AUTHOR'S PREFACE. 

IISBT'IS 

Early in 1894 the compiler became interested in the his- 
tory of his own ancestry and commenced making inquiries in 
regard to it. During the progress of his researches there 
was awakened in him a desire for more extended information, 
and he was encouraged to continue his efforts until he had 
accumulated sufficient material to warrant him in publishing 
a " Genealogy of the Rix Family and Collateral." 

From the experience thus gained he had acquired such a 
V fondness for genealogical research that it became to him an 
^ almost irresistible fascination, and in consequence he was 
> ^ impelled to continue the pursuit in the collateral branches of 
7k"" the family. He was especially prompted to do this from the 
recollections of his dear old grandmother, and the many good 
things received from her in his childhood ; her constant 
solicitude for the happiness of others, which led her to min- 
ister to their necessities ; and her abiding faith in the Divine 
Master, all tending to make the desire greater to honor her 
memory, and to ascertain from whom her noble qualities 
were inherited, and also to perpetuate the same in some 
permanent form by publishing the history of her ancestry. 

Mistakes will undoubtedly be found in the volume, but 
they exist, not for want of painstaking efforts to avoid them, 
but generally from imperfect manuscripts and contradictory 
statements sent by members of the same family. Many 
persons would be surprised to see the errors in their own 
letters, which are frequently the result, not of ignorance, but 
of carelessness. What is worth recording at all is worth 
recording carefully and correctly. I should esteem it a favor 
when mistakes are discovered to have the corrections sent to 
me. 






4 EASTJIAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

The method of this work is that which is recommended by 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society, in an 
important sense the foster-mother of almost every New 
England genealogy. 

The author is under obligations to all who have furnished 
records, who are many, but he feels under especial obliga- 
tions to Mr. Sumner Kimball, of Lovell, Me. ; Mr. Enos 
Eastman, of Plymouth, Wis. ; Miss Mildred Eastman, of 
Kearsarge, N. H. ; and to Mr. George P. Eastman, of Mil- 
bury, Mass., who turned over to him all the old records 
gathered by his grandfather, Rev. Lucius Eastman, who 
spent years on the work, and who published a pamphlet of 
about ten pages of the first four generations of the family. 

The abbreviations used in this work are but few and will 
be readily understood. The marginal numbers indicate that 
a further record is given, which will be found further along 
in the book. 

It is the earnest hope of the author that the result of his 
labors may impart to others the same gratification it has 
afforded him in its preparation, and he will be pleased to 
receive any additional material, which will be carefully pre- 
served and deposited with the New Hampshire Historical 
Society, at Concord, N. H., where future genealogists of the 
family can obtain it, should it be thought advisable years 
hence to publish another edition.

INTRODUCTION. 



Genealogy has been defined as " an account or history of 
the descent of a person or family from an ancestor ; the 
enumeration of ancestors and their children in natural order 
of succession." 

But it is sometimes asked, "Of what use is it ? " The 
question might with almost equal propriety be asked con- 
cerning the kindred sciences of history and biography, for if 
there is utility in preserving a record of events, or of the life 
and character of individuals, then science which embraces, as 
it is now understood and practiced, in a considerable degree 
both these features, must also be interesting and profitable. 

Our ancestors, the early founders of New England, were a 
reverent, conscientious and industrious people, and a consider- 
ation of their lives, their hardships and their achievements, 
cannot fail of proving salutary. It is both a natural and 
honorable ambition on the part of any man to have his gene- 
alogy traced, but unfortunately there are some who cannot 
see the necessity or desirableness of having their pedigrees 
ascertained, or of preserving any papers or documents bear- 
ing upon them, that they may have their descent defined and 
arranged in authentic genealogical order. Most people 
appear content with mere traditionary details of their lineage, 
without being at the pains to authenticate them by reference 
to proper records or regular genealogical authorities. And 
to show the apathy some have, the author will state that he 
has repeatedly sent self-addressed stamped envelopes for 
information, and to this day no reply has been received. 

But he will say in addition, and to their credit, that the 
Eastmans, as a general thing, have taken a good deal of 
interest in the work. 



6 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

There is a satisfaction to most persons in being able to 
trace their lineage to remote ancestors ; in knowing where 
they lived, and what scenes and hardships, prosperity and 
adversity, they passed through, and in recollecting what ben- 
efits they conferred on their posterity. 

As nothing is certainly known of Roger Eastman pre- 
vious to his emigrating to this country, his settling at Salis- 
bury seems a suitable epoch from which to commence an 
account of his family and descendants. Roger Eastman and 
the first settlers in Salisbury and adjoining towns were 
Puritans, and under the tyranny of the Tudors and Stuarts, 
many left their native country to enjoy civil and religious 
liberty. They did not come here to accumulate property, to 
live in ease and splendor, or acquire fame. They had vastly 
higher and holier views and aims, to obey God and prepare 
themselves for heaven. 

These sons of the forest had sound hearts, firm in their 
resolutions, and persevering effort. Their faith in God never 
failed. They kept constantly in view the grand design of 
their comingto this wilderness. 

To the Puritans are we indebted for our civil liberty and 
free institutions, as well as for our religious privileges. 

It might under other circumstances seem unbecoming in 
us to speak of the virtues of the descendants of our ances- 
tors, but in a history of the family it would seem strange if 
we did not find some who rose to eminence. We find more 
of the name who were college graduates than any other. 
Many have been ministers, lawyers, members of congress and 
many have held other public positions. Many have been 
mechanics, inventors and farmers. 



HISTORY AND GENEALOGY 

OF THE 

Eastman Family in America. 



The farthest back found of the Eastmans is of John East- 
man, of Romsey, county Southampton, will dated September 
24, 1602, proved October 22, 1602, to be buried in church 
of Romsey : 

To son Roger Eastman all lands whatsoever in default to 
son John, also to Roger, 100 marks at 14, to be paid by my 
father Roger Eastman, to my son John 50 pounds at 14, to 
daughter Elizabeth and Margaret when 21 or married 40 
pounds each. Ditto to child my wife now goith with, to 
servant Elizabeth Head 5 pounds. Residuary legate and 
executrix, wife Anne ; overseers, Roger Eastman, Michael 
Mackeall and Mathew Mundsy. 

Witness : 
Walter Godfrey. 
Giles Newe. 
Thomas Stote. 

The first one of the name in America was Roger Eastman', 
born in Wales, England, in 161 1, and died in Salisbury, 
Mass., December 16, 1694 ; married Sarah Smith (.'), born 
in 1 62 1, and died in Salisbury, Mass., March 1 1, 1697. They 
were both members of the church in Salisbury in 1694. 



S EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

Roger Eastman came from Langford, county of Wilts, and 
sailed from Southampton in April, 1638, in the ship Confi- 
dence, John Jobson, master, bound for Massachusetts Bay- 
Colony. 

On the ship's papers he was entered as a servant of John 
Saunders. It is believed that on account of the emigration 
laws, or for political reasons, his real rank was higher than 
appears. 

Many traditions have been handed down, but it is believed 
that Roger Eastman was the sole ancestor of all the East- 
mans in this country. The name has been, in some cases, 
spelled " Easman," even by members of the same family. 
IVTo record of his marriage has been found or of his wife's full 
name, and it is only by tradition that we suppose it to be 
" Smith." Roger Eastman received lands in the first divi- 
sion in Salisbury, in 1 640-3. His minister's tax in 1650 
was Ss. 3d. 

From Salisbury the tribe dispersed, but the major part 
settled in the southern towns of New Hampshire and the 
northern towns ot' Massachusetts. 

The third generation, however, settled farther north, fol- 
lowing up the Merrimack river, while others settled further 
south in Massachusetts and Connecticut and others in Maine. 
From these places they scattered over the United States 
and Canada.

lO EASTMAN FAMILY IN AMERICA. 

4. Philip Eastman- (Roger"), born in Salisbury, Mass., 
Oct. 20, 1644 ; married ist, a woman whose name is 
unknown, by whom he had one daughter. He married 2d, 
Aug. 22, 1678, Mary Morse, born Sept. 22, 1645, widow of 
Anthony Morse and daughter of Thomas Barnard and Elenor, 
his wife, both of Newburyport, Mass. He married 3d, Mar- 
garet . Mr. Eastman first lived in Haverhill, Mass., 

but his house being burned by the Indians, March 15, 1697, 
and some of his family captured and others dispersed, and 
himself captured at same time, he finally, after his escape soon 
after, concluded to settle in Connecticut, where his son 
Philip had preceded him. 

A full record of his family has never been found. On the 
town record of Woodstock, Conn., where he settled, mention 
is made of Philip Eastman as being represented by his 
heirs in the distribution of lands as laid out among the pro- 
prietors in 1 7 1 5 ; mention is also made of his buying a piece 
of land in Ashford, a town adjoining Woodstock. Mr. East- 
man was a soldier in King Philip's war. He died before 
1714.

lived in Haverhill previous to 1675. He took the oath of 
allegiance in 1675. His estate was administered upon in 
1688, and his brother John was appointed guardian of his 
only son, Jonathan, and of his mother, Deborah, who was 
then in captivity. Thomas Eastman was a soldier in King 
Philip's war in 1675-6. Mary Corlis, Deborah's oldest 
sister, married William Neff, Jan. 23, 1665, who went after 
the army, and died in Rhode Island in February, 1688-9. 
Mary was taken prisoner with Hannah Dustin, March 15, 
1697, and shared in her trials. Mrs. Neff had been a widow 
nine years at the time of her capture, and remained so till 
her death, which occurred Oct. 22, 1722.

7. Joseph Eastman- (Roger'), born in Salisbury, Mass., 
Nov. 8, 1650 ; died April 4, 1692 ; married Mary Tilton, born 
Feb. 8, 1649. She was the daughter of Hon. Peter Tilton, 
of Hadley, Mass. After Joseph's death his widow married 
Joseph Guernsey, with whom it is said she quarrelled. They 
removed to New Jersey. It is very likely she took her 
children with her. Joseph settled in Hadley, and probably 
did so on his marriage. There is a record of a Joseph East- 
man, who was a soldier in King Philip's war, and as no other 
Joseph Eastman was old enough to be a soldier in that war, 
this Joseph must be the one.

Flanders ; she died July 24, 1718. He married 3d, Oct. 5, 
1 7 1 9, Sarah, widow of Samuel Carter and of Ephraim Brown.

man in 1690 ; admitted to the church in Salisbury July 3, 
1681, and his wife, Anne, June 16, 1695. His will was

ing berries on a hill on the east side of the Merrimack river in 
Concord, when she discovered a young fawn asleep under 
the shade of some bushes. Taking off her apron, she threw 
it over the fawn, and clasping it in her arms, carried it 
home. She sold it to Andrew Mc'Milan for six pounds of 
sheep's wool. Mr. Eastman lived first in Concord, N. H.

the battle of Bunker Hill, where his captain was killed. 
There is a tradition that Collins was killed or died in the 
war, but it is not at all likely, because he was discharged 
at the time his company was. He died soon after his 
discharge, as the following shows :

March 15, 1697. She married 2d, Aug. i, 1699, John Swan, 
born Aug. i, 1668 ; died in Stonington, Conn., May i, 
1743. They resided in Haverhill until their third child, 
William, was about two years of age, when they removed to 
Stonington, Conn. When they removed to Stonington, 
William was a sturdy boy, and Susannah, wearied with much 
work, and carrying him in her arms, deposited the sleeping 
boy in an empty tub in the cellarway, telling her husband it 
must be put on the load of goods, while she, with Ruth 
behind her on the horse, went awhile on the journey, then 
she would take the babe in her arms. John, the eldest, ran 
by the ox team or was placed among the goods when tired. 
After a few miles on their journey, Susannah called to Capt. 
Swan to give her the babe, when lo and behold ! he had for- 
gotten to put the tub and child on to the load. 

Smart man — that curtain lecture can be heard to-day by 
their descendants all down the one hundred and ninety-two 
years. 

They retraced their steps and found " little Billie " still 
sleeping and started again, right this time. Susannah's first 
child was killed at the same time that Thomas Wood, the 
husband and father, was.

to be correct. He married March 4, 17 10, Sarah Peaslee 



EBENEZER EASTMAN^ OF HAVERHILL, MASS. 21 

(spelled by some Peasley), daughter of Col. Nathaniel and 
Judith (Kimball) Peasley and grandson of Dr. Joseph Peasley. 
The latter was born in Haverhill, Mass., Sept. 9, 1646 ; died 
Nov. 5, 1723. Dr. Joseph was the son of Joseph, the 
emigrant, made freeman in 1642. He settled in Haverhill 
before 1746, thence to Amesbury, where he died Dec. 3, 
1660. 

Captain Eastman was the first settler in Concord, N. H. 
There are many interesting facts concerning the part Mr. 
Eastman took in the settlement of Concord ; the services he 
rendered, and the affairs of trust and honor committed to 
his charge, were many. Having considerable property, and 
coming, as he did, at the earliest period of the settlement of 
the town, with his six sons, the eldest of whom was fifteen 
years of age and able to do a man's work, it is no wonder 
that Captain Eastman became in a few years the strong man 
of the town. 

In 1 73 1, his house and home lot were in better order and 
he had more land under cultivation than any other in the 
settlement. From his youth he had been inured to hardships 
and to bold and daring enterprises. When nine years of age 
his father's house was destroyed by the Indians. At the age 
of nineteen he joined the regiment of Colonel Wainwright in 
the expedition against Port Royal. 

