Introductory Note 



HISTORY of the building of any book is interesting It 
is an index to the thought and purpose which have controlled 
in the undertaking. The merit of the production is best reflected 
in the spirit guiding its accomplishment. 

It may be said, with pardonable pride and justification, that 
during the last three years the Society, Sons of the Revolution, in 
the State of California, has gathered unto itself greater energy and 
stronger enthusiasm. These reinforcements have given it a strength 
and vigor not at all reflective upon its previous distinguished course 
of many years but certainly resulting in an increase of membership, 
extension of activity and enlargement of support, all tending to 
make it a very strong and forceful organization. During the year 
1913 it was recommended by the writer to the Board of Directors 
that a special campaign be inaugurated for new members as a basis 
for securing the achievements in prospect. This was adopted as 
the policy for that year and every energy invoked to make the 
matter a success. This resulted in the influx of a large number of 
new members, composed of the most representative citizens of the 
City of Los Angeles. As a complement to this work, the next step 
was in the direction of increasing the library facilities of the Society. 
Much thought, time and money were then expended in the procuring 
of additional volumes and more recently printed Revolutionary 
records which were placed in the library at an expenditure of 
approximately one thousand dollars. This in itself soon placed the 
library upon a very complete foundation and brought about its 
recognition as one of the accredited libraries of the State. Its effect 
upon the work of the Society, particularly with reference to the 
admission of new members, wa's vital and important. The library 
has sixteen hundred volumes, including practically everything in 
print relative to the Revolutionary Period, and provides within 
itself all available sources of information tending to establish Revo- 
lutionary service, with the sole exception of the lines of inquiry and 
search which must be made at times with respect to the records of 
the United States Government. Further, the Society of Colonial 
Wars in the State of California maintains its offices and headquar- 
ters, together with a magnificent library of five hundred volumes, 
devoted to genealogical research and Colonial records, all in con- 
junction with this Society and its library. 

In addition, while heretofore the work of the Society had '.been 
carried on in a very thorough and competent manner by previous 
administrations, the increase of membership, with new blood and 



10 INTRODUCTORY NOTE 

new ideas, as it were, resulted in the development of a social life 
and enthusiastic co-operation in the Society which had not formerly 
existed. Several notable dinners and banquets have followed which 
have had their direct effect in making the Society of positive value 
to its membership and at the same time crystallizing both effort and 
plan for a continuation of its growth and prosperity. 

As a result of the campaign for new members which had there- 
tofore been inaugurated, in the short space of eighteen months, the 
membership in the Society was doubled, which of itself placed it 
upon an assured foundation of financial support and made possible 
the greater library and other resources for future achievement. In 
this connection it is quite, proper to record that this newer activity 
in the Society was started under the leadership of Mr. Bradner 
Wells Lee, the capable and enthusiastic President of the Society 
for a period of two years. It was quite natural that he should have 
in mind, and also that the need should become immediately appar- 
ent, the publication of a Year Book or Register of the Society which 
should exhibit this new order and progress of affairs in a positive 
way. Almost coincident in point of time and without previous 
conference with each other, the same thought took form in the minds 
of Mr. Edward Thomas Harden and the editor. Each then took it 
upon himself to place the motion in concrete form as a recommen- 
dation to the Board of Directors, with the result that it was received 
with enthusiastic approval. 

At a meeting of the Board of Directors held Tuesday, August 
19, 1913, a motion was regularly made, duly seconded and carried, 
that a committee be appointed by the President for the purpose of 
taking into consideration, preparing and procuring the publication 
of an annual Register of the Society, Sons of the Revolution, in the 
State of California, for the year 1913. The President appointed on 
the above committee Mr. Orra Eugene Monnette and Mr. Edward 
Thomas Harden ; and this was the inception of the undertaking. 

Without giving the chronological order or, in detail, the suc- 
ceeding steps taken in this matter and the several enactments of 
the Board of Directors, suffice it to say that the committee entered 
upon its work with much enthusiasm which has continued through- 
out and has at all points received the earnest and enthusiastic co- 
operation of the members of the Board of Directors, to which regular 
reports of progress of the work have been made and received full 
approval. 

The greatest problem, of course, has been the financing of the 
publication. The membership has responded to several calls for 
advanced subscriptions to the book, the Board of Directors has 
pledged funds to the extent of at least one hundred copies of the 
edition and certain members of the Society have generously agreed 
to finance the undertaking as individuals. 



INTRODUCTORY NOTE 11 

At a meeting of the Board of Directors on January 14, 1914, 
Mr. Bradner Wells Lee was formally added to the membership of 
the committee on publication. At the annual election of officers in 
January, 1915, Mr. Arthur Jay Waters, having been elected to the 
Presidency of the Society, by virtue of his office likewise became a 
member of the committee. At a meeting of the Board of Directors 
held on February 10, 1915, for the purpose of assisting in matters 
involved in the financial support and distribution of the publication, 
Mr. James Rathwell Page. Treasurer of the Society, was duly made 
a member of the Publication Committee. 

The proposed publication was originally designed to become a 
Year Book or Register, first for the year 1913, then for the year 
1914, but necessary delays and time occupied in securing funds for 
the publication have changed each of these conceptions in turn. In 
the fall of 1914, when it became apparent that the book would cer- 
tainly be published, the Publication Committee adopted an entirely 
new plan and decided to depart from the previous idea of making 
the same a Year Book or Register in the sense of attempting to 
issue it as the Register of any particular year date. At this time 
it was determined to place Mr. Orra Eugene Monnette in charge 
of the publication as its editor, and with the approval of the com- 
mittee, Mr. Leon Le Lanne French was selected as assistant editor, 
and to them were committed the duty and labor of preparing the 
actual manuscript and defining the limits and contents of the pub- 
lication, subject to the final approval of said committee. 

In the announcement made in January, 1914, to the member- 
ship, the following was stated in a circular letter as being the 
standard of purpose to be followed in the publication : 

"1st. THE SCOPE AND VALUE OF THE PROPOSED 
REGISTER. 

It is intended to make this Register the most complete and 
attractive piece of work ever issued by this Society. It will 
contain a complete list of the membership of the Society, 
together with the Revolutionary services of the ancestors, from 
whom eligibility is derived, and a complete table of lineal 
descent from such ancestors, who will be thus honored, those 
noble men and women, through whom you descend and whom 
it should be your pride and pleasure to see recorded in history; 
for this is history. 

2nd. DISTRIBUTION OF THE REGISTERS. 

It is intended that every member of the Society shall have 
a copy of this book, in addition to which a copy will be placed 
in each of the important libraries of the United States and in 
some of the foreign countries. The number of copies which 
will be required for distribution to the General and State So- 
cieties and libraries will be large. 



12 INTRODUCTORY NOTE 

3rd. FINANCING OF THIS PUBLICATION. 

The scope and contemplated new features (for this Com- 
mittee has new and very interestingly new features in con- 
templation) place the financing of this work upon the generosity 
of our individual membership which has never yet failed the 
Society. The Committee' appeals not only to your sense of 
generosity and good will, but as well to your patriotism, which 
will be exhibited by your doing your part in the enrollment on 
the pages of history, of the names of your patriotic progenitors, 
as well as your own record and lineage." 

As a result of this scheme of publication and this scope of the 
work which was so early outlined to the membership and which has 
been conscientiously adhered to, the completed work is herewith 
presented to the membership of the Society, Sons of the Revolution, 
in the State of California, with an earnest hope for its sincere appro- 
bation in every quarter and a generous reception at every hand. It 
is committed to your care and thought with a reasonable pride in 
accomplishment and with the hope that its demerits may be gener- 
ously overlooked. 

With reference to the matter included in the book, which is not 
wholly indicated in the general prospectus as originally outlined in 
the above, it should be stated that the special features of this book 
are the lists of Revolutionary Soldiers and Sailors which are placed 
in the closing pages of the volume. Animated by the thought and 
desire to make the book of permanent and extended value as a 
reference book and to preserve it as a standard of usefulness in 
patriotic research there have been included a list of Revolutionary 
Soldiers, appearing only in scattered sources, of the State of Mary- 
land ; the same of South Carolina ; and, special lists of Sailors of the 
Revolutionary War, some of which have only been given to the 
public in the last few years through the meritorius publication of 
the Naval History Society, with headquarters at 247 Fifth Avenue, 
New York City. The limited issue of its books prevents their 
availability to members of all patriotic societies and, on that account 
and by the courtesy of that Society, one list of Sailors is herewith 
presented. The other lists were compiled from other sources. 

The title of the book has been chosen with the idea that the 
active life of the book would be the longer sustained if it were not 
coupled with a year date which would be rapidly relegated to the 
past. In addition to this the contents of the book have been guided, 
both in the matter contained and in the order of presentation, 
together with the valuable and exhaustive index, so that, as a refer- 
ence book, its life might be the further prolonged. 

The absence of illustrations is explained by the fact that the ex- 
tensive matter included made it necessary to keep the cost of publi- 
cation at a minimum, and while manv attractive and illustrative 



INTRODUCTORY NOTE 13 

features might have been added, yet it is believed that the judgment 
of the committee in this connection will be fully approved. 

As appears, only two illustrations have been included in the 
book, viz : The frontispiece, entitled "Three Real Sons of the Revo- 
lution," and that of the Monterey Mission. 

The former has been inserted because of the fact that this 
Society has a special distinction in having had as members three 
whose fathers served in the Revolutionary War, and two of these 
members are living at the time of this publication. This is unique 
in itself and, for that reason, a cut of each of these "Honorable Sons" 
appears in illustration in the frontispiece. 

Further prompted by the desire to make this book as distinctly 
Californian in character as might be possible, and having in mind 
that many of the sister Societies of the Sons of the Revolution are 
located in the States comprising the original thirteen Colonies and, 
on that account, possess locations and history immediately con- 
nected with the events of the War of the Revolution, the Publica- 
tion Committee has deemed it to be both proper and significant to 
include in the book a "Chronology of California," which has been 
carefully compiled by the editor. This will bring to the reader and 
student positive knowledge and information concerning the splendid 
history belonging to the Western Coast of the United States, on the 
points of early discovery, exploration, and romantic adventure, which 
do not so frequently receive prominent notation as with the early 
history of the Atlantic seaboard; and while high tribute must be 
paid to the adventurer and colonist who made the settlement of the 
Eastern Coast of the American Continent both possible and per- 
manent; likewise to the intrepid and courageous Spanish romancer 
and to the patient and zealous Franciscan Friar must be given simi- 
lar honor and credit for the like development of the Pacific Coast. 

The discovery and history of California are almost contem- 
poraneous in chronicle and event with the exploration and coloniza- 
tion upon the shores of the Atlantic. Christopher Columbus ante- 
dated Vasco Nunez de Balboa, in his discovery of America as com- 
pared with the discovery of the Pacific Ocean, by approximately 
twenty-one years. Hernando Cortes was on the Pacific Coast six 
years later, and California properly dates her history from the 
notable voyage and discovery of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1542. 

The first settlement on the Atlantic Coast was Saint Augustine, 
now in Florida, in 1565, but which was not continuous. The James- 
town settlement of 1607 and the landing of the Mayflower in 1620 
are the early dates of American history ; but the founding of the 
town of San Gabriel in later New Mexico in 1598, though not per- 
manent, antedates the former by nine and the latter by twenty-two 
years. And, Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the second oldest and per- 
manent city in the United States. Therefore, California history 
and that of the Great West are just as ancient as that of Virginia 



14 INTRODUCTORY NOTE 

and the New England States. Further, there was a romance, 
founded in the spirit of adventure, eager conquest and search for 
treasure, which commenced as the inspiration of early Spanish voy- 
agers and continued even until the gold excitement of 1849, which 
is unequaled in comparison with the more commonplace trials and 
adventures of the early colonists in eastern Xorth America. 

While the American Revolution was in progress in the original 
thirteen colonies, the foundations of California were being laid in 
most positive and permanent form. The boasted achievements of 
the Pilgrim and Puritan, and of the Huguenot are merited, but the 
Californians will ever have a treasured memory of the Spanish 
Cavalier and of the Franciscan Friar. Their priceless heritage was 
the gift of Cabrillo and Father Junipero Serra, together with a 
faithful and zealous train of romantic adventures and pious neo- 
phytes. Therefore, truthfully measuring Californian history, this 
is distinctively a California book. 

Considering further the preparation of the material appearing 
in the book, the compilation of the matter, including the corre- 
spondence, and the time and labor expended, have been prodigious. 
A large part of this has been contributed by Mr. Leon Le Lanne 
French, to whom the credit should be given. Further, the members 
of the Publication Committee and the officers of the Society have 
each and all given their splendid co-operation and support in the 
publication work. 

In the knowledge that the work has been conscientiously per- 
formed and in the hope that it shall serve its high purpose, the 
publication labors are now drawn to a close. May this expression 
of the activity, the earnest life of the Society, find a larger fruition 
in the stimulation of a newer and stronger patriotism in the hearts 
of its members and in the hearts of those who may hereafter seek 
the benefit of a relationship with the Society.

Why a Revolutionary Patriotic Society 

Should Secure Recognition 

and Support 



TRADITIONS of a people are more impressive than 
historic fact itself. In the Revolution the most cherished 
traditions of Liberty became incarnated in the birth of the Ameri- 
can Republic. 

The spiritual life of a nation is essentially founded in its ele- 
mental expression of the love of law, and with this naturally follows 
the loftiest ideals of liberty and truth. 

The preservation of these ideals should be the dominating note 
in American life, in American government, in American diplomacy. 

The decimating influences of a material age, an ever increasing 
alien element in our society, born and bred abroad in an atmosphere 
of sedition and anarchy, make it a vital obligation of every Ameri- 
can with a background of lineage, to formally ally himself with 
those stable and enduring influences which were fundamental in 
the beginning of this government. 

In an epoch when history is making in such tragic and gigantic 
form ; when the bonds of international treaty and agreement are 
held so lightly; when the sophistry and the specious demand of 
material growth and power are made the impelling and domineering 
philosophy of imperial expansion ; when international differences, in 
the very presence of the most enlightened, refined and Christian 
civilization of history, can find a basis of settlement only in an 
archaic and barbarous resort to human slaughter and the annihila- 
tion of all that is beautiful in life and art : we may well ask our- 
. selves in America whether the throes by which this Republic came 
into life were not hallowed by a more just and righteous cause. 

Since, in all history, Liberty never was so sweetly and tenderly 
cradled as on the shores of this western world, America has cher- 
ished the hope that her love of country was the type of the purest 
and most vital patriotism. In the asylum she has consistently 
offered to all who truly suffered oppression and who, by self-efface- 
ment and merging into the spirit of our national life, loyally became 
a part of the fibre of our civilization in these great offices of broth- 



22 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

erhocd and helpfulness we have believed this nation has earned the 
right to endure. 

If in the evolution of our national life there has developed an 
aristocracy of lineage, we may know that it had its beginning in 
the character and genus of those ancestors whose great minds con- 
ceived and strong hearts defended, the principles of liberty and law 
that have made and kept this nation great. Because they lived and 
died that we and all who may come after us may be free, the 
patriotic societies which keep our minds reverent of the matchless 
achievements of those noble men should receive the cordial support 
of every American of family.

Historical Sketch of the General Society 



The first patriotic society in the United States to base its membership 
upon hereditary succession was the Society of the Cincinnati, which was 
formed on the banks of the Hudson River May 12, 1783, by some of the 
officers of the American Army during the period of the Revolution. Mem- 
bership is based upon an official service only and is established on the law 
of primo-geniture. As a result of this policy that Society has remained 
very small and will of necessity decrease in its membership. This re- 
mained as the only patriotic Society of that character based upon Revo- 
lutionary service for very nearly a century of time. 

However, in December of 1873, several efforts were made by Mr. 
John Austin Stevens of New York to induce the Society of the Cincinnati, 
through its President-General, Honorable Hamilton Fish, to change the 
policy of that organization so as to provide for admission to membership 
upon more extended lines so that the doors of the organization should be 
open to a larger number of Revolutionary descendants. These efforts 
were not met with any response. As a result of this rebuff, the ideas and 
thoughts of Mr. Stevens were crystallized in a purpose to organize a new 
Society to be carried on upon broader lines of membership than the older 
organization. 

At this point it is proper to record that to California belongs the 
proud distinction of having been the home of one of these earlier efforts 
to found a new patriotic Society. Many of the descendents of Revolu- 
tionary Sires were living in San Francisco, California, in 1876. Several 
of the public spirited of these issued a call for a meeting and organized; 
and, on July 4, 1876, a permanent organization was entered into and 
called "Sons of the Revolutionary Sires." It soon gathered to its mem- 
bership quite a number of men who have been distinguished in the history 
of California. The organization was, however, short lived and such few 
records as were established were destroyed in the great San Francisco fire 
and earthquake in 1906. While this effort cannot be linked in the history 
of any patriotic organization now in existence, yet it is given this refer- 
ence because it belongs peculiarly to California history. Further, it is 
interesting to note that one of the originators of this movement was the 
Honorable Joseph Sharon, of the same family as ex-Senator William 
Sharon of Nevada, both of whom in former years figured quite largely in 
the activities of San Francisco. Mr. Sharon qualified in that Society 
under his own grandfather, the Revolutionary Soldier Joseph Eaton, one 
of whose descendants, Mr. George Harold Janeway, has become a member 
of this Society, qualifying under the same ancestor. 

Returning to the history of these early efforts to found a distinctive 
Revolutionary Society, there is one man only to whom the greatest honor 
must be given. 



28 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

Mr. John Austin Stevens is truly the founder of the Society, Sons of 
the Revolution. He gathered about him a number of associates who 
adopted and supported his cause, and on the 18th day of December, 1875, 
in the rooms of the New York Historical Society, a meeting was held to 
determine the possibilities of the new organization. Mr. Stevens there 
proposed a definite organization and the name, "Sons of the Revolution," 
was adopted at this preliminary meeting. 

Later at a meeting held at the same place on January 15, 1876, a 
constitution presented by Mr. Stevens was unanimously adopted and signed 
by all who were present. The new organization was launched with much 
hope and certain confidence in its future growth and prosperity. 

Unfortunately, this attempt did not come to a full enjoyment of its 
possibilities at that time. 

One of the charter members and founders of the California Society 
is Colonel Holdridge Ozro Collins, who has been for several years the 
General Historian of the General Society. In 1905, as appears from the 
publication of the General Society for that year, a very exhaustive account 
appears concerning the general organization, which was prepared by Col. 
Collins. The facts recited therein are adverted to here as the foundation 
for this sketch and for the greater portion of the following language Col. 
Collins should be given the credit: 

Referring to the adoption of the name "Sons of the Revolution," 
the committee chose an appellation significant of its purpose to con- 
serve those eternal principles of honor, patriotism, liberty and justice, 
the heritage from "The Sons of Liberty," and which name we most 
devoutly believe will endure until time shall end. 

Such was the institution of the Society, Sons of the Revolution, and 
Mr. Stevens was requested to make such public announcement of the fact 
as he might think suitable. He issued the following circular letter: 

"SONS OF THE REVOLUTION: 

The Society of the Cincinnati, founded at West Point by the 
officers of the army of the Revolution in 1783, originally limited its 
membership to descendants of officers in the elder branch, and with a 
temporary and short variation from the rule, has ever maintained its 
restriction. 

The approach of the Centennial Anniversary of American Inde- 
pendence is an appropriate time for the formation of a Society on a 
broader basis, which may include all descendants of those who served 
with the Army of the Revolution. 

The undersigned have formed themselves into a Society under 
the name of 

"SONS OF THE REVOLUTION," 

and invite the membership of all who, like themselves, are descendants 
of officers or soldiers of the Revolutionary Army. 



HISTORY, GENERAL SOCIETY 29 

The object of the Society is to take part in the Centennial Exhi- 
bition at Philadelphia. 

A meeting will be held for organization at the rooms of the New 
York Historical Society on the morning of Tuesday, the 22nd of 
February next (1876) at 12 o'clock. All persons having a right and 
desire to become members may send their names and the names of 
those they represent to the undersigned (Box 88, Station "D," New 
York Post Office). 

JOHN AUSTIN STEVENS." 

But few acceptances of this invitation were received, and, deferring 
further action, Mr. Stevens awaited with patience a more propitious occa- 
sion to present the features of this new Society. 

At the close of the year 1883, the Centennial Anniversaries of the 
evacuation of New York, and of Washington's last meeting with his officers, 
were events which indicated to Mr. Stevens and his associates that 
the time had come for a successful and permanent establishment of the 
Order. 

Elaborate preparations were made for a dinner at Fraunce's Tavern, 
to be given on December 4, 1882, in commemoration of the close of Wash- 
ington's military career, in that affectionate and pathetic farewell to his 
officers, "With a heart full of love and gratitude, I now take leave of you ; 
I most devoutly wish that your latter days may be prosperous and happy 
as your former ones have been glorious and honorable." 

Here, at the time indicated, in the identical "Long Room," assembled 
a company of representative New York citizens, gentlemen distinguished 
in the mercantile world and in the walks of science, literature, medicine, 
jurisprudence and the church. 

The Constitution of the Society, Sons of the Revolution, was pre- 
sented by Mr. Stevens and his associates, and it was received with enthusi- 
astic acclaim. The original document was brought from the Archives of 
the Historical Society where it had been deposited, and it was signed by 
all present who were eligible by Revolutionary descent, more than forty 
gentlemen affixing their signatures, and the New York Society was organ- 
ized by the election of John Austin Stevens, President; John Cochrane, 
Vice-President; Austin Huntington, Secretary; and George H. Potts, 
Treasurer. 

On the 29th day of April, 1884, a certificate of incorporation was 
executed by the following gentlemen: John Austin Stevens, John Coch- 
rane, Austin Huntington, George H. Potts, Frederick S. Tallmadge, 
George W. W. Houghton, Asa Bird Gardiner, Thomas H. Edsall, Joseph 
W. Drexel, James Mortimer Montgomery, James Duane Livingston, 
Alexander R. Thompson, Jr., and John Bleecker Miller, and on May 2nd, 
1884, Judge George C. Barrett signed the certificate of incorporation. 

Public attention was immediately attracted to this new Society, and 
an increase of membership followed, not alone from New York, but from 
the adjoining states. At the annual election of 1884, Mr. Frederick 



30 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

Samuel Tallmadge was elected President, in which office he was continued 
for the remainder of his life, and George Washington Wright Houghton 
was chosen Secretary, serving until 1886, when he was succeeded by James 
Mortimer Montgomery. Upon the organization of the General Society 
at Washington, on April 19, 1890, Mr. Montgomery was elected General 
Secretary, but the great prosperity of the New York Society, resulting 
from his energetic labors, had been so marked that its members insisted 
he should continue in the charge of its affairs. In 1893, however, the 
accumulation of work in the General Society made it impossible for him 
to retain both positions, and he declined a re-election by New York. 

On April 3, 1888, Mr. John Wolf Jordan and fourteen other gentle- 
men, of Philadelphia, all qualified by Revolutionary ancestry and some of 
them previously admitted to the New York Society, assembled at the office 
of Dr. Herman Burgin, in Philadelphia, and organized an independent 
Society of Sons of the Revolution for the State of Pennsylvania. 

