Notes for LEWIS BENEDICT:

"Henry Marvin Benedict, The Genealogy of the Benedicts in America,  (Joel Munsell, 82 State Street, Albany, NY, 1870), pages 228-233."

Lewis B, p 228.jpg (34435 bytes)278. LEWIS7 (Uriah,6 Uriah,5 Thomas,4 Thomas,3 John,2 Thomas1), b. Nov. 7, 1785, at Milton, Saratoga Co.; m. at Albany, Jan. 14, 1812, Susan, dau. Spencer and Dorothea (Hallenbake) Stafford,(*) who was b. July 1, 1791, in Albany. He received from nature a physical organization of rare perfection and vigor, and his intellect was after the fashion of the body it animated, robust, masculine, and active even to restlessness. An uncommonly inquisitive spirit led him to scrutinize closely whatever passed within his notice, and when, at the age of twenty, he left Milton to reside in Albany, there were few things in rural economy, or in business as then done, that he did not perfectly understand. In 1806, having attained legal age, he was admitted a partner in the firm of Marvin Benedict & Co., which his father had established in Albany the year before. In 1813, this firm was dissolved by the death of Uriah Benedict. In 1815 he became a partner in the firm of his father-in-law, Staffords, Spencer & Co. The hardware business proved especially agreeable to him, and he never forsook it during his business life. His connection with his father-in-law, in mercantile relations, ceased in 1825, and never was renewed. Thenceforth, he was senior in all his partnerships, and they were numerous. Although he was, himself, always a resident of Albany, he had partners and establishments elsewhere, at various times, especially in Utica, Rochester and New York. His activity, enterprise and public spirit, soon placed him in the front rank of the leading men of the city; and every project designed to increase its business, wealth, population or attractiveness, found in him an energetic supporter. Having taken an active part in establishing the Commercial Bank, in 1826, he was appointed one of its first board of directors, and he remained one, so long as he was in business. He was, also, a director of the Albany Insurance Company. About the same time he became greatly interested in promoting steam navigation on the Hudson river, and was stockholder and director in several associations formed for that purpose. In 1833, the Utica and Schenectady rail road company was incorporated, and he was named a corporator. He was also chosen director on the organization of the company, and was continued in the board until 1847, when he declined to serve longer. The construction of this road was attended with difficulties hardly to be imagined now. There was no precedent for anything; a very few short lines of rail road only having been built in the country at that time. As a member of the executive committee of the board, he devoted days and nights to the service of the corporation. The then engineer of construction, and, subsequently, superintendent for fifteen consecutive years, William C. Young, writing in 1862, of Mr. Benedict's connection with the enterprise, says: "His influence was positive and effective in the organization and management of the Utica and Schenectady rail road, and contributed to a successful result in general and in detail, and that inaugurated a system of economy and practicabilities in the rail road system, which was the prevailing one for the time." The Albany and West Stockbridge rail road received his support from its inception, and he served it as a director for many years. He held the same relation to the Saratoga and Schenectady rail road, and took a leading part in its location, construction and management. The public works of internal improvement, especially the canals, were objects of much interest and solicitude to him. Ex-canal commissioner, Asa Whitney, says: "The canal system of the state was then (1839) occupying a prominent place in the public mind, particularly the enlargement of the Erie canal. Mr. Benedict was among the most prominent and efficient advocates of prosecuting the enlargement to completion. My connection with the project as a canal commissioner, brought me in contact with the most prominent men of the state, who interested themselves in the question; and the opinions of none were more respected and deferred to, than those of Lewis Benedict."
