Visitation of the County of Leicester in the year 1019, taken 
by William Camden, Clarencieux King at Arms, Sampson 
Lennand and Augustine Vincent being his deputies. The 
family is that of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham, and 
is an ancient one in the county of Leicester. 

Through a cadet family, this family is represented in the 
Old Northwest by Gerald Villiers-Stuart, Esq., of Columbus. 
Ohio, whose bookplate forms the frontispiece of this issue. 

In a subsequent number of this magazine, the pedigree will 
be brought down to date, arranged upon the Register plan. 

By permission of the designer, we are enabled to reproduce 
the bookplate of Mr. and Mrs. Villers-Stuart, of Columbus, 
Ohio, and Coburg, Canada. 

This beautiful plate is pictorial. Upon a border of Shamrock 
(the badge of Ireland) is the legend "Ex Libris Gerald and 
Maud Villiers-Stuart." The subject of the bookplate (if I may be 
allowed the expression) is " Dromana," like a sentinel serenely 
overlooking the Blackwater. In the forground (the opposite 
shore), a Knight has dismounted and stands bareheaded, gazing 
intently forward with an air of sad reverence that seems to be 
more than fully shared by his milk-white steed. What is the 
Knight's dream ? Is it of the ancient glory of the Fitzgeralds, 
or of his own house ? Nay ! not of these things thinketh he, 
for 't is good-bye, a last good-bye, that he looketh, for he on the 
morrow must fight, along with all his house, against the despoil- 
ersof Ireland, the murderers of his King, whose last dying word 
"Remember," is his own battle cry. Near him on the ground 
traileth the evergreen ivy, humbly raising its head, as if (or his 
*' In Memoriam" wreath, fit emblem of the fidelity of his house. 

The Arms are those of Villiers-Stuart, Baron Stuart de Decies, 
creation 1839, grandfather of Mr. Gerald Villiers-Stuart. 

Arms: Qr., 1st and 4th, or, a fesse chequy, arg. and az. within a double 
tressure, flory-counterfiory, gu., a martlet for difference, for Stuart; 2nd and 
ord arg., on a cross, gu., live escallops, or, for Villiers. 

Villers, Villiers, Villiers-Stuart.

A Synopsis of an Address delivered before The " Old 

Northwest" Genealogical Society, by Horace W. 

Whayman, Esq., Hon. Mem. 

Communicated by Charles Arthur Ridgway, Columbus, Ohio. 

— A broad knowledge of history essential. 

— A particular knowledge of the history of England, Holland 
and Belgium, of three and a half centuries ago and a knowledge 
of the topography and local history of those countries from 
1550 to 1812. 

— A full knowledge of the "causes and effects" of the settle- 
ment and growth of the United States. 

— An understanding of the "waves of emigration" to and 
throughout the United States also essential. 

— The settlement of New England and of Maryland, due to 
differences of religious conviction in England — the settlement 
of New York and Virginia grew out of business enterprise. 

— Eight colonies had existence as trading posts prior to 1G40 
— this date important — marks the culmination of the issue 
between Charles the Martyr of England and his Puritan sub- 

— Emigration to New England almost ceased after nearly 
thirty thousand Puritans had left old England for these shores. 

— The great emigration — "The Exodus" — between 1G20 and 

— The length of time colonies had been in existence prior to 
JG40 was as follows, says Mills* : 
Massachusetts : Twenty years. 
New Hampshire : Seventeen years. 
Rhode Island : Four years. 
Virginia : Thirty-three years. 
New York : Twenty-six years. 
Maryland : Seven years. 
Delaware : Ten years.

— In 1635, a part of the congregation from Dorchester, led 
by their minister, migrated to the Connecticut River, and built 
homes at Windsor. Others from Watertovvn settled at Weth- 
ersfield about the same time. 

—1636, Rev. Thomas Hooker — with others from Newton — 
founded Hartford. Three years later, these three towns in con- 
vention framed the first written constitution in the land. 

— 1634, Rev. John Lathrop and others from Scituate founded 

— 1644, Rev. John Jones, with a part of his flock, left Concord 
and settled at Fairfield, Conn. 

— 1636, ninety families from Roxbury went to what is now 
Woodstock and founded New Roxbury. From this town and 
eastern Massachusetts, during the next century, came most of 
the settlers in Windham county, Conn. New London county was 
principally peopled from Plymouth, the Sound and Stonington. 

— Delaware was peopled largely from Virginia ; the Caro- 
linas from England. 

— Scotch-Irish emigration in the 18th Century from the 
Province of Ulster in Ireland to Casco Bay, Andover, Worces- 
ter, most of them going, however, to New Hampshire. The 
first ship load arrived at Boston August 4, 1.718. Between this 
year and 1782 several thousand of these sturdy folk came to 
our shores — six ship loads of them came to Philadelphia in 1727 
— they formed a great portion of the population of Pennsyl- 
vania at the time of the Revolution. From Pennsylvania they 
migrated along the mountains to western Virginia, Kentucky, 
eastern Ohio, Tennessee and the Carolinas. 

— The Huguenots as early as 1623 some settled with trie 
Walloons at New Amsterdam — 1685 to 1700, largely settled in 
New York and South Carolina ; a few in New England, at 

— At the time of the adoption of the Constitution the popu- 
lation of the United States may divided into four general 
classes : 

I. English : 

a. Cavaliers in Virginia and Roman Catholics in 

b. Puritans, Brownists or Congregationalists in New 

c. Quakers in New England and Pennsylvania, 
II. Dutch: In New York. 

HI. Scotch: FromUlster — most numerous in Pennsylvania 
and New Hampshire. 

1902.] List of Addresses. 

IV. French : 

a. Huguenots in New York and South Carolina. 

b. Walloons in New York and immediate vicinity. 

— Estimated population of the colonies at this date, forty- 
four thousand — many descendants trace eight to eleven genera- 
tions born on this continent since the settlement of Jamestown, 

— One-fifth of the present population of the United States 
are descendants of the thirty thousand who made up the first 
generation, ending 1640. 

— The early emigrants — up to the war of the Revolution — 
consisted mostly of heads of families. 

— If we would understand the deepest meaning in the history 
of the United States, we must j'calizc how closely related are 
the people of the old and new worlds. 

— The migrations of the early settlers — the topography of the 
early colonies — the origin of place names, etc. — worthy of 
special study. 

— The study of evolution of man — the story of his genealogy.

By Walter Rye, Esq., of Winchester House, Putney, S. W., England.* 
(Continued from Vol. IV., page 1-7.) 
Probate Registry — Department for Literary Inquiry. 

Tfciis is located in the south side of the great quadrangle of 
Somerset House, in the basement beneath the General Search- 
room (where the general public pay their shillings to see any 
will or administration). The literary enquirer enters by the 
main entrance on the left, and proceeding through a passage 
with rooms on the right and left, descends by a staircase on the 
left hand to the basement, where are also rooms on either side 
of the corridor. 

Entering No. 9 he finds himself in a large apartment, formed 
by two rooms being thrown into one, and furnished with tables 
and desks for the use of the literary searchers. 

Originally, only six students could be accommodated at one 
time ; but since the autumn of- the year 18S4, when a second 
room was added, as many as fourteen persons can pursue their 
enquiries together. 

The use of the calendars, registers, etc., is under the direction 
of the Superintendent of the Department, Mr. J. C. Challoner 
Smith, a gentleman ever ready to offer valuable suggestions and 
assistance to all all who are earnest students, and not mere 

There are two messengers to fetch the calendars and registers 
as they may be wanted. Nor more than two registers are rier- 
mitted to one reader at one time, nor more than eight altogether 
in one day. 

The Literary Department is open from 10 to 3:30 Monday to 
Friday, and from 10 to 1:30 on Saturdays, except during the 
long vacation, when the hours are from 10 to 1:30 on Saturdays, 
and from 11 to 2:30 on other days. It is closed for a period cf 
six weeks during the autumn vacation. 

The visitor is allowed, without fee, to search the calendars, to 
read and make any notes from the registored copies of wills, 
from the earliest recorded to within a hundred years of the 
particular year in which he makes his enquiry. 

The department was created in 1862, and for many years the 
period to which literal*)- enquirers were restricted was from 1394 
to 1G99; in less than three years after the removal from Doctors' 
Commons to Somerset House, it was extended to 1 George III. 

"Communicated by Horace W, Wiiayman, Esq., lion. Mem. 


1902.] Ge?iealogical Value of Wills. 11 

(1760); and in September, 1884, in compliance with a numer- 
ously signed petition from literary men, scholars, etc., it was 
still further extended to a hundred years from the year in which 
the student makes his search, so that a new calendar and register 
becomes available upon the 1st of January in each year. 

Visitors are only permitted to read and inspect the registered 
copies of wills : the originals are not open to them. 

During the Cromwellian period there is a gap in the records of 
all minor courts ; all wills being proved in the London Registry. 

The registered copies of wills contained in the Prerogative 
Court comencc with the year 1384. 

The Admonition Act Books are complete from the year 1559 
to the present time, except that for 1G62, which is missing. 

The wills contained in the Commissary Court of London 
begin in 137-f, and extend with sundry gaps until 1857. 

The books of the Consistory Court of London contain a large 
number of marriage licenses ; also various ecclesiastical pro- 
ceedings relating to divorces, etc., interspersed among the wills. 

It may be mentioned that amongst the records of the Prerog- 
ative Court are a large number of inventories (many thousands), 
which, however, are unfortunately in a chaotic state, and seem 
likely to remain so. The Principal Registry includes Hertford, 
South Essex, Middlesex, Surrey, and West Kent. 

The districts assigned to the other Registers are those speci- 
ged in Schedule A of the Probate Acts, 20 and 21 Vict., chap. 

The records of the Minor Courts mentioned above, as included 
in the Principal Registry are under the charge of Mr. G. H. 
Rodman, a gentleman of long experience, who is ably assisted 
by Messrs. Cheyne and Rouse. The writings relating to these 
minor courts (Episcopal, Archidiaconal, and Peculiar) commence 
at various irregular dates, some as early as the fourteenth, whilst 
others do not begin before the seventeenth century. 

The enquirer will occasionally find an index extant, whilst 
the wills for the corresponding period are not in the Registry, 
never having been transferred to it, but lost by the carelessness 
or neglect of former registrars in the districts where they were 
kept in past times. 

Besides the above, certain records are preserved here, owing 
to special circumstances, relating to Berks, Bucks, and Oxford, 
the Diocese of Salisbury, and the Archdeaconry of Richmond 

The Archdeaconry of Richmond extended over parts of 
Yorkshire, Lancashire, Westmoreland, and Cumberland. 

For the three Eastern Deaneries (Richmond, Catterick, and 
Borough Bridge), the records come down to 1858. 

For the five Western Deaneries (Amounderness, Copeland, 
Furness, Kendal, and Lonsdale) the records come down to 1748, 
and after that date are to be found at the Lancaster District 

12 Genealogical Value of Wills. • [Jan. 

The following are the official instructions to readers : 

Calendars: In writing for Calendars [each of which is numbered] it is 
necessary to give the numbers [and not the dates] of the respective calendars 
which are required. Readers must replace calendars which they take from 
-shelves in the room. 

Registers: In writing for Will-Register books, the name of the book and 
the folio must be given [e.g., fo : 73, "Juxon."] No reader is allowed to have 
more than two of these books at one time, nor more than eight of them in 
one day. 

Act-books: In writing for Act-books, it must be stated whether Probate- 
Act books or Administration-Act books are required, and beyond this, it is 
onlv necessarv to mention the year or years to which they refer thus — 
" Probate-Act'book, 1697," or "Admon-Act book, 1705." 

Readers must, on each occasion of their attendance, sign their name in 
the book provided for that purpose. 

The following are the regulations concerning the admission 
of literary inquirers to the principle Probate Registry at Som-

3. An order under signature of the President will give the applicant free 
admission for literary purposes during the time specified therein, subject to 
to requirements of Regulation No. 4. This privilege will be liable to forfeit- 
ure for any breach of the rules or regulations, or any injury to, or want of 
care in the use of, the books or documents. 

4. Every visitor will be required on each occasion of his attendance, to 
sign his name in a book provided for that purpose. 

5. The visitor will be allowed without fee to search the calendars of the 
wills proved and administrations granted at a time not less than 100 years 
prior to the search being made, to read the registered copies of wills proved, 
and the probate and administration act books to the same date, and to make 
extracts from such wills and books 

G. The visitor will not be allowed to trace or take an impression from the 
writing of any book or document in the Registry^ or to use any ink in 
making extracts. 

7. No more than two register books can be produced for one reader at 
the same time. 

S. The Superintendent of the department will arrange the days for the 
attendance of those "Who are entitled to admission, and, as far as possible, 
give facility for each person who has commenced a search and inquiry to 
complete the same without interruption. 

\). The Department for Literary inquiry in the Probate Registry shall be 
under the immediate superintendence of the Record Keepers, and shall be 
open at all times when the Registry is open, except for six weeks in the 
months of August, September, or October, commencing from a day to be 
ilxed by the Senior Registrar, when it will be closed. 

10. No book or document shall be searched for, looked up, or produced 
on Saturdays after 1:80 p.m., or on other days within the last half hour of the 
Department remaining open, unless one of the Registrars should otherwise

Bookplate of Alexander W. 
Mackenzie, Columbus, 0. — The 
subject of this plate is bused on 
the legend of the granting of 
Arms to the progenitor of the 
Mackenzies, Colin Fitzgerald. 
The legend is, that Alexander 
III. was hunting in the forest, 
near Kincardine, when an infu- 
riated stag, closely pursued by 
the hounds, made straight in the 
direction of the King. Colin 
Fitzgerald, who accompanied 
the royal party, gallantly inter- 
posed his own person between 
the King and the wild animal 
and shot it in the forehead with 
an arrow. The King, in ac- 
knowledgment of his royal grat- 
itude, at once issued a diploma 
in his favor, granting him armo- 
rial bearings, which were to be 
a stags's head puissant, bleeding 
at the forehead where the arrow 
pierced it, to be borne on a held 
azure, supported by two grey- 

The incident of the hunt was painted by West for the last of the Seaforths. 
He received £S00 for the noble painting, which is still preserved in Brahan 
Castle, Ross-shire. 

The border of the plate is the Thistle, the emblem of Scotland, and Holly, 
the badge of the Clan Mackenzie. Below are the arms of Mackenzie of 
Lochend, differenced, azure, within a bOrdure engrailed chequey of three 
gules and or, a stag's head cabossed, attired with ten tyres or. 






The Genealogical Value of Bookplates. — Dr. c p c Mrs. William King 
Rogers of Columbus, Ohio, recently opened their house for a lecture upon 
bookplates. The lecturer dwelt at length upon the value of Ex-Libris to the 
the student of History, Heraldry and Genealogy. We understand that the 
collection exhibited on that occasion is still on wiew, nnd that Dr. and Mrs. 
Rogers will gladly permit any person genuinely interested to view the col- 
lection. We cannot commend too highly this departure from the prevailing 
custom of entertaining. 

Orton. — The late Dr. Edward Orton, in his book entitled " An Account of 
the Descendants of Thomas Orton of Windsor, Connecticut, bill," did not 
attempt to connect the immigrant ancestor, Thomas, with the Orton family 
in England, though he seemed confident that he came from Leicestershire, 
England. We find in "The Visitation of the County of Leicester 1019, 
Taken by William Camden, Clareneieux King of Anns. Edited by John 
Fetherston, F.S.A.", page l'.>:5, the pedigree of Richard Overton alias Orton, 
in the last generation of which appears a Thomas Orton, who would have

have been identical with him. It is to be hoped that the identity may be 
established, at some future time, without the shadow of a doubt, l. c. h. 

TnE London Society of East Anglians. — The chairman of the Publication

lines of his 'descendants to the present century, and to secure by purchase 
or otherwise the burial place of Governor Stone and to arrange for its effect- 
ual preservation. William J. Stone, of St. Louis, Mo., is President, and 
Edward A. Stone, I). I)., 177 Wabash Ave., Chicago, 111., is Corresponding 
Secretary, who will furnish full particulars to all who may desire further

I. Genealogies. 

Persons of the several names, or families, are advised to furnish the com- 
pilers of these genealogies with records of their own families and any other 
information which they think will be useful. We would suggest that all 
facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service in any of the wars of our country (which may be of mate- 
rial benefit to those desiring to establish eligibility for membership in the 
various patriotic hereditary societies), other service under the U. S. govern- 
ment, the holding of otiier offices, graduation from colleges or professional 
schools, occupations, and places and dates of birth, marriage, residence and 
death. When there are more than one Christian name they should all be 
given in full, if possible. No initial should be used when' full names are

II. Local Histories, Records, etc. 

Massachusetts Vital Records. — The New-England Historic Genealogical 
Society proposes, if encouragement warrants, to publish, by a Fund set apart 
from the bequest of Robert Henry Eddy to that Society, the Vital Records 
(births, marriages and deaths) of Towns in Massachusetts, from their begin- 
ning to the year 1845, whose records are not already printed, or in process 
or contemplation of printing. There are about 190 such Towns, estimated 
to require an average of 150 pages for each, and it is intended to issue, in 
books of 8vo size, in clear type, on good paper, and with suitable binding, 
the records of as many Towns as practicable each year, until the work is 
completed. The plan contemplates a verbatim copy of these records, which 
copy will be permanently kept in the Society's archives, and then printed 
alphabetically, similar to the records of Boylston, Wilmington and Woburn. 
The Society now offers, until July I, 1002, the privilege of subscribing to 
this invaluable series of records at the uniform rate of one cent per printed 
page, which, if 600 copies are printed, will be about the actual cost. This 
includes binding. As only a limited number of copies will be printed, and 
as the type will then be distributed, and the extra copies held on sale at a 
considerable advance on the subscription price, it is earnestly requested that 
all who are interested in the work of preserving the fast decaying evidence 
of the founders of the Commonwealth will subscribe promptly. The records 
of each Town will form a separate volume, and any number of copies of the 
records of an}' one Town may be had, if ordered before the work goes to 
press. All communications should be addressed to Henry Ernest Woods, 
Editor, 18 Somerset Street, Boston, Mass. 

