"And my God put into mine heart to gather 
together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, 
that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I 
found a register of the genealogy of them which 
came up at the first, and found written therein, 

"These are the children of the Province." 

— Nehemiah VII, 5. 



'preface to volume il 



THERE are characteristic epochs in the social life of 
a people, which, though usually unnoticed by the 
historian, yet mark different phases in the devel- 
opment of the nation. Perhaps it is that the various 
changes in national evolution bring with them the forces 
which determine, not only the material environment of 
poverty or wealth, but also the very lines along which 
are exerted the activities of the mind. What once was 
considered unworthy or useless, may now be wseen to be 
both valuable and worth one's while. 

In the earlj^ life of a nation, the people are over- 
occupied in those things that minister directly to their 
immediate wants; while as national organization ad- 
vances, there comes both the means to acquire, and the 
leisure to enjoy the luxuries of life. The hardships 
met and overcome in the early days develop heroes, 
great men and women, whose children we are ; and it 
is with legitimate pride that we trace back our descent 
to some who were " giants in those days," if not in 
public life, yet in the greatness of their moral excellence. 
No higher nobility, and no more royal ancestry, can 
ever be found than that wherein it can be said of each 
generation's head, " He was a good man.'' 

And so it is, that as the years go by, and generation 
succeeds generation in an ever-increasing enjoyment of 
life, there grows out of the desire to know whence we 
are, an eager study of Genealogy. 

The present volume is the result of no little effort 
through many years, to place in permanent form the 
records of the immediate line of the family of the Com- 
piler, together with what he has collected concerning 



VI 

other American branches of the same family name. 
And it seems fitting here to tell the story of the origin 
and growth of this history of the Jennings family in 
America. 

In the early part of this century, great interest was 
awakened among those of the Jennings name, by reason 
of the report that the heir to the vast estates ot William 
Jennens of Acton, England, was to be found in some 
Jennings family in America. Not to discuss the merits 
of the case, it will be sufficient to say that no little en- 
thusiasm was aroused, conventions held, and a system- 
atic eflfort made to arrive at a correct lineage for every 
one of the name who joined in the work. Among those 
who took some part in this effort, were the immediate 
ancestors of the Compiler, to whose possession finally 
came a number of records and papers, and these became 
the basis of the work carried on through a score of 
years, and resulting in the book now issued. An ex- 
tensive correspondence was began with every Jennings 
whose name could be learned, and through these, other 
branches of the family were discovered until this cor- 
respondence spread throughout America, and even 
England. Through the kindness of each correspondent, 
(which is hereby acknowledged), original records were 
supplied, or those in hand verified, until the Compiler 
is warranted in saying that wherever positive facts are 
stated, that they may be relied on as correct. Every 
effort has been made to arrive at the truth, and nothing 
is conjecture except where given as such. 

Among the materials received, there is found such 
a wealth of facts concerning collateral and related fam- 
ilies, that it has been deemed necessary to add certain 
appendices. 

It is also the purpose of the Compiler to issue a 
volume of the Jennings family in England, with chap- 
ters on " The Origin of the Name," " Armorial Eviden- 
ces," " Early History of the Family," " Individuals of 
Note," " William Jennens of Acton — the Intestate — his 
estate, attempts to secure it," etc., etc , thus giving 
completeness as near as may be to the work undertaken. 



VII 

Also a book of plates, or genealogical charts will form 
a third volume in the series. 

Hoping that my earnest labor has resulted in a 
contribution of value, not only to the family, but to 
students of family history in general, and with grateful 
thanks to all who have in any way contributed to the 
accomplishment of my purpose, this volume is now 
sent forth. I remain, sincerely, 

W. H. Jennings. 

Columbus, Ohio, December 9, 1899. 




CONTENTS. 



The name of Jeuuings is found in the early Annals of our 
country, being mentioned in the records of many of the New 
England colonies. 

However, in no instance have we been able to determine 
positively the time or place of their landing or their relationship 
to any of the known English families of the name. Many of them 
may have been closely related to each other, but owing to the 
"tendency of the times," they separated and scattered over a 
large territory, each seeking to carve for himself a new home out 
of the wilderness, and were thus lost to each other. 

In this book we have taken the name of the " Stock Father," 
as the designation of his line throughout the work. 

In the Appendices several allied families are traced. The 
numbers are continuous.

CHAPTER I.

THE •EAST JERSEY" JENNINGS'S. 

With our first knowledge of that branch of the 
Jennings family to which this name has been given we 
have the tradition, that it consisted of seven brothers, 
namely : 

1. JOSEPH. 

2. ZEBULON. 

3. JACOB. 

4. BENJAMIN. 

5. JONATHAN. 

6. JOHN. 

7. DAVID. 

Their immediate ancestry we cannot ascertain ; and 
even their place of birth is unknown. From a descend- 
ant of Jacob (3) we have learned of a tradition in his 
family to the efi'ect that in consequence of a ship wreck 
the landing of this family was not made a matter of 
record ; and the following letter would seem to confirm 

this tradition : 

Winchester, Oct. 10, 1848. 
To Mr. David L. Jennings, 

St. Clairsville, Belmont Co., Ohio. 

Dear Sir — Yours of a previous date to hand and the contents 
noted. In reply I will say that I wrote to Lycurgus after my 
return from the east, stating to him the points by me made in 
regard to our England matter. But for fear the letter did not 
reach him, I will, though in haste, note some of them to you, 
which you will please show to him and Mr, Alexander. 

1st. I found on my last tour the wills of my Grand and Great 
Grandfathers, and also your Great Grandfather, together with 
about ten or twelve more, made by other persons bearing the 
name of Jennings, on record, most of them at Perth Amboy, N. J. 



\ 



\ 



I THE SEVEN BROTHERS 

These records would, carry us back to the satisfaction of any 
court. To that period there is no record in any of the offices in 
New York that will render us any assistance. I found a very old 
man ( Wm. Jennings) living at Elizabethtown, N. J. He told me 
that his Grandfather came from England, but he did not recollect 
his name, but said that your Great Grandfather, Jacob, and my 
Great Grandfather, Zebulon, were related to him ; that his ances- 
tor came over on board the " Old Calledonia," which landed at 
Perth Amboy, and that the vessel went to wreck. Then I went 
back to N. Y. Citj'^, but found no entry made there of her landing. 
I then went to Perth Amboy and found there yet remaining the 
wreck of the " Old Calledonia." 

She landed there about the year 1685 loaded with emigrants 
from Old England. But there were only twelve names of the 
emigrants recorded there ; they were proprietors to whom large 
grants of land were made in East Jersey. 

I went to New England, viz: Connecticut, to see the agents 
who have been to Old England. They have traced out all the 
branches of their family and found that they run quite too far 
back to be the heirs 

It has cost them about $1,000 and they have about given it up. 
They are satisfied that we do not belong to their line and they 
say that if our ancestors came over as late as 1685 or 1690, they 
have but little doubt that we are heirs to the estate, and they say 
they think we can succeed in tracing to our landing in this 
country. They say the points made by my research are highly 
important and encourage me to go on in the matter. There are 
ten years yet in which we can make further research. 

But I fear the want of records in this country back of the 
Revolution, and the mutilated records in England, will prevent 
our success. I have a copy of the plot of the Jennings family in 
England which shows that William Jennings died intestate in 
1798, a bachelor — that the estate left by him will now amount to 
from thirty to fifty millions of dollars — that there were six 
brothers to his father; two of them, *Henry and tWilliam probably 
came to this country, as there is no trace of them there. There is 
no doubt that the leaves in their record were cut out on purpose to 
prevent our tracing to the estate. I have spent all the money 
raised for me in making search, etc. 

There are two families, one in Virginia and one in Massachu- 
setts, now tracing their families. How they may succeed I shall 
be informed in due time and then it will be time for me to move 

^g^^'^- Yours truly, 

iD. D. FORDYCE. 



* The Isaac Jennings heirs claim through Henry, 
t The Jennings of Amelia County, Va., claim through William. 

% Mr. Fordyce, as his letter indicates, was engaged in tracing ancestry and working 
out the heirship to the great Jennings estate.

OF EAST NEW JERSEY. 3 

> We also copy the following letter which shows still 

further the interest laken fifty years ago in tracing the 

ancestry : 

SouTHPORT, Fairfield Co., Conn., May 22, 1848, 
To Mr. Lycurgus Jennings, 

St. Clairsville, Belmont Co., Ohio. 

Dear Sir — Yours finds me at my examination of Jennings' 
records. I have therefore turned to your branch of the family and 
find your Grandfather and Great Grandfather were both Jacob, 
the former born 1744, the latter 1711. I have this record of your 
father's brothers, to-wit : Samuel K., Ebenezer, Jonathan, and 
your father David. If there are any more, or any sisterjj, please 
give .them to me, as well as your brothers and sisters. 

I have spent much time in this investigation, particularly of 
our branch of the family, having very full records of all the 
branches back to Joshua, nearly two hundred years. One agent 
found we went too far back, but, notwithstanding, I have spent 
much time and money. I do not regret it, and I do feel satisfied 
that some of the descendants of Humphrey's children are in the 
United States, although there is no certainty with any family 
that they will reach it ; but it can be ascertained for five or ten 
dollars from each that are willing to investigate the subject, (as 
there are always a few willing to know their ancestry, at a small 
tax, whether anything is realized or not), whether they descended 
from these brothers or who their ancestry is. I consider it worth 
the attention of the different branches to give it a thorough investi- 
gation. As we have gone so far now, it will not be much expense. 
I have been engaged in this matter over two years and it was not 
until last fall that we got ready to send our agent to England. We 
could not get much encouragement out of our branch, as they 
lived at a distance and were not aware what we were doing. Our 
agent found a large property left by William in 1798, (the list we 
have is correct generally, of which I presume you haVe a copy, as 
I have sent many copies to difl^erent sections) and no one of 
Humphrey's sons have been able to prove their relationship, 
although many in England have tried. Mr. Fordyce was here 
last week. I told him further examination must be made in New 
Jersey, and I thought there was no doubt your ancestry came to 
Massachusetts and from there to Long Island and New Jersey, 
and I hoped you would conclude to ascertain as far as possible,who 
was the first of your family that came over. If there was no one 
to go through with it, I would rather mvestigate it than see it 
dropped. It is well to use economy in the business until there is 
a degree of certainty, if it can be shown. I have counsel in Eng- 
land who informs me any trace to Humphrey's sons or brothers 
he will undertake and get eminent counsel there to institute a 
suit and risk expense, taking pay out of the property if successful. 

Yours in haste, AUGUSTUS JENNINGS. 



4 THE SEVEN BROTHERS 

Among the ancestors who came over in the " Old 
Calledonia " in 1685, as has been suggested, were prob- 
ably the grandparents of the " seven brothers," of whom 
Zebulon (2) was born in 1709, Jacob (3) in 1711, 
and Benjamin (4) in 1716; from which dates it 
would appear that the " seven brothers " belong to the 
second generation after the arrival of the " Calledonia.'' 

We are sensible of the fact that the hypothesis 
here presented, that the so-called "Seven Brothers" are 
probably the grand children of the ancestor who came 
to America in the '''• Old Calledonia,'''' conflicts some- 
what with the traditions of the family. There is much 
reason for believing that these seven were closely re- 
lated and of a recent common ancestor, but it is possi- 
ble that this relationship as between some of them was 
not nearer than that of cousins ; that is to say, the 
"Seven Brothers" were the sons of the son or sons of 
the ancestor who is said to have been one of the Calle- 
donia s passengers. 

Certain it is that in the earliest times to which 
research can accurately lead us, the family of Jennings 
was numerously represented in America. From the 
interest created and the enthusiasm aroused by the 
"Jennings Conventions" of fifty years ago, there re- 
sulted an extensive investigation along the various 
lines of ancestry ; these investigations were carried 
back by those who lived a half century nearer the 
beginning than we do, and there then seemed to be no 
doubting the tradition of the "Seven Brothers." It 
was known then and held to be true ; and we are work- 
ing now in harmony with it. But while this is the 
case, we are open to conviction as to the truth, however 
it may conflict with preconceived theories. That 
the father of one of the "Seven Brothers," Benjamin (4), 
was also named Benjamin, would appear from the 
following :

6 THE SEVEN BROTHERS 

Time, place, and the names mentioned in this 
account are the strongest circumstantial evidence of the 
fact that the Benjamin whose estate is here adminis- 
tered is the Benjamin (4) of the "Seven Brothers." 
Whence it falls out that Benjamin B. Jennings who 
administers the estate is the father of one, if not of all 
of these " brothers," and, this being true, we feel war- 
ranted in saying that the line of Benjamin is authenti- 
cated back to the son of the ancestor who was landed 
from the wreck of the "(9/^ Calledonia.'''' 

We thus raise the question with the hope that this 
hypothesis may be fully investigated and the truth 
positively learned. 

From another source* we have the following : 

"In the Court of Hustings, of the City of London, will be 
found a testation of gift of laud and a copy of t'the Holy Evange- 
lists bound in red leather with a clasp,' to my ' riglit well-beloved 
Zebulon' who is described as passing beyond the sea. There are 
others mentioned but they all ajopear to have remained in 
England." 

Query. — Could this Zebulon who is described as 
"passing beyond the sea," be the ancestor who came 
over in the ^''Old Calledonia.'''' 1 

The following list of early marriage licenses of 
Jennings's is here given as a matter, of record, in the 
hope it may be useful :

same), calling to mind and duly considering the mortality of my 
body, and knowing that it is appointed for man once to die, do 
make and ordain this my last will and testament. Principally 
and first of all I give and recommend my soul into the hands of 
God who gave it, trusting in His mercy and in the merit of my 
dear Redeemer for the remission of all my sins. My body I com- 
mit to the earth, to be buried in a christian like and decent man- 
ner, at the discretion of my executors, nothing doubting but at 
the general resurrection I shall receive the same again by the 
mighty power of God. And, as touching such worldly estate 
wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me in this life, I give, 
devise and dispose of in the following manner, viz : I order all my 
just debts and funeral expenses paid out of my moveable estate. 
I give to my beloved wife Joanna Jennings, one cow and the use 
and profits of all my lands, till my oldest son comes to the age of 
twenty-one years, which is in lieu of her right of dower and power 
of thirds ; also I give to my sd. wife all my moveable estate, after 
the debts and funeral expenses are paid, excepting five pounds 
which I give to my daughter Sarah Jennings, to be paid unto her 
when she arrives to the age of eighteen years. 1 give and bequeath 
to my three sons, Henry Jennings, Jonathan Jennings and Jacob 
Jennings, to them, their heirs and assigns forevei', all and singu- 
lar, ot my Lauds and premises, to be equally divided among 
them, both in quantity and quality, to be divided among them 
when my oldest son, Henry, comes of age, and thenlienry is to 
take his part, and my above sd. wife is to have the use of the 
other sons' parts till the next son comes of age, (which with my 
moveables as is given her above is to enable her to bring up our 
children), and when my sd. second son comes of age he is to take 
his part, and I give my sd. wife the use of my youngest son's part as 
long as she remains my widow, that is, till she marries again. 
And I order each of my above sd. sons, as they come of age, to 
pay to my daughter Susanna Jennings, each one the sum of three 
pounds, six shillings and eight pence, which makes ten pounds. 
It is my will and I order my executors to take particular care that 
no more of the wood and timber be cut that is on my land than to 
support the place with fencing stuff, and fire wood for what fire- 
places as is now in the house. I order my executors to put my 
sons out to trades. If either of my sons die under the age of 
twenty-one years, leaving no issue lawfully begotten of his own 
body, then his part to be equally divided among the survivors of 
my sons, and to be to them, their heirs and assigns forever; and 
if leither of my daughters die under the age of eighteen years 
leaving no issue lawfully begotten of her own body, her part to go 
to the other daughter. And I do make, ordain, constitute and 
appoint My beloved wife Joanna Jennings, and my trusty friend 
William Darby, executors of this my last will and testament ; 
and I do utterly revoke, disannul and disallow all and every

time, and settled in the same vicinity in the counties of 
Fayette, Green and Washington; these counties all 
bordering on the Monongahela River. 

The "Jennings Ferry," kept by Henry, brother of 
Jonathan, was located near Masontown, Fayette Co. 
The home of Jonathan seems to have been at or near 
Brownsville, Washington Co. His daughter, Delilah, 
was born in Brownsville, while Junia, the next child, 
was born in Fayette Co. where his parents were visit- 
ing ; presumably at Masontown. The last year in 
Pennsylvania they were unsettled. 

Jonathan Jennings emigrated from Washington Co. 
Pa., to Washington Co. O., in 1801. With his family 
and household goods he traveled to Wheeling, W. Va., 
in wagons, and from that point floated down the river 
on a flat-boat. He intended to settle on the Big 
Muskingum River, but on arriving at the mouth of the 
Little Muskingum, about dusk, the water was so high 
that it misled them and they entered that river by 
mistake. 

This was on the evening of March 6, 1801. The 
point at which they landed is where Lafaver's mill now 
stands. 

After exploring a little while, Mr. Jennings de- 
cided that he had no need to go further ; the climate 
seemed all that could be desired ; the peach trees were 
in bloom, the grass green and the prospect most invit- 
ing to the weary family. The trip down the river had 
been a hazardous one, and to the parents burdened with 
the care of five children, the eldest of whom was but 
eight years of age, and the youngest, Junia, but an 
infant, it had seemed long and wearisome, and the 
adjacent country being filled with hostile Indians, their 
voyage was extremely perilous. 

So it was that on the morning of March 7th, 1801, 
the family looked with most pleasurable anticipations 
over the beautiful country which was to become their 
home. 

Mr. Jennings built his cabin on what is now known 



20 DESCENDANTS OF ZEBULON 

as the Henry Jennings farm ; there they lived and pros- 
pered and four children were born to them at this place. 

Mr. Jennings united the occupations of shoemaking 
and blacksmithing. He was a man of considerable 
strength of character and was much respected by all 
his acquaintances. By his death at the early age of 
thirty-nine years, his family suffered an irreparable loss. 

Elizabeth Stephenson, wife of Jonathan Jennings, 
was of Scotch-Irish parentage. Her father emigrated 
from Ireland and settled in Delaware, later moving to 
Pennsylvania. 

After the death of Mr. Jennings his widow married 
Mr. William Nixon, a neighbor and widower. They 
both had large families, (she having nine children and 
he having eight) by their former marriages ; and to them 
were born four children, making twenty-one in all. 

Mrs. {^Jennings) Nixon was a good woman and was 
endowed with more than ordinar)^ powers of mind. She 
possessed the love of all her children and step-children, 
to whom she strove to do her duty impartially and 
faithfully. At the time of her removal to Ohio she 
was a Presbyterian, but there being no church of that 
denomination in her locality, she united with the Meth- 
odists and retained her connection with that church 
until her death. She was buried by the side of Jona- 
than Jennings in sight of their old cabin home, in the old 
family burying ground, at Hills, Newport Township, 
Washington County, Ohio. 

The following are copies of deeds from Thomas 
Lord to Jonathan Jennings and from Jonathan Jen- 
nings' heirs to Zebulon Jennings :

Robert Morrison (No. 68) in his auto-biography, 
published \n '' The Scroll" ior April, 1897, page 411, 
says : 

"Robert Morrison, my grandfather, was of Scotch-Irish 
parentage. He was born in County Derry, Ireland. The family 
was of the middle class, neither poor nor rich, and was connected 
in marriage with the Hamiltons in Scotland. In 1765, when 
Bobert was sixteen years old, with his brothers older than him- 
self, he came to America and settled in Delaware. Some of them 
emigrated to the Valley of Virginia ; one kept on south ; another 
wing went west to Vincennes, Kaskasia and St. Louis. 

"After the Revolutionary War, in which Robert had a share 
as one of the 'blue hen's chickens,' as soldiers from Delaware 
were called, he concluded to take his young wife, Elizabeth 
Culbertson, an English woman, and two little children, as I 
believe, and go west. General Washington asked him to take 
his tract of 600 acres in the northwestern part of Fayette County, 
Pa., lying on the Youghiogheny river. He went and looked at 
the land, but thought it too much exposed to incursions from the 
Indians, and continued his journey about fifty miles southwest 
into Green county, and bought out the McCiungs, who took their 
slaves and went to Kentucky, as Pennsylvania had in 1780 passed 
an ordinance of gradual emancipation. There my grandfather 
lived and reared a family of ten children and died at the age of 
eighty-two. There my father, Thomas Morrison, was born and 
reared."

