PREFACE. 



This volume is the outcome of a search for the aucestry of Timo- 
thy Clark, an early settler of Rockingham, Vermont, undertaken 
by the writer in the spring of 1902, at the request of Col. Albert 
Clarke, of Boston, a great-grandson. The search continued for 
nearly two years, and resulted in establishing the descent of Timothy 
Clark from Richard Clarke, an original settler of Rowley, Mass., 
through Richard's great-grandson, Ebenezer Clark, of Mansfield, 
Conn. The line of descent is absolutely proved by the land records 
and vital statistics of Mansfield and Stafford, Conn., and Rowley, 
Mass., and by the Probate records of Essex County, Mass., and is 
further corroborated by interesting collateral proofs. 

The facts in the history of this branch of the Clark family, col- 
lected during this search, were arranged in systematic form as far 
down as the fifth generation, and were published in the New-Eng- 
land Historical and Genealogical Register, for July, 1904. The 
sketch published in the Register has been slightly enlarged for the 
present work and the history of the family has been continued to the 
present time. An account of the family reunion held at Rochester 
North Hollow, Vt,, August 30, 1904, at which a memorial to Tim- 
othy Clark and his son, Jonathan Rogers Clark, was dedicated with 
interesting ceremonies, has been added. It has been the aim to 
give a concise account of all the descendants of Timothy Clark in 
both male and female lines. If the history is not as complete in all 
respects as could be wished, it is because letters of inquiry in some 
cases have been answered briefly or not at all, and in some instances 
it has been found impossible to obtain a clue. All the illustrations 
have been made especially for the work, and add greatly to its in- 
terest and value. Many of them are reproductions of recent pho- 
tographs. It was practically impossible to have all the families 
represented in the illustrations, so only types of the last five genera- 
tions are presented, no portraits of an earlier date being in exist- 
ence. The writer wishes to express his thanks to many members of 
the family for their prompt and courteous replies to his repeated in- 
quiries, and especially to Colonel Clarke for his unfailing interest and 
cooperation and for his great liberality in assuming the entire cost of 
the work, including the engravings. His efforts have entitled him 
to the lasting gratitude of every descendant of Timothy Clark.

DESCENDANTS OF RICHARD CLARKE OF ROWLEY, 

MASS., IN THE LINE OF TIMOTHY CLARK OF 

ROCKINGHAM, VT. 



1. Richard 1 Clarke, the progenitor of the family to which this sketch 

is devoted, was married in Rowley, Mass., — 6 mo, 1643, to Alice . 

They were the second couple married in that town. Nothing has been as- 
certained as to his previous history, but it is evident that he was an emi- 
grant from England. He was probably one of the company that came with 
Rev. Ezekiel Rogers from Rowley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, Eng- 
land, in the antnmn of 1638, and settled in Rowley, Mass., in April, 1639. 
Says Gov. John Winthrop : " A plantation was begun between Ipswich and 
Newbury. The occasion was this : Mr. Eaton and Mr. Davenport having 
determined to sit down at Quinipiack there came over one Mr. Ezekiel 
Rogers, second son of that truly faithful servant of God, Mr. Richard 
Rogers of Weathersfield in England, and with him some twenty families, 
godly men, and most of them of good estate." After relating the induce- 
ments offered to Mr. Rogers to settle in Quinipiack, he continues : " Where- 
upon he consulted with the elders of the bay, and, by their advice, etc., 
holding his former engagement released, he and his people took that place 
by Ipswich ; and because some farms had been granted by Ipswich and 
Newbury, which would be prejudicial to their plantation, they bought out 
the owners, disbursing therein about £800." (History of New England, 
Vol. 1, p. 354.) The name of Richard Clarke does not appear among the 
owners of one and one-half acre lots, to whom assignment of rights in the 
commons, called " gates," was made, but in a second survey made in 1661 
there was assigned to Richard Clarke, " as to an acre and a halfe lot that 
he purchased of Thomas Elathrope, one gate and halfe." (History of 
Essex County, Vol. 2, p. 1133.) "Thomas Elithorp had an acre and a 
half house lot on Bradford street (Rowley), 1643. This lot with rights 
soon became the property of Richard Clark and remains (1883) in the pos- 
session of his descendants." (Essex Institute Coll., Vol. 21, p. 78.) Noth- 
ing is known of Richard Clarke's occupation, but it is not unlikely that, 




beside carrying on a small farm, he was a weaver* like many of tlie first 
settlers of Rowley. He was a town officer; was overseer 1G5G ami 1660, 
and selectman in 16G6. 

The death of neither Richard nor Alice Clarke is recorded in Rowley, but 
his death occurred before Mar. 31, 1G74, when his will was proved; and 
as his wife Alice is not mentioned, it is probable that her death preceded his. 

The will of Richard Clarke, on file in Salem, Mass., a facsimile of the 
signature to which is reproduced, says : " Having disposed of my children 
in marriage and not having much to dispose yet that all Love may be con- 
tinued betwixt my son and daughter my will is that my son John Clarke 
shall have all my stocke iu cattell horses sheepe and swine and two thirds 
of all my provission and implements of husbandry he paying all my debts 
and funerall expenses. Item My will further is that my daughter Esther 
Hobkinson shall have all my household goods (excepting the Read Ruge 
that is upon my bed which I give unto 
my son John), and the other third part 
of my provission and implements of 
husbandry. My will further is that my 
son John shall be the Sole executor of 
this my last will : unto which I set my 
hand this 7th day of February 1673."

vi. Martha, b. 10 — 1 mo., 1656; buried 16 June, 1660. 

2. John 2 Clarke (7? ich ard 1 ) was born in Rowley, 26 — lino. 1650. He 
married, Jan. 10, 1672, Mary, daughter of John Poore of Newbury, 
who was born Dec. 12, 1654. John Poore, born in Wiltshire, Eng- 
land, about 1615, emigrated in 1635, and settled in the part of 
Newbury called k ' The Neck," on the south side of Parker River, 
on the street leading from Newbury to Rowley. Nine generations 
of his descendants have lived in the house partly built by him. 

John Clarke died Dec. 21, 1736, "aged 86 years and 9 months, 
of ye palsy. A good old man." (Church records.) His wife Mary 
died Sept. 10, 1726. 

Children, by Rowley records : 
i. Sarah, 3 b. Sept. 7, 1675 ; m. June 19, 1696, James Ordway of Newbury. 

* Gov. Winthrop, under date of the 12th of Fourth month, 164?!, — the very year in 
which Richard Clarke was married — says : " Our supplies from England failing much, 
men began to look about them, and fell to a manufacture of cotton, whereof we had a 
store from Barbados, and of hemp and flax, wherein Rowley, to their great commenda- 
tion, exceeded all other towns." (History of New England, Vol. 2, p. 144.)

. Richard 3 Clarke (John, 2 Eichard 1 ) was born in Rowley, Mass., 
Nov. 10, 1677. He married first, Dec. 2, 1702, Abigail, daughter 
of John and Abigail (Kimball) Wicom, who died Oct. 17, 1722, 
variously spelled Wickham, Wikeham, Wickurn, Wicum, Wicom. 
He married second, Aug. 9, 1727, Abigail, daughter of Joseph Kil- 
born. He died July 11, 1730, " by y e small pox." 

The will of Richard Clark, on file in Salem, Mass., a facsimile of the 
signature to which is here given, says in part : 

" Imprimis, I give and bequeath to Abigail Clark, my dearly beloved 
wife, one third part of my Real Estate in Housing and Lands during 
her natural life. Item, I give to my wife one third part of my Moveable 
Estate after my debts be Discharged and Expenses for my Burying. 

Item, I give to my son Simon Clark and my son Ebenezer Clark all 
my Real Estate, both in Housing and Lands, to be equally divided be- 
tween the said Simon Clark and Ebenezer Clark, both for Quantity and 
Quality, also my will is that my two sous : namely Simon and Ebenezer 
are obliged to maintain my son Richard Clark out of my estate during 
his natural Life and to bury him decently. 

Item, I give to my sou John Clark one hundred and ten Pounds to be 
paid out of my Estate in one year after my Decease. 

Item, I give to my Daughter Abigail Clark Two hundred Pounds to 
be paid out of my Estate within one year after my Decease. 

Item, I give to my Two Sons namely Simon and Ebenezer the Rest of 
my Moveable Estate that I have not given to my wife, also my will is 
that my Executors shall pay my Just Debts Legacies & funeral Charges 
out of my Estate."

