Samuel Stearns Stanford {Abner^ Caleb,"* David^

nezer Scott and Rebecca ■, t.r. Sec Randall's Hist.

Chest, for liis military service. She d. there July 21, 1843
{See Hist. Chest.) and was buried there, without stone. He is
said to have m. (2) about 1843, Phoebe Axtell, b. perhaps at
Jamaica or Tovvnshend, Vt. and (3) about 1849, probably at
Northfield, Mrs. Ruth (Turner) Elgar, b. there, widow of
Wm. Leonard Elgar, who d. at Northfield, Sep 6, 1848.
Samuel d. at Winchester, in the Summer of 1868, and was
buried there, without stone. Samuel's marriage to Mrs. Ruth
(Turner) Elgar is not among the Northfield marriages from
1843 to 1866. The most definite testimony by one who knew
them both, and who entertained both on one occasion, is :
" Samuel lived at West Northfield or Northfield Farms, where
his daughter Mary, a girl about sixteen years old, kept house
for him. He used to go with this Ruth then, and there was a
son, Henry, by Ruth, born at Samuel's house about 1852, not
long after Elgar was killed by a fall in his gristmill." As we
have seen, he d. somewhat earlier. Elgar was the son of
Wm. L. and Sophronia Elgar, He d. there of dysentery, but
was buried at Winchester. Oct. 13, 1848, Chas. Elgar, son
of Wm. L., a miller, and Ruth Elgar, was b. at Northfield.
Ruth is said to have d. at Westmoreland, N.H., about i88i-2.
Samuel was a farmer. All children but one by Rebecca, were
b. at Chesterfield.

William Hutchens, b. about 1826-7.

George Washington, b. 1828.

Emily Maria, b. Aug. 11, 1829.

Mary Elizabeth, b. Nov. 5, 1836.

Charles Rufus, b. July 18, 1838.

Sarah Rebecca, b. Dec. 5, 1839.

John, b. Hinsdale, July 5, 1842.

Henry, (by Ruth). Nothing definite is known about him,
beyond the fact that such a man is said to live in
southwestern New Hampshire — son of Samuel and
63 g. Son. There is also said to have been a second son.* The
existence of this son appears more impalpable than
that of the preceding. One might wonder that the first
family of children know nothing about these, but
the genealogist finds more than one parallel case.

* No record of these births appears at Northfield where Samuel and Ruth
lived, and where the children were most likely born.

She died at Keene, Oct. 30 (31, t.r.), 1857, and was buried
there in Washington Street cemetery, with stone. He m. (2)
at Keene, Jan. 13, 1858, by Rev. Newhall Culver, Laura
Stiles, of Keene, Harrisville, N.H. (at that time in a part of
either Nelson or Dublin — probably the former), Apl 14, 18 19,
dau. of Abraham Stiles and .

Oct. 17, 1857, Willis bought a small homestead at West Keene, of John
W. Binney and mortgaged a part — one acre and a hundred twenty-four square
rods, on the south of the Chesterfield road, to secure a note for §200, loaned by
Levi M. Adams, of Keene. This land extended from the corner of Chauncey B.
Billings' land along the Cheshire railroad, along John Elliot's land and along
Billings' land. The mortgage deed was signed by Willis and Elinda. Aug.
29, 1863, Adams assigned this mortgage to C. H. Stanford, to whom Willis on
Aug. 21, 1863, in consideration of ftioo. received from C.II.S. and of his assump-
tion of the $200. note and interest, had quit-claimed this land.

On Mch 29. 1858, Willis and Laura, for -S350. paid by Chas. Carter, of
Keene, deeded him two acres with buildings, on the west side of the road to

Oct. 17, 1864 Willis and Laura, of Keene, for $1200. sold Chauncey B.
Billings, of Keene, their homestead on ihe mrth side of West Street, containing
about two acres, — tlie same land as that sold to Willis by Isaac Rand, Jan. 4,
1849 ^""^ ^Ich 18, 1850. About this time they bought a farm of fifty-two acres
at Chesterfield, about two miles from town, on the Winchester road. His name
first appears on the tax lists in 1866 and then continuously until his death.