They had no children but raised a large family, a 
number of their adopted children still residing in 
Washington Co. 

"Zebulon Jennings (called by old and young 
*Uncle Zeb' ) like most of the early settlers, was some- 
thing of a 'Jack of all trades,' working as occasion re- 
quired, at blacksmithing, shoemaking, tanning and 
farming. At the time of the removal of his father's 
family to Ohio, he was in his ninth hear. After he 
was of age, Zebulon bought the first eighty acres of 
what is known as Jennings Hill, the consideration 
being a box of glass. He had raised a colt and rode 
it to Wheeling on the 'old trail' — the Woodsfield road — 
where he exchanged it for glass, one box of which was 
already bargained away. He afterwards added many 
more acres. He was a member of Captain Buell's 
company in the war of 1812. His commission as 
Lieutenant in the State Militia -is dated Oct. 11, 1817. 
Later he received a commission as Captain. 

In early life he united with the Baptist church and 
retained his connection with that body up to the time 
of his death. He was an ardent abolitionist, and his 
house was used as a station on the 'Underground Rail- 
way. ' He was a man of strict integrity and goodness 
of heart, which virtues won for him the esteem of his 
neighbors and acquaintances.

Betsey Maxon was one of the first children born in 
the fort at Marietta. Her father, Richard Maxon, set- 
tled on Duck Creek at the same time Stanley and Chap- 
man did. At the age of fifteen, she taught the first 
school ever opened in Duck Creek and continued teach- 
ing in the various settlements near there until she was 
twenty-six. Her contracts read, 'that she shall be paid 
in good merchantable corn and other products, to be 
delivered at Marietta.' One read that the chairman 
of the school committee shall have D. Protsman make 
her a set of silver teaspoons. At her first term there 
were but two books, the spelling book and English 
reader. She taught other things by 'word of mouth' she 
said. But it was not long until they had books, as well 
as bears, who came for the remains of the dinners. 
The school house stood at the mouth of Sugar Run, 
above Caywood.''

Margaret Jennings, or as she was more commonly 
known, "Aunt Peggy," still holds a warm place in the 
hearts of those who knew her well in life. She was a 
woman of more than ordinary powers of mind although 
they were not fully developed. She was a very fluent 
speaker and an earnest exhorter, and was very active in 
the work of the United Brethren Church, of which she 
was a member, although in her earlier years she had 
been a Methodist. 

Her first husband, George Nixon, was the son of 
William Nixon, her step father. He was not a mem- 
ber of any church but was a good man of considerable 
education and had much influence. His death at the 
early age of twenty-five years cut short a life which 
promised to be one of great usefulness and prominence. 

Presley Petty, the second husband of Margaret, 
was a farmer by occupation and much respected by his 
neighbors. He, like his wife, was a member of the 
United Brethren Church. He was a soldier in the war 
of 1812 in Captain John Thorniley's company.

Delilah {Jennings) Reckard was a woman of strong 
character and a devout christian. At the time of the 
removal in 1801, of her father's family from Pennsylva- 
nia to Washington County, Ohio, she was but three 
years old. For eighty years she remained a resident 
of Washington County, and at the time of her death, 
possessed the unqualified esteem and love of her many 
acquaintances. She joined the Methodist Church in 
1820 and remained a faithful and consistent member of 
that denomination till within a few years of her death, 
when, with the most of her family, she left the Method- 
ist and joined the Congregational Church. 

^Joseph Leonard Reckard, or, as he was very gener- 
ally known, Leonard Reckard, was a man of the purest 
life, of gentle disposition and kindly heart ; he merited 
that warm aflfection which was bestowed on him by all 
who knew him. 

In connection with his trade as a blacksmith, he 
opened the first livery stable in Marietta, in which 
business he continued until his death. 

For more than fifty years he was a member of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church. 

*Me spelled his name Record. His father, Calvin Rickard, was a descendant of 
Giles Rickard. Calvin's children spell it Reckard. (See appendix.)

Junia Jennings was converted in 1820 under the 
preaching of Rev. Samuel Hamilton and joined the 
Methodist Church, remaining a faithful member of that 
denomination until he died. When upon his death-bed 
one of the Marietta papers spoke of him in the follow- 
ing manner : 

"Father Junia Jennings, having passed his allotted three 
score and ten years, is now lying very ill at his residence on 
Fourth Street, with scarcely a prospect of his recovery. Father 
Jennings was an active pioneer in the anti-slavery cause in Wash- 
ington County, and an ardent supporter of eveiy good work all 



FOURTH GENERATION. 35 

his life. His many friends will be glad to hear that his last days 
are free from pain and that he views the close calmly and peace- 
fully." 

His pastor, Rev. T. W. Stanley in an obituary 
notice, says : 

"His life is one of those well worth record and stud5^ It was 
an example of faithfulness in all respects. He was always in his 
place at public services and other means, of grace. Though his 
sufferings were constant and frequently so great that he was in 
physical agony, he never absented himself from the sanctuary. 
Rain, heat, pain and weariness kept him not at home. Many of 
the leading men in the churches will remember him as the first 
who approached them upon the subject of religion, the first who 
prayed with them at the altar. He has been a faithful class-leader 
and steward and trustee. He was a good counselor for the pastor 
— the preacher's friend." 

Junia Jennings. was not a man of brilliant attain- 
ments or of exalted station, but he had the attributes 
of the truly great. He was a man of simple, kindly 
nature, and of a genial, cheery disposition ; a man of 
the most intrinsic honesty and purity of character ; he 
had charity for the erring ; a devout christian, he 
pitied but did not condemn the disbeliever. Though 
not possessed of large means, he gave freely, and was 
always the friend of the unfortunate ; upheld by the 
aflfection of his children and the love of so many whom 
he had endeavored to make happy, and firm in the faith 
of God, he passed peacefully away. He left a memory 
which will ever remain green in the hearts of those 
who knew him. 

Mr. Jennings was a shoemaker by occupation but 
held various offices in the city and county governments. 
He served two terms (from Oct. 1842 to Oct. 1846) as 
deputy sheriff (residing at the jail) under George W. 
Barker and was himself sheriff two terms, Oct 1846 to 
Oct. 1850. He was infirmary director from 1861 to 
1870. He was a Mason, the lodge following his 
remains to their last resting place Feb. 20, 1871, the 
95th anniversary of the organization of the American 
Union Lodge No. 1, of which he was a faithful member.

Hannah McCabe,* the first wife of Junia Jennings, 
was a daughter of Robert and Polly {McCracken) 
McCabe, of Athens, Ohio. Polly McCraeken was a 
daughter of Rev. Alexander McCrackenf — a most elo- 
quent preacher. Robert McCabe and Polly McCracken 
were married in Brownsville, Pa., and emigrated to 
Marietta, Ohio, where they were very prominent Meth- 
odists. Tradition says the first Methodist sermon 
preached in Ohio was preached at their home by Robert 
Manly. 

Eliza Ann Reckard,! the second wife of Junia Jen- 
nings, was a daughter of Calvin Rickard and his second 
wife, Rhoda (Borden), widow of George Westgate. 

Her death was the result of infirmities incident to 
her advanced age, and her passing away was as peace- 
ful as had been her life. She died at the home of her 
son in Columbus, Ohio, and was buried by the side of 
her husband in Oak Grove Cemetery, Marietta, Ohio.

Little can be said of Jonathan Jennings which has 

not already been said of his brothers. He was a black- 
smith by occupation and led a quiet, uneventful life. 
With a warm heart and of the strictest integrity, he 
made many friends and but few, if any, enemies. He 
was noted for his great physical strength and unusual 
courage. He was for many years a consistent member 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

Susan Reckard, wife of Jonathan Jennings, was 
well and favorably known in the community in which 
she resided. Not only was she a capable housewife 
and a good mother, but she was also a factor in the 
moral and religious development of the community. 
Her domestic cares did not hinder her activity in the 
work of the church ; indeed she was foremost in seeking 
to bring those with whom she came in contact, into a 
better way of life ; exemplifying in her daily life those 
principles she enthusiastically advocated, she sought to 
live the truth so that she should indeed be "a living 
epistle known and read of all men."

friends of all with whom she came in contact, and, as 
the above is true of her, so it is equally true of her 
husband. Hand in hand they took up the burden of 
life and walked straight in the eyes of men and in the 
fear of God, keeping before them always the example 
of Him, on whose promise of a glorious hereafter, they 
so ardently relied. 

Though not wealthy, they gave bounteously ; and 
in the community in which they so long lived, there 
are many hearts that will long hold in grateful remem- 
brance the loving counsels, the cheerful sympathy, the 
kirdly encouragement and willing aid tendered to all 
by Lerhen Fouts and Elizabeth, his wife.

What has been said of his brothers is equally true 
of Henry Jennings. His life was quiet and peaceful, 
unmarked by any stirring events. United to a lady of 
amiable temperament and of a beautiful character, his 
domestic relations were all that could be desired. 
Realizing that "as the twig is bent, the tree is inclined," 
they reared their children in the fear of God and in the 
love of their fellow beings. 

In his varied pursuits as a farmer, merchant and 
hotel keeper, Mr. Jennings held the respect and esteem 
of his associates, and by industry, he accumulated a 
modest competence. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Jennings were earnest members 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Jennings 
was for years a licensed exhorter of that body. 

His life abounded in good and noble works and 
when the time came for him to descend into the dark 
valley and shadow of death, he feared no evil, but ac- 
cepted the summons as a call to his reward from the 
Master to whom he had been a good and faithful ser- 
vant.

Rhoda {Jennings) McKibben, the youngest child 
and the last survivor of the family of Jonathan and 
Elizabeth {Stephenson) Jennings died in Amboy, Blue 
Earth County, Minn. For fifty-five years she was the 
loved and loving wife of Joseph McKibben. Their 
married life was beautiful in its harmony. Their chil- 
dren, as they grew up, had before them always an ex- 
ample of domestic bliss that was the embodiment of 
peace and happiness on earth. 

When the echo of the guns fired at Fort Sumpter 
told that their country was in danger, eight stalwart 
sons received the blessings of these noble parents, and 
rushed bravely to her defence. Mr. McKibben whose 
age caused him to be refused admission into the army, 
said : "Well, if I am too old to fight, I am not too old 
to pray,'' and every night and morn from his family 
altar arose a humble petition to the God of battles, 
praying that he would preserv^e the Union and protect 
the absent ones. 

When peace dawned again upon our stricken land, 
and the family once more gathered around the hearth- 
stone, there was one vacant chair. While their hearts 
were filled with grief for the loss of their first born, 
they thanked the Heavenly Father that he had fallen 



FOURTH GENERATION. 41 

in the cause of right aud justice, and with meekness and 
humility they took up the burden laid upon them. 

In the foregoing pages we have taken the members 
of Jonathan Jennings' family individually and endeav- 
ored to show their leading characteristics. The little 
that remains to be said can be said of them collectively. 

When this family came to Ohio, but twelve years 
had elapsed since the first settlement had been made at 
Marietta, on the Ohio Company's Purchase. Twelve 
years of hard labor by the colonists had made but little 
impression upon the compact and almost boundless 
forest, and Jonathan Jennings and his family found 
their home an almost unbroken wilderness. Nearly all 
of the members of that family lived to see the forest 
disappear under the ax, and in the progress of improve- 
ment, they saw the rude cabins of the pioneers give 
way to more pretentious dwellings ; saw the broad river 
flowing before their doors become a highway of com- 
merce and bear upon its bosom hundreds of steam 
vessels; saw their homes and the homes of their fathers 
connected by bands of electricity; heard the whistles 
of the locomotives echoing through the valley, and saw 
civilization spreading over all the mighty territory. 

In eflfecting this revolution, a revolution accom- 
plished by courage, industry and intelligence, they 
nobly bore their parts. They did not aspire to public 
positions but were willing to work hard, and content 
to earn independence and moderate fortunes by econ- 
omy, thrift, and laborious effort. Though their names 
are not exalted in history, their descendants can rejoice 
in the fact that they fairly won a right to the proudest 
title an American can bear : They were good citizens. 

Although their educational advantages were lim- 
ited, they were all possessed of good intellect which 
made them respected by their neighbors. 

Through the lives of all ran a deeply religious 
vein which was a marked characteristic. At time of 
the advent of the family into Ohio, they were Presby- 



42 DESCENDANTS OF ZEBULON 

terians, but there being no church of that denomina- 
tion near, they subsequently became Methodists. 

And now that all have passed away, it is with a 
melancholy pleasure that we recall their stories of hon- 
orable achievements and labors of a time when the eyes 
now closed in death, were bright with intelligence, and 
the strong hearts forever stilled, were beating with life 
and courage. Their posterity will do well to keep 
always in sight the examples of their well spent and 
useful lives.

Jonathan Jennings Nixon was a farmer and lived 
on the homestead farm in Washington County, Ohio. 
In 1853 he removed his family in wagons to Galesburg, 
Illinois, and from there he removed to Missouri. At 
the beginning of the war he was ordered to leave Mis- 
souri on account of his Union sentiments. He settled 
at Carlinville, 111., and enlisted in Union Army at 
Springfield, 111., on April 25, 1861, in Co. K, 7th 111. 
Vol. Inf , for three months service; was mustered out 
July 25, 1861. He re-enlisted in Co. C, 10th 111. 
Cavalry, and served until discharged in Dec, 1862, for 
disability. He was a brave man and "feared no noise" 
as he said, but was disabled from further service. He 
had one son and three sons-in-law in the service. He 
was well known and liked, and honored for his benevo- 
lence and charitable work. He was not a member of 
any church but practiced what he "preached," lived 
and died a good citizen, honoring his country and its 
laws. 



Mary (Cis/ey) Nixon died April 10, 1898, on Easter 
Sunday. She had been an invalid for about seven 
years, bedfast most of the time. She was a kind and 
good mother, reared five girls to womanhood "whose 
titles were as clear as crystal."

The parentage and birthplace of Jacob Jennings is 
to us at present unknown. It is a tradition in the 
family that on account of a shipwreck his entry into 
America is not of record, t Dr. T. H. Stockton, of the 
Methodist Protestant Church, in his biographical dis- 
course on the life and character of Rev. Samuel Ken- 
nedy Jennings, M. D. says : "His paternal grandfather 
(Jacob Jennings, buried at Bound Brook, N. J.) was 
born in New England, the North Brittain or Scotland of 
our own greater country, and was descended from one of 
the pilgrims who settled at Plymouth, Mass. He early 
removed to New Jersey, where he became a member of 
the Presbyterian Church and where for thirty years he 
filled the office of Ruling Elder, being particularly dis- 
tinguished in all his sphere as a peace-maker.'' From 

*The date of his marriage, name, dates of birth and death of his wife are to the compiler 
unknown.

sources not altogether atfthentic, but from letters and 
proceedings of the conventions of the Jennings family 
in 1848 and 1850, he is called one of the "seven 
brothers "—Joseph (1), Zebulon (2), Jacob (3), Benja- 
min (4), Jonathan (5), John (6), and David (7). 

In the Revolutionary War he served as "Minute 
Man " of the Morris Co. Militia, as shown by the follow- 
ing copy of certificate : 

State of New Jersey, 
Oefice of Adjutant Genekal. 

Trentok-, April 12, 1897. 

It is certified that the records of this office show that Jacob 
Jennings served as a Private " Minute Man " in the Morris 
County, New Jersey, Militia, during the Revolutionary- War. 

William S. Stryker, 

Adjutant General. 

The " Minute Men '' were called out at various 
times during an alarm "for tours of duty," and were 
assigned to any company needing men. 

"Jacob Jennings a member of Provincial Congress 
at Trenton, May 23, 1775.'' (Query : Was it this Jacob 
or his son Jacob?) \Sn€[\s^ Hunterdon & Somerset, 
page 30.] 

Rev. Samuel C. Jennings in his " Recollections of 
Seventy Years," (page 142) says : 

"Then we spent the Sabbath with our excellent brother, Rev. 
John Ewing, 'D. D., at Clinton, New Jersey. Afterwards he took 
us to Redingtou, where niy Grandfather, Dr. Jacob Jennings, 
had practiced medicine, and where the dust of his wife Mary, the 
daughter of Rev. Dr. Kennedy, reposes, having died in 1791. We 
also went to see the resting place of my great-grandfather, Jacob 
Jennings, at Bound Brook. He died at the age of 76. 

"My great-grandfather, Dr. Kennedy's, tomb has inscribed 
upon it : 

'Died August 21, A. D., 1787, in the 67th year of his age.' 

"It is recited by Dr. Miller, in the History of Dr. Rodgers, 
that he could speak the Latin language as readily as the English. 
His wife Sarah died January 1, 1787, in the 64th year of her age. 



FIRST GENERATION. 183 

Her dust reposes beside his at Basking Ridge, where they both 
toiled and experienced trouble during the Revolutionary War 
with Great Britain ; where he preached with great power, and to 
which employment, when necessary, he added his skill in the 
healing art. Thus the inscriptions on the tombstones testify that 
my three grand-parents all died the same year— 1787— leaving a 
bright record of piety to be remembered by their posterity."

LittelPs Passaic Valley says : 

" Doctor Jacob Jennings built the 'red house' that stood by 
the well west of Nathan Elmer's house and lived there. 
He had children : 

1. Sarah, baptized 28th January, 1770, 

2. Samuel Kennedy, baptized 29th September, 1771. 

He sold his house and farm to Thomas Sanders, of New York. 
I do not know that Sanders ever lived there. Nathaniel Littell 
lived there from April, 1784, until April, 1786." 

Rev. Dr. Jacob Jennings studied medicine and

When the war was ended and when he was over 
forty years of age, he was licensed to preach by the 
Dutch Reformed Church. He did not, however, upon 
entering the new calling, abandon the old one, but 
went about among his people as indeed the beloved 
physician, diligent in his labors for their spiritual and 
bodily health. After his ordination, he removed to 
Virginia, remaining there with his motherless children 
two years, and in 1791 removed into the bounds of Red- 
stone Presbytery. He became Pastor of Dunlap Creek, 
Fayette County, but gave a portion of his time to 
Muddy Creek and Little Redstone Congregations. In 
1802 he was chosen the first Moderator of the Synod of 
Pittsburg, immediately afterwards commencing the 
" Glorious Revival " during which Dr. Jennings (so- 
called from his continued practice of medicine) labored 
with great acceptance in many of the churches. His 
venerable appearance, long white hair and solemn man- 
ner, gave weight to his utterances. " He educated four 
sons at Cannonsburg, practiced medicine extensively, 
and ministered to two congregations, traveling to dis- 
tant congregations when he had to be helped on his 
horse. His noble wife was a helpmate indeed. After 
a life of toil. Dr. Jennings died Feb. 17, 1813, worn out 
in the service of the church, battle-scarred in the 
defence of his country."

Mary Kennedy, the noble wife of Dr. Jacob Jen- 
nings, and mother of his children, was probably born 
at "Basking Ridge," New Jersey. 

From the "Story of an Old Farm," by Andrew D. 
Millick, Jr., page 159, we copy the following: 

"Basking Ridge, in Bernards Township, already possessed a 
flourishing community with a well established Presbyterian 
Church under the charge of a Scotch worthy, the Reverend 
Samuel Kennedy.* His education had been gained at Edinburgh 
University, and coming to America he was, in 1751, ordained 
pastor of this congregation, which he faithfully served for thirty- 
six years at a salary of one hundred and ten pounds. 

"In addition to his ministerial duties he practiced medicine, 
and established and took charge of a classical school, which at- 
tained to great celebrity." 

