Eclipse – A Debriefing

Eclipse – A Debriefing

I read A LOT about photographing the 2017 eclipse. I’m glad I did. I managed to come away with a few shots I’m proud of. And now that the 2ish minutes of taking photos of the totality are likely over for the next 7 years… I thought I’d put down some thoughts for myself to reference later, and anyone else thinking of trying to capture some amazing pictures of a total solar eclipse in their area.

My Photos:

My Notes:

I had a difficult time using my remote trigger and bracketed shots. Sometimes it would fire off all three and stop (like I think it should) and other times it’d get one or two shots into the next set. This causes an issue where you can’t change settings on the camera until you finish out the bracketed set. This caused me to take a lot of extra photos at the same exposure, while frantically trying to figure out where in the group of three I was. Then when I started to adjust the camera, I went the wrong way, and took shots at very long exposure settings that resulted in washed out useless images.

The blurriness from Image9 could be caused by slightly off focus, or the slightly long exposure time. Many images I took seem to be slightly out of focus- and the two changes I would make for next time would be shooting for shorter and shorter exposure times, as well as shooting tethered to a laptop with a large (and well shaded) screen for instant feedback. The infinite focus on my lens was technically too far, and I had to bring it back just a little to get the sun in focus correctly. If this was bumped, it could throw the next few sets of photos way out of whack. I was constantly checking the focus. Some gaffer tape to lock down the focus might be a good idea for next time, once I am confident it’s dialed in.

I think a big part of the chaos was not knowing where to start the camera. Once I removed the eclipse filter- I had no idea what kind of exposures were going to be needed. Hopefully, the info in this post can assist myself and others as a starting point for a future eclipse. Image1-Image3 and Image10 were all using an eclipse filter. Image4-Image9 were unobstructed, as we were in totality. (Image9 of the diamond ring is technically NOT during totality- and my filter when back on immediately after that photo was snapped.)

200mm seemed to work well. I shot at f/5.0, for no reason other than to stay away from the limits of the lens.  I might open that up some more next time, or research that a little bit more to see if I can, to get better shutter speeds.

I’m still on the fence if this would have made for more amazing photos: Opteka 650-1300mm (with 2x- 1300-2600mm) — The f-stop would be atrocious if there was any zooming at all, although it can be argued that going over 650mm is useless if you want to capture corona during the totality. The graphic from MrEclipse.com should be referenced for this debate in the future:

MrEclipse also has a great chart for recommended shutter speeds.

Overall, taking photos of the initial phases of the eclipse with the eclipse filter on was easy. Plenty of time, conditions not changing that much, very little to actually worry about preparing for. The totality time is what brings all the stress, regrets, and thoughts for next time.

2017 IndyCar Indy 500 Official Frequencies for CHIRP, Baofeng Radios

If you’ve wanted to listen in to team radio and track announcements- now you can do it yourself for about the same price as rental! Plus you’ll be able to do it every year afterwards at no extra cost.

>>> Download Chirp CSV Frequencies export file <<<

>>> View Frequencies List <<<

>>> Bonus Frequencies to Try <<<

2015_StartV1_1600x800Cars are input on channels that correspond with their number. So if you see a car pulling into the pits, or watching the lead change- perhaps a crash just happened- you should be able to type in the car number into your radio to skip directly to that frequency.  All car and track frequencies are set with “Duplex off” to avoid accidentally transmitting on these frequencies.

I use CHIRP to program my Baofeng radio, and then export it to a CSV file that anyone else can use to import, or use as reference for a different programming method. You are free to use it and share with your family and friends. All driver frequencies are taken from the official spotters guide. Additionally, I have added in frequencies that in the past have included the PA system, race officials, broadcast radio feed, and TV feeds. Some of these might not work- but they are there to experiment with. (Channels 116-127)

I’ve added the NOAA weather frequency on channel 000 for this year.

Finally- my export includes local Indianapolis repeaters and national calling frequencies for HAM operators. You must hold a Armature Radio License in order to transmit on these frequencies- but you can always listen! (Channels 100-115) (Learn more about obtaining your HAM license here)

The above armorial bearings represent, with slight differences, eleven 
out of fifteen families of this name, as given in Burke's General Armory. 
[See pp. 15 and 16 of this work.] Both families were of Co. Kent at 
various periods. It has not yet been possible to connect the New-England 
families with their English ancestry. 



Note. — Some of the elder New-England families have in their possession a coat 
of arms, similar to the above on the left. They were evidently painted by John Coles, 
and their genuineness is considered doubtful by heraldic authorities.

PREFACE. 



At the solicitation of friends I submit the following genealogical 
records to those of the family who are immediately or remotely in- 
terested. In view of the hundreds of personal subjects treated, to- 
gether with the impossibility of producing a publication of this 
nature without errors and imperfections, it is with diffidence that 
it is sent forth from the press, especially so, since the author con- 
siders who will be his readers. Primarily, it was not my purpose to 
publish a genealogy to be exposed to the animadversion of any possi- 
ble censorious critic. This is not intended to be a work of literary 
merit, otherwise it would have been submitted to an expert, and re- 
vised before publication. Therefore, if any thing is found of error or 
is peculiar in orthography, the compiler would ask the indulgence 
of a discriminating posterity. 

I have spared no pains to give a perfect record of the families 

represented, though not as full as I have desired. A few accounts 

sent me by correspondents are at variance with the records or other 

data. These I have harmonized as best I could. The biographical 

sketches of most persons mentioned are necessarily brief, while others 

are more full. Undoubtedly, not a few whose history is very briefly 

sketched are as much deserving of an extended notice as any who 

have received it ; but their merits failed to reach the author. The 

Manns in England were honored in successive periods with royal 

Ejivor, and their offspring were, no doubt, among the early fathers of 

brjur country. There is a growing interest at the present day mani- 

thpsted by the descendants of the early settlers to know the names 

a lnd history of their ancestors. This interest is laudable, and the 

ratification generally gives genuine satisfaction to the living, and 

ill be the means of insuring an invaluable legacy to the coming 

eneration. Moreover, pedigrees are invaluable aids to the student 

f history. 

The plan adopted in this work is the comprehensive one in use by 

ar New England Historic Genealogical Society, and is easily under - 

jood. The children of each head of a family are to be found

directly under his or her name. When the information concerning 
the children is limited, and their posterity not numerous, the whole 
record is generally given at once. When otherwise, the name is 
designated by a number at the left, carried forward, on a subsequent 
page, in brackets, and makes the starting point of a new family. The 
names in Italics which are in parenthesis at the beginning of each 
new family, by the aid of the exponent number at the right, carry the 
line directly back to the original ancestor. These small exponent 
figures at the right of christian names should be carefully noted, to 
determine at sight to what generation the subject belongs, and to 
assist in tracing out each family. The abbreviations common to all 
works of this kind are used to facilitate the labor and lessen the cost 
of the book. To trace a line of descent in the American families, 
seek the Index.* 

In the prosecution of the work the author is indebted to the valu- 
able library of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and 
to the obliging custodians of both Plymouth and Massachusetts 
colonial and probate records. I am under great obligations to those 
who have procured and sent me dates and facts, and herewith express 
to them all my sincere thanks. For special information I am indebted 
to Alrick H. Man, Esq., and Rev. Brady E. Backus, D.D., of New 
York city; Henry Dutch Lord, Esq., of Boston ; Herbert A. Backus, 
Esq., of Detroit, Mich. ; Addison 0. Miller and Frederick G. Fincke, 
Esqrs., of Utica, N. Y; Matthew D. Mann, M.D., of Buffalo, N. Y. 
Albert Holbrook, Esq., of Providence, R. I. ; Horace Mann, Esq., of 
Natick, Mass.; Stafford Mann, Esq., of Lincoln, R.I. ; Mrs. Charlotte 
M. Phelps, of Hebron, Conn., and many others. For a portion of 
the records of the Randolph (Mass.) family line, I am indebted to 
the efforts of Miss Luthera H. Mann, of that town ; and for many 
Ohio records thanks are due Mrs. Ellen S. Lockwood, of East 
Plymouth, Ohio. The printers of this Memorial are also deserving 
of thanks for the creditable manner in which they have performed 
their part of the work. 

If the perusal of these pages, by this and future generations, should 
serve to animate any latent desires for a nobler life and higher cul- 
ture, and if its readers are stimulated to guard with jealous care the 
fair fame they inherit, and emulate the heroic examples of virtue, 
excellence, and pious endeavor of their ancestors, in their love for 
civil and religious liberty, then the labor and money expended on 
this compilation may not have been in vain.

INTRODUCTION. 



The name Man or Mann* appears very early in English history, 
and, no doubt, earlier in Germany as a patronymic ; but as the author 
has not made any extended effort to trace the genealogical order of 
the family beyond the confines of the United States, the sphere of 
this volume is necessarily confined to this country, and to the period 
since the beginning of the first settlements made here by our honored 
forefathers. A few general facts which are gleaned from various 
English records, and inserted on the first few pages of this work, are 
sufficient to show that the family have lived in England from a remote 
period. There were a number of the name who early left the Old 
Country, came to America, settled, and had families. Of the fore- 
going, those whom I have found recorded in history are mentioned in 
this volume, in order, if possible, to stimulate and facilitate more ex- 
tended research in the future. These families may be found on the 
pages immediately following the English records. Whether any of 
these first settlers were brothers, or otherwise related, the author has 
not been able to determine. The branch that is mainly and more 
fully treated in this volume, is the line of which Richabd Man, of 
Scituate, Mass., was the head. The descendants of this early New 
England settler have been pretty thoroughly traced, and their lives 
briefly sketched. The records of this family occupy the main body of 
this work. 

an< 

ojj In the earliest English records the name is generally written, "Man"; in the 
z! b. and 18th centuries both ways, — "Man," "Mann." Edward Man, compt. of the 
■"^ t of Ipswich, Eng., in 1634-5, entered his name both ways, thus — "Edward 
m( a," " Edward Mann." Most of the families in this country gradually changed from 

!an" to "Mann" about the time of the Revolution. A very few of the influential 

lilies still hold to the single " n," thus, " Man." I have adopted a uniform method 
H|his work, and have written the name with the single "n" up to and including the 

jxth generation ; starting in the fifth generation and on to the present with the 

able " n," thus, " Mann." — Ed. 



8 INTRODUCTION-. 

In briefly treating the various other Manns in this country as pre- 
liminary to the main (Richard Man) branch, I have made consider- 
able effort to trace the descendants of William Man, the early settler 
of Cambridge, Mass., through his only son, Rev. Samuel, of 
Wrentham, Mass., and down a few generations (some lines to the 
present), in order to separate* and distinguish these families from 
the Richard Man branch, above alluded to ; for I have found persons 
bearing the name who had supposed that these two lines were of one 
and the same branch, though without apparent reason. 

* The late R. R. Hinman, of Hartford, in his "Early Puritan Settlers of Connec- 
ticut," claimed [erroneously] that the Hebron branch of the name in Conn, descended 
from William of Cambridge. An extract of a " correspondence " may show wherein, 
no doubt, he was led unadvisedly to this belief. 

" Hartford, Dec. 9, 1847. 
To Gov. J. S. Peters, of Hebron, Conn. 

Sir : — To-day, R. R. Hinman, Esq., and Dr. Hitchcock called upon 
me, with an old pamphlet containing some historical facts of the family. The Dr.'s 
mother was a Mann before marriage. I want to inquire at what time did/3-randfather 
John Mann come to Hebron, from what place did he come, who was his father, or 
what was the name of my great-grandfather, and where did he reside? * * * * 
I give some of the names and dates taken from the pamphlet, etc. 

Benning Mann." 

In this pamphlet, William Mann the early Cambridge settler is mentioned, also his 
descendants. Nathaniel (grandson of William) is underscored as being the Hebron 
ancestor. — Ed. 

The following is a brief extract of Gov. J. S. Peters's reply. 

"My Dear Sir: 

Your grandfather, John Mann, stated to me many years ago that 
his ancestors came from England to Massachusetts, that his father emigrated to Mans- 
field in this State (Conn.), and gave the town his name, Mans-field, from thence to 
Hebron, and located on the farm that Cyrus lives on, and that his name was Nathaniel. 
Nathaniel, John, Andrew, and Cyrus have succeeded each other in the possession of 
the farm. J. S. Peters." 

The reader will readily see in the personal sketches of the family, in the body of 
this book, that John Mann above must have been in error. Mansfield, Conn., was 
probably named in honor of Col. Moses Mansfield, of New Haven. Nathaniel, alluded 
to in the above pamphlet, was grandson of William, and died in Wrentham, Ma*«., 
leaving a will. Nathaniel of Hebron was grandson of Richard of Scituate. — Ed.'^ \ 



Brabatfon of tije name iWan or JWann, 



R. Ferguson, London, 1864, has the following derivation in the " Teu- 
tonic Name System," p. 57 : " There are several names of which the 
etymological meaning is simply Man * * * * And the words seem 
to be used, par excellence, as we apply the terms manly and beautiful. * * 
* * At the head of the list is Mann, which is in a more direct manner 
connected with hero worship than the rest, if, as is probably the case, its 
use as a name is to be traced up to the Mannus of Tacitus, the fabled son 
of the hero or god Tuisco, and the founder of the German nation. We do 
not, however, meet with the name in after times, at least in its simple form, 
before the seventh century, though in a compound form it is found as early 
as the fourth century. Two other forms are Men and Mon, the latter of 
which was Anglo-Saxon, and is still used in the Lowland Scotch."

ENGLISH RECORDS. 



One of the earliest notices of the family name of Man, in England, is 
to be found in the Domesday Book in 1086, where " Willelmus Alius Mamie " 
(William the son of Man) is mentioned as a landholder in the County of 
Hants. In " Our English Surnames," by C. W. Bardsley, M.A., the 
names Henry le Man and Richard le Man are cited to show the most 
ancient form of the name of the Man family, but no other particulars are 
given. A book entitled " Patronymica Britannica " states that the name 
Man signifies in old French, "Norman.' 7 Also, that in Dutch, de Man 
means " the man," a hero. — (lb.) 

Cornelius de Man, a celebrated (Scotch?) painter, was born at Delft, 
Holland, 1621, and died there in 1706. 

tin 1322, Reginald le Man, of Diss., was Lord, who, in 1337, left it 
( Watton's Manor) to Alice, his wife, etc. — (Blom. Hist. Norfolk Co.)

In the 31st of Edward III. [1358], John le Man held a third part of the 
manor of John de Denham, etc. — (lb.) 

In the 13th of Richard II. [1390], William Ode, who married Matild., 
dau. and heir of John Man, held their part of this manor till about the end 
of the reign of King Henry VI., when it was conveyed to Richard Sparwe, 
Gent., of Oxburgh, who, in 1482, settled on a chantry which he then founded 
in the Church of Oxburgh. — (lb.)

A very ancient family of Mans is referred to in the History of Northamp- 
tonshire (by Bridges, in Astor Library, N. Y.), as having lived in that 
County about 1326, and, from that time on, William, Robert and Thomas 
Man are mentioned. 

John Man, A.M. [son of John Man, of London, Gentleman], was war- 
den of Merton College, Oxford, 1562. In 1565 he was made Dean of 
"Gloster," and in August, 1567, was sent by Queen Elizabeth on an em- 
bassy to Spain, where he was accused of speaking irreverently of the 
Pope, and was excluded from the Court. He was recalled, and died in 
1568. — (For Arms and Tabular Ped. see Vis. Essex.)

Note. — The record of the foregoing Mans of Poole, Eng., is from a work entitled, 
" Man, Needles, and Hambleton Families." It says : The MS. record of the Man family 
was originally commenced in Poole, England, by John Man, b. Oct. 17, A.D. 1495, d. 
1578. It appears that the account of births of this branch was preserved up to 
the year 1600. From this time up to 1629 there was a lapse in the records (a very 
unfortunate circumstance for the American genealogist). John Man was mayor, 
A.D. 1539, and other years. Edward Man, mayor in 1589. Another Edward Man, 
mayor, 1663. 

Among the oldest records in the church at Poole are two brass plates, about '0x10 
inches each, saved from the old church, and now screwed on the inside of a closet 
door of the vestry. One reads : " Here lyeth the body of Edward Man of this Town 
and Couty of Poole, Marchat, who e died Deceb. XXn., An Domi, M.D.C.XXII. His 
wife Eleanor made this Memoriall of Him." 

" This marchant Man purchast a Jewell rare 
When to gain Christ (God and man) he took care."

Robert Mann, Esq. (possibly a son or grandson of Edward of Ipswich), 
who settled at Linton, in Kent, Eng., was father of Sir Horace, Galfridus, 
James and Edward [the three last were army clothiers]. Sir Robert 
Walpole, in 1737, appointed Mr. Horace Mann to the English Legation at 
Florence, Italy, and two years later to be Minister, which office he retained 
through life. He died at Florence, unmarried, Nov. 16, 1786, as. 85. " On 
the 15th of Feb. 1755, Mann was raised to the dignity of a Baronet, with 
reversion to his brother Galfridus." Mr. Chute, at Sir Horace Mann's 
request, furnished him with a motto for Mann's shield of arms, and in part 
allusion to the goats in Mann's arms, happily suggested "Per ardua sta- 
Mes, — steady in difficult places. "All your friends approve it," wrote 
Walpole. " It alludes so well to the goats," wrote Mann, " that I am justi- 
fied in taking it." Sir Horace in life never returned to his native land; but 
by a pre-arrangement with his distant cousin Sir Horace Walpole, son of 
Sir Robert, the Prime Minister, he maintained a continuous correspondence 
with him, covering a period of more than forty years. " Sir Horace Mann's 
body was deposited at Linton (Kent), where Walpole had erected a monu- 
ment to his twin brother, Galfridus." The Baronetcy reverted to Horace, 
the eldest son of Galfridus, — thus, the second Sir Horace Mann; but the 
latter "did not again marry." Dr. Doran, in his work entitled "Maun 
and Manners at the Court of Florence," adds: "Linton, however, has con- 
tinued iu the family 'by the distaff.' Catharine, daughter of Galfridu/

Mann, in 1771 became the wife of James Cornwallis, fourth Earl Corn- 
wallis [Arms below], and subsequently Bishop of Litchfield and Coven- 
try. Their son James, the fifth and last Earl inheriting Linton, dropped 
his family name, and took that of Mann only. This last Earl's only 
surviving daughter, Lady Julia Mann, married in August, 1862, William 
Archer Amherst, Viscount Homesdale, eldest son of Earl Amherst." 
'' The House is fine," said Walpole, in 1757, " and stands like the Citadel 
of Kent. The whole country is its garden. So rich a prospect scarce wants 
my Thames." " The house is occupied by Lord and Lady Holmesdale, and 
Mann's old home could hardly be in better keeping." (See Sir Horace 
Mann's letters in Walpole's works ; also, Dr. Doran's " Mann and Man- 
ners," the latter rich in illustrations of Court life in Italy, from 1740 to 
1786.)

CAMBRIDGE OR WRENTHAM BRANCH. 



1. WILLIAM MAN,* who early settled at Cambridge, Mass., it 
is said, was born in England (Kent County?) about the year 1607, ' 
and was the youngest of eleven children. He married first, in 1643, 
Mary Jarred (who also -came from England). He married for a 
second wife Alice Tiel, June 11, 1657. He died in 1662, leaving a 
will and schedule of his property without his signature (see Mid. 
Prob. Rec). His only child and son was: 

2. i. Rev. Samuel 3 Man,| B.A., of Wrentham, Mass., b. in Cambridge, 
July 6, 1647. The record says "his parents were esteemed truly 
religious," and that they early designed their son for the ministry. 
He was graduated at Harvard College in 1665. May 13, 1667, com- 
menced to teach in Dedham, and taught five years there. He 
preached to the small society in the part of Dedham, now Wrentham, 
till March SO, 1676, when the inhabitants were drawn off by reason 
of " an Indian war," after which the Indians burnt all the dwellings 
but two. He appears again in Dedham as a teacher, in the years 
1676, 1677 and 1678. Nov. 13, 1677, the town of Rehoboth " voted, 
that an invitation might be given to Mr. Man for to be helpful in the 
work of the ministry for this winter." Early in the spring of 1678 
he was engaged to preach at Milton ; but returned to Wrentham, 
with "divers of the inhabitants," Aug. 21, 1680. There he con- 
tinued his ministerial labors till a church of ten persons was gath- 
ered; April 13, 1692 f was ordained and preached his own ordination 
sermon. Oct. 26, 1699, " in dead of night," his dwelling house with 
the church records were burnt. It is said that he was much afflicted 
with bodily weakness and infirmities, and that for twenty-five years 
before his death did not go out of his own town. One of the first 
men of the Province said that " he was not only a very good, but 



* From one who has made research in England ; 

" I am inclined to believe that William was eldest son of Sir Charles Man, of 
Hatton Bradock, in Kent, knighted in 1625 by Charles I." 

(Ext. Alrick H. Man's letter). ' (See Tab. Ped., p. 13.) 

f What is supposed to be the private record of Rev. Samuel Man, reads : " Oct. 25, 
1699. My house was burned and all records," and as his " memory doeth serve my 
father William came from the other England and was the youngest of eleven children, 
born about the year 1607." — (Ext. letter of William R. Mann, Esq., of Sharon, Mass.)

children who were soon to enter the married state (New Eng.

nothing of his worth publishing. He died at Wrentham, May 22,

(19.) HORACE 6 MANN,. LL.D. {Thomas," Nathan? Thomas? 
Samuel? William 1 ), statesman and educational philosopher, was born 
in Franklin, Mass., May 4, 1796. He was graduated at Brown 
University, and commenced the study of law. Elected to the Massa- 
chusetts Legislature in 1827. His first speech was in favor of re- 
ligious liberty ; his second a plea for railways. He was the founder 
of the State Lunatic Asylum, and an advocate of temperance. He 
removed to Boston, and about 1836 was President of the State 
Senate. He edited the Revised Statutes of the State, and was for 
eleven years Secretary of the Board of Education. For many years 
he devoted his whole time to the cause of education, introduced 
normal schools, paid committees, etc. In 1843 he visited the educa- 
tional establishments in Europe, and his report was reprinted both 
in England and America. He was an incessant worker, and con- 
ducted a large correspondence. He was elected to Congress in 
1848, as successor to John Quincy Adams, and opposed the extension 
of slavery. At the close of his congressional term he accepted the 
presidency of Antioch College, at Yellow Springs, Ohio, where he 
labored successfully until his death, Aug. 2, 1859. For a more par- 
ticular account, see "Life of Horace Mann," by his widow, Mrs.

early advantages ; but they inspired in him an adoration of learning ; and late in life 
he enjoyed some small opportunities of acquisition, of which he made the most. His 
naturally logical mind served him in his self- education, and the mere dry bones were 
but a trifling element in his development. He said of himself in a letter to a friend, 
' My teachers were very good people, but they were very poor teachers. Looking 
back to the school days of my mates and myself, I cannot adopt the line of Virgil, 

1 fortunatos nimium sua si bona norint ! ' 

I deny the bona. With the infinite universe all around us, all ready to be daguerreo- 
typed upon our souls, we were never placed at the right focus to receive its glorious 
images. YVith all our senses and our faculties glowing and receptive, how little were 
we taught ! or rather how much obstruction Avas thrust in between us and nature's teach- 
ings. Of all our faculties, the memory for words was the only one specially appealed to. 
All ideas outside of the book were contraband articles, which the teacher confiscated or 
rather flung overboard.' These few words are a key to his character and life-work. 
That others should be put ' at the right focus ' was the aim of his life. He studied 
law at the Litchfield School, and entered upon a great career, but he turned aside 
from it to deA'ote himself to education ; and after remodelling the original common 
school laws of Massachusetts, he accepted the presidency of Antioch College, where 
unsectarianism and co-education were the basal principles. His training in the Legis- 
lature of his native State, where he held the highest position, gave him a great ad- 
vantage in training young men for life. A sketch of his uneventful life — uneventful 
except to himself — may be found in Livingstone's Magazine of eminent Americans, 
which carries him to the period when he left his native State for Ohio. His congres- 
sional life is embodied in a volume of his speeches, and his educational essays have 
been published in two volumes since his death.

REHOBOTH BRANCH. 



JAMES MAN's wife, of Rehoboth, Mass., was "presented to 
court for continuing a meeting from house to house on the Lord's 
Day, Oct. 2, 1650."— (Plymouth Court Rec.) 

JAMES MAN (probably the foregoing), is found among the " en- 
rolled freemen " at Newport, R. I., May 17, 1653. An account of 
a portion of his will, made Nov. 13, 1689, is in the Providence, R. I. 
records. He made liberal bequests to " cousins John Parker and 
Hester his wife," and to several of their children of " West New 
Jersey." 

(1.) THOMAS 1 MAN (was he son of the foregoing James ?) was 
a landholder in Rehoboth, Mass., in 1676, and later. Rachel, daughter 
of Jonathan Bliss, of Rehoboth, was his first wife. She was buried 
there with her child in June, 1676. He married second, "9th of 
April, 1678," Mary Wheaton, who survived her husband, and married 
a Darling. He (Thomas) was probably one of Capt. Michael 
Pierce's guides in the famous Indian fight in that town. Bliss, in 
his "History of Rehoboth," says: "Thomas Man on the 27th 
month, 1676, has just returned with a sore wound."* He removed to 
Providence, R. L, in 1692-3, and died there July 18, 1694, leaving a 
will. The following children, except the youngest, were born at 
Rehoboth, Mass. : 

i. Rachel 2 (Richard?), b. April 15, 1679. 

ii. Mary, 2 b. Jan. 11, 1680-1; ru. 1708, Ebenezer Sprague. 

iii. Bethia, 3 b. March 2, 1682-3; d. 1712; m. Jonathan Sprague. 

2. iv. Thomas, 2 b. Jan. 24, 1684; d. in Smithfield, R. I. 



* Deane gives the credit of this " sore wound " to Thomas Man, of Scituate ; but 
the Ed. thinks Deane was in error.

husband's will were " negligent in their attention to it." This com- 
plaint was presented the " 27th of the 11th mo. 1650," showing that 
his death occurred at an earlier date. They had two children, viz. :

(OF SCITUATE, MASS.) 

AND HIS DESCENDANTS, 

WITH AN INDEX. 



(preceded by a brief sketch of the town 
in its early history.) 



COVERING A PERIOD OF TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY YEARS. 

1644— 1884. 



EARLY SCITUATE AND ITS INHABITANTS. 



This historic old town, one of the first settled in Plymouth Coun- 
ty, is situated on the coast about mid-way between Boston and 
Plymouth. The earliest notice of settlement on record bears date 
1628; it is certain, however, that the Pilgrims of Plymouth ex- 
plored the shores somewhat earlier, and took notice of this favorable 
place for a settlement. History affirms that many of the first settlers 
of this town were "men of education and easy fortune, who left 
homes altogether enviable, save in the single circumstance of abridg- 
ment of religious liberty." The " Men of Kent," as they were called 
(from Kent County, England), settled at and near what is now called 
the Harbor, and on the cliffs bordering on the sea shore. It is said, 
"early as the year 1639, Scituate contained more men of distinction 
and fair fortune than at any period since." Some of them were 
"celebrated in English history for gallantry, loyalty and courtly 
manners." Of these, were : Vassall, Hatherly, Gilson, Cudworth, 
Hinckley, Poster, Tilden, Stedman, Saffin, Annable, Chittenden, Clapp, 
Cobb, Josselyn, Adams, Robinson, Stetson, Hatch, King, Preble, Tur- 
ner, Williams, Sutton, Hoar, Ensign and others. A few years later 
came in the families of Otis, Barstow, Ticknor, Brooks, Briggs, Bar- 
ker, Church, Chandler, Clarke, Collamore, Bryant, Bird, Bourne, 
Allen, dishing, Curtis, Delano, Man, Ewell, Hewett, Holmes, Jacobs, 
Jones, Litchfield, Lincoln, Cowen, Lewis, Little, Lowell, Lombard, 
Fuller, Parker, House, Merritt, Nash, Pierce, Pierpont, Randall, 
Rogers, Stockbridge, Sylvester, Torrey, Jenkins, Hobart, Wade, 
Wanton, Willard, Winslow, Wilson, Woodworth, Young and others. 
Descendants of the above are now found located in nearly every State 
in the Union. The early clergymen who were born in England 
were : Giles Saxton, John Lathrop, Charles Chauncy, Henry Dunster, 
William Witherell and Nicholas Baker. Dunster and Chauncy 



52 MANN MEMORIAL. 

were the first and second presidents of Harvard University. William 
Vassall was the shining literary light, who bitterly opposed Rev. Dr. 
Chauncy, and disrupted the church. Foster, Hoar, Saffin and Barker 
were the first lawyers of the town. John Hoar, the lawyer and 
farmer, removed to Concord, Mass., in 1659 or '60, and his descen- 
dants are well known in the State and Nation. 

The Cushing and Otis families have been very prominent. William 
Gushing, LL.D., one of the first justices of the United States Supreme 
Court, who administered the oath of office to President George 
Washington, lies buried here in his own selected enclosure, and near 
his once famous mansion. Of the long list of persons mentioned in 
this article, Mr. Timothy Hatherly deserves a brief notice. With 
his abundant fortune, he preeminently enhanced the early prosperity 
of Scituate. He first arrived at Plymouth in the ship Ann, 1623, 
and erected a house there, which was destroyed by fire. He went to 
England in 1625, but returned hither in 1632, and settled in Scituate, 
where he came into possession of a grant of land nine mile3 square, 
called " Conihassett Grant." A portion of this land had already 
been taken by " squatters " — the early settlers — but adjustments 
were made, whereby a deed of copartnership was signed in 1646. 
These Conihassett partners (twenty-six in number, see p. 57) ap- 
pointed their clerks, surveyors, committees, agents, etc., and con- 
ducted their affairs with all the efficiency of a corporate town. They 
laid out and maintained roads until 1715, and records which fill a large 
volume were kept of all their transactions in perfect order. Their 
last meeting on record was 1767. Of the two ancient burial grounds, 
where lie buried the venerable fathers, one is barely visible by its 
ancient and weather-beaten head-stones ; the other, where lie the 
ashes of Rev. William Witherell* and others, was long since 
desecrated by ruthless hands, who removed the slabs and ploughed 
the soil. 



