Vol. XXXVIII. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1907. No. 1. 


By Hopper Striker Mott. 

In January, 1643, J an ar| d Jacobus Strijcker were granted by the 
States General land in New Amsterdam provided they removed 
twelve families to the colony at their own expense. It is not known 
that they took advantage of this opportunity, and it was not until 1651 
that the younger brother reached Manhattan. He became the foun- 
der of the Knickerbocker family so many of the descendants of which 
settled in early years in this State and in New Jersey. Jan did not 
emigrate till the following year. 

That they were sons of Gerrit is evidenced by the habit the 
younger son had of sometimes including in his name the designation 
Gerritsen. They came of a line which is of remote antiquity in 
Holland, one branch of which has been seated near The Hague for 
some eight centuries, and another at Rotterdam. Outside of royalty 
few families were more highly positioned. Men of influence and 
position were many, and descendants here will be interested in 
searching for the tomb in the High Choir, No. 37, in the great Kirke 
at Haarlem, St. Bavon's, in which the remains of Dirck Strijcker, 
Knight, were interred in 1677. The coat of arms is in possession 
of the writer. 

With his wife, Lambertje Seubering, two sons and four daughters, 
Jan Strijcker hailed from Ruinen, in the province of Drenthe. His 
second wife, Swantje Jans, was the widow of Cornelis de Potter, of 
Breuckelin. She lived seven years after the marriage on April 30. 
1679, and a third dip into the matrimonial pool brought to the surface 
Teuntje Teunis, of Flatbush, another widow (of Jacob Hellakers, of 
New Amsterdam. He built the first house at New Utrecht, L. I., 
and served as magistrate there in 1661 and 1664), whom he married 
March 31st, 1687. Soon after his arrival (1654) he took the lead in 
founding a Dutch colony at Midwout (Flatbush), where the same 
year he was selected as Chief Magistrate of the settlement, an office 
he generally filled for the next twenty years. He was one of the 
embassy selected at a convention held December 10, 1653, at New 
Amsterdam, to be sent to the Lord Mayors in Holland to make com- 

2 Jan and Jacobus Strijcker and some oj their Descendants. [Jan., 

plaint and crave assistance because of the colonists' annoyance from 
the English and Indians. (Vide O'Cal. Col. Hist., Vol. II., p. 374.) 

On July 6th, 1663, he appeared as a delegate to the convention 
which assembled at the capital to engage the several Dutch towns 
to keep up an armed force for public protection, and he represented 
his town at the Great Landtdag called by the Burgomasters, which 
met April 10, 1664, at the Stadt Huys, to consider the precarious 
condition of the country. As a delegate in the Hempstead conven- 
tion of 1665, he helped enact the celebrated "Duke's Laws," and 
appears as a patentee on the Nicolls patent, October 11, 1667, and 
again on the Dongan patent, November 12, 1685. Prior to this 
time he had been elected captain of the Midwout militia (October 
2 5> x 673)> and on March 26, 1674, was named a deputv to confer 
with Governor Colve at New Orange (formerly New Amsterdam) 
when the Dutch came back to their own. 

To turn from the civil and military man, we find him in the first 
year of his residence at Midwout one of the two commissioners ap- 
pointed by the Director-General (December 17, 1654) to build the 
Dutch church and parsonage there— the first erected on Long Island. 
On December 20, 1659, he addressed the "Noble, Rigourous, am! 
Honourable Gentlemen and Honourable Director-General of the 
Council in Nieuw Nederlandt." saying that the edifice "now, with 
God's help, nearly completed, requires a coat of colour and oil, being 
covered on the outside mostly with boards. These materials must 
necessarily be brought from the Fatherland, and we request it to be 
done upon your Honour's order to the Honourable Company." The 
edifice cost 4,057 guilders 9 stuyvers. The site of this church is the 
corner of Flatbush avenue and Church lane, as now designated. In 
1698 a larger structure was erected and stood for ninety-five years. 
Its bell gave the first warning of the approach of the British when 
they landed, and after the Battle of Long Island the edifice was used 
as a temporary hospital. Later the enemv's horses were stabled 
there, a fate which befell many of the churches. In 1793 the second 
building was razed and the present church was finished three years 
later and consecrated in January, 1797. It has been enlarged several 
times during the century, the centennial celebration of which was 
observed in 1897. A tablet commemorative of the founding of the 
First Church on Long Island was placed on its walls April 26, 1902, 
by the Society of Colonial Daughters of the Seventeenth Century. 
Jan Stnjcker's remains lie in the graveyard at the rear of the church, 
of which he was an active supporter for many years during the tenure 
of Domine Johannes Theodorus Polhemus, the pastor. 

> He had eight children and died circa 1697 a t the ripe age of over 
eighty years, full of the honor which such a new settlement could 
bestow. He had the satisfaction of living to see his sons settled on 
valuable plantations and occupying positions of influence in the 
community, and his daughters marrying into families of note. His 
eldest child, I., Altje, b. in Holland, mar. Abraham Jorise Brincker- 
hoff, May 20, 1660. He was born in Flushing, Holland, in 1632. 
and was an elder in the church and a magistrate at Flatbush in 1673 ;

December 28, 1683. He was High Sheriff of Kings County, ap- 
pointed October 11, 1686, and his commission as quartermaster of 
the troop of horse was made by Governors Andros and Leisler, 
January 13, 1690. He became Judge of the Court of Richmond 
County in 1720. When 35 years of age, in 1687, he took the oath 
of allegiance {vide Year Book, Holland Society, 1896, p. 159). It 
is of his granddaughter, the dau. of his son Jan, that the following 
pathetic tale is unfolded : 

During the administration of Lord Cornbury the colony was called 
upon to exert all its energy in furnishing men, provisions and muni- 
tions of war for the earlier colonial wars. In connection with this 
war, tradition has preserved a most romantic and touching episode, 
which occurred in the town of Bushwyck. Pieter Andriese, a young 
man of energy and means, was about to be married to the lovely 
daughter of Jan Strijcker, of Flatbush, when, having become ac- 
quainted with one of the newly appointed officers of the expedition, 
he was induced to enlist in the army. The consternation of his 
friends and even that of his bride was not able to depress his spirits 
or to change his purpose, and he departed, leaving them in a fearful 
apprehension of danger. Days, months and years passed by, his 
bride every hour expecting to hear of her betrothed, but in vain. 
At last, overcome by sorrow and hope deferred, death made her 
his victim, and the same day that she was buried Andriese unex- 
pectedly made his appearance in town. For years he had been a 
captive among a tribe of Northern Indians and had returned, alas ! 
too late. (Stiles' History City of Brooklyn, p. 353.)

founded by his father; was High Sheriff, appointed November 2, 
1683 ; named patentee of the town in the Dongan charter, November 
12, 1685 ; "commissioner" of his town, 1686 and 1688, and captain 
of Foot Militia, December 27, 1689. He commanded his company 
that year in an expedition to Albany on the first invasion of Canada. 
In 171 1 (August 13) he joined the officers of the Kings County 
Militia in signing a petition in relation to the defenses in case of in- 
vasion, and in 1713 still held the office of captain. In 1718 a recon- 
ciliation of the differences between Flatbush and Newtown concern- 
ing boundaries was effected. Strijcker was a trustee representing 
the former place. Deeds were passed October 30. From 1720 to 
1722 he was a Judge of the local court. Gabriel Furman's notes to 
Gowan's Bib. Amer., No. 1, p. 30, speak of his residence there in 
these words: 

"Among the relics of former days in Flatbush is a long old one- 
story Dutch brick house, built in the year 1696, which has the date 
of its erection, with the initials of its original proprietor's name, 
formed by blue and red glazed bricks, arranged in the following man- 
ner on its front" :

The writer possesses a picture of this habitation. It was a stately 
Holland brick building in quaint Dutch style, and was torn down 
circa 1847. The site was until recently in the family, and may be 
yet (vide Vanderbilt's Social History of Flatbush, p. 214). He was 
the founder of the New Jersey branch of the family, having bought, 
June 1, 1 7 10, four thousand acres on Millstone River, Somerset 
County. It does not appear that he ever lived there, but his sons, 
Jacob and Barent, and his grandsons, the four sons of Jan, removed 
and settled there.

nietje's death to the Orphan's Court, Wednesday, January 8, 1659. 
{Vide Holland Society Year Book, 1900, p. 115, Minutes of the 
Orphan Masters, p. 62.) He stated that he had accepted Schepen 
Jacob Strijcker, the brother of the deceased, and Laurens Cornelisen 
van der Wei, his brother-in-law, as guardians for the children, two 
sons, one 19 months old and one 4 months old. General Stryker 
confounds her with Jan's daughter; he did not have access to the 
above minutes, which were not published. It is obvious that the 
sister could not be the daughter, for she d. in 1658, while the latter 
was of Hackensack in 1686. 

Jacob Strijcker, as has been stated, reached New Netherland 
from the United Provinces in 1651. His wife, Ytie (Ida) Huy- 
brechts and two children, Gerret and Altje, accompanied him. Set- 
tling at New Amsterdam he purchased, February 11, 1653, from 
Hendrick Gerritse, a "lot on the west side of the Great Highway in 
the cross street running from the said Highway to the shore of the 
North River, Manhattan Island." We have failed to locate this 
land. In the following month he subscribed 200 florins to the fund 
for erecting a wall of earth mound and wooden palisades across Wall 
street, for defense against the Puritan colonists and the unfriendly 
Indians. (Vide Court Minutes of N. A., Vol. I., p. 67.) His name 
appears with great frequency in the Minutes and in Holland Docu- 
ments and Mss. His intelligence and ability singled him out early 
as a person worthy of trust, and confidence in his integrity was shown 
in many cases by his selection by the Court as referee and guardian 
A few instances will suffice : In November, 1654, he was appointed 
arbitrator in the suit of William Pietersen, pltf., vs. Jan Jansen 
Schepmoes, deft., wherein a question relative to "security for Hen- 
drick Jacobson Patervaer's wife" was to be determined. In the 
following month Isaac Greveraet, as husband and guardian of Lys- 
bert Juriaensen, daughter of Skipper Jiiriaen Andriessen, deceased, 
and Daniel Litschoe, as guardian of the son of the aforesaid, re- 
quested, by petition, as the skipper's widow was about to remarry, 
and two proclamations of that fact had been made, that guardians 
be appointed to conserve the rights of the children in the father's 
estate. Litschoe and Strijcker were selected and "being called into 
court," continue the minutes, "and being unprovided with any excuse, 
thev accepted the same and promised to act honestly therein." The 
latter and Greveraet had been appointed guardians of the child of 


6 Jan and Jacobus St?~ijcker and some of their Descendants. [Jan., 

Ensign Dirck Barensen Smit, to whom was added January 29, 1663, 
Hendrik Smit, brother of the deceased. As Ensign of the troops 
of the West India Co., Dirck had served against the Swedes on the 
South River in 1655 and against the Esopus Indians in following 
years. Strijcker took the place of Johannes de Peyster as guardian 
(appointed January 17, 1664) of the minor child of Hendrik van der 
Walle. during de Peyster's absence in Holland. (Vide Hoi. Soc. 
Year Book, 1900, p. 125.) 

After two years of persistent effort on the part of the Burghers to 
obtain a local Bench, the Amsterdam Chamber wrote Stuyvesant, 
under date of April 4, 1652, directing him to erect "een banck van 
Justitia," modeled after the custom of the fatherland. On February 
2 > I 653, great rejoicing accordingly reigned in the dorp, the birth of 
a new city, New Amsterdam, and the inauguration of the Court of 
Burgomasters and Schepens, being celebrated. Just two years later 
to a day Strijcker was raised to the Magistracy, and this position he 
filled with evident satisfaction, for he continued in office during 1656, 
1658 and 1660. During the absence in 1655 °f the Governor-General 
and his troops on the expedition in which Ensign Smit served, the 
savages fell on the city "with murder, robbery and fire." Driven 
from the capital, they proceeded to the western shore, where soon 
the whole of Pavonia was in flames, large numbers of prisoners 
were taken, and much destruction of property and life occurred, both 
there and on Staten Island. It was under this stress of circum- 
stances that the Court met on September 20, and resolved to make 
extensive repairs to the defensive works. The height of the pali- 
sades was raised to between 14 and 15 feet, in order to prevent the 
overloopen (jumping over) of the savages. It was estimated that 
this work would cost Fl. 4,000, and this amount, on the return of the 
victorious governor, was authorized to be raised. The Heer Schepen 
subscribed on the opening of the list, and the result was gratifying in 
that, when the subscription closed on October 15, Gl. 6,305 had been 

Valentine's Manual, 1861, p. 582, locates the premises which "the 
worshipful" bought on May 27, 1656, as being in the vicinity of 
present Exchange Place, east of Broad street. They were described 
as being a part of the sheep-pasture and of a plot conveyed by Sur- 
geon Jacob Hendriksen Varrevanger to Jacob Steendam, the later 
poet of the settlement. On Strijcker's complaint, on November 20 
of this year, that the chimney of Jacob Stevensen's house, in Pearl 
street, was neither repaired nor pulled down, although he had fre- 
quently notified the Fire Inspectors, the latter were ordered to forbid 
within twenty-four hours the said Stevensen and his wife to make 
any more fire there ; or to pull down the chimney if they deemed it 
necessary. The Magistrate stated that he was the next neighbor, 
and "nothing else is to be expected, not only by him but by the whole 
street, but a sudden destruction by fire." Pearl street was known 
at this early period as the Strand, and the above incident would fix 
his residence as being on the East River shore. ( Vide Court Mins., 
etc., Vol. 2, p. 230.) The house he occupied at this time, says the

Year Book, 1900, Holland Soc, was that of Jan Jansz. Schepmoes, 
who d. in January, 1656, and was located on Pearl street, south of 
Fort Amsterdam, a number of blocks away from the site identified 
by Valentine. 

The order of Burghers, which had been established in Amsterdam 
in 1652, was not introduced into the capital until 1657. The names 
of twenty individuals were enrolled in the Great Burgher Right 
within eight days — the time specified therefor. Strijcker took the 
"proper oath" on April 13. These twenty names, says Stone's His- 
tory of N. Y. City, p. 33, composed the aristocracy of the period. 
The "small citizenship," numbering 216, merely gave the right to 
trade in the colony. There were additions to these original lists, a 
very few, however, to the Greater class. Of the "Great citizenship" 
as distinguished from the "small," several names had disappeared by 
1668. "How many of them remain in this city," asks General Wil- 
son's Memorial History, Vol. I., p. 351, "and in what walks of life? 
Stuyvesant, Kip, Strycker, Van Dyck, Bogardus we have— long 
lived names." Some others could be cited and in the highest walks, 
among them the de Forests, Van Brughs and Couwenhovens. 

In 1660 the Schepen and his wife are listed as members of the 
Dutch church in Manhattan, and it is noted that they had removed 
to New Amersfoort (Flatlands). Although never living there here- 
tofore, he early became associated with Long Island because of his 
brother's residence at Midwout. He must have returned for a time 
to New Amsterdam, for in 1662 he again became a magistrate there, 
and the following year was Presiding Schepen, or President of the 
Court. He was a member of the Convention, representing the Capi- 
tal, which met July 6 of that year, at which his brother Jan was a 
delegate, as heretofore mentioned. Having failed of election to the 
Burgomastership, to which office he was nominated February, 1664 
{vide Court Mins., etc., Vol. 5, p. 16), he was appointed Orphan 
Master, March 18 (vide New Netherland Register, p. 67). In 1667 
he had returned to Flatlands, where the church records show that he 
and his wife were members, and both brothers were numbered as 
patentees for Midwout in October of that year. Business required 
his attention, doubtless, up the river at Wildwyck (Kingston), where 
he rented the "village home" in 1671 (vide Year Book, 1896, Hol- 
land Soc). No sooner had the Dutch commanders, Evertse and 
Benkes, established themselves in the city, superseding the English, 
August 12, 1673, than the nearest six towns on Long Island, together 
with Staten Island, submitted to their authority. Upon their nomi- 
nation, August 18, Strijcker was selected as Schout-risca! (Attorney 
General and Sheriff). (Vide Col Docs., II., p. 573.) It was 
gratifying that these Dutch towns in Schout Strijcker's district de- 
clared' that "the entire of the people" would observe their oaths, and 
in case of attack, would assist New Orange in resisting the enemy. 
These loyal towns were accordingly allowed to select their own mili- 
tary officers (vide Col. Docs., II., pp. 577, 643-5-6). Strijcker and 
his friend, Secretary van Ruyven, were commissioned December 5, 
1673, to examine and settle the boundary between the town of New

Utrecht and Jan Jansen Veryn's land, and was, again with his 
brother, a delegate to the convention March 26, 1674, to confer with 
the new Dutch Governor (Colve). 

Jacob was somewhat of an artist, probably an amateur portrait 
painter. He is called a "limner" in the records, and one of his 
productions, a presentiment of himself on a wooden panel, has de- 
scended in direct line to the present generation, as has also a chair 
brought by him from Holland. The profession of art he did not fol- 
low, but devoted the time not occupied by his judicial and public 
duties to farming and trading with the Indians, a highly lucrative 
business in those days. He seems to have been a gentleman of con- 
siderable means, of much official influence and of decided culture. 
We find from the records kept by Domine Casparus van Zuuren that 
he died in October, 1687. 

His oldest child, Gerret, m. Wyntje Cornelise Boomgaert (Bo- 
gert) in December, 1673, and d. in 1694. She d. in 1700. They 
lived in Flatlands, and were both members of the church there in 
1677. Governor Dongan appointed him Sheriff of Kings Countv 
in 1688. In 1692 he bought a house and farm of 100.8^ acres in 
Gravesend for £297.10. Of his nine children we are concerned with 
the third, Jacobus, who was bap. in Flatbush August 27, 1682. He 
lived at Gravesend (of which militia company he was ensign in 1713) 
with Martha, his wife, until 1722, when he removed to Oyster Bay. 
His will, dated September 27, 1748, when he was "very sick and 
weak in body," is signed "Jacobus Strycker," and is recorded at 
Jamaica in L. G. p. 256. Therein testator bequeaths to his daughter, 
Mercy, "a full Sorting out of Household Goods and other Mouvables 
Equal to what my Daughter Woanche [Wvntje] Laan Has alreadv 
Had," and to each £25 paid from the movable estate. To daughter 
Mercy "my young black mair." All the remaining part of the estate 
was devised to his sons, Garret and John, in equal shares, subject to 
the payment by them of £150 to each of their sisters. The sons 
were made executors. 

Mercy m. Cornelius van Cott.

John m. Sarah Crooker and had son, Sampson, named for Sarah's 
father, a witness to the will, and bap. at St. George's, Hempstead. 

Garret, or as he spelled his name, Gerrit Striker, the great-grand- 
son of the old magistrate, was born May 20, 1726, when his father 
was fifty-three years of age. This method of writing the family 
cognomen has been followed by his descendants, the Manhattan 
branch. He lived at Oyster Bay and was in business at Glen Cove 
in 1756, with Obadiah Lawrence. In 1764 he removed to New 
York and purchased (August 8) for £550, from Charles Ward Ap- 
throp, a farm of 50 acres "beginning at the head of a certain cove 
on the easterly side of the North River" and bounded, northerly, by 
the land of Humphrey Jones, with the lane leading to the Blooming- 
dale Road, subject to right of way in the grantor. Here he built 
his home and named it "Striker's Bay." An indentation from the 
river formed the cove which recessed the shore to a considerable

distance to the east, into which emptied a marshy stream which rose 
at 104th street, near 10th avenue. A smaller branch of this brook 
from the neighborhood of the avenue and 95th street joined it at 
nth avenue. By his wife Ann, b. July 30, 1734, the daughter of 
Derick II. and Rebecca (de Grove, b. 1720) Albertson, he had an 
only child, James, b. September 18, 1755. His father d. September 
17, 1775, and his mother's death occurred October 10, 1785. The 
son inherited the property as heir-at-law. For the de Grove ancestry 
and James Striker's descendants vide N. Y. G. and B. Record of 
July, 1906. Striker's Bay became the centre of Lord Howe's activi- 
ties on the island, and marked the westerly line of the British defence 
prior to and during the Battle of Harlem Heights.

38 The Barnes Family of Easthampton, L. I. [Jan., 

Shield of the Barns Family, of East Winch Parish, 
norfolkshire, england. 

Thomas Cecil, Earl of Exeter, and eldest son of William Cecil, 
Lord Burleigh, together with Sir Richard Cecil, aliened Grancourt 
Manor to William Barnes, Esq., April 20, in the 17th year of King 
James I. 

The church (at Pentney Priory, Norfolkshire, Eng.), is dedi- 
cated to All Saints. 

" Against the north wall of this church is a mural monument 
of marble, with the arms of Barns : argent, two bars, counter- 
embattled sable, in chief three pellets. 

" Here lyeth under the foot of this wall the body of Owen 
Barns, Gent., third son of William Barns, the elder of this place, 
Esq. After he had lived the space of 52 years, changed this life 
for a better, 167O. 

Quis sim, nosce cujus caro put- 

rida, nil nisi vermis, 
Quisquis, es, hoc de me sit 

tibi scire satis."* 

" On the west wall of this chapel is a neat monument of mar- 
ble, with the arms of Barns, impaling Shepherd, argent, on a 
chief, gules, three Danish hatchets, or, and Barns impaling 
Hovell, sable, a crescent, or. 

" Near unto this place lyeth the body of William Barns, Esq., 
son of Edward Barns, of Soham in Cambridgeshire, Eng., who 
first married Thomasina, daughter of Richard Hovell, of Willing- 
ton, Esq., by whom he had 5 daughters, after whose death he 
took to wife Thomasina, the daughter of Owen Shepherd, of 
Kirby, in this county, Esq., and (removed his seat to this place) 
had by her 5 sons and 8 daughters, and did for many years, with 
great prudence and fidelity, serve his king and country, in the 
office of justice of the peace, at length such was the iniquity of 
the times, that loyalty was esteemed a crime, when not allure- 
ments, or threats, from him who usurped the highest power, could 
swerve him from his constant adherence to his abandoned prince, 
and the persecuted Church of England; he retired to a private 
life, devoting himself wholly to the service of God and religion, 
and peaceably departed hence in the 77th year of his age, 1657, 
expecting a joyful resurrection. To whose memory Frances 
Stanton, his second daughter, out of her tender love and dutiful 
affection, erected this monument. Semper Idem."\

The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. 55 


By Sir Edmund T. Bewley, M.A., LL.D., F.R.S.A.I. 

The romance associated with the name of Edgar Allan Poe ^as 
unfortunately, been imported into the account of his ancestry given 
by many of his biographers; and statements have been made in re- 
spect of it that are not only extravagant and unfounded, but simply 

^Forlhe's'e, as will be seen presently, Mrs. Sarah Helen Whitman- 
who was at one time engaged to be married to the poet-is mainly 
responsible ; but it must be borne in mind that she had been dominat- 
ed by his personality, and fascinated by the glamour of his genius 
and that to her at least he must have seemed at times to be descended 

r °Rut when the genealogist, with unbiassed mind and critical eye, 
investigates the 6 question of descent, he finds that the paternal an- 
celtry of Edgar Allan Poe cannot be strictly traced further back than 

f0 His Se grltgreat-grandfather was David Poe, of Dring, in the 
County Cava?, Ireland, who early in the eighteenth century was a 
tenant farmer on the estate of John Maxwell, Esq., M. P., for the 
County Cavan, afterwards created Baron Farnham 

The farm, which was a moiety of the townland of Dring, contained 
about 85 acres of rather poor land, and was situate in the parish of 
Kildallon, not far from the borders of the County Leitrim. David 
Poe appears to have been a member of the then Established Church, 
and the first record we have of him is contained in the old Vestry 
Book of Kildallon Parish, which shows that at the Easter Vestry 
held on the 18th April, 1720, David Poe, of Dryng, was appointed 
one of the overseers of roads. This appointment evidences that he 
occupied a respectable position in the parish, as men of some sub- 
stance were selected for such a post. 

He appears from entries in the Vestry Book to have been re- 
appointed at intervals up to October, i 73 i, and he attended I 11, 1 per- 
son the Vestries held on 5th July, 1725, 12th April, 1726, 5 th October, 
mi and 20th April, 1732. He subscribed his name to the Minutes 
of the 12th April, 1726, as "David Pooe" (sic.) ; but writing was 
evidently a matter of difficulty to him, and the signatures David 
Poe" affixed to the Minutes of the Vestry Meetings of 1725 and 1732, 
and "David Pooe" to the Minutes of the Meeting of 1731, are ob- 
viously in the handwriting of the Rector of the Parish, the Rev. 
Tames Brabazon. . , 

David Poe had three children, viz.: Alexander, who emigrated to 

56 The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. [Jan., 

America some time before 1741, and settled near Gettysburg; John, 
the great-grandfather of Edgar Allan Poe ; and Anne, who married 
Archibald Scott. Possibly Mary Cowan, mentioned in his will, may 
have been another daughter. 

In 1741 John married Jane McBride, who was then apparently 
resident in the parish of Drumully and County Fermanagh ; and for 
the purpose of obtaining a marriage license, John Poe and his father, 
David Poe, both described as of "Drin in the County of Cavan," en- 
tered into the customary bond to the Bishop of Clogher, in whose 
diocese the marriage was to be solemnized. The bond, the original 
of which is in the Public Record Office, Dublin, bears date the 31st 
August, 1741, and the signatures "John Poe" and "David Poe" 
affixed to it suggest that even the signing of a name was a trouble 
to John as well as to David. It is noticeable that on this occasion 
David Poe did not introduce a second "o" into his name. The mar- 
riage was solemnized shortly afterwards, and under an agreement 
then entered into, John Poe was put into possession of one-third part 
of his father's farm. 

David Poe made his will dated 25th August, 1742, being therein 
described as "David Poe, of Dring, in the parish of Kildallon and 
County of Cavan, farmer," and he thereby bequeathed to his dearly 
beloved wife, together with his son-in-law, Archibald Scott, and 
Anne Scott, his wife, the one-half of his holding, being a fourth part 
of Dring, together with all moveables then in the Testator's posses- 
sion; and secondly, to his son Alexander the sum of £5 sterling, in 
case he came to this country within six years after the Testator's 
decease ; thirdly, the sum of £3, to be paid to Mary Cowan ; and 
fourthly, to the Testator's son John, together with the third he then 
enjoyed by marriage article, as much of the Testator's holding as 
would make up the half, being the fourth part of Dring, together with 
ten head of sheep, and the one-half of all tackling belonging to the 
plough ; and the Testator appointed his wife sole executrix. The 
will was signed by the Testator merely by a mark. 

David Poe died shortly after the execution of his will, and it was 
proved in the Consistorial Court of the Diocese of Kilmore on the 
22nd September, 1742, by his widow, Sarah Poe. 

John Poe appears to have remained at Dring for seven or eight 
years after his father's death, working his portion of the farm, until 
the pressure of an increasing family, and the example of his elder 
brother, led him to cross the seas. His wife is believed to have been 
a daughter of the Rev. Robert McBride, Presbyterian Minister of 
Ballvmoney, County Antrim, and sister of John McBride, who after- 
wards became an admiral in the British Navy. Owing, no doubt, to 
his wife's influence, John Poe after his marriage became a member 
of the Presbyterian Congregation worshipping at Croghan, near 
Killeshandra, about three miles and a half from Dring; and when 
children began to arrive — and they came pretty rapidly — they were 
baptized by the Presbyterian Minister at Croghan. 

The old Register of baptisms and marriages of the Croghan Con- 
gregation has been preserved, and appears to have begun in February, 

1907.] The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. 57 

1741-2; but unfortunately one or two leaves containing the earlier 
baptisms have dropped out, and in this part should have been entered 
the baptism of David, the eldest son of John and Jane Poe. How- 
ever, the baptisms of three of their other children appear, viz.: 
George Poo (sic), 24th April, 1744; Mary Poo, 19th March, 1745-6; 
and Jean Poo, 16th February, I747" 8 - , T -,-, 

There were ten children of the marriage of John and Jane Poe ; 
and as no further baptismal entries of their children are found in 
this book, we may conclude that the emigration of the family to 
Pennsylvania took place about 1748 or 1749. 

David and George accompanied their parents, being then infants 
of tender years ; and the history of the family from the time it was 
established in America is not difficult to trace. John Poe settled m 
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and when David, his eldest son, 
grew up, he became in the' first instance a wheelwright. On moving 
afterwards to Baltimore, he engaged in some other business, and 
appears to have met with success. 

