PREFACE


In preparing the Genealogy of Ralph Stoddard, it has been a great pleasure to find the family so generally interested. For it is yet true in this country, that all families have not grown into the habit of giving honor to their ancestors.

There is a nobility about our manhood that does not need to live in palaces, and wear crowns in order to be remembered. There is a very old book which says, it is more kingly to control one's own spirit, than to lead an army and conquer a city. This kind of greatness is often found in very poor dwellings, and clothed in thread-bare garments.

It is the nobility which can practise self-denial for the sake of others, can toil long and patiently to teach and cultivate right thoughts in the minds of children, and can dare to believe and act, that "a good name is better than great riches," and would choose "rather to be right than to be President." To make goodness the foundation of greatness is the aspiration of a truly noble mind, and many such there are even among those who are in the humbler walks of life. Such are among the pleasant things meeting him who wanders among old family records, and listens to well-worn family traditions, and in the circle of family names these things are dearer to him than gold.

In bringing this Genealogy to its present completeness, I should say less than I ought if I did not mention the earnest co-operation of Mr. Geo. N. Stoddard, of Buffalo, N. Y., also the efficient aid of A. H. Stoddard, and W. W. Dewey, Esq., of Lowville, N. Y., and Enoch Vine Stoddard, Esq., of New London, Ct. Mrs. Heyden, of Brooklyn, N. Y., also furnished valuable old records.

It is matter of regret that I cannot more certainly connect Ralph of 1666 with those of the same name, and with whom he was intimately associated.

I need only add that the Index will give the page of every Christian name, and the family name of those who have married into this family. The figure after any name indicates where the children of that family may be found.

Any corrections or additions to this family, if forwarded to the Author, will be of use in future gatherings of this kind, as it is his purpose to trace all of this name in their original home in England.

The

STODDARD FAMILY.


FIRST GENERATION.

(2) I. RALPH STODDARD, 3, born about 1666, in England (?). Died Dec. 17, 1753, [aged] 87. Married about 1696 Mary Ames of Boston, Mass., who was born about 1665, died Feb. 3, 1728, [aged] 64. The family tradition is that he was born in England. In 1695 he bought the south grant of John Gadger lands, in the north part of Groton, now known as Gales Ferry, in the town of Ledyard, Ct. Part of this purchase is now in possession, by inheritance, of Mrs. Hester Stoddard Satterlee, wife of E. A. Satterlee, Esq., and a descendant of Ralph Stoddard. In the ancient burying-ground, at Gales Ferry, Mrs. Mary Stoddard, the wife of Ralph, was the first person interred. Previous to 1836, Ledyard was part of Groton. Previous to 1705, Groton was part of New London. Previous to 1658, New London and its harbor was known as Pequot, from the original inhabitants, and included what is now several towns. It was first settled in 1646, and in 1648, contained more than forty families, among whom were Rev. Richard Blinman, from Gloucester, John Winthrop, Esq., Robert Allyn, and James Avery. With Allyn and Avery families, the Stoddard family frequently intermarries. The River Thames (which was previous to 1658 called Mohegan) separates New London and Groton. Opposite New London stood Fort Griswold, which on Sept. 6, 1781, was taken by the British under Arnold, who burned New London, and captured the Garrison of the Fort, about 150 men; of these 85 were killed, most of them after surrender, 35 were considered mortally wounded and left, and 30 were taken prisoners. Col. Wm. Ledyard commanded the Fort, and on surrender of his sword, was immediately slain.

The members and relatives of this family, shared nobly in the defense and perils of Fort Griswold. In 1836 the town of Groton was divided, and the north part called Ledyard, in honor of Col. Ledyard. In the north part of Groton, Robert Stoddard purchased the north grant of John Gadger land, now known as Stoddard's Landing. It is not known at what date, but it is supposed about 1698. In 1697, Ralph Stoddard is witness of a deed, in the purchase of land, by Thomas Stoddard, who is a brother of Robert Stoddard. Thomas afterward resided in Norwich, Ct., Robert and Ralph midway, by the river, toward New London. Being so closely associated in business and residence, and of same name and suitable ages, it is possible, Robert, Ralph, and Thomas, were brothers.

