BETTS and Northrop Georgetown, CT

" Godfrey & Son ran the grist and saw mill for many years and did a large business. In 1853 or '54 Ephraim Godfrey died. His son then continued the business. About this time a new grist mill was started in the old woolen mill lower down the river and the Godfrey Mills did not have much to do, and later the mills were closed. Some time after, Edwin Gilbert bought the property, rebuilt the mill dam and mill, enlarging it, fitting it up for other manufacturing; for a while, Betts & Northrop had a carpenter shop there. Blood's patent flour sifter and other wire goods were made there at this time. Later the Gilbert & Bennett Co. purchased it and changed it into a wire mill" redding web page Amos Northrup(1815 s/o Philip Ridgefield)

    CHARLES B. NORTHROP PASSED the age of three score years and ten and still active, is a record of which Charles B. Northrop may well be proud. Albeit, everyone who knows him is proud of him. He was born in Ridgefield, the birthplace of two governors, January 10, 1839, a son of Amos Northrop and Eliza Ann Betts. After attending the public schools the finishing touches of his education were put on in a private school. A few of the early years of his life were spent in New Haven, this state; New York city and Vineland, N. J. However, Connecticut was home to him, and, returning to Ridgefield he has since remained there. He was married to Miss Lucy Anne Smith in Vineland, August 1, 1865, and three children were born to them Carrie, born April 23, 1866, died June 14, 1885 ; Rebi, born October 14, 1867 and Grace, born January 5, 1874. Mr. Northrop is and always has been a builder. In town affairs he has served as a member of the Board of Education, Board of Burgesses and at present is Tree Warden. He was an incorporator and director of the Ridgefield Savings Bank and is a past master of Jerusalem Lodge, A. F. & A. M. He was master of the lodge twelve times and has held all its offices. He is parish clerk and a member of the vestry of the Episcopal church. He belongs to the Republican party and has represented his town twice in the Legislature, first in 1879 and in the last session, when lie was a member of the committee on incorporations.


    NOTE: This ancestry report starts with Charles S. Nash, diarist Jared Nash’s son (born during the diary period) in order to include both the Nash and Smith clans. Data here are being updated frequently.




    1.  Charles Smith NASH1 was born on October 6, 1865 in Ridgefield, Conn..  He died in 1929 in Ridgefield, Conn..  Charles was probably born late in the evening of the 6th, after Jared had already made his entry for the day. Charles Smith Nash, named after Jared's father and Emily Smith Nash's family, hardly knew his father; Jared died five years after Charles' birth. After Jared's death, Emily moved with her children to the Smith family homestead on West Lane. At age six, he started attending Flat Rock School and later went to West Lane Schoolhouse. His teacher in both schools was Miss Jeannie E. Holmes. As an older boy, he boarded at the home of William H. Gilbert, from whom he learned the carpenter's and building trades. At Charles' death on Aug. 9, 1929, The Press reported that "Mr. Nash was always regarded as an earnest student and was a discriminating reader of the best literature. He possessed a wonderful memory and nothing of any value was ever lost to him." Charles took over Gilbert's building business and later went into partnership with William F. Hoyt -- perhaps the same William Hoyt mentioned in the Oct. 3 entry. As "Nash and Hoyt," they erected many fine houses, including the mansion at Main Street in King Lane. Charles had a "judgment [that] was sound and practical, and his counsel could always be depended upon," The Press said. He was the town's first fire chief, had a Boy Scout troop, was a member of the Pilgrim Lodge of Odd Fellows, served on the Board of Burgesses for the old village borough for many years was a director and vice-president of the First National Bank and Trust Company of Ridgefield, a director of the Ridgefield Savings Bank, and a trustee of the Methodist church. He was a Democrat.






