Notes for Stephen COLVIN


Main Source:  Source:  Marilyn Solari through emails in Dec 2007

Marily Solari writes:  "On the one hand, we know quite a bit aboutStephen. On
the other hand, there is much we dont know about him. Wedo not know the name
of his wife, either given or maiden, and he mayhave had more than one wife in
Hampshire Co., VA. In 1775, hisbrother, Vincent, deeded the 369 acres of land
in Hampshire Co., VA[which Vincent had inherited from their father] to Stephen
for fiveshillings and a peppercorn.” Basically, Vincent gave that land
toStephen. By this time, Vincent was living in what eventually
becameWashington Co., PA. When Stephen finally sold that land on the
SouthBranch of the Potomac River near Romney to William Fox on 8 Oct 1795[Deed
Book 10:246], no wife is mentioned in the deed. It is presumedshe was
deceased".

Records pertaining to Stephen Calvin:

StephenCalvin, Application No. 3778, for 300 acres on the west side of
theMonongahala about 1-1/2 miles from the mouth of Pigeon Creek includinghis
improvements. Dated 26 Aug 1769, Recorded Book F:229. [Note: Sincethere is
nothing to indicate that Stephen ever lived in the WashingtonCo., PA area,
then called West Augusta District, VA, it is probablethat this is the land his
younger brother, Luther, later occupied.Also applying on 26 Aug 1769 was
Vincent Calvin, Joseph Furman[Vincent’s stepson], Jas. Calvin and the
Deckers – Joseph, Moses,Tobias, John and Abram.]"

Note: I believe Elisabeth Calvin was Stephen’s mother rather than hiswife. A
wife would not be incurring debts in her own name in that timeperiod. Stephen

NOTE: When Stephen left Hampshire Co. either late in 1795 or early in1796, he
went first to Mason Co., KY where his brother, Capt. LutherCalvin, was living.
He had apparently arranged for Luthers son, JamesCalvin, to act as his agent
to purchase property for Stephen on theOhio side of the Ohio River.

Ohio Historical Society, Microfilm GR5311: Local Records, ClermontCounty Clerk
of Courts, Vols. A-D, Supreme Court Record 1801-1841:Pleas heard before the
Honorable Thomas Scott Esq., Chief Judge and the Hon. William W. Irwin and
Ethan Allen Brown Esqs., Judges of theSupreme Court of the State of Ohio at
the Court House in Williamsburgh– May term of the year 1813 and of this
State the 11th. BernardThompson and John Calvin vs. Lucas Sullivant in
Chancery. [Sullivantwas trying to claim property belonging to Bernard Thompson
and JohnCalvin. Hence, the suit.]

This is an extremely lengthy suit. Briefly, it states that on the 24thof Sept.
1785, John Crawford, heir of Col. William Crawford, dec’d,,passed his bond
or obligation for a valuable consideration togetherwith John Harrison,
security, for the conveyance of 1,000 acres ofland which John Crawford was
entitled to as heir of the said decedentfor military service, to Adamson and
Josiah Fannihill in the “now”County of Clermont, on the waters of Straight
Creek, Lot #664,adjoining land of Robert Breckenridge. Josiah Fannihill
thentransferred the land entirely to Richard Applegate and James Calvin.On
July 24, 1796, Applegate sold his interest in the land to BernardThompson, and
on July 16, 1796, James Calvin transferred his interestin the land to Stephen
Calvin who has since departed this life, havingdevised his interest in the
said land to “your Petitioner, JohnCalvin.” The transfer reads:

“For Value Received without recourse on us we do sign over all ourright
title interest and claim of the within obligation to StephenCalvin as Witness
our hands and seals this sixteenth day of July 1796.Signed: James Calvin.
Signed Nancy Calvin [wife of James]. Wit: JohnCalvin & Amos Ellis.

I can’t definitely identify the witness John Calvin because Stephen’sson,
John, was only about age 12 or 14 in 1796 which was not yet oflegal age for
witnessing such a document. However, I find it hard todoubt that this was
Stephen’s son, John. Capt. Luther didn’t have ason named John.

