appears, so far as can be ascertained from
contemporary records, to have sustained the
character of a sagacious, energetic and suc-
cessful business man ; of an honest, upright
and worthy citizen ; and of a good and peace-
ful neighbor. He held a respectable social po-
sition among his fellow townsmen, and his
family and the families to whom they were al-
lied by marriage were highly respected, and
among the most wealth and influential in Wa-
tertown. He was buried in the ancient bury-
ing ground situated on the old road leading
from Cambridge to Watertown, a short dis-
tance w-esterly of Mount Auburn. He mar-
ried, about 1642. Susan or Susanna . She

married (second) fifteen months after his
death. November 18. 1673. Richard Norcross,
who survived her. She died in Watertown.
December ri, 1686. The children of this
union were : Susanna, Mary, John, Philip.
Joanna, William, Rebecca. Abigail, Benjamin
and Samuel.

(II) Dr. Philip, second son of William and
Susan hi- Susanna Shattuck, was born in Wa-
tertown, probably in 1648, died in what is now
Waltham, June 26, 1-22. He resided near
the Waverly station on the.Fitchburg railroad,
easterly of Beaver Brook; and his estate ex-
tended northerly into Cambridge. He was
a physician of eminence, and for a long pi
a leading man in the public affairs of the town.
He was chosen moderator of town meetings,
and held the offices of assessor, town treas-

urer, chairman of the selectmen, and very
many other important stations of public trust
and responsibility. A gravestone erected to
his memory was standing in the Waltham
cemetery in 1852, bearing the following in-
scription :



"Here Lyes Buried
ye Body of Doctr
PHILIP SHATTUCK,
who deed June
ye 26th, 1722, in ye 74th
year of his Age.
Blessed are the Dead
that Die in the Lord."



A new marble tablet was later erected, to
which the above inscription was transferred,
with the following appended : "The above rec-
ord was transferred from a moss-grown crum-
bling headstone of slate, to one of more en-
during marble, by a descendant of the 5th gen-
eration, A. D. 1853." His will was dated Janu-
ary 29, and proved August 30, 1722. He had
two sons by the name of Philip living at the
same time, one by each wife, and they were
distingusihed from each other in his will as
"Philip Shattuck of Saybrook," and "Philip
Shattuck, the younger," or as "the youngest
son of my present beloved wife." Accounts
of two living children of the same name in one
family sometimes occurs in the early history
of this country and in England, but this is the
only instance found in this family. Dr. Shat-
tuck married (first) November 9, 1670, Debor-
ah Barstow, daughter of William and Anna
Barstow. She died November 24, 1679. He
married (second) February 11, 1680, Rebecca
Chamberlain, who survived him, and died in
1728. She also left a will dated December 13,
1727, which was probated November 19, 1728.
Children of first wife: Deborah, Philip, Susan-
nah, Anna; by the second wife: Joseph (died
young), Rebecca, Benjamin, Joseph. Nathan-
iel, Isaac, Amos, Sarah, Theophilus and Philip.

and Rebecca (Chamberlain ) Shattuck, was
born in Watertown, March 6, 1687. He was a
physician and resided in Boston from 1708 to
1715. He afterwards removed to Watertown,
and assumed the medical practice of his father
and there he died in the full vigor of life, May
19, 1729. He married, in Boston, October 12,
1708, Mary Ladd, of that town. His first
three or four children were born in Boston,
and were baptized in the Brattle Street Church,
of which the parents were members. Chil-
dren : Joseph (died young), Rebecca. Joseph

(IV) Samuel, third son of Dr. Joseph and
Mary 1 Ladd 1 Shattuck, was born in Water-
town, May 29, 1716, died in Montague, De-
cember 29, 1760. He was probably the Sam-
uel Shattuck who was a proprietor of Peter-
sham at its first incorporation. He afterward
settled in Deerfield. His eldest son served a
campaign in the French war, ami on his return
brought home the smallpox, and gave it to
both his parents. The mother and son recov-

pany from the county of Hampshire in the
revolutionary arm}- from July to November.

September 12, 1797. The Massachusetts Rev-
olutionary Rolls state that Oliver Shattuck
was "Captain in a regiment commanded by
Lieutenant Colonel Barnabas Sears ; engaged

She died September 24, 1857, aged fifty-nine

( \ 1 1 ) Edwin White, only son of Henry
and Tirza (Porter) Shattuck. was born in
Amherst, August 12. 1834. He attended dis-
trict school until sixteen years of age. At thir-
teen he began work in a cotton mill, where he
was employed during the warm season of the
year for three years. Then on account of the
illness of his father he took charge of the
farm for a year, until the death of the father.
The following three years he spent learning
the carpenter's trade with Charles Bangs, of
North Amherst. At the age of twenty he be-
gan contracting and building on his own ac-
count at Amherst, where he remained until
1858. At that time there was much going on
in the new southwest to attract men, and Mr.
Shattuck went to Leavensworth, Kansas, and
<-o Crystal Lake, Illinois, where he spent a
year mostly at the latter place. In 1859 he
returned to Massachusetts and engaged in the
business of construction at Springfield, where
he has been actively engaged ever since — a
period of over fifty years. He has built many
well known structures in Springfield, among
which are W. D. Kinsman's block, the Chico-
pee National Bank, the Lyman building, the
Art building, all the Milton Bradley and Tap-
ley buildings near Willow and Grove streets,
the Woman's Christian Association building,
the residence of Dr. Corcoran, the residence
of Mrs. E. Brewer Smith, the residence of E.
O. Sutton, thp Irving Page house, Chicopee
Falls, the Leed House, Ridgeway Place, and
the Springfield Republican building, to which
he is now adding two stores. Mr. Shattuck
was a Whig, h"t joined the Republican party
soon after its organization, and has since
voted for its candidates. He has been a mem-
ber of the Memorial Church (Evangelical)
for many years and one of its deacons. Ed-
win W. Shattuck married. May 17, 1859, Bes-
sie Kimball, by whom he had one child, Ed-

The Jones family of this sketch
JONES was of . Welsh ancestry and is

closely related to the Janes fam-
ily, the immigrant ancestor of which spelled
his name Jeanes. The Jones and Janes fami-
lies were closely connected for many genera-
tions.

( I ) Griffin or Griffith Jones, immigrant an-
cestor, settled in Springfield, Massachusetts,
as early as 1646 and was a proprietor of the
town in that year. He was admitted a free-
man April 5, 1649. He was a Welshman and

married Sarah before coming to this

country. She died May 6, 1665 ; he died Feb-
ruary 19, 1676-77. The two younger children
were bound out until they came of age, Pe-
latiah to Deacon William Holton, of North-
ampton, and Benoni to Lieutenant William
Clarke, of Northampton. The estate was ad-
ministered by sons Samuel and Ebenezer. Chil-
dren, born at Springfield: I. Child, born and
died September 25, 1645. 2 - Mercy, born
July 4, 1647, married James Barker. 3. Hep-
zibah, born September 26, 16 — , married Isaac
Cakebread. 4. Samuel, born January 19,
1651. 5. Ebenezer, born July 14, 1653, re-
sided at Northampton ; married Mercy Bagg.
6. Thomas, born June 8, 1655, married Eliza-
beth Graves. 7. Griffith, born June 4, 1658,
died young. 8. Griffith, born March 28, 1660.
9. Experience, born August 12, 1662, married
John Higgins. 10. Pelatiah, born July 22,
1664. 11. Benoni, mentioned below.

(II) Benoni. son of Griffin or Griffith
Jones, was born in 1666. At the age of twelve
years he was indentured to William Clarke, of
Northampton, until he came of age. It was
stipulated that Clarke should "learn him to
read and write and give him five pounds at
the end of his term with sufficient clothing
such as servants usually have and at the end
of his time two suits of apparel." He and
four others resided in Pascommuck, now
Easthampton, settled about 1699. His farm
was about four miles from Northampton cen-
ter and was the garrison house during Indian
hostilities. Benoni and two sons were slain
by the Indians May 13, 1704, and his wife
taken a captive to Canada, where she died
later in the year. The wife of Benjamin Janes,

a neighbor and relative, was taken to the top
of Pomeroy Mountain, scalped and left for
dead, but she recovered. Benjamin moved to
Coventry, Connecticut. Samuel Janes was
slain during the same attack'. Benoni Jones
married, January 23, 1689, Esther (Gurley)
Ingersoll, daughter of John and William Gur-
ley. Children: I. Jonathan, born January
4, 1695, died young. 2. Benjamin, born 1696,
mentioned below. 3. Ebenezer, born Novem-
ber 12, 1698, killed by Indians May 13, 1704.
4. Jonathan, born March 3, 1703, killed May
13, 1704, with father and brother.

