INTRODUCTORY. 

Some ten years ag'O I was applied to b)' the late 
Edmund D. Halsey, Esquire, of Morristown, New Jersey, for 
information concerning the Edwards descendants of Rhoda 
Ogden, he having in hand a Genealogy of the descendants of 
Robert Ogden, 2d, father of Rhoda. I consulted the Tuttle 
Genealogy, which includes the Edwards family from the mar- 
riage of Elizabeth Tuttle with Richard Edwards, in 1667 ; also 
the Dwight and the Stoddard Genealogies ; but found all of 
them deficient and often unreliable for the generations later 
than Timothy Edwards, of Stockbridge. This called my atten- 
tion to the importance of preserving our family records while 
some members of the third generation from Timothy were still 
living. I myself belong to that generation, and I remember 
several of the children of Timothy, and knew part of these well. 

Thereupon I put myself in communication with Hamilton 
and Alexander Edwards ; with S. Tyler Williams and Mrs. 
Frances Whiting Mather, — the three last named now gone — 
and received from all cordial assistance. I found that Dr. 
Franklyn Ellsworth Edwards had for some time been at work 
on a list of the descendants of his great-grandfather, Edward 
Edwards, and he very kindly gave me his material, and there- 
after aided me much, even making several journeys to obtain 
further information. Mrs. Elizabeth Hooker Stanger contrib- 
uted a list of the descendants of her ancestress, Phebe Edwards, 
and ]Mr. Williams took hold zealously, and was at pains to trace 
the posterity of his grandmother, Sarah Edwards Tyler, by her 
first marriage with Benjamin Chaplin. From many others I 

also received aid.

There will, of course, be found errors, both of omission 
and commission, and I shall feel obliged to any one who will 
call my attention to them, in order that when the book reaches 
a second edition, correction may be made. 

The descendants here listed number very nearly twelve 
hundred, and they have lived, or do now live, mostly in Massa- 
chusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, 
Michigan, Ohio, and States west to the Pacific. There have 
been few in the other New England States, few at the South, 
and in Canada. The migration from Stockbridge was westerly.

GENEALOGY OF THE EDWARDS FAMILY. 



THE ANCESTORS OF TIMOTHY AND RHODA 
OGDEN EDWARDS. 

1. William Edwards, who came to this country from Eng- 
land about 1640, was the son of Rev. Richard Edwards, a 
clergyman of the Church of England, in the time of Elizabeth ; 

and was of Welsh parentage. He married Anne . 

After the death of her husband, she married James Coles, 
who, with her son, William Edwards, then young, accom- 
panied the mother to Hartford, Conn. Both Mr. and Mrs. 
Coles died in Hartford. In 1646, William's name appears as 
a landowner in Hartford. Mrs. Coles' death is recorded 
as on the 20th of February, 1670, and she left by will her 
house and land to William during his life, then to her grand- 
son Richard. William Edwards is named with William 
Tuttle and others as concerned in the East Haven settle- 
ment. About 1645, h^ married Agnes, widow of WiUiam 
Spencer, by whom he had one child, Richard. William 
died . 

2. Richard Edwards, born May, 1647; was a merchant in 
Hartford ; married (i) Ehzabeth Tuttle, daughter of William 
and Elizabeth Tuttle, of New^ Haven, November 19, 1667. 
They had seven children. Mrs. Edwards died, and Richard 
married (2), 1692, Mary Talcott, daughter of Hon. John Tal- 
cott, by whom he had six children. She died at Hartford, 
April 20, 1718. 

Dr. Franklyn Ellsworth Edwards wrote to the compiler of 
these notes, on the 22d of October, 1900: " I went to Hart- v^ 
ford, and found there the grave of Richard Edwards and \ 
Mary Talcott, his wife, and one son buried * on the dust of 
his mother.' The cemetery is re-graded and turfed, all the

tombstones restored and re-lettered, and a high iron fence 
incloses it — all the work of the Daughters of the Revolu- 
tion. His father, William, is probably buried in some other 
cemetery thereabout, but I had not time to look up his 
grave."

ber 6, 1765.

In a copy of a Manuscript Memorial of Richard Edwards, 
written by his son Timothy, I read : (The original of this 
was in the possession of the late Professor Park, and he 
read from it at the Edwards Meeting, at Stockbridge, 1870.) 
" He was of a noble stature, of a straight, well-formed body, 
and of a comely countenance. His smile had a pleasantcy 
beyond which I have seen in many, yea, in most others. He

was quick and nimble in his movements, even to old age; 
and was of a strong and healthy constitution. He had a 
strong, clear mind, and had a very good utterance. He had 
a quick fancy ; a pleasant, ready wit, with a very good judg- 
ment. He could argue in a matter and reason in a case very 
well. He was a man of considerable reading; both in Law, 
History, and Divinity ; was well furnished for society, and 
very pleasant in consultation." Timothy adds : " Thus it 
pleased the Most High to endow and adorn my dear departed 
Father with many virtues which rendered him very lovely 
and desirable in his life, and much lamented in his death." 
3. Timothy Edwards, b. May 14, 1669; fitted for college 
under Rev. Pelatiah Glover, minister of Springfield, Mass., 
and entered Harvard 1687; graduated July 4, 1691, receiving 
the degree of A.B. and A.M. on the same day — " an uncom- 
mon mark of respect." He was licensed to preach in 1694, 
and ordained as pastor of the new church at East Windsor, 
Conn., 1698; married Esther, second child of Rev. Solomon 
Stoddard, of Northampton, Mass., by whom he had eleven 
children — one son and ten daughters. Mr. Stoddard was 
the son of Anthony Stoddard, who came from England to 
Boston about 1639, and who married Mary, daughter of Hon. 
Emanuel Downing, of Salem, and Lucy, his wife. Solomon 
was born October 4, 1643; died February 11, 1729, aet. 86; 
graduated at Harvard, 1662; settled at Northampton, Mass., 
as minister, September 11, 1670; married Mrs. Esther 
Mather, nee Esther Warham, of Windsor, Conn., March 8, 
1670; she died February 10, 1736, aet. 93. The tradition is 
that black hair and black eyes came into the family through 
the Warhams. Timothy Edwards died January 27, 1758, in 
his eighty-ninth year, and the sixtieth of his ministry; Mrs. 
Edwards died January 19. 1770, in her ninety-ninth year. 
Mrs. Edwards is described as " tall, dignified and command- 
ing in appearance, afifable and gentle in her manner, and was 
regarded as surpassing her husband in native vigor of under- 
standing. Remarkable judgment and prudence, extensive 
information, thorough knowledge of the Scriptures and of 
theology, singular conscientiousness and piety, — these are 
virtues attributed to the mother vvhich reappear in her son

Jonathan. These also came as if by natural descent to a 
daughter of vSolomon Stoddard." 

