Northrop Genealogy

Family - Direct Ancestors - The Amos Proposition and the Circumstantial Rachel

Rachel (maybe Rachal) Ives How did she meet Amos Northrop?
from SF by 3rd cousin
Amos, who married Rachel Ives on January 27, 1797. Rachel was also from Connecticut, and was born in March of 1775, and died April 12, 1829 in Connecticut.

A Rather Distant Connection to Aner Ives, but they were family and with Amos as a neighbor (perhaps close by since their names are close on a census that does not appear to be alphabetical CHECK), they may have been just a few farms away. Rachel might have been named for Anor's wife, Rachel Wilmot Ives, although the tradition of god parents was rejected for the most part at the time.

note Cheshire was then a parish of Wallingford

A few very interesting bits from the History of Wallingford and the History of Cheshire.

There were a dozen or more Ives in Litchfield County in the 1790 census records. Almost all of them came originally from Wallingford/Cheshire. They are all related, but relationship goes back several generations for some, but back to two sons of William IVES2 1621? first , Immigrant to New Haven, CT in 1639. His 2 daughters marry Potter, Rose & Beach

NEW! I found a number of Ives in Colebook -- children of Joseph - Rhoda Ives and Ives as middle name for Blakeslee..
Thye must have spread out from Cheshire/Wallingdord. Quite a number of Ives (perhaps aunts and uncles) were married in the 1750s and 1770s in Goshen.

Ives'ia/Ive'sia: named after Eli Ives (1779-1861), a Yale University pharmacologist and professor active in the Connecticut Medical Society and involved with the founding of the Medical Institution of Yale College. Botany was one of the courses he taught and he established a botanical garden as part of the medical school. He pioneered in the teaching of childhood medicine and gave the first course in pediatrics in the United States. "Professor of Diseases of Children, Materia Medica and Botany, [he was] a graduate of Yale College in 1799, studied medicine with his father and with Eneas Munson and attended medical lectures under Benjamin Rush, Caspar Wistar, and Benjamin Smith Barton at the University of Pennsylvania. Although his mentor Munson, was named professor of materia medica and botany, the title was largely honorary for Munson was over 80 years old . From the beginning, Ives rather than Munson, taught the courses. Widely known for his knowledge of materia medica, Ives established a botanical garden in association with the medical school. He was a pioneer in the teaching of pediatrics in the U.S." Extracted from the website Medicine at Yale 1701-1901. "[He] lectured on materia medica and botany throughout his tenure at Yale. Student notebooks containing his lectures describe the medicinal values of numerous local and foreign botanical treatments and cures as prescribed by Ives. Many of the species that Ives described in his lectures can also be found in Fenn's four volume herbarium. This implies that Ives required his students, or at least those interested in pharmacology, to study and collect the local plants related to medicinal botany. Ives created what is probably one of the first botanical gardens in New England at what is presently the northeast corner of Temple and Wall Street in New Haven. He arranged the indigenous plants following the natural order of Jussieu, the arrangement that Fenn used in his herbarium. Fenn may well have collected local plants for Ives' garden or used plants from it for his collection." Quoted from a Yale Peabody Museum website on Horation Nelson Fenn, one of his many students (ref. genus Ivesia)
ivesia'na: after Joseph Christmas Ives (1828-1868), a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1852, who resigned his commission in 1861 to join the Confederacy and served as an aide to President Jefferson Davis. Before the Civil War began, he was a 1st Lieutenant in the Corps of Topographical Engineers like William Hemsley Emory, and he was commissioned to conduct an expedition to determine the navigability of the Colorado River, about which little was known, as a possible supply route to military posts in southern Utah and New Mexico. He had already done survey work, having been on the Whipple Expedition of 1853-1854. He arranged to have a steamboat built in Philadelphia and its component parts shipped via the Isthmus of Panama to San Francisco and then up the Gulf of California to the mouth of the Colorado. He steamed up past Fort Yuma to approximately where Lake Mead is today, then travelled overland into the Grand Canyon region, exploring its floor for the first time by white men, and investigating other parts of northern Arizona and southern Utah. It was a journey of daring and danger, yet in writing about the Grand Canyon in his diary, he recorded a sentiment that would demonstrate his inability to predict the future of the region: "It looks like the Gates of Hell. The region... is, of course, altogether valueless. Ours has been the first and will undoubtedly be the last, party of whites to visit the locality. It seems intended by nature that the Colorado River along the greater portion of its lonely and majestic way, shall be forever unvisited and undisturbed" (ref. Phacelia ivesiana)

Gamaliel and Lois Fenn who migrated from Kent, Connecticut to Dayton, Ohio in 1818. His mother was the daughter of Susan Lincoln and Elijah B. Merwin. In 1836 Dr. Fenn's father William and two uncles Norman and Ira Ives Fenn purchased a large body of land on the Illinois River north of Peoria, Illinois and founded the city of Lacon.