When it is considered that Massachusetts is virtually the cradle of the 
Old Northwest, a large majority of the pioneers of the latter region having 
been lineal descendants of original immigrants to the former, the vast im- 
portance of the above records can be realized. Therefore every historical 
society, leading public library or individual that collects works of this nature 
should without delay signify their endorsement of the work and give it their 
support at the only time it can be of any use — when it is needed to guarantee 
the cost of printing — the only condition upon which so great a work can be 
printed. The reputation of the Society that is undertaking this work is 
sufficient evidence that nothing will be lacking in its execution, either edi- 
torially or mechanically. — Ed.

The Aspinwall Genealogy. Compiled by Algernon Aikin Aspinwall, Wash- 
ington, D. C. Published by the Author. The Tuttie Co., Printers, Pub- 
lishers and Binders, Rutland, Vt. 8vo, cloth, 111., pp. 2o2. Price, $-5.00, 
postage or express prepaid. 

This book commences with a brief account of the Aspinwalls in England, 
referring to the origin and mutations of the name, but making no attempt 
to trace the lineage of the family from its earliest history there. Among the 
settlers at Toxteth Park, near Liverpool, early in the seventeenth century, 
was Edward Aspinwall, who appears to have been a puritan, and it is prob- 
able that he was the father of the first ones of the name who came to this 
country, namely, William and Peter Aspinwall, the former of whom came 
with Winthrop to Massachusetts Bay in 1630. He married in this country 
and had seven children, six of whom appear to have lived to adult age and 
one died in infancy. He returned to England soon after 1(551 , accompanied by 
his wife and all his children except the two eldest daughters-, who married 
and remained in this country ; hence there are none of his descendants now 
in America who bear the family name. Peter Aspinwall, who came from 
Toxteth Park, Eng., in IH^O, is the ancestor of most of those bearing that 
name now residing in this country. The descendants of six sons and three 
daughters are traced in this book, including the ninth generation . A promi- 
nent feature is the ancestry of many of those who have intermarried with 
the Aspinwall family. At the end of the book is an account other families 
of the name who have come to America during the eighteenth and nine- 
teenth centuries. Thus the book may be accepted as an epitome of pretty 
much all that is worthy of note concerning the Aspinwalls of America. In 
order to avoid bulk (which would also increase the cost to the purchaser) 
the compiler has made the biographical matter brief and terse. The illus- 
trations consist of a view of the house built by Peter Aspinwall in Muddy 
River (Brookline), in 1060, and a map showing the location of the above 
house and the land belonging therewith. The book is well indexed. The 
author has done his work faithfully, and has produced a book which will 
prove most gratifying to the many members of the family; but it will also 
be of great use to those engaged in tracing allied families, and it should, 
therefore, be placed in many of the public libraries of this country. We 
wili say, in addition, that the printers have fully maintained their well- 
earned reputation in the mechanical production of this book. 

Genealogy of the Ilibbard Family Who are Descendants of Robert Hibbard of Salem, 
Massachusetts. Compiled and Published by Augustine George Ilibbard, 
Woodstock, Connecticut. U. S. A. 1901 * * *' * Printed by The Case, 
Lock wood & Brainard Company, Hartford, Connecticut 1901 Svo, cloth, 
111., pp. 429. Price, $5.00. 

The book commences with a short, article on the orthography of the name* 
in which the author arrives at the conclusion that the proper spelling is 
Hinbard, though many adhere to the form Ilebard and a few have it Ilib- 
barr. The immigrant ancestor, Robert Ilibl ard, was born in Salisbury, 
England, where he was baptized March l:>, 1(U;>. He came to Salem. Mass., 

with his wife Joan or Joanna , bel ween IGoo and 10$), where ten children 

were born, nine of whom lived to adult age and married. Of these, four 
were sons, from whom all bearing the name Ilibbard — in its varying orthog- 
ranhy~as well as female lines, given in this book, are descended. The mi- 
grations of the family are distinctly shown, a part of the second and third 
generations going to Connecticut, and succeeding generations dispersing 
thence, to western Massachusetts, Vermont and New York, and afterwards

extending their movements to the Old Northwest, and at the present time 
they are found in all parts of the country. Fortunately, many facts relating 
to the early history of the family were gathered nearly fifty years since by 
one of its members then residing in Hartford, Conn., who was compelled by 
ill-health to relinquish the work. Since that time, the family had become 
much more widely dispersed and the author, on taking up the work, found 
it necessary to conduct an immense correspondence — some two thousand 
letters — in order to pick up and connect the scattering links and to bring the 
records down to the present time. The result of that labor, as shown in this 
book, is eminently satisfactory, and displays the fruit of a vast amount of 
work, which is wholly a labor of love on the part of the author. The book 
has good indexes, in 'both the male and female lines, and it has a goodly 
number of illustrations. It also gives the service of Massachusetts and Con- 
necticut Ilibbards in the war of the ^Revolution, compiled from authentic 
sources; winch is a matter of much importance at the present time. The 
prominence of the family, both as regards numbers and the standing of many 
of its members, calls for an extensive demand for the book. The printing, 
paper and binding are all of the high class which the imprint always signi- 
fies. It is illustrated with a goodly number of half-tone portraits of members 
of the Hibbard family. At the present time, we are informed, less than thirty 
copies remain unsold, ami the price of the last ten copies will be $10.00 each. 
Therefore it is apparent that all persons or libraries desiring the book must 
make early application, as the number now remaining is quite limited. 

The Litchfield Family in America [Compiled and Published bv Wilford J. 
Litchfield] Part One No. I October, 1001 8 vo, paper, pp" 1041 Trice, 
$1.50. Address of Compiler, 22 Oakes Ave., Southbridge, .Mass. 
This genealogy is issued in numbers, and the initial number takes up the 
history of Lawrence Litchfield and his descendants. He is supposed to Jin ve 
been born in Kent county, England, before 1020, and he was in Plymouth 
Colony before 1839. Many extracts from records referring to him are given, 
showing his various places of residence, business affairs, etc., and these notes 
contain much information which is valuable to the genealogist. This part 
traces the descendants of Lawrence Litchfield into the fourth generation, 
and this line will be completed in succeeeing parts, when other Litchfield 
families will receive attention. The work is clone in a most thorough and 
painstaking manner, which, if sustained throughout the entire work, as we 
have no doubt it will be, will make this one of the most complete family 
histories yet published. As the introductory matter and index will be 
printed in the last numbers, every patron of the work should subscribe for 
the whole at once, in order to secure it in its complete form ; for such a book 
without an index would be very unsatisfactory. 

History and Genealogy of the Mead Family of Fairfield County, Connecticut 
Eastern New York, Western Vermont and Western Pennsylvania From A.D. 
1180 to 1900 By Spencer P. Mead, LL.B. Member of the New York iJar, 
Sons of the Revolution, and Society of Colonial Wars New York The 
Knickerbocker Press 1001 8vo, cloth, gilt top, deckel edge, ill., pp. ix-f- 

This book is an "advance copy" of the ''History and Genealogy of the 
Mead Family," and contains all the preliminary historical matter preceding 
the Genealogy, comprising 122 pages. It commences with the advent of the 
family in England, which was of Norman origin, and is found in the Norman 
records from 1 1 80 to 1195; the name being de Prato, which was afterwards 
translated into the English name of Mead in various form-; of orthography. 
A Coat of Arms is described on page 6, and a picture of it. in heraldic colors. 
appears as the fron-tispiece of the book. The history of the family in New 
England is next taken up, the first settlers being brothers named (joodmnn 
(called Gabriel) and William Mead, who sailed from Lydd, County Kent, 
England, in 1005, the former remaining in Massachusetts and becoming the 
ancestor of the Meads of that state and the latter going with the tide <a 
emigration to Connecticut, and became the ancestor of the Fairfield and 
Greenwich, Conn., Meads. In succeeding chapters the various migrations

of the family are given. A history of the military services of members of 
the family shows that they figured in all the principal wars of our country, 
from the Colonial down to the Spanish- American and Philippine wars, in all 
of which the family was numerously and quite conspicuously represented. 
We have before us ocular proof of the excellence of the historical part of 
the work, and we hope to enjoy the privilege, sometime in the future, of ex- 
amining and reporting upon the genealogical part, which is now going 
through the press, and we have every reason to expect that it will be done 
in the same manner as the first part now appears. Among the illustrations 
appearing in this book are several historical houses of the Revolutionary 
period, and portraits of prominent men of the family. The printing and 
binding of this book are elegant, which promises a most elaborate and goodly 
sized volume when the work appears in its complete form, and one which 
every member of the family should desire to possess or have access to.

The greater part of this book comprises a " Historical Address On Samuel 
Beruis, with Short Sketches of His Ancestry and Posterity, Delivered in the 
Town Hall, Spencer, Mass., Oct. 29, 1901." * The author, in carrying out the 
work assigned to him, found he had gathered much more material than 
could be condensed into an address to be delivered within the space of one 
hour, and it was therefore suggested that the whole be published in book 
form, in order that none of it might be lost. This was also amplified by 
including other historical papers. No other historical work, worth men- 
tioning, relating to that town since the appearance of the second edition of 
" Draper's History of Spencer, Mass./' in 1800, has been published, and this 
work, besides amplifying and extending the history and genealogv of the 
Bemis family contained in Draper's book, contains much matter of interest 
concerning other persons and events in that old Massachusetts town. It is 
worthy of note that the Howe family, of whom the inventor of tin: sewing 
machine was a member, were connected by marriage with this Bemis family 
and that Elias Howe, Jr., was a native of Spencer. The same family also 
had other quite noted inventors. The descendants of Samuel Bemis are now 
widely dispersed over this country, and many of them are filling honorable 
positions. The book is copiously illustrated with portraits, views of resi- 
dences and other objects of interest. It should find a place with Draper's 
Historvin all libraries which are so fortunate as to possess that work (as well 
as iu all such as do not, that have a special bistoric-genealogica! collection.) 
It should be noticed that this book bears upon its titlepage the legend 
" Vol. I, ," which indicates more to follow. The same fact is also shown 
under the head of Books in Preparation on page 20. The contents of the 
book would have been more easily accessible had there been a full index 
of names, and its absence is greatly to be regretted.

APRIL, 19Q2, 

By Frank Theodore Cole, of Coluumbus, Ohio. 

About the middle of the seventeenth century two brothers 
of the ancient Lancashire family of Worthington arrived in 
Philadelphia, bringing with them some fair amount of property. 
After some time one of them went to New England and the 
other, Robert, with his son Robert, a mere lad, went to Mary- 
land, where he bought land in the neighborhood of Baltimore, 
and established iron works, which in due time brought him 
fortune. He then removed to Baltimore. 

Robert Jr. grew to manhood, married and had children. In 
his old age, he lost his wife and, all his children being married, 
he proposed to take as a second wife, a very young woman. 
When his children objected, he divided his property into eight 
or nine shares, kept one for himself, gave the others to his 
children, married his young wife and moved to Berkeley Co., 
Virginia, at the mouth of the Opequam Valley, where he bought 
land, cleared and stocked it, and where in 1731-2 a son was born 
to him, he being then about seventy years of age. While this 
boy was still an infant, the father died while returning from a 
visit to Baltimore. His young widow married again and died 
at a great age in 1798. 

This child, named Robert, grew up with neglected education, 
which defect he remedied by later efforts. His estate increased 
greatly in value during his long minority and was still further 
augmented by his own prudent, management. 

At an early age he married Margaret Edwards of Prince Ed- 
ward county. He is represented as sedate and gentle in his 
manners, yet decided and prompt in action, and a devout Epis- 
copalian. His time was employed in agriculture and in land 
speculations. He was a captain of colonial troops in one Indian 
expedition and, in 1775, raised and equipped largely at his own 
expense a troop of horse, for service under Washington in 
Massachusetts. When all was ready he appointed a farewell 
barbecue at Bath Springs, intending to march the following 

34 Thomas Worthington. [April, 

That night he died of bilious colic. His wife survived him 
but a few years. Of his six children, Thomas, b. July 16, 1773, 
the subject of this sketch, was the youngest. 

The oldest son, Ephraim, was at Princeton College, but leav- 
ing on the death of his father, lived at the Manor, married, and 
died a young man. The eldest daughter, Mary, who married 
Edward Tiffin, afterwards first Governor of Ohio, died in 1808. 
The second son, Robert, also settled in Ohio. 

Left an orphan in early childhood, Thomas Worthington's 
early years were spent at the Manor. After his brother's early 
death, he must have been greatly under the influence of his 
sister Mary, w a woman of commanding talents and rare piety, 
to whom he was devotedly attached." 

From her he probably imbibed the dislike for slavery which 
induced him at a later, date to free the slaves that came to him 
by inheritance. 

At the age of fourteen he chose as guardian Ggr. William 
Darke, a Revolutionary veteran, under whose wise management 
his property multiplied, and who secured for him such educa- 
tional advantages as the times allowed. 

When nineteen years old he desired to travel and his guardian 
refusing his consent, he secretly left home with some money, 
and took passage on a British ship bound to the West Indies, 
from thence to Northern Europe, and home, a voyage of two 
years. He was swindled out of his money, and at Glasgow 
shipped as a sailor, on the same ship and made the voyage up 
the Baltic and back to Alexandria, having at one time barely 
escaped the Press Gang, by the determination of his captain. 
This voyage must have had great influence on his character. 
The experience of such misfortunes and the determined over- 
coming of them developed and trained the energy and perse- 
verance for which he was afterwards so noted. 

He took possession of his property and busied himself in its 
care for a year, till in 1796, he joined a party of young men, 
who started for the Virginia Military District between the 
Miami and Scioto Rivers in Ohio, to locate the land warrants 
of their fathers and friends. 

Gen. Darke's only son had been killed in the battle in which 
St. Clair was defeated and he placed his warrants in the hands 
of young Worthington. The party rode to Pittsburg, floated 
down the Ohio to the mouth of the Scioto, and made their way 
thence by a blazed trail to Chillicothe, where they found some 
twenty houses of the rudest structure. Col. Massie had laid out 
the town that summer, and Mr. Worthington evidently bought 
three lots from him at this time. He located Gen. Darke's war- 
rants on the table lands above Chillicothe. 

Soon after his return from this trip he married, December 13, 
1790, being then twenty-three years of age, Eleanor Van Swear- 
ingen, only daughter of Josiah Van Swearingen, deceased, at the 
residence of her aunt, Mrs. Shepherd, in Berkeley (now Jeffer- 

1902.] Thomas Worthington. 35 

son) county, Virginia.* Her mother was Phebe, dau. of James 
Strode of near Martinsburg, Berkeley county. General For- 
man, a British officer, who had married a daughter of the Duke 
of Hamilton, had been sent to the colony on affairs of some 
moment. This wife and daughter, Annie, accompanied him. 
The latter became the wife of James Strode and died in 1784 
leaving four daughters, the third of whom, Mrs. Van Swearin- 
gen, died a few days after her mother. She was followed seven 
years<later by her husband. They left one daughter, Eleanor, 
and three younger sons. The grandfather Strode cherished 
great affection for this granddaughter, and on his death, be- 
queathed to her the mother's share of his estate (excluding 
her brothers). To this was added the fourth part of her fath- 
er's estate. 

These young people were thus possessed in their united 
fortunes of large wealth, and were at the same time independent 
of control. The inbred nobleness of their character permitted 
them to use their wealth and independence for justice and the 
good of their fellow men, and their calm Christian faith tem- 
pered their acts with mercy, benevolence and self renunciation. 

They determined to free the slaves that they had inherited, 
and as the law of Virginia then required that the manumitted 

*Gerret Van Swearingen was born in Becmsterdaih, Holland, in 1626'. In 1656 he was 
appointed supercargo ol the Dutch West India Company's ship Prince Maurice, sailing with 
emigrants and supplies to the Delaware River. They sailed Dee. 21, 165C, and on March 8, 
1657, the ship was wrecked on Fire Island, oil the south coast of Loner Island. The party 
and a portion of the cargo was rescued, taken to New Amsterdam and finally sent on their 
way in the ship Beaver, arriving at New Castle, Del.. April 25. There he obtained his dis- 
charge from the service of the company, and engaged in business. He was soon appointed 
clerk and commissary, and in a letter of Dec. 8, 1759, lie says that he had been sheriff, was 
just appointed second councelor, and had married. His wife was Barbarah de Barrette, b. 
in Valleneiennes, France. 

In 1664 the English took possession of New Castle and ho soon moved to Mi) ryland. where 
in April, 1669, with his wife and two children he was naturalized by act of the General 
Assembly held at St. Mary's. The significance of this action is found in the fact, that only 
British subjects could hold land. He was an innholder in St. Mary's and owned land in 
that county and also in Talbot county, on the eastern shore. In 166S he was an alderman 
of St. Mary's and was Sheriff in 1686 arid 1687. In 168-1 he wrote an account of the settlements 
on the Delaware River, probably in the interests of Maryland in the boundary dispute with 
William Fenn. 

His wife Barbarah d. in 1670 and he m. Mary Smith of St. Mary's, the antenuptual settle- 
ment being signed Oct. 5, 1676. He d. IG'AS and his widow some years after. Of his four 
sons, the oldest, Zaeharias, b. in New Castle about 1663, lived in St." Mary's county. In his 
will refers to his wife and and daughter, Jane. The third sou, Joseph, was b. at St. Mary's 
1697, and tlie youngest, Charles, probably died before his mother, as he is mentioned in the 
father's will and not in the mother's. 

