By Josiah C. Pumpelly, A. M., LL. B. 

Although William Earle Dodge is no longer present in the 
body, to my mental vision he still remains an immortal shape, a 
bright and inspiring personality. 

As I write this heartfelt tribute to his character and kindly 
influences, I see him distinctly as he appeared speaking in his 
urbane and convincing way before the Union League Club, or 
before the Young Men's Christian Association, making an earnest 
plea for some good and important measure, or, as on a certain 
occasion when the Hampton Institute scholars sang in the Brick 
Church, eloquently pleading for the education of the Negro and 
the Indian. And I remember on that occasion how impressive 
and affectionate was the tribute he paid to the memory of Gen- 
eral Armstrong, the late well-beloved principal of the Institute. 

Mr. Dodge possessed a decided personality, and was ever ag- 
gressive when some question of right was at stake, and all who 
have met and conversed with him on any question of national 
or municipal affairs, or better yet, on some one of his favorite 
themes of philanthropic effort, can bear witness to his Christian 
optimism and his power to impress even the most indifferent. 

Of all the good men I have ever known, Mr. Dodge was one 
of the most heartily and humanely helpful, and along very many 
lines of effort. God had blessed him in nature and temper, and 
he faithfully made the most of his gifts for the advantage of his 
fellow men. 

As President Hadley, of Yale, has so well said : "The new 
conception of liberty is that it represents a responsibility or trust 
to be exercised for the benefit of mankind." In the character of 
William E. Dodge, I know that this was the underlying principle 
of action throughout all of his exemplary life. This sense of 
Christian stewardship as a practical working force in every voca- 
tion, or avocation, was marked in him, as it was in his father, 
and, also, the dominant note of his character was spiritual and 
patriotic, and forN.hese reasons it is fitting that the community 
should perpetuate his memory and hold up in endearing honor 
the record of his faithful citizenship. 

At a meeting of the Union League Club, in 1878, in memory 

2 William Earle Dodge. [Jan., 

of Theodore Roosevelt, the father of the present President of the 
United States, Mr. Dodge, in a letter read at the meeting, says of 
Mr. Roosevelt : " Thoroughly and strangely unselfish, with 
untiring energy and bright cheerfulness he literally ' went about 
doing good.' Sound, careful, with marvelous good judgment, 
he added to these qualities a magnetic power in influencing 
others I have never seen equalled. When he saw a practical 
means of help to any needy ones he acted immediately. And 
then, his uniform, sunny brightness melted every obstacle and 
won all heart-.' 

Surely this beautiful tribute which Mr. Dodge paid to his 
friend and co-worker will in every particular apply with equal 
truth to himself. He always took a leading part in all those 
measures of patriotism with which our Union League Club was 
identified. He was ever a signal example of the public spirited 
citizen, and to those of our mutual club friends who were rich, 
yet indifferent as to civic matters, his voice was a clarion note, 
calling them to a more unselfish and active participation in pub- 
lic affairs and in every effort for the betterment of mankind. I 
was not one of his intimate friends, but he was to me, as well as 
to many others, ever an inspiriting influence and example. Suc- 
cessful merchant as he was, he never believed that the land of 
the people should be degraded into merely a dollar making 
factory, and the city's Botanical Gardens, the Museum of Art, 
and many other philanthropic and civic interests, were his de- 
light and study, because he saw what a power they could all be 
in the uplifting and educating of the masses of our people. 

As often as I pass by the beautiful Earl Hall, which Mr. 
Dodge presented to the students of Columbia University, I am 
reminded that in the regard of our well-loved friend educational 
institutions and the interest of the student held a foremost place, 
and we honor him all the more that this was so. 

The words of the old classics Fidea Urbanitas et Huuiam- 
fas very well describe the characteristics of Mr. Dodge's culti- 
vated mind. He saw life steadily, and saw it as a whole, and 
this made him tolerant in his judgment and beautiful in his 

As a veteran member of the Union League Club and as a sus- 
taining member of the Young Men's Christian Association, I had 
the opportunities of witnessing on many memorable occasions 
how Mr. Dodge by stirring and timely appeals so influenced the 
action of these associations that wise counsels prevailed and 
much good was accomplished. That this influence was well un- 
derstood and appreciated is shown in the following resolution 
passed by unanimous vote of the Union League Club: "Wil- 
liam Earle Dodge, Senior Vice-President of this Club, joined the 
club in 1863, and was at the time of his death one of its few sur- 
viving founders. When the Union was in peril he was a promin- 
ent and patriotic supporter of the Union cause; an intimate 
friend of Lincoln, Grant and Sherman, and an associate of our 
late members, Dr. H. W. Bellows and Theodore Roosevelt, Sr., 
in the Sanitary Commission in which he labored with unceasing 

iqo4-] William Earle Dodge. 3 

energy. He was one of the historic number of twenty-five 
Union League Club members led by Jackson S. Shultz, who 
inarched at the head of Col. Bartram's colored regiment down 
Broadway from the old club house in Union Square, when that 
regiment, raised by the club, went to the front. Mr. Dodge stood 
in tiv front rank of men who valued citizenship above partisan 
considerations. His character was well rounded and complete. 
He was in all his intercourse the cultivated Christian man ; one 
to be consulted whose advice was proverbially wise. lie has, 
doubtless, heard the plaudit ' well done ' from the supreme Judge 
of all human action." 

He was ever my exemplar of the best type of the Christian 
man of affairs, the helpful philanthropist, and the truest friend 
of young men I have ever known. Then, too, his pleasant and 
cordial way of greeting others, Ids persistent optimism and love

In my conversation with Mr. Dodge, it seemed plain to me 
that he held strongly to the belief that no social or industrial 
changes could ever displace individual accountability, and no 
substitute could be found or devised for character in either the 
home or the counting-house ; that to build up the new order was 
the only fruitful and lasting labor, and that, as the prophets 
dreamed of a perfected Israel, so we should plan for a perfected 
society — a properly adjusted humanity. He believed that : 

" We are not here to play, to dream, to drift ; 

We have hard work to do, loads to lift ; 

We are not to shun the struggle, but face it ; 'tis God's gift." 
This was his life's creed ; social distrust and despair had in 
his mind no place in the working out of God's plans. He would 
have religion without superstition, polities without war, art and 
science without materialism, and wealth without misery and 
wrong. With him 'twas hearth and heart, home and heaven, all 
the way through, and with it all he had such a lovely spirit of old 
time courtesy that none could ever say him nay. Better than 
any words of mine, the following letters express in what estima- 
tion our friend was held by those who knew him best :

I am glad that you are going to write an article on Mr. Dodge. You will 
find a few reminiscences of him in my book Little Rivers, where he is de- 
scribed in the chapter entitled ' Salmon-fishing on the Ristigoucbe,' under the 
name of Favonius . My intercourse with Mr. Dodge as a parishioner was 
most delightful in every was. I never new a man more ready to help in any 
good cause or more happy in working for the extension of Christ's Kingdom. 
The Lord, who loveth a cheerful giver, must certainly have had a peculiar love 
for Mr. Dodge. He gave as if it were a pleasure to him. His sympathy with 
every honest and practical effort to do good was quick and deep. His force 
of character was enhanced and beautified by the gentleness of his manners. 
He adorned the doctrine which he professed. 

Faithfully Yours,

My Dear Mr. Pumpelly : 

I knew Mr. William E.Dodge very well for over forty years, and had a very 
high respect and warm regard for him. He had a very noble and beautiful 
character and lead a life of the greatest usefulness. He not only always fol- 
lowed high ideals, but he never failed in the effort and labor necessary to give 
practical effect to them. He was not merely benevolent but he was charitable 
in the broadest sense in his judgment of his fellowmen and his always kindly 
and considerate treatment of them, and he had strong sense and sound judg- 
ment. His death was a great loss to the whole community, but his example 
remains a great gain to everyone who was fortunate enough to know him. 
I am glad you are going to write an appropriate article about him. 

Faithfully yours, 


Y. M. C. A. International Committee Rooms, 
New York, December 1, 1903. 
My Dear Mr. Pumpelly : 

William E. Dodge belonged to the highest type of manhood. Inheriting 
large wealth, tempted to a selfish life of ease, he was as industrious in his 
business as wealthy men who accumulate their entire fortune by their own 
industry. As a christian philanthropist he stood in the very front rank in a 
country as productive of this class of men as any other in the world. With 
his gifts also went with equal generosity and greater unselfishness his personal 
activity as officer and worker. His discriminating beneficence embraced an 
unusual number of well chosen objects, but his interest in young men was 
specially pronounced. To them his sympathy went out with peculiar tender- 

It was for this reason that the work of the Young Men's Christian Associa- 
tion called forth his life-long enthusiasm. The first four years of his adminis- 
tration as president of the New York Association were signalized by the 
planning and erection in 1869, on the corner of Twenty-third Street and Fourth 
Avenue, of the first genuine association building in the world — the seed corn 
of similar structures now erected on every continent. Here for the first time 
the fourfold work for young men — physical, social, intellectual and spiritual — 
was organized so excellently as to make it the pattern upon which the lines of 
the association work have gone out through all the earth and its efficiency to 
the end of the world. 

His generous and statesmanlike sympathy, however, were not confined to 
the New York Association. He included the whole brotherhood in his benefi- 
cence. Lately two beautiful and costly buildings were given by him to the 
students of Princeton and Columbia universities. At the close of the first year 
of the new century he confessed to having contributed that year to twenty- 
three departments of association work. He loved the work more than the 
organization, and young men more than the work for them ; and he was am- 
bitious, as a father might be for his son, that the work should stand for and 
illustrate a stronger and purer type of manhood. By his own initiative and 
through his personal iufluence he was the first citizen to give to the National 
Government in its army department an association building — erectinu it on 
Governor's Island in New York Harbor. Subsequent legislation by Congress 
has opened to his fellow-citizens similar opportunities of generous provision 
for United States soldiers at all our large military posts at home and in the 

He was wont to say of the Young Men's Christian Association that it was 
an organization which discovered " the real value of young men and what 
could be done to mould their lives to bring them to higher ideals, loftier pur- 
poses, and greater fruitfulness and usefulness." He held it to this purpose. 
His interest in it was measured and regulated by its progress toward this 
standard. From youth to old age he was himself a model member of the 
brotherhood — always cheerful and enthusiastic, strong in counsel, buoyant

and inspiring in his leadership. He never ceased to be a young man. This 
was the secret of his undying sympathy with young nun. Their enthusiasms 
were his own. Listen to the glowing words with which only two years ago he 
opened, as president, the American Jubilee Convention: "1 trust that the 
watchword of this convention the inspiration behind it all will tie ' Forward 

for the future! ' A splendid foundation has been built with Christ as the cor- 
ner-stone. This new century is a time of great opportunity and splendid re- 
sponsibility. God grant in this cenvention there may be men of large 
hearts and noble souls who will go back and say : 'By God's grace I am 

^ g to do something toward building up this great work. I inc. in to help 

make this century the one which shall most honor Christ and which shall 
nio^t good accomplished for men.'" These wire the words of one who had 
done his full share toward making lus own century pre-eminent in Christward 
tendency and progress. 

Very Sincerely Yours, 


In answer to my letter Mr. Morris K. Jessnp sent me a copy 
of his letter to the N. Y. Evening Post, from which I quote the 

" The late William E. Dodge was a man to be loved and honored by all 
classes. He was by nature gentle and kind, yet with a positive conviction of 
what was right, honorable and true. He was born ami brought up under in- 
fluences moral and religious, and imbibed early the saintly qualities of mind 
ami heart of a noble father ami mother. 

It was the privilege of the writer to have known Mr. Dodge as a boy, and 

to have been his companion at school in iys, This early acquaintance 

ripened into an attachment and friendship which lasted for over sixty years 
without a break, and during this long period he had abundant opportunity, in 
the various walks of an active life ami an intimate social acquaintance, to test 
the qualities of mind and heart of this noble man. 

He was the real, successful to the Young Men's Christian Asso- 

ciation in this country, which had root in lus strong personality, and which has 

now become one of the most influential factors foi g I, among young men, 

that exists in the world. His long leadership of the United States branch ol 
the Evangelical Alliance is proof of his Christian statesmanship and broad 
catholicity. He was a promoter of peace in all disputes and quarrels among 
nations and individuals, and strongly urged arbitration as the best meat 
settlement. He was a lo\ er ol tin beautiful in nature and art, as his associa- 
tiation with the great museun ty will testify, as well as the true friend 

of the Botanical and Zoological Gan 

He was a lover aid promote! oi science, as his gifts for research and in- 
vestigation prove and as nis si ij Mr. Carnegie as one ol his trustees oi 
the great Carnegie Institute of Washington hears testimony. Mr. Dodge's 
private life was blameless. He was a loving husband, father and friend, ami a 
good citizen. His home was the resting place from strife, discord and selfish- 
ness; it was a type of Heaven's abode, and all dwelling beneath its roof, as 
wed as visitors and friends who had knowledge of it, felt the holier and better 
because of its influence. When such a man is called out of the world it leaf es 
it bereaved and saddened. We cannot afford to lose such in the times m 
which we live, ami our prayer is that Cod will prepare others to imitate Mi. 
Dodge's example, that his place may be filled by those who will bear testi- 
mony, as he has done, through a long life of unselfishness, devotion to duty, 
high standard of living, and faithful service to the city, society and religion. 

' We live m deeds, not years ; in thoughts, not breaths ; 
In feelings, not in figures on a dial. 
We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives 
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.' " 

Ami judged by this standard we may well say our friend 
lived his life to the fullest and lived it nobly and we can be grate-

ful that here in the midst of an ever restless money and pleas- 
ure loving people his character and life stand out clear and 
clears free from every spot or blemish ; and as no fever of unrest 
can disturb the soul which breathes the air or learns the ways of 
Christ, so it was, we are assured, when his summons came, our 
friend, with untroubled heart and complete calmness of soul, fell 
asleep and passed to where beyond these voices there is rest and 
peace forevermore. 


By Rev. William White Hance. 

John Hance, one of the original settlers, under the Monmouth 
Patent, of Shrewsbury, N. J., came from Dover, N. H., where, 
by vote of the settlers, he was made an inhabitant 6th of 4th 
month (June) 1656. On a Dover, N. H., tax-rate for July 21, 1657, 
containing 93 names tiot arranged alphabetically, the name of 
John Hance immediately precedes that of Thomas Hanson, who 
was the father of the Tobias Hanson subscribing, together with 
John Hance, for the purchase of lands in Monmouth Co., N. J.. 
from the Indians, and the grandfather of that Tobias Hanson of 
Dover, N. H. who executed a power of Attorney, Feb. 4, 1698-9 
making "his uncle John Hance, of Shrewsbury, N. J. his general 
agent in the Province of East Jersey." In 1665 John Haunce 
" carpenter" buys land of George Walton in Dover, N. H. Dec. 
28, 1669 John Hance is a Deputy and Overseer of Court at Portland 
Point, Monmouth Co., N. J. and covenants with the town, Sept., 
1670, to build a pair of stocks. May 28, 1672, we find John Hause 
named as an "Associate" with the Patentees of Middletown and 
Shrewsbury. And in 1673, during the very brief rule of the Dutch, 
John Hanoe* is one of those appointed by them as a "schepen" 
or magistrate. The will of John Hance, "of Shrewsbury, yeo- 
man, and being ancient and crazy," signed 24th of 1st month 
called March, 1707, was proved Jan. 27, 17 10, and in it he names 
Elizabeth his wife ashisexecutrix. She was probably the daughter 
of the above mentioned Thomas Hanson of Dover, N. H., who, 
in his undated will recorded June 27, 1666, speaks of his wife 
Mary and two daughters, though he does not name them, under 
the age of 18 years at the time of the signing. Elizabeth Hance 
died 8th month 28, 1732, and the names of the children of John 
and Elizabeth Hance, together with the dates of their birth, were 
obtained from an old Bible still in existence and now owned by 
one of their direct decendants. 
John Hance had issue by Elizabeth (Hanson?):

In 1898, Miss Cornelia Van Kleeck of Poughkeepsie, gave to 
the Daughters of the American Revolution of that place a Dutch 
Bible, printed in 17 18, which was placed in the building known as 
the "Clinton Museum," owned by the State of New York, and 
occupied by the Daughters of the American Revolution. 

On July nth, 1898, 1 copied the family record in this Bible, 
and now send to the Record as a supplement to the material 
published in July and April last year, as contributed by Mr. 
Alfred Leroy Becker. I do not recall whether I made a " line 
upon line" copy, but the names and dates may be relied upon. 

It will be seen that Mr. Becker was correct in his supposition 
that Francis Filkin was born in 1703, not '04.

Josyntha Corsa, and they had a daughter Cynthia. 

Baltus Van Kleeck was a son of Peter Van Kleeck, (d. 1732/3) 
and his wife Cathrina Lewis, who married, second, Sep. 21, 1733, 
Francis Filkin. 

This Bible therefore came into the possession of the Van 
Kleeck family, by the marriage of Francis Filkin to the widow of 
Peter Van Kleeck. 

Frans Hegeman and Antjen Ruwaart-Rugaard, his wife, 
appear upon the records of the Dutch church, Poughkeepsie, in

The compiler of the Onondaga records contributions closes the series with 
this number. From 1799 onward, the Syracuse records contain occasional 
papers executed by or referring to ex-soldiers of the Revolution, but the work 
of searching them out in the enveloping mass of documents has not been 
carried beyond the year named. Those memoranda of later date here follow- 
ing are but addenda to earlier documents. It is well to repeat, in closing, the 
Statement made when the present series began, that it covers only the realty 
documents relating to the present county of Onondaga. Inasmuch as the orig- 
inal county of Onondaga covered an area embraced in at least six of the pres- 
ent counties of central New York, it is evident that the situs oi memoranda now 
closed has merely made an entry upon an interesting field of research. Fully 
four-fifths of the material embodied in the early Onondaga records is as yet 
untouched by genealogical inquiry. Its character is precisely the same as the 
matter already printed. It is prolific in clues for the tracing of Revolutionary 
ancestry, though seldom giving details at length. Practically every soldier who 
fought in the New York line during the great struggle has left somewhere in 
the Onondaga records one or more memorials of himself in connection with 
the land granted lo him. The existence of these rtcords should be kept in 
mind in the present general search for new sources of genealogical facts.

By George C. Beekman. 

The Van Brunts in Monmouth County are a branch of the 
well known family, of this name, who have been prominent in 
the history of New Utrecht, in Kings Co., Long Island, from its 
first settlement down to the present day. 

Hon. Tunis G. Bergen a resident of Bay Ridge, adjacent to 
New Utrecht, was well acquainted with this family, and the 
Bergens had also intermarried with them. In the Van Brunt 
Genealogy Mr. Bergen correctly names Rutger Joesten Van Brunt, 
who came from Holland to America in 1653, as the common an- 
cestor of the Van Brunts in America. He was one of the first 
settlers of New Utrecht and a farmer by occupation. In 1661 he 
was a member of the Court of Schepens, and in 1678-79-80 
was one of the principal magistrates under the English 

In early records of the inhabitants of New Utrecht his name 
is sometimes spelled " Ruth Joosten." See Vol. I. of O'Callag- 
/tan's Documentary History of New York. 

He married for his first wife Tryntje (Catharine) Claes, the 
widow of Stoffel Harmensen Van Borculo (now Barkalow) and 
had by her three sons Nicholas, Joost or George, and Cornelius. 
He died intestate prior to 1713 leaving considerable real estate, 
which was divided between his two sons and a grandson, for his 
son Nicholas died in 1684 leaving one son only. 

Rutges's son Cornelius was a farmer, and lived and died at New 

34 -4 Branch of the Van Brunt Family in Monmouth Co., N.J. [Jan., 

Utrecht. Besides the land inherited from his father he acquired 
considerable real estate at Gravesend and at New Utrecht. He 
was an Elder in the Dutch Church of New Utrecht from 17 15 to 
to 1 73 1, a member of the Colonial Legislature of New York 
from 1698 to 1 731, and a justice of the Peace in Kings County 
from 17 12 to 1 7 18. He was highly respected for his integrity and 
good judgment. 

He married December 18, 1685, Tryntje (Catharine) a daugh- 
ter of Adrain Williamsen Bennett, of Gowanus, (now part of 
Brooklyn City) and died about 1748. 

His will is dated July 25, 1748, proved May 13, 1754 and re- 
corded in Surrogate's Office of New York City in Book 19, of wills 
page 34. He appoints his sons Rutgert and Nicholas, Executors. 
His son Nicholas is the one who settled in Monmouth Co., New 
Jersey and was the progenitor of all the Van Brunt's now resid- 
ing here. Mr. Bergen is however mistaken in the name of his 
wife and the date of removal from Long Island to Monmouth 

In the Van Brunt Genealogy he supposes that Nicholas married 
Geesye daughter of Claes Thomasse Van Dyke by his second 
wife Francyntje Hendricks, and settled in Monmouth County in 
1750. He is wrong in both of these statements. The old records 
of Marlboro Dutch Church, show that Nicholas Van Brunt and 
Geesie Hendricks his wife became communicants therein 1731, 
and subsequently had three children, all daughters, baptized viz: 
Engeltje baptized April 27th, 1732; Augenetje baptized March 
9th, 1734, who married Albert, son of Garret Schenck and Neeltje 
Voorhees his wife of Pleasant Valley, Mem mouth Co.. New Jersey; 
Geesye baptized October 23rd, 1737. 

The other children whom Mr. Bergen names must have been 
born prior to his removal to Monmouth County, and the record 
of their baptism may probably be found in records of the New 
Utrecht Dutch Church. These children were three sons Hend- 
rick, Cornelius, and Nicholas, and three daughters Catharine, 
Jannetje and Anne, making in all nine children. It was custom- 
ary in early days in the Dutch Church to enter the wife's maiden 
name, in church book when she became a communicant. 

Nicholas Van Brunt married Geesye Hendrickson, a sister of 
Daniel Hendrickson, who was the first settler of this name at 
what is now Holland in Holmdel Township, Monmouth Co., New 
Jersey. Nicholas Van Brunt's father died in 1748 and he came 
into his share of this estate. In 1752 he sold all his share in this 
real estate at New Utrecht to his brother Rutgert Van Brunt for 
over nine thousand dollars. 

A deed recorded in Monmouth County Clerk's Office shows 
that Nicholas purchased of Robert Hunter Morris in 1750 a tract 
of six hundred acres of land at Tinton Falls. Mr. Bergen has 
doubtless been governed by the date of this deed when he states 
that Nicholas Van Brunt removed from Long Island to 
Monmouth County in 1750. The records of the Marlboro 
Dutch Church show that he was here nineteen years prior to 
that time. 

1904.] A Branch of the Van Brunt Family in Monmouth Co., N.J. 35 

His brother Rutgert remained at New Utrecht and lived and 
died there. He married Elizabeth daughter of Albert Coerten 
Van Voorhees, and had a daughter named Catharine who married 
Daniel Hendrickson, the Colonel of the third regiment of Mon- 
mouth Militia during Revolutionary War. He also had a son 
Rutgert who became an extensive land owner at Gravesend and 
New Utrecht. He also owned land in what is now Matawan in 
Monmouth County. He held many important offices in Kings 
Co., Long Island. He was a colonel of the militia and also High 
Sheriff of Kings Co., Long Island. 

He was a first cousin to Major Hendrick Van Brunt of Mon- 
mouth County who married Eleanor a sister of the famous Cap- 
tain John Schenck for whom the English offered a reward of 
fifty guineas living or dead. It was his acquaintance with Capt. 
Schenck which nearly ruined him. John Schenck and Capt. 
Marriner on Saturday evening June 13th, 1778, left Middletow 
Point, now Matawan, with a number of men in a whale boat in- 
tending according to the Long Island story, to capture David 
Matthews, the notorious mayor of New York City, a Miles Sher- 
brook, Major Moncrieffe and a Mr. Bache, who all resided at 
Flatbush, L. I. and within the British lines; fortunately for 
themselves the two first named happened to be away from 
home on that eventful night, but the last two named were found 
in bed, and they were compelled to arise and dress; they were 
then carried off to New Jersey as prisoners together with four 
negro slaves belonging to Mayor Matthews. 

Now after the battle of Long Island, the residents of Kings 
County were entirely in the power of the English army. Many 
of them in their fright and to save their property, took oath of 
allegiance to the King of England. John Schenck and Marriner 
landed on the shore of New Utrecht near midnight of June 13th, 
1778, and went to the houses of Col. Van Brunt and some other 
of their friends, to find out the exact location of every British 
sentinel at Flatbush and on the public road thereto. 

The British officers naturally thought, that this body of nun 
could not have gone through New Utrecht and returned without 
some of the inhabitants had known of it. They held that anyone 
who saw them and failed to give the alarm was guilty of high 
treason. Three days after the raid Col. Van Brunt, his brother 
Adrian, Rem Van Pelt and Aut Van Pelt were arrested and con- 
fined separately in Provost prison of New York City. Col. Van 
Brunt managed to bribe the officer of the guard to allow him at 
midnight a secret interview with each of his fellow prisoners. 
They agreed to stand together and deny all knowledge of the 
raiders. Although severely examined separately, and informed 
that the others had confessed, and his only salvation was to tell 
the whole truth, each one stood firm in their denial of all knowl- 
edge of the raid. 

As there were no witnesses or evidence against them, they 
were all discharged. If the English had known of Col. Van 
Brunt's close relationship or acquaintance with one of the leaders 

36 A Branch of the Van Brunt Family in Monmouth Co., N.f. [Jan., 

of this kidnapping party, Capt. John Schenck, they might not 
have got off so easy. 

Col. Van Brunt also loaned a considerable sum of money to 
his brother-in-law Col. Daniel Hendrickson of Monmouth County 
which he advanced to purchase powder, balls and other stores for 
his regiment. 

Nicholas Van Brunt the first of this name in Monmouth 
County made his will April 12, 1760. It was proved February 
1st, 1782, and is recorded at Trenton. He appoints his son 
Hendrick and Tunis Denise of Monmouth County executors. 

He devised his land at Tinton Falls to his two sons Hendrick 
and Nicholas equally. I do not know why he cut off his son 

Hendrick married Eleanor, daughter of Garret Schenck and 
Jannetje Williamsen Van Covenhoven, his wife. There were no 
children by this marriage. 

Hendrick VanBrunt was a Major in 3rd Regiment of Monmouth 
Militia. He was captured by the enemy and at first confined in 
the Sugar House in New York City, and afterwards was a paroled 
prisoner on Long Island. A letter written by him and signed by 
him, his brother-in-law Tobias Polhemus, Auke Wyckoff and 
other officers, to Gov. Livingston of New Jersey complaining of 
their destitution is published in Revolutionary Correspondence of 
Neiv Jersey. Some of these men had been prisoners nearly four 
years. I do not know whether they were ever exchanged. 
Hendrick Van Brunt's will is dated August 26, 1794 proved Feb. 
11, 1797 and is recorded at Trenton. He appoints his brother-in- 
law John Schenck, of Freehold Township and Auke Wyckoff, of 
Shrewsbury Township, his executors. He devises his real estate 
at Tinton Falls equally between his brother Nicholas Van 
Brunt, and the four sons of his brother Cornelius, deceased. 
That is one half to his brother Nicholas and the other half to 
Cornelius, Hendrick, Nicholas and Joseph C. the four sons of 
Cornelius Van Brunt, deceased. 

Cornelius married Magdalena Fenton about 1750, and had 
two sons who were baptised in the Marlboro Dutch Church. 

Hendrick baptized May 7, 1752. 

Cornelius baptized Jan. 28, 1754. 

He had two other sons and one daughter not baptized, Nich- 
olas, Joseph C. and Geesye. 

Hendrick son of Cornelius, according to records of Marlboro 
Dutch Church, married Sarah daughter of Samuel Bowne 
and Patience Cowenhoven his wife, March 17, 1779. He 
had a child named Lydia baptized in this church June 
20, 1780. 

In Book R of Deeds, page 165, etc., Monmouth Clerk's Office 
is record of a deed from Conover Bowne and Eliza his wife, at- 
torney in fact of John Bowne and Jane his wife, William Wyck- 
off and Lydia his wife, Hendrick Van Brunt and Sally his wife, 
Daniel L. Ketcham and Anne his wife, John Ketcham and Ellen 
his wife, Samuel Bowne, Jr. and Maria his wife, of first part; 
Conover Bowne having power of attorney from above parties, heirs

at law of Samuel Bow ne and Patience his wife deceased, said Con- 
over Bowne being also an heir at law, conveys to Klisha Walton, 
Hendrick Hendnckson, Janus Lloyd and John Hoff, twenty-one 
acres of land in Middletown Township. 

In Book R of Deeds, page 104, etc., is record of a deed dated 
July 28th, 1S06 from Hendrick Van Brunt and Sarah his wife of 
Brooklyn on Long Island to John Hall for two lots at Middletown 
Point (now Matawan). Hendrick Van Brunt removed to Brooklyn 
and lived there the rest of his life. 

Cornelius, the second son, married according to records of 
Dutch Church June 17, 1780, Margaret Mount and had three 
children baptized in this church, viz.: 

Mary baptized March 7, 1783. 

Joseph and William at same time. 

Nicholas the third son of Corneluis married Oct. 4, 1781, 
Adriantje daughter of Peter Tysen or Tyse, according to 
records of Marlboro Dutch Church, and had five children 

In Book A-2 of deeds, page 439, Monmouth County Clerk's 
Office is record of a deed from James Thompson and Susan his 
wife, Sarah Nivison, William Tysen, John Tysen and Sarah his 
wife, Nicholas Van Brunt and Adrian (Adrientje she makes her 
mark), Matthias Hulshirt and Elizabeth his wife, Obadiah 
Tysen, Tyle Brewer and Deborah his wife, heirs and assigns of 
Peter Tysen deceased late of Shrewsbury Township, to George 
Tysen for consideration of one dollar conveys forty-four 
and thirty-three hundredths acres in Howell Township, Mon- 
mouth Co., New Jersey. 

Joseph C. youngest son of Cornelius Van Brunt married Mary 

He does not join in deed conveying to Okey Hoagland the 
lands devised to him and his brother by his Uncle Hendrick 
Van Brunt and named below. He retained his share of this land 
until 1815. 

For §712,00, he and his wife Mary then convey away all the 
land devised to him in will of his Uncle Hendrick Van Brunt 
dated Jan. 27, 1794. 

Thus all the land left by Major Hendrick Van Brunt passed 
out of the family. 

Geesye the daughter of Cornelius married Okey Hoagland. 

In Book N. of deeds, pages 112 etc., Monmouth County Clerk's 
office is record of a deed dated April r, 1799, from Hendrick Van 
Brunt and Sarah his wife, Cornelius Van Brunt and Margaret 
his wife, Nicholas Van Brunt, Junior, and Adrian or Adriantje his 
wife (she makes her mark) and Nicholas Van Brunt, Senior, and 
Catharine his wife, all of Monmouth County. New Jersey, to < (key 
Hoagland of Burlington County. New Jersey, conveying to him 
263 acres of land at Tinton Falls in Shrewsbury Township, for 
consideration of ten thousand dollars. 

All the devisees under will of Major Hendrick Van Brunt join 
in this conveyance, except Joseph who retains his one-fifth share 
as above explained.

38 New Brunswick Loyalists of the War of the Am. Revolution. [Jan., 


Communicated by D. R. Jack, Historian of the New Brunswick Loyalists' Society; 

Cor-Secy. of the New Brunswick Historical Society; Author Centennial 

Prize Essay, History of St. John ; Editor Acadiensis etc. 

The causes of the War of the American Revolution and the 
justice of the claims put forward by either of the parties con- 
cerned in that memorable struggle, are not within the scope of 
the present article. That at its termination over one hundred 
thousand persons were compelled to leave the country to begin 
life again beyond the borders of the new republic, and that this 
movement was disastrous alike for victor and vanquished will be 
generally admitted. Neither does it fall within the compass of this 
sketch to dwell upon the possible results had an honorable truce 
been arranged, and an effort made to induce the Loyalists to cast 
in their lot with the young nation which had just come into 

As it was, many of the most capable and highly educated men 
in the various walks of life throughout the land who had adhered 
to the side of Great Britain found themselves at the close of the 
war penniless, without a home, without means of livelihood, and, 
with their wives and families were scattered broadcast over the 
British dominions. 

Many of them returned to Great Britain, many settled in the 
British West Indies, about 30,000 of their number settled within 
the confines of the present Province of Nova Scotia, and about 
1 0,000 settled in New Brunswick, then a portion of the province 
just named. 

The British Government acted generously, and, considering the 
inadequate facilities for communication and transportation then 
existing, with fairly commendable promptitude. Grants of land, 
either in town plots, or for agricultural purposes, were made as 
rapidly as surveys could be carried out, and in the meantime 
supplies of lumber with which to construct temporary homes 
were delivered to the distressed and unfortunate people. Full 
rations were granted to Loyalists and Refugees for the first year, 
half rations for the second year, and one-third rations for the 
third year. After this they were supposed to have been able to 
make a new commencement, and to undertake life's responsibili- 
ties without further assistance from the motherland. 

In the meantime a commission had been appointed by the 
British Government to hear the claims of the Loyalists for com- 
pensation for their losses in consequence of the war. Meetings 

IQ04-1 New Brunswick Loyalists of the War of the Am. Revolution. 39 

were held at various central points, and notices distributed at the 
more remote centres inviting all those who considered that they 
were entitled to compensation to appear and state their case be- 
fore the Commission. 

Unfortunately, many, in their remote country homes never 
heard of the appointment of such a Commission, and so failed to 
participate in the partial relief intended for them, others were so 
miserably poor that they could not afford the expense incidental 
to a journey to the nearest point of meeting and a proper hear- 
ing of their case. 

Copies of the evidence of those who did attend, together 
with the finding of the Commissioners in the several cases, are 
contained in more than sixty huge manuscript volumes, which 
may be consulted in the Lenox Library, New York. Th( 
volumes form interesting reading to the student of Loya- 
list biography, and as the statements made were taken down 
with much particularity, a great deal of history that would other- 
wise have been lost, has been preserved for the present and 
future generations. 

It is impossible at this remote period to properly distinguish 
in a list such as the following between the Loyalist and the 
Refugee. That at the close of the War the Loyalist hated and 
despised the Refugee is a matter of history. There were bitter 
complainings that a generous Government should mete out to 
those who had run away rather than fight for the cause which 
they had at first espoused, the same measure of relief afforded 
to those who had manfully borne the brunt of battle and suffer- 
ed honorable defeat. The government could not and did not 
discriminate in such instances, and it was possibly well that it 
was so. 

Time, the great healer of many woes, has left us with little or 
no means of distinguishing the two classes named. 

The regiments of disbanded loyal troops with their officers 
may assuredly be classed with those who wen- Loyalists in word 
and deed, and the records of many more or less prominent men 
have been sufficiently preserved to leave no doubt as to where 
they stood, but there were thousands of others whom it would 
now be difficult to place, and of many of whom no records beyond 
their actual names remain. 

The series of articles, to which these few words are intended 
as an introduction, represents what is probably the first effort to 
compile a complete list of the Loyalists who settled in what is 
now the Province of New Brunswick, and meagre and defective 
as it is, it represents the results of many years of research, 
through almost every known source of information. It is the 
writer's hope, however that it may be the means of arousing in- 
creased interest in the subject, and bringing to light much data 
that is at present difficult of access, or which might in the course 
of time become obliterated. 

It is intended to follow up the present work with something 
more detailed and comprehensive, and to this end the cordial 

4.0 New Brunswick Loyalists of the War of the Am. Revolution. [Jan., 

co-operation is solicited, of persons who may be able to assist by 
the suggestion of additional names obtained either from private 
records or from other sources which may not have been consulted. 

When it is remembered that among the ten thousand indi- 
viduals, there was an unduly large proportion of women and child- 
ren as a result of the war, and that the present list includes over 
3,000 persons, largely heads of families to whom grants were 
made, it will be conceded that at least something has been accom- 
plished towards the fulfillment of the task undertaken. 

An effort has been made to give in addition to the full name 
of each of the individuals enumerated, their location before and 
after the war. The particulars in the column headed "From" 
are painfully meagre, and an appeal is made to readers of the 
" Record" to furnish information concerning individuals with 
whose history they may be familiar, so that should a second 
edition of this work be undertaken it may be much more com- 
plete than that which is now published. 

In the second column will be observed one or more reference 
letters to which the following is the explanation. This key will 
not again be published during the continuance of the present 
series of articles, and readers who are interested in the work are 
advised to preserve it for future reference. It is as follows : — 

A. Grantees of Parr Town, now a portion of the City of 

St. John. 

B. Grantees of Carleton, now St. John West. 

C. Grantees of St. Andrews, Charlotte County. 

D. Grantees at Morristown (St. Stephen) The Port 

Matoon Association. 

E. Chiefly disbanded officers and soldiers of the 74th. 

Highlanders who settled in Charlotte County. 

F. Grantees of the 74th. Regt. at Digdeguash. 

G. Grantees of the 74th. Regt. at Schoodic Falls. 
H. The Penobscot Association. 

I. The Cape Ann Association. 

K. Loyalists concerning whom more or less extensive 
notes will be found in Sabine's Loyalists of the 
American Revolution. 
L. Persons buried in the Loyalists graveyard St. John, 
whose gravestones were extant in 1883, see "Loy- 
alist Centennial Souvenir," published that year. 
M. " Return of the Families etc. embarked on board the 
Union Transport, Cousett, Wilson Master, Began 
Huntingdon Bay, April 11th and completed April 
16th 1783." 
N. Persons who signed the Quaker Loyalist agreement 
"to settle themselves together on the River St. 
Johns in Nova Scotia." 
O. Names supplied from miscellaneous sources, chiefly 
the private records of the compiler of this list. 
Other reference letters will probably be added as the pub- 
lication progresses.

1904.] The Origin of the Name, Storm Van 45 


By Alfred L. Becker. 

Among the papers of Killian Van Rensselaer, first patroon of 
Rensselaerswyck, in New Netherland, which are the property of 
the Van Rensselaer-Bowier family of Amsterdam, Holland, is 
the log or journal kept by the skipper of the ship, "The Arms 
of Rensselaerswyck," of a voyage to America in 1636-7. A pack- 
age of these papers, perhaps all of them, are now in the posses- 
sion of the State Library at Albany, New York. They have 
been loaned to the State until February, 1904, to permit copies 
and translations to be made for publication ; their appearance as 
a publication of the State maybe expected during the coming year. 

The log above mentioned contains an item of especial inter- 
est to the many descendants of that picturesque character of 
early Albany, Storm Van der Zee. It is a confirmation of the 
tradition current in the family that he was called "Storm from 
the Sea" because he was born on the voyage to New Netherland 
during a storm. His father's surname was not Van der Zee, but 
Bratt. Albert Andriesz Bratt "de Noorman" was indeed the 
common ancestor of the Bratt and Van der Zee families, and be- 
sides he gave his name to the Norman's Kill, a stream just south 
of Albany which runs through the "Vale of Tawasentha" of 
Longfellow's Hiawatha, into the Hudson River. On the banksof 
this creek Albert de Noorman settled about the year 1637, there 
he lived with his wife Annetje Barents Van Rotmers, and with 
his second wife, Geetruy Vosburg, from whom he was divorced, 
and when he died, June 7, 1686, the chronicler who recorded his 
death took pains to state that he was "one of the earliest dwellers 
in the Colony of Rensselaerswyck. 

