(VII) Richard C. Wilcox, whose name opens
this memoir, received his education in part at the
district schools of Xut Plains, in part at Guilford
Academy, ■ where he" attended four terms. He
worked at home until of age, when with aid from
his- father, he bought the farm on which he now
lives, known as "Cloverdale Dairy Farm." a tract
of fifty-six acres formerly owned by Ju;ton Dudley,
and which was then a wilderness. Plere he built
a home in 1870. and since then has erected barns,
outhouses and a dairy ice house, etc.. costing in
all over S12.000. His home and surroundings are
among the finest in Guilford. Until 1804 he carried
on general farming, anil ti'.cn einiiarked in dairying.,
butter-making a specialty, and from time to time



has increased the capacit\- of his business until he
now owns the largest dair\ farm on the shore line.
He manufactures and sells over $1,700 worth of
butter per annum, and sells $r.6oo worth of milk
and cream in the same period. Since his first pur-
chase of land he has bought another farm of 100
acres near the homestead, and has leased several
other farms. He has now (1901) a herd of thirty-
six Jerseys and grade Jersey cows, and a fine Jersey
bull of his own raising. The following sketch of
"Cloverdale Dairy Farm" appeared in the report of
the Dairy Commissioner for 1898:

''The Cloverdale Dairy Farm originated about
six years ago with four cows. The cream from tlie
milk of those cows was sold to the Guilford Cream-
ery for about five months, when it was decided to
make butter in a small way. The butter for the
first year was sold for two cents below the whole-
sale creamery price, because the grocers could not
pay the creamery prices. The last vear nearh"
the entire make has been sold to families at thirty
cents per pound the year around, and in fact, it has
been so the last four years. Mr. Wilcox is now
selling cream, new milk, skim milk and buttermilk,
one of his sons running a wagon daily in the town.
He uses a DeLaval cream separator, which enables
him to have sweet skim milk everv day. His herd
consists of twenty-eight Jerseys and grade Jerseys,
feeding hav and dry food, not having a silo. Mr.
Wilcox manufactured over three tons of butter in
1897, which was nearly all disposed of at prices
above mentioned."

Mr. Wilcox is a man of enterprise and progress,
and takes a leading part all things pertaining to
farming and dairying, and to the town in general.
He is one of the most active members of the State
Creamery Association and of the State Dairy Asso-
ciation. Being a well-read nan, he is well posted
on all the leading events of the day. and has made
a success of life entirely by his own eti'orts, persever-
ance and good- management. Though a stanch
Republican in politics, he is n; party man; in re-
ligious faith he is a member of the First Congrega-
tional Church. Socially he is affiliated with the
Royal Arcanum and Xew England Order of Pro-
tection.

In Branford, Conn.. Oct. 5, 1870, Richard C.
Wilcox was married to Lucy Caroline Page, a native
of that town, and a daughter of Edgar and Jane G.
(Robinson) Page. Four children, all sons, have
blessed this union, their names and dates of birth
being as follows : Lewis Cornelius, Feb. 6, 1872 :
Elmer Ellsworth, Sept. 8. 1874 ; Edgar Almon, Au.g.
18, 1877; and Richard Lester, April 28, 1879,
All are well educated, and all excepting Richard
L. are engaged in their father's dairying and stock-
raising business, proving themselves to be worthy
sons of worthy parents, as well as progressive an;!
advanced farmers. Mrs. Wilcox is a lady of re-
finement, a devoted helpmeet to her husband, a
loving mother, and kind, hospitable neighbor.

JOSEPH P. COLWELL, one of the lea.lin^
business men of Derby, was born in Hartford, April
_>6, 1845, and grew to manhood there. Ilis early
educational advantages were of a very limited sort,
necessity compelling him to begin work at an early
age. While yet a young boy he found employment
in the carpet factory, and the outbreak of the Civil
War found him a servant in the household of Dr.
M. T. Newton. Being too young to enlist, yet de-
sirous of going to the front, he accompanied the
Doctor in the same capacity, and was thus able to
serve three years. On his return from the army he
went to work for the Colt Arms Co., with whom he
remained for about two years. In 1866 he removed
to Derby, which city, as has been said, is still his
home. Here, too, his life for many years was one
of hard and constant toil. In 1887 he entered the
employ of Mr. Thomas Finn, an undertaker, and in
1891 embarked in the same line of business for him-
self, having as a partner Peter Reilly, and the firm
name being Colwell & Reilly. The partnership
was dissolved after three years, and since 1894 jMr.
Colwell has carried on the business alone. Under
his judicious management it has prospered greatly,
and he is now' reaping the well earned reward of a
life of patient industry- and unfailing integrity.