Soon after their arrival in Illinois, the Fenn family became acquainted with the young lawyer Abraham Lincoln. They supported him, in his early political career. Dr. Fenn's lawyer uncle, Ira Fenn, was associated with Lincoln in local legal matters.

Dr. Fenn's early education took place at the Lacon School and the Amherst Academy in Amherst, Massachusetts. Later, he attended Illinois College and Yale University. In 1860 he arrived in San Francisco to study medicine with Dr. H. H. Toland, the eminent surgeon who founded Toland Medical School, soon to become the University of California Medical School. In 1865 Dr. Fenn graduated from medical school and worked as Dr. Toland's assistant. In 1868 Dr. Fenn closed his private medical practice in San Francisco and visited San Diego. He immediately purchased twenty acres of land in San Diego and moved to the new community, recently founded by his fellow San Franciscan Alonzo Horton. Dr. Fenn opened his first San Diego medical office at 629 Fifth Avenue.

This census was taken in 1791, since Vermont was not admitted to the Union until that year. It listed the heads of the families as of the first Monday in April 1791. The names have been arranged in alphabetical order, and annotated by the editor of this pamphlet.

1. David Baker may have been identical with David, son of Samuel and Sarah (Barlow) Baker, born in Fairfield, Conn., 16 Oct. 1757. If so he married 1 Mar. 1789, Lucia Squire, and had a daughter Sarah bapt. in Fairfield, Conn., 19 Sept. 1790. Cf. D. L. Jacobus's History and Genealogy of the Families of Old Fairfidd [Connecticut], vol. 2, p. 34-3 5, 907.

2. Nathaniel Beardsley, as this name should be spelled, was a brother of No. 3, and of Deming Beardsley of the 1800 census.

3. Whitmore Beardsley, was the brother of Nathaniel above. He married Dolly Beard, daughter of Nathan and Sally (Smith) Beard. He was a Revolutionary soldier.

4. Andrew Bradley, son of Gershom* (Francis,* Francis*) and Jane (Dimon) Bradley, was born in Fairfield, Conn., 31 Jan. 1754; lived in Redding, Conn., in 1783, and New Fairfield in 1787. He married, first, Ruth Wakeman, daughter of William and Sarah (Hill) Wakeman, who was the mother of his seven children. He married secondly, Mrs. Jane (Dimon) Fanton. He married thirdly, Mrs. Orissa (Wilmarth) Barlow. He was survived by three daughters: Jane, wife of Abraham Northrop (Removed in 1792 to VT with his brothers Thomas & Amos. They were the first settlers in, and named the town of, Fairfield.); Sarah, wife of Salmon Soule; and Eunice, wife of Ira Wheeler. His father was probably the Gershom Bradley who was one of the original proprietors of the town of Fairfield.

5. Brazilla Brown has not been identified.

6, 7, 8. A Ralph Gregory died in Shelby, Orleans Co., N. Y., 20 Apr. 1837, aged 65 years. He was born in New Fairfield, Conn., "settled in Fairfield, Vt., about 1790" and, on 5 Feb. 1818, migrated by ox-team to Shelby, accompanied by his seven sons. The story of their migration is told in Arab Thomas's Pioneer History of Orleans County, New York (1871), pp. 380-388. He was probably the son of the Ralph K. Gregory of this census, who was perhaps identical with the Ralph Gregory who married Pamela Terrill at Newtown, Conn., 30 May 1764.

9. According to F. Phelps Leach, James Hawley was the son of Matthew Hawley, of Huntington, Conn. He was born about 1760 and died in Sheldon, Vt., 14 Apr. 1836. He married, first, at Huntington, 26 Oct. 1780, Bridget Stanton, who died in Fairfield in Aug. 1791, aged 26 years 3 months, and was buried near their cabin (her stone was still standing a few years ago in the calf-pasture on the Loren Gilbert farm). He married secondly, 12 Feb. 1793, Mrs. Martha (Stevens) Waterhouse, and moved to Sheldon. It is more probable that he was a son of Wolcott Hawley and returned to Connecticut.