He d. there Mch 17, 1884, of asthma, and was buried at
Keene, in Washington Street cemetery, with stone. She d. at
Chesterfield, Sep 29, 1900, of senile dementia and was buried

Wrantslow Stanford {Abncr,^ Cahb,^ David'; Thoiiias^-
Thomas^) m. at Thetford, Dec. 4, 1834, by Rev. Jacob P.
Huntington, Christiana Gould, of Thetford, t.k., b. there Nov.
21, 181 1, dau. of Israel Gould and Martha Sargent.

They lived at Thetford when first married, probably on the bluff, at
Sunnybeam, on the Israel Gould farm, now owned by the Burrs ; later at West
Fairlee, near the lake (where the present creamery stands), on the ^^'ilmot estate ;
possibly he lived within Post Mills line. They next moved to King Hill, \Yest
Fairlee, and were neighbors to Duncan Stanford. The record of this purchase is
in vol. 4, p. 446 of the Land Records at West Fairlee. Rensalier Rovvell, of
West Fairlee, sold Christiana Stanford, of Thetford, for i?22o, thirty-three acres
of land, lot 6 range 6 (south-easterly third) bounded by land of Duncan Stanford,
John P. Southworth, Alden B. Collcott and by the highway (on the west) from
James Fallows' place to Middle Brook— being land shortly before owned by
Arnold A. Elliot. The date was Mch i8, 1840, but on Nov. 20, 1841 this pro-
l^erty was deeded back to Rowell. There was a siiiall house on the premises, where
one son, P^eeman, was born. Later the Tituses occupied this place (i'^42)- The
cellar hole with narrow " apple cellar," is still in good preservation with clumps
of family lilacs about it. It is north of the Duncan Stanford farm on which the
barn, on the west side of the road, still remains {See 9) ; it is also perhaps half way
up the hill from that place and not far below the dilapidated shack on top of the
hill, where the old King buildings stood. Subsequently the family moved to

Post Mills and lived in a house at the village, owned by Dea. Hinckley.

From there Wrantslow went alone to Lowell, to secure work, leaving his wife
and children at Post Mills. This was probably .sometime between 1845 and
1847; for Charles Higgins, of Post Mills, says that Wrantslow went before the
railroad at Thetford was built, on the construction of which he himself and
Loren G. Stanford {See 71) worked in 1847-8. Afterwards he moved his family
to Lowell, but his two older boys were " put out "' to families at Thetford.

Christiana died at Lowell, Mch 14, 1854, and was buried
there in Edson cemetery, with stone. He m. (2) at Lowell,
Aug. 6 (Aug. I, T.R., a mistake), 1854, by Rev. Eben B. Foster
(Cong'l), ElizabethLongley.b. at Shirley, Je 10, 1818, dau. of
Elij ah Longley and Betsey Stone. See Chandlc} 's Hist. Shirley.

They lived at Lowell until 1S59 or i86o, wjien he moved his family to


Lunenburg, while he worked at the Wason Car Shops, Springfield. His nanie
is on the tax lists at Lunenburg for iS6o and l86i. May 6, 1862 they bought
a farm of eighty-two acres, in the easterly part of Chelmsford, on the county
road to Rillerica; Apl 11, 1871 they sold this, moved to Lowell and from there,
in 1873, to Chicopee and then, 1875, back to Lowell.

lie died there Apl 29, 1876, of pneumonia, and was buried
there in Edson cemetery, in the family lot (lot 1 1 range 45),
with stone. He Avas a carpenter and worked continuously for
the Merrimack Man'f g. Co., at Lowell, for twelve years, wlien
because of poor health, he made a change and soon went to
farming ; he had weak lungs and ' old fashioned consumption,'
with occasional hemorrhages. After some years of \'ery hard
work on the farm, they decided on account of his poor health
and for the sake of affording the children better educational
opportunities, to return to the city. From 1 871 until within
a few years of her death, she was a keeper at
Lowell, Chicopee and again at Lowell. She died there Oct. 1 1,
1892, of heart failure, and was buried in the family lot, with
stone. Her last years were passed at the home of her daughter,
Anna. They attended John St. Cong'l. Church, Lowell, of
which she was ahnost a lifelong member.

