1851 Catalogue of Officers & Students of Waterville Liberal Institute, Waterville, Maine

Catalogue of the Officers and Students of Waterville Liberal Institute at Waterville, Maine, for the Academical Year Ending May 10, 1851. Printed in Waterville by Maxham and Wing....Mail Office, 1851

Bears the handwritten name of Charles Mathews on the back cover.  There's a middle initial but I'm not quite sure of it.  I didn't see the name Charles Mathews printed inside, but there are two students with the surname Mathews, Jesse R. Mathews and Clymena Mathews, each of Waterville.   I found a Charles K. Mathews, who might fit, in the Maine Census of 1850, but that Census doesn't give names of other household members, at least not online.

[Note of 29 May 2013: A reader explains that students Jesse R. Mathews and Clymena Mathews were the children of Simeon Mathews, who was instrumental in the formation of the Waterville Liberal Institute and was on its first board of trustees.  The reader speculated that the Charles Mathews whose name was handwritten on the book was the Charles K. Mathews who owned a stationery store at Waterville and was a nephew of Simeon Mathews.  Charles K. Mathews had a son named Charles W. Mathews.]

From online research, hopefully correct:

William Bernard Geoghegan (1865-1962) was born 31 August 1865 at Baltimore, Maryland, the son of Captain James A. and Rosalia Geoghegan of Baltimore.  

After stints at several churches in New England, Rev. Geoghegan settled at New Bedford, Massachusetts, where he worked as a clergyman and in the public health field.  In the 1910 and 1920 Censuses of New Bedford, wife Mary is enumerated with him, but he was living as a boarder without Mary in the 1930 Census of New Bedford.

According to a reader, Rev. Geoghegan was president of the Anti-Tuberculosis Society about 1938.  This reader has a copies of The Pine Crier, a mimeographed monthly newspaper published by the patients of the Sassaquin Sanatorium in New Bedford, Massachusetts, as part of their occupational therapy. The November 1938 issue contains an article about Rev. Geoghegan.

Colored Engraving of Champion, trotting sire owned by William Russell Grinnell of Cayuga County, New York

Engraving removed, at some point, from a book.  It appears to be handcolored, if my tiny microscope and its user are reliable.

It depicts the beautiful chestnut "Champion", owned by William Russell Grinnell of Levana in Cayuga County, New York.  See an 1897 article about Champion and some of his offspring, below, after a brief family history of William Russell Grinnell.

From online research, hopefully correct:

William Russell Grinnell was born 10 March 1819 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the son of Cornelius and Eliza Tallman (Russell) Grinnell.  His paternal grandparents were Captain Cornelius and Sylvia (Howland) Grinnell.  His maternal grandparents were Gilbert and Lydia (Tallman) Russell.

William married Charlotte Van Waert Irving on 8 June 1847 at Sunnyside, New York.  They raised at least three sons, from what I could glean online.  William Russell Grinnell died on 11 October 1888 at Aurora, New York; Charlotte died 16 March 1911.

From "The Horse in America, His Derivation, History and Development", published in 1897 by John H. Wallace, and available to read in digitized format online.

CHAMPION, the head of the Champion family, was a beautiful golden chestnut, sixteen hands high and without marks. He was bred by George Raynor, of Huntington, Long Island, and was foaled 1842. He was got by Almack, son of Mambrino, by Messenger; dam Spirit, by Engineer Second, son of Engineer, by Messenger, and sire of the famous Lady Suffolk. This is enough Messenger blood to please the most fastidious, but I think there was still more beyond the Engineer mare. When eighteen months old this colt showed phenomenal speed when led behind a sulky, and when three years old he was driven a full mile to harness in 3:05. a rate of speed which, at that time had never been equaled by a colt of that age. This made him ''champion" as a three-year old and William T. Porter named him Champion. After this performance Mr. John Sniffin, a merchant of Brooklyn, bought him, and in June, 1846, Mr.William R. Grinnell paid two thousand six hundred dollars for him and took him to Cayuga County, New York. After keeping Champion in that county till the close of the season of 1849, Mr. Grinnell concluded to sell the horse, as in all that time he had not covered one hundred mares. Mr. Grinnell complained that the farmers did not appreciate the horse, and many of them failed to pay for his services. But the fault was not all on the part of the farmers, for the price, to them, was very high, and he was a very uncertain foal getter.

In April, 1850, he was sent to New York and kept in the stable of Mr. Van Cott, on the Harlem road. He had been very badly handled, and Mr. Van Cott says he had been abused and illtreated, and when he came to his place he was as vicious and savage as a wild beast. The horse was kept there for sale, and in his daily exercise Mr. Van Cott says he could "show considerably better than 2:40 at any time." In 1851 he was sent over to Jersey and kept for public use at a fee of fifty dollars, by Samuel Taylor, at Newmarket, Metuchen, Boundbrook and Millstone. After making three or four seasons in the region of Boundbrook, in the year 1854, Mr. Grinnell, who still owned him, sold him to Mr. James Harkness, of St. Louis, Missouri, for about seven hundred and fifty dollars. On reaching St. Louis he proved to be as dangerous as ever, and no man dared to go into his stall, except Mr. Harkness and one assistant. In 1858 Mr. Harkness sold him to Thomas T. Smith, of Independence, Missouri, for one thousand dollars. He was there stolen by "jayhawkers" and taken to Leavenworth, Kansas, where he made two seasons and died 1864. Although he lived to be old, he left comparatively few colts, but a large proportion of that few were of excellent quality and many of them trotters.

