PREFACE. 



The work of compiling a geneological record of the Rath- 
bone (Rathbun) family in America, is done, and this book is 
the result. The book has consumed many years of patient 
and persevering research, during which time the author has 
left no means untried to secure that most important of all 
qualities in a work of this kind — accuracy. That this has 
been attained absolutely in all cases is not claimed, although 
the end aimed at has been always kept in view and made 
paramount. Indeed, correction and verification have been 
the most exacting parts of the work. 

To the many who are born to the name of Rathbone, 
and who have come into the family by marriage, who have 
given me valuable aid in this work, I return sincere thanks. 
To name all such would transcend my limit. It but remains 
for me to express the hope that the record here appended 
will meet the expectations and receive the approval of all to 
whom it mav come.

ORIGIN ANO MEANING OF THE 

FIGURES AND SYMBOLS 

Used in Heraldic Emblazonment. 



The Shield proper is the object upon which the arms are 
unplaced. It may be of any form, with the exception 
that the lozenge or diamond shape is the only form 
which ladies can use, and it is reserved for thera. 

The Crest is a common adjunct to the shield, and consists 
of an object or objects placed above it. 

The Wreath or Torse, made of twisted ribbons of the two 
principal colors of the arms, and upon which the crest 
rests. 

The Helmet, a well-known object, which is placed between 
the shield and the crest, and resting upon the former. 
Many different forms are used, but theone most in use is 
that of an Esquire in profile of steel, with the visor 
closed and turned to the right side of the shield. 

The Mantlings or Lambrequins, a small mantle attached to 
the helmet, generally represented of crimson velvet or 
silk, lined with ermine, more frequently of the colors of 
the arms, and is often cut or torn giving the whole an 
irregular form. 

The Motto or "Cride Guirre," is a word or sentence upon 
a scroll, generally placed below the shield. 

The Fesse indicated the belt of a Knight. 

The Bazants, a kind of money used in the East, indicates 
that some ancestor of the family went on a crusade to 
the Holy Land, was captured and ransomed. 

The Lion is used in the arms as an emblem of courage, 
strength and magnanimity. 

Azure means blue and is an emblem of truth and constancy. 

Gules means red, and is an emblem of bravery. 

Argent is silver, and is an emblem of unscuiled honor. 

Ppr is of the usual or national color.

Brief Historical Notes. 



(Extracts from S. G. Arnold"* Hiftory of the State of 
Rhode hland, Page £&?, Vol. 2.) 

Parly in Feburnary New Providence became again the scene of 
a daring enterprise in which Rhode Island took a leading part. The 
United States Sloop Providence or' twelve guns. Capt. John Rathbone, 
landed a party of thirty men under Lieut. John Feesett. of Newport, 
who. with fifteen men. scaled the walls at night and took the fort 
(.Nassau. Bahama Islands). The remainder of the force, with some 
prisoners who joined them, seized a small island opposite the town. 
They held possession for three days: captured six vessels in the harbor, 
drove of? a British Sloop of war that attempted to enter the port, and 
having spiked the gun. brought away a quantity of military stores 
without the loss of a man. 

Coopers History of the United States Navy says: The Providence 
carried only four pounders and is said to have a crew," of only 50 
men — descent was made with 25 men. who were joined by a few 
American prisoners. les:> than 30 it is >aid. A privateer of 16 guns 
with a crew of nearly 50 lay in the harbor. An attempt of the armed 
populace to overpower him was put down by a menace to burn the 
town. The following day the people assembled in such force as seri- 
ously to threaten the safety of his party, and vessel, and Capt. Rath- 
bone caused the guns of the Fort to be spiked: removed all the am- 
munition and small arms, burned two of his prizes and sailed with the 
remainder without loosing a man. He held the place two entire days. 
Calls himself John Rathbone. 