On the outbreak of the War of Independence he warmly and ac- 
tively supported the American cause, and in September, 1779, was 
appointed Deputy Assistant Quartermaster General on the Baltimore 
lines. From holding this post he was afterwards known in the family 
as "General Poe." He gained the confidence and esteem of Lafay- 
ette, who remained his lifelong friend. 

He married Elizabeth Cairnes of Pennsylvania— described as a 
beautiful woman— and the eldest son of the marriage was David 
Poe the younger, born in 1786. When he grew up he was trained 
for the law, but, captivated by the charms of Mrs. Elizabeth Hop- 
kins, an actress, and the widow of C. D. Hopkins, a comedian, he 
married her, and went on the stage. "General" Poe and the other 
members of his family were strict Presbyterians, and this marriage 
and the adoption of the profession of an actor by his eldest son were 
a great grief to the General, and caused an estrangement between 
him and his son. 

Edgar Poe, born the 19th January, 1809, was the second son of the 
marriage of David Poe the younger and Elizabeth Hopkins. On the 
death of his parents in 181 1 he was taken charge of by Mr. John 
Allan, a wealthy tobacco merchant of Richmond, Virginia, and in 
after life he assumed the additional name of Allan. For the career 
and works of this gifted but unfortunate genius, reference should be 
made to the encyclopaedias, or to some of the numerous books that 
deal with his life and works. 

In his lifetime the question of his Irish ancestry had become a 
subject of enquiry. He believed that the Poe family was remotely 
of German origin, and in an unpublished letter, dated 14th July, 1839, 
written to his cousin, George W. Poe, of Mobile, Alabama, he thus 
expresses himself: 

"There can be no doubt, I think that our family is originally German, as 
the name indicates it; it is frequently met with in German works on Natural 
History and a Mr. Poe is now living in Vienna, who has much reputation as 
a naturalist The name there is spelled with an accent, thus, Poe, and is 

58 The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. [Jan., 

pronounced in two syllables, "Po-a." As far back, however, as we can trace, 
our immediate progenitors are Irish." * 

Edgar Allan Poe's knowledge of his Irish ancestors did not extend 
further back than his great-grandfather, John Poe, and of the ac- 
quirements and true position of the latter he seems to have been in 
complete ignorance ; for in another passage in the letter quoted above 
he says: 

"John Poe about a century ago was a name of much note in the financial 
history of Ireland; he was of ancient and noble family, and married the sis- 
ter of the British Admiral McBride, himself of illustrious descent." 

Let us now see how the question of the ancestry of Edgar Allan 
Poe has been treated by his principal biographers. 

In her little book on "Edgar Poe and His Critics," published in 
New York in i860, Mrs. Sarah Helen Whitman states: 

"Those who are curious in tracing the effects of country and lineage in the 
mental and constitutional peculiarities of men of genius may be interested in 
such facts as we have been enabled to gather in relation to the ancestry of 
the Poet. The awakening interest in genealogical researches will make these 
acceptable to many readers ; and in their possible influence on a character so 
anomalous as tbat of Edgar Poe they are certainly worthy of note. 

John Poe, the great-grandfather of Edgar Poe, left Ireland for America 
about the middle of the last century. He was of the old Norman family of 
Le Poer, a name conspicuous in Irish history. Sir Roger le Poer went to 
Ireland as Marshal to Prince John in the reign of Henry II, and became the 
founder of a race connected with some of the most romantic incidents of 

The family of the le Poers, like that of the Geraldines and other Anglo- 
Norman settlers in Ireland, passed from Italy into the North of France, and 
from France through England and Wales into Ireland, where, from their 
isolated position, and other causes, they retained for a long period their 
hereditary traits, with far less modification from intermarriage or consocia- 
tion with other races than did their English compeers. Meantime the name 
underwent various changes in accent and orthography. A few branches of 
the family still bore in Ireland the old Italian name of De la Poe. 

John Poe, the great-grandfather of Edgar Poe, married a daughter of 
Admiral McBride, distinguished for his naval achievements, and connected 
with some of the most illustrious families of England. From genealogical 
records transmitted by him to his son David Poe, the grandfather of the 
Poet, who was but two years of age when his parents left Ireland, it appears 
that different modes of spelling the name were adopted by different members 
of the same family. David Poe was accustomed to speak of the Chevalier 
le Poer, a friend of the Marquis of Grammont, as having been of his father's 

In "The Works of Edgar Allan Poe" (Edinburgh 1874), edited 
by Mr. John H. Ingram, a memoir of the poet is given, in which the 
account of his ancestry is founded on Mrs. Whitman's statements. 
The march of the family from Italy into the North of France and 
from France through England and Wales into Ireland is retold, and 
— improving on Mrs. Whitman — it is alleged that a few branches 
of the family "still bear in Ireland the old Italian name of De la Poe." 
It is further stated that through her father, Edmund Power, Lady 
Blessington claimed descent from the same old family.

Carolina, whose maternal grandmother was a member of the American branch of the Poe 
family.— e. t. b.

"A descendant of this famous and high-spirited race was John Poe, who 
by his marriage with Jane, daughter of the distinguished naval hero, Admiral 
McBride, became allied with some of the most illustrious families of Great 

Mr. Richard H. Stoddard edited an edition of the "The Works of 
Edgar Allan Poe" (London 1896), and in his notice of Poe's an- 
cestry he states:* 

"This family, which was called De la Poe, must have been very old, if it 
be true, as we are assured it was, that the name antedated the river Po" ; 

and after describing the change of name to le Poer, and the settle- 
ment of le Poers in Ireland, he proceeds : 

"It was involved in the internal dissensions of Ireland at a later period; 
and when that unfortunate country was invaded by Cromwell in 1649, only 
one of its three leading branches escaped his vengeance. Its name gradually 
changed, as I have remarked, De la Poe becoming le Poer, and le Poer Power 
and Poe; and with its change of name there was a change of its employ- 
ments, the marshals and seneschals of old time subsiding in the last century 
into a country gentleman who was the father of Lady Blessington ; of an 
attorney, who wrote the song of Gramachree ("as down on Banna's banks I 
strayed"), and a certain Mr. John Poe, whose only claim to remembrance is 
that he was the great-grandfather of Edgar Allan Poe." 

In "The Life of Edgar Allan Poe," by Colonel John A. Joyce 
(New York and London, 1901), we read: 

"Sir Roger de la Poe, of Italy, accompanied Prince John into Ireland in 
the year 1185, and the Poer, Poe or Power family continued to flourish in 
the Emerald Isle until a Roundhead Rough Rider, named Oliver Cromwell, 
in 1649 ripped up the rebellious Roman Catholics and crushed their civil and 
religious rights under the iron heel of despotism, murder and robbery in the 
name of God. It still proceeds. 

John Poe, the father of Lady Blessington, and great-grandfather of Edgar 
Allan Poe, suffered by the Puritan inundation. David Poe, born in London- 
derry, the grandfather of the poet, married the daughter of John MacBride, 
Scotch-Irish Admiral of the Blue. He emigrated to Pennsylvania before our 
Revolutionary War, and was a wheelwright by trade, and worked at his 
business in Baltimore, being a leader among the labor fraternities in that 

All these accounts of Edgar Allan Poe's ancestry might be de- 
scribed in Colonel Joyce's alliterative style, as "romance run riot;" 
but, as already stated, in Mrs. Whitman's case there are mitigating 

The other biographers, however, might have been expected to 
write more soberly, and to investigate the alleged matters of fact, 
before committing themselves to statements that not only lacked 
evidence to support them, but were demonstrably absurd. 

Mr. Stoddard must have been laughing in his sleeve when he 
stated that he had been assured that the family antedated the river 
Po, as every schoolboy knows that the name of the river in ancient 
times was Padus, and that Po is but the modern form of the name. 

As a very large number of surnames are derived from place names, 
a family illustrious or otherwise might have acquired its name from 
the river after it had become known as the Po, but unfortunately the 

* Vol. I, p. 2. 

60 The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. [Jan., 

name of the river is masculine in Italian — il Po — and the surname 
of De la Po could not have been derived from it. 

As a matter of fact, however, there is no trace of any family of 
De la Po or De la Poe having ever existed in Italy, or France, or 
anywhere else; and if there had been such, on no rational principles 
could the name have been converted into De la Poer or le Poer on a 
migration of the family to France. The tacking on of the letter r 
to words ending in a vowel, and the pronunciation of "villa" and 
"sofa" as "villar" and "sofar" are essentially English and American 

That members of a distinguished family called le Poer passed 
from Normandy to England and subsequently from England to Ire- 
land is beyond question. But, as has been pointed out more than 
once by eminent genealogists, "le Poer" in its origin was a purely 
personal surname,* and perhaps was a form of "le Pohier," i. e., "the 
native of Poix" ; and De la Poer is an absolutely impossible name to 
have arisen naturally. 

In Ireland "le Poer" was gradually changed into "Poore" and 
"Power" ; and had not a member of the Power family by an unfort- 
unate blunder assumed the title of "Count de la Poer," on being 
created a Count of the Holy Roman Empire, the surname of de la 
Poer would never have been heard of. But in law he was, of course, 
entitled to take any name he thought fit. 

There is not a tittle of evidence, however, that any member of the 
Poe family was descended from any le Poer or Power, and the state- 
ments as to the identity of the families is without the slightest foun- 
dation. But the most ridiculous and audacious assertion made by 
any of Edgar Allan Poe's biographers is the alleged relationship of 
the poet's great-grandfather John Poe to "the gorgeous" Lady Bless- 
ington. According to Mr. Stoddard, she was a sister of John Poe, 
while Colonel Joyce represents her as his daughter. 

This is a matter whose absurdity could at once have been made 
manifest if these biographers had taken the trouble to investigate 
the parentage of Lady Blessington and the date of her birth. Mar- 
guerite Power, who by her second marriage became Lady Blessing- 
ton, was the second daughter of Edmund Power, a small Roman 
Catholic landowner in the county of Tipperary, by his wife, Ellen 
Sheehy, who was also of the same faith. The future Lady Blessing- 
ton was born at Knockbrit, near Clonmel, County Tipperary, on the 
ist September, 1789 — that is to say, nearly half a century after John 
Poe's marriage with Jane McBride, and about thirty-three years 
after his death ! The grim Presbyterian farmer would turn in his 
grave if he learned that this brilliant and fashionable lady — the child 
of Roman Catholic parents, and the subject of many scandals — had 
been represented as his sister or daughter ; and if he were capable of 
feeling amused, he would surely grin at hearing that he had been 
described as a sufferer from the Puritan inundation of Ireland and a 
victim to Oliver Cromwell's despotism.

History, by J. Horace Round, p. 18. 

1907.] The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. 6 1 

A statement of Poe's biographers as to the parentage of Jane 
McBride, the wife of John Poe, also needs correction. 

Admiral John McBride was the younger brother of Dr. David 
McBride, who was born on 26th April, 1726. He could not have 
been more than fourteen years of age when John Poe was married, 
and therefore it is impossible that Jane McBride could have been his 
daughter. It is now, however, alleged that she was his sister, and 
a daughter of the Rev. Robert McBride, Presbyterian Minister at 
Ballymoney. This is possible ; but the Rev. Robert McBride was a 
man of strong views, and it is difficult to understand how his daugh- 
ter came to be married in the Parish Church of Drumully, County 
Fermanagh, under a license granted by the Bishop of Clogher, and 
not in her father's meeting house at Ballymoney, County Antrim. 

At the time when David Poe, the great-grandfather of Edgar Allan 
Poe, was resident at Dring, County Cavan, there were many other 
Poes living in various parts of Ireland. In the early part of the 
seventeenth century three brothers, William, Thomas and Anthony 
Poe, became settlers in the North of Ireland in connection with the 
Plantation of Ulster. They were sons of Anthony Poe, of Papple- 
wick, in Nottinghamshire, and near relatives of Dr. Leonard Poe, 
one of the physicians of James I and afterwards of Charles I, a man 
of eminence in his profession. William and Anthony Poe settled in 
the County Tyrone, and Thomas Poe in the County Fermanagh. 
William Poe, while retaining his Tyrone lands, acquired an interest 
in lands on the Sedborough estate, in the County Fermanagh, to 
which he gave the name Manor Poe. Much information respecting 
the principal events of his life can be gathered from the printed 
calendars of State Papers, the Reports of the Historical MSS. Com- 
mission, and from the Public Records ; but it is sufficient here to state 
that he entred the Parliamentary Army in 1642 as a Captain, served 
for some time with distinction in Cromwell's own regiment, and 
eventually attained the rank of Major. He returned to Ireland in 
1673, and died in 1675, without leaving male issue. His brother, 
Anthony Poe, served as a Captain in the Parliamentary Army both 
in England and Ireland, and for his services in Ireland became en- 
titled to a grant of portion of the forfeited estates under the Crom- 
wellian Settlement of Ireland. He was the founder of a branch of 
the family long seated in the County Louth at Poe's Court, the name 
given to part of the lands of Drumgooldstown, acquired under the 
Acts of Settlement. 

Thomas Poe, another of the three brothers, suffered great losses in 
the Rebellion of 164 1. He subsequently joined the Parliamentary 
Army in Ireland, with the rank of Lieutenant, and received for his 
services a grant of lands in the County Tipperary. He was the pro- 
genitor of the Tipperary branch of the family with all its ramifica- 
tions, which is now represented by the Poes of Riverston, County 
Tipperary, the Poes of Heywood, Queen's County, the Poes of Har- 
ley Park, County Tipperary, and the Poes of Kilkenny. 

That David Poe, of Dring, was descended from one of the Poes 
who settled in Ireland in connection with the Plantation of Ulster is 

62 The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. [Jan., 

a most natural and reasonable supposition, and this view has been 
taken by some of the biographers of Edgar Allan Poe. 

In Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography, edited by James 
Grant Wilson and John Fiske (New York, 1888), it is stated, in the 
account it gives of Edgar Allan Poe : 

"His great-grandfather, John, who came from the North of Ireland to 
Pennsylvania about 1745, was a descendant of one of Cromwell's officers." 

Mr. John H. Ingram, in his later book "Edgar Allan Poe, His Life, 
Letters and Opinions" (London, 1880), abandons Mrs. Whitman's 
ideas as to Poe's ancestry, and states: 

"It must be confessed that the earliest reliable records do not carry the 
paternal ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe further back than the middle of the last 
century; but if his ancestors were descended, as is extremely probable, from 
the Poes of Riverston (County Tipperary, Ireland), the race may be traced 
back nearly two centuries earlier." 

Mr. James A. Harrison — Edgar Allan Poe's most recent biograph- 
er — in his ''Life and Letters of Edgar Allan Poe" (New York, 1902 
and 1903), has also taken this view of Poe's ancestry. He states : 

"The biographers of Poe are indebted to Mr. John H. Ingram for the 
surest testimony, obtained from the poet's family in Baltimore, as to his 
ancestry. 'There is no good reason,' says John P. Poe, Esq., of Baltimore, 
to suppose that the ancestors of Edgar Allan Poe were descended from the 
la Poers [the Anglo-Norman family who passed from Italy to France, and 
from France to England, Wales and Ireland, and with whom Mrs. Sarah 
Helen Whitman, the poet's fiancee in 1848 connected her own and Poe's 
progenitors.] John Poe, the progenitor of the family in America, emigrated 
from the North of Ireland a number of years before the Revoluiton, and 
purchased a farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, whence he afterwards 
removed to Cecil County, Maryland. At the time of the Revolution he was 
residing in Baltimore. His wife was Jane McBride, believed to be a sister 
[not a daughter, as frequently stated] of James McBride, Admiral of the 
Blue, and M. P. for Plymouth in 1785." 

But when an attempt is made to trace the descent of David Poe, 
of Dring, from one of these Cromwellian officers great difficulties 
present themselves. In the first place, there is a total absence of any 
evidence on the subject. The rentals of the Maxwell or Farnham 
estate of David Poe's time are not forthcoming. His farm was 
probably held under a tenancy from year to year, and no lease or 
other instrument dealing with it was registered in the Registry of 
Deeds Office. The old Parish Registers of Kildallon and the neigh- 
boring parishes have long since disappeared, and a Hearth Money 
Roll* of the County Cavan of the year 1664 — which gives the names 
of all householders in the county at that date, down to the occupier 
of the humblest cottage — does not contain the name of Poe. 

But, independently of the failure of proof, there are difficulties of 
a different nature. From which of the original settlers should descent 
be traced? Major William Poe may be disregarded, as the terms 
of his will negative the idea of his having left male descendants. 
Lieutenant Thomas Poe seems also out of the question, as ample in-

them for David Poe, of Dring. The same may be said also of Cap- 
tain Anthony Poe ; so that although the hypothesis of the descent of 
David Poe, of Dring, from one of these northern settlers seems 
plausible and probable enough, it cannot be accommodated to the 
facts.* It may be added, too, that a further difficulty arises from the 
fact that, although "David" occurs three times as a baptismal name 
amongst Edgar Allan Poe's ancestors, it is not found elsewhere in 
the Poe family. 

Under these circumstances it occurred to the present writer to 
make a careful investigation as to whether there had been in Ireland 
any other unattached Poes, i. e., Poes whose relationship to one of the 
Nottinghamshire settlers could not be made out. 

An administration bond found amongst the records of the Diocese 
of Armagh in the Public Record Office, Dublin, dated 5th February, 
1764, and entered into by Grace Poe, widow of Thomas Poe, late of 
Drummond, in the parish of Clonfeacle, County Tyrone, farmer, on 
obtaining letters of administration of the effects of her deceased 
husband, led to an examination of the Parish Registers of the Parish 
of Clonfeacle. 

Clonfeacle is a large parish situate partly in the Barony of Onei- 
land West, and County Armagh, and partly in the Barony of Dun- 
gannon, and County Tyrone, Amongst the townlands in the Tyrone 
portion of the parish are Drummond and Ballymackleduff. The 
Parish Registers go back to a much earlier date than is ordinarily 
found in country Parish Registers in Ireland. The Register of Bap- 
tisms begins in 1743, but both in it and in the Register of Burials 
there are at times serious gaps. 

The earliest enlry in the Registers relating to a Poe is as follows: 

"Jan. 4, 1761 : 

There was married by the Rev. Mr. James Dobbins, Thomas 
Poe and Grace McAttaggart, of Drummond." 

This was, of course, the Thomas Poe whose widow Grace obtained 
letters of administration in 1764. 

We next find from the Registers that James Henderson and Jane 
Poe, of Ballymackleduff, were married by license on 7th April, 1809, 
and that John Kerr and Mary Poe were married by license on 15th 
July, 1814. 

On the 19th March, 1820, Thomas, son of William Poe, of Bally- 
mackleduff, was baptised, and on the 26th July, 1825, there is an 
entry of the baptism of William, son of William and Sarah Poe, of 

In 1822 the curate of the parish of Clonfeacle made a house-to- 
house visitation of the parish, and took a census of all who were at- 
tendants at the Parish Church, recording the particulars thus ascer- 
tained in the Parish Register. 

* Elaborate pedigrees of the several branches of the Irish Poes have been carefully com- 
piled from wills, deeds, Parish Registers, marriage license bonds and grants, bills in Chancery 
and in Equity Exchequer, and other documents, supplemented by information obtained from 
members of the Poe family, and will be soon published together with the early history of the 
family.— e. t. b.

The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. 


Amongst those in the townland of Ballymackleduff appear : 

"William Poe and wife and one child. 
2 Communicants," 
to which the curate has added, "offended with the Rector." 

These were William and Sarah Poe, and the youthful Thomas 
Poe, who had been baptized on the 19th March, 1820. 

On the 10th April, 1857, is entered the burial of William Poe, of 
Ballymackleduff, aged 75. 

This information, gathered from the Parish Registers, may be 
supplemented by the following marriage license bonds amongst the 
records of the Diocese of Armagh. 

Bond dated 27th June, 1782, by John Poe, of Drummond, Parish 
of Clonfeacle, and County of Tyrone, and another, on the issue of a 
license to solemnize matrimony between John Poe and Isabella Will- 
iams, of Drummond, spinster. 

Bond dated 13th April, 1841, by John Briars, of Kilmore, in the 
Parish of Aghaloo, and County Tyrone, and William Poe, of Bally- 
mackleduff, in the Parish of Clonfeacle, and County Tyrone, farmer, 
on the issue of a license for the marriage of John Briars and Jane 
Poe, of Ballymackleduff, spinster. 

From these materials the following conjectural pedigree of the 
Poes of the Parish of Clonfeacle might be sketched out :

feacle, Co. Tyrone, farmer; d.

There is also a marriage license bond amongst the Armagh Dio- 
cesan Records, dated 18th December, 1836, entered into by Thomas 
Poe, of Drummond, in the Parish of Clonfeacle, and John Burgess, 
of Finlay, in the same parish, on the issue of a license to solemnize 
matrimony between Thomas Poe and Susan Burgess, of Finlay, 
spinster; and this Thomas Poe might be tacked on tentatively to 

I 9°7-J The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. 65 

the foregoing pedigree as a grandson of Thomas Poe and Grace his 
wife by a younger son of theirs. 

However, for the present purpose it is enough to state that for 
what is substantially a century, viz., from the marriage of Thomas 
Poe, of Drummond, and Grace McAtaggart, in 1761, to the burial 
of William Poe, of Ballymackleduff, in 1857, a number of persons 
bearing the name of Poe lived in the parish of Clonfeacle, County 
Tyrone, whose connection with Major William Poe or one of his 
brothers cannot be shown. But it may also be added that the Poes 
of Dring, County Cavan, and the Poes of Clonfeacle, are the only 
Poes in Ireland hitherto noticed in the Public Records of whom such 
a statement can be made. 

Whence, then, did these Poes come? They did not spring from 
the ground like mushrooms in a night, and at a time when travelling 
was difficult and expensive they are not likely to have migrated to 
those inland localities from any great distance. 

The Hearth Money Rolls of Tyrone for the years 1665 and 1666, 
and many Subsidy or Tax Rolls of earlier date, have been examined, 
and no Poe has been found in them. The Hearth Money Rolls of 
about the same period for the counties which surround Tyrone, viz., 
Monaghan, Fermanagh, Donegal, Londonderry and Armagh, have 
also been examined, but with a like negative result ; and, as already 
stated, the Cavan Hearth Money Roll of 1664 does not contain anv 

So far the quest for unattached Poes — as they have been termed — 
had given no assistance towards solving the problem of the ancestry 
of David Poe, of Dring, but on the contrary, had evolved another 
puzzle of great difficulty, as to the origin of the Poes of Clonfeacle. 
It seemed indeed a case of attempting to explain "obscurum per 

Light, however, came from an unexpected quarter; and not only 
was the cloud of mystery that seemed to surround the Clonfeacle 
Poes dispelled, but a clue was seen to the solution of the original 

An examination was made of the returns for the parish of Clon- 
feacle of the census taken in Ireland in 1821 — which it will be re- 
membered was the year after the baptism of Thomas, son of Will- 
iam Poe, of Ballymackleduff, and the year before the curate of 
Clonfeacle had taken his census of the Church population — and not a 
single Poe was found within the limits of the Parish ! 

But the returns disclosed that there were a large number of Powells 
in the Parish ; and after a few moments' consideration it became 
manifest that those in the townlands of Drummond and Ballymack- 
leduff included persons who have been already referred to as Poes. 

For example, in Ballymackleduff the inhabitants of one house were 
returned thus : 

"William Powell, aged 34, farmer. 

Sarah Powell, wife, 27, flax spinner. 

Thomas Powell, son, 1. 

Elizabeth Carter, 25, flax spinner, servant." 

66 The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. [Jan., 

These are, of course, the "William Poe and wife and one child" 
mentioned in curate's census of 1822 ; the "William and Sarah Poe" 
whose son William was baptized on the 26th July, 1825 ; the "Will- 
iam Poe" whose burial at the age of 75 is recorded in the Parish 
Register under the date of the 10th April, 1857; and "Thomas, son 
of William Poe, of Ballymackleduff," baptized on the 19th March, 

Three families named Powell were at this time living in Bally- 
mackleduff and three in Drummond ; and in the returns for the latter 
townland, "John Poe, of Drummond," who was a party to the mar- 
riage license bond of the 27th June, 1782, now appears as "John 
Powell," and his wife, whose maiden name had been Isabella Will- 
iams, is now set down as Isabella Powell. 

In the census of 1831 these same Poes or Powells are found, but 
now figuring under the name of Poel. 

In the census papers for 1841, the enumerator by whom the papers 
were issued had indorsed that for William Poe or Powell (the hus- 
band of Sarah and father of Thomas) as being for "William Poel," 
but the head of the family signs it as "William Powel." In the 
townland of Drummond three of the returns are indorsed respectively 
"Richard Poe" "William Poe" and "Thomas Poe;" but though 
Richard and Thomas sign the returns as "Powel," and William as 
"Poel," the indorsements furnish strong evidence that amongst their 
neighbors they were known by the name of Poe. 

In the census return for 1851 William Poe, or Powell (husband 
of Sarah, and father of Thomas), and the several members of his 
family are entered as "Poel," but he, as head of the family, signs the 
paper as "William Pole." 

From all this we gather that "Poel" and "Pole" were variants of 
the surname "Powell," and that for a century, if not longer, "Poe" 
was a well known abbreviated form of the name in this part of Ire- 

Going back now with the knowledge thus acquired we find this 
corroborated in many ways. 

Thomas Poe, of Drummond, who was married to Grace McAtag- 
gart on the 4th January, 1761, obtained the marriage license by vir- 
tue of a bond dated 4th December, 1760, made out in the name of 
Thomas Powell, and signed by him as "Thomas Pooel." A will of 
John Poell, of Drummond, dated 2nd October, 1781, bears the signa- 
ture of John Poole; and the marriage license bond dated 13th April, 
1841, already mentioned, executed on the issue of a license for the 
marriage of John Briars, with Jane Poe, daughter of William Poe, of 
Ballymackleduff, is signed by the latter "William Pul." 

But, on the other hand, the marriage license bond, dated 27th 
June, 1782, entered into on the issue of the license for the marriage 
of John Poe. of Drummond, and Isabella Williams, bears the signa- 
ture "John Poe," and the marriage license bond of 18th December, 
1836, executed before the marriage of Thomas Poe, of Drummond, 
and Susan Burgess, is signed "Thomas Poe." 

It is quite clear, therefore, that several of the Northern Powells 

1907.] The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. 6j 

were baptized, married and buried under the name of Poe, and that 
some of them made use of the name when signing formal legal docu- 

Powell is a name met with in the County Armagh at an early 
period. William Powell, described as of "Castlepark, Tutberry 
(Tutbury), in the County of Stafford, Esq,"— one of the equerries 
of James I — was one of the original undertakers in the Plantation 
of Ulster, and was granted the "great proportion of Ballyworran" 
(now Ballyvoran), in the Barony of Oneiland, and County Armagh. 
He disposed of his interest before long to Michael Obbyns, but many 
persons bearing the name of Powell — not necessarily, however, re- 
lated to him in any way — settled early in the seventeenth century as 
tenants on the Plantation estates in the North of Ireland. This we 
know from a record still extant of the musters of tenants and re- 
tainers held about the year 1630 in the several escheated counties. 
Powells then appeared, armed with swords, pikes, and other weapons, 
in the newly created manors in the counties of Cavan. Fermanagh 
and Armagh ; but when the rebellion of 1641 broke out, they were 
despoiled of their goods, driven from their homes, and at least two 
of their number murdered. After the insurrection was suppressed, 
Powells were still found in the County Armagh, but the Hearth 
Money rolls of 1664- 1668 of Cavan and Fermanagh show that they 
had then disappeared from these counties. 

In the Hearth Money Roll for the County Armagh of the year 1665 
Patrick Powell appears at Magherlecoomore, in the Barony of Onei- 
land West, and William Powell at Ballymatrons, in the Barony of 
Armagh. In the Hearth Money Roll for 1664 the name of the lat- 
ter is given as "William Pole." 

As already stated, part of the Parish of Clonfeacle is in the Barony 
of Oneiland West, County Armagh ; and as no persons of the name 
of Powell, or any variant of it, appear in the Parish of Clonfeacle, 
or anywhere else within the county, in the Tyrone Hearth Money 
Rolls of 1665 or 1666, it is obvious that the Powells who are found 
there afterwards were a branch of the County Armagh family. 

