INTRODUCTORY NOTES 



The present volume was prepared under the direction of the Association 
of Descendants of Andrew Ward by its Secretarj'. 

The record is incomplete, and the compiler has no apology to offer for the 
fact, since completeness in a work of this nature, under present conditions, is 
unattainable. There will be found mistakes scattered through the volume, 
due in part to clerical errors — unavoidable in a book which is mainly statistical 
in character; in part to errors of earlier genealogists whose works have been 
consulted ; in part to misleading statements of correspondents and, finally, in 
some measure, to lack of attention to detail upon the part of the compiler 
himself. The fact that the names of some fifteen thousand or more descend- 
ants have been gathered and classified speaks for itself. 

In a certain sense this work is a joint affair, a large part of the material 
having been contributed by scores of people, who have been interested in the 
project since its inception. While it is no exaggeration to state that hundreds 
of descendants have helped to make as nearly complete as possible the data 
here presented, space will not permit the mention of their names in detail. It 
is proper, however, that the author should here give expression to his appre- 
ciation of the aid afforded by the following descendants who have contributed 
most largely to the subject matter of the record: Mrs. Teunis S. Hamlin, 
Miss Clara Mossman Hill, Miss Cora E. Ward, Mrs. John H. Hall, Miss 
Augusta Wheeler, Miss Loretta B. Perry, Winthrop Hoyt Perry, Mrs. 
Alfred C. Howland, Frank Grant, Mrs. Frederick P. Allen, J. Seymour Cur- 
rey, C. W. DeLyon Nichols, Gen. Chas. H. Whipple, Prof. Everett Ward 
Olmsted, Alexander Meigs Ward, William Ward, Mrs. Edward H. Jenkins, 
Thomas D. Barlow, Capt. Franklin Hanford, Miss Caroline J. Calef, Mrs. 
Eugene H. Wells, Mrs. Sarah E. Tingue, Miss Mary K. Wheeler, Mrs. Ida 
Rust McPherson, Christopher L. Ward, Miss Mary E. Ward, Clarence A. 
Torrey, Orpheus N. Parmelee, Miss Emma I. Hudson, Mrs. Kate Coe, Mrs. 
Harriet E. G. Whitmore. 

The hearty co-operation and sound judgment of the Advisory Committee 
have been invaluable adjuncts in determining the general character of the 
volume. 

The reference system adopted in the genealogy is the simplest that has 
been found practicable, viz., the designation of each name by a single number, 
strictly adhered to throughout. The inquirer has only to turn to the index, 
find the number of the page upon which the desired name occurs and then 



6 Ward Family Genealogy 

trace it out in the body of the work. Where the name represents the head 
of a family, the facts regarding the family will be found upon a subsequent 
page under the same number in brackets. 

That portion of the book which is found under the heading, "Biographi- 
cal," contains, in narrative form, the history of several of the prominent 
families in the Ward connection, and will be read with great interest, as will 
also the chapter upon "The Association of Descendants of Andrew Ward."

HISTORICAL 

The family of Ward, or Warde, is of English origin. Among the num- 
erous bearers of the name, both in England and Ireland, the name is spelled 
either with or without the final e. Andrew Warde, the New England settler, 
spelled it in the latter fashion. A fac-simile of his signature is here repro- 
duced, fl p 

The famil\- belonged to the nobility, including barons, lords, knights, etc. 
Horatio Ward, Esq., of the Andrew Warde line, in his valuable manuscript 
volume, has a score or more of these allied families living in the British Isles, 
including their respective coats of arms. Mr. Ward, who was a gentleman of 
wealth and culture, spent twenty or more years of his life in London, much 
of it being given to an assiduous search for the ancestors of Andrew Warde 
among the many families of that name in the United Kingdom. His researches 
led him to the conclusion that the American colonist of that name belonged 
to the Ward family living in Homersfield and Gorleston, Suffolk County, 
England. From a careful examination of his and other manuscripts, the com- 
piler of this volume is led to believe that Andrew Warde, of Fairfield, Conn., 
was a grandson of Richard Ward, of Homersfield. 

The current opinion, viz., that Andrew was the son of Richard, seems 
to have been founded upon insufficient evidence. This opinion, no doubt 
traditional in the beginning, after a time assumed the form of established fact, 
and thus came to be accepted as genuine. Hence, it will be found that in most 
instances where reference is made to Andrew Warde by historians and genealo- 
gists of the Nineteenth Century the above relationship is assumed to be cor- 
rect. Later investigations, however, have changed the complexion of things 
and seem to lead to the conclusion that the earlier writers were mistaken. 
The single fact, to say nothing of confirmatory proof, that Richard Ward 
died in the year 1598 in extreme old age, while undoubtedly Andrew was 
born in or about 1597, goes far to disprove the idea that has so long prevailed. 
In this connection the conclusions reached by Mr. Emory McClintock, of New 
York, who has made a long and careful study of this question, are worthy of 
reproduction and will be read with interest. He says: 

"Richard of Homersfield's will seems to indicate that his son Andrew 
had the bulk of his inheritance, obviously to start him with an estate, or in 
some business, so that he was certainly over twenty-one years of age in 1597, 
and perhaps considerably more. My estimate that he was born about 1570, 
based on his brother Henry's birth in 1559, and that of his brother Ralph's 
wife in 1572, is not far wrong. I consider that Richard's Andrew was prob- 
ably married and settled a dozen or more years before our Andrew's wife 



8 Ward Family Genealogy 

was born in 1606. With these dates before us, it is fair to ask whether it is 
conceivable that Richard's Andrew, reputed to be Andrew, of Fairfield, over 
sixty years of age in 1635, could have been named last in the list of seven to 
govern Connecticut. Is it conceivable that a man of that age would have been 
one of the Wethersfield explorers of 1634, as Stiles thinks our Andrew was? 
. . . Is it conceivable that his large family should all be born when he 
was aged? . . . That an old man should lead at Wethersfield, and then 
rush off to settle Stamford, seems incredible. These difficulties diminish 
greatly if we regard our Andrew as grandson of Richard, of Homersfield." 

In support of the latter conclusion, we have the testimony of a noted 
genealogist of half a century ago, H. G. Somerby, of Boston, based upon 
Blomfield's History of Norfolk County, England, to the effect that Andrew, 
of Fairfield, was the grandson and not the son of Richard. 

Further testimony: In a manuscript account of a journey through Suf- 
folk in 1657, by a Mr. Leverland, it is stated that "the descendants of Andrew 
Ward, son of Richard, of Homersfield, were in New England." (From a 
private letter from Roswell B. Ward, of New London, Conn., son of Col. 
James Ward, of Hartford, Conn.) 

Extracts from the East Anglian (Suffolk and adjoining counties) New 
Series, vol. vii, p. 148: "He (Leverland) was a schoolmaster there and a 
diligent searcher into the antiquities of this county." This is contained in a 
copy of an old publication entitled "Arms of Suffolk Gentry," published about 
1800 by W. Sharp, a learned genealogist of the period. The above quotation 
gives the arms of the Leverland family, with some additional remarks, as 
above, concerning the head of the family. 

"In this volume there is a letter from a Suffolk lady, who, in a visit 
to London in 1759, gives the name of Mrs. Leverland as of one well known, 
whom she met at a friend's house. Mr. and Mrs. Leverland may have been 
living in London at this time." (Vol. x, p. 272.) 

In support of the above presumption, the following well known genealo- 
gists make Andrew Warde, of Fairfield, Conn., the grandson of Richard 
Ward, of Homersfield: H. G. Somerby, Boston, Mass., 1856; Edward C. 
Marshall, New York City, 1882; Dr. Charles Samuel Ward, New York City, 
1870; Christopher L. Ward, Towanda, Pa., 1875. 

Unfortunately, a most careful search, instituted by learned genealogists 
of the present day, has failed to reveal any positive facts regarding Andrew 
Ward, the supposed father of Andrew Warde, of Fairfield, Conn. This 
much, however, is known, viz., that a Mr. Andrew Warde, gent., was buried 
January 23, 1615, at St. Michael's, Cornhill, London. (Harleian Collection, 
Parish Register Series, vol vii, p. 219.) 

It appears, also, that a certain Ralph Ward (which is the name of a 
brother of Andrew, son of Richard) was buried nt the same place. The two 



Historical 9 

names coming together, and the accompanying date, are suggestive features 
of this discovery. (From private letter of Wharton Dickinson, genealogist, 
New York City.) 

Investigation is now being made along the above line, and it is hoped 
that information may soon be secured which will set the matter at rest. Until 
such time, we are left to conjecture, supported by plausible theory, in regard 
to the pedigree of our honored ancestor. 

Extract from address of Emory McClintock, of New York City, at 
First Reunion of Andrew Ward Association, May 10, 1905: 

"Andrew Warde's ancestry was undoubtedly a good ancestry, because 
he took his place immediately in the affairs of the colony, although probably 
a man not over 35 years old at the time of the immigration from Watertown, 
which settled the town of Wethersfield, afterward decided to be the oldest 
town on the river and in the State." [In the section entitled "Bounds of 
Towns and Particular Lands" is the following: "It is ordered . . . 
That every Towne shall set out their bounds . . . and that once in a year 
three or more persons in the Towne appointed by the Selectmen, shall appoint 
with the adjacent Townes, and renew their marks .... The most 
ancient Towne (which for the River is determined by the courte to be 
Wethersfield) to give notice of the time and place of meeting for this perambu- 
lation." — From Col. Rec. I, p. 513. "From the point of view of a habitation 
by white men, Hartford was first occupied by the Dutch ; from the point of 
view of occupation by Englishmen, Windsor can claim to be earliest settled ; 
but from the point of view of settlement by Massachusetts Bay people, by 
agriculturists and colonists, Wethersfield has undisturbed right to the title." 
— From "The River Towns of Connecticut," by Chas. M. Andrews, Johns 
Hopkins University Studies, p. 17.] "Ward was the only man who was a 
member both of the committee to govern the colony, and of the committee of 
church members who were appointed to establish the Christian religion in the 
new colony. 

"There were six members of the original church who were deputed to 
establish the Christian church in the new colony on the river. Andrew Warde 
headed the list. There were a number, some six or eight, of gentlemen ap- 
pointed by the General Court of Massachusetts to establish the Colony of 
Connecticut and govern it until a government should be inaugurated. He was 
not the first of this list, and the fact that he was not the first, but the last, 
makes me think he was not an old man, but a man in the prime of life. This 
is particularly indicated by the fact which Dr. Stiles in his recently published 
book on Wethersfield indicates, viz., that Andrew Warde was probably one 
of the first eight men, who came a year before the colony was organized, to 
the site of Wethersfield, and planted some corn, and decided that there should 
be a colony there. That is, while the colony was established in 1635, these 
men, possibly eight or nine, or more, came in 1634, in the summer, and did 



10 Ward Family Genealogy 

preliminarj- work, and went back for the rest, who came over the follow- 
ing spring. 

"In every wa)*, therefore, both as a pioneer — one of the very first to 
come — and as the one man of all others who was on both commissions of 
Church and State, Andrew Warde was the founder of Connecticut. He did 
not appear as prominently as Ludlow, who was named as Governor, but he 
did more for the colony than Ludlow, who soon got into trouble and left the 
colony. He was not onl\ the founder of Wethersfield, but he was, I feel 
sure, the man who named Wethersfleld, because he was the only man in the 
Council who came from there and that could have named the town. He also 
founded Stamford, and he died in Fairfield, one of the most eminent, capable 
men in the colony. Lentil the year of his death he was deputy of Fairfield, 
and his family has always held the highest rank since in the State of Con- 
necticut and other States. 

"He must, therefore, have had good ancestry, but the trouble has been 
to find the ancestry. For a long time there was a widely believed statement 
afloat that Andrew Warde was the son of Richard Ward, but that was un- 
doubtedly a mistake. On the other hand, it has been as good as known to a 
very few for a number of years that he was a grandson of Richard Ward. 

"I think we may, therefore, take it as practically certain that our Andrew 
Warde was son of another Andrew, one of the five sons of Richard Ward, of 
Gorleston, in England, who was lord of a manor there, and who had property 
in several parts of the country which was left to his children. 

"There were five sons of Richard Ward. The oldest was Henry, born 
in the year 1559, and the fourth was Ralph. Ralph married a lady who was 
born in 1572. Now the next son, and the youngest, was Andrew, and An- 
drew's wife could not, naturally, be expected to have been born in 1606. So 
far as ages are concerned, they go to show that it was a grandson, and not a 
son, who came to this country. 

"Now, as regards Richard Ward, his will was probated in the Bisliop's 
Court in 1598. He gave to his son Henry all his lands in Horstead and 
Stoninghall, in Norfolk; to his son Richard all his lands, tenements, etc., in 
Metfield, Wethersdale, Menham, Sandcroft, Homersfield, St. Michaels and 
Flixton, in Suffolk, and all his remaining lands in Norfolk ; to his son Andrew 
333 pounds! He was succeeded by his son Henry Ward, lord of the manor, 
who was born in 1559 and died in 1645. He sold the manor to people of 
another nnme and moved to Norfolk, where the family continued for one or 
two generations, and then died out without issue. So much for the family 
of Richard Ward, the father of Andrew W^ard, and of whom our Andrew 
was doubtless the grandson. 

"We do not know that Richard Ward was the son of Thomas Ward, of 
Homersfield, in the northeast corner of Suffolk. Thomas Ward married the 
daughter of Dr. John Hare. Richard Ward married the daughter of Ricliard 



Historical 11 

Gunville, of Gorleston, and his wife inherited the manor from her brother, 
Henry, whose widow died in 1580; and at his widow's death it passed to the 
wife of Richard Ward. 

"There is an old and famous family of Gonvilles, in Suffolk, and this fam- 
ily is believed to be related to them, because they have the same arms as the 
more illustrious Gonville family who founded Gonville College, and the names 
of some of their descendants are given in this statement ; but the exact con- 
nection between the older Gonville family and the Gonville family of Gorles- 
ton is not directly traced, although a connection is plain from the arms. The 
heralds are very particular not to give the same arms to persons who are not of 
the same family, even if the names are the same. It was a rule that the 
consent of the heralds had always to be obtained before any family could get 
the arms, unless it was the same family ; and the arms of this Gunville family 
are the same as those of the earlier Gonvilles. 

"As for the Hare family, there is a similar pedigree traced down to this 
John Hare, who became a Doctor of Laws, and was a man of property, who 
died in 1526. His daughter married Thomas Ward. His father was Nich- 
olas Hare, who was the son of John Hare. 

"Thus, the Ward family was undoubtedly a good family. It is impossible 
that this Richard Ward could have sprung suddenly into riches, simply because 
he married the lady of Gorleston. His father was also a rich man, because 
he owned property at Homersfield, where his father came from. Although 
we do not know for certain the ancestry of Thomas Ward, his father, it is 
quite likely that it may be connected with the Ward family which is contained 
in the published pedigree I have spoken of. Many persons have attempted to 
prove this, but the actual proof has not yet been found. Still, the fact that 
this Thomas Ward was a country gentleman and the owner of property is 
well certified, and he must have inherited it from his father or mother. This 
is practically certain, because in those days it was very uncommon for people 
to make money in trade and then settle in the country and found families. 

"So that our Andrew Warde himself came of a Ward family which was 
of good landed stock in Suffolk, perhaps earlier in Norfolk; his grandmother, 
Anne Gunville, came of another noted family, and his grandfather, Richard 
Ward, was the son of a lady named Hare, who came of another noted family."

ANDREW WARDE 

Born in England, probably near the beginning of the seventeenth century, 
Andrew Warde, while yet a comparatively young man, left his home and 
emigrated to New England. This is said to have been about the year 1630. 
Among his fellow voyageurs are said to have been John Winthrop, Jr., after- 
ward Governor of Massachusetts; Rev. Mr. Phillips, and other emigrants 
from Suffolk and Essex counties, who came across the sea to join that resolute 
and hardy band of pioneers who were conquering a new world. We first 
hear of Andrew Warde at Watertown, Mass., where he early assumed prom- 
inence as a man of affairs in the small colony there established. His name is 
recorded in the second book of inventory, as having "an homestall of 10 acres, 
by estimation, bounded, the east by the driftway and John Dogget, the west by 
Winifred Wolcott, and the north by the great Pond, granted him." 

