INTRODUCTION 

The  Morris  family  traces  back  to  the  time  of  Elthelstan  and 
Alfred,  who  reigned  in  England  in  the  ninth  and  tenth  centuries. 
Maurice,  Morys,  and  Morres  are  names  found  in  the  records 
of  the  time;  have  been  compounded  with  the  prefixes  Fitz,  as 
Fitzmorris,  Clan,  Mount,  De,  &c.  The  name  is  supposed  to  be 
of  Welsh  origin,  as  Maur  Rwyce  and  Mawr  Rhys,  meaning 
Mawr,  war ;  Rhys,  rushing  —  rushing  to  war  — ■  warlike. 

Thomas  Morris  was  a  shipbuilder  and  a  Puritan,  who  left 
England  with  other  pilgrims  in  the  year  of  Hampden's  resis- 
tance to  the  arbitrary  exactions  of  Charles,  the  First.  At  least 
two  of  the  Morris  family  had  fallen  in  martyrdom  in  the  reign 
of  "  Bloody  Queen  Mary,"  and  the  Morris  name  may  be  found 
on  the  pages  of  history  during  the  parliamentary  struggles  with 
Charles  the  First,  and  as  soldiers  under  Cromwell. 

Thomas  Morris  arrived  in  Boston  June  26,  1637.  He  took 
sail  with  a  party  of  other  Londoners  and  landed  at  Quinnipiac, 
now  New  Haven,  March  30,  1638,  arriving  at  their  destination 
about  the  middle  of  April  of  that  year.  He  purchased  a  tract 
of  land  near  New  Haven  on  the  i6th  of  March,  1671,  on  ac- 
count of  its  timber.  This  land  has  ever  since  been  known  as 
Morristown.  The  estate  descended  from  Thomas  to  his  son 
Eleazer,  who  gave  it  to  his  son  John,  who  in  turn,  having  no 
children,  gave  it  to  his  nephew  Amos,  one  of  the  sons  of  his 
brother  James.  Although  held  in  the  family,  the  property  had 
not  been  occupied  up  to  this  time;  Amos  was  the  first  proprie- 
tor actually  residing  upon  the  land  and  one  of  his  descendants 
has  ever  since  occupied  it.

EARLIEST  KNOWN  RECORD  OF  THE  MORRIS 
FAMILY 

Under  the  entry  "  Morrice  of  Betshanger  House,  County  of  Kent," 
Burke  in  his  "  Commoners,"  Vol.  Ill,  p.  232,  says :  — 

"  The  family  of  Morrice  [Morris]  is  of  great  antiquity,  and  can  be 
traced  in  lineal  descent  from  Athelstan  Glodrydd,  Prince  of  Ferlex, 
betwixt  Wye  and  Severn,  who  sprung  from  the  old  Princes  of  Powys, 
and  who  through  his  mother,  Rheingar,  daughter  and  heir  of  Grono 
ap  Tudor  Trevor,  was  eighth  in  a  direct  line  from  Caradoc  Vriechfras, 
Lord  of  Hereford,  one  of  the  knights  of  King  Arthur's  Round  Table 
(540).  Athelstan  Glodrydd  was  godson  of  Athelstan,  King  of  England 
(924),  and  founded  the  fourth  royal  tribe  of  Wales.  He  married  Gwladys, 
daughter  and  heir  of  Rhij,  Lord  of  Pegain,  and  was  father  of  Cadwgan 
ap  Elystan,  who  married  Elen,  daughter  of  Brochwel,  Lord  of  Powis, 
and  had  a  son  Hoedliw  ap  Cadwgan,  Lord  of  Radnor,  Prince  of  Ferlex." 

From  Lewys  Dwnn's  "  Heraldic  Visitations  of  Wales,  edited  by  Sir 
Samuel  R.  Meyrick,"  Vol.  1,  p.  297-98,  and  other  sources,  the  following 
line  of  descent  from  Teon,  or  Theonus  (also  called  Theanus),  Arch- 
bishop of  Gloucester  (542),  translated  to  London  in  553,  and  driven  back 
to  Armorica  in  558,  is  made  out. 

1.  Teon,   himself  descended   from   Beli   Mawr,   King   of   all    England 
and  Wales,  had  son.

of  Morgan  Mynvawr,  King  of  Glamorgan  (872).  Reigned  from  893  to 
loor,  when  he  died  aged  129  years.     (Gildas,  Welch  Chronicle.) 

16.  Ivor,*  son  of  Severus,  married  Isabel,  daughter  of  Tryffin,  son  of 
Cadell  Deyrnllyg,  King  of  Powys. 

17.  Cyhelyn,  son  of  Ivor,  married  Rheingar,  daughter  of  Gronwy,  son 
of  Tudor  Trevor  by  Gwladus,  daughter  of  Howel  Dda   (d.  948),  King 

*  As  Cadell  Deyrnllyg  lived  in  the  sixth  century,  it  is  evident  that  several  gen- 
erations are  here  omitted.      (Meyrick.)

2.  Roger,  born  Jan.  28,  1727,  Lt.  Col.  and  King's  Councellor,  N.  Y., 
married  Mary,  daughter  of  Frederick  Phillipse,  a  beautiful  brunette.  She 
was  the  original  of  Cooper's  heroine  in  "  The  Spy  "  and  was  long  said  to 
be  one  of  George  Washington's  loves,  but  the  story  that  she  rejected  him 
is  not  true.  Five  years  after  meeting  Washington  she  married  Roger 
Morris,  with  whom  she  lived  in  what  was  afterwards  Washington's  head- 
quarters and  the  house  and  her  property  were  confiscated  at  the  opening 
of  the  Revolution  and  she  went  to  England.  Her  surviving  children, 
being  free  according  to  the  ruling  of  the  English  Attorney  General,  sold 
their  right  to  John  Jacob  Astor  for  twenty  thousand  dollars  and  the 
British  government  paid  $17,000  more  for  themselves. 

By  another  line  of  descent  we  have   from  No.  33,  Rees,  son  of  levan

that  he  sat  in  pew  No.  29  of  St.  Paul's  Church,  Norwalk,  "  with  his  well 
demeanored  household  beside  him."  "  The  picture  of  Hezekiah  Jarvis, 
prayer-book  in  hand,  leading  his  family  on  the  Lord's  day  to  the  sanctu- 
ary, recalls  the  custom  of  the  English  squire  of  a  former  period,  carry- 
ing the  same  large  sized  volume  in  one  hand,  as  emerging  from  the 
house  he  early  started  on  Sunday  morning  for  the  parish  church." 

The  "  Jarvis  Genealogy,"  page  26,  says,  "  he  was  a  devoted  and  honored 
member  of  the  church,  having  been  elected  to  office  in  the  same  April  6, 
1781,  and  continued  to  be  so  elected  for  a  period  of  fifty-four  years,  thirty 
of  which  he  was  elected  and  served  as  warden.  At  Easter,  1835,  he  de- 
clined a  re-election  on  account  of  his  advanced  age  and  thus  ended  his 
long  term  of  usefulness  as  an  officer  of  the  church."  "  His  youngest 
son  (by  his  second  wife),  a  graduate  of  Union  College,  entered  the  min- 
istry of  the  church."

Capt.  John   Morris,   ist,   son  of  Thomas   and   Elizabeth   Morris,  born 

March  8,  1646,  died  December  10,  1711,  married,  first  Anna ,  who  died 

December  4,  1664.  He  married,  second,  Elisabeth  Lyne  Lampson,  March 
29,  1665.  She  was  a  daughter  of  -Richard  Harrison,  of  West  Kerby, 
Cheshire  County,  Conn.,  and  widow  of  John  Lyne  and  the  second  wife 
of  John  Lampson.  In  1668,  John  Morris,  ist,  and  Elizabeth  Morris,  late 
of  New  Haven,  were  appointed  guardians  of  Hopistill  Lyne,  daughter  of 
John  Lyne,  first  husband  of  Mrs.  Morris. 

Elizabeth  Morris,  wife  of  Thomas  Morris,  survived  her  husband,  and 
his  eldest  son  and  heir,  Capt.  John  Morris,  ist,  is  on  record  as  being 
satisfied  with  the  disposal  his  mother  made  of  the  estate.  His  father's 
plot  of  land  as  originally  drawn  in  the  allotment  in  the  town  of  Passaic 
was  No.  31  by  an  old  map.  This  farm  lot  appears  as  situated  at  the 
corner  of  Orange  and  High  Streets  on  a  later  map  made  about  1800. 
This  lot  bears  another  name  so  that  it  must  have  exchanged  hands  be- 
fore that  date. 

Under  date  of  April  27,  1694,  Capt.  John  Morris  received  a  patent  for 
120  acres  of  land  and  later  about  100  more,  "on  the  bend  of  the  Third 
River  "  in  Watserson,  afterwards  called  Bloomfield.  This  "  Morris  Plan- 
tation "  latter  became  known  as  "  Morris  Mills,"  Stephen  Morris,  son 
of  Capt.  John,  having  established  there  a  saw  mill  and  grist  mill. 

John  Morris,  ist,  married,  third,  Hannah  Bishop,  August  12,  1669,  died 
January  12,  1710.  She  was  a  daughter  of  Deputy  Governor  James  Bishop, 
of  New  Haven,  Conn.

OBITUARY 

"  Died,  at  Bloomfield,  N.  J.,  January  31,  1859,  Stephen  Morris,  aged 
82  years.  The  following  note,  placed  in  the  hands  of  the  pastor-elect  of 
the  Presbyterian  church,  as  he  was  proceeding  to  the  funeral,  and  by  him 
communicated  as  a  part  of  his  discourse,  presents  his  character  very 
justly: 

"Rev.  Mr.  Nezvton. 

"  Dear  Sir  :  The  singular  providence  which  calls  you,  a  stranger,  to 
officiate  this  morning  at  the  obsequies  of  a  patriarch  of  our  community, 
may  justify  one  who  from  his  childhood  has  known  the  deceased  to 
introduce  you  briefly  to  his  character.  Our  aged  friend  was  a  native  of 
Bloomfield  and  not  only  widely  known,  but  was  perhaps  more  extensively 
regarded  with  feelings  of  affectionate  interest  than  any  man  who  has 
ever  lived  amongst  us.  The  deceased  was,  forty  years  ago,  one  of  the 
most  public  characters  in  our  community.  No  person  then  in  Bloomfield, 
whether  man,  or  woman,  or  child,  but  knew  Stephen  Morris ;  and  to 
know  him  was  to  feel  that  if  no  one  else  would  feel  kindly  toward  them, 
or  do  them  a  favor,  he  would.  His  uniform  urbanity,  sympathy  and 
obliging  disposition,  gave  him  a  place  in  public  esteem  which  he  has 
ever  held  and  which  I  am  sure  will  bring  very  many  to-day  to  pay  their 
last  respects  to  his  memory,  with  a  depth  of  interest  which  will  make  a 
green  grave  for  his  remains.  The  blessing  of  many  is  upon  him.  His 
pastor,  his  poor  or  unfortunate  neighbors,  his  employees,  can  each  refer 
to  many  tokens  of  his  benevolence  and  sympathy.  He  has  long  been  a 
follower  of  the  Saviour  and  now  doubtless  has  gone  to  realize  the  reward 
pledged  to  him  who  illustrated  the  genius  of  the  gospel,  in  kindness  to 
others  and  interest  in  their  welfare.  Hallowed  and  precious  will  ever  be 
the  memory  of  our  dear  old  friend  whom  we  are  called  this  day  to  con- 
sign to  the  tomb! 

"  An  examination  of  his  papers  brings  to  light  an  interesting  docu- 
ment not  known  by  his  family  to  have  been  in  existence,  and  the  like 
of  which  is  a  rarity,  even  in  historical  collections.  The  original  grant  of 
land   from  the   proprietors  of  East  Jersey,  in  the   reign   of  William  H,

OBITUARY 

Mr.  Charles  B.  Morris  was  born  in  Montclair,  October  14,  1836.  He 
was  the  son  of  William  S.  Morris,  who  was  a  man  of  affairs  in  his 
time  and  established  the  first  hardware  business  here.  He  was  also  a 
factor  in  giving  Montclair,  or  West  Bloomfield,  as  this  place  was  then 
known,  needed  railroad  facilities  by  working  for  the  extension  of  the 
Bloomfield  branch  of  the  Morris  and  Essex  Railroad. 

Mr.  Morris  attended  the  public  schools  of  this  place  and  then  entered 
Princeton  University,  from  which  he  graduated  with  the  degree  of  civil 
engineer  in  1859.  Many  tracts  of  land  were  surveyed  by  him  in  this 
vicinity  with  an  accuracy  which  was  never  questioned. 

In  1869,  ten  years  after  he  graduated  from  Princeton,  he  was  elected 
Justice  of  the  Peace.  He  was  a  student  of  the  law  and  the  knowledge 
thus  gained  fitted  him  admirably  for  the  office.  Term  after  term  he 
was  reelected  until  failing  health  admonished  him  to  retire.  The  office 
of  Justice  of  the  Peace  in  the  early  days  of  Montclair  was  no  less 
important  than  it  is  to-day.  With  the  help  of  but  a  limited  constabulary, 
Mr.  Morris  administered  the  law  and  preserved  good  order  at  all  times. 
Evil  doers  feared  him  more  than  they  did  the  courts  in  Newark,  but  at 
the  same  time  he  was  a  friend  to  the  unfortunate,  and  by  his  good 
advice  and  counsel  kept  many  a  man  who  committed  his  first  offense  from 
going  to  prison. 

Mr.  Morris  was  a  conservative  man  and  acted  with  a  caution  in  his 
dealings  with  all  who  came  before  him.  By  rare  tact  he  was  instru- 
mental in  bringing  men  together  and  settling  their  differences  without 
the  aid  of  the  law.  Every  trust  reposed  in  him  was  carefully  guarded 
and  accounted  for.  His  personal  integrity  was  at  all  times  a  guarantee 
of  the  genuineness  of  any  document  that  bore  his  signature,  and  it 
passed  current  upon  its  face  with  public  officials  and  the  justices  of  the 
higher  courts. 

Few  men  were  more  active  in  founding  the  Y.  M.  C.  A.  in  its  earlier 
period.  He  was  on  the  State  Executive  Committee,  and  was  a  con- 
sistent member  of  the  First  Presbyterian  Church,  and  later  of  Trinity 
Church. 

Politically,  Mr.  Morris  was  a  Republican,  interested  in  the  practical 
workings  of  the  party  as  well  as  its  principles.  He  served  for  three 
years  as  assessor,  and  also  held  the  office  of  recorder. 

Mr.    Morris   was   twice   married,   his    second   wife   surviving   him.     He 
also   leaves  two   sons,   George    P.    Morris,   a   leading   editorial    writer   of 
The  Congregationalist,  of  Boston,  and  William  B.  Morris,  of  Minneapolis, 
and  a  daughter,  Lucy  Morris,   of  Morristown.

At  the  time  of  the  British  invasion  of  New  Haven,  in  1779,  Deacon 
Ball  had  in  charge  the  communion  silver  belonging  to  the  First  Qiurch 
of  New  Haven,  some  of  the  cups  of  which  are  very  valuable  from  his- 
torical associations.  How  to  save  this  silver?  The  wide,  open  chimneys 
of  those  days  usually  contained  a  shelf  inside  high  enough  to  be  beyond 
common  reaching  distance.  Taking  his  little  daughter  Mary  in  his 
arms,  he  lifted  her  into  the  chimney  with  the  silver  in  her  hands,  which 
she  deposited  on  the  shelf.  The  British  soldiers  searched  everywhere 
for  it  in  vain.  (See  Townsend's  "Invasion  of  New  Haven.")  Miss 
Tracy  has  just  had  a  sketch  made  of  one  of  those  cups  (presented  to 
the  church  in  1724)  to  be  used  in  a  Prout  family  article.

Eliza  Ann  Mulford,  born  November  26,  1798,  died  at  Raynham,  East 
Haven,  January  3,  1881,  greatly  admired,  honored  and  beloved  by  all 
who  knew  her.  New  Haven  papers  published  extended  obituary  notices 
in  which  her  character  is  described  as  "  radiant,  from  a  rare  union  of 
accomplishments,  of  endearing  qualities  and  of  Christian  virtues."  Her 
son,  Capt.  Charles  H.  Townsend,  has  traced  her  ancestral  lines  back  to 
fifty  or  more  of  the  first  settlers  of  New  England,  among  them  four 
Mayflowers,  John  Howland  and  his  wife  Elizabeth  Tilley,  and  her 
parents.  She  was  married,  December  3,  1820,  to  Hon.  William  Kneeland 
Townsend,  son  of  Isaac  and  Rhoda  (Atwater)  Townsend,  born  June  3, 
1796.  He  was  a  merchant,  director  of  the  New  Haven  Bank,  president 
of  several  corporations  and  associations,  lieutenant  of  Second  Company 
Governor's  Horse  Guards,  Justice  of  the  Peace  and  Representative  in 
the  Connecticut  Legislature  from  East  Haven.  He  retired  about  1830  to 
his  estate  in  East  Haven,  called  "  Raynham "  after  the  family  seat 
of  the  English  Townshends,  ancestors  of  the  East  Haven  family,  and 
died  there  September  23,  1849.  This  fine  property  is  beautifully  located 
on  the  east  side  of  New  Haven  harbor  and  is  part  of  the  original  grant 
of  the  New  Haven  Colony  to  William  Tuttle.

"  Charles  Hervey  Townshend  died  shortly  before  midnight  at  his  resi- 
dence on  Church  Street.  He  had  been  in  ill  health  for  almost  a  year. 
About  three  months  ago  Captain  Townshend  had  a  serious  attack  of 
illness,  but  he  recovered.  Last  Sunday  he  was  seized  with  a  nervous 
collapse  and  since  then  his  condition  rapidly  failed. 

"  Captain  Townshend  was  a  valuable  citizen,  and  one  who  had  the 
interest  of  his  native  city  always  at  heart.  For  a  number  of  years  he 
interested  himself  and  worked  in  behalf  of  the  project  for  the  con- 
struction of  the  system  of  breakwaters  at  the  entrance  of  the  harbor, 
which  are  now  almost  completed.     He  was  70  years  of  age. 


AMY  HEMINWAY  RECORD  135 

"Capt.  Charles  Hervey  Townshend  was  born  at  Raynham,  in  East 
Haven,  November  26,  1833,  and  was  the  seventh  in  descent  from  Thomas 
Townsend,  or  Townshend,  who  settled  at  the  Lynn  colony  of  Massa- 
chusetts bay  in  1638.  He  was  educated  at  private  schools  in  New  Haven 
and  in  Farmington,  Conn. 

"  When  about  15  years  of  age  he  made  his  first  sea  voyage  on  the 
'Hyperion,'  a  bark  of  219  tons,  built  for  Timothy  Dwight,  of  New  Haven, 
and  launched  at  the  Quinnipiac  shipyard  in  the  year  1848.  He  sailed 
from  New  York  on  his  first  sea  voyage  on  the  19th  of  April,  1849,  for 
Trinidad,  West  Indies,  returning  home  via  St.  Croix  and  St.  Thomas  to 
Baltimore.  After  two  more  voyages  on  the  same  vessel — one  to  the 
West  Indies  and  one  to  the  Mediterranean  —  young  Townshend  shipped 
as  ordinary  seaman  under  Capt.  E.  G.  Tinker  on  the  '  Margaret  Evans,'  of 
1,200  tons  burthen,  one  of  the  original  line  of  New  York  and  London 
packet  ships,  and  made  one  voyage ;  then  changed  to  the  '  Southampton,' 
1,500  tons  of  the  same  line.  This  was  then  the  largest  and  finest  ship 
in  the  trade.  In  her  he  made  several  voyages  as  able  seaman  and  the  last 
two  as  third  mate.  When  appointed  to  this  position  he  was  not  quite 
18  years  old. 

"  After  studying  navigation  a  few  months  at  New  Haven  under  the 
tuition  of  Stiles  French,  he  returned  to  New  York  and  joined  the 
'  Helvetia,'  1,200  tons,  Capt.  B.  F.  March,  of  Whitlock's  New  York  and 
Havre  Union  line  of  packet  ships,  and  in  her  made  four  voyages,  the 
first  two  as  third  mate  and  the  last  two  as  second  mate.  He  then 
changed  to  the  '  Germania,'  1,500  tons,  Captain  D.  H.  Wood  of  the  same 
line,  and  made  several  voyages  to  Havre  as  first  officer. 

"  Early  in  the  year  Captain  Townshend  took  command  of  the  New 
York  and  Havre  packet  ship  '  Bavaria.'  In  about  eight  years  he  had

REV.  JAMES  DAVENPORT  RECORD 

1727* 

Rev.  James  Davenport,  born  in  Stamford,  Conn.,  1716,  2d  son  of  the 
Rev.  John  Davenport  and  second  vi^ife  (834)  Elizabeth  (Morris)  Maltbie, 
daughter  of  (3)  John  Morris  first,  son  of  Thomas  first,  who  settled  in 
New  Haven,  1638. 