The will was dated July 2, 1730, and probated Sept. 8, 1730. 
The inventory gives real estate £904.5.0, and personal - prop- 
erty £83.10.2. Later, the estate was increased by £150, and 
debts were proved to the 
amount of £227. lis. 7d., 
which made the net 
amount £ 1000.4s. This 
was one of the largest 
estates in Essex County at that time. 

Children of first wife, by Rowley records : 

i. Abigail, 4 b. Aug. 8, 1704; m. Apr. 4, 1733, Daniel Woodbury. 

ii. John, b. July 23, 170G; no record of m. in Rowley. Apr. 9, 1733, he 

was appointed guardian of his brother Ebenezer.

iv. Richard, b. Sept. 7, 1709; no record of m. in Rowley; left, by ins 

father's will, in care of his brothers Simon and Ebenezer, to be 

maintained out of the estate as long as he lived.

vii. Simon, b. Nov. 4, 1717 (prob. 1714) ; marriage intention with Ruth 

Taylor, of Scituate, rec. in Rowley May 13, 1738. On Mar. 28; 

1738, John Coller, of Grafton, Mass., deeded a tract of 100 acres 
in Stafford, Conn., to Simon Clark of Rowley, Mass. On Dec. 25. 

1739, Simon Clark deeded one half of this tract to his brother 
Ebenezer Clark. 

viii. Ebenezer, b. Oct. 19, 1717, bapt. Oct. 20, 1717; resided in Mansfield, 
Conn. 

Children of second wife : 

ix. A child, d. Mar. 24, 1729, unbaptized. 

x. A child, d. June 24, 1730, "by y e small pox." 

Ebenezer 4 Clarke (Richard? John, 2 Richard 1 ) was born in Row- 
ley, Mass., Oct. 19, 1717, and baptized Oct. 20, 1717. In 1731) his 
father, Richard, died, leaving nearly all his estate to his youngest 
sons, Simon and Ebenezer, with the obligation to maintain their 
elder brother Richard during his natural life. Apr. 9, 1733, Eben- 
ezer Clarke, being fifteen years of age, made choice of his brother 
John Clarke of Rowley as his guardian. The appointment was 
made by the court, but on Oct. 8, 1734, Ebenezer made a second 
choice of a guardian, Lieut. Thomas Lambert of Rowley, " to Im- 
prove my Estate to the best advantage & to provide a good Master 
that I might lerne y e Joyner Tread." The next trace found of 
Ebenezer Clarke is in the land records of Stafford, Conn. Dec. 25, 
1739, he bought from his brother Simon one-half of a tract of 100 
acres of land in Stafford, Avhich had been deeded Mar. 28, 1738, by 
John Coller of Grafton, Mass., to Simon Clark of Rowley, Mass. 



If he ever resided in Stafford, his stay there was brief, as in 1741 
he deeded his Stafford property to his father-in-law, Timothy Dim- 
mick of Mansfield, Conn. These real estate transactions, on record 
in Stafford, furnish conclusive evidence of the parentage of Ebenezer 
Clark, which had evaded search to the time of their discovery. In 
Rowley records the name is spelled in some cases with the final e, 
which is omitted in the records of Stafford and Mansfield, but re-ap- 
pears in later generations. 

Ebenezer Clark married, in Mansfield, Conn., Sept. 2, 1740, Ann, 
daughter of Timothy and Ann (Bradford) Dimmick, who was born 
in Mansfield, May 23, 172 1. Timothy Dimmick* came to Mans- 
field from Falmouth, Mass., about 1721, having purchased from 
Hezekiah King a tract of land '"near the Willimantic River." 

Oct. 5, 1741, Timothy Dimmick deeded to Ebenezer Clark, of 
Mansfield. 21 acres of land in Mansfield, presumably in exchange 
for the land in Stafford which Clark deeded in the same year to his 
father-in-law, Dimmick. This tract of 21 acres, increased by land 
deeded Jan. 23, 1748-49, by Timothy Dimmick to his daughter 
Anne Clark, formed the homestead on which the family resided dur- 
ing their residence in Mansfield. The location is closely indicated by 
descriptions in deeds, being " in the north-westerly part of the town 
near land of John Turner, Edmund Chamberlain, Elnathan Turner 
and Shubael Waldo." July 9, 1753, Ebenezer Clark conveyed land 
adjoining the preceding to Timothy Dimmick, who re-conveyed it to 
his daughter Anne Clark. These combined tracts, amounting to about 
55 acres, remained in the possession of Ebenezer and Ann Clark till 
Apr. 25, 1777, when they conveyed the whole, described as situated 
"in the North west part of Mansfield on Willington line," to Ephraim 
Robbins. Little is found in the town records of Mansfield relative 
to Ebenezer Clark, excepting the preceding transfers of real estate 
and the births of his thirteen children. That he was a farmer is 
indicated by the following : " Ebenezer Clarks Eare Mark is a Slit 
In the top of the Right Eare. Entered here January y e 24th 
1750/51." If he carried out the plan proposed in his petition for 
the appointment of a guardian in 1734, of learning ' ; y e Joyner 
Tread," it is probable that he carried on the trade of joiner in addi- 
tion to farming. No trace has been found of Ebenezer and Ann 
Clark later than their deed of land Apr. 25, 1777, to Ephraim 

* His gravestone and that of his wife may be found in what is known as the " Gurley 
Burying Ground," in the west part of Mansfield. The inscriptions show that he died 
Dec. 27, 1783, in the 86th year of his age, and his wife died Oct. 9, 1788, in the 92d year 
of her age. The record of their marriage in Mansfield is as follows : " Timothy Dim- 
mick, son of John Dimmick, and Ann Bradford, daughter of Mr. Joseph Bradford, 
married Aug. 15, 1723."

Robbing. Their deaths are not recorded in Mansfield, nor are their 
gravestones to be found there. Their children were born in Mans- 
field. The following list is taken . from Mrs. Susan Whitney 
Dimock's excellent reprint of the Town Records of Mansfield. 
Children : 

i. Temperance, 8 b. Apr. 21, 1741. 

ii. Simon, b. Mar. 11, 1714. 
5. iii. Timothy, b. Dec. 2G, 1745; resided in Rockingham, Vt. 

iv. Joannah, b. Jan. 23, 1747-8. 

v. Wycom, b. Apr. 8, 1750. This name (which is nearly illegible in 
the record) is printed " Wilcome" in Mrs. Dimock's book, but the 
deed of Wycom Clark of Mansfield to his " Honored Father Eben- 
ezer Clark of Mansfield," dated June 14, 1777, gives the correct 
name, that of his grandmother, Abigail Wicom. He quit claimed 
to his father his right in certain lands given to his mother Ann 
Clark by his grandfather Timothy Dimmick. 

vi. Abigail, b. Feb. 28, 1752. 

vii. Ebenezer, b. Mar. 10, 1754; supposed to be the Ebenezer Clark 
who was in the " Lexington Alarm," serving 25 days ; was private in 
the company of Capt. Experience Storrs of Mansfield in Col. Israel 
Putnam's regiment, from May 8 to Dec. 16, 1775, and lost his gun 
in the battle of Bunker Hill. He bought land in Rockingham, 
Vt., in 1780; admitted to the church there, Jan. 22, 178G; was ap- 
pointed to assist in setting the Psalm and leading in singing, July 
10, 1784; and made public confession of the sin of intemperance, 
Nov. 21, 1790. 

viii. Daniel, b. May 6, 1756. 

ix. Anna, b. May 0, 17.v.t. 

x. Eunice, b. May 11, 1761. 

xi. Jonathan, b. May 20, 17C3. 

xii. Maey, b. May 7, 1765. 

xiii. Solomon, b. Oct. 7, 1767; in 1707, resided in Paris, Herkimer Co., 
N. Y. 