He held this estate as late as the year 1642, some seven or more years after 
his removal from Watertown. 

"The first month and 24th day, 1640. Lands of Andrew Warde, lying 
in Wethersfield on the Connecticut river. One piece whereon his house and 
barn stand, containing fouer acres more or less. The ends abutt against the 
street west and Great Meadows east, the sides against the house lotte of Mr. 
Smith south, and John Reynolds north. One piece lying in the Great ]\Iea- 
dows con : fourteen acres two roods. One piece lying in the Great Meadows. 
One piece lying in the Great Meadows. . . . foure acres. One piece 
lying in on backe lotte con : two acres 3 roods. One piece lying in the Dry 
Swamp ... 8 acres. One piece lying in the middle rowe of Wet 
Swamp ... 5 acres. One piece lying on Westfield . . . fifty-four 
acres. One piece lying on the west side of the Connecticut river, 274 acres. 
These lands abut against the Connecticut river west, the side against the lands 
of Mr. Smith and Jo. Reynolds, north. The lands across the Conn, river, op- 
posite Wethersfield would be in what is now Glastonbury." — Watertown 
Land Records. 

He was made freeman May 14, 1634. "Under the first charter of the 
Mass. colony none were regarded as freemen, or members of the body politic, 
except such as were admitted by the General Court, and took the oath of 
allegiance to the Government here established. This custom continuing in 
existence until by the 2d charter the colony was transferred into a province." 

AT WATERTOWN 

"There is no record extant of any municipal transactions of Watertown, 
of earlier date than 1634, four years after its first settlement .... No 
one had a right to vote, unless he were a freeman ; none could be admitted a 
freeman unless he were a church member, and the church was Congregational, 



Historical 13 

wherein its affairs were managed by the votes of the members. The church 
officers seem to have taken the lead both in civil and ecclesiastical affairs, and 
it is probable that, previously to 1634, the records were kept accordingly. 
Whatever those records were, they are lost." — Bond's History of Watertown, 
pp. 993-4. 

"In order for such admission, it was necessary to be a church-member, 
and for this reason there were some men holding respectable social positions, 
who never were thus admitted, or not until of advanced age. It was not 
necessary, however, to be a church-member, or a freeman, in order to hold 
office in the town or appointments from the Court. This could be done by 
taking the oath of fidelity, and, in some instances, townsmen, who were not 
freemen, were allowed to vote. Thomas Mayhew held a responsible appoint- 
ment from the Governor and Assistants, more than two years before he was 
admitted freeman." — Bond's Appendix I, p. 1016, § 78: Freemen. 

"Within the boundaries of Watertown, as determined by the Court in 
April, 1635, were embraced the present towns of Watertown, Waltham, Wes- 
ton, the largest part of Lincoln, and that part of Cambridge lying east of 
Mount Auburn Cemetery, between Fresh Pond and Charles River." — Bond's 
App. I, p. 990. 

So, knowing the man well from his reputation in later years, and judg- 
ing from the fact that he was honored with a place upon an important com- 
mission, we may safely conclude that during those few years of residence in 
Watertown, Andrew Warde was building for himself a reputation for honesty 
of purpose, sagacity of insight, and skill in the direction of municipal affairs; 
that he was growing every day in the esteem of his fellow men, and assuming 
the exalted position of a leader in all that pertained to the temporal and spirit- 
ual welfare of the community with which his lot was cast. The second period 
of his life was passed at Wethersfield, Conn. The occasion of his removal 
from Watertown to this place appears from a perusal of the minutes of the 
Bay Colony at its session held May 3, 1635-6. They are as follows: 

"A Commission graunted to severall persons to governe the People att 
Conecticott for the space of a Yeare, now nexte comeing. That some present 
governm't may be observed, thinke meete, & soe order, that Roger Ludlowe 
Esqr. Willm Pynchon Esqr. John Steele, Wm. Swaine, Henry Smith, Willm 
Phelps, Willm Westwood, & Andrew Warde, or the greater p'te of them 
shall have full power and aucthorite to hear and determine in a judiciall way 
by witnesses vpon oathe, examine within the said plantacon, all those differ- 
ences w'ch may arise between 'partie & partie' as also vpon misdemeanors to 
inflict corporall punishment or imprisonment to ffine & levy the same if occacon 
so require," etc. . . . 

Six public courts of this Commission were held during the year. Four of 
them at New Towne (Hartford), one at Dorchester (Windsor), and one at 



14 Ward Family Genealogy 

Watertowne (Wethersfield). The last meeting of the Commissioners' Court 
before the expiration of their year of office was held Feb. 21st, 1637. 

Following out these instructions, Andrew Warde removed from Water- 
town, Mass., and settled with his family in Wethersfield. He was a mem- 
ber of the Upper House when war was declared against the Pequots, May 1, 
1637 (o. s.). This was the first formal assertion of the sovereignty of the 
Colony. He was twice a member of the Committee, or Lower House of the 
General Court in 1637, and of the same House again in 1638. He was 
Deputy for four sessions after the confederation of the three towns (Windsor, 
Hartford and Wethersfield) into a colony in 1639. Afterward he was fre- 
quently a member of both branches of the Gen'l Court. In 1637 he was a col- 
lector of rates, and in connection with Cap't John Mason and Mr. Allen he 
was ordered to go to Agawam (Springfield) and treat with the Indians of 
Waronocke (Westfield) concerning the tribute toward the charges (assess- 
ments) of our war. In 1637 he was a member of the church in Wethersfield, 
and one of its staunchest and most esteemed supporters. Wethersfield, the old- 
est town in Connecticut, received from Watertown its first considerable emi- 
gration in 1634. Pyquaug, its Indian name, was changed in 1635 to Water- 
town, and later to Wethersfield. The few persons known in the Wethersfield 
records as the "adventurers" (i. e., occupants of lands not deriving their title 
from town), were either in person, or by representatives, the settlers of 1634. 
Stiles, the historian, remarks: "The interesting question naturally arises at 
this point, who were the hardy, we might almost say reckless, persons who first 
established themselves here? The problem is difficult of solution, and perhaps 
may never be settled beyond dispute. It is conceded that they were a mere 
handful in numbers, probably not a dozen all told. There is little doubt that 
they were all from Watertown, Mass. A church had been organized there as 
early as June, 1630. Under the leadership of Sir Richard Saltonstall, and the 
spiritual care of Rev. George Phillips, both of whom, in company with Gov- 
ernor Winthrop, had arrived there in June of that year." 

It was not until May of the following year that they had the permission 
of the General Court of Massachusetts "to remove whither they pleased so 
they continue under this government." Wethersfield's existence as a parish 
dates from the spring of 1636. The General Court of Connecticut, at its first 
session, April 26, 1636, ratified and confirmed a dismissal of certain members 
of the Watertown (Mass.) church, which had been granted on the 29th of 
March, 1635. The persons thus dismissed were: Andrew Warde, Rev. John 
Sherman, Robert Reynolds, John Strickland, Jonas Weed and Robert Coe. 

The first mentioned of this company was Andrew Warde. He was one 
of the foremost men of the colony, and seems to have left Watertown imme- 
diately after being admitted there as a freeman — May, 163-1 — and come to 
Wethersfield, or else some other person, acting in his interest, preceded him (he 
following in May, 1635) and took possession for him of 20 acres of the "Ad- 



Historical 15 

venturers' Land." Prior to his removal to Rippowams (Stamford), in 1640, 
he sold these lands to Robert Rose, who already held the same amount in his 
own right. So, with these members of the Watertown church, our ancestor 
came to Wethersfield. 

Others, doubtless, were in the company, but these are mentioned as the 
leaders. They were authorized to form anew in a church covenant in Con- 
necticut, and they promised to renew the covenant, so the record of the 
General Court says. Mr. Warde was one of the five members then consti- 
tuting that court. With the possible exception of Robert Reynolds, the per- 
sons named formed the nucleus of the new ecclesiastical society. 

In 1637, when the General Court was divided into an upper and a lower 
section, "Andrew Warde and William Swayne, Gentleman, became members 
of the upper section," and hence may be said to have been the first members 
of what would now be called the Senate, from Wethersfield. 

In the History of Connecticut, by Dr. Benjamin Trumbull, we find the 
following notes: 

"Mr. William Swayne, Mr. Thurston Raynor, Mr. Henry Smith, Mr. 
Andrew Warde, Mr. Mitchell and Mr. John Deming were some of the chief 
men who settled the town of Wethersfield. These were the civil and religious 
fathers of the colony. They formed its free and happy constitution, were it? 
legislators and some of the chief pillars of the church and commonwealth. 
They, with many others of the same excellent character, employed their abili- 
ties and their estates for the prosperity of the colons ." 

Speaking of the court which assembled in Hartford on Monday, May 1, 
1637, he says: "As they were to deliberate on matters in which the lives 
of the subjects and the very existence of the colony were concerned, the towns 
for the first time sent committees. The spirited measures adopted by this 
court render the names of the members worthy of perpetuation." The magis- 
trates were Roger Ludlow, Esq., ^Ir. Welles, Mr. Swain, Mr. Steele, Mr. 
Phelps and Mr. Warde. 

AT STAMFORD. 

We now pass to the third period in the history of our ancestor, which 
began with his removal from Wethersfield to the town which is now known 
as Stamford, Conn. In the Church of Christ to-day there are, as the Scripture 
saith, "differences of administration," or, as we should say, "diversity of talent." 
Some men are peculiarly gifted as leaders of spiritual thought; others have 
talent for stimulating and turning into practical and elevating channels the 
social instinct of the members; others possess marked capacity for leadership 
in new enterprises. These last are the organizers, the men who assume and 
sustain the executive burdens of every scheme looking to the welfare of their 
particular church. 



16 Ward Family Genealogy 

The same diversity of talent is observable in the men who perform the 
duties of pioneers in the work of transforming rural settlements into towns 
and towns into cities and cities into great centers of industry. Some there 
are who seem to have developed very largely a love for and skill in the build- 
ing up of the waste places into habitable homes, where men and women dwell 
in peace under the protection of just laws, enforced by righteous rulers. 

Andrew Warde seems to have had this intuitive love of town building. 
He was a great organizer. Wise in counsel, energetic in advancing schemes 
for the development of the resources of new fields, and possessing a personal 
magnetism which awoke enthusiasm in his enterprises and gained recruits for 
carrying forward the plans which his fertile brain had matured. 

He was a leader in Watertown, a leader in Wethersfield, a leader in 
Stamford, a leader in Fairfield. Wherever he cast his lot he assumed the 
leadership — not boastfully, not in any sense arbitrarily, but by sheer force of 
persistency in getting things done and through the recognition of his peculiar 
abilities by his fellowmen which invariably followed. 

The present town of Stamford was originally settled under the name of 
"Wethersfield Men's Plantation." As was the case in his earlier career, when 
he left Watertown to found a new habitation in Wethersfield at the behest of 
the Bay Colony, so now, through negotiations with the General Court of New 
Haven, Andrew Warde, in company with others, becomes the founder of a 
new settlement. I quote from Dr. Huntington's admirable history of Stam- 
ford, Conn., p. 15. 

The following record of the decision of the General Court of New 
Haven, held the 14th day of the ninth month, 1640, exhibits the title under 
which the colonists were to take possession of their new domain : "Whereas, 
Andrew Warde and Robert Coe, of Wethersfield, were deputed by Wethers- 
field men, the 30th of the eighth month, commonly called October, 1640, to 
treat at New Haven about the plantation lately purchased by said town called 
Toquams, which, being considered of, it was agreed upon by the said court 
and justices aforesaid, that they shall have the said plantation upon the terms 
following: First, that they shall repay unto the said town of New Haven 
all the charges which they have disbursed about it, which comes to thirty-three 
pounds, as appears by a note or schedule hereunto annexed ; secondly, that 
they shall reserve a fifth part of said plantation to be disposed of at the 
appointment of this court to such desirable persons as may be expected, or as 
God shall send hither, provided that if within one whole year such persons 
do not come to fill up those lots so reserved, that then it shall be free for the 
said people to nominate and present to this court some persons of their own 
choice, which may fill up some of those lots so reserved, if this court approves 
of them ; thirdly, that they join in all points with this plantation in the form 
of government here settled, according to agreement, betwixt this court and 
Mr, Samuel Eaton about the plantation of Totokett. These articles being 



Historical 17 

read, together with Mr. Samuel Eaton's agreement, in the hearing of the 
said parties, or deputies, it was accepted by them, and in witness thereof they 
submitted their names to the articles in the face of the court. 

"The following passage is from the first book of the Stamford records, 
defaced in some places and wanting in others. The effaced portions are here 
included in parentheses. The earlier records are all in the handwriting of 
Richard Law. The first paragraph, which is a mere title, was evidently in- 
serted after the name of the settlement had been changed. '1640-41. A 
townebo(ok of the) freeholders of the towne (of-Stamford as it) was after- 
wards called, but now Rippowam, contay(n)in(g the acts) and conclusions 
of the companie of Wethersffeld men, to (begin a) removal thither this 
Winter. And also their most materiale acts and agreements, touching the 
place, how they came by it, their rat(es) and accounts, their divisions and 
grants of land, and records of every man's lands, and passages of land from 
one to another. First, these men whose names are underwritten have bound 
thems( elves) under the paine of forfiture of 5 lb. a man, to goe or sende to

be(r) 12 months, viz.: 

Ri Denton, 

Ma Mitchell, 

Thur Rainor, 

Rob't Coe, 

And Warde and fifteen others.' " 

Andrew Warde seems to have continued his municipal activities during 
his sojourn in Stamford. He was honored by the inhabitants of that town in 
his election, first as constable, October 26, 1642, and later as magistrate, 
which office he assumed October 27, 1646, and held for the term of one year. 
He represented Stamford in the General Court of New Haven Colony in 
1644. 

On the 27th of October, 1641, he was with Francis Bell, Representative 
of Stamford, at New Haven, and both were admitted members of the court 
and received the charge of freemen to treat with the court about the planta- 
tion (Toquams, or Stamford), lately purchased. 

In the October (1642) session of the Court, "Goodman Warde" is 
chosen constable for Stamford. His office was a very different one from that 
which is now discharged under that name. It was one of high dignity and 
of solemn responsibility. (Huntington's Hist, of Stamford, pp. 67-8.) 

At the assembling of the General Court at New Haven, April 15, 1643, 
his letter was presented, written in the name of freeplanters, introducing Capt. 
John Underbill and Richard Gildersleeve as Deputies to the court at Stam- 
ford, at the same time requesting that a magistrate might be chosen for the 
better administration of the prudential affairs of that town. He, with Rob't 



18 Ward Family Genealogy 

Coe, was appointed to assist at the next General Court of Election at New 
Haven, in counsel and advice for the more comely carrying on of public 
affairs. He was again elected one of the Deputies from Stamford to the 
General Court of New Haven in 1644 and 1646. At the same time Andrew 
Warde, George Hull and William Beardsley, of Stamford, were nominated 
as assistants to join with the magistrates for the execution of justice in the 
towns of Connecticut by the seaside. He purchased Simon Hoyt's lot, west of 
Hyde Pond, which he sold in 1653 to Edward Adams, and purchased from 
Alexander Bryan, the same year, Thomas Newton's home and house lot on the 
Ludlow Square. He was one of the most important and influential men in 
Fairfield. 

AT FAIRFIELD, CONN. 

