35 Stephen Ogden Thompson, son of Jacob Thompson and Hannah
Beach, b. Dec. 17, 1775, d. May 31, 1856, was named for his grand-
father, and for Joseph Ogden, second husband of his grandmother. Was
graduated at the College of New Jersey, 1797 ; installed pastor at Con-
necticut Farms, Nov. 16, 1802 ; m. Feb. 24, 1803, Henrietta Beach, dau.
of Major Nathaniel Beach, of Newark, N. J. In 1834 he removed to
northeastern Indiana, and there he died.

Tne children of Daniel Thompson and Penelope Carnes were :
^* Joseph, the oldest, who was never married, but died aged about 80, at

the homestead. 37]sjeiiy^ ^^g next, who was married in 1780 to

Schenck, and had two sons and one daughter, who married and settled
in Mendham ; also ^^ Sarah, who was married, late in life, to John Smith,
and lived near Mendham, and ^^ Abigail, who lived with their father as a
single woman. Another child, "*" Calvin, married Nelly Byram. He
bought a farm at Tuckerman's Plains, and built a tannery ; there he and
his wife died. •*' Luther, another child, b. 1760, d. 1855, m. in 1807
Rhuhama Chedister. It seems that there was also a '•-Daniel among the
children i^f Daniel and Penelope.

The children of Stephen Thompson and Susan Harris were : ''^ George
Harris ; b. Oct. 9, 1803. "''Nancy Isabel ; b. April 10, 1806 ; d. July

lives at Mendham. ■'^Alexander; b. Feb. 6, ; d. 1S35, at Charles-

Seventh Generation.

There were two children of Calvin Thompson and Nelly Byram ; one
of them, ""^ William, married Rebecca Voorhees.

The children of Luther Thompson and Rhuhama Chedister were :
"'Lewis A. ; b. 1809 ; m. Feb. 25, 1832, Jane Mase ( ) ; lives at
Kendallville, Ind. ; had a son, D. Headley, who volunteered for 3 years
in the War for the Union, was shot in the hip at the battle of Williams-
burg, and taken to Libby prison, and thence to Belle Isle and Salisbury ;
and at the last place he was nearly starved, and was reduced to 90 lbs.,
although he had weighed 190 when he enlisted ; he was nursed at
Trenton four weeks by his mother, and died a year after he had returned
home. Another child of Luther and Rhuhama, 5° John Byram, was born
181 1 ; m. Susan Brastow. A third was s' Emily ; b. 1814 ; m. to Aaron
Losey. 52,\ibert, another child ; deceased. Another child, 53 Rebecca
Ann, was born 182 1. ^'■C'a.Wxw, another child, b. Dec. 3, 1823, lives at
Basking Ridge, N. J. ; hem. Sept. 14, 1844, Margaret Voorhies ; their
son, Lewis A., was sheriff of Somerset Co., and afterwards State senator ;
their daughter, Fannie E. , d. July 7, 1890. It seems that there was also a
son, 55 Joseph, who at last account was keeping a store in New York City.

[Note. — The facts above stated were derived from Rev. Dr. John B. Thompson,
now of Trenton ; Lewis A. Thompson, of Kendallville, Ind. ; Calvin Thompson, of
Basking Ridge ; and Robert Thompson, of Mendham, N. J. 1

189 I.J Two Letters from George Washmgton. ij^n


Communicated by Rufus King, Esq., of Yonkers, N. V

Through the courtesy of H. E. H. Brereton, Esq., of Vonkers, the following
letters from George Washington are now published for the first time :

10"' Oct., 1783.

Your favor of the 25* ulto came to me by Thursday's Post. It
meets my thanks for the obliging expressions with which the information
respecting the deceased Mrs. Savage is conveyed. I think you judged
very properly in not sending the original Will of that Lady, whose death,
with the circumstances attending it, is much to be regretted.

She certainly merited very different treatment from her husband,
Docf Savage.

If the Will is not lengthy, you would do me a favor by transmitting
me a copy of it.

The Original, you will be so good as to retain in your hands, or de-
liver it to Mrs. Washington as she passes through Baltimore on her way
to Virginia.

I am Sir,

Y' Most Ob* & H*^' Serv*'

(Signed) G. Washington.
Mr. Fran= Moore,

Baltimore, Md.

Mount Vernon,
April 20, 1786.

Within these few days, I have received your letter of the 12*'', and
sometime ago, 1 recollect to have been favoured with another letter from
you, which, in the hurry of Business, got overlooked.

It is now more than Two years since, indirectly, I obtained a sight
of the deceased Mrs. Savage's Will. I then thought and still do think it
strange, that the Executors of this Will should never have made any offi-
cial communication thereof to the Trustees of that Lady in this country,
nor have made any direct enquiry concerning the situation of her affairs
here. These may be summed up in a few Words and will be found to
be as follows. When matters came to extremity between Docf Savage
and his Wife, and Mr. Fairfax and myself were obliged to put the trust
bond in suit to recover her annuity, the Docf made use of all the chican-
ery of Law and Lawyers to procrastinate the Suit, which the tardiness of
our LOurts (and during one period of the revolution the suspension of
Justice) but too well enabled him to effect.

It was, therefore, long before a Judgement at common law could be
obtained, and this was no sooner done than he threw the matter into
Chancery, where I am told (for 1 have had no share in the management
of this Business for the last Ten years, that is since I took the Command
of the American Forces) it has been ever since.

J CQ Sketch of James DePeyster Ogden. [July,

I believe Mr. Fairfax has done everything in his power to bring the
matter to issue, and I have heard, I thinlc from himself, that there is now
a probability of its happening soon. With great Truth, I can assure you
that not One Farthing of Mrs. Savage's annuity was ever paid to the
Trustees, whilst we have been obliged to advance Money out of our
own pocketts to carry on the prosecution, and whilst, moreover, from a
representation of the distress that Lady was involved in, I gave her a Bill
to the amount of f^^l. sterling on James Gildart of Liverpool, which is
still due to me.

This is the best Account I am able to give you of the Trust, and you
are at full liberty to communicate the purport of it to Mrs. Innis.

I am Sir, Your Most Obed' Serv',

James DePeyster Ogden, born in Jamaica, L. L, in 1790, was de-
scended from John Ogden, the first of his name in this country, who
resided in Stamford, Conn., about the time of its settlement. A few
years afterwards he removed to Long Island, where he acquired large
landed possessions at Hempstead, through patents, and at Southampton,
through purchase from the Indian sachem. He afterwards removed to
New Jersey, and was one of the founders of the town of Elizabeth.

In New Jersey the greater part of his descendants are to be found,
though there are others in New York and in Louisiana. Jacob Ogden,
M.D. , of the fifth generation in descent from John Ogden, resided in
Jamaica, L. I., to which place his father removed in 1746. Jacob married
Mary Reade DePeyster, daughter of James DeP. and Sarah Reade, and
their only child was James DePeyster Ogden, the subject of this sketch.

He entered business life as a clerk for Van Horn & Clarkson, of 129
Pearl Street, in 1805. Later he went to Europe for three years, as agent
