A Matthew Kelsey resided in Hadley, married
Sarah , and had a son Elijah, born Feb-
ruary 28, 1762, the only Kelsey mentioned as a
resident of the town by Judd : was doubtless
related to Seymour Kelsey. Seymour Kelsey
lived at Marlborough, Vermont, in later life,

(VII) Henry James, son of Levi Davey
Kelsey, was born in Marlborough, Vermont,
August 1. 1850, and was educated there in the
district schools. He began at the early age of
twelve years to do a man's share of the farm
work. He worked in the woods in winter,
lumbering for his father, and in summer burned
charcoal, until he was about twenty-seven years
old. He then left home and went to South
( harlestown for a year, and thence to Clare-
rnont, New Hampshire, where he learned the
business of soap making. He left Claremont
after about two years, and engaged in busi-

ness in Westfield, Massachusetts, on his own
account, buying a rendering plant and con-
tinuing the manufacture of soap there. After
fifteen years he had to give up the rendering
business on account of legislation restricting
the business in cities and towns. In addition
to the manufacture of soap, Mr. Kelsey is en-
gaged in farming on an extensive scale, and
has a large dairy. He had the misfortune in
October, 1901, to lose by fire his house, barns,
farm implements and some of his stock. The
loss was total, as his insurance had expired
shortly before the fire. He rebuilt his house
and barns immediately, however. In politics
Mr. Kelsey is a Republican, and in religion a
Baptist. He married, March 28, 1882, Azella
Whitman, born May 31, 1853, at North Adams,

ment of the farm. 3. Harland P., October 9,
1890. 4. Hugh D.. September 8, 1892. 5.
Harold W., June 9, 1895.

This surname was more often
WHITMAN written Wightman in Eng-
land, but most of the families
at the present time spell it Whitman. Tradi-
tion says that the American family is descended
from Edward Wightman, who was burned for
heresy at Litchfield, England. April 11, 1612.
He was said to have been the last to suffer
death for religious liberty. Valentine Whit-
man was an immigrant, and settled at Provi-
dence. George Whitman, mentioned below,
may have been a brother, and was undoubtedly
a relative of Valentine.

( I ) George Whitman, immigrant ancestor,
was born in June, 1632, and died in January,
1722. He settled in Kingstown, Rhode Island,
and in 1669 he with others was arrested and
kept in jail at Hartford for some time because
they owned allegiance to Rhode Island. He
took the oath of allegiance May 20, 1671, and
was admitted a freeman May 6, 1673. He
was one of the petitioners to the King, July 29,
1679, praying that he "would put a stop to
these differences about the government thereof,
which hath been so fatal to the prosperity of
the place ; animosities still arising in people's
mind as they stand affected to this or that
government." He was constable in 1686, on
the grand jury in 1687, and for some years a
member of the town council. In 1687 he was
on the tax list. On February 19, 1712, he and

iii— T.6



seventeen others bought seven thousand acres
of vacant lands in Xarragansett ordered sold
by the assembly. He and his wife Elizabeth
sold to William Gardner twenty-seven and a
half acres in Boston Neck, for one hundred
and three pounds. His will was proved Feb-
ruary 12, 1722, his sons Daniel and Valentine
being executors, and his friend John Jones,
overseer. He bequeaths to son Valentine lands
bought of Joseph Dolover ; to son Daniel part
of land on Great Plain; to son George the
farm on which the son dwelt ; to son John the
three hundred acres on which he dwelt; to
son Samuel, money ; to daughters Elizabeth
J ruling, .Mice Wait, Sarah Peterson, twenty
pounds each; to grandson George, son of
Daniel, ten pounds, gun, wearing clothes, linen,
chest brought from England and great Bible ;
to two children of his son Daniel fifty shillings
a year ; also twenty shillings to the congrega-
tion to buy wine to celebrate the Lord's Supper.
In a codicil he gives other property to his
son Daniel. He married Elizabeth LIpdike,
born 1644, daughter of Gilbert and Katherine
(Smith) Cpdike. Children: I. Elizabeth, born
July 26, 1664, died 1756; married Alexander
Huling. 2. Alice, born December 29, 1666;

tine, born April 16, 1681, died June 9, 1747;
married, February 17, 1703, Susannah Holmes.
( II ) George (2), son of George ( 1 ) Whit-
man, was born in Kingstown, January 8, 1673,
and died in 176 1. He settled in Warwick,
Rhode Island. He was admitted a freeman in
1 7 16, and in 1724 was deputy to the assembly.
He bought one hundred acres of land in East
Greenwich, December 22, 1719. His will, dated
September 1, 1759, with codicil March 1, 1760,
proved January 15, 1 761, bequeathed to wife,
children and grandchildren. Besides land and
other more valuable parts of his estate he made
some smaller bequests of interest. He gave to
son John, iron kettle and coat with "plate but-
tons ;" to son George, iron pot and andirons ; to
grandson Elisha Wightman, jacket and "plate

(Ill ) Samuel, son of George (2) Whitman,
was born in Rhode Island, about 1700; mar-
ried, November 11. 1724. Margaret Gorton.
He died before 1759. Children, born probably
at Warwick : 1. Samuel. 2. Benjamin, settled
in Foster. Rhode Island. 3. George, mentioned
below. 4. Asa.