Jonathan Edwards, in a letter, says : " My grandfather 
Stoddard was a very great man, of strong powers of mind, 
of great grace and great authority, of a masterly countenance, 
speech and behavior." 

In the spring of 1709, jMr. Edwards was appointed by the 
Colonial Legislature of Connecticut as the Chaplain of the 
troops of that State for the expedition against Canada. He 
left Windsor for New Haven in July, and reached Albany 
August 13th, with three companies under Colonel Livingston. 
The country was uncleared, and he camped two nights in the 
woods. On the 20th of August he left for Wood Creek. At 
Saratoga, in consequence of exposure, he was taken seriously 
ill; on the 14th of September, being unable to proceed, he 
was conveyed in a boat to Stillwater, and then carried back 
to East Windsor in a wagon, and on a bed. Mr. Edwards 
was unusually esteemed and beloved as an upright, pious, and 
exemplary man, and a faithful and very efficient minister of 
the gospel. His grandson, Rev. Sereno Dwight, says of him : 
" He was five feet ten inches high, of fair complexion, 
strong built frame, of polished manners, particularly attentive 
to dress and propriety of exterior; never appearing in public 
but in the full dress of a clergyman. On a visit to East 
Windsor, in the summer of 1823, I found a considerable 
number of persons advanced in years, who had been well 
acquainted with Mrs. Edwards, and two upwards of ninety, 
who had been pupils of her husband. Mr. Edwards was well 
acquainted with Hebrew Literature, and was regarded as a 
man of more than usual learning; but was particularly dis- 
tinguished for his accurate knowledge of the Greek and 
Roman classics. He annually prepared a number of youths 
for college, there being at that time no public schools or 
academies endowed for that purpose. One of my aged 
informants, w^ho pursued his preparatory studies under him, 
told me that, on his admission into college, when the officers 
learned with whom he had studied, they remarked to him 
that there was no need of examining Mr. Edwards' scholars. 
He was, for that period, remarkably liberal and enlightened

with regard to the education of his children, preparing not 
only his son, but each of his daughters, for college. On the 
Canada expedition, he writes in a letter, dated August 3d, 
171 1, that Jonathan and the girls may continue their study of 
Latin ; another letter, dated August 7th, that Jonathan may 
continue to recite his Latin to his eldest sister. When his 
daughters were of a proper age, he sent them to Boston to 
finish their education. He always preached extemporane- 
ously, and until he was upwards of the age of seventy, with- 
out noting down the heads of his discourses. His influence 
on his congregation was commanding; when he heard of 
any division among his people, he went immediately to see 
that the parties were reconciled, and when he heard of any 
improper conduct, his custom was to go immediately and 
reprove them. At the time of bis settlement at East Wind- 
sor, his father built for him a house on a farm of moderate 
extent, which he had bought. It was then considered a 
handsome residence." "I saw it," continues Dr. Dwight, "in 
1803 ; a substantial house of moderate dimensions ; had one 
chimney in the middle, and was entered, like all houses of 
that period, by stepping on the sill. In this house, Mr. and 
Mrs. Edwards lived and died, and here all their children were 
born. A step-stone that belongs to it is inserted in the 
foundation of the Theological Seminary at East Windsor." 
(See Appendix.) 

[The Rev. Charles A. Jaquith, of South Windsor, wrote me, 
November 29, 1902: "The First Congregational Church, of 
which I am pastor, had as its first pastor Timothy Edwards. 
It was here that Jonathan Edwards was born, about a mile 
north of our present church building, and where the cellar of 
the house can plainly be seen. This parish was set ofif from 
old Windsor as East Windsor, but later, the eastern and 
northern part of the town, east of the Connecticut River, was 
set off from this, but kept our name ; this parish becoming 
South Windsor. Our church building is the fourth in the 
history of the church." Mr. Jaquith suggested that as the 
second centennial of the birth of Jonathan Edwards, " whicli 
we hope to celebrate," would occur next year, an Edwards 
Memorial Window would seem appropriate. A number cf

the soul. At about the same time he wrote an elaborate

and instructive account of the habits of the field spider, 
based upon his own observation." (Allen's Life of Jonathan 
Edwards.) " He entered Yale College in 171 6, and received 
the degree of A.B., 1720, a little before he was seventeen 
years old. In his second year at college, he read Locke on 
the ' Human Understanding ' with great delight and profit, 
though he made good progress in all the arts and sciences, 
and had an uncommon taste for Natural Philosophy, which 
he cultivated to the end of his life ; yet Moral Philosophy and 
Divinity were his favorite studies. He hved at college two 
years after he took his degree, preparing for the work of 
the ministry. And being pitched upon and applied to by a 
number of ministers in New England, who were interested, 
to act in behalf of the English Presbyterians of New York, 
he complied with their request, and went to New York in 
August, 1722, and preached there to very good acceptance 
about eight months. He left them the next spring, and 
retired to his father's house, where he spent the summer in 
close study. In 1723, he received his degree of M.A. ; about 
which time he had invitations from several congregations to 
come among them ; but being chosen Tutor of Yale College, 
the next spring he retired thither, and remained about two 
years. While he was so engaged, he was applied to by the 
people of Northampton, with the invitation to come and 
settle there with his grandfather vStoddard, who, by reason 
of his great age, stood in need of assistance. He thereupon 
resigned his tutorship in September, 1726, and accepted the 
invitation, and was ordained colleague with Mr. Stoddard 
February 15, 1727. He remained in the work of the min- 
istry to that congregation until June 22, 1750, somewhat over 
twenty-three years." (Life of Mr. Edwards, Northampton, 
1764.) 

