PREFACE. 

On the 31st of August 1898, a meeting of the descendants of 
Nicholas White was held at Historical Hall, in Taunton, under the 
auspices of the Old Colony Historical Society. At this meeting 
an association was formed called the Nicholas White Genealogical 
and Historical Association. Rev. Nehemiah White, D. D., of 
Galesburg, 111., was chosen president, Mrs. Clara Isabel Hubbard 
of Taunton, secretary ; and Thomas J. Lothrop, historian. Mrs. 
Fanny M. Leonard of Taunton, contributed a poem which was 
well received. She also contributed a poem for each of the three 
subsequent meetings held in the years 1899, 1900 and 1901. 

At the first meeting in 1898, after remarks had been made by 
several of the descendants, it was voted unanimously that a gene- 
alogy of the descendants of Nicholas White should be compiled, 
and the historian soon entered upon the work. 

For the compilation, the records of many towns and the land 
and probate records of several counties in Massachusetts were ex- 
amined. Local histories and printed genealogies of allied families 
were searched and considerable material taken from these sources. 
Frequent use has been made of Clark's History of Norton, 
Chaffin's History of Easton, and Mitchell's Bridgewater, The 
"Halls of New England" the Read Genealogy by J. W. Read, 
the Eddy, Guild, Drake, Hodges and Pratt genealogies have 
furnished much information and some items have been supplied 
by Austin's One Hundred and Sixty Allied Families. In all cases, 
however, where a discrepancy appeared between the printed book 
and the town records, the latter has been followed. 

After the work was well under way the compiler learned that a 
Nicholas White genealogy had been begun by the late William R. 
Deane and that his manuscript had been placed in the files of the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society. This manuscript 
was borrowed and compared with the results of the compiler's 
investigations; no important discrepancy was found. Mr. Deane's 
manuscript, however, included only the male lines of the first four 
generations and did not claim to give a full record of them. 

Besides the sources of information already named individual 
members of the family were applied to. Prompt responses were 
usually made to these applications and in this way much valuable 
assistance has been given. In obtaining the numerous descen- 



dants of Mary 3 White, who married Nathaniel Wetherell, mate- 
rial aid has been furnished by Mrs. Lucinda L. Lincoln, Miss 
Catherine L. Bassett both of Taunton and Mrs. Eliza J. Osborne 
of Middleboro, all descendants of said Mary 3. Miss Sarah W. 
Copeland of Mansfield contributed the valuable record of the de- 
scendants of Martha 5 White who married William Copeland. 

J. E. Seaver, Esq., secretary of the Old Colony Historical So- 
ciety furnished the extensive record of the descendants of Mary 4 
White who married William Presbrey and from whom are descen- 
ded nearly all and perhaps all of the Presbreys now living in 
Taunton. 

For the descendants of Nicholas 5 White, I am indebted to Mr. 
H. Clure White of Gaines, N. Y. The important and extended 
record of the descendants of Philip 5 White is the work of his 
grandson Rev. Nehemiah White, D. D., of Galesburg, 111., who 
has been president of Lombard University and is now at the head 
of its Theological Department. 

In the early part of the work the compilation was much en- 
couraged and assisted by Mrs. Henrietta E. V. Hayes who died in 
Sept. 1901. She took a deep interest in the matter and to her is 
due the credit of originating the movement which has resulted in 
this compilation. Besides those already mentioned ; the follow- 
ing should be named as important aiders and abettors in the work : 
Miss Josephine L. Hall of Boston, Miss Clara A. Avery of De- 
troit, Mich., Mr. A. J. Turner, of Portage, Wis., Miss Elizabeth 
Crafts, of Abington, Mr. William P. Wetherell of Washington, 
D. C, Miss Elizabeth H. Leonard and Mrs. Alice B. Leonard both 
of Mansfield. To each and all of them, and to all who have in 
any way contributed to the compilation, I here acknowledge my 
obligations and extend my thanks. 

Very few abbreviations are used in the book, the letter "b" is 
used to indicate born in the list of names of children. When 
the name of a town situated in Massachusetts is used, there is no 
abbreviation to indicate the state, but when the town is in another 
state the common abbreviations are used. In giving the names of 
children, the surname is omitted when it is White, and the child is 
descended in a male line from the pioneer. In other cases the sur- 
name is given in full. 

The compiler hopes his work will afford a basis for further and 
more complete ancestral investigations. Much additional material 
has been collected and may be used for another volume to include 
the eighth and subsequent generations. 



NICHOLAS WHITE OF DORCHESTER AND 
TAUNTON.— PIONEER 



We have no knowledge of the birth and ancestry of Nicholas 
White, but that he belonged to the yeomanry of England we have 
no doubt. When, and how he came to New England, we do not 
know. He was a freeman in Dorchester in 1643, and about the 
same time married Susanna, a daughter of Jonas and Frances 
Humphrey, who had also settled in Dorchester. At this time he 
was probably about 25 years of age, and had won the confidence 
and respect of the early settlers. 

In 1657 the first book of the Dorchester records was destroyed 
by fire. This book is said to have contained the records of the 
early births, marriages and deaths, the assignment of lots to the 
settlers, and the transfers of property. We have reason to believe 
that it contained the record of his marriage and the births of his 
children, as well as many facts relating to his life and doings while 
in Dorchester. Many interesting and important facts were un- 
doubtedly lost with the book. 

The knowledge we have obtained relating to Nicholas White 
has come from Massachusetts State Archives, Plymouth Colony 
Records, Suffolk probate and land offices, and various other 
sources. 

In 1647 he bought from Henry Woolcot a tract of land in that 
part of Dorchester which was then called Uncaty, and is now 
the town of Milton. He cleared a part of it and built a house, but 
before he was able to enjoy the benefit of his labor he was sued 
by a Mr. Hutchinson, who claimed a prior title. Hutchinson 
obtained judgment and ousted him from the premises. He then 
sued Woolcot on his warranty and obtained judgment against him. 
An execution was issued and Woolcot gave bills to satisfy it, but 
without the knowledge of White petitioned the General Court for 
a stay of proceedings and the annulment of the bills. The peti- 
tion was granted. Nicholas White then presented to the General 
Court a petition in which he set forth the facts in the case and 



6 PTONEER. 

from which we can obtain some knowledge of his family and the 
condition of his estate. The papers in the case may be found in 
the Massachusetts State Archives. Below is a copy of the order 
of the Court, adopted on Woolcot's petition ; also a copy of the 
petition of White and order thereon. The petition of Woolcot 
was not found in the archives. 

Answer to Petition op Henry Woolcot. 

In answer to the petition of Henry Woolcot of Winsor 
on Connecticut it is ordered that all proceedings about 
the thirty pounds seven shillings mentioned in the 
petition be suspended, and that it remain in statu quo 
prius as before the execution levied, until the peti- 
tioner may have opportunity either jointly with Nicho- 
las White or in the name and right of the said White, 
though his consent should be wanting, that the peti- 
Vol. iv. tioner, either by himself or his attorney, may have 

Part i. ' opportunity to review or try an action as aforesaid, 

Page 232. for the clearing of the title of the land sold by the 
petitioner unto the said White, in the County Court 
to be held at Boston in the 5th (or 8th) month next. 
And if the land shall be recovered of Mr. Hutchinson 
for the said White, then the bills for the thirty pounds 
seven shillings to be null without more impleading of 
White ; and also that the Magistrates then shall de- 
termine all damages respecting Mr. Woolcot and 
Nicholas White, in reference to all former proceed- 
ings by their impleading each of other. 
Adopted May 29, 1665. 

Petition of Nicholas White and Order Thereon. 

To the Right Hon. Governor, the Deputy Governor and 
Magistrates, with the Worthy Deputies of this 
Honored Court: 

Humbly Showeth that your petitioner in August, 1647, 
purchased a piece of land at the hand of Mr. Henry 
Woolcot, containing about 20 acres, scituate in Dor- 
chester, with assurance under hand, for a firm con- 
veyance to be made in due time, & in the meantime 
was put in peaceable possession of the said land, built 
upon, broke, and fenced much of it ; yet before any 
crop had thereon was molested, sued, overcome & 



PIONEER. 



ousted of his lawful purchase by Mr. Hutchinson, of 
whom he was forced to hire his own again and with it 
compelled to rent his farm, the which being so great 
an undertaking for your petitioner occasioned his sud- 
den poverty, and thereupon forced to forsake his own 
with his wife and five small children, to seek subsist- 
ence far remote ; and in his absence the house burned, 
fence razed, the ground broken up, is grown up again 
and all ruined and brought to naught. 
The petitioner sued Mr. Henry Woolcot, recovered dam- 
State ages to the value of forty pounds, irrevocable, he re- 
Archives, ceived bills of Mr. Woolcot for payment & expect- 
Book ing the same in time & kind. Mr. Woolcot, un- 
38-196-197 known to your petitioner, hath received a grant from 
this Honored Court to make his said bills void, whereby 
Vol. IV. your petitioner is now left naked and destitute, him- 
Part I. self his wife and children having neither his land re- 
Page 260. stored, his due damages paid, nor opportunity to find 
his family with bread, by this trouble, and charge hath 
accrued hereupon ; wherefore your petitioner humbly 
requesteth this Honored Court to compassionate his 
sad condition and vouchsafe to grant that his case 
may be heard and rightly understood so as that with 
all possible speed he be repossessed of his said land, 
and that such damages he hath sustained by means of 
default as above said may be paid him by Mr. Wool- 
cot, and your petitioner put in capacity to relieve 
his family, for which he is willing to refer himself to 
this Honored Court & to take the land as prized in 
part payment, so shall he as in duty bound praying 
your happiness & remain your humble servant. 

NICHOLAS WHITE. 

In answer to this petition the Committee doth appre- 
hend that Nicholas White hath had much wrong and 
damage in being ousted of his land by Mr. Hutchin- 
son, whererof he was possessed and whereunto (as it 
doth appear) he had just title. Therefore he ought 
to seek reparation legally at the hands of his disturb- 
ers, and that the General Court order dated 24 May, 
1655, respecting this case be and remain in full force.

O PIONEER. 

The deputies approve of the return of the committee 
in answer to this petition & desire the consent of 
the Honorable Magistrates thereunto. 

WILLIAM TORREY, Clerk. 

Consented to by the Magistrates. 

EDWARD RAWSON, Recorder. 

It will be seen that the order in answer to Woolcot's petition 
was adopted in May, 1655. The petition was probably presented 
at the same session of the Court. White's petition was presented 
and the order adopted thereon in May, 1656. White had then 
moved to Taunton. 

Whether or not suit was brought against Hutchinson by either 
Woolcot or White, as recommended by the Court, does not appear. 
There seems to be no record of any further proceedings in either 
the County or General Court. It is probable that the property 
was in some way restored to White. September 12, 1659, the 
Selectmen of Dorchester (to use the language of the record) 
" desired William Robinson to inquire how long Thomas Trott 
hath lived at Uncaty in Nicholas White's house." In June, 1663, 
an inventory was taken of the estate of Thomas Gatlive, deceased, 
which included the following item : " Land at Milton bought of 
Goodman White £140." In October, 1664, Jonathan, a son of 
Thomas Gatlive, sold this property to David Holmes, and the 
deed given by him contains a description of the premises, from 
which it appears that it was situated in the easterly part of Milton, 
near the Braintree line. 

When did Nicholas White move to Taunton? This question 
cannot be answered definitely. In 1652 he mortgaged a part of 
his real estate to John Gill, of Dorchester. In the mortgage he 
is described as a resident of Dorchester. The record of a lawsuit 
at Plymouth between Jonathan Briggs and William Hailstone 
shows that in October, 1655, he was a resident of Taunton. His re- 
moval must have been between 1652 and Oct., 1655 ; probably in the 
spring of 1655, when he had obtained judgment against Woolcot, 
and supposed the controversy settled. His petition presented to 
the General Court in 1656 states that he was obliged "to seek 
subsistence far remote." What he meant by " far remote " is not 
clear, but it is probable that Taunton was intended. At that time 
there was no settlement between Dorchester and Taunton, and 
neither roads nor bridges. Although the distance between the 
two settlements was only about 30 miles the wilderness inter- 
vening, made it seem much more. 



PIONEER. 9 

In 1657 he was included in the list of the inhabitants of 
Taunton, who had taken the " oath of fidelity." He was very 
early an owner in the Taunton Iron Works and was prominently 
connected with them for many years. Among the entries in the 
books of the Iron Works Company is one which reads as follows, 
viz. : " delivered to Nicholas White, Sr., to carry through the 
wilderness, 32 miles to Major E. Tyng, 7c. of iron ; also to 
Madame Leverett, of Boston, 7c. of iron, and for Samuel Capen 
3c. 2 qr. for Dorchester Church, due for 1683-4." 

Besides his interest in the Iron Works he soon became the 
owner of a quarter of a saw mill situated on Mill river ; the exact 
location is not definitely known. The saw mill gave the people of 
Taunton some annoyance by stopping the run of the fish up the 
stream, to the ponds above. "October 31, 1666, George Watson, 
Gyles Gilbert and William Wetherell (all of whom resided or 
owned property near Watson's and Winnecunnet ponds) com- 
plained at the Plymouth Court against James Walker, Robert 
Crossman, John Macomber and Nicholas White, in an action of 
trespass on the case, to the damage of an hundred pounds for 
hindering the fish for having a convenient passage up and down 
Mill River at Tauuton by the work about the saw mill, contrary 
to the promise of said James Walker, all of which hath been great 
damage to the complainants and others." 

The jury found for the plaintiffs " that a sufficient passage be 
made by the defendants with the expense of time and costs of 
suit." The mill owners in accordance with this verdict made a 
passage way and the herrings resumed their accustomed visits to 
the ponds. 

This is one of the first — perhaps the first of the many contests 
that have been waged over the Taunton Herring in the courts and 
the Legislature of the State. 

In or about 1661 Block Island, or New Shoreham, was bought 
by John Alcock, acting in behalf of sixteen residents of Dor- 
chester, Braintree and neighboring towns. In April, 1661, a 
shallop sailed from Braintree for Block Island. It stopped at 
Taunton, where fifteen of the sixteen purchasers went on board as 
passengers. They were Thomas Terry, Samuel Deering, Simon 
Ray, William Tash, Thormut Rose, William Barker, David Kim- 
ball, William Cahoone, Duncan Williamson, John Rathbone, 
Edward Vorse, Nicholas White, William Billings, Trustaram 
Dodge, John Ackurs. The other purchaser, Thomas Faxon, had 
preceded with the surveyor. Nicholas White probably sold his 
right very soon, as his name does not appear in the first division of 
land made in September, 1661. 



