"THE FLEMINGTON WATER COMPANY."
Water was introduced so long ago as 1808, in wooden
logs bored through the centre, and was brought from
Coxe's spring, on the property now occupied by Rob-
ert Thatcher. Mr. Bartles says it was in bad repair
in 1822, and, although there had been two plugs con-
structed, â€” one at the court-house and another just
north of the Presbyterian church, â€” the whole affair
had been neglected and left to go to ruin, so that for
many years prior to 1859 the place was without an
adequate water-supply in every dry season.
Two springs, located on John Capner's and J. C.
Hopewell's lands respectively, were largely the supply
in times of scarcity until the water-works were built,
water often being hauled from them when wells and
cisterns gave out. " The Flemington Water Company"
purchased springs about two and a half miles west of
the village, and the first supply was brought in iron
pipes from thence to the reservoir on Mullen Hill.
An additional reservoir, of three times the capacity of
the first constructed, was afterwards built, adjoining
and connected with it. An engine-house was also
built, and a small engine put in, on the west side of
the hill, in Suydam's meadows, to pump water from
Mine Brook and other streams. A six-inch main
was recently laid to Kershow & Chamberlin's mill,
and the necessary power provided to pump the water
from the South Branch. The springs before men-
tioned supply all the water required for nine months
in the year, but for the remaining three months the
South Branch is now had to guard against any defi-
ciency. The first officers of the water company were
Charles Tomlinson, President; George H. Bartles,
Secretary and Treasurer. The first directors were
Bennet Van Syckel, John C. Hopewell, Charles Bar-
ties, William P. Emery, Charles Tomlinson, Alexan-
der Wurts, John L. Janeway, John G. Reading, and
Its officers for 1880 are as follows: William P. Em-
ery, President; C. C. Dunham, Secretary and Treas-
urer. The board of directors is composed of John C.
Hopewell, Charles Bartles, William P. Emery, Alex-
ancler \Vurt-s, Joseph II. Ili-jin-, I'etor I. N'cvius,
John B. Hopewell, A. V. Van Fleet, and C. C. I >un-
In 1842, Samuel Hill, William P. Emery, Abraham
Fulper, Mahloo Fisher, Wilson Forker, John < lapner,
Charles Miller, Tunis Serjeant, Joseph P. lioss, and
their associates, were incorporated ;is the " Fame Fire
< ' pany of Flemington," with a capital stock ii'>t to
exceed s:;ihiii, "which shall he solely ami exclusively
applied to procuring, maintaining, and repairing such
engines, hose, reservoirs of water, ladders, buckets,
fire-hooks, engine-houses, ami other implements ami
machines, and to such other incidental expenses, as
shall to the said company appear best calculated to
secure the property of their fellow-citizens from in-
jury or destruction by fire."
Practically, nothing was done under this charter, 30
that the only protection against lire which the people
of Flemington possessed up to 1862 was the "bucket
brigade." In that year certain private individuals
who iliil not desire to have the place at the mercy of
the flames at every chance conflagration purchased a
steam ftre-enjrine ami erected a commodious two-Story
engine-house. This was an entirely voluntary action
on their pari. The name- of these public benefactors
arc engraven upon a plate on the engine, and are a-
follows: "The FIcniiiiL'toii Water Company. The

Some five or six years since the purchasers and
owners of the engine property offered to donate the
same to the township authorities provided they
wouM purchase a sufficient quantity of good hose to
take the place of that which was old and unservice-
able. This oiler wa- accepted, and the engii
were transferred to their guardianship. The engine-

court-house, on Lyceum street. Tin- second story,
used as an assembly room by the lire-company and
the hoard of highway commissioners, is carpeted and
neatly furnished, the furniture being the gift of Dr.
J. II. Schenck, of Philadelphia.
Under the "Act to regulate the business of Hank-
ing," approved Feb. 27, 1850, the " Trad. -

official changes have been the election of John L.
Jones to the presidency of the hank in October, 1877,
and of Peter I. Nevius to the vice-presidency in No-
vember of the same year.
The present officers are : President, John L. Jones ;