From address of Henry C. Sturges, Esq., of Fairfield, at the unveiling of 
the Andrew Warde monument in Fairfield cemetery, June 13, 1907: 

"This is a memorable occasion, and a notable gathering on a most historic 
site, and no better preparation could be made for the exercises of the day than 
to dwell for a few moments on that far off time when Andrew Warde dwelt 
almost under the shadow of this building (Fairfield Historical Society Build- 
ing) and had for his neighbors one of the goodliest companies to be found in 
all the eastern colony. Imagine, then, that you are once more standing on 
this spot and gazing around _\ou at the ancient settlement of 1651. But what 
a change! To the north, as a background, arises the rock, crowned with a 
growth of lordly pines. The scene reminds you of a western clearing fifty 
years ago. Stumps of trees are in evidence, and rocky grounds. There are 
well defined trails to the north, south, east and west, following the roads of 
the present day. On the left is a lovely pond seen through surrounding trees 
and on these trails around the pond are rude log structures one story in 
height. The northernmost house to the left is the first Fairfield home of 
Andrew Warde, and opposite we see the fine homes of Roger Ludlow and 
Nathan Gold. Facing us on the corner stands the first home of Jolin Banks, 
the Surveyor of Fairfield, to ^\•hose skill we owe it that tlie squares of the 
town were laid out in such a regular manner. To our left, where Dr. 
Donaldson now resides, we see the home of Richard Lyon, and earlier of 
Thomas Wheeler, Jr., worthy ancestors of the good man who founded this 
library. Next to him stands the home of Thomas Pell, who later on was to 
give the name to Pell-Ham-]\Ianor, and opposite (on the postoffice side) the 
home of Humphrey Hyde, who afterwards gave the name to the pond ; and 
about where the depot now stands, the first houses in Fairfield of Joshua 
Jennings and Francis Bradley, the progenitors of families who for genera- 
tions have stood for what was great and good in town and nation. On the 
site of what is now the library corner, there was at that time the homestead 
of Alexander Knowles, a man prominent in public affairs, and judge of the 



Historical 19 

Gen. Court of Conn. Looking up the street to the right, stood the house of 
Philip Pinckne^', ancestor of Gen. Charles Coleman Pinckney, of Revolu- 
tionary fame, and those distinguished men and women whom South Carolina 
is proud to call her own. Opposite Philip Pinckney (the Flint corner) the 
homestead of Henr\ Rowland; opposite to him, Anthony Wilson, and to 
the southward, the home of Capt. Richard Osborn, hero of the Pequot War. 
There were no fences, the home lots being defined by stone markings, much 
uncleared land and dense forests on all sides. To properly people this wild 
scene, remember, that the period of Andrew Warde's sojourn covered that 
part of English history given up to the Cavalier and Round Head, the reign 
of Charles I, his execution, the Protector, the death of Cromwell, and the 
accession of Charles HI, all proclaimed on these streets. The homes and 
household were of the simplest, but the keynote was Godliness. The Bible, 
but also the great and little gun and sword, were to be found in every house- 
hold. Andrew Warde came to place on record the most memorable of God's 
passages in settling his people in this country. On or about the time that 
he moved his residence to what we are pleased to call Main street, many of 
his old neighbors moved with him — so we find in close proximity again the 
homes of Roger Ludlow, Andrew Warde, Nathan Gold, Richard Lyon, 
Thomas Pell, Thomas Sherwood, Robert Hawkins, Jacob Gray, Alexander 
Bryan, all his near neighbors, while from the Church corner south, reading 
right to left, were located John Banks, John Burr, Nehemiah Olmsted, 
Nathaniel Baldwin, Simon Ho^t, John Nichols, Henry Rowland, and oppo- 
site, the Pinckne^'s and Burrs, names identified with every phase of early 
colonial history. ^lention has been made of the crudeness of the dwellings 
and the roughness of the surroundings. It was years after the time of 
Andrew Warde that the town assumed shape and comeliness. There were 
structures of stone as well as of logs, but the early settlers were of sturdy 
stock, hardened to toil. 

"Appended to the will of Andrew Warde are the names of Alexander 
Knowles (who probably drew up the document), and Nathan Gold, both life- 
long friends and neighbors. 

"Andrew Warde lived among us for some fourteen years, dying in 1659. 
As we wend our way this afternoon to the ancient cemetery, where he was 
laid to rest, and listen to the narration of his life and good works, having 
previously visited his home and tried to picture the town as it then was, and 
the inhabitants as they moved to and fro in their various avocations, will it not 
be natural to try and imagine the last scene in the drama — his funeral — the 
beat of muffled drums and armed men bearing the bier to the rough church 
structure, a notable gathering, among many others the names Nathan Gold, 
Alexander Knowles, John Banks, representatives of Church and State delega- 
tions, also representatives of the Burrs, Jennings, Beers, Lyons, Wheelers, 



20 Ward Family Genealogy 

Sturgesses, Osborns, Rowlands, and other ancestors of those who will this 
afternoon dedicate the monument to his memorj'. 

"And as we stand around the spot where his ashes repose, let us hope, if 
it is possible, for the spirits of those long since dead to revisit the scenes of 
their earthly habitations, that the invisible presence of this noble company of 
the founders of ancient Fairfield may be present with us in spirit, as they 
were present in body in that long past day in 1651." 

Upon the same occasion an admirable address was made by Judge John 
Hoyt Perry, of Fairfield, upon the topic, "Andrew Warde as a Citizen of 
Fairfield." Judge Perry's remarks, largely historical, covered much of that 
which has already been recited. He closed with this eloquent tribute : 

"We do not mark a grave to-day, we memorialize a life ; and of that 
life the foregoing is the story as told in the records of the communities where 
it was spent. It is merely an articulated skeleton showing fitness for work, 
adequacy under burdens, capacity to accomplish, and because it is of necessity 
a skeleton we miss the flesh and blood which, clothing bare capacity, make for 
human interest and attractiveness. Candor compels us to admit that he was 
not the ablest or most important or most famous citizen of the town. Roger 
Ludlow heads the list of several to whom history accords at least as high a 
place as his. He was simply a well bred, intelligent, conscientious, public 
spirited, ambitious man. He led a useful, trusted life and followed the way. 
He consorted with the best and served his fellows. His descendants have 
achieved distinction in widely separated fields, and in this town are called by 
the names of Jennings, Sturges, Wheeler, Wakeman, Gould, Burr, Bulklej-, 
Ogden, Dimon and Perry. Whether they have preserved the Ward tradi- 
tion of disinterested public service you can best decide. And now, j'our 
labors, long since done, your untiring quest for something better satisfied, 
rest well, Andrew Warde, Adventurer. You lie in friendly soil. Fairfield 
cherishes your memory, honors your descendants and is a better town for 
your guiding hand upon its infancy. 'Rest well !' " 

Prof. Edward J. Ward of Hamilton College, then delivered an address 
upon the topic, "Our Debt to the Fathers," which was in part as follows: 

"Here is our debt to Andrew Warde that in his life he built and handed 
down to us the legacy of a strong, deep chested, clean limbed, sturdy body, 
and a mind, firm fibered, balanced, sane. In his work he was faithful in 
places of public trust and so gives us a heritage of faithfulness; in his home 
he was true and so the stream of our heredity is pure. It is not the positions 
that he held and the power that he gained that make us his debtors ; it is the 
fact that he was worthy of those positions and that his will to do the riij;ht 
was stronger than the temptations which came with the power that he had. 
This is a heredity better than ancestral halls or lands or crests. With a good 
heritage of body, brain and will a child is rich. Without this, though he be 
heir to the wealth of tlie Indies, he is poor. In tlie will of that old Puritan 



Historical 21 

we read : 'The last will and testament of Andrew Warde, situate and living in 
Fairfield, being at present, through mercy, well both in mind and memory.' 
Then he goes on to bequeath to his wife and children his estate. But his true 
bequest to his posterity was not the third of his estate or the forty pounds 
given to this child or that; it was in the fact that, in mind and body and in 
character, he was well." 

Thus ended the life of this good man. His career was an eventful one. 
Covering a period of only threescore years, it left its impress upon four dis- 
tinct communities. The records of Watertown, Wethersfield, Stamford and 
Fairfield, each in turn bear witness to the valued services of Andrew Warde. 
His abilities, quickly recognized, secured for him honorable position, placed 
him in the front rank and singled him out as a man whose fitness to represent 
his constituents honorably and with discretion was unchallenged. Unfortun- 
ately, we have no written statements and very few traditions upon which to 
base an estimate of his domestic life. There is likewise a paucity of detail 
as regards his religious and ecclesiastical life ; but in the absence of positive 
information touching these matters, the whole career of the man points un- 
erringly to a beautiful home life and a consistent daily walk and conversation. 
As an office-bearer in the church he undoubtedly brought to the duties of 
his office the same honest purpose, discriminating judgment and tireless zeal in 
service which marked his career in secular affairs. 

Would that some contemporary of our distinguished ancestor were here 
to-day to draw us within the inner circle of that life, whose outward develop- 
ment was so fruitful of good to his fellowmen, so genial in its companionships, 
so honest and painstaking in its conduct of business and legislative pursuits, so 
intense in its application to duty. 

THE GENERATION FOLLOWING 

In his valuable history. Savage gives a list of the nine children of Andrew 
Warde, following its recital with these significant words, "of not one of whom 
is the date of birth known, except Andrew's ( 1647)." After careful examina- 
tion of genealogical data contained in local and State histories, biographical 
volumes and private papers, I have found nothing to contradict that statement. 
But, while we may not be certain of the exact year of birth of any of these 
children, we may unquestionably determine the approximate ages of at least 
several of them. In the valuable manuscript treatise of H. G. Somerby, Esq.. 
of Boston, official genealogist for the N. E. Historical and Genealogical So- 
ciety, upon the Andrew Warde family, we note the following items: 

"The children of Andrew Warde and Hester, his wife, were: (1) 
Edmund, named in his father's will as being away; as he is not alluded to in 
his mother's will, he probably died before 1666, without issue. (2) Anna. 
(3) William, probably born in 1635. In 1656, he purchased a house and 



22 Ward Family Genealogy 

land in Fairfield, where he died in 1676, and his widow administered upon 
his estate. (4) Mary, b. 1637. (5) John, b. 1639. (7) Abigail, b. 1643. 
(8) Andrew, b. 1645. In 1668 he purchased of his brother Samuel half of 
the house and home lot which was left to them b}- their father. (9) Samuel, 
b. 1647. He died at Fairfield, Jan. 8, 1693, and his widow and son Edmund 
administered upon his estate. 

"The time of birth of Andrew Warde's children is calculated from that 
of the youngest son. In the year 1659, the date of the father's will, Andrew 
and Samuel were both minors, and the legacy to them was to be divided 
\\hen the youngest of the two became of age. The town records of Fairfield 
show that this division took place in 1668, which places Samuel's birth in 
1647. Supposing two years to have intervened between the births of all the 
children, it would give the ages as I have enumerated them. This calculation 
is strengthened by the fact that William purchased a house and lot in 1656, 
the year when he probabl\- arrived at his majority. As Edmund is not 
alluded to in his mother's will, and no mention made of him in subsequent 
records, it is probable that he died before that time unmarried. It is also fair 
to presume that John was not living when his mother died, as his children 
only are spoken of in her will, and he does not afterward appear in any rec- 
ords." 

The mere repetition of the names of the families with which the children 

of Andrew Warde made alliance seems at once to link more closely the men 
and women of the present day with the old Fairfield ancestor. The Himts, 
Bulkleys, Wakemans, Hawleys, Ferrys, Wlieclers, Nichols, Dimons, iMeigs, 
Lockwoods and Ogdens, are all of to-day, the representatives of large and 
influential families in New England, in the Empire State, and in many other 
States of the Union. Of these families the descendants of Andrew emigrated 
to what was then the frontier country of western New \ ork and settled in 
Erie, Genesee and Monroe Counties. They were prominent among tlie 
founders of Buffalo, Rochester, and other cities in that part of the State. 
The descendants of Samuel became Westchester Co. and New York City 
people, and through this line have come many of the influential men and 
women of the Metropolis. 

The will of Andrew Warde, dated Fairfield, June 8, 1659, is as follows: 
"The last will and testament of Andrew Warde, situate and living in 
Fairfield, being at present, through mercy, well both in mind and memory, yet 
not knowing how the Lord may deal with mee. I therefore commit my soul 
to God that gave it, and my body to a comely buriall. And for all my estate 
as follov\eth : All our debts first pay'd. Imprimis, I give unto Ester, m\ be- 
loved wife, forty pounds, to be pay'd out of my movable estate, and one-third 
part of all my lands and housing in Fairfield during her widowhood ; but in 
case a second marriage be performed then to possess noe part of the said hous- 
ing or land any longer, but my will is, a third part of what the said lands may 



Historical 23 

be indifferenti}' judged to be rented per annum shall be pay'd unto her use 
during her life. 2. I give unto my sonn, John, fifty pounds, to be pay'd unto 
him at the age of one and twenty years. 3. I give unto my daughter, Sarah, 
forty pounds, to be pay'd within one year after her marriage. 4. I give 
unto my daughter, Abigail, forty pounds, to be pay'd imto lier at the age of 
eighteen years. 5. I give unto Andrew and Samuel all my housing and lands, 
with such rights and dues that doth belong, as an installment, equally to be 
divided when the eldest commeth to the age of one and twenty. And what 
improvement can be made before the said Andrew commeth to the age of one 
and twenty, to be equally, to be divided between them. And what improve- 
ment can be made of my sonn Samuel's part before he commeth to be twenty- 
one years of age, to be for his proper use. And at twenty-one years of age 
to enjoy the full propriety, according to the promises, yet not at all molesting 
or hindering my wife's thirds during her widdowhood ; and in case any of 
my two sonns Andrew and Samuel dye before they come to age of one and 
twenty, as aforesaid, then my will that the survivor shall enjoy all that is due 
to both. 6. And, farther, my will is that what doth remayn of my movable 
estate after all debts and legacies be pay'd, shall equally be divided between my 
two sonns, Andrew and Samuel. 

"7. And for the rest of my children, they have received their full portions 
already, except my sonn Edmond, who, if he come to this place, my will is 
that out of my two younger sons, Andrew and Samuel's, portions, there may 
be pay'd twenty pounds. In witness to the premises that this is my true and 
last will, revoking all others, I have hereunto subscribed my name (tho written 
all by my owne hand). 

"Andrew Warde." 

This will was probated at a session of the court held at Fairfield the 20th 
day of October, 1659. The inventory of the estate was exhibited to the court 
and attested by the widow. Ester Warde. There being no executor mentioned 
in the will, the court duh appointed Ester Warde and William Warde, the 
son of Andrew, as his administrators. The inventory showed the estate to be 
valued at the sum of £242 10s.

26 Ward Family Genealogy 

PEDIGREE OF HESTER (SHERMAN) WARDE. 

"The Shermans are of German origin. In the fatherland, the name Sher- 
man, Schurman, Schearmann, Scherman, often occurs, and it was no doubt 
transferred many centuries ago to the vicinity of London by the Anglo- 
Saxon emigration, where it still remains numerous. From this metropolitan 
stock, a scion was transplanted to Dedham, Essex Co., England. The name 
is derived from the original occupation of the family ; they were cloth dressers, 
or shearers of the cloth. The family at Dedham retained the occupation, and 
also the coat of arms, worn by those residing in or about London. In New 
England are found two distinct families bearing the name of Sherman. One 
of these descends from William Sherman, who came to Plymouth with the 
Pilgrims and settled at Marshfield, where his descendants still remain. Of 
his place of birth, or English antecedents, we know nothing. The other is the 
Dedham stock, a branch of which emigrated to New England and settled in 
the vicinity of Boston, Mass. The first of the name of that line, of whom 
we have any knowledge, and perhaps the one who originally emigrated there, 
was Henry Sherman, the ancestor of Hester (Sherman) Warde, and also of 
these distinguished men who occupied so exalted a place in the nation's history 
— Roger Sherman, and the brothers Gen. William T. and Senator Sherman. 
Edmund Sherman, grandson of the above Henry, was born in England and 
married Judith Angier. They came to America about 1632 and settled 
in Watertown, Mass. ; thence removed to Wethersfield, Conn., and finally 
to New Haven, Conn., where they died. The\ had as their fifth child Hester, 
born Apr. 1, 1606." — Rev. David Sherman, A.M., Wilbraham, Mass., in 
N. E. Gen. and Biog. Reg., vol. 24, pp. 62-3. 

There are other families of the Ward name living in the United States 
which have become prominent in social, political and literar\- circles. 

