Lawrence Leach1,2

b. about 1577, d. before 25 June 1662
     Lawrence Leach was born about 1577 (based on his age of "85 years or thereabouts" when he made his will) in England.3 He married Elizabeth Mileham, daughter of John Mylam and Elizabeth (?), on 2 February 1605/6 in Hurst, Berkshire, England.3 He died before 25 June 1662, when his will was proved.1
     Lawrence Leach and his wife Elizabeth emigrated from England to Salem, Massachusetts, as part of the Massachusetts Bay Company. Their ship, The Talbot, arrived at Manchester Harbor on 27 June 1629.2 Matthew Craddock (governor of the Massachusetts Bay Company) wrote in a letter to John Endicott (the appointed governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony), dated 17 April 1629, "We desire you to take notice of one Lawrence Leach, whom we have found a careful and painful man, and we doubt not but he will continue his diligence let him have deserving respect."1
     He was active in civic affairs, serving several times as a juryman between 1630 and 1642, including the 9 November 1630 manslaughter trial of Walter Palmer for the death of Austen Bratcher, in which the defendant was found not guilty. He also served as selectman from 1636-1640, and in 1642.2,1 He requested status as a freeman in Salem on 19 October 1630, and was selected on 18 May 1631.1 He and his wife Elizabeth were listed among the church members in Salem in 1636.1
     He was granted 100 acres of upland and six acres of marsh in Salem on 17 February 1636/37, and an additional 3/4 acre of marsh on 25 December 1637. He was also granted 15 acres of meadow on 7 May 1638, and 10 more acres on 9 December 1639.1
     On 18 March 1657/58 he entered a caution (an entry in the land records indicating a person's legal interest in a tract of land) for his son Richard, stating that he had transferred all of his farm to Richard, except for what he and his wife needed for the remainder of their lives.1
     His oral will was made about a year before his death, and was proved in Salem on 25 June 1662 ("25 (4) 1662"). He left everything, after his debts were paid, including £30 "for the mill," to his wife Elizabeth, who was appointed administrator. His estate was valued at £138 14s 8d, and included: his house with two acres of land, £30; a mill, £40; 20 acres of unimproved land, £10; and 15 acres of meadow, £20.2,4,1
     John Leach, brother of Lawrence Leach, also emigrated from England to Massachusetts, but without his wife, and was admitted as a resident of Salem on 23 January 1636/37. This was likely the same John Leach who married Margaret Webb in Sonning, Berkshire, England, on 9 October 1623. In February 1648/49 John Leach Sr. was questioned by the Court about living apart from his wife in England. Margaret Leach "widow" was buried on 23 August 1651 in Hurst, Berkshire, England. In his oral will made in 1658, he left his estate to John Leach, son of Richard Leach.3,1
     The Leach genealogy published by F. Phelps Leach in 1924 lists ten children for Lawrence Leach and his wife Elizabeth, including Ambrose Leach, James Leach, Edmund Leach and Giles Leach. However, in The Great Migration Begins, 1620-1633, Robert Charles Anderson notes that the Leach genealogy included as sons of Lawrence "many persons of the same surname from all parts of New England (and even from old England) who could not have been his children," and that in addition the entry for Robert Leach combined information on two different men by that name. The children listed here include only those supported by more reliable sources.1

     John Edwin Abbot was born on 17 August 1831 in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.1,2 He was the son of George Abbot and Nancy Stickney.1,2 He died suddenly on 15 January 1911 at age 79 in Morganton, Burke Co., North Carolina, from "a very serious affection of the heart."3,4 He was buried on 18 January 1911 at Central Cemetery in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.3
     John Edwin Abbot traveled extensively at sea during his youth. In one letter he wrote about a 16-18 month trip around the world, from Boston to San Francisco via Cape Horn in three months, then across the Pacific to Manila in ten months, then to Singapore, Penang, and Calcutta where they stayed two months and took on cargo, then back home to Boston. A mutiny arose early in the trip, near Cape Horn. The mutineers were put in irons, and the first mate was left ashore in San Francisco.5
     By 1859 he had grown tired of his life at sea, and in 1868 moved to North Carolina. The Bowditch genealogy by Fred Bowditch doesn't explicitly say when he began living with his sister Elizabeth and her husband Joseph Bowditch. He was living with them in their son John's household in 1900, and he was living with his niece Georgiana in the family home after Elizabeth and Joseph's deaths.6,7
     In 1875 he granted a 750-acre parcel of land in Yancey Co., North Carolina, described as "the homestead of Joseph H. Bowditch" to his sister Elizabeth.8
     On 30 April 1907 he and his niece Georgiana moved to Burnsville, Yancey Co., North Carolina, where they boarded for a few months.9 In September 1907 they moved to Morganton, Burke Co., North Carolina.9

