FOREWORD 



THE LAST PUBLICATION OF THIS SOCIETY WAS THE DECENNIAL 
REGISTER OF MAY 8, 1903, AND, LURING THE LAST FOUR YEARS, IT 
WAS NOT THOUGHT BEST, BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS, TO INCUR 
THE EXPENSE OF ANOTHER VOLUME UNTIL AN INCREASED MEMBER- 
SHIP WOULD CONTRIBUTE AN INTEREST TO ITS GENEALOGICAL AND 
HISTORICAL DETAILS. SINCE THE ORGANIZATION OF THIS SOCIETY, 
WE HAVE ADMITTED ONE HUNDRED AND FIVE GENTLEMEN TO MEM- 
BERSHIP, OF WHOM WE HAVE LOST FOURTEEN BY DEATH; FIFTEEN 
BY RESIGNATION AND FOURTEEN DROPPED FROM THE ROLL FOR NON- 
PAYMENT OF DUES; OUR PRESENT MEMBERSHIP BEING SIXTY-TWO. 

THE DEATH OF REV. ALEXANDER MOSS MERWIN, FREDERICK 
HASTINGS RINDGE AND SPENCER ROANE THORPE CAME TO US ALL 
AS A PERSONAL AFFLICTION. THE ASSOCIATION OF MOST OF US WITH 
THESE LOST ONES HAD BEEN SO INTIMATE, THAT WE HAD LEARNED 
TO APPRECIATE THEIR LOVABLE TRAITS, AND THE MEMORIALS 
ADOPTED BY THE SOCIETY, ARE THE UNANIMOUS TESTIMONY OE OUR 
MEMBERS TO THEIR SWEETNESS OF CHARACTER WHICH HAD EN- 
DEARED them: to us all. 

SINCE THE PUBLICATION OFOUR REGISTER OF 1902, OUR LIBRARY 
HAS BEEN INCREASED BY MANY VALUABLE WORKS. WE ARE IN- 
DEBTED TO HON. WILLIAM M. OLIN, SECRETARY OF THE COMMON- 
WEALTH OE MASSACHUSETTS, FOR A SET OF THE OFFICIAL LISTS OF 
MASSACHUSETTS SOLDIERS AND SAILORS OE THE REVOLUTIONARY 
WAR, AND SENATOR FRANK P. FLINT HAS ADDED TO OUR SHELVES, 
GOVERNMENT PUBLICATIONS RICH IN HISTORY RELATING TO THE 
REVOLUTIONARY EPOCH. 

OUR MOST VALUED POSSESSION IS THE LIFE-SIZE PORTRAIT OF 
GEORGE WASHINGTON PEACHY, WHOSE FATHER, BENJAMIN PEACHY, 
FOUGHT IN THE BATTLES OF TRENTON, PRINCETON, ELIZABETHTOWN, 
MONMOUTH, AT THE SIEGE OE YORKTOWN, AND ENDURED THE PRIVA- 
TIONS OE THE ni.TT.KB WINTER AT VALLEY EORGE. IN PRESENTING 
THE SOCIETY WITH THIS RORTRAIT, MR. PEACHY SENT Till-: FOLLOW- 
ING COMMUNICATION: 

"LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, AUGUST 12, 1905. 
TO THE SOCIETY SONS OF TILE REVOLUTION, 

IN THE STATE OF UAL1FORNJA, 
GENTLEMEN: 

ABOUT THE YEAR 1887, AN OIL PORTRAIT OF MYSELF WAS PAINTED 
BY THE ARTIST JENKS, AND IT IS CONSIDERED AN EXCELLENT LIKE- 
NESS OE ME, BY ALL OE MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. 

1 AM NOT AWARE THAT THERE IS NOW LIVING A SON OE A SOL- 
DIER OE Till-: [{EVOLUTION, OTHER THAN MYSELF, CONNECTED WITH 



ANY STATE SOCIETY, AND MY VERY GREAT REGARD FOR THE MEM- 
BEES OF OUR SOCIETY, AND MOST HEARTY ENDORSEMENT OF ALL OF 
THE PRINCIPLES OF OUR ORDER, INDUCE ME TO BELIEVE THAT THIS 
PORTRAIT WILL BE A POSSESSION VALUED BY YOU. 

WITH THE FULL CONCURRENCE OF MY WIFE, WHO INDICATES HER 
ASSENT HEREON, I HEREBY PRESENT TINS PORTRAIT TO THE SOCIETY. 

GEO. W. PEACHY, SR. 
I CORDIALLY CONSENT TO THIS GIFT. 
MRS. F. A. PEACHY." 

BORN MAY 18, 1829, MR. PEACHY CARRIES HIS SEVENTY-EIGHT 
YEARS WITH VIGOR AND CHEERFUL RECOLLECTIONS OF THE HAPPY 
YESTERDAYS. 

AT OUR LAST ANNUAL DINNER, FEBRUARY 8, 1907, MR. PEACHY 
WAS OUR HONORED GUEST, AND HIS CORDIAL GREETINGS AND 
HEARTY WISHES FOR THE PERSONAL WELFARE OF OUR MEMBERS, 
AND THE PROSPERITY OF THE SOCIETY IN WHICH HE TAKES SO GREAT 
AN INTEREST, WTLL ALWAYS BE A PLEASANT RECOLLECTION TO THE 
GENTLEMEN WHO WERE SO FORTUNATE IN MEETING HIM. 