The command of the Queen of France was now given to Cap- 
tain Rathbone- When the ship sailed on another cruise in company 
with the Ranger and Providence: 2$ guns. Capt. Whipple: the latter 
being the senior officer. In July, this squadron fell in with a large 
fleet of English merchantmen, that wa- conveyed by a ship oi tn° line 
and some smaller crusiers. and succeeded in cutting out several valu- 
able prizes of which eight arrived at Boston. Their estimated varus 
exceeding a million dollars. In the way of pecuniary benefits this was 
the most successful during the war. '"The Queen of France'' was a 
small frigate built at Nantes ('France') on account of Commissioners 
Franklin and Deane. The Queen of France war- surrendered when 
Charleston was taken by the British. [780, Capt. Rathbone was M1 com- 
mand of her.

eral others, who had been officers, or soldiers in the late Rebiilion 
convicted of high treason at the "Old Baily" in conspiracy to take 
the tower, under the General, susprise the guards, and t-'rt the city: 
all of which was to have been executed on the 3d of September, a day 
deemed lucky to the faction; and, however, the rest of the plot mis- 
carried, that part relating to the firing of the city was unhappily put 
in execution by their brethren, the Fanatics, and then thrown upon the 
Papists. Rathbone and the other prisoners were executed at Lyburn,

RICHARD 1 RATHBOXE, the first of the name in Amer-

the King' of Great Britain in regard to the writ of quo war- 
ranto, acknowledging full and free submission and resigna- 
tion of the powers given in the charter, and asking to be dis- 
charged from all liens and contributions which the Assemblv 
would impose upon them in sending an agent to England, to 
which action the petitioners were opposed. In 1688 he was 
a member of the Grand Turv of Rhode Island. 

In the year 1689. in the month of July, John Rathbone ha f ! 
a very narrow escape from the French, who were then pil- 
laging Block Island. The marauders made inquiries of some 
or the inhabitants as to who would be most likely to have 
money, and were told that Mr. Rathbone was among those 
who were in good circumstances. The French proceeded to 
capture him. as they supposed, and to demand of him his 
money. The captive denied having any but a trifling sum: 
whereupon they endeavored to make him confess that he had 
more. and. by tying him and whipping him barbarously, 
hoped to compel him to accede to their demands. While tho 
poor captive, who had been mistaken for the wealthy John 
Rathbone. was being thus roughly treated, the latter suc- 
ceeded in making his escape with his treasure. 

John and Margaret Rathbone deeded to their son John. 
" for love, all our messuage and mansion at Block island." 
with the proviso that if lie died without issue the estate was 
to revert to the father. By deed made Dec. 28, 16S5. they 
also conveyed certain property to thei rdaughter Sarah, wife 
of Samuel George. By the terms of his will, proved Oct. 6, 
1702. and of which his wife Margaret was executrix, John 
Rathbone disposed of his real and personal estate in the fol- 
lowing manner: To his son Samuel he devised a table and 
cupboard, and to his wife all other movables — viz.. chairs, 
chattels, household goods, sheep cattle, horse kind — and the 
income of a house in Newport for life, at her death the New- 
port house to go to the grandson John, son of John, and ro 
the grandson, son of William, the latter to have the east side 
of the house. To his wife he also devised certain land, and 
stipulated, that 40 shillings should be paid her yearly while a 
widow by each of the sons John. William. Joseph and Sam- 
uel, lie also gave to her a negro man. who at her death wa-3 
to go to the son Thomas for three years, after which he was 
to be free. On the death of his wife the household goods 
were directed to be divided among three granddai-ghters.

that time to be divided among the five sons, each of whom 
was also to have an equal interest in £86.1 i.S. The live stock 
at the time of making the will consisted of six three-year-old 
cattle, two working cattle, two cows, one yearling. 50 head 
of sheep, and 20 lambs; while at the Newport house there 
were beds, pewter plates, wearing' apparel, a Bible, a <nui. 
etc., and £15.18 in money.