In 171 1, when the British fleet under Sir Howenden 
Walker against Canada arrived in Boston, the land forces 
that were to accompany the expedition were organized with 
great despatch, and Mr. Eastman, then about twenty-one 
years of age, had command of a company of infantry, which 
embarked, with others, on board a transport. In going up 
the St. Lawrence river they encountered a violent northeast 
storm, in which eight or nine of the vessels were lost and 
about 1,000 men met a watery grave. The story as related 
by Jonathan Eastman, a grandson of Captain Eastman, is 
that as night came on the orders were that all the vessels 



22 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

should follow the Admiral's ship, which had a large light 
hoisted at masthead for a signal. Captain Eastman had been 
somewhat acquainted with the navigation of the river, having 
sailed up and down before. In the night the light of the 
Admiral's ship was not to be seen, and it was at the time when 
the fleet was doubling a very dangerous and rocky point or cape. 
When the Admiral's fleet had fairly doubled the cape and got 
into line, the light appeared in such a position as to draw the 
line of shipping directly on to that dangerous point. Aware 
of the danger. Captain Eastman went to the commander, and 
informed him of the peril, and begged him to alter the 
course of the vessel ; but being under the influence of 
liquor, this the captain positively refused to do, saying that 
"he would follow his Admiral if he went to h — ." Captain 
Eastman replied, " Well, I have no notion of going there, and 
if you won't alter the course of the vessel, I will." 

" If you do," replied the captain, "your head shall be a 
button for a halter in the morning." 

Informing his company of the danger and relying on 
their support. Captain Eastman ordered the captain below 
and the helmsman to change his course. Thus they escaped 
the wrecks which befell other vessels of the fleet, by which 
so many lives were lost. The next morning the humble 
captain tendered his acknowledgments to his deliverer, and 
begged his friendship. On the following day the Admiral 
came aboard, and on seeing Captain Eastman abruptly said, 
" Captain Eastman, where were you when the fleet was cast 
away ? " 

" Following my Admiral, sir," replied he. 

" Following your Admiral ! you Yankees are a pack of 
praying devils. You saved yourself, but sent my men to 
h— ! " 

Among the many traditions and anecdotes that are related 
is one that, soon after settling in Concord, he made a journey 
to Haverhill on horseback, and purchased a barrel of 



EBENEZER EASTMAN^ OF HAVERHILL, MASS. 23 

molasses, which he intended in some way to convey home 
with him. He contrived what was called a car, that was 
formed with two shafts, one of which was fastened to the 
horse and the other to drag on the ground. Lashing the 
barrel of molasses on his car, he proceeded on his journey 
homeward along the path through the wilderness. He got 
along very well until he got to the Soucook river, when, after 
crossing and ascending the hill, which was very steep, he had 
got nearly to the top, his horse starting suddenly, the rigging 
gave way, and down went the barrel full speed, and was 
dashed to pieces against a tree. The captain, summoning all 
the patience at his command, exclaimed, " Oh dear, my wife 
will comb my hair, yes, and harrow it too ! " It was truly a 
hard case. 

Captain Eastman went to Cape Breton twice, the first time 
March i, 1745, in command of a company, and was present 
at the reduction of Louisburg, June 16, 1745. He returned 
Nov. 10, 1745. Early the next year he went again, and 
returned home July 9, 1746. He was also a captain in Col. 
Sylvester Richmond's regiment, of Massachusetts, Feb. 6, 
1744. Mr. Eastman lived on the " East Side," was a farmer, 
and was employed for many years in public affairs. He 
commenced a two-story house, but died before it was 
finished. He died July 28, 1748.

HANNAH EASTMAN'S CAPTURE. 

Haverhill, Mass., was first settled in 1640. It was the 
thirtieth town within the limits of the state of Massachusetts, 
thirty-second in the list of incorporated towns, and forty-ninth 
in New England list. 

It was a frontier town for more than seventy years, 
and there were few New England towns that suffered so 
severely from the depredations of the Indians. Its early 
history is one long record of blood and misery. The early 
colonies suffered from six wars : first, the Pequot war ; second. 
King Philip's war ; third. King William's war ; fourth. Queen 
Anne's war ; fifth, the three years, or Lovewell's war ; 
sixth, the second French war. 

Hannah Eastman's capture occurred during Queen Anne's 
war, which commenced in 1703, and ended in 171 3. The 
foes with whom the colonists contended were the Indians 
and Canadian French. 



28 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

It would be hard for the present generation to conceive of 
the suffering of the inhabitants at that time. Haverhill 
village at this date consisted of about thirty houses, and it 
was rare to find a family that had not lost some of its mem- 
bers at the hands of the Indians. The men went armed to 
their daily labors, and went to church with a Bible in one 
hand, and loaded gun in the other. They were safe from 
Indian attacks nowhere ; their fields, their dwellings and their 
churches were alike subject to their stealthy and fiendish 
raids. 

It was really an "Age of Terror" for those hardy and 
courageous men. But history can show none more heroic 
and none that exhibit a more fearless and undaunted spirit. 

At this period Jonathan Eastman and his young wife 
Hannah had made for themselves a home in Haverhill. 

Jonathan was born in Salisbury, Mass., Jan. 8, 1680. He 
was the son of Thomas and Deborah (Corlis) Eastman, and 
grandson of Roger'. Jonathan married April 8, 1701, 
Hannah Green, born Dec. 20, 1677, on the historic "Dustin 
Hill," in Haverhill, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth Green. 
Their first child, Thomas, was born March 17, 1702, and 
died July 20, 1703. The second child was Abigail, born 
Feb. I, 1704. 

The Indians seldom made their appearance before the 
opening of spring, and on this account less care was taken to 
guard against surprises during the winter months. 

But as a means of defence, the selectmen had appointed 
six garrison and four " houses of refuge." These were 
either built of brick or had a single layer of brick between 
the outer and inner wall. They had but one outside door, 
often so small that a single person could enter at a time. 
The buildings were of two stories, with windows two and 
one-half feet long, and eighteen inches wide, secured inside 
by iron bars. The glass was extremely thick and very small, 
was cut in diamond shape and fastened with lead instead of 
putty. 



HANNAH EASTMAN S CAPTURE. 29 

There were two rooms on the lower floor, and the entrance 
to the chambers above was by a ladder that could be drawn 
up, should the lower floor be taken by the enemy. 

The fireplaces were of enormous size, and wood of sled 
length was often burned in them. The ovens opened on the 
outside of the building, generally at one side, behind the fire- 
places and were very large. 

Late in March, 1704, Jonathan removed with his wife to 
the fifth garrison, which was owned and commanded by 
Joseph Bradley. It was situated in the northerly part of the 
town, and has long since been torn down and no trace of it 
remains. 

In one of the upper chambers of this garrison, their little 
daughter, Abigail, was born F"eb. i, 1704. 

Eight days later (Feb. 8), Jonathan left the place to attend 
to some necessary duties at their old home, intending to 
return before nightfall. Before leaving, he stopped for a 
moment at the bedside of his wife. He was not a demon- 
strative man, but he bent down and kissed her and turned 
away and carefully drew the covers over the dimpled hand 
of his tiny daughter. Mrs. Bradley was in the lower room 
engaged in soap boiling. He stopped only to inform her 
when he expected to return and passed outside. 

It was a lovely day ; the air was crisp and keen, the sun 
shone brightly, the snow was deep upon the ground, and 
drifted in many places quite deep. 

During the winter, the settlers had grown secure and 
careless of danger, and the sentries were absent from their 
stations and even the gates were open. Little did Jonathan 
think as he rode forth that he was watched by cruel eyes, 
far less did he think that he was never again to see his 
infant child, or that many weary months would pass 
before he again met his beloved wife. 

Why the Indians allowed Jonathan to escape will never 
be known. His powerful frame and commanding presence 



3D EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

may have deterred them. However, they let him pass on, 
and waited until between three and four o'clock in the after- 
noon before attacking the garrison. They then cautiously 
approached, and finding the way clear, rushed through the 
open gates before they were discovered. Jonathan Johnson, 
a sentinel, who was standing inside the house, shot at and 
wounded one of them, but the savage, infuriated by the pain, 
made the air ring with terrific yells as he pushed forward 
into the house. 

With great presence of mind, Mrs. Bradley filled her ladle 
full of boiling soap and threw it over him. He was so 
severely burned that he soon died. The rest of the party 
rushed forward and killed Johnson, and made Mrs. Bradley 
and some others prisoners. Only three persons escaped from 
the garrison. Then they mounted the ladder and entered 
the room where Mrs. Eastman was alone with her child ; 
affrighted, she sat up in bed, but the movement disturbed 
the child and it began to cry and she took it into her arms, 
pressing it to her wildly beating heart. 

With a fiendish yell, the foremost savage snatched it from 
her clinging hands and brutally dashed it against the door- 
post, beating out its brains, when, with a satisfied grunt, he 
threw it into a corner and ordered Mrs. Eastman to arise and 
prepare to go with him. 

The poor woman was so stunned and horrified by the 
shock of seeing her child murdered before her eyes, that she 
could not move. The savage then seized her by her long 
hair, and brandishing his tomahawk over her head, forced 
her to obey. 

The party hastily collected their prisoners and plunder 
and commenced a hasty retreat toward Canada. The cap- 
tives were separated, some going in one direction and some 
in another. Night was coming on, the weather was cold, 
and the snow was quite deep, the wind blew keenly over the 
hills, yet Mrs. Eastman was compelled to arise from her 



HANNAH EASTMAN S CAPTURE. 3 I 

. sick bed. Her yearning eyes were fastened upon the little 
heap in the corner, and her arms ached to clasp again the 
tiny form, but it was not allowed. 

Her captors were in a hurry, forcing her down the ladder, 
and with threatening words and gestures compelled her to 
go forward in her weary march towards Canada. They took 
her first to Ossipee Lake, where she remained until spring, 
when they went on to the " Ox Bow " in Newbury, Vt. 
Here they planted corn and remained until it was in the 
second hoeing, when they were visited by another party of 
Indians, who probably informed them that some scouting 
party was in search of them, for the next day they hastily 
packed up and left for Canada. 

Pen cannot describe the tortures endured by Mrs. Eastman 
during this terrible journey. Weak and weary she dragged 
through the long days and the longer lonely nights. Often 
she tried to escape, but her captors guarded her so closely 
that she found no opportunity. The memory of that journey 
to Canada remained with her through life. 

It was a deep, unbroken, and seemingly inexhaustible 
wilderness that daily grew between her and her beloved 
home and friends. Pathless mountains, swollen and almost 
impassable rivers lay behind and before her. No friendly 
smoke curled from the chimney of a white inhabitant, but 
she sometimes saw the red flames leaping heavenward — 
flames kindled by her savage captors, and telling the fearful 
story of other wrongs. When within a few mOes of their 
destination, Mrs. Eastman was too exhausted to go on ; she 
was therefore left alone to spend the night in the wilderness. 
A kind squaw gave her a piece of punk-wood set on fire to 
make a smudge to ward off mosquitoes. Their poisonous 
bite had caused her face to swell so badly that the Indians 
called her " Fat Hannah." The next morning they sent a 
squaw to find her. The swelling had subsided, so as to show 
her extreme emaciation, and the squaw seeing her thus, piti- 
fully exclaimed, " Why, Hannah !" 



32 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

The tribe were encamped at Three Rivers in Canada, 
near to a French settlement, and soon after their arrival 
there, a French woman became interested in Hannah, seeing 
she was a captive, and was very kind to her, and often gave 
her salt to season her food. 

She finally proposed that Mrs. Eastman make her escape 
and offered to secrete her from the Indians. Mrs. Eastman 
gladly accepted the offer, but was obliged to keep out of 
sight, lest she be again captured. Winters passed with 
their snows and wind ; springs succeeded with their early 
buds ; summers followed, filled with flowers and sunshine ; 
autumns brought forth their abundant harvests, but the 
heart of the lonely woman grew sick with hope deferred. 
For nearly three years she had been held captive, but she 
well knew that if Jonathan were living he would search 
for her, but she fully understood how small his chance was 
of finding her. 

A plan for escape began to take form in her mind, for she 
felt an intense desire to return home. The thought grew 
upon her, and finally took definite shape. She shuddered 
as she remembered the fearful journey through trackless 
forests, invested by fierce wild beasts and ruthless savages. 
Could she hope to pass such dangers alone ? 

One day she stood beside her chamber window, thinking 
deeply on her plan of escape, when her attention was 
attracted to a man who was passing the house. Her breath 
came faster as she gazed upon the tall, deep chested, broad 
shouldered man, with a strong, serious face. 

In the whole neighborhood there was not as splendid a 
specimen of manhood. He was fully six feet four inches in 
height, and of powerful frame. He was dressed in a long 
jacket, or what was called a " fly coat," made something like 
a surtout, reaching half way to the thigh, a striped jacket 
under a pair of small clothes, like the coat, made of flannel 
cloth, that was fulled, but not shirred. His flannel shirt was 



HANNAH EASTMAN S CAPTURE. 33 

buttoned loosely at the throat, he wore woolen stockings and 
thick leather shoes and a broad brimmed fur hat. There 
was nothing unusual in the costume ; similar costumes were 
generally worn by meit in moderate circumstances, when 
about their ordinary business. 

But his unusual height, broad shoulders, and erect car- 
riage seemed strangely familiar. She was almost certain 
that it was her husband that was passing. She called to 
him by name, "Jonathan," when he stopped and looked 
around, but seeing no one, passed on. She called again, but 
this time he did not hear. She flew down stairs and informed 
the French woman, who immediately sent a little girl to call 
him back. The child could speak no English, but by 
motions and pulling his coat she persuaded him to return 
with her. 