Amongst the soldiers who served in one of the regiments of the 
Parliamentary Army in Ireland in suppressing the Rebellion of 1641, 
and thus became entitled to share in the distribution of the forfeited 
lands, were Jonathan Powell and David Powell. The association of 
the two names should be noticed, and the Christian names are such 
as might well belong to members of the same family. The names are 
found in a certificate of the Court of Claims, dated the 2nd of Janu- 
ary, 1668-9. This dealt with the claims of Colonel Henry Pritty, Cap- 
tain Benjamin Barry and the officers and soldiers of the same regi- 
ment, who had consented that the certificate should be granted to 
Henry Pritty, Benjamin Barry and the well known Sir William 
Petty, author of the Down Survey, and their heirs, in trust for the 
numerous persons therein mentioned, according to their respective 

Each officer and soldier had received from the authorities a de- 
benture for his arrears of pay, and was entitled to have the amount

satisfied out of the forfeited lands; but soldiers whose claims were 
small in amount sold their claims either to their officers or to outside 
purchasers, and did not actually receive any grant of lands. In the 
present case the total amount of the claims certified was £28,913:- 
16:9^2, and the proportion of this due to Colonel Henry Pritty was 
£2,604:2:1; to Jonathan Powell, £11:19:4; and to David Powell, 
£61 :8 :2. The lands allotted, out of which the claims were to be 
satisfied, were situate in the County Kerry, and the greater portion 
of them seem to have been eventually granted to Sir William Petty, 
the purchaser of the rights of most of the claimants, and no doubt 
they now form part of the extensive estates of his descendant, the 
Marquis of Lansdowne. 

On the 7th of June, 1693, Jonathan Powell, described as of Bally- 
aghy, County Armagh, gent, obtained from the Archbishop of Ar- 
magh two leases of See lands in the County Armagh ; one, a renewal 
of a former lease of the two townlands of Ballymatron Oughtra and 
Ballymatron Eightra, and the other, a demise of the townlands of 
Ballyaghy, Ballybrolly, and others. 

The two townlands of Ballymatron were in the occupation of 
William Powell at the time the Hearth Money Roll for the County 
Armagh was compiled in 1665, no doubt under the lease which was 
renewed in 1693, and Jonathan Powell was, we may feel sure, a son 
of William. 

This Jonathan Powell left four daughters and no son, but the line 
of the family was continued through his brother, Arthur Powell, 
whom we find as a party to several leases and deeds in the early part 
of the eighteenth century, and who lived at Drumbee, in the Parish 
and County of Armagh. 

The foregoing facts establish that there was a family named Pow- 
ell in the County Armagh in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, 
and that a branch of it penetrated into a portion of the County 
Tyrone, bordering on Armagh, and was there known from time to 
time as Powell, Poel, Poole and Poe. The question then suggests 
itself: is there evidence that any member of this family migrated to 
the County Cavan, and to the locality in which David Poe of Dring 
is found? 

An answer to this can be given with certainty. On the 8th of 
March, 1719, a license was issued by the Consistorial Court of the 
Diocese of Kilmore for the marriage of Jonathan Powell of the 
parish of Armagh and County of Armagh, gentleman, and Margaret 
Bennett, of the Parish of Drumlane, County of Cavan, and Diocese 
of Kilmore. 

This Jonathan Powell without doubt was a son of Arthur Powell 
of Drumbee and a nephew of Jonathan Powell of Ballyaghy and 
Ballybrolly. After this marriage he moved to Corr, in the Parish 
of Templeport, County Cavan, which adjoins the Parish of Kildallon, 
in which the townland of Dring is situate. 

Jonathan Powell of Corr made his will, dated the 31st of August, 
1756, and the provisions of it show that he was a tenant farmer of 
much the same class as David Poe of Dring, and with about the 

1907.] The True Ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe. 69 

same moderate amount of education. A bequest to his three sons, 
Thomas, Jonathan and William, of certain boards, planks and Joyce 
(i. e., joists), refers to some of them as having been brought by him 
out of the County Armagh and identifies him as a member of the 
Armagh family of Powell. 

Can there be any reasonable doubt, then, that David Poe of Dring 
was also a member of the Powell family in whose case the custom 
existed — as with some of the Powells of Clonfeacle — to use the con- 
tracted form of the name ? 

The signature — such as it is — appended to the minutes of the 
vestry meeting of the 12th of April, 1726, represents the name as 
"Pooe," while in the marriage license bond of the 31st of October, 
1741, it appears as "Poe." 

The "David" and "Jonathan" of Dring and Corr — living almost 
cheek by jowl — recall to mind the fellow soldiers David Powell and 
Jonathan Powell to the certificate of the Court of Claims: and it 
seems highly probable that David Poe of Dring was in fact a brother 
of Jonathan Powell of Corr and another son of Arthur Powell of 
Drumbee. In the case of the Clonfeacle family we find one brother 
signing his name as Poe, while another, living in the same parish, 
always made use of the original name of Powell. 

If the foregoing views are accepted, the remote ancestors of Edgar 
Allan Poe are to be sought for in the Powell family and probably 
had their origin in Wales. 

The surname Powell came from Ap-Howell, i. e., the son of How- 
ell, just as Pritchard came from Ap-Richard, Bowen from Ap-Owen, 
and Pugh and Pue from Ap-Hugh. David, too, is a characteristic 
Welsh name. 

If Edgar Allan Poe was descended from the Powells, he may 
have had not only bards but princes amongst his ancestors, and 
some of his admirers may imagine that this may have had some 
influence on his talents or his character. Others, however, though 
admitting that some qualities of mind and body may be transmissible, 
will hold that genius does not depend on parentage or ancestry, and 
whenever and wherever it is found, one must feel thankful for it, 
without attempting to speculate too much on the human sources 
from which it has come. 

Recent investigations by the present writer show that there are 
good reasons for believing that the Nottinghamshire family of Poe 
also derived its name from Powell ; and if this turns out to be cor- 
rect, it will strongly support the views above expressed. 

Therefore, although, as already stated, the paternal ancestry of 
Edgar Allan Poe cannot be strictly traced for more than four gen- 
erations, there is a presumption — approaching almost to a certainty 
— that the Poes of Dring, from whom he was descended, were a 
branch of the Powells of the County Armagh. 

The foregoing pages may not have added very much to our knowl- 
edge of the early ancestors of Edgar Allan Poe, but they have at 
least corrected some errors, and pointed out the direction that future 
investigations on the subject should take. 


JO Editorial, Society Proceedings. [Jan., 


We understand that a bill has been prepared by Senator Lodge, to be 
introduced during the present session of Congress, to establish a Board of 
Record Commissioners who shall have sole legal custody of all books of record 
and filed papers belonging to the United States; also to provide for a suitable 
Record Office building to which, when completed, all books and files in the 
custody of the Board of Record Commissioners shall be transferred. Un- 
questionably such a bill would be acceptable to the historical and genealogical 
societies of the country as well as to all who appreciate the importance of 
collecting and preserving public records. It is noteworthy that this bill has 
been prepared by the senator from Massachusetts — a State that has set so noble 
an example with regard to the collection and printing of its vital statistics and 
historical records, which other States, save Rhode Island, have been slow to 
follow. It is for the effect upon the rest of the States that we desire to see the 
bill enacted, and a Record Office established by the Federal Government. For 
such action on the part of the United States would be an object lesson to State 
governments and should stimulate them to greater activity in the same direction. 
Unhappily the importance of preserving and publishing historic records and 
vital statistics is not appreciated by the majority of the people, and it may be 
long before we see the matter properly attended to. 

Meanwhile the task which should be undertaken by the State is left to 
private enterprise, and to the historic-genealogical societies. But these are 
unable to accomplish it. They have neither the funds nor the equipment 
needful to prosecute it with energy and dispatch. So, while the work languishes 
the golden opportunity passes. The tragedy of the Sibylline Books is re- 
enacted. Records and vital statistics now available are being destroyed, and, 
when at last the priceless value of what has been irretrievably lost is realized, 
the opportunity to obtain them will be gone forever ! This is especially true 
concerning the vital statistics of the State of New York, for these — at least the 
older statistics — are mainly to be found in church and cemetery records, which 
are peculiarly liable to loss or obliteration. What should be done for their 
preservation must be accomplished soon. The New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society has become fully alive to this necessity. It has set before 
it the transcribing of the church and church-yard records of the State as the 
chief object of its mission. Already it has gathered into its archives nearly 
two hundred copies of such records, many of which it desires to publish. It 
has recently elected corresponding members in almost every county of the 
State in order to advance this work. But the funds needful to further its 
mission are still wanting. Is not now the time for the Society to appeal to its 
members and to public spirited citizens to come to its assistance?

The Executive Committee reported the resignation of Robert De Puy 
Farlee had been received Sept. 10, 1906. 

The speaker of the evening, Prof. Herschel C. Parker, Ph. D., of Columbia 
University, was then introduced, and gave a most interesting lecture, entitled 
"Alaska, and Explorations of Mt. McKinley," illustrated by many beautifully 
colored stereopticon views. 

The subject, Alaska and Mt. McKinley, was particularly attractive on 
account of the recent discoveries in that region. 

On account of the long rainy season, the hardships of the explorer are 
many. Much of their traveling has to be done by water, and at times it is 
absolutely impossible for them to proceed by boat, owing to the huge glaciers 
they encounter. 

Frequently, strapped to their staunch Indian ponies, they have to swim 
miles at a time. If, by accident, pony and rider become separated, it means 
almost certain death, as no man can long hold out against this swiftly moving 
icy water. 

Prof. Parker, who had recently visited Alaska, showed many beautiful 
colored views of this interesting country in all its varying characteristics which 
compared favorably with Norway in grandure of scenery, and in some cases 
even surpassed it. 

The native Indians, he said, were adverse to civilization, and rather 
shunned the white man. Although they seriously objected to have their 
pictures taken, the Professor had obtained several good ones, both of the 
Indians and their tents. The Totem Poles illustrated were most remarkable, 
and some of unusual size. 

The lecture certainly was a delightful treat, and every one appreciated it. 
The audience was one of the largest ever gathered together in our hall. 

At the close of the lecture a resolution of thanks was tendered to Prof.

index comprised about 12,000 names, and that the publication was in good 
condition and with an abundance of mortuary records on hand. 

President Dwight spoke as to the securing of material for the Record, and 
the portrait illustrations. 

President Dwight reminded the Board that the generous offer of Archer M. 
Huntington, of a building site on Washington Heights, which called for an 

On motion of Mr. Wright the Huntington proposition was referred to Mr. 
Drowne, the object in view being to hold the matter in abeyance for a short 
time longer, and to report at the next meeting. 

Dr. Dwight reported writing to Mrs. Russell Sage, having received a 
reply from her Secretary, and had prepared a letter setting forth the growing 
needs of the Society and its future sphere of usefulness.

Garland, James Albert, a member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society since 1901, died Sept. 13, 1906, at Hanover, Mass., of 
consumption following an attack of pneumonia, aged thirty-five years. He had 
been ill for a long time, but suffered a new attack in July, and was removed 
from his country residence on Prudence Island, in Narragansett Bay, to 
Hanover for special treatment. His wife was his constant nurse in his pro- 
tracted illness. 

Mr. Garland was born in New York City, Nov. 28, 1870, and was the son of 
James A. Garland, the New York banker, and Anna Louise Fuller. He was 
graduated from Harvard University with the class of 1893, and inherited an 
estate estimated at $3,000,000. After his graduation he entered upon a success- 
ful business career in banking and stock transactions and added to his fortune. 
He became known as a horseman of discriminating taste and published a book 
entitled: The Private Stable, Its Establishment, Management and Appoint- 
ments. He was also an enthusiastic yachtsman. In I901 he became the editor 
of the New England Magazine and continued in that position until his failing 
health compelled him to relinquish it. He was a member of the Union Club, 
the New York and Seawanhaka Yacht Clubs, the Players, Strollers, Racquet 
and Myopia Clubs of New York City, as well as of other clubs in Boston. 

James A. Garland married in Sept., 1893, Marie L. Tudor of Brookline, 
Mass., who survives him. Her genealogy goes back on both her paternal 
grandfather's and grandmother's side to the Tudors who married into the royal 
family of England. Her father, Frederick Tudor, was the son of Frederick 
Tudor, the son of William Tudor, a colonel of the Revolutionary army under 
Washington, who was the son of John Tudor, a descendant of Owen Tudor of 
Windsor, Ct. Besides his widow he leaves five children: James Albert, Tudor, 
Charles, Hamilton and Hope Garland.

for conscience's sake from Edinburgh and came to New York, where he mar- 
ried Anna, daughter of Hartman Wessels, a graduated physician and prac-

island in the East River, which derives its name from him but is spelled 
differently, being known as Randalls Island. Their only child, John Freling- 
huysen Jackson Randell, died in 1865. 

Van Vechten, Abraham Van Wyck, a life member since 1890, of the 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, died at the residence of his 
son-in-law, Samuel V. V. Huntington, at 69 E. 78th Street, New York, aged 
seventy-eight years. He belonged to the old Dutch family of New York de-

father of Pieternelle, whose husband, Gerrit Van Vliet, was probably the eldest 
son of Adrian and Agatha (Jans Spruyt) Van Vliet. Does anyone know who 
were the ancestors of this Elizabeth? martense harcourt Cornell,

Palmer.— Particularly wanted ancestry of James Palmer, of Westches- 
ter Co., New York, also maiden name of wife Elizabeth -— . Wanted, 
ancestry of Sarah Flewwilling (spelled so in deed or will), wife of Ajah Palmer 
(son of the above James), any dates of birth marriages deaths or revolutionary 
records. e. cowing, 24 E. Bayard St., Seneca Falls, N. Y. 

Smith-Cropley.— Information wanted of Mrs. Hannah Smith (widow) 
and of William Cropley, who were married Feb. 10, 1779 (New York Mar- 
riages n q-i) MRS. SARAH D. CROPLEY, 
nages, p. 93;. Marblehead, Mass. 

Stewart.— Can anyone give me any information about the ancestry of 
Admiral Charles Stewart, born in Philadelphia July 18, 1778; died in Borden- 
town, New Jersey, Nov. 7, 1869 ? His daughter, Delia Tudor, was the mother 
of Charles Stewart Parnell. . , 

Charles Stewart entered the merchant service at the age of 13, and rose 
from cabin-boy to commander of an Indiaman. He at one time commanded 
the Constitution, "Old Ironsides." He was the youngest member of the 
family, and was the son of Irish parents. I would like to know the names ot 
his brothers and sisters, and the dates of their birth. 

Charles Stewart, eldest son of Oliver Stewart, a Revolutionary soldier, was 
born (probably in New Jersey) about 1778. He entered the navy as cabin_boy, 
at the age of 13, on a ship commanded by his uncle His children were: Ezra, 
John Bruce, Charles, Wallace, Amanda, Ruth Ann, Melvina, Marcena, Martha. 
The coincidence that two Charles Stewarts, of Irish lineage, born about 
the same year, entered the maritime service as cabin-boys at the age ot 13, and 
that both families lived in New Jersey, leads me to infer that they were near 
relatives, if not the same person. I would greatly appreciate any information 
relative to the family of Admiral Charles Stewart, or of Oliver Stewart. It is 
mv opinion that the admiral was uncle to Charles Stewart, who was uncle to my 
grandfather, Oliver Stewart Edson. george thomas edson,

This gossippy little book is made up of mingled traditions and history, and 
therefore contains much of interest not considered important enough for more 
formal works. It tells of Killingworth and its birds, of whaleboat pnvateers-

way of various other things, half-forgotten, which it is good to call to remem-

Book Notices. [ja.n., 

Kingdon-Gould. Grafton Press, N. Y. City. 1906. Pp. 25, folio-cloth. 

This work is the first of the " Visitations of New York " to issue from the 
Grafton Press. These visitations when completed are intended to cover the 
pedigrees of all the old and prominent families of New York City and State. A 
sketch of the Kingdon coat-of-arms is given with history of its origin, and the 
pedigree of the present generation of Kingdon-Gould blood is therein given, 
tracing the Kingdon line back to the remote period of the 12th century. The 
pedigree of the Kingdon-Gould line seems to be authentiatively established 
back to John Kingdon of Coleridge, Co. Devon, 1596, and back of that upon 
fair presumptive evidence to the 12th century. The authorities for each claim 
in the pedigree are quoted at full in the back of the work. The line estab- 
lished differs from that given in Burkes' Commoners, but the variance is 
accounted for by quoted authorities. 

The general scheme of these visitations is heartily commended, and the 
fuller the authorities quoted in each case, the more valuable each work becomes 
and the greater credit they reflect upon those responsible therefor. 

Chronicles of a Connecticut Farm, 1769-1905. Compiled by Mary 
E. Perkins (author of " Old Houses of the Ancient Town of Norwich "), for Mr. 
and Mrs. Alfred Mitchell, the present proprietors of the Mumford and Wood- 
bridge Homesteads. With maps, portraits and genealogical charts. Boston. 
Privately printed. The Merrymount Press. 1905. 

This work is a limited edition of fifty (50) copies, and is a beautiful example 
of the possibilities of modern press work. It contains a complete history of the 
original estate of Col. William Browne of Salem, Mass. — map of same given— 
with boundary lines indicating subsequent divisions thereof, and the subject 
matter giving full information as to the successive ownership of the various 
subdivisions. There are also charts of the Mumford family, and Christopher 
families, in so far as they apply to the ancestry of Mr. Mitchell, with finely 
executed plates of various of his ancestors along these two lines. The work is 
fully indexed, and as an example of exhaustive narrative of a special line of 
ancestry, in a most artistic form, is unexcelled. Others able so to do should 
follow Mr. Mitchell's example, and leave to posterity memorials, of such 
undoubted merit and value, of their own particular families. 

The Hills Family in America. The Ancestry and Descendants of 
William Hills, the English emigrant to New England in 1632; of Joseph Hills, 
the English emigrant to New England in 1638; and of the great-grandsons of 
Robert Hills, of the Parish of Wye, County of Kent, England, emigrants to 
New England, 1794-1806. Compiled by William Sanford Hills and edited by 
Thomas Hills. New York. The Grafton Press. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. xx+713. 

In this comprehensive work the attempt has been made, with considerable 
success, to account not only for the Hills families enumerated in the sub-title, 
but also for a number of recent emigrants of that name, and for partial lines 
which cannot be traced to the emigrant. In the introduction the origin of the 
name, the common English ancestor and his coat-armor, are described and 
illustrated, and the appendix goes quite thoroughly into a report of the results 
of the searches in England made by the late Dr. George W. Marshall, York 
Herald. In the body of the book, all descendants of the Hills name are num- 
bered in Arabic numerals, and are brought forward, whether any more is 
known of the individual or not. The children of daughters have Roman 
numerals, and are not carried forward. The book is well made and printed, 
and has a triple index.

8vo, cloth, pp. 159. 

Following the By-Laws and Secretary's report, the genealogical part of this 
work begins with biographical sketches of Rowland Robinson of Rhode Island 
and his more important descendants, written by members of his family, and

accompanied by a genealogy of the line. The second part of the book deals 
with George Robinson of Watertown, Mass., and William Robinson of Dor- 
chester, Miss., and with various other founders of families, with a good deal ot 
genealogy, and some excellent illustrations of coats of arms, homesteads and 
Sther congenial subjects. The book is a model for other family associations, 
and, had it an index, would be almost perfect. 

Historic Hadley. A Story of the Making of a Famous Massachusetts 
Town. Alice Morehouse Walker. New York. The Grafton Press. 1906. 
1 2D, cloth, pp. xii+130. 

This is the second of the Grafton Historical series under the able editor- 
ship of Dr. Henry R. Stiles. It is written to inculcate love of one s own town, 
and to present in a simple form a narrative that any one may find time to read. 
In both these objects the author would seem to have succeeded. Hadley 
people as well as others must surely be edified by this spr.ghtly little volume, 
with its good index. 

A History of the Family of Cairnes or Cairns, and Its Con- 
nections. H. C. Lawler. London. Elliot Stock. 1906. Quarto, cloth, pp. 
xiv-f-292. f 

This valuable family history, accompanied by genealogies and illustrated 
by charts and beautiful representations of arms, castles and ancient tamily 
portraits, is a pleasant and romantic change from the usual genealogy. 1 he 
Carnys of that Ilk go back to the respectable antiquity of the years 1300- 13 10, 
and the account of the family in its Castle of Cairns, with a chapter on Some 
Contemporary Scottish History, is of much interest Willie Nicol friend of 
Robert Burns, married a Cairns, and appears in this .book; and [Sir .Robert 
Maxwell, whose romantic career was the foundation of Sir Walter Scott s novel 
" Guy Mannering." The volume is very attractive, but the index is insufficient. 
In the list of pedigrees may be found those of the families of Carnys of that Ilk 
and Crichton of Carnys; Cairnes in Galloway; Cairnes of Monaghan and 
Westenra, Lords Rossmore; Cairnes of Killyfaddy, Savile Lodge and Stameen, 
and Cairns of Kipp, Torr and Girstingwood. 

History of the Ohio Society of New York, 1885-1905. Prepared 
and compiled under the direction of Henry L.Burnett, Warren Higley.Lean- 
der H. Crall, Committee on Publication, by James H Kennedy, Historian. 
New York. The Grafton Press. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 663. 

In this handsome memorial an account of the organization of the Society is 
followed by its Proceedings by years from 1886 to 1905. inclusive. The Ohio 
Society was founded in 1885 under the name of the Ohio Association in New 
York, with General Thomas Ewing as its first president. A few days later the 
title was changed to The Ohio Society of New York. The success of this 
organization seems to have been assured from the start. Its membership has 
been recruited from among the most famous of Ohioans living in New York, 
and before it have appeared, as orator or guest, almost every man great in 
National affairs in the last twenty years. Many of the speeches are reproduced, 
and the appendix contains valuable papers, such as The Ordinance ot 1757 
and the ''War of 1861," by General Wager Swayne, and 'The Struggle for 
Freedom in Kansas." by General Thomas Ewing. The gentlemen engaged m 
the production of this work have ably fulfilled their duty. The letter-press, 
illustrations and make-up are all excellent.

Saint John, N. B. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 139-280. 

"A Sketch of the Province of Nova Scotia, and chiefly of such parts as are 
settled 1783," written in that year by Col. Edward Winslow, is the first docu- 
ment submitted, followed by Monckton's Report of his expedition against the 
French on the St. John in 1758, and John Mitchel's diary and field book of his 
survey of Passamaquoddy in 1764, both edited by W. F. Ganong The most 
important part of the pamphlet to American readers is the article byW.U. 
Raymond, LL.D., on Loyalists in Arms, with a roll of officers.

Edited by Benjamin F. Shambaugh. Iowa City. Published by the State His- 
torical Society of Iowa. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. xxv+341. 

A valuable historical document containing the above record of executive 
acts has recently been discovered, which throws much light on the territorial 
period of Iowa history. It contains lists of Militia Officers and others com- 
missioned by the governor, and its value to the historian will increase with the 
lapse of time. 

Suffolk Deeds, Liber. XIV. Boston. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 185. 

The period covered is 1681-1697. This is one of the best county publica- 
tions now in hand. It is greatly to be hoped that New York State will event- 
ually follow her New England sisters in the publication of deeds and vital 
records, and that they may in turn emulate us in the publication of wills and 
records of military and civil service. 

Covert Ancestry. Compiled by Edson Salisbury Jones. New York. 
Tobias A. Wright. 1906. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 20. 

This is a reprint from the Record, and is a study of the family which will 
be of assistance to those dealing with the genealogical difficulties of West- 
chester County. 

A Supplement to the General Register of the Society of 
Colonial Wars. Boston. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 386. 

This supplemental volume contains a good deal of additional material in 
the list of ancestors, and shows a considerable growth in membership since the 
last year book. It is attractively bound in white and red, and is well printed. 

Memoranda Relating to the McVickar Family in America. 
Edward McVickar and William Constable Breed. New York. 1906. 8vo, 

The founder of this well-known New York family was Archibald Mc- 
Vickar, whose son Archibald and grandson John came to this country. The 
genealogy was compiled in order to settle an estate, and may therefore be 
relied upon as accurate. The pamphlet is attractively put together, with the 
McVicar arms on the cover. 

Collections of the New York Historical Society for the 
Year 1898. Publication Fund Series. Abstracts of Wills, Vol. VII. New 
York. 1899. 8vo, cloth, pp. 553. 

In the present volume are Wills from June 6, 1767, to November 29, 1771, 
with Letters of Administration from January 6, 1767, to January 11, 1773. The 
publication of these wills, with their valuable cross-referencing, is of immense 
help to the genealogist, and will increase in interest and value when the 
difficult period in and after the Revolutionary War is reached. 

Minutes of the Common Council of the City of New York. 
1675-1776. Published under the authority of the City of New York. New 
York. Dodd, Mead and Company. 1905. 8 volumes, 8vo, cloth. 

The records printed in these volumes occupy a rare place in the history of 
municipal affairs in this country, since only Albany and Philadelphia can com- 
pare with them. From the beginning of the final English occupation to its 
close, the records are complete, and form a panorama of one hundred years of 
the city's life. The topical index is thoroughly well done. 

William Yates and His Descendants. Compiled by Edgar Yates- 
Old Orchard, Me. Put in type and printed by Edward M. Yates and Edgar 
Yates. 1906. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 47. 

William Yates, the founder of this family, was born August 30, 1772, but 
the exact place of his birth is not known. It is said that he was born in Scot- 
land. He married Martha Morgan, and her descent from Robert Morgan of 
Beverly is shown.

No. 2 


By Gen. Jas. Grant Wilson. 

By the death of Frederick 
Diodati Thompson, the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical So- 
ciety loses one of its trustees, a 
valued member for twenty-nine 
years who had its best interests at 
heart, and one who had also held 
the office of Secretary, performing 
his duties with zeal and intelli- 

Mr. Thompson was born in this 
city, December 17, 1847, in Lafa- 
yette Place, then a fashionable 
quarter. He was the youngest son 
of David Thompson and his wife 
Sarah Diodati Gardiner. It was 
there amid a delightful harmon- 
ious home circle that the greater part of his life was passed, 
and until the character of Lafayette Place changed under the 
northward expansion of trade. One after another of the old- 
fashioned brick houses were either transformed for business 
purposes or replaced by commercial buildings until the neighbor- 
hood bore but little resemblance to its former condition. Im- 
pelled by the changes, Mr. Thompson removed with his family 
to No. 17 West 36th Street, where he passed away, unmarried, 
October 10, 1906, after a long illness, endured with remarkable 

Mr. Thompson's education was obtained in one of the leading 
private schools of the day, and in moral training he had all that 
was the best in the example of the Christian lives of his parents. 
As a pupil he was obedient and diligent, evincing a special 
interest in history, an aptitude for which he probably inherited 
from his mother, the daughter of John Lyon Gardiner, seventh 
proprietor of Gardiner's Island. She was a lady of unusual 

o2 FrgdericJk D. Tho mpson , [April, 

gentleness and sweetness of character, endowed with a remarkably 
retentive memory tor mueh that appertained to the traditionary 
history of Connecticut and Long- Island, but especially to that 
beautiful and romantic domain — the home of her girlhood. Of 
numismatics he was fond, and while still a boy, he formed the 
nucleus of what later became a valuable collection of coins and 

On the completion of his studies, he entered the law school of 
Columbia College, from which institution he was graduated with 
the degree of Bachelor of Laws. Though admitted to the bar of 
New York, he never practiced his profession, but relinquished it 
to engage in financial pursuits. For a number of years he was 
identified with the Bank of America. Retiring from active 
business. Mr. Thompson devoted his time to literary pursuits; to 
travel at home and abroad; to the publication of the Ma^icino of 
American History, which he owned, and to the management of 
his estate on Long Island. His summers were generally spent 
at Bar Harbor, Newport and Lenox. During the last fifteen 
years however, he made many visits abroad, taking part in social 
functions in London. Paris. Homburg and Aix-les- Bains. 