     It would not consist with the limits or the design of this paper to recount with even an approximation to completeness, the multiform labors Mr. Benedict performed, the sacrifices of business and money he offered, the anxieties and trials he endured through long years, in order to advance the cause of good government and universal freedom. To do that, would require a history of all the phases of faith that parties exhibited, and the vicissitudes of fortune they encountered during his long life, together with a narrative of his personal experiences that alone would fill a volume. It is enough to say that, in devising, recruiting, and cherishing the political organizations whose course, at times, seemed erratic and its aims shifting, to such as knew not of a certain steady purpose, of which the farsighted statesmen who shaped its ends never lost sight; and which finally disclosed its true mission in the sublime exhibitions of force and patience made by the republican party of the Civil War, he was efficient and faithful; and although darker days than the liberal party saw in the course of its protracted struggle never dawned upon the country, neither the hope nor the spirits of its leaders ever flagged. The day is past when any can contemn the wisdom, doubt the patriotism, or deny the services of that illustrious triumvirate, "Seward, Weed, and Greeley," and escape the imputation that themselves are neither wise, patriotic, nor truthful. of the little company who shared in the councils of which this party was born, who framed its issues, organized its forces, planned its campaigns and then fought them, who moderated its triumphs and retrieved its defeats, by all of which its growth was first protected and then assured, next to those eminent men, who comes, if not Lewis Benedict, with his fertile brain, his tireless and gratuitous industry, his invincible courage?
     Three of Mr. Benedict's colaborers, fitted by long and intimate association to speak of his qualities, and from their position the best acquainted with the nature, extent, and value of his services, have recorded their opinions of him and his works. On an occasion which made it proper for Mr. Weed to speak in this behalf, he said: "In the darkest days of Jacksonism and Van Burenism, when the Albany regency wielded with an iron despotism the power of the general, state, and city governments, Mr. Benedict was foremost, in services and sacrifices, among the few who upheld the whig banner. As chairman of the whig state committee, for six memorable years, he was the political engineer who organized and guided the whig phalanx. To him there were no terrors in defeat. Beaten in one campaign he immediately set about a reorganization for another. In 1837 he established the Jeffersonian, a paper which contributed largely to the successes which followed. In the great presidential conflict of 1840, Mr. Benedict, abandoning his own business, gave himself up to the whig party. * * * Further back, in 1824, he aided essentially in carrying this state for John Quincy Adams, as President. After our success in 1837, Mr. Benedict was invited to take the office of state treasurer, but he declined that and other stations." Governor Seward, addressing him in 1843, wrote: "* * * there would have been no successful whig party without your energetic and indomitable efforts." Mr. Greeley, in an obituary notice, said: "He was probably more influential in the politics of our state for a series of years, than any other private citizen."
     In domestic and social relations, Mr. Benedict revealed softnesses and sympathies which a somewhat brusque manner, and a positiveness in statement quite common with him, gave no token that he possessed. He had a high respect for science and learning, but to his desire to promote their diffusion was added an equally strong one to patronize every means devised by religious thoughtfulness for the spread of the gospel, and especially for every means of instruction that promised to increase the knowledge and elevate the morals of the youth of the country. His conspicuous connection with public questions and party management, made him acquainted with men of parallel pursuits and position, of all shades of political belief, and it was one of his pleasures to assemble them in his own home, as if to demonstrate how completely he excluded from the sacred retreats of private life, the asperities and antagonisms in which he so freely indulged outside of those enclosures. These hospitable modes characterized his social life during his long career as a politician and merchant.
     The 14th of January, 1862, was the fiftieth anniversary of his marriage, and he commemorated it by a golden wedding. Notwithstanding the expectation of life reasonably justified by his high physical and mental condition on that evening, in six months thereafter Lewis Benedict had no existence save in memory. He died July 15th, 1862.
     Mrs. Benedict survived more than seven years, dying Dec. 30, 1869. She was a woman whose prominent characteristics were of the kind that command respect and win regard. She devoted herself to the duties that belonged to the varying relations of her life. As a daughter she was dutiful to a degree that evoked the blessing of her father on his death-bed, because she had never caused him an anxiety in all her life. As a wife and mother she was a model of tenderness and fidelity toward her husband, and of love and thoughtfulness for her children. She assumed the obligations of religion, and confessed those she owed to the world around her; discharging the one class with diligence and fervency of spirit, and the other with charity for the infirmities of the weak and erring, sympathy for the afflicted, help for the needy, encouragement for the struggling, and applause for such as did well. She was singularly discreet in speech, and always mindful of the interests of peace, so that she lived encompassed by friends, and died without an enemy. (See Memorial of Lewis and Susan Benedict.)

As a wife and mother she was a model of tenderness and fidelity toward her husband, and of love and thoughtfulness for her children. She assumed the obligations of religion, and confessed those she owed to the world around her; discharging the one class with diligence and fervency of spirit, and the other with charity for the infirmities of the weak and erring, sympathy for the afflicted, help for the needy, encouragement for the struggling, and applause for such as did well. She was singularly discreet in speech, and always mindful of the interests of peace, so that she lived encompassed by friends, and died without an enemy. (See Memorial of Lewis and Susan Benedict.)

Lewis B, p 234.jpg (41054 bytes)LEWIS, b. Sept. 2, 1817. His early studies were prosecuted at Aurora, Cayuga Co., but his preparation for college was made mainly at the Albany Academy. In 1834 he entered the sophomore class of Williams College, and graduated in 1837. Three years after he delivered the Master's Oration. As a boy, he was noted for his zeal and diligence in study, and not less for enterprise in play. The records of the Albany Academy attest his success in competitive examinations; and it is well remembered, by many who shared in them, how, after sweeping the prizes for scholarship, he would resort to the play ground, and exhibit equal superiority in those games and contests, which are alike the peril and delight of robust and ambitious boyhood. His collegiate career resembled his academic--it was successful to whatever degree he chose to make it. While a student of the law, he maintained sufficient ardor of pursuit to enable him to acquire a knowledge of the elements of that science; but his taste for general literature was decided enough to save him from engrossment by studies purely professional. His legal studies were directed by the Hon. John C. Spencer, at Canandaigua, and on his admission to the bar, in January, 1841, Marcus T. Reynolds, then at the zenith of his professional fame and intellectual vigor, received him as his partner in the law. He was subsequently admitted to the state and federal courts. In 1845 he was appointed city attorney, and was reappointed for a second term. In 1847 he was appointed judge advocate general, on the staff of Gov. John Young. In 1848 he was elected surrogate of the city and county of Albany for four years. In 1849 he was appointed judge advocate general by Gov. Hamilton Fish. In 1852, and again in 1860, he received the whig nomination for city recorder. In 1854 he was appointed one of the three commissioners to report on the pecuniary and other conditions of the several state prisons, and to devise laws for their better regulation and discipline. The committee made a voluminous report to the assembly in 1855. In the fall of 1860 he was nominated by the union men of the district for member of assembly, and was the only union candidate elected from the county. His political career closed in 1860. He was always a leader. He was often delegate to conventions, state and county, chairman of committees, general and local, a prolific author of addresses and resolutions, and a frequent speaker at political assemblages. As a surrogate the clearness of his mind and the equity of his convictions receive some illustration from the circumstance that of the many judgments pronounced by him, during his considerable term, but one, and that made in his noviciate, is known to have been reversed by an appellate tribunal. On the outbreak of the rebellion, he early offered his services to the governor. Declining offers of higher positions, to which, as a civilian, he feared himself unsuited, he finally accepted the lieutenant colonelcy of the Second Fire Zouaves (73d N. Y. Vols.). This regiment made a part of the Excelsior Brigade under Gen. Sickles, took part in the siege of Yorktown, and was the first to plant its colors upon the ramparts after the evacuation of the place by the rebels. The battle of Williamsburgh, May 5th, 1862, followed, and Col. B. was taken prisoner while bringing up the reserve to reinforce the extreme left which was being persistently assailed by the rebel General Joseph E. Johnston. He was taken to Libby prison, and thence to Salisbury, North Carolina. He was exchanged August 10, 1862, and his exchange was officially announced September 30, 1862. He came home in wretched health, but careful nursing saved his life. He was, as soon as his condition permitted, appointed by Gov. Morgan, colonel 162d New York volunteers. The regiment was ordered to, and arrived at New Orleans, December 15, 1862. About January 10, 1863, Col. Benedict was ordered to Donaldsonville, sixty miles above New Orleans, and was acting brigadier-general at that post. He commanded a brigade at the battle of Port Hudson, June 14, 1863, where his calm bravery excited the admiration of all who witnessed it. The next day Gen. Banks called for one thousand volunteers to storm the enemy's works. Col. B. volunteered to lead one of the two battalions, but the fall of Vicksburg made the attack unnecessary, and the forlorn hope lost the opportunity of illustrating its bravery and patriotism. About the middle of August Gen. Banks reorganized the army, and put Col. Benedict in command of the First Brigade, Third Division of the Nineteenth Army Corps. He was engaged in the expedition against Sabine city under Gen. Franklin, and soon afterward was ordered to Brashear city, in western Louisiana. In the skirmish near Vermillion Bayou, he had the satisfaction of stopping the advance of the rebels who were driving our cavalry before them. His position was so well taken that his small force succeeded in repulsing the large masses of the enemy with a loss of but five killed and wounded. February 2, 1864, he arrived at Franklin, La., where the army was concentrated. Here was