There were many changes in Hannah's appearance, caused 
by exposure and hardship, and at first Jonathan did not 
recognize her, but it was the happiest moment of his life 
when he again clasped her in his arms. 

It was the third time he had passed the house while search- 
ing for her. He at once redeemed his wife, and they started 
back to Massachusetts. Their journey was of long duration, 
for they had to walk the entire distance, but despite its 
necessary hardships the journey was a delightful one, and 
left in their minds impressions destined to bear future fruit. 
We have no record of the length of their stay in Haverhill. 
In 1 710, we find Jonathan Eastman enrolled as a " snow- 
shoe man." The general court (June 19, 17 10), having 
ordered that a large company of soldiers under the command 
of Lieut. Col. Saltonstall be kept constantly armed and 
equipped and exercised in the town, and that these soldiers 
might be better prepared for every emergency, ordered them 
to be supplied with snow-shoes. 



34 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

In April, 1723, the pastor of the first church in Haverhill, 
finding that the church records were lost, or that there never 
had been any, requested all members then living to give 
their names to him. Among the members was Hannah, 
wife of Jonathan Eastman. 

No records of this church earlier than 171 1 can be found. 
Again, Dec. 5, 1723, in the town record of Haverhill, among 
other petitions for land, we find that Jonathan Eastman 
requests 20 acres in " Providence neck," and his request was 
granted. 

It is a tradition that Jonathan lived at one time in Ando- 
ver, Mass., but there is no record of it. In 1746, they lived 
in Concord, N. H., in a fort known as " Eastman's " fort. 
It stood at the fork of the road at St. Paul's School, about 
two miles west of the city on what is known as the "mill 
road." It was to this fort that the party were destined 
when massacred, Aug. 10, 1745, about one mile out of Con- 
cord. 

March 2, 1747, Jonathan executed a will, appointing his 
son Amos executor, and it was admitted to probate in Exeter, 
May 30, 1758. The following year (1759), Amos removed 
to Hollis, N. H., taking his mother with him. Mr. Eber 
Eastman, of No. Haverhill, said when living, that his mother 
had seen Hannah, when an old lady, riding horseback behind 
her son Amos in Hollis. In a list of people in HoUis who 
died at great age, the name of Hannah does not appear. 

The date of the deaths and the place of burial of Jonathan 
and Hannah Eastman is unknown, but as we trace the life 
and character of this devoted couple, we cannot fail to 
observe that they possessed to a notable degree the true 
pioneer spirit. We find the tribe ever the leaders, but never 
the followers of civilization. 

Was it simply a coincidence, that along the line of that 
fearful journey, where Hannah Eastman once trudged a 
miserable captive, where the path had been marked by fire 



JONATHAN EASTMAN^, OF HAVERHILL, MASS. 35 

and the tomahawk of the savage, with her devoted husband, 
she should return to plant the seeds of civilization and 
religion ? 

Where the Indian once hunted and fished and lived his sav- 
age life, pretty villages now cluster among the trees and hill- 
sides, and well-filled barns and storehouses attest to the fruitful- 
ness of the country and the mdustry of the inhabitants. Hard 
indeed would it be to find a hamlet, however small, that did 
not contain one or more of the descendants of Jonathan 
Eastman and wife Hannah. ^ l^SG^''! '"5 

From Massachusetts line to Canada, they have left the 
impress of their lives upon the land and upon the people. 

The descendants of Jonathan Eastman show on the Xew 
Hampshire Revolutionary rolls their loyalty to the colony 
in 1776. Four brothers, grandsons of Jonathan Eastman, 
served in the war of the revolution. Take the Eastmans as 
a whole, the writer has found them extremely patriotic, and 
all, with the exception of only two, very fond of their country. 

No costly granite, nor sculptured marble, marks the resting 
place of this couple. Mournfully and sweet the breezes chant 
a requiem over those lonely graves hidden among the granite 
hills. But in the hearts and memories of their descendants 
they will ever be held in honored remembrance, until that 
" last great day " when each hillside grave shall give up its 
dead, " touched by God's right hand." 

" Jonathan and Amos Eastman both of Haverhill, bought, 
of Barachias Farnum Millwright of Rumford a piece of land 
lying in said Rumford containing one hundred & 90 acres 
being said F"arnum's homestead and commonally called the

the laying out and selling of said land was accepted by the 
proprietors of Rumford at their meeting on the second day 
of February, 1737, togather with sLx acres and twenty seven 
perch more or less lying on Millers brook so called." 

Deed dated April 11, 1745. 

Note. This deed probably establishes the date, or about the 
date, of Jonathan's removal from Haverhill, and also that at 
the time he lived in Haverhill instead of Andover. It is a 
little singular the deed makes no mention of a consideration 
at all. 

This property is now owned by St. Paul's School Corpora- 
tion, Concord.

field, and granddaughter of Thomas Root, of Northampton, 
Mass. Peter Eastman probably settled in Suffield, Conn., at 
that time in Massachusetts, as we find in the records of that 
town the birth of five children. 

From Suffield, Peter removed to New Jersey, probably on 
account of his mother going there, sometime between the 
birth of his son Hezekiah and son Benjamin. The earliest 
mention of him in New Jersey is in the deed mentioned 
below. It is very probable all his children, except the first 
five, were born in New Jersey, but no records of their birth 
can be found. He returned to Connecticut and located in 
New Fairfield in the thirties, as the proprietors records of 
Cornwall, show he bought land there in 1738, and he was 
called then "of New Fairfield." He sold the land in 1739, 
" all rights and title," so that it is evident he never lived there, 
although the history of that town says he " built the first 
house there and the first meeting of the proprietors was held 
at his house." The records say, however, that though this 
meeting was appointed at his house it was changed to another 
man's. 

We have no record of his death, but it is probable he died 
soon after the leasing of his last and only farm to his beloved 
son, Joseph. 

No will or settlement of his estate has been found. 

The records of this branch of the family have been so 
imperfectly kept that not much data concerning them can be 
obtained, consequently we have to rely on tradition. One is 
that he had twelve sons and some daughters. It is possible 
he had more than one wife, though we have no record of

very doubtful of his having a second wife, as in his will dated 
Dec. 18, 1753, two days before his death, he mentions his wife 
Sarah. Also he mentions his son Timothy, of whom we 
have no account. He also mentions his " Brother Philip

Husbandman, being sensible of my mortal state, and finding 
the infirmities of age coming upon me, but through the good- 
ness of God of perfect mind and memory and of a disposing 
mind and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to 
die. Do make and ordain this my last will and testament : and 
in the first place I give and recommend my soul into the 
hands of God who gave it, and my body I commit to the 
earth to be buried in a decent Christian manner at the 
descretion of my executor after named, nothing doubting but 
at the general ressurection I shall receive the same again 
by the mighty power of God, and as to such worldly goods 
and estate as it hath pleased God to bless me within this 
life, I give and dispose in the following manner and form. 

" Imprimis : I give and bequeath to Rachel Easman my 
well beloved wife, one cow, three sheep and one swine, and

as she shall remain my widow : as also the improvement of

my indoor household good after my wives decease as also one 
pound four shillings lawful money each to be paid to them

great commoner of England, for whom he was named. 
He was a member of the national convention in 1840,

vention iu same year. He was elected to congress in 1854,

Sept. 23, 1738, daughter of David and Mary (Wilson) Kim- 
ball, and granddaughter of David^ Benjamin^ Richard", the 
emigrant. During the French and Indian war, in Septem- 
ber, 1754, he was one of Capt. John Chandler's company of 
scouts, and in 1755 he was sergeant in Capt. Joseph East- 
man's (his brother's) company of Rangers, who marched to 
Albany, then to Fort Edward, in the expedition against 
Crown Point. September, 1762, he was one of Captain 
Marston's company, at Crown Point. Early in the Revolu- 
tion he enlisted as sergeant, on April 23, 1775, for three 
months and si.xteen days, in Captain Baldwin's company, in 
Col. John Stark's regiment. He was with Stark on the 
seventeenth of June at the battle of Bunker Hill. During 
the siege of Boston, in 1775, in consequence of the Connect- 
icut troops retiring at the expiration of their term of enlist- 
ment, General Washington sent messages to the Committee 
of Safety of New Hampshire, for three regiments of militia to 
be raised immediately for his reinforcement, and within ten 
days thereafter, New Hampshire furnished thirty-one com-

pany on the list was from Concord, N. H., had fifty-one 
privates, three sergeants, three corporals, commanded by 
Capt. Benjamin Emery, of which company Moses Eastman 
was second lieutenant. These companies of militia were 
discharged soon after the evacuation of Boston, March 17, 
1776. In September, 1777, Moses Eastman again enhsted 
in Capt. Joshua Abbott's company, in Lieut. -Col. Henr)' 
Gerrish's regiment. This company marched to reinforce the 
Northern Army, and while they arrived too late for the 
battle of Bennington, they joined the army at Saratoga, and 
were present at the surrender of Burgoyne. In August, 
1778, Moses Eastman again enlisted as sergeant in Capt. 
Aaron Ouinby's company of volunteers, in Col. Moses Kelly's 
regiment, in the expedition to Rhode Island. Moses was a 
signer of the Association Test, in 1776, wherein each of the 
subscribers solemnly engaged and promised that they would 
to the utmost of their power, at the "risque" of their lives 
and fortunes, with arms oppose the hostile proceedings of the 
British fleets and armies against the United American colo- 
nies. In the Old Fort Cemetery in East Concord, a fine 
granite monolith was erected last October (1894) to the 
memory of thirteen Revolutionary soldiers buried there. Five 
of the names inscribed on the tablet were Eastmans, among 
whom were Moses and David Eastman.

Thankful Reed; 2d, March i, 1759, Dorothy Humphrey, 
daughter of John and Hannah (Russell) Humphrey, and 
widow of John Gaggail. Mr. Eastman was licensed as a tavern 
keeper in Ashford, in 1762. On the town records of Ashford 
will be found the births of his first sbc children, and on the 
records of Rehoboth, R. I., will be found those of his second 
wife, so it is supposed he removed to Rehoboth about 1767. 
On the Congregational church records in Rehoboth will be 
found the date of the baptism of the children of Samuel East- 
man, viz., Abigail, Dorothy, John, Ruth, and Samuel, baptized 
May 17, 1772. On the same records will be found the name 
of Dorothy Eastman, a member of the church, Jan. 26, 1772. 
This was probably Mrs. Eastman, as her daughter Dorothy 
would have been rather young to join the church at eleven 
years of age. It is not known when or where Samuel or his 
wife died, but it is thought in Rehoboth.

JONATHAN EASTMAN'', OF ASHFORD, CONN. 81 

74. Jonathan Eastman-" (Philip^, Philip-, Roger"), born 
in Ashford, Conn., June 3, 1724 ; married Elizabeth Pearse, 
and settled in Walpole, N. H. Mr. Eastman was a farmer. 
Late in life he removed to Northfield, N. H., but in about a 
year, in 1787, removed to Enfield, where he soon went to the 
" Shakers," where he died. Of his family record it is difficult 
to obtain much, especially dates, as his records were lost by 
fire at the " Shakers." It is not known how many of his 
chDdren went there with him, but one, Jonathan, went with 
his father, but when about fourteen years of age left them.

75. Peter Eastman^ (Jonathan', Thomas% Roger"), born 
in Haverhill, Mass., April 20, 1710 ; married Elizabeth 
Harriman, of Hampstead, N. H., where he settled and died. 
He, with Peter Green (probably his uncle), owned a large 
share of Hampstead, as also the island in Island Pond in 
Hampstead. We have no further record of him except the 
birth of his children on the town books. 

The proprietors of Haverhill, March 21, 1731, gave to 
Hon. Richard Saltonstall, a member of His Majesty's Council, 
one half of the large island in Island Pond, in consideration 
of valuable ser\'ices rendered the proprietors ; the remainder 
was sold to him for thirty shillings an acre. It was then 
estimated to contain two hundred acres, and called Island 
Farm in Perch Pond. It was sold by Saltonstall in 1734 to 
Jonathan and Peter Eastman and Peter Green, who sold it to 
Gov. Benning Wentworth in 1741. It was owned by him 
and his heirs until 1780, and from then till 1865 it was trans-

ferred seventeen times, at which time it was purchased by its 
present owners. This Jonathan Eastman must have been 
the father of Peter, as his will mentions Wash Pond, which 
lies in Hampstead, though no record is in existence of Jona- 
than ever living in Hampstead. Peter settled in the town 
about 1732, and made his home near the western shore of 
Wash Pond. Peter Eastman was town clerk of Hampstead 
in 1758 and 1760. On a petition sent to Gov. Benning 
Wentworth and to the General Court assembled Jan. i, 
1743-4, the names of Peter and William Eastman appear. 
In a list of persons assessed in Hampstead in 1764 the name 
of Dr. Peter Eastman appears.