Just half a century before, September 25, 1636, the "Arms of 
Rensselaerswyck" set sail from Amsterdam, and it seems that 
Albert Andriesz and his wife, Annetje Barents, were passengers. 
They were a young couple from Frederikstad, Norway, as it 
appears from Killian Van Rensselaer's journal of his administra- 
tion as patroon, another of the Van Rensselaer-Bowier manu- 
script. Their ship spent New Year's day and a week or two be- 
sides at Ilfracombe, Eng., on the Bristol Channel, arrived in New 
York, in March, and finally at Beverwyck, Albany, April, 7, 1637. 

Under date of November 2, 1636, the log, which is stated to 
be a journal prepared for the Skipper, Jan Tiepkesz Schellinger, 
contains an entry of which the following is a literal translation : 

"Sunday, 2nd ditto: Ran 16 miles North-East by East, the 
wind about West ; by guess, latitude 41 degrees, 50 minutes ; with 
exceedingly rough sea ("met heel hoi waeter, " — literally, very 
hollow water) ; this day the waves broke over our helm repeated- 
ly, with the stormy weather ; this day was born here on the ship 
a child, who was given the name, and in England was baptized, 
Storm ; the mother, Annetie Barents ; the above the events of 
the day. " 

46 David Cole. [Jan., 


By Rev. Melatiah E. Dwight. 

The Rev. David Cole, D. D., educator, clergyman and author, 
died October 20, 1903, at Yonkers, N. Y., aged eighty-one years. 
He became prominent as a teacher and afterward as a minister 
of the Reformed Church, but it is especially because of his zeal 
in behalf of local history and genealogy, and his many contribu 
tions to the same, that his name is honored in genealogical 
circles. He was the author of "The History of Rockland County, 
N. Y. " as well as of other similar works, and it is on account of 
these labors that the following sketch of his long and useful life 
is given in the Record. There are too few like him who are 
ready to devote the leisure moments snatched from laborious pro- 
fessional duties to the study of the records of the locality in 
which they reside, and who are interested in the simple annals 
of the men and women, — for the most part lowly pioneers in the 
march of a benign civilization — who have lived there before them. 
We therefor gratefully pay this tribute to his memory. 

David Cole was born, September 22, 1822, at the family home- 
stead in Spring Valley, N. Y. He was of pure Holland descent. 
His father was the Rev. Isaac D. Cole, son of David Cole and 
grandson of Isaac Cole, all of Tappan, N. Y. The latter was the 
fourth in descent from Barent Jacobsen Kool, one of the officers 
of the West India Company in New Amsterdam as early as 1633. 
His mother was Anna Maria Shatzel, daughter of John Michael 
Shatzel, Jr., of New York. He received his preparatory educa- 
tion under his father's tuition and then entered Rutgers College, 
from which he was graduated in 1842. After graduation he 
adopted the profession of teaching and continued to follow it for 
more than sixteen years. He first taught a select school near 
his father's residence in Tappan and afterward a similar one in 
New Brunswick, N. J. In 1851 he became the principal of 
Trenton Academy (founded in 1 771) at Trenton, N. J. Largely 
through his instrumentality the State Normal School of New 

iersey was founded in 1854. The same year he was appointed 
y Gov. Rodman M. Price a member of its first board of trustees, 
and in 1857 was made professor of Latin and Greek in that insti- 

For some time previous to this latter appointment he had 
been privately studying for the ministry, and had established 
and carried on a mission which became finally the Fifth Presby- 
terian Church of Trenton. He was licensed to preach, April, 13, 
1858 at Pennington, N. J., by the Presbytery of New Brunswick, 
and on the 28th, of November of the same year was ordained to 
the ministry by the Classis of New Brunswick and installed as 
pastor of the Reformed Church of East Millstone, Somerset Co., 
N. J. In February 1863 he was elected Professor of the Greek 

. / .- ■ sC~S 

1904.] David Cole. 47 

Language and Literature in Rutgers College, and he continued 
to hold this chair until February 10, 1866 when he was installed 
in the pastoral charge of the Reformed Church of Yonkers, X. V 

He continued to serve this church with great acceptance and 
ability for the long period of thirty-one years, when on Septem- 
ber 1st, 1897 he resigned his charge, having reached the advanced 
age of seventy-five years. During his pastorate the present 
handsome edifice of the First Reformed Church was elected. 
He received the honorary title of Doctor of Divinity from 
Franklin and Marshall College in 1865, and was President of the 
General Synod of the Reformed Church in 1S84. 

Dr. Cole was an able and prolific writer. His published 
works, the table of which occupies one whole page of "The 
Manual of the Reformed Church in America" are too numerous 
to mention in this article. His first appearance as an author was 
in a small "Manual of English Grammar" published in 1848, 
which was followed by a larger work entitled " Principles of 
English Grammar, Applied." In 1854 he delivered an address be- 
fore the State Legislature upon the " Needs of the New Jersey 
Public School System" which was published for general circula- 
tion, and the same year he read a paper on "Classical Education" 
at the Smithsonian Institution which was published and which 
attracted much attention both in this country and abroad. After 
his entrance into the ministry his published works consisted 
mainly of sermons preached upon special occasions and historical 
addresses. He was greatly interested in church and local annals 
and was a gifted public speaker. Accordingly his services were 
in demand whenever the occasion called for a commemorative, 
or anniversary, discourse. Among the more important of these 
are: "Historical Address at Bi-Centennial of Founding of 
Yonkers City Hall Building," 1882; "Historical Sermon at 
Fortieth Anniversary of the Reformed Church of Yonkers, " 
1883; " Historical Address at Bi-Centennial of the Organization 
of the old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown, *' 1897 ; 
and the " Historical Address at Centennial of Founding of Rock- 
land County, N. Y. " 1898. In 1876 Dr Cole published an elab- 
orate genealogy of his own family under the title of "Isaac Cole 
and Catharine Servin." In 1876 he edited the "History of 
Rockland County, New York," and in 1886 contributed a " Hist' >rv 
of Yonkers" to Scharf's History of Westchester County. In 1894 
he published the "History of the Reformed Church of Tappan, 
N. Y. " which was prepared for the bi-centennial of that church. 
His last publication was the " First Record Book of the Old 
Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow ; a Translation of its Minutes 
and Elaborate Copy of its Registers with Exhaustive Index " 

Dr. Cole was an accomplished scholar and theologian, a 
faithful minister, a model citizen, and a man of singular nobility 
and purity of character, affectionate, generous and accessible to 
all. He possessed to a high degree the public confidence and 
esteem, and was beloved by his ministerial associates. At his 
death the whole city mourned, and the pastors of the several 
churches assisted at his burial. Later at a memorial service min-

isters and laymen united in paying a last tribute to his memory, 
and a resolution was offered that a monument be erected to 
him as a testimonial of the esteem in which he was held for his 
valuable services to the people of Yonkers. 

He was married, April 18, 1884, to Abigail D. Wyckoff, 
daughter of Jacob Wyckoff and Elizabeth Van Deventer, both of 
New Brunswick. She died August 27, 1902. They celebrated 
their golden wedding in 1894. A daughter and four sons sur-

• On page 134 of the Record (or Oct.. toe*. 1 stated that Daniel, son of Thomas Fuller 
(No. 17), m. Eunice Andrews. The only authority fot Daniel, son of Thomas, is an entry in the 
church record, giving the baptism of "Daniel, son of Thomai Fuller. April 4. 1731 " Either 
this is an error of the record in name and date, or that Daniel d young. In 1757. d. Jonathan 
Fuller, son of Thomas (No. ty), and his estate was divided among his brothers and sisters, 
among whom no Daniel appears. I now believe that the church record is in error, and refers 
to Daniel (72), son of Matthias.

1775, Nov. 


We have before us a letter from a valued friend and esteemed corres- 

fjondent touching upon that phase of genealogical work in which we have been 
ong and deeply interested, — the preservation of local records. In view of the 
fact that his question and suggestions are of interest to those concerned in the 
matter, we take this occasion to reply to the one and comment upon the other. 
Our correspondent asks whether it is not possible to build up among the 
members of various patriotic and historical societies a fund for the purpose of 

66 Obituary. [Jan., 

carrying on the work in a business-like way; and to his question we, under the 
burden of much experience, reply sadly, ashamedly, but simply, — no. Why? 
For countless reasons, among which are diverse other interests, innumerable 
demands upon the purse in our modern, complex life, and finally, apathy. We 
have found that there are many in whom " the spirit is williug but the flesh is 
weak," while the great majority of the financially strong are apathetic in spirit. 

Again, our correspondent asks if some plan could not be devised which 
would create an interest in the individual towns and, by agitation in their local 
papers, stimulate them to preserve their own records. To this we reply per- 
haps it could; but the plan would be long in producing effect, for the editor or 
contributor to the local paper would have to eternally keep at it, and bide the 
time when, by chance, his seed should fall upon fertile soil and blossom forth 
in some individual in the town, who should push the matter to completion. We 
know of some instances where the blossoming required three generations of 
growth. Beside, such agitation ought to be carried on methodically over an 
extended territory, and supervised by some one centrally located, thoroughly 
imbued with the subject, financially independent, patient, indefatigable and 
generous in the pursuance of a labor of love. With all these necessary quali- 
fications in mind, to whom can we point and say, " Behold the Man? " 

Our correspondent suggests conferring honorary membership in historical 
societies upon professional genealogists who have copied, or will copy, local 
records for their own use, and will present them to these societies. Professional 
genealogists guard such records jealously and regard them as valuable per- 
sonal property. Besides they are not always accurate. 

So far we have been tearing down a structure, stone by stone. Day 
laborers can do that, but it requires the master mechanic to build one. Let us 
try to do this. The key-note of our correspondent's questions and suggestions 
is Voluntary Labor. It is the corner-stone of his structure. We have tried to 
build upon it ourselves but invariably found it too weak. The antithesis is 
Business Method. If we employ the energy necessary to stimulate the former 
in effecting the latter, we shall soon be able to sit down and enjoy the first 
fruits of our labor. Agitate then the passage by our State Legislature of a bill 
which shall provide for the appointment of a State Commissioner of Public 
Records with an adequate salary and necessary funds, whose duty it shall be 
to search out these local records, transcribe them, publish them in an annual 
report and then compel the proper preservation of the originals; and lo ! the 
riddle is solved. Such a man would be centrally located, interested in his 
subject, financially independent and working for his hire. With these qualifi- 
cations in mind there are many to whom we could point and say, " Behold the 


Dwight, John, died Nov. 25, 1903, at his residence in New York City, 
aged eighty-four years. He was born Aug. I, 1819, at South Hadley, Mass., 
and was the son of Dr. Elihu Dwight of South Hadley, who was the eldest son 
of Justus Dwight and grandson of Capt. Nathaniel Dwight, both of Belcher- 
town, Mass. The latter was fourth in descent from John Dwight of Dedham. 
His mother was Lydia White, daughter of Capt. William White of Springfield, 
Mass., who was an officer in the Continental army under Washington and was 
killed at the siege of Yorktown, Oct. 13, 1781. He came to New S'ork in 1846, 
and began the successful manufacture of bi-carbonate of soda in this country, 
under the firm name of John Dwight & Co. In 1S96, the firm was merged in 
the corporation of Church & Dwight Company, of which Mr. Dwight was pres- 
ident until his death. He founded the Dwight School at Erwin, Tenn., and 
gave the Art Memorial building to Mount Holvoke College. 

He was married Jan. 13, 1841, to Nancy Shaw Everett, daughter of Metcalf 
Everett of Foxboro, Mass., the son of John Everett and Melatiah Metcalf, 
daughter of Samuel Metcalf of Wrentham, Mass. Her mother was Fanny 
Shepard, daughter of Major Joseph Shepard of Foxboro. She died Nov. 2, 

1904.] Obituary. 67 

1892, and he married March 14, 1894, Mrs. Clara Leigh Freeborn of St. Louis, 
who died March 20, 1900. He leaves lour children bv his tirst wife: Rev. Mel- 
atiah Everett and John Elihu Dwight, both ol New York City.; Am. a Frances, 
wife ot the Rev. Dr. rheodore A. Leggeti of Staten Island, and Marion, wife 
ol William I. Walker of New York, His second daughter, Clara McFarland, 
married Col. Alexander Phoenix Ketchum of this city and died in 1893. 

Floyd, John GBLSTON, a member of this Society, d. Nov. 27, 1903. in 
New York City, aged sisty two vcurs. He was born May 10, 1841, at Utica, 
N. Y., and was the son of Hon. John Gelston Floyd of Mastic, Long Island, 
who was a member of Congress from New York, the son of Nicoll Floyd and 
the grandson of den. William Floyd of Brookhaven, L. I., signer of the Dec- 
laration of Independence and a Colonel in the war of the Revolution. The 
latter was the fourth in descent (Nicoll, Richard, Richard) from Richard Floyd 
who came from Wales about 1650 to Massachusetts and settled shortly after- 
ward at Setauket, Suffolk Co., N. Y. His mother was Sarah Backus Kirkland, 
daughter of the Hon. Joseph Kirkland, Mayor of Utica and a great-great- 
granddaughter of Gov. Bradford of the Mayflower. 

In 1852 he removed with his father to the Floyd homestead at Mastic, L. I. 
He was graduated from Rutgers College in 1859, and later from the Albany 
Law School. During the Civil war he raised a company on Long Island and 
enlisted as Second Lieutenant in the 145th N. Y. Volunteers; was promoted to 
to First Lieutenant and later transferred to the artillery. He took part in the 
battles of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg and afterward was promoted to the 
rank of Captain. After the conclusion of the war he began the practise of his 
profession in New York City and for thirty years was also the publishei ol the 
Commercial and Financial Chronicle. He was deeply interested in the char- 
itable work of Calvary parish, and in the East Side branch of the Young Men's 
Christian Association where he worked for many years. He was a member of 
the Down Town, Century and Delta Phi Clubs, the St. Nicholas, American 
Geographical and New York Genealogical and Biographical Societies, and the 
Sons of the Revolution. 

John Gelston Floyd married in 1870, Julia F. Du Bois, who died in 1893. 
She was the daughter of Cornelius Du Bois and Mary Ann Delafield, and was 
the founder of the " Nursery and Child's Hospital" of this city. He married 
in 1898, Janet Tillotson Montgomery, daughter of the Rev. Dr. Henry F.gling- 
ton Montgomery, who was rector of the Church of the Incarnation in New 
Y'ork City from 185s until his death in 1874. Fie is survived by his widow and 
three children: William Flovd of New York City, who married in 1S98, Eliz- 
abeth Schuchardt Wells, daughter of Lawrence Wells; Rosalie Delafield 
Floyd, and Cornelia Du Bois Floyd. 

Green, Andrew Hasweli., one of the most distinguished members of 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, died Nov. 13, 1903, aged 
eighty-three years. He was killed at his own doorway by a negro whose 
unbalanced mind had conjured up a grievance against him. He was born 
Oct. 6, 1820, in Worcester, Mass., and was the son of William Elijah Green by 
his third wife, Julia Plympton. His father graduated from Brown University 
in 1798, and was a lawyer by profession. His grandfather was Dr. John Green, 
a physician, who married for his second wife, Mary, daughter of General Tim- 
othy Ruggles of Sandwich, Mass., by his wife Bathsheba Bourne, the daughter 
of Hon. Slelatiah Bourne of Barnstable, Mass., by his wife, Desire Chipman, 
the daughter of Elder John Chipman and Hope Howl.ind, daughter of John 
Howland of the M,i\ ''■;< r, 1620. He was proud of his Pilgrim ancestry and 
was a member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of New 
York. He never married and at his decease was living with his nieces, 
Lucy M. and Mary Ruggles Green, at 01 Park Avenue, in New York City. 

Mr. Green at the tune of his death was in the possession of all his faculties 
and his strength was unabated. The news of his untimelv end shocked the 
whole city and called forth universal expression of grief. He came to NYw 
York in 1835, studied law in the office of Samuel J. Tilden and afterward be- 

68 Queries. [Jan., 

came his law-partner. Although actively engaged in the practice of his pro- 
fession he took a deeper interest in civic affairs. With a singular devotion to 
the city of his adoption he made it his real business to foster and defend its 
welfare. There is hardly a passage in its history for the past fifty years 
which is not associated with his name, and in the most important steps of its 
progress he was the pioneer in the march of its advancement. By beginning 
and carrying to a successful completion the effort for the consolidation of New 
York and Brooklyn and the surrounding communities he won for himself the 
splendid title of " The Father of Greater New York," and at the time of his 
death he was acknowledged to be its foremost citizen. "It may truthfully be 
said that to no one man who has labored in and for the city during the last 
fifty years is the city under greater and more lasting obligations than to Andrew 
H. Green. The city itself, in some of its most beautiful and most enduring 
features, is the monument of his love; and the city may well cherish his hon- 
ored name with the undying gratitude that is due to a citizen who has made it 
both a greater and a better city than it was." — (Mayor Low in his message to 
the Board of Aldermen.) 

An adequate sketch of Mr. Green's useful and distinguished career will 
appear in a subsequent number of the Record. 

Lee, David Bradley, a member of this Society since Nov., 1888, died 
Aug. 25, 1903, in New York City, aged sixty-nine years. He was born at 
College Place, New York City, March 16, 1834, and was the son of David Lee, 
a merchant and banker of New York City, who was born in Ridgefield, Conn., in 
1787, and died in New York, Jan., 1853. He was the grandson of David Lee, of 
Ridgefield, and Esther Banks, who was the son of William Lee of Ridgefield, 
and Sarah Bates, and grandson of William Lee of Norwalk, Conn., and Mehit- 
able Ruscoe. His mother was Anne Duryea Phillips, a great granddaughter 
of Gov. Saltonstall and a descendant of Gov. Winthrop. She died abroad 
in March, 1899, aged ninety-three years. He was one of the oldest living 
members of the Union Club, having been elected a member of it when only 
seventeen years old and for many years lived at the club house when it was 
located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Twenty-first Street. 

He was married Aug., 25, 1895, at St. Martin's Church, London, to Agnes 
Giles, youngest daughter of the late Major Giles, U. S. A. After his marriage 
he lived abroad until the death of his mother, when he returned to New York. 
Mr. Lee had a brother Eugene Thompson Lee, who died in childhood, and four 
sisters : Anna Phillips, who never married and died in France in 1882 ; Blanche, 
who married in New York City, Capt., Augustus Chas. Murray of the Royal 
Navy, and is now living in Paris; Josephine, who married in Paris, Baron von 
Waechter-Lautenbach, Minister Plenipotentiary of Wurtemberg at the Court 
of the Tuilleries for twenty years: and Mary, who married, first, at Paris, 
Prince Frederick of Schleswig-Holstein, brother of the Queen of Denmark and 
grand uncle of the Empress of Germany. After Prince Frederick's death she 
was created Princess of Noer by the Empress of Austria, and married Count 
Alfred von Waldersee at Lautenbach, Germany, Field Marshall and General 
Aid-de-Camp of the Kaiser. The Baroness von Waechter-Lautenbach. and the 
Countess Von Waldersee came from Germany at the news of their brother's 
illness and were present at his funeral. He left no children.

van Vlierden.— In 1788 my great-grandfather, I'etrus van Ylierden, de- 
parted from Holland to St. Croix, where he was named a curate. 

He was accompanied by his second wife and children from this marriage. 

From there Petrus van Vlierden went in 1793 to Catskill, N. Y., where he 
was named a curate. His second wife, Maria Magdalena Houtkoper, daughter 
of J. H. Houtkoper and F. Both, with whom he married at Amsterdam on the 
27th Oct., 1784, died at Catskill the 13th Feb., 1799. Out of this marriage 
issued seven children, dates and names of their birthplaces are unknown to me. 

Sept. 3, 1800, Petrus married at Catskill his third wife, named Jane Ketel- 
tas, second daughter to the curate Abraham Keteltas. He died 13th Feb., 1 82 1. 

Five children from his second marriage were at that time still alive and 
they corresponded with their stepbrother, Abraham Tzeeuwen van Vlierden, 
sugar planter on St. Thomas I West Indies). 

April 14th, 1827, Abraham Tzeeuwen wrote to his brother in Holland, 
Matthys van Vlierden (grandfather of the undersigned I, that the five children 
of the second marriage "I their father were still all alive, married, had children 
and lived on their own farms in the State of New York. The names of these 
children were: 

1. Johanna Augusta Catharina. 

2. Jan Hendrik. 

3. Catharina Hendrika. 

4. Maria Magdalena. 

5. Petrus. 

(These children must have been born between 1784 and 1799.) 
Nov. 3d, 1796, the above mentioned Abraham Tzeeuwess, who had 
followed his father to the West Indies, married at St. Croix, Magdalena Rogiers, 
daughter of Johannes Rogiers, sugar planter there, and Elisabeth Suhm. 

From the eight children issued out of this marriage, the following were still 
alive in 1827: 

1. Elisabeth Suhm.b. at St. Croix, March 7, 1709. 

2. Petrus, b. at St. Croix, July 27, 1803. 

3. Warnerus Christiaan, b. at St. Thomas, Nov. 11,1810. 

4. Maria Wilhelmina, b. at St. Thomas, March 5, 1814. 

Since 1827 we have heard nothing from these branches of our family. 
Only 1 know that in 1887, there were no more Van Ylierdens living at the Dan- 
ish Antilles. A family tradition says that they were all killed in a slave rev- 
olution there. 

As I am making a genealogy of the family van Vlierdens, I should like to 
receive information, if there are still living descendants of Petrus van Vlierden 
in the United States and if they are in the possession of papers concerning the 
family, I beg them kindly to send information to the editor of the Record or 
direct to the undersigned.

Arnhem, (Holland). 

Concerning the following queries I desire to procure information from any 
readers of the Record who may be informed. 

(1) GeorgeStanton is mentioned as having belonged to the Ulster Co. Mil- 
itia and will probably be found in the early records of Kingston. Can anyone 
identify him and tell whether this was George Stanton of New York City who 
was brother of Henry and son of another Henry? 

(2) Who was the wife of Christopher Sturgis of Stamford and Fairfield, Conn.? 

(3) Can any reader tell anything about the origin of Gustav Martin Ruhl 
who is mentioned in the Burhans collection of church records among deaths 
given among members of the German Lutheran Church as their Deacon. This 
record is as follows: "22 Aug., 1742, Gustav Martin Ruhl, — Our Deacon, hon- 
orable & Beloved of all upright people." 

Under marriages in the same record I find: 1737, April 12. Married at 
Hackingsack, Gustav Martin Ruhl y. m. Maria Margaretha Bimper, both of 
New York. His wife's name is spelled " Bemper" in other places in the Dutch 
records. I am inclined to think Ruhl was a Palatine German. 

(4) Can any reader tell anything about the family of Abner Hunt of West- 
chester, N. Y.? He was probably a Friend. His daughter, Martha, married 
Isaac Carpenter of Harrison in 175 1. Abner was then spoken of as deceased 
and as of Westchester. The marriage of Martha and Isaac Carpenter had 
been brought before the meetings of the Society of Friends for Harrison's 
Purchase and Mamaroneck and some information ought to be contained in 
these records which are very inaccessible to average students of genealogy. 

(5) Have any of the readers of the Record any notes concerning the Smith 
family of Stamford and that vicinity? Humphrey Denton is said to have mar- 
ried Abigail Smith, though she is elsewhere spoken of as Abigail Mead. 

(6) Thomas June of Stamford, Conn., married Feb. 17, 1714, Sarah Smith. 
Can anyone tell her parentage and ancestry? 

(7) The first of the Lounsbury line of Connecticut, Richard Lounsbury is 
said to have married Elizabeth DuBois. Can anyone confirm this and give 
her parentage? It is supposed she belonged to the DuBois family of the Hud- 
son River valley. 

(8) Can anyone tell the ancestry of Maria Warner who married Henry Stan- 
ton (see Dutch records), Oct. 7, 1732? 

(9) Who was Hannah, wife of Thos. Carman, probably second generation of 
the Carman family. Was the wife of his father, John Carman, Florence Ford- 

(10) I would like information concerning the very early branches of the fol- 
lowing families: Valentine, Foster, Powell, Alsop, Thornicraft, of Long Island, 
ami Denton of Long Island and Greenwich, Conn.; Clay, Smith, Potter, Sturgis 
and Lyon of Connecticut (mostly of Greenwich, Stamford, etc., but some of 
them possibly of Rye, N. Y.), and Alsop of New York and Long Island, and 
Potts of Newtown, L. I., but stated in Shotwell's Annals to be of Honey Neck, 
Conn, (this last place I have never been able to find). I would also like to 
know whether any of the readers of the Record can tell anything about the 
family of Daniel Dunbar of New York at about 1750 to 1801? He was a prom- 
inent merchant there and married Naomi Shotwell, at that time widow of 
Israel Hallett of Newtown, L. I. 

For the most part the information wanted is to ascertain something 
about the parentage of the wives of the earliest generations of these families, 
but in some cases so little has been written about these families, or they are 
cases where it is desirable to differentiate the individuals from others of like 
names, that any information would be welcome about these matters from those 
who may have notes. This is particularly true in the case of the Alsop family 
about which very little information has apparently been given to the public 
who might be interested. 

I will be glad to freely exchange information with those interested.

Genealogy of a Part of the Third Branch of the Schermek- 
horn Family in the United States. Compiled by Louis Y. Schermer- 
horn, C. E. Printed for private circulation. J. 15. Lippincott Company, Phila- 
delphia, 1903. Quarto, cloth, pp. 19. 

In a letter to the Society accompanying a presentation copy of this inter- 
esting little book, Mr. Schermerhorn, the compiler, says: " In the compilation 
of this booklet I have confined the published material to my direct line ominit- 
ting collateral families, but in its collection 1 have secured a large amount of 
material relating to these collateral branches. If there are any members of the 
family who are interested in this subject I will be glad to place the information, 
without charge, at their disposal." 

We have no doubt that this generous offer will be gladly taken advantage 
of, but we sincerely hope that he will himself utilize the material in the publi- 
cation of a more extended record of this important family, which the work be- 
fore us shows that he is thoroughly capable of doing. The book is beautifully 
printed anil hound and contains as a frontispiece, the Schermerhorn coat-OI- 
arms, in colors. Mr. Schermerhorn's address is 510 Mariner and Merchant 
Building, corner Third and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia, Pa. 

Genealogy of the Claflin Family; being a record of Robert Mack- 
clothlan of Wenham, Mass., and of his descendants, 1661-1898. By Charles 
Henry Wight, member of the The Long Island Historical Society. 8vo,cloth, 
pp. 473. New York, 1903. 

This is a well arranged record of a prominent family, and shows the care- 
ful work of a genealogist who evidently believes that long eulogistic biogra- 
phies and family legends are not essential to a good gci hut still hopes 
that his "work will stimulate a love for the ties of kindred and tor the mem- 
ory of worthy ancestors." The book contains records of nearly 4,000 persons, 
besides a number of " unconnected Claflins," and an appendix of families con- 
nected by marriage. The work is beautifully printed and bound and has a 
good index. Copies can be obtained of the author, 128 Broadway, N. Y. City. 

Gknealogical Sketch of the Lamb Family. By Fred. W. Lamb 
Manchester, N. H. The John B. Clarke Co. 1903. 8vo, pamphlet, 7 pp. 

This sketch is arranged from the book of genealogical records compiled 
by the late Rev. Joseph A. Lamb of Old Mystic, Conn., who died April 3, 1893, 
and copied by his daughter, Miss Lucie A. Lamb, with extensive additions and 
corrections by Frank B. Lamb and Fred. W. Lamb. It treats of the descend- 
ants of Isaac Lamb of New London, Conn., who settled there about 1695 or 

New Harlem Past and Present. The story of an amazing civic 
wrong, now at last to be righted. By Carl Horton Pierce. With a review of 

the principles of law involved in the recovery of the Harlem lands. By Wil- 
liam Pennington Toler and Harmon He Pau Nutting, members of the New- 
York Bar. Profusely Illustrated. New York. The New Harlem Publishing 
Co., 16 East 23d St. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. xiv-f-332 and two maps. 

It is not the province of this review to enter into or discuss the merits or 
demerits of the controversy which the authors of this work are attempting to 
revive ; merely to set forth the contents of the book with a clear statement of 
its aims and objects. We all know that such a place as Harlem once existed, 
for we are familiar with its history by Mr. Riker, published in 1881, and it is 
easily in the memory of even that generation of New Yorkers now in the 
thirties when the Manhattan Elevated trains passed over an unsettled tract in 
the region of 110th Street and came into another " settlement," as it were, at 

Draw a line across a map of Manhattan Island from 74th street and the 
East River to 129th and the Hudson, and all of the Island lying above that 
line, even as far as Spuyten Duyvil, constituted the territory of New Harlem, 
according to this book. The authors claim that this land, together with the 
meadows lying immediately opposite in the Borough of the Bronx, was granted 

J 2 Book Notices. [Jan., 

to the town of New Harlem by a Patent issued by Gov. Nicolls in 1666, ratified 
by another Patent issued by the same Governor in 1667, and confirmed by a 
third Patent issued by Gov. Dongan in 1686, in which were named 23 Paten- 
tees. The authors of this work contend that the land so granted belongs to 
the heirs of these patentees, except such of it as has been already legally con- 
veyed or otherwise alienated. This of Course includes most of the tract, for 
the records will show these transfers. The land really in question is three 
parcels, one at 106th Street and Fifth Avenue, one at 204th St. and the Hud- 
son, (both of which it is claimed were never divided), and a third parcel which 
is the land exposed at low tide along the shore of the Island from 74th St. 
and the East River around to 129th St. and the Hudson. The authors state 
that to reclaim this land it is necessary to prove : — that the town of New Har- 
lem existed and still exists ; that the heirs of the original patentees and their 
associates constitute the members of the corporation to-day ; that the Statute of 
Limitations has no bearing on the case; and three other points in extensis. 
The book is practically divided in two equal parts. The first gives a clear, 
concise and extremely interesting account of the settlement, early growth of 
the town and manners and customs of the inhabitants ; the second discusses 
minutely the legal phases of the case and the points necessary to be proved. 
Of the first we promptly commend its style and interest ; of the second we are 
not competent to judge, but will leave it to the individual reader and the 

The Litchfield Family in America. Part I, Nos. 2 and 3. By 
Milford Jacob Litchfield, M. D., of Southbridge, Mass. 1903. 8vo, paper, pp. 

Numbers 2 and 3 of this genealogy are handsome and interesting pamphlets, 
well illustrated with views and maps, as well as facsimile signatures, and are 
carefully referenced. The compiler hopes to issue the next number m 1004, if 
the subscription list warrants the expense. 

-J? Life in a New England Town, 1787, 1788. Diary of John Quincy 
Adams while a student in the office of Theophilus Parsons at Newburyport. 
Edited by C. F. Adams. Boston. Little, Brown & Co. I903. 8vo, cloth, pp. 

The diary which is here presented is in the original contained in two small 
octavo volumes, bound in calf, bought in Paris and entitled " Ephemeris." It 
is a dignified, leisurely record of a young man's impressions of society, politics, 
and other affairs, written with a maturity and sobriety of style remarkable in a 
man of his age. There are copious footnotes explanatory of the names men- 
tioned in the text, which are very valuable from a genealogist's standpoint, as 
well as of interest to the general reader. The book has a fine frontispiece por- 
trait of Mr. Adams as he appeared in 1796, with a facsimile signature. There 
is a good index. 

The Lundy Family and Their Descendants, of Whatsoever Sur- 
name. With a Biographical Sketch of Benjamim Lundy. By William 
Clinton Armstrong. New Brunswick, N. J. J. Heidingsfeld. 1902. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 485. 

This work and the Lundy family too begin with three of the name, of three 
successive generations, Sylvester Lundy of Axminster, Eng., the father, Rich- 
ard Lundy, Quaker and emigrant to Bucks Co., Penna., in 1676, the son, and 
Richard Lundy, of Warren Co., N. J., the grandson. From the last, who was 
also an elder in the Religious Society of Friends, sprang a numerous progeny 
which this book traces. The principal associated familiesare : — Adams, Arm- 
strong, Bunting, Dennis, Eyestone, Gibbs, Kester, Laing, Large, Lenher, 
Lewis, Parker, Patterson, Schumck, Schooley, Silverthorn, Shotwell, Stockton, 
Willetts, Willson, Widdifield and Webster. The memoir of Benjamin Lundy, 
Philanthropist and Founder of American Abolition, is an able and interesting 
paper read before the Rutgers College Historical Club in 1897 by Wm. Clinton 
Armstrong, the author of this work and also of " A Genealogical Record of the 
Descendants of Nathan Armstrong," published in 1895.

History of the Lent (Van Lent) Family in the United States, 
Genealogical ani> Biographical, from the Time they left their 
Native Soil in HOLLAND, 1038-1902. By Nelson Burton Lent, of New- 
burgh, N. Y. Newburgh Journal Printing House and Bookbindery. I903. 
Sq. octavo, pp. 171. 

This is the first Lent family history ever printed, and concerns the de- 
scendants of Abraham de Ryck whose sons, for some reason not clearly 
ascertained, assumed the name of Lent, or van Lent. The family is emphatic- 
ally a New York State one, hence the book is of especial value to those seeking 
Westchester County, Orange County, and Long Island records. There is an 
excellent index. 

W11 ham BOWNE OF Yorkshire, Kng., and His Descendants. By 
Miller K. Reading, M.l). Remington, N.J. Press of H. E. Heats. 1903. 

Sq. octavo, pp. 47. 

When he began this genealogy, the compiler intended only to trace the 
descendants of William Bowne of the Revolutionary War, but many other facts 
ol interest concerning the family having come into his possession, he has in- 
cluded them in this interesting little volume. The authorities for his state- 
ments are given in footnotes, and there is a good double index, one part for 
names of individuals and the other for names of places. 

White Family Quarterly. An illustrated Genealogical Magazine de- 
voted to the interests o? the descendants of John White of Wenhain and Lan- 
caster, Mass. Almira Larkin White, Editor, Haverhill, Mass. One dollar per 
year, single copies, 25 cents. 

These are the third and fourth numbers of this magazine, which contains 
matter interesting to the White family, who are fortunate in having a family 
genealogist so untiring in their mutual interests. 

GINIA, 1766. A supplement to the Genealogy of the Hord Family. By the 
Rev. Arnold Harris Hord, Rector of St. Michael's Church, Germantown, Phila. 
I903. Imperial octavo, canvas cloth, pp. 30. 

This beautiful little book, with its quaint typography, or rather composi- 
tion, is full of romantic interest even to those in nowise connected, either hy 
blood or marriage, to the family of Hord. It gives incidents in the life of, and 
copies of legal transactions entered into by Thomas Hord, who came from 
England to America between the years 1701 and 1720, and was descended of 
an ancient race of gentry in England, which had for centuries held a dis- 
tinguished rank, but is believed now to be entirely extinct in the mother 

The Nicholas White Family. 1643 — 1000. Compiled by Thomas J. 
Lothrop. Taunton, Mass. I902. 8vo, cloth, pp. 493. 

In 1898 the descendants of Nicholas White gathered at Taunton, for 
a family reunion, and amongst the officers elected was Mr. Thomas J. Lothrop, 
who was selected as best qualified to serve as the family historian. At this, 
the first of several annual meetings, it was unanimously voted to publish a 
genealogy of the family, and the historian soon found the mantle of such re- 
sponsibility placed upon his shoulders, where it has rested gracefully indeed. 
Nicholas White, pioneer, was of Dorchester, Mass., of whom the author has no 
information regarding birth and ancestry, but has no doubt he was of the 
English Yeomanry. He married at Dorchester, where he was a freeman in 
1643, Susanna, daughter of Jonas and Frances Humphrey. Of their descend- 
ants this book gives seven generations notated genealogically according to the 
" Record and Register Plan," and fully indexed. The work is one that pleases 
ourfancy greatly, for it is admirably printed, carefully compiled and excel- 
lently arranged, and is specially commendable for the lack of portraits of 
" bewhiskered " individuals who appear as ancestors in many of our family 
histories but certainly had earlier periods in their lives when their features 
must have been better to look upon.

A Documentary History of the Dutch Congregation of Oyster 
Bay, Queens Co., Island of Nassau. Pamphlets 3 and 4. By Henry A. 
Stoutenburgh. New York. The Knickerbocker Press. 1903. 8vo, pamphlets, 
pp. 125-209, 209-291. 

These valuable numbers carry the names of the Dutch congregation and 
others added by the compiler during his Dutch researches, from Abbott to 
Ludlum. The names are alphabetically arranged, and much quaint and cur- 
ious information is given. 

Thirtieth Report of the Record Commissioners. A Volume of 
Records relating to the early History of Boston, containing Boston marriages 
from 1752 to 1809. 

Massachusetts is still in the lead in the matter of preserving in print her 
early records ; but we are hoping the " Empire State" will soon vie with her 
for the honor. This, the 30th volume of its kind contains : — Intentions of 
marriage, 1752-1761 ; marriages, 1762-1773 ; marriages, 1751-1809 ; out of town 
marriages and index. 

The Messages and Proclamations of the Governors of Iowa. 
Compiled and edited by Benjamin F. Shambaugh, Professor of Political 
Science in the University of Iowa. Volume IV. Published by the State His- 
torical Society of Iowa. Iowa City, Iowa. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. ix+382. 

The present volume of these " Messages " includes those of Governors 
Cyrus Clay Carpenter (1872-1876), Samuel Jordan Kirkwood (third term, 
1876-77), and Joshua Giddings Newbold (1877-1878). The messages and pro- 
clamations of Gov. Kirkwood during his first and second terms were published 
in Vol. II of this series. Preceding the official documents of each Governor is 
a biographical sketch of his life. 

Babcock Genealogy. Compiled by Stephen Babcock, M.A. New 
York. Eaton & Mains. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. 640. Bound under same cover, 
Isaiah Babcock, Sr., and His Descendants. A. Emerson Babcock of Roches- 
ter, N. Y. pp. 119. Separate index. 

This is a model genealogy. Well bound, well printed, with a clear and 
simple arrangement of vital records, and with nearly one hundred illustrations, it 
is a book one likes to handle. There are other points of excellence. With 
few ezceptions the places of birth, marriage and death are given with each 
name, and where reference is made to printed records, the authority is given. 
Comparatively few of the records were ever before printed. The index is very 
fine, covers 88 pages and contains 18,365 names, in which the women of the 
family are indicated under both maiden and married names. The coat of- 
arms and family origin were prepared by Rev. Charles H. Babcock, D. D., for 
years Rector of Grace Church, Providence, R. I. Fifty years ago the compiler, 
Mr. Stephen Babcock, entered the N. Y. School for the Blind, as a pupil, and 
has been principal teacher there since 1857. 

The second part of the book is also well arranged and has the advantage 
of a separate index. It contains the history of one branch of the family, com- 
piled by Mr. A. Emerson Babcock. 

The Greenes of Rhode Island, with Historical Records of 
English Ancestry, 1534-1903. Compiled from the Mss. of the late Maior- 
General George Sears Greene, U. S. v., by Louisa Brownell Clarke. New 
York, 1903. The Knickerbocker Press. Royal octavo, buckram, pp. xxviii-f 892. 

To open such a book as this is to be appalled at the volume of work it re- 
presents — the years required to gather the data, the hours, days and months of 
tabor necessary to put that data into shape for publication. In size and method 
of handling, the " Greenes of Rhode Island " resembles the Lockwood Geneal- 
ogy, but being of later compilation is superior to it. General Greene occupied 
much of the latter half of his long and busy life in researches among the records 
of his ancestors and at the time of his death in 1899, being then in his ninety- 
eighth year, left behind a mass of records and data which he had gathered and 

1 904.] Book Notices. 75 

had intended to publish during his lifetime. So much of his time was occupied 
in answering inquiries regarding these ancestors that the work was never com- 
pleted, and he died, leaving a request that his children would take it up and 
push the work to completion. Upon his two sons, Gearge Scars Greene, Jr., 
and General Francis Vinton Greene, devolved the duty and they placed the 
original data in the hands of Mrs. Clarke, who, after three years of constant 
and painstaking labor, has produced the finished volume, a monument to the 
memory of a busy and honored father, a symbol of sacred duty on the part ot 
Hi .1 1 utial sons. 

The work opens with a complete memoir of the life and services of Gen- 
eral George S. Greeneby his son, Francis Vinton Greene, embellished with 
various portraits ; then follows the genealogy of the family, arranged as only a 
competent genealogist knows how m do. The Greenes oi Rhode Island go 
back to three distinct progenitors, all of whom bore the Christian name of 
John. The present volume embraces only the the descendants of John 
Greene, a surgeon, who emigrated from Salisbury, England, and settled in 
Warwick, Rhode Island, as early as 1637 and was the father of Major John 
Greene, Deputy Governor of the Colony oi Rhode Island. His descendants 
are traced to the tenth generation, the personal numbers running as high as 
4876. Female lines are extended lor two generations and authorities treely 
cited. Beside the body of the work there are interesting chapters on the fol- 
lowing: The House of Greene by Robert llalstead, London, 1685; the 
Greenes of Northamptonshire ; Uraton, Northamptonshire ; Houghton, North- 
amptonshire ; Greene's Norton, Northamptonshire; Pedigree of Greene's 
Norton ; Gillingham, Dorsetshire ; Bowridge Hill in the Parish of Gilhngham ; 
The Greene's of Dorsetshire ; Settlement of Warwick. K. I., and the Greene's 
of Warwick, R. I. The volume closes with a chapter on the Family Arms, 
another giving the latest researches in England, and appendices of Wills and 
Deeds ami notes and correspondence. The whole work is admirably printed, 
carefully compiled and fully indexed ; and we fully agree with Mrs. Clarke, 
who says in her preface that " the labor of compilation from another's notes 
requires unusual patience, exactness and perseverance, and becomes the more 
difficult when consultation is no longer possible." We, who understand these 
things and fully appreciate the magnitude of such a work, desire here to pay a 
tribute to the memory of our honored member and one-time President, to the 
sentiment of duty which actuated his distinguished sons in producing this vol- 
ume, and finally to the services and capable labor of the compiler, who has 
added the finishing touches to a truly noble genealogical work. 

The History of the Parshall Family from the Conquest of 
England by William of Normandy, A. D., 1066, to the close of the 
iqth Century. Ry James Clark Parshall, Esq. Syracuse. Press of Crist, 
Scott & Parshall, Coopcrstown. I903. Quarto, half leather, pp. 280-T-xxi. 

This handsome volume deals with the English origin and the American 
descent of the Parshall family of Southold, Suffolk Co., N. Y., whose first 
American ancestor was James Parshall who married Elizabeth, only daughter 
of David and Mary (Lerringman) Gardiner of East Hampton. The work is 
arranged in families, each having a number in Roman numerals. To facilitate 
search, each progenitor has the number of the family which he founded placed 
after his name in his birth record. The book has good references in footnotes, 
quoting not only printed and other recorded authorities, but giving personal 
statements of individuals, a very worthy feature. This compilation was a labor 
of love, and shows it. There is a good index. 

Pioneer Period and Pioneer People of Fairfield County, Ohio- 
By C. M. L. Wiseman. Small 8vo, cloth, 429 pp. 1001. J. B. Heer Printing 
Co., Columbus, O. 

In this modest volume the writer has sketched the pioneer period of Fair- 
field Co., Ohio, and given the record of the pioneer families. A romance, a 
history and genealogy all in one. The author has the rare gift of making 
genealogical records interesting and the careful preparation and arrangement 
of his work leaves no room to doubt its accuracy. 

76 Donations. [Jan., 1903. 

A Genealogy of the Curtiss Family, being a Record of the De- 
scendants of Widow Elizabeth Curtiss, who settled in Stratford, Conn., 1639- 
40. By Frederic Haines Curtiss. Boston. Rockwell & Churchill Press. 1903. 
Quarto, buckram, pp. 252. 

This name has long been regarded by those who bear it, as distinct from 
Curtis, and not a mere variation of spelling. In presenting the genealogy, the 
compiler has carefully considered the family claim to a coat-of-arms, borne by 
an American descendant, and seems to find good reason for its existence. 
There are two quaint maps of English counties, and other interesting features. 
The book is very attractive and has 33 pages of index which is always a valu- 
able point.

By Richard Henry Greene, A.M., LL. B. 

Few men of themselves alone, without the accessories of posi- 
tion and favoring environment, have made a name as did Andrew 
Haswell Green. History records the achievements of men born 
to the purple, or floated to the top in the storms of armed con- 
flict, but few have soared into prominence amid the quiet of 
business and in the prosaic times of peace. The pomp and 
pageantry of glorious war has ever bedizened the career of men 
of martial success such as Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, Peter 
the Great, Frederick and Napoleon, almost excluding from the 
first rank of greatness those who have striven in other activities. 
But slowly and surely the brutal standards of antiquity and of 
mediaeval times are giving way before the progress of Christian 
altruism, making room for the men of peace to take their place 
among the foremost. 

We have labored to discover a just parallel between the sub- 
ject of this paper and any among the great citizens of the past. 
We cannot draw a parallel between him and Themistocles, for 
while the latter could truthfully boast: "I know how to raise a 
small and inconsiderable city to glory and greatness," yet he was 
driven from Athens as a selfish trickster. Neither can we com- 
pare him to Aristides, with whom, according to Plutarch, " Virtue 
was the only object he had in view in the whole course of his 
administration," and who, although he had been the commanding 
general and chief magistrate of the Athenians, did not leave 
enough to meet the expense of his funeral. For, while he was 
inflexibly just and incapable of falsehood, flattery and self-ambi- 
tion, his reputation was largely due to his military achievements. 
He was too good for his age. Nor can we compare him with 
Pelopidas, eulogized by Euripides as "he who dies in virtue's 
arms," and who brought his native city to the height of greatness; 
for he was born to wealth, was the friend of Epaminodas, and was 
great in war as well as peace. All of these might have been 
unknown to fame had it not been for their wars and victories. 

Coming down to the modern era (the 14th century), Cosimo de

Medici, the Florentine merchant who adorned his native city; 
and his grandson Lorenzo, who raised Florence to opulence and 
prominence in Italy, give us examples more in the sphere of the 
person we are considering; but their public benefactions and 
services came after mercantile successes had made them rich and 
had supplied them with the means for their undertakings. 

Andrew Haswell Green was born October 6, 1820, at Worces- 
ter, Mass., and was educated at the Academy in that place. In 
this quiet New England village, a community of thrift, integrity 
and literary culture, but without wealth, power or prominence, 
he began life, at a time when this country was entering upon a 
new period. The second war with England had been favorably 
terminated and an era of good feeling inaugurated with the elec- 
tion of Monroe that year to the presidency without opposition. 
The war had ended the Federal party which opposed it and had 
introduced a protective tariff (as a Southern measure), which 
proved a boon to the country. The strife of war and politics had 
given away to business enterprise and commercial prosperity. 
Yet the few states which composed the union were poor and weak, 
and the centre of population of the United States was only a 
little more than one hundred miles west of Annapolis ; while the 
great struggle of our history began that very year, with the ad- 
mission of Missouri on the compromise that thereafter no slave 
state should be admitted north of 36° 30 1 . Enough has been 
said to show that the time in which Mr. Green came upon the 
stage, while not a period of excitement when the passions of 
men are awakened and they are forced into the whirl of affairs, 
was yet as the lull before the storm ! The nation was being pre- 
pared for the convulsion which was to come. 

Men are made not only by their age and environment, but by 
heredity, education and descent. All may not accept this, yet 
most men do not expect to gather grapes of thorns or figs of 
thistles. They believe in the general rule, " like father, like 
son," and fear lest the sins of the fathers be visited upon the 
children. The founders of New England, both Pilgrim and Puri- 
tan, came from the old home seeking liberty to worship God. 
From both of these Mr. Green traced his descent; the Tilleysand 
John Howland came on the Mayflower in 1620, while his paternal 
line was from Thomas Green, who was born in Leicester, Eng- 
land, about 1606, and landed in Massachusetts Bay some fifteen 
years after the settlement at Plymouth. 

The name Green (at first Greene in nearly every case), was 
common in New England in the early half of the seventeenth 
century. These families were not related so far as known, but 
this is not impossible. There were three distinct families in 
Maiden, where Thomas, the ancestor of Mr. Green, settled ; 
another Thomas died there in 1674, and James who was made free- 
man in- 1647, all of whom left descendants. There were other 
English settlers of the name, to wit : John of Charlcstown; Per- 
cival of Cambridge; William of Plymouth; Thomas of Roxbury; 
John of Salem, and William of Woburn, in Massachusetts. Just 
over the line in the neighboring state of Rhode Island were John 

iqo4.] Andrew Haswell Green. jg 

of Kingston; John of Newport, and surgeon John of Warwick. 
Twelve emigrant ancestors of as many families of this name, in 
the 17th century in New England. 

Thomas, the first ancestor of the family under consideration, 
settled in that part of Maiden, now Melrose, and by his wife 
Elizabeth had ten children. 

Thomas, Jr., eldest son and second child, married Rebecca 
Hills, and had two sons and three daughters. 

Samuel, the youngest, styled " Captain," married Elizabeth 
Upham by whom he had eight children. They removed to 
Leicester. That part of Maiden where he lived was thereafter 
called Greenville in his honor. 

Rev. Thomas, both physician and minister of the Baptist 
church, married Martha Lynde and had seven children. 

Dr. John studied medicine with his father and practised in 
Worcester. He was a member of the Committee of Safety and 
a representative in the Provincial Assembly, by virtue of which 
services his grandson, Mr. Green, was admitted into the Sons of 
the American Revolution. He had three children by the first 
and ten by the second wife, who was Mary, daughter of Brig. 
Gen. Timothy Ruggles, of Sandwich, Mass. 

William Elijah, the sixth generation from the emigrant, was 
born at Worcester in the present residence of the family called 
"Green Hill," which had been purchased by his father. He 
graduated at Brown University, studied law and practiced at 
Worcester. He was married four times and had eleven children, 
nine by the third wife and one by each of the two earlier mar- 
riages. The subject of this paper was the seventh child and 
second son. His mother was Jane Plympton, daughter of Oliver 
Plympton, who was only seventeen when the struggle with the 
mother country began; but as a private in the militia he answered 
his country's call. 

Mary Ruggles, mentioned above as the wife of Dr. John 
Green, was the daughter of Timothy Ruggles, born October 20, 
171 1, and graduated at Harvard in 1732; was Judge and t'hii 

iudge of Common Pleas, Colonel and Brigadier-General in the 
'rench and Indian War, and Representative in the General 
Court of Massachusetts for twenty-four years, and was twice 
the Speaker. He was also a delegate to the Stamp Act 
Congress and was made its president, but refused to concur in 
its measures, and when the King's troops left Boston he accom- 
panied them, going to Nova Scotia where he died in 1795. Here 
is the record of the busy life of a prominent man. We may not 
judge him for his loyalty to the Crown since he had been trained 
to it for a period of more than sixty years. His father, likewise 
named Timothy, was a Harvard man of 1707 and a minister of 
the gospel. His grandfather. Captain Samuel Ruggles, Jr., 
(1658-1716) married Martha, daughter of Rev. John Woodbridge 
and grand-daughter of Gov. Thomas Dudley, of Massachusetts. 
His great-grandfather, Samuel Ruggles, who was also a captain 
in the militia and a representative in the General Court, was the 
son of Thomas Ruggles, the emigrant from Nazing, England, in 

80 Andrew Haswell Green. [April, 

1637 to Roxbury, Mass., where the church record says, speaking 
of him and his brother : " They were children of a godly father." 
No one need blush for any name in this noble line of seven gen- 
erations reaching back to the mother country. 

Notwithstanding the dignity of the foregoing Puritan lines, 
Mr. Green was more proud of his descent from the Mayflower 
Pilgrims; — John Tilley and his wife, both of whom died the first 
winter, leaving Elizabeth, the daughter who accompanied them, 
and later married John Howland, confidential man of Carver the 
first Governor, who became one of the leaders of the Colony 
both in goverment and business enterprise. Hope Howland, 
their daughter, married John Chipman, long ruling elder at 
Barnstable and representative for many years. Desire Chipman, 
their daughter, married Melatiah Bourne of Sandwich, son of 
Shearjashub and grandson of Richard Bourne, who was ordained 
by Eliot to instruct the Indians at Mashpee. Bathsheba, their 
daughter, married Gen. Timothy Ruggles, before mentioned. 

Thus at the risk of trying the patience of those who are satis- 
fied with the present we have traced the blood which warmed 
the life of our friend through several lines, and have found in 
each men of courage, heart and intellect. What they were in 
their day he became in his. Doing the duty nearest at hand is 
the key to a useful life, but working out plans for man's better- 
ment is the road to fame. Andrew H. Green was a leader, plan- 
ning, constructing, improving; not satisfied to go in old ruts, but 
essaying greater and nobler results and better activities. Such 
an one may be brushed aside by many in their mad rush for gain, 
but those who knew him trusted and followed him. Mr. Green 
was such a man as Benjamin Franklin praised "who did some- 
thing worth writing about, and wrote that which was worth read- 
ing." Boswell, the greatest of biographers, hints somewhere 
that the true biography tells the talk, the written words and little 
things of the daily life. Mr. Green's words were plain, earnest, 
instructive. Here is an extract from his address, October 6, 
1898, when he was presented with the medal struck in his honor 
as the father of Greater New York : — 

" Our national history shows that unification is an American 
principle, and that movements in this direction never go back- 
ward. As years have gone by the gradual adjustment of the 
constitutional relation of the States has served only to strengthen 
the permanency of their union, and the same may be confidently 
predicted of our united city. With the lapse of time, as the 
relations of these constituent communities come to be better 
understood, and in the light of experience the laws governing it 
become properly modified and adjusted, our municipal coherence 
will grow in strength and in the assurance of advantage to the 
interests of all. In the realization of these beneficent results, 
which must inevitably ensue from a wise and honest adminis- 
tration of the people's affairs, will appear the amplest justifica- 
tion of the step which we have lately taken." 

These earnest, forceful and truthful words fitly introduce 
what we wish to say concerning the part which Mr. Green took 

IQ04-] Andrew Haswell Green. & 1 

in the accomplishment of the unification of the cities and settle- 
ments surrounding the port of New York. We remember as a 
boy, that when Brooklyn and Williamsburg were united into one 
municipality, there was talk that these and New York would 
some day consolidate. But this was not taken seriously by any 
large percentage of people on either side of the East River. 
Cyrus P. Smith, who had been mayor of Brooklyn many years 
before, and was then in the State Senate, proposed it in that 
body, but it was defeated, as a similar proposition had been 
in 1S51. The Metropolitan police bill in 1S59 established a dis- 
trict including both cities and Richmond County, and this was 
followed by similar acts for other departments, but they lasted 
only for a dozen years. It took a courageous man to lay the 
matter before the Park commissioners in 1S68 as Mr. Green did. 
In that communication he showed that he knew what he was 
planning and meant to accomplish it, as he did many years after, 
and so won for himself the splendid title, accorded to him by all, 
" The Father of Greater New York." 

The writer, out of his own experience as an executive mem- 
ber of another party, can testify to the non-partisan spirit with 
which Mr. Green performed his duties in connection with the 
parks and public improvements. Not only unpartisan in politics 
he was liberal to all creeds and every nationality. Witness his 
words when the tablet was placed on the old Hebrew cemetery : 
"The debt which this government has never paid in dollars, let 
us freely acknowledge in words of gratitude, and yield our tribute 
of appreciation to those loyal and generous men of the Hebrew 
faith who helped our forefathers win the liberties which the 
people of every faith and from every clime now enjoy under the 
Hag of our country. * * * I venture to express the hope that 
this tablet, which our two societies are about to erect to mark 
the place where people of the Hebrew faith were first laid to 
rest on American soil, will serve as a token of the hospitality, 
freedom and toleration with which the United States should 
entertain people of all nations and beliefs — a reminder of our 
duty as Americans to our fellow citizens, and a bond to draw us 
all together more closely in the kindly relation of friendly 
mutual regard." 

Is it wonderful that this man, having gone into the office of 
that great leader of men, Samuel J. Tilden, so gained the confi- 
dence of the latter that he was chosen trustee of that man's pos- 
sessions when he came to die? Nor was this the only instance of 
such selection. William B. Ogden, the railroad king of Chicago, 
did the same. These marks of confidence by such men show 
how strong was the faith men placed in Mr. Green's integrity. 

We might recite, as others are doing, the catalogue of the 
offices which he held, as Commissioner and President of the 
Board of Education; Commissioner, Treasurer, President and 
Comptroller of Parks; Deputy and Controller of the City, when 
he saved its credit and reorganized its finances after the whole- 
sale plunder of the Tweed ring; Commissioner to revise the 
State tax laws; Commissioner for the New York and New Jersey

Bridge, and Member of the Charter Commission for Greater 
New York. He was not in office for pay or power. Riverside 
Park and the drive testify to his taste and creativeness; so also 
do the Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History, the 
Zoological garden and Washington bridge which adorn this city, 
and, at Niagara, the park and reservation of which commission 
he was the president. 

Like DeWitt Clinton, who united the great lakes with the 
ocean and who resembled him in his public spirit, Mr. Green was 
identified with all the literary and educational enterprises of his 
time. He was connected as member or officer with the American 
Antiquarian Society, the New York Historical Society, the New 
York Geographical Society, the New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society, the New York Zoological Society, the New 
York Agricultural Society, the American Museum of Natural 
History, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public 
Library, the New York Academy of Science, the State Bar Asso- 
ciation, the New York Juvenile Asylum, the Society for the Pre- 
vention of Cruelty to Children, the American Jewish Historical 
Society, and many others. We have mentioned in another place 
his membership in the Society of Mayflower Descendents in 
New York and have alluded above to his membership in the Sons 
of the American Revolution. 

On Friday the 19th of November, 1903, before his own door 
at 91 Park Avenue in the City of New York, without warning, 
without cause, a madman robbed his family, his friends, the city, 
of this noble citizen. 

As evidence of his active participation in public affairs and 
the unintermitting calls upon his time and strength in further- 
ing such matters, at the very time when the wires were vibrat- 
ing with the story of his assassination, upon our desk lay two 
invitations, one signed by him as President of the American 
Scenic and Historic Preservation Society, the other an invitation 
to the unveiling of a tablet at which he was to be the principal 

No truer or better words have been uttered in tribute to his 
memory than those of New York's noble mayor, who shared with 
him the blood of the Tilleys, Howlands and Chipmans, in 
his message to the Board of Aldermen announcing the death of 
Mr. Green : — " It may truthfully be said that to no one man who 
has labored in and for the city during the last fifty years is the 
city under greater and more lasting obligations than to Andrew 
H. Green. The city itself, in some of its most beautiful and 
most enduring features, is the monument of his love; and the 
city may well cherish his honored name with the undying grati- 
tude that is due to a citizen who has made it both a greater and 
a better city than it was." 

Andrew H. Green was a man of the highest type, and his hold 
upon life in all its phases was certainly remarkable. At the time 
of his death, although an octogenarian, he was in the full posses- 
sion of his faculties and his natural strength was unabated. He 
was a forceful speaker and writer, an able counsellor, an incor- 

IQ04.] A Branch of the \'an Iirunt Family in Monmouth Co., X.J. S % 

ruptible administrator, a singularly public spirited citizen^ de- 
voted with a passionate ardor to the interests of the city of his 

adoption, and a man of rare symmetry of character, simple, 
humane, reverent, just and generous to all. Although stern and 
uncompromising in the pursuit of his objects, his single-minded 
devotion to the public welfare and his perfect candor made even 
the enemies of his measures forgive his attitude toward them. 
Beloved and honored he was taken suddenly from our midst, but 
his work remains and his name will be held in lasting remem- 
brance :

Eleanor Schenck widow of Major Hcndrick Van Brunt makes 
her will November 19, 1799. It is recorded in Book A. of Wills, 
page 658, etc., Monmouth County Surrogate's Office. It was 
proved February 24, 18 14, she describes herself as the widow of 
Hcndrick Van Brunt, deceased. The witnesses swear that she 
was the widow of Hendrick Van Brunt and afterwards wife of 
Sheriff David Forman. She had no children by cither husband. 

She leaves her property equally to her two brothers, John and 
Garret Schenck, and her five sisters Anne Berry, Sarah Wikoff, 
Mary Polhemus, Jane Denise and Catharine Denise. 

Her brother John Schenck of Freehold Township and her 
brother-in-law Auke Wikoff of Shrewsbury Township are named 
as executors. She was the second wife of the famous Sheriff 
" Black " David Forman of Monmouth County. He died prior to 
her. His will is dated February 24, 1802, was proved August 2, 
1S13, and recorded in Book A. of Wills, page 613, etc., Monmouth 
County Surrogated Office. He provides for his wife Nelly, leaves 
his real estate equally to his three sons Jonathan, Tunis and 
Samuel. Gives $1,500 to his daughter Anne Lloyd. 

Nicholas, the third son of Nicholas Van Brunt, the first settler 
in Monmouth County, married January 15, 1767, Catharine a 
daughter of William Cowenhoven and Annetje Hendrickson, a 
widow. She was his second wife. Catharine their daughter was 
baptized in the Dutch Church of Monmouth County, April, 
16, 1749 

Nicholas Van Brunt was a sturdy and active patriot during 
the revolution. 

He and Daniel Hendrickson were the deputies from Shrews- 
bury Township in 1775 to the Provincial Congress of New Jersey. 
He was also a captain in the third regiment of Monmouth militia, 

84 A Branch of the Van Brunt Family in Monmouth Co., N.J. [April, 

and the High Sheriff of Monmouth County in 1778. He removed 
all the prisoners from the county jail at Freehold to Morris 
County the day before the British army occupied this place on 
June 27, 1778. He, with John Smock, Peter Cowenhoven and 
Hendrick Voorhees were Commissioners of Loan for Monmouth 
County under the act of 1786 to let out on loan by the State of 
New Jersey one hundred thousand pounds. 

By Catharine Cowenhoven his wife, Sheriff Nicholas Van 
Brunt had the following children. 

William, born February 4, 1768 ; for some reason this child 
was not baptized, at all events no record of his baptism appears 
in book of Marlboro Dutch Church. 

Their other children were all baptized in this church, viz : 

Cornelius, baptized July 23, 1769. 

Nicholas, baptized August 4, 1771. 

Antje, baptized May 8, 1774. 

Mary, baptized June 25, 1775. 

Hendrick, baptized April 5, 1778. 

Daniel C, baptized April 30, 1780, and died young. 

Sarah Wycof, baptized Sept. 28, 1783. 

Daniel C, baptized Nov. 18, 1787. 

William Van Brunt the eldest son married November 23, 
1785; Elizabeth, a daughter of Kenneth Hankinson, also an 
active and prominent patriot during the Revolution. He was 
also a captain in the Monmouth militia and one of the Commis- 
sioners appointed to confiscate and sell the real estate of Loyal- 
ists who joined the King's army, or went within the British lines. 
See minutes of Court of Common Pleas of Monmouth from 1778 
to 1790. Also records of executions out of this court for same 
period. Kenneth Hankinson and Eleanor, his wife, by deed 
dated April 19, 1795, conveyed to their son-in-law William Van 
Brunt a farm of 209 14-100 acres in Freehold Township. This 
seems to have been an advancement, for in his will dated Oct. 9, 
1807, and recorded in Book A. of Wills, page 229, etc., Surrogate's 
Office of Monmouth County, he gives to his daughter Elizabeth 
Van Brunt only a silver pint cup, and does not mention her hus- 
band. This shows that he considered the land deeded as this 
child's full share of his estate. 

By deed dated March 15, 1800, and recorded in Monmouth 
Clerk's Office William Van Brunt and Elizabeth Van Brunt, his 
wife, conveys this farm to Louis Cowenhoven for nearly six thou- 
sand dollars. He must have removed about this time to Steuben 
County, New York, for he died at Lockport, New York. 

The records of Marlboro Dutch Church show that William 
Van Brunt and Elizabeth Hankinson, his wife, had the following 
children baptized. 

William Conovcr, baptized Feb. 8, 1789. 

Nelly, baptized May 15, 1790. 

Catharine, baptized Jan. 13, 1798. 

Kenneth Hankinson, baptized June 24, 1798. 

He had, however, other children born in Monmouth County 
not baptized, and, of course, after he removed from New Jersey

1. William Van Brunt and Elizabeth Hankinson his wife, 

had according to family history fifteen children. Their 
eldest child is said to have been a daughter named 
Eliza, born in 1786, but not baptized. She is said to 
have married one John Freeman a school teacher of 
Monmouth County, and had two boys, Matthew and 
John. Their father died when these children were 
young, but the mother managed to give her boys a 
good education. Matthew Freeman became an editor, 
John studied law and settled at Natchez, Miss., where 
he became a prominent man, was attorney-genera] of 
this State, and held other important offices. The

William Van Brunt, the father of these fifteen children was a 
stout broad shouldered man standing five feet ten inches in his 
stockings. He had fair skin, keen blue eyes, two rows of double 
teeth, and was an athlete in his younger days. 

At age of eighty-two, he read without glasses and had not lost 
a tooth. He died at Lockport, New York, in autumn of 1853. 

He was a farmer by occupation and followed same business in 
Steuben County. New York; he was also a judge in this county. 

His wife, Elizabeth Hankinson, was five feet eight inches in

William Van Brunt was ten years old when battle of Mon- 

86 A Branch of the Van Brunt Family in Monmouth Co., N.J. [April, 

mouth was fought. His father was High Sheriff of the county, 
and had gone from home to remove a lot of Tory marauders con- 
fined in county jail to some other place as the British army was 
coming. Before his father got back, his mother was terrified at 
the sound of the cannonade. William Van Brunt afterward told 
how he listened to this noise, and thought his father would never 
get home. He also remembered the many raids of the refugees 
from Sandy Hook and the Pine robbers, etc. 

His son, Nicholas, married in 1822, Sarah Reynolds, and lived 
for some time at Penn Yann in New York. In 1830, he removed 
to Perth Amboy, New Jersey, where he lived the rest of his life.

Soitthwold, the English Home of Rev. John Yonges. 





By Lucy Dubois Akerly. 

Those of Anglo-Saxon lineage speak of 
England as the mother country. Perhaps 
this will explain the peculiarly close tie 
which binds the American to an older, more 
conventional, yet infinitely more picturesque, 
civilization than his own. 

Almost every foot of the British Isles has 
some association with the past, or as Ruskin 
would express it, " some lamp of memory." 

South wold, 103 miles from London, in the 
Hundred of Blything and County of Suffolk, 
England, is a place of great interest to many 
in this country, as having been the residence 
of Rev. John Yonges; and of his father, the 
Rev. Christopher Yonges, Vicar of Reydon 
and South wold. 

The Rev. John Yonges (Yongs, Young, 
Youngs), was one of the principal founders 
of the oldest town on Long Island, which he 
called Southold, after his former home, also giving the county 
which it was situated the English name of Suffolk. 

South wold belonged to the powerful Iceni, or Cenomagni, a 
British tribe, who, under Boadicea, were conquered by the 
Romans A. I). 62. Afterward it formed part of the kingdom of 
East Anglia, which though one of the least important divisions 
of the so-called Saxon Heptarchy, gave its name to all England.* 

From remains found in the cliffs the Danes are believed to 
have had a camp at South wold. 

It is styled in old records Suwald, Suwalda, Sudholda, South- 
wand, Southold, etc., and owes its name to a wood which no 
longer exists, called " Bovens " in the Domesday Book.\ 

It is an island at high tide, formed by the River Blythe, Buss 
Creek,! and the North Sea. The inhabited portion facing the 
ocean is on a bluff 25 to 30 feet high, parts of which bear the 
familiar names of Long island and New York Cliffs. 

According to the Domesday survey, io8i-'86, the sea line is 
now a mile further inland than at that time.

94. Southold, the English Home of Rev. John Yonges, [April, 

A fine bathing beach makes Southwold one of the most 
attractive of English watering places. The climate is unusually 
mild in winter and bracing in summer. Many of the beach 
pebbles are of agate and carnelian, relics of the glacial age.* 

On a summer day the joy of color makes this region a para- 
dise for artists. The surrounding marshes or meadows, with the 
flat country beyond, are wonderfully like Holland, or our own 
Long Island. Their rich green makes a fine setting for the 
town, which can be described as a symphony in reds and greys, 
with its noble church and stately light-house towering above it, 
while beyond stretches the unfathonable sea, lost at last in the 
horizon line of the soft, low, silvery cloud-flecked English sky. 

As one looks landward during the spring months there is a 
blaze of golden gorse visible, while in August the heather lends 
a not less beautiful purple glow to the landscape. 

The Domesday Book mentions Sudwalda as existing to feed 
the monks of Bury St. Edmunds, yielding them 25,000 herrings, 
as against 20,000 in the days of Edward the Confessor. 

A controversy having arisen as to the erection of a chapel 
there, it was decided in 1202 that the Cluniac Monastery, of 
Thetford, in right of their cell at Wangford, and as patrons of the 
church at Rissemere (Reydon), to which Southwold was a ham- 
let, should build a chapel on a site to be given by Bury, but that 
Thetford and its dependencies should have the sole jurisdiction 
over it, and that all christenings, marriages and burials should 
take place at Reydon. 

It is a source of deep regret that the earliest Parish Register 
of Reydon, now extant, dates only from 1712, thus depriving us 
of priceless genealogical lore. 

The first Southwold chapel was burnt aboiit 1422-32, the 
second was parochial, the baptisms, marriages, etc., to be cele- 
brated there, but until 175 1 it was a chapel of ease only, to be 
served by the Vicar of Reydon. 

The earliest mention of a burial-place at Southwold is of its 
enlargement, found in a deed dated Wangford, 13th Apl., 1458. 
Neither at Reydon nor Southwold churchyards are there any 
gravestones legible that ante-date 1700. 

The third church, dating from 1460, is still standing, and 
dedicated to St. Edmund, King and Martyr. It is of dressed flint 
and stone, wonderfully beautiful in tint, mellowed by the cen- 
turies that it has seen come and go. It was a pleasure to be one 
of its crowded congregation, and to visit its flourishing, admir- 
ably taught Sunday-schools. 

What is left of the interior is imposing, including, among 
other things, richly carved pews and stalls, a wooden Jack in 
armor, who formerly struck the hours (p. 93), and an exquisite 
rood-screen, with quaint painted figures. 

Col. Dowsing, a Vandal Parliamentarian, was appointed 
" Visitor of the Suffolk Churches " in 1643. Under the guise of 
religion he and his followers perpetrated every sacrilige here and

elsewhere in the neighborhood, destroying images, pictures, 
tombs and brasses, which to-day would be of untold value. 

The arms of the borough of South wold are, according to 
Burke, " Sable, two arrows in saltire enfiled with a ducal cor- 
onet, or, crest, a bust of a man couped at the breast, vested and 
regally crowned." 

Another coat has a dolphin in chief, and another in base, with 
the letters E. S. on either side. 

The arrows allude to the martyrdom of King Edmund. 

From wax impressions of two ancient maces at Soutbwold. 

In 1603 South wold was devastated by the plague, and in 1659 
a most disasterous fire occurred, from which the town has never 
fully recovered. 

In 1654 there were about 2,000 inhabitants, in 1750 only 666; 
in 1901 they numbered 2,782. 

The Parish Register begins in 1602; part of the first volume is 
in the copperplate handwriting of Rev. Christopher Yonges, who 
was instituted to the Vicarage of Reydon with South wold, 14 
Jan., 161 1. {Institution Books 0/ Norwich.)

Signature ol the Rev. Christopher Yonges, Parish Register, Southwold. 

g6 Southwohi, the English Home of Rev. John Yonges, [April, 

The late Mr. Charles B. Moore thought that " Christopher 
Yonges was probably educated at Oxford, graduated A. B. 156^, 
M. A. in 1566, licensed 4 July, incepted 4 July, and elected Chap- 
lain of Windsor, 6 Mch. 156^."* The proof of the statement 
does not appear. 

Vicar Christopher Yonges was buried 16 June, 1626, and his 
widow Margaret, 1 Nov. 1630. (Southiuold Parish Register.) 

A small, much worn brass, 14 J£ x 5 inches, in the chancel of 
St. Edmund's marks his grave, bearing the following inscription: 


" Here Lyeth interred y body of Mr. Christopher 


Yonges who depted this life y 14 day of Ivne 

anno Domini. 1626, 

A good man fvll of fayth was hee

And manie by his ministrie

"The will of William Yonges, of Lowestoft, 22 Juue, 1530, 
proved 7 Mch., 1530, names wife Margery. William Hocker, of 
Lowertoft, executor. (Arch. Suff. Ipswich, B. 10, L. 172.) " 

" The will of Christopher Home, of Aylesham, yeoman, 4 
Mch., 1602, proved 21 Apl., 1603. To be buried in the church- 
yard of Aylesham where my wife lyeth buried. Nephew Chris- 
topher Yonges, of Colby, the elder. His daughters tenements in

" The same will was proved in the Prerogative Court of Lon- 
don and registered in Book Harte J<p."\ 

These two wills are doubtless a clue to the ancestry of Vicar 
Christopher Yonges, whose sons, so far as known of them, were: 
Kdward, John, Joseph and Christopher, the latter at least being 
a native of the County of Norfolk. Therefore, it is not unreason- 
able to suppose that Christopher, John and William Yonges 
might be Rev. Christopher Yonges, of Southwold, and his two 
brothers, sons of Christopher Yonges, the elder, of Colby, Nor- 
folk, and grandsons of Johan Yonges, sister of Christopher

"The will of Margaret Younges, late wife of Christopher 
Younges, deceased, of Southwold, 27 Oct., 1630, proved 8 Jan., 
1630, leaves the house and land she dwells in to be divided 
amongst her six children, John, Joseph, Christopher, Mary, Mar- 
garet and Martha, according to her husband's will. Her two 
sons, John and Joseph, to be executors. (Arch. Suff. Ipswich, B. 
59. 1629-30. L. 349)"* 

The Vicar"s children, Edward and Elizabeth Yonges, were 
drowned with twenty-two others, on St. James' Day, 1616, and 
buried July 31st. f (Southwold Parish Register). 

Three of the children named in the wills of the Vicar and his 
wife were Rev. John Yonges, of Southold, L. I.; Christopher 
Yonges, of Wenham, t Mass., and Martha, wife of Thomas Moore, 
of Salem, Mass., and Southold, L. I. She was probably the 
youngest child, and was baptized at Southwold, Eng., 1 July, 1613. 
{Parish Register.) 

Mary, daughter of the Vicar, doubtless married William 
Browne, of Salem. Joseph Yonges probably married Margaret 
Warryn at .Southwold, or else the Vicar's daughter, Margaret, 
married a Joseph Yonges. 

The wdl of Christopher Yonges, of Wenham, Mass., dated 
19 :4 : 1647, the day of his death, entrusts his daughters, Sarah 
and Mary, to the care of his mother-in-law, naming her husband, 
his father-in-law, Mr. Richard Elvin, of Great Yarmouth, in our 
native county of Norfolk, England, (ante, p. 96). 

His son Christopher Yonges was to be given to Mr. John 
Phillips at Wrentham, Eng., and until the children can be sent 
to England they were to be cared for by the testator's two sisters, 
the wife of Joseph Yonge and the wife of Thomas Moor, of 

The inventory of Christopher Yonges was X51 : us. His 
wife, Priscella Elvin, died before him. (Essex Co., Mass., Wills. )$ 

The inventory of Capt. Joseph Yonges, of Southold, L. I., 
dated 15 Sept., 1658, amounted to ,£477: 09: 00. A legal document 
of Margaret, his widow, names her sons, Joseph, John, Gideon 
and Samuel. (Southold Town Rec., I, 438,69.) 

"Joseph Yonges and Margaret Warryn were married 1632, 
Feb. 5. Joseph, son of Joseph and Margaret Yonges, was bap- 
tized, 1633, Jan. 23. "John, son of Joseph and Margaret Yonges, 
baptized 1635. Mar. 10." (Southwold Parish Register.) 

The name of Thomas Moor or More is found at Southwold in 
1625, '32, '41, "44.

Daniel More, grocer, of Southwold, issued farthing tokens in 

From Thomas Moore, of Salem and Southold, descend a num- 
erous progency, among them the late Mr. Charles B. Moore, 
author of the admirable Indexes to Southold Genealogies. By 
tradition the said Thomas Moore was the son of a Norfolk clergy- 
man, probably Thomas Moore, Vicar of Strumpshaw.* 

To return to Rev. John Yonges, so well described by Rev. 
Dr. Whitaker.f he married 25 July, 1622, Joan Herrington, 
widow. Their children, John and Thomas, were baptized re- 
spectively 1623, Apl. 3, and 1625, May 1, at Southwold. \ Both 
are called grandsons in the will of Vicar Yonges and both came 
to Long Island. 

" 1613, Mch. 7, Robert Herrington married Johan Jentilman." 
" Robert, son of Robert and Joan Herrington, was bapt. 1616, 
Oct. 1." There is apparently no entry of the death of Robert 
Herrington in the Southwold Parish Register. 

" 1609, July, Thomas Jentillman was buried the 30 day. He 
lived above four score yeares in pfect sight and memorie, and in 
his flourishing time for building of shippes and many other 
commendable parts he continued in his place unmatchable." J 

" Thomas Gentleman lived to the advanced age of 98 years. 
He was born in Southwold in 15 11, and died in 1609, having been 
Bailiff in 1534, '72, '86, '96 and 1604, and gave the 'Composition 
Lings' seventy years unto four princes, viz.: King Edward, 
Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, and until the sixth year of our 
most gracious Sovereign King James the First, which comes to 
much more than one thousand pounds for one man of that town 
to pay the Government."! 

Tobias Gentleman, son of the above Thomas, was instru- 
mental in reviving and successfully establishing the Royal Fish- 
eries. He wrote a pamphlet entitled " England's Way to Win 
Wealth, and to Employ Ships and Mariners," dated 16 14. 

" Composition Lings " were those fish which the King's Ser- 
geant-Eater hath yearly out of every ship and bark, gratis, one 
hundred of the choicest and fairest Lings (from the Iceland ships), 
which are worth more than ten pounds the hundred, and they 
call them Composition Fish." (From T. Gentleman's pamphlet.) 

With the marriage of Joan Jentilman to Thomas Beaumont in 
1628, the name disappears from the Parish Register. 

If Joan Herrington descended from Thomas Jentilman she 
was probably his great-granddaughter. 

