience, and an attractive room for general Society purposes open to 
members and their friends. 

The Society has, by careful and capable management, steadily improved, 
and has at present assets amounting to nearly $50,000.00, and a good income 
from dues and rentals ; it is under the management of a Board of Trustees 
elected by the members for alternating periods of three years. 

The membership of the Society, comprising a large number of our best 
known and prominent citizens, is made up of Annual, Life and Honorary Mem- 
bers. Annual Members pay an entrance fee of $10.00, and the sum of $5.00 per 
year dues. Life Members pay $50.00 in lieu of all dues and fees. 

Persons desirous of becoming members of the Society may address the 
Executive Committee. Members have the right of introducing visitors to the 
rooms and to the privileges of the Society. 

The Library has upon its shelves over five thousand volumes of Geneal- 
ogy, Biography and Local History, and nearly thrice that number of pamphlets 
and unbound books on these subjects, as well as many manuscripts of value. 
It is open to members and visitors from 10 A. M. to 6 P. m. on week days and 
holidays, and from 8 to 10 P. M. on Mondays, except during the months of 
August and September. 

Regular Meetings of the Society, at which addresses of historical interest 
are delivered, are held on the second Friday evening of each month, except 
June, July, August and September. 

The Society has progressed steadily in its particular sphere, and has been 
the means of awakening interest in many persons heretofore ignorant of or 
indifferent to their ancestral history; during the past decade this interest has 
greatly increased, and has resulted in bringing to light and preservation many 
records of value. Beginners in the Genealogical field will find that the Society 
with its collections, its "Record," and the accumulated experience of its mem- 
bers, offers advantages indispensable to their work. 

" Those who do not treasure up the memory of their ancestors do not deserve- 
to be remembered by posterity ." — Edmund Burke.

Vol. XXXII. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1901. No. 4. 


By Walter L. Fleming. 

(Continued from Vol. XXXII., page 135, of The Record.) 

But soon a change came in these pleasant relations. During 
nis stay m London, Livingston had conceived a plan for riddin^ 
the_ seas of the pirates who preyed upon the commerce of all 
nations. The plan was for the King to furnish Captain William 
Kidd an armed vessel of 30 guns and 150 men. Captain Kidd 
who knew the haunts of the pirates was then to go in search of 
them. The plunder taken from the pirates would pa y the 
expenses of the expedition. The King thought favorably of the 
scheme, and laid it before the Admiralty Board* However 
all the vessels of the navy were employed in the war with France' 
and this project failed. Next Livingston proposed a private 
venture, for the double purpose of apprehending the pirates and 
making a profit on the plunder taken from them. An agreement 
was made between Kidd and Livingston acting together and 
Lord Bellomont acting for himself, Lord Chancellor Somers the 
S* °l Shrewsbury, the Earls of Romney and Oxford Sir 
Edmond Harrison and others.* The King to show his approval 
retained for himself a tenth share in the enterprise. Bellomont 
secured a commission for Kidd as a privateer, and undertook to 
procure a grant from the King to some "indifferent trusty 
person of all the plunder that should be taken by Kidd Four- 
nltns of the cost of equipment of the vessel, amounting- to /i 600 
was advanced by Bellomont for himself and associates Kidd 
and Livingston advanced one-fifth, ^400. The ship, provided 
by Bellomont and his partners, raised the amount of their ex- 
penditures to ,£6,000, which Kidd and Livingston agreed to 
refund in case of failure of the undertaking. To secure this 
agreement Livingston made bond to Bellomont for ^10,000 and 

Kidd for ^20 000. The ship was to become Kidd's property in 
case he should deliver prizes to the value of /ioo,ooo to Bello- 
mont at Boston. Not more than one-fourth of the plunder was 
to go to the crew; the remainder was to be divided into five 
equal parts, four of which were to belong to Bellomont and his 
associates, and the rest to Kidd and Livingston f

IQ4 The Public Career of Robert Livingston. [Oct., 

Kidd sailed away in search of the pirates. Meeting with in- 
different success, he turned pirate himself, and ravaged the seas 
until Bellomont captured him in Boston. The promoters of the 
scheme were accused by political enemies of abetting Kidd in his 
crime. In Parliament the Tory party impeached several Whig 
lords charging them, among other things, with being connected 
with Kidd's piracies. They easily proved their innocence and 
were acquitted by the House of Lords.* Bellomont thought it 
was all the fault of Livingston, who had gotten up the scheme 
and recommended Kidd for the command of the ship. The 
governor reported his suspicion to the Lords of Trade. He wrote 
that as soon as Livingston heard of the capture of Kidd, he 
hastened to Boston and tried to "embezzel" the cargo of Kidd's 
sloop.f He also made every effort to obtain the surrender of his 
bond from Bellomont. 

The governor was at last convinced of Livingston's innocence, 
but so sore was he over the whole affair, that he did not send the 
proofs to the authorities in England. So the charges remained 
and afterwards caused much annoyance. Bellomont never for- 
gave Livingston for getting him into this trouble. He no longer 
considered him the best man in the colony. At every opportunity 
he said harsh things of Livingston. " He pinched an estate out 
of the poor soldier's bellies."J The governor was offended when 
Livingston set up a saw mill, and wrote to England his suspicions 
that Livingston would saw up the trees reserved for the navy.§ 
Bellomont thought that no person should own more than 1,000 
acres of land, and endeavored to have an act passed by the 
Assembly to vacate some of the extravagant grants made by 
Fletcher. || 

He thought the defeat of this measure was due to Livingston, 
who as a great landowner was opposed to it, though he would 
-not have been affected by it, his land having been granted by 
Governor Dongan. 

In Indian affairs Livingston kept well informed, and often 
was sent on missions to the Iroquois. He sent spies to Canada to 
find out the designs of the French prison, and deserters were 
examined by him, and any information obtained was at once 
transmitted to the governor.l He recommended opening up 
trade with the western tribes by sending 200 whites, who under- 
stood the Indians, to live among them, and build a fort (where 
Detroit now is), to protect them and secure the country.** At

Iroquois; they should be brought near the English settlements; 
forts should be build to protect them; they could be used as 
"bush lopers" against the French; trade with them should be 
carefully regulated; ministers should be sent to them to keep 
them from listening to French priests, and to convert them to 
Protestantism "which they much prefer."ft

Upon one occasion he informed the governor that there was 
an intrigue at Albany, between Colonel Schuyler and others, to 
keep the control of Indian affairs in their own hands, and that 
they had used Indian goods belonging to the Colony to secure 
the sachems to their interests. Bellomont thought that Living- 
stan was in the plot also.* 

Livingston's changes of political opinions had caused both 
parties to distrust him. Bellomont, who now disliked him as 
much as he had once liked him, fixed a time for his suspension, 
along with Smith and Schuyler, from the council. The reason 
for suspension was that they were "no Leislerians."f Bellomont 
died on the very night fixed for announcing the dismissal, and 
Livingston was saved for a time. 

Nanfan, the lieutenant-governor, was absent in Barbadoes 
when Bellomont died, and a dispute arose in the council as to who 
should act in his place. Livingston, with the minority, supported 
the claims of Colonel William Smith as being the oldest member 
of the council. The Leislerian majority wanted to elect a pre- 
siding officer by vote of the council. Livingston and his friends 
refused to appear at the meetings. A statement of the facts was 
sent by the majority to the lower house. That body passed a 
resolution that the authority devolved upon the council as a 
whole, and that the oldest member should be the presiding officer 
The majority answered that the lower house had nothing to do 
with the matter in dispute. \ 

The wrangle continued, and the lower house adjourned. A 
month later Nanfan arrived. 

Under Nanfan Livingston was retained in the council and for 
a while was a favorite of the lieutenant-governor, who endorsed 
his claims, and gave him a certificate that he was an all round 
good citizen, and that in Indian affairs his services were especially 
valuable. § 

About this time (1701), Livingston addressed a long com- 
munication to the Lords of Trade, setting forth the importance 
of New York as a barrier against the French and Indians; atten- 
tion was called to the encroachments of the French; the condition 
of the New York forts was made known; the suggestion was 
made that the method of pay and supply of the independent 
companies be investigated; he recommend that missionaries be 
sent to convert the Iroquois, and thus secure them to the English, 
and that forts be built to protect them; he gave information of 
the French settlement at the mouth of the Mississippi; the de- 
fensive system was explained. A form of colonial government 
in three provinces was proposed. The first province was to be 
made up of Virginia, Maryland and the Carolinas; the second 
province, of Pennsylvania, New Castle, the Jerseys, and part of 
Connecticut; the rest of Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hamp- 
shire and Massachusetts should compose the third province.

Io6 The Public Career of Robert Livingston. fOct., 

Each province was to raise .£5,000 a year for the common defense, 
and the King was to send over military stores and soldiers for 
garrison duty at certain specified posts. As a means of securing 
the frontier, 200 soldiers were to be discharged every two years, 
and lands granted to them on the frontiers. Recruits to the 
number of 200 were to be sent from England every two years. 
He makes the suggestion that soldiers cannot fight in the woods 
according to the manner of fighting in Europe. He proposed 
certain regulations for the production of naval stores, and sug- 
gested that in time of war a soldier should be appointed as gov- 
ernor of each province. In short, he outlined a complete plan of 
colonial government, for peace and for war, and there is evidence 
that the home authorities acted upon some of his suggestions.* 

Livingston had been the moving spirit of the aristocratic 
party in its opposition to Leisler, and this, added to his conduct 
in the council after the death of Bellomont, made him many 
enemies among the Leislerians. On this account he was unable 
to secure a settlement of his claims in the province, so he pro- 
posed to go to London again, to push his case before the Treasury 
and Board of Trade. The Five Nations were now inspired to 
request that he be sent to England to represent their troubles to 
the Queen, and to get missionaries for them.f The Leislerians 
now accused him of seeking a way to get his expenses paid. He 
was charged with fraud in the collection of quitrents and excises, 
and the assembly ordered an investigation of his accounts. It is 
hard to see anything illegal in influencing the Indians to choose 
him as their agent, but the assembly seemed to consider it a 
particularly grave charge, and a committee appointed to investi- 
gate the matter, asked him to purge himself of the accusation by 
his own oath. This he refused to do. He denied the authority 
of the assembly to investigate his accounts as collector for the 
royal revenues, and refused to submit his papers for inspection. 
The fact was the papers were not in his possession, having been 
turned over to Bellomont shortly before his death, and now his 
widow refused to give them up. Livingston, however, said 
nothing of this to the committee of investigation, but simply 
denied their right to inspect his accounts. The assembly 
charged him with the sum of £*i8,ooo which they said he had 
failed to account for, and an act was passed to confiscate his 
estate unless he should submit vouchers for that amount by a 
certain day. \ He failed to do this, and his property was confiscated. 

