EXPLANATIONS. 


Through  the  kindness  and  financial  assistance  of  the  presi- 
dent of  our  association,  Mr.  J.  B.  White  of  Kansas  City,  Mo.,  I 
am  able  to  send  out  this  last  volume  of  our  family  Genealogy. 
Though  Mr.  White  is  extensively  engaged  in  Lumber  and  Bank- 
ing business  in  the  South  and  West,  as  well  as  Deputy  Governor 
General  of  Missouri,  to  the  General  Society  of  Colonial  Wars. 
Yet  since  he  learned  of  my  work  in  1894,  he  has  been  deeply 
interested  in  the  history,  genealogy  and  ancestry  of  the  family 
and  besides  helping  me,  when  the  work  has  been  too  hard  for 
one,  he  has  also  employed  men  in  England  to  look  up  the  ances- 
try of  John,  out  emigrant  ancestor,  and  we  hope  yet  to  be  able 
to  give  you  the  benefit  of  his  expenditures  there. 

Besides  the  27,196,  which  are  numbered  in  regular  order  in 
the  three  volumes,  there  are  808  in  the  first  volume  whose  record 
was  not  received  in  season  and  had  to  be  designated  by  letter ; 
984  in  the  second  and  735  in  the  third,  making  the  birth  or 
baptism  of  29,723  in  the  three  volumes  ;  adding  the  1,833  whose 
record  is  found  in  the  "  White  Family  Quarterly,"  giving  31,556 
descendants  of  John  White. 

I  have  used  no  unusual  abbreviations,  using  those  of  months 
and  states;  b.  born;  bapt.  baptized;  d.  died;  p.  page;  vol.  vol- 
ume ;  dau.  daughter. 

I  make  no  distinction  in  the  male  and  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  -J-  it  will  be  found  again  in  its  proper  place 
with  the  birth  number  in  a  bracket  at  the  right  of  the  name.  It 
no  -|-  follows,  all  I  could  learn  is  recorded  at  the  birth.  The 
small  superior  figures  at  the  end  of  each  name  denotes  the 
generation. 

This  volume  contains  branches  from  the  fifth  generation, 
is  not  complete  without  the  first  volume,  which  gives  the  first 
five  generations,  also  the  old  homesteads,  and  many  articles  of 
interest,  as  well  as  a  complete  copy  of  Mrs.  Mary  (White)  Row- 
landson's  "Removes,"  giving  her  captivity  among  the  Indians 
in  1676.

Descendants    of    John    White

VOLUME    III. 


DOROTHY  Whitcomb5  (685),  b.  in  Lancaster,  Mass.,  May  13, 
1739;  m.  in  Leominster,  Mass.,  June  23,  1757,  Stephen  Johnson 
of  Leominster.  There  is  a  tradition  in  the  family  that  Mr.  John- 
son was  from  Hingham,  and  of  Scotch  descent,  but  we  have  been 
unable,  though  making  every  effort  possible,  to  connect  him  with 
the  Hingham  family  or  that  of  any  of  the  other  early  families  of 
Johnson.  Our  first  knowledge  of  him  is  his  baptism,  as  an  adult, 
July  30,  1749,  in  First  church,  Lancaster.  They  lived  in  Leo- 
minster, on  the  place  recently  owned  by  the  late  Jonas  Col  burn 
on  Pleasant  street.  He  was  a  very  public  spirited  man  and  held 
many  offices  of  public  trust,  was  town  clerk  from  1767  to  1775. 
We  do  not  find  the  date  of  Mr.  Johnson's  death,  but  his  will  was 
written  May  9,  1799,  probated  Jan.  5,  1808.  Mrs.  Johnson  d. 
Nov.  20,  1804,  aged  65.     Children:

Boston  from  September  to  December,  1778,  for

Leominster,  Aug.  20,  1851,  when  it  was  said  of  her:  "Mrs. 
Johnson,  widow  of  Joseph,  occupied  part  of  the  house  bought  by 
her  husband  of  Obadiah  Hills  in  1785,  the  remainder  being  occu- 
pied by  his  son,  Capt.  Joseph  Johnson  ;  was  familiarly  known  as 
Aunt  Huldah,  being  always  a  welcome  guest  in  the  families  of 
her  neighborhood.  Many  of  the  younger  generation  cherished 
grateful  remembrance  of  her  kindly  service  by  way  of  nice  needle- 
work (which  with  her  was  a  fine  art),  in  preparing  table  and  bed 
linen  for  housekeeping.  In  time  of  sickness  and  bereavement 
she  was  a  tender  nurse  and  kind  friend ;  her  gentle  and  sympa- 
thizing presence  was  ever  a  benediction  to  the  afflicted."  Children  :

Col.  ADOLPHUS  S.  Hubbard8  (20336),  b.  in  Chicago,  111., 
July  7,  1838  ;  where  he  was  educated  in  the  public  schools.  In 
1853  he  entered  the  telegraph  service  as  a  messenger  boy,  ex- 
pecting to  learn  to  be  an  operator.  He  was  employed  in  this 
capacity  for  two  years.  He  subsequently  went  into  the  transpor- 
tation business  ;  was  superintendent  of  an  express  company  and 
cashier  in  an  express  office.'  Going  West,  he  stopped  for  a  time 
in  New  Mexico,  going  later  to  San  Francisco,  arriving  there  Dec. 
28,  1866  ;  where  he  has  been  deputy  clerk  of  the  city  and  county 
of  San  Francisco  ;  deputy  superintendent  of  streets,  and  he  was 
for  five  years  employed  in  the  United  States  mint.  He  m.  in 
San  Francisco,  Feb.  29,  1872,  Sarah  Isabella,  dau.  of  John  and 
Hannah  Goodrich  (Holt)  Sylvester,  b.  Charlestown,  Mass. 

Col.  Hubbard's  occupation  is  now  given  as  "  secretary  of  the 
California  Historical  Society,"  but  he  is  connected  with  many 
other  similar  organizations.  He  was  an  instituting  member  and 
once  vice-president  of  the  California  Genealogical  Society  ;  an  hon- 
orary member  of  the  New  Hampshire  Historical  Society  ;  cor- 
responding member  of  the  Chicago  Historical  Society,  the  Rhode 
Island  Historical  Society  and  of  the  Oneida  Historical  Society,  of 
Utica,  N.  Y.  He  was  an  instituting  member  and  formerly  sec- 
retary of  California  commandery  of  the  Order  of  Foreign  Wars, 
and  is  a  member  of  the  New  Hampshire  Society  of  Colonial 
Wars.  He  was  president  of  the  California  Society  of  the  Sons 
of  the  American  Revolution  in  1886  and  in  1892,  and  he  also 
bears  the  distinguished  honor- of  being  recognized  as  the  founder 
of  the  Society.  The  idea  of  this  society  was  first  conceived  in 
California,  the  California  society  being  instituted  in  1875  and 
completing  its  organization  on  July  4,  1876.  Col.  Hubbard  is 
given  the  credit  of  organizing  the  society  and  in  a  still  greater 
degree,  of  maintaining  it  through  trials  which  would  have  dis- 
couraged a  less  patriotic  man.  The  esteem  in  which  his  services 
in  this  connection  are  held  is  evidenced  by  the  following  resolu- 
tions passed  by  the  California  society  Sons  of  the  American  Rev- 
olution September  3,  1892  : 

"  1st.     That  the  Society  places  on  record,  that  its  existence  to- 


Col.  A.  S.  Hubbard. 