THE MATERIAL GROWTH OF THE SOCIETY, AND THE EVIDENT 
NECESSITY FOR QUARTERS LARGER THAN THE PRESENT SOCIETY 
I HALL, WHICH HAS BECOME CONGESTED WITH OUR GROWING LIBRARY 

.AND THE NECESSARY APPLIANCES, INDUCED THE THOUGHT THAT 
THE TIME IS RIPE FOR THE ATTEMPT TO PURCHASE A LOT AND ERECT 
A SOCIETY BUILDING, AND AT THE DINNER OF FEBRUARY 8, 1907, THE 
PRESIDENT WAS INSTRUCTED TO APPOINT A COMMITTEE TO SOLICIT 
SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR THIS PURPOSE. 

THAT COMMITTEE HAS BEEN APFOLNTED, AND I AM GRATIFIED 
TO BE ABLE TO STATE THAT SEVERAL GENTLEMEN HAVE INTIMATED 
THEIR WILLINGNESS TO CONTRIBUTE LIBERALLY FOR THE CONSUM- 
MATION OF THIS OBJECT. 

WE CANNOT EXPECT, AT THIS TIME, TO RIVAL THE MAGNIFICENT 
ACHIEVEMENTS OF NEW YORK, CONNECTICUT, AND PENNSYLVANIA 
IN THIS REGARD, BUT WE MAY HOPE THAT BY CONCERTED EFFORT, 
AND PERHAPS BY A LITTLE PERSONAL SACRIFICE, WE MAY, AT AN 
EARLY DAY SEE OUR SPLENDID LIBRARY, PICTURES AND SOUVENIRS 
HOUSED UNDER OUR OWN ROOF-TREE AND SAFELY PRESERVED FOR 
THE GENERATION WHICH SHALL CARRY ON THE WORK OF THIS 
SOCIETY.

Alexander Moss Merwin 

i 

Born September 3, 1839, in Norwalk, Connecticut. 
1 Died February 2, 1905, in Pasadena, California. 



Descended in the seventh generation from Governor Joseph Treat of 
Connecticut, and in the fourth generation from Joseph Piatt Cooke, Col- 
onel of the Sixteenth Regiment of Connecticut troops in the War of the 
Revolution, Alexander Moss Merwin, from his early youth until he 
passed to the eternal hereafter, was identified with the best thought for 
the conservation of an honest and enlightened government in the civil 
and religious affairs of a people whose independence his ancestors had 
helped to achieve, and his name ranks high in the roll of the leading 
Captains of the Church Militant. 

Motherless at three years of age, until his tenth year his home was 
with relatives in New Haven and New York. Entering Williams College, 
he was graduated in 1863 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, and the 
same year he matriculated in Princeton Theological Seminary, from which 
in 1866 he received the degree of Bachelor of Divinity. In subsequent 
years the degree of Master of Arts was conferred upon him by Williams 
and Yale Colleges. 

In his early years he was connected with the American [Sunday School 
Union and the Bible Society, and during the War of the Rebellion he 
was Acting Chaplain at the hospitals of Alexandria and Fortress Monroe 
and agent in the Shenandoah Valley, of the Sanitary and Christian Com- 
missions. 

Under the auspices of the Presbyterian Board, he went to Chile as a 
missionary, where, under his supervision, was organized the first Protes- 
tant Chilean Church in that republic, at Santiago, and he was the first 
pastor of Chilean Protestants at Valparaiso, lie remained in Chile nine- 
teen years, carrying on the work of pastor, editor and superintendent of 
schools until 1885, when he returned to the United States. 

In 1886 he came to Southern California, from which period until his 
death he was engaged in missionary labors for the Mexicans, and through 
his efforts, Presbyterian congregations were organized, and church edifices 



erected at Los Angeles, San Gabriel, Alhambra, South Pasadena, Lamanda 
Park and Azusa, and a Girl's Home and School was established and 
placed upon an enduring - basis in Los Angeles. 

Elected a member of the California Society Sons of the Revolution in 
May, 1894, his name was borne upon its rolls to the time of his death as 
one of the most zealous advocates of its institution. 

A charter member of the California Society of Colonial Wars, he was 
chosen its Chaplain and retained in that office at every annual election. 

In the affectionate intercourse of our members he became endeared to us 
all, and we mourn with his afflicted family, the loss of this gentle Chris- 
tian, who will not be forgotten.

Frederick Hastings Rindge 

Born December 21, 1857, in Cambridge, Massachusetts 
Died August 29, 1905, in Yreka, California 



A trustee of great wealth, and inheriting the blood of ancestors distin- 
guished in both the Colonial era and that great Revolution against the 
despotism of England, Frederick Hastings Rindge has departed from us, 
leaving as his richest legacy a bright record on the pages of his time 
among those whose lives have been devoted to the maintenance of good 
government, the integrity of a nation founded upon eternal principles of 
liberty and justice and the establishment and perpetuity of secular and 
religious institutions devoted to the training of those to whom shall fall 
the guardianship of the welfare of this land. 

Educated at Harvard University, from which he received the degree 
of Bachelor of Arts, his studies did not cease with the close of his college 
career, and his intellectual activities ended only with his life. He achieved 
a recognized position in the scientific walks of Ethnology and Archaeology, 
as well as in the lighter and more popular fields of literature, and he gave 
us a most pleasing, graphic and instructive description of the life as we 
live it on the Pacific Coast, in his "Happy Days in Southern California." 
With the strongest attachment for the place of his nativity, he acquired for 
his new home in this land, a love and enthusiasm, which, in a great 
measure, became factors in the direction of his later years. 

