GUNN LIBRARY CIVIL WAR

 

Letters from the Battlefield: Stories of Washington's Civil War Soldiers

The exhibit traced the evolution of Washington from a slavery-supporting community to one that came out strongly on the side of the abolitionist forces. Civil War letters, pictures and artifacts from both local families and the collection of the Museum were used to explore the lives of Washington's soldiers, sharing their stories of bravery and horror.

It's quite likely there are childhood friends among this list.

ii Charles Alvin, b. July 6, 1836. or 46? Five years in Civil War ; Second Lieutenant. Sailed, about 1880, as steward, on a voyage to Africa ; not heard from since. Supposed to have been lost at sea. Neglected to give name of vessel he sailed on.(Civil War seems correct. Not sure about the other information.Many mysteries.)

Must have been born by 1844 or 45
unless his parents signed off to enter service before age 17.

Looks like our Charles A. Northrop, but no confirmation. The published genealogy is quite sketchy on our line. It is one of the "unconnected" lines and at very least omits information and mispells names of places & people..

It has this Charles as "Sailed about 1880, as steward, on a voyage to Africa; not heard from since. Supposed to have been lost at sea. Neglected to gice name of vessel he sailed on." This may be true, but it could be a polite way of avoiding mention of a divorce "for misconduct".

It's not too hard to imagine that five years in the Civil War would have taken a tremendous toll -- possibly to the extent of what we now call PTSD. So it is possible that he suffered serious disruptions in his life.

However, if it is our Charles, he had a son I'd like to track.

Amos Northrop b ~ 1776-80 (census dates)

The prosperity of the town of Kent was checked with the advent of the railroad. It was once a flourishing community when every night twenty- one two and four horse teams could be seen entering the town from the direction of Quaker hill loaded with iron ore to be cast into pigs and then hauled thirty miles to Poughkeepsie to market. The crack of the whips of so many drivers is gone and the charm of the town now lies in its quietness and solitude.

.....The period of the settlement of Kent was that of Connecticut's first attack of the western fever, and this is how it was brought on. As has been said, but little value was attached to the teritory of Litchfield county, before the beginning of the last century. There was lan<l enough nearer the center of the colony, and the population was still too limited for the peopling of new towns. But after the reinstatement of the colonial charter in 1694, and the consequent restored security of the colony, enterprise, which had languished during the reign of James, revived, the population of the colony increased, and inquiry began to be made for territory for new settlements. The earliest response to this demand, in this section of the state,.was the exploration and sale of the territory of the town of Litchfield. This territory was included in the "Western Lands" conveyed by the colony to the towns of Hartford and Windsor in 1686-7, and the sale of it was the ilrst disposal of that territory which the towns had made. In the spring of 1715, a committee of these towns, of whom John Marsh, the ancestor of the Marshes of Litchfield, was one, and the seeming chief, visited the region, "viewed" it, and secured deeds of it from the Indians; their bills for service, against the towns, giving intimation of the primitive wildness of the region, as by the following items from the Hartford records: —...

The sale of the territory of Litchfleld by the towns of Hartford and Windsor, roused the colony to assert its claim to the Western Lands, and in 1719 at the May session, the legislature enacted: —

"That the whole of said tract of Land shall lie for the further dispose of this assembly, and all surveyors and persons appointed to lay out lands, are hereby forbidden to bound or lay out any of said land without the special order of this assembly."

Nevertheless, Hartford and Windsor went on disposing of the land, and a fierce controversy arose between the colony on the one side, and these two towns and the settlers in the Western Lands to whom they had sold tracts, on the other, which was settled as records show, by compromise, in 1726, the colony taking one, the western half, and the two towns the other, the eastern half; Litchfield, as already disposed of, being left out of the division.

This long controversy had thoroughly advertised the unsettled lands,

1738; Cornwall at Fairfield, in February of the same year; Kent at Windham, in March;

...young men "went west to grow up with the country;" and all north and east of Kent was alive, as was itself, with the interest of.new settlement.

all at once," to use a familiar phrase, the country sprang into life at the period of the settlement of Kent: Nortnbury church, organized 1740; Westbury, 1740; Bethlehem, 1740; Washington, 1742; Kent, 174i; Goshen, 1740; Cornwall, 1741; Canaan, 1741; Torrington, 1741; Harwinton, 1737; New Hartford, 1738. So that Kent was by no means born alone. Its settlement was but one manifestation of a movement that pervaded the colony, the first great set of Connecticut's westward tide; the tide that, with its successive flowings, has peopled the continent with its best inhabitants and noblest life.

While the new life of Kent society was crystalizing into form, the same process of the beginnings of religious and civil organization was going on in the communities around it. As the primeval forest still covered this parish, unbroken save by the settler's clearings, so over Litchfield county the primitive wilderness stretched unbroken, save where here and there the centres were being established of the several towns. It is the period from which the life of Litehfield county takes its date.

Westbury, now Watertown, was constituted an ecclesiastical society in 1738, the same year as Kent.

In Bethlehem, the first settlers are petitioning the General Assembly to be constituted a distinct society, which petition was granted at the October session, 1739, and the church was organized the following spring, March 27, 1740.

In Washington, too, the first settlement is under way, the pioneer settler, Joseph Hurlburt, locating there in 1736, and the community petitioning in 1741, to be organized into an ecclesiastical society, which was done by the General Assembly at the October session of that year, the society being named "Judea," likely from the hill country of Palestine, which of old bore that name. Immediately on the organization of the society, the building of the meeting-house was proceeded with, the inhabitants stating, in a petition to the General Assembly in May 1742,that they had "Unanymously and Lovingly Agreed upon a place for to set a Meeting House; ' the only instance of the kind in the early history of the county. The house was built during the same year; the cnurch being organized Sept. 1st., 1742; Rev. Reuben Judd, the first pastor being ordained the same day; the ceremonies taking place in a grove—the other society in the town, that of New Preston, was organized October, 1752.

Into the "Wilderness" the first invasion was the settlement of Litchfield, and this introduces us to one of the most curious and interesting chapters of Connecticut history, as well as to a matter which early engaged the attention of Northbury (PLYMOUTH - WAS INCORPORATED FROM WATERTOWN); it being the subject of a controversy which the new society waged with the mother town, from the time of its organization as a society until after it became a town itself—the famous affair of the"Western Lands." In the records of Waterbury, 1741, there is the following entry with reference to the matter: —

"There having been considerable discourse about the money for which the western lands were sold and granted for the use of the school, and not agreeing in what method it should be disposed of, (the town) did by vote agree that they would refer it to some indifferent gentlemen, to be decided by them where the said money shall be disposed, whether it belongs to the first parish (of Waterbury) or should be divided among the several parishes (including Westbury and Northbury)."

What were these "western lands?" The original title to the territory of New England was the grant, in 1620, by James I. to the Plymouth Company, of England of

"All that part of America lying and being in breadth from the fortieth degree of north latitude, from the equinoctial line, to the forty-eighth degree of said northerly latitude inclusively, and in length of and with all the breadth aforesaid, throughout the main land from sea to sea."

The old deeds refer frequently to the Fairweather purchase, but as there is no deed on record in Kent of this property a search was made through the old colonial records where it was found that in 1707 there was a large tract of land granted to Hon. Nathaniel Gold, Peter Burr and several others of Fairfleld for a township in what is now the southern portion of Kent and the northern portion of New Milford, and that they in turn sold a part or all of it to Robert Silliman, Richard Hubbell and Benjamin Fairweather, the latter being described as the "cornet of the troop in Fairfleld." The latter's purchase contained some 3,800 acres and was six miles in length from east to west and three hundred rods wide. When the owner died the large tract was divided between his heirs.

1826

About this time there was considerable agitation to have a canal from Stockbridge, Mass., to tide water at Derby. This is the language of the resolution the town meeting passed: "That we claim it is the interest and duty of every individual situated near the proposed route to aid and assist in the completion of this object oy endeavoring to promote and otherwise concert in measures calculated to effect it by lending funds as circumstances may enable and the vastness of the undertaking may require. That no other route to tide water heretofore suggested is by us regarded as equally important or can equally well accommodate this town or that portion of the public subjected to land carriage which lies between the Connecticut and Hudson rivers."

May. 1739, passed a resolution that "the military companies in the towns of Kent, Woodbury, New Milford, Litchfleld, Cornwall, Goshen, Canaan, Norfolk, Salisbury, Sharon, and New Pairfleld shall be one entire regiment to be distinguished by the name of the Thirteenth regiment."

...The War of the Revolution impoverished where it did not devastate. For many years there was practically no money. Mr. Bordwell was from necessity a farmer, and during the long winter a tutor as well; for like most of the ministers of the day, he fitted many a boy for college. The spiritual destitution of the period was even greater than the material. Skepticism and infidelity were rampant, and the church that held its own did well.

no record after 1812 on -- so maybe before 1812 or not members of this church?

EPISCOPAL
The next rector was Samuel Clark, who went to New Milford in 1768. He was a native of West Haven and a graduate of Yale college. Under him the first real attempts at organization were made. They are upon the parish register two very old documents of his day; they are the earliest records the parish now possesses. The first of these papers is dated at New Milford February 7, 1770; it is a receipt to Reuben Swift for his ministerial (church tax) for the year 1769. The second is dated Dec. 2, 1771, and shows that occasional services were being kept. It is a notice of Mr. Clark's intention to preach in Kent the coming Sunday. It was owing to the co-operation of this worthy layman, Reuben Swift, that the church for which Mr. Palmer began to gather subscriptions in 1760, was finally built in 1772 or early in 1773. Mr. Swift lived just to see it finished as he died the same year. This ancient building stood about thirty yards to the south of the present church. It was afterwards converted into a town hall, and still later the frame was used for a barn, now the property of George Hopson.

Mr. Clark remained at his post until 1787 when he migrated to Nova Scotia. The years 1768-87 covered by Mr. Clark's ministry were dark days for the church in America. The nearest bishop was 3,000 miles across the Atlantic. It was not until 1785 that a bishop set foot upon these shores. Besides the want of a bishop there were other hardships to bear. The church was small in numbers; she was hated and despised by the multitude who regarded Episcopacy as hostile to civil as well as religious liberty. When the war really broke out many of the clergy had to fiee, others were persecuted and imprisoned, churches were closed, many of them desecrated and defiled by the mob.

In 1790 Rev. Truman Marsh was stationed at New Milford and remained for nine years, and it is probable he looked after the church in Kent. In February, 1808, the parish was duly organized according to the state laws, the first officers being Lewis St. John, clerk; Reuben Booth, moderator; John Smith, treasurer. In May following Rev. Sturgis Gilbert was offered $6 to preach every third Sunday during the summer. May 4, 1809, a meeting was called to see whether the society would adopt the constitution of the church in America as set forth by general convention. From 1808 to 1816 yearly meetings were held on the great plain of Kent as it was then called. In the latter year the old church was renovated. In September Mr. Gilbert was released from his contract. The records are broken from here until 1819, when in April of that year at the annual meeting the committee of the church were authorized to lay out the present subscriptions lately obtained in hiring, as it was said, Rev. George B. Andrews to officiate as clergyman. Under him the old church which had been built nearly fifty- two years in 1820 was consecrated. Mr. Andrews immediately afterward set to work to build the present edifice. On September 30, 1822, a meeting was called to adopt plans for building. Jeremiah Fuller, John H. Swift, Garrett Winegar, Alpheus Fuller, and John Hurd, were chosen as a building committee. The original papers, contracts, etc., are still preserved. Various subscription papers tell of the struggles of the faithful few to get the church built. Those who had no money to give gave of their goods, timber, stone, brick, or lime, anything in short, that would prove available as building,

M. E. CHURCH AT GAYLORDSV1LLE.

Many of the people in the southern part of the town are connected with the Methodist Episcopal church in Gaylordsville, and that church must not be overlooked in enumerating the religious forces of the town. For many years it has maintained regular preaching services at Ore Hill and Bulls Bridge. Situated at the Center, as the churches are, there are many who find it difficult to reach them, and the neighborhood Sunday schools at South Kent, Bulls Bridge, Macedonia, and North Keat have been, and are, of inestimable value.

Mention should here be made of Rev. Wm. H. Kirk, a consecrated Reformed Methodist minister, who was for fifty-one years a resident of tho town of Kent. He was born of Scottish parentage in Springfield, Vermont, March 24, 1824. His mother was a lineal descendant of Robert Bruce, the eminent Scottish chief, and a daughter of Rev. Rufus Bruce of Chester, Vermont. Mr. Kirk was converted to Christ at the age of ten years, and for sixty-one years was a devout Christian. He edited for several years the denominational paper of his church, which was published under the name of "The Banner and Banquet." His church granted him license as an exhorter at the age of seventeen years and in 1844, at a sitting of the Vermont annual conference of the Reformed Methodist church he was ordained an elder in said church, which office he held until his death on February 19, 1896, at Kent. He was always under appointment by his conference as pastor, visiting elder or evangelist, in which capacity he labored faithfully and successfully in different states in the Union. Mr. Kirk was an anti-slavery man during the days of slavery, and was one of the only three men in the town of Kent to vote the anti-slavery ticket when that ticket was first presented to the people, the other two being the late Rev. Jeremiah Fry and the late Deacon Lewis Spooner. He thereafter voted with the Republican party until the excitement of war times began to subside when it was discovered that the greatest foe to our race was the liquor traffic. Accordingly, he identified himself with the Prohibition party. Possessing great strength of character and independence of thought, he was never misunderstood as to his sentiments. He was the champion of every cause and measure that tended to suppress vice and exalt virtue. Sympathetic and kind towards the suffering and distressed, he was often called to comfort bereaved ones in officiating at funerals until he had attended one thousand during his ministry He took a Christian interest In the welfare of the Scatacook Indians and many of them, under his influence became Christians. The oldest remaining members of the tribe declare him to have been the first person to visit their reservation and tell them they "had souls and might have a Saviour." January 12, 1845, he was married to Miss Maria Houghton of Pownall. Vermont. Their three children were: Sarah A., wife of Edward Eaton, of Warren; Laura J., wife of Edward Thorpe, and a resident of Danvers, Mass., and Charles F., who married Miss Lillian Newton, and resides in Kent.

While of a social nature, of Mr. Kirk it could be truly said he feared God, and feared nothing else but sin. Eminently successful as a revivalist, many of the members of different churches in and around Kent were converted under his labors and teaching. For a period of more than three years previous to his death he was an invalid, suffering from a partial paralysis and other diseases.

In 1757, Jabez Smith was chosen overseer of the tribe; being the first officer of the kind appointed for the Scatacooks.

Medina in 184.6.—Medina, the county-seat, is on the stage road from Cleveland to Columbus, twenty-eight miles from the first and one hundred and seventeen from the latter. It was originally called Mecca—and is so marked on the early maps of Ohio—from the Arabian city famous as the birth-place of Mahomet. It was afterwards changed to its present name, being the seventh place on the globe of that name. The others are, Medina, a town of Arabia Deserta, celebrated as the burial-place of Mahomet; Medina, the capital of the kingdom of Woolly, West Africa ; Medina, a town and fort on the island of Bahrein, near the Arabian shore of the Persian gulf; Medina, a town in Estremadura, Spain; Medina, Orleans county, Js. Y., and Medina, Lenawee county, Michigan.

On the organization of the county in 1818, the first court was held in a barn, now standing half a mile north of the court-house. The village was laid out that year, and the next season a few settlers moved in. The township had been previously partially settled. In 1813 Zenas Hamilton moved into the central part with his family, from Danbury, Conn. His nearest neighbor was some eight or ten miles distant. Shortly after came the families of Rufus Ferris, Timothy Doane, Lathrop Seymour, James Moore, Isaac Barnes, Joseph Northrop, Friend Ives, Abijah Mann, James Palmer, William Painter, Frederick Apple- ton, etc., etc.

Rev. Roger Searle, an Episcopalian, was the first clergyman, and the first church was in the eastern part of the township where was then the most population. It was a log structure, erected in 1817. One morning all the materials were standing, forming a part of the forest, and in the afternoon Rev. Mr. Searle preached a sermon in the finished ehnrch.*

One of the earliest grist mills in New Haven County was located at Sperry's Falls, a reminder of which exists today in a huge broken mill-stone lying near the ancient foundations. Below Lake Dawson,Elioenai Clark made coffins and cabinet work. There were saw and gristmills in various parts of the town.. Woodbridge There was once a clock factory operated by John Northrop, west of the Church, near the home of Henry C. Baldwin.
The most important manufacturing industry connected with -Woodbridge,was the match business. This townWoodbridge is really the birthplace of the friction match. The inventor was Thomas Sanford, whose title to the distinction is permanently secured by a decision ofthe U. S. Court. Mr. Sanford made the invention while living in the neighboring town of Oxford. But his first shop was in Woodbridge, in a part of the house now occupied by Robert Payne as a residence. "Next he moved his business to a larger shop, west of and at the foot of Round Hill. The ruins of this building, which has just fallen in, may be seen near the so-called MRS. MORRIS F. TYLER. Sanford Place. Still later, Mr. Sanford built another shop further down Bladen's Brook.