*Samubi, Kennedy— Kennedy, Samuel, clergyman, b. in Scotland in 1720 ; d. in 
Basking Ridge, N. J., 31 Aug., 1787. He was graduated at the University of Edinburgh, 
came to this country and, after studying theology, was called in 1751 to be pastor of a 
Presbyterian Church at Basking Ridge, where he remained until his death. During the 
meeting of the synod of New York and Philadelphia in May, 1760, attention was called 
to the case of Rev. William McClenachan, a clergyman of the Church of England in 
Philadelphia, who had aroused enmity in his denomination by some display of religious 
zeal. Several members of the synod, including Mr. Kennedy, addressed a letter to the 
Archbishop of Canterbury, asking him to retain McClenachan in his pastorate, which he

fair soon becoming public, the missive found its way into print and was severely criticised. 
During the next meeting of the synod it was sold in the streets of Philadelphia with the

his labors as pastors those of teacher and medical practitioner.' ' — (Appleton's Cyclope-

Extract from Dr. T. H. Stocton's address on Rev. Samuel Kennedy Jennings, M. D.: 
"His maternal grandfather (named above) was a native of Scotland, but on account of 
religious persecution was brought to Ireland and educated at Dublin, whence he emi- 
grated to America and settled in New Jersey. He is said to have been a remarkably fine 
classical scholar. As a Latinist in particular, it is reported of him that he could at any 
time ascend the pulpit and deliver an extemporanious discourse in that language. He 
was brother and heir of the Earl of Cassilis and so descended from a family closely con- 
nected with the very origin of the Reformation in Scotland, prior to the days of Knox 
and the Melvilles. He did not return to Scotland, however, to claim his feudal rights, 
honorable as they were, preferring, it is presumed, the prospective greatness of the new, 
ampler and freer world. He married a Miss Allen, of Philadelphia, and was blest with a 
number of children."

"Dr. Samuel Kennedy Jennings was born in Essex 
County, New Jersey, June 6, 1771, and died in Balti- 
more, Md., Oct 19, 1854. His parentage was highly 
respectable, influential and educated. His grand-father 
on his mother's side — Rev. Dr. Kennedy, of Scottish 
birth — was a man of distinguished piety and learning. 

"Under the tuition of such a preceptor (for the edu- 
cation of Dr. Jennings was under his direction), it may 
be supposed that the pupil was admirably taught. The 
old gentleman used to tell his grandson, in order to in- 
cite him to diligent study, that his mother, when 
young, would spin a pound of cotton a day, and yet 
keep up with her brothers in her Latin lessons. We 
mention these things to show how favorable were his 
antecedents to the securement of a thorough and 
elegant education." 

In 1790 he was graduated from Rutgers, and 
studied and practiced medicine for a few years in 
Pennsylvania. 

At this period of his life, young Jennings was a 
skeptic. But from a conversation had by him with a 
Methodist preacher in his father's house, he was led to 
give over his erroneous notions, and became an enthu- 
siastic Christian. In 1794 he became an itinerant Min- 
ister in the Methodist Episcopal Church, and in 1814 
was ordained an Elder. 

"And such a Preacher as he was ! Differing in 
style and manner from all others, — purely extempora- 



THIRD GENERATION. 191 

neous, yet systematic, analytical, wonderfully compre- 
hensive in his grasp of thought, and with a diction that 
flowed like a river, full, abundant, clear and sparkling, 
pre-eminently practical and thoroughly evangelical, 
Dr. Jennings rose at once to the highest eminence as a 
pulpit orator. And he was great ! — great in the essen- 
tial element of true greatness ; a heart instinctively 
noble in all the generosities of humanity, and intellect 
of the highest order, and heart and intellect both under 
the constant influence of the Spirit of holiness," 

The following anecdote we give as an illustration 
of Dr. Jenning's power in his prime : 

In the spring of 1818, while on a visit to Baltimore, T was 
invited by a friend, Rev. James Armstrong, to accompany him to 
the Wilk Street Methodist Episcopal Church, to hear the great 
Dr. Jennings preach. At the time referred to there was a gracious 
revival of religion in progress in that station, then under the pas- 
toral care of Rev. John Davis. The appointment was at 11 
o'clock, Sunday morning. Although I arrived a full hour before 
the time, I found the place crowded to over-flowing, so that it 
was with some difficulty that I could obtain a seat. The text was 
taken from I Cor. 1 :21. "For after that in wisdom of God the 
world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness 
of preaching to save them that believe." I was then too young 
and too imperfectly acquainted with theology to understand fully 
and of course to appreciate the masterly manner in which he treated 
the subject, yet, one thing I distinctly remember, he simplified 
his views very much towards the end of the sermon, remarking : 
"God, to hide pride from man, often makes use of the most unlikely 
means to bring about his salvation." He then related a ciicum- 
stance which took place under his own observation in or near 
Lynchburg, Va., referring to Colonel Lassals, a notorious infidel, 
who was converted to the truth of Christianity by means of a few 
words spoken by a pious slave. 

After the sermon was over, Mr. Davis, assisted by Rev. 
Robert Burch, then stationed at Light Street, invited persons to 
come forward and join the church, when one hundred and four 
individuals gave in their names as probationers. Such a scene of 
religious interest I have never witnessed since, nor is it at all 
probable I shall ever look upon the like again. In the evening I 
heard him preach at Light Street. The text was I Cor. 13:2. 
The sermon was short, not more than forty minutes, but the effect 
upon the congregation was exciting in the highest degree. That 
precious word "Charity" seemed to be burnt into every heart, 



192 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

while every bosom glowed as a furnace seven times heated. In 
the course of the summer Caroline Street Church was commenced. 
The lot selected for the building was then a large sand hill, from 
which the Doctor addressed the largest assembly ever brought 
together in Baltimore for such an occasion. 

I met Dr. Jennings a day or two before his decease, at the 

corner of Baltimore and Calvert Streets, and thought I had not 
seen him look better for some years past. I was much surprised 
in reading Friday morning's paper to see his death announced, and 
that the funeral would take place at 1 o'clock. I hastened up to 
Dr. Owings', his devoted son-in-law, at whose house he died, and 
arrived just in time to hear the closing remarks of that eloquent 
minister, Mr. Stockton. 

As I stood by the coffin and gazed for the last time on the 
placid countenance of the venerable man, who, more than thirty 
years ago filled my eyes and warmed my heart, the words of Mr. 
Wesley came forcibly to my mind. They were spoken with 
reference to the life and death of William Edmonson, a pious 
Quaker, from whom he differed upon some points of doctrine and 
discipline: ''When I die let my spirit be with the spirit of 
William Edmonson.'' So I say of Dr. Jennings, though we 
honestly differed upon some points of church policy : " When I 
die let my spirit be with the spirit of Samuel K. Jennings." 

Baltimore, Oct. 23, 1854. W. Hamilton. 

"For several months before his death, he was ex- 
pecting his dissolution. Almost every night, when he 
would retire, as his daughter, Mrs. Owings, would 
accompany him to his chamber and give him the accus- 
tomed kiss of aflfection as she bade him 'good night,' 
he would say to her : 'Mary, my child, if you should 
find the old man dead in the morning, remember that 
he was not afraid of death.' 

" 'Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of 
His saints.' 'Precious in the memory of the Church is 
the name of Samuel K. Jennings.' " 

The following is contributed by one who knew 

Dr. Jennings : 

Thirty years ago no house of worship in this city would con- 
tain the congregations that assembled to hear this eloquent 
preacher of the gospel. His manner was all generous, his matter 
solid and strictly evangelical and his extemporaneous ability as 
remarkable, perhaps, as that of any other man who ever stood in 
the pulpit. We heard a brother once state that on a certain 



THIRD GENERATION. 193 

occasion, having called Dr. Jennings to the pulpit, he requested 
him to officiate in his stead as he was unwell. After having con- 
sented, the Doctor said, "While 1 read a hymn, brother, select 
the text you intended to preach from." The brother was some- 
what surprised at such a request, but knowing Dr. Jennings, he 
did so, and after the preliminaries the preacher arose and with 
every indication of system, and with his wonted ability and dis- 
crimination, proceeded to the explanation and enforcement of the 
passage, too, by no means leading to the ordinary and trodden 
paths of pulpit declamation. 

But Dr. Jennings is not now what he was thirty years ago. 
After an absence of eight years from Baltimore, he has returned a 
feeble old man. The passer-by pauses on the street to notice the 
bending form and the feeble step of a venerable personage, whom 
he is at first at a loss to recognize , but a prolonged examination 
reveals what was once the noble person so familiar to the Metho- 
dist community of this city. What changes time makes! It is 
sad to look upon such a transformation ; but the sadness is 
mingled with a respect approaching reverence when we remember 
what he once was, while his godly life assures us what he will 
soon become. 

A few moments conversation will serve to show those who 
enjoy this privilege, that in meeting Dr. Jennings we meet a 
mind majestic, though its tenement is in ruins. We have been 
favored with repeated interviews since his return, and in each 
have discovered frequent glimpses of the great heart and intellect 
of this father in Israel. 

Dr. Jennings is eighty-three years of age. Until two or three 
years since, he was able to j)ractice in his profession, and occa- 
sionally to preach. But a stroke of paralysis has rendered the 
prospect of johysical exertion for the future almost hopeless. 

Of his valuable labors in the cause of reform, his self sac- 
rifice and his uncompromising adherence to principle throughout 
the whole of that meraiorable conflict,the Church is well informed. 

As we look upon him we are reminded of the exquisite lines 

of Holmes : 

They say that in his prime. 

Ere the pruning knife of Time 

Cut him down. 
Not a nobler man Avas found 
By the Crier, on his round 

Through the town. 

But, now, he walks the streets, 
And he looks at all he meets, 

Sad and wan ; 
And he shakes his feeble head, 
That it seems as if he said, 
They are gone !

The mossy marbles rest 

On the lips that he has pressed 

In their bloom ; 
And the names he loved to hear,

On the tomb ! 

*Dr. Jennings was one of the prime movers in the 
introduction of lay representation in the conferences of 
the Methodist Church and finally was expelled from 
this connection and organized a new body known as 
" The Methodist Protestant Church." He was distin- 
guished as a pulpit orator and evangelist. 

Dr. Jennings was one of the founders of the Wash- 
ington Medical College (now extinct) and became emi- 
nent in his profession. He removed to Alabama in 
1845, returned to Baltimore in 1853 and died in that 
city Oct. 19, 1854. 

Dr. Jennings was a remarkably handsome man, 
of commanding personal appearance, and had a pecu- 
liarly rich and sonorous voice.

Rev. Obadiah Jennings. 



THIPD GENERATION. 195 

Rev. Samuel C Jennings, in his "Recollections of 
Seventy Years,'* says: 

" My father was Dr. Ebenezer Jennings, who practiced medi- 
cine extensively and was chosen a member of the Legislature to 
represent Washington County at Lancaster in 1806. While there, 
he procured at Philadelphia the vaccine matter that Dr. Jenner, 
of London, had discovered to be a preventive of small-pox. On 
his return home he tried it on his children and others. Having 
been elected a second time to the Legislature, and being benevo- 
lent and persevering, he started, suffering with the influenza, hav- 
ing especially in view the passage of an act of the Assembly to have 
all the poor of the state vaccinated gratuitously. In this he suc- 
ceeded ; but his efforts and exposure fixed upon him pulmonary 
consumption, in which state he returned. 

He was nominated as a candidate to represent his district in 
Congress; but he became more and more emaciated, so that by 
the following November, 1808, his life on earth ended, in the 32d 
year of his age, leaving his children orphans." 

His monument in the Cross Creek Cemetery bears the follow- 
ing inscription: "He was much esteemed as a physician, as a 
legislator, and as a Christian."

It is much to be regretted that many of the facts in 
the life of Obadiah Jennings, D. D., who was distin- 
guished for great natural ability, sound and polished 
learning, genuine piety, sturdy morality and eminent 
usefulness to his day and race, a man upon whom was 
conferred the highest honors of church and college, and 
who attained eminence in two honored professions, are 
now inaccessible. Such, however, is the fact ; and 
while we view it with regret, it but gives us a greater 
incentive to persevere in our work and rescue from 
oblivion and put on permanent record such notes of the 
lives of this family as may still be obtained. Obadiah 
Jennings was born near Baskingridge, New Jersey, Dec. 
13, 1778, and died in Nashville, Tenn., Jan. 12, 1832. 
He came with his father from New Jersey to Virginia 
about the year 1789, the family removing to Fayette 
County, Pennsylvania, in 1791. 

As we have said. Dr. Jennings was a man of super- 
ior natural abilities, and being possessed of those popu- 
lar qualities which insure success, and liberally educated 
in the arts and sciences, he looked to the profession of 
the law as a proper field for the exercise of his powers. 
After completing his course of study at the Cannons- 
burg Academy, he entered the law office of John 
Simonton, of Washington, Pa. , as a student, and after 
successfully pursuing the prescribed course of study, he 
was admitted to the bar and began the practice of law 
in Washington, Pa., about 1800, and perhaps the same 
year moved to Steubenville, Ohio, where he was a suc- 
cessful lawyer until 1811, when he removed to Wash- 



THIRD GENERATION. 197 

ington, Pa., intending to continue the practice of law 
in the courts both of Pennsylvania and Ohio. 

About the time of his return to Washington, Pa., 
he joined the Presbyterian Church, and soon after was 
chosen a ruling elder of the church in that place. His 
success as a lawyer had been immediate, and although 
young and but a recent member of the bar which 
boasted many noted names, he soon was known as " a 
distinguished lawyer." 

But he felt another call upon him and while doubt- 
less he took broad views of life, and would not deny 
that those who aimed at distinction might have no 
ignoble motive, yet, for him, he felt that fame and gain 
must not be the object of his life's work. He would 
make duty well performed and usefulness to mankind 
the guides of his life. Governed by these motives, we 
find him abandoning a profession in which he had not 
only the promise, but in a large measure the possession 
of success and distinction, to go into a calling which 
then, in a new country, could hold out the prospect of 
little of comfort and no luxury. He was a man right 
loyal to his convictions ; a man who lived for duty, and 
was willing to follow anywhere at the command of that 
" stern, but beautiful daughter of the voice of God." 

In the year 1816 he was licensed to preach by the 
Presbytery. He studied divinity probably at the Col- 
lege of New Jersey, now Princeton, from which he 
received his degree of Doctor of Divinity. Having 
been ordained a minister, in 1817 he accepted a call 
to the Presbyterian Church of Steubenville, Ohio, 
and continued their pastor six j'^ears. He then accepted 
a call to the Presbyterian Church in Washington, Pa., 
and removed there in 1823. After a pastorate of five 
years there, he accepted a call to the Presbyterian Church 
of Nashville,Tenn. , where he died Jan. 12, 1832, and was 
there buried. He was at one time President of the 
Washington and Jefferson College, at Washington, Pa. 

Of his ministerial life we can justly say that his 
natural gifts, his broad culture, his sturdy loyalty to 



198 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

duty and his cordial support of all the aggresive work 
of the church, brought him into an unsought promi- 
nence. He was a progressive man, willing to wel- 
come new measures if they commended themselves to 
his judgment, obeying the apostolic precept: Try all 
things ; hold fast to that which is good." His learned 
attainments were recognized by the bestowal of the 
degree of Doctor of Divinity upon him. His pulpit 
abilities brought him to the charge of the Presbyterian 
Church of Steubenville, Ohio, then one of the most 
important churches of the west. 

He was a member of the Ohio Presbytery and when 
the Steubenville Presbytery was formed in 1819, he was 
one of the leaders. He was at once elected a member 
of the standing committee on "Missions" and also of 
an educational society, auxiliary to the educational 
society of the Presbyterian Church, this proving that he 
was a man of spirit and energy and in sympathy with 
the progressive movements upon which the churches of 
the land were then entering. While some held aloof 
and others busied themselves with finding objections, 
theoretical and practical, he and his associates entered 
heart and soul into the work of " Missions and Educa- 
tion.'' It was the day when foundations were laid and 
it was the privilege and joy of Dr. Obadiah Jennings to 
help lay deep and strong, the foundations of that great 
aggressive work which is the glory of the church of 
to-day. 

By consulting the records of the Steubenville 
Presbytery, we find that at a meeting of that body at 
Black Springs, April 18, 1820, Dr. Jennings was chosen 
a Commissioner to the General Assembly. At a meet- 
ing at Two Ridges, April 16, 1822, he was again selected 
to fill that office. But a still greater honor was in store 
for him. At the meeting of the General Assembly, the 
highest office in the gift of the Church, the Moderator- 
ship of that body, was by a vote of the Commissioners, 
bestowed upon him. Although at present writing we 
cannot consult the records, yet it is safe to affirm that

he was present at the next meeting of the Assembly 
and as the retiring Moderator he preached the opening 
sermon. Afterwards he, together with Gen. Andrew 
Jackson, was appointed by the General Assembly to 
select a site for the Western Theological Seminary, 
which site they fixed at Allegheny, Pa. 

Anna { Wilson) Jennings, the second wife of Rev. 
Obadiah Jennings, D. D., was a daughter of Dr. James 
Wilson, of Wye Mills, on the Eastern shore of Mary- 
land, who received his medical education at Edinburgh, 
Scotland ; and after his matriculation there, he practiced 
his profession in Maryland and Pennsylvania. During 
this time he gave his attention to Theology, and at 
length became a Minister in the Presbyterian Church. 
As such he was very highly regarded by many churches 
of that denomination in Maryland and southeastern 
Pennyslvania. He was eminent as a scholar and skill- 
ful physician. His wife was Miss Sally Stuart, a 

daughter of Col. Stuart, one of the foremost 

military leaders in the State of Maryland in the War 
of the Revolution. He performed distinguished services 
in support of Washington in his later campaigns. 

Rev. Dr. Obadiah Jennings and Anna Wilson were 
married at the house of her uncle, Rev. Thomas Read, 
D. D., in Wilmington, Delaware, who officiated as 
clergyman upon the occasion in the presence of his 
wife, Mary {Stuart) Read, an own aunt of the bride.

No children by either marriage, 

Jonathan Jennings was the seventh child of Dr. 
Jacob and Mary {Kennedy) Jennings. It was granted 
to this son to take a prominent part in the afifairs of the 
nation, and to mould with a master's hand the charac- 
ter and destiny of a great commonwealth. He, as all 
the children of Dr. Jacob Jennings, was born in New 
Jersey. While still a child he was taken by his father 
to Fayette County, Pennsylvania, and it was there, 
probably, that he received his education. After a life 
of eminent usefulness and distinction, he died at 
Charleston, Indiana, in 1834. He left no children. 

It is with a feeling of gratification and honest pride 
and also of devout gratitude that we trace the career of 
this man, who, always loyal to his convictions, which 
were true to Truth, played so important a part in the 
early history of the Northwest. He battled manfully 
for the cause of right and freedom, and his views on the 
dignity of humanity were so exalted and so just, that 
his conception of Freedom was as broad as humanity. 
He knew that freedom is the God-given heritage of 
every man, the birthright of every child of God ; and 
when greed and ambition would rob men of this heri- 
tage, and would make a commonwealth their partner 
in crime, Jonathan Jennings, true to his sense of justice 
and right and true to the teachings of his youth, man- 
fully opposed them, and gaining a victory for Freedom, 
saved a commonwealth to the "Truth of Man.'' 

Like all the children of Dr. Jacob Jennings, Jona- 
than Jennings was fairly well educated and entered a 
profession. It is a significant and noteworthy fact that 
all the sons of this family who reached manhood, 



THIRD GENERATION. 201 

entered professions. Jonathan was a lawyer. It 
appears that very soon after his admission to the bar he 
went to Indiana, for in 1806 we find him taking a 
prominent, indeed the leading part in the affairs of the 
Territory. He was a very young man, doubtless the 
junior of most of the attorneys and politicians with 
whom he was associated; but his wealth of intellect 
and force of character brought him to the front and 
made him, despite his youth, the leader and represen- 
tative of the better element in the Territory. 

That the character and value of his services may be 
appreciated, it may be well to consider the circum- 
stances in which he was placed. By the ordinance of 
1787, as is well known, slavery was forever prohibited 
in the great Northwest Territory, from which several 
commonwealths have been formed ; commonwealths 
which by the intelligence, morality and thrift of their 
inhabitants demonstrate the truth of the principles of 
the ordinance and reflect credit upon both the judgment 
and motives of the author of that celebrated document. 
But the principles of freedom embodied in the ordinance 
were not permitted to have undisputed supremacy. The 
southern portion of Indiana was largely settled by 
people from the southern states, where slavery was not 
only a recognized but an approved institution. These 
people naturally wished to bring their customs with 
them in their new homes. But the ordinance stood in 
the way of slavery and so they made an organized 
effort to have the ordinance repealed. It was upon this 
issue that the campaign for Delegate to Congress was 
made in 1806. The pro-slavery party. was aggressive 
and the friends of freedom became justly alarmed. 
They realized that the destiny of the future state 
depended upon that election, and they determined to 
make a strong fight for the protection of human liberty. 
They found their leader in Jonathan Jennings, whom 
they nominated for the office, and who conducted his 
campaign with so much energy and wisdom that he led 
his party triumphantly to victory. 



