Old Cemetery Inscriptions. Bead March 3, 1908. By Charles D. Elliot. The land for the Old Milk Row Cemetery, which is now known as the Somerville Cemetery, was deeded May 17, 1804, by Samuel Tufts to the following persons, viz.: Timothy Tufts, Nathaniel Hawkins, Samuel Kent, Samuel Shed, John Stone, and their associates, on the express condition that the same be improved for no other purpose than for a burying place, etc. It was a part of the grantor's farm, and there is no reason to suppose that it had been used as a place of burial previous to 1804. The following inscriptions were copied from its tombs and headstones in 1857 by Miss Clariana Bailey. From a casual examination which I made in the yard in 1900, I should say that more than one-half of these grave stones are gone, and all traces of the resting-places of the persons whom they commemorated are now obliterated. I have reason for thinking that in many cases this removal of headstones was intentional and for the
Port Hudson. a paper read before the Somerville Historical Society. By Charles D. Elliot. Before relating the incidents and general story of the siege of Port Hudson, I will briefly allude to some of the events of the Civil War preceding it. At the end of the first year of the war, December 31, 1861, all of the seceding states were practically under full control of the Confederate government; and were cut off from, and outside of, the civil or military jurisdiction of the Federal government. One hundred and eighty-four battles and engagements were fought in 1861, eighty-two of which were in Missouri, and thirty-four in Virginia, twenty-six in West Virginia, eighteen in Kentucky, six in Maryland, and only eighteen in all other parts of the Union and Confederacy. Thus in the first year it had been entirely a warfare in the border states. Of these battles, only sixteen were fought in the first half of 1861, and one hundred and sixty-eight in its last half. Virginia and
Old Cemetery Inscriptions <*> By Charles D. Elliot. [Continued]. In Memory of Sarah Ann, wife of Albert Tufts, who died May 2, 1842, aged 30 years. Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; they rest from their labors; and their works do follow them. Also their daughter, Sarah Ann, who died Aug. 10, 1842, aged 3 mos. Suffer little children, and forbid them not to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of Heaven. Sacred to the Memory of Mr. Luther Mitchell, who died in Somerville, Mass., Sep. 5, 1846, aged 37 years 3 months. Dearest Husband, thou hast left us, And thy loss we deeply feel; Yet 'tis God that hath bereft us, He can all our sorrows heal. Erected to the Memory of Mary Ethelinda, youngest daughter of James M. & Catherine W. Littlefield, who died April 10, 1847, aged 3 years. And can it be that Ethelinda's gone? Shall we no more that smiling face behold? Are those sweet accents hushed upon her tongue? Father, thy will, not ours
Land on Barberry Lane. Additional Historical information concerning the Central Hill Park property, going back into early Colonial times. By L. Roger Wentworth, Esq. I will supplement Mr. Sargent's very interesting article by a history of the Barberry Lane property from Patrick T. Jackson's ownership back to the time when it was part of the stinted common. Of the history of the stinted common, I think Mr. Elliot has fully written. There was a partition of a portion of the common made in 1681, and the proprietors thereof drew lots for their shares. Captain Timothy Wheeler drew lot No. 40. He was entitled to eight cow commons, and, therefore, twelve acres were set off to him. This was a parcel of forty rods frontage on Barberry Lane, and forty-eight rods frontage on School Street. Its opposite sides were equal. By deed dated July 9, 1683, Captain Wheeler for £ 55 lawful money of the colony of Massachusetts paid by William Stetson, John Cutler, and Aaron Ludkin, Deacons an
of researches said by Morse to have been made at the instance of the late Peter Bent Brigham. This I followed Mr. Morse in accepting in good faith. At the meeting to which I have referred, some suggestions by that sterling investigator, Charles D. Elliot, caused me to doubt the accuracy of the Morse account; and the result of my own researches, presented herewith, proves beyond question that the Brigham Family for generations has been weeping at the wrong shrine. As a matter of historical although his grave, like the graves of some others of his time, cannot be identified. In view of the foregoing circumstances, I feel that the indebtedness of the Brigham Family, indirectly to the Somerville Historical Society and directly to Messrs. Elliot and Thomas M. Hutchinson, is very great. W. E. B. Brigham Farme on ye Rocks. William E. Brigham in the History of the Brigham Family.
