perptpr(^, 60151)., i§9^'
The name of Lincoln, variously spelled, was a common one
in Hingham, Norfolk County, England, for many years before
the settlement of America, and it is quite probable that the
settlers of that name in Hingham, on the Massachusetts Bay,
were from that town.
There were eight mature male persons bearing the name of
Lincoln who were early found in Hingham, Mass. Daniel Lin-
coln, who died unmarried, April 3, 1640, and his brothers Sam-
uel Lincoln, and Thomas Lincoln the weaver, Daniel Lincoln
the sergeant, Stephen Lincoln and his brother Thomas Lincoln
the husbandman, Thomas Lincoln the cooper, and Thomas
Lincoln the miller. All of these, with the exception of the first
mentioned Daniel, and Thomas the weaver, left families, and
from these Hingham Lincolns have descended nearly all who
now bear the name.
The object of this work, primarily, is to record conveniently
the descendants of Stephen Lincoln of Oakham, Mass. [he be-
ing a descendant of Thomas Lincoln the miller], all being
within easy lines of consanguinity, the most remote being
cousins in the third degree. And, secondarily, as a matter of
general interest, to record the ancestry of Stephen Lincoln, so
far as the various lines can be followed; and it is a pleasing cir-
cumstance to note, that in tracing back four generations from
Stephen, there are but two unknown family names, these being
the wives of Richard Stacey and William Robinson. Of the
generation immediately preceding these, many are English
people who remained upon their native soil, and of whom it
is difficult to learn.
No genealogy of the Lincoln family is designed, this effort
being nothing more than a contribution to such a work should
one ever be attempted. It has been made brief in its text, but

as full in its facts as circumstances have allowed, and it is
hoped that it contains but few errors or blunders.
The compiler has made use of all material that has come in
his way, taking freely from the text of published works, and
desires to acknowledge his indebtedness to their authors.
Public records have served to supply very much of the earlier
history and the kindness of friends has made possible the later
portions. To all of these the compiler tenders his acknowl-
The work is divided for convenience into two parts. The
first contains the record of the ancestry of Stephen Lincoln, and
the second relates to Stephen and his descendants. Owing to
difficulty in arranging the two parts symmetrically by reason of
their diverse character, two indexes have been prepared, that
to part first referring \.o pages, while that to part second refers
to numbers, all the names in this portion being consecutively
THE ANCESTRY OF STEPHEN LINCOLN.
A star (*) prefixed to a name signifies that the person's number and family
occur in the succeeding generation, the number being in the center of the line
directly over the family record.
Thomas Lincoln was born in England about 1603. He
came to New England in 1635, and settled in Hingham on the
Massachusetts Bay, and July 3, 1636, had a house-lot of five
acres granted him on what is now South street, near Main.
Other lots were also assigned him for planting purposes. Be-
fore 1650 he removed with his family to Taunton, and estab-
lished a grist-mill upon a little stream now called Mill River,
at a point now nearly in the heart of the city, near the street
leading from the railway station to the City Square. Tradi-
tion says that in this mill King Philip and his chiefs met with
the pioneers of the town for a peaceful conference. Mr. Lincoln
was probably brought up to the miller's trade, and continued in
this business during his residence in Taunton. He was com-
monly known as Thomas, "the miller," as a distinguishing title
from the several other Thomas Lincolns of Hingham, who
were also known by the titles of their avocations.
Not much of fact in the lives of the early settlers of this
country can be learned after the lapse of nearly three cen-
turies, but such items as have been preserved are worthy of
record, though not of themselves possessing much importance.
Among such items relating to Thomas Lincoln is one preserved
in the quaint records of the Plymouth Colony, informing us of
his service as a member of a jury, convened to inquire into the

