OLD MONUMENT FOUND -  The headstone found yesterday near the John Lentz place in Exchange street,  is believed to have been one which was brought to the marble yard located near the place years ago when the remains of Thomas Barden were removed from the Barden family cemetery and placed in the Bellona cemetery.

A new monument was erected in the Bellona cemetery and it is supposed that the old stone was taken to the marble yard. The records show that a man named Cogswell was in the monument business near the Lentz property in 1865 and it is believed that a marble or monument yard was conducted there many years previous to that.  Mr. Cogswell later became associated with W. G. Potter, who disposed of the business to Barden & Salladin, the present proprietors.

An interesting fact in connection with the finding of the stone is that it was a marker for the great, great uncle of George Barden, at present one of the proprietors of the monument works. - Geneva Times.


Cleveland's History of Yates County says: "Capt. Thomas Barden was killed on the 11th of June, 1813, by one John Decker, a blacksmith, of Potter Center, at or a little north of Old Castle, on his march from the lines of a company of cavalry with which he served in War of 1812. In the hurry and crowding of the march, the horse of Capt. Barden pressed and jostled Decker. Fearing that Decker might think it intentional, he rode back, dismounted, and while putting out his hand with an apology for the collision, Decker dealt him a violent blow under the left ear and felled him at his feet."

Geneva Daily Times              Saturday                    November 14, 1936             by Dianne Thomas 

Four Barden Farms Remain in Families Of Pioneers - The following history of the four Barden farms has been collected and prepared for the Geneva Daily Times by Miss Elsie Mead, the paper's correspondent in Hall.

Hall,   Nov. 14 - One hundred years ago, a resume of the Barden family whereabouts would have covered a territory, says tradition, equaling, length at least, of one of the famous Phelps and Gorham townships.

For from the Barden frontier on the north, they tell us, one could walk to Benton Center, about six miles, without stepping off of Barden land.  Even in case there should be exaggeration here, such as a few long steps, still the extent of this pervasive family would be brought up to par by those Bardens who had settled on beyond, that is, west of the Benton Center parallel. They circled round the Hall area, on the east, south and southwest, and to this day, on each end of the arch sees "Barden land." 

But although the Barden reunion, organized more than a half-century ago, draws 75 to 100 of the family annually, those who bear the original surname are not now the largest part of the gathering.  Likewise, many of the old "Barden farms" have passed into other hands, but four, each more than a century in the family, still remain in their profession, and on two of them, Barden descendants, have made their homes continuously to the present time. 

The year 1789 - being the same year in which George Washington was elected the first President of United States, and the next after Phelps and Gorham made their purchase, that year witnessed the appearance here of the family destined  to become so widespread and enduring. 

Strong and virile were the brothers, Thomas and Otis Barden, aged twenty-five and nineteen years, who tramped westward from their home in Attleboro, Massachusetts. They came from healthy, fighting stock, whether it was to fight nature in the rough, a mother country seemed despotic, savages or what not.

Thomas Barden, the elder brother, was at least the third in line to bear his name, his grandfather, Thomas Barden I, having come to Massachusetts from Plymouth, England, about 1720. The grandmother had been Elizabeth Tobet, and of their five children, Thomas 2nd, was the oldest. This Thomas 2nd won the hand of Susannah Riggs, niece of Gov. William Phipps, of Massachusetts, and already, when the Revolutionary War came on, they had several children. 

Did Thomas the Second get an "exemption", because of being a farmer, with a dependant family? Not at all !  Off to war went Thomas, also his father, and his two oldest sons, Thomas 3rd, and George; Otis, the next boy, stayed at home to help mother Susannah, with the farm and the younger children. 

The war claimed two of the soldiers, Thomas the First, who died fighting in the ranks, and George, his grandson. The Thomases 2nd & 3rd, came back to the farm, thirty miles from Boston, in Bristol County. But the younger Thomas had tasted adventure, and Otis was itching for it -thus, they started out for the 'promised land', as sighted by General Sullivan.

The Journey was made in late summer, a propitious season, as they left civilization behind, for it avoided the heavy snows that clogged new trails in winter, and to some extent, mitigated the mosquitoes and similar pests that infested the well wooded country of their desire. 


Made Trip in Record Time - What enthusiasm filled young Otis, as he challenged the world!  In the city of Hudson, gateway to the unknown, he prepared to make his memory immortal by an inscription.  Discerningly, he purchased a New Testament in which to preserve his memoranda. "Otis Barden, is my name" he wrote.

