The Jaquiths: Family of Patriots



minutemanThe ancestors of the Jaquiths were French Huguenots who first fled France sometime before 1628, spent time in Cornwall, England, and are believed to have returned temporarily to France before departing for America early in 1643. They became  a well known, highly respected family of patriots; first --in presence and in numbers-- when, in response to the alarm of April 19, 1775, the minutemen and militia of Billerica, Massachusetts mustered on the common at Pollard's Tavern before marching to Concord and Meriam's Corner to face the British at the outbreak of the American Revolution.


 

 Descendants of Abraham Jaquith


Generation No. 1

1. ABRAHAM1 JAQUITH1,2,3 was born ca. 1610 in France, and died 17 Feb 1675/76 in Charlestown, Suffolk, MA4,5. He married Anne Jordan6 ca. 1643 in Massachusetts7, daughter of James J. Jordan. She was born ca. 1622 in what became Dedham, MA8, and died Aft. 1675.

From the book, Jaquith Family in America (unverified):

Abraham Jaquith is believed to have landed in Boston June 18, 1643
with
Huguenots from La Rochelle, France, who stopped at Cape Sable
Island,
Nova Scotia, where Charles de la Tour and Madame La Tour
boarded their
vessel. They proceeded to Boston where La Tour persuaded
Governor
Winthrop and his council that they could stay.  

Abraham was admitted to the 1st Church of Charlestown on October 9, 1643. His wife, Ann, had been admitted earlier, on February 13, 1643. He was declared a "Freeman" in 1656, which meant he was accepted in full membership in the church and community as having met all the requirements of faith and morals. Only Freemen had full rights of citizenship in colonial Massachusetts.

His father-in-law was James Jordan, whose will is included in this chapter. James was born in England and is reported as arriving in America before 1620 ( unverified).

In 1648/49, Abraham purchased the home of "Widow Alice Barnard". A copy of the transaction can be found at the Boston Public Library in the 3rd Report of the Record, (commissioned by the City of Boston in 1878), Book of Reference, 562-1, Pg 110.

In 1659, an "Abram Jaquis(sic) of Woburn presented to the court his inability to (take part in) military exercise by reason of his bodily infirmity, as also the same certified to under the hand of Capt. Edward Johnson, is dismissed from all ordinary training. He is paying five shillings per annum to the use of the military company in the town wherein he dwells."

She was born ca. 170646, and died 17 Nov 1776 in Billerica, MA.47

 


Notes for ABRAHAM JAQUITH IV:
Abraham was given instructions from his father-in-law, Ebenezer Farley,
to make gifts of money to Benjamin and Samuel Farley, sons of Ebenezer's
brother Samuel who had died in 1717. Evidence indicates that Ebenezer was
the guardian of these boys and another boy, Nathaniel Ranger, after his bro-
ther's death, and that Abraham assumed this responsibility when Ebenezer
died in 1728. When Benjamin came of age , he took over the guardianship,
and in 1738/39, when Samuel reached the age of twenty-one, he quitclaimed
his interest in the Farley homestead to Abraham.


billericahouseGeorge Farley built this substantial dwelling on land he purchased in 1653. It was a stronghold in Philip's war of 1676. Located at 161 Concord Road just east of Rt. 3 in Billerica, it became an historic landmark in town; being one of the oldest houses still standing in the state. " The west end
is the original Farley house."
(unk. source).  In 2000, Peter Jaquith Casey, the owner and 12th generation descendent of the Jaquith family, took the house down piece by piece to preserve it and had it moved to New Hampshire and put in storage.


Myrl Jaquith, email 29 Mar 2004:
As far as the Farley-Jaquith house is concerned, I haven't been there since
1986 but I remember it is at 161 Concord Road, a short way east of Rt. 3
which is a major north-south divided highwayin Billerica. As you drive east
from Rt. 3, it is on your left. When I was there, Joseph Jaquith Casey lived
in the house. In 1994, Reader's Digest published an article about a Union
soldier from Massachusetts named
Jerome Peirce who died at Spotsylvania
Courthouse, VA and is buried in the Fredericksburg National Cemetery. He
married a Jaquith woman and they lived in that house. It mentioned that the
current (1994) occupant was Peter Jaquith Casey, Joe's son.