facts of the death of a young man named Thomas Cooke, given
in this wise:
" Tho Cooke aged about twenty yeares, late of Ipswidge, trauelling towards
Equednett, accompanied with a youth about Twelue yeares of age, both of them
lodging att the ordenary att Taunton the 2cond day of May, 1650. and vppon
the loth day of the said month the body of the aforsaid Tho Cooke was found
dead in the riuer of Taunton about six miles from the towne. Whervppon a
jury of twelue men was empannelled t o inquire how and by what meanes hee
came by yt vntimly death." " The eleuenth day of May the jury brought in
theire verdict, yt the youth by the aduise of the said Tho Cooke, did take a
cannowe without the knowlidge of the owner thereof, and making hast away
lest hee should bee pursewed, did stand in the end of the canoowe to paddle it
away, and did fall into the riuer and so by yt accident was drowned and came to
Other quaint records of jury duty might be quoted, but one
will sufifice. June 4, 1650, Thomas Lincoln was appointed one
of the " survayors of Hiewayes " for Taunton. The land
records of Bristol County show many evidences of title to es-
tates possessed by Thomas Lincoln, and he is reputed to have
been the largest land owner in the Town of Taunton in his
time. He was a man of substance. We learn of him in con-
nection with a very interesting industry early established in
that new country. Iron ore had early been discovered to be
abundant in the flats bordering on Two Mile River and other
localities in Taunton, and in October, 1652, steps were taken to
establish the first iron works in the Old Colony in Taunton,
and leading citizens of the town, interested in the enterprise,
formed a stock company. Among " the names of those who hath
put themselves to be proprietors in the Bloomerie," were Thomas
Lincoln, Sen., Richard Williams, Richard Stacey, and George
Watson, all ancestors of Stephen Lincoln of Oakham.
The building of a dam across Two Mile River, preparing the
timber for the necessary buildings, obtaining from abroad the
hammers and heavy machinery and tools required for the man-
ufacture of bar-iron, occupied a long time before the works
could be put in practical operation, but this was finally accom-
plished in 1656, In 1660 the works were leased to George
Hall, Hezekiah Hoar, and Francis Smith, "to whom full liberty
was given that they might take into this contract with them-
selves, whom they liked of." They took into the partnership,
among others, Thomas Lincoln, Sen., and Jonah Austin, Sen.
PART FIRST. 7
(another ancestor of Stephen Lincoln). These works thus
early established, remained in operation until 1883, when the
old buildings were demolished and the dam and foundation
walls alone remained of the ancient Taunton Iron Works of
two and a quarter centuries, the oldest successful iron manu-
factory in New England. A fact worth noticing in connection
with this industry relates to the use of the iron manufactured
at these works, as currency. The pioneer settlers were greatly
embarrassed in their business transactions by the scarcity of
money. They had very little specie, there were no banks, no
Bank of England notes were in circulation, and so resort was
made to the bar-iron made at the Taunton works as a "circu-
lating medium of exchange," at about twenty shillings per hun-
dred. It entered largely into the transactions of business, and,
as iron was as much in demand in Dorchester and Boston as in
Taunton, these works, of which Thomas Lincoln was a proprie-
tor, proved in more ways than one a blessing to the people.
Thomas Lincoln brought with him to this country, probably,
two or three children. Of the identity of his wife there is no
trace, but he married for a second wife, Elizabeth Streete, Dec.
10, 1665. She was the widow of Francis Streete, by whom she
had one child, a daughter, Mary.
The will of Thomas Lincoln was made August 28, 1683, when
he was about eighty years of age, and was proved at Plymouth,
March 5, 1683-4. He left an estate valued at ^205: 8.
Here follows the will and inventory of his estate :

disclosed property valued at ;^2S8 : 3:7 (Bristol Probate, ii, 131).
July 2, 1705, his widow petitioned that administration be granted
his eldest son, Joseph Willis of Taunton. His children, so far as
we know :
i. Joseph, b. .
ii. Thomas, b. .
Thomas Lincoln, Jr. (distinguished in the records by the
title of grand senior), was born, probably in England, and was
baptized in Hingham in Feb. 1637-8, by Rev. Peter Hobart.
He early became a resident of Taunton. He married Mary,
daughter of Jonah and Constance Austin. He was a husband-
man. Oct. ii, 1662, in consideration of 40 shillings he sold to
Daniel Gushing of Hingham " all my great lot containing
16 acres, lately given me by Thomas Lincklon my father, lying
in the township of Hingham on the Great Plaine, and was
given by the inhabitants of Hingham unto the said Thomas
Linkon my father " — (Suffolk Deeds, iv, 65.) We do not know
much of the life of this Thomas Lincoln, but the Plymouth Gol-
ony Record (iv, 90) discloses an item of interest as follows. At
a court held at Plymouth, March 7, 1664-5, "Thomas Lin-
korne Senir for breaking the Kings peace, was fined 3s. 4d."
What his particular offense was is not intimated, but in those
early days it was an easy matter for the best citizens to break
the " Kings peace " with very little effort.
Thomas Lincoln died, probably, not far from 1694, for early
in that year he distributed his property to his surviving chil-
dren, reserving a life maintenance, as evidenced by the follow-
ing deeds: It will be observed that he mentions his " present
wife," but whether he refers to Mary Austin, or a second wife,
we have no knowledge.