10 PIONEER. 

In 1668 Nicholas White, his son Nicholas and his son-in-law, 
Samuel Hall, were members of a company which purchased a 
large tract of land lying north of Taunton and extending to the 
boundary line between the Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay colo- 
nies. It was called the Taunton North Purchase, and embraced 
the present town of Easton, nearly all of Mansfield and a large 
part of Norton. 

In 1672 Nicholas White, his son Nicholas, and son-in-law, 
Samuel Hall, were among the asssociates who bought a large tract 
of land lying south of Taunton, and comprising the town of 
Dighton and part of Berkley. This was called the Taunton South 
Purchase. 

Nicholas White was not a prominent figure in church, nor 
in public affairs, but an industrious and enterprising citizen, who 
in a quiet way did his full share in converting the forests and 
wild lands into fertile fields and laying the foundations of a city in 
the wilderness. He was an active participant in promoting the 
prosperity of Taunton, and a large owner in its industries. By 
energy, industry and frugality he acquired a large property 
amounting to about £300 cash value as appears from the inven- 
tory of his estate, taken at a time when money was scarce and 
property held at a low valuation. 

He died in 1697 and in 1698 his estate was divided between his 
three sons, Nicholas, John and Joseph and his daughter, Eliza- 
beth. It will be remembered that in 1666 in his petition to the 
General Court he stated that he had "five small children;" 
probably one of the five died early, leaving no issue to inherit 
property. 

Other items relating to him and his transactions appear on the 
records of Dorchester and of Plymouth Colony, but as they 
would not add materially to the interest of the sketch they have 
been omitted. 

It is probable that when Nicholas White moved to Taunton 
he located and lived a few years at or near Scaddings pond, for 
we find in the will of John Dean of Taunton, made in 1660, 
mention of " a parcel of land between Nicholas White's house and 
Mistress Gilbert's farm at Scaddings."

Nicholas 3 White, resided near Cobbler's Corner in the North 
Precinct of Norton (now Mansfield). The house in which he 
lived is now (1901) standing. He was one of the earliest settlers 
in that neighborhood and a leader in all movements for the com- 
fort and welfare of the people. With George Leonard, who had 
also settled in another part of the territory, that is now Norton, 
he led the movement to set off the town of Norton from Taunton. 
He also took a leading part in setting off the North Precinct 
of Norton and establishing a church within its limits. This was 
done in 1731, and in 1737 Rev. Ebenezer White of Brookline, a 
graduate of Harvard in the class of 1733, was ordained as " gospel 
minister of the church in the North Precinct of Norton." Nicholas 
White had been a deacon of the first church in Norton for many 
years, and was the first deacon of the church in the North Precinct. 
He was also one of the selectmen of Norton, a representative to 
the General Court, and conspicuous in all public affairs. A large 
boulder was erected by his descendant, Walter L. White, on the 
farm where he lived, commemorative of his services as a founder 
of the town. His will, dated August 8, 1743, was proved Octo- 
ber 3, 1743. The executors were his sons, Nicholas and Jacob. 
He died September 2, 1743, leaving a large estate. June 2, 1703, 
he married Experience, daughter of Philip and Judith (Whitman) 
King, who died in May, 1752, in the 74th year of her age. Chil- 
dren probably all born within the limits of the present town of 
Mansfield :

established iron works on Two-Mile river about half a mile above 
the first Taunton iron works, established by his grandfather and 
others about one hundred years earlier. Sept. 10, 1761, he sold 
his homestead, with dwelling house, saw mill and grist mill in 
Raynham, to his son Edmund. During the latter part of his life 
he was insane and under the guardianship of Robert Brettun. 
He died in Providence, R. I., in 1770. Children all born in the

Thomas 3 White, resided in Taunton on the northerly side of 
Prospect Hill; died near the end of the year 1730; married Abi- 
gail, daughter of John and Joanna (Thayer) Crossman. She was 
born Oct. 7, 1690, and died Jan. 22, 1767. Sept. 21, 1731, she 
was appointed guardian for their nine children, of whom three, 
Thomas, John and Sarah, were more than 14 years of age. I have 
not been able to find the dates of their births or the order in which 
they were born. John died Jan. 26, 1806, in his 94th year, and 
Abraham died Feb. 20, 1801, aged 84 years. These items are 
taken from their gravestones, and indicate that John was born in 
1712 or 1713, and Abraham in 1717. The probable order of 
birth seems to be as follows : 

93. i. Thomas. 

94. ii. John. 

95. iii. Sarah. 

96. iv. Abraham, b. 1717.

may have been their sons.

Joseph 3 White resided in Taunton, on the Medfield road, near 
Scadding's Pond. A deed to his son, Simeon, shows that he was 
living in Taunton as late as July 12, 1763, but the exact date of 
his death has not been found. He married previous to January 4, 
1716-17, Elizabeth, daughter of Daniel and Annie (Lincoln)

his son Edward, 35 acres of land in the East Precinct of Norton. 
April 14, 1740, Edward White, of Easton, conveyed to Ephraim 
Hayward, of Bridgewater, 35 acres of land in Easton. At Court 
on the 2d Tuesday of June, 1747, Daniel Hayward made oath 
" that he saw Edward White sign the deed ; said Edward hav- 
ing died since that time." In 1725 when the property of his 
father was divided he was described as of Taunton. He may have

LETTER TO LIEUT JOHN CASWELL FROM HIS WIFE. 

My dear husband — 

The thoughts of your absence doth so exceedingly effect my 
lone wounded soul that I want words to express the sorrow I con- 
ceive lest the cruel enemies or the raging seas should swallow up 
my hopes and deprive me of that which next to my immortal soul 
I dearly prize. Oh therefore if any tender pity lodges in that 
precious heart of thine be pleased to allay my fears by sending to 
me a letter, as I have not received one answer of all my letters 
which much distresses me with fears that I am deprived of the joy 
of my heart, the comfort of my life, but I desire to hope for the 
best concerning you and so shall inform you that all our children 
are in good health and nothing afflicts them but your absence 
which I for my part must confess to be very tedious : — 

However, my wishes are that all your undertakings may 
prosper so as to be advantageous for the better and so taking my 
leave at this time in hopes of a more near and dearer conversation 
which will be to my satisfaction and so recommending you to the 
protection of Almighty God and wishing a prosperous expedition 
and your return as soon as possible so I remain, 

Your loving and very affectionate wife 

HANNAH CASWELL

Nathaniel 4 White resided in Taunton, where he died in 1764. In 
the early part of his life his residence was near the Rehoboth road. 
Nov. 15, 1756, he bought from John Adam a house and land 
fronting on the old training field and next to the court house in 
Taunton. Here he kept an inn until his death. Thomas Morey 
of Norton administered on his estate, which was reported insol- 
vent. He married Sarah, daughter of Elnathan and Lydia Thrasher 
of Taunton. The will of Elnathan Thrasher, dated Aug. 6, 1757, 
proved Sept. 14, 1757, mentions wife Lydia, oldest son, Bezaleel, 
daughter Sarah, wife of Nathaniel White, son Elnathan, Jr., son 
Joseph of Middleboro, and children of son Samuel, deceased. After 
his death his widow Sarah maried Sept. 18, 1766, Nehemiah Dean. 
She was his 2d wife. His first wife was Mehitable, daughter of 
John Hall of Taunton. Feb. 24, 1769, Nehemiah Dean and wife 
Sarah conveyed to John Mc Whorter " her right to dwelling house 
and lot of land in Taunton ; also a farm in Taunton, containing 
27 acres, it being the whole right that appertains to said Sarah, 
as her dower or thirds in the real estate that her late husband, 
Nathaniel White, died seized of." 