Andrew Henshaw Ward, a distinguished genealogist of half a century 
ago, tells, in his History of the William Ward family, of the fame achieved b\ 
men like General Artemus Ward, of Revolutionary times, and Dr. William 
Hayes Ward, the eminent writer of our own day. 

Then there is the Ward family of Rhode Island, one member of which, 
the Hon. Samuel Ward, was a member of the Continental Congress and thrice 
Governor of his State, and a large family of this name in New Jerse\', in whose 
ranks are found men and women of eminence in business and social circles. 

It is well known that the Wards of Massachusetts and Connecticut came 
from the same general locality In England and the coat of arms of the Samuel 
Ward (Rhode Island) line is similar in almost e\ery detail to that of the 
Andrew Warde family. It is not unlikely, tlierefore, that a close family con- 
nection might be traced between these tliree families in tlie Old Countr\-.

house and four acres of land, also land of other individuals." Feb. 14, 1669: 
"The town granted to William Ward, three acres of land." May 2, 1678: 
"William Ward, deceased, did in his lifetime purchase of Joseph Middlebrook, 
lands, etc." Mar. 4, 1679: "William Ward in his lifetime, and his successor, 
since his death, hath had quiet possession upwards of twenty years, as his own

"He resided at Stratford until about 1670, when, with most of his 
family, he removed to Woodbur}', Conn., although retaining all his pro- 
prietary rights at Stratford, which, together with his plantation at Wood- 
bury, according to his last will and testament, were devised to his wife 
and children and afforded each a handsome competency. He evidently enjoyed 
the esteem of his fellow citizens of Stratford during his protracted residence 
there, as, on several occasions, they honored him with the important office of 
Townsman, or Selectman, the Townsman being, as it were, the moral and 
economic conservator of the township." — "Sergeant Francis NichoUs and His 
Descendants," p. 16.

years earlier. His home lot was No. 37, which he purchased of Richard Miles 
in or before the year 1650. He was prominent in the town and a more than 
usually energetic business man. He purchased of the Indians a large tract 
of land in Derby, of which the town allowed him to retain the old Indian 
planting field, and also another tract which joined it, including Great Hill. 
He was chosen Deputy in 1665, and many times thereafter until near his 
decease. His will is dated 1689. He died the following year. (2) Oct. 17,

Referring to the stone of Hester Ward in the old Fairfield, Conn., 
cemetery : "The least preserved of these tomb waifs * * » is the one 
inscribed to Mrs. Hester Lord; date not legible, but probably 1730. She was 
a descendant of the noted settler, Andrew Warde, was endowed with rare 
qualities of mind and form, and married successively four men of wealth and 
position. Tradition reports her a woman who was widely respected, whose 
abundant means were dispensed with an open hand." — Address of Wm. A. 
Beers as published in "The Old Burying Ground of Fairfield," p. 227. 

As to the name "Hester": "Andrew Warde's wife was baptized 'Hester.' 
It is a good old English variant of Esther, and is preferred in literature, as in 
the 'Scarlet Letter' and other novels. In Andrew's will it is 'Ester.' In her 
own, it is 'Hester,' both for herself and her grandchild, daughter of William 
Ward, and 'Hester Burr' for another grandchild. The grandchild, Hester 
Ward, married four times, and calls herself finally, 'Hester Lord' in her own 
will. She is also called 'Hester' in her first marriage contract. Abigail, 
daughter of Andrew Warde, had a daughter who was named Hester in her 
father's (Dimon's) will. Moses Dimon's grandson, John, had a daughter 
baptized 'Hester.' » * * Andrew's wife was surely Hester, and it was 
only long after her death that those who knew better succeeded in making her 
descendants call their girls 'Esther.' I do not find Hester Ward's name 
ever written 'Esther' in her lifetime." — Emory McClintock correspondence.

Wheeler, Jr.; b. July 5, 1651; d. Jan. 30, 1724; son Moses and Miriam 
(Hawley) Wheeler. 

Moses Wheeler, 1st, was born in England, probably in the County of 
Kent in 1598, where the Wheeler familv had resided for over four hundred 



32 Ward Family Genealogy 

years. He left London in 1638 and, coming to America, joined the New 
Haven Colony, and was among the first to receive an allotment of land in that 
Colony. He married Miriam Hawley, a sister of Joseph Hawley, one of the 
first and most influential settlers in this Colony. Here he resided until 1648, 
when he was expelled from the Colony, because of a slight infringement of one 
of the Blue Laws, for which this Colony was so noted. According to tradi- 
tion, he had been absent from home for several months. The day upon 
which he returned from his long journey was Sundaj'. The happiness which 
he naturally felt on being united to his family once more completely banished 
from his remembrance all idea of the Blue Laws, and he accordingly kissed 
his wife and children. This act coming to the knowledge of the authorities, 
he was immediately expelled from the Colony. He then joined the little 
settlement of Stratford. Here he purchased his home lot from the Indians on 
the shore, near what is now known as Sandy Hollow. He afterwards bought 
a vast tract of land near the Ferry. He was allowed by the General Court to 
keep the Ferry. He built a stone house on his property, which descended 
to his son, Moses 2d, who about the year 1 670 built a wooden house very near 
the old stone one, which remained standing until May 12, 1891, when the 
old ruin was blown up with dynamite. (See photo.) Ten years previous to 
his death, Moses Wheeler 1st disposed of most of his property to his son — 
Moses 2d, to whom the homestead descended ; Samuel, and his son-in-law, 
Joseph Walker, receiving land he had bought of the Indians as far north as 
Derby. 

"The Indians living on the Golden Hill, Bridgeport, reservation, when all 
but four of the tribe had departed to the happy hunting grounds, in 1659 gave 
their first deed to the whites, and Moses Wheeler was the lucky man." — From 
Bridgeport Telegram. 

Moses Wheeler 1st, besides being one of the largest land owners, was 
one of the leading and most influential men in the town. He was a strong, 
powerful man, of whom the Indians stood in mortal terror. No wonder, if 
tradition is true. One day several Indians called at his house. He under- 
stood that their purpose was to kill him. He was engaged in making soap. It 
was boiling in a huge kettle and was very hot. He invited his guests to take 
a drink of cider, and while they were partaking, he took the paddle with 
which he was stirring it and covered them with the scalding soap. He died on 
the 15th of January, 1698, aged 100 years, and enjoys the distinction of being 
the first centenarian white man in New England. He is buried in the old 
Congregational Church yard at Stratford. A rough stone, cut from the rocks 
at the homestead, marks his grave. Moses Wheeler 2d died Jan. 30, 1724, 
in the 74th year of his age. He is buried at the side of his father, and a similar 
stone marks his grave. He left a large estate, making him among the wealthy 
men of Stratford. His son Elnathan occupied the homestead. Stephen 
Wheeler, a descendant, was the last of the family to live there.

mund 4-- 266, Samuel; b. Mar. 14, 1708. (See Scharf? History of 
Westchester Co., pp. 746-50.) 

The name "Edmund Ward" is closely identified with the history of 
Eastchester, Westchester Co., N. Y. In Bolton's Hist, of Westchester Co., 
vol. 1, p. 211, we find the following item: "In the year 1700 it was resolved 
by the inhabitants of the town of Eastchester that Edmund Ward shall have 
and hold sixty acres of land, in consideration that the said Edmund Ward do 
pay the Indians purely, and clear the said town of and from the said payment 
when need be, etc." Some years earlier than this transaction, it is likely that 
Edmund Ward, and possibly his aged father Samuel, removed from Fairfield to 
Eastchester. Samuel died Jan. 8, 1693, and his widow, Hannah, and son 
Edmund administered upon his estate. Under date Dec. 28, 1699, we find 
the following in the Greenfield, Conn., Probate Records: "Edmund Ward, 
belonging to the manor of Fordham, in the county of Westchester, in the 
province of New York, administrator on the estate of my honored father, 
Samuel Ward, late of Fairfield, in the Colony of Connecticut, deceased, at a 
special court held at Fairfield, Mar. 29, 1693, have by these presents, delivered 
unto my loving brother, William Ward, according to order of court, for his 
legacy, the several tracts of land, hereafter mentioned," etc. Edmund Ward 
was one of the foremost men of this new settlement of Eastchester. B\' special 
grant of the crown, he, in company with others, became proprietor of what 
was known as the Long Reach, or New Patent. "Anne, by the grace of God, 
of Great Britain, France and Ireland, etc., the Queen, defender of the faith, 
etc., grants to Col. William Peartree and others (among them Edmund 
Ward) a tract of land in Westchester Co. Dated 23rd of Sep. in the 7th 
year of her Majesty's reign, 1708." (Bolton Hist. Westchester Co., vol. 1, 

P-211-) 

Mr. Ward was very active in all affairs pertaining to the welfare of the 

new settlement. He was Town Clerk, Recorder, etc., and held many offices 

of trust and responsibility. "The name of Ward was, during the 18th and 

the first half of the 19th centuries, that of the strongest family in the town 

of Eastchester. Edmund Ward was one of the patentees of the Long Reach 

grant. His son Edmund was the Colonial Member of Assembly, and his two 



Third Generation 37 

grandchildren were distinguished in the Revolution — Edmund, for his inflex- 
ible self-sacrifice and loyalty, and Stephen, for his services in the patriot cause. 
Charles and Jonathan, sons of Stephen, rose to offices of influence and honor 
in the town." (Scharff History of Westchester Co., vol. 2, p. 750.) 

Among other pedigrees given by Mr. Bolton in his History of Westches- 
ter Co. is that of Ward (vol. 1, p. 254). Edmund Ward, of Eastchester, 
patentee of Long Reach, is there recorded as son of Andrew Warde, of Fair- 
field. Some members of the Westchester branch of the family adhere to this 
view.

This John Ward was one of the executors of his nephew Edmund's 
estate. "I further nominate, constitute and appoint my well beloved wife, 
Phebe Ward, and my loving uncle, John Ward, executors of this my last 
will and testament." (From will of Edmund Ward, proved in Prerogative 
Court of New York, Apr. 27, 1732.) John Ward late in life seems to have 
removed to Peekskill, N. Y., where he was buried, and his monument is found. 
He thus became the founder of the large and Influential family of that name 
in Peekskill, and was the ancestor of Judge John Currey and his brother Rev. 
Daniel Currey, D.D., one of the leading Methodist Episcopal clergymen of 
his day.

distant ports of the Orient — but notwithstanding the magnitude and import- 
ance of his commercial interests, he was ardently given to philosophical specu- 
lation, becoming a recognized authority in the science of astronomy, which 
subject he pursued with all the pertinacity and acumen of a Newton or a 
Herschel ; his deductions being quoted by more than one of the standard 
treatises of the day. He, moreover, occupied an exalted position in the realm 
of mathematics, being the author of the decimal monetary system of the U. S., 
the formula of which he submitted to Hon. William Samuel Johnson, who 
was U. S. Senator from Connecticut at the time ; and he recognizing its prac- 
tical utility, presented it to Congress, and an enactment was at once had under 
which Connecticut and IVIassachusetts began in 1785 to coin copper cents; the 
full decimal currency being evolved by degrees, until the full decimal system 
was made legal in 1798. In the old Stratfield Cemetery at Bridgeport, Conn., 
is his monument, upon which is inscribed the following epitaph : 

" 'Stephen Burroughs, Esq., a man distinguished by his industry and his 
talents and acquirements, self-taught and original ; he explored the vast fields 
of mathematical and astronomical science, beyond all the efforts of a Cassini 
or a Newton, and made discoveries of a most useful and astonishing nature,

but, in consequence of his blindness, his discoveries are lost to the world. This 
monument is erected by Pixlee Judson.' " — "Francis Nicholls and His De- 
scendants," pp. 77-8.

Aaron Burr belonged to a Puritan family that for three generations had 
given to the Church and State men of eminence. He was graduated at Yale 
in his nineteenth year, having gained one of the three Berkeley scholarships, 
which entitled him to maintenance at the college for two years after graduat- 
ing. While pursuing his post-graduate studies he was converted, and at once 
turned his attention to theology. At the age of twenty-two he became pastor 
of the Presbyterian Church in Newark, N. Jersey, where he soon ac- 
quired a commanding reputation as a pulpit orator. Here he also established a 
school for boys, which proved highly successful. He prepared for his students 
a Latin grammar (1752), which was long in use at Princeton. In later 
years he published a small work on the Supreme Deity of our Lord Jesus 
Christ. In 1748 he became president of Princeton College. In the Autumn 



Fourth Generation ^^ 

of 1756 he resigned his charge at Newark and removed to Princeton, where 
he died from overwork.- — Appleton's Encyc. of Biog., vol. 1, p. 465.

1st marriage: 1398, Theodosia +. 

Col. Burr and his sister, Sarah, were left orphans at an early age, and 
were put under the care of Judge Tapping Reeve of Litchfield, Conn. He 
was prepared to enter Princeton college, of which his father had been Presi- 
dent, at the age of eleven years. On account of his extreme youth, his en- 
trance was deferred until the year 1769, when, as a special favor, he was 
admitted to the Sophomore Class in his fourteenth year. He was graduated 
with distinction in 1772, and began the study of law under Judge Reeve at 
Litchfield. At the first call for troops in 1775, he hastened to join the patriot 
arm\' at Boston, and accompanied Col. Benedict Arnold in his expedition to 
Quebec, from which engagement he returned with a brilliant record, having 
attained the rank of Major. In Jul}', 1777, he was promoted to rank of Lieut.- 



Fifth Generation 65 

Colonel with command of his regiment. He met and defeated the British 
forces at Hackensack and drove them back to Paulus Hook. At Monmouth, 
he enhanced his militar\- fame by brilliant leadership at the head of a brigade. 
At the close of the war, he resumed the study of law and was admitted to the 
bar in 1780. The year 1783 finds him engaged in his profession in New 
York City, where he stood among the leaders of the bar, with no rival but 
Alexander Hamilton. In 1788 he was appointed Attorney-General by Gov- 
ernor Clinton. Three years later he was elected to the U. S. Senate over 
Gen. Philip Schuyler, where he served for the ensuing six years with signal 
ability. He entered the Presidential contest of 1800 and was one of the two 
highest candidates of the successful Republican party for the office of Presi- 
dent of the U. S. By vote of the House of Representatives Thomas Jefferson 
was chosen President and Aaron Burr, Vice-President. Several years later he 
was a candidate for Governor of the State of New York, but was defeated 
by Morgan Lewis. The latter part of his life was clouded by many vicissi- 
tudes, both of fortune and reputation.

"Hezekiah Sturges was conspicuous in the civil and military affairs of 
Fairfield. He was commissioned ensign of the County Militia in 1765, lieu- 
tenant in 1767, and captain in 1771. He was reputed to be a 'brave and 
loyal man.' During the burning of Fairfield by Gen. Tryon, a party of 
British soldiers met in the house of Capt. Sturges, 'partook of a goodly repast 
of baked turkey, chicken and ham, with a quantity of wine' (old record,) and 
in return for their hospitable entertainment, plundered and burned the house. 
The Church of England building, which was on the Millplain green near, 
was ne.xt burned by the same soldiers. Capt. Sturges fought desperately to 
defend his town during the attack of the British. At one time he ordered his 
men and a cannon in front of the Bulkle}' house on Beach lane, the head- 
quarters of Gen. Tryon (except one other, the only house left unburned by

the British,) and giving the family within a few minutes to leave, would 
have demolished the place but for the arrival on the scene of Gen. Silliman. 
"In the spring of 1779-80, Capt. Sturges rebuilt his house, reserving a 
large upper room in it for the 'carrying on' of the Episcopal service. Mr. 
Sayre, the Church of England missionary, was a loyalist, and his conduct dur- 
ing the invasion of the town by the British was voted to be traitorous, and he 
was placed under military arrest and guarded by his old parishioner, Capt. 
Sturges. In 1783 or 1784, a new Episcopal church. Trinity, was built again 
on the Millplain green ; later, this was moved to Southport. On its records 
are the births and deaths in the line of Hezekiah Sturges after the Revolution ; 
earlier, they are in the records of the 1st Congregational Church, Fairfield. 
Capt. Sturges received £817 payment of damages from the General Assembly 
for the destruction of his property in the war. His estate, which was large, 
was distributed September 5, 1804, after the death of his widow, who was 
Abigail Dimon, daughter of Ebenezer and Mary (Burr) Dimon, of Fairfield. 
Capt. Sturges is buried in Burial Hill Cemetery, and well-preserved stones 
record his death in 1792, aged 67, and that of his wife in 1803, aged 71." —

86 Ward Family Genealogy 

'Genesee Woods,' purposing to share with them the privations of pioneer 
life. These brave hearted and truly Christian men carried with them, as they 
left New England, their ancestral, heroic, puritan piety, of which they were 
never for an hour ashamed. When stopping for the night at a tavern or 
farm house they would, with permission cheerfully given, spend an evening 
hour in singing sacred songs, the sound of their voices calling together settlers 
by the score. 'Deacon Ward,' the title he ever bore, would then give a brief, 
earnest, practical exhortation, when all would bow in social worship. It was 
a strange event to many of these emigrants, who, alas, had in too many in- 
stances practically forgotten the religious usages of early life. Reaching their 
place of destination, the father and sons purchased adjoining lands, reclaimed 
them from native wildness, and secured homes of comfort, if not of luxury, 
for themselves and their families. The father was less in public life than 
were the sons, but, without an hour's abatement, held a large place in the 
reverence and affection of all who were favored with his acquaintance and 
friendship." — From Biographical Sketch by Rev. F. DeW. Ward, D.D. 