The founders of this Society were Oliver Christian Bosbyshell, 
George Horace Burgin, Herman Burgin, Richard McCall Cadwalader, 
James Edward Carpenter, Robert Porter Dechert, William Churchill 
Houston, Jr., John Wolf Jordan, Josiah Granville Leach, Elon Dunbar 
Lockwood, Charles Marshall, Samuel Whitaker Pennypacker, John Biddle 
Porter, William Brooke Rawle, and William Wayne. 

The adoption of an insignium early engaged the attention of the 
Pennsylvania Society, and in October, 1888, a committee consisting of 
Col. Oliver Christian Bosbyshell, Mr. John Wolf Jordan and Dr. Herman 
Burgin was appointed to secure designs, with instructions to consider those 
submitted by Major L'Enfant to the Society of the Cincinnati in 1783. 
Finally, on January 14-, 1889, the present design was accepted, and sub- 
sequently adopted by the New York Society, and since by the General 
Society as the insignium of the Sons of the Revolution. During the same 
year, committees were appointed to consider designs for a rosette and a 
certificate of membership. On November llth, the rosette of the New 
York Society was accepted, and has ' since been adopted by the General 
Society. The beautiful seal of the New York Society was also unani- 
mously adopted. 

Considerable diversity of sentiment had been manifested in the dis- 
cussion relating to the selection of society colors. 

The Cincinnati had taken the colors blue and white for the distinctive 
ribbons suspending their order, as descriptive of the union of America 
and France, and the very intimate association of Sons of the Revolution 
with the Cincinnati in all patriotic celebrations and the large number of 
those gentlemen who had participated in the organization of the societies 
in New York, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, forbade the 
great discourtesy of appropriating colors which belonged to them by so 
long a prescription, and the buff and blue were selected, as being distinctive 
marks of the uniform of the Continental soldiers. 

Acting under a special dispensation from the New York Society, 
granted in response to their application therefore, presented on March 11, 



HISTORY, GENERAL SOCIETY 31 

1889, certain gentlemen, residing in the City of Washington, organized in 
the month of April, 1889, the District of Columbia Society. The founders 
of this Society were David D. Porter, John Lee Carroll, C. R. Rodgers, 
S. R. Franklin, Nicholas Longworth Anderson, Robley D. Evans, J. G. 
Walker, Theo. B. M. Mason, Richard Rush, W. K. Van Reypen, Daniel 
Morgan Taylor, John Schuyler Crosby, Arthur Henry Dutton, and Archi- 
bald Hopkins. 

In the early part of 1890, the large increase of membership in New 
York, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, and the unanimous mani- 
festation of a desire for a closer bond of association between these societies, 
and the establishment of some general rules under which their proceedings 
might be harmonized, resulted in the appointment of committees from 
New York and Pennsylvania, to consider the feasibility of a union, and 
report their joint action to their several societies. 

At a conference of these committees in Philadelphia, February 12, 

1890, to which was added Mr. Arthur Henry Dutton from the District of 
Columbia, the fundamental principles for a General Society were evolved, 
and to Judge Sims was given the honor of drawing a constitution. 

Clifford Stanley Sims was a Justice of the New Jersey Court of 
Errors and Appeals, and. for many years, President of the New Jersey 
Society of the Cincinnati. In the draft of a constitution for the Sons of the 
Revolution, he took as a model, the institution of the Cincinnati. A com- 
parative analysis of the two instruments will disclose how closely he fol- 
lowed such of the sections of the institution as were appropriate for the 
new Society, adopting, in many portions, the exact language of the original 
document ; and in submitting the result of his labors, he stated that he 
had omitted provisions for amendments, believing the course pursued by 
the Cincinnati, for such emergencies, to be the best. 

Within less than two months after its submission, the constitution 
prepared by Judge Sims and reported by the Joint Committee was unani- 
mously approved and ratified by the three original Societies of New York, 
Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia. Delegates from these Socie- 
ties were at once appointed to meet in joint convention to establish the 
more perfect union contemplated in the Constitution drawn by Judge Sims. 

At Washington, on the nineteenth day of April, 1890, in Chamberlin's 
Hotel, the deputies from the three Societies of New York, Pennsylvania 
and the District of Columbia were called to order by Mr. Frederick Samuel 
Tallmadge, President of the New York Society, and that assemblage of 
distinguished gentlemen effected the consummation of the union so ardently 
desired. The General Society, Sons of the Revolution, was established 
upon the broadest foundations of fraternal and ancestral association, and 
State equality, and the following gentlemen were the first officers elected: 

General President, 
Ex-Governor John Lee Carroll, of Maryland. 

General rice-President, 
Mayor William Wayne, of Pennsylvania. 



32 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

General Secretary, 
James Mortimer Montgomery, of New York. 

Assistant General Secretary, 
Timothy Matlack Cheesman, of New York. 

General Treasurer, 
Richard McCall Cadwalader, of Pennsylvania. 

Assistant General Treasurer, 
Arthur Henry Dutton, of District of Columbia. 

General Chaplain, 
Daniel Cony Weston, D.D., of New York. 

To the energy and persistence of those who were thus early inspired 
to found and establish a distinctive organization, the honor and credit of 
the Society, Sons of the Revolution should be given. That it has so 
grown and prospered must be likewise placed upon the same spirit of 
earnestness accompanied by conscientious belief in the principles of the 
American commonwealth. The Society occupies a unique position in a 
lengthy list of similar organizations and certainly has attained to the 
standard of credit and distinction so early established. 

At the eighth Triennial meeting held in Washington, D. C., on April 
17-19, 1914, delegates from nineteen State Societies were in attndance, 
and thirty-two Societies, with a total active membrship of 6832, were 
reported as continuing upon sound foundations. 

In all there have been sixteen meetings of the General Society since 
its formation in April, 1890. The dates and places of these meetings are 
as follows:

16. Eighth Triennial Meeting at Washington, D. C., April 17-19, 1914. 

In conclusion, it should be suggested that while the Society is founded 
upon a reasonable and pardonable pride in ancestry, it caters to no false 
spirit of aristocracy. It is founded upon the broader and more high- 
minded thought of a preservation of the records and history of those men 
who gave both civil and religious liberty to the early colonists of America, 
and who, in founding and establishing a new Republic, rendered a dis- 
tinguished service to those of that time and generation, as well as to all 
posterity. To true Americans the spirit of patriotism should enter into 
the very fiber of manhood and womanhood. The continuation and per- 
petuation of a loyal citizenship are dependent upon the true love of country 
and on the beneficent institutions of America. It is believed that no 
organization is better fitted to keep alive, upon the altars of the heart, the 
fires of exalted patriotism, and to enshrine in the memory of each member 
the honorable and distinctive careers of the founders of this glorious com- 
monwealth.

The Constitution 



Done at the City of Philadelphia, on the 12th day of February, 1890, and of 
the Independence of the United States the one hundred and fourteenth. 

Adopted in the City of New York, March 8th, 1890. 
Section III amended April 23rd, 1892. 
Section VIII amended April 21st, 1896. 
Section VII amended April 19th, 1905. 



I. 

It being evident, from a steady decline of a proper celebration of the 
National holidays of the United States of America, that popular concern 
in the events and men of the War of the Revolution is gradually declin- 
ing, and that such lack of interest is attributable, not so much to the lapse 
of time and the rapidly increasing flood of immigration from foreign coun- 
tries, as to the neglect, on the part of descendants of Revolutionary heroes, 
to perform their duty in keeping before the public mind the memory of 
the services of their ancestors and of the times in which they lived ; there- 
fore, the Society of the Sons of the Revolution has been instituted to per- 
petuate the memory of the men who, in the military, naval and civil 
service of the Colonies and of the Continental Congress by their acts or 
counsel, achieved the Independence of the country, and to further the 
proper celebration of the anniversaries of the birthday of Washington, 
and of prominent events connected with the War of the Revolution; to 
collect and secure for preservation the rolls, records, and other documents 
relating to that period; to inspire the members of the Society with the 
patriotic spirit of their forefathers ; and to promote the feeling of friend- 
ship among them. 

II. 

The General Society shall be divided into State Societies, which shall 
meet annually on the day appointed therefor in their respective by-laws, 
and oftener if found expedient; and at such annual meeting the reasons 
for the institution of the Society shall be considered, and the best measures 
for carrying them into effect adopted. 

III. 

The State Societies, at every annual meeting, shall choose by a 
majority of the votes present, a President, a Vice-P resident, a Secretary, 
a Registrar, a Treasurer, a Chaplain, and such other officers as may by 
them respectively be deemed necessary, together with a board of managers 
consisting of these officers and of nine other members, as may be provided 
by their respective Constitutions and By-laws.

may be thought worthy of observation respecting the welfare of the Society 
or of the general Union of the States, and giving information of the officers 
chosen for the year; and copies of these letters shall also be transmitted 
to the General Secretary, to be preserved among the records of the General 
Society.

affairs, consistent with the general good of the Society; judge of the quali- 
fication of their members, or of those proposed for membership, subject, 
however, to the provisions of this Constitution; and expel any member 
who, by conduct unbecoming a gentleman or a man of honor, or by an 
opposition to the interests of the community in general or of the Society 
in particular, may render himself unworthy to continue in membership. 

VI. 

In order to form funds that may be respectable, each member shall 
contribute, upon his admission to the Society and annually thereafter, such 
sums as the by-laws of the respective State Societies may require ; but any 
of such State Societies may provide for the endowment of memberships by 
the payment of proper sums in capitalization, which sums shall be properly 
invested as a permanent fund, the income only of which shall be expended. 

VII. 

The regular meeting of the General Society shall be held every three 
years, and special meetings may be held upon the order of the General 
President or upon the request of two of the State Societies, and such meet- 
ings shall consist of two Delegates from each State Society and one addi- 
tional Delegate for every one hundred (100) members or major fraction 
thereof; and on all questions arising at meetings of the General Society 
each Delegate there present shall be entitled to one vote, and no votes shall 
be taken by States, and the necessary expenses of such meeting shall be 
borne by the State Societies. 

VIII. 

At the regular meeting, a General President, General Vice-President, 
General Second Vice-President, General Secretary, Assistant General Sec- 
retary, General Treasurer, Assistant General Treasurer, General Regis- 
trar, General Historian and General Chaplain shall be chosen by a ma- 
jority of the votes present, to serve until the next regular General meeting,

The Society, Sons of the Revolution 

in the State of California 
Its Origin, History and Achievements 



Written at the Request of the Publication Committee 

BY 

Edward Thomas Harden, 
One of the Founders. 

When it is remembered that a State Society of the Sons of the Revo- 
lution is an integral part of the General Society, just as a State is an 
integral part of the Federal Union, it is eminently proper to give a brief 
history of the origin of an organization which has been the pioneer in 
the work of rescuing from oblivion the names, records and deeds of the 
brave, undaunted men who founded this great and glorious Republic. 

For exactly one hundred years the descendants of the heroic men 
who fought and won the most remarkable and unprecedented war in the 
annals of history, known as the American Revolution, were satisfied to 
rely upon tradition for the names and supposed facts as to the part 
played by their ancestors in that great struggle for freedom and inde- 
pendence ; but as can be readily understood, and as has been proven in 
the light of documentary evidence, these traditions, by reason of vague- 
ness as to events and the uncertain identity of the individuals connected 
therewith, were valueless as historical data. There were in existence 
family trees, family Bibles and local histories which gave some facts of 
great value, but, alas ! how little was known of the great rank and file 
of these unconquerable and conquering men. 

History was fairly complete concerning the events and some par- 
ticulars were given of the principal figures who took part therein, but 
the lesser lights did not so appear on the pages of history. 

Then came the awakening. It came when the hundred years was 
near at hand, when the centennial anniversaries of the various events 
of the Revolution, from the battles of Lexington and Concord, which were 
fought April 19th, 1775, to the evacuation of the City of New York by 
the British troops, which occurred on the 26th day of November, 1783, 
a period of eight years and seven months and known as the "Period of 
the Revolution," were to be celebrated. 

There were centennial celebrations of nearly all the events of the 
Revolution, but the birthday of the United States as a Federal Govern- 



44 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

merit, which was July 4th, 1776, was to be celebrated in a manner worthy 
of so great a Government and the Congress of the United States by ample 
appropriation provided for a proper celebration in the Centennial Expo- 
sition which was held in the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during 
the year 1876. 

On the 22nd day of February, 1876, in the city of New York, at 
the invitation of Mr. John Austin Stevens, a number of gentlemen met 
in the library of the New York Historical Society, and then and there 
organized the Society, Sons of the Revolution, the founders of which 
were the descendants of Revolutionary soldiers. The purpose of this 
organization was to participate in the observance at Philadelphia of the 
natal day of the Nation. 

There was in existence at that time only one civic organization of 
a patriotic character which was composed of the descendants of Revolu- 
tionary soldiers and which linked the Revolution with the then pres- 
ent time ; that organization was the Society of the Cincinnati. This So- 
ciety, by reason of the limitations of its organic laws relative to primo- 
geniture and descent from an officer of the Revolution had become mori- 
bund in most of the original thirteen states of the Union. 

After the observance of the Centennial Celebration of 1878, Mr. 
Stevens and his associates made every effort to induce the Society of 
the Cincinnati to amend its constitution so as to grant eligibility to mem- 
bership to the male descendants of any soldier of the Revolution. Their 
efforts being futile, on the 4th day of December, 1883, in the historic 
"Long Room" of Fraunce's Tavern, the New York Society, Sons of the 
Revolution, was organized, and on the 19th day of April, 1884, was 
incorporated under the laws of the State of New York. 

The growth of the New York Society was most satisfactory and 
many gentlemen residing in other states joined that Society. The move- 
ment became so popular that soon other state societies were formed until, 
in 1890, the General Society was formed just as the Federal Govern- 
ment of the United States was similarly established. 

It should be stated at this point that so popular have became these 
patriotic societies that kindred societies of both men and women have 
since been organized. They now count their membership by the thou- 
sands and tens of thousands. 

During the time when centennial celebrations were being held, the 
author of this history, as an humble member of an historic military organ- 
ization, was a participant in two celebrations one of which was the cen- 
tennial of the "Battle of Fort Sullivan" in June, 1876. The name of 
this fort has been changed to, and it is still known as Fort Moultrie. 
Standing as the author did, upon the ramparts of that historic fort, at 
the very point from which the immortal Sergeant William Jasper leaped 
to rescue the flag that had been struck down by a shot from the enemy's 
ship, there was born in him a desire and a determination to know more 
than he then knew of those Revolutionary ancestors, from whom he had 
been told he was descended. 



HISTORY, CALIFORNIA SOCIETY 45 

This knowledge was gained but was not made use of until the organ- 
ization of the Society, Sons of the Revolution in the State of California. 

On April 10th, 1893, the author addressed a letter to Mr. James 
Mortimer Montgomery, then General Secretary, and who is now General 
President of the General Society, asking for information and permission 
to organize a Society of the Sons of the Revolution in the State of Cali- 
fornia, his adopted state. This letter was transmitted to Mr. Montgomery 
through a brother of the author who had been a member of the New 
York Society, but was then the Secretary, and still is, and was one of 
the founders of the Georgia Society. Mr. Montgomery's reply, dated 
April 20th, 1893, was a most cordial endorsement of the project, and 
in this he gave the names of several gentlemen then living in California 
who were members of the New York Society, and among them the name 
of Col. Holdridge Ozro Collins. The day after the receipt of Mr. Mont- 
gomery's letter, Col. Collins, to whom Mr. Montgomery had also written 
under the same date, mentioning the receipt of the author's letter, and 
stating his eligibility, called on him at his residence. The result of that 
conference was that, on the 8th day of May, 1893, the Society, Sons 
of the Revolution, in the State of California, was instituted and on the 
15th day of May, 1893, was incorporated, under the laws of California, 
for the period of fifty years, that being the statutory limit. The founders 
and incorporators were the six gentlemen whose names will be found on 
the page set aside for that purpose. Five of these gentlemen were resi- 
dents of Los Angeles Lieutenant Charles Lee Collins, U. S. A., Col. 
Holdridge Ozro Collins and Major William Anthony Elderkin, U. S. A., 
were members of the New York Society; Col. John Miner Carey 
Marble was a member of the Pennsylvania Society. The author was not 
a member of any Society. Mr. James Monroe Allen, of San Francisco, 
the other founder, was a member of the New York Society. 

The growth of the Society was not rapid, in fact it was slow; yet 
it was a steady growth. Each year showed an increase of membership. 
One of the greatest obstacles was the lack of such Revolutionary records 
as were to be found in the Eastern States. Our modern Western libraries 
contained none, and, as a Society, the accumulation of a library was un- 
dertaken and extended. This development of a library has been one of 
the important works of the Society, and it now possesses one of more 
than sixteen hundred volumes, many of which are priceless. As far 
as is known, the Society's library contains the complete publications of 
every State Society, and these publications have in themselves proved in- 
valuable to its work. 

This history is not intended to set forth in chronological sequence 
the growth or affairs of the Society, nor to deal in personal mention 
except wherein it may be absolutely necessary to give emphasis to the 
facts. 

Before giving an outline of the work of this Society, it is deemed 
proper to make reference to the object of the organization. It is hoped 



46 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

and believed that the interrogation, "For what purpose?" so often asked, 
will be answered. 

In consequence of the heterogeneity of the population of the United 
States, in which the vast majority are either foreign born or of foreign 
born parents, the standard of citizenship established by the founders of 
this, the greatest, grandest and finest government ever vouchsafed to man- 
kind, was rapidly deteriorating. The observance of the days which 
marked events and men and which were revered by our forefathers, were 
passing into decline and disfavor. 

Who could re-establish this standard of citizenship or awaken a 
renewed interest in the observance of our National holidays ? None so 
well as could the descendants of Revolutionary ancestors. Most cer- 
tainly the founders of the first organization so determined, for this 
thought is made the keynote of the constitution of every Society of the 
Sons of the Revolution which has been instituted. Xo religious creed 
is recognized. No partisan politics have any place in its affairs. The 
requirements for membership are a good moral character and proof of 
descent from an ancestor who loyally supported the cause of the Patriots, 
either as a soldier, sailor, marine, or civil officer during the Revolution, 
and who remained loyal to the end of the war. These requirements have 
been strictly adhered to by the California Society as will be found in the 
ensuing pages of this volume. 

This Society has been peculiarly fortunate in having enrolled among 
its members three gentlemen, three real sons of Revolutionary soldiers. 
One of these, Mr. George Washington Peachy, died in 1910 at the age of 
eight-one years. The other two, Judge Lewis Patrick Phillips and Mr. 
Francis Marion Lemmon, each of whom has passed his four score years, 
are still living and honored. 

Situated as California is thousands of miles away from the historic 
places made famous by the Revolution, it is denied the quickening of 
patriotic sentiment which is aroused by them but none are unmindful 
of duty and all keep fresh the enthusiasm obtained in the observance of 
days made glorious by heroic ancestors. 

This Society has been most loyal and determined in its efforts tend- 
ing to the general good of the organization. At a meeting of the Society 
held on the anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill, June 17th, 1894, 
a memorial to the Congress of the United States was adopted, asking 
that body to publish the Archives of the Revolution, those precious docu- 
ments which were in the possession of the various departments of the 
government. From all the information that was obtainable they appa- 
rently were in a condition of chaotic neglect and fast becoming illegible. 
This memorial was sent to the senators and representatives in Congress. 
At the meeting of the General Society held in Boston, Massachusetts, in 
April, 1895, this Memorial was committed to a special committee, and 
since has been continuously before the General Society as an object for 
its attention. At the Annual Meeting of the California Society in 1913, 
by resolution it then adopted a memorial to the General Society, in which 



HISTORY, CALIFORNIA SOCIETY 47 

all the State Societies were invited to join, praying that the General 
Society publish a register of the membership of all the State Societies, 
the same to be carried out along the lines of this volume. The memorial 
failed in its purpose, but it is hoped that the seed sown by its promul- 
gation may yet spring up and bear fruit. 

During the year 1913, the Board of Directors, the managing body 
of this Society, determined upon a campaign having for its end an in- 
crease of membership. This campaign continued and resulted in the 
membership being increased more than two-fold. With the income derived 
from that increase, the library was enlarged by more than three hundred 
volumes at an expenditure of over one thousand dollars. 

As an evidence of the patriotism and military ardor of this Society, 
it should be stated that during the Spanish-American War, although the 
membership was small, many of its members served with distinction in 
both establishments of the army, the Regular and Volunteer, and in the 
Navy. A number of the gentlemen who have joined this Society since 
that time are veterans of that war. 

The California Society is honored by having two of its members 
officers of the General Society at the present time Mr. James Mortimer 
Montgomery as General President, and Col. Holdridge Ozro Collins as 
General Historian. These gentlemen are life members of this Society 
and are both members also of the New York Society. 

Before closing this history and with no desire of intrenching upon 
the prerogative of the editor-in-chief, Mr. Orra Eugene Monnette, I wish 
to say something as to the design and scope of this work. 

It is not to give prominence to the name of the member, but to show 
the right in which his name appears, the name and record of the Revolu- 
tionary ancestor, and to give his lineage the links of evidence by which 
all the names will be preserved in history. 

We boast not of whom we are: we simply point to our ancestors. 
We had nothing to do with our being born our being here is the accident 
of birth. We did not found this government, the most glorious of all 
governments. It is our heritage, and we have taken our pledge to keep 
it inviolate as handed to us, the freest and most to be honored of all the 
governments of earth a nation blessed of God. 

As we read the pages of our country's history, we find them illum- 
ined and made brilliant by a light that comes from the graves of our 
dead heroic ancestors. We call it 

The Wondrous Light 

Let the wondrous light, that glimmers 
From the graves of heroes dead, 
Shine as a radiant nimbus 
Above the Sovereign head 
Of every true American, 



48 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

Who stands for Truth and Right 
In the warfare that is waging 
Against oppression's might; 
And may this light grow brighter 
As the nation still shall grow, 
And spots now dark forever fade 
In the radiance of its glow. 
May this Nation grow in greatness 
Till all the world shall ring 
With praises for a nation 
Where each man is a King.

Instituted May 8th, 1893 Incorporated May 15th, 1893 



CONSTITUTION 
Preamble 

The California Society, Sons of the Revolution, has been incorpo- 
rated for the purposes of perpetuating among their descendants the 
memory of those brave men who perilled their lives and fortunes in the 
War of the Revolution to wrest the American Colonies from British domin- 
ion ; for the collection and preservation of manuscripts, records and docu- 
ments relating to that contest for independence ; for the inspiration among 
its members and their children of the patriotic spirit of their forefathers ; 
for the inculcation of a love of country and veneration for the principles 
which are the foundation of our National unity, and for the promotion 
of social intercourse and cordial fellowship among its members. 

