IN MEMORIAM
Died in Hingham, Feb. 9, Mrs. J. C., wife of Rev. Daniel Bowen
Only a little more than thirteen months have elapsed since our belovedfriend
Mrs. Bowen was introduced as the bride of our new pastor. Itwas on the evening
of his ordination-day. All the parish assembled towelcome them both. Mrs.
Bowen was a stranger; but such was thesweetness of her manners, and fitness of
her deportment, towards all,that all went from her presence sure they had
found in her a friend.The old man of fourscore and the little child of four
years rejoicedthat they had seen her. It was the power of self-forgetfulness,
thelegitimate result of a heart tenderly awake to the welfare of all towhom
her influence might extend, that made her the blessing she was tothe whole
parish. The sick and neglected knew they had in her asympathizing friend. The
children of the parish cherish her memorywith affection; for, in this "little
year,' she had fixed her thronein their hearts. To her Sunday-school class she
went with the samedevotedness which she carried into every duty; and those
little oneswho gathered around her will not soon forget the accents of
lovingwisdom which fell from her lips. On how many world-worn spirits herwords
of affectionate interest fell as dew up on the parched ground,softening their
hearts! "How strange it is," said one of these, "thatMrs. Bowen cares so much
for me! She always says some pleasant thingthat makes me feel happy whenever I
see her; and she seems to do itbecause she cares for me, and cannot help doing
it." This was thesecret of that power which her every word possessed. She gave
herself;never forgetting, "the gift without the giver is bare." It was
thisatmosphere of love diffused over her whole life that caused herdeparture
from earth to put, not the parish only, but the wholecommunity in mourning. We
feel that a sacred presence is withdrawn,that we are poorer, now that she is
gone. With her undimmed spiritualvision was combined a deeper intellectual
culture than is often found.Her discrimination of character, her discernment
of ethicaldistinctions, was delicate. Her love of nature was a
pervadinginfluence. There was nothing in her manners that we wished to
alter.Other persons have excellences at the expense of defects; but
hercharacter was symmetrical. Now that she is gone, our tender love hasbecome
a kind of worship. It will be long before the memory of that"tenement of
clay," still beautiful with the impress of the departedspirit, will fade from
our hearts. We have spoken of her only inrelation to the parish and the
community at large. If our sorrow is soprofound, what must be the anguish in
that sanctuary which was herhome? May our stricken friend realize, in his sad
loneliness, that thepurity which loved him on earth still continues to love
him in thathigher sphere to which she has gone!

DEATH:  Social Security Death Index.  Birth:  12 Jul 1916.  Death:  24Aug 2001. 
Residence of record:  Gaithersburg, Montgomery, MD.  Cardissued:  Washington

OBITUARY:   "Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics"[Philadelphia, PA]
October 13, 2001http://www.siam.org/news/news.php?id=580
Obituaries:  Burton H. Colvin
Burton Houston Colvin, 85, former head of mathematics organizations atBoeing
and the National Bureau of Standards, and a past president ofSIAM, died of
prostate cancer on August 24, 2001 at his home inGaithersburg, Maryland. He
had struggled with the disease for fifteenyears. Colvin was born in West
Warwick, Rhode Island, on July 16,1916. He received AB and AM degrees from
Brown University in 1938 and1939, respectively, and a PhD in mathematics from
the University ofWisconsin at Madison in 1943, with a thesis titled The
ExpansionProblem Associated with a Third Order Ordinary Differential
Equation.During the next two years he served as a technical aide to
theNational Defense Research Committee, later to become the Office
ofScientific Research and Development. After the war he returned toacademia as
an instructor and then assistant professor of mathematicsat the University of
Wisconsin.
In 1951 he joined the Boeing Aircraft Company in Seattle, becominghead of the
Mathematics Laboratory of the newly created BoeingScientific Research
Laboratory (BSRL) in 1959. There he assembled anoutstanding group of applied
mathematicians and statisticians whofocused on problems of interest to the
aircraft industry. Among theconsultants who frequented BSRL at the time were
Victor Klee andGeorge Dantzig. The first program in information sciences at
BSRL wasdeveloped under Colvin's leadership, and he became director of theBSRL
Information Sciences Laboratory in 1967.
Among the highlights of Colvin's tenure at BSRL are the disproof ofthe d-step
conjecture for polyhedra by David Walkup and Victor Klee,path-breaking
analyses of random number generators by GeorgeMarsaglia, the balanced tree
concept of Rudolf Bayer and EdwardMcCreight, and the pioneering use of
symbolic algebra in orbitcalculations by André Deprit.
Colvin moved to the Washington, DC, area in 1972 to head the
AppliedMathematics Division of the National Bureau of Standards (now
theNational Institute of Standards and Technology). His profound insightsmade
him a vocal advocate for the complementarity of appliedmathematics and
computation in the physical sciences. He worked hardto modernize the local
computational capabilities. In 1978 he becamethe director of the newly
organized NBS Center for AppliedMathematics, a position he held until 1986. He
organized a new unit,the Scientific Computing Division, in 1978.
Also to his credit is the installation a few years later of the
firstsupercomputer at NBS. At NBS he continued the practice of attractingtop
experts as visitors and permanent staff members. He also forgednumerous
connections to other government agencies, such as theDepartment of
Transportation, the Post Office, the TreasuryDepartment, the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, and theDepartment of Energy, to which NBS provided
technical assistance.
He was the recipient of the U.S. Commerce Department's two highestawards:
Silver (1978) and Gold (1981) medals, for "consistentlyoutstanding management
of the applied mathematics program," and hereceived a Presidential Meritorious
Rank Award in 1980. He was afellow of the American Association for the
Advancement of Science(AAAS). Colvin was an active contributor to SIAM,
serving severalterms as a trustee (1962-65, 1967-78, and 1978-80). He was
SIAMpresident in 1971-72. During the early 70s, SIAM was exploring newways to
carry out its mission, recalls SIAM managing director emeritusI.E. Block;
prospective new programs included SIMS (the SIAM Institutefor Mathematics and
Society, founded in 1973) and a visiting lectureprogram that would acquaint
students with applications of mathematicsto real-world problems (still in
existence today as the SIAM VisitingLecturer Program). "Burt was unfailingly
wise, honest, andstraightforward during the extensive discussions of these
projects bythe board of trustees," Block says; "he brought to the board
hisunderstanding of the way government works, and of how governmentfunding
might be obtained for SIAM projects, always working to ensurethat they would
be launched with the best possible foundations."
Colvin served in other positions of national importance, includingadvisory
board chairman of the School Mathematics Study Group(1965-66), member of the
AAAS Council (1965-66), chairman of theConference Board of Mathematical
Sciences (1975-76), member of theCouncil of Scientific Society Presidents
(1975-78), and vice presidentof the National Physical Sciences Consortium
(1992-93).
Colvin also maintained an interest in higher education, and spokewidely about
the education and job experiences of nonacademicmathematicians. He served as
chair of the Task Force on TechnicalEducation (1968-69) and vice chair of the
Council on Science Education(1968-72). He was a consultant to the mathematics
department of KnoxCollege in Illinois, served on advisory committees of the
MarylandState Board of Higher Education, and was a past chairman of
theComputer Science Advisory Committee at Stanford University. From 1986until
his retirement in 1991, he held the position of director of theOffice of
Academic Affairs at the National Institute of Standards andTechnology.
At the center of Burt Colvin's being, his son Daniel writes, were abasic
goodness and a decency. "I see more clearly every day thiswonderful legacy,
and the way it has impacted our family and everyonewho knew him.
He had a piercing intellect, combined with a goodly dose of commonsense,
humor, and a willingness to say what needed to be said. Thesequalities served
him well in his professional life. Yet he seemedhappiest with pursuits that
reflected his humble New Englandbeginnings---painting the house, gardening,
maintaining an automobile,hiking in the Olympic Mountains. The important thing
was to do the jobright, be it an intellectual activity or a more physical one.
Hislegacy is a wonderful combination of attributes that live on in allwho knew
him."  His wife, Ann, died in 1983. In addition to his sonDaniel, he is
survived by two other sons, Thomas A., of Seattle, andDavid W., of Dothan,
Alabama, and a granddaughter.