His most important contribution to literature is a beautifully 
illustrated volume entitled //; the Track of the Sun, in which he 
describes his experience in a tour around the world. For the 
New York Times and the Commercial Advertiser he contributed 
in the year iqoo, a series of articles on the Orient, and in the 
pages oi the R.SCORD have appeared at various times papers from 
his pen relating to the families of Diodati, Gardiner and Thomp- 
son; the most noteworthy being an exhaustive one on the latter 
published in Vol. XXVII of the Rfcoko for January. 1S96. On 
motion of Benjamin Brewster, Attorney-General during Harrison's 
administration. Mr. Thompson was admitted to the bar of the 
Supreme Court of the United States; and Abdul Hamid II. Sultan 
of Turkey, appointed him Commissioner of the Ottoman Empire 
to the Columbian Exhibition at Chicago in [893, In recognition 
of services rendered in that connection, the Sultan bestowed 
upon him the Imperial Ottoman Order of the Mediidie, and at a 
subsequent time that of the Osmanli. 

Mr. Thompson never turned a deaf ear to the appeals of 
charity, but was always ready to assist in the amelioration of the 
indigent. Nowhere was he more appreciated as a philanthropist 
than in Lucca. Italy, the home of his Italian ancestors, to which 
he presented in igoo the sum of 50,000 lire for the construction of 
\\\ ambulance and for the extension of humane work. 

For his aid as a philanthropist in Italy, Pope Leo XIII, con- 
ferred upon him the title of Count of the Holy See; and in virtue 
of his descent from the family of Diodati of Lucca, the title of 
count was also bestowed upon him by the present ruler of Italy. 
Mr. Thompson was a chevalier of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre 
of Jerusalem, and a member of the Order of the Cincinnati, of the 
National Academy of Design, the New York Historical Society, 
St. George's Society, Society of the Colonial Wars, Italian Benevo- 
lent Society, Sons of the Revolution, and of the following New

York social organizations: the Knickerbocker, Metropolitan and 
Union Clubs; also of the college fraternity of Delta Psi. 

The ancestral seat of the Thompsons of Long Island is Sagtikos 
Manor, situated at West Islip, County of Suffolk. It comprises a 
tract of over 1,200 acres, including a neck of land called Appletree 
Wicke, the title to which was granted June 2, 1697, by King 
William III to Col. Stephanus Van Cortlandt, and by him sold in 
1758 to Jonathan Thompson. In Sagtikos Manor Mr. Thompson 
took a very just pride, a century and a half having elapsed since 
it came in the possession of his family. The house built in 1697, 
has lately been enlarged, the design of the new part being in 
strict accordance with its prototype, thus insuring to the whole 
the character of a mansion of the Colonial period. It witnessed 
many stirring events during the War of the American Revolution, 
and Washington spent a night there after his first election to 
the presidency. It is filled with mementos of the past, family 
portraits, and souvenirs of foreign travel. 

Frederick Diodati Thompson was descended from the Rev. 
William Thompson, a native of Winwicke in Lancashire, England, 
of a family originally of Northumberland, born in 1597; and of 
John Thompson, the ancestor of the Thompsons of the County of 
Suffolk, who came to Long Island in 1656. On his mother's side 
he was 'ninth in descent from Lion Gardiner and Mary his wife, 
daughter of Dericke Willemson Deurcant, of Woerden, Holland. 
Lion Gardiner was an Englishman, a military engineer who 
came to this country in 1635, and after constructing works of 
defense at the mouth of the Connecticut river, settled at Mon- 
chonac, now Gardiner's Island, which he purchased of the Indians 
in 1639'. Gardiner's Island was the first English settlement in 
the State of New York, and is still in the undivided possession of 
the Gardiner family, a genealogical notice of whom appeared in 
Vol. XXIII of the Record for October, 1892. 

From the family of Diodati of Lucca, Mr. Thompson was 
descended through his maternal grandmother, Sarah Griswold of 
Lyme, Connecticut, who married John Lyon Gardiner of Gar- 
diner's Island. Her mother was a daughter of Rev. Stephen 
Johnson of Lyme, and his wife Elizabeth Diodate of New Haven, 
whose father William Diodate came from England, where his 
name was anglized. He was descended from Cornelio Diodati 
who settled in Lucca in 1300. The Diodati family is now extinct 
in all the male branches except one in Switzerland, the head of 
which is Count Gabriel Diodati of Geneva. 

Mr. Thompson was a well-read man, and having travelled in 
many lands, besides passing much of his time in Europe, where 
he enjoyed an acquaintanceship with men prominent in art, 
letters and science, he was an agreeable and cultivated companion. 
In temperament he was calm, self-reliant, logical in his reasoning, 
and possessing qualities peculiarly his own. Though by nature 
conservative, in his sentiments he, nevertheless, kept abreast of 
the progressive spirit of the age, viewing all matters of public 
and private interest in an unprejudiced, broad-minded light. 
United to these attributes were his sterling qualities of honesty

and integrity; a love of veracity; a hatred of fraud and deception 
of whatsoever nature. He is survived by a brother, Charles G. 
Thompson, whose summer home is at East Hampton, Long 
Island, and by three sisters, the Misses Elizabeth and Mary G. 
Thompson of New York, and Mrs. Sarah T. Gardiner, widow of 
Colonel David L. Gardiner, who resides in Paris. Their son, 
David, inherited many of his uncle's most valuable heirlooms, as 
well as Sagtikos Manor, of which Mr. Thompson became the 
owner in 1894. 


Collected by James W. T. Scott, Philadelphia. 

The original purpose in compiling the Baxter Genealogies and 
.Notes published in this magazine in 1900, was discovery of the 
parents of Mary Schuyler, who m. Capt. John Baxter, and had a 
son Schuyler Baxter, b. April 10, 1761. That purpose has not 
been attained, but it is hoped that hereafter some information 
about her may be found, and that the finder will communicate it 
to The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. 

Since 1900 the following notes have accumulated: 

"Allice" Baxter and John Hunt, the latter described as of 
Westchester, were licensed to marry, June 15, 1670, by a docu- 
ment addressed " To the Justices of the Peace and Ministers in 
the Province of New Jersey or to either of them," and signed by 
Carteret with the seal of the province. They were m. by James 
Ballen, Justice, June 16, 1670. (At Perth Amboy?). New Jersey 
Grantees, Liber 3, p. 35. 

In April, 1763, there was an Indian alarm at Burnet's Ford, 
German Flats, Mohawk valley. Eckerson and Thomas Baxter 
responded to the call to arms April 24 to 28, with Capt. Jacob 
Klock's Company. Roger and John Baxter and Pieter Schuyler, 
Jr., did not, but subsequently were lawfully excused. 

Oliver Baxter lived in or near Westchester, N. Y., Dec. 24, 1779, 
when Gen. Pattison, British Commander of New York, ordered 
the militia colonel commanding, to send him to the city, to testify 
in Watts vs. Dickinson. 

Who was this Mrs. Baxter? "June 6, 1789, Mr. Bell called 
and represented Mrs. Baxter's situation as so low that I might 
never see her if I did not do it soon. I agreed to meet him in the 
ferry house (New York) for Elizabethtown Point and accompany 
him home. 'Twas night when we came to Mr. Bell's. Poor Mrs. 
Baxter lay a skeleton indeed — she may never recover — but much 
indeed does it seem against her. She too was gay and she is yet 
young. Useful lesson to the fluttering females of the neighbor- 
hood, if lesson were of any service in these giddy times. Most of 
the representatives of South Carolina were floating in this neigh- 
borhood this evening and all Sunday. The house was filled with

were pursued to detain Congress in New York June 8 set off 
for the Point in a chair (sedan?) which broke down. Upon the 
whole the jaunt was a disagreeable one, but it was right to see 
the poor, languid perhaps dying Mrs. Baxter. How lately was 
she as 2-av as the summer insect and how soon may any of us be 
as she is '* Diary of Senator William Maclay of Pennsylvania, 
I78Q-I7QI It seems to have taken from eleven o'clock a. m 
to five p. m., to reach Elizabeth town Point with a high wind 
direct ahead 'from New York. 

In 1790 Levi Baxter of Hartford County, Conn., settled m 
Sidney, N.' Y. The Baxter mill site was near the mouth of Carr s 
Creek, Delaware County, N. Y. , 

In i6s4 Mr. Baxter was a planter m Connecticut. The prefix 
Master (Mr ) belonged to all gentlemen. Master corresponds 
very nearly in meaning to the English word gentleman. In 
Connecticut it embraced clergymen and planters of good family 
and estate who were members of the General Court, those bred at 
a university those of sufficient education to manage the general 
affairs of the colony, either in a civil or ecclesiastical way, and 
those who had been sufficiently well born. Comparatively few of 
the representatives from the several towns, even though they 
might be returned year after year, were honored with the title. 
It may be observed by referring to our colonial records that there 
were scores of men of good family and in honorable stations who 
still did not possess all the requisite qualifications. It wasseldom 
that young men of whatever rank were called masters. Hol-

In May 1761, the town of Hartland, Hartford County, Conn.,

Thomas Baxter of the Fifth Pennsylvania, was in the Invalid 
Regiment, Philadelphia, April, 1779. This was organized in con- 
formity to a resolution of Congress, passed June 23, 1777, and at 
first composed of invalids and men within twenty miles of Phila- 
delphia incapable of field service, but strong enough for garrison 
and guard duty. Col. Lewis Nicola was in command. 

Thomas Baxter, weaver, West Town, Chester County, Pa., 
made a will probated Feb. 25, 1791, devising clothes to cousin 
John Mullin, and his watch and other property to his wife Rachel,

Pa., to Miami, Ohio, in 1806. 

In 1737, Edward Baxter bought 66 acres in St. George, New 
Castle County, Delaware, for jQ66 current money. Prior to 
March, 1747, he d. intestate and George Stevenson was appointed 

May 13, 1747, James Baxter m. Elizabeth Clark in Swedes 
Church, Wilmington, Del., and on Sept. 13, 1747, Joan Baxter m. 
John McGrub in the same place. In 181 1 William Baxter bought 
land in Delaware. 

March 26, 1756, the Maryland General Assembly passed an act 
to raise supplies for His Majesty's Service "towards securing and 
protecting the frontiers, engaging the friendship of the southern 
Indians and removing His Majesty's ambitious and perfidious 
enemies from their impertinent encroachment on his domain." 
Among duties laid was one on bachelors twenty-five years old 
and upwards worth £,ioo and less than ^300, who were to pay 
five shillings. If worth more than ,£300 they had to pay twenty 
shillings. Thirteen men in Baltimore Town paid this tax from 
1756 to 1762, among them William Baxter. 

In January, 1763, James Baxter was sheriff of Cecil County,

In 1669, Edward Baxter was master of the ship '■'■Albemarle" 
which the proprietors sent from England to South Carolina with 

John Baxter, one of Marion's band, is called captain, major,

North Carolina Baxter accompanied him. He was of gigantic 
size, and being dressed in full uniform at the battle of Shubrick's 
farm, S. C. (Quimby Bridge), 1780, was so conspicious that he was 
wounded five times. He represented Prince Frederick district 
in the legislature which met at Jacksonboro, S. C, Jan. 18, 1782.

It is only purposed in this article to give the first two or three 
generations of these families in order to prove the connection 
between them. It is hoped that fuller genealogies of both fam- 
ilies will be compiled at some future day. 


The Beck family was in England at an early date; in the Roll 
of Battle Abbey it is spelled Beke. Toustan du Bee was a dis- 
tinguished warrior, and follower of William of Normandy. Among 
the companions in arms of William the Conqueror was Gaultier 
du Bee, who obtained a grant of the Manor of Eresby in Lincoln- 
shire. This family is extinct, but there are several families of 
Beck in England, and all are supposed to be of foreign origin. 

1. Henry 1 Beck was the first of his name in America. He was 
from Dover, England; he came in July, 1635 (aged 17 years), on 
the Blessing and settled on Sagamore Creek near Portsmouth, 
N. H., on property that remained in the family until a recent 

In Hotten's Immigrants to America, page 108, is as follows: 
" Theis under written names are to be transported to New Eng-

land imbarqued in the Blessing, John Lester M r . the parties have 
brought Cert, from minist™, and justices of their conformitie in 
Religion and that they are no Subsidy Men." Of these Henry 
Beck was one. He died at his home in 1727-8 at the great age 
of no years. 

In the Portsmouth Church Records of 1693, we find that 
" Henry Beck occupied a seat under the pulpit." He married 
Anne Frost of Piscataqua, and had issue: 
Joshua. 2 

Thomas, b. 1657; d. 7 Nov., 1734. His widow Anne d. 
25 Feb., 1753, aged 94 years, at Newbury, Mass., 
where their descendants are to be found.

Mary, m. Deacon White. 

2. Caleb 2 Beck was a master mariner. He was living in Ports- 
mouth, 1674-9. The town records have the following items: 
"May 8, 1674 Laid out to Caleb Beck 13 acres beginning at his 
father Henry Beck's land. A Rebate to Caleb Beck 15 March, 
1679." He married Anna Mabie. It is supposed that she came 
as a passenger on his vessel. Her identity with the Mabie fam- 
ily of the State of New York is not established, — although there 
are reasons for believing that she was of that family. 

The portraits of Caleb 2 and Anna Beck are in the possession 
of the Van Cortlandt family at Croton-on-Hudson. They were 
the great-great grandparents of the late Theodric Romeyn Beck, 
M.D., LL.D., of Albany, the distinguished author of Beck's Med- 
ical Jurisprudence, who was the father of the late Mrs. Pierre 
Van Cortlandt. The portrait of Caleb 2 has a ship in full sail in 
one corner — a quadrant in the other; Anna Beck is dressed in the 
flowing robe of the period. There is a tradition that she objected 
to her husband's calling, and dreaded each voyage; at last he 
promised to make but one more — from that one he never re- 
turned. There is no record of more than two children having 
been born to them.

The records of Portsmouth are meagre, many having been 

It is supposed that Caleb 2 and Anna both died prior to 1698, 
for at that date their son Caleb left Portsmouth, and under the 
Mayoralty of Johannis de Peyster in 1698, he was made a free- 
man in New York. 

In 1701 he sold to his brother Thomas at Portsmouth "The 
land lying between the middle of my grandfather Beck's sixty 
acres, which was granted to my father Caleb Beck by the town 
of Portsmouth and upon record," &c. This deed is in the pos- 
session of the daughters of Capt. Andrew Beck of Portsmouth, 
who recently died there the last of his name in that vicinity. 

3. Caleb 8 Beck was also a master mariner, but he gave up the 
sea when he left Portsmouth. He married in New York 2 Nov.,

1703, Anna (Mol) Fairly, incorrectly called " Hannah Harley " in 
Dutch Ch. Marriages. In her baptism, on page 134, Dutch Ch. 
Baptisms, by a clerical error, her father is called Jan Pietersen 
instead of Jan Jansen. She was the eldest daughter of Jan Jan- 
sen Mol, and Engeltie Pieterse Mabie. She married (1) in New 
York, 5 July, 1699, John Fairly, an Englishman; another evidence 
of the transposition of names is that in Supplement to Marriage 
Licenses, p. 31:

In the Beck family bible at Croton-on- Hudson, the first entry 
made by Caleb* Beck was his stepson's baptism as follows: 

"John Fairly bp. New York 5 May 1700" 
which proves the foregoing records. 

Caleb* and Anna Beck settled in Schenectady immediately 
after their marriage, where her uncle Jan Pietersen Mabie had 
already located himself. They had issue all born at Schenectady: 
Anna,* bap. 7 Oct., 1704; m. Jacobus Van Vorst. 
Caleb, bap. 21 June, 1712; d. y. 
4 Caleb, bap. 24 May, 17 14; m. Elizabeth Truax. 

Engeltie, bap. 15 Dec, 17 15; m. Isaac Abramse Truax. 
Margaret, m. John W. Brown. 
In Capt. Caleb Beck's will, proved 8 May, 1733, he calls him- 
self " Caleb Beck of Schenectady Gentleman — wife Anna — daugh- 
ter Engeltie — Son-in-law John Fairly named as heirs of all real 
and personal property." Pearson says that Caleb* Beck had 
another daughter who married John Fairly; this is an error. He 
called him " son-in-law " as it was then the custom to so call 

4. Caleb * Beck, only son of Caleb and Anna Beck, bap. 24 May, 
1 7 14; d. 9 Dec, 1787; m. 1 Nov., 1747, Elizabeth, dau. of Abraham 
Truax and Christina de la Grange. She was b. 19 May, 1723; d. 
5 May, 1797. They had nine children. Of their descendants a 
partial genealogy is to be found in Pearson's First Settlers of 


Pieter Casparzen Van Naerden, sometimes recorded as 
Pieter Casparsen, was in New Amsterdam 1647. He is supposed 
to have been the son of Caspar Mabille, who is recorded as 
" Sergeant Caspar," and as "Caspar the Sergeant," and who was 
a witness of the baptism of the child of Joris Homes (George 
Holmes) on 6 Nov., 1650. He also in 1652 brought a suit against 
Jan Peek (after whom Peekskill was named). It is noteworthy 

1907.] The Founders of the Beck and Mabie Families in America. IOI 

that the suit was brought in English and he was ordered by the 
Court to translate it into Dutch, this proving that he was not a 
Dutchman. He has been supposed to be identical with the 
Huguenot Pierre Gaspar or Caspar, who in 162 1 signed at Ley- 
den the Walloon petition. This has not been proved. 

The Mabies of Putnam County, direct descendants of Pieter 
Casparzen Van Naerden, have a tradition that " their ancestor 
served on a cruiser on the coast of America which took a Spanish 
Prize near New York." In 1633, the West India Co's Ship Sont- 
berg, which brought Director Genl. Van Twiller, Govert Loock- 
erman, and others to this country, captured a Spanish cavaval 
the St. Martin, bringing it safely to New Amsterdam. It was 
probably the Soutberg on which Sergeant Caspar came here. 

There seems no doubt that they were of French origin and 
that their name was Mabille, Pieter Casparzen Van Naerden 
being the name given him by the Dutch, and both Dutch and 
English converted the name Mabille into Mabie. His sons called 
themselves Mabie. His daughter Metje is entered on both 
Dutch and French Church Records as Me by and Maybie. 

There were Mabies in Scotland at an early date. At Pres- 
tonpans 30 March, 1615, is recorded the marriage of Thomas 
Drummond and Janet Mabie. This does not prove however that 
the name was not originally Mabille. The whole Mabie family 
believe themselves of French ancestry. 

Of the sons of Pieter Casparzen, Jan Pietersen Mabie was the 
progenitor of all of that name in Schenectady and vicinity. His 
house is still standing in good condition in the Mohawk Valley, 
and is the oldest house there. He bought land in Schenectady 
before 1690. He was a surveyor, and we find, page 425 Ettg. Col. 
Mss. 1 Jan., 17 15, that "Fees on John Peter Mabies' warrant of 
survey" were paid. 

Caspar 8 Pieterse Mabie settled in Orange County and from 
him descend all the Mabies and Mabys of Orange and Rockland 
Counties. " The '76 House " at Tappan where Andre was a pris- 
oner was owned by his grandson Caspar Mabie. Hamilton 
Wright Mabie, so well known in the literary world, is Caspar's 
direct descendant. 

Pieter Casparzen married about 165 1, Aechtje Jans, widow of 
Abraham Williamzen of Amsterdam. At her first marriage, 27 
April, 1647, she is called Aechtje Jans Van Naerden, showing 
that she and Pieter Casparzen were from the same place in Hol- 
land — that they were friends is shown by his having been a wit- 
ness, 10 April, 1650, at baptism of her son Abraham William- 
zen, Jr. 

The children of Pieter Casparzen and Aechtje Jans were:

There are still Mabilles in France, well known families, sev- 
eral coats of arms are to be found, and undoubtedly the Mabies 
are of one of these Mabille families. 

A strong proof that Anna Mabie who m. Caleb* Beck was of 
same family as that of Peter Casparzen is that on his son's 
arrival in New York, he sought out the Mabie family, and later 
m. the granddaughter of Peter Casparzen. A stranger in New 

i g o7.] The Skillmans of America and Their Kin. 103 

York, he would naturally seek out his own kindred. More light 
may eventually be thrown on this subject since year by year old 
records are found by searchers in both the Old and the New

136 The Ancestry of Lieut. Heman Row lee, Sr„ of Orange County. [April, 




Contributed by Prof. W. W. Rowlee, Ithaca. N. Y. 
Dept. of Botany, Cornell University. 

Mr. Brainard's article in the N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Record, 
Vol. XXXVII, makes it possible to connect many descendants of 
the present day with the pilgrim, Henry Rowley. The period of 
migration, i. e., the last half of the eighteenth century, scattered 
families so that especially in the pioneer districts, the evidence 
of genetic connection is scant or lost altogether. Among the 
several pioneer Rowley families in New York State, the one to 
which the writer belongs has been most difficult of connection. 
This is the more remarkable because of the early date to which 
the family records, extant, run back, i. e., 1746. 

The Christian name "Heman" is rare in colonial records. 
Gen. Heman Swift of Cornwall, Conn.; Heman Allen of Corn- 
wall, Conn.; Heman Ely of W. Springfield, Mass.; and Heman 
Smith of Milford, Conn., a colonial soldier; were all nearly con- 
temporaneous with Heman Rowlee. Although the name has 
been used frequently among his descendants, no Rowlee before 
him, had so far as we know, borne it. 

The family name is spelled differently from the commonly 
accepted English form. The spelling " Rowlee" is used the first 
by Moses in signing his will, and his son Matthew signed in the 
same form, as a witness. During the eighteenth century, the 
spelling " Rowlee " was used by a considerable number of families, 
some of whom afterward returned to the original "ley." Heman's 
children and grandchildren were always insistent that " Rowlee " 
was right. One of his grandsons, Charles S. Rowley, wrote as 
follows in a letter to his aunt, dated Nov. 21, 1854: "You will 
observe that I spell our surname a little different from the old 
way. After I grew up, I saw some one write it in this way and it 
took my fancy and I have written it so since some ten or fifteen 

It seems therefore, probable that the spelling "Rowlee" has 
been used by some of his descendants continuously since the 
time of Moses, son of Henry the Colonist. It also appears that 
officials: ministers, justices and clerks, most often used the 
English spelling "Rowley," although the persons themselves 
persisted in writing the name " Rowlee." 

Family records, Surrogates' and County Clerks' records of 
Orange Co., all concur in showing that: 

Heman Rowlee was b. Nov. 14, 1746; he d. Dec. 26, 1818, and 
with his wife is buried in the Amity burying ground; m. Jan. 9,

1770, Lydia Seely, b. Dec. 26, 1749. She had a sister, Charlotte, 
who m. Isaac Seaman. His will in the Surrogate's office of 
Orange Co. is dated June 13, 1817, probated Jan. 2, 1819. He was 
a Revolutionary soldier, Lieut, in the Florida & Warwick Co. of 
the 4th Reg't, Orange Co. Militia, serving under Col. Hathorn. 
Heman Rowlee purchased 105% acres of land in Warwick, Orange 
Co., and gave a mortgage upon it Nov. 16, 1769, to William Wick- 
ham of same precinct for ^133. This mortgage was paid Dec. 13, 
1775. Heman Rowlee (a mason) and wife sold to John Post of 
Warwick (a farmer), 6y 2 acres in the town of Warwick for ^45, 
10 s., on May 29, 1800. Heman Rowlee took a mortgage from 
Wm. Adams of Warwick, upon 55^ acres, 32 rds., for $125, Jan. 5, 
1808. He and his wife deeded to Heman Rowlee, Jr., 25^2 acres 
in Warwick, June 15, 1814, for $550. Their children were:

There were other Rowlees or Rowleys contemporaneous with 
Heman in Orange Co.: 

Shubell Rowlee. He and his wife, Joanna, mortgaged to 
David Johnson of New York City, for ^"72 106^2 acres of land in 
the precinct of Goshen, May 22, 1775. The land was purchased 
of the said David Johnson on May 22, 1775. This mortgage was 
paid and discharged in 1786. (Orange County Clerk's Office.) 

Shubell Rowlee. His will dated May 21, 1795, and probated 
Sept. 21, 1799, alludes to himself as "weak in body," gives to his 
wife Joanna, and his son Jonathan, as heirs, his farm in the town 
of Warwick, Orange Co. He makes his son Jonathan and 
Frances Armstrong executors. (Surrogate's Office, Orange Co.) 

Jonathan Rowlee. He is recorded in the family records of 
Heman Rowlee as follows: "Jonathan's son, Shubell Arnold, b. 
June 10, 1792." (Family records of Heman Rowlee.) 

Amy Rowlee. (Possibly wife of Jonathan) Daughter of Caleb 
Smith of Warwick. Caleb Smith d. 18 18. Lydia Rowlee (dau. 

I 38 The Ancestry of Lieut. Heman Rowlee, Sr., of Orange County. [April, 

of Heman) witness to Caleb Smith's will in 181 8. (Private 
records of J. C. Coleman.) 

Harris Rowley and wife , had a son Reuben Milford, 

bap. Aug. 6, 1825; son Lorenzo, bap. Aug. 6, 1825. (Church 
Records, Orange Co.) 

William Rowley and his wife, Margaret Smith, had son 
William Smith, b. Jan. 24, 1776; bap. March 23, 1781. (Church 
Records, Orange Co.) 

Constant Rowlee. He was witness to the will of Robert 
Finn, April 25, 1780. (Private records of J. C. Coleman.) 

That Heman Rowlee and Shubell Rowlee were of close 
kinship appears evident from the fact that the names of both 
appear in the same family records, namely Heman's. They 
might have been brothers but from the dates, and the text of 
their wills, it seems more probable that Shubell was Heman's 

Matthew and Shubell Rowlee signed a call in 1755-6, for 
Mr. Ebenezer Knibloe as pastor, from the Western Society of 
Philippi (Carmel). 

The Register of Baptisms in the West. Soc. of Philips Patent 
has: Shubel Rowlee and his spouse had their daughter Patience 
baptised April 11, 1756. Matthew Rowlee and his spouse had 
their son Elijah baptised Jan. 2, 1757. 

Marriage Records of Amenia by Rev. Ebenezer Knibloe 
(N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Record, XXXIII, 47): Nathaniel Rowlee m. 
Kezia Davis, Sept. n, 1765. Abel Rowlee m. Susannah Connet, 
April 15, 1773- 

Military Records from Bureau of Pensions, Washington: 
Daniel Rowlee enlisted at Fredericksburg three successive years, 
i77 6 , T 777> an d 1778. His residence is given at Fredericksburg, 
Dutchess Co. His date of birth is April 20, 1759. He served the 
last year in Capt. David Hecock's Co. 

Elijah Rowley also enlisted from Pawling in Capt. Hecock's Co. 

The following connection between the Orange Co. and 
Dutchess Co. families seems most likely: Shubell of the two 
places is identical. Heman of Orange Co. is son of Matthew of 
Dutchess Co. Nathaniel, Abel, Daniel and Elijah may also have 
been sons of Matthew. 

Evidence of the connection of the Rowlees of Southern 
Dutchess Co. with their ancestors, is equally difficult. It seems 
most likely that Matthew and Shubel were sons of Shubel 
Rowley, Jr., and Hannah Brown, who as Brainard states (page 
100): "In 1734 Shubel Rowley appears to have been living in 
North Castle, Westchester Co." The records of the town of 
North Castle reveal the following: 

April 6, 1736, Shubel Rowley was elected Assessor, or as it is 
recorded (Sessor), and Highway Master. 

April 5, 1737, Shubel Rowley was elected Fence Viewer and 
Appraiser (Prisor) of damages for the old Poundridge. 

1907.] King Family Notes. 139 

April 4, 1738, Shubel Rowley was elected Fence Viewer and 
Appraiser of damages for old Poundridge. 

April 3, 1739, Shubel Rowley was elected Appraiser of 
damages and Fence Viewer for old Poundridge. 

Shubel Rowley and Hannah Brown had a son, Matthew, b. in 
Colchester, Ct, Oct. 8, 1720. If they had a son Shubel, he must 
have been b. after 1723, and probably after they left Colchester. 
Shubel Rowley of Orange Co., alludes to himself in his will as 
"weak in body" in 1795. He would have been 70 years old if 
b. in 1725. 

The writer has put forth every effort to bridge the two gaps 
but so far has failed to secure direct tangible evidence. It may 
possibly be that he is on the wrong track, but no other line seems 
to offer so much circumstantial evidence. 

Any information regarding the ancestry of this family will 
be most gratefully received. 