The Leislerians had succeeded in making Nanfan suspicious 
of Livingston, and he suspended him from the council giving as 
reasons for so doing, that Livingston had never cleared himself 
of complicity in the Kidd affair, that he was evidently guilty of 
fraud in the management of the excise, that he had refused to 
account for the money that had passed through his hands, that 
Bellomont had intended to suspend him from the council, and 
finally that by leaving New York he had deserted his duty as a 
member of the council. §

190 1. J The Public Career of Robert Livingston. 107 

When Lord Cornbury came out as governor he obtained the 
books and papers of Livingston from Lady Bellomont, and the 
accounts were found to be correct. The act of confiscation, how- 
ever, was not repealed, and Cornbury, who disliked Livingston, 
refused to notice his claims against the government. It was 
necessary to make a second visit to England. The action of the 
Five Nations in choosing him as their agent gave Livingston the 
opportunity, and he went to London again in 1702. Near the 
coast of England his ship was captured and plundered by a 
French privateer. Livingston lost some valuable books and 
papers, but managed to conceal the most important ones.* Upon 
reaching London he applied himself diligently to the affairs of 
the Five Nations, and for a year said nothing of his own business. 
He attended meetings of the Society for the Propagation of the 
Gospel in Foreign Parts, and made a great display of energy 
toward securing missionaries for the Five Nations. Two clergy- 
men were at last obtained from the Society for the Propagation 
of the Gospel, and sent over to New York.f 

In 1704, after arranging the business of the Indians, Living- 
ston set to work on his own affairs. An order in council was 
obtained confirming him in his various offices, and ordering his 
claims to be settled by the New York treasury.^ Yet he was not 
satisfied. This had been done once before, and the order had 
been disregarded by the governor and council. He waited and 
worked a year longer, and in 1705 the Queen granted to him 
directly a royal commission for all his offices. Yet his troubles 
were not ended. Lord Cornbury refused to recognize his com- 
missions from the Queen until he had investigated the whole 
matter. The investigation dragged on for two years, and not 
until 1708 did he obtain his offices again.§ The council again 
refused to pay his salary. 

In 1709, during the short administration of Lord Lovelace, 
Livingston was elected to the assembly from Albany County, and 
in 1 7 10 secured the passage of an act repealing the act of 1701 
confiscating his estate. || 

Hunter, the next governor, was a Scotchman, and greatly 
favored Livingston, his fellow-countryman. All the debts due 
him by the government were paid, except his salary as Secretary 
of Indian Affairs, to which the council still objected. Now again 
the appreciative Five Nations came to the rescue, and asked the 
governor to lay the matter before the Queen and request that he 
be paid.!" It was not until 17 17 that the arrears of his salary was 
paid, and then only on condition that Livingston should never 
again ask for a salary.** 

* N. Y. Col. Docs., IV., 1063. 

t One of these, the Reverend Thoroughgood Moor, not receiving any support in his mission 
to the Indians, went to New Jersey and took the place of a clergyman who was returning to 
England. He was so scandalized by the immoral conduct of Lieutenant-Governor Ingoldsby 
that he refused to admit him to the Communion. Ingoldsby threw him into jail, but the Rev. 
Thoroughgood escaped, and sailed on the first vessel for England. The vessel was lost at sea 
with all on board. A'. Y. Col. Docs., IV., 1074.

I 98 The Public Career of Robert Livingston. [Oct., 

It is quite interesting to trace the evolution of the office of 
Secretary of Indian Affairs while Livingston held it. At first he 
was a mere clerk or recorder of the proceedings of a Board of 
Commissioners, having no authority whatever. It is not long 
before he assumes the title of Secretary of Indian Affairs, and 
seldom mentions the superior commissioners. The next step was 
to transact business on his own authority. Then he secured a 
commission for the office for life from the crown. He had now 
left the Board of Commissioners far below, and dealt directly 
with the governor and the home government. The protests of 
the council and of the governor show how they regarded the in- 
creasing importance of the office. 

Regular minutes of all conferences with the Indians was kept 
from 1675. About 1750, they were collected and bound into four 
large volumes, which have since been lost.* 

In 17 1 1 several thousand Palatines from Germany, who had 
gone to England as refugees, were sent over to New York as 
wards of the government. Hunter was directed to set them to 
work at producing naval stores. For this purpose he bought 
6,000 acres of pine lands from Livingston for ,£4°° New York 
currency, and upon this tract the Palatines were settled. f A con- 
tract was made with Livingston to supply the settlers with bread 
and beer — one-third of a four penny half penny loaf, and a quart 
of beer to each person daily. Later the allowance of beer was 
not given to the women and children, but only to the men who 
worked. J 

Through the efforts of his enemies, Livingston had come to 
have in England the reputation of a sharper, and when Hunter's 
purchase of land and the bread and beer contract became known, 
an investigation was made by the Board of Trade. The Earl of 
Clarendon (formerly Lord Cornbury), wrote to the Lords of Trade: 
"I think it is unhappy that Colo. Hunter at his first arrival in his 
government fell into so ill hands, for this Livingston has been 
known many years in that province for a very ill man, he formerly 
victualled the forces at Albany in which he was guilty of most 
notorious frauds by which he greatly improved his estate, he has 
a Mill and a Brew house upon his lands, and if he can get the 
victualling of those Palatines who are so conveniently posted for 
his purpose, he will make a very good addition to his Estate, and 
I am persuaded the hopes he has of such a subsistence to be 
allowed by her Majesty were the Chief if not the only Induce- 
ments that prevailed with him to propose to Colo. Hunter to 
settle them upon his land, which is not the best place for Pine 
trees. ... I am of the opinion that if the subsistence be 
allowed the consequence will be that Livingston and some others 
will get Estates, the Palatines will not be the richer."§ 

Governor Hunter appointed a board of Inspectors to govern 
the Palatines, and of this board Livingston was made president. 
It was provided that he was always to be a member of the board. |

1 90 1 •] The Public Career of Robert Livingston . 1 g g 

The representatives of the Palatines made the complaint that 
Livingston endeavored to get into his own hands the manage- 
ment of all supplies. His private interests, they asserted, in the 
subsistence of the Palatines rendered it improper for him to be 
president of the board of Inspectors.* 

To the charges made against him, an answer was made by his 
many friends to the Lords of Trade that: "Mr. Livingston was 
always known to be a careful, industrious and diligent man, who 
by these more than by any other means hath got a considerable 
estate. It is true that he was accused by a faction in that coun- 
try of having defrauded the Govern 1 of great sums when he 
subsisted the forces at Albany, but it is as true that he hath 
honorably cleared himself, having fairly pas't his accounts before 
a committee of Council upon which he obtained an Act of 
Assembly for releasing him and his estate that was under a 
sequestration until he hath so pas't his accounts; and that the 
reason that induced the Gov r to deal with him was not so much 
his choice as advantage because the said Livingston made most 
reasonable and fair offers. . . . That Mr. Livingston under- 
took this with a prospect of advantage is so certain that it might 
have created an ill opinion of him if it were otherwise."! From 
the subsistence contract Livingston obtained more than ,£15, 000. \ 
Sometimes even Hunter grew suspicious of Livingston and 
said rough things about him. Once, thinking Livingston had 
endeavored to make trouble for him in England, he wrote: "I 
know him to be the most selfish man alive. ... I have suffered 
here by giving him too much countenance and if any Man has 
any advantage by the Palatines it is he."§ However, they con- 
tinued on good terms, and after Hunter returned to England he 
was still devoted to Livingston and was able to assist him in 
many ways in his dealing with the government. 

In the assembly Livingston was a faithful supporter of Hunter, 
who rewarded him (1715) by a confirmation of Dongan's patent 
to the Manor. || The additional privilege was given of sending a 
deputy to the general assembly, and in 17 16 Livingston took his 
seat in the lower house as the representative of Livingston Manor. 
Two years later (17 18) he was elected speaker, and held that 
position until 1725, when he resigned on account of old age. The 
house desired "that he would nevertheless assist them as often as 
his state of health would permit during his stay in town." 

Hunter upon leaving recommended Livingston to Burnet, his 
successor, as a very useful and capable man in Indian affairs,^ 
and he became Burnet's right hand man as he had been Hunter's. 
Burnet was persuaded by Livingston to recommend the appoint- 
ment of his son, Philip, to succeed him as Secretary of Indian 
Affairs. The salary had been abolished, but Livingston, without 
the knowledge of Burnet, managed to get it restored for his son.** 
This made the governor angry, and when later he tried to have

his son-in-law made treasurer of the province, Burnet thought it 
was too much, and he expressed his opinion pretty freely con- 
cerning "old man Livingston's attempt to provide for his family 
at the public expense."* 

In 1728 Livingston died. He had founded a strong family 
that for a hundred years was a power in New York politics, 
usually representing the popular party. He was a man of 
pleasant manners and insinuating address, and usually secured 
friendship at first acquaintance. Penniless when he came to 
Albany, he was soon in possession of small offices that gave him 
a steady income in ready money. This he saved and carefully 
invested in trade and lands, and was in a few years one of the 
wealthiest men of the province. He had a hard struggle against 
the exclusive ruling caste, but his fight was half won when he 
married into the Schuyler family. In business engagements he 
was honest and held faithfully to his agreements, but often his 
friends were alienated by his shrewd and sharp schemes for ob- 
taining advantages for himself, regardless of others. He 
expected others to do as he did — look out for themselves. His 
ideas were essentially modern in every respect. In this he was 
the type of the future American citizen.

In this year the immigration to the Onondaga country took on 
still greater strength and the transfers of title by ex-soldiers 
living farther east continued to be active. The greater part 
of the military lands was by the close of the year in the hands

brought into the market many claims held by heirs of former

By Emma J. Foster of Carmel, N. Y. 

The history of this old church, the annals of which have just 
been published in the Record, runs back to 1743 when Rev 
Ehsha Kent was installed the first pastor by the " Fairfield East 
Association." At that time the adjoining parishes in the South 
Ward of Dutchess Co. (now Putnam Co.), N. Y., since known as 
Southeast and Carmel, were distinguished as East and West Phil- 
ippi, being situated in the southeast part of the Highland Patent 
of the Philipse family. 

They afterward bore other names, civil and ecclesiastical, but 
these were more often used for many years. These parishes 
formed for a time the double charge of Elisha Kent, but after 

2 I A The Church of East Philippi. [Oct., 

1750 he confined his labors to the church of East Philippi, where 
he resided. 

The early settlers of this locality were principally from Cape 
Cod, and comprised numerous representatives of the families of 
Hall, Crosby, Doane, Paddock and Foster, and those with whom 
they intermarried. The pioneers came about 1740 and before 
1745 they built a log meeting house about a mile east of Dyke- 
man's Station on the Harlem Railroad, but all traces of it have 
disappeared, as well as the graves of the early worshippers that 
were near by. 

Rev. Elisha Kent, who left his charge in Newtown, Conn., be- 
cause conscientiously opposed to the existing religious establish- 
ment in that colony, purchased a farm of five hundred acres, Aug. 
3, 1743, on the "Oblong," adjoining Philippi, and now within the 
bounds of Southeast. Mr. Kent was one of the most influential 
men of his section, and was repeatedly appointed to perform the 
most difficult and important ecclesiastical duties. He continued 
pastor at East Philippi until his death, July 17, 1776. 

His grave and that of his wife, Abigail Moss, are in the old 
Southeast cemetery. He had five children, all of whom settled 
near him. Moss Kent, father of Chanceller Kent lived on a farm 
adjoining his father's, and the four daughters who married 
Charles Cullen, Malcolm Morrison, John Kane and Major Grant, 
all lived within a dozen miles of the East Philippi parsonage. 
The sons-in-law were royalists and the fortunes of war scattered 
the family, whose later members all became prominent in civil, 
judicial and scientific circles. 

Before 1761 the congregation outgrew the log church and a 
frame building was erected about two miles east of the first, and 
near the residence of Mr. Kent. The exact date of this second 
church edifice is not known, but it was probably about 1754, and 
it continued in use until 1794. We find this brief record under 
date of March 10, 1784. "It was voted that Theodorus Crosby 
sweep the meeting house and see that the doors aie kept shut 
for ye space of one year," for which he was to receive thirty 
shillings paid quarterly. The next year, "Jeremiah Burgess was 
chosen to sweep the meeting house 16 times a year welliox 3 dol- 
lars." In 1794 the present church was built two or three rods 
south of the site of its immediate predecessor. "It was 6 feet 
each way larger" than the old one, being fifty feet long and 38 
feet wide, and the original cost was ^744, 13^., 2d. This building 
was seriously damaged by fire in 1830 but was repaired on essen- 
tially the same plan; later an arched ceiling shut out the old gal- 
leries, no longer required for sittings. The pulpit stands between 
the entrance doors, and the late comer must face the assembled 
congregation as he enters. It stands on a rocky knoll facing 
westward, overlooking a wide expanse of farm land, a remote 
country church, but one with a rich and inspiring history. From 
the very first, its leading members were men of ability and 
forceful character, and the influences started here have been 
borne to many lands. 

It has been a mother of churches, giving thirty-two of its mem-

bers to form what is now the Presbyterian Church of Brewster, 
N. Y., and sending a colony to Phelps, N. Y., which organized the 
Presbyterian Church there. Fanny Crosby the famous hymn 
writer, was born in this little hamlet, and this was her first church 

A long succession of godly and able men have filled the pul- 
pit of the old church since the days of "Priest Kent," and six of 
them rest in the old cemetery near by. The old Sears' Burying 
Ground, so called because it lies adjacent to the farm and home- 
stead of the late Archibald Sears, was given by Frederick Phil- 
ipse for burial purposes. Here lie the early settlers: Crosbys 
Sears, Paddocks, Fosters, Bangs, Gage and Halls, all among those 
who planted this little colony in "N. Y. Province." 

Many of the inscriptions are becoming illegible and the stones 
are broken or prostrate. Church and cemetery are in these later 
days, suffering from neglect and the inability of the little band

services in the old church.

i 9 oi.] The Family of Dupuis, De Puy, Depew, Etc. 2 3 I 


By Frank J. Conkling, Brooklyn, N. Y. 

(Continued from Vol. XXXII., p. 144, of The Record.) 

5. A child, (not named), baptismal entry, New York Dutcji 
Church, February 14, 1677. Perhaps Maria, who was sponsor 
with her father in 1702, about which time she married Abraham 
Hendrickse Lent of Tarrytown or thereabouts and had the fol- 
lowing children: Aeltje, 1703; Hendrick, 1707; Catharina, 1711; 
Abraham, 1712; Geertje, 17 15; Johannes, 1717; Margrietje, 1720; 
Sarah, 1722, and Jacob, 1725. 

6. Sara, baptised at Flatbush, February 23, 1679. She became 
a member of the Tappan Church, April 15, 1702. The same 
church records her marriage, April 1704, with Herman Hen- 
drickse Blauvelt. Their children were also baptised there as 
follows: Marritje, 1704; Frans, 1706; Annetie, 1708; Hendrick, 
1710; Johannes, 1714; Abram, 1716; Isaac, 1718, and Maria, 1721. 

7. Geertje (Gertrude), baptised at Flatbush, September 18, 
1 68 1. No further record. 

8. Nicolaes, baptised in New York, October 17, 1686. He 
married Barbara , and had a son Willem baptised at Tarry- 
town, Mar. 24, 1 7 13, who married Marritje , and had a son 

Nickolaas baptised also at Tarrytown, June 12, 1742. The latter 
Nicholas is entered among the enlistments of New York, year 
1758. He is recorded as aged 16 and born in Westchester County. 
No further tracings of this line. 

9. Mary, baptised in N. Y. C, March 3, 1689. The record of 
the parents is as follows: " Francois Puy and Annie Elsten." No 
further record of the child or the mother. 

The only sons credibly traced to Francois Dupuis are the three 
given, viz: William, John and Nicholas. Unless John married 
again', and of this there is no evidence, he is not likely to have s&& 
but the one child (Geertje). If Nicholas had other children, the -. 
records do not show them. So that to William must be charged j^. 
the progenitorship of Senator Depew, and the further evidence 
to be offered makes the proposition seem more clear. 
Family of William Depew. 

1. Sara, born , married, N. Y. C, October 4, 17 14, Willem 

Dill, Thiel or Teil. The latter name is probably the nearest cor- 
rect. They had children baptised in New York and Tarrytown 
as follows: Geertruyd, 17 16; Johannes, 1717; Dorathea, 17 18; 
(William DePuw was god-father) and Elisabeth, 1723, (Thomas 
DePew and Cornelia his wife were God-parents). 

2. Abigael. The following is the only item found of this 
probable daughter of Willem: " Pieter Consje and Abigael de- 
Pue" had daughter Sara baptised in New York, October 23, 17 17. 
The sponsors were " Willem Thiel and Sara dePue." 

3. Thomas, born , married Cornelia Lendel. The rec- 
ords give them issue as follows: 1. Catharina, bap. N. Y. C, 

232 The Family of Dupuis, De Pny, Depew, Etc. [Oct., 

March 15, 17 19, (Sponsors, Hendrick Ryke, Willem Thiel and 
Margarietje Brestede). 2. Willem, bap. Tarrytown, April 23, 
1723, (Sponsors, Willem Teil and Sara his wife). He married 
Rachel, daughter of Elias Concklin (?) and had child, Christina, 
bap. Tarrytown, April 20, 1745. 3. Thomas (?) "Tomes DePou 
and Jantye Kanckelie" (Jannetje Concklin) had son Jan bap. 
Cortlantown, June 23, 1747, born Sept. 9, 1746. 4. Jan,* bap. 
Tarrytown, April 17, 1733. Parents as given were, "Tames De- 
Peuw and wife Marietje." Question, was this Thomas Depew, 
Sr., and his second wife ? 

4. Anna, bap. Tarrytown, August 2, 169S. Did she marry 
Hendrick Van Ess? 

5. Francois, bap. Tarrytown, August 20, 1700. His marriage 
in the Tarrytown church, June 3, 1727, is recorded as follows: 
"Frans DePew, j. m., en Maritje Van Thessel, j. d." The record 
also states that they were both born on the Cortlandt Manor. 
He being a resident there, and she a resident of Tarrytown. 
Subsequent records blended with traditional accounts of the fam- 
ily as given by Colonel Teetor in his article previously referred 
to, lends considerable color to the probable descent of Senator 
Depew from this couple, and more than likely through the eldest 
son, Hendrick. This line will be taken up again presently. 

6. Pieter youngest son of William Depew, bap. Tarrytown, 
March 28, 1703, married before 1729 Elisabeth Blauvelt of Rock- 
land County. They had issue: Abraham, born January 6, 1729 
(m. Rachel Blauvelt), Petrus, born December 17, 1732 (m. Annetje 
Van Dalse), and Isaac, born March 25, 1740. These were all from 
Tappan church baptisms; but there is evidence that the family 
afterward settled in Dutchess County. f Abraham had a son, 
Petrus, born March 12, 1753, and probably a son Abraham, both 

in the Revolutionary War from Dutchess.J Petrus (son of Pieter) ^/ 
had a son, Petrus, born February 2, 1759, also in the Rev. War 
from Dutchess. J 

Family of Francois Depew and Maritje Van Thessel. 

