1903 Yearbook Summary

The Stark Family Association was organized in 1895 by Descendants of Nathan Stark and Anna Fitch (Aaron1; Aaron2; Abiel3; Nathan4). In these first years of the Association, Nathan and Anna's descendants held informal family reunions in August of each year. August 20, 1903, those at the annual family reunion decided to form the Association, electing officers and writing and approving a constitution for the Association.  After the meeting, the following "Report" of the proceedings was published.

In 1903 most of the members and those attending the reunion were descendants of Nathan Stark and Anna Fitch. However, members of several other branches were represented as members and at the reunion. These branches were:

 

Aaron1; William2; William3; Moses4;

Aaron1; William2; William3; Daniel4;

Aaron1; Aaron2; Abiel3; Abiel4;

 

Almost all of those attending the Family Reunion lived in New London County, Connecticut or in Connecticut Counties nearby. Eugene Stark Gardiner and his wife traveled the furthest distance; traveling from Franklin, Indiana to attend. He was a son of Edwin Gardiner and Emily Stark and a descendant of Nathan and Anna.

The Name Index for the Yearbooks will include the individuals recorded in each of the book by year; the page number where the entry can be found; along with their lineage to Aaron Stark [1608-1685] or their relationship (if known) to a descendant of Aaron.

The Stark Family Association

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Eight Annual Reunion of the Stark Family was held at Colchester, Conn., August twentieth, nineteen hundred and three. It was the largest and most enthusiastic gathering in the history of the Association, there being seventy-three members and friends in attendance.

A reception was held at 10:30, during which there was an exchange of greetings, and many new acquaintances were formed.

In opening a piano solo was well executed by Miss May Stark, of North Lyme, after which the President briefly extended a welcome to the Kinsfolk, as follows:

 

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:

 It gives me great pleasure to welcome so many of the relatives and friends here to-day, on old familiar ground of the Starks. The name Stark has been a familiar one in Colchester for 150 or 200 years. My ancestor, Abial Stark, died in this town about 1755, according to probate record. We are especially glad to see so many new faces, and to meet so many of the Lebanon branch of the family. We would like to make the gathering to-day

 

Page 8

informal as possible; hoping every one will feel that this is home for the day, and wishing all a pleasant time, I again extend to each a hearty welcome.

 

A tenor solo by Mr. J. Nelson Geer of Lebanon, entitled "Come Back to the Dear Old Farm," was finely rendered and heartily enjoyed by all.

REPORT OF HISTORIAN

 

To those of us who have had the great pleasure of attending these Stark Reunions in the past, it would seem that the main facts in the history of our Family have been so thoroughly demonstrated that nothing of much interest could remain for our Eighth Family Reunion. In one respect this is true; the origin and meaning of our name, and the brave deed which prompted it, are familiar to us all, as is also the fact that the Connecticut branch of the Family descended from one Aaron Stark, who settled at Mystic, Conn. in 1653*; of him I have been able to learn but little; however, it is apparent that the same loyalty to principle, and the same steadfastness of purpose which are characteristics of his descendants to-day, were dominant traits of his character. it is almost incredible that even two centuries and a half could have transformed the dreary wilderness of that day into this great Republic, foremost among the nations of the world; the fact must be beyond even the wildest dreams of our ancestor, yet it is upon the foundation that he and his associates builded that this great Nation stands to-day.

While enjoying the marvels of the present age, it may seem to some of us that the lives of our ancestors during

*Editor's Comment: Aaron was a resident of Connecticut in 1637 as described in the article entitled, "The Life & Times of Aaron Stark." However, the historian is correct in stating Aaron was not a resident of the region in and around Mystic, Connecticut until 1653, when he was sent by Mason to oversee his land grant in that region.

 

Page 10

peace must have been very tame and limited; let us consider what more dramatic events have taken place in our lives than in theirs. The same great God ruled the universe then as now; the same sun which warmed them was identical with ours; and as Horace Greely said, "If their road to mill and to meeting was longer than ours, they were doubtless as well content and with little suspicion of their ill fortune in having been born in the seventeenth instead of the twentieth century." It is more than probable that as great or even greater improvements will be perfected in future years than have been in the past, and that our descendants will look back upon the present age much as we do upon the past; let us see to it that we leave to posterity as clean a record as did our ancestors to us.

The various branches of the Stark Family are widely scattered, our Secretary being in communication with members from many different States of the Union, many of whom trace their ancestry back to the first Mystic settler. We have authentic information through the descendants of the same that the Family name is also widely distributed throughout Europe; one branch came from Germany, and the same was originally spelled "Starek," the e, however, is no longer used in the German word for "strong;" the family who reside in St. Lewis have been in America but little more than one generation. Another branch trace their ancestry to Wales; 

 

Page 11

they have the same story regarding origin of name, but their coat-of-arms differs from ours.