JOHN    WHITE.  75 

day  is  due  to  the  zeal,  untiring  devotion,  and  unceasing  labors  of 
Past  President  Col.  A.  S.  Hubbard,  who  aided  in  its  inception 
and  has  almost  single-handed  brought  the  Society  through  trials 
and  discouragements  which  beset  all  new  societies,  to  its  present 
prosperous  condition  ;  therefore  it  recognizes  him  as  the  founder 
of  the  California  Society  of  the  Sons  of  the  American  Revolution, 
and  therefore  founder  of  the  Society  at  large. 

"  2d.  That  the  National  Society  of  the  Sons  of  the  American 
Revolution  is  earnestly  requested  in  its  procedings  and  publica- 
tions to  recognize  Col.  A.  S.  Hubbard  as  the  founder  of  the  Cal- 
ifornia Society,  and  thereby  founder  of  the  Society  at  large,  an 
honor  which  by  his  patriotic  labors  he  has  merited,  and  to  which 
he  is  justly  entitled. 

"  The  congress  of  the  Sons  of  the  American  Revolution  held 
in  Louisville,  Ky.,  May  1,  1890,  ordered  that  Bro.  Hubbard's 
name  be  included  among  those  of  the  president-general  of  the 
national  society. 

"  In  California  Masonic  circles  he  enjoys  the  distinction  of  being 
the  dean  of  the  secretaries'  corps.  He  is  not  the  oldest  in  years 
nor  has  his  term  of  service  been  the  longest,  but  there  is  no  Ma- 
sonic secretary  now  serving  in  California  who  was  elected  prior 
to  December,  1864.  He  received  his  degrees  in  Chicago:  in 
Cleveland  lodge,  No.  211,  in  1863,  of  which  he  was  the  secretary 
from  December,  1864,  to  December,  1865;  in  Washington  Chap- 
ter, No.  43,  Apollo  commandery,  No.  1,  and  in  Chicago  council, 
No.  4,  R.  and  S.  M.,  of  which  he  was  recorder  in   1865.     He  was 

a  charter  member  of  Chicago  commandery,   No.   19,  and  served 
as  its  recorder. 

"  Bro.  Hubbard  attended  in  Chicago  the  first  reception  to 
Abraham  Lincoln  after  his  election,  at  the  Tremont  House,  Nov. 
23,  1860.  As  secretary  he  called  out  Cleveland  lodge,  No.  211, 
to  participate  in  his  funeral  at  Chicago,  May  1,  1865.  He  was 
made  an  honorary  member  of  Ashler  lodge  No.  308,  Chicago,  in 
1865.  He  took  the  first  steps  to  organize  Oakland  commandery, 
No.  11,  of  San  Francisco,  was  its  generalissimo  in  1876,  1877  and 
1878  ;  he  is  now  a  life  member  of  that  body.  He  has  been  for 
the  past  ten  years  secretary  of  Oriental  lodge,  No.  144,  which  he 
served  as  senior  warden  in  1888  and  1889.  He  is  an  honorary 
member  of  the  Masonic  Veteran  Association  of  California  and  be- 
longs to  Golden  Gate  chapter,  No.  1,  O.  E.  S."

Pierce  was  orderly  sergeant  in  the  Revolution  and  was  in  the

JOHN  Whitcomb7  (20587),  b.  in  Batavia,  N.  Y.,  Oct.  4,  1816  ; 
went  to  Michigan  in  1831,  settling  in  Eckford,  Calhoun  county; 
m.  Nov.  9,  1837,  Nancy  Emeline  Hayes,  b.  in  Saratoga  county, 
N.  Y.,  (a  second  cousin  of  President  Hayes).  They  celebrated 
their  golden  wedding  Nov.  9,  1887,  in  Batavia,  Branch  county, 
Mich.,  where  they  remained  upon  their  farm  until  the  next  year 
when  they  went  to  Cold  water,  Mich.,  to  live  with  their  daughter 
where  she  d.  June  27,  1890;  he  d.  in  Coldwater,  June  21,  1892. 
It  was  said  of  him,  "  Passed  at  the  home  of  his  daughter,  Mrs. 
Eli  Ball,  at  the  ripe  age  of  seventy-six,  John  Whitcomb.  He 
came  to  Michigan  in  1831,  settling  in  Eckford;  in  1850  they 
moved  to  Gilead,  Branch  county,  coming  to  Coldwater  to  reside 
in  1856,  when  he  became  Sheriff  Green's  deputy.  In  1860  he 
was  elected  sheriff,  holding  the  position  four  years;  in  1870  he 
was  elected  county  treasurer,  serving  four  years,  and  later  he  held 
the  position  of  city  marshal,  and  it  can  be  said  without  fear  of 
contradiction,  that  these  several  offices  were  never  better  filled. 
After  several  years  he  moved  to  his  farm  in  Batavia  township, 
where  he  resided  until  1888,  when  a  stroke  of  paralysis  unfitted 
him  for  active  business,  since  which  time  his  home  has  been  with 
his  daughter  Mrs.  Ball.  Coming  from  good  old  revolutionary 
stock,  it  is  no  wonder  he  was  possessed  of  a  firmness  and  decision 
of  character  that  made  him  the  admiration  of  all  men ;  yet  with 
all,  he  was  one  of  the  most  kindly,  genial  and  social  of  men, 
possessed  of  a  rich  fund  of  humor  and  being  a  good  story-teller,  he 
was  a  most  companionable  man.     Of  the  strictest  integrity,  his 


JOHN    WHITE.  97 

word  was  as  good  as  a  bond,  and  he  never  made  a  promise  that  he 
did  not  intend  to  fulfil ;  an  unanswering  Republican,  almost  the 
last  words  that  passed  his  lips  were,  '  I  hope  Harrison  will  be  re- 
nominated.' He  was  a  Christian  man,  too,  a  member  of  the  Free 
Will  Baptist  Church,  faithfully  living  up  to  its  teachings."  Chil-