1734. To each of his <<>ns Thomas and Samuel he be- 
queathed a farm of 30 acres and one negro girl, while to his 
son John he made a similar bequest and in addition gave to 
him a negro boy. Following is an inventory of his person- 
alty at the time of his death: Four oxen, nine cows, six two- 
yearling cattle, eight calves. 180 sheep, 30 lambs, seven 
swine, one horse, one mare, one silver tankard, out large and

sinicted the immense stone vault in the Jewett City Sav- 
ings Bank building. In 1836 he went west with a little 
money in his pocket, with a view to buving land in the en- 
virons of the then hamlet of Chicago, but the situation of 
the village in a miasmatic swamp discouraged him. and he 
returned home with his money. Propeity that he could then 
have bought and paid for. and now located in the heart of 
the city, would to-day be worth more than Si 00.000.000. 
Thirtv-hve vears ago he went into business in Boston; ten 
years later he again went to Chicago v-.nd opened a trade 
with the east, buying there and selling in Chicago, and 
sometimes in Europe. He accumulated a fortune, much of 
which he contributed to benevolent objects. When he first 
went to Chicago. 25 years ago. he. with others, started a 
Sundav-school in a beer saloon, which in the course of time 
increased to between 400 and 500 members, and was the 
foundation for a church which is now among the most flour- 
ishing in the city. He was a teacher in the Sunday-school 
from its organization until his death, and class after class 
under his care was converted and went out into the world 
to take up Christian work. His life shows what a man of 
ordinary education can do who has one supreme end. and in 
his own way works for it. He had no children.

•' Justin J. Gates died at his home on Laurel street. Hartford. 
Conn., after a short illness of typhoid fever. He was a business nun 
of unusual ability. At the ape of 12 he came to Hartford to live with 
his uncle, the fate Robert E. Day. and entered the Hartford High 
School. Upon the organization of the Mather Electric Co.. 
Mr. Gates was employed as bookkeeper, and later- became pur- 
chasing agent for the comoanv. At that time the Mather company 
controlled patents on the Perkins incandescent lamp. The lamp de- 
partment, however, was not profitable when run in connection with, the 
Mather company Through Mr. Gates' efforts the Perkins Electric 
Lamp Company was organized. with" stockholders marly identical 



RATHBQXE GENEALOGY. 53 



with those of the Mather company. In a short time 125 men were 
employed, and the company did a very profitable business. Mr. Gates 
was its manager from the start, and much of its success was due to 
iiis executive ability and untiring energy. The company soon became 
a formidable rival to the General Electric Company, who sought to 
remove its dangerous competitor by attacking its patents in the courts. 
The Perkins company, combining with others, contested the case until, 
after a struggle lasting more than a year, the Supreme Court sustained 
the Edison patents and closed all the other factories, the Perkins among 
them, Jan. 1, 1893. Mr. Gates was not disheartened. He co-operated with 
John Waring, electrician for the Perkins company, in developing a no- 
vacuum lamp which was believed by many patent experts to be free 
from infringement on the Edison patents. When the Edison patents 
expired, late in 1894. C. G. Perkins, the inventor of the Perkins lamp. 
who was already engaged in the manufacture of electric switches at 
Hartford under the name of the Perkins' Electric Swith Manuafcturing 
Company, started the erection of the large factory on Woodbine street. 
On its completion, early in 1895. Mr. Gates was installed as general 
iranager, a position which he held until two months before his death. 
After his resignation, he engaged in jobbing a large lot of lamps he 
bought on speculation from the Waring Electric Company. In this 
venture he had been very successful, and was making plans for the 
manufacture of incandescent lamps on his own account, and had se- 
cured factory facilities nn Pearl street. Hartford. 

*' Mr. Gates had many warm friends- One of his most prominent 
characteristic was his affability. Xo matter what reverses lie met. he 
was never discouraged. He was always cheerful and hopeful. His 
genial disposition endeared him to all with whom he came in contact, 
.whether as employer or as business associate. He was a member o'_ 
the Veteran City Grand Battalion: of Lafayette Lodge of Masons; of 
Manchester Lodge. Ancient Order of United Workmen, and of the 
Royal Society of Good Fellows of Massachusetts."