In 1873 •^'f''- Colwell was married to ^liss Mary
Ann Kelledy, of Derby, whose father, Matthew
Kelledy, was born in Ireland. His married life
lasted but twelve years, Mrs. Colwell dying in
1885. Of their union there are three children liv-
ing. Henry, Joseph and Mary. Mr. Colwell is a
Democrat in politics, and in religious faith a Cath-
olic, being a communicant at St. Mary's Church.
For thirty years he has been a member of the
Storm Hose Company, of Derby, and has risen
from, the ranks to hold the position of chief engin-
eer. He is of a genial, generous nature, and
social in his proclivities and mode of life, and is an
influential and honored member of various societies.
Among these organizations are the Knights of Col-
umbus (of which order he is a past master), the
Foresters of America, the Knights of Maccabees,
and the Catholic Benevolent Legion of America.

MRS. CLARA A. BOND, of Woodbridge, be-
longs to an old and honored New Haven county
family, which was founded here by one Richard
Sperry, who came from England about 1660. Her
paternal great-grandfather, Ebenezer Sperry. was a
native of Woodbridge, born July 27, 1773, on what
is known as the Sperry farm and is still owned by
the Sperr\' family. The house standing thereon
was built when he was a child of five years. He
wedded ^lary Newton Booth, also a native of
Woodbridge and a daughter of Walter and Mary
(Newton) Booth. He died Oct. 26, 1855. and she
departed this life Feb. 2, 1865, at the age of eighty-
two years. The\- had two children, of whom Cal-
vin, the grandfather c-i our ^ubiccl. wa-; the \oung-
cst. Eunice married Edward Hine, of Woodbridge,



and to tlu'ni were born three children: Catherine
Mary, who wedded the late Riley Peck, of New-
Haven, and died Nov. 5, 1901. aged seventy-four
years ; Sarah Antoinette, widow of Birdsey Brad-
ley, of Hamden ; and \'elina, wife of Lewis Hitch-
{ cock, of Woodbridge.

! Calvin Sperry was born on the old homestead,

j in December, 1807, and there spent his entire life

' engaged in agricultural pursuits. In addition to

I general farming he was also engaged in the milk

i business for a time, and in his undertakings met

i with fair success. He was a stanch supporter of the

j Republican party and its principles, and was a con-

; sistent member of the Congregational Church of

! Woodbridge. After an honorable and useful career,

he died May 28, 1871, in his sixty-fourth year. He

was three times married, his first wife being Sarah

A. Carrington. daughter of Liverus and Lowdy Car-

; rington. She died Jan. 23, 1853. at the age of forty-

: four years, and he next married Cynthia Riggs, bv

■■■ whom he had one daughter, Eleanor, now deceased.

The third wdfe was Parentha Baklwin. There were

; three children by the first marriage, namely: Elizur

L., father of our subject; Almira E., now Mrs.

'. George Turner, of Woodbridge : and Sarah An-

geline, who died April 19, 1849, at the age of ten

■ years.

Elizur L. Sperry was born Feb. 5, 1831, on the
' old homestead in the town of Woodbridge, where
Mrs. Bond now lives, and he was given the best edu-
; cational advantages, being a graduate of Yale. On
Jan. 16, 1856, he was married in Dudley. Mass.,
to Miss Sarah Loretta Williams, who was born
April 10, 1831, and soon after his marriage he
moved to Vandalia, 111., -where he was engaged in
farming for several years — an occupation he thor-
oughly understood, having been trained to it on
the home farm. From Illinois, he returned to
Woodbridge, and here engaged in general farming.
In i8go he visited a son in Florida, and being
pleased with the climate and State, he decided to
make it his winter home. Accordingly, the follow-
ing year he bought an orange grove of twenty-five
acres, and spent the great part of the time in Florida
until his death Aug. 16, 1901, at the age of seventy
years. Politically he was a stanch Republican, anrl
as one of the prominent and influential men of his
community, he was called upon to fill many of the
town offices, such as selectman, member of the
school board, and for many years justice of the
peace. In his family were four children: (i)
William I., born June 16, 1837, died June 22, 1857.
(2) Clara A., our subject, is mentioned below. (3)
Calvin Waldo, born Oct. 20, 1863. married H.