He  was  educated  at  Yale  College,  where  he  graduated  in  1732.  He 
settled  in  Southhold,  Long  Island,  in  1738.  Southhold  was  the  first  set- 
tled town  on  Long  Island  and  originally  extended  from  Brookhaven  to 
Oyster  Point,  including  all  the  islands  in  that  vicinity.  Before  the 
emigrants  from  Norfolkshire,  England,  who  had  spent  two  years  in 
New  Haven  Colony,  established  themselves  on  this  Island,  in  1640,  they 
were  advised  by  Governor  Eaton  and  John  Davenport  to  organize  into 
a  regular  church  under  a  pastor.  Rev.  John  Young  accompanied  them 
to  the  Island.  Mr.  James  Davenport  was  the  fourth  pastor  of  this 
church  and  remained  there  about  two  years  and  was  esteemed  a  pious, 
sound  and  faithful  minister.  But  in  1740,  at  the  time  Whitefield  came 
to  this  country,  and  a  season  of  great  religious  excitement  prevailed, 
Mr.  Davenport  became  carried  away  with  enthusiastic  impulses  and  with- 
out asking  the  approbation  of  his  people,  set  out  on  an  itinerancy  among 
the  churches,  leaving  his  own  particular  charge  unprovided  for.  He 
believed  that  the  Lord  was  about  to  rise  and  have  mercy  upon  Zion, 
for  the  time  to  favor  her,  yea,  the  set  time  was  come  and  he  was 
especially  called  to  prepare  the  way  of  the  Lord  by  calling  the  people 
to   repentance.     Before   leaving    Southhold,   he   assembled   the   people   at 


REV.  JAMES  DAVENPORT  RECORD  157 

his  lodging  and  addressed  them  for  twenty-four  hours  together.  The 
effort  overcame  his  strength  and  confined  him  for  some  days  to  his 
home.  (See  Prime's  "History  of  Long  Island."  The  "Great  Awaken- 
ing," by  Rev  Joseph  Tracy.)  The  last  and  most  extravagant  of  these  pub- 
lic proceedings  of  Mr.  Davenport  was  at  New  London,  where  he  was  in- 
vited in  the  spring  of  1743  to  organize  a  church.  To  cure  the  people 
there  of  their  idolatrous  love  of  worldly  things,  he  called  on  them  to 
collect  their  ornaments,  consisting  of  jewels,  rings,  &c.,  and  also  clothes, 
that  they  might  be  committed  to  the  flames,  and  even  added  to  the 
list  a  number  of  books,  the  works  of  Beveridge,  Flavel,  &c.  From  this 
time,  Mr.  Davenport  seeins  to  have  withdrawn  from  his  public  career 
and  through  the  efforts  of  his  personal  friends,  the  Rev.  Drs.  Williams 
and  Wheelock,  of  Lebanon,  the  latter  of  whom  had  married  his  sister, 
he  became  convinced  that  in  his  course  he  had  committed  many  errors 
and  voluntarily  published  a  full  and  most  ingenuous  confession  of  the 
extravagance  into  which  he  had  been  led  by  a  bad  spirit.  Mr.  Daven- 
port was  formally  dismissed  from  Southhold,  Long  Island,  in  1746,  and 
settled  at  Hopewell,  New  Jersey,  where  he  usefully  labored  for  some 
years  and  died  in  1755.

Rev.  John  Davenport,  4Th,  born  at  Freehold,  New  Jersey,  August  ii,

degree  of  A.M.  at  Yale  College  in  1785.  He  studied  Theology  with  Drs. 
Bellamy  and  Buel  and  was  ordained  at  Mattatuck,  a  parish  in  the 
town  of  Southhold,  Long  Island,  June  4,  1775,  and  served  the  congrega- 
tion there  as  a  stated  supply  for  two  years.  He  was  an  amiable  and 
excellent  man  and  labored  for  some  time  in  different  parts  of  the  Island 
and  was  dismissed  from  the  Presbytery  of  Suffolk,  April  12,  1786. 
While  at  Mattatuck,  he  was  married  to  Mrs.  Elizabeth  Barker,  the  widow 
of  his  predecessor,  the  Rev.  Nathaniel  Barker,  by  the  Rev.  John  Storrs, 
December  i8,  1775,  with  whom,  notwithstanding  the  great  disparity  in 
their  ages,  he  lived  happily  for  many  years.  He  was  the  first  minister 
upon  Long  Island  that  refused  to  administer  baptism  upon  the  indulgent 
plan.  He  was  settled  in  Bedford,  New  York,  and  afterwards  at  Deer- 
field,  New  York,  August  12,  1795,  and  dismissed  from  feeble  health  in 
1805.  In  1809  he  returned  to  the  State  of  New  York,  and  died  at 
Lysander,  July  13,  1825.

Elizabeth  Smith,  a  daughter  of  Thomas  and  Abigail  (Thompson)  Smith, 
of  East  Haven,  Conn.  He  removed  to  Great  Barrington,  Mass.,  in 
1762.  According  to  family  tradition,  he  wished  to  leave  the  seashore 
because  one  of  his  sons  had  been  drowned  at  sea.  He  lived  to  be  94 
and  was  an  earnest,  devout  man.  His  granddaughter  says  his  favorite 
psalm  was  the  4th  of  Watts'  version  and  her  mother  remembers  his 
singing  it  to  her  often.  In  his  94th  year  he  wrote  a  letter,  which  she 
has  seen,  "  to  my  children  and  grandchildren  on  the  other  side  of  the 
world,"  which,  no  doubt,  Western  Pennsylvania  seemed  to  him.

they  went,  in  1783,  to  Cherry  Valley,  the  Dickson  home,  where  Capt. 
Dickson  was  a  successful  merchant.  The  Dicksons,  however,  seem  to

County,  Penn.,  and  later  to  Erie  County,  Penn.,  where  Mary  (Morris) 
Dickson  died,  1831.  She  was  a  saintly  woman,  and  her  children  and 
grandchildren  rose  up  and  called  her  blessed.  Her  prayers  were  asked 
by  ministers  and  all  in  trouble.  She  was  carefully  educated  at  a  school 
in  Litchford.  She  was  a  most  earnest  christian  and  had  a  strong  in- 
fluence over  her  children.  She  was  adored  by  her  children.  One  said, 
"  Mother  does  not  need  to  prepare  to  die,  she  is  always  ready."

MEMOIRS  OF  JAMES  MORRIS,  3RD 

Written  by  Himself 

I  was  born  in  Litchfield,  South  Farms,  Conn.,  January  19,  1752,  of 
religious  parents.  My  father,  whose  name  was  James,  was  born  in  New 
Haven  in  1722,  and  died  in  Litchfield,  June  6,  1789,  in  the  sixty-eighth 
year  of  his  age.  He  was  married  to  the  widow  Phebe  Barnes  on  the 
8th  day  of  April,  1751.  My  mother  was  born  in  Brandford,  August  2, 
1712,  and  died  in  April,  1793.  I  had  but  one  sister,  Lucy,  who  married 
James  Woodrufif.  I  was  married  to  Elizabeth  Hubbard  of  Middletown, 
December  20,  1781.  She  was  born  December  27,  1750.  We  were  blessed 
with  five  children  —  Abigail,  James,  Reuben,  Samuel  and  Robert.  Abigail 
was  born  August  2,  1783,  and  was  married  to  Rev.  John  M.  Whiton  of 
Antrim,  N.  H.,  October  18,  1808. 

In  looking  back  to  my  early  childhood,  I  can  well  remember  that  I 
was  very  much  attached  to  my  books.  I  learned  to  read  when  I  was 
four  years  old,  and  I  plead  with  my  father  to  get  me  a  new  Bible.  My 
father  had  a  large  Bible  that  he  made  use  of  and  he  told  me  that  I 
might  read  in  his  Bible,  and  when  I  had  read  it  through,  he  would  get 
me  a  new  one.  I  then  applied  myself  to  reading,  and  read  his  large 
Bible  through  by  the  time  I  was  six  years  old.  My  father,  always 
faithful  to  his  word,  then  bought  me  a  new  Bible  of  the  common  size. 
He  was  always  very  particular  to  call  on  me  when  I  returned  from  meet- 
ing, to  render  an  account  of  what  I  had  heard  the  minister  say,  and  I 
could  not  be  excused  if  I  did  not  remember  the  text.  On  any  Sabbath 
that  I  did  not  remember  the  text,  I  was  made  to  sit  down  on  a  small 
bench,  or  form,  and  there  to  sit  till  sundown,  which  I  found  to  be  a 
great  punishment,  especially  in  the  summer  time  when  the  days  were 
very  long.  My  father  lived  only  three  miles  from  Bethlehem  meeting- 
house and  six  or  seven  from  Litchfield  meeting-house.  He  was  much 
attached  to  Dr.  Bellamy  of  Bethlehem  and  I  was  brought  up  under  his 
preaching.  My  parents  dedicated  me  to  God  in  baptism,  and  Dr.  Bel- 
lamy administered  the  ordinance  in  the  old  meeting-house  (as  I  have 
been  informed)  in  my  early  infancy.  I  often  recollect  the  awakening 
sermons  preached  by  Dr.  Bellamy,  and  they  will  be  remembered  by  me 
in  Eternity,  the  remembrance  of  which  will  swell  my  song  of  redeeming 


176        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

love,   or  increase  the   gnawings  of  that  worm  which  will  never  die,  in 
the  howlings  of  eternal  despair. 

In  my  youthful  days  I  had  an  ardent  desire  to  have  a  public  educa- 
tion, and  my  ultimate  desire  was  to  be  a  minister.  But  being  the  only 
son  of  my  father,  he  could  not  brook  the  idea  of  my  leaving  him  for 
that  purpose.  He  meant  that  I  should  live  with  him,  and  be  the  earthly 
prop  on  which  he  might  lean  in  his  old  age.  He  accordingly  built  him 
a  house  forty  feet  by  thirty,  kitchen  back,  chimney  at  each  end  and 
spaceway  through,  with  the  design  that  I  should  eventually  live  in 
half  of  it.  This  was  the  common  fireside  chat  when  I  was  but  nine 
years  old;  but  I  could  not  bear  the  thought  of  making  that  house  my 
abode  through  life.  My  father  had  a  right  in  the  Public  Library  in 
Bethlehem,  and  the  books  that  he  drew  from  time  to  time  I  was  fond 
of  reading.  They  were  chiefly  sermons  and  ecclesiastical  history  —  I 
remember  I  was  particularly  fond  of  "  Watts  on  the  Mind."  When  I 
found  a  sentence  of  Latin  in  any  book,  I  was  exceedingly  desirous  of 
knowing  the  meaning  of  it.  My  desire  increased  for  a  public  education 
till  I  arrived  at  the  age  of  eighteen  years.  I  had  often  solicited  my 
father  to  let  me  go  to  college,  till  my  solicitations  wearied  him,  and  the 
winter  I  was  eighteen  he  told  me  that  if  I  would  go  and  sled  home  a. 
certain  quantity  of  wood,  I  might  try  what  I  could  do  in  the  study  of 
Latin.  In  about  three  weeks  I  had  sledded  home  sixty  loads  of  wood, 
loading  and  unloading  the  same  myself.  I  then  went  to  live  at  Dr, 
Bellamy's  and  was  put  under  the  tuition  of  Mr.  Thomas  Miner,  who 
was  studying  divinity  with  Dr.  Bellamy.  I  applied  myself  closely  to  my 
studies.  I  was  first  put  into  the  Accidence,  all  of  which  I  committed 
perfectly  to  memory.  I  was  then  put  into  Lilly's  Latin  Grammar,  no 
English  word  being  in  the  book.  I  understood  nothing  of  what  I  was 
committing  to  memory.  I  used  to  study  and  cry  because  I  got  no  ideas. 
I  was  almost  ready  to  give  up  my  pursuit.  I  used  to  look  at  my  in- 
structor and  hear  him  talk,  and  sometimes  listen  to  his  answers  to  Dr. 
Bellamy,  and  I  finally  concluded  with  myself  that  I  had  as  much  sense 
as  Thomas  Miner,  and  if  he  had  learned  Latin  and  gone  through  col- 
lege, then  certainly  I  could.  I  would  then  take  hold  of  old  Lilly  and 
plod  away  again. 

This  continued  till  the  spring  of  1770,  when  I  returned  to  my  father. 
It  was  his  idea  that  I  remain  at  home  and  pursue  my  studies  with  Rev. 
Mr.  Herbert,  who  was  preaching  in  this  place.  I  accordingly  sat  down 
to  my  studies  at  home,  but  I  made  but  little  progress,  as  I  was  con- 
stantly interrupted.  It  was  "  James,  you  must  bring  in  some  wood," 
"  You  must  split  some  wood  fine  for  the  oven,"  "  You  must  draw  some 
water  and  bring  it  in,"  "You  must  harness  the  old  mare;  your  mother 
wants  to  ride."  When  haying  and  harvest  came  on,  my  father  said, 
"  Well,  James,  I  think  you  must  lay  aside  your  studies  till  after  harvest. 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  177 

Help  is  hard  to  get  and  we  cannot  aflford  to  lose  our  crops."  So  I  was 
shuffled  about  from  pillar  to  post  till  fall,  when  my  father  consented 
that  I  should  live  at  Mr.  Brinsmade's  in  New  Washington.  Mr.  Nathan 
Hale,  now  Judge  Hale  of  Goshen,  was  then  studying  theology  with  Mr. 
Brinsmade.  Besides  I  was  to  have  some  company  pursuing  the  same 
studies  with  myself,  viz.:  Adoniram  Judson  and  David  Judson.  Mr. 
Hale  was  an  accurate  scholar  and  an  able  instructor. 

I  continued  my  studies  under  Judge  Hale  till  1771.  I  then  went  to 
New  Haven,  sometimes  elated  with  hope,  sometimes  depressed  with  fear 
lest  I  should  not  enter  college.  But  as  it  happened,  I  passed  a  good 
examination,  and  was  admitted  a  member  of  college.  After  the  usual 
vacation,  I  went  to  college  in  October,  1771,  and  applied  myself  to  my 
studies  with  a  determination  to  be  the  best  scholar  in  my  class.  I  passed 
through  college  beloved  of  my  classmates  and  respected  by  my  tutor 
(now  President  Dwight)  and  the  members  of  the  faculty.  But  as  God 
was  pleased  to  direct  I  was  thwarted  in  my  desire  to  be  the  best  scholar 
in  my  class.  I  was  taken  sick  the  first  winter  and  confined  three 
months.  I  did  but  little  in  my  classics  till  the  May  vacation.  But, 
however,  I  passed  a  decent  examination  at  the  close  of  the  term  in  May. 
I  passed  through  college  having  my  share  of  honorary  appointments. 
There  was  no  public  commencement,  and  when  my  class  were  examined 
for  their  degrees  in  the  month  of  July,  1775,  and  degrees  were  conferred, 
I  returned  to  my  father  and  went  faithfully  to  work  haying  and  harvest- 
ing. Being  determined  to  make  theology  my  study,  I  went  in  the  fall 
for  that  purpose  to  live  with  Dr.-  Bellamy,  with  three  of  my  intimates 
at  college,  David  Fuller,  Seth  Swift  and  Adoniram  Judson.  We  pur- 
sued our  studies  with  zeal,  being  pleasantly  situated  with  the  best  of 
instructors.  I  had,  during  my  college  life,  many  serious  impulses  and 
many  stirrings  of  grace.  I  was  disposed  to  quarrel  with  the  doctrines 
of  election,  divine  decrees,  fore-ordination  and  free  agency.  I  prayed 
for  divine  direction.  I  prayed  that  the  path  of  duty  might  be  made 
plain  before  me.  I  wrote  upon  a  system  of  questions  given  to  me  by 
Dr.  Bellamy,  and  wrote  a  few  sermons. 

The  study  of  theology  was  my  delight,  but  I  thought  my  heart  was 
not  right.  In  the  midst  of  these  conflicting  feelings,  I  had  an  invitation 
to  teach  the  grammar  school  in  my  native  town.  I  had  an  offer  of  hand- 
some wages  if  I  would  undertake  it.  I  consulted  my  father,  who  had 
been  at  considerable  expense  in  my  education,  and  felt  himself  straight- 
ened. The  Revolutionary  War  had  commenced.  The  British  were  in  pos- 
session of  Boston.  Many  of  our  young  men  were  called  away  for  the 
defense  of  our  country.  My  father  thought  I  had  better  undertake  to 
teach  school,  and  accordingly  I  began  sometime  in  the  winter  of  1776 
and  kept  the  school  till  sometime  in  May  of  the  same  year. 

Then,    unthought    of    and    unsolicited,    I    had    an    ensign's    commission 


178        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

sent  to  me  from  the  Legislature  of  this  State  to  go  on  a  tour  of  six 
months  to  New  York.  This  appointment  threw  me  into  a  painful  situa- 
tion, not  knowing  what  to  do.  I  still  meant  to  pursue  the  study  of 
divinity.  I  went  to  Dr.  Bellamy  and  asked  his  advice.  He  said  that  our 
country  was  in  peril  and  my  father  had  property  to  defend.  It  was  a 
dull  time  for  preachers.  We  were  all  in  an  uproar.  He  thought  I  had 
better  accept  the  commission,  as  the  war  might  be  over  in  six  months. 
The  doctor  told  me  that  his  son  Jonathan,  my  friend  and  companion  in 
college,  was  going  with  a  like  commission,  and  I  had  better  accompany 
him.  I  accordingly  followed  his  advice,  with  the  consent  of  my  father, 
meaning  at  the  same  time  to  resume  my  studies  the  ensuing  fall  if  I 
lived  to  return. 

I  went  to  New  York  with  a  company  of  men,  was  in  the  battle  of 
Long  Island  on  the  27th  of  August,  was  in  the  retreat  from  Long  Island 
in  the  night,  when  our  army  made  a  safe  retreat  to  New  York.  Was 
in  the  battle  of  York  Island  the  15th  of  September,  the  day  the  British 
took  possession  of  the  same.  Was  in  the  battle  of  White  Plains,  where 
sundry  of  the  soldiers,  my  friends  and  acquaintances  were  killed  and 
where  I  heard  the  bitter  groans  of  the  wounded.  Many  I  feared  had 
taken  their  release  from  this  world  of  sin  for  a  world  of  eternal  woe. 
The  captain  and  lieutenant  of  the  company  to  which  I  belonged  were 
taken  sick  and  removed  from  the  camp  and  the  command  of  the  com- 
pany devolved  upon  me.  The  soldiers  universally  manifested  a  great 
respect  for  me,  for  my  care  of  them  and  my  attention  to  their  wants, 
and   for  my  sympathy  in  their  distresses. 

The  army  retreated  from  White  Plains  to  a  place  called  Newcastle, 
and  General  Washington  crossed  the  North  River  into  New  Jersey. 
The  troops  whose  enlistments  had  expired  remained  at  Newcastle.  My 
time  of  engagement  ended  in  December,  but  previously,  without  any 
desire  on  my  part,  I  had  a  commission  of  a  second  lieutenancy  sent  me 
from  Congress,  to  continue  in  service  during  the  war.  The  soldiers  were 
desirous  that  I  should  accept,  and  told  me  if  I  would,  they  would  enlist. 
I  returned  home  on  the  26th  of  December,  to  consult  my  father  and 
friends,  and  on  the  first  day  of  January  I  had  a  commission  sent  me  of 
a  first  lieutenancy.  As  the  aspect  of  affairs  grew  more  and  more  threat- 
ening and  gloomy,  I  finally  consented  to  enter  service  during  the  war. 
I  enlisted  between  thirty  and  forty  men,  more  than  half  the  company. 

During  the  winter  of  1777  I  lived  in  Litchfield  in  the  recruiting  service, 
and  received  an  order  from  the  general  to  superintend  the  hospital  in 
this  town  for  the  inoculation  of  all  the  soldiers  who  had  not  previously 
had  the  smallpox.  Nearly  two  hundred  of  them  were  inoculated  by  the 
month  of  May,  1777.  In  the  month  of  June,  I  marched  with  the  men 
I  had  enlisted,  and  joined  the  army  at  Peekskill,  and  there  passed  a 
summer's   campaign.     In   the   month   of    September,   General    Washington 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  179 

moved  the  army  from  the  banks  of  the  Hudson  across  the  Delaware 
into  the  State  of  Pennsylvania.  We  encamped  between  the  river  Lehigh 
and  Philadelphia,  and  on  the  3d  of  October,  1777,  the  army  had  orders 
to  march  to  Germantown. 