organized the Red River expedition. Col. B. was assigned to the command of the Third Brigade, First Division (Gen. Emory) Nineteenth Army Corps. The army moved the 15th of March. On the 8th of April, fifteen miles beyond Pleasant Hill, which was reached by the main army on the 7th, was fought the sanguinary battle of Pleasant Grove, which ended in a victory for the nationals, just as darkness covered the scene. "Nothing," said Gen. Banks in his report, "could surpass in impetuosity the assault of the enemy, but the inflexible steadiness and valor of our troops. The First Division of the Nineteenth Army Corps, by its great bravery in this action, saved the army and navy." Col. Benedict was especially commended for the manner in which he handled his brigade, which was mainly instrumental in effecting this repulse. The rebels receiving reinforcements, renewed the fight on the 9th, at Pleasant Hill, to which place our army had fallen back. The Third Brigade was posted, unsupported, on the extreme left of the line of battle. Towards evening the enemy made a desperate attempt to carry this, our weakest position, falling with several brigades upon Col. Benedict's small force of about 2,000 men. "Outnumbered as well as outflanked, and being without any near support, his brigade fell steadily back, fighting gallantly as they were pushed up the acclivity of Pleasant Hill. In the conflict down the slope at the first shock of the onset, and while rallying his men to a charge, Col. Benedict fell, pierced by five bullets." Lossing adds: "No better or more beloved soldier and citizen than he, gave his life for his country during the war." He was buried with civic and military honors in the Albany Rural Cemetery, May 2, 1864. His nomination as brevet brigadier-general United States volunteers, "for gallant conduct at Port Hudson, to date from March 13, 1865," was confirmed by the senate July 23, 1866.

"Henry Marvin Benedict, The Genealogy of the Benedicts in America,  (Joel Munsell, 82 State Street, Albany, NY, 1870), pages 212-213."

George W B, p 211.jpg (44724 bytes)"While fitting for college, at Franklin, Delaware county, in 1814, he was drafted into the army during the absence of his father, and ordered to march the next day for the defense of New York, then threatened with an attack by the British fleet. He remained in the service about two months, when his father procured a substitute for him, and he returned to his studies. He was examined and passed for admission to Hamilton College, but, the family removing to Chatham, he entered, Sept., 1815, the sophomore class of Williams College, and graduated in 1818, with the highest honors. After graduating he was, successively, principal of the academy in Westfield, Mass., tutor three years in Williams College, principal of the academy in Newburgh, professor in the University of Vermont, where he filled the chairs of mathematics, natural philosophy, chemistry and natural history, teaching chemistry in the university and in the medical college. He was secretary of the board of trustees for many years, and at separate periods was treasurer. In 1847 he closed his connection with the institution in consequence of ill health. During his professorship, while Prof. Farrand N. Benedict was engaged in the surveys and observations of the mountains of Northern New York, Prof. G. W. B. made observations at Burlington to synchronize with those at the superior stations, and their merit was acknowledged in Prof. Emmons's Geology of New York. In the language of one of his associate professors, who was in constant intimacy with him for many years: 'The University of Vermont, apparently expiring from the effects of the War of 1812, and from subsequent calamities, he inspired with new life. It is not invidious to his associates, who labored with him through this trying period of the institution, to say that he was preeminently efficient in originating and executing the measures that ultimately resulted in its renewed prosperity. Some of them have since been adopted by most of the American colleges. The course of study was remodeled, systematized, and enlarged, the standard of scholarship elevated, and a more vigorous discipline enforced. His paternal and genial intercourse with the students, gained for him a popularity among them that was rarely interrupted. He brought to bear upon the multiplied subjects of thought and labor to which the necessities of the institution called him, a clear and active mind, versatile powers and general erudition.' He was afterwards for many years connected with the public press, as proprietor and editor of the Burlington Free Press, a daily and weekly newspaper. He was twice elected to the senate of Vermont, after which he declined all candidacy for political office, although he has never ceased to feel a deep and patriotic interest in public affairs. He received the degree of LL. D. from the University of Vermont. A discourse delivered by him before the literary societies of the University of Vermont, on New England educational Institutions in relation to American Government, was published in 1844. He has resided at Burlington since 1825."