5. Timothy 5 Clark {Ebenezer* Richard? John? Richard 1 ) was born in 
Mansfield, Conn., Dec. 26, 1745, and baptized in the Second Church, 
Jan. 7, 1 74")— (;. The next record found is in Mansfield town rec- 
ords : " Timothy Clark and Amy Woodworth, daughter to Jedediah 
Woodworth, of Lebanon, were Joyned in Marriage Novern r y e 2'J th 
A.D. 1764." Amy Woodworth was baptized in the First Church 
of Lebanon, Nov. it, 174(3. The names of her parents are not given, 
but the date indicates her identity with the wife of Timothy Clark. 
Records of Lebanon do not show her father's parentage, and, as 
there were several Jedediah Woodworths* in Lebanon, it has been 

* The Woodworths of Lebanon were descended from Walter Woodworth of Scituate, 
Mass., through his son Joseph, who removed to Little Compton, R. I., and later to 
Lebanon, Conn., with his two sons, Joseph and Jedediah. Jedediah Woodworth of 
Lebanon, who served in Gen. Putnam's regiment in the campaign about Boston in 
1775, was probably nearly related to Amy Woodworth.

found impossible to trace the exact line of descent. Timothy Clark 
was not quite nineteen years of age at the time of his marriage, in 
1764, and his wife was probably about a year younger. It is not 
known where they lived for a few years after marriage, but it is the 
tradition among their descendants that their two eldest children 
were born in Connecticut, and the third in Grafton, then called 
Thomlinson, Vt. For a number of years before and after the 
Revolution the younger branches of many Connecticut families set- 
tled in towns in New Hampshire and Vermont, in and near the 
valle3 r of the Connecticut river. This is especially true of towns 
in the northern part of Connecticut. Windsor, Lebanon, Wind- 
ham, Ashford, Mansfield and Woodstock made notable contributions 
to the population of the growing towns along the northern frontier. 
Timothy and Amy Clark were among the first to join in the tide 
of emigration that was setting northward. They settled for a short 
time in Grafton, Vt. This was in the year 1768, when the town 
was almost wholly a wilderness. Here in April, 1769, their third 
child was born, said to have been the first male child born in Grafton. 
They soon removed to the adjoining town of Rockingham, Vt., 
which at that time had a population of 225 persons. Aug. 6, 1771, 
Timothy Clark, then of Rockingham, sold his real estate in Grafton, 
consisting of 40 acres of land in lot No. 9 in the sixth range, to 
Abner Songer. In town meeting, Mar. 25, 1772, he was chosen 
one of the assessors of Rockingham. At the same time it was 
" Voted to Let out y e Minister's Lott to the highest bidder. Tim 
Clark bid it of." 

Directly after the battle of Lexington, tidings were brought to 
the towns in southeim New Hampshire and Vermont. A band of 
patriots was gathered from towns on both sides of the Connecticut 
river, and on the morning of Apr. 21, 1775, started on their hurried 
journey to the scene of conflict. In this band there were several 
prominent residents of Rockingham, and among them were Timothy 
Clark, David and John Pulsipher, and William Stearns. Remain- 
ing in Cambridge, these and other recruits were organized into a 
company under the command of Capt. John Marcy, and formed 
part of Col. James Reed's regiment, which took an active part in 
the defence of the rail fence in the battle of Bunker Hill. Timothy 
Clark held the rank of drummer in Capt. Marcy's company, took 
part in the battle, and served from May 7 to Aug. 10, 1775. (N. H. 
State Papers, Vol. 14, p. 104.) The town records of Rockingham 
show that he was one " of those that marcht to Ticonderouge." 

June 23, 1777, he took " the oath of fidelity to be true to the United 
States of America." Mar. 3, 1778, he "took the oath agreeable 



12 

to the Constitution." His name appears on the " Freemen's Boll " 
of Rockingham. 

In town meeting, Mar., 1777, he was chosen tithing man, in Mar., 
1779, constable and collector, and in Mar., 1781, petit juryman. In 
1799 he attended the Supreme and County Court. Although not a 
member of the first church, he was evidently an attendant with his 
family, as the inventory of his estate, shows that he owned " 1 pew 
in the North Meeting house in Rockingham," valued at s20. His 
administrator, Timothy Clark, Jr., conveyed, Mar. 4, 1815, to An- 
drew Dunn "a certain Pew in the meeting or Town House described 
as follows, it being the North West Corner Body Pew in the lower 
floor, said pew not numbered, said property belonging to the Estate 
of Timothy Clark deceased in Rockingham." 

Feb. 5, 1777, Timothy Clark bought from Col. Benjamin Bellows, 
of Walpole, N. H., who was an original proprietor of many pieces of 
real estate in Rockingham, about 90 acres of land in Lot No. 10 in the 
8th Range. The original deed is still in the possession of Miss Julia 
A. Clarke of Saxton's River, who is believed to be the only surviving 
grandchild. May 1, 1778, he bought from Colburn Preston 6 acres, 
being part of Lot No. 11 in the 7th range. He made his home for 
the rest of his life upon this land, which was situated upon the road 
leading from Saxton's River Village, along the east side of the 
grounds of the Vermont Academy, to the old town of Rockingham, 
and about one-half mile from the latter place. The house which he 
built, and in which he lived, is still standing, west of the road and at 
a little distance from it. He kept possession of part of this farm as 
long as he lived, and the in- . «_a 

ventory of his estate includes ,*% f £ /O i J / /Aj 
forty acres in Lot No. 10 in 
the 8th range, and an acre 
and a half in Lot No. 11 in the 7th Range, 
facsimile is of a signature made in 1792. 

The circumstances attending the death of Timothy Clark are some- 
what obscure. In the winter of 1812-13 he went with his wife to 
Hancock, Vt., to visit his daughter Mrs. David Eaton. It is the tra- 
dition in the family that he left his wife there and continued his jour- 
ney to northern Vermont or New York, where his son Simeon was 
serving in the 11th U. S. Infantry. If the correct date of Simeon's 
death at Burlington was Jan. 3, 1813, he may have gone to care for 
him or to secure his effects. In any event, he was taken sick in 
Hancock on his return from the army, and died there in the latter 
part of Feb., 1813. He was buried in the North Hollow Burial 
Ground in Rochester, Vt., where his grave, though not marked by a

stone until 1904, has been identified at the right of that of his son 
Jonathan Rogers Clark, and close beside it. A slate tablet with a 
suitable inscription has been erected by a descendant, to mark both 
graves, an illustration of which appears in these pages. 

After his death, his widow Ama (or Amy) Clark was taken 
home by her eldest son, Timothy, and cared for until her death, 
which occurred about Jan. 4, 1818, when expenses of the funeral 
were charged. Her granddaughter, Miss Julia A. Clarke, who re- 
members her slightly, says that she was buried in the cemetery 
back of the Old Church, but the grave was unmarked and cannot 
now be identified. 

In addition to Timothy Clark's military service in Capt. John 
Marcy's company at Bunker Hill and at Ticonderoga, as already 
described, further service is shown in the volume of " Vermont 
Revolutionary Rolls," printed by the State of Vermont in 1904. 
He served from Sept. 27 to Oct. 20, 1777, in a detachment of a 
company consisting of five men, from Rockingham, " commanded 
by Lieut. Charles Richards in Col. William Williams' regiment of 
militia" (p. 43). Col. Williams' regiment is elsewhere described 
as having been engaged at this time " on an expedition to Ben- 
nington," and may have been present at the surrender of Burgoyne. 
Timothy Clark also served seven days as ensign in Capt. Jonathan 
Holton's company of Rockingham men, having marched sixty miles, 
" in the Alarm in Oct. 17, 1780 " (p. 198). This service was ren- 
dered immediately after the Indian raid upon Royalton, Vt. Again, 
he appears in 1782 on the " Pay Roll of Capt. William Simonds' 
company, Col. Bradley's regiment, raised to assist the sheriff to go 
to Guilford," having served four days and marched forty miles (p. 
608). 

Timothy and Ama Clark had eleven children, whose births were 
recorded in Rockingham town records, Vol. 4, p. 52.

the rest of his life. He was a prominent citizen in the part of the town 
known as " Saxton's River," living about a mile from the village called by 
that name, on the same road with his father. He was an active member 
of the Universalist Society in Saxton's River Village, and was one of the 
church committee in 1841. Nov. 23, 1792, he bought 100 acres of land 
in lot No. 13, in the 11th range, of Dr. Asaph Fletcher of Cavendish, Vt., 
to which he afterwards added about 25 acres, bought Nov. 14, 1811, of 
Roswell Bellows. These two purchases formed the farm on which he 
lived the rest of his life and on which he erected the cottage-house in which 
three generations of the Clarke family have lived, and which is now the 
home of his daughter, Miss Julia A. Clarke, and his grandson, Joseph 
Clarke. This is the second house built on the farm, the first house in 
which he lived for a few years having been situated a few rods north of 
the present. 

June 17, 1844, in his old age, he conveyed his farm of 12G acres to his 
son Albert, who gave a bond to care for him and his wife Sarah during 
their lives and to furnish a suitable support to his sisters, Lucinda and 
Julia Ann, so long as they remained single. 

