afterward a lawyer in Cleveland, where he has been a law-partner with the author of this volume since
1869. Mr. and Mrs. Ford have had ch.: (1) Myra Eliza, March 10, 1862. d. Jan. 2, 1869; (2) Harriet
Fenn, Nov. 17, 1863; (3) George Whitniarsh, Nov. 8, 1865; (4) Anna Grace, Jan. 6, 1871; and [5) Lewis
Augustus, Aug. 0, 1872.

Sereno Peck Fenn, s. Sereno Fenn, b. April 25, 1844; m., May, 1873, Marj' Augusta (Larrimore)
Dewitt, \vidow of J. H. Dewitt, formerly a merchant In Cleveland. Mrs. Dewitt was from Niles, Ohio.
Mr. S. P. Fenn, August, 1880, has no ch., and is a partner in the extensive wholesale house of Sherwin,
Williams i.t Co., doing business in Cleveland.
The first Benjamin Fenn was, as we have said, a very leading man in Milford, in New Haven Colony,
and after the union in Connecticut. He was one of the five persons who, in February, 1639, took the deed
for the planters for "6 coats, 10 blankets, 1 kettle, 12 hatchets, 12 hoei, 2 dozen knives, and a dozen small
glasses (mirrors). He was, says Lambert (History of Milford, page 136), liberally educated. He was chosen
Magistrate of the Colony in 1661; but, says Trumbull (History of Connecticut, page 251, ed. 1797), "the
spirit of republicanism was so high that several of them would not accept their appointments; and take
the oaths prescribed. Mr. Fenn, was hardly prevailed upon to accept his office. He at last took the oath,
with this previous explanation, that it onlj' was with reference to the particular laws of that (New Haven)
Colony, and that if anything foreign should present, it should give no offence if he should decline acting."
The Colony at that time was under some excitement about the regicides Goffe and Whalley, who some
months before arrived in New England. In March, 1661, the regicides were more or less at Milford, and in
August, 1661, commenced tlieir stay there of two years, being concealed in a shop belonging to Micah
Tompkins, on his lot (see map, ante page 76), and Benjamin Fenn was one of those who knew their secret
and assisted them. He was no doubt one of those who took the oath in the same manner the next year.
From Milford the regicides went to Pangasset (Derby,) to the home of Edward Riggs, father of Samuel, who
m. Sarah Baldwin, niece of Benjamin Fenn (see ante page 88). Mr. Kigg's home was "pallisaded in to
secure it from the Indians." (Stiles' "Regicides.") President Stiles says that Madame Humphreys, wife of
Rev. Daniel and gr. dau. of Edward Riggs (see ante page 89), used often to speak of it. After the granting of
the charter to Connecticut, Mr. Fenn was in favor of the Union, in promoting which he was prominent.

A considerable biography could be extracted from the Colonial and Town Records, as well as mich inform-
ation as to the succeeding Benjamins, who were nearly all leading men. Capt. Benjamin, b. 1690, with
Noah Baldwin, Jr., was one of those who, in 1750, "declared they have soberly dissented from the estab-
lished Church, in said Milford, praying to be excused from paying ecclesiastical taxes in ^aii town.'
Leave was granted them and such as should enter their names with the Town Clerk as dissenters within
three months, to be freed "during the time they shall regularly attend the worship of God in the separate
congregation.
