This  is  a  digital  copy  of  a  book  that  was  preserved  for  generations  on  library  shelves  before  it  was  carefully  scanned  by  Google  as  part  of  a  project 

to  make  the  world's  books  discoverable  online. 

It  has  survived  long  enough  for  the  copyright  to  expire  and  the  book  to  enter  the  public  domain.  A  public  domain  book  is  one  that  was  never  subject 

to  copyright  or  whose  legal  copyright  term  has  expired.  Whether  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  may  vary  country  to  country.  Public  domain  books 

are  our  gateways  to  the  past,  representing  a  wealth  of  history,  culture  and  knowledge  that's  often  difficult  to  discover. 

Marks,  notations  and  other  maiginalia  present  in  the  original  volume  will  appear  in  this  file  -  a  reminder  of  this  book's  long  journey  from  the 

publisher  to  a  library  and  finally  to  you.

EXPLANATIONS. 


In  airaoging  this  work,  it  has  been  my  object  to  give  all  the  autheo- 
tic  histoiy  and  genealt^  connected  with  John  White  and  his  descend- 
ants, io  the  plainest  manner.  We  are  too  large  a  family  to  allow  o( 
imaginary  history,  therefore  I  have  confined  myself  to  plain  facts.  The 
work  is  carried  forward  in  the  usual  form  to  the  birth  of  the  fifth  gen- 
eration, then  each  one,  whose  descendants  could  be  found,  were  brought 
forward  in  a  separate  branch  to  the  latest  generation.  The  branches 
to  number  557  will  be  found  in  this  volunse,  and  the  remaining  branches 
carried  forward  in  the  second. 

I  have  made  use  of  no  unusual  abbreviations,  using  those  of  months 
and  states,  also  b.,  bom ;  bapt,  baptized ;  m.,  married ;  d.,  died ;  p., 
page ;  vol.,  volume ;  dan.,  daughter. 

1  have  made  no  distinction  in  the  male  ^nd  female  lines,  except 
omitting  the  name  of  White  when  derived  from  our  emigrant  ancestor. 
Each  member  is  numbered  at  birth,  and  when  the  name  is  followed  by 
+  it  will  be  found  again  in  its  proper  place  with  the  birth  number  in 
a  bracket  at  the  right  of  the  name.  If  no  +  follows,  all  I  could  leant 
is  recorded  at  the  birth.  The  small  superior  figure  at  the  end  of  each 
name  denotes  the  generation. 

Though  I  began  this  work  alone,  and  have  never  thrown  the  burden 
upon  any  one  else,  yet  I  am  deeply  in  debt  to  many  for  untiring  eHort 
in  helping  to  complete  the  records,  especially  to  Mrs.  Clara  A.  Carter, 
Miss  Eliza  M.  Pratt,  Mr.  William  O.  Taylor  and  Mr.  J.  B.  White,  be- 
sides many  others,  whom  1  would  here  thank  for  their  kind  assistance. 

The  forming  of  the  association  in  1896  has  helped  to  bring  me  in 
touch  with  many  new  members  of  the  family,  for  which  1  feel  that 
thanks  are  due  our  President,  Captain  Charles  H.  White,  who  first  si^- 
gested  the  idea,  as  well  as  for  other  assistance  and  encouragement.

GENEALOGY. 

Descendants  of  John  White. 
1638. 


1.  JOHN  A\'hite  was  of  Salem  in  the  Province  of  Massachusetts 
Bay,  1638.  We  have  been  unable  to  leain  just  when  he  came,  the 
name  of  the  ship  he  came  on ;  or  the  maiden  name  of  Joane,  his  wife. 
Oct.  28,  1784,  Col.  Jonathan  White^  (150),  of  Leominster,  told  his 
son,  Dea.  James  White''  (554),  of  Heath,  Mass. ;  (and  he  made  a  note 
(rf  it,  with  the  date  in  his  account  book)  : 

That  bis  great  grandfather  came  from  the  west  part  of  England ; 
that  he  had  two  sons,  Thomas'^,  who  settled  in  Wenham,  and  Josiah*, 
who  settled  on  his  father's  estate  in  l^ncaster,  and  his  son,  Josiah,  Jr., 
lived  on  the  same  estate,  and  his  son  Jonathan  in  Leominster,  and  his 
sons,  James  and  Asaph,  then  lived  in  Charlemont.  It  is  signed  James 
While,  and  he  adds  "This  account  I  had  from  ray  father,  this  day." 

It  was  copied  from  Dea.  James  White's  account  book  by  F.  W, 
White'  (8085)  in  1848. 

■Aug.,  1639,  John  White  was  received  an  inhabitant  of  Salem,  and 
granted  60  acres  land,  near  Mr.  Smith's  farm. 

Feb.  15,  1642,  be  was  granted  6  acres  meadow  at  Enon  (Wenham) 
"which  John  Woodbury  did  apoynt  him  to  mowe,  which  he  hath 
mowed,  these  2  or  3  years  past." 

.Also  40  acres  more  of  upland,  and  4  of  meadow  to  be  laid  out  near 
the  former. 

"Jan.  30,  1643,  He  with  Richard  Prince,  Sarah  wife  of  Daniel 
Tmmball,  in  the  right  of  George  Norton,  are  granted  4  acres  meadow 
each,  at  Wenham,  then  in  the  possession  of  William  Paine."  (Salem 
book  of  Grants.) 

The  Arst  saw  and  grist  mill,  in  Wenham,  was  built  by  Robert  Haws, 
upon  the  brook  running  through  John  White's  grant  of  land.  The 
farm  is  now  owned  and  occupied  by  Mr.  David  Pingree,  and  his  sister;

and  is  known  as  "White's  Mills,"  although  the  mill  has  long  since  gone 
to  decay. 

In  1653,  the  Planters  made  the  following :

His  wife.Joane,  was  admitted  to  the  first  church  in  Salem,  Feb.  26, 
1642-3,  where  three  of  their  children  were  baptized.  His  name  does 
not  appear  upon  the  church  roll.  The  children  are  baptized  in  the 
mother's  name. 

On  the  forming  of  the  church  in  Wenham,  Joane  White  was  dis-

Extract  from  the  Church  Record  kept  by  the  Rev,  John  Fisk,  Pastor 
of  the  first  Church  in  Wenham,  Mass.  (Organized  Oct.  8th,  1644. 
O.S.) 

It  does  not  appear  that  John  White  ever  lived  in  Salem  proper.  As 
all  his  grants  of  land  were  located  in  Wenham,  it  is  conclusive  that  he 
lived  there,  as  that  town  was  in  the  jurisdiction  of  Salem  until  1648  —

the  same  as  Beverly,  until  1674 — going  under  the  general  name  of 
Salem. 

JOHN  White'  is  first  mentioned  in  Lancaster,  May  1,  1653,  when 
he,  with  others,  subscribed  to  "  Rules  for  Proportion  of  Meadow."  He 
had  twenty  acres  of  land  allotted  to  him  on  the  Neck,  between  the  lots 
of  James  Atherton  on  the  south  and  John  Lewis  on  the  north,  and  as 
the  "Annals  of  Lancaster"  state,  his  house  stood  on  the  east  end  of 
said  lo^  at  or  near  where  the  house  of  Edward  Houghton  now  stands, 
and  direct  descendants  have  resided  there  until  the  death  of  Dea. 
Samuel  F.  White,6  son  of  Dea.  Joseph  White^  (604),  Mar.  IS,  1843. 

The  house  was  burned  first  by  the  Indians  in  1676,  and  again  by 
accident  in  1816 ;  and  rebuilt  by  Dea.  Samuel  F.  White.** 

Also,  Nov.  20,  1653,  John  White'  signed  petition  for  the  building  of 
a  "come  Mill"  in  Lancaster.  In  1654  he  drew  land  proportioned  to 
;^380;06;02.  In  1655,  20  lots.  June  26,  1658,  he  was  granted 
seven  acres  "neare  the  still  river,"  Feb.  5,  1659,  granted  lot  No.  33. 
(Early  records  of  Lancaster.) 

Joane,  his  wife,  died  in  Lancaster,  May  18,  1654.

He  was  bom  in  England,  I63I;  was  the  only  graduate  at  Harvard 
College  in  1652;  began  preaching  at  Lancaster,  1654;  and  was  or- 
dained in  1660,  being  their  first  settled  minister.  They  were  living  in 
a  garrison  at  Lancaster,  which  stood  sixty  rods  northeast  of  the  present 
residence  of  Hon.  Nathaniel  Thayer,  and  the  site  is  marked  by  a  large 
pine,  when  the  Indians  attacked  the  town  and  captured  Mrs.  R.  and 
her  children.  (A  full  account  will  be  found  in  her  book,  which  is  re- 
printed in  an  appendix  to  this  volume.) 

Mr.  Rowlandson,  after  the  ransom  of  his  wife,  lived  for  a  short  time, 
in  Boston,  then  was  settled  in  Wethersfield,  Conn.,  where  he  d.  Nov.  23, 
1678,  leaving  widow  Maiy  and  two  children.  There  is  now  in  the 
Memorial  Library  at  l^ncaster,  Mass.,  a  sideboard,  or  cupboard,  as  it 
is  called  in  the  inventory  of  Rev.  Mr.  Rowlandson's  estate  at  Hartford, 
Conn.  Itwasbrought  by  John  White  from  England,  1638,  and  probably 
left  in  Wenham,  with  his  daughter  Joanna,  or  son  Thomas,  when  he 
moved  through  the  wood  to  I^ncaster,  in  1652-3.  When  Mary,  their 
sister,  after  her  captivity,  "set  up  housekeeping  with  bare  walls,"  in 
Boston,  there  is  no  doubt  that  they  gave  her  this  piece  of  furniture. 
It  is  said  to  have  been  in  the  Rowlandson  family  for  one  hundred  and 
fifty  years;  and  in  1876,  was  in  the  possession  of  Mr.  J.  W.  Dunlap,  of

Richard  and  Edith  Dodge,  who  came  to  Salem  in  New  England  in 
1638  (see  Dodge  Family),  b.  Feb.  14,  1670,  in  Wenham.  They  ap- 
pear to  have  lived  in  Ipswich,  from  1696  to  1718.  In  .Apr.  1714, 
Joseph  Dodge  "Innholder,"  and  his  wife  Martha,  of  Wenham,  sold  to 
William  Maxey  of  Ipswich  fifty-four  acres  in  Ipswich  with  dwelling 
ihereon  now  occupied  by  said  Maxey.  In  1721,  Joseph  Dodge,  "Inn- 
holder,"  of  Boston  and  wife  Martha  sold  to  Faithful  Bartlett,  shoreman 
of  Marblehead  for  ^430  the  homestead  in  Wenham,  where  he  formerly 
lived.     Essex  Deeds,  Vol.  35,  p.  265,  and  Vol.  38,  p.  139. 

In  1718,  Joseph  Dodge  of  Wenham,  bought  land  at  Portsmouth,

serving.  In  the  history  of  Nottingham,  in  Rockingham  County,  N.  H., 
Joseph  Dodge  appears  as  one  of  1 18  proprietors  to  whom  a  grant  of 
that  town  was  made  May  10,  1722.  By  deeds  recorded  at  Kxeter, 
N,  H.,  it  appears  that  Joseph  Dodge  of  Scarboro,  Co.  of  York,  District 
of  Maine,  Jan.  1,  1738,  for  ^400  sold  to  Samuel  Milliken,  his  son-in-

He  kept  a  public  house  in  Marlboro,  in  1696 ;  and  as  his  bond  shows 
the  spirit  of  the  times,  we  will  give  the  material  portions  of  it,  hoping 
it  may  afford  some  profitable  hints  to  those  who  keep  public  houses  at 
the  present  day.

