M.D. graduate of Edinburgh Un. Scotland
Dr. William Astly Cooper Anderson arrived on Staten Island approximately 1843. Harriet Anderson, his mother, and Sidney Morgan, his sister-in-law, lived with him according to the 1855 census. On March 29 1868, his mother died. Dr. W C Anderson had a plot in Moravian Cemetery and this is where she was buried. Dr. William Anderson was married to Louisa (Morgan) Anderson in 1832. She past away Aug. 22, 1873, at the age of 50 yrs, in Annapolis. She too was buried in Moravian Cemetery. On September, 30, 1882 at the age of 68 1/2 yrs, at Kingston Ulster, William C. Anderson past on, again, being buried in the Anderson plot. One more to mention being buried in this plot is William E. Anderson, his son. He died at the age of 65 years on December 30, 1902 in Novia Scotia.

At the time of Dr. W C Andersons death his will shows his children Frank living in New York City, Lousia living in Garden City Queens and William E. living in Novia Scotia.

According to the 1875 Census, it shows James Buchanan Henry and Louisa (Anderson) Henry, their daughter, living with Dr. Anderson. They had married December 18, 1872, at this residence, by T. W. Punnett-witnesses were Roosevelt's, Duer's, Low's, Davia's, Buchanan's, Munro's, and Morgan's.

If one would wish to locate Dr. William C Anderson's land holdings on Staten Island, They could do so by looking at the 1874 Atlas on section-13. It shows his land is bounded by Pennsylvania Ave, Anderson St, Clifton Ave, and New York Ave. Anderson St. at that time was one short block. It now rounds from St. Johns Ave to Lynhurst Ave. (Maple Ave on 1874 Atlas), Pennsylvania Ave is now Hyland Blvd, New York Ave is now Bay St. Anderson Avenue is located in Rosebank of Staten Island and was named in Honor of Dr. William C. Anderson. The Anderson house is shown on the 1853 Butler Map of Staten Island. Dr W C Anderson did get the underwater land grant for the beach front.

The Medical Society of Richmond County, (which Dr. William C Anderson had joined about 1850-52 and became president of the same), felt the need to establish an infirmary for the care of the sick poor, and for the reception of casualties. They appointed a committee to report a plan for its organization. Dr William C Anderson (as he was known-apparently used only one middle name) was a prime mover in the establishment which became the S.R. Smith Infirmary, now Staten Island Hospital. It began with the opening in 1861 of a "Dispensary" in the building corner of Bay St. and Union Place. One source lists him as THE FOUNDER.

The "Sepoy", a newspaper, was started by Dr William C Anderson in February of 1859 at Stapleton, where he lived. It was to defend the people of Staten Island from unjust attacks in consequence of the burning of the Quarantine. The newspaper was published every Saturday until the issue of the moving of the Quarantine was resolved. The March 19, 1859 issue, regarding the Hospital ship, quotes a letter to editor Mr W.C. Anderson, who is referred to as being "Experience in management of hospital, especially of the treatment of Yellow Fever Patients." This statement in regard to W C Anderson suggestion in a letter to the commissioner of Emigration and Published in the Herald, concerning the use of a "floating" hospital ship. Dr Anderson had suggested the use of a hospital ship fashioned after one that was being used off London at the time. The public museum has copies of the paper, some of which were given by Eleanor Hoge at the request of her mother Dorothy Morgan Anderson. George M Root was the editor and he went on to start the "Gazette" when the "Sepoy" folded in June of 1859.

Dr. William C. Anderson was on the list of officers for the St. Paul's Memorial Church in April 1870.

Dr. Frank Anderson, US Navy 1886, was baptized Feb 21, 1853 by Rev. R. M. Abercrombia at St. John's Church Rosebank, Staten Island. He was witness to the marriage of Louis P. Bayard to Mildred McK Lea at St. Paul's Episcopal Church on April 22 1874 and witness of the baptism of Samuel Roosevelt Outbridge, born Aug 5, 1875.

A Captain Anderson of this family (unknown first name) was instrumental in establishing the Cedar Grove Beach Club.

Dr. William A. C. Anderson lived in a large square house in Stapleton, Staten Island in which he practised medicine for years, and which much later became the headquarters of the Democratic party of Richmond county.

On March 20, 1886 our mother died of pneumonia, after only a few days illness, and was buried with her mother and father and other relatives in the Anderson plot in the Moravian Cemetery in New Dorp, Staten Island. Her death, no doubt changed the future of the six small boys and father was left with what today would seem the almost impossible job of bringing them up alone.

In the spring of 1896, Jim graduated from the Naval Academy and Rob entered West Point. My plans were uncertain after finishing the freshman year at Georgetown. My father and I agreed that I would not go back to Georgetown, and that I would spend the nest year studying in Annapolis for the competitive examination that was expected to be held in the 23rd New York Congressional District for an appointment to the Naval Academy. This District included Warren County which my father considered his legal residence. If I didn't succeed in getting the appointment to the Naval Academy, we agreed that I would study medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. I applied for admission and was told that the satisfactory completion of the freshman year at Georgetown would qualify me for admissions.
That fall the family was well scattered. Will had completed his apprenticeship at Altoona and had begun his climb up the ladder in the PA Railroad, Jim had graduated from Annapolis and had been ordered to duty on the U.S.S. New York, Rob was a cadet at West Point, and I was starting competitive examination for the Naval Academy, which we believed was to be held the next summer.
I took the examination at Port Henry, which was to determine the future course of my life, and it showed the advantages of preparation. The subjects required for entrance into the Naval Academy were definitely known, and a year's study, largely reviewing the prior years' examinations, can almost cover the entire field. The examination at Port Henry was made up almost entirely from questions taken from previous entrance examination questions. I think there were twenty one in the examination but when it was over I couldn't see how anybody who hadn't been coached as I had could possibly compete, as I felt sure I knew the answer to practically every question.
I had won the appointment. My average marks on all subjects were over 98 and the next highest somewhere in the seventies.
Later in the summer, I joined the family at the Island Harbor and late in August went to Annapolis to take the entrance examinations, and having passed them, was sworn in as a Naval Cadet on Sept. 7, 1897.

1907 The San Francisco Chronicle had the following account on 9/12/1907: "One of the most brilliant weddings that has ever taken place at the Mare Island Navy yard was solemnized at the pretty little St Peter's chapel there at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, when Miss Julia Persons, youngest daughter of Medical Director Remus Charles Persons, U.S.N., and Mrs Persons, became the bride of Sidney Morgan Henry, assistant naval constructor in the United States Navy, at present on duty at Mare Island. Miss Persons has been one of the most popular girls in naval circles, and the announcement of her engagement to the well-known young officer, which was made a few months ago, was one of the pleasant surprises in the smart set, both at the navy yard and in San Francisco. Over a thousand invitations had been sent out, and the Government tug took a large party of San Franciscans up for the wedding."

"The decorations were confined entirely to green and white, just sufficiently palms and ferns being used to throw into relief the snowy Whiteness for hundreds of roses and sweet peas. The chancel was entirely banked with the delicate blossoms, while the altar railing was hidden by trailing smylax, thickly studded with the white blossoms. At the beautiful Persons home, where a large reception was held after the ceremony, the same scheme of decorations had been carried out, white roses being massed in great quantities wherever possible, with here and there delicate ferns to heighten the charming effect."

"The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Persons, as maid of honor, while Miss Pauline Persons, Miss Dorothy Anderson and Miss Eleanor Anderson, the latter two cousins of the groom, were the bridesmaids. The maid of honor was gowned in white chiffon and a large white hat trimmed with plumes. Her bouquet was a shower of bridesmaid's roses. The three bridesmaids were gowned alike in pink chiffon cloth. Like the maid of honor, they wore white plumed hats and their bouquets were of pink sweet peas."

"The bride who was given away by her father, was attired in a beautiful wedding gown of white brocaded satin, made with long court train and elaborately trimmed with rose point and duchess lace. She wore the conventional veil, held in place with orange blossoms, and carried a shower of Lillie of the valley."

"Assistant Vaval Constructor Henry was attended by Naval Constructor Holden A. Evans as best man, while the ushers were Lieutenant Wallace Bertholf of the torpedo-boat Perry, Assistant Naval Constructor Richard Duncan Gatewood and Assistant Naval Constructor Charles W. Fisher Jr, all of whom, like the groom, wore the full-dress uniform of their rank."

"Following the ceremony, which was performed by the Rev. Chaplain A. A. McAllister, U. S. N. retired, there was a large reception at the bride's home, at which the receiving line included, in addition to the bridal party, Mrs Persons, mother of the bride, and Mrs Frank Anderson, an aunt of the groom. Mrs Persons wore white lace trimmed in lavender hat, while Mrs. Anderson was gowned in Mauve crepe de chine, worn with a large black hat."