The second son, Thomas, 2 was b. at St. Mary's 1665, lived in Somerset Co., Md., on the 
eastern shore, where he owned land and d. 1710 having four sons. Thomas, Van. Samuel 
and John. We are only concerned with the first two. Thomas, 3 b. in Somerset Co., 1688; 
m. Lydia Riley (b. 1691 ; d. 17tM>. About 17:'.! he settled near the present site of Shepherds- 
town, in Berkeley (Jefferson) Co., Va. (now VV. Va.), where he passed his life, having accu- 
mulated much land, which remained in the possession of his descendants over a century.. 
He left two sons, Thomas 4 and Van.* '

m "Washington Co., Md. (across the Potomac from Berkeley Co.). Finding his land covered 
by a former grant— the Ringgold Manor— he leased the land for his own life and two of his 
sous, audit was held by them for nearly ninety years. He lived to be 109 years old. He 
had six sons and six daughters, the second of whom Sarah* (b. Nov. 20, 1722; d. Nov. 1, 
1766), m. her cousin Van Swearingen in June. 17-'.:;.

slave be provided with a home they decided to settle them in 
Ohio, whose fertile soil Mr. Worthington had seen the previous 

The land of Gen. Darke, near Chillicothe, was purchased, and 
with his brother-in-law, Dr. Edward Tiffin, Mr. Worthington set 
out on May 1, 1797, arriving at Chillicothe on the 17th. 

In a letter to his wife he says they found the greatest change 
from the year before, some hundred houses in the town and 
probably one hundred and fifty families within a circle of twelve 
miles, four shops fairly well stocked, and a good class of people 
as settlers. He determined to move there himself, and during 
the summer built a house on the block bounded by the present 
Paint and Walnut streets. This was the first house in the place 
to have glass in the windows. Dr. Tiffin also built a house that 
summer and early in the fail they returned to Berkeley, where, 
Nov. 20, 1797, his first child, Mary, was born. 

The winter was spent in preparation and in the latter part of 
the following March the party started for their new home, Mr. 
and Mrs. Worthington and child, his brother Robert and his 
family, Dr. Edward Tiffin and his wife and two younger broth- 
ers of Mrs. Worthington.* 

They took with them plate, china, damask, and- other evi- 
dences of their wealth ; bulbs, roots, flower seeds, shrubs, and 
domestic animals, and were accompanied by a large company 
of freedmen whom Mr. Worthington settled on parts of his land, 
allowing them to purchase a freehold, by gradual payments, if 
they desired. 

They followed the usual route, to Pittsburg by carriage, to 
the Scioto by flat boats, and through the woods by trail to the 
new home, where they arrived i\pril 17, 1798. By the help of 
their followers they were soon comfortably settled, and the 
gardens bloomed with the familiar flowers. Mr. Worthington 
was then twenty-five years old. 

In 1796 Mr. Worthington had evidently solicited appointment 
as Deputy Surveyor General, for in December of that year

Rufus Putnam wrote him promising an appointment (St. Clair 
Papers, 11.413), and in February, 1798, he was given a contract 
to survey the district between the Ohio Company's purchase 
and the Scioto River. Therefore most of that first summer and 
fall must have been spent in the woods. He seems to have 
been appointed a Major of Militia, and in the following year to 
have been much offended at the appointment by Gov. St. Clair 
of Samuel Finlay, as Colonel, feeling that he should have 
received the honor (St. Clair Papers, II. 252.) In the summer 
of his arrival he was elected, as was also Dr. Tiffin, to the first 
Territorial Legislature which met at Cincinnati February 4, 1799, 
nominated ten candidates for the Legislative Council and ad- 
journed to September 16 following, and finally convened on the 
25th. Dr. Tiffin was chosen speaker, Mr. Worthington's name 
appears on one of the three standing committees and on six of 
the nineteen special ones. 

At that time William H. Harrison was Secretary of the Ter- 
ritory. His family were away and he received Mr. and Mrs. 
Worthington into his house, which they continued to occupy 
during the session, and after Mr. Harrison's election to Congress. 

In the spring of 1800 he was in Philadelphia, at his own ex- 
pense, urging on Congress, through Mr. Harrison the Delegate, 
the subdivision of the surveyed sections of land into half and 
quarter sections, that the poorer emigrants might be able to 
purchase. During that summer he erected on Paint Creek the 
first mills of any consequence in the region, and there May 10, 
1800, his second daughter, Sarah, was born. 

In 1800 a proposition was made to divide the territory, and 
Mr. Harrison was made chairman of a committee to report a 

On May 28, 1800, Governor St. Clair addressed him recom- 
mending a division into three parts. The first bounded on the 
west by the Scioto River, with the capital at Marietta. The 
second bounded on the west by a north and south line from 
opposite the Kentucky River and with Cincinnati as the capital, 
and the third to the Mississippi River with Vincennes as the 
capital. As this would delay the formation of the eastern part 
into a state, Mr. Harrison in the interests of the state party 
reported in favor of the line from the mouth of the Great Miami. 
The new western division was called Indiana Territory, and 
Harrison was appointed its Governor. William McMillan of 
Cincinnati was elected for Harrison's unexpired term as Dele- 
gate and Paul Fearing of Marietta for the new term, December,

Mrs. Villiers obtained a patent from King William, in 1699, 
granting her the privilege to enjoy the same title and pre- 
cedence as if her husband had survived his father, and had 
actually been possessed of the honor of Viscount Grandi- 
son. She married with Lieut.-Gen. William Steuart, M.P.,

Contributed by William B. Mills, Chillicothe, Ohio. 

The Methodist graveyard, corner of Chestnut and Cherry 
streets, was leased to the Methodists about 1830 by Gov. 
Thomas Worthington, for 99 years, renewable forever ; being 
a part of a subdivision he had added to Chillicothe. 

The old Methodist meeting house, though altered into a liv- 
ery stable, still stands on the N. E. corner of the alley between 
Paint and Walnut streets. In 1848, the congregation amicably 
divided, one portion building the church on East Main street, 
now known as Trinity M. E. Church, the other portion of the 
congregation remaining in the old church until 1852, when they 
built the Walnut Street M. E. Church, selling the old meeting 
house to the congregation of St. Mary's Catholic Church. 

Both congregations continued to use this burial ground until 
about 1890, when its neglected appearance led the citizens in the 
vicinity to have the city council declare the place a nuisance, 
and order it abandoned. Some of the graves in the burial 
ground were unmarked.

Bureau of Kingsbury Ancestry. — Mr. Joseph Addison Kingsbury, of 038 
Penn Ave., Pittsburg, Penn., author of "Genealogy by the name of Kings- 
bury," proposes to have " a place whf re Kingsbury items may be sent, where 
they will be preserved, where the information may be available to inquirers 
and issued in supplemental pamphlets." We think it is a very commend- 
able plan, and would be glad to see it generally adopted by those who may 
publish genealogies of families. Of course, the expense should not be allowed 
to fall wholly upon the person who voluntarily takes the burden upon him- 
self, but should be shared by members of the family who enjoy the benefit 
of his work. 

James. — We are pleased to note that Professor Edmund Janes James, late 
of the University of Chicago, has been elected President of 1he North- 
western University at Evanston, 111. President James is a member of this 
Society, and is quite enthusiastic on the subject of genealogy, lie lias col- 
lected a goodly amount of material relating to families in the Old Northwest, 
and we hope to receive from him, in the near future, some interesting con- 
tributions for The Quarterly. 

The Minnesota Historical Society. — The library of this society contains 
of American genealogies 1,321 bound volumes and 647 pamphlets, besides 
many books in this class published by societies, others giving genealogies of 
many families collectively, and the genealogical portion of township histories. 
These collections are free for the use of readers and students, and are much 
consulted by those tracing lines of ancestry. 


The department of Queries is free to members of this Society, only. To all others a 
charge of ten cents per line will be made. 

Persona sending queries to Thk Quarterly should give their names nnd P. O. addresses. 
Replies to queries should, in all eaten, be sent to the Editor, for insertion in Thk Quarterly.

I. Genealogies. 

Persons of the several names, or families, are advised to furnish the com- 
pilers of these genealogies with records of their own families and any other 
information -which they think will be useful. We would suggest that all 
facts of interest illustrating family history or character he communicated, 
especially service in any of the wars of our country (which may he of mate- 
rial benefit to those desiring to establish eligibility for membership in the 
various patriotic hereditary societies), other service under the U. S. govern- 
ment, the holding of other offices, graduation from colleges or professional 
schools, occupations, and places and dates of birth, marriage, residence and 
death. When there are more than one Christian name they should all be 
given in full, if possible. No initial should be used when full names are 

Adams. — Hon. Andrew N. Adams, Fair Haven, Vt„ proposes to complete 
and publish during the ensuing year (provided a sufficient number of sub- 
scriptions can be obtained to guarantee the expense of printing and distri- 
bution) the genealogical records, of the descendants of William Adams, who 
was born in Shropshire, Eng., Feb. 3, 1594 ; came to America in 162S, locating 
first in Cambridge, Mass., but removing in 1G42 to Ipswich, where he pro- 
cured a large tract of land in the part which is now Hamilton — a farm still 
owned by the family. The book will comprise 500 pages — possibly more— 
and there will be only a limited number of copies. The records of numerous 
collateral families will be given, as far as possible, and the book will contain 
interesting illustrations. The author is a member of the New England His- 
toric Genealogical Society and of the "Old Northwest," and has had large 
experience in genealogical work, having published no less than three volumes 
of histories of various Adams families, besides other historical books. The 
price to advance subscribers for this book will be $5.00 per copy, including 
cost of delivery, and will, likely, be higher after publication. Orders should 
be sent to above address. 

Clements, Diltz, Vecder, etc. — Lewis H. Clement, No. 321 Seventeenth St., 
Toledo, Ohio, is compiling a genealogy of the Clement family, descendants 
of Jan Clement, who emigrated from Holland in 1665 and located on Long 
Island, the descendants later moving to Central New York. Intermarried 
with this family are the Boquet (or Bokee), Bradt (or Bratt), Yeeder (or 
Vedder), Diltz/Legg, Green and Halsted families. Mr. Clement desires to 
hear from any one knowing anything of any of these families. 

Cleveland. — Mr. Edmund Janes Cleveland, 191 Sigourney Street, Hartford, 
Conn., is compiling Volume IV. Supplement to Cleveland Genealogy. Sev- 
eral illustrations have been prepared, and the book will be out within the 
next two years. The index of Vol. IV. will comprehend the thousands of 
names scattered throughout the text of Vols. I., II. and III., of persons and 
places. There will be a continued index to ancestors ; also, two new indexes 
respectively of coats of arms and crests throughout, and an index analytical 
of the subject matter in the entire work. Numerous new synonyms of sur- 
names will appear, many of them from the Armory. 

Olmsted.— Mr. Rollin II. Cooke, of Pifctsfield, Mass., hopes to publish his 
genealogy of the Olmsted family during this year. 

SJ:if. — Mr. R. F. Skiff, of Iowa Falls, Iowa, is collecting material for a 
history of the descendants of James SkifTe, one of the pioneer settlers of 
Sandwich, Mass. 

Walker. — The Genealogical History of Walkers and Allied Families of 
Virginia, begun ten years ago, is now in press and it is desired to ascertain

as soon as possible how many copies are wanted, as only a limited number 
will be printed. The work contains records and biographical sketches of 
prominent members of the following collateral families : Abernathy, Bates, 
Bernard, Bryan, Campbell, Clayton, Coalter, Crawford, Hays, Houston, In- 
rnan, Logan, Moore, Morrison, McPheeters, Patterson, Polk, Smith, Stuart, 
Scott, Still, Taylor, and many others. The book will contain about 1000 
pa^es, nearly sixty illustrations, and will be well indexed. Those desiring 
copies should apply to the author, Mrs. J. B. White, 016 East 3Gth St., 
Kansas City, Mo. 

Webster— Rev. Melville R Webster, D.D., of Niagara Falls, N. Y., is pre- 

aring a genealogy of the Webster family of which the celebrated American 

exicographer, Noah Webster, was a member. 

II. Local Histories, Records, etc. 

Connecticut Men in the Revolution. — The Connecticut Historical Society has 
sufficient material at hand to make another volume of the same size as the 
one recently published. It consists not of rolls, but of returns forwarded 
from the different towns to the Colony and State authorities, giving the 
names of soldiers serving from each town, and lists of soldiers prepared by 
their commanding officers, giving the. town from which each soldier came. 
The Society hopes to publish this material soon, and would welcome the 
knowledge of other unpublished rolls or lists which might add to the interest 
of the volume. 

The Blood Royal of Britain Being a Complete Table of all the Descendants 
noiv living of Edward IV. and Henry VII. Kingt of England, and James III, 
King of /Scotland and all subsequent Sovereigns of these Realms By the Marquis 
of Ruvigny and Raineval Author of " The Legitimist Kalendar," " Montray 
of Seafield and Iiosedie," etc. — Messrs. T. 0. & E. C. Jack, of Edinburgh, 
Scotland, announce that they have in course of preparation the above very 
important work, which will be published in 1902. It will contain complete 
tables of all the living descendants of Edward IV. and Henry VII. , Kings 
of England, and James III., King of Scotland, and all the subsequent Sover- 
eigns of these Realms, now numbering several thousand. Among the 
descendants of King Henry's eldest daughter, the Queen Consort of Scot- 
land, will be found the names of every crowned head, with the exception of 
the Kings of Norway and Servia, and the Princes of Monaco and Montene- 
gro, and of the members of all the royal and princely houses of Europe, and 
of many of the higher nobility of France, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Poland, 
Bohemia and Portugal. In order to render the work more complete, the 
issue of morganitic marriages have been traced out and included. The de- 
scendants of the younger daughter, Mary, Queen Consort of France, Duchess 
of Suffolk — by far the more numerous — are almost exclusively confined to 
members of the British nobility and their descendants in England, the 
Colonies, and America, and are found in every class and station. The names 
of all those persons entitled to quarter the Royal Arms will be designated 
by a sign. There will be an alphabetical list of names at the end of the 
work. Lnlike other works on Royal Descents, in which only the names of 
those who may have paid are inserted, no charge or condition will be made 
in the present work of any name— the object of thecompiler being to include 
every one who can show a genuine descent from any of the Sovereigns 
named. In future volumes it is proposed to treat the descendants of King- 
Edward III. in a similar manner, and the author invites the cooperation of 
all having Royal Descents in order that his work may be as complete as 
possible. The illustrations will be of Royal and Illustrious Personages who 
appear in the line of descent. They will include four photogravure plates 
and about sixteen full-page illustrations printed separately from the text; 
also, as a frontispiece, a facsimile in Colors of the page of the beautifully 
illuminated Missal, originally belonging to the Countess of Richmond (now 
in possession of Exeter College, Oxford), which contains the only record of 
the birth of King Henry VII. The work will be issued in one handsome 
volume, bound in cloth, with design in gold, and gilt top, at £2, 2s. net

The History of Old and New Ross, in the County of Wexford. — Mr. Elliot Stock, 
62 PaternoBter Row, London, E. C, Eng., has now in press, and will issue 
shortly a work bearing the above title. It will be the second volume of the 
" History of Wexford," (Ireland), compiled from Ancient Records, the State 
Papers, and the Manuscripts of the late Herbert F. Hore, Esq., of Pole-Ilore, 
in that county. In this work, as stated in the prospectus, " an attempt has 
been made, on a hitherto novel method, to present in an amalgamated and, 
if possible, connected series those materials of Irish history which have 
descended to us in the Chronicles and Records of past events, written by 
contemporary actors in the scenes described. " There will be copious notes 
of reference, and the sources of statements appended.

Governor William Bradford, and his son, Major William Bradford. By James 
Shepard. New Britain, Conn., James Shepard, 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 104. 
Price, by mail postpaid, $2.10. 

The book opens with a short sketch giving the origin of the name of 
Bradford, and the ancestry of Governor Bradford is traced to his grand- 
father, William, of Austeriield, Yorkshire, England, who was living there 
in 1575, and his burial is recorded January 10, 1595-6. His eldest son, 
William, whose wife was Alice Hanson, was the father of Governor Bradford, 
and was baptized March 19, 1589. The next 02 pages are devoted to a biog- 
raphy of Governor Bradford, and this is believed to be the only volume 
devoted to his life. His eldest son w r as Major William Bradford, who was 
born June 17, 1624, and died Dec. 12, 1671. A short sketch of his life is 
given, ending with the names of his fifteen children, by three wives, together 
with dates of birth and death and their marriages, which will enable many — 
with the genealogical material now available— to trace their descent from 
Governor Bradford, of Mayflower fame. The author traces his own descent 
through Meletiah Bradford, daughter of Major William, who married \Tolm 
Steele, and brings the line down to his daughter who is nine generations re- 
moved from Governor Bradford. The book is neatly printed, on heavy paper, 
illustrated with half-tone and line engravings which are of historical inter- 
est, and has an index of persons. This is a most valuable book for all who 
are interested in Pilgrim history, and of special interest to all Bradford 
descendants. As the edition is limited, and is being rapidly exhausted, all 
desiring it should send their orders to the author without delay. 

The Dorrance Family in the United States A Partial Record. Published by 
A. A. Dorrance Coldwater, Mich. Press of W. C. Bailey Coldwater 
March A.D. 1901 8vo, paper, pp. 24. 

This small pamphlet claims to be nothing more than a partial record of 
the Dorrance family in America, who were descendants of Rev. Samuel Dor- 
rance, who was born in Scotland, A.D- 1685; received the honors of the 
University of Glasgow in 1709, was licensed to preach in 1711, and emigrated 
to America about 1720, in company with three brothers, and settled in Vol- 
untown (now Sterling), Windham county, Conn. Two sons served in the 
American army in the Revolution, and a grandson served in the War of 1812. 
Besides the descent of the Kev. Samuel Dorrance, that of his brother James 
is given, together with many interesting historical items. At the conclusion 
of his pamphlet, the author says: "Being well advanced in years myself, 
I have thought proper to give my relatives such evidence as I have, without

delay, and let others complete the work I have left undone." This is indeed 
a good foundation, and we hope some younger member of the family may 
at some future time rear upon it an equally good superstructure, thus mak- 
ing a complete genealogical history of the Dorrance family. 