Erastus C B, p 216.jpg (36007 bytes)271. ERASTUS CORNELIUS7 LL. D. (Rev. Joel Tyler,6 Rev. Abner,5 Peter,4 James,3 John,2 Thomas1), b. March 19, 1800, Branford, Ct.; m. May 7, 1833, Caroline Margaret, dau. Moses Bloodgood of New York, b. Sept. 2, 1809. "The family removed to New York in 1803. In early life he had some experience in teaching, commencing in a common school in 1816, and ending as a tutor in Williams College in 1824. He entered the sophomore class in September, 1818, and graduated in 1821, when he took charge of the academy in Johnstown, and subsequently taught in the academy in Newburgh. As tutor in college, he taught the class of 1825 when juniors, and the class of 1826 when sophomores. His professional studies completed, at the end of the year 1824 he entered upon the practice of the law in the city of New York, where he has ever since been, and is now, a successful practitioner. When the common school system was extended to the city of New York, he was chosen among the first trustees of common schools, and subsequently, in 1850, was elected a member of the board of education for the city, of which board he was president for several years. He resigned his office as member of the board of education, in 1863, not, however, until he was generally recognized as among the first who were instrumental in consolidating and maturing the entire school system of New York city. The services he rendered--cooperating with likeminded men--in rearing the free academy, now the College of New York, are admitted by all. He was among the select number who confessedly laid the foundations of that 'Areopagus and royal home' of college advantages for the masses, in the city of N. Y. In 1855, he was appointed, by the legislature, one of the Board of Regents of the University of the State, which office he still holds. In 1840, he was elected a member of the common council of the city of New York. In 1848, he was a member of the state legislature, as, also, in 1864. He is an elder in the Reformed church, and was a member of the general synod in 1868. Mr. B. is the author of The American Admiralty, of which a new and enlarged edition is this year (1870) published; of A Run through Europe, a book of travels, of which the third edition was published in 1868; of the Hymn of Hildebert, and other medi'val hymns, with translations, of which a new and enlarged edition was published in 1869, and of various pamphlets, reviews, speeches, and addresses, on literary, religious, and political subjects, published at different times during the last thirty years, including The Beginning of America, the anniversary discourse before the New York Historical Society in 1863. In 1840, he delivered the anniversary address before the society of alumni of Williams College, and has established several prizes in that college. His degree of LL. D. was given him by Rutgers College, in 1865. This record, like all such, necessarily furnishes only a very imperfect view of Mr. Benedict's long and earnest professional and literary life. He assumed with confidence the grave responsibilities of manhood, when a mere boy, and from that time onward devoted himself with singular patience and steadiness of purpose, to the work of life. As a lawyer, the American bar will not permit any other place to be finally assigned him, except among the very first, if not the first, in the front rank of admiralty lawyers. His name has been made familiar to the profession throughout the country, by the work referred to above, which is everywhere a standard text-book; but far more by his practice as an admiralty lawyer, which, for nearly a half century, has been coextensive with our Atlantic coast. It is due to a record of this kind to fix, if possible, and perpetuate other personal characteristics. Mr. Benedict is distinguished as a hard worker outside his profession. As an officer of the New York Historical Society, a member of its executive committee for twenty-eight years, and now the chairman of that committee; as, also, in his relations as officer to various other societies--religious, charitable, and educational--his labors have been great. He has been a trustee of Williams College since 1855; manager of the association for improving the condition of the poor, since its organization, in 1848; manager of the American Art Union while it existed, and he has also been a governor of the State Woman's Hospital since its incorporation. Coleridge, in one of his aphorisms, asserts that there is no higher evidence of genius than the ability to maintain, in advancing years, the fresh, genial feelings of youth. All who know Mr. Benedict, will admit at once that he comes within Coleridge's rule. He is now, to all appearances, as laborious, as earnest, as hopeful, as much interested in his profession, and in plans for benefiting his fellow men, as when he first struck out. He is now interested as much as ever in the social, political, and moral questions which are engaging the attention of advancing minds, and, in aid of their solution, he brings not only ripeness, but wonderful freshness. The writer of this notice has endeavored to be a faithful contributor to history, and, in dismissing the subject of this notice, he simply says that he has nothing to fear from the impartial judgment of cotemporaries; as for the rest, it may be safely left to a future age, if not to other countries."