"  Sir,  I  have  the  Account  of  y  ^  March  &  Return  by  your  letter  of 
the  9'''  Instant  &  Approve  of  your  Proceedings,  tho  I  am  heartily 
grieved  for  the  Death  of  the  poor  Man,  &  wonder  that  so  many  un- 
happy Accidents  of  this  Kind  have  not  been  sufficient  to  warn  our 
People  of  the  Effects  of  such  Indiscretion-  The  Season  being  now 
advanced  for  the  Appearance  of  the  Knemy,  and  it  being  more  likely 
10  meet  with  them  now  than  before,  I  desire  yoii  would  go  out  with 
the  Same  Number  of  Men  &  upon  the  same  Establishm '  which  will  be 
allow'  you  ;  I  should  be  glad  jou  could  immediately  proceed,  &  make 
up  a  Muster  Roll  for  your  two  Mar<:hes  upon  your  Return.  For  m'^'' 
Time  will  otherwise  be  lost  at  this  critical  Juncture.  However  if  you 
must  first  come  to  Town  let  there  be  no  Delay ;  If  any  of  your  men 
are  backward  to  go  out  again  jou  must  enlist  others  to  make  up  your 
number.  I  shall  not  prescribe  any  Rout  to  you,  yon  being  best  able  to 
judge  where  the  Enemy  may  Iw  mett  with  :  Carry  out  as  much  Pro- 
vision as  you  can.  That  so  you  maynt  be  obliged  to  return  \ery  soon  : 
Be  very  silent  &  watchful  on  your  March  St  Ambushments.  I  heartily 
»Lsh  yon  Success,  and  am  your  Serv ' .  W  "■  Dummer.

is  a  journal  of  the  scout  of  Captains  I-ovell  and  White  'when  the  10 
Indians  were  killed,'  February,  1/24  ;  probably  written  by  one  of  the 
Lancaster  soldiers  there  present.  The  minutes  of  the  first  eight  days

in  the  Defence  thereof  against  those  barbarous  Salvages,  not  only 
hazarding  his  life  but  Expending  good  part  of  his  substance  therein, 
as  is  well  known  to  many.  Some  few  Instances  whereof  your  Pet', 
would  humbly  ripresent  to  this  Hon"'  Court.  Vo'.  Pet'',  sd.  hus- 
band altho  he  had  divers  limes  had  the  honour  to  bear  command  yet 
voluntarily  Enlisted  himself  under  the  late  Capt.  lx)vewell,  and  choose 
rather  to  go  as  an  Under  Officer  at  that  time  because  he  would  do 
what  in  him  lay  to  Encourage  others  to  Enlist  and  marched  with  him 
at  the  time  when  they  killed  the  Ten  Indians,  in  which  march  they 
were  out  near  Forty  days.  'I'hen  he  performeii  a  march  to  a  place 
called  Cohosse  on  Connecticut  River  thinking  to  meet  with  the  Enemy 
there  and  came  in  at  Fort  Oummer,  being  out  thirty  (our  days,  tho 
they  missed  of  their  desired  Success;  'I'hen  in  about  Eight  days  time 
he  had  a  Company  raised  and  went  to  Figwacket  to  bury  Capt.  I.ove- 
well  which  he  performed  ina  ^■ery  difficult  season  of  the  year.  Then 
he  went  to  Connecticut  at  his  own  cost  and  charge  to  get  a  Company 
of  Mohege  Indians  in  order  to  go  down  to  St.  Francois  to  take  an 
Indian  fort  there,  but  failing  of  his  aim,  he  returned  home  and  then 
enlisted  a  Company  of  Voluntiers  and  marched  designing  for  a  Fort 
beyond  Pigwackei,  but  was  taken  sick  before  he  got  there,  returned 
home  and  dyed  leaving  your  Pet',  his  bereaved  widow  with  seven 
Children  the  Eldest  about  Fifteen  years  old  and  Four  of  them  very 
young,  &  one  she  then  went  with  who  is  now  living ;  In  all  which  Ser- 
vices your  Petit",  said  husband  cheerfully  underwent  many  hardships 
and  difficulties  for  the  good  of  his  country,  and  was  at  considerable 
Cost  and  Charge,  by  Supplying  those  that  Enlisted  under  hira  with 
necessaries  which  could  not  be  readily  obtainetl  elsewhere,  purely  to 
make  dispatch. 

Now  Forasmuch  as  the  Sickness  of  which  your  I'et ".  husbanti  dyed 
was  in  all  probability  Occasioned  by  means  of  y'  difficulties  he  under- 
went in  the  Publick  Service,  &  that  he  never  in  his  Ufe  time  had  an 
Opportunity  of  asking  your  Hon'*.  Favour  for  his  past  Services  but 
was  taken  away  in  the  Strength  and  vigour  of  his  lite,  without  receiv-

Wenham  where  they  made  their  home  till  1757,  when  he  appears  to 
have  removed  to  Brookfield,  in  Worcester  County,  for  we  find  John 
Dodge,  gentleman  of  Brookfield,  bought  April  27,  1759,  of  Thomas 
Gilbert,  gent.  xr.  of  est.  of  Ebcnczcr  How,  for  ^^33  ;  06  ;  08  four  pieces 
of  land  containing  about  fifty  acres  more  or  less,  with  buildings,  in 
Brookfield.  On  the  same  date  Thomas  Dodge,  cooper  of  Brookfield, 
bought  of  the  same  grantor  for  one  hundred  and  six  pounds,  thirteen 
shillings  and  four  pence,  "silver  money,"  (the  lawful  paper  money 
of  that  day  was  in  bad  credit,)  fifty  acres  more  or  less  with  build- 
ings. On  the  same  dale  each  of  the  above  grantees  gives  a  mortgage 
to  their  cousin  Francis  Dodge  to  secure  him  as  bondsman  for  one  hun- 
dred pounds  each.  In  September  1763,  Capt.  John  Dodge,  gent,  of 
Brookfield  for  fifty  pounds  si\  shillings  mortgaged  to  John  Friend,  gent. 
of  Wenham  forty  acres  and  a  house.  In  1757  he  and  his  wife  Ruth, 
sold  forty  acres  more  or  less  lying  in  Wenham  with  buildings  thereon 
to  George  Dodge  of  Ipswich.  In  March  1767,  John  Dodge,  gent 
renews  the  mortgage  of  the  same  land  for  the  larger  amount  of  one 
hundred  seventeen  pounds  fourteen  shillings  and  his  wife  Ruth  signs 
the  mortgage.  He  seems  to  have  been  a  bricklayer  for  some  years, 
but  later  a  farmer.  Capt.  Dodge  died  November  23,  1778,  while  on 
a  visit  to  Topsfield.  He  was  a  great  grandson  of  William  Dodge, 
who  came  to  Salem  in  1629.     Childreni

JOHN  wHnr.  (>,-> 

MARY*  (149),  b.  id  I^ancaster,  Mar.  31,  1707;  m.  about  1730, 
Thomas,  son  of  Jadge  Joseph  and  Lucy  (Gardner)  Wilder,  b.  in  I^n- 
caster,  Mass.,  1704.  They  settled  in  the  Northeasterly  part  o(  the 
N'ew  Grant  soon  incorporated  as  Leominster  on  the  shore  of  Chauloom 
pond,  DOW  \Mialom  Lake.  I  am  unable  to  obtain  the  dates  of  their 
deaths.  They  are  said  to  have  been  buried  with  several  of  their 
daughters  in  a  small  burial  place  where  some  of  the  early  settlers  were 
ioterred,  now  obliterated,  situated  neai  the  present  schoolhouse  in  Dis- 
trict No.  3,  in  the  northeasterly  part  of  Leominster. 

The  following  is  an  extract  from  a  letter  written  April  7,  1859,  by 
Hon.  David  Wilder  of  North  I.eominster  to  Hon.  Joseph  White  of 
U'illiamstown,  Mass. 

"Through  your  kindness  I  have  received  a  copy  of  The  Historical 
Disconrse  delivered  by  you  at  Charlemont,  June  11,  1855,  and  for 
numerous  reasons,  I  beg  you  to  accept  of  my  sincere  thanks  for  it. 
Martha,  one  of  the  sisters  of  Col.  Jonathan  White,  was  the  third  wife 
of  my  grandfather  David  Wilder  of  Lancaster.  She  was  many  years  a 
widow,  and  in  the  habit  of  making  an  annual  visit  to  my  father's  family 
in  the  days  of  my  youth.  She  used  to  speak  of  Peregrine  White,  as 
her  Ancestor ;  and  it  was  from  her  I  derived  what  I  considered  good 
traditionary  testimony  in  the  case.  But  it  must  be  confessed  that  the 
written  record  in  your  possession  (from  Dea.  James  White's  account 
book)  looks  more  like  the  facts:  and  I  have  made  an  entry  to  that 
effect  in  a  copy  of  the  His.  of  L,  which  I  keep  by  me  for  such  pur- 
poses. Mary,  the  eldest  sister,  married  Thomas  Wilder  of  the  fourth 
generation  from  the  Thomas  who  moved  to  Lancaster  in  1659,  He 
was  one  of  the  early  settlers  here  and  the  grandfather  of  the  Abel 
Wilder  who  represented  the  town  of  Charlemont  in  the  General  Court 

in  1809. P.  S.     Should  you  meet  any  of  my  relatives.  Butlers, 

Carters  or  others,  you  may  tell  them  that  in  twenty-nine  days  more,  my 
years  will  be  four-score ;  and  yet  I  read  and  wrile,  by  day  and  night, 
without  the  use  of  spectacles." 

I  foimd  later  on  the  probate  recordsat  Worcester,  Mass.,  No,  65750, 
Feb.  6,  1771,  Mary  Wilder  petitions  that  her  sons  Thomas  and  Joseph 
be  appointed  administrators  of  the  estate  of  her  late  husband  Thomas 
Wilder  of  I,eominster.

1732,  F.sther,  dau.  of  James  and  Abigail  ((;ardner)  Wilder,  bapL  in 
first  church  in  lancaster.  Mar.  8,  1713.  He  settled  in  the  Northern 
part  of  the  New  (irant,  now  Leominster,  and  was  one  of  the  largest 
land  liolders,  a  man  of  wealth  and  education,  a  gentleman  of  the  old 
school.  In  the  French  and  Indian  war  he  commanded  a  military  com- 
pany and  was  actively  engaged  in  defending  the  town  from  the  attacks 
of  the  savages.  March  29,  1755,  he  was  commissioned  captain  in  the 
Worcester  regiment  of  ('ol.  Ruggles,  which  marched  for  Crown  Point. 
On  the  march  northward  Capt.  White  was  promoted  and  made  major, 
and  before  the  end  of  the  campaign  was  made  lieutenant- colonel. 
Col.  White,  with  regiment,  was  present  at  the  battle  of  Lake  George, 
September  8,  1755,  when  Baron  de  Dieskan  was  defeated  and  taken 
prisoner.  Col.  White  was  ordered  with  his  regiment  to  Take  Champlain. 
He  served  lo  the  end  of  the  war,  was  in  many  battles  and  won  a  high 
reputation  as  a  gallant  and  capable  officer.  He  was  one  of  the  earlier 
proprietors  of  Charlemont,  was  at  a  meeting  January  17,  1753,  and  was 
chosen  one  of  the  officers.  He  cleared  up  a  few  acres,  planted  an 
orchard  and  built  a  house  in  the  south  part  of  what  is  now  Heath,  and 
which  is  believed  to  be  the  house  where  his  son,  Dea.  James,  lived  and 
died.  March  4,  1771,  the  town  of  Charlemont  voted  to  accept  of  the 
land  Col.  Jonathan  White  gave  for  a  burying- place.  After  he  returned 
from  the  war  he  lived  most  of  the  time  in  Leominster,  but  often  pa.ssed 
from  one  town  to  the  other.  On  one  of  these  journeys  he  was  detained 
over  Sunday  at  Deerfield.  He  went  to  meeting  in  the  morning,  in  his 
homespun  frock,  and,  as  he  passed  up  the  aisle  no  pew-door  was  opened 
to  welcome  him  ;  so  he  went  to  the  wood-pile  and  got  a  block  of  wood  ; 
this  he  laid  on  the  floor  near  the  pulpit,  seated  himself  on  it  and 
listened  attentively  to  the  long  sermon.  At  the  noon  recess  the  people 
made  his  acquaintance,  and,  finding  that  his  station  in  life  was  not  so 
humble  as  they  had  at  first  supposed,  treated  him  with  great  respect.

