Several of these columns were for special counts, and not to be included in the aggregate total. Doing so would have resulted in counting some individuals twice. Census takers were asked to use double lines, red ink or some other method of distinguishing these columns so that double counting would not occur. For example, the count of free white males between 16 and 18 was a special count, because these individuals were also supposed to be tabulated in the column for free white males of age 16 and under 26. The other special counts were foreigners not naturalized, persons engaged in agriculture, persons engaged in commerce, and persons engaged in manufacture.

Census takers were also instructed to count each individual in only one of the occupational columns. For example, if an individual was engaged in agriculture, commerce, and manufacture, the census taker had to judge which one the individual was primarily engaged i

"Fairweather Purchase"

 

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 of Fairfleld." That 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.

It is around this time that the Gunnery, also in Washington, holds a summer camp session. I have wondered whether it was just a question of family connection or whether children growing up in villages or cities were sent to spend time on a farm.

    Perhaps the Northrop Warren location was near the road to Milton? Probably not too far from Warren-Litchfield Road. It looks as if many locations along the Shepaug were flooded when the river was dammed further down in Waterbury.

    Milton History
    November 27, 2012 at 9:10 pm · Filed under History The area now known as Milton was called West Farms. It was settled and developed because of its attractive potential for water power development. Among the first settlers, who arrived before 1740, were Justus Seelye, David Welch and Jeremiah Griswold from New Milford. Welch engaged in the iron business as a merchant, buying and selling ore mined in northwestern Connecticut. One of the men he dealt with was Ethan Allen, the Revolutionary War hero. Welch also brought ore to Milton and processed it in a puddling furnace located north on Shearshop Road behind his house.[5] Griswold, a builder, constructed the dam at Sawmill Road, which formed Milton Pond, and also the second David Welch House. Others took advantage of the waterpower available from the Shepaug River at several sites. In the district the Seelye Sawmill, Pratt Nail Forge, and Hutchinson Cider mill were located near the dam at Milton Pond. The community became a religious and political entity through the usual course of pleading hardship in reaching the church at Litchfield Center in bad weather. Permission to hold services at Milton during winter months was requested in 1768. The Third Ecclesiastical Society of Litchfield built the meetinghouse on the Common in 1791. Four years later the General Assembly granted a petition for establishment of the independent Milton parish. Famous and near famous people associated with the Milton Center Historic District included Lt. John Griswold, son of Jeremiah Griswold. John Griswold, who lived on Sawmill Road south of the district, was an early inventor of an ironclad naval vessel. He tested a model of his armored vessel on Milton Pond early in the 19th century. Oliver Dickinson, joiner/architect of Trinity Church, was the father of Anson Dickinson, nationally known painter of miniatures. The Welch family continued prominent in the district’s affairs. David’s son, John, became an Episcopalian and gave the land on which Trinity Church stands, Hugh Welch, grandson of David Welch, built the Greek Revival house, the last architecturally significant house to be built in the district, after he achieved success as a banker. The district’s years of growth and prosperity coincided with the period when waterpower was important as a source of energy for industry. Activity was strong until about the middle of the 19th century, when the advent of steam and railroads brought decline to industry based on waterpower. In the district no developments succeeded waterpower. The railroad did not come to Milton; there were no other natural resources to exploit; it was not a crossroads, county seat, or trading center. Industry faded away and was not replaced by other activity. Now it takes searching to find factory foundations and dam abutments. Many of the civil, domestic, and religious structures, however, have survived and continue to tell their story of the past. The Milton Center Historic District enjoys a rural setting and is surrounded by farmland and woodland. Indeed, the Jeremiah Griswold (Second David Welch) House is set on a 90-acre farm. Nevertheless, the significance of the Milton Center Historic District does not relate to its rural setting but derives from its industrial development. The waterpower potential of the Shepaug River was the attraction that drew the early settlers to Milton Center and the development of the waterpower was the driving force in the history of the village. While the mills and factories that used the waterpower have now disappeared, the stream itself runs through the district as it always has, and foundations, stone walls, and remnants of the waterpower system clearly indicate the industrial past. The community of houses, churches, schools, and village hall that was built as a necessary complement to the industry is substantially intact, giving an excellent understanding of the appearance and function of the Milton Center Historic District at the time of its 19th-century industrial eminence.

    The Fair Haven section of New Haven
    remained unsettled for the most part until around 1790-92 when a bridge was built over the Quinnipiac. Oystering and Shipping were the primary industries until the 1850s.

    City Point Mission

       The history of one of City Point's landmarks, the former Howard Avenue Methodist Church building, now home of New Light Holy Church, began in 1871 as Sunday school lessons conducted by Mrs. Gilbert Eaton in her home on South Water St. The Eaton's initially had relocated from Long Island to Second Street in City Point, but soon moved to South Water Street. According to local legend this was at No. 47-49 South Water St., and some residents continued to call this house the former "sailors' mission" well into the 20th century. City directories confirm that one of the several City Point Eaton families lived at 47-49 S. Water in the 1860s-70s. Also, according to local legend and parish archives, the first services were held in a newly-constructed oyster shop directly across the street, owned by the Thomas Oyster Co. (the building now relocated to Mystic Seaport museum). By 1872 the group called itself "The Oyster Point Mission", and shortly thereafter "The City Point Mission".

      In the City Directory of  1875 the City Point [Methodist Episcopal] Mission on S. Water St. is listed for the first time. This address likely was the parsonage, because a church building or meeting house was constructed for the congregation by David Shelton in 1875 on a 50' by 300' lot which he had owned since 1872, and which was bounded by Hallock Ave., Sixth St. and Howard Ave. (The corner stone of the present edifice on Howard Ave. at Fourth St.  gives this as the year of the building's construction.)

      On Oct. 19, 1880 David Shelton, for the sum of $1000, sold to the congregation "The Church or meeting House"--but not the land upon which it sat--"with the following Furniture and fixtures therein Viz: One Black Walnut Pulpit, One sofa, Fourteen Chairs, Fifty-nine settees or seats, Ten Double Lamps and about two hundred yards of Carpet on the Floor."  On July 15, 1881 he then sold the congregation the lot at the corner of Fourth St. & Howard Ave. for $600. The 1881 City Directory gives both S. Water St. and Howard Ave. at Fourth St. as the Mission's addresses. This was the year of the building's legendary two to three week move up Howard Ave., during which services purportedly were held while the building temporarily sat in the middle of the avenue. In the 1882 City Directory the name then only appears in the church index as the Howard Avenue Methodist Church at Howard Ave. & Fourth St. (although the street index continues to call it City Point Mission at Howard & Fourth through 1887).


    Howard Ave. Methodist/City Point Mission as it appeared between 1882 and 1890, shortly after the building's relocation to Fourth & Howard

      This new location would have made the church more convenient for all Oyster Point residents, and allowed for the construction of a parsonage in 1882 directly behind the church at No. 75 Fourth St. In 1890 the front section and belfry were added. This entailed moving the building yet again--albeit this time only ten feet back. In 1897 the bell was installed. Due to the many oyster industry employees who once belonged to the parish, it garnered the nickname "The Eel Pot".

      From the 1930s, until the parish merged with Grace Methodist farther up Howard Ave. in 1954 (thereby becoming Wesley Methodist), the church was well-known for its  Sunday oyster suppers held during December.  The oysters were donated each year by the Wedmore Oyster Co. 

      In 1959 the church building was sold to United Pentecostal Church, then Star of Jacob Church. It has been the home of New Light Holy Church since 1973.

    Joseph Fenn was a proprietor of Norwalk, CT. He married Hannah Comstock, daughter of Christopher Comstock. I think he was born c. 1650, I think. Does anyone have any info? I am trying to fill in holes in my tree.