Charles and Catharine Kohler, b. Dec. 11, 1813. "He was educated at the Philosophical Seminary of Practical Science, at Troy. After graduating he devoted himself to teaching, and for a short time, as Professor of Chemistry and Natural Science. He soon, however, entered on the study of law in the city of New York, where he was admitted to the bar in the year 1832, and practised this profession until his death. Mr. Benedict was a man of strong sense and sound judgment; he possessed a mind of great independence. His conclusions were strictly his own (borrowing no color from the authority of mere name), and when formed, they were asserted with self-relying boldness, and maintained with unflinching firmness. He was a sound lawyer and a successful advocate; as a speaker he was exceedingly impressive, sententious and forcible. In social life, his wit and humor abounded, and together with the habitual use of the most expressive and purest English, gave to his conversation a somewhat epigrammatic and sententious character; but, under the control of his characteristic kindness of disposition, his wit was always without sting and his humor free from offensive raillery. He possessed great energy and determination of character, and called them into requisition whenever the object seemed to him to demand their exercise. He possessed a refined and cultivated taste, not only in literature, but also in art. He was unpretending, seeking no unearned reputation and making no ostentatious display of his intellectual endowments or of his prosperity. Mr. Benedict's sympathies were of the kindest character. He was social, hospitable, and exceedingly agreeable as a companion, never failing, notwithstanding his brusque manner, to treat his intimates with the same politeness that he extended to his mere acquaintances and strangers. Mr. Benedict was unaffectedly benevolent. The poor he never sent empty away, nor passed without leaving his mite. Many of us remember him as one of the original members of that excellent and noiseless charity, the Prison Association of New York. Here he labored assiduously in visiting dungeons and prisons, and in extending aid to those who, on being liberated from confinement, needed the aid of some kind hand to lead them in the ways of honest exertion, and secure them from temptations to crime. For these arduous labors there could be no consideration, no reward, except that which springs up in every benevolent heart from the performance of a benevolent action." Mr. B. and wife were lost in the steamship Arctic, which sunk after a collision with the Vesta, in 1854. We have quoted the words of Mr. E. Burr, who delivered a eulogy upon Mr. B. at a meeting of the New York bar, July 15, 1855.

Soon after the death of his father, he entered the counting-room of Mr. John A. Machado, an extensive shipping merchant in the African trade; and, after becoming acquainted with the business, spent some time at Gambia, in Africa, as a resident clerk, agent, and finally as partner, but, before the partnership was fully in progress, the great commercial revulsion of 1857 overwhelmed Mr. M., and Mr. Benedict returned to New York. He was soon employed by another house to proceed with a cargo to the English colony of Sierra Leone, and remain there as resident commercial agent. He died there, May 13, 1859, of the yellow fever. The newspapers of the colony spoke highly of him. A private letter said: "His funeral was attended by every one in the colony. Every respect was paid to his memory. The colors at the American consulate and on all the shipping in the harbor, were half-masted. He was deeply regretted by all, and by none more than ourselves."