tract  of  wild  land  in  Narragansett  No,  2  (now  Westminster,  Mass.), 
intending  to  take  up  his  abode  there,  but  was  pressed  into  the  British 
senice  in  the  French  and  Indian  war  for  one  year.  At  the  expiration 
of  his  term  of  service,  the  English  officers  refused  to  give  him  and  his 
company  their  discharge,  and  retained  them  against  their  consent. 
They  prepared  themselves  with  snow-shoes,  and  the  whole  company, 
consisting  of  about  sixty  men,  left  the  camp  at  Albany  about  midnight, 
intending  to  cross  the  Green  Mountains  to  Massachusetts.  They  got 
lost,  wandered  several  days  among  the  mountains,  but  finally  found 
Decrfield  River,  which  they  followed  to  Colerainc,  where  they  found 
inhabitants,  after  having  been  out  nine  days  without  provisions,  except 
a  small  dog,  which  they  killed  the  fifth  day,  and  having  the  snow, 
which  was  some  four  deep,  for  their  bed.  Mr.  Baker  reached  home  in 
safety,  and  soon  m.  Mary  Sawyer  of  I^ncaster,  and  settled  in  West-

CHARLES  D.  Bigelow«  (1306),  b.  in  Marlboro,  Mass.,  Feb.  17, 
1823 ;  m.  May  24,  1848,  Eunice  Ann,  eldest  daughter  of  Emerson  and 
Lydia  (Bigelow)  Howe,  b.  in  Marlboro,  Feb.  16,  1831.  Like  many 
of  our  New  England  people,  his  education  was  gained  in  the  district 
schools  of  his  native  town,  and  one  term  at  the  formerly  well  known 
private  school  of  John  E.  Frye,  of  Bolton,  Mass.  In  the  spring  of  1841 
he  learned  the  trade  of  making  sewed  shoes  of  Thomas  Holder  of  Ber- 
lin, and  after  working  about  a  year  at  that  place  he  returned  home,  and 
later  began  work  of  bottoming  sewed  shoes,  taking  out  work  (as  was 
the  practice)  from  some  of  the  manufacturers  in  the  neighboring  towns. 
He  employed  at  one  time  eleven  men  in  a  small  shop.  In  1S44  he 
increased  his  business  and  had  four  gangs  of  men  at  work  in  as  many 
small  shops,  located  in  the  same  school  district.  At  this  time  he  began 
to  do  pegged  work  and  took  his  work  from  the  shop  of  J.  B.  Kimball 
&  Co.,  of  Westboro,  some  eight  miles  distant ;  this  he  continued  until 
1845.  The  winter  of  1845-6  he  attended  a  school  in  Boston.  The 
following  spring  he  again  worked  at  shoemaking,  had  a  shop  built  about 
a  mile  from  the  center,  and  getting  stock  from  shops  in  Millbury  and 
Natick,  he  employed  a  large  force.  In  1847,  with  that  business  enter- 
prise and  energy  which  always  attended  him  throughout  his  life,  he 
built  a  new  shop.  About  this  time  he  began  to  manufacture  shoes  for 
himself,  and  was  the  first  to  employ  Canadian  Frenchmen  in  the  shoe 
shops  in  that  vicinity,  and  with  never  tiring  energy  he  was  constantly 
striving  to  improve  and  increase  his  business  facilities.  In  1852  he 
met  with  his  first  serious  misfortune,  having  his  shop  with  all  its  con- 
tents destroyed  by  fire. 

Nothing  daunted  he  removed  to  New  York  city  and  again  started 
in  the  manufacture  of  shoes,  and  soon  increased  his  business  to 
immense  proportions,  and  during  the  years  of  the  war  was  running 
large  shops  in  the  prisons  of  Sing  Sing,  N.  V.,  Trenton,  N.  J.,  and 
Providence,  R.  I.,  the  penitentiaries  at  Albany  and  Brooklyn,  N.  Y., 
also  a  large  shop  at  Worcester,  Mass.  He  organized  the  Bay  State 
Shoe  &  Leather  Co.,  of  New  York  city,  of  which  he  was  President  for 
many  years,

He  was  a  man  of  great  executive  business  ability ;  as  a  manufacturer 
he  bad  no  superiors  and  but  few  equals.  A  few  years  before  his  death 
he  retired  from  active  business  life  and  turned  his  business  over  to  his 
son,  Charles  E.  He  spent  much  of  his  time  in  travel  and  recreation, 
and  while  temporarily  sojouring  in  Richmond,  Va.,  he  d.  May  19, 1S83,

EDWIN  M.  Bigelow^  (1507),  b.  in  Marlboro,  Mass.,  Mar.  26, 1825 ; 
graduated  at  Harvard  Gollegc  in  the  Class  o(  '46 ;  studied  law  and 
was  admitted  to  the  bar,  and  opened  an  office  in  Boston,  where  he  now

m.  Jan.  22,  18S2,  Lucy  Ann"  (1534),  dau.  of  Thomas  and  PattyS  (Bige-

laide E.  Buck  of  Portland,  Conn. 

Like  most  New  England  boys  his  education  was  confined  to  the 
public  schools,  and  what  they  could  do  for  him  up  to  the  age  of  fifteen, 
when  he  began  the  struggle  for  mastery  with  fate,  by  deliberately  choos- 
ing the  bench  of  the  shoemaker  for  his  start  in  business  life.  The 
^irit  of  the  boy  was  not  much  different  from  that  displayed  in  later 
years,  for  it  was  not  long  before  his  natural  mechanical  and  inventive 
endowments  began  to  carve  for  him  that  lai^er  career  that  finally  won 
for  him  so  high  a.  place  among  his  fellows.  Naturally  his  inventive 
genius  tamed  in  the  direction  of  boot  and  shoe  manufacture,  and  it 
was  not  surprising  that  at  a  comparatively  early  age  he  was  the  acknowl- 
edged inventor  of  the  heel  pressing  and  nailing  machines,  from  which 
he  has  deservedly  won  a  large  fortune.  Of  course  shoe  manufacturing 
was  the  early  dream  of  the  young  mechanic  and  inventor,  and  he  soon 
found  his  way  into  the  active  work  that  this  important  industry  entails. 
His  ventures  were  not  confined  to  Worcester  or  the  State  of  Massa- 
chusetts, for  the  records  place  him  in  Providence,  R.  I.,  in  various 
cities  in  New  York,  New  Jersey,  and  in  Worcester  in  1863.  One  of 
the  daring  acts  of  bis  business  career  was  organizing  the  prison 
labor  of  several  state  prisons,  and  in  an  incredibly  short  time  setting 
hundreds  of  men  at  work  to  supply  the  demands  suddenly  forced  upon 
him.  la  1870  he  withdrew  from  the  active  personal  care  of  manu- 
facturing interests  and  plunged  into  other  equally  absorbing  cares  with 
the  wisdom  and  energy  that  had  hitherto  characterized  him. 

Securing  control  of  the  Worcester  &  Shrewsbury  railroad,  and  a  large 
portion  of  the  real  estate  at  Lake  Quinsigamond,  he  began  at  once  the 
wise  development  of  both,  and  has  already  accomplished  wonders  in 
the  development  of  the  most  lovely  section  of  our  state.  As  president 
of  the  railroad  he  at  once  provided  steel  rails,  newer  and  better  en- 
gines and  cars,  built  a  pretty  station  at  the  lake,  and  with  car  houses

and  gradings  expended  thousands  of  dollars,  every  one  of  which,  in  no 
uncertain  sense,  resulting  in  positive  good  to  the  entire  city.  At  the 
lake  he  has  created  the  charming  village  of  Lake  View,  and  he  has 
made  it  possible  for  any  thrifty  young  man  to  own  a  house  for  himself 
and  dear  ones.  While  busy  with  these  important  enterprises,  he  kept 
others  of  equal  magnitude  well  in  hand.  The  Bullard  Rifle  Company 
of  Springfield,  Mass.,  is  indebted  to  him  for  its  establishment.  The 
Electric  Power  Company  has  him  for  a  strong  arm  to  lean  upon,  and 
the  list  might  be  extended  greatly  in  the  simple  enumeration  of  the 
various  interests  that  claim  his  care  and  attention.  As  a  business  man 
he  has  the  proud  record  of  achieving  whatever  he  undertakes,  and  of 
never  tiring  or  giving  up  until  the  end  is  reached  and  his  purpose 
accomplished.  As  a  man,  the  name  of  H.  H.  Bigclow  will  ever  be 
associated  with  unceasing  efforts  to  help  his  fellows,  and  with  a  per- 
sistent and  unflagging  purpose  to  stand  by  the  unfortunate.  The  right 
to  free  speech  is  sacred  in  his  eyes,  and  to  maintain  it  in  the  person  of 
one  who  was  unjustly  oppressed,  he  did  not  hesitate  a  moment  to 
spend  freely  thousands  of  dollars.  No  man  is  more  generous  to  a  van- 
quished opponent,  revenge  never  enters  into  his  battle  against  wrong ; 
it  is  that  right  should  prevail  he  struggles ;  that  attained,  he  holds  out 
both  hands  in  warm  friendship.  With  Hon.  Edward  L.  David  he  has 
given  the  city  of  Worcester  one  hundred  and  ten  acres  for  a  Lake  Park, 
and  is  a  generous  supporter  of  all  good  enterprises. 

He  consummated  the  largest  real  estate  purchase  ever  made  within 
the  city  proper.  The  vast  tract  of  land  formerly  used  for  railroad  pur- 
poses lying  east  of  Main,  between  Mechanic  and  Foster  streets,  and 
covering  one  hundred  and  fifteen  thousand  square  feet,  he  bought  and 
has  held  inviolate  for  the  purpose  of  erecting  thereon  the  finest  build- 
ing devoted  to  business  purposes,  not  alone  in  this  county  or  state,  but 
in  New  England.  With  the  purchase  of  this  land  there  came  into  his 
hands  the  large  building  known  as  a  skating  rink.  At  that  time  this 
form  of  amusement  was  but  little  enjoyed.  By  a  wise  policy  of  low 
prices,  band  concerts  and  various  attractions  offered  from  time  to  time, 
he  was  able  to  furnish  pleasant  amusement  to  thousands  at  a  cost  that 
whole  families  could  afford  to  pay.  And  from  his  success  in  this  direc- 
tion sprang  the  craze  that  swept  like  a  prairie  lire  throughout  the  land. 
His  only  purpose  in  allowing  the  rink  to  be  run  was  to  give  the  people 
pleasant  amusement  at  a  low  cost. 

