Judson Guiteau was the original settler in the
Northwest Territory. He was a third generation
American, being the grandson of Francis Guitteau,
who emigrated from England early in the Eighteenth
Century. Francis was in turn descendat from a
family of French Huguenots who sought religious
freedom first in Holland and then England. Francis
married Mary Lathrop Tyler in 1714 at Wallingford,
Conn. Descendants of their ten children are scattered
throughout the land. The eldest son, Joshua, married
Jerusha Judson in 1748 and moved to Woodbury,
Conn., where Judson was born in 1750.
In 1774, Judson married Patience Gaylord and they
had twelve children. During the Revolution Judson
rendered patriotic service by supplying provisions to the
soldiers. After the war he acquired shared in The Ohio
Company. In 1796 he sold his farm for one thousand pounds
and followed General Putnam to Marietta, where his
daughter Jerusha married the general's son William.
Judson and Patience both died buring a flu epidemic in
1823 and are buried in Mound Cemetery.
Judson's eldest son, Jonathan married Mary Lord and
secondly, Sarah Mills. Their descendants were
educators well known in the Toledo area. Jonathan's
brother, Benjamin married Maria, daughter of Colonel
Robert Taylor, in 1807, and they had a family of nine.
The eldest son, William, married Anthea Chapman, a
distant cousin of Johnny Appleseed, both descended
from Robert Chapman of Saybrook, Conn. The second
son, Francis Gaylord, married Sarah Fulton, and the
third Benjamin Franklin, married Sarah's sister Mary Anne.
William farmed on Duck Creek, while Francis stayed in
the city. Benjamin moved to Illinois and served as a
lieutenant of cavalry during the Civil War.
William and Anthea had six children, losing two at an
early age. Their eldest was Hiram Hamilton, a carpenter
by trade, who servled as a sergeant in the 92nd
RegimentOVI during the Civil War. Afterwards he was
chief carpenter at the state Hospital in Athens. He
married Mary Machim in 1875 and sired an only child,
Grace Anthea in 1880. Twelve years later Mary
divorced Hamilton, and he retired to live with his
sister Adeline and their niece, Ida Belle Hazen, on
Anthea's Hill Top Farm, in Whipple. Hamilton died there
in 1915.
Grace moved to Louisville, Ky with her mother, and from
that city she entered Vassar College, graduated in 1904.
Grace married Roy Augustus Dye in 1910 and moved to
Washington, D.C., where they both held Civil Service
appointments. Later they moved to Aliquippa, Penn.,
where they raised three children. Peter Hamilton, the
eldest, married Anne Witt and had William and Patricia.
Roy Junior marriec Louisa Cummins and sired Harriet,
Roy, John, James, Nancy and Charles. Anthea
married Jack Hugos and had John and Carol. Roy
served as a U.S. Navy lieutenant during World War II
and is a sales executive for Republic Steel. Roy is
proud of his family and his granddaughters, Elizabeth
and Katherine, and his grandson, Roy Augustus Dye IV.
Although, Grace's family never lived in Marietta, history
calls us home.

genealogies - by Samuel Orcutt - Albany: J. Munsell, 1878
page: 516
Elijah Lyman, M.D.
Was the son of David and Mary (Brown) Lyman of New
Hartford, Conn., born August 16, 1773. He studied with
Dr. Samuel Woodward, and commenced practice as a
physician in Warren. In 1807 he purchased the house and
lot of Dr. William Bostwick in Torrington near Levi Thralls
(now Willard Burges), and settled here as a physician. In
1813, he was elected deacon of the Torrington church, and
was a man of great excellency of character and moral worth,
and was highly exteemed as a physician and citizen. He was
noted for his success as a physician, in the treatment of
spotted fever in 1812 and 13, which prevailed at that time
to a fearful extent in the town. In 1818, he sold his place
and removed to Warren, where he died Nov. 5, 1819,
aged forty-six years. Dr. Lyman's grand mother was Mary
Gitteau, daughter of Francis Gitteau, a distinguished physician
of Woodbury, who was banished from France during the
persecutions of the Huguenots in connection with
St. Bartholomew's day, and his mother was a relation of
Owen Brown, the father of Capt. John Brown.