( IV) George (3), son of Samuel Whitman,
was born about 1740-50, at Warwick, Rhode

Island. lie married (first) Coombs;

(second) Kingsley. He removed to

North Adams, Massachusetts. Children: 1.
George, appears to have settled in Exeter,
Rhode Island. 2. Caleb, went to North Adams.
3. Stephen, mentioned below. Probably others.
[According to the census of 1790, George
Whitman, probably the father, was living at
North Kingston, and had in his family three
sons under sixteen and four females. Another
George, probably the son, was living at Exeter,
Rhode Island, having a wife but no children.
George Whitman married, October 3. 1790, at
Exeter, Hannah Huling Abbie Chase (sic). A
daughter Elizabeth was born to George and
Bridget Whitman at Exeter, September 23,
1752; possibly this record belongs to this family
also. The lack of both town and family records
makes it impossible to give the complete list of
children for these two generations last men-
tioned]. Children of second wife: Reuben,
lives at North Adams; Mrs. Frank Robinson,
of North Adams.

(V) Stephen, son of George (3) Whitman,
was born in Rhode Island, about 1780-90. He
was a son of the first wife. He removed to
North Adams with the family, and later in life
went west. He died in Lake county, Illinois.
He married Susan Ray, who died at North
Adams. Children, bom at North Adams: 1.
Ira. February 4. 1820; mentioned below. 2.
Maria. 3. George. 4. Amy Ann. 5. Simeon.

unnamed. Most of the children settled in the
west.

( VI ) Ira. son of Stephen Whitman, was
burn February 4, 1820, at North Adams, and



is living at Bernardston, Massachusetts, Not-
withstanding his advanced age, he enjoys good
health and all his faculties. He was educated
in his native town and learned the trade of
shoemaker, which he followed for many years.
In his later years he returned to farming, locat-
ing at his present home in Bernardston. He
married. March 28. 185 1 . at North Adams,
Hannah I'nderwood, born at Marlborough,
Vermont, June 1, 1831, died at North Adams,

Hampshire. 5. Grace C, born August 16, i860 ;
married Dexter Whitcomb ; lives in Charles-
town, New Hampshire. 6. Ira, Jr.. died young.



The surname Hewes is identical
HEWES with Hughes, which is from a

personal name — Hugh, meaning
a guest, a stranger. It signifies affability, and
in A. D. 900 King Alfred used it in the sense
of comfort. Various other surnames are de-
rived from Hugh — Huget, Hewit, FitzHugh,
meaning, as does Hughes or Hewes, simply son
of Hugh; Huggin, flicks, Hiccock, Huggins,
Huggett and Hutchins also derived from Hugh ;
Huse is another spelling of Hughes. The
Hughes family is of great antiquity in Scot-
land. Wales and England, and traces its ances-
try to several Welsh princes, among whom is
Gwarthbold Mawr, Prince of Cardugan. The
principal coat-of-arms : Azure a lion rampant
or. Crest : A lion couchant or.

( I ) Nathaniel Hews, or Hewes (also spelled
Hughes ) , was probably the immigrant ancestor.
He was born in or about 1720, and is thought
to be of Scotch ancestry, from the north of
Ireland. Where he settled is something of a
mystery. One good authority places him in
Brookfield, Massachusetts, before he settled
in Lyme, New Hampshire, but there is no trace
of a family of Hewes at that time in Brook-
field, nor, in fact, in Worcester county. Another
equally good authority states that he came from
Mansfield. Connecticut. As Lyme was settled
by Connecticut families, this seems more likely.
But he must have made a short stay at Mans-
field, for no trace of him appears in the vital
or church records. It seems likely to the writer
that Hewes lived at both places. There was
a prominent family of this name at East Haven,
Connecticut, but no known relation with Na-
thaniel exists. He came to Lvme after his son



MASSACHUSETTS.



1663



had settled there. He was a taxpayer in 1773.
Children: Nathaniel, Jr.. mentioned below;
Reuben, settled in Lyme ; perhaps others.