It is possible that Rev. John Yonges was married three times, 
for it is stated in the testimony of John Grover, of Beverly, 
Mass.; Sarah Chat well, of Salem, and Mary Gage, of Beverly, 
that Nicholas Woodbury, of Beverly, married Anna, whose 
maiden name was always understood to be Palgrave, and who

came from Great Yarmouth, England, having been brought to 
America by her father-in-law, Mr. John Yonge* 

"Anna Woodberry died 10 June, 1701, being aged about 
seventy-five years." (Beverly Records.) 

One of the Parish Registers at Great Yarmouth has the entry 
of the marriage of Richard Palgrave and Joan Harris, 24 Jan. 
1625-6.1 Anna, their daughter, was baptized 29 Oct., 1626. 

Richard Palgrave died 30 Mch., 1630, and Joan married 2d 
Rev. John Young, minister, of St. Margarett's, Suffolk, England, 
and he was 35 years of age in 1637 when they, with six children, 
removed to New England. J 

Thomas Harris was Bailiff at Yarmouth in 1581, and the South 
Gate in that town was sometimes called Harris Gate.g 

" Rev. John Yonge died 24 Feb., 167$, in his 74th year.|| 
(tombstone at Southold). Administration on his estate was 
granted to his widow, Mary, in 1675, he having left a non-cupa- 
tive will only.*! 

The will of Mary Youngs, "widow of John Youngs, sometime 
minister of this town," dated 5 Nov., 1978, names John Youngs, 
eldest son of my said husband, Benjamin Youngs, my eldest son. 
(by my last husband), Christopher Youngs, son of my husband 
He was Mary's son also. Thomas Youngs, Sarah Youngs, Mary 
Youngs, my daughter, and Mary Youngs, my grandchild. Ed- 
ward Pattey is to have a sheep as a full portion with what he 
already hath. (Southold Town Rec, II, 17.). 

" The will of Thomas Warren, of Southwold, Eng., merchant, 
4 Mch., 1641, proved 13 Sept., 1645, mentions the children of his 
daughter Mary, wife of John Youngs, now in New England, 
Mary Gardiner, his said daughter's daughter, and his grandson, 
Benjamin Youngs, also his daughter Margaret, wife of Joseph 
Youngs, sons Thomas and George Warren, deceased son Robert 
Warren, daughter Deborah, and son-in-law Simon Barnard. 
(Arch Suff., Ipswich. Orig. Wills, 1645, No. 20.)"** 

Thomas Warren was Baliff of Southwold 1614, '20, '27, '33 
and ' 3 8.ft 

It has been supposed that the last wife of Rev. John Yonges 
was a widow, Petty, from the bequest to Edward Pattey, but it 
would seem as if her first husband had been named Gardiner. 
Mary Gardiner, her daughter, may have been ordinarily known 
by the surname of her step-father, Yonges, or she may have 
married her step-brother, Col. John Yonges. 

Petty and Gardiner are both well known Long Island names. 
Petty, or Pettie, occurs frequently in the Southwold Parish Reg- 
ister in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The Dean of Norwich, Eng., in 1573, was George Gardiner, 
D. D., son of George Gardiner, Gent., of the Lancashire family 
of that name. Their arms, granted 24 Apl., 1577, were: " Sable,

Viz: — Patience Thacher, Daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher, 

of Weymouth and Boston, Mass., and William Kemp, 

2D, Son of William Kemp, ist, of Duxbury, Mass. 

By Iohn R. Totten. N. Y. G. and B. Soc. 

Savages Gen. Die., Vol. Ill, p. 8, states, William Kemp, of Dux- 
burv, a passenger on the ship James, left Southampton, England 
m April, 1635 and arrived in Boston June 3rd, 1635; he had a son 
William, of Duxbury, who married Patience, daughter of Rev. 
Thomas Thacher. The same authority, Vol. IV, p. 273, mentions 
Patience Thacher, daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher, of Wey- 
mouth, Mass. Davis' Landmarks of Plymouth, Mass., Part II, 
p. 259, states, Patience Thacher, daughter of Rev. Thomas 
Thacher, married William Kemp. Winsor's History of Dux- 
bury, Mass., p. 179, note, states, Rev. Thomas Thacher had also a 
daughter Patience, who married William Kemp, 2d, of Duxbury; 
and on p. 273, states, William Kemp, ist, of Duxbury, married Eliz- 
abeth : his inventory was taken September 23, 1641. Estate

^150; he had land at Beaver Pond, South River and Namassa- 
keeset; he had a son, William Kemp, 2nd, who married Patience 
Thacher,(?) (note the interrogation point), which William Kemp 
2d, had a daughter (Patience Kemp) who married Samuel Sea- 
bury. D. W. Allen's Thacher Genealogy, page 8, states, Patience 
Thacher, daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher, of Weymouth and 
Boston, Mass., married William Kemp. And various family 
genealogies, quoting from antecedent authorities, have per- 
petuated this error, which has remained without specific refuta- 
tion until this date. 

It is the object of this article to establish that Patience 
Thacher, daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher, never existed in the 
flesh: and also to establish that William Kemp, 2d, likewise never 
existed in the flesh; or if he did, that he never married a Patience 
Thacher, the hypothetical daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher. 

Rev. Ralph Partridge arrived in this country November 17th, 
1636 (Items of Ancestry, p. 63); was made minister of Duxbury, 
Mass., lived there and died there in that capacity. He made his 
will Sept. 20th, 1655; which will was probated May 4th, 1658, and 
in that will he mentions his daughter Elizabeth, her 2nd son, 
Ralph Thacher, her eldest daughter, Patience Kemp, and her 
youngest son, Peter Thacher. 

All authorities agree that Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. Ralph 
Partridge, married, May n, 1643, Rev. Thomas Thacher, of Wey- 
mouth, Mass., then, and subsequently of Boston, Mass. But, if 
Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. Ralph Partridge, married Rev. 
Thomas Thacher May nth, 1643, then her eldest child by this 
marriage, in the ordinary course of nature, could not possibly 
have been born before late in 1643, or early in 1644; probably in 
January, 1644; this child would then, at the date (Sept. 20th, 
1655) of her grandfather, Rev. Ralph Partridge's will, have been 
but eleven (11) years and eight (8) months old, an age too young 
for her (if a girl) to have married previous to the date of the will 
and to have changed her name from Thacher to Kemp. How 
does it happen then, that in her grandfather's will she (the 
eldest daughter of the Rev. Ralph Partridge's daughter Eliza- 
beth Partridge) is called Patience Kemp and not Patience Thacher? 
Giving her the benefit of all natural conditions and permitting 
her to be the eldest child as well as the eldest daughter of Eliza- 
beth Partridge and Rev. Thomas Thacher, and assuming her of 
course to have been born in wedlock, as undoubtedly she was, then 
January, 1644, approximately, would be her earliest date of birth, 
and her age at the date of Rev. Ralph Partridge's will would, 
as above stated, be but eleven (11) years and eight (8) months, 
an age too young for her to have previously married and changed 
her name from Thacher to Kemp. The evident conclusion is 
that Elizabeth Partridge, daughter of Rev. Ralph Partridge, 
must have been married previous to her marriage with Rev. 
Thomas Thacher, and she must have had a daughter by this first 
marriage, which daughter, at the date (September 20th, 1655) of 
her grandfather Ralph Patridge's will, bore the name of Patience 

i 'i I ] 77/e Laying of Two Genealogical Ghosts. 103 

How then could her name at that date be Patience Kemp? 
We answer, either her father, Elizabeth Partridge's first hus- 
band, may have been named Kemp, or she may have been the 
daughter of Elizabeth Partridge by a first husband (surname 
unknown) and have been old enough at the date (September 
20th, 1655) of her grandfather's will to have been married to 
one named Kemp. 

Let us now investigate this matter from the standpoint of 
the record of William Kemp, 1st. William Kemp, 1st resided at 
Duxbury, Mass. Winsor's History of Duxbury states that he 
married Elizabeth (maiden surname not given). His inven- 
tory was taken September 23rd, 1641. Estate ^150. He had 
land at Beaver Pond, South River and Namassakeeset, and had a 
son William, 2nd, who married Patience Thacher (?) (note the 
interrogation point as indicating doubt on Winsor's part as to 
the authenticity of this last statement). Winsor on same page 
states that this William Kemp, 2nd, had a daughter by this Pa- 
tience Thacher (?), which daughter married Samuel Seabury. 
Notice (1) William Kemp, 1st, wife's Christian name was Eliza- 
beth , maiden surname not given. Why could it not have been 

Partridge? (2) William Kemp, ist, died previous to September 

23rd, 164 1, and therefore his widow, Elizabeth , was on May 

11th, 1643, free to contract a second marriage. Why could she 
not have been Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. Ralph Partridge, who 
on May 11, 1643, did marry Rev. Thomas Thacher. 

But if the first William Kemp had a son William Kemp, 2nd, 
who married a Patience Thacher, who was the Patience Thacher 
that he married ? She must have been the daughter of Rev- 
Thomas Thacher by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. Ralph 
Partridge, as common acceptance by the early authorities has 
established it. But by the course of reasoning previously em- 
ployed, we see that in that case she could not have been born 
before January, 1644; and that on September 20th, 1655 (the date 
of her grandfather's will) at the age of eleven years and eight 
months, she was known as Patience Kemp. Then if her name 
at that date was Patience Kemp, because she had previously mar- 
ried William Kemp, 2d, she must have married him before she 
was 11 years and eight months old, a manifest improbability. 

The inevitable conclusion from the above is that William 
Kemp, ist, had no son William Kemp, 2nd, who married a Patience 
Thacher, and in all probability he had no son William Kemp, 
2nd, whatever; and the evident conclusion is that William Kemp, 
ist, himself was the father of the Patience Kemp who is men- 
tioned in the will of the Rev. Ralph Partridge. For William 
Kemp, ist married Elizabeth , maiden surname not specific- 
ally given, but by strong circumstantial and inferential evidence 
she was Elizabeth Partridge, daughter of Rev. Ralph Partridge. 
William Kemp, ist, died previous to September 23rd, 1641, after 
a short married career, leaving one child, a daughter, Patience 
Kemp, named after her maternal grandmother, wife of Rev. 
Ralph Partridge, whose Christian name was as a matter of record 
Patience. Elizabeth Partridge- Kemp, widow of William Kemp, 

104 The Laying of Two Genealogical Ghosts. [April, 

ist, and having one child, Patience Kemp, married a second time, 
May nth, 1643, Rev. Thomas Thacher; and her daughter, Pa- 
tience Kemp, became the step-daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher. 
This child was probably but an infant at the time of her mother's 
second marriage and was brought up and lived until she married 
in her stepfather's family, and thus may have become known as 
Patience Thacher, whereas in reality she was Patience Kemp. 
These circumstances have aided in establishing the long existing 
confusion of calling her Patience Thacher; and have forced gen- 
ealogists to summon into existence a mythical second William 
Kemp to whom to marry her, in order to provide parents for a 
Patience Kemp (whose existence they could not otherwise account 
for), who was by them supposed to have subsequently become 
the wife of Samuel Seabury of Duxbury. All of this confusion is 
due to the absence of specific record showing that Elizabeth Par- 
tridge was first married to William Kemp, ist, who shortly there- 
after died leaving a daughter, Patience Kemp. 

Let us now investigate the matter from the Seabury stand- 

From Winsor's Duxbury, p. 305, we have the following: 
Samuel Seabury was born in Boston, December 10th, 1640; he 
removed to Duxbury, Mass., and was a physician. He was mar- 
ried first at Weymouth, Mass., on December 9th (or 16th), 1660, 
to Patience Kemp, who died October 29th, 1676. He was mar- 
ried second on April 4th, 1677, to Martha Pabodie. He died 
August 5th, 1681. He had by first and second wives, amongst 
other children, a son John and a daughter Hannah, whose names 
are here specifically mentioned in connection with subject matter 
to be referred to later. 

Notice the fact that Patience Kemp, his first wife, was married 
at Weymouth, Mass., the home at that time (1660) of Rev. Thomas 
Thacher and Elizabeth Partridge his wife; she was undoubtedly 
the stepdaughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher, and child of Eliza- 
beth Partridge by her first husband William Kemp. Notice also 
the date of her marriage (1660) to Samuel Seabury, which if she 
was, as I state, the daughter of William Kemp, ist, would make 
her date of birth not later than early in 1642 (even allowing her 
to be posthumous) as her father's inventory was taken September 
23rd, 1641. She would then in 1660 have been at a proper age 
for marriage and at the then prevailing age of marriage, about 
18 years old. 

Let us now see what light is thrown on this controversy by 
an examination of the Plymouth Colony Records, viz : — April 
2nd, 1640, John Howland deeds to William Kemp 85 acres of 
land. (Vol. XII, p. 56.) April 2nd, 1640, John Handmore deeds 
to William Kemp 10 acres of land. (Vol. XII, p. 57.) April 2nd, 
1640, John Shaw deeds to William Kemp 2 1-2 acres of land. (Vol. 
XII, p, 57.) December 30th, 1640, Comfort Starr deeds to John 
Maynard land lying between land of Mr. William Kemp and that 
of Mr. George Partrich. (Vol. XII, p. 66.) November 2nd, 1641, 
at a Court of Assistants at Plymouth, Mass., letters of adminis- 
tration granted to Mrs. Elizabeth Kemp to administer upon all 

1904.] The Laying of Two Genealogical Gliosis. 105 

goods, cattells, and debt which William Kemp, her late husband 
died possessed, or were due and appertaining unto him at the time 
of his decease; provided she exhibit upon oath a true inventory 
thereof with all convenient speed, or when she shall be there- 
unto required by the Court. (Vol. II, p. 27.) April 5th, 1642, at 
a Court of Assistants, Plymouth, Mass, Mrs. Elizabeth Kemp 
exhibited upon oath an inventory ut all of her husband's goo 
debts and cattells to this Court. (Vol. 2, p. 37.) May 7th, 1642, 
Robert Hicks deeds for £j to William Brett 7 acres of upland 
lying in the nook towards the sea next to the land of Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Kemp. (Vol. XII, p. 80.) June 23rd, 1643, William Brett tor 
_£i2 deeds to Mr. Ralph Partridge the above described land, 
transferred Mav 7th, 1642 from Robert Hicks to William Brett. 
(Vol. XII, p. 80.) 

The above extracts from the Plymouth Colony Records estab- 
lish the fact that William Kemp, 1st, was living December 30th, 
1640, and that he died previous to November 2nd, 1641; and that 
his widow's Christian name was Elizabeth. By the transfer of 
property June 23rd, 1643, from William Brett to Mr. Ralph Par- 
tridge we inferentially gather the fact that Rev. Ralph Partridge 
acquired the land to round out the property of Mrs. Elizabeth 
Kemp whose land it adjoined, and to whom at his death he left 
most all of his property except this specific piece of land which 
he left to her second son Ralph Thacher. The intimate relation 
between the names Kemp and Partridge, even at this early date, 
June 23rd, 1643, ' s thus established. 

Again to return to the Plymouth Colony Records : July 7th, 
1674, at a Court of His Majesty at Plymouth, Mass., " Liberty is 
granted unto Mr. Samuel Saberry of Duxbury, to look out for 
land to accommodate him in reference to several former grants 
made by the Court to Mr. William Kemp deceased, which the 
said Mr. Kemp never had, nor any for him; and was disappointed 
of some parcells of land assigned to him, and thereby, he having 
an interest therein, as appears by the records of this Court . if 
therefore, the said Mr Saberry, his son-in-law, can find any lands 
as yet undisposed of, he is to have a competent accommodation 
of lands out of the same." (Vol. V, p. 150.) 

From the above we see that a William Kemp had certain 
lands assigned to him by the town of Duxbury, which allotment 
of land was confirmed by the Court at Plymouth, but which lands 
were never during his lifetime fully acquired by him. The ques- 
tion then arises which William Kemp this was. In point of fact 
there is but one William Kemp ever mentioned in the Plymouth 
Colony Records, namely, the William Kemp, 1st, whose wife 
Elizabeth was granted letters of administration Novem- 
ber 2nd, 1641. In any subsequent reference to William Kemp in 
the records, he is alwas referred to as deceased. The lands in 
question in the above order of the Court are undoubtedly the 
meadow lands which were assigned in connection with the Na- 
massakeeset up-land grant. The up-land was allotted to Willi mi 
Kemp, 1st, but probably due to death soon thereafter, the 
meadow land appertaining thereto failed to be allotted, and his 

106 The Laying of Two Genealogical Ghosts. [April, 

widow soon thereafter removing with her second husband to 
Weymouth, the claim thereto had lain dormant until revived by- 
Samuel Saberry, who married the daughter of William Kemp, ist, 
and then acquired an interest in the claim, and saw fit to push it, 
he living at the time in Duxbury, in which town the lands in 
dispute were situated. 

Notice at this point that on October 29th, 1676, Patience 
Kemp, wife of Samuel Saberry, died. And then we have from 
the Plymouth Colony Records, July 7th, 1682, at a Court of his 
Majesty at Plymouth, Mass.: "The Court allows and approves 
Mr. Rodolphus Thacher to be guardian unto two of Mr. Samuel 
Saberry 's children, viz.: Hannah and John Saberry." (Vol. VI, 
p. 91.) Mr. Samuel Saberry, himself, died August 5th, 1681, leav- 
ing as his widow his second wife, Martha Pabodie. What more 
natural then than to have Mr. Rodolphus Thacher (a resident of 
Duxbury) and a half brother of Patience Kemp, the first wife of 
Samuel Saberry, appointed a guardian of these two children, in 
order to safeguard the interests of the children inherited by them 
from William Kemp, ist, through Patience Kemp, his daughter 
(the first wife of Samuel Saberry). who was the mother of one of 
the children, viz.: Hannah Saberry, born July 7th, 1668. That he 
Rodolphus Thacher at once acted as guardian in their interests 
in this very matter is seen from the following extract from the 
records of the same Court, July 7th, 1682, at a Court of his 
Majesty at Plymouth Mass.: "At this Court Mr. Ralph Thacher" 
(Rodolphus Thacher and Ralph Thacher were one and the same 
persons, he writing his name both ways). " came into the Court 
and petitioned the Court to take into their consideration a grant 
of land made unto Mr. William Kemp, lying within the town of 
Duxbury, about Namassakeesett, with meadow convenient to be 
laid forth unto the same, which meadow was never layed out 
according to Court order, neither what was done about the laying 
out of it to be found upon the records, nor in any other writing. 
The Court does therefore order the three men appointed by the 
town of Duxbury to lay out the said lands and run the ranges, 
viz.: Ensign John Tracey, John Soule, and William Paybody to 
repair to the said place and lay out the said meadow according 
to that proportion the said land and meadows were ordered to 
be laid out by the town of Duxbury at the first; that so the 
upland of the said William Kemp may be accommodated accord- 
ing to Court order." (Vol. VI, pp. 92-93 ) 

From all of the above authorities as quoted it seems that we 
may unquestionably regard as established the following conclu- 
sions viz.: 

(1). Rev. Thomas Thacher and Elizabeth Partridge, his wife, 
had no daughter, Patience Thacher. 

(2). Elizabeth Partridge, daughter of Rev. Ralph Partridge, 
married first William Kemp, by whom she had a daughter, 
Patience Kemp, born previous to May nth, 1643. William Kemp 
died previous to September 23, 1641, and hence subsequent to 
this date his widow was free to contract a second marriage; 
which, in fact, she did, by marrying on May nth, 1643, Rev. 

1 904.] Amenta, .V. K, Church Records. 107 

Thomas Thacher, who subsequeutly, January 2d, 1644-5, became 
the minister at Weymouth, Mass., and remained there in that 
capacity until subsequent to the death, on June 2d, 1664, of Eliza- 
beth Partridge, his wife. Rev. Thomas Thacher was born in 
England May 1st, 1620, and in 1643 was presumably about the 
same age as Elizabeth Partridge, who, like himself, was born in 
England (date of birth unknown), and came to this country 
November 17th, 1636, with her father. Elizabeth Partridge, soon 
after her coming to this country, married first William Kemp, 
who had reached this country, previous to her arrival, June 3d, 
1635, on the ship James. Soon after his marriage William Kemp 
died, leaving but one child, Patience Kemp, and not leaving a 
son, William Kemp, 2d, who never in reality existed at all. Eliza- 
beth Partridge-Kemp, widow af the only William Kemp, shortly 
after her first husband's death, married on May 11th, 1643, Rev. 
Thomas Thacher, and her daughter by her first husband, Patience 
Kemp, became the step-daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher, and 
was received into his family, and brought up by him, and married 
from his home in Weymouth, Mass., on December 9th (or i6th), 
1660, to Samuel Saberry (Seabury), of Duxbury, Mass. 

(3). Samuel Seabury did not marry Patience Kemp, daughter 
of William Kemp, 2d, (who never existed in the flesh), and of 
Patience Thacher (who also never existed), but married Patience 
Kemp, daughter of William Kemp, 1st, (the only William Kemp), 
and Elizabeth Partridge, his wife, he being her first hasband. 

(4). William Kemp, 2d, and Patience Thacher are two myth- 
ical individuals, summoned into existence by early genealogists, 
in order that by their marriage they could give birth to a Pati- 
ence Kemp, who was subsequently to marry Samuel Seabury. It 
was known beyond doubt that Samuel Seabury did marry a 
Patience Kemp, and so these hypothetical parents were manu- 
factured for her. 

With these final remarks we relegate Patience Thacher, 
daughter of Rev. Thomas Thacher and Elizabeth Partridge, and 
William Kemp, 2d, son of William Kemp, 1st, and Elizabeth 

, his wife, back to the realms of shade whence they 

were summoned by those who carelessly failed to examine the

Solomon and Susannah Lathrop, of Tolland, Conn. When 16 
years old he removed with his father from Colchester to Elling- 
ton, Conn., and March 11, 1754, his father deeded to him a house 
and farm there. In 1767, he removed to Ludlow, Mass., then a 
part of Springfield, where he was one of the pioneers, and a lead- 
ing man in religious and public affairs, and a public official in 
various capacities. His last years were spent with his youngest 
son, Benjamin. His children, except the three youngest, were 
born in Ellington, Conn. Children: 

86 i. Elisha, 7 b. April 8, 1754; m. (1) Rebecca Waterman; m.

lington, and d. in Stafford, Conn. 
78. David' Fuller, ( Young,'' Matthew," Samuel,' Samuel,' Ed- 
ward'), b. 1733, in Colchester, Conn., bap. there April 29, 1734; 
d. in East Haddam, Sept. 25, 1804, aged 72 years. A newspaper 
of the period says that the immediate cause of his death was " a 
fall from his cart." He m. April 17, 1759, Mrs. Lois (Hubbard) 
Fuller, widow of Jabez", (Thomas', John 3 Samuel', Edward') Ful- 
ler of East Haddam, and dau. of John and Lois (Clark) Hubbard 
of Middle Haddam. She was born Dec. 13, 1730, in Middletown, 
Conn.; d. May 29, 1792, at East Haddam, aged 62 years. 

David Fuller removed in boyhood from Colchester to Elling- 
ton parish, then in the town of Windsor, and continued to live 
there until about the time of his marriage, when he settled upon 
the farm which had belonged to Mrs. Fuller's first husband. 
This farm was purchased from Mrs. Fuller's heirs by her son 
Jabez' Fuller, and has remained in the Fuller family until recent- 
ly, (1896). David Fuller was not an owner of real estate in East 
Haddam, but Windsor deeds show him to have been well pro- 
vided with lands in that town. One deed (vol. 14, p. 201), is 
especially important. It reads : "Young Fuller of Windsor, for 
the love and good will that I bare to my son David Fuller, for- 
merly of Windsor aforesaid, now living at East Haddam, two 
pieces of land in the parish of Ellington, one half my dwelling 

1904.] Edward Fuller and His Descendants. I I 5 

house and barn." This deed is dated March 5, 1759, and was 
acknowledged in Colchester in presence of Caleb and Brock way 
Beebe, and recorded at Windsor, April 27, 1763. It looks as it 
this deed was given with the expectation that David the son 
would settle on his father's farm in Ellington. He did not do so, 
but remained in East Haddam, as aforesaid. David Fuller was 
appointed April 30, 1759, guardian to Diademia and Beulah Ful- 
ler, the two children of his wife by her first husband. The births 
of the children of David and Lois Fuller are not recorded in the 
Bast Haddam town records, but we have their baptisms from the 
Church records as follows : 

Children of David" and Lois Fuller, baptized at East Haddam:

Deming and resided at Shelby Center, N. Y. What 
became of Mrs. Beulah Whittlesey I have not learned.

present writer) and two others who died young. All 
the children married and had numerous descendents 
in Connecticut,

vi. Olive, bap. Nov, 22, 1772; m. and had a family.

ward' 1 ), b. 1735 XTl Colchester, Conn.; bap. there Aug. 17, 1735; 
d. Aug. 20, 1815, aged 80, at Hanover. N. H. In 1758 he grad- 
uated from Yale College, receiving the degree of A. M. in 1762. 
He was licensed to preach by the Hartford South Association 
Feb. 5, 1760, when he is described as "of Windsor, now residing 
at Andover." Oct. 28, 1762 he married Hannah Weld, the 
seventh daughter in a family of fifteen children of the Rev. 
Habijah (Harvard, 1723) and Mary (Fox) Weld of Attleborough, 
Mass., and sister of the wife of Rev. Oliver Noble (Yale 1757) 
pastor of the church at Coventry, Ct. Caleb Fuller seems never 
to have been a settled pastor, though doubtless he often preached 
as a supply, since manuscript sermons of his are now in posses- 
sion of his descendants. From 1770 to 1777 he resided in East 
Windsor, Conn., removing thence to Middletown, Conn., and from 
Middletown in 1790 to Hanover, N. H., perhaps because he 
desired to educate his son at Dartmouth College. At Hanover 
he was Deacon of the College Church. He was a man of earnest

brother Daniel being in the same class. He became a physician 
of high standing. During the Revolution he served as army 
surgeon with a captain's rank. His case of surgical instruments 
used at that time, are still preserved by his descendants. That 
he was an army surgeon is the family tradition, but I have been 
utterly unable to verify it from any official source. Prof. Dexter 
thinks it doubtful. Children :

Contributed by Lothrop Withington, London. 

It is with much pleasure that I hope to contribute from time 
to time to the Record these Gleanings from the English archives 
concerning New York families. They are partly suggested by 
the unpublished collections of Mr. Henry Fitzgilbert Waters, 
now in my care, and partly from my own gatherings in the past, 
and to these skeleton references which I fill in for publication I 
hope also to add much quite new notes in the future as I come 
across New York matter in my searches. This work is on sim- 
ilar lines to my contributions to various other historical publi- 
cations of our original Colonies. For a particular account of the 
work of Mr. Waters and myself here in England see the Virginia 
Historical Magazine for January, 1903, page 291. The notes of 
Mr. Waters, not elsewhere printed, are being edited by me for 
the Genealogical Quarterly Magazine. It has seemed to me how- 
ever, most appropriate for the notes of Mr. Waters specially re- 
ferring to our early Colonies to be issued where they are of most 
interest. This plan enables me to add as much as possible from 
our own work.

[This interesting and important will may serve to connect the 
scattered branches of the romantic wandering Macky or Mackay 
family, especially between Scotland and Ireland. Many de- 
scendants of the Irish branch are found in New York and Penn- 
sylvania. The Hon. George Macky was a younger son of the 3d 
Baron Reay and father of the 8th Baron, ancestor of the present 
Lord Reay. General Alexander Mackay or Macky was a young- 
er brother of George. Ebenezer Forrest, the jovial Beefstaker, 
was author of a well known book illustrated by Hogarth. — L. W.]

Ediloral, Obituary. [April 


Like every other magazine the Record wishes to increase its circulation; 
yet unlike many others its motives are almost entirely unselfish. There are no 
salaries to be advanced, and any surplus which might attend an increase of 
circulation is pledged to be used in the enlargement of the periodical. There 
remains, accordingly, on the side of selfish considerations, only the satisfac- 
tion of seeing the magazine prosper. Why should not the members of the 
Publication Committee covet this gratification? We wish that this personal 
appeal could be heeded by those who are members of our genealogical 
society, and by all others who are able to appreciate the work which the 
Record is doing. 

It is evident that such a periodical as this must have a restrictive field and 
can appeal for subscribers only to the cultured, the public-spirited and the 
substantial, classes. As the spirit of commercialism increases and the popu- 
lation becomes more and more hoterogeneous, it devolves upon these classes 
to lend increasing support to the maintenance of the things which foster the 
spirit of patriotism and the higher elements of civilization. Of these the study 
of genealogy and biography, as well as the preservation of the records of fam- 
ilies and individuals, are not the least important, and these are the objects 
which this magazine seeks to promote. The popular periodicals are business 
enterprises whose mission is to entertain, and readers subscribe to them in 
order to be entertained. But the mission of the Record is not a commercial 
one; it does not aim to amuse, and so must gather its subscribers from those 
who do not seek to be amused, but who support it either for the sake of the in- 
formation it contains, or from sympathy with its mission. 

The members of the Publication Committee, who serve entirely without 
compensation, simply ask in return subscriptions from those who are interested 
in the matter contained in the Record and from those who are in sympathy

years secretary and general manager of the Evangelical Knowledge Society 
and editor of the Parish Visitor, and was elected Bishop of Kansas, but de- 
clined the office. 

Mrs. Dyer was a woman of strong literary tastes and her acquaintance 
with the ladies of the Episcopal Church was extensive. Her sympathies were 
specially drawn in the direction of her eminent husband's activities, and the 
aid which she afforded him was considerable. She was a charter member of 
the Ladies Christian Union, founded in 185 1, one of the first societies in New 
York to aid self-supporting women. She was also a life member of the New 
York Genealogical and Biographical Society and a member of the New York

Ketcham, William Ezra, for fourteen years a member of this Society, 
died December 17, 1903, at Ins residence at Yonkers, N. Y., aged sixt) -six 
years. He was burn Feb. 19, 1837, in New York City, and was the son of Ezra

140 Obituary. [April, 

Whitney, William Collins, life member of this Society, died Feb. 2, 
1904, at his residence, 871 Fifth Avenue, New York City, aged sixty-two years. 
He was born July 5, 1841, at Conway, Franklin County, Mass., and was the son 
of Gen. James Scollay Whitney and Laurinda Collins, daughter of William 
Collins. His father was one of the most prominent Democrats of Massachu- 
setts ; was Superintendent of the Springfield Armory under President Pierce, 
and Collector of the Port of Boston under President Buchanan, and a successful 
man of affairs. His grandfather, Stephen Whitney, of Conway, Mass., was 
the son of Josiah Whitney and grandson of Gen. Josiah Whitney, of Harvard, 
Mass., a colonel in the Revolutionary army. The latter was the fifth in 
descent ( Richard, Richard, Richard, John) from John Whitney who came from 
London in 1635 to Watertown, Mass., where he was selectman, town clerk and 
a man of property. On his mother's side he was descended from Governor 
William Bradford, of Plymouth Colony. 

Mr. Whitney prepared for college at Williston Seminary, Easthampton, 
Mass.; was graduated from Yale in 1863 and from the Harvard Law School in 
1865. The same year he came to New York and entered the law office of 
Abraham R. Lawrence, afterward Judge of the Supreme Court. The Tweed 
ring was then in control of the city and Mr. Whitney joined the forces which 
were fighting it. In 1871, together with Peter B. Olney, Henry Havemeyer and 
others, he founded the Young Men's Democratic Club of New York, whose 
members attracted the attention of Samuel J. Tilden and became famous as his 
"boys." He was one of the organizers and leaders of the County Democracy, 
and in 1874 actively engaged in the campaign which resulted in the election of 
Mr. Tilden as Governor of the State and Wm. H. Wickham as Mayor of the 
City of New York. The latter appointed Mr. Whitney to the responsible 
office of Corporation Counsel. It was in this position that he first exhibited 
that remarkable ability which brought him later such high honors. He found 
the office demoralized and inefficient. The city's interests were ill-defended 
and suits were pending involving fifteen or twenty millions of dollars. He 
called about him a group of young men and inspired them with his own 
example. System succeeded disorder ; suits were ably and successfully tried, 
and the city was saved many millions. 

Returning in 1882 to private practice Mr. Whitney became counsel to a 
number of corporations. But his interest in politics was as keen as ever and he 
threw himself with his characteristic vigor and skill for organization into the 
Blaine-Cleveland campaign of 1884. The day after President Cleveland's 
inauguration he was called into the cabinet as Secretary of the Navy. Here 
his genius for the management of great enterprises found an adequate field 
and showed to signal advantage. The navy of the United States at that period 
was about equal to that of Portugal. Except for the Chicago, the Atlanta and 
the Dolphin, it was merely a collection of antiquated ships. When he left the 
office in 1889 thirteen modern ships of war had been built and nine others were 
under construction. The new navy was an accomplished fact and the work 
for its betterment then begun has never ceased. 

His term of office having expired Mr. Whitney returned to New York to 
carry out a plan which he had formed for uniting the several surface railroads 
of that city. The cars were then drawn by horses. Acquiring control of many 
independent lines he consolidated them together, forming the corporation 
known as the Metropolitan Street Railway Company. In 1892 there was 
another Presidential election and Mr. Whitney, though himself the choice of 
many influential Democrats, devoted himself with ardor to the fortunes of his 
former chief. It was largely due to his skill and influence that Mr. Cleveland 
received the nomination and was elected President for a second term. In 1896 
he went to the Democratic convention at Chicago as a delegate and led the 
unsuccessful fight to maintain the gold standard, but Mr. Bryan was nominated 
upon a silver platform. When asked whether he would support the ticket 
nominated, Mr. Whitney boldly replied: "There are no possible conditions or 
circumstances that would induce me to vote for it, or assist it." He was never 
afterward active in public affairs. For the last three years of his life he lived 
retired from business as far as possible, enjoying his well earned leisure. His 
sudden and untimely death caused universal sorrow, and called forth unusual 
expressions of grief and words of praise from bis fellow-countrymen.

bers. 10 Members died during the year of whom 3 were Life Members. 

Seven meetings have been held at which interesting papers were read and 
the attendance has as a rule been both large and satisfactory. 

The papers read have also been unusually interesting. These meetings 
are designed for the entertainment of the Members and their friends, rather 
than for discussion of topics relevant to the work of this Society. 

In lanuary, Hon. Isaac Townsend Smith read a paper on " Capt. John 
Underbill and Marquis Townsend: their place in History."

rowed temporarily on a note to complete the needed sum. 

The Treasurer, Mr. Gibson, reported the net assets of the Society, $59,- 
944.51, being an increase over the preceeding year of $2,504.34. Cash balance 
on hand Jan. 1, 1904, $107.81. Receipts from Annual Dues, $1,535.00, and from

number of books, pamphlets and charts is now 11,450. 1573 persons visited 
the Library during the year. Reference was made to the resignation of the 
Assistant Librarian, Mrs. Manning, and the securing of the services of Mrs. 
F. E. Youngs in her place. 

The report of the Historian, Dr. William Gray Schauffler called particular 
attention to important and valuable contributions received from Dr. William 
Austin Macy, of Willard, N. Y. 

The Necrologist, Dr. Dwight, read appropriate obituary notices of the fol- 
lowing persons: Mrs. Emily Warren Roebling, Mrs. Mary Wright Wooton, 
Edward Herbert Noyes, Daniel Hoagland Carpenter, Sylvanus Jenkins Macy, 
George West Van Siclen, William Earl Dodge, John Gelston Floyd, Andrew 
Haswell Green, David Bradley Lee, Mrs. Cornelia C. Joy Dyer and Rev. Wil- 
liam Ezra Ketcham. 

The report of the Registrar of Pedigrees, Mr. Fitch, stated that 19 pedi- 
grees had been handed in and urged that all members who had not filed 
records should do so, or if already published, indicate where their pedigrees 
may be found. 

The Executive Committee, Mr. George Austin Morrison, Jr., Chairman, 
reported the general condition of the property improved, the building kept in 
good repair and a net gain in rentals over 1002 of $204.50. The sales of the 
Dutch Church Baptismal Records have reached a very gratifying amount. It 
was suggested that $500.00 be appropriated annually for desirable acquisitions 
to the Library as soon as the Society shall be free from debt. Also that the 
question of increasing the membership should receive serious consideration 
and that strong and earnest efforts should be made in this direction in order to 
further advance the good work of the Society. 

The Publication Committee, Dr. Dwight, Chairman, reported that the 
Record has been so enlarged that its yearly issue now numbers 338 instead of 
283 pages; also called attention to interesting and important features of the 
Record during 1903. It was stated that the Recordhad not quite paid for itself, 
as in 1902, it having cost $1,306.00 to print and the receipts having been $770.00 
from subscriptions and $392.00 from back numbers, leaving a deficit of $143.00; 
that the increase of subscription price from $2.00 to S3.00 had been more than 
offset by the increased cost of the larger publication, but that with determined 
efforts to increase the list of subscribers this most important and advantageous 
work of the Society could be financially successful. 

At a meeting of the Board of Trustees held Jan. 12th, 1904, the following 
)tificers and committees were elected: 

President, Thomas Grier Evans. 

First Vice-President, Clarence Winthrop Bowen.

correct one mistake however, regarding my father's ancestry — (he was not al- 
together of Holland descent). His grandmother was Barbara Wood, a lineal 
descendant of John Jenny and Sarah Carey (Pilgrims strictlv), who were mar- 
ried at Leyden, Nov. nth, 1614, and came to Plymouth, Mass., in the Little 
James, 1623. Dr. Cole was married in 1844, not 1884.

Overing-Auchmuty. This illustration is a 
drawing made from an ancient heraldic painting 
now in possession of a descendant of John Over- 
ing, Esq., of Boston, who was Attorney-General 
of the Province of Massachusetts at intervals 
during the period from 1722 to 1747, and died 24 
Nov., 1748, aged 54. 

Captain Henry Overing his grandson was an 
officer in the English army ; he lived at one time 
in Newport, R. I., and afterward in New York 
City; he married, II Aug., 1795, Charlotte, the 
daughter of James Desbrosses and had issue, two 
sons and a daughter. Captain Overing died in 
New York City, 17 Aug., 1836, and was buried in 
Trinity churchyard. 

His grandson, now living, is the owner of the 
heraldic painting; the blazon is: — Argent a chev- 
ron azure, between three eagle's heads erased sable, impaling gules a spear or 
bendwise, bet-ween two spur rowels of six points or. The silk on winch the 
arms are painted gives every indication of age, being torn and stained and the 
tinctures faded. 

The coat armor on the sinister half of the shield is doubtless that of Auch- 
muty as given in Papworth's Ordinary. The arms on the dexter half are 
presumably those of Overing, though it is a curious fact that no mention of the 
name is made in the books on English heraldry to which the writer has had 

If any reader can give information relating to the pedigree and arms of 
the Overing family in England, he will confer a favor by communicating the 
particulars to this Magazine. 

It may be added that the owner of the painting also possesses a seal, in- 
herited from Capt. Henry Overing, bearing the arms: — Argent, a chevron 
azure between three griffin ' s heads erased, impaling gules a spear bendwise 
between two spur rowels of six points. Crest: — A griffin's head erased. 

John Overing the Attorney-General, is said to have come'to Boston about 
1720; he married Elizabeth, the daughter of Mr. Williams of London, whose 
wife was Anne Furness, of the family of Sir Henry Furness of Waldershare, 
Co. Kent. John Overing's second wife was Henrietta, daughter of Robert 
Auchmuty, of Boston, Judge of the Admiralty; this would seem to explain the 
impaling of the Auchmuty arms.

