ps, a Chronological Chart, and an Outline of Topics for a More Extensive Course of Study (843). Mrs. Baker died in Brooklyn, N. Y., April 27, 1893. A son, born in 1845, is one of the prominent physicians today in Boston—Dr. William H. Baker, named for a member of his father's parish. Third. Samuel Weed taught from February, 1 took good notes. Reads French, Spanish, Latin, Italian, a little Greek and begins German. He is a good listener. He resigned his position August 1, 1843. In 1845, at the invitation of the citizens of Medford, he delivered the Fourth of July oration in the Unitarian Church. Service in our schools seems to have been a gooderty of our esteemed townsman, the late Eleazar Boynton. We can determine the time of his being here by the dates of the marriage and death of his niece, 1831 and 1845. On this estate, on the west side of the lawn, is a Scotch laburnum and an English oak planted by Mr. Adams. He brought them as small cuttings from abroad, befor
Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 16., A projected Medford railroad. (search)
A projected Medford railroad. MR. Brooks, in his history of Medford, devoted but sixty lines to the subject of railroads, carefully tucked away in the chapter on roads or highways, and mentioned three corporations. These were the Boston and Lowell, Medford Branch and Stoneham Branch. The success attending the building of the Medford Branch, chartered in 1845, caused Stoneham people to attempt the latter enterprise. They obtained their first charter April 27, 1847, as an extension of the Medford Branch, with the proviso that organization and location be made within one year, and construction within three years. So little was done, however, that on April 21, 1848, the general court extended the time of location to April 23, 1849. As the conditions were not met, this charter lapsed, and on May 15, 1852, a second charter was granted. Mr. Brooks names Thaddeus Richardson, Amasa Farrar and William Young as corporators. Mr. Farrar was a civil engineer and probably surveyed t
A query Answered. On page 97, Vol. XV, of the Register, is a quotation from Francis Parkman (written in 1845) relating to a navy surgeon at Medford, followed by the editor's query, Who was he? Mr. Francis Wait writes, referring to Parkman's stay in Medford: In those days a Colonel Jaques lived at Ten Hills Farm-house, which was a short distance over the line in Charlestown (now Somerville) and set some way back from Medford turnpike. I have seen Jaques ride through Medford on gunning trips with his hounds following, and sometimes on the return home there would be one or more dogs hours behind him. I have been told the story of his swapping horses with a man in Charlestown Square, after which he told him to examine the horse's eyes, one of which was artificial. I think that Colonel Jaques, who was a veterinary, if not a naval surgeon, answers the query. The following, from the Somerville journal Souvenir, 1892, is communicated by Mrs. H. M. Heald of that city:
