THE OXFORD DESCENDENTS 



OF 



GREGORY STONE 



OF 



Cambridge. Massa chusetts 



By GEORGE E. STONE 



AMHERST, MASS. 

1904 



Among the early English families that came to Oxford, Mass. after 
its abandonment by the Huguenots, was Uriah Stone, of Framing- 
ham, a descendent of Gregory, of Cambridge, and John, Daniel, and 
John, of Framingham. 

About 1 76 1, or 16 years later, Hezekiah, his cousin (once removed) 
came to Oxford with his family and settled. These two ancestors 
have furnished many descendents, both dead and living, which have 
become scattered over a- wide range of territory, and few, if any, are 
now living in Oxford. 

That the family possess certain tolerably uniform traits is obvious 
to any who possess a large acquaintance with the various branches. 
They have always been large land owners, a trait which would appear 
to be very old and common to, and probably antedating, the original 
Simon and Gregory, of New England. 

Living in an age which required considerable exertion to obtain a 
livelihood, it was to be expected that many of our ancestors were 
extremely practical and hard headed, and occasionally we find those 
today who have little interest outside of the present, or in anything 
other than a limited daily routine confined to a restricted horizon. 

Undoubtedly the uniformity of life habits had much to do in bring- 
ing out family characteristics in colonial times. The pursueing of 
similar occupations from generation to generation has a tendency to 
emphasize common traits of character. On the other hand, the con- 
tinual adaptation of individuals to a greater variety of occupations, 
conditions, etc. — a feature which is more common at the present 



At least one other descendent of Gregory Stone was in Oxford at one time. Rev. Isaac, 
of Douglas, and Shrewsbury, a son of Dea. James and Rachel, of Framingham and Shrews- 
bury (Isaac, Joseph, Samuel, Gregory) was there from 1817 until his death which occur- 
red in 1837. He had a son, Luke, who left descendents. Joseph Merriam, son of Joseph, 
of England, married Sarah, daughter of Gregory Stone, of Cambridge, 12 July, 1653. They 
had II children, and a number of the nephews and nieces settled in Oxford, where an impor- 
tant branch of the family was established, A William Stone, of Waltham, settled in 
Oxford in 1775. He married a Mrs. Esther (Gale) Haven, of Watertown, who had a son, 
by first marriage. William left no issue and his step-son, David, took the name of Stonij. 
He left many descendents. We have not been able to trace William's descent, but infer 
that it may be from Simon, of Watertown. We are unable to definitely locate Ambrose 
Stone who came from Sutton to Oxford about 1768, and who left descendents. The family 
tradition is to the effect that he was a cousin of Uriah : probably, however, more or less 
removed. For various reasons we are led to believe that he was a desendent of Gregory.

time — renders individuality more plastic, less conservative and pro- 
vincialism less marked, hence disguising and modifying traits that 
otherwise might have become, under other circumstances, more 
pronounced. 

In matters of religion the family early took a prominent and 
rational interest in the approved and prescribed forms of Calvanistic 
CongregationaHsm. 

The family characteristic however, as a whole, is practical and 
logical, rather than sentimental and emotional, and it is not surpris- 
ing, especially in New England where religious and philosophic 
thought is always active, that the family has been to a large extent in 
sympathy, if not always prominent in the so called liberal religious 
movements. Respectable living, education and good literature, by 
the fireside, have had considerable to do with the evolution of relig- 
ious thought in New England families, and the motives which lead to 
the acceptance of new ideas were by no means antagonistic to the 
natural processes of development. Many of the former staunch advo- 
cates c^ Calvinism were subsequently brought into relationship and 
sympathy with religious individualism and idealism, as manifested in 
Unitarianism and to a certain extent with Transcendentalism. 

The elder Uriah and many of his descendents are buried in the 
Oxford Gore cemetery, which is only about one-half mile from the 
Rochdale Station on the Boston & Albany railroad. In some lines 
of Stone descent, there are six generations buried in this cemetery 
which is located in a quiet, secluded spot. The Gore for many years 
was more or less an independent community, belonging to no town- 
ship, though claimed by different ones, but most closely affiliated 
with Oxford. In most cases the records were entered in Oxford, in 
some instances in Leicester, and occasionally in Worcester, while in 
other cases it would appear they were not recorded at all. 

The descendents of Hezekiah became much more scattered at an 
earlier period, hence rendering the process of securing data more 
difficult. This branch appears to have been very prolific, as is 
shown by the numerous large families, and many of them became 
pioneer settlers. They were apparently a strong, hardy, patriotic 
offshoot, not shrinking from the duties of military life, as is evident 
from the numerous officers and soldiers. The descendents of Heze- 
Tciah, through John of Worthington, however, are tolerably well rep- 



IV 

resented. They settled to a large extent in the West, and have 
become eminently successful in various lines. 

It is practically impossible to obtain absolutely correct records in 
every case, inasmuch as town vital records are not always reliable 
and family bibles differ, although they constitute the most authentic 
source of information, with perhaps the exception of records per- 
taining to wills and deeds. 

Family traditions, moreover, cannot always be relied upon. In 
this connection it may be of interest to note that the most common 
tradition existing in the family, pertaining to the original ancestors 
in New England, is that there were three brothers who emigrated 
from England. These being Dea. Simon, Dea. Gregory and Rev. 
Samuel. Another tradition signified that they were Welsh, and it is 
stated elsewhere that Rev. Timothy Stone, a minister in the West of 
England, was the father of Simon, Gregory and Samuel. (Hist, of 
Marlborough, N. H., Page 637.) We know now, however, that 
these and many other similar traditions are unreliable. We have 
obtained the following information from various sources, and^ where 
discrepancies in dates occur we have noted them in many instances. 

Our object has been to locate lines of descent which we hope 
will prove of some value and act as a stimulus for further research, 
inasmuch as time passes by authentic records pertaining to the older 
families are more difficult to obtain. If any inaccuracies in dates, 
etc. be observed we would however be pleased to learn of the same. 

We have not attempted to add extensive notes in regard to the 
life history of individuals, and no significance should be attached to 
those cases which show a paucity of narrative or descriptive mate- 
rial or are entirely lacking in such. 

Places of residences, births, deaths, etc. are in Massachusetts 
when not otherwise designated.

at Oxford. 

Gregory came to New England about 1635. He lived for 
about two years in Watertown where he held grants of land, 
and finally settled in Cambridge near the present location of 
the Botanical Gardens. On May 25, 1636, he and his 
brother, Simon, appeared together and took the freeman's 
oath. In 1638 he was made deacon of the First church of 
Cambridge, of which he was one of the founders. He was 
deacon for 34 years and the last survivor of its original 
members. He was a leading man in the town and colony ; a 
representative in the general assemby; one of the governers 
deputies and a magistrate in the town of Cambridge. His 
large land holdings extended to Lexington, and his orchard 
was celebrated for yielding large quatities of excellent fruit. 

He is buried in the old cemetery near the first Cambridge 
church, where a suitable memorial recently erected by the 
Stone association marks his grave. A copy of his will has 
been published in the New England Historical Geneological 
Register. 

* The English records are taken from "The English Ancestry of Simon and Gregory 
Stone," by William E. Stone, Cambridge, Mass.

bridge. He was an Elder and was on many important com- 
mittees and representativ^e to the general court. He is buried

Uriah moved to Oxford in 1745 and settled in that portion 
formerly designated. County Gore. This track of land origi- 
nally consisted of 10,000 acres and adjoined Charlton, Leices- 
ter and Sturbridge. Part of this track was subsequently 
embodied in the towns of Charlton, Sturbridge and Auburn 
while the remaining portion was made a part of Oxford in 
1838. In 172 1 the Gore land was sold to persons residing 
near Boston, among other purchasers being Anne [Tileston] 
Stone, of Framingham, mother of Uriah, and wife of John''. 
Uriah's mother purchased 300 acres, part of which, now 
designated as the Liberty Lamb place was purchased by 
Uriah from his brother James in 1745, and eventually the 
original 300 acres again came into possession of the family. 
He was engaged in manufacturing potash, running two large 
establishments and transacted considerable business. From 
1752 to 1783 he kept a public house, and was licensed to 
sell tea, coffee, etc. About 1754 he constructed a dam and 
saw mill which was later known as Stone's mill ; the remains 
of the dam being discernable at the present day. In 1756 
and 1757 he was clerk of a company that saw service in the 
French and Indian war, and, with other public spirited citi- 
zens, he contributed money to carry on the Revolutionary 
war. In 1769 he and his son. in-law, William Cambell, bought 
the Eliott mills which they sold to John Stone, Uriah's son, 
in 177 1. He was one of the largest tax-payers in Oxford 



and a prominent stockholder in the land bank scheme which 
was popular in many localities at that time, but subsequently 
considered by many an injudicious undertaking.

They lived in Oxford, and Putney and Castleton, Vt. He 
was an energetic business man, and was captain of a com- 
pany in the Revolutionary war. After his death his widow 
removed to Lanesboro, Mass. His father, the Rev. John 
Cambell of Oxford, was a man of marked ability and was 
believed to have been a political refugee, and relative of Lord 
Louden.

In 1772 Uriah, Jr., purchased and settled the eastern por- 
tion of the estate formerly owned by his grandmother Anne, 
He kept a tavern as did his father, Uriah. In 1793 his 
house, which was new, took fire and was probably destroyed. 
Three of his children married into one family. Col. Eben 
and Isaac Gage were brothers of Mehetable Gage. ,

Little is known about John and his descendents, the fol- 
lowing data being obtained from the Chesterfield cemetery, 
church and town records. He and two children, Laura and 
Betsy, are buried in the Chesterfield cemetery. Betsy's birth 



however, is not given in the town records, neither is his wife 
buried beside him. An Elizabeth Stone, of Chesterfield, 
probably his widow, married Samuel Warner, of Hadley, 29 
Sept., 1805. He owned the Eliott mills in Oxford from 1771 
to 1778. It is stated that he "bought largely of soldiers' 
claims and became the owner of two townships. There being 
some doubt as to the validity of titles, he compromised with 
the government and accepted 1500 acres on the Genesee 
River, N. Y. at or near the site of Rochester. He had a son 
Samuel in high standing. City Librarian, at Chicago, 111." — 
Hist. Oxford, p. 703. 

His son Samuel died about twenty years ago and is buried 
in Chicago. He had two unmarried daughters.

" He was an energetic, successful, business man, one of 
the leading men of the region, built the large mansion over- 
looking Rochdale ; was largely instrumental in procuring the 
building of the Worcester and New Haven turnpike which 



passed through Rochdale, and which in those days of scarcity 
of money was a great undertaking. He was commissary in 
the U. S. Army in 1775 and in the Saratoga campaign in 
1777, and a warm friend of General Learned." — Hist, of 
Oxford, p. 703-4. 

In 1787 he purchased his father's estate and built, proba- 
bly on the same site where his father lived, a large house 
which is still in existence and in a good state of preservation. 
After his death the homestead was for a time occupied by his 
son, Samuel, and later by his son-in-law. Liberty Lamb, and 
nephews, Elbridge and John Lamb. His son John, who died 
at the age of 25 years, was a promising young man, and was 
in the card business in Leicester. 

His unmarried daughter, Mary Elizabeth Blount Stone, was 
a person of " remarkable endowments," though at times being 
affected with mental aberration. She possessed an acute 
intellect, and was particularly well versed in family history 
and traditions.

Luther succeeded his father Uriah on the homestead and 
built, soon after his marriage in 1800, a large house now in 
existence on the site of the one owned by his father which 
was burned. In company with his Uncle Samuel he built a 
saw and grist mill in 1807 on the old dam utilized by his 
Grandfather Uriah. They operated this together until Sam- 
uel's death in 1820, after which Luther continued the busi- 
ness until October, 1848, when the mill was burned. He then 
built on a new location some distance below on the stream, 
now the location of the mill of E. I. Comins & Co., and con- 
tinued in business until his decease. He was a successful 
man of his day and left an estate valued at $20,000. His 
son Lewis lived on the old homestead until 1884, when it was 
sold and Lewis removed to Sterling. 