Scioto Co., OH Deeds Index [court house research of George W. Colvin,Corning,
OH]:
Stephen Colvin [sic] has many deeds recorded, beginning on 24 Sept1806 when
Stephen sold 539 acres to Johnson Barkelow [Vol. ABC:103]and ending on 26 July
1807 when he sold 101-1/2 acres to George Towers[Vol. ABC: 187] and 27 July
1807 when he sold 82-1/2 acres to AndyDavisson [Vol. ABC: 164].
The text of the deed dated 26 July 1807 reads: “This Indenture madethe
twenty sixth day of July 1807 between Stephen Colvin of the countyof Greenup
and State of Kentucky of the one part and George Towers ofthe County of
Harrison and State of Virginia of the other part – sumof $350 – land in
Scioto Co., part of a Fraction Number purchased byJohnson Barkelow and Stephen
Colvin, patented in 1806.” The deed issigned by John [his X mark] Colvin.
Scioto Co. Recorder, Irene Ashley,Portsmouth, OH, says she didn’t kow why
John signed the deed insteadof Stephen unless Stephen was unable to sign his
own name or unable tobe there at the time. Stephen had heretofore always
signed his namerather than making his mark. Stephen was quite possibly near
death atthis point and too ill to conduct business for himself and perhaps
hadgiven John power of attorney to conclude these transactions for him.In the
Scioto Co. deeds above, Stephen Calvin’s residence is alwaysgiven as Greenup
Co., KY. I would conclude, since Stephen does notappear in 1810 KY census
records as head of household and was not inhis son John’s household either,
that he died between 1807 [if not IN1807] and 1810."

"History of Greenup County, Kentucky," by Nina Mitchell Biggs.Evansville,
Ind., Unigraphic, 1975. “Old Times” by Rev. James Gilruth[from a newspaper
article]:
"Next above [Josiah Davidson or “Short Si”] settled Stephen Colvin.His
wife’s name I never knew. Their children were John – and two otherboys,
whose names I have forgotten, both of whom were pralectic [sic]to an extent
that rendered them incapable of business. John marriedMargaret Davidson and
made a first class citizen. Mr. Colvin [i.e.,Stephen] was a farmer and owned
slaves. He, in connection with agentleman by the name of Barkley [i.e.,
Barkelow], who lived at Rumla[i.e. Romney], Va., bought of Congress all that
fine bottom land inthe lower end of Lawrence county, between Luke Kelly’s
section and theFrench Grant. He kept the best blooded horses of any man in all
thisregion of country, and furnished a number of valuable stallions
whichproved of much use in those early days. From his house and that
of“Short Si” Davidson’s was obtained the best view of the Hanging Rock."