I  left  my  baggage,  and  my  Bible,  which  my  father  bought  for  me  when 
I  was  six  years  old,  in  my  trunk.  I  marched  with  only  my  military  suit 
and  my  implements  of  war,  without  any  change  of  dress,  or  even  a 
blanket.  We  marched  in  the  evening  and  reached  Germantown  by 
break  of  day  on  the  morning  of  the  4th.  The  memorable  battle  of 
Germantown  then  commenced.  Our  army  was  apparently  successful  in 
driving  the  enemy  from  their  intrenchments,  and  victory,  in  the  outset- 
ting,  seemed  to  perch  on  our  banners. 

But  the  success  of  the  day,  by  the  misconduct  of  General  Stephens, 
turned  against  us.  Many  fell  in  battle,  and  about  five  hundred  of  our 
men  surrendered  prisoners  of  war,  I  being  in  the  first  column,  at  the 
head  of  one  company.  What  began  the  attack  on  the  enemy  was  accord- 
ingly the  last  to  retreat.  Our  men,  then  undisciplined,  were  scattered. 
I  had  marched  with  a  few  men  nearly  ten  miles  before  I  was  captured, 
continually  harassed  by  the  British  dragoons  and  light  infantry.  I  finally 
surrendered  to  save  life,  with  the  few  men  under  my  command,  and 
marched  back  to  Germantown  under  a  guard.  My  waiter,  a  strong, 
athletic  man,  carried  my  blanket  and  provisions,  with  a  canteen  of  whis- 
key. He  made  his  escape,  and  was  not  taken,  so  I  was  left  without 
any  refreshment  from  break  of  day  in  the  morning  till  night.  Then  I 
was  driven  back  to  Germantown,  after  performing  a  march  of  nearly 
forty  miles  from  the  evening  before  at  six  o'clock.  I  reached  German- 
town  a  prisoner  of  war  about  sunset  and  much  exhausted.  I  was  the 
last  officer  taken,  with  about  twenty  men.  The  men  with  me  had  a  lit- 
tle food  in  their  knapsacks,  but  I  had  none.  After  sundown  I  was  shiv- 
ering with  the  cold,  and  asked  the  sergeant  of  the  guard  if  I  might  see 
the  commander  of  the  regiment.  The  sergeant,  who  was  manly  and 
sympathetic,  escorted  me  to  the  house  where  the  commander  was  quar- 
tered, and  informed  him  that  an  American  officer,  a  prisoner  of  war, 
wished  to  speak  with  him.  The  colonel  said  he  would  see  him  after  he 
had  supper.  Accordingly  I  sat  down  on  the  stoop  and  waited  about 
fifteen  minutes,  when  the  colonel  came  out  and  sat  down.  He  asked 
me  many  questions  respecting  my  motives  for  going  to  war,  rising  in 
rebellion  against  my  lawful  sovereign.  I  answered  him  pleasantly  and 
as  evasively  as  I  could  consistently  with  decency.  He  asked  me  what 
I  wanted.  I  told  him  I  was  in  a  suffering  condition,  I  had  no  blanket 
nor  any  covering  to  shield  me  from  the  cold.  I  wished  for  liberty  to 
sleep  in  the  house,  and  that  I  stood  in  need  of  food.  The  colonel  ordered 
his  servants  to  get  me  some  victuals  and  said  I  might  go  into  the  room 
where  they  were.     I   went   into  the  room.     The   servants  politely  spread 


i8o        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

a  table,  set  on  some  good  old  spirits  and  a  broiled  chicken,  well  cooked, 
with  excellent  bread  and  butter,  and  other  food  of  the  best  kind.  The 
servants  sat  off  in  the  room  and  waited  on  me  in  the  best  manner. 
This  was  really  the  best  meal  of  victuals  I  ever  ate  in  my  life. 

After  supper  I  asked  the  sergeant  what  the  colonel  said  about  my 
sleeping  in  the  house.  He  replied  that  the  colonel  said  I  was  not  on 
parole,  that  he  was  not  at  liberty  to  grant  a  parole  of  honor  and  that 
I  must  sleep  under  the  eye  of  the  guard.  I  then  asked  if  I  could  have 
a  blanket  for  the  night.  The  soldiers  who  were  waiters  to  the  colonel 
immediately  brought  me  a  large  and  clean  rose  blanket.  I  accordingly 
went  out  into  the  field  and  lay  down  among  the  soldiers  who  were 
prisoners  and  wrapped  myself  in  my  blanket,  kept  my  hat  on  my  head 
and  slept  soundly  till  morning.  Before  I  lay  down,  the  sergeant  told  me 
he  observed  I  had  a  watch  and  silver  knee-buckles.  If  I  would  give 
them  to  him  he  would  return  them  in  the  morning,  for  the  soldiers  of 
the  guard  would  probably  rob  me  of  them.  I  accordingly  committed 
them  to  him,  and  he  very  honorably  returned  them  in  the  morning. 
This  was  the  fifth  of  October.  The  prisoners  this  day  had  their  allowance 
of  provisions  dealt  out  to  them  for  the  day.  These  were  cooked  by  the 
soldiers  who  were  prisoners  and  I  partook  with  them  in  one  common 
mess.  Near  the  setting  of  the  sun  of  the  fifth,  the  prisoners  were 
ordered  to  be  escorted  to  Philadelphia,  a  distance  of  about  six  miles. 
We  then  marched  on,  and  arrived  at  the  new  jail  in  Philadelphia  about 
eight  o'clock  in  the  evening.  I  was  locked  into  a  cold  room  destitute 
of  everything  but  cold  stone  walls  and  bare  floors.  Not  a  seat  to  sit  on, 
all  total  darkness,  not  a  morsel  to  eat  or  water  to  drink.  Destitute  of 
a  blanket  to  cover  me,  I  groped  about  my  solitary  cell,  and  in  moving 
about  I  found  two  or  three  persons  on  the  floor  asleep.  I  said  nothing 
to  them  nor  they  to  me.  I  stood  on  my  feet  and  leaned  my  back 
against  the  wall  and  sometimes  moved  about  the  room.  Then,  to  change 
my  position  I  sat  down  on  the  floor.  I  got  no  sleep  nor  slumber,  parched 
with  thirst  and  not  a  person  to  whom  I  could  call  for  water.  In  short 
it  was  a  long  and  dreary  and  most  gloomy  night.  I  reflected  on  the 
miseries  of  the  damned  in  that  eternal  prison  of  despair.  But  still  Hope 
hovered  around  my  soul,  that  I  should  see  another  morning.  Morning 
at  length  arrived,  and  at  a  very  late  hour  we  were  furnished  with  some 
hard  sea  bread  and  salt  pork  and  given  some  water  to  drink.  Being 
altogether  moneyless,  I  could  purchase  nothing  for  my  comfort.  I  soon 
sold  my  watch  for  half  its  value. 

With  the  money  obtained,  I  was  able  to  purchase  some  food  pleasant 
to  my  taste.  I  wholly  gave  up  my  allowance  of  provisions  to  the  poor 
soldiers.  At  this  time  was  confined  in  the  jail  seven  hundred  prisoners 
of  war.  A  few  small  rooms  were  sequestered  for  the  officers.  Each 
room  must  contain  sixteen  men.    We   fully  covered  the  floor  when  we 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  i8i 

lay  down  to  rest,  and  the  poor  soldiers  were  shut  into  rooms  of  the 
same  magnitude  with  double  the  number.  The  soldiers  were  soon  seized 
with  jail  fever,  as  it  is  called,  and  in  the  course  of  three  months  it  swept 
off  four  hundred  men,  who  were  all  buried  in  one  continuous  grave, 
without  coffins.  The  length  of  a  man  was  the  width  of  a  grave,  lying 
three  deep,  one  upon  another.  I  thus  lived  in  jail  from  the  Sth  of 
October,  1777,  to  the  month  of  May,  1781,  our  number  daily  decreasing 
by  the  King  of  Terrors.  Such  a  scene  of  mortality  I  never  witnessed 
before.  Death  was  so  frequent  that  it  ceased  to  terrify;  it  ceased  to 
warn;  it  ceased  to  alarm  survivors.  I  was  confined  there  with  officers 
from  the  Southern  States.  The  card  table  and  the  bottle  were  their 
companions,  and  a  common  saying  was :  "  Let  us  do  this  to  kill  time." 
Oh  !  what  a  lesson  of  instruction,  when  the  longest  life  is  but  a  dream, 
a  shadow,  a  vapor,  its  precious  moments  are  a  burden ! 

I  made  contract  with  a  good  family  in  Philadelphia  to  furnish  me  two 
meals  a  day  at  $2  per  week.  I  thus  lived  during  my  continuance  in  jail, 
and  by  the  means  of  this  good  family,  I  obtained  the  privileges  of  the 
use  of  the  public  library  in  the  city.  My  time  was  devoted  to  reading. 
The  noise  of  the  card  table,  the  common  routine  of  employment  day  after 
day  ceased  to  disturb  me,  because  it  had  become  so  familiar.  I  read 
and  wrote,  leaning  upon  the  wide  recess  of  the  window,  to  my  advantage 
and  improvement.  I  endeavored  to  prevent  my  mind  becoming  soured 
by  the  severities  of  misfortune.  Early  in  the  spring,  I  began  to  lose 
my  usual  alertness  and  activity  and  by  the  beginning  of  May  I  had 
become  so  debilitated  that  I  was  admitted  on  parole  in  the  city,  on  the 
i6th  day.  I  there  continued  with  the  kind  family  which  had  befriended 
me  till  some  time  in  the  month  of  June.  When  the  British  left  Phila- 
delphia I  was  put  on  board  with  other  prisoners  and  sailed  down  the 
river  Delaware  to  New  York.  I  was  then  put  on  my  parole  of  honor, 
and  boarded  with  a  plain  Dutch  family  in  King's  County,  at  the  west 
end  of  Long  Island.     We  were  confined  within  the  limits  of  that  cotmty. 

At  Flatbush,  I  became  acquainted  with  a  Mr.  Clarke,  a  man  of  science 
and  of  large  property.  He  owned  the  most  extensive  private  library 
that  I  had  ever  known  in  the  Utiited  States.  Mr.  Clarke  made  me 
a  welcome  visitor  to  his  home  and  gave  me  access  to  his  library.  He 
allowed  me  to  take  as  many  books  as  I  chose  and  carry  them  to  my 
lodgings.  I  there  lived  two  years  and  six  months,  devoting  my  time 
to  reading.  I  completed  a  course  in  ancient  and  modern  history.  My 
exercise  was  hard  labor  and  walking.  I  tended  a  garden  one  summer 
upon  shares,  and  my  net  profits  were  about  twelve  dollars.  I  obtained 
the  use  of  a  small  piece  of  land  and  planted  it  with  potatoes  from  which 
my  profits  were  thirty  dollars.  I  was  treated  with  great  kindness  by  the 
family  with  whom  I  lived,  and  endeavored  to  be  always  on  the  pleasant 
side  with  them,   and  to  be   sure  not  to  be   wanting  in   attention   to   my 


i82        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

landlady.  Here  I  learned  that  the  little  nameless  civilities  and  attentions 
were  worth  a  great  deal  more  than  they  cost.  The  inhabitants  of  this 
county  were  all  attached  to  the  British  Government  and  believed  that 
all  the  officers  paroled  there  were  rebels,  and  that  they  would  finally  be 
hung  for  their  rebellion.  So  if  any  of  us  met  with  any  abuse  or  injury 
from  the  inhabitants  we  had  no  redress,  but  must  bear  it  patiently.  But 
notwithstanding  I  was  thus  secluded  from  my  friends,  I  felt  no  dispo- 
sition to  repine.  Every  day  afforded  me  its  enjoyments,  excepting  a 
time  when  I  had  a  pretty  severe  attack  of  ague  and  fever,  which  reduced 
me  low. 

The  whole  term  of  my  captivity  was  three  years  and  three  months, 
lacking  one  day.  I  was  exchanged  the  3d  of  January,  1781.  I  was  taken 
from  Flatbush  to  New  York,  and  from  there  to  Elizabeth,  in  New 
Jersey,  and  set  at  liberty.  I  then  procured  assistance  to  carry  me  and 
my  baggage  to  Peekskill.  I  there  left  my  chest  and  marched  on  to  the 
Highlands  to  the  army,  which  had  taken  winter  quarters  in  the  woods. 
I  found  in  the  regiment  to  which  I  belonged  that  my  rank  as  an  officer 
had  been  remembered  and  noticed.  I  was  appointed  captain  in  1778.  I 
took  the  command  of  my  company  and  directed  four  men  to  procure  a 
boat  and  take  me  down  the  river  to  Peekskill,  for  the  purpose  of  taking 
my  chest  of  clothing.  The  river  was  open  in  the  channel,  but  frozen 
near  the  banks.  I  landed  at  Peekskill  in  the  evening,  it  being  very  dark. 
The  waters  were  deep  near  the  shore  and  covered  with  ice,  and  by 
making  a  misstep  near  the  shore  where  the  ice  had  been  cut  away  for  the 
boat  to  enter,  I  fell  into  the  river  and  could  find  no  bottom.  I  seized 
the  edge  of  the  ice  while  my  body  by  the  rapidity  of  the  current  was 
carried  horizontally  up  against  the  under  side  of  the  ice  and  I  held  on, 
calling  for  help,  till  the  men  came  to  my  assistance.  A  few  seconds 
more  of  suspense  would  have  landed  me  in  eternity.  I  got  the  chest 
into  the  boat,  after  changing  my  wet  clothing,  and  toward  morning, 
taking  advantage  of  the  tide,  my  men  rowed  the  boat  up  the  river  and 
I  returned  to  my  regiment  the   following  day. 

I  soon  after  obtained  a  furlough  of  two  months  to  return  to  my 
parents  in  Litchfield.  During  this  time  I  visited  Philadelphia  and  amply 
repaid  the  kind  family  who  had  befriended  me  for  my  board  during  the 
winter  of  1777-78.  When  my  furlough  ended,  in  March,  1781,  I  joined 
the  army  and  was  immediately  detached  from  my  regiment  to  take  com- 
mand of  a  company  of  light  infantry  drawn  from  the  several  regiments 
in  the  Connecticut  line  of  the  army.  My  company  was  kept  completely 
full  of  men  during  the  summer  of  1781.  H  any  was  sick  or  died  re- 
turns were  made  and  another  man  was  sent  to  fill  the  place.  In  the 
forepart  of  the  campaign  of  1781  the  army  was  stationed  near  White 
Plains.  Several  companies  had  skirmishes  with  the  enemy  near  Kings- 
bridge.     Numbers  were  killed  on  both  sides.     I  was  personally  in  several 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  183 

severe  actions,  of  which  the  light  infantry  must  always  be  in  front.  I 
experienced  many  narrow  escapes,  but  still  I  was  preserved.  Not  a  bone 
fractured,  not  even  a  flesh  wound  while  others  fell  by  my  side. 

Near  the  close  of  the  month  of  August  our  regiment,  commanded  by 
Colonel  Scammel,  received  orders  to  march  to  Virginia.  I  marched  with 
the  regiment,  at  the  head  of  my  company,  to  the  head  of  Chesapeake  Bay, 
about  two  hundred  miles.  We  sailed  down  the  bay  and  landed  at  Wil- 
liamsburg. Here  General  Washington,  with  his  army,  encamped  a  few 
days.  He  then  ordered  his  army  to  move  to  Yorktown,  about  thirteen 
miles.  The  march  was  performed  in  one  day,  about  the  middle  of 
October.  On  the  i6th  day,  at  evening,  the  light  infantry  was  ordered 
to  take  a  fort  by  storm,  which  was  situated  near  the  mouth  of  the 
York  River.  Accordingly,  as  soon  as  twilight  was  gone,  we  began  our 
march.  I  had  command  of  the  first  company  at  the  head  of  the  column 
which  supported  the  forlorn  hope.  Not  a  man  was  killed  in  the  forlorn 
hope.  They  were  so  near  the  enemy  before  they  were  discovered  that 
the  enemy  overshot  them  and  their  whole  force,  to  the  main  body. 
There  were  eight  men  killed  near  the  head  of  the  column,  and  all  within 
thirty  feet  of  where  I  stood,  and  about  fifty  men  were  wounded.  Yet 
by  a  kind  Providence,  I  was  mercifully  preserved.  The  forlorn  hope, 
commanded  by  Colonel  Alexander  Hamilton,  were  successful  in  taking 
the  fort.  Our  men  then  covered  themselves  by  an  entrenchment  a  mile 
and  a  half  long,  in  less  than  an  hour.  The  French  army  made  an 
attack  on  a  fort  on  our  left,  at  the  same  time  that  we  made  an  attack 
on  the  fort  on  the  bank  of  York  River.  The  French  lost  about  two 
hundred  men.  When  we  had  gotten  possession  of  these  forts,  we  had 
possession  of  the  ground  overlooking  Yorktown. 

The  British  were  cooped  up  in  an  elbow  of  the  river.  When  morn- 
ing light  appeared  the  enemy  found  their  condition  hopeless.  Our  ar- 
tillery began  their  play  upon  the  town.  The  enemy,  panicstruck,  beat 
a  parley.  On  the  17th  day  a  flag  was  sent  out  requesting  a  cessation 
of  hostilities  for  24  hours.  General  Washington  replied  that  he  would 
grant  them  two  hours  only.  The  moment  the  two  hours  expired  the 
whole  artillery  of  our  army  and  that  of  the  French  also  discharged  upon 
Yorktown.  It  was  a  most  tremendous  roaring.  Before  another  dis- 
charge could  be  made  the  British  beat  a  parley  and  sent  another  flag 
requesting  that  commissioners  might  be  appointed  to  agree  upon  articles 
of  capitulation  for  a  surrender.  Accordingly,  commissioners  were  ap- 
pointed and  articles  agreed  upon. 

On  the  i8th  day,  a  day  of  respite,  our  soldiers  were  ordered  to  wash 
and  appear  clean  next  day.  The  British  were  snug  in  their  tents  during 
this  time.  On  the  19th  day  our  whole  army  and  the  French  army 
assembled,  our  army  on  the  right,  and  the  French  army  on  the  left, 
about  six  miles  apart,  and  each  line  reaching  more  than  a  mile  on  an 


i84        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

extended  plain.  We  were  thus  drawn  up  to  review  the  vanquished.  The 
British  army  marched  out  between  our  two  armies,  drums  beating  their 
own  tunes,  colors  muffled,  and  after  they  passed  in  review  of  our  army 
they  piled  their  arms  on  the  field  of  submission  and  returned  back  in 
the  same  manner  into  Yorktown. 

On  the  20th  day,  according  to  custom,  would  be  the  day  of  pagan 
rejoicing  and  huzzas,  but  instead  of  this  General  Washington  issued  his 
orders  of  a  general  pardon  for  all  culprits  of  the  army,  those  that  were 
confined  for  crimes  and  those  that  were  under  sentence  of  a  court  mar- 
tial. He  ordered  the  army  to  assemble  for  divine  service  and  give  thanks 
to  God  for  the  success  of  our  army,  chaplains  to  do  their  duty  praying 
and  preaching  to  their  several  brigades  discourses  suitable  to  the  occa- 
sion. How  far  preferable  was  this  to  a  people  professing  to  be  Christians 
to  the  heathenish  custom  of  a  pow-wow  and  exulting  over  the  humble 
vanquished.  Here  General  Washington's  character  shone  with  true  lustre 
in  giving  God  the  glory. 

Our  Army,  after  taking  care  of  the  military  stores  which  fell  into 
our  hands,  were  ordered  to  join  our  respective  regiments.  I  marched 
with  my  men  from  Yorktown  in  Virginia  to  the  highlands  on  the  east 
side  of  the  Hudson  in  New  York,  in  the  month  of  November,  1781. 
Through  all  the  dangers  of  this  fatiguing  campaign  I  enjoyed  remark- 
able health  and  was  able  to  endure  its  hardships  with  cheerfulness  and 
activity.  In  December  I  obtained  a  furlough  for  a  few  weeks  to  visit 
my  friends  in  Litchfield.  My  parents  received  me  with  joy.  While  I 
was  absent  on  this  furlough  I  was  married.  I  returned  to  the  Army 
and  continued  with  it  during  the  campaign  of  the  summer  of  1782.  The 
Army  this  summer  were  basking  at  their  ease  and  were  encamped  near 
King's  Ferry,  a  little  below  Peekskill.  There  was  no  fighting  after 
Cornwallis  and  his  army  were  captured  at  Yorktown. 