We acknowledge the supremacy of the General Society in all matters 
which have been, or which shall be delegated to it, and we pledge our- 
selves to observe and maintain all laws, rules and regulations for the gov- 
ernment and control of the United States Societies which shall be law- 
fully prescribed by the General Society. 

ARTICLE I 

Name of Society 

This Society shall be known by the name, style and title of "Sons 
of the Revolution." 

ARTICLE II 

Membership 

Any male person, above the age of twenty-one years, shall be eligible 
to membership in the Sons of the Revolution who is descended from an 
ancestor, as the propositus, who, either as a military, naval or marine 
officer, soldier, sailor or marine, or official in the service of any one of 
the thirteen original Colonies or States, or of the National Government 
representing or composed of those Colonies or States, assisted in estab- 
lishing American Independence during the War of the Revolution be- 
tween the 19th day of April, 1775, when hostilities commenced, and the 
19th day of April, 1783, when they were ordered to cease. 



52 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

PROVIDED: That when the claim of eligibility is based on the 
service of an ancestor in the "minute men" or "militia," it must be sat- 
isfactorily shown that such ancestor was actually called into the service 
of the State or the United States, and performed garrison or field duty; 
and 

PROVIDED FURTHER: That when the claim of eligibility is 
based on the service of an ancestor as a "sailor" or "marine," it must in 
like manner be shown that such service was other than shore duty and 
regularly performed in the Continental Navy, or the Navy of one of 
the original thirteen States, or on an armed vessel, other than a merchant 
ship, which sailed under letters of marque and reprisal, and that such 
ancestor of the applicant was duly enrolled in the ship's company, either 
as an officer, seaman, or otherwise than as a passenger; and 

PROVIDED FURTHER: That when the claim of eligibility is 
based on the service of an ancestor as an "official," such service must 
have been performed in the civil service of the United States, or of one 
of the thirteen original States, and must have been sufficiently important 
in character to have rendered the official specially liable to arrest and 
imprisonment, the same as a combatant, if captured by the enemy, as 
well as liable to the conviction of treason against the Government of 
Great Britain. 

Service in the ordinary duties of a civil office, the performance of 
which did not particularly and effectively aid the American cause, shall 
not constitute eligibility. 

In the construction of this article, the Volunteer Aides-de-Camp of 
General Officers in Continental Service, who were duly announced as 
such and who actually served in the field during a campaign, shall be 
comprehended as having performed qualifying service. 

The civil officials and military forces of the State of Vermont, during 
the War of the Revolution, shall also be comprehended in the same manner 
as if they had belonged to one of the thirteen original States. 

No service of an ancestor shall be deemed as qualifying service for 
membership in the SONS OF THE REVOLUTION, where such an- 
cestor, after assisting in the cause of American Independence, shall have 
subsequently either adhered to the enemy, or failed to maintain an honor- 
able record throughout the War of the Revolution. 

No person shall be admitted unless he be eligible under one of the 
provisions of this Article, nor unless he be of good moral character and 
be judged worthy of becoming a member.

desired.

Expulsion and Suspension. 

The Board of Directors shall have power to expel any enrolled mem- 
ber of this Society who, by a conduct inconsistent with a gentleman and 
a man of honor, or by an opposition to the interests of the community 
in general or of this Society in particular, may render himself unworthy 
to continue a member, or who shall persistently transgress, or, without 
good excuse, wilfully neglect or fail in the performance of any obligation 
enjoined by the Constitution or By-Laws, or any standing Rule of this 
Society. Provided, that such member shall have received at least ten 
days' notice of the complaint preferred against him, and of the time and 
place for hearing the same, and have been thereby afforded an opportunity 
to be heard in person. 

Whenever the cause of expulsion shall not have involved turpitude 
nor moral unworthiness, any member thus expelled, may, upon the unani- 
mous recommendation of the Board of Directors, but not otherwise, be 
restored to membership by the Society at any meeting. 

The Board of Directors shall also have power to drop from the 
roll the name of any enrolled member of the Society who shall be at least

being thus dropped, his membership shall cease and determine; but he 
may be restored to membership at any time by the Board of Directors, on

BY-LAWS, CALIFORNIA SOCIETY 65

by reason of absence, sickness, disability, or other cause, of which the 
Board of Directors shall be the sole judge, said Board of Directors shall 
have the power by a majority vote of said Board to declare the office 
of such officer to be vacant.

Disqualification. 

No person who may be enrolled as a member in this Society shall be

substantiate such claim, or not properly authenticated. The Society, or 
the Board of Directors, may, at any time after thirty days' notice to such 
person to properly substantiate or authenticate his claim, require the 
Secretary to erase his name from the list of members, and such person 
shall thereupon cease to be a member; provided, he shall have failed or 
neglected to comply satisfactorily with such notice. 

Where the Board of Directors shall direct the erasure of a person's 
name for a cause comprehended under this section, such person shall have 
a right of appeal to the next annual meeting of the Society; but he shall 
not be restored to membership unless by a vote of three-fourths of the 
members present on that occasion, or at a subsequent meeting to which 
the consideration of the appeal may have been specifically postponed.

SECTION XXIII. 
Applications for Membership; Elections Thereunder* 

All applications for membership shall be filed with the Secretary of 
the Society and be received and considered by the Board of Directors, 
providing that the same are in form, initiation fee paid and subscription 
to the declaration made as provided in Articles V and VI of the Consti- 
tution of this Society. 

The Board of Directors shall not be required to consider said appli- 
cations at a formal meeting of said Board, unless some question shall 
arise as to the interpretation of the eligibility clauses of the Constitution, 
in which event a formal meeting shall be held for its consideration. 

The Board of Directors by vote at a formal meeting thereof or by 
vote as individual members of said Board of Directors shall have power to 
admit an applicant to membership in the Society, if he be found by them 
to be eligible under the Constitution of this Society; provided, however, 
that five affirmative votes shall be required to elect and two negative 
votes to reject an applicant. 

Upon the receipt of an application for membership, the Secretary or 
Assistant Secretary shall immediately notify each member of the Board 
of Directors by written or printed notice (which may be mailed) of the 
pendency of said application and request his vote thereupon; and, upon 
the failure of any Director to return a vote within five days thereafter or 
to be present at a formal meeting of the Board at which said application 
shall be considered, the vote of such Director shall be recorded in the 
affirmative. 

The endorsement of the application for membership by the President 
or a Vice-President and by the Secretary or Assistant Secretary subsequent 
to the taking of a vote upon any application shall be sufficient to consti- 
tute an election of the applicant. 

Attention is directed to resolution adopted by the Board of Directors, relative 
hereto, which is recited at the conclusion of these By-Laws. 

SECTION XXIV. 
Honorable Councillor. 

There is hereby created in this Society an official designation of "Hon- 
orable Councillor," which shall be an office of honorary distinction solely, 
carrying with it neither authority, nor obligation, nor duty, in itself, but 
it shall be awarded by the Board of Directors as a reward of merit, to 
any member of the Society, who shall be eligible thereto, subject, how- 
ever, to a previous recommendation therefor or a subsequent ratification 
thereof by the Society. 

No one shall be eligible to such an award unless he shall have been 
either a charter or a life member of the Society, the latter for a period 
of at least five years, and shall likewise be in good standing at the time 
of appointment; and, in addition, either shall have performed long con- 
tinued and faithful service as an officer of the Society, or shall have 
bestowed some special honor or distinction upon it, or shall have achieved 
some notable and patriotic fame as a citizen of the commonwealth. 

The award shall continue in effect during the life of the appointee 
or during good behavior, but may be rescinded by the Board of Directors, 
for -cause, either upon its own initiative or the direction of the Society, 
subject, however, to the filing with the Secretary of the Society of a 
formal and verified statement of any member setting forth any grounds 
of alleged misbehavior. 

Further, the Board of Directors shall have power to make such award 
annually and the name or names of the Honorable Councillors then in 
office shall be printed in all publications of the Society as a "Roll of 



BY-LAWS, CALIFORNIA SOCIETY 69 

Honor" thereof. Upon request of the Board of Directors or by action 
of the Society, any one of said Councillors may be requested to act with 
said Board in an advisory capacity, at any time. 



As supplementary to the mode of procedure relative to the applica- 
tions for membership as provided in Section XXIII, of the By-Laws, the 
Board of Directors, upon March 27th, 1914, adopted the following reso- 
lution, for the guidance of the officers of the Society and particularly the 
Membership Committee: 

RESOLUTION 

RESOLVED, That, in pursuance of the requirements of the Consti- 
tution and By-Laws applicable to the admission of new members, the 
determination of their eligibility and qualifications, and the powers and 
duties of the Board of Directors in connection therewith, and further, in 
supplementing the particular provisions of Section XXIII of the By-Laws 
recently adopted by the Society relating to the method of taking action 
upon applications for membership in the Society, 

There shall be annually elected by the Board of Directors a standing 
Committee to be known as the Membership Committee, composed of three 
members of said Board, excepting the Secretary or Assistant Secretary, 
who shall not be eligible thereto, whose special duty shall be to examine 
all original applications for membership and all supplementary records 
presented by members and to pass upon the same upon two points, namely: 
whether or not the Revolutionary ancestor of the applicant or member 
performed the Revolutionary services requisite within the meaning of 
the Constitution of the Society, and whether or not such services are 
sufficiently authenticated by record, printed or other evidentiary authority. 

It shall be the duty of the Secretary or Assistant Secretary upon the 
filing of an application for membership, or of a supplementary record, 
to secure the approval thereof by at least two. members of said Member- 
ship Committee, prior to any recordation thereof. 

Said Membership Committee shall not have the power to reject any 
application for membership or any supplementary record, but in the event 
any one of said Committee request it or, for any reason, the necessary 
approval be not given thereupon, the same shall be referred to the Board 
of Directors to be considered and determined upon at a formal meeting 
of said Board. 

But, nothing herein shall change the mode of procedure as pro- 
vided in Section XXIII of the By-Laws, but shall be only supplementary 
thereto.

STATE OF CALIFORNIA 



How to Become a Member 

of the 
Society, Sons of the Revolution, 

in the 
State of California 



It is the desire of the Society that the representative and sturdy type 
of citizenship of California shall seek admission to membership in this 
Society. With that thought in view a preliminary statement follows as 
to the origin and nature of the Society, and attention is particularly called 
to the formulated purposes of the organization: 

The Society of Sons of the Revolution was instituted upon the 
anniversary of Washington's Birthday, 1876, at the City of New York, 
in the long room of Fraunces' Tavern, and at the present time there 
is an organized Society in most of the States. 

The General Society is composed of delegates from each State 
Society. 

The State Societies are independent in all matters relating to 
their own government, subject only to the Constitution and delegated 
powers of the General Society. 

This society is non-sectarian, non-secret, and non-partisan in 
religious and political matters and its purposes are stated in the Con- 
stitution, viz.: 

"The California Society, Sons of the Revolution, has been incor- 
porated for the purposes of perpetuating among their descendants, 
the memory of the brave men who periled their lives and fortunes in 
the War of the Revolution to wrest the American Colonies from 
British dominion; for the collection and preservation of manuscripts, 
records and documents relating to that contest for Independence; for 
the inspiration among its members and their children of the patriotic 
spirit of their forefathers; for the inculcation of a love of country 
and veneration for the principles which are the foundation of our 
National unity, and the promotion of social intercourse and cordial 
fellowship among its members." 

To become a member of this Society the applicant must be twenty-one 
years of age, possessing a good, moral character, and particularly of good 
standing in the community. His application for membership must be 
prepared along the lines of the Constitutional requirements for member- 
ship, which are hereinafter given, should be in the form prescribed by the 
Society, and must receive the endorsement and recommendation of two 
members of the Society. 

1. Genealogical Research. 

To those who are not familiar with the methods of securing genealogi- 
cal data and establishing family history, the field of research appears to 
be unlimited, uncertain and so difficult of exploration that it presents 



98 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

some discouraging features to the novitiate. However, genealogy is an 
exact science and the hand-maiden of historical investigation, offering 
much of interest and certain rewards for its faithful and conscientious 
pursuit. It has become so popularized in the last twenty-five years and 
the lineages of so large a number of families, descendants from the Colo- 
nial Period, established, that to any one possessing the time and patience, 
and whose ancestors were in America prior to and during the Revolu- 
tionary Period, the problem of finding a Revolutionary progenitor, whose 
service may not even have been preserved in family record or by indefinite 
tradition, or of establishing the authentic record of Revolutionary service 
of an ancestor, whose name as a soldier or sailor has been preserved in 
the family annals as a matter of special distinction, is not, after all, so 
impossible of solution, or necessarily beyond the grasp of any one becom- 
ing interested, even though his information and lines of research may at 
first seem so limited. 

If possessing no previous knowledge of genealogical research, the 
wisest and least expensive course is to consult a friend who may possess 
such knowledge or any officer of a patriotic or genealogical society, who 
will be pleased to offer aid and suggestions. There are also reputable 
professional genealogists whose services can be secured at a moderate 
expenditure of money. 

If you have a relative who has already become a member of any one 
of the Revolutionary patriotic societies, such as; Sons of the Revolution, 
Sons of the American Revolution, Daughters of the American Revolution, 
Daughters of the Revolution, Society of the Cincinnati and Order of 
Founders and Patriots, or if there is in print a published genealogy of 
your family, the basis for your record is laid. Securing the benefit of 
this information, your procedure is comparatively easy. If neither source 
of information exist, then your genealogical foundations must be estab- 
lished from original sources. 

To the class who are compelled, because no one has pioneered before 
them in searching out their family history, to explore entirely new lines 
of research, a word of caution is not only appropriate but will prove bene- 
ficial. A personal experience of some fifteen years had by the writer as a 
genealogist verifies the importance of this suggestion. The tendency of a 
beginner is to turn too soon to printed books and records, before fully 
exhausting the information to be found within his own family and among 
his own relatives. Postponing the search of outside authorities and the 
examination of books, the VERY FIRST THING TO DO is to start with 
oneself, birth, marriage and children, with a care always as to dates and 
locations, and writing this out in convenient form, let this serve as the 
foundation upon which the superstructure of genealogical history is to be 
builded. THE NEXT STEP is the placing upon this foundation in the 
nature of a corner-stone, of your parentage, correlating the same facts of 
births, marriages, and children. THE THIRD STEP is the following of 
the same course with respect to your FOUR grand-parents, neglecting in 
no instance the names of all children in each generation, for even the 
names may possess some signification or suggestion as to their origin. 
THE NEXT STEP is repeating the same process of the earlier generation 
with your EIGHT great-grand-parents, and so on, tracing YOUR LINE- 
AGE back to the generations antedating and co-existent with the Revolu- 
tionary Period of 1775 to 1783, and the man who is under forty years of 
age at this time, will be surprised to learn, if he has not thought of it 
previously, that he has sixteen great-great-grandparents who were possibly 
living at that Period, and further thirty-two great-great-great-grandparents 
likewise of possible existence then, one-half of whom were males, any one 
or more of the latter of whom were of sufficient age to have been partici- 
pants in the War of the American Revolution. And, when it is understood 
that boys of the age of ten years served, and very old men, reaching to the 
ages of seventy-five and eighty years, there is possible the discovery of 






HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER 



authentic records of Revolutionary service of from sixteen to twenty of 
such ancestors. This possibility does not suggest itself until some thought 
is given to the proposition, but when fully understood certainly minimizes 
the chances of failure in pursuing a careful and painstaking genealogical 
research. 

Therefore, following along the lines thus laid down, TRACE YOUR 
LINEAGE BACKWARD, securing the necessary information within your 
own family sources, using family records and traditions as your guides. 
When this field has been patiently exhausted, you will have saved yourself 
much time and expense in the long run and will then be justified in turning 
to published and original probate and land records of state, town and 
county, as well as cemetery records and tombstone inscriptions. Then, 
other sources of information present themselves, as one suggests another, 
until you shall have to your entire satisfaction established YOUR LINE- 
AGE BACK to the male ancestors who lived during the Revolutionary 
Period. In this search avoid the confusion existing from the fact that 
father and son very frequently bore the same name, and be sure of the 
identification of each with the locality and the record found. Further, 
the variations in the spelling of names of German, Dutch and French an- 
cestors, arising from phonetic influences in spelling, should be ever kept 
in mind, for many record searches otherwise baffling have been rendered 
successful by clear evidence that the family names have undergone many 
changes in spelling since 1775. 

Having found these ancestors under search and, particularly if several 
have been so established, the finding of the authentic records of Revolu- 
tionary service is made probable and reduces itself to a matter of verifica- 
tion. 

Original papers exhibiting this service, such as commissions, dis- 
charges, muster-rolls, etc., very frequently exist in the family archives. 
These sufficiently prove the service and are accepted as authority. Certain 
miscellaneous original manuscripts may be in existence, of which certified 
copies can be secured and presented as proof. If these show the service, 
they will suffice. Tradition is not available in proof, except as a guide in 
search, and the record, to which reference is made, must be fixed in original 
sources and not have its authenticity based upon the statements or deduc- 
tions of the applicant or genealogists. 

At this point in the order of explanation and suggested guidance, a 
careful examination of the constitutional requirements for membership 
in the Society, Sons of the Revolution, in the State of Califorina, should 
be undertaken. These appear in the following presentation, to which has 
been added a "Bibliography and Record Sources of Revolutionary Service," 
which should be of material assistance in preparing papers for application 
for membership. 

2. Constitutional Requirements for Membership. 

Any male person above the age of twenty-one years shall be eligible to 
membership in the SONS OF THE REVOLUTION, who is descended from 
an ancestor, as the propositus, who, either as a military, naval, or marine 
officer, soldier, sailor, or marine, or official in the service of any one of 
the thirteen original Colonies or States, or of the National Government 
representing or composed of those Colonies or States, assisted in establish- 
ing American Independence during the War of the Revolution, between 
the 19th day of April, 1775, when hostilities commenced, and the 19th day 
of April, 1783, when they were ordered to cease. 

Provided: That when the claim of eligibility is based on the service 
of an ancestor in the "minute-men" or "militia," it must be satisfactorily 
shown that such ancestor was actually called into the service of the State 
or United States, and performed garrison or field duty; and 



100 SOCIETY. SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 



Provided further: That when the claim of eligibility is based on 
the service of an ancestor as a "sailor" or "marine," it must in like manner 
be shown that such service was other than shore duty and regularly per- 
formed in the Continental Navy of one of the original thirteen States, or 
an armed vessel, other than a merchant ship, which sailed under letters 
of marque or reprisal, and that such ancestor of the applicant was duly 
enrolled in the ship's company, either as an officer, seaman, or otherwise 
than as a passenger; and 

Provided, further: That when the claim of eligibility is based on 
the service of an ancestor as an "official," such service must have been 
performed in the civil service of the United States, or of one of the thir- 
teen original States, and must have been sufficiently important in character 
to have rendered the official specially liable to arrest and imprisonment, 
the same as a combatant, if captured by the enemy, as well as liable to 
conviction of treason against the government of Great Britain. 

Service in the ordinary duties of a civil office, the performance of 
which did not particularly and effectively aid in the American Cause shall 
not constitute eligibility. 

In the construction of this article, the Volunteer Aides-de-Camp of 
General Officers in Continental Service, who were duly announced as such, 
and who actually served in the field during a campaign, shall be compre- 
hended as having performed qualifying service. 

The civil officials and military forces of the State of Vermont, during 
the War of the Revolution, shall also be comprehended in the same manner 
as if they had belonged to one of the thirteen original States. 

No service of an ancestor shall be deemed as qualifying service for 
membership in the SONS OF THE REVOLUTION where such ancestor, 
after assisting in the cause of American Independence, shall have subse- 
quently either adhered to the enemy, or failed to maintain an honorable 
record throughout the War of the Revolution. 

No person shall be admitted unless he is eligible under one of the 
provisions of this Article, nor unless he is of good moral character and is 
judged worthy of becoming a member. 

Every application for membership shall be made in writing, subscribed 
by the applicant and approved by two members over their signatures. 
Applications shall contain, or be accompanied by, proof of eligibility, and 
such applications and proofs shall be submitted to the Board of Directors, 
who shall have full power to determine the qualifications of the applicant. 

Payment of the initiation fee and subscription to the declaration 
required by the Constitution of this Society shall be a pre-requisite of 
membership. 

The initiation fee is ten dollars; the annual dues, five dollars, which 
shall be payable on the first day of January in every year, becoming delin- 
quent on April first. The payment at one time of fifty dollars thence- 
forth exempts the member so paying from the payment of annual dues. 

Any member who may contribute two hundred dollars to the "Perma- 
nent Fund" of the Society shall be exempt from the payment of annual 
dues, and this exemption shall extend in perpetuity to his lineal successors 
in membership from the same propositus, one at a time, who may be 
selected for such exemption by the Society. 

Applications for membership must be made in duplicate upon blanks 
furnished by this Society. 

In preparing applications for membership, attention to the following 
suggestions is recommended, in order to facilitate the work of the Board 
of Directors: 

1. State Revolutionary and biographical record of ancestor fully 
and concisely. 



HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER 101 

2. Give authority for each act of Revolutionary service of ancestor. 

3. The Society does not accept Cyclopaedias, Genealogical works, or 
Town or County histories except such as contain Rosters as authorities 
for service, but suggests reference to the records, in print or manuscript, 
of the several States, and of the United States Departments of War, of 
the Navy, of State, and of the Bureau of Pensions. 

4. In referring to printed works, the volume and page should in all 
cases be correctly given. 

5. References to authorities in manuscript must be accompanied by 
certified copies, and authentic family papers must be submitted, if required. 

6. Every application and duplicate must be signed by the applicant, 
and sworn to, or affirmed, before a Notary Public, or other officer author- 
ized to administer an oath. 

3. Bibliography and Record Sources of Revolutionary Service. 

Contrary to a possibly preconceived idea in the minds of one not 
familiar with the subject, complete rolls or lists of soldiers, sailors and 
civil participants in the Revolutionary War, with details of service, do not 
exist. However, the bibliography of the history and events of the Revo- 
lution, together with more recently compiled lists and records of the 
soldiers, sailors and other patriots is quite extensive, and many sources 
of information are available for investigation. 

Therefore, in the preparation of your application papers, the follow- 
ing directions to authoritive guides and standards will be almost invalu- 
able. 

a. General. 

There are many histories of the Revolution, memoirs of its officers, 
chronologies of its events and recollections of its participants, published 
from 1780 down to the year 1860, now nearly all out of print, and there 
are later city, town, county and local histories, all of which may be of 
value in tending to establish the record under search, but the merit of 
which as an authority must be scrutinized as to the character of the state- 
ment of Revolutionary service, and particularly so if not susceptible of 
proof in other ways. Hence, this field of Revolutionary literature, which 
extends to several hundreds of volumes to be found in the more complete 
public libraries, is to be covered here. 

