* Tradition supjioses that Jared Dod, eldest son of Matthias,
perished in the battle of the Nile ; but this is disproved by an old letter
of his dated nearly three months after that battle, directed to his brother
William ; stating that on his return in the brig Citizen, from Hispaniola,
with sugar and coffee, they were taken by a British cruiser, and carried
into Haliftix, we suppose, on pretence of violating the orders In Comicil,
by trading -with a French colony. Jared thus lost his private venture of
two barrels of sugar and five bags of coffee, all he was worth. At the
date of the letter, Oct. 26, 1798, he was still waiting for the trial of the
1)rig, which he was told would be in twenty days ; but intended to " get
home as soon as he could." As he never got home, he was probably im-
pressed at Halifax, or possibly on his return by sea to New York. His
case is a striking examjjle of that tyranny of the British on the seas,
which drove om* fathers into the war of 1812.

t William Dodd, while at work on Governor's Island, took shelter
from a thunder shower in a room filled with carpenters' tools. The col-
lection of so much iron and steel in the room i)robal:)ly occasioned the
fatal stroke of lightning.

J On a summer day, July 23, 1801, a party of pleasure, old and young,
sailed to Coney Island. Through the mismanagement of the cajitain,
who was intoxicated, the young people went in bathing in an imsafe
place. Rachel Dodd, and her cousin Stephen Munn, (son of Jolm Munn,
her mother's brother,) got out of their dej^th. Her father, who was an
excellent swimmer, went to assist them ; but in the wild confusion of the
drownmg struggle, both caught hold of him, and all jjerished together,
and were swept into the sea, whence their bodies were never recovered.
Thus died Matthias Dodd, aged 48 years. Withm the space of three
years the father and three eldest children of this lately happy and flour-
ishing family were taken away.

He also, at one time, took cargoes of fruit and cider to sell at the South.
On one of these voyages he had to leave his cargo, on account of the
yellow fever, incurring a ruinous loss ; but by perseverance acquii-ed a
competency for his old age, and made a good provision for his children.

Matthias M., of Lewis, married Harriet Eowe, (daughter eihDcg.
of Stephen Eowe, dec'd,) Jan. 21, 1838, and had :

3. Adelaide, April 13, 1849.



* HoKACE N. Jennings, who married Myra (or Catharine Elmira) second
daughter of Matthias M. Dodd, is a grandson of Samuel Burnet, of Liv-
ingston. His maternal great-grandfather was Deacon Abner Ball, a great-
grandson of Edward Ball, one of the companions of Daniel Dod in the
first settlement of Newark. Aaron P. Mitchell, who married Ann
Elizabeth, the eldest daughter of M. M. Dodd, was also, I think, a de-
scendant of Edward Ball. Lydia, daughter of Edward Ball, married
Joseph Peck, and had two sons. Deacon Joseph Peck of Orange, and
Timothy Peck, of Morristown. John Peck, Esq., son of the deacon, had
by his first wife, Elizabeth Dodd, two sons, Joseph and Stej^hen. Joseph
married Mary Hedden, (daughter of Jonathan,) and had five daughters,
the youngest of whom, Mary Ann, married Lewis Mitchell, of East
Orange. If this genealogy is correct, then Aaron P. Mitchell is de-
scended from Daniel Dod 1st in two diSerent lines, tlu'ough Elizabeth
Dodd, daughter of Stephen, and through Rebekah, daughter of Samuel
Dod 1st, and wife of Joseph Hedden, Sen'r.
