164 "At a Court held in Boston, by adjournment, March 28, 1680, Adm. on the estate of Richard Griffin, sometime of Muddy River, dec'd, intestate, formerly under the administration of Mary his relict, now also dec'd, is granted to Joseph Griffin, his son." (Suffolk Court Records, Vol. 9, p. 1.)

An ancient note book kept by Nathaniel Hammond, Jr., is still in existence and is now (1902) in possession of a descendant, Mr. George Warren Hammond, of Yarmouthville, Me. It contains many valuable records relating to early Newton families and is relied upon to prove, without a question of doubt, who his mother really was. So much doubt has been entertained on this point in the past that the author has taken pains to copy a few entries from this very interesting and ancient book. The following are among the earlier entries and may be taken to prove the connection conclusively. Under date of Feb. 23, 1711-12, the entry is as follows:

Then reckoned with my unkol, Joseph Griffin, and paid for his son's work, the year ending June 12, 1711.

There is also an entry of money paid to Benjamin Griffin, probably the son.

August 1, 1712, Paid to my onkel, Joseph Griffin, four pounds.

May 25, 1713, Then reckoned with my unkol, Joseph Griffin; due to him ten pounds, seven shillings.

August 31, 1700, James Trowbridge, Thomas Oliver and John Staples, a "committee appointed by Hon. James Russell, Esq., Judge of Probate for the County of Middlesex, for dividing the estate of Nathaniel Hammond, late of Newtowe," report the following division:

To the widdow for her thirds £170-02-6
To the eldest son, Nathaniel Hammond, for his duboll share 85-02-6
To Thomas Hammond, the second son 42-11-3
To eldest daughter, Mary Hammond 42-11-3
To second daughter, Sarah Hammond 42-11-3
To the third daughter, Elizabeth Hammond, 42-11-3
To the fourth daughter, Easter Hammond 42-11-3
To Hannah Hammond, youngest daughter 42-11-3
The sum to all is £510-15-8

May 6, 1702, Nathaniel and Thomas Hammond, Samuel Truesdale and Elizabeth, his wife, Samuel Prentice and Esther, his wife, Mary and Sarah Hammond, children of Nathaniel Hammond, late of Newton, agreed that the share of their sister, Hannah, deceased, in her minority, should go to their brother, Thomas. In this agreement they mention "Mary Williams, our mother, widow of our father, Nathaniel Hammond."

187 "It appears that Governor Belcher and his cousin Judge Remington were ardent friends, so much so as to desire to be buried in one grave.  Judge Remington dying first, his body was committed to the earth.  The Governor's remains having been brought here from New jersey were deposited in a tomb constructed a short time before, agreeably to his orders.  Contiguous to that of Judge Trowbridge.  The body of Judge Remington was disinterred and placed by his side.  No further use was made of this tomb for some time.  It is now (1845) in the possession of Mr. T. L. Jennison who married a granddaughter of the Governor.

"It may be well to observe that these tombs, vis., that of Governor Belcher and that of Judge Trowbridge (now known as the Dana tomb) are near the present gateway of the burying ground.  In that of Judge Trowbridge rests remains of Washington Allston."

"Belden, Joshua, his 2d son, was liberally educated--graduated at Yale College in 1743. He studied theology, was settled in the ministry in Newington, Nov. 11, 1747, and statedly discharged the duties of the sacred office until Nov. 1803--56 years. He married Anne, daughter of Lieut. Ebenezer Belden, Nov. 1749, by whom he had issue nine daugthers. Martha and Anne, both of whom died in childhood, Abigail married to James Lusk, late of Enfield, Sarah, who died, aged 22, a 2d Anne died in infancy, a 3d Anne, Martha married to Joseph Lynde, druggist, late of Hartford, Octavia married to the Rev. Nathaniel Gaylord, late of Hartland, Rhoda married to the Rev. Silas Churchill, of New Lebanon, N. Y., and one son Joshua, born March 29 1768. His wife, Anne, died Oct. 29, 1773. By a 2d marriage, with Honor Whiting, widow of Capt. Charles Whiting, of Norwich, and daughter of Hezekiah Goodrich, Esq., of Wethersfield, Nov. 14, 1774, he had a son Hezekiah, born Feb. 17, 1778. In 1772 he corrected the erroneous orthography of the family name, from Belding to Belden, at the suggestion of Col. Elisha Williams, then Town Clerk. The Colonel showing him from the records, an original signature of the first John, where the name was spelled as it now is. He effected the change by addressing a Circular, requesting the correction, to all of the name, of whom he had knowledge; and it was at once, very generally complied with--very few thereafter spelling the name Belding, although there are still a few who adhere to the corrupt spelling. He died, July 23, 1813, in a good old age, and ripe for eternity."

190 "JESSE W. BARBER.
Jesse Wilbur Barber, youngest child of Jared and Sally Kenyon Barber, was born Feb. 19, 1833, at Hopkinton, R.I.   They resided on a farm distant about one mile from Wyoming, earlier known as Brand's Iron Works.  The house is still standing with the letter T cut upon its chimney and the date of its construction, 1709.  He received a common school education and then taught school.  Later he learned the carpenter's trade and made that his occupation.  He married Mary Ann Lewis to whom were born three children, Angus A. Barber, of Westerly; Mrs. Alonzo P. Kenyon, of Ashaway, and Mrs. Henry Steadman, of Westerly.

He fell at Fredericksburg.  His brother Gilbert says: 'He stood beside me when he was killed; fragments of his head were sprinkled upon me when the shot struck him.  After the battle, at night we went upon the field and tried to find his body, but were not sure of any that we discovered.  We could not recognize it in the darkness, and did not dare to light a match least the enemy should see it.'  His wife was already dead, so the children were left to the care of his mother, they being respectively six, four and one.  Very soon and successively they were put out to live, so they saw their grandmother but seldom, and remember nothing concerning their parents."

192 "John La Farge (1835-1910) was a distinguished American painter.  He is often called 'the father of mural painting in America.'  His greatest
mural, painted in 1885, is the chancel of the Church of the Ascension in New York City.  In 1876, he decorated Trinity Church in Boston, his first important work.  La Farge also attracted praise for his bright water colors, his work in stained-glass windows, and as a teacher of young painters.

"La Farge was born in New York City, of French parentage. He studied painting in Paris, then returned to New York City to study law.  But he disliked this subject, and went to Newport, R.I., to work with painter William M. Hunt.  La Farge later traveled and painted in Japan and the South Seas."