On the 28th day of July, 1727, he married Sarah, daughter 
of the Rev. James and Mary Hooker Pierpont, of New 
Haven, Conn., the bride being seventeen years of age. She 
is spoken of as possessing rare beauty both of form and fea- 
ture. She was descended from the Rev. Thomas Hooker, 
renowned as the father of the Connecticut churches. James

Pierpont was an eminent divine, connected with Yale College 
in various capacities, fovuider, trustee, and Professor of Moral 
Philosophy. His father, John Pie'rpont, came to Roxbury, 
Mass., from Holme-Pierpont, in the County of Nottingham, 
England, and was the youngest of three sons oi Sir John 
Pierpont. At about the time of his marriage, JNIr. Edwards 
is described thus : " He was tall, upwards of six feet in height, 
slender, and of great seriousness and gravity of manner. His 
face bespeaks a delicate and nervous organization. The life 
he had set for himself was that of a student who would not 
allow his time to be frittered away by useless employment. 
He visited the people only in cases of necessity. Thirteen 
hours of study daily is said to have been his rule. His 
manner in the pulpit is described as quiet exceedingly, with 
little or no gesture ; a voice not loud, but distinct and 
penetrating," 

" Mrs. Edwards proved to be a woman of strong char- 
acter, endowed with a natural religious enthusiasm, with a 
decidedly mystic bent to the piety that belonged to her from 
childhood. As her husband's reputation grew throughout 
the colony, her name became everywhere associated with his, 
but also as of a person to be known and revered on her 
own account. There was nothing morbid or sad about her 
religion. She made the home at Northampton a center of 
genial and attractive hospitahty. *A sweeter couple I have 
not seen,' said Whitefleld in his diary, after a visit of several 
days." (Allen.) 

Mr. Edwards was dismissed ignominiously by his congre- 
gation January 22, 1750. For the cause of this proceeding, 
reference is made to any Life of Mr. Edwards. " The Indian 
missions at Stockbridge being vacant, the Commissioners for 
Indian Affairs, at Boston, applied to Mr. Edwards. He was 
at the same time invited by the inhabitants of Stockbridge, 
and repairing to that place, he was introduced, and fixed as 
missionary to the Indians there by an ecclesiastical council 
called for that purpose, August 8, 1751." (Life, 1764.) 

" It was at Stockbridge that Mr. Edwards wrote the treatise 



Ancestors of Timothy and Rhoda Ogden Edwards. o 

on the Will, and that on Original Sin. On September 24, 
1757, his son-in-law, the Rev. Aaron Burr, President of the 
New Jersey College (now Princeton University), died, and 
at the next meeting of the Trustees, Mr. Edwards was chosen 
his successor, the news of which was quite unexpected to 
him. After much hesitation and correspondence with the 
Trustees, he accepted the position, and set off from Stock- 
bridge in January, 1758, leaving his family, not to be removed 
till spring. He had two daughters at Princeton, Mrs. Burr 
and Lucy, his eldest, unmarried. The smallpox was then in 
Princeton, and by the advice of the physicians, and with the 
consent of the Corporation, he was inoculated, February 13. 
He had it favorably, and it was thought all danger was over ; 
but a secondary fever set in, and it put an end to his life on 
March 22, 1758, in the fifty-fifth year of his age. A little 
before his death he called his daughter Lucy to him, and 
addressed her in a few words, which were immediately writ- 
ten down, and were as follows : * Dear Lucy, it seems to be 
the will of God that I must shortly leave you ; therefore, give 
my kindest love to my dear wife, and tell her that the uncom- 
mon union which has so long subsisted between us has been 
of such a nature as 1 trust is spiritual, and therefore will con- 
tinue forever ; and 1 hope she shall be supported under so 
great a trial, and submit cheerfully to the will of God. And 
as to my children, you are likewise to be left fatherless, which 
I hope will be an inducement to you all to seek a Father who 
will never fail you.' His last words were : * Trust in God, and 
ye need not fear.' He appeared to have the uninterrupted 
use of his reason. to the last, and died with as much calmness 
and composure as that with which one goes to sleep." (Life 
of Mr. Edwards, printed in Northampton, 1764.) 

His remains, as well as those of his wife, who died seven 
months later, while in Philadelphia, and those of his grand- 
son, Aaron Burr, rest in the cemetery at Princeton. 

On the 22d of June, 1900, just a hundred and fifty years 
after the dismissal of Mr. Edwards, a Memorial Bronze 
Tablet to him was unveiled in the First Church (his church)

of Edwards, life size or larger, represented as if preaching. 
On the panel beneath the figure is the inscription. 

In Memory of 

JONATHAN EDWARDS, 

Minister of Northampton 

from Feb. 15, 1727, to June 22, 1750. 

" The law of truth was in his mouth, and unrighteousness 
was not found in his Hfe. He walked with me in peace and 
uprightness, and did turn many away from iniquity. " — Mai.

The original portraits of President Edwards and his wife 
were, in 1870, in possession of the family of Jonathan Walter 
Edwards, Esq., of Hartford, Conn. " They were painted 
about the year 1740, ni Boston, at the request and expense, 
it is believed, of a Mr. Hogg, and were forwarded to him in 
Scotland. At the decease of Mr. Hogg they passed into the 
hands of his sister, who presented them to the Rev. John 
Erskine, of Edinburgh. After the American Revolution, 
Dr. Jonathan Edwards, the second son of the President, 
made application to Dr. Erskine to purchase the portraits, 
and the latter gentleman declined to sell them; but, on learn- 
ing that no other portraits of the President and his wife 
existed, he sent them to this country as a present to Dr. 
Edwards, and they have remained in my father's family 
since." (Remarks of Jonathan Edwards, of New Haven, at 
the Edwards Meeting, at Stockbridge, 1870.) 

TO THE PORTRAIT OF SARAH PIERPONT. 

O lustrous eyes, so dark and deep, 

Filled with a shimmering haze! 
O eyes that holy vigils keep! 
Tears into mine unbidden leap 

As I return your gaze. 
Why look on us with mild surprise. 
Ancestress of the beautiful eyes?

of spirits and vivacity, quick tempered, witty, and given to 
anecdote — fascinating to me as a child." 

2. Edward Edzvards, born at Stockbridge, Mass., January 
20, 1763; married Mary Ballard, of Hadley, Mass., daughter 
of Joshua and Ruth Ballard, September 4, 1783 ; she was born 
January 11, 1764, and died at Chenango, N. Y., February 12, 
1824. Mr. Edwards died at Albion, Mich., February 3, 1845, 
They had ten children. William Edwards' Memoirs says of 
Edward : " When I first engaged in business at Northampton, 
my brother Edward was in business, and doing well, at Stock- 
bridge. He was kind, and rendered me important aid. He 
removed to Broome County, N. Y., about the year 1800, and 
was engaged in making pine lumber on the Chenango and 
Susquehanna Rivers, and running it to Baltimore. He made 
it profitable for several successive years, and laid such induce- 
ments before me that I embarked largely with him in pur- 
chasing timber lands, building saw-mills, establishing a 
store," etc. 