The bank is located in Rea's building, on Main
" The Hunterdon County Savings-Bank and Trust
Company" was established in 1876, under a charter
from the State, and, although most of its officers and
managers are also interested in the "Flemington Na-
tional Bank," and its business is transacted in the
banking-house of that institution, it is an entirely
separate corporation. It commenced operations Oct.
6, 1876, at which date the first deposit was received.
The result of this financial enterprise demonstrates
that a savings institution in Flemington can hardly
get more than a nominal business. After over three
years of passive existence it voted, in May, 1880, to
discontinue the payment of interest after July 1st
following, and to retire its business as fast as practi-
cable. This is being done, and the bank will soon be
numbered among " the things that were."
Various societies of a literary, social, or secret char-
acter have from time to time been instituted in Flem-
ington, have flourished for a season, and have died
One of the associations of the " old days" was the
" Flemington Vigilant Society," for the detection of
thieves and robbers. It was in existence in 1824, and
no doubt was organized several years prior to that
date. Its officers in 1824-25 included Thomas Cap-
ner, President and Treasurer ; Charles Bonnell, Sec-
retary ; Capt. Jonathan Higgins, Thomas Capner,
Neal Hart, Samuel D. Sutphin, and Andrew Van
Fleet, Directors. The " pursuers" at that time were
William R. Prall, Samuel Higgins, William Marsh,
Peter Quick, Robeson Rockhill, James Taylor, Thomas
W. Reading, Jesse H. Landis, Capt. J. Higgins, and
Charles Bonnell. It had an existence until four or
five years ago, but for the last ten years of its life it
was a mere matter of form.
The only societies, other than those of a religious
character, now to be found in the village are the
lodges of the Masons and Odd-Fellows, and a re-
cently-organized post of the Grand Army, sketches of
which are herewith given.
" Hiram Lodge, No. 25, F. and A. M.," was the first
Masonic organization of Flemington, and the second
established in Hunterdon County.* From the min-
utes of the Grand Lodge of New Jersey (August ses-
sion, 1811) we ascertain that a petition, received
" from Bro. Ephraim F. Ogden, and seven others, all
Master Masons, praying that a warrant may be
granted to form a new lodge, to be held at Fleming-
ton, to be called Hiram Lodge, No. 25," was read, and
it was resolved " that the prayer of the petition be
granted and that a warrant do issue accordingly."!
At a meeting of the grand body held Aug. 11, 1811,
at Trenton, this lodge was represented by Ephraim F.
Ogden, W. M., John Cherry, S. W., and Thomas Gor-
don, J. W. The first return contains seven names,
and is for November, 1811. Meetings were held at
Flemington on or before full moon on Mondays.
Their last return to the Grand Lodge was dated Nov.
13, 1820, signed by Samuel Hill, Secretary, and con-
tains the names of James Herring, W. M. (who was
a Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of New York,
and a very influential and prominent man there in
his time) ; John Bush, S. W. ; Dr. William Geary,J
J. W. ; John T. Blackwell, Treas. ; John Maxwell,
S. D. ; Jacob Moore, J. D. ; Daniel Case, Henry M.
Kline (the father of Miller Kline), Daniel P. Shrope,
Henry B. Poole, Joseph P. Chamberlin, Henry H.
Schenck, Abrm. R. Sutphin, Andrew Wilson, and
Although few, if any, meetings were held after
1820, its warrant, jewels, etc., were not taken by the
Grand Lodge until after November, 1826, as appears
by the "Proceedings" of that date, p. 240.
" Darcy Lodge, No. 37, F. and A. M.," held its first
meeting May 24, 1855, under dispensation of the
Grand Lodge of the State. Its charter bears date of
Jan. 9, 1856, and its charter members were John A.
Partridge, Edmund Perry,jS John C. Coon, George F.
Crater,? Jacob S. C. Pittinger, John P. Rittenhouse,
Justus Leesey, John S. Hockenhury, and William
Nichols. The first Worshipful Master was John A.
Partridge, in 1855-56. His successors to the present
time have been John F. Schenck, 1857; Edmund
Perry, 1858; J. Alfred Gray, 1859; J. S. C. Pittinger,
1860; J. A. Gray, 1861 ; Jacob Young, 1862 ; John F.

cumbrances therefrom by the payment of periodical
instalments, and also to accumulate a fund to be re-
turned to the members who do not obtain advances
when each share shall become worth $100.

In 1805 an infantry company called the " Fleming-
ton Volunteers" was formed. In September, 1807, all
the members of this company volunteered to be ready
to march at a moment's notice, whenever called by
Fifty years ago, and over, the martial spirit of the
Flemington people found vent through several com-
panies, among which were the "Uniform Infantry
Company," commanded by Capt. Voorhees, of which
O. H. Blackwell was " orderly," and Peter I. Case's
troop, the "Fifth" of the Hunterdon squadron, of
which John Wyckoff acted as first sergeant. Later
came the " Flemington Grays," of which H. S. Stryker
was orderly in 1840.
The meeting of the Hunterdon brigade of militia
at Flemington on June 9, 1830, was not only a notice-
able event, but the first parade of the kind in the
county deemed of sufficient moment to receive men-
tion by the press. The four regiments were com-
manded respectively by Cols. Parks, Stires, Van Kirk,
and Clark. The several troops of cavalry composing
the Hunterdon squadron were under command of
Maj. Mcllvaine. Infantry companies ("Phcenix,"
" Blues," and " Guards") belonging to the independent
battalion of Trenton, and Capt. Gaston's spirited
troop of Somerset cavalry, were also present. His
Excellency Governor Vroom and suite, Maj. -Gen.
Stryker and suite, several of the field- and staff-officers
of the Somerset brigade, and Brig.-Gen. Williamson,
of the Warren brigade, graced the occasion with their
presence. The review and inspection were highly
creditable to the Hunterdon troops.
" When the national flag was insulted at Sumter,
and the whole North was aroused, Flemington re-
sponded with both men and money. The first
company of three months' volunteers was com-
manded by Capt. George A. Allen, and left in May,
1861, as Co. H of the Third Regiment. Rev. John
L. Janeway, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of
this village, was chaplain. The farewell service, held
in the Presbyterian church, was solemn and impres-
sive. These troops were the first that reached Wash-
ington from the North. (An account of its services,
with a list of its members, may be found in Chapter
X. of the General History in this volume, commencing
at page 110, and on following pages sketches of the
other companies raised in Flemington.)
Rev. Mr. Janeway, of Flemington, also served as
chaplain of the Thirtieth Regiment.
FLEMINGTON IN 1880.
Since 1785, when Flemington became the county-
seat, the growth of the place has been, although slow,
steadily progressive. The business incident to the
seat of justice, gave then, and will always give, an
added importance to the little settlement, now grown
to be a considerable village, embracing a present
(1880) population of 1754 souls. Its activity and
wealth were stimulated by the opening of "The
Flemington Railroad" to Lambertville in 1854, and
still further by the building of the "South Branch
Railroad" to this point in 1862. Since then its pros-
perity and advancement have been assured. The
beauty of its situation none can dispute, while its fine
churches, good school, and business enterprise, with
its healthful climate and ample supply of gas and
water, combine with the high moral tone, intellectual
culture, and law-abiding character of its people to
give it an enviable name among the villages of this
State. There are few places of its size that possess
at once the rural beauty, the repose and quiet, and
the conveniences of the metropolis in so great a de-
gree as Flemington, in which all seem happily blended.
And in that distant future for which we write we ven-
ture to prophesy that Flemington will still stand in the
fore-front of the villages (perchance boroughs) of the