10. David Hoyt, as the name is now spelled, was the son of David Hoyt, and was born in Connecticut. He came to Fairfield from Ridgefield, Conn., in 1788. His wife, Ellen, married secondly, John Andrews [Town Records, Book 1, p. 92]. The births of five children are to be found in the Town Records, Book 1, p. 38; they were Polly (married James Bradley), Laura, Betsey, Orsamus and Zimri (who died in Dickinson, N. Y., in 1840).

11. John Leach, Sr., was the son of Amos* (James,* James,* Laurence), born in New Fairfield Conn., to Aug. 1735. See F. Phelps Leach's Leach genealogy for his descendants. He settled in Fairfield about 1788, and was the father of John Leach who is listed in the census of Smithfield [q.v.].

12. Ebenezer Lobdell, to give this man his correct name, was the son of Ebenezer (Joshua,* Simons) and Rachel (Benedict) Lobdell. He was born 13 July 1735, and married Eunice Bradley, daughter of James and Abigail (Sanford) Bradley. She was a sister of Ezekiel Bradley, who settled in Fairfield a year or two later.

13. John Lockwood was undoubtedly the Lockwood who married one of the daughters of Joseph Wheeler [No. 25], according to the Wheeler genealogy.

14. Isaac Luce, as this name is now spelled, has not been identified. He was probably related to the wife of Edmund Towne [see No. 22].

15. Thomas Northrop, son of Thomas* (Thomas,* William, Thomas) and Joanna (Leach) Northrop, was born in Fairfield, Conn., 7 Nov. 1762. He married Clarissa Cone, daughter of Thomas Cone, a Revolutionary soldier who is reputed to have died on a British prison ship in New York harbor in 1779.

16. This name should be spelled Pangborn, and this man probably removed to Malone, N. Y.

17. Lemuel Roberts, probably born in Connecticut, died in Enosburg or Franklin. He was the author of a volume called Memoirs of Capt. Lemuel Roberts (published in Bennington, 1809), which is entirely religious in nature and, unfortunately, contains no reference to his experiences as one of the earliest settlers of Fairfield. This was probably the first book to be written by an inhabitant of Fairfield. It is very rare, but there is a copy in the Library of Congress in Washington.

18. Daniel Smith may have been a son of No. 19.

19. Jehiel Smith, son of Daniel* (John,* John* Johns) and Sarah (Price) Smith, was baptized in Greenfield, Conn., 3 June 1745 ; he was living in Fairfield in 1792, when he deeded some land in Connecticut to his brother Ebenezer; but removed to the Province of Quebec before 1796. For his ancestry see D. L. Jacobus, op. cit., vol. 2, p. 883-86

20. Joseph Soule, to correct the original editor's mistake in transcribing his name, was the son of Timothy* (Nathan,* George,* Georges) of the Mayflower (1620) and Elizabeth (Allen) Soule. He came from Dover, or Pawling, N. Y., to Fairfield about 1790.

21. Asa Squier, born in Connecticut in 1764, died in Strongsville, Ohio, in 1852; served in the Revolutionary War as a youth. He married 23 Oct. 1783, Eunice Wakeman, daughter of Ebenezer and Elizabeth (Webb) Wakeman. See Wakeman genealogy (1900), p. 186; D. A. R. Lineage Books, vol. 124, p. 21; Jacobus, op. cit., vol. 2, p. 999.

22. Edmund Towne, to correct the spelling of his name, was the son of Edmunds (Ephraim,' John,* Jacob,* Williams) and Abigail (Brewer) Towne. He was born in Massachusetts about 1756 and died in Georgia, Vt., 24 Aug. 1800. He was elected the first town clerk of Fairfield in 1791 and apparently held that office until his death. His first wife was Lydia Luce [perhaps a sister of Isaac Luce, no. 141; his second wife was Mrs. Polly (McMasters) Sabin, daughter of Robert and Elizabeth (Young) McMasters, of Williamstown, Mass,, and widow of Benjamin Sabin, of Georgia, Vt.

23. Levi Wakeman was probably the son of William and Sarah (Hill) Wakeman, and brother of the first wife of Andrew Bradley [No. 4].

