Abstract: “At the May Session, 1776, the General Assembly of Connecticut (i)n view of the alarming movements of the British troops, voted to raise two regiments, and appointed David Waterbury, Jr. to be colonel of one of them to be stationed at or near New London.   Gov. Trumbull called the General Assembly together again on the 14th of June to take into consideration the requisitions of Congress of the 1st and 3d of June, for reinforcements to the armies at New York and in Canada. It accordingly met and cheerfully granted the reinforcements required. That for the Northern Department consisted of two regiments, and Col. Waterbury was appointed a brigadier general for that Department. This force was promptly raised, and arrived at New York July 5th and 6th, at Saratoga July 12th, and two or three days later at Skenesborough, where a dock yard had been established, in which a fleet was being constructed for Lake Champlain; and to the command of that post Gen. Waterbury was assigned.” James M. Hadden

Abstract: “Thursday, August 30th (1744). – I left Norwalk at seven in the morning, and rid ten miles of stony road, crossing several brooks and rivulets that run into the Sound, till I came to Stanford (Stamford). A little before I reached this town, from the top of a stony hill I had a large open view or prospect of the country westward. The greatest part of it seemed, as it were, covered with a white crust of stone, for the country here is exceedingly rocky, and the roads very rough, rather worse than Stonington. I breakfasted at Stanford at one Ebenezer Weak’s. In this town I saw a new church, which is now a-building, the steeple of which was no sooner finished than it was all tore to pieces by lightning in a terrible thunder-storm that happened here upon the first day of August in the afternoon. I observed the rafters of the steeple split from top to bottom and the wooden pins or trunnels that fastened the joints half drawn out. While I was at breakfast at Weak’s, there came in a crazy old man, who complained much of the hardness of the times and of pains in his back and belly. ‘Lackaday for poor old Joseph!’ said the landlady. A little after him came in one Captain Lyon, living at Rye bridge. He wore an affected air of wisdom in his phiz, and pretended to be a very knowing man in the affairs of the world. He said he had travelled the whole world over in his fancy, and would fain have persuaded us that he understood the history of mankind completely. Most of his knowledge was pedantry, being made up of commonplace sentences and trite proverbs. I asked him if I should have his company down the road. He replied that he would be glad to wait on me, but had an appointment to eat some roast pig with a neighbour of his, which would detain him till the afternoon. So I departed the town without him.” Alexander Hamilton, pp. 207-208.                                                   (Thursday, August 30th, 1744) ……. “I passed thro’ Horseneck (Greenwich), a scattered town, at half an hour after eleven o’clock, and passed over Rye Bridge at twelve, the boundary of Connecticut and York Government, after having rid 155 miles in Connecticut Government. ‘FAREWELL, Connecticut’ (said I, as I passed along the bridge), ‘I have had a surfeit of your ragged money, rough roads, and enthusiastick people’.”   Alexander Hamilton, p. 209.

The authorities ordered him to immediately remove it from the streets. So, he brought the machine home and scrapped it. In 1871 he went on to invent the Ingersoll rock drill. At the time this article was written, the house was owned by Huntington Adams, who restored it under the guidance of Parker Morse Hooper, Architect.

Abstract: “[September 11, 1781]
Arnold’s fleet was still in the Sound, and further depredations were expected; they were this morning at Killingsworth, and about noon 50 sail of vessels came to anchor between Norwalk and Stamford. Major Tallmadge, who was returning, upon supposition that the enemy had returned to New-York, was ordered back immediately. Maj. Knapp was detached with 100 men to reinforce Col. Putnam on the lines; and Brig. Gen. Huntington, with the first Connecticut brigade, and a detachment of artillery was ordered to march towards the Sound. The same day, the army moved from its encampment at Peek’s-Kill, and took a very strong position on Bald Hill, where it encamped in one line, the second line forming in the centre of the first, and the 8th Massachusetts regiment was ordered to march from the army, and reinforce the garrison of West-Point.

