* James W. Denton was son of Ebenezer Denton of Braintree, Mass., whose
wife was Eliza W. Hollis, daughter of Capt. John Hollis of Braintree, and a
ladj of great worth. She was a descendant of Peregrine White of Pilgrim
fame. Two brothers, William and Rev. Paul Denton, are said to have come
from England and settled in Plymouth Co. as early as 1638. Rev. Paul
Denton removed to Long Island, while William Denton became the ancestor
of the Dentons of Braintree. Lida E. Denton is sister to Prof. James Edgar
Denton of Jersey City, N. J. ; and the father, James W. Denton, has been for
many years an instructor in the Hoboken Institute of Technology.

Sarah A. Lovell was daughter of Stephen Lovell of Weymouth, Mass., in
which town lived each of her successive ancestral generations from her own
back to the Lovell ancestor of 1635, who came from Weymouth, England.

t Ellen Lafarge was born in Hastings-on-Hudson, N. Y., Aug. 5, 1827, dau.
of Isaac and Jane Lafarge.

J Benjamin A.. See still enjoys rugged health in his advanced age of 82.
The Lafarge family in America have come from two brothers, so attested by
tradition, who sought America for the free worship of their Protestant beliefs.
One of them settled in the Hudson River valley, where his descendants are
more or less numerous at the present day. Many of them were active in the
Colonial Revolution and rendered all possible service to the common cause.
In their section, that part of the State adjacent to New York city, occurred
much contest, and in this hotbed of the struggle which lasted so long were
many personal experiences and trials of the Lafarge family. The great-grand-
father lived in the neighborhood of Dobbs Ferry. His farm was near the
Hessian camp and suffered accordingly. The family were obliged to keep
their food in a secret spaceway under the kitchen floor. The homestead was
but a few miles from either White Plains or from the place where Maj. Andrfi
was taken.

Col. C. Harrison Parker (see page 340) (Caleb A.,^
Lewis ^T Isaac ^^ Amos, ^ Andrew, '^ yohn,^ Hananiak,^ Thomas^ )^
son of Caleb Alexander Parker, was b. in Jackson, Miss.
From his early manhood he has followed the profession of
journalism. He has held prominent positions on many of the
leading journals of New Orleans, and has secured along with
his acknowledged great energy reputation as an uncompro-
mising reformer. In 1881 he was editor-in-chief of the Picay-
une, and he inaugurated a fight in the Democratic party which
culminated in the election of Gov. Nichols in 1888. He was
appointed State Tax Collector by Gov. Nichols. He was
one of the organizers of the Anti-Lottery League, and was
chosen chairman of the executive committee and conducted
the correspondence incident to the organization of the move-
ment throughout the State. He organized a company organ-
izing the New Delta, and he has been the editor and manager
of that paper since its foundation. The New Delta fought
the combined daily press of the State, backed as it was by
Lottery millions ; but its cause, though one of the most une-
qual, was one of the most gallant in the history of journalism.


A fragment of an autobiography by the late Rev. Theodore
Parker, which was commenced at Rome shortly before his
death, is printed here in its original condition. When he
found that he could write no more he closed the manuscript
with a caveat to the reader, which was printed in the com-
mencement of the first volume of the "Life and Correspond-
ence of Theodore Parker," by John Weiss. It is of much
interest to our family and is reprinted here.