In  the  month  of  November,  1782,  I  was  released  from  the  Army.  I 
returned  to  my  parents  to  comfort  their  declining  years  and  to  enjoy 
the  sweets  of  domestic  life.  At  this  time  I  was  thirty  years  of  age.  I 
felt  a  desire  to  resume  my  studies  in  theology  and  pondered  on  the 
subject.  My  father  had  become  infirm  from  a  wound  he  had  received 
from  an  axe,  and  consequent  loss  of  blood.  My  mother  was  seventy 
years  old,  and  sunk  down  in  her  dotage.  My  parents  were  both  un- 
willing that  I  should  leave  them,  and  I  myself  was  still  doubting  and 
fearing  my  heart  was  not  right  with  God.  I  lived  with  my  parents  dur- 
ing the  winter  of  1782-3  and  endeavored  to  comfort  them  by  attending 
to  their  domestic  concerns  and  relieving  my  father  from  the  necessary 
cares  of  a  cold  winter.  My  friends  and  neighbors  united  in  saying 
that  I  must  live  in  South  Farms  and  be  their  justice  of  the  peace,  and 
accordingly  in  May,  1783,  I  was  appointed  justice  of  the  peace  and  was 
chosen  by  the  people  of  this  town  as  selectman.    Thus  situated,  and  not- 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  185 

withstanding  my  heart  had  from  early  youth  devised  the  way  to  be  a 
minister  of  the  Gospel,  yet  God  designed  it  should  not  be  so,  but  had 
otherwise  directed  my  steps. 

In  the  month  of  May,  1783,  I  moved  my  wife  from  Middletown  and 
set  up  housekeeping  in  the  same  house  my  father  built  for  me  when 
I  was  nine  years  old  and  to  which  I  had  in  my  childhood  so  great  an 
aversion.  I  repaired  the  house  and  barn.  I  employed  two  hired  men  in 
the  summer  of  1783  in  order  to'  repair  fences,  clear  up  hedgerows,  and, 
as  the  saying  is,  I  slicked  up  the  farm.  In  my  office  of  Justice  of  the 
Peace  I  was  often  called  on  to  do  business.  Courts  were  often  held. 
Sometimes  large  numbers  of  people  would  attend,  and  when  I  set  up 
housekeeping  we  often  had  company  to  visit  us.  My  parents  being 
advanced  in  years  and  in  the  evening  of  life,  they  chose  retirement.  My 
mother,  especially,  could  not  be  broken  of  her  rest  and  we  often  had 
evening  visitors.  They  would  stay  till  after  nine  o'clock  and  some 
noise  would  be  made  either  in  conversation  or  when  they  bid  us  good 
night.  In  the  morning  my  mother  would  complain  that  she  was  so  dis- 
turbed that  she  did  not  sleep,  and  that  she  could  not  have  it  so;  that  I 
should  send  off  my  company  before  nine  o'clock. 

Finding  my  situation  growing  unpleasant,  yet  at  the  same  time  feeling 
disposed  to  do  everything  in  my  power  to  smooth  the  pillow  of  age 
and  to  render  the  condition  of  my  beloved  parents  comfortable,  I  con- 
sulted my  father  on  the  subject,  and  told  him  that  I  had  it  in  con- 
templation to  purchase  the  house  and  land  where  I  now  live.  That  it 
was  more  central  for  my  business  and  that  it  was  nearer  to  Litchfield 
town,  where  I  was  often  called  to  transact  business.  My  father  gave  his 
consent  that  I  should  purchase  the  house  and  land,  at  the  same  time 
informing  me  that  if  I  purchased  this  place  I  must  pay  for  it  myself, 
as  he  had  no  loose  money  to  spare.  The  burden  of  taxes  bore  hard 
upon  the  middle  class  of  farmers  to  defray  the  expenses  of  the  war. 
My  father  had  already  given  me  a  deed  of  one-half  of  his  house  and 
fifty  acres  of  land  from  his  farm.  My  father  therefore  informed  me 
that  if  I  ran  in  debt  I  must  go  with  my  eyes  open  and  not  depend  on 
him  for  help. 

It  seemed  that  everything  respecting  my  purchase  was  directed  by  a 
kind  providence.  I  had  no  money,  but  I  had  in  my  possession  four 
hundred  pounds  nominally  of  State  obligations  which  were  depreciating 
every  day  from  their  nominal  value.  They  were  granted  to  me  for  my 
services  in  the  war,  on  account  of  the  depreciation  of  Continental  money. 
This  place  was  mortgaged  to  Dr.  Bird  for  £130.  Mr.  David  Leavitt  had 
an  attachment  on  it  for  ;£i6o.  I  had  made  a  bargain  for  the  purchase  of 
this  house  and  lands  for  the  sum  of  £475  lawful  money.  The  day  was 
appointed  when  the  creditors  were  to  meet  to  see  if  any  compromise 
could  be  made.     Dr.  Bird  agreed  to  take  my  State  obHgations  at  fifteen 


i86        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

shillings  on  the  pound.  Mr.  Leavitt  agreed  in  like  manner,  so  I  paid  the 
whole  sum  down  on  the  day  that  I  took  the  deed. 

This  bargain  was  made  in  the  month  of  December,  1784.  In  the  month 
of  January,  1785,  I  was  industriously  providing  for  myself  a  good  wood- 
pile for  the  use  of  the  house,  besides  attending  to  the  concerns  of  my 
father,  my  family  being  then  in  his  house.  I  was  elated  with  the  idea 
that  in  the  spring  I  should  set  up  housekeeping  in  my  present  house, 
and  that  I  should  glide  along  smoothly  without  being  in  any  degree 
burdensome  to  my  beloved  and  aged  parents.  But  God  did  not  design 
that  I  should  have  altogether  so  smooth  a  passage.  At  the  latter  end 
of  February  God  was  pleased  to  cast  me  on  a  bed  of  severe  sickness 
with  the  bilious  colic. 

I  underwent  the  most  distressing  pain.  I  was  confined  thirty  days  and 
my  life  was  despaired  of.  I  then  had  two  children,  my  wife  expecting 
to  be  left  in  widowhood,  my  father  often  praying  with  and  for  me.  My 
friends  and  neighbors  lent  their  friendly  aid  for  our  assistance.  I  have 
contemplated  that  this  afflictive  sickness  was  designed  by  my  Maker  to 
answer  some  of  His  purposes  in  this  place.  By  this  sickness  and  dis- 
tress the  door  was  open  for  the  people  to  show  me  kindness,  and  by 
means  of  the  favors  they  bestowed  they  became  more  friendly  to  me. 
Hence  the  way  was  opened  for  what  God  had  designed  I  should  do  for 
this  people,  as  a  feeble  instrument  in  His  hand. 

About  the  year  1780  South  Farms  had  become  a  stench  in  the  nostrils 
of  all  good  men.  Profane  swearing,  Sabbath-breaking  and  drunkenness 
were  not  uncommon  among  professors  of  religion.  The  young  people 
were  clownish,  ignorant  and  uncivil.  My  first  effort  was  to  attract  the 
attention  of  the  "children  in  the  three  schools  then  existing.  In  the 
years  1783  and  1784  they  were  taught  by  active  and  ambitious  teachers 
with  whom  I  soon  became  acquainted.  It  was  agreed  that  at  the  close 
of  the  schools  in  the  spring  the  several  instructors,  with  their  children, 
should  meet  at  the  old  meeting-house,  and  that  the  eight  scholars  in 
each  school  who  performed  the  best  in  a  public  examination  should  have 
a  book.  I  procured  two  dozen  of  Webster's  new  spelling  book,  the  first 
that  were  introduced  into  this  society,  and  presented  them  to  the 
scholars  as  proposed.  This  apparently  excited  a  spirit  of  emulation  in 
the  several  schools.  From  this  time  forward  I  endeavored  to  make 
myself  acquainted  with  all  the  children,  occasionally  visiting  the  schools. 
I  exerted  myself  that  each  school  should  be  furnished  with  able  teachers 
—  persons  of  taste  and  principle  —  and  I  found  there  was  a  promising 
class  of  yovith  coming  forward. 

At  this  juncture,  when  I  thought  things  in  the  parish  were  beginning 
to  wear  a  pleasant  aspect,  the  news  spread  that  the  officers  of  the  army 
had  a  commutation  of  five  years'  pay  for  service  during  the  Revolutionary 
War.     This  fired  the  minds  of  the  community.     I  became  obnoxious  to 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  187 

the  mass  of  people  in  the  society  because  I  was  an  officer  of  the  num- 
ber. When  I  had  any  severe  sickness,  members  of  the  old  stock  of 
men  hoped  I  should  die.  One  noisy  old  man,  towards  eighty  years  old, 
said  at  a  public  house  before  company,  that  he  hoped  I  should  die  and 
that  they  would  take  my  skin  for  a  drumhead  to  drum  other  officers  out 
of  town.  One  of  my  old  soldiers,  who  was  in  the  company,  drew  his 
bayonet  and  told  the  old  man  that  he  had  a  mind  to  plunge  it  into  his 
heart.  That  he  hoped  I  should  get  well,  and  live  to  eat  the  geese  that 
fattened  on  the  old  man's  grave. 

In  the  month  of  April,  1785,  I  removed  with  my  family  to  my  present 
dwelling,  and  soon  after  I  was  appointed  by  the  society  as  one  of  their 
committee,  which  office  I  held  for  eight  successive  years.  This  embraced 
the  time  of  building  the  meeting-house  and  settling  Mr.  Chase.  In  the 
year  1787  I  purchased  of  Mr.  Benjamin  Hall  his  farm  of  no  acres  for 
430  pounds  lawful  money,  paying  one-fourth  in  money  and  the  remainder 
in  five  annual  instalments  in  neat  cattle,  at  the  appraisal  of  men.  I 
then  purchased  all  the  calves  I  could  obtain,  hoping  they  would  grow 
into  cattle  of  worth  by  the  time  my  payments  became  due. 

In  June,  1789,  God  was  pleased  to  remove  my  dear  father  by  death. 
A  considerable  sum  in  money  and  cattle  was  placed  in  my  hands  by 
which  I  was  enabled  to  free  myself  from  debt  without  any  embarrass- 
ment. Thus  I  was  prospered  in  my  worldly  concerns,  though  the  loss 
of  my  father  was  a  grievous  stroke.  I  was  at  this  time  thirty-eight  years 
old.  During  my  early  life  I  had  adopted  a  variety  of  maxims.  They 
were  such  as  these:  Never  to  be  wanting  in  integrity;  never  to  suffer 
my  passion  to  gain  ascendancy  over  me ;  never  to  contend  with  persons 
in  things  unessential ;  adopt  an  independent  mode  of  thinking ;  always  be 
firm  in  principle,  but  smooth  in  manner;  never  to  promise  more  than  I 
can  perform;  avoid  detraction  of  others;  always  endeavor  to  honor  and 
please  the  aged.  These,  and  many  other  maxims,  I  had  noted  down  in 
my  commonplace  book  during  my  college  and  military  life.  But  I 
found  them  to  be  only  cobwebs;  they  did  not  satisfy  my  mind.  As  to 
my  head,  I  was  a  Christian,  while  my  heart  was  estranged  from  holiness. 
After  the  strictest  sect  of  the  world's  morality  I  lived  a  Pharisee.  It 
pleased  God  to  awaken  me.  My  father  dated  his  conversion  from  the 
general  outpouring  in  1740-41,  before  he  was  twenty  years  old.  My 
mind  was  anxiously  impressed  with  the  idea  that  presently  I  should  be 
forty  years  old,  and  if  I  sinned  away  the  day  of  grace  till  after  that 
period,  my  crime  would  be  sealed  in  the  book  of  God  against  me.  I 
had  nowhere  to  go  but  to  my  Saviour,  and  I  hope  I  was  plucked  as  a 
brand  from  the  burning.  O  my  dear  children,  if  ever  this  little  scrap 
should  fall  into  your  hands,  think  how  perilous  it  is  to  live  without  God 
in  the  world  so  long  as  your  father  has  done.

On  the  7th  of  November,  1790,  it  being  Lord's  day  —  I  made  a  public 
profession  of  religion,  and  joined  the  church  in  this  place.  About 
this  time,  the  children  to  whom  I  had  presented  books  in  1783-4  began 
to  look  to  me  for  further  instruction.  They  were  fond  of  calling  on 
me  at  my  house,  and  I  gave  them  access  to  my  library.  I  informed 
them  that  I  would  give  them  instruction  in  grammar  and  geography 
if  they  would  attend  to  it,  and  I  gave  them  the  best  advice  I  could  as 
to  what  line  of  conduct  it  was  best  for  them  to  pursue.  I  took  more 
pains  with  the  young  ladies  in  the  outsetting  than  I  did  with  the  others, 
for  experience  had  taught  me  in  my  travels  that  in  every  town  or 
village  where  there  was  a  chaste  and  virtuous  set  of  young  ladies  there 
was  a  decent  class  of  young  men.  Hence  I  concluded  that  a  reforma- 
tion in  society  must  begin  with  the  females.  It  was  now  a  new  thing 
for  ladies  to  have  any  more  education  than  could  be  obtained  in  the 
common  schools  —  reading,  writing  and  spelling  were  all  the  branches 
that  were  taught  —  and  it  was  often  said  that  girls  need  not  learn  to 
write.  If  they  could  write  their  own  names  it  was  sufficient.  Girls  did 
not  commonly  attend  to  schooling  after  they  were  10  or  12  years  of  age. 

The  mode  of  instruction  I  employed  with  the  young  people  met  with 
opposition.  It  was  said  I  was  making  an  innovation  on  the  manners  and 
customs  of  youth.  I  was  blowing  up  their  pride.  They  would  feel  above 
their  mates  and  above  laborers.  A  stop  must  be  put  to  it.  This  spirit 
of  opposition  commenced  in  the  year  1792.  On  the  13th  of  January, 
1793,  I  was  appointed  to  the  office  of  deacon  in  this  church.  The  oppo- 
sition to  me  was  increasing.  It  had  found  a  place  in  the  breasts  of  two 
of  my  brethren  in  the  church.  I  hesitated  whether  I  should  take  on 
myself  so  important  an  office.  I  knew  myself  to  be  constitutionally 
independent  and  cheerful,  and  I  was  fearful  lest  my  deportment  would 
not  promote  the  interests  of  the  church.  But  after  consulting  with 
my  friends,  who  were  the  most  substantial  members  in  the  church,  and 
taking  the  subject  into  prayerful  consideration,  I  accepted  the  office,  I 
hoped  with  meekness  and  fear.  The  opposition  to  my  school  increased 
till  the  year  1794.  A  certain  class  of  men  who  were  envious  because 
I  was  appointed  Justice  of  the  Peace  at  the  age  of  30  and  deacon  at  the 
age  of  40,  now  boiled  over. 

Religion  was  made  the  shouting  horn.  I  was  disturbing  the  peace  of  the 
church.  I  was  too  familiar  with  the  ladies  in  my  school.  I  had  even 
been  seen  walking  with  them  to  their  respective  homes.  I  was  bringing 
in  fashions  repugnant  to  the  interests  of  society.  This  clamor  excited 
the  jealousy  and  suspicion  of  sundry  brethren  in  the  church.  A  church 
meeting  was  held  in  the  month  of  July,  1794,  and  a  committee  of  inquiry 
was  appointed  to  look  into  the  reports  circulating  respecting  me,  and 
bring  a  complaint  against  me,  if  they  found  cause.  This  committee 
brought  forward  a  complaint  charging  me  with  lascivious  carriage.     One 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  189 

of  the  brethren  in  the  church,  being  apprehensive  that  the  charge  against 
me  was  too  high  and  could  not  be  proved,  charged  me  with  a  violation 
of  the  Christian  peace,  and  enumerated  sundry  items  of  my  conduct  to 
that  effect.  It  was  unanimously  agreed  to  refer  both  complaints  against 
me  to  a  mutual  comicil.  Accordingly,  the  churches  of  Southbury,  Wood- 
bury, Bethlehem,  Judea  and  Warren  were  sent  to  for  their  minister  and 
delegate,  and  on  the  27th  day  of  August,  1794,  I  had  a  public  hearing. 
It  excited  the  attention  of  the  whole  society  and  the  neighboring  towns. 
A  great  collection  of  people  assembled,  as  the  hue  and  cry  was  to  see 
the  villain  fall. 

Both  complaints  were  read  before  the  council  in  the  forenoon.  After 
a  short  statement  the  council  adjourned  for  dinner,  then  met  again  soon 
after  noon.  Twenty-six  witnesses  appeared  against  me,  and  testified  about 
every  minute  action  that  they  had  discovered  in  my  walk  for  two  years 
and  a  half  preceding.  I  viewed  this  trial  as  a  chastisement  in  the 
providence  of  God  to  prepare  me  for  what  he  would  have  me  to  do. 
Some  of  the  witnesses,  who  were  opposed  to  my  school,  testified  to 
what  they  knew  was  not  true,  and  confessed  the  same  to  me  a  year  after- 
ward, excusing  themselves  by  saying  that  they  testified  without  being 
under  oath. 

After  a  long  hearing  of  the  witnesses,  the  council  took  the  matter  into 
mature  deliberation,  and  on  the  twenty-eighth  of  August  reported  "  That 
the  complaint  brought  against  me  by  the  church  was  by  no  means  sup- 
ported. But  that  on  the  other  complaint  of  disturbing  the  Christian 
peace,  they  were  constrained  to  say  that  I  had  been  a  little  imprudent. 
But  they  advised  the  church  to  receive  me  into  the  arms  of  their 
charity."  The  church  was  asked  whether  it  would  abide  the  decision  of 
the  council,  and  voted  in  the  affirmative.  The  question  was  then  put  to 
me,  and  I  said  I  would  acquiesce.  My  persecutors  were  exceedingly 
appalled.  Some  of  them  soon  after  moved  out  of  the  Society,  some 
were  taken  away  by  the  immediate  hand  of  God,  and  one  of  the  brethren 
who  was  violently  opposed  to  me  joined  the  Episcopalians  and  was 
finally  excommunicated. 

All  this  persecution  turned  out  to  my  advantage.  My  school  had 
hitherto  been  confined  mostly  to  the  youth  of  this  society,  but  in  the 
fall  of  1794  it  was  thronged  with  young  people  from  other  towns,  and 
from  this  time  to  1803  I  had  as  many  pupils  as  I  could  attend  to,  sum- 
mer and  winter.  It  was  now  the  general  remark  that  there  was  as 
promising  a  class  of  young  people  in  South  Farms  as  in  any  town  in 
the  country  and  they  were  generally  sought  for  as  instructors  in  the 
district  schools. 

In  the  year  1803,  sundry  good  people  in  this  society  united  and  built 
a  large  schoolhouse  with  the  design  of  embodying  my  school,  and  called 
it  the  Academy.     The  building  was  completed  in  the  month  of  Novem- 


I90        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

ber,  1803.  I  then  procured  an  assistant  and  extended  the  branches  of 
science  to  be  taught.  Most  of  the  classics  that  were  attended  to  at  our 
colleges  were  taught  in  this  academy.  More  than  sixty  scholars  have 
entered  college  from  this  school,  and  more  than  1,500  have  been  members 
of  it.  Scholars  have  been  here  for  instruction  from  all  the  New  England 
States  except  Rhode  Island,  from  the  States  of  New  York,  New  Jersey, 
Pennsylvania,  Maryland,  Virginia,  South  Carolina  and  Georgia,  also  from 
the  island  of  St.  Thomas  in  the  West  Indies  and  from  Bermuda. 

Soon  after  I  began  to  teach  my  school  in  1790,  I  began  a  course  of 
lectures  on  morals  which  were  delivered  weekly,  giving  audience  to  any 
persons  who  chose  to  attend.  This  I  continued  for  the  course  of  twenty 
years,  which  I  hope  have  been  useful  and  instructive  to  many  youth 
who  have  been  committed  to  my  care.  Thus  God  in  His  providence  has 
directed  me  to  spend  my  life  in  the  place  of  my  nativity.  If  I  have 
ever  done  any  good  to  my  fellowmen,  let  the  praise  be  to  Him  who 
hath  directed  my  steps.  I  have  held  an  office  of  one  kind  or  another 
in  the  gift  of  the  town,  for  thirty-one  years.  Twenty-nine  years  I  have 
held  an  office  in  the  gift  of  the  society.  Thirty  years  I  have  held  an 
office  in  the  gift  of  the  State. 

In  the  year  1798  I  was  chosen  representative  from  this  town  to  the 
General  Assembly  and  continued  to  represent  the  town  for  the  greater 
part  of  the  time  till  1806.  I  then  declined  the  election.  I  have  had  my 
share  of  worldly  honors.  I  have  had  my  share  of  happiness  in  domestic 
life.  I  have  been  blessed  with  obedient  and  affectionate  children.  I 
have  had  a  numerous  circle  of  friends  and  acquaintances  and  have 
shared  largely  in  the  affections  of  my  pupils.  I  have  many  times  been 
ready  to  exclaim.  Why  have  I  been  made  the  subject  of  so  much  good- 
ness from  the  hand  of  God?  In  all  the  relative  duties  which  I  have 
been  called  to  discharge  I  have  had  much  occasion  to  exclaim,  Oh !  my 
leanness,  my  barrenness  in  the  offerings  I  owe  to  God  and  my  fellow- 
men.  After  giving  myself  to  God  in  covenant  vows  and  dedicating  my 
children  in  baptism  I  formed  many  resolutions,  namely : 

Resolved,  Not  to  be  a  stumbling  block  to  any  by  my  example. 