"English, is my nation, Attlelborough, was I born, and Christ is my salvation." 

Otis Barden, his book, "bought at Hudson. September 17, 1789"    There is another entry - " First arrived at Dr. Caleb Benton's saw mill , Sept 29th, 1789."

What a record the intervening twelve days would show!  But the wayfarers,  wasted no time in their two hundred mile trek from Hudson.  There were long stretches of solitary forest, marshes, streams to ford, perhaps a log house or two in a clearing, and a few little settlements, as at the infant Geneva, but extremely limited chances for hitch-hiking.  However, they did make what seems incredible speed to the place afterward known as  Slab Hollow (Pinckneyville, Woods Hole, Bellona), where the enterprising Dr. Caleb Benton, then of Hillsdale, N.Y. had set humming his sawmill. By astute dealings with Indians and whites alike, Dr. Benton now had interests in a large tract of land. Including half-ownership of Township Number Nine, Range One, and, it seems, 400 acres outright where his sawmill was located, in Township Eight, on the banks of the "Cushong" creek. The  young Bardens were well pleased to get work at once in the sawmill.

In their leisure, they did some exploring round the country, and thought they scarcely could have picked a more favorable locality for settlement, especially since they had first choice.  In an area of rolling, well-watered land, showing a variety of soil, and timber almost beyond description. Sugar maple, ash, oak, hickory, basswood three or four feet through, and other deciduous trees with white pine, grew in abundance.

Soon the brothers made purchases, Thomas selecting a site in the Number Nine Township of Range 1, (now in the town of Seneca) and Otis choosing a lot to the south and west of Thomas, Lot 50 of Township Eight, also of Range 1. This now is part of the Town of Benton, Yates County. The farms were corner-wise to each other, with one lot between, near enough to "change works," as they cleared the land for their future homes. 

They threw together a shelter, and lived mostly on "samp and milk," varied with,  "milk and samp." About this time, a mill for grinding, probably the first in western New York, was put in operation by the "Friends," Jemimah Wilkinson's followers, who had arrived at Seneca Lake a couple of years before: but Thomas and Otis Barden were independent of such devices. With a large round stone, in a hole in the top of a stump, they pounded and broke their corn into samp - and plenty of it! When working on the big trees, there was a halt after nearly every log was felled and trimmed, for refreshments. 


One of Early Weddings -  The clearing, the log house, a crop in, then the housewife! Even in this venture, the new land proved kind, Thomas' marriage was to Miss Olive Benton, daughter of Levi, or "Squire,'' Benton, called the "pioneer of the pioneers" in the township now bearing his name. Yet he had arrived less than a year earlier than this son-in-law.

Olive's marriage, Feb. 2, 1792, followed that of her sister Polly, "the first bride in the town of Benton," when "everybody in town came to the wedding." Meantime, Otis Barden had journeyed back home, returning with his brother,  James

But his heart had remained in the wilderness, for Elizabeth Parker, daughter of James Parker, of the "Friends Settlement," became Mrs. Otis Barden, in January, 1793. From Benton to "Hopeton," near Dresden, was a long way in those days to go courting, but Otis was equal to it. He had the house ready, of logs, twelve feet square, and in Geneva, for a total of 35 shillings, they purchased an adequate cooking equipment, consisting of a pot, teakettle, skillet, bowl, and a broken kettle (a bargain at four shillings). Good-bye to samp and milk!

Otis Barden, later, after building and rebuilding several times with logs, erected a large frame house still standing. It is solidly rectangular, with big high rooms, and an attic with half-moon windows. The location is on the road,  just east of and parallel to the Hall-Penn Yan highway, the farm now known as the Thomas Murphy place. Here the eleven  children of Otis and Elizabeth Barden grew up, all reaching adult life. Hence descendants were, and are, numerous, some not so far from the old neighborhood. Thus, through the youngest daughter, Lois Emmeline, who married Henry Harrison Gage, Mrs. Charles Robson of Hall, her sister, Miss Mary Gage of Bellona, and their brothers in Rochester, also Amsden Gage of Corning, who owns property and often summers in Bellona, may claim descent.

As to the older of the pioneer brothers, Thomas Barden 3rd, a brief review of the Barden farms still in the family possession will contain his history. In so far as it can now be obtained.