" The young couple left on a special tug at 7 o'clock on the first stage of their wedding trip, their destination being kept a secret. The bride's going-away gown was of brown cloth, tailor made, and worn with a hat of the same shade. Upon their return they will make their home at Mare Island, where the groom is at present on duty."

1908 At the time Morgan was born, Reg was on a visit to Mare Island and was staying with Uncle Frank and Aunt Lena and beginning on Aug. 12th, he took his examination for the Navel Medical Corps and on September 10th was appointed an Assistant Surgeon, U.S.N. Uncle Frank had been the medical officer of the Yard for most of the time since I had been stationed there and both Dorothy and Eleanor were also there. In September he was ordered back to the East Coast.

The following is a letter written by Dorothy Anderson Hoge sometime between 1965 and 1970..

Unfortunately, I don't know too much. Eleanor Fay and Reg Henry had as much as they could get from the family cousins in old letters in Halifax, N.S. Canada, but one of the early immigrant decendants, a son, became a doctor and established the first medical school in Vermont. Another one had three daughters, Harriet, Ann, and Dorothy. He was a lieutenant in the British army named Langley. That's where the Langleys came in. Harriet married William Astley Cooper Anderson who had studied medicine in Edinburgh as all good doctors did in those days, and also as had his father who named him after a famous doctor professor there. W.A.C Anderson was my great grandfather. He and Harriet migrated to Staten Island. His son, same name, married Louisa Morgan, whose father was a N.Y. banker. Her brother was the Uncle Charles whose portrait we have. My father and Lulie (the Henry's mother) and Willie, the only survivors of a number of children. Willie was crippled in some way, a recluse, moved back to Halifax. Ann Langley, great grandmother of the Creighton family in Halifax. Their mother, the cousin Helen we knew.

I'm not sure how the New Orleans property came into the family, but it was there in my Grandfather Anderson's day, through his wife Louisa Morgan who had inherited her shares. My father gradually bought up the Henry boys' divided inheritance as they came of age so that he owned all his mother's share, which set him somewhat ahead financially (eventually) of most U.S. Navy doctors.

They don't know much of anything about the Henry antecedents, but their father's mother was a sister of President Buchanan. That's how he came to be President Buchanan's private secretary and special emissary to the court of St. James. He had two sons by his first wife who was a Magruder. So he was an older widower when Lulie Anderson was married to him. No doubt, he was supposed to be something, but my father, though I don't remember his ever actually saying anything, never liked him much and resented the way he took over her money (lost it), and used to go off to Europe with his older son, Joe, and leave his "sainted Lulie" with all those little boys and one servant. She died of pneumonia, taking care of baby Frank, and pregnant with the seventh. My father stuck around whenever possible and took care of the little boys who had everything. Jim nearly died of Diptheria. My father put a tube in his throat and sucked out the infection, Uncle Henry away. He didn't marry until after Lulie Died. Wanted to take Frank who was named for him, but Uncle Henry thought my mother too young and flighty. Frank and Reg, then one year and three years, were given to Aunt Hattie Irving to take care of, niece of Washington Irving, a nice old maid, reputed to have been engaged to marry my Grandfather Anderson after my grandmother died. She was nice, and always kept Frank, which was not too good for him. Aunt Belle Robson from Halifax came and took care of the other four boys for a few years, also Aunt Sidnay Morgan, Spinster, my grandmother's sister. Reg's records have most of this. I Told Sid about my father. He was surprised.

As the Henry boys grew older they were put into various not too expensive schools, except Frank, who went to a good school in Staten Island. My memory picks up where Aunt Hattie Irving (my Godmother) used to bring Frank to visit us in the 19th Street house in Washington. She dressed in black silk with a triangle of lace on her head topped with a lavender bow. I thought she was a hundred, but she was probably sixty. Frank was a sort of stilted, highly literary, anxious for playmates little boy, quizzical sense of humor which he always had, but blind in one eye which made him "different". He had several operations, which made it less obvious. I first remember Reg when he was about fourteen, came to George Washington Catholic Boarding School, spent his holidays with us. He thought he'd be a Bishop, it was a good job. Sid came too, and went to day school. He was sixteen. Still in short pants. Lived with us for a while, especially when my father was at sea, and my mother in the house alone with us, two servants. My grandparents Coffin had lived on R street until my grandmother died when I was six, and my grandfather applied for sea duty. He came back and lived with us in 1895-96. As the boys grew up, their father "placed" them, no special regard to what they wanted. Will, the eldest, at fifteen, went into railroad shops, (he wanted to be a doctor, but Uncle Henry said he couldn't afford anything and had Cassatt cousins) Jim into the Naval Academy, he wanted West Point. Rob into West Point, he wanted that, but failed in math for lack of any preparation, and his father said he disgraced the family and wouldn't do anything more for him. So Rob said, "Give me a dollar to go to New York, and you'll be free of me." So he did. Rob got a job sweeping out an office, and as you know, got his own banking and investing business, Sid wanted the navy, and "retrieved" the Henry reputation by graduating second in his class and becoming National Fencing Champion. He went on to M.I.T. and then retired and went into business as maritime finance consultant, at one time president of Matson Lines. Reg, not prepared for anything, but crazy for one of the services, worked for Rob for a while but was then to old for an appointment so only opening was a line. He chose medicine and the older boys clubbed together and put him through U. of Virginia then medical school, and he got into the Navy, served with marine corps. not too hot as a practising doctor, but good on public health. Laid out San Juan System. They all married their own kind of people and never any question about their tastes or how they behaved. They had the advantage while young of visiting us in vacations and going for a while in the summers to Lake George where their father was commodore of Lake George Yachting Club where they met nice girls and were a part in the regattas. Will married May Du Bignon of Atlanta. He became Supt of Eastern Lines of Penn. R.R. Jim married Mary McLaughry from Leavenworth. Her father was a prison authority and introduced thumb printing to U.S. Rob married Jean Tolar, Bay Ridge, they lived at St. John's Place Brooklyn, where I used to visit them. I was bridesmaid at their wedding while I was at Oldfields. The "Mister" announced his engagement at Rob's wedding to Margaret, 50 years younger the he. They were married nine years. My father's only remark was she got more out of him than his sister ever did. But he left nearly nothing and the boys took care of her until she died. You know about Reg and Frank.


The Coffin geneology is pretty complete and is on record for us with the Colonial Dames. Reg also had it where it interlocked with us. He also had what was known of the Anderson connection. My mother was Eleanor Calder Coffin, her mother Mary Calder Cartwright. (I think her mother was Starbuck, my grandmother). She married George William Coffin, Nantucket, who was brought up by aunt and uncle, his parents dead. He was the first of the sea-going Coffins who went into the U.S. Navy, graduated early (from Naval Academy) because of Civil War held Fort Fisher (at age 21) until Fort Sumter was taken, wounded in leg, promoted to Lt. Cmdr. went to Russia and Admiral Farragut - that's why my mother was called Lena. Volunteered for Greely Relief Expedition and had command of the "Alert" - one of the three ships commanded by Admiral Schley. He stood in the crow's nest 72 hours and got his leg frozen where it had been wounded. After return was offered head of navigation but turned it down and took the Lighthouse Service because, I think, it kept him near home, and my grandmother was ill. The Lighthouse Service was then under the Navy. After her death, he went to sea, on U.S.S. Charleston to the Far East. plotted Manila Bay (then Spanish) then sent plans to Admiral Dewey (his roommate at Annapolis) who had never been there, and who used them in battle of Manilla Bay. He retired in 1896, went to Yokohama with us, went back to active duty during war 1899, but it was too much for him, died in Yokohama in 1900. Until his death I knew him better than I knew my father, and was with him a great deal. He was wonderful.

(see above)