The Greene Family in England and America with Pedigrees. [Compiled by 
Gardner Greene of Norwich, Conn., and Frederick Amory of Boston, Mass.] 
Boston Privately Printed 1901 8vo, buckram, pp. 1474-9 pedigrees. 
In this book, the compilers disclaim any attempt to give " a complet9 
genealogy, but rather to enable the members of that branch with which 
they are more immediately connected, to trace their line to the English an- 
cestry and to show the descent from the emigrant directly to Nathaniel 
Greene, who died in Boston in 1714, and more especially to the families of 
his two sons, Benjamin and Gardiner Greene of Boston, with only such 
occasional references to collateral branches as would aid those who may so 
desire, to follow out the lines at their leisure." They intimate that another 
person is now preparing a genealogy of the family, and they have therefore 
omitted much valuable material, which did not seem consistent with their 
plan and which they expect to find incorporated in the latter work. The 
branch of the family represented in this book settled in Rhode Island in 
1635, and have intermarried with other noted families in New England and 
elsewhere, among whom are : Almy, Amory, Chandler, Copley, Ely, Gardi- 
ner, Gorton, Gould, Hubbard, Perkins, Potter, Sayles and Timmins, all of 
whom are clearly shown in the Pedigree Charts at the end of the book. The 
book is beautifully illustrated with half-tone cuts of English and American 
views, a coat-of-arms in colors, and family portraits, and has a full index of 
names. The printing and binding are both elegant and substantial and the 
volume reflects much credit upon the printers as well as the compilers. 

The Washington County Branch of the Heath Family — Genealogical Record. By 
Stuart C. Wade. (From the Greenwich [N. Y.] Journal, Sept. 4, 1901, 
pp. 5.) 

The history of these adventurous pioneers who settled in Greenwich and 
its vicinity was published in the local newspaper with the object of evoking 
responses and information from other, and scattered, members of the family, 
the author having undertaken the preparation of a genealogy of the Heath 
family. These notes contain matter of considerable interest, and we hope, 
sometime in the future, to see them expanded into a good sized genealogy 
of the Heath family. 

The Phelps Family in America, and (heir English Ancestors, with copies of Wills, 
Deeds, Letters, and other Interesting Papers, Coats of Arms and Valuable Records. 
Compiled by Judge Oliver Seymour Phelps, of Portland, Oregon, and 
Andrew T. Servin, of Lenox, Mass. In Two Volumes. Published by 
Eagle Publishing Company, of Pittsfield, Mass. 1S99. 111., Svo, cloth, 
pp. 832, 833-1 8(35. Price, $15.00. 

This work opens with an account of the Phelps family in Europe, which 
extends to page 07, and contains much valuable and interesting information 
regarding the early history of this important family. The orthography of 
the name, Coats of Arms granted to various members of the family, and 
many interesting extracts from records are given. John Phelps was private 
secretary to Oliver Cromwell, and served as clerk of the court which tried 
Charles I. His position in the court is shown in a reproduction of an old 
engraving from Nelson's " Record of the Trial of Charles I." William Phelps, 
with his wife and six children, and his brother George, then unmarried, sons 
of James Phelps of Tewksbury, Gloucestershire, England, came to New 
England in the ship Mary and John, sailing from Plymouth, Eng., March 20, 
1030, and arriving at Nantaskot, now 1 lull, Mass.. May 30, 1030. They settled 
in Dorchester, Mass., when 1 William appears, by the records, to have taken 
an active part, in the affairs of the town until iri the autumn of 1635, when, 
with a party of sixty, all members of Rev. Mr. Warham's church, they re- 
moved with their pastor to "Windsor, Connecticut. 1 fere the Phelps family 
was also conspicuous in the founding and development of this new town,

and increased and multiplied its numbers, and from tbonce dispersed over 
the New England states and onward through the Middle states, and soon 
after the tide of emigration turned to the Northwest Territory a colony of 
the Phelps family left the old hive at Windsor, Conn., and settled in Blendon 
township, Franklin county, Ohio. Many of the name, and collateral kins- 
men bearing the names of Allen, Goodale, Kilbourne, Moore, etc., have been 
prominently identified with the history of Franklin county and vicinitv. 
The descent of William is traced to include the eleventh generation, after 
which that of his brother George is taken up; the former ending on pa^p 
1257 and the latter on page 1557. James Phelps, who was born near Tewks- 
bury, Eng., in 1740, emigrated to Georgia circa 1765-8, was of the same 
ancestry as William and George. JLe married in that state and had three 
sons, but his descent seems destined to become extinct in the male line. A 
fourth family is that of James Phelps, who was born in England in 1820, 
where he married Helen Westcott about 1852, came to Canada with his wife 
and infant child in 1854, and soon after removed to Buffalo; N. Y., where lie 
died, his widow still living there with two sons and one daughter. The fifth 
family is composed of the descendants of Henry Phelps, of Salem, who came 
from London in the ship Hercules in 1034, and his two brothers Nicholas and 
Edward probably came with him. This family is quite numerous in Amer- 
ica, occupying 124 pages of the book. Additional families, consisting mostly 
of scattering emigrants from England and Wales, and others that cannot at 
present be identified with any of the original families in this country, fill the 
next 35 pages, and 33 pages are devoted to Additions and Corrections, being 
mostly matter which was received while the book was passing through the 
press. Thus it can be seen that this work probably contains more or less 
information concerning every branch of the Phelps family now to be found 
in America, and any one of the name, whether it be in the book or not, 
would probably be able to find the particular line to which he belongs. The 
work is arranged upon the Register plan, and is thoroughly indexed. The 
printing, paper and binding are all of high grade, and the illustrations are 
good and plentiful. This is a very valuable work for all belonging to Phelps 
or collateral families, and it is also a most useful book for all public libraries 
having a genealogical section. The edition is limited, and the price is sure 
to advance as the surplus copies become reduced in numbers.

This book gives information concerning some fifty-eight early Puritan 
settlers in America, and traces their descent (in the compiler's line) from 
three to eight generations, and shows a great amount of research — more than 
ahundred books having been consulted — and great pains has been taken to 
render every statement accurate. The book is quite profusely illustrated 
with facsimiles of signatures and old documents, tombstones,' cemeteries, 
residences, portraits, etc., and it has four chart pedigrees of families repre- 
sented in the book. There is a good table of contents, which adequately 
fills the place of an index in such a book. The mechanical part is all that 
could be desired, and we congratulate the compiler on having produced so 
good a book. It should find a place in all important genealogical collections 
in this country.

We have been favored by the publishers with a copy of this beautiful 
brochure, which is dedicated "To the grandchildren and great-grandchildren 
of William Young Ripley'' (who was the father of the gifted author), and 
was written for the purpose of preserving for her grandchildren a knowledge 
of their most worthy great-grandfather, and of their ancestry back to the 
immigrant ancestor William lieplye of Hingham, Mass. Some information 
concerning the family in England is also given. The book contains the

History of the Town of Goshen, Connecticut with Genealogies and Biographies 
Based upon the Records of Deacon Lewis Mills Norton By Rev. A. G. Ilib- 
bard, A.M. Goshen 1897 Hartford, Conn. Press of The Case, Lockwood 
& Brainard Company 1897 8vo, cloth, pp. 602. Price, $5.00. 
The book very appropriately opens with a biographical sketch of Deacon 
Lewis Mills Norton, who was born in Goshen in 1783 and died in 1800, and 
who during the latter part of his life improved every opportunity to inter- 
view the children of the first settlers who were then living and obtain from 
them all available facts concerning the first settlement of the town, and thus 
rescued from oblivion much which would have been totally lost in another 
deckade. Full accounts are given of all who served in the Colonial and 
Revolutionary wars, as well as the war of the Rebellion. Full histories of 
the various churches are given (except the Catholic, of which no records 
could be obtained), from their beginning down to the present time, and the 
Goshen Academy, the only secondary educational institution of the town — 
except a young ladies' seminary or boarding school whose term of life was 
from 1819 to 1831 — are well portrayed. The various industries are fully 
described. The most important pari of the book, to the genealogist, is con- 
tained in pages 407 to 572 and consists of genealogies of early Goshen fam- 
ilies. Prominent among these we find the names, Baldwin, Bartholomew, 
Beach, Brooks, Buell. Collins, Cook, Gaylord, Griswold, Hall, Humphrey, 
Ives, Lewis. Lucas, Lyman, Miles, North, Norton, Richards, Thompson, 
Tower, Wad hams and Wright. The next 50 pages contain a complete list of 
marriages (except those from 1786 to 1820, which, unfortunately, were lost), 
from the first settlement of the town down to 1896. The book has a good 
index. This is a good type of the New England town history as it is usually 
constructed. It was made for the purpose of preserving the most important 
historical records of the town, and we have no reason to believe that any 
essential facts have been omitted. As many representatives of the families 
represented in this book are now located in many places throughout the 
West, its great utility in libraries therein is apparent. Mr. Hibbard has 
done his work well and deserves great credit, and the publishers have main- 
tained their standard of excellence in the mechanical execution of the book. 

Rolls and lAsts of Connecting Men in the Revolution. 1775-17S3. Hartford: 
Connecticut Historical Society. 1901. Svo, cloth, pp. xiii-f-375. 
This book is supplemental to the volume issued by the State of Connect- 
icut in 1889, entitled "Record of Service of Connecticut Men in the War of 
the Revolution," and is published as Volume VIII of the Collections of the 
Connecticut Historical Society. More recent investigations have brought 
to light more rolls and additional information not contained in that volume. 
As this was designed to be supplemental to the former volume, it has required 
much patient and painstaking work on the part of the editor to avoid dupli- 
cating matter which appeared in it. As the name of a town from which a 
man came is an important means of identification, special attention has been 
paid to giving the towns wherever they appear on the rolls. Matter relating 
to pay, arms, clothing, etc.. is mostly omitted in the book, as it is not essen- 
tial for establishing proof of service. We have repeatedly referred to the 
value of works of this kind, ami gladly welcome this important addition to 
the list. We are also glad to note the statement of the editor, Mr. Albert C. 
Bates, that the Society has sufficient material at hand to form another vol- 
ume of the size of the present one. The work of the editor has been most 
admirably done throughout the book, and the index is complete, comprising 
90 double column pages of names. The printing ami binding of the book 
are first class, and the only thing to be feared is that the edition will prove 
insufficient to supply the legitimate demand.

These volumes increase in interest and value in direct ratio with the in- 
crease of membership of the Order, and the data of Revolutionary service 
of ancestors. Vol. XIV brings the number of records up to 14000, but still 
contains none who were admitted later than 189G; which shows that there 
still must be a large accumulation of records in the archives of the society 
remaining unprinted. We have before referred to the genealogical value of 
these records in notices of the previous volumes, and are happy to say that 
we think the high standard of work appearing in the former volumes has 
been fully maintained in these. 

The State Historical Society of Wisconsin Exercises at the Dedication of its New

This handsome volume opens with the exercises attending the dedication 
of the new home of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, consisting of 
speeches by officers of the Society, greetings from sister societies, and the 
dedication address by Charles Francis Adams, LL.D., President of the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Societd, which is a very scholarly production and emi- 
nently appropriate for the occasion. The Secretary of the Society, Mr. 
Thwaites, gives a comprehensive description of the building, which is illus- 
trated with numerous views, both of the exterior and interior, and giving 
numerous details of architecture. It is a most sumptuous book and reflects 
great credit upon the Society which issued it as well as upon the man who 
edited it. 

F« 1908 Aegis Published by the Junior Class of Dartmouth College Ob. 4to, 
cloth, pp. 232-f-xl. The Tuttle Co. Printers Rutland, Vt. 
We are indebted to the printers for a copy of this annual of one of the 
oldest and best known colleges of New England. It gives a more extensive 
expositition of the faculty and the various student organizations than most 
books of its class, and conveys a much more lucid idea of the personnel of 
the institution than can be gained from the annual catalogue. The book is 
certainly a credit to Dartmouth, being one of the largest and most elegant 
ones of its kind we have ever seen, and the printers have done their part in 
a most elegant and substantial manner, the illustrations, printing, paper and 
binding all being of the very best of their respective kinds.

Report of the Secretary. 

Columbus, Ohio, January 1, 1902. 
To the Officers and Members of The " Old Northwest" Genealogical Society : 

As Secretary, I beg leave to report as follows concerning the condition of 
the Society during its fifth fiscal year (1001) just closed: 

At the close of the year 1900, the Society had 14(3 members, classified as 
follows: Resident members, 106; Associate members, 13; Life members, 
13; Corresponding members, 12; Honorary members, 2. 

During the year the Society has elected 21 members, as follows: Resident 
members, 12 ; Associate members, 2 ; Life members, 4 ; Corresponding mem- 
ber, 1 ; Honorary members, 3. Three Resident and one Associate member 
were made Life members on account of donating books, leaving a net gain 
of 17 members, and making a total of 163. 

The losses during the year have been as follows : Resigned, 6 ; Dropped 
for non-payment of dues. 2 ; Died, 3 ; total, 1 1 ; which leaves a membership, 
at the close of 1901, of 155, classified as follows: Resident members, 109; 
Associate members, 12; Corresponding members, 12; Life members, 17; 
Honorary members, 5. 

During the year, 15 subscribers (not members of the Society) and 40 
public and college libraries have taken The Quarterly, being a gain of one 
in the two items. The number of exchanges is now 36, a gain of 6 ; making 
the total circulation of The Quarterly 246, a gain of 19. Sample copies ot 
each issue have been sent to libraries and individuals, resulting in a few new 
subscriptions. There has been a greater demand for single copies than in 
previous years. 

The correspondence of the Society has been greater than ever before, thus 
increasing the work of the Secretary ; but the experience of the past year 
demonstrates the fact that so long a*s there is no remuneration attached to 
any position in the Society it is useless to elect any one to relieve the Secre- 
tary of any share of his burdens ; therefore I would recommend that there 
be no Assistant Secretary elected for the ensuing year. 

As The Quarterly is* not self-sustaining, and the income from dues is 
insufficient to meet the deficit and to pay the running expenses of the Soci- 
ety, itseem^ necessary that something must be done to increase the income 
of the Society. If it cannot be done by increasing the dues, which a majority 
of our local members seem averse to, it will necessarily have to be done in 
some other way. Several plans have been talked of, some of which appear 
quite feasible; but thus tar every one has failed to produce results, simply 
for want of the necessary action to carry them into effect. It is to be hoped 
that something more may be done during the coming year to lift the Society 
out of debt and to create a small surplus, in order that some of the needs 
of the library and The Quarterly may be supplied, and possibly something 
be left to remunerate a portion of the labor which is now being performed 
gratuitously. Respectfully submitted, 

Lucius C. Heurick, Secretary.

JULY, 19Q2. 

By Samuel Carrow, Derby, A. M. 

Professor of I^atin, Ohio State University; Historian of The "Old Northwest" 
Genealogical Society. 

Lucius Bliss Wing, a member of the "Old Northwest" Genea- 
logical Society, was born at Wilmington, Vermont, November 
15th, 1822, and died at Newark, Ohio, February 1st, 1902. He 
was a descendant, in the sixth generation, from John 1 Wing, 
whose arrival in America, June 5, 1032, is thus noted by Gov- 
ernor Winthrop in his journal: " Arrived, the William Francis, 
Mr. Thomas, master ; which left London on the 9th of March, 
and reached this port [Boston] after a voyage of eighty-eight 
days, with about sixty passengers, whereof were Mr. Welde 
and old Mr. Batchelder, being aged 71, with their families, and 
many other honest men." 

John 1 Wing, with his mother, Deborah Wing, and his three 
brothers appear to have been considered as a part of the family 
of " old Mr. Batchelder," his grandfather, and a non-conform- 
ing clergyman, whose religious opinions, it was more than 
intimated not long after his arrival in New England, were 
"very much tainted with Antinomian and Familistical errors." 
This accusation came from a theological opponent, but it may 
be admitted that a disposition to think for themselves in mat- 
ters of religion is readily discoverable in the descendants of 
Mr. Batchelder's daughter, Deborah Wing ; several of these 
soon became Quakers. Recent genealogical researches have 
made it clear that Deborah (Batchelder) Wing was the widow 
of the Rev. John Wing, third son of Matthew Wing, and 
grandson of Godfried Wing (Wynge), a well-kown Protestant 
refugee from Belgium, who after a life spent at various places 
in England and on the continent, became, in 1503, minister of 
the Dutch Church in London, where he died September 30, 
1599. His grandson, John Wing, admitted B. A. at Oxford, 
February 10, 1003, became pastor of the church at Sandwich 
in England, to which his grandfather, also, had preached. 
Later, the Rev. John Wing served as pastor of various 


74 Lucius Bliss Wing. [July, 

churches in Holland, but died at St. Mary Aldermary, London, 
about 1630. He was married in 1CI0 to Deborah Batchelder, 
born 1592, and had at least five children ; Deborah born 1611, 
and married previous to her father's death, Daniel, Matthew, 
Stephen, born 1621, and John 1 , who was born 1613. 

June 22, 1624, a license "to pass beyond seas "was granted 
to " Debora Wynge, 32 years old, wife of Mr. John Wynge 
preacher resident of Flushing." This town is in the province 
of Zealand, Holland. 

Mr. Batchelder, the father of Deborah Wing, became a 
prominent and sharply criticised personage in the early history 
of the colony of New Hampshire and, after a troublous life, 
died in his 100th year. The date of the death of Deborah 
Wing has not been ascertained. After a short sojourn at 
Saugus (Lynn, Mass.), she, with her sons, 'John, Daniel, Mat- 
thew and Stephen, removed to Sandwich, Mass. In this town, 
probably named for the English seaport where the Wings, 
Godfried and John had been pastors — or in its vicinity — the 
first three generations of their American descendants lived and 
died. Their chief occupation was that of tilling the soil, and 
such, also, was the employment of the grandfather and father 
of the subject of this sketch, who thus inherited his interest in 
agriculture from five consecutive generations of New England 

John 1 Wing, the emigrant ancestor, married about 1646, 

Elizabeth , and had seven or eight children. His second 

wife was Miriam Deane. John 1 died in Harwich, Mass., in his 
84th year. 