[OH.V RATHBONE ( j« >hu :: . John-. Richard 1 ), born in 
Roxbury. Mass., about 1058. He was twice married, but 
the name of his first wire, to whom he was united June 20.. 
1680. we have been unable to learn from the records. Nov. 
LI, 1686 (one account gives the year as 1688). he married 
Ann Dodge, whose father settled on Block Island in 1662, 
was admitted a freeman of Rhode Island in 1064. and died 
in 1723. John Rathbone was made a freeman of Rhode Is- 
land May 1. 1696. and on Oct. 13th of the same year was ap- 
pointed a depuu to the General Court for New Shoreham. 
He was surveyor of highways in 1676. and deputy from 1681 
to 1684. fust before his marriage he received trom his 
father a deed to 60 acres of land on Block Island, the consid- 
eration being- " one barrel of pork." From some old records 
we learn that Great James and his wife (Indians) bound their 
danghter Betsey to Tohn Rathbone and his wife Ann as an 
indentured servant for the oeriod of 18 years: the considera- 
tion being "' one gallon of rum. one blanket in hand, and five 
years afterwards one gallon of rum yearly thereafter, and if 
she remains hVe vears, the said Rathbone to pay four blank- 
ets, and every third year thereafter." April 28. 1717, he tes- 
tified in relation to the seizure, by a pirate sloop of which 
Paul Grove Williams was the commander, of three men— 
George Mitchell. William Tosh, and Dr. James Sweet — who 
were with him in a boat which at the time of the seizure was 
lying- in the harbor bay. Gov. Cranston wrote Cob Shull in 
regard to the matter, that. " in case the pirate Williams 
should fall into your excellency's hands, the poor men there- 
in mentioned mav secure such favor as justice will allow.''

Stonington. Conn. She was a sister of William Adams, ot 
Albany, N. Y., and a half-sister of Lydia Sparhawk, wife ot 
Samuel Rathbone: her mother, Lydia Brown Adams, after 
the death of her first husband, having married Simeon Spar- 
hawk. Jonathan Rathbone at the age of 16 years joined a 
volunteer militia company organized in his native town to 
go to the relief of New London, Conn., which was then about 
to be attacked by the British under the leadership of the 
traitor Benedict Arnold. The company reached New Lon- 
don the day after the fort was taken. Sept. 7, 1781. and 
found the place in ruins, more than [30 buildings having 
been reduced to ashes. In Mr. Rathbone's account of Uitr 
destruction of New London, written and published in 1S+0. 
he records the 'noble act of a wounded American soldier. 
The English, in order to destroy the fort, had laid a train 
of powder from the river to the magazine in the fort. Still- 
man Hotman, who had been mortally wounded, proposed 
to a wounded companion that they crawl to where the 



HA THBONE GENE A LOO I. 91 

powder was strewn and wet it with their blood. Hotmail 

was found lying dead on the powder which he had saturated. 
with his life's blood in a heroic though futile attempt to 
save the fort. In this same narrative Mr. Rathbone gives 
an account of the massacre of Americans by the English at 
the capture of Fort Groton and Fort Griswold. It was his 
melancholy duty to assist in the burial of his countrymen 
who were the victims of the treachery of Benedict Arnold. 
In 1782 Mr. Rathbone joined the State militia and went to 
Fort Stanwix. at Stamford. Conn., where he remained one 
year. The illness of his father, he says, was sufficient rea- 
son for seeking a discharge, which he received in March, 
1783. We are unable to give tht date of Mr. Rathbone's 
death. His widow, who survived him a dozen years or 
more, died at the home of her son Adams, in Montville, 
Conn., Feb. 18. 1856. She was small in statute, and Dr. 
Julian LaPierre. who was the son of her granddaughter, 
Sarah Rathbone. says he well remembers her as an old lady 
bent in form and wrinkled in face. Children;