The complete story of his private benefactions and sympathetic chari- 
ties to the suffering and needy will never be known this side the gates of 
Paradise, but his munificent gifts to Cambridge, and his establishment 
and endowment of educational, charitable and religious institutions will 
remain for all time a part of the history of the cities of his nativity 
and adoption. With reverential gratitude for the sacrifices made by his 
ancestors in the winning of this land, and pride in their valor which 
helped to achieve its independence and found a government which he 
believed the happiest upon earth, he sought admission to the Societies of 
Colonial Wars and Sons of the Revolution, that his children and his 



children's children might read therein the record of those whose blood 
they inherited. 

His interest in this Society was unfailing in all its proceedings, and he 
gave his adherence and firm support to all the principles of our Order. 

The loss of such a citizen cannot but be felt and mourned throughout 
the entire scenes of his activities, and as a testimonial of our affection 
and appreciation of his gentle life, we spread this memorial upon our 
records, and direct that a copy be transmitted to his family.

Spencer IRoane Gborpe 



Spencer Roane Thorpe 

Born January 20, 1842, in Louisville, Kentucky 
Died September 2, 1905, in Moor Park, California 



A descendant of Patrick Henry, the whole life of Spencer Roane Thorpe 
was a marked exemplification of the principles which characterized his 
great ancestor. In early youth he entered St. Joseph's College at Bards- 
town, Kentucky, where he remained until the spring of 1 86 1. A South- 
erner by birth and ancestry, all his affections and sympathies went out 
to the people of his home, and in April, 1861, when but nineteen years old, 
he left his College and joined the Confederate Army, enlisting in the 
Sixteenth Mississippi Regiment of Infantry, from which he was trans- 
ferred to the First Kentucky Infantry. He participated in the battle of 
Drainsville, Virginia, on December 20, 1861, where he was wounded, and 
he served with his Regiment until June, 1862, when it was disbanded at 
Richmond, Virginia. 

Returning to Kentucky, he joined Morgan's forces with which he 
fought at Cynthiana on July 16, 1862, and where he again received a 
serious wound. He served under Morgan in the raid through Indiana, 
holding at that time the rank of First Lieutenant, and being in- command 
of a battalion of four companies serving as the advance guard. 

At Corydon, on July 9, 1863, he was so seriously wounded that he was 
left as dead upon the field. Taken prisoner, his recovery was slow, and 
when able to be moved, he was sent to the military prison at Johnson's 
Island, in November, where he was retained until his exchange in Octo- 
ber 1864, when he rejoined his Regiment, then commanded by General 
Basil W. Duke. His final service in the Confederate .Army was with the 
rank of Captain when his command accompanied the Confederate Govern- 
ment from Charlotte, North Carolina to Washington, Georgia, where, 
being captured, he was paroled. 

Upon the establishment of peace he settled in Louisiana, and being ad- 
mitted to the bar by the Supreme Court, he achieved a competence in 
the practice of his profession. 



He came to California in 1883, settling in San Francisco, but in 1886 
lie made a new home for his family in Los Angeles. In May, 1893, he 
was admitted to membership in the California Society Sons of the 
Revolution and in 1897 nc became its Vice-President, holding that office 
by successive elections to the time of his death. 

A charter member of the California Society of Colonial Wars, he was 
Deputy-Governor-Gencral from the date of its organization and its Lieu- 
tenant-Governor from 1896. 

Iiis amiable disposition and hearty support of the principles of this 
Society, had endeared him to all its members, and in his death we mourn 
the loss, not only of a zealous associate, but a sympathetic friend, a gentle- 
man and a strenuous advocate in both his private and public life, for all 
that conduces to honesty and probity in the management of State and 
municipal affairs. To the afflicted widow and children we extend our 
most profound sympathy.

Know ye the land of the cedar and vine, 

Where the flowers ever blossom, the beams ever shine; 

Where the light wings of Zephyr, oppress'd with perfume, 

Wax faint o'er the gardens of Gul in her bloom; 

Where the citron and olive are fairesl of fruit, 

And the voice of the mocking bird never is mute; 

Where the tints of the earth and the hues of the sky, 

In color though varied, in beauty may vie, 

And the purple of ocean is deepest in dye; 

Where the virgins are soft as the roses they twine, 

And all, save the spirit of man, is divine?

A FEW YEARS BEFORE HIS DEATH, FOR THE BENEFIT OF HIS 
CHILDREN, HE COMPILED A SHORT BIOGRAPHY OP HIS LIFE, OF 
WHICH A MOST INTERESTING PART IS NOW RETAINED BY HIS SON. 

THIS MEMOIR IS WRITTEN IN BEAUTIFULLY REGULAR AND DIS- 
TINCT CHARACTERS, AND HIS OBSERVATIONS UPON THE SOCIAL 
LIFE OF IMS ENVIRONMENT, AND THE PROFOUNDLY RELIGIOUS 
COURSE OF THOUGHT PERVADING HIS WRITINGS INDICATE AN INTEL- 
LECTUAL CULTURE OF A HIGH ORDER. 

OF HIS EARLY LIFE HE SAYS: 

"MY FATHER DYED IN MY INFANCY, LONG BEFORE MY REMEM- 
BRANCE; MY MOTHER BEING POOR AND NOT FURNISHED WITH THE 
NECESSARIES OF LIFE GAVE ME UP TO THE DISORESION OF MY 
UNCLES AND GRANDMOTHER BY FATHER'S SIDE. MY GRANDMOTHER 
TOOK SOME PAINS IN LEARNING ME MY CREED, THE LORD'S 
PRAYER ETC, AND WAS VERY CAUTIOUS IN NOT ALLOWING MiE TO 
LYE, CURSE NOR SWEAR. IT PLEASED THE LORD TO PUT PI 1 INTO 
THEIR HEARTS TO GIVE ME SOME SCHOOLING." 