Resolved,  When  I  am  about  to  enter  upon  any  important  undertaking, 
to  ask  divine  direction  in  prayer. 

Resolved,  Not  to  fail  daily  to  pray  in  secret. 

Resolved,  To  impart  religious  instruction  to  my  children  and  commend 
them  daily  to  God  in  prayer. 

Resolved,  To  exercise  candor  and  charity  toward  all. 

Resolved,  Not  to  be  so  tenacious  of  my  principle  as  not  to  throw  my- 
self open  to  conviction  by  reason  founded  on  the  Scriptures. 

Resolved,  To  be  submissive  in  all  afflictions. 

Resolved,  Never  to  court  temptation. 


JAMES  MORRIS,  JR.,  RECORD  191 

Resolved,  Ever  to  pray  that  my  faith  may  be  strengthened. 

Resolved,  To  keep  a  daily  watch  and  guard  over  my  heart. 

Resolved,  To  live  daily  in  the  exercise  of  true  repentance  and  godly 
sorrow  for  sin. 

Resolved,  Never  to  live  in  the  indulgence  of  any  known  sin. 

Upon  reflection,  it  ill  becomes  me  to  resolve  what  I  will  do  —  O  God, 
enable  me  to  avoid  temptation,  and  may  I  trust  in  Thee  to  uphold  me 
in  all  my  walks ! 

The  first  day  of  September,  1814,  my  wife,  Elizabeth,  had  a  paralytic 
shock  which  rendered  insensible  the  one-half  of  her  whole  body  from 
her  head  to  her  feet.  She  continued  helpless  as  an  infant  till  the  Qth 
day  of  said  September  about  half  after  ten  in  the  forenoon,  when  she 
expired,  aged  sixty-three.  Her  funeral  was  attended  by  a  large  con- 
course of  people  on  the  loth  day  of  said  September.  Rev.  Mr.  Lyman 
Beecher  preached  a  sermon  on  the  occasion  from  Job  xiv.  14 :  "  All  the 
days  of  my  appointed  time  will  I  wait  till  my  change  come."  My  heart 
overflows  with  gratitude  to  my  kind  friends  and  neighbors  for  their 
kind  attention  to  her  in  her  distressed  and  helpless  illness,  and  for 
their  very  respectful  kindness  in  performing  the  last  mournful  offices 
in  committing  her  remains  to  the  silent  mansions  of  the  grave. 

On  the  6th  day  of  March,  1815,  I  married  my  second  wife,  Rhoda 
Farnum,  a  lady  possessing  all  the  qualities  necessary  to  make  domestic 
life  happy  in  the  conjugal  state.  On  the  30th  day  of  January,  1816,  she 
brought  me  a  fine  daughter,  whom  we  named  Jane  Elizabeth  —  a  dear 
babe  and  a  precious  gift  from  heaven.  Oh,  may  we  have  grace  and 
divine  aid  to  bring  her  up  in  the  fear  of  God!  When  I  behold  her 
verging  into  life  I  am  ready  to  exclaim  with  the  pious  poet : 

Thou   embryo  angel,  or  thou  infant  fiend, 

A  being  now  begun,  but  ne'er  to  end. 

What  boding  fears  a  father's  heart  torment. 

Trembling  and  anxious  for  the  grand  event. 

Lest  thy  young  soul,  so  late  by  Heaven  bestowed, 

Forget  her  father  and  neglect  her  God. 

Lest  while  imprisoned  in  this  house  of  clay 

To  tyrant  lust  she  fall  a  helpless  prey. 

Maker  of  souls,  avert  so  dire  a  doom. 

Or  snatch  her  back  to  native  nothing's  gloom! 

On  the  Lord's  Day,  April  21,  1816,  we  dedicated  our  infant  to  God  in 
baptism.  O,  may  she  be  early  adopted  into  the  family  of  the  Redeemer. 
On  the  22d  day  of  November,  1817,  my  dear  companion  presented  me 
with  a  son  whom  we  named  Timothy  Dwight,  in  grateful  remembrance 


192        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

of  my  much  esteemed  and  beloved  friend,  Rev.  Timothy  Dwight,  late 
president  of  Yale  College,  who  was  the  tutor  of  my  class  in  college  in 
the  years  1771-1773.  On  the  3d  day  of  May,  1818,  we  dedicated  our  son 
to  God  in  the  ordinance  of  baptism,  hoping  by  the  grace  of  God  to  train 
him  up  for  the  dear  Redeemer,  and  that  the  child  may  be  useful  in  life, 
prepared  for  death,  and  finally  be  made  a  trophy  of  divine  grace  in  the 
Kingdom  of  Heaven. 

Here  the  account  ends:  but  Mrs.  Whiton  adds  the  following: 
My  father  left  his  home  Monday,  April  17,  1820,  to  attend  the  foreign 
missionary  school  at  Cornwall,  and  was  taken  ill  about  ten  o'clock  that 
evening.  Being  anxious  to  reach  his  dwelling  before  his  spirit  took  its 
flight,  he  left  Cornwall  Wednesday,  and  rode  six  miles  to  Deacon  Thomp- 
son's in  Goshen,  where  he  died  about  eight  o'clock  Thursday  morning, 
April  20,  1820,  aged  sixty-eight  years  and  three  months.  His  remains 
were  interred  on  Friday.  Mr.  Harvey  of  Goshen  preached  a  funeral 
sermon  from  the  sixth  chapter  of  Hebrews,  twelfth  verse.  The  epitaph 
on  his  tombstone  reads  thus : 

Forgive,  blest  shade,  the  tributary  tear 
That  mourns  thy  exit  from  a  world  like  this. 
Forgive  the  wish  that  would  have  kept  thee  here 
And  stay'd  thy  progress  to  the  seats  of  bliss. 
No  more  confined  to  groveling  scenes  of  night. 
No  more  a  tenant  pent  in  mortal  clay. 
Now  should  we  rather  hail  thy  glorious  flight, 
And  trace  thy  journey  to  the  realms  of  day. 

Some  years  ago  the  name  of  "Litchfield  South  Farms "  was  changed 
to  "  Morris,"  and  thus  the  township  becomes  James  Morris's  permanent 
memorial.

Maj.  Gen.  Morris  Woodruff,  eldest  son  of  James  and  Lucy  (Morris) 
Woodruff,  born  in  Litchfield,  September  3,  \^^^,  educated  at  Morris 
Academy  and  bred  a  merchant.  He  commenced  mercantile  life  with 
Messrs.  David  Leavitt  and  Simeon  Harrison  and  after  his  connection 
with  them  was  dissolved  he  prosecuted  the  business  chiefly  on  his  own 
account  for  many  years.  He  was  through  life  much  employed  as  ex- 
ecutor, administrator,  and  commissioner  in  settling  estates  and  as  arbi- 
trator, auditor,  and  committee  appointed  by  the  courts.  He  was  an 
active  and  influential  member  of  the  church  and  ecclesiastical  society  and 
of  the  community  generally  to  which  he  belonged;  repeatedly  discharged 
the  duties  of  various  public  offices ;  represented  the  town  of  Litchfield 
in  the  Legislature  fourteen  sessions,  and  was  magistrate  of  the  county 
26  years.     In  1818  he  was  appointed  Brig.  Gen.  of  the  6th  Brigade. 

In  1824  the  Legislature  appointed  him  Maj.  Gen.  of  the  3rd  division. 
From  1829  till  his  death,  a  period  of  11  years,  he  held  the  ofiice  of  a 
Judge  of  the  County  Court  and  of  Commissioner  which  succeeded  it, 
and  in  November,  1832,  he  was  chosen  by  the  voters  of  the  State  at 
large  an  elector  of  President  and  Vice  President  of  the  United  States. 
In  all  the  affairs  of  life  Gen.  Woodruff  was  distinguished  by  great 
activity,  energy,  perseverance,  accuracy  and  fidelity  to  whatever  trust 
he  assumed.  Of  high  integrity  himself,  he  was  stern  in  requiring  from 
others  observance  of  its  dictates.  Ready  to  do  justice  to  others,  keenly 
alive  to  every  sense  of  wrong,  penetrating  in  his  scrutiny  into  the  con- 
duct and  motives  of  others,  convincing  rather  than  persuasive  in  his 
intercourse  with  men,  he  impelled  their  concurrence  in  his  views  by 
producing  confidence  in  the  soundness  of  his  judgment  and  the  correct- 
ness of  his  purposes.  He  was  steadfast  in  his  friendships  and  few  men 
retain  with  equal  warmth  the  intimacies  begun  in  early  years.  The  asso- 
ciates of  his  boyhood  were  through  life  his  most  confiding  and  devoted 
friends.  The  dependence  of  his  neighbors  and  friends  on  him  for  advice 
and  assistance  was  very  great,  and  their  confidence  was  never  abused, 
their  reliance  never  failed,  and  so  his  means  of  usefulness  among  them 
were  large  and  his  influence  extensive.  In  his  domestic  relations  he 
was  affectionate  and  kind,  inflexible  in  retaining  a  high  standard  of 
both  filial  and  parental  duty,  and  he  never  failed  to  show  that  the  highest 
good  of  those  who  were  dependent  upon  him  was  his  invariable  motive 
in  all  his  intercourse  with  them.  Gen.  Woodruff  was  nearly  six  feet

in  height,  stout,  erect,  active  and  of  more  than  ordinary  physical 
strength,  of  robust  and  vigorous  frame  and  sound  constitution,  but  a 
severe  iUness  resuUed  in  his  death  at  his  home  in  Litchfield  on  the 
17th  of  May,  1840,  illustrating  in  his  dying  hour  the  peace  and  consola- 
tion of  the  Christian's  hope  and  confidence  in  the  Saviour  in  whose 
church  on  earth  he  had  been  numbered  for  many  years.  His  remains 
were  interred  in  East  Burying  Ground,  where  a  handsome  monument 
has  been  erected  to  his  memory.  Gen.  Woodruff  married,  November  21, 
1804,  Candace  Catlin,  eldest  daughter  of  Lewis  Catlin,  Esq.,  of  Harwinton,

Hon.  George  Catlin  Woodruff,  of  Litchfield,  Conn.,  eldest  son  of  Gen. 
Morris  Woodruff  and  Candace  Catlin,  born  South  Farms,  December  i, 
1805,  fitted  for  college  in  the  then  famous  Morris  Academy  and  entering 
Yale  in  1821,  graduated  among  the  foremost  scholars  of  his  class.  He 
studied  his  profession  under  Judge  Gould  of  the  Litchfield  Law  School 
and  decided  to  practice  his  profession  in  Litchfield.  He  was  admitted 
to  the  Bar  in  1827  and  early  took  a  leading  position,  rising  till  he  became 
the  acknowledged  head  of  the  Litchfield  County  Bar.  Early  sought  out 
by  his  fellow  citizens  for  offices  of  public  trust  —  justice  of  the  peace, 
grand  juror,  postmaster,  town  treasurer,  town  clerk,  director  and  presi- 
dent of  banks.  Clerk  of  the  Superior  Court,  Colonel  in  the  Militia,  mem- 
ber and  Clerk  of  the  General  Assembly,  Judge  of  Probate  and  member 
of  Congress  —  he  performed  the  duties  of  each  with  rigid  exactness  and 
scrupulous  integrity.  As  a  lawyer  he  was  prominent  in  those  branches 
where  certainty  is  possible.  It  was  in  the  trial  of  questions  of  law,  the 
drier  and  more  abstruse  the  better,  that  his  most  consummate  skill 
was  shown.  In  his  personal  character  he  was  the  embodiment  of  the 
best  elements  of  Puritanism.  In  his  intercourse  with  his  fellow  men 
he  was  quiet,  unobtrusive,  reserved ;  he  was  of  that  honesty  that  loathes 
dishonesty,  of  that  truth  that  hates  a  lie,  of  that  manliness  that  despises 
a  sham.  In  early  life  he  married  a  sister  of  the  late  Chief  Justice 
Seymour  and  Judge  Seymour  married  the  only  sister  of  Mr.  Woodruff. 
Side  by  side  they  lived  and  practiced  their  profession.  Mr.  Woodruff 
died  at  Litchfield  on  the  21st  of  November,  1885.  As  citizen,  as  neigh- 
bor, in  private  life  or  public  station,  as  counsellor  or  judge,  he  was  one 
of  the  best  products  of  our  American  civilization.

Hon.  Lewis  Bartholomew  Woodruff,  LL.D.,  second  son  of  Gen. 
Morris  Woodruff  and  Candace  Catlin,  born  June  19,  1809.  Graduated  at 
Yale  College  with  high  honors  in  1830,  received  his  legal  education  at 
the  then  famous  Litchfield  Law  School,  removed  in  fall  of  1832  to  New 
York  City,  where  he  practiced  his  profession  of  the  law  until  1850,  when 
he  began  his  distinguished  judicial  career,  and  held  successively  the 
offices  of  Judge  of  the  New  York  Court  of  Common  Pleas,  Judge  of  the 
New  York  Superior  Court,  Judge  of  the  State  Court  of  Appeals,  and 
Judge  of  the  United  States  Circuit  Court  for  the  States  of  New  York, 
Connecticut  and  Vermont,  which  position  he  filled  at  the  time  of  his 
death,  September  10,  1875.  In  i860,  Columbia  College  conferred  upon 
him  the  honorary  degree  of  Doctor  of  Laws. 

His  great  learning,  his  remarkable  power  of  analysis  and  his  deep 
discernment  and  excellent  judgment,  made  him  invaluable  and  most 
highly  esteemed  as  a  Counselor,  while  these  qualities  of  mind,  reinforced 
by  habits  of  profound  study  and  indefatigable  industry  insured  his  high 
reputation  on  the  Bench  during  his  whole  judicial  career.  Of  fine  pres- 
ence, dignified  in  his  bearing,  and  exacting  the  respect  which  was  his 
due,  he  was  in  the  family  circle  tender  and  affectionate,  everywhere  gen- 
erous, kind  and  helpful.  Genial  and  cordial,  his  loving  welcome,  hos- 
pitable board  and  ever-open  door  kept  warm  hearts  constantly  about  him, 
and  he  died  esteemed,  revered  and  beloved  as  few  men  are.  He  married, 
November  4,  1835,  Harriette  Burnet  Hornblower,  of  Newark,  N.  J.,  daugh- 
ter of  Hon.  Joseph  Courten  Hornblower,  LL.D.,  Chief  Justice  of  that 
State.     She  died  April  5,  1868.

Benjamin  Smith,  Jr.,  son  of  Benjamin  Smith  and  Lydia  Gates,  born 
April  17,  1783,  died  1810.  He  went  on  board  his  ship,  having  bidden  his 
family  good-bye  and  expecting  to  sail  immediately.  The  ship,  how- 
ever, did  not  sail  as  expected,  and  the  first  mate,  Benj.  Smith,  found 
he  would  have  time  to  see  his  family  once  more  before  leaving  the  port, 
so  he  hastened  home  and  surprised  them.  When  they  said  good-bye 
the  second  time,  they  saw  him  for  the  last  time.  The  ship  sailed  from 
New  Haven  with  a  cargo  composed  in  part  of  horses.  On  the  voyage 
a  severe  storm  was  encountered  and  horses  were  thrown  overboard  to 
lighten  the  ship.  It  was  during  this  storm  that  Benj.  Smith  was  washed 
overboard.  The  ship  continued  on  her  way  with  the  remainder  of  the 
cargo.     This    was    on   January    20,    1810,    when    the   only   child    of   Benj.

258        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

3024 
THE  BEECHER  RECORD 

The  Beechers  of  this  country  are  descended  chiefly  from  one  emi- 
grant ancestor.  The  English  Beechers  were  landholders  in  Speldhurst, 
County  of  Kent,  England.  One  of  the  family,  John  (3024)  by  name, 
with  his  wife,  Hannah,  and  their  son  Isaac  (3025),  came  to  America 
with  Pastor  Davenport  and  his  church  colony,  arriving  at  Boston,  June 
26,  1637,  in  two  vessels.  Some  time  in  September,  one  of  the  vessels 
sailed  on  a  voyage  of  exploration  to  find  a  location  outside  of  all  the 
other  colonies  and  outside  of  all  English  jurisdiction.  Quenappeac,  now 
New  Haven  (or  the  New  Harbour)  was  selected  and  the  whole  colony, 
numbering  about  130  persons,  removed  to  their  New  Haven  home  in 
March,  1638.  Seven  men  of  the  niunber  who  sailed  with  the  exploring 
expedition  in  September,  mentioned  previously,  remained  during  the  win- 
ter to  prepare  dwellings  for  the  colony  on  their  arrival,  one  of  whom 
was  (3024)  John  Beecher  (our  ancestor).  He  died  on  account  of  ex- 
posure and  was  the  first  white  man  buried  there.  He  left  a  widow, 
Hannah  Beecher,  and  one  son  (3025)  Isaac  (2d  gen.),  then  about  fourteen 
years  old.  He  married  and  had  children,  five  of  them  being  sons,  all 
of  whose  names  are  known.  One  named  (3026)  Joseph  (3d  gen.,  our 
ancestor)  married  (second  wife)  a  Miss  Pomeroy,  by  whom  he  had 
seven  children.  (3027)  Nathaniel  (4th  gen.,  our  ancestor)  married  Miss 
Sarah  Sperry,  lived  at  New  Haven ;  was  a  blacksmith  by  occupation. 
Was  noted  for  his  height  —  six  feet  —  and  for  his  great  physical  powers, 
being  able,  as  the  tradition  of  his  time  tells  it,  "  to  lift  a  barrel  of  cider 
and  drink  out  of  the  bung-hole."  He  had  nine  children,  all  of  whom 
were  members  of  the  church  of  New  Haven.  He  died  at  New  Haven, 
was  buried  in  the  Old  Cemetery,  and  at  that  time  the  only,  burial  ground 
on  the  "upper  green."  The  head-stone  now  stands  in  the  Grove  Street 
burial  ground. 

3028 
David  Beecher  (5th  gen.,  our  ancestor),  who  married  Lydia  Morris 
(2998),  was  the  son  of  Nathaniel  Beecher  (3027)  and  Sarah  Sperry. 
He  was  born  at  New  Haven  in  1738;  was  short  of  stature,  measuring 
only  five  feet,  seven  and  one-half  inches.  His  occupation  was  the  same 
as  that  of  his  father.  He  inherited  his  father's  great  strength.  He  was 
married  five  times.  His  first  wife  was  Mary  Hoadley,  of  New  Haven, 
who  died  January  5,  1770,  aged  thirty  years.  His  second  wife  was  (2998) 
Lydia  Morris,  of  Morris  Point,  East  Haven,  Conn.  By  his  third  wife, 
Esther  Hawley  Lyman,  he  had  one  son,  the  celebrated  Lyman  Beecher, 
born  1775,  died  1863.

