(I) Edward Hinman, immigrant ancestor, came from England and settled in Stratford, Connecticut, about 1650. Tradition says that he had belonged to the bodyguard of Charles I as sergeant-at-arms, and escaped from Cromwell's wrath to America. From the Dutch records at Albany it appears that he had some connection with Captain John Underhill, in offering their military services to Governor Stuyvesant, and tradition says that Sergeant Hinman disbanded his company at Stamford soon afterward, and settled in Stratford. He was a farmer and extensive land holder there, and was the first owner of the old tide mill between Stratford and what is now Bridgeport.

ELMORE. Elmore F. Elmore, a native of Troy, New York, is an only grandson of the late Franklin Elmore, and great-grandson of Asa Elmore, a pioneer settler of Clinton County, New York, who with other members of the family came originally from Westminster, New Hampshire. The first marriage solemnized in the town of Peru was that of Asa Elmore's brother Lot in 1788 to Mary, daughter of William Hay, a Scotchman, who was the first actual settler of the locality. Lot Elmore's son William married Charlotte, daughter of Judge Levi Platt. The Elmores were of Scottish ancestry.
(I) Asa Elmore, although he died at the age of fifty, had become on of the leading men of the county, having embarked in nearly every enterprise a new community engendered, land, lumber, general merchandise, banking, etc. His Buenos ability was only exceeded by his fine taste, as evinced by intrinsic beauty of the heirlooms now possessed by his posterity. He built for himself a home in Peru (now owned but not occupied by his descendants), considered one of the best examples of Colonial architecture in the county, and which at once became the centre of a dignified but cordial hospitality. Asa Elmore married Maria Hall, of Claremont, new Hampshire. he left six children: 1. Selucia, married Priscilla Gould, niece of Mrs. Henry R. Noble, of Essex. 2. Lewis. 3. Franklin. 4. Washington, who graduated from Middlebury College in its most flourishing days. 5. Maria, who was one of the first pupils of Madam Emma Willard in 1823, as were also her cousins, daughters of Lot Elmore, and 6. another daughter who married H. H. Everest. All of these children were educated in the best schools of the period.
(II) Franklin, son of Asa and Maria (Hall) Elmore, inherited his father's characteristics, managing with conspicuous success from the age of eighteen, when he became executor of the estate, the varied and important interest devolving upon him, and adding other, numerous and important, of his own. A man whose extensive legal knowledge and sound logic was widely sought and employed, and who commanded the respect and admiration of the principal attorney who became his friends; his financial ability and unquestioned integrity made him also the banker of the town; one whose interest in and familiarity with public matters would have drawn him prominently into the larger political arena, had not his delicate constitution compelled him to decline to enter it, and to only accept those positions of trust in local matters which did not require the strenuous activity and absences incident to the wider political horizon; withal a man of fine literary taste, wide information and courteous personality. An Episcopalian in his tenets, as was his father before him, there being no church of his own sect there, he became a trustee and large supporter of the congregational Church of
which his wife was an interested member. He was a Republican in politics from 1861.
Franklin Elmore married Harriet Woodbury Eaton, of the well-known Woodbury family, whose most conspicuous member was Levi Woodbury, justice of the United State Supreme Court, as well as secretary of the treasury, whose daughter married Montgomery Blair, of Washington, D. C. Harriet Woodbury Elmore died in September, 1904, leaving a name venerated by those of every degree and remembered for her philanthropy, literary taste and broad culture. Franklin and Harriet Woodbury (Eaton) Elmore were the parents of two children, Adelaide A. and Agnes Eaton, who were educated in the Emma Willard School in Troy, New York, and at the school of Catherine Dwight Lyman at Cambridge, Massachusetts. Adelaide A. married Robert B. Easton, of Boston, Massachusetts, and died March 27, 1872, leaving no children. She was one of the few founders with Dr. Cullis of the now flourishing "Consumptives Home of Boston." Agnes married (first) Bradford Culver Vaughan, once a prominent manufacturer of Troy, new York, and a lineal descendant of the family of Vaughan (now represented by the Earl of Lisbourne), possessed of the Manor of Trawscoed, since A. D. 1200, and traced to Colwyn ap Tango, founder of the fifth noble tribe of North Wales, Lord of Eifionydd. Two sons were born to them, one only, Elmore F. Elmore, surviving infancy, who legally assumed with his father's consent, his grandfather's name to perpetuate the same, Franklin Elmore having had no male issue. Mr. Vaughan died in 1890. Agnes Eaton married (second) Dr. Edgar Wadsworth Morehouse, who graduated from the Albany Medical College and subsequently studied abroad, including a year in London; a physician skilled and highly esteemed in Clinton County, New York; a member of the State Medical Association and the Rensselaer and Clinton County societies. He died in 1902.
(II) Elmore F. Elmore was born in Troy, New York. He was educated at St. Paul's School, Troy, and afterward with a private tutor in London. He graduated from Yale a Phi Beta Kappa man. Subsequently he graduated at the Columbia Law School and was admitted to the bar. For several years he was associated with the well-known firm of Van Santwood & Wellington, of Troy. In 2907 he became a member of a prominent law firm in Plattsburgh, New York, of which he is the survivor. He is a Republican in politics, an Episcopalian in church tenets, and a member of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity, of the Troy Club, and the Yale Club of New York City.
PARKER. The Parkers of Lowville, Lewis County, New York, descend from Abraham Martin Parker, of Connecticut, who grew up and received his education in that State. He went from Connecticut to Canada, where he remained two years, when he returned to the United States, settling on a farm near Munda, Livingston County, New York, where he passed the remainder of his days. He married Harriet Benton, of Connecticut, who bore him eight children: 1. Abraham Martin (see forward). 2. Eleutheria. 3. Harvey. 4. Monroe. 5. Abraham. 6. Mary. 7. Curtiss. 8.

