53. .ViiAZiAii^ Beainard ( ll'i7/(>(»i-*, Stephen^, Daniel^, Daniel^)
of Westchester Soc., town of Colchester, New London Co.,
Conn.; ui. (by Jacob Scales, pastor of Second Congrega-
tional Chvu-ch in Colchester), March 29, 1824, Hnldah
Foote, b. Dec. 4, 1791, dan. of Nathaniel and- Abigail
(Foote) Foote of AVcstchester, Conn. His life was spent
in liis native town, Colchester, Westchester Soc. In his
earlier years he taught school for several seasons with suc-
cess ; later he occupied many positions of honor and trust.
lie was acting Justice of the jjeace from 1828 to 1835,
inclusive, and in 1839. He represented his town in the
legislature during the sessions of 1829 and 1830 with much
credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. Being
often called upon to settle local differences among his
townsmen, he managed them \\'\\\\ so iiiiicli tact that he got
the title among his ni'i,i:lil"ii-s nl' l)('in<;' the peace maker.
He was a man of large and coimiiaiuling figure, being six
feet and one inch in height and correspondingly heavy.
Possessing more than an ordinary degree of intelligence
and of strict integrity, he enjoyed the honor and respect of
his associates during life and was lamented at death.
He was a farmer, having built his house at the time of his
marriage on the site where his grandfather built when he
settled in the Southwest district, Westchester Society.
She was a teacher many seasons, having taught one
summer at Cold Spring, Long Island. She was of a
quiet and gentle disposition, social and pleasing in her man-
ners, and much respected and beloved by her relatives and
friends. If the poor needed a helper or friend, she was
ever ready to sympathize witli them and to render such aid
as time and strength would permit her to do. The follow-
ing words of King Lemuel in Proverbs, Chapter 31, are
a]iplicable to her: "She layeth her hands to the spindle,
and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her
hands to the poor: yea, she reaclieth forth her hands to tlie
necd5^ She openeth her moutli willi wisdom: and in her
tongue is the law of kindn<'Ks. She looketh well tn the
ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idle-
ness." She was blind the eight last years of her life. Mr.
Amaziah Brainard d. April 1, 1841, ae. 60 yrs., 9 nios.,
19 ds. Mrs. Huldah (Foote) Brainard* d. at Hartford,
Conn., Aug. 9, 1881, ae. 89 yrs., 8 mos., 5 ds. She was
buried in the cemetery in the Southwest district in West-
chester, Conn., by the side of her husliand.
