(The Munson Line)

The English Monsons belonging to the peerage have a recognized history extending through five centuries. According to Burke, John Monson was living in 1378. From him sprang William Monson, of Lincolnshire, England, who died in 1558. It is from this fine old English family that Thomas Munson, the American ancestor and immigrant, sprang.

(I) Thomas Munson, born about 1612, died May 7, 1685, first appears in America at Hartford, Connecticut, in 1637, performing service in the Pequot war. He was a pioneer settler of New Haven, Connecticut, where he was chosen one of seven townsmen, May 3, 1657. He was a carpenter by trade, held many civic offices, was deputy, member of the plantation and jurisdiction courts, sergeant of the train band, lieutenant and captain in the standing army of the colony. He fought in King Philip's war, and was prominent in the church. His wife Joanna bore him two daughters and a son Samuel.

(II) Samuel, son of Thomas and Joanna Munson, was baptized "ye 7th 6mo 43" (see First Church records) and died in 1693. He was a shoemaker and tanner. He was a freeman in 1667 of New Haven, and one of the founders of Wallingford, where he was chosen townsman and appointed ensign. He was a schoolmaster, a musician, rector of Hopkins grammar school, and held many of the town offices. He married Maria Bradley, who bore him ten children.

(III) Samuel (2), eldest son of Samuel (I) and Maria (Bradley) Munson, was born February 28, 1669, died November 23, 1741. He was town clerk of Wallingford, treasurer, lister, school committeeman, fence viewer and townsman. He had much land and property. He married (first) Martha; (second) Mary ————, widow of Caleb Merriman. He was the father of thirteen children, eight by the first wife and five by the second.

(IV) William, fourth child of Samuel (2) and Martha Munson, was born October 13, 1695, died July 21, 1773. He was of Wallingford, now Cheshire, Connecticut. He married Rebecca, daughter of Thomas Curtis, of Wallingford. Their children were eight in number.

(V) Peter, fourth child of William and Rebecca (Curtis) Munson, was born November 22, 1735, died February 3, 1830. He was a freeman of Cheshire, Connecticut, chosen December 21, 1771; one of a committee of eleven to "procure clothing and other articles for the soldiers of the Continental army." He entered the revolutionary army, was soon taken sick, and was discharged for that reason. Another authority says he was a drum major and captured by the British, but soon set free. He married Elizabeth Hall, who bore him nine children.

(VI) Reuben, fifth child of Peter and Elizabeth (Hall) Munson, was born September 28, 1799, died at Flushing, Long Island, September 29, 1846. He lived for a time in Virginia and Maryland, but for nearly fifty years resided in New York City. He was an extensive manufacturer of tortoise shell and horn combs. He traded extensively with Mexico. He was very successful, became wealthy, and lived in great style. In his later years he retired to a large farm at Flushing, Long Island, where he ended his days. During the war of 1812 he helped to fit out the privateer "Saratoga." He was in command of troops during that war, stationed at Fort Greene, Brooklyn. He was a member of the Society of the Cincinnati. He was prominent in New York City public affairs; he was alderman from the tenth ward 1813-20, and a member of the state legislature, 1820-22. He was one of the founders of the House of Refuge. "He was remarkable for kindness and benevolence, for love of truth, love of justice, and love of peace." He married Abigail Wilsey, born July 21, 1781, at Rhinebeck, New York, and died April 23, 1865, at Williams Bridge, New York. They had fourteen children, one of whom, Catherine, born September 23, 1804, and died September 7, 1873, married Robert M. Hartley (see Hartley). "She was of medium stature, in person inclined to roundness, of blonde complexion, light hair, an expressive countenance, enlivened by blue eyes. Her domestic virtues were most exemplary, industry and economy were conspicuous in the care of her family." She is buried in the family lot at Greenwood, Brooklyn, New York.

====================

(III) Robert Milham, son of Isaac and Isabella (Johnson) Hartley, was born in Cockermouth, England, February 17, 1796, died in New York City, March 3, 1881. He was but three years of age when he was brought by his mother and uncle, Thomas Hartley, to join his father in New York. His childhood was spent in Saratoga and Montgomery counties, New York, where he received his early schooling. He grew up under the guidance of a godly mother whose gentle teachings had their result in his later life. He was taught the business of his father and was well equipped for the duties of a woolen manufacturer. He was not a natural business man; his nature was spiritual, and his ambition was for the ministry. Guided by his father's wishes, however, he remained in business with and near him until he was twenty-three years of age. At that time he entered Fairfield Academy, intending to prepare for the ministry, but his health failing, was obliged to give up his dearest wish and returned to business life. He later located in New York City, in the dry goods business, and that was his home until death. His after life was devoted to his Master's service, and, although in a different way, it was work for humanity that he could not have done had his ministerial ambition been gratified. He became widely known as a Christian philanthropist and was untiring in his work for the poor and afflicted. He was the colleague and coadjutor of those wealthy men who were always ready to supply the funds needed to carry forward or consummate his benevolences. He was vitally associated with several institutions, but his best service was given to the one that lay nearest his heart, "The Association for Improving the Condition of the Poor." He was one of the founders and was the most important officer of this association from 1843 until 1876. He was the founder of the New York City Temperance Society and its secretary for nine years. He founded the Working Men's Home, the De Milt Dispensary, the Juvenile Asylum, the Society for the Ruptured and Crippled, and the Presbyterian Hospital. He published many articles and essays on religious, sanitary and scientific subjects. He was ruling elder of the Broome Street (afterward Madison Square) Presbyterian Church. He was a man of the deepest piety, and most gentle, loving and sympathetic nature. He was most happy in his married and home life. He married, September 12, 1824, in New York City, Catherine, daughter of Reuben and Abigail (Wilsey) Munson (see Munson VI). Children:

1. Isabella, born February 9, 1826, died January 28, 1900; was wife of John Sherwood, also deceased.
2. Marcellus, born September 23, 1827, died in New York City, January, 1902; he was a prominent business man of the metropolis and became very wealthy; married, November 15, 1855, Frances White, who recently died, leaving a vast fortune to his heirs.
3. Joseph Wilfred, born January 9, 1829, died December 28, 1905; for thirty years he was engaged in New York in the foreign shipping and commission business; he married Florinda Morton, who died March 20, 1871.

8. Catherine, born July 8, 1838; received fatal injuries from fire, December 9, 1850.
9. Martha Jane, born July 14, 1840, died September 15, 1893; was widow of Nathaniel Cowdrey, a very wealthy man of New York City, who died in 1885.
10. Caroline Adelia, born September 18, 1843, married John Lefoy Brower, a prominent business man of New York City.

(IV) Reuben Munson, fifth child of Robert Milham and Catherine (Munson) Hartley, was born in New York City, May 15, 1832. He was educated in the schools of that city until reaching seventeen, when he was sent to the town of Florida, Montgomery county, to live and complete his education at the Amsterdam Academy. He became interested in country and farm life, and later purchased a farm in the great Mohawk Valley, and has ever since lived this life and followed the occupation of an agriculturist. He has inherited the tastes and virtues of his excellent father and mother, and his life has been full of good works. He is a member of the Dutch Reformed church, and in politics is a Republican. He married, March 8, 1858, Jane Vanderveer, born June 16, 1831. Children: i.
