Emmerton had ten children, all baptized in the
church at Chebacco, Essex county, Massachu-
setts, which place became known subsequently

(II) Thomas, son of Joseph and Rebecca
(Gould) Emmerton, was baptized at Che-
bacco, Massachusetts, July i, 1744, and died
at Hebron, New Hampshire, about 1832. He
was a seaman and boasted of having eaten
bread in seventeen kingdoms, as an evidence
of his knowledge of the world as gained on
shipboard. Another family tradition illus-
trates his valor as a soldier in the .American
revolution. He was in the ranks of the troops
at Bunker Hill and there received several
buckshot wounds. His own "buck and ball"
being exhausted, he cut two buckshot with
their covering from his leg, and with a shout
of "one shot more" to his comrades, doable
loaded his musket and had another shot at
the advancing redcoats now within the Amer-
ican breastworks. One more and a less glori-
ous tradition is that in the retreat to the camp
at Cambridge after "wading over shoes in
gore" he indulged in a panniken of rum and
the heavy drought caused a troublesome hem-
orrhage from his wounds, and this incident
called forth an order from the surgeons re-
stricting the use of stimulants by the wounded.
He is on the pay rolls as private and corporal
in a company of coast guards stationed at
Gloucester in 1775-76. He sold to the Second
Parish Church of Ipswich, January 5, 1792,
a strip of land containing two square rods, be-
ing about four and a half rods long by seven
feet wide, and the remains a part of the green
in front of the Meetinghouse on the HiH. Like
his brothers he was above average stature,
and of great muscular strength. He married,
January 14, 1768, Lydia, daughter of Westley
and Deborah (Story) Burnham, born in 1745.
They lived in Hebron, New Hampshire; chil-
dren: I. Lydia, 1768, died of fever, April 25,

LUDWIG undertook to emigrate from

Nenderoth, in the Province of
Dietz, Germany, in June, 1753, under the aus-
pices of General Samuel Waldo, and settled
at Broad Bay, in the District of Maine, which
place in 1773 took the name of its promoter
and benefactor, and became known as Waldo-
boro. Joseph Ludwig had with him his wife,
Catherine Kline, and three children, together
with sixty other German families. While in
the English Channel the ship touched at
Cowes, Isle of Wight. There Joseph Ludwig
with several other passengers died, and they
were buried on the coast of France, and the
fatherless family with the other families, con-
tinued their journey, arriving at Broad Bay
on the coast of Maine in September, 1753. and
established a German colony. The widow
Catherine and the two sons had received a
good German education, and the families were
all Lutherans. The three children of Joseph
and Catherine (Kline) Ludwig, were born in
Nenderoth, Germany: Jacob, 1730; Joseph
Henry (q. v.) ; Catherine Elizabeth, date of

trict of Maine, in 1753, and in 1755 married

became prominent in the offices of the colony
and of the town they founded, which was in-
corporated as W'aldoboro, District of Maine,
in 1773, under the direction of the general
court of Massachusetts. The brothers held all
the offices of trust and profit in the gift of
their townsmen, including town clerk, select-
man, for forty years, and both of the brothers
were delegates to the general court of Massa-
chusetts at various times. Jacob appears to

beth Kaler, a member of the colony. He ex-
actly duplicated the public service rendered
by his elder brother, and they were the two
principal men of the time for forty years. It
did not devolve in either the minister, the doc-
tor or the man of great learning in the col-
ony to take part in the government of the
town, as was so common in other towns in
Massachusetts in the early days of their for-
mation, and church and state were widely '\\-

(Ill) James, son of David and Ruth
(Niles) Munroe, was born April 8, 1826, and
is the only surviving member of the family.
He was educated in the common schools of
Minot and North Auburn. In 1839 he entered
the general store of Cyrus S. Packard, his
brother-in-law, and later went to South Paris,
Maine, where he was employed in a general
store as a clerk. In March, 1846, he was ad-
mitted to the firm of Packard & Munroe
(shoe manufacturers), consisting of Cyrus S.
Packard and Noble N. Munroe, and the busi-

of failing eyesight, Mr. C. S. Packard retired

attendant of the Congregational church, and
in numerous ways has contributed to the wel-
fare and advancement of his fellow citizens.
Being a man of sound judgment and keen dis-
crimination, his advice and counsel has often
been sought by young men who were launch-
ing out upon the business world, and the same
was freely given and attended by good re-
sults. Mr. Munroe's career, both as a busi-
ness man and private citizen, is well worthy of
emulation. He married Mary E. Young, born