Timothy Clark was married Dec. 28, 1794, to Sarah Burk, daughter of

11. Ama 6 (or Amy) Clark (Timothy, 5 Ebenezer* Richard* John, 7 
Richard}) was born in Rockingham, Vt., Feb. 10, 1779, and died in 
Granville, Vt., Jan. 28, 1847. She was married in Rockingham, Feb. 18, 
1800, to David Eaton, of Westmiuster, Vt., son of Asa Eaton, who was 
born in Ashford, Conn., March 16, 174G, and was married in Ashford, 
Nov. 5, 1772, to Abigail Goodale. Soon after their marriage David 
Eaton and his wife removed to Rochester, Vt., where, in 1801, he pur- 
chased 100 acres of land, being the whole of Lot 13, Range 1, Division 2. 
Later, in 1810, they removed to Hancock, Vt., and continued to reside 
there and in Rochester and Granville, where he died Feb. 16, 1837, aged

February, 1813, on his return from a visit to the army in Northern New 
York. David Eaton, according to the inscription on the Eaton monument 
in the cemetery at Rochester North Hollow, was " a believer in the final 
holiness and happiness of all men." He was a blacksmith by trade and at 
the time of his death was living in the village of Granville. Both Mr. and 
Mrs. Eaton were Universalists in their religious faith. Mr. Eaton is de- 
scribed as a small man with keen black eyes and rather dark complexion, 
very ambitious and energetic in his trade and a neat and careful penman. 
Mrs. Eaton was a patient invalid for many years, rarely known to smile, 
but a good converser, fond of company and having many friends. She 
would often ask her granddaughter Ellen to read to her from the Bible, 
always from the New Testament.

30, 1822, to Harvey Shipman, son of Edmund and Rebecca (Bigelow) 
Shipman, who was born in Worcester, N. Y., Feb. 8, 1800, and died in 
Newfiekl, N. J., Aug. 5, 1879. Both Harvey Shipman and his wife were 
teachers iu early life, and were especially interested to give their children 
the best schooling within their reach. His regular occupation was farm- 
ing in Rochester, Granville and Royalton, Vt. After the removal of 
then- son, Clark B., to Newfield, N. J., in 1868, they lived in a house 
which they had built on a small piece of land taken from the old farm, 
until age required a change. In 1876 they removed to Newfield, to live 
with their daughter, Mrs. Lee, and on his first night's sleep there Mr. 
Shipman had a stroke from which he never recovered. In his early days 
he was active in the militia and had the rank of captain.

30. David 7 Eaton (Amy "'' [ Clark] Eaton, Timothy, 5 Ebenezer, 4 Rich- 
ard, 5 John, 2 Richard 1 ) was born in Rochester, Vt., Sept. 29, 1805, and 
died in Leicester, Vt., April 18, 1894, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. 
Harriet A. Alden, with whom he lived after the death of his wife in 1884. 
After marriage he settled in Warren, Vt., but in a few years removed to 
Granville, to care fur his father, who had been stricken with paralysis. He 
was a prominent citizen, trusted by his townsmen, and was often called 
upon to settle business controversies and to act as executor or adminis- 
trator of estates. He represented Granville and Rochester for several 
years in the Legislature. He was a Whig in politics till the formation of 
the Republican party, and afterwards a strong Republican, voting for every 
nominee of the party for the Presidency. His interest in the cause of 
freedom in Kansas led him to go to that territory at the time of the struggle 
of 1856 and 1857 and assist in making it a free State. In the spring of 1858, 
after returning from Kansas, he removed to Champaign Co., 111., and re- 
sided there for seven years. In 1862, when his sons, Henry A. and Eugene 
E., serving in the Union Army, were severely wounded in the battle of 



31 

Gettysburg, he went from Illinois to their assistance, and accompanied 
them to the hospital at Bedloe's Island, in New York harbor, and then to 
Brattleboro, Vt., where they were mustered out. They returned with him 
to Illinois and remained there until their recovery. The younger son was 
too badly disabled for further service, but the elder son, Henry A., re- 
enlisted, with his father's approval, and fell in the battle of Poplar Grove 
Church, Va. The -rest of Mr. Eaton's life, after his return from Kansas, 
was spent in Hancock, with the exception of about three years in Roches- 
ter, Vt. He was a Universalist in his religious faith, and assisted in build- 
ing the Church of that denomination in Rochester. His funeral occurred 
in the church in Hancock, and he was buried at the side of his wife and 
near his parents in the burying ground at Rochester North Hollow. 

He was married in Hancock, Vt., Dec. 27, 1832, to Sarah Elmina Perry, 
who was born in Westminster, Vt., Feb. 4, 1813, and died in Hancock, 
Vt., June 17, 1884.

to Bela Ransom Perry, son of John and Lucy (Edgell) Perry, who was 
born in Westminster, Vt., July 23, 1804, and died in Hancock, Vt., April 
7, 1872. He lived in Westminster till his marriage, when he removed to 
Hancock and settled on the farm on which he lived for the rest of his life. 
His parents removed to Hancock with him and died there, his father in 
1833 and his mother in 1853. Mr. Perry was a quiet man, attentive to 
his business and not desiring public office. Yet he held various town 
offices and twice represented the town of Hancock in the Legislature. 
After his death his widow continued to reside with her eldest son on the 
family homestead.

32. Timothy Clakk 7 Eaton (Amy 6 [Clark] Eaton, Timothy? Eben- 
ezer? Richard? John? -Richard 1 ) was born in Hancock, Vt., April 9, 1809, 
and died at East Oakland, Cal., June 28, 1883. He entered on his life 
work at an early age and, as was often the case in those days, with scanty 
preparation through school or professional study. By what means he was 
directed to the ministry is not definitely known. Although of active tem- 
perament, he was less rugged than his brothers ; and there was a tradition 
in the family that while he was suffering from what long threatened to be 
a permanent injury, caused by jumping barefoot on a sharp stub, which 
left fragments of bark in the wound, he made a vow with himself to serve 
seven years any one who would effect a cure. After many remedies had 
been tried in vain, he was taken to the celebrated Dr. Twitchell, of Keene, 
N. 11., who gave him for twenty-live cents a box of ointment that in due 
time produced a perfect healing and delivered him from the fear of per- 
manent lameness. The cure was so simple and seemingly so dispropor- 
tionate to the affliction, that the impressionable boy looked upon it as a 
miracle and could do no less than pay his vow by entering the Lord's ser- 
vice. The story sounds like one made to fit the circumstances, for the 
young preacher's zeal and tireless energy were marvellous. To preach 
the gospel of God's unfailing and boundless love was his one desire, the 
service to which all his powers were consecrated. 

He did not tarry long in his native State, but turned to the great and 
ever-receding " West." He preached wherever he could get a hearing. 
If a place afforded sufficient promise, he remained to organize a parish, and 
perhaps to build a church, always doing missionary work in the surround- 
ing region. The history of a dozen years or more is implied in the fact 
that his six children were born in as many parishes and in four States. 
The death of his wife, in I860, gave new direction to his after labors. She 
was a woman of rare loveliness, of refined and Christian character, devoted 
to her husband and children. " She has left a dear husband," says the 
obituary, " to whom she commended her six dear children for earthly 
watch-care." 

Most faithfully did he fulfil the sacred trust. He remained unmarried, 
and all his subsequent labors in the ministry were chiefly determined by 
the needs of his children. He returned with most of them to his kindred 
in Vermont, where for a while they were at school, and he journeyed up 



33 

and down the State as he found opportunity to preach. The West, how- 
ever, was their home, and in Illinois, in Iowa, and in Kansas, sometimes 
on a farm, sometimes in a town, he made a home for them or they for him, 
until at last he died while on a visit to those who had found their abiding 
place on the Pacific Coast. The affection with which he was cherished 
by his children to the close of his life was the imperishable witness and 
spontaneous return of parental love and devotion. 

It was through his fine and sensitive nature, through depth and sincerity 
of feeling, through his exemplification of the " gospel of love," rather than 
through strong intellectual qualities, that he was sustained for more than 
fifty years in the Christian ministry. He was not a great preacher, in the 
ordinary acceptation of the term. He was not born for controversy, al- 
though he fearlessly declared the doctrine of universal salvation in count- 
less places where the message was regarded with horror and encountered 
bitter opposition ; and it may well be that his manner of presenting the 
new truths was none the less effectual and lasting. Even the tones of his 
voice, in his best days, were eloquent with appeal and persuasion. Few 
men were more loving or more beloved. 

The possibilities of development from such humble beginnings as for 
many years it was his privilege to establish, may be illustrated by an inci- 
dent, which at the same time is so characteristic of Mr. Eaton's methods 
and personality that it may close this account of his interesting half century 
as a clergyman. 