202 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

The state was saved and the glory of the victory 
was in a large degree due to this "man of convictions," 
Jonathan Jennings. He served as Delegate to Congress 
until the admission of Indiana as a state, in 1816, (being 
three times elected to Congress). Then the people, in 
recognition of his past services, his worth of character 
and ability, elected him their first Governor. 

To him, thus, was largely intrusted the framing of 
the constitution of the new state, and of giving form 
and direction to those tendencies which determine the 
character of a commonwealth. But the people were 
not yet satisfied with the honors which they had 
bestowed upon him, and that his name and the memory 
of services might live in the hearts of their descendants, 
they named in his honor one of the counties in the 
state for which he had done so much and in the pros- 
perity of which he took so much manly pride. 

At length, freed from the cares and demands of 
public life, laying aside the pressing burden of civic 
duties, he retired to his home in Charleston. It may 
be that he anticipated years of quiet comfort and ease 
in the rest which he had so well earned. But it was 
not to be ; in the full possession of his powers and in 
the enjoyment of the earthly honors showered upon 
him, in the year 1834, at the age of fifty years, lie was 
called to the everlasting reward of righteousness. 

" Divinely Gifted Man, 
Whose life in low estate began 
And on a simple village green 



Who makes by force his merit known 
And lives to clutch the golden keys, 

To mould a mighty state's decrees 
And shai)e the whisper of a Throne ; 

And moving up from high to highest, 
Becomes on Fortune's crowning slope 

The pillar of a people's hope. 



THIRD GENERATION. 203 

From the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette, Decem- 
ber 1, 1894, I copy part : 

Brookville, Ind., Nov. 30, 1894. 

The State of Indiana has tardily done honor to the 
memory of one of her earliest and most illustrious sons. 
After sixty years of forgetfulness she has raised a mon- 
ument of granite over the ashes of her first Governor, 
Jonathan Jennings. 

Governor Jennings has lain in a forgotten and un- 
marked grave for half a century, when men again began 
to remember his wonderful achievements in the early 
politics of the state, his heroic services as the first dele- 
gate to the National Congress, and his strong hand in 
shaping and controlling the destiny of the infant 
Hoosier State. 

In 1862 an unsuccessful attempt was made to se- 
cure an appropriation, by the Legislature of Indiana, 
for the purpose of erecting a monument to the memory 
of the first Governor ; but it was not until ten years 
later, at the last session, that the appropriation was 
secured. 

The stone is seven feet tall and five feet wide at the 

base. The following inscription is inscribed upon its 

face: 

In Memory of 

JONATHAN JENNINGS, 

First Governor of the 

State of Indiana. 

Born 1784. Died 1834. 

Erected under the Act of 

The General Assembly. 

Mr. Jennings came into prominence in Indiana as 
the Clerk of the territorial Legislature. He gained 
quite an acquaintance with the leading men of that 
day, and when, in 1809, Indiana became entitled to a 
delegate in Congress, he was made the anti-slavery 
candidate, and, after a hard fought contest, was elected. 

During this campaign the pro-slavery men tried 
every way to involve Jennings in a duel, but he avoided 



204 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

it. In 1811 he was re-elected, and again in 1813 was 
elected. On the 28th of December, 1815, Mr. Jennings 
presented a bill to Congress to enable the people to 
take the necessary steps toward statehood. Delegates 
were elected to a convention to form a State Constitu- 
tion, and Mr. Jennings was appointed as one of the 
delegates from Clark County. The Convention met in 
Corydon on the 10th of June, 1816, and Jonathan 
Jennings was made President. After a nineteen days* 
session, it gave to the people a Constitution, under 
which the State was governed for thirty-four years. 
Gov. Jennings had much to do in shaping the policy of 
the new State. His ripe experience in matters politi- 
cal, made him the logical leader in the Convention. 

On the first Monday in August, 1816, the citizens 
of Indiana voted for the State Officers under the Con- 
stitution. Jonathan Jennings was elected Governor. 
He received 5,211 votes. His competitor was Thomas 
Posey, then Territorial Governor of Indiana. The 
slavery question was made the issue of this exciting 
campaign. Jennings was an anti-slavery man, and he 
won by a majority of 1,277 votes over his opponent. 
Here is an incident of this campaign: — The farm hands 
of Wm. Blotcher were busily engaged in chopping 
wood in the sparsely settled district of Scott County, 
when a comparatively young man walked into the 
clearing, clad in linsey, and asked Mr. Blotcher if he 
could speak to the wood choppers. Mr. Blotcher being 
a thrifty German, objected to having his men inter- 
rupted, but told the young man if he would wait until 
dinner time he could talk all he wished. The young 
man consented, took an ax and went into the wood 
with a vim. At dinner time he shared the lunch the 
men had with them, and passed the meal pleasantly. 

After dinner he made known unto them that he 
was Jonathan Jennings, a candidate for Governor. He 
made them an eloquent speech on the issues of the 
campaign, and at election day received the vote of 
every man in the company. Wm. Blotcher was ever 



THIRD GENERATION. 205 

afterward his devoted adherent. It was the Governor's 
habit to meet the people on equal footing. He would 
come upon them at their barn-raisings and log-rollings, 
and was the merriest one of them all. He got hold of 
the hearts of the people. 

His neighbors and friends were full of joy when 
the news of his election was received, and proposed to 
give him a grand inaugural ball at his introduction into 
office. The most commodious building at their com- 
mand was the Lone Tree Tavern, a building still stand- 
ing in Charleston. It was a stylish building in those 
days. There were three rooms on the first floor, and 
the portion above stairs was one large room, which 
contained cots for the lodgers. The committee secured 
this large room in which to hold the inaugural ball. 
Four fiddlers furnished the music, and Governor Jen- 
nings, clad in homespun and a swallow-tail coat, his 
beautiful wife on his arm, led the grand march with the 
grace of a knight. 

The dance continued far into the night. All went 
merry as a marriage bell, and the first inaugural ball 
was a grand success. The old tavern still remains 
standing, a relic of the past. 

Gov. Jennings always retained his residence on his 
farm, three miles west of Charleston. His house was 
built of hewn logs, and a long porch stood at its front. 
It was a story and a half high, and contained five 
rooms. Here the Governor lived in comfort. He was 
fond of raising fine stock, and was the first man to 
introduce clover seed into Indiana. He had it imported 
from England in 1832, and paid nearly forty dollars 
a bushel for it. 

His first wife died during his Governorship, and on 
the 19th of October, 1827, he was married to Miss 
Clarissa Barbee, of Kentucky, in the Lone Tree 
Tavern, where the inaugural ball had been held. His 
marriage license is now in the possession of M. P. 
Alpha, of Charleston. It was issued by John Carr, 
Clerk. The Rev. Reason R. Hammond performed the 



206 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

ceremony. They went immediately to the Governor's 
farm to reside. 

The Governor was the owner of a very large and 
intelligent Newfoundland dog that he called "Cash," 
for he had given the price of a farm for him. One day 
while he was playing with his pet in front of his house, 
two well-dressed Kentucky gentlemen rode up on their 
horses and asked if Governor Jennings was at home. 
"He is," said the Governor, who was dressed in the 
careless manner of a farm hand. "Well," said the men, 
"you take these horses to the stable and rub them down, 
and we'll go and see the Governor." And so saying, 
they went into the house. Mrs. Jennings received her 
guests with dignity. They were prominent politicians 
who had come to consult the Governor. 

Jennings had given the horses over to a servant as 
soon as the men were indoors, and hastened to the 
house. As he entered and was introduced, he said» 
with a merry twinkle in his eye, "Gentlemen, I have 
attended to your horses, now what can I do for you ?" 

His guests were dumfounded and embarrassed. 
They reab'-ed their blunder, and their efiorts to correct 
their error only increased the merriment of their 
amused host. 

Although Gov. Jennings was slovenly in his dress, 
yet he was a handsome man of commanding presence. 
His hair was light and his eyes were blue. He was a 
pleasing conversationalist, always polite and courteous. 
On the platform and stump he was a forceful and logical 
speaker, he was ready with his pen, and carried a per- 
sonality in public that few men possessed. He ever 
refused to bow to the dictations of the politicians, and 
whatever his faults may have been, his lectitude of 
character was unquestioned.

"Samuel Kennedy Jennings, son of Samuel Kennedy 
Jennings, A.M., M.D., D.D., was born in Virginia in 
1796. He moved to Baltimore, Md., at the age of twenty, 
where he commenced the stud)' of medicine under 
his father. There he married Miss Elizabeth Hood 
Owings. She lived scarcely a year,; had one child, 
which lived but a few months. He then moved to 
Alabama, where he commenced the practice of medi- 
cine. There he married Miss Sarah Murphy, daughter 
of Judge Wm. Murphy. He resided in Alabama quite 
a number of years, where he amassed a considerable 
fortune. From thence he moved to Austin, Texas. 
He was known but to be loved. He was one of God's 
noblest creation. The poor and the rich honored and 
revered him ; his ears were never closed to the cry of 
the poor. It is of these golden qualities I would 
speak. To know him as a brother of the great family 
of man, was indeed to love him. His heart was a deep 
fountain of affection, generosity and honor, gushing up 
with the most spontaneous sympathies, and the warm- 
est emotions of a manly nature. This magnificence of 
heart was the index to the character of his earthly man- 
hood. Wisdom dictated his life, and virtue sanctions 
its history. His mind was a store house of wisdom, and 
yet his heart was full of love and charity to his fellow man. 

He joined the M. E. Church when quite a young 
man, and was ever an humble follower of Jesus Christ. 
After residing in Texas some years, he moved to 
Tennessee. He was a very successful and eminent 
physician. No worship was ever more devoted than 
that which he brought to the shrine of his profession. 
He was never so exhausted as to close his ears and 
heart to the cry of the poor ; and when death came to 
claim its own, he surrendered as a great and noble war- 
rior should. He died in Jackson, Tenn., July 13, 1877. 
His devoted wife met him on the banks of the surgeless 
river, Nov. 16, 1879. After the lapse of years, his 
memory is fresh and green in the hearts of his children 
and many friends."

212 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

Rev. Jacob Mead Jennings, A.M., M.D. , was born 
in New London, Campbell County, Va., June 4, 1804, 
and died in Greenville, Ala., Oct. 1, 1872. His early- 
boyhood was spent in Lynchburg and Norfolk, Va. 
His father removed to Baltimore, Md., where Jacob 
received every educational advantage. He graduated 
with high honors at the University of Maryland, and 
then began the study of medicine at the Medical 
College of Baltimore, from which institution he received 
his diploma. Like his father and grand-father, he was 
a fine classical scholar; was also master of the French 
language. Soon after his graduation from the Medical 
College and his marriage, he went to Virginia, living 
for a while near the Peaks of Otter, and afterward in 
Smithfield, having in both places a large practice. Hav- 
ing been licensed to preach by the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, in 1827, he also ministered to the people in 
spiritual things. 

Ill health compelled him to relinquish his work, 
and he returned to Baltimore, where, after the restora- 
tion of health, he began the practice of his profession. 
He was at one time resident physician of the Marine 
Hospital, and was also connected with the medical de- 
partment of Washington University as lecturer on 
Medical Jurisprudence. 

Like his father, his work among the poor was a 
great work. Storm nor heat nor ill health never kept 
him from responding to the call of the needy. 

He left the M. E. Church and united with the 
Methodist Protestant Church, his father having been 
one of the organizers of that church. In 1849 he re- 
moved to Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he established the 
school which afterward became the Tuscaloosa 
Female College. He then united with the M. E. 
Church South,) and in 1853 joined the Alabama Confer- 
ence, serving different stations until the beginning of 
the Civil War, when he became Chaplain of the 3d 
Alabama Regt., and held that position until the sum- 



FOURTH GENERATION. 213 

mer of 1862, when failing health compelled him to re- 
turn home. He was in Richmond at the time when 
many battles were fought near that city, and he worked 
faithfully among the sick and wounded in the crowded 
hospitals, both as physician and minister. 

His intellect was of a high order and was cultivated 
by home and collegiate training and extensive reading. 
He was a brilliant writer, and contributed to many 
magazines and papers. The last few weeks of his life 
were given to editing a paper published in Greenville, 
Ala. He was an eloquent speaker, rising often to the 
regions of the sublime ; he was gifted with rare conver- 
sational powers, and to the day of his death was an eager 
student, thirsting always for more knowledge. His talent 
and love of music were great, his voice was fine and well 
cultivated, and he played upon diflferent instruments. 
No matter how busy or how tired he was, some time of the 
twenty-four hours was given to music. It raised him 
above the every-day duties and trials of life, rested him, 
refreshed him. He almost literally died upon his 
knees, for he was praying with his family when 
stricken with paralysis. He lived for three days, then 
gently breathed his last and "went home," leaving to 
wife and children the rich legacy of a noble and well 
spent life.

Samuel Carnahan Jennings was the son of 
Kbenezer and Mercy Chidester Jennings, and was born 
near Burgettstown, Washington Co., Pa., Feb, 19, 1803. 
Left an orphan at the age of five years, he was taken 
under the care of Rev. Jacob Jennings, M. D., of Dun- 
lap's Creek, Pa. ,where he spent his boyhood. In 1818 he 
went to Washington, Pa., to enter the preparatory 
department of the college there. In 1819 he entered the 
academy at Steubenville, O., where his uncle, Rev. 
Obadiah Jennings, D. D., was pastor, and with whose 
church he united April 20, 1820. In May, 1820, he 
became a student of Jefferson College, Canonsburgh, 
Pa., graduating in the spring of 1823. Then he visited 
his sister, Mrs. Mercer, at Cleveland, O. , at that time a 
village of 800 inhabitants. While there he received an 
offer to become principal of the academy, and taught all 
the youth of the town with the exception of the 
smaller scholars. 

In 1824 he entered Princeton Seminary, N. J., and 
was licensed to preach the gospel by the Presbytery of 
New Brunswick, February, 1827, graduating also at the 
seminary the same year. On leaving Princeton he 
became an agent for the American Bible Society, and 
formed in Ohio some thirty-nine societies for the circu- 
lation of the Word of God. In 1828 he became the 
stated supply of the First Church of Washington, Pa., 



216 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

where his ministry was greatly blessed by a continuous 
revival through eight or nine months resulting in the 
accession of some eighty persons to the membership of 
the Church. 

In 1829 he became editor of the Christian Herald^ 
the predecessor of the Presbyterian Banner. On June 24 
1829, he became pastor of the Sharon Church, and in 
1830 pastor of the Mt. Pisgah Church. On June 7th, 
1831, he was married to Miss Emma Marie Wilhelmina, 
the daughter of Philip L. and Zelie Passavant, of 
Zelienople, Pa. In 1832 he relinquished the Christian 
Herald^ though still continuing the publicatron of the 
Presbyterian Preacher for five years and two other 
small volumes. In 1837 he opened a female seminary, 
near the City of Pittsburgh. In 1842 he organized the 
Temperanceville, now the 8th Presbyterian Church, of 
Pittsburgh, Pa., and also as the result of his labors, a 
revival on Neville Island led to the organization of a 
church and the erection of a house of worship there. 
Having in 1846 four organized congregations under his 
care, it became evident that his pastoral charge was too 
large, accordingly he accepted calls from Sharon and 
Neville Island congregations for all his time and re- 
moved from Temperanceville to Moon Township, near 
Sharon Church, April, 1848. 

In 1857 he resigned the church on Neville Island to 
take charge of the Valley Church in connection with 
Sharon, and in 1867 became pastor of Sharon for all 
Ibis time. During this year an extensive revival began, 
that resulted in the ingathering of one hundred and 
eleven persons into the communion of the church. In 
June, 1879, he resigned the pastorate of Sharon church, 
after fifty years of continuous labor in that field, in 
connection with the other fields named. After his 
resignation he became, for two years, stated supply of 
the Riverdale Church, Shousetown, Pa., preaching also 
for his brethern and writing for the religious papers, as 
opportunity afforded. 

Dr. Jennings as a preacher was plain, practical, 



^/4 




Mrs. Emma M. W. i Passavant' Jennings. 



FOURTH GENERATION. 217 

scriptural and forcible. In labors he was more abund- 
ant, having an extensive field, earnest to do his Master's 
Will, speaking with ease and having his knowledge at 
ready command. He generally preached on the Sabbath 
during Summer thrice and sometimes even four times 
and at all times as occasion afforded, in the homes of 
the sick and the aged. Possessed of a sympathetic 
nature, of some inherited taste and acquired knowledge 
of medicine, he frequently ministered to the diseases of 
the body as well as those of the mind and in this respect, 
also, his services were often sought and much appreci- 
ated. 

During his ministry of fifty-seven years he performed 
an immense amount of pastoral work, and he was 
highly esteemed by his people, and his name was held 
in grateful rememberance. He was deeply interested 
in the progress of missions. He was an ardent advocate 
of the temperance cause and was strongly opposed to 
human slavery. He several times represented his 
presbytery on the floor of the General Assembly, was 
chosen Moderator of the Synod of Pittsburgh* and 
received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from his Alma 
Mater, Jefferson College, at Cannousburg, Pa. 

After an attack ofcerebrohemorrhages,lasting four 
days, he died Oct. 10, 1885, and now his remains repose 
in Sharon Cemetery, in the midst of many of the people 
to whom he preached and for whom he labored. His 
monument bears the fitting inscription : 

"They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firma- 
ment ; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for- 
ever and ever."— Dan. 12 : 3. 

Mrs. Emma Marie Wilhelmina Passavant Jennings 
was born at Zelienople, Pa., March 2, 1811, and was the 
daughter of Philip Louis and Zelie Basse Passavant. 

The Passavant family were of Huguenot extraction, 
who left France in 1594, and settled first in Switzerland, 
and afterwards a branch of the same family went to 
Germany. From this latter branch the parents of Mrs. 



218 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

Jennings were descended, and they came from Frank- 
fort-on-the-Main to Zelienople, in 1807. 

Mrs. Jennings was carefully trained in her early 
years by an intelligent and accomplished mother, and 
received further education at the school of the Misses 
Turnbull, Baltimore, Md. She was confirmed in the 
German Lutheran Church at Zelienople, Pa., and after 
her marriage to Dr. Jennings, June 7, 1831, her mem- 
bership was transferred to the Presbyterian Church. 

She was possessed of good health and a vigorous 
constitution, of good judgment also, having a well bal- 
anced and symmetrical mind. 

She was an ideal minister's wife — active, industrious, 
prudent, careful and economical. She was a most 
worthy companion and fitting helper to her husband. 
Earnest in doing good, interested in the welfare of 
others, kind and sympathetic toward the needy and the 
suffering, she was greatly beloved by the congregations 
where she lived. 

Cheerful, amiable and unselfish, she was the light 
and joy of her home circle, and her children will ever 
hold her in blessed remembrance. Her views of 
religion were clear, her faith was strong, her piety was 
simple, her patience was marked, her charity was 
abundant, her sincerity was unquestioned, and her 
whole Christian character through grace was beautiful. 
With regard to furthering the advancement of her Re- 
deemer's kingdom, it may be said of her, "She hath 
done what she could," and her work will ever follow 
her and brighten her eternal reward. 

She died from the effects of a fall, in which her left 
limb was fractured, and after much suffering entered 
'*the rest that remainethfor the people of God," May 12, 
1888. Her earthly tabernacle reposes beside that of 
her husband in the Sharon Church Cemetery. She 
was the beloved mother of six children, all of whom 
survived her.

Jacob Jennings was the youngest child and son of 
Dr. Ebenezer and Mercy {Chidester) Jennings, and was 
born January 25, 1805, near Burgettstown, Washington 
Connty, Pa. 

Left an orphan at a very early age (between three 
and ft>ur years), he was taken under the care of kindred 
friends whom his father designated, becoming, probably, 
a member of the family of his maternal grandmother 
Chidester. 