    .

    I have very little solid data for the parentage of my Amos, my ggg grandfather(see bottom of page). I've checked and rechecked the documented Amos Northrops and none of them fit. Amos' branch is "unconnected" in the A. Judd Northrop genealogy with a birth "probably Chatham, NY ~ 1778"( While it's possible he was born in Chatham, NY, there are no direct connections to Northrop families in that part of NY--There are some Northrop to Amenia/Fishkill, NY
    Perhaps he was born in Chatham/Canaan, New Lebanon, while visiting Elisha Alvord In-laws, the Alvords, who had connections to Chatham, CT and David's brother Elisha lived in Canaan (1810 census), adjacent to Chatham. Canaan was reportedly named for settlers arriving from Canaan, CT Cannan, NY was on the Albany-Boston stagecoach route. I understand it was not unusual for the mother to stay with family when she was pregnant -- more commonly her family.).
    A number of the places where Amos lived have numerous connections to the names we see for his daughter-in-law and grandchildren (link to grandchildren) Alvord, Burr, Fenn, Elmore Ives. (some of these names may be from both the Alvord and the Northrop sides (Elmore, Burr, ?)

    . Both my father's parents died young and thus he lost a good deal of family information.

    In addition to family names and census data,there are a few family documents that may offer some other clues.
    1) "a genealogical record" that points to William 1694 of Greefield as an ancestor.
    It is perhaps penned by a generation as early as Sarah Wakeman Alvord, my gg grandmother(d. 1886)After comparing the day books of gg grandfather Alvin (d. 1875), I think the size of the handwriting is too large to be his. Document could also be from a later generation.
    There is also an Ira of Vermont on the sheet -- I become more persuaded that the Ira connection is Ira of New Milford. A nephew?second or third cousin?

    Ira Northrop 1 b. 1 JUN 1799 in Newtown, Fairfield Co., CT 2 s/o Jared Northrop b: 1 MAY 1774 in Newtown & Lucretia Hard d/o Niram Hard  &: Sarah Birdseye Curtiss) b: ABT 1776 in Newtown m. 1 Abigail Joyce b: 1799 in Sherman, CT Married: 24 DEC 1820 1Children
    Has No   Children George R Northrop b: 5 NOV 1822 in CT,
    Has Children Nelson William Northrop b: 19 MAY 1824 in New Milford,
    Has Children Jane A Northrop b: 24 SEP 1825 in New Milford,
    Has No Children Emily M Northrop b: 1828 in CT

    The name Nelson could suggest a connection to Nelson Alvord?
    The name HARD is found in nearby census records for MyAmos.
    The Birdseye Curtiss connection (Elmore Curtiss) (Curtiss Isaiah Northrop) (Thomas Grant Northrop Curtiss)


    2) a list of known family from a second cousin Susan link link2

    3) an Aunt's correspondence referencing the possibility of some scandal or disreputable part of the family's history. She says there is " nothing of which to be ashamed on the Jennings side of the family". Might or might not be a scandal today. Could be anything from
    involvement with abolition and/or the underground railway, connections with the Native American missionary movement in Cornwall, religious dissent, Quaker connection , disgrace of cancer, to murder, theft, suicide.
    I think I may have found a less obvious Northrop scandal!! link

    4) Census lists

    Apparent connections to several Northrop lines leading me to speculate a kissing cousin match along the way. It's also quite possible the connections include multiple marriages, or step-parent relationships. The William1694 and Jeremiah lines seem to have connections to myAmos.

    Besides the direct family connections, the generation of youngsters born 1770-1780, (the decade when myAmos was probably born) were the first to become adults in the new country. The slightly older ones may have shared service during the Revolution. (16 and older were subject to conscription.) Perhaps they shared a more adventurous spirit, more dislocation, directed to exploration, invention & industry than earlier generations and experienced the hardships and deprivations of wartime. "The War of the Revolution impoverished where it did not devastate. For many years there was practically no money." Conditions requiring greater adaptability to make a living -- and a different spirit. " 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."

    Were they Generation "R" (Revolution)?
    They must have known other children of about the same age -- at least in the same town. Although they probably went to different schoolhouses, they would have attended the same churches, been sent to the same merchants, etc. Even from towns that were not adjacent, it is likely that knew of other young people in other partishes even if they did not know them.

    They must have known children who died young, Tory families who moved away, families that moved to Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York and farther west. Were they more adventurous, more independent. Did the revolution make them more self-reliant at an earlier age?

    I've questioned the reasons for Amos (and some usual suspects) to move from place to place. I'm led to believe there's some connection to emerging manufacturing efforts of some sort. There is also a possibility that there were some religious links. LINK

    My current speculation is some kissing cousin link between descendants of William of Greenfield (1694) and descendants of Jeremiah1651-54 with a dash of Samuel 1651.

    With the clues of the "genealogy document", I started with William.

    This is about 1800 but the landscape is probably similar a decade or two earlier

    It is tempting to surmise some connection to Orville Howard Northrop who ends up in the Southport area in the later 1880s


    "380. Orville Howard Northrop; letter from Congregational Church, Wallingford, Conn., Sept, 5, 1884; letter to First Congregational Church, Danbury, Conn., Oct. 16, 1885.
    381. Mrs. Clara LePine (Welby) Northrop, wife of Orville Howard Northrop; letter from Congregational Church, Wallingford, Conn., Sept. 5, 1884; letter to First Congregational Church, Danbury, Conn., Oct. 16, 1885. "

    from The Southport Congregational church, Southport, Connecticut, March 7, 1843-November 30, 1915; an historical sketch, together with the confession, the covenant (1915)

    And it fits in with a family scandal with being in the Josiah Northrop (b. 28 MAY 1759 Ridgefield d. 17 JUL 1797 Ridgefield) with his death "by hanging himself on a tree with a rope ... he being insane".

    However I was unable to find any way this fits with the known facts about Amos. It is also possible he had a connection to the Alvords through Torrington "Occupation: Tinner by trade, well learned in his calling, Thomaston, Connecticut Residence: 1859 Ridgefield Residence: Thomaston, Litchfield Co.

    I have looked for the Fenn (william Fenn) anf francis, frances. Two possibilities Guy B. Fenn b: 7 JAN 1808 in CT and Jane Wakeman b: 18 JUN 1808. with a Daughter, Mabel who is listed as a Doctor.

    It could also be a reference to an early Wakeman

    Approximate 1766 town lines on a 1930 map. The early Fairfield Parish included half of Westport (incl Greens Farms), part of Bridgeport, the majority of Weston and Easton perhaps a half of Redding and perhaps little bits of Trumbull, Wilton and Newtown.
    1830
    The original Fairfield - the northern portion was Greenfield. Later some maps have Weston embracing both Weston and Easton.

    Milford, to the east embraced Orange Woodbridge & Bethany. Later Amity became a society with most of Woodbridge and Bethany.

    Stratford extended up to Newtown.
    Derby (including Ansonia & Derby was an inland port very early.)

    The same families keep marrying each other again and again across many generations. Often family married first and second cousins. link marrying cousins

    Following my "genealogy document" clue, I've started with the William1694 line and looked for "kissing cousins".

    Possible William 1794 descendants as MyAmos' father
    descendants of Lois Northrup 1733 * m. 1 John Northrup Jr. (s/o John and Mary Porter)(Jeremiah line)
    This line is a prime candidate having both William and Jeremiah connections. Peter
    is a prime candidate * the right age for MyAmos father, *census also shows an additional child.

Looks like not mentioned in distribution of estate.