Such  was  his  love  of  books  that  it  is  related  of  him  that  as  a  boy 
when  sent  to  the  field  to  plow,  he  would  frequently  be  found  in  a 
fence  corner  buried  in  his  book  while  the  plow  stood  idle,  until 
he  was  aroused  from  his  studies.  The  love  of  books  and  studies 
was  the  love  of  a  lifetime  ;  as  long  as  his  failing  strength  in  the 
last  months  of  his  life  would  permit  he  read  constantly.  After 
graduating  he  read  law  at  Amherst  for  a  time  with  Judge  Dick- 
ison,  then  went  to  Gallipolis,  Ohio,  to  make  his  home  with  his 
older  brother,  Simeon,  with  whom  he  continued  his  law  studies, 
meanwhile  teaching  school  at  Kyger  and  Gallipolis  until  he  was 
admitted  to  the  bar,  when  he  opened  an  office  in  Gallipolis,  where 
he  practiced  his  profession  until  declining  health  put  an  end  to 
his  active  labors.  He  was  elected  prosecuting  attorney  of  the 
county  in  1855,  and  married,  in  1856,  Ruth  H.  Early  of  Virginia, 
sister  of  Gen.  Jubal  Early.  Mr.  Nash  combined  in  an  almost  un- 
qualified degree  those  qualities  that  make  a  lawyer  and  those 
powers  that  make  an  orator ;  was  one  of  the  few  lawyers  who 
were  equally  ready  and  able  to  present  a  case  to  the  court  or  jury. 
As  a  trial  lawyer  he  probably  never  had  an  equal  in  that  county 
or  section  of  the  state ;  he  was  earnest  in  argument,  keen  in  his 
analysis  of  the  law  of  a  case  and  his  presentation  of  the  evidence 
to  the  jury,  with  rare  gifts  of  eloquence  that  made  him  an  almost 
unequalled  advocate.  He  lacked  nothing  that  was  necessary  to 
the  orator.  His  sense  of  humor  was  as  keen  as  that  of  Swift : 
his  wide  and  continued  reading  of  the  English  classics  had  made 
him  a  master  of  English  speech.  His  memory  was  wonderfully 
retentive.  Added  to  these  he  was  by  nature  a  poet  in  the  highest 
sense  of  the  word  :  not  a  rhymster,  but  one  who  had  the  keen 
appreciation  of  the  beautiful,  the  delicacy  of  touch,  the  sensitive 
nature,  that  makes  poets  and  orators.  He  d.  in  Gallipolis,  Sept.

the  exception  of  a  finishing  course  at  the  school  kept  by  Rev. 
Sanford  Lawton  of  Springfield,  Mass.      In   1839  Mr.  Taylor  en-

years.      In   1842  he  began  work  for  S.  A   Sackford  &  Co,  and 
soon  afterward  was  made  a  partner  in  the  firm,  on  his  becoming

one  of  the  most  respected  and  influential  citizens  of  the  city  and

party  and  has  held  the  offices  as  selectman  and  assessor,  also 
served  three  years  in  the  legislature  and  one  term  in  the  senate 
at  the  opening  of  the  Civil  War.      He  has  been  justice  of  the 
peace  since  1845  and  special  justice  of  the  Chicopee  police  court 
until  1859.      In  1863  Mr.  Taylor  engaged  in  the  agricultural  tool 
business    under   the   firm   name   of    "Belcher   &  Taylor;"  this

of  Major  Generals  George  B.  McClellan  and  W.  S.  Rosecrans. 
He  continued  in  service  until  November,  1862,  when  he  was  ap- 
pointed Captain  and  Commissary  of  Subsistence  of  Volunteers. 
Shortly  after  his  appointment  he  was  ordered  to  report  to  Gen. 
Rosecrans  commanding  the  army  of  the  Cumberland  at  Murfrees- 
boro,  Tenn.  His  service  in  the  army  of  the  Cumberland  lasted 
more  than  a  year,  until  April,  1864.  During  that  time  he  served 
on  the  staffs  of  Gen.  Sheridan  and  Gen.  Crook ;  he  served 
through  the  Tullahoma  campaign  and  battle  of  Chickamauga.  In 
April,  1864,  he  was  transferred  to  the  military  department  of 
West  Virginia  upon  the  request  of  Gen.  Crook  and  was  chief 
commissary  on  his  staff  during  the  famous  Hunter's  Lynchburg 
raid.  He  continued  to  serve  as  commissary  of  Volunteers  until 
Dec.  15,  1865,  when  he  accepted  a  commission  in  the  same  de- 
partment and  with  the  same  rank  in  the  regular  army,  vacating 
on  the  same  day  his  appointment  as  a  volunteer  officer  by  his  ac- 
ceptance in  the  regular  corps. 

Since  the  Civil  War,  he  has  served  in  his  official  capacity  on 
the  Rio  Grande  river  of  Texas  ;  then  a  brief  service  in  Washing- 
ton— 1868-9;  then  commissary  at  Cincinnati,  Ohio,  in   1869,  and

part  of  1870  ;  then  chief  commissary  of  the  district  of  New  Mex- 
ico, with  station  at  Santa  Fe,  from  May,  1870,  to  November, 
1873  ;  then  to  Louisville,  Ky.;  then  to  Cheyenne,  Wyo.,  in  1876, 
to  September,  1880  ;  then  to  Boston,  Mass.,  until  December, 
1881  ;  then  to  Washington,  D.  C,  until  December,  1884  ;  then  to 
•New  Orleans,  La.,  until  December,  1888;  then  to  Fort  Monroe, 
Va.,  until  December,  1889;  then  to  Vancouver  Barracks,  Wash., 
until  April,  1897  ;  then  to  St.  Louis,  Mo  ,  until  April,  1898  ;  then 
to  Washington  city,  where  he  was  retired  from  active  service  be- 
cause of  age.  Promotion  at  first,  in  his  corps,  was  very  slow,  he 
having  served  as  captain  from  Nov.  17,  1865,  to  July  14,  1890, 
when  he  was  promoted  to  major.  He  received  his  commission  as 
lieutenant-colonel  on  June  10,  1896,  and  as  colonel  on  Mar.  4, 
1898.  On  April  21,  1-898,  the  president  appointed  Gen.  Nash 
commissary  general  of  subsistence  with  rank  of  brigadier  general, 
United  State's  army.  At  his  own  request,  he  retired  May  2,  1898. 
Under  the  law  governing  the  army,  he  would  have  been  com- 
pelled to  go  upon  the  retired  list  upon  reaching  the  age  of  sixty- 
four  years;  as  this  occurred  June  22,  1898,  he  anticipated  a  few 
weeks,  believing  it  to  be  for  the  best  interests  of  the  service  and 
himself.  After  the  retirement  of  Gen.  Nash,  he  and  his  wife  left 
Washington  city,  moving  to  Columbus,  Ohio,  his  native  state.

1801,  d.  Oct.  5,  1868.  Mr.  White  was  a  lumberman  and  many 
have  mentioned  him  to  me  as  one  very  active  in  business,  and 
highly  respected ;  that  once  seen,  his  fine  form  was  not  easily 
forgotten.  He  d.  in  Troy,  N.  Y.,  Feb.  2,  1881,  and  the  following 
is  from  the  "Troy  Times"  of  that  date:  " Thomas  White,  one 
of  our  oldest  and  most  respected  citizens  died  at  noon  today  at 
his  residence,  Number  84  Fourth  street.  The  deceased  was 
eighty-five  years  old.  .  .  He  came  to  this  city  at  an  early  age, 
for  many  years  was  engaged  in  the  lumber  business  and  was  the 
agent  through  whom  all  lumber  for  the  Rensselaer  and  Saratoga 
road  was  purchased.  For  several  years  he  was  president  of  the 
Troy  Orphan  Asylum  and  at  the  time  of  his  death  was  one  of  the 
trustees.  For  a  long  period  he  was  a  director  of  the  Troy  City 
Bank,  and  at  the  time  of  his  demise,  was  one  of  the  directors  of 
the  Rensselaer  and  Saratoga  railroad.  Mr.  White  was  a  man  of 
unsullied  character  and  unquestioned  integrity  through  a  busy 
and  useful  life.  He  was  formerly  one  of  the  most  active  and  in- 
fluential of  our  business  men,  but  age  and  sickness  some  time 
since  impaired  his  powers  and  during  recent  years  he  has  not 
been  prominently  identified  with  local  interests,  but  took  great 
pleasure  in  witnessing  the  progress  of  the  city  ;  and  felt  no  little 
pride  in  the  success  and  prosperity  of  his  friends  ;  he  was  truly  a 
good  man  and  citizen  and  among  the  older,  especially,  his  death 
will  be  very  greatly  lamented."     Children  :

