(\T) General George Henry Nye was born
at Hallowell, ]\laine, February 24, 1828. He
adopted his mother's maiden name, Nye. He
was educated in the public schools of his na-
tive town. Fie began work in a cotton mill at
Hallowell, and later served on a steamboat ply-
ing between Boston and Portland. After a
few years he was employed in a cotton mill at
Brunswick, Maine, and later worked at farm-
ing a year at Rome, Maine, then returned to
Lewiston and worked at his trade in the cotton
mill. He won promotion, and when the civil
war broke out was an overseer. He left this
position, in which his wages were five dollars
a day, to enlist as a private when the call for
volunteers came. His pay as a soldier was $11
a month, but the financial sacrifice he under-
took cheerfully, as well as the hardship and
danger of the service. He enlisted April 20,
1861, in Company K, First Maine Regiment
of Infantry, for three months : as he was com-
missioned previous to the company being mus-
tered in, he forfeited a bounty of one hundred
dollars, and was commissioned second lieuten-
ant May 3, 1 86 1. At the expiration of his
term of enlistment he raised a company for the
Union service, and on C)ctober 4, 1861, was
commissioned captain of Company K, Tenth
Maine Regiment. With this regiment he took
part in the battles of Winchester, Cedar Moun-
tain, Rappahannock. Sulphur Springs, South
Mountain and Antietam. At the end of two
years his company was mustered out of ser-
vice, and he raised another for the Twenty-
ninth Maine Regiment, enlisting the men for
three years, and was given Company K. He
was commissioned captain on November 13,
1863; on October 18, 1864, promoted to major,
and on December 20, 1864, to colonel. He was
breveted brigadier-general October 28, 1865,
and major-general, to rank from March 13,
1863. The Twenty-ninth regiment served in
Louisiana, and took part in the engagements
at Sabine Cross Roads, Pleasant Hill, Cain
River Crossing, and later in Virginia at Ope-
quan. Fisher Hill and Cedar Creek. He was
badly wounded in the battle of Cedar Moun-
tain, but was able to take his place at the head
of his regiment at the Grand Review at the
close of the war. He was wounded in the
mouth at Cedar Creek. The official report of



the battle of Cedar Mountain states that he
was struck three times, but was not off duty a
day in consequence. At the close of the war
he was stationed with his regiment at Savan-
nah, Georgia, then at Georgetown, South
Carolina, also at Hilton Head, South Carolina,
and finally at New York Cit"\', where he and
his command were mustered out of service
June 29, 1866, at Hart's Island, (jcneral Nye
was probably the only man to enlist as a pri-
vate and rise during the war to the rank of
major-general.

At the close of the war he returned to Lew-
iston, Maine, and took up his duties as over-
seer in the mill. Soon afterward he was ap-
pointed agent of the Dwight Mills in Chicopee,
Massachusetts. During the five years in which
he had charge of this property, three large
mill buildings were erected. The next five
years he spent in Montreal as agent of a mill
in the vicinity, and there had charge of the
erection and equipment of a large new mill.
He was agent for the next five years of a mill
company at Laurel, Maryland, and again had
charge of the building of new mills. With
the purpose of providing for the education of
his children he returned to Massachusetts, and
accepted a position as inspector for the Mu-
tual American Liability Company. Upon as-
suming this position he purchased a home in
South Natick, Middlesex county, Massachu-
setts, near Wellesley College, where he resided
most of the time until 1884, when he came to
Boston. During his connection with the com-
pany named, he traveled extensively in New
England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl-
vania, Delaware, JMaryland, Ohio, and other
eastern states, covering a period of over twenty
years luitil 1895, when he resigned, this ending
his active career. He died Octolier 22, 1908,
at the Dunbar, Roxbury district, Boston,
where he had his home for some years.

General Nye was made a Mason in Bruns-
wick. Elaine, in 1854. He was afterward a
charter member of a blue lodge in Montreal,
which he was active in organizing. He was
a Royal Arch Mason ; member of Council,
Royal and Select Masters, and of the various
bodies of the Scottish Rite Masonry to the
33d degree, which was conferred upon him in
October, 1896, and at the time of his death he
was one of the oldest Masons in the country,
having been a member of the order for fifty-
four years. He never lost his interest in mili-
tary afifairs. and when the Spanish-.American
war broke out, he tendered his services to the
government, but on account of age he was not
accepted. He was a member of the Minute

latter he joined at the same time as Captain
Sigsbee, Admiral Dewey, General Harrison,
General Arthur. Major ^IcKinley and others,
in Washington. Afterward he was trans-
ferred to the Massachusetts Commandery, in
which he was prominent. In politics he was a
Republican, and for many years was active in
political life. He was a campaign speaker of
much ability and in various campaigns spoke,
chiefly in the southern states in company with
John P. Gorman and others. He was a promi-
nent member of the Grand Army, and in 1904

"Os" as a root word implica-
OSGOOD tive of Deity, has made for it-
self a firm place in Osgood
and other surnames which are as old as the
Saxon language. John, Christopher and Wil-
liam Osgood, who do not seem to have been
relatives, though they and their families were
closely associated, settled in Massachusetts
Bay Colony within a short time after the set-
tlement of the Puritans at Plymouth.

(I) John Osgood, born in Wherwell, Hamp-
shire county, England, July 23, 1595, died in
Andover, ^lassachusetts, October 24, 1651. He
came from Andover, England, and settled in
Andover. Massachusetts, before 1645. He
had been at Ipswich and Newbury before his
settlement at Andover. John Osgood was one
of the petitioners who had liberty to begin a
plantation at Hampton in 1638. On a leaf in
the town records a list is written in an ancient
hand, without date, but probably when most of
the settlers were living, and may be considered
correct : "The names of all the householders



in order as they came to town: Mr. Brad-
street, John Osgood, etc." So, John Osgood
was the second settler in Andover. He was a
freeman in 1639, one of the founders of the
church in Anclover, October, 1645, and the
first representative of the town in the general
court in 165 1. His will was dated April 12,
1650, and probated November 25, 1651. He
was married in luigland. His wife Sarah sur-
vived him more than fifteen years, and died
April 8, 1667. Their children were: Sarah,
John. Mary, Elizabeth, Stephen and Hannah.
Abbott, in "The History of Andover," men-
tions two more, Christopher and Thomas.

(H) Stcjihen, son of John and Sarah Os-
good, was born in 1638 at Ipswich or New-
bury, Massachusetts, and died of small pox,
January 15, 1690-91. Fie took the oath of
freeman at Andover, May 19, 1669. On Oc-
tober 24, 1663, he married Mary Hooker; they
had five children, the eldest and youngest of
whom died in infancy. The children were:
Stephen, born March 11. 1665. died October
I, 1667; Hooker, mentioned in the nexl para-
graph; Stephen, August 16, 1670; Joseph,
June I, 1673; and Mary, December 23, 1677,
died March 4, 1678.

(III) Hooker, second son of Stephen and
Mary (Hooker) Osgood, was born at And-
over, Massachusetts, August 24, 1668, and
died at Lancaster, January 29, 1748. He was
a Sadler by trade, and moved from Andover to
Lancaster about the time of his marriage.
Whether at this time he became a permanent
settler is not known; but in 1710 and 1714 he
bought land in that town. In 1715 he was one
of the selectmen of Lancaster, and the next
year he held a license to sell liquor. He was
very active in town affairs. On April 26,
1892, he married Dorothy Wood, and they had
ten children, seven sons in succession, and then
three daughters. It is somewhat remarkable
that all of these ten children lived to marry
and rear families. The children were : Hooker,
born Alarch 26, 1693 ; Joshua, September 2,
1694; Jonathan, September 16, 1696; David,
October 8, 1698; Benjamin, whose sketch fol-
lows; Moses, 1702; Aaron, 1706: Dorothy,
1707, married Josiah Whitcomb, of Lancaster;
Elizabeth. 1709, married Thomas Sawyer;
Sarah, 1710, married John Divoll, of Lancas-
ter.

(IV) Benjamin, fifth son of Hooker and
Dorothy (Wood) Osgood, was born at Lan-
caster, Massachusetts, May 21, 1700, and died
at Keene, New Hampshire, October 29, 1789.
About 1725 he married Hannah Divoll, and
thev had six children, all of whom lived to

and died at Keene, New Hampshire, in 1808.
He was originally a farmer in Lancaster, but
accompanied his father on the latter's removal
to Keene, and made his permanent home there.
He united with the church in Keene in 1767,
and was chosen selectman in 1775. He was
probably the Benjamin Osgood taken prisoner
at Fort Dummer by the Indians in 1748. On
December 5, 1753, he married Mary Carter,
and they had seven children, all of whom livecl
to mature years, and many of them to great

New Hampshire, in 1768, and died at Still-
water, New York, October 16, 1852. He was
a farmer, and lived for some years at Eaton,
Canada East, but spent his last days with his
son Barnanl at Stillwater. Alwut 1793 he