He was educated in the common schools, grew up on the farm and became one of the prominent business and public men of the section. He was engaged in milling, lumbering, building and merchandising, having a general country store. He was examined for admission to the Union Army during the Civil War, but was declared physically unfit
for the life of a soldier. He was supervisor from 1861 to 1865, both inclusive; served as school trustee and in other public capacities. He was a most useful citizen and a most generous, charitable man. Few men of his means did more to relieve the sufferings of the poor and needy, all of which was done in a modest, quiet way. He literally did not let his "right hand know what his left hand was doing." He was a Republican in politics, and a member of the Presbyterian Church, of which he was a generous supporter. He was successful in business and bore an honorable name in his community.

In 1876 he settled in the town of Watson, Lewis County, where he engaged in lumbering and mercantile life. He also conducted farming operations in connection therewith. He remained in Watson until 1884, when he removed to Montague, where he was engaged in the same line of business until 1900, where he established a retail lumber business, later adding coal and wood. The lumber business is now conducted by his son, Glenn M. Parker, in company with Frank Moore, under the firm name of Parker & Moore. He admitted his son, Fay L. Parker, to the coal business, he being the junior member of L. B. Parker & Son. He has been successful in the business enterprises and stands high in the estimation of his business friends and his large circle of acquaintances. He has been a lifelong Republican, and in 1905 was elected clerk of Lewis County for a term of three years.

(The Putnam Line.)
this ancient English family traces their ancestry to the year 1199, and to Simon de Puttsham and Ralph de Pudeham, who had property in Stivecle, Bucks, England, 1217-18. The name is spelled in a variety of ways in the old records: Puttenham, Putenham, Putham, Puteham, later Putnham, Puttham, Puttman and Putnam. John Putnam, of Salem, Massachusetts was a descendant of the Putnams of Wingrave and Woughton, England. The coat-of-arms of the Salem family (which, by the way, John of Salem never used, though entitled to do so) is a "Silver stork surrounded by eight crosses, crosslet-fitchee and placed upon a black field." The crest is a red wolf's head. These arms have been borne by the Putnams from early times, and are described by Harvey in his "Visitation of Bucks," in 1566. The Putmans and Putnams of the Hudson and Mohawk valleys descend from Jan Poutman of Albany, and are of Dutch descent.
(I) John Putnam, of Aston Abbotts, county of bucks, England, was born about 1580, died in Salem village, now Danvers, Massachusetts, December 30, 1662. Family tradition states that he came to New England in 1634. In 1641 the town records of Salem make first mention of his name, "granted to John Putnam one hundred acres of land." he was a farmer and exceedingly well of for that early date. He wrote a fair hand, as deed on record shoe. In them he styles himself "yeoman" and "Husbandman." He was admitted to the church in 1647, his wife in 1641. He was made a freeman in 1647. The following account of his death was written in 1733 by his grandson Edward. "He ate his supper, went to prayer with his family and died before he went to sleep." He married in England, Priscilla (thought to be Priscilla Gould). Their eight children were all baptized at Aston Abbotts, England: 1. Elizabeth. 2. Thomas. 3. John. 4. Nathaniel (see forward). 5. Sara. 6. Phoebe. 7. John, baptized May 27, 1627, which is conclusive that the family were still in England at that date.
(II) Nathaniel, fourth child of John and Priscilla Putnam, was baptized at Aston Abbotts, England, October 11, 1619, died at Salem village, Massachusetts, July 23, 1700. He was a man of considerable landed property; his wife brought him seventy-five acres additional, and on this tract he built his house and established his home. Part of the property is still in the family and is locally known as the "Old Judge Putnam place." He was constable in 1656, deputy tot eh general court in 1 690-9, selectman, and always prominent in politics, religious and town affairs. He was a supporter of Rev. Samuel Parris in his witchcraft persecutions, although he not so bitter in his feelings, and lived to see the mistake he made. That he should have believed in witchcraft is not strange, for the belief was universal. The physicians and ministers that examined those pretended to be bewitched agreed that such was the case. Upham says that "out of every hundred in Salem ninety-nine believed that such was the fact." There are strong reasons to account for such belief and actions. Upham says, "Entire confidence was felt by all in his judgment, deservedly. But he was a strong religionist, a lifelong member of the church, and extremely strenuous and zealous in his ecclesiastical relations. He was getting to be an old man and Rev. Parris had wholly succeeded in obtaining for the time being possession of his feelings, sympathy and zeal in the management of the church and secured his full co-operation in the witchcraft prosecution." But the old man could not stand by and see the wife of his
old friend, France Nurse, sacrificed, and signed a paper with thirty-eight others in her behalf. He married, at Salem, Elizabeth Hutchinson, born August 20, and baptized at Arnold, England, August 30, 1629. She died, June 24, 1688. She was admitted to the Salem church wit her husband in 1648. She was the daughter of Richard and Alice (Bosworth) Hutchinson. Children: 1. Samuel 2. Nathaniel. 3. John. 4. Joseph. 5. Elizabeth, married Sergeant George flint. 6. Benjamin, see forward. 7. Mary, married John Tufts.
(III) Captain Benjamin Putnam, fifth son and sixth child of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Hutchinson) Putnam, was born in Salem village, Massachusetts, December 24, 1664, died there about 1715. He was a prominent man in Salem and held many town offices. He was always addressed as "Mr." until other titles were given. He was lieutenant and captain of the train band, 1706-11. He was chosen deacon of the church by every vote except his own. He seems to have kept out of the witchcraft trouble excepting signing the certificate of good character of Rebecca Nurse. July 25, 1713, Rev. Joseph Green mentions in his diary the fact of his calling on "Landlord" Putnam and that he was very sick and out of his head. The eldest living Putnam, was usually called :Landlord." He married, august 25, 1686, Elizabeth, widow of Thomas Putnam, but on the Salem records where the births of his children are recorded it states they were by his "wife Hanna." She died December 21, 1705. He married (second) July 1, 1706, Sarah Holton. Children, all by his first wife: 1. Josiah. 2. Nathaniel, see forward. 3. Tarrant. 4. Elizabeth. 5. Benjamin. 6. Stephen. 7. Daniel. 8. Israel. 9. Cornelius.