* Rev. William Witherell, who antagonized Dr. Chauncy's mode of infant baptism, 
and who baptized Gov. Josiah VVinslow, was born in England in 1600 ; ordained pastor 
at Scituate in 1645, and died in 1684. He administered at Scituate six hundred and 
ei^ht baptisms. Many anecdotes are related of him ; one as follows : Mr. Bryant 
entered the church after services commenced. Mr. Witherell at close of prayer thus 
addressed him : " Neighbor Bryant, it is to your reproach that you have disturbed 
the worship by coming in late, living as you do within a mile of church. Especially 
so, since here is goody Bars tow, who has milked seven cows, made a cheese, and 



EARLY SCITUATE AND ITS INHABITANTS. 53 

This town suffered early by the Narraganset Indians. March 26, 
1676, Oapt. Michael Pierce, of Scituate, with less than eighty whites 
and friendly Indians from the neighboring towns, had a desperate 
encounter with the foe near what is now the town of Rehoboth, Mass. 
He was killed with fifty-two Englishmen of his company. The Indians 
being in great force, then marched towards Scituate, burning houses 
and murdering the inhabitants. Deane informs us, that in their prog- 
ress over " Walnut Tree Hill " they entered Ewell's house, which 
stood at the "turn of the road." Ewell's wife*was alone, save an 
infant grandchild, John Northey, sleeping in the cradle. The house 
being situated beneath a high hill, they had no notice of the approach 
of the savages until they were rushing down the hill towards the 
house. In the moment of alarm she fled towards the garrison, which 
was not more than sixty rods distant, and either through a momen- 
tary forgetfulness or despair forgot the child. She reached the gar- 
rison in safety. The savages entered her house, and stopping only 
to take the bread from the oven (which she was in the act of putting 
in when she was first alarmed), they rushed forward to assault the 
garrison. After they had become closely engaged, Ewell's wife re- 
turned by a circuitous path to learn the fate of the babe, and, to her 
happy surprise, found it quietly sleeping in the cradle as she had 
left it, and carried it safely to the garrison. Shortly after the house 
was burnt. 

The court records abound with curious items. A. D. 1660, " Wil- 
liam Holmes' wife was accused of beinge a witch. Dinah Sylvester, 



walked five miles to the house of God in good season." Mr. Witherell wrote verse 
superior to the poetry of Dunster. In an elegy on the death of his friend, Gov. 
Josiah Win-slow, after extolling highly his many virtues, he suddenly breaks forth 
thus : 

" But why do I burn Tapers in the sun, 
Or midst great cannons, let fly my pot- gun ; 
His worth transcends the weakness of my quill, 
As lofty mounts o'ertop the pismire hill. 
******** 

Had I an hundred eyes like Argus, I 
Would weep them all purblind, or pump them dry. 
I'd rather drink the tears of my old eyen 
For sweet JOSIAH, than quaff muskadine. 
******** 

I Avish that He, who thee succeedeth next, 
May, like to thee, keep close unto the Text. 
Sacred and civil ; He shall have my Vote, 
While I am worth a Tester or Gray Groat."

accuser. Witness sworn said she saw a beare about a stones throw 
from the path, but being examined, and asked what manner of tayle 
the beare had, she said she could not tell, for the head was towards 
her." Probably the bear alleged was William Holmes's wife in that 
shape. 

The physical changes are marked since the first settlement of this 
ancient town. By the constant attrition of the tides and storms the 
cliffs are gradually wasting away. The early records mention the 
" Live Oak Forests." The first ship building of the colony was 
done on the banks of North River, a sluggish stream affected by the 
tide. A noticeable feature of the town at this late day is the little 
colony of colored people — descendants of the slaves, who in early 
times were numerous at this place. This town (which included 
Hanover prior to 1727, and South Scituate up to 1849) has many 
very ancient and historic mansions ; old buildings still standing, 
erected 1636 and later. In another way Scituate has been made 
famous. Here lived the author of the poem, u The Old Oaken 
Bucket." The maternal cottage of Woodworth, the " dairy-house," 
and the " moss-covered bucket " are gone, but still to be seen as of 
yore is 

"The wide-spreading pond, and the mill that stood by it ; 
The bridge, and the rock where the cataract fell." 

The well also remains unchanged, but a flat cover is substituted for 
the curb, and the water is taken into the kitchen by a pump. The 
historic old mill has been in constant service for two hundred and 
forty years, and is now busily at work as in Woodworth's childhood. 




RICHARD MAN 

AND HIS DESCENDANTS; 



RICHARD MAN, of Scituate, Mass., was one of the first bearing 

the name who, probably, with his wife Rebecca — , during the 

reign of King Charles I. of England, emigrated from that country. 
There is no data sufficiently authentic by which to fix the year of his 
arrival here; but it was, no doubt, a few years previous to 164.4. 
The first appearance of his name on record is found with thirty-one 
other persons in the town of Scituate, Mass., as having taken the 
" Oath of fidelity." This act bears date "January 15, 1644." 

Rev. Samuel Deane, in his history of Scituate, published in 1831, 
says: 

" Richard Man [planter] was a youth in Elder Brewster's family, and 
came to Plymouth in the Mayflower, 1620.^ He was one of the Conihassett 
partners in Scituate, 1646. His farm was at Man Hill* [a well known 
place to this day], south of great Musquashcut pond, and north of John 
Hoar's farm. There is no record of his marriage here. His children: 
Nathaniel, born 1646; Thomas, 1650; Richard, 1652; Josiah, 1654. 
Nathaniel lived in Scituate, but left no family. In 1680 he made over his 
estate to his brothers, Richard and Thomas, and took a bond for support. 
This was on account of infirm health. Josiah deceased early, or removed. 
Thomas had children: Josiah, born 1676; Thomas, 1681; Sarah, 1684; 
Mary, 1688; Elizabeth, 1692; Joseph, 1694; Benjamin, 1697. Thomas 
had lands at Rehoboth, and probably deceased there. He was in the Reho- 
both battle with Capt. Pierce, 1676, and was severely wounded. Richard 



* " Man Hill." A beautiful, but gentle rise of land bordering on the sea shore, 
located at the N. E. part of Scituate. Known by this name since 1648. Now covered 
by a few elegant summer residences. The old Man cellar- hole is still visible on the 
west slope of this hill. — Ed.

had children : John, born 1684; Rebecca, 1686; Hannah, 1689; Nathans, 
1693; Richard, 1694; Elizabeth, 1696; Abigail, 1698. Rebecca, widow 
of Richard, Sen., married John Cowen, 1656." 

A historian, and more especially the compiler of a genealogical 
work like the History of Scituate, is not expected to be infallible. 
Deane, though in error in his statement that Richard Man " was a 
youth in Elder Brewster's family," and "came in the Mayflower, 
1G20," was, nevertheless, a good annalist. There was a " youth " in 
the family of Elder Brewster by the name of Richard More, who 
married Christian Hunt, Oct. 20, 1636. Deane probably confounded 
the two names. And his assertion that Thomas Man, of Scituate, 
" was in the Rehoboth battle ; had lands at Rehoboth, and probably 
deceased there," is another error equally obvious. There was a 
Thomas Man of another branch (see p. 29), a resident of Rehoboth, 
who, undoubtedly, was the one who came out of that noted Indian 
fight in 1676 " with a sore wound." — (See Bliss's History of Reho- 
both.) James Savage, LL.D., in his Genealogical Dictionary, claims 
that Deane must have been also mistaken in his assertion that Rich- 
ard Man came in the Mayflower, 1620, and adds : " The person who 
had share with Brewster's lot in the division of cattle, 1627, was 
not Mann but More (v. Davis's Morton, 382), and Bradford gives the 
Mayflower Richard More to be counted with the other heads to Brews- 
ter, six in number," etc. 

Richard Man* (planter) appears next in 1646 with twenty-five 
other persons in the well known " Conihassett grantf" deed from the 
venerable Timothy Hatherly. — (See Old Col. Rec.) 



* Richard Man was one of the twelve men " impannelled and sworne" the 16th of 
November, 1655, "to looke on the body of the daughter of Willam Pakes. 

By the appointment of mee, Timothy Hatherly." 

" Wee find Willam Pakes his well to bee very dangerous, as both in that it lyes 
at the foot of a hill, as alsoe haueing noe fence aboute itt to preserve a child from 
shooting or tumbling in : soe the child falling or tumbling in the water was the cause 
of the death of Thankful Pakes."— (Plymouth Col. Rec, Vol. iii. p. 92.) 

f Within this territory was included a large tract of land which the Colony Court 
had granted to four gentlemen, called " merchant adventurers of London." The fol- 
lowing court order, A.D. 1633, relates to this subject: "That the whole tract of land 
between the brook at Scituate, on the N. W. side, and Conihassett, be left undisposed 
of till we know the resolution of Mr. James Shirley, Mr. John Beauchamp, Mr. Rich- 
ard Andrews and Mr. Timothy Hatherly." In October, 1637, the above tract was 
granted to the above named gentlemen, "extending three miles up into the woods 
from the high water mark in the brook," etc. This grant was purchased by Timothy

1656, 

6 May 

[Bradford, 

Governor.] 



The wife* of Richard Man, deceased, doth give vnto her 
three youngest children, to each of them five pounds: and 
Captaine Cudworth standeth bound to see the same pformed 
out of the estate of the said Richard Man. — (Plymouth Col. 
Rec.) 



* Rebecca Man (widow of Richard Man) married John Cowen " the last of March, 
1656." John Cowen and wife Rebecca lived in Richard Man's house until 1670. — 
(See controversy Plymouth Col. Rec, also on p. 60.) Their children were: Joseph, 
b. 1657; Mary, 1659; John, 1662; Israel, 1664; Rebecca, 1666. Joseph Cowen, b. 
1657, was killed with fourteen others of Scituate in the Indian fight at Rehoboth, 
1676. John Cowen, Sen., was from Scotland. He purchased lands in Conihassett 
(Scituate), north of Sweet Swamp. His house stood where Stephen Litchfield's did 
in 1830. As an evidence of his Scottish spirit I insert the following " Court Record" : 



RICHARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 59 

Nathaniel Man, the Sun of Richard Man, was Borne the 23 of Septem- 
ber, 1646. 

Thomas Man, the Sun of Richard Man, was Borne the 15 of August, 
1650. 

Richard Man, the Sun of Richard Man, was Borne the 5 of ffebuary, 
1652. 

Josiah Man, the Sun of Richard Man, was Borne the 10 of December, 
1654. — (Scituate Rec.) 

The compiler has not traced the family line in England. By ex- 
amining what is printed of English Records on pp. 9 to 17 of this 
work, the reader can judge as well as the author, independent of a 
more extended research, regarding the ancestry of Richard, anterior 
to his settlement in Scituate. Undoubtedly, he married (Rebecca 

) in the mother country, and, probably, had no children there. 

William 5 Mann {Ensign, 4, Ensign, 3 Thomas, 2 Richard 1 ), a person of 
intelligence and remarkable memory, on his death-bed in 1861 re- 
lated to the writer, that his father told him that Richard Man, Sen., 
came from the County of Cornwall,* England, " with " or " had " 
seven sons. One theory in connection with this statement is, that 
Rebecca, the widow of Richard, married John Cowen, 1656, and 
by him had three sons, making " seven sons " in both families, who 
were probably brought up together and cared for under one roof 
(see p. 58). But traditional accounts are so unsatisfactory, the 
writer will refrain from mentioning others. 



1671, Att this Court, John Cowin was indited for speaking contemptable words 

5 June, against the royal dignity of England, in that hee said hee scorned to be in 

Prence, subjection to any English man, and that there was neuer any Kinge in 

Gov r . England that was an English man but one crooked backed Richard, a 

crooked rogue, just like such an one as hee named, vizs. a crooked man 

well known in the town of Scittuate. The case being put vpon tryall the 

jury brought in not guilty, and soe hee was by open proclamation cleared," 

and 

1672-3, Anthony Dodson, of Scittuate, sued John Cowen and Rebecka, his wife, 

4 March, claiming £100 damage, " for vngroundedly saying and reporting this yeare, 

'72, that the said Dodson sayed that John Williams sayed William Rogers 

broke vp his house, by which saying and reporting of John Cowin and his 

wife, the said Dodson is wronged, reproached, and defamed, and soe comes 

to be damnifyed. The jury find for the defendant." 

* In reply to a letter of the author, Rev. Charles Noel Mann, of St. Issey Yicarage, 
Cornwall, Eng., wrote under date " 12 March, 1880," regarding Richard Man, thus : 
" From the Register Books of the Parish — no trace of him exists in any branch of 
our family." 



60 MANN MEMOEIAL. 

Eichard was a farmer, and one of the original land proprietors. 
His foresight, no doubt, led him to select one of the most beautiful 
locations for a residence on the coast. ' His neighbor on the south 
was John Hoar, who early removed to Concord, Mass. On the east 
of him was the sea; north, "Musquascut Pond"; still further north, 
and bordering the "Pond," were the "Farmes," so-called. In an 
attempt to cross this pond in February, 1655, on the "iyce," he was 
drowned (see p. 57). Like most of the earliest settlers, he has no 
monument to mark his grave. It appears that he was a man of some 
note, and much respected in the Colony. Among his descendants 
may be found many in the various professions, trades, etc. A great 
proportion, however, have been and are farmers/ As will be seen, 
the descendants are now scattered from Maine to California. 

EICHARD 1 MAN and wife Rebecca , had the following 

children, born in Scituate, Mass. : 

i. ^Nathaniel, 2 b. Sept. 23, 1646; d. July 20, 1688. No chil- 
dren. 



* 1670, 
5 July. Wheras Nathaniel Man, of Scittuate, formerly sued his father in law, 
John Cowin, att the Court of the celeetmen of Scittuate, for vseing and 
improveing his house and lands without his order, and that Court tearmed it a vexatious 
suite, and find not themselves in a capasitie to issue the difference, althoe the said 
Man sued not vpon title, but for trespass, to the damage of thirty nine shillings, and 
being noe way releived by the judgement of the above said Court, the said Man was 
necsesitated to appeale from the judgment of that Court to his Ma ties Court held heer 
this day. This appeale was not pleaded to. Soe as refered to the jury, but was other- 
wise determined. See Booke of Orders, July Court, Anno 1670. — (Plymouth Col. 
Rec, Vol. vii. p. 160.) 