Original records in the possession of the United States Government, 
in its several Departments and offices, together with its printed publica- 
tions; the same of the several States comprising the original thirteen 
Colonies and some of the Middle Western States; the original records of 
cities and towns, as particularly in Massachusetts and other New England 
States, and of counties, as particularly in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and 
Virginia; and all printed books and compilations, published under recog- 
nized authority and for the special purpose of preserving Revolutionary 
records, furnish the more important and main sources of authority. Many 
historical societies and genealogical organizations of repute have published 
authentic material, which can be safely used, and without tabulation, the 
more prominent, such as the N. E. Historical and Genealogical Register, 
and The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record may be cited. 
The "Spirit of '76," a magazine long since out of print, contained valuable 
lists and data. The year books, registers and compilations of the various 
patriotic organizations based upon the Revolutionary War are suggested 
sources. The monthly magazine published by the Daughters of the Ameri- 
can Revolution has presented many original records. Its reports to the 
Smithsonian Institution, made under an Act of Congress, possess a certain 



102 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

measure of authority. Its published Lineage Books are invaluable, when 
based upon proper references. More than 100,000 have joined the Na- 
tional Society of the D. A. R. and its present membership exceeds 90,000. 

b. Governmental. 

In the United States War Department, in charge of the Adjutant 
General, are to be found all muster and pay rolls of soldiers in the posses- 
sion of the government. Abstracts or certificates of service will be fur- 
nished to applicants who comply with certain requirements in asking for 
information. 

In the Bureau of Pensions, a division of the Department of the 
Interior of the U. S. Government, are on file the claim papers of nearly 
100,000 Revolutionary soldiers and their widows. The U. S. Commissioner 
of Pensions, Washington, D. C., will furnish abstracts or certificates of 
service upon proper request. 

Various lists of pensioners have been published by authority of the 
Government, based upon reports of its various Departments, and the most 
notable of these is "Pierce's Register," printed in 1786, of which but three 
or four copies appear to be extant. The original manuscript is in the 
Treasury Department of the United States, and in the Library of Congress 
are preserved two printed copies. It exhibits nearly 100,000 certificates 
issued for payment of soldiers for services in the war. A reprint of this 
valuable work is being urged. Certain publications of the government 
showing the pensioners and where resident were issued in 1820, 1835 
(pension rolls, by States) and 1841 (Census of pensioners). Vol. 6 of the 
Minnesota Historical Collections, pp. 502 et seq. gives lists of pensioners 
of the United States for 1813.

The Liberty Bell 
The Society's First Journalistic Endeavor 



Under the very efficient supervision of the Publicity Com- 
mittee of the Society, composed of Messrs. Pierson Worrall 
Banning, Chairman, Robert Le Roy Beardsley, and Frank 
Hervey Pettingell, upon March 1 , 1915, there was issued and 
distributed to the membership of the Society the initial number 
of Vol. I, of "The Liberty Bell." This was the Society's 
first attempt to print a current and continuous publication, which 
might reflect in its expression something of the activity, growth 
and welfare of the organization. It has been so well received 
and invited so much favorable comment for its continuation that 
a reproduction of this first issue, as a history marker for the 
Society, has been thought advisable. Therefore, it follows, in 
somewhat the same form in which it appeared, to be thereby 
the more permanently preserved in this publication. Editor.

SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 
IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA 



Vol. I 



Los Angeles, Marct, 1915 



No. 1 



A Foreword 

This publication is presented with 
the hope that a greater interest may 
be aroused among the members of this 
Society and their friends, and as it is 
found advisable other issues will ap- 
pear. 

Some of the purposes of this Society 
with a short resume of its history fol- 
lows. It should be an incentive for 
every member to make every effort to 
bring in as many new members as pos- 
sible. In your family and among your 
acquaintances you no doubt have friends 
who belong to other State Societies who 
if properly approached would be glad 
of an opportunity to affiliate with us. 
This is your opportunity to do what we 
greatly need at this time. There are 
also many desirable, eligible persons, 
not' members of any Society, who would 
doubtless gladly accept an invitation 
to join with us. 



Sons of the Revolution 

The Society of the Sons of the Revo- 
lution was instituted in the State of 
New York, on the anniversary of the 
birthday of Washington, February 22, 
1876, and reorganized on the present 
basis December 4, 1883. 

Following New York, similar socie- 
ties were formed in several states, and 
finally a national organization was pci- 
fected April 19, 1890, under the name 
of "The General Societv of the Sons of 



the Revolution," with headquarters in 
New York City. The General Society 
embraces the various State organiza- 
tions, and the objects, government, 
work and requirements for all the so- 
cieties are the same. The Society is 
now well established by State organiza- 
tions in most of the Eastern and many 
of the Western States, and is rapidly 
growing. 

The necessity for and the purposes of 
the Sons of the Revolution are thus 
stated in the Constitution of the General 
Society : 

"It has become evident from the de- 
cline of proper celebration of such Na- 
tional holidays as the Fourth of July, 
Washington's Birthday and the like, 
that proper interest in the events and 
men of the War of the Revolution is 
less than in the earlier days of the Re- 
public." It attributes this failing inter- 
est "not so much to lapse of time as to 
the neglect on the part of descendants of 
Revolutionary heroes to perform their 
duty of keeping before the public mind 
the memory of the services of their an- 
cestors, and of the times in which they 
lived, and of the principles for which 
they contended." 

Objects 

The objects of the Society are stated, 
as follows, in the preamble to the Con- 
stitution : 

"To perpetuate the memory of men 
who, in military, naval or civil service, 
by their acts or counsel, achieved Amer- 



The Liberty Bell 



ican Independence ; to promote and 
assist in the proper celebration of the 
anniversaries of Washington's Birth- 
day, the battles of Lexington and Bun- 
ker Hill, the Fourth of July, the Capit- 
ulations of Saratoga and Yorktown, the 
Evacuation of New York by the British 
Army, as a relinquishment of territorial 
sovereignty, and other prominent events 
related to or connected with the War of 
the Revolution; to collect and secure 
for preservation the manuscript rolls, 
records and other documents and me- 
morials relating to that war; to inspire 
among the members and their descend- 
ants the patriotic spirit of their fore- 
fathers; to inculcate in the community 
in general sentiments of Nationality 
and respect for the principles for which 
the patriots of the Revolution contend- 
ed ; to assist in the commemorative cele- 
bration of other great historical events 
of National importance, and to promote 
social intercourse and the feeling of 
fellowship among its members." 



Our New Year Book 

The California Society is now com- 
pleting a Year Book that will probably 
equal or lead any such publication ever 
gotten out by any individual Society of 
the Sons of the Revolution. This val- 
uable record and reference book not 
only gives the various lines of ancestry 
in the Revolutionary War for each 
member as qualified, but presents the 
dates of birth and death of each gen- 
eration. The net result is that there 
are now listed for reference nearly six 
hundred Revolutionary War ancestors 
of the members of this Society. 

Many names of unlisted South Caro- 
lina soldiers never before published will 
appear in this edition.. 

This work was inspired by Mr. Orra 
E. Monnette, who, with the co-opera- 



tion of Mr. Leon L. French, has com- 
piled a most valuable and authentic 
record. The publishing of this work 
will cost much more than anticipated. 

It is to be hoped that the members of 
this Society will evidence their appre- 
ciation of the arduous work on the 
part of the committee, embracing many 
days and nights of hard work at great 
inconvenience and sacrifice to their 
own personal affairs, by subscribing for 
one or more copies. The edition is 
limited. 



Free speech is a precious right, and 
so is free action. But the tongue has 
no more right than the hand to abuse 
its freedom. 



Prominent Visitors 

The General Registrar of the Gen- 
eral Society of the Sons of the Revolu- 
tion, Hon. George Eltweed Pomeroy of 
Toledo, is stopping at Hotel Hunting- 
ton, Pasadena. 

Another prominent visitor in our 
midst is Mr. Robert Taylor Varnum, 
of the New York Society. He is now 
the guest of Mr. H. E. Huntington. 

Our General Secretary, Prof. William 
Libbey, of Princeton, N. J., writes that 
he and Governor Fielder, with other 
members of the Governor's Staff (31 in 
all) will be in Los Angeles on May 15. 



"Breathes there a man with soul 

so dead 

Who never to himself hath said, 
This is my own, my native 

land; 
Whose heart hath ne'er within 

him burned 
As home his footsteps he hath 

turned 

i From wandering on a foreign 
strand ?" 



The Liberty Bell 



New Members 

It is with pride that this Society is 
able to state that during the past year 
the membership has almost doubled. 
This is one indication that the interest 
in the work of this Society is rapidly in- 
creasing. 

The group of hard workers for the 
greater development of this Society, 
continues to press its efforts upon all 
sources that can be reached for a fur- 
ther growth of membership this year. 
At present the Society has a member- 
ship of about two hundred, and it is 
hoped that the next few months will 
show an additional one hundred or 
more new names enrolled- 

The New Year Book of this Society 
should prove a great incentive towards 
interesting new members. It will en- 
able many who desire data regarding 
their ancestors to find such authenti- 
cated information within its covers. 
Thus with our growing interest, and 
the unusual facilities offered through 
our large reference library and the new 
Year Book, we should expand and 
grow as no other Society of the Sons 
of the Revolution ever has done. 

For those not in possession of the 
necessary information to enable them to 
join this Society, arrangements can be 
made through the Secretary's office to 
have family records investigated. 

Send names of prospective members 
to the Secretary of the Society, Mr. 
Robert Le Roy Beardsley. 

We want your sons and nephews to 
join. 

The California Society of the Sons 
of the Revolution was instituted May 
8th, 1893, being now twenty-one years 
old. Its Hall and Library are at 814 
San Fernando building, Los Angeles. 



Secretary's Notes 

The volume of correspondence fall- 
ing to the office of the Secretary of this 
Society is far greater than the members 
ever anticipated. During the year 1913- 
1914 the Secretary's files showed over 
twenty-five hundred letters to Senators, 
Congressmen,- Adjutant-Generals, Li- 
brarians, Patriotic Societies, Genealo- 
gists, Book Dealers, Historical Societies 
and other persons. 

During the preceding three years the 
Society did not average over forty let- 
ters a year. 

This hard work on the part of the 
Secretary has been amply repaid by the 
many volumes of books that have been 
donated to the Society library; by the 
added interest that it has produced not 
only among our members, but also 
among those interested in the work.- 

The Library of the Sons of the Revo- 
lution in the State of California now 
has over 1600 volumes of reference 
books, histories of states, counties and 
cities, genealogies and other editions 
and records many of which can not be 
obtained at any price. In connection 
with this Society, the Society of Colonial 
Wars has its library in the same place. 
The combined libraries bring a total of 
over two thousand volumes of the great- 
est value to the work of this organiza- 
tion. These books are for the use of 
the members of this Society and their 
friends. 

Hon. David Hewes, care Hewes 
ranch, near Orange, Cal., is the grand- 
son of one of the Revolutionary War 
soldiers. A short time ago he presented 
the library of this Society with a very 
fine genealogy of the Hewes family. 

The California Society of the Sons 
of the Revolution, at Los Angeles, has 
appointed the following delegates to the 
International Congress of Genealogy to 
be held at San Francisco July 26th to 



The Liberty Bell 



31st, 1915, under the auspices of the 
California Genealogical Society: Frank 
H. Pettingell, Col. Freeman G. Teed, 
Orra E. Monnette and James R. Page. 

The Triennial Report of the ITu- 
ceedings of the Meeting of the General 
Society of the Sons of the Revolution is 
ready for distribution to the members of 
the Society. Those members not yet re- 
ceiving their copy can ob'tain the same 
by calling at the Hall of the Society. 

The suggestion has been made that 
the various Patriotic Societies of Los 
Angeles form a Federation, having 
common headquarters with various 
halls, libraries and other accommoda- 



tions. 

Last Annual Meeting 

The Annual Meeting of the Cali- 
fornia Society of the Sons of the Revo- 
lution was held January 14th, 1915, at 
the hall of the Society. It was pre- 
ceded by a luncheon at the Bristol Cafe, 
where there was a large representation. 
The new officers of the Society elected 
at that time are: 

President, Arthur J. Waters; Vice- 
President, Orra E. Monnette ; Second 
rice-President, Col. Freeman G. Teed; 
Secretary, Robert Le Roy Beardsley; 
Assistant Secretary, Leon L. French; 
Treasurer, James R. Page ; Assistant 
Treasurer, Willis M. Dixon ; Registrar, 
Herbert L. Cornish; Chaplain, Rev. 
Richard D. Hollington ; Historian, 
Richard Ingalese; Marshal, Loren O. 
Crenshaw; Librarian, Willis M. 
Dixon ; Genealogist, Pierson W. Ban- 
ning. 

Notes 

There have been admitted to mem- 
bership in this Society since its organ- 
ization 264 gentlemen. 

There are on hand several applica- 
tions for membership as well as a num- 
ber of Supplemental Applications by 
members. 

This Society has had three members 
whose fathers served in the Revolu- 
tionary War. They are Lewis Patrick 
Phillips, Francis Marion Lemmon and 



George Washington Peachy, the latter 
now deceased. 

There are nine Life Members in the 
Society who are exempt from dues. Be- 
come a Life Member at the nominal cost 
of $50.

A California Book 



As was stated in the "Introductory Note" this is distinctively 
a California book. It has been sought to give it a character which 
should reflect in its pages the patriotism and distinction which 
belongs to the California people just as strongly and positively as 
to those who live in the eastern portions of the United States and 
who have some special claims on account of location to the tradi- 
tionary and actual events of the Revolutionary period. 

With this particular purpose in mind, the following "California 
Chronology" has been included in this work in order to establish 
in the minds of the reader something of the history, romance and 
partiotic intensity of this splendid State. This compilation is neither 
exhaustive nor detailed, but an attempt has been made to give the 
most important dates which have marked the most striking and 
forceful events of California history. It is worth while to note that 
this compilation is a pioneer in its field as no similar tabulation of 
the chronology of California has ever been attempted. It has been 
compiled upon the authoritative works of history as a basis and has 
received the careful criticism of the heads of the reference depart- 
ments of both the State Library at Sacramento, California, and the 
Los Angeles Public Library. As to the latter, the valuable co- 
operation and assistance of Miss Susanna C. Ott and Miss Laura 
C. Cooley should be mentioned for credit. It is believed that this 
will not only enhance the value of this publication of the Society 
but will at the same time prove a valuable handbook or compendium 
of California history of ready and convenient use and value.

1510 

Origin of the name, "California." The name California is first 
used in a romance published in Spain in 1510 and written by Garcia 
Ordonez de Montalvo, the translator of the Amadis de Gaul, and called 
Las Sergas de Esplandidn, or the Adventures of Esplandian. The Sergas 
is often referred to as the fifth book of the Amadis. In this book, which 
was an extremely popular piece of literature at the time of the conquest 
of Mexico, there is an island called California. By "California" there 
was implied insularity coupled with riches. 

"Know," says the Sergas, "that on the right hand of the Indies 
there is an island called California very close to the side of the Terrestrial 
Paradise ; and it is peopled by black women, without any man among them, 
for they live in the manner of Amazons. They were of strong and hardy 
bodies, of ardent courage, and great force. Their island was the strongest 
in the world, with its steep cliffs and rock shores. Their arms were of 
gold, and so was the harness of the wild beasts they tamed to ride, for 
in the whole island there was no metal but gold." 

1511 

Sixteenth-century cartography, at this date and later, particularly 
in the maps, "Lenox Globe" and "Sylvanus Map," persists in the idea 
of North America as a group of islands. A continuous search for a 
passage through this archipelago, leading to Asia, was the goal of sub- 
sequent voyages of discovery. It was the result of this universal notion 
that California was discovered. 

1513 

Vasco Nunez de Balboa, a Spanish navigator, crosses the Isthmus 
of Panama and discovers the Pacific Ocean. 

1515 

Francisco Pizarro, a Spanish adventurer, who had been associated 
with Vasco Nunez de Balboa, when the latter discovered the Pacific Ocean 
in 1513, visits the Pacific South American Coasts and becomes the dis- 
coverer of Peru. * copyright 1915

1519 

Alonzo Alvarez de Pineda is the first European to view the broadly 
flowing waters of the Mississippi River, but he is not generally credited 
as its discoverer, that honor being universally given to Hernando de Soto. 

1519 

Hernando Cortes, at the head of a Spanish expedition, undertakes 
an exploration and conquest of Mexico. 

1520 

Fernao de Magalhaes, whom we know as Ferdinand Magellan, a 
Portuguese navigator, discovers and makes passage of the straits after- 
wards bearing his name, and is the first European navigator to cross the 
Pacific Ocean. 

1521 

Spanish conquest of Mexico by Hernando Cortes is completed and 
the country is called "Nueva Espana," or "New Spain." 

1521 

Fernao de Magelhaes discovers the islands subsequently known as 
the Philippine Islands. Other voyages across the Pacific Ocean, with 
these islands as an objective point, had a direct bearing then, and an 
influence later, upon the history of California. 

1522 

The circumnavigation of the globe by the sailing vessels, which had 
been commenced by Fernao de Magalhaes, who was killed in 1521 during 
the voyage, is accomplished by a return to the point of previous em- 
barkation. 

1522 

Previous to Magellan's voyage the belief had existed that North 
America was an archipelago and was traversed by an inter-oceanic strait, 
later called "Anian," connecting the Gulf of St. Lawrence with the North 
Pacific Ocean. After the discovery of the Straits of Magellan and the 
voyage across the Pacific, this belief becomes popularly current and 
accepted. 

1524 

Gonzalo de Sandoval carries the following strange story to Mexico 
from Colima : "California is represented as an island, rich in pearls 
and gold. It was said to lie at a distance of ten days' journey from the 
province of Ciguatan, and to be inhabited by women only." This account 
is transmitted to the Emperor Charles V. of Spain by Hernando Cortes, 
in the Carta Quarto, de Relacion. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 115 

1524 

Francisco Pizarro, who had visited Peru in 1515, sets sail from 
Panama, with his partner, Diego de Almagro, an adventurer like him- 
self, and joining to himself Hernando de Luque, a priest possessed of 
some money, ventures upon an expedition and conquest of this rich em- 
pire of Peru ; and sailing southward from Panama, explores the southern 
Pacific Coast. The expedition proves an inspiration for a later conquest. 

1526 

Francisco Pizarro, financed by Gaspar de Espinosa, mayor of Pan- 
ama, undertakes a second expedition to Peru. Again he sails from the 
city of Panama, southward along the Peruvian coast. 

1531 to 1535 

Francisco Pizarro enters upon and completes the conquest of Peru. 
He defeats the Inca Atahualpa, and taking over the cities of Peru, with 
their immense treasures, governs the same under the title of Adelantado. 
He sent his brother, Hernando Pizarro, to Spain to obtain honors for 
the conquistadores. Returning in 1535, with various honors, Francisco 
Pizarro receives at the hands of Charles V. of Spain, the title of Marquis 
and a grant of the Chilean region for Almagro. It is noteworthy that 
during this conquest and occupation, he was accompanied by Hernando 
de Soto, who later explores the Mississippi River. 

1534 

Fortuil Ximenez, a Spanish adventurer, and mutinous pilot of Cortes' 
Expedition, discovers the eastern coast of Baja California, or Lower 
California, at what was later known as Santa Cruz Bay. Here Ximenez 
is killed. 

1535 

Hernando Cortes visits Baja California to found a colony, lands 
where Ximenez had been killed, and gives to what he thought was an 
island, the name of "Santa Cruz" (La Paz). Whether this Santa Cruz 
of Cortes was an island at the mouth of the bay, or the mainland of 
Baja California which he thought was a large island, is not known, 
although it would seem that it might be the latter, as he says: "I arrived 
at the land of Santa Cruz, I was in it and had complete knowledge of it," 
and he would not speak of so small a body as one of the islands at the 
mouth of the bay as "land." 

1536 

Hernando Cortes crosses the Gulf of California and explores the 
lower portion of Baja California and also the Pacific Coast of Mexico. 

1536 

Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, a Spanish adventurer in North Amer- 
ica, and belonging to the expedition of Panfilo de Narvaez to Florida 



116 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

in 1528, crosses the Mississippi River. He is the second European to 
do this. 

1536 

Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca appears in the City of Mexico with 
his wondrous tales of having traveled on foot three thousand miles from 
Florida, of his wanderings for many years in unknown lands, now Texas 
and Arkansas, and of the fabulous wealth, gold and precious stones, of 
the "Seven Cities of Cibola." These wonderful tales inspired Cortes 
and his military associates to the succeeding voyages and expeditions 
of discovery and exploration which resulted in the discovery of California. 

1537 

The colony founded by Hernando Cortes on Lower .California at 
Santa Cruz is a failure and abandoned. 

1539 

Fray Marcos de Niza, an Italian Missionary and explorer, under 
the direction of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, Governor of "New 
Galicia," undertakes the exploration of northwestern Mexico and be- 
comes the "Discoverer of Arizona." He is inspired by the wonderful 
tales told by Cabeza de Vaca of the rich cities of Cibola of which the 
latter had heard on his overland journey of three years previous. 

Fray Marcos de Niza makes his wonderful journey into the un- 
known wilds alone except for the negro Estevanico, who had been with 
Cabeza de Vaca, and four Indians. He returns with even more won- 
derful tales than had Cabeza de Vaca, as he had seen the cities from 
a hill, being afraid to go nearer owing to an uprising in which Estevanico 
was killed. The cities which were the lure of so many adventurous souls 
were merely the terraced houses of the Pueblo Indians. 

1539 

Francisco de Ulloa, a Spanish soldier and explorer, and a lieutenant 
of Cortes, having been with the latter in 1535, makes a Pacific coastwise 
voyage and explores the Gulf of California, proving that California is 
not an island. The first record of the name as applied to the peninsula 
appears in the map in Preciado's diary of Ulloa's expedition. 

1539 

Francisco Preciado, a Franciscan padre and diarist of the expedition 
of Francisco de Ulloa, employes the name "California" many times in his 
account of Ulloa's expedition, which is the first time the name appears in 
print as applying to an actual body of land. He discriminates between 
"Isle of California" and "Land of Santa Cruz." 

1539 

Hernando de Soto, Spanish gentleman, explorer, and adventurer, 
effects a landing at Tampa Bay and leads a remarkable expedition for 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 117 

the next three years through Florida, Georgia, perhaps through Carolina, 
Tennessee and Alabama, descending the Alabama River to Mobile Bay. 
He turns northward, and crosses Mississippi and the river of the same 
name, and explores almost to the Missouri River. 

1540 

Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, governor of New Galician, incited 
by the wonderful tales of the "Seven Cities of Cibola" and of Quivira, 
as told by Fray Marcos on his return, sets out on an expedition accom- 
panied by 300 Spaniards and 800 Indians. During the next two years 
the party explores from the Grand Canon of the Colorado across Arizona 
and New Mexico, as far north as central Kansas and east to central 
Texas. He explores the country as far north as the Moqui villages of 
Tusayan, only to find that the wonderful cities of Cibola were the 
communal houses of the Pueblo Indians. 

1540 

Hernando de Alarcon, a Spanish-American navigator, employed by 
Don Antonio de Mendoza, viceroy of New Spain, is the first European 
to touch California soil, and, entering the Gulf of California, ascends 
the Colorado River for more than one hundred miles on an expedition 
of discovery, co-operating with Coronado. 