24. One of the daughters of Joseph Wheeler [No. 25] married a Wheaton. This was probably the man.

25. Joseph Wheeler, ante, p. 5.

26. Zalmon Wheeler, one of the sons of Joseph and Frances (Hill) Wheeler, married Hannah Butler. She married secondly, Peter Thurston, and died in Centerburg, Ohio, 23 May 1866, aged 97 years. Zalmon Wheeler's eldest son, Almon, was the father of William Almon Wheeler, Vice-President of the United States.

27. This man's name was Sherwood Whitney. He was the son of Silas' (Samuel, Richard, John) and Esther (Sherwood) Whitney. He married Abigail Lobdell, daughter of Ebenezer [No. in above] and Eunice (Bradley) Lobdell.


Smithfield was originally a separate town, located between Fairfield and Sheldon. In 1792 it was annexed to Fairfield except for a narrow strip of land at the east end, which became a part of Bakersfield. Since every one of the families listed in this census lived in that portion of the town which became part of Fairfield the record is given here. It has been copied from the same source of that of Fairfield on the preceding pages, and annotated by the editor of this pamphlet.

1. Dimon Barlow was one of six brothers who were among the earliest settlers. They were probably the sons of David (David, Samuel, John, John) and Sarah (Bradley) Barlow, of Fairfield, Conn. In fact on the gravestone of Col. Bradley Barlow, one of the brothers, it is stated that he was born in Fairfield, Conn. David Barlow's mother was Susannah Hubbard, which accounts for the name of Hubbard Barlow [see below]. Sarah (Bradley) Barlow's maiden name accounts for the name of Bradley Barlow. Her mother's maiden name, (Sarah was the daughter of Gershom and Jane (Dimon). Bradley, and was a sister of Andrew Bradley, an early settler of Fairfield [see ,above]) accounts for Dimon Barlow's name: Thus circumstantial evidence is so strong that it is practically a certainty that these brothers were the sons of David and Sarah (Bradley) Barlow, of Fairfield, later of New Fairfield, Conn. This David was undoubtedly one of the original proprietors.

2. Hubbard Barlow [his name is spelled both ways, ending in a "t" or a "d," in the early records] became the largest single land-owner in early Fairfield. Today he would be considered a "realtor" of the first rank! He was a surveyor and probably the most important early inhabitant of the town. He died 11 Mar. 1804 in his 39th year, and was buried in the Village Cemetery, where his "table monument" may still be seen, although it is sadly weathered. He married, 10 Jan. 1788, Mary Hubbell, daughter of Eleazer and Anna (Noble) Hubbell. Their only child, a daughter called Polly, is reputed to have been the first white child to be born in Fairfield. She died in infancy. Mrs. Mary (Hubbell) Barlow married secondly, as Aug. 1804, Bushnell Bostwick Downs, of St. Albans. She married thirdly, Col. Joshua Danforth, her sister's widower, of Pittsfield, Mass. She died at the home of some relatives in Shelby, N. Y. The five males over 16 in Hubbard Barlow's family in this census were probably his brothers, David, Bradley, Ebenezer, Samuel and Gershom.

3. William Beden, as the name should be spelled, achieved fame as the father of the first white male to be born in Smithfield. This child was named Smithfield Beden, and was given a grant of 100 acres of land by the proprietors. Beden Hill was named for the family. William Beden married 18 April 1784, Caty Sunderland, daughter of John Sunderland [No. 14]. William Beden probably removed from Fairfield between 1810 and 1820.

4. This man's name was Clark Burlingame, not Burlington as the editor of the first census transcribed it. He probably descended from the Rhode Island family of this name. According to Hemenway he was the first representative of the town in the State Assembly, but this is not substantiated by Deming's Vermont Officers (1918 edition, ed. by John Comstock). He removed from town, perhaps to Shaftsbury.

5. Jabez Burr, son of Jabez and Elizabeth (Hull) Burr, came from Redding, Conn., where he married in Feb. 1778, Mary Bartram [not Bartlett as has been stated], daughter of Paul and Mary (Hawley) Bartram. He was a Revolutionary soldier. They had an only child, Aaron, who married Rebecca Cook, and was the father of 11 children. The family lived in St. Rocks.