In 1680 Nathaniel made over his estate to his brothers, Thomas and Richard; and 
Thomas signed a bond for his support. This was on account of infirm health. — 
(Plymouth Prob. Pec.) 

Death of Nathaniel Man, the verdict. 

Scituate, July 21, 1688. 

Doe find that said Nathaniel Man hath formerly been 
troubled with fitts, his falling sickness, and sometimes hereterfore hath been distracted 
or out of his witts. And that on the 19 tu of this instant, July, at evening, at the 
house of his brother Thomas Man, at Conihassett in Scituate aforesaid, greyiously 
distracted or Lunatized & in a raging manner so continued till towards break of the 
day & then ran out of the said house & tore off his clothes &.ran away in the said 
distracted frame, & on the 20 th Instant was founed in the searf of the Sea between 
high water & low water mark amongst a body of Rocks lying against little Pond and 
was dead, that, he Running amongst the said Rocks they being very slippery, did fall 
upon some of them & wounded his head whereof he died. — (Plymouth Prob. Rec.) 

His estate consisted of about 30 acres of upland and meadow, besides cows, swine, 
books, etc., to the am't of £13 3s. Od.

(2) THOMAS 2 MAN 

(Richard 1 ) was born in Scituate, Mass., Aug. 15, 1650. He 

married Sarah , had 

five sons and three daughters, 
all of whom (except Ensign, 
who is mentioned in the will) are recorded in the town of Scituate 
record of births. His name appears in the Old Colony Records, 
deeds, etc., and he was one of a coroner's jury « 26th March, 1677." 
In 1680 he was "propounded as a freeman for the next year if ap- 
proved." / He probably came into possession of that portion of his 
father's estate whereon the buildings stood, prior to 1679. From 
time to time, he added to his lands and estates. There appears 
more than twenty transfers to and from him, in marsh and uplands, 
in the town of Scituate. — (See Plym. Co. Registry.) In one or two 
deeds, he is called a wheelwright. \ The following receipt may be 
found in Old Col. Rec, vol. v. p. 174.

deeded a considerable lot of land to his sons Joseph and Benjamin 
Man. Thomas, Sen., March 6, 1722, con. £75, "for the love and

(Richard*), born in Scituate, Mass., Feb. 5, 1652; married Eliza- 
beth Sutton, born 1662 ; eldest daughter of John Sutton, of Scituate, 
and granddaughter of Elder Nathaniel Tilden.* [The latter a wealthy 
citizen who emigrated from Tenterden, in Kent, England, before 
1628, and settled in Scituate.] Richard was three years old at the 
time of his father's death, and only four when his mother married 
John Cowen.t At eleven years of age he was apprenticed % to Mr. 
Thomas Hinckley [Governor of Plymouth Colony from 1681 to

§ Richard Man deeds to "my well beloved son Nath 1 Man a tract of land granted 
by y e General Assembly of y e Mass. Bay. I being one of the shounders (soldiers) in 
y e former Indian War and especially in y e Narragansette Sortie Fight commonly so

corded. It bears date Nov. 21, 1728.— (Letter of Mrs. C. M. Phelps.) 



64 MANN MEMOEIAL. 

In 1703 he sold his farm in Scituate, to his brother Thomas, and 
about the same time calling himself a " planter," deeded sis and two 
thirds acres of u Connihasset lands " to Gershom Ewell. At Ply- 
mouth Registry Deeds, vol. v. p. 125-6, is a copy of a deed dated 
13th of April, 1703, where John Allyn sells his homestead and 
other lands in Middleboro', Mass., to Richard Man and Benjamin 
Booth, of Scituate. These lands, " by estimation," were more than 
three hundred acres, and described as being " near the Comons as 
ordered by Gov. Prince to Maj. Church." The author has not ob. 
served any subsequent transfer of this estate. Soon after, we find 
Richard Man* and family, residents at Lebanon, Conn., where he 
probably ever after lived, and died. The first conveyance of land 
to him at Lebanon, Conn., was July 6, 1705, by which one hundred 
acres were purchased for <£25. — (Lebanon Rec, vol. i. p. 150.) He 
conveyed land to his son Nathaniel Man, of Hebron, Conn., Feb. 9, 
1725-6, also to his son Richard, Jr., Dec. 7, 1724. Either he or 
son Richard conveyed a farm (situated at the north-east part of 
Lebanon) in 1743 to Eldad Kingsley. The place is now owned by 
John D. Kingsley. " There is upon the old homestead, a building 
now standing, which tradition says was erected about 1695, for a 
Quaker meeting-house. The building is two stories, and is now 
used for -a wagon-house and granary." — (Ext. of a letter of W. G. 
Kingsley, Esq., of Lebanon.) 

The following were the children of Richard Man and wife Eliza- 
beth ; all except Elisha were born at Scituate, Mass. : 

i. John, 3 b. April 7, 1684. He was in Lebanon, Conn., 1719. 
(No doubt but that he removed to New Hampshire or "West- 
ern Massachusetts and had a family.) Nathaniel Man, of 
Hebron, Conn., March 16, 1719, conveys "to my brother 
John, of Lebanon." — (Leb. Rec, vol. iii. p. 179.) 

ii. Rebecca, 3 b. March 22, 1686; m. Isaac Tilden (second wife), 
of Lebanon, June 4, 1716, and had Rebecca, 4, b. March 7,

Martha 4 Oct. 12, 1723; Mercy 4 Aug. 15, 1725; John 4 Jan. 
28, 1729.— (Mudge Gen.) 



* Richard Man and Elizabeth his wife, of Lebanon, Conn., Oct. 17, 1715, sold all 
right, title, interest, claim, and demand, of their interest in a salt marsh in Scituate, 
Mass., " which was sometime Marsh land of Nathan Sutton, deceased, and now in 
possession of Abigail Sutton, one s d part being one third part thereon as set off to s d 
Elizabeth Man, as her part of said portion of Nathan Sutton deceased." — (Plym. lleg. 
Deeds, vol. xiv. p. 53.) Nathan Sutton was a brother of Elizabeth Man. — Ed.

his father April 9, 1713, it being the premises formerly owned by 
his uncle, Richard Man, Jr. In the deeds of record he is called a 
" cordwainer." His brother, Ensign Man, owned the adjoining farm

(Thomas' Richard 1 ), born at Scituate 7 Mass., Dec. 27, 1694; m. 

Mary . His father deeded hini a portion of his estate on 

" Man Hill " Feb. 24, 1719. He probably lived there until June 17, 
1732, at which time he sold this estate to Jeremiah Pierce, and re- 
moved to Boston, Mass. Nov. 15, 1734, con. £300, Joseph Man 
[of Boston], is deeded by Gideon Thayer, of Braintree, Mass., a 
farm of " about eighty acres, more or less," situated at the " South 
Precinct " in Braintree. This part of Braintree was incorporated 
March 9, 1793, and called Randolph. In 1742, he calling himself of 
Hanover, Mass., transfers a portion of the above estate to his broth- 
er, Benjamin Man, of Hanover. He died in Braintree (now Ran- 
dolph) about 1747. This farm is still in the family of the sixth and 
seventh generation from Richard. 1 A very old house is still standing 
on this estate. It is situated about two miles north of the village of

(Thomas, 9 Richard 1 ) was born in Scituate, Mass., about the year 
1699. He seems to have been the youngest of the family. This 
christian name (Ensign) now singularly appears for the first time in 
any branch bearing the name. [Was his mother of the Scituate 
Ensign family ?]' His birth is not on the Scituate town records with 
the other children ; but he is mentioned in his father's will (see p. 
62). His name appears in real estate transfers in Scituate, from 
1722 to 1759, and he is called " housewright " in the deeds. " 6 th of 
March, 1722," his father (Thomas Man) deeded him " one half moiety 
part " of his farm on " Man Hill " ; and on the 29th of March, 1750, 
he sold this farm and a salt marsh for <£1350, in "Bills of cred- 
dit of the province of the old Tennor " to Benjamin House. Soon 
after he removed to Boston, and owned a house near the corner of 
Cambridge and Chambers Streets. He was married by Eev. Nathaniel 
Eells, of Scituate, July 19, 1738, to "widow Tabitha Vinal, late of 
Scituate." He and his wife died within seven weeks of each other, 
with fever, about 1762. They had the following children, born, 
probably, on " Man Hill," in Scituate : 

16. i. Ensign, 4 b. July 15, 1740; Harvard Coll. 1764. 

ii. Elijah, 4 b. Sept. 2, 1742 ; m. Mary 4 Man (his cousin), of 
Hanover, Mass. ; she was the daughter of Benjamin 3 Man,

and was born Aug. 13, 1737. His brother, Ensign, deeded 
him about sixty-eigbt acres of land with buildings, at north 
part of Petersham, Mass., March 2, 1771, bounded by es- 
tates of Elisha Ward, Daniel Duncan, John and James Stock- 
well. The father of the author remembers both him and his 
wife. He was a great reader, and became nearly blind and 
dependent before his decease, which occurred April 27, 1823. 
His widow died April 7, 1825, being very aged. They were 
buried at Petersham, in the " North Burial Ground." She 
was a kind hearted woman. They had one son only, viz. : 
Joseph, 5 who, at one time, owned a small farm in the town of 
Hanover. He was unmarried, and died there June 26, 1851, 
aged 80 (see page 67). 
iii. Priscilla, 4 b. Dec. 9, 1746; died (unmarried) in Scituate, 
July 29, 1831, aged 84 . 

Priscilla Mann* was one of the most strongly marked characters of the 
vicinity in which she lived. For strength of mind, moral worth and intel- 
lectual ability, probably she was not surpassed by any of her sex bearing 
the family name ; indeed, as much could be said of her brother Ensign, wbom 
she revered and loved. Whether these mental traits were inherited from 
the father or mother, or from both, is hard to determine. From all accounts 
at hand, we judge their parents were of quiet mien, intelligent and of high 
moral character. Priscilla was a paragon of excellence in her penmanship ; 
some of her letters now in existence abound with good advice to those she 
addressed. In a letter to her niece bearing her name, dated at Hanover, 
Mass., Nov. 26, 1813, she thus briefly gives a little sketch of herself: 
" Tenderly watched under the eye of a kind mother for sixteen years, I was 
in seven weeks & one day bereft of both my parents, & ushered into the 
world a perfect stranger to every thing but what I had gain'd from books, 
for I was always at home; having no sister I had but little inclination to 
roam abroad, and being in town " (probably Boston) " my acquaintance 
was small. When I came into the country I had everything to learn & no 
instructor, but Nature, theory, & your father " (Ensign Man). " A constant 
correspondence with him was of use to me. He was my monitor. He bid me 
beware of the intrigues of the world, and cautiously to retain my own 
secrets, which I found of infinite use to me, being well assured, from what 
I have since seen, that by communication we put wings to our words which 
we can never recall." On the subject of matrimony in the same letter, she 
adds : " It is cruel to damp the ardour of youth ; I have been young & hope 
Pam not so very an old maid, as to think a girl of twenty three can be in- 
fluenced by the same feelings of a woman almost seventy. I ever had a 
niceness in my choice, and could as soon have ceased to live, as to have 
married a man in whose character or conduct I discovered material defects. 
I early resolved upon a single life. My occupation gave me an unwish'd 
for fore-knowledge of the married world. But I love married folks as well 



* Priscilla Mann wrote her name with a double "n." Her brother, Ensign, with 
a single " n " up to 1795 ; after that with a double " n." — En.

as single ones, and I never had any reason to think they shun'd my com- 
pany. Thus much for my own excuse for being single. But I recommend 
it to no one further than their own choice. But I would advise all girls 
who marry, to look for partners of steady habits, good tempers, prudence, 
& a sense of the moral obligations of religion." 

In a letter to her brother, Ensign Mann, of Petersham, dated 
June 25, 1814, is extracted the following: 

" Your British friends have landed at Scituate Harbour, burnt & carried 
off the Vessels. We have frequent alarm. But your Good Governor * 
can't spare any Cannon for fortifying, so the artillery & soldiery turn out 
when call'd for. If the Pious old gentleman dont act a little more like a 
man his Tory friends will get mad at him. One of the red hot Tories at 
the Harbour was the greatest sufferer. His loss was estimated at 5000 
Dollars, & we find they flinch when property is touched just like other 
folks. We are in a queer state enough, a Generalissimo at Northampton: 
so good, so wise & so prudent, so Merciful. What a happy People, to be 
so blest with such a Head ! I have seen America in one war when Our 
Laws were abolish'd by British tyranny. But we had men who knew how 
to govern themselves ; and then indignantly look'd down on the obsequi- 
ous addressor of Britons Governor Gage! " etc. "I know how little you 
will relish this letter. But in brotherly kindness you will pass it over since 
my scolding will do neither good nor hurt to your favourites," etc. 

And in another letter to her brother Ensign, dated Feb. 25, 
1820, after commenting upon the imaginary ill conduct of his long 
lost son William, she closes the letter as follows : 

" Necessity only will keep a vicious man from pursuing forbidden paths, 
until he is convinced that sin is misery, and virtue alone makes happiness. 
All rational, innocent indulgences are allowed us by the Author of our be- 
ing, nothing forbidden but what is hurtful in the moral world. How 
strange that our reason is so obscured by our passions ! that experience 
can't convince us before we have run into irretrievable ruin. Sin, ten 
thousand times repeated, leaves its sting behind, when virtue always af- 
fords peace and pleasure, such as no misfortune can rob us of. I am fully 
convinced for myself that nothing can produce a sincere change in us but 
Supreme Love to God, viewing Him according to our highest conception of 
perfection as our father and friend, and the bestower of every blessing which 
our natures require; And that all sin is opposite to His character and na- 
ture, and the source of all temporal inquietude and misery, while we travel 
the journey of life. Thus convinced we shall hate vice for its deformity, 
and opposition to the Divine Character, and from love to Him shun and 
kbhor it, which in my mind is the only true repentance. Not merely 
fearing to sin because we think we shall be personally punished for our 
misdeeds and would gladly sin if we were sure we could escape punish-

The late president of Brown University, Alexis Caswell, D.D., in 
his memorial address on the life of Hon. John Barstow, in 1864, 
thus refers to his old school teacher at Hanover: 

" His first preceptress was Miss Priscilla Mann, who taught the town 
school at ' Broad Oak,' and who, as another pupil of hers remarks, ' for 
more than half a century had been distinguished in that capacity.' He had 
been heard to refer to her with great respect, except that she once punished 
him without just cause." 

A correspondent writes: " I have often heard my dear mother speak of 
Aunt Priscilla Mann. She commenced teaching at sixteen, and continued 
fifty years in Boston, Scituate, Hanover, and vicinity. She used sportively 
to remark, that ' all she knew about cooking was to spread her own bread 
and butter.' I once possessed an original poem on ' Suicide,' from her 
able pen, but unfortunately lost it." 