[September 13, 1781]
Intelligence was received, that on the enemy’s anchoring off Stamford, Maj. Tallmadge advanced towards the town; Gen. Huntington had advanced as far as Bedford; and that the preceding morning the enemy’s fleet came to sail, and stood principally to the westward; some of the fleet, at the same time, standing over to Huntington Bay, Long-Island, Maj. Tallmadge was to remain at or near Canaan [Parish], for the protection of the inhabitants; Gen. Huntington to return to the army.”       William Heath, pp. 308-309.

Abstract: “It is a very serious matter for a large company when an infection gets started through its dairy products. For the small man it may simply mean the loss of trade for a short time. It is seldom that a small dealer has suitable apparatus in which to sterilize milk cans before returning them to the farmers; and the farmers practically never have such sterilizers. The consequence is that the cans passing from the farmer to the small dealer and back again may be the means of spreading infection in both directions. This was most graphically illustrated in an epidemic of typhoid fever which broke out at Stamford, Connecticut, in April, 1895. Between April 15 and May 28 three hundred and eighty-six cases living in one hundred and sixty houses had been reported. Ninety-one and two-tenths per cent of these cases lived in houses taking milk from one dealer. Sixteen others got milk from the same source indirectly, as at a café, making a total of 95.3 per cent of the cases directly traceable to one dealer, who obtained his supply from several farmers. These same farmers also supplied milk to other parties, and each one had one or more cases upon his private routes. Only four cases out of the total showed no relationship with dealer B. The infection in this epidemic was traced to the rinsing of the milk cans, after washing, with water from an infected source at B’s place. Such illustrations show a reasonableness under modern conditions in forcing the small man out of business, unless he be prepared to carry out in full sanitary provisions.”   Henry Bixby Hemenway, pp. 659-660.

Despite her family’s interest in European and Asian art, Electra Havemeyer Webb ventured into collecting Americana at a time when very few individuals were earnestly engaged in this newly emerging field of folk art. One day while her family was in residence at their Greenwich estate, Electra, drove into Stamford where she noticed a wooden cigar store Indian. In talking to the business’ proprietor, it was offered to her for $15. Returning home, she obtained the money and set out for Stamford with the estate’s foreman and a wagon. Upon coming back, her mother was not at all pleased with this purchase. But, as with many people in possession of vision or foresight, Electra knew exactly what she was doing. This first acquisition began a lifetime of collecting, eventually guiding her in establishing the Shelburne Museum, Shelburne, Vermont.

In traveling through this area Jesse Lee, the noted Methodist preacher, established a church which was erected in the section known as Dantown.   One can still see the cemetery which was adjacent to it, located just over the boundary line into Pound Ridge, New York. In January 1841, there was a rift within the congregation resulting in one group leaving to form the High Ridge Methodist Episcopal Society. In June of that year a new church was erected on its current site. Significant additions were made to the structure in the late 1850’s and 1882. Horse sheds were built in 1880. As a result of widening High Ridge Road, the old High Ridge schoolhouse was moved and made part of the church hall in 1929.

Abstract: “Fortunately for the community, Stamford Health System’s Carl & Dorothy Bennett Cancer Center has spent the last five years establishing a breast center that will open next spring in the new Health Center on Strawberry Hill, the site of the former St. Joseph’s Medical Center. In addition to its diagnostic treatment, the facility will incorporate a 40,000-square-foot fitness institute. According to Gail Evans, vice president of planning and corporate communications, services will include genetic and prevention counseling, nutrition, and such integrated medicines as therapeutic touch, meditation and stress management.”   Brenda Himelfarb, p. 50.   (Copyright 2001 by Living In Stamford.

Abstract: “As terrifying as her experience was, Callie had one thing to be grateful for. Because she was assaulted in the Stamford area, she quickly found herself surrounded by one of the best social-service networks in the state. Working together in a tightly knit network little-known to those outside it, the Sexual Assault Crisis Center, the Stamford Police Department, the court system and Stamford Hospital converge when a victim comes forward to report a sexual assault. 