mutinous conduct in " breaking away from the army," with
others, under the lead of Lieutenant Robert Barker, " when
they were on theire march," Lieutenant Barker "by his exam-
ple alureing others to come away with him to the great scan-
doll, prejudice and disparragement of the collonie." For this
misconduct he was fined the amount of his pay, eight pounds.
PARI FIRST. It
He married Mary, daughter of Richard and Abigail Stacey.
Richard Stacey died in 1687, and December 7th of that year
Thomas Lincohi was appointed administrator on his estate.
He married (2d) Nov. 14, 1689, Susanna Smith, daughter of
Samuel. She was born Jan. 25, 1664. We find no will recorded
to him, and the date of his death is unknown. By a deed
dated March 3, 171 1-2, recorded in Bristol Land Records
(vii, 169), we know he had at least one son.
*4. I. Nathaniel, b. about 1684.
Nathaniel Lincoln, born in Taunton about 1684. In the
military forces he held the rank of sergeant. In his will he
directs that " my grand son, son of my son Nathaniel Linkon,
he shall have and hold my gun, powder horns, bullets, shott,
and all appurtenances belonging to military accoutrements, he
to have and hold ye same forever." The name of this grand-
son is not given. He married Alice, daughter of Capt. John
and Alice (Shaw) Andrews. He was engaged in the milling
business, with his father-in-law, at Three Mile River, a point
three miles west from Taunton, which place was known for
more than a century as "Andrews Mills," but now called
Westville. Nathaniel conducted a grist-mill, while Capt. An-
drews attended to the saw-mill. This is shown by deed from
Andrews to Lincoln recorded in Bristol Land Records (xxi, 505),
dated June 3, 1732, in which for the consideration of fifty
pounds is conveyed "one quarter part of that land on which the
grist mill standeth which was built by said Nathaniel Linkon,
Edmond Andrews, Seth Andrews and myself, on the River
called three mile River in Taunton aforesaid, on which River
my saw mill also standeth, also to have one quarter part of the
privilege of the streem of water that will be nessary for ye
grist mill," etc.
'James Minor Lincoln in his book, " The Lincoln Family and Branches,"
gives him also Thomas and Jonathan, and perhaps others.