"You do swear by the ever-living God that you will truly and faithfully adhere to and maintain the government established in this state under the authority of the people, agreeable to the laws in force within the same, and that you believe in your conscience that the King of Great Britain hath not, nor of right ought to have any authority or dominion in or over this state, and that you do not hold yourself bound to yield any allegiance or obedience to him within the same, and that you will, to the unmost of your power, maintain and defend the freedom, independance and privileges of this state against all open enemies or traitorous conspiracies whatsoever, so help you God. And no person shall have authority to execute any of the offices aforesaid after the first day of January next, until he hath taken said oath, and all persons who hereafter shall be appointed to any of said offices shall take said oath before they enter upon the execution of their offices. And no freemen within this state shall be allowed to vote in the election of any of the officers of government until he hath taken the aforesaid oath in the open freemans' meeting in the town where he dwells."

"Names of those persons that have appeared to take the oath of fidelity prescribed by the General Assembly of this state at a General Assembly of the State of Connecticut holden at Hartford in said state on the second Thursday of May, A. D.( 1777."

    In 1746, William Cogswell's father, Edward, secured the right to mine iron ore in the New Milford North Purchase.

    The Iron Works was established along the Aspetuck River, near the foot of the road leading to New Preston hill. The Iron Works was the first industry in the North Purchase.

    During the first half of the 19th century, a variety of new industries began to spring up and flourish in the town of Washington. A coopers' shop prospered in Marbledale, while grist, cider, flax and saw mills churned.

    Factories producing everything from twine, hats and cheese boxes to ax handles, shoes and harnesses were able to thrive in the growing community.

    Turnpikes were built to connect Washington to neighboring communities, and by 1872 the area's first railroad -- The Shepaug Railroad -- was expanding the small town's reach. (The Shepaug Railroad ran a freight line until 1948.)

    The town of Southbury was one of several towns formed out of a parcel of land purchased from the Paugussett Indians in 1659. It was originally part of Woodbury, which was settled in 1673. A new meetinghouse for the Southbury Ecclesiastical Society was built in 1733, and in 1787 the town of Southbury was incorporated.[1] Although incorporated as part of Litchfield County, Southbury has been in New Haven county for most of its existence.[2]

    In the 1800s, water power became essential to the growth of Southbury's industries, which included mills, tanneries, and distilleries.[3] The water power came primarily from the Pomperaug[4] and Housatonic rivers. As the industrial revolution progressed, many of these businesses left for Waterbury.

      Sources:
      1. Text: The evidence that Asahel Dutton and Sarah Frisbie were the parents of Asahel E. Dutton is circumstantial, but highly pursuasive:
        1.Asahel and Sarah's birth dates and marriage date are appropriate for them being the parents of the younger Asahel.
        2. The fact that both men had the same name is an obvious clue.
        3. The younger Asahel named one of his sons James Frisbie Dutton. James Frisbie was the name of one of Sarah's brothers.
        4. James Frisbie shared a claim to land in Bradford county, Pennsylvania with Solomon Moss, who was the father-in-law of the younger Asahel Dutton.
        5. The families of both the suspected parents and Asahel E. Dutton all moved to Poultney, VT. Sarah Frisbie and 4 of her brothers moved to the Poultney area when the younger Asahel was a young child. Further, the sister of the elder Asahel, Lois Dutton, moved to Poultney. The first docuement event involving the younger Asahel was his moving from Poultney in 1800.

    Perhaps something more than Ethan Allen’s personal charism made the Brownsons especially responsive to his influence. Allen had joined the Brownson family back in Connecticut; he had married Mary, the daughter of Cornelius Brownson, on June 23, 1762, in Judea parish, Woodbury. The wedding ceremony cost him four shillings. (9)

    Between the years 1806 and 18 16 several boys had drifted away from the Sandwich Islands as seamen and became tempo- rarily residents of New England ; some of them had begun to ac- quire an education by private assistance and a few, in 18 16, were gathered into a flourishing school at Morris, Conn. Henry Obookiah, one of the most influential, had joined the church in Torringford the previous 3'ear, and was preparing to be a mission ary to his native land under the direction of the Litchfield North Consociation.

    Life and letters of Horace Bushnell"

    Tracing the family lineage of the Bushnells, we find them among the first settlers of Guilford and later of Saybrook,. Conn. We learn of no titled or distinguished persons among them. Whether Francis Bushnell, " ye elder," signer of the covenant for the settlement of Guilford, made on ship-board
    by the colonists in June, 1639, was or was not the father of the three original Saybrook Bushnells remains a moot point among genealogists, but there was undoubtedly a relationship between them. Deacon Francis Bushnell, Lieutenant Will iam Bushnell and Kichard Bushnell, all of Saybrook, were brothers, and from them the Connecticut Bushnells are de scended. Fifth in the line of descent from Lieutenant Will iam was Abraham Bushnell, \vho married Molly Ensign of West Hartford and Salisbury, lived many years at Canaan Falls, Conn., and finally removed to Starksboro, Vermont. They had thirteen children, the second of whom was Ensign, the father of Horace Bushnell.^

    EARLY LIFE AT HOME.

    In 1805, Eiisign Buslmell removed his family to New Preston, a village about fifteen miles distant from Litchfield, and in the most picturesque part of the same county. There is reason to think that the inducement to this removal lay in the superior water-power of New Preston, and that an interest in carding wool and dressing cloth by machinery had come to Ensign Bushnell from his father at Canaan Falls, where was erected in 1802 the first carding machine ever built in the State. At all events this, in addition to farming, soon became his business.

    The scenery of New Preston abounds in lovely pictures of which Lake Wararnaug is the centre. Its outline is irregular, the shores hilly and on the east even mountainous and densely wooded. From the base of a mountain on the eastern side, known as the Pinnacle, the lake turns westward with a wider sweep, its banks indented with little coves and crowned with
    green farms, which are freshened here and there by sparkling brooks. Boiling hills fill the western distance. The scene is one of purely New England character, full of fresh suggestion and rural charm untamed by culture. The outlet is from
    the southern end, and pours its foaming stream through a narrow valley, from which the hills on either side rise steep ly. The little mills and shops which line this stream and use its water-power, and the rugged farms that climb these hill sides, compose the village of New Preston, which still, nes tled in the safe seclusion of woods and mountains, keeps much of its old character of remoteness from the world.

    The Bushnells chose their farm and fixed their home upon the southeastern slope of " a broad-backed hill, which stretches a mile upward and westward to a rounded summit, where stands the church." As this hill turns its back upon the lake, the view does not include the water, but is a wide outlook down the winding valley and across the rolling summits of the hills which, for ten miles, part it from that of the Housatonic. The farm lying on this sunny slope is a rough and rocky one one to tax the strength and patient skill of him who tilled it. " No ornamental rock-work is needed to set off the landscape. Nature s rock-work will stand, and the toil that is necessary to clear the soil is just what is requisite to sharpen the vigor of our people. The necessities of a rough country and an intractable soil are good necessities."
    This was the lesson of early experience as recalled by Horace Bushnell in manhood. the New Preston Academy was opened, in 1818

    Litciifield, the shire town of the county, is 58 miles from Hartford, by rail, and has a population of about 3,000. The township is on high land, with strong soil. Bantam Lake, tire largest body of water in the county, is situated partly in this town. The village commands a beautiful and extensive prospect, and has a fine park in the centre, in which stands a monument to commemorate the lives of those who fell in the late war. The prominent buildings are the old court-house, with its turret and bell; the jail, and a new Congregational church edifice costing about $30,000. With its beautiful shade-trees, the village, at present, is a most delightful resort for those in quest of pleasure and recreation. The Lake-view House, capable of accommodating several hundred people, is a sightly place, and a favorite resort for metropolitan guests during the heated term. The city of New York, distant about 115 miles by rail, is reached by the Norwalk, Ilousatonic, Shepaug and Naugatuck railroads. The churches in the town are six

    in number; and there are two banks, one newspaper, and 20 public schools. Manufacturing is carried on to a greater or less extent at East Litchfield, Bantam Falls, Milton and Northfield.

    Among the eminent men of Litchfield have been Oliver Woleott (172C-97), the commander of a company in the French war, first sheriff of the county, delegate to Congress in 1775, and signer of the Declaration of Independence, and governor of the State at the time of his death; Benjamin Tallmadge (1754—1835), a colonel in the Revolutionary war, serving with distinction in many battles, several times a representative in Congress, and instrumental in causing the capture of Maj. Andre; Gen. Uriah Tracy (1755-1807), congressman and U. S. senator; Hon. O. S. Seymour, LL. D., former member of Congress and chief justice of the State; George C.

    Stephen Northrup was born in Salisbury, Connecticut, in 1780, and died in Fulton Settlement in 1872. At the time of his decease, he was the last of the pioneers of his locality. He came to Bethel (prob NY)in May, 1807, and after viewing the country, concluded to go back to his birthplace. When he reached the Neversink, he met /Minimi Hawley, one of his old neighbors, who was. moving to Bethel with his family. Hawley was very glad to meet him; but sorry to learn that he was returning. After a conversation concerning their affairs, Northrup was led to alter his purpose once more, and again return to Fulton Settlement.

    This meeting took place on the east side of the Neversink. The river was very much swollen by the spring rains. There was no bridge, and the ford was impassable: at least Hawley did not dare to put his oxen, cart, wife and children in peril by attempting to cross in the usual manner. So he took the yoke from the necks of his cattle, and compelled them to swim over a short distance from the ford, where the water was smooth and deep. Then he unloaded his cart, took off its wheels and box, and conveyed or towed every thing to the opposite shore in or behind a log canoe! The task was difficult and dangerous: but was safely performed, and the adventurers proceeded on their way.
    * Adam, a ion of John Pintler, wag born May 2, 1805. and Eve Flutter was born October 7,1808. Both of these births preceded that of Catharine Fulton.

    They spent two days in traveling from the Neversink to the west-branch of the Mongaup. When they passed the latter, a heavy rain set in. Night was approaching, and they were in an almost trackless forest, far from human nabitation. The discomforts of the day were bad enough; but they were far exceeded by the prospective miseries of the night. The first care of the men was for the young mother and her two little children. With an axe they made the frame of a diminutive tent, which they covered with blankets. In this, Mrs. Hawley and the little ones passed the dismal night, while the men fared as well as they could under the dripping trees.

    On the third day they reached a clearing made by one of the Fultons, where they found a deserted cabin. Into this Hawley moved. Having thus piloted his friends to their new home, Xorthrup returned to Connecticut, and three weeks later came back with, his family. After occupying a temporary shelter for a few months, he moved to the place where he spent the remainder of his days. During the last fifty-six years of his life, his daily walk and conversation were in accord with the strict rules of the Presbyterian faith. He never sought to occupy a conspicuous position in this life; but was content with what was far better: the discharge, honestly and earnestly, of those duties which give life and beauty to Christian society.

    Joseph K. Northrup, a son of Stephen, was the first male child born hi Fulton Settlement.

    St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Bridgewater.

      The record of the organization of St. Mark's Episcopal Society begins with a meeting held at the dwelling house of Jonas Sanford, on Easter Monday, April 23, 1810, at which William Gillett and Julius Camp were chosen wardens, Daniel
    Booth, Jeremiah Platt, and James Jessup, vestrymen, William Gillett, reading clerk, Samuel Lockwood, treasurer; also David Merwin, Joseph Wheeler, Blackman Jessup, Jeremiah Canfield, Treat Canfield, Jehiel Summers, and John Treat were chosen choristers, and Joel Sanford was elected to attend the State Convention within the year.

      The service was held at the dwellings of the several members, but more frequently at the house of Jonas Sanford, by lay-readers and neighboring ministers, for nearly twenty years, when an effort was made to build a house of worship. The site was located near the old burying-place west of where they finally built their first house, and the timber for the frame was collected at that place, but the question of the location or something of the kind caused the work to cease, and the matter was delayed some time. In 1835, the first house was erected about half a mile south of the present village, in the field, and afterwards a highway was made past it for the accommodation of the people. This building is still standing, is two stories high, and in a beautiful location. Soon after this the village began to increase in dwellings and population, and to become a center of trade, in consequence of the increase of the business of manufacturing hats, particularly by Glover Sanford, and this house of worship was found to be inconveniently located. Hence, in 1859 anew edifice was erected in the village where it now stands, which was consecrated March 14, 1860, by the Rt. Rev. John Williams.

      Among those ministers who officiated here before a house of worship was erected, are the names of Rev. B. Northrop, the Rev. Benjamin Benham of New Milford, and the Rev. Joseph S. Covel. Since 1835 the church has been under the pastoral charge of the following clergymen: Revs. Joseph S. Covel, Abel Nichols, George H. Nichols, William Atwell, Abel Ogden, William O. Jarvis, H. F. M. Whitesides, Abel Nichols, Merritt H. Wellman, William H. Cook, James Morton, H. D. Noble, X. Alanson Welton, W. B. Colburn, D.D., and G. V. C. Eastman, D.D., who resigned and removed to the West in 1882.

      The officers of the parish at the present time are: Jeremiah G. Randall, Eli Sturdevant, Wardens; Arza C. Morris, Albert B. Mallett, and Amos Northrop, Vestrymen (in 1882); Arza C. Morris, Treasurer; Jeremiah G. Randall, Delegate to Convention; and Eli Sturdevant, Clerk.

    In the year 1779, the township of Washington was formed in the County of Litchfield, and within its limits were included the lands owned by the Davies family, and it is recorded that on the 12th day of April, 1779, a number of the inhabitants took the oath of allegiance to the States, in open Freemen's Meeting.

    Among the names of those who, by the list given in the record, pledged themselves to the cause of the Revolution, we look in vain to find a single Davies, a fact which shows the steadfastness with which the whole family clung to their traditions of loyalty, although, possibly, it may not commend them to the patriotic feelings of their descendants.

    It had been the custom of Mr. John Davies to present annually to the Rev. Mr. Marshall, of Woodbury, a fat cow, and this he continued with great difficulty to do during the whole period of the war, although to accomplish this purpose in those times, it was necessary, as he has told, to take the animal by night, and by a long and circuitous route, to avoid being intercepted and robbed by those of the opposite political faith, in whose judgment a gift to an Episcopal clergyman was a treasonable offense. An instance of his generosity and kindness, which never failed even in those trying times, appears from an anecdote that is told in the biography of his youngest son, the Rev. Thomas Davies. After the close of the war a man who had taken an active part in driving off a number of cattle from his farm, and had committed other acts of plunder, having become destitute, applied for relief in his extremity to Mr. Davies, who not only pardoned him for the wrongs he had done, but liberally relieved his wants.

    After the close of the war, Mr. Davies' life was passed quietly and peacefully at his home, surrounded by his family, the greater part of whom depended upon him for support, and lived at or near the family homestead. His sons, John and William, had been ruined by the confiscation of their property during the war, and the latter had taken refuge in Canada.

    He still had in mind his father's wish that an Episcopal Church should be built at Birch Plains, upon the lands of the Davies family, and late in life he succeeded in accomplishing this object, as is told in Cothren's " History of Ancient Woodbury."

    After the separation of what was called Birch Plains or Davies Hollow from the township, the Davies family, one of considerable note and zealously attached to the Church, withdrew from the Litchfield Parish, and built a church edifice of their own in Davies Hollow, where, with assistance from some few families, who resided near, they sustained religious services according to the Liturgy of the Church of England, and kept up a distinct parochial organization, for a considerable period. The following is a copy of the Deed given by John Davies, father of Rev. Thomas Davies, to the Churchmen in Washington, making to them a conveyance of the lands upon which the house of worship was erected :

    " Know ye that I, John Davies, of that part of Washington formerly belonging to Litchfield, and known and called by the name of Birch Plains, in the County of Litchfield, for the consideration of an agreement or promise, made with and to my honored father, John Davies, late of Birch Plains, in said Litchfield, deceased, and for the love and affection I have and bear toward the people of the Church of England now in said town of Washington, and for securing and settling the service and worship of God among us, according to the usage of our most excellent Episcopal Church, whenever there shall be one legally organized in said Washington, and at all times forever hereafter, do therefore demise," etc., etaThe measurement of the land as described in the deed must have been equal to ninety-six square poles, and it was restricted to use as a public burying- ground, and for the purpose of having a suitable place of worship erected upon it The same condition was annexed to it as that which was expressed in the deed given by his father to the church in Litchfield, viz.: the requirement of one peppercorn to be paid annually on the feast of St Michael the Archangel, if demanded. The above deed was given on the 2id of January, 1794. Upon this ground, principally at his own expense, an Episcopal Church subsequently was erected. Aged and infirm, and seated in an arm-chair at the door of his boose, he witnessed the raising of the edifice, with a feeling similar to that of the pious Simeon when he said, "Lord, now lettest thon thy servant depart in peace." He survived about three years, and at the age of eighty-six years he died on the 19th day of May, 1797, and was buried in the family burial-ground in Davies Hollow.

    The slave trade in Connecticut was prohibited in 1788. However, it remained legal to hold slaves until as late as 1848. The state had passed an act of Gradual Emancipation--children born to enslaved parents after March 1, 1784, would be freed at the age of 25 (later dropped to age 21). As a result slavery was slowly phased out. Meanwhile, African Americans and their allies organized to build schools and churches, and petitioned the General Assembly and local governments demanding the right to vote.

    ...
    The Connecticut Anti-Slavery Society was founded in 1838. By 1839, Connecticut abolitionism found itself at a crossroads. After several disheartening legal defeats like the Crandall case, Connecticut abolitionists were in search of a new cause to bring slavery to the public's eye. Abolitionists embraced the publicity given to the Amistad captives' plight as a means to publicize and reinvigorate their cause.
    Jocelyn was supported by New Haven attorney Roger Sherman Baldwin. Baldwin, a member of North Church, offered his legal services to the Amistad captives. For two years, Baldwin successfully defended the Africans' right to freedom (first assisted by some fellow Yale graduates, later by former President John Quincy Adams). As abolitionists, Baldwin and Adams seized the opportunity to refocus the case on human rights and to challenge the institution of slavery on moral and constitutional grounds. Baldwin and Jocelyn were also instrumental in securing first local, then national support for the captives.

    "

    In opposition to the southern demand that all discussion should cease, and acquiescence to their wishes be granted, the anti-slavery societies began to multiply and send forth their publications.

    Such is the simplest outline of historical facts to the time when Torrington began to take part in the subject of anti-slavery. Litchfield county, at the time, was a ruling county in the state, in several respects, and as anti-slavery principles took deepest root in the strongest minds as well as to find a lodgment in the lesser, a number of persons in the county were invited to meet in Wolcottville in January, 1837, for the purpose of organizing a county society.

    Torrington, CT"

    When the friends of the cause began to look around for a place for the meeting of the convention, they found every church, public and private hall, closed against them, and heard whisperings of threatnings against any who might have the noble daring to encounter the pro-slavery element of the village and of the town. At this juncture a barn was offered for the use of the convention, and it was promptly accepted, and fitted for the occasion.1 It was not the first time that strangers found the shelter in a barn, " because there was no room in the inn." In that barn the friends of impartial liberty and justice, gathered in goodly numbers ; some of them the most reliable and respectable citizens of Litchfield county. The barn was filled ; the floor, scaffolds, hay-mow and stables. It was an intense cold day in January, and there was much suffering from the severity of the weather. The convention was called to order, and Roger S. Mills of New Hartford, appointed chairman. The Rev. Daniel Coe of Winsted, offered prayer. After appointing a committee to nominate permanent officers, the convention was addressed by the Rev. Nathaniel Colver, agent of the American society, and others. The county society was then organized and the following officers appointed : president, Roger S. Mills: vice presidents, Erastus Lyman of Goshen, Gen. Daniel 13. Brinsmade of Washington, Gen. Uriel Tuttle of Torringford, and Jonathan Coe of Winsted ; secretary, Rev. R. M. Chipman of Harwinton ; treasurer, Dr. E. D. Hudson of Torringford. While thus peacefully engaged, though suffering with the cold, and counseling together for the relief of the oppressed and the elevation of humanity, a furious mob was collecting in the village, and elevating their courage for their deeds of violence by the intoxicating cup. A class of men from the adjoining town, as well as from Torrington, had gathered for the very purpose of disturbing this meeting if it should attempt to exercise the liberties of religious and civil citizens. This mob, after parading the streets, making hideous and threatening noises, gathered around the barn, and by their deafening shouts, the blowing of horns and the ringing the alarm of fire by the bell of the Congregational church, and the display of brute force, broke up the meeting, which hastily took an adjournment. Then the old puritan spirit was manifested by the Torringford people, who offered the use of their meetinghouse to the convention, and it repaired to that place, and continued the session two days. The opposition in Torringford though violent was undemonstrative for lack of the mob element and rum ; and partially from the fact that the fury of the mob had run its race in Wolcottville. When the convention left the barn, the shouts, thumping of pans and kettles, and the furious ringing of the church bell, characterized pandemonium broken loose. When the people were leaving Wolcottville in their sleighs, the entire village seemed to be a bedlam. That good man, Dea. Ebenezer Rood, was set upon in his sleigh, to over turn him and frighten his horses. This excited his righteous indignation, and in a voice of defiance he shouted to them : " Rattle your pans, hoot and toot, ring your bells, you pesky fools, if it does you any good," then put his horses on a run and cleared himself from the gang.

    That barn has since been removed, refitted, and is now owned by Dr. Wood.

    When the meeting assembled in Torringford it was inspired with new life, energy and courage. The beacon fires of liberty and freedom blazed much higher than they would but for the violence manifested in the village. Deacon Rood's spirit of defiance to the mob, took possession of the whole company, and every man and woman, enlisted in the cause, gloried in the name of abolitionist, and felt annointed for the work of preaching " deliverance to the captives in chains." Such was the beginning of anti-slavery agitation, and times, in the town where John Brown, " Ossawattomie Brown," was born.

    This society, moved now, as well by the sense that despotism had come to their own doors, and threatened the very sacredness of church and homes, as by the thought of freedom for the slave, proceeded to hold monthly meetings throughout the county. These meetings were held in barns and sheds, in groves and houses, and any where that the people would assemble for such a purpose. It raised funds by systematic method ; distributed tracts, books, and papers. The state Charter Oak Society was organized in 1838, and employed lecturing agents, who besides lecturing, solicited subscribers to the anti-slavery papers, and scattered anti-slavery literature.

    They were opposed everywhere, and yet moved on in their work as though every body knew they were right. They were called all sorts of opprobrious names ; were proscribed and derided, as " nigger friends," "disturbers of Israel." Some were unceremoniously excommunicated from the churches, for no crime but speaking against slavery ; the very thing that many of the fathers had done for a hundred years without objection having been made. All argument with anti-slavery men started with the Bible, where the Quakers started nearly one hundred years before, and this brought the question into all the churches as well as committees. Some withdrew from the churches because they deemed it sinful to hold fellowship with those who voted to uphold a system, acknowledged to be guilty of more crime than any other system in the land.

    The opposition had but one argument ; namely, it offended the South; slavery was for their interest. This argument had been gradually obtaining adherents, from the time the Constitution of the United States was adopted. Before that some of the southern states was as much anti-slavery as any in the North. When the South changed, the spirit of proscription began to rise in the North. Hence in the first meeting house in Torrington, there was no slave pew, nor nigger pew, but in the second one there were two. These pews were located in the gallerv over the stairs, boarded up so high, that when the colored people sat in them, they could see no part of the congregation, and could be seen by no one in the assembly. Jacob Prince, after being made a freeman by his master, Abijah Holbrook, joined the church in Goshen, and then being placed in such a seat, and treated in other ways by the same spirit, refused to go to church, because, as he said, he was not treated as a brother and thereafter held prayer meetings in his own house on the Sabbath. Whereupon the Goshen church proceeded to, and did excommunicate him for neglect of duty. This same Jacob is said to have been as fine a looking man, head and features, as nearly any one in the town, except the color of his skin.

    Two such pews were in the old church in Torringford, but the Rev. Samuel J. Mills (whether as a rebuke to the spirit of cast or not is not known) always seated Henry Obookiah, Thomas Hooppo, and other tawny brethren of the Sandwich Islands, when they visited him from the Cornwall Mission school, in his own pew, in the front of the congregation, quite to the dissatisfaction of some even of that congregation.

    A Remarkable Occurrence. In the early stages of the anti-slavery struggle, Miss Abbey Kelley, a young and educated Quakeress of superior talent, and most estimable character, " felt the spirit moving her " to take part in the public discussion of the subject, and came into Connecticut. Dr. Hudson was then the general agent for the Connecticut Anti-Slavery Society, and she called on him and made known her purpose to speak whenever opportunity offered. Dr. Hudson kindly extended to her the hand of fellowship in the good cause, and welcomed her to the thorny field, and to the home of his wife Martha Turner Hudson, to whose companionship he committed her, and secured respectable audiences for her at Torringford and other places in adjacent towns. This movement was very disturbing to pro-slavery and conservative orthodoxy. It occurred after Father Mills's death and after Rev. Mr. Goodman was dismissed. From many pulpits in Litchfield county she was proclaimed as " that woman Jezebel who calleth herself a prophetess to teach and seduce my servants." The watchman of Torringford uttered a cry of distress and requested the women and their lords to meet him at the Academy, to receive his testimony and instructions concerning the sphere of woman. (" Women obey your husbands.") The assemblage was large ; the women filled one side of the room, and the men the other, facing them. The minister presided, and after solemn preliminaries and the reading of St. Paul's epistle, adapted to the occasion, he discoursed vehemently upon the duties of woman, her proper sphere ; and the unwomanly, and unwarrantable work of woman as a public teacher; or to address promiscuous audiences and thus depart from the good old ways of orthodoxy. When he had barely closed his address, as if Providence approved his testimony, the decayed timbers in the deep cellar of the Academy, which sustained the floor, suddenly gave way on the woman's side of the house and the entire floor, and all the women were precipitated into the cellar, in one general mass of tangled confusion, the whole accompanied by screams, groans, and cries; one woman exclaiming, "O Lord forgive us for having attended such a wicked meeting;" a noise almost equal to that of the mob at the anti-slavery meeting at Wolcottville.

    Whether the minister of the occasion concluded that the women then had attained their appropriate sphere, is not related in the narration, but the men, after the dum-astonishment had passed away, hastened from on high to drag out their wives, sisters, daughters and mothers, with bruised limbs, torn garments and dissatisfied countenances ; and hastened to their homes, glad to have escaped without encountering any worse sphere of action, though this was not exactly satisfactory. What precise effect this little episode had on the minister's mind, or whether he became celebrated as defining woman's sphere, or whether he afterwards expanded that lecture into a book, is not revealed in the book of Torringford chronicles.

    Prior to the anti-slavery agitation, the inhabitants of Torrington and of Litchfield county, and the state of Connecticut as well, had suffered a calamitous, moral shock ; a sort of aesthetic, volcanic upheaving, by an affair which occurred at the Foreign Mission school at Cornwall. This school had been established and mainly sustained by Congregational churches, for the purpose of educating the Indians and Sandwich Islanders as missionaries to their own people. Two young ladies of Cornwall, belonging to the most respectable and best educated families, became so perverted in their aesthetic tastes, as to choose and dare to marry two of the tawny brethren, with the idea of becoming missionaries among the native tribes. The effect was

    quite shocking ; almost pestilential. Every class of society was thrown into spiritual convulsions. The mission school was threatened with demolition. Those sons of the forest who had been so wicked as to fascinate the belles of Cornwall and make trophies of them were compelled to depart sans ceremonie. The school was soon after closed or rather driven out of existence, not because it was not doing a good work, but because two of the pupils had married two girls, which girls wanted to marry them.

    These items are but a faint illustration of the excitements, hard feelings, desperate threatenings and silly arguments that were entertained concerning slavery and anti-slavery. No attempt is here made to picture the contest. No human language would be equal to such a task ! If the late war of the rebellion could be fully described, there would be, in that description, some features of the terrible curse set forth somewhat appropriately ; but even then, the half would not be told. Now most people see it, and acknowledge the same. No effort is here made to sum up on this great subject. Only a few items are given as historical facts concerning the efforts on the one side in behalf of slavery, and on the other the spirit and courage of those who believed slavery to be a sin against God and humanity.

    One thing is strange, that after the terrible sufferings, hardships and distresses through which the pilgrim fathers and their early descendants passed, for the one object and end of religious and political freedom, that any body should have supposed that the American people could have been compelled, by any means whatever, to put their necks under the yoke of slavery and submit to its dictates !

    The Underground Railroad in Litchfield County


    -Quotes from "The Underground Railroad in Connecticut" by Horatio T. Strother, 1962.

    -p. 121-122- " As a conductor, Wakeman (of Norwalk), was bold and tireless, taking his "packages of hardware and dry good" to places as distant as Plymouth and Middletown - trips of forty and fifty miles as the crow flies, farther than that by road....

    -p. 122- "The Plymouth operators, to whom Wakeman presumably made his deliveries, included Joel Blakeslee, Ferrand Dunbar, and William Bull. They not only handled passengers from Wilton; they also had to keep watch for unaccompanied fugitives on foot who had lost their way on the western line between New Haven and Farmington. The Plymouth "minute men" had to set these wanderers on the right track, which took them a dozen miles eastward to Farmington."

    -p. 123 -Thus it is known that New Milford was a center of Underground work; but whether fugitives came to this town by traveling northward from the vicinity of Wilton, or eastward via a lateral from the Hudson River line in New York, or both, remains unclear."

    -"There are several stations here, (New Milford), one of which was the house of Charles Sabin. Another was the home of Augustine Thayer. He and "his good wife devoted their lives to the Abolition cause. They helped many poor slaves on their way, rising from their beds in the night to feed and minister to them and secreting them till they could be taken under cover of darkness to Deacon Geradus Roberts' house on Second Hill and from there to Mr. Daniel Platt's house in Washington."

    -p. 123-124 - Frederick W. Gunn of Washington, Connecticut, who founded the private school bearing his name, "The direction or runaways on the road to freedom, however, remained Gunn's private affair.

    -p. 124-"Daniel Platt and his wife....accomodating "many a trembling black refugee" on their farm. ...Their son, Orville,...later recalled that "the slaves stayed, as a rule, but a short time, though some remained several weeks until it was learned through the channels of communication among the Abolitionists that their whereabouts was suspected." They were then forwarded to either of two destinations - to Dr. Vaill on the Wolcottville Road or to Uriel Tuttle in Torrington."

    -p. 124-125 - "Yet, curiously, Uriel Tuttle was the only Underground stationmaster here of whom a record survives.

    -p. 125- "At Winchester, a few miles north of Torrington and close to Winsted, there was a small but active antislavery society. Noble J. Everett was its secretary; Jonathan Coe, a member who lived in nearby Winsted, managed a well-patronized Underground station at his house. Another station many have been the home of Silas H. McAlpine, poet, philanthropist, and abolitionist of Winchester; in the foundation wall of his house was a hidden crypt that was possibly a hiding place for fugitives, but there is no positive evidence that it was so used."

    -p 126 - "Beyond this point, there were stations to the north in Colebrook and to the northwest in Norfolk. Who were the Undergroung agents in Colebrook remains unknown, but there were certainly several of them. One may have been J. H. Rodgers, secretary of the ninety-member antislavery society in 1836.

    -"It is also reported that there was a network of Underground byways in this vicinity and that residents of Norfolk were responsible for paving many of them."

    -p. 126-127- " For the fugitive traveling through northwestern Connecticut, Norfolk was the last stop in the state. From here, he was sent across the Massachusetts border to New Marlboro, thence over to the Housatonic River line through Stockbridge and Pittsfield to Bennington, Vermont."

    -from Appendix 2 - "Underground Railroad Agents in Connecticut" (Probable agents are indicated by *) Litchfield County Blakeslee, Joel - Plymouth Bull, William - Plymouth Coe, Jonathan - Winsted Dunbar, Daniel - Plymouth McAlpine, Silas H. * - Winchester Pettibone, Amos - Norfolk Roberts, Geradus - New Milford Sabin, Charles - New Milford Thayer, Augustine - New Milford Tuttle, Uriel - Torrington


    -Quotes from "Barkhamsted Heritage-Culture and Industry in a Rural Connecticut Town", edited by Richard G. Wheeler and George Hilton, 1975.

    -p. 235 - "Lamont's Christmas Tree Plantation - Located at the site of one of Barkhamsted's earliest houses, which saw use as an inn on the route from the Salisbury iron works toward Granby.....The house, known 50 years ago as the Oscar Tiffany place, was bought in 1952 by Thomas and Marguerite Lamont...Legend has it that the house was also a stop on the Underground Railroad."

    (Kind of tickles me, Cotton Mill in town and they were hiding slaves?)
    -Quotes from "Colebrook Stories", by Alan DeLarm, 1979.

    -"Chamberlain's hotel, The Colebrook River Inn, was at one time used as a station in the underground railroad." -"The Davidson house on the Old Colebrook Road is also said to have been an underground railroad station."


    -Quotes from "Howard Peck's New Milford - Memories of a Connecticut Town", edited by James E. Dibble, 1991.

    -p. 58-60- "Seventy-five years after the Bostwick place was erected it became one of the stations on the Underground Railroad. It is known that there was a hiding place beneath the floor of the attic. This compartment could hold two persons, and as it was near a chimney could provide warmth during the cold winter season. ..."

    -"Another alleged station in this system was a home in the Lanesville section of this town. It is located about four miles south of the village center and has been known as the Wanzer Farm......(they were Quakers)"

    -"Fugitives from slavery in the deep South entered New Milford at several places. Some were directed from New York State, directly west of New Milford. It would seem natural that they might have entered through the Town of Sherman, although little has been written or recorded as to that being the case. However, it has been stated that one known station on the system was in Sherman, a short distance north of the center of town in an old colonial residence lying on the westerly side of the present road leading north from the center toward the New York State line or to Gaylordsville. This station was in the Stuart family. The residence is still standing, a landmark and heritage to be preserved. James Stuart was reportedly the agent. It is alleged that there was a small out-building on the premises just north of his dwelling where the escapees would be housed and it would seem likely that some of them would come over the hills to New Milford."

    -"Again, near the village, was the home of Augustine A. Thayer, known to his cronies as "Baccus."....from a New York newspaper....a reward of five hundred dollars offered for the apprehension of two runaway slaves. It was expressed by one of the men present that it would not surprise him, "if they would be found at that moment at Baccus' home."

    -"Many of the fugitives were aided over the hills to Washington, about five or six miles east of New Milford. One of the most ardent supporters of the movement there was Frederick W. Gunn. ...With Mr. Gunn was Daniel Platt, as devoted an agent on the system as there was anywhere. Mr. Platt and his wife rescued and aided many a poor soul fleeing to Canada."

