when the congregation called the Rev. Dr.
Ogden to become their settled pastor. The
original house of worship soon became inade-
quate to accommodate the growing congrega-
tion, and a new church was erected in 1832.
This building was subsequently enlarged and
beautified, and the efficient labors of the pas-
tor and the growing regard of the people re-
sulted in a ereatly increased congregation.
Rev. Joseph M. Ogden was not only popular
in his own church and community, but became
well known and appreciated throughout the
state and officiated upon many occasions out-
side of his own pastorate. He resigned the
church at Chatham on September 23, 1873,
having enjoyed an uninterrupted and success-
ful pastorate of forty-five years. He and his
wife were both interred in the burying ground
at Chatham. Dr. Ogden married, in 1849.
Emeline Atwood. daughter of Richard and
Hannah (Hayes) Sweasey. She was born at
Newark, New Jersey, April 26, 1822, died at
Chatham. August 17, iSgo. Children: 1.
W'illiam Wilberforce, born March, 1850; mar-
ried Mariana or Marana N. Jarman. 2. Cor-
nelia Townley, born August 16, 185 1 : mar-
ried Francis L. Minton. 3. Joseph Wallace,
mentioned below. 4. Edward Prime, born
July T5. 1853, died February 2, i8f)g; married
Sarah Minton. 5. Henry Day, married Mary
Freeman.

(XHI) Joseph Wallace, son of Rev. Joseph
Meeker and Emeline Atwood (Sweasey) Og-
den, was born at Chatham, New Jersey, in
April, 1853. He received his middle name in
honor of Mr. William C. Wallace, the life-
long friend and parishioner of his father, born
the same year and graduated in the same class
at college. Dr. Ogden desired a liberal edu-
cation for his son and entered him at Lafay-
ette College in the class of '72 ; though he did
not remain to tlie end of the course and was
not graduated with his class, he later on re-
ceived the degree of A.M. from the college.
Upon entering business life his first occupa-
tion was that of clerk in a brokerage firm on



Wall street. His advancement was rapid, and
in 1 88 1 he established the banking and brok-
erage firm of J. \\\ Ogden & Company, which
he conducted with marked success for many
years. The house engaged in many large
financial transactions and acquired a well mer-
ited reputation for business sagacity and for
safe and conservative methods. Mr. Ogden
has become one of the prominent and influen-
tial figures in financial circles in New York
City, and has been connected in various ways
for a number of years with many leading cor-
porations and industries. For several years
prior to its absorption by the Erie railroad, he
was vice-president and director of the New
York, Susquehanna & Western railroad ; at a
later period he acquired extensive interests in
the anthracite coal fields, becoming president
of the .Algonquin and Laurel Run Coal com-
panies of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. He is
a member of the Union, Down Town, and Rid-
ing clubs of New York, and of the Morris-
town Coif and Whippany River clubs.

Mr. Ogden is not prominent as a politician
and has never desired political office. He is
a staunch Presbyterian and has been liberal
in the support of the church. In July, 1902,
when members of the church at Chatham of
which his father had been pastor for forty-
five years, opened a subscription for building
a new church, Mr. O.gden requested the with-
drawal of subscriptions to the amount of six
thousand dollars which had been received
from others, and himself contributed $10,000
to the cost of tlie building. The descendants
of Mr. William C. Wallace, his father's old
friend and classmate, requested that they
might be permittefl to provide the funds for
the interior decoration. The proposition was
accepted by Mr. O.gden. and the trustees de-
cided to change the name of the church to
the Ogden Memorial. Mr. Ogden is a resi-
dent of Morristown, New Jersey, where he
owns a handsome estate, Loantaka Farms,
upon which he passes a portion of the year;
this propertv has been in possession of various
members of the family since early colonial
davs. In the vear 1884 Mr. Ogden married
Charlotte Ward.

There is a movement on foot to erect a
monument in P>ow!inEr Green, New York City,
to the memory of John Ogden. at the tercen-
tenary of the city's settlement. He was the
earliest settler of pure English blood in New
York.

The earliest Englishman who
HALSEY bore the name of Halsey, as
far as the available records
show, lived in the extreme western, end of
Cornwall between Penzance and Land's End.
We are told that in the time of Richard L,
who was crowned in 1189, and of King John
and his successor, the estate of the Cornish
family comprised "the Lands of the family
surnamed de Als, now Hals, so called from
the Barton and dismantled manor of Als, now
Alse and Alesa, in Buryan". The Norman
preposition seems to point to some Norman
origin. The word itself is more likely a pure-
ly Saxon one. dating from the invasions of
the fifth century or Danish, and thus was
brought over by the Vikings four centuries
before the Norman conquest. In Holland the
name existed and Franz Hals, the painter,
gave it renown. As a common noun and verb
the word was used from early times by the
English, and signifies in one case the neck and
in the other to embrace. The Halseys of
America are descended from Thomas Halsey,
of Hertfordshire, England, and Southampton,
Lonsr Island, and go back to John Halsey, of

Excerpt from "The Story of the Bronx,
1639-1912," by Stephen Jenkins, published by
Putnam & Sons:

A short distance this side of the Bridge by which
the Boston Road crosses the Hutchinson River, a
pleasant road leads down to the right to "Inver-
mere" known in ancient days as Hunts Landing.
There is a famous strawberry farm on this road a
short distance from the post-road. A few hundred
rods above Rattlesnake Brook, the White Plains
Road, now called Columbus Ave., branches off to the
left and passes by the ancient green in front of old
St. Pauls, its route being over the old Boston Road
of 1673 for some distance. As it sweeps down the
hill, it passes a gateway guarded by quaint and im-
posing white posts. This is the entrance to the
Halsey place, which was the executive mansion of
President John Adams, in October and November,
1797. several of his letters being dated from "East-
chester.'l During that year. Philadelphia, the fed-
eral capital, was visited by yellow fever, and Adams
took up his residence in the Halsey House, then
occupied by his daughter Abigail and her hsuband,
Col. \Vm. Smith. During the Revolution, the com-
munion service, the P.ililc and other valuables pre-
sented to St. Pauls Church by Queen Anne, were
buried upon this property and dug up after the war;
this was to prevent them from being looted by the
British, who used the church about half a mile
above the hospital and who frequently occupied this
section in force, so that it thus became the scene of
manv a raid and warlike encounter. At the time of
the Revolution, this house was occupied by the Vin-
cents, the Smith of the village of Eastchester.



The Brink family of America,

(the Brink) ; Brinkhuis (Brink house) ; Brink
horst (Brink grove) ; Brinkenberg (Mount
Brink) ; Brinkerhoff (a paved square) ; Dol-
dcrbrink (valley Brink). The word Brink
means park, square or villjige green. The
arms of the family are thus described:
"d'argent au boeuf de gueules, corne d'or,

et lambrequens d'argent et de gueules. Cinier :