In the early years of his ministry, while he was preaching in Chatauqua 
Co., N. Y., he held service at a place called Salem Cross Roads. He 
preached from the text: "We love Him because He first loved us," and 
of course set over against the current belief in the endless punishment of 
the wicked the doctrine of God's infinite love. At the close of his service 
a superannuated Methodist preacher in the congregation rose to his feet, 
trembling with wrath, and said, "That young man is an emissary of the Devil, 
he is the Devil's preacher, and it is a damnable heresy," with much more 
of a similar sort. Mr. Eaton made no extended rejoinder, but gave no- 
tice that he would be there again in four weeks and would preach on the 
scripture passage that the opponent cited in proof of the doctrine of endless 
misery. 

There was present a Methodist class leader with his wife and four sons, 
from ten years of age down, and this man, after conferring with his wife, 
at the close of the meeting, invited the preacher to their house to spend 
the night. There was singing and praying and examining of the scriptures 
until past midnight, the preacher earnestly praying for greater light and a 
broader faith and more of the good Master's forgiving mercy and charity. 
In the morning he sold the class leader several theological books from the 
stock which he always carried, and when the four boys came to bid him 
good bye, he left in the hand of each a silver quarter. 



34 

At the end of the four weeks many people assembled, for it was a neigh- 
borhood in which opposition to the young preacher's views was intense, 
and it was thought he would be put down by the venerable clergyman who 
had previously attacked him. At the close of Mr. Eaton's sermon, how- 
ever, the opponent, accepting the invitation to reply, instead of considering 
the arguments that had been advanced, indulged in a half-hour's tirade 
against the preacher, his denomination, and his doctrines. " He was so 
abusive," says Mr. Eaton in a letter written forty years afterwards, from 
which this account is chiefly taken, " that I made no rejoinder, but, asking 
the congregation to search the scriptures and judge for themselves, was 
about to close the meeting, when Mr. Pullman" (the class leader before 
referred to) "rose and requested the privilege of speaking. It soon ap- 
peared that in four weeks he had advanced far into the light of God's 
truth. For forty minutes he spoke in a calm, clear voice of the great 
change in his religious sentiments and of the joy and happiness he experi- 
enced in a knowledge of the nobler views of God — His moral government, 
man's duty and final glorious destination. He said it was the happiest 
period of his life, and the believers in the great salvation were encouraged 
by his conversion and by the influence he gave to our cause through his 
unsullied life and example. Under the blessing of God it was a great tri- 
umph for me to be the humble instrument in His hands of bringing him 
into our faith, whose sons also were influenced in forming their characters 
by my labors at that time." 

The oldest and the youngest of the four sons became eminent preachers 
in the Universalist denomination, Rev. Royal H. and Rev. James M. Pull- 
man, D.D. The other sons, Albert and George M., became even more widely 
known in connection with the palace car. " More than twenty-five years 
afterwards," continues Mr. Eaton, "I called by appointment at the office 
in the railroad station, and when I asked if Mr. Pullman was there, he 
heard my voice and exclaimed, ' I will furnish you with a ticket, for you 
gave us the first quarter of a dollar we ever had.' " 

" How much influence I had in introducing the incipient stage of a re- 
ligious character, or of laying the foundation of the millionaire, I know 
not. I could refer to many similar instances of persons embracing our 
faith, but none more significant in its happy influences." 

The fit conclusion of this long story is a quotation from a letter written 
by Mr. Eaton from California only a few weeks before his death, in which 
he speaks of " the crowning excellence of my visit thus far," " the unex- 
pected happiness of meeting, in San Francisco, Dr. J. M. Pullman and 
George M. Pullman, whose father's house was ever a welcome house to 
me in my early ministry," " these good brothers, endeared to me by the 
ies of unbroken friendship of more than forty years."

44. Harriet Woodbdry s Clarke {Albert? Timothy? Timothy? Eb- 
enezer? Richard? John? Richard 1 ) was born near Saxton's River Village, 
Vt., Aug. 8, 1860, and died Dec. 30, 1902, at the homestead of her grand- 
father, Timothy Clark, where she was born. 

She early manifested an unusual musical talent. She spent her girl- 
hood on the homestead farm and there drew inspiration from the sounds of 



42 

nature, the songs of the birds and the murmur of the brook flowing through 
the valley near by. At a very early age she would sing the popular melody 
" Dixie," with surprising strength and correctness. At the age of nine 
she began singing in the choir of the Baptist Church at Saxton's River, 
standing on a pedestal made of hymn books. Even then, in her solo work, 
her voice was remarkable for its purity and sweetness of tone. Her talents 
as a singer made her widely known through the region where she spent 
her youth. Later years of hard study in Boston and elsewhere followed. 
Testimonials from many of the best artists in New England and other parts 
of the country speak in the highest terms of her ability as a singer. At 
musical festivals and conventions she was a well known favorite and will 
long be remembered for her clear, perfectly cultivated and admirably true, 
sweet voice. 

From 1888 to 1898 she was soprano in the choir of the First Unitarian 
Church, Walnut Street, Brookline, Mass., doing much concert work in the 
meantime. She was a member of the famous Cecilia Club of Boston, and 
at their rehearsals she was occasionally assigned as soloist. Her voice 
blended so perfectly with that of her choir contralto, Miss Ellen Louise 
Woodbury, that they were long inseparable and were chums. Miss Wood- 
bury is now a director of music in the Boston public schools. Miss Clarke's 
sunny disposition and personal attractiveness won for her a wide circle of 
friends. 

Being naturally of a frail physique, her health became impaired. An 
attack of pneumonia left her lungs in such a weak condition that she sought 
the climate of Colorado, where she sojourned two years, followed by a 
winter in Florida. But her decline continued and, yearning for the old 
home and friends, she insisted on returning to Saxton's River, where she 
quietly fell asleep at the home which she so dearly loved, beloved and 
mourned by all who knew her. 

45. Charles Timothy 8 Clarke (Albert," Timothy? Timothy? Eben- 
ezerf Richard? John,' 2 Richard 1 ) was born near Saxton's River Village, 
Vt., Jan. 7, 1862. He spent his boyhood on the family homestead with 
his father and was educated in the public schools of Rockingham. At the 
age of nineteen he went to Boston and entered a private hospital, a branch 
of the Massachusetts General Hospital. He was connected with this insti- 
tution for five years, and soon after leaving it began the study of the profes- 
sion of dentistry. He was in the dental office of Kidder & Breed, in Bos- 
ton, for a short time and later with Dr. A. J. Parker of Bellows Falls, Vt. 
In 1886 he entered the Boston Dental College, now known as the Tufts 
Dental College, and in 1888 began the practice of dentistry in his native 
town. He has continued in active practice to the present time with the 
exception of one year spent in Massachusetts and on the coast of Maine, 
and is now settled in Bellows Falls, with a branch office in Walpole, N. H.

54. Dea.n 8 Clarke (Jedediah, 1 Jonathan Rogers, 6 Timothy , 5 Ebenezer* 
Richard* John, 2 Richard 1 ) was born in Royalton, Vt., Oct. 22, 1837. After 
receiving an academical education in Rochester and Randolph, he studied 
medicine at the Medical College in Castletou, Vt., and at the University 
of Michigan in Ann Arbor. But he was prevented by ill health from 
graduating and has never practised. He resided for many years on the 
Pacific Coast and has since lived in Boston, engaged in literary pursuits. 
His health has always been delicate. He has been twice married : first, in 
Sudbury, Vt., in 1863, to Harriet Horton Bardy, who died after some 
years, and, second, in Paw Paw, Mich., to Jennie S. Shilling, who has 
since died. He has had no children. 

Early in life Mr. Clarke became interested in the phenomena and phi- 
losophy of Spiritualism and was for many years a popular lecturer on the 
subject. Ill health compelled him to abandon speaking, but he has con- 
tinued to write at intervals. He Las occasionally acted as associate editor 
of the " Banner of Light," in Boston. During his life he has had many 
discussions, usually with clergymen, and has always emerged with credit. 
His writings embrace many poems, mostly ethical and spiritual, but he has 
never collected them in a volume. One of them, a song on " The Old 
North Hollow," appears in this record, having been sung at the dedica- 
tion of the Memorial to Timothy Clark. 

He was generally regarded by his fraternity as a leading exponent of 
their cult ; was chosen as State Missionary by the Michigan, New York 
and Pennsylvania State Associations, and by the National Association to 
represent it at an international congress assembled in Paris under the aus- 
pices of the Universal Exposition of 1900, to which he went. His lecture 
tours extended over thirty-seven of the States and into British Columbia, 
and, although his cause was not a popular one, he was everywhere treated 
with courtesy by the secular press, whose editors often interviewed him and 
reported his lectures or opened their columns to his prose and poetical con- 
tributions. His articles have appeared in more than fifty American jour- 
nals and some of them have been copied into English books and journals. 