Another Stark came from north of Ireland in 1849; his name was Andrew, as was also his father's; his sons now reside in Stamford, Conn. We are also in communication with Mrs. Annie S. Faris, of Iowa, whose great-grandfather, Capt. John Stark, was a nephew of Major-General John Stark  the Bennington hero. Doubtless these all descended from the same (Muirhead), a Scotchman who rescued King James the Fourth from a bull in the forest of Cumberland by the exercise of his great strength. The King gave his rescuer the name Stark, meaning Strong, and authorized him to use as a coat-of-arms, a bull's head distilling dripping blood and the motto in Latin, "Fortiorum, fortia, facta," meaning brave deeds of brave men.

May we ever prove ourselves worthy of our crest. That "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches" could be said to apply to the Starks of to-day, who are well-informed, God-fearing men and women, integrity being one of their principle traits; it is told of one now dead, that because of his strict honesty, he was commonly known as "honest Abial," another, a most estimable man, was called "wicked Abial," to distinguish him from the first; and still another, now one of the oldest and most honored members of our Association, was then known as "little 'bial." Connected with our Family

 

Page 12

are men who stand in their profession, and who deserve the high honors they now enjoy; but we cannot claim all merit for Stark blood alone; as our foremothers were noble women, entitled to every consideration. Molly Graves Stark, the great-grandmother of many of us, was the daughter and sister of brave Revolutionary soldiers; her father was in Capt. Eliphalet Holmes' Co., Col. Selden's Reg't; he served later in several engagements, and was finally killed outside the fort, at the bloody Groton massacre, Sept. 6th, 1781; her brother served four years as a private and drummer, and his memory is greatly esteemed. Statira Lyon Stark was also the daughter of a Revolutionary soldier who served in Capt. James Chapman's Co., of Col. Samuel Holden Parson's 6th Reg't of Continentals; in Capt. Key's Co., of Major Backus's Reg't of Light Horse, and in Capt. Jones' Co., in Col. Latimer's Reg't of Militia at Saratoga.

Hannah Stark Smith, born in 1792, is remembered as being extremely neat and trim in her personal appearance. She was the first person to be baptized in the vicinity of Pleasant Valley, and wove the table linen which has been used from that time until the present at the communion service.

Mrs. Andrew Stark is remembered as being very gifited in "exhortation," as it was called in those days.

Mary Griffin Stark was was very intellectual and hospitable, as well as a smart business woman, rather retiring

 

Page 13

and modest in her manner. Of others equally interesting we hope to be able to learn more in the future.

The origin of this Association may be of interest to any who have not been in touch with it. The idea was suggested by the Misses Emily, Ida, and Jennie Stark, who issued invitations to the near relatives to meet at a picnic at Chapman's Falls, Millington, Conn., Aug. 13th, 1895; twenty-three responded to the invitations, and the occasion was so thoroughly enjoyed that it was decided to continue them, and for three succeeding years similar gatherings were held at Baker's Pavilion, a short distance from the Falls. In 1899 Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Jewett entertained the Family most pleasantly at the Jewett homestead in North Lyme, each reunion being more largely attended and with increasing interest; however, none was held in 1900, owing to a great deal of illness in the Family and the lamented death in August of Miss jennie Stark, one of its originators. the following year we were most cordially welcomed at the home of Deacon Abiel Stark, and it was decided to appoint a committee to draft a constitution; this was done , and at our last reunion, held in Hamburgh, the constitution was adopted and the Association was properly organized.

It was also voted to purchase badge-pins, in design a facsimile of the coat-of-arms.

Death has been busy during these eight years and removed many of our Family, for whom we sincerely mourn.

 

Page 14

As an Association, we are greatly indebted to the late Hon. Benjamin Stark of New London, who had made the genealogical research of Stark ancestry a thorough study.

Resolutions were adopted upon the death of Benjamin Stark, and also upon the deaths of Dea. Frederick Fosdick, Fitch Smith, Henry Stark, Emily Newbury, Jennie E. Stark, Mary Stark Gilbert, Nathan Stark, Joshua Stark, of Wisconsin, and William Stark, Chicago.

The Association to-day is in a most flourishing condition, having now fifty-four members, and may our constitution, "formed in order to make a more perfect union and to bring the widely scattered Family into closer fellowship," be but the beginning of a fraternal Association that shall end with us only when we are called to the Life above: and may future generations preserve the traditions, collect memorials, and rear a structure worthy of the name and race.

Trusting we may all have the pleasure of meeting in 1904, I herewith submit my report.

Motion made and carried that the report of the Historian be accepted, and the same be entered on the minutes of the Association.

STORY OF THE ORIGIN OF THE STARK NAME

I

A man once lived in Scotland,

When James the Fourth was King,

Whose name was known as Muirhead

Who did this bold, brave thing.

II

One day the King, while riding, met

A bull, in full rampage;

This Muirhead caught and killed the beast,

In spite of all his rage.