Capt.  LUCIAN  A.  Cook8  (21526),  b.  in  Leominster,  Mass., 
Aug.  6,  1838  ;  was  educated  in  his  native  town,  attending  the 
Leominster  High  school.  At  the  breaking  out  of  the  Civil  War 
in  1861,  he  was  a  member  of  the  Leominster  Light  Infantry,  and 
with  that  organization  was  mustered  into  the  service  of  the 
United  States,  July  12,  1861.  The  company  was  designated  as 
Company  A,  1 5th  Regiment,  Massachusetts  Volunteers.  He 
was  in  all  the  actions  in  which  that  gallant  regiment  participated, 
until  his  capture  at  the  battle  of  Antietam.  He  was  taken  to 
Libby  prison,  Richmond,  Va.,  and  after  a  few  weeks  was  paroled 
and  carried  to  "Camp  Parole,"  Annapolis,  Md.,  and  shortly  after 
returned  home  as  a  paroled  prisoner.  On  account  of  his  injuries 
received  at  the  time  of  his  capture,  a  severe  attack  of  fever  and 
ague,  and  general  disability  incident  to  severe  campaigns  and 
prison  life,  he  received  an  honorable  discharge,  Dec.  31,  1862. 
During  the  year  1863,  he  resided  a  short  time  in  Brookfield, 
Conn.,  and  after  his  return  to  Leominster,  received  notice  that 


JOHN    WHITE.  189 

he  had  been  drafted  to  fill  the  quota  of  Brookneld.  He,  at  once, 
reported  to  the  authorities  in  Connecticut,  but  was  at  once  re- 
jected. It  being  his  wish  to  do  such  military  duty  as  lay  in  his 
power,  he  enlisted  in  a  band  organized  by  P.  S.  Gilmore  for  ser- 
vice in  the  Gulf  States,  Nov.  23,  1863.  This  band  was  known  as 
the  "First  Brigade  Band  "  and  a  part  of  the  time  was  assigned  to 
the  81st  Regiment,  United  States  Infantry,  Department  of  the 
Gulf.  By  reason  of  failing  health  he  was  discharged  at  New  Or- 
leans, July  20,  1865. 

July  9,  1868,  he,  with  others  organized  Post  53,  Grand  Army 
of  the  Republic  and  was  elected  its  first  commander.  In  the 
spring  of  1868,  feeling  that  Leominster  should  be  represented  in 
the  State  Militia,  he  with  several  other  veterans  of  the  late  war, 
in  twenty-four  hours  recruited  a  company  of  sixty  men,  who  were 
shortly  after  mustered  into  the  service  of  the  state  for  a  term  of 
three  years  as  Company  K,  10th  Regiment,  Massachusetts  Vol- 
unteer Militia.  At  the  election  of  officers  he  was  unanimously 
chosen  Captain.  While  this  company  was  under  his  command, 
he  was  one  of  the  most  earnest,  faithful  and  eminently  successful 
company  commanders  in  the  state.  During  this  time  the  Leomin- 
ster Light  Infantry,  as  an  organization,  was  an  honor  to  the  state 
militia  and  to  the  town  of  Leominster.  This  office  he  continued 
to  hold  until  his  death,  which  occurred  Mar.  13,  1873.  He  was 
buried  with  the  military  honors  due  his  rank,  the  funeral  being 
largely  attended  by  the  officers  of  the  regiment.  Capt.  Cook  was

LEVI5  (728),  b.  in  Lancaster,  Mass.,  bapt.  Oct.  1,  1763.  It  is 
said  that  he  enlisted  in  the  Revolution  at  the  age  of  sixteen,  and 
we  find  him  with  rank  of  private  on  the  company  returns  of 
Capt.  Nathaniel  Wright's  Co.,  as  belonging  in  Lancaster,  and  en- 
listed for  Lancaster,  Oct.  11,  1781  ;  discharged  Dec,  1781.  His 
name  again  appears  on  a  warrant  to  pay  officers  and  men  on  a  roll 
bearing  date,  Mar.  7,  1783.  (Massachusetts  Archives,  State 
House,  Boston.) 

He  m.  Apr.  3,  1791,  Polly  or  Mary,  dau.  of  Dr.  Enoch  and 
Eunice  (Richardson)  Dole,  b.  in  Lancaster,  Aug.  2,  1771.  Dr. 
Dole  was  a  surgeon  in  the  Revolution  and  in  the  memoirs  of 
Major  General  Heath  under  date  of  March  9,  1776,  is  written  : 
"  This  night  a  strong  detachment  went  down  to  open  a  work  on 
Nook  Hill  in  Dorchester  still  nearer  to  Boston.  Some  of  the 
men  imprudently  kindled  a  fire  behind  the  hill  previous  to  the 
hour  for  breaking  of  ground.  The  enemy  discovered  the  light  of 
the  fire  ;  and  there  was,  during  the  evening  and  night,  a  continual 
roar  of  cannon  and  mortars  from  the  castle  and  guns  on  Boston 
Neck,  south  end  of  that  town ;  as  well  as  from  the  Americans  at 
Roxbury,  Cobble  Hill  and  Leechmore's  Point  at  Cambridge.  The 
second  shot  from  the  British  at  the  old  fortifications  south  end 
of  the  town  of  Boston  killed  4  Americans  who  were  standing 
around  the  fire  before  mentioned  at  Nook  Hill ;  one  of  whom  was 
Dr.  Dow  of  Connecticut." 

For  Dr.  Dow  should  here  be  read  Dr.  Enoch  Dole  of  Lancas- 
ter, surgeon  of  Colonel  Ephraim  Doolittle's  regiment,  as  an  epi- 
taph in  the  old  cemetery  at  Littleton  tells  : 

"Here  lies  ye  Body  of  Dr.  Enoch  Dole  of  Lancaster  A.E.  33 
Years  5  mo  &  3  days,  he  unfortunately  fell  with  3  others  ye  9th 
of  March  1776  by  a  cannon  Ball  from  our  cruel  and  unnatural 
Foes  ye  British  Troops  while  on  his  duty  on  Dorchester  Point." 
(From  the  Military  Annals  of  Lancaster,  p.  136.)