1. Hendrikus, bap. Tarrytown, April 27, 1728. Of him later. 
(Spo. Hendrik Van Texel and Antje do). 

2. Anneke, bap. Tarrytown, August 21, 1730. 

3. William (?) born 1732. Muster roll of Westchester County 
militia, 1758, says: "Born in Cortlandt," "Aged 26." There is no 
further record of William. 

4. Elisabeth, bap. Tarrytown, April 23, 1734, married October 
29, 1758, John Lent. 

5. Abraham, bap. Tarrytown, April 10, 1736. Died young. 

6. Sara, bap. Tarrytown, April 29, 1738. 

7. Abraham, bap. Tarrytown, April 30, 1743. Some of his 
children may be found among a list of baptisms given later. 

Returning to Hendrick, (son of Francois, of William, of Fran- 

* John D Pew, aged 24, born in Westchester, joined militia of that County in 1758. (Re- 
port of Historian, N. Y. S. Colonial Series, Vol. I.). 

t It would seem that as patriots occupying debatable ground in Rockland County, during 
the Revolution, they were forced to move; thus their entry into Dutchess.

cois), the only child that the records credit to him is Abraham, 
who was baptised at Tarry town, April 5, 1752. The mother's 
name was not mentioned. The sponsors were: "Frans Pue and 
wife," without doubt the parents of Hendrick. It is fortunate for 
this lineage, perhaps, that Abraham received so marked a distinc- 
tion as to have had his baptism recorded. The other children of 
Hendrick, and it seems evident that he had others, were not so 
favored. We have marked Abraham, for Colonel Teetor tells us 
that Abraham was the name of the gre&t-grand-father of Chaun- 
cey M. Depew, whom he would have descend from Nicholas the 
emigrant. To get down a little closer let us quote what the 
Colonel says: "Abraham Depew enlisted January 2, 1777, for the 
Revolutionary War, in Captain Jacob Wright's Company of the 
regiment, commanded by Col. Philip Van Cortlandt. He was 
promoted Corporal June i, 1777, and was discharged January 3, 
1780, on account of expiration of term of service. He married 
Catherine, a daughter of Captain James Kronkite, who was com- 
missioned Captain October, 19, 1775, and served in the Third 
Regiment, Manor of Cortlandt, commanded by Col. Pierre Van 

The church baptismal records of Tarrytown and Cortlandt, 
furnish very good grounds for confusion among the various 
Abrahams Depew. While there is an apparent lack of records in 
some directions, there seems to be a perplexing superfluity of 
fathers Abraham whose sons and daughters, to straighten out and 
place where they belong, would take a man with more wisdom 
than Solomon. It is doubtful if Colonel Teetor ever saw these 
records, therefore, had no occasion to pick out the family of Abra- 
ham the Ancestor of Doctor Depew, and place him genealogical- 
ly. This he might have done had he taken the time, and with 
close application, but he has done well when he tells us that 
"Great-grand-father Abraham" married Catherine, daughter of 
Captain James Kronkite. Believing that this is from knowledge 
possessed by the family of the Senator, it is highly proper to ac- 
cept it, and it enables us to select from the confusion a portion of 
the family belonging to this couple, which are found charged to 
them among the Cortlandtown records as follows: Esther, Bap. 
September 18, 1791; James Kronkright, born August 25, 1791, 
bap. 1793; Anne, born September 12, 1794; Elizabeth, bo. Feb. 6, 
1796; Henry, born May 18, 1798. It is this latter name, Henry, 
that makes the connection with the family of Hendrick reasonably 
complete. The name is the same; Henry is Hendrick modern- 
ized, and Abraham followed the prevailing custom of the times 
in naming a son for his father. This clears away the confusion 
to a certain extent among the baptisms mentioned, and which 
will be given at the finish of this paper. Whether the Senator 
descends from James Krankhite, or Henry or some other son 
whom Abraham may have had, the writer will not assume to sug- 
gest. The war record of Abraham will stand. Colonel Teetor 
very likely consulted the Revolutionary Archives of New York 
State for his information. In the same regiment and in the same 
company with Abraham, were also John, Francis, Cornelius and 

234 The Family of Dupuis, De Puy y Depew, Etc. [Oct., 

Henry Depew. As they are unaccounted for, unless we except 
John, may they not be the unrecorded sons of Hendrick, and 
thus brothers of Abraham ? 

From the Cortlandtown Baptisms. 

Abraham Depuw and Mary Cral (?) had child Sarah, born 
January 23, 1784. Sponsors, Herculus Lent and Wyntje Van 

Abraham Puw and Sarah Kranckheid, child Annatie, born 
August 19, 1783, bap. 1784. No sponsors to baptism. Question: 
Did Abraham, son of Hendrick, marry Sarah Kranckheid, for his 
first wife ?

Four children of Abraham Depuw, (mother not mentioned), 
Anne, Francis, Joseph and Phebe. All baptised July 20, 1800. 
No sponsors. 

Abraham Depuw and Amy Rehe, child Hester, born March 
15, 1802. No sponsors. 

From Tarrytown Baptisms. 

Frans, Jude and Abraham, children of Abraham Pue and 
Sarah Pue. Date of baptism uncertain, but probably during the 
year 1784. These would seem to be children of Abraham, son of 
Francois. The wife of this Abraham is supposed to have been 
Sarah Conklin. 

Among the Tarrytown marriages is found the following: 
" Elias DePew, j. m., born at Philadelphia and Catharina Storm, 
j. d., born at Philipsburg. Both living here." The marriage oc- 
curred in 1729. There is some doubt about the birthplace of 
Elias. The writer has been unable to place him among any of 
the lineages given. 

Errata. — Page 77, Record, foot-note, first line: "In this paper," read

Evidence of a traditional character comes to the writer from Mrs. L. E. 
Schoonmaker of New York City, a member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, that Nicholas and Francois Dupuis, the emigrants to 
New Amsterdam, were brothers, and as boys or young men were forced to flee 
from their homes in Paris in the year 165 1, victims of the religious persecutions 
of their time. 

This information is important, and the source, to Mrs. Schoonmaker, so 
straight, that the writer believes it should be accepted. The authority of Mrs. 


The Family of John Booth, of Shelter Island, N. V. 


Schoonmaker is her great-grand-mother, Maria, widow of Joseph DePuy of 
Roches™? Ulster County, Ion of Moses, and he of Nicholas the emigrant. 
Mrs. Schoonmaker was fourteen years of age when Mana DePuy died, and has 
always taken a great interest genealog.cally in the De Puy family; she has 
followed out many lineages from Nicholas through his son Moses, having that 
branch pretty well completed. . , 

Her information is that Nicholas and Francois left a home of weal h and 
prominence during the night, upon learning through a friend of the family that 
hey were to be made prisoners. She has in her possession a History of E ranee, 
during the wars of 1648-1654, and a lantern both of which are sa.d to have 
been brought to America bv her ancestor Nicholas She also posseses a manu- 
script written by Dr. Cornelius E. DePew of New York City, who was drowned 
on the coast of South America in 1822. His manuscript is confirmatory in 
several important details, naming the year (1651) as the time N 1C holas and 
Francois fled from Paris. . . ,. , , 

rif after all, tradition is correct in naming Pans as the probable birthplace 
of Nicholas and Francois Dupuis, we may conclude that Arto.s and were 
rather the homes for a time of these individuals respectfully, and not their 
places of birth as the records would imply.] .,,01 1 

The writer is much gratified with the endorsement by Mrs. Schoonmaker 
of the salient points contributed in this paper. 


By Lucy D. Akerly, of Newburgh, N. Y. 

Among the early land transactions re- 
lating to Shelter Island, we find a deed 
delivering the same to Ensign John Booth 
and Capt. Nathaniel Sylvester, on the 23 d 
of Mch., 1652, "according to the English 
custom of turf & twig." Some of the 
early deeds no longer exist so that it does 
not appear why John Booth should have 
had a share in the possession of the 
Island, since the proprietors then were: 
Thomas Middleton, Thomas Rouse, Con- 
stant Sylvester, and Capt. Nathaniel Syl- 

In 1656, Thomas Middleton purchased 
one quarter of Shelter Island (and also one 
quarter of Robins Island), from Thomas 

Rouse for John Booth who immediately resold the same to Capt. 
Nathaniel Sylvester for ^700 (Southold Town Rec, East Hamp- 
ton Town Rec, I., 96, 105. Moore's Hist. Address of 1890, Mall- 
man's Hist, of Shelter Island). 

We learn from the documents referred to above that John 
Booth had been in Barbadoes before he came to L. I. He is 
styled in deeds of land, etc., "Master," and "Gentleman," and was 
living in Southold as early as the i st Feb., 1656, and is described 
as "late of Shelter Island." 

Mr. J. Wickham Case mentions that John Booth was the only 

236 The Family of John Booth, of Shelter Island, N. Y. [Oct., 

large land owner in the town who omitted to put his house home lot 
on record as exacted by the order of 165 1. A list of his lands, how- 
ever, made in 1685, will be found in the SontJiold Town Records. He 
lived "between Benjamin Youngs, east, and John Herbert, west." 

We have no account of the wife of John Booth, and are even 
in ignorance as to her name. She and her child are mentioned 
on 20 Feb., 1656. There is abundant documentary evidence 
of the existence of four Booth sons, but we lack their birth dates, 
and the knowledge whether there were any daughters or not. 
Some of the Booth children were young in July, 167 1, when they 
were refused baptism by the Puritan Minister John Youngs. 
John Booth very naturally declined to pay his tax for Youngs' 
salary, and his cattle were distrained in consequence. He then 
petitioned Governor Lovelace for relief. Although the latter 
could not lawfully interfere, he wrote a letter of admonition to 
the Rev. John Youngs. {Documentary Hist, of New York, III., 
343, Brodhead's Hist, of the State of New York, II., 174). Evi- 
dently John Booth was not of the same "persuasion" as most of 
his contemporaries at Southold, it may be that he had leanings 
towards the Quakers. 