Mrs. Frances Mather remembered her uncle Edward. He 
was very tall, six feet and three or four inches, straight, slen- 
der, and of an uncommon personal beauty. When his father 
was commissioner on the boundary line, as before mentioned, 
Edward, who was with him, was adopted by the Indians, and 
given an Indian name, which meant " the handsome man." 
He came to Bath, N. Y., and was interested in large tracts of 
land. He necessarily lived the life of a pioneer in that new 
country; was elected a member of the legislature, and was 
much respected. His descendants abound in middle New 
York and in Michigan. 

3. Jonathan Edzvards, born October 16, 1764; married his 
cousin Lucy, daughter of Jahleel Woodbridge, of Stockbridge, 
November 20, 1778. He died at Binghamton, N. Y., Sep- 
tember, 1832; she died at Youngstown, O., 1848. They had 
eleven children. 

Mrs. Mather remembered Jonathan well. She said he was 
remarkable for originality and wit. In his early life his father 
gave him a farm at Stockbridge. Some one who lived where 
Binghamton now is, offered to exchange land for the farm,

and Jonathan thus acquired a property in the heart of that 
town. There he Hved many years, daily calHng upon his 
sister, Mary Whiting. 

Mrs. Mather remembered their talks of early struggles, and 
of the life at Stockbridge. " He and my mother were mighty 
in prayer, and prayed for their children's children to the latest 
generation — not that they might be rich and prominent, but 
that they might love and honor God." He died and was 
buried at Binghamton. His descendants mostly live in West- 
ern Pennsylvania and in Northern Ohio." 

4. Richard Edwards, born March 5, 1766; married Alia 
Visa Griffin, of Abington, Conn. ; was a lawyer, and at first 
practiced in Albany, N. Y., then removed to Cooperstown, 
N. Y., where he died, in 1805. Mrs. Edwards died in Stock- 
bridge, 181 1. 

Mrs. Mather spoke of Richard as " a brilliant lawyer." 
Like the rest of the men of that family, he was tall and fine 
looking. 

5. Phcbe Edwards, born November 4, 1768; married (i) 
Rev. Asahel Hooker, June 11, 1792; he was graduated at 
Yale, 1789; died April 19, 1813. They had four children. 
She married (2) Samuel Farrer, of Andover, Mass., and died 
January 21, 1848. Mr. Farrer was born December 13, 1773; 
died — , . " Phebe Edwards, as a girl, was fond of read- 
ing, and the atm.osphere of her father's house was favorable 
to the cultivation of her taste. She married the Rev. Asahel 
Hooker, of Hartford. Pie was descended, m the fifth gen- 
eration, from the Rev. Thomas Hooker. Pie was settled at 
Goshen, Conn. ; was an excellent preacher, his aspect and 
manner winning, and his voice pleasant. There were, at an 
early day, in Connecticut, a few ministers who instructed 
young men in systematic theology, preparatory to their be- 
coming preachers. After the death of Mr. Backus, one of 
the most prominent of these preachers, the importance of 
establishing a theological school was urged, and Mr. Hooker 
was fixed on by his brethren as the proper man for the pur- 
pose. From 1803 to iSio, he conducted the school success- 
fully. In all, thirty-two youiig men were his pupils, and lived

in his house. Among these were Naah Porter, of Farming- 
ton; Heman Humphrey, Bennet Tyler, Abel McEwen, and 
Joshua Huntington, all men of eminence in their day. 

Mr, Hooker's health failed, and at his own request, he was 
dismissed from his pastoral charge, in 1810, and removed to 
Norwich, Conn., where he soon after died. 

In 1814, Mrs. Hooker married Samuel Farrer, Esquire, 
Treasurer of the Theological Seminary at Andover, Mass. 
This position was much adapted to her habit of thought and 
feeling. She soon began to take a deep interest in the Semi- 
nary, and everything that concerned it. Her influence as an 
exemplary Christian, full of benevolent sympathies, zealous 
for the cause of Christ, was felt by all those who came in con- 
tact with her. Her regard for ministers and their families, 
and her large hospitality, were salutary influences at Andover. 
She retained till the last her taste for reading, and an interest 
in everything that showed progress in society. She consid- 
ered all scientific improvements, all inventions, as tending to 
the advancement of the Redeemer's kingdom. The winter 
in which she died, at the age of seventy-nine, she read new 
books on astronomy ; and on one cold evening, when a gen- 
tleman of the neighborhood brought a telescope, and set it 
up near the house, she went out on the snow and looked at 
the rings of Saturn. She died, after a short illness, January 
22, 1848." (From notes by her daughter, Mrs. Cornelius.) 

6. IVUliam Edzvards, born at Northampton, Mass., Novem- 
ber II, 1770; married Rebecca Tappan, of Northampton, 
November 11, 1793; died at Brooklyn, N. Y., December 29, 
1851. She was born July 14, 1775; died at Brooklyn, March 
27, 1857. They had eleven children. 

William Edwards, in 1847, four years before his death, 
wrote his recollections, which were printed in 1898, as 
" Memoirs." From these the following notes are taken : In 
his fourteenth year, young Edwards went from Stockbridge 
to Elizabethtown, N. J., to learn the tanning trade from 
his uncle, Oliver Spencer, and began an apprenticeship, but 
before the end of the year returned to Stockbridge on account 
of his health, and remained there until 1787. While at home