1540 

Garcia Lopez de Cardenas, one of the captains under Coronado, 
discovers the Grand Canyon of the Colorado. 

1541 

Domingo del Castillo, one of Alarcon's pilots, re-explores the Gulf 
of California and charts its shores ; he publishes a notable map of the 
Gulf of California and the Colorado River which is recognized as both 
accurate and authoritative. He describes California as a peninsula. 

1541 

Francisco Pizarro is killed by a band of conspirators under Juan 
de Rada in vengeance for the previous execution of Almagro, his former 
associate. 

1542 

Hernando de Soto, re-discovers the Mississippi River, which has a 
direct bearing upon the subsequent Louisiana Purchase and the opening 
of the Great West to the Pacific Coast. 

1542 

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, a Portuguese navigator, is employed by 
Pedro de Alvarado, governor of Guatemala, for a voyage under the flag 
of Spain, to the north. Alvarado dies before the voyage is commenced, 



118 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

but Cabrillo is confirmed by Mendoza. He sails from Xavidad to the 
north and discovers the Bay of San Diego, thus becoming the true dis- 
coverer of California, although Alarcon in his voyage up the Colorado 
saw and probably landed on California soil. Cabrillo visits many of 
the islands along the coast, among them Santa Cruz, Catalina and San 
Clemente, and sails as far north as Point Conception. His important 
discoveries are cut short by his death. 

1542 

Alonzo de Santa Cruz, the cosmographer royal of Charles V. of Spain, 
publishes his map showing California as in the lower part insular and 
in the upper part peninsular. 

1542 

Don Antonio de Mendoza, viceroy of New Spain, sends six ships 
under Ruy Lopez de Villalobos, across the Pacific to "note the products 
of the Western Islands," and Villalobos reaching them, re-christens them 
Las Philippinas, the Philippine Islands, in honor of Philip II of Spain. 

1542 

A party of Spaniards visits the present site of Santa Fe, New 
Mexico, and finds there an abandoned Indian pueblo. 

1543 

January 3rd, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the true discoverer of Cali- 
fornia and the first explorer of its coast, dies on the Island of San 
Miguel and is probably buried there. 

1543 

Bartolome Ferrelo, a native of the Levant, and Cabrillo's chief pilot, 
takes command of the expedition and voyages as far north as the forty- 
second degree of latitude, to 'within four degrees of the mouth of the 
Columbia River. He reports the new discoveries to Cortes. 

1564 

Miguel Lopez de Lagazpi is commissioned by Luis de Velasco, Vice- 
roy of New Spain, to subdue the Philippine Islands, which he accomplishes 
in the next seven years, founding the City of Manilla. 

1568 

Bernal Diaz del Castillo, who had served as a common soldier with 
Hernando Cortes and had been in one hundred and nineteen battles, and 
who had been present at the siege and capture of the City of Mexico in 
1521, commences his notable history of the Spanish conquest. 






CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 119 

1579 

Sir Francis Drake*, an English admiral and navigator, acquires 
immense treasures as a freebooter in the Spanish harbors on the Pacific 
Coast. Sails northward on a voyage of exploration and anchors in the 
bay receiving his name, most likely the bay in the embrasure of Point 
Reyes, also identical with Cermeno's Bay. 

*This expedition of Drake was a rude awakening to the calm posses- 
sion of the Spaniards. Not only because of the danger to the Philippine 
galleons, but also because of the fate of the country over which Drake 
had raised the flag of England. 

1579 

Sir Francis Drake orders religious services to be performed with the 
Indians as witnesses in order to convey to their minds the idea of the 
everlasting God who created heaven and earth and reigned above. This 
is carried out on the shores of Drake's Bay, by the celebration of the 
English forms of service and is the first Christian rite ever held on the 
soil of California; being representative of the established church of Eng- 
land as under Queen Elizabeth, it was undeniably a Protestant service. 
The following is the quotation from the World Encompassed: "Our 

generall, with his companie fell to prayer . In the time of which 

prayer, singing psalmes and reading of certaine Chapters in the Bible, 
they sate very attentively ." 

1580 

Sir Francis Drake returns to England, his ships laden with spoils, 
and, having gained enduring glory by circumnavigating the globe (it 
being the second time this had been achieved), he enters Plymouth Harbor, 
England, having started therefrom in 1577 upon Magellan's earlier course, 
though not then contemplating a periplus of the world. 

1582 

Bernal Diaz del Castillo has lodged in manuscript form as the result 
of continuous application and prodigious labor for many years his remark- 
able history entitled Historia Verdadera de la Conquista de la Nueva 
Espana. This covers the explorations and conquests of the Spaniards 
and contains many references to California, and the author states that it 
was Cortes who first gave it the name. However, this history remains in 
manuscript form for fifty years after this date. 

1582 

Francisco Lopez Gomara, secretary and chaplain of Cortes, pub- 
lishes his Historia general de las Indias (La conquista de Mexico). 



*NOTE It is interesting to note that several members of the California Society, 
Sons of the Revolution, are decendants of Captain Francis Drake of Piscataway, New 
Jersey, a grand-nephew of the navigator, viz: Charles Hanson Scott, Harry Kisller 
Scott, Alexander McClurg Drake and Orra Eugene Monnette.

1584 

Francisco de Gali, under command of Viceroy Pedro de Moya de 
Contreras, starting from a port of New Spain, crosses the Pacific Ocean 
and returns again to within two hundred leagues of the northern coast 
of Alta California, and then traverses the coast southward, skirting the 
islands on the California shores. On this voyage, he discovers the Japan 
Current, thus making an easy return trip from the Philippine Islands to 
Mexico. This had a very important bearing on the history of California. 
As, owing to the length and dangers of the trip back from the Philippines 
it was necessary to have a port of repairs for the galleons, before reach- 
ing Mexico; and as the return by the Japan Current brought the galleons 
along the shores of California, California thus becomes a commercial 
necessity to Mexico. It was this that caused the King of Spain to desire 
California, and not her own worth, as that was never known nor appre- 
ciated by Mexico. 

1586 

Thomas Cavendish, second English circumnavigator of the globe, 
and, like Drake, ja. freebooter, sails through the straits of Magellan, preys 
upon Spanish vessels, and exploring the Pacific Coast of Mexico to Lower 
California, returns to England. He thus performs the third periplus 
of the globe. 

1587 

Pedro de Unamunu, a navigator of Macao, is sent by Viceroy Con- 
treras on an exploring expedition to discover islands to be used as refit- 
ting stations for the Philippine galleons. Unamunu does not find these 
islands nor, indeed, any others, but discovers a bay which he called Puerto 
de San Lucas, probably the Bay of Monterey, thus antedating the dis- 
covery of Viscaino by fifteen years. 

1588-1594 

"The Silver Map of the World" appears, which is assumed to be 
"A contemporary medallion commemorative of Drake's voyage (1577-80)," 
and on this map is engraved "Californoa." 

1591 

Thomas Cavendish makes another voyage to the Pacific Coast, repeat- 
ing his previous adventures and explorations. 

1592 

Juan de Fuca, a Greek navigator whose real name was Apostolos 
Valerianos, in the employ of the Viceroy of Mexico, explores the Pacific 
Coast and sails into the Bay which is now known as the Gulf of Georgia, 
and having for twenty days steered through its intricate windings and 
numerous islands, returns with a belief that the entrance to the long de- 
sired passage into the Atlantic had been found; that is, "Anian." The 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 121 

Straits into Puget Sound still bear his name. Juan de Fuca really claims 
to have made the voyage completely through the Straits of Anian from 
the Atlantic to the Pacific. This had a very great influence on the geog- 
raphy of the time. 

1595 

Sebastian Rodriguez Cermeiio, sailing from the Philippines on a 
voyage of discovery of islands to be used as ports of refuge for the Phil- 
ippine galleons, is driven into a bay behind Point Reyes, latitude 38, 
along the coast of California. This bay is probably the Francis Drake 
Bay. The ship is wrecked, but some seventy escape in a viroco and later, 
sailing down the coast, reach a "very large bay," latitude 37, which is 
very likely Monterey. Thus is added another possible "discoverer" of 
Monterey before Vizcaino. 

1597 

Gonzalo de Francia, boatswain of a ship under Sebastian Vizcaino, 
visits Santa Cruz Bay and, later (1629) writes to the King? "We came 
upon un puerto grande which was called El Puerto de la Paz, and an 
island at the mouth of it which was called Island of Women, who were 
without men, none passing over to them except in summer on rafts made 
of reeds." 

1598 

Juan de Oiiate, a Spanish explorer, under commission of Viceroy, 
Don Luis de Velasco, to colonize the district north of the river Rio 
Grande, which was confirmed by the Viceroy, Gaspar de Zuniga y Acebo de 
Monterey, sets out on an expedition with a large force of soldiers, Indians, 
wagons and cattle, and crossing the Rio Grande, founds San Gabriel, 
the first capital of New Mexico. 

1598 

Juan de Oiiate extends his explorations into the territory later com- 
prising Arizona and traverses the edges of the desert and fertile mountain 
valleys which had been discovered sixty years before. 

1599 

In revenge for the murder of a number of Spaniards, Onate decides 
to attack the city of Acoma, the great stronghold of the Pueblo Indians, 
standing on its almost impregnable cliffs. But the great cliffs were not 
proof against cunning, and the Spaniards divided themselves in two parties, 
one of which climbed the walls during the night and the other, making the 
front attack the following morning, take the city. In all history there is 
no more desperate battle, nor none fought at so dizzy a height. Of the 
3000 Indians but six hundred were left and they were forced to leave 
their homes and live in the valley. 



122 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

1600 

An excellent map is published by Tattonus in this year, showing 
Lower California a peninsula. The early cartographers persisted in the 
insular idea. From 1541 (the map of Castillo), to 1622 the peninsula 
idea gained ground, but again from 1622 to 1746 a reaction toward the 
idea of California being an island prevailed, even against the distinct proof 
to the contrary in Kino's entradas. 

1601 

As a part of his conquest of New Mexico and of his further explora- 
tions Onate makes an expedition into the country of the Quivira. 

1601 

Antonio de Herrera, Historian General of New Spain, publishes his 
account of the Cortes expedition, and states that between 1535 and 1537, 
the Spanish leader called the waste about him "California." 

1602 

Sebastian Vizcaino, a Spanish explorer, having become Chief Pilot 
of New Spain and commissioned Captain-General for a second California 
voyage by the Conde de Monterey, explores the west coast of Alta Cali- 
fornia north to Cape Blanco de San Sebastian, latitude 42. Vizcaino 
enters the great Bay, which had been previously visited by Ferrelo 
Unamunu and Cermano and names it the Bay of Monterey in honor of 
the Viceroy of Mexico. 

In this expedition of Vizcaino, a vessel, under the command of Juan 
Martin de Aguilar, becomes separated from the others in a storm and 
Aguilar sails north on his own responsibility as far as Cape Blanco in 
Oregon, latitude 43 or further. He sails up a river which receives the 
name Aguilar upon current maps. To him is given the credit for the 
discovery of the mouth of the Columbia River, although it is doubtful if 
he went that far. 

1603 

Sebastian Vizcaino publishes maps showing the Port of Monterey 
and the San Francisco Bay of Cermeno (Puerto de los Reyes*). This 
latter bay is also identical with Sir Francis Drake's Bay. 

1604 

A second exploration of the territory now included in the State of 
Arizona is made by Juan de Onate. On this exploration Onate followed 
the Colorado River to its mouth, being the first European to accomplish 
this. 

1605 

The settlement or pueblo of San Gabriel in New Mexico after con- 
tinuing for seven years is abandoned. While it thereby loses its antiquity 
as a permanently inhabited town, yet in later years the town of Chamita 
is founded on the same site. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 123 

1605 

The town of Santa Fe, now in the State of New Mexico, is estab- 
lished by Juan de Oiiate on the site of at least one prehistoric pueblo and 
is given the name of "La Cuidad Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco." 
Onate enslaves the Indians of the neighborhood and proceeds to open up 
extensive gold and silver mines. Santa Fe is the second oldest white 
settlement in the United States, that of Saint Augustine, Florida, alone 
exceeding it in point of age, and antedates the settlement at Jamestown 
by two years and the landing of the Mayflower in Boston Harbor by 
fifteen years. 

1606 

Enrico Martinez, a Mexican engineer and royal cosmographer of 
Spain, constructs a noted canal in the Valley of Mexico, and publishes 
the observations and surveys, made by Vizcaino in 1602, of Alta Cali- 
fornia, in thirty-two charts, which are still preserved in the archives of 
the Council of the Indies. 

1609 

King James I. of England makes his second grant of land on the 
North American Continent, in Virginia, known as the Jamestown Charter, 
being dated May 23, 1609, the seventh year of King James' reign; the 
inland limit of this grant or charter was from sea to sea, that is from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific, the southern boundary being thirty-four degrees, 
North latitude, and the northern boundary thirty-eight degrees, North 
latitude; and it is interesting to note that his northerly limit as finally 
settled passes into the Pacific Ocean, just north of San Francisco and that 
this southerly limit as finally settled passes about three miles south of 
the city of Redlands, through the city of Riverside, and into the Pacific 
Ocean at about Santa Monica, California, so that all of the Pacific Coast 
line from Santa Monica to the Golden Gate was the westerly limit of this 
Jamestown Grant, though never legally established or right of control 
exercised. 

1611 

Sebastian Vizcaino explores the region about Japan in hopes of find- 
ing the islands Ricas de Oro y Plata, islands of gold and silver. (The 
Armenian Islands of Villalobos and Unamunu). The existence of these 
mythical islands probably due to a folk-talk of Japan. 

1622 

Appears a map of "The World" by Kaspar Van Baerle, and on this 
California is drawn as an island of great size and of rectangular form. 
Other maps from this year (and in succeeding years to 1746) replace the 
peninsula of California by an island. 

1632 

The manuscript history entitled "Historia Verdadera de la Conquista 
de la Nueva Espana which had been written during the labors and studies 
of a period of many years by Bernal Diaz del Castillo and which had been 



124 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

hidden among the archives of a library in Spain for a period of fifty years 
and long after his death, is at this date brought to light and published to 
the world. It immediately secures an eminent position as historical evi- 
dence and authority and brings more positive attention to the discoveries 
and explorations of Hernando Cortes and the country then called "Cali- 
fornia." This history of the conquest of New Spain refers to Cortes as 
having discovered "an island" and that on that account Cortes was heartily 
cursed by his followers a starving band. 

1632 

Francisco de Ortega names one of the islands in the lower gulf of 
California Espiritu Santo. It was probably either this island or Cer- 
ralvo to which the name California was first given. 

(Note With subsequent historians, it is a matter of speculation as 
to what land, whether Lower California itself, or some islands off the 
coast, was first spoken of as "California." The quotation exactly from 
Richman is: "It" the land to which the name California was first given 
"may have been Cerralvo (the Santiago of Cortes), or Espiritu Santo, 
(so named by Ortega in 1632), both at the mouth of the Bay of Santa 
Cruz.") 

1630, 1646-1647 

Robert Dudley, Duke of Northumberland, an English Nobleman, 
and historiographer, publishes his three-volume work, Arcano Del Mare, 
and describes in II Mare d 'America Occidenale, the trips of the Galleons 
from the Philippines making the northwest coast of America. He defines 
the "Vermillion Sea" as beginning "at the Cape Santa Clara of Cali- 
fornia," etc., and as so many others, calls California an island. 

1647 

Father Joannis Bisselius, a Jesuit, contributes to the geographical 
literature of the age his Argonauticon Americanorum and proposes to 
name all the regions of the eastern and northern part of North America 
with the western kingdoms of Quivira and Tolmum, Estotilandia, and then 
turning to the south, on the west coast, he begin with California. He 
writes : "The kingdoms and regions better known to our navigation are 
these: those which lie on the south sea, Zurium, in an oblique direction 
from the west; in these after Quivira and the lands of the Tolmi, in the 
same extent of coast, the regions of California are stretched out on the 
sea toward the east (orient um versus^). The back of this land is shut in 
by mountains from which flows into the ocean the river Farrellones. The 
sides are surrounded by water in the manner of arms. On the right indeed, 
which looks toward the south, the South Sea ; on the left however, toward 
the north, it is bordered by a certain gulf running transversely up beyond 
the middle of the length of California. Some call this the Vermillion Sea." 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 125 

1652 

George Horn, in his notable work, on the origin of the people of 
America, traces the origin and migration of peoples by similarity of 
words ; and writing of Corea thus curtly refers to the derivation of the 
name California from the name of the Coreans: "Hi Coreani primo in 
Californium veneruntj quae nomen suum a Caoli habei." 

1653 

Appears the notable work entitled Sir Francis Drake Revived, con- 
taining an account of his four several voyages and his dangerous adven- 
tures for gold and silver. It included the World Encompassed. 

1669 

Peter Heylyn publishes his famous Cosmopraghie in four books in 
which he describes California as an island. 

1682 

Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, a young Frenchman of 
Rouen, France, makes his famous exploring tour in the middle west, floats 
down the Mississippi River to its mouth, takes possession of its vast basin 
in the name of France, and calls it "Louisiana," in honor of the king. 
This event bears direct relationship to subsequent Pacific Coast history. 

1686 

Captain Charles Swan, for the English, makes a voyage and enters 
California waters, carrying as a pilot and histriographer William Dam- 
pier, a navigator. Dampier eventually makes four circumnavigations of 
the globe and publishes his adventures in a number of thrilling volumes. 

1697 

Beginning of the Jesuit Mission System in Baja or Lower California, 
under Fathers Eusebio Francisco Kino, missionary and royal cosmogra- 
pher, and Juan Maria de Salvatierra, assistente at Los Chimpas, as 
visitador. First mission, Loreto de Concho, founded at Loreto, Lower 
California, October 25th. In the succeeding seventy-two years, eighteen 
missions are there located, all but one by the Jesuit order, and the famous 
"Pious Fund of California" is established. 

The Pious Fund had its origin in voluntary contributions in Mexico 
for the maintenance of Jesuit missions in California. The members of 
this company administered the fund until their expulsion from Spanish 
territory in 1768, when the government assumed charge until 1840 when 
it was turned over to the newly created Bishop of California, who admin- 
istered it until 1842, when the government again assumed control. At 
this time the government sold all the properties belonging to the fund, 
agreeing to pay to the missions of California six per cent per annum on 



126 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

the total selling price. This pledge has been the cause of a number of 
international difficulties between the United States and Mexico since 
California has been a part of the United States, but the question was 
finally settled in 1902 at The Hague, and Mexico pays to the bishops and 
archbishops of California $43,000 annually. 

1697 

William Dampier publishes A New Voyage Round the World, 
describing the lands visited on his voyages and the inhabitants, their 
customs, religions, etc., and makes reference to California which he also 
depicts as an island. 

1708-1711 

In these years is made the voyage to the South Sea and around the 
world by the ships Duke and Duchess of Bristol, commanded by Woods 
Rogers. Edward Cooke was second captain on board the "Duchess" and 
in 1712 publishes a journal of all the memorable transactions experienced 
during the said voyage. William Dampier, who really projected the 
exposition, went as pilot to the Duke. 

1709 

Woods Rogers in his visits to the Pacific waters rescues Alexander 
Selkirk, the original of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, from the Island 
of Juan Fernandez, three hundred miles off the coast of Chile. Selkirk 
is described as "A man in goatskins, who looked wilder than the first 
owners of them." 

1719 

Captain George Shelvocke makes a voyage to the Pacific Coast. It 
is very interesting that the sailor, Hatley, of this expedition was the 
Ancient Mariner who shot the albatross of Coleridge's famous poem. 

1728 

Vitus Behring, a Danish navigator, employed by Peter the Great of 
Russia, sails through the straits since bearing his name. By this voyage 
the question whether or not Asia and North America were one continent 
was indisputably settled. 

1728 

William Betagh publishes an account of a voyage round the world 
and of a remarkable enterprise begun in the year 1719, chiefly to cruise 
piratically on the Spaniards in the Great South Ocean. 

1739 

John Georgius Gemling publishes a rare tract which appears to have 
been prepared as a thesis for a university or college degree, entitled 
Disputatio geographica de vero Californiae situ et conditione. This is 
a little known but important publication. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 127 



1741 

The Russian government orders a second voyage to discover and 
explore the islands west of Asia. North America is first sighted by 
Alexei Chirikof, the commander of one of the two boats under Behring, 
and which had become separated from its companion in a storm, at lati- 
tude 55. He sails as far south as Vancouver's Island. He returns to 
Siberia without again seeing Behring. Behring thirty-six hours later 
sights Mt. St. Elias and takes on water on Kyak Island, latitude 59, 40', 
and returns to Siberia without any further explorations. 

1740-1744 

George Anson, Esq., later Lord Anson, as commander in chief of a 
squadron of his Majesty's ships, is sent upon an expedition to the South 
Sea and makes a voyage round the world. The experiences of this expe- 
dition were afterwards published from his papers and materials by Richard 
Walter, M.A., who had been Chaplain of his Majesty's ship, the Centurion, 
on that expedition. It made the most popular book of maritime adven- 
ture of the eighteenth century. 

1745 

Russian sailors, coming from the north, descend upon and take posses- 
sion of the Aleutian Islands. 

1747-1756 

As a result of the commercial war started in London over the Indian 
trade and fur traffic, Arthur Dobbs had fitted out two vessels for this 
purpose and if possible to open the route to the South Seas ; one of these 
was named California and under command of Captain Francis Smith 
the voyage is undertaken, of which a full account later appears. This 
is the first vessel to bear the name California. 

1757 

Miguel Venegas, a Mexican priest, publishes in Spain his history 
of California, Noticia de la California. This work has been translated 
into English, Dutch, French and German, and has become the basis of 
all later histories. In it Venegas says he thinks the word California 
originated from two Latin words calida and fornax, meaning hot furnace, 
though he doubts the Spanish adventurers "had so much learning." He 
also suggests that the origin may be an Indian word, possibly kali forno, 
meaning high hill. 

As a supplementary note to the foregoing, the following authorities 
with reference to the etymology of the name California should be included 
although the year dates do not come within the limitations of this Chro- 
nology : 

(Professor Jules Marcou in 1876 publishes in the Annual Report of 
the Chief of Engineers of the U. S. Army, his Notes upon the first dis- 



128 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

coveries of California and the origin of its name. He ascribes to Cortes 
the division of the Mexican region into "tierra frio, tierra templada, tierra 
caliente, and tierra California, or cold regions, temperate regions, hot 
regions, and regions like a furnace, from the two Latin words, calida and 
fornax, hot furnace. 

In 1893, an article appears in the San Francisco Chronicle by M. L., 
who states that the words cal y forno mean lime kiln in the language of 
the Indians of Lower California, and that the author heard one of them 
use it as such, and he believes that Ulloa, remembering the name Cali- 
fornia as used in the Sergas de Esplandidn, gives the name to the penin- 
sula. 