1. Loren Gould, b. at Thetford, Jan. 2, 1835.

2. Freeman S., b. at West Fairlee, Aug. 14, 1840.

He enlisted at Bradford, Sep 25, 1861, for three years and served in the dis-
astrous Peninsula Campaign inaugurated and bungled to a conclusion by that great
cunctator, McClellan, whose Fabian policy inured to the benefit of his enemies.
Freeman was mustered into company B, si.xth regiment Vermont volunteer infan-
try, at Montpelier, Oct. 15, left with his regiment on the 19th, for Washington
and from there, on the 24th, for Camp Griffin near Lewinsville, Va., where pre-
smnably the winter w-as passed, during which the regiment suffered terribly from
typhoid fever, diphtheria, measles and mumps. It was joined to the second,
third, fourth and fifth Vermont regiments to complete the Vermont brigade
which in the original organization of the Army of the Potomac, was in Gen.
William F. Smith's division of the fourth corps under Gen. Keyes; but upon
organization of the sixth corps. May 16, 1862, the Vermont brigade was the
.second in the second division, in this corps, under Gen. Smith. The sixth regiment
broke camp Mch 10, 1862. to begin field work in the Peninsula Campaign; it first
met the enemy at Warwick Creek, Apl 5, and shed its first blood, without loss of
life, the next day. The battles in which it participated from Mch to July, were
Warwick Creek, Apl 5, Lee's Mills, Apl 6, Williamsburg, May 5, Golding's Farm,
Je 27, 28, Savage's Station, Je 29, White Oak Swamp, or Bridge, Je 30 ; it also
probably engaged in the siege of Yorktown, Apl 5 — May 4; it was thus in the
Seven Days' Battles before Richmond, some of the severest contests during the war.

Gen. Wm. Buel Franklin (1823-1903) says of this terrible week : " My
experience during the period generally known as ' the seven days,' was with the
sixth and second corps. During the whole time between Je 26 and July 2 there
was not a night in which the men did not march almost continually, nor a day
on which there was not a fight; some men fell by the wayside and were captured;
they had no food but that which was carried in their haversacks and the hot
weather soon rendered that uneatable. Sleep was out of the question and the
rest obtained was while lying down awaiting an attack or sheltering themselves
from shot and shell."


Freeman was attacked by diarrhea at this critical junc-
ture, the disease became chronic and he was removed from
the front to the U.S. GenL Hosp. at Newark, N.J., which he
entered Aug. 20; he died there Oct. 4, 1862, and was buried
in the Greenwood national cemetery at Fairmount, near New-
ark, in the soldiers' plot, with stone uniform with those of
other soldiers. He was unmarried.
73 3. Albert, b. at Thetford, Aug. 20, 1842, enlisted at

Lowell, July 12, 1861, in company G sixteenth IVlass.

volunteer infantry, for three years, and was mustered

in on the same day.

The regiment was composed of ten companies, A lo K, from Middlesex
county, and in June, took up quarters at Camp Cameron, Camljridge, left for war
Aug. 17, 1861, and was stationed at Fortress Monroe from vSep to May, 1S62,
when it was the first Union regiment to march into Norfolk, Portsmouth and
Suffolk; it joined the Army of the Potomac, at Fair Oaks, |e 13 and shed its first
l)lood Je 18, in Woodland Skirmish. " I can trust them anywhere," said Hooker
of this regiment at this time; it was fighting at Peach Orchard, Je 25 and at
Glendale, Je 30. " There is no doubt that at Glendale, the sixth Mass. saved the
army," wrote Hooker to Gov. Andrew; it was at Malvern Hill, July I, Brislow
Station, Aug. 27, Second Bull Run, Aug. 29, 30, Fredericksburg, Dec. 12-14,
" where Northern blood drenched the banks of the Rappahannock " ; then at
Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, July 2, 3, Wapping Heights, Locust Grove, July 18,
Mine Run, Barker's Store, and a part of the battle of the Wilderness, May 5, 1864;
it was attached to the second army corps, fourth division, second brigade of the
Army of the Potomac.

Albert was mustered out July 27, 1864, he and seventeen others being the
only original members of the company who completed the full term of enlistment.
Before going to war he was an operative at Lowell and to this work he returned.