the Shays insurrection broke out, and he enUsted in a Berk- 
shire regiment. (For his interesting account of this war, and 
his experiences connected with it, see the Memoirs.) He re- 
turned to EHzabethtown and resumed his duties. He joined 
a Grenadier Mihtia Company, and was the fourth of the com- 
pany in stature, measuring six feet three and a half inches. 
When General Washington, in 1789, came to New York to 
be inducted into the office of President, he passed through 
Elizabethtown, and while at breakfast there, at the house of 
Samuel Smith, William was one of a guard composed of the 
six tallest men of his company, placed at the house. The 
soldiers escorted the General to Elizabethtown Point, and 
were reviewed by him before he embarked in the barge for 
New York. This experience, William, in his old age, spoke 
of as the proudest of his Hfe. In 1789, he went to East Had- 
dam. Conn., to perfect himself in his trade, and then, by the 
advice of his father, settled in Northampton, before he was 
twenty years of age. Aided by friends, he built a tannery, 
introducing changes and improvements that he had thought 
out during his apprenticeship. In 1799, the tannery was de- 
stroyed by fire. Again his friends stood by him, and he was 
enabled to put up a much larger building, and to introduce 
further improvements. During these years at Northampton, 
he revolutionized the tanning trade. The bark mill, the heat- 
ers for boiling the ground bark, the hide mill, and the roll- 
ing machine, were but part of his patented contrivances. In 
1838, the Honorable Gideon Lee, of New York, in an address 
before the Electic Fraternity, after enumerating the im- 
provements that had taken place in tanning during the last 
thirty years — in the construction of tanneries and in labor- 
saving machinery — said : " The invention and application of 
these important im.provements originated chiefly with Colonel 
William Edwards. I am not extravagant in rating the ben- 
efits of his improvements at millions. They have spread, and 
have been adopted in some sort or measure in all the States 
where leather is manufactured." 

In 1795, William married Rebecca Tappan, daughter of 
Benjamin and Sarah Holmes Tappan, of Northampton, and 



Descendants of Timothy and Rhoda Ogden Edwards: 27 

sister of the well known brothers, Benjamin, later United 
States Senator from Ohio, John, Charles, Arthur, and Lewis 
Tappan. On her mother's side, Rebecca was descended from 
Mary Franklin, sister to Benjamin Franklin. During the 
year 1800, when war with France was threatened, troops were 
raised in Massachusetts, and a company of sixty men was 
organized in Northampton. Of this, William Edwards was 
chosen Captain. When their three months' term expired 
"we were cordially received into the regular militia of the 
State, where I v/as raised, first to the rank of Major, subse- 
quently to that of Colonel. In 1813, when Boston was threat- 
ened by the British, I commanded a regiment of artillery, 
consisting of four companies. Eleven companies were or- 
dered to rendezvous at Boston, and the Governor and Coun- 
cil called me to the command of this body of troops. I was 
two months in the service." 

Mr. Edwards represented Northampton at the General 
Court repeatedly. He was a Federalist, and his son, WilHam 
W. Edwards, says of him (Memoirs) : " No man exercised 
more political influence in his town and State than he did in 
the early years of this century. He was entrusted with 
various offices in Northampton, was on the Board of Select- 
men, and was identified with every measure for improvement 
in the town." 

In the time of contraction succeeding the war, the corpo- 
rate company which had been organized by Mr. Edwards and 
friends failed. Aided by New York friends who were in the 
leather business, he began anew in the wilderness, 1817, in 
the town of Hunter, Greene County, N. Y., and erected what 
was for years the largest tannery in the United States. In 
1830, this was burned to the ground, but was rebuilt the same 
year by the assistance of three of Mr. Edwards' sons. He 
retired from business in 1834. The last years of his life were 
passed in Brooklyn, at the home of his son Richard and 
daughter Elizabeth, and he died there in the eighty-second 
year of his age. IMrs. Edwards survived him a few years. 
The remains of the two lie in Greenwood Cemeterv.

8. Timothy Edwards, born July 12, 1774; he followed the 
sea, and was for some years master of a ship between Charles- 
ton and Savannah, and Liverpool; married Sarah Haigh, of 
Huddersfield, England, 1820, and soon after retired from his 
profession. He settled at first at Augusta, Ga., as a cotton 
broker; in 1829, removed to Lexington, Greene County, 
N. Y., and engaged in tanning. About 1835, he went to 
Jersey City, N. ]., and resided there with his children until 

his death in . For some years he was a Justice of the 

Peace in Jersey City. Mrs. Edwards died in Northampton, 
Mass., about 1840. They had five children. 

The compiler of this record well remembers his great-uncle, 
Timothy Edwards, both at Lexington and Jersey City. He 
was six feet three inches in height, slender and straight ; of 
dark complexion, long and straight black hair, and piercing 
black eyes ; aquiline nose ; a very fine-looking man, and con- 
spicuous in any assemblage. He delighted to talk of his 
sailor life ; was at St. Petersburg when Napoleon was at Mos- 
cow, 1813; had traded at Archangel, and derided the story of 
the maelstrom ofi the coast of Norway, which, in those days, 
cut a figure in school geographies.

" Madam Dwight was a wonder and a joy to all who knew 
her, for intellectual power and brightness, to the end <3f her 
very long life, and was held in veneration by the admiring 
people of Northampton, and by a multitude without that 
historic town." (Dv/ight Genealogy.)

hamton, N. Y., January 11, 1849. She died January 21, 1873. 
They had eight children. 

" Full of life and gaiety in her childhood, Mary Edwards 
could dance with the merriest, turn the house upside down 
with the girls, run away with the hearts of the young men, 
and match her cousm, Aaron Burr, in fun and wit. She was 
a great favorite of her father, who once introduced her to 
some of his Scotch friends as, more than any member of the 
family, the image of her grandfather. At the age of twenty- 
two she removed with her husband, a young Berkshire law- 
yer, to Chenango Point, at the junction of the Chenango and 
Susquehanna Rivers, now Binghamton. There were then 
only two or three houses in the place, and the county was 
almost a wilderness. She was one of the few original mem- 
bers of the church which, some time after her arrival, was 
organized. Mr. Whiting was the leading lawyer, and his 
house, in the absence of hotels, was the resort of the lawyers 
and judges during the sessions of the courts. Mr. Whiting 
had a genuine love of nature and of books, and he cultivated 
in his children tastes for both. Mrs. Whiting was the chief 
educator of her daughters, and impressed upon them, in an 
unusual degree, her own mental, moral, and religious char- 
acter. Her religion was at once a controlling principle and 
a ruling passion, her daily business and her constant delight. 
She was interested, to the end of her life, in passing events, 
in the business and pleasures of her children and grandchil- 
dren, in the growth of the town, and the welfare of the nation. 
Her mind was as clear at fourscore and ten as it was in the 
prime of life. She died at the age of ninety-two, the last of 
the children of Timothy and Rhoda Ogden Edwards. The 
whole city of Binghamton was moved by her death. All 
classes, all ages, all denominations, all nationalities, crowded 
to her funeral."