36. DR. FRANCIS GUITEAU

Oneida Historical Society Year Book
Francis Guiteau Jr., was not licensed to practice medicine
when he first came to this county; and so conclude from the
notice of his death in 1825, in the Baptist Register, which
speaks of him as having been a practicing physician for
nearly or about thirty years. When Deerfield was organized
into a town-at the first town meeting held in the Spring of
1798, Dr. Francis Guiteau, Jr., was elected its first supervisor,
re-elected in 1799 and again in 1800. About 1801 or 1802
he moved across the river into Utica and there practiced
medicine and a portion of the time kept a drug store, some of
the time with Dr. Solomon G. Wolcott as partner, until 1815.
In the last named year, Dr. Guiteau bought of W.G. Tracy,
the premises next westerly of the present residence of C.M.
Dennison, and thereupon removed to Whitesboro, and
resided in that village until his death, which occurred after a
brief illness, April 18, 1825, at the age of fifty-nine years and
five months. Dr. Guiteau was a worthy and respected
citizen, and as a physician, stood at the head of his profession.
He was one of the founders in 1806, of the Oneida County
Medical society, and was elected its president in 1808, and
again in 1809. He was twice elected its vice-president, and
three times chosen censor. In the outset of this sketch, mention
was made of the religious tendencies and the enthusiasm of the
Huguenots. The records of the Baptist church at Whitesboro
show that Dr. Guiteau united with that church in 1809, and all
accounts agree that he was a firm believer in, and a zealous
advocate of the doctrines of that church.......Dr. Guiteau
was the father of eleven children, ten of whom, five sons and
five daughters, lived to maturity. The given names of three of the
sons were the same as those of their uncles....Calvin, Luther and
Abram.

(Dr. Francis Guiteau jr.) was a descendant of one of those exiles
from France, the Huguenots. His father was a physician in
Pittsfield and afterward in Lanesboro, Mass., but passed his
later years in Deerfield in this county. Francis was the eldest of
several sons, of whom two, Calvin, the surveyor, and Dr. Luther
Guiteau, of Trenton, became early denizens of Oneida County.
He moved into the town of Deerfield and assumed his professional
charge as early as 1792. His circuit of practice was extensive,
embracing not merely Utica and its environs, but sometimes
transcending the present bounds of the county. He occupied a
farm east of the Corners, the same which was afterward held by
Abraham Walton, and he was the first supervisor of the town.
April 4, 1803, he announces that ill health induces him to call
for a settlement; but in July of the same year he enters into
partnership as practitioner and druggist with Dr. Solomon Wolcott.
They built each a house on Whitesboro street a little west of the
Globe Hotel. Their announcements occurred from time to time in
the village weeklies until January 1807, when they desolved and
Dr. Guiteau devoted himself exclusively to practice. He was
deemed skillful and held in high esteem as a physician, and
his practice was considerable. His only near rivals were Dr. Alexander
Coventry, who was still a resident of Deerfield, and Drs. Hasbrouck
and Stockman, of Utica, both of whom as well as Dr. Wolcott were
in part druggists also. In manners Dr. Guiteau was genial and
pleasant, but decided in his opinions and free in the expression of
them. A leading man among the Baptists, and a zealous advocate
their principals of belief, he was sensitive to any opposition to his
religious views. He was also a strong Democrat. His death occurred
about 1823. He had ten children, five sons and five daughters.

Dr. Francis Guiteau, Jr. a descendant of one of those exiles of France,
the Huguenots, who were driven from their country by the cruel and
self-ruinous decreeof Louis XIV. His father was a physician in Pittsfield
and afterwards in Lanesboro, Mass., but passed his latest years in
Deerfield in this county. Francis was the eldest of several sons, of whom

but sometimes transcending the present bounds of the county. He
occupied a farm east of the Corners, the same which was afterward
held by Abraham Walton, and he was the first supervisor of the town.
As Mr. Walton was living upon the farm in 1801, it is probable this is
about the date of Dr. Guiteau's removal to Utica.
April 4, 1803, he announces that ill health induces him to call for a
settlement; but in July of the same year he enters into partnership
as practitioner and druggist with Dr. Solomon Wolcott. Their store
and office was at first near what is now the corner of Burchard and
Whitesboro streets, but was soon exchanged for a site on the east
side of Genesee, a few doors above the square. They built each a
house on Whitesboro street a little west of the Globe Hotel.
Their announcements occurred from time to time in the village
weeklies until January 1807, when they desolved and Dr. Guiteau
devoted himself exclusively to practice. He was deemed skillful
and held in high esteem as a physician, and his practice was
considerable. His only near rivals were Dr. Alexander Coventry, who