Abner R B, p 219.jpg (44152 bytes)ABNER RALEIGH, b. Nov. 13, 1839. "He was educated in the schools and University of Burlington, Vt., where he was a universal favorite. In him, to energy, magnanimity and high spirit were added the attractions of a fine figure, and a face that was the mobile mirror of his noble nature. In 1854, he lost his parents in the Arctic, and shortly after, an elder sister and brother were taken from him. These terrible bereavements preyed upon his feelings and gave rise to a despondency which checked his naturally cheerful humor and playful wit. Like all men of intellectual refinement, he was modest and reserved. In short, he seems to have had all those delicate characteristics that were once popularly believed to unfit the possessor for 'the dread experience of arms.' Immediately after the breaking out of the war, he volunteered as a private in Col. Butterfield's regiment, which was one of the three that first left New York city for the seat of war. In August, 1861, however, he left the volunteer service, having received a commission as 2d Lieut. in the Fourth regular infantry. By his gallantry and coolness at Gaines' Mills, a most desperate and bloody fight, he won his first brevet. At second Bull Run, his clothing was repeatedly cut by bullets; at Antietam, he was under heavy fire. At Fredericksburg, Major Benedict commanded forty men of the strong picket line, that in the darkness, was pushed up to the enemy's main line, while our beaten army was retreating across the river. The orders were to hold position until relieved, and the intention was to withdraw the picket line before daylight should reveal its nearness to the enemy. By some fatal mistake, the line was not relieved as directed, and at daylight the enemy, from most destructive short range, opened fire. While Major Benedict was animating his men by his voice and his example, an officer of his brigade that was in full sight of the fight, noticing that he was made a special mark for the sharpshooters, said: 'Why the devil don't he walk zigzag?' Major Dryer, of the Fourth infantry, replied: 'Don't you know that Benedict is the last man to ever walk zigzag, with a brigade looking at him?' Major Benedict soon after fell, shot through the lungs with a minie ball, and was only rescued by the devotion of his men, several of whom were killed and wounded while carrying him out of fire, a gallant Irish sergeant falling dead with a bullet through his head, and the cheer, 'Hurrah! we've saved the lieutenant,' on his lips. This action gave him his second brevet. Wounded on the 14th of Dec., 1862, in less than three months Major Benedict was at Washington, reporting for duty, with his wound still open at the breast and back. Finally he got permission to go to the field, and joined his regiment at Chancellorsville, while the battle was in progress. At Gettysburg the wounding of his superiors placed him in command of his regiment, and he handled it amid all the carnage of that terrible day with great credit to himself. Shortly after Gettysburg, his health began to fail him, his wounded lung showing evident signs of weakness and irritation. In spite of his failing health, he still sought field duty, and for some time commanded the Fourth infantry as the body guard of Lieut.-General Grant's headquarters during the Petersburg campaign. He was last stationed at Plattsburg barracks, leaving there to seek a warmer station, but the gallant fellow had been living for a year on nothing but sheer pluck, and from this time he gradually sank, until death relieved him from his great suffering, June 15, 1867. The funeral took place from the house of his uncle, Hon. E. C. Benedict, New York city. The usual religious services were held at the house, and a detachment of troops from Governor's Island, accompanied by the military band and field drum corps, gave the body military escort. To the sound of the long pealing dirges and muffled drums, the body of the hero, wrapped in the folds of the flag for which he died, was borne to the tomb."

"At the age of 16 he was nominated for a cadetship in the Naval Academy, and came to New York to prepare for his examination. He, however, unknown to his uncle and guardian, Erastus C. Benedict, enlisted in the 102d N. Y. Vols., then in the field in Virginia, under the assumed name of Joseph Prentiss. Ten days after he joined his regiment it went into the battle of Cedar Mountain, and he was left on the field wounded in the thigh, which was thereby paralysed. He succeeded in reaching our lines, was placed in hospital, and after several months discharged as disabled and entitled to a pension. Returning to his uncle's house, he there found his brother Abner lying, having been shot through the lungs at Fredericksburg. The hospital experience of Erastus made him a useful companion to his sick brother. Under new treatment his disability ceased, and he reenlisted, but was rejected by the examining surgeon. Being then sent to an academy in the interior, by his guardian, he remained a few weeks, and then enlisted in the 12th N. Y. cavalry as a corporal, and remained with the regiment, serving in N. C., until the end of the war. He then resumed his studies, but enlisted in a few months in the regular cavalry, and was sent to the western plains Being under age, and having enlisted without the consent of his guardian, he was finally discharged."