Nathaniel Lincoln Jr., born in Taunton in 1725. He mar-
ried, Oct. II, 1743, Elizabeth Robinson, daughter of Increase,
Jr., and Mehitabel (Williams) Robinson. His first two chil-
dren were probably born in Taunton. He removed to Reho-
both, where, Dec. 27, 1750, he purchased a homestead of Na-
thaniel Cobb, " a House where ye sd Nathaniell Einkon now
dwells, with ye Cedar Swamps adjoyning thereto." He re-
moved from Rehoboth to New Braintree, Mass., probably in
1759, and Jan. 6, 1763, purchased of David Gilbert, Jr., of that
town, a tract of nineteen acres lying in lot 9 of the "Braintree
Grant of 6000 acres so called," which he describes as " a Piece
of Land on which my House stands, and that I now own by
virtue of a deed from Beriah Haws dated ye eleventh day of
April 1759," showing that he was already a resident. He
added to the area of his farm by a purchase of four acres of
adjoining land July 6th following, and July 27, 1770, obtained
five acres more. His farm appears to have been located
" North of the road leading to the meeting house," and he
conveyed it in May, 1774, to his son Nathaniel, " with the con-
sent of Elizabeth my present wife." He removed to Peters-
ham, Mass., probably in 1778, as in that year he obtained a
leasehold there, as will appear later. March 17, 1784, he
bought the farm formerly owned by Henry Chase, the father
of his son-in-law. He is in this deed described as "of Peters-
ham." The price of this farm was ^600.
His father, in his will of Oct. 17, 1757, bequeaths to Nathan-
iel, "over and above what I have already given him, & paid to
one Elisha Bosworth towards his settlement, and lands I con-
veyed him at a place called Three Mile River, I give him now
fifteen pounds lawful money to be paid to sd Nathaniel within
three years after my decease, by my son Ichabod Linkon or
his heirs. And further I give sd son Nathaniel Linkon his
heirs and assigns forever, all my Cedar Swamp in Taunton
Great Cedar swamp, & in a cedar swamp called Crooked
Meadow Cedar Swamp within ye townships of sd Taunton and
Raynham, (that called ye burnt ground only excepted.) I
also give sd Nathaniel his heirs and assigns forever, one half
my interest in a grist mill known by ye name of Capt Andrews
mill. I also give my sd son Nathaniel Linkon his heirs and
assigns forever, all my whole interest in Taunton old township
within sd County, with lands due thereon and right to all com-
monage in said property, and after my wifes widowhood I give
him one half of all my husbandry tools as shall be left at her
decease, and all my wearing apparel, and all I have heretofore
given sd son he to have and hold ye same after my wifes de-
cease or at time of her intermarriage, if she should do so."
His father died March 22, 1761, but before he died, on the 6th
of March, he revoked, in a codicil, his gift of the cedar swamps,
the interest in the grist-mill, and the ten pounds (a previous
codicil having reduced the original gift of ^15 to ^10), and
gave them to his son Ichabod. Why this action was taken
does not appear, but it may have been the result of displeas-
ure at his son's removal to New Braintree, which event prob-
ably occurred in 1759.
Where Nathaniel Lincoln removed to from Petersham is not
positively known. The last recorded item we find relating to
him is the seizure by the sheriff of a leasehold, "a certain
piece of land on the east side of the great road in Petersham,
leased by Thomas Clement to Lincoln for ten years from Oct
17 1778, containing buildings possessed by sd Lincoln." This
action was to satisfy a judgment against him of ^45 : 02 : 01,
in favor of the estate of John Chandler, the value of the un-
expired term of the lease being consideration sufficient to sat-
isfy judgment and costs. The record states that at this time
Nathaniel Lincoln, the debtor, was "absent." Undoubtedly
this stress in his affairs was brought about by the exceedingly
depressed financial condition of the country during the years
immediately succeeding the close of the Revolutionary War.
A tradition in the family relates that Nathaniel Lincoln
went to New Marlborough, where his wife died, and then,
after living for a time with his son Stephen in Oakham, he re-
moved to Attleborough, where he died, over eighty years of
age. The truth of this tradition has not been ascertained, as
no records have been found to confirm it.
PART FIRST. IQ
Nathaniel, b. probably in Taunton. He removed with his
father to New Braintree, where he followed the trade of a
tanner. He purchased of his father in 1774 a farm in New
Braintree, on the north side of the road leading to the meet-
ing-house. He m. in Oakham (published), June 7, 1791,
widow Ruth Delanoe. (Probably a second marriage, though
we have no record of a former one.) He removed to Sag
Harbor, L. I.; then resided temporarily in Hartford, Conn.;
but returned to Sag Harbor, where lie was living in 1809.
He had two sons and one daughter. One son, Lemuel Lin-
coln, d. in Hartford, Aug. 23, i8og. On his gravestone in
the North Burying-ground in Hartford is this inscription :
" In Memory of Lemuel Lincoln who died Aug 23 1809,
aged 31 years.
" Farewell dear friend ; where thou, we trust, art gone,
Adieus and farewells are a sound unknown.
May we but meet thee on that peaceful shore.
The parting sound shall pass our lips no more."