From a daughter of Peres Jacobs, born 1798: ''She, Miss Mann, 
boarded in my father's family when I was married, sixty-two years ago. 
She was a very fine writer, was capable of writing deeds and all kinds of 
contracts and conveyances, a woman beloved and respected by all. She 
was rather tall, very fleshy, well-proportioned and good looking; could con- 
verse on any subject, religious, political, or the topics of the day. She was 
a remarkable woman of her time, likewise she was a moderate snuff-taker." 
—(Ext. letter of Mrs. D. R. Wade.) 

The following extract of a letter, is from a daughter of the late 
able divine, Father Hosea Ballou, and dated Norwich, Conn., April 
17, 1881: 

"It is a pleasure for me to speak of the life of the distinguished individ- 
ual who was the subject of your inquiry, my beloved and honored friend, 



RICHAKD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 71 

Ma'am Mann. Her personal appearance was unusually attractive ; she was 
tall and proportionally large, dignified in her demeanor, and moderate in 
all her movements; her speech was slow, her enunciation perfect. She 
commanding great attention, no one would think of interrupting her while 
she was speaking. She was doubtless a great reader, but too courteous to 
confine herself to books during the few hours that we enjoyed her society 
in the family circle ; at such times she was knitting continually, in which 
employment she took great satisfaction. It seems very singular that you 
should have been informed that Miss Priscilla Mann ever wrote a poem. 
It may be possible, but I distinctly recollect hearing her make a remark 
like this, ' I never possessed a talent for rhyming, bat one day being with 
a friend with whom I was familiar, I enquired: 

If you and I should chance to die 
Would any mortals think to cry ? 

My friend immediately replied 

I do suppose for the sake of our clothes 
They would cry enough to wet their nose. 

There was so much more wit in my friend's impromptu expression than in 
my question, that I never made another attempt of the kind.' 

Ma'am Mann possesed a spirit of remarkable serenity, her smile was 
rich and rare. I never knew her to descend into a broad laugh, although 
in everything that was comical she saw the point at once. She said in my 
presence that she taught forty-nine years, seven months, and three days. 
Being fond of argument could carry her part well in a controversy and 
yield with grace when her opponent got the better of her. I never doubted 
her being a thorough Universalist ; she attended the church of that denomi- 
nation regularly in Scituate, where Dr. Benjamin Whittemore was pastor. 
I was a mere child when I left Boston and went to board in the family of 
Ichabod R. Jacobs. I well remember what I thought of the old lady 
boarder, how noble, how stately she appeared; her black eyes were so 
penetrating I almost feared to encounter them ; when she addressed me I 
felt sure of making a silly answer, I was under so much restraint; she 
seemed so wise and so far beyond my reach. After the lapse of more than 
half a century, I still consider Miss Priscilla Mann one of the noblest wo- 
men I ever met. She had few equals, no superiors." — (Mrs.) M. B. 
Whittemore. 

The last few years of her life, she boarded in the family of Ichabod R. 
Jacobs, in Scituate (now South Scituate), the old family mansion being only 
a few rods east of the town of Hanover line, and near the Universalist 
church, in the little village of Assinippi, called " Snappet for fun " in one 
of Miss Mann's letters. She died there July 29, 1831, and was buried in 
the Jacobs burial ground in that village. The elderly persons in that 
vicinity remembering their old school teacher, speak highly of her many 
virtues and strength of character. No doubt her goodly influence still pre- 
vails in that community. She left a will written by herself, which bears 
date, December 26, 1820.

(8) NATHANIEL 3 MAN 

(Richard, 2 Richard 1 ), born in Scituate, Mass., Oct. 27, 1693. His

family to Lebanon, Conn., where he purchased a farm of one hun- 
dred acres July 6, 1705. A considerable lot of land was deeded to 
Nathaniel Man, of Lebanon, " 4 10 acre lots on Ten Mile River called 
plow plain fields." Date of this deed was May 29, 1713. —

Mass., about 1734, where his father, (l/^f/i^J^^^ 4 *— 

Joseph (called of Boston) purchased a farm of G-ideon Thayer, con 
sisting of " about Eighty acres more or less." This " Precinct " 
was incorporated and named Randolph, March 9, 1793. Lieut. Seth 
Man (as he was called), was a farmer and extensive land proprietor, 
and resided on the farm that formerly belonged to his father, situ- 
ated at the "West Corner," so called by the inhabitants of the town, 
where his descendants still live. The ancient dwelling-house is still 
standing on the place, and is in very good repair. He had in suc- 
cession three wives, who bore him eighteen children ; two by the first,

(16) ENSIGN 4 MAN 

(Ensign, 3 Thomas, 2 Richard 1 ) was born at "Man Hill," in Scitu- 
ate, Mass., July 15, 1740. He was the eldest child of Ensign Man, 
Sr v by wife (widow) Tabitha _ 

Vinal. His father sold his ^K> ' yV 

real estate and homestead on ^ / 'P2^/^^ / l c^^egs^Z-^ 
"Man Hill," in 1750, and / ~~) 

soon after removed to Boston. 

It is said the subject of this sketch was prepared for college by 



RICHARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 81 

the clergyman of the town. Be that as it may, he was graduated 
from Harvard University in 1764, the year the college hall and li- 
brary were destroyed by fire.* At this time Man had a chamber in 
the Hall, where he had accumulated many books for the purpose of 
preparing himself to be a tutor. The fire taking all, he resolved to 
teach, and we next find him the same year (1764), at Lancaster, 
Mass., a school teacher.f He taught three years in that town, and 
about 1767 went to Petersham,:]: Mass., to pursue the same employ- 
ment. 

It is said he had " warmly espoused the cause of liberty," and no 
doubt the many friends of the government party § in Petersham 
were ready to throw every obstacle in his path. Rev. Aaron Whit- 
ney, one of the committee, not liking his political sentiments, refused 
to take any part in his qualification as a teacher. " But in spite of 
all antipathies and objections," says Rev. Mr. Willson, " Mr. Man at 
length commenced his labors." He was the leader of the party in 
town who styled themselves " Sons of Liberty," || and met on the 2Uth 
of Sept. 1768, and dedicated a "thrifty young elm" to the goddess 
of liberty. Willson says, " the training which Mr. Man had had in 
letters, made him a valuable acquisition to the Whigs, who had fre- 
quent occasion, no doubt, to avail themselves of his services in draw- 
ing up their papers, and putting their resolutions in form." At this 
time party spirit " ran high " at Petersham. 

In August, 1770, Capt. Thomas Beaman (who acted as a guide to 
the British troops at Lexington and Concord, and afterwards fled,

Harvard University. 

t See Worcester Magazine, vol. ii. p. 238. (Among the teachers were Gen. War- 
ren of Revolutionary fame, President Willard, and others.) 

X For a historical sketch of Petersham, and more about Ensign Man, see the ably 
written pamphlet of Rev. Edmund B. Willson, entitled " An Address in Commemo- 
ration of the One Hundredth Anniversary" of the incorporation of that town; 
printed 1855. 

§ Petersham at this time was one of the most prominent towns in the state, and 
many of its first citizens were of the government party, or " Tories." (See Willson's 
Address.) This romantic hill town of late years, through the influence of James W. 
Brooks, Esq., Prof. John Fiske, and others, has become a quiet but noted summer 
resort.

Evening Post, of March 13, 1769, Mass. Hist. Soc. The "thrifty young elm" is said 
to be one of the three large trees now standing on the east line of the main road, and 
just north of the highly cultivated estate of James W. Brooks, Esq.

Ms estate confiscated, etc.) " padlocked " the " obnoxious school- 
master " out of the schoolhouse. Mr. Sylvanus How and Man 
"without ceremony broke it open." This action led to a lengthy 
and bitter law suit, in which the defendants, How and Man, em- 
ployed as counsel Josiah Quincy, Jr. Soon after " Mr. Man," says 
Mr. Willson, " had been wounded and taken captive by a subtler 
warrior, and a hero of more conquests than ever went clad in armor 
of metal. The minister could not convert him from his idol-worship 
at the shrine of liberty, nor all the armies of the royal George sub- 
due or bind his spirit ; but the minister had a gentle daughter, the 
glance of whose eye smote his shield through and through, cleft his 
helmet in twain, and left him defenceless. At the feet of Miss 
Alice Whitney he had by this time surrendered at discretion." 

He married, August 19, 1773, Alice (born in Petersham, Septem- 
ber 23, 1748), eldest daughter of Rev. Aaron Whitney,* the first 
minister at Petersham. Mr. Man purchased a farm at the north

that lived with his son Thomas, where he died December 21, 1829, 
in his ninetieth year. His wife died September 20, 1806. Besides 
teaching, he prepared young men for.college, and was called "Master 
Man," a sobriquet that he is still known by. He was of vigorous 
frame, a great reader, and possessed remarkable memory. He had 
the Bible, English poets, and many other works almost at his 
" tongue's end," though he had a slight impediment in his speech. 
His religious views are best expressed in a letter of his to his sister 
Priscilla, dated at Petersham, June 4, 1825, then in his eighty-fifth 
year. An extract of which is : 

" My dear sister, I received yours of May 2d, which to my great joy in- 
formed me you was alive and well, which dissipated my fears, and gave 
me great happiness. * * * I feel old age very sensibly creeping upon 
me. I am very lame, but not so but that I crawl about like an old tortoise. 
I strive to bear old age well as I can. * * * With you, I have no 
doubt our vices are punished in this Life. It looks most reasonable, and 
most suitable to the character of an all-wise and all-merciful God to punish 
our sins here ; than ten thousand years hereafter. * # * There is a 
book lately published, entitled an ' Inquiry,' by Walter Balfour. I was 
extremely pleased with reading of it. I read forty years ago Dr. Chaun- 
cey's c Salvation of all Men,' and expected it would have been answered 
by some pious Divine ; but I never heard it was. But this, I expect, will 
have the Thunders of the Vatican levelled against it, and the author of it 
doom'd to everlasting punishment in hell fire! * * * I have often 
wondered why different sentiments in religion and even in politics should 
create ill feelings in the hearts of men towards each other, but so it is, as 
Mr. Pope has well expressed it : 

' What shocks one part, will edify the rest, 
Nor with one system can [we] all be bless' d, 
The very best will variously incline, 
And what rewards your virtue punish mine.' 

But how any man can be edified or pleased with the doctrine : ' It is the 
greatest happiness of the saints in Heaven to look down into hell, and see 
their friends and relations tormented in flames,' I am unable to conceive. 
I will say with Mr. Balfour, ' The good Lord deliver me from such a 
Heaven.' "

He never married. At the age of about 24, he left home 
and was not heard from for twelve years ; during this time he 
travelled every state in the Union, peddling combs, etc. On 
his return he lived with his brother Samuel, and never after 
went a mile from the house up to the day of his death. He 
was a man of large size, of good understanding, well read, 
and of remarkable memory. He directed the family to bury 
him in a plain wooden box (without a funeral) in the pas- 
ture, which plan was carried out. The characteristic oddi- 
ties of the family were more apparent in the life of this Wil- 
liam ; yet he was a man of honor and strictest integrity.

(17) JOSEPH 4 MAN V 

(Nathaniel, 3 Richard, 2 Richard, 1 ) was the eldest child of Nathan- 
iel Man, by wife Mary (Root), of Hebron, Conn. He was born, ac- 
cording to the town of Hebron records, April 5, 1713; whether he 
first saw the light at Hebron, or Lebanon, Conn., is uncertain. His 
father (Nathaniel) deeded lands, May 29, 1713, calling himself of 
Lebanon, but soon after resided and owned land at Hebron. Jo- 
seph Man married first, Mercy , who died April 5, 1738. He 

married second, Hannah Gilbert, Nov. 27, 1740, who died Aug. 15, 
1777. He probably died in Hebron, 1798 or '9. A granddaugh- 
ter says, " he was a farmer and miller in Hebron." He had four- 
teen children, two by the first wife, and twelve by the second, all of 
whom were born at Hebron, viz. :

(18) JOHN 4 MAN 

{Nathaniel, 2 Richard, 2 Richard 1 ), fourth son of Nathaniel, of He- 
bron, Conn., by wife Mary (Root), was born in that town, Nov. 20, 
1720, and died June 
4, 1806. A repre- 
sentative of the family, 
Mrs. C. M. Phelps, 
writes : " The Mann 
farm in Hebron contains about 250 acres; the present house was 
built in 1782 by Andrew Mann (b. 1755). It is a large house, in 
good repair. The place was never sold after Nathaniel Man bought 
it, until my father died." From a letter of his written in 1791, di- 
rected to his brother-in-law, Rev. Samuel Peters, D.D., LL.D.,* then 

* Samuel Andrews Peters, D.D., LL.D., born at Hebron, Conn., 1735; died 1826; 
grad. Yale Coll. 1757. In 1758 he visited Europe, returned to Conn, in 1759, and 
became a clergyman of the Episcopal church and had charge of the churches at Hart- 
ford and Hebron. His toryism was so pronounced that he was obliged to take flight 
to England, where in 1781 he published a "History of Connecticut," setting forth a 
code of " blue laws " which was somewhat untruthful. He published in New York, 
in 1807, a History of Rev. Hugh Peters, his great-uncle; and a History of Hebron. 
He visited the Falls of St. Anthony in 1817, and took up a claim there of large extent 
of land. Trumbull called him " Parson Peter," in " MTingal." He was remunerated 
by the Government for losses during the Revolutionary war. 

The author was kindly loaned a very interesting letter of his, dated " London, Oct. 
24, 1786," and addressed to 'John and Dr. Nath 1 Man, of Hebron. An extract of 
which is : "I have appointed you (John 4 Man) & your Son Nathaniel jointly & sev- 
erally to be my Attorney & Attorneys not believing that the State of Connecticut is 
now graced with two other men of equal virtue & honor," etc.

in London, one would judge him to have been of good business talent 
and education. He married first, Jan. 1, 1740-1, Margaret Peters 
(b. Aug. 1724), of Hebron, "aunt of Gov. Peters, of Hebron." She 
died June 2, 1789. He married second, about 1790, Hannah, widow 
of Samuel Kellogg, of Marlborough. He had the following children, 
born at Hebron, by his first wife. (Hebron records.)

try, in. Miss Owen, of Hebron, May 6, 1787. For a short 
time he imported drugs, medicines, etc., from England. He

on the farm at the ^^s<^^^^@X/^^^^^^^ 



north part of the yf /f /J 

town, July 14, 1778. 

