L. AUGUSTUS Pattridge" (14718), b. in Chesterfield, N. H., June
3, 1819; removed with his parents to Peacham, Vt., the following
year, where his early life was spent attending the district school and
assisting in the labors of the farm, enjoying the sports of the hunt for
game was plentiful, the shy partridge, the squirrel and even deer and
bear were often met. He early showed a talent for music, and would
leave his play to sit by his mother's spinning-wheel to sing with her.
While yet a boy he made a violin, on which he played for a time, go-
ing to the woods and cutting a tree to get the proper wood, and the
only tools at his command to use in its construction was a saw, jack-
knife, and a piece of an old scythe. He sold this violin and later he
led the choir in the church with another violin, and also his voice. He
afterwards mastered the clarionet and for a time was leader of the
Peacham brass band. They played at the ''June training," which was
popular at that time, and helped foster a military spirit, and gave them
practical knowledge for future use. The band was also in demand at
Commencement, which was the greatest event of the year in the com-
munity, for in Peacham was situated the Academy, the chief county
school and pride of the people.

He, at one time, by his courage and presence of mind, quieted a
panic in the crowded church, when a heavy rumble and an apparent
settling of the building, from the cracking of an underpinning stone,
caused a wild stampede for the doors. The band occupied the high
gallery. He directed them to keep their seats and play, which quieted
the people before anyone was injured.

He was a student at the Peacham Academy, also taught the Water
Street School, which was a hard school to govern, his future wife was a
pupil and stood in much awe of the stern teacher, who was a strict
disciplinarian. On attaining his majority, he visited the west in the
summer of 1840, stopping for a time with his uncle, Jotham Wood,
near Jackson, Mich. The railroad, at this time, only extended fifty



454 DESCENDANTS OF

miles west of Detroit. When he went on from Jackson, he walked to
St, Joseph, Mich., a distance of eighty miles, went by boat to Michigan
City, Ind., and again on foot to Chicago. One warm day he walked
twenty-four miles, the road-way was sandy, and so heated by the sun
that he blistered his feet. He went from Chicago up into the Fox
River country which was utterly wild at that time ; here he was attacked
with fever and ague which few escaped, and returned in poor health to
his home in Vermont, but recovered after a few months. The follow-
ing year, he engaged with his father to work on the farm for five years,
at $100 per year; at the close of this period, he purchased the home-
stead which was a portion of the 400 acres of land, which his grand-
father had bought for his two sons, Joseph and Lyman, and where
most of his life had been spent.

He married Dec. 19, 1845, Ellen C, oldest daughter of Rufus and
Electa (Skeele) Miner, born in Ascott, Lower Canada, Oct. 24, 1825.
He had a natural turn and taste for farming and was a reader of agri-
cultural books and journals, beginning with " The Boston Cultivator,"
and later, "The Scientific American," "The Working Farmer," "The
Agriculturist " and the " New York Tribune." From these he gained
many ideas, and fearlessly practiced many methods, which were un-
heard of by his neighbors, notable among which was his " reclaimed
swamp," which he had with almost incredible labor, reduced from a
wet and boggy thicket of bushes and fallen logs to a rich and produc-
tive field, handsome to look at, of which he was justly proud. He was
always progressive, being the owner of one of the first two " Wheeler
& Wilson" sewing machines ever brought into Caledonia County. It
was a beauty, silver-plated, and cost $115, when that sum was as hard
to get as $500, now.

The severe, long and cold winters discouraged his efforts at small
fruit culture, and in the winter of 1865, he removed to Bureau Co., 111.,
where he settled on a farm a few miles south of Buda, and for a num-
ber of years devoted his time mostly to the culture of small fruits.
While living there, his shoulder was broken, by being dragged by a
runaway horse, and he had also a dangerous illness of lung fever. In
1880, he left the farm and moved to the village, where he still culti-
vated a few acres of small fruits, and took much pride in their quality.

Early in the autumn of 1888, he was stricken with creeping paralysis,
and died Dec. 15, of the same year. It was said of him at his funeral,
" He lived a brave life and died a brave death." Children :

Louisa Davis of Dublin, N. H., who is now living in Keene, N. H.
He passed his early years on the farm, and enjoyed such advantages
for education as were provided by the common schools, supplemented
by a few terms in Mt, Caesar Academy in Swanzey, N, H. He cher-
ished a hope to become qualified for a professional life, either at medi-
cine or law, and directed all his energies to that purpose, but often
found the way obscure and discouraging, yet by perseverance he
realized his anticipations. He studied law in the office of Hon. Levi
Chamberlain in Keene, N. H., and afterward with Gen. James Wilson,
formerly of Keene, in San Francisco, Cal., where he was admitted to
practice as Attorney and Counselor-at-Law, Feb. 9, 1854, and returned
to his native state in Nov., 1855. In the spring of 1856, he went to
Minnesota, then a territory, where he engaged in business as a lawyer
in Stillwater, and important interests were placed in his care. He was
a member of the legislature of Minnesota in 1861-2.

