He died 7 May 1898" Above quoted from Howe Genealogies by Daniel Wait Howe, 1917 The Dedham Historical Register. Vol. X. January, 1899. No. 1. ELIJAH HOWE, Jr. THE subject of this sketch^ was born in that part of Dedham long known as Federal Hill,on September 27, 1828. At the time of his birth his parents lived in the house on Highland Street, now owned and occupied by William H. Ivers ; but his father, having bought the land on the opposite corner of Lowder Street, now owned by Charles H. Shriver, afterward built the house now stand- ing there. In 1829 the family moved into the new house, and there Elijah, Jr., spent his early years, and there, too, his father lived until his death on November 30, 1880. Elijah Howe, Sr., was born on October 21, 1792, and married first on March 26, 1826, Prudence, daughter of Major Jacob and Prudence (Stow) Clark,^who died on May 9, 1832; and secondly on November 18, 1834, Julia Ann, daughter of Moses and Mehitable (Holmes) Gay, who died on December 12, 1880. He was a carpenter and cab- inet maker, and learned his trade in Dorchester. After working a year or more at Homesburg, near Philadel- phia, he returned to his native town, where he con- tinued in his trade and was noted for his skill in work- manship. Of industrious, frugal habits, of cheerful dis- position and strong convictions, he was highly respected by all who knew him. •The writer is indebted to Dr. Oliver H. ITowe, of Cohasset, a son, and to Rev. Joseph B. Seabury, of Dedham, for the facts given in this paper. Sev- eral quotations are made from Mr. Seabury's obituary notice which appeared in the Dedham Transcript for May |4, 1898. 'Mr. Clark was a millwright, and manufactured water wheels. He was in partnership with Deacon Edward B. Holmes, under the name of Clark and Holmes, on Federal Hill. Mr. Clark lived in the house new occupied by Mrs. George F. Wight, and Deacon Holmes owned the place now Mr. Weld's. Among Mr. Howe's ancestors were Major-General Humphrey Atherton, of Roxbury, of fame in Colonial times, and four, Timothy Stow, Thomas How, Ebenezer Battle, and Elijah Withington, Senior, who served in the Revolutionary War. The following is the ancestral Howe line: - 1. Abraham, b. probably in England, date not known ; d. at Boston between May 26 and Oct. 23, 1676 j made free- man, at Roxbury, May 2, 1638. His wife d. at Rox- bury, Nov. 7, 1645. They were members of Rev. John Eliot's Church in Roxbury. In 1645 he was one of the signers of a covenant to found a " free school in the town of Roxbury. " This school has.had a continuous existence ever since, and is now known as the Roxbury Latin School. 2. Isaac, b. at Roxbury, June 24, 1639 ; m. Hannah [ ], who d. at Dorchester, Dec. 20, 1728, He d. at Dor- chester, Sept. 15, 1714. 3. Isaac, b. at Dorchester, July 7, 1678; m.

Thomas, b. at Dedham, July 7, 1765: m. Aug. 30, 1789, Hannah, dau. of Elijah and Mary (Allen) Withington ; d. there. Dec. 22, 1805. She was b. at Dorchester, June 2, 1767; m. 2dly, Sept. 11, 1808, Gen. Nathan Crane, of Canton ; d. at Canton, May 5, 1848, 7. Elijah, b. Oct. 21, 1792, the father of the subject of this paper. Elijah Howe, Jr., received his early education in the schools of the town, beginning his preparation for college in the school on Westfield Street, in which Rev. Ebenezer Burgess, D. D., took a special interest, and which was later known as the Burgess School. During several years at this period Dr. Burgess paid for the services of a col- lege graduate through the five or six months of the winter school, when the higher branches were taught ; Latin, Greek, Mathematics and such as were required for ad- mission to college. Thus the pupils of this school re- ceived perhaps an equivalent of an academy course. Among them may be mentioned Edward L. Holmes, now a leading physician in Chicago, Timothy Stow, late a minister in New Bedford, Ebenezer G., Edward P., Miriam M., and Martha C. Burgess, children of Dr. Bur- gess, Joanna Dana, afterward Mrs. Mills, who wrote a book of poems, Nathaniel Smith, and Mary Phillips (who afterward married Mr. Smith), George Colburn, and Caleb Atherton. All who attended this school were particu- larly earnest and eager in their desire for knowledge. William Bates, a graduate of Middlebury College in 1837, taught there in 1841-2; Edward Rogers, Dartmouth College, 1842, taught in 1842-3; and Frederic Augustus Pratt, Yale College, 1840, taught in 1843-4. During these three years Mr. Howe faithfully attended the school. He walked daily the distance of nearly three miles, most of the way through the woods and across lots, and even "the cold and snow of winter did not deter him." He completed his preparation for college at Phillips Andover Academy during the winter of 1844-5, and in the fall of 1845 entered Amherst College " with a better fit than the average student of his class. He was a good scholar, especially quick in acquiring the classics. Among his classmates were Julius H. Seelye, afterward president of the college, and Edward Hitchcock, now professor of hygiene in that institution," also Augustus H. Buck, Professor of Greek in Boston University, and Rev. Calvin S. Locke of Westwood. After graduation in 1849, he