An instance of the force of his oratory when highly inspired, occurred 
at Paw Paw, Mich., in 1889. He was addressing an audience of 1500 
people upon "The Equality of Human Rights," and they became so en- 
thusiastic that three times they arose to their feet and cheered him vocife- 
rously. x\mong a hundred who congratulated him at the close, Old 
Sojourner Truth, a distinguished colored anti-slavery advocate, timidly 
came to him saying, " Chile, I'm an ole woman, and have been to lots of 
conventions, have heard lots of speakers, Garrison, Sumner, Phillips, and 
lots more," and then she added, with great vehemence, " and you beat 'em 
all"! But he was always too modest to push himself, and, if it be per- 



48 



mi 



issible to compare small things with great, it may be said of him, as Kip- 



ling said of General Roberts 



" 'E's little, but Vs wise, 
And 'e does not advertise." 



55. Albert 8 Clarke (Jedediah, 1 Jonathan Rogers* Timothy? Eben- 
ezer, 4 Richard, 3 John, 2 Richard 1 ) was born in Granville, Vt., Oct. 13, 1840. 
He spent his boyhood on a farm in Rochester, Vt., graduated at Barre 
Academy, Vt., in 185!', and studied and practised law in Montpelier, Vt.) 
from 1859 to 1865. In August, 1862, he enlisted in the 13th resriment 
Vermont Vol. Infantry, was thrice promoted, commanded his company at 
the battle of Gettysburg, and captured cannon and prisoners. He was 
Colonel on the staff of Governor Dillingham of Vermont in 1865, and 
member of the Vermont Senate in 1874. He was president of the Ver- 
mont & Canada R. R. Co., just before its consolidation with the Central 
Vermont, about 1883, and while in St. Albans bore a leading part in the 
most noted railroad and political controversy that ever occurred in that 
state, and which lasted more than ten years. 

lie was a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 
1896, '97, and '98, and Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means ; 
a delegate to the National Republican Convention in 1892, and Judge 
Advocate General, G. A. R., in 1897. He was in 1904 chosen Vice-Pres- 
ident of the Society of the Army of the Potomac. He was a member of 
the United States Industrial Commission in 1899 and 1900 and its chair- 
man in 1901 and 1902. This commission was composed of live U. S. Sen- 
ators, five Representatives, and nine appointees of the President. It issued 
nineteen volumes, containing more than 17,000 closely printed pages, made 
recommendations to Congress and to the several State legislatures, and its 
work is regarded by economists and statesmen throughout the world as of 
great value for reference. 

He was editor and most of the time proprietor of the St. Albans, Vt. 
Messenger from 1868 to 1880; was on the staff of the Boston Daily Adver- 
tiser from 1883 to 1885, editor and manager of the Rutland. Vt.. Herald 
from 1886 to 1889, and editor of the Home Market Bulletin, now the Pro- 
tectionist Magazine, since 1889. He is author of many lectures and ad- 
dresses on economic and kindred subjects. He received the honorary 
degree of Master of Arts from Dartmouth College, in 1888. For the past 
fifteen years he lias been secretary and manager of the Home Market Club 
of Boston, the largest protective tariff organization in the United States. 

He resides in Boston, and in January, 1905, was chosen President of the 
Vermont Association, the largest of the State societies in that city, his 
predecessors having been Henry O. Houghton, the famous publisher ; Wal- 
bridge A. Field, Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court ; Alanson

captured by the Indians and taken to Canada in February, 1704; 
also from Samuel Williams (Harvard, 1761), afterwards Hollis 
professor in Harvard, LL.D., of Oxford and Edinburgh Univer-

tral Vermont Railroad, and has been in the wholesale marble trade 
in Philadelphia for twenty-five years. His wife, Lucy Cram ton,

56. Almon 8 Clarke (Jedediah, 1 Jonathan Rogers* Timothy, 5 Ebenezer*

a twin brother of Albert — and died in Pensacola, Fla., May 1, 1904. He 
was brought up with his brothers on his father's farm in Rochester, Vt. 
He studied medicine with his brother, Dean, at the Medical College in 
Castleton, Vt., in the office of Dr. William M. Huntington, in Rochester, 
and at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, from which he gradu- 
ated in medicine in 1862. August 11, 1862, he was commissioned by Gov. 
Holbrook assistant surgeon of the Tenth Vermont Infantry with the rank 
of first lieutenant, and at once entered active service. He participated, 
with his regiment, in most of the great battles of the Army of the Potomac, 
such as Mine Run, Winchester, Cedar Creek, the Wilderness, Cold Harbor, 
Bermuda Hundred, where he was knocked down by an exploding shell while 
dressing a wound, and the battles in front of Petersburg, in March, 1865. 
He kept close to the firing line, where he could give first attention to the 
wounded men, and became noted for his skill in surgery, performing many 
difficult feats in hospitals. April 5, 1865, he was appointed surgeon of the 
First Vermont Cavalry, with the rank of Major, and served till the close 
of the war in the Third Cavalry division, commanded by Major-Gen. G. 
A. Custer, and rode with them in the advance in the great review at 



50 

Washington. By his geniality, kindliness, though tfulness and prompti- 
tude, he gained the respect and love of officers and men. 

After the war he removed to the West and practised medicine for twenty- 
nine years in Sheboygan Falls and Sheboygan, Wis. He became Profes- 
sor of Physical Diagnosis in the Milwaukee Medical College, president of

where he was a market gardener till 1882, when, with his son, Henry 
Eaton, he went to Montana, reaching his present home in the Judith Val- 
ley, June 1. He was one of the first white settlers in that region. He 
was joined by his two elder daughters the same year, and several years 
later by his wife and the other children, when it had become certain that 
the settlement would be permanent. He took with him to his new home 
only a team, a few tools and provisions for a few months. His supply of 
provisions for the first winter was fortunately increased by two buffaloes 
which he shot Nov. 28 of that year, the first and last wild ones that he 
ever saw. Going on the mountain with a neighbor to cut poles he saw 
among the foot hills some animals which he suspected to be buffaloes. 
Though not much of a sportsman, he borrowed his neighbor's gun, de- 
scended to the neighborhood of the game and killed two with three shots. 
In order to save the meat, he and his neighbor skinned them during the 
night with dull jackknives. He has been a successful farmer and rancher,

sides in Lewistown, Montana.

teen to nineteen he worked at farm work in the summer, taught school in 
the winter and attended Royalton Academy " off and on." In 1855 he 
entered Middlebury College at the age of nineteen, having acquired, by 
leading this healthful and industrious life during his youth, the blessing of 
a sound mind in a sound body and an unusual experience of real life, as 
well as a rare capacity for persistent mental labor. He partly supported 
himself through Middlebury College by teaching winters and working 
summers, and easily took a high rank in a class which included a number 
of men since distinguished. After graduating in 1859 he took charge of 
an academy in South Woodstock, Vt.', and remaining there four years 
raised it from a decayed to a prosperous condition. The year 1863-64 he 
devoted to soliciting funds for a modern academy to be located in Ver- 
mont and controlled by the Universalist denomination of the State. He 
was successful with others in raising the needed funds, and in the year 
1870 Goddard Seminary in Barre, Vt., was opened to pupils. Prof. Ship- 
man has guarded the interests of the Seminary with watchful care, having 
been president of the Board of Trustees for many years and member of 
the Executive Committee from the beginning.

Early in 1864 he was offered and declined the "Walker Special In- 
spectorship " in Tufts College, but later in the year accepted the profes- 
sorship of Rhetoric, Logic and English Literature, which he has held con- 
tinuously to the present time. Since 1900 he has been Dean of the Col- 
lege of Letters. In February, 1865, he was ordained in Vermont as a 
minister of the gospel. He has never taken charge of a parish, but has 
supplied pulpits to a considerable extent in addition to his college work, 
and has also delivered many miscellaneous addresses. He holds the de- 
grees of A.M. from Middlebury, 1862, of D.D. from St. Lawrence Uni- 
versity, 1882, and of LL.D. from Tufts, 1890, and Middlebury, 1900. He 
is a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and the Phi Beta 
Kappa Society, and also of the Union Lodge, F. and A. M. of Middle- 
bury, which he joined when in college. In January, 1905, he was chosen 
Chaplain of the Vermont Association of Boston. 