    2.  DIARIST Jared NASH was born in 1825 in Ridgefield, Conn.  He died in 1870 in Ridgefield, Conn.  The 1850 Census reports that Jared, 23, was living Cyrus B. Grummon, a shoemaker who lived on the corner of West and Golf Lanes in a house no longer standing. Grummon was a shoemaker, and the census lists Jared also as a shoemaker. Jared was probably an apprentice to Grummon, learning the shoemaking craft. More interesting is the fact that the census-taker's immediately preceding visit was to the home of Gamaliel Smith, whose 18-year-old daughter would eventually marry Jared. Perhaps it was while he was living with Grummon that he got to know Emily, and began courting her. Also living with Grummon was Henry Partrick, 22, listed as a shoemaker. Partrick was probably also an apprentice.  He was married to Emily A SMITH on November 12, 1856 in Ridgefield, Conn..


    3.  Emily A SMITH was born about 1832 in Ridgefield, Conn..  She died in 1901 in Ridgefield, Conn..  Jared NASH and Emily A SMITH had the following children:


                                       i.    Emily Louise NASH was born on April 16, 1860 in Ridgefield, Conn..  She died in 1915 in Ridgefield, Conn..

                 1                   ii.    Charles Smith NASH.






    4.  Charles NASH was born on December 17, 1793 in Ridgefield, Conn..  He died in 1878 in Ridgefield, Conn..  The vital records show that Roxana, wife of Charles Nash, died in 1821. Charles himself refers to his first wife as Roxana in a deed. In RLR 17/23 on March 12, 1842, Charles Nash quit claims to his father Jared Nash eight acres "near to and north of the house of Jared Nash," bounded north by Hiram L. Seymour and Thaddeus Keeler and by "The Branch," and by Jared Nash; southeasterly by highway, "the above being a tract of land which belonged to my first wife, Roxana Nash, decd." Also one other tract lying in said Ridgefield near the foot of the Silver Spring Road so called in quantity three acres more or less, bounded north by land of heirs of Samuel O. Nash decd., west by land of said heirs, south by land of said Jared Nash, and east by highway. My right and interest in the same being the use and occupation thereof during my natural life. Witnesses included Elizabeth R. Grummon and Harvey Smith.


    5.  Roxy KEELER was born on April 1, 1794 in Wilton, Conn..  She died in 1876 in Ridgefield, Conn..  Charles NASH and Roxy KEELER had the following children:


                                       i.    Elizabeth R NASH was born in 1822 in Ridgefield, Conn..2  She died in 1901.2  "E.R.G" was Elizabeth R. Nash, the daughter of the daughter of Charles Nash by his second wife, Roxy Keeler (his first wife Roxanna Nickerson died in 1821, and Elizabeth was born in 1822). Although no birth record has been found, this relationship seems certain because: 1. Elizabeth R. Nash married Charles Grummun in 1841. When Charles died a few years later, Charles Nash and his father, Jared Nash, served as administrators of his estate . 2. Charles C. Grummun, the son of Charles and Elizabeth Grummun, is living with Charles and Roxy Nash in 1850.  3. Elizabeth R. Grummun, her husband and child are buried right next to Charles and Roxy Nash at the Ridgefield Cemetery.  Thus, E.R.G. is Jared Nash's sister. She was born in 1822 , married Charles Grummun Nov. 10, 1841,   but he died Aug. 6, 1847, only 29 years old.  Two weeks earlier, on July 31, 1847, their year-old son, Henry S. Grummun, had died. On Dec. 24, 1847, Elizabeth R. Grumman was appointed guardian of their two children - Elizabeth A. “Libby” Grummun, 5, and Charles C. Grumman, 7.  She died 1901.  She may have been a seamstress. She became professed member of the First Congregational Church in 1840.  Charles and Elizabeth lived in a house at the north corner of Main and Market Streets, possibly the one still standing there today, now owned by the town.  The house was right across Market Street from Hurlbutt's Market. She sold the place in 1850 to Rufus H. Pickett, who lived there and had a cabinet shop just down Market Street from the house . She later lived in New York City and Stamford - and possibly died in Stamford. When Charles Nash (q.v.) transferred all his property to his father, Jared, in 1842 to handle his insolvency problems, Elizabeth R. Grummun and Harvey Smith signed as witnesses.  Elizabeth's husband may have been a son of Caleb Grumman, whose daughter, Emily, married David W. Olmstead. Both David and Emily Olmstead appear in the diary. Name is spelled Grumman, Grummon, and Grummun in various sources, but the gravestones say Grummun and, in March 25, 1850 guardianship report, she clearly signs her name Grummun. Daughter Libby is a teacher in town and a frequent visitor at the Nash homestead.