WHITING  Gates8  (21940),  b.  in  Leominster,  Mass.,  Feb.  27,

(Carter)  Richardson,  b.  in  Leominster,  Jan.  1,  1816.  Mr.  Gates 
said  that  when  a  lad  his  chief  ambition  was  to  get  his  liberty, 
leave  the  farm,  get  behind  four  spanking  horses  and  be  seated  in 
the  box  of  the  stage-coach  (that  being  the  only  means  of  public 
travel  in  his  youth).  Instead  of  becoming  a  skilled  reinsman,  he 
became  a  school-master,  a  deputy-sheriff,  a  farmer  and  manufac- 
turer, but  not  all  at  the  same  time.     When  nineteen  years  of  age,

he  went  to  Wayland,  Mass.,  and  attended  a  school  kept  by  Rev. 
Gardner  Rice ;  he  was  there  ten  weeks,  when  Marshall  S.  Rice 
of  Newton  Center,  Mass.,  came  over  and  invited  him  to  go  to 
Newton,  where  he  said  he  had  two  boys  who  worked  for  their 
board  and  tuition,  and  he  offered  Mr.  Gates  the  same  chance.  If 
there  came  a  stormy  Saturday,  school  was  in  session,  and  the 
holiday  then  came  on  some  pleasant  week  day,  when  the  boys 
would  be  able  to  do  some  work.  He  also  attended  Uncle  Tom 
Frye's  Quaker  school  at  Bolton.  Mr.  Gates  taught  school  four 
winters  in  Leominster  and  one  in  Lunenburg,  Mass.,  receiving 
eighteen  dollars  per  month  and  his  board  ;  he  then  went  to  Wor- 
cester, Mass.,  as  a  clerk  for  Col.  Ivers  Phillips,  who  was  a  dep- 
uty-sheriff under  High-sheriff  Willard.  Mr.  Gates  acted  as  a  clerk 
from  March  to  September,  when  he  was  appointed  as  a  deputy. 
He  said  the  appointment  frightened  him  when  he  thought  of  the 
forty  thousand  dollars  sureties  he  must  furnish,  and  he  told 
Sheriff  Willard  it  was  no  use  to  try  to  get  bondsmen,  but  the 
sheriff  said,  "  You  go  to  Leominster  and  get  twenty-five  of  the 
best  men  there  on  your  bond,"  and  he  found  them  in  one  day's 
time.  He  remained  in  Worcester  two  years  and  a  half.  When 
his  grandfather,  John  Divoll6  (22913),  died,  his  mother  went  back 
to  the  old  homestead  and  wanted  him  to  come  home  and  take 
his  father's  farm  which  she  vacated,  which  he  did,  the  farm  later 
being  taken  by  his  brother,  Augustus,  he  buying  a  saw  and  grist 
mill.  Hearing  of  a  man  in  Naugatuck,  Conn.,  who  wanted  a  mill 
and  water  privilege  to  make  buttons,  he  went  to  see  him,  with 
the  result  that  a  room  was  fitted  up  for  him  in  one  of  the  mills, 
and  he  began  here  the  button  industry.  He  remained  a  year  and 
a  half,  then  Mr.  Gates  and  Mr.  Sydney  Harris  of  Clinton  made 
buttons  there ;  later  he  manufactured  buttons  alone,  and  for  a 
brief  time  made  bone  pencil  tips.  He  remained  on  this  place  for 
fifteen  years,  until  his  mother's  death,  in  1862,  when  he  went  to 
his  grandfather's  farm,  and  upon  that  place,  which  bears  the 
name  "  Whiting  Gates  farm,"  remained  until  he  was  seventy- 
seven,  when  he  gave  up  the  larger  responsibilities  and  built  in 
Leominster  Center.  Soon  after,  when  Leominster  Park  was 
created  and  an  artificial  lake  made,  a  large  part  of  the  farm  was 
submerged.  After  becoming  of  age,  Mr.  Gates  never  missed  a 
state  or  town  election,  was  a  regular  attendant  at  all  town  meet- 
ings.    He  was  the  oldest  native-born  member  of  the  Unitarian

Mr.  Whitcomb  went  to  Worcester  in  1846  and  was  em- 
ployed in  the  machine-shop  of  S.  C.  Coombs  &  Co.  for  four  years, 
when  his  brother  Carter  purchased  the  Copying-press  establish- 
ment of  George  C.  Taft.  The  business  developed  rapidly  and  the 
firm  was  known  as  C.  Whitcomb  &  Co.  In  addition  to  the 
manufacture  of  copying-presses,  the  firm  began  the  man- 
ufacture of  metal-working  machine  tools.  This  branch  of  the 
business  soon  outstripped  that  of  making  copying-presses  ;  his 
brother  retired  from  the  firm  in  1871  and  it  has  since  been  known 
as  the  Whitcomb  Manufacturing  Co.  In  partnership  with  Mr. 
Augustus  Rice,  Mr.  Whitcomb  succeeded  to  the  business  of 
Timothy  F.  Taft  in  1866.  As  a  separate  firm,  the  business  of 
making  metal  shears  and  presses  was  conducted  until  the  retire- 
ment of  Mr.  Rice  in  1881  resulted  in  the  union  of  the  two  con- 
cerns owned  by  Mr.  Whitcomb.  He  was  one  of  the  projectors 
and  founders  of  the  Kabley  Foundry  Co.,  and  has  been  an  officer 
of  the  company  for  many  years.  For  fifty  years,  Mr.  Whitcomb 
was  active  in  the  development  of  Worcester's  industries.  Al- 
though two  destructive  fires  entailed  heavy  losses,  his  credit 
remained  unimpaired.  He  was  interested  neither  in  politics  nor 
secret  societies  and  the  greater  part  of  his  time  outside  of  busi- 
ness was  passed  at  his  home.  He  d.  in  Worcester,  Mar.  28,

HENRY  C.  Tenney7  (22416),  b.  in  Marlboro,  N.  H.,  Dec.  26, 
1830.  From  an  early  age  he  manifested  an  unusual  fondness  for 
books,  and  zealously  applied  himself  to  every  means  of  obtaining 
knowledge.  He  devoted  his  evenings  to  study,  improving  all  the 
facilities  of  his  native  town,  then  completed  his  preparation  for 
college  at  Westminster,  Vt ,  under  Professor  L.  F.  Ward.  His 
close  application  to  study  permanently  injured  his  eyesight ;  and 
with  the  cherished  object  of  his  ambition  almost  within  his  grasp, 
he  was  forced  to  forego  his  plans  for  college  and  a  professional 
career.  He  m.  Mar.  18,  1858,  Julia  C.  Stebbins  of  Hinsdale,  N. 
H.  For  several  years  he  was  a  successful  teacher,  holding  suc- 
cessively the  position  of  principal  of  Mettowee  Academy,  Pawlet, 
Vt.,  Peterboro  Academy  and  the  High  School  in  Marlboro. 
Leaving  his  native  town,  he  visited  the  land  of  gold  on  the  Pa- 
cific coast,  and  finally  settled,  in  1862,  in  East  Jaffrey,  N.  H., 
where  for  nearly  six  years  he  was  clerk  of  the  cotton  factory 
of  A.  Bascomb  &  Co.;  he  was  held  in  the  highest  esteem  by  his 
employers.  In  1868,  he  settled  in  Orange,  Mass.,  opening  a  gen- 
eral store  under  the  firm  name  of  H.  C.  Tenney  &  Co.,  which 
was  gradually  changed  to  a  hardware,  paint  and  oil  house.  He 
was  one  of  the  founders  of  the  Orange  Savings  and  Orange  Na- 
tional Banks,  and  was  an  officer  in  each.  His  voice  is  often 
heard  in  the  business  and  literary  circles  of  the  town  of  his  adop- 
tion. He  possesses  in  a  marked  degree  the  faculty  of  concentra- 
tion, or  thinking  upon  his  feet,  ever  ready  to  answer  with  crushing 
effect  any  and  every  attack  upon  him.  As  a  man  in  all  the  va- 
rious stations  of  life,  he  is  ever  the  firm  lover  and  champion  of 
right.     Children  :

BEZALEEL  Baker5  (808e),  b.  in  Westminster,  Mass.,  Jan.  4, 
1768.  At  fifteen  years  of  age,  the  care  of  his  father's  farm  and 
brickyard  devolved  on  him  and  two  younger  brothers,  his  father 
being  confined  to  the  house  by  sickness  for  several  years  He 
first  went  to  Marlboro,  in  December,  1787,  worked  for  his  brother 
Jonadab  at  shoemaking  and  other  business  during  the  winter,  and 
returned  to  Westminster  in  the  spring ;  went  back  and  forth 
occasionally  until  November  16,  1789,  when  he  purchased  a  tract 
of  wild  land  which  comprised  the  farm  recently  owned  by  Lyman 
Underwood.  He  m.  Sept.  17,  1793,  Abigail,  dau.  of  Dea.  Nathan 
and  Rebecca  (Haynes)  Wood  of  Westminster,  b.  June  9,  1770. 
Mr.  Baker  and  his  wife  went  to  Marlboro  the  next  day  after  their 
marriage,  attended  the  ordination  of  Rev.  Halloway  Fish,  and 
occupied  their  new  house  for  the  first  time.       Mr.  Baker  was 


JOHN    WHITE.  293 

strictly  a  temperance  man,  when  every  one  else  thought  it  did 
them  good  to  drink  ;  yet  his  neighbors  said  that  they  never  knew 
him  to  drink  spirits  but  once,  and  that  was  at  a  wolf-hunt, 
where  one  was  killed,  and  the  bounty  paid  in  rum,  and,  while  the 
rain  fell  in  torrents,  he  drank  with  the  others.  But  the  influence 
of  his  temperance  habits  has  been  very  salutary  on  his  family, 
for  no  one  of  them  has  ever  made  excessive  use  of  ardent  spirits. 
He  built  upon  his  farm,  during  his  occupation  of  it,  two  houses, 
four  forty-feet  barns,  one  hundred  and  eighty  feet  of  wood 
houses,  tool  houses,  sheds  and  a  cider  mill,  one  set  of  barns  and 
sheds  having  been  struck  by  lightning  and  consumed  in  August, 
1829.     He  d.  Oct.  1,  1849.     His  widow  d.  Apr.  10,  1862. 

Dea.  Nathan  Wood  was  a  descendant  of  William  Wood,  who 
came  to  this  country  in  1638,  and  settled  in  Concord,  Mass. 
Married  May  2,  1750,  Rebecca,  clau.  of  Abijah  Haynes  of  Sud- 
bury, Mass.,  b.  Feb.  14,  1731.  Mr.  Wood  removed  to  Westmin- 
ster in  1756.  He  was  active  in  opposing  those  measures  of  the 
British  government  which  led  to  the  Revolution  and  the  struggle 
for  independence  ;  was  a  member  of  the  first  congress,  which 
met  in  Cambridge,  and  encouraged  resistance  to  the  arbitrary  acts 
of  the  English  crown.  He  d.  June  19,  1777,  and  his  fifteen  chil- 
dren followed  his  remains  to  the  grave. 

Abijah  Haynes  was  a  son  of  James  and  Sarah  (Noyes)  Haynes, 
b.  in  Sudbury,  Oct.  16,    1701  ;  m.  Jan.   18,    1726,  Elizabeth,  dau.

Apr.  29,  1875,  Martha,  dau.  of  Elijah  and  Prudence  (Newell) 
Harrington.  Deacon  Baker  settled  in  Troy,  N.  H.,  in  1821,  and 
devoted  his  attention  to  farming.  His  good  qualities  of  head  and 
heart  were  soon  recognized  by  his  fellow  citizens,  and  he  became 
one  of  the  leading  men  of  the  town.  His  sound  judgement  and 
general  intelligence  fitted  him  for  any  position  in  the  community; 
he  was  frequently  elected  to  fill  the  civil  offices  of  the  town,  ser- 
ving as  selectman  for  some  fifteen  years.  He  was  representative 
in  the  legislature  in  the  years  40-42.  He  did  a  large  amount  of 
business  in  the  settling  of  estates;  his  familiarity  with  the  law  fit- 
ted him  for  this  kind  of  business. 

The  crowning  excellence  of  Deacon  Baker's  life  is  to  be  found 
in  his  devotion  to  his  Divine  Master  and  in  his  noble  Christian 
character.  He  experienced  religion  in  early  life,  and  united  with 
the  Congregational  church,  through  the  trying  period  of  the  early 
history  of  the  little  church  in  Troy,  he  was  one  of  few  who  re- 
mained steadfast  to  the  Congregational  faith;  and  through  his  and 
his  co-laborer's  efforts,  under  the  divine  blessing,  the  church 
lived  and  prospered.  Soon  after  he  became  a  member  of  the 
church,  he  was  chosen  a  deacon,  and  as  an  officer  in  the  church, 
he  was  vigilant  and  faithful,  watching  over  its  members  and  lab- 
oring to  promote  their  spiritual  welfare.  After  a  long  and  useful 
life  he  d.  Sept.  26,  1878,  calmly,  and  in  full  assurance  of  a  glorious 
immortality.     Children.

Maj.  JONATHAN  Grout5  (825),  b.  in  Lunenburg,  Mass., 
Apr.  24,  1760;  m.  int.  pub.  (1)  May  17,  1788  in  Charlestown, 
N.  H.,  with  Parthena,  dau.  of  Peter  and  Sarah  (Farns worth) 
Page,  b.  in  Charlestown,  Dec.  6,  1769  and  settled  in  what  is  now 
called  Snumshire  in  Charlestown.  Maj.  Grout,  as  he  was  famil- 
iarly called,  was  an  officer  in  the  militia  and  also  a  justice  of  the 
peace.  He  was  a  good  citizen,  with  at  once  the  independence  of 
his  father,  "  the  brave  old  commissary,"  with  many  of  the  idio- 
syncrasies which  appear  to  be  somewhat  inherent  in  the  Grout 
race  and  which  often  created  no  little  amusement.  After  the  de- 
cease of  his  first  wife,  when  his  situation,  and  the  condition  of  his 
family  were  such,  that  he  stood  in  need  of  another,  the  widows 
and  marriageable  ladies  of  the  time  began  to  manifest  some  curi- 
osity, as  he  was  a  man  in  prosperous  circumstances,  to  ascertain 
who  might  be  the  favored  one,  on  whom  his  choice  would  fall. 
And  such  became  the  interest  of  some  in  the  subject,  that  they 
even  dared  to  approach  him  with  the  question,  "  Major  Grout, 
which  of  us  do  you  intend  to  take  ?  "  To  which  the  good  Major 
good-naturedly  replied,  "Wait  till  Thanksgiving  time,  and  I  will 
show  you  how  I  feel  towards  you."  When  Thanksgiving  day 
arrived,  great  amusement  was  created  on  learning  that  he  had 
sent  to  every  widow  in  town,  a  pumpkin  and  pint  of  molasses 
that  they  all  might  be  furnished  with  pumpkin  pies  for  that 
occasion. 