William King of Hawkchurch, Dorset, England; will dated 
16 June, 1625, proved 24 Nov., same year, mentions son John, 
who receives an estate in Coffenhays after the death of testator's 
wife Anne; son William has furniture after death of said wife 
Anne; sons John King, Henry King and daughter Mary King 
receive £$ each; daughters Elizabeth King and Margery King 
40 shillings each; wife Anne made executrix and receives residue 
of estate; witnesses John Gille, John Rochet and Christopher 
Cockling. The wife's maiden name was Anne Bowdiedge. 

Stephen Bowdiedge of Hawkchurch; will proved P. C. C., 
London, 16 Aug., 1620; mentions sister Anne King, brother-in- 
law William King, and their children Elizabeth, William, Mar- 
gery, John and Mary. 

Nycholas Sampson of Hawkchurch, had a son Gregorie, 
whose daughter Jane Sampson married in 1603, William Hull, who 
was Vicar of Colyton, Devon, in 161 1. He was the brother of 
Rev. Joseph Hull, who came to New England in 1635. 

William King of Salem, Mass., born in England, about 1595. 
embarked from Weymouth, Dorset, 20 March, 1635-6, with wife 
Dorothy, and five children: Mary, Katheryn, William, Hannah 
and Samuel, born between the years 1623 and 1633, bound for New 
England. They were under the leadership of Rev. Joseph Hull, 
whose name heads the list of passengers. Mr. Hull, a graduate 
of St. Mary's Hall, Oxford, was Rector of Northleigh Parish, 
Devon, until 1632. 

Was this William King the son of William King of Hawk- 
church, above mentioned?

1907.] Society Proceedings. 1 47 

The Executive Committee reported the election of Rev. John Cornell, 
Annual Member, Waldorf-Astoria, City, proposed by T. A. Wright. 

The Annual Report of the Secretary, Mr. Drowne, was as follows: Our 
membership now consists of 9 Honorary, 126 Life and 273 Annual Members, 
making a total of 408, being a gain of 4 names, and in addition thereto there are 
91 Corresponding Members. The additions for the year 1906 consisted of 
1 Honorary, 5 Life, 29 Annual and 80 Corresponding Members. 12 deaths 
have been announced, and two members were transferred from the Annual to 
the Life Membership class. Seven regular meetings were held during the 
year, at which interesting papers were read, and the attendance proved larger 
than ever before. The Board of Trustees had decided that the proposed con- 
solidation of our Society with the New York Historical Society would not be to 
our best interest. They had adopted a new constitution and By-Laws, which 
had been published in the Year Book for 1906. The Society is to be con- 
gratulated that its revenues for 1906 showed an increase over those of 1905, 
and that we are free from debt. 

Capt. Totten, as Chairman of the Executive Committee, reported in detail 
as to the changes in our Membership Roll and the revenue derived from the 
membership account, also as to the present standing of the Record account 
and the revenue derived therefrom. 

The Revenues from the Dutch Church Marriages and Baptisms, back 
numbers of the Record, Pedigree Charts, Advertisements in the Record, 
Library Duplicates, and the agency of De Vroedschap Van Amsterdam were 
also stated in full. 

The Hall rents amounted to $1,166.50, being a gain of $226.50 for the year, 
and the room rents $1,606.50, showing a gain of $107.50. 

The members are earnestly requested to support the Record by subscrib- 
ing to it, and an appeal was also made for donations to the Library. 

In response to the aid solicited for Mrs. Holton some $455.00 had been 
received, to date, which would be devoted to her welfare. 

As Librarian, Capt. Totten reported as follows: Total accessions to the 
Library for 1906, 1,413, of which 1,228 had been donated, that the books and 
pamphlets in Library now amounted to 14,594, $86.80 had been expended for 
binding, and $308.13 for 102 new books. The visitors for the year were 1,636. 

The report of the Treasurer, Mr. Morrison, was next in order. He called 
attention to the fact that since 1904 the Society had set aside for Permanent 
Investment $1,998.74 in addition to paying all debts and expenses. The net 
assests of the Society are $73,429.37, being a gain for the year 1906 of $2,767.35. 
The cash balance on hand was $659.74, and in the investment fund we had 
3 U. S. Steel 5% Bonds which cost $1,466.25. A full detail of receipts and 
expenses of the Society, with trial balance was presented — same having been 
duly audited. 

Capt. Totten then spoke as follows: — " It has been my pleasure during the 
past three years to be associated with Mr. George Austin Morrison, Jr., in his 
capacity as Treasurer, and also as a member of the Executive Committee, and 
I feel sure that I voice the unanimous spirit of the Officers and Members of the 
Society in expressing great regret that necessity compels him to cease to serve 
as Treasurer of the Society, and I move a vote of thanks to Mr. Morrison for 
the careful, conscientious and correct manner in which he has safeguarded the 
interests of our Society during his term of office." This was seconded by Mr. 
Wright and unanimously carried. 

The Necrologist, Rev. M. E. Dwight, read memorials of the following 
members who had died during the year: Isaac Townsend Smith, Edwin Bab- 
cock Holden, Walter Seth Logan, Russell Sage, Eugene Schieffelin, Abraham 
Van Wyck Van Vechten, James Albert Garland, Benjamin Doughty Hicks, 
Frederick Diodati Thompson, Mrs. Anna Jackson Randall, John Franklin 
Plummer and John Aspinwall Hadden. 

The Secretary read the report of the Registrar of Pedigrees, Mr. Win- 
chester Fitch. He stated that 110 Pedigree Charts had been sold during 1906 
bringing in $92.00, being double the previous year, and that 60 charts are 
now on file. 

President Dwight, as Chairman of the Publication Committee, reported 
hat it was the mission of the Record to publish as much as possible of the 


Society Proceedings. [April 

valuable material contained in the archives of the Society. That the great 
number of names that appeared in the material selected for 1906 added twelve 
(12) extra pages to the index which entailed much additional expense and 
that the publication had contained 324 pages of readiug matter and 49 pages 
of index during the past year. 

He announced that a complete subject index of the whole thirty-seven 
volumes of the Record had been prepared and would shortly be published. 

Dr. William Austin Macy, Historian and Chairman of the Research 
Committee, stated that Corresponding Members had now been secured repre- 
senting nearly every County in the State, and during 1907 he expected con- 
siderable activity would be shown in gathering church records. 

Gen. James Grant Wilson, Chairman of the Committee on Heraldry, 
reported " progress." 

On motion the foregoing reports were duly received and ordered on file. 

The report of the Nominating Committee was read, and the following 
nominations presented for Trustees for the term of 1907-1910: 

Henry Russell Drowne. 
George Austin Morrison, Jr. 
Ellsworth Eliot, M.D. 
William Bradhurst Osgood Field. 
Hopper Striker Mott. 

No further nominations being made, the Secretary was on motion authorized 
to cast one ballot, and the election of these persons was duly announced. 

The lecturer of the evening, Josiah Collins Pumpelly, A.M., LL. B., was 
then introduced, who addressed the Society on "Washington at Morristown, 
N. J., Winter of 1779-80." He described at length Washington's headquarters 
at Morristown, now over one hundred and thirty-three years old, having been 
erected by Col. Ford in 1774. This fine example of Colonial architecture had 
been well cared for and carefully preserved as a Memorial of Washington by the 
Washington Association of New Jersey. Attention was called to the original 
furniture still in the building, as well as to its large and valuable collection 
which included the original Commission of General Washington as Commander- 
in-Chief, dated June 19, 1775, and signed by John Hancock; as well as the 
costume and sword worn by Washington at his first inauguration in 1789. 

Mention was made of all those connected with the Revolution who were 
present at Washington's Headquarters during the War. The character of 
Washington, his life at Morristown, Mrs. Washington, and others were de- 

At the close of the address President Dwight made a few appropriate 
remarks as to the tribute to Washington's headquarters, and on a motion of 
Hon. Asa Bird Gardiner a resolution of thanks was unanimously passed, and 
the Society then adjourned.

had called on Mr. Archer M. Huntington and had received an extension of 
time to consider further his proposition until after our January meeting. 

The subject was then taken up and discussed informally, and on motion of 
Dr. Eliot the following was unanimously carried: "That in view of what has 
been said it is inexpedient at present to accept the generous offer made us by 
Archer M. Huntington. 

Secretary Drowne was appointed a Committee of One to communicate

150 Obituary. [April, 

Regular Meeting of the Society, February 8th, 1907. 

President, Rev. Melatiah Everett Dwight in the Chair. 

The Executive Committee reported the election of: Harry B. Hollins, 
Annual Member, 15 Wall Street, City, proposed by John R. Totten; Franklin 
Atkins Plummer, Annual Member, 4 Wall Street, City, proposed by John R. 
Totten; Charles Pryer, Annual Member, P. O. Box 647, New Rochelle, N. Y., 
proposed by H. R. Drowne; Glarence Ettienne Leonard, Annual Member, 
44 East 23d Street, City, proposed by Winchester Fitch; Arthur Moore Silber, 
Annual Member, 21 11 Fifth Avenue, City, proposed by Isaac Parish Smith. 

The Executive Committee reported that resignations had been received 
from the following members of the Society: Mrs. A. W. Berg, Dec. 26, 1006; 
Hiram Calkins, Jr.. Dec. 30, 1906; Louis Lincoln Drake, Dec. 31, 1906; Louis 
Charles DeRoy, D. D. S., Jan. 12, 1907. 

The President announced that in response to the call for funds to support 
the widow of the late David Parsons Holton, that he thought a sufficient amount 
had now been contributed to support her for the remainder of her days. That 
at the present time she was well provided for and was being well taken care of 
by a friend. That a donation of some 12 volumes of Parson's Manuscripts 
would soon be forthcoming. 

He then introduced the lecturer of the evening, Mr. Edward Hagaman 
Hall, the Secretary of the Historic Scenic and Preservation Society, and spoke 
of the good work done by this Society in regard to the preservation of the 

The Subject was " Cradle Scenes of American History in the Mother 

Many beautifully colored views were shown with the aid of the stereopticon 
and among many places illustrated were: New York, Liverpool, York, Durham, 
Northampton, Scrooby, Osterfield, Gainsborough, Boston, Holland, Leyden, 
Antwerp, etc. 

Particular attention was called to the various locations in England that had 
been associated with the ancestors of Washington, and to an ancient document 
of William Wassyngton the first of the name. An old seal was shown bearing 
the Washington Arms in 1360 as was also many later examples. 


King, Robert Morrow, died at his late home, 62 Madison Avenue, 
New York City, on Tuesday evening, January 1, 1907. He was born at Albany, 
New York, July 26, 1819, and was the son of Vincent Tuttle King and Phoebe 
Wiggins Youngs, of Orient, Long Island. Mr. King was a descendant through 
both paternal and maternal lines of the old colonial King family of Massa- 
chusetts, the head of which was William Kinge, an English Puritan, who 
sailed from Weymouth, Dorsetshire, in March, 1635, an d settled upon his grant 
at " Royall Side," now Beverly, near Salem (see King Pedigree). 

Mr. King's entire life, with the exception of the last few years, was spent 
at Albany, where from early youth he was prominently identified with the 
business interests of the city, taking an active part in all its charitable and 
public matters, and being a generous contributor to all movements for its 
advancement and improvement. He was public spirited, yet not desirous of 
publicity; a man of strong, natural ability with clear views on all subjects; true 
to the principles of the party with which he acted for over sixty years, yet 
universally declining when offered political preferment. Outliving almost his 
entire generation, the last years of his advanced age were spent in comparative 
privacy, but with a mind unclouded and ever alert, he followed the questions of 
the day, never losing his interest in contemporary matters. A courteous 
gentleman moving thus quietly in the busy walks of life, cherished by his 
friends and beloved by his family, Mr. King leaves the memory of a pure life 

1907.] Note, Queries. 151 

and the priceless legacy of an untarnished name. He was a member of the 
Second Presbyterian Church of Albany. 

Mr. King was twice married. His first wife was Harriet Morgan Steele, 
daughter of Lemuel Steele, Jr., of Albany (a descendant of Mr. John Steel, the 
first Colonial Secretary of Connecticut, 1636, through his grandson Samuel 
Steel of Hartford, who married Mary Bradford, granddaughter of Governor 
Bradford of the M ay flowre— Steele Gen.), by his wife Tabitha Barnard of 
Hartford, Conn., granddaughter of Capt. John Barnard of the Revolutionary 
Army, and a member of the Society of Cincinnati. Mr. King had four children 
by this marriage, three of whom survive him: Frank Barnard, Florence Steele 
and Harriet Gertrude. His second wife was Susan Benedict Barnum, only 
surviving child of Egbert Westcott Barnum of Albany (grandson of Lieut. Eli 
Barnum of the Revolution, and a descendant of Thomas Barnum of Fairfield, 
Conn., 1685), by his wife Caroline Matilda Benedict, daughter of Lewis Benedict, 
Sr., of Albany (a descendant of Lieut. Thomas Benedict, born 161 7, and Mary 
Bridgum, the colonists — see Benedict Gen.), and Susan Stafford, eldest child of 
Spencer Stafford of Albany, and Dorothea Hallenbake (a descendant of Caspar 
Jacobse Halenbeek, an early settler at Albany; will dated 1685), and grand- 
daughter of Joab Stafford, Esquire, of Stafford Hill, Cheshire, Mass., a Colonel 
in the Revolution — see Stafford Gen. Mr. King had four sons by this marriage, 
three of whom are living: Robert Vincent, Egbert Barnum and Gerard Stafford. 


Halley Family. — Of direct bearing on the history of the Halley and 
McPike families, as printed in the Record, Vols. XXIX, pp. 13-18; XXXIV, 
pp. 52-56, 106-108; XXXVII, p. 237, is the recent discovery of the will of 
Sybilla Halley, proved Nov. 13, 1772, P. C. C, Register Taverner, folio 406, 
which mentions her two granddaughters, Sybilla Parry and Sarah Parry, who, 
therefore, were great-granddaughters of Dr. Edmond Halley (1656-1742).

'•The Conquest of Quebec." 

Mr. Editor: — I have just completed a sketch of Dr. Thomas Young, 
one of the Revolutionary patriots, who was active in public affairs in Boston 
with Otis, the Adamses, Quincy, Warren, and the rest, during the eventful 
years 1768-1774. This sketch is soon to appear in the Transactions of The 
Colonial Society of Massachusetts. In the preparation of this sketch I have 
found several references to an epic poem which Dr. Young wrote entitled 
" The Conquest of Quebec." One or two lines from this poem were quoted by 
Egbert Benson in an address which he delivered before the New York 
Historical Society in 1816; and I have found other references to it. My efforts, 
however, to find the full text of the poem have been unsuccessful. Mr. 
Wilberforce Eames of the Lenox Library, and Mr. Herbert Putnam of the 
Library of Congress, are desirous, as I am, of securing the text of this poem, 
which may have appeared only in the newspapers of about 1760 or '61. At 
that time Dr. Young was living in Amenia in Dutchess County, and naturally 
would have used either the Albany or New York City newspapers, unless a 
newspaper was published in some city or town nearer to Amenia than the two 
places I have named. 

I venture to ask you to insert in The New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Record a query asking for the text of Dr. Young's poem, or 
for a reference to a newspaper or other place where it would be found. 
Very truly yours, 

henry h. edes, 28 State Street Boston, Mass.

Von Olinda. Information is desired concerning the ancestry of Peter 
Donielse Von Olinda, who m. Hilletie Von Slyck, and who lived in the vicinity

Register of the Daughters of Holland Dames. This Society is 
about to publish the records of its members, in excellent style and after much 
careful revision. Enough copies will be printed to cover subscriptions only. 

Freese Families. By John Wesley Frees. Published jointly by the 
author and Benjamin Marsh Frees and Edwin Abraham Frees, all great- 
grandsons of Abraham Frees, 1749-1800. Caustic-Claflin Co., Printers. Cam- 
bridge, Mass. 8vo, cloth, pp. 78. 

This book contains considerable history relating to Friesland and the 
Freese family which will prove valuable to the future genealogist of this 
family. A record of six generations of the descendants of John Frees who set- 
tled in Deer Island, Mass., (now Maine), is given with many portraits, family 
coat-of-arms, etc. It is to be regretted that so valuable a book lacks an index 
of names. 

History and Genealogy of the Rix Family of America, Con- 
taining Biographical Sketches of both Males and Females. Com- 
piled by Guy S. Rix, Concord, N. H. New York. The Grafton Press. 1906. 
8vo, cloth, pp. xiii+240. 

This genealogy treats of William and Thomas Rix (and their descendants), 
sons of Robert Rix of Canninghall, England, the only ones coming to this 
country spelling their name "Rix." The compiler makes apology in his pre- 
face for the incompleteness of the record, but the work itself shows painstaking 
care and method in arrangement. The book is well printed and bound, has a 
complete index of names. It is illustrated with a beautiful print in colors of 
the family coat-of-arms and many half-tone portraits. There is more than the 
usual amount of biography in this book which will interest members of the 

Amos Richardson of Boston and Stonington, with a contribu- 
tion to the History of his Descendants and the allied Families 
of Gilbert, Edwards, Yarrington, and Rust. By Rosell L. Richard- 
son. Published by the author. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 147. 

Here is another genealogy compiled because the compiler loved the work. 
Amos Richardson first appears in America as witness to a deed in Boston in 
1639, and this book gives the record of eight generations of his descendants in 
one line. There is an appendix containing short records of four allied families, 
and a very good index. 

The Prindle Genealogy. Embracing the Descendants of William 
Prindle, the first settler in part for six, seven and eight generations, and also 
the Ancestors and Descendants of Zalmon Prindle for ten generations, cover- 
ing a period of two hundred and fifty-two years, 1654 to 1906. Compiled by 
Franklin C. Prindle, U. S. N. New York. The Grafton Press. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. xvii+335. 

After an interesting preface on the history of the Pringle family in Scot- 
land, the book contains the genealogical record of the descendants of William 
Pringle, or Prindle, the emigrant ancestor and progenitor of the family in 
America, who settled in New Haven, Conn., where he took the oath of fidelity 
to the New Haven Jurisdiction, April 4, 1654, followed by an account of un- 
located branches of the family and an appendix of miscellaneous records and 
biographical notes, in which may be found a list of those soldiers whose names 
appear upon the official records of the Pension Office, War and Treasury De-

in the achievement of American independence. The book is well printed and 
bound and the names are indexed.

W. G. Aikman, great grandson of the authoress. The index is by the Librarian 
of the Society. 

The Ogden Family in America, Elizabethtown Branch. Com- 
piled by the late William Ogden Wheeler and edited by Lawrence Van Alstyne 
and Rev. Charles Burr Ogden. Philadelphia. J. P. Lippincott Company. 1907. 
2 vols. Quarto, cloth. 

The result of many years of patient effort made by the late William 
Ogden Wheeler in tracing his mother's descent from "Good Old John Ogden" 
of Elizabethtown, N. J., will be seen in these volumes. After the death of Mr. 
Wheeler, the immense amount of genealogical information collected by him 
was entrusted by his sisters to Mr. Lawrence Van Alstyne of Sharon, Conn., 
and to the Rev. Charles Burr Ogden, Ph.D., of Woodstown, N. J., for prepara- 
tion for the press. Although Mr. Wheeler had spent many years in endeavor- 
ing to connect the immigrant John Ogden with his English ancestry, it was not 
until after several years of further research that this was accomplished, and the 
family traced back five generatiens in England, as is shown in the present 
volume. Special care has been taken to make this work pleasing to the eye, 
and the coat-of-arms and title-page, executed in colors, and the head-pieces for 
the introductory chapters, and succeeding chapters, with many portraits and 
views, will be found to add greatly to its attractiveness. Volume I sets forth 
the history and genealogy of the family, and Volume II consists of 38 charts, 
which exhibit the English ancestry and the connection with other Ogden 
families. The genealogy is sold at $7.50 and the charts at $2.50, and the 
volumes may be bought separately. Unbound charts may also be had at fifty 
cents each, of Mr. Lawrence Van Alstyne, Sharon, Conn. 

The Homes of Our Ancestors, Stonington, Conn. Grace Denison 
Wheeler. Salem, Mass. Newcomb & Gauss. 8vo, cloth, pp. 286. 

This very pleasing volume was intended as a companion book to Judge 
Wheeler's " History of Stonington," as that valued work is without illustrations. 
Some hundred and sixty illustrations of old or famous Stonington houses 
illuminate the text, which is full of genealogical and historical material. The 
book is tastefully bound and well printed, and should be owned by anyone who 
possesses a copy of the History of Stonington. 

Annals of Oxford, New York, with Illustrations and Bio- 
graphical Sketches of Some of Its Prominent Men and Early 
Pioneers. Compiled, edited and published by Henry J. Galpin, Oxford, N. Y. 
Times Book and Job Printing House. " 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 568. 

A large amount of interesting and varied material is gathered here, not 
in the orderly sequence of an historical narrative, but as a coTtection of notes 
and reminiscences of the town and townsfolk, interspersed with considerable 
genealogy. Oxford is situated in that part of Chenango County included in the 
" Chenango Twenty Towns," which were ceded to the State by the Oneida 
Indians in a treaty by Governor George Clinton in 1788. The town was formed 
in 1793. It will thus be seen that a volume of New York town history beginning 
at this date will account for many New Englanders who disappear from the 
records of their native towns. Among famous New England families whose 
Oxford genealogy is contained herein, are, Bulkeley, Dickinson, Baldwin, Cary,

Loomis, Hopkins, Judson, Kinney, Hunt, Mead and Pendleton. Some promi- 
nent New York names are, Ten Broeck, Van Wagenen, Sherwood, Havens and

Papers and Addresses. William Gilbert Davies, S.B., LL.D. New 
York. Robert Grier Cooke. 1907. 12D, cloth, pp. 353. 

The author has here presented a collection of his scattered publications, 
which cover a wide range of subject and treatment. Some of them deal with 
early history and customs of New Netherland, and some were read before the 
St. Nicholas Club. Those essays most pertinent to the history of this colony 
and State are, The Settlement of New Amsterdam, Historical Sketch of Christ 
Church, New York City, Ticonderoga and Crown Point, and New York in 1801. 
The type and general make-up of the book are excellent, and the essays will 
prove to be most pleasant and instructive reading. 

Historical and Genealogical Miscellany. Data Relating to the 
Settlement and Settlers of New York and New Jersey. John E. Stillwell, M. D. 
Vol. II. New York. 1906. Quarto, cloth, pp. 503. 

This eagerly-awaited work justifies one's ardent expectations. This 
volume is rich in Monmouth County material, as the following excerpts from 
the table of contents will show. Records of the Baptist Church, Middletown, 
N. J., Inscriptions, Burying Grounds of Monmouth County, Bible Records, 
Patents for Lands in Quit Rents, Abstracts from Men's Monthly Meetings, 
Shrewsbury, besides Church, Court and Tombstone Records of Burlington, N. J. 
The work will prove a mine of information for students of New Jersey records, 
and its compilation and arrangement reflect the greatest credit upon Dr. 

The Journal of American History. Produced by the Associated 
Publishers of American Records, New Haven, Conn. Quarterly, $2.00 per 

This is the first number of a quarterly magazine de luxe, and is a very 
beautiful production. The leading article is on the American Flag, telling the 
story of its evolution, handsomely illustrated in color. From its long table of 
contents we glean the following: The First American Soldiers, Journal of Peter 
Pond, Letters of a Sergeant in the War of 1812, Memoirs of a Southern Con- 
gressman, and The "Miracle" of the First Steamboat. The illustrations are 
numerous and well executed, the type and paper are good, and the cover shows 
a production in color of the arms of Thomas Hooker, one of the five authors of 
"the first written constitution in the world, creating a government," and not 
the only author, as the index appears to state. 

Proceedings of the New York State Historical Association. 
Including Indian Geographical Names, by E. M. Ruttenber. Vol. VI. New- 
burgh. Journal Print. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 243. 

The first part of this volume contains an account of the seventh annual 
meeting, with constitution, by-laws and list of members. There are also 
articles on The Character of Gen. Sullivan, the Organization of Sullivan's 
Expedition, and a Bibliography thereof, with numerous other short articles of 
interest. Mr. Ruttenber's scholarly work on Indian Geographical names 
occupies about half of the volume, and will be found of great interest and 

The Vought Family, Being an Account of the Descendants 
of Simon and Christina Vought. William Gordon Ver Planck. Edition 
of one hundred copies. Tobias A. Wright. 1907. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 27. 

This is the genealogy of a Palatine family, which, after suffering the 
unmerited hardships thrust upon the early Lutheran emigrants, at sea and 
after their landing in New York, settled in Western New Jersey, in either 
Middlesex or Hunterdon County. The pamphlet exhibits considerable 
research, resulting in a good deal of biographical and other material, and its 
statements are most careful and exact. There is a good index.

The Parentage and English Progenitors of Nathaniel Coney 
of Boston, Mass. Thomas Hills. Boston. David Clapp & Son. 1906. 
8vo, pamphlet, pp. 13. 

This is a reprint from the Register, with some additions, and sets forth 
search for the English ancestry of Nathaniel Coney, connecting him with the 
Coney and Hawkredd families of Boston, Lincolnshire, England. 

A Century of Meriden. "The Silver City." Issued as the 
Official Souvenir History by Authority of the General Committee at the Cen- 
tennial Celebration, June 10 to 16, 1906. Compiled by C. Bancroft Gillespie. 
Early History by George Munson Curtis. Meriden. Journal Publishing Co. 
1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 434-608-184. 

In this very complete volume the material has, probably for convenient 
reference, been divided into three parts. The first part contains a full and 
interesting early history of Meriden, with vital records, tombstone inscriptions, 
muster rolls, with personal notices of the soldiers, and lists of public officials, 
with town maps, birds-eye views and many pictures of old houses. Part II 
has an article on Meriden in the Civil War, by Col. Charles L. Upham, and 
one on the Spanish-American War, and contains a large number of biographies. 
Part III deals with the manufactories of Meriden. Each part is separately 
indexed, but the indices are all placed in the back of the book. The second 
and third parts of the history are also fully illustrated, and the whole publi- 
cation is very creditable to those engaged in its production. 

A History of Mattituck, Long Island, N. Y. Rev. Charles E. 
Craven. Published for the author. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 400. Price, $1.50 
and $2.50. 

Mattituck is described by the author as being one of the second genera- 
tion of villages in Suffolk County, N. Y., and he defines this grouping by 
saying that the second generation comprises the earliest settlements apart 
from the town centres. The earlier villages, having their town records, afford 
much more material for the historian than the later group. In spite of this 
serious drawback Mr. Craven has been able to compile a very complete and 
valuable history. Amongst the genealogical treasures contained in it are some 
150 pages of church records of baptisms, marriages and deaths, never before 
printed. Mr. Craven is evidently a genealogist, and he deals with that part of 
his history so as to tell us the things we most desire to know. The book will 
give great pleasure to the people of Mattituck, Aquebogue (Jamesport) and 
neighboring towns, as well as to students. The illustrations are numerous and 
good, the index, which does not cover the church records, is otherwise excellent, 
and the price of the book is remarkably low. Copies may be had of the author.

The Cambridge Historical Society's Publications, I. Pro- 
ceedings, June 19, 1905-April 24, 1906. Cambridge, Mass. Published by the 
Society. 1906. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 102. 

This new Society is constituted for the purpose of collecting, publishing 
and distributing Cambridge records, and any resident of that city is eligible for 
membership, except that its regular membership is limited to two hundred. 
Its first President is Richard Henry Dana, and its Vice-Presidents are Thomas 
Wentworth Higginson, Alexander McKenzie and Archibald M. Howe. The 
Secretary is Frank Gaylord Cook. This number contains a paper by Professor 
Charles Eliot Norton, and addresses by various members and others. A list of 
seventy-nine historic sites is given. We hope that all encouragement will be 
given to the new Society by its neighbors, and that it may have a long and 
successful life. 

Reverend Thomas Robbins, D.D. An Address delivered before 
the Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford, October 2, 1906. Rev. W. 
UeLoss Love, Ph.D. Hartford. Published by the Society. 1906. 8vo, 
pamphlet, pp. 35. 

In this memoir, full credit is given Dr. Robbins for the founding of the 
Connecticut Historical Society, of which he was the first Corresponding Secre- 
tary, and afterwards, for twelve years, its Librarian. It was in 1822 that he 
made his memorable address advocating the formation of such a Society in 
Hartford, and after its foundation its welfare was very dear to him. The 
deposit of his library of about 7,000 volumes with the Society was of great 
benefit to it at a critical time, and helped to give it its present high standing. 