III

"Ho! who is this? and what his name!"

Thus spake the King outright,

"That risked his own to save a life,

 This day he is Sir Knight.

IV

Rise, Muirhead, rise, thou man of might,

My thanks are thus expressed;

Your name is Stark, most noble Knight,

The 'Bull's head' be your crest."

Page 17

The following, taken from Harper's Monthly, December, 1857, was read by Mrs. F. S. Fosdick of North Lyme.

 

CONNECTICUT

(FROM AN UNPUBLISHED POEM)

 

---- still her gray rocks tower above the sea

That crouches at their feet, a conquered wave;

'Tis a rough land of earth, and stone, and tree,

Where breathes no castled lord or cabined slave;

Where thoughts, and tongues, and hands are bold and free,

And friends will find a welcome, foes a grave:

And where none kneel, save when to heaven they prey,

Nor even then, unless in their own way.

 

Their's is a pure republic, wild, yet strong,

A "fierce democracie," where all are true

To what themselves have voted right or wrong

And to their laws denominated blue;

(If red, they might to Draco's code belong:)

A vestal state, which power could not subdue,

Nor promise win -- like her own eagle's nest,

Sacred the San Marino of the West.

Page 18

They love their land, because it is their own,

And scorn to give aught other reason why;

Would shake hands with a king upon his throne,

And think it kindness to his majesty;

A stubborn race, fearing and flattering none.

Such are they nurtured, such they live and die:

All but a few apostates, who are meddling

With merchandise, pounds, shillings, pence, and peddling;

 

Or wondering through the southern countries, teaching

The A, B, C, from Webster's spelling book;

Gallant and godly, making love and preaching,

And gaining by what they call "hook and crook,"

And what the moralists call overreaching,

A decent living. The Virginians look

Upon then with as favorable eyes

As Gabriel on the devil in Paradise.

 

But these are but their outcasts. View them near

At home, where all their worth and pride is placed;

And there their hospitable fires burn clear,

And there the lowliest farm-house hearth is graced

With manly hearts, in piety sincere,

Faithful in love, in honor stern and chaste,

 In friendship warm and true, in danger brave,

Beloved in life, and sainted in the grave.

 

And minds have been there nurtured, whose control

Is felt even in their nation's destiny;

Men who swayed senates with a statesman's soul,

And looked on armies with a leader's eye;

Names that adorn and dignify the scroll,

 

Page 19

Whose leaves contain their country's history,

And tales of love and war listen to one

Of the Green-Mountaineer the Stark of Bennington.

 

When on that field his band the Hessians fought,

Briefly he spoke before the fight began:

"Soldiers! those German gentlemen are bought

For four pounds eight and seven pence per man,

By England's king; a bargain as is thought.

Are we worth more? Let's prove it now we can;

For we must beat them, boys, ere set of sun,

Or MARY STARK"S A WIDOW!" It was done.

 

 

A piano solo by Miss Geneva Stark was pleasingly rendered, after which William H. Geer of Lebanon, addressed the company. Mr. Geer said:

 

COUSIN PRESIDENT AND ALL THE COUSINS PRESENT:

We have met to honor our ancestors and draw closer the ties of kinship among the members of the Stark Family, so widely scattered to-day; and we do well to honor such an ancestry as we now study the history of. it is interesting and profitable to look back upon the early settlement of the country. Our ancestors came to these shores not in search of gold like the rush to California in "49," or the rich mines of the Klondike in more recent years, but they endured a wearisome voyage of three months or more, and in the case of the Pilgrims, landing a long distance from where they intended. They came in the interest of liberty   not the liberty of the

 

Page 20

outlaw to do as he pleased, but the liberty to do right and worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience.

Aaron Stark came to this country in 1653* thirty-three years after the landing of the Pilgrims, and seventeen years after the settlement of Connecticut; hence he must have taken the land in its wild natural state, as occupied by the Indians. He was in King Phillip's war**, perhaps the most terrible war New England has endured, as its very existence trembled in the balance for a time. Such were the hardships and perils our ancestors endured to bequeath to us this beautiful, happy and peaceful land, as we have it to-day; and an American audience will readily agree that America is the best land on the face of the earth to live in, and there never was a better time to live in the world than 1903. There is, therefore, a great weight of responsibility resting on this generation, to transmit this fair inheritance, unsullied, to the ages to come. If the same principles of right and justice are adhered to in the century to come, as in the ages past, we may look for as great an advancement in all that goes to make life happy and worth the living in the century to come, as in the century past, under the blessing of the same Almighty, guiding hand.

The exercises were concluded with a solo entitled, "Answer," by Miss Della Stark of North Lyme, after which the motion to adjourn was unanimously carried.

After an elaborate dinner, which was served in the

hall, the time was spent socially until the gathering dispersed; each and all carrying with them only pleasant memories of the Eight Annual Reunion