The Perry and William Barden Farm -  The "Perry Barden farm," of 100 acres, half way between Hall and Bellona. now the home of Mr. and Mrs. Seward N. Transue, retains its local name from the long ownership of Perry Barden, Mrs. Transue's father. It contains a part of the tract, on the southern border of Township Nine, selected by the pioneer Thomas for his farm, and here he chose magnificently. The present house and farm buildings, placed on the ridge well back from the highway, make a noteworthy picture from the road, but the attractiveness of the" location is not to be fully appreciated until  one has ascended the grade up the long drive, and turned to get the view over miles of country-side, with a glimpse of Seneca Lake, and the blue hills beyond that, and Lake Cayuga, Down by the roadside, is the "big elm", well over 100 feet tall in its 

prime, with a girth of twenty-two feet, four feet above the ground. Just across the road is the "David Beattle farm," on which the late Herbert Beattle lived and met his tragic death.

The part of Thomas Barden's holdings which has descended to Mr. and Mrs. Transue was on what was described as "the north part of Lot 46." (Township Number 9, Range 1); it was also at the northern end of Thomas' property, of which the southern edge, joined Range 8, as has been mentioned.

Caleb Benton, with his fellow schemer, John Livingston, had managed to get possession of all the No. 9 Township, and Thomas bought from them. It was because of an act of filial generosity that this portion at the north finally went to his younger brother, Sylvanus, Mrs. Transues grandfather.

The story runs thus: ten years after the migration of the two young men from Attleborough the mother and the father, now with three sons in the west, were moved to transfer their hearth, home and five unmarried progeny to the same place.  

Thomas, their eldest, accordingly donated land for a house and an adequate farm. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas the Second, and family, made the trip in the winter, and not like their sons, on foot or with knapsacks. Two huge ox-carts carried their household goods, each drawn by a pair of large New England oxen, with a toad-horse ahead of each team. Slowly they proceeded through the snow-filled wilderness over the meanest of roads, but in safety and at last, in March, 1799, they were welcomed by the sons, the unknown daughters-in-law, the wide-eyed grandchildren. 

While their log house at Thomas' was being built, they stayed with whose family had long since outgrown the original twelve foot cabin.

 Of Thomas Barden 2nd's five children who came at this time, two were sons - Sylvanus, twenty years old, George, the youngest of the family. The lattter, who became owner of the "George Barden place,'' will have his own story, shortly. Sylvanus stayed on with the old people, and in 1806, there is a deed from his father, giving him title to "the south half of the one hundred acres of land conveyed to the party of the first part by Thomas Barden, Jr.. known at north part of Lot No. 46, in Township No. 9. "   In 1808,  Sylvanus bought on more land, from William Smith, and from Seth Mapes, on the north. About 1639, in two lots he added 71 acres, across the road, to the east. 

Sylvanus Barden of Great Size - Sylvanus Barden, in common with the run of "Barden men," was of great size and 'strong as an ox". 

It to said he could lift up a barrel of cider and drink from the bung-hole, much as others would handle a jug, and that an interloper to his fields was tossed over the fence, with no more ado.  :)

The wife of this man of prowess was Martha, known as "Polly" Ferguson, and by her he had one son, Sylvanus Perry, born in 1820. When the boy was six years old, Sylvanus, Sr., died.  His widow, in course of time, married a Mr. Atwater, their children living with them on the farm during the youth of Sylvanus Perry (always called by his second name). The mother, Mrs. Atwater, made her home there until her death, surviving her second husband.  She had the privileges of age in later years, including her special cow, kept on the seventy acres across the road. 


In 1842 Perry Barden married Dorothy MacFarland of Portage, NY and they spent a long life together, affectionately known, far and wide, as "Perry and Dolly Barden". They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary and almost reached the sixtieth, reoccurrence of the date, at the old home. Of their children, Agnes, William and Addie, the youngest, or Mrs. Transue, survives. The older daughter married Isaac Ansley

Excellent Dairy Farm - William, Perry Barden's only son, was settled on the "east seventy one."  His wife was Miss Agnes Rippey, of Seneca. The "William Barden farm" proved excellent for dairying, and a creamery was operated in connection with it for a number of years. It also produced crops of fine apples. 

'Will'  Barden is listed as trustee of his school district, in 1882, and both Mr. and Mrs. Barden were always "in" everything around the community, especially musical events; for from the days of the "singing-school," in Bellona, and on, the voices of the Perry Barden family added much to every occasion. Big-hearted as he was large in stature, Will Barden had a cheerful word for everyone he met.

The house on the William Barden farm has rather an interesting history, especially to any who attended school in the "little red schoolhouse," just north, for the east end of it consists of that very building, which was sold to the highest bidder, Perry Barden, when the present school was built. The red schoolhouse was the second one in use in the district (now Number Five), but had become, by 1886, in considerable need of repair, so the following year was moved the half mile down the road, and transformed into dining-room and kitchen for the farm-house. In the woodwork may still be seen scars from the battle for education which was waged by so many intrepid youth within its walls. 

The heirs of William Barden, whose death in 1930 was followed by that of his wife within the past year, are Newton and George Barden, and a daughter Jennie, Mrs. Wilbur Severtnghaus.  George Barden, in business in Geneva, married Miss Catherine Scott, of Bellona.  Newton, whose wife was Miss Jennie Oughterson, of Billsboro, lives just north of Geneva, and has six children. Wiltord, Dorothy, Albert, James, Agnes and Robert. Mrs.Severtnghaus has three children, William. Jordan and Mary Ellen.  She is a teacher of music in Ithaca.

Although younger than the parent farm, up on the hill, nevertheless the William Barden farm has a family history of one hundred seven years, which is not insignificant  in our youthful and fast moving civilization.

Built Large Square House - To return to the Transue farm, so far as to knows, the log house built for the old people from Massachusetts sheltered the family until after Perry Barden's marriage, although if it did, it must have been an unusually well-built one... or else fixed up from time to time as it would have had to serve over fifty years.  Enough to say that Mr. and Mrs. Perry Barden went to housekeeping in a log house, on or near the same site. But after a few years of married life. Perry put his hand and his mind to it, and erected a large house, square, with a "wing," well fitted to its commanding position on the crest of the ridge. All the timber, largely hard pine, was taken from his own woods, then sent to Prattsburgh, 25 miles, to be sawed and planed. His  step-brother, one of the Atwater boys, was the carpenter, and took plenty of time, eighteen months, to build the house strong, true and well-finished. This is the present home of Mr. and Mrs. Transue. 

The keynote of the interior, as well as the exterior of the house, is a dignified simplicity. Boards of a width and thickness only to be procured from the virgin forest provide handsomely paneled doors, with window-casings and curtain cornices of richly plain design. Eighty years have passed since the family moved into-the new home, in 1856.

The large maple tree not far from the house, in the right foreground of the picture, owes its existence to "Dolly Barden," Perry's bride.  Soon after she came here to live, the little maple seedling in the garden was doomed to be pulled up and thrown away, but Dolly wanted to know why it couldn't be left a while longer, and her request was cheerfully granted.  So now the tree, nearly one hundred years old, is still offering its welcome shade.

In 1861, Perry Barden was elected trustee of the district school. Cash on hand when he took office, was 27 cents. However, expenses of the year, duly met, Included $30 for repairing the schoolhouse and buying a new stove. Wood, that year, cost $1.25 a cord, going up the next year to $3.20 a cord. During his term, Mr. Barden hired a new teacher, Miss Jane Simpson (afterward Mrs. Bristol, mother of E. L. Bristol of Hall). Miss Simpson taught the school, with marked success, for a number of years, having as high as 62 pupils. Her coming raised expenses slightly, however, as she requested an innovation, namely a wash basin and towel, for she averred that these articles had become an indispensable part of education. 

In 1886, Mr. Barden was one of the committee of five to examine the fitness of the red schoolhouse, with its stove in the middle and benches around the side. Much repairing was needed.  After a bit of stalling over the $1,200 needed for a new building, it was voted favorably, and the change made.

Presbyterian Church Members - Mr. and Mrs. Perry Barden were faithful supporters of the Presbyterian Church In Bellona. A silent testimony to the deed of a church pew, in the "First Presbyterian Congregation of Benton," in 1863.  This was in the "old" church, preceding the Memorial Presbyterian Church, where the family had worshipped since it was built. It was during Perry Barden's lifetime that the graves of the two preceding generations were transferred from the family plot in the corner of what os now the dooryard, to the Bellona Cemetery

The years that had intervened since the oldest was laid to rest, softening the rudeness of death, lent a passive interest, rather than shock, to the discovery of the old grandfather's neatly braided hair and shell comb.

Mr. and Mrs. Perry Barden were themselves separated five years by death. Mrs. Barden survived her husband, living until 1909, her 92nd year. She never lost her vivacity, and one of the "thrills" of her last years was the daring experience of an automobile ride with Dr. George Means, then practicing medicine at Bellona. 

Mr. and Mrs. Transue, whose names have been the ones connected with the farm during this generation, have no children of their own, but see the Barden name perpetuated to their line, through Newton Barden's sons, in Geneva. 

They have always been active in the church, the Grange at Hall, and in all civic and neighborhood matters. Mrs. Transue is a member of Seneca Chapter, D.A.R., at Geneva.

Cemetery Vandals Discovered - Bellona -

Charles Richie, the caretaker of the Bellona Cemetery, arrived upon the scene just in time recently to identify but not apprehend three children, aged about 8 or 9 years, who were just finishing a spree of vandalism.

They had turned over and dumped about 35 crocks and urns which had been filled with various flowering plants and vines, and destroyed the contents of most Other urns had their contents sheared off to the roots.

The trustees of the cemetery association investigated the damage done, which also affected most of them personally,  through damage to their family plots. 

The parents of the children were contacted and agreed to make restitution in full for the damages.

Honor Revolutionary War Soldier -   

BELLONA - At the Memorial Day observance at the Bellona Cemetery, Sunday, May 28, following the annual Memorial Day service at the Bellona Memorial Presbyterian Church, American Legion members of the Johnson-Costello Post Color Guard, unveiled a bronze marker, placed at the memorial stone of Thomas Barden II, who migrated to this area with his family about 1790, from Attleborough, Mass.

Frederick J. Egger, Co-chairman of Veterans Graves, explained that Thomas was born in 1735, being of the fourth generation of the Bardens in the U.S., descending from Richard Barden and Joan Fowle, who migrated to Boston in 1635. He lived in this area a short time, as he died in 1799.  

He was married to Susannah Riggs, daughter of Jonathon Riggs, Feb. 2, 1763, prior to the Revolutionary War. He was the father of 11 children.  His second child, Thomas III, was born on Feb. 24,1965 (newspaper typo error; s/b 1765).   He is also credited with having served in the Revolutionary War, and his grave will be marked at a later date to verify that service. 

Thomas Barden III, is also credited as having served as a Captain in a militia unit prior to the War of 1812, but his active service is not verified. According to Yates County History,  the third son of Thomas Barden II, named George,  is also listed as having served in the Revolutionary War. He was born in 1767 and died in 1783 at the age of 16, and it could be possible that he did serve in the war. Other children born to Thomas Barden II were: Susanna, Otis, Eleanor, James, Sylvanus, Milly, Eunice, Lois, and a second child, also named George, born in 1788.


Thomas Barden IV, who is also buried in the Bellona Cemetery, served in an Artillery unit in the War of 1812, and there are a number of the Bardens who served in the Civil War, and records indicate that a number of Barden descendants served in the wars that have taken place since that time.

Mr. Egger said that he searched to establish verification of military service and determine that the grave marker unveiled at the Bellona Cemetery the past Sunday, was. dedicated to the correct Thomas Barden.

Reward Offered in Grave Disturbance - By MAURICE DUMAS

BELLONA - A $1,500 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for digging up a gravesite in the Bellona Cemetery.

On Saturday, a cemetery caretaker found a coffin-shaped hole in front of the tombstone of Ruth Dorothy Grotheer, whose ashes were buried there after her death at age 71, in 1980. The urn was broken, and the hole left unfilled sometime between Thursday evening, Oct. 6 and the morning of Oct. 8.

The reward is being offered by two brothers, John and Cene Fontana, and their sister, Katharine Prendergast, all of Wabash Road, Geneva. Grotheer, of New York City, was a close friend of the Fontana family and considered an aunt. 

"At first you're shocked, and then you're angry," said Prendergast, who hopes the offer of a reward might help the investigation. "The family is very upset," said Yates County Sheriff's Inv. Jack Gleason. 'They're hoping this may induce someone to come forward with some information. Whether it will, we'll have to wait and see."

Gleason said he has leads to follow, and people to talk to, but made no mention of a possible arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's department at 536-4438.