It is said he was a young man of great promise, energetic in pur- 
pose, kind-hearted, and of vigorous frame, but afflicted from youth 
with what was called " bilious colic," and died in a severe attack of 
that disease May 11, 1810, with the injunction on his lips, "take 
good care of my son William," then an infant of nine and a half 
months. He was buried near his mother, in the yard at the centre 
of the town, in the north part of the Rev. Aaron Whitney's burial 
lot. He owned the homestead farm, in company with his brother 
Thomas, it having been deeded them by their father April 16, 1806. 
In addition to this, he and Thomas had purchased an estate and mill 
privilege adjacent, the old growth pine timber of which (since sold) 
proved to be one of the most valuable lots in the county. In the 
division of this property after Ensign's decease, the widow made 
choice of the homestead estate (she not realizing, at the time, the 
prospective value of the timber), while Thomas reluctantly accepted

the timber lot and mill property as his share. The original farm is 
owned by the descendants, having been in the family more than a 
hundred years. Ensign, Jr., married about 1808, Lydia (born about 
1782), daughter of George and Sarah (Norcross) Filmore,* of Shrews- 
bury, Mass., and by her had two children, born on the Thomas Mann 
farm (prospectively Ensign, Jr's.), in Petersham. The widow mar-

of the farm, formerly their father's, and a large tract of timber land, 
with mill privilege adjacent. After the decease of Ensign, Jr., in 
1810, by adjustment, Thomas came in possession of the last men- 
tioned estate, settled upon these lands, took his father (whose wife 
had deceased in 1806) to support, and by the rapid growth of the 
pine forests accumulated a handsome property. He was of slender 
frame, good height, a man of strict integrity, moderate in movement, 
and had a well balanced mind. (The editor of this work lived in 
this family during the summer of 1848.) He died suddenly at

Joel Mann's pamphlet, printed about 1873. In dealing with the earlier families, Rev.

KICHAKD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 12V 

(60) SETH 6 MANN, Esq. 

(Seth, 5 Seth* Joseph, 3 Thomas, 2 Richard 1 ) was born in what is 
now Randolph, Mass., April 4, 1781, and at an early age removed 
with all his father's family to ^ 

Braintree, Yt. At about the — ~^\^^^y^^^k^2<>r^a^r 

age of twenty-one years he re- 
turned to Massachusetts, and thereafter resided permanently in his 
native town. A man of good judgment, energetic and enterprising. 
He was early and all his lifetime engaged in widely extended busi- 
ness in team-work, transportation, as farmer, road contractor, mer- 
chant and manufacturer. He was among the first to engage in the 
manufacture of boots and shoes in Randolph (the boot and shoe 
town), selling in Boston, later extending his trade through all the 
cape towns and to all sections of the United States, his goods being 
known as a standard article. At his death he had a place of business 
in Peoria, 111., distributing there his manufactured goods in connection 
with trade in general merchandise. During the war of 1812 he was 
much employed in providing transportation by land, as far north as 
Bennington, Yt., and south as far as Richmond, Ya., by officers of 
the United States government, in supplying the army, and also in 
transportation for the public in general, having at one time an office 
in the then town of Boston. 

He was much in public life, being for many years a justice of the 
peace, for twelve years one of the selectmen of the town, and rep- 
resentative in the general court of the Commonwealth in the years 
1823-'24,-'26-'27,-'28,-'29,-'31. Director in the Randolph Bank 
from its organization, and county commissioner of Norfolk County 
from the year 1835 until his death, Oct. 23, 1843. 

A Baptist in religious sentiment, he was liberal in his views, ex- 
emplary in character, ever anxious for the well-being of all, benev- 
olent, and every object of charity found in him a cheerful giver. 
To the poor he gave, and also assisted them by furnishing either the 
means or the opportunity of aiding themselves, and more than once, 
in times of greatest pressure, extended his business for their benefit. 
Never of doubtful credit, or compelled to succumb to financial diffi- 
culties, he left a fair estate. Many yet live to remember and speak 
of his kindness, probity and usefulness as a citizen.

years subsequently he speculated in real estate and cattle, but the 
profits resulting therefrom largely vanished in supplying the many 
wants incident to a large family. He has owned about a dozen 
farms within a radius of five miles. About the year 1867, he pur- 
chased the Capt. Joel Brooks homestead estate in Petersham, of his 
son Horace Mann (who had previously bought it and cleared off the 
timber), where he has ever since resided. He is called a man of 
sound judgment, and enjoys the full confidence of his neighbors. A 
Jeffersonian in politics, and so are his sons, and firm believers in 
the sovereignty of the States. Of his children, the eldest was born in 
New Salem, the second in Barre, the others in Petersham.

(91) THOMAS MARSHALL 6 MANN 

(Tliomas? Ensign, 4, Ensign? Thomas, 2 Richard 1 ) was born in 
Petersham, Mass., June 30, 1821, and died in Louisiana, Oct. 20, 
1873. Mr. Mann probably had early instruction from his aged and 
learned grandfather, "Master Ensign Man" (as he was called), who 
lived in his father's family the last eighteen years of his life. This 
no doubt had an influence in shaping the future course of this young 
man. Be this as it may, we find him early an apt student among 
the many such at the locally well-known " Bennet Hill "* district 
school in Petersham. Later he taught this school, attended New 
Salem Academy, and was in Amherst College from 1846 to 1849, 
where he went to prepare himself to be a Universalist minister, but 
on account of ill health, after being there three years, went South 
to teach school, and finally settled at Vista Ridge, La., married M. 
E. Ferguson, about 1849, a wealthy planter's daughter (it is said), 
who died 1 860. He settled on a plantation at that place and had many 
slaves before the war. His time was occupied mostly in teaching 
school and in " preaching the gospel." They had children born there 
as follows : 

i. Thomas Walter, 7 b. Sept. 20, 1850; m. first, Sept. 27, 

1871, Jennie C. Shage (divorced 1872) ; m. second, 
March 8, 1873, Gilley Yancy Davis, b. Sept. 22, 1855. 
He owns a farm and resides at Floyd, Carroll Co., La.

there in the early history of the town. The road was discontinued about thirty- five 
years since, and the school-house taken down a few years later. In the remembrance 
of the author, the pupils of this school, for many years under the instruction of a 
superior teacher, Miss Eunice Sanderson (now Mrs. John Holman), were considered 
above the average in point of scholarship and literary attainment. — Ed.

(92) SAMUEL 6 MANN 

(Samuel, 5 Ensign* Ensign* Thomas, 2 Richard 1 ), the only surviv- 
ing son of Samuel Mann, Sr., of Petersham, Mass., was born in that 
town October 21, 1832, and married Ms cousin Maria Antoinette 
Luce, July 3, 1854. He resides in the southerly part of Athol, 
within a few rods of Petersham town line and near his father's old 
homestead. The author of this work was a school-mate of his at 
the " Bennet Hill " district school. He was considered the intel- 
lectual genius of the neighborhood, and his services were not unfre- 
quently in demand when difficult problems were perplexing to the 
student. 

Sanford B. Cook, Esq., the present town clerk of Petersham, 
another school-mate and who has been associated with Mr. Mann in 
teaching, writes concerning him thus : 

" Samuel Mann, Jr., is strongly developed physically, and in youth 
was quite an athlete. He has a mind of large calibre, and is al- 
most constantly occupied in original thought. In childhood an apt 
scholar ; in youth and mature years he delighted in the study of 
mathematics and the natural sciences, and became a proficient scholar 
therein. He was educated in the public schools of his own town, 
and in New Salem and Wilbraham Academies ; has taught several 
terms in the public schools of Petersham, Athol, and Barre, with 
good success ; was associate teacher in Farmer's Hall Academy at 
Goshen, N. Y., for about six months in 1866, where he did good 
work, having charge of the mathematical and scientific departments. 



RICHARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 145 

About 1856, he spent a season employed in the government survey- 
on the frontier in the northwest, and here, from his superior mathe- 
matical ability, he was assigned the nice and critical work of ' me- 
andering ' the small lakes which abound in that country. In later 
years he has done much land surveying in the vicinity of his home. 
He has a great taste for drawing ; though without special culture in 
this direction, he has nevertheless used his pencil to good advantage, 
having completed a large number of beautiful pictures, many of 
which are considered very valuable and would reflect credit upon 
the most accomplished artists. Since he was forty years old, his 
health has been considerably impaired, and in consequence he has 
only engaged in the lighter kind of work. He is a man of integrity, 
kind-hearted, and generous almost to a fault."

(107) Judge BENNING 6 MANN 

(John,* John, 4 Nathaniel, 3 Richard? Richard 1 ) was born in Orford, 
N. H., Nov. 25, 1781. But little is known of his early life. With 
his two brothers, Cyrus and Joel, he preferred a professional course, 
and was educated at Dartmouth. He married his cousin, Phebe 
Mann (see p. Ill), of Hebron, Conn., Dec. 25, 1806, and settled in 
Stafford, where he engaged in the practice of law. Here he re- 
mained some sixteen years, and here his children were born. It 
was during his residence here that he was Judge of Tolland County 
Court. About the winter of 1822, with his cousin Nathaniel Mann 
and Dr. Joseph Sibley, he engaged in some new business under- 
taking, and removed to Sidney, Delaware County, N. Y., where he 
remained three years. From this place he again removed to Hart- 
ford, Conn., where he passed the remainder of his life. Here he 
resumed the practice of his profession. 

Without his solicitation and entirely unknown to himself, his 
friends procured his appointment as United States Marshal for Con- 
necticut, under Polk, which office he filled to the satisfaction of all. 
He could have retained the position during the next term, but re- 
fused it. He also served with credit as Senator in the Legislature of 
the State. Afterward he was appointed Justice of the Police Court 
of Hartford, a position which he held for thirty years, when his term 
expired by law, he having reached the age of seventy. After that time 



158 MANN MEMORIAL. 

he was Grand Juror and Clerk of the Police Court for nearly eleven 
years, which position he held at his death. He died Jan. 31, 1863, 
at his residence on Chapel Street, after an illness of one week. He 
was a man of strong common sense, and possessed a keen discern- 
ment of right and wrong, which led him to decide readily upon cases 
brought before him, and made him a terror to evil doers. Strict in- 
tegrity and modesty were marked characteristics with him. He 
never sought any of the public honors held by him, but when they 
were thrust upon him he executed his trust with fidelity to all. 

At the announcement of his death the officers of the police force 
and the newspaper reporters met in the court room, which had been 
draped in mourning, and after appropriate remarks by a number of 
gentlemen, resolutions of respect were offered and adopted. Reso- 
lutions of like tenor were passed by the Putnam Phalanx and the 
Masonic bodies of which he was a member. The funeral services 
were held in Christ Church, of which he was a member. The church 
and adjacent streets were filled with people, and a long procession 
followed the remains to the cemetery on North Main Street, where 
they were interred with Masonic honors. 

The following lines were written by Mrs. L. H. Sigourney on hi3 
death : 

" We misg him from our streets, 
The good, brave man, -who held old time at bay, 
Taking from four score years their fill 
Of vigorous health, and casting still 
Their frosts away. 

We miss him in these days 
When upright men are rare ; 
When the unvarnished purpose fails, 
And gain o'er godliness prevails 
With haughty air. 

Son of that honored State 
Where granite boulders rise, 
Amid the rocky cliffs that soar 
Protective round New England's shore, 
Nearest the skies. 

His virtues rooted deep, 
Nor bowed to Fashion's train, 
Nor truckled to the venal throng, 
But frowned on violence and wrong 
With just disdain. 

Unswerving was his course 
To age from stainless youth : 
So we with mournful reverence pay 
The tribute of our praise this day, 
To sterling worth ! 

L. H. S."

Wright, Bristol, R. L, in 1815. In 1826 he left and became col- 
league pastor with Rev. Ebenezer Gay, of Suffield, Conn. He left 
in 1829, and in 1830 became pastor of the church in Greenwich, 
Conn. In 1837 he was installed pastor of the Free Presbyterian 
Church, New York City. In 1840 he became pastor of the Howard 
Street Church, Salem, Mass., where he remained until 1847. He 
preached in Kingston, R. I., from 1847 to 1857, and afterward at 
Hanover Four Corners, Mass. During the revivals of 1832 his 
preaching was in great demand, and attended with remarkable suc- 
cess. Some twenty years ago he gave up the active duties of the 
settled ministry, resided in Morrisania, N. Y., for a time, and then 
came to New Haven. During these latter years he has been a much 
esteemed and beloved member of a little circle of retired ministers, 
who have been accustomed to hold meetings for mutual pleasure and 
profit, among whom were professors Day, Olmstead and others. 
He has been an active member of the Third and Davenport churches, 
New Haven. 

He has spent considerable time during the later years of his life 
upon his genealogy,* which he traced back hundreds of years through 
an old and honored English family. He had their coat of arms. 
He kept a copious diary. He took a decided and outspoken posi- 
tion against slavery. His sympathies in theology were with the old 
school. His decision of character and strength of purpose carried 
him through many exigencies and sicknesses to a good old age. 

He has resided for many years with Mrs. C. E. Gorham, of New 
Haven. He was sick about a week with infirmities incident to ex- 
treme age rather than from any special disease, and died early on 
the morning of July 21, at the advanced age of ninety-five. The 
funeral was attended from the Davenport Church, July 23, and the 
remains were taken to Newport, R. I., for interment. — The Congre-

* Harriet M. Mann, of Marshall, Mich., was a woman of superior character, and 
virtues and intellectual ability. A devout Christian, fond of home and literature, 
possessed of keen natural wit and a good memory, she was a charming companion 
and wise counsellor, and was honored and beloved by all who knew her. She out- 
lived her mother and brothers, and was never married ; she devoted her later life 
to the care of her aged father, who survived her by a few years. Her death, which 
occurred in middle life, was deeply mourned by a large circle of friends and acquain- 
tances, and by many who had experienced the benefits of her wise counsel and gen- 
erosity of heart. 

The following lines are from a number of other poems written by her, in which 
she seems to allude to her own life, and which show her to have been a woman of 
tender feeling and unusual literary ability. — Communicated by Brady E. Backus, 
D.D., of New York city. 

OUR FATHER'S HEARTH. 

Pile on the wood— the winter blast Were coldness in our hearts as rife 
Bids household fires be bright ; As snows that wrap the earth, 

Draw nigh the chairs — of seasons past Soon, torpid love would warm to life 
Shall be our talk to-night. Beside our father's hearth.

(112) Col. ANDREW 6 MANN 

(Andrew, 6 John* Nathaniel, 3 Richard, 2 Richard 1 ) was born in He- 
bron, Conn., Sept. 14, 1784, and married March 29, 1807, Nancy 
(or Anna) Phelps, of * 

the same town, who ^*<<£ / s/S 

was born Nov. 29, ^'^'^^W^ ^W jZ^*^? 
1787. He removed 

to Unadilla, N. Y., about 1814, and followed the pursuit of farming. 
In 1834 he again removed, and this time to Marshall, Mich., where 
he erected a brick hotel and kept it for years. He was a man of 
enterprise and public spirit. It is said that "he built churches, 
school-houses, saw-mills and bridges." The first Episcopal church 
built at Marshall was erected by him and given to the society ; the 
first printing-press in that town was purchased by him and a few 
others. He was a supporter of Andrew Jackson, was an active 
member of the militia in New York, and served as colonel in his 
district. His wife died at Athens, Mich., Sept. 9, 1850, and 'buried 
at Marshall. About this time, or a little later, he made his home at 
Madison, Wis., where his son had located. He died at Sun Prairie, 
Wis., Sept. 21, 1873, and was buried at Marshall, Mich. Children :

'Twas here we watched the ball's rebound, 

And shook the rattling dice ; 
Nor dreamed that pleasure e'er was found 

In fellowship with vice. 
Wejthought, like Abyssinia's Prince, 

Within the wide world's girth, 
All fair as it appeared — but since 

We've left our father's hearth, 

Thou'st played another game than this, 

On the world's board ; while I 
Have risked the sum of happiness 

Upon a single die. 
Unsnrinking, we will bide the cast, 

For fullness, or for dearth; 
So, our world centres to the last, 

Here by our father's hearth. 

