Excerpt from Biographical Encyclopedia of Massachusetts of the Nineteenth Century, Vol. 2

Biography scientifically presents the ancestry of its subjects for brief and interested examination. In no section of the world have family records been preserved with such painstaking care and accuracy as in the State of Massachusetts. It is matter of public congratulation that such is the case. Ralph Waldo Emerson affirmed that man is what the mother makes him. Much of truth as there undoubtedly is in that dictum, it does not express the whéle truth. Past generations as well as the beloved mother have been concerned in the building of the man. Physical peculiarities, psychical aptitudes, and mental tendencies have been transmitted to him by his ancestors. The faults or virtues of progenitors modify the moral responsibility of living descendants. This is often pleaded in extenuation of the wrong of habitual alcoholism. It is equally true of those in whom no such appetite exists. The noble and godly fathers of the New England col onies believed that in improving their own intellectual powers, and elevating their own moral nature by watchful self-discipline, they were not merely benefiting themselves, but that they were improving the mental and moral constitution which their children should inherit from them. That this sublime faith was founded in fact, the pages of this volume amply attest.