Indians, the Senecas and Sandusky tribes then roamed 
through the woods at will. With many of them Lucius used 
to hunt and became firm friends. They both loved arid 
feared him. An incident is related by Lucius' wife, where 
he administered a lesson the Indians did not forget. Ft 
seems a drunken Indian called at the house of Lucius when 
he was absent in the field. Pie wanted, whisky, the wife re- 
fused to let him have any: he at once becauie abusive, she- 
went to the door and called her husband and as he reached 
the bars the Indian met him. Lucius had an ax helm in 
his hand which he brought down heavily on the Indian's

head, laying him quivering" on the ground. On his recovery 
he was ordered off, which he did. The next clay he came 
back with a basket and wanted some peaches, saying *'Me 
bad Isaac yesterday, today I am good Isaac." They filled 
his basket and he left. The fall or winter after Lucius had 
'been some four miles to a saw mill with saw logs. Return- 
ing home by the Indian trail a cousin of good Isaac and an- 
other Indian stepped into the path in front of him toma- 
hawks and scalping knives drawn. Lucius with his ax on 
his shoulder brought it up with a swing and made for them. 
They turned and fled and after that he was never molested.

Conde, Swits, manufacturer, was born in Oswego County

merchant and manufacturer. 

The first American ancestor. Adam Conde, came from the 
French family founded in the 12th century by Godfrey de 
Conde, from whom descended the Princes of Conde. The 
most illustrious of them was Louis de Bourbon, called the 
Great Conde. Adam Conde, a French Protestant (Hugue- 
not) owing to religious persecution in France, fled to Hol- 
land in the latter part of the 16th century and soon after 
came to America and settled at Schenectady, N. Y. He 
was known as the Chevalier Conde, and in 1724 was high 
constable of Albany; and in 1748 was killed by the Indians 
a few miles from Schenectady, leaving two sons, Adam and

Jesse. The latter was born in 1743 and in 1762 married 
Parthenia Ogden (daughter of Jonathan Ogden) by whom 
he had five sons and two daughters. One of the sons, Al- 
bert, was the father of Henry S. Conde and grandfather of 
Swits Conde. Albert Conde, the grandfather, married 
Hester Toll, eldest daughter of Daniel Toll and Susan 
Swits. Henry S. and Swits Conde take their name 
Susan Swits. ' Henry S. and Swits Conde take their name 
Swits from Henry Swits. brother of Susan Swits of the Hol- 
land family of that name. 

Swits Conde was educated in the public schools of Os- 
wego, graduating at eighteen years of age. In 1863 he 
went to Louisiana, and for the next four years was inter- 
ested in the raising of sugar and cotton upon plantations 
there. He returned to Oswego in 1867 and engaged in the 
manufacture of knit goods. In 1894 this enterprise with its 
several auxiliaries had increased more than tenfold, and 
chiefly through the application of improvements, inventions 
and processes originated by Mr. Conde himself. He has 
altogether taken out some twenty-five different patents, all 
utilized in his own business, and in their results known all 
over the United States. He was the leader in the United 
States in introducing certain grades of knit goods through 
special machinery, etc., and many processes and fabrics or- 
iginating with him were soon adopted by other manufactur- 
ers. His success in business was due to his close study of 
details and the application of his various inventions. In 
1873 Mr. Conde was married to Apama I. Tucker, daughter 
of Churchill and Sarah (Morse) Tucker of Fulton, N. Y., 
and has five children, three sons and two daughters. Mr. 
Conde's factories and summer home are at Oswego, N. Y., 
and his winter home in New York City. He is a member of 
The Union League Club. The Riding Club, Republican 
Club, Chamber of Commerce, The Huguenot Society and 
Wool Club of Xew York City; also the Thousand Island 
Club and several yacht clubs; is much interested in yachting 
and owner of the steam yacht "Ruth."

CHESEBROUGH. 

The first and only person of the name of Chesebrough, 
who with his family emigrated to America, was William 
Chesebrough from England. Boston in Lincolnshire. He ar- 
rived in Xew England with Gov. Winthrop's company of 
settlers. June 12. 1630. on the ship Lady Arabella. He was 
born in England in 1594. His mother is supposed to have 
been Sarah Chesebrough. whose name stands No. 78 on the 
rolls of the First Church of Boston. Mass. She undoubtedly 
came to this country with William in Governor Winthrop's 
company. "In a chronological table of events we find this 
record", 1631, May 18, election day at Boston. Winthrop 
and Dudley are chosen by general consent. At the general 
Court at Boston on the 8th day of May. 1632. the same gov- 
ernor and deputy were elected, and it was then thought ex- 
pedient to pass an order that two men should be chosen 
from each town to confer with the court of assistants about 
raising public stock. This order was the first step towards 
a house of representatives. The delegates were at that time 
deputies or committees and Messrs. William Colbnrn and 
William Chesebrough had the honor to be the first from 
Boston. 