As brightly scintillates the flame, 

As in those hours of glee, 
When grief, or care, was but a name, 

And words as thoughts were free : 
But Time, the thief, can ne'er restore 

The effervescent mirth ; 
As once we met, we meet no more, 

Beside our father's hearth I 



For some are gone. First the frail flower 

Drooped, gently, to the tomb ; 
Then the strong oak, in leafiest hour, 

Crushed, sudden, to its doom. 
And thou and I, of all bereft 

Who owned a kindred birth, 
Thou and I only, now are left 

Beside our father's hearth. 

As waters close above the stone, 

And smooth their ruffled flow, 
Till by no outward trace is shown 

The weight that rests below; 
So we press back the tear that starts 

At mem'ry of their worth ; 
Though grief sits heavy at our hearts, 

And, by our father's hearth. 

Earth's children we— and forth we must, ' 

To mingle in the strife 
Begun in hope, to end in dust : 

For, brother, such is life I 
Coine heart-warm love, or cold pretence ; 

Come misery, or mirth; 
Our holiest thoughts will turn to whence 

They sprung— our father's hearth.

(116) Hon. ABIJAH 8 MANN 

(Abijah, 6 Abijah, 4, Nathaniel, 3 Richard, 3 Richard 1 ) was a politician 
and political leader in the State of New York. He was born in 
Fairfield, N. Y., Sept. 24, 
1793, and died at Auburn, 
N. Y., where he had been 
spending some time, Sept. 
6, 1868. He was early educated in the public schools of Herkimer 
County, aided by the instruction of an excellent mother, who being 
a woman of remarkable ability, bestowed great care upon his early 
training. He began life as a school teacher in Oneida County, but 
soon became a tradesman, and being a shrewd man of business, in 
time acquired considerable real estate property in the principal cities 
and villages in the State, at length purchasing an undeveloped coal 
mine in Lackawanna County, Penn. He early entered political life, 
was a Republican of the Tompkins school, and gloried in wearing 
the " bucktail." He soon became a man of mark ; was elected Jus- 
tice of the Peace, appointed Postmaster, and finally was chosen to 
the Assembly in 1828. He served three successive terms, obtaining 
a wide notoriety for his active hostility to the proposed Chenango 
Canal. "It cannot be of lasting benefit," he declared in a speech; 
" a man can as easily lift himself over the fence by the slack of his 
pantaloons." He remonstrated with Governor William L. Marcy 
for changing positions in regard to the enterprise, and was only 
silenced by the Governor's assurance that the Democratic party must 
support the Chenango Canal so that General Jackson might be re- 
elected President. Mr. Mann was elected to Congress in 1832, and 
re-elected in 1834. 



RICHARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 169 

Having been appointed on a committee to investigate the affairs 
of the United States Bank, he repaired to Philadelphia, but was denied 
access to the institution. He immediately procured laborers and set 
them to excavate their way under the building. This proceeding in- 
duced the officers to let Mr. Mann have his way ; and he made a 
thorough investigation. Mr. Mann used to relate the story with 
great zest. " I had been desired by General Jackson," said he, " to 
come immediately to the President's house at any hour on my return 
to Washington. I arrived late in the night, and was refused admit- 
tance. ' My name is Mann/ said I, ' and the President wants to see 
me.' I was admitted; General Jackson had just risen from the bed, 
and walked up and down the room in an old woolen night-gown, 
which made him look like a ghost. ' Tell me,' he demanded, ' how 
stands the case ? ' I told him the names of members of both Houses 
of Congress who had received money from the bank; and he made 
comments as I told. Naming one most distinguished senator, I add- 
ed, $70,000. ' That money is well spent,' cried General Jackson; 
' he is an able man.' I named a southern Senator, adding $6,000. 
' Too much, too much,' cried the old man ; ' he is only a country village 
lawyer.' So I went through the whole catalogue, detailing one of 
the most extraordinary cases of official corruption then on record." 
The sequel of this investigation, the removal of the deposits, etc. 
are a part of the history of the times. 

Mr. Mann left Congress at the expiration of General Jackson's 
term, and was elected that same autumn to the Assembly. Preston 
King was a member of the same House ; and they were very un- 
comfortable members, and not over careful about the amount of 
trouble they gave the speaker, Mr. Luther Bradish. During one 
filibustering occasion, Mr. Bradish was tasked to the utmost. Mr. 
Mann would speak, and would not stop till three times called on by 
the speaker. " The gentleman from Herkimer is out of order," " The 
gentleman from Herkimer will take his seat," produced no effect. 
But he finally did sit down when Mr. Bradish shouted " Abijah Mann, 
Jr., take your seat." The courtly manners of Mr. Bradish were re- 
pulsive to the rough old political veteran. Several years afterwards 
Mr. Mann removed from Herkimer County, and opened an office in 
Jauncey Court, New York city, residing in Queen's County, and rep-

resenting that County in the Democratic convention, over which 
Governor Fenton presided. Preston King was nominated for Secre- 
tary of State, and Mr. Mann for Attorney General. The American 
party, however, carried the State. In 1857 Mr. Mann was nominated 
by the Republicans for the Senate from the second district, but was 
defeated by Samuel Sloan. This was his last appearance before the 
public. But he took a lively interest in political matters, generally 
acting with the Republicans, though retaining his early attachment 
for the distinctive financial views of the "Barnburners." — (Ext. from 
New York Times, in part,) 

Mr. Mann married, Jan. 18, 1814, Mary Ann Bruce, who died 
Aug. 16, 1873, by whom he had several children, three of whom 
only lived to grow up, viz. :

(118) Hon. CHARLES ADDISON 6 MANN 

(Abijah? Abijah? Nathaniel? Richard? Richard 1 ) was born Jan. 
16, 1803, in Fairfield, Herkimer County, N. Y. His father, Abijah 
Mann, removed from He- ^p ^ y ^ -, 

bron, Conn., among the *S? Z~~^^\*s<f • ^*o»0- g a-» ~w^ > 

earliest settlers. He had married Lavina Ford, a woman of cul- 
tivation and strong character, by whom he had a large family of sons 
and daughters. 

Abijah carried with him from his Connecticut home New-England ideas 
of education, thrift and industry, which he tried to impress upon his family 
and upon the community among which he lived. He was among the foun- 
ders of the Fairfield Academy, an institution which equalled in its standard 
and in the character of its students neai'ly any institution of learning in the 
land at that time. The paternal farm was near the village ; and Charles,

early showing a fondness for books and study, was allowed to cultivate his 
tastes and to receive a thorough English and Classical education. While 
attending school, as was then so frequently the custom, he helped out his 
limited means by teaching during vacation, and after graduation he taught 
in Lewis County for some time. At school he had as fellow students many 
men who afterwards became famous, among them Judge Hiram Denio and 
Rev. Dr. Barnes ; with the former he maintained a life-long intimacy and 
friendship. 

In 1822, at the age of nineteen, he went to Utica, N. Y. He was ac- 
companied by his brother, Abijah, Jr., who on introducing him, remarked, 
that here was a boy " who knew nothing but Latin and Greek," adding, 
however, that he was willing to work. He entered the law office of Lynch 
and Varick, and struggled through three years of professional studies, under 
all the discouragements of poverty. Although comparatively friendless on 
coming to the city, his pleasant manners, studious habits, and general intel- 
ligence soon made him many friends, and these early friendships formed 
with those who too were struggling for success against odds, remained firm 
throughout life. In 1825 he was admitted to the bar, and was taken into 
the firm, Mr. Lynch retiring. He entered at once on the active practice 
of law, but never went very much into the courts. In 1830 Mr. Varick re- 
moved to New York, and Mr. Mann formed a partnership with the Hon. 
David Wager, that lasted eight years, and on Mr. Wager retiring he 
formed a partnership with John H. Edmunds, Esq., which lasted to the 
time of his death. 

The partnership with Mr. Varick had a very great influence on the course 
of Mr. Mann's life. Mr. Varick was largely interested in real estate, and 
on his removal to New York Mr. Mann purchased through him the re- 
maining interests of the great Holland Land Company in the northern 
towns of Oneida County. This property absorbed a large share of his time, 
and led his attention to real estate and business, and away from his pro- 
fession. Still, although he frequented the courts very little, he gradually 
came to be considered the best real-estate lawyer in the County, and his 
opinion on all legal matters was highly prized. This property was dis- 
posed of to settlers, many of them Welch, in plots and farms, and sold 
largely on contract. The terms were always easy, and the creditor lenient 
in pressing his claims, and " Squire Mann " was greatly respected and loved 
by these simple folk with whom he was then brought into contact. This 
land speculation was successful, and laid the basis of his fortune. 

As the city grew, Mr. Mann's attention was directed to many new enter- 
prises. Always piiblic spirited and energetic, with a sound judgment, and 
far-sightedness above the average, his aid was sought; his judgment fol-

lowed in very many of the new enterprises which so rapidly followed each 
other in a young and growing town. He was active among the projectors 
of the Utica & Schenectady Railroad, the beginning of our present 
magnificent system of railways. He was a leading spirit in the Oneida 
Bank after its disastrous robbery, and was successfully employed with 
Horatio Seymour, his life-long friend, in detecting and bringing to justice 
the robbers. He was president of the bank for a number of years before 
his death, and to his influence and labors must be attributed much of its 
present prosperity. He was one of the founders and for many years presi- 
dent of the Utica Steam Cotton Mills, and his theories as to the financial 
management of the institution which were adopted and have been followed, 
have had a great deal to do with its almost unprecedented success. In 
1856, after a long term as director, he was unanimously elected President 
of the New York, Albany & Buffalo Telegraph Company. His election 
marked a new era in the company's history. His great executive ability 
here found scope for its display. The company was in a bad way, but by 
vigorous and decided action its wires were soon put in working order, its 
contracts fulfilled, and the value of the property greatly enhanced. In 
1859 Mr. Mann's health compelled him to give up his position, but the 
work which he had done materially aided the permanent foundation for one 
of the greatest business enterprises of the day. Besides his business con- 
nections, Mr. Mann took an active interest in educational, charitable and 
religious enterprises. 

He was one of the original managers of the State Lunatic Asylum, and 
for a long time chairman of the board. He devoted much time to this in- 
stitution, and was particularly interested in perfecting its present admirable 
system of ventilation and heating. As a counsellor of the Utica Orphan 
Asylum he did good but humble service. The financial management of its 
affairs were largely in his hands, — his brother-in-law and wife having held 
the position in turn of treasurer from its foundation to the present time. 
He was one of the founders of the Utica Female Academy, as well as an 
active trustee of the Utica Free Academy before it was absorbed in the 
common school system. He also rendered excellent service as school com- 
missioner for the five years previous to his death. 

Mr. Mann's attention was early drawn to politics, but here he did not 
succeed so well. He was too honest and high-minded to stoop to the low 
methods of the politician, and the ideas which he advocated were not always 
the popular ones, though time has shown that they were right. His de- 
votion to the public good, as well as his sound judgment and inflexible 
probity, eai - ly secured him a leading position in the community. He drafted 
the charter under which Utica was incorporated in 1832, and was elected a 



174 MANN MEMORIAL. 

member of the Common Council at its first charter election, and re-elected for 
several succeeding terms. In 1840 he was elected to the Assembly by the 
Democratic party, and at once became a leader in that body. He had always 
given particular attention to financial questions, and the clearness and sound- 
ness of his views quickly attracted attention. He was from the first an 
advocate of the " pay as you go " policy, which he believed should be ap- 
plied not only to individual affairs but to those of the State as well. In 
common with many of the leading minds of the day he realized the evils of 
the State debt system, and predicted the embarrassments which would ensue 
from its adoption. His speeches on State finances, and in defence of the policy 
of spending money no faster than it was earned, were widely published ; and 
although the policy which he opposed was adopted, time has demonstrated 
fully the correctness of his views. In 1846, during the divisions of the 
Democrats, he was nominated to a seat in the Constitutional Convention. 
In 1848 he was an active member of the Free Soil party. He was nomi- 
nated for Congress, but owing to party dissentions he failed of election. 
He returned to the Democratic party, but never hesitated to denounce the 
aggressions of the Slave Power, and to declare the necessity of opposition 
to them. In 1850 he was elected to the State Senate by the Democrats, 
and he at once assumed a leading position. On the impending passage of 
the unconstitutional "nine million bill" his sense of right and justice was 
so shocked that he advised the resignation of the Democratic Senators 
rather than to permit the consummation of the outrage. This act was not 
approved of by the electors, and a new Senate was elected which passed the 
bill ; but the courts eventually affirmed its unconstitutionality, thus vindica- 
ting his judgment. Even, those who condemned the resignation were forced 
to admire the unbending integrity and sacred regard for the constitutional 
prohibitions which impelled Mr. Mann as its leading adviser. This act 
really ended his political life. Business and local affairs engrossed his time, 
and after such an experience, he never had any heart again for politics. He 
therefore persistently refused all nominations, although his party friends 
had, on account of his well known financial skill, repeatedly urged him 
to accept of several subsequent nominations, particularly that of Comp- 
troller. He was also tendered the office of Circuit Judge. 

As has been already said, Mr. Mann's business success interfered with 
his success as a lawyer. Still, those who are competent to know speak of 
several cases which he argued with great ability and success. It was as a 
real estate lawyer that he was mostty known, and his opinion valued. A 
large share of his business was the management of trusts and estates for 
others, and few rendered more cheerfully and efficiently a greater amount 
of gratuitous services to women and those not capable or self-reliant enough 
to act in their own behalf, than he. 



RICHARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 175 

In his family life Mr. Mann was most happy. He married, Sept. 27, 
1832, Miss Emma Bagg, whose father and grandfather had been prominent 
citizens of Utica from its earliest settlement. By her he had five children. 
As a husband and father Mr. Mann was fond and devoted. In his earlier 
life, before the cares and anxieties of business and public life absorbed him, 
he spent much of his time with his family, enjoying to the utmost their de- 
votion and love. In the year 1851 he gave up his business and spent the 
year in European travel for the benefit of the health of his eldest daughter. 
This trip he greatly enjoyed, as his large reading and thorough knowledge 
of history, always a favorite study with him, enabled him to do to the utmost. 
His father's family were always objects of his most considerate care, and 
together with his brother, Abijah Mann, Jr., he extended continual and 
generous aid to his less successful and less fortunate brothers and sisters. 
During the last few years of his life, although suffering greatly from his 
disease, — an obscure form of brain disease, — he never complained, but was 
always hopeful and cheerful. His interest in the outside world never flagged, 
and one of the last acts of his life was to attend a meeting of the Board of 
his Cotton Mills. Returning from this, and while partaking of his dinner, he 
was seized with apoplexy, became instantly unconscious and never recovered. 