At the age of ten he was placed under the care of 
his uncle, Hon. Jonathan Jennings, of Indiana. He 
graduated with honor at Washington College in \ 826, 
studied law with his uncle, already mentioned, and 
was admitted to the practice of law in the state of 
Indiana. He had flattering prospects of success in his 
profession, but "Death who loves to blast life's fairest 
vision," marked him for its victim. Sitting up many 
nights attending on the sick when an epidemic pre- 
vailed, brought on a pulmonary affection. Though not 
at that time borne up with Christian hope, yet the 
prayers of a father and mother, offered when he was a 
child, were answered. After weeks of special convic- 
tion, God, in His great mercy, gave him a most remark- 
able deliverance, and enabled him to rejoice in the Lord 
Jesus as his Saviour. He peacefully fell asleep at the 
home of his brother. Rev. S. C. Jennings, near Pitts- 
burg, Pa., Feb. 22, 1832, being twenty-seven years of 
age, and was buried beside his parents' sleeping dust at 
Cross Creek, Pa.

law, was admitted to the bar in Winchester, Va. , in 
1828, and settled in that year in Nashville, Tenn., but 
in 1830 returned to Accomack. In 1833 he was elected 
to congress by the the Jackson party, and after the 
election fought a duel with his competitor for the of- 
fice. He was twice re-elected. In congress he went 
over to the opposition on the development of Jackson's 
bank policy, and took strong ground in favor of slavery. 



222 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

In 1857 he was second to William J. Graves, of Ken- 
tucky, in his duel with Jonathan Cilley, of Maine, in 
which the latter was killed. He was a man of un- 
doubted ability, and had great influence in John Tyler's 
administration, and, says John W. Forney, 'Standing 
between the two great parties in the house, he delighted 
in his isolation and rioted in the eccentricities of his 
genius.' In 1842 the senate rejected the nomination 
of Mr. Wise as Minister to France, but he was subse- 
quently appointed Minister to Brazil, and resided at 
Rio Janeiro from May, 1844, till October, 1847, In 
1848 and 1852 he supported the democratic candidates 
for president. He was elected Governor of Virginia in 
1855, after a very vigorous canvass, directed especially 
against the * Know-Nothings,' whose progress he did 
much to check by his vigorous oratory. His success, 
which overturned the calculations of many political 
prophets, was due in part to his accusation that the 
.* Know - Nothings ' were Abolitionists in disguise. 
Toward the close of his term occurred the seizure of 
Harper's Ferry by John Brown, whose execution on 2 
Dec, 1859, was one of the last acts of his administra- 
tion. (See Brown, John). In February, 1861, he was 
a member of the State convention, in which, from the 
committee on federal relations, he made a report that 
aimed at compromise, and a peaceful adjustment 
with the seceded states. After the secession of Virginia 
he was appointed Brigadier General in the Confederate 
Army. His force was driven out of Kanawha Valley 
by the National Troops under Gen. Jacob D. Cox, and 
at Gauley Bridge lost a large quantity of arms and 
stores. Subsequently he commanded at Roanoke 
Island, N. C, where his forces were defeated by Gen. 
Ambrose E. Burnside's expedition, his son, Obadiah J, 
Wise, being among the killed. After the war he 
resumed the practice of his profession. He published 
' Seven Decades of the Union ; Memoir of John Tyler' 
(Philadelphia, 1872)."-[Appleton's Cyclopedia of Ameri-

Col. George Campbell Childress, at the time of his 
marriage with Rebecca Stuart Read Jennings, was a 
widower. He was a son of Hon. John Childress, one 
of the judges of Tennessee, whose family consisted of 
five sons and five daughters. Four of the daughters 
were wives of judges, one being the wife of Judge John 
Catron, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the 
United States. Mrs. James K. Polk was a cousin of 
Col. Childress. 

Col. Childress was a member of the Bar of 
Tennessee, and especially noted in criminal cases. He 
was on terms of intimate friendship with Andrew Jack- 
son when President of the United States, who at one 



224 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

time offered to name him for Attorney General of the 
United States. 

The mother of Col. Childress was a daughter of 
General James Robertson, the founder of Nashville, 
Tennessee . 

Some of the uncles and brothers of Col. Childress 
settled in Texas when it was a province of Mexico. 

It was their influence, together with a large num- 
ber of other friends, who went from Nashville to Texas 
at that time, that led Col. Childress to cast in his lot 
among them in that state. 

He interested himself there at once in all the plans 
and efforts intended to promote the unity of the people 
for engaging in an earnest struggle for independence, 
and was a member of the convention which, in 1836, 
met to make a declaration of the independence of 
Texas. His name appears not only as one of the sign- 
ers to the declaration which was adopted by that con- 
vention, but also as one of the committee which drafted 
the declaration for presentation to the convention for 
its adoption. 

After Texas had achieved its independence Col. 
Childress returned to Nashville, Tenn., where he mar- 
ried his second wife (Rebecca Stuart Read Jennings) in 
1842. About 1844 he went again to Texas, his inten- 
tion then was to remove his family there to reside per- 
manently, but soon after he was stricken with fever and 
died very suddenly at Galveston. His death was a 
severe shock to his wife ; her decline was quite rapid. 
Hoping that the milder climate of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, 
would benefit her, she decided to go there. The change 
brought no relief and she died there in the care of her 
uncle. Dr. Samuel K. Jennings, at the house of her 
daughter, Mrs. Marrast, December 16, 1847. Before 
she left Nashville for the south she gave to each of her 
two young daughters a Bible as a last parting gift to 
them and a memento of her love ; in each her name as 
the affectionate donor was written by herself.

Jonathan Gilmore Jennings, youngest son of David 
Jennings, was born April 28, 1822, at St. Clairsville, 
Ohio. His education was received at the " Old 
Institute,'' and he was a class-mate of Senator Rush 
Cowen. He studied law for a time, and later learned 
the saddler's trade with his brother, Jacob Daily 
Jennings. 

In 1844 Jonathan Gilmore Jennings removed to 
Bridgeport, Ohio, where he formed a partnership in the 
leather business with David Streiline. All the products 
of the firm were hauled across the mountains to Phila- 
delphia, where they met with a ready market. Streiline 
eventually proved himself a rascal by decamping with 
the horses, wagons and greater part of the stock of 
goods. 

On June 2, 1846, Mr. Jennings married Sarah Jane 
Taggart, eldest daughter of Joseph Taggart, of St. 
Clairsville. This ceremony was a double one. Charles 
H. Arrick and Margaret Eliza Collins being married 
at the same time. The Rev. Mr. J. Alexander 
officiated. 

After the flight of his dishonest partner in business, 
Mr. Jennings returned to St. Clairsville and opened a 
dry goods store. A few years later, hearing of the 
wonderful gold discoveries in the west, he disposed of 



FOURTH GENERATION. 229 

his Stock of goods and determined to start for Pike's 
Peak. The Central Ohio R. R. (now B. & O). had just 
been completed as far as Columbus, and he went to 
Bellaire to make arrangements for the first stage of his 
long journey to the El Dorado. While at Bellaire, 
the railroad officials offered him a position with the 
road and he accepted, remaining with them for many- 
years. 

In 1895 Mr. Jennings removed to Gas City, Ind., 
where he now resides with his daughter, Theresa 
Murray. 

The following is clipped from a Gas City paper of 
1895: 

"Last Sunday was the seventy-third birthday anniversary of 
Jonathan Jennings, who lives with his daughter, Mrs. C A. Mur- 
ray, on South B Street. Mr. Jennings has recently moved to 
Gas City from Bellaire, Ohio. His grandfather was Captain Jacob 
Jennings, who did valiant service in the War of the Revolution. 
His father settled near Bellaire about 1812 and was one of the 
most prominent citizens in that part of the state. His uncle, 
Jonathan Jennings, after whom Mr. Jennings was named, was 
the first territorial governor of Indiana. 

"Mr. Jennings has always lived near Bellaire until his 
removal a few weeks ago, with his daughter, to Gas City. For 
forty years he was a well-known citizen of Bellaire. He is a man 
of bright mind, ready wit, and amiable disposition. His mental 
faculties are well preserved, and excepting that he is somewhat 
deaf, he still enjoys to a good degree the use of his physical 
faculties."

Frederick Plumer Hobson was a man of excep- 
tional character ; he combined the gentleness of a wo- 
man with great firmness and courage. He had a strong, 
clear mind with a remarkable insight into human 
nature He had chosen the law as a profession, but early 
indications of consumption made it necessary to live 
an active life in the country. He became an excellent 
farmer and managed a large Virginia estate with judg- 



FIFTH GENERATION. 245 

ment and success. No kinder, wiser master could be 
found. His patience and self-denial during ten years of 
struggle with a fatal disease, and perfect resignation to 
the will of God, was an inspiration to others. He was 
named after Rev. Dr. Plumer, the distinguished Pres- 
byterian divine. 

Mrs. Annie J. W. Hobson (she was baptized Ann, 
but always called Annie) is the last surviving child of 
Gov. Henry A. and Elizabeth {Jennings) Wise. When 
she was but four years old, her father married his sec- 
ond wife, Mrs. Sergeant, who was a self-sacrificing and 
true mother to them all, dying when Annie was thirteen 
years of age. Her father married in 1854 his third wife, 
a Miss Lyons, of Richmond, Va., a good, lovely woman 
of suitable age, and who has always been loved and 
cherished as a mother, and who at the present time 
(1899) is living with Mrs. Hobson. 

Thelife of Annie Jennings Hobson is a theme we can- 
not reach. In its manifestation to the world, it has been 
marked by no extraordinary deeds ; but in cheerfully 
accepting the gravest reponsibilities of imperious duties 
and in the sublime Christian fortitude and submission 
under many and severe trials hardly to be borne, she 
lived a life too sacred for our pen to discuss. As daugh- 
ter, wife and mother, she has exemplified the nobility 
of woman, and after a life of unceasing vicissitudes, she 
is still charitably meeting the obligations which the 
misfortunes of others have imposed upon her. As a com- 
mentary on her life and praise of her motives, we can- 
not do better than to quote her own words: "God has 
led me through the fiery path of trial and the dark 
waters of bereavement, but He has never forsaken me ; 
but has given me grace always to say: 'Thy will be 
done.' 'God is too wise to err, too loving to be unkind.' '* 

Mrs. Hobson now resides at Ashland, Hanover 
Co., Va.

FIFTH GENERATION. 247 

William Dexter Dowe was a son of Stephen Dowe, 
of Landgrove Vt., a son of Stephen Dowe, (by Abigail 
Jewett) of Hollis, New Hampshire, son of Capt. Reuben 
Dowe, (by Lydia Jones), who purchased in Hollis, 
about the year 1730, the tract of original forest, which 
they improved as a homestead, where they afterwards 
lived and died. Their children and grand-children 
were born there, and it is still owned by a representa- 
tive of the family. 

Capt Reuben Dowe held a lieutenant's commission 
in a company of New Hampshire troops, who took part 
in the expedition against Ticonderoga in the French 
and Indian War. He was captain of a company in Col. 
Prescott's regiment, which occupied Breed's Hill on the 
night of June 16, 1775, and took part in the battle of 
the next day. He was the last of his company in leav- 
ing the fortifications, and received a ball in his ankle, a 
lasting memento from George III, which made him a 
cripple for life. This bullet was taken from his ankle 
that day, at the hospital in Cambridge, and was carefully 
kept by him the remainder of his life, and at its close 
he passed it over to his sons. It has been preserved as 
a souvenir by the family. 

The first ancestor of- this family, who settled in 
Massachusetts, came over from England prior to 1637, 
His name appears in the records of Essex County among 
the charter corporators of the town of Newburyport. 

The Jewetts were all of Scotch and the Joneses of 
Welsh ancestry, 

Mehetabel Hall, mother Mr. Dowe, was de- 
scended, through her father, from the earliest settlers of 
New England, who came over to these shores soon 
after the Pilgrims settled at Plymouth. Simon Wil- 
lard and his sister Margery, who was her ancester, came 
in the same ship. Rev. Willard Hall, the first minis- 
ter of the Congregational Church, at Westford, Mass,, 
and for fifty- two years, from 1727, was her grand-father. 
She was born in Westford, being the daughter of Willis 
Hall and Mehetabel {Poole) Hall. 



248 DESCENDANTS OF JACOB 

Mr, Dowe graduated at Dartmouth College in 1855. 
He afterwards read law in Delaware, and was admitted 
to the bar in that state in 1859. For a time he practiced 
his profession in St. Louis, Mo.; also in Macoupin 
County, 111. 

In 1862 he received an invitation from the Hon. 
Daniel M. Bates, in whose office he had read law in 
Wilmington, Delaware, to return to Delaware and enter 
into a partnership with him in the practice of law. 
This arrangement was made, and the firm of Bates 
& Dowe, attorneys at-law, was pleasantly continued 
until the appointment of Mr. Bates as Chancellor of the 
State of Delaware. The acceptance of the office of 
Chancellor, dissolved the firm of Bates & Dowe in 1864.

SIXTH GENERATION. 263 

Henry Wise Hobson was born in Goochland 
County, Va., on his father's estate of Eastwood, July 9, 
1858. He displayed early in life unusual ability and 
character. He rose rapidly in his profession as a 
Lawyer. He commenced the practice of law in Rich- 
mond in his uncle's oflEice, Hon. John S. Wise, now of 
New York. In a short time was taken as a partner. 
In 1881 he went to Colorado and settled in BuenaVista, 
and succeeded so well that in 1884 he settled in Denver. 
He had scarcely been there a year when President 
Cleveland appointed him U. S. District Attorney. Later 
on Cleveland appointed him, also, District Attorney for 
two other states and a territory. He was the youngest 
District Attorney in the United States at the time of 
his first appointment. He was General Counsel and 
Receiver for the Union Pacific & Denver & Gulf Rail- 
road ; also for the Denver, Leadville & Gannison R. R. 
His greatest work was the International Trust Co., 
of Denver, which he organized in 1891. It is univer- 
sally conceded that his energy, ability and judicious 
management carried it through the money crises, which 
have seen the failure of so many undertakings in Col- 
orado. 

"Though young at the time of his death, he had at- 
tained a high position at the bar, and in the business 
world and in all walks of life, men looked to him for 
advice and guidance. His place cannot easily be filled 
in business and profession circles.'' — Quoted from a 
Denver paper. 

He married at Fitzburg, New York, Mrs. Kather- 
ine {Thayer) Germain, Rev. J. C. Hobson, of the Epis- 
copal Church, ofiiciating, assisted by the Rev. Mr. 
Addison. He died August 13, 1898, at the Roosevelt 
Hospital, New York City, from appendicitis. He is 
buried in the Oakwood Cemetery, of Troy, in the 
Thayer burial section.

As a history of John Crawford and his times, we 
present the following story as it was published in the 
Waynesburg Republican^ Jan. 6, 1898. The story is 
from the pen of Jennings Crawford (1506), and besides 
the story of adventure, and the side light thrown on 
pioneer days, it discloses the friendship of two rough, 
rugged scouts, and shows the reason why the given 
name, John Lynn, is continued through the families 
descended from John Crawford : 

Reminiscences of Olden Times — Surprise of the Scouts. 

By Jennings Crawford. 

In the fall of the year 1791 a report was by some means put 
into circulation in the frontier settlements of Western Pennsyl- 
vania and Virginia, that the hostile Indians who had been very 
troublesome to those settlements for some years, were about to 



THIRD GENERATION. 275 

leave the Sandusky towns and retire to the Wabash country for 
winter quarters, 

It was a matter of great importance to the settlements to 
ascertain whether or not this report was true. If true, they would 
be relieved, at least for a time, fiom the necessity of a sleepless 
vigilance in order to guard against their bloody inroads. If lalse, 
they would understand and be prepared for the necessities of the 
hour. 

The oflEieers in command at Fort Wheeling detailed eight 
men from the class of soldiers then in the U. S. service, called 
spies or scouts, to perform this service. It was a mission of great 
danger, but these young men were presumed to be fitted for just 
such work. 

, The names of these men, so far as I am able to call them to 
mind, were Jacob Wetzel (brother to Lewis,) George Brown, of 
Whitely, Greene Co., Pa., John Lynn, Redstone, Fayette Co., 
Pa., John Crawford (my father). Muddy Creek, Greene Co., Pa., 
Thomas Biggs and Wm. McCuUoch. The names of the other two 
I can not recall. The party started from Fort Wheeling in the 
month of December, in the direction of the Sandusky towns. The 
trail through the unbroken forest crossed the Muskingum River 
at or below where Coshocton now stands, then through the Tomica 
region on the waters of Owl Creek, passing near the spot where 
now stands the city of Mt. Vernon. 

After proceeding cautiously on this route to a point some- 
where in the Owl Creek Valley, they became satisfied that the 
Indians were in the country ; that the report that they had gone 
off to the Wabash was false. 

Moreover some of the party ( my father of the number ) be- 
lieved that they (the scouts) had been discovered by the Indians, 
and that the greatest caution would be necessary to prevent a 
surprise. 

The object of the mission having been attained, the party now 
turned their faces homeward, and, as it afterward turned out, 
were stealthily followed by a party of Indians. 

When night came on they had reached a point in the hilly 
region of Tomica, about ten miles west of the Muskingum River. 
The weather was very cold but no snow on the ground. 

They selected a secluded spot in a deep ravine for their camp- 
ing ground. There was a division among the men as to whether 
they should have fire. Those who believed that the Indians had 
discovered them opposed it, but was overruled by the majority. 
A fire was made. 

The regulations for watching and being relieved in order were 
duly attended to. 

My father's watch came in the first part of the night. 



276 DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN 

He described the night as being very still, the moon shining 
bright, the weather so cold that the trees were cracking with the 
frost, and the ground frozen hard. 

He thought it would be impossible for an Indian to get with- 
in a hundred yards of the camp without being discovered. 

The men, excepting the one on guard for the time being, sur- 
rounded the camp fire with their guns in their arms, lying with 
their feet to the fire and their heads most remote from it. 

About three o'clock in the morning the man on guard (as he 
afterward stated), after watching for some time, turned around to 
the light of the fire to take something from his knapsack, when 
the Indians, having with astonishing adroitness crept up on every 
side, within some fifteen or twenty yards, fired into the camp of 
sleeping men. 

Two naen were killed on the spot and a third one wounded. 

Those who escaped this deadly volley, sprang up and ran for 
their lives. My father, after running along the ravine some 
distance and then up a side hill, ventured to look back, and saw, 
by the light of the moon, at the foot of the hill, a few yards below, 
a squad of men. In a few moments there was a slight report of a 
gun, and he ran on. It seems that the wounded man, after run- 
ning as far as this spot, was overtaken by some of the Indians and 
turned to defend himself with his tomahawk. The Indians, not 
caring to engage in a hand to hand fight, and their guns having all 
been discharged at the first fire, had stopped long enough to load 
a gun to shoot the poor man down. 

Five of the men were unhurt and escaped from the Indians, 
but some had lost their moccasins and all their blankets and knap- 
sacks. Ninety miles through a howling wilderness were to be 
traveled before they could reach Wheeling Fort. There seemed 
reason to fear that the Indians might still be following up their 
trail, so that to shoot game was unsafe and they had no other 
means of procuring food. 

Their hunger was added to the other difficulties and perils 
still surrounding them. After three days of toil and suflTering the 
five men reached the Fort, in two parties, one of two and the 
other of three, neither of them having any knowledge of the 
other until they came in. Those of them who had lost their 
moccasins at the surprise, got their feet badly frozen. 

After a few days rest, and doctoring up their frozen feet, the 
boys determined to make a trip out to the Wakitomica country, 
as it was then called, in search of their three lost comrades, of 
whose fate they were yet not certain, though they believed they 
were killed. 

Procuring some horses to ride, they made their way to the 
spot where the party had been surprised, and found the bodies of 



THIRD GENERATION. 277 

the three men, two at the camp where they had slept, and the 
other at the place where my father looking down the hill saw the 
squad of men at its foot. His wounds indicated that he had been 
shot a second time. 

They hurried their companions in the best manner they 
could near the spot where they fell. 

I aru not able, at this late day, to state the names of two of 
the men who were killed. But as to the third one, there is a little 
bit of romance connected with it, (romance in real life, by the 
way,) which I trust will cause it to be remembered by all the 
Crawford connection for at least a generation or two yet to come. 