            His wife

    HANNAH FARLEY

               1776



According to Donna Valley Stuart's, Some Descendants of George Farley, NEHG Register Vol 136, (9 Jan 1982) Hannah Farley died in 1756. Ms. Stuart cited Billerica Vital Records as her source. Could "1776" on the tombstone refer to the death of a 2nd wife named Sarah? History of Billerica, (1883), 77, "(Sarah) who d. 7 Nov 1776, age 70." Could "Sarah" be a nickname for Hannah Farley Jaquith, or was the year

1776 on the tombstone in error?

Notes for EBENEZER JAQUITH:
Ebenezer was one of the Jaquiths at the Battle of Lexington at the beginning of
the
Revolution in 1775. His son Ebenenzer II served in the same unit, and his brother Timothy was reportedly there, but was not included in the same muster
roll (see below).


The town of Hollis was the first town to set up a monument on which can be
read the names of all who responded to the alarm of April 19, 1775. Included
in
the list of names... Ebenezer Jaquith.

The Battle of Lexington, which resulted as part of "the alarm of 19 April 1775",
was a brief skirmish that marked the first military clash in the American Revolution (1775-1783). It took place on April 19, 1775, between some 70-77 colonial minutemen commanded by Captain John Parker, and about 700 British soldiers marching on Concord, Massachusetts, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith. The American militia, warned of the British approach by the patriot Paul Revere and others, had assembled to halt the British. Inspired by the words of Captain Parker, " Stand your ground; don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here", the Americans refused to disperse when ordered to do so by the commander of the British advance units. Gunfire was exchanged and eight Americans were killed before the minutemen retreated.


Source: http://americaninsuranceagency.com/wilmington.html
On the fated morning of April 19,1775, two companies of Minute Men started
out
on the road to Lexington very early in response to the "alarum," one of them
commanded by Captain Cadwallader Ford, the other by Capt. Timothy Walker.
Later another went out, commanded by Capt. John Harnden. They fought at Lex-
ington,
Concord and Bunker Hill. The number of Wilmington men who fought in the Revolutionary War was 260, including 24 captains, several of whom rose to higher command. This indicates that nearly all the able-bodied men of Wilmington were
engaged in the struggle
for liberty.

Notes for Benjamin Jaquith:
Lehtinen, History of Jaffrey:
"Benjamin, younger brother of Ebenezer . . . was the first of the Jaquith name to come to Jaffrey. He was in Fitchfurg, Mass., which was set off from Lunenburg in 1764, as early as 1766, when his oldest child Phebe was born. He was highway surveyor in Fitchburg in 1776, and came to Jaffrey soon after, and continued to live here for ten or twelve years. He owned 100 arces of land in Jaffrey, lot 18, range 6, north of the present village of East Jaffrey and south of the so-called Baldwin farm. He served on committees to lay out highways, 1779-81; was fence viewer and grand juryman in1782, and field driver in 1785. On Aug. 11, 1786, he sold his Jaffrey farm to Thomas Brattle, a prominent citizen of Boston . In February, 1787, with his wife 'Pheby,'... he returned to Fitchburg where he was promptly warned out of town, against the friendly interposition of Doctor Marshall, presumably a relative of 'Pheby'". Whatever the reason --possibly something that went back to his previous residency in Fitchburg, the selectmen of the town made it clear he and his family were not welcomed. History of Jaffrey continues, "After giving expression to their official desires, no further action appears to have been taken by the selecmen and Benjamin continued to abide in Fitchburg until his deatrh, Feb. 11, 1810."

More About Joseph Jaquith:
Military service: Joseph marched on the Lexington Alarm, 19 Apr 1775.103,104

Susan Jaquith Abbott (quoted in ):
"It was my grandfather, Joseph Jaquith, who joined the patriots on the
arrival of the message from Lexington. He was ploughing in 'The Old Field'
in the rear of our home when the word of danger reached him. He hastily un-
hitched his oxen from the plough, ran for the house, took his gun from the wall
over the door in 'Aunt Abigail's room,' saying, 'The redcoats are coming. He
was not a member of an organized company previous to the alarm, but started
off as many others did at the call of need. When he returned with other Billerica
soldiers, there was but little military precision; their guns were slung over their
shoulders in an easy-going manner."

Notes for EBENEZER JAQUITH, JR.:
There are several reports of Ebenezer's military history which are based on his name being included in various rosters. In his own declaration filed with his pension application in September 1832, he noted, "...we were no longer than a fortnight in any one place and I cannot recollect them all..." He makes no mention of his service with Col. Green and the Minute Men who marched on April 19, 1775, or of being at Cambridge on May 1, 1775 or at Bunker Hill, although his name is included in lists of men who were present.


At 17 years old, he was a private in Capt. Timothy Walker's Co. of Militia,
Col. Green's regiment, and marched with the "Minute Men" on the alarm of
April 19,1775, serving for two days. He was also included on a list in
Wilmington, November 25, 1776 of men drafted to reinforce the army at a
moment's notice until March 1, 1777. (Ref: Massachusetts Soldiers and
Sailors in Revolution.)


EBENEZER5 JAQUITH (Ebenezer4, Abraham3-2-1) b. 10 September 1742, age 32, d. 12 December 1814. Named on the Hollis, NH monument among those who responded to the Lexington Alarm. Served during the Battle of Bunker Hill and in Capt. D. Emerson's Co. in the 1776 Ticonderoga Expedition. pp. 63-64, item 48


Jaquith Family in America, Ebenezer , pg 44; (Courtesy of Myrl Jaquith)

He was at Bunker Hill, and at one time was a member of Captain Pollard's Company from Billerica (Mass. Soldiers & Sailors, 8:720, 722)."

JAQUITH, EBENEZER, Jr., son of Ebenezer (see family
record), came to Jaffrey about 1779; settled on lots 13 and
14, range 9, and died June 19, 1844, a. 85. Gravestone No.
459 in Old Burying Yard, Jaffrey Center. He was in Capt.
Solomon Pollard’s (Billerica) Co. of Militia, (see James
Stevens’ Diary), and is named in the list of men in Camp at
Cambridge, Mass., May 1, 1775. He is also listed as having
served at the battle of Bunker Hill. The story of his
military service in the Revolution is best given as he
himself told it in his declaration filed with his pension
application.


In part of his declaration filed as part of his application for a military pension, 

Ebenezer stated:

 

"I went from Billerica, Mass. through Providence, R.I. and thence to the
vicinity of Kingsbridge, crossed the North River at Fish Kill, and
was at
White Plains...I was dismissed at Rahway, N.J..."


I found Fishkill on the map not far from Danbury, MA, and further south is White Plains. Rahway, NJ was easy, but "Kingsbridge" is now a neighborhood in the northwest part of the Bronx County. However, prior to 1873, this area was part of Westchester County. The "North River" he crossed at Fishkill is the Hudson River. (The South River is the Delaware River. These marked the north and south boundaries of the Dutch controlled areas in the 1600s.)
 
His declaration reads as follows:

Ebenezer Jaquith Declaration, Sept. 5, 1832,
before Probate Court of Cheshire County. I,
Ebenezer Jaquith a resident of Jaffrey, a. 73 yrs.
last Nov. duly sworn &c... 1st that in Dec. of the year
1776, as I think, I enlisted and served three months in the
company of Capt. John Trull Lieut Amos Foster, in Col.
Thatcher’s regt. of Mass. Militia— that I went from
Billerica, Mass. through Providence, R. I. and thence to the
vicinity of Kingsbridge, crossed the North River at Fish
Kill, and was at White Plains, but I do not recollect being
at Albany. Col. Thatcher’s Regt. was at so many places that
I think we were no longer than a fortnight in any one place
and I cannot recollect them all; that I was dismissed at
Rahway, N.J. “2d— That I enlisted as a private soldier in the
company commanded by Capt. John White in the Rigiment of
Col. Stearns; and about the first of April 1777 or 1778, but
as I believe, the latter, went to Roxbury from Fitchburg and
from thence to Castle William, now Fort Independence in
Boston Harbor; that I served three months on the Castle
and was then discharged I further say that I am the same
Ebenezer Jaquith mentioned in the affidavit of Benjamin
Johnson. I was born at Billerica, Mass., in the year 1759.
I suppose there is a record of my age at Billerica When
called into the service the first time I lived at
Billerica, and last at Fitchburg, Mass., and since then I
have lived at Jaffrey, Cheshire Co., N. H. & now reside
there. I enlisted as before stated-- At the Castle there was a
company of Militia commanded by Capt. Washburn While Col.
Thatcher’s regt. was near Kingsbridge there were three other
regts. there, the whole commanded by Gen. Heath, but I do
not recollect any of the Colonels. As we were marched down
the river to take a fort (which however was not taken) some
men were frozen to death it being extremely cold — Never
received any written dis-charge The Rev. Laban Ainsworth and
Dea. David Gillman [Gilmore] live near me in said Jaffrey
and can I believe testify as to my character for veracity
and belief of my services as a soldier of the revolution.
Statement of David Gillman 2d [Gilmore] and Rev. Laban
Ainsworth vouched for by Asa Parker, Register of Probate.
Certificate by Benjamin Johnson of Leominster that he
served with Ebenezer Jaquith, then of Fitchburg, at Castle
William. Also certificate to same effect by Zebadiah Rogers
of Billerica.

Joanne, Thought you might find this inquiry I received of interest. Myrl


Hello Myrl,
I have an inquiry for you regarding a name I found chiseled
in rock along the Lassen Applegate trail in northwester Nevada.
The inscription reads

 

GEORGE. N. JAqUITH.
JULY. THE. 16th. 1852.
from. WIS.

 

I have reproduced the inscription exactly as it reads, including
the periods after each word, and the use of upper case letters
primarily as shown. The lower case q appears raised up to align
itself with the upper and lower edges of all the other letters as
the only exception. I have traveled through this area before but
only noticed the name on this last trip. My mind wandered as to
how it got there: Wagon train member leaving his mark, Young boy
doodling, or better yet, with enough room to write Wisconsin in full,
I envisioned, " George, we're leaving, come along now!"

If you know anything about George or his kin could you pass it along
to me. I would like to know a little about him. This was one nasty can-
yon pass they had to get through to get to Oregon or the California
gold fields.
Sincerely,
Michael D. Scott

Forgot to mention, that near George's name was carved:

EJT

Hi Michael,
Here's what I found in The Jaquith Family in America by George
Oakes Jaquith and Georgetta Jaquith Walker, New England Historic
Genealogical Society, (Boston, 1982), p. 135:
"Isaac(7) Jaquith (Abraham [6-5-4-3-2-1] was born at New Gloucester,
Maine, 18 Jan 1788 and died at Sullivan, Wisconsin, 11 Nov 1854. He
married at Litchfield, Maine 15 September 1810 Jane Tinkham, who was
born there 19 July 1791 and died at Sullivan, 15 April 1876. Both Isaac
and Jane are buried in Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Oak Hill or Palmyra,
Wisconsin. Isaac lived on his father's farm at Litchfield and Brownsville,
Maine, until 1830, when, with his brother John, he moved to a tract of land
at Sullivan, given by the government for military service."
 
They apparently had 12 children, of which the ninth was George Nathaniel
Jaquith. "George Nathaniel, b. 14 Apr. 1828; d. 7 Apr. 1864, killed by
Indians, east of the Steen Mountains, Harney Co., OR; unm. Nathaniel with
his brothers Charles and Phineas were among the company of 33 men from
southern WI , who set out for CA in the spring of 1852; L. Allan White of
San Ramon, CA, reported that in 1962 he found the engraving of "George N.
Jaquith July 16, 1852" in High Rock Canyon in the remote northwestern part
of Nevada (at Gerlach). Nathaniel became part owner of a ranch on the John
Day River in east-central OR; when the Army needed civilian assistance in that
area a lawyer, C. W. Miller of Canyon City, was made captain of a posse of
15 soldiers and 30 civilians to find some Bannock Indians who had stolen some
 horses. Nathaniel was part of a detail of 4 men who were killed during this episode."
 
Michael, if you have a photo of this engraving or if you ever get back
there to take a picture, I would really like to have you e-mail one to me.

Thanks,
Myrl

108. Elijah7 Jaquith (EBENEZER6, EBENEZER5, ABRAHAM4,3,2,1) was born 27 Jun 1808 in Jaffrey, N.H., and died 19 Nov 1866 in Jaffrey, N.H.. He married Sarah Crosby 23 Apr 1833. She was born ca. Nov 1808, and died 05 Feb 1881.

Notes for Elijah Jaquith:
Elijah was a blacksmith and mechanical genius, and had a shop and dwelling in East Jaffrey. He is said to have invented Colt's Revolver, the first repeating arms.

Jaquith & Walker, paragraph 154. (courtesy of Myrl Jaquith)

Elijah moved to Shefford, Canada East, 50 years after
the Revolution, but returned to Jaffrey to marry Sarah
Crosby. The family lived in Canada for some years
before returning to Jaffrey. All the children are listed
in Annett and Lehtinen, History of Jaffrey, although
some were born in Canada.

Elijah was a machinist and a mechanical genius. He
improved Colt's revolver, the first repeating arms,
working out his models in his blacksmith shop in East
Jaffrey (ibid., 2:440).

Myrl Jaquith:
I grew up with the family legend that Samuel Colt had stolen Elijah Jaquith's idea and had patented it as his own. In 1961... (I met) Dr. Wallace W. White, who was an optometrist in Burlington, VT and owned the Harbor Hideaway restaurant and White's Gun He had all sorts of antique firearms on display in the restaurant. He commented that he had only encountered the name Jaquith in regard to guns, so I told him about the family legend.
 
He replied that he couldn't say that Colt had stolen the invention but that Elijah Jaquith had indeed made a few revolving rifles and that he, White, owned 2 of them. He had loaned one to the Smithsonian (where I later saw it) and the other was in a bank vault in Burlington.

The rifle at the Smithsonian was included in a display which was entitled "Colt's Competitors". It was a 36 cal. carbine in which the cylinder rotated above the breech.

Marriage Notes for Elijah Jaquith and Sarah Crosby:
(Ref. Eunice Halbedel, email 18 May 2004: )
"...on a rock which I've passed many times... on one side it says Lacy, on the other side it says Jacquith and it is the grave of Elijah (died Nov. 19, 1866), his wife, Sarah C. (died Feb. 5, 1881), and their son Lafayette (died Jan. 7, 1850). There are also 3 newer graves in the same plot, a Dr. Frederick Wellington (can't read the dod), Winnie Wellington, died Dec. 2, 1960, and a Boutelle who died Mar. 30, 1950. There must be some kind of relation because this particular site is closed in with a granite wall around it. The Lacy's must be related also since they are on the other side of the rock. It really is just a big boulder with the names on it, and the only one like it in Conant Cemetery. "

119. Collins H.7 Jaquith (Jesse6, EBENEZER5, ABRAHAM4,3,2,1) was born

11 Aug 1790 in Chester, Windsor, VT, and died 26 Jul 1878 in Rochester, Monroe, NY. He married Miriam Bond Powers 17 Sep 1816, daughter of Whitcomb Powers and Miriam Bond. She was born 17 Nov 1795 in Peterboro, NH.

Notes for Collins H. Jaquith:
Jacques database, courtesy of Johansen: Rem. from Gilsum to Keene 1816, where he carried an extensive business in shoemaking. He became a prominent man in that town; deputy sheriff and deacon in the ch. He lost his property through a dishonest agent, and finally rem. to Java, N.Y.

Jaquith & Walker, paragraph 162.
Collins and Miriam resided at Gilsom and Keene, NH,
where he had a shoe business. At Keene, Collins was a
leader in the community and a deacon in the
Congregational Church. He was president of the Library Society
and on the committee for building the church
meetinghouse. Through the dishonesty of the St. Louis, MO agent
of his shoe business, Collins lost all his property.
He and Miriam removed to Java, NY, soon after 1832,
where he was listed with his family in teh 1850 census
(Hoosick, Rensselaer Co., NY, M432-585). Aaron
Mansfield, later husband of Betsey Jaquith (no. 161), lived
at Java several years and managed the farm for Collins
before Aaron moved to Vermont.

Myrl Jaquith: Jaquith & Walker state that Miriam was born at
Peterboro, VT. However, I cannot find Peterboro, VT nor have
I ever heard of a municipality in Vermont named
Peterboro. However, there is a town named Peterborough in
New Hampshire and I believe this to be her actual
birthplace.

Marriage Notes for Helen Davis and Maitland Robbins:
Maitland and Helen were married 1869 in Glencoe, Minn. Their first child,
Cora, was born 1870 in Illinois. After leaving Illinois, the family settled
in what became Brownton, Minnesota along with four other families, three of
whom were related --Sturdevants, Haffmans, and Ames-- the exception being
the Alexanders. In 1873, Wallace Robbins was born in the house in which
previous settlers, the White
family, had been massacred by Indians during an
uprising.

Of Maitland and Helen's 8 children, 5 died very young: Samuel (1Yr)
in 1880, buried in the old cemetery near Lake Marion, MN.; Cora (27yrs. old)
in 1897; Laurel (12 years) Molly (16) and Maud (22) in 1899.

Helen and Mait's oldest daughter, Cora Zittella Robbins. died September 21, 1897. The deaths of three Robbins daughters took place just two years later,
and within 8 weeks following the marriage of their brother, Wallace, our "Grandpa Robbins". His wedding on July 4th 1899 must have been such a happy occasion, and it's easy to picture all of the Robbins and Edmon families gathered
to celebrate. The young sisters, particularly, must have been exited. It's incredibly sad to learn Helen and Maitland were so unexpectedly left with an empty house.