He married in Salem, June 4, 1709, Hannah Roberts, died 1763. Children: 1. Nathaniel. 2. Jacob, see forward. 3. Nathaniel (2). 4. Sarah. 5. Archelaus. 6. Ephraim. 7. Hannah. 8. Mehitable. 9. Kezia.
(V) Jacob, second son and child of Deacon Nathaniel (2) and Hannah (Roberts) Putnam, was born in Salem village, March 9, 1711, died in Wilton, New Hampshire, February 16, 1781. He was a pioneer of Salem, Canada, now Wilton, New Hampshire. He was there in 1738; for three years his wife was the only white woman in the town. during one winter, so deep were the snows and so distant her neighbors, that for six months she saw no one outside her immediate family. Jacob Putnam was a man of great industry and operated a saw mill in addition to his farming. He married, at Salem, Massachusetts, July, 1735, Susanna Harriman, of Danvers. He married (second) Susanna -------------, mentioned in his will, which was proved February 28, 1791. Children by first and second wives: 1. Sarah. 2. Nathaniel. 3. Philip. 4. Stephen. 5. Philip. 6. Joseph. 7. Mehitable. 8. Jacob. 9. Archelaus, see forward. 10. Caleb, died in the army in 1776, "before Ticonderoga." 11. Elizabeth. 12. Peter, also died in the army in 1776.
(VI) Archelaus, ninth child and seventh son of Jacob and Susanna (Styles) Putnam, was born in Wilton, New Hampshire, October 15, 1740. The sons of Jacob Putnam were all men of importance in the early settlement of Vermont, settling several towns and performing pioneer work that is remembered in the Green Mountain region by Putnam's Mill, Putnam's Creek, Putnam's Bridge, etc. Archelaus lived with his father in Wilton until the death of the latter, then selling out to Lieutenant Oliver Whiting, of Temple (1790), he removed to Andover, where he erected mills. From Andover he removed to Chester, Vermont, about 1800. Notwithstanding, he had brothers in the
Revolutionary War and was a relative of General Israel Putnam, he was one of the two inhabitants of Wilton who refused to sing the non-intercourse resolutions of April, 1776, and in 1780 he was fined "for not doing his turn in the war." He was strictly a non-combatant and not a Tory or a royal sympathizer. He married Mary Nichols, a "Mayflower" descendant, who bore him twelve children, all but the two youngest born in Wilton: 1. Archelaus, see forward. 2. Anna, married William Thompson, Jr. 3. Mary, married Abijah Allen. 4. Susanna, married Timothy Thompson. 5. Huldah, married Joseph Williams. 6.

He married and remained there until about 1828, when with his brother-in-law, Alvah Wood, he migrated to new York state and settled in Allegheny County at Whitesville, on the headwaters of the Genesee River, Cryders Creek. This country was then unsettled and covered with dense forests. He obtained a tract of land and cleared a farm, where he lived the remainder of his days.