                 2                   ii.    Jared NASH.

                                     iii.    Mary NASH was born on September 19, 1828 in Ridgefield, Conn..3 She died on July 19, 1850.3


    6.  Gamaliel SMITH2 died on February 15, 1861 in Ridgefield, Conn..2  He was buried in Gamaliel Smith Cemetery, lower West Lane.2  He was 73 years old at his death, according to RVR. The record says he was born in Ridgefield. A Gamaliel Smith died Jan. 5, 1782, probably the son of Samuel Smith 3rd and Mary Smith. Possibly born Nov. 2, 1717.

    On Dec. 21, 1833, Gamaliel and Polly Smith quit claimed to Jared Northrup for $110 two acres bounded north by Cyrus Northrup, west Jared Northrup, south Abigail and Eunice Northrup, and east highway, "lying in the southwest part of Ridgefield...being the land distributed to me the said Polly Smith from my father Jared Northrup decd estate" [RLR vol. 15, page 214]

    The same day, they also sell to Hiram H. Northrup for $140 four acres in southwest Ridgefield, bounded north and east by Widow [of] Joseph Northrup, decd., south highway, west Benjamin Keeler [Vol 15 page 214]

    On April 2 1834 Daniel Smith of Ridgefield for $1 quit claims to Gamaliel Smith four acres bounded south by Fanny Olmsted, wife of Walter Olmsted, west Josiah Benedict, north highway and east own. This is probably on West Lane. [Vol. 15, page 235]

    Then Gamaliel to Daniel, two acres bounded south by Fanny, west own, north and east, highway [ibid]  He was married to Polly NORTHROP about 1815.4


    7.  Polly NORTHROP2,5 was born on March 20, 1794.4  She died on May 13, 1881 in Ridgefield, Conn..2  She was 87 years old at her death. On Nov. 12, 1881. her heirs gave their power of attorney to Jared N. Olmstead. They call Polly their mother. They are: John B. Smith, Daniel Smith, Laura Smith, Elizabeth Smith, and Emily A. Nash, all of Ridgefield; Walter Quintard and Sarah, his wife, Henry L. Seymour, Samuel M. Seymour, and Francis S. Seymour, all of Norwalk; Edwin O. Seymour, Stephen R. Birchard and his wife, Betsy, all of Wilton. The document mentions that Polly was an heir of Abigail Northrop, and property was in both Ridgefield and New York State. She is buried at Smith Cemetery on lower West Lane.  Gamaliel SMITH and Polly NORTHROP had the following children:


                                       i.    Laura SMITH was born on March 29, 1819 in Ridgefield, Conn..3  She died on January 2, 1910 in Ridgefield, Conn..6

On March 12, 1842, Charles Nash quit claims to Jared Nash eight acres "near to and north of the house of Jared Nash," bounded north by Hiram L. Seymour and Thaddeus Keeler and by "The Branch" and by Jared Nash, southeasterly by highway. "The above being a tract of land which belonged to my first wife, Roxana Nash, decd." Also transferred was a tract "near the foot of the Silver Spring Road so called in quantity three acres more or less," bounded north by land of heirs of Samuel O. Nash decd., west by land of said heirs, south by land of said Jared Nash and east by highway. "My right and interest in the same being the use and occupation thereof during my natural life." (RLR 17-223) Witnesses included Elizabeth R. Grummon and Harvey Smith. RLR 17/224 on the same day, Jared Nash for $1,000 sells Charles Nash two acres and buildings "the place in which said Charles now resides," bounded north by Edwin Benedict, east and south by Hiram L. and Charles Seymour, west by highway. In another deed, RLR 17/224, Jared Nash sells Roxy Nash, wife of Charles Nash of Ridgefield, six acres at New Pound Ridge, on the west side of the road, bounded north by land of Joshua King, west by state line, south by Hiram L. Seymour, east by highway; and seven acres, near the above, also on the west side of the highway, bounded north by Rufus N. Seymour, east by Seymour and Jared N. St. John, south by Jared N. St. John.