JOHN  LYMAN  BEECHER 
John  Lyman  Beecher,  son  of  Charles  Morris  Beecher  and  his  first 
wife,  Sarah  Sage,  was  born  in  New  Marlborough,  Mass.,  May  6,  1828, 
married  Huldah  Maria  Ailing,  of  Norfolk,  Conn.,  October  14,  1855,  at 
East  Granville.  She  was  born  on  December  17,  1827.  He  went  to 
California  in  1855  and  bought  640  acres  of  land,  near  Stockton,  to 
which  he  afterwards  added  320  acres  more.  He  owned  a  beautiful  home 
in  Stockton,  where  they  lived  for  more  than  twenty  years.  The  children 
were  educated  and  spent  their  vacations  there.  Mr.  Beecher  was  presi- 
dent of  a  grain  corporation  for  many  years,  but  his  business  increased 
till  it  became  too  great  a  burden  and  his  health  failing,  he  resigned; 
sold  the  city  home  and  went  back  to  the  ranch,  six  miles  from  the 
city.     Obituary  notice  of  his  death: 

"John  L.  Beecher,  Sr.,  died  January  12,  1899,  at  three  o'clock  at 
his  residence,  east  of  Stockton,  where  he  had  been  confined  to  his  bed 
for  the  past  four  weeks.  The  deceased  was  perhaps  better  known  in 
this  county  than  any  of  the  old  residents.  He  was  born  in  Massachu- 
setts seventy  years  ago  and  was  one  of  the  earliest  settlers  of  this 
country.  He  was  the  owner  of  large  tracts  of  land  in  this  as  well  as 
Merced  and  Stanislaus  counties  and  was  a  leading  spirit  in  many  enter- 
prises in  which  farmers  of  this  county  were  interested.  Mr.  Beecher 
leaves  a  family  consisting  of  Mrs.  Beecher,  John  L,  Jr.,  Elliott  S.  and 
Charles  Beecher,  and  Mrs.  Walter  F.  Sibley.  He  had  been  troubled 
on  account  of  his  heart  for  the  past  three  or  four  years  and  had  not  been 
strong  during  any  of  that  time.  The  funeral  was  held  from  the  residence 
on  Saturday  afternoon  at  11  o'clock  and  the  remains  were  brought  to 
Stockton  by  way  of  the  Linden  road  for  interment  at  Rural  Cemetery."

of  the  family  and  living  near  her  mother,  who  lived  alone  in  the  old 
homestead  and  could  not  be  persuaded  to  leave  it,  it  naturally  fell  to 
her  to  care  for  her  mother,  which  she  did  very  tenderly  to  the  last. 
Her  sister,  Mrs.  Wolcott,  speaks  of  her  as  being  one  of  the  most  con- 
scientious, frank  and  generous-hearted  of  all  the  sisters.  Her  husband

OBITUARY 

"William  Groesbeeck  died  at  his  home  on  Maple  Avenue,  Sunday 
evening  at  half  past  seven  o'clock.  His  death  followed  an  illness  of 
several  weeks  and  was  a  general  giving  away  of  the  system  from  the 
feebleness  of  old  age.  William  Groesbeeck  was  born  at  Little  Falls, 
N.  Y.,  February  2,  1818,  and  was  therefore  eighty-three  years  old.  He 
was  reared  in  New  York  and  for  a  time  was  engaged  in  mercantile 
pursuits.  His  fine  instinct  for  business  took  him  to  Texas  while  still 
a  young  man,  and  here  he  met  with  great  success  and  became  one  of  the 
leading  business  men  of  Texas.  He  owned  a  fine  home,  and  was  con- 
sidered a  wealthy  man.  He  lived  in  the  South  until  after  the  Civil  War, 
when  he  came  to  Sedalia,  Mo.,  and  lived  there  for  several  years,  being 
called  to  Independence  about  1875  to  take  charge  of  the  Presbyterian 
College.  He  was  president  of  this  institution  for  two  years  and  re- 
mained after,  a  citizen  of  Independence,  engaging  in  the  mercantile 
business  with  J.  S.  Mott;  afterwards  with  A.  J.  Bundschu,  helping  in 
the  business  which  has  now  become  the  largest  in  Independence  and  is 
still  conducted  by  Mr.  Bundschu.  He  was  appointed  postmaster  by 
President  Cleveland,  during  his  first  administration,  and  served  here  for 
four  years,  giving  the  city  of  Independence  a  business  administration  and 
making  a  record  with  the  department  at  Washington  which  few  post- 
masters have  made.  For  the  past  several  years,  Mr.  Groesbeeck  has 
been  agent  for  the  Metropolitan  Railway  Company,  at  Independence,  and 
up  to  the  time  he  was  eighty-three  years  of  age,  was  always  at  his  post, 
accurate  and  methodical,  with  a  pleasant  word  of  greeting  for  his  friends 
and  strict  attention  to  every  duty.  In  1858,  Mr.  Groesbeeck  was  married 
to  Mrs.  Tyer,  a  sister  of  Judge  John  F.  Phillips  of  the  Federal  Court, 
who  still  survives  him.  They  have  three  living  children,  Miss  Lizzie 
Groesbeeck,  Miss  Celia  Groesbeeck  and  Fred  Groesbeeck,  all  of  whom 
were  at  home  at  the  time  of  his  death.  Mr.  Groesbeeck  had  two  daugh- 
ters of  a  former  marriage,  who  live  in  the  South,  Mrs.  Maria  Chapman, 
of   Berwick,  La.,   and  Mrs.   M.   E.   Green,   of  Opelika,   Ala.     Within  the 


FULLER  FAMILY  275 

past  year,  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Groesbeeck  spent  several  weeks  in  the  South,  and 
while  they  were  there,  a  reunion  of  the  family  was  held,  at  which  were 
present  four  generations,  Mr.  Groesbeeck,  his  daughter,  her  daughter  and 
two  grandchildren.  A  picture  showing  the  four  generations  was  brought 
home  by  Mr.  Groesbeeck  and  greatly  prized.  William  Groesbeeck  lived 
a  remarkable  life  and  developed  a  character  which  met  every  hardship 
with  hope,  every  new  emergency  with  a  smile,  and  every  adversity  with 
Christian  fortitude.  He  was  a  perfect  Christian  gentleman  in  his  every 
action.  An  omnivorous  reader,  his  reading  was  well  selected  and  thor- 
oughly assimilated  until  he  was  among  the  best  informed  of  men  on  all 
subjects  of  current  thought.  He  retained  many  beautiful  thoughts,  both 
from  the  best  prose  and  poetry,  in  his  wonderful  memory,  and  delighted 
to  quote  appropriate  selections  to  his  friends.  His  soul  was  full  of  sun- 
shine and  poetry  and  the  pleasures  of  his  knowledge  he  loved  to  share 
with  his  friends.  A  delightful  companion  always,  for  his  mind  was 
young  and  bright,  his  thoughts  pure  and  happy.  Mr.  Groesbeeck  was 
an  optimist  and  met  misfortune  with  great  courage.  He  surveyed  the 
mistakes  which  resulted  in  loss  and  put  them  behind  him  as  things  of  the 
past,  turning  resolutely  to  the  future  with  a  firm  belief  that  the  right 
would  prevail  and  that  all  things  were  ordered  for  the  best.  His  religion 
was  a  simple,  sincere  belief  and  there  was  nothing  terrible  in  his  God. 
He  was  to  him  a  God  of  love  and  tender  care  for  those  who  trusted  in 
Him.  William  Groesbeeck  was  a  good  citizen,  a  devoted  husband,  a 
loving  father  and  a  Christian  gentleman." 

The  following  is  an  extract  from  a  letter  written  to  Mrs.  L.  A.  Car- 
hart,  December  22,  1899: 

"  As  you  are  only  recording  the  descendants  of  the  Morris-Fuller  side,, 
it  is  unnecessary  to  detail  my  second  marriage.  I  will  be  eighty-two 
on  the  second  of  February  next,  and  am  still  engaged  in  active  business, 
enjoy  good  health  and  pleasant  family  surroundings.  In  my  boyhood 
days,  Syracuse  and  Onondaga  Hollow  were  attractive  spots  for  me  to 
visit.  My  two  uncles  on  my  mother's  side,  William  H.  Alexander  and 
Willet  Raynor,  lived  in  Syracuse,  and  my  grandfather,  Rev.  Caleb  Alex- 
ander, was  pastor  of  the  Presbyterian  Church  at  Onondaga  Hollow.  To 
my  boyish  mind,  his  farm  was  the  Garden  of  Eden,  and  grandmother's 
house  the  ideal  of  hospitality  and  good  cheer  to  all  her  grandchildren. 
The  meadow  and  creek  running  through  it  was  our  playground,  and  all 
the  surroundings  of  that  dear  old  spot  are  still  photographed  on  my  mem- 
ory; but  pardon  this  digression,  your  letter  evoked  the  memory  of  days 
seventy  odd  years  ago."

hell,  daughter  of  Evan  Shelby  Campbell  and  Margaret  (Byers)  Campbell, 
of  Aberdeen,  O.,  born   February  9,   1807.     He   died   May  26,   1873.     He 


HUTCHINS  LINE  287 

was  a  prosperous  lumber  merchant,  a  magistrate,  once  mayor  of  the  city 
and  official  member  of  the  M.  E.  Church,  and  for  half  a  century  was  a 
prominent  citizen  of  Marysville,  Ky.  His  wife,  Evelina,  died  March  i, 
1S95.  Her  grandparents  emigrated  from  Washington,  Pa.,  just  after  the 
Revolutionary  war;  also  her  husband's  parents.  One  of  his  grandfathers 
served  in  a  Pennsylvania  regiment  during  the  Revolution,  and  was  one 
of  the  augurants,  also  his  other  grandfather,  Evan  Shelby,  who  went 
from  Limestone  (now  Maysville)  to  lay  out  Cincinnati.  Mrs.  Hutchins 
for  seventy-six  years  was  a  constant  member  of  the  M.  E.  Church  of 
Maysville,  Ky.  Her  father,  Evan  Campbell,  contributed  the  timber  for 
the  first  M.  E.  Church  in  that  city.  She  saw  the  first  steamboat  that 
came  up  the  Ohio  river.  She  was  one  of  the  young  girls  who  ranged 
in  line  to  sing  a  welcome  to  LaFayette  as  he  entered  Maysville  when  he 
visited  the  United  States.  Her  father's  land  on  the  Ohio  side  of  the 
river  was  nearly  opposite  that  of  Mayor  Pelham  on  the  Kentucky  side. 
LaFayette  threw  his  arms  around  Mayor  Pelham  when  he  met  him  on 
this  occasion,  glad  to  see  again  his  old  comrade  in  arms.  Mrs.  Hutchins' 
mind  was  clear  to  the  last.  Just  before  she  died,  inquiries  coming  from 
branches  of  the  family  in  distant  States,  who  were  seeking  proof  of 
being  enlisted  to  membership  in  the  D.  A.  R.,  she  recalled  the  history  of 
her  father's  cousins,  Isaac  and  Benjamin  Shelby,  who  had  laid  out  Shelby- 
ville,  Ind. ;  told  of  visits  to  her  uncle  Shelby's  farm,  for  that  day  excep- 
tionally prosperous  and  improved,  and  brought  out  for  the  first  time  a 
letter  yellowed  by  seventy  years'  time;  this  letter  contained  an  offer  of 
marriage  from  her  second  cousin,  Isaac  Shelby,  in  the  ceremonious  style 
of  Addison's  day.  We  have  this  old  letter  now.  When  asked  why  she 
did  not  marry  him,  she  replied :  "  Our  parents  objected  to  cousins 
marrying."  She  was  a  practical  Kentucky  housekeeper,  yet  she  read  con- 
tinuously until  she  was  greatly  above  the  average  in  general  knowledge 
and  intelligence.  Up  to  the  last  week  of  her  life,  she  kept  in  touch 
with  the  social  and  political  events  of  the  country.

of  honor,  tender,  manly  and  true,  a  peculiar  reticence,  an  innate  sensitive- 
ness, prevented  him  from  sounding  his  own  praises  and  only  those  who 
knew  him  best  appreciated  his  full  worth."

of  William  Chandler,  who  settled,  1637,  in  Roxbury,  Mass.  In  the  his- 
tory of  Roxbury,  it  is  stated  that  "  It  has  been  remarked  that  no  people 
can  boast  of  more  honorable  descent  than  those  of  Massachusetts."  Mr. 
Chandler  was  a  farmer  and  fruit  grower.  He  possessed  great  kindness 
of  heart;  was  sympathetic  and  always  ready  to  do  a  favor;  prudent  and 
careful.  His  memory  is  cherished  and  kindly  spoken  of  by  those  who

AMY  JANE  BRADLEY 

Amy  Jane  Bradley,  daughter  of  Gurdon  Bradley  and  Phebe  Smith, 
born  December  27,  1826,  married  IVillard  Hodges,  August  28,  1848. 
He  was  born  in  Torrington,  Conn.,  May  25,  1820,  and  died  July  5,  1889. 
After  Mr.  Hodges'  marriage,  he  spent  six  months  in  New  York,  and 
moved  to  Rochester,  N.  Y.,  where  they  spent  the  rest  of  their  days. 
Mr.  Hodges  was  a  public-spirited  man,  who  occupied  positions  of  trust 
in  the  community.  He  was  elected  member  of  Assembly  from  his  dis- 
trict in  1876-77. 

The  Rochester  Democrat  and  Chronicle  of  July  6,  1889,  announces 
the  death  of  Willard  Hodges  of  that  city,  a  native  of  Torrington,  Conn. 
We  quote  its  sketch  of  him: 

"  Willard  Hodges  died  yesterday  morning  at  his  home,  corner  of 
Highland  and  Pinnacle  Avenues.  The  deceased  was  about  69  years 
of  age.  He  entered  Williams  College  when  16  or  17  years  of  age,  and 
remained  there  until  his  junior  year.  He  then  went  to  Yale,  where 
he  graduated  in  1845.  Mr.  Hodges  took  a  very  active  part  in  public 
affairs  for  many  years.  He  was  a  Republican  in  politics  and  repre- 
sented his  assembly  district  in  the  state  legislature  during  the  winters  of 
'76,  '77-  He  also  served  his  party  and  the  public  in  other  offices  and 
was    at   one    time    a   member    of    the    Board    of    Supervisors.     He    was 


GURDON  BRADLEY  RECORD        313 

formerly  president  of  the  Monroe  County  Agricultural  Society.  Mr. 
Hodges  was  a  pleasing  speaker  and  writer  and  contributed  many  articles 
to  the  newspapers  and  other  current  literature." 

"  Mrs.  Jane  A.  Hodges  died  June  25,  1898,  at  her  home  on  Highland 
Avenue.  Mrs.  Hodges  was  born  at  Fairfield,  N.  Y.,  in  1826,  and  was 
married  at  the  home  of  her  childhood,  to  Hon.  Willard  Hodges,  who 
served  as  representative  in  the  New  York  State  legislature  in  the  years 
1876  and  1877.  In  1849,  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Hodges  took  up  their  residence 
near  Rochester,  and  have  since  been  actively  connected  with  the  ma- 
terial and  spiritual  development  of  the  city.  Mrs.  Hodges  was  among 
the  early  members  of  Plymouth  Congregational  Church  and  later  united 
with  the  Central  Presbyterian  Church.  Anxious  to  do  religious  work 
in  her  own  neighborhood,  she  urged  the  organization  of  Mt.  Hor 
Presbyterian  Church,  of  which  she  was  a  charter  member  and  was 
chosen  as  the  most  suitable  person  to  lay  the  cornerstone  of  the  new 
church  building. 

"  She  leaves  four  daughters,  Mrs.  W.  F.  Clapp,  Miss  Amy  M.  Hodges, 
Miss  M.  Louise  Hodges  and  Miss  Fanny  L.  Hodges,  and  a  son.  Rev. 
Alpheus   C.   Hodges. 

"  For  more  than  forty  years  Mrs.  Hodges  has  been  connected  with  the 
Sunday  school  in  Cobb's  hill  school  house,  and  has  given  spiritual 
instruction  and  help  to  a  large  circle  who  have  since  occupied  positions 
of  usefulness  and  trust.    The  children  and  poor  have  lost  a  friend."

RECORD  OF  AMOS  MORRIS,  2ND 

Lieutenant  Amos  Morris,  2nd,  born  March  13,  1750,  inherited,  in  an 
eminent  degree,  the  many  excellent  qualities  of  his  father,  occupied  the 
same  ancestral  acres  and  succeeded  to  the  same  trusts  in  civic  life  and  in 
the  church.  He  married  Betsey  Woodward,  the  second  daughter  of 
Richard  Woodward  and  Susan  De  Luce.  It  may  be  interesting  to  the 
descendants  of  this  branch  of  the  Morris  family  to  note  that  the  wife 
of  Amos  Morris  was  the  granddaughter  of  two  clergymen,  the  one  on 
her  father's  side  and  the  other  on  her  mother's  side.  The  former  was 
Rev.  John  Woodward,  who  graduated  at  Harvard  in  1693,  was  ordained 
pastor  in  Norwich,  Conn.,  in  1699,  and  assisted  in  compiling  the  Say- 
brook  platform  in  1708.  The  other  was  Rev.  M.  De  Luce,  ejected  from 
France  by  persecution  and  brought  to  this  country,  probably  soon  after 
the  year  1724.  The  following  tradition,  received  only  at  second  hand 
from  the  daughter  of  Rev.  M.  De  Luce,  affirms  that  for  the  crime  of 
preaching  the  gospel,  he  was  sentenced  to  death  by  starvation  in  France 
and  confined  in  a  county  prison  without  food  in  execution  of  the  sen- 
tence; but  the  hand  of  Divine  Providence  interposed  for  his  rescue.  A 
hen  came  and  laid  her  egg  daily  near  the  prison  wall,  where  there  hap- 
pened to  be  a  hole  of  sufficient  size  to  admit  of  his  drawing  the  egg 
through  it,  thus  furnishing  him  a  wholesome,  though  scanty,  meal.  His 
enemies  were  amazed  at  his  continued  life  and  health.  Their  supersti- 
tion was  aroused,  they  felt  that  unseen  agencies  were  enlisted  for  his 
preservation  and  against  these  it  might  not  be  safe  for  them  to  contend. 
They  devised  another  method  of  securing  his  destruction,  without  put- 
ting him  to  a  violent  death.  They  placed  him  in  a  small  open  boat  and 
set  him  adrift  with  the  wind  blowing  off  the  shore.  In  this  condition 
he  was  taken  up  by  a  vessel  and  brought  to  America.  The  rigors  of 
the  persecution  that  raged  after  the  repeal  of  the  Edict  of  Nantes,  were 
much  abated  at  the  beginning  of  the  i8th  century,  so  that  Protestant 
ministers  ventured  to  gather  assemblies  for  worship  and  preach  the 
reformed  doctrines,  but  in  the  year  1724  the  dissolute  Louis  XV  issued 


3i6         GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

an  edict  menacing  Protestant  ministers  with  death  and  their  abettors 
with  imprisonment  or  the  labors  of  galley  slaves.  This  corresponds 
well  with  the  time  when  he  should  have  arrived  in  America. 

Richard  Woodward,  who  married  his  daughter,  was  born  in  the  year 
1 716,  and  died  July  28,  1795.  The  daughter  of  Richard  was  married 
about  the  year  1779,  and  at  an  early  age;  hence  it  is  probable  he  him- 
self was  married  late,  probably  after  the  year  1755,  when  he  was  past 
forty.  This  might  bring  the  birth  of  his  wife,  Susan  De  Luce,  about 
1730  to  173s,  as  soon  as  her  father  would,  in  the  ordinary  course  of 
things,  have  acquired  the  English  language  and  become  established  in 
the  ministry  in  America.  Tradition  locates  him  in  the  Massachusetts 
Colony,  place  unknown.  His  name  does  not  appear  among  the  clergy 
of  Boston. 

Amos  Morris,  2nd,  third  child  of  Amos  Morris,  ist,  and  Lydia  (Camp) 
Morris,  born  March  13,  1750,  married  Betsey  Woodward,  as  early  as  the 
year  1779.

Alfred  Woodward  Morris,  son  of  Amos  Morris,  3rd,  and  Charlotte 
Northrup,  born  February  13,  1812,  was  located  on  the  paternal  estate. 
Several  years  of  his  youth  were  spent  in  the  city  of  Albany.  In  1836 
he  went  to  Michigan  and  thence  to  Wisconsin,  where  he  purchased  a 
farm.  After  some  nine  or  ten  years'  residence  in  Wisconsin,  he  re- 
turned to  relieve  his  father  of  the  cares  and  labors  of  the  farm,  which 
were  becoming  too  great  for  his  advanced  years.  He  married  Emily 
L.  Cowles,  of  Berlin,  Conn.,  October  25,  1840.

Elizabeth  Mansfield  (Rutty)  Bolles,  of  Clinton,  Conn.,  who  died  May 
30,  1887.  She  was  a  daughter  of  Jonah  Rutty,  who  died  December  21, 
1819,  aged  seventy-seven  years  (son  of  Edward  and  Mary  Rutty,  of 
Killingworth),  and  Mary  Huntington,  who  died  January  18,  1854,  aged 
eighty-three  (daughter  of  Rev.  Eliphalet  Huntington  and  Sarah  Elliot). 
Her  first  marriage  was  to  Asa  M.  Bolles,  Esq.,  who  died  September, 
1834,  and  left  her  with  two  children,  David  A.  Bolles  (Y.  C.  1850),  and

was  proficient  in  Greek,  often  led  classes  in  this  language,  and  at  one 
time  gave  instruction  in  Andover  Seminary,  when  it  was  without  a 
Greek  Professor.  He  was,  also  a  zealous  student  of  natural  science,  and

terest, he  promoted  philosophical  studies,  and  was  for  many  years  the 
president  of  a  Plato  Club.  He  was  long  a  member  of  the  school  board, 
and  filled  many  positions  of  responsibility  and  trust.  Few  men  have

the  following:  "Youth  the  Most  Hopeful  Season  with  Communities,"

tion, by  G.  S.  Dickerman.  The  following  stanzas  were  contributed  by 
Dr.  Owen  Street,  as  a  substitute  for  his  own  presence  in  person  at  the 
first  family  gathering  in  1850: 


RECORD  OF  AMOS  MORRIS,  2ND  325 

"  Welcome  the  spell  that  enchains  us  here, 
This  spell  of  two  centuries  weaving; 
Welcome  these  scenes  to  our  hearts  so  dear, 
And  relics  of  other  days'  leaving. 