Philips, Nov. 15, 1737, Molly Lovejoy, born Dec. 17, 17 18, 
bapt. Dec. 24, 1718, daughter of Henry and Sarah (Far-

1764. He married 2d, Sarah Abbott, daughter of James and 
Abigail (Farnum) Abbott, of West Parish, Concord, N. H., 
born Aug. 13, 1 730. Sarah was the widow of Job Abbott. 
Mr. Eastman settled first in Pembroke, N. H., and about 
1768 removed to Conway, N. H. He purchased of Thomas 
Chadburn all the interest he had in the " mill lot," with 
the improvements thereon, but soon transferred by gift, or

Otherwise, the property to two of his sons that settled in 
Conway. Soon after, he removed to Lovell, Me., where he 
established the ferry across the Saco river, and when the 
toll bridge was built a little further up the river, he tended it. 
The most of his children settled in Conway and the adjoining 
towns, and at this day there are more of the name in that 
part of the country than any place known, the greater part of 
them descendants of Richard. He took a prominent part in 
the settlement of Fryeburg, and was a deacon of the church 
there.

four were born in Hampstead, N. H., and perhaps others. 
Mr. Eastman removed to Haverhill, N. H., in the early 
settlement of the town, but he stayed but a short time, 
removing to Bath, N. H., in 1767, where he lived the rest of 
his life. He lies in an old abandoned burying ground in 
Bath, in the neighborhood known as " Petty Borough." The 
railroad crosses his farm in a deep cut just below Lisbon 
village, about two miles.

Walker, January 9, 1743, Mehitable Bradley, the ninth 
child of Abraham Bradley, of Haverhill, Mass., died in Hollis, 
N. H., Nov., 1813. Amos lived in Concord, N. H., with his 
father, in 1746, in Eastman's fort, at the fork of the road at 
St. Paul's School, about two miles west of the city. Mr. 
Eastman was a lieutenant in the war. Mr. Eastman, in 



AMOS EASTMAN'', OF HAVERHILL, MASS. 85 

company with John and William Stark, of Derryfield, now 
Manchester, N. H., in April, 1752, was on a hunting expedi- 
tion near Baker's river, in Rumney. The company had been 
very successful, estimating their furs at five hundred and 
sixty pounds old tenor. Here they fell in with a party of 
ten Indians of the St. Francis tribe. It being in time of 
peace danger was not at first apprehended, but towards even- 
ing the Indians made a prisoner of John Stark, who had sepa- 
rated from the rest to collect traps. Suspecting mischief, 
the party was proceeding down the river, William Stark in a 
canoe and Amos Eastman on the bank, when the Indians 
came upon them, took Amos prisoner, shot into the canoe 
and killed Stinson, who was afterwards stripped and scalped. 
William Stark escaped through the intrepidity of his brother 
John, who struck up the gun of the Indian who aimed at his 
brother. Eastman and John Stark were taken captives to 
St. Francis, Canada, which they reached the ninth of June. 
Here they were compelled to run the gauntlet, the usual 
ceremony in such cases. The young Indians arranged them- 
selves in two lines, each armed with a rod to strike the cap- 
tives as they passed along. Eastman was severely whipped, 
but Stark snatched up a club and made his way through the 
lines, knocking the Indians down right and left whenever 
they came within reach, and escaped with scarcely a blow. 
Eastman was sold to a French master and was kindly treated, 
as was also Stark, who became a favorite among the Indians. 
Both were redeemed after about six months by a Mr. Wheel- 
right and Captain Stephens, from Charlestown, who were 
sent from Massachusetts for the purpose of obtaining the 
release of the prisoners. Stark paid for his redemption one 
hundred and one dollars, and Eastman sixty. They returned 
home by the way of Lake Champlain and Albany. Mr. 
Eastman removed to Hollis, N. H., in 1759. Mr. Eastman 
was also a soldier in the French and Indian war.

about him. He lived in New Fairfield, Conn. There are no 
church records of the church there prior to 1751, and of the 
eight male members at that date, the name of Azariah East- 
man appears as one. The same records say the wife of 
Azariah Eastman was admitted a member by profession, Jan. 
2, 1757. The same records say the widow Eastman died 
in 1777. This must have been the widow of Azariah, and of 
course if so he must have died first. The dates of baptisms 
will be found on the books of the church in New Fairfield. 
It is very likely his children were all born in New Fairfield.

New Jersey in Sept., 1724 ; died in Marshall, N. Y., Sept. 2, 
1802; married Oct. 12, 1746, Phebe Hendricks. When a 
boy of fourteen or fifteen years of age, he went with his 
parents to New Fairfield, Conn., where he was married. A 
deed of 1756 shows where Joseph bought lands in New Fair- 
field, and in 1761 leases his father's farm. Another deed of 
1788 calls Joseph of " New Milford," so he may have 
removed there after his father's death. In 1788, he removed 
to Kingsbury, Washington county, N. Y., and in 1798 we 
find him in Paris, Oneida county, and 1799 in Marshall, once 
a part of Paris. In a small plot of ground taken off the 
original farm in Marshall, lie the remains of Joseph and his 
wife Phebe. The following are inscriptions from their tomb- 
stones :

married in Kingston, May 6, 1758, Anna Judkins. Mr. 
Eastman accompanied by his small family removed from 
Kingston to Salisbury, N. H., in 1765. Another record 
says he did not remove to Salisbury till 1774. He settled on 
the west side of " Smith's Hill," where he cleared up a large 
farm, and erected the buildings now (1899) occupied by 
Titus H. Wadsworth. He was a prominent man in the town 
and served with distinction in the Revolutionary war, and was 
one of the committee of safety. His first four children were 
baptized in Kingston, the fourth one in 1766, so that it is 
possible he did not remove to Salisbury until the latter date 
mentioned.

bornton before the Revolutionary war ; first settled and 
cleared up the farm, Lot No. 12, second division. This he 
did in part previously to his marriage to Abigail Barker, of 
Stratham, but whether he left his bride as well as his farm, 
when he responded to his country's call as one of the " six- 
teen Sanbornton men " prior to May 27, 1775, is uncertain. 
He was an " ensign " in Capt. Jeremiah Clough's company,

lost his life at sea, Nov. 10, 1791. He was in Harpswell, 
Me., as early as 1770. He probably went there earlier than 
that. The ear marks of his cattle are recorded on the town 
records, May 30, 1774. Many traditions have been handed 
down of this family; one is from a very aged descendant. 
" Three brothers came from England to America. One of 
these settled in New Hampshire. The other two settled in 
Harpswell, Me. One of these took the king's side in the 



Il8 EASTMAX FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

Revolutionary war, and settled on the English side of the St. 
Croix river. He finally went to Nova Scotia. The third 
brother, whose name is not recalled, espoused the cause of 
liberty. His wife's name was Susan, of Dutch origin. She 
was a woman of superior strength, and at all the raisings and 
gatherings in all those days they had wrestling bouts, and she 
would always throw the last man. She could pick up a cask 
of cider and drink from the bung. She could butcher a 400- 
pound hog and hang him up without aid from any one. She 
drove six English officers from her house because they were 
saucy to her." The farm of Capt. Kingsbury Eastman has 
been in the family for over 130 years. His house stood at 
Cundy's Harbor, East Harpswell. In Vol. v., page 160, 
Mass. Rev. Rolls, will be found the following : " Eastman, 
Kingsbury. Return of men enlisted by Capt. John Snow to 
serve at Harpswell ; service from July, 1777, to Dec. 7, 1777 ; 
also sergeant in Capt. Nehemiah Curtis' company. Col. Jona- 
than Mitchel's regiment; entered service July 7, 1779; dis- 
charged Sept. 25, 1779; service, 2 mos. 18 days on Penob- 
scot expedition ; roll dated Harpswell and sworn to at North 
Yarmouth, Cumberland county." He married ist, Nov. 22, 
1770, Mary Hadly ; 2d, Ruth Mareen Eaton. He had 
seven sons and four daughters, of whom we have only the 
following.

Mass., in 1725, son of Joseph and Mary (Tucker) Chandler ;

served in the French war ; was by trade a blacksmith, and 
had a farm about a mile north of the centre of Epping, 
N. H., near the Governor Plummer estate, on Oak Hill. It 
is recorded at Epping that " in 1760 Capt. Joseph Chandler's 
cattle mark was a crop of the left ear." He was highway 
surveyor in 1763, and at the annual parish meeting, held 
March 14, 1774, he was chosen parish clerk. On the 2d 
January, 1775, Captain Chandler was chosen one of the com- 
mittee of inspection and correspondence for the parish of 
Epping. He was a captain in the Revolutionary war, and at 
a meeting, July 22, 1776, of the New Hampshire Committee 
of Safety, their record says : " Gave Southampton soldiers 
leave to go join Captain Chandler's company." He died in 
the service of his country, at Mt. Independence, Sept. 17, 
1776. An inventory of the estate of Capt. Joseph Chandler, 
late of Epping, was exhibited Jan. 29, 1777, by Lydia Chand- 
ler, administratrbc. The real and personal estate amounted 
to ;£849 :o : 3, and on Feb. 25, 1778, she exhibited a further 
account of personal estate of ^272:3:61/2, of which 
she had paid out ;^224 :4 : 8.

died in Newbury, Vt., March 25, 1S31, aged 90 years. He

he removed to Newbury, Vt., leaving Weare the day Daniel 
was married, driving an ox team with the goods, Daniel driv- 
ing the cattle and sheep, the women on horseback. They 
purchased one of the best farms in Newbury, leading from

the river to the town, now (1899) owned by the Cailtons. 
Mr. Eastman was one of the first settlers of Weare. He was 
a Revolutionary soldier, and was at the surrender of Bur- 
goyne. He was a hard working man, and was often heard to 
say that he never used spirituous liquors in all his life. In 
religion he was a Quaker or Friend. Thomas Eastman 
bought of John Kimball, of Amesbury, for 400 pounds old 
tenor, one half of lot 2, range 3, in Weare, and settled on it.

130. Stephen Eastmans (Roger-*, Roger^ John-, Roger'), 
born in Newton, N. H., Alarch 27, 1744; died in Lyndon, 
Vt. ; married in 1767, Anna Colby, born Aug. 17, 1747, 
daughter and fourth child of Abraham Colby and Elizabeth, 
his wife. Anna was born in Amesbury, Mass. They lived 
in Newton, N. H., till 177S, when they removed to Bow, 
N. H., and bought the tract of land at the base of " Wood 
Hill." 

The first definite account of Abraham Colby, who, with 
his five sons, settled on "Wood Hill," in Bow, N. H., in 
1768, is to be found in the Amesbury, Mass., Records, where 
it is stated that the children of Abraham Colby and Elizabeth 
(Blaisdell) Colby went with him to Bow. Aug. 16, 1768, 
he bought of John Leavitt, of Stratham, part of lots Nos. 3 
and 4, in the 14th range, being 120 acres, for ^45, lawful 



128 EASTMAN FAMILV OF AMERICA. 

money, equal to Si 50 at that time. The road through Bow 
was only a bridle path from Samuel Rogers', where Lewis C. 
Goodhue now (1899) lives, to Elisha Clough's and Francis 
Carr's, on the hill where the first meeting house was built, 
and extending on to where Bow Mills village is now located. 
Here on this land his five sons settled. 

On the town records on file by the town of Bow, the name 
of Stephen Eastman appears as one of the signers of the 
Association Test. Imagine such a man, with four small 
children to support, the eldest not quite seven years of age, 
taking such a stand. It meant life or death to him. It is 
related that when he was past 80, he would, with staff in 
hand, every Sabbath, in fair or foul weather, walk sbc or eight 
miles and return, to attend the church to which he belonged. 
He was a shoemaker, and wished to have his son Stephen 
follow the same business, but it was distasteful to him ; they 
had some trouble about it and the boy bolted. He went to 
his uncle Colby and conferred with him, and he advised him 
to make a bee, and fell ten acres of trees on his father's farm 
and follow farming. He was then only fifteen years of age, 
but followed the advice, and when his father came home from 
an absence of a few days and saw what had been done he 
exclaimed, "We are ruined!" But from this day things 
began to prosper better, and he admired the management of 
his son so well that in time he deeded all his property to him, 
expecting him to stay at home and care for him and his wife 
in their old age. After a while a new house was to be 
erected ; one wanted it to face one way, and the other wanted 
it to face the other. The result was that Stephen, Jr., left the 
old home in Bow, and went to Vermont. He first went to 
Danville, looked over the ground, but not finding anything to 
his liking, he went to Sutton and bought one hundred acres, 
July 12, 1804. He moved his family there in February, 
1806. He lived first in a neighbor's house a mile away from 
his purchase, but the sixteenth of June following raised a 



ICHABOD EASTMAN', OF XEWTOX, X. H. 1 29 

house on his own lot, and his son David was born the same 
day. When they moved into their new home, his wife 
carried the babe, and he the Httle girl, not quite two years 
old, and a bag of meal. When Stephen, Jr., left Bow, he had 
a deed of the property there, and when he had left home his 
father selected David, his youngest son, a man of amiable 
and even disposition, to stay and care for him in his old age, 
After Stephen had been in Vermont a few years, he saw it 
would be to the advantage for his father and brother to go to 
Vermont to live, and he selected a tract of land in the edge 
of Lyndon, and adjoining his farm, and then went to Bow for 
them ; but no argument could convince them until he said, 
" You will be obliged to go, for I have sold and deeded the 
place over your heads." Then they concluded to go, which 
they did, including all the children except his second child, 
Hannah, who had married.

" This day mj- age is eighty-eight, 
How like a dream ! hovT short the time ! 
The scenes aud trials Tve passed through 
All lie before me to review, 
The adage true in every land, 
We 're twice a child, and once a man. 
iNIay childhood's innocence be mine, 
With age, experience, all combined. 
Time swiftly passes on we see. 
Waits not for you, waits not for me. 
Then seek a city out of sight. 
Where all is found that can delight."

1755, Capt. Daniel Chandler, born in Concord, N. H., Feb. 
14, 1735. She died leaving a daughter, Sarah*", born in Con 
cord, Dec. 15, 1756, published to Abner Flanders, of Con- 
cord, Aug. 14, 1773. Captain Chandler married 2d, Sarah 
Merrill, daughter of Dea. John Merrill, who kept the first 
ferry over the Merrimack in Concord. Captain Chandler was 
a Revolutionary soldier. 