    -"The route continued from Washington north to Litchfield, then on to Torrington, which was the birthplace of John Brown. It is reported that as early as 1837 there was an organization composed of forty members of an antislavery group in that town. Colebrook and Norfolk were the actual jumping off places in Connecticut. From these towns the fugitives crossed the line into Massachusetts, crossed the Housatonic River to Stockbridge, to Pittsfield, into Vermont, to Bennington, Burlington, Rutland, and on into Canada and freedom."


    Underground Railroad notes from various sources:

    When the first pages of my web site were posted, I received an email from someone (I wish that person, if they ever read this, would get back in contact with me) that mentioned that the Christmas shop in the town of Bethlehem was used to hide runaway slaves. If I remember correctly, I was told it was a printing shop and the slaves would spend the night there before moving on to the next station, most likely in Litchfield.

    I heard from a friend that a home north of the rotary in Goshen was a station in the 1800's. I quote from the Goshen history, 1897, page 363: "The store built and occupied by Wadhams and Thompson, and later by Moses Wadhams, was purchased by A. Miles and Sons, who also had a store at West Goshen. Moses W. Gray entered their employ as clerk, in 1841. At this time, Mr. MIles and one son lived at West Goshen, and another son at the Center, with whom Mr. Gray boarded. At his death, Mr. Gray managed the store for about three years, when he purchased a one-half interest and continued to manage it for several years under the firm name of Miles and Gray. He then purchased the interest of his partner and conducted the business alone, the sign over the door bearing the name of M. W. Gray. In 1857, he sold his stock of goods, and, removing to Chicago, enaged in the wholesale grocery business......" -I have talked to a previous landowner, and he told me there is a room in the basement that is undetectable, unless you know it is there. Convienent having a freight business with a hidden room for that special cargo.

    I also heard that a house in South Kent has "extra rooms" on the fireplace foundation in the basement. I know which house, but nothing more than that.

    Another reference I have, and have no idea where it came from, is Blueberry Hill Farm, between Norfolk and Colebrook, on Rock Hall Road. Supposedly there are false panels behind the fireplace, concealing an entrance to another room.

    Mentioned in a Register Citizen article, (I didn't get the date), the Cook homestead on Charles Street in Torrington was used as a station. Runaways were hidden in a section of a dining room closet.

    Also, a Register Citizen article, dated 12-31-94, by Bryan T. Morytko, mentions the following: Harwinton - Rt. 4, the Chiarmonte and the Hinnan houses, the Hinnan home have a secret place in the attic floor, next to a chimney, large enough for three people. Torrington - Torringford Street (very active antislavery society in this area) - three or four houses on this street, including the Florian home, with a secret basement room Winchester - the Silas H. McAlpine home (already mentioned above)


    These are notes about Underground Railroad sites from visitors to my web site. Some are not exactly in northwestern Connecticut, but close enough.
    (Every little piece of the puzzle helps!)

    From Kevin Purcell, of Fairbanks, Alaska: "I can remember two houses in Northern Westchester that were rumored to be stops on the Underground. One is located on Route 138 east of Goldens Bridge, it is a large colonial just before the Increase Miller Elementary School on the north side of the road. The other is on Route 100 south of Somers, New York. It is a larger stone house that had one of the old stone mile markers out front."


    New quote - added August 29, 1999

    -from "Mysteries and Histories of Goshen", June 21, 1938, by Mrs. Lora Ives. Handwritten manuscript

    -"At my father's place, known as Whist Pond Manor......The Manor house was built in 1772 by Nathaniel Parmelee. It contained a secret chamber by the great stone chimney, to which access was easy from the downstairs closet, under the stairs in the front hall, by moving a board in the ceiling, also by a movable panel in a shallow closet upstairs, and by a loose board in the attic floor. The chimney kept the room warm in winter and it is supposed to have been used to secrete English refugees in Colonial days, also for runaway slaves during and before the Civil War. The place called Bald Ledge where the Sterlings lived for several years at the north end of the street, is said to have a similar room." Click to mail to me.

    Ballston Spa

    Edmund Jennings settled in Ballston in 1775 at the age of 21. He was the son of Zachariah and Sarah Morehouse Jennings from Fairfield, Conn
    Edmund Jennings, unlike some of his neighbors, sided with the rebels during the Revolutionary War. He was a member of the 12th Regiment of the Albany County Militia (Saratoga County was not formed until 1791). In May of 1777, he joined a search party, which was after fifteen tories. Along with Colonel James Gordon, the militilamen chased the lovalists up the Sacandaga River and captured them at Lake Luzern. The captives were taken to the Albany goal, which was already over-crowded with tory prisoners. Edmund Jennings, no doubt, tought at Bemis Heights and witnessed the surrenders of Burgoyne. Captain Edmund Jennings pursued the British and Indians when they raided Ballston in 1780.

    The accumulation of unwelcome tasks meant months of dismal drudgery to Senator Platt. I have to enjoy this place thinking about it when I am far away from it. If there is anything that will bring you health, enjoyment, and happiness it is this Litchfield County life. I am sure that this was the original paradise. Washington, and especially the Judea end of Washington, was right in the centre of the garden.

    But that summer was to be a busy one, with little in it of the peace of Judea. Not only was he burdened with the work of analyzing Cuban finances but he was called upon as usual to bear his part in the Presidential campaign which resulted in the election of McKinley and Roosevelt.

    A BRIEF HISTORY OF WASHINGTON, CONNECTICUT

    The Town of Washington encompasses the following Villages:

    Washington Depot
    Washington (or Washington Green) --  the Old Judea
    New Preston --  located on the Aspetuck River.
    Marbledale (or Marble Dale)

    Gold

    Daniel, Samuel, and Stephen Gold (now written Gould), brothers, members of a Fairfield family that had been prominent in church and state for several generations, were among the early settlers of the town, though none of their descendants are now found among us. Daniel appears first: he married Grace, daughter of Deacon Stephen Burr, and lived where James Lord now lives. His children, as named in the will of Deacon Burr, were: Abigail, who married Richard Nichols. Esther, who married Nathaniel Northrop. Sarah, who married David Turney. Mary, who married Seth Price; and Elizabeth.

    Samuel Gold settled in Lonetown, and built the house now owned by Seth Todd. He was a soldier in the Revolution, and was wounded at the skirmish in Ridgefield. Some of the officers of Putnam's commnd had their quarters at Mr. Gold's during their encampment in Redding. Their children were: Hezekiah, Daniel, Burr, Aaron, Sarah, Polly, and Grace. Stephen Gold settled on the farm later owned by Timothy Platt in Lonetown. He is called captain in the records. He did not long remian a resident of Redding, but returned, it is said to Greenfield.

    la 1707 two persons came into New Milford.

    In 1712 there were here 12 families or between 60 and 70 persons. A census, taken in 1756, reports 1137 in the town ; another taken in 1774, reported 2776, while in 1800, after pans of the town had been ceded to Brookfleld and Washington, the population was 3198. The census of of 1870, gives the population of the present New Milford,
    as 3588, while Bridgev/ater, formerly a part of this town, has 877 inhabitants.

    greens annual register

    Much of this line is pretty well documented. However, Amos has been the brick wall preventing a connection to the earliest Northrop/ups. ,

    In the published Northrup/ Northrop genealogy, neither Amos Northrop/up's nor Rachel Ives' parents are documented. I believe I've tracked down Rachel, but Amos is still a mystery. Regardless of the location or spelling almost all of these Northrops are descended from Joseph Northrup of Milford, CT. Here are a few facts, speculations and clues to help pin them down..What we know about Amos Northrop/Northrup
    Amos was probably born in Eastern New York or the Western half of Connecticut -- an area with many Northrops. He spent a most of his life in Kent and adjoining Warren & Washington, CT. There is no mention of his early life or profession.

    Baldwin, Enos 81 Marriage: Northrup, Elizabeth 81

    bullet   Another name for Enos was Amos.81

    Enos married Elizabeth Northrup, daughter of Phineas Northrup and Elizabeth Brinsmade.81 (Elizabeth Northrup was born on 17 Jan 1732/33 in Milford, New Haven Co, CT 81.)

    The death record of Washington CT has his birth as Kent and occupation Laborer. There is a conflict in his age at death 69 in Washington, but by the time he was buried in Warren Cemetery he was ten years older! age 79.

    Thanks to the Town Clerks office at Washington!

    I was able to confirm Amos Death and burial with the Warren Town Clerk's Office (Thanks for your wonderful assistance!).

    "I found a listing in a notebook refering to a sexton's book that lists his burial on May 18, 1855, age 79.  That is all the information listed in the book." This gives Amos a birthdate of around 1776 !! a new date in all the research.

    The sextons book is by F. B. Taylor, Warren and refers to burials from 1847-1869.  I believe he was the Sexton or Clerk for the Warren Congregational Church.

    'The Church of Christ was established in May 1750 as, "The East Greenwich Society of Kent" by division of "The First Society." Since then the church has been known as "The Congregational Society of Warren", "The First Ecclesiastical Society of Warren", The First Congregational Church of Warren", and in 1941, when the Society and the Church incorporated, it became known as "The Warren Congregational Church, Incorporated." In the National Historic Register, the Church is known as "The Warren Congregational Church." Records include baptism and marriage records.'

    The Washington Town clerk also provided this transcription (made in 1915?) of Northrops in Washington.

    (Rev. Daniel Brinsmade was of Judea Parish, Rev. Hart Talcott ordained 1817 of Warren)

    The Northrop name does not appear in any of the original divisions of Kent.The earliest Northrop I find in Thomas Grant Northrop son of Amos who went to Yale.

    [His brother, 27. Amos, b. Oct. 11, 1772. appears to have life his entire life in New Milford. m. Hannah ELDERKIN. Thomas' uncle, David (22. David, b. July 27, 1746. .) was married to Rachel Grant sister to Anne, wife of Amos Northrop 3d but all children were born in NewMilford.]

    No record of Northrops as members of the church in Kent although several neighbors appear. Atwater History of Kent Perhaps they were associated with another Parish -- especially if they were closer to an adjacent parish or had a family connection to another parish.

    Perhaps the Northrops stayed in the same area from the earliest census. I thought perhaps it was the Woodville section from names on some of the maps (NE of Washington by Mt. Tom), but perhaps they were in the corner where Kent, Warren and Washington meet.

    West of Litchfield. Warren, formerly a part of Kent, was settled about 1737. The parish of East Greenwich was organized in 1750. In 1786, a town was incorporated and named for a Massachusetts man, Gen. Joseph Warren, the Revolutionary hero, who lost his life at Bunker Hill. The town consists of a high plateau, bordered on the south by Lake Waramaug.

    THE tract now comprising the towns of Kent and Warren was sold at auction at the court house in Windham, in March, 1738. The settlernent commenced the same year.The principal settlers were from Colchester, Fairfield and Norwalk The first minister was the Rev. Cyrus Marsh, ordained in May, 1741.

    the Moravian church or mission house was standing 30 or 40 years since, near the house of Mr. Raymond, by the Episcopal church. The Moravians left this place about half a century since. The Scatacook tribe, for whose benefit this mission was established, occupied the interval on the west side of the river for about three miles.

    It may be that this earlier mission set the stage for the Mission School in nearby Cornwall.

    Warren

    The agricultural productions are grass and some grain. Butter and cheese are made, and beef and pork raised by the inhabitants. The town is watered by the Shepaug, a branch of the Housatonic. Raumaug pond, a considerable body of water, is situated partly in this town, and partly in Washington. The population of the town in 1810 was 1,096; in 1830 it was reduced to 986.

    The only hard facts - the A Judd Northrup genealogy:

    • The genealogy has some known errors and omissions especially with some of the families on the CT/NY border. Some family lines have been merged and some dates inaccurate. Connection of Amos Alvin and Gerrit is supported, Rachel as wife highly probable. Questions or possible errors: location of Alvin's 's birth. supported as NY but not (yet?) supported as Chatham; year of Amos birth may be 1780 (census) rather than 1778; location of Gerrit's birth CT not NY (census), Rachel's birth year may be 1780 rather than 1775.

    ...and the census listings for Amos and descendants (details below):

    • The census listings have errors in spelling and may reflect omissions or other errors as well.
    • It is quite possible that Amos and/or his parents moved from Milford, Ridgefield / South Salem, Fairfield / Wilton / Redding to Kent. We know his son, Alvin, moved closer to the coast when he and Sarah Wakeman Alvord Northrop changed their residence to Westport.We don't know if this was a return to known Northrop family connections. It appears to be a return to family connections for Sarah Wakeman Alvord.

    The Amos Questions:

    • Who were Amos' parents?
    • Where was Amos born?
    • Was Amos in Kent area before he married Rachel?
    • Where was Amos from birth to 1800?
    • Where was Amos and family in 1810 census?
    • Who is the extra female in the 1820 census?
    • Did Amos have a second or third marriage? Susan Chaugum? Sarah Osborn?
    • Was Amos' family,like the David Alvord Family from the Fairfield Redding area?

    While there are, so far, no traceable connections, there are interesting correlations with:

    Betts and Jelliff families -- possibly through Lewis Northrop/up.

    • William was in the carpentry business with Francis Jelliff (Southport, CT) and Betts and Northrop ran a carpentry business in Georgetown (Redding / Weston line). Betts and Jelliff families are related. see Jelliff page. There are marriages between Northrops and Betts (Ridgefield Norwalk area).
    • The same collection of names appears together in Ridgefield, Kent area and Lanesboro, MA

    Some kind of Elmore connection --

    Some kind of source for William, George and Francis Names in family or friends

    Some kind of source for Fenn middle name for William

    Some means to meet Ives family and Rachel of Wallingford/Cheshire

    • Lived Close to Wallingford? New Haven, Durham, Woodbridge, Woodbury
    • The Ives had connections in New Haven, Wallingford, Cheshire, and later Cornwall and Barkhamsted CT area; no connections in the upper Hudson area of NY near Chatham and no very early connections to Fairfield.
    • Religious or other connection?

    Northrop, Ives and Alvord connections may all be in one location

    • Plymouth is a location where Ives some Northrops and Alvords were in the same location. Many in Thomaston, Watertown, Waterbury, Litchfield as well.
    • Their co-location may be due to growing manufacturing concerns. Torrington, Hitchcocksville and Plymouth.erea cradles of innovation and industry from about 1790 to 1850. Industries include Chair making , Carriage making and clock making..

    Family Naming conventions don't seem consistent

    • Male First name sometimes from GGF First Name
    • Male Middle from Father's Father's Mother's maiden name
    • later generations Eldest male gets mother's maiden as middle, eldest female gets father's mother's maiden name.

    The "family sticks together" speculation

    In the absence of more definitive information, I've reviewed possible neighbors in the census (where available). In census lists that are not alphabetical, I speculate name sequence reflects physical order of homes. Below are the names I watched for in the review.

    The table lists the results as likely extended family connections. I speculate the earlier data is more likely to be significant. The years are links to images of the census pages.

    With the inaccuracies of early maps, it's difficult to tell the exact borders of the older, larger, Litchfield. It may have encompassed as much as with area of green above -- parts of Plymouth, Washington, Kent and Warren.

    A the Torrington, Hitchcocksville, Winchester, Plymouth area is a nexus of family names - references to Ives, Alvords, Northrops, Fenns and some others. . The region, with it's favorable water power, was a cradle of innovation and industry from about 1790 to 1850. It included Chair making, Carriage making and Clock-making -- all of which may have family connections.

    Chairs Alvord/Alford The famous Hitchcock chairs were manufactured in Riverton/ Hitchcockville. Jesse Ives was a Riverton/Hitchcocksville Tavern Owner and postmaster across from the Hitchcock chair factory. His connection is more remote - he and Rachel may share a GG grandfather (Joseph).

    An interesting Ives connection -- Jesse Ives wrote the obituary for one of the Barkhamsed lighthouse tribe. Amos second or third wife was from this tribe. Barkhamsted tribe -- one of Chaugum girls marries John Elwell (b. 1815) may have been Amos neighbor???

    Carriages Alvord Sarah's brother Nelson ends up manufacturing carriages in Torrington -- apparently quite a successful business.

    Clocks Ives Have yet to find connection for clockmaker Ives to Rachel.

    Some of the epitaphs are in the form of admonition to the living to reform their ways that they may die in peace - the Rev. Joseph Bellamy's stone.

    Beneath the roots of tangled weeds,
    Afar in country graveyards lie,
    The men whose unrecorded deeds,
    Have stamped this nation's destiny

     

    The prosperity of the town of Kent was checked with the advent of the railroad. It was once a flourishing community when every night twenty- one two and four horse teams could be seen entering the town from the direction of Quaker hill loaded with iron ore to be cast into pigs and then hauled thirty miles to Poughkeepsie to market. The crack of the whips of so many drivers is gone and the charm of the town now lies in its quietness and solitude.

    .....The period of the settlement of Kent was that of Connecticut's first attack of the western fever, and this is how it was brought on. As has been said, but little value was attached to the teritory of Litchfield county, before the beginning of the last century. There was lan<l enough nearer the center of the colony, and the population was still too limited for the peopling of new towns. But after the reinstatement of the colonial charter in 1694, and the consequent restored security of the colony, enterprise, which had languished during the reign of James, revived, the population of the colony increased, and inquiry began to be made for territory for new settlements. The earliest response to this demand, in this section of the state,.was the exploration and sale of the territory of the town of Litchfield. This territory was included in the "Western Lands" conveyed by the colony to the towns of Hartford and Windsor in 1686-7, and the sale of it was the ilrst disposal of that territory which the towns had made. In the spring of 1715, a committee of these towns, of whom John Marsh, the ancestor of the Marshes of Litchfield, was one, and the seeming chief, visited the region, "viewed" it, and secured deeds of it from the Indians; their bills for service, against the towns, giving intimation of the primitive wildness of the region, as by the following items from the Hartford records: —...

    The sale of the territory of Litchfleld by the towns of Hartford and Windsor, roused the colony to assert its claim to the Western Lands, and in 1719 at the May session, the legislature enacted: —

    "That the whole of said tract of Land shall lie for the further dispose of this assembly, and all surveyors and persons appointed to lay out lands, are hereby forbidden to bound or lay out any of said land without the special order of this assembly."

    Nevertheless, Hartford and Windsor went on disposing of the land, and a fierce controversy arose between the colony on the one side, and these two towns and the settlers in the Western Lands to whom they had sold tracts, on the other, which was settled as records show, by compromise, in 1726, the colony taking one, the western half, and the two towns the other, the eastern half; Litchfield, as already disposed of, being left out of the division.

    This long controversy had thoroughly advertised the unsettled lands,

    1738; Cornwall at Fairfield, in February of the same year; Kent at Windham, in March;

    ...young men "went west to grow up with the country;" and all north and east of Kent was alive, as was itself, with the interest of.new settlement.

    all at once," to use a familiar phrase, the country sprang into life at the period of the settlement of Kent: Nortnbury church, organized 1740; Westbury, 1740; Bethlehem, 1740; Washington, 1742; Kent, 174i; Goshen, 1740; Cornwall, 1741; Canaan, 1741; Torrington, 1741; Harwinton, 1737; New Hartford, 1738. So that Kent was by no means born alone. Its settlement was but one manifestation of a movement that pervaded the colony, the first great set of Connecticut's westward tide; the tide that, with its successive flowings, has peopled the continent with its best inhabitants and noblest life.

    While the new life of Kent society was crystalizing into form, the same process of the beginnings of religious and civil organization was going on in the communities around it. As the primeval forest still covered this parish, unbroken save by the settler's clearings, so over Litchfield county the primitive wilderness stretched unbroken, save where here and there the centres were being established of the several towns. It is the period from which the life of Litehfield county takes its date.

    Westbury, now Watertown, was constituted an ecclesiastical society in 1738, the same year as Kent.

    In Bethlehem, the first settlers are petitioning the General Assembly to be constituted a distinct society, which petition was granted at the October session, 1739, and the church was organized the following spring, March 27, 1740.

    In Washington, too, the first settlement is under way, the pioneer settler, Joseph Hurlburt, locating there in 1736, and the community petitioning in 1741, to be organized into an ecclesiastical society, which was done by the General Assembly at the October session of that year, the society being named "Judea," likely from the hill country of Palestine, which of old bore that name. Immediately on the organization of the society, the building of the meeting-house was proceeded with, the inhabitants stating, in a petition to the General Assembly in May 1742,that they had "Unanymously and Lovingly Agreed upon a place for to set a Meeting House; ' the only instance of the kind in the early history of the county. The house was built during the same year; the cnurch being organized Sept. 1st., 1742; Rev. Reuben Judd, the first pastor being ordained the same day; the ceremonies taking place in a grove—the other society in the town, that of New Preston, was organized October, 1752.

    Into the "Wilderness" the first invasion was the settlement of Litchfield, and this introduces us to one of the most curious and interesting chapters of Connecticut history, as well as to a matter which early engaged the attention of Northbury; it being the subject of a controversy which the new society waged with the mother town, from the time of its organization as a society until after it became a town itself—the famous affair of the"Western Lands." In the records of Waterbury, 1741, there is the following entry with reference to the matter: —

    "There having been considerable discourse about the money for which the western lands were sold and granted for the use of the school, and not agreeing in what method it should be disposed of, (the town) did by vote agree that they would refer it to some indifferent gentlemen, to be decided by them where the said money shall be disposed, whether it belongs to the first parish (of Waterbury) or should be divided among the several parishes (including Westbury and Northbury)."

    What were these "western lands?" The original title to the territory of New England was the grant, in 1620, by James I. to the Plymouth Company, of England of

    "All that part of America lying and being in breadth from the fortieth degree of north latitude, from the equinoctial line, to the forty-eighth degree of said northerly latitude inclusively, and in length of and with all the breadth aforesaid, throughout the main land from sea to sea."

    The old deeds refer frequently to the Fairweather purchase, but as there is no deed on record in Kent of this property a search was made through the old colonial records where it was found that in 1707 there was a large tract of land granted to Hon. Nathaniel Gold, Peter Burr and several others of Fairfleld for a township in what is now the southern portion of Kent and the northern portion of New Milford, and that they in turn sold a part or all of it to Robert Silliman, Richard Hubbell and Benjamin Fairweather, the latter being described as the "cornet of the troop in Fairfleld." The latter's purchase contained some 3,800 acres and was six miles in length from east to west and three hundred rods wide. When the owner died the large tract was divided between his heirs.

    1826

    About this time there was considerable agitation to have a canal from Stockbridge, Mass., to tide water at Derby. This is the language of the resolution the town meeting passed: "That we claim it is the interest and duty of every individual situated near the proposed route to aid and assist in the completion of this object oy endeavoring to promote and otherwise concert in measures calculated to effect it by lending funds as circumstances may enable and the vastness of the undertaking may require. That no other route to tide water heretofore suggested is by us regarded as equally important or can equally well accommodate this town or that portion of the public subjected to land carriage which lies between the Connecticut and Hudson rivers."

    May. 1739, passed a resolution that "the military companies in the towns of Kent, Woodbury, New Milford, Litchfleld, Cornwall, Goshen, Canaan, Norfolk, Salisbury, Sharon, and New Pairfleld shall be one entire regiment to be distinguished by the name of the Thirteenth regiment."

    ...The War of the Revolution impoverished where it did not devastate. For many years there was practically no money. Mr. Bordwell was from necessity a farmer, and during the long winter a tutor as well; for like most of the ministers of the day, he fitted many a boy for college. The spiritual destitution of the period was even greater than the material. Skepticism and infidelity were rampant, and the church that held its own did well.

    EPISCOPAL
    The next rector was Samuel Clark, who went to New Milford in 1768. He was a native of West Haven and a graduate of Yale college. Under him the first real attempts at organization were made. They are upon the parish register two very old documents of his day; they are the earliest records the parish now possesses. The first of these papers is dated at New Milford February 7, 1770; it is a receipt to Reuben Swift for his ministerial (church tax) for the year 1769. The second is dated Dec. 2, 1771, and shows that occasional services were being kept. It is a notice of Mr. Clark's intention to preach in Kent the coming Sunday. It was owing to the co-operation of this worthy layman, Reuben Swift, that the church for which Mr. Palmer began to gather subscriptions in 1760, was finally built in 1772 or early in 1773. Mr. Swift lived just to see it finished as he died the same year. This ancient building stood about thirty yards to the south of the present church. It was afterwards converted into a town hall, and still later the frame was used for a barn, now the property of George Hopson.

    Mr. Clark remained at his post until 1787 when he migrated to Nova Scotia. The years 1768-87 covered by Mr. Clark's ministry were dark days for the church in America. The nearest bishop was 3,000 miles across the Atlantic. It was not until 1785 that a bishop set foot upon these shores. Besides the want of a bishop there were other hardships to bear. The church was small in numbers; she was hated and despised by the multitude who regarded Episcopacy as hostile to civil as well as religious liberty. When the war really broke out many of the clergy had to fiee, others were persecuted and imprisoned, churches were closed, many of them desecrated and defiled by the mob.

    In 1790 Rev. Truman Marsh was stationed at New Milford and remained for nine years, and it is probable he looked after the church in Kent. In February, 1808, the parish was duly organized according to the state laws, the first officers being Lewis St. John, clerk; Reuben Booth, moderator; John Smith, treasurer. In May following Rev. Sturgis Gilbert was offered $6 to preach every third Sunday during the summer. May 4, 1809, a meeting was called to see whether the society would adopt the constitution of the church in America as set forth by general convention. From 1808 to 1816 yearly meetings were held on the great plain of Kent as it was then called. In the latter year the old church was renovated. In September Mr. Gilbert was released from his contract. The records are broken from here until 1819, when in April of that year at the annual meeting the committee of the church were authorized to lay out the present subscriptions lately obtained in hiring, as it was said, Rev. George B. Andrews to officiate as clergyman. Under him the old church which had been built nearly fifty- two years in 1820 was consecrated. Mr. Andrews immediately afterward set to work to build the present edifice. On September 30, 1822, a meeting was called to adopt plans for building. Jeremiah Fuller, John H. Swift, Garrett Winegar, Alpheus Fuller, and John Hurd, were chosen as a building committee. The original papers, contracts, etc., are still preserved. Various subscription papers tell of the struggles of the faithful few to get the church built. Those who had no money to give gave of their goods, timber, stone, brick, or lime, anything in short, that would prove available as building,

    M. E. CHURCH AT GAYLORDSV1LLE.

    Many of the people in the southern part of the town are connected with the Methodist Episcopal church in Gaylordsville, and that church must not be overlooked in enumerating the religious forces of the town. For many years it has maintained regular preaching services at Ore Hill and Bulls Bridge. Situated at the Center, as the churches are, there are many who find it difficult to reach them, and the neighborhood Sunday schools at South Kent, Bulls Bridge, Macedonia, and North Keat have been, and are, of inestimable value.

    Mention should here be made of Rev. Wm. H. Kirk, a consecrated Reformed Methodist minister, who was for fifty-one years a resident of tho town of Kent. He was born of Scottish parentage in Springfield, Vermont, March 24, 1824. His mother was a lineal descendant of Robert Bruce, the eminent Scottish chief, and a daughter of Rev. Rufus Bruce of Chester, Vermont. Mr. Kirk was converted to Christ at the age of ten years, and for sixty-one years was a devout Christian. He edited for several years the denominational paper of his church, which was published under the name of "The Banner and Banquet." His church granted him license as an exhorter at the age of seventeen years and in 1844, at a sitting of the Vermont annual conference of the Reformed Methodist church he was ordained an elder in said church, which office he held until his death on February 19, 1896, at Kent. He was always under appointment by his conference as pastor, visiting elder or evangelist, in which capacity he labored faithfully and successfully in different states in the Union. Mr. Kirk was an anti-slavery man during the days of slavery, and was one of the only three men in the town of Kent to vote the anti-slavery ticket when that ticket was first presented to the people, the other two being the late Rev. Jeremiah Fry and the late Deacon Lewis Spooner. He thereafter voted with the Republican party until the excitement of war times began to subside when it was discovered that the greatest foe to our race was the liquor traffic. Accordingly, he identified himself with the Prohibition party. Possessing great strength of character and independence of thought, he was never misunderstood as to his sentiments. He was the champion of every cause and measure that tended to suppress vice and exalt virtue. Sympathetic and kind towards the suffering and distressed, he was often called to comfort bereaved ones in officiating at funerals until he had attended one thousand during his ministry He took a Christian interest In the welfare of the Scatacook Indians and many of them, under his influence became Christians. The oldest remaining members of the tribe declare him to have been the first person to visit their reservation and tell them they "had souls and might have a Saviour." January 12, 1845, he was married to Miss Maria Houghton of Pownall. Vermont. Their three children were: Sarah A., wife of Edward Eaton, of Warren; Laura J., wife of Edward Thorpe, and a resident of Danvers, Mass., and Charles F., who married Miss Lillian Newton, and resides in Kent.

    While of a social nature, of Mr. Kirk it could be truly said he feared God, and feared nothing else but sin. Eminently successful as a revivalist, many of the members of different churches in and around Kent were converted under his labors and teaching. For a period of more than three years previous to his death he was an invalid, suffering from a partial paralysis and other diseases.

    In 1757, Jabez Smith was chosen overseer of the tribe; being the first officer of the kind appointed for the Scatacooks.

    The Half-Way Covenant was a form of partial church membership created by New England Puritans in 1662. It was promoted in particular by the Reverend Solomon Stoddard, who felt that the people of the English colonies were drifting away from their original religious purpose. First-generation settlers were beginning to die out, while their children and grandchildren often expressed less religious piety, and more desire for material wealth.

    Full membership in the tax-supported Puritan church required an account of a conversion experience, and only persons in full membership could have their own children baptized. Because the second and third generations, and later immigrants, did not have the same stresses of leaving their home country to follow their faith, they did not have the same conversion experiences. These individuals were thus not accepted as members despite leading otherwise pious and upright Christian lives. It was significant because after years, wealth grew stronger and just about anyone could become a member.

    In response, the Half-Way Covenant provided a partial church membership for the children and grandchildren of church members. Those who accepted the Covenant, and agreed to follow the creed and rules of the church, could become church members without claiming a spiritual experience. These half-members could not vote on any issues within the church, although all members could participate in the sacrament of the Supper.

    Puritan preachers hoped that this plan would maintain some of the church's influence in society, and that these 'half-way members' would see the benefits of full membership, be exposed to teachings and piety which would lead to the "born again" experience, and eventually take the full oath of allegiance. Many of the more religious members of Puritan society rejected this plan as they felt it did not fully adhere to the church's guidelines, and many of the target members opted to wait for a true conversion experience instead of taking what they viewed as a short cut.

    Overall, religious piety began to decrease and secular values began to become more prevalent in colonial society.[citation needed]

    Response to the Half-Way Covenant may have sown the seeds for the First Great Awakening in the 1730s, launched by Stoddard's grandson Jonathan Edwards. Along with Calvinist evangelist George Whitefield, he preached that God is "in the now", and there must be an "urgent call for languid will", in response to the half-hearted will that the Half-Way Covenant allows.

    1787 society incorporated into a town

    Bethlem is a small town, ita average length being four and a half miles, and its breadth four miles. Its population by the census of 1850, was 815. It is almost wholly an agricultural town, its soil being fertile, with little waste land. It has, however, one woolen manufactory, two wagon shops, three saw-mills, one grist-mill, three cider distilleries, one blacksmith's shop, one shoemaker's shop, and three mercantile stores. It also has two churches, a town hall, a flourishing lyceum, two ministers and one physician.

    washington

    The present town of Washington is made up of territory taken from the towns of Woodbury, New Milford, Kent, and Litchfield, and is about six miles square. It contains two ecclesiastical societies, Judea and New Preston, though not the whole of the latter is included within the town. Judea society embraces all the territory taken from Woodbury and Litchfield, and constitutes about two-thirds of the extent of the town. But a small portion of this is contributed by Litchfield. New Preston embraces all the territory taken from Kent and New Milford. In both of these societies are Episcopal churches, having houses for religious worship. The first settlement in the town was made in Judea society, in 1734, the year this society and Bethlehem were divided among the proprietors of Woodbury. Joseph Hurlbut was the first settler, and the first framed house was built in 1736. The next settlers after Hurlbut were Increase Moseley, Nathaniel Durkee, John Baker, Friend Weeks, Joseph Gillett and Samuel Pitcher. The first sermon preached in the society was by Isaac Baldwin, of Litchfield, who afterward relinquished his profession, and became the first clerk of the county court for Litchfield county

    Five years later, the inhabitants had become more numerous, and twenty persons preferred a memorial to the General Assembly, at its May session, 1739, representing that they lived " full eight miles from the Meeting House," and that their wives and children had " to . tarry at home from the worship of God about half of the year," and therefore they pray for " liberty to have preaching six months in the winter," and to be released from paying taxes for a new school-house just built in the first society, and also from parish taxes, that they may build a school-house of their own. The privilege asked for was granted, to continue two years, and they were released from one-half of the parish taxes, and from taxes to build a new meeting-house, provided they were " in no ways Active in the Affair of Building a new Meeting House in said first Society."1 At the October session, 1741, twenty-six individuals petitioned to be incorporated into an ecclesiastical society, and appointed " Our Trusty and well-beloved friend, Friend Weeks, agent and attorney to prosecute our Petition." The petition was signed by Nathaniel Durkee, John Baker, Joseph Gillett, Joseph Chittenden, Elisha Stone, Samuel Pitcher, Jr., James Pitcher, Increase Moseley, Lemuel Baker, Daniel Castle, Samuel Branton, Ezra Terrill, Jr., Ebenezer Allen, Zadock Clark, Elijah Hurd, Joseph Hurd, Joseph Hurlbut, Benjamin Ingraham, Jr., Robert Durkee, Samuel Bell, Jonah Titus, Benjamin Ingraham, John Royce, John Hurd, Jr., Jedediah Hurd, Benjamin Hinman.

    non-resident owners will not sell to settlers.

    till the troubles arose which involved the country in the war of the Revolution. The unhappy divisions in this society then arose to a high pitch. Almost the entire people became dissatisfied with their minister, though no heresy nor scandal was alleged against him. This contention finally ceased, after which Mr. Brinsmads was much respected till his death,

    December, 1795, Rev. Ebenezer Porter came here and preached the greater part of the time till his ordination Sept. 7, 1796 Dr. Porter was dismissed from his pastoral charge, Dec. 18,1811, having been elected Professor of Andover Theological Seminary.-not far from the so-called ' Athens of America."

    In 1753, a putrid fever prevailed in this society, of which twenty or thirty died in six months. In 1776, the dysentery prevailed with great mortality. About thirty persons were swept away by it to the grave. During the preceding year, not a single death occurred, and for the last twenty years preceding 1812, the average mortality in the society was but about one per cent, of the population per annum.

    During the first seventy years after the establishment of the church, the people of Judea were uniformly prosperous and happy. They were never divided—never split into sects—but deservedly acquired the reputation of being industrious, orderly and harmonious, with but one exception. The exception alluded to, was during the last ten years of Mr. Brinsmade's ministrations, from 1774 to 1784. This was a contention concerning the half-way covenant system, and it is worthy of notice, that during this whole period of ten years, but three members were added to the church. Thus do contentions, even for just causes, ever diminish the prosperity of the church.

    There have been several revivals, by which considerable numbers were added to the church, as follows: fifty-four in 1804; twenty in 1816; fifty-eight in 1821 ; twenty-nine in 1825; twenty-two in 1827 ; and one hundred and thirty-one in 1831.

    n October, 1748, eleven persons dwelling in the south-eastern part of Kent, and nine living in the north-eastern part of New Milford, petitioned the General Assembly for liberty to hire a minister six months in the year, on the ground of their living " from seven to ten miles from their places of worship in New Milford and Kent." This request was granted, to continue four years, with exemption from parish rates. Before the end of the four years, in May, 1752, forty- one individuals petitioned for a new ecclesiastical society. Their names were Samuel Averill, Caleb Rude, Samuel Lake, Moses Aver- ill, Henry Davis, Jehiel Murray, Isaac Averill, Joseph Carey, John Guthrie, Daniel Averill, Zebulon Palmer, Jacob Kinne, Samuel Cogs- well, Thomas Hodgship, Thos. Morris, Benj. Darling, Samuel Waller, Nathaniel Deuine, Enoch Whjttlesey, Joseph Jons, Stephen Bos- worth, Thomas Beeman, John Benedict, Stephen Noble, Gilead Sperry, Elnathan Curtis, John Bostwick, Benajah Bostwick, Matthew Beale, John Cogswell, Zephaniah Branch, Edward Cogswell, Emerson Cogswell, Josiah Cogswell, James Terrill, Joseph Miles, Nathan Hawley, Samuel Cogswell, John Cobb, Benjamin Capuen.

    At the same session, sixteen persons of East Greenwich, (now Warren,) remonstrated against the incorporation of a new society, stating that their society had lost " thirty-five rateable persons, and £1467 on their list," and that they therefore protest against having any part of their society cut off, as no families can be spared. Kent, at the same time, passed a vote, that this statement was true. New Milford also sent a committee to oppose the application, and it failed. In October, 1753, thirty-nine persons "in the Northern part of New Milford, and the South and South East part of Kent, and a place Called Merry-all," renewed the application for an ecclesiastical society, which was granted, and the society called New Preston, with the following boundaries :

    " Beginning at the South east corner of New Milford North Purchase, then tunning Southwardly joining upon Woodbury line one mile, from thence running a West line to ye part of the Long Mountain, South West of Capt. Bastwick's farm, then a Northline to the place called the Rockhorse Cobble, and so that course to Merryall line, and then across Merryall to Kent line, and then Running East to the South West corner of James Lake's farm North Easterly to the North West corner of John Henderson's farm, that he now lives on, then running East to East Greenwich line, then running South to y« South West corner of East Greenwich line to Sheppauge river, then running Southwardly upon s<l river to Woodbury Ijne, then running Westwardly on Woodbury line to y« first mentioned bounds," <kc.

    The first meeting of the society was held at the house of Jacob Kinne, Nov. 23, 1753. The officers chosen were Benajah Bostwick, Clerk, and Samuel "Waller, Stephen Noble and Joseph Gary, Society's Committee. A vote was then passed to " meet at Jacob Kinne's house for 3 months for public AVorship in the winter season," provided they could obtain a minister. John Bostwick, Samuel Waller and Samuel Averill, were appointed a committee to hire a minister for three months. On the first Monday in December following, the society laid a tax of 12rf. on the pound, to hire a minister " for a season." They also voted to build by subscription, " two school-houses for the use of the society, one to be located between Nathaniel Bost- wick's house and Steep Brook, in ye Highway, and the other near Joseph Gary's in the Highway." The following vote also passed :

    There have been several revivals, which added considerable numbers to the church : thirty in 1780 ; twenty-five in 1804 ; thirteen in 1812 ; eighty in 1816 ; forty-one in 1821; thirteen in 1826 ; thirty- eight in 1827 ; and thirteen in 1829.

    Washington, composed of the two societies of Judea and New Preston, was the first town incorporated in the state, after the declaration of independence. It was incorporated at a special session of the General Assembly, January 7,1779. The petitioners, who numbered forty-seven in Kent, one hundred and seventy-six in Woodbury, twenty in Litchfield, and twenty in New Milford, desired the Assembly to call their town by the name of Hampden, but their agents were persuaded to consent to have it called Washington, in honor of the commander-in-chief of the American armies. Its first meeting was held February 11, 1779, and William Cogswell was the first moderator.

    Its boundaries are as follows:

    " Beginning at the south-west corner of Judea parish; thence running a straight line easterly, to the south-west corner of Bethlehem, five miles and about one quarter of a mile; thence North by Bethlehem to Litchfield line, it being the north-west corner of Bethlehem ; thence continuing north in a straight line, to the north-east corner of the tract annexed from Litchfield; (the east line of Washington, so far as it is straight, is between five and six miles;) thence in a north-westerly direction, across the western part of Mount Tom, to Mount Tom bridge, crossing the western branch of Sheppauge river : thence in a line westerly, between Washington and Warren, to the West Pond; thence across said pond ninety rods to Fairweather's Grant. The diagonal line from the northeast corner of Washington to Mount Tom bridge, is about two miles and an half: the north line is about five miles in length. From the northwest corner of Washington the line runs about South, between Washington and

    Kent, one mile and a half to New Milford line; thence still South to the South line of New Milford, north purchase ; thence Southerly to the South-east bounds of the parish of New Preston, about one mile and an half; thence by New Mil- ford, about three miles and an half to the first mentioned bounds."

    This is a good agricultural town, and has a considerable manufacturing interest. There are within its limits, six mercantile stores, employing a capital of from $12,000 to $15,000 ; one woolen manufactory, employing a capital of some $10,000, and making from 70,000 to 80,000 yards of cloth annually. There are two forges, not now in operation, and one cotton manufactory. There are two pocket furnaces with machine shops attached, employing from twelve to twenty men each, four wagon shops, one saddler's shop, one tannery, one chair and cabinet shop, one manufactory for making carpet yarn and seine twine, and fourteen saw-mills. From 600 to 1,000 casks of lime are annually burned, and from 25,000 to 30,000 feet of marble per annum, are quarried and sawed. There are three Congregational churches, and two Episcopal; a celebrated female seminary, under the care of Miss Brinsmade, and a select school for boys, under the care of Frederick W. Gunn, A. B. There is also a good circulating library. The population of the town, by the census of 1850, is 1,802.

    In 1708, an act of toleration passed, allowing all persons who should conform to it, the liberty of worshiping God in a way separate from that established by law, but it did not excuse them from paying taxes to the approved, settled ministers of the churches. In 1727, the members of the church of England made an application to the legislature to be exempted from paying taxes for the support 'of the ministry of any other denomination, and for liberty to tax themselves for the support of their own ministry. Accordingly an act was passed, directing that all persons within the limits of a parish, belonging to the church of England, and to the churches established by law, should be taxed by the same rule, and in the same proportion, for the support of the ministry in such parish, and where there was a society of the church of England, so near to any person who had declared himself to be of that church, that he could conveniently and did ordinarily attend public worship there, then the collector of the tax, on levying the same, should pay it to that minister of the church of England on which such person attended, who should have power to receive and recover the same ; and when the amount so obtained should be insufficient for the support of any such minister, the members of the society were vested with the power of taxing themselves, and they were also exempted from paying taxes for building or repairing the meeting-houses of the established churches. The same privileges were afterward granted to other dissenters from the established faith. In the revision of 1784, all dissenters were exempted from paying taxes to the established societies, where they had a society of their own and contributed to its support, on lodging a certificate from such church or society, properly authenticated, of the fact of such membership. Some disputes having arisen as to the validity of such certificates, and suspicions arising that an undue advantage was taken of the law, an act was passed, May, 1791, directing that certificates to be valid, must be approved by a justice of the peace. This law excited general disapprobation, and in October, the same year, an act was passed, authorizing dissenters to make certificates in their own names, and lodge them with the clerk of the society, in the limits of which they lived, which should exempt them from taxes as long as they ordinarily attended public worship in the society which they joined, and dissenting societies were authorized to tax themselves for all the purposes of other ecclesiastical societies. This was in effect placing all religious denominations on the same footing. Yet there was a nominal distinction, members of one society being obliged to lodge certificates with another. But now by the constitution, all distinction among societies is done away, and all denominations are placed on equal ground.

    In 1746, William Cogswell's father, Edward, secured the right to mine iron ore in the New Milford North Purchase.

    The Iron Works was established along the Aspetuck River, near the foot of the road leading to New Preston hill. The Iron Works was the first industry in the North Purchase.

    During the first half of the 19th century, a variety of new industries began to spring up and flourish in the town of Washington. A coopers' shop prospered in Marbledale, while grist, cider, flax and saw mills churned.

    Factories producing everything from twine, hats and cheese boxes to ax handles, shoes and harnesses were able to thrive in the growing community.

    Turnpikes were built to connect Washington to neighboring communities, and by 1872 the area's first railroad -- The Shepaug Railroad -- was expanding the small town's reach. (The Shepaug Railroad ran a freight line until 1948.)

    The town of Southbury was one of several towns formed out of a parcel of land purchased from the Paugussett Indians in 1659. It was originally part of Woodbury, which was settled in 1673. A new meetinghouse for the Southbury Ecclesiastical Society was built in 1733, and in 1787 the town of Southbury was incorporated.[1] Although incorporated as part of Litchfield County, Southbury has been in New Haven county for most of its existence.[2]

    In the 1800s, water power became essential to the growth of Southbury's industries, which included mills, tanneries, and distilleries.[3] The water power came primarily from the Pomperaug[4] and Housatonic rivers. As the industrial revolution progressed, many of these businesses left for Waterbury.

    Sources:
    1. Text: The evidence that Asahel Dutton and Sarah Frisbie were the parents of Asahel E. Dutton is circumstantial, but highly pursuasive:
      1.Asahel and Sarah's birth dates and marriage date are appropriate for them being the parents of the younger Asahel.
      2. The fact that both men had the same name is an obvious clue.
      3. The younger Asahel named one of his sons James Frisbie Dutton. James Frisbie was the name of one of Sarah's brothers.
      4. James Frisbie shared a claim to land in Bradford county, Pennsylvania with Solomon Moss, who was the father-in-law of the younger Asahel Dutton.
      5. The families of both the suspected parents and Asahel E. Dutton all moved to Poultney, VT. Sarah Frisbie and 4 of her brothers moved to the Poultney area when the younger Asahel was a young child. Further, the sister of the elder Asahel, Lois Dutton, moved to Poultney. The first docuement event involving the younger Asahel was his moving from Poultney in 1800.

    Perhaps something more than Ethan Allen’s personal charism made the Brownsons especially responsive to his influence. Allen had joined the Brownson family back in Connecticut; he had married Mary, the daughter of Cornelius Brownson, on June 23, 1762, in Judea parish, Woodbury. The wedding ceremony cost him four shillings. (9)

    Between the years 1806 and 1816 several boys had drifted away from the Sandwich Islands as seamen and became temporarily residents of New England ; some of them had begun to acquire an education by private assistance and a few, in 1816, were gathered into a flourishing school at Morris, Conn. Henry Obookiah, one of the most influential, had joined the church in Torringford the previous year, and was preparing to be a missionary to his native land under the direction of the Litchfield North Consociation.

    Life and letters of Horace Bushnell"

    Tracing the family lineage of the Bushnells, we find them among the first settlers of Guilford and later of Saybrook,. Conn. We learn of no titled or distinguished persons among them. Whether Francis Bushnell, " ye elder," signer of the covenant for the settlement of Guilford, made on ship-board
    by the colonists in June, 1639, was or was not the father of the three original Saybrook Bushnells remains a moot point among genealogists, but there was undoubtedly a relationship between them. Deacon Francis Bushnell, Lieutenant Will iam Bushnell and Kichard Bushnell, all of Saybrook, were brothers, and from them the Connecticut Bushnells are de scended. Fifth in the line of descent from Lieutenant Will iam was Abraham Bushnell, \vho married Molly Ensign of West Hartford and Salisbury, lived many years at Canaan Falls, Conn., and finally removed to Starksboro, Vermont. They had thirteen children, the second of whom was Ensign, the father of Horace Bushnell.^

    * For genealogy see note p. 569 et seq.

    EARLY LIFE AT HOME.

    In 1805, Eiisign Buslmell removed his family to New Preston, a village about fifteen miles distant from Litchfield, and in the most picturesque part of the same county. There is reason to think that the inducement to this removal lay in the superior water-power of New Preston, and that an interest in carding wool and dressing cloth by machinery had come to Ensign Bushnell from his father at Canaan Falls, where was erected in 1802 the first carding machine ever built in the State. At all events this, in addition to farming, soon became his business.

    The scenery of New Preston abounds in lovely pictures of which Lake Wararnaug is the centre. Its outline is irregular, the shores hilly and on the east even mountainous and densely wooded. From the base of a mountain on the eastern side, known as the Pinnacle, the lake turns westward with a wider sweep, its banks indented with little coves and crowned with green farms, which are freshened here and there by sparkling brooks. Boiling hills fill the western distance. The scene is one of purely New England character, full of fresh suggestion and rural charm untamed by culture. The outlet is from the southern end, and pours its foaming stream through a narrow valley, from which the hills on either side rise steep ly. The little mills and shops which line this stream and use its water-power, and the rugged farms that climb these hill sides, compose the village of New Preston, which still, nes tled in the safe seclusion of woods and mountains, keeps much of its old character of remoteness from the world.

    The Bushnells chose their farm and fixed their home upon the southeastern slope of " a broad-backed hill, which stretches a mile upward and westward to a rounded summit, where stands the church." As this hill turns its back upon the lake, the view does not include the water, but is a wide outlook down the winding valley and across the rolling summits of the hills which, for ten miles, part it from that of the Housatonic. The farm lying on this sunny slope is a rough and rocky one one to tax the strength and patient skill of him who tilled it. " No ornamental rock-work is needed to set off the landscape. Nature s rock-work will stand, and the toil that is necessary to clear the soil is just what is requisite to sharpen the vigor of our people. The necessities of a rough country and an intractable soil are good necessities."
    This was the lesson of early experience as recalled by Horace Bushnell in manhood. the New Preston Academy was opened, in 1818

    Litciifield, the shire town of the county, is 58 miles from Hartford, by rail, and has a population of about 3,000. The township is on high land, with strong soil. Bantam Lake, tire largest body of water in the county, is situated partly in this town. The village commands a beautiful and extensive prospect, and has a fine park in the centre, in which stands a monument to commemorate the lives of those who fell in the late war. The prominent buildings are the old court-house, with its turret and bell; the jail, and a new Congregational church edifice costing about $30,000. With its beautiful shade-trees, the village, at present, is a most delightful resort for those in quest of pleasure and recreation. The Lake-view House, capable of accommodating several hundred people, is a sightly place, and a favorite resort for metropolitan guests during the heated term. The city of New York, distant about 115 miles by rail, is reached by the Norwalk, Ilousatonic, Shepaug and Naugatuck railroads. The churches in the town are six in number; and there are two banks, one newspaper, and 20 public schools. Manufacturing is carried on to a greater or less extent at East Litchfield, Bantam Falls, Milton and Northfield.

    Among the eminent men of Litchfield have been Oliver Woleott (172C-97), the commander of a company in the French war, first sheriff of the county, delegate to Congress in 1775, and signer of the Declaration of Independence, and governor of the State at the time of his death; Benjamin Tallmadge (1754—1835), a colonel in the Revolutionary war, serving with distinction in many battles, several times a representative in Congress, and instrumental in causing the capture of Maj. Andre; Gen. Uriah Tracy (1755-1807), congressman and U. S. senator; Hon. O. S. Seymour, LL. D., former member of Congress and chief justice of the State; George C.

    (The Mitchell Line).New England families, genealogical and memorial By William Richard Cutter

    Stephen Northrup was born in Salisbury, Connecticut, in 1780, and died in Fulton Settlement in 1872. At the time of his decease, he was the last of the pioneers of his locality. He came to Bethel (prob NY)in May, 1807, and after viewing the country, concluded to go back to his birthplace. When he reached the Neversink, he met /Minimi Hawley, one of his old neighbors, who was. moving to Bethel with his family. Hawley was very glad to meet him; but sorry to learn that he was returning. After a conversation concerning their affairs, Northrup was led to alter his purpose once more, and again return to Fulton Settlement.

