Island, gave Congress the first proof of the general disaffection of the society. The Congress recommended the executives of the several colonies or States to watch their movements; and the executive council of Pennsylvania were earnestly exhorted to arrest and secure the persons of eleven of the leading men of that society in Philadelphia, whose names were given. It was done, Aug. 28, 1777, and John Fisher, Abel James, James Pemberton, Henry Drinker, Israel Pemberton, John Pemberton, John James, Samuel Pleasants, Thomas Wharton, Sr., Thomas Fisher, and Samuel Fisher, leading members, were banished to Fredericksburg, Va. The reason given by Congress for this act was that when the enemy were pressing on towards Philadelphia in December, 1777, a certain seditious publication, addressed To our Friends and Brethren in Religious Profession in these and the adjacent Provinces, signed John Pemberton, in and on behalf of the Meeting of sufferings, held in Philadelphia, Dec. 26, 1776, had

the rank of brevet second lieutenant. He never joined the regiment, however, and resigned December 20, 1860, on the day of the secession of South Carolina, being at that time in Columbia. Reporting to Governor Pickens at Charleston, he was assigned to drilling artillery at Castle Pinckney and Fort Moultrie. Previous to the bombardment of Fort Sumter he was commissioned first lieutenant of the regiment of regular artillery, in charge of Fort Johnson, on Morris island, under command of Capt. John James. There Lieutenant Gibbes fired the signal gun for the attack on Fort Sumter, and immediately afterward fired a ten-inch shell from a mortar, which was the first shot fired at the fort, and, according to Federal Lieut. Richard K. Meade, fell inside the walls of Sumter. Not long after Lieutenant Gibbes resigned his rank in the State forces, and going to Richmond, was assigned to duty with Gen. H. A. Wise, with the rank of major and command of three batteries of artillery. He was on du

Read before the Medford Historical Society, April 4, 1908.] ONE of the most prominent men in Medford for fifty years subsequent to 1820, was Galen James, who came to this town in early manhood and gave to it and its interests the best part of an active and earnest life. Born in Scituate, Massachusetts, near the Block House Yard on the North River, where his family had carried on ship building for several generations, he inherited the trade of a ship carpenter. He was the son of Major John James and Patience Clapp; he was born September 29, 1790, and baptized June 5, 1791, as Galen Clapp James, in honor of his maternal grandfather. He did not habitually use his middle initial, but it appears in his two marriage intentions filed in Medford. His ancestry includes the pioneers of Plymouth County, Mayflower passengers and sturdy men of Kent, who settled Scituate in 1628. We find among his forebears, the names of Brewster, Turner, Briggs, King, Otis, Brooks, and others prominen

his friend no one had a better claim than he to the grand old name of gentleman. Edward became a surgeon in the navy in 1832 and joined Commodore Wilkes' United States exploring expedition. He left it at Valparaiso about 1840, returned home and became resident physician and surgeon in Chelsea Naval Hospital, where he died suddenly November 4, 1869. His obituary was also written by Mr. Hillard. A sister, Martha, became the second wife of Chief Justice Cushing, who succeeded her brother John James as Chief Justice of New Hampshire. When the family moved to Charlestown, in 1822, Mrs. Gilchrist opened a select school for young ladies which was continued for a considerable time. She was a highly educated lady, and previous to her marriage to Captain Gilchrist had been a teacher in Medford, in the celebrated school of Mrs. Rowson. Her school soon acquired a wide reputation, and pupils were attracted to it from a great distance. It was commenced at South Charlestown, but after