William H. Thorndike1,2

b. 17 April 1835, d. 29 January 1887
William H. Thorndike (1835-1887). Photo copyright First Parish Church, Unitarian Universalist, Beverly, Massachusetts; used by permission.
     William H. Thorndike was born on 17 April 1835 in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.3,4 He was the son of Albert Thorndike and Joanna Batchelder Lovett.4,5,6,7 He was married by Rev. J. C. Kimball, Pastor of the First Church, to Martha Eliza Abbot, daughter of George Abbot and Nancy Stickney, on 17 April 1862 in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.6,1,4 He died on 29 January 1887 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin, at age 51 from a lung ailment, possibly pneumonia, contracted from one of his patients. The funeral was conducted by the Loyal Legion.4,8 He was buried at Central Cemetery in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.9
     William H. Thorndike graduated from Harvard College in 1854, and from Harvard Medical School three years later.7 He then served as a "house pupil" (i.e., resident) at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston for eighteen months3, and also at Rainsford Island Hospital in Boston Harbor3, before setting up his own practice in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.3
     On 21 May 1862, as a civilian, he was one of 25 surgeons who were requisitioned and sent to assist the Army of the Potomac near Williamsburg, Virginia, during the Civil War.2 He later enlisted in Beverly, on 11 August 1862, as First Assistant Surgeon in the 34th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, and was commissioned as a First Lieutenant the following day. The regiment traveled to Washington, D. C., 15-17 August 1862, and remained in the area as part of the defense of the Capital until the following summer. During that time, in February 1863, William returned home on leave from the War Department (probably in anticipation of the birth of his son Paul), in "spite of the disapproval of Gen. Heintzelman," commander of the 22nd Corps.10,11,12,13,14
     On 9 July 1863 they left Washington for Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, but William was left behind for a time in charge of the hospital. The regiment remained stationed at Harper's Ferry until February 1864. On 18 October 1863 they fought at Ripon, West Virginia, "with slight loss." They led an expedition to Harrisonburg, Virginia, beginning on 10 December and traveling up the Shenandoah River, and returned to Harper's Ferry on 24 December.15,13,14
     While at Harper's Ferry William was promoted to full Surgeon on 17 November 1863, to be transferred to the 39th Massachusetts Infantry. The Lt. Colonel of the 34th Regiment, William Lincoln, noted in his diary on 31 November that "both as officer and man [he] has won the esteem and love of the whole command," and that "his personal gain, from this promotion, don't at all reconcile us to our loss." He noted further on 31 December that "we shall be fortunate indeed if we secure a successor who comes any way near filling his place." On 3 January 1864 he was still with the 34th, because Maj. Gen. Kelley, commander of the Division, refused to let him go, saying "the exigencies of the service require his presence in this department." He was commissioned as a Major in the 39th Regiment on 22 January 1864, but didn't actually leave for his new assignment until 31 January.10,11,16
     The 39th was camped at Mitchell's Station near the Cedar Mountain battlefield in Culpeper Co., Virginia, during the winter of 1863-64. They broke camp on 4 May 1864 as part of Grant's Overland Campaign, and quickly found themselves engaged with the enemy on the Orange Turnpike at the Battle of the Wilderness from 5-6 May, where they lost 2 men killed and 18 wounded, and on the Brock road at Spotsylvania on 8 and 10 May, where they lost a total of 135 men with 32 killed. They left the area of Spotsylvania on 21 May, and were at the Battle of North Anna from 23 to 26 May, and the Battle of Cold Harbor from 31 May to 12 June, suffering only light casualties.
     They crossed the James River on 16 June, and joined the Union lines at Petersburg, Virginia. They were heavily engaged at the Weldon Railroad from 18-19 August 1864, with 10 men killed, 32 wounded, and 245 captured. During the winter of 1864-65 they were involved in various activities during the Siege of Petersburg, including the Battle of Hatcher's Run from 5-7 February 1865, and near White Oak Road in the Battle of Five Forks on 31 March and 1 April.17,18
     After the fall of Petersburg the regiment joined in the pursuit of Gen. Lee's army, and were just a few miles from Appomattox Court House when Lee surrendered there on 9 April. They left Appomattox on 15 April, eventually reaching Fort Albany in Arlington, Virginia, on 12 May. After participating in the Grand Review in Washington on 23 May, William was mustered out on 2 June 1865. The regiment traveled home to Readville, Massachusetts, arriving on 6 June, and were paid and disbanded on 14 June.10,11,17,18
     After the war, he and his wife Martha moved to Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin, about 1866.1,7 Living with them there in 1870 were Martha's sister Ellen and her husband Johnson McClure and family, plus servants Gena Darnell and Nora White.19 In 1880, after his wife Martha's death, he continued to share his household in Milwaukee with her sister Ellen and her family. Also living there were servants Minnie O'Donel and Sue Smith.20
     His medical practice thrived in Milwaukee, where he developed a large clientele, and was one of the original members of the Milwaukee Medical and Surgical Club (now the Milwaukee Academy of Medicine), serving as secretary for many years. He was also a member of the county and state Medical Societies.3,8 He was a charter member of the Loyal Legion, a patriotic organization formed by Civil War military officers in 1865; a member of the Masonic Order, Wisconsin Lodge No. 13; and an active member and officer in the Unitarian Church.8 He loved music, was a member of the local Philharmonic Society, and a charter member and President of the Arion Musical Club.8
     His obituary describes him as "a well educated, successful physician, but also a man of refinement, scholarly tastes, general cultivation, and of such general character and worth as to endear him to all who knew him well." It also says he was "unassuming in demeanor," and "rather retiring than forward in intercourse; rendering an intimate acquaintance necessary to fully appreciate his value."8
     In addition to Paul, Abbot, and William, the Thorndike genealogy lists a fourth child for William and Martha (Abbot) Thorndike, Alice Coleman Thorndike, who died young. However, it does not cite a source, and no other evidence has been found for her.21