HIS FIRST ENLISTMENT WAS IN JULY 1 77",, AS A PRIVATE IN

NORTH CAROLINA. 

AT TUP: COMMENCEMENT OF THE CIVIL WAR HI-: WAS A JUSTICE 
OF Till] PEACE IN JOHNSTON COUNTY, AND LATER, HI': WAS 
EXEMPT FROM MILITARY SERVICE IN THE CONFEDERATE ARMY, BY 
REASON OF HIS BEING THE AGENT AT STALLING 'S STATION, OF 
THE NORTH CAROLINA CENTRAL RAIL ROAD COMPANY, WHICH POSI- 
TION HE HELD UNTIL THE CLOSE OF THE WAR, ALTHOUGH HIS REPU- 
TATION AS AN ACCOUNTANT AND MANAGER INDUCED THE CONFEDER- 
ATE MILITARY COMMANDER IN HIS VICINITY TO (ALL UPON HIM FOR 
ASSISTANCE, AND FOR A SHORT PERIOD HE ACTED AS CLERK FOR 
COLONEL RADCL1FF. 

IN APRIL, 18(35, HE WENT TO SHELBY COUNTY, ILLINOIS, WHERE

LIFE HAS BEEN AN ADHERENT TO THE PRINCIPLES OF THE DEMO 
CRATIC PARTY, HUT THE AFFECTION OF HIS NEIGHBORS, THE GREAT 
REGARD OF HIS ASSOCIATES AND THE RESPECT FOR HIS CHARAC- 
TER AND ABILITIES, HAVE PLACED HIM ON THE JUDICIAL BENCH! 
DURING FOUR ELECTIONS IN A DISTRICT HAYING A LARGE REPUB- 
LICAN MAJORITY. 

HE HAS BEEN MARRIED TOUR TIMES AND HAS BEEN BLESSED 
WITH FOURTEEN CHILDREN, THOSE OF THE YOUNGLR GENERATION

August, Nineteen Hundred Twenty-six 

/ 0r entlemen: 

^^ On January 25, 1894, I was elected a member (as number fourteen), 
of the California Society, "Sons of the Revolution," the name by which 
it was incorporated May 15, 1893. At about this time the Headquarters of 
the United States Army, Department of Arizona, were removed from Los 
Angeles, and in May, 1894, Lieutenant Charles Lee Collins, the first 
Secretary of the Society, was ordered to join his Regiment and he 
resigned his office and i was elected secretary, which position i held 
for eleven years, until february, 1905. 

On April 14, 1924, General Charles Henry Whipple, Paymaster 
General, U. S. A., Retired, previously a member of the Minnesota Society 
Sons of the Revolution, was elected President of ouh Society, succeed- 
ing Mr. Pierson W. Banning, resigned. In the nine months of his presi- 
dency General Whipple paid off a large indebtedness against the Society, 
which had been accumulated to a great extent from publication expenses 
This entailed most careful and economical administration, and he was 
unanimously renominated for President, rut he declined re-election. As 
a Director and member of several important committees he has continued 
his most valuable services to the society. 

Ouh Annual Church Service in honor of George Washington was 
revived by General Whipple, and through his efforts, ably assisted by 
the Chaplain and the Marshal of the Society, it has become a notable 
patriotic demonstration, attended by great assemblies and participated 
in by leaders of the religious, civic and military organizations of the 
community. 

i was elected to succeed general whipple on january 8, 1925, by a 
hoard of Directors of distinguished abilities, including several members 
OF international reputation. I WAS RE-ELECTED IN 1926 AND during both 
terms i have received co-operation so generous from officers, directors 
and members as to make the light burden of office an ever increasing 
satisfaction. 

Our Society has occupied several of the larger office buildings all 

IN THE CENTRAL BUSINESS SECTION OF Los ANGELES. It WAS ORGANIZED IN THE 
OFFICE OF ITS FIRST PRESIDENT IN THE BRYSON BLOCK, MARCH, 1893, COL. 

Holdridce Ozro Collins, Maj. William Anthony Hlderkin, Lieut. ClIARLES 
Lee Collins, Col. John Miner Carey Marble and Judge James Monroe 
Allen being the organizers. In 1894 headquarters were removed to the 
Stimson Building in the office of Colonel Collins. In 1897 the Society 
rented a room in the IIenne Block and in 1908 special rooms were 
arranged for it in the san fernando building where it remained until 
1915, when it moved, in october, to the citizens'' national bank buildino. 
Its last migration was in Novemher, I919, to its present location in the 

BroADWAV ('EN THAU B(JIL|)ING. 



The Society was incorporated May 15, ISO.'*, and immediately, its first 
President, Colonel Holdridge Ozro Collins, who held that office for 
seventeen years, commenced the collection of a Library, and he estab- 
lished A SYSTEM OF RECORDS AND THE BINDING AND INDEXING OF ALL APPLICA- 
TIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP AND SUBSEQUENT PROOFS, WHICH COURSE OF PROCEDURE 
HAS BEEN PRACTICED TO THE PRESENT DAY. At THE TERMINATION OF HIS LAST YEAR 

as President, he had secured and indexed more than 750 volumes by his 
personal unaided exertions. tlie library now embraces more than ()()()() 
bound volumes and several hundreds of pamphlets for the most part 
devoted to the history of our country, particularly to the period of the 
Revolution. The Library has become so well known by reason of its col ; 
lection of technical and official publications, many of a very rare 
character and not to be found in any other library on the coast, that 
our rooms are frequently congested by the numbers searching for 
historical or biographical information. 

Our numerous Year Books and Registers, which have been noted for 
their valuable information relating to our members and the patriotic 
services of their ancestors are now assembled in a research department 
and segregated from the general library thereby becoming much more 
convenient of access. 

Increase in membership and the constant additions to our bibliog- 
raphy SO DEMANDED MORE SPACE THAT A LARGE ROOM HAS RECENTLY BEEN 

added to our quarters, comfortably furnished. by the generosity of two 
of our members a massive rosewood table, more than a century old, has 
been given us for this room. 

In 1388 a portrait of Mr. George Washington Peachy was painted by 
one of the noted artists of america. altoijt a year before his death, with 
the written consent of his wife and children 1 he presented this portrait 
to our Society and for many years it adorned our Library, but the demand 
for book shelving left no place for it and we loaned it to the southwest 
Museum, as he was one of the early historic settlers of California, 
having been elected sheriff at sacramento in 1853. i'll e portrait has 
been reclaimed and it will be seen in the room of the directors. 

Another of our valued souvenirs is the large and beautiful bronze 

tablet which was erected by the new york society upon fltaunces' 
Tavern. Upon the death of Mr. Frederick S. Tallmadge, by whose efforts 

THE PURCHASE OF THAT HISTORIC BUILDING WAS EFFECTED, A NEW TABLET TO 
HIS MEMORY REPLACED THE ORIGINAL ONE, AND BY THE COURTESY OF OUR MEMBER, 

James M. Montgomery, this first tablet was presented to us. 

i In our Library a gradually increasing collection of historic sou- 

venirs is accumulating to add that romantic interest so valuable as 
u old things pass away" to give place to the new and familiar. 

When the United States Government Building was in process of 
construction, we received permission from 'the postmaster general 'to 
erect thereon a tablet 'to the memory of benjamin franklin, the first 
Postmaster General, and we obtained a very pleasing and significant 
design therefor from m r. .) . e. klolley, 'til e famous artist who designed 
the beautiful tablet attached to the sub-tlteasury building in 
New York, representing Washington at prayer in Valley Forge. This 
project should be carried out at such time as it may become financially 
convenient for our society. 

Our California Society has always maintained a high quality of 
personnel, comprising many of 'the best men of 'till': commonwealth, 
forceful in cliurcii, in civic office and in literary and business pursuits. 
Many also, having served with distinction in our armies and navies from 

'THE DAYS OF I Sf>|; IN TIIF MEXICAN WAR, 'Till'] INDIAN AND SPANISH WARS, AND A 

M 



; -i 



({RATIFYING NUMBER DURING THE WOULD WAR. OUR GENERAL SOCIETY HAS 
ISSUED MEDALS FOR PATRIOTIC SERVICES, ROTH MILITARY, NAVAL AND CIVIL DURING 
THE LATE WAR AND OUR SOCIETY'S SHOWING ON THIS ROLL OF HONOR IS MOST 
GRATIFYING. TllFSF MFDALS WITH A( '< !()M PA N YIN (J CERTIFICATES OF SERVICE, 
AUTHENTICATED BY W.\ R AND NaVV DEPARTMENTS AT WASHINGTON AND 

recorded ln ocr general society's archives will form an invaluable 
record for future g en fkations. 

The California Society has been so consistently loyal to Sons of the 
Revolution ideals as to command the respect of both the General and 
the State Societies to a marked degree, as our files of correspondence 
a bun da n t l v t est i f v . 

The Society down to the present date has elected 1586 members, of 
whom fifteen have been elected since the Annual Meeting of January, 
1926. It is now third in size, being outnumbered in membership only by 
New York and Pennsylvania. The General Society has recognized our 
influence by electing one of our members as the general president; 
one as General Vice-President; two as General Historian, one of whom, 
Col. Collins, was retained in that office by repeated elections for a 
period of ten yfars; one as a member of the national council; and one 
as General Treasurer. Two of our General Officers, Mr. James 
Mortimer Montgomery, Honorary Past General President, and Mr. 
Frank IIervfv Pettjngfll, Vice-President, have recently died, but we 
are still represented on the general council and by the general 
Treasurer. 

Four of our members wfre Sons of soldiers who served under 
Washington. These wfre: 

George Washington Peachy 

Lewis Patrick Phillips 

Francis Marion Lemmon 

DeWitt Clinton Putnam 
All HAve gone to their reward except Judge Phillips, who resides in 
his pleasant home at Downey. 

Our principles prohibit our participation, as a Society, in political 
partisanship or sectarian religious discussions, but we have been identi- 
fied with many activities for the prosperity and welfare of the general 
public, particularly in the proper management of our pljblic school 

SYSTEM OF TEXT BOOKS. 

We HAVE ISSUFD a printed pamphlet protesting against the attempts 
madf to force, as a text book for our public schools, a revised history 
of the United States, of a most offensive nature, impugning the charac- 
ter and dffds of those great men of the Revolution whom we so revere. 

A strong Committee on Patriotic Education, under the chairmanship 
of Col. Arthur Williams, (J. S. A., Retired, has prepared a program for 

IMMEDIATE AGGRESSIVE PATRIOTIC WORK, WHICH WILL, WHEN FULLY MATURED, 
COMMEND ITSELF TO OUR M 10MB I0RSHIP. 