Professor George Davidson, President of the Geographical Society 
of the Pacific, in 1910 publishes his monograph on the origin and meaning 
of the name California. He accepts the hypothesis of the Sergas de 
Esplandidn, and gives as the etymological derivation of the word Cali- 
fornia two Greek words, meaning beauty and bird.) 

1767 

By decree of the Spanish Cortes, the Jesuits are expelled from 
Mexico and all Spanish territory; and their missions offered to the Fran- 
ciscans. , 

1769 

The Abbe, Jean Chappe D'Auteroche, voyages to California for an 
observation of the passage of the planet Venus over the face of the sun, 
June 3, 1769. This celestial phenomenon was visible only upon the coast 
of California. Spain knew of the expedition and fearing the possible 
results hastened to dispatch Don Gaspar de Portola upon his mission of 
occupation and colonization of upper California. The Abbe Chappe 
died while in Lower California and was there interred. Monsieur de 
Cassini publishes an account in 1772. 

1769 

Conquest of Upper California is ordered and committed to Don Jose 
Galvez, the Visitador General of Mexico and San Francisco de Croix, 
Viceroy. Captain Gaspar de Portola is made civil and military com- 
mander of the country, and Fray Junipero Serra, Father President of the 
missions. 

1769 

Beginning of the civil and religious reduction of Alta California, by 
an expedition under Governor Don Gaspar de Portola and Father Junipero 
Serra. 

1769 

July llth, starting from San Diego of an expedition of sixty-seven 
soldiers, friars and artisans northward to find the Bay of Monterey, the 
real objective of the whole expedition, all under command of Portola. 
In the company was Sergeant Jose Francisco de Ortega, who first dis- 
covers San Francisco Bay, while out hunting. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 129 

1769 

Founding of the first ( 1 ) Franciscan Mission at San Diego, July 
16th; the full name of the mission was San Diego de Alcala. There has 
been much discussion as to the origin of the name. The Bay was named 
by Vizcaino simply San Diego, after his flagship, but the mission was 
named by Serra after the saint whose day it was and not Santiago (San 
Diego) de Compostella, patron saint of Spain, as has often been said. 

1769 

San Francisco Bay is given this name for the first time, although 
still with the idea that it was the St. Francis Bay of Cermeno. A late 
authority, Richman, says: "The truth is that until 1774, the year of the 
Anza expedition, it had not so much as been settled just where the port of 
San Francisco was, where the presidio and mission were to be founded. 
What, however, was presumed was that the estuary of 1769 and 1770 
(the present San Francisco Bay) was appurtenant to the old San Fran- 
cisco Bay of Cermeno. On a map of 1772 the present San Francisco 
Bay is called Estero de San Francisco. (Estuary of San Francisco, or 
arm of the old bay of Cermeno.) 

1770 

Eusebio Francisco Kino, a missionary of Sonora, makes a final 
entrada to the Colorado, following it as far north as 35 degrees, proves 
practically that California is not a peninsula. 

1770 

Fray Francisco Garces, resident minister of San Xavier del Bac, 
Arizona, makes the third of his entradas, and in this one, the most im- 
portant, travels down the Rio Gila and the Colorado, nearly, if not quite 
to the mouth of the latter. 

1770 

On May 24, in a second overland expedition to find Monterey, Por- 
tola discovers and recognizes the bay. On the 31st, Captain Juan Perez 
anchors his ship San Antonio in Monterey Bay and on July 9th the (2) 
mission and presidio of San Carlos Borromeo de Monterey is founded, 
the second mission and the first presidio, or fort. It becomes the first 
capital of California. 

Note Monterey was not a pueblo in the beginning, but a presidio. 
There were three forms of local government set up in California, the 
presidio, or military centers, the missions, which, were never very far from 
the presidios, for the sake of protection, and the pueblo, or municipal 
settlements with regular colonists. These pueblos had a regular govern- 
ing body and alcalde. The colonists all had town-lots and a suerte, or field 
for irrigation, beside the use of the public grazing pastures. These prop- 
erties were not to be sold, nor could they be mortgaged. The settlers 
were subsidized by freedom from taxation for a number of years, and in 
Los Angeles each family received ten pesos a month. The only pueblos 



130 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

founded directly in early California were Los Angeles and San Jose (that 
is, from the very first, they had a municipal government. Monterey was 
a presidio, or fort, it did not have a municipal government until 1826.) 

1770(?) 

This is the probable date of the publication of Miguel Costanso's 
Diario historico de los viages de mar y tierra hecos al norte de la Cali- 
fornia, although it is not positive, as the edition was suppressed in Mexico 
for a number of years because it was thought the work gave too much 
information concerning California into the hands of the English. The 
work is of the utmost value, being the first book that relates exclusively 
to California, and contains a most complete account of the Portola expedi- 
tion to find the bay of Monterey. 

1771 

Mission of (2) San Carlos at Monterey is removed to the valley of 
Carmelo. 

1771 

Founding of (3) Mission of San Antonio de Padua, at Los Robles, 
July 14th. 

1771 

Founding of (4) Mission of San Gabriel, "The Queen of the Mis- 
sions," in a valley of the Sierra Madre Mountains. 

1772 

Founding of (5) the Mission of San Louis Obispo de Tolosa, Sepj 
tember 1st. 

1774 

Juan Bautista de Anza, commandante of the presidio of Tubac, in 
Arizona, marches, in company with Fray Garces, across the Colorado 
desert to San Gabriel and then north to Monterey, trying to open a prac- 
tical overland trail from the California missions to Mexico, through 
Arizona. 

1775 

Juan Manuel de Ayala, Lieutenant of the Royal Navy of Spain, and 
his ship San Carlos, are the first to enter the harbor, Saint Francis Bay, 
(Cermeno's and identical also with Drake's Bay). Ayala selects point 
for fort and for mission, the Dolores mission. 

1776 

Anza makes a second journey from Tubac with colonists intended 
for the presidio of San Francisco. Reaches San Francisco in company of 
Pedro Font and Jose Moraga, and surveys the coast about the bay. Posi- 
tions for the presidio and missions are decided on. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 131 

1776 

Fray Garces makes his last great overland journey. Accompanies 
Anza as far as Yuma, and then leaving the party crosses the Mojave 
desert and reaches San Gabriel. 

1776 

James Cook makes the last of his four voyages under the English 
flag. It is this fourth voyage that is of especial interest to California. 
He sails by the way of the cape of Good Hope and discovers the Hawaiian 
Islands. Reaches California at the altitude of Cape Mendicino and skirt- 
ing the coast to the north discovers Nootka Sound, thus laying the foun- 
dation for the Nootka controversy at a later date, and sails through the 
Behring Straits as far north as Icy Cape. Cook dies on the voyage, but 
on the return while at Canton, a discovery of great historic and commer- 
cial value is made to the effect that the supposed valueless furs, which 
had been traded for knives and trinkets with the Indians of the Nootka 
Sound vicinity, brought fabulous prices in China. This laid the founda- 
tion for the great fur trade of the future, and opened up so many and 
such intricate commercial and diplomatic controversies that Cook's voyage 
has come to be reckoned as most important in its historic bearing. 

1776 

Founding of the (6) Mission and Presidio of San Francisco de Asis, 
by two Franciscan monks, Palou and Gambon. The presidio was founded 
September 17th, but the mission, a league or so away from the presidio, 
was not founded until October 4th, on a small creek called Dolores. Hence 
the mission is commonly known as Dolores Mission. Fathers Palou and 
Gambon assume charge of the mission. 

1776 

Founding of (7) the Mission of San Juan Capistrano, November 1st. 

1777 

Founding of (8) the Mission of Santa Clara, January 12th. 

1777 

The pueblo of San Jose de Guadalupe, the first purely civil settle- 
ment in California, is founded by Gov. Felipe de Neve on the Rio de 
Guadalupe. The colonists consisted of fourteen heads of families, 66 
persons. They were granted house lots and planting lots and free use of 
the public grazing fields, under charter of the pueblo system. The lands 
could not be sold nor mortgaged. The colonists were free from taxes for a 
number of years, and furnished a certain number of domestic animals and 
seeds. The government was under an alcalde or magistrate, and a coun- 
cil elected yearly. 



132 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

1781 

Founding on the Rio Porciuncula (Los Angeles River) of the pueblo 
of Los Angeles under direction of the governor, Felipe de Neve. The 
pueblo was called Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de Los Angeles, City 
of our Lady, the Queen of the Angeles. At the beginning there were 
eleven heads of families, forty-six persons all told. Los Angeles was the 
second of the early pueblos. From 1835 Los Angeles vies with Monterey 
for the honor of being the capital of the province. 

1782 

Founding of (9) the Mission of San Buenaventura, March 31st. 

1784 

August 28th, Father Junipero Serra dies at the age of seventy-one 
years at his own Mission at San Carlos, in his loved valley of Carmelo. 
For fifty-four years he had been a Franciscan priest, thirty-five of which 
had been spent in missionary labors, fifteen of which had been spent in 
California, during which nine missions were established and over five thou- 
sand eight hundred Indian neophytes converted from heathenism to 
Christianity. 

1784 

Father Francisco Palou, friend and biographer of Serra, becomes 
Father President of the missions until 1786, when he retires to the promi- 
nent position of father guardian of the College of San Fernando in Mexico. 
Here he writes his Vida del Junipera Serra, and edits his Notices de la 
Nueva California. The first becomes the standard for the life of Serra, 
and the latter is the first book written in what is now California. 

1785 

Jean Francois de Gallaup, Count de la Perouse, under commission 
from the French government to explore the North Pacific coast of North 
America for the purpose of finding the Straits of Anian (for this ghost 
was still unlaid), visits California. He leaves a very interesting journal 
of his visit, full of shrewd observations on the affairs of the country ; the 
mission system, treatment of the Indians, etc. 

1786 

Fray Fermin Francisco de Lasuen becomes father president of the 
missions. 

1786 

Founding of (10) the Mission of Santa Barbara, by Father Fermin 
Francisco de Lasuen. This is the first mission founded by Father Lasuen 
and is dedicated December 4th.

Captain Robert Gray, an American discoverer, from Rhode Island, 
is appointed to command the sloop Washington, which is equipped by 
merchants of Boston for trade with the Indians on the Pacific Coast, and 
makes the voyage successfully. 

1787 

Francisco Palou publishes his famous and extensive history relating 
to upper California. This includes a symbological portrait of the Vener- 
able Padre Fray Junipero Serra, typifying his apostalic labors and re- 
counting the stories of the foundations of the California missions. As his 
closest friend and biographer, Padre Palou, says of Father Serra that 
"his laborious and exemplary life is nothing but a beautiful field decked 
with every class of flowers of excellent virtues." 

1787 

Founding of (11) the Mission of La Purisima Conception, near the 
present town of Lompoc, December 8th. 

1788-1789 

John Meares, an Englishman, voyages to the northwest coast of 
North America for the purpose of fur trading. Complications arise be- 
tween him and the Spanish authorities, which assume large proportions, 
almost embroiling the two countries in war. Meares's voyage has im- 
portance out of proportion to its geographic value, for it was on his 
discoveries that England, later, based her claims for the Oregon territory. 

1790-1792 

Captain Robert Gray, returning from his Pacific Coast voyage in 
another sloop, named the "Columbia," makes the notworthy record of 
being the first to carry the United States flag around the earth. Upon a 
second voyage in this ship to the Pacific Coast, he discovers the Columbia 
River, which he names after his vessel. 

1790 to 1795 

George Vancouver is commissioned by the King of England to ex- 
plore the northwest coast of America and makes a remarkable voyage of 
discovery to the north Pacific Ocean and round the world, in the Discovery, 
sloop of war, and armed tender, Chatham. He carefully examines and 
accurately surveys the northwestern coast, including the port San Fran- 
cisco. A published work of this voyage, in 1798, is superior to any of its 
kind and constitutes the chiefest source of authority of that period. 

1791 

Founding of (12) the Mission of the Holy Cross at Santa Cruz, 
September 25th. 

1791 

Founding of (13) the Mission of Maria Santisma de la Soledad, that

1796 

Francisco Palou, Spanish friar, who was the founder of the San 
Francisco mission in 1776 and the successor of Junipero Serra as presi- 
dent in 1783, passes out of the history of California. The exact date of 
his death is unknown. 

1796 

Arrival in Monterey of the Boston, the first American trading vessel 
to visit California. From this time begins a regular system of contraband 
trade between the Americans and the Californians, more or less connived 
at by the local officials. The Yankee traders exchanged manufactured 
goods for otter skins (which were exchanged again in China for teas, 
silks, etc.). The trade was of necessity contraband as the Mexican gov- 
ernment would not, at this time, permit the Californians to trade with any 
one but the home country. 

1797 

Founding of (14) the Mission of San Jose de Guadalupe, in honor 
of Saint Joseph, patron saint of California, near San Jose.

Arrival of the Lelia Byrd, Capt. Shaler, in San Diego harbor. She 
is suspected of contraband trade and ordered to leave. Does not comply 
without having first made sure of a number of otter furs. Is fired upon 
bv the fort, but escapes.

President Thomas Jefferson concludes the greatest diplomatic 
achievement in the annals of the United States by the acquisition of the 
vast, unbounded region beyond the Mississippi known as Louisiana. Its

Ocean and writes: "In what manner this country came to be distin- 
guished by the name California is left uncertain. It is not believed that 
the name was derived from the natives ; as the missionaries who have since 
resided among the Californians, have not at any time heard of such being 
applied to any port, bay, or part of the country. Some have conjectured 
that on account of the heat of the weather, Cortes formed the name Cali- 
fornia, from the Latin words calida and fornax." 

1803 

First expedition of General Zebulon Montgomery Pike, American 
soldier and explorer, to the headwaters of the Mississippi River.

Previously and subsequently to this date, for a certain period of 
years, the name "The Californians" was popularly current by which term 
was intended to include solely the Mexican residents in California.

General Zebulon Montgomery Pike completes a great exploring tour 
of the middle west in which he crosses the plains to the site of Denver, 
and discovers "Pike's Peak," then turning southward to the head waters 
of the Rio Grande. 

1806 

Nikolai Petrovich Rezanoff, representative of the Czar of Russia, 
visits the Russian colony in Alaska, and seeing the immediate necessity of 
providing the colony with food nearer than that sent from China, decides 
to visit California to open negotiations with the government for the pur- 
chase of breadstuffs, of which California had a surplus ; and also with the 
ultimate end in view of founding within the limits of California a Russian 
colony.

which contains references to the early voyages to California. 

1812 

The Russian settlement is eventually founded at Bodega Bay, and 
called Fort Ross. It is more properly a trading post and ship-yard than 
a fort. A lively trade with California was kept up for the support of the 
colony at Sitka, and with Europe and Asia in the export of skins. But in 
the end the otter and seal become scarce and the fort was disposed of to 
John Augustus Sutter. 

1813 

The Spanish Cortes passes a decree looking toward the secularization 
of the missions. From the beginning the idea had been that the mission 
system was only a temporary expedient for the civilization of the natives, 
and was supposed to last but ten years. This time was extended as it 
was seen to be too short. But there began to grow a feeling of dissatis- 
faction with the system as it was felt the Indians were not trained in 
independence and in the knowledge of citizenship. The government decided 
that the missions should be secularized, that is the Indians were to receive 
their lands to use individually the missions had only ostensibly been 
keepers of the lands for the rightful owners, the Indians. The religious 
work was to be turned over to parish priests, and the missionaries were 
to seek new fields. The Indians were to be gathered into pueblos to learn 
the duties of self government and self-support. This plan was not carried 
out for twenty years, though it came up again and again in the inter- 
vening years. This scheme of secularizing the California missions 
amounted in effect to government confiscation.

lonely Indian, Franciscan friar, the religious neophyte, the soldier and 
adventurer, and has become the subject of song and story for many a year.

Visit to San Francisco and Monterey of the English ship, Blossom, 
Capt. Frederick William Beechey. He publishes a full account of his 
voyage in which he speaks at length of the necessity of Spain's taking 
more active interest in the affairs of California if she wished to hold the 
country. "It is too important to be permitted to remain in its present 
neglected state," thus over-shadowing the intervenion of some foreign 
power. 

1827-1828 

Visit of the Frenchman, Auguste Duhaut-Cilly. Of contemporary 
accounts of California, this of Duhaut-Cilly's is the most extensive.

the Mexican government and is a notable character for his day. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 139 

1829 

Captain James P. Arthur visits California in the Brookline and 
makes the claim to have been the first to raise the United States flag in 
California. This was, of course, a crude representation of the emblem. 

"Arthur and his little party were sent ashore at San Diego to cure 
hides. They had a barn-like structure of wood, provided by the ship's 
carpenter, which answered the purpose of storehouse, curing shop, and 
residence. The life was lonesome enough. Upon the wide expanse of 
the Pacific they occasionally discerned a distant ship. Somtimes a vessel 
sailed near the lower offing. It was thus that the idea of preparing and 
raising a flag, for the purpose of attracting attention, occurred to them. 
The flag was manufactured from some shirts and Captain Arthur writes, 
with the just accuracy of a historian, that Mr. Greene's calico shirt fur- 
nished the blue, while he furnished the red and white. It was completed 
and raised on a Sunday, on the occasion of the arrival of the schooner, 
Washington, Captain Thompson of the Sandwich Islands, but sailing un- 
der the American flag." So writes honest Captain Arthur: "These men 
raised our national ensign, not in bravado, nor for war and conquest, but 
as honest men to show that they were American citizens and wanted 
company." 

1829 

Alfred Robinson, a native of Massachusetts, comes to California as 
clerk for the Boston trading company, Bryant, Sturges & Company. Mr. 
Robinson marries Ana Maria de la Guerra y Noriega, and becomes one 
of the early and respected American settlers. He publishes his Life in 
California in 1840, one of the best books of the period. 

1831 

David Douglas, the famous Scotch botanist, visits California in an 
earnest and adventurous search for botanical specimens. He examines 
California flora and ten years later the botanical results of his trip are 
published by Sir William Hooker. 

1831 

Insurrection against the Mexican governor, Manuel Victoria, headed 
by such prominent Californians as Echeandia, Pio Pico, Juan Bandini, and 
others, as the result of the spirit of the growing liberalism and democratic 
principles the very principles which made the American occupation so 
possible later against the arbitrary methods and militarism of the gover- 
nor, as shown principally in his refusal to convene the disputacion. For 
the first time in the history of California, blood is shed between men of 
Spanish extraction in a bout on the outskirts of Los Angeles, in which 
Captain Romualdo Pacheco and Avila were killed, and the Governor him- 
self severely wounded. Pablo de Fortilla, Commandante at San Diego, 
participates.

1833 

Further seculariaztion of the missions by Mexican authority is under- 
taken as well as confiscation of their property. The action really went 
into effect then although it was not fully consummated until 1845. 

Under rules known as Prevenciones de Emancipacion the missions 
are secularized. All Indians, Christians for twelve years, all married 
men and widowers with families, and all such as are competent to make a 
livelihood, are gathered together in pueblos and initiated in the laws of 
self-government. To each family is granted house-lots, planting lots and 
pasture lands, and live stock. The mission churches are turned over to 
the parish clergy and the other properties are sold. 

1834 

Jose Maria Padres, a native of Pueblo, having become a military 
leader under the Mexicans with the commission of Lieutenant-Colonel, 
associating with Jose Maria Hijar, devises the Hi jar and Padre's col- 
onization scheme and comes to California as a director of a colony of 
250 persons. 

1835 

Richard Henry Dana, Jr., voyages to San Francisco Bay in the 
trading brig Pilgrim, afterwards transferred to the Alert, and later re- 
counts his experiences and describes California in his book Two Years 
before the Mast. 

1835 

San Diego becomes a municipality, but remains such only three years, 
as the population decreases to such an extent that in 1838 there were not 
enough people to entitle it to a council. De Morfras reckons the popula- 
tion to be between one hundred and one hundred and fifty. From 1838 
to the Mexican War, San Diego is governed as part of the sub-prefecture 
of Los Angeles. 

1835 

Near the best anchorage and three miles northeast of the Mission, a 
small trading village, Yerba Buena, is founded on San Francisco Bay, 
and it is to this settlement rather than to the presidio of San Francisco 
or the mission of Dolores that must be given the origin of the present city 
of San Francisco. 

1836 

A new revolution is started in California against existing authority. 
This was decidedly the outcome of the same growing spirit of democracy 
and liberalism as shown under the Victoria revolt. It is a revolt by the 
younger California, the spirit of liberalism and democracy, under Juan 
Bautista Alvarado, a young clerk of the customs, against the spirit of 
centralization and despotism of the Mexican government as evinced in 
the new constitution, in which all departments of the government, legis- 
lative, executive, and judicial were practically in the hands of the central 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 141 

executive in Mexico. California was reduced to a department of that 
government and could not be considered as exercising the functions of a 
state. However, this revolt is successful and California is created a 
separate and independent government with Alvarado as governor. 

1836 

One of the central figures in the Revolution of 1836, is Isaac Graham, 
who had been a Tennessee hunter, and who organizes what became known 
as the Kentucky riflemen ; this adventurous character is described as wild, 
reckless, a crack shot, and a hater of Mexicans. Operating from his 
distillery at San Juan, he is aided in his organizing of the riflemen by 
William R. Garner and John Coppinger, both Englishmen, and Louis 
Pombert, a Frenchman, of some prominence in early California affairs, is 
made sergeant, that is, next in command to Graham. 

1839 

John Augustus Sutter, a Swiss, comes to California with the idea of 
forming a colony of his countrymen, a sort of Swiss Utopia. He becomes 
a naturalized Mexican citizen and receives a grant of eleven square 
leagues of land along the Sacramento River. He buys Fort Ross from 
the Russians. 

1839-1840 

Thomas Jefferson Farnham, a native of Maine, travels overland to 
Oregon ; makes a voyage on the Pacific to the Hawaiian Islands and 
returns to California and back to the United States through Mexico. He 
publishes in '1846 an account of his, Adventures in California and Scenes 
on the Pacific Coast. 

1840 

Monterey becomes the capital of California, so designated by the 
Mexican junta under the presidency of Alvarado. 

1840 

Arrival of Eugene Duflot de Mofras, a Frenchman, commissioned by 
his government to make a scientific exploration and report on Oregon and 
the Californias. M. de Mofras was assisted in every way bv both the 
secular and religious authorities of California, and he was given access 
to all the documentary material of the province, so it was possible for him 
to make a more complete report on the affairs of the country than could 
any of the other narrators. From the mass of material he had the 
literary judgment to arrange and select a work of marked ability, dis- 
crimination and historic value. 

1840 

Threatened uprising of the foreign element known as the Graham 
Trouble. Forty-six suspects, English and Americans, are captured and 
exiled to Mexico. About twenty of them are purged of conspiracy and 
allowed to return to California and granted compensation. 



142 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

The revolution headed by the Carrillos and supported by a small party 
of Americans under the Tennesseean named Graham is of short duration 
and is soon put down. General Jose Castro and Mariana Vallejo, names 
to become famous in California history, come into prominence. 