As  a  man  of  liberal  and  generous  views,  the  friend  of  all  worthy  en- 
terprises, the  defender  of  the  poor  and  friendless,  the  helper  of  the

218  DESCENDANTS  OF 

JOHN  Dodge«  (2614),  b.  in  Rowley,  Mass.,  May  28,  1748.  Was 
of  Blue  Hill,  Me.,  in  1783,  at  the  time  of  his  marriage  to  Susanna 
Morgan  of  Beverly,  Mar,  13,  1783.  She  was  a  relative  of  Gen. 
Morgan.  She  d.,  date  not  known;  and  he  m.  (2)  Catherine  Galen. 
In  1788  he  left  Beverly,  Mass.,  for  Marietta,  Ohio,  where  he  remained 
in  the  fort  several  months,  then  went  up  the  Muskingum  to  Wolf 
Creek,  to  what  is  now  Walerford,  Ohio,  bought  land  of  the  Ohio 
company,  and  with  Maj.  Haffield  White''  (389),  and  Col.  Robert 
Oliver,  built  the  first  flouring  mill  in  Ohio  in  1789.  A  stone  from 
that  mill  was  exhibited  at  Chicago  in  1893.     On  Mar.  8,  1790,  Thomas 

Wallcut,  CapL  John  Dodge  and  Proctor,  started  on  fool  for 

Massachusetts.  On  the  22d  of  March,  Wallcut  concluded  he  could 
not  keep  up  with  Dodge  and  Proctor,  although  Dodge  carried  his  pack 
of  35  pounds  at  the  rate  of  about  three  shillings  per  one  hundred 
miles,  or  twelve  shillings  to  Philadelphia,  but  as  they  parted,  Wallcut 
paid  only  nine  shillings.  The  condition  of  the  colony  for  two  or  three 
years  after  1791  was  very  serious,  and  the  heroism  of  the  setders  was 
something  very  memorable.  Mrs.  Susanna  Dodge  is  considered  to 
have  been  a  remarkable  woman ;  she  ministered  largely  to  the  com- 
fort and  success  of  the  pioneer  colony.  She  was  actively  useful,  hav- 
ing a  genius  for  finding  means  to  serve  useful  ends.  She  taught  the 
children  before  the  first  teachers  were  employed,  and  yet  with  all  her 
cares  she  found  time  to  keep  a  diary  of  the  events  of  that  isolated 
colony,  and  of  the  long  struggle  with  hostile  Indians.  She  is  said  to 
have  so  won  the  good  will  of  many  of  the  red  men  by  her  kindness  and 
diplomacy;  that  the  few -whom  she  reached  and  whom  she  made 
friends,  were  once  the  means  of  saving  the  whole  settlement  near 
Beverly,  O.,  from  massacre  at  the  beginning  of  the  Indian  War  in

JOHN   WHITE.  221 

WILLIAM  B.  Dodge^  (2633),  b.  in  Rowley,  Mass.,  Sept.  27, 1783  ; 
was  educated  io  Dummer  Academy  at  Byfield,  Mass.,  and  became  a 
very  saccessful  teacher.  In  1804  he  opened  a  successful  private  school 
in  Salem,  Mass.  He  m.  Apr.  9,  1807,  Sarah  Dole  of  West  Newbury, 
Mass.,  b.  Dec.  8, 1781.  On  the  eaUblishment  of  the  North  school  in 
Salem,  in  1807,  he  was  invited  to  take  chaige  of  it,  which  he  accepted, 
serving  as  master  for  twenty-seven  years.  While  comiected  with  this 
school  he  introduced  the  studies  of  geography  and  grammar,  then  taught 
for  the  first  time  in  the  public  schools  of  Salem.  In  the  war  of  1812 
he  was  elected  capt^n  of  a  company  to  guard  the  coast  ol  Salem  and 
vicinity,  and  was  given  the  commission  of  major  before  it  closed. 
Early  converted,  he  lived  an  active  Cliristian  life,  ready  in  every  good 
word  and  work,  and  entered  heartily  into  all  the  reforms  as  they  suc- 
cessively claimed  his  attention  and  support.  From  his  hospitable  home 
sailed  the  first  missionaries  for  Palestine  from  Salem ;  and  here  many 
of  the  temperance  and  anti-slavery  agents  found  a  refuge  in  a  later  day, 
and  from  here  started  many  an  oppressed  slave  on  the  underground 
railway  (or  a  land  of  freedom.  About  the  year  1820,  before  any  relig- 
ious society  had  thought  of  such  a  thing,  he,  at  the  suggestion  of  a 
neighbor,  opened  the  first  Sunday  School  in  Salem,  in  the  North  school- 
bouse.  The  first  reason  of  its  existence  was  to  stop  Sunday  walking 
among  the  young  people,  and  a  general  lack  of  Sunday  observance. 
The  school  was  crowded  and  continued  many  years,  though  only  as  a 
summer  school. 

In  1827  he  was  appointed  chaplain  of  the  Salem  almshouse,  and 
thenceforward  prepared  and  conducted  two  religious  services  in  that 
institutioQ  every  Sabbath,  in  addition  to  his  usual  labors.  In  1842,  he 
gave  up  all  other  employment  to  work  as  an  anti-slavery  agent,  princi- 
pally among  the  churches  of  Massachusetts.  From  his  entrance  into 
Salem,  the  condition  of  the  colored  people  had  excited  his  pity,  and 
by  sympathy,  counsel  and  religious  instruction,  he  had  sought  to  com- 
fort, encourage  and  elevate  them.  He  gained  their  confidence  and 
love,  and  when,  in  1834,  the  colored  school  was  opened,  he  resigned 
his  position  as  principal  of  the  North  school,  to  accept  a  like  position 
in  it,  which,  considering  his  intense  anti-slavery  principles,  was  emi- 
nently proper,  and  his  great  success  justified  the  change.  In  1844,  at 
the  age  of  61,  he  went  to  Milburn,  III.,  and  setUed  among  his  children, 
who  had  purchased  property  there. 

It  was  a  settlement  of  various  nationalities  and  diverse  religious 
views.    A  little  band  of  Christians  had  organized  themselves  into  a

Mr.  Dodge  was  soon  invited  to  preach  for  them.  Proposing  to  spend 
the  rest  of  his  life  in  the  ministry  of  the  gospel,  he  asked  and  received 
ordination  of  the  Fox  River  Association.  In  this  church  he  labored 
till  old  age  compelled  him  to  resign  in  1862.  His  life  was  one  of  lov- 
ing service  to  his  fellow-men,  and  at  a  ripe  old  age  he  died,  sincerely 
mourned  by  the  whole  community.  He  d.  Apr.  1,  1869.  His  widow

MAJ.-GEN. Grenville  M.  Dodge"  (2726), b. in  Putnamville,  Danvers, 
Mass.,  Apr.  12, 1831.  His  time  was  employed  more  in  work  than  study 
in  his  youth,  although  all  his  opportunities  both  day  and  evening  were 
improved.  In  the  winter  of  1S45-6  he  attended  the  academy  at 
Durham,  N,  H.  In  1846  he  entered  Norwich  University  in  Vermont 
and  graduated  in  1850.  In  1851  he  took  his  diploma  from  Capt. 
Partridge's  military  school  in  Norwich,  and  went  immediately  to  Peru, 
III.,  where  for  a  few  months  he  was  engaged  in  city  and  land  surveys. 
He  was  employed  in  making  the  surveys  for  different  railroads  until 
1854,  when  he  moved  to  Council  Bluffs,  Iowa,  and  engaged  in  mer- 
cantile pursuits  and  freighting  upon  the  plains,  sending  the  first  train 
through  to  Denver.  In  Council  Bluffs  he  established  the  banking 
house  of  Baldwin  &  Dodge,  later  merged  in  the  Pacific  National  Bank, 
of  which  he  became  president  After  moving  to  Council  Bluffs,  he 
made  a  claim  on  the  Elkhorn  river  in  Nebraska  and  occupied  it  in 
February,  1855,  but  stayed  there  only  six  months,  the  Indians  obliging 
him  to  return  with  his  family  to  Council  Bluffs.  In  1856  he  organized 
the  Council  Bluffs  Guards  and  was  elected  captain,  and  at  the  break- 
ing out  of  the  war,  tendered  its  services  to  the  governor  of  Iowa,  but 
the  offer  was  declined  because  the  governor  deemed  it  best  not  to 
draw  any  troops  from  the  western  border  of  Iowa,  but  accepted  his  in- 
dividual services  and  sent  him  to  Washington  to  arrange  for  arming 
and  equipping  the  State  troops.  In  this  mission  he  was  remarkably 
successful.  He  was  tendered  a  captain's  commission  in  the  regular 
army,  which  he  declined,  and  was  recommended  in  June,  1861,  by 
Simon  Cameron,  secretary  of  wax  to  Governor  Kirkwood,  for  appoint- 
ment as  colonel  of  the  Fourth  Iowa  Volunteers.  At  the  celebrated 
battle  of  Pea  Ridge,  March  6,  7,  and  8,  1862,  three  horses  were  killed 
and  a  fourth  wounded  under  him,  and  he  was  seriously  wounded. 
For  his  gallantry  he  was  immediately  made  a  brigadier-general  upon 
the  recommendation  of  Major-General  Halleck. 

After  the  fall  of  Vicksburg  in  July,  1863,  "for  gallant  and  meritorious 
services  and  for  extreme  fitness  for  command,  corresponding,  to  the 
increased  rank,"  General  Grant  recommended  him  for  promotion  to

major-general  of  voluateers,  and  it  was  approved  by  H.  W.  Halleck, 
general-in-chief.  Aug.  17,  1663,  he  was  sent  north  on  sick  leave  for 
sixty  days.  A  history  of  his  service  for  his  country  cannot  be  given 
here,  but  is  found  in  her  war  records  and  can  be  read  by  all  with  great 
interest,  also  a  more  extended  account  of  his  labors  may  be  found  in 
the  genealogy  of  the  Dodge  family  of  Essex  county,  Massachusetts,  by 
Joseph  Thompson  Dodge,  to  which  I  am  indebted  for  this  brief  sketch.

NATHAN  P.  Dodge^  (2727),  b.  in  South  Danvers,  Mass.,  Aug.  20, 
1837,  removed  to  Iowa  with  his  father.  In  1855,  the  family  setded 
on  the  Elkhom  river,  twenty-three  miles  northwest  of  Omaha,  then  an 
Indian  country,  and  the  most  western  settlement  short  of  Utah,  north 
of  the  Platte  river.  Abotrt  the  first  of  August,  on  account  of  Indian 
depredation,  they  had  to  abandon  their  farm  and  retire  to  a  log  cabin 
on  the  site  of  the  present  city  of  Omaha.  In  the  spring  of  1856  the 
father,  mother,  and  daughter  Julia,  returned  to  the  farm,  and  the  two 
sons  engaged  in  business  in  Council  Bluffs,  where  they  have  made  their 
homes  ever  since.  Nathan  P.  has  been  a  real  estate  agent  many  years,

education  was  obtained  at  the  district  school  in  New  Boston,  and  in 
New  London  Academy.  Being  the  youngest  son,  he  inherited  the  old 
homestead,  taking  the  care  of  it  from  his  aged  father ;  with  the  charac- 
teristic energy  of  his  ancestors,  he  applied  himself  to  beautifying  and 
improving  it.  In  a  few  years  the  attractions  of  the  great  west  began  to 
be  fett,  and  he  was  about  to  yield  to  their  influence,  having  agreed  to 
sell  the  old  homestead,  when  his  neighbors  and  fellow  church  members 
rose  up  as  one  man  in  remonstrance.  The  appeal  was  so  impressive, 
that  for  years  he  abandoned  his  purpose,  and  continued  his  severe 
labors  on  a  New  Hampshire  farm.  His  sons  arriving  at  maurity  de- 
sired to  embrace  the  larger  opportunities  of  life,  and  forsook  the  old 
home.  In  1868,  he  advertised  his  homestead  and  it  passed  out  of  the 
family.  He  moved  to  New  Ipswich,  N.  H.,  to  give  his  children  the 
advantage  of  Appleton  Academy.  Freed  from  the  cares  of  farm  life, 
he  made  a  trip  to  the  west,  and  being  so  much  impressed  with  its 
beauty,  fertility  and  increasing  advantages,  he  and  his  faithful  wife,  in 
the  fall  of  1869,  bid  farewell  to  their  native  state  and  removed  to  the 
vicinity  of  Webster  City,  Hancock  Co.,  Iowa.  He  entered  with  vigor 
upon  his  new  farm  life,  but  in  about  twelve  years,  upon  the  death  of 
his  wife,  he  gave  up  active  labor  and  has  since  found  a  home  with  his 
youngest  daughter  in  Webster  City,  enjoying  his  declining  years  and 
walking  in  the  faith  of  his  fathers,  cheerfully  awaiting  the  summons  to  a 
higher  life."     Children :

brother  Daniel,  then  of  New  Brunswick,  N,  J,,  postmarked  Harpers- 
field,  O.,  February  5  (1820),  it  is  learned  that  he  was  then  living  in 
Harpersfield,  Ashtabula  County,  in  a  poor  state  of  health  and  a  very 
distressed  state  of  mind  on  account  of  what  appears  to  have  been 
religious  difierences,  but  he  seems  to  have  regarded  his  religion  as  the 
chief  concern  of  life.  We  have  no  date  of  his  marriage  or  name  of  his 
wife,  but  he  gave  the  following  information  about  his  children :  Ten 
were  living,  "poor  and  unlearned,"  "some,  however,  can  read."