CHAMPION (SCOBEY'S also known as King's Champion) was the best son of Grinnell's Champion, the son of Almack, and he came out of a mare called Bird, by Hedbird, son of Billy Duroc. He was foaled 1849, and was bred by Jesse M .Davis, then of Cayuga County, New York, and sold to David King, of Northville, New York, and by him in 1861 to Mr. Kellogg, of Battle Creek, Michigan. He was repurchased by Messrs. Backus. Scobey and Burlew in August, 1865, and soon became the property of Mr. C. Scobey and died his in May, 1874. It has been claimed this horse had speed and a record of 2:42 in 1857, but I have no data to determine how fast he was. From his own loins he put eight performers in the 2:30 list, two of which were phenomenally fast, although their records do not show it. Here I allude to Nettie Burlew and Sorrel Dapper, more generally known as "The Auburn Horse." The latter was a long, leggy, light chestnut, with a tremendous stride, and Hiram Woodruff did not hesitate to say he was a faster horse than Dexter. This Champion was a sire of excellent quality, although but a few of his progeny were developed. He left six sons that were the sires of forty-four trotters, and seven daughters that produced nine performers.

CHAMPION (GOODING'S)was a bright bay horse with black points, standing fifteen and three-quarter hands high. He was got by Scobey's Champion, dam the trotting mare Cynthia, by Bartlett's Turk, son of Weddle's imported Turk; grandam Fanny, by Scobey's Black Prince; great-grandam Bett, by Rockplanter, son of Duroc; great-great-grandam Kate, represented to be a Messenger mare. He was foaled 1853, and was bred by Almeron Ott, Cayuga County, New York, and traded to Mr. Stearns, from whom he passed to his late owners, T. W. and W. Gooding, Ontario County, New York. He died June, 1883. This horse was peddled about in Seneca County at a fee of five dollars, and had a very light patronage among the farmers. At last he was sold, with difficulty, at Canandaigua, for three hundred dollars to the Messrs. Gooding, and he brought them a handsome income as long as he lived. As his reputation as a sire of speed spread abroad, the quality of the mares brought to him improved, and among them were some with good trotting inheritance. Of his progeny, seventeen entered the 2:30 list, the fastest in 2:21, and they were good campaigners. It is a remarkable fact that only one of his sons proved himself a trotting sire, and he left but a single representative. On the female side of the house he was more successful, for six of his daughters produced seven performers.

CHARLEY B. was a bay horse, sixteen hands high, and was bred bv Charles Burlew, of Union Springs. New York. He was foaled 1869, aud was got by Scobey's Champion, son of Champion, by Almack, and proved himself the best son of his sire. He was out of a mare well known as "Old Jane" that was the dam of Myrtle with a record of 2:2o^. Several pedigrees have been provided for this mare that did not prove reliable, and they were all careful to endow her with plenty of Messenger blood. After searching for the facts through some years, the only version of it
that seemed to be worthy of credence showed that her sire was a horse called Magnum Bonum and there it ended. In his racing career this horse was started sometimes under the name of ''Lark.'' He has six heats to his credit in 2:30 and better, and a record of 2:25. From his own loins he has twenty-two trotters in the list. Considering the respectable number this horse shows in the 2:30 list, his great nervous energy, his vigorous constitution, and the number of years he was liberally patronized in the stud, it is a most notable fact that he has but two sons that are producers. Six of his daughters have produced. As a propagator of speed in the coming generations, this horse seems to be even a greater failure than his half-brother, Gooding's Champion.

NIGHT HAWK was a chestnut son of Grinnell's Champion. He was bred by John S. Van Kirk, of Newark, New Jersey, and his dam was by Sherman's Young Eclipse, son of American Eclipse. He was foaled 1855-6. In 1862 Mr. Van Kirk took him to Kalamazoo, Michigan, thence to Paw Paw in 1872, and in 1879 he was returned to Kalamazoo, owned by A. T. Tuthill. He was something of a trotter, and had a record of 2:36, under the name of Champion, when he was controlled by Mr. D. B. Hibbard, I think. He was shown at a State fair, held at Lansing, on a poor half-mile track, it is said, and trotted a mile in 2:314;, and for this performance he received a piece of plate from the society testifying to this fact. He has but two representatives in the 2:30 list, and three of his sons have five trotters to their credit, while six of his daughters have produced seven performers. He lived to an old age.

The merits and demerits of this family are very marked. The head of it seems to have possesssed great nerve force and an unmistakable instinct to trot, but he was irritable and vicious in his temper. Both these qualities — the desirable and the undesirable alike— he seems to have transmitted to his offspring. I have seen Gooding's Champion, and he had the temper and disposition of his grandsire. It appears that the original Champion was a shy breeder, and I am disposed to think he inherited this infirmity from his sire, Almack, and whether the inability of his sons and grandsons to get sires of trotters may be accounted for from this cause would be a very difficult question to answer. There are several others of this family, East and West, that have single representatives in the 2:30 list, that I have not enumerated, but from the statistics, as they now stand, it seems probable that, whatever is good in this family will be swallowed up in other tribes that are more prepotent and positive in the trotting instinct.

Photo of Young Siblings James Dalton Elliott & Miriam Velma Elliott of Lakeland, Florida

Circa 1900 photograph of siblings James Dalton Elliott and Miriam Velma Elliott of Lakeland, Florida.  The photograph was taken by the Ward Pender studio of Lakeland.

From online research, hopefully correct:

James Dalton Elliott and his sister Miriam Velma Elliott were the children of Dudley Dalton Elliott and wife Ida Isabelle (Lanier) Elliott, both born in Florida.  Their paternal grandparents were Irvin Hilton Elliott and his first wife Diana Hester (Beaman) Elliott.  Their maternal grandparents were James S. and Sarah Miriam (Turner) Lanier.

James Dalton Elliott was born 29 December 1896 at Kathleen, Florida.  In 1918, he married Eurie Alberta Hebb, who was born 13 December 1900, the daughter of Nicholas Harris Heb and wife Harriet Tallulah "Lula" (Folsom) Heb.

James and Eurie lived at Lakeland, Florida, where they raised several children.

Miriam Velma Elliott was born 30 December 1898.  I found a reference online where she died 27 May 1989 but I haven't found the actual source myself.  I didn't find a marriage for her.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

This post originally included another photograph, that of a young woman identified as Elsie Elliot, but Elsie is now featured in a post of her own.  She was the daughter of Llewellyn Ansel Elliot and Effie May (Roseburrough) Elliot of Ames, Iowa.  At age 43, Elsie married a Mr. Ramsey and moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

The photographs were found together but whether the siblings and Elsie are related, or if Elliott and Elliot are merely coincidental, I don't know.

1906 Photo of Amos Holt or Ames Holt, Providence, Rhode Island

Photograph identified in pencil on a dark background: "Sept. 18, 1906, Amos Holt, Providence, Rhode Island"  I'm positive his last name is Holt, and I believe his first name is Amos, though it could be Ames.

So far, I've been unsuccessful in further identifying the handsome fellow in the photograph.  I found possible Amos Holts in Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts and several other states.  I found an Ames Holt of New Hampshire, who was one of the founders of Holt Manufacturing Company, which eventually became Caterpillar Inc.; perhaps he or one of his brothers had a son Ames.

Perhaps he was attending college at Providence, Rhode Island.

If you have any suggestions on a Holt family that might include this Amos or Ames, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

CDV of Dr. Richard H. Thomas, possibly born Baltimore 1805

Carte de Visite of a gentleman identified on reverse as Dr. Richard H. Thomas, father of J. C T. - Allen

Researching online, I found a Dr. Richard H. Thomas who might fit.  

Assuming correct information, this Dr. Richard Henry Thomas was born 20 June 1805 in Baltimore, Maryland, to John Chew Thomas and Mary (Snowden) Thomas, and died at Baltimore on 15 January 1860.  
Dr. Thomas was married three times and had children with two of his wives.  With wife Martha (Carey) Thomas, he had a son James Carey Thomas, among others.  With wife Phebe (Clapp) Thomas or Deborah Phebe Hinsdale (Clapp) Thomas, he had a son Allen C. Thomas, among others.

First wife Martha (Carey) Thomas, mother of James Carey Thomas, was born 12 May 1805 in Baltimore, the daughter of James and Martha (Ellicott) Carey, who, according to an online source, married on horseback.  

Son, James Carey Thomas, was born 13 July 1833 at Baltimore, Maryland and died there on 8 November 1897.  He married Mary Whitall, who was born in Philadelphia in 1836, the daughter of John Mickle Whitall and Mary (Tatum) Whitall.  The couple had ten children, not all of whom survived to adulthood.

Dr. Thomas married Phebe Clapp or Deborah Phebe Hinsdale Clapp at Baltimore on 9 February 1842.  She was born 30 June 1818 in Dutchess County, New York, the daughter of John and Phebe (Hicks) Clapp.  

Allen C. Thomas, son of Dr. Richard Henry Thomas and Phebe (Clapp) Thomas, was born 26 December 1846 at Baltimore, Maryland.  He married Rebecca, who was born in Rhode Island about 1845; they had a son Edward and daughter Miriam.