The following excerpt from a Bergen, Genesee county, newspaper suffi- 
ciently indicates the esteem in which he was held by the community: "Died at 
Bergen, Deacon Levi Ward, aged 92 years, 10 months and 22 days. Three 
children, twenty-three grandchildren and sixty-five great-grandchildren survive 
him ; twentj^-two grandchildren and great-grandchildren had preceded him to 
the grave; making the whole number of his descendants, at the time of his 
death, one hundred and thirteen. He had survived his own and a large part 
of the succeeding generation of his friends and neighbors. As a citizen, a 
friend, a husband and a parent he had performed his public and social duties 
with integrity, fidelity and faithfulness. His death was calm, peaceful and 
triumphant, an appropriate close to such a life."

"Mr. Ward was Supervisor of Eastchester at the time of the beginning 
of the struggle for independence, to which he gave his most hearty and 
valuable support. He was elected a member of the Provincial Congress of 
May, 1775, and in 1777 of the New York Assembly. After the war he was 
Judge of the County, State Senator, Member of Congress, and in 1792 Presi-

dential elector. His early residence was in the historical mansion known as 
'Wards,' which was destroyed in the Revolution. He afterwards resided in 
Mt. Vernon, N. Y."— Scharff, vol. ii, p. 747. 

" 'Ward's House' stood on the site of the residence of the late Judge 
Gifford. It was formerly the property of the late Judge Stephen Ward, a 
very prominent and respected citizen of the town of Eastchester. His house, 
which was on the Tuckahoe road, was the point for a detachment of Revolu- 
tionary troops, dependent upon the lines above, and as such it was attacked 
several times. Upon one occasion the American force, stationed in and 
around it, was attacked by a strong British expedition under Capt. Campbell. 
The American commander was ready to surrender when an unlucky shot was 
fired from one of the windows. Capt. Campbell fell dead. Many Americans 
were slaughtered in revenge and twenty-seven were taken captive. The place 
being again garrisoned, it was decided by the enemy to burn the house. This 
was done in Nov., 1778, the sidings, doors, windows and shutters being trans- 
ported to Kings Bridge, to be used in building barracks for the British troops."

"John Ward was an officer in the Loyal American Regiment, and entered 
the service of the Crown as early as 1776. During the war he was frequently 
in battle. In 1783 the Loyal Americans went to New Brunswick, Canada, 
and when, in the course of that year, the corps was disbanded, Maj. Ward 
settled at St. John as a merchant. Here he made for himself a fine reputa- 
tion, both in public and private life. He filled various public stations, and for 
many years enjoyed the appellation of 'The Father of the City.' At the 
time of his death, he was not only the Senior Magistrate of the city and 
county of St. John, but the oldest merchant and half-pay officer in New 
Brunswick. ]VIr. Ward was a gentleman of noble and venerable appearance. 
He died in the 93d year of his age. His remains were taken to Trinity 
Church, where the impressive funeral service of the Church of England was 
read, and were subsequently interred in the New Burying Ground, followed 
to the grave by one of the largest funeral processions ever seen in the city, in- 
cluding the Mayor, Common Council, Recorder, and a vast concourse of 
other citizens, all anxious to pay the last tribute of respect to the memory 
of one who was intimately associated with the early history of the country."

pal Church held in Philadelphia, Oct. 16, 1786."— Mrs. Schenck's Hist, of

"Commodore Isaac Hull at the age of fourteen chose the sea for his field 
of action, and began his career as a cabin boy on a merchant ship. The vessel 
was wrecked and the Captain was saved by the heroism of his cabin boy, after- 
ward to become so famous in naval history. Hull became commander of a 
ship that sailed to the West Indies, before he was twenty-six years of age. 
He entered the service of the United States Navy as 4th Lieut., Mar. 9, 1798.

Advanced to the grade of 1st Lieut, two years later. First saw active service 
on ship Constitution, 'Old Ironsides.' Admiral Farragut once remarked 
'Isaac Hull was as able a seaman as ever sailed a ship.' May 18, 1804, Hull 
was promoted to rank of Commander. Two years later he became Captain, 
and while in command of the ship Constitution, carried Joel Barlow, a rela- 
tive, on his mission to France as Ambassador. His fame as a naval officer 
rests largely upon his marvellous achievement in defeating the English frigate 
'Guerriere.' For this exploit he was presented with a gold medal by Congress. 
His closing days were spent at his home in Philadelphia, Pa., and there his 
body was laid to rest, a beautiful monument marking his burial place."

"A few miles from Guilford was the old Ward farm, owned by Eli 
Foote's family. This place had been closely associated with the life of earlier 
generations, and was known as 'Nutplains.' This estate was at one time 
the property of Andrew Ward, a son of (Col.) Andrew Ward, and a General 
under Washington in the Revolution. General Ward was prominent in the 
regulation of local affairs. He was a great reader, and it is said that he used 
to come home from the Legislature with one side of his saddle-bags filled with 
books, and the other with nails. General Ward's daughter Diana married 
Abram Chittenden of Guilford, and another daughter Roxanna married Eli 
Foote, a Guilford merchant in trade with the West Indies. He was a man 
of fine presence, charming manners and great cultivation . . ... 

One of Eli Foote's children, Roxanna, married the Rev. L.\inan Beecher. 
In Mr. Beecher's autobiography he describes one of his early visits to Nut- 
plains where he sometimes went in his college vacations with 'Ben Baldwin,' 
who was engaged to 'Betsey Chittenden,' one of General Ward's grand- 
daughters. He found the girls out in the old spinning mill, which was a 
favorite meeting place for all the young people ; there the girls had the best of 
times, reading aloud, talking over their love affairs or receiving their visitors 
while they spun. Mr. Beecher recognized Roxanna's charms the instant 

he saw her Many years after Harriet Beeclier's marriage 

to Professor Stowe she wrote thus of the old days: 'Among my earliest rec- 
ollections are those of a \isit to "Nutplains" immediately after my mother's 
death. I can now remember, at the close of what seemed to me a long day's 
ride, arriving after dark at a lonely little white farmhouse, and being brought 
into a large parlor where a cheerful wood fire was crackling, partly burned 
down into great heavy coals. There was a little tea table set out before the 
fire. After supper I rem.ember Grandma's reading prayers, as was her cus-

After completing a course of classical education at Yale College, under 

President Stiles, and of medical, under Dr. Jonathan Todd, in his native 



142 Ward Family Genealogy 

town of Guilford, Dr. Ward married Mehitabel, youngest daughter of Daniel 
Hand, of Revolutionary fame. He soon after removed, with his young bride, 
to Haddam on the Connecticut River, where he remained for seventeen years,, 
practicing his profession with a skill that secured for him a large place in 
public esteem. As a successful practitioner and a sympathizing friend he still 
lives in the pleasant and grateful memory of that community and of his 
native town. During his residence in Haddam he was selected several times as. 
a delegate to represent the County of Middlesex at the "State Medical 
Society," of which he was an active and influential member. About that time 
the distant "Genesee Country," in Western New York, was arresting public 
attention. And so Dr. Ward, his father, the Deacon, his elder brother, John, 
and the wives and children, together with a few neighbors, determined to 
make the journey . "The year 1807 saw the aged sire, and his two sons with 
their young families settled in Bergen, Genesee county, eighteen miles west of 
Rochester. It was on Saturday when the emigrants arrived at their new 
home in the wilderness. Accustomed when in Connecticut to a regular at- 
tendance upon public worship, the next morning saw them assembled at the 
house of a new settler (fourteen or more in number), prayer was offered by 
the patriarch of the group ; a sermon was read ; and music was led by Dr. 
Ward, long conductor of a choir in his early home." Ten years this man of 
many virtues lived and practiced his profession in Bergen. Then at the age 
of 46, he removed to the village of Rochester, now grown to be a city of 
200,000 inhabitants. He was an important factor in the early growth of the 
city, and interested in nearly every effort out of which have grown the vast 
commercial enterprises of to-day. He held many and important offices, both 
in the church and in municipal affairs, and died full of good works, having^ 
served his day and generation for ninety years.

Dr. J. M. Ward came from the Meigs line, of whom it was said "they 
thought more than they spoke." His father's family moved to Northford, 
Conn., from Killingworth, Conn., when he was an infant, and to Plymouth, 
Conn., when he was twelve years of age. Josiah and his sister Chloe used to 
sing contra together in Plymouth Church, of which their father was Warden. 
Josiah was taught by Bishop Griswold of Plymouth at a select school, and was 
an excellent scholar. He afterwards taught school in Southington and then 
became acquainted with Belinda Carter, whom he afterwards married. From 
Southington Josiah and Belinda's brother studied medicine under Doctor Perci- 
val (father of Dr. James G.). Studies completed, they each took horses and 
rode westward until they came to Fishkill on the Hudson ; then they agreed 
one to go north, the other south. Carter went north to AIban\', was taken ill 
of scarlet fever and died, and his horse was sent back to Southington. Josiah 
Ward was soon sent for to attend Doctor Percival, who was ill of fever. Per- 
cival died and Josiah succeeded to his practice in Kensington, where he re- 
mained till about the year 1819, when he bought out Dr. Hand of Worthing- 
ton. He had a rapidly increasing practice till he succumbed to the "spotted 
fever epidemic" of 1825, with a list of sixty patients in his care, embracing 
several neighboring villages, dying on a wave of prosperity and honor, leaving 
not one enemy.

(2303) HENRY WARD, Penfield, Monroe Co., N. Y. b. Jan. 20, 1782; 
d. Sept. 13, 1864; m. Dec. 14, 1806, Diantha Kilbourne; b. Feb. 15, 1790; 
d. Jan. 8, 1866. 

Mr. Ward was born in Litchfield, Conn., and came to Monroe Co., 
N. Y., in the year 1800 as an assistant clerk with Augustus Griswold in a 
store belonging to Judge John Tryon and Amasa Adams, built in the year 
1799 at the place known as the "Old Landing" at the head of schooner navi- 
gation on the west bank of Irondequoit Creek, in the town of Brighton. He 
left the country in 1803 and returned in Dec, 1812, and in Mar., 1813, was 
employed in Daniel Penfield's land office, where he continued nine years, and 
was acting Postmaster or Agent twenty-five years. His correct business tact, 
together with his peculiar style of writing, gave him a large amount of business 
which was always correctly done, and with the best of satisfaction. The 
books and records kept bj- him as Town Clerk, together with his minutes as 
secretary of Penfield Union Lodge, will justify the above statement. He was 
also the writer of the history of the early settlements of the town of Brighton, 
at "Old Landing" on Irondequoit Creek, beginning with the purchase in 
1796 of two hundred acres of land by Solomon Tryon of Litchfield, Conn. 
His politics were moderate, but firm. He belonged to the old Jackson school 
of Democrats. He was also firm in his religion, being brought up and early 
dedicated in the Protestant Episcopal Church, and was chosen Warden at the 
first organization of Trinity Church in the town of Penfield. He continued 
his residence at the latter place up to 1857, at which time he sold out and 
removed to Rochester, remaining there for three years. The Rev. Henry 
Lockwood writes: "Among the earliest recollections of my own youthful days 
is that of seeing Mr. Ward and his family, as frequent and devout worshippers 
in St. Luke's Church, Rochester." On leaving Rochester, he first resided with 
his son Henry Ward, Jr., at Seneca Falls, N. Y., and lastly with his son-in- 
law, Mr. Richardson, in the town of Victor, Ontario Co., N. Y., where he 
died, as he had lived, in full faith of a glorious resurrection. His whole career 
was a commentary on a Christian life.

At the age of twenty-three Mr. Ward was chosen one of the Assessors 
of East Chester, and two years later he was elected Town Clerk. From 1802- 
1806 was Sheriff of Westchester Co. The succeeding year he took his seat 
as one of the six representatives of the Southern District of New York, in the 
State Senate. In 1809 he was member of the Council of Appointment, which 
at that time controlled the official patronage of the State. In 1814 he was 
elected to the 14th Congress and held the office for one term. In 1821 he 
was member of a Convention to revise the State Constitution, and in 1828 
became Surrogate of Westchester Co. The duties of this important office he 
discharged to general satisfaction, and in 1840 having reached the age of 
seventy years, he retired in obedience to the Constitutional provision.

Mr. Nicholls engaged in the wholesale grocery business at Bridgeport 
in 1825, which he conducted with signal success for about five years, when he 
transferred the same to New York City, where he soon became recognized

with the "Merchant Prince," Moses Taylor, he engaged extensively in the 
importation of staple tropical products. He retired from business in 1868. —

"The maternal great-grandfather of Mr. A. G. Jennings was killed on 
his horse by the British at Ridgefield, Conn., Apr. 27, 1777. His sword is 
now in possession of the subject of this sketch, and his sash and coat are in 
the Trumbull gallery in New Haven, Coun. Mr. Jennings began his career 
in N. York City in 1836, as clerk for his brother-in-law, Mr. J. S. Pierson, 
in the wholesale clothing business; became partner in 1844. In 1867 he 
purchased a small lace factory in Jersey City and gradually increased his 
facilities for conducting this business by new improvements. He visited Eng- 
land in 1870, purchased improved machinery, procured skilled operators, de- 
signers, draughtsmen, etc., and established his business upon a permanent basis. 
His establishment in Brooklyn, the 'Jennings Lace Works,' employed seven 
hundred persons in 1892. Mr. Jennings has been a director of the American 
Silk Ass'n since its formation." (Nat. Encyc. Amer. Biog., p. 235.)

"Edward Ward was the first to conceive the idea of making or giving 
the rotary motion to a rifle bullet by cutting the groove and making the 
"twist" in the barrel of a rifle. He spent about ten years in experimenting 
with it, previous to 1840, and finally perfected a crude wooden machine that 
enabled him to cut the grooves and give the projectile the rotary motion on 
leaving the muzzle of the gun. He never applied for a patent for the idea, 
but contented himself with changing the old smooth bored guns of his neigh- 
bors so that they might have the holiday in visiting the many turkey shooting 
matches then so popular and carry ofi the turkeys with the new-fangled idea 
(so-called). He often used to tell me, when I was a little chap, how he 
would go to many places in Eastern Connecticut with a couple of neighbors 
whose guns he had "twisted" and about the lot of turkeys they would bring 
home." — Letter from his son, Edward Pelatiah Ward, of Deposit, N. Y.