taught in the following schools : High School at South Hadley, one year; High School at East Douglas, two years; and the Academy at South Wilbraham, one year. " He was in the Andover Theological Seminary in 1852-3, pursuing his studies for the Christian ministry, but his health was not equal to the demands of that profession. " He then returned to Dedham and gave his attention to business pursuits, and in "the year 1854 he became book-keeper of the Shoe and Leather [National] Bank, of Boston." While in this occupation he was married on January 4, 1857, to Miss Julia Ann, daughter of Oliver and Persis Gibson (Forbush) Hunt, of East Douglas. Mr. Howe early began to take a deep interest in the pub- lic affairs of the town. He became a member of the First Congregational Church, and ever after continued active in its support, serving at different times as " its treasurer^ clerk, a Sabbath School teacher, and a Deacon, " and "for a number of years moderator of the Allin Evangelical Society connected with that church. He was one of its financial supporters, a brother honored and beloved, a counsellor. " His interest in the Dedham Historical Society began with its formation in February, 1859, and at the second meeting on the 15th of that month he was chosen a mem- ber. During his long membership, his presence at the meetings, and the active part he occasionally took in the discussion, made him a valued associate. In the years 1886 to 1888 he served as a Curator, and he thus was one of the Building Committee during these two years while the new building was being erected. In 1864, he became agent in New England of Park Bro. &Co., Black Diamond Steel Works, Pittsburg, Penn.,, and continued in their employ twelve years, having his headquarters in Boston. He travelled extensively for the; firm, visiting machine shops, and all manufactories where steel was used. This company, through his agency, fur- nished all the steel used for drills in the Hoosac Tunnel. He gained a wide and valuable acquaintance with the manufacturing interests in this section of the country. On February i, 1880, he was chosen secretary of the Nor- folk Mutual Fire Insurance Company, and of the Dedham Mutual Fire Insurance Company, both having their office at Dedham; and on January i, 1885, he was made Treas- urer of the former company ; which positions he held until his death. His previous experience in book-keeping and business especially qualified him for his work, as was shown by his accuracy in all details, and his wise judg- ment in managing the affairs of the companies. In 1877 he was chosen a Trustee of the Dedham Institution for Savings, which position he also held until his death. Of Mr. Howe's family, one son, Francis Elijah, was born on August 3, 1864, and died on Octobers, 1865. Oliver Hunt, born May 29, i860, a graduate of the Medical School of Harvard University in 1886, after serving as house surgeon and assistant to the superintendent at the Boston City Hospital, settled as a physician at Cohasset, in 1887; was married on November 26, 1889, to Martha Dresser Paul, daughter of Ebenezer and Susan (Dresser) Paul, of Dedham; children, Paul, born February 3, 1893, and Julian Cheever, born October 24, 1895. He has iden- tified himself with the public affairs of the town, and has won an excellent practice. Walter Clarke, born June 21, 1872, a graduate of Amherst College in the class of 1894, and of the Harvard Medical School in 1898, is house sur- geon at the Children's Hospital, Boston. " Mr. Howe's long residence in this town had made him one of her best known citizens. His familiar face on the street will be missed by old and young alike. He was a man of simple tastes, of unostentatious habits, of con- servative temper. He hated sham and pretence. He loved peace ; controversy was uncongenial to him. He was a man of scrupulous integrity, of clean-cut and inde- pendent personality. His opinions were his own, born of his own quick, decisive thinking, expressed in concise and transparent language. As a man of business he was ex- act, thorough, laborious. His fidelity to trusts imposed upon him was absorbing. His ready wit and genial spirit made him many friends. He loved his friends, and was true to them in storm and in sunshine. His keen, quick insight made him an invaluable member of the corpora- tions with which he was connected. His convictions were deep and stable, commanding attention and respect. Mr. Howe was domestic in his tastes. He loved his home, and sought above all else the happiness of those who composed it. He was a devoted husband and father, a man of ready sympathies and deep feelings. " Howe, Elijah (I23773)

16 "ISAAC' HOWE (Abraham1), born in Roxbury, Mass., 24 June 1639; married HANNAH "ROBIOHN," she is mentioned in the Dorchester Church Records as a member of the Ipswich Church. In Vol. I11 of the published Probate Records of Essex County, Mass., page 240 in the inventory of the estate of John Woodham of Ipswich, there occurs this item, "due from Hanna Robiohn which is now the wife of Isaak How for one years board I S 10 s. July I 1678." According to the Dorchester Records he died there 15 Sept. 1714, and she died there 20 Dec. 1728.