DANIEL  Dodge^  (3194),  b.  near  Annapolis,  N.  S.,  Dec.  1,  1775. 
His  father  removed  from  Nova  Scotia  to  Machias,  Me.,  in  1776.  His 
mother  was  a  very  pious  member  of  the  Episcopal  church,  but  soon 
embraced  the  Baptist  faith.  The  son  at  eighteen  was  converted  and 
united  with  the  Baptist  church  of  Woodstock,  Vt.,  and  soon  felt  called 
to  preach  the  gospel.  About  this  time  he  sailed  for  the  West  Indies, 
was  taken  by  the  French,  stripped  of  all  he  h'ad,  and  in  a  state  of 
destitution  he  found  his  way  to  Baltimore,  where  he  m.  Jan.  IS,  1799,

warmly  received  by  Christian  friends,  he  was  induced  to  accept  a 
license  to  preach  from  the  First  Baptist  church.  Rev.  Mr.  Richards, 
pastor ;  was  ordained  in  1801  in  Maryland.  At  the  commencement  of 
his  ministry  he  traveled  much  on  horseback,  success  attending  his 
labors.  After  a  year  or  two  spent  in  this  manner  he  became  pastor  of 
the  First  Baptist  church  in  Wilmington,  Del.  During  the  ten  or 
twelve   years  at  Wilmington,  he   enjoyed   a  remarkable  revival  of

rcligicHi,  extending  throngh  the  place.  He  baptized  259  persons 
there.  He  next  spent  fourteen  years  at  Piscataway,  N.  J.,  1818  to 
1832,  with  success.  Urged  by  friends  and  a  sense  of  duty,  he  went  to 
NewaA,  N.  J.,  in  1832,  to  heal  the  divided  state  of  the  church  there. 
Id  six  years  of  his  ministry  there  he  was  very  successful,  but  his  success 
was  the  cause  of  his  being  called  to  the  Second  Baptist  church,  Phila- 
de^ia.  He  m.  (2)  Feb.,  1831,  I^titia  Mankin,  who  d.  Sept.,  1876,

fifty  yeais,  and  d.  May,  1851,  beloved  by  all  who  knew  him,  Mr. 
Dodge  was  accustomed  to  read  his  Bible  daily  on  his  knees,  and  his 
whole  life  and  conversation  corresponded  with  that  daily  act.  In  the 
estimation  of  the  writer,  there  existed  nowhere  a  more  perfect  model  of 
the  ChristiaD  minister.  In  his  will,  July  16,  1849,  he  gave  certain 
books  to  Gilead  Dodge  of  Washington,  Erie  County,  Pa.,  and  all  other 
property  to  his  wife,  Letitia  Dodge.     Child :

Daniel  Connery,  b.  Dec.  16,  1800.  He  had  been  living  in  the  state 
of  New  Vork  before  marriage,  then  went  to  Nova  Scotia,  and  was 
probably  a  farmer  for  many  years.  In  the  fall  of  1840,  he  went  with 
his  family  to  Newburg,  N.  Y.,  and  to  Massachusetts,  and  was  absent 
two  years.  In  a  letter  dated  Annapolis,  Feb.  8,  1843,  to  his  cousin, 
Rev.  Daniel  Dodge  of  Philadelphia,  he  says :  "  I  still  own  the  greater 
part  of  the  old  homestead  farm  that  was  granted  to  our  grandfather 
Josiah.  Reuben  (his  brother),  sold  his  part  at  the  death  of  our 
father."  His  letter  shows  that  he  was  renting  his  farm  and  living  in 
the  township  of  Annapolis,  that  he  had  no  children  till  about  twenty- 
one  years  after  he  was  married,  and  that  himself  and  wife  were

uncle,  Daniel  Dodge^  (3194),  shows  his  residence  in  '43  and  some 
history  of  his  father's  family : 

"  Pauiyra,  Portage  Co.,  Ohio,  June  24,  1843, 

"  My  Dear  Uncle, — An  opportunity  to  send  a  letter  free  by  Mr. 
Lewis.  Received  yours  of  17th  April,  The  first  I  ever  received  from 
you.  (Dilates  upon  preaching  the  gospel.)  My  brothers  and  sisters 
are  scattered.  Two  brothers  and  two  sisters  live  in  Harpersfield,  Ash- 
tabula Co.  1  was  out  to  see  them  last  week.  Two  brothers  and  two 
sisters  have  gone  to  Pleasant,  Van  Wart  Co.,  in  western  part  of  this 
state.  The  other  two  I  know  not  where,  as  1  have  not  seen  some  oi 
them  for  six  years.     They  are  all  married  and  some  have  large  families. 

"  Religion,  as  it  is  called  in  these  days,  has  been  quite  flourishing 
in  this  section  for  a  few  months  past. 

"  The  Campbellites,  the  Methodists  and  Baptists  have  increased  in 
number  if  not  in  graces.  I  have  baptized  17  in  our  church  the  year 
past,  and  five  in  the  Mount  Union  church.  The  Salem  church  have 
bapt.  72. 

"I  am  in  low  circumstances  (as  to  money).  I  have  been  talking 
of  coming  to  see  you  and  I  think  I  shall  before  long,  as  droveyours  are 
going  from  here  to  your  city  every  season.  I  shall  try  to  obtain  a 
chance  to  come  with  them. 

"  I  expect  a  Brother  Wilson  from  the  church  in  ML  Union,  where  I 
preach  half  the  time ;  will  call  to  see  you  before  long. 

"  I  am  fully  a  Baptist  of  the  old  stamp.  The  Lord  willing,  I 
expect  to  live  and  die  a  Baptist,  although  unworthy  the  name.  Vou 
will  excnse  my  poor  writing  and  worse  spelling,  as  I  have  never  enjoyed 
but  three  months  schooling  in  my  life.  Yours  in  the  hope  of  heaven 
and  in  the  bonds  of  the  Gospel.  Gilead  Dodge."

JOHN  A.  Williams,  A.  M.,  LL.  D."  (3360),  b.  in  Bourbon  county, 
Ky.,  Sept.  25,  1824 ;  m.  1848,  Mary  L.,  dau.  of  Philip  Hathaway  of 
Montgomery  county,  Ky.,  a  representative  of  one  of  the  early  pioneer 
families  of  Virginia.  The  Williams  family  is  of  Welsh  extraction,  and, 
according  to  family  tradition,  descendants  of  Roger  Williams  of  Provi- 
dence, Rhode  Island. 

"  Prof.  Williams  passed  the  opening  years  of  his  life  at  Paris,  Bour- 
bon county,  where  his  earliest  instruction  was  received,  and  at  the  age 
of  fifteen  entered  Bacon  College,  then  located  at  Georgetown,  as  a  stu- 
dent While  in  attendance  at  this  institution  it  was  removed  to  Har- 
lodsbui^,  and  subsequently  became  known  as  the  Kentucky  University, 
from  which  our  subject  graduated  in  1843,  under  the  presidency  of 
Dr.  James  Shannon.  He  subsequently  received  the  degree  of  A.  M. 
from  his  Alma  Mater,  and  later  that  of  LL.  D.  from  the  Masonic  Uni- 
versity of  La  Grange,  Ky.  After  leaving  college  he  entered  on  the 
study  of  law  with  a  view  of  adopting  that  profession,  but  was  prevented 
from  accomplishing  that  purpose  by  the  development  of  a  very  decided 
taste  for  teaching  and  the  discovery  of  serious  needs  in  the  educational 
system  of  the  state.  In  1848  he  took  charge  of  what  was  called  Pros- 
pect Hill  Seminary,  a  boarding  school  for  young  ladies  and  gentlemen 
near  Mt  Sterling,  an  institution  which  became  very  prosperous  under 
his  management,  and  in  which  he  obtained  considerable  distinction  for 
his  original  methods  and  superior  talents  as  a  teacher.  He  soon  after 
established  a  female  college  at  North  Middletown,  in  Bourbon  county, 
known  as  the  Bourbon  Institute,  in  which  he  aimed  to  carry  into  full 
effect  his  advanced  plans  of  education.  In  1851  he  was  urged  to  and 
did  establish  his  institution  at  Columbia,  Missouri,  the  seat  of  the  Mis- 
souri University.  A  liberal  charter  was  granted  by  the  state,  and  under 
the  designation  of  Christian  College  it  was  formally  organized  in  the

Spring  of  that  year.  His  conduct  of  the  school  brought  it  into  popular 
notice  and  universal  popularity,  filling  it  to  oveTflowing  with  young 
ladies  of  the  best  families  in  the  state.  He  presided  over  that  institu- 
tion until  1856,  when  iU  health  and  a  desire  to  return  and  labor  in  his 
native  state  induced  him  to  resign.  In  that  year  he  purchased,  in  con- 
nection with  his  father,  the  property  at  Harrodsbui^,  upon  which  is 
situated  the  celebrated  Greenville  Magnesian  Springs,  and  established 
the  Daughters  College,  which  became  one  of  the  most  successful  insti- 
tutions of  its  kind  in  the  state.  In  1865  President  Williams  was 
appointed  to  the  chair  of  moral  and  mental  philosophy  in  the  Kentucky 
University,  and  afterwards  to  the  presidency  of  the  State  College,  and 
then  to  that  of  the  College  of  Arts  at  Lexington.  The  State  College 
was  organized  at  Lexington  in  1866,  largely  through  the  instrumentality 
of  President  Williams.  The  two  former  positions  he  accepted  and 
filled,  but  declined  the  latter.  In  1868  Prof.  Williams  resigned  his 
position  in  the  University  at  Lexington,  and  returned  to  his  beloved 
pupils  at  Harrodsburg.  Soon  its  halls  were  filled.  He  was  one  of  the 
original  movers  in  the  organization  of  the  State  Teachers'  Association, 
has  contributed  extensively  to  various  literary  and  religious  periodicals, 
and  delivered  many  addresses.  His  life  of  Elder  John  Smith  is  a  well 
known  and  standard  volume.  His  most  important  work,  however,  will 
be  the  one  on  Christian  Ethics,  now  in  course  of  preparation.  He 
has  also  occasionally  been  induced  to  occupy  the  pulpits  of  various 
churches,  both  in  and  out  of  his  own  denomination. 