Mr. L. M. Ward lived in Genesee Co., N. Y., until fifteen years of age 
and supplemented a common school education by attending the High School 
and a private academy. The farnily moved from New "V'ork State to Fond-du- 
Lac in the Spring of 1852 and located on a farm just soutli of the city. "Lyman 
worked on the farm with his father and attended the Marr street school under 
Van Ness and Brown and Willoby and Schoolege Academy. It was while 
attending Marr street school that I made his acquaintance. He was a

bright scholar and a leader in debate, the orator of the school. After finish- 
ing his education he began the stud\' of law in the office of David Wood, and 
remained until President Lincoln's call for 75,000 troops. He enlisted for 
three months in Company I, First Wisconsin Infantry, and after serving his 
term, re-enlisted in Company A, Fourteenth Wisconsin Infantry, Oct. 16, 
1861. He was elected captain Nov. 9, 1861, promoted to the rank of major, 
April 18, 1862, and lieutenant-colonel on June 17, 1862, colonel on Jan. 23, 
1863, and finally brevet brigadier-general March 13, 1865. He commanded 
the Second Brigade, Third Division, Seventeenth Army Corps, i\Iarch 9, 
1864; First Brigade, Third Division, Seventeenth Army Corps, Dec. 7, 1864, 
and the Second Brigade, Third Division, Sixteenth Army Corps, April 27, 
1865. He was mustered out of service at Mobile, Ala., Oct. 9, 1865, and 
received his final discharge at Madison, Oct. 28, 1865. He remained at his 
home in Fond du Lac until 1866, when he moved to Benton Harbor, Mich., 
where he lived until he died. Forty-eight years have come and gone since 
Company A of the Fourteenth Wisconsin was organized at Fond du Lac, and 
Lyman M. Ward elected captain, but the loving memory of the past remains 
with us, and has brought us together in reunion. Only a few of Company 
A remain on this side. The youth and enthusiasm we owned are pretty 
well gone, for we have sobered down into old age, and now wear the grey. 
The world loves and remembers the soldier. Tales of the bivouac and camp 
fire have a fascination for the young and old alike. Lyman M. Ward was 
the bravest of soldiers, an able statesman and an honorable man. In battle 
fearless, the magnetic soldier. His ability as a popular orator and his military 
reputation gave him prominence in his adopted State of Michigan. He won, 
as an orator, a reputation on the stump and in the Assembly. His popularity 
as a speaker was not confined to his home State. We of the Fourteenth can 
attest to his ability, and no one could catch more quickly than he, the spirit of 
his audience. At every reunion and camp fire of the Fourteenth he was 
listened to with deep interest. As colonel of the Fourteenth he was worship- 
ped by his officers and men. As commander of a brigade, the same feeling 
existed to a marked degree. He was at all times the soldier's friend, during 
the war and since, whether in camp, on the march, or on the field of battle. 
Since the war his greatest pleasure was in meeting with his old comrades in 
reunion. He will be missed at our meetings." — Tribute from his fellow 
soldiers.

When quite young Mr. Ward came with his father and brothers from 
Haddam, Conn., to Bergen, Genesee County, N. Y., where they resided until 
1818, when they removed to the then village of Rochester. Here Mr. Ward 
continued to reside until his death. He entered upon his business life as a 
merchant in company with his brother, William Harvey Ward. This, how- 
ever, he did not follow long, leaving it to engage with his father in the 
management of the land office of the State of Connecticut School Fund involv- 
ing the care, management, sale, etc., of what was known as the 100,000 acre, 
or Connecticut, tract. At the same time he commenced the insurance busi- 
ness, which he conducted so long and so successfully. His strict business 
habits and his successful management soon gave him an established reputation 
as a capable and reliable financier. He early became the representative of the 
New York Life Insurance and Trust Company and of the Bronson estate, a 
large moneyed estate of New York City, and as such and for the State of 
Connecticut he continued for a long term of years to invest and reinvest large 
sums of money. Although the business mentioned comprised an important 
part of the active work done by Mr. Ward through many years, still it was 
by no means the whole of it. He attended to the management of many 
estates, and was the kind, the safe, the disinterested adviser of thousands from 
whom he received but little or no compensation. To the widow and the 
orphan he ever extended sound advice and liberal assistance. He was, more- 
over, a man of a thoroughly public spirit. He was ever ready to promote 
what seemed for the public good, in a business way, as well as in charitable 
enterprises. At an early day he became secretary of the Monroe County 
Mutual Insurance Company, and continued such during the existence of the 
company, some thirty years. He was a director of the old Rochester City 
Bank during its life, a director of the Bank of Orleans, and a trustee of the 
Monroe County Savings Institution. He was one of the original founders of 
the Rochester Gas Company, and a long time its president. He was a direc- 
tor and president of the House Telegraph Company while it existed ; was a 
director of the Genesee Valley Railroad Company; a director and secretary of 
the board of managers of the Rochester high school, and a manager and for 
one year president of the board of managers of the Western House of Refuge : 
a promoter and president of the Athenceum, and a manager of the Industrial 
School. He served on the building committee in building the court house, 
the poor house and the City Bank buildings. 

Although he did not seek official life his fellow citizens compelled him 
to serve them as supervisor, alderman and finally as mayor of the city, to 
which position he was elected in 1849. It is needless to say that he filled .all 
these positions with marked fidelity and intelligence. 

Notwithstanding his numerous business engagements Mr. Ward always 
found time to do his full share in promoting charitable enterprises. From its 
foundation down to the failure of his health, Mr. Ward was a trustee and 
the president of the Rochester Female Charitable Society. He was a director 
of the City Hospital from its foundation. In short, he aided both by counsel 
and liberal donations almost all worthy works of charity. 



226 Ward Family Genealogy 

In religious matters Mr. Ward was ever an earnest and effective worker. 
He was for many years a trustee of the First Presbyterian Church and 
superintendent of its Sunday School. Later he conceived the project of 
founding a church near his own residence, on the east side of the river. It is 
well known that to his energy and taste and the appropriation of his own 
means is to be attributed the existence of the prosperous church society and 
the beautiful edifice of St. Peter's. From this hallowed place, near to where 
the deceased had so long lived, his remains were taken to their eternal rest. 

In all the business relations which Mr. Ward sustained, his character was 
conspicuous. While his judgment was much sought after and relied upon as 
clear, close, and yet comprehensive, still it may be safely said that the crown- 
ing features of his life were sterling integrity, unsuspected virtue, consistent 
Christianity. He was benevolent because it was consistent with his nature 
and character, not from any of the lower motives nor from mere impulse. A 
man of great self-reliance, he was nevertheless as modest and gentle as a child. 
He was not merely a professor of religion, but he lived the life of the righteous. 
In the lives of such as he Christianity finds and must find its greatest bulwark 
against the scoffing and skeptic spirit of our day and generation. 

In social and domestic life, Mr. Ward shed about him the most cultivated 
and genial influences. He always dispensed a generous but refined hospitality. 
In his family the kindest and most devoted husband and father, he inspired 
the deepest love and the highest respect.

the most of everj- opportunity for self instruction and his industry, together 
with his love of reading, laid the foundation of the liberal education which he 
acquired mainly through his own efforts. 

From 1831 to 1836 he owned, edited and published the "Susquehanna Reg- 
ister," a weekly paper. He gave up the paper in 1836 upon which occasion 
Horace Greeley's "New Yorker," April 9, 1836, says: 

"C. L. Ward, Esq., has withdrawn from the editorial chair of the 
'Susquehanna Register' at Montrose, Pa. He bases his withdrawal on a 
disinclination to political life in its present aspects and under the prevailing 
doctrines of the day. The 'Register' under the auspices of Mr. Ward, has 
held a high rank among the better sort of journals, and we sincerely regret 
the loss which the profession as well as the readers of that paper have sus- 
tained." 

From 1833 to 1836 he held the office of Register of Wills and Recorder 
of Deeds of Susquehanna County, which were the only political offices to 
which he ever aspired or held. In 1837 he was admitted to the bar in Susque- 
hanna County and shortly after that removed to Towanda in Bradford 
County, Pennsylvania, where he lived until his death. 

He became an extensive land owner and was interested in the develop- 
ment of the country through the building of railroads. He was the president 
of the Atlantic & Great Western Railroad during its construction through 
Pennsylvania and through his instrumentalit}' the means for its completion 
were obtained in Europe. 

In politics he was a Jacksonian Democrat. The one diversion which he 
made from the early resolve not to seek or accept political offices was during 
the Presidency of Franklin Pierce. 

In 1853 Col. James Gadsden, United States Minister to Mexico was 
endeavoring to secure a treaty from Mexico to settle a boundary dispute 
arising under the treaty of 1849 and to secure other rights and advantages to 
the United States. Questions arose in the course of the negotiations con- 
cerning which Gadsden had no instructions and he was obliged to delay all 
negotiations until he received instructions from Washington. The President 
called upon Mr. Ward to act as a special emissary, entrusting to him verbal 
instructions to Col. Gadsden, relying upon his ability and integrity rather 
than upon a written dispatch. The only documents which he carried were 
his credentials, copy of which is as follows: 

Department of State, Washington, 
Oct. 22, 1853. 

Hon. James Gadsden, Mexico. 

Sir:— This accredits to you Christopher L. Ward, Esq., who is sent by 
the President as a special messenger fully possessed with his views in regard to 
the negotiations of a new line with Mexico. His verbal communications on 
that subject you will regard as Instructions from this department. 
I am, sir, respectfullv, vour obedient ser\ant, 

W. F. Marcy. 

He was a close personal friend of James Buchanan and during the cam- 
paign for his election was the Chairman of the Pennsylvania State Central 
Committee. 

He was a member of the Episcopal Church and was a vestryman of St. 
Paul's Church in Montrose in 1832 and one of the charter members at the 
organization of Christ Church in Towanda In 1841.

His love of literature and taste for authorship were conspicuous. In 
1845-6, in connection with Henry Booth he published a literary periodical 
in Bradford County, Pennsylvania. He was one of the organizers and the 
first president of the Bradford County Historical Society, elected May 4, 1870. 

He was a man of the most liberal taste, fond of history and literature, 
boasting an extensive acquaintance among the leading men of his time and a 
dispenser of a charming hospitality. His library at the time of his death 
comprised upwards of 10,000 volumes and was said to contain more rare 
works than any other private library in the State of Pennsylvania. This 
library, together with his collection of autographs which was exceedingly 
extensive, became the property of Lafayette College after his death.

The early manhood of Mr. Peter Ward was passed in Pennsjdvania. He 
was at one time clerk of the Pennsylvania Legislature. Removing to New 
York State, he was elected member of Assembly from Steuben Co. In the 
summer of 1832 Peter C. Ward, formerly of New Milford in Susquehanna 
Co., but then a resident of Honesdale, decided to attempt the publication of a 
weekly newspaper in Honesdale. He arranged with Asa G. Dimock of 
Montrose, a practical printer, to become a partner with him in the enterprise. 

In the autumn they issued a prospectus for the publication of a weekly 
newspaper in Honesdale, to be called the Wayne County Herald, the sub- 
scription price to be $2.00. In politics it was to be independent. They pro- 
cured a press and type and on January 2, 1833, published their first number. 

The paper became Democratic and in May, 1833, he sold out to his 
partner, Mr. Dimock, and engaged in business in Bradford Co. Previous to 
selling out they had bought from Mr. Wm. Sasman the Inquirer, then pub- 
lished in Bethany, and thereafter the name of the paper was the "Wayne 
Co. Herald and Bethany Inquirer." Their purchase of the Inquirer included 
the old Rumage press and type. Most of the type being much worn, the\- 
sent to New York to exchange for new type. The office of publication was 
in the south part of the building next north of John F. Roe's store. So long 
as Mr. Ward was connected with the paper, he was its editor and Mr. 
Dimock its printer. He passed the last twelve years of his life in Rochester, 
N. Y., and was buried in Hornell, N. Y.

Captain James H. Ward was the first naval officer killed in the Civil 
War. He received a militarj^ education at Norwich, Vt., and while at the 
school received his warrant as a midshipman in the United States Navy. He 
and Lieutenant Samuel Marcy were the first two assistants at the United 
States Naval Academy at Annapolis, and were present at its organization, in 
1845. Captain Ward was the first commandant of midshipmen at the 
Academy. After various services in different waters, he was summoned to the 
defense of the Potomac, in 1861, by Secretary Gideon Welles, and during an 
engagement at Acquia Creek, June 27, 1861, was hit by a sharpshooter, as he 
stepped forward to take the place of a gunner who had fallen. Captain Ward 
died an hour later. 

The body was brought to New York and thence to Hartford on the 
steamer Granite State. There was an imposing funeral at St. Patrick's 
Church with requiem high mass, after which the body lay in state in the 
court room at the capitol until 4 o'clock. The funeral escort included the 
Light Guard and the Colt Guard, military companies of that time, and there 
was a general display of mourning emblems. Burial was in the Old North 
Cemetery. 

The chapeau, coat and sword of Captain Ward are permanently placed in 
the rooms of the Connecticut Historical Society.

Samuel Ward King took a partial course in medicine at his home and 
on Aug. 5, 1807, received his diploma at Providence. He was cashier of the 
Agricultural Bank at Olneyville, R. I. Family tradition says that he was 
surgeon on board the ships Wasp and Hornet, and was with the latter when 
she captured the' British sloop of war Frohc, off the coast of North Carolina. 
Dr. King was a witness of the fight between the U. S. frigate Chesapeake and 
the British frigate Shannon off Boston Harbor, June, 1813, and attended 
Captain James Lawrence in his last moments. He was elected Governor of 
Rhode Island in 1840 and served two terms. "Few men," said the writer 
of his obituary, "have enjoyed in their day to a greater degree the confidence 
of the public, and few men in their private lives have exhibited greater 
amiabilitv and generous kindness of heart." — Nat. Cyclopedia of Amer. Biog., 
pp. 396-7.

Mr. J. M. Ward was born in the village of Greenbush, Ulster Co., N. Y. 
His father died when he was quite a young lad and he became one of the 
family of his uncle Thomas Currey, who lived on a farm near Peekskill. 
While there, he attended the nearby country school and worked on the 
farm. When sixteen years of age he came to Peekskill and for a number 
of years was on a sloop which sailed on the Hudson River. At a later date 
Mr. Ward opened a butcher market and engaged in business for himself in 
which he continued until the last twelve years of his life, when he retired. 
He held several offices during his lifetime; he was elected Overseer of the 
Poor in 1852 and re-elected at the end of the term. From that time he was 
more or less before the public as a Republican officeholder, being Assessor of 
the town of Cortlandt for two terms, and of the village of Peekskill for 
many years. His last term as town assessor began in 1900 and ended in 
1902. His last term as village assessor ended in March, 1903. "In poli- 
tics Mr. Ward was an enthusiastic Republican ; in character, scrupulously 
honest; in judgment, sound; in thought and conviction, firm; and in speech, 
pure and reverent." In a word, he was a living embodiment of Pope's 
motto: "An honest man is the noblest work of God." After several years of 
precarious health, when he had passed the fourscore mile-stone, being in the 
S9th year of his age, he entered into rest. He was one of the best known of 
Pcekskill's older inhabitants and his had been a familiar face to all.

Mr. Nathaniel Wheeler was the chief organizer of the "Wheeler & Wil- 
son Sewing Machine Company" in Oct., 1853, and was made its general man- 
ager. In 1855 he was elected its president, retaining the office until liis death. 
He was justly regarded as the most active and public-spirited of Bridgeport's 
citizens during a long residence there, and although he never aspired to political 
preferment, was several times chosen to represent Bridgeport in both the upper 
and lower houses of the State Legislature. He was one of the commissioners 
appointed to design and supervise the construction of the State Capitol at 
Hartford ; was a director of the City National Bank ; an incorporator of the 
People's Savings Bank ; vice-president of the Board of Education, and a 
director of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad. — "Sergeant

General Wheeler when a youth was sent to West Point in 1854, and 
at the end of the then five years' course he was graduated. The records of 
that institution indicate that he was not more tlian mediocre in his work. 
But the little Georgian was known as a young man with no end of grit. 
Diminutive as he was he was ever ready to defend himself or any of his 
friends. 

When the break came between the North and South, Wheeler was one of 
the first of the Southern officers in the United States Army to resign his com- 
mission and volunteer his services to the Army of the Confederacy-. He 
entered as colonel of the Nineteenth Alabama Infantry. At the battle of 
Shiloh he was in command of a brigade, and won high praise from his 
superiors for conspicuous gallantry. 