    With some census connections to other Northrop lines, I think it likely that MyAmos is descended from a "Kissing Cousin" match.

    from 1790 census Newtown lots of Northrops
    Litchfield and New Milford show multiple family names.

    These are current town lines. Earlier divisions included broader areas.

    Here is my flight of fantasy:

    Amos was the child of Nehemiah son of William1694 or of Peter grandson of William1694 Probably born in Newtown.

    We don't know if he had an education beyond the local schools or if he went to an academy. We don't know the profession or have information on any apprenticeships.

    It looks like he ended up in some profession associated with the iron industry or mills (of some variety) adjacent to one of several industrial areas in Macedonia, Kent, Woodville, Washington or something in Woodbury.

    Several points would support Nehemiah as his father:

    1. Nehemiah's wife, Anna Clark and her family have connections to Woodbury - later Washington, ct
    2. Anna's Neice Lois Prindle (dau of Lois) m. David Lambert (s/o David Lambert & Martha Northrop - a descendant is connected to Southport Northrops
    3. Anna Clark's cousin Anna/Hannah Clark of Judea m. Daniel Fenn in Washington.
    4. Nehemiah was b. Greenfild, appears to be in Newtown most of 1760-1782. son caleb born Galway Saratoga in 1763. Census 1790& 1800 in Newtown, 1810 galway Amos 1810 ? Galway or Woodbridge, Derby?. 1820 galway. I have not been able to find any Revolutionary service. as early as 1787 ballston spa had a hotel to accomodate visitors. 1803 the large sans souci hootel was builtThe Erie Canal is famous in song and story. Proposed in 1808 and completed in 1825, the canal links the waters of Lake Erie in the west to the Hudson River in the east. An engineering marvel when it was built, some called it the Eighth Wonder of the World. (ground was broken in 1817. http://www.eriecanal.org/ not authorized til 1817 http://ballstonhistory.angelfire.com/

    The Northrops at least William, Jeremiah and Samuel purchased, were willed or granted property (Maybe some of it Fairweather "purchase") around Washington, Warren, Roxbury, Bethlehem that was not settled in their lifetime. The property descended through several branches of the family. After the Revolution, some of the younger Northrops (those who did not expect to inherit a good estate or maybe those who were interested in mills, manufacturing etc.) took up residence yielding a mix of Northrop young people. Some moved on to teaching or farming and some moved around according to the opportunities for mills, mining, ironworks or manufacturing. I think MyAmos moved around in this way - Kent (probably Macedonia area) near the Ironworks, Woodville (Washington /Kent border)by Mills, ironworks and maybe New Preston by Mills & Ironworks or Torrington by mills and manufacturing. (The Torrington location may be My Amos or possibly a son of MyAmos. Either may also be the Amos who married Susan Chauggum descendant of the "Barkhamsted Lighthouse") making a connection to Barkhamsted. If so I would imagine Amos would have been aquainted with Jesse Ives who ran the tavern.

    The Barkhamsted Lighthouse was between Pleasant Valley and Riverton now part of a Park.

    David Alvord (son of John & Sarah Wakeman of Greens Farms)& wife Abigail Jennings move to Litchfield. The 1790 Litchfield census shows "David Alverd" 10300 between to Chamberlain & Bacon, Series: M637  Roll: 1  Page: 363 also 1790 Elisha "Alverd" Series: M637  Roll: 1  Page: 365 [The 1790 Litchfield census included many other surrounding towns . (Although not far from Rev. Hezekiah GOLD (II)1731 Cornwall, CT minister of Cornwall 1754-86 d.29 MAY 1791 & wife Elizabeth WAKEMAN1745 perhaps a second or third cousin and also from Westport, I haven't found any indication of the Alvords in Cornwall at he time. There are Millards in Cornwall and later Cornwall connection may be through that branch. This is also the Rev Hezekiah Gold grandfather to the Harriet Gold who married a Cherokee student of Cornwall Mission School (Rev Gold)> Thomas Ruggles Gold1733>Harriet Ruggles Gold m. Elias Boudinot in Cornwall 1826

    David Alvord probably remains in the area for the rest of his life. All his children are reported to have been born in Kent, but I can't find him in census records. We don't know his profession, but there is a tradition of Shoe and Bootmaking in his line. His brother John manufactured boots & Shoes and employed other workmen in the northern part of Greenfield parish (Redding? Georgetown? Easton? Weston?) wife Elizabeth Bulkley "His wife was a remarkable woman for those days. She was passionatly fond of learning and embraced every opportunity to learn the news of the day. So eager was she, that frequently, after receiving the weekily newspaper, she would sit up almost the entire night to read." There appears to be some Weston connection was there a connection to the William Wakeman (underground railroad conductor) with the Alvords??? Right now these are only speculations...perhaps .. I've only found a census reference in 1790 Litchfield along with David's brother Elisha.

Taylor, Warren Sexton 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"

    Warren
    This area was settled in 1737 as part of the Town of Kent. A separate ecclesiastical society called the Society of East Greenwich, established in 1750, led to the founding of a church in 1756 and a separate town in 1786. It was named in honor of General Joseph Warren, hero of the Revolutionary War, who was slain in the battle of Bunker Hill.
    In the first century and a half of its life, Warren not only sent forty-three of its men into that war but later, even though engaged mainly in farming, the Town became known as an educational center. Five private schools and academies produced fifteen ministers and educators. Among them were Charles G. Finney, revivalist and president of Oberlin College 1851-1866, and Julian M. Sturtevant, minister and president of Illinois College 1844-1876.
    During a half century commencing in 1772, more than 2837 Warren emigrants took part in settling new territories to the north and west.

    b. ~1766

    Amos Northrop came to
    Fairfield, from Fairfield, Connecticut,
    in 1792, and located where Thomas
    Hale now resides. Here he resided
    until his death, in 1849, aged eightythree years. During the war of 1812, he started to market, at Plattsburg, with a load of oats, and upon his arrival there was pressed into the service of the United States, and sent with his team to Sackett’s Harbor, to transport soldiers and supplies, and was retained from home from January until March. During a portion of this time he was obliged to camp in the forest with no protection from the weather, and thereby had his feet frozen so badly that a portion of the right foot had to be amputated. He reared a family of four sons and three daughters, only one of whom, Horation, residing at East Fairfield, is living. Moved after 1788 other residents Thomas Northrup, Abram Northrup Thomas Northrup, from Sherman, Conn., came to the forests of Fairfield in 1790, about age 24 and settled upon a farm of 140 acres which he had purchased from one of his brothers, an original proprietors of the town, paying therefore $100.00. Upon this he made a small clearing, planted some corn, and cut some hay from a beaver meadow, and also erected a small log cabin, then returned to Connecticut. In the following spring he started for his new home with a yoke of oxen and one horse hitched to a heavy sled, upon which was placed his household effects and provisions for his family, consisting of his wife and three children. After a long and tedious journey, he arrived here and commenced his useful life, remaining in this town until his death. He had a family of four sons and seven daughters, only one of whom, Harmon Northrop, is now living, at the age of eighty-seven years. Harmon has been a deacon of the Congregational church, to which he has been a pillar for the past fifty years. He has held nearly all the
    offices in the gift of the town, and has also held the office of county
    commissioner four years, and was president of the Franklin County Agricultural Society three years. The great regard felt for his opinion and
    advice is attested by the fact that he has assisted in the settlement of, or
    settled independently, sixty-one estates. 1791, at the home of Joseph Wheeler who was chosen Moderator and town treasurer. Edmund Town was chosen town clerk, Levi Wakeman, Salmon Wheeler, Abram
    Northrup and David Hoit, Listers; and Nathan Lobdell,
    John Leach, Sr., was born as New Fairfield, Connecticut, in 1735, and came to Fairfield, Vermont, in 1789, locating in the southern part of the town. He reared a family of fourteen children, all but two of whom settled in the town, and died in 1811. John Leach, Jr., born at New Fairfield, in 1761, came here in 1788, made some improvements on a farm, and returned to Fairfield, Connecticut. In the spring of 1789, he returned, bringing his wife and two children, and located permanently upon the farm now owned by Mr. Oliver, on road 21

    Cousin or Uncle Isaiah connections - Huntington 1790 census, Monroe, Newtown Perinton Fairport Monroe County NY, military Lanesboro, MA moved back and forth between NY and Monroe C. More pure speculation Isaiah has son Elijah -- perhaps the one in Washington who would have grown up with William 1694's grandchildren. Elijah's move to Mass because of porter/northrop connections and sells/rent/ passes on house to Amos Northrop??? Elijah and Amos would have been about the same age. I'm now thinking the connection among the Washington, CT Northrops/Northrups is through other branches of the family.