The following letters written by Mary Elizabeth Blount 
Stone, and now in the possession of Mrs. Moses Bemis per- 
tain to Luther's family. 

'' Abigail" Smith of Charlton was married to Mr. Bemis of 
Spencer, a descendent of the first settler of said name of 
Bemis in Spencer. Abigail S. Bemis died in one year after 
her marriage ; left a daughter who bore her name, Abigail 
Bemis, of Spencer. Mr. Bemis married again ; second wife 
had a daughter, Jemima." 



" Jemima Bemis died unmarried in Spencer, hence Abigail 
claimed ihe patrimony on both father's and mother's side, 
which became like three thousand dollars (^3,000), when the 
last grandmother died. She received the woman's compli- 
ment of one hundred pounds of lawful money, which enabled 
her to purchase a chaise, square toppt, like unto Col. Samuel 
Denny's and Mr. Jonas Livermore's of Leicester. Miss A. 
Bemis, after the death of her father, became the adopted 
niece of her uncle, Capt. Jesse Smith, of Charlton, East, 
whose wife was Sally Bemis, a kinswoman of said Abigail's 
father." 

Miss Mary E. B. Stone was six years old when Luther and 
Abigail were married, and this is her account of the wedding, 
which she witnessed, written January, i860, 60 years 
afterwards. 

" Mr. Luther Stone, of County Gore, was married to Miss 
A. Bemis on Wednesday in May, one thousand eight hundred 
(1800), by Sylvanus Learned of North Oxford. Col. 
Sylvanus Learned was son of General Learned of same place. 
The groom and bridesmaid were Hezekiah and Sally Stone 
of the same family. They rode horseback, the men wore 
small Nankeen short pants, blue coats and white vests. Miss 
Abigail was dressed in white sprigged muslin ; the bridesmaid 
in plain, shear muslin. Cousin Candace, Uriah and Mary 
Elizabeth B. looked on."

Hezekiah was a tavern keeper and merchant at South 
Leicester, being located on the Stafford Turnpike. The large 
colonial tavern, which he built about 1815, is still maintained 
as a public house. Previous to his marriage he lived many 
years with his Uncle Samuel. He contributed liberally and 
gave the land for the establishment of the Episcopal church 
in Rochdale, with the restriction that it never be alienated 
from the sacred purpose for which it was originally designed. 
This society was the first of this denomination to be estab- 
lished in Worcester Couuty, the church being built in 1824. 

About 1820, he leased the tavern property, and built and 
occupied the homestead later known as the Samuel Firth 
place. About 1831 he re-entered the tavern, remaining there 
until 1833, when he sold the same and returned to the Firth 
homestead, where he lived until his death.

Luther* attended Leicester Academy ; graduated from 
Brown University in 1839 ; the Theological Institute at New- 
ton, in 1842, and was ordained 3 Oct., 1843, ^.t Oxford. 
From Oxford he went to St. Louis to engage in evangelical 
work, and preached in several places where he succeeded in 
establishing many associations and churches. In 1847 ^e 
established The Watchmafi of the Prairies, which he edited 
until 1855. This paper later became The Standard. From 
1847 to 1848 he consented to be pastor of the First Baptist 
church of Chicago, only in the absence of a settled minis- 
ter. He was chaplain in the army and later interested him- 
self in the criminal population in Chicago. He was secre- 
tary of the Trustees of the Theological Seminary in Chicago, 
and in 1864 he declined the presidency of Central University 
at Bella, Iowa. He however raised ^8000 for the institution, 
a large part of which he gave himself. In promoting the 
prosperity of the Chicago Baptists he accomplished a great 
deal. He was considered a man of exceptional executive 
ability and broad culture, and was well-known throughout the 
west.