114-115.STEPHEN COLVIN  ..............(7) StephenCOLVIN, son of Sheldon and
Sarah (RANDALL) COLVIN, was born in thetown of Cranston, in Pippin Orchard, on
February 24, 1821. He waseducated in the schools of the town, attending during
the few shortwinter months, and leaving in the spring as did all farmers sons
ofthe period in New England to help with the work on the farm. Despitethese
disadvantages in education, however, he found time for study. Hewas an apt
student of mathematics, of an inventive turn of mind, and the wide knowledge
of mathematics and mechanics, which he gained inearly years later, stood him
in good stead in his business career. Atan early age he learned the trade of
machinist at Black Rock, in theValley section of Warwick, and later entered
the machine shop of PerezPECK at Anthony. At a later date he was employed with
Asa SISSON,builder of the once well-known SISSON Loom, in Anthony. Under
PerezPECK and SISSON both inventors of considerable genius, Mr. COLVINreceived
training of great value. He familiarized himself thoroughlywith every detail
of loom manufactured by Perez PECK. In 1862, inpartnership with several
gentlemen among whom were Alden WILLIAMS andCharles CASE, Mr. COLVIN founded
the firm of S. COLVIN & Company. InDecember 1862, the firm began the
manufacture of the celebrated COLVINloom, which within a short period came
into very general use in NewEngland and throughout the South. The business
grew to very largeproportions, and under the direction of Mr. COLVIN was one
of the mostsuccessful enterprises of its kind in Rhode Island. LODOWICK
andBRAYTON became half-owner of the firm and the plant was removed
toRiverpoint, RI where the business was conducted successfully until thedeath
of Mr. COLVIN.Although widely known and eminently respected inbusiness and
financial circles in Rhode Island, the late StephenCOLVIN, as far as was
possible for a man of his responsibilities,remained a private citizen. He was
a Republican in politicalaffiliation, but in no sense of the word an office
seeker. A keenstudent of the times, he was deeply interested in national and
localissues, and espoused every movement for the advancement of theinterests
of the Valley. He was essentially a worker, detestingidleness. His success in
life was distinctly the result of his ownindomitable perseverance and energy.
The strictest integritycharacterized his every transaction in business and he
was widelyknown for the fairness and justice of his dealings with men. For
manyyears prior to his death he was a director of the Phenix TrustCompany, and
the Phenix National Bank of Phenix, RI and he was also astockholder in other
local enterprises. He was a member of WarwickLodge, Ancient Free and Accepted
Masons.On May 6, 1868, Mr. COLVINmarried at Phenix, RI, Clara A. TURNER
daughter of Charles P. andCaroline (HALE) TURNER. Mrs. COLVIN, who survives
her husband, residesat the COLVIN home in Riverpoint, RI. Mr. and Mrs. COLVIN
were theparents of the following children: 1. Dr. Stephen Sheldon COLVIN,
bornMarch 29, 1869; a graduate of Worcester Academy in the class of 1887,and
from Brown University in 1891; on completing his studies he wasemployed for
about a year on the "Providence Journal!" and the"Telegram;" in 1895 he went
to Berlin, where he pursued a course ofstudy for several months, later going
to Strasburg, where in May 1897,he was granted the degree of PH.D; on his
return to America, Dr.COLVIN taught at Worcester English High School for four
years; in 1901he was called to the chair of Philosophy and Natural Theology of
theUniversity of Illinois, at Champaign, Ill. Where he remained about
tenyears, then came to Brown University. Dr. COLVIN married (first) Oct.18,
1891, Edna BOOTHMAN, who died January 19, 1893; he married(second) July 23,
1895, Eva Mable COLLINS, of Providence; they are theparents of one son,
Sheldon David born Sept.19, 1896 in Strasburg,Germany; 2. Sara Hale, born Aug.
29, 1878; was a graduate of BrownUniversity in the class of 1899; she married

OBITUARY:  "Pawtuxet Valley Daily Times"  Feb. 1904
STEPHEN COLVIN
Stephen COLVIN, mechanic, inventor and manufacturer and one of thebest known
citizens of the Pawtuxet Valley, died at his home atRiverpoint yesterday
afternoon. The deceased was sitting in his chairat his handsome home on Allen
street when he succumbed to an attack ofheart failure. Dr. A. G. SPRAGUE, who
lives but a few rods distant,was summoned and arrived about five minutes
later. He found that thedeceased, who was in his 83 year, and had been
gradually failing for ayear or two, had died of heart disease. A singular
circumstanceconnected with the death of the aged inventor was related by
hisbrother-in-law, Mr. TURNER. The attack came at precisely
12:15p.m.yesterday. Soon after the doctor arrived Mr. Turner removed the
watchfrom the pocket of the deceased and noted with not a little amazementthat
it had stopped at the very instant that death had come to itsowner, 12:15. A
moment later after being taken from the pocket itstarted to run again and
continued to run as if nothing had happenedto temporarily stop it.
Stephen COLVIN was born at Pippin Orchard, in the town of Cranston,Feb. 24,
1821, and would have been 83 years old if he had live untilnext Wednesday.
When a young man he removed to the Valley section ofWarwick, and later entered
the machine shop of Perez PECK at Anthony,where he learned the machinist's
trade. Later he was employed with thelate Lodowick, Brayton & Co. iron
founders, and with Asa SISSONbuilder of the once well-known Sisson Loom in the
old machine shop atAnthony.
It was while working here that he conceived the ideas which hedeveloped into a
number of inventions for the improvement of the powerloom for the weaving of
cotton cloths. The COLVIN loom, named afterits inventor and embodying the
patented improvements which secured itsintroductions into hundreds of mills
North and South, was built for atime at Anthony, in what the men who worked
there used to call the old"Peep-toad shop." Then Mr. COLVIN associated himself
with Robert andWilliam BRAYTON and Horatio N. REMINGTON, and the Colvin
Machine Shopat Riverpoint was built and the business of loom manufacturing
carriedon until about two years ago, when soon after the death of
Mr.REMINGTON, the junior member of the firm, it was dissolved, and thedeceased
retired from active business. During the 40 years that themanufacture of the
Colvin loom was carried on thousands of them werebuilt, and it is safe to say
that no product of Pawtuxet Valleyingenuity and no Pawtuxet Valley name were
ever so widely distriubutedand known throughout the country as were the
invention and name ofthis quiet, modest and unassuming man who died at
Riverpointyesterday.
He meddled little in public affairs, although always keenly alive toeverything
affecting the progress and improvement of the community. Hewas a director in
the Phenix Trust Company at Phenix and a stockholderin one or two other local
enterprises. He was married to Miss Clara L.TURNER, a woman considereably his
junior, by whom he had threechildren, all of whom, with his widow survive him.
His eldest son, Dr.Stephen S. COLVIN is Professor of Philosophy and Natural
Theology atBrown University, and his daughter Miss Clara Hale COLVIN is the
wifeof Louis A. COLVIN, an iron founder at Worcester, Mass. Vincent L.,the
youngest son, is a student at Brown and lives at home.Notwithstanding his
disinclination to mingle unnecessarily in thesocial or political life of the
Valley, the deceased had many warmfriends, and it is believed not an enemy. He
was a descendant in thesixth generation from John COLVIN, who came from
England about 1775and settled at Darthmouth, Mass. and John Jr. who came to
Rhode Islandsettled in Cranston in 1710.