    Ammi Phillips
     

    (b Colebrook, CT, 24 April 1788; d Curtisville, MA, 11 July 1865). 

    American painter. Apparently self-taught, he began his prolific and successful career as a portrait painter c. 1811. During his lifetime, he moved several times across the borders of New York, western Connecticut and Massachusetts in search of commissions. Like many of the itinerant artists of the 19th century, he struggled to achieve pictorial solutions and a distinctive style, yet he developed so dramatically that historians originally classified his paintings as the work of two different artists: ‘The Border Limner’ and ‘The Kent Limner’. The earliest works, from his ‘Border’ period (c. 1812–19), are marked by simple forms, shaded outlines and soft, pastel colours. They include ambitious full-length portraits (e.g. Harriet Leavensc. 1815; Cambridge, MA, Fogg) as well as three-quarter and bust-length examples (Dr Russell Dorrc. 1814–15; Williamsburg, VA, Rockefeller Flk A. Col.). In the 1820s he experimented with techniques and formats, developing an attention to detail and naturalism that suggests the influence of Albany portrait painter Ezra Ames. By the 1830s, the decade of his ‘Kent’ portraits, his compositions present his sitters as large, stylized shapes that nearly fill the canvas, while his use of rich, saturated colours creates striking contrasts of light and dark. Typically in this decade, his female sitters are shown leaning forward while male sitters sit upright with one hand draped over a chairback. Among his most appealing and successful works are portraits of children from this period. Blond Boy with Primer, Peach and Dog(c. 1838) exemplifies the bold simplicity of his compositions and the dramatic success of his designs. After the 1840s he returned to more conventional poses, and by the late 1850s his work showed the influence of photography. He continued to work at least until 1862, the year of his last dated paintings.

    Probably an 1830s work. Not sure if this Lewis is any relation. It's possible this is Northrop, Lewis ABT 1776 Newtown, CT & Betty Northrop d/o William 1694, but the look a bit younger than their 50s.

    193 Seymour Road B Northrop home

    The house faces south at the corner of Bethmour Road. There is a millpond with a dam constructed of rubble with a concrete cap to the rear.

    193 Seymour Road is a small Cape built about 1840. The original three-bay main block (27' x 33') has an original recessed wing on the north elevation and an open porch on the south. Both the wing and the main block have center chimneys and both slopes of the main roof display three small gabled dormers. The facade new displays three windows but may have once contained a central doorway. The entrance is now on the east (rear) elevation and sheltered by a hipped roof porch.

    This house was built about 1840 by the Northrop family who were in the lumber business and maintained a sawmill on the property. The Northops were an old settler family in Woodbridge. Job Northrop (1731-1813), the first of the line to settle here, was a great-grandson of the Joseph Northrup who emigrated from. England with the Davenport-Eaton company that settled New Haven. This house was probably built by Bela Northrop, the son of Jedediah, and served as a miller's house for at least the rest of the nineteenth century. The house and the mill to the rear (no longer extant) passed to Belas's son, Allen Northrop (b. 1813), who was recorded in the 1870 federal census as living here with his wife (?) Jane and son, Frank G. Frank, who then was an eighteen-year old blacksmith apprentice, succeeded his father in the business, according to the history of the town written by the Reverend S. P.

    Northrops are on the northern border wod what is now woodbridge -- almost southern bethany on the north west side probably bordering Seymour. Both Match factories, Grist Mill and Cider Mill are on Bladen's Brook. M Northrop (1868) is on the woodbridge bethany line, but just about the middle east to west. There are more mills further south where it is called the Wopowaug River Saw, Grist, Cier and Turning Mill.. SE of the town there was a Whetstone Quarry. The West River, close to the Old Litchfield turnpike (ironicalyy on the east side of woodbridge) has some mills as well

    BUSINESS ENTERPRISES IN HUMPHREYSVILLE.

    In May, 1822, the Humphreysville Manufacturing Company was re-organized with $50,000 capital, and the General Humphreys mill property purchased by it; John H. De Forest being president, and J. Fisher Learning, secretary.

    Among the persons induced by General Humphreys to come to America was Thomas Gilyard, son of Edmund and Nancy Gilyard, born in Leeds, England, March 20, 1786, who came to New York in the " Commerce" in the summer of 1807, having had a very fine passage of forty-five days. He immediately commenced work for General Humphreys's Company and continued until March 28, 1810, in the manufacture of cloths, when he learned and engaged in the making of stockings, a new department in the mills. Mr. Gilyard was an active man in the Methodist Church, and his descendants still reside in the community. While General Humphreys was organizing his company of young operatives in the factory, and drilling them in soldierly tactics for their entertainment and elevation, Lady Humphreys, wife of the General, made an elegant silk flag, beautifully embroidered by herself, for the company, and which is still preserved, with its inscription, as follows :

    " Humphreysville, Jam Nova Progenes, Perseverando Pacta Semper Servanda, MDCCCX."

    This shows that the enterprise had attained to good working order and numbers at that, date, 1810, and from that time until 1814 the village was lively and prosperous, a variety of manufacturing enterprises being conducted in the village and its vicinity on Little river and Bladen's brook. After the date mentioned the influx of foreign goods almost put an end to American manufacturing, and Humphreysville suffered with all other places, but upon the organization of the new company in 1822, it took a fresh start and made slow but steady progress until 1837, when political times severely affected the whole country, or a crisis in the country affected politics. The new company rebuilt the dam, widened the water-course to the mill, and constructed the machinery into a cotton mill, by which name it was known many years. There was then one store in the valley and one on the hill near the Episcopal Church. Mr. De Forest lived at first in the Roth house, on the west side of Main street, opposite Pearl, until he built the house now occupied by Raymond French, Esq., in which he resided until his death.

    The shop in the fork of the road near the M. E. Church was built in 1825 by Newel Johnson ; Isaac Kinney and Jesse Smith owning a portion of the building, which was used as a carpenter and cabinet shop.

    In 1828 Samuel R. Hickox, a local preacher from Southbury, settled in the place and took charge of the grist-mill near the Falls. About this time Judson English came from Hotchkisstown, now Westville, and bought the tannery on the premises now owned by Arthur Rider, previously run by Mr. Benham; the bark-mill being further south on the brook just below the railroad crossing. About ten years later Mr. English sold this property to George Kirtland and removed to Great Hill.

    In 1830 Leverett Pritchard was living on the knoll opposite the saw-mill still standing near the upper end of Maple street; having previous to this resided in the house in the rear of Doct. J. Kendall's.