6. Lewis Hall is said to have come from New Milford, Conn. His wife's name was Mabel, and they had children: Edmund L., Orange, Thomas, Salmon, and perhaps Levi. Orange Hall was a surveyor, and was one of the first men in Fairfield to die.

7. Samuel Hollister married 29 Jan. 1792, Mary Hendrick, daughter of John and Eunice (Bradley) Hendrick. They had at least four children [record in Town Records, Book I, , p. 383: Amara, Selina, Bradley and Elen. A Phebe Hollister married in Fairfield, 26 Aug. 1813, Samuel Montague, of Cambridge. She may have been connected with Samuel. Samuel Hollister does not appear in the census records after 1810.

8. Elnathan Jewett removed to St. Albans. He does not appear in the Jewett genealogy, but was quite possibly a relative of Elam and Eleazer Jewett, the former of Berkshire, Vt., and the latter of St. Albans.

9. John Leach was the son of John Leach, of Fairfield [q.v.].

10. John McNamara was a Revolutionary soldier and removed to Swanton.

11. John [Benjamin] Mitchell, a Revolutionary soldier, from Connecticut. He married in Stratford, Conn., 30 Oct. 1783, Jemima Sunderland, daughter of John Sunderland [No. 14 below]. She lived to be 102 years old and died in 1862. According to a Bible record their children were Truman, Joanna, Roswell, Susanna, Hubbell, Hepsibeth, Polly, Lydia, Delia. [Robert Mitchell, of Sheldon, was not their son, as has been stated. His name was originally Robert McMitchell and he came from Palmer, Mass.]

10. Asahel Noble has not been identified, but he may have been identical with the man of this name living in New Milford, Conn., in 1790. Several New Milford families removed to Fairfield.

13. Gabriel Sherwood was a son of Nathan (Joseph, David, Isaac, Thomas) and Joanna (Noble) Sherwood and was born, probably in New Fairfield, Conn., about 1769-1771; he died before 28 Apr. 1808, when his widow married the Rev. Isaac Hill. He married at New Fairfield, Conn., in Feb. 1788, Johanna Sunderland, daughter of John Sunderland [see. No. 14 below, and Nos. 3 and 11 above]. The names of his children are not known to the compiler, but he had at least five and probably more.

14. John Sunderland, probably a son of John and Jemima Sunderland, of New Fairfield, Conn., was a Revolutionary soldier. His wife was Jerusha and their daughter, Johanna, was baptized at Stratford, Conn., 9 May 1769. He had a son Wallis Sunderland who lived in Tinmouth, Vt.

It is interesting to note that this census shows what a part young men played in the settlement of the town—or any frontier town, for that matter. The majority of the heads of families in this census were between the ages 26 and 45, just as the majority of the children were under 10. Fairfield reached its apex in population around 1850. The following data, compiled from the United States Bureau of the Census figures, shows how it has grown and declined since 1790.

Total population in 1790, including Smithfied: 196

The new Haven Colony led to the creation of a number of towns as areas split off.
Ives family members went to Wallingford, North Haven and Hampton.
Here is a summary of the towns from the Wikipedia

Wallingford in 1670
Cheshire created from Wallingford in 1780
Meriden created from Wallingford in 1806
Branford in 1685
North Branford created from Branford in 1831
Woodbridge in 1784 (also partly from Milford)
Bethany created from Woodbridge in 1832
East Haven in 1785
Hamden in 1786
North Haven in 1786
Orange in 1822 (also partly from Milford)
West Haven created from Orange in 1921

some Ives in Bethany, Hamden

On 24 Nov 1638, Theophilus Eaton, Esq., Mr. Davenport and other English planters, made their first purchase of Momauguin, sachem, of that part of the country, and his counselors. The English promised to protect Momauguin and his Indians from his enemies, and that they should have sufficient planting ground between the harbor and Saybrook fort. The purchasers also gave the sachem and his counselors -- "12 coats of English cloth, 12 alchemy spoons, 12 hatchets, 12 hoes, two dozen knives, 12 porringers, and 4 cases of French knives and scissors." This contract was signed by Momauguin and his council on the one part, and Theophilus Eaton and John Davenport on the other part. Thomas Stanton was interpreter. By the oppression of the Mohawks and Pequots, this tribe was then reduced to about 40 men.