In June, 1899, he was granted leave of absence for one year, which he 
spent in travel, giving three months to a Western trip and going twice 
abroad. His second visit to Europe, extending to Spain and Greece, was 
the special gift of many college friends. 

He is a Republican in politics and a Universalist in religious faith. He 
has incidentally shown his kindly and helpful spirit and his unwearied in- 
dustry by his work in gathering the materials for the history of the de- 
scendants of his grandmother, Mrs. Amy Clark Eaton, for this sketch. 

He was married in Somerville, Mass., July 28, 1868, to Martha Frances 
Willis, daughter of Rev. John Howard and Charlotte (Gleason) Willis.

72. Henry Augustus 8 Eaton (David, 1 Amy 6 [ GlarJc] Eaton, Timo- 
thy, 5 Ebenezerf Richard? John? Richard 1 ) was born in Granville, Vt., 
Nov. 8, 1838. He graduated at Middlebury College, Vt., and intended to 
study law. During the Free Soil contest, and soon after his eighteenth 
birthday, he responded to the call from Kansas and remained there until 
the issue between Freedom and Slavery was decided. Thoughtful and 
eager for knowledge from his youth, he secured a liberal education, 
largely by his own exertions, graduating with much honor from Middle- 
bury College in 1862. He at once enlisted for nine months in Company 
A, 16th Vermont Volunteers, and was the unanimous choice of his com- 
pany for captain. The regiment took part in the last two days of the bat- 
tle of Gettysburg, occupying an important position in the line. There he 
distinguished himself by remarkable coolness and an almost reckless brav- 



60 

ery, until severely wounded. At the expiration of his service, and even 
before he could move with safety, he zealously worked in Bethel, Vt., to 
raise a company for three years' service in the Seventeenth Vermont regi- 
ment, and was again elected captain. The regiment shared in the terrible 
battles of the Wilderness and was almost annihilated. Captain Eaton had 
been detached from his command to serve as commissary, and afterwards 
as aid on Gen. Griffin's staff. At his own request he was relieved to return to 
this regiment, of which he had command during the absence of the wounded 
colonel. At the battle of Poplar Grove Church, Virginia, Sept. 30, 1864, he 
was killed while leading his men. Not lon^ before the battle he had been 
commissioned major, and shortly after, before his fate was known, he was 
made lieutenant colonel. His heart was with the defenders of the Union, 
and he was ready to die in the discharge of duty. Everywhere his faith- 
fulness and ability secured confidence. As an officer, " his eye was quick 
and accurate; his self-possession never forsook him; his fidelity was un- 
questionable and his ardor never cooled." His name, with the names of 
forty other Rochester soldiers who gave their lives to their country, is in- 
scribed on the soldiers' monument in that town, and the Grand Army Post 
is named for him. It is the testimony of all who knew Colonel Eaton 
that he was nearly faultless. He had no bad habits ; he was pure in heart ; 
he loved his fellow-men ; he was as modest as he was brave. Such a char- 
acter was worthy of the heroic age in which he lived and the great cause 
for which he died. 

73. Eugene Edgar 8 Eaton (David,' Amy* [Clark] Eaton, Timothy, 5 
Ebenezer* Richard* Join).- Richard 1 ) was orn in Rochester, Vt., June 
23, 1843. lie was educated in the public schools and academies in the 
vicinity of his native town. He studied law, graduating from Harvard 
Law School in L868, and was admitted to the bar in Rutland, Vt., in the 
same year. He was in the office of Col. \Y. G. Veazey, and assisted him 
as Supreme Court reporter, and after a brief practice in Kansas and Col- 
orado, removed to Massachusetts in 1*7*. He opened an otfice in Boston 
and made his residence in Maiden, lie still resides in Maiden, where he 
was a member of the Board of Aldermen in 1892 and 1893. He was 
married in 1*71 to Luriette Avery, of Wakefield, Mass., and has no 
children. 

He had the good fortune to serve as First Sergeant of his brother's com- 
pany, A, Sixteenth Vermont Volunteers, which was one of the regimeuts 
of Stannard's brigade that made the famous flank movement against Pick- 
ett's column in the repulse of Longstreet's assault at Gettysburg, July 3, 
LSi'i'l. Near the close of that encounter he was fearfully wounded, a shell 
tearing out a portion of his neck and shoulder. But he clung to his rifle, 
approached his Colonel and saluted, and modestly asked permission to go 
to the rear. " You shall have it, my brave fellow," replied Colonel Veazey 



61 

(who when he was Commander in Chief of the Grand Anny of the Re- 
public related the event to Col. Albert Clarke, who has contributed this 
sketch) " and if you are not able to go alone I will send a man with you." 
But the plucky sergeant thought he could go alone and he went, until he 
fell from loss of blood and was picked up by an ambulance. He and the 
captain were taken to the same hospital aud were before long watched 
over and attended by their father, who had come on from Illinois. He did 
not recover in time to re-enter the service, and so resumed his studies.

Page 9. That Ebenezer Clark learned a trade is shown by a deed on 
record in Salem, Mass., dated before his removal to Mansfield, 
Conn. In this deed of land in Rowley, he describes himself as 
" chairmaker, of Ipswich." It is not unlikely that he practised this 
trade in Mansfield.

NOTE ON THE CLARKE HOUSE IN ROWLEY, MASS. 



There is some uncertainty as to when the old Clarke house in Rowley, 
an engraving of which from a recent photograph forms the frontispiece of 
this volume, was built, or by whom. It appears by deeds on record in 
Salem that John Clarke, son of Richard the immigrant, in 1712 deeded his 
property to his three sons — Jonathan, Judah and Richard. To Jonathan 
he gave the easterly part of the house he (John) lived iu and the use of 
one half of the cellar. 

To Judah he gave the land on which his (Judah's) house stood, and par- 
cels of lands elsewhere. 

To Richard he gave " one and one-half acres of land on which said 
Richard's house now stands." 

Afterwards Jonathan deeded to his son Moses one half of the house 
in which he lived, situated on Bradford Street ; also land lying westerly of 
Prospect Hill. 

As the house now standing bears internal evidence of having been part- 
ly built at different times and for two families, it may well be the one built 
by John and occupied by him and his son Jonathan and later by Jonathan 
and his son Moses. If this is correct, the date of its erection must have 
been between 1675 and 1700. 

It may, however, be the house built by Richard, 3 because it stands upon 
al| acre lot, and this is the only lot conveyed by John to his children 
which answers that description. Richard was a man of growing means 
and family and may have added to his original house. 

It is tradition in Rowley that the house of Richard, the immigrant, 
which was probably of logs and with a thatched roof, stood a few rods 
west of the present house and upon the same 1| acre tract. 

As Richard 1 appears to have disposed of most of his property to his 
children, John and Esther, before he made his will iu 1G73, and did not 
leave any real estate by will, the 1| acre tract that he obtained from Thomas 
Elathorpe between 1643 and 1661 is beyond a doubt the lot on which the 
house now stands, although no record of the conveyance has been found. 

If the house was built by Richard, 3 the time must have been prior to 
1712. The heavy oak timbers, the massive chimney and fireplaces and the 
lean-to or low slant of the roof on the back were equally characteristic of 
the last quarter of the 17th or the first quarter of the 18th centuries; but 
some large bullets found by the present owner in a partition which he was 
changing indicate the earlier period. 



AN ANCESTRAL TABLET DEDICATED. 



Interesting Family and Neighborhood Gathering at Rochester, 

Vt., August 30, 1904. 



[From the Randolph ( Vt.) Herald.'] 

An event of more than ordinary interest took place in Rochester North 
Hollow, Tuesday, Aug. 30, 1904, when the Clarke, Eaton and Goodno 
families gathered for a reunion and picnic. A general invitation had been 
extended to the people of Rochester, Hancock and Granville, and upwards 
of 400 assembled to participate in the pleasures of the occasion. 

An interesting feature of the occasion was the dedication of a tablet in 
the North Hollow burial ground to the memory of Timothy Clark, a soldier 
of the Revolution, and Jonathan Rogers Clark, who lost his life in a charity 
bee in LSI 2. Long before the li ;e appointed, a large concourse assem- 
bled at the cemetery. After an hour or two of pleasant intercourse, Col. 
Albert Clarke, secretary of the Home Market Club, Boston, called the peo- 
ple to order. The dedicatory prayer was offered by Rev. Frank E. Adams, 
of Rochest. r. Col. Clarke related the circumstance of finding the grave 
of his great-grandfather, only a year or two ago, and said that this gather- 
ing was the result of that discovery, 

A quartette consisting of Milo M. Ball, Edward Morse, Will A. Chaffee 
and Fay Webber sang the >¥ Star Spangled Banner." 