    Chester Jones, a paper-maker, built the north " Kirtland house" and kept a store in it. He afterward removed to Ohio, returning in a year or two, and was for several years superintendent of the Humphreysville Manufacturing Company's paper mill, residing in the house close by it. His wife was the daughter of Dea. Bradford Steele. He afterwards removed to Erie, Penn., where he died. Ezekiel Gilbert, having kept store for a time at Squantuck, came to Humphreysville about this time and kept the tavern on Broad street nearly two years, when he built the store now occupied by H. W. Randall.

    Such were the beginnings of the enterprises in the village of Humphreysville, a place that is now alive with machinery and manufacturing ability and appliances, and is capable of becoming much greater than it now is by the development of its water-powers.

    One- hundred years of manufacturing enterprises have made great changes in the place, but not as many as have been made in Birmingham and Ansonia in fifty years.

    THE COTTON MILL.

    The Humphreysville Manufacturing Company, organized in 1810, produced first woolen cloths, then cotton goods, and in 1831 commenced making paper, first with four employes, but increased the number within a month to sixteen. In 1843 this paper-mill passed into the hands of Hodge & Company; the firm consisting of G. L. Hodge, S. Y. Beach and Samuel Roselle; and in 1845 William Buffum purchased the cotton mill and continued its proprietor a few months. In 1850 Sharon Y. Beach bought the claims of the other two proprietors in the paper-mill and removed it to Blue street, where it still remains.

    Great have been the changes between that day and the present. The whole territory is filled with buildings and immense manufacturing establishments, a full account of which may be found in Mr. Wm. C. Sharpe's " History of Seymour and Vicinity," a book which is of great value because of the many facts collected and recorded in it. Every family in the town should carefully preserve a copy of it.

    In 1851 the capital stock of the Humphreysville Manufacturing Company was estimated at $300,000, and the estimate approved by a committee of the Legislature. In 1859 the stock was reduced to $150,000 by the distribution of property to the stockholders.

    The Eagle Manufacturing Company was organized June 27, 1850, with a stock of $50,000, for the manufacture of silk goods, wool and cotton; George Rice being the first president. In 1852 the stock was increased to $100,000; George F. De Forest, president. In 1855 George P. Shelton was president and Harrison Tomlinson, secretary.

    In 1852 George P. Shelton, Raymond French, Philo Holbrook, Henry S. Mygatt, Sheldon Kinney, George F. De Forest, Harrison Tomlinson, John W. Dwight, John Clark and Sylvester Smith were incorporated under the title of the Seymour Savings Bank.

    The Union Mercantile Company was established in 1852 with a capital of #4,000. B. W. Smith was the first president, and John J. Rider the second. The store was in the build

    Samuel (3), son of Lieutenant Samuel (2) Gunn, was born in Milford in 1740, died in Washington, January 7, 1782. He settled at Woodbury, Connecticut. He married Phebe Northrop, born April, 1735, a descendant of Joseph Northrop, a founder of Milford. Among their children was John Northrop, mentioned below.
    (VI) John Northrop, son of Samuel (3) Gunn, was born at Milford, June 5, 1772, died in Washington, October 3, 1826. He was a farmer, but for many years held and discharged the duties of deputy sheriff, an office then held in much honor, which he so acceptably filled that he became widely known and still lives in local tradition as "Sheriff" Gunn. mentioned below.
    (VII) Frederick W'ilIiam, son of John Northrop Gunn, was born at Washington, formerly Woodbury, Connecticut. October 4, 1818, died August "19, 1881. At the age of thirteen he began to attend a school in Cornwall kept by Rev. William Andrews. He prepared for college in 1831-32 at Judea Academy, then taught by Rev. Watson Andrews, son of Rev. William Andrews, and he .graduated from Yale College in the class of 1837. He taught in the academy at New Preston during the winters of 1837-38 ; in the Judea Academy, 1839-43 ; in the New Preston Academy, 1845-47 : in Towanda, Pennsylvania, 1847-48-49. He established the famous pri

    Abel, brother to Lois is another possibility to check

     


    Peter was the eldest (known) son of John Northrop, Jr.and Lois Northrop. He was born 3 JUL 1754 and raised in Newtown. Both his father and grandfather were Town Clerks for Newtown do he must have been close to the center of public interests throughout his childhood. Newtown and parts of his own family held differing views on separation from England. A key point of the Revolution occurred just as he was coming of age -- 21 on July 3, 1775.

    There are no census records to help us place him until 1790 when he is on his own in Newtown. My Amos would have been about 12 years old.

    Woodbridge has always been a farming town and is still largely such. Its -principal product is milk,which goes to the New Haven market. But, like many another Yankee community, she has had variousmanufacturing enterprises of longer or shorter life.
    PAGE TWENTY

    One of the earliest grist mills inNew Haven County was located atSperry's Falls, a reminder of whichexists today in a huge broken mill-stone lying near the ancient founda-tions. Later there was a carding milland a clothier's shop on the same site.Near the head of Lake Dawson, LeviPeck had a factory where iron candlesticks were made. Later, organs andmelodeons were made in the sameestablishment. Below Lake Dawson,Elioenai Clark made coffins and cabi-net work. There were saw and gristmills in various parts of the town.Capt. James Baldwin followed hisancestors in making flour at the mill west of Button Ball Corner. "Aunt Hannah's Flour," made here, was locally celebrated a few generations ago. There was once a clock factory operated by John Northrop, west of the Church, near the home of Henry C. Baldwin. There wasa nail factory in the ravine, and bolts were made at the sawmill place, west of the Church. Over in theWest River Valley, on the hillside opposite Lake Dawson, are to be seen two ruinous piles of masonry whosegreat arches remind one of Roman remains. These are kilns in which cement was once burned from rockquarried near by. The quality of the product not being high, the business was of short life.
    PAGE TWENTY

    The most important manufacturingindustry connected with -Woodbridge,was the match business. This town isreally the birthplace of the frictionmatch. The inventor was ThomasSanford, whose title to the distinctionis permanently secured by a decision ofthe U. S. Court. Mr. Sanford madethe invention while living in the neigh-boring town of Oxford. But his firstshop was in -Woodbridge, in a part ofthe house now occupied by RobertPayne as a residence. "Next he movedhis business to a larger shop, west ofand at the foot of Round Hill. Theruins of this building, which has justfallen in, may be seen near the so-called MRS. MORRIS F. TYLER. Sanford Place. Still later, Mr. San-ford built another shop further downBladen's Brook. The best known manufacturer of matches in Woodbridge, was William A. Clark, whose shop was on Bladen's Brook, below Mr. Sanford's. Mr. Clark was a man of large enterprise and a great inventor and improver of match- making machinery. A considerable settlement grew up in the neighborhood of his factory. In those days the paper match boxes had to be made by hand. This created an industry which was carried on far and wide by women and girls in their homes, in this and in surrounding towns. The Clark business was absorbed by the Diamond Match Company. The Woodbridge factory was operated till 1885.