OTHER: William Ives, George Smith, Widow Sherman, Matthew Malstron, Anthony Thompkin, John Reeder, Robert Cogswell, Mathias Hitchcock, Francis Ball, Richard Osborne, William Potter, James Clark, Edward Patteson, Andr. Hull, Saml. Wilthead, John Clark, Edw. (?), John Moss, John Charles, Richard Beach, Arthur Halbidge, William Peck, Timothy Ford, John Potter, Widow (?), Thomas Trowbridge, Henry Rutherford, John Livermore, Peter Brown, Daniel Hall(?), James Russell, George Ward, Lawrence Ward, Moses Wheeler...

One of William Ives’ lots is in the bottom left, across the river. It is now the site of the Yale Medical School (see below). There were several divisions of land in the initial years. Probable current location of the site of William Ives house at 72 – 160 Congress St. He lived on what is now the corner of Hill and Congress Streets on the west side of the West River. (Conclusion)

The core of the settlement formed one large square comprised of eight squares surrounding this market place. But the activity of Colonial New Haven focused on the "tenth square", a group of streets plotted to the southeast between the harbor and the original Market Place. This "square" held the active mercantile quarter. The settlement lived of trade and farming. Its population increased from 1,000 in 1724 to 3,200 sixty years later, when the State Legislature made New Haven a city, and to 5,000 in 1800. Infertile land west, southwest, and north of the nine squares seriously limited growth in outlying sections.

The Long Wharf, which stretched into the harbor from the tenth square, housed an extensive shipping industry which controlled New Haven's economy in the early Federal period.

On the 11 December, 1638, they purchased another large tract, which lay principally north of the former purchase. This was bought of Montowwese, son of the great Sachem at Mattabeseck, (now Middletown). It was 10 miles long, north and south, and 13 miles in breadth. For this tract, they gave 13 coats and allowed the Indians ground to plant, and liberty to hunt on it. These purchases "included all the lands within the ancient limits of the old towns of NEW-HAVEN, BRANFORD and WALLINGFORD, and almost the whole contained within the present limits of those towns, and of the towns of EAST-HAVEN, WOODBRIDGE, CHESHIRE, HAMDEN and NORTH-HAVEN.

* This line includes a number of notable names. As Arthur Coon Ives put it in his 1928 Genealogy of the Ives Family (p.2):

"A member of our family was the first explorer of the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, one is president of a large insurance company, one ranks among America's best known publishers, one became a member of the Canadian Parliament, one is known for his ability as a railroad builder, one rose from humble circumstances to the office of lieutenant governor, and one--the black sheep--became a famous horse thief and bandit."

IVES, Charles Edward [1874-1954] – American composer
IVES, James Merritt [1824-1895] – American artist & publisher – partner in Currier & Ives
IVES, Icle Ivanhoe "Burl" [1909-1995] – American folk singer, actor and author
OLMSTED, Frederick Law [1822-1903] – American landscape architect
IVES, Chauncey Bradley [1810-94] – American sculptor
IVES, Joseph Christmas, Col. [1829-1868] – CSA & American Army officer, explorer, surveyor and cartographer

IVES, George Homer [1835-36--1863] – American bandit and villain - was a member of the infamous Plummer Gang
IVES, Herbert Eugene [1882-1953] – American physicist and inventor

The young and wickedIves of wall street



An Amos Northrop appears in the Kent Census, Aner Ives appears in the same census.

Rachel is a family name (mother) for the Ives family.

There is an appropriate break in the listed children of Aner Ives.

Ives and Northrop continue to appear in the same locations.

Amos Proposition

A Judd Northrop may of not be correct with birthplace as Chatham NY (just west of Mass) or another NY location.

It may be that Amos was born/brought up in CT or just over the border in NY

Elijah Northrop listed in same location in the census can't be father.