Col. Clarke read the inscriptions on the tablet, and explained that, al- 
though the place where they were assembled abounded in memorials of 
departed friends, the present occasion was not for mourning but rather for 
rejoicing and for thoughts upon services and sacrifices for the country. 

After the exercises at the cemetery, the company repaired to the picnic 
ground under the trees at the Four Corners, mar by. Very complete prep- 
arations had been made by the people of North Hollow for promoting the 
comfort and pleasure of the company. A table 108 feet long had been 
provided, a platform for speaking erected, and arrangements for the care 
of horses had been made. Those who could not be accommodated at the 
tables disposed themselves in little groups at convenient points. Food was 
abundant, as nearly everyone had contributed something to the supply. 

After dinner Col. Clarke called the company to order and expressed his 
thanks to all who had aided in the movement. 

Letters were read from several who expected to be present but were 
unable to do so. Among them were Prof. W. R. Shipman of Tufts Col- 
lege, Frank G. Clark of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, aud Dr. C. D. Clark of Min- 
neapolis, Kansas.

Col. Clarke said that improvements were to be made in the cemetery. 
Timothy Clark was not the only Revolutionary soldier buried here. There 
were Amos Chaffee and Kiles Paul, and perhaps others. Rochester has 
the unique distinction of having furnished more soldiers in the Civil War 
than any other town of the same population in the United States. The 
soldiers' monument stands as a perpetual reminder. There were four only 
sons from Rochester who were killed in battle. 

In introducing Mr. Thomas Bellows Peck, of Walpole, N. H., Col, 
Clarke said of himself that he did not know enough to trace out the 
line, but he did know enough to find the right man to do it. Mr. Peck 
said that it was rather a dangerous experiment to ask a dry genealogist to 
make an after-dinner speech, but he was not much of a genealogist anyway. 
He undertook to trace out his mother's family and made a book, and ever 
since had been trying to get people to buy copies. An ancestor possessing 
strong traits of character transmits them to his descendants. Timothy 
Clark was a man of such character. History does not tell us that he was 
a religious man, but he was a righteous man. He had the qualities needed 
by a pioneer — courage, enterprise and staying power. The same qualities 
have been displayed by his descendants. They have been a race of patri- 
otic soldiers and pioneers. Many of them served their country in the war 
of 1812 and in the War for the Union, and very many have been pioneers 
in the settlement of the Middle States and the far West. Many of the 
settlers in Vermont came from Massachusetts and Connecticut. Thev left 
records behind them in those States, but brought none with them. Hence 
it is sometimes extremely difficult to trace their ancestry. The search for 
the ancestry of Timoth}' Clark, undertaken at the request of Col. Clarke, 
occupied nearly two years, and was extremely interesting. It involved 
much hunting in the records of towns in Connecticut. He proved to have 
been a native of Mansfield, Conn., and a descendant, through his father, 
Ebenezer Clark, from Richard Clarke, one of the first settlers of Rowley, 
Mass., in 1639. The family was honorable in itself and was connected by 
marriage with the best families in Northern Connecticut and Eastern Mas- 
sachusetts. Timothy Clark was one of the first settlers of Grafton, Vt., 
and a few years later of Rockingham, Vt. He served, as a drummer, in a 
New Hampshire regiment in the battle of Bunker Hill, and with Vermont 
men at Ticonderosfa. 

Col. Clarke said that his brother, Dean, took so much interest in the 
occasion that he had written a poem for it. The poem was sung by the 
quartette to the tune of "The Old Oaken Bucket." It is an interesting 
coincidence that the tune chosen was written by Samuel Woodworth, a de- 
scendant of Walter Woodworth of Scituate, Mass., who was likewise the 
ancestor of Amy Woodworth, wife of Timothy Clark, and great-grandmother 
of Dean, the writer of this song, who did not then know the relationship. 
The poem was as follows :

THE OLD NORTH HOLLOW. 

How dear to our hearts are the scenes of our childhood, 

When after long absence their sight we renew : 
The grand old Green Mountains, their mantle of wildwood, 

Whose varied rich colors enchant our fond view; 
A peaceful green valley where nature reposes, 

Where thrift and contentment in modesty dwell, 
As lovely as that which was promised to Moses — 

The dear old North Hollow we all love so well. 
The grand old North Hollow, the mountain-girt Hollow. 

Whose voices and echoes retain their old spelL 

Our sturdy old grandsires discovered this Hollow 

And opened its fields to the light of the sun ; 
Their labors our fathers were eager to follow, 

Completing the clearings which they had begun. 
No longer we see those dear, honest, old neighbors, 

They've gone like the trees which obeyed them and fell: 
But here are the scenes, and the fruits of their labors, 

The homesteads whereon their descendants now dwell. 
Ancestral North Hollow, our kindred's home Hollow, 

Our bosoms with pride for your pioneers swell. 

'Twas here that our parents toiled hard and provided 

Good homes where we grew up to manhood's estate, 
And sad was the day when the children divided, 

And each for himself went to battle with fate. 
Those years of hard labor from March to December, 

To raise our own living and something to sell, 
Each farm boy and girl too will always remember, 

And to the grandchildren their hardships will tell. 
The stony North Hollow, the wall-fenced old Hollow, 

The tough-soiled old Hollow where no manna fell. 

Our parents believed in a school education, 

Tho' scant was the book lore possessed by themselves; 
They well knew that knowledge ennobles the station 

Of him who with brawn for his livelihood delves; 
And fondly they thought that some child rarely gifted 

Might shine where earth's great ones supposedly dwell; 
So o'er the long roads, often bleak and high drifted, 

The dear old red schoolhouse we poured to pell-mell. 
O high-souled North Hollow, the school-lighted Hollow, 

Of some of whose scholars Fame's tablets now tell. 

And now to the scenes in the valley before us 
We bid a reluctant but cheerful "good bye." 

Ere long we shall go to the parents who bore us, 
Whose beautiful home is in realms upon high. 



83 

But ne'er we'll forget the dear lovely old Hollow, 
Where many long years it was joyous to dwell, 

And oft will return as the swift-flying swallow 

Comes back to the nest where he broke from his shell. 

dear old North Hollow, the blessed old Hollow, 
The tears dim our eyes as we bid you farewell. 

At the conclusion of the singing Mr. A. K. Harvey called for three 
cheers for the poem, its author and the singers, and they were given right 
heartily. 

Rev. Ransom A. Greene was next introduced as one who had been pastor 
of one of the largest churches of Lowell for 27 years. Mr. Greene said he 
wished to express his personal sense of deep obligation to Col. Clarke for 
the work he has done. It takes great perseverance and patience to trace 
out an ancestral line. We are gathered today on sacred ground. It is 
sacred in a double sense. It is sacred because it is God's land, and sacred 
because of the associations connected with it. The interests of many of 
us are in other States. When vacation comes my face turns in this direc- 
tion as home. Our forward look is not one of doubt and despondency. 
We look into faces, we clasp hands, we hear voices of the olden time. The 
future is one of hope. 

Col. Clarke said that a census of the company indicated that 400 were 
present. Why cannot we consider ourselves the 400 ? By request, " The 
Star Spangled Banner " was sung again. 

Hon. Eugene E. Eaton of Maiden, Mass., was introduced, with a refer- 
ence to* his gallant service at Gettysburg. The occasion was one of great 
joy to him. He was glad that so many of his old friends were alive and 
blessed with prosperity. " I was so ignorant that I did not know the name 
of my great-grandfather, Timothy Clark. He was of the bone and sinew 
of the State — a sturdy son of the soil." He paid a high tribute to Col. 
Clarke, who had done much to educate the people of Massachusetts and 
of the nation in things pertaining to material prosperity. 

Mr. Ernest Chase expressed the thanks of the assembly to all who had 
planned and helped to make the occasion so successful. 

The audience joined in the singing of " America " and soon separated, 
with the hope that at no distant day the pleasant experience might be re- 
peated.

CONTINUATION OF RECORD. 



In making entries on these blank pages, it will be well to begin each by 
referring to the printed page upon which the record of the family concerned 
is given. For example : 

Continued from p. , 

and then note the birth, marriage or death, with date and residence, of the 
person, being careful to make the parentage unmistakable. 

In this way each family can keep its own record complete and note 
changes in other branches whenever reported. 

This continuation will be of inestimable value to future generations and 
will make possible and easy a more extended genealogy at some time 
hereafter.