Note — In the foregoing pages the name Pierpont is so spelled, 
nowhere being transformed into Pierrepont, a different name altogether. 
In the General Catalogue of Yale College, James Pierpont is listed as 
a Fellow from October 16, 1701. In a Latin text-book that was in the 
possession of the late Rev. John Edwards, of San Jose, Cal., the name 
"John Pierpont" is written by his own hand on the title page, and on 
the back is written " Mary Pierpont's Book, 1728." In the General Cat- 
alogue of the College of New Jersey, under the year 1768, stands the 
name of "Pierpont" Edwards, which shows how the youngest son of 
Jonathan Edwards spelled his name. Nevertheless that name of late 
years is constantly misspelled Pierrepont, when Pierpont Edwards is 
spoken of.

[From Scribiicr's Magazine for April, 1903.] 

TEN CO-EDUCATED GIRLS TWO HUNDRED 

YEARS AGO. 

By Mrs. H. M. Plunkett, of Pittsfield, Mass. 

On November 6, 1694, Rev. Timothy Edwards, who had 
been chosen to become the pastor of a newly formed church 
in East Windsor, Conn. — sometimes known as Windsor 
Farms — was married in Northampton, Mass., to Miss Esther 
Stoddard, daughter of the minister of that town. There is 
no record of how the lady looked, nor of what she wore on 
the occasion, the chronicles of that time only noting the fact 
that Miss Stoddard had enjoyed superior advantages for edu- 
cation, having been sent to Boston for that purpose. The 
husband was 24, the bride 22. All New England looked to 
Harvard College, at that time, to stamp the hall-mark on abil- 
ity, and no doubt Miss Esther was duly proud of the fact that 
the man of her choice had been endowed with the degree of 
Bachelor of Arts in the morning, and that of Master of Arts 
in the afternoon of the same day, an unprecedented act on 
the part of the college, a tribute to the unsurpassed scholar- 
ship of Mr. Edwards — a scholarship that we shall see was 
always kept bright, and never allowed to lapse into desuetude, 
during a long life. The wedding journey of the couple, in- 
cluding some family visits, lasted eight days, when they 
arrived in the town where he was to be pastor for sixty-three 
years, and where she was to live a beautiful and influential 
life as his helper, and where, even after her husband's death, 
it is recorded that she was beloved for her Christian helpful- 
ness in doing all that she could to increase the influence of 
his successor. Very few parishes could, in that primitive 

(139)

time, pay a salary adequate to support a minister, without 
some extraneous assistance — this assistance often taking the 
form of a farm. In Mr. Edwards's case, his father, who was a 
successful merchant of Hartford, made him the free gift of 
a farm and build him a house on it, but as this was not yet 
completed, the newly married pair occupied at first temporary 
quarters otherwhere. At length it was done, and it was an 
uncommonly fine and really "advanced" house, for the period. 
It stood with its long front to the street, the bare architec- 
tural blankness of this front being broken at the center by a 
projection which formed a porch about the front door on the 
first story, and in the second, made a room of closet-like pro- 
portions, but called the "study" — within the walls of which 
were produced for sixty-three years the sermons that formed 
the chief intellectual pabulum of that people, outside the Bible. 
Few and small were the windows, made of tiny diamond 
panes set in lead, eloquent of the costliness of glass. Our 
ancestors held the theory that an air-space under a house 
made it cold, so this house had no visible underpinning, but 
seemed planted in the soil. The second story projected 
beyond the first — tradition has it, so as to be able to shoot 
Indian marauders, of which, in this vicinity, there were too 
many for the comfort of the intruding pale faces. The roof 
was steep — made of "nved" shingles, which were never 
changed, and still serviceable Ti8 years afterward, when the 
house was taken down. The stepping stone was utilized 
again by the man who built upon its site, but in 1834 it was 
bought from him, and made the corner-stone of the Theologi- 
cal Institute of Connecticut. The house had some very 
superior woodwork on the inside, one feature of which was a 
bench, running round three sides of one of the rooms, and 
which has an important relation to our theme. As New Eng- 
land parishes were rated, at that time, this of East Windsor 
iwas esteemed one of the best. Nearly every parishioner was 
a farmer ; even the owner of the only gristmill and the store- 
keeper had their farms. An account-book belonging to a 
deacon, andRev. Mr. Edwards's "rate-book" (really the parish 
record) are still extant, and as the latter gentleman had a

habit of making quaint and piquant memoranda in connection 
[with some of the items of cash or produce paid to him, they 
throw a flood of hght on the manners, customs, and ideas of 
the time. Payments were faithfuhy, but not ahvays promptly, 
made, and the minister found it impossible to live on his 
salary without adding the labor of a tutor; hence he always 
had young men fatting for college in his family, and his rate- 
book shows that young men who could not spare time in the 
day, came to him in the evening to be instructed in penman- 
ship. 

The meeting-house was not completed till three years 
after Mr. Edwards's marriage — the congregation meanwhile 
assembling in a barn — and although he exercised every func- 
tion of the Congregational priesthood, he was not formally 
ordained until the two ceremonies of dedicating the church 
and the complete induction of the pastor, called ordina- 
tion, could be combined in one joyful occasion. It occurred 
in 1698. Previous to this his house had been completed, 
and two of the young women, whose completed circle is ten, 
had appeared on this earthly scene. This double ceremonial 
was the happy goal toward v/hich both pastor and people had 
been looking for many years, and, accustomed as we are to 
think of those early Puritans as leading austere and joyless 
lives, it is a surprise to learn that the religious ceremonies 
were followed by an Ordination Ball in the minister's house — 
one of the invitations in the young pastor's handwriting, bear- 
ing his autograph, being still in existence. A careful list of 
"provisions laide in at the house of Mr. Edwards for his 
ordination," is still extant in the account-book of his accurate 
deacon. Of actual viands sent, there were eighty-eight pounds 
of "beefe," fourteen of mutton, eighteen of veal ; souger, ten 
pounds ; wheat, meal, cheese, butter, eggs, salt, pepper, sidar, 
rum, malt, hops, wine, and money distinctly called "wine- 
money," and also spice-money, while many gave actual cash. 
We feel justified in believing that "everybody who was any- 
body" was invited to partake of this generous feast, and we 
are certain that that parish had at least one "jolly good time" 
in its life. 



142 Genealogy of the Edwards Family. 

Mrs. Edwards had a high ideal of the loftiness of the 
pastor's vocation, and, that her hurband might be free to ful- 
fill its duties, took upon herself the burden of their temporali- 
ties — so that her gifted and honored spouse could educate his 
young men, and care for the souls of his parishioners, unham- 
pered by petty cares. When there was a cjuestion of how 
many and what hides the tanner ought to return to him, he 
says, "My wife knows"; and other references to her show 
that she "looked to the ways of her household," notwith- 
standing the superior Boston education she had received. Of 
her eleven children the fifth was a son — ^Jonathan ; the rest 
were daughters, the youngest born when the oldest was 22. It 
was a busy and no doubt a lively household, and it is pleasant 
to read that "From the house the land sloped toward the east 
to a brook that flowed at the foot of a steeper hill, which 
was tlien crowned with a beautiful forest of primeval trees. 
. . . To this spot Mr. Edwards was accustomed to go for 
seclusion, and there his son Jonathan built the booth wherein 
he held soul-inspiring converse with God." We can imagine 
him escaping in desperation from such a girls'-nest as the 
house must have been to this precursor of the modern "den." 

As the minds of the ten daughters began to unfold, and as 
there were no schools to send them to, the father undertook 
to train them himself. He did not stop to inquire whether 
co-educating his girls right along with the fitting-for-college 
students would lead to atrophy of the muscles, or of the afifec- 
tions, but just did it. He had a school, with a high standard, 
beneath his own roof Harvard and Yale Colleges accepted 
"Mr. Edwards's students" without examination ; and that he 
held his girls to the same standard is proved by the fact that 
when called away from home, as he often was in his capacity 
of emJnent divine, he left the instruction in Latin and Greek 
to his daughters, and particularly directs that they shall not 
fail to hear the recitations of the young men, in the letters 
that he sends back. In his account-book he records every 
day's instruction to these young men, which was paid for at 
the rate of three shillings a week, and makes note of the time 
given to them by his daughters, for we may be sure that the 



Appendix. 143 

money value of these services by the co-educated ten was 
not ignored by them. Among the credits in his account- 
book is a raem.orandum of a shilHng paid by one North to my 
daughter -Mary for covering a fan, and there are other sim- 
ilar entries. That a knowledge of Latin and Greek had not 
eradicated the fondness for distinctively feminine work is 
shown by the fact that specimens of Miss Mary's embroidery 
— a scarf, an apron, and a pair of slippers — now owned by the 
Connecticut Historical Society, can to-day be seen in the 
Hartford Athenaeum. 

An effort has been made to discover the specific effect of 
the education above described, or the subsequent character, 
conduct, and lives of the women whose scholarly father had 
boldly reared his daughters in scholarly ways. He knew the 
advantage of travel and contact with other circles than one's 
own, and one after another they were sent to Boston for 
some of the superior advantages afforded by that city. As 
Mr. Edwards had come to be a very influential man in all re- 
ligious matters — in fact was the man to whom other parishes 
looked for counsel when in difficulties (which was not sel- 
dom) — his house was much frequented by ministers, old and 
young; and not a few were attracted thither by the charms 
of this galaxy of ''Edwards's girls," seven of w'hom married. 
Two died — one at 19 and one at 21. Of the seven who mar- 
ried, five lived to ages ranging from 60 to 91, the one whose 
life was shortest living to 60 ; so we must infer that the 
superior education did not tend to shortness of life ; but 
we look again, a.nd note that none of them married younger 
than 24, and on studying the reason of this, we find that some 
of them had "long engagements," the fashion then being for a 
man to build a house before he literally brought a bride 
"home"; and of the three who married ministers, two had to 
iwait till their lovers had been "called'' by some parish, and 
proved worthy of that "settlement for life" that was then the 
fashion m ecclesiastical circles. 

The one daughter — Mary — who remained single was the 
support and helper of her father, living to the age of 74, and 
outliving her sire by five years. Her epitaph reads thus :

Genius, Knowledge, Prudence, 

Joyn'd with Social Words, 

By Grace refined, Adorned her life. 

Deserved a name 
Which few of either sex can claim. 

These girls showed uncommonly good judgment in the 
selection of husbands, for we find them united to men of 
character and high moral worth, who filled influential posi- 
tions in their respective towns, even when not ministers, and 
at that time the minister was the dominant figure in every 
community. Mr. Edwards's oldest granddaughter — Elizabeth 
Huntington — was married to Abraham Davenport, of Stam- 
ford, of whom we find the following in the pages of Dr. 
Dwight : "The 19th of May, 1780, was a remarkably dark 
day. Candles were lighted in many houses ; the birds were 
silent and disappeared, and the fowls retired to roost. The 
Legislature of Connecticut was then in session at Hartford. 
A very general opinion prevailed that the Day of Judgment 
was at hand. The House of Representatives, being unable to 
transact their business, adjourned. A proposal to adjourn 
the Council, also, was under consideration, when the opinion 
of Colonel Davenport was asked; he answered: 'I am against 
an adjournment. The Da)' of Judgment is either approaching 
or it is not. If it is not, there is no cause for an adjourn- 
ment ; if it is, I choose to be found doing my duty. I wish, 
therefore, that candles may be brought.* " 

Of all this group of daughters w'ho are said to have 
grown up "to fill positions of eminence and usefulness," but 
one has left any personal memorial. This gives us a true pic- 
ture of her mind and heart, for at that day it was a common 
practice to record and communicate spiritual impressions, 
and states \v\\h. a frankness which our more reticent time finds 
it difificult to understai\d. 

This mem.orial consists of a diary, in her own handwrit- 
ing, on small bits of paper clipped from the tops and bottoms 
of letters, sometimes on the back of an entire letter — for 
paper wai a scarce and precious commodity — running 
through nearly fifty years. The whole is wrapped in a large 
sheet of actual animal parchment, folded carefully, and 



Appendix. 145 

indorsed in her own hand, "Esther Edwards's Diary." There 
is a tradition that, previous to 1723, when she was 25, she had 
passed through a season of deep spiritual darkness and doubt, 
but that upon taking a journey to Boston, she immediately 
passed into a peaceful and happy state. Some would argue 
that her trouble was a physical one that "a. change of scene" 
would set right, and, some would say, possibly a Boston 
preacher had the happiness to present the old truth at a fresh 
angle. On February 20, 1823, she says : "I am much indis- 
posed in body, and in a very dead frame of mind. Will the 
second Adam become a quickening spirit to my dead soul? I 
experienced something I want words to express. It was 
superior to what I have found these many years, and hope it 
was that peace of God that passeth understanding." 