of Utica, both of whom as well as Dr. Wolcott were in part druggists
also.Dr. G was six feet in height and rather spare of flesh, erect and
active, of fine fibre, and well fitted to endure labor and fatigue. In
manners Dr. Guiteau was genial and pleasant, but decided in his
opinions and free in the expression of them. A leading man among
the Baptists, and a zealous advocate their principals of belief, he was
sensitive to any opposition to his opposition to his religious views.
He was also a strong Democrat. His death occurred

religious views. He was also a strong Democrat. During the war he
invented an explosive missile designed for sinking ships, for which he
received a grant from the government. About 1814 he took up residence
in Whitesboro, but was still retained as a medical advisor of many
families of Utica. A few years before his death, he was thrown from his
sulky upon the frozen ground and taken up insensible. He so far
recovered to be able to visit a few patients about the village of
Whitesboro, but was never able to support fatigue or mental excitement
afterwards. His death occurred about 1823. He had ten children,
five sons and five daughters, of whom only one, Luther Guiteau, cashier
of the Freeport Bank, Illinois, is now living.

Our County and It's People
Chapter 32, The Town of Deerfield
The first town meeting for Deerfield was held at the house of Ezra Payne, an early settler, April 3, 1798, where the following officers were elected, the list embracing a large number of prominent pioneers:

Supervisor, Dr. Francis Guiteau; town clerk, Isaac Brayton, jr.; justices of the peace, Abram Camp, James S. Kipp; assessors, Daniel Biddlecom, Ebenezer Steward, Phineas Camp; commissioners of highways, William Hallock, Calvin Guiteau, Hazard Sherman; poormasters, Olney Pierce, Ezra Payne,; constables, Heh Foot, Wm.

Hallock, Nicholas G. Weaver.
While these early settlements were being made and the simple government of town affairs being established, settlers were coming rapidly into Whitestown, the bridge was built across the river to the site of Utica in 192, roads were surveyed, and general progress was made. Calvin Guiteau was a pioneer and a surveyor, and many of the early roads were laid out by him; he came to the town about 1792, when his brother, Dr. Francis Guiteau, jr., also arrived. (See chapter on the Medical Profession, XXIII.)
The following list of supervisors of this town from the beginning contains the names of many prominent citizens not already mentioned:

Francis Guiteau, town clerk


From A History of the Families of Edward Tinsley Ray and Isabel Douglass Curtis,
by Peter Ray
Guiteau
Francis Guiteau, Jr., removed from Massachusetts to Remsselaer County, New York, sometime before 1792, when he arrived in Deerfield Corners to practice medicine. Deerfield was organized into a town in 1798, and at the first town meeting Francis was elected town supervisor. He was reelected to this post in 1799 and 1800.
About 1801 Francis moved across the river to Utica, where he continued his medical practice for about 14 years. On April 4, 1803, he announced that ill-health induced him to call for a settlement of his finances, but in July of that year he entered into a partnership as practitioner and druggist with another physician. He built a store on the east side of the Genessee, a few doors above the square, and owned a house on Whitesboro Street. The partnership dissolved in 1807 and Francis devoted himself entirely to his practice until the outbreak of the War of 1812, when he developed an explosive for sinking ships and was given a grant by the U.S. government for this work. In 1806 he was one of the founders of the Oneida County Medical Society and was its president in 1808 and 1809.
About 1815 Francis removed to Whitesboro, although he was retained as medical advisor to a number of Utica families. He had already become a member of the Baptist Church at Whitesboro in 1809, and his Baptist convictions were said to be so strong, that he once declared that “if an angel of light should tell him any other form was right, he would not believe it.”
Several years before his death, Francis was thrown from his sulky onto the frozen ground and lost consciousness. He recovered enough to be able to continue his practice at a reduced level, but he was never able to support fatigue or mental excitement after this time.
Bagg’s Pioneers of Utica calls Francis “a zealous and leading Baptist and sensitive to any opposition to his religious views; he was also a strong Democrat, genial and pleasant in manners, but decided in his opinions and free in the expression of them.” Although he seems to have been an unusually able and strong minded individual, there is considerable evidence of insanity among his children and grandchildren.
Francis was b. Nov. 13, 1765 (Lanesboro, MA); d. April 18, 1825 (Whitesboro, NY); m. Aug. 20, 1789 (Lanesboro, MA), Hannah Wilson (da. of James Wilson,7 q.v.), who was b. Aug. 9, 1768 (Charlotte, Vt.) and d. Dec. 11, 1845 (Watertown, NY). Children:

Mary was the first born, and was about two years old
when her father came to the "Whitestown country;"
in 1812 she married John McNeil, then of Charlotte,
Vermont, but the McNeil family subsequently lived
across the river in Deerfield in this county, as old
residents inform me. He was father of Judge John
McNeil, of Port Huron, Michigan. An inscription on
a tombstone in Whitestown cemetery tells us that
Mary died August 27, 1816, in the twenty-seventy
year of her age; she died of consumption.