Frederick Abbot1,2

b. 15 August 1841, d. 8 July 1903
     Frederick Abbot was born on 15 August 1841 (his on-line Wisconsin death record says 24 May 1840) in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.1,2,3 He was the son of George Abbot and Nancy Stickney.1,4,2 He was married by J. C. Kimball, Pastor of the 1st. Church, to Emily Lynde Whiting, daughter of Oliver Jaquith Whiting and Elizabeth Thorndike Lynde, on 7 June 1865 in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.5,2 He died from a cerebral hemorrhage on 8 July 1903, in a third-floor hallway of the Colby-Abbot Building (offices of the Wisconsin Central Railroad) in Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin, at age 61.4,6 He was buried at Central Cemetery in Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts.4
     Frederick Abbot lived in New York, New York, from about October 1864 to August 18657, and was working as a clerk at the time of his marriage.5 He and his wife Emily probably moved back to Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts, about August 1865 when he started a new job in Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts.8 They may have then moved to Boston sometime between 1866 and 1872. (Their daughter Cora was born in Beverly in 1866, and Edith was born in Boston in 1872.)9,10
     The family later moved to Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin, probably about 1879, as Frederick first appears in a Milwaukee city directory in 1880.11 He worked for the Wisconsin Central Rail Road in Milwaukee, first as a clerk. He quickly rose through the ranks, becoming a land agent by 1883, and comptroller by 1887, and was appointed vice-president on 12 April 1890. He also served as assistant treasurer and treasurer.12,13
     In 1880 they were living at 658 Van Buren St. in Milwaukee, and a servant, Mary Murphy age 26, was living with them.14 They moved to 705 Van Buren St. by 188315, and to 765 Van Buren St. by 1887.16 They were living there in 1900, along with their grandson John Hathaway, two nurses, a servant, and a cook.17

     She and her husband Frederick lived in New York, New York, for the first two months of their marriage5, but probably moved back to Beverly, Essex Co., Massachusetts, about August 1865 when Frederick started a new job in Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts.6 They may have then moved to Boston sometime between 1866 and 1872. (Their daughter Cora was born in Beverly in 1866, and Edith was born in Boston in 1872.)7,8
     The family later moved to Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin, probably about 1879, as Frederick first appears in a Milwaukee city directory in 1880.9 In 1880 they were living at 658 Van Buren St. in Milwaukee, and a servant, Mary Murphy age 26, was living with them.10 They moved to 705 Van Buren St. by 188311, and to 765 Van Buren St. by 1887.12 They were living there in 1900, along with their grandson John Hathaway, two nurses, a servant, and a cook.13
     She apparently suffered from a mental illness of some kind. In the 1910 and 1920 censuses she is listed as an inmate/patient at the Gundry Sanitarium in Baltimore, Maryland, a private facility for treating selected nervous and mental disorders in women.14,15

The 1914 date is when he and his family returned to the United States after moving back to Sweden for a time due to his wife's health.
