In their family were eight children, whose names
and dates of birth were as follows: Sarah, Dec.
14, 1744; Hannah, March 2, 1747; Stephen, July
17, 1751; Lydia, March 17, 1754; Patience, Nov.
28, 1756: Daniel, .\pril 10, 1759; John, June 30,
1 761 ; and Jesse, March 12, 1764.
Jesse Humiston, just mentioned, was born and
reared on his father's farm in Cheshire, and after
his marriage located on a farm in West Cheshire,
where he spent the remainder of his life, devoting
his time and attention to agricultural pursuits. He
was well known and highly respected. He died
March 12, 1832, and was laid to rest in the family
cemetery, in Cheshire. He married Lois Doolittle,
a daughter of Amos Doolittle, and she dc[)arted this
life Feb. 8, 1847, -^^ ''^^ age of eighty-four years.
Politically he was a \\ liig, and religiously a mem-
ber of the Episcopal Church. His children were
Daniel, our subject; Lois, who died at the age of
twenty; Jesse A., who married Eliza Preston,
daughter of Reuben Preston ; Alma, who married
Samuel Hull, of Cheshire; and John, who married
Rhoda Nichols, of \\'olcott, Connecticut.
.At the age of three years Daniel Humiston re-
ceived a physical injury which it was thought
would unfit him for the active work of farm life,
hence it was determined to prepare him for a pro-
fession. He pursued a thorough course in the
Episcopal Academy of his native town, from which
he graduated at the age of seventeen, his scholar-
ship being highly commended by his teachers and
classmates. His ailment having, meantime, been
much alleviated, he resolved to engage in farming,
to which occupation he was always partial. He in-
dustriously pursued that vocation as his life work,
and was rewarded with a fair measure of success,,
owning and successfully operating a tract of 165
acres of land in the western i>art of Cheshire, upon
which he made extensive improvements. He died
upon his farm and was laid to rest in the Cheshire
cemetery. He was an active and prominent mem-
ber of St. Peter's Episcopal parish, served as vestry-
man of the church for some years and for many
years previous and up to his death was parish clerk.
Politically Daniel I lumiston was first a Whig and
later a Re]nihlican. He was a modest, unobtrusive
man, with no inclination for public life, but his
townsmen, appreciating his good qualities, called
him to serve in various offices, and in 1840 elected
him as one of their representatives in the State
Legislature. He also filled the office of selectman
in Cheshire. Those who were most intimately as-
sociated with him speak in untjualified terms of his
sterling integrity, his honor in business and his
fidelity to all the duties of public and jirivatc life.
He was faithful to his church, to his country and
to his friends, and in his home was a most ex-
emplary husband and father. His death occasioned
deep regret throughout the community, and Che-
shire thereby lost one of its most valued citizens.
On June 16, 1816. Daniel Humiston wedded Juli-
ana Ives, a native of Cheshire, and a daughter of
Jared and Achsah (Doolittle) Ives. She was a
lady of culture and refinement, an excellent wife
and mother, and a consistent member of the Epis-
copal Church. She died Dec. 23, 1833, and was laid
to rest in St. Peter's Church cemetery. In the
familv were three children : Chauncev Ives, who re-

sided on the home farm viiitil liis death, Nov. ii,
1884 : John D..\vho was engaged in business in New
York, and there died Jan. icj, 1867; and Julia A.,
the only survivor. ^liss Julia resides in West
Cheshire, and is beloved and respected by all who
know her. With a charity that knows no limit, she
seems to find her greatest hap[)iness in doing good
to those around her. Even the dumb animals have
received her attention, and for them she placed a
watering tank in West Cheshire ; she gave to the vil-
lage the town clock ; a receiving vault in Cheshire
cemetery ; and many other things. She takes a deep
interest in educational affairs, is highly intellectual
and cultured, and is quite poi)ular with the public.

Institute of Suffield. He started life for himself
at an early age, his first work being the burnishing
of spoons at the munificent salary of forty-five cents
per gross, ^\'hen not employed in the shop he
worked at home on the farm. After a time he
was taken into the German-silver shop at Meriden
as a buffer, and then was made a forger of fine
wares. For some years he was employed in a
Britannia spoon factory, and for three and a half
years worked for Steadman & Clark, with whom he
thoroughly learned the tin and sheet iron trade.
For ten years he was a journeyman worker at this
trade, and in 1853 came to Yalesville to take a
place as a die sinker, a trade he mastered for him-
self, and one in which he takes a high standing.

gradually increased to $2,000 per year. In i860

work with G. I. Mix. For twenty-five years he was
steadily at work as die sinker, but for the last twelve
years he has lived a retired life, spending his leisure
hours in the making of violins, in which he seems
to have the touch of a genius. Violins that come
from his hands give forth the sweetest tones, and
his name is familiar to all who love this king of

reading. Latin, French and other languages have
been mastered by him, and he is familiar with clas-
sical lore. In politics he is a Rei)ublican. and was

campaign. Mr. Bull has been assessor of the town,
and holds the unstinted confidence of his fellow
citizens. He began life as a poor boy, and by in-
dustry, economy and forethought has become
well-to-do. Mr. Bull has never married, and has
lived a life of kindly deeds, finding delight and
companionship, not only in the world of l)ooks. but
in the great open world of nature around him.