(II) Lieutenant Nathaniel (2), son of Na-
thaniel (1) Hewes, was born in 1747. The
"History of Grafton County, New Hampshire,"
relates that he was the first settler in the ex-
treme part of the township. He came there in
1766, at the age of nineteen, from Brookfield,
Massachusetts, made a clearing, and built a
log house on the farm lately occupied by D. A.
Warren. There were not more than seven
families then in the town of Lyme. In 1773
Hewes suffered a severe loss. He had accumu-
lated a fortune of seven silver dollars, and
from the prominence given to these coins we
infer that they were valued more than the
dwelling-house, which was destroyed by fire
while the owner and sister were at meet-
ing (church). "Diligent search was made,"
but he found no silver in the ashes. It was
supposed that three strangers seen in the vicin-
ity had pillaged the house and then set fire to
it. He married, 1774. Sarah Freeman, of
Mansfield, Connecticut, and had ten children.
A writer (in vol. xv.. p. 62, New Eng. Gen.
Reg.) states that she came "with her husband"
from Mansfield about 1767. That is mislead-
ing, since they were not married in 1767. The
same writer states that her (Sarah's 1 ) mother
lies near her. buried in 1815, aged ninety-five
years. Sarah Freeman died March 26, 185 1,
aged one hundred one years four months ten
days. Her gravestone is to be seen in the old
burial ground at Lyme. She lived seventy-five
years on the same farm. Nathaniel was a
soldier in the revolution, sergeant in 1777, in
Colonel Jonathan Chase's regiment, and march-
ed to Stillwater, New York : also in Captain
John Sloame's company, of Lyme, and on
alarm list, 1776. He became lieutenant of his
company, probably after the war, though possi-
bly before. Children: 1. John Freeman, born
March 15, 1784, died June 20, 1853; a man of
enterprise, built several saw mills ; father of
John R. Hewes, a well known citizen. 2. Cyrus,
born January 20, 1775; mentioned below. 3.
Sylvanus, born May 8, 1789 ; merchant, partner
of Asa Shaw, Abel Kent and others in mills ;
justice of the peace, state senator, county treas-
urer; died August 28, 1880; had three daugh-
ters, and a son, Nathan Wright, of Lyme.

CUT) Cyrus, son of Lieutenant Nathaniel
(2) Hewes, was born in Lyme, New Hamp-
shire, January 20, 1775, and died there Sep-
tember 5, 1865, aged ninety years. He was a
carpenter by trade. He married (first) ;



(second) October 21, 1826, Margaret, daugh-
ter of Sewell Pelton, of Lyme. Children, born
at Lyme, all by second wife: 1. Elizabeth G.,
June 24, 1827. 2. Sarah D., June 25, 1828,
died aged sixty years. 3. David D., September
17, 1830; mentioned below. 4. Sewell, July
28, 1834; resides in Lyme, New Hampshire.

( IV ) Daniel Demmick. son of Cyrus Hewes,
was born in Lyme, New Hampshire, Septem-
ber 17, 1830. He was educated in the public
schools of his native town, and followed farming
and carpentering in early life. In i860 he came
to Westfield. Massachusetts, and established
himself in business as a painter and contractor
in 1862 in that town. He was successful in
his venture and built up a large business, con-
tinuing for a period of forty years. He retired
in 1902, and has been occupied since then in
the care of his property. He continued also
to deal in doors, blinds and sash. He is a
member of Mt. Moriah Lodge of Free Masons,
and Mount Royal Chapter, Royal Arch Masons
of Westfield. He is independent in politics,
and a Congregationalist in religion. He mar-
ried, in 1874, Margaret Jane Ingraham, born
1846, at South Hadley Falls, died January 12,
1908, at Westfield, daughter of Obadiah Ingra-
ham (see Ingraham VI.). Children: 1. Jennie
May, living with her father, in home at West-
field ; educated in Westfield public schools and
State Normal School. 2. Robert I., born 1876;
educated in Westfield schools ; associated with
his father in the house painting business, and
succeeded him. 3. Norman M., born 1884;
educated in Westfield schools ; clerk in a gro-
cery store in his native town.



Genealogists begin the record
INGRAHAM of the Ingraham family with

Randolph son of Ingel'ram
or Ing'ram, who was sheriff of Nottingham
and Derby, in the reign of Henry II. (1133-
1 1 89 ) , as were his sons Robert and William.
Robert Ingram, knight, whose arms are painted
at Temple Newsam, or Newsham, England,
was of such eminence in the reign of Henry
III. that the priory and convent of Lenton
granted to him a yearly rent out of their lands
in Sheynton and Nottingham in recognition of
his military services in their defense. Temple
Newsam, an immense estate six miles in length
and four in width, situated about four and a
half miles east of Leeds, England, now called
the Ingraham estate, was first a settlement of
Knights Templar in the twelfth and thirteenth
centuries. After their dispersion it was granted
by Edward HI. to Sir John Darcy, and de-

scended to Lord Thomas Darcy, who was be-
headed by Henry Y I II. The estate was then for-
feited to the crown. It was afterwards granted
by the same monarch in 1554 to Mathew, Earl
of Lenox, and here \vas born his son, Henry
Darnley, who later became the husband of
Mary, Queen of Scots. The estate descended
to their son, James I. of England, and from
him to his kinsman. Esme Stuart, Duke of
Lennox, from whom it passed to Sir Arthur
Ingram, the first of the Lords Viscount Irwin,
one of the conditions being that the room in
which Eord Darnley was born should remain
unaltered. This room is still called the King's
Chamber.