By the most cordial approval of the State Superintendent of Public 
Instruction, in 1890, we sunt to every High School in the State a proc- 
lamation OFFERING TO THE SCHOLARS A SILVER AND A BRONZE MEDAL FOR THE 

best two essays which should be written upon american patriotic his- 
tory, a very large number of papers was received, and it was a source 
of great satisfaction to learn that the committee appointed to fxamine 
these compositions, awarded these medals to two young lads of the los 
Angeles High School. 

Increase in membership of the Society has for several years been 
less rapid than during some previous periods. tlils corresponds with 

m 



the experience of the other state societies, extreme activity in enroll- 
ment being always followed by some reaction. tlie california society 
is more than holding its own, but renewed effort should be made to 
increase our membership. tlie conference room recently added to head- 
quarters makes for greater opportunity in securing members. 

by an amendment to our constitution, local chapters of the society 
may now be formed anywhere outside the clty of los angeles, and it 
is believed that in california, as in several of the other states, such 
local Chapters will be organized and function to the promotion of the 
general good. 

| The social activities of our organization require much careful 

committee work. The expense of mailing notices of entertainments is 
now considerable, so that it is difficult to keep the cost moderate to 
members attending Dinners. Our Entertainment Committee will soon 
arrange for a regular weekly or monthly club dinner, which will 
require no special announcement, in addition to our occasional more 
formal entertainments. 

The general condition of our Society is gratifying. The executive 
officers are co-operating with the utmost harmony. attendance at 
Directors' Meetings is phenomenal. The Treasury shows a credit balance 
of several thousand dollars. that so fine a body of gentlemen should 
have associated together in our organization and continuously manifest 
so great loyalty and enthusiasm for its welfare is unimpeachable evi- 
DENCE OF ITS VALUE TO OUR COMMUNITY AND THE NATION. We HOLD FAST IN 
THIS TIME OF SHIFTING IDEALS AND VAGUE UNTRIED MIRAGES OF GOVERNMENTAL 
PANACEAS, TO THE MEMORY OF OUR FOREFATHERS, WHO, TO A LIVING FAITH IN 
GOD AND IN HUMANITY, JOINED THAT STURDY COMMON SENSE, WITHOUT WHICH 
THE FINEST IDEALS REMAIN FUTILE AND THE MOST GLOWING ALTRUISM IS AS 
VANITY. 

i have the honor to remain, gentlemen of the society. 

Very faithfully yours, 




President

PRECESSION 

^\t the Annual Meeting in January, 1926, it was considered advisable 
to issue a publication similar in design to our year book of 1912, contain- 
ING A Roster of all our members elected since 1915, with an abstract of 

THE SERVICES OF THEIR ANCESTORS AND SUCH ITEMS RELATING TO THE FUNDA- 
MENTAL PRINCIPLES OF OUR ORGANIZATION, AND OUR ACTIVITIES, AS MIGHT BE 
THOUGHT NECESSARY FOR THE IN FORMATION OF THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED 
BY US DURING THE LATER YEARS. 

A Committee on Publication was appointed to prepare the copy for 
the printer, with the sanction of the society for the employment of 
assistants and the payment of all necessary expenses. 

at a meeting of this committee, after a studious consideration and 
summary of statements by experts, it became evident that an edition of 
the proposed design, in quantity sufficient for our entire membership 
and exchanges, would cost about four dollars per volume. 

Since 'the organization of this Society, it has been a general practice, 
—almost an unwritten law,- -that all our publications shall be distrib- 
uted without charge, as we have represented to all applicants that 
they will be called upon for 'the payment to the society of no amounts 
whatsoever other 'than their annual dues. 

The cost for a necessary edition of 'twelve hundred and fifty vol- 
umes AT FOUR DOLLARS PER VOLUME, AMOUNTING TO $5000.00 WOULD BE A DRAIN 

upon our Treasury altogether 'too extensive, and 'therefore the Com- 
mittee RESOLVED TO PRESENT 'THE MATTER TO ALL OUR MEMBERS FOR CON- 
SIDERATION. 

A STATEMENT OF THE SUBJECT WAS SENT TO EACH MEMBER, H()t Ul tilt' nature 

of a demand for a subscription, but with a request that he would indicate whether 
or not he would desire a copy of the proposed book at a price to him of 
'the cost of publication, not to exceed four dollars. 

From nearly twelve hundred members, we received only two hundred 
and sixty-seven subscriptions and many rejections, and therefore the 
Committee resolved that the publication of a Year Hookas contemplated 
at the said annual meeting was impracticable and they so reported 
to 'the Board of Directors, by whom the action of the Committee was 
approved. 

However, as nothing has been issued by the Society since 1924, Mr. 
Benton, our President, realized that a statement of 'the activities of 
'the Society during 'the last two years is generally desired, and 'this 
volume has been prepared, and it will be gratuitously distributed. 

We have received as members to the date of this publication, 1586 
gentlemen. 

Our casualties by death, resignation and dismission have been 443, 
and our Records disclose that our present membership comprises 1 143 
gentlemen, zealous in our work and loyal in their support of 'the activ- 
ITIES of our Society. 

In the Register of 1921, the name of the last member admitted at 
'that date is Sydney Clarence Peterson, No. 1387.

JUDGE GRANT JACKSON 



JUDGE GRANT JACKSON 

Fear no more the heal o' the sun, 

Nor the furious winter's rages; 
Thou thy worldly (ask hast done, 

Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages. 