1840-1841 

Sir James Douglas, a Scotchman, and representative of the Hudson's 
Bay Company of London, visits California and records the events of his 
visit in a diary or journal, which later receives the title of Douglas' 
Voyage from the Columbia to California. With the Salinas and Santa 
Clara valleys the English visitor was so delighted that he was moved to 
pronounce California "a country in many respects unrivalled by any other 
part of the globe." 

1841 

Captain John Augustus Sutter builds a fort, which he calls "New 
Helvetia," which became headquarters for friendly Indians, white trap- 
pers and early travelers. "Sutter's Fort," as it was popularly called, was 
in the natural line of travel both from the Oregon country and from the 
east, and Sutter being an exceedingly hospitable person, his place became 
the rendezvous and the Mecca for all the overland travelers. Many of 
them remained there under Sutter's employ and many went to other places. 

1841 

First overland emigrant train, under John Bidwell, called Bartleson- 
Bidwell Company, crosses the Great Plains and reaches California. 

1842 

Commodore Thomas ap Catesby Jones, American naval officer, cruis- 
ing in western waters, lands and captures the town of Monterey, under 
the erroneous impression that war had been declared against Mexico. He 
holds possession for just one day. 

1843 

Stephen Smith, a native of Baltimore, arrives in California with the 
first steam engine ever seen upon the coast; also, he brings with him three 
pianos, which are the first ever heard in California. He receives com- 
mission from the Mexican authorities and in 1844 erects both a saw-mill 
and a grist-mill. 

1843-1844 

General John Charles Fremont's first expedition to the west. 

1843-1844 

General Fremont's second overland trip to the west for the purpose 
of surveying a route to the Pacific, and his first to California. He comes 
by the way of Carson's river and Johnson's Pass. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 143 

1845 

Annexation of Texas, March 1st. 

1845 

Fremont's second expedition to California. Suspicion is aroused by 
the California government and he is ordered to leave the department. This 
Fremont refuses to do and fortifies himself on Gavlin's Peak, and raises 
the American flag. But he quits his defences and departs for Oregon. 

1846 

Samuel Brannan, born in Maine, a Mormon elder and chief of a 
colony sent from New York on the Brooklyn, comes to California to take 
charge of a Mormon colonization scheme. 

1846 

Patrick Breen, an Irishman, who first came to America in 1826, 
comes to California overland from Iowa with the Donner party. Himself, 
his wife, Margaret, and seven children survive the perils of that terrible 
journey. Breen's original Diary of the Donner Party is an authority 
upon the incidents of that journey. 

1846 

Lieut. Archibald Gillespie arrives with dispatches for Fremont at 
the receipt of which Fremont returns to California. (May 8th.) 

1846 

One hundred and seventy horses for General Castro, which rumor 
had, were to be used for the purpose of driving the Americans out of Cali- 
fornia, are seized by Fremont. (June 5th.) 

1846 

Bear Flag Revolution. The flag of "The Republic of California," 
with its lone star and painted image of a grizzly bear, is first raised at 
Sonoma. Captain Ezekiel Merritt, accompanied by William B. Ide and 
a small band of Americans, captures the Mexican General Mariano 
Guadalupe Vallejo and his aides. The new republic lasts twenty-six days. 

1846 

The famous scout, Kit Carson, appears with General Fremont, and 
the Haros and Berreyesa are killed. 

There are so many and such contradictory stories concerning the 
murder of the Haro brothers that the real facts are not definitely known. 
At the very best, the responsibility of the death of the men, justly or 
unjustly, must rest with Fremont and not with Carson. This has been 
one of the scandals of the Fremont Expedition. The most violent sup- 
porters of Fremont do not deny that the men were killed without knowing 
anything of their guilt or innocence. It was reported that they were 
killed in revenge for the murder of two Americans, Cowie and Fowler. 



144 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

There was also a story circulated that the men had deliberately permitted 
themselves to be captured with false orders in their boots purporting to 
announce an attack on Sonoma by the Californians, for the purpose of 
deflecting the American troops to the protection of Sonoma, and thus per- 
mit the closely pressed Californians to escape. 

1846 

War declared between Mexico and the United States, May 3rd. The 
American flag raised at Monterey, July 7th, by Commodore John Drake 
Sloat. 

1846 

Josefa Bandini de Carrillo, the wife of Don Pedro Carrillo, who had 
been appointed provisional governor of California in 1837, manufactures 
with her own hands the first United States flag in full and proper form 
ever unfurled to the breezes of sunny California ; this is on the occasion 
of the arrival in San Diego of Commodore Stockton of the United States 
Navy and General Kearney of the United States Army. Commodore 
Stockton raises the silk flag to the masthead of the first American war 
ship ever to sail the Pacific Ocean. 

1846 

Commodore Robert F. Stockton arrives at the Port of Monterey and 
Commodore Sloat appoints Stockton Commander-in-Chief of the American 
forces, and the latter undertakes the conquest of California against the 
Mexican General Jose Castro. 

1846 

Commodore Robert F. Stockton takes possession of San Diego for the 
United States and establishes a fort there which is still known as Fort 
Stockton. 

1846 

Los Angeles is easily captured. Stockton and Fremont enter the 
city August 13th without opposition; Pico and Castro have fled to Mexico; 
and Lieutenant Archibald H. Gillespie is placed in command of the south 
with Los Angeles as headquarters and with orders to maintain martial 
law. Trouble arises through, possibly, a too trict interpretation of his 
orders, and Gillespie finds himself surrounded. He capitulates and is 
allowed to retreat with the honors of war. 

The Californians who identify themselves with this revolt are Captain 
Jose Maria Flores, Jose Antonio Carrillo, Andres Pico, and Serbulo 
Varela. 

1846 

A party of Americans under B. D. Wilson while hunting for Castro 
are met by a company of Californians at the Chino Ranch near Los 
Angeles, and a skirmish ensues in which three Americans are wounded 
and one Californian is killed. 



CALIFORNIA CHRONOLOGY 145 

1846 

Arrival of General Stephen W. Kearney, who has just completed the 
conquest of New Mexico. He and Gillespie meet the Californians under 
Andres Pico at San Pasquale, December 6th, and a bloody battle ensues 
with serious loss to the Americans ; and Kearney was only rescued from 
his perilous position by a detachment of Stockton's men. It is the only 
battle of any importance in the history of California. 

1846-1847 

The Donner party, consisting of eighty-four persons, in an overland 
trip from Independence, Missouri, are caught in the snows of the high 
Sierras, and through starvation and exposure, over forty of them perish 
before relief arrives. 

1847 

Yerba Buena exchanges its name for that of the Mission and the 
Bay of San Francisco. 

1847 

Monterey becomes the military capital of California, under the occu- 
pation by United States authority. 

1847 

Los Angeles is recaptured January 10th and the famous treaty is 
signed between Colonel John C. Fremont, as Commander of the American 
forces, and Andres Pico, Commandante of the California forces, at a point 
near Cahuenga Pass, within the present limits of Hollywood. With this 
capitulation all of California comes under the United States rule. 

1848 

Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, February 2nd, terminates the Mexican 
War, by the terms of which California is ceded to the United States ; its 
affairs are committed to the charge of Colonel Richard B. Mason. He 
became the military governor succeeding Kearney. By the treaty of 
Guadalupe Hidalgo, Texas, the western part of Colorado and New Mexico, 
all of the present states of Arizona, Nevada, Utah and California, an 
extensive and valuable portion of the Great West, were ceded to the United 
States. 

1848 

James Wilson Marshall, a native of New Jersey, discovers gold at 
Sutter's Mill, January 24th, and the rush of gold-seekers to California 
commences. The exact day of the month that gold was discovered has 
never been settled, Marshall himself says, "on or about the nineteenth." 
But he also says he is not sure of the date. However, a man named Bigler, 
who kept a diary, has the date the twenty-fourth, and as he was on the 
spot at the time, most likely is correct. 

1849 

In February, is witnessed the arrival in San Francisco Bay of the 
steamship California from New York with the first party of gold seekers

from the Atlantic States. In March, the Oregon arrives, and in June there 
are two hundred square-rigged vessels lying in the Bay. 

1849 

During this year the numerous and mighty caravans of horses, wagons, 
cattle, men, women and children make their devious and dangerous way 
across the overland trail. This is the coming of the "Argonauts," cele- 
brated in Californian history as the "Forty-Niners." 

1849 

This year marks two important developments: (a) The growth of 
population during this period. In 1845, the estimated census was 18,000, 
including Indians, while in 1850 it was estimated at 150,000. (b) The 
struggle for order, for this was not a period of complete recklessness. 
There were many reckless people, many criminals, and much to try the 
temper of the most conservative, but still there arose and grew a steady 
feeling for law and order that had its final outcome in the convention 
and constitution. 

1849 

A constitutional convention is organized at Monterey, September 1st. 
The Californians, in framing a State Constitution, which is signed October 
13th, exclude slavery from the soil by a unanimous vote. Under it Peter 
H. Burnett is elected Governor, and the new Legislature chooses John C. 
Fremont and William M. Gwin as United States senators. San Jose is 
made the capital of the State. The great seal of the State is designed by 
Major Robert Selden Garnett, is presented to convention by Caleb Lyon, 
and is engraved by Albrecht Kuner in changed form. Hittell, an eminent 
authority, says: "The constitution, notwithstanding its haste, was one 
of the best, if not the best, of the thirty-one state constitutions in effect 
at the time. Though nearly every portion was copied from some other 
instrument, there was a rare choice and combination." By the terms of 
the constitution, slavery was unanimously voted down ; the boundary was 
defined ; provisions were made for the establishment of public schools ; and 
the question of taxation was settled. 

1849 

The necessity of an interior city being felt, and the site of Sutter's 
Fort being inadequate, a new town-site was laid out below the fort. Town 
lots were sold and Sacramento had its beginning. In January, 1849, the 
first frame house was built. 

1850 

California admitted to the Union September 9th. California is at 
last admitted after months of waiting and dilatory action on the part of 
Congress. She comes in a free and sovereign state with her own consti- 
tution, governor and legislature, the only state in the Union with this 
distinction.

First Vigilance Committee. As protection against the outlawry and 
crime of the city, the citizens of San Francisco organize themselves into 
a vigilance committee, with regular constitution binding them "to perform 
every lawful act for the maintenance of law and order, and to sustain the 
law when properly administered; but not to be deterred in the punish- 
ment of any crime by any quibble of the law, by the insecurity of the 
prisons, or the corruption or laxity of those in authority. An occasion 
soon occurred for their action. A man accused of theft was caught with 
the stolen goods, tried, sentenced to be shot, and the sentence duly carried 
out.

CALIFORNIA IN 1851 



Lassons Ranch, California, 

March 12, 1851. 



Dear Brother: 



I hardly know in what way to begin to apologize for my neglect in 
not having written you for so long a time. In fact I have no good reasons 
unless I claim that I have not received any answer to the one (& only one) 
that I wrote you near a year since, but whether you wrote me or not I 
have no good reasons for not troubling you occasionally & I hope & trust 
that you will let me occasionally hear from you. I am now stopping on 
Lassons Ranch, it is situated on the most northerly route or road from the 
States on the Sacramento River about 100 miles above Sacramento City 
and about 250 miles from San Francisco. I am this season engaged in 
farming and gardening. Shall cultivate probably from 80 to 100 acres, 
the soil is excellent & is easily cultivated, in fact it is almost impossible to 
raise vegetables especially without irrigation. Frank, Sheldon & myself 
last season were engaged jointly in mineing on Feather River, principally 
in damming and draining the beds of the River & with us as it was with 
all others who were operating upon that Stream it proved an entire failure, 
we not only lost our whole summers work but all that we had previously 
made. Since which time Frank has been stopping in Sacramento City, 
keeping a Restaurant and doing tolerably well. Sheldon is on a Steam 
Boat, gets good wages & lays up his money & as for myself after leaving 
Feather River I came down to Sacramento City with the intention of going 
into business, but after remaining there a short time the Cholera broke 
out and from its severity, I thought it most prudent to leave and again I 
went to mineing at which I continued until the middle of December, but for 
the want of water, I was compelled to leave the location we had selected, 
as we have had no rains this winter to raise the water in the ravines. We 
had flung up something like 3000 buckets of earth, which yet remains to 
wash when the rains do come if ever, as we have had no rains since the 
first week in January & then but very little. An old acquaintance and 
friend of mine had bought this Ranch, & persuaded me to come up & 
cultivate it. It contains 36 square miles of sand bars, 12 miles on the 
Sacramento River & extends back 3 miles, a large majority of it is excel- 
lent sand and it has the reputation of being one of the best Ranches in 
California. They have discovered a new pass in the Sierra Nevada Moun- 
tains, in fact, a regular sink or rent in the mountains, being an ex- 
cellent road without a single eminence in passing the mountains, It 
has also another advantage, about 30 miles of Desert and good wa- 
ter on the Desert. After passing the Sierra Nevada Range you enter 
what is termed the Feather River Meadows, a valley on the North 
Fork of the Feather River covered with the most luxuriant growth of 
clover and other grasses, in fact, these valleys are the best pastures I ever 
saw in any country they follow this valley to within a short distance of 



150 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

the Sacramento Valley, it is believed this route is far preferable to any 
of the others heretofore travelled, & if the Emigration should take it it 
will make a ready sale for all of our effects, as we are right at the termi- 
nation of the road & of course the greater the demand the better the 
prices. Anyhow, I am and shall be here this Season, & hope I may meet 
with better success than I did the last. I probably shall not do any worse. 
I can write you no news about California, it is an old story, and as the 
papers in the States give you all that is new or interesting, you of course 
are better posted in California news than I am. I will say this much for 
California, that the climate I do consider delightful, but it never can be an 
agricultural country or not so to any extent. Vegetation where the soil 
is moist grows beyond anything I ever saw, but the amount of such sand 
is limited & stock & Gold Digging will be the principal production. Gold 
I think will be found here for ages but not in the quantities it has here- 
tofore. Although for years it will pay a miner reasonable wages when the 
expenses of living and operating are reduced to a reasonable standard. 

Remember me to your wife & ch 1 was going to say children but 

put it Charley. Also to all our folks, Gilbert &c, Uncle Shull &c, &c. 
Do write me soon and direct to this Ranch as we are to have a Post Office 
here after the first of April & if I was a Whig I might be P. M. I suppose, 
which would be a very lucrative office here as probably the office will not 
take in fifty dollars a year. I am in receipt of letters from home monthly. 
I received one a few days ago from my wife. My family were at the time 
she wrote (Dec.) in good health, but wanted me home, but I must try 
California a little longer, with the hope that I may yet get paid for coming. 

From 

Your Aff't Brother, 
Mr. R. H. Pomeroy.

The Virginia Charter 

and the 
Settlement of Jamestown, 

Virginia 



Mr. Willard Atherton Nichols, one of the honored members of this 
Society, has recently prepared a monograph upon the Virginia Charter 
and the Settlement of Jamestown, Virginia, which emphasizes a very im- 
portant and interesting fact in connection with early California history. 
The suggestion that a large portion of the present State of California was 
in fact included within the very liberal limitations of the Virginia Char- 
ter, and that, inferentially, it had the effect of bringing the territory of 
California under the possible control and possessory right of Virginia, 
though never actually established or exercised, is so very vital and instruc- 
tive that the Publication Committee has thought it the due of Mr. Nichols 
to reprint his contribution to California history in this publication. The 
article is so well written and so important that it will be widely read and 
discussed and, therefore, will certainly enhance the value of this book. As 
a supplementary article to "California Chronology" appearing in the pre- 
ceding pages, it will also bear a close relation of both interest and instruction. 

EDITOR. 



Much has been written upon these subjects and the archives relating 
to them are by no means scanty. 

In the main, the histories of these important events cannot be fairly 
criticized, although some writers have resorted to special pleading to 
prove a claim of the leadership for these incidents in the remarkable 
development in religious and civil liberty, as well as in the social and 
material prosperity, of this country. 

The charter, or charters, for there were two of them, are interesting 
documents and are well worth studying, but their study is not the purpose 
of this paper. The writer only desires, in the main, to call attention to 
their territorial scope, and to the realization of their aim in that direction. 

James I followed Elizabeth in her readiness to grant land that did 
not belong to the English crown, especially if it was particularly valued 
by the Pope of Rome, but it is true that both of these monarchs provided 
in their grants that no claims should be made upon territory already in 
the possession of any Christian prince. 

The limit inland from the Atlantic coast line in the first charter, 
dated April 10, 1606, was 100 English miles; but in the second charter, 
dated May 23, 1609, the seventh year of James's reign, the inland limit 
was from sea to sea, from the Atlantic to the Pacific. 

The writer has not found any definite reason given for this remark- 
able change in the western boundary. Some writers consider that it was 
made under a misapprehension as to the great extent of territory it 
covered. They reason that the width of the continent was not known nor 
even conceived at that time, but that the idea was that it was not much 



154 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

farther from sea to sea at that point than it is in Mexico and Central 
America, regions comparatively well known at that period through the 
Spanish explorations from ocean to ocean. It is undoubtedly true that 
explorers even in 1609, had not given up the hope of discovering a water 
passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific along the north Atlantic coast, 
and many explorations of tidal rivers were made, particularly on the 
Atlantic side, with this in view. In 1607, the Chickahominy was explored 
for that purpose, and so was the Hudson River in 1609 by Hudson. 

That this change was made for the purpose of including much terri- 
tory to the west which common report had marked as abounding in gold 
and precious stones the land of "The City of Gold," etc. seems credible; 
much more so than that King James, the pedant and patron of learning, 
had no idea of the vast extent of the continent to the westward. This orig- 
inal limit of 100 miles must have been very unsatisfactory, as eager ex- 
plorers under the first charter had conclusively settled that there was no 
"El Dorado" within that limit at least. 

The early rumors of the wonderful riches of Cibola sent to the Spanish 
court, and the journey of Coronado undertaken to discover it, with his 
reports to the Spanish King of its unsatisfying results and of the visit of his 
assistant, Friar Marcos to Quivira, farther to the north on the same com- 
paratively fruitless search, must have been well known to the court of 
James. 

Their latitude, that of Cibola a little north of 34 degrees North and of 
Quivira about 40 degrees North latitude were also reported and were of 
record. 

Then again, a map of North and South America had been published 
in Belgium by Wytfliet in 1597, showing the Pacific coast on the 34th 
degree of North latitude to be about 83 degrees west of the Atlantic coast 
on the same latitude, or a width of continent of at least 4400 miles. We 
now know that this distance is from about 120 degrees west of Greenwich 
to about 76 degrees and 30 minutes west, equivalent to about 2300 miles. 
Wytfliet's map gives the width along the 45th degree of North latitude as 
about 4800 miles, while now it is known to be about 3000 miles. The 
recorded opinion of some scientific men of the time shows a conception of 
the width of the continent to have been greater rather than less than the 
reality. 

It therefore seems to the writer that King James knew full well the 
wonderful area he was granting, and that he, with many others, including 
Coronado and the Spanish explorers, considered the mineral riches of the 
country by no means to be despised, although not up to the fabled standard, 
as far as explored. 

Here we find the motive of the extension of the charter limit the 
common one in early exploration the lure of gold. 

In this connection, we can here call attention to the characteristic 
tenacity of purpose in the Anglo-Saxon race. Three hundred years ago 
claim was laid to this strip of territory, extending from 34 degrees North 
latitude to 45 degrees North latitude and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. 
Spain and France in time entrenched themselves strongly within these 
limits in the west, but American enterprise and capacity for pioneer work 
of the enduring kind, gradually brought about the successful and undis- 
puted ownership by people of English descent of all the territory claimed 
by King James the First of England. Its southern limit takes in Cibola 
the famed, and Quivira the other goal of the gold seekers is certainly 
well within its northern boundary, although its exact location is a matter 
of conjecture. 

That it took a long extended and patient waiting and much expendi- 
ture of lives and money to realize this claim as named in the early charters, 
is well known. The results of the early French-Indian Wars made it 
possible for England in 1783 to cede to the United States of America, its 
Anglo-Saxon offshoot, this territory from the Atlantic to the Mississippi. 



THE VIRGINIA CHARTER 155 



The Louisiana Purchase of 1803 added almost as much. The annexation 
of Texas caused the Mexican War which resulted in the United States secur- 
ing by treaty of peace in 1848, the remainder to the Pacific ocean, this 
last addition completing the chain, and only then taking in by far the 
greater part of Arizona and New Mexico, the area covering the land of 
golden promise to Coronado and of the avaricious hope of King James. 

In 1848, the Anglo-Saxon claim of 1609 had been made good. It is 
of local interest to know that we of Redlands and Los Angeles are tied by 
land boundaries to the Jamestown Colony founded in 1607, for 34 degrees 
North latitude, the southerly limit of the grant of 1609, passes about three 
miles south of Redlands, through the city of Riverside, and into the Pacific 
ocean at about Santa Monica. Its northerly limit, as finally settled 38 
degrees North latitude, passes into the Pacific ocean just north of San 
Francisco, so our coast line, from Santa Monica to the Golden Gate, was 
the westerly limit of the Jamestown Colonial possessions of record. 

King James, no less than the thrifty Elizabeth, kept the mercantile 
side of his colonial enterprises well in mind, although perhaps not so 
clearly expressed in the preambles to his charters, as that part in the 
charters in question stating that their chief motive was "the advancement 
of the Divine glory by bringing the Indians and savages resident in those 
parts to human civility and a settled and a quiet government." Poor 
Indians, poor savages, one can only exclaim upon reading the history of the 
oppression ajid practical extermination that went with the bringing of them 
to "human civility" in the parts contained within the limits of the James- 
town grants, and indeed within the limits of the entire grant extending 
from 34 to 45 degrees North latitude. 

By this grant or charter, authority was given to search for mines, 
paying the King one-fifth of all gold and silver and one-fifteenth of all 
copper; to coin money; to invite and carry over adventurers; to repel 
Intruders; to levy duties for their own use during 21 years; and to export 
goods from England free of all imposts for 7 years. Lands in the Colony 
were to be held of the King, and colonists and their children were to have 
all the rights of the native born Englishmen. 

A few months after the granting of the charter, James issued instruc- 
tions for the government of Virginia, in which he appointed a Council 
and established the Church of England as the authorized form of worship. 

One of the first undertakings of the settlers, and that within eight 
days of their arrival, was an expedition to the Falls of the James River 
(Richmond), to search for a gold mine reported to be there. At one time 
in 1608, some glittering bits of yellow mica found in a small stream near 
Jamestown, were mistaken for gold dust and a veritable gold rush set in, 
everything being neglected for the time being for it; and a cargo of the 
worthless stuff was shipped to the Company in England. 