Colvin, Stephen S.
Stephen Sheldon Colvin (1869-1923), professor of educationalpsychology, was
born in Phenix, Rhode Island, on March 29, 1869. Heprepared for college at
Worcester Academy and graduated from Brownwith a bachelor of philosophy degree
in 1891. He was awarded a masterof arts degree upon examination in 1894.
During these years of studyhe also reported for the Providence Journal and the
Evening Telegramand taught rhetoric at Brown from 1892 until 1895, when he
went tostudy at the Universities of Berlin and Strasburg. His thesis for
hisPh.D. at Strasburg in 1897 was Schopenhauer’s Doctrine of
theThing-in-Itself and his Attempt to Relate it to the World ofPhenomena. He
taught English at Worcester Academy from 1897 to 1901,and continued his
studies under G. Stanley Hall at Clark University,becoming interested in
educational psychology. From 1901 to 1903 hewas assistant professor of
psychology at the University of Illinois.He returned to Brown for one year as
assistant professor of philosophybefore his return to the University of
Illinois, where in due time hebecame head of the department of psychology.
When he came back toBrown in 1912 he was the first professor of educational
psychology. In1919 he was also named director of the School of Education. He
gainednational recognition for developing intelligence tests and
fordisagreeing with Thomas A. Edison on Edison’s tests which were used
toscreen employees for manufacturing companies. Colvin introduced histests to
Brown, and according to his obituary notice in the ProvidenceJournal, “His
mental tests for students aroused much interestthroughout academic America,
and to his efforts along these linesBrown University owes its present position
of being the institutionwhich has had in operation mental testing in
connection witheducational guidance longer than any other college or
university inthe country.” He published The Learning Process in 1911,
HumanBehavior with William C. Bagley in 1913, and Introduction to HighSchool
Teaching, an extensively used teacher-training text-book, in1917. Colvin left
Brown in 1923 to become professor of education atTeachers College, Columbia,
where he had taught during the summer. Hedied suddenly from a heart ailment on

BURIAL:  Marilyn Solari, citing "Sandusky County, Ohio Cemeteries,Vol. 1,"
compiled by James R. and Janet L. Sims.

Note: Cemetery records give her age at death as 11 years, 9 months, 13days.
That would place her year of birth as 1828. However, Biblerecords state she
was born in 1831 and the 1830 census of John B.-6Colvin’s household shows
only one child in the family, a son under theage of 5 [George H. bc 1829].