Early western New York postal history is not completely
available in government records, as they were partly
destroyed in the burning of the General Post Office at
Washington during the War of 1812. It has been determined,
however, that a post office was established at Buffalo by the
name of Buffalo Creek as a private office during the latter
part of the year 1804, and that Erastus Granger was appointed
postmaster. He received the emoluments of his office as a
compensatation for transporting the mail to and from his
post office and Niagara post office. The nearest offices then
being Batavia on the east, Niagara on the north, and Erie, PA.,
on the west. Mr. Granger was a Collector of Customs, and Indian
Agent at Buffalo and served as postmaster until 1818, when he
was superseded by Julius Guiteau.

69. FRANCIS WILSON GUITEAU

Oneida Historical Society Year Book
The Guiteau Family
Francis W. was the second son of Dr. Guiteau, ahd he is
the one of whom mention was made on the assassin's
trial as having been engaged when a young man in a duel
and died in an insane asylum. A correspondent, now
eighty-six years old, a former resident of Utica, and who
well knew and well remembers Dr. Guiteau and all of his
children, and whose mind and memory seem unimpaired,
writes to the following effect of that affair. When quite
young, Frank went to live with his brother Julius in Buffalo.
He became involved in a love affair, and challenged, his
rival to fight a duel. As a joke upon the challenger, the pistols
were loaded only with powder, and the shirt bosom of the
rival stained with blood, or with a liquid resemblin blood, and
then concealed from sight. The parties met, Frank fired
and the rival fell; as the "bloody shirt" was exposed to view,
Frank thought he had committed murder, and was so
frightened and conscience stricken, or else ashamed and
mortified at the hoax played upon him, that his nervous
system was prostrated, and his health became so much
impaired that he returned to his home in Whitesboro; afterwards
he went codfishing or on a whaling voyage. Another
correspondent, a former resident of Whitesboro, writes me that
he well remembers Frank, when the latter was a young man
and expert clerk in the office of Thomas Walker, of Utica-
that Frank wrote a spendid hand, was of pleasing address and
manners, dressed well, stylish and "nobby" in his appearance,
and saying that he had just returned from a three years' cruise
as captain's clerk; that was the last that correspondent ever
saw of him. The records of the Bloomingdale Asylum show that
Francis W. Guiteau died insane in that institution in December,
1829, at the age of twenty-nie, his insanity caused by mortification
at fighting a sham duel. He was in that asylum three months.
It was stated on the trial at Washington that Francis had been
insane fourteen years; that would make him about fifteen when
that sham duel was fought.

77. HARRIET BACON

Harriet Bacon's Sampler, ca. 1804–1805
In the late eighteenth century, family identity edged out community as the focus of personal association, giving rise to the great popularity of family records in both ink and needlework formats.36 Harriet Bacon never finished her family record sampler, made about 1804 or 1805, although she left plenty of room for her eventual remaining siblings. The fourth of nine children born to Samuel Bacon and Anna Guiteau, Harriet apparently never married, and her life is difficult to trace.37

Her parents lived in Lanesboro, near Pittsfield in northern Berkshire County, Massachusetts, for many years after her father's Revolutionary War service as a private. They eventually moved to Trenton, Oneida County, New York, where Anna's brother, Luther Guiteau, practiced medicine and was Samuel's attending physician at his death in 1840.38 Samuel had been a Revolutionary War pensioner for several years before he died. Unfortunately, the Bacons are not recorded in the annals of published histories of Trenton. This may reflect another move for Anna after Samuel died or the lack of descendants in the community over time to ensure their place in the local history.

Harriet submitted her sampler in 1841 on her mother's behalf because the written family record on which it was originally based was long since lost. She "worked" her sampler "when she was either 10 or 11 years of age."39 Despite the sampler's unfinished state, something compelled Harriet or her parents to keep it. Had she become ill while working on it, never to catch up? We can only guess. The sampler, however, helped ensure the successful outcome of Anna's claim for a pension of $23.33 a year because it included the date of her marriage to Samuel.

44. REV. NORMAN GUITEAU

Oneida Historical Society Year Book 1881-1886 (article on the Guiteau
family)
Another brother (of Dr Francis Guiteau Jr) was Rev. Norman Guiteau;
he joined the Baptist church in Whitesboro in 1813, as the records
of that socity attest. In 1819 and 1820 he was pastor of the Baptist
church in Trenton.

Untitled History of the town of Watertown, Jefferson County, New York
pg 749-753
The Watertown Baptist Church was organized May 29, 1823, with 17 members, by a council representing the Black River Association, and Elder Norman Guiteau was the first pastor. Their first house of worship, a wooden structure, was built in 1828. This gave place, in 1837, to another wooden building, which was burned in 1846, and the same year the present brick structure, corner of State street and Public Square, was erected at a cost of about $10,000. It will comfortably seat 400 persons, and is valued, including grounds and other church property, at $16,000. The present pastor is Rev. C. E. Maxfield. The Sunday-school has a membership of 250.

The first society of this kind in the county was formed at
Copenhagen, in February, 1825, and consisted of twelve
members. It grew out of prosecutions for the sale of ardent
spirits without a license, under an act passed February 18,
1820, requiring poor-masters to recover certain fines for the
benefit of the poor. These suits were instituted by Levi
Robbins, poor-master, and although judgement was got,
the town would release the parties convicted, by a vote
of town meeting. The discussions which these measures
raised, led to the formation of a society, consisting of
Norman Guiteau, Levi Robbins, William C. Lawton, David
Goodenough, Dr. John Loud, Austin H. Robbins, Harris
Bronson, Edward S. Robbins, William Keen, J. Stoddard,
and two others not remebered by our informant

The Baptist Church of Copenhagen was formed in April, 1808,
and at first consisted of eleven members. The Rev. Peleg
Card had settled here the year before as a cloth-dresser and
remained as minister until he was released in 1819. At about
the beginning, the Rev. Peter P. Roots, a missionary, visited
the place, and remained several days. Mr. Card was succeeded
by the Rev. Stephen Parsons in 1819; Rev. Norman Guiteau in
1822; Rev. Thomas A Warner, in 1826......

erected a small wooden church on Factory street, which was sold
to the Catholics. During the same year the society erected a
church at the east end of Public Square, which was dedicated
Jan. 10, 1838, and burned March 8, 1848. The present church was
soon after erected on the same ground.

OBITUARY
Over 102 Years Old

At the residence of her son-in-law, Enoch Candee, in Holland Patent, late Wednesday night, occurred the death of Mrs. Nancy White Guiteau, aged 102 years, 7 months, and 9 days. The deceased was a native of Middletown, Conn. She was the daughter of Samuel White, and was the last of a family of two sons and four daughters. In 1816 Mr. White and his family removed to the town of Trenton, locating on a farm in Holland Patent, , and the subject of this sketch was ever after a resident of the town. Her father, who died in 1833, had reached the age three-score and ten, and her mother, whose death occurred in 1851, had attained the age of 84 years. Her husband was Samuel Guiteau, a half brother of the late Dr. Luther Guiteau, sr. of Trenton village, and they were married a few years after the removal of the White family to the vicinity of Holland Patent. Mr. Guiteau died in 1857. They had four children, all of whom are now dead except Mrs. Enoch Candee, with whom the deceased had resided for 15 years. Mrs. Candee is about 70 years of age. Mrs. Guiteau’s last remaining sister, Mrs. Perry of Holland Patent, died about five years ago, aged 95 years and 6 months. Mrs. Guiteau united with the First Baptist church in Holland Patent upwards of 69 years ago and was ever after a valued member.

When a young woman she was known far and wide as the best horsewoman in this part of the country, and on one occasion is said to have ridden from Holland Patent to New Hartford, when the roads were so poor that she had to raise her foot from stirrup to keep it out of the mud.

At the age of 96 years Mrs. Guiteau suffered a severe attack of pneumonia, from which, strange to say, she made a good recovery, due no doubt to her wonderful vitality. Until within a short time she had been able to take her meals at the family table, take charge of her apartments and even render some assistance about the house.

Besides her daughter, she leaves the following relatives; Mrs. Mary Wells, Holland Patent; William N Candee, Buffalo; Charles M. White, Mrs. James N. Brown, Holland Patent; Mrs. Dr. C. S. McLoughlin, Ticonderoga; Mrs. D. Frank Powell, Stittville.