In these days of magazine filling, there has been much written to 
controvert well established opinions as to the relative importance of certain 
historical facts; upon the lack of justification of certain New England 
methods of protesting against taxation without representation; upon the 
unreasonableness of the War of the Revolution the Loyalists being the 
true patriots; upon the selfish and ignoble motives governing Washington 
and those who framed our Constitution, etc., etc.; and claiming as a 
logical deduction, from their criticisms, that it would have been much 
better for the country if the rebels of 1775 had been overpowered and 
hung. It is not worth our time to refute such foolish theories. But when 
it comes to an argument to belittle the importance to the New World, of 
the settlement at Plymouth, by an attempt to prove that our prosperity 
and remarkable advancement in free government come from Jamestown 
rather than from Plymouth and New England, because of the fact that the 
settlement of Jamestown preceded Plymouth by 13 years, it does seem 
germane to this paper to point out some differences between Jamestown 
and Plymouth, and to claim for the latter the credit, for "our character- 



156 SOCIETY, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

istic institutions," of the vast territory embraced by King James's grants 
of 1606 and 1609. 

Dean Hodges is reported to have said in a paper upon the subject a 
few months ago in Boston, "It is commonly taken for granted among in- 
telligent people that our characteristic institutions and especially our 
liberties, civil and religious, began at Plymouth. As a matter of historical 
fact, they began a dozen years before at Jamestown"; Alexander Brown 
says of the founding of Jamestown, "If the enterprise had then resulted in 
failure, the United States would not now be in existence." 

It is true that Jamestown was settled first; it did hold the first regular 
church services, and it did have the first representative assembly for 
political affairs, all under royal permission and control. But all that did 
not mean worship of God according to the dictates of one's conscience, nor 
did it mean freedom in self government. These came from Plymouth and 
New England, from their dissenting forms of worship and from the town 
meetings. Prom Jamestown would have come established church and 
state, concentration of land holdings and a privileged class. From Ply- 
mouth have come freedom of public worship, small land holdings and a 
representative democratic government. 

It may be argued that early Congregationalism in New England was 
as far from free worship as was the rule of the established Church of Eng- 
land. This was probably true to a great degree in the beginning, for the 
early immigrants in New England came for that very freedom none 
others need have come. The Pilgrims sought this freedom first in Holland, 
but on account of their discontent at being in a foreign land, and of having 
their children under foreign influences, however kind and genial, in short 
this land not being English, they decided to remove to the New World, 
already well known to them by the repeated attempts of English people to 
establish colonies there, where in unoccupied land they could form con- 
ditions to suit themselves. The Pilgrims took with them to Plymouth, but 
more particularly did those of the Massachusetts Bay Colony who followed 
them, their share of the religious intolerance of the age. Jamestown was 
by no means free from it. 

The first article in the regulations for colonies settling under these 
Jamestown grants was that religious service shall "be that now preferred 
and established within our realms of England." In 1642, three congre- 
gational ministers came from Boston to Virginia to disseminate their 
doctrines. Their stay was but short, for by enactment of the Assembly, 
all ministers other than those of the Church of England, were compelled 
to leave the Colony. 

In 1648, the dissenters among the colonists in Virginia had increased 
to 118 in number, and they were punished for their dissent by imprison- 
ment and banishment, and all opposition to the established church was 
decisively quelled. 

The character of the colonists coming to Jamestown and then to Vir- 
ginia, and to Plymouth and later to New England, were entirely different. 
To Jamestown came at first only men, some of them leaders of the noble 
class, so-called, but by far the greater part of them adventurers in the 
modern sense of the word, many of a roving disposition gained by partic- 
ipating as soldiers in the foreign wars then just closed, and who were 
from this disposition a cause of worry and trouble to the home govern- 
ment;; others who had not been unacquainted, as evil doers, with the 
interior of English prisons, who also left their country for the country's 
good; and all governed, naturally, by a desire to live as easily as possible. 

To Plymouth came men with their families, some indeed of armigerous 
descent, but the greater part of them merchants, artisans and farmers, all 
earnest sturdy men who sought not ease nor personal comfort, but men 
eager for work and for chances for overcoming obstacles. They welcomed 
the severity of the climate and the untractableness of the soil. They were 
free from the trammels of the Established Church; what else mattered to 



THE VIRGINIA CHARTER 157 

them? At the end of their first year, to give thanks to God for the results, 
scanty indeed, of their attempts at self-support, the first Thanksgiving 
Day service was held, and, as Fiske says, "then began New England." 

The mild climate of Jamestown and the large area of productive and 
easily worked soil in its vicinity, made life and work easier and more 
attractive to such people as came over to them. 

In fact although it is claimed by some that this settlement saved 
America to the English by its permanency, by its contiued existence for 
thirteen years before the Pilgrims came, it possibly would not have sur- 
vived had not its leaders, undoubtedly from the example of the Plymouth 
Colony, seen before it was too late, the necessity of encouraging the mak- 
ing of homes by marrying its men and by bringing in families; and they 
took action along these lines. 

The Jamestown Colony was primarily a trade and business adventure. 
The settlement of Plymouth was essentially an ethical movement. The 
Pilgrims did have to connect themselves in a business way with a com- 
mercial Company in England to obtain the means of emigrating to 
America. They did have to agree to repay these advances, and next to 
self-support which was of the most frugal kind, their efforts were steadily 
directed to pay back the loans, which was speedily done, first by notes 
given by the leaders to expedite the payment of this debt, which were 
afterwards taken up by the settlers. Within a few years, by 1633, in fact, 
they were as independent in estate as they were in person. Notwithstand- 
ing the salubrity of the climate and the productiveness of the soil, the 
advances of the Company in London which financed the Jamestown settle- 
ment, were never repaid in full and this Company, after several years, 
wound up its affairs with a substantial loss. 

Tobacco was the first paying crop of the Jamestown Colony, and upon 
this crop the Colony prospered greatly until over-production brought 
financial disaster. At the first meeting of the Assembly, or House of 
Burgesses, held in the chancel of the church in Jamestown on July 30, 
1619, tobacco was authorized as currency, at three shillings for the best 
per pound, and at eighteen pence for the second quality. The clergy was 
paid by a levy of tobacco, and in the autumn of 1621, when the practice 
began, under the auspices of the government, of shipping young women of 
respectability and above reproach, for wives for the Colonists, above re- 
ferred to, the latter were obliged by law to pay 120 pounds of tobacco as 
the cost of transportation of their government supplied wives, subse- 
quently increased to 150 pounds. 

The Pilgrims and Puritans bartered with food-stuffs, so far as the 
writer has learned. 

About the last of August, 1619, a Dutch man-of-war brought in and 
sold to the Jamestown settlers, twenty negroes, thus introducing slavery 
into this country. With this addition to the laboring force, of slaves, 
largely increased in numbers annually by importation and by birth, the 
plantation system of living became general, and the close communion of 
towns, as in New England, became impossible. This led the Virginia 
Colony away from democracy to a government by a few large proprietors. 
Slavery never got a firm foothold in New England, and the small headway 
it had made was effectually stamped out by the last of the seventeenth 
century through the efforts of the Quakers of Rhode Island, and of the 
other New England Colonies. 

It is possible that the large use and ownership of slaves made life a 
little less material to the Southern planter in time, and that the close 
hard struggle for existence of the Northern citizen, gave also in time, to 
the latter, a commercial money-making reputation, that they would not 
have developed under easier conditions of life, but this struggle also made 
more hardy, sturdy men than the other system, men who soon felt confined 
by the limits of New England, and who then swarmed to the West to com-

plete the winning of the territory so grandly given to America by King 
James. 

Before the war Southerners, as a rule, kept at home, and rarely took 
any part in the upbuilding of the West, or of the East for that matter, 
except so far as their influence was felt in legislative halls at home oj at 
the seat of the general government. From the very beginning of our 
Colonial history, northern men with their families settled in considerable 
numbers in the southern colonies and states, as well as in much larger 
and controlling numbers in the West. 

Today all this is changed. Slavery has gone and with it the exclusive 
plantation life. Enterprising southern men are found as residents in all 
the large towns and centers of activity in the land, and participating most 
effectively in. all the interests, civil, business and religious, of the commu- 
nity. The descendants of Jamestown and of Plymouth are now working 
as one people in all sections of our great country, and along the same 
lines, to advance civilization. 

I will close with an extract from a paper by Rev. Morton Dexter of 
Boston, comparing Plymouth with Jamestown. 

"Suppose that William Brewster and Captain John Smith * * * 
could appear among us this afternoon and address us * * *. Suppose 
them to be well informed concerning the history of our country and the 
wonderful fruition of the little seeds which they helped to plant * * *. 
And if Brewster should turn to Smith and say, "Which colony, Captain, 
yours or mine, has had the larger influence in promoting this fortunate 
conditions of things?" Smith was so intelligent and fair-minded a man 
that I believe he would reply, "Well, Elder, Jamestown must not be be- 
littled. It has done much and has done it will. But on the whole I will 
admit that Plymouth has done the most and the best."

enlargement of this work may be more complete. It will also be 
glad to be advised of any errors or omissions herein. 

The lineages and records of services presented herewith com- 
prise the important and material portion of this work. 

Those based upon the records of this Society have been care- 
fully and painstakingly digested from the original applications, and 
records supplemental thereof, one file with it. 

The indexes appearing here have been carefully compiled, and 
are presented for the purpose of making available names and 
services which have hitherto been difficult to find, owing to their 
appearing in unindexed, though authoritative, works. 

The lists of sailors and marines have been carefully compiled 
from original sources. 

The lists of South Carolina and Maryland names, although 
heretofore published, are difficult of access and, to many, entirely 
unavailable. They are therefore reproduced here. 

The list of sailors presented here through the courtesy of The

The list of the Last Men of the Revolution seems a unique, 
though logical, part of a compilation of this character. 

Every name appearing in the body of this work will be carried

"Note "Others who have investigated the Slagle Genealogy claim that the 
Revolutionary record here given to John Jacob Slagle really belonged to his 
father, Jacob Slagle. While as a part of the lineage of the member qual- 
ifying under him it would not make any difference as to his right of mem- 
bership, yet in the interest of future accuracy in the matter attention is here 
called to the possibility. Editor."

The Last Men of the Revolution 



It is interesting to know who were the last survivors of the patriotic 
men who served in the Revolutionary War. Reverend E. B. Milliard of 
Hartford, Connecticut, in 1864, published a volume in which he gave 
biographical sketches and altogether a list of twenty of the last survivors. 
They are given below. A similar list was afterwards repeated in "The Spirit 
of '76," in its issue of November, 1898, with additional dates and some 
variations, which is also given below.

"Death of an Aged Man." "Abram Fitz-John Channell died 111 
Georgeville, C. E. (Canada, East. Ed.), on the 9th inst, aged one hun- 
dred and ten years." "He was born in Shefford, Bedfordshire, Eng., and 
was apprenticed to Harris Varden, tailor, Whitehorse Yard, Drury Lane, 
London. At eighteen years of age he was impressed, and made one or 
more cruises on board an English man-of-war." "He then engaged in 
the merchant service, and in the course of a few years found himself in 
Chebaco Parish, Ipswich, Ms., where for many years he successfully 
carried on the business of tailoring and hotel keeping." "He resided for 
many years in that part of Ipswich now called Essex." "From Essex he 
removed to his late residence in Canada." "He was a man of great 
activity, energy and enterprise, and his uniform habits of temperance 
doubtless contributed many a year to his long life." "He had descendants 
of the fifth generation whom his own eyes have looked upon, and whom 
his arms have held." "Journal, January 21, 1858." 

The above article, reprinted in Vol. 13 of the New England Historical 
and Genealogical Magazine, at page 38, is again reprinted here as an item 
of interest, it concerning one of the Revolutionary Patriots whose services 
on behalf of the struggling colonies is more fully set forth on a preceding 
page of this record.

Revolutionary @olaiers of 
@kmth 



Referring to the introduction to the list of South Carolina Soldiers, 
following, it should be noted that, unfortunately, it has been impossible 
to obtain the remainder of the list or any complete list of the Revolu- 
tionary Soldiers of Sauth Carolina for publication in complete and all 
inclusive form. It appears that the Historical Commission of South Caro- 
lina has already published in printed form certain of the Revolutionary 
Records of the State, and, further, has under contemplation a publication 
which will be complete and comprehensive. The work is in charge of 
Mr. A. S. Salley, Jr., Secretary of the Commission, who is a very compe- 
tent historian and genealogist. 

In a recent communication, Mr. Salley has given the Publication Com- 
mittee a very careful explanation of the source and authoritativeness of 
the lists of Revolutionary Soldiers, originally published in "The State," 
then later in the D. A. R. Magazine and now repeated in this volume. It 
would appear that possibly some names are included in the list of per- 
sons, who did not perform actual military service, and, for that reason, 
anyone using the lists of names here printed should verify the record by 
investigating the original sources. This will be the wise and safe course 
to pursue, using the names here given as an index or guide to the original 
records. 

It should also be explained that the punctuation and arrangement of 
this list are not made by the Editors, but the whole matter is simply re- 
produced as formerly published. 



Revolutionary Soldiers of South Carolina 



The Publication Committee has planned to make this volume of 
permanent value as a reference book and to include such matter as would 
tend to make its use the more extended. Therefore, it was decided to 
include a list of the Revolutionary Soldiers of South Carolina, which 
first appeared in the columns of the Columbia (S. C.) State (a newspaper), 
beginning January 4, 1904, and running at more or less irregular in- 
tervals to February, 1905. The list was headed "The Revolutionary 
Rolls," and at the top of each installment was the following heading: 

"It is the purpose of The State to publish from time to time the names 
of the Soldiers in the Revolutionary War, as they have been culled from 
the quantity of loose documents discovered by Secretary of State Gantt, 
in the State House. It was thought for many years that the names of 
the men who fought under Marion, Sumter and Pickens had been lost; 
it is hoped that these papers will in a large measure restore them. While 
these rolls will be far from complete they will be of no little interest to 
the people of South Carolina of this generation, and will at least pre- 
serve the names, and the record of some of the deeds of our ancestors. 
These records have been edited by and are published under the super- 
vision of the Secretary of State." 

As originally published, those names beginning with the letter "C" 
followed those beginning with the letter "A" and those beginning with 
"B" came later. They are here alphabetically arranged, but otherwise 
will be printed as originally given. It is to be regretted that the list 
closed with the letter "H" and no attempt was made to complete it. 
As the office of the "State" was destroyed by fire and all papers burned, 
it is extremely difficult to get hold of a copy at present. 

The list of soldiers which follows were, in part, published by the 
Daughters of the American Revolution in their monthly magazine, first 
known as the "American Monthly Magazine," Volume 42, No. 3, issue 
for March, 1913, at page 140. The name was changed to the "Daughters 
of the American Revolution Magazine" and this list continued through 
the six numbers of Volume 43, that is, the issues for the months of July, 
August, September, October, November, and December, 1913, and through 
No. 1 of Volume 44, that is, the issue for the month of January, 1914 
In the last issue a notice of discontinuance of publishing the list of sol- 
diers was given and, by the courtesy of Mrs. Amos G. Draper, Genea- 
logical Editor of that magazine, the unpublished portion of said list of 
soldiers was very generously furnished by her to the Publication Com- 
mittee for inclusion in this book. The portion of the list already pub- 
lished has been repeated here in order to make it as complete as possible. 
Further, the Secretary of State of South Carolina was written to in the 
hope that in some way the remainder of the list not originally published 
in The State could be secured.

Sailors, Marines and Officers 

of the 
American Navy 

During the 
War of the American Revolution 



There does not appear to exist any complete or well denned list, in 
printed form, of the Sailors, Marines and Officers of the American Navy 
during the War of the American Revolution. There are many records 
in existence in the offices of the United States Government at Washington, 
and original documents and papers most carefully preserved in the Library 
of Congress. A few printed authorities have appeared to which reference 
has been made in the bibliography and record sources of Revolutionary 
service presented in the earlier pages of this volume. These are ex- 
cellent and authoritative as far as they go. In addition nearly all of the 
original thirteen colonies maintained vessels and ships, which while not 
organized so closely as a navy, participated with great force and vigor 
in the conflict. The records and lists of the officers and sailors manning 
these vessels and ships are to be found in the various state archives 
and with one or two important exceptions are not in print. 

On account of the situation as outlined in the foregoing, the Publi- 
cation Committee has judged that it would add to the value of this 
publication, as a reference book, and for the special purposes for which 
it is published to include the following list of Sailors, Marines and Officers 
of the American Navy during the War of the American Revolution. It 
should be specifically noted that this list is incomplete; and also, that 
several lists which are in print and more or less acceptable are expressly 
omitted. The names given upon the following pages have been gathered 
from the sources indicated at the head of each list of names. Due and 
proper acknowledgment are here given to The Naval History Society, with 
headquarters at 247 5th Avenue, New York City, Mr. Robert W. Nesser, 
secretary; and to the Library of Congress, Washington, D. C., and Miss 
Maud Burr Morris of the latter city, a very courteous and competent 
genealogist for the courtesy and co-operation given to the Publication 
Committee, both in procuring for printing and in permitting to be re- 
printed the records here given.

Note. A comparison of names given in Paullin's Naval History, on 
which Allen based his list, shows some discrepancies, as follows: 
Joseph Nicholson (instead of James); Thos. Grennel (.not Grinnell); 
and, in the Marine List, Maj. Samuel Nichols (not Nicholas). Editor. 



THE AMERICAN NAVY 



403 



Quoted from Gardner W. Allen's "Naval History of the American 
Revolution" in two volumes. 



"A list of Revolutionary officers was compiled in 1794, 'formed 
from Minutes of the Marine Committee and Navy Boards, and from 
Rolls of the several vessels.' A previous list had been given out by 
the Board of Admiralty, September, 1781, which is an incomplete 
register of the officers of that date. The following list has been made 
up from these two lists. The names of Captains which are numbered, 
comprise those appointed October 10, 1776, in order of rank. The 
numbered Lieutenants were commissioned October 12, 1776; some 
had earlier commissions, the date of which is given when known. An- 
nexed to the main list will be found a number of names not included 
in either old list, but comprises officers commissioned in France and 
other places. To make a wholly complete and accurate list would be 
impossible."

Supplemental 

of Members and Ancestors 



Since the page proofs for this book were corrected and returned to 
the printer, thus preventing any further expansion of the main body of the 
book, the following gentlemen have been admitted to membership in the 
Society, Sons of the Revolution, in the State of California. 

As it is the desire of the Editors to make this work as complete as 
possible in every particular, the names, addresses and Revolutionary Ances- 
tors of such new members are here included, thus bring the contents to a 
close as of May first, nineteen-fifteen.

QQonument (^)o Q/ou 



The coming generations will form their estimate of those which have 
preceeded them by the manner in which they shall have preserved for them, 
the historic and patriotic features of their times. It is certain that one of 
the greatest monuments possible to erect is builded of literature, history, 
books and libraries. 

Every one may not be able to present books, records and exhibits which 
shall be preserved to posterity in suitable quarters, carefully cared for, but 
there are other ways in w r hich generous persons may build for themselves 
and descendants monuments of enduring value. 

Possibly you may possess genealogical books, genealogical or historical 
manuscripts or notes, or historical collections bearing upon American His- 
tory and patriotic subjects; possibly you have a desire to assist through some 
other means because you do not possess such books or records to present to 
such an organization as ours ; possibly it may take the form of a bequest of 
money or a trust fund, or the income from some source, or the gift of real 
estate or a memorial building and hall, with means to maintain, suitable to 
the gift. Whatever it may be, remember that your making this Society 
the beneficiary under your will, is 'a monument not only to your own good 
name, that of your family descendants and ancestors, but is a more positive 
testimonial of your patriotism and loyalty to the great American Cause, the 
making permanent of the early history and days of this country, than almost 
anything else you can do. 

To the thousands of friends and members of the Cause, and users of 
the privileges of our Hall and Library, it will be a permanent and abiding 
mounment to those whose interest, whose efforts and loyalty have made 
themselves immortal and everlasting. 

Therefore, the following suggestions may prove of value now, in help- 
ing you to place yourself and your memory permanently in generous recol- 
lection before the patriotic and loyal members of the United States of 
America Our Country. 



FORM of BEQUEST 

I give and bequeath to the "Society of the Sons of the Revolution, in 
the State of California," a corporation organized under the laws of the 
State of California, for its corporate purposes, the sum of dollars. 



FORM of DEVISE of ALL REAL PROPERTY 

I give and devise to the "Society of the Sons of the Revolution in the 
State of California," a corporation organized under the laws of the State 
of California, for its corporate purposes, all that certain lot, piece or parcel 
of land; (here describe the property). 



FORM of BEQUEST of PERSONAL PROPERTY 

I give and bequeath to the "Society of the Sons of the Revolution in 
the State of California," a corporation organized under the laws of the 
State of California, for its corporate purposes, certain personal property, 
to wit: (Here describe the property, books, manuscripts, etc.) 



LIBRARY, ARCHIVES and MUSEUM 

The Society, Sons of the Revolution, in the State of California with a 
membership of about 250 and growing rapidly, maintains its permanent 
headquarters and library at 814 San Fernando Building, Los Angeles. 
This Society is a corporation, organized under the laws of California. 

The Society appeals to the general public and to all interested in the 
maintenance and upbuilding of sound American patriotism and in the dis- 
semination of facts and teachings of American history, for contributions and 
gifts of books, pamphlets, manuscripts, magazines, newspapers or clippings 
and periodicals, either current or out of print, bearing particularly upon 
Revolutionary and Colonial history; records and lists of Revolutionary 
soldiers and immigrants; state, county and town histories; genealogies, 
biographies, heraldic and kindred compositions, marriage, birth and death 
records, etc. This appeal is made particularly to authors, compilers, gen- 
ealogists and historians, also to genealogical, biographical and historical 
societies and associations. 

The objects of this Society are patriotic and civic, entirely unselfish 
and not mercenary. 

The funds of the Society are obtained by moderate dues and voluntary 
contributions, therefore books cannot be readily purchased. 

The library in connection with the Society is one of the recognized 
libraries of the City of Los Angeles and State of California, and while 
under private control, is open to the public and used by approximately five 
thousand people yearly. It embraces about two thousand volumes and pub- 
lications, many being rare works. Being restricted to its specific field of 
work, it is more extensive proportionately than many municipal and county 
libraries. 

Whoever may read this announcement and feel inclined to aid a 
worthy and truly American cause, is most earnestly solicited to donate any 
books, pamphlets, manuscripts or things of an historical nature, etc., to this 
library, for which due credit will be given and a courteous acknowledgment 
of the Society's gratitude.

Qame J^ndex 



Note. As its title implies, this index is confined to the names appear- 
ing in this book. Attention is called, however, to. the fact that names 
appearing in the sections entitled "References" in the subdivision entitled 
"Revolutionary Soldiers and Lineage" are not indexed. This is true of all 
names appearing solely as or in references. With this exception every name 
in the book is carried in this index. 

Attention is also called to the fact that variations in spelling have not, 
as a rule, been cross-indexed. The name appears once only in the index, 
and then in the same form as found in the body of the book. As many of 
the names indexed are from original records they appear in both the body of 
the book and this index in the same quaint forms of spelling so often encoun- 
tered in the original records of the Revolutionary Period. For example, 
the name "John Wright" does not appear in this index. The name of 
"John W/mght" does appear, but is indexed as spelled in the body of 
the book and not cross-indexed. 

Therefore, in consulting this index, care should be used to look for 
every possible form of spelling the name sought for.