On the Boston records under date of Xov. 10, 1634, we 
find William Chesebrough constable and collector of taxes 
(an office equivalent to high sheriff of the present day), 
of which taxes £30 is ordered to be paid to William Black-

stone for the purchase of him by the town of Boston of all 
the lands situated on Boston Xeck. so called, except about 
six acres reserved by Blackstone for his own use. This pur- 
chase comprised what is now the City of Boston. 

In the laying out of the city and in the settlement of 
boundary disputes the Boston records show that William 
Chesebrough took a leading part. 

Mr. William Chesebrough and Mr. Breutou or any three 
of them. After this Jan. 17, 1640. the consent of Boston 
that Mount Wallaston should become a new town was voted 
in the following words, viz.: 

It was agreed that our brethern of the Mount, viz.: Will- 
iam Chesebrough. Alexander Winchester. Richard Wright. 
James Penniman. Stephen Kinsley and Martin Sanders in 
the name of the estate rent them for whom they undertake. 
that they should give to the town of Boston towards the 
maintainence of the ministry thereof 4 per cent of an acre for 
every two acres of the seven acres formerly granted to the 
University of Boston upon expectation they should have 
continued with us and 3 per cent of an acre of every acre 
that hath been or shall be granted to any others who are not 
inhabitants of Boston. And in consideration hereof, and aft- 
er that the said portions of money shall be paid to the town 
treasury of Boston. All the said land shall be free from any 
town rates or charges, when the mount shall be rated by the 
Court, and not assessed with the town of Boston, and upon 
these terms, if the Court shall think fit to grant them to be 
a town of themselves they shall have libertv to accept there- 
of. 

Feb. lt>, 1640. the petition of the inhabitants of Mount 
Wolaston. was granted them according to the agreement 
with Boston and the town to be called Braintree. 

In Holmes Arnolds' Vol. r, page 310. also in Trumbull's 
History of Connecticut. Vol. 1. Page 233. we find the fol- 
lowing account of the settlement of what is now the town 
of Stonington in Connecticut in the following words: "1658. 
this year, a considerable settlement was made between Mys- 
tic and Paucatuck rivers. This tract was called Pequot and 
originally belonged to Xew London: the first men who set- 
tled upon this point was William Chesebrough from Reho- 
hoth, in 1649. ■ A complaint was exhibited against him for 



RATH BONE GENEALOGY. *>3 

carrying on an illicit trade with the Indians, for repairing 
their arms and endangering the public safety. The General 
Court of Connecticut declared they had a clear title to those 
lands, and summoned him before them, they reprimanded 
him for settling upon them without their approbation, for 
withdrawing himself from Christian society and ordinances, 
and for unlawfully trading with and assisting the Indians. 
He confessed his faults, but pleaded in excuse that he had 
been encouraged by Mr. Winthrop. who claimed a right at 
Paucatuck. He gave bonds for his good conduct and was 
allowed to continue upon the land. The Court promised 
him that if he would procure a sufficient number of planters; 
they would give them all proper encouragement in making 
a permanent settlement, about ten i>r twelve families there- 
fore made settlements in that quarter and finding there was 
a controversy between Connecticut and Massachusetts with 
respect both to title and jurisdiction they on the 30th of June 
entered into a voluntary contract to govern themselves, and 
conduct their affairs in peace until it was determined to 
which colony they should submit. The principal planters 
were George . Thomas Stanton. Thomas Shaw, Wil- 
liam Elisha and Samuel Chesebrough and Moses and Walter 
Palmer: these with some others were signers of the volun- 
tary compact. 