    was buried in Pine Grove Cemetery but removed in 1890. to New
    Haven, Ct. ; m. Sept. 9, 1835, Jane Hotcbkiss, of Bethany, Ct., b.
    1809; d. F^b. 15, 1898. If Mr. Sanford did not n^,ake the first
    friction matches, he did, at least, for public nse, according to Hon.
    N. D. Sperry, Isl. C. There has been great controversy over the
    qnestiou as to who first discovered the use of brimstone for matches,
    and it will probably- never be definitely settled. His descendaJits
    assert without any misgivings that the credit belongs to M\\ Sanford.
    In ])roof of this his daughter. ]\I]-s. Laura S. Smith, writes
    the author that some years after he liad been making matches a
    New York ])arty applied for a patent and sent out an injunction
    on Mr. Saniord. This was litigated in the courts. 'Mr. Sanford
    showed himself enough of a discoverer in the process to prevent the
    New York party from geiting a patent. The iu junction was dissolved
    and he went on nuiking matches, but, as his daughter
    asserts, it was too late for him to get a patent. (The Amcyic:in
    Encyclopedia states that a patent was granted to Alonzo D. I'hillips,
    of Springfield, ^.lass., in 183G.) According to his daughter
    he began making matches in 1833 or 4, mixing the compound \\\ a
    teacup and making the matches with his knife, but he did not
    make them for sale to any extent until 1837 or S. They were first
    put up in small paper boxes and sold foi' twelve and one-!inlf certs
    per box. The blue label tliat was used \vas sent to the author. It
    reads:

    inerea.sing, lie soon built inueh larger quarters on the Seymour
    road, about a mile distant from tlie first shop and just below the
    Northrup sawmill. The building, tliough in a delapidated condition,
    is still standing. The business gave employment to many
    girls, women and meu in Woodbridge and Bethany. The boxes for
    the matches Averc mostly made by the pe<^ple at llioir homes. '1 lie
    factory team would take the matei'ial for the boxes to the liomes
    and get tJie boxes v.hen m^ade. Not fully appreciating liis great
    discovery, 'Mr. Sanford sold the reeiiie for the inixture of the ])iimstone
    to his townsman, AV. A. Clark, for the mere pittance of
    $?.5.00, who built a shop above that of :\Ir. Sanford and prospered.
    The matches were, for some years, sold almost entirely in the West
    Indies. Mr. Sanford 's son became superintendent of a large match
    factory in Cincinnati, 0., whicli he held for r.iany years.
    There was a great aversion and distrust of the lucifer, or fr'ctiou
    match, wjien it first appeared and for several years. If a fire
    occurred and any suspicious characters were aljout, they were^
    arrested, and if friction matches were found upon them they liad
    to prove their innocence. {From an interview in Xew Tlaicn

    1790 or thereabouts, it came to pass that two men, in pleasant rivalry it may have been, decided to start a wayside inn. Caleb Baldwin was one and Czar Keeler the other. The infection spreading, it was not long after, that "Tom" Seely opened an inn on the premises now occupied by George Northrop near the North Center schoolhouse. "Uncle Tom" was a shoemaker by trade, a jolly good fellow, but, a better shoemaker than landlord, his inn was not of long duration.

    ROLL OF MEMBERS OF THE FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH IN WOODBURY.

    This church was organized as the second church of Stratford, under the ministry of Rev. Zechariah Walker, May 5, 1670. In 1672-3, the larger portion of its members removed, and settled the town of Woodbury. The following is a complete list of its members from its first organization. It is given because it contains the names of all the church members in the territory of " Ancient Woodbury," for nearly sixty years, and because all the other early churches in the territory, of whatever name, were founded, in the first instance, by men who had been nurtured in its bosom. The admissions only are given. Deaths, excommunications and regular dismissions are

    Somewhere around 1700 we see Northrops moving away from Milford and shore areas. Often they were still close to rivers and waterways.Dfferent branches move north and west. This passage from the history of Kent gives some clues why they started expanding out at ths point. ".....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 land 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.

    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.Litchfield's Golden age was Kent was a vital center of activity until the railroad came through Kent in the early 1840's. before that dozens of horse teams entered from Quaker Hill NY loaded with iron ore to be cast into pigs and later hauled to market in Poughkeepsie. The iron furnaces and associated commerce spurred some of the golden age. Education and religious expansions involving extended family may have added to the interest for some family members. New Preston with it's marble and minerals was important for the iron industry as well. While I haven't found direct connections with mills/manufacturing, many family stayed close to Housatonic, aspetuck/Shepaug Rivers.

    There are no Northrops in the earliest divison of Kent, but the listings nclude familiar names connected to the Northrops through marriages Hubbell, Canfield, Smith, Fuller, Marsh, Pratt, Peck, Porter, Sanford, Camp. There are also references to the "Fairweather purchase" in which several Fairfield families purchase parts of Kent, Warren, Washington.

    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 Fairfield 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, (his 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.)

    Kent 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, NY loaded with iron ore to be cast into pigs and then hauled thirty miles to Poughkeepsie to market. ..The period of the settlement of Kent was that of Connecticut's first attack of the western fever. Llittle value was attached to the teritory of Litchfield county, before ~ 1700. There was land enough nearer the center of the colony, and the population was still too limited for the peopling of new towns. 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. First was the exploration and sale of the territory of the town of Litchfield. (included in the "Western Lands" conveyed by the colony to the towns of Hartford and Windsor in 1686-7), The sale of Litchfield was the first. In 1715, a committee of these towns, (John Marsh, the ancestor of the Marshes of Litchfield, was one) visited the region, "viewed" it, and secured deeds of it from the Indians.That sale roused the colony to assert its claim to the Western Lands, and in 1719 the legislature stated its precedence in the sale of the western lands. 1738; Cornwall at Fairfield, in February of the same year; Kent at Windham, in March;: Northbury church, organized 1740; Westbury, 1740; Bethlehem, 1740; Washington, 1742; Kent, 174i; Goshen, 1740; Cornwall, 1741; Canaan, 1741; Torrington, 1741; Harwinton, 1737; New Hartford, 1738. .Westbury, now Watertown, was constituted an ecclesiastical society in 1738, the same year as Kent.Bethlehem's petition, to become a distinct society, was granted 1739, and the church was organized the following spring, March 27, 1740. Washington's petition for an ecclesiastical society was granted in 1741 as the parish of Judea..with Rev. Reuben Judd as the first pastor. New Preston, the society of the western part of town (originally part of New Milford) was organized October, 1752.

    While not all the communities were as bustling as Kent and Litchfield, this was a period of settlement - Northbury church, organized 1740; Westbury, 1740; Bethlehem, 1740; Washington, 1742; Kent, 1741; Goshen, 1740; Cornwall, 1741; Canaan, 1741; Torrington, 1741; Harwinton, 1737; New Hartford, 1738.Westbury, now Watertown, was constituted an ecclesiastical society in 1738, the same year as Kent. In Bethlehem, petition for a separate society was granted 1739., In Washington, too, the first settlement with Joseph Hurlburt, locating there in 1736, and a 1741 ecclesiastical society, named "Judea," (Rev. Reuben Judd, the first pastor) the other society in Washington, New Preston, was organized October, 1752.Some suggest this was a movement that pervaded the colony, the first great set of Connecticut's westward tide.
    1826 About this time there was considerable agitation to have a canal from Stockbridge, Mass., to tide water at Derby. 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."...

     


    Isaac Camp, Isaac Camp 1738, 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\....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.

    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.

    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.

    Rev. Wm. H. Kirk, a consecrated Reformed Methodist minister, who was for fifty-one years a resident of tho town of Kent. 1844, at a sitting of the Vermont annual conference of the Reformed Methodist church he was ordained an elder in said church, 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.

    Later, he identified himself with the Prohibition party. 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 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.

    Mr. Kirk was Eminently successful as a revivalist, many of the members of different churches in and around Kent were converted under his labors and teaching.

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

    In 1779 Washington was Assembled from a patchwork of properties from Kent, New Milford, the Woodbury township and Litchfield. Prior to that the surrounding lands were American Indian owned by local tribes such as The Pomperaugs, Bantams, Schaghticokes, Weantinokes and Potatucks. They banded together for protection from the Mohawks on NY. Chief Waramaug (died 1735) was the major political power. As whites settled in the area, the band of tribes welcomed them as security and protection from the Mohawks. There were no battles over land transactions to the Europeans. In 1710, the Woodbury north purchase included much of what in now the town of Washington and the New Preston village. Six years later was the Fairweather purchase just west of the lake.