He married there May 13, 1865, by Rev. Amos Blanch-
ard (Cong'l), Nancy F'uller Howard, t.r,, b. at Washington, Me.,
Apl 5, 1847, dau. of Rev. Francis Howard (Free Baptist) and
Hannah Linscott. They lived at Lowell. In the Autumn of
1S67, he went to California " to better himself," and worked in
a grain store, at San Francisco ; she was to come out in the
Spring; she arrived Apl 2, 1868, but had become disaffected
and estranged, and, after twenty days, left on Apl 22, by
steamer, for New York, " with her trunk marked Annie
Fuller." They had no children. She is said to have m. (2) at
Buffalo, N.Y., Apl 11, 1870, Theodore DeForest Deland, a
mechanical engineer, by whom she has one son, Clyde C~)smer,
b. at Union City, Penn., Dec. 27, 1872, an artist who lives with
his parents at 4429 Osage St., Phila.

Albert was soon lost to his friends, but in 1875, Overseer Taylor, of the
Tremont mills, Lowell, who was going to California, was asked to inquire for
him ; he met him at Carson City, Nev. His father, his sister, Anna, and his bro,
Arthur, wrote him and he replied from Carson, by a single letter, in 1875 ; in
1876 he wrote once, from Wadsworth, Nev., to Anna; in 1877 he wrote once
from Cornucopia, Nev., to his parents; and on Je 10, 1S78, he wrote from Mill



City, Cornucopia, Elko Co., Nev., to Anna, since when nothing has been heard
from him. In that letter he spoke hopefully of returning home : " will be back
thereby Thanksgiving or Christmas, if nothing happens to prevent"; he also
mentioned an uprising of the Bannock Indians, who were on the war path and
had already killed several white men ; arms and amunition had been distributed
by the Governor, and one party had left there that night for the front and another
was gomg. Possibly he was killed l)y the Indians.

there Sep i, 1886, by Rev. Charles H. Willcox
(Cong'l), ?Iannah Jane Pearson, b. there Jan. 14, 1856,
T.R., dau. of John Pearson and Hannah Jane Grimes.
They reside at 144 Hancock St., Auburndale. They have
no children.

She attended the Edson grammar and the high school at Lowell, but
graduated at Abbot Academy, Andover, where she was a teacher about two years,
until marriage. His first schooling was at Chelmsford, but later he graduated
from the Green grammar and the high school, Lowell, entered Dartmouth
College, then the sophomore class at Amherst College, where he graduated
B.A. in 1S82 and received the degree of M.A. in 1886; he graduated B.D. at
Yale Divinity School, in 1885, and pursued a postgraduate course of one year
there in 1886. In the summer of that year he received appointment as a
sionary of the American Board, to Japan. He was ordained at the First Con-
gregational Church, Lowell, of which he and his wife were members, Sep 15,
1886. They sailed from San P>ancisco, Oct. 19, and arrived at their station,
Kyoto, in mid-November ; for nine years he was professor of Old Testament
exegesis and literature in the theological department of the Doshisha; she
engaged in evangelistic work among the churches, with more or less teaching in
the Doshisha girls' school and elsewhere; on return from furlo, they resided at
Tottori, iMatsuyama and Kobe, where both taught in Kobe College for girls, of
which she was acting principal for two years. They have traveled in Hawaii,
Korea, Northern China, to Pekin atd the Great Wall, Shanghai and Southern
China, Hongkong, Ceylon, India, Egypt, Palestine, Europe, etc. They studied
some months at Berlin, during their furlo, where he matriculated at the Univer-
sity of Berlin and took courses under Weiss, Baethgen, Strack and others. In
1903 his health became seriously impaired, necessitating a return from Japan to
the United States. The summer of 1904, they spent in Ireland, Scotland and Eng-
land, largely in the open air, with much walking ; they tramped over the English
Lake District for five weeks, in which Mrs. Stanford's walking record was three
hundred and forty miles and Mr. Stanford's, three hundred and eighty. Upon
their return, they made their home at Auburndale, where Mrs. Stanford became
superintendant of The Missionary Plome, established some years ago by the late
Mrs. Walker. In the Spring of 1906 Mr. Stanford went to Japan for a few
months, as director of a party of tourists.