I was born May 2, 1887, in New Brighton Staten Island. My father was at sea at the time and probably my grandfather also because I have never found any allusion to him at the time. Evidently my grandmother and mother went to Staten Island because of my father's connections, though by that time his immediate family was all dead. Aunt Hattie Irving was there however, taking care of Frank who was three and Reg, six. Reg was the one able to testify as to my birth and christening when I applied for a passport since he remimbered being at the christening and its being in a house with the bishop in charge which it made is difficult to find a record in a parish church. The local minister of the community where the house was, was not New Brighton. Aunt Hattie was my godmother. I don't know when my grandparents moved to Washington to 2023 R St. but that's where we all were until I was about four years old whn the 19th St. house was built. Eleanor was born in the R St. house Aug. 3rd, 1890. My grandfather was then head of the Light House Service, then under the Navy Dept.
My parents built the 19th St. house when Eleanor was about 18 months old. My grandmother must have given them most of the money from a small legacy because she stipulated that the house should never be sold unless it was replaced by another. The idea in those days being a house was the only safeguard for a widow who could always take boarders. They had seen to many destitute Navy widows. My grandparents were young themselves, my grandmother scarcely 40, Nana. My father was seventeen years older than my mother.
We lived at 1628 19th St. until my father was ordered to Yokohama in 1897. He was attached to the Naval Dispensary for part of the time but had a quite extensive private practice which they could at that time, and a reputation as a diagnosticion. The latter part of the time was his sea duty, attached to U.S.S. (unable to fully decipher the name of the ship appears like Archlintrite), I think a gunboat, at the disposal of the president because on one cruise the Chinese ammbassador was aboard with the President - the famous Li Huong Chang (not sure of this spelling). So the ship was often at the navy yard. I remember going there to see the ship once, but I don't remember the ship, just going. My father while ashore on Dispensary duty had a horse and a closed sort of vehicle, not a buggy, and a colored driver named Spencer.
My grandmother died in 1893. My grandfather immediately applied fo sea duty and went to Japan and the Philippines on U.S.S. Charleston as Captain It was there he mapped Manila Bay which afterwards served Admiral Dewey when he took Manila in the Spanish American War. My grandfather never made admiral. He had been ordered to South America right after having had his leg frozen on the Arctic Expedition to rescue General Greely and developed Bright's disease which it affected his heart, and he retired in 1895 or 6 and lived with us at 1628 19th Street while my father was at sea, when we all went to Yokohama on October 7, 1897. My father preceded us in August and was there to meet us. We were in Yokohama at the Naval Hospital from Nov. 1897 (it took us a month to get there from Washington, 5 days train, a stop in San Francisco, 18 days by P & O Steamer ) to Oct. 1900. It looked like a split in the family then. My grandfather had died 10 months previously and had evidently left money to my mother to take me to Europe to school, ( I was always his "pearl of pride" and had spent much of my childhood with them, and in Yokohama in his separate little house on the Bluff where he had a "boy", a victoria to ride in, and two fox terriers, Chubbie and Gus.) Anyway my mother and I took the N.G. Lloyd Sachsen steamer for Europe and my father took Eleanor to U.S. and left her with Aunt Hattie and Frank in New Brighton until my mother had found the Paris school for me, and rejoined them.
Polly Condis Smith, sister of Mrs. Albert Key. Key was in the Embassy at Tokyo. Another sister was Mrs. Leonard Wood, Governor of Philippines after Spanish American War. Polly had just survived the Boxer Rebellion in Peking and was quite famous for her maintenance work during the siege. She travelled with mother and me to Paris and I shared a stateroom with her on N. G. Lloyd Oldenburg in the Mediterranean after our two weeks in Cairo. She was only 23. She left us in Paris to get married to Richard Hooker, Marine Corps. Needless to say I gleamed an awful lot about her experience in Peking. Most of the people I knew anyway as they had passed through Yokohama on their way.
I was in the Paris school from December 1900 until August 1901 when mother came over to see me and spend a month at St Marguerite in Brittany with some friends she had known in Japan-the Wilders from Honolulu. We were in Hotel de la Plage, they in a cottage. Eleanor had been left with Mrs Knox and Marguerite to go to Lake George. But I was ill- headache, sort of a nervous breakdown and she brought me home instead. My father was again at sea and the 19th Street house rented, so we had an appartment at the Portner,15th and U Street. I was in bed most of the year, until I was 15. Eleanor went to the Miss Dorsey's School where I went after a while. It was then I got to know Grace Allen and Alice Goodwin and Constance Hoyt,sister of Elinor Hoyt Wylie who afterwards married William Rose Benet. Also Mary Howry who now lives in Jamestown, and other native Washington young and Army and Navy girls. This was a few years before the rival school of Holton-Arms. I only went spasmodically until I went to Oldfields in 1905.
My father still at sea, Eleanor and I went to Oldfields in October 1905. Rob Henry was married late October and we went to Bayridge, Brooklyn for the wedding. I was bridesmaid. The winter of 1905-6 Eleanor and I were at Oldfields and my father back, a house was rented for the summer on DeSales Street opposite the convent which was later torn down to make the Mayflower Hotel. Blanche Brune (VanDusen) stayed with us,also Frank Henry. In October, my father was ordered to the Mare Island Navy Yard, and we left for California. It was a lovely overland train trip. I rembered it from the one we had taken in 1897. Not very different. We had drawing rooms both times.
We got the quarters on Mare Island at a beautiful time of year. I loved the eucalyptus and hedge of nasturtiums. Big comfortable house. Sid Henry had been ordered there after leaving MIT in the Construction Corps. They were building a ship. Captain of the Yard was his "bete noir". It was there he met Julia Persons whose father was a Doctor attached to the Marine Barracks. My father had the Naval Dispensary of the Yard. Married June 1908.
We were at Mare Island from October 1905 to February 1908-at least the family was. I left in May 1908 to go to Minneapolis to visit Blanche who had married George VanDusen and was expecting Georgie, who showed up in August. I travelled from San Francisco to Chicago in the private car of Mr. Hobart Moore who was President of the Rock Island Railroad. Lucy Powell was Mrs. Moore's friend and sort of general companion as Mr. Moore was an invalid. He never spoke but wanted to play bridge all the time. Lucy had been a close friend of mother's since Yokohama days. The Moores took me along as her friend and to make a fourth for bridge. I played all the way from San Francisco to Chicago and never played again. The Moore's only child, Than, had died at 25 after a wild life. He had been married to a darling girl, Helen Fargo, who had a hard time with him. He was of the era when rich young men gave parties for the Flora Dora Chorus and he presented each one with a diamond bracelet. The Moores were sunk. The private car was named Thanis after him. I left them at Chicago and took the train on to Minneapolis. I left there and went to stay with Jim and Mary Henry and Betty, then four, at Ft Snelling across the river from St Paul. It was certainly a contrast to the VanDusens at Lake Minnetoka. Jim was a 1st Lt in the 4th Cavalry by then. It was a new experience for me Army life. I didn't like it, but enjoyed the visit and Jim. From there, in August, I went to Colombus Ohio to visit Will and May Henry. Billy was three months old. With them I went to Lake George where mother and Eleanor came. We were there until late September.
My father was ordered to Annapolis from Mare Island. The Naval Hospital was being built. He supervised the finishing and got it started. He was the first one to try out women nurses in the Navy. Before he got to Annapolis we three stayed at Carvel Hall but eventually rented the Colihan House 61 College Avenue opposite St John's College Campus. I liked the Annapolis years, but I was too old for the midshipmen. Eleanor was just right for it. I had had the most glamorous of social life then extant in San Francisco as my mother's happiest young years had been spent there and her friends married with children my age and up in the world. I had missed the Great White Fleet as it engulfed Mare Island and gave Eleanor and FlorenceTurner such heavy Navy life, but I didn't mind that. I was never too much for the Navy. In Annapolis I had individual friends of both Midshipmen and Officers, but as always it was Eleanor who appealed to them first, being so attractive and gay. After a while certain of them settled down to both of us, some to me, but it was, except in afew cases always Eleanor first. Anyway, I hated the hops. I wanted still to study art, which I couldn't do at Mare Island. I went up to Baltimore twice a week to private lessons from Miss. Haycroft who had been a pupil of (William) Morris in London. She taught crafts and design. I remember her first surprised remark to her assistant-"Why, this girl can draw !!". She explained that most who came to study design had no idea of drawing or use of mediums. Anyway that's what I was more interested in. The first summer there we took a cottage at Bolton Landing, Lake George, an improvement on Hague. The next summer I went to England with the Frys to visit Frances Bright. I came back from a wonderful trip and stay in England with the Brights in Rochdale Lancashire, and then at the Mitchells. Sir William was then President of Shell Oil, they had been friends of us and the Frys in Yokohama. Winnie Mitchell was one of my friends there. They had a big Elizabethan place called Tudor Hall with moat, deer park and all the appurtenances. I got back in October, midst of Hudson-Fulton celebration 1909. Rush Fay had graduated in mid summer,and he and Eleanor were engaged. I am wrong about when we took the cottage at Bolton. Not that first summer-it was the second summer, because Rush got leave from his first cruise and came to Bolton for his two weeks. Also, Bolivar Mead who graduated in 1910. So Bolton was 1910. The spring of 1911 we went to Washington, my father retired and was put on a Naval Examining Board which kept him busy. We were back at 1628 19th Street and they did over a lot of the house. After that for me it was Washington social life. I saw more of Phil who was then working on sidewalks, and Jerry Creighton just back from Heidelberg-an odd one, but we got on beautifully, Harriet Bayne whom I'd known so long anyway, and now engaged to Guy Castle who had been at Mare Island and at that time devoted to Florence. I was taken for a debutante and thrown in with that group, as Eleanor and Rush were married in May 1912 and I was the one home. It was gay and I enjoyed a lot of it but a lot was an awful bore, especially the calling and the big balls. My father being looked upon as "moneyed" sort of put us in a different bracket. Probably his entire entire income was not over $10,000 but most people had 5 or 6. The summer after Eleanor was married, I went to Narragansett with Mrs Bayne and Harriot and Louise. I roomed with Harriot. It was awfully different then. Very gay, casino, beach wide open, and board walk like Atlantic City. That winter I got the measles. All the servants left. I was very sick. Afterwards for a change Mother and I went to New Orleans and there I had a wonderful time. Hugh Aiken's brother Gayle and I hit it off right away and I did the Mardi Gras with him. Also some Navy men whom I had known were on a ship in port, and another man, a student at some import business gave me some parties and a very good time. The Dene's, Charles and Alphonse did a lot for us in the old New Orleans line of native life. They had been agents for my father's real estate there for a hundred years. That Washington era took us up to the summer of 1914 when my parents went to England as their 25th Anniversary celebration and got caught in a war. I was at Newport with Eleanor at a boarding house on K Street. Rush was Captain of a submarine in Newport. That was when he got facial paralysis. Back in Washington that winter I went to New York to study art at the Women's School of Fine and Applied Art on Lexington Avenue at 4th. The first winter I boarded around, had a lot of appendicitis pain and finally had an operation in the spring. The next winter I lived mostly with the Van Vechten Olcotts on 72d Street and Central Park West. It was another different experience. He was a congressman from New York and she was the daughter of the Hoffman House Hoffmans. Lots of money. Uncle Van was a friend of my father from the Staten Island days.
In l9l5 my family built the house at Wardour on the 2 acre lot they bought when we lived in Annapolis. The idea was looking toward retirement and my mother was taken with the idea of a garden, and perhaps two riding horses. The place was just being opened up. The Valiants (Rush's sister Florence) bought a big lot on the creek side, the Doyens (sister Claude) another, and various other people. Turned out to be not too congenial after some years. It was a beautiful fair-sized southern sort of house. T. J. D. Fuller, architect. That was the year I had appendicitis. In the summer while it was building after I got strong enough, my mother and I went west. She to the Expo at San Francisco, while I stopped off with Blanche at Lake Minnetonka. That was the summer Tracy came there and in the fall had his house party at Great Lakes.
My father fell into the Wardour idea but it never worked for him. He was a scholar and a student but no gardener . Mother loved it. There was a lovely garden and they had a sleeping porch which they liked. Rush was ordered to Annapolis so they were there a lot, and finally lived there until it was sold when they went to China. My father was there less than a year being ordered back to duty in Philadelphia. The Washington House was rented and finally sold (for $l2,000, imagine). I never liked Wardour- climate, garden or people. You could take the Short Line car to Baltimore or into Annapolis, but I only liked it when people came to see us which many did and it broke the time I was there. Sarah, who worked for us and came out from Camp Mead every day was the best thing about it.Somewhere is the paper I wrote for The Monday Evening Club called "Don't Rent-Buy" which has a lot of Wardour in it.
The Alcotts were wonderful to me. I returned to art school , but in spite of Aunt Lolly trying to get me interested in various young men, especially one Ralph Allen who lived there most of the time. I was taken up with, or by, Tracy McCauley, a classmate of Rush's, who was in command of a torpedo destroyer at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. He was from Evanston, Illinois, apparantly the heir of all the McCauleys. For the legend was, he never drew his pay. Anyway, I saw every play in New York, and ate at every place like Delmonico's and the old Waldorf. Whenever I wasn't with him I waited up for Uncle Van and Aunt Lolly who were always out themselves and would bring home guests, so I was always up and evening-dressed until about two. Then I went to went to school where I stood up for 8 hours a day. It was strenuous and I was pretty tired. In February I moved to the Kindergarden Students Residence on 40th St. and Lexington Ave. where I knew Helen Large and Beatrice Allen.That summer I went out to Lake Minnetonka to stay with Blance in their new house. Tracy came there and before going back to Washington and New York I went to visit him on a trumped up houseparty at his quarters at Great Lakes, his older sister chaperoning. It was sort of a climax but I could see it was not for me.I went back to art school and took illustrating as by that time as by that time I had some things published and wanted to illustrate.I won a scholarship, which was embarrassing because it was given by a Staten Island Roosevelt, a friend of my father's and I had to write and thank him without divulging my relationship and the un-necessity for help. It got to be l9l7 and war. My father went back on active duty at Medico-Clinurgical Hospital in Philadelphia. I graduated from school amd went there too.The first winter at 42nd and Chestnut St. in Dr. Hughes' house. Second winter, Delancey. By that time I was married.

