Valley, where for a number of years he carried on a garden
farm, always driving to Syracuse on Sunday with his family
to attend the Church of Christ, on East Onondaga Street.

"After most of his children were married, he again
bought a farm in Pompey, remaining until the last child
was gone, when he and his wife removed to the village of
Manlius, where he spent the last years of his active life.
Here in March 4th, 1882, he died,leaving his wife and seven
children to mourn the loss of a wise and loving husband and
father; one with whom no sacrifice was to great to make for
the advancement of his children in education and religious
privileges; one who had brought up his children in the
'nurture and admonition of the Lord.' In this he was
nobly aided by the mother, who was a rare woman. ' Their
children rise up and call them blessed'."

Nichols of Lafayette, N. Y., and d. 10 Feb., 1841.

In the beautiful cemetery near the village of Lafayette,
there stands a fine marble slab, upon which is represented a
weeping willow tree; beneath it a monument with die and
monolith; standing beside which, is the figure of a man
with one hand to his eyes as if weeping. Beneath the whole,
is the following inscription: —

"Beneath this monument
lies all that could die of
Emeline S.
wife of
Charles Nichols,
and her infant.
She died Feb. 10, 1841,
aged 22 years & 20 days. "
"I stand among the dark gray stones
No living thing is near.
Beneath me are the mouldering bones
Of her, I loved most dear."

6o THE EMMONS FAMILY SEVENTH GENERATION

The following is copied from The History of Kane
County, 111.:—

" Leonidas Z. Baker, Aurora, 111., was born in Washing-
ton Co., N. Y., December 24th, 1817; when eight years old,
his father disposed of his farm, and moved to Cortland
County. Leonidas remained on the old homestead until
1844; he acquired a good common school education through
his own efforts, and at seventeen years of age commenced
teaching in the district school, and taught for seven years.
In 1841 he started in the mercantile business, and was
very successful; in 1843 he married Miss Nancy A. Emmons
at Lafayette, Onondaga Co., N. Y. ; in the spring of 1844 he
came to Illinois, starting on the 23d day of May and reach-
ing Chicago on the 23d day of June. They located three
miles west of Aurora, here he bought 160 acres; for twenty
years he followed farming; the first were years of hardship
and toil, but time brought him a competence.

"Mr. Baker was never a politician, and never ran for
office. He was a member of the Church of Christ, and a
truly Christian man. In 1865 he went to Minnesota for his
health; he returned in 1867, and became book-keeper for
F. B. Rice, a hardware merchant. He continued in his
employ for three and a half years. For many years he
suffered with Hay Asthma, and in 1870 was attacked with
Typhoid Pneumonia, which resulted fatally, and after a
short illness he was laid at rest in the beautiful cemetery of
Spring Lake. Thus passed away a man whom all respected ;
six children were born, of whom two are living, the others
dying in infancy."

AND HER Three Gexerations, Lebo, Kansas



THE EMMONS FAMILY SEVENTH GENERATION 6 1

Mrs. Hoyt was the youngest of her father's eighteen
children, and the ninth by his second wife. Her father died
when she was eleven years of age; she attended the public
school and the academy at Lafayette; the death of her
mother in 1841, obliged her to take upon herself the duties
of a housekeeper for an aged and crippled relative, and the
care of an afflicted sister, which she faithfully performed
until her marriage in 1848. In the autumn of that year
they removed to Illinois, and located on a farm near Aurora,
forty miles south-west of Chicago, where they resided seven
years.

Mr. Nichols having accumulated a competency retired
from active labor, rented his farm and moved into the
village of Aurora, where he erected for himself a new and
beautiful residence, which he completed and occupied in
June 1855. He was not destined to enjoy this home for
only a short time, for on the 10th day of the following
November, he died of typhoid fever.

In 1857 the widow married Dr. Hoyt, a dentist, and
the son of a Congregational minister of Vermont. The
Dr. being of a roving disposition, their life for a few years
was very unsettled, until 1862 when they separated, and
for several years she has had no knowledge of him and
believes him dead.

In 1872 she went to live with her eldest daughter, and
in 1877 accompanied her to Kansas, settling near Lebo, in
the southern part of Osage county, where she still resides,
and in her 81st year still follows out her motto: "It is
better to wear out than rust out."

The following, penned by her own hand, was sent the
author in answer to questions regarding her father's record
as a soldier of the Revolution:

Lebo, Oct. 12, 1902.
"Mr. E. N. Emmons,
My dear nephew:

"I am surprised that a great grandson of my Father does not know tliat
he was a revolutionary Soldier. I remember of his going to Pennsylvania
to get witnesses to prove that he was a soldier. My mind's eye goes back to
that day when pa sat in his gig and see just how he looked. He drove a
beautiful bay; she was ready to start and did not want to wait for any good-
bves.

"I suppose he got what he went after for he surely got a pension a year
or two before he died; said he wish he hadn't, for it was more trouble than
it was worth.

"Father was only 16 when he enlisted. I do not know what year of
the war it was, but think he remained in the army until the close
of the war. I believe Father was 5 feet 7 inches in height, black hair
one black eye and one blue one. All the children have black eyes as far as
I know. Father served in Colonel Hutchen's Connecticut militia; he served
under Gen. Lafayette, and was introduced to him as one of his men in about
the year 1824 or 1826; he was at one time out of sight of land 3 months, etc' '

"My father resided at Christian Hollow (now Tully

Michigan — then spoken of as the far west — in search of a
home; not finding anything to suit, he returned to Chautau-
qua Co., N. Y., and purchased a heavily timbered tract of
wild land, and for two years was preparing a 'cage for the

bird.' He found his bird in the vicinity of New York Mills;
returning after his marriage to his new home in the town of
Arkwright. Ten children were born to them here. In 1855
his wife died, full of the Christian's faith; she being a zealous
member of the M. E. Church.

"After marrying his second wife in 1S57, he sold the
old homestead to his two eldest sons, and removed to Silver
Creek in the same county, and bought a small farm on
which he resided until the fall of 1 865 when he sold out and
purchased a farm near Angola, where he lived five years;
then sold again and settled on a farm at North Evans, Erie
Co., N. Y., upon which he staid seven years, and then re-
tired from active life, making his home with his son Charles
at the latter place, until his death in 1890, and where his
widow died in 1897."

Deacon Emmons is the last living representative of a
family of eleven children; a life long resident of his native
town; a member of the Baptist Church, for fifty years,
having for more than twenty held the office of a deacon.

He is a direct descendant, on his mother's side, of
Richard Ely, one of the early settlers of Connecticut, who
married in 1664, a sister of Colonel Fenwick, of whom the
American Cyclopaedia treats as follows: —

"George Fenwick, proprietor of part of Connecticut, died in 1657. He
came to America in 1636 to take charge of the plantation of Saybrook, so