The son of Thomas Rouse had his earn cut off for being a 
Quaker, the Sylvesters sheltered Quakers in their island home, 
while we find John Booth with John Corey and John Swazey 
(both of whom are said to have been Quakers), and several others, 
refusing to take the oath of allegiance at New Haven in 1659. 
All of them are reported to have taken the cath in 1660. (Nezv 
Haven Col. Rec, 1653-61, pp. 285, 351, etc.) 

In 1675 John Booth was assessed on ,£147, and in 1683 on j£i$i. 
In 1686 his family consisted of 3 males and 2 females. At least 
one of his sons was married at that time, and had his separate 

John 1 Booth, the elder died intestate, on, or about, the 15 Aug., 
1689. Letters of administration were issued to his eldest son, 
Thomas Booth, on 6 Nov., 1691. (Pelletrau's Early L. I. Wills.)

He resided on Robins Island Neck which he inherited from his 
father. (Deeds of land in Patchogue, Robins Island Neck, etc., 
in 1689.) He was assessed on ^45 in 1683, and in 1686 had 4 
males and 2 females in his family. Letters on his estate were 
issued to his son and heir, Thos. Booth, Jr., 11 Feb., 1706. (Liber 
7, p. 290, N. Y. Wills.)

from his father, John Booth, on 16 June, 1689, a deed for the home 
lot of the latter, and lands between Tom's Creek and the Fresh 
meadows, etc. (Southold Town Rec.) "He lived," said Mr. J. 
Wickham Case, "in his father's house from 1689 to 17 15, after 
which time we have no authentic records, where he went, or 
when he died we do not know."

4. Charles 2 Booth (Ensign John 1 ), of Southold Town, who re- 
ceived on 27 June, 1689, from his father John Booth, according to 
the deed as follows: "Half of my upland in Corchaug, half of 
my meadow on the south side of Pehcconeck great Bay, or Riv- 
er, & one third of my meadow in Corchaug, as it lyeth in com- 
mon & partnership between my sons, John, Thomas, & Charles 
Booth." (SoutJiold Town Rec., II., 283.) 

He also received a deed on 26 Jan., 1692, from Mary, widow of 
Benjamin Horton, of land at Southold which had belonged to 
her said deceased husband, and of land at Southampton, once the 
property of her father, James Hampton, grandfather of her 2 d 
daughter, wife of Charles Booth. Half of the land could be sold 
with the consent of Charles Booth's brother-in-law, Thomas Lup- 
ton, of Southampton. (Southold Town Rec., II., 283, 285.*)

With the present number of this magazine is completed the publication of 
the Baptismal Records of the Reformed Dutch Church in New York City, 
down to the close of the year 1800. A reprint of these records in two volumes 
with indexes will soon be published. The first volume, covering the period 
from 1639 to 1730, with a complete index of names, is now ready for delivery, 
and the second volume will be issued as soon as the index can be prepared and 
printed. This publication containing as it does the names and dates of baptism 
of all the children, their parents and witnesses, baptised in the Reformed Dutch 
Church from its establishment in New York City in 1639, down to and including 
the year 1800, forms one of the most complete and valuable genealogical 
records ever published. It forms volume II. of the collections of the N. Y. 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, volume I. being the Marriage Records 
of the same church, and covering the same period. To the careful indexing, 
revision and printing of these records the late Dr. Samuel S. Purple devoted 
many years of able and painstaking labor, and no better guarantee of their 
accuracy could be given. The edition is limited to 100. Copies may be 
obtained from the Librarian at the rooms of the Society. Price, $15.00 per 

The season of genealogical excursions is over for this year, -and our 
enthusiastic friends are already returning to town with scrips full and pencils 
worn to the stubb. There are several kinds of these. The clergyman friend 
whose interest in the subject probably began in the book of Genesis and grew 
under the influence of his profession; the matronly friend who caught the fever 
from the emanations of a "Daughter's" badge, and now hunts ramifications; 
the juvenile genealogist who returns with a hopeless mass of detail that may 
never advance to classification; the professional genealogist whose clients 
anxiously await the results of summer excursions. Far and above these stand 
this and our kindred society of Boston, the New England Historic-Genealogical; 
for it is ours to serve as a guiding hand to all — it is ours to foster the spirit of 
genealogical research to appoint beyond the personal, to foster the production of 
genealogical literature that shall serve a general purpose. Be it fondly to be 
hoped therefore, that these and kindred societies will take up the work of the 
coming season with their scrips full and pencils worn to the stubb.

Weeks, John Abeel, a member of this Society for more than thirty years, 
died May 23, 190 1, at his residence at Cove Hill, Oyster Bay, L. I., aged eighty- 
one years. He was born January 7, 1820, in New York City and was the son of 
Robert Doughty Weeks and Julia Hall Brasher, daughter of Gasherie and 
Jane (Abeel) Brasher, all of New York City. His father was the first president 
of the New York Stock Exchange and was the seventh in descent from Francis 
Weekes, one of the earliest settlers of Oyster Bay, L. I. 

He graduated from the New York University in 1839, and studied law with 
' Judge George W. Strong of New York City. After being admitted to the bar 
he formed a partnership with Henry G. De Forest and opened a law office at 
58 Wall St., then a dwelling house and subsequently one of the most famous 
office buildings in the city. Here he had his office for more than forty years. 
He made a specialty of real estate and gained a reputation for ability and 
acquaintance with old New York property. One of his own real estate hold- 
ings, which he early acquired and kept as long as he lived, was the old Claren-

well as reputation, but his principles were such that he refused to profit by the 
opportunity afforded him by the panic of 1873, °f becoming one of New York's 
richest citizens. During this panic when securities were offered for almost 
nothing, he freely loaned his friends over $150,000, demanding only the usual 
rate for it, and thus saved them from ruin. It was estimated that this amount 
invested at the time in securities would have resulted in his making several 
millions of dollars. 

He was one of the founders of the Union League Club, and one of its most 
zealous and honored members. With Le Grand Cannon and a few others he 
raised the first negro regiment in the State of New York, and he was appointed 
by the Union League to represent it at the funeral of Abraham Lincoln. He 
was a member of the New York Historical Society and at one time was at the 
head of its executive committee. It was through his exertions that this society 
secured the Durr collection of Dutch paintings, one of the most valuable of its 
possessions. He was also prominently connected with the charities of the city. 
He was the president of the House of Refuge for many years, and the work 
which he performed in the interest of this institution entitles him to a place 
among the city's philanthropists. He was elected a member of this society, 
Dec. 10, 1870. 

He retired from the practice of his profession in 1880, to the old homestead 
at Cove Hill, Oyster Bay, built in 1809, near the site of the original homestead 
of his ancestor. Here he resided until his death in the enjoyment of his well 
earned leisure, and the friendship of such men as Wm. M. Evarts and Wm. 
Cullen Bryant with whom he was particularly intimate. 

Mr. Weeks was married January 10, 1849, at New Bedford, Mass., to Alice 
Hathaway Delano, who survives him. She was born November 29, 1827, in New 
Bedford and was the daughter of Joseph Clement Delano and Alice Howland, 
daughter of Weston Howland, all of New Bedford, Mass. He leaves four sons 
and two daughters, all born in New York City: Arthur Delano, Henry de 
Forest, Frederick Delano, John Abeel, Jr., Alice Delano and Sarah Carnes 
who married June 3, 1893, Francis Laurens Vinton Hoppin.

land family may be of interest to the readers of the Record. It appeared in 
Devon Notes and Queries, Vol. I., part 5, January, 119, in answer to a 
query of mine, and is signed Helen Saunders:

The British Museum has a quarto tract entitled "A sermon preached at 
the funeral of John Molford, Esquire, of Nymet Episcopi, in the Diocese of 
Exeter, who died (aged 18 years), the 21st day of June, and was buried at South

as Mulford House, now, October 3, 1900, occupied by a medical man. It form- 
erly belonged to the Rev. J. Bawden. The Bishop Nympton registers can 
probably supply further information. stuart c. wade,

The Citizen Company, 1899. 8vo, cloth, pp. vi-479. 

This volume of Bailey genealogy was published by direction of the Bailey 
(Bayley) Family Association. Its three parts treat respectively of James 
Bailey of Rowley, John of Salisbury and Thomas of Weymouth, the three

original settlers, and their descendants. These branches of the family have 
never before been printed. The arrangement is excellent, the subject matter 
being confined mostly to genealogical compilation, without the usual concom- 
mitant of fullsome biography. Of 295 copies originally printed, about 220 have 
been disposed of; the balance are for sale at $2.50 per copy and may be had of 
Mr. Hollis R. Bailey, 53 State St., Boston, Mass., Room 905. Mr. Bailey who 
is Secretary of the Family Association has compiled a careful, well indexed 
volume, attractive in its mechanical construction, and his labors have been 
assisted by Mrs. Gertrude E. Bailey and Mrs. Abbie F. Ellsworth, the former 
of whom compiled the index. We note with particular pleasure the system of 
typography which is so clear and methodical that it leaves no room for con- 
fusion. The seven reports of the annual gatherings from 1894 to 1900 inclus- 
ive, contain much valuable matter and are on sale at 50c. each, except 1894, 
which is 25 cents. 

The Sharpes. 8vo, cloth, pp. 212. 

Mr. W. C. Sharpe of Seymour, Conn., has been conducting this valuable 
serial on the Sharpe Family since January 1893. The papers of about 4 pages 
each are published monthly and contain information supplemental to that pub- 
lished in 1880 by the same author. The present volume contains the papers 
from Jan., 1893, to Oct., 1896 inclusive, neatly bound in cloth. 

Register of Old Suffolk Chapter, Sons of the American Rev- 
olution, 1900. Chelsea, Revere and Winthrop, Mass. Printed for the Chap- 
ter (Boston 1901). 8vo, pp. 106, 111. 