An extended analysis of his character would be here uncalled for. 
Enough has been said to indicate his general excellence and worth, the 
depth and extent of his abilities. Still it may not be out of place to 
transcribe some of the kind words which have been said by his friends, 
those who knew him best. 

In an editorial in the Utica Observer, Jan. 19, 1860, we find: "In him 
were combined, in harmonious proportions, so many of the most excellent 
traits of human nature, that any enumeration of his virtues would leave 
something still unsaid. He preserved in the highest positions the original 
simplicity of his habits, and was ever mindful of his early days, rejoicing in 
opportunities of assisting those who were similarly situated with himself 
and who seemed worthy of encouragement. His unswerving integrity, 
well balanced mind and excellent common sense pointed him out as the 
natural depositor of the most important trusts, while his great executive 
abilities enabled him to accomplish readily the vast amount of business 
which was thrust upon him. His moderation was wonderful ; passion and 
excitement he never exhibited. He was governed throughout life by the 
firm conviction that permanent prosperity and happiness can follow only 
uprightness, and that retributive justice, though perhaps slowly, is surely 
following the dishonest and corrupt." 

At the meeting of the Utica Bar, the Hon. Francis Kernan, long a friend 
and neighbor, remarked : " The citizens of Utica had special cause to lament 



176 MANN MEMORIAL. 

the death of Mr. Mann. There were few to fill his place here. He pos- 
sessed a clear, quick, comprehensive mind. He was unobtrusive in his 
habits, yet his usefulness was wide spread. In reference to every public 
movement his action and advice were always freely tendered, and were of the 
most beneficial kind. He was a conservative man, of far seeing sagacity, 
who had not only aided those enterprises useful to the community, but had 
stood as a bulwark against those often engaged in, which proved detri- 
mental. In every deserving enterprise he was liberal, unselfish, wise and 
prudent." " As a legislator he was rather put forward into public stations 
by others ; he did not desire it himself. Yet every one had confidence in his 
sagacity. No one had a suspicion that he was selfish. He possessed re- 
markable powers to present, either on paper or in oral debate, his views of 
public policy. As a lawyer he was well versed in the law, and could 
present his points clearly and aptly. He honored the profession to which 
he belonged." 

Judge Ward Hunt remarked that, " professionally speaking, it was a 
great misfortune that he succeeded so well in business ; otherwise he would 
have stood in the front rank as a lawyer." 

The Hon. David Wager, his law partner, writes : " He was one of the 
gems of society, which astonish not so much by their brilliancy as by the 
justness and perfection of their workmanship. Like a well regulated time- 
piece, he was never out of order; and in relation to all his duties, public 
and social, he was true as the sun." 

Though not a member of any church, he felt a high respect for religion, 
and was a faithful attendant at the Reformed Dutch Church, having been 
one of the original movers in its establishment in Utica. It is but just to 
add, that Mr. Mann's worth was fully appreciated by the citizens of Utica. 
The funeral was attended by most of the members of the Bar, Common 
Council, Mechanic Association, and other associations and companies. 
Nearly all the stores on Genesee Street were closed during the hours of 
the funeral, and the large attendance showed how closely Mr. Mann had 
linked himself not only with the fortunes but with the hearts and affections 
of his fellow citizens. 

The Hon. Charles A. Mann married, Sept. 27, 1832, Emma Bagg, 
daughter of Moses Bagg and Sophia Darbyshire his wife ; she was 
born Sept. 15, 1813. Children:

From 1841 to 
1849 he was en- 
gaged variously 

at Randolph, in business, representative to the General Court, and 
school committee. In February, 1849, amid the excitement caused 
by the gold discoveries in California, he went thither via Cape Horn, 
in a sailing vessel owned and provisioned by the passengers. After 
remaining in California a few years, he passed on to Umpqua City, 
Oregon, and again to Marshfield in the same state. Here he became 
interested in coal lands. These were developed by a co-partner- 
ship, requiring buildings, railroad, cars, and vessels. During his 
residence in Marshfield he was for several years judge of the pro- 
bate court of Coos County. 

In 1863, he visited his native town, remaining a year, returning in 
1864 with a wife, Miss Ella 0. Tower, whom he married June 16, 
1864, being the daughter of Isaac and Minora Tower, of Randolph. 
He remained at Marshfield till the fall of 1883, when he sold his in- 
terest in the coal mine and its appendages for a considerable sum, 
and removed to San Francisco, retiring from all business, intent only 
on the education of his two sons, " as a recompense for what his 
father had done for him." Children :

RICHARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 189 

(145) HORATIO EUGENE 7 MANN, Esq. 

{Stephen, 9 Seth, 6 Seth* Joseph' Thomas? Richard 1 ), by profession . 
a lawyer, was born Feb. 22, 1825, in Vermont, and was the third 
son of Stephen and Elephal 
(Brackett) Mann of that state. ^y^f/^Tr^^ *2/ / 

Mr. Mann entered the Uni- <Z?V ^ *SJ r /fc*c^++<S 
versity of Vermont in 1849, but 

on account of poor health he left and subsequently studied law at 
the State and National Law School, then at Ballston Spa, N. Y. 
He first commenced the practice of law in Charleston, 111. He 
went to Minnesota in the Spring of 1857, and after that territory 
was admitted as a state he was a member of the first legislature, 
taking his seat as representative of Hennipin County, December, 
1859. In October, 1862, he received from Hon. Samuel P. Miller, 
associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, the appoint- 
ment of clerk of the United States Circuit Court, which office he held, 
residing at St. Paul, Minn., up to his resignation which occurred in 
1883. Judge Nelson, in his remarks accepting Mr. Mann's resigna- 
tion, bore warm testimony to the ability he had displayed in the dis- 
charge of the duties of the office with which he had been so long 
connected, and the great regret he felt that their very pleasant offi- 
cial and social relations were to be thus severed. Judge Nelson 
was followed by Judge E. C. Palmer and ex-Gov. C. K. Davis, of 
St. Paul, and Hon. Eugene M. Wilson, of Minneapolis, each speaker 
highly complimenting Mr. Mann, and manifesting the regret that 
his resignation had caused them, a regret that would be fully shared 
by every member of the bar, not only of St. Paul and Minneapolis, 
but of the state and sister states practising before the court. Mr. 
Mann, whose wife's health has been benefited by a more congenial 
climate, anticipates removing to some point near the coast and 
further south. 

Mr. Mann married, Sept. 6, 1854, Mary Augusta, daughter of the 
late Hon. Charles Kilborn Williams,* who for many years was Chief 
Justice of the Supreme Court of Vermont, and governor of that state 
1850-51. Children, born in Minnesota, as follows: 

* Charles Kilborn Williams, LL.D., b. Jan. 24, 1782, was a great-grandson of 
Rev. John Williams, of Deerfield, who was captured by the Indians. — See "Memorial

(175) Hon. FRANCIS NORTON 7 MANN 

(Jeremiah, 8 Joel, 5 Joseph, 4 Nathaniel, 3 Richard, 2 Richard 1 ), one of 
the oldest and most prominent citizens of the city of Troy, N. Y., 
died there at 1.30 o'clock Sunday morning, Feb. 8, 1880, in the 
seventy-eighth year of his age. 

The following obituary is taken from the Troy Daily Times of 
Feb. 9, 1880: 

Judge Mann was born in the town of Milton, Saratoga County, on 
June 19, 1802. His parents were Jeremiah Mann, who was a son 
of Joel Mann, a pioneer settler of Milton, and Lydia Norton, who 
was a daughter of Francis Norton, of Hebron, Tolland County, 
Conn. The subject of this sketch early evinced a disclination to 
follow the business of farming, in which his father was engaged. As 
a boy he displayed a singular fondness for books and study. The 
more he gratified himself in this direction the more ambitious he be- 
came to acquire a liberal education, but was obliged to content him- 
self with the meagre facilities afforded by the common school, until 
having reached his eighteenth year, he resolved to leave his home and 
seek a residence in some place in which better opportunities for ed- 
ucational advancement were to be found. He went forth to win 
success in the race for wealth and distinction. On foot and alone 
he proceeded to the house of a Presbyterian clergyman, the Rev. 
Joseph Sweetman, in the town of Charlton, about sixteen miles from 
Milton. The result of the interview between the youth and the 
minister was that the former became a member of the latter's family 
for a period of two years, during which he performed such service as 
was required of him in return for his maintenance. He next entered' 
the Lansingburgh Academy, where he remained one year, and on 



204 MANN MEMOEIAL. 

June 24, 1823, was admitted into the junior class of Union College, 
whence he was graduated on July 24, 1825. On the 4th day of the 
following October he began the study of the law in the office of 
Ashley Sampson and John Dickson, of Rochester, and throughout 
his stay there he supported himself by performing the ordinary duties 
of a clerk. Leaving Rochester, he continued his studies in the office 
of Daniel Cady, at Johnstown. A short time afterward he became 
a student in the office of Samuel G-. Huntington, of Troy, where he 
remained until his admission to the bar as Attorney and Counsellor 
of the Supreme Court in August, 1828. Then he opened an office in 
this city, and here practised his profession for more than half a cen- 
tury, although the last twenty years of his life were chiefly devoted 
to the care of his large and increasing estate. As a lawyer he de- 
clined to engage in any cause devoid of merit, and he was more than 
ordinarily successful in the courts. He was elected a Supervisor of 
the second ward in 1835, and again in 1857, and as an Alderman 
he represented the same ward from 1844 to 1847. From 1840 to 
1845 he was one of the judges of the Court of Common Pleas of 
Rensselaer County. He was chosen Mayor of Troy in March, 1847, 
and was thrice reelected to the office by increasing majorities. At 
all times during his manhood Judge Mann manifested a profound in- 
terest in religious matters. He early became a communicant of the 
Protestant Episcopal church : was one of the founders of St. John's 
Church in Troy in 1830, and ever afterward continued to be a mem- 
ber of its vestry, occupying the position of senior warden at the 
time of his death. On October 25, 1848, Judge Mann was married 
to Mary J. Hooker, daughter of Marquise de Lafayette Hooker, 
of Poultney, Yt., a lineal descendant of the Rev. Thomas Hooker, 
founder of the city of Hartford, Conn. The fruits of this union 
were two sons and one daughter, all of whom survive their parents, 
Mrs. Mann having died July 28, 1875. About a year ago Judge 
Mann sustained a fractured limb by a fall upon the sidewalk, and 
since that time had been confined to his house. More recently he 
suffered a stroke of paralysis, from the effects of which he died. 

Careful economy, strict attention to the performance of whatever 
duties, public or private, were imposed upon him, the possession of 
shrewd business qualities and sound judgment, enabled the deceased 



RICHARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 205 

to amass a large competency. His property consists principally of 
real estate situated in this city, West Troy, Cohoes and vicinity. 
Judge Mann's honesty and integrity were above questioning. His 
obligations were always promptly met, and he rigidly exacted the 
same promptness from those with whom he had business dealings. 
The management of his large estate kept his time fully occupied, and 
he found little opportunity to indulge in the pursuit of enjoyment, 
but he was far from being unsocial, and, especially during the last few 
years of his life, took delight in talking of the scenes and incidents 
of the past. He was very closely identified with the growth and 
prosperity of Troy, and his wisdom and judgment were of great 
value in the administration of municipal affairs. He had the honor 
of being the chief executive officer of the city when Gen. Wool re- 
turned in triumph from the Mexican war, and presided over the 
public meeting of welcome held in the front of the court house, upon 
which occasion the mayor, in behalf of the citizens of Troy, presented 
the general with a magnificent sword. 

Judge Mann was always a liberal contributor and earnest sup- 
porter of St. John's Church. He was for many years one of the 
most prominent members of the parish, and evinced a lively interest 
in its welfare up to the time of his death. He took a great interest 
in the Troy Orphan Asylum, and was a Trustee and a member of 
the Finance Committee, also President of the Board of Directors of 
the Troy Academy. He was one of the founders of the Young 
Men's Association, and was the member from the second ward of the 
committee appointed to obtain signatures to the constitution of that 
organization. At the time of his death he was a director of the 
Mutual National Bank.

he entered Middlebury College, Vermont, from which institution he gradu- 
ated with distinction in 1860. During his career in college he taught three 
winters in New England, and "boarded around." 

On leaving college in 1860, he came to California and began his career 
in this State as a teacher of a country school in Sutter county. He subse- 
quently taught a country school in Yuba county. He taught in the town 
of Colusa one term, and was afterwards vice-principal of the Grammar 
School in Marysville for about three years. During his residence in Marys- 
ville, Mr. Mann read law in the office of Belcher & Belcher, and was about 
to apply for admission to the Bar, when he was attacked with a malarial 
disease and forced to seek a more salubrious climate. He next taught one 
term as principal of the East Oakland Grammar School. In 1866 he came 
to San Francisco, and was appointed to a position in the Boys' Latin School. 
When this school was consolidated with the Boys' High School Mr. Mann 
was placed at the head of the classical department, a position which he held 
up to the time of his election as City Superintendent in 1877. 

His sterling character, correct habits and manly bearing have secured for 
him the admiration and hearty support of the parents of the pupils he has 
taught. In fact Mr. Mann was one of the most popular teachers in the 
Department, both with his pupils and with their parents. 

Mr. Mann has filled the office of City and County Superintendent in this 
city since December, 1877, and has made, in our opinion, the most capable, 
efficient and conscientious Superintendent that we have ever had in San 
Francisco. He is a clear, an able and an original thinker, a good speaker 
and a ready and forcible writer. A few weeks after his election he de- 
livered an address before the Dashaway Association of this city, which de- 
servedly attracted public attention at the time. 



220 MANN MEMORIAL. 

In that address Mr. Mann ably and forcibly pointed out the evils of the 
existing administration of school affairs, and fearlessly advocated most im- 
portant and salutary reforms. 

Mr. Mann was president of the State Teachers' Association for 1877-78, 
and delivered an able and thoughtful address on the " American Idea of 
Common Schools," before that body at its annual meeting at Sacramento. 
This address was published in the " School and Home Journal," and is con- 
sidered by our leading educators as one of the ablest educational addresses 
ever delivered in this State. During the past two years he has delivered 
many able and practical addresses before the students of the State Univer- 
sity and several educational associations in various parts of the State. 
These addresses have placed him in the foremost rank of leading American 
educators, and have been republished in nearly all the leading educational 
journals of the United States. One of these addresses on "Ungraded 
Schools," delivered at Los Angeles last year, secured for Mr. Mann a high 
place in the esteem of all friends of public schools in the southern portion 
of the State. Mr. Mann's report of the public schools of San Francisco for 
the year 1878, is one of the most able, complete and valuable reports ever 
published in this city, and has been highly complimented by the leading 
journals at the East. Mr. Mann's private life is above reproach, and in his 
public acts he has ever adhered to right, honor and duty.
