66*- Abijah Wakeman, 6 of Greenfield, was a soldier
in the war of 18 12, in October and November, 18 14.
His father gave him a vessel which he built for him
when Abijah was eighteen. He worked hard to build
the boat, going on horseback after his day's work was
done, to the forge in Redding, to get iron and bring-
ing back what he could. The vessel was lost after a few
trips; Mr. Sturges was captain. Abijah then came
home, learned saddle-making and moved to New York
state. He m. May 27, 1802, Mary Buckley (b. 1788;
d. Oct. 29, 1826), and begat,

148. I. Charles, 7 b. 1803; d. Sept. 22, 1881.

IV. Caroline, 7 b. Feb. 11, 1818; d. Oct. 28,

1893.
She died at her brother's at Oyster Bay, N. Y., and
was a native of Greenfield Hill. Under circum-
stances of singular difficulties she prepared herself
as a teacher and was sustained by the convictions
of early piety and the friends they gained for her.
In commencing her career as a teacher in New York
City, and vicinity, she began her public work with
Principal McElligott of the old Mechanics School,
which antedated and helped to prepare for the suc-
cess of our public school system. For many years
after it was suspended she conducted, very success-
fully, a school for young ladies in New York City.
She was active in the sunday school of the Presby-
terian church under the pastorship of Drs. Potts,
Philips and J. W. Alexander, at Duane and Church
streets, who upheld at that day, on the west side of
the city, the cause of religion and education. They
were the active supports of a widespread influence,
the results of which still survive, although its pro-
moters seem to have vanished as completely as the
old church. She afterwards conducted a parochial
school near New Hamburgh, N. Y., and later
taught in Astoria, N. Y., until failing health pre-
vented. She will be remembered by those who
knew her for her faithful and consistent Christian
life and her devotion to the duties of every situa-
tion in which she was called to act.