His  choice,  at  length,  after  a  suitable  time,  fell  on  Mrs.  Mary 
Prouty,  widow  of  Samuel  Trouty,  Jr.,  [dau.  of  Elijah  and  Mary 
(Stevens)  King],  and  according  to  the  usual  custom  of  those 
times,  in  order  to  introduce  his  wife  to  her  new  neighbors,  he 
soon  gave  a  wedding  party,  to  which  as  his  house  would  not  hold 


308  DESCENDANTS    OF 

the  whole  town,  he  invited  only  those  who  lived  between  the  two 
brooks,  or  between  the  upper  and  lower  mills.  This  did  not 
please  some  of  his  friends,  outside  of  those  limits,  who  received 
no  invitation,  and  who  therefore  made  no  little  talk  about  it. 
This  coming  to  the  ears  of  the  Major,  he  said  he  would  give  an- 
other party  before  long,  and  when  he  did  he  would  give  such  a 
party,  as  nobody  could  have  any  reason  to  find  fault  with.  This 
declaration  he  made  good  by  inviting  the  whole  town's  poor  ;  and 
one  who  was  present  at  this  gathering,  describes  it  as  one  of  the 
happiest  she  ever  attended.  Major  Grout  went  after  them  with 
a  four-horse  team,  the  finest  that  he  could  obtain ;  and  the  repast 
that  was  set  before  them,  was  not  only  bountiful,  but  most  in- 
viting. Of  course  there  was  no  fault  to  be  found  with  his  party 
this  time,  and  the  persons  who  were  dissatisfied  with  the  first 
one,  not  only  forgave  him  for  what  they  had  regarded  as  his  ne- 
glect, but  praised  the  goodness  of  heart,  and  heartily  laughed  at 
the  eccentricity,  which  prompted  the  happy  turn  he  had  made. 

His  second  wife  dying  he  m.  Jan.  16,  1833,  Lydia,  dau.  of 
Elisha  and  Lydia  (Durant)  Putnam,  b.  in  Charlestown,  Dec.  10,

JOHN    WHITE.  309 

The  following  notice  of  Mr.  Hamlin  appeared  in  the  Granite 
State  Journal,  published  at  Claremont,  soon  after  his  decease  on 
the  third  of  May,  1875  :  "  Ashbel  Hamlin,  Esq.,  died  on  the  3d 
of  May,  at  his  home  in  Charlestown,  at  the  venerable  age  of  77 
years.  Mr.  Hamlin  was  not  only  well  known  in  Charlestown, 
but  extensively,  through  his  business  relations,  throughout  Sul- 
livan and  Cheshire  Counties.  He  was  one  of  the  selectmen  in 
Charlestown  in  1838-39-40,  and  '41,  and  the  representative  of  the 
town  in  the  Legislature  in  1841-2.  He  was  chosen  one  of  the  di- 
rectors of  the  old  'Connecticut  River  State  Bank,'  and  held  the 
same  office  in  the  Connecticut  River  National  Bank  up  to  the 
time  of  his  decease.  He  was  also  one  of  the  directors  of  the 
'  Cheshire  Mutual  Fire  Insurance  Company.'  Mr.  Hamlin  met 
with  an  accident  about  17  years  ago,  by  being  thrown  from  a 
carriage,  which  resulted  in  a  spinal  affection,  from  which  he  suf- 
fered so  much  that  for  several  years  previous  to  his  decease  he 
was  able  to  give  but  little  attention  to  public  affairs.  During  the 
last  three  years  of  his  life,  he  was  in  an  almost  helpless  condition, 
though  he  occasionally  rode  to  the  village,  to  attend  to  absolutely 
necessary  business."  Mrs.  Hamlin  survives  her  husband.

(Stevens)  Stevens,  b.  in  Rutland,  Mass.,  Oct.  2,  1739.  He  came 
with  his  father  to  No.  4,  now  Charlestown,  in  early  life.  When 
ten  years  of  age,  he  was  taken  prisoner  by  the  Indians  and  car- 
ried to  Montreal,  June  17,  1749.  He  was  kindly  treated  and  im- 
mediately sent  back,  so  that  he  arrived  at  home  about  the  middle 
of  the  September  following.  He  retained  to  the  close  of  his  life 
a  vivid  recollection  of  his  captivity.     The  following  is  from  his 


JOHN   WHITE.  313 

son,  late  of  Barnet :  "  My  father  was  a  lieutenant  in  1756.  I 
had  his  journal  of  an  expedition  up  West  River  and  so  on  to  Fort 
Massachusetts.  His  diary  was  burned  in  the  Vermont  State 
House.  It  seems  from  this  that  the  above  commission  was  con- 
ferred upon  him  when  only  about  sixteen  years  of  age. 

"  He  was  elected  one  of  the  selectmen  of  Charlestown  for  the 
years  1773-75-76. 

"  In  the  war  of  the  Revolution  he  took  the  side  of  the  British. 
His  father  and  brothers  had  been  honored  by  commissions  from 
the  Governors  of  New  Hampshire  and  Massachusetts  Bay,  while 
they  were  British  provinces,  and  like  many  others,  no  doubt,  he 
thought  that  the  powerful  crown  of  Great  Britain  would  soon 
crush  the  infant  American  Republic.     In  his  journal  he  writes : 

"Charlestown,  N.  H.,  May  2nd,  1777.  Set  out  for  New  York; 
left  my  all,  for  the  sake  of  my  king  and  my  country." 

In  New  York  he  joined  a  volunteer  company  appointed  to  keep 
guard  on  the  coast,  but  it  does  not  appear  that  he  was  ever  en- 
gaged in  battle.  He  with  six  others,  Sept.  30,  1782,  received  a 
commission  from  his  excellency  the  Commander  in  Chief  of  the 
British  forces,  to  go  to  Nova  Scotia  to  take  charge  of  the  provis- 
ions, arms  and  amunition  sent  by  the  Commander  in  Chief  for 
the  use  of  refugees,  going  with  them  to  settle  in  that  country, 
and  divide  the  same  among  them. 