SOURCE:  "History of Rhode Island- Biographies" page 365-366THEODOREHAMMETT
COLVIN     Theodore Hammett Colvin-As young men of twenty-sixyears, a molder
by trade, an experienced journeyman and foundryworker, Theodore Hammett Colvin
came to the city of Providence in1872. The business he then started caught the
full force of the panicof 1872-1877, and those five years were such as try
men's ability tothe limit. But he prevailed, and it is his pride that The
ColvinFoundry Company has weathered every financial storm and has neverfailed
to meet every obligation. Another record to be proud of is thefact that for
twenty-seven years he never had labor trouble, thatrecord then being broken by
a strike to unionize the plant. Mr. Colvinresisted, and in time the men
voluntarily agreed to work, rejoicing tofind their jobs open, as they had
found they were the best paid men inthe business, taking conditions into
consideration. He always kept inclose personal touch with every transaction
occurring throughout theworks, and to that fact much of his success may be
attributed. From1872 until January, 1916, he was supreme at the plant, then
havingbrought up his sons in the business, and thoroughly trained them
fortheir responsibilities, he sold his interest to them and retired,leaving
Clarence H. Colvin president of the company, and Charles T.Colvin, Treasurer.    
Theodore H. Colvin is of the seventh Americangeneration of the family founded
in New England by John Colvin, ofDartmouth, Mass., and Providence, RI, the
owner of a tract of fourthousand acres at Providence, where he died, November
28, 1729. Theline of descent is through the founder's son, Rev. James Colvin,
ofProvidence and Coventry, RI; his son Caleb Colvin of Coventry; his sonGeorge
Colvin of Coventry, a Revolutionary sailor, his widow Marydrawing a United
States pension; their son, George (2) Colvin; his sonHenry Colvin of
Plainfield Conn.; his son Theodore H. Colvin, ofProvidence, RI. Henry Colvin
born December 20, 1813, died December 14,1869, married Mary Ann Bennett, and
born May 11, 1808 died August 26,1892, surviving her husband twenty-three
years. Their children were:Frances S; Elizabeth deceased; Theodore Hammett, of
further mention;Elisha H. deceased, and Emily.     Theodore Hammett Colvin
was bornin Plainfield, Conn. April 26, 1846, now (1918) living in
Providence,RI retired. After school days were ended he began learning
themolder's trade at now Danielson, Conn., finishing his apprenticeshipin the
foundry owned by his kinsmen, Caleb and James Colvin, enteringtheir employ in
1864 and continuing until 1865. He worked as ajourneyman in Whitinsville,
Mass., for a few months, then in December1865, went to Worcester, Mass, where
his old employer had opened afoundry. He continued a molder at Worchester
until 1872 then came toProvidence, where the years, which have, since elapsed
have beenspent.     The first Providence venture in business was also
hislast, forty-four years having been spent in the same business. Thebeginning
was in 1872, when with his uncle, George Colvin, he formedthe firm, G. and
T.H. Colvin, and began a foundry business on DyerStreet moving to their own
plant on now West Exchange Street in 1873.The original firm continued until
1876, when George Colvin sold hisinterest to his nephew and retired. Theodore
H. Colvin continued thebusiness under his own name until 1896, then
incorporated as TheColvin Foundry Company, capitol $100,000. The business of
the companyconstantly increased, and in October 1897, the company erected a
newplant on Globe street, a large and modernly equipped foundry, on ofthe best
of its kind in New England. The business of the company isthe casting of
engine and machine parts; an extensive business havingbeen developed through
the energy and ability of Mr. Colvin during theforty-four years he was the
responsible head. He conceived an idea offusing imperfect casting, which would
otherwise have been thrown out,this resulting in a great saving and led to the
development of a largerepair business.     Hand in hand with the development
of a large andprofitable business, Mr. Colvin carried along plans for
itsperpetuation, and two sons were trained in its every detail, eachbeing in
time elected to official position. Came the time when thefounder, proud of his
work, felt that the time had come to retire, theson Clarence H. succeeded his
father as president, the other sonCharles T., continued as treasurer, the
change being made so quietlythat no friction developed in anticipation of the
event. He retired atthe age of seventy, having been "in the harness" from the
age ofeighteen, when he began learning the molder's trade. The success
whichcame to him was fairly earned and achieved through his own force
ofcharacter, perseverance, indomitable spirit and business genius. Hehad long
been a member of the New England Foundryman's Association,and he carried with
him into retirement the respect and esteem ofevery man with whom he came into
personal contact independent inpolitical thought, he has no affiliation. In
Free masonry he holds thedegrees of the York Rite, belonging to St. John's
Lodge No. 1 ofProvidence, Royal arch Chapter, and St. John Commandery,
KnightsTemplar. He is a member of Pomham Club.     Mr. COLVIN married(first)
in April 1868, Hannah Brown, they the parents of Charles T.whose sketch
follows. He married (second) in October 1876, Augusta L.Hammett, they the
parents of the Clarence H. whose sketch follows; andEarl born May 23, 1887,