At the meeting of the commissioners of the United Colon- 
ies, the Massachusetts claimed that tract of country 
by virtue of the assistance it afforded Connecticut in the 
conquest of the Pequoits. The commissioners resolved. 
That the determination did arise only from the several rights 
of conquest, which were not generally different; yet that be- 
ing tended of'anv inconvenience of which might arise to 
those who were already possessed either by commissioners 
from Massachusetts or Connecticut in any part thereof, 
should they be put off their improvements, also upon inquiry 
finding that the Pequoit country which extended from Xar- 
hactu to Wilkapaug, about ten miles east of Mystic river, 
may convenient!}' accommodate two plantations did repre- 
senting things as they then stood, concluded that Mystic 
river be the boundary between them as to property and jur- 
isdiction, so far as conquest may give title, always provided, 
that such as are already accommodated by commission of 
either of said governments, or have grants of any part of 



304 HATHBQjSlEGENEAUt&Y. 

land on either side of Mystic River be not molested in any. 
of their possessions or rights by any other grants. 

Upon the petition of the planters, the General Court of 
Massachusetts made them a grant of eight miles from the 
month, of Mystic river toward Wilkapang and eight miles 
northward into the country and named the plantations 
Southerton. It continued under the government of Massa- 
chusetts until after Connecticut obtained a royal charter in 
1662. At the next session of the Legislature of Connecti- 
cut the name of this part was altered from Southerton to 
Stonington.

through the civil war on the staff of General C. Schenck 
and took part in all the battles of the Army of the Potomac. 
After the war— during the period that General Schenck was 
minister to England, he was secretary of legation at the 
Court of St. James. 

COLONEL WILLIAM C. CHESEBROUGH. 
William H. Chesebrough was born in New Yorg City, 
Oct. 16, 1838. His military history is as follows: Departed 
with the 7th Regiment in April. 1861, taking part in the 
march from Annapolis. He was almost immediately appoint- 
ed by President Lincoln as first lieutenant in the nth United 
States, regular infantry and assigned to duty as aide-de-camp 
on the staff of Robert C. Schenck. He was present at both 
battles of Bull Run. his corps being entirely broken up, he- 
reported to General Seigel for duty, and hence was sup- 
posed to be among the missing. Afterwards he served in 
the Sherman campaign under Tremont, also Milroy and 
was highly commended for a reconnoisance made by swim- 
ming the river in face of the enemy midst a shower of rebel 
bullets. He was promoted gradually to be colonel of vol- 
unteers, made adjutant general of the 8th corps, and located 
with headquarters at Baltimore. This was during the last 
year of the war and the difficulty of dealing with the rebel 
element in that city required great skill and decision 
Colonel Chesebrough was never wounded during his four 
years of service: notwithstanding he was in a number of 
battles. Before the close of the war he resigned, and at 
its termination, was appointed secretary of legation at 
London, under General Schenck, with whom he remained 
some two years, and afterward accepted the agency of 
the Chesebrough Manufacturing Company in London, 
which position he still holds (1897). The Chesebroughs 
are direct descendants from noble stock and the blood of 
kings run in heir veins.

a cousin of General Philip Kearny, who died in Paris, 
France, June 2$, 1869, was probably born in 1836; died 
August 21, 1895. He was descended on his mother's side 
from the Livingston family and was a cousin of Nicholas 
William Stuyvesant, who married Augusta another daugh- 
ter of Robert Chesebrough. Pie was also first cousin of 
the celebrated Genehal Phil. Kearny of the Mexican war and 
war of the Rebellion, and was the executor and trustee of 
his will. The New York Life Ins. and Trust Co., of 52 Wall 
street, New York City was organized in 1830 and he soon 
afterwards entered its service and rapidly rose through the 
various grades of office, becoming real estate secretary in 
1845, an d m J 846 secretary, which office was the next to 
president in dignity as there was no vice-president and was 
really the supreme controlling power of the company. He 
was a large owner and operator in New York real estate 
and was regarded as one of the best financiers and ablest 
business men of his time. In resolutions in his memory 
passed by the board of directors of the New York Life Ins. 
and Trust Co.. Aug. 31. 1869. he is mentioned as being for 
36 years an officer of the company and 2 7, years its secre- 
tary and as a man of remarkable virtues and great judgment 
and business talent. He was succeeded in office by his 
brother Joseph R. Kearny, who died Feb. 20, 1893, so that 
for 63 years the history of one of the greatest financial in- 
stitutions in America is coincident with the business careers 
of two brothers as its chief officers. Philip was also one of