THE OTHER LINES OF
STEPHEN LINCOLN'S ANCESTRY.
(So Far as Known.)
I. Jonah Austin came in the Hercules with wife Con-
stance, from Sandwich, County Kent, England. He was of
Tenterden, and mayor of that borough. He settled perhaps
first at Cambridge, then called Newtown, for about 1638 he
sold there " two acres of planting ground in the west end."
He is found in Hingham as early as 1635, but did not remain
there many years, for in 1643 he was in Taunton. In 1650 he
sold his possessions in Hingham to John Beal, Sr., consisting
of his home-lot of four acres with house and barn, eight acres
of land in Hockley Neck, and four acres at Broad Cove. At
about this time he purchased from William Holloway his home-
lot in Taunton, consisting of about six acres with the buildings
thereon, and some forty-five acres more in various locations, a
lot of twenty-six acres being "about two mile distant from the
towne." He "took the oath of fidellitie" June 3, 1657. He
was one of the partners in the Taunton Iron Works in 1660,
and is recorded at various times as a juryman. His wife died
April 22, 1667, and he died in Taunton July 30, 1683. We

I, Richard Stacey was in Taunton in 1643, and is found
on the list of those able to bear arms at that time. His wife
was Abigail . In 1648 he was " servayor for the Hye-
wayes," and again in 1657. He is recorded as on jury duty in
1650, 1651, 1653, and 1664. He was one of the original share-
holders in the Taunton Iron Works in 1653-4, and this is all
we have been able to learn of him. He died in 1687, and his
son-in-law, Thomas Lincoln, was granted administration on
his estate December 7th of that year. We know of but one

I. John Andrews is found in Boston in 1656. The Bible
record still in the possession of the family, says he was " a sea-
cooper, and came from Wales to America." He died in
Boston June 25, 1679, and the inventory of his effects includes
" tooles and coopers stuffe," dwelling house and grounds, and
household goods. He married Hannah Jackson, daughter of
Edmund and Martha Jackson of Boston. After the death of
her husband she married John Dickinson. John Andrews*
first wife was Lucy , who died Sept. i, 1653, but probably
left no children.

2. John Andrews, born in Boston Sept. 20, 1662, was a
housewright. In 1692 he purchased several tracts of land and
a dwelling house in New Bristol (now Bristol, R. I.) of Thomas
Lewis of Mendon, and resided there. In 1701 he sold this
property and purchased a farm in Taunton, including a water
privilege on the bank of Three Mile River, where, with Na-
thaniel Lincoln, he built a grist-mill and a saw-mill, and the
location was known as " Andrews Mills " for about a century,
but is now called Westville. Here he passed the remainder of
his life. He held the military title of captain ; held various
town offices ; was chairman of the Board of Selectmen four
years, also deputy sheriff. He was a man highly esteemed.
He died July 25, 1742, at the age of 80 years. He married

a freeman of Taunton, May 29, 1670. June 5, 167 1, he was
appointed "Surveyor of Highwaies," and Oct. 30, 1678, was
given authority to make seizure of liquor brought illegally into
the town. He is several times found serving upon the jury in
Taunton. He was an early settler upon the " Mount Hope
Lands," which tract was deeded by Taunton to the settlers
there Sept. 14, 1680, this action being confirmed by the
General Court on the 29th, and a new town which was called
Bristol, organized Sept. i, 1681. This town was annexed
to Rhode Island Jan. 27, 1746-7: Increase Robinson was one
of the persons admitted to citizenship of this town on its
organization, and May 22, 1682, was chosen constable, an office
of much importance, refusal to accept which created the
liability to a fine of four pounds. Bar-iron made at the Taun-
ton Iron Works being in the early days an acceptable " cir-
culating medium," we find Increase Robinson availing himself
of it to pay his minister, Rev. Mr. Danforth, as here appears.

I. Abraham Shaw married in Northowram, Parish of
Halifax, Yorkshire, England, June 24, 16 16, Bridget Best,
daughter of Henry, of Ovenden. She was baptized April 9,
1592. He came to America and was an early proprietor of
Watertown, and was admitted freeman March 9, 1636-7. His
house and goods were burned in Watertown in October, 1636,
and he probably removed to Dedham immediately after and
was one of the first subscribers to the covenant in that town.
In 1637 he had a grant of half the coal and iron to be found in
the common lands, which must have discouraged him, for he
died the following year, after executing the following will,
which he omitted to date. " Memorandum, that if it please
almyghtie God to take me to his mercye by death, That it is
my minde & will that my estate shal be disposed of as follow-
eth. (that is to say), I bequeathe to my sonne John & Martha
Shawe, being infants, ten pownds betweene them, also betweene
the aforesd Martha & Marye I leave as much quicke goods as

Joseph & John shall have my lott att Dedham equally to be
devided between them Also that all the rest of my estate
whatsoever be devided, proportionate, betweene all my chil-
dron." This will was witnessed by Nicholas Biram and Joseph
Shawe, who were also ordered by the court to " make an In-
ventorye of the estate by the helpe and advice of Mr. Edward
Allen." The children were baptized in Northowram, except

meeting of the proprietors, Aug. 18, 1636, he was one of seven
persons to receive a grant of twelve acres of land. His lot
was located on what is now High Street, not far from the
railroad station. He shortly got into trouble by a somewhat
indiscriminate use of his axe, as the following record reveals :
"Dec 31 1636. Wheras Nicholas Phillips hath felled cteyne
trees wthout his Lott wthout licence contrary to an order
made in that behalfe, Therefore he is fyned to pay unto ye
Collector for the use of ye Town the sum of Ten shillings."
He removed to Weymouth in 1640 ; was made freeman May

Weymouth " to the General Court at Boston. He was deacon
in the church. His will was made June 2, 167 1, and proved

wife Margaret and children followed in the Ann, in the summer
of 1623. He settled in Plymouth, and received a grant of four
acres of land, " that goeth in wth a corner by ye ponde." The
earlier settlers were arranged in " lotts" or companies, for the
more convenient division of the common stock of cattle among
them. To the lot in which Robert Hicks and his family were

pounds to be paid in corn or cattle. May 7th of the same year
he deeded to William Brett of " Duxborrow," for a considera-
tion of seven pounds, seven acres of upland at Island Creek,
" in the noock towards the Sea," and the following year con-

STEPHEN LINCOLN AND HIS DESCENDANTS.
Stephen Lincoln was born in Rehoboth, Mass., Dec. 3,
175 1. He removed to New Braintree with his father about
1759. He learned the tanner's trade, and may perhaps have
been associated with his elder brother Nathaniel in the busi-
ness. He served in the Revolutionary war from August, 1778,
to February, 1779, in the Rhode Island campaign, in which
General John Sullivan attempted unsuccessfully the siege of
He married in Oakham April 29, 1779, Lydia Foster, daugh-
ter of Lieut. Ebenezer and Hannah (Parlin) Foster. At
this time he settled in Oakham, and built, according to
tradition, a log house on Bogel Hill, where several of his chil-
dren were born. This was in the vicinity of the farm owned
by his father-in-law, which he had bought and settled upon in
1756. March 6, 1783, Stephen Lincoln purchased of the estate
of Silas Hill, a tract of ninety-two acres, upon which he was
probably then living, at a cost of ;^2oi. Nov. 9, 1787, he
bought of Ala Adams of Natick fifty acres more adjoining his
first purchase, and the following year, June nth, Ezi'a Pepper
of New Braintree conveyed to him twenty-five acres in addi-
tion, also adjoining. April 27, 1790, he secured twenty-four
acres more from Nehemiah Putnam of Sutton, it being part of
the farm once owned by Thomas Bogel. About 1784 he built
a large house, in the fashion of the day, which is still standing
in a good state of preservation, on the north side of the road
leading from Rutland to Barre Plains. It is located at the foot

of a hill, on the top of which is the house formerly occupied
by Lieutenant Foster, his father-in-law, and in which his wife
was born. This has now passed into the hands of strangers.
An excellent picture of the house as it now appears is given as

that in the chimney
of this building he
concealed his mon-
ey, placed in an old shoe, during the time the British
General Burgoyne's army was barracked at Rutland, near
by, in the days of the Revolutionary war. Stephen Lin-
coln was a member of the Oakham Congregational church,
and was chosen chorister June 17, 1779. He held the
office of highway surveyor in 1781, 1792, and 1798. He was
warden in 1784, and selectman in 1791 and 1798. He is re-
membered as a man of imposing appearance, large and tall,
while his wife was small of stature. The portrait of Mr. Lin-
coln here given, is from a pencil sketch made a few years

before his death, by Miss Elizabeth Davis of Boston. It is the
only picture of him extant, and is said to have been an excel-
lent likeness. He died in Oakham March i6, 1840, and his
wife died April 8, 1839. They are buried in the cemetery
on the Barre Plains road, about two miles northwesterly from
Oakham Center. The following simple inscriptions are to be
seen on their gravestones:

It will be observed that Stephen Lincoln's age at death as
recorded on the stone is erroneous. He was 89 at the time of
his death. A fact worth calling attention to is the large num-
ber of his grandchildren. There were sixty-five, a large num-
ber of them attaining mature years. The children were all
born in Oakham.

Levi Lincoln went to Boston when a young man and en-
gaged there as a gold-beater, but about 1813 removed to Hart-
ford, Conn., and followed for a few years the business of
manufacturing hand cards. He subsequently returned to Bos-
ton, but came again to Hartford about 1828 where he perma-
nently settled, and in 1832 became agent of the Hartford Card
Manufactory then located on Ann street. Machine cards
were made by a machine invented by Mr. Amos Whittemore of
Cambridge, for which he took a patent in 1797. Mr. Lincoln
made improvements upon the card-making machine that
remain to this day. At one time the concern on Ann street
PART SECOND. .,
had on its books the names of nine hundred women and
children, scattered about the country, who were employed
at odd times in setting the wire teeth of the cards. Mr. Lin-
coln's improvement for punching holes in the leather and
inserting the teeth by a continuous process, put an end to this
domestic industry. Mr. Lincoln invented the hook and eye
machine, the Lincoln molasses gate, now very largely used, the
Lincoln lathe, the Lincoln milling machine, friction and split
Li 1834 he established on Arch street the works subse-
quently known as The. Phoenix Iron Works, and in 1841 became
associated with his son under the name of George S. Lincoln
& Co., and a large business in the manufacture of lathes,
pulleys, shafting, and small tools resulted. Gun tools of
recognized superiority were made in large quantities for the
armories of Europe and the United States. A good deal of
machinery for silk mills was also made here. About 1846 Mr.
Lincoln became deeply interested in experiments for discover-
ing the utilities of electro-plating, and a new and valuable line
of business was developed, in the hands of Mr. William Rogers,
with whom he had been associated in this direction. In 1859
he retired from active business, and for some years before his
death was the victim of persistent and protracted ill-health.
Mr. Lincoln was for many years a member of Dr. Bushnell's
church, and later of the South Congregational church.

years, then settled in Watertown, Mass., and engaged for him-
self in the provision business, in which enterprise he was very
successful. While a resident of Watertown he and his wife
labored with great zeal to build up the Phillips church. On
account of broken health, he relinquished his business in
Watertown in 1856 and removed to Newton, but while living
there carried on a large packing business at the West, which,
although successful at first, finally, under the stress of hard
times, became a failure. After the Civil War he removed with

and in 1874 to Kansas City, where he entered into trade.
After the death of his wife in 1881, he returned to Newton for

a department in the works of the Elizabethport Cordage
Company. His mechanical ingenuity was remarkable, and
although the manufacture of rope was to him a new business,
his aptitude in adapting himself to changed conditions was
such, and the application of his inventive genius so conducive
to favorable results, that in a short time the firm was manufac-
turing rope that became famous. In 1861 he was sent to Eng-

CHILDREN OF ENOCH AND LUCY (LINCOLN) GOODALE. (5)
Stephen Lincoln Goodale, born in Quampegan (South
Berwick), Maine, Aug. 14, iSi5. Resides in Saco, Maine. He
married in liangor, Sept. 23, 1838, Prudence Aiken Nourse,
daughter of Benjamin Jr. and Mary (Goodale) Nourse. She
was born in Bangor Dec. 8, 1820, and died in Saco Jan. 21,
1885. The children were born in Saco.

Bowdoin College in 1874 ; was a teacher for some years in
Colorado and California ; graduated from Harvard Medical
School in 1888, and is now engaged in the practice of
medicine in Saco.
*i72. V. Alfred Montgomery Goodale, b. Dec. 20, 1S55.
Mr. (roodale's father removed to Saco the year following his
son's birth, where he followed his trade of bookbinder, adding
to this the sale of books and, as was the custom then, of
medicines. From his earliest youth the inquiring and studious
lad was surrounded by books and chemicals, and was brought
into contact with many physicians and teachers who frequented
his father's shop. His taste for investigation was stimulated
by the preceptor of the newly established Thornton Academy,
in which he afterwards received a sound preparatory educa-
tion. Instead of proceeding to college as did most of his
classmates he returned to assist in the composite business
of his father until his relinquishment to the son in 1837, mak-
ing himself acquainted with all of its details, and entering with
zeal into special chemical studies connected with pharmacy
and agriculture. Inheriting rural tastes, needing open air
e.Kercise, and desiring more land than a town garden spot,
he bought in 1841 the place where he has since lived. Here
during more than forty years were carried on experiments in
the applications of science to plant life not only in agriculture,
but forestry, fruit, and flower culture, and artificial fer-
tilizers. In 1856 the legislature created a State Board of
PART SECOND. eg
Agriculture. Being strongly urged to accept its secretaryship
he reluctantly consented, but becoming deeply interested in
the work continued his service by unanimous re-elections until
1873. His published works, covering a period of more than
twenty years, touch every branch of modern agriculture, and
are filled with sagacious suggestions which render many of them
even now of high value. One of his special studies in regard
to the principles of breeding domestic animals was published
in 1 86 1. In this work his wide information, his sagacity, and
his mature judgment are very conspicuous. He has given
special attention to the subject of artificial fertilizers adapted
to the needs of farmers in Maine, and he has been fortunate in
extending the range of utility of certain phosphates hitherto
thought to be of little importance. The vigor of his intellect
and his persistence in study are best shown by his acquisition
of the German language, sufficiently for his scientific reading,
at the age of sixty-five. During ten years he served as a
trustee and ten more as vice-president, and for more than
twenty years as president of the Saco and Biddeford Savings
Institution. In his eightieth year his alertness of mind is not
impaired. He takes constantly a deep interest in all scientific
and social questions.

Hon. Amos Clark, Jr., well known as a public man, com-

council of Elizabeth. He was elected the same year to the
State Senate and served until 1869. In 1872 he was elected to
Congress on the Republican ticket and served one term, and
it is said of him that no representative of his district ever did
so much, directly or indirectly, for its commercial interests.
He has been identified with most of the prominent enterprises
in Elizabeth. He established and for fourteen years was
president of the First National Bank. He was also the founder
and president of the National Fire &: Marine Insurance Com-
pany. The Newark & Elizabeth Horse Railroad Company was
also the result of his enterprise, and he held until 1872 the
office of its president. He was prominent in the establishment
of the State Agricultural Society and for years practically
carried it through all its difficulties, and until within a
few years was its president. His latest financial venture was
the establishment of the Citizens' Bank, of which he is now
president. He is and has been widely interested in real estate
projects, and much of the prosperity of Elizabeth is due to

Mr. Lincoln removed with his father to Hartford when he
was eight years of age. In 1841 he organized the firm of
George S. Lincoln &: Co., his father being associated with him,
and five years later his brother Charles was admitted to the
firm, which had become widely known as a manufacturer of
machinery. This business has been conducted to the present
day, without default, compromise, or law-suit — a remarkable
record. In 1884 Mr. Lincoln spent six months abroad for the
benefit of his health, which, however, did not become perma-
nently restored, and the following year he retired from busi-
ness. He subsequently suffered from impaired eyesight, which
gradually increased, until, several years before his death, he
became totally blind — an affliction which he bore with exem-
plary resignation and patience. For forty-eight years he was a
member of what is now known as the Park Church in Hart-
ford, which was formerly, and at the time of his connection
with it, under the pastorate of the famous Dr. Horace Bush-
nell. In his earlier years he served in the State militia, rising
to the grade of lieutenant in the old I>ight Guard, and was subse-
quently promoted to the position of Brigade Inspector on the
staff of General Waterman. Mr. Lincoln served in the Com-
mon Council six years, and two terms as a member of the
Board of Aldermen. He was for thirty-three years a director
in the old Hartford Bank ; was also director in the Orient In-
surance Company, the Syracuse Coal and Salt Company, and
the Spring Grove Cemetery Association. He was one of
Hartford's most influential citizens.