Colorado Volunteers in the Civil War. The New Mexico 
Campaign in 1862. William Clarke Whitford, D.D. Denver. The State 
Historical and Natural History Society. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 159. 

, At the outset of the Civil War, it was the confident hope of Southern 
leaders to split off from the Union the territories of Colorado, New Mexico, 
Utah and a large part of the Pacific Coast. Their reasons for this hope and 
the means they adopted to fulfill it, with the great issues turning upon the 
Union victory of La Glorieta, are most interestingly set forth in this work, 
which gives us insight into war-time conditions but little known in the East. 
The book is fully illustrated, one of the most interesting portraits being that of 
the famous " Kit " Carson. A photograph of the battleflag of the First Colorado 
Regiment is reproduced as a frontispiece. 

The History of Redding, Connecticut. Charles Burr Todd. 
New York. The Grafton Press. 1906. Quarto, cloth, pp. v+303. 

This is the second edition of this work, the first having appeared in 
1880, and it contains a great deal of genealogical material, including Revo- 
lutionary data, not printed in the earlier publication. The present issue also 
gives us fourteen pages of index. The parish registers of the Congregational 
Church of Redding from 1734 to 1780 is included. Some notes on the condition 
and present whereabouts of public records of Redding are given at pp. 221, 222, 
and the thoughtfulness of the author in printing these may well be emulated 
by others. 

Register of the Society of Sons of the Revolution in the 
State of Missouri, 1904-1906. Compiled by Henry Cadle, Secretary. St. 
Louis. Woodward & Tiernan Printing Co. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 212. 

The greatest credit is due to the Secretary of the Missouri Society for 
giving us in this volume what is probably the most historically valuable pro- 
duction of its kind. There are almost as many illustrations as pages of reading 
matter, and these are portraits of Revolutionary ancestors, pictures of old 
homesteads, arms, family Bible records, and heirlooms of varions kinds. In the 

1907.] Book Notices. I 5 7 

latter portion of the book the obituaries of members are accompanied by their 
portraits. The flag of the General Society is shown in color as the frontispiece. 

The Origin and Early History of the Family of Poe or Poe, 
with full Pedigrees of the Irish Branch of the Family, and a 
Discussion of the True Ancestry of Edgar Allen Poe, the Amer- 
ican Poet. Sir Edmund Thomas Bewley, M.A., LL.D., F.R.S.A.I. Dublin. 
Printed for the author by Ponsonby & Gibbs. 1906. Quarto, cloth, pp. xiv+88. 

The compiler sets forth the history of various families of this name, and 
biographies of the more important members are given. There are also notes 
on the Powell family, from which some Poes are derived. The question of the 
ancestry of Edgar Allan Poe having been fully discussed by the same author 
in the January Record, the subject will not be treated here. There is a good 
index, and three charts setting forth all known Poe descendants of Anthony 
Poe of Popplewick, Notts, complete the book. 

"The House of God." Historical Discourse on the Sesqui- 
Centennial of the Old South Meeting-House of Newburyport, 
Mass. By the Pastor, Horace Carter Hovey, D. D. Newburyport(P). 1907(F). 
8vo, pamphlet, pp. 27. 

This is an historical account of the Presbyterian denomination in its 
early struggles in Newbury, when it paid taxes to four different parishes and in 
other ways found existence difficult. A few notes of the more prominent 
members of the congregation are included. 

P Thomas Jones, Fort Neck, Queens County, Long Island, 1695, 
and His Descendants, The Floyd-Jones Family, with Connections 
from the Year 1066. Thomas Floyd-Jones. New York. 1906. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. 185. 

The compiler completely discredits the story that the first Thomas Jones 
was a pirate, and thereby lays a picturesque ghost. The descendants of Major 
Thomas Jones of Massapequa, and Freelove Townsend, his wife, have always 
been among the best-established families on Long Island, and have inter- 
married with the best-known people there. Notes on some of these families 
appear in the present volume. There is no index. 

A Supplement to the General Register of the Society of 
Colonial Wars, A. D. 1906. Published by Direction of the General Council. 
Boston. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 386. 

The object sought in the publication of this useful volume is to furnish 
the names of those who have joined the Society since the Register of 1902 was 
issued, together with accompanying genealogical data. Some errors have been 
allowed to stand, no doubt through an oversight; notably the case of Lieut. 
John Hollister, proven to have died in 1665, but who is quoted at. page 324 as a 
lieutenant in King Philip's War of ten years later. The book is most attractive 
in its crimson and white binding, and will prove, as its predecessor, of great 
assistance to the searcher. 

History of Saint Andrew's Society of the State of New 
York, 1756-1906. George Austin Morrison, Jr., Secretary to the Society. 
New York. Evening Post Job Printing Office. 1906. Quarto, cloth pp. 294. 

Clad in its sober and dignified cover, this history of a great charitable 
society presents a pleasing appearance. A succinct outline of the history of the 
society is followed by brief biographies, accompanied by excellent portraits 
bearing facsimile signatures of its presidents, beginning with Philip Livingston, 
President 1756-1757, and ending with W. Butler Duncan, 1905-1906. George 
Austin Morrison, Sr., father of the present Secretary, was President 1893-1895. 
The latter part of the work contains the charter, officers year by year, and 
members. The Seals of the Society are illustrated in gold and silver as a 
frontispiece, and there is also a representation of the badge. Mr. Morrison's 
style is clear and forcible, and his book represents long and thorough research, 
brought in this volume to a successful issue.

Vol. XXXVIII. NEW YORK, JULY, 1907. No. 3 


By Frederick C. Hicks. 

One year after the famous Mayflower landed her sturdy band 
of Pilgrims upon the bleak and forbidding shores of New Eng- 
land, a second ship, the Fortune, dropped anchor off the little set- 
tlement at Plymouth. 

Among this second body of Puritans seeking liberty of thought 
and action in the wilds of a New World was Robert Hicks, the 
founder of the family in America, descendant from a family of 
English gentry settled at Gloucester. The earliest known ances- 
tor was Sir Ellis Hicks, who was knighted by the Black Prince 
on the battle field of Poictiers in 1356, for bravery in capturing a 
set of colors from the French, in honor of which the fleur de lis 
was placed upon the family coat-of-arms. 

Margaret, the second wife of Robert, the pioneer, came from 
England on the ship Ann, which arrived in Plymouth during the 
latter part of June, 1622. 

About 1642, two of the sons, John and Stephen, left their 
father's home in Duxbury, Mass., where the family had resided 
a number of years, and came to Long Island. John Hicks, the 
second son of Robert, was one of the patentees to whom Gov. 
Kieft, in 1645, granted the township of Flushing, and who took 
an active part in the affairs of the settlement. His name and 
that of his only son, Thomas, who was appointed the first judge 
of Queens County, appears in connection with almost every pub- 
lic measure for many years, and from then to the present day 
the Hicks family has taken an active part in the history of the 

In the old Seventh Ward of New York City, which was then 
a Quaker neighborhood, Benjamin D. Hicks was born, Feb. 24, 
1836. It was here that his grandfather on his mother's side, 
Whitehead Hicks, a former Mayor of the City, once owned a 
farm. Isaac Hicks, his paternal grandfather, was also a well 
known man, being a prominent merchant and ship-owner of New 
York, and one of his ships first carried the newly adopted Amer- 
ican flag to the Black Sea, to commemorate which event the 
owner was presented with a large pitcher, by the Chamber of 
Commerce of the State. 


1 62 Benjamin D. Hicks. [July, 

Elias Hicks, the noted preacher, after whom the Hicksite 
branch of the Quakers is named, was a cousin of his, and through- 
out life Benjamin D. Hicks remained true to the faith and teach- 
ings of his ancestors, ever striving to heed that inner light which 
the Father has placed in the heart of every one; yet so broad in 
his religious views that creed and sect were to him but a name; 
believing that a life conscientiously lived was sufficient prepara- 
tion for the spirit in the world to come. For thirty years he 
attended the Westbury Meeting, and was one of the active 
workers in the Society. 

His mother, Elizabeth T. Hicks, was a distant relative of his 
father, being a descendant from Judge Thomas Hicks and Mary 
Washburn. His father died a young man, and throughout the 
life of his mother, his devotion to her, and solicitude for her wel- 
fare was most pronounced. 

Inheriting a competency from his father, he devoted his time 
to public affairs and philanthropic matters. He was conscien- 
tious never to waste time, and was always occupied with some- 
thing. His conviction was that duty should be considered first 
and always; when that was properly performed, pleasure could 
be enjoyed with added zest. Throughout his whole life he was 
one of the most dilligent and public spirited members of society. 

He made his home in the City until 1870, when he went to 
Westbury, L. I., and at once entered into the activities of the 
County. When eighteen years of age he entered political life 
and took part in the formation of the Republican Party when it 
meant far more than we can now realize to stand for the freedom 
of the slave. He was Secretary of the first Republican Club 
organized in New York City, and in those early days of the 
party's history, it was not unusual to have the meetings broken 
up by mobs, and the officers threatened with personal violence. 

In his early political life he was intimately associated with 
General Fremont, Secretary Seward, Governor Morgan and Gov- 
ernor King, and later with Senator Conkling, President Arthur, 
Governor Dix and Governor Cornell. He was a life long friend 
of George William Curtis and ardently supported him in his 
campaign for Civil Service Reform. For thirty years he was an 
active worker in the Republican ranks, but was never a candi- 
date for office, and would never accept the high political appoint- 
ments that were tendered him, yet he gave freely of his time and 
money for the promotion of the cause of the party and its highest 
and best principles. 

He was for ten years a member of the Republican State Com- 
mittee from the First Congressional District, and with John M. 
Clark, Isaac H. Cocks and Henry W. Eastman, was for many 
years one of the leaders of the Party in the town of North Hemp- 

He was an ardent American, loved his country and believed 
in it, and with the breaking out of the War of the Rebellion vol- 
unteered his services and was commissioned a lieutenant in the 
Navy; but, owing to the illness and anxiety of his mother who 
depended upon him absolutely, resigned before seeing active

service. This was a severe blow to him, as he had been a staunch 
supporter of the Free Soil movement and an enthusiastic advo- 
cate of all the principles of the Republican Party. 

Although not a college graduate, he was a close student and 
wide readar, surrounding himself with books, pictures and scien- 
tific instruments. While his general reading and research led 
him into all fields of knowledge, science and astronomy were his 
favorite subjects. 

While a large part of his early life was devoted to matters of 
a public nature, in later years he gave attention to business 
affairs, and at his death was connected with a number of financial 
institutions. He was one of the organizers of the Title Guaran- 
tee & Trust Co., and of the Bond & Mortgage Co., of New York, 
and a director in both. He was President of the Roslyn Savings 
Bank, Nassau County Bank and Bank of Hempstead Harbor. 

Being of an extremely sympathetic nature, and feeling keenly 
for the sufferings of animals under cruel treatment, he came into 
association with Henry Bergh, and the friendship thus formed 
remained through life. Associating themselves with other gen- 
tlemen who manifested a similar interest, the Society for the 
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was formed with Mr. Bergh as 
President and Mr. Hicks as Vice-President. He was an active 
worker in the Society until within a few years of his death, and 
travelled long distances to warn or punish those who were guilty 
of inhumane treatment of animals. 

When the Queens County Agricultural Society made its per- 
manent home in Mineola, Mr. Hicks became interested in it and 
devoted much time to the development of its grounds, and estab- 
lishing it upon a firm financial basis. 

Genealogical matters and the preservation of old records 
were always of interest to him, and he collected much valuable 
data, not only to his family, but of interest to the historian of the 
Island. • His monumental work is the Records of the Towns of 
Hempstead and North Hempstead, published in eight volumes. 
Mr. Hicks had long felt that the old records should be tran- 
scribed and published before time had so faded and obliterated 
the old writings as to make them unintelligible and valueless. 
For years he and his wife, whose constant help and devoted self- 
sacrifice made it possible for him to carry out the great work, 
labored upon the self-imposed task. Every line and often each 
word and letter of the old and often illegible records, with their 
misspelling and wretched writing which had to be deciphered 
with the aid of a magnifying glass, was carefully gone over and 
conscientiously transcribed. As the years pass, this great work 
will be more and more appreciated and will be of value to the 
historian of the future. 

Always interested in art, he was for fifty years a fellow of the 
National Academy of Design, and gave much assistance and 
encouragement to young and struggling artists. Through his 
genealogical research he became a member of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society and took an active interest 
in its work, besides being a member of a number of historical 

164 Southold, N. Y., Town Records. QJuly, 

and scientific societies. He was a member of the Society of Col- 
onial Wars and of the New York Chamber of Commerce. 

In the life of Benjamin D. Hicks the virtues and the sterling 
qualities of a line of sturdy ancestors were exemplified. Gen- 
erous to a fault, anxious to assist those who had his confidence, 
staunch in his devotion to his friends, his life will ever remain an 
inspiration for the future. 

" His was a simple, tender character placing always the wel- 
fare of others before that of himself. His thoughtfulness of the 
little courtesies, and his personal kindnesses endeared him to those 
he familiarly met. In all business matters he was punctilious in 
his attention to whatever of duty was assigned to him in the 
management of the numerous financial corporations in whose 
activities he took part. While he yielded readily to others in 
matters affecting his personal convenience, he stood as firm as a 
rock if he believed a question of principle was involved." 

Public spirit, loyalty to duty, faithfulness to friends, charity 
and sympathy for all, were the conspicuous characteristics of his 
life, and these coupled with a loving and kindly disposition, will 
make his name, for years, a cherished memory.

1. Jean Le Roy, a French Huguenot, was 
b. at Rouen, in Normandy, in 1548. He fled 
from France in 1572, shortly after the mas- 
sacre of St. Bartholomew, and came to Lon- 
don, where he married Mary Belier (or Blier), 
the daughter of James Belier, an elder of the 
French Church in London. Shortly after 
his arrival in London he anglicized his name 
of LeRoy to that of King. He d. in Lime 
Street, London, 11 Oct., 16 15, and was buried

Anne Roberts, dau. of Barne Roberts of Willesden, Middlesex. 
She was a sister of Sir William Roberts, Bart., and d. on 6 Feb., 
1 66 1. He lived at St. Albans, Herts, for many year, practicing 
his profession there, and took an active part in the Civil War, 
being a partisan of the Cromwellian party and serving on various 
county committees. 

Dr. King left a will in which, among other provisions the fol- 
lowing clause appears, viz.: "I doe give and bequeathe unto my 
grandsonne, John King, the second sonne of my late sonne, Sir 
John King, all my books that are Manuscripts and not printed 
and his Father's picture in Oyle, with two Epitaphs of his Father's 
Elogium, one in Latine and the same in English, in two figures 
of his Father's monument in the Temple Church, in two frames 
covered with glass and all the printed pictures covered with 
glass and the coat-of-arms of me and the Roberts in Oyle in 
my Dyneing Room (except that picture covered with glass 
which hath a parchment book in it conteyning a narrative of the 
said Sir John King's life and death) * * * which said last 
picture I give to my said granddaughter, Mary King, together 
with her father's picture at large in Oyle. * * * My Father 
(by name of John LeRoy), in English John King, departed out 
of this world the nth day of October, 1615, and on the 14th day 
of the said October, 1615, was buried in the Parish Church of St. 
Andrew Undershaft, London, living and Dying a parishoner of 
the said Parish. I, John King, his only child, desire that my body 
may be buried in the same grave or neare to it in the said Parish 

Dr. King d. 19 March, 1688. He appears to have taken a 
keen interest in the history of his family, and in 1677 compiled a 
genealogy of his ancestors and descendants entitled: "A brief 
and true Narrative of the Life and Death of Sir John King, Kt., 
late one of the Bench of the Inner Temple, together with the 
text and conclusion of Dr. Craddock's Sermon, preached at his 
burial, and also of two epitaphs made on him by two of his 
endeared friends since his death 'written' Anno Dom. 1677." It 
is to this Narrative that Dr. King refers in his will as a " parch- 
ment book " in the back of a picture of Sir John King, his son. 

After being lost for over one hundred and fifty years, this 
picture and the parchment manuscript back of the frame were 
discovered by Mr. George Henry Sawtell during a visit to the 
Jersey Island in 1853, at St. Heliers. It passed from Mary King, 
granddaughter of Dr. John King, to a Mr. Green, said to have 
been her grandson, whose daughter married Wigmore Whisken, 
Esq., and by that gentleman's daughter, the widow of the Rev. 
E. Mourant, of Guernsey, it was given to Mr. Francis Bertram, of 
St. Helier, Guernsey, in whose house it was seen by Mr. Sawtell. 
Mr. Sawtell caused the parchment to be published under the title 
of "A Memoir of the Life and Death of Sir John King, Knight, 
written by his Father in 1677," London, Fleet St., Bell & Daldy, 

1907.] The King Family in England. 2 I 5 

1855 (see Brit. Mus. No. 10826 — B 10.) It is to the interest and 
courtesy of Mr. Sawtell that this valuable record of the John 
King Family has been preserved for future generations. 

Dr. John King also made a strong effort during his lifetime 
to have the arms above set forth allowed and registered by the 
Herald's College, but for some reason the Heralds refused his 
request. He claimed that they were the LeRoy arms as borne by 
his ancestors in France. The fact of a chevron sable being placed 
on a shield azure, however, is in violation of the heraldic law of 
never tricking color on color, and the lion rampant was the dis- 
tinctive sign and property of such English King Families as had 
the right to bear coat armor. It looks as if Dr. King assumed 
the Lion as he did the name "King," and perhaps this was the 
reason the Heralds refused to recognize the arms. 
Dr. King had issue as follows: 
By first wife: 

John, b. Aug., 1633; d. Sept., 1633. 

Richard, b. Sept., 1634; slain by a lance in Hispaniola 
during Cromwell's expedition thither, 2 April, 1655.

b. 1628; and had eight children, of whom Richard 
d. 2 Oct., 1698. The great-grandson of said Richard 
sent a Memoir of the King Family to the "Gentle- 
man's Magazine," Vol. 52, page no, in 1781, in 
which it is stated that at that time the male line 
of the family was extinct.

Church, London, on 4 July, 1677. Dr. Craddock preached his 
funeral sermon. He left a will dated 27 June, 1677, proved 
12 July, 1677, in which he directs his burial in St. Bride's vault 
or in the Temple Church, and names his wife, Joyce, executrix. 
He devises his estate in trust to Edward Hales, of Goodweston, 
Kent, William Longueville, of the Inner Temple, London, and 
John Powell, and directs the payment of a bond owed to William 
Anderson and to Mr. Colwall, of the Inner Temple. He further 
devises to his wife a house in Salisbury Court, furniture, coach 
and horses, etc. He gives his daughter, Elizabeth, ^2,000 at 
twenty-one years, or on her marriage; to his son John ^2,000 at

These arms indicate that Isaac King was a descendant of Jean

however, that he was a son of that James King (Dr. John, Jean),

Rhoades, S. C. Lyman, banker, died at Camden, South Carolina, March 6, 
1907, aged 58 years. He was elected an Annual Member of this Society 
March 27, 1878, resigned Feb. 24, 1882; reelected March 10, 1893, resigned 
Oct. 12, 1897. Lyman Rhoades was born in Catskill, N. Y., and was the son of 
Lyman Rhoades, senior, member of the Pearl Street dry goods firm of Rhoades, 
Weed & Co., and a brother of John Harsen Rhoades, the banker, who died 
Dec. 6, 1906, and a grandson of Cornelius Harsen of Harsenville, a section of 
Bloomingdale, a colonel in the War of 1812, who was in charge of the islands 
in New York harbor. Mr. Rhoades was of Welsh extraction and was born 
Oct. 6, 1847, at Catskill, N. Y., where his parents were sojourning. He in- 
herited land at Harsenville, the center of which was 72d Street and Broadway, 
which has become a valuable and conspicuous portion of the metropolis. He 
married Ian. 15, 1880, Elizabeth, daughter of Stephen Payne Nash, the noted 

i9°7-] Obituary. 2 25 

lawyer; her mother being Catharine McLean, daughter of John McLean, of 
Salem, N. Y. He left him surviving Lyman, Jr., Assistant Secretary of the 
Equitable Trust Co., Katherine, and Stephen Payne Rhoades. Mr. Rhoades 
was President of the Mercantile Sate Deposit Co., and of the Mercantile 
Electric Co., and Trustee of the American Deposit and Loan Co., the Home for 
Old Men and Aged Couples, and the Society for the Relief of the Destitute 
Blind. He was a member of the Lawyers', Richmond Golf, Stockbridge (Mass.) 
Golf, and Barnard Clubs, the N. Y. Historical Society, the St. Nicholas Society, 
the Sons of the Revolution, the Society of Colonial Wars, and the Society of 
the War of 1812. He was deeply interested in historical and genealogical 
research, and was largely connected with the Bloomingdale district of this 
city through the Dikemans, Cozines, Hoppers and Harsens, all of whom owned 
large farms there in early times. As president, for twenty-five years, of the 
Safe Deposit Co., he presided over the affairs of the company with such con- 
summate ability as to make him the recognized head of the safe deposit 
business of this country. As a member in either business or charitable society 
Boards of Management, by his strict sense of justice, his genial and pleasant 
manner and good judgment, he endeared himself to all with whom he came in 

Taylor, Benjamin Van Campen, of New York and Duxbury, Mass., 
an Annual Member of this Society since Dec. 8, 1899, died Sept., 8, 1906.' 
Mr. Taylor was born in Jersey City, N. J., Nov. 15, 1846. He was the son of 
the Rev. William James Romeyn Taylor, D. D., and Katherine Rappalye 
Cowenhoven, daughter of Nicholas R. Cowenhoven and Anna Rappalye of 
New Brunswick, N. J., formerly of Long Island. 

His grandfather, Benjamin C. Taylor, D.D., was for more than fifty years 
pastor of the Reformed Dutch Church, Bergen, N. J., and author of " Annals 
of the Classis and Township of Bergen." One brother, Isaac E. Taylor, M. D., 
was for many years at the head of Bellevue Hospital. Another brother, Othniel' 
Taylor, M.D., was a leading physician of Camden, N.J. A sister, Martha, 
married into the family of "Citizen" Genet. Their father and mother were 
married in England. His ancestry along other lines is Dutch. Benjamin C. 
Taylor married Anna Romeyn, daughter of Rev. James Van Campen Romeyn, 
son of Rev. Thomas Romeyn. The Romeyn family have been prominent in 
the ministry and at the Bar. Mr. Taylor has three brothers who are still in 
the ministry, the fifth generation of ministers. Benjamin C. Taylor and his son, 
W. J. R. Taylor, served long terms as Trustees of Rutgers College. The 
Romeyns are connected with the Zabriskies of New York, and by marriage, 
with John A. C. Gray, formerly of 709 Fifth Avenue. 

Mr. Taylor's boyhood was passed in Jersey City, Schenectady and Phila- 
delphia, where his father served successively as pastor of Reformed (Dutch) 
Churches. In 1862 his father became Corresponding Secretary of the American 
Bible Society and the family moved to New Brunswick, New Jersey. Here the 
subject of this sketch attended the Grammer School, entered Rutgers College 
in 1863, and was graduated in 1867. After his graduation Mr. Taylor studied 
architecture with Renwick and Sands and John B. Snook in New York City, 
and subsequently practiced his profession in Newark, N. J., where his father 
was for twenty years pastor of the Clinton Avenue Reformed Church. Among 
the more prominent buildings erected from his designs were the Newark Free 
Library and Winants Hall, the large dormitory on the campus of his Alma Mater. 

Mr. Taylor was widely known and popular in Newark society, and was 
held in friendly esteem by men of all classes. He was a member of the Essex 
Club, Newark, and later of the Crescent Athletic Club, Brooklyn. 

On April 22, 1897, he married Miss Anna Buckham Wright, daughter of 
George Wellman Wright and Georgianna Buckham of Duxbury, Mass. The 
wedding took place in Boston. During the later years of his life Mr. Taylor 
was not in good health, and with his wife, spent much time abroad. 

Van Campen Taylor was a man of the artistic temperament, resisting in 
in his work and in his point of view every encroachment of commercialism. 
Quick in his discernment of aesthetic possibilities, he nevertheless planned in 
a large way for domestic comfort and business convenience. He was obser-

vant, critical, ready to question accepted ways of doing things, and both 
foresaw and anticipated in his practice important changes in method and in 

He was a gentleman in every instinct, frankly aristocratic in sentiment, 
but always persona grata among the roughest men with whom his profession 
brought him into contact — and this without any lapse on his part into familiarity. 
His manner was never quite that of unreserved familiarity with any one, 
though in a fine way free and friendly. 

In his own home and among his relatives and friends Mr. Taylor was 
known as a man who lived the heart-life in all sincerity. There was a zest and 
enthusiasm in his devotion to the happiness of others which was entirely self- 
forgetful. He had a strong family feeling, and maintained perhaps more 
widely than any other member of the affiliated families his interest in and his 
acquaintance with his kindred. 

Wilcox, David, lawyer, a member of this Society since 1899, died at sea 
April 24, 1907. He was born in Flatbush, L. I., in 1850, and was the son of 
Albert O. and Ann Elizabeth Wilcox. He graduated from Yale in 1872 and 
was valedictorian of his class. He studied law at Columbia apd began the 
practice of law in 1874. He was for several years the legal advisor of the 
Delaware & Hudson R. R. and Canal Co., and afterwards its president. 

His legal acumen made him the leader of the hard coal road presidents in 
all their struggles with the striking anthracite coal miners, and he was tacitly 
understood to be the mouthpiece of all the anthracite roads. His appeal to 
the President in 1902 that the coal strike was a conspiracy to hamper interstate 
commerce, brought to the front for the first time the application of the Sherman 
Anti-Trust Law to jthe situation, and his letter to John Mitchell setting forth the 
position of the employers was so clear and forceful that the labor men backed 
down for lack of public support. 

Mr. Wilcox was also a director of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific 
R. R., and a member of many clubs, including the Metropolitan, University, 
Century, Union League, New York Yacht and Tuxedo. His estate was left to 
his four nieces, Mary A. Duer, Elizabeth Stewart Hamilton, Elise S. Kinkead, 
and Edith B. H. Kinkead. W. G. Wilcox, a cousin is professor in Cornell 

Kissam, Benjamin Adrian, died suddenly in Elizabeth, N. J., near his 
late home 66 Cherry Street, on Monday afternoon, June 3, 1907. He was born 
at 1 1 Walker Street, New York City, Feb. 26, 1836, and was the son of the late 
Dr. James Brooks Kissam and the late Mary Margaret Butler of New York City. 

Mr. Kissam was a descendant of the old New York City family of Kissam, 
the American progenitor of which was John Kissam, Sr., a Puritan, whose 
family lived at Flushing, L. I., in 1645. Mr. Kissam's entire life with the 
exception of the last few years, was spent fti New York City, where he was 
engaged in business. He was identified with the Protestant Episcopal Church 
and took an active part in the affairs of some of its philanthropic and religious 
activities. He was a man who never courted publicity, but having clear views 
of great breadth on all subjects and an unusual executive ability, he was looked 
up to and much called upon for advice and service by his intimates and 
associates. Of great culture, courteus address, polished manner and genial 
personality, he moved quietly through life, esteemed by his friends, beloved 
by his family, leaving the memory of an upright life and a helpful life, as his 
ancestors had done before him. 

Mr. Kissam was married Feb. 11, 1857, to Sara A. Snyder, daughter of the 
late Col. Henry D. H. Snyder and the late Ann Beers at her father's home in 
Woodland, Ulster Co., N. Y. Col. Snyder was a descendant of the Palatinate 
Wilhelm Schneider of East Camp, N. Y., 1710. Mr. Kissam's wife died at 
Elizabeth, N. J., Sept. 14, 1906. Six children survive, viz.: Ella K. Kitching, 
Elizabeth, N. J.; Albert Ward Kissam, East Orange, N. J.; Henry Snyder 
Kissam, New York City; Delia K. Johnson, Cynwyd, Pa.; James Benjamin 
Kissam, New York City; and Charlotte K. Ward, London, England.

Albany Chronicles. A History of the City Arranged Chronologically 
From the Earliest Settlement to the Present Time. Compiled by Cuyler 
Reynolds. Albany. J. B. Lyon Company, Printers. 1906. 8vo, half Morocco, 
pp. xxiv+815. Profusely Illustrated. 