Soon after this historic battle General Wheeler was transferred to the 
cavalry, and early in 1862 he was placed in command of that arm of the 
service under General Braxton Bragg, in the West. In the great Confederate 
charge at the battle of Chickamauga, in 1863, it was General Wheeler who 
led the cavalry. 

In the campaign against Sherman in Georgia, General Wheeler so dis- 
tinguished himself that he was later appointed a Lieutenant-General, and at the 
close of the great conflict he was in command of the cavalry that was operat- 
ing with the forces of General Joseph E. Johnston. 

He was in the battles of Shiloh and Farmington, Miss. ; the fights around 
Corinth, Perryville, Murfreesborough, Chickamauga, the siege of Knoxville, 
Ringgold, Rocky Face, Dalton, Resaca, Cassville, New Hope, battles around 
Kenesaw Mountain, battle of Peach Tree Creek, Decatur, battles around 
Atlanta, siege of Savannah, battles of Averysborough and Bentonville. Be- 
sides being in over 800 skirmishes General Wheeler commanded in more 
than 200 battles, many of which, considering the numbers engaged, were 
among the most severe and successful recorded in the history of cavalry. 

After the close of the war General Wheeler studied law and set to work 
to restore his shattered fortunes. He made his home at Wheeler, Lawrence 
county, Ala., and established law offices at Wheeler and Courtland, where 
he soon built up a lucrative practice. In 1882 he was elected a Member of 
Congress, and was returned at each election after that till the war with 
Spain broke out. 

General Wheeler was 62 years old in the spring of 1898 when this coun- 
try was making hurried preparations for the inevitable war with Spain. He 
was a thin little man with a white beard and a partly bald head. He might 



256 Ward Family Genealogy 

easily have posed for a portrait of a Scottish Covenanter. But he was one 
of the first to offer his services to the countr\ when it became apparent that 
a conflict with Spain could not be avoided. 

General Wheeler was one of the foremost American leaders in the 
campaifj;n at Santiago. When Shafter came to the conclusion, after two days 
of intermittent fighting along the lines of the Spanish earthworks, that a 
retreat might be necessary, it was General Wheeler who stood out against it. 
He was for sailing into the Spaniards with every available man, and his plan 
prevailed. , 

General Wheeler was out well in the front where he could see what 
was going on and direct the fire of his division to the best effect. At last he 
saw the thin line of the enemy begin to waver. The art of making war was 
not new to him, and letting out a whoop that could be heard even above the 
din of battle, he started toward that weakening point. The brave men 
charged up a hill, firing at random. There was no stopping that fierce 
charge ,and the rain of bullets that poured in on the foe. 

At the close of this war he came back with the army that was landed at 
Montauk Point and in the weeks when the camp there was fever stricken he 
rendered heroic service. It was while he was in command there that his 
youngest son, a naval cadet, who was serving on his staff, was drowned while 
bathing in the surf. 

General Wheeler became an officer in tlie regular army after the vic- 
torious campaign in Cuba, and he saw six months' hard service in the 
Philippines. He was a charter member of the Andrew Ward Association and 
one of its vice-presidents; he presided at the annual meeting of the Society 
just before his death.

Mr. Wakcman was born at Greenfield Hill, Conn. He attended the 
public school in his native town which was founded by Pres. White of Yale 
College, who was then the resident pastor. At the age of fourteen he came 
to New York State and commenced teaching school at New Rochelle, subse- 
quently pursuing the same profession at Rochester and Lockport. Although 
too young to vote, he took an active part in the Harrison campaign, stumping 
New York State in the interest of "Tippecanoe." He was a prominent mem-

ber of the Republican Party, a devoted friend of Lincoln and Seward, and 
was instrumental in the movement that resulted in the abolition of slavery. 
He participated in every political campaign from that of the first President 
Harrison to that of his grandson. He entered an academy at Herkimer 
from which he graduated and went to study law in the office of "Capron & 
Lake" at Little Falls. 

In 1849 iVIr. Wakeman came to New York and entered the office of 
Horace Holden, a prominent real estate lawyer. He was admitted to the bar 
and practised law for two or three years, but in 1851 was elected to the 
Assembly from the Fifth district. He took an active part in politics as a Free 
Soil Whig, siding with Greeley, Seward and Thurlow Weed. He removed 
to the Twelfth Ward, and was elected Alderman on the Reform Board, 
which put a stop to foraging on the community by the Aldermen and made 
them regular paid officials. Mr. Wakeman served two terms as Alderman, 
and was chairman of the Judiciary Committee. He then ran for Congress in 
the upper district in 1854, and was elected after a hard struggle by the Free 
Soil Whigs, aided by the Know Nothing Party. He sat in Congress until 
1856 and participated in the exciting controversy over the admission of Kansas 
and the election of Banks as Speaker, supporting Banks, Turnbull and other 
leading anti-slavery men. He was promient in the first convention of the 
Republican Party. In 1851 he engaged in the practice of law and founded the 
firm of Wakeman & Latting, now Wakeman & Campbell. 

Mr. Wakeman was a member of the convention that nominated Lincoln, 
and became a warm adherent of the latter, who appointed him Postmaster of 
New York, which office he occupied during Lincoln's first term. He reorgan- 
ized the Post Office and formed the basis of its present administration, dis- 
playing remarkable executive ability and fitness for the work. He was trans- 
ferred to the Surveyorship as a recognition of his good work as Postmaster, 
and held that office during Lincoln's and Johnson's administrations. 

When the division came between Johnson and the Republican Party 
Abram Wakeman stood by his fast friend Seward, although this policy resulted 
in injury to his political prospects, and soon afterward he abandoned politics 
and devoted himself to law. He originated the project to connect the rail- 
roads on Long Island and make them terminate on the ocean, where he pro- 
posed to found one great watering place, and he was really the founder of 
Manhattan Beach. In the financial troubles of 1873 Mr. Wakeman had to 
abandon these designs, and Austin Corbin reaped the benefit of his plans and 
initial efforts. 

In 1863 he organized a regiment, which he would have followed to the 
field, but at Lincoln's request he remained to check the fire of Rebellion in 
New York. He defended the Post Office when it was attacked by the mob, 
and in revenge they sacked and destroyed his residence and its contents, 
including a valuable library. His eldest son, Harwood, a rising physician, was 
drowned in the Blue Lake, Adirondacks, at the age of twenty-eight years, and 
his wife and daughter Rosamund, a charming girl of eighteen years, perished 
in the fire at the Cambridge Flats, New "^'ork City. He was a member of 
the Union League Club, the American Institute, the Historical Society, and 
many other organizations, and was at one time a member of the Chamber of 
Commerce. He organized the Irving Savings Institution and the Hamilton 
Fire Insurance Co., of whicji he was a director.

Mrs. Stowe at an early age, her mother having died, was placed under 
the care of her grandmother at Guilford, Conn. She continued her education 
at Litchfield Academy. In 1824, when in her 13th j'ear, she went to Hart- 
ford, Conn., to attend the school which had been established there by her 
eldest sister, Catherine, where she remained until the Autumn of 1832, when 
both sisters removed with their father to Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. Beecher 
having been elected president of Lane Theological Sem. After her marriage 
in 1836, Mrs. Stowe frequently visited the slave states, and it was at this 
time she received impressions which led to the preparation of her most famous 
book, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," of which volume nearly 500,000 copies were 
sold in the United States in the five years following its publication. Mrs. 
Stowe published many other volumes, which have been well received.

in 1839 assumed the pastorate at Indianapolis, Ind., and in 1847 came to 
Brooklyn as pastor of Pljmouth Congregational Church, where he remained 
until his death. His first sermon in this field was an arraignment of slavery, 
which he denounced in severest terms. He was noted from the beginning of 
his ministerial career as a brilliant orator and attracted a great and constantly 
increasing congregation. He was also remarkably successful as a public 
lecturer. In 1861 he became editor of the New "V'ork Independent, and in 
1870 of the Christian Advocate. He visited Europe in 1863, where his fame 
as a preacher had preceded him, and delivered a series of memorable addresses 
upon anti-slavery topics which aroused great enthusiasm. \It. Beecher was 
a voluminous writer upon current topics and a greatly esteemed preacher to 
college students. He was the author of many books and tracts. Probably 
the most distinguished pulpit orator of his day.

Brock, Jr. +. 9537, Clara M. +. 

Owing to the sudden death of Eber Brock Ward's mother, the father's 
plan of moving to Kentucky was changed, and he went, with his family, to 
the equally unknown region of Michigan. There Samuel "Ward, his uncle, 
was already laying the foundation of a fortune through his small sailing 
vessels, which carried the commerce of that time and locality. When Eber B. 
arrived at his majority, he was employed by his uncle, and soon sliowing his 
superior business talent, he was taken into partnership. After a few years 
the fleet of sailing vessels was changed and became one of steamers. Between 
■1843 and 1857 the E. B. & S. Ward Line of steamers were twenty-four in 
number, twenty of which they had built in their own shipyard on the St. Clair 
River. These boats were running from Detroit to Buffalo ; to Cleveland ; to 
Chicago ; to Sault St. Marie ; to Duluth, and on the Detroit and St. Clair 
Rivers. The first steamboat to touch the waters of Lake Superior was the 
"Sam Ward," which they carried across the portage on rollers some years be- 
fore the great Sault Canal was built. In 1855, after the death of S. Ward, 
Eber B. turned his attention to iron and built the first iron rolling mill west 
of Pittsburgh, at Wyandotte, twelve miles below Detroit. He followed that 
by another rolling mill in Chicago in 1857, and immediately after by another 
one in Milwaukee; the two latter are now parts of the U. S. Steel Co. 

In the midst of our Civil War he saw the necessity for making our own 
sugar and sent men to Germany and France to learn the methods of manu- 
facture. He could not, however, persuade our farmers to raise the neces.sary 
beets. After that his imagination was stirred in regard to plate glass, which 
we were importing from France and Germany, and he held that America 
shoidd manufacture what she used. After much search a suitable sand was 
found near St. Louis and a factor\- established and the little town which grew 
around it called Crystal City. There, about 1870, the first plate glass \\as 
made in this country. Had he lived longer it would have been a great success. 
His lumber business in northern Michigan was immense and he governed 
all these large industries with the heart of a philanthropist and the wisdom 
of a statesman. He held that "the best philanthropist was he who pro\ ided 
the most labor," and the thousands of men in his employ felt that in liim tlu'\ 
had a staunch friend. By his unceasing energy and large comprehension of the 
possibilities of a great State, he did more than all the other men of his da\- to 
open up the then Northwest to the uses of civilization. An honest man, whose 
word was as good as his bond, he demanded lionesty of those aroimd him.

He was a patriotic man who spent himself (and his money) to aid our country 
in those times of stress when it was yet uncertain whether we should spell 
Nation with a capital N. He was an honorable gentleman, as we of the old 
Puritan blood require our gentlemen to be. He was a hard student ; a hard 
worker, and carried a warm sympathetic heart. He and his sister Emily stood 
heart and soul together during all their days, caring for the helpless and work- 
ing the works of Righteousness.

Mr. Ward was a land and timber inspector in the early history of Michi- 
gan; He continued in this line of business for ten years, and owned an im- 
mense tract of land in the State. His holdings in lumber were so extensive 
that he constructed a standard guage railroad 150 miles long through his own 
timber lands.

Amasa Rust, the subject of this brief sketch, was born in 1823 at Wells, 
Vermont, and like man}- sons of that noted State, was reared upon a barren 
little farm cropped largely with stones, which to till for the necessaries of life 
meant incessant toil and hardship. 

But these early struggles and privations helped only to mould and develop 
in the children of Amasa Rust strong, honest and resolute characters. Their 
lives were filled with useful work and varied activities. 

The parents and their children, consisting of five sons, Aloney, David W., 
Amasa, Ezra and John F., and three daughters, Laura, Esther and Minerva, 
came to ]\Iichigan in pioneer days (1836) and located at Marine City on the 
St. Clair Ri\er, the five sons later moving to Saginaw. 

Beginning the duties of life early, the "Rust boys" as tlie\ were familiarly 
known to business associates, chose the vocation of lumbermen and in time 
became important factors in lumbering and in the manufacture of forest 
products. W^ith strong ties of family feeling, these brothers held closely to 
each other, and were partners through life in many enterprises tliat gave 
employment to men and helped in the growth and development of Michigan. 
Of the five brothers, one, alone, is living, Ezra, full of years but still active 
and devoting much of his time and wealth to public good and civic needs. 

Being one of the elder brothers, Amasa bore his share of responsibility and 
dutj- ; and in the different partnerships, was wise in counsel, clean in methods, 
and a most equitable and generous soul ; a believer in men in all walks and 
conditions of life. Love of family and friends, and confidence in mankind, 
were the virtues that gained him esteem and success. Passing away at three 
score and ten, he left behind him an enviable record in the business world for 
square dealing and probity, and to those who knew him in life, a memory 
appreciated for its gentleness, kindness and democratic spirit.

Like the fall of a great oak in the forest where its broad-spreading 
branches have given shade and shelter to all who came beneath, is the death, 
luU of years, and these years full of love of friends, of staunch, warm- 
hearted Amasa Rust. 

I can say of him, dead, what he would not, living, have permitted to be 
said, that no man in our community carried through life so open a heart and 
so open a hand as he. 

And these virtues were not weakly held, for he had the port and presence 
of a man, with mental grasp and resolution to cope with large affairs, and his 
eye, that deep, peculiar turquoise blue, which melted like a woman's to love 
and to pity, deepened and darkened, and flashed the lightnings of his righteous 
wrath upon the man who would do him or his or humanity a wrong. 

He was a man of deeds, not creeds, and in the largest sense charitable. 
He forgave always the penitent, as well as feeding always the needy. The 
faults of friends, with his broad bookkeeping, he balanced against the qualities 
he liked, and so left to their accounts a credit. 

Losses, serious business losses, he had in middle life, but the well of his 
generosity never ran dry, and the resolute hand which again gathered together 
still scattered bountifully abroad. 

As he walked down the vale of life we, who knew him, could see walking 
on the one side Generosity and on the other Integrity ; and when he rests in 
"Oakwood" those words might well be written with his name upon the me- 
morial stone above him. — Tribute of a Friend.

Concerning Mr. Ezra Rust, a friend writes as follows: 
More than three score and ten years has Mr. Rqst lived, and over 
fifty of them he has spent in Saginaw. For the greater part of that time his 



Eighth Generation 301 

activities in a business way confined him closely to the management of his 
own affairs, but he has arrived at this station in life's journey a successful, 
kindly, generous and broad-gauged man. Success has not distorted his view 
of life nor have advancing years broken down his youthful optimism. He has 
a simplicity and charm of manner that is irresistiijle, the modesty of a school 
girl and the cheerful smile of a mellow humorist. He has buoyancy of spirit 
in abundance, keenest of intellect, loyalty to his home city, kindly regard for 
his fellows, and a ready ear for all sides of all questions, and those who twice 
this week heard him raise his voice at public meetings in favor of a great 
municipal need, came to see the ripened and mellowed character he possesses 
in a way that could not fail to make more firm the bonds of esteem and devo- 
tion that already attach Mr. Rust to those who have known him best. 

It is more often, and sadly too, the rule to let just appreciation of 
worthy citizens remain unspoken until the\' are no more. Better is it to carry 
flowers to the living and to pay just tribute and appreciation to men of the 
sterling worth and attainments of mind and well rounded development of 
heart and nature, such as characterize Mr. Rust, in the days when they are 
bending their energies to improve the conditions of those about them and 
with whom they are in daily contact. It is the fond hope of those who 
know Mr. Rust that he will be spared many years in which to continue his 
benevolence and kindly work.

Edward Joshua; b. Mar. 9, 1880; m. June 4, 1908, Laura Elvira Fair- 
child, Silver Creek, N. Y. ; b. Apr. 26, 1871 ; dau. of Orrin Albertus and 
Martha Harriet (Peck) Fairchild. 