SACC is based in Stamford and serves Greenwich, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston and Westport. Cathy Malloy, who was named executive director in January believes Stamford’s is one of the strongest victim support networks around. Her goal is to reach out in communities like New Canaan and Darien, which don’t have hospitals that can refer victims to the center’s counseling services. 
Although crime overall has been dropping – Stamford has been rated the fifth safest city in the country by the FBI – the number of reported sexual assaults, including rape, incest, sexual harassment and inappropriate touching is rising.

From July to December 2000, 67 rapes out of a total of 197 sexual assaults were reported to the Sexual Assault Crisis Center, up 3 percent over the same period in 1999.

The Stamford Police Department investigated 35 reported rapes in 1999. In 2000, 10 rapes were reported to Stamford Police. And consider this: only 10 percent of all rapes are reported, according to Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Services Inc., the SACC’s parent organization. When the attacker is known to the victim, that number drops to 4 percent. Contrary to popular perception, more than 80 percent of rapists are known to their victims.”     Deborah DiSesa Hirsch, pp. 46-47.   (Copyright 2001 by Living In Stamford.

Abstract: “Stamford is not only growing, but also changing rapidly. That is an important distinction, since most would not object to expansion and the perks it brings, but human nature drives quite a few people to oppose change with a passion.

Blessed to live in a democratic society, people in towns and cities around the United States actively participate in the development of their locales – bringing their approval or opposition to official meetings and street talk. Stamford is no different, and is spearheading economic and demographic growth both regionally and nationally.” Deborah DiSessa Hirsch.     (Copyright 2006 by Canaiden LLC.

Abstract: “My Brethren, it has pleased that GOD, who has a sovereign Right to dispose of all Men, and especially of the Ministers of the Gospel, who are eminently his Servants, but a few Months ago, to remove by Death your late faithful Pastor * [The Rev. Mr. Ebenezer Wright, who died May 4, 1746, Anno AEtatis 40.], who was a burning and shining Light in this Candlestick, tho’ it was not a long Season you were allowed to rejoice in his Light. As he was taken from you in such a Season, when, upon many Accounts, his abiding in the Flesh seemed to be very needful for you, your Friends had dark and gloomy Apprehensions with Regard to the Design and Event of so sore a Rebuke of GOD’s righteous Providence. Our Hearts even trembled for the Ark of GOD with you. But we see the Residue of the Spirit is with GOD. The Gospel Ministry is an invaluable Treasure, but we have it in earthen Vessels, such as are very brittle and easily broken, and one Design of this is, That the Excellency of the Power may be of God, and not of us. Ministers must die, but CHRIST lives, the Under-Shepherds are removed, but the great Shepherd of the Sheep neve[r] leaves his Flock. His gracious Presence with them is eminently seen in preserving them from being scatered, like Sheep that have no Shephered, when their faithful Pastors are taken from them, and in supplying them with others who shall feed and guide them.”   Noah Hobart, p. 32.

Abstract: “Factory work in the Famine era was characterized by long hours, dangerous conditions and low pay …..   Explosions were frequent and deadly. …… The explosion of an eight-ton steam boiler at the Cove Extract Works in Stamford in 1847 killed, among others, Irish emigrant William Dawson, and severely injured his brother Michael. The explosion destroyed the building in which the boiler was located and lifted the boiler itself 20 feet in the air and deposited it 60 feet away. Twenty-five-old William Dawson, who was so badly scalded that he died before the next morning, was buried in the Catholic cemetery in New Rochelle, N. Y.

