STANFORD GENEALOGY.

b. at Winchester, Je i8, 1833, dau. of Charles Reed and Eme-
line Blanchard ; he lived at Vernon and South Vernon ; July
25, 1.862, he enlisted, for three years, as musician in company
E eleventh Vt. volunteer infantry.

He left Braltleboro with his company, for Wasliington, Sep 7, where they
remained until the Summer of 1863 ; in June, Hannah had a letter from him
there, saying he was a nine montlis' man, ther<^by intimating his purpose to
desert. It is said tliere was no need for increased infantry, wlien his regiment
went to Wasliington, and it was kept there comfortably quartered until the
Summer of 1863 ; then the call was for artillery and the plan of turning his
regiment into that, is assigned as a possible motive for George's desertion ; shortly,
a second letter came from Maryland, saying he was in the woods at work for
Mr. Eaton, tliat he was to be known in future, as Charles Gordon, that she should
be ready wiih the children, as he intended to come for her; but she heard no
more for two or three years, when she learned he had married the daughter of
Thomas Nash, a planter at Marriot'sville, Md., and had a boy about two years
old. He m. Miss Nash at Marriottsville, Md., Mch — , 1864, arid the child was
born there Feb. 27, 1865. Charles Gordon left his home May 5, 1866, to visit
his relatives at Winchester, N.II., where he seems to have spent a considerable
time ; he is said to have told his wife that " he was going north to see his sick
fatlier who lived in New York." He did not return to Maryland until Jan. 29,
1867. While he was in southern New Hampsliire and Vermont, Hannah was
securing a divorce at Brattleboro, thru her attorney, Howe ; it was granted for
desertion, at the February term, 1867. Gordon's long absence from Maryland
was the occasion of correspondence failing into the hands of liis wife and her
father, which awakened their suspicions. Mr. Nash wrote several times to
Hannali; in Mch, 1867, Mr. Nash and his daughter, severed all relations witli
Charles Gordon and sent him away. It is said he was seen at a hotol in Chicago,
Nov. I, 1869, by his old friend, Payette Streeter, of South Vernon ; Gordon was
then employed by the hotel. Notliing further was ever known of him, altho a
rumor, of well-known species, has it that he has since called at the doors of
various old friends in New Hampshire, asking for a drink of water, without
making his identity known, and that notice of his death not many years ago,
was seen in a local paper.

rity. Of the hymns, ' Gathering Home ' was her own selection ;
' Saved by Grace ' followed the minister's remarks, ending
with ' Crossing the Bar,' in which the sight of the pilot, face to
face, coincided with the theme of the chorus of the hymn.

4. 1857, by Rev. Solon Martin, Nancy Chubb Stanford, his
cousin, b. at West F'airlee (King Hill), Nov. 18, 1835, dau.
of Jesse Duncan Stanford and Eunice Whitcomb. They
lived at West Fairlee and at Lowell ; they separated about
Feb., i860 {See 43) and he m. (2) at Northport, Aug. 30, i860,
by James Lancaster, J. P., Maria Louise Pendleton, b. at
Northport, Aug. 20, 1827, dau. of Capt, Amos Pendleton
and Jennie Farnsworth, of Northport, t.r.

They became acquainted at Lowell, where she had gone to work in the
Merrimack mills, soon after the breaking up of her home, by the death of her
father, in 18157. From Northport, they drove far up into the wilds of Maine, to
a hamlet called Patten, where he settled, Sep. 6, 1862, and began the practice of
medicine; he soon became a very successful and popular homeopathic physician
at Patten and for miles around. Patten is, today, a smart little village, but it
is still " a jumping off place " — into the woods. What must it have been in
1862, only Iwenty-two years after Lorenzo ^^'adlin and others, petitioned the
court for incorporation as a plantation — No. 4 of range 6, assigning as a reason
that they were " upwards of forty miles from any town or organized plantation
by any possible road," and they found it rather inconvenient, and expensive
going to vote. Dr. Stanford began housekeeping in a couple of rooms over a
store, in a shack of a building, which was at once his home and his office. They
had desperately hard work to keep warm some of the time in winter, and their
stock of furniture was limited ; yet his wife has said that she was never so happy
in the home of comfort where she was reared, nor in any home of her own
since, as she was during those first early days of getting a start. A man's life
consists not in the abundance of his possessions. He first appears on the tax
list in 1863, when they had settled cosily in their own home ; for he was assessed
for a house, stable, office and lot, at % 650, as well as for a horse and a cow.
With this modest little home on Parsonage street, they lived happily and
prosperously with his enlarging practice, for but little over five years, when he
was thrown from his carriage to the frozen ground, while on a professional visit
into the country, in the autumn of 1867 5 he sustained internal injuries to the
liver and had frequent hemorrhages until his death, Mch 29, 1868; he was
buried with masonic orders, at Patten and has a stone. Citizens there today
who knew him well, speak, with emphasis, of the marked impression he made
on the community and of the high esteem in which he was held. Doubtless for
a large per cent of his success, his wife was responsible. They had no children.
She has lived at Patten ever since. She m. (2) there, Dec. 16, 1869 (int.

Dec. 10), by D.E. Benjamin, J. P., Daniel Lord, Jr. b. at Brownville, 1828,

etc. He d. there Apl i, 1897, of dilation of the heart, and was Ixiried there
with stone. There were no children.