    KENT'S FIRST IRON WORKS Kent's fascination with iron began with the very settling of the town. First Division was auctioned in early 1738. At a 1738 Town Meeting there is mention " the Iron Pots." and 1744, it was voted "Ebenezer Barnum(from Danbury)may lay out land for making an Iron Works dam and an Iron Works." (at the outlet of North Spectacle Pond, the northeast side of the pond) It was an early form of ironworks able to turn out bar iron (pig iron) for the local blacksmiths, forges, and puddling works. It never became a blast furnace… kent hst soc The Iron Industry in Kent Excerpts from our Kent Tales volume, Iron Fever, which is available from our Gift Shop for $10. KENT'S FIRST IRON WORKS MACEDONIA'S FORGES AND MILLS Mills and forges below the gorge on Macedonia Brook began much earlier than has generally been realized. Several familiar names are associated with mills, forges and iron works on this area close to the New York boder. Joseph Fuller Obadiah Hawley of Stratford had given to Rebecca Algur (his daughter) William Castle Peter Pratt Hendrik Winegar Hopson Rufus Fuller from Plymouth Asa Parks Nathaniel Perry Samuel Johnson Erastus Chamberlain Garret Winegar Samuel W. Johnson With ponds, brooks, falls, and high grade ore nearby, also rocks, sand, line and charcoal, and a hill sloping from the road to the furnace site, over the Dam, Kent had several good locations available. IRONWORKS AT BULL'S BRIDGE perpetual optimism and discouragement for a series of ever-hopeful investors. The location on the Housatonic River below a frequently spectacular falls always appeared to promise great possibilities that lured a series of owners to try their hand at the iron business. At least as early as 1766 there is reference to an ironworks functioning Captain Johnsons IronworksIsaac Bull of Doveron the river within the limits of the Fairweather Grant With David Lewis also of Stratford, Johnson bought not only the Bull property but most of the land of the Fairweather Grant which extended east from the river and south of Bull's Bridge Road across the lower end of Kent to the New Milford line and east to Warren.Lewis Nichols Catherine and Pixley Judson of Stratford The Hurds of Newtown had a long interest in the iron business. Joseph Hurd Tallman Chamberlain of Kent Silas Camp of Claverick, Columbia County, New York Abel Beach.The arrival of the railroad drastically altered the face of Kent. Whereas the town center had originally been located in Flanders, about two miles north of the present Main Street, the establishment of the railroad in the flat river valley brought new life to the area formerly known as the "Grate Plain," once used as grazing ground. The lovely Victorian houses that still line Kent's main streets were built as a result of the railroad, and Flanders became a sleepy little hamlet of stately Colonial homes. The iron industry waned in the late 1800s, but Kent did not skip a beat. Farming, always practiced on a subsistence level, began to fill the gap left by the iron industry. With the hillsides clearcut by the voracious need for charcoal, dairy farms proliferated, along with tobacco, corn, hay, wheat, rye, chickens, goats, sheep and pigs!. Kent Historical Society though rarely on display, are two portraits by an earlier, also famous, local artist - Ammi Phillips. Were it not for Laurence Nelson and his wife Helen's arrival in Kent, Ammi Phillips' identity might never have been known. Helen Nelson was an art critic who had developed a keen eye for her subject. As she began to socialize with area residents, she noted many unsigned portraits, the quality of which quickly attracted her. She recognized them as all being done by the same primitive but talented hand, and set about to discover his identity. She staged an exhibit of his works in Kent, and in the March 1925 issue of International Studio, wrote a fascinating article about the yet unidentified "Border Limner" or "Kent Limner," as Phillips came to be known. Tirelessly promoting his work, through exhibits, speeches, and articles, Helen continued her search for his story, and was soon joined by other detectives. Eventually, a signed painting was discovered, and finally in 1959, Barbara and Lawrence Holdridge were able to conclusively prove his identity. Today, Phillips' portraits are considered to be exquisite examples of early American Primitive art. The period from 1756 to 1774 marking the rise in population of Kent to a figure of 1996, nearly the highest point ever attained, was one of hardship. Following the opening up of the "Western Wilderness" of Connecticut, settlers had been pouring in for twenty-five or thirty years from all sides from the towns of Norwalk, Stratford, Tolland, Canterbury, Hebron, Lebanon, Stonington, Colchester and others, although some did not come in until a little after that date. There were covered wagons over forest trails by day, and campfires by night to keep the wild beasts at bay. Lonely graves were left along the way, and husky new infants came through triumphantly. Roads were gradually being developed, lines of inter-town communication improved. In time tales of growing oppression of the British inflame the restless ambitions of the young men of the second generation, who were perhaps becoming less enamoured of the back-breaking and endless rocks of the beloved "rocks and rills" of their fathers. They could not share the gratified sense of achievement of their parents. The declaration of war offered them their opportunity. Many young men left Kent and some of them did not come back. A few were left on the battlefield probably and some, after hasty farewells to their families, pushed on to the west - Pennsylvania, New York State, Ohio, the new wilderness. In 1787, Kent severed its political connection with East Greenwich, as well as a part of Washington, and in so doing suffered considerable drop in populations. Miss Agnes Strong, writing the history of Warren, says "it has been somewhat accurately ascertained that 2837 have emigrated from among us in that time." She is referring to the 50 years previous to 1822. Kent figures enter into this before 1787, and probably with the general restlessness of the post-war period, the trend of emigration continued for some years. In 1826 the Kent Furnace was built just above the village, enlarged several times and finally in 1884. In 1826, too, the furnace was built at Bulls Bridge. The authority quoted here, Mrs. Laura Newton, makes no mention of the early furnace of Jacob Bull, nor of others, smaller and earlier. At one time some two hundred men were employed in Bulls Bridge with sixty-one children in school. It was a common sight to see 21 ox teams in a procession as they plodded their way through the covered bridge into New York State. Alder City on the west bank, at the foot of the old Skiff Mt. road, has one good house where once lived Benny Budnick and Matt Wean, of rattlesnake fame. Some seventeen children were ferried across to Flanders School daily, at one time. Now, except for Benny's house, there are only a few overgrown cellar holes. Occasionally in an open field anywhere in the spring you see a flourishing and beautiful lilac bush, a mute sentinel guarding the spot where once lived a happy family with laughing children. The railroad came through Kent in the early 1840's bringing a radical change in the iron business. Gone are the long processions of slow ox-carts to Poughkeepsie with the cast iron and returning with the ore. Ore from Salisbury, even from Richmond, Massachusetts was now brought directly to the siding by the Kent Furnace. With the elimination of most of the ox-carts, many of the laborers were perforce laid off, and with their wives and children left Kent to seek a living elsewhere. Ann Eliza Hopson, 1950

    18th Century History - Cheshire Academy is Founded
    From 1770 – 1780, the Episcopal religion was floundering in the colonies. Believing that the religion would be better received if there were an American bishop, a delegation sent Samuel Seabury to England. When he returned as the first Episcopal Bishop of America, one of his first duties was to start a school to educate future clergy. Cheshire was chosen as the site and in 1794 the Episcopal Academy of Connecticut opened its doors.
    The first headmaster, Rev. John Bowden, taught classes in a small building in town until the completion of a new school building. Bowden Hall was erected in 1796 as an “all Cheshire project,” since only one third of the donors belonged to the church. The original charter was quite liberal, providing for the education of both genders and the freedom for students to practice the religion of their family’s choice. In 1836, a new constitution designated the school as exclusively for boys, a system that didn’t change until 1969.
    19th Century History - Cheshire Academy Evolves
    The school taught classical studies and entered a period of stability. An interesting fact is that even though the school was officially The Episcopal Academy, by the early 1800s, parents and boys addressed letters to The Cheshire Academy. This was seen in letters of graduate Samuel Welles to his son Gideon Welles (letter 1, letter 2), who would later become Secretary of the Navy under Lincoln.