Abstract: “We are celebrating seventy five years of our existence as a parish – Holy Name of Jesus – the Polish American Roman Catholic Community of Stamford, Connecticut, USA. In the history of the world a span of seventy five years is almost a zero. In the history of a country – placed alongside Poland, a venerable patriarch of over one thousand years of birthdays, our parish on its seventy fifth birthday is merely an infant. Placed alongside the beloved country, the United States of America, which gave birth to and nurtured our parish, we can stand tall and proud of our seventy five years. As a parish community we are far past the adolescent stage in the making of the history of our country. We have contributed our blood, sweat and tears to the growth of this nation for over one third of its existence in the history of the world.       Now here lies the final reason for the importance of observing seventy five years of existence – the human reason – the importance to each individual human being – and this is what makes the world go around. Seventy five years in the life of an individual is the history of his world. It’s the beginning and end of his world. The average life span in our beloved USA is an average of seventy one years of existence on God’s earth.       It is with these thoughts that we present this Diamond Jubilee Memorial Volume. Through the history and the chronology and the illustrated manifestations of activities, may it emphasize the necessity and the importance of a celebration and commemoration such as ours. May the untold, unsung and unheralded sacrifices of our parents and grandparents inspire us to follow in their footsteps. May our devotion and sacrifice and generous heart inspire our children to follow in our footsteps.” Monsignor Alphonse J. V.

Abstract: “Bishop Lori, My Brother Priests, our Beloved Sisters, Parishioners and Friends.
Allow me now to say a few words about the magnificent church of ours that was built under the leadership of Monsignor Wladasz. Incidentally, we must not forget that he also was responsible for the building of Holy Name School and the purchase of a convent that was renovated and matched in stone to the exterior of our church.

The cornerstone of this church was blessed by Bishop Nilan of Hartford, CT in 1925, when all of Connecticut was one diocese. However, the entire church structure was completed and opened Christmas day, 1934. In the meantime, from 1925 to 1934, what we see here downstairs was the original church.

Can you imagine the church structure itself, without furnishings, was built for $210,000 and the school, 14 rooms, and a gymnasium, was built for $167,000? Today you cannot buy a house or a condominium in Stamford or in this area for those same amounts.

Monsignor Wladasz had foresight. He built the Church for the future, for beauty, for stability and that’s why now, a hundred years later, we are able to enjoy and be proud of our church, that can match any church in New England or in the eastern part of the United States. Did you know that the beautiful stained-glass windows were imported from Munich, Germany? Did you know that the baldachino of marble, over the altar was imported from Italy? Did you know that the marble pulpit, the Communion rail, all the frescoes, the ceiling paintings, the mosaics also were purchased from Italy? Our church, indeed, is a spectacular house of God! It is unique, one of its kind in the whole United States. It is a church that we can take great pride as parishioners, a church that is the envy of many people who visit here.

So, on this 100th Anniversary, we have reason to rejoice and to be Thankful to God. First of all for the pioneers, our parents and our grandparents and for you, the living parishioners who have sacrificed time, talents and resources to renovate and to build this church. We must be thankful to all nine previous pastors and our current pastor, Father Stanley Staniszewski, thankful to all former assistant pastors who shared their priestly talents and gifts in providing for our spiritual needs, thankful to all the nuns, who dedicated years of teaching you and me and the thousands of children who attended Holy Name School, and thankful to you for continuing to worship, to pray, to sing and to praise God and to support the maintenance of the church and its parish programs and activities.

In conclusion, let us promise to continue to support this memorable church and not to forget what those who preceded us have done in preserving what we are able to enjoy today.

May God reward our forefathers, our predecessors, our priests, nuns and laity and the many benefactors, living and deceased, for this beautiful, attractive and worshipful House of God, and God bless you all! Bóg zaplac wszystkim!”

Abstract: “I spent great part of the summer of 1777 at Newburyport, preaching to the congregation, which was then, I believe, the largest in America, being destitute by the then late death of Mr. Parsons. The next winter I spent at Canterbury in Connecticut, preaching to a destitute congregation there. And early in the spring I went to Stamford, to a destitute congregation, to which I preached during the summer of 1778. And in the fall of that year I left the old town of Stamford, and preached to a parish in the same town, then called Woodpecker-Ridge, now called North Stamford. Here I had my wife and one daughter with me, and continued here through the winter and summer of 1779, and the winter of 1780. In the spring of that year my wife and daughter went to Great Barrington and I went to Newport, the British having left it the fall before.” Samuel Hopkins, p. 77.