John Lynn, (one of the men killed) and John Crawford (my 
father), were bosom friends. They entered the U. S. service, as 
scouts at the same time, each being about eighteen years old. 
They made an agreement at the outset, that in case either one 
should fall during the war, and the other survive, and have a son, 
that son should bear the name of the fallen comrade. 

John Lynn was shot through the heart while lying under the 
same blanket with John Crawford in that awful night surprise 
which 1 have been trying to describe. 

The defeat of the Indians by General Wayne on the Maumee, 
in August, 1794, put an end to the war. There was no further 
need for the scouts, and they returned to the pursuits of peaceful 
life. 

John Crawford and Salome Jennings were married April 2, 
1801. A son was born to them May 31st, 1802, 

That son was named John Lynn Crawford, in accordance 
with the sacred pledge made twelve years before. 

This scrap of history as to the origin of the name, with its 
hallowed associations, will, I think, be accepted by all relatives 
as a precious memorial. To some of the younger portion of them 
ii will perhaps be new. 

I have met in past years several stories or narratives evidently 
founded upon the real historic events which I have narrated above, 
but connected with so much of mere fiction as to render them in- 
credible and worthless. . 

All the statemeiits I have made above may be relied upon a^ 
substantially true. They come from the lips of one of the princi- 
ple actors, whose veracity was never called in question.

*The Magazine of Western History^ published at 
Cleveland, Ohio, commenced giving biographical 
sketches of some of the leading men of Pittsburgh — 
manufacturers and other prominent business men with- 
in the last half ceutury. In this list we find our old 
friend and relative, John F. Jennings, now living on 
Lincoln Avenue, Allegheny city, in the eightieth year 
of his age. As Mr. Jennings is a native of this place, 
and having been very extensively known throughout 
the county, fifty odd years ago, we have taken the 
liberty of borrowing from the March number, 1886, of 
the Magazine^ the following sketch of his business life, 
especially after he became an active worker in the 
great industrial hive of the State ; we fully and cheer- 
fully endorse all that the Magazine says of our old 
friend, and we hope it will be read with appreciation 
and pleasure by hundreds of our older citizens who still 
remember Mr. Jennings when a young man in their 
midst. The enterprise, self reliance and strict business 
integrity of Mr. Jennings were crowned with their 
natural and legitimate results, in the acquisition of en-

larged wealth. His whole life has been a worthy 
example to the young men of the country who have 
their own way to make in the world. But read what 
the Magazine of Western History truthfully says of the 
subject of this sketch. 

After considerable solicitation on our part, Mr. 
Jennings consented to our printing the following notice, 
when some other members of his family sent us the 
above electrotype likeness of that gentleman, which is 
a most excellent one. 

JOHN F. JENNINGS. 

The men who laid the foundations of manufactur- 
ing and commercial strength on which Pittsburgh has 
been built, are rapidly passing away, and those who re- 
main should be made to feel that the new generation 
has an appreciation of the past, and is willing to give a 
full meed of praise where it is due, John F. Jennings 
was one of this hard-working body of pioneers, and he 
has well earned the comfort and ease in which his de- 
clining years are being spent. His life has been a 
useful and busy one. He was born in Waynesburg, 
Greene County, Pennsylvania, on October 28, 1807. 
His ancestors came originally from New Jersey. His 
maternal grandfather, John Flenniken, while a native 
of Pennsylvania, was for many years a citizen of North 
Carolina, where he remained all through the Revolution- 
ary War, serving gallantly as a member of that band 
that has passed into history as " General Marion's 
minute men." He was a delegate to the Mechlenburgh 
convention, which adopted the famous "Mechlenburgh 
Declaration of Independence '' of 1775, and was one of 
the signers of that immortal paper. He was a man of 
high standing, and of great influence in the south. 
When the war was over, his wife having in the mean- 
time died, he returned to Pennsylvania, bringing with 
him two children, a son and daughter, the latter being 
afterwards the wife of Benjamin Jennings, and mother 
to the subject of this sketch. On Mr. Flenniken's 
return to the North he was appointed one of the first 



286 DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN 

associate judges of Greene County, and served with 
honor and faithfulness in that position. 

Mr. Jennings' paternal grandfather, Jacob Jennings, 
settled on the west side of the Monongahela river on a 
farm. The son, Benjamin Jennings, while yet a minor, 
learned the trade of a carpenter, and went to Waynes- 
burg, the seat of Greene County, which had previously 
been divided from Washington County. The town did 
not at that time contain a dozen houses. He assisted 
in building the first court house in the county. It was 
constructed of hewed logs, and within it the courts 
were held until a new brick house, a very elegant one 
for the time, was erected. It included all the offices 
needed to carry on the public business, and also a very 
•necessary appendage in the back woods of those days, 
a jail. The county was named after General Greene, 
the bosom friend and military companion of Generals 
Washington and LaFayette — and thus Pennsylvania 
honors these three Revolutionary heroes by naming 
after them three counties that touch on each other — 
Washington, Fayette and Greene. 

When Benjamin Jennings was married he brought 
his wife to Waynesburg, but could find no house to live 
in save a small one of logs that stood on the farm on 
which the town was laid out. He had bought two lots 
on Main street, and was soon engaged in building two 
frame houses, a portion of the timber therein being cut 
from the main street of the town, and the remainder on 
what is now called the park, but was then known as the 
commons. The subject of this sketch was born during 
the progress of this work, in the little log house that 
stood on what is now Greene street. The building has 
only been demolished during the last three years, to 
make room for the progress of improvements in that 
enterprising town. 

Mr. Jennings' childhood and youth did not differ 
from that of the great majority of children. When he 
was about fifteen years of age he served for a time in a 
village store, but in a few months entered a printing 



FOURTH GENERATION. 287 

office to learn the printer's trade. As his opportunities 
for an education had been very meagre, he earnestly 
applied himself to study, attending a grammar class at 
night, and becoming an expert in that difficult science. 
After completing his trade he was offered a position in 
the largest general store of the town, and accepted. He 
remained there nearly three years, receiving the rudi- 
ments of a business education, which served him a good 
purpose in after life. By reason of close confinement 
his health began to fail, and he concluded to leave the 
store and go back to his trade. In 1830 he went to 
Ohio, and in St. Clairsville found an old office mate, 
who bad learned his trade by his side, and who was 
none other than Colonel George W. Manypenny, who 
afterwards became a distinguished citizen of Ohio, and 
held many important positions, state and national. Mr. 
Manypenny had just bought a newspaper, and he 
wished Mr. Jennings toremain with him until he should 
get his establishment in fair running shape. He did so, 
and was there one year, when he went to Columbus and 
entered an office where he gave part of his time to his 
trade and a part to reporting the proceedings of the 
general assembly. Mr. Jennings had one advantage 
over the majority of his craft. Having learned his trade 
in a country office, he was taught all branches of the 
business, while the rest, as a general thing, understood 
but one branch. He could turn his hand to all forms 
of office work. There were no steam presses in those 
days, and there were but two men in the office who 
could run a hand press at all, and Mr. Jennings was one 
of them, and as he was an expert therein he was soon 
materially advanced in the matter of wages. He had 
made himself useful in so many ways, and had worked 
with such industry and intelligent understanding of 
what was required of him, that when he decided to leave 
he was offered the foremanship if he would remain. But 
he had other purposes in view and declined. He 
returned to St. Clairsville, where he worked until the 
next spring, and in 1833 removed to Pittsburgh, with 



288 DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN 

forty-five dollars in his pocket, the sum of his worldly 
wealth, where he followed his trade, and in 1835 became 
foreman of one of the ofiices. 

In February or March, 1837, Mr. Jennings was 
oflfered the position of book-keeper and general manager 
of the Eagle Cotton Works, one of the largest factories 
in Allegheny, where all the factories of that section 
were located, and doing an immense business. Today 
there is not one in operation. The machinery and bus- 
iness of the Eagle Mill have been removed to Madison, 
Indiana. The grounds and buildings in Allegheny 
have recently been sold to be diverted to other pur- 
poses. Mr. Jennings remained with the Eagle six 
years. In the spring of 1843 he went into the whole- 
sale grocery and produce business in connection with 
James W. Hailman and John R. Blaine, under the firm 
name of Hailman, Jennings & Company. They laid 
good foundations and were commencing to build up a 
large business, when they were overtaken by the great 
fire of 1845, and utterly ruined, losing not only what 
they had, but being left several thousand dollars in 
debt. The fire swept away two-thirds of the business 
portion of the city, and would have crushed a place 
where the spirit of enterprise and progress was not as 
great as it has ever been in Pittsburgh, During the 
winter of that year, Mr. Hailman and Mr. Jennings 
entered into partnership with William Coleman and 
Samuel H. Hartman for the purpose of manufacturing 
steel. Blister steel was the only kind then attempted 
in Pittsburgh, and the spring steel was made from the ' 
blister. Mr. Jennings remained only one year with 
that firm ; matters connected with the business did not 
run smoothly, but caused the development of consider- 
able friction. He offered to sell his interest, and as 
some money had been made he was able to dispose of 
it at a good figure to a banking house. This not only 
enabled him to pay his proportion of the debt and stand 
financially square with the world once more, but left 
him a small capital in addition. , 



FOURTH GENERATION. 289 

The time was one of development and advance in 
the steel business ; the product was about to be applied 
to a new use, and there was not a mill in Pittsburgh 
prepared to make it. On his retirement from the above 
named j&rm, Mr. Jennings set about raising a company 
for the manufacture of steel, aufi several other articles 
that were the product of steel — spring steel, carriage 
and buggy springs, plow steel, etc. There had sprung 
up a great demand for steel plows, but no one had been 
able to furnish the steel. He succeeded in raising a 
good company that, before getting into operation, 
underwent some modification, and that was eventually 
composed of the following gentlemen : A. M. Walling- 
ford, John F. Singer,W. K. Nimick, Alexander Nimick, 
John F. Jennings, Samuel H. Hartman and Felix R. 
Brunot. The firm name taken was that of Singer, 
Hartman & Company. Messrs. Wallingford, Nimicks 
and Brunot were the capitalists and silent partners, 
while Messrs. Singer, Hartman and Jennings operated 
the concern. Mr. Hartman was a practical mill man, 
and became the manager of the entire works, which 
soon became famous as the ShejEeld Steel Works. The 
mill was constructed with a special view of adding the 
manufacture of plow steel slabs to the other lines of 
work. The slabs were run in lengths of ten to twelve 
feet, and ten to fourteen inches wide, and could be made 
to any required thickness. A very large demand for 
steel immediately sprung up, and as a result of the new 
manufacture, a large number of plow shops came into 
being in the west. The steel they made was of good 
quality, and ready sale was found for it at remunerative 
rates. For over two years they had a monopoly in that 
branch of their business. Then other mills began to 
follow in their footsteps, but the SheflGeld had the trade, 
and it was a long time before a breach of any size had 
been made in that part of their trade. They had 
fitted up a mill expressly for rolling plow slabs, and 
when the business was slack this was used for the mak- 



290 DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN. 

ing of boiler plate and sheet-iron. The other part of 
the mill was running on various kinds of work, such as 
steel carriage and buggy tires, crowbars, sledges, picks, 
and a host of other articles. The shops were running 
on springs and axles, solid box vises, and many other 
things of that character. They did at one time com- 
mence the manufacture of anvils, but the trouble of 
procuring workmen was so great, as they had all to be 
imported from England, that that line of business 
was soon dropped. 

The work of making steel at that day was entirely 
dififerent from that employed at present. No account 
of present methods will be attempted here, as they are 
so numerous and have been so fully described in special 
publications. But it will be of the greatest interest to 
look at the course followed in those days when America 
first commenced her growth in this great line of indus- 
try. In the course of preparation for this sketch I 
asked Mr. Jennings for a detailed description of the 
methods first pursued, and he kindly gave it to me, and 
it is here reproduced : The plan was the old English 
process of conversion. The iron was rolled from a 
bloom of charcoal iron down to the size required, and a 
half inch thick. It was then cut to proper lengths, and 
placed in a furnace constructed for the purpose. In 
each furnace are two sarcophagi, or "pots," as the work- 
men call them. Each pot will hold fifteen to twenty 
tons. On the bottom of the pots is a layer of ground 
charcoal a half inch thick, laid very evenly and 
smoothly ; then a layer of iron bars laid perfectly 
straight and smooth, then a layer of charcoal a fourth of 
an inch thick — and so on, alternate layers of iron and 
charcoal till the pot is full ; then a thick layer of char- 
coal, and the entire top covered with a layer of moist 
clay two or three inches in thickness, to render it as 
perfectly air-proof as possible. The other pot is treated 
in precisely the same manner. The fire is beneath, and 
the pot containing the iron and charcoal is surrounded 



FOURTH GENERATION. 291 

with fire, the heat moderate at first, but increased by 
degrees till brought up to the standard (2000) degrees 
and is kept steadily at that point night and day, and 
not for a moment allowed to be reduced till the iron is 
converted into steel, which takes seven to eight days. 
There are inserted in each pot trial bars, which are 
withdrawn one at a time when near the finish to ascer- 
tain when the iron is sufficiently carbonized, as it is a 
matter of importance that the temperature be not too 
high or too low. When sufiiciently converted the fire 
is let out, and after a few days of cooling, the top cover- 
ing is removed, which facilitates the cooling process. 
When sufficiently cool to be drawn, you will find the 
steel covered with blisters, and is then called " blister 
steel," the foundation of other steel. If it is intended 
for spring or plow steel, it is then heated and rolled 
down to the required thickness. The English 
then call it German steel, to distinguish it from cast 
steel. If for cast steel it is broken into pieces small 
enough to be put into crucibles, and melted in furnaces 
prepared for the purpose, and poured into a mould and 
it becomes an "ingot," and worked under hammers or 
rolls to any purpose desired. Now this was the only 
process by which steel was made when first introduced 
into Pittsburgh, but it is now almost entirely aban- 
doned, and other modes adopted by which steel can be 
made in a few hours by chemical process. 

Among other improvements introduced by Mr. 
Jennings was one which caused a complete revolution 
in the mode of supplying the plow-makers with steel, 
which proved to be profitable as well as satisfactory to 
both parties. Previously to this, the steel was furnished 
to plow-makers in the slabs, and they had to cut out 
the mould boards, shares, etc., by hand with cold 
chisels and sledges, a very tedious and laborious as well 
as expensive process. Mr. Jennings called upon two of 
the largest shops in Cincinnati and obtained their pat- 
terns, and proposed to cut their mould boards to shape, 



292 DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN. 

having constructed shears for the purpose. By this 
means the plow-maker saved the price of the scraps, 
which were of no value to them, as they would not bear 
transportation back to the works. He saved in freight 
on the weight of the scraps in the slab, and also in two 
blacksmith fires, which would be no inconsiderable item, 
as the average price of coal at that time throughout the 
west was twenty to twenty-five cents per bushel. The 
wages of four stout men were saved also. While the new 
plan increased the profit to the works, it was also a sav- 
ing of twenty per cent, to the plow-maker. Of course 
the plan was followed by other shops, and it soon be- 
came the general mode of furnishing steel to the plow 
manufacturers throughout the country. The Sheffield 
works are still in operation, and are among the largest 
concerns of the kind in the country. They have made 
many improvements, and added many new articles to 
their catalogue. 

In 1862 Mr. Jennings sold out his interest in these 
works, and since then has been engaged in no active 
business enterprise. But he has by no means been an 
idler, nor allowed the fine powers with which nature 
has endowed him to run to waste. No record of his 
life, however much in outline it might be made, could 
be complete were no mention made of his patriotic 
course during the War of the Rebellion. His heart and 
soul were in the Union cause, and he was not the man 
to stand idly by and see all the work done and all the 
burden borne by others. He turned in with all the 
power and energy within him to aid in the sending of 
soldiers into the field, and his services in that direction 
were of the most marked character. His oldest son, 
Benjamin F. Jennings, was then in the Sheffield office, 
and although only twenty-two or twenty-three years of 
age, was determined to raise a company of volunteers 
and lead them to the war. The father did not discour- 
age him, but aided him in all ways in his power, fur- 
nishing no small sums of money from his own pocket 



FOURTH GENERATION. 293 

for the payment of bounties to enlist men. When a 
certain number of volunteers had been raised, the men 
■were added to those of other companies raised in that 
way, and became company B, of the one hundred and 
fifty-fith regiment of Pennsylvania volunteer infantry. 
Mr. B. F. Jennings went out as second lieutenant 
thereof, but earned a captaincy before coming home. 

When Lee invaded Maryland, the governor of 
Pennsylvania called for fifty thousand emergency men. 
With other patriotic citizens all through the state, Mr. 
Jennings went to work and raised a company in Alle- 
gheny. Many of the people had allowed their sons to 
enlist under the expectation that Mr. Jennings was to 
be in charge of the company, and in order to make that 
misunderstanding good, he decided to unofficially 
accompany the boys to the seat of war. He went with 
them and they reached Hagerstown just after the battle 
of Antietam. They remained there two weeks, until 
after the danger of Lee's invasion of the north was at 
an end. Mr. Jennings aided the Union cause in many 
ways, and was one of General Howe's most efficient 
allies and supporters in keeping western Pennsylvania 
alive to her lull duties in those trying hours. He was 
often in Washington on business connected with mili- 
tary affairs and the carrying on of the war. On one oc- 
casion there was a new call for men, and sixty-five were 
assigned for raising in Mr. Jennings' ward in Allegheny 
to prevent a draft. A meeting of citizens was held and 
a committee, of which he was one, was appointed to 
procure the men. He went energetically to work, and 
the quota was soon filled at an average cost in bounties 
of one hundred and fifty dollars to each man, while 
from two hundred and fifty to four hundred dollars 
were being given elsewhere. He was of great assistance 
in raising of One Hundred days' men, and was the 
main instrument by which Allegheny sent five com- 
panies of them into the field, including his two younger 
sons, instead of the one that was asked for. His labors 



294 DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN. 

t 

in this direction brought on a serious spell of sickness. 
In all his labors he made no charge to the government, 
but in addition to his time, influence and energy, he 
gave also a great deal of money to the cause that lay so 
near his heart. He was a member of the City, State and 
National Union League, and was one of its most fore- 
most workers. 

Mr. Jennings has been an honored and consistent 
member of the Second Presbyterian Church of Pitts- 
burgh for forty years, and served a number of years on 
the board of trustees. On several occasions when elec- 
tions for elders have been held, he has been requested 
to serve in that position, but has as steadily declined. 
He has been vice-president of the Cash Insurance Com- 
pany since its creation, and still holds that position, 
although doing little active business of any sort. He 
was married on March 29, 1836, to Elizabeth B. Fitz- 
gerald, daughter of Michael Fitzgerald, at that time a 
prominent silversmith of Pittsburgh. There were born 
to this union three sons and two daughters, all of whom, 
with the exception of one daughter who died in infancy, 
are still living. He lost his wite three years ago. 

Mr. Jennings has lived a useful and honorable life. 
In politics he is a Republican, but has never held an 
office, and has left his mark on the industries of his 
home city. The channels through which he has made 
himself felt have not brought his works conspicuously 
before the world, but none the less has he done full 
duty and been of more use than many who have made 
a stir in the world. With a clean personal record, hon- 
ored by all who know him and loved by those who 
know him best, content to have done the best the cir- 
cumstances about him would allow, he is spending the 
afternoon of life in peace, and has no fear of the 
future toward which his face is turned.

In conformity with the family tradition, we have

All details of family history and names of descend- 
ants of these three are unknown to the compiler.

THE WEST JERSEY JENNINGS. 

The original purpose of the compiler of these 
records, was to trace, as accurately as may be, the lin- 
eage of the family to which he himself belonged. But 
in the course of his labors towards that end, such an 
amount of information concerning the collateral and 
allied families of the Jennings name has been accumu- 
lated, that it has seemed good to preserve it in a per- 
manent form, even though incomplete and imperfect, in 
the hope that it may be found useful, though only by 
the way of suggestion, to anyone who may hereafter be 
able to supply the facts at present unknown to the 
compiler. 