History of the Penrose Family of Philadelphia. Josiah Gran- 
ville I. each, LL. B. Philadelphia. Published for private circulation by 
Drexel Biddle, Publisher. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. 163. Price $10.00. 

This is the history of Bartholomew Penrose and his descendants. The 
American founder of the line was undoubtedly of Cornish stock, and, prior to 
his arrival in Philadelphia, resided at Bristol, England, where he was engaged, 
with his brother Thomas, in ship-building. He arrived in Philadelphia about 
1700, ami about 1706 began the construction of the ship " Diligence," in which 
VVilliam Penn, James Logan and William Trent were interested, and of 
which Mr. Penrose became master. He did not long survive his arrival in 
America, but died in 171 1, leaving four children, and is buried in the ground of 
Christ Church, with which parish his family long remained identified. The 
handsome volume before us presents many records of famous Philadelphia 
families who intermarried with the Penrose line. The footnotes trace the 
wives' pedigrees and furnish many other genealogical items of value. The 
book is well bound, printed on fine paper, and has many family portraits of 
historic interest, besides other illustrations, including a fine representation in 
color of the Penrose coat of arms. 

Genealogy of the Estabrook Family, including the Ester- 
brook and Eastkrbrooks in the U. S. William Booth Estabrook. 
Ithaca. Andrus & Church. 1891. 8vo, cloth, pp. 359. 

This genealogy, although not of recent date, has just been presented to 
the Society and is so good that we are glad to call attention to it. It traces the 
families of Rev. Joseph, Thomas, William, John, Elijah, Thomas, Isaac and 
Richard Estabrook, whose surnames are spelled differently and are separately 
indexed. There is an appendix with extracts from English records and there 
are several illustrations. 

Family Record of Dr. Seth Hastings, Senior, of Clinton, 
Oneida County, N. Y. By the late Francis H. Hastings of Rochester, N. Y. 
Edited by his daughter. Cincinnati. Earhart & Richardson. 1899. 8vo, 
pp. 202. 

This family record begins with an account of Dea. Thomas Hastings of 
Watertown, who arrived there in 1634. The work is divided into chapters, 
dealing thus with important branches. A most touching and beautiful custom 
is established in the Family Covenant of Dr. Seth Hastings, Sr , on page 21, 
which is too long for quotation. The various appendices contain matter of 
interest, especially the second, which presents a Colonial love letter.

registers, wills and administrations, close rolls, chancery proceedings and sub- 
sidy rolls. The other headings are : The Eells family in America, the

volume contains, therefore, all available information on the ancestry and des- 
cendants of Samuel Eells, son of the first American forefather, and Samuel's 
wife, Anna Lenthall. The American index is particularly fine, identifying 
persons by the year of birth, and in the case of women, the maiden name is 
given in parenthesis and the married name in italics. The fact of this book 
being compiled under the auspices of Mr. Goodwin places it at once among 
the standard genealogies. 

Thirty-first Report, Boston Records. Boston Town Records. 
1784 — 1796. Edward W. McGlenen, City Registrar. Boston. 1003. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 462. 

This record covers an important period of Boston history, and continues 
the invaluable work of the Registry Department. Among the many items of 
interest are the arrangements for Independence Day orations. 

Golden Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. William A. Jessup. 1853— 1903. 
Theodore Jessup, 259 South Clinton Street, Chicago. 1903. Sq. octovo, 
pamphlet, pp. 32. 

This is a pleasant account of a family reunion, with a summary of the 
events of fifty years. The pamphlet also contains ancestral charts of William 
Armstrong Jessup and Mary Jane Van Duzer, his wife, and a sketch of Daniel 
Jessup and his descendants. The author desires all possible information on

County, Ohio, with a Partial List of those in Geauga County, and a 
Membership Roll of New Connecticut Chapter, Daughters of the 
American Revolution. By the New Connecticut Chapter. Painesville, 
Ohio. 8vo, cloth, pp. 94. Price $1.50.

ating local history. The volume contains the biographies, alphabetically 
arranged, of 84 soldiers buried in Lake County, who came from various parts 
of the country ; and three pages of names of those buried in Geauga County.

•/A History of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, 1741 — 1892. With some 
Account of its Founders and their Early Activity in America. 
Joseph Mortimer Levering, Bishop of the Moravian Church. Issued as a 
memorial volume by the Sesejui-Centennial Committee of the Moravian Con- 
gregation of Bethlehem. Times Publishing Co. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. xiv-|- 
809. Profusely illustrated. Price $4.00. 

No adequate history of this interesting town having being written, andi 
because of newspaper publicity, a considerable amount of fiction having been 
disseminated, the Moravian Society has taken from its records and here pre- 
sented to us, a notable volume. Teeming with incident, the narrative tells of 
life-long misunderstanding and persecution, which only served to intensify 
community feeling and characteristics. In its dealings with the outer world, 
the community came in contact with most of the noted men of the day, of 
whom many interesting facts are told. The book is valuable for reference for 
its lists of members, with biographical sketches, its old maps, its many por- 
traits and its triple index.

A Brief History of thf. First PRESBYTERIAN Church of Newtown, 
L. I. Together with the sermon delivered by the Pastor, on the occasion of 
the 2^oth anniversary of the Church, October 26th — November 2d, 1002. Rev. 
Win. H. Hendrickson. Newtown. 1902. 8vo, cloth, pp. 71. Price $1.25. 

Two hundred and fifty years ago a few English emigrants from New Eng- 
land settled on Long Island, calling their new home Middleburg, for it was not 
named Newtown until 1665. They were from Greenwich, Stamford, Fairfield 
and other villages along the Connecticut shore, from Boston and Salem, Mass., 
and from Hempstead, L. I. Among them was the Rev. John Moore, a Presby- 
terian minister from Hempstead, who, with his flock, founded the religious 
body whose anniversary is thus commemorated. Supplementary to the nar- 
rative history are lists of ministers, elders and members which are useful 
material for genealogists. The book is well illustrated. 

The Park Record. Containing an account of the Ancestry and De- 
scendants of Thomas Kinnie Park and Robert Park of Groton, Conn., and 
Grafton, Vt. Compiled by Edwin H. Park. Denver. Bartow tic Ray Print. 

After the family had dwelt in Connecticut for nearly 150 years, the branch 
of which Hezekiah Parke was the head removed to Vermont, settling at Tom- 
linson, now Grafton. This record deals with the line of which the author says, 
" It has become tradition that no Park was ever convicted of a crime, or ever 
held a public office." There is a good triple index, the Park, identifying per- 
sons by dates; Park descendants of other names; and Park consorts. 

John Rogers of Makshfiei.d and Some of His Descendants. 
Josiah H. Drummond. Published by Rhoda B. Ellis. West Hanover, Mass. 
Portland. Smith & Sale, Printers. 8 vo, pamphlet, pp. 194. 

The compiler of this genealogy has adopted a system of notation which is 
complicated in appearance, but not difficult to understand, and which seerns to 
work well. He traces nine generations of descendants, who were a homekeep- 
ing people, and have always been most strongly represented in the old home 
town of Marshfield.

Concerning Book Plates. A Handbook for Collectors. Zella Allen 
Dixson, A.M. Chicago. Wisteria Cottage Press. 1903. 8vo, Art Linen, pp. 
ix-f-217. Price, $3.50. 

It is a far cry from chained-up books to free circulating libraries. Some- 
where between the two appears the Book-Plate, like a beneficent fairy, 
protecting the interests of both. The Book-Plate has its castes. Between the 
knightly emblem, bearing its coat of arms, and the plain and uncompromising 
"Steal not this book my honest friend, for fear the gallows will be your end," 
are many degrees of rank. This handbook treats of special examples of these, 
as well as of book-plate artists, societies, collections and other cognate matters. 
It is a beautiful book, a delight to eye and hand, from its wisteria-hung sign on 
the cover, to its last compact, clear, fascinating page. In its typography and 
press-work, the book is Miss Dixon's craft work, and she may feel justly proud 
of the result. 

The Larimer, McMasters and Allied Families. Rachel H. L. 
Mellon. Philadelphia. Printed for Private Circulation by J. B. Lippincott 
Company. 10,03. 8 vo, cloth, pp. 196. 

This dignified book contains records, with many biographical details, of 
the Larimer, Sheakley, McCurdy, Creighton, McMasters, Hughey, King, 
McLaughlin and Irwin families, with separate chapters devoted to marriages, 
deeds, wills and other matters relating to these well-known Pennsylvanians. 
It is fully and handsomely illustrated with many portraits and photographs of 
the homes of different members of the family.

the Proceedings of the Worcester Society of Antiquity. Mrs. E. O. P. Sturgis. 
Worcester. Press of Charles Hamilton. 1903. 8 vo, pamphlet, pp. 37. 

This is a pleasant, rambling account of a well-bred family of the olden 
time, told with an ease and charm that make it delightful reading. 

A Memoir of the Marine Society of the City of New York, 
in the State of New York. New York. Printed for the Society by John 
Polhemus Printing Company. 1903. 8 vo, flexible leather, pp. 97. 

The Marine Society is a Guild of Seamen, whose only object is charity. 
Its noble history, beginning with its foundation in 1769, is modestly told in this 
beautful volume. There is a valuable roster of officers and members (masters 
of vessels) with date of admission to the Society, covering 53 papers. 

Historical Papers No. X of the Historical Society of Newburgh 
Bay and the Highlands. Newburgh. 1903. 8 vo, pamphlet, pp. 50. 

This number, beside the account of the annual meeting, contains grave- 
yard inscriptions in the Bond Family Burying Ground, and the Gardnertown M. 
E. Church Cemetery, and articles on The King's Highway and the Ancient 
Newburgh Family of Cornelius Wood. There is also an Obituary Record of 
the late MacLeod Rogers. This Society is doing a work in preserving town 
records which should be emulated throughout New York State. There could 
be no better public service rendered by country chapters of historical or 
patriotic societies than printing their local vital records, and one wonders why 
it is not more systematically done.

Haney, Hitchcock, Kerwin, Lawson, Lowry, McAlpin, Peper, Richardson, 
Rittenhouse, Southwood, Stolp, Williams and Wright families. Their history 
is told with much appreciation by the author, and he has given many little 
details of early life and character which one reads with keen interest. There 
is a good index.

Roster of the Society of Sons of the Revolution in the 
State ok Missouri, 1901-1903. Compiled by Henry Cadle, Secretary. St. 
Louis. Woodward & Tiernan Printing Co. 10x13. 8 vo, cloth, pp. 232. 

This is an imposing volume both in size and appearance, bound in Conti- 
nental blue and buff, and containing portraits of many of the present-day 
wearers of the honors of 'Seventy-Six, who are members of the Missouri 
Society. This portrait number should be of permanent interest for many 
reasons, among them being that it is a unique venture of the Society. The 
organization in Missouri has 395 members, representing 512 ancestors, and is 
in a flourishing condition, The book has, as frontispiece, a fine reproduction 
in color of the flag of the Sons of the Revolution, which is followed by general 
information pertaining to the Society, amongst other things an account of 
Medals of Honor annually awarded by the organization for papers on assigned 
topics. A roster of ancestors and descendents, and forty-three pages of 
necrology close the volume. 

Partridge Genealogy. Descendants of John Partridge, of 
Medfield, Mass. George Homer Partridge, B. S. Boston. Press of David 
Clapp & Son. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. v-46. Price, S2.00. 

This volume, which is in part a reprint from the Registrr, contains brief 
records of nearly all male descendants of John Partridge, of Medfield, Mass., for 
six generations. It is thorough and business-like in its records, giving refer- 
ences in brackets after important facts, and commending itself to the reader by 
its excellent index. Good features of the index are, in the case of the Part- 
ridge descendants, the generation number after each name, and the married 
name or names in brackets after those of the women. There are two illustra- 
tions, one of the Patridge Manor House, Wishanger, Gloucestershire, England, 
and the other a fac-simile of the will of John Beebe. 

History of Southwest Virginia, 1746-1786. Washington County, 
1777-1870. Louis Preston Summers, member of the Virginia Historical Society. 
Richmond. J. L. Hill Printing Co. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. 921. Price, S2.50. 

Beginning with a general outline of explorations and settlements in Vir- 
ginia in the general westward trend of civilization, the author proceeds in a 
most thorough and satisfactory way to develop the history of a section of that 
great State which should be better known than has hitherto been the case. 
The book is written in an easy and interesting style, and contains lists of set- 
tlers, with date, name and area of their lands; rosters of troops; maps; returns 
of killed and wounded in battle; electoral tickets and names of electors; civil 
lists; surveyors' records; biographical sketches, and much other valuable mat- 
ter, with index. The author has done a good work in printing all the facts 
obtainable, and leaving the reader to choose for himself out of this storehouse 
what he will use. The book is worth more than the advertised price. 

The Canadian Year Book for 1003. All About Canada. Pub-

betical Militia List, and a Civil List, in convenient reference form. 

Family of Rev. Solomon Their Record from Christmas, 1725 
to Christmas, A. D., 1902. Caroline A. Ely and Lou'se Hunt, Secretaries of 
the Mead Memorial Association, Ridgefield, Conn. 1902. Ob., S. cloth, pp. 
307. Price, $2.00. 

The Rev. Solomon Mead was descended from William Mead, who 
arrived in America in 1635, and finally settled in Greenwich, Conn. The sub- 
ject of this record was born in 1725; settled in South Salem, 1752; was lifelong 
pastor of the church he founded, and died in 1812. The book has an interest- 
ing preliminary account of the family, past and present, illustrated by numer- 
ous cuts. The genealogical pages alone are numbered. In them the names are 
printed, but the dates and other facts are all in manuscript, beautifully done,

and so evidently a labor of love, that one guesses at the spirit which sustained 
the writer through many laborious hours. The system used is, that families or 
individuals whose record is concluded are closely grouped and marked (X), all 
having their generation indicated by Roman numbers. References are made 
from the parent families by succeeding page numbers, counting forward only. 

A Registry of American Families Entitled to Coat Armor from

This excellent handbook is unique in its particular field, and contains the 
arms of more than one thousand families, with the full name of the first of the 
family in America; the date of his arrival and the place of settlement, and, in 
the majority of instances, the town or county from whence he came. The Reg- 
istry is about to be issued in a second edition, with the addition of over five 
hundred names, and will be ready April 15th. 

Quinnabaug Historical Society Leaflets. Vol. I., No. II. The

sketches of its most famous members, among them William Larned Marcy, 
Governor of New York, with a picture of his birth place, the aecestral home 
at Southbridge, Mass. 

Arnold's Expedition to Quebec. By John Codman, 2nd. Special 
edition with added matter and Illustrations. Edited by William Abbatt. Pub- 
lished for William Abbatt, 281 Fourth Avenue, New York, by The Macmillan 
Company. 1903. Quarto, cloth, pp. xvi-f-371. Price, $7.50. 

It is easy to be wise after the event, and nothing is more tempting or more 
futile than to point out what might have been. If our forefathers had had 
more toleration, and had conciliated the French habitants of Canada; if the 
Canadians had been willing to throw off their yoke of oppression instead of 
waiting for these colonies to do it for them, the War for Independence might 
never have happened. England would hardly face a continent in arms. But 
it was no time for patience and clear sight in the noise and dust of debate as to 
whether we dare defy the stern mother of our land. So we struck Canada in- 
stead of embracing her; and who so fit a leader for this dramatic venture as 
Benedict Arnold ? Daring, seif-confident, energetic, popular, this brilliant 
captain inspired his men; and what they braved and suffered together, from the 
"Terrible Carry" to the end of the siege, needs Mr. Codman's vivid words to 
tell. This author, in order to enter into his tale with sympathy, followed the 
trail of the army on foot and by canoes, picturing, no doubt, the quaint old-time 
figures toiling before him, painfully yet sturdily fronting the wildeness, with 
its manifold dangers and sufferings which had so humiliating an end. Mr. 
Codman's life was sacrificed as a result of the hardships and exposure of this 
journey; and, so dying, he leaves a significant commentary on this great work 
of his life; that in this age, as in that, men can see a vision, and give up life 
itself for its sake. 

Wheat Genealogy. A History of the Wheat Family in America, with 
a brief account of the Name and Family in England and Normandy. Vol. I. 
Silas C. Wheat. Brooklyn, I903. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 122. Price, $2.00. 

This author has used a clear and interesting system of notation, number- 
ing each family in heavy-faced type, and numbering the children in each group 
beginning with I. Each child in founding his own branch, is recognized by his 
father's family number in heavy-faced type followed by his own birth-number 
in lighter type. Footnotes are headed with the family number followed by let- 
ters of the alphabet. The wife's line is given in most instances, as the author 
ascribes the variation of character in different brandies to the influence of the 
maternal family. The work is well illustrated and has a good triple index. 
The second volume, tracing an unfinished line begun in Vol. I, will shortly

Chronicles of a Pioneer School from 1792 to 1833. Being the 
History of Miss Sarah Pierce, and her Litchfield School. Com- 
piled by Emily Noyes Vanderpoel, Vice-President of the Litchfield Historical 
Society. Edited by Elizabeth C. Barney Buel, A. B. Printed by the Univer- 
sity Press, Cambridge, Mass. 1003. ovo, cloth, pp. 465. 65 illustrations. 
Price, $3.50. 

Quaint, charming, breathing the atmosphere of lavender, soft rustlings of 
muslin and little sober footfalls sound through these pages. Their gentle 
ghosts tell us, mostly in capitals, of Rules copied by the Young Ladies, of ele- 
vated little dramatic efforts, of journals scrupulously kept, of demure festivi- 
ies earned by good conduct. There must have been a great searching of old 
attics on rainy days, and bringing forth of old treasures, to make tins book the 
facinating record it is of one of our famous early schools. The old school reg- 
isters, with their remarks opposite the pupils names, are especially valuable. 
The illustrations give additional life and zest to this delightful volume. One 
lays the book down wishing one's great-grandmother had lived in Litchfield 
and gone to Miss Pierce's school, so that one might imagine her doing all the 
interesting things recorded here.

Bv James Grant Wilson. 

William Collins Whitney (1841-1904), like so many others 
whose names will be indissolubly associated with the history of 
the City of New York, was of New England origin. On the 
paternal side he was descended from John Whitney who came 
from England to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1635, and on 
his mother's side could trace his descent from Governor William 
Bradford of the Plymouth Colony. In him met, therefore, the 
somewhat differing traits of Puritan and Pilgrim. He was born 
July 5th, 1841, in Conway, Franklin County, Massachusetts, and 
was the son of James Scollay Whitney and Laurinda Collins, 
daughter of William Collins, after whom he was named. On the 
father's side he came from an English knightly family which as 
early as the thirteenth century was established at Whitney in 
Herefordshire, from which estate it took its name. Through in- 
termarriage with the Baskervilles and Touchetts the Whitneys 
of Whitney were descended from the earls of Hereford and Kent, 
and their descendants can thus claim the blood of some of those 
whose names are familiar in early English history. His father 
was one of the most prominent and influential citizens of Mas- 
sachusetts and was at one period the leader of the Massachusetts 
Democracy. Under President Pierce he was superintendent of 
the United States Arsenal at Springfield, the first citizen to be 
appointed to that responsible office, and was afterward appointed 
by President Buchanan collector of the Port of Boston. In i860, 
he was delegate at large to the Democratic National Convention 
which met at Charleston, S. C, and in 1876 was president of the 
state convention which nominated Charles Francis Adams for 
Governor of Massachusetts. In early life he took an active part 
in military affairs and when only twenty-four years old was hon- 
ored with a commission as Brigadier-General of the Second 
Brigade of the Fourth Division of the Massachusetts' Militia. 

Gen. James Scollay Whitney was the son of Stephen Whitney 
of South Deerfield. His mother was Mary A. Burgess, daughter 
of Dr. Benjamin Burgess of Goshen, Mass. Her sister married 
Mitchell Dawes and was the mother of Henry L. Dawes, United 


154 William Collins Whitney. [July. 

States Senator from Massachusetts. Stephen Whitney was the 
son of Josiah Whitney and the grandson of General Josiah Whit- 
ney, both of Harvard, Mass., and soldiers of the Revolution. 
Gen. Whitney, whose mother was Hannah Whitcomb, a relative 
of Col. Asa Whitcomb of Lancaster, Mass., inherited a fondness 
for military affairs. In 1755 he marched in Col. Whitcomb's reg- 
iment against the French and Indians and was in the bloody bat- 
tle of Lake George, Sept. 8, 1755, when Dieskau at the head of a 
superior force was signally defeated by the undisciplined valor of 
the New England yeomanry led by Gen. Phineas Lyman. At 
the outbreak of the Revolution he was appointed Lieut. -Colonel 
of the regiment commanded by Col. Asa Whitcomb which was 
the largest of the twenty-six Massachusetts regiments at the 
siege of Boston, and in 1777 he became Colonel of a regiment 
raised for the defence of Boston harbor. He represented Har- 
vard in the state legislature for several years and in 1788 was 
delegate to the convention held in Boston for the purpose of rat- 
ifying the Federal Constitution. Richard Whitney of Harvard, 
the father of Gen. Whitney, was the son of Richard Whitney, 
who was the son of another of the same name, who was the son 
of John Whitney who came in 1635 from London to New Eng- 
land and settled at Watertown, Mass., where he was selectman, 
town clerk and a man of property. He was the son of Thomas 
Whitney, gentleman, of Westminster, England, son of Robert 
Whitney and grandson of Sir Robert Whitney of Whitney, Here- 
fordshire, England, by his wife Sybil, daughter of James Basker- 
ville of Eardesley in Herefordshire.* 

Mr. Whitney prepared for college at Williston Seminary, 
Easthampton, Mass., and entered Yale in 1859, graduating with 
honors in the class of 1863. Among his classmates was William 
G. Sumner, afterward Professor Sumner of Yale University, and 
Oliver Payne of Ohio. Between them Whitney and Sumner 
shared the prize for English essays, but in the election for class 
orator the former was successful over the other. In the autumn 
of 1863 he entered the Harvard Law School whence he was grad- 
uated in 1865, and he then entered the law office of Abraham R. 
Lawrence in New York City. In his profession he was very suc- 
cesssful, speedily acquiring a large practice. In 1869 he was 
married to Miss Flora B. Payne, the sister of his college friend, 
Payne, and two years later began to concern himself actively in 
politics. William M. Tweed was then at the height of his power 
in New York, and Whitney, joining the opposition movement, 
was the chief organizer of the Young Men's Democratic Club. 
His efforts brought him to the favorable notice of Samuel J. 
Tilden, who is said to have regarded him as the ablest political 
protege" he ever had. The organization known as the Apollo Hall 
was next organized by Mr. Whitney, and he was the unsuccess- 
ful candidate of that organization for District Attorney in 1872. 
He then became prominent as a leader of the County Democracy, 
was appointed inspector of schools, and took an active part in

the campaign of 1874, the result of which was the electior. 
Tilden as Governor and Wickham as Mayor of New York. Mr. 
Whitney was appointed Corporation Counsel by Mayor Wick- 
ham, a position he held until 1882, when he returned to his priv- 
ate practise. While Corporation Counsel he administered affairs 
so judiciously as to save the City some ten or twelve millions of 
dollars. As a result of the Tweed regime about 3,800 suits were 
pending against the City, fifteen or twenty millions being thus 
involved. Mr. Whitney succeeded in securing a discontinuance 
of many of these suits and compromised others, while by system- 
atizing the work of his office a saving of nearly two millions was 
effected the first year. 

After returning to private practice he became counsel to var- 
ious important corporations and soon took high rank as a cor- 
poration lawyer. He did not, however, lose his interest in poli- 
tics, and during the presidential campaign of 1884, did much in 
the way of organization to secure the election of Mr. Cleveland. 
In the March following Mr. Whitney became Secretary of the 
Navy in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet, and at the time of his death 
many careless eulogists credited him with being the " Father of 
the New Navy," a title to distinction that Mr. Whitney never 
claimed. The creation of the new navy began with the appoint- 
ment of the Naval Advisory Board in 1881, was carried on by 
Secretaries Hunt and Chandler, and continued by Mr. Whitney, 
who is justly entitled to a portion of the credit. 

By the act of Aug. 5, 1882, Congress authorized the construc- 
tion of two steam steel cruisers, the steel to be of domestic man- 
ufacture. One of these cruisers was to have between 5,000 and 
6,000 tons displacement; the other between 4,000 and 4,300 tons. 
No appropriation was voted, and at the following session the 
building programme was modified. The act of March 3, 1883, 
provided for the construction of three steel cruisers— one of 4,000 
tons, two of about 2,500 tons and one iron dispatch boat. The 
ships designed and built under this act were the Chicago, the 
Boston, the Atlanta and the Dolphin. At the time of their com- 
pletion the Cleveland administration had come in, and as ex-Sec- 
retary John D. Long points out in his recently published volumes 
on The New American Navy, one of the least creditable acts of 
that administration " was Its unjust depreciation of some of these 
ships — a depreciation which, by their splendid record of long and 
efficient service, has been shown to be utterly unfounded or 
founded only on mistaken partisanship." 

Leaving this aside, Secretary Whitney in his four years 
as Secretary, from 1885 to 1889, played a conspicious and 
effective role in the creation of our modern navy. His greatc-t 
achievement was the negotiation of armor plate contracts which 
made possible the establishment at South Bethlehem of a domes- 
tic armor plate plant. He showed a keen, practical and patriotic 
interest in the work he was charged with carrying on. He en- 
larged and improved the new navy. But he did not originate it. 

On the expiration of his term in the cabinet, Mr. Whitney 
gave himself to an enterprise he had had for some time in mind — 

I 56 William Collins Whitney. [July. 

the consolidation of the street railways of Manhattan, and acquir- 
ing, with others, control of various independent roads, he estab- 
lished the Metropolitan Street Railway Company. His remark- 
able skill as an organizer displayed in other fields ere this was 
equally apparent in the present enterprise, and a brilliant com- 
mercial success followed his efforts. His estimates of men, his 
quick and sound decisions and his ability to foresee conditions 
stood him instead as much in business enterprises as in public 
office. He lost no time in waiting for opportunities — he pre- 
ferred to create them. 

In the campaign of 1892 Mr. Whitney's political abilities were 
brought into fullest exercise. He was himself the choice for the 
presidency on the part of many who were prominent in the Dem- 
ocratic ranks, and it is quite possible that he might have been the 
candidate of the party had he been willing to accept the nom- 
ination. Two opposite conditions however, were soon discover- 
able in the Democratic body, the one a desire for Mr. Cleveland's 
renomination, the other an organized opposition against him in 
favor af another presidential possibility. At once Mr. Whitney 
laid aside all personal ambition and devoted himself with a 
splendid loyalty to the cause of his former chief. The " snap 
convention" in New York, as it was termed, had by this time 
chosen a delegation in opposition to Mr. Cleveland, and initial 
movements looking to the same end were being started in other 
states. Mr. Whitney promptly summoned prominent Demo- 
cratic leaders from his own and other states to a private confer- 
ence at his house in New York. No report of the doings of this 
conference reached the public, yet it is known that at this meet- 
ing the whole work of the forthcoming Chicago convention was 
carefully outlined, and each man's part assigned him, no details 
being left to the inspiration of the moment. At the convention 
itself everything fell out as had been planned, and Mr. Cleveland 
was nominated on the first ballot as the conference had prev- 
iously determined. It is unnecessary to say that after the elec- 
tion of Mr. Cleveland Mr. Whitney could have had any office 
within the gift of the President-elect that he wished, but satis- 
fied with the knowledge that he had led his party to victory, he 
declined all offers of office and once more took up his varied 
business interests. 

The close of the campaign of 1892 marks the retirement of 
Mr. Whitney from the political arena. Yet in 1896 he consented 
to become a delegate to the Democratic convention in Chicago 
and exerted all the influence at his command to stem the free 
silver tide and prevent the nomination of Mr. Bryan. His dis- 
satisfaction with the platform and ticket adopted by the conven- 
tion was very freely expressed. When asked whether he would 
support the ticket nominated, he boldly replied: "There are no 
possible conditions or circumstances that would induce me to 
vote for it or assist it." It was hoped by some of his friends 
after the election of 1900 that he might consent to become the 
presidential candidate of a reorganized Democratic party, but at 
Saratoga in Aug., 1902, he announced that he had retired from 

1904.) William Collins Whitney. I 57 

all politics, saying: " I will never again be a candidate for a 
office and my friends may as well understand this first as last. I 
mean what I say." 

One of the latest business enterprises in which Mr. Whitney 
was engaged was the organization of the New York Electric 
Light, Heat and Power Company, with a capital of fifty millio 
This was npt accomplished without opposition from the Consol- 
idated Gas Company, and the final result of the struggle was the 
acquirement of the New York Electric Light, Heat and Power 
Company, by the Consolidated Gas Company, Mr. Whitney and 
several of his associates in the former enterprise now becoming 
directors in the consolidated company. In 1901, upon arriving 
at his sixtieth birthday, he announced his intention of retiring 
from business in order to spend the rest of his days in the pleas- 
ures of leisure. Few men possessed ampler equipment for the en- 
joyment of existence. He was a man of the most varied interests, 
gifted with a highly cultivated mind and the capacity for attach- 
ing friends most firmly to him; possessed also with broad and 
generous sympathies, and a fortune beyond the dreams of avar: 1 

No man in the new world possessed more estates than Mr. 
Whitney. Besides his palacial mansion on Fifth Avenue he 
owned a country seat at Roslyn, Long Island, including an estate 
of five thousand acres, with a covered race track and what have 
been called the finest training stables in the country. In the 
Berkshire Hills he had a summer home with seven hundred acres 
of land attached to it, and he was also the owner of October 
Mountain at Lenox, comprising ten thausand acres. His Adiron- 
dack game preserve included sixteen thousand acres. He had a 
farm in the Kentucky blue grass region comprising three thous- 
and acres; at Aiken he owned an estate of two thousand acres 
with a house and race course, and to all these must be added his 
lodge at Blue Mountain Lake with a golf course, and his shooting 
box in England. The October Mountain estate and the Adiron- 
dack game preserve may be said to have been held in trust for 
the public benefit. His ownership of the former secured its re- 
maining a forest tract and a perpetual delight to the eye from 
many points of view in its neighborhood, while his still larger 
Adirondack estate formed a factor in the movement to preserve 
the forests in northren New York for the husbanding of the 
water supply. 

Mr. Whitney was eminently social in his nature and one is not 
surprised to find that he belonged to the Metropolitan, Union, 
Knickerbocker, Manhattan. University, Century, New York- 
Yacht, Jockey, Suburban Riding and Driving, and Automobile 
Clubs, as well as to the Country Club of Westchester. He was 
also a member of the Mayflower, the New England, the New 
York Genealogical, and the New York Zoological Societies, as 
well as of the American Museum of Natural History, the Metro- 
politan Museum of Art and the Chamber of Commerce. The 
breadth of his sympathies and the extent of his interests are in- 
adequately indicated by this list, not wholly complete, of his 
estates and the long roll of clubs and societies of which he was a 


158 William Collins Whitney. [July, 

member. They serve to show that his aspirations were not lim- 
ited merely to the acquiring of a vast fortune, the pursuit of 
pleasure, or of politics. He gave a due proportion of his atten- 
tion te all, but entire absorption in any one of them was guarded 
against, and, we believe, would have been for him impossible. It 
is not given every man to achieve a well rounded career, but in 
Mr. Whitney's case it seems to have been accomplished. It 
would be difficult to name any American who secured more out 
of life in proportion to his opportunities and abilities, and who 
made at the same time adequate return to society and to his 

It was not merely as a man of wealth that he was so gener- 
ally esteemed. Not a few of his contemporaries possessed for- 
tunes equal in amount to his own, and there were some whose 
fortunes were greater. In common with many others he pos- 
sessed the' instincts which lead men to acquire, but these were 
supplemented and tempered by the more gracious qualities which 
gathered about him an ever widening circle of devoted friends, 
and inspired him with the desire to promote the happiness and 
success of those with whom he had to do. 

Said ex-President Cleveland, on hearing of the death of his 
friend and former Secretary of the Navy: "Mr. Whitney had 
more calm, forceful efficiency than any man I ever knew. In 
work that interested him he actually seemed to court difficulties 
and to find pleasure and exhilaration in overcoming them. His 
judgment was quick, clear and astonishingly acurate, and when 
it was called into action his mental poise was so complete that 
neither passion nor irritation could lead it astray." These are 
the words of a faithful friend, and one who shared the same 
political opinions, but men who differed very widely from Mr. 
Whitney have been prompt to add their testimony to his efficiency 
in the public service. In the course of a speech delivered in the 
United States Senate on Feb. 12, 1889, his political opponent, 
Preston B. Plumb of Kansas, paid him the following tribute, as 
sincere as it was well deserved: 

" I am glad to say in the closing hours of Mr. Whitney's ad- 
ministration that the affairs of his department have been well 
administered. They have been well administered not only in the 
sense that everything has been honestly and faithfully done, but 
there has been a stimulous given, so far as it could be done by 
executive direction, to the production of the best types of ships 
and the highest form of manufacture, and, more than all that, to 
the encouragement of the inventive genius of our people and to 
the performance of all possible work not in navy-yards, where 
they might be most surely made the instrument of political 
strength, but in private shipyards and manufactories, to the 
effect that we have got to-day enlisted in this good work of 
building the American navy not only the navy department backed 
by Congress, but we have got the keen competition of American 
manufactories and the inventive genius of all our people, so that 
we may confidently expect not only the best results but great 
improvement each year. I am glad to say that during the past 

1904O Edward Fuller and His Descendants. 15c; 

four years the navy department has been administered in a prac- 
tical, level-headed, judicious way, and the result is such that I 
am prepared to believe and to say that within ten years we shall 
have the best navy in the world." 

It is much indeed that a man's friends should hasten to speak 
well of him, for their praises come from the heart, but it is a still 
greater tribute to worth when those who did not call themselves 
his friends, and who in many things were ranged among his op- 
ponents, utter their sincere commendations also. 

Much regret has been expressed by many prominent men thai 
Mr. Whitney abandoned public life, for which he was so admir- 
ably fitted, and should have devoted his great powers to the mere 
accumulation of wealth, in which he was bewilderingly successful. 
But what is his fame compared with Cleveland's, whose successor 
he might have been? Whitney could deal with men and events 
He had the force and temper, and he knew how. His public ser- 
vices were important and they might, had he been so minded, 
have been more so. But he abandoned his opportunities of pub- 
lic distinction for another and less famous field of activity — the 
acquisition of a great fortune. He made millions — not to hoard, 
but to spend freely and indeed lavishly, in vast estates, in prince- 
ly palaces, in superb paintings and statues, in celebrated horses 
and herds of wild animals. He was also a generous and kind 
man. In well-considered words Mr. Cleveland speaks of Mr 
Whitney's "devotion to his friends, his extreme consideration for 
all with whom he came in contact, his thoughtfulness for the 
ease and comfort of others, and his ready impulse to help those 
who needed help." To this tribute from the ex-President, the 
present writer may perhaps be permitted to add, that he never 
sought Mr. Whitney's assistance in behalf of any worthy object, 
that it was not given promptly and generously.

Family Record of Solomon Drowne. 



Contributed bv Henry R. Drowne. 

This interesting family record is published to correct an 
error that has been made in the Drowne family genealogy, where- 
in Solomon Drowne, son of Leonard, born Jan. 23, 1681, died Oct. 
9, 1730, married Esther Jones, Nov. 8, 1705 (born Aug. 18, 1687 
and died July a6, 1744) is quoted as having had twelve children. 
It would seem that the Bristol Registry is responsible for the 
error, that Solomon Drowne and Esther (or Hester) had a son 
Solomon, born Oct. 4, 1700, and also a son Solomon, born Oct. f, 
1706. A copy made from this Registry about a century ago for 
Dr. Solomon Drowne (of the Revolution) reads "Solomon 
Drowne, son of Solomon Drowne and Hester his wife was born 
at one of the clock in the morning of Oct. 4, 1706" (not 1700 as 
now printed in the Bristol Registry) and contains but one of 
these entries of birth in connection with those of the other children. 
Furthermore Solomon and Esther were not married until 1705. 

This corrects statement published on p. 2 1 5 of the Record under 
date of July, 1886, and shows the births of the eleven children.

of a long strip of paper.

Compiled by William Barent Wemple, Jr. 

Although in the records relating to the first ancestor of this 
family in America the name is universally written " Wemp," 
there is good reason for believing that the correct form was 
" Wemple," as used at the present day. Commencing with the 
grandchildren of the immigrant, the records sometimes speak of 
the same person as " Wemp" and at others as "Wemple." With 
the next generation the name is almost always written " Wemple." 
A more convincing proof, however, is a very old silver cup which 
belonged to the immigrant and now in the possession of Mrs. B. 
Lansing Wagner, Baltimore, Md., which bears the date 1657 and 
his name in full "Jan Baerensen Wimpel;" the change of the e 
to i being undoubtedly due to an error on the part of the en-

graver. It might be added in this connection that the surname 
" Wiimpel," appears in Bavaria as early, at least, as 1600. 

1 Barf.nt Wemple, was the father of Jan Barentsen Wemple 
who was the founder of the Wemple family in America. No 
knowledge has been obtained concerning him further than this 
simple fact. He never came to America. Child: 

2 Jan Barentsen, b. about 1620. 

2 Jan Barentsen Wemple, b. about 1620, this being as 
near as can now be ascertained. He came to America about 
1645, and was then living in Rensselaerswyck Colony, his name 
appearing in the Van Rensselaer Manor account books for that 
year. A reference in that account to one in a prior ledger, which 
cannot now be found, indicates that he was in the Colony before 
1645, but his arrival cannot be exactly determined. The accounts 
between him and the Van Rensselaers run continuously from 
1645 down to the time of his death in 1663, and after that with 
his widow until 1675, those after 1664 showing his widow to be 
the wife of Sweer Teunise Van Velsen. Jan Barentsen Wemple 
was also called Jan Barentsen " Poest," but old documents prove 
the " Poest " to be merely a nick-name. One conclusive evidence 
of this is an original bill of account made against him by Jan 
Baptist Van Rensselaer in 1659. The face of the account, and 
giving his correct name, was made out in Holland, but when filed 
away in this country it was endorsed Jan Barentsen " Poest," on 
the back. In 1659 he purchased from the Indian proprietors a 
farm now within the city of Troy, N. Y. It is the first recorded 
purchase of land in or near that city. This farm lay alon^ a 
stream to which was given the name of Poestenkil and is still 
known as such. A village on the stream, and the township in 
which the village is located, are both called Poestenkil. He built 
a saw-mill on the stream, known as the Poesten Mill. April 29, 
1653, he sued Marten de Brouwer for the payment of 2000 bricks, 
which was settled. July .'4, 105S, .£lwBn the village of Bever- 
wyk was deeded him. <»The property was bounded on the north 
by his own lot, so it was not his first purchase. April 22, 1 661, he 
rented a house and lot in the Colony to Cornelis Bogart. Feb. 4, 
1662, he was deeded a house and garden in Fort Orange which 
constituted a portion of the eastern curtain of the fort. Sept. 16, 
1662, he and Marten Mouwerensz hired Hendrick Arentse to work 
their farm at Schenectady for one year. Gov. Stuyvesant grant- 
ed, Nov. 12, 1662, to Jan. Barentsen Wemple and Jacques Cor- 
nelise (Van Slyck) the great island at Schenectady. The original 
patent is still in existence and now in Union College library 
This is the earliest grant in Schenectady or vicinity. Historians 
have always called him one of "the original 15 proprietors of 
Schenectady," but he never lived there as did the others. He re- 
sided in Albany continuously from 1645 until his death, which 
occured between May 18, 1663, and July 7, 1663. Having fur- 
nished considerable money to Aert Pietersen Tack of Esopus, for 
equipping Tack's farm, which was not repaid, his widow appoint- 
ed, Jan. 10, 1664, three agents to proceed to Esopus and take the 
property for her benefit. June 12, 1664, Maritie Mynderts, widow

of Jan Barentsen Wemple, was about to marry Sweer Theunisse 
Van Westbroeck (also known as Van Velsen), and before the 
ceremony was performed she entered into an agreement with the 
guardians of the children brought forth between herself and 
husband, Jan Barentsen Wemple, settling upon them a portion of 
their father's estate. This valuable genealogical document 
proves the names and ages of the children and is attested by the 
original signatures of the interested parties. This settlement 
shows him to have been of considerable means for the time. 
About 1669, Van Westbroeck removed with his wife and her 
children from Albany to Schenectady, where he operated a mill 
and became one of the trustees of the Schenectady patent. Van 
Westbroeck and his wife were both killed in the massacre of 
Schenectady by the French and Indians, Feb. 9, 1690. Children:

Motto: Nee arrogo nee dubito. 