"  This  home  of  our  sires,  these  ancient  halls. 
This  well-chosen  spot  of  their  finding; 
These  moss-grown  ledges  and  old  stone  walls, 
This  lane  o'er  its  rocky  bed  winding; 

"  This  sloping  mead  by  the  beachy  cove ; 

Yon  point,  with  the  tide  round  it  pouring; 
That  rock-bound  shore,  yon  light-house  grove 
And  the  briny  sea  with  its  roaring ; 

"  These  all  have  charms  to  entrance  our  eyes, 
A  voice  that  its  pure  tone  is  lending, 
To  utter  afresh  the  names  we  prize. 
Their  worth  with  their  memory  blending. 

"  They  bring  to  our  minds  the  sainted  dead. 
The  holy  memories  here  presiding; 
The  light  from  their  pure  example  shed 
Like  a  star  hung  out  for  our  guiding. 

"  For  conscience  sake,  for  the  church  of  God, 
For  truth  that  proved  tyrants  were  crushing. 
Dissevered  from  home,  these  wilds  they  trod, 
With  warm  tears  for  that  home  still  gushing. 

"  They  trod  these  fields,  they  breathed  this  air. 
These  scenes,  they,  like  us,  were  beholding 
When  the  wolf  fiercely  howled  from  his  lair 
And  sachems  their  councils  were  holding. 

"  Leap  then  the  pulse  of  ancestral  pride, 
And  loud  be  the  note  we  are  sounding; 
Be  the  God  of  our  fathers  our  guide. 
Our  mark,  the  high  goal  they're  surrounding."

POEM    COxMPOSED    BY    OWEN    STREET'S    GRANDDAUGHTER. 
AGED  NINE  YEARS 

Years  ago  the  Revolution 

Raged  in  fury  o'er  the  land, 
O'er  this  country  swarmed  the  British, 

And  they  fought  our  small  brave  band. 

At  that  time,  in  fair  East  Haven, 

With  the  goodly  harbor  nigh, 
Lived  my  old  grandfather  Morris, 

And  some  ships  he  did  espy. 

They  had  come  to  sack  the  city, 

And  it  filled  him  with  affright, 
And  he  thought  and  thought  then 

What  he'd  do  when  it  came  night. 


RECORD  OF  AMOS  MORRIS,  2ND  327 

Now  he  had  a  voice  tremendous, 

Far  and  near  it  did  resound, 
And  the  air  was  filled  with  echoes 

Almost  for  a  mile  around; 

And  he  went  down  to  the  seashore 

Where  the  waves  wash  up  the  sand. 
Ordering  troops  imaginary, 

Trying  thus  to  save  the  land. 

And  the  British  heard  his  orders 

Ringing  through  the  evening  air. 
And  they  thought  that  a  large  body 

Of  Americans  was  there. 

So  they  turned  their  ships  all  seaward 

And  they  sailed  them  off  so  fast, 
That  when  once  the  sun  had  risen 

Grandpa  could  not  see  a  mast.

"Assistant  Demonstrator  at  Yale  and  successful  physician  at  age  of  34. 

"The  subject  of  this  sketch  is  one  of  the  younger,  but  thoroughly 
valued  instructors  at  the  Yale  Medical  School,  Dr.  Leonard  C.  Sanford. 
In  the  class  room  Dr.  Sanford  is  particularly  successful,  for  he  im- 
presses his  hearers  with  the  realization  that  he  thoroughly  understands 
his  topic. 

"  Dr.  Sanford  comes  honestly  by  his  knowledge  of  medicine  and 
anatomy,  through  the  fact  that  he  is  a  son  of  the  late  Dr.  Leonard 
J.  Sanford,  who  until  his  death  was  one  of  New  Haven's  leading 
practitioners.  The  elder  Sanford  was  regarded  as  one  of  the  best 
physicians  in  New  Haven  and  vicinity,  and  the  son  has  fallen  into  a. 
large  share  of  his  practice. 

"  Extreme  modesty  is  one  of  Dr.  Sanford's  chief  characteristics.  He 
is  a  native  of  New  Haven  and  has  spent  all  his  life  here.  He  entered 
Yale  in  1886  and  was  graduated  from  the  academic  department  in  1890. 
Three  years  later  he  received  his  diploma  from  the  Yale  Medical  School. 
His  worth  was  recognized  by  the  faculty  of  the  school  not  many  years 
later  and  he  was  made  instructor  in  the  subject  of  obstetrics."

Van  Loben  Sels  and  Adele  Virginia  de  Fremery,  was  born  at  the  Grove 
in  Oakland,  Cal.,  July  26,  1881. 

A  little  history  of  the  Van  Loben  Sels  family  may  be  interesting  to 
the  readers  of  this  work.  Peter  Justus  Van  Loben  Sels,  born  in  Zulphen, 
Holland,  in  1851,  was  the  son  of  Jacob  Van  Loben  Sels  of  Zulphen, 
Holland,  who  married  Louisa  Devering.  Their  son,  Peter  Justus  Van 
Loben  Sels,  was  born  in  Zulphen,  Holland,  in  1851.  Peter  Justus  Van 
Loben  Sels  was  Consul  to  the  Netherlands  nine  years,  knighted  by  Wil- 
liam HI  of  Holland ;  made  an  officer  of  the  Order  of  Eikin  Kroon 
Caken  (Crown),  graduated  as  Doctor  of  Law  at  the  University  of 
Utrecht  in  1878.  Admitted  to  the  San  Francisco  bar,  December,  1879. 
He  married  Adele  Virginia  de  Fremery,  born  in  San  Francisco,  in  1857. 
She  was  the  daughter  of  James  de  Fremery  and  Virginie  Theresa  Hecken- 
rath,  who  were  married  in  Holland,  1853. 


LUCY  MORRIS  RECORD  347 

James  de  Fremery  (above  mentioned)  came  to  California  in  1849  to 
make  arrangements  for  starting  an  importing  house,  which  he  accom- 
plished in  1850.  It  was  located  on  Battery  Street.  It  was  burned  during 
the  earthquake  and  fire  of  1906.  He  died  May  28,  1898.  His  brother 
William  is  now  (1908)  at  the  head  of  the  new  house  on  Montgomery 
Street.  He  was  also  the  founder  of  the  San  Francisco  Savings  Union 
on  Calyovinia  Street,  corner  of  Webb,  and  was  its  president  for  twenty- 
five  years.  He  was  made  a  Knight  of  the  Order  of  Netherlands  Lion 
by  William  III  of  Holland. 

Peter  Justus  van  Loben  Sels  reclaimed  District  No.  551  on  the  Sac- 
ramento River  in  California,  a  tract  of  nine  thousand  acres,  beginning 
work  in  1881.  The  tract  was  mostly  water,  fourteen  feet  deep,  a  lake 
with  a  few  rods  of  marshy  land  as  border,  which  was  covered  with  reeds. 
The  levees  were  so  damaged  during  the  flooding  of  the  Sacramento 
River  in  April,  1907,  that  the  tract  was  submerged,  causing  a  loss  of 
everything  thereon.    The  break  in  the  levees  was  repaired.

SARAH  MORRIS  RECORD 

(Continued  from  p.  348) 
The  second  marriage  of  Sarah  Morris  was  to  Edward  Brockway,  of 
Branford,  Conn.  A  little  history  of  her  second  marriage  may  be  in- 
teresting to  the  reader:  After  the  death  of  her  first  husband,  Gersham 
Scott,  she  returned  to  her  father.  How  long  she  remained  a  widow 
we  do  not  know,  but  we  do  know  that  when  late  one  night  Edward 
Brockway  came  a-wooing,  he  not  only  received  her  father's  consent,  but 
his  blessing  and  (we  judge)  God-speed.  She  was  called,  they  became 
engaged  and  the  wedding  day  was  appointed  that  night ;  carrying  things 
at  a  lively  rate  for  that  slow-going  age.  Whether  it  was  love  at  first 
sight,  her  father's  admonition  to  accept  a  good  offer,  or  the  thought 
of  the  eight  brothers  and  sisters  younger  than  herself  for  whom  her 
father  had  to  provide,  with  the  added  burden  of  herself  and  little  one, 
that  caused  her  so  speedily  to  make  up  her  mind,  we  cannot  tell,  but 
will  leave  it  for  each  one  to  decide.  He  was  three  times  a  widower 
with  twelve  children  and  three  step-children,  hers  making  the  fourth. 
Tradition  does  not  say  her  heart  sank  at  the  prospect,  but  we,  looking 
at  it  from  the  standpoint  of  the  present  day,  would  judge  so.  The 
date  of  their  marriage  was  thought  to  be  the  year  1785.  They  lived 
a  few  years  in  Branford,  then  moved  to  Hartland ;  remained  there  about 
fourteen  years.  Four  daughters  were  born  to  them.  Hearing  of  the 
wonders  of  the  New  Connecticut,  thinking  also  of  his  large  family  of 
sons  and  daughters,  and  trying  to  solve  the  problem  how  to  provide 
homes  for  all,  he  sold  his  property  and  took  up  his  line  of  march  to 
the  then  far  west.  In  six  weeks'  journey,  over  the  mountains,  they  of 
course  endured  many  hardships.  There  were  pleasures  also;  at  least 
my  mother  thought  so  as  she  remembered  it  when  in  later  years  she 
told  us,  her  younger  children,  of  the  journey  and  her  last  visit  with 
her  mother  to  Morris  Point  as  then  called.  She  was  seven  years  old 
and  the  youngest  child.  She  walked  fully  half  of  the  distance,  as  oxen 
were  very  slow  travelers.  The  date  of  their  arrival  was  June  19,  1800. 
My  grandmother  bravely  took  up  her  part  of  the  work  her  husband 
had  undertaken,  both  sacrificing  their  own  comfort  to  settle  their  chil- 
dren in  homes  of  their  own.  In  order  to  do  this,  he  purchased  nearly 
four  thousand  acres  of  land,  it  being  the  northeast  quarter  of  Hartford 
township,  where  some  of  his  descendants  still  reside.  For  himself,  a 
log  house  was  quickly  made  ready,  having  neither  doors,  windows  nor 
floor.  Blankets  served  for  a  door,  sticks  plastered  with  mud  for 
a  chimney,  and  the  earth  tramped  hard  for  a  floor.    Later  a  puncheon 


358        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

flonr  (boards  split  out  of  a  log)  was  provided;  also  doors  and  windows. 
All  the  grain  that  was  ground  had  to  be  carried  to  Beaver,  forty  miles, 
on  horseback.  Indians  were  frequent  visitors,  never  causing  any  trouble. 
They  lived  seven  years  in  that  cabin ;  then  a  frame  house  was  built 
on  land  joining  the  State  line  (still  owned  by  his  descendants),  where 
he  died  seven  years  later.  Mrs.  Sarah  Brockvvay  lived  twenty  years  after 
his  death,  the  last  four  years  a  helpless  invalid,  caused  by  a  fall,  a 
charge  for  her  youngest  daughter,  who  bore  that  as  bravely  as  did  her 
mother  the  coming  to  a  new  country.

Dio  W.  Burnett  was  killed  May  21,  1900,  at  Orangeville.  Obituary: 
"  Orangeville,  May  23.  Early  on  Monday  morning,  May  21,  our  com- 
munity was  startled  by  the  news  which  spread  with  lightning  like  rapid- 
ity, that  one  of  our  most  promising  young  men,  Dio  Burnett,  had  been 
killed  by  the  cars.  Such  accidents  are  common,  so  much  so  that  unless 
the  victim  is  one  bound  to  us  by  ties  of  blood,  they  attract  but  brief 
comment;  but  this  death  was  an  exception.  Every  heart  in  our  com- 
munity was  smitten.  There  was  none  whose  life  had  not  been  made 
brighter  by  Dio's  kindly  and  cheerful  buoyant  words.  How  it  happened, 
we  cannot  know  until  the  mists  are  cleared  away  and  the  many  per- 
plexing problems  of  life  are  solved  in  the  clearer  light  of  eternity."

Norman  Wilson  Storer  was  born  in  1868  in  Orangeville,  a  little  vil- 
lage in  the  northeastern  part  of  the  State  of  Ohio.  Mr.  Storer  has 
always  been  a  hard  worker,  and  his  early  life  was  by  no  means  an  easy 
one.  The  death  of  his  father  when  he  was  scarcely  three  years  old, 
left  his  mother  with  five  children  to  care  for,  and  but  a  small  amount 
of  property  with  which  to  do  it.  Indomitable  energy  on  her  part,  how- 
ever, overcame  lack  of  fortune  and  she  managed  to  give  her  children 
more  than  an  average  education.  Mr.  Storer  also  did  much  for  himself 
in  that  line,  and  with  the  help  given  him  by  his  mother,  worked  his  way 
through  college,  taking  the  degree  of  Mechanical  Engineer  in  Electrical 
Engineering  at  the  Ohio  State  University  in  1891.  He  was  one  of  the 
first  two  who  obtained  that  degree  after  the  starting  of  the  electrical 
engineering  course  in  that  University.  Shortly  after  graduation,  he  en- 
tered the  employ  of  the  Westinghouse  Electric  &  Manufacturing  Com- 
pany and  has  been  associated  with  them  ever  since.  He  soon  worked 
his  way  to  the  testing  room,  where  his  originality  and  persistence  quickly 
brought  him  to  the  front  and  he  was  given  charge  of  important  experi- 
mental work.  Having  received  an  offer  from  his  employers  to  enter  the 
designing  department  in  the  spring  of  1893,  he  first  took  up  his  work 
in  that  line  as  assistant  to  Mr.  B.  G.  Lamme,  then  as  now  chief  designer 
of  the  Westinghouse  Electric  &  Manufacturing  Company.  From  the 
beginning,  Mr.  Storer  devoted  himself  particularly  to  direct  current 
design.  It  is  generally  conceded  by  those  who  are  familiar  with  both 
systems  that  alternate  current  apparatus  is  much  simpler  than  that  of 
the  direct  current  type.  As  to  whether  or  not  it  is  easier  to  design 
alternating  current  than  direct  current  apparatus,  is  a  question  that  per- 
haps hut  few  men  can  answer,  for  the  simple  reason  that  but  few  men 
have  ever  actually  designed  commercial  apparatus  of  both  types.  The 
commutator  presents  difficulties  in  large  and  sometimes  even  in  small 
direct  current  generators  of  a  kind  that  are  not  encountered  in  alter- 
nating current  design,  and  for  this  reason  it  has  been  referred  to  by 
one  of  our  most  noted  electricians  as  an  "  excrescence  "  on  an  alternating 
current  generator.  The  direct  current,  however,  is  a  necessity  in  many 
industries  where  the  alternating  current  can  never  be  used,  and  for  that 
reason  we  may  always  expect  direct  current  apparatus  to  be  in  demand. 
Among  the  many  engineers  who  have  undertaken  the  design  of  direct 
current  apparatus,  a  small  number  have  achieved  marked  success.  One 
of  the  most  noteworthy  examples  of  the  latter  class,  if  we  may  judge 
by  results,  is  the  subject  of  this  sketch.     Mr.   Storer's  first  work  as  a 


SARAH  MORRIS  RECORD  373 

designer  was  in  developing  small  multipolar  generators  and  motors,  which 
were  brought  out  in  1894,  and  which  are  still  the  standard  of  the  West- 
inghouse  Company.  The  fact  that  this  line  comprises  between  250  and 
300  machines,  may  give  some  idea  of  the  work  involved.  His  next  work 
was  on  engine  type  generators  of  all  sizes  and  in  the  line,  which  was 
brought  out  some  months  later,  were  embodied  all  the  valuable  features 
of  the  small  belted  machines,  together  with  the  new  points  which  con- 
tinual study  had  shown  to  be  desirable.  The  result  was  a  line  of  gen- 
erators which  for  general  all  around  excellence  remains  unsurpassed. 
In  later  years,  Mr.  Storer's  work  has  broadened  out  and  he  has  designed 
machines  for  all  classes  of  service,  including  those  for  lighting,  power, 
railway  generators  and  motors,  electrolytic  generators,  as  well  as  small 
motors  for  automobile  work.  Some  examples  of  the  larger  machines  of 
his  design  may  be  found  in  the  power  stations  of  the  South  Side  Ele- 
vated of  Chicago,  the  St.  Louis  Rapid  Transit  Company  and  the  Boston 
Elevated,  including  650  K.  W.,  800  K.  W.,  1500  K.  W.,  2250  K.  W.,  and 
2700  K.  W.,  engine-type  railway  generators.  In  electrolytic  work,  the 
direct  coupled  units  at  the  Pittsburg  Reduction  Co.,  at  Niagara  Falls, 
ranging  in  size  from  560  Kilowatts  to  1,000  Kilowatts ;  the  600  K.  W. 
generators  at  the  Raritan  Copper  Co.,  Perth  Amboy,  N.  J.,  the  850  K.  W. 
generators  at  the  North  American  Chemical  Company,  Bay  City,  Mich., 
and  the  810  K.  W.  generators  at  the  Boston  &  Montana  C.  C.  and  S.  M. 
Company,  Great  Falls,  Mont.,  may  be  seen  in  daily  operation  and  are 
fair  samples  of  the  class  they  represent.  Mr.  Storer  is  largely  responsi- 
ble for  the  design  of  the  present  line  of  the  Westinghouse  railway  motors 
and  to  him  is  also  due  the  credit  for  the  present  method  of  rating  motors 
of  this  class,  which  has  been  adopted  by  the  above  Company  and  which 
will  undoubtedly  come  into  general  use  as  it  becomes  better  known. 
Among  the  patents  taken  out  by  Mr.  Storer,  the  most  noteworthy  is  on 
the  method  of  building  laminated  poles  so  as  to  prevent  distortion  of 
the  field,  thereby  insuring  good  commutation  over  a  very  wide  range  of 
load.  That  his  reputation  as  a  careful  designer  and  conscientious  worker 
is  widely  recognized  is  attested  by  flattering  offers  he  has  received  from 
other  companies,  both  at  home  and  abroad.  Personally,  Mr.  Storer  is  a 
pleasant  man  to  meet.  His  character  is  above  reproach  and  his  quiet 
modesty  gives  one  an  immediate  and  lasting  confidence  in  his  ability  to 
do  whatever  he  undertakes.  Mr.  Storer  is  a  member  of  the  American 
Institute  of  Electrical  Engineers  and  of  several  other  professional  bodies.

John  Morris,  son  of  Capt.  Amos  Morris  ist,  of  East  Haven,  born 
September  2,  1759,  died  June  22,  1844,  married  August  13,  i777,  Desire 
Street,  who  was  born  August  16,  1761,  and  died  in  1829.  She  was  the 
daughter  of  Rev.  Nicholas  Street  and  Desire  Thompson  of  East  Haven, 
Conn.,  and  the  granddaughter  of  Moses  and  Desire  (Heminway)  Thomp- 
son. The  Rev.  Nicholas  Street  was  the  second  pastor  of  the  Congre- 
gational church  in  East  Haven,  where  he  was  ordained  October  8,  I755i 
and  continued  in  the  ministry  for  fifty-one  years  until  his  death,  which 
occurred  on  the  anniversary  of  his  ordination.  He  was  highly  esteemed 
in  the  community  and  elsewhere  for  his  personal  excellence.  In  the- 
ology he  was  conservative  and  Calvinistic  in  distinction  from  the  "  New 
Lights "  of  his  day.  He  delighted  in  doctrinal  preaching,  but  "  had  the 
rare  faculty  of  presenting  abstruse  subjects  in  a  form  of  language  in- 
teresting to  his  hearers,"  and  such  of  his  sermons  as  still  exist  are  marked 
with  the  glow  of  practical  earnestness  as  well  as  with  intellectual  ability. 
During  the  Revolution,  he  was  in  ardent  sympathy  with  the  American 
cause  and  did  much  to  kindle  and  encourage  the  spirit  of  patriotism. 
He  was  a  great  friend  of  the  Marquis  De  LaFayette  and  cordially  enter- 
tained him  while  he  was  in  New  Haven. 

At  the  close  of  the  Revolutionary  War,  1783,  Deacon  John  Morris  and 
his  son,  William,  decided  to  leave  their  pleasant  home  in  New  Haven, 
Conn.,  and  go  into  the  wilds  of  Jefferson  County,  N.  Y.,  and  select  farms,

13,  1824,  died  May  16,  1887.     Mrs.  Sisson  died  May  27,  1899. 

Spencer  Luther  Sisson  was  a  man  of  dark  brown,  curly  hair  and  dark 
blue  eyes.  He  had  a  very  pleasant  address  and  possessed  a  magnetism 
that  held  an  audience  spellbound  when  he  gave  temperance  or  political 
lectures,  in  a  tone  sometimes  lower  than  the  common  voice.  He  was  a 
fine  mathematician  and  took  a  four  years'  course  at  De  Ruyter  Institute, 
from  which  he  graduated.  He  then  took  a  course  in  New  York  City, 
studying  mechanics,  in  which  line  he  continued  until  his  death. 