"  He  is  a  Mason  of  high  degree,  and  of  national  reputation  as  a 
pleasant  and  orthodox  expounder  of  the  principles  of  the  order. 
While  resting  from  his  arduous  professional  labors  he  was  induced  to 
accept  the  Grand  lectureship  for  the  State  of  Kentucky,  which  position 
he  filled  for  two  years  with  much  profit  to  the  craft.  He  is  a  man  of 
fine  tastes,  has  a  great  fondness  for  poetry,  literature  and  art;  of  genial 
and  attractive  presence,  kindly  nature  and  grcady  esteemed  and 
respected  by  his  associates  and  pupils,  as  well  as  by  the  community  at 
large." — From  the  Kentucky  Craftsman.

tionaiy  army,  returned  and  setded  at  Amherst,  where  he  married  and 
they  afterward  made  their  home.  He  d.  in  Amherst,  Nov.  18,  1840. 
Mrs.  Anah  (Bathrick)  Goss,  having  attained  much  greater  age  than 
any  other  known  descendant  of  this  family,  will  give  interest  to  a  part 
of  the  various  notices  furnished  which  relate  thereto. 

Visrr  TO  A  Centenarian. — The  I04th  birthday  of  Mrs.  Anah  Goss  of 
this  place  occurred  today,  but  your  correspondent  knowing  her  great 
regard  for  the  strictest  observance  of  the  Sabbath,  paid  her  a  birthday 
visit  on  Saturday  afternoon.  We  found  her  sitting  quietly  by  the  fire 
in  an  easy  chair,  which  she  politely  offered  to  vacate  for  us;  her 
appearance  being  that  of  a  "smart  old  lady  of  seventy,"  cheerful  and 
happy.  In  conversation  with  her  we  found  that  her  memory  was  good 
pertaining  to  events  that  transpired  in  her  childhood  and  early  woman- 
hood, but  failed  to  recall  matters  of  recent  date.  In  alluding  to  the 
snow  storm,  which  at  that  time  seemed  undecided  whether  to  yield  to 
the  sun  or  to  continue  in  the  mild  way  which  had  given  us  but  three 
inches  in  twenty  hours,  she  remarked  that  these  storms  weie  "  not 
much  like  old-fashioned  snow  storms."  She  remembered  one,  some 
eighty-five  years  ago,  "when  her  husband  found  the  snow  one  morning 
above  the  top  of  the  door,  and  nearly  to  the  eaves  of  the  house,  and 
was  obliged  to  tunnel  through  to  the  street."  As  an  instance  of  her 
earliest  recollections,  she  narrated  very  feelingly  the  circumstances  of 
the  death  of  her  little  brother,  Stephen,  ninety-eight  years  ago,  she  then 
being  six  years  old  and  he  some  two  years  younger.  She  remarked 
that  "  the  dear  little  fellow  would  refuse  to  take  his  medicine  except 
sister  Anah  brought  it  to  him,"  She  also  remembered  the  circum- 
stance of  the  death  of  her  father,  which  occurred  away  from  home,  of 
small-pox,  when  she  was  quite  young.  He  desired  to  go  home,  and  a 
hoise  was  brought  to  him  and  he  mounted  it,  but  was  too  weak  to  ride. 
She  also  remembers  the  collection  of  soldiers  in  1775,  as  that  year  they 
marched  so  near  her  house  with  fife  and  drum. 

Some  days  ago  she  called  her  daughter,  Mrs.  Wilcox,  who  lives  with 
her  and  makes  her  every  care  and  want  her  study,  and  said  to  her ; 
"Now,  Elizabeth,  you  know  that  my  birthday  this  year  comes  on  the 
Lord's  day,  and  as  His  days  are  so  much  better  than  any  of  my  days,  I 
want  you  to  write  to  our  friends  not  to  visit  us  on  the  Sabbath,  but  to 
come  Saturday."  Her  daughter  of  course  complied,  quoting  her 
mother's  remarks,  and  the  usual  visit  from  friends  upon  the  anniversary 
of  her  birth  will  occur  probably  to-motrow,  the  storm  of  Saturday

preventing  it  then,  among  whom  are  ex-Mayor  P.  C.  Cheney  and  wife 
o(  Manchester,  Mrs.  Cheney  being  a  granddaughter  of  this  venerable 
woman. 

The  health  of  Mrs.  Goss  seems  good,  generally  speakii^,  but  she  is 

growing  constantly  weaker  and  more  inclined  to  sleep,  while  her  mind 
has  failed  considerably  the  past  year.  She  reads  the  newspapers  some, 
preferring  those  with  large  type,  though  we  noticed  upon  her  table  the 
Weekly  Journal.  She  does  not  approve  of  female  suffrage,  and  says 
she  should  not  consider  herself  old  enough  to  vote  if  she  was  allowed  so 
to  do. — From  the  Boston  Journal. 

The  Amherst  Cabinet  says:  "The  105th  birthday  of  Mrs.  Anah 
Goss  of  this  town,  now  the  oldest  person  in  the  state,  was  made  the 
occasion  of  a  family  re-union  on  Monday,  1st  There  were  present, 
Mr.  and  Mrs.  White,  the  latter  a  daughter  of  Mrs.  Goss,  aged  79  years ; 
Mrs.  Wilcox,  a  daughter  who  lives  with  Mrs.  Goss;  Hon.  Person  C. 
Cheney  and  wife  of  Manchester,  the  latter  a  granddaughter ;  Josiah 
Laselle,  Esq.,  and  wife  of  Manchester,  Mrs.  Laselle  being  a  granddaugh- 
ter; and  Miss  Elizabeth  Whitney  of  Boston,  also  a  granddaughter. 
Mrs.  Goss,  although  gradually  failing  in  mind  and  body,  was  able  to  be 
about  the  house  and  enjoy  the  visit  of  her  friends.  She  sat  at  the 
table,  saying  grace,  as  is  her  usual  custom.  Her  eyesight  has  failed 
considerably  within  the  last  year,  so  that  she  now  reads  nothing  but 
her  Bible,  and  occasionally  the  large  type  in  the  advertising  columns  of 
the  papers." 

"  Death  of  a  Centenarian. — Mrs.  Atiah  Goss,  the  oldest  person 
in  the  state,  died  at  Amherst,  N.  H.,  on  Saturday  morning,  March  20, 
at  the  venerable  age  of  one  hundred  and  five  years,  one  month  and 
nineteen  days.  Her  decease  was  neither  sudden  nor  unexpected. 
Some  three  or  four  weeks  since  she  took  a  cold  which  afiected  her 
lungs  considerably,  but  it  was  hoped  that  she  might  recover  from  it, 
though  it  so  prostrated  her  that  she  could  not  rally. 

"Mrs,  Goss  was  the  daughter  of  Stephen  Bathrick  of  Lunenburg, 
Mass.,  where  she  was  born  Feb.  1,  1770.  She  came  to  Amherst  in 
1785,  then  being  fifteen  years  of  age,  and  one  year  later  married 
Ephraim  Goss,  a  soldier  returned  from  the  war,  with  whom  she  lived 
fifty-four  years,  till  his  decease  in  1840,  and  by  whom  she  had  ten  chil- 
dren, seven  daughters  and  three  sons,  two  daughters  being  still  alive —

wants  in  her  decliniog  years.  Three  granddaughters  survive  her — one 
the  estimable  wife  of  Hon.  P.  C,  Cheney  of  Manchester,  who  for  years 
has  left  nothing  undone  that  would  contribute  to  the  comfort  or  pleasure 
of  the  deceased ;  Mrs.  Josiah  Laselle  of  Manchester  and  Miss  Elizabeth 
Whitney  of  Boston. 

"  The  deceased  retained  her  faculties  in  a  remarkable  degree  until 
within  a  year  or  two,  since  which  time  her  memory  failed  her,  and  also 
her  eyesight,  preventing  her  reading  anything  except  her  Bible,  which 
she  always  made  a  daily  study.  She  was  for  over  four  score  years  a 
member  of  the  Congregational  church  in  this  town,  and  gave  all  her 
children  to  the  Lord  by  baptism  in  their  infancy.  She  was  among  the 
last  Revolutionary  pensioners  in  the  country,  her  husband  having  been 
a  lifer  in  that  war."

Colby,  son  of  Moses  and  Abigail  (Morrison)  Cheney,  b.  in  Holdemess, 
DOW  Ashland,  N.  H.,  Feb.  25,  1828.  Mrs.  Cheney  has  been  a  leader 
in  Manchester  society  for  years,  and  both  her  public  and  private  chari- 
ties are  numerous.  She  has  been  for  several  years  president  of  the 
Woman's  Aid  and  Kelief  Society  of  Manchester,  N.  H. 

Mr.  Cheney  was  educated  in  the  academies  at  Peterboro,  Hancock, 
N.  H.,  and  ParsonsheJd,  Me.  His  father  being  engaged  in  the  manu- 
facture of  paper,  he  early  became  acquainted  with  the  details  of  the 
business,  and  in  1845  assumed  the  management  of  the  paper  mill  at 
Peterboro.  In  1853  he  became  a  member  of  the  firm  of  Cheney, 
Hadley  &  Going. 

Mr,  Cheney  early  became  interested  in  politics,  and  represented  the 
town  of  Peterboro  in  the  legislature  in  1853  and  1854.  He  entered 
ardently  into  the  events  of  1860  and  1861,  and  zealously  aided  and 
promoted  the  preparation  of  his  state  for  the  great  struggle  to  maintain

the  Union.  In  due  time  he  oHered  his  personal  services,  and  in 
August,  1862,  he  was  appointed  quartennaster  of  the  13th  regiment, 
New  Hampshire  Volunteers,  Col.  A.  F.  Stevens.  In  January,  1863,  he 
was  seriously  ill,  and  after  three  months'  sickness  was  compelled  to 
resign,  but  he  sent  a  substitute  to  the  service.  He  was  railroad  com- 
missioner for  three  years.  In  1866  he  removed  to  Manchester,  N.  H., 
and  became  a  dealer  in  paper  stock  and  manufacturers'  supplies.  He 
also  engaged  in  paper  manufacture  at  Goffstown,  N.  H.,  in  the  firm  of 
Cheney  &  Thorpe.  He  is  now  at  the  head  of  the  P.  C.  Cheney  Com- 
pany. 

Shortly  after  coming  to  Manchester  he  became  prominent  in  the 
Republican  party  and  was  elected  mayor  in  1871,  one  of  the  marked 
features  of  his  successful  administration  being  the  introduction  of  the 
fire  alarm  telegraph  system.  He  declined  a  renomination,  but  was 
chosen  governor  in  1875  and  1876,  wresting  the  state  from  the  Demo- 
cratic party.  In  1872  he  was  elected  a  trustee  of  Bates  College,  and 
founded  a  scholarship  in  that  institution.  At  the  close  of  his  guber- 
natorial service,  Dartmouth  College  conferred  upon  him  the  degree  of 
A.  M.  In  Dec,  1892,  he  was  appointed  envoy  extraordinary  and 
minister  plenipotentiary  to  Switzerland,  at  which  post  he  remained 
until  June  29,  1893.  He  was  one  of  the  directors  of  the  Peterboro 
Bank,  and  has  been  president  of  the  Peoples  Savings  Bank  of  Man- 
chester since  its  organization  in  1874.     Child :

moved to  Hanover,  III,  in  1850.  In  the  winter  of  1858  and  1859,  he 
was  one  of  a  paity  of  "Pathfinders,"  who  made  the  first  trail  across  the 
plains  (then  occupied  by  Indians  and  bufialo),  by  compass  from 
Leavenworth,  Kan.,  to  the  Rocky  mountains,  on  the  route  now  used  by 
the  Union  Pacific  railroad  to  Denver,  Colo.  When  about  three  hun- 
dred miles  from  the  last  settlement  the  party  lost  the  most  of  their 
teams  b>'  a  raid  by  the  Cheyenne  Indians.  Mr.  White  and  ten  com- 
panions started  for  the  mountains  on  foot,  subsisting  on  horse  meat, 
crows,  prairie  dogs,  etc.,  and  part  of  the  way  without  blankets,  exposed 
to  many  snow  storms  and  blizzards,  arriving  in  a  nearly  starved  con- 
dition, at  what  is  now  Denver  city,  in  April,  1859.  He  m.  in  1859,

Conroy  House,  Balyleck,  Ireland.  The  original  Montgomerys,  who 
settled  in  Ireland,  having  received  from  the  crown  a  very  large  grant 
of  land  in  Ireland  on  going  there  from  England,  the  family  can  be 
traced  back  to  the  year  900,  when  Richard  Mon^omcry  went  to  Eng-

at  Hanover,  N.  H. ;  entered  Columbian  College,  D.  C,  where  he  spent 
Freshman  year ;  entered  WaterviUe  College  (now  Colby  University)  in 
1824  as  Sophomore,  and  graduated  the  third  in  rank  in  the  class  of 
1827.  In  May,  1829,  he  accepted  a  call  to  the  pastorate  of  the  Bap- 
tist church  in  West  Plattsburg,  N.  Y.,  where  he  was  ordained  in  Feb- 
ruary, 1830.  He  mairied  at  West  Plattsburg,  Jan.  13,  1830,  Ann 
Eliza  Beckwith.  Though  of  delicate  health  all  her  life  she  was  a  most 
efficient  helper  of  her  husband  and  a  capable  manager  of  the  house- 
hold, as  well  as  a  devoted  Christian.  It  was  her  pride  to  be  a  descend- 
ant of  Rc^er  Williams.  She  d.  at  Columbus,  Wis.,  Nov.  3, 1878,  aged 
63  years. 

He  was  employed  as  missionary  in  the  counties  of  Clinton,  Essex 
and  St.  Lawrence,  N.  Y.,  in  1831-32.  Was  pastor  at  Farmersville, 
N.  v.,  in  1833;  at  Greene,  N.  V.,  in  1834-36.  In  the  autumn  of 
1836  he  became  the  pastor  of  a  new  church  at  Fort  Covington,  N.  Y. ; 
became  pastor  at  Parma,  N.  Y.,  in  October,  1839,  and  at  Newton  Falls, 
Ohio,  in  March,  1841.  He  removed  to  Garretsville,  Ohio,  in  1842  ; 
accepted  a  call  to  return  to  his  first  church  in  Plattsburg,  N.  Y.,  in 
1844.  His  health  failing  in  1847,  he  was  able  to  preach  only  occa- 
sionally for  several  years,  and  was  finally  obliged  to  give  up  all  labor. 

He  was  a  man  of  clear  intellect,  poetical  imagination,  generous  heart, 
modest  and  retiring  manners,  and  earnest  Christian  spirit.  He  was  a 
good  classical  scholar,  fond  of  study,  and  of  marked  literary  tastes. 
He  commanded  respect  and  love  in  his  home  and  parish.  As  a  result 
of  his  first  year's  work,  over  seventy  members  were  added  to  his  church 
in  Plattsburg.  Similar  success  attended  his  labors  in  other  pastorates. 
While  devoted  to  the  ministry,  he  also  took  a  deep  interest  in  national 
affairs,  followed  current  events  closely,  and  threw  himself  with  ardor 
into  the  anti-siavery  cause.  In  person  he  was  of  good  size  and  propor- 
tion, of  a  florid  complexion,  but  with  dark  hair  and  eyes.  He  d.  at 
Schuyler  Falls,  Nov.  1 1,  1866.     Children :

SALLY  Dodge^  (3453),  b.  in  Hanover,  N.  H.,  Dec.  6,  1805 ;  m. 
July  — ,  1839,  Laban  Chandler.  Among  the  several  children  of  Daniel 
Dodge,  Sally  deserves  special  mention  for  her  kind,  gentle,  even  dis- 
position, pleasing  countenance  and  manners,  and  the  unselfish  consid- 
eratencss  which  she  shoved  for  all.  In  a  marked  degree  she  possessed 
weight  of  character,  and  exerted  a  decided  influence  in  the  home,  the 
church,  and  the  community ;  at  the  same  time  she  was  of  so  mild  a 
type  as  to  win  a  general  esteem  and  love.  She  d.  at  Enfield,  N.  H., 
Mar.  1,  1893,  at  the  good  age  of  87. 

JOHN  W.  Dodge'  (3457),  b.  in  Hanover,  N.  H.,  Sept.  4,  1815; 
m.  July  1,  1855,  Mrs.  Clementine  C.  Whipple,  b.  Nov.  12,  1818.  He 
lived  on  the  old  homestead  till  1847,  when  he  went  into  a  store  in 
Hanover  as  clerk,  and  subsequently  engaged  in  trade  on  his  own 
account  for  about  fifteen  years.  He  then  engaged  in  manufacturing 
flannels  in  Enfield,  N.  H.  In  1883  he  became  one  of  the  owners  of  a 
factory  at  Bristol,  N.  H.,  which  became,  in  1887,  the  property  of  a 
corporation  under  the  name  of  the  Dodge-Davis  Manufacturing  com- 
pany, with  a  capital  of  1150,000.  Since  that  time  he  has  retired  from 
active  business  and  resides  at  Entield,  N.  H.  Mr.  Dodge  bears  the 
reputation  of  a  strong,  kind,  efficient  man,  of  great  modesty  and 
inflexible  integrity.  Though  starting  with  nothing  of  his  own,  and 
with  some  inherited  obligations  to  discharge,  he  has  by  business 
sagacity  built  up  one  of  the  best  woolen  mills  in  New  England.  As  a 
public-spirited  citizen  he  is  held  in  high  estimation  in  his  town  and 
state.  Though  a  pronounced  Democrat,  he  has  more  than  once  been 
sent  to  the  legislature  from  a  district  strongly  Republican.  With  a 
characteristic  recognition  of  family  obligations  and  pride  in  the  family 
name,  he  has  used  his  large  property  generously  for  the  benefit  of 
relatives  less  fortunate  than  himself.  He  is  a  man  of  over  average 
stature  and  weight,  with  brown  eyes  and  dark  complexion  and  hair.

30;  m.  int.  pub.  Mar.  27,  1752,  with  Elizabeth  Warren  of  Wenham. 
She  is  said  by  a  descendant  to  have  been  a  sister  or  a  niece  of  Gen. 
Joseph  Warren.  The  records  of  Essex  and  Worcester  counties  fail  to 
show  that  he  owned  land  in  either  county,  but  he  was  a  resident  of 
BrookReld  in  1770,  when  the  probate  court  of  Worcester  county 
appointed  Jonathan  Dodge  of  Ipswich  guardian  of  his  children,  as 
named  below.  I'he  file  of  papers  in  the  case  does  not  call  Abraham, 
deceased,  nor  does  it  disclose  the  reason  for  a.  guardian  being  appointed. 
A  descendant  says  he  was  a  "trooper"  in  the  Revolutionary  war. 
This  is  confirmed  by  the  Revolutionary  Archives  of  Massachusetts,

you  once  in  a  while,  by  our  nephew,  son  of  our  Brother  Oliver,  I

live.  It  is  a.  fine  part  of  the  world  to  live  in,  it  won't  take  you  all  the 
time  get  wood  &  feed  youi  cattle,  there  is  land  enough  to  be  had 
on  good  terms,  if  you  will  come,  I  will  Rnd  you  land  to  tend  as  lor^  as 
you  please  to  tend  it.  I  will  find  you  plenty  to  eat  for  one  year.  My 
wife  says  come,  the  children  say  come  &  God  saith  come  out  from 
among  them,  you  can  make  cotton  a  plenty,  flax  groweth  well,  sheeps 
wool  is  cheap ;  a  fine  place  for  peaches  and  apples ;  all  kinds  of 
garden  truck  groweth  well,  this  part  of  the  world  is  not  more  sickly 
than  where  you  live.  It  is  belie^'ed  if  any  come  to  the  southard,  they 
will  die.  The  reason  is  because,  when  they  come  they  say  the  water 
is  so  bad  for  fear  the  water  should  make  them  sick  they  take  so  much 
ardent  spirit  that  it  kills  some  thai  &  other  dissipations,  any  person 
that  believes  in  Go<l,  date  not  say  that  he  will  punish  anybody  for 
going  to  any  part  of  the  world  to  get  a  comfortable  living.  I  want  you 
to  write  as  soon  as  you  get  this  &  say  you  will  come  this  fall.  If 
you  come  by  water  to  Savannah  I  will  find  some  way  to  get  you  up  the 
country,  but  if  you  tlon't  like  to  come  by  water  get  you  a  little  wagon 
one  or  two  horses,  you  can  come  in  six  or  seven  weeks.  Start  the  first 
of  September,  it  will  be  a  fine  lime  for  man  &  horses,  take  your  bed 
and  cloth,  a  small  pot,  a  teakettle  &  coffee  pot.  Your  wagon  will  sell 
for  more  here  than  it  cost  there,  so  you  will  get  the  loan  of  it  for  naught. 
If  that  part  was  as  much  better  to  live  in  as  this  is  better  than  that  I 
would  take  my  bundle  on  my  back  &  walk  there.  As  I  can't  be  with 
you,  God  be  with  you  is  the  prayer  of  your  brother,

Al&y  7,  1761,  Lydia,  dau.  of  Samuel  and  Lydia  (Lee)  Masters.  They 
lived  for  a  time  in  Wenham,  but  removed  to  Danvers,  Mass.,  before 
1787.  He  is  therefore  quoted  in  histoiy  as  a  native  of  Danvers. 
From  the  "  Lexington  Alarms,  vol.  13,  p.  38,"  I  find  Hafheld  White 
with  rank  of  private  on  the  Lexington  Alarm  roll  of  Capt.  Billy  Porter's 
company  and  Col.  John  Baker's  regiment,  which  marched  on  the 
alarm  of  April  19,  1775,  from  Wenham,  to  which  town  the  soldier 
belonged.  In  eight  months  service,  "vol.  18,  page  87,"  I  find  Haffield 
White  with  rank  of  second  lieutenant  on  muster  roll  of  CapL  Ebenezer 
Francis'  company  and  Col.  Mansfield's  regiment,  dated  Aug.  1,  1775. 
Time  of  enlistment,  April  26,  1775 ;  time  of  service,  three  months  and 
thirteen  days.  Belonged  in  Wenham.  "Worcester  Roll,  vol.  50,  file 
1,"  Haflield  White  appears  with  rank  of  captain  on  muster  roll  of  the 
Geld  and  staff  officers  of  the  5th  Massachusetts  regiment.  Col.  Rufus 
Putnam,  for  January,  1781,  garrison  at  West  Point,  appointed  January 
1,  1777,  reported  furloughed  to  April  1,  1781.  The  above  is  found 
on  the  Massachusetts  Archives,  in  the  State  House,  in  Boston,  with 
many  other  references  to  Maj.  White,  and  in  Hildreth's  "Lives  of  the 
Early  Settlers  of  Ohio,"  1852,  we  find  the  following : — 

"Maj.  Haffield  White,  native  of  Danvers,  Mass.,  (Wenham).  A 
lieutenant  in  company  of  minute  men,  April  19,  1775,  followed  the 
retreating  Britons  from  Concord,  and  fired  on  them  from  behind  stone 
walls,  lost,  8  killed  from  his  company.  Soon  afterwards  commissioned 
captain,  raised  a  company  of  men  and  was  a  most  efficient  officer  at 
the  crossing  of  the  Delaware,  and  at  the  battle  of  Trenton.     Many  of

his  men  being  sailors  and  being  useful  in  manning  the  boats  to  cross 
the  army.  He  was  with  Gen.  St  Clair  at  Ticonderoga  and  under  Col. 
Francis  fought  manfully  at  batde  of  Hubbardstown,  thereby  checking 
the  British  troops  and  enabling  the  Americans  to  reach  Stillwater  and 
form  the  nucleus  of  that  army  which  soon  afterward  conquered 
Burgoyne,  and  turned  the  tide  of  conquest.  He  was  engaged  in  many 
of  the  battles  preceding  this  overthrow,  and  shared  in  the  glories  and 
triumphs  of  Saratoga,  Oct.  13,  1777.  At  the  retreat  from  Ticonderoga 
he  was  pay-master  of  the  regiment  and  in  that  disaster  lost  a  targe 
sum  of  money,  which  was  not  allowed  by  the  United  States. 