These arms, of which an illustration is given, are those borne 
by the Hurrys of Great Yarmouth, Co. Norfolk, England. The 
name was probobly originally Urrey. It is claimed by the fam- 
ily that it came originally from Scotland and descended from the 
Lords Eure which title became extinct, afterwards made Lords 
Pitfichy, Lords of the Marches, which also became extinct and 
from whom was descended Gen. Sir John Hurry. 

The first of this family found recorded at Great Yarmouth is 
Thomas Hurry who was admitted to the freedom of the borough 
by purchase, August, 5, 1701. His son Thomas, was born at Great 
Yarmouth in 1694, and died at London in 1780, aged eighty-six. 
He married Elizabeth, daughter of Gabriel Clifton of Great 
Yarmouth by Elizabeth, his wife, daughter of John Ives of Great 
Yarmouth. They had eleven children. Samuel the fifth son,

married Isabella, daughter of John Hall of Whitby, and had a 
daughter, Elizabeth, who married Robert Alderson of Great 
Yarmouth and was the mother of Sir Edward Hall Alderson, 
Baron of the Court of Exchequer, whose daughter Georgina 
Caroline married Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil, the late 
Marquis of Salisbury. William, the seventh son, married Ann, 
daughter of Edmund Cobb of Great Yarmouth, by whom he had 
a daughter, Priscilla, who married Michael Maurice of Normans- 
ton in Suffolk and was the mother of the celebrated theologian, 
John Frederick Denison Maurice, Professor of Philosophy at the 
University of Cambridge. 

John, the third son of Thomas and Elizabeth Hurry, was born 
at Great Yarmouth, May 8, 1724, and died there August 19, 1782. 
He married April 14, 1746, Sarah Winn. His eldest son, John, 
born in 1747, settled in Liverpool as a merchant and ship-owner, 
where he married Alice Cross, formerly of St. Helens, Lanca- 
shire, and died May 20, 1806. Samuel, their third son, was born 
at his father's residence in Bold Street, Liverpool, on Nov. 24th, 
1778. He was the founder of the American branch of the 
Hurry family of Great Yarmouth. He early evinced a strong 
desire to become a resident of the United States and when only 
seventeen years of age, and against the counsels of his family, 
sailed in one of his father's ships for North America. He settled 
at Philadelphia wheie he married, October 1, 1798, Eliza Ann, 
eldest daughter of William Whiteside of Philadelphia. He was 
one of the foremost American merchants and ship-owners of his 
day. William Whiteside was of the Whitesides of Poulton-le- 
Fylde, Lancashire, England, where they entertained George III 
William Whiteside and his brother Peter were associated in bus- 
iness with the celebrated Robert Morris of Philadelphia, and 
toother with him were the originators of the American East 
India trade with the western hemisphere by the Southern passage 

Samuel Hurry died at Liverpool, January 31, 1820, while on a 
visit to his native country, and was buried in the Hurry family 
vault. His wife died at New York, Aug. 8, i860. They had five 
sons and five daughters. Of the sons the two eldest, John and 
Samuel, died without issue. The third son, William ( Whitt - 
was born at Philadelphia, April 2, 1805; married October 10, 1827, 
Adeline, daughter of Samuel Hinman, and had ten children. 
The fourth son, Edmund (Cobb), was born at Philadelphia, Sep- 
tember 17, 1807, and married April 25, 1838, Elizabeth Maria, 
daughter of James Flanagan, Counsellor-at-Law, of New York, 
who was the eldest son of Christopher Flanagan (the orator and 
bibliopole) of Dublin, who left that city in 1786 and settled in 
New York City. They had three children, the eldest of whom, 
Edmund Abdy, was born August 8, 1839, at New York where he 
married November 17, 186S, Emily Ashton, daughter of William 
Rhinelander Renwick. James, the youngest son of Samuel 
Hurry and Eliza Ann Whiteside, was born at New York, Jan- 
uary 27, 1815, and married Emily, daughter of William Goelet 
Bucknor of New York. The original motto of the Hurry family 
was Sans tache and has never really been eliminated.

We extend a cordial welcome to the new genealogical publication entitled 
The Genealogical Exchange, Mrs. Natalie K. Fernald, editor, and published 
monthly at 230 Ashland Avenue, Buffalo, N. Y. — and wish it success. For it 
proposes not merely to invite queries and answers, and so exchange informa- 
tion among those who desire genealogical material that is not accessible in the 
places where they reside, but promises to make efforts to secure answers by 
special correspondents, and to publish these answers. Persons living at county 
seats, who are willing to act as correspondents, are invited to write to the 
editor. The idea of having such is a happy one. We hope that our new 
competitor will tind them, that the answers thus received will all be published, 
and that their number will approximate the number of queries presented, 
If so, then the success of the new magazine should be assured, — certainly it 
will deserve success. 

We believe that pains enough are not taken by genealogical publications 
to secure and present to their readers answers to the questions they publish. 
Would it not be well for their circulation, and well for the cause of genealogy, 
if more attention were given by them to this matter? Is it not time for all con- 
cerned to take this interesting department of genealogical work more ser- 
iously? Hut if this be done then some discrimination should be used in the 
admission of queries. Many of those which are now received and published 
are questions about the unknown ancestry of the first settlers of this country 
and their wives. What possible answers can be expected of such queries 
as this with which The Genealogical Exchange begins its career? " I. Who 
were the parents of Richard Church of Hartford, Conn., 1637? " 


Bvtler, George Henry, a life member of the New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Society and for many years its treasurer, died March 28, 1904, 
at his residence, 064 Fifth Avenue, New York City, aged 62 years. He was 
born May 31, 184I, at Berwick, York County, Maine, and was the eldest son of 
David Grant Butler who was born in 1813, at Berwick, Maine, and lived as a 
retired lumber merchant at Great Falls, N. H. His grandfather, James Butler, 
married Hannah Grant and was the son of Moses Butler of Berwick, a soldier 
of the Revolution and an attorney at law, who married Keziah Nason and was 
the son of Thomas and Mehitabel Butler and grandson of Thomas Butler, born 
ahout 1674. who came to this country before 1698, and settled at South Berwick, 
Maine. He " was one of that numerous family of Butlers descended from the 
house of Ormonde." (See Thomas Butler and His Descendants.) His mother

of the University of Pennsylvania he was appointed, Jan. 9, 1864, as acting

Kineo and Mahaska of the West Gulf Blockading Squadron under Admiral 
Farragut. He was promoted to the rank of acting passed assistant surgeon 
which he held till honorably discharged from the service, Nov. 12, 1868. Dur- 
ing the period of his naval service he availed himself of opportunities which it 

208 Obituary. [July, 

afforded to attend lectures at medical schools in Boston and Baltimore and at 
the New Orleans School of Medicine from which he received the degree of 
Doctor of Medicine in 1867. Upon leaving the navy he came to New York, 
entered Bellevue Hospital Medical College and was graduated with the class 
of 1869. He commenced at once the practise of his profession in New York 
City, which he continued until 1882, when pressed by ill health he retired from 
active practise. 

Dr. Butler was a member of many medical societies including the New 
York Academy of Medicine, the Medical Society of the County of New York, 
the New York Physicians Mutual Aid Association and the New York Chemists 
Association. He was also a member of the Naval Order of the United States, 
the New York Commandery of the Loyal Legion, the Union League Club, the 
American Historical Association, the Sons of the American Revolution, the 
New England Society and the New York Genealogical and Biographical So- 
ciety which he joined in 1877 and was its treasurer, 1881-82, and again from 
1885 until 1892. He was the author of Thomas Butter ana 1 his Descendants, 
and of numerous monographs on medical subjects. He was married June 13, 
1872, to Henrietta L. Lawrence, daughter of Isaac Richardson and Henrietta 
Louise Lawrence. Her mother died while she was an infant and she was 
adopted by her mother's sister, Jane G. Lawrence, and retained her mother's 
name. Her grandfather was the Hon. Samuel Lawrence, son of Major Jon- 
athan Lawrence, both of New York City. 

Carter, Walter Steuben, head of the law firm of Carter, Hughes, 
Rounds and Schurman and a lawyer of national reputation, died of pneumonia, 
June 3, 1904, at his residence in Brooklyn, aged seventy-one years. He was 
born Feb. 24, 1833, at Barkhamsted, Conn., and was the son of Evits and Sarah 
Taylor Carter. His father, who was born at Bristol, Dec. 24, 1806, was the son 
of Noah Andrews Carter of Barkhamsted, Conn., by Lydia Gaylord, daughter 
of Joseph Gaylord, a soldier of the Revolution and a descendant of Dea. Wil- 
liam Gaylord who settled at Windsor, Conn., about 1636. His grandfather was 
the son of Thaddeus Carter, of Wallingford, Conn., and Lucy Andrews, daugh- 
ter of Elisha Andrews of New Haven; grandson of William Carter, of \\ al- 
lingford, and Ann Yale, daughter of Capt. Theophilus Yale of Wallingford; 
and great grandson of Robert Carter, shipbuilder, who came to America from 
Bristol, England, and settled at Guilford, Conn., where he died in 1751. His 
mother was the daughter ofBergt. William Taylor of New Hartford, Conn., a 
soldier of the Revolution, and Abigail Case, and granddaughter of William 
Taylor of New Hartford by his wife, Ruth, daughter of Thomas Rich and 
Mercy Knowles, who was the daughter of Samuel Knowles and Mercy Free- 
tnui, who was the daughter of Major John Freeman and Mary Prince, who 
was the daughter of Gov. Thomas Prince and Patience Brewster, the daughter 
of Elder William Brewster of the Mayflower, 1620. 

He was admitted to the bar at Middletown in 1855, and during his resi- 
dence in that city was a member of the Board of Education. He removed to 
Milwaukee in 1858 where he became a member of the law firm of Carter and 
Whipple and Carter, Pitkin and Davis, and was a United States commissioner 
and a master-in-chancery. He became prominent in Republican politics and 
managed the first election of Matthew H. Carpenter to the United States Sen- 
ate. He compiled the Wisconsin Code of Procedure in 1859, and was elected 
a trustee of Lawrence University in 1865. He was active during the Civil War 
and served as a member of the Christian! Commission, of which it is said that 
he was one of the last four survivors. In 1869 he removed to Chicago and 
founded the law firm of Carter, Becker and Dale. He was burned out in the 
fire of 1871, and the following year he came to New York as the representative 
of the Chicago creditors of the insurance companies that had failed on account 
of the great fire. He remained in New York City and continued in the prac- 
tise of his profession with great success until his death. Among the attorneys 
associated with him as partners before the founding of the present firm were 
the late Leslie W. Russell, Daniel H. Chamberlain, former Governor of South 
Carolina, Major Sherburne B. Eaton, William B. Hornblower, Eugene H. 
Lewis, James Byrne, Paul D. Cravith and Edward F. Dwight who died in 190}. 

I904] Obituary. 209 

No member of the New York Bar took a greater interest in young lawyers than 
be, or did more to assist them in starting upon their professional careers. It 
has been said that mure than two hun. lied lawyers have studied in Mr. Car- 
ter's office. About two years ago a complimentary dinner was given to him at 
which most of them were present to do him honor. 

Mr. Carter did not confine his ai tit ities to his chosen profession. He was 
formerly active in Republican politics in Brooklyn and sers ed for several years 
on its county committee. He took much interest in genealogical studies and 
was an active member of the New York Society oi Mayflower Descendants and 
of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. His knowledge of 
genealogical matters was great and his memory for names and dates and fam- 
ily connections amazing. He was also deeply interested in the patriotic socie- 
ties; was a member of the Society of Colonial Wars, the Sons 01 the American 
Revolution, the Founders and Patriots of America, and himself founded and 
organized the Society of the Settlers and Defenders of America, of which he 
was the first president. He also took much interest in music and art; was one 
of the incorporators of the Brooklyn Institute and for eight years the chairman 
of its department of music. He was the only lay member of the American 
Guild of Organists; was a member of the National Arts and Grolier clubs, and 
his collection of etchings, noteworthy for its Whistlers and Rembrandts, is one 
of the finest in the country. He was a member of the American and State Bar 
associations; of the Union League and Republican clubs of Brooklyn and of 
the Lawyers club of Manhattan, as well as of many societies including the 
New York Historical, the American Historical, the New York Zoological and 
the New England Society. For many years he was vice-president of the board 
of trustees of the New York Avenue Methodist Church of Brooklyn, to which 
in 1890 he presented an organ of sixty speaking stops. He was also a trustee 
of the Methodist Church in Pleasant Valley, Conn., and of Syracuse University. 

Walter S. Carter was married in 1855 to Marie Antoinette Smith, daughter 
of John Cotton Smith of New Hartford, Conn., who died in 1865. By her he 
had four children, two of whom survive him: Dr. Colin S. Carter of New York, 
and Antoinette, wife of Charles E. Hughes of New York. A son, George 
Stuart Carter, died in 1887, and a daughter, Emma, the wife of Rev. Edwin H. 
Dickinson of Buffalo, died last year. In 1867, Mr. Carter married Mary Boyd 
Jones, daughter of Aubray G. Jones, of Frederick, Mi!., who died in 1869. In 
1870 he married Harriet Cook, ilaughter of George C. Cook of Chicago who 
died in 1900. By her he had two sons who survive him, Walter Frederick Car- 
ter, and Leslie Taylor Carter. 

Fitch, Ashbel Parmelee, member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, died May 8, 1904, at his residence in New 'N ork City, 
aged fifty-five years. He was born Oct. 8, 1848, at Mooers, Clinton County, 
N. Y., and was the son of Edward Fitch and Fanny Parmelee, daughter of the 
Rev. Ashbel Parmelee, after whom Mr. Fitch was named. His father was an 
eminent lawyer of New York City, a partner of ex-Gov. Myron H. Clark, and 
was distinguished as an orator and a man of letters. His grandfather, Dr. 
Jahez Fitch, who served on the medical staff in the war of 1812, was the son of 
Capt. Jabez Fitch who served with distinction in the war of the Revolution. 
The latter was a descendant of the Rev. James Fitch, by Priscilla, his second 
wife, daughter of Major John Mason who commanded the colonists of Con- 
necticut in the Pequot war. Rev. James Fitch was the son of Edward Fitch of 
Braintree, England. He came to this country with his mother in 1638, became 
a clergyman of great repute, and was the founder of the City of Norwich, Conn. 

Mr. Fitch received his earlv education in the old Twelfth Street School in 
this city and after a course at Williston Seminary in Easthampton, Mass., spent 
three years at the Universities of Jena and Berlin, Germany, where he acquired 
that knowledge of the German language and character which afterward proved 
to be so potent a factor in his business and political success. L'pon his return 
to America he studied law at Columbia and was admitted to the bar in 1869 at 
the age of twentv-one. His practise was chiefly in corporation law and he be- 
came counsel for several of the leading corporations of the city. His political 
career began with his reception of the Republican nomination for Congress in

the Xllth District in 1884, which he declined on the ground of his not being in 
full sympathy with the doctrine of high protection. In 1886, however, he ac- 
cepted the Republican nomination for the same district and was elected to the 
Lth Congress where he served on the committe on Military Affairs and was 
active in bringing about the repeal of the federal election laws. But his action 
in voting for the Mills Tariff bill took him out of the ranks of the Republican 
party. His speech on the floor of the house in May, 1888, in advocacy of this 
measure was printed for general circulation and more than a million copies 
were distributed. At the following election he was re-elected to Congress from 
the same distrtct as a Democrat and served upon the committee on Foreign 
Affairs. He was re-elected in 1800, and again in 1892, as a Democrat, and his 
majority in the former election was the largest given to any candidate for Con- 
gress in the United States. In 1893 he resigned his seat in Congress having 
been elected Comptroller of the City of N'ew York for four years. His inde- 
pendent course while in this office displeased the dominant powers in Tam- 
many Hall and on the pretext that he had accepted a re-nomination from the 
Republicans his name was dropped from the list of their candidates. In spite 
of his popularity and the esteem in which his administration of the Comptroller- 
ship was held by the business men of the city he was defeated and retired to 
the practise of his profession. 

Mr. Fitch in social life was popular and his cheerfulness and fund of 
humor endeared him to his many friends. He was of a scholarly habit and had 
one of the finest German libraries in the city. He was a frequent contributor 
to the journals of the city and during the attacks of gout, from which he suffered 
severely, occupied himself with literary work. He was one of the most prom- 
inent members of the Manhattan Club, and was a member also of the Metro- 
politan, Lawyers, New York Yacht, St. Nicholas, Ardsley, Germania, Lieder- 
kranz, Arion, and Press clubs. He was President of the Franklin County 
Society and a member of the Sons of the Revolution, New England Society, 
Municipal Art Society, New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, the 
Dunlap Society and the Chamber of Commerce. He was a director of the 
American Light and Traction Company, the Bowling Green Trust Company, 
the Germania Bank, and the Trust Company of America of which at one time 
he was the president. 

Ashbel P. Fitch married Nov. 12, 1874, Elizabeth A. Cross, daughter of 
George Cross of Morrisville, N. Y., a descendant of Gov. William Bradford of 
Plymouth Colony, who survives him. All of his children are living: Ashbel P. 
Fitch, Jr.; Morton C. Fitch; Littleton H. Fitch; Elizabeth Fitch, wife of Harold

York City, and Miss Doris Fitch. 

Grace, William Russell, died of pneumonia at his residence in New 
York, March 21, 1904, aged seventy-one years. He was born May 10, 1832, at 
Riverston, County Cork, Ireland, and was the son of James Grace of Sheffield 
House, Queens County, a gentleman of means who severely compromised his 
fortune by his generosity duriug the Irish famine of 1847, by providing work 
upon his estates for the people of the surrounding district. James Grace was 
the son of John Grace who was a member of the Grace family of Gracefield, 
Queens County, being the fifth in descent from the Hon. Oliver Grace, who was 
in Parliament and settled at Gracefield. Hon. Oliver Grace was the son of 
William Grace and grandson of Gerald Grace of Ballylinch Castle in County 
Kilkenny who was killed during the wars with the Commonwealth and a con- 
fiscation of his estates to the extent of 17,000 acres followed. Gerald Grace 
was the fourth in descent from Sir Oliver Grace, Knt, of Ballylinch Castle, the 
second son of Sir lohn Le Gns, Baron of Courtstown and Lord of Grace's 
Country, County Kilkenny, who was the twelfth in descent from William Fitz 
Raymond, the first Baron of Courtstown, son of the celebrated Raymond Fitz 
William, surnamed " Le Gros," of the family of the Fitz-Geralds, who assisted 
Richard " Strongbow," Earl of Pembroke, in the subjugation of Ireland in 1170. 
Mr. Grace's mother was Ellen Mary Russell, daughter of Michael Russell of 
Ninagh in County Limerick.

remained in New York City. Returning home he accompanied his father to 
Callao, Peru, whither the latter went with the hope of recuperating his unpaired 
resources. The father soon returned to Ireland, but the son entered the com- 
mercial house of John Bryce of Callao and began his remarkable career of 
business prosperity. Before he was twento-one he became a partner in that 
shipping house, which then became Bryce, Grace & Co., and is now W. K. 
Grace & Co. of New York, with brandies in London, San Francisco, Callao, 
Valparaiso and other ports of the South Pacific coast. This house, which has 
since been incorporated, is one of the most important and influential commer- 
cial concerns in the world and controls the snipping business of the western 
coast of South America. It aided the Peruvian Government in the conversion 
of its debt of $40,000,000; and in behalf of the foreign creditors of Peru under- 
took the settlement of their claims against that government. Through its 
efforts an adjustment was effected that involved the enormous sum of $250,000,- 
000. Mr. Grace founded his shipping house in New York in 1868 and has ever ■ 
since resided in this country. 

Mr. Grace was twice Mayor of New York City, and was regarded as an 
independent and reform Mayor. The first time, in 1880, he was elected as the 
candidate of a united democracy when his name was on a list suggested by 
Irving Hall to Tammany and was promptly selected out of a dozen names by 
the latter organization. While Mayor he took an active interest in the street 
cleaning struggle and co-operating with the committee of twenty-one obtained 
the passage of the Street-Cleaning-bill which has done so much to improve 
the condition of the streets of the city. While he recognized no factions in his 
party he appointed none but Democrats to office. His experience as Mayor 
gave Mr. Grace an insight into the difficulty of conducting a business-like ad- 
ministration while a debtor to political organizations for his nomination and 
when he again accepted a nomination for Mayor it had to come from an in- 
dependent source. In 1884, he accepted the nomination of the Citizen's 
committee, which was afterward indorsed by the County Democracy, 
and was elected, defeating both the Tammany and Republican candidates. 
His second term as Mayor was less eventful than the first, but he retired from 
office with the reputation of a clean and honest official and an independent 
Democrat. His administration was generally recognized as advantageous to 
the welfare of the city. 

Mr. Grace was prominent in the work of the Catholic Church. He was the 
founder of the Grace Institute on Sixtieth Street near Amsterdam Avenue 
which educates young women in domestic sciences and occupations that will 
afford them the means of self-support, and which is entirely supported by his 
familv. He was also the President of the Sevilla Home for Children. During 
the famine of 1870 in Ireland he contributed one-fourth of the stores and per- 
sonally took charge of the despatch of the steamer Constellation which carried 
a cargo of food to the sufferers. Socially, Mr. Grace was popular and his gen- 
iality, spontaneity and loyalty brought him a host of friends. He belonged to 
the Metropolitan, Manhattan, Lawyers, Reform, Catholic clubs and to the 
Liederkranz. He was also a member of the Chamber of Commerce as well as 
of the New York Historical, the New York Zoological, the American Geo- 
graphical, and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Societies. 

William R. Grace was married Sept. II, 1850, to Lillias Gilchrist, daughter 
of George W. Gilchrist, a ship-builder of Thomaston, Maine, who survives him. 
Their children are: Alice, wife of Albert F. D'Oench; Joseph P.; Lillias, wife 
of George Edward Kent; Louise Nathalie, and William R. Grace, Jr.

Pennell, Mrs. Sarah Whitlock Bonnett, a member of the New 
York Genealogical and Biographical Society since 1894, died Feb. 1, 1904, at 
Viareggio, Italy, aged seventy years. She was born Aug. 30, 1833, in New 
York City and was the daughter of Daniel and Margaret Brown Bonnett, both 
of whom were also born in New York City. The first of the Bonnett family in 
this Country was Daniel Bonnett, born in 1665, at Thorigne, in Poitou, France, 
who went to Bristol, England in 1690, and after a residence there of ten years 
came to America and settled with his family, in 1700, at New Rochelle, N. Y. 
His son, David, born at Bristol, England, came to New York and in 1720 mar- 
ried Patronella Bouchet (n£e Van de Water), and their descendants continued 
to reside in New York until after the time of Mrs. Pennell's birth. Htr mother 
was the daughter of William and Sarah Monell Whitlock. Her grandfather, 
William Whitlock, was a descendant of Thomas Whitlock, a pioneer settler of 
Monmouth County, N. J., who claimed rights there from the year 1664: was a 
member of the Gravesend colony in 1665, and had a share in the settlement of 
Middletown, N. J. under the Monmouth Patent in 1667. 

Mrs. Pennell was married to the Rev. George Caspar Pennell of the Epis- 
copal Church. He was the son of Richard Pennell, M.D., by his wife, Mary 
Hannh Schroepel, both of the City of New York. He died in 1882 at Dead- 
wood, N. D., and was buried in the church-yard of St. Mark's Church, New 
York. Mrs. Pennel left two children: George Caspar and Mary Augusta Pen- 
nell, now residents of New York City. 


A regular monthly meeting of the Society was held on Friday evening, 
April 8, 1904. President Evans announced the loss by death of the following 
members since the last meeting of the Society: — Mrs. Sarah Whitlock Bonnett

interest in the welfare of the Society and were often in attendance at our 

Mr. Clarence Winthrop Bowen, First Vice-President of the Society read a 
paper entitled "Unpublished Papers of Baron Van Closen of Rochambeau"s 

In introducing the subject Mr. Bowen described the rinding, condition and 
the contents of these original journals. 

Baron Van Closen was a native of Bavaria, born Aug 18, 1755, entered the 
French Military Service as a Captain of the Regiment Royal Deux Fonts in 
1780 and on the arrival of the French in this country became an Aide to 
Rochambeau. His chief service was in Virginia prior to the Yorktown capit- 
ulation, and he bore important dispatches between Washington and De Grasse, 
&c. On his return to France he was created Colonel, a Chevalier of the 
Legion of Honor and later became a member of the Society of the Cincinnati. 
Mr. Bowen stated that these MSS. would be shown in the U. S. Government 
exhibit at the World's Fair, St. Louis, and he hoped that they might event- 
ually be permanently placed in the Congressional Library at Washington, He 
gave a description of the contents of various documents and more particularly 
extracts from the two volume journal. At the close of the lecture pictures 
gathered by Van Closen in the United States, also important letters, etc., were 
shown on the screen. Mr. Bowen gave interesting accounts from the journal 
of his journeys to see Washington on the Hudson, De Grasse on the Ville de 
Paris, Cornwallis at Yorktown; also of the siege and capitulation of Yorktown, 
his admiration for the American troops and of General Washington, and the 
departure of Rochambeau and the return of his army to France, etc. 

Alter the paper, President Evans made some appropriate remarks, allud- 
ing to the advantage gained from such knowledge and tendered to Mr. Bowen 
the grateful thanks of the Society. He then called on Col. Asa Bird Gardiner 
to make a few remarks: Col. Gardiner spoke of the high class of the French 
nobility who came to this country, that they were a galaxy of young nobles, 
and were sent over in expectation of a very much larger body of troops 
coming than were able to follow. He also alluded to the prominent parts these 
same men took later in the history of France and that it was through them 
that the great principles of Anglo Saxon liberty were introduced into France 
which are the backbone of the present Republic. 

At the close of these remarks, the Society adjourned to the Library where 
the members and their guests were served with refreshments. 

A regular meeting of the Society was held Friday evening, May 17, 1004,

Younijs; Mr. John B. Pine, 63 Wall St., New York City, proposed by Thomas 
G. Evans; Mr. Henry Dudley Teetor, Park Ave. Hotel, New York City, pro- 
posed by Mrs F. E, Youngs. The resignation was also reported of A. R. Me 
Michael, M. D., to take effect as of Dec. 31st, 1904. President Evans then 
introduced the speaker of the evening, Mr. Frank Warren Crane, subject: 
"Historic Trees of America." He opened the lecture by reference to the 
great number of trees which had been planted by the school children of New- 
York during the last few years. Among other more interesting trees mention- 
ed were the following: — The Liberty Tree of Boston; The Liberty Pole of New 
York; The Liberty Tree of New Brunswick, N. ].; Washington Elm of Cam- 
bridge, Mass. — under which he took command of the American Army; Boston 
Elm on Boston Common; The Charter Oak at Hartford, Conn., which was 33

hundred years old; The old tree in Wall St., near the old City Hall; The 
thirteen Hamilton Trees at I42d St., and the old trees in the vicinity and in 
Westchester, Pelham, Bronx, Kings Bridge, Prospect Park, etc. Finally he 
devoted his attention to the famous California Big Trees, and exhibited con- 
trasting pictures to show their enormous size. All of the foregoing and many 
more were finely illustrated by stereopticon views. At the close of the paper 
Mr. Isaac Townsend Smith arose and spoke regarding the death of our late 
lamented member, Dr. Holcombe, reference to whom had been made at a 
previous meeting, and requested that a committee be appointed by the chair to 
draw up appropriate resolutions which should appear in the next number of 
the Record. On motion adjourned to the Library for refreshments.

The Order of the Founders and Patriots of America, Register. 
1902. Published by authority of the General Committee of the Order. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 234. 

The Roll of Associates in this volume is especially useful, as each step in 
the member's ancestry is given. The records are completed by brief biograph- 
ical notices of the Founder Ancestors, and in another part, the Patriot Ances- 
tors. These are all alphabetically arranged. The standard of the Order is 
printed in color, and there are excellent portraits. 

Ancestors and Descendants of Jonathan Hosmer, Jr., 1600 to 
1902. Compiled and published by George David Read Hubbard. Brooklyn, 
N. Y. Quarto cloth, pp. too. Price $3.00. 

Whenever a genealogy departs from the beaten path of orderly arrange- 
ment, one approaches it with some misgivings. In the present instance a new 
plan has been well carried out. The generations of each branch of the family 
are grouped, and the difference between them shown by changes of type. By 
good management in the shape of the book a great deal can thus be seen in 
each page at a glance, especially as the genealogy proper is simply an array 
of dates and names. There are a number of biographical notes and pages, 
with a great many portraits. The ancestry of many of the Hosmer consorts is 
traced, and a good index, with descendant daughters indexed under maiden 
and married names, renders all this information readily accessible. Blank 
pages are bound in for personal records.

ing the whole or part of a volume, according to its numbers. The paging of 
each family is consecutive. Anyone finding mistakes in these records, or hav- 
ing additional records of any family in this book, is earnestly requested to 
communicate the same to J. Howard Morse, 288 Fairfield Avenue, Hartford,

The author has not attempted to make this little book more than a simple 
straightforward relation of the story of Richfield, but the chapters on County

Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers will be found of genealogical value.

The Messages and Proclamations of the Governors of Iowa. 
Compiled and Edited by Benjamin F. Shambaugh, A.M., Ph.D. Volume V. 
Published by the State Historical Society of Iowa. Iowa City, Iowa. 1904.

This volume includes the messages and proclamations of Governors John 
Henry Gear (1878-1882) and Buren Robinson Sherman (1882-1886.) Governor 
Gear was of Massachusetts and Connecticut ancestry. His administration 
may fairly be described as a business administration, for everywhere during 
his administration a business character was stamped upon public affairs. 
Governor Sherman was born in Ontario County, N. Y.; and served in the Civil 
War with credit and distinction in the volunteer army. Each Governor served 
two terms.

History oi New Paltz, New York, and Its Old Families (from 
1678 to 1820), including the Huguenot Pioneers and others who settled in New 
Paltz previous to the Revolution. Ralph Lefevre. Albany. Fort Orange 
Press. 1903. 8vo, clofh, pp. \IV-f593. 

This long-looked-for bunk found its welcome awaiting it, and with gooi 
reason, New Paltz being the mother settlement of many old Hudson River 
towns. It was one of the few Huguenot settlements in this country, and for 
half a century was ruled in spiritual matters by the church, and in temporal 
affairs by the Dusine, twelve men chosen annually by a viva voce vote, whose 
government began in 1728. This government by the Dusine has no parallel in 
the Colonial history of America. They had power to act and set in order all 
common affairs, to divide lands in the Paltz patent by lot, and to give title by 
parole, without deed, to impose fines, and in fact to exercise to some extent 
judicial and legislative powers, until in 1785 the town was incorporated in the 
state government, and the grants and petitions of the Dusine were confirmed. 
The patentees of New Paltz were Louis Dubois, Christian Doyo, Abraham

Crespell, Abraham Dubois, Hugo Freer, Isaac Dubois and Simon Lefevre, 
whose descendants are traced in this book. Many interesting recollections of 
old people are rehearsed, illustrating old times and manners. The book is 
pleasing in its make-up, and has 63 pages of index, besides a chapter outline. 

Genealogy of the Fowlers in England and America. By Whar- 
ton Dickinson. 8vo, cloth, pp. 65. Edition limited to 35 copies. New York. 
T. A. Wright. 1904. 

A clear and concise record of the origin and history of the family in 
England in its various branches down to the period of the appearance of 
William Fowler in Conn., Joseph and Richard in Long Island and East Chester, 
and Henry in Rhode Island and East Chester. It fully clears up the am- 
biguities and errors of former publications as regards the relationship of these 
four men and their immediate descendants. An important feature is the " List 
of Fowlers in the Revolution " and "Early Fowler Marriages." Mr. Dickinson 
has adhered strictly to the English method of genealogy as in Burke, Foster 
and others. The book is in large type printed on heavy deckle edge paper, 
untrimmed, handsomely bound, and contains a complete index. 

Ecclesiastical Records, State of New York. Published by the 
State under the supervision of Hugh Hastings, State Historian. Vols. Ill, IV. 
Albany. J. B. Lyon Company, State Printers. 1902. 8vo, cloth, pp. XXXII + 
1443-2308, and L IX +2309- 3 146. 

Carrying on the valuable work which Mr. Hastings is doing for our own 
State of New York, these two volumes bring the history of all tin- religious 
bodies of New York State down to the year 1750. The books consist of classi- 
fied documents, without comment, and thus far with only a subject index. This 
State sets a noble example to its neighbors in its generous printing of valuable 
records, and it is to be hoped that Mr. Hastings will not be restricted in any 
hopes or plans he may have for future work along these lines. 

A Volume Relating to the Early History of Boston, Contain- 
ing the Aspinwall Notarial Records from 1^44 to 1651. Boston. 
Municipal Printing Office. 1003. 8vo, cloth, pp. X-f 45s. 

There is a great deal of genealogical information in this volume. In fact 
each page has its especial interest and value, from bills and acknowledgments, 
administrations and indentures to " cocquetts & certificates of goods imported 
and exported." 

Bf.ckwith Notes, with Some Account of Allied Families. Num- 
ber Four. Elkhorn, Wisconsin. 1903. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 58. 

This number of Notes concern itself, first with the scheme of English an- 
cestry as rather generally accepted by American Beckwiths; and, second, with 
some peculiarities of the work generally accepted as a genealogy of the Beck- 
withs of Connecticut colony, — descendants of Matthew Beckwith. 


2 I 8 Book Notices. [July, 

History and Genealogy of the Mead Family of Fairfield 
County, Connecticut, Eastern New York, Western Vermont and 
Western Pennsylvania, from A. D. 1 180 to 1900. Spencer P. Mead, LL.B. 
New York. The Knickerbocker Press. 1001. 8vo, cloth, pp. IV+471. 

The first quarter of this handsome work is taken up with family sketches, 
war records and anecdotes, the Meads being especially rich in Revolutionary 
experiences. The most famous branch of the family is in Greenwich, Conn., 
where they form so large a part of the population that the story goes it is safe 
for a stranger to address anyone at a venture by the name of Mead. If he is 
not a Mead by name he is probably one by descent. Having told the family 
history in a most interestiug way in the first part of the book, Mr. Mead de- 
votes the remainder to unadorned genealogy. The first Mead ancestor had 
two sons, Joseph and John, from the latter of whom come the Greenwich 
Meads. The family records are arranged under the page headings of "The 
Joseph Line" and "The John Line," which later are subdivided, as, for in 
stance, "The John Line — John (2) Branch." This arrangemeut would be much 
better appreciated by the student had not this fine work been handicapped by 
an insufficient index. 

Some Descendants of John Moore of Sudbury, Mass. By Ethel 
Stanwood Bolton. 8vo, boards, pp. 22. Boston, 1904. 

This is a reprint from the New England Register and contains a record of 
five generations from John Moore who immigrated to Sudbury, Mass., prior to 
1642, arranged in the Register plan. 

Family Records of the Descendants of James Wait of Rorts- 
mout, R. I. By John Cassan Wait. 8vo, cloth, pp. 53. New York, 1904. 
Price, Si. 00 

This fragment of the general history of the Wait family is published by 
the author as his contribution to what he hopes may some day become a com- 
plete genealogy of the Wait family. It is a quaint and interesting little vol- 
ume, beautifully printed and bound, and ought to stimulate others to gather 
similar records and print them. 

Descendants of Jonathan Towle, 1747-1822, of Hampton and 
Pittsfield, N. H. By Alvin F. Towle. l2mo, cloth, pp. 312. Boston. C. 
W. Calkins & Co. 1903. 

This exceptionally handsome volume is arranged upon a somewhat novel 
plan, divided into four sections for greater convenience. First there is a series 
of six tables, which give in condensed form the main facts relating to Jonathan 
Towle and his five children. Part II contains the historical chapters; Part III 
the genealogy proper, and Part IV a copious index. Over 100 portraits beauti- 
fully engraved and printed, together with facsimile copies of wills and old 
letters, and numerous maps and prints of historic buildings, comprise the illus- 

Descendants of Francis Le Baron of Plymouth, Mass. Compiled 
by Mary Le Baron Stockwell. Boston. T. R. Marvin & Son, Printers. 1904. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 521. 

This book is compiled by an experienced genealogist, and is an excellent 
example of modern methods, with its simple and clear arrangement of factSi 
its sixty pages of very satisfactory index, and its fine illustrations, of which 
Dielman's Colonial Wedding is the frontispiece. The name of Francis Le 
Baron carries with it the perfume of old romance, and one sees again the little 
child surrounded with mystery, the young man, fugitive in a strange land, and 
at last the man in early middle life, dying with his secret untold. Dr. Le Baron 
left many descendants bearing famous names, among them those of Abbott, 
Adams, Alden, Bartlett, Boutelle, Bovee, Bowen, Bradford, Brewster, Budd, 
Carver, Chase, Chandler, Church, Clark, Crocker, Davis, Doten, Goodwin, 
Howland, Morse, Perrv, Putnam, Robbins, Russell, Shurtleff, Stanton, Sturgis, 
Thacher, Whiting, Wilder, Winslow and Wright. In fact, few New England 
names of prominence fail to appear in the index.

Suffolk Manorial Families, being the County Visitations and other

Part 4. Privately printed. Exeter. William Pollard S: Co , Ltd., Printers 
and Lithographers. 1902. So,. F. pamphlet, pp. 121-160. 

This valuable publication contains notes on Whiting of Hadleigh, Bright 
of St. Edmundsbury, anil Barrett of Westhall, with pedigrees and wills. 

Suffolk Deeds, Liber XIII. Boston. Rockwell and Churchill Press. 
1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. 345. 

This is another of the results of the public-spiritedness of Massachusetts. 
Liber XIII begins with the deed from Jeremiah Beale and Sarah, his wife, to 
Daniel Cushing, which was entered for record July 21, 1683. It ends with the 
deed from Janus Howard and Abigail, his wife, to John Moore, which was 
entered May 24, 1686. Mr. Thos. t . Temple, Register of Deeds, assisted by 
Miss A. Grace Small, is most ably carrying on the work so long conducted by 
the late John T. Hassam, Esq. 

Commander-in-Chief's Guard, Revolutionary War. Carlos E. 
Godfrey, M. D. Washington, D. C. Stevenson-Smith Company. 1904. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 302. Price $5.00. 