    This meeting took place on the east side of the Neversink. The river was very much swollen by the spring rains. There was no bridge, and the ford was impassable: at least Hawley did not dare to put his oxen, cart, wife and children in peril by attempting to cross in the usual manner. So he took the yoke from the necks of his cattle, and compelled them to swim over a short distance from the ford, where the water was smooth and deep. Then he unloaded his cart, took off its wheels and box, and conveyed or towed every thing to the opposite shore in or behind a log canoe! The task was difficult and dangerous: but was safely performed, and the adventurers proceeded on their way.
    * Adam, a ion of John Pintler, was born May 2, 1805. and Eve Flutter was born October 7,1808. Both of these births preceded that of Catharine Fulton

    They spent two days in traveling from the Neversink to the west-branch of the Mongaup. When they passed the latter, a heavy rain set in. Night was approaching, and they were in an almost trackless forest, far from human nabitation. The discomforts of the day were bad enough; but they were far exceeded by the prospective miseries of the night. The first care of the men was for the young mother and her two little children. With an axe they made the frame of a diminutive tent, which they covered with blankets. In this, Mrs. Hawley and the little ones passed the dismal night, while the men fared as well as they could under the dripping trees.

    On the third day they reached a clearing made by one of the Fultons, where they found a deserted cabin. Into this Hawley moved. Having thus piloted his friends to their new home, Xorthrup returned to Connecticut, and three weeks later came back with, his family. After occupying a temporary shelter for a few months, he moved to the place where he spent the remainder of his days. During the last fifty-six years of his life, his daily walk and conversation were in accord with the strict rules of the Presbyterian faith. He never sought to occupy a conspicuous position in this life; but was content with what was far better: the discharge, honestly and earnestly, of those duties which give life and beauty to Christian society.Joseph K. Northrup, a son of Stephen, was the first male child born hi Fulton Settlement.

    1810, at which William Gillett and Julius Camp were chosen wardens, Daniel
    Booth, Jeremiah Platt, and James Jessup, vestrymen, William Gillett, reading
    clerk, Samuel Lockwood, treasurer; also David Merwin, Joseph Wheeler, Blackman Jessup, Jeremiah Canfield, Treat Canfield, Jehiel Summers, and John Treat were chosen choristers, and Joel Sanford was elected to attend the State Convention within the year.

      The service was held at the dwellings of the several members, but more frequently at the house of Jonas Sanford, by lay-readers and neighboring ministers, for nearly twenty years, when an effort was made to build a house of worship. The site was located near the old burying-place west of where they finally built their first house, and the timber for the frame was collected at that place, but the question of the location or something of the kind caused the work to cease, and the matter was delayed some time. In 1835, the first house was erected about half a mile south of the present village, in the field, and afterwards a highway was made past it for the accommodation of the people. This building is still standing, is two stories high, and in a beautiful location. Soon after this the village began to increase in dwellings and population, and to become a center of trade, in consequence of the increase of the business of manufacturing hats, particularly by Glover Sanford, and this house of worship was found to be inconveniently located. Hence, in 1859 anew edifice was erected in the village where it now stands, which was consecrated March 14, 1860, by the Rt. Rev. John Williams.

      Among those ministers who officiated here before a house of worship was erected, are the names of Rev. B. Northrop, the Rev. Benjamin Benham of New Milford, and the Rev. Joseph S. Covel. Since 1835 the church has been under the pastoral charge of the following clergymen: Revs. Joseph S. Covel, Abel Nichols, George H. Nichols, William Atwell, Abel Ogden, William O. Jarvis, H. F. M. Whitesides, Abel Nichols, Merritt H. Wellman, William H. Cook, James Morton, H. D. Noble, X. Alanson Welton, W. B. Colburn, D.D., and G. V. C. Eastman, D.D., who resigned and removed to the West in 1882.

      The officers of the parish at the present time are: Jeremiah G. Randall, Eli Sturdevant, Wardens; Arza C. Morris, Albert B. Mallett, and Amos Northrop,
    Vestrymen (in 1882);
    Arza C. Morris, Treasurer; Jeremiah G. Randall, Delegate to Convention; and Eli Sturdevant, Clerk.

    In the year 1779, the township of Washington was formed in the County of Litchfield, and within its limits were included the lands owned by the Davies family, and it is recorded that on the 12th day of April, 1779, a number of the inhabitants took the oath of allegiance to the States, in open Freemen's Meeting.

    Among the names of those who, by the list given in the record, pledged themselves to the cause of the Revolution, we look in vain to find a single Davies, a fact which shows the steadfastness with which the whole family clung to their traditions of loyalty, although, possibly, it may not commend them to the patriotic feelings of their descendants.

    It had been the custom of Mr. John Davies to present annually to the Rev. Mr. Marshall, of Woodbury, a fat cow, and this he continued with great difficulty to do during the whole period of the war, although to accomplish this purpose in those times, it was necessary, as he has told, to take the animal by night, and by a long and circuitous route, to avoid being intercepted and robbed by those of the opposite political faith, in whose judgment a gift to an Episcopal clergyman was a treasonable offense. An instance of his generosity and kindness, which never failed even in those trying times, appears from an anecdote that is told in the biography of his youngest son, the Rev. Thomas Davies. After the close of the war a man who had taken an active part in driving off a number of cattle from his farm, and had committed other acts of plunder, having become destitute, applied for relief in his extremity to Mr. Davies, who not only pardoned him for the wrongs he had done, but liberally relieved his wants.

    After the close of the war, Mr. Davies' life was passed quietly and peacefully at his home, surrounded by his family, the greater part of whom depended upon him for support, and lived at or near the family homestead. His sons, John and William, had been ruined by the confiscation of their property during the war, and the latter had taken refuge in Canada.

    He still had in mind his father's wish that an Episcopal Church should be built at Birch Plains, upon the lands of the Davies family, and late in life he succeeded in accomplishing this object, as is told in Cothren's " History of Ancient Woodbury."

    After the separation of what was called Birch Plains or Davies Hollow from the township, the Davies family, one of considerable note and zealously attached to the Church, withdrew from the Litchfield Parish, and built a church edifice of their own in Davies Hollow, where, with assistance from some few families, who resided near, they sustained religious services according to the Liturgy of the Church of England, and kept up a distinct parochial organization, for a considerable period. The following is a copy of the Deed given by John Davies, father of Rev. Thomas Davies, to the Churchmen in Washington, making to them a conveyance of the lands upon which the house of worship was erected :

    " Know ye that I, John Davies, of that part of Washington formerly belonging to Litchfield, and known and called by the name of Birch Plains, in the County of Litchfield, for the consideration of an agreement or promise, made with and to my honored father, John Davies, late of Birch Plains, in said Litchfield, deceased, and for the love and affection I have and bear toward the people of the Church of England now in said town of Washington, and for securing and settling the service and worship of God among us, according to the usage of our most excellent Episcopal Church, whenever there shall be one legally organized in said Washington, and at all times forever hereafter, do therefore demise," etc., eta

    The measurement of the land as described in the deed must have been equal to ninety-six square poles, and it was restricted to use as a public burying- ground, and for the purpose of having a suitable place of worship erected upon it The same condition was annexed to it as that which was expressed in the deed given by his father to the church in Litchfield, viz.: the requirement of one peppercorn to be paid annually on the feast of St Michael the Archangel, if demanded. The above deed was given on the 2id of January, 1794. Upon this ground, principally at his own expense, an Episcopal Church subsequently was erected. Aged and infirm, and seated in an arm-chair at the door of his boose, he witnessed the raising of the edifice, with a feeling similar to that of the pious Simeon when he said, "Lord, now lettest thon thy servant depart in peace." He survived about three years, and at the age of eighty-six years he died on the 19th day of May, 1797, and was buried in the family burial-ground in Davies Hollow.

    The Underground Railroad in Litchfield County

    (And surrounding areas)





    This is information I have gleaned from reading area history books, talking with people, etc. If you have anything to add, any references I missed, any family oral traditions, I would appreciate hearing from you. I will include them in this page with your permission. Thank you.


    I am also working on a book, and this is only a fraction of the information that I have. Any help you can give, any information, even the slightest, would be most appreciated. I am interested not only in Litchfield County but any surrounding areas.

    The first undergroud RR in CT began around 1820 in New Haven,

    "the first anti-slavery society in Connecticut was started in Georgetown in Oct. 1838...
    On Dec. 4, 1838, the Georgetown Anti-Slavery Society was formed. President, Eben Hill; Secretary, William Wakeman; Treasurer, John C. St. John. Among those who were members of this Society were Sturges Bennett, Aaron Bennett, William Bennett, Sauruch Bennctt, Jonathan Betts, Alonzo Byington, Edwin Burchard, Walter Bates, Ezra Brown, Charles Cole, Benjamin Gilbert, William Gilbert, Matthew Gregory, Brad-ley Hill, Edmund Hurlbutt, John B. Hurlbutt, Aaron Jelliff, William Jelliff, Aaron Osborn, Gregory Osborn, Timothy Parsons, William Wakeman, Timothy Wakeman, and many others who years later became Republicans and voted for Abraham Lincoln.

    -Quotes from "The Underground Railroad in Connecticut" by Horatio T. Strother, 1962.

    -p. 121-122- " As a conductor, Wakeman (of Norwalk), was bold and tireless, taking his "packages of hardware and dry good" to places as distant as Plymouth and Middletown - trips of forty and fifty miles as the crow flies, farther than that by road....

    "William Wakeman of Wilton, Fairfield County and Joel Blakeslee of Plymouth, Litchfield County, Connecticut were Agents]"

    "[Reverend H. H. Northrop Conducted Slaves in Flint, Genesee County, Michigan]"

    "[Route from St. Joseph County to Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo County, Michigan, and then East not far from the Line Occupied by the Michigan Central Railroad; N. H. Northrop of White Pigeon Preached Anti-Slavery]"

    "[Reverend John Smith of Hartland, Windsor County, Vermont, Belonged to the Underground Railroad; Taler Grose and Soloman Northrup Aided Slaves]"

    "25 [Samuel Dutton and Amos Townsend were Station Keepers at New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut]"

    "[Wesley Cady was an Abolitionist in Central Village, Plainfield, Windham County, Connecticut]"

    from The Underground Railroad in Connecticut relating to Fairfield, Hartford, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London, Tolland, and Windham counties, Connecticut; Worcester County, Massachusetts; and Onondaga County, New York

    -p. 122- "The Plymouth operators, to whom Wakeman presumably made his deliveries, included Joel Blakeslee, Ferrand Dunbar, and William Bull. They not only handled passengers from Wilton; they also had to keep watch for unaccompanied fugitives on foot who had lost their way on the western line between New Haven and Farmington. The Plymouth "minute men" had to set these wanderers on the right track, which took them a dozen miles eastward to Farmington."

    -p. 123 -Thus it is known that New Milford was a center of Underground work; but whether fugitives came to this town by traveling northward from the vicinity of Wilton, or eastward via a lateral from the Hudson River line in New York, or both, remains unclear."

    -"There are several stations here, (New Milford), one of which was the house of Charles Sabin. Another was the home of Augustine Thayer. He and "his good wife devoted their lives to the Abolition cause. They helped many poor slaves on their way, rising from their beds in the night to feed and minister to them and secreting them till they could be taken under cover of darkness to Deacon Geradus Roberts' house on Second Hill and from there to Mr. Daniel Platt's house in Washington."

    -p. 123-124 - Frederick W. Gunn of Washington, Connecticut, who founded the private school bearing his name, "The direction or runaways on the road to freedom, however, remained Gunn's private affair.

    -p. 124-"Daniel Platt and his wife....accomodating "many a trembling black refugee" on their farm. ...Their son, Orville,...later recalled that "the slaves stayed, as a rule, but a short time, though some remained several weeks until it was learned through the channels of communication among the Abolitionists that their whereabouts was suspected." They were then forwarded to either of two destinations - to Dr. Vaill on the Wolcottville Road or to Uriel Tuttle in Torrington."

    -p. 124-125 - "Yet, curiously, Uriel Tuttle was the only Underground stationmaster here of whom a record survives.

    -p. 125- "At Winchester, a few miles north of Torrington and close to Winsted, there was a small but active antislavery society. Noble J. Everett was its secretary; Jonathan Coe, a member who lived in nearby Winsted, managed a well-patronized Underground station at his house. Another station many have been the home of Silas H. McAlpine, poet, philanthropist, and abolitionist of Winchester; in the foundation wall of his house was a hidden crypt that was possibly a hiding place for fugitives, but there is no positive evidence that it was so used."

    -p 126 - "Beyond this point, there were stations to the north in Colebrook and to the northwest in Norfolk. Who were the Undergroung agents in Colebrook remains unknown, but there were certainly several of them. One may have been J. H. Rodgers, secretary of the ninety-member antislavery society in 1836.

    -"It is also reported that there was a network of Underground byways in this vicinity and that residents of Norfolk were responsible for paving many of them."

    -p. 126-127- " For the fugitive traveling through northwestern Connecticut, Norfolk was the last stop in the state. From here, he was sent across the Massachusetts border to New Marlboro, thence over to the Housatonic River line through Stockbridge and Pittsfield to Bennington, Vermont."

    -from Appendix 2 - "Underground Railroad Agents in Connecticut" (Probable agents are indicated by *) Litchfield County Blakeslee, Joel - Plymouth Bull, William - Plymouth Coe, Jonathan - Winsted Dunbar, Daniel - Plymouth McAlpine, Silas H. * - Winchester Pettibone, Amos - Norfolk Roberts, Geradus - New Milford Sabin, Charles - New Milford Thayer, Augustine - New Milford Tuttle, Uriel - Torrington


    -Quotes from "Barkhamsted Heritage-Culture and Industry in a Rural Connecticut Town", edited by Richard G. Wheeler and George Hilton, 1975.

    -p. 235 - "Lamont's Christmas Tree Plantation - Located at the site of one of Barkhamsted's earliest houses, which saw use as an inn on the route from the Salisbury iron works toward Granby.....The house, known 50 years ago as the Oscar Tiffany place, was bought in 1952 by Thomas and Marguerite Lamont...Legend has it that the house was also a stop on the Underground Railroad."

    -Quotes from "Colebrook Stories", by Alan DeLarm, 1979.

    -"Chamberlain's hotel, The Colebrook River Inn, was at one time used as a station in the underground railroad." -"The Davidson house on the Old Colebrook Road is also said to have been an underground railroad station."


    -Quotes from "Howard Peck's New Milford - Memories of a Connecticut Town", edited by James E. Dibble, 1991.

    -p. 58-60- "Seventy-five years after the Bostwick place was erected it became one of the stations on the Underground Railroad. It is known that there was a hiding place beneath the floor of the attic. This compartment could hold two persons, and as it was near a chimney could provide warmth during the cold winter season. ..."

    -"Another alleged station in this system was a home in the Lanesville section of this town. It is located about four miles south of the village center and has been known as the Wanzer Farm......(they were Quakers)"

    -"Fugitives from slavery in the deep South entered New Milford at several places. Some were directed from New York State, directly west of New Milford. It would seem natural that they might have entered through the Town of Sherman, although little has been written or recorded as to that being the case. However, it has been stated that one known station on the system was in Sherman, a short distance north of the center of town in an old colonial residence lying on the westerly side of the present road leading north from the center toward the New York State line or to Gaylordsville. This station was in the Stuart family. The residence is still standing, a landmark and heritage to be preserved. James Stuart was reportedly the agent. It is alleged that there was a small out-building on the premises just north of his dwelling where the escapees would be housed and it would seem likely that some of them would come over the hills to New Milford."

    -"Again, near the village, was the home of Augustine A. Thayer, known to his cronies as "Baccus."....from a New York newspaper....a reward of five hundred dollars offered for the apprehension of two runaway slaves. It was expressed by one of the men present that it would not surprise him, "if they would be found at that moment at Baccus' home."

    -"Many of the fugitives were aided over the hills to Washington, about five or six miles east of New Milford. One of the most ardent supporters of the movement there was Frederick W. Gunn. ...With Mr. Gunn was Daniel Platt, as devoted an agent on the system as there was anywhere. Mr. Platt and his wife rescued and aided many a poor soul fleeing to Canada."

    -"The route continued from Washington north to Litchfield, then on to Torrington, which was the birthplace of John Brown. It is reported that as early as 1837 there was an organization composed of forty members of an antislavery group in that town. Colebrook and Norfolk were the actual jumping off places in Connecticut. From these towns the fugitives crossed the line into Massachusetts, crossed the Housatonic River to Stockbridge, to Pittsfield, into Vermont, to Bennington, Burlington, Rutland, and on into Canada and freedom."


    Underground Railroad notes from various sources:

    When the first pages of my web site were posted, I received an email from someone (I wish that person, if they ever read this, would get back in contact with me) that mentioned that the Christmas shop in the town of Bethlehem was used to hide runaway slaves. If I remember correctly, I was told it was a printing shop and the slaves would spend the night there before moving on to the next station, most likely in Litchfield.

    I heard from a friend that a home north of the rotary in Goshen was a station in the 1800's. I quote from the Goshen history, 1897, page 363: "The store built and occupied by Wadhams and Thompson, and later by Moses Wadhams, was purchased by A. Miles and Sons, who also had a store at West Goshen. Moses W. Gray entered their employ as clerk, in 1841. At this time, Mr. MIles and one son lived at West Goshen, and another son at the Center, with whom Mr. Gray boarded. At his death, Mr. Gray managed the store for about three years, when he purchased a one-half interest and continued to manage it for several years under the firm name of Miles and Gray. He then purchased the interest of his partner and conducted the business alone, the sign over the door bearing the name of M. W. Gray. In 1857, he sold his stock of goods, and, removing to Chicago, enaged in the wholesale grocery business......" -I have talked to a previous landowner, and he told me there is a room in the basement that is undetectable, unless you know it is there. Convienent having a freight business with a hidden room for that special cargo.

    I also heard that a house in South Kent has "extra rooms" on the fireplace foundation in the basement. I know which house, but nothing more than that.

    Another reference I have, and have no idea where it came from, is Blueberry Hill Farm, between Norfolk and Colebrook, on Rock Hall Road. Supposedly there are false panels behind the fireplace, concealing an entrance to another room.

    Mentioned in a Register Citizen article, (I didn't get the date), the Cook homestead on Charles Street in Torrington was used as a station. Runaways were hidden in a section of a dining room closet.

    Also, a Register Citizen article, dated 12-31-94, by Bryan T. Morytko, mentions the following: Harwinton - Rt. 4, the Chiarmonte and the Hinnan houses, the Hinnan home have a secret place in the attic floor, next to a chimney, large enough for three people. Torrington - Torringford Street (very active antislavery society in this area) - three or four houses on this street, including the Florian home, with a secret basement room Winchester - the Silas H. McAlpine home (already mentioned above)


    These are notes about Underground Railroad sites from visitors to my web site. Some are not exactly in northwestern Connecticut, but close enough.
    (Every little piece of the puzzle helps!)

    From Kevin Purcell, of Fairbanks, Alaska: "I can remember two houses in Northern Westchester that were rumored to be stops on the Underground. One is located on Route 138 east of Goldens Bridge, it is a large colonial just before the Increase Miller Elementary School on the north side of the road. The other is on Route 100 south of Somers, New York. It is a larger stone house that had one of the old stone mile markers out front."


    New quote - added August 29, 1999

    -from "Mysteries and Histories of Goshen", June 21, 1938, by Mrs. Lora Ives. Handwritten manuscript

    -"At my father's place, known as Whist Pond Manor......The Manor house was built in 1772 by Nathaniel Parmelee. It contained a secret chamber by the great stone chimney, to which access was easy from the downstairs closet, under the stairs in the front hall, by moving a board in the ceiling, also by a movable panel in a shallow closet upstairs, and by a loose board in the attic floor. The chimney kept the room warm in winter and it is supposed to have been used to secrete English refugees in Colonial days, also for runaway slaves during and before the Civil War. The place called Bald Ledge where the Sterlings lived for several years at the north end of the street, is said to have a similar room."

    Orville Platt was a Senator from the Judea section of Washington, CT. The passages below come from

    An old-fashioned senator: Orville H. Platt, of Connecticut
     By Louis Arthur Coolidge
    The accumulation of unwelcome tasks meant months of dismal drudgery to Senator Platt. Just how great a sacrifice it all was to him may be gleaned from his correspondence. Congress adjourned the last week in June, and he hurried home to Judea for such rest as he could get. Writing from there to John H. Flagg he says:
    My summer seems already broken up. I have to enjoy this place thinking about it when I am far away from it. If there is anything that will bring you health, enjoyment, and happiness it is this Litchfield County life. I have read first and last a good many entertaining disquisitions on where the Garden of Eden was located, but it seems strange that in all the places that have been claimed for it between the North and South Poles, no one has ever said Litchfield County, but I am sure that this was the original paradise. Norfolk is rather on the outer edge of it. Washington, and especially the Judea end of Washington, was right in the centre of the garden. I do not think that the tree of knowledge of good and evil where Eve cut up such a prank at the instance of Old Nick was just hereabouts. I think she must have wandered out of the garden a little to find the tree; for every tree here is pleasant to the sight and good for food.

    But that summer was to be a busy one, with little in it of the peace of Judea. Not only was he burdened with the work of analyzing Cuban finances but he was called upon as usual to bear his part in the Presidential campaign which resulted in the election of McKinley and Roosevelt. When he returned to Washington at the beginning of the short session in December he was weary rather than rested by this summer's absence; but the session upon which he was about to enter proved to be one of the most exhausting, as it was perhaps the most momentous of his entire career.

    Gold

    Daniel, Samuel, and Stephen Gold (now written Gould), brothers, members of a Fairfield family that had been prominent in church and state for several generations, were among the early settlers of the town, though none of their descendants are now found among us. Daniel appears first: he married Grace, daughter of Deacon Stephen Burr, and lived where James Lord now lives. His children, as named in the will of Deacon Burr, were: Abigail, who married Richard Nichols. Esther, who married Nathaniel Northrop. Sarah, who married David Turney. Mary, who married Seth Price; and Elizabeth.

    Samuel Gold settled in Lonetown, and built the house now owned by Seth Todd. He was a soldier in the Revolution, and was wounded at the skirmish in Ridgefield. Some of the officers of Putnam's commnd had their quarters at Mr. Gold's during their encampment in Redding. Their children were: Hezekiah, Daniel, Burr, Aaron, Sarah, Polly, and Grace. Stephen Gold settled on the farm later owned by Timothy Platt in Lonetown. He is called captain in the records. He did not long remian a resident of Redding, but returned, it is said to Greenfield.

    la 1707 two persons came into New Milford.

    In 1712 there were here 12 families or between 60 and
    70 persons. A census, taken in 1756, reports 1137 in the
    town ; another taken in 1774, reported 2776, while in
    1800, after pans of the town had been ceded to Brookfleld
    and Washington, the population was 3198. The census of
    of 1870, gives the population of the present New Milford,
    as 3588, while Bridgev/ater, formerly a part of this town,
    has 877 inhabitants.

    greens annual register

     

    Much of this line is pretty well documented. However, Amos has been the brick wall preventing a connection to the earliest Northrop/ups. ,

    In the published Northrup/ Northrop genealogy, neither Amos Northrop/up's nor Rachel Ives' parents are documented. I believe I've tracked down Rachel, but Amos is still a mystery. Regardless of the location or spelling almost all of these Northrops are descended from Joseph Northrup of Milford, CT. Here are a few facts, speculations and clues to help pin them down..What we know about Amos Northrop/Northrup
    Amos was probably born in Eastern New York or the Western half of Connecticut -- an area with many Northrops. He spent a most of his life in Kent and adjoining Warren & Washington, CT. There is no mention of his early life or profession.

    Baldwin, Enos 81

    • Marriage: Northrup, Elizabeth 81

    bullet   Another name for Enos was Amos.81

    Enos married Elizabeth Northrup, daughter of Phineas Northrup and Elizabeth Brinsmade.81 (Elizabeth Northrup was born on 17 Jan 1732/33 in Milford, New Haven Co, CT 81.)

     

     

    The death record of Washington CT has his birth as Kent and occupation Laborer. There is a conflict in his age at death 69 in Washington, but by the time he was buried in Warren Cemetery he was ten years older! age 79.

    Thanks to the Town Clerks office at Washington!

    I was able to confirm Amos Death and burial with the Warren Town Clerk's Office (Thanks for your wonderful assistance!).

    "I found a listing in a notebook refering to a sexton's book that lists his burial on May 18, 1855, age 79.  That is all the information listed in the book." This gives Amos a birthdate of around 1776 !! a new date in all the research.

    The sextons book is by F. B. Taylor, Warren and refers to burials from 1847-1869.  I believe he was the Sexton or Clerk for the Warren Congregational Church.

    'The Church of Christ was established in May 1750 as, "The East Greenwich Society of Kent" by division of "The First Society." Since then the church has been known as "The Congregational Society of Warren", "The First Ecclesiastical Society of Warren", The First Congregational Church of Warren", and in 1941, when the Society and the Church incorporated, it became known as "The Warren Congregational Church, Incorporated." In the National Historic Register, the Church is known as "The Warren Congregational Church." Records include baptism and marriage records.'

    The Washington Town clerk also provided this transcription (made in 1915?) of Northrops in Washington.

    (Rev. Daniel Brinsmade was of Judea Parish, Rev. Hart Talcott ordained 1817 of Warren)

    The Northrop name does not appear in any of the original divisions of Kent.The earliest Northrop I find in Thomas Grant Northrop son of Amos who went to Yale.

    [His brother, 27. Amos, b. Oct. 11, 1772. appears to have life his entire life in New Milford. m. Hannah ELDERKIN. Thomas' uncle, David (22. David, b. July 27, 1746. .) was married to Rachel Grant sister to Anne, wife of Amos Northrop 3d but all children were born in NewMilford.]

    No record of Northrops as members of the church in Kent although several neighbors appear. Atwater History of Kent Perhaps they were associated with another Parish -- especially if they were closer to an adjacent parish or had a family connection to another parish.

    Perhaps the Northrops stayed in the same area from the earliest census. I thought perhaps it was the Woodville section from names on some of the maps (NE of Washington by Mt. Tom), but perhaps they were in the corner where Kent, Warren and Washington meet.

    West of Litchfield. Warren, formerly a part of Kent, was settled about 1737. The parish of East Greenwich was organized in 1750. In 1786, a town was incorporated and named for a Massachusetts man, Gen. Joseph Warren, the Revolutionary hero, who lost his life at Bunker Hill. The town consists of a high plateau, bordered on the south by Lake Waramaug.

    THE tract now comprising the towns of Kent and Warren was sold at auction at the court house in Windham, in March, 1738. The settlernent commenced the same year.The principal settlers were from Colchester, Fairfield and Norwalk The first minister was the Rev. Cyrus Marsh, ordained in May, 1741.

    Kent

    the Moravian church or mission house was standing 30 or 40 years since, near the house of Mr. Raymond, by the Episcopal church. The Moravians left this place about half a century since. The Scatacook tribe, for whose benefit this mission was established, occupied the interval on the west side of the river for about three miles.

    It may be that this earlier mission set the stage for the Mission School in nearby Cornwall.

    Warren

    The agricultural productions are grass and some grain. Butter and cheese are made, and beef and pork raised by the inhabitants. The town is watered by the Shepaug, a branch of the Housatonic. Raumaug pond, a considerable body of water, is situated partly in this town, and partly in Washington. The population of the town in 1810 was 1,096; in 1830 it was reduced to 986.

    The only hard facts - the A Judd Northrup genealogy:

    • The genealogy has some known errors and omissions especially with some of the families on the CT/NY border. Some family lines have been merged and some dates inaccurate. Connection of Amos Alvin and Gerrit is supported, Rachel as wife highly probable. Questions or possible errors: location of Alvin's 's birth. supported as NY but not (yet?) supported as Chatham; year of Amos birth may be 1780 (census) rather than 1778; location of Gerrit's birth CT not NY (census), Rachel's birth year may be 1780 rather than 1775.

    ...and the census listings for Amos and descendants (details below):

    • The census listings have errors in spelling and may reflect omissions or other errors as well.
    • It is quite possible that Amos and/or his parents moved from Milford, Ridgefield / South Salem, Fairfield / Wilton / Redding to Kent. We know his son, Alvin, moved closer to the coast when he and Sarah Wakeman Alvord Northrop changed their residence to Westport.We don't know if this was a return to known Northrop family connections. It appears to be a return to family connections for Sarah Wakeman Alvord.

    The Amos Questions:

    • Who were Amos' parents?
    • Where was Amos born?
    • Was Amos in Kent area before he married Rachel?
    • Where was Amos from birth to 1800?
    • Where was Amos and family in 1810 census?
    • Who is the extra female in the 1820 census?
    • Did Amos have a second or third marriage? Susan Chaugum? Sarah Osborn?
    • Was Amos' family,like the David Alvord Family from the Fairfield Redding area?

    While there are, so far, no traceable connections, there are interesting correlations with:

    Betts and Jelliff families -- possibly through Lewis Northrop/up.

    • William was in the carpentry business with Francis Jelliff (Southport, CT) and Betts and Northrop ran a carpentry business in Georgetown (Redding / Weston line). Betts and Jelliff families are related. see Jelliff page. There are marriages between Northrops and Betts (Ridgefield Norwalk area).
    • The same collection of names appears together in Ridgefield, Kent area and Lanesboro, MA

    Some kind of Elmore connection --

    Some kind of source for William, George and Francis Names in family or friends

    Some kind of source for Fenn middle name for William

    Some means to meet Ives family and Rachel of Wallingford/Cheshire

    • Lived Close to Wallingford? New Haven, Durham, Woodbridge, Woodbury
    • The Ives had connections in New Haven, Wallingford, Cheshire, and later Cornwall and Barkhamsted CT area; no connections in the upper Hudson area of NY near Chatham and no very early connections to Fairfield.
    • Religious or other connection?

    Northrop, Ives and Alvord connections may all be in one location

    • Plymouth is a location where Ives some Northrops and Alvords were in the same location. Many in Thomaston, Watertown, Waterbury, Litchfield as well.
    • Their co-location may be due to growing manufacturing concerns. Torrington, Hitchcocksville and Plymouth.erea cradles of innovation and industry from about 1790 to 1850. Industries include Chair making , Carriage making and clock making..

    Family Naming conventions don't seem consistent

    • Male First name sometimes from GGF First Name
    • Male Middle from Father's Father's Mother's maiden name
    • later generations Eldest male gets mother's maiden as middle, eldest female gets father's mother's maiden name.

    The "family sticks together" speculation

    In the absence of more definitive information, I've reviewed possible neighbors in the census (where available). In census lists that are not alphabetical, I speculate name sequence reflects physical order of homes. Below are the names I watched for in the review.

    The table lists the results as likely extended family connections. I speculate the earlier data is more likely to be significant. The years are links to images of the census pages.

    With the inaccuracies of early maps, it's difficult to tell the exact borders of the older, larger, Litchfield. It may have encompassed as much as with area of green above -- parts of Plymouth, Washington, Kent and Warren. Some of what appears to be a move by Gerrit, may have actually been a change in the town borders.

    A the Torrington, Hitchcocksville, Winchester, Plymouth area is a nexus of family names - references to Ives, Alvords, Northrops, Fenns and some others. . The region, with it's favorable water power, was a cradle of innovation and industry from about 1790 to 1850. It included Chair making, Carriage making and Clock-making -- all of which may have family connections.

    Chairs Alvord/Alford The famous Hitchcock chairs were manufactured in Riverton/ Hitchcockville. Jesse Ives was a Riverton/Hitchcocksville Tavern Owner and postmaster across from the Hitchcock chair factory. His connection is more remote - he and Rachel may share a GG grandfather (Joseph).

    An interesting Ives connection -- Jesse Ives wrote the obituary for one of the Barkhamsed lighthouse tribe. Amos second or third wife was from this tribe. Barkhamsted tribe -- one of Chaugum girls marries John Elwell (b. 1815) may have been Amos neighbor???

    Carriages Alvord Sarah's brother Nelson ends up manufacturing carriages in Torrington -- apparently quite a successful business.

    Clocks Ives Have yet to find connection for clockmaker Ives to Rachel.

      1. Has No Children Amos Frisbie NORTHROP b: 4 JAN 1799 in Middleton, Rutland, VT
        Sources:
        1. Text: The evidence that Asahel Dutton and Sarah Frisbie were the parents of Asahel E. Dutton is circumstantial, but highly pursuasive:
          1.Asahel and Sarah's birth dates and marriage date are appropriate for them being the parents of the younger Asahel.
          2. The fact that both men had the same name is an obvious clue.
          3. The younger Asahel named one of his sons James Frisbie Dutton. James Frisbie was the name of one of Sarah's brothers.
          4. James Frisbie shared a claim to land in Bradford county, Pennsylvania with Solomon Moss, who was the father-in-law of the younger Asahel Dutton.
          5. The families of both the suspected parents and Asahel E. Dutton all moved to Poultney, VT. Sarah Frisbie and 4 of her brothers moved to the Poultney area when the younger Asahel was a young child. Further, the sister of the elder Asahel, Lois Dutton, moved to Poultney. The first docuement event involving the younger Asahel was his moving from Poultney in 1800.

    REVOLUTION 1781 Wickipedia
    Litchfield area     1784 -1834

    Unlike many Connecticut towns, Litchfield prospered during the Revolution. While Connecticut's coastal and river towns were under constant attack by British forces, and while New York City was occupied by the British, Litchfield became a major "safe town" of the Continental forces. The main roads from Hartford and Southern Connecticut to the Hudson Valley ran through Litchfield and most of the provisions and munitions for the Continental Army beyond the Hudson followed this route. Litchfield became a chief depot for military stores and a safe place to jail Loyalist prisoners.

    The fifty years between 1784 and 1834 are known as Litchfield's "Golden Age". During these years, the town was an active, growing urban center. Local merchants made fortunes in the China trade, small industries were developed, and by 1810 the central village contained 125 houses, shops and public buildings. The town had an active artisan community with goldsmiths, carpenters, hatters, carriage makers, joiners, cabinet makers, saddlers, blacksmiths, potters and other craftsmen all located within the central village.

    from http://www.litchfieldct.com/twn/history.html

    The iron works thrived in the mid-1800s, but the ore petered out.Dairy farming was the principal occupation in Kent from the early 1800s until the 1950s

    Transportation     ~ 1790 -1802 Amos Bronson's second son, Noah Miles, was a man of strong mind and of a public spirit. He built the turnpike road along the banks of the Naugatuck to Salem Bridge in Waterbury, connecting there with the turnpike road to New Haven and with the road to Derby Landing (prob started around 1790) . The building of this road through its length was thought an undertaking of no ordinary kind in those days. It was not completed until 1802. Before this time in passing from Jericho to Waterbury, after the Revolution, one was obliged to ford the stream four or five times and remove from twenty-five to thirty sets of bars.