Children all born in Taunton ; I have been unable to find the 
dates of birth, except that of Prudence, taken from her gravestone : 

389. i. Nathaniel 5, a sergeant in Capt. Silas Cobb's company in 

1775, married Aug. 5, 1762, Mehitable, daughter of 
Thomas and Lydia (Hall) (White) Morey ; b. April 
26, 1737. They probably moved away. 

390. ii. Sarah; died Jan. 21, 1764 ; unmarried. 

391. iii. Prudence, born Sept. 17, 1752. 

392. iv. Zephaniah, born before 1760; he was above 14 in 1774

pany. In 1776 he was in Capt. Oliver Soper's com- 
pany, Col. Joseph Reed's regiment, Continental Line 
of Mass. He probably moved away after the revolu- 
tion or died in the service.

Josiah4 White resided in Norton, died about 1761. Norton 
and Taunton records give the marriage of Josiah White of Nor- 
ton to Elizabeth Smith of Taunton Nov. 13, 1740. At that time 
Josiah 3 White was living, and Josiah 4 was Josiah Jr. A strict 
interpretation of the record would make it apply to the father, 
not the son. But other circumstances lead to the conclusion that 
it was the son who married Elizabeth Smith. Josiah White, Jr., 
and wife, Elizabeth, were admitted to the church in Norton in 
1742. He married, 2d, Nov. 16, 1758, Mary Worsley of Walpole.

ceased, a minor above 14 years of age.

Philip 5 White ; the following sketch was written by his great 
grandson, Rev. Nehemiah White, D. D., of Galesburg, 111. : 

Philip 5 White, Nicholas 4 White, Nicholas 3, Nicholas 2, Nich- 
olas 1. 

Philip 5 White, the progenitor of one of the branches of the 
Nicholas White family in Vermont, was born in Norton, Mass., 
July 28, 1734. Feb. 2, 1758, he was married to Abigail Campbell, 
daughter of Joshua and Abigail (Britton) Campbell. Abigail 
Campbell was born in Raynham, Mass., Sunday, Sept. 13, 1737. 
They were married at Norton, Mass. by Rev. Ebenezer White, 
pastor of the Congregational church at that place. 

At some time between 1759 and 1761 Philip White removed to 
Woodstock, Conn., whence in 1778 he emigrated to the "Hamp- 
shire Grants," as the State of Vermont was then called, and settled 
on a farm in the township of Tinmouth. This farm he had pur- 
chased Jan. 4, 1776, while still a resident of Woodstock. In 1793, 
through the shifting of township boundaries, he became a resident 
of Wallingford. 

Philip White died in Wallingford, Vt., Oct. 16, 1822 ; his wife, 
Abigail, died at Wallingford in 1803 or 1804. It is much to be 
regretted that the date of her death cannot now be ascertained. 
For many weeks she was tenderly cared for by her mother, Abigail 
(Britton) Campbell, who, though nearly ninety years of age, was 
still in possession of much of her former vigor. 



74 THE NICHOLAS WHITE FAMILY. 

Philip White married a second wife, Mrs. Sally Wood, of 
Middletown, Vt., who survived him. 

Physically, intellectually, and morally, Philip White was a man 
of marked characteristics. 

He was of medium stature, and had a compact and firmly knit 
frame. Many stories are told of his agility and wonderful feats of 
strength. One of these possesses more than a passing interest. 
Two men together with a lawyer whom they had retained, met Mr. 
White in the office of the lawyer (probably) to arrange some 
matters of business. Soon aftsr the beginning of negotiations one 
of the party locked the door of the office. Papers were then pre- 
sented to Mr. White for his signature. He refused to sign them ; 
they insisted, and finally coupled their requests with threats of 
bodily injury in case he did not yield to their demands. When 
Mr. White became fully convinced that he must accede to their 
wishes or suffer great bodily injury and perhaps death at their 
hands, he lost no time in coming to a decision. Throwing off his 
coat and cravat, he attacked his adversaries with such vigor that 
in the space of a few minutes, all three were begging for mercy. 
Although Mr. White many times told to his grandchildren the 
story of this encounter with the three men, it seems somewhat 
singular that none of them could remember the nature of the busi- 
ness that called the parties together. It would seem as if no 
trouble could have arisen in connection with any transactions in 
real estate made by Philip White, after his removal to Vermont. 
Only one plausible explanation can, in the opinion of the writer, 
be given, but this explanation seems to bear the marks of probabil- 
ity. It has been stated that Mr. White, while still residing in 
Woodstock, Conn., purchased a farm in Vermont, Jan. 4, 1776. 
He may have intended to go to Vermont in the spring following. 
Early in March, however, he enlisted in the service of the Revolu- 
tion, joining Co. 6th, 11th Reg. Conn. Militia. He served until 
December of the same year, when he returned to Woodstock. It 
is supposed that during the two years before his removal to Ver- 
mont, other parties had taken possession of the farm and sought to 
retain it by methods not unknown at the present day. The men 
in question probably sought to compel Mr. White to give them a 
quit claim deed of the farm. This physical vigor suffered no 
abatement during the whole period of middle life. To a friend 
who asked him at what age he could endure the most hardship, he 
made the somewhat remarkable statement: "I think that when 
between 55 and 60 years of age I could do more work with less 
fatigue than at any other period of my life." 

He was a man of more than average intelligence and as he had 



FIFTH GENERATION. 75 

had considerable experience both in military and in civic life, he 
became a helpful factor in the development of the community in 
which he lived. His educational advantages were of the most 
meager sort, and it is not surprising that he never acquired a 
taste for study, nor that he had little love for books — the Bible 
being the one notable exception. He was, also, a man of indomi- 
table energy and perseverance. Twice he served his country in 
the capacity of a soldier. A few weeks after his marriage he 
joined the forces under Abercrombie destined for the reduction of 
Ticonderoga, and was in the second line of assault composed in 
part of provincials from Massachusetts. The gun (fusil) which he 
carried in this battle and also in the campaign of 1776, is now in 
the possession of the writer, his great-grandson, a resident of 
Galesburg, 111. This gun was made in London in the year 1741 
or 1742. 

In early life Philip White is said to have been of a somewhat 
wild and adventurous disposition. His interest in religion began 
in middle life. His name is not on the records of the Congrega- 
tional church in Woodstock, Conn., where he lived seventeen or 
eighteen years, but it is certain that he was a member of the 
Congregationalist church in Wallingford, Vt., from the time of its 
organization in 1795 to the time of his decease in 1822. He at 
once became a most ardent advocate of the faith he had espoused. 
In theological belief he was a strict Calvinist, and a strenuous 
defender of the characteristic doctrines of the great reformer. 
When in later years he realized that through the preaching of 
Wesley, who sought to "turn all doctrinal truth into instant life," 
the clear cut doctrines of Calvin might suffer, at least, a partial 
eclipse, he regarded the new movement with extreme disfavor. 

We naturally seek for the springs of that influence which leads 
persons of strong and imperious will, to surrender that will to the 
Divine leadership. We cannot fathom the inmost recesses of the 
human heart, but we do know that reflection has often within it a 
strange power of ministration. The source of that influence may 
have been the surviving memories of the awful carnage before the 
ramparts of Ticonderoga ; it may have been the result of medita- 
tion on the tragic death of his first born ; and it may well have 
been due to the tender solicitude and the subduing appeals of a 
loving and saintly wife. True, even after his conversion he did 
not always maintain a spirit of celestial temper, but he did, in 
great measure, repress the wild energies of his nature, he did 
become a God-fearing man, and he made conscience the ruling 
principle in the conduct of life. 