177. Stilson Eastman' (Ebenezer*, Ebenezer', Philip-, 
Roger"), born in Concord, N. H., Jan. 7, 1738 ; died in 1837 ; 
married a daughter of Capt. Nathaniel Hutchins. Mr. East- 
man was a ranger under Lieut. John Stark ; was in the 



STILSON EASTMAN', OF CONXORD, N. H. I 5 I 

bloody fight in Jan. 1757, when Major Rogers was twice 
wounded, and the command devolved upon Lieutenant Stark. 
Eastman related that on receiving his second wound, Major 
Rogers advised a retreat, but Stark, taking command, 
declared that he would shoot the first man that fled, and that 
he would fight, and " fight the enemy till death", and then 
if necessary, retreat. While Stark was speaking, a ball took 
off the lock of his gun, and at the same moment observing a 
Frenchman fall, he sprang forward, seized his gun and 
returned to his place and continued the fight. At Crown 
Point, General Amherst had command of the army. The 
General was so fond of milk that he kept a cow in camp, 
which had liberty to run at large to find the best feeding 
ground. It happened after a while that the cow was miss- 
ing and could not be found. Soldiers were sent in all direc- 
tions, but could not find her. At length Eastman found her, 
to the great delight of the General, who, as a reward, ordered 
Eastman's canteen to be filled. Eastman at this was as well 
pleased as the General, for no one loved the good " critter" 
better than he. The cow had strayed away into a piece of 
meadow where she found good feed. Well, for the sake of 
the good " critter" Eastman would occasiciiially drive the cow 
to the same place, where no one could find her but himself, 
and whenever he brought in the cow, he got his pay in the 
canteen. Mr. Eastman became embarrassed in business and 
lived a dissolute life until he was eighty years of age, when he 
was converted to religion and went to live with his son, Caleb, 
in Rumford, Me. In 1825, Caleb was allowed by the town 
twenty dollars for the support of his father.

Chandler, died ; 2d, July 12, 1776, Esther Johnson, 

daughter of Francis Johnson, of Woburn, Mass. She died 
Sept. 17, 1834. Mr. Eastman was a man of robust frame 
and distinguished daring, active and enterprising. He was 
an ardent patriot ; was in Capt. Joseph Abbott's company of 
volunteers that marched to reinforce the northern army 
September, 1777, and was ready to fight at any time after- 
wards for his country. Squire Eastman, as he was usually 
called, lived on the east side of the Merrimack river in Con- 
cord, on the spot near where the old garrison house stood, 
where his grandfather lived, and where all his children were 
born. He had but very little education, but learned to write 
on birch bark, and in later years was well posted in all 
political and public affairs. As illustrations of his enterprise 
and force of character, it is related that when a boy of fifteen 
years he was sent by his father on foot to Conway, N. H., 
driving two cows and two shoats the whole distance, and 
going by the way of Saco, Me. Near a solitary cabin in the 
woods, about half way to where he was to stop, he met a bear 
in the path, which he faced, till old bruin, put out of counte- 
nance, fled. He lodged in the cabin alone at night, and 
reached Conway in safety the next day. 

Mr. Eastman's second wife was the daughter of Francis 
Johnson-*, Uriah^, Major William^, Captain Edward', who 
came from Hern Hill, County of Kent, England, in 1630, 
and settled in Woburn, Mass. He represented Woburn in

JANE EASTMAN^ OF COXCORD, X. H. I 55 

died in Peacham, Vt., Sept. 27, 1828 ; son of Samuel Cham- 
berlain. General Chamberlain settled in Canterbury, N. H., 
with his parents. He took his bride on horseback to 
Peacham, where he was an early settler. The following will 
be found in the records of the Governor and Council of the 
State of Vermont, Vol. iv, page 105 : 

"Gen. William Chamberlain volunteered in the army in 
1775, and served as orderly sergeant in the invasion of Canada, 
suffering all sorts of privations and being one of nine officers 
and privates out of the company of 70, who sur\ived to take 
part in the battle of Trenton, N. J. At the expiration of 
his enlistment, he returned to N. H., but on Burgoyne's 
invasion he again enlisted and was in the battle of Benning- 
ton, Vt., from which it is said he brought away some 
trophies of personal combat with his enemies. About 1781, 
he removed to Peacham, Vt., being then clerk of the pro- 
prietors of the town, where he held the office 12 years; 
justice of the peace 24 years ; town representative 12 years ; 
chief justice of Caledonia Co., 17 years ; councillor of the 
state, 7 years; Lieut. Gov., from 1813-1815 ; a delegate 
to the Constitutional Convention 1791-1814; presidential 
elector in 1800. A member of Congress two terms from 
1803-5 and 1 809-1 1. In private life he was upright, a 
friend of order, learning and religion. He lived to see the 
wilderness become a cultivated and populous region, and as a 
matter of far greater moment to himself, closed a long, use- 
ful and eventful life on earth in humble trust of the better 
life in heaven. He received his title as General, from com- 
missions he held in the state militia from Major to Major- 
General." 

His Revolutionary record can be found on the New 
Hampshire Revolutionary Rolls in Vol. i, pages 194, 305, 
304, and 465.

1 88. Obadiah Eastmans (Obadiah^ Ebenezer^, Philip^,

Mehitable Merrill, daughter of Peter Merrill, born in Salem, 
N. H., April 16, 1747, died in Benton, Dec. 27, 1815. Mr. 
Eastman removed to Coventry, now Benton, N. H., in the 
early settlement of that town, and located on what is now 
known as High street, and about one mile from Warren Sum- 
mit depot. He was chosen surveyor of Salem, N. H., where 
he lived in March, 1767 ; was chosen fence viewer March 31, 
1779, and on July 13, 1780, was chosen or drawn as petit 
juror. When he first moved to Coventry he was chosen 
one of a committee to lot the town, and was its first surveyor. 
He called the first town meeting held in the town. He was 
a Revolutionary soldier ; was in Capt. Jesse Page's com- 
pany, Col. Jacob Gale's regiment, Aug. 5, 1778, as corporal; 
joined the army in Rhode Island, Aug., 1778, discharged Aug. 
25, 1778. (N. H. Rev. Rolls, vol. ii, p. 568.) Mr. East- 
man and his wife are buried in the old burying grounds on 
High street, in Benton, N. H. In 1892, Mr. Ira Whitcher 
erected a stone at his grave which reads: " Erected in 1892, 
by Ira Whitcher, in memory of one of the first settlers of 
Coventry." It seems that he went to Coventry before his 
family, as his daughter Mehitable was born in Salem in 1780, 
and he was in the war in 1778, from Haverhill, a town 
adjoining. The exact date of his going to Coventry is 
unknown.

Landaff, N. H., Sept. 11, 1830 ; married Jan. 7, 1786, Anna 
Kimball, daughter of Reuben (Capt.) Kimball, born in Con- 
cord, Jan. 7, 1780; died in Landaff, N. H., Dec. 3, 1849. 
Mr. Eastman settled in Landaff, N. H., during the early 
settlement of that town. They lived at first in a log house, 
but in a few years built a good frame house, and a few 
years later a more commodious one, which for many years 
he kept open for the traveling public. The old town records 
show that year after year, at the annual town meetings, there 
was voted to Simeon Eastman, license to keep tavern the 
ensuing year. Some times the town meetings were held at 
the tavern and meetings for the election for the district 
comprising the towns of Landaff Franconia and Lincoln. 

In 1818, his hou.se was burned, Mr. Eastman escaping 
very severe burns in trying to save something. Mrs. East- 
man and daughter, Lucinda, then about eighteen years of 
age, barely escaped with their lives. Mr. Eastman's loss 
was severely felt, there being no insurance, but he soon 
built another house, which is still standing (1899). 

Mr. Eastman was a thrifty man, a man of unusual enter- 
prise, a man of perfect integrity, genial, companionable, a 
good provider, and generous to those in need. Mrs. East- 
man was one of the noble cooks in all that region and her 
fame reached far and near. Her marriage portion from her 
father was one barrel of pork, a barrel of beef, one cow and

speaker he shone with great lustre, his style and lan- 
guage were unconsciously correct and chaste. In his 
manner there was an ease and nonchalance which set 
him off at great advantage. His personal appearance

gence which his language conveyed. It was, while in

his second child was born, viz. : Jonathan, he being the first 
white child born in the town. Richard, with his brother 
Noah, soon received from their father the property he pur- 
chased of Thomas Chadburn, including the first "frame" 
house built in the town, and soon after, Richard, Jr., and wife 
Abiah, his brother Noah, and Hannah Holt (whom Noah 
afterwards married), occupied this house. When Richard, Sr., 
and his sons first went to Conway, they settled where they 
could find buildings, but they soon found that on account 
of the spring freshets everything was carried away, and so 
removed to higher ground. Richard, Jr., moved a house 
from the intervale to the "mill " bridge, where seventeen of 
his eighteen children were born. Susannah Runnels had by

difficulty dragged him from the house and through the deep 
snow to the barn yard. They were exposed to the extreme 
cold of a winter's night for a considerable time before help 
arrived, when they were taken to the house of a neighbor.

Lovell, Me., Jan. 16, 1844; married Sarah Whiting, she died 
in Lovell, Jan. 19, 1 806, aged 44 years. He lived in Lovell, Me., 
but it is not known at what date he went there, but he was town 
clerk in Lovell for the years of 1803,4 and 5. His fine penman- 
ship, at that time, showed him to have been a man well skilled 
in the use of the old time goose quill with which he wrote. 
The names and dates of the births of his children on the books 
are of his own handwriting. It is possible that his children 
were born in Lovell. For the last few years of his life he 
was blind. Mr. Eastman was a Revolutionary soldier. His 
name appears on the Revolutionary rolls of Massachusetts in 
the secretary of state's office, Boston, as being under Lieu- 
tenant Farrington, Fryeburg, Me. The last years of his life 
were spent with his son Phineas, who lived on " Eastman's 
Hill," Lovell, Me.

Stow, Me., Oct. 8, 1846; married Betsey Kilgore, born 
April 2, 1776, died in Stow, Me., Feb. 16, 1873, age ninety- 
six years, ten months, fourteen days. She was a sister of 
James Kilgore, a Revolutionary soldier in the war that tried 
men's souls. Mr. Eastman was a farmer. The first years 
of his life were passed in Conway, N. H., where his first chil- 
dren were born. From here he moved to Fryeburg, Me., 
residing on what is well known as Christian Hill, where most 
likely his last eight children were born, as their names are 
found on the town's books. His last place of residence was 
in the town of Stow, Me., where he died. His old family 
Bible, now in possession of one of his great-grandchildren, 
shows very plainly the marks of time and frequent usage ; 
and here within is to be seen the complete register of his 
family made by his own plain and legible handwriting. In 
the record of his decease, the prefix of " Dea." is added to 
his name.

Cornwall, Canada, Oct. 2, 1836; married Mary Waterbury, 
born in Nova Scotia. Benjamin was a Tory. He went with 
his parents to Vermont and settled in Arlington during the 
early settlement of that town. At a convention of delegates 
at a meeting held in Washington, \'t., on the 15th day of 
June, 1777, the town of Arlington was not represented. 
They had suffered much from New York, and it would have 
been difficult to specify wherein the king had harmed them. 
The king had given them their farms at a nominal price, and 
they did not think it right to rebel against a king who had 
done them no harm. Perhaps one-half of the people were on 
either side. The British army of more than seven thousand 
were on their way from the north and were creating alarm. 
Samuel Adams, about this time, or a little later, formed a 
company of Tories gathered from Arlington, Manchester, 
Sangate and from some of the other places for the purpose 
of co-operating with Burgoyne's army. Their place of ren- 
dezvous was at Abiel Hawley's tavern, which was, strange as 
it may appear, used by the patriots for a similar purpose. 
The settlers were soon startled by the abduction of Phineas 



194 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

Hurd, son-in-law of John Hawley, of Arlington. Hurd was 
a Loyalist and owned one of the best farms in Arlington. 
On a certain occasion, he, with a company, including Benja- 
min Eastman, of Arlington, went to Sangate, an adjoining 
town, and persuaded the inhabitants to deliver up their 
arms, that they might be in no condition to fight. The 
arms were eventually used against them by the Tories. For 
this Eastman was arrested and reported to General Lincoln. 
Eastman took the oath of allegiance and was released. It is 
said by his descendants that he fought at Saratoga in the 
British army, and was taken prisoner, and after his release, he, 
with his brother, Amherst, traveled through the woods to 
Canada, and settled in Cornwall. He paid his brothers a 
visit in Herkimer county, N. Y., and urged without success 
to have one of them settle in Cornwall near him. He 
became very wealthy, and offered his brother a fine farm if 
he would remove to Canada. He had a family of nineteen 
children.

" Deed From Hezekiah his son Recorded 
Sept 5th 17S2 in ye 4th Book folio 523." 

254. Joseph Eastman- (Joseph*, Peter^, Joseph^ Roger'), 
born in Connecticut in 1756 ; died in Marshall, N. Y., in 
March, 1844 ; married ist, Hannah Martin Warner, born in 
Connecticut, and died about 1S32 ; married 2d, widow Eliza- 
beth Paddock, who survived him a few years. He removed 
from Connecticut about 1784, to Brothers-town, now Mar- 
.shall, N. Y. Here he purchased of the Government one 
hundred and forty-four acres of land at fifty cents per acre. 
He built a log house and cleared up his land and burned coal 
and paid for his land from the proceeds. The name of 
Joseph Eastman, Jr., appears on the Revolutionary rolls of 
Connecticut in a list of men from Ashford, who marched for 



JOSEPH EASTMAN', OF CONNECTICUT. 20I 

the relief of Boston in the Lexington alarm, in April, 1775 ; 
was in service sixteen days. Joseph and his wives lie in a 
small plot of ground taken off his home farm, about two 
miles from the village of Water\dlle, N. Y. He lived to be 
loved and respected by all with whom he came in contact. 