Too Young

Not sure the lineage for Elijah

Mabel Sarah, the eldest daughter, was married to Dr. Joel Northrop of New Milford, May 15, 1777. He graduated at Yale College in the same class with her brother Samuel, studied medicine and practised his profession in this city and vicinity, besides having a store and canning on the drug business. He built the stone house just out of the city on the Derby turnpike, which now stands a deserted ruin. Dr. Northrop died February 9, 1807, and his widow survived him just twenty-eight years. Their children were a daughter and six sons. The daughter was married to Elihu Ives, of this city, and lived but a few months. One of his sons was lost at sea, and another died in the dew of his youth. John Prout, his eldest, born in 1778, married Lydia Camp, of Litchfield, by whom he had several children. He died six years ago in Berlin, Wisconsin. One of his daughters, a handsome girl, married against her father's will, John Ridge, the Indian Chief of the Cherokee nation, and several years afterwards, he was killed in bed at the side of his wife by his own people, from supposed complicity with the course pursued by the General Government in regard to their removal and the payment for their lands. Ridge was a member of the Foreign Mission School, at Cornwall, in this State. Amos, the third son of Dr. Northrop, graduated at Yale College, in 1804; went to Charleston, South Carolina, where he studied law, married a Miss Bellinger, and died in 1812, leaving two sons and a daughter. One of the sons adopted the profession of his father, and the other, a graduate of West Point, was a captain in the United States army, and resigned upon the outhreak of the present civil war. Samuel Bird, another son of Dr. Northrop, was also a graduate of Yale and a captain in the United States navy.

He married a lady of Charleston, where he had his residence, but died childless in 1826. Rodolphus J?., the sixth and last who held any title to the Parsonage property, resided in this city, and was a carpenter and carver by trade. He died in 1860. Deacon Levi Ives married, for his second wife, Margaret, the daughter of Rev. Samuel Bird, named in his will, by whom he had three children, two sons and a daughter. It is curious to note how families die out in a place or lose their male representatives. John Pront, the father of Mrs. Bird, was for many years Treasurer of Yale College, one of ite earliest graduates, and, as the inscription upon his tomb-stone reads, a "gentleman of established character for probity, and for seriousness." He died in 1776, and left no male issue,—bis son John having died in his youth in 1732, four years after his graduation from College. And so the name of a family, prominent and influential in the first century of the Colony's history, is lost in the next, except that it continues to designate a narrow alley between Fleet and Meadow streets, sometimes called Peggy's Elbow. The Parsonage of the Blue Meeting House is still standing and habitable. No edifice that has been occupied continuously for a hundred years can fail to have varied associations, and this, surely, if it could speak, would have some strange tales to relate. In one of its chambers, Whittield lodged as he passed in his later years over the great stage road between Boston and Philadelphia ; for the early espousal of his cause, which cost Bird his college honors, ripened into a warm personal friendship, interrupted only by death. Within this house, we may suppose, were concocted the principal schemes to keep alive the spirit of the Separate Society and encourage its doubly- taxed members to wait patiently for a day of deliverance. It' nothing was done without conference with the minister, we may believe that its threshold was frequently crossed by grave Deacons and earnest Committees, seeking the light of his wisdom to guide them in any new perplexities. We may believe, also, that the Parson was sometimes in joy at the success of his party and the advancement of his Church, that.

. In November of the same year, Rev. Saul Clark was settled over the society, and remained until 1829. During his term a serious division arose in the society, and the feeling at one time was very bitter. I think he died in Meriden near thirty years ago. In 1830 Rev. Calvin Foote was called, but nothing ever came of it. In 1832 Rev. Wm. R. Gould was settled, and remained until 1838. I distinctly remember him as a pleasant, mild-mannered man, with a peculiar voice. Of course, I could not understand the knotty points of theology, but as a boy (although boys are not expected to know much) I could not help thinking that the most attractive feature of Mr. Gould's preaching, especially to the young men, was the presence of his family of fair and interesting daughters. Even in my boyish imagination they were about as fine specimens of the feminine gender as the town afforded. The family, I am informed, removed to Gallipolis, Ohio, and farther I have no trace of them. In 1840-41, Rev. John W. Alvord, of Winsted, was employed to preach, but I think was not regularly settled. Mr. Alvord was a man of great activity; had large descriptive powers, of great skill in word-painting, and terribly in earnest. He heard the thunders of Sinai, and saw the lightnings "flash from Calvary's Mount. All the tropes and figures, all the types and symbols of the Bible were to him vivid and startling realities. I have never, in a somewhat extended experience, heard any one who could so vividly portray the torments of the damned or the anguish of the hopelessly lost as he could. I think few who were present will ever forget a sermon which he delivered one December Sunday in 1841. It was a gloomy winter day, such as is described in " Snow-Bound," when

" A chill was in the frosty air—

A chill no coat however stout

Of homespun stuff could quite keep out

A hard, dull bitterness of cold,
That checked midway the circling race
Of life-blood in the sharpened face,

The coming of the snow-storm told."