Ananias 2 Wing, born 1651, married Hannah Freeman, was a 
soldier under Capt. John Gorham in the " Narragansett War," 
and died in 1718, fifteen years before Massachusetts made a 
tardy grant of lands in its border settlements to the survivors 
of " King Philip's War," or to their legal representatives. 

John 3 Wing, born in 1702, married, 1728, Mary Knowles ; 
served against the French, probably in the siege of Louisburg, 
and died about 1773. 

John 4 Wing, born May 8, 1732 ; removed about 1767 to 
Conway, Berkshire Co., Mass., where he died, 1822, aged 9S 
years. He was thrice married and had eighteen children born 
to him. His unusual physical strength and health continued to 
the end of his life. 

John 4 Wing's fifth son, Bani 5 , born August 10, 1763, married, 
first, 1788, Lucy Clary, and, second, 1824,Thirza (Flint) Upton, 
widow of Joseph Upton. Lucius' 1 B. Wing was the only child 
of the second marriage. The household of John 4 Wing was 
patriotic ; three of the sons were already in the American 
army and one of them had been at Bunker Hill, when Bani s 
enlisted at the age of 16. His service was on the Hudson near 
West Point. He was attached to the body of troops by whom 
Andre was captured, and witnessed the execution of that 

1902.] Lucius Bliss Wing. 75 

unfortunate officer, October 8, 17S0. In his last years Bani 
Wing drew a small pension, under tne federal law of 1832. 
After his return from the army he remained in Conway until 
1795 when, with his young family, he went northward to Wil- 
mington, Vermont, and there established a home in the wilder- 
ness. Of the life and farm at Wilmington his son has left a 
brief sketch: " It was on the banks of the Deerfield river; 
the hills stretched away for miles ; on the summit of one stood 
the Congregational church, a large and substantial edifice to 
which the entire family for many years made at least weekly 
pilgrimages. Month by month and year by year the home 
made progress ; gradually the timber was cut away, the wild 
choke-cherry thickets disappeared, and sweet mountain grasses 
yielded their abundance. ' In winter this family foddered their 
cattle on the snow and in the sheltered glades, and diligently 
cultivated the three R's. In springtime they made maple 
sugar and famous Vermont butter, built stone walls and cleared 
a patch or two for rye, getting ready in that way to send the 
oldest boy to college, and failing to do this for all, to send the 
others to western New York or the far-off regions of Ohio and 
Michigan, where they could put in practice the lessons they 
had learned in thrift, frugality and self-reliance." 

In 1837 the aged parents returned to Charlemont, Mass., and 
spent there the remnant of their days. Bani Wing and his wife 
were for fifty years members of the same church, and after his 
name and age on the headstone in the old graveyard at Charle- 
mont are added these words : " He was a soldier of the Revo- 
lution, and a soldier of the Cross." He had been an early and 
steadfast opponent of intemperance and slavery. Of his ten 
children five sons have died in Ohio, and four of them at death 
were more than eighty years of age. The mother of the sub- 
ject of this sketch died at the age of 96. To the end of her 
long life " she was blessed with the continued use of her sight, 
hearing and judgment — all her mental faculties"; " her pres- 
ence was a continual benediction." 

Such were the forbears of Mr. Wing, and in them he felt a 
genuine satisfaction, and on one occasion thus expressed his 
affection for the sturdy father and mother: "Inasmuch as 
man does not choose his parents, or the place of his nativity, I 
do not consider that either is the subject of glory or shame. 
Still if I could have chosen mine, I am sure I would not have 
selected any other." 

He felt especial gratitude, also, to his oldest brother, to whom 
he was closely drawn in his early years. Mr. Wing's education, 
in the broader sense of the word, was derived chiefly from the 
circumstances and duties of the simple, hardy life in which he 
v -'as reared. The backwoods farm at Wilmington, and later 
the hill farm in Charlemont, taught the country boy industry, 
thrift and foresight, made health and wholesome pleasures the 
rule of life, and gave their nurseling a strong body, an open 

76 Lucius Bliss Wing. [July, 

mind, a hopeful and cheerful temper. To this excellent outfit 
he added " a little learning," gained from the district schools of 
Wilmington and Charlemont, and supplemented by a few 
months' study first in the neighboring academy at Ashfield 
and, in 1844, at Williston Seminary, Easthampton, Mass., where 
he was enrolled in the English course. For a time he taught 
school in Franklin Co., Mass., at Heath and Charlemont ; the 
last year in which he taught was 1849. At least two years pre- 
vious to that he had followed his older brothers west. Two of 
them had spent some years at the New England colony of 
Marietta; another, Stalham Wing, had become a forwarding and 
commission merchant in Toledo, Ohio, and in Michigan towns 
near Toledo. For him Mr. Wing, as clerk and manager, took 
charge of the steamboat DeWitt Clinton, which made weekly 
trips between Buffalo and Toledo, carrying both freight and 
passengers. This business was followed in summer, from 1847 
to 1853. By that date the railway system had become so fully 
developed that for rapid communication it had superseded the 
steamboat line between Buffalo and Toledo. In winter Mr 
Wing taught school or was a clerk in some business. 

In December, 1853, Mr. Wing removed to Newark, Ohio, 
where his brother Rufus had resided since 1825, and began to 
buy and ship live stock and Hour to the cities of Pittsburg, 
Baltimore and New York. Two or three years later he pur- 
chased about 1,500 acres of government land in Piatt Co., 111., 
"when land there was plenty and almost as cheap as water, 
and it seemed problematical whether it would ever be worth 
any more." This tract, improved and beautified until it became 
valuable, he kept as stock farms for many years. Upon a part 
of it now stands the village of Bement, whose well-shaded 
streets are largely due to Mr. Wing's advice and example, 
which in various ways were helpful in making the village more 
healthful and attractive. 

In I860 he became a member of the firm of Robbins, Wing 
& Warner, bankers, at Newark, Ohio, and remained such 
through his life. In the early days of the Civil War Mr. Wing 
was urged to take the position of quartermaster, but decided 
not to accept it. He went South as a buyer of cotton and was 
captured, December 20, 1802, at Holly Springs, Miss., by Gen. 
Van Dorn, but through his shrewd sense and good humor was 
released without much loss of time or property. His account 
of his experience as a prisoner was published in the St. Louis 
Globe. For the next decade and more, Mr. Wing was busy ex- 
tending his various enterprises in Newark and Illinois, becom- 
ing known to the citizens of his neighborhood and state as a 
man of sound judgment, high principle and helpful aims. 

Since his political faith was at variance with that of a 
majority of the voters of the county in which he resided, his 
civic services were seldom made use of. In 1885 he lacked a 
few votes of being elected state senator. In 1875 he was

elected a member of the State Board of Agriculture and held 
this position for five years, and was once chosen president of 
that body. The origin and success of the Ohio system of 
Farmers' Institutes are due in great measure to his support and 
foresight. A large landowner in Illinois, Kansas and Iowa, Mr. 
Wing's interest in agriculture and in the many problems of the 
country life was intense. Kis appointment as trustee of the 
Ohio State University, in 1881, was a natural result of his service 
upon the State Board of Agriculture and success as a man of 
affairs, who was closely connected with the agricultural inter- 
ests of Ohio, and, at the same time, was known to be a cordial 
co-worker in various movements for the benefit of his fellows. 
Mr. Wing's official relation, to the university was fortunate to it 
and very gratifying to him. He was enabled by two re-ap- 
pointments to give to an institution peculiarly dear to him 
unstinted service for almost twenty-one years ; for more than 
fourteen years he was chairman of its executive committee, a 
member of the farm committee for the entire period of his 
trusteeship, and was twice elected to the presidency of the 
Board of Trustees. The following passage from one of his 
addresses before the university reveals much of his desire to 
further the rural life and farming interests of Ohio, and gives 
a glimpse of the sentiment which, known only to his intimate 
friends, was really a characteristic feature of his inner life : 

"I know a rugged New England farm [in Reading, Mass.], 
which for 240 years has been in the continuous ownership and 
possession of one family. It is to-day owned and occupied by 
a lineal descendant of the old patriarch who took the first deed 
to it in 1654 Eight generations lie buried in the village grave- 
yard, an hour's ride or so from old Andover, their life-duties so 
well discharged that it matters little whether the new theology 
of Andover is true or false. For eight generations the old 
hive has regularly swarmed and the colonies it has sent out are 
established in every state from Maine to Oregon. But a stal- 
wart and dutiful son has always been found in each generation 
to remain and hold the homestead. One hundred years after 
this farm was first settled, the fourth in descent was killed in 
the French and Indian war in a fight on the waters of the 
upper Connecticut (1754). Twenty-four years after that his 
son and successor was in the war of the Revolution, in the 
service of him whose birth and memory we commemorate to- 
day (February 22, 1887), This old homestead is the Mecca 
toward which, in later years, the steps of many a wanderer is 
annually turned. People from distant states, whose names 
appear in the genealogical register, whether of near or distant 
kinship, meet there and make new friendships or renew old 
ones. They provoke each other to good works, one by plant- 
ing a memorial tree, another by placing a stone watering place 
upon the public road, into which the spring is turned ; another 
by some repairs upon the old gambrel-roof house, which, like 

78 Lucius Bliss Wing. [July, 

a grandfather in his corner, still occupies a place upon the 
lawn, and still another by some bit of farm improvement. So 
they pass the summer days, and renew their allegiance to their 
Pilgrim ancestors and the faith of their fathers. When at 
length they separate, and each takes his departure, one to his 
farm and another to his merchandise, the old elm, planted no- 
body knows in what generation, lifts up its arms and seems to 
say, ' Bless you, my children.' " 

In the same address Mr. Wing made an earnest appeal "that 
the wooded hills, the fertile valleys, the springs and water 
courses of our good state might be more fully occupied, im- 
proved and appreciated as homesteads." Such passages clearly 
reveal his love of the country life, with its memories and asso- 
ciations, and that vein of tender sentiment, hidden from most 
but always cherished, which prompted and sustained his 
increasing efforts to lift and strengthen the rural interests of 
his adopted state. 

As trustee Mr. Wing " took an active and appreciative inter- 
est in everything connected with the university. Me sought to 
know personally every member of the faculty and every em- 
ployee." His attention extended to all the forms and features 
of university life, its societies and clubs, its sports, publications 
and amusements ; to the crops of the farm and its live stock, 
to the trees and shrubs of the campus. He watched with 
intelligent interest the erection of the various buildings, and to 
no one more than to him was due the costly and successful 
effort to restore the copious spring which adds so attractive a 
feature to the university grounds. Not a ready speaker, Mr. 
Wing was an excellent listener, and with a humorous illustra- 
tion or an apt anecdote not infrequently closed a discussion in 
the Board of Trustees. While he stood strongly for the up- 
building of the branches which form the foundation of v agri- 
culture and the mechanic arts, he was broad enough to see that 
other subjects had a legitimate place in the university, and 
favored the establishment there of the School of Law. To the 
service of the university he brought strong common sense, 
shrewd judgment, tact, a kindly spirit and the crowning grace 
of unselfishness. In the words of one who knew him inti- 
mately while a trustee : " It is the deliberate judgment of his 
associates, and of others having opportunity to form a correct 
opinion, that no trustee of the university has rendered more 
faithful or valuable service than Lucius B. Wing." 

Neither approaching old age nor the insidious working of an 
incurable malady prevented him from performing his duty as 
trustee with patient fortitude. It was a characteristic act that 
one of the last letters he wrote was to serve the institution 
which he had loved so deeply and so long. He counted it one 
of the great privileges of his life that he had been able to 
render effective aid in creating a potent and perpetual instru- 
mentality for the promotion of human welfare. 

1902.] Lucius Bliss Wing. ' 79 

In the memorial resolutions passed by his colleagues occur 
these words : " In the deliberations of the Board he was never 
unduly aggressive, and while firm in his own opinions, he 
always respected the opinions of others, He was fair and im- 
partial in his judgments, and at all times open to new facts or 
arguments. He was a model trustee. In his personal relations 
towards his associates he was always cordial and friendly. He 
inspired a respect and confidence which deepened into warm 
personal attachment. Our % sense of the loss that the university 
sustains in his death is mingled with a keen sense of personal 

The members of the faculty of the university felt no less 
regret, and nearly all attended the funeral services at Newark. 

In politics Mr. Wing was a Republican of positive convic- 
tions and enjoyed the confidence of his fellow-citizens of the 
same political faith, without losing the respect of his political 
opponents. In 1896 he was one of the presidential electors of 

A few years after his removal to Newark, Mr. Wing began 
to attend the services of the Episcopal Church there, and, 
though never a member, served for many years as one of its 
vestrymen. He was a member of the Masonic order and of 
the Sons of the American Revolution. 

Mr. Wing was married, May 31, 1855, to Mary M., daughter 
of Capt. George and Armenia (Lazelle) May hew, of Charle- 
mont, Mass., a lineal descendant from Thomas Mayhew, a 
merchant, born at Southampton, Eng., 1592, who emigrated in 
1631 to New England, and after taking a prominent part in the 
public life of Watertown, Mass., became in 1641 the patentee 
and first governor of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and the 
Elizabeth Isles. There his conduct, uniting wisdom, kindness 
and firmness, enabled both English and Indians to enjoy 
through King Philip's War "a perfect calm of peace." Later 
generations of this family were noted for missionary zeal and 
philanthropic service. " Mrs. Wing survives her husband, as do 
also their two children, Charles Mayhew Wing and Mrs. Mary 
LaSalle Shield, both of Columbus, Ohio ; another daughter, 
Julia Mayhew, died in infancy. 

In his family life and relations Mr. Wing was exceptionally 
fortunate and happy. He was a devoted husband, a most 
tender and affectionate father, and his home life was almost 
ideal in its cheerful, gracious conditions. Those who knew him 
lament in his death the loss of a genial companion, an excel- 
lent citizen, a sincere friend, an upright and noble man ; 
integer viiae scelerisque purus. 


The first of this family was Hector Mackenzie, eldest lawful 
son by a second marriage of Alexander Mackenzie, seventh 
laird and Baron of Kintail (one of the progenitors of the noble 
family of Seaforth), procreate betwixt him and Margaret, 
daughter of Macdonald of Morell, his second wife, this Hec- 
tor, by a charter under the great seal granted by King James 
IV, dated at Edinburgh the 8th day of April 1513 years and 
25th of his majesty's reign, had the lands and barony of Gar- 
loch, Glassletter and pertinents, heritably disponed to him and 
his heirs male, for military service. He was at the Battle of 
Flodden with the said King, and was thereafter tutor of Kintail. 
He married Anne, daughter to Macdonald of Moydart, by 
whom he had 

John, his eldest son and successor in the above lands, who 
married Agnes Fraser, daughter to James Fraser, tutor of 
Lovat, and second lawful son of Hugh Lord Fraser of Lovat ; 
by which marriage he got the lands of Kinkell, and several 
others in the low country, for which the family has been in use 
to quarter the Fraser's arms with their own. She bare to him 
several children, the eldest whereof was 

John Mackenzie of Garloch, who succeeded his father, and 
married Anne, daughter to Aeneas Macdonald of Glengary, by 
whom he had 

Alexander Mackenzie of Garloch, who married Macken- 
zie, daughter to Roderick Mackenzie of Redcastle, The eldest 
son of which marriage was Kenneth Mackenzie of Garloch, who 
anno 1635, married Catherine, daughter of Sir Donald Mac- 
donald of Slate, by whom he had no issue, and by a second 
marriage with Anne, daughter to Grant of that Ilk, by a daugh- 
ter of Ogilvy Earl of Findlater, anno 1640, he had for his son 
and successor 

Alexander Mackenzie of Garloch, who in anno 1670, married 
Barbara Mackenzie, a daughter of Sir John Mackenzie of Tar- 
bet, by whom he had one son 

Kenneth Mackenzie, who succeeded his father, and, in anno 
1700, married Margaret daughter of Sir Rorie Mackenzie of 
Findon. The eldest son of which marriage is Alexander Mack- 
enzie, now of Garloch who succeeded his father, anno 1704, 
while an infant. 

The achievement of the family, as recorded in the Lyon 
Register, is, Quarterly, first and fourth, azure, a hart's head 
cabossed, and attired with ten tynes, or ; second and third, 
azure, three frasiers argent. Which shield is timbred with 
helmet and mantlings befitting his quality ; and on a wreath of 
his colours is set, for crest, a dexter arm, holding a garland of 
laurel, all proper ; with the motto ; Virtute et Valore.

Rutland, Worcester County, Massachusetts. 


Contributed by David Everett Phillipps, of Columbus, Ohio. 

Rutland, which has aptly been called the "Cradle of Ohio," 
is situated in the center of the state of Massachusetts. Its 
scenery is picturesque and beautiful, abounding in hills and 
vales, brooks and natural lakes. Its principal street (or road) 
one and one-half miles long and ten rods in width, begins at the 
"Old Putnam house" and ascends the hill 1250 feet above the 
level of the sea to the center village, from which may be seen 
the towns and villages in every direction. Mountains nearly 
one hundred miles distant are visible. The blue hills of Milton, 
near the Atlantic, the Highlands on the Connecticut, Wachu- 
sett rises close at hand in the adjacent town of Princeton, while 
old Monadnock rears his rugged outline against the northern 

The territory embracing this town was purchased from the 
Indians December 22, 1086, settled 1713, incorporated May 30, 
1722. Its situation has protected it against the encroachments 
of modern life, although its pure air and fine scenery has of late 
given it quite wide celebrity as a health resort. 

Rutland is rich in historic reminiscence. Its first called min- 
ister, together with two or three members of one of its first 
families, fell victims of the tomahawk of the savage. During 
the Indian troubles, 1723-30, Capt. Samuel Wright, one of its 
first proprietors and foremost citizens, led the scouts who pa- 
troled the settlements from Brookfieid to Lancaster and Sud- 
bury. From 1744 to 1700, in the French and Indian war, her 
young men did valiant and effective service. It was a war of 
races, the Latin against the Anglo-Saxon, for supremacy on 
this soil. Not less than eight companies, under their own offi- 
cers, marched from these hills to the frontiers on the Hudson, 
and Lakes George and Champlain. On their rolls are the

familiar names, Phelps, How, Stone, Wheeler, Moore, Clark, 
Rice, Reed, Davis, etc. These years of training and discipline 
in the arts of war prepared them for the greater contest to 

In the war of the Revolution the town took prompt action and 
furnished many volunteers, who served with honor and distinc- 
tion throughout that great struggle. Two fell at Bunker Hill 
and a score or more were at Dorchester and the evacuation of 
Boston. In 1778, a division of Burgoyne's surrendered army 
were quartered here, extensive barracks having been erected 
for their use. Rutland, however, owes its greatest distinction 
in having been for eight years the home of Gen. Rufus Putnam, 
" Founder and Father of Ohio." His dwelling was built by Col. 
John Murray, Rutlaud's wealthiest and most honored citizen, 
who at the beginning of the Revolution held an official position 
under the crown and refusing to resign fled from the town and 
province never to return. His estates were confiscated and sold 
and this house was purchased by Gen. Rufus Putnam. It was 
in this house, on the 9th of January, 1780, that Gen. Tupper 
reported to Gen Putnam the result of his inquiries concerning 
the "Ohio Country." "The two veterans sat up together all 
night, and by daybreak had formed the plan which resulted in 
the organization of the 'Ohio Company' and its settlement at 
Marietta," and thus Rutland has earned its title, "Cradle of Ohio." 

The old mansion, together with about 150 acres of land, has 
been purchased and its title will be vested in the Trustees of 
National Reservations, to be preserved as a "Memorial of Gen. 
Putnam." On September 17, 1898, a bronze tablet was placed 
at the front entrance bearing the following inscription :* 

*The address upon this occas : on was delivered by Hon. George F. Hoar, Senior Senator 
from Massachusetts, to whom is largely due the preservation of the " Putnam Memorial."

Shortly after the settlement of the town, what is now called 
the "Old Cemetery" was set apart for burial purposes. It is 
located on nearly the highest point of land, near the meeting 
house. It is enclosed by a boulder stone wall, within which 
rest the remains of the early settlers and the fathers and moth- 
ers of those Ohio Pioneers who emigrated from this town 
in company with General Putnam and whose descendants are 
found in all parts of the " Old Northwest." Many of the graves

were never marked, and some stones have disappeared since 
Mr. Smith with such painstaking labor deciphered and tran- 
scribed their records. Many are badly broken, and all bear 
evidences of the ravages of time. 

It is quite fitting, and a source of no little gratification, that 
this Society is permitted to publish, and thus preserve in its 
archives, these records and memorials of some of the pioneers 
of the "Old Northwest."

They were as follows :

He married Deborah Brindley, of Boston. 
Dec. 21, 1769, and as no further record of her 
appears, she probably accompanied her hus- 
band to Nova Scotia in 1774. 

Col. John Murray (John McMorrah) came 
to America in the ship with Edward Savage 
and other emigrants who settled in Rutland. 
His mother died and was buried at sea. 

In a few years the penniless lad. by his own 
energy and ability, arose to be a wealthy and 
honored citizen (see introduction). His first 
wife was his youthful companion of the voy- 
age and the mother of his ten children. _ H> 
second and third wives were of prominent 
families of Worcester and Boston. 

It was about this period (1760) he built the 
famous mansion now known as "The Putnam 
Memorial." (See illustration). 

His second wile, Lucretia Chandler, was 
daughter of the second Judge John Chandler, 
one of the delegates commissioned by Gov. 
Win. Shirley of Massachusetts, in 1754, to meet 
at Albany for a conference with the Indians 
of the Five Nations, etc.. and of concertina 
measures for a union of all the British Amer- 
ican Colonies. This was the germ of that 
Congress of twenty-two years later which re- 
sulted in the union forming the United Stati s 
of America. 

The Chandlers were a celebrated family 
and connected with others of equal note: Gov. 
Levi Lincoln, George Bancroft, the historian, 

Lucretia (Chandler') Murray was sister OJ

Report of the Library Committee. 
To the President and Members of The " Old Northwest'" Genealogical Society : 

Sir — The Library Committee appointed in April, 1901, have to report that 
during the term just ended there have been added to the Library 131 books, 
75 pamphlets, while GO volumes have been bound and thus made available 
to members of the Society and students of genealogy. 

The work of accessioning has been carried on by Dr. Lucius Carroll Her- 
rick, the Librarian. The Library ha 1 ? been furnished with new oak book 
cases, and a desk for the .Secretary has been obtained through the kindness 
of Mr. Charles A. Kidgway. 

Agreeable to a resolution passed in April, 1901, a Library Fund was estab- 
lished and this augmented by the generous gift of twenty dollars from the 
President. This fund in future will probably provide for the carrying on of 
the Library without any special effort on the part of the general member- 

In conclusion, your committee desire to record their grateful thanks to 
James Buckingham, Esq., for his gift; to Mr. C. A. Ridgway, and to Dr. 
L. C. Herrick for his indefatigable work as Librarian and to "the members 
for their ready courtesy and assistance. 

(Signed) Horace W. Whayman, Chairman. 

Report of the Librarian. 

Columbus, Ohio, December 30, 1901. 
To the Library Committee of The " Old Northwest" Genealogical Society : 
As Librarian, 1 report as follows: 

The library has remained, through the present year, in the same room 
occupied by it 'luring the preceding year, but will remove on the first of 
January to a room on the second floor of the Dispatch Building, corner of 
High and Gay streets, Columbus, Ohio. 

Mr. Cole, having use for his book cases, removed the same and other cases 
have been purchased by the Society to replace them ; most of them being 
of the Macy Sectional variety, which have proved quite satisfactory. 

The accessioning has been continued this year by Miss Nellie Herrick up 
to the first of October, since which time it has been done by myself. 

The titles of all books and pamphlets received by the library during the 
year are shown in the Look Notices and Accessions to the Society's Library 
in the various numbers of The Quarterly. The following figures indicate 
the growth of the library: 

At the. close of last year were books, 291 ; pamphlets, 347 ; total, G3S 
Received during the year, " 131 ; " 75 ; " 206 

Leaving at. close of year, " 422; " 422; " S44 

By binding periodicals, the library has gained 13 volumes. 

There have been received for notice in The Quarterly thirty bound vol- 
umes and sixteen pamphlets. The size and value of those donated during 
the present year greatly exceeded those of last year, showing an increasing 
appreciation* of The Quarterly, by authors and publishers of genealogies 
and historical hooks, as a means of making their productions known. 

The need of cataloguing our collection— either by cards or the Rudolph 
system- — is constantly becoming more and more apparent, and a strenuous 
effort should be made to raise the necessary means to inaugurate that work 
during the coming year. 

The library has been open a few hours each afternoon, the same as last 
year, and the attendance by members has been a little in advance.; of that of 
last year, and much more so by those not belonging to the Society. A num- 
ber of the latter, on becoming aware of the benefits to he obtained, have 
been induced thereby to become members of the Society. The importance 
of keeping the room" open at stated hours, and of having it known by the 

120 Official Reports. [Jul y> 

public, is apparent, and it is to be hoped that the Society will, ere long 
make an effort to provide the means for that purpose. 

It is hoped that the new quarters secured by the Society, being more cen- 
tral and accessible, will attract more members and will also be the means of 
inducing others to visit our room. Although our Constitution gives us the 
whole of the Old Northwest for our primary field of action and the rest of 
the United States for a secondary field, still we do not wish to be altogether 
unknown in the community where our headquarters are located, and v,v 
hope the people of the city of Columbus and the state of Ohio will soon g< t 
to know of us, and will manifest their appreciation of the work we are doir^ 
by cooperating with us and contributing of their means and influence. 

Respectfully submitted, Lucius C. Heerick, M.D., Librarian. 

l\EroRT of the Committee on Heraldry. 

To the Officers and Membcn of The " Old Northwest" Genealogical Society: 

Ladies and Gentlemen — The Committee on Heraldry desire to report that 
a considerable increase in the number of persons interested in Heraldry is 
manifest, and that as a result the demand for heraldic works in the several 
libraries within the Society's territory is much greater than in former years— 
proportionately the interest is greater in our own Society than elsewhere. 

Through the efforts of a member of this Committee and others, an exhi- 
bition of Heraldic Look-Plates, drawings and Coats of Arms was held in 
Columbus, at the residence of Dr. and Mrs. William King Rogers, for two 
weeks during December, and it is to be hoped that a similar exhibition of 
these things, upon a larger scale, may be made accessible to the general 
public sometime in the early part of the year. 

As in its report last year, "this Committee has to lament the paucity of 
works of reference in the library, and it again respectfully urges the addition 
of the following books to the Society's library : 

Papworth's "Ordinal of Arms." 

Moule's " Bibliotheca Heraldica." 

Marshall's "Genealogical Guide.*' 

O'Hart's "Irish Pedigrees." 

Edmondson's "Complete Eody of Heraldry." 

Nesbit's " Heraldry." 

Sir James Balfour Paul's " Ordinary of Scottish Arms." 

Elvin's "Dictionary of Crests." 

Burke's "Dictionary of Heraldry." 

" A Complete Peerage," by G. E. C. 

Debrett's "Baronetage." 

Volume Xo. 1 "America Heraldica." 

And the additional volumes of the Harleian Society Publications. 
On behalf of the Committee, Alexander W . Mackenzie, Chairman. 

Report of the Committee on Foreign Research. 

To the President and Members of The " Old Northwest " Genealogical Society : 

Ladies and Gentlemen— The Committee on Foreign Research desire to 
report that during the past year they have been able to help several mem- 
bers of the Society to find the sources of foreign genealogical information 
of which they were in need. 

They have also been successful in urging forward the publication of Eng- 
lish Parish Registers, a work now being carried on by County Societies and

(Continued from April number.) 

The act dividing the Northwest Territory was passed May 7, 
1800, 1 and by its terms— thanks to the activity of Mr. Worth- 
ington and others — Chillicothe was made the capital of the 
Territory of Ohio. There the second session of the first Ter- 
ritorial Legislature met on November 3, and Mr. Harrison's 
successor was elected. 

Mr. Worthington was one of the committee of three selected 
to set forth the position of the Legislature on the controversy 
with the Governor concerning the establishment of Counties 
and County seats. The damage to Col. Massie's speculations 
at Manchester, in Adams Co., had begun the war of the " Vir- 
ginia party " so called against the Governor ; the question of 
forming a State began to be discussed,- and papers were circu- 
lated protesting against the Governor's reappointment at the 
expiration of his term in December. The Secretary of the 
Territory favored the Chillicothe or Virginia party, and to fore- 
stall any advantage to them the Governor dissolved the Legis- 
lature, December 9. 

Gov. St. Clair was renominated December 22, lSOO,^ but not 
confirmed until February 3, 1S01, 4 on account of the opposition 
of the Chillicothe party. Senator S. T. Mason of Virginia 
writes Mr. Worthington, giving him the news of the confirma- 
tion, saying that the charges, though various and some of a 
serious nature, were not supported by the memorialists. He 
also says, "Should your next House of Representatives be of 
the character you expect, I should suppose they might petition 
the new President for the removal of the Governor, with effect, 
and could send proof and documents to support the charges 
against him." 5

122 Thomas Wortliington. [Oct. 

The second Territorial Legislature met November 2G, 1S()1. 
Mr. Worthington was on the Committee of Privileges and 
Elections, and that on Levying a Territorial Land Tax. On 
December 21 was introduced the act declaring the assent q( 
the Territory to an alteration in the ordinance. The object of 
this was to make three Territories, with the Scioto as the west- 
ern boundary of the eastern division. In a letter to Dudley 
Woodbridge, December 24, 1801, Gov. St. Clair says:" "The 
bill * * * is passed and goes to Mr. Fearing to be laid 
before Congress. You cannot imagine the agitation it has cre- 
ated among the people here ; and a petition to Congress against 
the measure, formed by a committee of this town, praying 
that Congress may not consent to it, is in circulation. Mr. 
Worthington and Mr. Baldwin are appointed to go to Wash- 
ington to advocate the petition in person." Committees were 
also sent in favor of the Governor's position. 

The introduction of a bill changing the capital from Chilli- 
cothe to Cincinnati, and the fact that it would be passed by the 
union of the Miami Valley Delegates with those from Wayne 
Co. (Detroit), and Trumbull Co. (Cleveland, Warren), caused a 
riot, in which an attempt to burn the Governor in effigy was 
suppressed by "the splendid exertion of Mr. Worthington." 
The next evening the mob invaded the house where the Gov- 
ernor boarded, and "after they were once dispersed one of the 
most violent returned, and had not Mr. Worthington come in 
about the same time mischief would have ensued." 7 

In the same letter the Governor says : " Can you not convey 
to him (President Jefferson) that J have but five enemies in 
the Territory except some they have misled, and who probably 
never saw me. These are Worthington, Tiffin, Massie, Darl- 
ington and Baldwin." 

Worthington and Baldwin proceeded to Washington, and on 
January 30, 1802, Worthington laid before the President Col. 
Massie's ten charges against the Governor, " attacking his 
official and administrative integrity," 6 together with an argu- 
ment of his own in support of them. President Jefferson 
finally dismissed the charges. 

It soon appeared that Congress would not only take no action 
in support of the Act of the Legislature in reference to the 
boundaries, but that a little management would bring about an 
Act enabling the formation of a State. The desire for three 
Republican votes in the Electoral College after the close elec- 
tion of 1801 made the task comparatively easy, and in spite of 
the efforts of Mr. Fearing, the Delegate and of the Feder- 
alists, the Act was passed April 30, 1802. 

11 Congress, at the suggestion of Col. Worthington, had taken 
care to direct the time of holding an election for Delegates ; 
had arranged the Districts, and proportioned the number of

Delegates to each ; and had provided that the Constitution so 
formed should not be submitted to the people for approval. 
They had also cut off the Detroit District, which was strongly 
Federal, and joined it to Indiana Territory. " ,J 

Worthington returned home in May. In acknowledgment of 
his services illuminations were made through the Scioto Valley 
and salutes were fired about his house by his neighbors. 

The convention met November 1, 1802, at Chillicothe. All 
but two of the original opponents of the alteration of the 
boundaries were members, while of those who had advocated 
the measure but two or three were successful at the polls. 1 " 

On November 4 the Governor addressed the convention, and 
for his criticisms on Congress was removed by the President,, 
with unnecessary insult, November 22, 1802. 

They performed this work in twenty-five days. Mr. Worth- 
ington was a member of this convention and was " second to 
none in influence." 11 

On the first day he was appointed chairman of the committee 
of five on Privileges and Elections, and one of the committee 
of three on Rules. On the second the Committee on Privileges 
and Elections reported, and Edward Tiffin was elected Presi- 
dent. On the third day leave was granted the Governor to 
address the convention. Mr. Worthington was one of the 
fifteen who voted " No." 

He was appointed one of the committee to prepare the pre- 
pare the preamble and first artiele of the Constitution ; also of 
that to prepare the second article, on Executive authority ; of 
the tnird article, on Judiciary ; of the sixth, on Duties of 
Sheriffs, Coroners, etc., and chairman of the Committee on the 
Fifth Article — Organization of Militia ; later, on Committee to 
Prepare Article Comprehending General Regulations and Pro- 
visions of the Constitution, and on one to consider the propo- 
sitions made by Congress for the acceptance or rejection of the 
work of the convention. '- 

The proceedings and Constitution were approved by Congress 
February 19, 1808, and Ohio became the seventeenth State. 

In 1802 Col. Worthington moved from the town of Chilli- 
cothe to his estate of Adena, where a house of hewe d logs, 
filled between the timbers with stones and plaster, had been 
erected, one and a half stories high. This house stood imme- 
diately in front of the present mansion. 13 Here the three 
eldest sons were born. The gardens, groves and orchards on 
this estate excited the admiration of the distinguished visitors 
who were here entertained. This house was superseded by the 
mansion now standing, which was first occupied in 1807. 

On March 1, 1803, the first Legislature met in Chillicothe, 
and Worthington was elected one of the two Senators, he being

then four months less than thirty years of age. He drew the 
short term, which ended March 4, 1807. 

The first session of the Eighth Congress convened on Monday, October 17, 
ISOo, on the proclamation of President Jefferson. Mr. Worthington wag 
present on the opening of the session, as he was at all of the successive ses- 
sions, and on October 21 l presented his first measure, a petition of Harrison 
and others of Detroit to be set oil' from Indiana Territory. As chairman of 
the committee to whom this petition was referred he brought in a bill 
which in due time (December 6-) passed the Senate. 

On October 2<> a petition from citizens of the Illinois country, to be set off 
from Indiana Territory, was presented in the House of Representatives and 
referred to a committee of Lucas, Morrow, Lyon and others. When the 
Senate bill came down it was referred to the same committee, and alter 
amendments, among others changing the name from the Northwest Terri- 
tory to Michigan, the Senate bill was lost, yeas 58, nays 5v). 2 

In December he brought in a bill for the determination of the North- 
western boundary of the Virginia Military Lands, and to limit the period 
for locating them. This became a law March 22, 1S04. 3 He voted for the 
bill for the appropriation to carry out the Louisiana Treaty; for the amend- 
ment concerning the election of President and Viee-Fresident; for the 
repeal of the Bankruptcy Law; for the bill to remove the seat of govern- 
ment from Washington; and for the impeachment of Judge John Pickering. 4 

The Cumberland Road. 

On February PI, 1802, Albert Gallatin, Secretary of the Treasury, in writ- 
ing to William B. Giles, Chairman of the Committee on admitting the 
Northwest Territory to the Union, suggested that in return for the waiver 
by the new State for ten years of the right of taxation of public land sold 
by Congress, the United States agree to expend one-tenth of the net receipts 
from such, in building a road from the navigable waters emptying in to the 
Atlantic, to the Ohio and through the new state. This suggestion with a 
change to five years exemption from taxation and one-twentieth expenditure 
was adopted. 5 

November 28, 1803, on the call of Mr. Jackson of Virginia, the House of 
Representatives resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole to consider 
the appropriation of five per cent, of the net proceeds of the sales of lands 
in Ohio after June 30, 1802, to the laying out and making of Public Roads, 
leading from the navigable waters of the Atlantic to the Ohio River. After 
much discussion the committee reported, recommending the appropriation 
of two per cent. 6 

The next day the House took up the report, amended and referred it, and 
on January 10 Mr. Jackson introduced a bill which, after much discussion, 
passed the" House of Representatives February 15, 1801. It gave the Presi- 
dent power to appoint a committee to explore a route for a road. In the 
Senate the bill was referred to a committee consisting of Smith (O. ), Breck- 
inridge (Ivy.) and Franklin (Tenn.), and was in due time read, debated, 
postponed and finally, on February 28, recommitted to a new committee of 
Nichols (Va.), Worthington (O.) and Dayton (N. J.) It was reported, 
amended and passed, March 27. The House of Representatives refused to 
concur in the amendments and postponed the whole matter to the follow- 
ing December. 7 

At the second session, December 4, 1803, the first thing on the day after 
the reading of the President's Message, Mr. Worthington introduced a 
resolution that a committee be appointed to examine the Act which allowed 
the people of the Eastern Division of the Northwest Territory to form a

State Government, and to report by bill or otherwise. On December 5 
Messrs. Tracy (Ct.), Anderson (Ten h.), Worthington (0.), Adams (Mass.) 
and Wright (Md.) were appointed a committee, and on December 28 
reported that two per cent, of the proceeds of sale of land, etc., amounting 
to $12,652, were available for use, and that by the time the money was 
needed there would be about 920,000. They advised a route from Cumber- 
land, Md., to Wheeling, crossing the Monongahela at Brownsville ( Redstone ) . 

They also presented a bill to regulate the laying out and making of the 
road. The bill was passed by the Senate December 27. 

In the House of Representatives, after much debate, on May 22 the 
motion of Leib of Pennsylvania to postpone indefinitely was defeated, 51 
to 59; that of Jackson of Virginia to postpone to June 30 was lost, 5i to 56 ; 
that of Claiboume, to recommit, by 50 to 58, and the bill at third reading, 
on May 24, passed by vote of GO to 50. 8 

On March 2b' the Senate agreed to the amendments and the bill became a 

It consisted of six: sections, authorizing the President to appoint three 
commissioners to layout the road ; directing that the road be four rods 
wide; directing the President to secure assent of the States through which 
the road passed ; directing how the road should be built, fixing the pay of 
commissioners and employees and appropriating §30,000. 9 

On February 2, 1807, President Jefferson reported to the Senate that he 
had appointed Joseph Ker of Ohio, Kli Williams of Maryland and Thomas 
Moore of Maryland, and giving progress of work, etc., etc. 10 This message, 
with the reports, was referred to Messrs. Worthington, Tracey and Giles (Va.) 
Mr. Worthington brought in a bill appropriating 8250,000 for the road, 
which was passed by the Senate February 20, but after being read twice in 
the House of Representatives, was indefinitely postponed, March" SO, 1S07, 11 
and as Mr. Worthington went out of ofrice that day his connection with the 
Cumberland Road appropriations ceased. 

In this Ninth Congress Mr. Worthington voted for the Administration 
measures, to suspend trade with St. Domingo, to prohibit importation of 
certain goods, and on the debate on British Aggression on American Ship3 
made a speech, the only one that I find reported during this term in the 

He brought in a bill for the relief of the Gallipolis Settlers, was chair- 
man of the committee to whom was referred the bill for the division of 
Indiana Territory ; also of a committee to examine and report what altera- 
tions or amendments were necessary to the laws for the sale of public 
lands; also of one to inquire into the expediency of altering the Act of 
March 3, 1803, relating to the lands allowed for the support of schools in 
the Virginia Military District in Ohio. 1 - 

On November 25, 1806, in writing to President Jefferson, Gallatin said: 
■' Whatever relates to land cannot he too closely watched. Worthington is 
the only one in the Senate, since Breckenridge left, who understands the 
subject. He has been perfectly faithful in that respect, trying to relieve as 
much as possible the purchasers generallv from being hard pressed for pay- 
ment," 13 

The great question of Canal Navigation was now to the front and the elab- 
orate schemes of a system along the eastern coast to avoid the dangers of 
the coasting trade was under discussion. The Chesapeake and Delaware 
Ganal was planned and aid asked from Congress. About the same time the 
bill for a canal around the Falls of the Ohio at Louisville was introduced. 

Mr. Worthington, on Febi uary 25, submitted a resolution calling upon the 
Secretary of the Treasury for a report on the cost, plans, etc., of the Chesa- 
peake and Delaware Canal and on the 20th one for a report to the Senate at 
their next session as to the practicability and probable expense of a turn- 
pike-road throughout the Atlantic States, from Washington northeast and

appointment of three commissioners to investigate; the route of the cana! at 
the Falls of the Ohio passed the Renate. 

On the next day,. February 28, Mr. Worthington withdrew his resolution^ 
of the 25th and 26th and offered the following, which was adopted hy a vote 
22 to 3 on March 3, the last day of his term : 

Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treasury be directed to prepare ami 
report to the Senate at their next session a plan for the application of fucIi 
means as are within the power of Congress, to the purpose of opening roads 
and making canals; together with a statement of the undertakings of that 
nature which, as objects of public improvement, may require and demand 
the aid of Government; also a statement of the works of the nature men- 
tioned which have been commenced, the progress which has been made in 
them, and the means and prospect of their being completed, and all such 
information, as in the opinion of the Secretary, shall be material, in relation 
to the objects of this resolution. 14 

He was succeeded in the Senate by his brother-in-law, Gov. 

Mr. Worthington was a man devoted to his family and devoted 
to his State. His correspondence with his wife shows clearlv 
how much the enforced absence caused by public service grieved 
him and at the same time shows how thoroughly he considered 
that public service a matter of duty. "Although deeply sen- 
sible of the privations entailed upon himself and those most 
dear to his heart by these unceasing sacrifices for the public 
good, and often resolved to withdraw himself within the domes- 
tic circle, he was unable, to the last, to overcome his instinctive 
aspirations for the State he loved so well, and was seldom long 
absent from her service." 15 His service cost him much in a 
money point of view and it was only by the careful and efficient 
management of Mrs. Worthington that his neglected business 
was kept in hand. 

The burdens of the management of the large property, and 
the exercise of a most generous hospitality, to foreign gentle- 
men on their travels, Congressmen from the South and West, 
army officers passing through Ohio, State polititians, Indian 
chieftains, and personal friends, together with constant demands 
on his and her benevolence, made her position, in her husband's 
absence, a very arduous one. Her success as hostess and man- 
ager prove her ability, and to her is due no small part of the 
results of her husband's career. 

The four years from 1807 to 1811 were spent in the building 
of and settling in his mansion of Adena and in the care of his 

On December 3, 1810, Return J. Meigs, Jr., resigned as Sen- 
ator to become Governor and on the 10th Mr. Worthington was

Samuel Huntington, to fill out the term expiring March 4, 181 T).

Bv daniel W. Fowler. 

I Communicated by Charles Arthur Ridgwav, 

Life member of The " Old Northwest" Genealogical Society. 

For the purpose of bringing more clearly to view the reasons and causes 
which induced the emigrant ancestor, William Fowler, to come to America, 
together with the part lie doubtless took, in connection with others of his 
contemporaries, in founding, and subsequently in forming the policy of the 
New Haven Colony, I introduce the following from Dwight's History of 
I Connecticut, Chaps. 8 and 0, as being the most concise and at the same time 

thorough statement of any with which 1 am familiar: 

"Mr. Davenport, Samuel Eaton, Theophilus Eaton, Esq., Edward Hop- 
kins, Esq., Mr. Thomas Gregson, and a considerable number of persons 
besides, who had left England to escape persecution, and to take up their 
abode in America, arrived in Boston from London, England, in the month 
of June, 10.57. (Two large ships arrived at this time, one named the Planter, 
but we are not informed if the company came on one or both.) 

Mr. Davenport had been distinguished in England as a minister of great 
learning and piety. Messrs. Eaton and Hopkins had been successful mer- 
chants in London, and the former had resided at the Court of Denmark as 
agent of the King of England. 

Great exertions were made in Massachusetts to induce this wealthy com- 
pany to remain in that colony. The people proposed to relinquish to them 
their whole town, and the General Court to give them any place which they 
might select ; but they ^preferred to penetrate farther into the interior of 
the country. * * * * That highly respectable company appeared 
to have had several reasons for not remaining in Massachusetts. Mr. 
Davenport held the opinion that no reformation in the Church had ever 
been carried farther than where it was left by those who introduced it; 
and he probably thought that the system adopted in the new colonies was 
defective in some points not likely to be improved. He was a decided 
opponent of Antinomian doctrines, which at that time had progressed in 
Boston. Besides, he and his associates were apprehensive that the King 
would soon send out a Governor-General of New England, to whose author- 
ity they did not wish to be subject. 

Fully resolved on making a new settlement at a distance from the 
others, in the autumn of 16;>7, Mr. Davenport, with several of his friends, 
visited the shores of Long Island Sound, with the commercial and other 
advantages of which they were much pleased. They selected the place 
called Quinnipiac by the Indians, and by the Dutch, Rocabert ; and having; 
built a hut there, a few of their number spent the winter in it. This was 
the first habitation known to have been elected there, and, indeed, on any 
part of the Connecticut coast west of Saybrook Fort. The settlement of 
New Haven, however, did not really begin until the following year. On 
the 30tb of March, 1638, Messrs. Davenport, Pruden, Theophilus Eaton, 
and Samuel Eaton, sailed from Boston with their companions. They 
reached Qiiinnipiac in about two weeks. On the 15th of April they 
spent their first Sabbath there and in a truly Christian manner, viz.: in 
the worship of God, and in the strict observance of His holy day. The 
people assembled in the shade of a large oak tree, at the place where 
George Street now crosses College Street; and ?>ir. Davenport preached 
an appropriate sermon from the Gth Chapter of Matthew, 1st verse: 
Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them, 
otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 


134 Descendants of Copt. William Fowler. [Oct. 

Shortly afterward, a day of fasting and prayer was observed; and nj 
the close of it they formed what they called the " Plantation Covenant," 
in which they solemnly bound themselves "that, as in matters that con- 
cern the gathering and" ordering of a Church, so also, in all public offices 
that concern civil order, as choice of magistrates and oflicers, makic-j 
and repealing laws, dividing allotments of inheritance and all things o"f 
like nature, they would, all of them, be ordered by the rules which the 
Scriptures held forth for them." This was intended to be their rule until 
they should form a more intimate mutual acquaintance, and then they 
designed to covenant together as Christians. 

The first Constitution of Connecticut was formed in Hartford, aftei 
mature deliberation at a meeting of the free planters of all the town-, 
who assembled on the 14th of January, l(5!-jy. The preamble states, in 
substance, that they formed one public State or Commonwealth for the 
establishment of order and government, and that they confederated, for 
themselves and their successors, to maintain the liberty and purity of the 
Gospel, and the discipline of the Churches, accordingto its institutions. 
* * * * It declared all to be freemen who had been received 
as members of towns, and taken the oath of fidelity to the Common- 
wealth. The Governor was required to be a member of a regular Church 
and to have been a magistrate; and he could not be elected more than 
once in two years. To be a candidate for a magistrate, a man was 
required to be a freeman, and to be nominated by the freemen or the 
General Court. * * * * "These pure and sincere men. the 
founders of Connecticut, denied the divine right of Kings, and had been 
led by their observations, experience, and reflexions in England, to the 
conclusion that man is too frail in judgment and virtue to be safely 
trusted with the uncontrolled government of others." 

1. Capt. William" Fowler, the son of William 1 Fowler, the 
" magistrate," did not participate with his father in the 
settlement of Milford, but remained at New Haven, where 
he took the oath of fidelity, 1044, and was admitted to the 
General Court, 1045. He was a land holder at New Haven, 
where he was living in 1055. East Haven, " Fowler's Cove," 
and " Fowler's Creek," now so called, were named from 
him. About two miles from New Haven, now the village 
of Whitneyville, and on the site of the establishment for 
the manufacture of fire-arms, erected by Eli Whitney, the 
the inventor of the cotton gin, Mr. Fowler built a mill, 1045, 
which the town bought of him, 3d of January, 1050, for one 
hundred pounds. He was chosen successively, "Sergeant," 
" Lieutenant," and " Captain," of the " Town Company," 
and is mentioned in the Colonial Records of Hartford and 
New Haven, as one to raise troops as a defence against a 
threatened incursion of the Dutch. 

He first m., as early as 1045, Mary, dau. of Edward and 
Ann Tapp, sister of Jane Tapp, wife of Governor Treat, by 
whom were born to him all his children. He m. 2d, Nov. 
1st, 1070, at Milford, widow Elizabeth (Alsop) Baldwin. 
She was living at the date of his death, and as we learn 
from his will, was a " tender, dutiful and loving wife," and 
he desired that she might continue to "live with his child- 
ren, to be a guide and help to them as a mother, and head 
of a family." He removed and settled at Milford, about

the time of his father's death, 1060, where a portion of his 
children were born and baptized. 

His will is dated 3d October, 1682, and probated June, 
16S3. He gives property to " his eldest son John, to en- 
courage him to tend the mill built by his father. Children 
(10 mentioned in will) born at New Haven, and Milford.

stroyed the Indian Fort ; vide following paragraph. He 
d. previous to 1695, as, in a deed executed at that date by 
Sarah Fowler, " widow and executor " of John F., her hus- 
band is named as executor of his father, William 2 Fowler's 
will. His will is probated 1693, and mentions his "only 
John," his wife to "take care to bring him up and educate 
him in the fear of God." He also mentions " my honora- 
ble uncle, Robert Treat, Esq., the Governor." From the 
records we find " Mrs. Sarah Newton, alias Fowler, d. 5th 
August, 1723." This was John's widow, m. subsequently

New Haven, where he resided in 1661. He, with his 
brother John, was one of the "young men" of Milford 
who, in 1671, destroyed the fort built by the Indians for 
their defence against the Mohawks. What their object 
was in destroying it, does not appear, but it was done 

136 Descendants of Capt. William Fowler. [Oct, 

"with the utmost secrecy, at. dead of night," as the record 
tells us. 

The Indians complained of the act, whereupon civil pro- 
cess was issued against them. They were tried before the 
General Court at New Haven, and fined ten pounds each. 

In 1081 or '82 he sold out at New Haven, and was of 
Norwich, 1683 to 1098, when he removed to Windham

mile purchase," land in what is now called Goshen Society. 
Five generations have lived on the spot, and it is now the 
property of Gen. Amos 7 Fowler. The old house, built 
by the first settler, was replaced in 1839, by a new one 
erected on the spot, and on its completion it was made 
the occasion of some interesting dedicatory ceremonies, 
and a discourse was delivered by a descendant, the Rev. 
and Hon. Orin Fowler, who was born on the spot, — a 
discourse filled with interesting historical and genealog- 
ical incident. His will is dated 5th April, 1713, and pro-

January, 1844 ; no children living. 

37. Albert 1 (Elijah* and Hannah, Gurdon? Jonathan? Jona- 
than? William'), b. 7th September, 1802. The father of the 
writer of this memoir came to Chautauqua Co., N. Y., with 
his mother in 1814, where he remained until 1832, when he 
determined to remove and settle in the then M Far West." 
He came by water to Detroit, and from thence by land to 
St. Joseph, where he took passage in a schooner for Chicago, 
reaching there in the month of June, of that year. A week 
or so after he arrived, Gen. Scott and his troops came in the 
steamboat Sheldon Thompson, from Buffalo, bringing the 
Asiatic Cholera with them, a scourge until that time unknown 
in this part of the world. The greatest panic prevailed among 
the citizens of the place, every one leaving that could get 
away, and he again took passage on the same schooner that 
had brought him to Chicago, for St. Joseph ; but not being 
allowed to land there, they proceeded to Mackinac, where 
they were again refused permission to land, and only after 
much solicitation could they obtain provisions (which were 
finally handed to them on the end of a long pole) to enable 
them to proceed on their voyage to Detroit. 

Mr. Fowler again came to Chicago in the spring of 1S33, 
and engaged in speculations in real estate, from which he 
realized a small sum of money, with which he proceeded 
to Buffalo, and purchasing a stock of Indian goods, he re- 
turned in September, in season to attend the great Indian 
payment of that year. That being over, he concluded to 
try his fortunes elsewhere, and emigrated to Milwaukee, 
reaching that place on the 18th November, 1833, finding 
there Solomon Juneau, its founder, and the only white man 
residing there at the time of his arrival. He went into Mr. 
Juneau's employ, and was engaged in trading with the 
Indians for some time afterwards. He acquired their 
language, and was known among them as Mis-kee-o-quo-nen,

Peace, and first Register ot Deeds in Milwaukee ; was a 
member of the Convention which formed the present Con- 
stitution of the State of Wisconsin. He resided in Mil- 
waukee County until 1853, when he removed to Rockford, 
111., where he was elected Mayor, in 1864-65, and again in 
1867, and where he still continues to live, much respected 
and beloved by his fellow citizens.

home (having been discharged from the army for disability), 
after lingering and painful illness. His brother died two 
days after, in hospital, at Gallatin, Tenn. Their demise over- 
whelmed their aged parents with sorrow, and taught all who 
witnessed it, how vastly great are the sacrifices of war.

148 Descendants of Capt. William Fowler. [Oct. 

41. Col. Rogers 7 Fowler {Russell? Gitrdon? Jonathan, 4 Jona- 
than? William*), b. 10th May, 1812, on the same day, and in 
the same house from which his uncle, Rogers, 6 was buried. 
The co-incidence gave him his name. He engaged in busi- 
ness on his own account at an early age, and being possessed 
of rare business qualifications, and immense energy, soon 
achieved success. He was engaged in merchandising and 
lumbering in Bradford Co., for many years, but meeting 
with reverses, he concluded to go West. In 1854-55 he 
organized the New York Lumber Company, and, purchas- 
ing a large amount of pine lands in the vicinity of the 
Menomonee River, of Green Bay, he built near the mouth 
of it, where stands the present flourishing village of Mene- 
kaunee, a mill weich had a capacity for cutting 150,000 feet 
of lumber every twenty-four hours. 

He soon after opened one of the then largest lumber 
yards in Chicago. The financial revulsion of 1857 coming 
on soon afterwards, affected the enterprise disastrously, and 
he sold out his interest in 1858. Having taken up his resi- 
dence in Chicago in 1854-56, he became one of its most 
enterprising citizens, and at the breaking out of the war of 
the rebellion, was appointed by Gov. Yates, Commissary 
General of the State of Illinois, and was instrumental in 
bringing troops to the defence of Cairo in season to antici- 
pate, and thereby prevent, its intended capture by the rebel 
forces. He was afterwards commissioned a Colonel by Sec- 
retary Cameron, of the War Department, at Washington, 
and sent West to look after certain interests of the Gov- 
ernment in that direction. 

In 1865 he went to Texas, and, with others, purchased the 
franchises of the Memphis and El Paso R. R., and has since 
labored to effect its completion, with fair prospects of suc- 
cess. The enterprise is one of the grandest in conception 
of any in the United States ; is one of the connecting links 
of the Great Southern Pacific R. R., which is already com- 
menced and will eventually be completed. 

Mr. Fowler is six feet three inches in height, of noble 
bearing, and fine personal address ; of most genial and pleas- 
ant manners ; has hosts of warm personal friends ; and still 
possesses, at the age of 58, the fire and energy of his most 
vigorous manhood. Unfortunately, his health has become 
somewhat impaired, from great exposures, which restrict 
his opportunities. Mr. Fowler m. 19th September, 1838, 
H. Almeda, dau. of Judge Morgan, of Pa., and had, — 

i. Clarence M , 8 b. 6th January, 1840; d. 1st January, 1841. 

ii. EluM., 8 b. 13th August, 1843; m. George W. Adams, 10th 

January, 1867. 
iii. Harriet M., fl b. 10th June, 1S46; m. Win. II. Cutler, 1st May, 

iv. Mary Amanda, 8 b. 8th April, 1851. 
v. Jessie Lind, 8 b. 9th March, 1857. 



Avery. — We are sorry to note that Hon. Elroy M. Avery, who has been 
engaged for several years upon a revision of Sweet's " Groton Averys," seems 
to be very much discouraged by the small number of subscriptions for the 
work. He had determined that unless two hundred additional subscriptions 
were received in June and July, he would, on the first of August abandon 
the effort and return the money already advanced. It would be a great pity 
indeed to allow so valuable a work to go by default, and it will, probably, be 
many years before any one so capable of doing the work will undertake to 
carry it on to completion and publish it. We also regret to note that the 
publication of Avery Notes and Queries ended with the issue for May, 1902. 

Collamer, Collamore — For a number of years past, some members of 
this family have been gathering genealogical data relating to the Collamores 
and Collamers, at home and abroad. The compilers have worked independ- 
ently, and have accumulated data which has never been merged into a whole 
nor published. Interest in the matter has of late become more widespread, 
and has finally crystallized into the suggestion that that the family organize 
an association, like many others of the same character. xVll the above 
material can be made clear, and other interesting facts disseminated and dis- 
cussed by such an association as is x>roposed, and through the literature it 
will issue. All who are eligible by descent from or marriage with this family 
are invited to enroll their names at once in the projected Collamore Union. 
For prospectus and particulars, address the secretary, Newton L. Collamer, 
1006 F Street, Washington, D. C. 

Sands.— We regret to note the death of Miss C. Louise Sands, of Meriden, 
Conn., who died June 15, 1902, at the house of her brother in that city. She 
took great interest in genealogy, and devoted much of her time to genealog- 
ical investigations. She contributed, within the past two years, to our 
Queries and Replies.

A Genealogical History of the Dv.nle.ry Family Don Levi, Donlevy, Dunleavy, 
Dunlavey, Dunlevey, Etc. By Gwendolyn Dunlevy Kelley Columbus, Ohio 
1901 Issued for Private Distribution 8vo, cloth, pp. 335-f-pages for Ad- 
ditional Records and Index, none of which are paged. Illustrated. 
This book is divided into three parts, and commences with extracts from 
old historical works giving the origin of the name and family, from the year 
900, when a Dunlevy appears as King of Ulidia in the north of Ireland. A 
good map of the north of Ireland shows the family to have been represented 
in no less than four different localities, and their respective heads occupying 
more or less prominent positions. In the second part, the history of different 
branches of the family is taken up, with a chart pedigree of each, so far as 
the writer of the work was able to learn of them. The last part of the book 
gives the line of descent trom Anthony (or Antoine) Dunlevy (I) of Ireland, 
and his son Anthony (II) Dunlevy, who emigrated to America about 1735. 
The book contains a. goodly amount of material, which could have been elab- 
orated and arranged so as to have made a most useful history of this impor- 
tant family, and it is to be hoped that sometime in the future some interested 
member will take the matter in hand and produce a more comprehensive 
book. Miss Kelley is entitled to great credit, so far as her work goes, and 
what she has incorporated in this book will be to many of great interest. 

Dumont Family Notes, Comprising Genealogical Data Derived from Various 
Sources. Compiled by Eugene F. McPike, Chicago, 111. 4to, paper, pp. 5. 
Price, (50 cts. 

These notes are of interest to the Dumonts of America, as they undoubt- 
edly contain more information concerning the origin of the family and the 
evolution of the name than many of them would otherwise obtain. They 
are the product of much careful research, and are put together in inexpen- 
sive and legible form, and the compiler merits the thanks and patronage of 
those of the name and family. This would afford valuable material for a 
more extended history of the Dumont family. 

Record of the Descendants of Vincent 3Feigs, who came from Dorsetshire, England, 

to America about 1G35. :;: " * * * By Henry P. Meigs. Copyrighted 1901. 

Published by John S. Bridges & Co., Baltimore, Md. 4to, cloth, pp. 374. 

Price, cloth , $0. 00; leather, $8.00, postage, 35 cts. 

The only one bearing the name Meigs of the first generation was Vincent 
Meigs, who, with his sons Vincent, John and Mark were first recorded in 
this country as at Weymouth, Mass., in 1039. From there they went, in 
1642, to Rehoboth, Mass., and about 1044, to New Haven, Conn. The first 
son, Vincent, left no heirs. John, the second son, settled in Guilford, Conn., 
and from him have descended all bearing the name of Meigs in America. 
Ten generations are represented. The family is not very numerous, but a 
goodly number have filled honorable positions. In the Old Northwest, the 
nameof Return Jonathan Meigs is well known; he having filled important 
offices in the early history of the Territory and the State of Ohio, having

sented in Philadelphia, Penn., by a very noted physician, Charles D. Meigs, 
whose son Montgomery C. was Quartermaster-General U. S. Army during 
the Civil war; another son continued to represent the medical profession in 
Philadelphia, and at (he present time the place is filled by a grandson. Arms 
were borne by several families of the name of Meigs, or Meggs, in England,

and some of the descendants of Vincent 1 have turned their attention to the 
subject. Cuts of the Arms of English families are in the book, and are fullv 
described in the appendix. Biographical sketches, instead of appearing with 
the family record, are all placed in the appendix— a plan which seems i,, 
have the advantage of affording more space than could well be spared in 1 1.,- 
body of the work. The book is profusely illustrated, most of the illustra- 
tions being of high class. The index is complete in all parts, and, taken all 
in all, it is a most admirable work, and one which is a credit to the family, 
as well as to the compiler. The printing and binding are elegant and tfie 
paper is good, thus makiug the book durable and substantial. As the Meiga 
family has many prominent members, and is quite widely dispersed over our 
country, this book should hnd a place in many public libraries.

This chart makes a very graphic display of the descent of the Meige family 
in America, and is thus a most valuable accompaniment to the genealogy. 
It contains historical references to various names, with valuable notes giving 
references to works consulted. 

A Genealogy of the Viets Family with Biographical Sketches Dr. John Viets of 
Simbsury, Connecticut 1710 and His Descendants Written and Compiled By 
Francis Hubbard Viets Hartford Press: The Case, Lockwood & Brainard 
Company 1002 8vo, cloth, pp. 228. Price, $3.00. 

This book commences with a short article on the origin and spelling of the 
name Viets, which is of considerable interest and shows extensive research. 
The progenitor of the American family was Dr. John Viets, or Viett, a young 
physician, probably from Germany, who arrived a few years before 1700 and 
settled in New York, where he married Catharine Myers, and in 1710 re- 
moved with his family to Simsbury, Conn. The progeny of Dr. John and 
Catharine Viets traced in this book are all descended from three of their 
four children, as nothing could be learned of the fifth, Mary or Mercy, who 
married a Golf. A number of families of the name are given in the appendix 
who were probably descended from the same ancestors, but the compiler 
was unable to fully prove their descent. There are also others of the name 
who came recently from Germany, or whose parents or grandparents came 
thence. There are biographical sketches of prominent members of the fam- 
ily, of greater or less extent, which add greatly to the interest of the work. 
The book is arranged upon a modification of the Pegister plan, is very nicely 
printed upon a good quality of paper, and is tastefully bound. It is illus- 
trated with a goodly number of portraits, views of residences, etc., all of a 
high grade of half-tones, and it has a complete index of Viets and one of other 
names. We notice that many whose names appear are now domiciled in 
the Old Northwest ; so there should be many persons within the region who 
ought to possess the book, and it should also find a place in many prominent 
public libraries of the section.

Albemarle County in Virginia Giring some account of what it ivas by nature, of 
what it ivas made by man, and of some of the men wlio made it. By Rev. Edgar 
Woods * * * [Copyright 1901. The Michie Company, Printers, 
Charlottesville, Va., 1001. 8ov, cloth, pp. iv+412. Price, $2.00, postpaid. 
Albemarle county was formed from other counties in Virginia about 
1745, having been taken from Gouchland county, and various additions and 
changes were made in its boundary from time to time down to the year 
1889. The first patents to land within the present borders of the county 
were taken out in 1727, the grants continuing to be issued in small num- 
bers during the succeeding ten years. After that time the settlement of the 
county was more rapid, and among the early settlers we find families that 
became noted in the history of our country, such as the Clarks, of whom 
was Gen. George Rogers Clark, and the Jefferson family of whom was 
Thomas, well known to fame on many accounts. Most of the early records 
of the the county were preserved, and are made use of in this book, but an 
unfortunate gap occurs from 174S to 1783, a period of thirty-five years, 
which was caused by the ravages of the British troops near the close of the 
Revolutionary war. Other interruptions also occurred, since that time, as 
those from 1785 to 1701, and those for the years 1805 and 1827. Some facts 
regarding the Revolutionary history of the county were derived from other 
sources, for the book gives a list of officers and enlisted men who served in 
that war — a very valuable record, for the descendants of some of those men 
are now to be found in the Old Northwest, and many other parts of the 
country at the present time. Lists of county officers are given from 1745 
down to the present time, also of emigrants from that county to other 
states, and we find that Ohio, Indiana and Illinois received a goodly num- 
ber. There is a complete history of the different religious denominations 
in the county ; also the celebrated university at Charlottesville is well set 
forth, and many historical events. The most important part of the book 
to the genealogist is found in pages 137-301 inclusive, which contain histo- 
ries of families. Although this is a small book for a county history, and it 
contains no pictures of any kind, like the generality of county histories 
which have been constructed of late, yet we consider it one of the most val- 
uable books of the kind we have seen. Many persons in the Old Northwest 
would be greatly interested in it, if they knew of its existence, and would 
desire to procure it, and the book should find a place in many public libra- 
ries throughout the above named section of our country. 

The Highlanders of Scotland By the late William F. Skene, LL. D. F. S. A.

This book is a new edition of a work which was published sixty-six years 
ago, and has been long out of print. The original title-page, a reproduction of 
which follows the one given above, reads as follows : " The Highlanders of 
Scotland, their Origin, History and Antiquities; with a sketch of their 
Manners and Customs, and an Account of the Clans into which they were 
Divided, and the State of Society which Existed among them. By William 
F. Skene, F. S. A. Scot. In two volumes. London: John Murray, Albe- 
marle Street. MDCCCXXXYI." The editor of this edition, Dr. Macbain, 
adds a Preface and a Life of Dr. Skene. The contents of the first edition 
have been reprinted without change, and the editor has added an Excur- 
sus and Notes at the end of the book amounting to forty-two pages. This 
book is, without doubt, the highest and most reliable authority on the ori- 
gin of the Highlanders of Scotland and of clans into which they were divid- 
ed, and it will enlighten the student who wishes to become acquainted with 
the subject probably more than any other book, of its size, which has been 
published. There arc now in America many representatives of the High- 
land clans who would be greatly interested in reading of their ancestors, 
and this book will give them more information upon this subject than any 
other of the same size. The publisher lias brought outthe book in line style,

This little book, as its title indicates, will be of great use to the American 
genealogist who desires to trace his pedigree back in England. It indicates 
the source oj information, and also tells that such information can be sun- 
plied by Mr. Mathews. It is very well to know the addresses of reliable 
persons who will make the requisite searches, and procure such informa- 
tion as may be of use, and do it at a reasonable price.

The preceding books of this series have received notice in previous issues 
of The Quarterly, so it will not be necessary to review the present book. 
the fifth of the series, at great length. The value of the whole series has 
been established, and the books are very frequently consulted now by 
genealogists to establish the date of marriages which took place in Connec- 
ticut before 1800, which they had been previously unable to obtain. It 
is greatly to be regretted that so many of the records have been lost, by 
burning and otherwise, some of them many years ago; but tbese books 
show what ones have been lost, which will show to the genealogist the use- 
lessness, in most cases, of making further search. Libraries and indiviuals 
having the former books of this series should by all means procure this one. 

The Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, Massac) \uset is, With some Related

dence, K.I. 1902. 8vo, paper, pp. 415-492; 493-572. Price, $1.00 per 

The first volume of this valuable book was reviewed at some length in 
The Quarterly of January, 1900, and the numbers were briefly noticed 
from time to time previously, as received. We arc now glad to notice the 
resumption of this publication, and the reception of the first two numbers 
of Volume II of Mr. Hoyt's "Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, 
Massachusetts." These portions of Volume II are mostly devoted to the 
18th century records of Salisbury and Amesbury churches which are now 
in private hands, inaccessible to the public, and liable to be lost. They 
also contain records of baptisms, marriages and deaths. The first volume 
contained records of families for three or four generations, down to the year 
1700, and this volume will cover the period from 1700 to 1800, and includes 
that portion of the century which is usually found most difficult in tracing 
one's ancestry. All libraries, public or private, making a specialty of <jen<'- 
alogy that have not already secured Vol. 1 o.f this valuable work should 
immediately do so, and at the same time should enter their subscription for 
Volume II.

This is a new worker in the field of genealogical journalism, and makes its

(of various books), What is Believed, Family History from the Public 
Records, Family History from Private MSS., A family of Soldiers, A Gene- 
alogist's Kalendar, Editorial Notes. These are mostly treated in an elabo- 
rate and exhaustive manner by persons well qualified to write upon the 
subjects, and everything set forth is substantiated by reference to the best 
authority; so it may be received and accepted with conlidence. j\iueh 
light is thrown upon the early history of families now represented in Amer- 
ica, and this work gives the promise, in its future issues, of much more 
valuable information to Americans in this line, which will render it a sine 
qua non to genealogists in this country. Probably time will develop the 
necessity of a department of Notes and Queries, which will add greatly to 
the value of the review, and other features will also, no doubt, evolve as 
occasion for them may present. Each issue is a book in itself, bound in 
such a manner that it can be handled with much more comfort and satis- 
faction than the ordinary pamphlet. The printing, paper, and general 
make-up are all first-class, leaving nothing, in those matters, to be desired. 
It must inevitably find a place in every public library in this country that 
pays any attention to family history and genealogy. Orders in America can

A National liegister of the Society of the Son?, of the American Revolution Com- 
piled and Published under the i\nspices of the National Publication 
Committee By Louis PI. Cornish Register List Collated and Edited by 
A. Howard Clark Registrar-General National Society, Washington, I). C. 
L8vo. buckram, pp. 3035. Price, $0.00. 

This book contains an outline of the history of the National Society, and 
short historical sketches of the various State organizations, together with 
the Constitution of the National Society, and lists of National Otlicers from 
the beginning. It also gives full directions for joining, and where to look 
for evidence of Revolutionary service. The much larger portion of the book, 
however, is filled up with the names, lineages and military service of the 
ancestors of the more than fourteen thousand members "of the Society, 
which makes a vast amount of valuable genealogical material. The State 
and other branches of the Society are arranged alphabetically, and the 
names of members are also similarly arranged in their respective divisions, 
so it is quite easy to find any member of a state society ; but the vast 
amount of genealogical matter is accessible only by most patient and persis- 
tent search, for there is no index at all in the book. The Daughters of the 
American Revolution had previously published most excellent examples of 
how such a book ought to be constructed, and we are very sorry to see that 
our brothers of the sterner (?) sex have not followed their example in the 
construction of this book. There should have been two indexes, one of 
members and one of Revolutionary ancestors and other names— the former 
being designated by italics. A subject-index would also add materially to 
the value of the book as a work of reference. We hope if the book should 
be revised in a few years, and another edition should be printed, that the 
above named omissions will be supplied. The book contains many histor- 
ical illustrations and portraits of otlicers, both National and State, and some 
portraits of members, all of which add greatly to the beauty of the book. 
The mechanical execution of the book is faultless, the paper, though not of 
the best quality, is probably fully as good as the subscription price (previ- 
ous to publication) warranted the publisher in using; but we think a 
majority of the subscribers would have been better satisfied with a liner 
grade of material at a higher price. This book has, through the generosity 
of members, been placed in all the public libraries of several states, and 
many more libraries in less fortunate states should by some means possess 
themselves of the work, for it is a vast storehouse of information winch is 
sought constantly by a great number of people.