The following story is told by his daughter, Saphronia, 
who is living in Canandaigua, N. Y., at the age of ninety- 
four (1900) : 

At the time Danbury, Conn., was burnt, her grandfather 
lived a few miles north of that place, and he, with his three 
sons, Nathaniel, Joseph, and Hezekiah, were called out with 
the militia to repel or capture the " Red Coats," who had 
succeeded in burning Danbury. A Tory family lived nearly 
opposite Joseph's house, and they opened their house 
and made preparations to welcome the British when 
they came ; but not so with the Eastman's. Abram Daton, 
the youngest, was sick at home with his mother, who, fearing 
harm, saddled the family horse, hitched him to the back door, 
put up some provisions and things she would need, intending 
to get the sick boy on to the horse and start for the hills 
as soon as the" Red Coats " came in sight. Soon she saw a 
single horseman coming, who informed her the raiders had 
been captured and there was no more danger from them. 
The Tory family across the way shut their doors, closed 
their windows and were seen no more that day. Saphronia 
says her father was in the Revolutionary war three years, 
but no record of it is in the archives of Connecticut. She 
says also that he was a pensioner.

* The compiler had in his possession for several years the record of 
John and Peter Eastman, and searched all that time to find some of 
their descendants who could name their father and mother. Finally he 
found one who said their parents were Joseph and Phebe Hendricks, 
and lived in Marshall, X. Y. Mrs. Saphrouia Galpin, now over ninety 
years of age, says there were no such children in Joseph's family, but 
when the compiler obtains records from parties corroborative of other 
records he has, he is bound to believe there were such children. Miss 
Sands, of Meriden, Conn., bad in her possession for a long time the 

name of Joseph's wife as Phebe Hend (the balance of the name 

torn off the records), and she supposed her name was Hendricks, 
because there were families by that name in Connecticut where Joseph 
lived, and one of the descendants of John (255) wrote the name in 
full, which was the first time we had her name spelled in full. John 
and Peter never lived in Marshall, N. Y.

Ward, of Harleston and Homersfield, Suffolk, Eng., Sir Roger 
Greenville, Edmund Sherman, of Dedham, Eng., the ancestor 
of the famous Sherman family of America. Paul Wellman

The regiment fought at Germantown, where it suffered some 
loss ; wintered at Valley Forge, iJTT-ji, and June 26, 1778, 
he was engaged in the battle of Monmouth, and during the 
summer was encamped at White Plains, N. Y. They win- 
tered (1778-79) at Reading, Conn., and during the next sum- 
mer of 1779, served on the east side of the Hudson. The 
regiment went into winter quarters, 1779-80, at Morristown 
Huts, where he was discharged Jan. 10, 1780, his term of 
enlistment having expired. Paul was a pensioner. In 1798— 
1800 he removed to Cairo, Oneida county, N. Y., leaving 
his son Hezekiah bound out, and it is said he left also a 
daughter Phebe bound out, taking all his other children with 
him. In the autumn of 18 10, he removed to Paris, Oneida 
county, N. Y., and later removed to Wolcott. In the fall of 
1820, his wife died and he married 3d, Mrs. Mary Thayer.

son with his wife, removed to Mount Morris, Livingston 
county, N. Y., where his 3d wife soon died and he returned

town, and a prominent citizen, enjoying the respect and 
good-will of his townsmen, and all who knew him bear testi- 
mony to his uprightness of character. For more than forty 
years he was a member of the Congregational church. His 
wife when quite young rode from her home in Rockingham 
county to Salisbury on a pillion with her uncle. She was 
one of a number of young girls who discovered the lifeless 
body of an infant under a loose floor in a building in South 
Hampton, N. H., connected with a schoolhouse where Ruth 
Blay was teaching. She was then about five years of age. 
Miss Blay was arrested, tried and convicted for concealing 
the death of an infant child. She was executed in Dec, 
1768. The sheriff who executed her was Thomas Parker.

schoolmates, in consequence of which Miss Blay was exposed,

life, dwelling upon it with much sadness.

married Margaret ; died there in April, 1634. His 

widow married 2d, about 1635, Dea. William Godfry, of

Thomas, the eldest, born in England, baptized Nov. 20, 
1 63 1, married, Nov. 2, 1657, Sarah Brewer. He died Jan.

importance to those afflicted with that sullen disease, the 
mumps, to which hundreds have testified. The secret has 
been in the possession of certain members of the family to 
this time. In the spring of 1791 he settled in Bow, N. H.,

Vt., and prepared for college in the academy at Middlebury, 
after which he entered the college at that place, being grad- 
uated in 1829. In 1880, his Alma Mater conferred upon 
him the degree of D. D., and about the same time he received 
the degree of S. T. D., from Trinity College, at Hartford, 
Conn. At Marblehead, Mass., he was ordained in 1834 to 
the priesthood, the impressive ceremony being performed in 
St. Michael's church by the Rt. Rev. Mr. Grisvvold, at that 
time bishop of the New England states, excepting Rhode 
Island. Dr. Eastman served as rector in churches of Massa- 
chusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New York, Vermont, Kansas, 
and Michigan, as well as in Canada. In politics he was a 
Democrat, with Prohibition sympathies. About fifty years 
ago he became a member of the Masonic order, belonging to 
the Commandery at Montpelier, Vt., and filled the position 
of Grand Prelate of the Grand Commandery of Vermont, for 
a period of two years. He took the Commandery degree at 
Saratoga, N. Y. He had also taken the fourteen degrees of 
the Scottish Rite Masonry, being a member of the Lodge of 
Perfection. For a number of years he held fraternal rela- 
tions with the I. O. O. F. In 1884, he removed to Michi- 
gan and became pastor of the Holy Trinity Mission, at Ben- 
ton Harbor, there being no church edifice there at that time. 
Through his efforts funds were secured, and a comfortable 
brick church was erected, and he remained its pastor until 
June, 1 89 1, when he retired from the ministry, after having 
spent fifty-seven years in pastoral work. Dr. Eastman went 
to pay a visit to his native place in 1891, after giving up 
active work in the ministry, and while there he suffered a 
slight stroke of paralysis, and was for some time quite ill. 
He returned home as soon as able to travel. In June, 1895, 
he suffered another shock of paralysis, from which he never 
recovered. The following September he fell and broke his 
ankle, which was a severe shock to his enfeebled constitution.

He recovered somewhat from the accident, and was able to 
sit around the house most of the time until about a week

JOHN EASTMAN'', OF EAST CONCORD, N. H. 3O9 

461. John Eastman* (John', Joseph", Ebenezer', Phihp-, 
Roger'), born in East Concord, N. H., Sept. 3, 1791 ; died 
March 4, 1S58 ; married in Canterbury, N. H., by Rev. 
William Patrick, Dec. 30, 1823, Dorothy DeForrest, born in 
Canterbury, N. H., May 30, 1796, died in East Concord, 
July 8, 1836; 2d, Lucinda Buswell, who survived him and 
married Deacon James Carlton. Dorothy DeForrest was a 
perfect blonde. She was toq pretty, her husband said, to be 
smoked up over a fireplace, and so the first cooking-stove 
came to East Concord. She was, however, a very domestic 
woman, a great economist, and tireless worker. Mr. East- 
man was a man of extensive business. He inherited his 
father's large and fertile farm, and also manufactured plaster, 
and ran a grist and bark mill besides. The old home, just 
across the track at East Concord railroad station, is still 
standing. They were members of the Congregational church, 
and among its most generous supporters. In fact, it was so 
unusual a thing that none of them attended service, that it is 
said the family horse, one Sunday morning, not being called 
on as usual, broke from the pasture, took his accustomed 
place, and remained quietly during the service, and then 
trotted home. Mr. P2astman was the prime mover in the 
Sewall's Falls canal enterprise, and the failure of that project 
by the opening of the Boston & Montreal Railroad, swept 
away one half of his wealth. The old ditch is still to be seen 
west of the railroad track. His second wife. Miss Lucinda 
Buswell, of Windham, Vt., dispensed the most generous and 
dignified hospitality until a good old age.

SAMUEL EASTMAN', OF LANDAFF, X. H. 327 

495. Samuel Eastman'' (Simeon', Obadiah", Ebenezer^, 
Philip% Roger"), born in Landaff, N. H., Oct. i, 1789 ; died in 
Elkhorn, Wis., in 1858, of pneumonia; married May 11, 
1 83 1, Mary Pell, born Sept. 15, 1796, died Nov. 27, i860. 
When quite young Mr. Eastman went to Ohio, visited Cin- 
cinnati, Columbus, Urbana, and other cities. He contracted 
malaria, which nearly cost him his life. He was obliged 
to remain in Urbana nearly a year to recover his health, after 
which he went down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to 
Natchez, where he taught a large and successful school. 
Here he became converted, and was baptized in the " Father 
of Waters " and became a member of the Baptist church. 
He was soon afterward licensed to preach. From there he 
went to Philadelphia, where he studied theology with Dr. 
Stoughton, then eminent in the denomination, and pastor of 
the Samson-street church in Philadelphia. He received an 
appointment from the Foreign Missions to preach in Missis- 
sippi and Louisiana, and was for a time very successful, but 
was stricken down with yellow fever, and after partial re- 
covery, with congestion and bilious fever, in which he was 
quite given up to die, he said, "After I had familiarly 
shaken hands with death, I was suffered to crawl up a few 
steps from the borders of the grave among the living." Then 
fever and ague took hold of him, and he in desperation barely 
escaped from the country with his life. After recruiting 
somewhat he became pastor of a Baptist church in Cincin- 
nati, O., where he spent three years of great pleasure and 
prosperity, but ill health coming upon him again he was 
obliged to resign his charge. Then he spent a year at the 
mineral springs in Harrodsburg, Ky. From there he went to 
New York city, where he planted the Stanton-street church, 
since become one of the largest and most flourishing churches 
in the city. There he remained several years, when again, 
on account of failing health, he returned to his native town 



328 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

with the intention of spending the remainder of his life there. 
He built a pleasant home on a part of his father's farm, and 
spent a few years in gardening and farming in a small way. 
After preaching in Landaff and adjoining towns, and as his 
health improved, held pastorates in Haverhill and Meredith, 
N. H., and in Rutland and Groton, Vt. In 1S44 he removed 
to Wisconsin, and died there. He was highly esteemed as a 
preacher ; was a fine scholar for the times ; made special study 
of French, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, and was well versed in 
medical science, and had a remarkable retentive memory, 
being able to repeat page after page from his favorite authors.

FANNY EASTMAN", OF LANDAFF, N. H. 329 

born early felt attracted to the ministry, and joined the 
Methodist church at i8 years of age. In order to test his 
convictions, he preached one year at his own expense ; his 
labors proving successful, he joined, in 1812, the Methodist 
Conference. From that time until 1850, he gave himself 
up to his life work, filling, in thirty-eight years of ministerial 
duty, many important pulpits in New England. He preached 
in Portland, Me., in E.xeter, N. H., and in Providence, R. I. 
He was for four years presiding elder in the New Hampshire 
district. In Massachusetts, he preached in many cities. 
After his regular labors as a pastor had ceased, he continued 
frequently to occupy the pulpit until 1863, closing his minis- 
terial career where he began it, fifty-two years before. As a 
pulpit orator he had marked ability ; a man of dignity and of 
noble stature, fine voice, clear thought, and impressive utter- 
ance. In business affairs he was a model of punctuality and 
good faith. The soul of honor himself, it grieved him much 
to hear of improvidence, of business dishonor, or even of 
apparent disregard of pecuniary obligations, in any one bear- 
ing the Christian name. By strict economy he was able 
often to fill out from his own limited means, the inadequate 
salaries so common in his time. During all his career, he 
contributed to'the charities of his church, and never, even in 
his old age, received any aid from them. A stalwart and 
brave religious teacher, he belonged to that heroic age of the 
New England Methodist church, and was prominent among 
the moral heroes of his day. ]\Ir. Sanborn married 2d, June

336 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

K. received his education first at the town school of Lou- 
don, and afterwards attended the high school at Concord for 
several winters. At the age of seventeen he served an 
apprenticeship of one year in the bakery of Horn & Robert- 
son, of Concord. He then went to Limerick, Maine, and 
spent two years learning the trade of tanner and currier. 
At twenty he went to Conway and built a tannery. In 
1816, he returned to Loudon, and on Dec. 8, 18 16, married 
Rhoda Messer, daughter of John and Olive (Ladd) Messer. 
She was born at Salem, N. H., Aug. 18, 1797. They went 
at once to Conway and in two years moved into the house 
which was their home for fifty-four years and where all of 
their children were born. 

The house is located on the principal street of the village, 
nearly opposite the church. It is a large two-story white 
structure, with green blinds, surrounded by large beautiful 
trees. There were ten acres of land about the house, most 
of which was in the rear, extending towards the Swift and 
Saco rivers. The view from the back of the house was 
superb, the mountains and intervales of Conway first com- 
ing into view, and in the distance the White mountains. In 
addition to the ten acre garden about the house Mr. East- 
man had a good farm, about fifty acres, on the intervale, 
which was always highly cultivated. 

He continued in the tannery business, to which he added 
shoemaking and harness making until about the year 1S35, 
when he opened a general merchandise store, and continued 
in the trade for a number of years. He built a paper mill, 
which, after running two weeks, burned, when he built a 
second and ran the business for many years. He was 
deputy sheriff for nine years ; he represented the town of 
Conway in the legislature for two terms, beginning 1842, 
being elected on the Democratic ticket. In June, 1842, he 
introduced and had passed a bill to incorporate the " South 
Conway Seminary," which was established soon after. This 



WILLIAM KIMBALL EASTMAN", OF LOUDON, N. H. 337 

institution became quite celebrated, and educated many who 
afterwards became quite distinguished. The first principal 
was a Mr. Walsh, who was for some time interpreter to Napo- 
leon. 

Mr. Eastman also held many other positions of honor and 
trust, such as lieutenant in the militia, selectman, juryman, 
coroner, and was several times delegate from Carroll county 
to the Democratic state convention. 

Many anecdotes are related of the married life of Mr. and 
Mrs. Eastman, among which was an eventful trip to Con- 
cord, in June, 1825, to meet General LaFayette. Another 
was the terrible catastrophe to the Willey family, Mr. East- 
man being the first man on the ground after it occurred. 

On May 14, 1870, Mrs. Eastman died, and ten years later 
Mr. Eastman sold his estate in Conway, and moved to Min- 
neapolis, where he made his home with his son, Haskett D. 
Eastman. On Oct. 18, 1887, Mr. Eastman died. 

In the Minneapolis Saturday Evening Spectator of Oct. 
22, 1887, appeared the followed article, written by the 
talented Viola F. Miner : 

" A PATRIARCH DEPARTED. 

" In the death of the venerable William K. Eastman, in his 
ninety-fourth year, not only the relatives and intimate friends 
of the deceased, but all who were so fortunate as to know 
him, have sustained a deep loss. And yet, dearly as he was 
beloved, his death was singularly free from those scenes of 
gloom and of anguish which nearly always shroud the portal 
of the tomb. He, rather, seemed to go up the shining way, 
and there remain behind him some rays of the glorious light 
into which he has entered. 

"Mr. Eastman's birthplace was Loudon, N. H., but he 
belonged to the old family of Concord Eastmans, well known 
in New England for their high social position and respecta- 
bility. His boyhood and youth were spent in Concord, but 



338 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

after he married Miss Rhoda Messer, he settled in Conway, 
N. H., where the greater part of his long and useful life was 
passed. Among Mr. Eastman's earlier business enterprises 
were the carrying on of a large tannery and a boot and shoe 
factory. Later, he built two paper mills and conducted a 
flourishing business for many years. During all this time, 
his industry and sobriety doubtless contributed to build up 
those lasting qualities of mind and body which so eminently 
distinguished him in his 'green old age.' 

" Besides attending to his own private affairs with commend- 
able zeal, Mr. Eastman was frequently called upon by his 
fellow citizens to occupy many public positions of trust and 
honor. For several years he was a respected member of the 
legislature of his native state. He was an old-time Demo- 
crat, and clung to his early predilections up to his latest day. 
When Cleveland was elected, the old gentleman sat down 
and wrote him a letter of congratulation, which the President 
honored with a personal reply from his own hand. He would 
have paid his respects to President and Mrs. Cleveland during 
their recent visit to our city, had his strength permitted. 

Twenty years ago Mr. Eastman and wife happily cele- 
brated their golden wedding at the old home in Conway. At 
the same time he united with the Methodist church of that 
place, though before his death he was led to accept the 
Swedenborgian faith. But he never forgot the old church, 
and only a few days ago sent the officers a check for a thou- 
sand dollars. And only the other day, also, he sent in his 
seventy-third annual subscription to the A^ezv Hampsliirc 
Patriot. 

" A few years after the death of his wife became to Minne- 
apolis in order to be with his children, all of whom had 
gradually established homes in this city, principally on the 
East Side and Nicollet Island, John W. Eastman coming 
first intheyear of '54. He had four sons and four daughters : 
Haskett D., John W., William W., Mrs. Annette Thompson 



WILLIAM KIMBALL EASTMAN", OF LOUDON, N. H. 339 

(deceased), Mrs. D. A. Secombe, Mrs. C. C. Eastman, Mrs. 
John DeLaittre, and George H. Eastman. 

" Although an old gentleman when he came to Minneapo- 
lis, Mr. Eastman has, nevertheless, taken a lively interest in 
the affairs of the city, and has made a host of devoted 
friends. His vigorous health and temperate habits preserved 
his mental and physical forces to a wonderful degree, and 
enabled him to pass his old age in comfort and happiness. 
He had that rare faculty of passing through life without 
worrying. In company he was always genial and entertain- 
ing, one of those choice spirits who help to make life worth 
living. One of his grandsons. Dr. Arthur Eastman, of St. 
Paul, had a photograph taken a few months ago in which 
four generations were represented. 

" For some weeks past Mr. Eastman suffered a good deal 
of pain. There was no disease — there was a general break- 
ing down of the tissues as a result of old age ; but his mind 
was perfectly bright and clear to the last, and he often 
expressed himself as contentedly ' waiting for the Master to 
call.' At the last, all was painless, and he sweetly sank to 
sleep like a tired child — fitting end of a well-spent life. 

" John W. Eastman left for the East, Wednesday night, 
and accompanied the remains to the old home at Conway, 
where the friends of other days will help lay them to rest 
amid the scenes of his youth and manhood. When another 
spring smiles upon the New England hills, his grave will be 
green, but we know that 

" Dust thou art, to dust returnest, 
Was not spoken of the soul."

340 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

The following obituar}' notice was printed in the Pioneer 
Press, of March 2, 1882, on the death of Mrs. Charles M. 
Thompson : 

"END OF A NOBLE LIFE. 

" In the death of Mrs. Charles M. Thompson, the daughter 
of Mr. W. K. Eastman, and sister of John, Haskett, William 
and George Eastman, and of Mrs. David Secombe, Mrs. John 
DeLaittre, and Mrs. Caroline Eastman, and the foster mother 
of Mrs. George B. Eustis, of this city, the Pioneer Press is 
compelled to record the sorrowful ending of a truly noble 
life. Mrs. Thompson was one of those lovely characters 
whom we too rarely meet, combining in her large and gener- 
ous nature the qualities of a devoted daughter, a faithful 
wife, an affectionate sister, a self-sacrificing mother, a loyal 
friend, and in every relation of life a refined and accomplished 
woman. Her death is the first to break the ranks of the 
children of this large and attached family, whose father is 
still among them at the ripe age of eighty-eight years, and 
who are inconsolable over their terrible loss. The close 
heart-ties that will be broken by the death of this lovely 
woman are many, and are included in a large circle of devoted 
friends who knew her but to love her."

Eastman was a man who was universally esteemed ; always 
genial and social and made many warm personal friends who

Lovell. The brick he made himself at the old brick yard 
just above the center of the town. This house is now stand- 
ing on Eastman Hill, so named for him, has sheltered four 
generations of this family, and with its substantial founda-

Sept. 22, 1882 ; she was daughter of Lieut. Stephen and 
Abigail Dresser. Mr. Eastman was a farmer, land surveyor 
and justice of the peace. He had held various town offices, 
and his continued services as town clerk from 1834 to 1842, 
have been of great value to many, as it was through his 
efforts that the town records contain so complete a list of 
the births and marriages and deaths of its inhabitants. Mr. 
and Mrs. Eastman did not know what it was to be a father 
and mother, but their love for children was so great that they 
adopted the following.

visitor, and as there was no other Nathaniel Rix, sen., he 
must have been the father of Nathaniel Rix, of Littleton, 
though no record of his being a Mason can be found on the 
records of Stanstead Lodge, they being lost through the 
Morgan excitement in 1826.

386 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

TO THE P. W. A. 

BY EMMA LEORA KELLOGG. 

When a child I stood by the river side 
And threw pebbles into the stream, 

While I watched the circles spread far and wide, 
Till they touched the far shore, oh, joy supreme ; 

And the thought is so sweet to me to-day, 

The thought of that time and my childhood's play. 

But a sweeter thought has come to me, 

'Tis the thought of a circle of circles, our own, 

Spreading far and wide from sea to sea, 
From the sunny land to the frozen zone, 

A circles of circles like links in a chain, 

That calls for the best work of heart and brain ; 

Filling our souls with a noble desire 
For self-improvement, that we may rise 

By stepping-stones, yet higher and higher 
To loftier heights and fairer skies ; 

Gathering sheaves as we pass on our way. 

Freely bestowing them where'er we stray. 

There are many ways to do good unto all — 
Encouragement oft is more helpful than gold — 

In sharing their burdens, great or small. 

Forming true friendships that will ne'er grow cold. 

While hands clasp hands in the kindliest way 

And hearts are loving and true for aye. 

May this be our aim, as we journey along, 

To keep our lights burning like beacons so bright. 

That the sad will rejoice and will sing a glad song. 
And the lonely and weary come into the light ; 

Giving our aid unto all who come near, 

Filling their souls with glad hope and good cheer. 

And when the redeemed gather round God's throne 

On the earth made new and fair. 
In the beautiful city where sin is unknown — 

For Jesus our Savior reigns there — 
May our circle be found, an unbroken band. 
And dwell ever more in that beautiful land.

Joseph'', Roger"), born in Goshen Township, Orange county, 
N. Y., Sept. 2, 1778 ; died Aug. 4, 1856, and was buried in 
St. Ann's, Gainsboro, Lincoln county, Ontario, where a 
beautiful monument commemorates the historic fact that he 
was the father of the Presbyterian churches of the Niagara 
and Gore districts, and that he served his Master faithfully 
and with eminent success for more than half a century. He 
married ist, Nov. 21, 1800, Elizabeth Hopkins, daughter of 



406 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

Capt. Silas Hopkins of the British service, then living in 
Newark, N. J.; she died Oct. 9, 1844. He married 2d a 
widow Lowe, who died about 1856, when he married 3d a 
widow Hinton, who died Jan. 22, 1879. ^^- Eastman was 
converted when fourteen years old ; attended North Salem 
Seminary ; studied theology with the Rev. Mr. Lewis, of 
North Stamford, Conn., and later with Dr. Benedict, of New 
Jersey. He was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of 
Morristown, N. J., March 18, 1800; preached at Elizabeth- 
town, Amity and Warwick. The oldest manuscript sermon 
of his extant bears date of Sept. 23, 1800. In May, iSoi, 
Mr. Eastman started with a company of friends under the 
leadership of Captain Hopkins, his father-in-law, for Canada 
West. After about four weeks' journey across the state of 
New York, they crossed the Niagara river to St. Cathernes, 
where Mr. Eastman preached his first sermon in Canada, the 
first Sunday in July, 1801. At that time there were, 
besides him, only two Presbyterian ministers in all L^pper 
Canada, Mr. Bethune at Williamstown, denary, and M. 
McDowell, Bay of Ouinte. Mr. Eastman first settled in 
Stamford and in June, 1802, moved on to a fifty acre farm 
of his own, near Beaver Dam, and soon after was ordained 
by the Presbytery, of Canandaigua, at Palmyra, N. Y., and 
soon after was authorized to solemnize marriages, and during 
the thirty years next ensuing, he married about three thous- 
and couples. At that time no other clergyman, except Mr. 
Addison of Niagara, a Church of England minister, was 
authorized to perform the marriage ceremony in the Niagara 
district. Between 1802 and 1S15, Mr. Eastman founded 
and mostly supplied the churches at Louth, Clinton, Gains- 
boro, Grimsby, Wellandport and Vienna, subsequently known 
as Mr. Eastman's seven churches. His labors, however, 
were not confined to these seven points, for he preached all 
over the Niagara peninsula from the Niagara river to 
beyond where Hamilton now stands. In 1S15, Mr. East- 



DANIEL WARD EASTMAN% OF GOSHEN, N. Y. 407 

man moved to Barton, where he Hved four years, and preached 
as far west as London and Long Point, as well as eastward 
to Louth and Stamford, traveling sometimes fifty miles to an 
appointment. During the war of i8 12-14, Mr. Eastman 
was living at Beaver Dam. Most of the peninsular battles 
were fought near his home, and in the skirmish of Beaver 
Dam, his house was pierced by so many bullets that the 
family was compelled to take refuge in the cellar. On that 
occasion an Indian ally of the American forces decamped 
with the minister's horse, but was compelled by the American 
commander to restore him. Mr. Eastman was a member of 
the first Presbytery, of York, about 1820; it was short lived, 
soon expiring, but was revived about 1830, when he again 
became a member, but owing to differences between the 
old country members and the American Presbyterians, res- 
pecting the Westminster confession and Psalmody, he with- 
drew from all connection in 1833, and in May of that year 
assisted in the organization of the Niagara Presbytery of 
Upper Canada, which went to pieces in the McKenzie rebel- 
lion of 1836-7, many of the American members then leav- 
ing the country. In 1840, Mr. Eastman went onto the 
synod of the Presbyterian church in Canada in connection 
with the church of Scotland, and after its disruption in 1844, 
he entered the Free church, and with his relations continued 
till the end of his ministry. In the latter part of his minis- 
try, he was greatly assisted by his son, William Osgood, who 
frequently filled his appointments, especially after his eye- 
sight began to fail him. This calamity began to threaten 
him about 1840, but he continued to preach till about 1850, 
when increasing blindness compelled him to desist from reg- 
ular labor and about 1856 became totally blind. To one of 
his active energetic habits and temperament, blindness was 
especially afflicting. It was a trial to which he found it hard 
to become reconciled, but he won the victory at last and was 
able to say, " Thy will be done." Mr. Eastman's first wife 