This work, in its thoroughness, care for detail and interesting arrangement, 
is the most valuable recent contribution to the general history of Albany. Mr. 
Reynolds has arranged his facts chronologically under each Mayor's admini- 
stration, prefacing each section with a brief tabular biography of the Mayor 
for that period, which in many cases is accompanied by a portrait of His 
Honor. The compiler has not confined himself to a mere outline of events, 
but has given many illuminative details relating to the persons and places 
mentioned, and in the case of important incidents has made his account both 
full and interesting. The book is very completely illustrated with many 
historical pictures, and reproductions of the Robert C. Pruyn collection of 
Mayors of Albany. No one interested in Albany or early New York State 
history can afford to do without this valuable work. 

The History of the Brigham Family. A Record of Several 
Thousand Descendants of Thomas Brigham, the Emigrant, 1603-1653. W. I. 
Tyler Brigham. Collated and edited by Emma E. Brigham. William E. 
Brigham, Associate Editor. New York. The Grafton Press. 1907. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 636. Price, $10.00. 

The English origin of Thomas Brigham has yet to be discovered, but the 
result of Mr. W. I. T. Brigham's researches has been printed with this genealogy 
as a guide for future effort. The work is divided into six sections, namely: 
History, Genealogy, Appendix, Addenda, Owner's Lineage and Index. It 
would have been quite as useful and perhaps better, from a searcher's stand- 
point, to have placed the history with the appendix in the second part of the 
book, beginning the volume with the very full and valuable data concerning 
the Emigrant. In grouping the children of Brigham daughters, the compiler 
has been careful to head the list with the family name, and in the case of son's 
children to specify by which wife they were borne. Daughters' grandchildren 
are printed in italics. The volume is exceedingly attractive in its make-up. 
Good judgment has been shown in the arrangement and printing of the records, 
and in many cases attention is called to Colonial Wars service. The appendix 
contains, with other interesting matter, the military records of the Brigham 
family. A separate sheet for additions and corrections to be sent to the editor 
is enclosed with the volume, and there are 67 pages of indexes and many 
excellent illustrations. 

2 28 Book Notices. [July, 

A Guide to Massachusetts Local History. Being a bibliographic 
index to the literature of the towns, cities and counties of the State, including 
books, pamphlets, articles in periodicals and collected works, books in prepar- 
ation, historical manuscripts, newspaper clippings, etc. Compiled by Charles 
A. Flagg, Library of Congress, Washington, D. C. Salem. The Salem Press 
Company. 1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. ix-f-256. Price, $6.00. 

The sub-title amply describes the plan and scope of this invaluable work, 
but only the practical searcher can realize what a boon the book is. The work 
is arranged by counties, under which the towns are placed in alphabetical 
order. Each county is preceded by a township map, and a brief topographical 
history, under which are placed the general works relating to its history. Each 
town also has a short account of its formation and setting off, and a practical 
index to the towns and counties adds further to one's comfort and convenience. 
One hates to make any criticism of a work so nearly perfect, but in a second 
edition, a better label on the back of the book will add not only to its usefulness, 
but also to its appearance. Excellent taste has been shown in the selection 
and printing of material, and one feels deeply grateful to Mr. Flagg for his 
very helpful production. 

The St. John Genealogy. Descendants of Matthias St. John of Dor-

and Norwalk, Conn., 1650. Orline St. John Alexander. New York. The 
Grafton Press. 1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. xv-f-624. Price, $9.00. 

This is one of the representative families of Norwalk, which has been 
active in all her history. In the genealogy before us, the daughters are not 
placed as heads of families, their marriages and children being given under 
their father's section. This arrangement seems a most sensible one, in that it 
preserves the dominant place of the family name. Index references are to 
personal number. In accordance with the best present usage, authorities for 
important statements are freely given, especially in the earlier generations. 
Paper and makeup are good, and as with all genealogical publications of the 
Grafton Press, a blank is bound in for the owner's lineage. In its general 
appearance and arrangement it is one of the best genealogical books of the

Jones (1665-1726) and Allied Families. John H. Jones. New York. Tobias A. 
Wright. 1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. 435. 

This volume opens with a most thorough and interesting account of Major 
Thomas Jones, the ancestor, setting forth the contemporaneous documents 
which give color to the belief that he was a pirate, as well as others to show 
that he was really a privateer. He was an important man in his day, and his 
descendants have always been prominent on Long Island. A perusal of the 
names of allied families, of whom an excellent account is given here, will show 
the race to have been connected with most of the old Long Island families. 
Among the best known names are Willett, Washburne, Van Wyck, Wood, 
Weekes, Underbill, Remsen, "Tangier" Smith, Kissam, Cornell, Valentine, 
Thorne, Lawrence, Youngs, Gardiner, Woodhull, Hallett, Skidmore, and others 
too numerous to mention. There is a particularly full account of the Mott 
family. The book is well printed and indexed; has a number of excellent

pp. vi+308. 

This is the family of which the late General James Mitchell Varnum was 
so distinguished a member. No attempt is made to show a British pedigree, 
although the family tradition that they originated in " Drawcutt (supposed to be 
in Wales)" is cited. The book begins with the accurate and interesting history 
of the family, written by Squire Parker Varcum in 1818 when he was 71 years

of age. Indeed the whole compilation is more of a family history than a 
genealogy. The biographical matter is by different hands, and is illustrated 
by silhouette and still-life pictures. Some of the more important members of 
the family were Hon. Joseph Bradley Varnum, U. S. Senator and speaker of 
Congress, Joseph Bradley Varnum, merchant and railroad financier, Major- 
General James Mitchell Varnum, member Continental Congress, Judge Sup- 
reme Court N. W. Territory, and others, including General James Mitchell 
Varnum, a member of this Society, who filled many important offices, besides 
being Vice-President of the Rhode Island Society of the Cincinnati, Governor

Early Days in Detroit. General Friend Palmer. Detroit. Published 
by Hunt & June. 1906. 8vo, cloth, pp. 1032. Price. $5.00. 

In May, 1827, General Palmer arrived in Detroit with his mother and two 
sisters. He died there on October 9th. igo6. It will therefore be seen that 
his reminiscences, covering a period of so many years, will be of the greatest 
local value. His accounts of Detroit merchants of long ago, of the old hotels, 
express days, belles and beaux of by-gone days, the first theatres in Detroit, 
and other old-time matters, well repay perusal. A number of personal and 
family sketches will be found very helpful to the genealogist. The book is 
well printed, bound and indexed, and will be found indispensable to the 
student of Michigan history. 

Suffolk Manorial Families, Vol. II, Part 9. Being the County 
Visitations and Other Pedigrees. Joseph James Muskett. Privately Printed. 
Exeter. William Pollard & Co., Ltd. 1907. Folio, pamphlet, pp. 321-360.

This number deals with Beaumont of Bildeston, Stubbing of Naughton,

bearings, pedigrees and wills, all in the usual admirable manner of this 

The Church at Harsenville, Commonly Known as Bloomingdale 
Reformed Church. Hopper Striker Mott. Price, $10.00. 

This work, now in preparation, is divided into chapters with these titles, 
viz.: I, Bloomingdale; II, Bloomingdale Militant; III, Harsenville; IV, The 
First Consistory; V, The Church at Harsenville; VI, Among Old-Time 
Communicants; VII, Reminiscences. An appendix and vital Records, which 
concern many well-known families, will end the work, which will be profusely 
illustrated with portraits, old homesteads and maps locating the general 
topographical features. The broadest kind of an historical and genealogical 
background has been taken. Some well-known names treated herein are: 
Apthorp, Broome, Cozine, Dana, deLancey, Emmons, Gracie, Hoffman, Hopper, 
Horn, Jumel, Leggett, Mandeville, Mott, Oakley, Rhinelander, Striker and 
Varian. The work will be ready in the Fall. 

Genealogy of the Stimpson Family of Charlestown, Mass., and 
Allied Lines. Charles Collyer Whittier. Boston. David Clapp & Son. 
1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. 206. 

The name Stimpson is a corruption of Steavenson or Stevenson, Andrew, 
the progenitor, having used both the latter spellings. The family remained at 
Charlestown for several generations, where they were respected citizens. 
This genealogy carries the daughters' lines through several generations, and, 
where it does not make the book too bulky, this is a very desirable thing to do, 
for, though the name is lost, the blood remains, and daughters' children have 
the same descent as those of sons. The book is fully illustrated with portraits, 
and there are 20 pages of index. 

First Record Book of the Society of the Daughters of Holland

Price, $3.00. 


23O Book Notices. [July, 

So far as can be ascertained, this is the first year-book of a patriotic society 
in which exclusively Dutch pedigrees are set forth. The requirements of this 
Society being that the propositus must have been a Hollander, born in Holland, 
who was at least a freeholder in America before 1700, not only limits the 
membership, but also prevents mention of many Dutch families, afterwards 
prominent, whose ancestor came too late, or died too soon after arrival to make 
his mark in the community. In spite of these difficulties, some 260 ancestors 
are represented, many of them with distinguished service. The Society, 
organized and incorporated in 1895, has over one hundred members and is 
growing. The present book reflects the greatest credit upon its compilers. 
It is printed on good paper, is attractively bound in buff and blue, with gold 
lettering, and has indices to members and ancestors. 

Balch Genealogica. Thomas Willing Balch. Philadelphia. Allen, 
Lane and Scott. 1007. Quarto, cloth, pp. x+410. 

It has not been the compiler's aim, in this handsome volume, to write a 
complete genealogy, but to publish all the information at present available of 
the family in England, and of the descendants of John Balch of Maryland. 
The first 85 pages are therefore devoted to the English records, the next 8 to 
John Balch of Massachusetts, and the remainder of the book to John Balch of 
Maryland, and his descendants. The book is really a collection of family 
papers, letters, sermons, and other biographical data, and is most beautifully 
illustrated. The result of Mr. Balch's labors is a very fine and dignified work. 

Martha's Vineyard. A History of the Island and Its People; Com- 
prising the annals of Edgartown, Tisbury, Chilmark, Cottage City, Bay Head, 
West Tisbury and Gosnold, constituting the county of Dukes County, Massa- 
chusetts. Charles Edward Banks, Surgeon, U. S. Marine Hospital Service. 
Boston. Printed for the author by George H. Dean. 1907. 2 vols. 

This long-expected work is about to appear, and will be eagerly welcomed 
by a large number of persons, as it is the first history of Dukes County or the 
six towns embraced within it. Dr. Banks has been collecting material at 
home and abroad for the last fifteen years, and a great number of hitherto 
unknown facts will appear in the publication. While the historical part of the 
book will be most thorough, there will be an extensive genealogical part. A 
number of New York families, including the Ogdens, are descended from 
Island families. Some of the prominent names treated genealogically are, 
Adams, Allen, Bassett, Cathcart, Coffin, Dunham, Lambert, Smith, Waldron 
and Worth, Codman and Tabor. The price of the volumes at present is $6.00. 
Later it will be raised to $10.00. 

Youngs Family. A History and Genealogy. Selah Youngs, Jr., N. Y. 
Produce Exchange. New York. Privately Printed. 1907. Quarto, half- 
morocco, pp. 377. Price, $10.00. 

The eastern end of Long Island has given us much in the way of genealogy 
and history, but no volume concerning this locality has yet been issued to 
compare in dignity and value with this one. The Youngs family has the 
advantage of knowing with certainty one English ancestor back of the 
emigrant, and even if proof cannot at present go back of Rev. Christopher 
Yonges, Vicar of Reydon, he makes a most desirable founder of the race. A 
full account of him, with a facsimile of his signature, will be found in the book. 
Rev. John Yonges was one of the emigrants, the first minister of the town of 
Southold, and the ruling influence there. His son, Col. John Youngs, was one 
of the most prominent and distinguished of early Long Island men, having 
served as Colonel, Assistant in Connecticut, Boundary Commissioner, High 
Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire, and, for a number of years, member 
of the Governor's Council of New York. Captain Joseph Youngs, son of Rev. 
Christopher, also emigrated to Southold, and the Oyster Bay Youngs family 
comes from him. The book has been printed with great discrimination and 
excellent taste. Mr. Youngs endeavored not so much to introduce new ideas 
in printing, as to learn the best modern methods, and to this detail work he 
gave long and careful thought. It is this which has made the printed work so 
valuable. Some of the prominent Long Island names mentioned are, Albert-

Joutel's Journal ok La Salle's Last Voyage, 1684-7. New Edition 
with Historical and Biographical Introduction, Annotations and Index, by 
Henry Reed Stiles, A.M., M.D., to which is Added a Bibliography of the 
Discovery of the Mississippi, by Appleton C. Griffin, of the Library of Congress. 
Albany. Joseph McDonough. 1906. 8vo, Boards, pp. 258. 

La Salle's voyages read like some old romance, full of color and courage 
and adventure- and this new edition, with its valuable footnotes, its very useful 
historical introduction, outlining all La Salle's voyages, and its Bibliography, 
maybe regarded as the final word on this interesting subject. Henri Joutel, 
who accompanied the final expedition, and who wrote this present Journal, has 
a quaint and picturesque style and will repay reading. Print and paper are 
good, and so is the index; and a fine heliotype reproduction of Gudebrod s 
statue of La Salle, and a reproduction in facsimile of Joutel's map, originally 
published in the Paris edition of 1713, illustrate the work. 

The Emmons Family Genealogy. A Record of the Emigrant Thomas 
Emmons of Newport, Rhode Island, with Many of His Descendants, from 
1639 to 1905. Edward Neville Emmons. Syracuse. Lyman Bros., Printers. 
1905. 6vo, cloth, pp. x+222+lv. 

The introduction to this genealogy treats of various Emmons emigrants, 
preceded by an explanation of the arrangement of the book. The compiler 
indulges in no speculations as to the English origin of the ancestor, who hrst 
sat down in Newport, but soon removed to Boston, where he remained. I he 
descendants of daughters are carried out in regular numerical order for about 
two generations. One unusual feature of the arrangement is the statement, 
after each head of a family of his relationship to the family just above him on 
the page. The index gives generation and personal numbers of an individual, 
and other identifying marks are used. 

A Genealogical Record of One Branch of the Heath, Clark 
and Cone Families. Dewitt Stilwell. Syracuse. E. M. Grover, Printer. 
1905. 8vo, cloth, pp. 40. 

The compiler has herein set forth the descendants in brief of three of his 
ancestors, William Heath of Roxbury, Mass., in 1632, John Clark whose 
residence is not given, and Daniel Cone, of Haddam, Conn., about 1662. lhe 
book is well printed and indexed. 

Peter Chabot and His Descendants. Frank H. Titus, M.S., M.D. 
Portsmouth, Ohio. 1906. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 24. 

Peter Chabot was born in France in 1767, and was one of the first settlers 
of Scioto County, Ohio. An interesting account of him will be found in the 
second part of the pamphlet, as well as biographical notes of others of his 
family. The first part of the little brochure is strictly genealogical. In this 
system of notation, the first figure of the enumeration of each descendant gives 
the number of the generation after the founder of the line; the second number 
locates the individual in that generation. 

A History of the Hinmans. Containing also an Abbreviated Record 
of the Kindred Families, Showing their Relationship to Hinmans Dr. A. V. 
Hinman. Youngstown. The Vindicator Press. 1907. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 75. 

These are descendants of Sergt. Edward Hinman, "the first and only 
emigrant of the name found in America," but the compiler has developed only 
his own line, although he has given some vital statistics concerning collatera 
relatives. Some of the kindred families noted are, Shaw. Tilley, Howland 
Crocker, Swift, Gibbs, Skinner, Waring, Winchell, Richards, Oviatt and

The Barnes Family of Easthampton, Long Island. Richard Wyn- 
koop. New York. Tobias A. Wright. 1906. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 25. 

This is a reprint from the Record for 1906, is fully referenced by foot- 
notes, and well indexed. 

Old Dorchester Burying Ground. A Paper Read Before the Dor- 
chester Historical Society, Nov. 22, 1901, by John A. Fowle. Second Edition. 
Dorchester. Published by the Society. 1907. 12D, pamphlet, pp. 22, illustrated. 

In this very interesting paper will be found, in small compass, all that one 
would most like to know about the old Dorchester burying ground, well told, 
and enlivened with illustrations. 

The White Family. H. K. White. Detroit. Privately printed. 1906. 
Quarto, pamphlet, pp. 35. 

These are the Whites of Lynn, Mass., and Southampton and Huntington, 
Long Island, and the pamphlet exhibits the records of descendants without 
biographical matter. Abstracts from Stamford deeds, and other miscellaneous 
data occupy the prefaces of which there are two, and the pamphlet will make 
an excellent foundation for some future family historian.

Pedigree Charts. 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society 
226 West 58th Street, New York. 

This Society has for sale official forms of genealogical charts called 
" Register of Pedigrees." These registers are of two varieties, called " single " 
and "double" charts. They are each paper covered books of 11 x 16 inches in 
size, properly ruled and printed for the insertion of names of ancestors in succes- 
sive generations. The single charts consists of 17 pages, and when filled in will 
give all of the ancestors in all ramifications for 9 generations, arranged so that the 
family name of each of the 16 great-great-grandparents occupies a page. Family 
names appear on the marginal index which is formed by the indentation of each 
leaf. The back of each leaf is arranged for special memoranda concerning the 
persons named on the page facing it. 

The double charts are practically two single charts combined. The object 
being to devote the first half of the chart to the registration of the complete pedi- 
gree of the male line, the second half for a like registration of the female line, and 
the double chart therefore provides for the registration of 10 generations in both 
male and female lines. 

The price of these charts to members of this Society is as follows: 

Single Charts, - = = $ .75 

Double " - - - 1.50 

To those who are not members of the Society: 

Single Charts, - - • $1.00 

Double " - $2.00 

Members of the Society, or others who purchase these Charts and fill them 
in as fully as possible and present them to the Librarian of the Society for filing in 
the Society's Library, will receive a new one in exchange therefor without addition- 
al cost. These charts may be purchased by application to the Librarian. 

It is the desire of the Trustees that the members will supply themselves 
with these registers, fill them out as far as possible and file them with the Society. 
When received these will be bound in volumes, fully indexed, and will thus form 
a record of inestimable value to the Society. 

Those who have in their possession full information as to their individual 
ancestry are especially urged to obtain these Charts, fill them in and file them 
with the Society, as information of this nature is very frequently lost to posterity 
owing to negligence on the part of those possessing it to make record thereof, in 
special depositories provided for that purpose.

Vol. XXXVIII. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1907. No. 4. 


By Beverly Chew, LH.D. 

The ancestors of Bowen Whiting Pierson were probably of 
Yorkshire extraction, where the family can be traced back to 
1400 and earlier. There are notices of the arrival at Boston of 
several of the name in 1637 to 1643. 

The Rev. Abraham Pierson, who is presumed to have been 
the son of Abraham Pierson of Thornton, was baptized at 
Bradford in St. Peter's Church in 1613, and came to Massa- 
chusetts in 1639. Later he was in Lynn with his near relative, 
Henry Pierson, who was there married to Mary Cooper. In the 
year 1640 a colony of forty families from Lynn, Mass., set out to 
found a town of their own, and effected a settlement on the 
Eastern end of Long- Island at what is still called Southampton. 
Among this number were Henry Pierson and his wife, Mary 
Cooper, and the Rev. Abraham Pierson, the pastor of the little 
band. Abraham remained at Southampton until 1647, when he 
crossed Long Island Sound to the Connecticut shore and joined 
the New Haven colony at Branford. His son, also the Rev. 
Abraham, who was born in Southampton in 1645, was the first 
President of Yale College. Henry Pierson remained at Southamp- 
ton and was the father of a large family. He appears to have been 
a man of affairs in his community. He was Town Clerk from 
1653 to 1669, faithfully performing his duty, and to him the town 
is indebted for the knowledge of the early history and such 
glimpses of the men of the period as these quaint records show. 

He records very little about himself, though it is stated that: 

" Henry Pierson had four acres of land granted unto him upon 
the great plain lying headways toward Mr. Smith's, and sideways 
towards Mr. Wells, his lot, and down to the swamp." 

It likewise appears that Henry was not always of a meek and 
forgiving spirit such as became one who fled to the wilderness to 
enjoy freedom from civil and religious oppression: 

"On Oct. 6, 1646, Henry Pierson was censured by the Court 
of Magistrates for misscarriage in threatening that if any man 
should strike his dog, he would knock him down, and to pay for 
the said miscarriage ten shillings, and to be of good behaviour." 

Either the fine or the threat proved effective, as we hear no 
more of this dog case. 


242 Boiven Whiting Pierson. [Oct., 

Henry Pierson died in 1680 or 1681, and from his sixth son, 
Theodore, born before 1659, the line continues, as follows: 
Job Pierson, b. 1697; d. 1788. 
Lemuel Pierson, b. 1723. 
Samuel Pierson, b. 1753; d. 1838. 

Here were four generations of sturdy farmers who brought 
up their families in the plain and simple manner of those days, 
and no doubt in close conformity with habits of their New 
England neighbors with whom they were in full accord by 
religious traditions. 

Job Pierson, son of Samuel, was born Sept. 23, 1791; was 
fitted for college under the Rev. Samuel Wool worth, the Bridge 
Hampton minister, and entered Williams College, from which he 
was graduated in 181 1. He studied law, and upon his admission 
to the bar began practice with Judge Herman Knickerbocker of 
Schaghticoke, N. Y., with whom later he entered into partner- 
ship. He occupied the important position of District Attorney of 
Rensselaer County, Member of Congress for two terms, and 
Surrogate. He removed to Troy about 1835, and continued to 
reside there until his death, April 9, i860. With him came the 
break from the old Long Island farm, although he always prided 
himself as being a " Landed Proprietor," and made frequent 
visits to the Long Island Farm, situated in the old settlement of 
Sagaponack, which, so far as is known, has been the property of 
the family since 1640. It is located on Sagg Pond, about- one-half 
mile from the ocean, and one and one-half miles from Bridge 
Hampton village. The house on this farm was built about 150 
years ago, and no doubt replaced an earlier one, possibly built 
of logs. 

Job Pierson married Sept. 24, 1815, Clarissa Taintor Bulkley 
of Williamstown, Mass. Clarissa Bulkley was descended from 
the best New England stock. The celebrated Peter Bulkley, 
first minister of Concord, Mass., graduate of St. John's College, 
Cambridge, noted for his learning, benevolence and faithfulness 
in the ministry, as well as for his large family of fifteen children, 
was the first of the race in America. He was followed by a 
distinguished line of ministers, educators, farmers and merchants, 
and his descendants so intermarried with other New England 
families that there are few of New England birth who cannot 
trace back to some Bulkley ancestor. 

Job Pierson, D.D., son of Job and Clarissa Taintor Bulkley, 
was born at Schaghticoke, N. Y., Feb. 3, 1824; was graduated 
from Williams College in 1842, and from Auburn Theological 
Seminary in 1847. He occupied the pulpit of the Presbyterian 
Churches at Pittsford, N. Y., Catskill, N. Y., Victor, N. Y., Kala- 
mazoo, Mich., and Ionia, Mich. He retired from active clerical 
work July 1, 1878, and for a number of years was engaged in 
literary work, chiefly on the New Oxford English Dictionary, for 
which he furnished 47,000 words. He was Librarian of Alma 
College, Michigan, for three years, and retired to his home in 
Stanton, Mich., where he died Feb. 3, 1896. Dr. Pierson married 
Feb. 7, 1849, Rachel Williams Smith, born Dec. 11, 1820. Her 

1907O Bowen Whiting Pier son. 24^ 

parents were natives of Gloucester, Mass. Bowen Whiting 
Pierson was the fourth child and third son of this union. He was 
born Jan. 5, 1858, at Victor, Ontario Co., New York, where his 
father was the pastor of the Presbyterian Church. When he was 
five years old, in 1863, he was taken by his parents to Kalamazoo, 
Mich., and there his early boyhood was passed and his education 
begun. From 1869 to 1872 he made his home with an uncle re- 
siding at Geneva, N. Y., attending school during that period, 
returning home to Ionia, Mich., to which place his parents had in 
the meantime removed. He resided there for a few years, be- 
ginning his business career in a drug store. The Rev. Dr. 
Pierson was a scholarly man, a close student of literature and 
the possessor of a large and valuable library. The association 
with his father at this time and several years later, when after a 
period of four years in and about New York he returned to the 
west, was of the greatest importance to young Pierson. His 
father's sound learning together with the constant use of his 
library served to develop and strengthen in him that love of 
literature that was so prominent among his characteristics in 
later life. Indeed it can be safely said that this association with 
his father, and the benefit of his sound advice in directing his 
studies, was quite as valuable to him as a collegiate course 
could have been. In December, 1881, he finally left the west and 
began his connection with the firm of H. R. Worthington, manu- 
facturers of hydraulic machinery, and remained with that house 
about nineteen years, leaving them on Nov. 30, 1900, and shortly 
after assisted in founding the Alberger Condenser Co., of which 
he was elected Secretary and Treasurer, and held both positions 
until his death. 

Pierson was a man of a pleasant and social nature, naturally 
optimistic in temperament he always looked on the hopeful side 
of things, at the same time his strong will and tenacity of pur- 
pose enabled him to contend against adverse conditions when 
they arose and to carry his plans to a successful conclusion. He 
had the collector's temperament from boyhood, first minerals 
and stamps being the object of his interest, next coins, and finally 
books. His devotion to literature was always a pronounced char- 
acteristic, and his love of books and bibliography lead him to 
become one of the early members of the Grolier Club when it 
was founded in 1884. In this association he found many congenial 
spirits and entered into the Club work with intelligent zeal. He 
was a contributor of great value to the Club's "Collations and 
Notes" published in 1894. In the same year he was elected a 
member of the Council, and was several times re-elected, retiring 
in 1905. During his service in the Council he was a member of 
several important Committees and was particularly active as a 
member of the Library Committee. 

He was elected an Annual Member of the New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Society, Nov. 9, 1894. Genealogical 
research had always been an attractive subject to him, therefore 
he was from the first an interested member. He was elected 
Treasurer in April, 1897, and held that important office to 

244 Frank Sherman Benson. [Oct., 

January, 1901, when he resigned. His excellent business training 
and careful methods of administration made him an efficient and 
useful officer. He served twice on the Board of Trustees, from 
January, 1898, to January, 1904, when he resigned. Re-elected 
January, 1905, he served until his death. In 1904 he became a 
member of the Century Association and thoroughly enjoyed his 
connection with this well-known literary and artistic body. He 
was also a member of the City Club, and was scrupulous in the 
performance of every civic duty. He was a parishioner of the 
Church of St. Mary the Virgin and for more than ten years a 
member of the Board of Trustees. His funeral was held in this 
Church on July 6. 

Pierson was married Oct. 12, 1887, to Nannie Meech, daughter 
of Stephen Meech of Norwich, Conn., and to them a daughter, 
Clarissa, was born June 8, 1890. He was most fortunate in his 
home life, and in all his domestic relations was exhibited that 
perfect harmony that is the ideal of the married state. 

With the exception of the year beginning October, 1886, when 
he experienced serious lung trouble, from which he recovered, 
Pierson enjoyed good health and was a diligent and faithful 
worker in business. In the Autumn of 1906, however, he ap- 
peared far from well, was easily fatigued, and felt obliged to give 
up many social and other engagements. Towards Spring, on his 
physician's advice, he went away for a change for about a month 
and returned seemingly improved. His Summer plans took him 
to Bridge Hampton, near the old " Long Island Farm " where he 
loved to be, and had hoped in time to establish his permanent 
Summer home. Here the fatal blow came June 30, and without 
recovering consciousness he died on the morning of July 4. 

Cut off in the prime of life when all his prospects for the 
future were most promising, his death is mourned by a large 
number of friends who were sincerely attached to him and in 
whose lives there will always remain the memory of his loyal

Benson, Frank Sherman, one of the most widely known 
citizens of Brooklyn, and distinguished for his knowledge of 
numismatics, died suddenly of apoplexy, February 28, 1907, at 
his residence, 214 Columbia Heights, aged fifty-two years. His 
death came as a great shock to his family and friends inasmuch 
as he was in the prime of life, and until his last illness, apparently 
in robust health. 