(III) Benjamin, son of Benoni Jones, was
born in 1696 or earlier. After the massacre at
Northampton, May 13, 1704, when his father
and two brothers were killed and his mother
taken a captive, he appears to have removed
with the Janes family to Coventry, Connecti-
cut. Benjamin Janes, with whom he went,
was son of the immigrant William Janes or
Jeanes, who was a school teacher at New Ha-
ven, Wethersfield and Northampton, and per-
haps brother of Griffith Jones. The history
of Wethersfield, indeed, gives Benoni as a son
of William Janes. The maintenance of the
difference in spelling the name though the
families lived side by side, is a means of trac-
ing them and is evidence that this Benjamin
Jones was the son of Benoni Jones, not of
Benjamin Janes. The similarity of names of the
children of this Benjamin Jones and those of
Benoni Jones corroborates this assumption.
Benjamin and Hannah Jones or Janes had a
son Seth at Coventry, August 31, 1715. This

Benjamin married Patience , who died

April 24, 1770, aged seventy-five years, at
Coventry. Children of Benjamin and Patience
Jones, born at Coventry: 1. Ebenezer, born
April 8, 1718, mentioned below. 2. Esther,
born May 1, 1720. 3. Jonathan, born June 21,

and lived in Coventry. 4. Noah, born May
15, 1724, married. May 9, 1745, Dinah Hitch-
cock ; lived at Coventry. 6. Huldah, born
June 25, 1729. 7. Asahel, born July 7, 1731,
died August 7, 1740. 8. Sybil, born April 22,
1735, died August 29, 1740. 9. Dinah, born
March 29, 1739, died September 8. 1740.

(IV) Ebenezer, son of Benjamin Jones,
was born at Coventry, April 8, 17 18. He
married (first) at Coventry, May 5. 1743,
Abigail Long, who died December 16. fol-
lowing. He married (second) December 4,

Coventry to Palmer, Massachusetts, about

iv— 6

tee of inspection. He was highway surveyor
in 1775. He is called lieutenant on the Palmer

and Indian war. He was chosen on a commit-
tee to provision the minutemen at the time of
the Lexington call with a barrel of biscuit, a

on the committee of correspondence in 1776;
and on the committee to care for the families
of revolutionary soldiers in 1777. He was

(Y1I) Edward Dorr Griffin, son of Eber
Jones, was born September 22, 1824. died De-
cember 30, 1904. lie was educated in the
public schools of Brooklyn, New York, and in
Wellington, Ohio, and remained with his fath-
er on the farm until he became of age. He
then returned to Lee, Berkshire county, Mas-
sachusetts, and learned the trade of mill-
wright with his uncle, Timothy Jones. In
1853 he established himself in business as a
millwright at Lee, and an important part of
the business was the agency for the sale of
turbine wheels manufactured by the James
Leffell Company of Springfield, <>hin. The
business of equipping paper mills and the
manufacture of paper mill machinery was
added and soon became a feature, and even-
tually the exclusive manufacturing interest.
In 1866 he sold his Lee business to Henry
Couch and Freeman Oakley, and started in
business in Pittsfield in the same line, which
evolved into the E. D. Jones & Sons Company,
in which he was engaged up to the time of his
death. He was president and director of the

the Third National Bank of Pittsfield; presi-
dent and director of the Co-operative Bank ;

general court in 1879-80 for the third Berk-



shire district, and of the state senate in 1880-
87, where he rendered efficient service. As a
member of the board of public works in Pitts-
field from 1891 to 1899, however of which
body he was chairman, his services were con-
spicuously valuable. During this time the
sewerage system was installed, and to this
work Mr. Jones gave his best efforts, and to
him, in a large measure, is due the splendid
results accomplished for the city in that di-
rection. He believed in doing well whatever
he had to do, and his ability and integrity
soon established for him an enviable reputa-
tion in business and financial circles. He had
many friends who appreciated his fine quali-
ties as a gentleman, and his character was
without blemish.