"February 23d. — I have this morning been refreshed with 
divine consolations." Somebody has wittily said that the con- 
sciousness of being well dressed has a more sustaining power 
than religion itself for a woman ; and the next entry shows 
a genuine human touch that makes us love her. 

"March 7th. — 1 was this day, upon my looking more 
comely than ordinary, stirred up in thankfulness to God, 
whom I saw to be the Fountain of all Perfection, and that I 
might of His fullness receive every good thing. He appeared 
to me a God able and ready to help me." 

There is much of introspection and a minute record of the 
states of religious feeling experienced at different times. 

The second daughter had been betrothed and married in 
1724. One of the invitations to her wedding is still extant, 
and runs : 

"Sr. This comes from myself and wife as an Invitation to 
y'self and Sister, to my Daughter Betty's Wedding, ye day 
intended for which is the next Tuesday. I therefore do 
hereby request you both to be at my house on that occasion 
that day, at about three of the Clock in the afternoon, 
■whereby you will oblige 

"Sr yrs to serve you 

"TiMO : Edwards."

Whether this precedence over Miss Esther had anything 
to do with some of her "low," "dull," and "dead" frames of 
mind is not known, but previous to 1726 there appear frequent 
allusions to a person who is not indicated even by initials, but 
certain cabalistic marks are made to do duty for the name of 
one who had evidently taken the first place in Miss Esther's 
heart. Every entry contains a petition for the cabaHstic gentle- 
man. A clergym.an in those times looked for a parish before 
he allowed himself to think of marrying; and how long before 
the present date Rev. Samuel Hopkins had been engaged to 
her we do not know, but on October 2, 1726, we find this 
entry: "I was inlarged in my thanksgivings because God had 
wrought the affair of my settling in the world to such a 
pass as it is. Also encouraged thereby to trust in Him 
still, yt He would appear and do great things, even as my 

case should require, in particular in respect to " (here the 

cabalistic mark). She occasionally chides herself for discon- 
tent, or pride, but the leading object in all is the cabalistic 

unknown, . She says: "My eyes were to God all day 

long for ," and even in reading a treatise on the eter- 
nity of God she was pleased to discover "my happiness 

in ." In June of 1727 she was united in marriage to 

Mr. Hopkins, who had been settled as the pastor of West 
Springfield, Mass. She now records in her diary, especially 
on a communion Sabbath, that she "was inlarged in my peti- 
tions for my dear spouse that he may have all spiritual bless- 
ings, and all those ministerial accomplishments that may ren- 
der him a man of God, thoroughly furnished." She passes 
forward in life through the experience of motherhood, and, 
as we should expect, is very earnest in prayers for the con- 
version of her children. In 1729 she was much reduced by 
fever and ague, and was advised to take a journey to New 
Haven. She started when so weak that she could hardly 
mount her horse, and reached Waterbury, where her hus- 
band's relatives lived, so exhausted that she stayed there 
two weeks, and, no sooner had she reached New Haven 
than she was n^et by a messenger bearing the news of the 
death of her daughter Esther. The entries in the journal 



Appendix. 147 

show the tender mother, as well as the truly resigned Chris- 
tian, and all along are notes of her earnest, anxious prayers 
for her sisrers and children and husband. 

In 1 741 there occurred a great religious movement, known 
as the Great Awakening, which had spread from Northamp- 
ton, where it began under the preaching of her brother 
Tonatlian. Whitefield's preaching had been instrumental in 
a great religious quickening, and had inaugurated a new 
style of preaching. Barber — the historian of Connecticut — 
says : "The religious people were divided into the 'New 
Lights' and 'Old Lights.' The former were active and zeal- 
ous in the discharge of everything which they conceived to 
be their religious duty, and were in favor of Mr. Whitcfield 
and others itiuv^rating through the country, stirring up the 
people to reform," etc. Whereupon the Grand Council at 
Guilford said : "That for a minister to enter into another 
man's parish, and preach, or administer the seals of the cov- 
enant, without the consent of or in opposition to the settled 
minister, is disorderly." Most of the council were "Old 
Lights," and expelled the "enthusiasts" — as they called them. 
Rev. Eleazar Wheelock — afterward President of Dartmouth 
College — when it was established to educate Indians for mis- 
sionaries among their ovv'n people — and Jonathan Edwards 
were among the "New Lights" who approved of and took 
part in evangelistic services, supplementary to the regular 
services in many churches. "Dead" was the word applied 
to many churches that had fallen into routine. It is easily 
supposable that the irruption of an evangelistic "son of thun- 
der" is not at all times the most welcome sort of a visit to a 
peaceful, steady-going pastor. Airs. Hopkins records, on 
March 15, 1742, that she "has heard of Mr. Wheelock's 
arrival in Lonemeadow," and the next dav savs she has 
"heard of some going round to get subscriptions for preach- 
ing in this place," and the next day says, "J^hn Ely came 
to talk to Mr. H. about Mr. Wheelock's preaching among 
us ; apprehends great danger to this people and much detri- 
ment to the interests of religion." One can not repress a 
smile at the thouglit of that affectionate sister's requests at

this time being chiefly for her distinguished brother Jonathan 
— "that it would please God to enlighten him, and show him 
the way of truth, and that if he had embraced any error, that 
he might be recovered." On August 3, 1743, she says: 
"What is the matter? I was last night in company with one 
of the 'New Lights.' I could hardly bear the room." On 
March 12, 1744, she writes: "Some things occurred this 
morning which made it appear very doubtful whether my 
dear brother would ever come off of some principles which 
appeared to me were detrimental to religion." 

Mrs. Hopkins survived eleven years after the death of 
the husband, who had remained the pastor of his first and 
only parish for thirty-six years. The record on her tombstone 
is : "Mrs. Esther Hopkins, Relict of ye late Revd. Mr. Sam'll 
Hopkins (in whom a superior understanding, uncommon 
Improvements in Knowledge, Exemplary Piety, and exalted 
Virtue combined to form a distinguished female character), 
deceased June 7, 1766, in ye 72d year of her age." The whole 
is surmounted by a cherubic face, surrounded by stars — 
indicative of a beatified spirit. 

Mrs. Plunkett is a descendant of Esther Edwards Hopkins.