He was born September 15, 1854, in Brooklyn, N. Y., and 
belonged to the New England Bensons who were connected by 
marriage with the well-known families of Bacon, Buck, Cleve- 
land, Fessenden and Sewall, all of New England. His father, 
Arthur W. Benson, was a merchant of Brooklyn who for many 

fn^X c ^tao*.a^^^ 

1907.] Frank Sherman Benson. 245 

years was president of the Brooklyn Gas Light Company and a 
director of the Brooklyn Bridge; son of John Benson, of Boston, 
by his wife Sarah Buck, daughter of Daniel Buck, of Bucksport, 
Me., and Mary Sewall, daughter of Dummer Sewall, of Bath, Me., 
a colonel in the war of the American Revolution, and a great- 
grandson of Henry Sewall, of Newbury, Mass., who was the 
father of Judge Samuel Sewall, of Boston, the famous Chief 
Justice of Massachusetts. His mother, Jane A. Marks, was the 
daughter of Dennis Marks, of St. Louis, Mo., by his wife Anna 
Maria Bacon, daughter of Joseph Bacon — a descendant of 
Nathaniel Bacon of Middletown, Ct., 1653 — and Abigail Cleve- 
land, daughter of Ezra Cleveland, of Burlington, Ct., who was 
the great-grandson of Captain Samuel Cleveland, of Chelmsford, 
Mass., the son of Moses Cleveland, of Woburn, Mass., ancestor 
of the Clevelands in this country. 

Mr. Benson well represented the better portion of our leisure 
class, who, instead of devoting themselves to pleasure, interest 
themselves in serious affairs, and render their lives useful to 
their fellow citizens. He graduated from Yale University in the 
class of 1876, and from the Columbia College Law School in 1879, 
and was admitted to the bar but never practiced his profession, 
devoting himself to study, and the many scientific, benevolent 
and patriotic organizations of which he became a member. He 
specially interested himself in numismatics and spent several 
years in the study of ancient Greek coins, of which he possessed 
one of the most valuable private collections in this country. He 
wrote a series of articles for the American Numismatic Journal, 
descriptive of the rare coins in this collection. At the time of 
his death he was engaged in the task of rearranging and renum- 
bering the collection of Greek and Roman coins in the Metro- 
politan Museum of Art, New York City. He was a member 
of the American Numismatic and Archeological Society of New 
York, of the Royal Numismatic Society of England, and the 
Society for Hellenic Studies of London. 

Besides his scientific studies, Mr. Benson took much interest 
in the benevolent enterprises of his native city. For many years 
he was a director of the Brooklyn Hospital, and of the Brooklyn 
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. He was also 
interested in many other associations. At the time of his death 
he was a director of the Long Island Historical Society, a mem- 
ber of the Executive Committee of the Brooklyn Institute of 
Arts and Sciences, the Brooklyn League, American Zoological 
Society, the American Geographical Society, the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, the Sons of the Revo- 
lution, and the Society of Colonial Wars. He was also a member 
of the Hamilton, Yale, University and Grolier Clubs, and 
Treasurer of the Heights Casino. 

Nor was Mr. Benson less interested in the welfare of the 
church. He was an active member of the Grace Episcopal 
Church, of which the Rev. Dr. C. F. J. Wrigley is rector, served 
also as its treasurer, and was one of the best known layman in 
the diocese. Always a liberal giver, he made it possible for the 

246 Southold, N. Y., Town Records. [Oct., 

Church Charity Foundation to rid itself of a large debt which 
was entirely liquidated last year. The Benson family in October, 
1905, offered to give $40,000 to clear the debt provided the 
members of the church gave the balance. In a little over a year 
the amount was raised. 

In his address at the last Diocesan Convention of the Epis- 
copal Church of Long Island, Bishop Burgess refers to the 
subject of our sketch in these words: 

" Frank Sherman Benson represents a noble type of American 
character. Throughout his school and college days, as his class- 
mates will testify, he had set a high standard, nothing coarse or 
impure entered into his mind, he lived his life on a high plane; 
nor had he any of that greed to amass money for the sake of the 
power which it gives. He viewed with some misgiving that 
adulation of millionaire philanthropists which ill accords with 
the thought of American independence, and that acceptance of 
huge gifts for public institutions which might better be pro- 
vided by popular subscription or taxation. At any rate he did 
not enter into schemes for the accumulation of power, but lived 
his life to the glory of God and for the good of mankind." 

Mr. Frank Sherman Benson was married November 11, 1886, 
in New York City, to Elizabeth Woodbridge Hoe, daughter of 
Robert Hoe and Alvira Phelps James Hoe. She died May 5, 1889, 
leaving a daughter, Thyrza, who survives her parents.

1907.] Inscriptions in Milltown Cemetery, Southeast, N.Y. 273 


Copied by Emma J. Foster and Julia R. Livingston. 

Milltown is the name of a locality on the Croton River near 
the middle of the Oblong, and adjoining Doanesburg in Putnam 
(formerly Dutchess) County, N. Y., and took its name from mills 
built on the Croton at this point, before the Revolution. Its 
early settlers were members of Rev. Elisha Kent's church at 
Doanesburg, then East Philippi, and some of them are buried 
there. They were the Halls, the Cranes, the Sears, the Weeds, 
etc. Charles Cullen, who married Lucy, daughter of Rev. Elisha 
Kent, in 1773, had a house and store at Milltown, where at a later 
date Capt. Ichabod Doolittle kept a tavern, a favorite resort for 
travellers to and from Danbury. 

In the Milltown burying-ground are found the same names 
and representatives of the same families as are found in Doanes- 

The inscriptions given below include all those before i860, 
except it may be in the case of a husband and wife when the 
more recent dates are given. E. J. F.

1. Yellis 1 Jansen de Mandeville,* the founder of the family 
in this country is traced as early as 1657 at Voorthuizen, a village 
near Garderen in Holland. His father's name was Jan, perhaps 
that Jan Jansen who in 1627 was Candidate at the Reformed 
Church at Koolwyck, also near Garderen, and died at the latter 
place in 1657. 

The Garderen Marriage and Baptismal Registers before 1664, 
are unfortunately lost, but there is a tombstone in the ancient 

* In English Giles, variously spelled Yellis, Gellis, lilies or Jillis, in the 
public records and elsewhere. 

The name de Mandeville, also written Magnavilla, Magnavil, Mannueile, 
Mauneville, signifying of, or from the great town, originated in Normandy, 
and is one of considerable antiquity. Mandeviel is a frequent appellation in 
the Low Countries, and this spelling is usual in the early Dutch Records in 

1907.] Yellis Jansen de Mandeville and Some of His Descendants. 285 

church there, mostly unintelligible, to a younger son of the de 
Mandeville family who died 14 Oct., 165-. 

Yellis de Mandeville came to America in the de Trouw {Faith), 
12 Feb., 1659, with his "wife and four children of 1%, 5, 6 and 9 
years." The children's names are not given, and Yellis is called 
Gilles Jansen Van Garder. (Garderen in the Veluwe, Guelder- 
land, Holland.) 

He paid fso for the passage of his wife and himself, and fio 
for each child; or 90 guilders in all.* 

The name of Gillis de Mandeivile on the original list of the 
vessel Moesman, in April, 1659, indicates that he was not a 
passenger, but only a debtor to the Dutch West India Company, 
for a small sum advanced by them.f 

Yellis probably lived for a time somewhere on Long Island. 
Two of his children were from New Amersfoort (Flatlands). 
He was perhaps that Gilles Jansen rated there in Sept., 1676, for 
10 morgens of land, etc. \ 

Riker states that Yellis de Mandeville bought a farm at 
Flatbush (probably the land in the jurisdiction of Hempstead, 
valued above all his other possessions, devised by will to his son 
Hendrick), and received afterwards a grant of 30 acres at Green- 
wich, N. Y., laid out 5 Dec, 1679; patented 30 Dec, 1680. 

No lands granted or sold to Yellis de Mandeville are recorded 
in the Flatbush Records, but many Dutch Patents and Indian 
Deeds were destroyed or sent to England after 1664. 

No New Amsterdam Records mention him, but we find Gilles 
Janszen Mandiviel and his wife Elsje Hendricx as members of 
the New York Dutch Church, 31 May, 1677, and Jillis, Elsje and 
Grietie Mandeviel living above the ancient pond Kalch-hock 
in i686.§ 

The Mandeville estate extended from below 14th street to 
2 1 st street, though not parallel to either, and from the Hudson 
River to Warren Road. This part of Manhattan Island was 
known as Greenwich, Sappokaniken, Shappanaconk, or New 

Yellis sold to David Mandeville, doubtless his son, on 14 May, 
1700, 53 morgens of land (126 acres), including the Greenwich 
bowery then occupied by the said David Mandeville, and ap- 
parently meadows on the west side of the Hudson River. The 
land was particularly described in a grant from Governor Nicholls, 
and in a deed of Johannes Vanbroughen and Jacob Veranger to 
Jacob Vandegrift; the latter sold the same to Yellis Mandeville, 
2 June, 1679.ll 

Yellis and his wife were sponsors at a baptism, 16 March, 1701, 
and his will was proved 22 May, following, by his widow. 

This will, dated 15 Sept., 1696, signed Yeelise de Mandville, 
mentions all his children, eldest son Hendrick, son David, daus.

Tryntje, now wife of Cornells Jansen de Seenn; Aeltie, now wife 
of Lowren Johnsen; Gerritie, now wife of Pieter Meet; Griettie, 
now wife of John Meet. Elsie, his wife, to be sole executrix, 
after her death their sons Hendrick and David. The original 
will may befound in the Surrogate's Office in New York City. 
The signature only is in Mr. Mandeville's handwriting, and bears 
an unidentified heraldic seal.* 

The names of Yellis's children as transcribed in Liber II, 108, 
N. Y. Wills, contain several mistakes, repeated in the published 
Wills of the N. Y. Historical Society, and elsewhere. Issue: 

2 i. Hendrick, 2 prob.b. in Guilderland, Holland, about 1650; 

see beyond. 

3 ii. David, prob. b. in American; see beyond. 

iii. Tryntje (Catherine), prob. b. in Holland, about 1652-3, 
doubtless the eldest daughter. Her husband, from 
Alkmar, Holland, called Cornells Jansen de Seenn by 
her father, was doubtless Cornells Jansse Seeu, who 
took the Oath of Allegiance at Flatbush, Sept., 1687, 
having been here 27 years. In the Otter in which he 
crossed the Atlantic, Feb., 1659, and at the baptisms 
of some of his children, he figures as Cornells Jansen 
Van der Veer, or from the ferry. He was landowner, 
magistrate and patentee at Flatbush. Children: 
Cornells; 8 Neeltje, m. 13 Aug., 1658, Daniel Polhemus; 
Dominicus, bap. 16 Nov., 1679; Jan; Maria, bap. 30 
July, 1682; Hendrickje, bap. 27 Aug., 1684; Jacoba, 
bap. 9 April, 1686; and pern. Jacobus and Michael. f 

iv. Aeltje (Elsie), m. Laurens Jansen de Camp. They 
were members of the Dutch Church in New Utrecht 
in 1677, and after 1687 removed to Staten Island, 
N. Y. For their children: Joannes, bap. 2 April, 
1677, sponsors Joannes Gillisz and Tryntje Gilles; 
Johannes; Styntje; Hendrick; Aegidius; Werachie, 
and Aeltje, see Onderdonck's Mss. L. I. Dutch Records, 
and Morrison's De Camp Genealogy. 

v. Gerritie (Gertrude). The marriage banns of Gerritie 
Gillis, maiden of Nordwyck (Greenwich, N. Y.), and 
Wiert Eppens, bachelor, from Ester Buzum, were 
published in the New York Dutch Church, 15 Sept., 
1 68 1, and they were married 7 Oct., the same year, 
at Bergen, N. J. Gerritie and her husband generally 
known as Wiert Epke Banta, were members of the 
Hackensack Dutch Church. Banta, b. at Minnertsga, 
Holland, in May, 1658; d. before 3 July, 1689, when

The latter was on the Bushwick Assessment Roll, 
8 July, 1683, and still alive 15 Sept., 1696. 

The marriage of his widow to Increase Power, b. 
near Boston, was registered at Hackensack, 24 July, 
1699, where he was a Church member in 17 15. 

For Gerritie's Banta children, Wiert, Henricus, 
Elsje and Jacob, see A Friesland Family, Banta. 

Increase and Gerritie Power had: Tryntje and 
Sara, bap. 18 March, 1700; Jacob, bap. 25 May, 1702; 
David, bap. 1 April, 1703; Isaac, bap. 1 Feb., 1707. 
These baptisms were all recorded at Hackensack 
save Jacob's. He was baptized in the New York 
Dutch Church, where most of the baptisms men- 
tioned in this sketch will be found. 

vi. Grietie (Margaret), of New Amersfoort, m. xi May, 
1687, in New York, where both were then residing, 
Jan Pieterse Meet, from Old Amersfoort, in the 
in the Diocese of Utrecht. Jan Meet (Meeck, Mead), 
b. in Holland about 1660, was son of Pieter Jansen 
Meet, whose second wife was Gerritie Mandeville 
(ante). Jan sold a lot in Flatbush in Feb., 1692-3, 
and was one of the Pacquenac, N. J., Patentees in 
1695* In 1703 he was apparently of New York with 
one male, one female and six children in his family. 
Issue: Pieter, bap. 20 Oct., 1689; Johannes, bap. 25 
March, 1691; Jacob, bap. 18 Jan., 1693; Christina, 
bap. 27 Oct., 1695; Elsje, bap. 12 July or Aug., 1696, 
at Hackensack; Maria, bap. 31 May, 1700; Gilles, 
bap. 14 Oct., 1702. 

vii. Jan (prob.), Bergen, the De Camp Genealogy, and Mun- 
sell's American Ancestry, all attribute a son Jan to 
Yellis de Mandeville, some say b. at 1655, and of 
Westchester Co.; evidence neither quoted nor found. 
Probably Joannes Mandeville, sponsor at the baptism 
of Joannes de Camp in 1677; Johannes Mandeviel, 
witness at the baptism of Henricus Banta (ante), and 
Jan above were indentical. There are numerous 
entries relative to Jan Gilles in the early Dutch 
Records, but no others with the surname Mandeville 

viii. William, prob. son of Yellis, is said to have lived on 
the paternal estate at Shappanaconk. William Man- 
deviel, merchant of New York, d. at Seatalcott, in 
the North Riding of Yorkshire on Long Island, 
where the principal part of his property was situ- 
ated. Letters were issued to his widow, Elizabeth, 
30 Oct., 1679.1

If William were son of Yellis, he was prob. b. in 
Holland, having reached man's estate in 1679, and 
was perhaps ae. 1%. in April, 1659 (ante). 

2. Hendrick 5 de Mandeville (Yellis 1 ), of New Nordwyck and 
Hempstead, N. Y., and Pacquenac, N. J., prob. b. in Holland 
about 1650; d. at Pacquenac, now Mountain View, about 17 12. 
His marriage entry reads: " Hendrick Jilliszen de Mandeviel, 
j. m., Uyt Gelderl 1 . & Annetje Pieterse Scholl, j. d., woonende d' 
Eerste op Noortwyck, & twede op Hempstede, ingeshreven 6 
Iuni, 1680, getrouwt den 18 Iul. op N. Amersfoort."* 

The Dutch Church Records of Flatbush, L. I., where the 
above marriage was also recorded give Hendrick's then residence 
as New Nordwyck, showing that Nordwyck, in connection with 
the Mandevilles, whether accompanied by the word new, or not, 
meant Greenwich, N. Y., or adjacent parts. 

Annetje Scholl, b. in Hempstead, bap. in New Amsterdam) 
16 July, 1662, was daughter of Pieter Jansen Scholl (Scholt* 
Schal), from the Hague, Holland, who was sometime of Byooklyn 
and Flatbush, N. Y., and on the Hempstead Census in 1673. 
Her mother was Margaritje Provoost. 

Adam Mott, Jr., sold to Hendrick Mandefell 50 acres in the 
south woods at Hempstead, 18 March, 1684, and Peter Johnson 
Scoll, the 14th of the next June gave 50 adjoining acres to his 
beloved son-in-law Hendrick Mandefell.f No further disposition 
of this land is to be found in the printed Town Records of 

Hendrick Mandevele witnessed a deed of Robert Bedell, Jr.'s, 
at Hempstead, 7 April, 1687. 

On 11 May, 1695, having purchased the Indian title to the 
same, Major Anthony Brockholst and Capt. Arent Schuyler in 
behalf of themselves and their associates, Samuel Bayard, George 
Ryerson, John Mead (Jan Meet, ante), Samuel Berrie, David 
and Hendrick Mandeville, obtained a patent for 5,500 acres of 
land from the East Jersey proprietors at Pacquenac, or Pompton 
Plains, N. J.I 

Hendrick de Mandeville may have removed thither about 
1700, but in 1703, Hendrick Gillise, perhaps Mandeville, living in 
New York, had one male, one female and three children in his

3. David 8 Mandeville (Yellis 1 ), of New Amersfoort and New 
York City, was prob. b. on Long Island, and the youngest of the 
family. His Greenwich and Pompton land purchases have 
already been noted. 

David Mandeville, bachelor, from New Amersfoort, m. 19 July, 
1700, in New York, Marytie Van Hoesen (Van Hoese, Van 
House, Van Goese), maiden from Albany, the former living in 
New York, the latter in New Albany. 

Marytje was doubtless a descendant, or kinswoman, of Jan 
Frans Van Hoesen, one of the earliest patentees of Claverack, 
N. Y., which would account for her grandsons going to reside 
there about 1778. 

Catherine Van Huse of New York, deeded three or four Eng- 
lish acres at Bassen Bowery (Greenwich, N. Y.), to her daughter 
Marytie Mandeville, 16 Jan., 1724, David Mandeville being then 
alive. Deed recorded for Yellis Mandeville, 5 Oct., 1762.1 

American Ancestry, following some Mandeville Mss., con- 
founds two David Mandevilles. One was of Weehauken, it is 
said, and kept the ferry. The same person did not marry suc- 
cessively Marytie Van Hoesen and Jannetie Wortendyk, or

4. David" Mandeville (Hendrick,* Yellis 1 ), bachelor, from 
Hempstead, living at Pegquenck, N. J., and Jannetje Jacobs 
Woertendyk, maiden from the Bowery, N. Y., were m. 10 June, 

American Ancestry states that Hendrick Mandeville had a son 
David, but omits the proof, but as Hendrick, son of the first 
Yellis de Mandeville was of Hempstead, L. I., and Pegquenck, 
N. J., and David above, of the same localities, and Antie Hen- 
drickse Mandeville of Pegquenck, was born in Hempstead, we 
conclude that David was son of Hendrick. Further David Man- 
deville, Sr., is not known to have been of Hempstead, and had a 
son David, bap. in 1709 (ante), and would hardly have called a 
second son David, had he already one of the name living. 

Jeannetie Jacobs, bap. in New York, 16 March, 1687, was 
daughter of Jacob Cornelissen Stille and his second wife, Marytie 
Hendrix. Her grandfather, Cornells Jacobsen Stille, or Van 
Vreelandt, was in New Amsterdam as early as 163 1, and resided 
at the head of what is now Chatham Square. His descendants 
assumed the names of Woertendyk and Somerendyk.f Issue:

6. Jacob 4 Mandeville (David, 3 Hendrick, a Yellis ' ), bap. 10 Jan., 
171 1 ; was doubtless that Jacob Mendevell who resided in Phil- 
lipse Precinct, Dutchess Co., in 1772. 

The will of Thomas Davenport, of that Precinct, 10 Oct., 1746* 
mentions among others the children of his dau., Sarah Mande- 
ville; she prob. m. Jacob Mandeville above, and had a dau., Sarah, 
b. 18 Sept., 1736, who m. Major Joshua Nelson * 

The latter and Daniel Birdsall are called " cousins " (nephews?), 
in the will of Cornelius Mandeville. The said Daniel Birdsall m. 
20 Dec, 1757, Hannah, prob. dau. of Jacob Mandeville, before 
mentioned, and b. 7 Nov., 1737. She was not the dau. of Cor- 
nelius Mandeville, as his child, Hannah, was neither 18, norm.* 
at the date of his will in 1768. 

7. Cornelius 4 Mandeville (David, 3 Hendrick, 8 Yellis ' ), of Cort- 
landt Manor, or Peekskill, N. Y., bap. 11 May, 1720; went from 
Garrison, Putnam Co. (then Dutchess), to Cortlandt Manor, 
where he bought 64 acres of Schurman Travis, 2 Dec, 1752, and 
99 acres on 4 May, 1763, of Wm. Horton. Cornelius Mandeville 
sold before 2 March, 1763, a lot to David Pennoyer, on the road 
to Travis Landing, and another lot to David Bernard before 
3 Aug., 1764. His holdings were in the heart of Peekskill. 

The will of Cornelius Mandeville dated 24 March, 1768, proved 
30 May, the same year, names wife Rachel, children David, John, 
Nathan, James, Martha, Anne and Hannah Mandeville. Wife 
Rachel and cousins Joshua Nelson and Daniel Birdsall executors, f 

Rachel Horton, his wife, according to the statement of her 
granddaughter, Johanna Odell, came from Long Island. Mr. 
George W. Cocks of Glen Cove, L. I., believes Rachel to have 
been the dau. of Joseph and Rachel (Coles) Horton. The said 
Joseph, doubtless a descendant of Barnabas Horton of Southold, 
L. I., was of North Castle, Westchester Co., N. Y., in 1725, and 
of Oyster Bay, L. I., in 1730. , 

Rachel (Coles) Horton was dau. of Nathan Coles of Musketa 
Cove, whose will mentions his grandson, Lazarus Horton. Note 
that one of the sons of Cornelius Mandeville was called Nathan.

1726; called Gerard in his marriage entry 14 March, 1749, to 
Dorothea Vander Hoef, and elsewhere Jurgen. The English 
equivalent of Jurian and Jurgen is George, nevertheless he is 
apparently the son Jeremiah of his father's will, perhaps from 
the Dutch nickname Jurrie. He is called Jeremiah in various 
deeds conveying his father's estate. Issue:

The current number ends the 38th Volume of the Record, and the 
Society can look back with honest pride upon a publication which for 
thirty-eight consecutive years has been devoted to the best interests of 
biography and genealogy. The early years of the Record's existence were 
those of constant struggle, not only to obtain means of perpetuating in print 
records which were rapidly disintegrating, but also to select out of an immense 
mass of undigested data such material as would attract the interest of the 
general public toward the study of family history. 

Although ancestor worship flourished from the earliest period of history 
among the primitive nations, curiously enough the advance of civilization 
brought contempt upon religious reverence for our more remote sires. The 
independence of the American Colonies also tended to do away with many of 
the patriarchal customs, and notably with the respect for ancient and honorable 
lineage, so cultivated and cherished in all the mother-lands. 

To the New England States must be attributed the first important step to 
revive interest in American genealogy, and by the publication of the New 
England Historical- Genealogical Register, Boston gave the first impulse 
toward the gentle science of tracing descent in this country. 

The Record may justly claim to be the next magazine in importance to 
take up biographical and genealogical publications and to attempt to accom- 
plish for New York City and State the task of creating interest in early ancestry. 

From 1869-1884 the publication of the Record appealed only to a limited 
circle of family historians, but in 1883 a great movement for the organization of 
patriotic societies took place and gave the first general stimulus to genealogical 
research. Hundreds of ancestral, patriotic and semi-military associations 
sprang up, counting their members by the thousands, all of whom were eager 
to trace lineal descent from a Colonial or Revolutionary grand-sire. The 
larger libraries soon found it important to acquire for their shelves those 
leading family histories then in print and to organize as complete a genealogical 
department as possible. The Record soon felt the influence of this movement 
by increased subscriptions and a series of valuable contributions for publica- 
tion, mainly consisting of military lists and muster-rolls dealing with the early 
Colonial and Revolutionary Wars. In the last few years, however, the mem- 

Rev. Melatiah Everett Dwight, D. D., M. D., late 
President of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, died at his summer home, Mount Holyoke, North- 
ampton, Massachusetts, Saturday, September 14, 1907, in the 
66th year of his age. 

He was elected a Life Member of this Society December 
28, 1894, and since that time has occupied with energy and 
the best of judgment almost all of the offices in the gift of 
this Society. 

In his death the Officers and Members of the Society 
suffer an irremediable loss. 

As Editor of The Record and Chairman of the Publica- 
tion Committee, in addition to his excellent judgment in his 
official capacity, he bestowed upon The Record marked 
evidences of his love and generosity which have been largely 
instrumental in bringing that publication to its present high 

His lovable and gentle disposition will always be a 
delightful memory to those with whom his association with 
the Society have brought him in contact. 

Chairman of the Executive Committee.

bership in these patriotic societies appears to have reached a more or less 
stable maximum and there has been a falling-off in the number of those 
searching for descent from the early patriots. 

A spirit of critical analysis in tracing out pedigrees, has developed, how- 
ever, and greater accuracy in proving beyond reasonable doubt all heraldic 
and genealogical claims will in the course of time add invaluable private fam- 
ily documents to the present public records. 

In spite of the apparent halt in the pursuit of ancestral problems, the 
object of the Record is steadily maintained— the perpetuation of town, county 
and church records in New York State and the publication of the portraits and 
biographical sketches of such citizens as deserve to be enrolled in the history 
of families. 

The time appears to be opportune for an earnest appeal to those who 
possess portraits and biographical data of the early settlers in New Amsterdam 
JP P u .t such material into shape and send it to the Publication Committee. 
The life annals of these early Dutch and English worthies should prove of the 
highest interest and be an agreeable variation from the useful but dry records 
of minor families, churches and tombstones throughout the State. There is 
also a demand for material showing the lineage of the early settlers in their 
native lands of England and Holland as too few families have succeeded in 
tracing a connecting link with kith and kin over the sea. 

The Record may now be said to be on a self-supporting basis but to 
insure its future for all time a liberal endowment fund is needed. Any mem- 
ber or group of members of this Society who would set about securing such a 
fund would not only earn the thanks of all interested in genealogical research 
but raise up a permanent memorial to the founders of this land. 


A special meeting of the Board of Trustees was held at the Society's office 
on Monday, July 20, 1907, at 11 A. M. Present: Messrs. Morrison, Walker, 
Wright, Gibson and Totten. 

The following resolutions were presented and unanimously adopted: 

Whereas, The New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society has learned with deep sorrow of the death at Bridge- 
hampton, Long Island, on July 4, 1907, of Mr. Bowen Whiting 
Pierson, a member of this Society since November 9, 1894, who 
served the Society during the period from his election to death 
in the various capacities of Trustee, Treasurer and Member of 
the Executive Committee; and 

Whereas, His services were characterized by energy, faith- 
fulness and unflagging zeal in the interests of the Society, there- 
fore be it 

Resolved, That The New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society in the death of Mr. Pierson recognizes the loss 
of a faithful and efficient officer, and a friend whose efforts were 
ever directed to the promotion of the Society's welfare; and be 
it further 

Resolved, That the Publication Committee of the Society 
be requested to prepare a suitable memorial sketch of Mr. Pierson 
for publication in The New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Record; and be it further 

Resolved, That these Resolutions be spread upon the 
minutes of the Society and published in The Record, and that a 
copy of them be sent to Mr. Pierson's family.

Connecticut Town Records. 
The Connecticut Historical Society is actively engaged in copying and 
printing the ancient vital records of the towns in that State. In their appeal to 
members of the Society and others for funds to carry on this praiseworthy work, 
it is stated that of the 106 towns incorporated before 1800, the records of only 
15 have been printed verbatim, and even then not always completely. The 
records of about 10 more have been partly printed in periodicals. Upwards of 
60 towns, including some of the oldest, and historically most important 
in the State, have never had any part of their records printed. Owing to the 
remoteness of many of these towns from railroads, the records are extremely 
difficult of access, and even when found are entered on the leaves of the 
volumes of deeds, wherever the clerk chose; sometimes in the order of date, 
but without any regard to arrangement by families, and without index. The 
Committee who have volunteered to superintend the copying, arranging and 
printing of these records estimate that $5,000, together with the proceeds of 
sales, will be sufficient to publish the records of all towns incorporated before 
i8oo,'and it is expected that at least one volume will appear during the present 
year. The amount of money is very small when the value of these records is 
taken into consideration, and as the committee gives its service without 
remuneration, this plan to publish and so perpetuate these early town records 
deserve support and should prove successful. Would that the prospect of 
publishing the town records of our own State was as promising.
