Luther d war da Jr. a prosperous farmer living on the ancestral
farm at outha-ipton, was descended froi Alexander dwards who came to this
country in 1640 and settled in pringfield but removed to Northampton in 1655.
'•'e served as oeloctraan as county commies loner, and in the state legislature.
Hie immediate ancestors were prominen^aen of the town, eerving In vatioue
official capacities. Re was a most public spirited man contributing liberally
to the town academy and to the old canal project, and left e bequeet for the
purchase of a town clock.



Rachel^ (Pearl) Kdwarda was an educated and highly intellectual
teachin/r school in outhampton for a number of years before her marriage.
3he lived to be ninety-six, and was cheerful, bright and entertaining to the
last. Hm took special interest in the young people who would gather about

her at times to hear her stories of the earlier days. She wrote the following
poem for her ninety-fourth birthday anniversary.



'■ i n y Old Home

I hail once more my natal day
Still in my tenement of clay

With many favors blest;
iow Re who placed the structure here
Can keep it up another year

If Ke should think it best .



long hath it stood through snow and rain,
Aad braved Life's fearful hurricane,

hile many a stronger fell.
The reason why we cannot see.
ut what to us seems mystery

The Builder knows full well.



But now 'tis seather worn and old,
iha steamer's heat and winter's cold

Pierce through the walls and roof;
'lis like a garment so worn out,
.o mend there seems no where-about,

3o gone is warp and woof.

The totterinjr pillars all are weak,
The poor old rusty hinges creak,

.he windows too are dii;
These slight discomforts we'll let pass,
For, looking darkly through a glass,
e catch a hopeful gleam.

Kature and reason tell us all
The withered frame ere long must fall,
hen, where, or how's unknown;
e'll leave that to the Architect,

. nd trust "in wisdon to direct
The taking of It down.

And when you see it prostrate lie
Let not a tear bedim your eye;

The tenant is not here.
But just beyond Time's little spno
She finds some quiet resting place,
o more to date her year.

And though she walks with you no more
The world will move just as before,

'Tis meet it should be so.
j.et each his house in order set
That he may leave without regret
henever called to go.