Thus it is that he is enabled to present something 
of the West Jersey Family ; and it is not an unpleasant 
task, inasmuch as to this family belong some who have 
been factors in forming both civic and ecclesiastic pol- 
itics in America, and whose names have found an hon- 
ored and permanent place in the history they them- 
selves largely made. 

The compiler is pleased 'to acknowledge here his 
indebtedness to Dr. John R. Stevenson, of Haddon- 
field, N. J., for the very kind and eflScient help so will- 
ingly rendered, and to him is to be very largely cred- 
ited the labor of compiling and furnishing the facts 
here presented concerning the family of Samuel Jen- 
nings ; and to Dr. William S. Long, of Kaddonfield, 
N. J., for his kind assistance in compiling the records 
of the family of Henry Jennings. 



WEST JERSEY JENNINGS 337 

That no complications may arise in the use of the 
index to this volume, the members of this family are 
designated by consecutive numbers continued from the 
numbering of the East Jersey families. 

The history of these families and the parts they 
have taken in life will fall out from the sketches of the 
various individuals mentioned in this lineage. 

There are two families whose relationship is un- 
known. . If Samuel and Henry were related it was not 
nearer than cousins. The compiler has no information 
concerning any relation between them other than the 
common family name ; but because they lived at the 
same time and in the same countries, they are grouped 
together. Whence the heads of the

♦John Jennings was a resident of Hartford, Conn., in 1639; in 165T he was in 
Southampton, L. I. Joseph Jennings was in Westchester, New York, in 1640. Henry 
Jennings came to Burlington, N. J., June 16, 1677, (whom see). 



FIRST GENERATION. 339 

Samuel Jenings"^ "was a man of education, stand- 
ing, influence and prominence, and was a member of 
the Society of Friends. In 1677 he was a minister in 
the London Monthly Meeting. His coming to America 
was occasioned by Edward Byllinge claiming the right 
to govern New Jersey, after having sold a large portion 
to others. The Friends, who were the actual owners, 
not caring to cause a contest at that time, submitted 
quietly, and Samuel Jenings came out as his deputy 
from his home in March, 1 680, arriving at Burlington 
in October of that year. He continued to act in that 
capacity for three years, when, in 1683, he was elected 
Governor for one year." Having been elected by the 
Provincial Assembly, Byllinge denied his right to serve, 
and attempted to remove him from oflEice,t but he 
seems to have served out his term. 

"At the expiration of his term he was sent with 
Thomas Budd to England to arrange with the proprie- 
tors to have the office of governor made elective. Not 
succeeding, he returned home, and in 1685 was elected 
a member of the West Jersey Assembly. In 1687 the 
'Council of Proprietors' of West Jersey was organized 
with eleven members, Samuel Jenings' name heading 
the list. This association is still in existence. 

In 1689 he removed to Philadelphia, and the next 
year, 1690, was appointed Receiver General of Penn- 
sylvania. 

In 1690-3 he was justice of the quorum and judge 
of the county court. He became involved on the 
Quaker side in the controversy provoked by George 
Keith, Thomas Budd and others. Out of this contro- 
versy r^rew the historic pamphlet, "The Plea of the 
Innocent,'' issued by Keith and Budd, in 1692, in which 
Jenings was charged with "being too high and imper- 
ious in worldly courts," and was called "an impudent, 
presumptous and insolent man."t

"A schism having arisen among the Friends, Sam- 
uel Jenings and Thomas Duckett were appointed by 
the yearly meeting in 1694 to visit London and lay the 
matter before the monthly meeting in that city. The 
mission being successful, Samuel Jenings returned to 
America and took up his residence once more in 
Burlington (1697-8). 

"The provinces of Bast and West Jersey were 
united into one — New Jersey — in 1702, and Lord Corn- 
bury was appointed Governor. He selected a council 
of thirteen, one of whom was Samuel Jenings. In 
1707 he was elected a member of the New Jersey 
Assembly and was chosen its Speaker. Here he dis- 
tinguisned himself by his firm and successful resistance 
to the arbitrary measures of Cornbury. The next year 
he was unable to attend the Assembly on account of 
illness, which terminated fatally.'' 

The inhabitants of the colony of New York, as 
well as those of New Jersey, became wearied of the mis- 
government of Cornbury and accordingly they deter- 
mined to send an appeal to Queen Anne for her to re- 
move the Governor. Samuel Jennings had the credit 
writing the address, which was forwarded to the home 
government, and by so doing he incurred the great dis- 
pleasure of Cornbury, who is reported to have said 
"Jennings was the most impudent man he ever knew.'' 
However it had the desired effect, and Lord Cornbury 
was recalled in 1708, the year of Samuel Jenning's 
death. Proud, the historian, wrote that "Samuel Jen- 
nings was worthy of memory, and endowed with both 
spiritual and temporal wisdom ; was suppressor of vice 
and encourager of virtue." He was one of those rare 
individuals in whom was concentrated a variety of 
qualifications and mental endowments, by which, under 
the sanctifying power of truth, he was made eminently 
useful to his fellow-men, both in his ministerial and 
civil capacity. He did more than any of his cotempor- 
aries in organizing the civil government of West

Jersey. At his death he left no sons to perpetuate his 
name, but three daughters. — Shoiird''s History of Fen- 
wick'' s Colony^ pp. IIQ-I2I. 

"His country residence was at Green Hill, a short 
distance from Burlington."* Samuel Jenings was a 
friend of William Penn, with whom he advised con- 
cerning weighty matters. He was a man who vigor- 
ously advocated the cause of right as he saw it, and 
strongly defended his position upon the prominent 
questions of the day ; thus bringing upon himself the 
severest denunciations of his opponents as well as the 
encomiums of his friends. To him is largely to be 
attributed the dominant politics of the times, and his 
influence was on the side of right.

Sarah Jenings, eldest daughter of Samuel Jen- 
ings, married Edward Pennington, in 1699 ; he was 
the youngest son of Isaac Pennington, an eminent 
citizen of London, a man of literature, who wrote 
extensively in defence of Quakerism. Edward's mother, 
when Isaac married her, was a widow of Sir William 
Springett, a military officer. William left one daughter 
— Guielma Maria Springett, who afterwards was the 
first wife of William Penn. There were two children — 
William and Letiti Penn. The second wife of William 
Penn was Hannah Callowhill; they had two sons. 
John, the only American child of William Penn, was 
born in Philadelphia, in the house that Samuel Carpen- 
ter built on Second street, corner of Norris alley. The 
second child by his second wife was Richard Penn. 
Edward Pennington was a half-brother of Guielma 
Penn ; he was a Surveyor-General of the Province of 
Pennsylvania up to the time of his death, which event 
took place in 1701, two years after his marriage, leaving 
one son — Isaac Pennington. — Shourds History of Fen- 
wick'' s Colony^ pp. iig-i2i. 

Edward Pennington was the son of Isaac Penning- 
ton, Alderman of London. The latter was, at one time, 
Lieutenant of the Tower, and subsequently Lord Mayor 
of London. He was one of the judges who condemned 
Charles I. to death. He married in 1654 Mary {Proude) 
Springett, daughter of Sir John Proude, and widow of 
Sir William Springett. Guielma Maria Springett, 
Lady Springett's daughter by her first husband, was a 
half sister of Edward Pennington, and the first wife of 
William Penn. Edward Pennington emigrated to 



SECOND GENERATION. 343 

Pennsylvania, where he was made Surveyor-General. 
He married Sarah Jennings Nov. 16, 1699, in Friend's 
meeting in Burlington, William Penn was present at 
the wedding. He left one son, Isaac Pennington. 
{Dr. J. R. Stevenson in the Jerseyman. V. ^.^No.j^p. ly.) 

Thomas Stevenson, the second husband of Sarah 
Jennings was born probably about 1674. A deed re- 
corded in Buck's County, Pennsylvania, and dated 
January 20, 1701, recites that Thomas Revell sold to 
" Thomas Stevenson, junior, of Long Island" for £500, 
1000 acres on the south side of Neshaminy Creek. 
This was in Bensalem township, a short distance from 
the present line of the city of Philadelphia, and near to 
the Delaware River. The succeeding year (March 16) 
he added to his possession 2,500 acres on the southwest 
bank of the same stream. That he had not moved on 
to this land is shown by the records of the Flushing 
Friends' Meeting* which in 1702, states that Thomas 
Stevenson, senior, and Thomas Stevenson, junior, had 
each a horse returned to them as the result of a petition 
to Gov. Lord Cornbury, after they had been destrained 
for the building of a church. " At a Monthly Meeting 
, held at ye meeting house in Flushing, the 2d. 6 mo. 99, 
Thomas Stevenson, Junior, desires a certificate from 
this meeting to friends of West New Jersey, concerning 
his orderly walking amongst us which this meeting 
has granted.'' From this it would appear that he at 
first intended to locate in New Jersey, but having 
bought land in Pennsylvania he had changed his mind, 
for at the Flushing Monthly meeting held 2d., 2 mo. 
1702, Thomas Stevenson, senior, of Newtown, requests 
a certificate of clearance for his son Thomas. 

Thomas Stevenson was elected a member of the 
Pennsylvania Assembly in 1710, and served contin- 
uously until his death in 1719. He was likewise one of 
the eight Justices of the Peace for Bucks County. In 
the year 1712 he was elected a member of the Council

of Proprietors of West Jersey. He was one of the great

was probated Oct. 9, 1719. [ The Jersey man, V. 4, No.j,

Thomas Lambert, of Chesterfield. 

William Stevenson, husband of Ann Jenings, was 
born in 1676, at Newtown, L. I. The first record of 
him in New Jersey is on an old map of Burlington, in 
1696, upon which is marked in his name a lot on the 
river front on the fourth block below High Street, con- 
taining one acre and five perches. The next we learn 
about him is from the records of the Flushing, L. I., 
Friends' Meeting, under date of 2 day, 9 mo., 1699. 
The minutes state that, "fWm. Stevenson Sent to 

*The minutes of the Chesterfield Friends' Meeting record on 5 day 2 mo. 1T31, that 
Thomas Lambert, of Chesterfield, a second time declared his intention to mary Ann 
Stevenson, a widow with children. She was his fourth wife.

Desire of this meeting a Sartificate of his conversation 
and clearance from all women in relation to marrage, 
and this meeting hath appoynted John Roadman to 
draw it, and if need require it to sign it in behalf of ye 
meetting.'' 

On *' 1 day, 11 mo., 1699," William Stevenson and 
Ann Jenings a second time declared their intention to 
marriage, "he producing certificates from Long Island 
and Chesterfield.'' The ceremony was performed at 
Burlington, November 16, 1699, at the same time that 
Sarah Jenings, sister to Ann, married Edward Penning- 
ton. William Penn was present and signed the ^cer- 
tificate as one of the witnesses. A deed dated April 
15, 1702, recites that William Stevenson of Northamp- 
ton Township, Burlington County, buys of Samuel 
Jenings of Burlington, for ;^900, "all that plantation 
called Green Hill in Northampton Township, 525 acres 
as it is laid." This appears to have been Gov. Jenings' 
country home ; his small brick house with a brass 
knocker on the door, bearing the initials S. J. is still 
standing and is now attached to a newer building and 
is used as a tenant house. 

William Stevenson was elected a member of the 
Council of Proprietors of West Jersey in 1711. He also 
represented Burlington County in the first New Jersey 
Assembly, which met at Perth Amboy in 1703, after the 
union of the Provinces of East and West Jersey in the 
year previous. His will is dated in Northampton 
Township, April 24, 1724, and was probated June 2d 
of that year. Like his brother Thomas, William 
Stevenson bought large tracts of land which he sub- 
divided and sold to actual settlers for small homesteads.

John Stevenson, husband of Mercy Jenings, the 
youngest son of Thomas and Elizabeth Stevenson, was 
born in Newtown, L. I., but probably removed from 
Newtown to his father's land on Doctor's Creek, 
Nottingham Township, Burlington County, N. J., some 
time after his brother William's marriage (1699), for 
we find in the minute book of the Chesterfield meeting, 
the nearest Friends' house of worship to these lands, 
and entry day 7 day, 1 mo., 1705-6, that "John Steven- 
son desired a clearance on account of marriage." This 
was followed by his declaration a second time, in the 
Burlington monthly meeting, 6 day, 3 mo., 1706, of his 
intention to marry Mercy Jenings, daughter of Samuel. 

John Stevenson took no part in public aflfairs, but 
remained on his plantation until the death of his wife, 
Mercy, which took place between 1720 and 1724.* His 
second marriage occurred in the latter year. The min- 
utes of the meeting held at Chesterfield 1 day, 8 mo., 
1724, record that "John Stevenson and Margaret Wood, 
both belonging to this meeting, declared their intention 

* On November 20, 1720, Mercy Stevenson signs, with her husband John, a deed to 
John Yorts for 163 acres of his plantation on the Province Line. — Liber X, page 94.

of taking each other in marriage, whereupon this meet- 
ing appoints our friends John Tatum and John Abbott 
to make inquiry of his clearance from all others on 
account of marriage, and make report to our next 
monthly meeting." 

On 5 day, 9 mo., 1724, John Stevenson a second 
time declared his intention to marry Margaret Wood. 

After his second marriage John Stevenson did not 
remain long on Doctor's Creek. He had previously 
sold part of his plantation, but on October 10, 1727, his 
wife Margaret joins him in a conveyance " to Thomas 
Betts, late of Newtown, Long Island," for "all that 
plantation whereon he now liveth on the north side of 
Doctor's Creek" bounded by land of Benjamin Rob- 
bins, Joseph Brittain, and Nathaniel Stevenson.* 

It was probably the influence of his wife's family 
that induced him to purchase one week afterward, Oc- 
tober 17, of Daniel Smith, 200 acres in Hunterdon 
County, on the west side of the road from Quakertown 
to Ringoes, two miles south of the former village.! For 
neighbors he had his nephew, Samuel Stevenson, son 
of his brother Thomas, and Jacoirnoiighty,~wh"ose wife 
was his second cousin. While this removal from Bur- 
lington to Hunterdon County seems a trivial circum- 
stance, it had much to do historically with the founding 
of the first Friend's Meeting in New Jersey, north of 
the Falls of the Delaware (Trenton). 

John Stevenson died intestate in 1744. — Dr. J. R.

THIRD GENERATION. 353 

most eccentric and picturesque figures in early colonial . 
times. Francis Doughty was the son of a brewer in 
Bristol, England, and the brother-in-law of Governor 
Stone of Maryland. He was educated for the church, 
but cast in his lot with the Puritans, and emigrated to 
America. We find him located at Cohasset, now 
Taunton, Mass. Here he got into a dispute with the 
elders on the subject of infant baptism, and pressed his 
views so vehemently that he and his wife and children 
were banished. He fled to Rhode Island, and from 
thence joined one of the first English Colonies that 
settled among the Dutch on Long Island. He became 
the Pastor of the little community that settled at Mezpah- 
Kill, afterwards Newtown. This settlement was bro- 
ken up by the Indians in 1643; the remnant of the 
colony, with Mr. Doughty, fled to New Amsterdam, 
where he preached in the church in the Fort. He 
made a claim for the colonists' land at Mezpah-Kill as 
his own, which was disputed and decided against him 
in 1647, but he was allowed the land he had in poses- 
sion. Appealing from this decision, the Dutch 

Director, General Kieft, fined him ten guelders and 
locked him up in prison lor twenty-four hours. Upon 
his release, Mr. Doughty applied for permission to go to 
Holland or the West Indies, but this was refused. He 
had accepted a call from the Congregational Church at 
Flushing, L- I., where he preached during 1646 and 
1647. Here he again got into trouble by denouncing 
the authorities, so that Capt. John Underbill, who was 
then living in that town, locked the doors of the church 
against him. Mr. Doughty, leaving his three children 
behind him, in 1648 emigrated to Maryland. There he 
appears to have changed his religion and returned to 
the English Church, and became Rector of Sitting- 
bourne Parish in Virginia. While officiating here, he 
baptized, in 1659, the eldest son of John Washington, 
grandfather of George Washington. Here also he got 
into difficulties for denying the supremacy of the King, 
contrary to the canons of the church. 

Rev. Francis Doughty had three children : Mary, 
Francis, Jr., and Elias. Elias was the grandfather of 
Daniel Doughty.

CHAPTER IX. 

"Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be 
called."— Heb. XI: 18. 



The history of the family of Henry Jennings is 
especially to be noticed, because it was through this 
branch of the Jennings name, the great effort of the 
*' Isaac Jennings Association" was directed toward the 
establishing of the rights of its members as claimants 
to the estate of " William of Acton." 

It is with the belief that it is the best commentary 
upon the work of the "Association'' and its expecta- 
tions, that the compiler is glad to present the state- 
ment made in a letter from Dr. W. S. Long : 

Haddonfield, N. J., 1 Apr,, 1899. 
W. H. Jennings, Esq.: 

My Dear Sir— Your favor of 19th Mar. in regard to History of 
the Jennings family was received and I take pleasure in forward- 
ing the following notes on the Isaac Jennings branch=priucipally 
located in West New Jersey. 

At various times in the past ten years, papers, letters, pam- 
phlets and pedigrees, etc., relating to the Jennings family, 
have been submitted to me for examination. Without entering 
into a discussion of the justice of the claim of persons who are 
descended from Isaac Jennings of Gloucester Co., N. J., to a for- 
tune reputed to exist in England, I will only say that in the 
pedigrees, the connecting links between Isaac Jennings and the 
famous "William the Intestate" of Acton, Eng., so far as my 
knowledge goes, are exceedingly unreliable, being constructed on a 
basis of surmise, totally devoid of support of official or bible 
family records or documentary evidence and have not even tra- 
dition with its oftime flimsy evidence to fall back upon. 

One pamphlet purporting to be a History of the " Jenuens" 
Estate, presenting the pedigrees of the West Jersey claimants and 
bearing the name of one of their attorneys as compiler, is so full of 

(35T) 



358 DESCENDANTS OF SAMUEL. 

palpable errors that the veriest tyro in Genealogy would be able 
to distinguish them. It is not creditable to the discretion, wis- 
dom or business aptitude of the ruling element among these 
claimants, that they should have entrusted the conduct of a claim 
so important in the hands of agents who had shown in their 
work and writings their gross ignorance of the construction of 
the family pedigree. It would seem very essential that the pedi- 
gree should prove by good and reasonable evidence, the connec- 
tion of each generation with the preceding, and, finally, the 
relationship of the first in America with "William of Acton," 

Nothing of this nature was done. Without attempting appar- 
ently to prove the links of connection in this country, and, so far 
as I can learn, without attempting a thorough searcl\ in the oflice 
of the Secretary of State at Trenton, N. J., for wills, deeds, etc., 
they rushed off to England to present a claim to untold millions, 
for which they could show not a shadow of title other than the 
possession of a surname. They could not show conclusively the 
relationship of Isaac Jennings of Old Gloucester County, and 
Henry of Salem and Pbiladelphia, through whom they claimed 
heirship, and until this is done and reasonable evidence is given 
that Henry of Salem is heir-at-law or next of kin to " William of 
Acton," it is folly for the West Jersey claimants to pursue the 
igims fatuus further in an English Court of Law. The agents 
of these claimants succeeded in amusing and deceiving a large 
number of respectable but too credulous people, who paid their 
assessments with becoming regularity, and in turn were regaled 
with glowing descriptions of great iron bound and triple-locked 
chests in the vaults of the Bank of England, filled with coin 
and plate, all of which were to speedily pass into their possession. 

Whether Isaac of Gloucester and Henry of Phila- 
delphia were related, as son to father, or indeed in any- 
way, is a problem difficult of solution. The compiler 
has treated them as father and son, but is pleased to 
present adverse testimony in the form of a recent letter 
from W. S. Long : 

Haddonfield, N. J., 7 Aug., 1899. 
W. H. Jennings, Esq. : 

My Dear Sir — The subject of the relationship of Henry Jen- 
nings, of Philadelphia, and Isaac, of Gloucester, has been the 
object of a thorough search in Philadelphia, Trenton and Wood- 
bury, where the ancient deeds and wills bearing on the subject 
are to be found. The result of my labor is as follows : 

The family descended from Isaac Jennings of Gloucester 
County, did not trace their origin farther back until after the voy- 
age of the Argonauts for the golden prize in England. Their 



FIRST GENERATION. 359 

agents soon found it necessary to discover an ancestor, and it 
required but slight research to find the wills of Henry and Mar- 
garet Jennings at Trenton. There was no discoverable tradition 
of Henry bearing any relationship to Isaac. He does not mention 
phildren in his will. He leaves a farm which he bought of 
* Thomas Graves to Isaac Jennings, and the house in which he 
lived to "my cousin Margaret Jennings," daughter of Isaac, of 
London. No mention is made of Sarah Jennings and surely a 
daughter would take precedence over a niece. 