408 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

was the mother of ten children and she lived to see them all 
married and settled. The second wife was a most intelligent, 
amiable, and excellent woman, whose companionship and 
sympathy went far to render Mr. Eastman's blindness toler- 
able. She died of quick consumption. His third wife, also, 
was a most estimable woman ; though possessed of less edu- 
cation and refinement than the other wives, she proved a 
faithful and affectionate wife and her kindness and fidelity 
to Mr. Eastman commanded the respect of even those 
members of his family who opposed his third marriage. 
Rev. Mr. Eastman had a paralytic stroke about 1865, by 
which he was for a time completely deprived of the power of 
speech, having lost the memory of words, but regained 
language in about three months under the patient training of 
his daughter, Mrs. E. G. Emerson, of Rochester, N. Y., but 
his mind was never so vigorous as before. He died of 
apoplexy.

family in the way they should go, held the universal esteem 
of his fellow townsmen for his many acts of kindness to 
them, in accommodations in times of trouble, and general 
benevolence to the poor and destitute. He did not wait until 
his death and his children were old before assisting them, 
but distributed his patrimony with a just and even hand as 
they grew up and went for themselves or were married off, 
and the most beautiful and touching scenes of his life, 
reminding one of some ancient patriarch, was his going from 
home to home and spending weeks and months alternating 
between his sons and daughters, where he was ever received 
with open arms and loving hearts.

of Guilford, Conn., and Westmoreland, N. Y. Dr. Eastman 
was a well educated man, but where he studied medicine or 
with whom it is impossible at this late day to determine, but 
it is evident he received an academic education, as his 
granddaughter, Mrs. A. P. Sigourny, of Watertown, N. Y., 
distinctly remembers of seeing his diploma. Immediately 
after his marriage he settled in Adams, N. Y., where he 
practiced his chosen profession as long as he lived. It is 
thought he was the first physician permanently settled in that 
town. There is a tradition about a Dr. Green previous to 
that time, but how long he stayed, or where he came from, 
or where he went to is not known. Dr. Eastman was highly 
esteemed, had an extensive practice, and so much were his 
professional services sought after, that for the two or three 
years previous to his death, after he was unable to drive him- 
self, people from the surrounding country having severe 
cases of sickness in their families came in their carriages 
and took him to their homes where they kept him until the 
result was known. He was a surgeon in the war of 181 2-14, 
was at the battle of Sackett's Harbor.

died Feb. 22, 18 19, and in the fall of the same year he married 
2d, Lossey Maria Watkins, daughter of Abijah Watkins, of 
Monroe, Conn. She was born in Monroe in 1801, and died 
in New Fairfield, Jan. 4, 1889, aged 88 years. Hezekiah 
was bound out until he was twenty-one years of age, to 
William Leach, of the town now known as Sherman. Here 
Hezekiah stayed his full time, and perhaps more, as it is said 
Mr. Leach fooled the boy out of one year's time by pretend- 
ing he was born in 1790. Hezekiah was a fine singer in his 
day, and led the singing in the church in New Fairfield many 
years. He and his wife were both members of the Metho- 
dist church in New Fairfield, where he was a class leader. 
He was a farmer, and lived at first on the farm called the 
" David Wakeman " place, which place was the last on the 
road leading to Ball's pond from the part called "The Bogs." 
His wife's father lived on the next farm above, and this farm 
came into possession of Hezekiah through his wife. Later 
he bought the lower farm (where he lived first), so eventually 
owned them both. Hezekiah was drafted into the army in 
181 2, and assigned to Capt. Charles Parks' company, and 
was stationed at Bridgeport, Conn. Time in service from 
July 14 to Sept. 9, 1 8 14. He received at one time forty

ANNA QUACKENBUSH EASTMAN*. 449 

N. H., July 5, 1817, son of David and Olive (Kimball) Cross. 
Olive was the daughter of Thomas'', Thomas^, DanieH, 
Thomas^ Richard^ Richard', the emigrant. Judge Cross is 
a descendant of Thomas Cross, of Bradford, Mass., whose 
son, Abial Cross, was born there, but moved to and died in 
Salem, N. H. David Cross, son of Abial, and father of 
Judge Cross, was born in Salem, June 19, 1772, moved to 
Weare, N. H., and died there March 7, 1856. Judge Cross 
received his early education in the district schools of his native 
town. He taught school in 1834, and entered Pembroke 
Academy. He afterwards entered Hopkinton Academy. 
He was also a student at Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass., 
and in the fall of 1837 entered Dartmouth College, from 
which institution he was graduated in the regular course in 
1 84 1, with membership in the Phi Beta Kappa, and with an 
oration at commencement. Deciding on the profession of 
the law, he studied in the office of Willard & Raymond, in 
Troy, N. Y., with Sidney Bartlett, in Boston, and at the 
Harvard Law School, and in 1844, settled in Manchester, 
N. H. He was in the office of Hon. Daniel Clark for a 
short time, and in December of the same year he was admitted 
to the bar. In January, 1845, he began practice in Manches- 
ter, on the spot where he has ever since maintained an office. 
Judge Cross has been counsel for many corporations, among 
which are the following : Manchester Mills, Amoskeag Manu- 
facturing Company, Amory Manufacturing Company, First 
National Bank, and the Merrimack River Savings Bank. 
For many years he was counsel for the Boston & Maine 
Railroad, and conducted its business before the New Hamp- 
shire legislature, where contests with other railroads were 
numerous and bitterly fought. He has been associated with, 
as partners at various times, Hon. Elijah M. Topliff, 
Hon. Ira Allen Eastman, his father in law, Hon. Henry E. 
Burnham, and Hon. David A. Taggart, and no office in the 



4SO EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

State for the last forty years has had so many law students as 
his. In 1852 and 1853 he was city solicitor, and in 1848- 
49-56-76 and "JT , he was a member of the legislature from 
Manchester. In 1856 he was appointed judge of probate for 
Hillsborough County, which office he held until 1874. He 
was also United States pension agent for the district of New 
Hampshire from 1865 to 1872. During all the time he held 
these offices he continued in the practice of law. Judge 
Cross has held various offices in the financial institutions of 
the city. He has been one of the directors and vice-presi- 
dent of the First National Bank of Manchester since its 
organization in 1865, and later its president. Judge Cross 
is endowed with a sound physical constitution, strong and 
active mental powers, good judgment, and excellent common- 
sense. Add to these a cheerful temper, a cordial and engag- 
ing manner, and a genial good nature, and we have the secret 
of his success. In politics he has always been an ardent 
Republican, and was a delegate to the Baltimore convention 
of 1864 that nominated Lincoln and Johnson. Judge Cross 
is living to-day (1900), a rugged old gentleman of the old 
school.

TIMOTHY EASTMAN (729). 



TIMOTHY EASTMAN", OF EAST KINGSTON, N. H. 459 

729. Timothy Eastman*' (Timothy', Joseph-*, Joseph^, 
SamueP, Roger"), born in East Kingston, N. H., Jan. 17, 
179S ; died in Chicago, 111., Feb. 21, 1868 ; married ist, 
Oct. iS, 1825, Mary Jane Barker, born July 8, 1809, died 
April 7, 1853 ; married 2d, Sept. 14, 1859, her sister, widow 
Sophia Barker Reed, who died Feb. 24, 1870. He sold his 
interest in the Green Brook farm in East Kingston in 1826, 
which was to be divided between him and his sister Susan 
and her husband, Moses Morse. The same year he removed 
to Canaan, Me., taking his parents with him. In 1831 he 
removed the family to Harmony, Me., where his parents both 
died. Dr. Timothy Eastman studied medicine with Prof. 
Ingalls, of Boston, Mass., and graduated in 1S22, and began 
practice at Canaan, Me. In 1835 he removed to Ottawa 
county, Mich., where he established the town of Polktown, 
afterwards changed to Eastmanville. The country was then 
a wilderness, the modes of conveyance primitive. He went 
as far as Buffalo by the Erie Canal, then but completed, 
thence by sailing vessel to Detroit, and the balance of the 
way by stage and birch-bark canoes. His family was the 
second white family to settle there. He was the first clerk 
of Ottawa county, and for several years associate judge of 
the circuit. He was a member of the Constitutional Conven- 
tion in 1850, and from time to time filled many important 
official positions. His colloquial powers were unsurpassed, 
and meet him wherever you would, he was always the center 
of attraction, owing to his richly stored mind, and the happy 
faculty which he possessed of interesting others and express- 
ing himself. In 1858 he prepared a genealogical chart of 
the Eastman family, which was revised in 1894, and which 
has been a great help in the present work. It was a source 
of regret that he could not make it more complete. Dr. East- 
man spent the last years of his life in Chicago, where some 
of his children resided.

733. Timothy Corser Eastman*" (Josephs, Benjamin'*,

30, 1821 ; died suddenly at his fine country seat in Tarry- 
town, N. Y., in Oct., 1893; married Lucy Putney, and had 
several children. His mother was of strong will, and deter- 
mined to have her family brought up respectably, but to do 
this constant toil was necessary, and the older children were 
forced to work instead of attending school. But their educa- 
tion was not wholly neglected, for their mother taught a 
family fireside school in the long winter evenings, so that her 
children started out in the world with an average school 
education. Timothy learned the carpenter's trade of his 
father, but eager to push on and win the race in life he taught 



462 EASTMAN FAMILY OF AMERICA. 

school for a time, saving money to carry him through the 
High School at Meriden, N. H., where it is remembered he 
became a master on " figures." It was there he received 
his final outfit for the work he finally had to do, where 
his accuracy as his own accountant for many years, and 
his ability, became a man'el to those who dealt with him in his 
great and ever-growing business. He was able to buy a farm 
at the age of twenty-one, but New Hampshire was too small 
for him, and he soon moved to Wisconsin, returned home, 
and in a short time removed to Ohio and settled near Cleve- 
land, where he found a dairy farm much to his liking, rented 
it, and sent the milk to that city with a Irusty man to vend. 
He carried on the milk business for some years, and was very 
successful. Starting with fourteen cows, he soon owned one 
hundred and twenty-five. In buying and selling for his milk 
business, he found his way to another of greater moment, to 
which he gave the last forty years of his life. Mr. Eastman 
had a marvellous gift in judging cattle. He had few equals 
and no masters in his ability to tell the weight and worth of 
the endless herds which came under his eye. He began by 
bringing cattle in the earlier years from Ohio and Kentucky, 
and sending them to Albany, but the business grew on his 
hands and he found it was necessary to move to New York. 
He removed there in 1859, and laid the foundation of the 
" Eastman Company," of which he was always the head. In 
1875, he made up his mind, by careful judgment and thought, 
that fresh meat could be shipped to England in perfect con- 
dition, and there find a good market. Mr. Eastman saw his 
opportunity. His old colleagues in the trade said he could 
never carry out his plans, and were sure that the enterprise 
would wreck him. He was just as sure it could be done, and 
was ready to run the risk. He therefore undertook it at a 
great cost in money, but his courage and wisdom were 
rewarded, and Mr. Eastman's name must always stand as 
the first man who shipped fresh beef to England. In the 



SAMUEL EASTMAN", OF MT. VERNON, ME. 463 

latter years of his life he returned to the home of his youth 
in Croydon, bought some land near the river and built another 
home there, where he, with his family about him, and his 
horses, passed many happy days. He was probably the most 
wealthy man New Hampshire ever produced.

manhood, and then opened a store in Strong, Me., where he 
was in business a dozen years. He got his title from his 
rank in a state mihtia regiment. He was active in poHtics, 
and was one of the Republican party in Maine, in connection 
with Blaine, Hamlin, and others. He represented Franklin 
county in the state senate, being a member of that body with 
Hannibal Hamlin, with whom he maintained a life-long friend- 
ship. Colonel Eastman moved back to Phillips after a time, 
and lived on a farm there. Then he again went to Strong 
and resided until he went to Portland to live with his children. 
Colonel Eastman was a man universally esteemed. He pos- 
sessed fine traits of character, which always won for him the 
confidence and esteem of his fellow-citizens. Many were the 
calls upon him for information concerning the politics of the 
state half a century ago, and he was never at fault as to his 
statements. "A good man rounded out a long life, and left

JOSEPH EASTMAN^ OF UNION, N. H. 487 

Calef Oratorical Prize in Wesleyan University in 1862, was 
president of the Alumni Association of Wesleyan University 
from 1862 to 1866, was trustee of that institution from 1862 
to 1880, and lecturer on constitutional law in Wesleyan Uni- 
versity in 1878. Judge Calef had a large practice in the 
state and United States courts. Aside from his law business 
he was for some years president of the Middletown Gaslight 
Company, and a director in several financial institutions. He 
was a well-known Mason, having served as grand junior war- 
den of the grand lodge of the state of Connecticut. In Mid- 
dletown, where Judge Calef resided and spent so many years 
of his life, he held the respect of its citizens for the many 
sterling qualities that mark an upright man. He was a credit 
to himself and an honor to the institutions with which he was 
connected. Having practically retired from legal business, 
he accepted at the earnest solicitation of friends the position • 
of referee of bankruptcy under the new United States bank- 
ruptcy law. Judge Calef took a great deal of interest in the 
genealogy of the Eastman family, and spent a good deal of 
time and money in searching records, especially the old land 
and probate records at Exeter. Among the probate records 
was found the will of Thomas Eastman, whose wife was 
Abigail French, which establishes beyond a doubt his line of 
ancestry. He died Aug. 17, 1900.