Harnden, the originator of the express business in this coun- 
try and in Europe. He established offices in Philadelphia, 
etc., and in 1840 was sent to London, Liverpool and Paris to 
• establish offices there. In partnership with others, he owned 
an express line doing business between Albany and New 
York. During the Civil War he was paymaster with title of

mother, Elizabeth (Southworth) Childs, has in his possession 
some pewter plates and platters with the initials R. H. (Ruth 
Howe) on the back, which constitutes part of a set, including 
about 100 pieces, given to Ruth Howe by her father, David, 
of Wayside Inn fame, on her marriage to Hezekiah Stone.

Hannah , d. 8 Aug., 1848, age 82, by whom he had no 

children. 

Dr. William lived at Enfield, where he had a wide and 
extensive practice and was greatly beloved. The births of 
his children, except the two younger, are on the Auburn rec- 
3 



34 

ords. The latter were born at Enfield. Three infants not 
given below are also buried beside him. The marriage of 
one William and Sarah Clarke is given in the Auburn records, 
which undoubtedly is our William, but the accuracy of the 
date is questionable. His son, Dr. Rufus, practised medicine 
at Greenwich, and Dr. William, Jr., at Harvard. An old oil 
portrait representing a kindly and dignified old gentleman is 
now in the possession of his nephew, Henry Stone, of Enfield. 

Children of Dr. William and Sarah (Clarke) Stone :

cester, 27 Oct., 1762 ; d. Worthington, 6 Feb., 1849. 

John was born either at Oxford or Framingham. Temple 
claims Framingham as his birthplace while Daniels states 
that he was probably born at Oxford (now Auburn). His 
father, Jesse, settled in Oxford, on Prospect Hill (now 
Auburn), about 1763, or the year of John's birth. John's 
children are all in Auburn records, and he probably moved 
to Worthington after 1S02, where he lived and died. He was 
a Revolutionary soldier, and in May, 1779, he enlisted for six 
weeks under Col. Dutcher ; for two months, under Col. Jack- 
son in Sept., 1779 ; and in July, 1780, he enlisted for three 
months under Col. Rand.

Isaac, son of Jesse, settled in Auburn. No records have 
been obtained from any one descended from this family. 
What follows is taken from the Auburn cemetery and vital 
records and the family construction is purely hypothetical. 
There are four wives of Isaac Stone buried in the Auburn 
cemetery, but children are recorded to only Lucretia and 
Lydia. A Mrs. Esther, wife of Isaac, d. 23 Aug., 1847, 
age 71, and Abigail, wife of Isaac, d. 2 July, 1859, age 74. 
Probably Isaac was married four times, having children by 
his first two wives.

bus, Ohio, a successful mercantile business, where they built 
a block of stores and became capitalists. They subsequently 
located in New York city and their nephews, Alfred P., 
Dwight, John, Jesse R. and others succeeded them in the mer- 
cantile business at Columbus, Ohio, and eventually all were 
established in this business in separate firms. 

Sumner and his elder brother, Jesse, established a large 
cotton commission business in New York which has been 
successfully carried on for over fifty years. Sumner, Jr., and 
Edwin succeeded them in the cotton commission business. 
They were eminently successful business men, possessing 
broad ideas and a generous and helpful disposition which 
was manifested in a practical manner on many occasions. 
One of the nephews characterized them as follows : " They 
were two noble Christian gentlemen. The first bond of union 
between us was blood relationship, but in later years there 
was the strongest bond of pure friendship. Their nephews 
will always hold their memory in immortal green."

Dwight Stone went to Columbus, Ohio, in 1839, ^^^ ^^^ 
employed as a clerk in his Uncle Jesse and Sumner's estab- 
lishment. [See No's. 26 and 28.] He subsequently became 
interested in the firm and in 1859 established a business for 
' himself. During the Civil War, his business reputation and 
credit was such that Gov. Dennison turned to him for finan- 
cial aid and advice, which he willingly gave for the benefit of 
the state and country. In 1866, he removed to New York 
and became the head of the important cotton brokers firm of 
Stone Parnielee Co. He retired from business in 1876 and 
removed to Worthington, where he died. He owned a large 
cotton plantation in Lousianna, which is now carried on by 
his son Dwight.