___________

The witnesses to the will were William Brumbly, Edward Vail and JohnVail. At a
court of Probate at Danby, VT on 1 May 1789, the will waspresented to the
court by Titus Colvin, executor, and the threewitnesses appeared and swore
they saw Caleb Colvin sign the will andpronounce it to be his last will and
testament, also testifying thatCaleb was of sound disposing mind and memory. 
The will was approved,ratified and confirmed by Elisha Clark, Judge.

Notes from Carol Page Tilson:
* When Caleb's will was written in 1779, the Town of Danby still wasin
Bennington County. Rutland County would be formed from Benningtontwo years
later in 1781.  Also, note that Caleb wrote his will on thesame day that his
wife, Anne, died.

** Since England had forbidden its American colonies from mintingcoins and
English coins were scarce, early settlers would use foreigncoins, most often
Spanish milled dollars minted in Mexico and otherSpanish colonies to the
south. These one ounce silver coins, alsoknown as "pieces of eight," had
milled or patterned edges to preventthe dishonest from "shaving" edges and
reducing silver content.TheSpanish Milled Dollar was so highly respected. it
became aninternational trade coin

SOURCE:  Porter Matteson, "Colvins in America"  Columbus, OH.  Copy on file.
According to Matteson, Caleb was probably born in Rhode Island shortlybefore
his parents removed to Vermont.  In the 1790 census he may befound living in
the household of his father at Danby, Vt. but itappears that he returned to
Rhode Island to find a bride and may haveremained there for a short period
following marriage.  He was marriedat Coventry, R.I. on Dec. 31, 1795 to Anna
Abbott of Pardon, R.I.They had returned to Danby by 1800 where Caleb and his
wife plus afemale child appear in the U.S. census and where, in the same year,
heis included in a list of 'freemen' of the town.  An additional son
anddaughter were born before his untimely death, when, per the 'Historyof
Danby, Vt.' "he was found died in the woods, whither he had beenhunting".  It
is Unknown whether his wife Anna remarried and remainedin Danby or if she
returned to Rhode Island.  His children appear tohave remained at Danby since
his son Caleb, who was both deaf anddumb, received a bequest as "Item #1" in
his grandfather Luther's willin 1828.

In Rutland Co., VT Probate Records [abstract sent by Dawn Hance],under date of
1804: Caleb Colvin, son of Luther. Minor children: Ann,Caleb, Phileretta.
Richard Cook and Amy Colvin, administrators.(Source:  Marilyn Solari)

DEATH:  "Their father, Caleb [Sr.], had died in June of 1804.Archelaus
Walling’s record book includes an entry dated 11 Aug 1826stating that Caleb
was found dead on June 14, 1804. VT history says hewas found dead in the woods
whither he had been hunting, supposed thathe died in a fit. Anna [Abbott]
Colvin married Archelaus Walling 18Feb 1806. According to his record, Anna
died 17 Aug 1845 and is buriedin Old Hartford Cemetery, Hartford, NY.
Naturally, Archelaus did notrecord the date of his own death." [Marilyn Solari]