April 2, KJ2fi 

(Ika.nt Jackson was a Native Son of California, horn in Petaluma 
June 13, I Sim. 

His father, William Jackson had been a valiant officer during the 
war of the Rebellion as a Major of the Union Army, and, influenced 
by his affection and admiration for the glieat captain under whom he 
mad served, he cave to his son the name ov grant. 

Major William Jackson was lorn in Newport, Tennessee, June 5, 
1S22. In his early years he settled in Missouri where his abilities rapidly 

PLACED HIM AS AN INFLUENTIAL FACTOR IN ALL LOCAL PROCEEDINGS FOR Till': 
PUBLIC WELFARE, AND HE WAS ELECTED A MEMBER OF THE M ISSOURI CONSTITU- 
TIONAL ( Convention. 

Soon after the end of the Rebellion he migrated to California and 
established a new home for his family in Sonoma County. A few years 
later hi: moved to the Southern part of the Static and resided at San 
Luis Obispo and Lompoc, at which places his son Grant commenced his 
litlrary education in the Public Schools. 

In right of ancestors who gave their services for the independence 
of our Colonies, Grant Jackson, on May 31, 1917, was elected a member 
No. 402 of the California Society Sons of the Revolution. 

He was the fourth generation in descent from Joseph Jackson, whose 
patriotic deeds have received honorable mention in the records of early 
Tennessee. His campaigns during the Revolution embraced the Western- 
border of the Colonies along the Cumberland River in what is now the 
Western part ok North Carolina and the Eastern end of Tennessee. 
He participated in many actions against the Indian attacks and outrages 
which were incited and fostered by the British Authorities and troops. 
He was an instigator and signer of that remarkable document entered 
into by settlers on the Cumberland, May 1, 1780, which recites "That 
AS THIS settlement is in its infancy, unknown to government and NOT 

INCLUDED WITHIN ANY COUNTY WITHIN NORTH CAROLINA, THE STATE TO WHICH 
IT BELONGS, WE FIND OURSELVES CONSTRAINED FROM NECESSITY TO ADOPT THE 
TEMPORARY METHOD OF RESTRAINING THE LICENTIOUS AND SUPPLYING 15V 

unanimous consent*, the blessings flowing from a just and equitable 
Government/' and declaring that the embodying of a militia was 
demanded for defending themselves against the hostile attempts of 
the enemy. 

Judge Grant's ancestor, William Truitt, at the ace of 'twenty years, 
on September 23, 1780, enlisted in the Virginia Continental Army and 
on February 12, 17S2, he received a CertM'TcAte for 30 pounds, balance 
due him for services in the "Virginia State Line on Continental [Estab- 
lishment." On February 21, 1783, a warrant was issued to him for 3 

POUNDS, 2 SHILLINGS AND 2 PENCE TOR INTEREST DUE ON 'THE ( ' ERTI FICATE OF 

February 12, 17S2. In I7SM \\v. was in Wash borouoii, Tennessee, where 



he organized a military company of which he was commissioned captain, 
and with which, in several eng a(i ements, he saved the settlement from 
devastation by the indians. 

Robert Jackson, the great-grandfather of Grant, on April 13. 1813. 
enlisted in captain ramsey's company of the flrst rlfle regiment ok 
Virginia, during the War of 1812. He died June 12, 1815, while in the 
military service, at mobile bay. itls children were granted a pension 
by the United States (Government, under the Act of April 1(>, 1816. 
Though not related, he enjoyed the personal friendship and interest 
of Andrew Jackson, with whom his services were associated during the 
I War of 1812. 

< Adopting the Legal Profession for his life's work, immediately 

after reaching manhood's age, Grant Jackson was admitted to the Bar 
by the Supreme Court of California, and he rapidly achieved a brilliant 
success during his early practice in Santa Barbara. 

In July, 1913, he was appointed Judge of the Superior Court in Los 
Angeles County and in 19 Id he was ulected in succession for a term of six 
years, retiring in 1921. 

uls amendments to court rules, which he succeeded in having 
adopted, and his remarkable efficiency demonstrated most emphatically 
i that it could not re said of him, 

BocoHim in erasso jura res acre natuni. 
He reformed the procedure op the Bench, prepared a new system of ( -ourt 
blanks and he instituted a new line of conduct whereby litigation was 
shorn of irrelative interjections and trials of suits were more speedily 
obtained. in all his dealings, whether legal or social, tliutu, 'tiik signet 
of zurubbabel, was his own guide and his demand from others. 

hi; was enthusiastically loyal to the masonic order, from which 
he received many honors. ile was past master of southern california 
Lodge, a Knight Templar, and a member of tiik Shrine, the California 
Historical Society, the Native Sons of the Golden West, and the Hnion 
League, Jonathan, City, Scribes, Cortez, and Klks Clubs. 

His lone for his native State absorbed much of his attention and he 
was a strenuous factor in the work of restoring till; ancient monuments 
and the Mission Buildings from their dilapidation. 

The historic value of his Library of volumes and old manuscripts 
relating 'to the pacific coast, had no rival among private collections, 
and his heart throbbed in unison with the pout who wrote: 

Sunrise and roses and hied songs, 

And climates to suit ovory taste: 
Two hours' tide from the snow-sports 

To the heat of the wide desert waste. 

Swimming; and motoring and tramping 

Kvcry week of the year, 
Hunting and fishing and camping, 

Never tornadoes to fear. 