He was soon induced to remove to Huntingdon, Pa., to take charge of the Huntingdon Journal, a political newspaper, as publisher and editor. After proper preparatory studies he was admitted to the bar and practised law there with ability and success, his success being impaired by his connection with journalism and party politics. In 1849 he was appointed deputy secretary of state of Pennsylvania, and removed to Harrisburgh, the political capital of the state, continuing his practice as counsel; subsequently, having removed again to Huntingdon, he resumed his practice fully. In 1855 he was chosen clerk of the house of representatives of Pennsylvania. In 1863 he was elected a member of that body, and in 1864 was again elected clerk, and continued to fill the office by reelection till his death. During the rebellion he was secretary of the central state committee of the union party residing during the election campaign in Philadelphia, and devoting himself constantly to the duties of that office as practical manager. He was a good lawyer, an able advocate, a sagacious and patriotic politician, an eloquent and convincing public speaker on political topics, a laborious legislator, a reliable friend, a good citizen, and a consistent Christian, a member of the Presbyterian church. In all his opinions he was a man of deep and earnest convictions, and in his conduct was fearless and upright, and everywhere highly esteemed." He d. April 28, 1867.

Smith of Upperville, Va., by whom he had three children, all of whom died in infancy. She d. Jan. 23, 1841; m. 2d, July 18, 1849, at Leesburg, Va., Mrs. Henrietta Henderson, b. Jan. 1, 1814. She was a widow, and a dau. of John and Harriet Gray. "He began his preparatory course for college, in 1827, at the Rochester Academy, under the care and tuition of his brother Farrand, who was principal of that institution. Here he attained the first rank in both the departments of language and introductory mathematics, and remained till 1831, when he entered the junior class of the University of Vermont. He left his class in the last term of his senior year to take the place of principal of the Upperville Academy, Va., which his brother Farrand had resigned. This compelled him to forego his bachelor's degree. He subsequently took his master's degree. After losing his wife and children, he was appointed professor of mathematics in the United States Navy, and in this capacity he passed three years in the Mediterranean. On his return he retired, under furlough, to Leesburg, Va., when he became principal of the Leesburg Academy. In 1848 he was appointed to duty as professor in the United States Observatory at Washington. He remained there till his last sickness, when he removed with his wife and two daughters to Leesburg, where he died June 20, 1853. He was a thorough scholar, accomplished in mathematics and natural philosophy, including astronomy, and sacrificed his health, and finally his life to his fidelity and industry as an astronomical observer."

Abner B, p 227.jpg (39017 bytes)277. ABNER,7 A. M. (Rev. Abner,6 Rev. Abner,5 Peter,4 James,3 John,2 Thomas1), b. Feb. 18, 1823, at Mentz; m. Oct. 10, 1849, Catharine E., dau. Henry I. and Margaret (Kohler) Knapp, b. 1829. "At the age of seven, he lost both his parents, who died within a few days of each other, at Brighton. His father's family was then broken up and scattered, no two of its members meeting for several years. This separation occurring when he was so young, it required in after years a formal introduction to make him known again to each of his brothers and sisters. He was taken into the family of his brother, Farrand N., when ten years old. He was graduated at the University of Vermont in 1843, and received the degree of A. M. in 1846. The following year he passed as preceptor of the Milton Academy in Vermont. He had charge of the Essex county Academy, Westport, through the year 1845. In the years 1846 and 1847 he edited the Whitehall Chronicle, at Whitehall, when he removed to New York city, where he was admitted to the bar in January, 1848, and where he has since been a successful practitioner. During the time he edited the Chronicle, the circulation of the paper was more than double as the result of his literary contributions. He acquired a reputation in college as a writer of force, which reputation has been maintained by occasional addresses and contributions to newspapers and periodicals. An article by him on the admiralty law in Hunt's Merchants' Magagine, was widely noticed at the time as an able, readable and valuable paper. It is to be found in the 23d vol. of that work. He delivered the annual address (1869) before the Franklin Electrical Institute. Nervous and imaginative by inheritance, he is very vivacious, impulsive and emotional. He was vice-president of a union league club in Westchester Co., throughout the late war, which office was no sinecure. His readings are general, with a proclivity to philosophical and metaphysical enquiry, and to abstract thought. In social intercourse his conversational powers are striking. He is epigrammatic, humorous, often witty, always 'short, clear and surprising,' and ready at repartee. He is a good lawyer, but his characteristic habits and tastes have prevented professional subjects from absorbing his mind and efforts, and carrying him to that eminence at the bar, which he might easily have attained. Whereever he has been known, he has been esteemed an earnest, thoughtful scholar, and has always identified himself, in small things as well as great, with the party of progress and reform, fighting against any odds in the fullest confidence that the right is sure to prevail sooner or later."