Abstract: “During the spring and summer of 1778, he supplied the pulpit of his deceased classmate, Dr. Noah Wells, at Stamford, Connecticut. From the autumn of 1778 to the spring of 1780, he preached in North Stamford, which was then a missionary field. He endeavored to cultivate it by a system of pastoral visitation. But he found here, as elsewhere, that the people were afraid of him. ‘On one occasion he called on a family, and as soon as he was descried by the younger members of it, they all fled. After sitting some time, he told the father that he wished to offer prayer, and to have the youth and children called into the room. After much lingering and many expressions of timidity, on his part as well as on theirs, he began to pray; and he manifested so much pathos and tenderness, that all the members of the family were affected to tears, and one or two of them became, from that interview, personally interested in religion.’ * (MS Letter of Rev. Fuller) From his correspondence we learn, that he adopted measures for organizing a church in this parish. One was formed soon after he removed to his Newport (R. I.) home.”   Vol. 1, pp. 96-97.

Abstract: “One Atlantic Street is a successful conversion of a former single-occupant bank headquarters that had failed the test of rental as multiple-tenant offices without a major overhaul. Designed by Benjamin Morris and completed in 1929, the eight-story building was then the tallest in Stamford. Recently, many larger, newer office buildings had crowded this historic predecessor out of an overbuilt market. 

’Our belief is that a well-built classical building with state-of-the-art interiors can be more than competitive with any new property,’ says Culpen & Woods senior partner Harry Culpen of their $2.9 million renovation of the 100,000-square-foot dowager. The current full occupancy proves his point – as well as having yielded his firm several design commissions for individual tenants’ offices.”   Charles K.

Abstract: “The Rev. Mr. Dibblee, the Society’s Missionary at Stamford, in his Letter dated March 25, 1761, returns his hearty Thanks to the Society for past Favours, and promises his utmost Endeavours to deserve the Continuance of them by Diligence and Fidelity. He writes further, That upon making a Visit to the People of West Chester, (who were at that Time without a Missionary) he paid his Respects to the worthy Mr. St. George Talbot, a Gentleman of great Piety, Zeal, and Charity, who, besides the Benefaction to the Church of Rye, of 600 £. New York Currency, has also given a like Sum for the Encouragement of Religion among the poor People of North Castle; a like Benefaction to the Church of Flushing in Long Island; and (as we learn from another Letter of Mr. Dibblee’s, dated Sept. 29, 1761,) has judged the Church of Stamford worthy of his Charity, and made them also a free Donation of 600 £. New York Currency, to be improved hereafter as the Society shall direct, or Mr. Talbot shall prescribe by his Last Will. Mr. Dibblee prays God to reward their generous Benefactor, and hopes himself to improve every Encouragement he meets with, by labouring to be as extensively useful as he can.
Mr. Dibblee adds, That his People continue in a peaceable, united State; paying, in general, a due Regard to all the Offices of Religion, in all Parts of his extensive Mission. He writes, That the Dissenters at Greenwich, in Concurrence with the Churchpeople, have requested him to attend Divine Service there on Sundays, as often as is consistent with the other Duties of his Cure: Which good Disposition he endeavours to improve, not only by allotting them one Sunday in Eight, but also by preaching to them every Sunday after Evening Service is over at Stamford, so long as he shall be able to atend three Services. The Heads of Families in Stamford, Greenwich, and the Parishes belonging to them are 152; actual Communicants 53; Infants baptized within the Year 56; Adults 3.”   An abstract of the Proceedings of the Society, pp. 42-44.

Abstract: “According to Census 2000 figures, about half of all Americans are involved in some form of stepfamily relationship, and stepfamilies are predicted to outnumber nuclear families by 2007. In addition, the Stepfamily Foundation says that every day in the United States, 1,300 couples with children under 18 remarry, and nearly half of all women are likely to live in a stepfamily relationship when living-together arrangements are included. 

Being a stepmother ‘is a very difficult role to take up and is often a thankless task,’ says Leslie Freedman, a Stamford based clinical psychologist who works with couples and families on marital, divorce and remarriage issues. ‘A stepmother is in a relationship not only with her husband, but also with his kids and their biological mother. It can be a lot to handle. There are lots of demands, expectations and opportunities for disappointment and resentment.’

According to Freedman, a stepmother typically faces a number of difficulties, including the inevitable, often unspoken, rivalry between her stepchildren’s biological mother and herself; feelings of being caught in the middle between her husband and his former wife, especially if they have a poor relationship or are engaged in ongoing litigation; feelings of resentment and divided loyalties from her stepchildren; and a lack of decision-making authority, especially in matters of discipline. As many stepmothers will attest, ‘It’s very hard to parent a child who’s in your household only part time,’ he notes. 

In addition, there is the pressure that comes from living in our region, he says. The complexity of one’s life increases dramatically when one is a stepmother. The quick pace of life in Fairfield County and the general pressures we experience here add to the complexity and can be a real challenge. ‘There’s a lot of juggling to do,’ Freedman says.
This month, as mothers are honored on the 13th, Living In Stamford would like to pay tribute to the often-overlooked women who have willingly taken on the responsibility of helping raise their partners’ children by profiling three Stamford women who are active in their stepchildren’s lives and share a unique bond with them.”   Kelly Clark Humiston, pp. 41-42.   (Copyright 2001 by Living In Stamford.

Abstract: “Wednesday, October 19 [1785]
We passed through the small village of Sorput [Sawpits] [Portchester], and a little farther on crossed the River Byrams (over a bridge), which divides the state of New York and Connecticut. 

The first town we came to in this state was Horseneck [Greenwich], sweetly situated near the Miamos River, which we crossed a mile further on. The evening began now to shut in fast, and the road being almost as bad as that of the Green Mountains, which I have formerly described, we began to be anxious to get to our journey’s end. At last it grew so dark that I just let my horse take his chance and pick his way. There was one comfort – in passing houses every five minutes, though I cannot imagine how they make it out, for the land seems to produce nothing but pines and rocks in abundance. We now and then (before it was dark) got a pleasing peep of the sound and Long Island. Though the country is barren just here, the views are delightfully romantic, and on horseback you can pick your way in the worst of roads. It’s quite different from being in a carriage.

We arrived at Stamford, situated upon a river of the same name, which we crossed, quarter before seven, and put up at Mrs. Well’s [Webb’s?]. I could not help remarking what a tone they spoke with. …

Stamford, Thursday, October 20 [1785]
I rose this morning at seven, mounted my horse, and left Stamford at half an hour past. … The country, notwithstanding the rocky soil, is very thick settled, and Indian corn planted in their orchards and wherever it will grow. …

Norwalk. General Tryon was here with 3,500 men and burned about 150 houses – among the rest, Mr. Betsey’s. The inhabitants were almost all ruined, and some of them killed. They had a few militia to resist at first, who were soon obliged to run, and the British burned all before them. Fairfield shared much the same fate.

I left this place at ten and soon after fell in with a Mr. Waring, who as he was going to Newhaven desired to accompany me. His conversation about poor Major André was very interesting. He was under the gallows at the time the Major was hung. 

Talking about this state, he said in general the people were very happy. None of them are very rich, or very poor. They are mostly all farmers, who live comfortably within themselves upon the produce of their own ground, which consists chiefly of rye, barley, oats, Indian corn, potatoes, etc. They sow no wheat on account of a worm that destroys it and are now obliged to purchase that article chiefly from the state of New York. Formerly the wheat succeeded amazingly well here and they now find the difference of sending their money out of the country to purchase that which used to bring them in so much.” Robert Hunter, Jr., pp. 141-143.