He  bought  land  and  settled  in  Digby,  Nova  Scotia,  where  he 
resided  until  1775.  After  the  war  he  applied  to  the  British  gov- 
ernment for  indemnity  for  "loyalty,  losses  and  services,"  but  it 
is  n6t  probable  that  he  was  indemnified,  for  his  property  was  not 
confiscated.  In  his  journal  he  writes,  "  Feb.  25th,  1785.  Came 
to  Charlestown  ;  found  all  my  friends  well ;  seven  years  and  ten 
months  since  I  left  this  town."  He  went  from  Charlestown  to 
Barnet,  Vt.,  and  was  present  at  a  meeting  of  the  proprietors, 
Aug.  23d,  1785,  and  drew  shares  in  the  town  as  one  of  the  pro- 
prietors when  the  first  division  took  place.  Soon  after  he  sold 
his  possessions  in  Nova  Scotia  and  went  to  Barnet  to  reside, 
where,  having  purchased  the  lands  owned  by  his  brother,  and  ob- 
tained vendue  titles  to  others,  he  became  proprietor  of  the  prin- 
cipal part  of  the  township  with  which  his  interests  and  history 
became  identified. 

In  the  autumn  of  1790,  Dr.  Jonathan  Arnold  of  St.  Johnsbury, 


314  DESCENDANTS    OF 

Vt.,  being  on  a  journey  down  the  river  stopped  for  a  night  with 
Mr.  Stevens,  (then  keeping  bachelor  hall  at  Barnet).  In  the 
course  of  the  evening  the  circumstances  of  their  solitary  condi- 
tion becoming  a  subject  of  conversation,  an  expedition  to  Charles- 
town  was  immediately  planned  to  take  effect  on  the  morrow,  the 
object  being  to  spy  out  the  available  daughters  of  the  land.  On 
their  arrival  they  called  on  Samuel  Stevens,  Esq.,  a  brother  of 
Enos  to  whom  they  communicated  the  object  of  their  coming. 
A  consultation  was  held,  and  an  arrangement  entered  into  to 
issue  invitations  to  Cynthia  Hastings  and  Sophia  Grout,  daughters 
respectively  of  Lemuel  Hastings  and  Elijah  Grout,  requesting 
their  presence  at  tea,  it  being  understood  by  those  in  the  secret 
that  the  strangers  from  Vermont  were  to  accompany  them  home, 
when  each  of  the  gentlemen  before  separating  from  his  com- 
panion for  the  night  made  known  the  special  object  of  his  visit  to 
Charlestown.  It  does  not  appear  that  Sophia  Grout,  who  was  well 
acquainted  with  the  Stevens  family,  was  at  all  reluctant  to  accept 
the  offer  that  was  made  her.  But  the  difficulty  which  she  had  to 
surmount  in  connection  with  her  family  was  not  small ;  for 
Stevens,  during  the  war  of  the  Revolution,  had  espoused  the 
cause  of  the  mother  country,  and  the  Grout  family  could  not  bear 
that  one  of  their  number  should  become  connected  with  a  man 
who  had  not  been  a  tried  and  true  patriot.  At  length  when  it 
was  found  that  her  determination  had  become  too  strong  to  be 
properly  resisted,  she  was  finally  told  that  if  she  would  marry  an 
old  Tory  she  might,  but  that  she  should  carry  nothing  from  the 
paternal  mansion  but  herself  and  a  cow.  To  this  she  agreed,  and 
on  the  4th  of  March,  1791,  the  afflicted  Grout  family  witnessed 
the  departure  of  Sophia  with  Stevens  for  their  home  in  Vermont.

SALLY  Sawyer7  (22943),  b.  in  Lancaster,  Mass.,  May  7,  1793; 
when  seven  years  of  age  she  attended  the  obsequies  of  George 
Washington,  held  at  the  town  hall  in  Lancaster.  In  1824,  when 
General  Lafayette  visited  Lancaster  she  was  out  with  the  rest  of 
the  town  to  welcome  the  distinguished  general,  and  being  near 
his  carriage  as  he  passed  she  was  favored  with  a  handshake.  She 
m.  May  13,  1841,  Flavel  Case  of  Coventry,  Conn.,  he  was  chief 
of  police  in  Boston,  Mass.,  for  twenty  years,  retiring  in  1840  to 
his  farm  in  North  Coventry  with  the  respect  and  confidence  of 
the  citizens  of  Boston.  He  d.  in  1855;  Mrs.  Case  then  returned 
to  the  Sawyer  homestead  in  Lancaster,  where  she  spent  many 
years.  She  spent  the  last  years  of  her  life  with  her  brother,  Mr. 
John  Sawyer,  at  Wellesley  Hills,  Mass.,  where  she  held  a  recep- 
tion to  her  friends  and  relatives  May  7,  1893,  on  her  one  hun- 
dredth birthday ;  and  I  had  the  pleasure  of  calling  upon  her  in 
January,  1894,  when  she  told  me  of  her  grandparents  and  uncles 
and  aunts,  repeating  many  little  incidents  in  regard  to  them.  Of 
her  brother,  with  whom  she  lived,  she  told  me  that,  when  eighteen 
years  old,  she  took  him  on  horseback,  then  nearly  a  year  old,  and 
carried  him  to  her  aunt's  and  kept  him  a  week  to  wean  him. 
"Yes,"  said  her  brother,  "and  though  I  am  now  eighty-three,  I 
am  only  a  boy  to  Sally,  and  she  criticises  me  quite  sharply  some- 
times." 

Though  so  very  aged,  the  morning  I  called,  her  niece,  Miss 
Augusta  Sawyer,  who  cared  for  her,  was  busily  engaged  so  that 
she  did  not  go  at  the  usual  time  to  assist  her  aunt  in  dressing. 
When  she  entered  the  room,  some  half  hour  later, than  usual,  she 
found  her  up  dressing  herself.  While  talking  with  me  she  sat  in 
her  chair,  and  when  relating  anecdotes  her  eyes  would  sparkle 
and  it  was  very  hard  to  realize  that  she  had  lived  through  more 
than  a  century.  She  was  for  many  years,  and  at  the  time  of  her 
death,  a  member  of  the  Congregational  church  of  Lancaster.

about  1846.  They  then  went  to  Worcester,  Mass.,  from  there  to 
South  Carolina,  then  returned  to  Boston,  where  Mr.  Sawyer  es- 
tablished the  first  firm  in  New  England  to  deal  in  daguerreotype 
findings,  and  later  in  photographic  apparatus  and  material.  He 
moved  to  Wellesley  Hills,  Mass.,  and  later  retired  from  business 
on  account  of  ill  health.  Both  Mr.  Sawyer  and  his  wife  were 
active  workers  in  the  cause  of  anti-slavery  and  numbered  among 
their  personal  friends  most  of  the  prominent  Abolitionists,  includ- 
ing the  late  Frederick  Douglass.  At  their  home,  gatherings  of 
liberators  frequently  took  place,  and  to  the  movement  they  lent 
generous  financial  support  in  its  darkest  days.  Later,  they  iden- 
tified themselves  in  an  equally  practical  manner  with  woman's 
suffrage  work.  Mr.  Sawyer  was  a  firm  friend  and  supporter  of 
Theodore  Parker.  At  Wellesley  Hills  he  was  an  organizer  of 
the  old  Liberal  Society,  from  which  was  developed  the  present 
Unitarian  Church.  They  had  no  children,  but  their  niece,  Au-