Dr. Henry Ward is a grad. Hamilton Col., Class of 1862, and of Auburn 
Theological Sem., 1865; served two years as head of Good Templars, Odd 
Fellow, Scottish Rite Mason ; Grand Chaplain of Masonic Grand Lodge of 
New York; Pastor at Minneapolis, Minn., 1865-7; since 1867 Pastor of 
East Side Presbyterian Church in Buffalo, N. Y. 

Mr. Edward J. Ward graduated from the public grade and high schools 
in Buffalo, and then entered Hamilton College. Here he came into promi- 
nence first in athletics, playing in every game of football on the 'Varsity 
throughout his course and establishing records in physical strength tests, some 
of which have not 3et been broken. He also went in for track athletics with 
the weights. Later he took honors in debating and public speaking, winning 
the Clark prize, the highest honor at Hamilton, in original oratory. He was 
president of his class throughout his course and served on the editorial staff 
of every one of the Hamilton College publications. In spite of the large 
amount of time devoted to other activities than study, ]\Ir. Ward left a record 
for scholarship which brought him four years later an invitation to join the 
faculty of Hamilton. 

After graduation from Plamilton, \lr. Ward entered Auburn Theological 
'Seminary and spent three years in study there. At the end of this time and 
before taking his position as a pastor, he took a "post-graduate course in practi- 
cal sociology," traveling over the country investigating political, social and 
industrial conditions at first hand. 

In the fall of 1905 Mr. Ward was ordained as a Presbyterian minister, 
being, perhaps the first man to be so ordained without assenting to the pre- 
scribed questions of the church, and was installed as the pastor of the First 
Presbyterian Church of Sihcr Creek, a little town on the shore of Lake 
Erie. 

The year at Silver Creek was eventful. It began with a successful cam- 
paign for no-license that was led by Mr. Ward and dried up the town for the 
first time in its history. The feature of the year, however, was the establish- 
ment of a large men's club which used the Presbyterian manse as its head- 
quarters. Wrestling mat, pool and billiard tables and other clubhouse furnish- 
ings taking the place of the usual furnishings of a parsonage. 

A little later an invitation came to J\Ir. Ward to teach at Hamilton Col- 
lege. He remained there for a year. At the end of the year lie left Hamilton 
to accept the position of supervisor of social centers and playgrounds in 
Rochester, N. Y. 

Mr. Ward's career in the city of Rochester is well known. In addition 
to establishing a movement which has become famous not only throughout this 
country, but abroad, he has found time to found and organize the City Lunch 
Club, which he hopes may grow into a great municipal organization. 

He has been for over a year a member of the Board of Directors 
of the Playground Association of America. He has also recently been ap-

Mr. C. O. Ward studied two years at Oberlin College, but lack of 
means compelled him to leave before graduation. He formed a partnership 
with his wife's brother, Edwin G. Owen, for the manufacture of wagon hubs 
at Meyersburg, Pa., for which he himself invented and constructed the ma- 
chinery. The business was later sold to the Hotchkiss Manufacturing Co. of 
Addison, N. Y., and Mr. Ward removed thither to become manager of that 
branch of the business. During the Civil War he was machinist in the 
Brooklyn Navy Yard. After teaching for a number of years, he became 
interested in the labor question. With his knowledge of modern languages 
he was enabled to study the works of the great socialists abroad, and he em- 
bodied his own ideas in a book entitled "A Labor Catechism of Political Econ- 
omy," which he printed himself. It met with a wide sale, and Mr. Ward 
soon found his services in demand as a lecturer. Having attracted the atten- 
tion of Charles A. Dana, Henry Ward Beecher and Horace Greeley, he went 
to Europe in 1868 as correspondent of the New York "Sun" and of the "Wit- 
ness," and contributed a series of letters entitled "A Mechanic Abroad" to the 
"Sun," and "A Journey on Foot Through the Papal States" to the "Witness." 
A second trip to Europe was made in 1869 as a correspondent for the New 
York "Tribune." In 1880 he established a printing business in New York, and 
soon afterwards became publisher of the "Voice," a Socialist newspaper. In 
1884 he accepted a position in the Geological Survey in Washington. He after- 
wards became a special agent of the Bureau of Labor for one year and was then 
appointed its translator and librarian, meanwhile devoting himself to collecting 
data for his most important book," The Ancient Lowly : a History of the Ancient 
Working People From the Earliest Known Times to the Adoption of Chris- 
tianity by Constantine" (Vol. 1. "Irascibility and Concupiscence," 1889; Vol. 
II. "Origins of Socialism," 1901). On account of the radical views expressed 
in this work he was again unable to find a publisher, and it was printed under 
his own supervision, much of the work being done by his own hand. Con- 
taining a mass of information culled from the inscriptions dug up during the 
last half century, which revealed the customs and social and industrial organi- 
zations of the ancient tradesmen, this work was the first contribution to this 
subject in the English language and created great interest. He was also the 
author of "Our Tragedy," a dramatic poem (1880), and "The Equilibration 
of Human Aptitudes and Powers of Adaptation" (1893). — From National 
Cyclopaedia.

Mr. Henry J. Ward was a native of New York State and was one 
of the argonauts who crossed the plains in 1849. The party accompanying 
him hailed from Illinois and underwent many vicissitudes on their journey to 
the Golden West. The members of this company parted at Salt Lake City, 
one portion, of which Mr. Ward was a member going direct to Los Angeles. 
The remainder did not arrive until almost a year later, its members losing 
their bearings for many weeks in Death Valley. From Los Angeles the 
pioneer journeyed north to Sacramento and to the gold diggings along the 
Feather River. 

In the course of time, he established the Central Hotel, a famous half- 
way hostelry between Marysville and Oroville in the flush days of the placer 
diggings. Later he moved to Alpine County, where he served as County 
Assessor and conducted a hotel and livery stable. He next went to Mendocino 
County, and remained at Cloverdale for fifteen years, being in the hotel 
business at that place. For eight years he was in the same business at Tiburon, 
and in 1891 arrived at San Jose. Mr. Ward was for forty years a member 
of the I. O. O. F., having been a charter member of the Ukiah Lodge of Odd 
Fellows, in which Lodge he was a Past Grand. He was also a Past Chief 
Patriarch in San Jose Encampment; a member of "Stella Rebecca," and also a 
member of the Santa Clara County Pioneer Society.

W. S. Ward again took up his studies, entering Williston Seminary at East 
Hampden, Mass., in the Class of 1866. He entered the Class of 1869, 
Princeton Univ., and left before graduation to become a special student in the 
Columbia College School of Mines. Finishing this latter course, he began 
active work as directing chemist for the Rumford Chemical Works at Sekonk, 
R. I. From here he received an appointment as Assayer in the U. S. Assay 
Office in New York, where he remained ten years. While there, he was 
editor of the "Technologist," scientific editor of Appleton's Journal and a 
contributor to the American Encyclopedia under the editorship of Messrs. 
Dana and Ripley. In 1889 he was appointed a Commissioner from the State 
of Colorado to the Paris Exposition, and served as vice-president of Jury No. 
49. In 1892 he was appointed Director in Chief of the Mining and Mineral 
Exhibit of Colorado, at the Chicago Exposition and collected and arranged 
that exhibit, which secured for the State very honorable recognition. In 1893 
he was made a Doctor of Science by Princeton University. He was after- 
wards appointed Assistant Director of the Department of Mines and IVIetal- 
lurgy at the Paris Exposition of 1900. In this capacity he had much to do with 
the collection of the American Mineral and Metallurgical Exhibit and its in- 
stallation at Paris. When in that city, though acting as Assistant Director of 
Mining and Metallurgy, he was assigned as a member of Jury No. 72 on Cera- 
mics. This, as in the previous Paris exposition, gave him abundant opportunity 
for familiarizing himself with exposition methods. As a personal recognition of 
his services in Paris, he received a gold medal as Assistant Director of the De- 
partment of Mining and Metallurgy and was named for the honorable appoint- 
ment of "Officer de L'Instruction Publique." When in Paris Dr. Ward was 
appointed Field Assistant for the Division of Mining and Mineral Resources 
in the U. S. Geological Survey, with headquarters in Denver, Col., and was 
engaged in obtaining statistical and general information regarding the mines 
and minerals of the Rocky Mountain regions, when appointed Field Director 
of the Department of Mines and Metallurgy at the St. Louis Exposition. 
After his return from Chicago in 1903, Dr. Ward acted as Chief of the 
Mining Bureau of the Colorado & Southern Railway. In 1908 he was made 
Director of the Art and Mineral Sections of the Colorado Museum of Natural 
History, located at the City Park, Denver, Col., which position he still holds. 
During his life, he has been honored by membership in a number of scientific 
societies, including the American Geographical Society, the New York Society 
of Natural History, the Oxford Scientific Society of Oxford, Eng., the Ameri- 
can Institute of Mining Engineers and others. He is at the present time a 
Director of the Colorado State Historical Society and a member of the 
University Club.

Mr. Chas. Seabury Ward's mother was the daughter of the Rev. Samuel 
Seabury, D. D., who was directly descended from Bishop Seabury, the first 
Episcopal Bishop in America. He passed his early days in IVIichigan, Florida 
and New Jersey, in the parishes successively held by his father. At the age 
of fourteen he lost his father, and the remainder of his youth was spent in 
charge of his aunt, Mrs. Keziah ^Veeks of New York City. During his 
school days the young man was full of activity. He had an absorbing interest 
in everything electrical, and mastered all that related to the commercial appli- 
cation of electricity. He began his business education in New York City. 
Here his keen insight, close application and unfailing energy indicated the 
success which soon followed. He acquired experience in various lines, includ- 
ing the railroad business. Then came an opportunity to manufacture electrical 
supplies, and to follow out his 5'outhful ambitions. This occupied him for 
several years. 

While still in his twenties, Mr. Ward entered Wall Street, where he 
took up his last and most important work as a member of the brokerage firm 
of "Schalk & Ward." In this position his business faculties and his winning 
personality counted in the strenuous daily life of the great financial center. 

During the last few years of his life, Mr. Ward retired from the more 
active position which he first occupied with his firm, and devoted himself to 
other congenial pursuits. He acquired a stable of fine horses in which he took 
the greatest pride. He was an accomplished "whip" and enjoyed nothing 
better than to coach about the fine roads of New Jersey. 

In these later years he also found much pleasure in travel and he spent 
a large part of his time away from home. Within the last two years, he 
became a devotee of motoring and this was the cause of his death. 

Those who were more than casually acquainted with the man, who really 
knew him, have without exception, looked upon him as unusual in many ways. 
He certainly had a distinctive character and was of marked independence. 
He was also possessed of more or less intuition which enabled him to unerr- 
ingly measure and "size up" men and things. His keenness in this respect 
has been often remarked. 

Mr. Ward also had an individual way of expressing himself. His style, 
pointed, but suggestive of humor in every word, always lingered with those 
who might have met him but once. 

At the time of his death Mr. Ward was the efficient chairman of the 
Executive Committee of the Andrew Ward Association.

and Cornelia (Phalen) Isbell. 

In his boyhood Mr. Ward attended the local public schools and after leav- 
ing school went to work in a satinette mill owned by William DeForest and 
Company. From there he went to Litchfield County where for 18 months he 
was in the employ of a wagon maker, learning the trade, which he thereafter 
followed for several years in Naugatuck and New Haven, remaining in tlie 
last named city from the autumn of 1849 to 1864. During this time he 
managed, through industry, assiduity and economy to accumulate sufficient 
capital to enable him to embark in business on his own account, and went on a 
prospecting tour to Colorado, where he remained 22 months. In 1866 he 
returned to Naugatuck and formed a partnership with his brother, Lauren 
Ward, for the manufacture of curtain rings and other small wares of brass. 
The business proved profitable, but was discontinued after the death of Lauren 
Ward, in 1898. The partnership between the two brothers existed for 32 
years. 

Mr. Ward was president of the Naugatuck Savings Bank and also presi- 
dent of the Naugatuck Water Company. He was one of the commissioners of 
the Israel Putnam Memorial Camp Grounds. For more than 20 years he 
was a member of the Republican town committee and during the greater part 
of that time was its chairman. 

He was a member of the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American 
Revolution. He Mas prominently identified with the restoration of the ancient 
cemetery, which was rapidly going to decay and was one of the incorporators 
of the Grove Cemetery Association. 

He always took a great interest in borough afTairs and in matters of local 
history he was an acknowledged authority. He possessed a remarkable mem- 
ory and was thoroughly familiar with the town's oldest landmarks. In his 
archives he had scores of ancient deeds, and the genealogy of the old families 
of New Haven County was an open book to him. Lawyers frequently con- 
sulted him as an antiquarian. A few years ago he published a histor\' of the 
district schools of Naugatuck and for some time before he was taken sick was 
engaged in the preparation of a history of Naugatuck. The gavel used In 
calling the meetings of the board of wardens and burgesses to order, was the

gift of Mr. Ward to the borough. It was made out of mud-sills of the first 
bridge built across the Naugatuck River in this town. 

In the death of Mr. Ward, Naugatuck lost one of its best citizens and 
although not unexpected, the news that he had passed away was received 
with sorrow by his many friends. Mr. Ward died in the same house in which 
he was born.

Mr. Moseley was born at Sullivan, Maine, where his parents had rcnio\ed 



Ninth Generation 359 

from Southbur}', Conn., in 1825. His education was obtained at the district 
and high schools of his native town, which in those days were quite primitive. 
In his early years he assisted his father in his business of carrying on a country 
store dealing in lumber and granite and building vessels until 1852 when he 
removed to Boston, obtaining employment in the offices of various mercantile 
firms until 1860 when his father, having removed to Boston, took him as a 
partner and established the lumber commission and contracting business under 
the firm name of W. G. Moseley & Co. This partnership continued until 
1864, when it was dissolved, and he entered a new partnership formed by his 
father-in-law under the firm name of Aug. B. Perry & Co., for the carrying 
on of the wholesale grocery and shipping business. In 1867 the grocery busi- 
ness was given up and the firm gave their entire attention to the shipping busi- 
ness, owning, fitting and managing \'essels, and at one time had quite a large 
fleet of vessels employed in general business, man)' of them being in the West 
India and South and Central American trade. This partnership continued 
until 1887, when the senior partner died and the firm was dissolved and he 
continued the business for about fifteen years ; since that time he has been 
practically out of business. 

His father-in-law. Col. Perry, was of Connecticut ancestry, having been 
born in Oxford, Conn., in 1803; they had two children born in Boston, Caro- 
line Augusta and Helen Graham. He was liberal in his religious views, having 
_always attended the Universalist or Unitarian Church ; his pastors have 
been Dr. A. A. Minor, Rev. Theodore Parker, Dr. James Freeman Clark and 
Dr. Edward Everett Hale, whose church he has attended for over twenty 
years, and still attends. In politics he has always been a Republican ; he 
became a member of that party at its formation and has voted for every Re- 
publican President; has taken a strong interest in its policies; and has for a 
number of years been a Delegate to its State Conventions. 

He is a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, of the 
Society of Colonial Wars, of the Society of Sons of the American Revolution, 
of the Boston Marine Society, of the Boston Chamber of Commerce and other 
social and business organizations. His descent is from purely New England 
ancestry, largely of Puritan and Pilgrim stock.

Rev. Charles Edward Stowe is the youngest child of Harriet Beecher 
and Calvin Ellis Stowe, and was born in Brunswick, Maine, July 8, 1850. 

He early developed a fondness for the sea, and made a number of voy- 
ages to various parts of the world, following a sailor's life for four years. 

At the age of nineteen, he abandoned the sea and fitted for Harvard 
College, from which institution he was graduated in 1875. The next three 
years were spent in travel and in study at the universities of Bonn and Heidel- 
berg in Germany. Here Mr. Stowe made a special stud^- of the history of 
philosopliy and of literature. He has always been fond of adventure, and had 
exciting experiences among the fishermen and lumbermen of Maine ; in 
wrecking vessels on the Florida Reefs; among the Indians of the Everglades, 
and the spongers of the Bahama Banks. In 1898, Mr. Stowe went abroad 
a second time, for three years, and devoted his time to travel and study. 

He is the author of a "Life of Harriet Beecher Stowe," and stories, 
sketches, and poems that have appeared in various publications.