Abstract: “The Stamford Advocate of November 13, 1868, reported completion of the History Of Stamford and went on to describe and praise Huntington’s coverage of the town’s settlement, the Revolutionary War, separation of Darien, sketches of prominent citizens, and the lists of public officials for both Stamford and Darien. As to the research, effort and time devoted to the book by the author it was stated that `no one can judge, excepting those who have attempted similar tasks.’   ….   One week before Thanksgiving it was reported in the Stamford Advocate that the first two hundred copies were finished at the binder’s and due to arrive before the holiday: `… in all probability many of our readers can peruse it while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner.’ Inasmuch as most of Thanksgiving Day, 1868, was cold and rainy, many citizens of Stamford no doubt took this advice and began to examine the Reverend Huntington’s book which would endure from their century to the next and beyond.” Ronald Marcus, pp. vii-viii.   (“The Harbor Hill Books rights were purchased in 1992 by Picton Press,” Camden, Maine.

Abstract: Estelle F. Feinstein, Stamford from Puritan To Patriot – The Shaping of a Connecticut Community 1641-1774. (1976), p. 215 states, “The Rev. Huntington was a Congregational Minister and an avid local historian who produced a valuable compendium.”             For a review of this work, see: New Englander and Yale review, Vol. 28, Issue 107, (April 1869), pp. 435-436.           “After my Introductory Chapter, which is largely prefatory, there is need of but a very brief, formal preface. My dedication expressed my sense of obligation to seven of the sons of Stamford, without whose pecuniary aid the publication of this work must have been deferred. To another son of the town, whose name I must not give, I am under the same obligation. To many others of our citizens my obligations cannot be forgotten, as long as the record remains which they aided me in making, or while my long subscription list reminds me of their interest in my work. To all these, I now gratefully submit this History of the beautiful town, which I know they delight to honor.   In doing so, I could wish its omissions and its faults were fewer: yet I am most of all content, that whatever of either are noticed, were unavoidable. For one omission, rendered necessary both by the size and the expense of the volume, and still more by the merits of the subject itself, demanding fuller and more careful treatment, I trust my readers will find the best possible compensation in the forthcoming STAMFORD SOLDIERS’ MEMORIAL.   Of its mechanical execution, the History will speak for itself. For the few typographical errors here found, the considerate reader will surely find large amends in the general accuracy of the work; and both the author and his townsmen have just occasion for pride, that our local press has been able to send forth so large a volume, to which so few exceptions can be taken.   If nothing further is done, in this contribution to our local history, the author is happy to submit these first fruits, at least, of the full harvests of these two hundred and twenty eight years.” Elijah Baldwin Huntington, p. viii.

Also Families represented by two or more sons, and Index to names of volunteers.   This work is confined to the Civil War exclusively.”                                 “This STAMFORD SOLDIER’S MEMORIAL has no higher aim than to report worthily the service which the representatives of the town rendered during the recent civil war. Believing it to have been an honorable and patriotic service, it seemed to the author, due to the men who rendered it, that some record of it should be preserved. Nor did it seem less due to the credit of the town, that so important a feature of its history should be sketched while the materials for it were still within our reach. Indeed, the record which follows is but a fulfillment of the first intent of the author, in projecting the History of the town, and very appropriately follows as its supplement. …   In this MEMORIAL, we have aimed to include every name which has represented the town, in the military and naval service which it is its special aim to report. No one of these names could well be spared from the list. Every one had its value in the great contribution, thus made. Even deserters had already, though unwittingly, it may have been, contributed the influence of numbers to the cause, often, when numbers have answered instead of battles.   …   The author in bringing these pleasant labors of months to an end would here express his heartiest thanks to the many personal friends, whose words of kindly encouragement have been a frequent benediction on his work. Never, altogether unrewarded, is any toil which draws its inspiration from the sympathy of such friends. To them, therefore, and to all the good citizens of the town, who share in the honor of every record which honors the town itself, these humble contributions to its history and patriotism are most gratefully commended by the author.”   Elijah Baldwin Huntington, pp. 5-8.