400 RATHBONE GENEALOGY. 

Asa Douglas of the fourth generation was born in Plain- 
field, Conn., Dec. n. 171 5 ; married about 1737, Rebecca 
Wheeler: she was born Aug. 26, 1718. He removed from 
Plainfield to Old Canaan about 1746, and remained there 
some twenty years. They had nine children, viz: Asa, Na- 
thaniel. John. William. Bennajah, Wheeler, Rebecca. Olive 
and Lucy; all married and left families except Lucy. In 
1766 he removed with his family to what was at that time 
called Jerico Hollow, Mass., but which was subsequently in- 
cluded in Stephentown. X. Y. His son William had pre- 
ceded him the year before. When Asa came he brought 
with him a company of men who cleared thirty acres of 
land and built a large farm house. The nearest neighbor 
was four miles away, and they were obliged to go fourteen 
miles to the saw mill. The garret of the house, which is still 
(1877) standing in good repair, was used during the Revolu- 
tionary war as a jail, there being at that early time none in 
the country. 

Asa participated in the war and led a company of thirty 
"Silver Greys" at the battle of Bennington on the 16th of 
Aug. 1777, when the force of the British and Indians sent 
to seize the stores collected at that place, were defeated by 
the Americans under Col. John Stark. Asa continued to re- 
side in Stephentown till the time of his death, which oc- 
curred Nov. 12. 1792. His widow survived him fourteen 
years and died June 12. 1809. They had 13 children. 

William 1 , born 16 10: married and had 5 children, died in 
Boston: William 2 , born 1645, had eight children, died in 
New London: William 3 , born in 1672 or 3, had 12 children 
(Dea. William): Asa 4 , born in 1715. had 13 children, died in 
1809; Wheeler 5 , born in 1750, had 10 children, died in 1829; 
Alanson 15 . born in 1779. had 6 children, died in 1856. 

The above is an original record in family bible of Asa 
Douglas and given by Charles H. James Douglas of Provi- 
dence. R. I. William 2 was a colonel in the Revolutionary 
Army. Rev. William K. Douglas is a descendant of Wil- 
liam 3 Douglas. Asa 4 had 13 children, one was Bennajah, 
the grandfather of Stephen A. Douglas (M. C.) The name 
of one of Asa's daughters was Lucy, born in 1762, grand-

403 RATHBONE GENEALOGY. 

Wheeler, a nephew of his mother, he opened a store and tor 
several years continued in the business: the firm name being 
Douglas & Wheeler. About 1798 his property in Albany 
was destroyed by fire and he made a journey to Brantsford, 
Canada, where he remained about a year with Capt. Joseph 
Brant; the famous chief of the six nations of Indians. In 
1799, he removed with his family to Canada and settled on 
the Grand river in the midst of the Indians, where the City 
of Brantford now stands; after a few years he removed about 
eight miles to the west, where he took up a tract of 500 
acres, receiving his lease from Captain Brant, where he 
carved out a home in the wilderness and was able to spend 
his later years in comfort, leaving the homestead to his son 
Stephen VanRenselear. Wheeler and wife were staunch 
Methodists; their house was the home of the early itinerant 
preachers. His son Stephen at the age of 19 brought into 
their home in 1809 the daughter of an old and prominent 
itinerant preacher, she was only 16 years old and for 60 years 
they dispensed the same generous hospitality that had been 
found when the elder ones had control of the family mansion. 
For many years preaching was held in the house and several 
of the children were named after the preachers and their 
wives. Wheeler Douglas died at the home of his daughter 
Harriet in Smithfield in June, 1S29, and his wife Martha at 
the same place, Nov. 28,. 1837, at the age of 84. Wheeler 
Douglas' younger brother Alanson was the grandfather of