Nothing to be compared with the thoroughness of this work has ever been 
done to commemorate the body of picked men, popularly and erroneously 
known as " Washington's Body Guard." Some idea of the scope ot this 
history may he gathered from the table of contents, which covers the History 
of the Guard, Rosters of the Infantry and Cavalry Guards, Records of the 
Officers and Men, Elijah Fisher's Diary, Calendar for Years 1776 to 1783, and 
five pages of references. The illustrations are numerous and valuable, con- 
sisting of portraits and facsimiles, amongst the latter being the signatures of 
the members of the organization. Of exceptional value to the family historian 
is the part containing the records of officers and men, covering 161 pages, and 
including, besides their military achievements, much genealogical information. 
The author has spent much time and care upon this branch of the work, in the 
endeavor to make it as complete and authoritative as possible, and with the 
facilities placed at his disposal by the late Major-Genera! William S. Strvkcr, 
of Trenton, N. ]., Brigadier-General M. I. Ludington, Quartermaster-General 
of the United States Army, Hon. William Olin, Secretary of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts, and others, he has been able to produce a work which will 
be recognized as the standard authority on this interesting subject. 

Civil and Military List of Rhode Island, 1800-1850. A list of all 
Officers elected by the General Assembly from 1800 to 1850. Also, all Officers 
in Revolutionary War, appointed by Continental Congress, and in the Regular 
Armv and Navy from Rhode Island, to 1850, including Volunteer Officers in 
War of 1812 and Mexican War, and all Officers in Privateer Service during 
Colonial and Revolutionary Wars, and the War of 1812. Compiled from the 
records by Joseph Jencks Smith. Providence. Preston & Rounds Co. I901. 
Quarto cloth, pp. \'l-r-7oq. Price, $7.50. 

This is the second volume of this valuable work, the previous one being 
devoted to the period from 1647 to 1800. The military records are outlined in 
the sub-title, but the civil list is also of interest, and gives the names of Speak- 
ers and Clerks of the House, Justices of the Supreme Court, Common Pleaa 
and General Sessions, Commissioners, Senators in Congress, and others. The 
public records concerning privateers are very incomplete, and only names of 
vessel and captain, in many cases, can be found, but all mentioned 111 this 
compilation received commissions from this Colony or State. From 1702 to 
1709 a few privateers were engaged; but during the Spanish War, 1740-49, and 
also during the French War, 1755-63. many officers were engaged, whose 
names will be found in this work. In 1759 one-fifth of the population was en- 
gaged in privateer service, and one-seventh of the remaining were in the land 
service of the King. So full of valor was this small colony that it is easy to 
see why Mr. Smith's fine volumes could only include the names of officers. 


2 20 Book Notices. [July. 

The Ancestors and Descendants of Isaac Alden and Irene 
Smith, his Wife (1599-1903.) Harriet Chapin Fielding. 1903. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. 144. 

Isaac Alden was in the sixth generation from John Alden of the Mayflower, 
and was born at Ashfield, Mass. After his marriage he removed to Oneida 
County, New York, where all his children, ten in number, were born. Be- 
ginning with so late a generation as a practical starting point, Mrs. Fielding 
has succeeded in collecting full and interesting data concerning the members 
of the family. The second part of the work treats of the ancestors of the wife 
of Isaac Alden, Irene Smith, whose first American forefather was Rev. Henry 
Smith, who arrived with his wife Dorothy in Plymouth Colony in 1636-7. The 
volume is a good contribution to Mayflower genealogy. 

Genealogy of the Descendants of John Walker of Wigton, 
Scotland, with records of a few allied families. Also war records and some 
fragmentary notes pertaining to the hisiory of Virginia, 1600-1902. Emma 
Siggins White. Kansas City, Mo. Press of Tiernan-Dart Printing Co. 1902. 
8vo, cloth, pp. XXX+722. 

This volume contains in its preface sketches of Rev. Joseph Allein and 
Rev. John Rutherfurd, ancestors of the Walker family in Scotland and Eng- 
land, and the body of the work begins with the Rutherford-Allein marriage, 
from which came a daughter who married John Walker of Wigton. The book 
contains an unusual amount af biographical matter, for which the compiler is 
faithful in giving authorities, This advantage, and that of a seventy-seven 
page index, will be greatly appreciated by the reader. The book is strong in 
war records and many historical notes pertaining to Virginia, while sketches of 
allied families form an important part of the work. It is a very desirable ad- 
dition to Virginia genealogies. 

A Documentary History of the Dutch Congregation of Oyster 
Bay, Queens County, Island of Nassau (now Long Island,) Pamphlet 
No. 5. Henry A. Stoutenburgh. Knickerbocker Press, N. Y. 1904. 8vo, 
pamphlet, pp. 293-423. Price, 50 cents. 

The publication of this work should he strongly supported by the descend- 
ants of Oyster Bay families, both as a matter of local and family pride, and as 
an encouragement to others to publish similar records. The plan of issuing 
this history in separate parts at a moderate price places it within the reach of 
all. The present number carries the names from Luyster through Nostrand. 
The heads of families are alphabetically arranged, but for purposes of cross- 
reference we hope Mr. Stoutenburgh will crown his valued work with a good 

The Ancestor. A Quarterly Review of County and Family History, 
Heraldry and Antiquities. Number IV. London. Archibald Constable & 
Co., Ltd. Philadelphia. J. P. Lippincott Company. I903. Quarto Boards, 
pp. 266. 

This sumptuous quarterly continues to be the largest and handsomest of 
all the genealogical periodicals published. It abounds in trenchant satire, 
common sense, and detestation of all that debases heraldry and makes that 
noble art distrusted by many. These qualities are refreshing, and make the 
Ancestor eminently readable. It is further enriched by a number of fine 
illustrations. Amongst other articles, some of especial interest are the Hugue- 
not Families in England, North Country Wills, and Family History in the 
Public Records. 

Report of the Third Reunion of the Grant Family Association 
of East Windsor Hill and Hartford, Conn October 27 and 28, 1903. 
The 302nd Anniversary of the Birth of Matthew Grant. Edited by Arthur

In addition to the usual reports, this pamphlet contains some Grant and 
Humphreys genealogy.

General Assembly. James N. Arnold. Providence. Narragansett Historical 
Publishing Co. 1903. Quarto cloth, pp. LXXXV+542. 

This invaluable volume contains not only death notices, but many obituar- 
ies as well. The fulness of the notes attached to the announcement ol the 
death is of the greatest possible assistance in identifying the individual, besidl - 
giving much information hitherto practically unknown, and it is to be hoped 
that Mr. Arnold will receive every encouragement to continue his splendid 
work, and to do it as thoroughly as he desires. 

Wynkoop Genealogy in the United States of America. Richard 
Wynkoop. New York. The Knickerbocker Press. 1904. ^ 

The index in this volume appeals at once to the reader, both from its 
position in the front of the book, and from its remarkable completeness. It 
gives the Christian name, the title, if any, the wife or husband, or if unmarried, 
the birth and death dates, and the personal number. The index is an excellent 
indication — to pun a little, — of the value of a book of this nature, showing the 
clearheadedness and experience of the compiler, for no one who works contin- 
ually amongst books can fail to understand its absolute necessity. The mater- 
ial used in this genealogy has been collected during nearly sixty years. Two 
experimental volumes have been printed, but none since 1878, therefore this 
book is the standard work on the family. The line descends from Cornelius 
Wynkoop and his wife, Maria Janse Langedyck of Rensselaerwick and Esopus. 

Memorial of the Family of Forsyth of. Fronsac. Fr£de>ic 
Gregory Forsyth de Fronsac. Boston. Press of S. J. Parkhill & Co. 1903. 
8vo, cloth, pp. VT+90. Price, $3.50. 

The Forsyth family is herein traced to the year 768 in France, since then 
appearing in Scotland, the United States and Canada. This volume contains 
genealogies of the different branches, biographies of leading members, and a 
good deal of miscellaneous information of interest to the family. An account 
ot the founding of the Aryan Order of St. George of the Empire, a reorganiza- 
tion of various royalist orders, is given herein, with an account of Captain For- 
syth, Viscount de Fronsac, its first Chancellor; an Order whose present head 
is the Due de Veragua. 

Family Records. Being some account of the ancestry of my father 
and mother, Charles William Woolsey and Jane Eliza Newton. Printed for 
their grandchildren. Eliza (Newton) Woolsey How-land. New Haven. Tuttle, 
Morehouse & Taylor Press. 1900. 8vo, boards, pp. 256. 

Although full of genealogical information, this book is not compiled upon 
the usual lines, but is a delightfully discursive account of forefathers and 
mothers, their homes, associations and family ways. The ancestors themselves 
were picturesque people, for Mistress Alice Southworth, John Howland, the 
"Tangier" Smiths and the Dosoris Woolseys figure among them. The make- 
up of the volume is attractive, and the the illustrations are unusually interest- 
ing. The student will probably read more in this book than he intended when 
he took it up, but it will be to his advantage. 

Southwold. The English Home of Rev. John Yonges, of Southold, Long 
Island, New York. Lucy Dubois Akerly. New York. Press of T. A. Wright. 
1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. it. Price, Si. 10. 

This beautiful reprint is from the Record. It is a thorough and careful 
study of the English history of the Youngs family of Southold and Oyster Bay 
and allied families, and besides the latest and most authoritative facts con- 
cerning the wives of the Rev. John Youngs, develops some entirely new 
matters. The accuracy and good judgment of this compiler make her work of 
great value. 

22 2 Book Notices. [July, 

A Complete Genealogy of the Van Hoosear Family, embracing all 
descendants of Kinear Van Hoosear, an officer in the Revolutionary Army, 
and a resident of Norwalk, Weston, Conn.; Ballston, N. Y.; and Wilton, Conn. 
David Hermon Van Hoosear. Norwalk, Conn. Printed for the author. 1902, 
8vo, cloth, pp. 96. 

In this genealogy the author traces the descendants of Van Hoosear who 
was probably born in Holland before 1736. His son, Rinear, is the officer re- 
ferred to in the sub-title, and of him there are several pages of well-referenced 
biography, and a facsimile signature. The compiler has succeeded in obtain- 
ing a good deal of general information about most of the members of his fam- 
ily who reached maturity. There is a good index, giving the personal number 
instead of page reference.

Magazine devoted to the Interests of John White of Wenham and Lancaster,

per year; single copies, 25 cents. 

The present number contains a portrait of Whiting Gates, Royal Ancestry 
of John Prescott, continued, English Records, White Family Quarterly, Family 
Reunion, Corrections and Additions and Queries. One of the objects of this 
Quarterly is to print the branches which could not be found when the first and 
second volumes were printed, but which rightly belonged in them; and for 
which there is not room in the third volume yet in press. 

The Connecticut Magazine. Vol. VIII, No. III. Edited by Francis 
Trevelyn Miller. Hartford. 1004. 

This number is an Indian memorial, and contains within an artistic cover 
articles on The Passing of the Redman, the First American, The Happy Hunt- 
ing Ground, Aboriginal Media for Expressing Artistic Impulses, and the In- 
terpretation of Life into Song. Other subjects are interestingly treated, and 
the magazine is well illustrated. The monthly articles on Connecticut towns 
are too much on the county history order to be of especial value to any but 
those interested in modern manufactures. 

A History of the William Dean Family of Cornwall, Conn., and 
Canfield, Ohio, containing the direct descent from Thomas Dean of Con-

ants. B. S. Dean, Hiram, Ohio, and J. E. Dean, Pittsburg, Pa. Press of the 
F. W. Roberts Co. Cleveland, Ohio. 1003. 8vo, Pamphlet, pp. 69. 

No attempt is here made to give a history of the present generation of 
Deans. A table of the direct descent from Thomas to William Dean; a com- 
plete table of William Dean's descendants; brief biographies of his children, 
together with a fuller account of his life before and after the imigration to 
Ohio, comprise the substance of this pamphlet, which has the unusual virtue 
of a good index. The writer will esteem it a favor to be put on the track of 
any further family records, published or unpublished.

Who's Who in New York covers the local field in the same manner that 
its predecessors cover the country or the world. It is a very convenient con- 
temporaneous biography, containing nearly 3500 names, alphabetically ar- 
ranged, amongst which may be found every army or navy officer bom in or ap- 
pointed from New York and now serving, all the Congressmen from the State, 
State Senators and Judges, and all Ambassadors, Ministers and Consuls ap- 
pointed from New York. The appendix is composed of an index to professions 
and occupations of men and women, biographical sketches of whom appear in 
this volume.

Dodge Genealogy. Descendants of Tristram Dodge. Theron Royal 
Woodward. Chicago. Lanward Publishing Co. 1904. Quarto, half morocco, 
pp. 233. Price, >5.oo. 

One cannot help noticing, as a distinctive mark of this genealogy, its 

Ccculiar modernity. It is handsome in appearance, with its scarlet leather 
inding, and its well printed pages with deckle edges. The contents bear the 
same hall-mark, for amongst other matters of interest there are lists of Rev- 
olutionary soldiers and pensioners, and we find a fifty page index, in four parts, 
excellently done by Mrs. Estelle (Clark) Woodward. The work treats of the 
I >'"lge family in general, Long Island Dodges, Jeremiah Dodge of East Had- 
dam and his descendants, related Dodges whose connection has not been 
found, Dodges in England and in Beverly, Mass., and others. There are 26 
portraits and other illustrations. 

This family seems to have been of a strongly original turn of mind. John 
Adams Dodge invented the first sewing machine, in the year 1818. Elder 
Dodge, becoming too old to get into his wagon, had constructed a very peculiar 
looking carriage, built close to the ground, and suited to his infirmities. He 
continued traveling and preaching to the end of his life. Ossian Euclid Dodge 
was the first to take a concert troupe overland to San Francisco. Col. Henry 
Dodge commanded the first U. S. military expedition to the Rocky Monntains 
via the Platte, returning via the Arkansas in 183$ Nehemiah Dodge invented 
the feathering paddle for steamboats. Daniel 1 ' ■dge was the inventor of 
machinery for the manufacture of horseshoe nails, and his great grandfather, 
John Dodge, was the inventor of cut nails with heads, and certain tools for 
for their manufacture. Many other instances of originality and ability might 
be cited, illustrating the excellent mental gifts of this notable family.

A Trilogy of Appreciation.* 

By Henry Reed Stiles, M.D. 

Dr. William Frederic Holcombe, whose name stands upon 
our Society's records as one of its seven founders, was the 
son of Augustine Holcombe, sixth in descent from Thomas, one 
of the early settlers of Windsor, Conn., and was born at Sterling, 
Mass., on the 2d of April, 1827. He was educated at Williston 
Seminary, Easthampton, Mass., and after a hard and varied ex- 
perience of life in his boyhood, f secured by force of his own in- 
domitable will a medical education, and graduated M.D. from 
the old Albany (N. Y.) Medical College, under the especial 
tuition and favor of its distinguished founder and president, 
Prof. Alden March. 

Coming to New York City, he with rare foresight, took up the 

* During the winter of 1900-01, the writer of this note succeeded after a 
solicitation extending over several years, in obtaining from Dr. Holcombe a 
full narrative of the facts and events of his life, professional and otherwise, 
from which was compiled (and approved by the Doctor), a biography for use, 
in the event of his decease, in the pages of the Record. Unfortunately, how- 
ever, in the circumstances which immediately preceded his somewhat unex- 
pected demise, this manuscript was lost, or more probably mislaid, so that 
when called for it could not be found. In this dilemma, we have been obliged 
to avail ourselves of such material as was available, viz.: a most admirable 
"Characterization" by Rev, Theodore I. Holcombe, a cousin of the Doctor's; 
an appreciative article in the American Ail Journal of March 26, 1004, 
signed " Hans De Grunt;" and our own recollections of nearly half a century's 
friendship with Dr. Holcombe and his wife. This is why we have termed it a 
Trilogv.— H.R.S. 

t Early in his life, owing to the death of his father, and the subsequent 
second marriage of his mother, the boy came under the guardianship of a 
series of instructors and deacons, in various Massachusetts towns, the recollec- 
tions of whose meanness and severity, seemed always synonymous with the 
name of "deacon *' in the Doctor's memory, and from one of whom he finally 
ran away, and struck out for life by himself. It was this bitter experience, 
probably, that gave to his character that tinge of Bohemianism which was a 
marked feature in his make-up, and which, undoubtedly, also led to his being 
often misunderstood. — H. R. S. 


230 William Frederic Holcombe, M.D. [Oct., 

treatment of Eye and Ear Diseases, a specialty then with but few 
representatives in the profession. At first, as is the case 
with almost all beginners in medicine, his practice was mostly 
among the poor; but a notable success with a rich patient's 
case soon opened the door to a wider practice among the more 
influential classes. Not long afterward he went abroad and 
studied in Dublin under Sir William Wilde, the famous oculist 
and aurist; and in Berlin under Virchow and Hemholz; and 
in Paris with Ricard — all eminent in these branches of science — 
with whom he corresponded in later life, and who frequently 
commended to him their students and professional friends who 
visited the United States. After his return from Europe, he was 
for several years the lecturer on diseases of the eye and ear at 
the N. Y. University Medical College; was connected with the 
Eye and Ear Hospital, the N. Y. Ophthalmic Hospital, the 
Medical College for Women, and the American Medical Associa- 
tion; while among his private clientele he numbered such men 
as Daniel Webster, Charles Sumner, Presidents Grant and 
Arthur, Prof. Waterhouse Hawkins, Thomas A. Edison, and 
many others, authors, divines and scientists, who profited by his 
skill. But deafness crept upon him, and others arose to divide 
with him the honors of his chosen specialty, so that gradually his 
practice lessened, although up to the time of the fire in his house, 
some six years before his death, he still received many of his 
old time patients. 

One who knew and appreciated Dr. Holcombe * says of him: 
" His acquaintance with the French, German and Spanish lan- 
guages, and with European scientific and social celebrities, made 
his home in this city a sort of Mecca to foreign visitors to this 
country, where they were sure to receive the ' glad hand,' valu- 
able counsel and hospitable treatment. 

William Frederic Holcombe! What a name beloved to the 
thousands — both here in the flesh and across the dim and 
shadowy borders of the spirit land — whom this plain-mannered 
and unostentatious doer of good and comforter in evii days hath 
cherished, cheered and championed! Here was a man within 
whose big heart many a fellow-being, contemned of men on 
account of race, color or previous condition of servitude, has 
found encouragement and consolation. Here was a physician 
who never turned an empty-handed patient from his door; whose 
motto through life has been: 'If I have more than I need, it 
doesn't belong to me;' a man whose friendship has cheered, 
whose purse has assisted many a Magdalene out of whose fair, 
frail body the church was powerless to cast a single one of her 
seven devils; a man whose cordial hand-grip and cheery smile 
have done more than many an entire theology to carry hope and 
help into the homes of sorrow and despair. Was a nation cruel 
or unjust, he condemned it. Was a man tabooed and ostracized 
for the commission of some fanciful offense, set down as such 

* See article referred to in our first note by Hans de Groot, probably a 
notn de plume. — H. R. S.

solely in the social code, he received him. Were other doors 
closed to a fellow man, because in a weak moment he had fallen 
away from the arbitrary standard of so-called civilization, his 
door was opened to him. Dr. Holcombe was ever the steady, 
logical and sympathetic friend of the artist, be he or she a mem- 
ber of the 'legitimate,' or belonging to the more ' excentrique 
walks of vocal, instrumental or arenic art. He took a special de- 
light in their eccentricities and strove to make them feel so com- 
pletely at home as to awaken and bring out their real and dis- 
tinctive flavor. At his hospitable home on 25th Street, in this 
city, you might have met on one and the same morning Chang, 
the amiable and learned Chinese giant; Carl Formes, then the 
world's most celebrated basso; John Marshall, America's most 
famous steel engraver; Frank Carpenter, one of the best por- 
traitists our country ever produced; Stephen Massett, that genial 
curiosity of the lecture platform; Cheiro, the distinguished 
palmist; Macdonald, the well known sculptor and advanced 
thinker; Marquis de Leuville, poet and titled Bohemian; Junius 
Henri Browne, adept in elegant journalism: George Francis 
Train, special and universal iconoclast of established orders 
of things; Doctor Louis Sayre, the celebrated surgeon; Water- 
house Hawkins, the distinguished English naturalist; Oscar 
Wilde, apostle of latter-day jestheticism ; Countess Castel- Vecchio, 
tall, stately and tempered by the convenances of the coulisses; 
Gen. Gomez, Cuban patriot and leader; William D'Hertburn 
Washington, great-great-nephew of his uncle, the very ideal of a 
beau garcon, who needed only to be seen of women to be loved 
by them; Col. Harry Lockwood, soldier-author, whose 'Abolition 
of the Presidency' was being read both sides of the Atlantic; 
Dr. Newland Maynard, who, though raconteur and gourmet, 
wore the garb or cleric with pleasing grace, a sort of ' little 
Abbe\' always chic and in good taste; John Boyle O'Reilly, the 
famous poet-editor; Countess de Bremont, the sonneteer; Misses 
Phoebe and Alice Cary, Ingersoll Lockwood, lawyer and liter- 
ateur; Mrs. Chambers-Ketchum, the author who was enabled to 
publish her work on botany by Dr. Holcombe's assistance; 
Marchesa di Lanza, Mrs. Lucy Pickens, widow of the Governor 
of South Carolina; Dr. Brown Sequard, the eminent pathologist; 
Mr. George Fox, A. T. Stewart's partner, who married a lady in- 
troduced to him by Dr. Holcombe, and many other people who 
achieved greatness — or at least notoriety — the ' very-good ' fel- 
lows of Bohemia, with a sprinkling of those who had ' failed in 
art and literature.' 

Oh, they were pleasant days those, in that spacious Holcombe 
drawing room, with its quaint old curiosity shop attached, walls 
hidden beneath masses of pictures, portraits, curios, its tall 
"grandfather's clocks"* and mementoes of travel, collected 

* These were three in number, all Holcombe heirlooms which he had in- 
herited from his New England ancestors, and with which he used to amuse 
himself by so adjusting their striking apparatus, that they would sound the 
hour simultaneously, or oftener, in succession, much to the surprise of his 
visitor.— H. R. S.

from all quarters of the globe! * They and many who gathered 
in the rooms where they hung or stood are gone forever now. 
A few years ago a fire swept through the house, and in a few 
moments licked into shapeless mass and debris thousands of 
dollars' worth of rare canvases and works of art. But the good, 
gray Doctor bore his losses like a philosopher. His smile was 
just as cheery, his jokes and persiflage just as quick and elastic, 
his heart just as open to every tale of woe. his feelings just as 
ready to take fire at any story of wrong, persecution, despotism 
or oppression." 

In the few touching remarks made at the Doctor's funeral by 
the Rev. Theodore I. Holcombe, he said: "There was a vitality 
about him that cheered his friends; an individuality and an 
optimism that captivated and encouraged the despondent. He 
never rehearsed his own grief for the edification of his friends, — 
I visited his house for twenty years, and during that period he 
met with great losses financially, but there was no change in the 
doctor; and even after the great fire which burned up his 
pictures and much of his furniture, and sent him out of his house 
into poorer quarters, he made no complaint. In all these adverse 
conditions he exhibited the spirit of a true philosopher. I never 
heard him say harsh things of anyone, or aught in malice — envy, 
hate and revenge were unknown to him; he was full of sympathy 
and helpfulness to all the unfortunate. " With malice toward 
none and charity for all," he went on his way. His cheerfulness 
was ever a present spring of hope for others. When, on one 
occasion, he lost $30,000 by the failure of a bank, where he had 
deposited his money by the advice of a rich friend of his, he 
never complained; and I who saw him often, and knew him in- 
timately, was not aware of his loss for a considerable time after 
it occurred. I think he never allowed himself to worry over the 
past. He would have said: "What is the use? Let the dead 
past bury its dead." Dr. Holcombe was essentially an aggressive 
man, impatient of let or hindrance and had he not been afflicted 
with deafness he would have accomplished much that, with such 
an affliction, he could not undertake. When Dr. Holcombe and 
his wife went to Europe, he was a physician of unusual promise. 
He went abroad for study, and remained six years in Prague and 
Paris and when he returned he was fluent in the French and 
German languages, as was also his wife. Mrs. Holcombe f was 

* The writer has delightful memories of sundry winter evenings, which 
he and wife, guests of Dr. and Mrs. Holcombe, enjoyed in this "old curiosity 
shop" (truly so named), when the good Doctor would lug up from the basement 
a basket of oysters, and pushing away the books and papers which littered the 
study table, would, with his wife's assistance, improvise a petite souper of 
oysters roasted in the shell upon the open fire-place of the room. Nodes 
Ambrosance, were these indeed! — H. R. S. 

t Mrs. Holcombe (whose maiden name was Margaret Wanzer) was not only 
an accomplished woman in the ordinary sense, but a woman of wide reading 
and conversance with men and women. Most of all she was a truly womanly 
woman. Coming from a good Quaker stock, she possessed a certain serious 
sweetness of feature and manner, and an easy dignitv which invited a closer 
acquaintance; and to those who were really admitted to her confidence, she

one of the best conversationalists I have ever met, and much of 
her time was spent in translating from the German. After his 
return the Doctor studied the Spanish language. This familiar- 
ity with foreign tongues made the Doctor's house a headquarters 
for foreigners, and he had quite a practice among them. Dr. 
Holcombe was very social in his tastes — he spent the half of each 
day on the street and calling on his friends. In the mornings 
he was always to be found in his office and generally engaged in 
writing and working on his Hokombe Genealogy. In this matter 
he has accomplished a great work, for the pride of family 
is a potent factor in self respect. We of the name, now know 
something of each other, where without his labor we should 
have been in dense ignorance. It was he who found the Coat- 
of-Arms and the " Holcombe Crusader Knight " in the Abbey 
Church at Dorchester, England. This genealogy he provided for 
in his will, leaving all his personal estate to be used for its pub- 
lication.* I think there was no one who pervaded the city more 
by his presence, or who had a larger acquaintance than Dr. Hol- 
combe. He loved man, woman and all things human. Every 
stranger he met was a new speciman of the race to which he be- 
longed, and as such was entitled to special consideration. It was 
cause for congratulation especially when he discovered a new 
kinsman. The Doctor was well up in the news of the day; he 
bought all the daily papers and disliked to destroy one of them. 
It was a fad of his to keep them, and keep them he did until they 
became a nuisance to all but himself. At an early day he trav- 
eled the west extensively, visiting the various Indian tribes of 
the northwest, and later he was out in the mining districts of 
Colorado where he invested in mines. Dr. Holcombe often vis- 
ited the place of his birth, f and when there the last time he at- 
tended the County Fair where he offered prizes for the best 
house-keeping and the best bread-making. I do not think he had 
any idea that his end was so near. A week before his death he had 
been forced to find for himself new and strange quarters. The 

proved a charming and most reliable friend in all the vicissitudes of life, 
especially to those of her own sex. Denied the privileges of maternity, her 
heart went out to all, both young and old, and many a wayward youth was ben- 
efited by her counsel and watchful care. Unlike as were her tastes and tem- 
perament to those of her husband, she was always shoulder to shoulder with 
him in her spirit of helpfulness and consideration for others, and in that 
catholicity of spirit which could render such service without prejudice or re- 
luctance. To her friends hers will be a blessed memory. She died several 
years before her husband. — H. R. S. 

* It is not exactly known to what degree of perfection he had brought this 
work of his life. That he was persistent and indefatigable in research, we 
know, but whether with his peculiar temperament and habits he possessed that 
" relentless objectivity " which is necessary for the elaboration and ultimate 
completion of such a work, we are doubtful. The results of his labors, how- 
ever, have been committed by his desire to the custody of the Connecticut His- 
torical Society at Hartford, bv whose able librarian, we understand, they are to 
be edited for publication. — H. R. S.

several years ago, a history of that town, which was to have been, but never 
has been, published by the town. — H. R. S.

weather was intensely cold and he was much exposed in the 
moving.* I saw him after he was in the hospital, twice, and he 
seemed strong and hopeful and did not expect an operation. 
When I called again the operation had taken place and it was 
said that he was unconscious; when once again 1 called he had 
passed away, on March 17, 1904. The funeral took place the 20th 
of March, at 3 p. m., in the chapel of the Presbyterian Hospital 
where a great crowd of people, more than the chapel would hold, 
assembled to do honor to one whom they loved and respected. 
After the service was concluded, his remains were taken away to 
be cremated according to his request. We shall miss him in the 
street, in our houses, at our gatherings. Few men leave so many 
friends behind them, people to whom his memory will be prec- 
ious in years to come." 

We have spoken of Dr. Holcombe in the beginning of this 
memorial, as one of the founders of our Society, at its inception 
Feb. 27, 1869. It is elsewhere recorded \ that " at its second and 
third meetings, the infant organization found itself at home with 
Dr. Holcombe, No. 54 East 25th Street, a position more conven- 
ient of general access than its original birth-place. Dr. Hol- 
combe was par excellence the Foster Father of this Society. In 
the genial atmosphere of his helpful presence, and in his spacious 
consulting room, the Society's education and the formation of its 
character was begun." Early in its history he, with the writer 
of this note, elaborated a very complete and useful chart designed 
to aid students of family history in compiling their ancestral 
records, which was adopted and for many years used by the 
Society; and his constant and helpful presence at all its subse- 
quent meetings, down to the time of his death, was an unmistak- 
able evidence of his interest in the Society's welfare.

* There had been nothing in the Doctor's looks to portend such a speedy 
ending even though he had reached his seventy-eighth year. But through one 
of those strange fatalities that have seemingly a tinge of irony about them, 
the authorities of the very city he loved so well were the cause of his death. 
For a number of years he had had his rooms at 78 Lexington Avenue, in the 
block lately demolished to make room for an Armory, and with a cruel haste 
and official indifference to the life of so aged a man, the house was, it might 
almost be said, pulled down upon his head and shoulders.

248 An Unpublished Letter of President Monroe. [Oct., 


100 Washington St., 

Chicago, June 23, 1904. 
Mr. Editor: 

It occurs to me that the publication at this time of a letter 
from James Monroe to Chancellor Robert R. Livingston, which 
I give you below, would be of particular interest as it indirectly 
bears upon the subject of the Louisiana Purchase, made prom- 
inent at this time by the Exposition now in progress at St. Louis. 
The letter is one from family papers in my possession, and, as 
far as I know, has never been published. 

It has been sometimes intimated that there was a little friction 
between Livingston and Monroe on the matter of the purchase 
of Louisiana territory, because Monroe had been added to the 
representaton of the United States at the court of France at a 
late date in the negotiations. He arrived there after the negoti- 
ations had been practically completed, Livingston having carried 
them through without any aid from Monroe, who arrived at the 
scene in time to affix his signature to the final document, and 
which was spread along lines already agreed upon by Livings- 
ton's negotiations. The cordiality of this letter, and its tone of 
respect and trust, ought to forever set at rest the question of any 
jealousies existing between the two statesmen. With this in 
view, I send it to you for publication if you think it would inter- 
est your readers. Yours very respectfully, 

Fred. M. Steele. 

" Phila., May 9, 1792 
Dear Sir: 

I intended to have written you this morning more fully, but 
the presence of several visitants have prevented it. 

I need not mention to you that the favorable inclination of 
the President to yr. mission to France is seconded and wished 
by the republican interest here. You would of course conclude 
this, and that yr. acceptance is earnestly desired as it will put us 
at ease with respect to our ally and with an arrangement in wh. 
in every view we are deeply interested. 

What will be the consequence of yr refusal we know not, you 
know very well the difficulty of succeeding in a republican nom- 
ination at all. Some will probably decline if nominated, others 
in the course of political transactions have created irritation 
and will not be thought of, so that what may be the effect of 
your declining cannot be perceived. I therefore hope you will 
accept if any way compatable with those arrangements formed 
for the welfare of yr family and yr own permanent tranquility. 
The Honorable Sincerely I am yr friend, 

Robt. R. Livingston, Jas. Monroe. 

New York."

1904. ] John Young of East ham, Mass., and Some of His Descendants. 257 


By Mrs. George Wilson Smith, New York. 

Enlarged and Arranged by Homer W. Urainard. Hartford. Conn. 

For the early generations the records existing in the towns on 
Cape Cod from Chatham to Provincetown have been searched, 
and their deficiences have been to some extent made good by the 
County probate records at Barnstable. That the result is not 
wholly satisfactory is due to the incompleteness of the records. 

1. John ' Young, b. , at ; d. Jan. 29, 1690-1, at East- 
ham, Mass. He evidently came to Plymouth, Mass., when a 
young man, and m. there Dec. 13, 1648, Abigail, dau. of Henry 
Howland, and niece, it is supposed, of Pilgrim John Howland. 
She d. April 7, 1692, at Eastham. The will of Henry Howland's 
widow, dated May 26, 1674, mentions her dau. Abigail Young. 
The English home of John ' Young is at present unknown. Sir 
John Young of Devonshire, England, received with others on 
March 19, 1627-8, a grant from the Plymouth Council of a tract 
of land three miles north of the Merrimac River and three miles 
south of the Charles River. He had a son John Young, Jr., but 
it is not known that the son was the same man as John Young of 
Eastham, probably not. 

The will of John Young of Eastham, mentions wife Abigail, 
three daughters (but does not give their names), and six sons. 
It was dated Feb. 19, 1688, and proved April 22, 1691. The nun- 
cupative will of Abigail Young was deposed toby Joseph Young, 
her son, and others, April 19, 1692.

266 A Genealogical Chart of jfr]?. [Oct., 


Contributed by H. Calkins, Jr. 

In his father's chateau, "Bindervelt," which stands in a small 
town of the same name near Saint Trond, Belguim, about twenty- 
five miles east of Brussels as the crow flies, was born March 2 2d, 
1822, Benoit Amour Symphorien De Succa. His direct ancestors 
for six generations held the seigneuries of Bindervelt, Bouverie, 
Roykem, Flines, Derken, Debrue, Willecom and Libertange in 
Belgium, the Barony of Condette in the Boullonais and the title 
of "Baron De Succa" from the Belgian Crown. The family 
originated in Piedmont, which belonged to the House of Savoy, 
and for generations papers and documents were handed down 
from father to son, among which was an old parchment genealogy 
of the family. The accompanying illustration is a photographic 
reproduction of this chart made by the writer of this article, 
and inserted here through the generosity and courtesy of Rev. 
M. E. Dwight, editor of this journal. 

The parchment was designed and executed in 1677, and has 
come down to the present generation of the De Succa family in 
a condition quite remarkable. The length from top to bottom is 
three feet ten inches and the width two feet three inches in the 
broadest part. Its contents record the history of the De Succa 
family, generation by generation, from 11S9 to about 1730, and 
the compiler has quoted old manuscripts and histories that were 
recently destroyed in the Turin Library fire, and has supported 
his statements with references to old records still in existence. 

In the center of the upper margin is a crude oil painting, six 
by eight inches, representing a man and a woman in the cos- 
tumes of Piedmontese nobles of the middle ages, and behind 
them an Italian landscape with their castle in the distance. The 
rectangle beneath it contains a history of the Piedmontese pro- 
genitor of the family, Guido De Succa, and the following rectan- 
gles set forth the records of his descendants, generation by gen- 

The upper left hand oval, surrounded by a blue and buff 
scroll and surmounted by the arms of the elder branch of the 
family, contains a " Description " or general history of the " tres 
noble famille De Succa," with a list of the titles and estates in 
Italy and Belgium, and the honors held by its various members. 
The upper right hand oval in a red and buff scroll, with the arms 
of the younger branch, contains a dedication to " Monsieur Benoit 
De Succa, Escuyer, Seigneur de Bouverie, etca.," dated Brussels, 
10th July, 1677, and signed " E. Flacchio, (Genealogist to His 
Majesty," (The Archduke Albert?) who compiled and executed 
the chart in that year. -Both of the scrolls and arms are painted 
in oil by a hand that manifestly did not belong to one of the old

This Benoit De Succa, ancestor of the "symphonious " Benoit, 
was married in June, 1677, to Lady de Bleville, daughter of the 
Baron of Condette in the Boullonais, and from the fact that the 
parchment is addressed to him in July of the same year, it seems 
to have been designed and compiled by the royal genealogist in 
celebration of that event. Be that as it may, the chart shows an 
immense amount of labor carefully performed, and the crudeness 
of the painting is the chief of its charms. 

The histories of the descendants of Guido de Succa, recorded 
m the separate rectangles, are accompanied by the family arms 
of each of the name, and of the persons taken in marriage; an 
oval shield for the women, and an ordinary shield for the men. 
These "armoiries," each one inch in length, are painted in their 
proper armorial colors and give to the chart a striking and var- 
iegated appearance. The rectangles are bordered in red, ar- 
ranged in rows according to generations, and the writing is in 
French, remarkably legible to the naked eye, except in a few 
places where salt water stains have faded it or holes in the 
parchment have obliterated it entirely. At times the phraseol- 
ogy is quaint and curious; at others the narrative is confined to 
the mere data of vital statistics. 

We are accustomed to pedigree charts arranged in the form 
of a tree with branches and leaves, or in some geometrical mod- 
ification of that plan. These usually contain only the names and 
dates of ancestors and descendants, and have been compiled 
within the last half century. The chart under discussion is quite 
unusual and therefore unique, made so by its arrangement, its 
crude painting, its multiciplicity of armorial designs in color and 
the fullness of most of its records, some of which are so closely 
written that a literal translation often occupies more than a page 
of an ordinary blank book. The shields belonging to those who 
entered the service of the Church are embellished with the in- 
signia of their offices and some of them are quite curious. 

It is not the intention of this article to present a genealogy of 
the De Succa family, but to describe a curious and genuine old 
parchment that has practically had but one abiding place for two 
hundred and more years, — the chateau of Bindervelt. However, 
a brief outline of the family translated from the chart may be of 
interest, and some of the curious passages seem worthy of com- 

Guido De Succa, the first of the name, " Seigneur of Forelli 
in the County of Asti, Principality of Piedmont, was chief senator 
and councillor of Thomas, Count of Savoy." In 1189 he was sent 
on an embassy to Frederic Barbarossa, Emperor of Germany, to 
negociate a league of the petty principalities of northern Italy, 
which at that time were almost constantly at war with each 
other. For this service he was created " Chevalier" by Frederic, 
with whom he went on the ill-fated crusade to Palestine and 
died in 121 1, "leaving behind him in writing a beautiful manu- 
script of the wars conducted in the Holy Land, preserved in the 
library of His Highness of Savoy." His only son, Horace, was 
" reared from his youth " at the court of Amaury de Luzignan, 

268 A Genealogical Chart of 1677. [Oct., 

King of Cyprus, where his father left him during his absence in 
the Holy Land. He served the King of Cyprus as " Proto-Sec- 
retary " but returned to Piedmont on the death of his father and 
succeeded to the estate of Forelli. He must have had some 
lands in Cyprus as well, for it is recorded of one of his descend- 
ants five generations later that he " made a journey to Cyprus to 
sell some lands of his ancestors there." By a second marriage 
Horace secured the " chateau and seigneurie of Tente near Cas- 
telnovo," the capital of the County of Asti. His son, Ascanie, 
" made homage in 1272 to Ame\ Count of Savoy " for these lands 
"which he held in fief from him" in addition to the estates of 
Forelli. He married Laura Muzani and founded with his wife 
in the year 1284 in the church of Forelli a chapel to St. Anthony. 
His son Anthoine "had a difficulty" with the Abbe of Montelu- 
cino over some woodlands lying between Forelli and that place 
which a former Count of Savoy had granted to the monks of 
Montelucino. The Prior of the Chartreuse of Pavia was called 
in as referee and the " difficulty " was amicably settled by the 
signing of a deed dated " the Monday following the Sabbath on 
which they sang the Laetare of Jerusalem in the year 1291." 
Perhaps a plentiful pouring of the cordial had something to do 
with the amicable outcome of the occasion. 