By some mischance no fuel was to be had, and the old box-stoves that usually consumed so much of wood and time in vain attempts to warm the old barn like edifice, were as cold and cheerless as the day. His text was Romans vi: 23. He said but little about the gifts vof God, but the wages of sin were set forth in glowing colors. I can 't say for others, but I was ivarm during the delivery of that sermon. A burning sun in a July hay-fie'ld could not surpass it. Although I have somewhat recovered from that fright, I shall never forget it, even though my years should exceed those of Lomer Griffing. During his term a powerful revival occurred, and a large number were added to the church. He had traveled extensively in the South, and had seen the horrors of slavery ; and it was while he was here, I think, the first anti-slavery meetings were held in the old house. Little did we fancy then, as we listened to'his eloquent language, in his burning zeal against that blot on our civilization, that the lives of the noblest and best, not only of our friends and brothers, but all over the land, must be the penalty paid for all the shame and injustice of our nation. During the war Mr Alvord was very active in the Christian Commission, and also in behalf of the Freedmen, nor did he cease from his labors until the tired brain gave way, and the needed rest which he was too busy to allow himself to take was found in an insane asylum. Of late I have no knowledge of him, but I am sure that you who remember him will join with me in the wish that his last days may be peaceful and happy.

Barkhamsted, Conn., and its centennial, 1879:


a Jesse Ives is mentioned as a 1776 refugee from Long Island a congregational or presbyterian minister from Cutchogue

rev Jesse Ives served in Mass right near the CT border until his death " The town of Monson lies in Hampden county, about 14 miles east of Connecticut river; and is bounded on the N. by Palmer, on the E. by Brimfield and Wales, on the S. by Stafford, Ct., on the W. by Wilbraham.

In Oct. 1772, the district extended a call to the Rev. Jesse Ives, and offered him £100 settlement, and £65 and 30 cords of wood, as an annual salary. During the war of the revolution, specific grants were made, at different times, for his reliet. It appears from the records, that in the years 1785 and 6, considerable dissatisfaction existed among the people, in relation to Mr. Ives. Two or more ecclesiastical councils were called in succession, to consider the subjects of complaint; and by their advice and labor, difficulties were removed, and he continued pastor of the church until his death.

The second pastor was Rev. Jesse Ives. He was born at Meriden, Ct, 1736. He was educated at Yale college, and was graduated 1758. He first settled in the ministry, in what was then a parish of Norwich, Ct., now the town of Franklin. How long lie continued there is not ascertained. He came to this place in 1772, and was installed over the church, June 23, 1773. He died, while pastor, on the 31st of Dec. 1805, in the 71st year of his age. The period of his ministry, in this place, was 32 years and six months.—The present pastor of the church was ordained Dec. 17, 1806. His native place is West Springfield. He is a graduate of New Jersey college, of the class of 1804. He pursued his theological studies at the college, one year under Prof. Kollock, and the remainder of the lime under the direction of Dr. Lathrop of West Springfield, Spiritual blessings. These our gracious Lord has bestowed upon the church in much mercy, and to the glory of his great name. He has attended the preaching of the word of his grace by the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven, according to his will. He has frequently refreshed his heritage when it was weary, and to his name be all the glory. There have been nine seasons, within the 25 past years, in which more or less special attention to religion was manifest, and in which a greater or less number were brought to submit to Christ, and take his yoke upon them. The years 1810, 12, 13, 17, 19, 25, 29, 31, and 34 were particularly distinguished by divine influence. The number brought into this church, as the immediate fruit of these revivals, is about 500. Two-fifths of these were admitted to the church from the summer of 1810 to the close of 1817. Many who were subjects of renewing grace, during the progress of these revivals, have united with other churches, and some remain unconnected with any church. Though divine influence was more special and powerful in the years 1S12, 13, and 17, yet, from the beginning to the close of these five years, there seemed to be a silent progressive work of the Holy Spirit. The number admitted to the church averaged about 25 a year. The subjects of these revivals have generally held on their way, and witnessed a good confession. Some have gone back to their former state of feeling, and habits of thinking and acting; while others have, in great measure, lost their spirituality, and their deep concern for the good of Christ's church, and the cause of vital godliness. But while we have looked with grief upon such cases of departure from God, we have been permitted to witness the triumphs of some in the last contlict, and are cheered in beholding others living for God."