      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. Text: Edward Frisbie of Branford and His Descendants, by Nora G. Frisbie.

    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.^ * 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. Woodruff, formerly a member of Congress; Gideon H. Hollister, author of a standard history of Connecticut; Rev. Henry Ward Beecher; and Gov. Chas. B. Andrews.

    (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, 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., 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 thou 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.

    washingtonThe 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.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."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 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 Milford, about three miles and an half to the first mentioned bounds."

    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:
    M

    y 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.

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.
    ???

    http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hume/tree/19201.htmThe 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 is Thomas Grant Northrop son of Amos who went to Yale. [His brother, 27. Amos, b. Oct. 11, 1772. appears to have lived 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. Thomas Grant Northrop's wife, Aurelia Curtiss d/o Silas CURTISS
    (mother was a Clark Hester CLARK1709 in Stratford) 1741 Stratford & Ruth BIRDSEYE 1746 in Stratford ]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. 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 (now Lake Waramaug), 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.

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.

    ii Mary Elizabeth b. Sept 17, 18 70, d. Nov 5, 1870. 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 (search for Jelliffe for genealogy information) -- 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.

    Did David Alvord move north because of a connection of his mother to Rev Hezekiah Wakeman the misister for many years in Cornwall -- married to Gold?? David Alvord s/o John Alvord b: 11 JUL 1750 in Fairfield & Sarah Wakeman b: 21 NOV 1753 ?? 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.

    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.

    1794 Woodbridge, CT- Prepared for the New Haven Land Trust. New Haven, CT. Summary: In the northwest corner of New Haven on the east side of Whalley Avenue just south of the Woodbridge border lies a 14-acre area of forest, wetland, river and pond known as Pond Lily. Pond Lily is so named because of the lilies that have grown on the pond since the river was first dammed in1794 to provide power to a grinding mill owned by the Sperry family..1794

    Dr. Abirani Stoddard, who came to town in
    1804 as the second local physician. At first he lived on the west
    side of the river near the Episcopal church, but in this house he
    spent his last days. This old house was built in 1774 by Levi
    Hotchkiss.
    It was two stories, the second stor\- overhan.^inii- a few inches
    facin.u" the east. It had two chimneys, the north one bein.u" very
    larije. The timbers were lariie and squared with a broadaxe; the
    nails were hand made. The hall extended throutih the house east
    and west, containinii" two stairways meeting on the same landing.
    There were four good sized rooms on the first floor, with the additional
    summer rooms on the west side, a kitchen, pantry, milkroom,
    another room with a set-kettle and well.
    The large front door was on the east side, the smaller one on
    the south, which was the one mostly used.
    This house was burned in Oct., i<S94, revealing to the public
    for the first time the sub-cellar 12x15 ft., and 7 ft. deep. Many
    came to see the ruins and the sub-cellar which was used for household
    puri)Oses, there being nothing superior for a cooler. If this
    had been connected with a public house, one might think of it being
    used as a hiding place, and a station of the "underground railway"
    when the fugitive slaves lied to the north. It may be stated here
    that runaway slaves w-ere aided in this valley by the good people in
    sympathy with them.

    REVOLUTION 1775-1781
    Residents felt the impact of the war. Family members served, Those left behind helped support soldiers' families, Connecticut was know as the provision state in part for its contributions of food (livestock), muskets and cannons made at Salisbury iron works. General Washington travelled through Connecticut a number of times and General Rochambeau emcamped at Newtown 1781 on the way to the siege of Yorktown which ended the war. However, compared to most 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."

    Litchfield area 1784 -1834

    50 years between 1784 and 1834 known as Litchfield's "Golden Age". 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.
    The iron works thrived in the mid-1800s, but the ore petered out.

They are mostly painted white, some few red, and surrounded by a neat, plain picket fence, usually painted white."

    Amos
    Parent / Name
    Speculations



    Amos may have been a farmer, shoemaker (his eldest known son, Alvin, was a shoemaker) or in a profession related to leather.Chatham, NY reported as birthplace is suspicious. May be Chatham, CT (Alvords) or wrong Northrop line.
    Names WITH connections - Amos, BurrNames with possible connections - Gerrit, George, Fenn, Elmore, Winthrop, Blaine, Anzonetta /Antoinetta

    A number of Fenns have connections to Joseph Line - Second Congregational Church Milford "Plymouth" Amos had 2 known children but possibly more.Amos might have even spent some time in Berkshire County, MA.

     

    It is interesting to observe on the gravestones that widows were called relicts and wives who predeceased their husbands are called consorts.

    The oath of fidelity to which freemen were obliged to subscribe before they could exercise the rights that accrued to them when they had taken the freeman's oath:

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."

    "CENSUS NEIGHBORS"

    I've looked at the census records for myAmos to identify census neighbors who might be connected. AJNorthrup genealogy identifies Kent Warren and Washington as locations for MyAmos. Again, some changes in census location may actually be a change in boundary. The names of locations have changed as well.

    1790 prob too young OR Newtown w/parents who is Washington Amos?
    1800 Kent
    1810 MIA OR New Milford OR w/ family OR Vermont?? ???
    1820 Kent
    1830 Kent
    1840 Warren
    1850 Washington
    1855 dies Washington, buried, Warren
     
    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) and
    Woodville by Mount Tom
    1790 Census - MyAmos (if 1778 ~ 12, if 1774 ~ 16, if 1784 ~ 6)
     
    I include this only for comparison with a later references

    Amos 1790 Washington, CT
    MyAmos is probably too young to be this Amos.

    Who is this Amos??? Could be Amos Wellman Northrop (Jonathan line) Although AJN has him Residence: BEF 1801 Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY 16 kids b. Fishkill 1781-1798. He does not marry until about 1781. Not likely he is Amos' father. Since he was a teacher did he move back and forth with the school season?
    Is Amos Wellman Northrop the one listed in the Quaker Hill, NY store ledgers?

    1790 Census 12200
    1 male 16 or over
    2 males under 16
    2 females any age

    (Elijah 1790 Washington, CT there are a couple of Elijah's that can be confused. Likely he is the son of Samuel1718 & Lydia Thomas1723. b~ 1761 in Washington CT. m. Lucina Easton (Luxina)1764 (d/o Eliphalet Easton and Mary Gould is this Gould connected to Redding Goulds?) Eliphalet dies in Woodbury in 1785 Washington. Elijah D. 1829 in Humphreysville (Seymour), Connecticut Served (American Revolutionary War) Pension Awarded a pension (#s36199). Did Elijah have any connection to mills and manufacturing in Humphreysville? Died in poorhouse. Can't find any direct connection to myAmos. Other Elijahs 1790-1820 in Lee, MA, Lenox, MA in Oneida - no township listed -- NY in 1810. Elijah in Lenox, MA. None in CT 1 male 16 and over(born 1774 or earlier -- prob at least 22 ~ born 1768 or earlier), 2 males under 16, 2 females Both Elijah and Amos are MIA in 1810. There are many usual suspects in Fairfield Vermont 1800 census http://dunhamwilcox.net/vt/fairfield_vt_census.htmthere are 3 unreadable northrops in Danby VT in 1810. Check Ira VT for ages.1