Although this volume is primarily a regulation register and year book of 
the Society, it contains an interesting address on the battle of Chelsea, May 27, 
1775, and is so marked on the cover. The battle of Chelsea has been passed 
over by historians, mainly, as Mr. Bosson says in his address before the Society, 
because of their partisan prejudices and the cause of the battle itself, namely, 
jealousy between the field officers. It was not however without importance, 
for Col. Putman, John Stark and Dr. Warren took part in the engagement and 
it resulted in the capture of four cannons, twelve swivels, and clothing and 
money belonging to a British schooner. 

Nova Scotia Archives, Vol. II. A Calendar of two Letter- 
Books and one Commission-Book in the Possession of the Govern- 
ment of Nova Scotia, 1713-1741. Edited by Archibald M. Macmeachan, 
Halifax, N. S., 1900. 8vo, pp. 270. 

These documents, here published by authority of the Legislative Assembly, 
relate to the administration of government during Walpole's long peace, and 
illustrate the experiment of governing a French population by English ideas. 
The manuscripts are part of a large collection relative to the history of Nova 
Scotia which was gathered, arranged, indexed, bound and catalogued by the 
late Thomas Beamish Atkins, Commissioner of Public Records. They num- 
ber over 535 volumes besides nine boxes of unbound papers, all preserved in 
the Province Building at Halifax. 

New Ipswich in the War of the Rebellion, What its Men and 
Women did. By Mrs. L. A. Obear, New Ipswich, N. H., 1898. 12 mo, cloth, 

Mrs. Obear writes us in sending this little book, " Had I realized that this 
volume, written to perpetuate the memory of the deeds done by the men and 
women of this little town, in the war for Freedom and for the Union, was also 
a record of what was done by many another town all over New England, I 
might and should have taken time and pains to make it better worth preserving 
as history." In reply we have to say that what is well done, be it large or 
small is worth preserving as history. Mrs. Obear has given a brief and inter- 
esting account of her subject and closes the book with a list of her townsmen 
who served as far as their names could be obtained.

' Authors and Writers associated with Morristown, with a Chap- 
ter on Historic Morristown. By Julia Reese Colles, iSoS. Voet Bros 
Morristown, N. J. Svo, pp. 407. 111. 

This excellent work has reached its second edition, the first having been 
published in 1893. Usually such books have only a local interest and lack 
more or less true literary finish. Not so however with Mrs. Colles' work. It is 
a story of a section rich in associations of distinguished names in the annals 
of literature, history and art; it is a story of a town that has a charm all its own, 
"the most beautiful within a hundred miles of New York" as Dr. Theo. L. 
Cuyler has said: it is a story handled skillfully, attractively and with a breadth 
that gives it a general and well merited value. 

Beckwith Notes. With some Account of Allied Families. Nos. 
2 and 3. 8vo, pamphlets, 1899, 1901. 

Marvin Beckwith and his Wife Abigail Clark, their Colonial 
Ancestors and their Descendants. Svo, pamphlets, 1899. 

The latter of these constitutes number one of this series of pamphlets on 
the Beckwith family, compiled by A. C. and E. S. Beckwith of Elkhorn, Wis- 
consin. There is no particular limit set for the series. Marvin Beckwith was 
of Southmgton, Ct., and the work of publishing the pamphlet bearing his name 
was the outcome of a search for his parentage, which resulted in proving him 
third in descent from Matthew Beckwith of Old Lyme, son of Matthew who 
came over about 1645, and settled first in Hartford. Nos. 2 and 3 relate to 
other descendants of Matthew Beckwith not in Marvin's line. It is estimated 
that a full " muster roll" should include 7,000 names of which nearly 4,000 are 
still unknown. 

History of the Old Argilla Road, in Ipswich, Mass. By Thomas 
Franklin Waters. Publications of the Ipswich Historical Society, No. q 
Salem, 1900. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 43. 

This pamphlet is published in order to record the list of land holders along 
the Old Argilla Road, and also to give brief sketches of the proprietors them- 
selves. Numerous foot notes, referring to the five volumes of Ipswich Deeds 
now deposited in the Registry of Deeds at Salem, afford opportunity and guid- 
ance to those who desire to make more extensive research in the matter. 

The Hotel Cluny of a New England Village, by Silvester 
Baxter, and An Old Ipswich House, by W. H. Downes. Salem, Mass 
1901. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 53. 

These papers constitute No. 10, of the publications of the Ipswich Histor- 
ical Society, and give a most interesting account of the historic house now occu- 
pied by the Society itself. It is said to be the most pronounced specimen of 
colonial architecture and has been preserved exactly as it was in early times 
It belonged originally to John Whipple and was built about 1650. The Ips- 
wich Historical Society is indeed fortunate in being able to house itself amid 
such historic environment.

Mary Griswold Lane, of Killingworth and Wolcott, <to Connec-

8vo, pamphlet, pp. 64. 

Mr. A. C. Beckwith, who was instrumental in getting out the Beckwith 
Notes, has also assisted in the publication of this pamphlet, which is intended 
to correct errors regarding the Lanes of Wolcott, Ct., which have appeared in 
Rev. Sam'l Orcutt's History of that town, and in Rev. James H. Fitts' "Lane 
Genealogies." Its corrections are based on "conflict of authorities" relative 
more particularly to the early generations of a few allied families. 

K A History of Adams County, Ohio, from its Earliest Settle- 
ment to the Present Time, including Character Sketches of the 

250 Book Notices. [Oct., 

Prominent Persons identified with the First Century of the 
Country's Growth, and containing numerous Engravings and Illus- 
trations. By Nelson W. Evans and Emmons B. Stivers. West Union, Ohio. 
Pub. by E. B. Stivers, 1900. Imperial Octavo, sheep, pp. viii-946. 

This history of Adams County, Ohio, is far beyond the usual, conventional, 
machine-made county history, and deserves a prominent place in the historical 
literature of this country. While it is apparently limited in title, yet in fact it 
is largely a history of Southern Ohio. The county originally bordered on the 
Ohio, from Ripley, O., to Ashland, Ky., and extended the same width north to 
include Franklin County, occupying what is now fourteen or more counties. 
Adams was the fourth county organized and the third settled. Within its con- 
fines lies the Great Serpent Mound that has been such a source of interest; and 
that with other natural curiosities make the articles of this book on the geology 
and mineralogy of the county among its most interesting chapters. The work 
gives full accounts of the Indians, the settlements and lives of the Pioneers, of 
the Territorial Courts and those later, sketches of the Judges and members of 
the Bar, members of the Legislature and Congress. It gives revolutionary 
records and records of the Civil War, with an account of the Morgan Rebel 
Raid and the Cholera Scourges of 1835, 49> an d '5 1 - The operation of the 
underground railroad is fully described, and then follows township histories, 
prepared by Hon. E. B. Stivers. The Pioneer sketches were prepared by Mr. 
Evans of Portsmouth, Ohio, and form the great feature of the book. The 
edition is limited to 500 copies, of which there are now less than 100 for sale. 
The price is $10 per copy, and may be had of Mr. Nelson W. Evans, 135 W. 
Second St., Portsmouth, Ohio. 

Homes of the Massachusetts Amcestors of Major-General 
Joseph Hooker. By Isaac P. Gragg, Brevet-Captain, U. S. Vols. Copy- 
right 1900, by Isaac P. Gragg, Boston, Mass. 8vo, pp. 24, 111. 

The ancestors of "Fighting Joe" Hooker, according to this volume, were 
located in Wenham, Littleton, Westford, Greenwich and Hadley; and to the 
memory of their illustrious descendant, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is 
about to erect an equestrian statue on the grounds of the State House. Gen. 
Hooker was born in Hadley in 1814, in a house that was "located on that grand 
and ancient main avenue of Old Hadley named West Street." The book is 
artistically gotten up, nicely printed on good paper, and is profusely illustrated. 
Copies are obtainable of Isaac P. Gragg, No. 53 State St., Boston, Mass. 

Ancestry and Descendants of Sylvanus Eaton, Jacob Swetland 
and Christopher Reynolds. Compiled by Mrs. Jane Adaline (Eaton) 
Wight, Springfield, Mass., 1900. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 69. 

The title of this work explains its scope, and is put forth as a stimulus to 
someone to compile a more extended genealogy of the Eaton family. 

Civil and Military List of Rhode Island, 1647-1800. A List of 
all Officers elected by the General Assembly, from the Organi- 
zation of the Legislative Government of the Colony to 1800. Com- 
piled from the records by Joseph Jencks Smith, Providence, R. I. Preston & 
Rounds Co., 1900. Small quarto, cloth, pp. viL-659. 

The compilation gives a list of all officers, civil and military, appointed by 
the General Assembly from the organization of the Colony under the first 
Charter in 1647 down to 1800, including all the Judicial Officers, Clerks of 
Courts, Sheriffs of Counties, Justices of the Peace, Conservators of the Peace, 
Colonial Agents, commissioners for various purposes, and hundreds of minor 
officers, even ferrymen. The lists of military officers show the gradual develop- 
ment of the militia system of the Colony, the officers of the Island and of the 
Main during the Indian and Colonial wars, the officers during the Revolutionary 
war, not only those of the regular brigades, but of the troops hastily raised on 
occasions of alarms, and for guard duty. Also the officers of the independent 
chartered companies, as the Providence Grenadiers, North Providence Rangers, 
Scituate Hunters, Kingston Reds, Cranston Blues, Captain General's Cavaliers,

Smithfield Federal Protectors, and many others. It includes over fifty 
thousand names, and cannot fail to prove of great value alike to those interested 
in genealogy and in the study of our colonial institutions. The price is $7.50 
net, and may be had of Preston & Rounds Company, 98 Westminster Street, 
Providence, R. I. A second volume will shortly be issued, giving all the 
officers of the Continental service from 1800 to 1850, whose appointments were 
made by officers in the field or by the Continental Congress, also all officers in 
the regular army or navy, 1789 to 1850, as well as those engaged in the War of 
1812 and in the Mexican War. Of special importance in the forthcoming 
volume will be the list of officers on vessels from Rhode Island engaged in 
privateer service during Colonial, Revolutionary, and the War of 1812, with 
full statistics regarding them. 

The Hamlin Family. A Genealogy of Capt. Giles Hamlin of 
Middleton, Conn., 1654-1900. By Hon. H. Franklin Andrews. Pub. by the 
author, Exira, Iowa, 1900. Imperial Octavo, cloth, pp. 479. 