Canyons and valleys and foothills, 

Deserts, the mountains and sea, 
Most, wonderful State of the Union, 

That's whv California's for me. 



But above all and predominantly was an invinviht 
our Country and reverence for Gkoimsk Washington.

FTomer:

tlik farewell address was the hi rle for his political economy, and 
the admonitions in that loving document were the shibboleth which 
guided him with safety through all the perils of an intensely active 
and influential career. iin discussing the problems which have been 
presented to our country since the close of the great war, frequently 
came from his lips! "against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, i 
conjure you to believe me, fellow citizens, the jealousy of a free 
people Ought to be constantly awake. 'Tis our true policy to steer clear 
of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign w r orld"; and 
his diffidence and antipathy to public distinction cave him a rank among 
those whom washington described \ "the name of american which belongs 
to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of 
Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discrimi- 
nations." 

Roi ne puis, Prince ne daigne, American je suis. 

Truly may it be said of Grant Jackson, his success in his professional 
and material activities is a brilliant exemplar for the youth struggling 
for till'; higher light, for his years were not filled with care and trouble 
in which age outsteps the march of 'time.

FRANK HERVEY PETTINGELL 

May 8, 1026 
TO THE MEMORY OF FRANK IIeUVEY PeTTINGELL WHO, DURING AN EXACTING 

career of most useful activities, was called to that great unknown, 
eternal hereafter, the california society sons of the revolution 
inscribes a Record of those characteristic endowments which made him 
an influential factor in all the progressive work of the society. 

Through many links of generation, hack to the earliest Puritans 
of Massachusetts he inherited those principles which have been sig- 
nalized in History and Song and which seem to be inherent in their 

descendants. 

ills dynamic energy and magnetism gave him the ascendency in the 
conduct of civil i mprovements which engrossed his interest, and this 
community has a grateful acknowledgment for his supervision and 
autocratic decisions which resulted in the defeat of all obstructive 
impediments and (j ave to us a noble structure for the housing of our 
Public Library. 

He was President of this Society and Vice-President ok tin: General 
Society Sons of The Revolution: Governor of the California, and His- 
torian of the General Society of Colonial Wars: President of the Los 
Angeles Stock Exchange: Vice-President of the Board of Directors of 
the Los Angeles Public Library and an influential member of several 
Historical, Genealogical and Biographical Societies. In these, as well 
as among all others with whom he came in contact, the vigor and inten- 
sity OF INS TEMPER GAVE HIM AN ASCENDENCY, AND HIS PERSEVERANCE IN ALL 
CAUSES WHICH HE THOUGHT GOOD, SELDOM MET WITH DISCOMFITURE. 

A wise Councillor has departed from us, hut, following the guidance 

OF THE PRINCIPLES OF WHICH 1110 WAS AN EXEMPLAR, OUR FUTURE ACTIVITIES 
WILL BE CONDUCTED WITH UN WARPED JUDGMENT.

.JAMKS MORTIMER MONTGOMERY 



JAMES MORTIMER MONTGOMERY 

Juno 11, 1920 

James Mortimer Montgomery was one of the Founders of the Society 
Sons of the Revolution and the last survivor of the twelve gentlemen 
who incorporated the New York Society. 

From 1886 to 1893 he was Secretary, and during that period he 
achieved for that Society its astonishing success and predominance in 
the Order. 

He was elected Secretary of the General Society upon its organi- 
zation IN 1890, WHICH OFFICE HE RETAINED BY REPEATED ELECTIONS UNTIL 
1911, WHEN HE WAS HONORED BY BEING MADE GENERAL ViCE-PRESIDENT. In 
1914 HE WAS ELECTED GENERAL PRESIDENT, AND ALL WERE SO APPRECIATIVE 
OF HIS ABILITIES AND SERVICES THAT HE MIGHT HAVE HAD A LIFE'S TENURE OF 
THAT DISTINGUISHED POSITION, A COUNTERPART TO GOVERNOR CARROLL, BUT 
IN 1923 HE DECLINED THE OFFICE AND RETIRED FROM ALL OFFICIAL ACTION. 

His mature life ASSOCIATED with the most intellectual social and 

MATERIAL ACTIVITIES OF NEW YORK ClTY. IIe WAS A MEMBER OF THE ORDER OF 

the Cincinnati and several of the most exclusive and influential Clubs 
of the City. He was a leader in the action which resulted in the purchase 

AND RECONSTRUCTION OF FrAUNCEk' TAVERN AND CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE 
HAVING CHARGE OF ALL OPERATIONS FOR ITS PRESERVATION. He INSTITUTED THE 

means for the erection of a monument to nathan hale, and his daughter 
pulled the cord which unveiled that beautiful statue to the great 
assembly when it was presented to the clty by the sons ofthe revolution. 

hls ambition for a general promulgation of the principles of this 
Society, with a demand for the co-operation of all patriotic Americans, 
induced his attention to the pacific coast, and the california society 
owes its early foundation to his suggestion in this behalf and his 
assiduous and unwearied advice and material assistance. 

our obligations to him were so amenable that we felt he should 
not find his good turns shuffled off with such uncurrent pay as thanks 
and ever thanks, and we elected him an honorary llfe member of our 
Society, free from all dues and assessments, and he represented us, to 
the hour of his death, as delegate to the general society. 

He was our Friend, whose adoption had been 'tried, and we of this 
Society, who knew him intimately, had grappled him to our souls with 
hoops of steel. 

a loving memory of him will pervade our minds and hearts so long 
as life shall be to us.
