i860, Clara Emma, dau. of Alexander, jr., and Clarissa
(Brown) Griswold, of Summit co. O. She is descended
from Edward Griswold who came from England to Con-
necticut in 1639 ; her grandfather, Alexander Griswold, sen.
was a Revolutionary soldier. She is a writer of repute,
author of the "Young Folks' History of the Civil War"
published by Estes & Lauriat of Boston, and of "49 Tink-
ham Street," published by McClurg & Co. of Chicago, 111.
Charles Edward Cheney studied at Canandaigua Academy ;
graduated at Hobart College in 1857, and at the Theological
Seminary of the Protestant Episcopal church in Fairfax co.
Va. in 1859, ^^ ^^^ same class with the late bishop Phillips
Brooks. In i860 he accepted a call to Christ church, Chi-
cago, 111., which has been his parish ever since. After several
years' ministry he came to feel that the ritual of the Book of
Common Prayer contained one phrase he could not con-
scientiously use. From his heroic refusal to violate his
conscience came ecclesiastical censure and protracted trials
which brought man}^ elements of the discussion into promi-
nent view. Out of this and other causes there arose the
Reformed Episcopal Church of the United States, under the
lead of Bishop Cummins ; of which Mr. Cheney was elected
a bishop at its first Council, and consecrated Dec. 14, 1873.
He has carried the double responsibility of the pastoral and
episcopal offices since that time. No children.

In 1838 a Holden lady, returning from a visit in the South,
brought a young African girl as a nurse. Several citizens,
learning that she was negotiating to sell the girl back into
slavery, took legal steps to free the girl and completed the
work. Four of those who had taken part in this emancipat-