He  was  married  at  the  age  of  twenty-four  and  was  admitted  to  the 
bar  at  the  age  of  thirty,  but  practiced  law  only  a  short  time,  having  con- 
scientious scruples  against  pleading  the  case  of  a  client  whom  he  knew 
to  be  wrong. 

In  childhood,  he  joined  the  close  communion  Baptist  Church  and  lived 
a  consistent  Christian  life.

Belinda  D.  Morris,  daughter  of  William  Morris  and  Sarah  (Dunham) 
Morris,  born  July  14,  1814,  married  to  Rev.  Orlando  Caroles  Cole,  born 
March  30,  1810,  in  Herkimer  County,  New  York.  Mrs.  Cole  died  in 
Cape  Vincent,  N.  Y.,  April  17,  1881.     Mr.  Cole  died  March  11,  1893. 

After  his  wife's  death,  he  was  induced  by  his  only  surviving  daughter, 
Mrs.  James  B.  Geggie,  to  go  to  Duluth  and  find  his  home  at  least  for  a 
time  with  her. 

Belinda  D.  Morris  was  born  in  Sunderland,  Mass.,  July  14,  1814,  and 
while  yet  an  infant  was  taken  to  Smithville,  Jefferson  County,  N.  Y., 
where  her  father  settled  on  a  farm.  At  the  age  of  twelve  years,  she 
was  converted  and  became  a  member  of  the  Presbyterian  Church.  In 
1832  she  was  married  to  the  Rev.  O.  C.  Cole  and  in  the  year  1834  they 
sought  a  home  in  Jacksonville,  111.,  where  she  united  with  the  Methodist 


COLE  RECORD  383 

Episcopal  Church  of  which  her  husband  was  a  member.  They  returned 
to  New  York  State  in  1841.  In  1847  Mr.  Cole  united  with  the  Black 
River  Conference  on  trial.  This  opened  a  new  and  enlarged  field  of 
labor  into  which  she  entered  with  all  the  ardor  of  her  nature,  fully  con- 
secrated to  the  service  of  the  church  and  of  God.  For  nearly  thirty-four 
years  she  shared  with  her  husband  in  all  his  labors  and  privations,  sor- 
rows and  joys  of  a  life  in  the  itinerancy,  contributing  much  by  her  faith- 
ful work  and  beautiful  example  to  the  success  that  marked  the  ministry 
of  her  husband  through  all  of  these  years.  She  had  felt  for  several 
years  that  her  health  was  declining,  but  her  labors  continued  and  were 
greatly  blessed.  Her  last  sickness  was  attended  with  great  suffering  all 
of  which  was  endured  without  complaint.  She  felt  and  knew  that  final 
victory  and  eternal  rest  were  sure,  and  on  this  assurance  she  waited 
patiently  for  the  end.  She  was  conscious  to  the  last,  recognizing  her 
husband  and  children,  three  of  whom  were  present,  and  comforting  them 
with  many  words  that  told  of  that  triumph  she  was  then  enjoying  and 
of  the  home  to  which  she  was  going.  She  died  like  those  whose  death 
is  precious  in  the  sight  of  the  Lord,  on  Sunday  morning,  April  17,  1881, 
in  the  parsonage  at  Cape  Vincent,  N.   Y.     (Signed  by  J.   L.   Bingham.)

grandparents  and  their  children,  he  returned  and  remained  until  old 
enough  to  enter  Syracuse  University,  and  took  his  bachelor's  degree  there 
in  1882.  It  was  stated  that  he  was  the  latest  graduate  to  win  fame  in 
the  world  of  letters.  Mr.  Vincent  is  according  to  tradition  in  general, 
a  Frenchman,  because  of  his  name,  his  face  and  the  theme  of  his  most 
successful  book,  "Hotel  de  Rambouillet,"  a  collection  of  essays  on  French 
literature.  Mr.  Vincent  is,  however,  American  for  half  a  dozen  genera-

literary  topics.  His  personal  studies  in  literature  have  been  very  popular. 
His  first  book,  now  not  easily  found,  was  an  earnest  plea  for  a  popular 
recognition  of  Browning's  poetry.  Some  years  ago  the  Atlantic  published 
the  first  of  the  essay,  which  afterwards  appeared  in  "  The  Bibliograph."

ruary 22,  1834.  They  were  married  in  Camden,  N.  Y.,  September  24, 
1868.  James  B.  Geggie  was  born  in  the  city  of  New  York,  of  British 
parentage,  his  father  being  Scotch  and  his  mother  English.  His  early 
years  were  spent  in  northern  New  York,  from  whence  he  went  to  Canada, 
where  he  was  engaged  in  business  until  the  Civil  War  became  imminent, 
when  he  returned  to  the  United  States  and  engaged  in  recruiting  service 
in  Pennsylvania,  going  himself  with  the  third  company  he  recruited.  It 
became  Company  "  F,"  105th  Reg.  Pa.  Infantry,  which  was  attached  to  the 
1st  Brigade,  ist  Division,  Third  Corps  of  the  Army  of  the  Potomac. 
With  this  organization,  he  remained  throughout  the  campaign,  being  three 
times  wounded,  once  seriously,  at  Five  Oaks.  After  leaving  the  military 
5er\-ice  by  reason  of  disability,  he  was  attached  to  the  Naval  Pay  De- 
partment, on  the  South  Atlantic  Blockading  Squadron.  After  the  war, 
he  returned  to  Pennsylvania  and  engaged  in  the  production  of  oil,  for 
six  years.  While  there  he  married  April  24,  1868,  Adelia  B.  Cole,  daugh- 
ter of  Rev.  O.  C.  and  Belinda  (Morris)  Cole,  of  Camden,  N.  J.  Re- 
moving to  St.  Louis,  Mo.,  they  resided  there  about  fifteen  years ;  he  en- 
gaged in  real  estate  business  and  for  nine  years  was  connected  with 
the  judiciary  department  of  the  United  States.  Then  they  moved  to 
Duluth,  III.  from  there  to  Minneapolis.  Mrs.  Geggie  was  appointed  in 
1899  as  National  Organizer  of  the  Woman's  Home  Missionary  Society  of 
the  Methodist  Episcopal  Church.  Her  husband  and  children  were  much 
interested  and  wished  her  to  accept  the  position,  as  she  could  leave  her 
home  with  her  husband  and  one  daughter  to  look  after  it,  the  other 
members  of  her  family  being  in  homes  of  their  own ;  the  great  amount 
of  travel  being  the  only  objection  left,  which  she  has  overcome  cour- 
ageously.    She  is  well  constituted  for  the  work.

Morris  Brown  Geggie,  son  of  James  B.  and  Adelia  B.  J.  (Cole) 
Geggie,  died  of  typhoid  fever,  October  26,  1888.  "  He  was  one  of  the 
brightest  and  most  promising  boys  in  all  Duluth.  He  was  an  unusually 
affectionate  and  lovable  boy  in  the  family  circle,  a  faithful  and  diligent 
student  in  school,  and  in  his  general  bearing  he  was  courteous,  polite  and 
manly.  It  was  but  natural  that  such  a  boy  should  have  been  fondly  loved 
in  the  home  circle  and  have  been  a  favorite  among  his  playmates  and 
associates  and  that  he  should  have  been  looked  upon  as  a  boy  of  much 
hope  and  promise  by  all  who  knew  him.  While  the  sorrow  for  the 
death  of  this  bright  and  unusually  interesting  boy  will  of  course  be  felt 
the  most  keenly  in  the  home  in  which  there  will  now  be  a  vacant  chair, 
yet  it  will  be  shared  by  the  people  of  this  entire  community."  (Duluth 
Daily  Tribune,  October  27,  1888.)

George  Selden  Shattuck  died  at  his  home  on  Walnut  Street,  Mead- 
ville,  at  one  o'clock  Tuesday,  February  28,  1905,  after  a  lingering  illness 
from  Bright's  disease.  He  had  been  failing  in  health  for  a  year  or  more, 
but  his  sickness  was  not  thought  to  be  serious  until  recently. 

George  S.  Shattuck  was  born  in  Meadville,  April  19,  1842,  and  lived 
nearly  his  whole  life  in  this  city.  He  had  a  long  and  honorable  service 
in  the  army  during  the  Civil  War,  enlisting  at  Franklin,  Penn.,  April 
25,  1861,  as  a  private  in  Company  "  C,"  Tenth  Regiment,  P.  V.  I.,  for 
three  years  or  during  the  war,  serving  until  the  close,  June  11,  1864. 
He  became  a  member  of  Sergeant  Pfeiffer  Post,  No.  331,  G.  A.  R.,  May  30, 
1883,  and  served  three  years  as  quartermaster.  In  1888  he  was  elected 
commander  of  the  Post.  As  treasurer  of  the  Northwestern  Association 
during  a  term  beginning  September  10,  1885,  Mr.  Shattuck  proved  an 
efficient  and  capable  officer  of  a  worthy  organization.  In  1888  he  was 
elected  as  a  delegate  to  the  National  Encampment  of  the  G.  A.  R.  held 
at  Columbus,  O. 

For  a  number  of  years,  Mr.  Shattuck  was  a  successful  traveling  sales- 
man for  the  S.  S.  Marvin  Company,  of  Pittsburg.  When  Major  L.  L. 
Shattuck  assumed  the  office  of  register  and  recorder,  Mr.  Shattuck,  who 
was  a  cousin  of  Major  Shattuck,  was  appointed  deputy  and  filled  the 
office  during  the  term  of  three  years. 

Mr.  Shattuck  was  a  man  of  amiable  disposition  and  had  many  admira- 
ble qualities  of  mind  and  heart,  which  endeared  him  to  a  wide  circle 
of  friends  and  acquaintances.  He  kept  in  touch  with  his  army  comrades, 
and  was  highly  respected  by  members  of  the  G.  A.  R.,  who  always  took 
pleasure  in  honoring  him  with  positions  of  trust  and  esteem.  Those 
who  knew  him  best  grieve  most  at  their  loss  and  extend  their  deepest 
sympathy  to  his  bereaved  widow,  who  survives  him. 

Mr.  Shattuck  was  a  member  of  Crawford  Lodge,  No.  234,  F.  &  A.  M., 
Solomon  Chapter  191,  Northwestern  Commandery  No.  25,  Knights 
Templars,  Zem  Zem  Temple  (Erie)  Lodge  219,  B.  P.  O.  E.,  Royal  Ar- 
canum, A.  O.  U.  W.,  and  served  from  the  Second  Ward  as  councilman. 

As  a  soldier,  citizen,  friend,  neighbor  and  business  man,  George  S. 
Shattuck  won  esteem  of  large  circle  of  friends  and  acquaintances  to  whom 
his  death  is  felt  as  a  personal  loss.

NANCY  MORRIS  RECORD  395 

The  following  is  a  record  of  Mr.  Burt's  experience  in  the  Fiji  Islands: 
"  March  15,  1847,  left  my  home  in  Meadville,  Penn.,  and  traveled 
through  the  western  and  southern  states  and  from  the  mouth  of  the 
Mississippi  River  to  the  Falls  of  St.  Anthony,  thence  back  to  New 
Orleans.  Went  to  the  war  in  Mexico  in  1848.  At  the  close  of  the  war, 
went  to  California,  where  I  remained  until  April,  1852;  at  this  time,  the 
lung  trouble  I  had  been  afflicted  with  for  some  time  developed  an  acute 
stage  and  having  had  pictured  to  me  by  an  old  schoolmate  the  dehghtful 
climate  of  some  of  the  islands  in  the  Pacific,  I  was  seized  with  the  fancy 
to  spend  my  last  days  and  die  beneath  the  shade  of  a  cocoa  palm.  On 
the  voyage  out,  I  went  to  work  at  once  to  learn  navigation  and  how  to 
manage  a  vessel,  and  as  mate  and  owner  of  my  own  vessel  off  and  on, 
I  followed  this  life  for  over  forty  years  among  the  South  Sea  Islands, 
the  climate  and  the  salt  water  restoring  me  to  health.  In  my  course  I 
had  spent  some  time  in  the  Sandwich  Islands  and  the  Navigator  Islands, 
both  known  by  the  name  of  Samoa,  which  has  had  the  distinction  in  later 
years  of  being  the  home  of  the  popular  novelist,  Robert  Louis  Stevenson. 
But  it  was  amongst  the  Fiji  Islands  that  I  spent  the  greater  portion  of 
these  forty  years.  In  these  Islands,  I  owned  three  of  the  finest  and 
best  paying  cotton  plantations  in  that  great  group  of  over  200  Islands. 
These  plantations  were  all  worked  by  cannibals ;  I  sometimes  employed 
over  200  hands  on  a  single  plantation.  In  1862  I  laid  aside  my  vessel 
for  a  time  and  went  into  the  very  heart  of  the  great  cannibal  district  and 
opened  up  my  first  plantation,  which  was  the  first  to  prove  a  financial 
success.  These  cannibal  tribes  that  worked  for  me  on  this  plantation  for 
over  two  years  paid  me  all  the  respect  that  could  be  paid  to  a  white  man 
under  any  circumstances.  One  year  after  I  left  that  district,  they  killed, 
cooked  and  ate  the  Rev.  Mr.  Baker,  Wesleyan  Missionary,  for  daring  to 
walk  across  their  territory.  Mr.  Baker  was  my  next  neighbor  nearest 
the  Coast  and  I  and  many  others  warned  him  against  going  amongst  these 
people,  who  had  been  driven  from  their  own  home  in  a  religious  war. 
When  I  left  this  Rew  River,  I  took  to  my  vessel  again  and  went  over  to 
Kadaver  and  opened  up  with  Mr.  Underwood  another  large  plantation 
under  my  own  supervision.  Then  Mr.  Underwood  thought  he  would  like 
to  try  his  hands  at  managing  cannibals  and  was  anxious  to  open  up  the 
third  plantation  on  the  Siga  Lake  River,  another  great  cannibal  district. 
Against  my  better  judgment,  I  allowed  him  to  do  so ;  I  in  the  meantime 
being  financial  partner  and  with  my  vessel  keeping  the  two  places  in 
supplies.  On  returning  one  night  from  a  voyage  at  sea,  I  found  the  place 
besieged  by  five  hundred  cannibals,  but  I  got  in  without  their  knowing  it. 
A  few  hours  afterwards,  the  attack  was  made.  In  the  hand  to  hand  fight, 
when  the  clubs  and  tomahawks  flew  thick  and  fast,  tho'  I  was  wounded 
and  covered  with  blood,  I  was  recognized  by  the  chief  of  the  attacking 
party,  whom  I  had  once  befriended.     He  called  out  the  name  the  natives 


396        GENEALOGY  OF  THE  MORRIS  FAMILY 

had  given  me,  'Oh  Dear,  Oh  Dear,  Sin  Nengo '  (King  of  Nengo,  the 
name  of  an  island  I  had  once  owned)  'do  not  slay  my  friend.'  Seven 
of  my  people  lay  around  me  dead  (poor  fellows,  they  were  afterwards 
cooked  and  eaten).  He  wanted  to  know  what  I  was  doing  there.  I 
told  him  I  had  come  to  save  life.  His  reply  was:  'Go,  go  at  once  or 
I  cannot  save  you.'  My  answer  was:  'I  cannot  go  without  my  people.' 
He  then  said:  'What  shall  I  do?'  I  said:  'Kill  no  more;  spare 
life  and  take  the  trade.'  This  was  a  lucky  thought  for  there  were  five 
hundred  more  cannibals  in  reserve  that  had  not  yet  arrived  and  if  those 
present  waited,  they  would  have  to  divide  with  the  others.  The  con- 
sequence was,  they  made  at  once  to  carry  of?  the  trade,  cloth,  axes, 
knives  (of  the  latter  there  were  i8o  dozen)  that  would  weigh  over  a 
pound  each  and  as  sharp  as  razors,  so  required  careful  handling.  This 
occupied  their  attention  and  I  was  able  to  gather  my  people  together  and 
get  them  away,  112  in  all.  This  was  on  the  8th  day  of  January,  1869. 
I  lost  here  of  personal  property  alone  $70,000.  I  now  wound  up  my 
cotton  planting  business  although  I  was  a  groat  favorite  with  the  can- 
nibals, as  the  foregoing  will  show,  or  we  would  all  have  shared  the  same 
fate  as  the  seven.  I  again  took  to  my  legitimate  business,  trading  and 
sea-faring  life.  In  1871,  Mr.  Underwood  was  killed  by  his  own  laborers. 
In  1865  I  made  a  cruise  to  New  Zealand,  called  on  account  of  its  great 
beauty  '  The  Britain  of  the  Pacific' 

"  On  the  I2th  of  January,  1886,  I  married  at  Auckland,  New  Zealand, 
Frances  Rebecca  Fletcher,  youngest  daughter  of  John  Fletcher,  hop  mer- 
chant, of  Leeds,  England.  On  June  3,  1889,  our  daughter  Madeline  Rod- 
ney was  born  under  two  flags.  I  had  spread  the  stars  and  stripes  over 
the  canopy  of  the  bed  and  over  that,  without  my  knowledge,  my  wife's 
friends  had  laid  the  Union  Jack  of  Great  Britain.  I  left  the  Fiji  Islands 
in  November,  1894,  and  came  to  reside  in  Washington,  D.  C.  My  wife 
wound  up  my  business  in  Fiji  and  joined  me  here  in  Washington  in 
1896." 

"  This  perfect  chain  of  names  and  lives 
Rescued  from  oblivion's  grasp 
By  patient,  loving  toil  which  gives 
To  us  the  links  to  clasp. 

In  tender  memory,  kith  and  kin 

For  years  unknown,  and  scattered  wide, 

Into  the  circle  are  gathered  in 

From  far  of?  lands,  o'er  seas  and  tide. 

Warriors  bold  these  records  show 
Whose  footprints  in  the  sands  of  time 


JAMES  MORRIS  RECORD  397 

Are  worthy  deeds,  to  which  we  bow, 
Inspired  we  sing  their  requiem. 

Martyrs  too  whose  lives  were  given 

For  conscience'  sake,  with  reverent  love. 

We  humbly  gaze  up  into  heaven 
And  pray  that  we  as  faithful  prove. 

From  north  and  south  and  east  and  west 
The  links  are  formed  and  welded  true; 

Where  e'er  we  go,  where  e'er  we  rest. 
Some  trace  of  kinship  comes  to  view. 

Thro'  busy  cities  and  obscure  ways 

Our  friend  has  sought,  wit  hskill  and  care. 

To  gather  up  the  scattered  leaves 
That  left  the  twigs  and  branches  bare. 

And  now  the  tree  stands  forth  to  view, 

From  stem  to  branch  in  varied  suit, 
A  goodly  sight  for  us  and  you 

Of  buds  and  blossoms,  flowers  and  fruit."

Essex,  N.  J.,  about  1794,  and  settled  in  the  wilds  of  Western  Pennsylvania. 
The  government  offered  as  an  inducement  to  settlers  200  acres  of  land 
to  every  man  who  would  buy  100  acres.  They  were  young  married  people 
and  with  two  small  children  answered  to  the  call,  thus  coming  into  posses- 
sion of  three  hundred  acres  of  land.  For  six  months  the  wife  never  saw 
the  face  of  a  woman.  Meadville,  fourteen  miles  away,  was  the  nearest 
mill,  and  for  more  than  one  year  everything  had  to  be  carried  on  men's 
backs  to  and  from  town.  Their  house  was  strongly  built  of  logs  to 
guard  against  wild  animals.  Often  at  night  the  screech  of  the  panther 
and  the  slash  of  his  tail  was  heard  at  the  door.  A  few  years  after.  Dea- 
con John's  father  died  and  he  was  called  back  to  New  Jersey  to  settle 
the  estate;  his  own  share  being  an  even  half  bushel  of  silver  dollars,  which 
he  brought  back  in  a  one-horse  wagon. 

Elizabeth  Wykoff  is  supposed  to  be  the  descendant  of  Peter  Wykoff 
and  of  Low  Dutch  origin. 

Dr.  John  L.  Morris  died  February  12,  1905,  at  his  home  in  Kingsville, 
O.  Death  came  suddenly  early  Sunday  morning.  Deceased  had  been  in 
feeble  health  for  several  years  past  and  his  advanced  age,  seventy-four 
years,  rendered  him  incapable  of  successfully  combating  the  enemy.  The 
sudden  end  was  not  expected  and  heart  failure  is  ascribed  as  the  direct 
cause  of  his  death.  He  had  been  a  resident  of  Kingsville  thirty-six  years. 
The  widow,  one  daughter,  Mrs.  I.  V.  Nearpass,  and  one  son  survive;  all 
living  at  home. 

Deceased  was  a  member  of  the  Methodist  Episcopal  Church  for  forty 
years.  He  was  one  of  the  oldest  and  best  known  physicians  and  residents 
of  Kingsville.  He  sank  peacefully  to  rest,  giving  testimony  on  his  dying 
bed,  by  a  nod  of  his  head,  that  Jesus  was  with  him  and  that  he  was  going 
home  to  rest.