The second generation from Ascanie was the first which pro- 
duced two sons who grew to the dignity of heads of families. 
The elder son of Anthoine inherited the estates of Forelli and 
founded a branch of the family known by that name; the younger 
succeeded to the title and estates of Tente and founded a second 
line, the Chevalier Seigneurs of Tente. The Forelli branch re- 
tained the original arms, composed of a blue field, a white chief 
and a gourd in natural color, with a crest composed of a mailed 
arm brandishing a sword. This line remained in Piedmont, but 
a part of the estates passed into the Borghelli family by the mar- 
riage of a De Succa heiress three generations later, and thence 
to the Agnano family when it was erected to a marquisate by 
the Duke of Savoy in 1643. The other part remained in the pos- 
session of the De Succa family in Piedmont several generations 
longer and finally became extinct through the failure of issue. 
They served the House of Savoy in civil, military and social 
capacities, and some of them entered the Church. Among these, 
one died in the chartreuse monastery at the advanced age of 103 
years; another was called "The Good, because he gave away all 
his lands to the poor;" and a third became Bishop of Nice under 
Pope Paul III. 

The arms of the younger branch, the Chevalier Seigneurs of 
Tente and Tasserolle, were the same as the elder except the 
field which was changed to red, and the crest which consisted of 
a moor holding a gourd extended. This line remained in Pied- 
mont a few generations and then went to Flanders, now Bel- 
gium. In Italy it sent to the J louse of Savoy gentlemen-of-the- 
chamber, councillors, maids-of-honor and regimental officers in 
the wars that were waged almost constantly with the petty 
principalities, the Sforzas, the Viscontis and the Dukes of Milan.

Guillaume, grandson of Anthoine, was surnamed "The Immor- 
tal " He was " one of the most valorous Chevaliers of his time," 
and died in the year 1436, aged 116 years. He had a sister an 
abbess of the third order of St. Francis who built at her own ex- 
pense "a beautiful monastry at Asti," which was standing in 
1677. His son Guillaume was surnamed "The Rich Seigneur of 
Tente " because his estates yielded more than 600 gold ducats 
annually (about $1200). These estates were divided by his 
grandsons, the elder retaining the Seigneurie of Tente, the 
younger, Jean Odon, the Seigneurie of Tasserolle. 

Piedmont was a part of the domain of the powerful and royal 
house of Savoy, where its Dukes held sway with as lordly and 
absolute power as any monarch of a larger realm. Its friendship 
was sought by Kings and Emperors particularly when they had 
a quarrel of large proportions on their hands, and so it was that 
Maximillian I, Emperor of Germany, secured the assistance of 
Italian regiments in quelling the revolt of Flanders in the six- 
teenth century against his attempt to establish his four-year-old 
son, Philip of Burgundy, as ruler there. At the head of one of 
these regiments went Guillaume De Succa, Seigneur of Tasserolle 
in Piedmont, son of Jean Odon De Succa above. He was Gentle- 
man-of-the-Chamber to the Duke of Savoy, but having married 
in Flanders " Lady Jeanne de Voorde, heiress of Distelberghen 
near Ghent," he sold his estate in Piedmont and took his family 
to Flanders about 1535, where he became Sergeant-Major of 
Ghent by appointment of the Emperor Charles V " of glorious 
memory." A Sergeant-Major of the sixteenth century had the 
charge and leadership of the troops maintained for the defense 
of the city, and the appointment was made for life from among 
the old officers of the nobility. Guillaume De Succa was living 
in 1587 and his portrait as Sergeant-Major of Ghent, painted by 
Van der Schelden, hangs in the Library of that town. He had 
a brother Oddon, who was taken prisoner in the Transylvania 
War of 1594 by the Sultan of Turkey, and "died in prison aged 
eighty years," having been incarcerated at least forty years. 
There is a curious record about this affair which states that 
" Polixdne De Succa disguised herself in the dress of a man and 
went to Turkey to effect the deliverance of her brother; but be- 
ing recognized as a woman and one of the most beautiful of her 
century, was taken for Sultana by Mahomet, III of the name, 
Emperor of Turkey." So the Sultan got both the brother and 
the sister, yet the imprisonment continued; from which we must 
infer that the said Polix£ne either made her journey shortly be- 
fore her brother's death or else forgot the purpose of it during 
the honeymoon. 

A half-brother Jean also went to live in Flanders where he 
attained the distinction of being "the richest man of his time, 
having often loaned His Majesty sums of 300,000 florins." His 
Majesty at that time was Charles V "of glorious memory," who 
was proverbially " hard-up," finally abdicated his thrones and 
died insane in the Monastery of Yuste in Spain. 

Guillaume De Succa's eldest son Guillaume inherited from his 

2 "JO A Genealogical Chart of 1677. [Oct., 

mother the fief of Distelberghen near Ghent, which consisted of 
an estate and chateau, known later by the name " Succa-Kasteel " 
or Chateau De Succa. The name is still used there but the orig- 
inal castle has been replaced by a later structure. He was cre- 
ated Chevalier of the order of St. Pierre d'Alcantara by Pope 
Gregory XIII at Rome in 1572. In the struggle of the Nether- 
lands against Philip II of Spain and his despotic governor, the 
Duke of Alva, he espoused the cause of the Prince of Orange and 
fought with him. This struggle, it will be remembered, resulted 
in the erection of the northern provinces into the Dutch Repub- 
lic, and the lower provinces, including Flanders, into Belgium, 
which remained under Spanish rule until 1598, when Philip II 
ceded it to his daughter Isabella, wife of the Archduke Albert, 
and then became an independent kingdom. For his part in the 
struggle against the Spanish rule, Guillaume was deprived of his 
estates of Distelberghen, and after the assination of the Prince of 
Orange he retired to Li6ge where he erected a tomb in the church 
of St. Thomas, and several generations of his descendants are 
buried there to this day. 

His son Benoit, grandfather of the Benoit to whom the parch- 
ment is dedicated "was licensed in theology and law, and was a 
man of great energy, having traveled over nearly all of Europe." 
He married in 1599, Marie Pally of Piedmontese ancestry, heiress 
of Bouverie, Roykem and Willecom, and so retrieved his fallen 
fortunes. He had a daughter, Marie, who was " remarkable for 
her erudition and learning in mathematics and music." She 
published several works in Latin, died at the age of twenty-six, 
and had the distinction of being described a rara virgo in an 
epitaph consecrated to her at Liege, in the parochial church of 
St. Thomas. 

Benoit De Succa, grandson of Benoit above and the one to 
whom the parchment is dedicated, was Chevalier Siegneur of 
Bouverie, Roykem, Willecom and Derken. He married in 1677, 
Marie Madelaine, daughter of Michel De Maulde, Baron of Con- 
dette in the Boullonais, whose title and estates were inherited by 
Benoit De Succa's great-grandson Robert Joseph, who also in- 
herited the fiefs of Bindervelt and Libertange from his mother, 
a Spanish heiress, whose ancestor went to Belgium as Chamber- 
lain and Secretary to the Archdukes Albert and Isabella. 

From this time on the family lived at " Bindervelt," and the 
titles and estates were handed down from father to son for six 
generations, from Benoit De Succa of 1677, to Benoit Amour 
Symphorien De Succa, born there in 1822; and the family papers, 
among which was the parchment genealogy, came to Mrs. Sophie 
De Succa Sewell, daughter of the last Benoit, and mother of the 
writer's wife. The other documents, some of which are much 
older, have been deposited in the Museum at Brussels where there 
are some old portraits by Rubens. The Parchment is still the 
property of Mrs. Sewell, but the writer of this article took ad- 
vantage of its brief sojourn in this country to photograph it, 
translate it, and further preserve it by means of a traced copy 
painted likewise on parchment.

One is inclined to look askance at a genealogy in Dutch, for there are not 
many who find that language easy reading. Yet because of the general lack 
of information among people of Dutch descent concerning their transatlantic 
forefathers, it seems very desirable to avail one's self of every authentic record, 
although some difficulties attend the effort. To those who can read even a 
little Dutch, we recommend Mr. Elias' book, The Patriciate of Amsterdam. 
The families treated of were among the most prominent of their day, the gov- 
erning class, with whom political power was practically an inheritance. It is 
interesting, in comparing them, to find the same names prominent in America 
to-day, some having been influential throughout our history. 

It now appears improbable that any adequate legislation can be obtained 
looking to the securing of the ancient records which in every county of the 
State are lying exposed to the danger of destruction from fire, or theft, or simple 
carlessness. Since their preservation, therefore, must needs be left to the pro- 
tection of their present guardians — if such a responsible word can be applied 
to those who hold them — it behooves those who, knowing their exceeding 
value, are interested in their preservation, and especially the members of the 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, to do what they can to miti- 
gate the consequences of their destruction. Something perhaps may be done 
in the way of obtaining possession of the records themselves and placing them 
under the guardianship of the State, or of our own Society, but for the most 
part only copies of these records can be secured for safe keeping. In such a 
work it is fitting that our Society should take the lead. 

Were it possible to find suitable men in the several counties of the State 
who were interested in this work, and who would be willing to act as co-workers 
with our Society much might be done in this direction. Without their assist- 
ance, however, it is evident little can be accomplished, for our members are 
almost exclusively residents of New York City and the vicinity. The editor 
lately has felt the need of the assistance of those living at a distance from the 
City. His attention had been called to the ancient church records in the Mo- 
hawk Valley, particularly those of the German Lutheran churches in Mont- 
gomery County, and he has been hindered in his efforts to obtain certain copies 
of the same for publication in the Record through ignorance of the proper 
parties to correspond with. 

Perhaps it would be well for our Society to revive the order of Corresponding 
Members. At one time we had such, but the honor was conferred indiscrim- 
inately and the inefficiency of many of those selected led to the dropping of 
this class of members upon the revision of the constitution. Yet such a body, 
if wisely chosen, would be of much assistance in obtaining copies of valuable 
records, as well as in other directions of effort, and without them we see not how 
progress in certain ways can be achieved. 

The following Editorial from the New York Evening Mail deals so ably 
and practically with a subject in which the Record is deeply interested that 
we gladly give it a place in our magazine. Now that the daily press is 
putting its shoulder to the genealogical wheel, we trust that even the U. S. 

1904.] Obituary. 289 

Government may no longer ignore a subject which is rapidly growing more 
interesting to Americans. If instead of printing a griii m.ivs of absolutely 
useless Congressional records the government would publish in a convenient 
form for reference the records referred to in the Evening Mail editorial, 
some one at least would be benefitted. 

"There is a National Genealo t-ty in this country, the purpose of 

which is not .it all to interest people in the study of genealogy, but to further 
inquiries of the tens of thousands of Americans who have a keen interest in 
their ancestry, \> 1 ording to the views of the gentlemen who control this so- 
ciety, one thing is chiefly needful for its purposes, and that is to get Congress 
to print Revolutionary pension and land records and other historical data. 
Genealogy everywhere, and nowhere more than in this country, is a science of 
digging and grubbing. The more its material is scattered and unedited, the lei is its t.i-k. \ ery little such material has bun got together systematic- 
ally in this country. The straightener-out of a tangle of descent may have to 
visit on a single errand a dozen country towns and burrow through many old 
books of ill-kept records. In some cases public records have passed into pri- 
vate hands, and even to find where they are is a laborious task. We say that 
it is not now necessarv to stimulate interest in genealogy, because practically 
every American has the interest. It might be well, however, if this national 
society could do something to instruct all these eat e, anxious to trace 

their line straight to "emigrant," in some of the foundation principles of the 
science. With many people a mere bald assertion is enough. They will ac- 
cept the ready assurance of some genealogical fakir, pay him his fee, and then 
grow furious when the doors of Revolutionary or other societies are not flung 
open to them. They believe in any sort of a genealogical fairy story that is 
told them on the street. They make a halfway inquiry on their own behalf 
somewhere, and then proceed to live in a fool's paradise of effected gentility. 
They know what they are after, but do not know how to get it. 

The purpose of all honest American genealogy is not to figure out the 
right to decorate one's note paper with a crest, but to trace one's lineage 
through an honorable succession of farmers, yeoman and artificers, with per- 
haps a patriotic soldier or a faithful public servant somewhere in the list. It is 
a better ambition than the Old World hankering to push and squeeze one's line 
of descent so that somewhere it shall come into contact with a coronet. It is 
no vanitv in an American to wish to know that his roots strike deep down into 
good American soil. True American genealogy is as far removed from tuft- 
hunting as possible. The inquiry generally carries one back to the spade and 
the hoe. So much the better. One's family tree had the better chance for this 
of possessing a root worth shooting up from." 


John Van Schaick Lansing Pruyn, a life member of the New York 
Genealogical and Hiocraphical Society, died in New York Citv, Sept. 22, 1004. 
A more extended obituary will appear in the next issue of the Record. 

Dvckman, Francis Hamii ton, died at his home in Orange, N, !.. May 
9, IQ04, after a brief illness. On his father's side he was of sturdy Dutch and 
English ancestrv [Ante. Vol, \\. pp. 23,90), being of the seventh cent-ration in 
the line of Ian ' and Rebecca (Waldron) Dyckman, Jacob' and lannctie (Kicr- 
Dyckman, Jacob* and Catalina (Benson] Dyckman, Garrett * and fohanna 
(Odell) Dyckman, Jacob Garrett* and Mary (Preswick) Dvckman and William 
Henry* and Naomi Frances (Mackenzie) Dvckman. His mother, born at 
Inverness, Scotland, was the daughter of James and Eliza Mackenzie. She 
was an earnest and public spirited Christian woman. 

Francis Hamilton Dyckman was born Nov. 11, t8sQ, at Orange, N. J., 
where his parents had lived for nearlv half a centurv. When a young man he 
went West where he began his business career and by means of close applica-

tion and good judgment soon made his way. When but little more than twenty 
years ot age, he established the State Bank at Sleepy Eye, Minn., and after- 
ward became its President. He also identified himself with the flour milling 
industry of the place and was eminently successful. His activities were not, 
however, confined to commercial life; he was always alive to the interests of 
his fellow townsmen and ready to lend a hand in whatever was for the public 
good. He was a member of the New England Society of Orange and for a 
time its treasurer; he was also in the management of the Orange Bureau of 
Associated Charities and took an earnest part in the work of the Hillside 
Presbyterian Church of which he was a member. In the midst of this busy 
home life, with its absorbing interests, Mr. Dyckman did not forget the West- 
ern City which had been the field of so much of his prosperity, and in 1001 he 
established at Sleepy Eye the Dyckman Free Library in a building said to be, 
in construction and equipment, the finest of its kind in the State. 

Mr. Dyckman was married in 1885 to Miss Louise Chance Heroy who sur- 
vivies him with four children: Mary Lang, Heroy Maxwell, Francis Hamilton 
and Richard Pluymert Dyckman. The funeral services were conducted by 
the Rev. Stanley White, Pastor of the church Mr. Dyckman attended and the 
burial was in Rosedale Cemetery. 

Tallmadge, Frederick Samuel, member of the New York Genealog- 
ical and Biographical Society since 188S, died June 20, 1904 at his residence in 
New York City, aged 80 years. He was born Jan. 24, 1824 at No. 28 Vesey 
Street and was the second son of Frederick Augustus Tallmadge and Eliza H. 
Canfield, born Aug. 19, 1793, in Sharon, Conn., daughter of Judson Canfield and 
Mabel Ruggles. His father who was born Aug. 29, 1792 in Litchfield, Conn., 
and died there in 1867. graduated from Yale in 181 1; studied law at Litchfield 
and removed to New York City where he practiced his profession with great 
success; was twice appointed Recorder of the City; was elected to Congress 
as a Whig and served from Dec, 1847 till March, 1849, and was afterward Gen- 
eral Superintendent of the Metropolitan Board of Police. He became prom- 
inent through the energy and firmness which he displayed while Recorder, in 
suppressing the Astor Place riot of May, 1849. The father of Recorder Tall- 
madge was Col. Benjamin Tallmadge, the well known Revolutionary officer, 
who was born in Brookhaven, N. Y., in 1754; died in Litchfield, Conn., in 1835, 
and was the son of the Rev. Benjamin Tallmadge of Brookhaven, and Susannah 
Smith, daughter of Rev. John Smith of White Plains, N. Y. During the Rev- 
olution he was at first Major and then Colonel of the Second Light Dragoons 
which was engaged in many exploits during the war; was a member of Gen- 
eral Washington's military family and conducted his secret correspondence. 
He had charge of Major Andre until the execution of the latter. After the war 
he removed to Litchfield, Conn., where he became a successful merchant; was 
a member of Congress from Connecticut from 1801 till 1817, and was President 
of the Connecticut Society of the Cincinnati. His wife was Mary Floyd, 
daughter of General William Floyd, signer of the Declaration of Independ- 

Mr. Tallmadge was graduated from Columbia College in 1845. After 
completing his law studies he entered the legal profession and for many years 
was a member of the law firm of Tracy, Tallmadge and Noyes. As a lawyer 
he was able and successful, but he will be longest remembered on account of 
his connection with the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, and 
for his benefactions to this patriotic order. After the organization of this body 
of which he was one of the incorporators and its president for twenty years, he 
devoted the most of his time and attention to the welfare of this society; was 
prominent in all its movements and the growth of the organization has been 
largely due to his efforts. The latest movement of this society in which he 
took an active part was that of securing possession of Fraunce's Tavern, and 
his last official act as president was to sign the contract for its purchase. Aside 
from the law and his labors in behalf of the Sons of the Revolution he indulged 
his literary tastes and came into the possession of a fine Shakesperian col- 
lection including the second folio edition. He also obtained valuable Garrick 
pieces from the Burton sale. These, together with Revolutionary objects,

including the Sharpless portrait of Washington, he bequeathed to the Society 
of the Suns of the Revolution and also his house at No. 23 Gramercy Part 
which he directed should be mai of and used as a depository for Rev- 

olutionary relics ami "for such other pur pi ers oi the Society

Frederick Samuel Tailmadge married Julia Louise Belden, who died in 
1801, and leaves no issue. One sister, Mary Floyd, widow of the late Judge 
Edward \V. Seymour of the Supreme Court of Connecticut survives him. 

AVERY, SAM) i i Pi inam, life member of the New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Society, died Aug, 11, 1004, at his residence in New York, 
aged eignty-two years. He was born March 17, 1822,111 New York City, and 
was the eldest son of Samuel Putnam Avery and Hannah Ann Parke, daughter 
of Capt. Benjamin Parke of New York. His father who was in the leather 
business in New York and died there in the cholera epidemic of 1832, when 
only thirty ii\ e years of age, was the son of John William Avery and Sarah 
I airchild, both of Stratford. Conn., and grandson of the Rev. Kphraim Avery, 
rector of Grace Church, Rye, N. Y., by his wife Hannah Piatt (or Pratt). Rev. 
Ephraim Avery was the son of Rev. Ephraim Avery of Brooklyn, Conn., by 
his wife Deborah Lathrop, daughter of Samuel and Deborah (Crow) Lathrop 
of Pomfret, Conn.; who was the son of Rev. John Avery of Truro, Mass., and 
Ruth Little, daughter of Ephraim and Mary (Sturdevant) Little of Marshfield, 
Mass., and granddaughter of Thomas Little of Plymouth, Mass., by his wife 
Ann, daughter of Mr. Richard Warren the Mayflower pilgrim; who was the 
son of Robert Avery of Dedham, Mass., and Elizabeth Lane, daughter of Job 
and Sarah Lane of Maiden, Mass.; who was the son of Dr. William Avery who 
came from Barkham, Co. Berks, England, to Dedham, Mass., about 1650. 

Left by the death of his father at the early age of ten to make his own 
wav in the world, Mr. Avery began engraving as a mere boy in a bank note 
company where he studied copperplate engraving, then engraving on wood, 
and afterward edited art compilations of his own selection, sometimes con- 
tributing illustrations of his own handiwork. In 1865 he entered into the bus- 
iness of commercial engraving and art publishing at the corner of Broadway 
and Fourth Street. In 1867 he received the appointment of Commissioner to 
go to France in charge of the American Art Department at the L'nivcrsal F'.x- 
position in Paris. The following year he abandoned engraving and art pub- 
lishing and became a dealer in works of art. He removed to No. 88 Fifth 
Avenue where he opened a gallery and for nearly twenty years conducted a 
very successful business in paintings and water colors, both domestic and for- 
eign, when he retired entirely from business and was succeeded by his son, 
Samuel P. Avery, Jr. During this latter period of business activity he became 
widely known as an art connoisseur md one of the foremost men in art circles 
in New York City. It was through his advice that several prominent col- 
lectors of pictures enriched their galleries with foreign paintings, notably the 
late William H. Vanderbilt and William T. Walters of Baltimore. The Board 
of Directors of the Metropolitan Museum placed much confidence in his taste 
and judgment and many of the romantic French lancscapes and old Dutch 
paintings now in the Museum were selected hy him. 

Mr. Avery was for several years Secretary to the Art Committee of the 
I nion League Club. This led to the organization of the Metropolitan Musi 
of Art of which he became one of the founders and a leading director. He 

292 Queries. [Oct., 

held many other positions of honor, having been a Trustee of the New York 
Public Library, President of the Grolier Club, Vice-president of the Sculpture 
Society, and honorary member of the Architectural League and of Typothetae 
Society. He was also one of the original committee for the erection of the 
Bartholdi Statue of Liberty in New York harbor. The loss of his son, Henry 
Ogden Avery, a talented young architect, caused him to found in the Columbia 
University library the Avery collection of architectural and art books as a 
memorial. This contains more than fifteen thousand volumes and is probably 
the best special library of works on architecture in the country. For this Col- 
umbia gave him the honorary degree of Master of Arts. Nor were his bene- 
factions confined to this University. He gave to the Lenox Library seventeen 
thousand nineteenth century etchings and engravings, a collection which he 
had been accumulating for nearly forty years. The Grolier Club, of which he 
was President and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society of 
which he was at one time a Trustee, were also recipients of valuable gifts, and 
one of the collections of oriental porcelaen in the Metropolitan Museum was 
collected and given by him. The New York Times of Aug. 13, 1004, in an 
editorial entitled " A Public-spirited Merchant," said of him: " The full extent 
of the late S. P. Avery's usefulness may never be known. Conspicuous as his 
position here in New York was, he gave modestly from the surplus of his col- 
lections to many country institutions ever fostering the love of art in its feeble 
beginnings." In March, 1897. on the occasion of his seventy-fifth birthday, a 
potrait medallion in gold was presented to him by seventy-five citizens of New 
New York in recognition of his many public services. 

Samuel Putnam Avery was married Nov. 24, 1844, to Mary Ann Ogden, 
daughter of Henry Aaron Ogden and Katharine Conklin, both of New York. 
His is survived by his widow and two children: Samuel P. Averv, Jr., who until 
recently conducted the business founded by his father, and Mrs. Fannie F. 
Welcher, wife of the Rev. P. Welcher of Brooklyn. Benjamin Parke Avery, 
who was Minister to China under President Grant and died in Pekin in 1875, 
was his only brother.

I002, ana some memoranda on other portions of America. By Ernest Cushing 
Richardson and Anson Ely Morse. Large 8vo, cloth, pp. XXI+294. Prince- 
ton, N. J. The Library Book Store. 

This work attempts to cover the historical literature of 1002 on the Amer- 
icas, exhaustively as regards the I'nited States, rather fully for British America, 
and less fully for Latin America. It contains titles of books, pamphlets and 
articles analyzed from the periodicals, also appraisements of books condensed 
from standard reviews, brief descriptions of the subject headings employed, 
and Library of Congress card numbers attached to the book titles as far as they 
apply. This work as completed is an alphabetical subject list with a classified 
index, and supplies the bibliographical aid most needed by American students 
of history at the present time, conveniently arranged for ready reference.

One of the most important of the new genealogies, both from its subject 
and the manner of treatment, is here presented by Professor Moore. Long 
Island families have not, with a few exceptions, been well represented in 
printed books, therefore this work, with its copious notes, carefully referenced 
and indexed, is especially welcome. Nearly four hundred pages are devoted 
to the genealogy proper, followed by over one hundred pages of appendix con- 
taining deeds, abstracts of wills, lists of soldiers, residents of Newtown, public 
officers, marriages, and miscellaneous articles, including pedigrees of allied 
families. The index is good, and the general make-up of the book is most 
pleasing to eye and hand. The compiler invites additions and corrections. 

Genealogy of the Reese Family in Wales and America. Mary

Divided into chapters, and pursuing a pleasant narrative style, this book 
is more of a family history than the usual genealogical work pretends to be. 
The family is not large, therefore this arrangement is an agreeable one, 
especially as a good index is appended. The first American ancestor was Rev. 
David Reese, first of New Castle, Delaware, and later of Pennsylvania.

only is traced, in this case being the ancestry of Henry Martyn Lewis, with 
the allied families of Buckingham, Collier, Kirtland, Pratt and Shipman. The

Mass. Press ol the Sun Printing Co. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 48. Paper, 
25 cents; cloth, jst.oo. 

In this little volume an attempt has been made to tell the story of the 
towns of Lenox and Richmond in a simple way, with the incorporation of some 
statistics, such as lists of soldiers and representatives to the 1 ieneral 1 'ourt. A 
chapter in the history of Berkshire in England has been introduced. The com- 
piler states that if there is an) demand (or it, a supplementary volume on the 
Vital Statistics of Lenox and Richmond will be published. 


DINGER. Lucy Forney Bittinger. n. p. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 63. 

This is a contribution to the family histories of the Pennsylvania Germans, 
tracing the line from Adam BUdinger, who came to America in 1737. The 
Compiler uses a diagram index, giving the heads of families in chart form with 
page and family number. This is an excellent way to index a small book in 
order to show at a glance the principal lines traced, but as many names are of 
necessity omitted, the labors of the student are not greatly aided. We wel- 
come all efforts towards clear and comprehensive indexing, but the perfect 
genealogical index is yet to be invented. 

Lewisiana or the Lewis Letter. Vol. XIV, No. 12. Vol. XV, Nos. 
I, 2, 3. Carll A. Lewis, Editor. Guilford, Conn. 1904. One dollar a year. 

The June number ends Volume 14 of this family paper, which thus proves 
its usefulness. The editor states that a card index of all the male Lewises 
contained in this publication has been prepared, and until it can be printed he 
will furnish these references to anyone who will send stamps for reply. One 
might ask why this invidious discrimination against the Lewis daughters exists, 
ami would warn the editor that his printed index will fail of much of its useful- 
ness and desirability unless he includes all descendants therein. 

Church Records in New Jersey. William Nelson. Philadelphia. 
Franklin Printing Co. I904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 32. 

This valuable pamphlet contains notices of the character.-extent and con- 
dition of the original records of about one hundred and fifty of the older 
churches and Friends' Meetings, with other data. New Jersey is such a diffi- 
cult field for family research that a work of this kind ought to be in the hands 
of every genealogist, and will certainly be appreciated by any student into 
whose possession it may rome. Only one hundred copies have been issued, 
reprinted from the Journal of the Presbyterian Historical Society for March 
and June, 1904. 


Book Notices. [Oct., 

Beckwith Notes Number Five. A. C. and E. S. Beckwith. Elkhorn, 
Wis. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 36. 

This number enters upon an account of the posterity of the Nova Scotian 
settlers of 1761, namely, Samuel and John Beckwith from Norwich, and Ben- 
jamin, Andrew and Nicholas from Lyme. The pedigrees of the mothers of 
families are given when practicable, and the pamphlet, as is the creditable fact 
with all the Beckwith numbers, is well indexed. 

New Jersey Archives. Second Series. Vol. II. Newspaper Extracts, 
Vol. II. 1778. Edited by Francis B. Lee. Trenton, N. J. The John L. 
Murphy Publishing Co., Printers. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. VII+648. 

From the musty pages of old journals of 1778, once eagerly sought and 
read by friend and foe of the American cause, the editor of this volume has 
brought forth treasures and curiosities of history. Records of naval engage- 
ments from Sandy Hook to Cape May, lists of Tories whose property was con- 
fiscated, and admiralty sales of captured vessels, are pleasantly mingled with 
descriptions of the way to make molasses, sugar, and spirits from Indian corn 
and pumpkins. 

A Biographical Memorial of General Daniel Butterfield, in- 
cluding many Addresses and Military Writings. Julia Lorrilard 
Butterfield. New York. The Grafton Press. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. XII+379. 

General Butterfield was descended from a sturdy ancestry of soldiers and 
pioneers. His first American forefather was one of the earliest settlers of 
Chelmsford, and his own father was President of the Overland Mail Company, 
whose stages made the first overland journey from San Francisco to St. Louis 
in 1858, the trip consuming twenty-three days and four hours. General But- 
terfield first entered the military service as a private soldier in the Utica Citi- 
zens" Corps in 1850 at the age of nineteen, and in 1898, being at that time Com- 
mander of Lafayette Post, G. A. R., he assisted in its great work of raising 
8000 troops for the Spanish War. The many hopes, efforts and accomplish- 
ments of this notable life are fully told in this interesting volume, which is well 

The Barony of the Rose. A Historical Monograph. Grace Stuart 
Reid. New York. The Grafton Press. 1904. Quarto cloth, pp. 58. Price 

The story of Letitia Aubrey's land, whose rental was one red June rose, is 
here narrated with sympathy, pathos and humor. The barony of the rose be- 
came the Moravian town of Nazareth, and its quaint and beautiful customs are 
described, with many interesting illustrations and some biographical details. 
The book is very attractive. 

Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York. Supple- 
ment to Year Book of 1899. New York. Francis E. Fitch. 1903. Quarto 
cloth, pp. 331. 

This volume contains a list of members added since 1899, with the services 
of their ancestors, and the addresses delivered before the Society from that 
date till 1903. 

Crozier's General Armory. A registry of American families entitled 
to coat-armor. William Armstrong Crozier, F. R. S. New York. Fox, Duf- 
field & Co. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 155. 

The success ot this handbook was assured when the first edition became 
almost immediately exhausted. The present volume begins with an apology 
for the use of coat-armor in America, in which the author quotes Dugdale and 
the present Ulster King of Arms, who allow any arms which have been con- 
tinuously borne for at least three generations, or at least for one hundred years. 
The present edition contains nearly 2000 names, alphabetically arranged, with 
description of arms borne by original settlers. The appendix describes the de- 
vices of the thirteen original states and has a useful glossary of heraldic terms.

Hi mi'HREVILLE. WITH COLLATERAL LINES. Harriet Southworth (Lewis) 
Barnes. Philadelphia. 1903. 12 1), pamphlet, pp. 56. 

The ancestral record of Frances Amelia (Smith) Lewis is here set forth, 
containing the families of Heecher, Bristol, Brown, Billiard, Clark, D« 
Partington, Peck, Preston. Sperry and Stiles as well as Humphreville, I he 
compiler gives the birth and marriage ol .ill children ol eai h aired 
but only traces the lineal descent ol Mrs. Lewis. There are pleasant records 
here of the peace and plenty of the good old tunes, when the well to-do farmer 
filled his cellar with "quantities of salted and smoked meats, barrels of apple 
butter, mince-meat, cider and vinegar," as well as "the corner set off for the 
wagonloads of oysters which, with plenty of seaweed to keep them alive" were 
carried from New Haven to Litchfield for the winter's use. 

CHRONICLE OP THE YERKES Family, with notes on the Li v B 
and Rutter Families. Josiah Granville Leach, LL. B. Philadelphia. 
J. B. LippinCOtt Company. I004. Quarto cloth, pp. 262. 

This is one of the handsomest of recent genealogies, and its beautiful pic- 
tures and portraits, its elaborate headings and tailpieces, all upon heavy hand- 
made paper, illustrate work worthy to be so enriched. The Yerkes family has 
become famous of late years through the business operations of some of its 
members, but as a whole they have been strongly attached to rural life, and in 
the eighteenth century only two of the name abandoned the country for the 
city, and one of these eventually returned to his country home, there to pass 
ti s declining years. Nearly 2000 descendants of this yeoman slock have been 
traced. The descendants of Toby Leach and Thomas Kutter, allied with the 
Yerkes, are arranged as separate parts. 

Historical Sketch of Joseph Spencer, Map>k General of the 
Continental Troops, Member of the Council op Safety, Congress- 
man, Judge, Deputy, Deacon \nl> Farmer. Charles Barney Whittelsey. 

Hartford. The Case, Lockwood & Brainard Co. 1004. 12 D, pamphlet, pp. 

Beginning with the p'ecfigree of General Spencer, and tracing his ancestry 
to Jared and Hannah Spencer, early settlers of Fast Haddam in 1662, Mr. 
Whittelsey gives in this pamphlet a succinct and clear account of the life and 
services of this eminent patriot, concluding with the letter of General Spencer 
to President Washington and the Continental Congress. 

General Joseph Graham and His Papers on North Carolina 
REVOLUTIONARY History. Major William A. Graham. Raleigh. Ed- 
wards & Broughton. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 385. 

Part I of this very interesting volume recites the personal and family 
history and genealogy of General Joseph Graham, including his Revolutionary 
services, and those 0/ the war of 1812. The second part contains the Revolu- 
tionary papers prepared by him, 1820-1827, for ludge Murphey's proposed his- 
tory of North Carolina. A list of the signers of the Mecklenburg Declaration 
of Independence, with a copy of that document, and a quaint picture of Meek 
lenburg Court House, where it was signed, and various maps, are included in 
the historical portion. 

A Monograph of the Descent of the Family of Beebe from the 
earliest known Immigrant, John, of Broughton, England. 1650.

Book Notices. [Oct., 

The American Numismatic and Archaelogical Society of New 
York City. Proceedings and Papers. 1904. 

This number contains the report of the committee on medals, which has in 
hand the annual issue to members subscribing therefor a series of medals com- 
memorative of notable events in the history of this country. This is followed 
by the report of the committee on location, urging consolidation with the New 
York Historical Society. A most interesting article on medals of Louis XVIf, 
and a number of excellent illustrations are also included, besides the member- 
ship lists and other matters. 

The Barclays of New York: who they are and who they are 
not, — and some other Barclays. R. Burnham Moffat. New York. 
Robert Grier Cooke. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 474. 

A tradition has been seriously entertained by the descendants of Rev. 
Thomas Barclay, the first rector of St. Peter's at Albany, that they are all of 
Ury stock. The compiler, having found convincing testimony to the inac- 
curacy of this tradition, gives his reasons clearly and at length, quoting old 
letters and records, English and American, to substantiate them. The de- 
scendants of Rev. Thomas Barclay of Albany are fully treated, and most of 
them are so prominent in New York society that the book reads like an elite 
directory. Mr. Moffat prints wills and deeds in the appendix, and a very use- 
ful memorandum of the condition of county records in Virginia. The index 
and make-up of the book are exceedingly good. 

The Descendants of Major Samuel Lawrence of Groton, Mas- 
SACHustts, with some mention of allied families. Robert Means Law- 
rence, M.D. Cambridge. The Riverside Press. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 

The English ancestry of the Lawrence family has been traced by the com- 
piler to the year 1191, the baptismal record of John Lawrence, the first Ameri- 
can progenitor, having been found at Wissett, County Suffolk, England. The 
records of the lineal ancestors for the first four generations in America are 
given, but the genealogy proper begins with Samuel Lawrence of the fifth gen- 
eration, carrying out the history of nearly two hundred and fifty descendants. 
The book abounds in biographical details. The index records the women 
under maiden and married names, and identifies individuals in many cases by 
family or genealogical number as well as that of the page. 

New England Cox Families, No. 14. Rev. John H. Cox. n. p. n. d. 
8vo, pamphlet, pp 109-116. 

Continuing the records from the previons number, this pamphlet carries 
forward the account of the descendants of William and Mary (Ramsdell) Cox 
of Pembroke, Mass., accompanied by copious references. 

Some Descendents of Digory Sargent of Boston and Wor- 
cester, Mass. Reprinted from New England Historical and Genealogical 
Register for October. 1004. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 12. 

The compiler states that these notes are published in the hope that they 
may lead to the compiling of a more complete genealogy of this interesting 
family. They begin with Digory Sargent, a soldier in King Philip's war, 
whose ancestry is unkuown. In the earlier generations nearly every man was 
a soldier, and nearly every branch of this family suffered from Indian raids. 

Lineage of Mr. Francis Plumer, Newbury, Mass. 1635. Alvin 
Plummer. San Francisco. 1904. Nar. S. pamphlet, pp. 63. 

This brochure is published as an exposition of the Plummer system of 
notation, which seems practical though somewhat clumsy. Each individual 
has but one reference numeral (or letter), which is determined by the order of 
his (or her) birth, and is suffixed to the parent's, thus serving as a complete 
index to all ancestors, and being in turn transmitted to all descendants.

1904. Edited by Geo. W, Martin, Secretary. Volume VIII. Topeka. Geo. 
A. Clark, State Primer. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. IX-I-594. 

Matters of genealogical importance in this volume are, a roster of Kansas 
for fifty years, emigration to Kansas in 1859, the establishment of counties, his- 
torical work in t k.i.l:<- i.unty, a genealogical letterof Daniel Boone's, and num- 
erous biographical sketches. 

Ancestors and Descendants of Daniel Lothrop, Sr. 154510 iqoi. 
Compiled and published by George David Read Hubbard. Brooklyn. 1901. 
Quarto cloth, pp. 37. 

The ancestry of Daniel Lothrop is successfully traced to the early part of 
the sixteenth century, the first known ancestor being John Lowthroppe, of 
Lowthorpe, County York. The direct line is followed to Daniel, who was bom 
in Bethel, Vt, in 1768. As in his work reviewed in the last Record, the An- 
cestors and Descendants of Josiah Hosmer, Jr., the compiler has arranged the 
names so that the younger generations are shown in close proximity to their 
near ancestors. By using different type for each generation and by indenting 
each generation more deeply, the pedigree can thus be seen at a glance. The 
author lends many characteristic touches to the book, such as items of con- 
temporaneous history, family anniversaries worth remembering, and the like. 
The index is good. 

De Vroedschap van Amsterdam. 1578-1795. Vol I. lohan E. Elias. 
Haarlem. Vincent Loosjes. 19O3. Quarto, full leather, pp. CLXXVII+546. 

Comparatively few New Yorkers of Dutch ancestry have attempted to 
trace their immigrant forefathers, there being the obvious difficulties of a for- 
eign tongue and a Clumsy method of Setting forth descent. The present vol- 
ume, The Patriciate ,| \msterdam, is written m Dutch, but it is easy 
Dutch, and the essential facts are not hard to decipher. The period cov- 
ered is that of the emigration to America, which makes it of particular 
value in this country. There are about fifty families of prominence in 
America whose names appear, among them being Beekman, Bogart, Brower. 
Van Couwenhoven, De Graff, llanng. Hopper, [arisen, Roosa, Roosevelt. 
Schenck, Ten Broeck, Van Buren, Van Dyke, Van Rensselaer and Wynkoop. 
The work is very handsomely bound and will be complete with index inVol. II.