Of the science of politics, Mr. White, doubtless knew little, but, 



76 THE NICHOLAS WHITE FAMILY. 

perhaps no man ever had a clearer intuition of the one absolutely 
essential factor in all enduring corporate life — moral soundness ; and 
his influence must be reckoned among the constructive agencies in 
the development of the community in which he had cast his lot on 
the then frontier of civilization. 

Though for many years somewhat troubled with a rheumatic 
affliction, he may be said to have enjoyed almost uninterrupted 
good health during a long life of more than eighty-eight years. In 
the spring of 1822, he began visibly to fail. When the end drew 
near he called to his bedside his grandson, Justin, who had taken 
much care of him during his illness, and addressed to him a few 
tender words, telling him that before the setting of the morrow's 
sun, his spirit would be mingled with other spirits good or bad. 

The next morning, when Justin (the father of the writer), went 
to the sickroom, his grandfather looked up and said : "Justin, my 
son, I am still alive." These were his last words. Justin took his 
place beside the chair, on the other side of which his older brother 
Alvin, who had also been attentive to him in his illness, was already 
standing. While thus witnessing sufferings which they could do 
nothing to assuage, suddenly his countenance fell, he ceased to 
breathe. The man of indomitable will had bowed to the summons 
of death.

went to Natchez, Miss. His cousin died the follow- 
ing year. Leverett remained for several years and 
returned in 1826 or '27. He died of consumption

wife, a tender and loving mother, one of whom no ill was ever 
spoken. She married in 1780, at Tinmouth, Vt., Capt. William 
Fox, who was born, probably, in Newburg, N. Y., June 28, 1760 ; 
he died Feb. 17, 1822, at Wallingford, Vt. He entered Revolu-

146 THE NICHOLAS WHITE FAMILY. 

790 

Nehemiah6 White resided at Wallingford, Vt. He was highly 
esteemed by the communit}- in which he lived, and was ever ready 
to render assistance to those who needed aid. He was a kind 
husband and father. His manner of speech was quick and decis- 
ive, securing from his children prompt obedience to his expressed 
wishes ; yet that obedience was cheerfully rendered. In his relig- 
ious views he was more liberal than his father. Politically, he 
was an ardent Republican ; while his father was unalterably a 
Federalist. He died of consumption at Wallingford, Vt., Sept. 27, 
1816 (so says the record) ; the date on the tombstone is Sept. 28, 
and this is doubtless correct. He married in the year 1787 Mercy, 
daughter of Thomas Miller of West Springfield, born, probably, in 
West Springfield, Saturday, July 3, 1767. Thomas Miller, her 
father, was born in 1725. Her mother's maiden name was Abigail 
Morgan, sister of Justin Morgan of Randolph, Vt.. She, Mercy 
(Miller) White, died at Wallingford, Vt., Aug. 25, 1839. She was 
a faithful wife, a fond mother and a sincere Christian.

Jacob 6 Deane was a farmer and fruit grower, and in the early 
part of his life a school teacher ; he resided in Mansfield and lived 



FIFTH GENERATION. 149 

to a ripe old age ; he died in Mansfield July 15, 1871. The fol- 
lowing sketch of his life was written a few months previous to his 
death : 

A Few Hours with a Nonagenarian. — Thursday, December 
8th, being the day on which Mr. Jacob Deane, of Mansfield, 
attained the age of 90 years, we traveled a few miles to spend a 
few hours with him on that occasion. Although his hearing is 
dull and his memory of recent occurrences defective, he related 
many reminiscences of the olden time. He lives in the house in 
which he was born, that was built previous to 1728, by Deacon 
Samuel Deane, of Taunton, and given by him, in his will, to his 
son Deacon William, who gave it to his son, Deacon John, who 
was the father of Jacob. He contemplated, when a young man, 
obtaining a college education, but finally sold his Greek and Latin 
books, and, instead of searching for the roots of the languages in 
them, bought of the heirs the Old Homestead and dug out roots 
and rocks there, clearing field after field of brushy dingle and 
"deep tangled wildwood," raising large quantities of hay and grain 
and planting large orchards. He felt that there was a glory in 
the ownership of lands and houses, of cattle and woolly flocks, of 
wide fields and thick growing woods ; even when the ownership 
conveys to the owner only a realization of property in the soil, and 
much more in it when it is written all over with the memories of 
old years, when the glory is the glory of race as well as of power 
and property. He, therefore, took hold of the plough and has not 
looked back from it since. 

At the age of twenty Mr. Deane kept a public district school at 
the house of Captain Zebulon Field in the north part of Taunton. 
This was his first experience in teaching. During the term there 
was a great controversy about removing it ; no place could be 

agreed upon. Gen. L , a prominent and wealthy man, as he 

could not effect the removal, was determined to break up the 
school entirely. He told his son, but three years younger, and 
quite as large as the teacher, when he went to school in the 
morning, if he did not whip the master before he came home he 
would whip him. The scholar for some turbulence was called 
out, he came over the seats and seized young Deane, who very 
quickly placed his antagonist upon his back on the floor, where he 
held him for some time, and told him he should not pound him 
there, but should whip him in a different position. Capt. Field, 
hearing the noise in the school room, looked in, and seeing the 
battle go on about as he thought was right, withdrew. Young 
Deane called two of the largest boys, let his scholar rise from the 
floor, and directed them to hold him in a position, which in ancient 



150 THE NICHOLAS WHITE FAMILY. 

days was considered by mothers the most favorable for the appli- 
cation of the rod to young children, when he laid a few severe 
stripes upon his back with a suitable stick with which he had taken 

care to provide himself. The father, Gen. L , immediately 

prosecuted young Deane, who went to the Green and was tried 
before a justice. Mr. Paddelford defended him without charge, 
and he came off with flying colors, and a universal and enthusiastic 
sentiment in his favor. He returned and kept his term to the end. 
Several persons who were scholars there, some who have since 
died old men, have often spoke to us of this occurence. Rev. Mr. 
Pipon, of whom no one can think but as an apostle of peace, was 
one of the school committee at the time, and immediately after the 
affray, and before the trial, visited young Deane's school, talked 
out boldly before the whole school, approving his government, 
and encouraged him that he would come out right, saying in these 
identical words: "Don't be troubled; I will help you hoe your 
row ; I will hoe the bean hills." 

The succeeding summer young Deane attended the private 
academy of Rev. Calvin Chaddock (or Chadwick) in Rochester, 
Mass. Among the scholars were the present Deacon Eliab 
Byram Dean of Raynham, and Albion K. Paris, afterwards the first 
Governor of Maine. 

Mr. Deane subsequently kept school seven or eight winters in 
Easton, Stoughton and Mansfield. Otis Pierce, preceptor of 
Bristol Academy, between 1816 and 1821, and Deacon Joseph 
Wilbar, the present venerable Registrar of Deeds for Bristol 
County, were his scholars. 

Mr. Deane has always felt great interest in the cause of educa- 
tion and in agriculture. He has attended every exhibition of the 
Bristol County Agricultural Society from its commencement, and 
has obtained many of its premiums, almost always the first on 
apples when he exhibited them. He is also a member of the 
Central Agricultural Society of this county. We have often ap- 
plied to him the maxim : — "Beware of the man of one book." He 
has read thoroughly a few books. 

Some remark was made to him about keeping his coat so closely 
buttoned; he instantly said, somebody has said of some one : 

"An honest man close-buttoned to the chin, 
Broadcloth without and a warm heart within" 

Although this was a mere spark from his memory, it was a very 
perfect representation of himself. 

Here we see an aged pilgrim, the last of his generation, filled 
with the pensive memories of ancient days, standing almost alone 



SIXTH GENERATION. 151 

on the river's brink, looking earnestly towards the country on the 
other side and waiting to go Home. 

" Ninety years ago began 
The life web of the strong old man ; 
Ninety years in sun and shade, 
He his part on earth has played. 

Ninety years time left him still 
The reason clear the vigorous will, 
Kept the heart unchanged and warm, 
Slightly touched the reverend form. 

Ye golden lights of evening shed 
Your benedictions on his head ; 
Breathe gales of evening soft and low, 
And gently lift those locks of snow." 

He married Oct. 19, 1808, Mehitable, daughter of Rev. William 
and Olive (Poole) Reed of Easton.

Samuel 6 Deane graduated at Brown University in 1805; or- 
dained Feb. 14, 1810, and for twenty-four years was pastor of the 
Second Congregational church of Scituate. A writer has said of 
him : " There were not many who were better versed than he in 
the colonial history of Plymouth and Massachusetts. This history 
of Scituate affords evidence of research and talent highly respect- 
able. He was a man of genius, a man of thought, a man of many 
noble qualities." He died Aug. 9, 1834, at South Scituate ; mar- 
ried Sept. 26, 1810, Stella, daughter of Hon. Seth Washburn of 
Raynham.

died in 1832 ; married, 2d, in 1834, Anna Goddard ; married, 3d, 
in 1845, Lydia Buffum. The following notice of Clement O. 
Read is taken from the history of Bristol County (J. W. Lewis & 
Co. 1883) (page 592) : "Clement O. Read, formerly of Attle- 
borough, died at Perth Amboy, N. J. Mr. Read was the son of 
Levi Read, who owned and lived upon the farm now owned by 
H. C. Read. Mr. C. O. Read was the pioneer in the screw busi- 
ness. He started in the business of manufacturing wood screws 
in this town, at the mill known as the Attleborough City Mill, 
with the machinery that he invented. His pecuniary means being 
limited, he associated Rhode Island capitalists with him, and 
removed his works to Providence, at the corner of Howes and 
Charles streets. The difficulty of putting a new article upon the 
market at a price within the reach of the consumer was an obstacle 
that the company could not overcome, and Mr. Read suffered the 
loss of what money he put in the business. But this enterprise 
has since grown, and the screws manufactured by the company 
that grew out of this effort of our worthy and ingenious townsman 
have acquired a world wide reputation. After disposing of his 
interest in his Providence business, Mr. Read removed to New 
Jersey, where he died at the age of 79 years. He was a thorough

mechanic and during his long, exemplary, and useful life was the 
author of a large number of useful pieces of mechanism. He was 
a firm friend of temperance, a kind father, a true citizen and 
friend, and a man whose memory will be reverend and loved by 
all who knew him."

William H. Clifford 6 Read, better known as Henry Clifford Read, 
born, as stated in History of Bristol County, page 591, " May 8, 
1810, in Attleboro, on the place where he now (1882) resides." 
We also quote from the same history the following notice. " Henry 
lived at home until he was 23, received common school advantages, 
taught two terms of school when about 21, became a farmer, and 
also a machinist, which trade he pursued for three years in Worces- 
ter and Providence. ******** 

Mr. Read has been Whig and Republican in political belief; has 
as such been elected selectman and member of the Legislature 
(1875-76). He has been an honored and worthy citizen, stands 
high in the esteem of his townsmen, has discharged all trusts 
placed in his hands conscientiously and well, and is accounted a 
very liberal man, who never turns a deaf ear to suffering or to any 
enterprise for the betterment of humanity, or withholds pecuniary 
aid from any worthy object. Formerly an orthodox Congrega- 
tionalism of later years he has found great solace in its spiritual 
philosophy, and, supported by this faith and the ministrations of a 
loving wife and children, he is passing down, with much of the 
vigor of early manhood, contentedly towards the evening twilight 
of earth, in the rectitude of a life well spent, and ' with malice 
towards none,' leaving the rich legacy of ' a good name, which is 
rather to be chosen than great riches,' to his descendants. He has

a pleasant home, which has been in the family from his grand- 
father's days, comprising in all about two hundred acres of fertile 
land, and which bears the evidence of refined taste. It is worthy 
of special mention that neither Henry C. Read, nor any of his 
father's family ever used tobacco in anv form or liquor of any 
kind." 

About two years after the marriage of his daughter Eunice, he 
moved to Bond county, 111., where he was a farmer for ten years, 
when he returned to the old home, where he has since resided. 
He married, 1st, while working at his trade, Eunice D., daughter 
of Samuel Tylor, a prominent citizen of Attleboro ; he married, 
2d, Jan. 3, 1856, Mrs. Abbie H. Sherman, daughter of Shadrack 
and Nancy (Simmons) Davis of New Bedford.

She first landed in Carson City in 1864, where she 
formed a co-partnership with Miss H. K. Clapp in 
the Sierra Seminary, a private school, and for many 
years the leading institution of learning in Nevada. 
She removed to Reno with Miss Clapp in 1887 and 
has been a resident of this place ever since. She 
was also the mother of the kindergarten system of 
teaching in Nevada. Reno's flourishing kindergar- 
ten is largely due to Miss Babcock's efforts and 
generosity." Her remains were brought East and

inspiration.

All accounts agree in attributing to Aurilla Hyde Douglass, all the 
tender graces of a noble womanhood. She was a faithful wife, a 
loving mother, and a sincere christian. She made the years of her 
earthly life radiant and beautiful by filling them with self-forgetting 
service to her fellowmen. Her devotion to duty, her blameless 
life and christian example remained as a rich legacy to her children. 
These lines were inscribed upon her tombstone in West Rutland, Vt. 

"How blessed is our friend, how bereft of all that would burden her mind, 
How easy her soul that has left this wearisome body behind." 

These sentiments and the expression of them bear a striking 
resemblance to monumental inscriptions of a former age.

Persis7 Swift was a person of strong religious feelings. Out of 
the lowly duties and the scant opportunities of her home life she 
found the materials for the building of a noble christian character. 
She married at Wallingford, Vt., Lyman White and died July 16, 
1833. She was a daughter of Lois 6 White, by her second husband.

John 7 Fox studied medicine under the direction of Dr. Z. 
Hamilton of Wallingford and Dr. Ezekiel Porter of Rutland in- 
structed him in the art of surgery. In 1807 the first Vermont 
Medical Society gave him license to practise medicine. In 1829 
he received the degree of M. D. from Castleton Medical College at 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 273 

Castleton, Vt. Soon after receiving license to practise emdicine 
he settled in Wallingford, Vt., and soon acquired an extensive 
practice, and was frequently called to other parts of the State. 
In a very marked degree he secured the love and esteem of the 
people to whom he ministered. To many of his large clientage he 
was more than the skillful physician, he was also their wise 
counsellor and friend, and in various ways helped many to bear 
burdens that otherwise could not have been borne. It is needless 
to add that his fellow townsmen were always ready to bestore 
upon him any honor within their gift. He was seven times chosen 
to represent the town in the legislature, and three times was elect- 
ed State senator. He died in Wallingford, Vt. June 17, 1853 ; 
married May 12, 1807, Mary, daughter of Elias Crary, Esq., of 
Wallingford, born July 30, 1788 and died Aug. 19, 1876.

children . 

Mr. Martindale, was a successful merchant ; in the 
year 1855 and 1856, he represented the town of 
Wallingford, in the state legislature ; was town clerk 
and treasurer for several years ; was one of the 
trustees of the Rutland Savings Bank ; director of 
the National Bank of Rutland, and of the Merchants 
National Bank in the same place.

1790 

William 7 Fox, early in life, became a merchant and taking Mr. 
J. Hill as partner, under the firm name of Fox & Hill, engaged in 
various branches of business. The business, though at first 
very successful, after a number of years became unremunerative 
and the partnership was dissolved. In 1827 Mr. Fox removed to 
Orleans county, New York, and engaged in farming. In 1841 he 
went with his brother-in-law, John Ives, to Iowa and in 1853 
bought a large tract of land in Des Moines county, and in a few

years it became very valuable. In all his enterprises, except the 
first, he was successful and he accumulated considerable property. 
He much regretted the lack of educational advantages in early life 
and endeavored, not without success, to supply the lack by read- 
ing and observation. His wife was not only a faithful helpmate in 
all domestic relations, but she also, by her council greatly further- 
ed the various enterprises in which her husband was engaged. Of 
her it may be said "she did him good, not evil, all the days of her 
life." He died in Lee county, Iowa, April 7, 1872; married Aug. 
27, 1806, Sarah Ives of Wallingford, Vt., born Dec. 23, 1793 and 
died in Appanoose county, Iowa, Dec. 18, 1876.

1791 

Eleanor 7 Fox was very highly esteemed by all who knew her, 
but by near relatives she is especially remembered as having, for 
many years, been a ministering angel to the many sick of her 
father's household. She survived her husband a number of years 
and died in Granville, N. Y. Aug. 28, 1858. She married about 
the year 1824, Dr. Augustus Mulford, being his third wife. 

Children : 

3503. i. Charles 8 Mulford, b. at Granville, N. Y. about 1826 ; 

he studied with his father, Dr. Augustus Mulford, 
and graduated at the Castleton Medical College. 
Though but twenty-four years of age at the time of 
his death he had already given promise of great 
usefulness in his chosen profession. He married; 
had one child, that died in infancy. 

3504. ii. Fanny Mulford, b. about 1828 in Granville, N. Y.; 

married Bernhardt Gross. They removed to Den- 
ver where they still reside. 

3505. iii. Phcebe Mulford, b. July 5, 1830, in Granville, N. Y. 

She was educated at Elmwood Seminary, Castleton, 
Vt. She became a teacher but subsequently engag- 
ed in the millinery business. She died Dec. 1, 1888.

Fanny 7 Fox was a person of quick and ready wit and exceed- 
ingly apt at repartee. In early life she was a successful teacher. 
She resided in Granville, N. Y., where she died Feb. 26, 1823. 
She married Dr. Augustus Mulford and was his second wife.

Marvin 7 Fox, when young, was in poor health, but after his 
father's death, having partially recovered his health, he purchased 
part of the home farm and remained on it until 1836, when he sold 
his farm and purchased one in East Dorset, Bennington County. 
In 1852, he moved to Illinois, and purchased a large farm in 
Fullersburg, Du Page County. This proved a very profitable 
investment, but it is sad to relate that many of the family died 
during the first few years of their residence in Illinois. Marvin's 
wife Amy died in 1885 ; Marvin died in 1890 ; their married life 
covered the period of sixty-one years. He married Sept., 23, 1823, 
Amy Andrus who was born in Wallingford, Vt., Nov. 5, 1805.

Sophia 7 White ; she was a sincere and devout but unostentatious 
christian. Her's was an unselfish heart-love for the Master, and 
her whole life was a "drawing nigh unto God." Her influence 
was a constant benediction ; she died Sept. 13, 1884, at Whitney's 
Point, N. Y. She married Sept. 15, 1819, at Wallingford, Vt., 
Rev. Nathaniel Pine, who was born May 23, 1795, and died at 
Union Center, N. Y., May 1, 1881. In early life he was a success- 
ful teacher. Later he became a Congregationaiist clergyman ; 
going West, he preached in Albany, Whitside County, Illinois, 
and in Garden Plains. He espoused the cause of temperance 
reform and became one of its earliest and most strenuous advocates. 
His lectures in its behalf covered parts of New York, and Pennsyl- 
vania, and were doubtless, continued as occasion offered during his 
residence in Illinois. For some twenty years before his death he 
was unable to preach by reason of a serious difficulty of the throat.

of character. He was an excellent farmer and the old farm pur- 
chased by his grandfather in 1776, though well tilled by his 
father and grandfather was, under his careful guidance, much 
improved, and became one of the most productive farms in the 
county. For many years his brothers and sisters were wont to 
make visits to the old home-place, and they were sure of a hearty 
welcome under his roof. His many acts of kindness to his brothers 
and sisters were held in loving remembrance. He married Dec. 
29, 1834, in Danby, Vt., Melinda (White) White, his brother 
Philip's widow ; he died at Wallingford, Vt., Dec. 27, 1850 ; his 
wife Melinda, died at Wallingford, Vt., Nov. 5, 1874.

Lucinda 7 White possessed more than ordinary intellectual 
endowment and in her, beauty of person and of character were 
combined. "She did what she could" for her family and for all 
within her reach who needed aid. She left a fragrant memory. 

She married in Feb., 1817, at Wallingford, Vt., Ezek, son of

having been in possession of the White family nearly 99 years. 
He died at Danby, Vt. March 17, 1875 ; married at Clarendon, 
Vt., Lydia, daughter of James and Lydia (Ross) Eddy ; she was 
born at Wallingford, Vt., March 24, 1801, and died at Walling- 
ford Oct. 18, 1869. 
Children: 

3532. i. Nehemiah8, b. Jan. 25, 1835, at Wallingford, Vt. 

3533. ii. Joseph Eddy, b. July 9, 1841, at Wallingford, Vt. ; 

married Adelaide Bromley, April 27 (?), 1868, at 
Danby, Vt. ; she died May 31, 1893, at Dorset, Vt.; 
he died June 12, 1899, at Galesburg, 111. 

1805 

Nehemiah 7 White was a man of more than ordinary intelligence* 
He had an active and logical mind and was said to excel in argu" 
mentation. Prudent and enegetic in his enterprises and most 
efficiently aided by his wife in their promotion, he greatly prospered 
in all his undertakings during the brief period of his business life. 
He died of consumption, July 6, 1835. He married at Wallingford, 
Vt., in the later part of the year 1829, Fanny, daughter of Samuel 
Andrews (sometimes written Andros) of Wallingford, Vt.; she 
was born about 1808. After his death she married as second hus- 
band Heman Morse of Dorset, Vt ; she died Oct. 18, 1881. 

Children : 

3534. i. Jane Janette 8, b. Feb. 18, 1834, at Wallingford, Vt.; 

died March 1, 1836, at Wallingford. 
Two children were born to Nehemiah 7 and Fanny 
(Andrews) White before Jane Janette, but they 
died in infancy. 