Under the urgent call of President Lincoln, for 600,000 men to re-
inforce the Union army in August, 1862, he joined the military ser-
vice. As a recruiting officer for the Seventh Minnesota Regiment
Infantry he enlisted a full company of men in five days, and reported
forthwith in Fort Snelling, Minn., for duty. He was elected captain
and directly given the command of his own Company C and Company I,
with orders to move directly to Fort Ripley, Minn., to assist in the de-
fense of that post against Chippewa Indians, who were then harassing
the settlers of that frontier. Soon a "Council of Peace," of which
Capt. Burt was a member, was convened, whereby peaceful relations
were resumed with that tribe, through their Chiefs, and his command
(Company C and Company I) was ordered to join their regiment,
which had been protecting other parts of the state, suffering from the
depredations and cruelties of the Sioux Indians, and were then in
Mankato, Minn. His detachment arrived there Nov. 23, and was
assigned to duty as guard of the Sioux prisoners, three hundred of
which had been sentenced to close confinement, and thirty-nine to
death, by a military commission. Company C was given the post of



JOHN WHITE. 459

honor on the day of execution, Dec. 26, 1862, and Capt. Burt as
" officer of the day " received much credit for his services. Again he,
with his company, were called upon to perform the somewhat perilous
duty of escorting the three hundred Indian prisoners, in the spring of
1863 to Rock Island, 111. by steamboat, and returning they joined in
the summer campaign against the Sioux in Dakota. With a small de-
tachment Capt. Burt was ordered to Devil's Lake to reconnoitre for
stray Indian bands, and there captured Wowinapa, the son of Little
Crow, the powerful Sioux Chief, in the massacre of 1862 in Minnesota.
The entire command of Gen. Sibley returned to Fort Snelling, Sept.
16, 1863, and the Seventh Minnesota regiment was soon ordered
south to aid in the great work of suppressing the Rebellion. In St.
Louis they were retained during the winter for guard and escort duty.
Here Capt. Burt received a commission as major of his regiment,
dated Nov. 6, 1863. In April, the regiment was sent forward to
Paducah, Ky., thence, June 19, was ordered to Memphis, and assigned
to the " Third Brigade, First Division, Sixteenth Army Corps," under
(ien. A. J. Smith. From this time, for this regiment, the service was
very hard ; long marches, coupled with severe deprivations and fre-
quent engagements with the Confederate army, following the for-
tunes of "The Sixteenth Army Corps," which was expected to hasten
hither and thither, to strengthen the forces of every L'nion general
in want of troops, often taking the brunt of the battle upon their
arrival. Thus going from Memphis to Tupelo, Miss., Oxford and
Tallahatchie, to Arkansas and Missouri, by forced marches pursuing the
Confederate General Price and his command through mud and snow,
fording icy rivers, hungry and weary, reaching St. Louis and hurried on
to assist General Thomas in his great battles at Nashville, Tenn., Dec.
15 and 16, 1864, following Hood in his flight through Tennesee ; then
to Eastport, Miss., and New Orleans, and on to Dauphin Island, where
the 16th Army Corps was reorganized for the great siege of Mobile,
arriving there March 20, 1865. They were at once sent forward to
invest the Spanish Fort, which was reduced Apr. 8, 1865. The Seventh
Minnesota regiment, under Major Burt, did garrison duty from that
time till July 20, at Montgomery and Selma, Ala., when they started
homeward and were mustered out of the military service at Fort Snell-
ing, Minn., Aug. 16, 1865.

Originally possessed of a strong constitution, the exposures of army
life, during three years of continuous active duty as a soldier, exhausted
the vitalit}' of Major Burt, causing an illness from which he did not

recover. He d. Mar. 15, 1866, at Worcester, Mass., at the home of
his only surviving sister, leaving a widow. His military services were
highly appreciated by his superior officers. He received the commis-
sion of Brevet Lieutenant Colonel United States Volunteers, from
President Johnson, for gallant and meritorious service at the siege of
Spanish Fort, Mobile Harbor, Ala.

ship with Thomas C. Jenkins, he established a wholesale flour and gro-
cery house, which is now the largest in the world. Later he withdrew
from the firm to establish the wholesale flour house of F. W. Jenkins &
Brother of New York and Pittsburg, and the well known " Old Tea

burg. He d. Apr. 11, 1888.

Mrs. Jenkins bought a tract of land in Northern Alleghany which
she opened up as a suburban residence district under the name of
" Duquesne Park." It was owing to her efforts that the northern part
of Alleghany became the popular residential section that it is to-day,
the natural beauties of the location having been ignored before she
brought them to the attention of the public. Children :