About 1715, our Isaac Jennings appeared and bought land in 
New Jersey, about eight miles from Philadelphia where Henry 
died ten years before and where several families of the surname 
lived whose relationship, if any, does not appear. No record 
either in Pennsylvania or New Jersey shows that he had ever 
inherited land from Henry or Margaret Jennings of Philadelphia. 
Outside of a common baptismal name in connection with a sur- 
name of frequent occurrence, there was no reason for associating 
Henry and Isaac as father and son until the stern necessity arose 
of finding the missing link to a great treasure-trove. The inge- 
nuity of the Genealogists was taxed to bring Isaac of Gloucester 
one generation nearer the goal (or gold ) of their hopes— and behold 
a pedigree ! 

It was calculated to keep the purses of the agents and attor- 
neys well filled— their constituents were buoyed up with hopes 
which were bound to be dashed to ground eventually, by a fiction 
which would have no weight even in the lowest courts of law in 
any civilized country. 

There is no evidence which would be accepted in our courts 
that Henry of Salem and Philadelphia was the father of Isaac 
whose descendants are here given. 

* Thomas Graves was a resident of Philadelphia in 1685, when he bought 200 acres in 
Philadelphia County and in 1712, when he sold 200 acres. In 1700 he sold 3 acres to the 
corporation or agents of Trinity P. E. Church at Oxford, near Frankford, Pa. His 
name is not found in Trenlon indexes.

The compiler has no information concerning Sarah. 

Henry Jennings was a prominent member of Salem 
Monthly Meeting of Friends, soon after its organiza- 
tion. He was the son of William and Mary Jennings, 
born the 21st of 7th month, 1642, in the County of 
Surrey, England. Henry and his wife, Margaret Jen- 
nings, embarked for America in the ship Kent, Captain 
Gregory, and landed at New Salem 23d of 6th month, 
1677. In 1682, John Adams, son-in-law of John Fen- 
wick, sold Henry Jennings 200 acres of land. He 
likewise purchased a considerable tract of land in 
Cohansey precinct, it being near the town of Cohansey, 
(now Greenwich). Henry and his wife removed from 
Salem and located in the city of Philadelphia, about the 
year 1700, and at that place ended their days. He was 
a tailor by trade and followed it in that city. He died 
in 1706 and made his will the year previous ; and, not 

'■•In Shourd's History of Fenwick's Colony, it is mentioned that Henry Jennings 
"not having any children, etc/' This we think is a mistake arising from misunderstand- 
ing the English use of the word "cousin," in Henry Jennings-' will, and the word , 
"reputed" in the will of Margaret Jennings. We would say after the present day 
American fashion Jfcat Henry means by "cousin" niece, and his bequests are, first : to

liaving any children, he devised most of his estate to 
his uncle, Isaac Jennings, of London, and to the 
■daughter of Isaac, Margaret Jennings, his cousin. — 
Shourd^s History of Fenwick' s Colony^ p. 119. 

There are many persons in West New Jersey who 
are said to be descended from Henry Jennings. This 
seems to me to be probable, and I shall therefore pre- 
sent such references to him as have appeared in official 
and historical records. The following I am told by a 
former Secretary of the " Jennens Association," was 
certified to by Richard M. Acton, Custodian of Records 
of Salem Monthly Meeting, 8th mo. 14, 1878 : 

" Henry Jennings, son of William and Mary, was born 7 mo. 
21, 1642, in the Parish of Clemonddeane, in County Surrey, 
England, Married 1 mo. 18, 1666, in London, Margaret, daughter 
of Paul Bussie, of York City, Old England. They left England for 
West New Jersey on ship 'Kent' 2 mo. 5, 1677, with their servant, 
Martha,^ daughter of John Basset, arriving at Salem, 6 mo. 23, 1677." 

Judge Clement, in " First Settlers in Newton 
Township " p. 287, further states that Margaret Busse 
was of the Parish of St. Bartholomew, London. 

Henry Jennings was a Friend and so far as we can 
learn a strict member of the Society. I have collected 
a few memoranda of the man while living at Salem, 
N. J., prior to his removal to the city of Philadelphia. 
He and his wife Margaret, frequently appear as wit- 
nesses to marriages in Salem meeting.

three others "Avere appointed to take a view of Edward Brad-

John Hugg, Senr. died 1706. He had lived at the junction of 
Great and Little Timber Creeks, very near the Delaware River. 
It is believed that the site of Old Fort Nassau — the first point of 
settlement by Europeans (in 1623) on the shore of the Delaware 
River, was on his land. John Hugg, Jr., married Priscilla Col- 
lins and it was to her that Henry .leunings' widow Margaret left 
property and appointed John Hugg her executor.

I have never made any search at Trenton for 
records of Henry, Margaret or Isaac Jennings. The 
above memoranda were largely copied from notes made 
by the late Hon. John Clement of HaddOnfield. He 
told me that neither the Surv*eyor General's office at 
Eurlington, or the Secretary of State's office at Trenton 
had been systematically searched for data relating to 
the family, and that doubtless much could be learned 
from those sources. ^ 

Nothing further is known of Sarah Jeniiings, sister

SECOND GENERATION. 365^ 

In 1715, Isaac Jennings bought land of John Hugg 
(Executor of Margaret J.) at head of Timber Creek. 
Where this land is situate we know not. Isaac owned 
land south of Haddonfield and it is believed he lived a 
short distance beyond the Phila. & Atlantic City R. R. 
on the road from Haddonfield to Clement's Ridge. His 
son Jacob, in 1784, bought the farm at Barrington 
recently sold by Burr Haines, and his father's we 
believe was not far to the south of this tract. 

Isaac and his wife Judith were members of Friends' 
Meeting in Haddonfield and both we believe are buried 
in the graveyard belonging to it. 

1724 to 1727. From Cushing and Sheppard's Hist, 
of Gloucester, Salem and Cumberland Counties, page 
124, we learn that Isaac Jennings was Justice of the 
County of Gloucester during those years. 

1740, 5th mo. 14th. Under this date appears a 
minute in Haddonfield Meetings Records, which shows 
the time of his becoming a member : 

"At ye Eequest of Isaac Jennings, Fr'ds consent that he may 
set in our meetings of Business & that Ephraim Tomlinson is to 
acquaint him therewith."

368 DESCENDANTS OF HENRY 

Sarah Jennings married George Flanningham in 
1736, as we learn from the list of marriage licenses 
granted that year. He was probably a Presbyterian, 
and became the owner of land in Greenwich Township. 
His surname was generally spelled phonetically, and, 
after a generation or two, his descendants bearing the 
name very generally wrote it Flanagan. 

In Gushing and Sheppard's Hist, of Gloucester Co. 
page 112, we learn that in 1764 George Flannigam, 
Francis Battin and Thomas Denny, Esqs., were 
appointed to meet a like committee from Salem Co. to 
mark the boundaries between the two counties. 

In 1765, the arms belonging to the County were 
divided into four equal lots and given 

John Hinchman and John Mickle ; 
Samuel Harrison and John Ryder ; ( ? Hyder)

and had received liberal educations. They owned a 
large tract of land near Haddonfield, N. J., between the 
north and south branches of Cooper's Creek — part of the 
original plantation of John Kay — founder of the family 
in New Jersey. Here during part of the summer 
months they gathered at "Kayville" for rest from the 
heat of the city, and prepared for their journey to some 
of the fashionable watering places of that period. 
Saratoga seemed to have been the favorite, but the 
difficulties of travel by coach were so great that the 
visits there were infrequent. An old gentleman, a 
Friend, who well remembers this circle of Philadel- 
phians, tells me it was a charming one, distinguished 
for the refinement and courtesy of its members.

CHAPTER VIII. 



JOSHUA OF CONNECTICUT. 



"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good 
courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord 
thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." — Joshua 1 : 9. 

In presenting the records of the family of Joshua, 
the compiler feels that the work he has attempted will 
be the more nearly complete and the more useful. And 
inasmuch as it is the first time an eflfort has been 
made to bring into one collection, the records of the 
various families of the Jenning name, he thinks him- 
self fortunate in having received the benefits of the 
labors of others, whose kindness has permitted him 
thus to attain the more comprehensive results. For 
what is here presented concerning the family of Joshua^ 
much credit must be given to Abraham Gould Jen- 
nings, of Brooklyn, whose contributions to the Ameri- 
can Family Antiquity^ by Albert Welles, has been drawn 
on to the fullest extent. The compiler is largely in- 
debted also to Mr. Francis A. White, of Everett, Wash- 
ington, for the results of his labor, and the corrections 
and other matter supplemental to the history as given 
in American Family Antiquity. From the pen of Mr. 
White we have the following: 

" For many years I have had a desire to trace the 
lineage of my mother, Mariett Jennings White, and to 
perpetuate the remembrance of her in my own family 
and the descendants of her children, I have at this

" I have by examination of records, verified the 
descent of my mother from Joshua Jennings, an En-

" The record of the birth of Joshua Jennings has 
never been found, and it is not known when he came 
to this country. From the date of his marriage it is 
reasonable to suppose that he was born previous to 
1620, and that he came to America in one of the many 
ships loaded with imigrants, between 1630 and 1640, 
He died in Fairfield, in 1675, and his will was filed and 
proven in that year. The first record of him is in 
Hartford, Conn., as having married Mary Williams in

that town, Dec. 22, 1647, eleven 'years after the town 
was first settled by Rev. Thomas Hooker and his con- 
gregation, who separated from the colony at Cambridge, 
Mass., on account of his disagreement with Rev, John 
Cotton, in the Antinomian Controversy in 1636. He 
left Hartford in 1650 with his wife, by ship, and settled 
in Fairfield. The tradition of his family is that he 
landed first at what is now called Bridgeport and went 
to Barlow's Plain. He was an intelligent and industri- 
ous man, a worthy citizen, and maintained an excellent 
reputation. He died in 1675, leaving a good estate to 
his wife and children."* r 

" From Joshua Jennings, who settled at Fairfield, 
Conn., in 1656 or earlier, and who died in Fairfield in 
1674, have descended many families who have done 
much toward the populating of Fairfield and the adja- 
cent towns; extending the industrial art^s of peace and 
commerce, agriculture and manufactures. 

The numerous descendants are traced down 
through all the Probate and Church Records of Fair- 
field, and the neighboring villages and towns. Green 
Farms, which was formerly Fairfield, West Parish, is 
composed largely of people of the name of Jennings. 
Many of the descendants of Joshua are now (1881) oc- 
cupying land set out to him when what is known in 
Green Farms as the * long lots ' were laid out. Much 
of the property in the northern part of the town of 
Fairfield, in a section called 'Jennings Woods,' or 
properly 'Jennings Farm,' was owned by Joshua Jen- 
nings. There is not a burying-grouud but has its old 
free-stone of one hundred years ago, and the white 
marble of today, to the memory of a Jennings. 

" Their name is associated with thrift and prosper- 
ity; honest, industrious and orderly lives; domestic in 
their habits, or fond of home life; retiring, not seeking 
publicity. They were also patriotic as the Records 
show, ready to risk property and life in the defence of 
their countrj'."!

Isaac Jennings died March 6, 1760, Moses Jennings 
executor. He left his property to his wife Phebe and 
children. His granddaughter Esther, was a daughter 
of his son Seth Jennings, and, he being dead, she 
received his legacy. She was the grandmother of Mrs- 
Esther L. Huntington, of Fairfield, a much esteemed 
lady, foremost in the Centennial Commemoration of 
1879, and much interested in the history of her native 
town. She is a sister of Morris Lynn, the founder of 
Fairfield Library. 

Lucretia Jennings, the daughter of Isaac Jennings, 
was the grandmother of the late Frederick Marquand of 
Southport, and of his brother Henry G. Marquand of 
New York City. Frederick Marquand erected the 
Marquand Chapel of Yale College. He also gave a fine 
library and building for its use at Southport. Henry 
B. Marquand is widely known for his munificent dona- 
tions to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the city of 
Kew York. — From Record of F. A. White.

John Jennings made his will May 12, 1791. He 
died in 1799, aged ninety-three years. Will presented 
and proved May 20, 1799. 

The tradition of his family descendants is that he 
had removed to Fairfield in his old age, and when 
Fairfield was burned, July 7 and 8, 1779, by the British 
troops under Governor Tryon, his house was the first 
house burned. It is now claimed by the " Historian of 
Fairfield," that the first house burned was Isaac 
Jennings', as John was the son of Isaac Jennings and his 
father Isaac had been dead many years, he might have 
been living in the house, as his brother Isaac Jennings 
was also dead, as shown by his will filed in 1760.

his consent. He continued his studies at Greenfield 
Hill, was a good Greek and Latin scholar, and a great 
lover of books; after his marriage he accumulated a 
large library. He lived in the town of Weston, three 
miles from Greenfield Hill ; the last two years of his 
life he lived with his son Phileman Jennings, one mile 
from his old homestead. His love for books could 
never be satisfied. My mother, Mariett Jennings, his

THE MOREHOUSE FAMILY OF FAIRFIELD, CONN. 

Thomas Morehouse, ^ the immigrant ancestor, was in Wethersfield, Conn., as early as 
1640. In 1641 he removed to Stamft rd, and was one of the original thirty white settlers of 
that town who purchased it of the Indians for one hundred bushels ol corn. In 1653 he 
settled in Fairfield, and died there in 1658, leaving widow Isabel and children Hannah, ° 
Samuel,^ (who had five sons), Thomas, ^ Mary,^ Jonathan,- (who married Mary Wilson, 
daughter of Edward, of Fairfield), and John,^ (who was an Ensign in King Philip^s War, 
1676, and settled in Southampton, L. I., where he died). 

Thomas Morehouse, i as believed, was the ancestor of «// the Morehouse's In America.

His name was sometimes spelled in the early records Moorhouse, and at least one branch 
of his descendants now spell their name Morhous. I am also inclined to believe that 
another has adopted the orthography of Morris. 

His descendants were found in New Jersey near Newark, Elizabeth, etc, among the 
old families and settlers before the Revolution; in Saratoga Co., N. Y., and the north- 
eastern counties of that State ; and throughout the west. Those of southwestern Con- 
necticut and of Dutchess and Putnam Counties, New York, are believed to have descen- 
ded from the son Samuel,^ through his five sons, Samuel, Jr.,' Thomas,^ James, ^ John,* 
(who had sons Gershoni,* Abijah,* John,-* Ephraim,* and James,*) and Daniel,^ (who 
married Hannah, daughter of Lieut Abraham Adams, of Fairfield, Conn.) 

My mother was a Morehouse of the seventh generation, and of the Saratoga County 
branch. 

I am compiling a genealogy of the " Morehouse Family in America " with a view to 
its publication, and desire a record of every family of that name in the United States, 
with all information concerning their history, occupations, residences, etc., obtainable, 
and will be pleased to correspond with all interested in the subject.

2538 Mary she married Capt. Samuel Chester Reid, who was 
afterwards Commodore Reid of the United States 
Navy. She was the mother of Madame de Ces- 
nola, wife of General de Cesnola, President of the 
Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City. 

Capt. Nathan Jenniiigs left school when young and 
entered the army of the Revolution in 1776, and served 
until peace was declared in 1783. He used to say '*I 
joined the army as high private with silk stockings and 
silver knee buckles, and came out a captain, ragged, 
barefooted, and with no buckles of any kind." He 
was in many a hard fought battle, and shared the glory 
at Trenton under General Washington. 

Mary Jennings, the daughter of Capt. Nathan 
Jennings and wife of Commodore Reid, made the 
American flag at her house, assisted by some of her 
young lady friends, according to an Act of Congress, 
passed April 4, 1818, and approved by President Mon- 
roe, and adopted in its present form ; the design was 
made by Commodore Reid at the request of Peter H. 
Wendover, chairman of the Congressional Committee. 
The new flag made by Mary Jennings Reid, was hoisted 
over the House of Congress while Henry Clay was 
Speaker, April 13, 1818, at 2 o'clock p. m. 

It will be understood that the American flag before 
this time was made to represent as many stripes and 
stars as there were states. The new flag reduced the 
stripes to the original thirteen states, adding only stars 
for the new states.

Isaac Jennings, M. D., was born in Fairfield, Conn., 
and studied medicine. He practiced first in Derby, 
Conn., and in 1839 removed to Oberlin, Ohio. After 
some years of practice, his views on medicine under, 
went a change and he retired from the practice of the 
profession. The last twenty-five years of his life he 
devoted principally to writing and promulgating his 
views. He was the author of four books : "Medical 
Reform," "Philosophy of Human Life," "The Tree of 
Life," and "Orthopothy." 

Dr. Jennings was kind, genial and respected by 
all. He had great patience and charity, never showing 
any sign of irritation or bitterness or fanaticism, as do 
some reformers whose opinions are not accepted at 
once. His death made a void in the hearts and homes 
of many whom his kindness had blessed. — See extracts

navigation and qualified himself to take charge of a 
ship, at the age of fourteen years. He left school to 
learn the practical part, and shipped for St. Domingo. 
His first voyage was successful ; on the second voyage 
his ship was taken by a British man-of-war and all on 
board made prisoners. As soon as he was exchanged

"John Gould Jennings was educated in the schools 
of his native town. When a boy of ten he went with 
his father on a voyage to China, and at the age of 
seventeen, he chose the life of a sailor, but afterwards 
abandoned it, and engaged in the manufacture of 
carriages. In 1849 he moved with his family to Cali- 
fornia, and resided for a long time at San Lonardo. He 
never returned to the east. He engaged principally in 
the business of building small vessels for trade on the 
Sacramento river, in which he had fair success. 

"In his various occupations he has manifested 
quite a genius for mechanical invention. One of his 
inventions was a many chambered or revolving rifle, 
almost identical with the Colts revolver. In the 
summer of 1835 or 6, by appointment of Congress, a 
trial was made at West Point of new improved firearms. 

"John G. Jennings was present with two well 
made rifles, twelve and sixteen chambers respectively, 
confident that there would be none there to excel his in 
design and arrangement, but, great was his surprise to 
find a rifle almost, identical with his, introduced by one 
who afterwards became the well-known Mr. Samuel 
Colt. His disappointment was still greater when he 
learned that Mr. Colt, by only about one month, had 
preceded him in his application for a limited states 
patent. Mr. Jennings declined to continue the trial or 
invention any further, notwithstanding the military 
officers present assured him that they liked best his 
arrangement for loading and discharging, etc. As he 
believed that the main principle of his invention (the 



432 DESCENDANTS OF JOSHUA 

revolving chamber) was lost to him, he had no time, 
money or heart to spend in the other parts. 

"This is one among many instances of simultaneous 
inventions. This genius or aptitude for mechanical 
invention seems to run in a degree in some branches of 
the Jennings Family, of Fairfield, Conn. The record 
in the Patent office at Washington, shows over two 
hundred in the name of Jennings ; thirty-six of which 
are credited to Isaac Jennings, formerly of Fairfield; 
many of which were important. One was the invention 
of friction matches now in universal use. 

John G. Jennings in 1882 was living at San 
1/onardo, California. — American Family Antiquity^ p.

Augustus Jennings received his first education in 
the common schools and academy in Fairfield, Conn. 
At an early age he was placed in a leading dry goods 
store in Bridgeport, Conn., where he gained a fair 
knowledge of business and acquired a good name for 
integrity, industry and faithfulness. 

He went to the city of New York and entered into 
the employ of Messrs. Oliver T. & J. Hewett. 

At his father's request he left the city in 1835 and 
engaged in business at Southport, Conn., with his 
brother John, in manufacturing carriages. The "crash 
of 1837" paralyzed the trade throughout the United 
States for years. 

About the year 1859, he engaged in the paper 
business in partnership with his brother, Capt. Isaac, 
finally adding Japan paper ware. — Amer. Fam. Antiq.^