In the January, 1899, issue of this periodical we reviewed a 130 page 
pamphlet on this same family by the same author. It was published as part 
one of a larger work intended to be issued serially. The present work covers 
a different ground, giving the descendants of Capt. Giles Hamlin, who settled 
in Middleton, Conn., about 1754. At the time the above mentioned pamphlet 
was published, Mr. Andrews announced that he had over 7&00 pages of manu- 
script relating to the descendants of James Hamblen, who settled at Barnstable, 
Mass., and over 1,000 pages of manuscript giving descendants of Giles Hamlin,' 
besides oyer 1,000 pages of records of other Hamlin families. We believe it is 
his intention to continue the first in pamphlet parts, the second, we have before 
us in splendid book form, and we shall hope to see the third later. The volume 
shows careful research and painstaking labor, both absolutely assured by a 
glance at the very full index. Copies may be had of the author at Exira, 
Iowa, who also is publisher of the Andreus Family, $2.50, and the Hamlin 
pamphlet, $2.00. 

A Genealogical History of the Chappell, Dickie, and other 
kindred Families of Virginia, 1635-1900. Compiled by Phil. E. Chappell. 
Revised edition, 1900, Kansas City, Mo. Hudson-Kimberly Print. Co., iqoo 
8vo, cloth, pp. 382, 111. v 

The manuscript of this genealogy was first turned over to the printer in 
1895, and shortly after appeared the first edition. The compiler says he thought 
at that time that the work was forever done, though he was well aware of its 
incompleteness. With the distribution of that edition, however, came volumes 
of additional information, the discovery of lost tribes, an added sense of duty— 
and now a revised edition. Its pages are the result of five years of painstaking 
research added to the original years of labor in producing the first edition, and 
are nearly double the quantity of the original volume. No attempt has been 
made to trace the family in England, for the compiler has "confined himself to 
a new family in a new world, and to tracing down its descendants, rather than 
treat of an old family in an old world, and trace back its ancestors." Its 
contents give origin of the family and name; first settlement in Virginia; the 
families of Bennett, Chappell, George, Andrew, John, and Capt. John, Thomas, 
Thomas the second, Samuel, Christopher and Robert; the Edgefield branch of 
South Carolina, the Georgia branch, the Rough Creek branch, the Chappells of 
Ohio and Indiana, the Richland branch of South Carolina, the Texas branch, 
and the Tennessee branch. In addition the volume gives full information of 
the allied families of Dickie, Wade, Compton, Pate, Yarlington and Adams. 
The volume is an excellent one, well printed and neatly bound; it leaves little 
room for criticism, except that it lacks an index. Copies may be obtained by 
addressing the compiler at Kansas City, Mo. 

Archives of Maryland. Muster Rolls and other Records of 
Service of Maryland Troops in the American Revolution, 1775-1783 
Baltimore, 1900. Small quarto, cloth, pp. 736. 

2C2 Book Notices [Oct., 

This most valuable contribution to the early annals of Maryland was pub- 
lished by authority of the State, under direction of the Maryland Historical 
Society, and forms volume XVIII. of the State Archives. The publication was 
first undertaken in 1897, from papers found in the possession of John Hopkins 
University, and was continued by the aid of other manuscript sources which 
appeared from time to time. The accuracy and honesty of the work are attested 
by the assistance rendered by persons and societies of the State who are specially 
interested in such productions. The volume contains early and independent 
companies; Flying Camp papers; Musters of Maryland Troops, 1st, 2d, 3d, 4th, 
5th, 6th, 7th, Rawhiegs' Regts., and the German Regt.; Miscellaneous Mary- 
land Line papers; Muster and Pay Rolls, 1780-3, 1786; Artillery Rolls; Lee's 
Dragoons, Pulaski's and Armand's Legions; Miscellaneous Naval Rolls; 
Escaped and Exchanged Prisoners; Return of Invalids; appendix and an 
index of 74 pages, 4 columns to the page.

A Memorial of the Town of Hampstead, New Hampshire. Illus- 
trated. Compiled by Harriette Eliza Noyes, Boston, Mass. Geo. B. Reed, 

1899. 8vo, cloth, pp. xi-468. 

Miss Noyes was Historian of the One Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary 
of the Town's Incorporation, July 4th, 1899, and for her efforts at that time won 
much praise and admiration. In this volume she has presented a local history 
well supported by existing authorities, and the story is told without vainglorious 
attempts at rhetoric, simply a narration of facts. The work is commendable 
for its authenticity, and its contents are as follows: Various petitions relative to 
the Town's incorporation, charter and annals concerning the "old meeting 
house;" historical sketch of the town by Rev. John Kelly, 44 years minister in 
the town; full proceedings of the centennial celebration, July 4, 1849, w ' tn 
addresses; full proceedings of the 150th anniversary of the town's incorporation, 
July 4, 1899; chapter descriptive of Hampstead, England; educational work in 
Hampstead, including list of natives of the town graduating from college and 
elsewhere; religious work in town, from the pioneers to 1900, various church 
societies, other denominations; the military, giving names and interesting facts 
of Hampstead, men who have served in the Colonial, Revolutionary, and later 
wars, to the Spanish-American, the diary of Captain John Calef, kept at 
Ticonderoga in 1777, etc.; cemetery inscriptions from ten cemeteries in town; 
historical and genealogical notes, parental tributes, and many interesting facts 
pertaining to the families of the town; list of town officers for 150 years, to 

1900, births, marriages and publishments as recorded on the first book of records, 
about 1800; descriptive map of the town and general index. Copies, costing 
S3.00, may be had of the author, Westville, N. H.

Mr. Allen has been engaged for several years in the compilation of this 
work, and though he does not claim that its pages contain a complete genealogy 

I 9 OI -l Book Notices. 2 KT. 

of the descendants of Roger and John Ailing, yet he has gathered a mass of 
material containing thousands of names. The work, as is usual in genealogies, 
gives the personal history of the early generations, and carries their descendants 
to the present time by a system of notation that is clear, concise, and readily 
followed. There are about twenty half tone portraits, and the mechanical 
construction of the work is well done, the whole closing with copious indexes. 
The cost of the book is $3.00 per copy, and may be had of the compiler at 
North Woodbury, Conn., or of the publishers. 

Descendants of Elisha Ware, of Wrentham, Mass., to Tan est 
1896. 8vo, cloth, ob. 

The compilation of this little work began about 1883, and is arranged here 
in chart form with illustrations and descriptive matter appended. The first 
four generations have been taken by permission from The Descendants of 
Robert Ware, by Miss Emma F. Ware. Elisha was of the fourth generation, 
and the second chart gives his descendants to the ninth generation. The book 
has never been sold but is supplied gratis by Mr. F. W. Mann of Milford, 
Mass., the compiler, who does so to those interested. He assures us that it was 
compiled "with more than usual care and accuracy," and says that the illus- 
trations are from photographs taken by himself. The last page but one con- 
tains numerous fac-similies of signatures.

( \Zru U ' 25, Feb- l ' 8 and I5, l9 ° ' and is P rinted - not published, for Mr. Joseph 
\\ llhamson of Belfast. It is an interesting pamphlet and closes with quite

The Gorham Family in Rhode Island. Notes on the Providence Line 
by Georgiana Guild. Bristol Branch by Henry S. Gorham, Boston. David 
Clapp & Son, 1900. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 11.

Report on Canadian Archives. By Douglas Brymner, 1900. Printed 
by order of Parliament, Ottawa, 1901. 8vo, paper, pp. 540. 

Mr. Brymner has devoted many years to this work, and has done much to 
preserve the annals of our hyperborean neighbor. The present volume con- 
tains statistics on education, emigration, State papers of Upper and Lower 
Canada, 1832-1835. The whole is an appendix to the report of the Minister of 

The Bennett, Bently and Beers Families. By S. B. Bennett of 
Pittston, Pa. (1899). 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 50. 

These three families converge in the compiler, and so his original intention 
to give only the Bennetts grew threefold. Mr. Bennett gives this little pamphlet 
to the genealogical world as the result of labor conducted during the intervals 
of a busy life, and regrets that time and opportunity have not afforded him 
more. The immigrant ancestor was from Wiltshire, where the seat of the 
Bennetts is at Pitthouse; just before the Revolutionary War, the family re- 
moved to the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania, where their history became

interwoven with the stirring events of that locality. Mr. Bennett tells his 
story with a style that is most entertaining and likewise profitable. 

The Macdonough-Hackstaff Ancestry. By Rodney Macdonough, 
Boston, 1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. viii.~526. 

This handsome, illustrated work has just been issued from the press of 
Samuel Usher, Boston. The volume consists of a series of fifty-five articles on 
the writer's ancestors from the time of their arrival in this country to the 
present day. An article has been written on each male ancestor in which, in 
addition to what is known of his wife, is contained all the information obtain- 
able as to his birth, marriage and death; where he lived; purchase and sale of 
property; civil offices held; naval and military service; children; and such 
events and particulars in his life as would be interesting to his descendants. 
Although the volume is printed for private distribution, it contains much that 
will be of interest to genealogists in the shape of wills, inventories, extracts 
from and illustrations of original records, etc. The articles include the families 
of Barker, Bigg, Burrowes, Coit, Cole, Denning, Garr, Griggs, Hackstaff, 
Hallock, Hawxhurst, Hopkins, Laroux, Macdonough, Morrell, Mould, Pratt, 
Priest, Reddocke, Shaler, Sinclair, Spencer, Stocking, Stow, Swazy, Townsend, 
Vance, Williams. But three or four of the twenty wills and eighteen inventories 
here given have ever been printed before. The illustrations include numerous 
ancient documents of much interest and value. There is a full set of ancestral 
charts and a complete index of persons and places. Probably the most 
valuable portion of the work, historically, is that devoted to Commodore 
Thomas Macdonough, U. S. N., the writer's grandfather. This article con- 
tains the greater part of an autobiography left by the Commodore which has 
never been made public. The article is preceded by a full page half-tone 
reproduction of the Stuart portrait of Commodore Macdonough, and also 
contains half-tone, full page illustrations of the battle on Lake Champlain, 
September 11, 1814, the autograph dispatch from the Commodore to the Secre- 
tary of the Navy announcing the result of the engagement, and the obverse 
and reverse of the gold medal granted by Congress. A limited edition of 300 
copies, printed from type on high grade paper, wide margin and uncut; bound 
in linen; $5.00 a copy. After January 1, 1902, $7.50 a copy. Order from 
Rodney Macdonough, 205 Washington Street, Boston, Mass. 