1806 

Willard 7 White much resembled his grandfather, Philip 5 
White, physically and intellectually, and in the principal turning 
points of their lives, a striking parallelism may be traced. About 
1821, at the age of fifteen years, he, in company with his brother- 
in-law, moved to western New York, often at that time termed by 
New Englanders, "the far West." Largely freed from the re- 
straints ot home life it is not surprising that, to a degree, he did 
not walk in the ways of his Puritan forefathers. He was not 
unmindful, however, of "the teaching of events." In after years 
when reflecting upon the needs of his family, a singularly deep 
and abiding sense of the grave responsibility with which he was 
charged suddenly possessed him. The values of life, as formerly 
estimated by him, seemed to drop to dust. It was to him as if the 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 279 

heavens had been that he might know what life may become under 
Divine leadership. He soon afterwards joined the Methodist 
church and became an ardent supporter of its doctrines. He pros- 
pered in business and acquired a competence, and, what is better 
still, won the respect and esteem of his fellow men. He married 
at Collins, Erie County, N. Y. Nov. 25, 1827, Mary Coxe. He 
djecl July 16, 1882, at Springville, N. Y. His wife was born Feb. 
7, 1808, in Erie County, N. Y. and died Nov. 21, 1891, at Spring- 
ville, N. Y. She was an earnest christian, a devoted wife and 
mother, and was honored and beloved by all who knew her. 

Children : 
3535. i. Cynthia, 8, b. Aug. 30, 1828. 
8536. ii. Lorenda M. b. Oct. 8, 1830.

3538. iv. Lucy Jane, b. March 1837 ; married Ezek Lorenzo 

Cook, at Springville, N. Y. No children. 

1807 

Orsamus 7 White possessed a quick and active mind, but his 
power of achievement was to a degree limited by ill health. For 
nearly forty years, preceding his death, he was subject to severe 
and repeated attacks of asthma. His wife, Eleuthera Sumner, 
was a woman in whom physical force and intellectual energy were 
in a marked degree combined. She was a helpmate indeed. He 
married in the winter of 1833-4, at Tinmouth, Eleuthera Sumner; 
she was born May 3, 1813, at Middlebury, Vt; died Feb. 28, 
1884, at Huntington, Vt. ; he died Nov. 29, 1878, at Huntington, 
Vt. 

Children : 

3539. i. Philip 8, b. in 1836, at Wallingford, Vt. ; died Dec. 

25, 1858, at Huntington, Vt; unmarried. He was a 
young man of excellent character and high and 
worthy aims respecting his future life work. 

3540. ii. Frances Malona, b. at Wallingford, Vt. July 27, 1838 ; 

married Nehemiah White, her cousin, May 11, 1858, 
at South Woodstock, Vt. ; she died April 29, 1864, 
at Wallingford, Vt. 

3541. iii. Alvin D., b. Feb. 2, 1842, at Huntington, Vt. ; mar- 

ried xMartha Eddy March 11, 1862 ; she died Jan. 30, 
1894, at Huntington, Vt. ; he died Feb. 22, 1896, at 
Huntington, Vt. Alvin D. White was an honest, 
prudent and industrious man. He was, also, ener- 
getic and persevering in all his undertakings and 
being most efficiently aided in his enterprises by his

excellent wife, whose business aptitudes were not 
inferior to his own, he became a successful farmer 
and acquired a compete nc}'. Both were highly 
esteemed in the community in which they resided. 
He was a veteran of the war of the rebellion, having 
enlisted Sept. 10, 1862. He participated in the 
battle of Gettysburg. He was a brave soldier as 
well as a good citizen. No children. 

3542. iv. Roderick Sumner, b. Sept. 4, 1843 at Huntington, Vt. 

3543. v. Jennie S., b. April 4, 1846, at Huntington, Vt. ; mar- 

ried John Towers of Richmond, Vt., in the winter 
of 1872; she died June 7, 1879, at Richmond, Vt. 
Soon after her marriage Mrs. Towers went with her 
husband to Louisiana. Their residence was in New 
Orleans. During the several years of Mr. Towers' 
sojourn in that State he was actively engaged in 
business in which he was quite successful. The 
climate, however, affected Mrs. Towers unfavorably ; 
she became an invalid and returned to her native 
State. In the pure and bracing atmosphere of the 
Green Mountains she improved in health and regain- 
ed much of her former vigor. Before her health 
and strength were fully restored she rejoined her 
husband in New Orleans. Soon her health began 
rapidly to fail, but when she again returned to the 
North in hope of release from suffering, the disease 
was too deeply seated for human skill to remove. 
After a long and painful illness of several years 
duration, she died, deeply mourned, not only by 
husband and relatives, but, also, by a large circle of 
friends and acquaintances who knew her and loved 
her for the many excellent traits of character which 
she possessed. At her marriage to the man of her 
choice her prospects for future usefulness were 
indeed bright; how soon, alas, did the shadows fall 
upon their threshold ! Her memory is cherished. 
No children. 

3544. vi. Ella Belle, b. July 9, 1853, at Huntington, Vt. ; mar- 

ried Buel C. Andrews, Feb. 28, 1876 ; he was born 
Aug. 7, 1852, at Huntington, Vt. When quite 
young Mr. Andrews began the study of law and, in 
due time, was admitted to the bar. Several years 
subsequently he moved to Albany, New York, and 
continued the practice of his chosen profession in the 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 281 

capital city of the Empire State. The fact that, 
through persevering effort and strict attention to 
business, he has built up a lucrative practice, and, at 
the same time, won the confidence and esteem of 
the people, is ample evidence of his ability as a 
lawyer, and of his worth > as a citizen. The young 
man who, in a large city, without influential friends 
or other outside aids, essays to make for himself a 
place and name in the learned professions, will find 
that he has undertaken a task beset by many and 
grave difficulties. Too often he will find that the 
path to success leads over "the Bridge of Sighs." 
That Mr. Andrews has found the way less thorny 
than many, is doubtless due, in a degree, to the 
intense interest which Mrs. Andrews has taken 
in the work in which he is engaged and to those 
influencesoof the home life which, though real and 
efficient, rarely make known the sources of their 
power under ordinary forms of speech. They have 
no children.

The following notice of him was printed in the Bristol County 
Republican of Taunton. 

"Elijah Franklin White died at his home in Edgewood, Providence, on Mon- 
day, Oct. 3, 1898. Mr. White, "Frank," as he was universally called amongst the 
trade, was born in East Taunton, Dec. 15. 1833. Receiving a common school 
education, he, at an early age, was engaged in the express business. He enlisted 
in Co. C, 7th Rhode Island Regiment, Sept. 4, 1862, and was mustered out 
June 9, 1865. During most of this time he served as orderly on the medical 
staff or in the same position on the staff of Gen. Burnside, and was present at 
Fredericksburg, Vicksburg, and Petersburg. After leaving the army he worked 
for the Union Horse Shoe Works and then entered the employ of Henry 
Armington, an old hardware merchant of Providence. In February, 1872, Mr. 
White went to Europe in the employ of the Sprague Mowing Machine Co., and 
on the discontinuance of that concern he entered the employ of D. M. Osborn 
& Co. in Paris, where he remained for ten years. During this time he exploited 
their mowers and reapers in nearly every country in Europe. Soon after his 
return to this country, in 1886, he entered the employ of the Rhode Island 
Horse Shoe Company, as travelling man, and in their service has travelled over 
the whole country, although for the last few years his territory has been more 
particularly in the Middle States and the South. His wide travel and keen 
observation made him many friends and his kind heart and sterling integrity 
are known wherever he has been. While in Paris he married a German lady, 
Miss Leonora Stelling, who, with one son, survives him. His funeral was held 
on Thursday and the large number in attendance attested the esteem in which 
he was held by his friends and neighbors." 

He married in Paris, France, Leonora Stelling, had one child :