Several poems by Dorothy Morgan Anderson are entered in this computer program under Phyllis Hoge, her daughter, because of lack of space here.

This poem was written by DAH and published in The New York Times Sept. 20, 1957.

Box-like, withdrawn, his checkered
shell worn thin,
His wrinkled eyes from which
strange wisdom peers,
Lost now in time, since his dim
In some far pool, he lives his end-
less years.
The seasons scarcely mark his
The cool environment of gentle
The soft moist earth of each re-
turning spring,
THe summer solitude where berries
No pull of tide, no warmth of sun,
no distance
Call him to venture from this nar-
row space;
Sufficient this for limitless exist-
A still, calm life, a last abiding

The following is a letter written by Dorthy Anderson Hoge, wife of Philip Barlow Hoge, between 1965-1970.

Spencer (Dickinson) has the Hoge family tree rolled up somewhere but it's hard to discipher and doesn't go as far as our generation anyway. The original Hoge came to this county on one of the early pioneer ships landing at Perth Amboy. On the ship was a Barbara Hume (ship's romance). They married and started the long line of sturdy progressive Quakers. One descendent went to Seattle, one to middle west, one was the Presbyterian minister who "flourished" in NY (xx son) met in Coconut Grove(FL) Doctor, ( I think) Peyton, evidently wealthy and children married abroad. Phil's family among others settled as land owning farmers in Virginia, the famous Loudoun County, Quakers. Phil's father had brothers; Isaac, remained a farmer; Lewis, married cousin Rachel - she the business woman, he the intellectual. James, the eldest, he and Phil's father Willy finally left Virginia, went into business in Washington, grain elevator, & supply. James was Clark's (Norris of Chicago) father, also Julia's.

Phil's father married Mary Stearns, whose mother was the Lee connection, I think her name was Harriet. Another sister Josie married Johns Hopkin's brother. Phyllis (Hoge) has her picture. One was married to Uncle Will Hastings. Stearns was an Episcopal minister from upper New York. This was during the civil war and they were very poor, but certainly had great taste and education of the sort acquired from books, not schooling. I don't know where she and Willy Hoge met but I think at the Hopkin's in Baltimore. We had mutual cousins there.

The Hoge children were Nan, Rachel, Will, Phil, Mary, Margaret, Barbara. Nan's children are Fred Savage Jr., Dorothy Oudin, Nan & Rachel married brothers - Fred, and Frank (Savage). Rachel's only child - Anne Pettit. Will's - are Bill, Mary Gleysteen, and Betsy, now Diamond. Mary married Murdock Norris. Mary's children are Anne Poole, Alan, and Polly - Polly married John Rulon-Miller. Margaret married J. Nicholas Brewster, had daughter Peggy. Barbara married Laurence Stickney whom she met visiting Rachel Savage in St. Paul. He died and she married Hugh Blair Grigsby Galt (no children from either marriage).

Janet Bangs' mother was a Hoge from Loudoun Co, first cousin of the Willy Hoges. She married Charles Norris (no relation to Murdock Norris) from the wide farm land in Illinois, raised horses and cattle. The miniature that Eleanor Dickinson has is Janet Bangs' mother. She kept a fascinating diary which I read to Janet the last time I was there, covered her engagement, wedding and early married life in the big household she went to. It was hard to read, I'm afraid it's lost. There are a great many legends of the Hoge connection in the middle west who used to come and visit the Washington Hoges. They were always welcome. One was Aunt Fred, married a one time mayor of Chicago - a more or less no-good and detereriorated, but Aunt Fred was something. On the spread out prairie she decided it was lovely for people so posted a notice in the store post office of a 4th of July picnic, for everybody to come with family and food in wagons to certain grove. Everybody came. There were over a hundred families. She never got enough ice cream so on one visit Mr. Hoge ordered two gallons and she ate through it on her visit. Another odd one was cousin Debbie whose mission in life was to visit, preach to, and convert prisoners, so wouldn't do anything else on her visit but visit Washington prisoners. On his mother's side,(the Lee side), were Aunt Minnie and Aunt Jinny in the old house in Alexandria, the ones whose servants sold off the downstairs furniture. They let down the front door key on a string so Mrs H and Phil could come in. Senator Smoot bought the house. It's now government owned.

As to Phil and me, I had a friend at Miss Dorsey's school where I went for a year after I came back to Washington from Paris having spent a year out of school with nervous headaches. She was Grace Allen.(Years later around 1975 when Grace, who never married, was living in a nursing home in Ridgewood, N. J. having been put there by a nephew, she was visited by Dorothy Hoge and her daughter, Langley Hoge Kenzie. By this time they were both very old, and Grace's memory had partly gone. Grace asked Dorothy whatever happened to Phil Hoge? And Dorothy answered, " I married him", They were both crying.) She knew other Army girls and some Navy who all went to Miss Haxall's dancing class at Rauscher's. The Hoges had sent Mary and Phil. They went to public high school. Phil got to know the young group and stuck with them. The girls drifted off and went to boarding school, but I wouldn't go to the dancing class (like the fortnightlys in Elizabeth) but I got to know the group through Grace. I went with her and a group to the High School Cadet Training Corps Graduation contest where Phil's company (he was captain) won the flag. Great occasion. He had worked it all out on paper first. Grace thought he was a "rough diamond" preferred some others who seemed to me the walking disaster types. Of course I had had an awful lot of experience of people by the time I was fifteen. Phil was eighteen then, just plain himself. We went on long walks (whole group) though Rock Creek Park, on lots of Sundays, played ping pong at various houses, tennis on somebodys fixed up lot on P Street and went to matinees, very good stock companies during the summer. Mostly Phil and I did that alone, got seats in the last row and sat on the back, with our feet in the seats. The theater served paper cups of sherbet between the acts, 25 cents an afternoon. They all went off to college in the fall but we continued more or less though the next few years holidays and Phil and I kept up a correspondence always. He never talked about his family. We were of different groups. It was years before I knew he had a brother or sister besides Mary and Margaret.

Later as I grew to know Phil's people and background better there were things almost legendary that fascinated me, being so different from anything that had ever touched my life. The idea of his father and uncle the two oldest of a Quaker farm family after the civil war, walking from Lynchburg or Warrenton all the way to Providence to go to Brown, picking up rides along the way. Their mother and aunt and other children ran the farm. Somehow they were never stuck, they were all educated and managed to visit relatives as far as Illinois. A tradition. The middle westerners all visited the Hoges in Washington and there were always extras in the house. Phil's father did the marketing. He'd go out, pick up a little colored boy somewhere to carry the basket, and go to the old P St. market and load up. A great plenty of the best plain food which Mrs Hoge doled out each day from locked store room. They had a smoke house in the back yard. When Phil worked for his father after leaving college he'd go out about 6:00 to get things started, return to an assembled enormous hot breakfast. During their childhood when Mr Hoge and Uncle James made money, they bought land outside of Washington called Washington View where they could take all the children in the summers, orchard, fresh vegetables, horse & buggy, preserving. Probably they all got interested in land development there. Rachel & Phil were the only ones who wanted to go to college. Rachel afterwards taught a few years in the public school. I gathered not too successfully, but always enthusiastically. An arranger whose plans didn't always work out. Nan was the social one and Washington being small and they being what used to be called "cave Dwellers", long time settlers not congress or diplomats - or service, all knew each other. One of Nan's best friends was Lucy Bayne Theall.


The silliest sound I've ever heard
Is that made by the rooster bird.
The song that's sung by Mister Cock
of Leghorn breed or Plymouth Rock,
Rhode Island Red or Dominick,
Or any other brand of chick
Though oft called a "cock a doodle do",
The appelation is not true.
The voice that's raised by Chantieler,
That rends the early morning air
Sounds most absurd you will ever hear,
For what he says is "Urk uh urr".

Geese sure do make an awful squawk
When they just talk and talk and talk.
But warm and gentle rain in spring
Will make them sing and sing and sing.
They lift their beaks, their necks they crane,
The silly creatures love the rain.
They seem to reach the heights of bliss
That lovers reach when lovers kiss.
I love to watch them in the Spring,
To hear them sing and sing and sing.


When goose to goose essays to talk
The sound you hear is just a squawk
But sometimes when it rains in Spring
Just listen and you'll hear them sing
With beaks upraised and neck a craning
They make sweet music when it's raining
And seem to reach the heights of bliss
That lovers reach when lovers kiss
When falls the gentle rain in spring
O' then's the time the gooses sing

Oft have I thunk and thunk and thunk,
What kind of noise is made by skunk?
I never yet have heard his voice,
As I keep far from him by choice.
No doubt he'd sound verbose enough,
Did I dare listen close enough.
His fur is nice with lovely marking,
But I have never heard him barking.
He looks a handsome little creature,
But looks are not his leading feature.
The skunk is just an awful smeller,
Tho' noiseless he's a noisome feller.
He may be silent, but I think
Instead of voice he's got a stink.

This was a talk given to the Monday Evening Club, in Elizabeth, NJ at the house of P. B. Hoge, about 1940 - after which Hoge asked lawyer friend in the audience group - (Mr. Bart Woodruff) to come up and present him with award for Liars Club - "Liar of the Year" or some such.

In the summer of 1906 - during school vacation, I got a job as roadman in a surveying part on the Northern Pacific Railroad in western Montana. As I had to pay my own way as far as Livingston, Montana, where I joined the party, I rode in a coach. From there on, we were carried free, but as we were not very high-priced workers we all rode in coaches the rest of the way. My pay was the magnificent sum of $50.00 a month - board and lodging free. This is twice the amount I had gotten as axeman 4 years previously in another survey party.

Our first location was Bonver, Montana a small village at the foot of a mountain. The village itself was dwarfed by a huge sawmill plant of the Big Blackfoot Milling Company. I never saw as much lumber in one place in my life - before or since - and I suspect the forests in that location were being rapidly denuded as this was before the days of serious forest conservation.

For the first week or ten days we lived in style, sleeping and getting our meals in the hotel in Bonver, until some thrifty soul in the home office must have decided that such treatment was too fancy for a field party. So two much-used and rather drafty box cars (of the type familiarly known as side-door Pullmans) were rolled in on a side track and fitted with wooden bunks, and arrangements made with a local boarding house to feed us.

We were given blankets, but anything else we had to get for ourselves. A box car properly fitted up is not an uncomfortable place to live - and as there were only 6 or 8 men in our car - a double decker bunk in each corner - it wasn't too bad. The only trouble was during the first night. What the car had been used for previously I do not know, but it looked as though some cattle might have been in there for a while. At any rate, one of the boys was given the job of cleaning it out - and he did - with a vengeance. He used a shovel and broom and then to make sure all was sanitary he sprinkled chloride of lime around generously - and then water to lay the dust. I am not sure of my chemistry, as it has been a long time since I have had anything to do with the subjuct, but I think when you mix chloride of lime and water you get chlorine gas. At any rate, whatever it was, I was in a lower bunk in one corner - with a blanket and no mattress and I breathed the awful stuff all night long - and shivered - and I even shivered the next day in the warm sunshine, so the party chief sent me to the Company hospital in Missonla - just a few miles down the railroad. I will never forget the perfectly delightful feeling of setting into the hospital cot in a warm room after a good hot bath. I must have picked up a bug along with the chlorine, as I was off the job for about 2 weeks with the flu - except we called it the grippe then.

I would like to say something here - parenthetically - a few side remarks. Remember, these were the days before employee insurance of any kind - when men were sick or injured on the job and had to get along as best they could until they could work again and get back on the payroll. The N.P.R.R. must have had this hospital in operation for some years. The buildings were not new, there was a staff of doctors and nurses and 30 or 40 beds - 20 or 25 were occupied by patients while I was there. The company gave complete medical and hospital care and paid wages, too - not from any paternalistic or philanthropical idea, but purely from intelligent self interest. They had probably learned by experience that it was cheaper and more satisfactory to get experienced men back on the job quickly than to hire new untried men. The towns were quite far apart and the country thinly settled. So far as I know they ran the only hospital in Missonla. Other railroads there must have done the same thing, because a brother-in-law of mine - a doctor living in St. Paul, Minnesota was a railroad doctor for some years as a young man.

I bought a mattress in Missonla to take back with me. The other boys had done the same. No use not being comfortable. We settled down to the routine of surveying.

The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad (better known simply as the Milwaukee) had decided to extend its rail to the Pacific Coast and had surveying parties in to locate a line. The Northern Pacific didn't like that idea much and had put our party in the field in what they claimed was a desire to shorten their line and eliminate steep grades - no doubt true - but it was also on attempt to put a crimp in the Milwaukee plans and get in ahead of them using up the best locations whereever posible. Our chief of party always pulled up whatever Milwaukee stakes he found and threw them away - a nice friendly gesture. However, it didn't stop the Milwaukee at any rate. As far as I know they not only reached the coast, but they electrified their lines - if not all the way - at least over the mountains. Maybe somebody here knows better about that than I do as I haven't been that far west again for over 50 years.

I don't know what is the best kind of job for a young man to have, but that summer was a pleasant and healthful experience. A great deal of walking, some trees to cut down, some brambles to slash through, swamps to muck through and a swift river to ford occasionally.

The river - called the Hellgate then - but now according to the map by the much more dignified and proper name of Clark River - was not large nor very deep - but very swift and with many rapids. In many places it was possible to wade it in perfect safety - in fact it was a relief to get in the water, as the days were clear, hot and dry - so dry in fact that I have been wet and dried off completely 3 times in one day - that means clothes, shoes and all - as you had to ford the river as you were.

There was one place we wanted to cross and started ont confidently enough but as the water got deeper and we saw the rapids not far down the river - each one of us would turn back - and someone else watching from the shore - from which point it looked so easy - would try it a bit farther and then turn back again. I made several false starts losing my nerve each time and finally getting to where the water started getting shallow again beyond the middle of the river and had just started up the slope when the current got me. I swam back for the shore I had feft and was grabbed as I swept by. I learned one thing from that experience. I was scared to death wading that river and remembering the rapids below but once I was off my feet I was so busy swimming back to the shore it never occured to me to be frightened. Anticipation is often worse than actuality.

Our party consisted of the chief - named Heckman - and about 10 men. Heckman, as I remember, was a cynical man, but probably a good man on location surveys. I guess he knew his business. Woody, the transit man was a morose individual. Ernie was a good man who did his job - I have forgotten what his duties were - and minded his own business. Ed was the level man - my boss - a moody individual. The thing that I remember best about him was when I was slowly plowing knee deep in the muck of a drying up swamp and Ed at the surveying level on dry ground in the shade of a tree and cursing me for being so slow - and with each sloggy step I was getting madder and madder.

Cupid was a gay pleasant little man about 35 years old - I don't remember what his duties were, but it was pleasant to have him around. Murphy the axeman was a nice young Irish lad almost 18. Slim was a big pleasant young man named Claude Averill - but who was always addressed as "you big Swede you." He was head chairman or tapeman - and M.J. Harrison was rear tapeman.

M.J. Harrison - the last on the list - was a - well it wouldn't be polite to say what he was - but that is what he was. He was a red haired tough little runt. I do not know what kind of work he was best fitted for but he had been many things during his checkered career. He had been a bar tender, a hack driver, a jockey (disqualified for some kind of crooked work, though he always claimed he was railroaded out of the job.) He had an unlimited found of experiences if one believed what he said. "did I ever tell you about the time I joined the Salvation Army." or "That reminds me of the time." No matter what anybody else had done, Harrison could go him one better. The chief of the party said, "I don't know what his birth record shows, but if Harrison is telling the truth he is at least 70 years old. Nobody could have done all of the things he claimed to have done in 30 years of life. There wouldn't have been time.

He told us once that he had a girl in a small town, but had left the town. he went back to the town about 3 years later and went to see his girl friend. "She had a small red headed brat she was trying to teach to call me "Papa". I left that town again, and I ain't going thru anymore."

We asked him often what "M.J." stood for but he would never tell. "Don't nobody know but me and my mother. A police judge asked me that once, and that's what I told him - and I ain't told nobody - then or since".

He had a scar on his leg where somebody had knifed him. He was quite peeved about that. "I shot at the so-and-so," he said. "Wish I had killed him."

After one payday he spent the night in the back room of the bar gambling - and got cleaned out, but he wasn't mad at the man who got his money. He was mad at the Northern Pacific Railroad because he had worked for a whole month getting tired and wet and had nothing to show for it.

Generally every Saturday night the whole gang would take the train free ride for employees - and go to Missonla or Butte for a big night - and they usually had one - according to their stories when they got back. No, I never went along, maybe I was just unsociable. I do not pretend to be any saint, but to tell the truth raising that particular kind of hell never appealed to me. It would bore me to death. I could never see any percentage in getting drunk. Just never wanted to.

On one of these trips Harrison went with the gang but was missing on the return trip. The others guessed he was in jail. Two days later he was back. Hopped a freight train for transportation. The very first thing he went up to Slim "the big Swede" - and said "I licked a man a heap bigger than you. I socked him with a billard cue, and the blankity blank cops put me in jail.

One Saturday night the whole gang pulled out as usual - Harrison with them. This time instead of being late he was back early. He walked in early Sunday morning - quite mad. It seems he had gotten into an argument and a fight on the train and the conductor put him off at some small station. He beat his way back on a freight but he didn't know what to do with himself in camp - and as usual he was a pest.

Sometime during the morning he discovered fishing gear belonging to one of the other men and suggested fishing. That looked like a good idea as the stream about two miles away was loaded with fish and very little skill was needed to catch them. So we went and caught some and built a fire, cooked and ate them.

There was still a lot of the day left - and it was warm. We took off our clothes and washed them in the stream as we often did and hung them up on tree branches a short distance away on the hillside on the edge of the woods to dry and then went back for a swim. We often did this if we got a chance. The hot sun dried everything in half and hour.

Harrison, who couldn't swim much anyway and was never satisfied to stay at anything very long, decided he had had enough of the water and went up to get dressed.

A little later I came out to do the same but he started throwing rocks at me to keep me from getting my clothes. His idea was to keep me naked for a while. I suppose if he had thought of it sooner he would have grabbed my clothes before I could get them and make me walk the 2 miles back to camp naked. It would have been a good joke at that - I am bound to admit now - though I wouldn't have thought so then.

At any rate Mr. Harrison was going to have his fun for awhile. I had to duck behind a tree to escape his barrage of stones and every attempt to reach my clothes brought more stones. There were no rocks near my tree and I was getting pretty well fed up with the nonsence - when I saw a short chunky stick nearby. I make a quick dash and got it fighting on some sort of delaying action so I could reach my clothes.

Realizing that there were no stones where I was he got a little bolder and nearer - and then I fired the stick at him. It never touched him but it disconcerted him and he dodged and ran back - and I heard him yell. I make a break and dashed out got my clothes and moved out of his neighborhood and got dressed - expecting him to appear any minute.

I couldn't see him anywhere or hear him either and I looked around expecting him from another quarter, as I was sure he was cooking up some sort of devilment. Finally, I called him to come along and go back to camp. No response. Then I got curious and circled around and approached the place where he had been. There was a slight depression in the ground, loose stones lying around, and a mound of dirt beside it which had not been visible from where I had been. When I got closer I discovered that the depression was the edge of a hole. It looked like an abandoned mine shaft. We occasionally ran across them - where a prospector had made a try for one and given up when the hole showed no promise.

Up until then I hadn't worried much about Harrison. I had thought he had just gone back in the woods - or even back to camp. But when I saw that hole I got scared - real scared. I couldn't see very far down the hole. Too dark, so I threw a lighted match down but of course it went out right away. I was getting a bit frantic. I wanted to see the bottom of that hole. Finally I found a dried pine branch, lighted it and tossed it down. I never saw the bottom - but I saw water about 25 feet down - and I saw something else. I saw a foot and part of a leg sticking out of the water at an angle and it was not moving.

I rushed around to see if I couldn't find some way of getting down. I found a small tree blown over, but it was much too short. I didn't have an axe - only a pocket knife. there just wasn't anyway of getting down with any assurance of being able to get out again. I started to leave several times, to get help. I was afraid not to go and then afraid to go. I was much confused.

Time was passing. Harrison had been in there at least half an hour before I discovered him and by the time I had to abandon any idea of reaching him over two hours had gone by. I didn't know what to do. I just quit then and did some tall thinking.
The normal thing is to try to find help and somebody to report the accident to and explain what happened. There was no doubt that Harrison was gone. He had probably struck his head and been stunned and drowned. I tried to compose myself the best I could and think what was best to do - and I thought the thing through for a long time. I did some tall thinking pro and con.

As I saw it Harrison had left with the rest of the crowd for Butte, and when he was put off the train the rest had gone on. Nobody had seen him on the freight he took back to camp as he had just been chased off one before that and made sure he would not be chased off again so kept well out of sight.

Nobody had been around when he got back to camp. Except for the 2 of us the place was utterly deserted. The country was rather wild and we had not seen anyone when we left camp or on the walk to the river.

I figured when the rest of the croud came back they would tell about his being put off the train - and wonder when he would be back. If he didn't come back they might talk about it for a few days and decide he had just quit. The month had just ended and everybody had been paid to date - so if he didn't come back he would be taken off the payroll - and they wouldn't expect him to come to collect any more money because none would be due to him.

He had threatened to quit plenty of times and they would probably decide he had finally done so - and he would pass out of mind except for the tall tales about him. That is the way I reasoned it out. The rest of the outfit would easily explain Harrison's disappearance to their own satisfaction.

What about my side of it. Harrison was gone. There wasn't any doubt about it. If I reported exactly what had happened would I be believed? Would any of our ??? camp ??? be made much of by the local authorities? Of course I had some responsiblity but he had really brought it on himself and much as I regretted the outcome there was nothing I could do now.

I was due back in college in less than a month. Any investigation would cause untold delay regardless of the outcome. It would certainly upset my parents who were getting along in years - especially my mother.

They say an honest confession is good for the soul. Is it? Would it have done any good now?

I finally decided the best thing to do was to keep quiet so I did.

I tossed as many dead pine branches as I could collect down the hole and pushed a few large rocks in on top, and left - and got back to camp and tried to get myself composed. The boys got back that night. I didn't sleep too well and wasn't too cheerful, but the rest of the crowd said what a fool I was to go swimming and get so badly sunburned. No wonder I was out of sorts.

However, they all figured that Harrison had quit the job and gone somewhere else - and nobody gave it a thought. I got back to college in time and I haven't been back to Montana since.

I know it is customary to ask if there any questions. I want to reverse that procedure and first ask a question myself. What would you have done?

Capt. S. E. Dickinson, of Annapolis, Once Lived Here---Son in Service, Husband of Former Eleanor Hoge.

(This is one of the series of articles concerning distinguished officers of the U. S. Navy hailing from Elizabeth.)

A naval officer connected with the present war who formerly resided in Elizabeth is Capt. Spencer E. Dickinson, now stationed at Annapolis. Although he and his family stayed here for only three years, they were in Elizabeth long enough to form a lasting tie here through the marriage of their son, Lt. Dwight Dickinson, III, now on sea duty in the Pacific with the pay and supply corps of the Navy. Lieutenant Dickinson's marriage to the former Miss Eleanor Hoge not only united him with an Elizabeth family of long standing, but also created an additional bond, between two families, both of which were steeped naval tradition.

Lieutenant Dickinson's wife, although not herself the daughter of naval parents, had nevertheless a thorough knowledge of the profession. Her mother's father, the late Capt. Frank Anderson, had been a doctor in the Naval Medical Corps. She discovered also that one of Captain Anderson's good friends had been Lieutenant Dickinson's grandfather, Capt. Dwight Dickinson, another naval doctor. In fact the two men had been so closely associated that there was an arrangement between them to look after each other's families during their respective absences on long sea voyages.

Captain Anderson, who was graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City, could not afford to follow in his father's footsteps as a Staten Island family doctor. The late Dr. William Astley Cooper Anderson, became so "land poor" through being presented with real estate instead of cold cash by his patients, that it was necessary for Dr. Frank Anderson join to the Navy and thus assure himself of regular income.


Dr. Anderson's son's career in the Navy took him to many foreign lands, and the family lived for a considerable time in Yokohoma, where Captain Anderson was in charge of the U. S. Naval Hospital. Here the family saw a great deal of Mrs. Hoge's paternal grandfather, Lt. Commander William George Coffin, a naval officer with a distinguished Civil War record, who settled down in Yokohoma to be near his transient relatives for a while.

Lieutenant Commander Coffin had been active in the Fort Fisher Civil War campaign off North Carolina, when he was in command of the "U. S. S. Alert." He was later in command of an expedition to the Arctic to rescue Gen. Adolphus Greely and members of the latter's exploring party. These men were located and brought safely back to the home on the three Navy ships in charge of Commander Coffin.

Commander Coffin was a roommate at Annapolis of Captain "Fighting Bob Evans," of Spanish American War fame, and Admiral George Dewey was also in the same class, Before his retirement, Commander Coffin had sailed his ship to the "U. S. S. Charleston" into Manila harbor and had sent Dewey information about those waters which later proved valuable in the Manila Bay campaign. Mrs Hoge remembers Dewey and other distinguished naval officers such as Gridley, stopping off in Yokohoma on their way home from the Philippines to see her Grandfather Coffin and his naval son-in-law.

Mrs. Hoge also remembers herself as a small child of 3 experiencing the excitement of christening a ship, the Lighthouse tender "Azalea." Her Grandfather Coffin was at one time head of the Lighthouse service on the Eastern seaboard, then under the jurisdiction of the navy, and subsequently taken over by the Treasury Department.

Mrs. Hoge's mother, the late Mrs. Frank Anderson, frequently visited in Elizabeth as did her other daughter, Mrs. Rush S. Fay. Mrs. Fay carried on the family tradition by marrying into the Navy and her husband, the late Lieutenant Commander Fay, was active in the first World War as navigator of a battleship and later as commander of a submarine. His son Francis Anderson Fay who spent a winter here with the Hoge family a few years ago, joined the Navy after the outbreak of the present war.

Although Mrs. Hoge broke the family pattern by marrying into the Standard Oil interests instead of the navy, she nevertheless has kept the family name in the limelight. She is active in literary and artistic circles here, and was awarded the 1932 award given by the National Association of American Penwomen for her one-act play entitled "Illusions." She has frequently designed scenery and properties for Elizabeth dramatic events and some marionettes which she once made for a puppet show here were placed on exhibition at the Newark Museum.

POEMS, By: Dorothy Anderson Hoge

Box-like, withdrawn, his checkered shell worn thin,
His wrinkled eyes from which strange wisdom peers,
Lost now in time, since his dim origin.
In some far pool, he lives his endless years.
The season Scarcely mark his lingering;
The cool environment of gentle snow,
The soft moist earth of each returning spring,
The summer solitude, where berries grow.
No pull of tide, no warmth of sun, no distance,
Call him to venture from this narrow space;
Sufficient this for limitless existence--
A still, calm life, a last abiding place.

published in the NY Times - Sept 20, 1957.

Shall we go by subway or break out the car?
If we go by subway we won't have to park -
The rush hour's dreadful but quicker by far.
Our friends in the suburbs would think we're bizzare,
But we'd be better off when we disembark;
Shall we go by subway or break out the car?
If we go by subway we won't have to park -

"Sometimes, they say, the mountains talk."

Listen, the mountains are talking.
The moon tonight is autumn-chill and low
From peak and crest in distance diapason
Their cloud-borne voices rise and fall and flow
In organ tones no chords of earth can carry,
In speech no ear of man shall ever know.

Theirs is an old communion.
In syllables reverent and grand
Their murmurings come down the streams and valleys.
The sleepless, restless mountains understand
That ageless speech, and they shall talk together
Until God gathers them within his hand.

Half-hidden here her quiet spirit grew
Like mountain laurel in a shady place,
Spreading each year her sheltered bloom anew
In wider reaches of increasing grace.
Clustered like some intricate sweet rhyme,
Accents of loveliness in leafy space,
She blossomed to her ultimate springtime.

So fleetingly did one poised moment spare
Her patterned beauty in a fragile prime
We hardly missed her fragrance from the air,
We hardly knew her gentle breath was still
Her quiet blossoming, so lately fair,
Over and gone - we hardly knew, until
We saw the laurel lying on the hill.

I'm tired of flowers
Before they have bloomed;
I've weeded for hours-
I'm tired of flowers-
Weeds have devilish powers;
The garden is doomed.
I'm tired of flowers
Before they have bloomed.

The earth is still and mute; no blossoms throw
Their scarves about her in a festive dress.
Bare and strong her simple contours flow,
Molding the beauty of her nakedness.
Thus for her robing in white folded snow
She waits with quiet mien, proud, passionless.

Darkness whispers. There is a hidden presence
In the night. If only it would come a little
Closer we might capture it like a firefly,
Here in our fingers.

In and out of moonlight and swaying shadows,
Night winds, soft winds, carry it as a perfume,
Clothing us with vertigo, drunk with flowers,
Fainting with honey.

What is this dark moth secrecy,
Glancing here and there in the dew-wet lilies,
Starting old ghosts no one imagined waking
From their long sleeping?

So in Eden broke the silent day.
But God was hard to please. "After the night
Of dark chaos," he said, "is there no way
To glorify this burst of golden light?
Is there no joyous creature here who may
Fling high a song to heaven, clear and bright -

A song so clear that heaven shall ring, so bright
My carolling angels shall re-echo 'Day".
Surely for this I said 'Let there be light';
Surely for this I must think up a way."
So God sat down and thought all night - all night.
"I hate to risk a man, but still, I may."

At last the earth-clod breathed, and God said, "May
Your name be Adam, my first man, and bright
Your song of praise to greet my glorious day."
But Adam stretched and blinked. Said he, "This light
Is harsh; it hurts me. I desire the way
Of moon and stars and lovely langorous night.

And may I not have one to share my night,
My stars, my love?" God said, "Well yes. You may;
I give you Eve." Then Adam's eyes grew bright.
"O God, I promise that each dawning day
Our voices shall lift up to praise your light."
God smiled. "At last Creation's under way."

So Eve and Adam went their lovers' way.
Close lay their bodies in the fragrant night,
Sweet rose their hymns at dawn - until that day
The Serpent tempted Eve and wrecked their bright
Young egos. Out of Eden in dismay
They passed between two swords of flaming light.

And God was lonely. In the cool twilight
He walked beneath the Tree. "Well, anyway,
They've had their love, their long sweet night,
Their Eden, more than other lovers may."
Grieving, he watched the Serpent, sinuous, bright,
Smugly uncoil after a well-spent day.

God mused, the day is dark without their light.
My creatures start tonight on their long way.
And yet, like stars, they may shine strangely bright."