Historic Duxbury in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. By 
Laurence Bradford, Boston. The Fish Printing Company, iooo. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. 128, 111. 

The object of this book is to give a brief sketch of the town of Duxbury, 
mostly for the tourist and summer visitor. Mr. Bradford has derived his infor- 
mation mostly from the long residence of his family in the town, and from his 
acquaintance with the last generation of the town's inhabitants. The volume 
contains chapters on the early settlement and settlers, Capt. Myles Standish, 
Elder William Brewster, John Alden, the Standish monument, old burial 
places, ship building, roads, maps, old houses, antiquaries, Kingston and Green 
Harbor, the French cable, 250th anniversary, and the clam industry. It is an 
historic old town, whose early days partook of the romance of the "Plimouth 
Plantation," and to its memory poets, orators and historians have contributed 
some of their best efforts. Copies of the book may be had of the author at 
Millbrook, Mass. 

Early Records of Baptisms, Marriages, Deaths, and Member- 
ship of the Congregational Church, East Hampton (Chatam), Conn. 
Middletown, Conn. Pelton & King, 1900. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 150. 

The above title explains the scope of this work. The records are copied 
from a diary kept by the Rev. Mr. John Norton, pastor of the church from 1748 
to 1778, which copy was made by Mr. Martin L. Roberts from the original now 
in possession of a Dr. Cornwell of Brooklyn, N. Y. It is composed of small 
sheets of writing paper sewed together, and covers the period from April 18, 
1764, to March 24, 1772. The remaining records of his pastorate are supposed 
to have been destroyed.

The Descendants of William Towne, who came to America on 
or about 1630, and settled in Salem, Mass. Compiled by Edwin Eugene 
Towne, Newtonville, Mass. Published by the author, 1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. 
372, 111. 

Another excellently compiled genealogy. They come upon us thick and 
fast, and at the present rate there will be left in a short time few families that 
have not been "written up." The present volume is conducted on the Record 
and Register plan, and the typography and press work are fine. The historical 
and genealogical records have been obtained from the usual sources of town, 
church and court records, and also from those collected by the late William B. 
Towne, who published in the New England Register, some years ago, an 
article on the origin of the name in England. The present work reprints that 
article, and gives reprints of wills, the genealogy of the family for ten gener- 
ations, records of southern families, miscellaneous branches, historical notes, 
and seven indexes most carefully prepared. The volume is embellished with 
thirty-six portraits, and is a model of genealogical compilation. 

New York State Library Bulletins, No. 53, Dec, 1900; No. 56, 
Feb., igor. Compiled by Charles A. Flagg. L. 8vo, paper, pp. 175-283, 

The first of these is a bibliography of Connecticut Local History compiled 
from materials in the New York State Library, and gives the dates of incorpor- 
ation of each town. The arrangement is by counties, first, then alphabetically 
by towns. Works relating to the State at large are grouped at the beginning. 
The second is a bibliography of New York Colonial History from its discovery 
to 1776, confined to the territory within the present limits of the State. In 
addition to the citation of works indicated by the title, there are indexes and 
calendars of manuscripts, many church histories, and reprints of the city 
charters and legislative journals. Both works are invaluable contributions to 
the reference shelf. 

^V Atwater History and Genealogy. Compiled by Francis Atwater, 
Meriden, Conn. The Journal Publishing Co., igoi. 8vo, cloth, pp. 4g2, 111. 

In the "wee sma'" hours the compiler of this genealogy has poured over 
the notes accumulated, and now in the light of day comes forth a volume most 
creditable in its result, another bright and shining example of a labor of love. 
After a sketch of the family in England, it proceeds to an account of the family 
in America, from the two sons of John Atwater of Boyton, England, namely 
Joshua and David, who came to this country and settled in New Haven about 
1638. The second part of the work gives the descendants of David in genea- 
logical notation. The work concludes with a monumental index covering 
forty-three pages, three columns to the page. The compiler hopes that persons 
interested in the family will criticise and correct his work, and announces that 
pages will be printed from time to time to keep it up to date.

The object of this Society is the discovery, procuring, preservation and 
perpetuation of whatever may relate to American Genealogy, Biography and 
Local History; and it aims to cover the field of genealogical and biographical 
research more thoroughly than has been done by the public libraries or societies 
devoted to one particular locality or period. 

The Society was founded and incorporated in 1869. For nearly twenty 
years it occupied modest quarters in Mott Memorial Hall, No. 64 Madison 
Avenue. In October, 1888, rooms were secured in the Berkeley Lyceum, No. 
2j West 44th Street, where the Society remained until May, 1896, when the 
present building was purchased through the generous bequest of Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Underhill Coles and the substantial assistance of some of the members. 

The Society building, No. 226 West 58th Street, is a handsome five-story 
structure, with an attractive entrance, and, having lately undergone extensive 
alterations and repairs, is admirably suited to the uses of the Society. It 
contains a lecture hall handsomely decorated and well lighted, heated and 
ventilated, with a seating capacity of one hundred and seventy-five persons; 
a tire-proof library specially constructed with a view to safety, light, quiet and 
convenience, and an attractive room for general Society purposes open to 
members and their friends. 

The Society has, by careful and capable management, steadily improved., 
and has at present assets amounting to nearly $50,000.00, and a good income 
from dues and rentals ; it is under the management of a Board of Trustees 
elected by the members for alternating periods of three years. 

The membership of the Society, comprising a large number of our best 
known and prominent citizens, is made up of Annual, Life and Honorary Mem- 
bers. Annual Members pay an entrance fee of $10.00, and the sum of $5.00 per 
year dues. Life Members pay $50.00 in lieu of all dues and fees. 

Persons desirous of becoming members of the Society may address the 
Executive Committee. Members have the right of introducing visitors to the 
rooms and to the privileges of the Society. 

The Library has upon its shelves over five thousand volumes of Geneal- 
ogy, Biography and Local History, and nearly thrice that number of pamphlets 
and unbound books on these subjects, as well as many manuscripts of value. 
It is open to members and visitors from 10 A. M. to 6 p. M. on week days and 
holidays, and from 8 to 10 P. M. on Mondays, except during the months of 
August and September. In this room— the very heart of the Society— will be 
found that atmosphere of scholastic quiet and ready service so grateful to the 

Regular Meetings of the Society, at which addresses of historical interest 
are delivered, are held on the second Friday evening of each month, except 
June, July, August and September. 

The Society has progressed steadily in its particular sphere, and has been 
the means of awakening interest in many persons heretofore ignorant of or 
indifferent to their ancestral history; during the past decade this interest has 
greatly increased, and has resulted in bringing to light and preservation many 
records of value. Beginners in the Genealogical field will find that the Society 
with its collections, its "Record," and the accumulated experience of its mem- 
bers, offers advantages indispensable to their work. 

"Those who do not treasure up the memory of their ancestors do not deserve 
to be remembered by posterity" -Edmund Burke.

The placing on the walls of our Civic, Religious and Serai-Public 
Buildings, the records of the purpose of the buildings, of Bequests if 
any, and the Donors to whom the Institutions are indebted, is becoming 
more and more recognized. 

In the illustration of the "FLOWER" 
Tablet, in Trinity Church, Watertown, N. Y., 
erected by the late Gov. Flower and his 
brother, Anson R. Flower, an extract from 
the deed of gift is included in the inscription, 
thus bringing directly before the observer, 
the information in regard to the building 
in which the tablet is erected. 

We have designed and executed more

This Chapel has been designed 
to show a comprehensive exhibit 
of Ecclesiastical and Memorial 
Art Work. It is the first, in the 
history of Expositions, of any 
completed building, interior and 
exterior, with windows and all 
details in place. It is the most 
important exhibit of its kind at 
the Pan-American.

The object of this Society is the discovery, procuring, preservation and 
perpetuation of whatever may relate to American Genealogy, Biography and 
Local History; and it aims to cover the field of genealogical and biographical 
research more thoroughly than has been done by the public libraries or societies 
devoted to one particular locality or period. 

The Society was founded and incorporated in 1869. For nearly twenty 
years it occupied modest quarters in Mott Memorial Hall, No. 64 Madison 
Avenue. In October, 1888, rooms were secured in the Berkeley Lyceum, No. 
23 West 44th Street, where the Society remained until May, 1896, when the 
present building was purchased through the generous bequest of Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Underhill Coles and the substantial assistance of some of the members. 

The Society building, No. 226 West 58th Street, is a handsome five-story 
structure, with an attractive entrance, and, having lately undergone extensive 
alterations and repairs, is admirably suited to the uses of the Society. It 
contains a lecture hall handsomely decorated and well lighted, heated and 
ventilated, with a seating capacity of one hundred and seventy-five persons; 
a fire-proof library specially constructed with a view to safety, light, quiet and 
convenience, and an attractive room for general Society purposes open to 
members and their friends. . 

The Society has, by careful and capable management, steadily improved, 
and has at present assets amounting to nearly $50,000.00, and a good income

elected by the members for alternating periods of three years.

MONUMENTS should have a religious 
character. This means that they should be 
designed by Specialists who believe in this 
idea. We are Specialists of over forty 
years standing. Our experience is at your 
service. Among our recently executed work 
is the large important Historical Monument 
in the Old Scots Burying Ground, at Free- 
hold, N. J., to mark the site of the first Presbyterian Church in the United 
States. Correspondence solicited for any work to be erected this Summer. 
Decision for work to be erected this Spring should be made at once, 
so the foundation can be set before the new grass and flowers.
