610. Ursox Thomas^ Brainard {Hezehiah^, Jesse', Eliakim\

Gideon^, James-, Daniel^) of , Geauga Co., Ohio;

m., June 19, 1853, in Ohio, Orissa Ann McGee, b. May 2,
1835, in Hillsboro, N. H., dau. of Solomon and Fannv
(Wellman) McGee, both of Leicester, JS*. H. He received
his education at the district school, and graduated at
Geauga Seminary, at which place he was the schoolmate
of the late James A. Garfield. For several years he was en-
gaged alternately in school teaching and farming.

Shortly after marriage, he removed to Iowa, the then far
west, where he settled on a farm in York Township, Tama
Co., in the central part of the state. The journey was ac-
complished in the then fashionable " Prairie schooner," or
covered wagon. Tama Co. was at this time very sparsely
settled, owing to the fact that the reservation of the
Muszuakee Indian, a remnant of the Sacs and Fox tribe,
was here located. At lirst the nearest neighbors to the
Brainards were two and one-half miles, and between set-
tlements one could ride 15 or 20 miles without seeing a
human habitation. He had to go 40 miles to mill, and it
took nearly a week; the roads were not as good in those
days. Persons who were so unfortunate as to have only
oxen, and they were in the majority, required a much
longer time.

Farming, however, was ne\-cr to his taste, so after a few years
he turned his attention to mercantile pursuits. He learned
the jeweler's trade, and was for some time proprietor of a
jeweler's store. He early evinced a desire for the law, the
study of which he pursued for many years in the same
school as Abraham Lincoln, viz., the garret, that is, he ob-
tained the books and read them as he could get the time
while keeping store. He was admitted to the bar in 1ST9,
gave up mercantile pursuits and devoted himself wholly to
the law. He held the office of justice of the peace 14 con-
secutive years, at Traer, Iowa, and was three times elected
Mayor on the Eepublican ticket. He also held the office of
town assessor one term. He retired from active life in
1889, owing to very poor health. The vn-iter once heard
an associate lawyer remark that " Squire Brainerd (as he
was universally called) was the best versed man in the law
in the State of Iowa." He was manager of the St. John
Manufacturing Co. He lived in Traer, Iowa, afterwards

■ in Cedar Eapids, Iowa.

A friend said of him, " He was one of the most honest, up-
right men I ever knew ; thoroughly temperate, a Cliristian,
whose influence for good was felt wherever he lived, and a
man who squarely met all the duties and responsibilities of
life. The good wife who assisted and cheered him through
12 years was living in health in 1895. Mr. Orson Thomas

1844, dau. of Joseph M. and Electa C. (Laflin) Boies of
Saugerties, N. Y. He graduated from Yale College, 1859 ;
was a member of Psi Upsilon and Phi Beta Kappa; spent
his college vacations on United States Coast Survey.
Studied medicine at Jefferson Medical College, Philadel-
phia, being also office pupil of Prof. S. D. Gross, and
demonstrator of anatomy in the private school of Dr. D.
Hayes Agnew. At the breaking out of the Civil War he
applied for admission to medical corps of United States
regular army; was examined in New York with 94 others
and passed fifth in rank. Ordered to Washington and put
in charge of the General Hospital, established in Columbia
College buildings. This had 600 beds, was frequently
visited by President Lincoln, and was thought by the
authorities to be sufficient for the coming struggle. When
the war closed there were over 20,000 beds in the anny
hospitals of Washington, and Dr. Brainerd himself had
charge of one elsewhere containing 3,500. In January,
1862, was ordered to Port Eoyal, S. C, was for a time on
the staff there of Gen. T. W. Sherman, and was then as-
signed to duty with the regular array batteries of the de-
partment. Served with these about two years, until after
the surrender of Fort Wagner on Morris Island, on one oc-
casion, at the battle of Pocataligo, himself bringing away a
battery whose officers had all been disabled and ammuni-
tion exhausted. Was then put in charge of the hospital
steamer " Cosmopolitan," carrying to New York wounded
and sick soldiers from such southern ports as were in Union
possession. Later he was ordered to Philadelphia as execu-
tive officer of the Mower General Hospital, of which he
was subsequently in charge, as he was afterwards of the
Broad Street, McClellan, and Bristol Hospitals. At the
end of the war he woimd up all of these and others, dis-

1868, he became its secretary, removed to New York, and
then to Montclair, N. J. In 1873 he resigned from this
company and built a set of powder works of his ovn\ at
York, Pa. These he sold in 1876 and removed to Canada,

some of the large United States explosive companies. In
December, 1876, he bought tlie controlling stock of the
Hamilton and Windsor Powder Companies; was President
of the Hamilton Powder Company for 28 years, during
which it became one of the leading manufacturing concerns
in Canada. On his sixty-seventh birthday he had a slight

father of Mrs. Braincrd, Capt. Darius Dickinson, who was
9-11/^ years of age. He was a Freemason, and probably
the oldest member of that fraternity in this state. Mr.
Brainerd was 75 years old, and his wife 71 years
old. For several years she has had failing eyesight,
but during the past seven years she has made 30
bed quilts, one of which contains over 9,000 pieces;
most of the sewing had to be done with the work so near her
face that at times it would seem impossible for her to es-
cape injury. She has done her household work alone
through 50 years of domestic life, and reared a large fam-
ily. He lived in Turkey Hill district, Haddam.

Capt. Brainerd was a leading ship builder on the Connecticut
River for many years, building no less than 42 vessels anri
sailing craft for George E. and William H. Goodspeed. He
engaged in the business when only 18 years old, and at 21
was entrusted with the management of the ship yard. He
was one of the first Connecticut men to have anything to do
with steam vessels, and was among the first to make the trip
with the old steamboat " Enterprise." Of late years he
has given his attention to farming, and controls a large
tract of land of 200 acres or more in Haddam, Conn.

Among the guests present was Capt. Chauncey Dickinson, a
brother of Mrs. Brainerd, who was married the same day
with herself. A notable fact concerning the costiimes