This is a letter sent to Mr. Hoge by Zella Proffer Saylor 10001 Riggs RoadAdelphi, Maryland

March 9, 1963
Dear Mr. Hoge,
In spite of my late answer I would like you to know that I appreciate your note and find it interesting. In the first place, Miss Moody often spoke of you with warmth. I do not believe at that time she was aware that you were a descendent of Mahlan Scholfield. Further I have often thought of setting about to find the records of the Friends Goose Creek MM in Virginia where many of the Scholfields moved from Maryland. There I thought to begin the search for living people of the Scholfield family. Now you have begun the search for me.
I have hope that someone living will have knowledge of Issarchar and Mahland...perhaps give me significant notes about the Adelphi Mill. I would like to know what you know of Mahlan and if there are others here who might have old letters of carry interesting oral tradition.
My laggard answer comes not from lack of interest but low vitality. I helped to manage the home rule charter drive in Prince George's County which was defeated by a mere 311 votes last November. It not only left me exhausted but knee deep in things, both domestic and personal, that had been neglected. However, in recent weeks I am about to climb on top of things. I am now ready to push out on affairs more interesting.
Last week I dragged out of the closet three retired suitcases in which I have deposited my notes on the Adelphi Mill. My notes are not so orderly and beautifully scribed as Miss Moody would have done -- yet they again make interesting reading. I am stimulated to be doing more in this research.
As you probably know I am not a geneoligist and have not completed the family tree as can be done. I went to search out the family a little because there were so many Scholfields in and out of the Adelphi Mill business that I needed to know their relationship. I am happy to give you the line of your family as I know it now. No doubt by the time I have finished the Mill research I will have more complete information about this family. When I have done all that I wish, I shall leave with the DAR the family tree as I have developed it...this for others to use, if they wish.
Mr. Saylor and I plan now to go to England this summer. We shall be driving about some and perhaps I shall have an opportunity to look up some of the records on Scholfields. I am using the special spelling used by Mahlan and Issachar again and again in newspapers - yet there are, as you know, many variations of the spelling.
Your most distant ancestor that I have found is one John Scholfield. He came from Brighouse, England, and presented his certificate at the Friends Fall MM (Fallington, Bucks Co. PA.) in 1718. The certificate was dated 1717 12 28 in Brighouse. There are at least three other goups of Scholfields in early America. A mother and two or three sons came with the Calverts to Maryland. Usually they spell the name with a double "o" --Schoolfield. They were of the gentry, had a coat of arms and were either Catholic of high church--certainly not Quaker. Another group descended from John of Saddleworth, Yorkshire, Eng. This wing had wollen mills in New England; one wove the fabric from which President Monroe's inaugural suit was made. Still another came from Rochdale, Lancashire. Brighouse, Saddleworth and Rochdale are about twenty miles apart, They were likely all Quakers--and I might find out something about their relationship in English record.
John Scholfield from Brighouse appeared sparingly in the PA records. His marriage is dated there--married to Ann Lenwire 1724 4 3 in the Falls records. His children were given:

John, Jr. and eight brothers and sisters.
Jane born 1726
Isaac " 1728
David 1730 (died in 3rd month)
Thomas 1732
Samuel 1734
David 1736 At Deer Creek
Phoebe 1739
Jonathan 1742 Moved to Alexandria in 1799

John Jr. was given no birth date. However, after John Jr. had moved to Maryland he was in a census area in 1776 where he gave his age as 55. That would indicate that he was born in about 1721. I deduce from this that his mother likely died and the marriage of John, Sr. in 1724 to Ann Lenwire was a second marriage.

John Jr. moved to Gunpowder MM out of Baltimore by 1759 by 1771 he was in Frederick County, MD, llater when Montgomery County was formed-he was there. By 1789 he was in Prince George's County. He died here in 1795; his wife, Rachel was his executor along with two sons.

John Scholfield, Jr. married Rachel Marshal. They had six children:

William, born Dec. 14, 1752
Ann " June 2, 1757
Andrew Aug. 10, 1760
Joseph Sept. 11, 1762
Issachar June 17, 1765
Mahlan Oct. 2, 1769

John bought the first 12 acres whereon the Adelphi Mill stands in 1782. John was a miller; also his eldest son, William. William lived nearby the millsite; his father in Montgomery. Apparently while the mill was being built William ran Catherine Digges' mill near Bladensburg. William died in 1784--only two years after John bought the mill place. William willed his part of the mill holding to his youngest brother Mahlan, then only about 16. In a short time John Scholfield sold his half of the mill to Issachar and Mahlan, These two then controlled the mill, although through the entire time both Andrew and Joseph served the mill and bought and sold land about here.

Mahlan Scholfield married Ann Neill of Frederick Co., MD. They had six children:

Rachel N. who married Isaac Hoge, 1836 9 14 by Hopewell MM

Perhaps you know fully all about Mahlan's children. I know little more than I have here typed.

If any of this is of interest to you, I am glad. I have now to write a two page report of the history of the Adelphi Mill for the Park and Planning Commission. This for a publication of theirs. Later I hope to give as detailed report as possible in a longer publication.

Very sincerely yours,

Zella Proffer Saylor

Langley H. Kenzie Resume for Burchfield Penny Fine Arts in the Craft Media Exhibit of
Western NY Artists

I am a self-taught fiber artist who started out on an entirely different course.

After graduating from high school in 1946 I enrolled in the Juilliard School in New York as a voice major with a minor in piano, and pursued music until I found my interests were moving away from the performing arts toward craft and design.

After my marriage in 1953, my husband and I spent several years in Germany, and returned to live in Boston in 1959. Before the birth our first daughter that year, I audited two courses at Wellesley College - Introduction to Philosophy, and Introduction to Art History. My husband's job later took us to Ohio. We had another daughter there in 1964, and eight years later he was moved again, this time to New York City and we lived in New Jersey.

Since I had no formal education as such, while we were there I began taking courses for college credits at Ramapo College between 1973 and 1976 expecting this to lead eventually to a degree. I completed courses there in Contemporary Art History, Sculpture and Drawing. In 1979 we moved to Buffalo and I completed courses in Design I, Design 2 and Photography at Buffalo State College. In those days we were traveling much of the time and the degree was eluding me. I therefore decided not to worry about it and soon realized that it wasn't the result that kept me going, but that what I really enjoyed was the pursuit.

Once, during one of our moves, I discovered two hooked rugs in mothballs that I had made many years before, and the idea of hooking again began to intrigue me. I then went to the Pearl McGown Hooked Rug school at Chautauqua in 1986 where I learned the finer points of classic rug hooking and dyeing.

I had made my first rug in 1961 without any instruction, using a pattern printed on burlap which I purchased from a local department store in Wellesley. The next one I made two years later was of my own design. Both rugs were made from wool scraps which I washed and then cut into strips by hand. Along the way I also learned collage and pisanky which I later taught at the Garret Club in Buffalo. In 1991 I took a class in weaving at a the University of Buffalo. I realized then because of the time and intensity of each craft that I could not both weave and hook. Except, perhaps, for photography, I decided that hooking took priority over everything else I had tried and it has been my most important medium ever since.

I sometimes still hook with scraps if the color is right, but I start mostly with 100% white wool which I dye on the kitchen stove, and then I use a "stripper" which cuts several strips at a time, ensuring uniform width. In making a rug I never start with a complete design intact, but rather I draw a focal point first, sometimes changing it considerably along the way and often pulling out as much as I have hooked, as a painter might overpaint. Working on the finer points of design and color, is to me, labor intensive. I work best with no visual or oral distractions. The rug I am now working on is a copy of a charming primitive, but I feel that my next one may be an abstract, as I am definitely leaning in that direction.

My Displays:

1999 The Garret Club 91 Cleveland Avenue Buffalo "Hooked On Rugs"
2003 Art Dialogue Gallery 1 Linwood Avenue Buffalo "Art On Wheels"
2004 Art Dialogue Gallery 1 Linwood Avenue Buffalo "Still Life - Secrets That Objects Share"

This is the first time I have entered any of my rugs in a juried show.

By John King on the occasion of the passing of his Grandmother and his wife's Grandmother April 4, 1990

"Two Grandmas Passing"

You were our lifeline to future being,
As we waited,
In the thoughts of your hearts,
The depths of your spirit,
And the tenderness of your womb.

We, whom you could not see,
Stirred in your imaginings,
Dancing in the great Love,
When you and yours
Would call us to be.

You were our lighthouse for the present,
As we burst
With boundless, bantering childhood energy
Under your watchful gaze.

Your home, was soothing and safe harbor,
Though its master not always gentle,
For life had taught you
And you wanted us to know
So your wounds
Would not become ours
On the journeys ahead.

I cried that day
Leaving your wonderful house,
I knew the present was passing.
Though I would see you again,
You were passing,
Passing me
On to my own present.

Much as I yearned
For my own journey,
I feared it without you.
You loved me so,
Though you rarely spoke it,
And I loved you back.

Now you pass again,
Leading the way,
Becoming our lifeline to the past,
As we call new lives into being,
and become lighthouses ourselves.

Now you pass again,
Calling out to us,
As you did before our birth,
Guiding us in the present
With you settling spirit.

Now you pass again,
As we wait wondering,
As the world waits wandering,
You go on,
Our lifeline to future being.