Sir Arthur, who is supposed to have been
burn about 1 570. was celebrated for his valor
as a cavalier. He was a near relative of YVent-
worth, the celebrated Earl of Stafford. He
married ( first ) Eleanor, daughter of Sir Henry
Slingsby, of the "Red House ;" ( second ) Lady
Katherine, daughter of Thomas. Lord Yis-
count Fairfax of Gilling. Sir Arthur died in
1 '155. His sons were Henry and Arthur.
( The portraits of Sir Arthur in cavalier cos-
tume, of the first Viscount Irwin in full armor,
and of Henry, the second Viscount Irwin in
half armor, all nearly full length, were in the
collection of the Bishop of California, William
Ingraham Kip, D. D., LL. D., who died in
1 S< >4 ). I lenry, eldest son of Sir Arthur Ingram,
born between 1695 and 1700. was at the time
of the Restoration, six years after the death of
his father, created a peer of Scotland by Charles
II., with the title of Viscount Irwin, by letters
patent dated May 23. 1 66 1 , as a recompense
to the family for their loyalty. He married
Anne, daughter of Montacute, Earl of Man-
chester, a leader in parliament. The male
branch in England as descended from Sir
I lenry, the second Viscount Irwin, became ex-
tinct with Charles Ingram, ninth Viscount
Irwin, who died in 1778. ( Burke's "Extinct
1'eerage"). His daughter, the Marchioness of
Hertford, and Lady William Gordon, succes-
sively inherited the Temple Newsam, and from
them it passed to their sister. Mrs. Hugo May-
nell, whose son took the name of Ingram, and
his descendants are the present owners of the
family estate. Arthur Ingram, of Barrowby,
second son of Sir Arthur, was born between
1505 and 1600. He married a daughter of Sir
John Mallory, about 161 5, and genealogists
agree that from him is descended the Ingra-
ham family of America.

Edward Ingraham, the first of the name to
come to America, was born in 1617. At the



age of eighteen in July. 1635, he sailed in the
ship "Blessing," and settled in Salem, where he
was a proprietor as early as 1638. He was a
farmer. Richard Ingram came to America
between 1638 and 1642, and settled in Reho-
both, where he was a proprietor in 1645. Some
years later he removed to Northampton, where
in 1668, late in life, he married (probably not
his first wife ) Joan, daughter of William Rock-
well, widow of Jeffrey Baker, of Windsor,
Connecticut. He contributed a sum at the
time of the general subscription for the sup-
port of Harvard College in 1672-3. He died
in August, 1683, and his widow died Septem-
ber 16, 1683, both at Northampton. Since
genealogists agree that the Ingraham family in
America is descended from Arthur Ingram, of
Barrowby, second son of Arthur Ingram, it is
([uite probable that Edward Ingraham. who
came to America in 1635, and Richard In-
gram, who came between 1638 and 1642, were
brothers, and sons of Arthur of Barrowby.
Also, that Jared Ingram, of Boston, Rehoboth
ami Swansea, mentioned below, and John In-
gram, of Boston and Iladley, were sons of
Richard, as they spelled the name the same and
were located at various times near Richard.
The name at the present time is spelled Ingra-
ham in America.

( I ) Jared Ingram (or Jarrett. as the name
was sometimes spelled ) was the immigrant
ancestor of this branch of the Ingraham family,
and was presumably the son of Richard In-
gram. He was born in England, about 1635,
and died January ir, 1717-18. He settled at
Boston, Massachusetts. He removed to Reho-
both. where Richard lived, and had several
children born in Swansea, near Rehoboth, be-
tween 1665 and 1671. He married first ,

at. Boston; (second) May 28, 1662, Rebecca,
buried August 1, 1691, daughter of Edward
Searles. He married (third) April 22, 1692,
Waitstill, widow of Joseph Saben. whose father
was William Saben. She died November 5,
1718. Child of first wife, born at Boston: 1.
Margaret, born January 17, 1663; married,
April 4, 1684, David Freeman. Children of
second wife, born at Rehoboth and Swansea:
