it is becoming better understood, industrious and zealous students are directing their
attention to the reproduction and publication of parish registers. The present vol-
ume is a careful and laborious contribution to this department of genealogical work.
Works of this kind, extending as they do over the years of the great emigrations, are
likely to be useful to Americati genealogists. A slight him, even if it do no more,
may point out the direction in which inquiries should be made.

Quarter Millennial Celebration of the City of Taunton, Massachu-
setts, Tuesday and Wednesday, June 4 and 5, 1889. Published by the City
Government, 18S9.

In this copiously illustrated octavo volume of 426 pages is carefully reproduced
all that was said and done on the first memorial occasion in the history of Taunton.
The celebration was a great success, and the Committee on Publication express the
hope that this well-printed work may suggest to some future historian a more complete
account of ancient Taunton than has yet been written. An index would have added
to the value of this entertaining volume.

The Cosmopolitan. An illustrated monthly magazine. Edited by Joiin Bris-
ben Walker. Vol. X., No. 2. New York.

Under its present proprietors the Cosmopolitan has steadily advanced until
it now takes rank with the Century, Harper s, and Sc^ibner's Magazines. In the
holiday number before us there is an exhaustive and interesting monograph on Field-
Marshal Von Moltke, written by General Wilson, who has the advantage of being a >
friend and correspondent of tlie illustrious German soldier, now in his ninety-first year. I
The article is accompanied by an admirable portrait, and other illustrations. »

The Livingstons of Callendar and their Principal Cadets. A Family
History. By Edward Brockholst Livingston, F. S. A Part II. 1890.

No. IV. Part II., of The Livingstons of Callendar begins with the Scottish
ancestry of the Livingstons and is carried down to Robert I ivingston, third Lord
of the Manor. The work, as in the previous numbers, shows great care in its
compilation. It contains the autographs and seals of the heads of the house in
Scotland, and numerous portraits of the Lords of the Manor of Livingston in this
country. This part closes with a copious appendix E. T.

Genealogies of the Raymond Families of New England. 1630-31 to
1866. Compiled by Samuel Raymond. 8vo, pp. 300. New York. Press of J. J,
Little & Co. 1886.

This work, "The Raymond Genealogy," deserves much praise. It is carefully
arranged and has an excellent index. The author adds a history of the Raymonds
both in England and on the Continent. There is also a number of pages devoted to
the roll of patriots of this family, who served their country in our several wars, a
record of which any family might well be proud. E. i".

The Dows or Dowse Family in America. 1642-1890. Compiled by hzxo
Milton Dows. 8vo, pp. 348. Lowell, Mass., 1890.

It is evident that much time and labor has been spent in collecting the data for
this genealogy. The descent is traced from Lawrence Dows, who came to this
country previous to the year 1642. The work is carefully compiled, well printed, and
has a good index. " The list of those who served in war," from King Philip's War
to those engaged in the late Civil War (some ninety in all) is an interesting feature
of the volume. e- t.

The Bartow Family in England. By the Rev. Evelyn P. Bartow. Provi-
•dence, R. I., 1890. Illustrated.

This work, which completes Mr. Bartow's former volume, does him great credit.
It is the result of much care and study. Pains have been taken to verify his state-
ments. More than half the book consists of original sources of information, wills,
xecords, and the like. It is the work of a careful and accomplished genealogist.

«^*-son : in the early church records at New Brunswick, N. J., the
name appears without the/>, and also with it.

The parentage of Archibald has not been ascertained. He is sup-
posed to have been of the Perth Amboy line. His name is not found in
the baptismal records of New Brunswick, nor of New York City ; and the
family records of the Elizabcthtown line do not contain his name. He
was of Scotch descent.

He was received, on confession, by the church at N. B., Aug. 10,
1 74 1, and his name recorded Tompson. His wife was received, on
confessic n, Nov. 9, 1750, " Coba Scheurman buys vrouw van Archabel

Strycker and Antje De Riemer, in the judgment of the present writer :
but this parentage is questioned.

Captain John, and his cousin, James Schuurman, whose name has
come down to us with the spelling Schureman, were taken prisoners by
the British at Lawrence's Brook (" Laurens ") and were transferred to New
N'ork, where they were confined in the " sugar-house, " and there they
were befriended by a Tory named Kesick, Kisuyck, or Kissock, for whom
he named one of his children, somewhat to the annoyance of the son,
but the name very justly adhered to him, as a memorial of kindness.
The Captain lived at New Brunswick, where his son John was graduated at
Queens College, 1794, until 1798, when he removed, with his family, to
Charlton, N. Y., and settled down at Fonda's Bush, now BrQadalbin.
His son Peter lived at New Brunswick, subsequently.