REV. ISAAC STODDARD, a superannuated member of the Providence Conference, entered into the rest of heaven, May 8,


[Page] 8

 

1869, at 9 P.M. He was born at Gales Ferry, Conn., Oct., 1788, and had thus completed more than fourscore years at the time of his death.

He was converted when about sixteen years of age, and, for the fourteen succeeding years, preached and held religious services in the neighborhood of his father's house. On the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, he left home to enter the itinerancy, at the time when such a life in New England meant exposure, hardship, poverty, and peril. He was received on trial in the New England Conference, in 1819, and sent to old Needham Circuit; in 1820, to Craftsbury, Vt.; in 1821, he was ordained deacon, and in this and the following year, labored on the island of Rhode Island; in 1823, he received his second ordination, and, this year and 1824, travelled Brookfield Circuit, Mass.; in 1825, at New London, Conn.; 1826, Middleborough, Mass.; 1827--8, Warren, R. I.; 1829--30, Brookfield, Mass.; 1831--2, Pelham; 1833, Norwich, Conn.; 1834, Norwich, North; 1835, Warehouse Point; 1836--7, Webster, Mass.; 1838--9, Newport, R. I.; 1840, Nantucket, Mass. At the division of the New-England Conference, he became a member of the Providence Conference, and was stationed in 1841--42 at Fairhaven, Mass.; in 1843, at South Yarmouth, where his health, never firm, gave way; and, in the ensuing spring, he received a superannuated relation, which he has since retained. During the fifty years of his Conference connection, his record has been clear.

The Master honored him as a winner of souls. In most, if not all, of his fields of labor, his efforts were answered in precious revivals of religion, and the strengthening of the struggling church. Much of the fruit has ripened, and been safely gathered unto God. Many of the churches which were feeble in his working-day are now vigorous and largely useful. He delighted, in his last days, to tell of "the good hand of his God upon him," and of the victories of the Redeemer's blood. The twenty-five years of his superannuation were a discipline of suffering; but, amid all, he kept his faith in God. Partially blind, and afflicted with a complication of diseases, he struggled long against them, until the tabernacle, beaten and torn by the storms of eighty years, was gently taken

down, and its occupany joyfully possessed the "building of God," "eternal in the heavens."

He was an earnest patriot, having marched to the national defence in the last war with Great Britain, and being anxious to declare, by vote and private influence, during our late civil strife, how ardently he longed for our national unity. He was a true Christian, evincing, during sixty-four years of religious life, a constant purpose to exalt and serve his crucified Lord. He leaves a widow in declining strength, and a daughter of his first wife, who have grace to abide in the shelter of the promises. May the prayers of the church ascend for them! and may the self-surrender, heroism, and success of the fathers be everywhere copied by their sons!

Col. James S. Stoddard began to learn the art of printing in his 13th year, 1797, with Col. Samuel Green, in the office of the Connecticut Gazette and Commercial Advertiser, at New London, where he continued his apprentiehship [sic] about three and a half years, when he emigrated, in 1801, with his parents to the then wilderness town of Palmyra, N. Y. Afterwards he worked a short time for Mr. Lucius Cary, in the first printing office in Canandaigua, which was also the first in what is now known as Western N. Y. In 1804, he was for a time in the employ of Maj. Samuel Colt, who had begun merchandizing in Palmyra. He was placed in charge of two Durham boats which Maj. Colt owned in Palmyra. Loading them with flour and pork, he went down Guargwa creek to Lyons, and thence to Schenectady. Among his companions were Gilbert Howell, Cooper Culver, John Phelps, and Wm. Clark.