"  When  Col.  Pickering  took  charge  of  the  commissary  department  of 
the  army,  being  acquainted  with  the  integrity  and  activity  of  Capt. 
White,  living  in  the  same  town,  he  was  selected  for  one  of  his  assis- 
tants, and  remained  in  that  branch  of  the  service  until  the  close  of  the 
war,  when  he  wa^  made  major." 

We  find  Haffield  White's  name  as  one  of  the  original  members  of 
the  Society  of  the  Cincinnati,  on  page  510  and  page  540,  in  the 
"Memorial  of  the  Massachusetts  Society  of  the  Cincinnati." 

"At  the  formation  of  the  Ohio  company  he  became  one  of  the  pro- 
prietors, and  was  appointed  by  the  directors,  commissary  and  con- 
ductor of  first  detachment  of  pioneers  which  left  Danvers  in  December, 
1787. 

"On  their  arrival  at  Marietta  he  was  continued  as  their  steward  for 
the  first  year,  when  that  office  was  no  longer  needed.  His  son 
Pelatiah  was  one  of  the  48  who  landed  from  the  'Mayflower'  at 
Marietta  on  April  7,  1788.  In  1789  he  engaged  with  Co!.  Oliver  and 
Capt.  Dodge  (2614)  in  erecting  mills  on  Wolf  Creek.  When  war  with 
the  Indians  began,  he  left  and  came  to  Marietta  and  remained  until 
after  the  peace  of  1795.  He  then  resumed  his  possessions,  a  farm 
near  the  mills,  now  Waterford,  and  lived  with  his  son  until  his  death. 

"  In  person  Maj.  White  was  below  medium  size,  thick  set  and  robust. 
Very  active  and  brisk  in  his  motions,  prompt  to  execute  business  in 
most  expeditious  manner.  Complexion  florid,  and  sanguine  tempera- 
ment.    A  brave  soldier,  and  a  very  useful  and  industrious  citizen." 

From  "Pioneer  History,"  by  S.  P.  Hildrcth,  1848. 

"A  party  consisting  of  22  men,  under  command  of  Capt.  White, 
assembled  at  Danvers,  Mass.,  in  December,  1787.  They  included 
boat  builders  and  mechanics.  Toward  last  of  January,  1788,  Major 
White  and  par^  reached  his  destination  on  the  Yohiogany  River  at

Sumrills  Feiry,  about  30  miles  above  Pittsbiugh.  The  surveyor  and 
remainder  of  the  pioneers  assembled  at  Hartford,  Conn.,  early  in  Janu- 
ary, 178S,  and  commenced  their  march  under  command  of  Gen.  Put- 
nam, aided  by  Col.  Ebenezer  Sprout.  They  arrived  at  Sumrills  Ferry 
in  the  middle  of  February,  and  on  account  of  the  uncommon  severity 
of  the  weather  little  progress  had  been  made  in  building  the  boats. 
By  April  2d  the  large  boat  was  ready  and  the  company  left  in  the  after- 
noon of  that  day.  The  '  Adventure  Galley,'  as  she  was  called,  was 
afterwards  named  the  'Mayflower.'  She  was  45  feet  long  and  12  feet 
wide,  estimated  burthen  50  tons.  A  flat  boat  and  three  canoes  were 
added  to  the  flotilla.     Landed  at  Marietta,  7lh  April,  1788." 

From  the  family  of  Major  White  I  receive  the  following : — 
Major  Hafheld  White  and  his  sons,  Pelatiah  and  Josiah  White,  are 
among  the  48  names  inscribed  on  the  granite  monument  which  is

from  Marietta.  He  once  commanded  the  outposts  there,  and  he,  in

woods  by  marked  trees,  with  no  other  conveyance  than  an  ox-sled  and 
a  pillion  for  his  wife  and  five  children.  He  took  up  his  abode  in  the 
outskirts  of  an  unbroken  forest.  Years  of  hard  labor  followed,  which  at 
length  brought  to  him  and  his  family  the  comfort  of  a  niial  home.  He 
built  the  first  mill  in  Pittsfield,  and  the  place  where  it  stood  is  now

the  first  one  in  Pittsfield  to  take  work  and  employ  others  in  the  making 
of  shoes.  Taking  his  work  from  Epping  he  employed  his  neighbors, 
who  wished  to  do  something  else  in  connection  with  fanning.  As  their 
pay  came  due,  Mr.  White  would  advance  the  money,  expcctii^  to 
receive  it  again  from  his  employer,  when  he  suddenly  left  the  country, 
and  Mr.  White  was  obliged  to  mor^^e  his  farm  in  order  to  pay  his 
help,  which,  with  his  large  family,  kept  him  for  many  years  in  hard 
circumstances ;  but,  though  in  humble  life,  he  was  ever  an  honorable, 
industrious  and  strictly  temperate  man,  and  very  active  even  in  his  old

of  great  personal  activity  and  tact  in  business.  He  d.  at  Schoolcraft, 
Mich.,  at  his  daughter  Mary's.  In  the  fall  of  1813,  the  spotted  fever 
appeared  in  Pittsfield,  and  Mr.  White's  family  were  very  much  afflicted 
by  it,  and  the  following  was  printed  in  a  little  book  at  that  time  : 

"A  faithful  narrative  of  the  sayings,  or  dying  words  of  Eliza  White, 
daughter  of  Mr.  Jeremiah  White  of  Pittsfield,  aged  six  years,  nine 
months  and  nineteen  days,  who  departed  this  life  April  20th,  1814, 
after  an  illness  of  three  days  of  the  spotted  fever. 

"The  day  before  she  died,  she  appeared  to  lie  in  a  state  of  insen- 
sibility for  some  time,  and  it  was  thought  by  the  bystanders  that  she 
never  would  speak  again.  At  length,  being  aroused  from  that  state, 
like  one  awakened  from  sleep,  she  called  her  friends,  and  addressed 
them  severally  in  the  following  words  ; 

"She  asked  Betsey  Gerrish,  who  was  standing  by  the  bed,  'if  she 
was  willing  to  die.'  To  her  brother  Samuel,  she  addressed  herself  thus : 
'Von  must  die  and  I  hope  you  will  go  to  Jesus.'  Taking  him  by  the 
right  hand,  she  said,  'I  hope  I  shall  meet  you  at  the  right  hand  of 
Jesus ;'  and  told  him  '  not  to  mourn  (or  her,  for  she  should  be  better  off 
than  to  be  here,' 

"To  her  Sir,  she  said  :  'Do  not  mourn  for  me,  mourn  for  yourself. 
1  hope  I  shall  meet  you  in  Heaven ;'  and  asked  him  '  if  he  felt  willing  to 
die,'  and  said,  'Sir,  don't  live  wickedly ;'  and  said  'she  could,  after  her 
death,  bear  to  have  the  nails  driven  upon  her  that  is  in  her  coffin,"  To 
her  mother,  she  said,  taking  her  by  the  hand,  'Can  you  forgive  me  ?

had  promised  she  would  not  mourn  more  than  she  could  help. 

"To  her  aunt  Molly :  'Do  not  mourn  for  me  ;' and  asked  her 'if 
she  felt  wilting  to  die,'  and  iaid  'I  trust  I  shall  go  to  heaven.  Death

Vou  must  be  willing  to  part  with  them.  You  and  Sir  must  live  in  love, 
and  have  no  hard  thoughts  of  each  other.' 

"To  her  aunt  Mary  White  :  'Do  you  feel  willing  to  die?'  Her 
aunt  asked  her  if  she  felt  willing  to  die.  She  answered,  '  If  it  is  God's

addressed  herself  much  after  the  same  manner. 

"She  was  asked  if  she  would  take  some  wine.  She  said  'she  was 
going  where  there  was  wine  enough,'  and  said  '.she  would  drink  with

And  said,  '  We  have  all  got  to  turn  to  dust,  and  all  come  on  earth  again 
at  the  great  day  of  judgment.'  To  her  Sir  she  said,  '  1  am  going  to

death,  and  I  shall  go  to  that  glorious  Jesus,  and  I  hope  you  will  come 
where  I  am  going.' 

"When  she  was  speaking,  she  several  times  held  up  her  hands  and 
said,  '(ilory!  glory  I  O,  that  glorious,  happy  place!  Don't  you

dation of  his  souml  physical  constitution.  His  opportunities  for  edu- 
cation during  childhood  were  limited  to  a  few  months  at  a  distant 
district  school.  At  the  age  of  fourteen  he  entered  the  Pittsfield 
.Academy  imder  the  instruction  of  James  F.  Joy,  a.  graduate  of  Dart- 
inouth,  remaining  at  the  academy  two  and  a  half  years.  He,  then  in 
his  seventeenth  year,  decided  to  prepare  himself  for  mercantile  and 
active  business  life.  He  went  to  Boston  and  entered  into  an  appren- 
ticeship in  a  drug  store.  Added  to  his  other  duties  he  began  the  study 
o(  medicine  in  all  its  branches,  and  continued  it  for  several  years  after 
until  he  was  qualified  for,  and  if  occa-sion  had  required,  could  have 
entered  upon  professional  senice.  Finishing  his  engagement  at 
Boston,  he  engaged  as  clerk  to  Luther  .Angier,  postmaster  and  druggist 
at  Medford,  Mass.,  with  the  agreement  that  with  proper  notice,  he 
could  leave  to  engage  in  business  for  himself.  Early  in  the  summer  of 
1845,  Mr.  White  believed  that  that  time  had  arrived.  He  had  never 
visited  Nashua,  N.  H.,  but  had  heard  of  its  reputation  as  a  growing

JOHN  WHITE.  369 

TnaDufacturiog  town.  A  few  hours  inspection  settled  the  question,  and 
before  leaving,  he  hired  the  store  which  he  afterwards  occupied  for 
nearly  thirty  years,  as  an  apothecary.  He  was  never  idle.  No  man 
was  more  thorough  and  paipstaking  in  the  discharge  of  obligations  to 
hi.s  customers.  In  many  of  the  business  enterprises  of  Nashua,  Mr, 
White  took  an  active  and  id  some  of  them  a  prominent  part,  engaging 
in  the  transportation  and  sale  of  coal  on  his  arrival ;  he  ha.s  always 
been  the  leading  dealer  in  the  trade.  After  the  close  of  the  war  he 
originated  the  project  of  and  gave  his  attention  to  the  construction  of 
the  large  blocks  of  stores  on  Main  street,  known  as  the  "Merchants 
Exchange,"  retaining  for  himself  and  son,  the  corner  store.  Karly  in 
1875  he  conceived  the  idea  of  establishing  a  new  National  bank,  and 
in  the  April  following  obtained  a  charter.  The  people  of  Nashua  and 
vicinity,  believing  in  his  financial  ability,  immediately  subscribed  for 
the  stock  and  elected  him  president,  a  position  he  i^ontinued  to  hold 
until  within  a  year  of  his  death,  when  failing  health  compelled  him  to 
resign.  At  the  same  time  he  resigned  for  the  same  reason  the 
treasurership  of  the  Mechanics'  Saving  bank.  From  1876  to  1891  he 
was  prominently  connected  with  the  affairs  of  the  Nashua  &  Ixjwell 
railroad  as  a  director  and  treasurer.  For  many  years  this  road  ha<l 
been  connected  and  used  by  the  Boston  &  Ixjweil  railroad  corporation

the  stockholders  of  the  Nashua  &  I  .oweil  company,  he  undertook  to

man  in  the  full  sense  of  the  term.  In  1846  Mr,  White  was  united  in
