bullet Dorcas F. PITKIN was born on 19 Aug 1824 in Marshfield, Vermont. She died on 22 Dec 1891 in Marshfield, Vermont. Died of pneumonia. She was buried in Dwinell Cemetery, Marshfield, Vermont. The following note was written by Fred Pitkin in 1943" "Father's Uncle Stephen Pitkin gave the town the Village Cem. together with fence with stone posts. Size 190 links square. In 1861 Eli Pitkin sold Geo. Wooster land at the north, south and west of the Cem. Later a Wooster was buried on that land, just over the fence from the Village Cem., though an 1856 law forbade burying a person within 20 rds. of a dwelling. Eli did not object. Later when Dorcas Pitkin, wife of Steven Wooster was buried in the Wooster lot, Eli objected." Perhaps Eli wanted his sister to be buried within the cemetery proper, and not on private propery. Dorcas is listed in the membership role of the Universalist Society of Liberal Christianity of Marshfield as Dorcas F. Wooster.

The 1860 census of Marshfield, Vt. lists Dorcas, 35, in the household of her husband, John. S. Wooster, farmer, 36, real estate $3000, personal $600. This farm was next door to that of her parents.

bullet Edwin PITKIN Photo was born on 11 Sep 1798 in Marshfield, Vermont. He died on 15 Aug 1862 in Marshfield, Vermont. He was buried in Dwinell Cemetery, Marshfield, Vermont. Edwin Pitkin built the house now owned by Ronald Pitkin (1993), and farmed there on what is now known as the Edwin Pitkin farm. It is very likely that Edwin was responsible for clearing and cultivating most of the fields there, although Caleb Putnam had previously lived on the farm, and may have begun the work of improving the land. Caleb had been a partner of Simeon Dwinell, Olive's father, and the two men had married sisters, so Caleb was in fact Olive's uncle. The farm was located between the homes of Edwin's parents and Olive's parents. Olive grew up on the Simeon Dwinell farm at the four corners above the Dwinell school and cemetery, and Edwin grew up just down the hill in the hollow south of the old town house on the Stephen Pitkin farm. In fact nearly all of Edwin's and Olive's immediate neighbors were close relatives; the Pitkins in the valley to the east, and the Dwinells on the hill to the north. Edwin was a surveyor, a skill he may have learned from his uncle Caleb Pitkin, also a surveyor. Mrs. Stephen Pitkin, Jr. wrote that Edwin was "an enterprising citizen (who) raised a large and intelligent family, was considerably in town business, and was for many years the principle surveyor in the vicinity." For a time around 1820, Edwin was the constable for the town of Marshfield, and in that capacity warned at least one town meeting. Of Edwin and Olive's seven children who survived to adulthood, only one (Josiah) left the area. Orsamus, Daniel, and Jerusha lived in Calais, Eli lived in Marshfield Village, Levi took over the farm, and Dorcas and her husband Steven Wooster purchased the neighboring farm, previously owned by Orsamus (now owned by Belmont Pitkin and known as the O.C.M. Pitkin farm). A journal kept by Edwin's nephew, Clark Bent, reveals that as late as 1870, the Bent family and the Dwinell family (Clark's mother, Sally Dwinell, was Olive's sister) did much of their business in East Calais, then called Moscow. It is likely that Edwin and Olive, too, had many social and business connections in Calais. The toilet facilities on the Edwin Pitkin farm were located in the horse barn, which was very nearby the ell of the house. The seat had five holes, three of which were of a normal size, and two smaller ones for the twin boys, Levi and Eli. Edwin was a founder and served as president for many years of the Universalist Society of Liberal Christianity of Marshfield.


The 1850 census of Marshfield lists Edwin, 52, a farmer with $5400 in real estate, living with his wife, Olive, 48, and children Orsamus, 24, Levi, 22, Daniel, 17, Jerusha, 13, Elsa, 9, and a boarder, John Hall, 17. All the children are listed as labourers.

The 1860 census lists Edwin, farmer, 61, with $6000 in real estate, $1200 personal, living with Olive, 58, Daniel, farmer, 26, Sarah A. Pitkin, 21, and Seth Terril, farm laborer, 19.

bullet Edwin Watson PITKIN Photo was born on 5 Oct 1860 in Marshfield, Vermont. He died about 24 Aug 1931 in Montreal, Canada. Edwin operated the Marshfield Village grist mill and later lived on his father's farm. His last residence was in North Montpelier Village where he worked in a woolen mill. He was a large, powerful man, and at times would carry on his shoulders to his village patrons 200 lb. sacks of meal. He could lift a barrel of flour (196 lbs) by the chimes on one end of it. Once on a bet, he carried 700 lbs of grain up Grist Mill Hill to the store across the main street in Marshfield. Ed represented Marshfield in the State Legislature in 1916. He and his wife were members of the Universalist Society of Liberal Christianity of Marshfield.
"Funeral services for Edwin W. Pitkin, highly respected resident of North Montpelier, who passed away last week in Montreal, following an operation were held from his home at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Rev. Arthur W. Hewitt of Plainfield officiated. There was a very large attendance of relatives, friends and neighbors, including many from out of town. The bearers were Fred S. Little, Walter H. Little, Clarence Templeton, George Pray, Ozias Pitkin and E. A. Merritt. The floral tribute was a very large and beautiful one. Following the funeral at the home the body was taken to the Eaton cemetery in Marshfield for burial. Edwin Watson Pitkin was born in East Calais on Oct. 5, 1860, the son of Levi W. and Mary (Burnap) Pitkin. He passed the early part of his life there. As a young man he attended Goddard seminary in Barre and later took up the occupation of a teacher in the Marshfield schools. The greater portion of his life Mr. Pitkin passed as a farmer in the town of Marshfield. He was representative from that town to the Vermont state legislature in 1915. Two years later, in 1917, he moved to North Montpelier, where he has since made his home. He was married on March 13, 1883, to Bertha M. Merritt of Marshfield, who survives him, together with their daughter, Mrs. Ruth Dwinell, and one granddaughter, Lois Dwinell, all of North Montpelier. Mr. Pitkin was a man of keen intelligence and great friendliness and he was very highly respected by everyone who knew him. His death was a blow, not only to his family, but to the entire community.

bullet Eli Swetland PITKIN Photo was born on 27 Sep 1828 in Marshfield, Vermont. He died on 1 Apr 1894 in Marshfield, Vermont. (18) Eli died of heart disease. He was buried in Eaton Cemetery, Marshfield, Vermont. Eli Pitkin had blue eyes, brown hair, and stood 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was somewhat careless of his personal appearance, and enjoyed brook fishing. He was an intelligent man who enjoyed a spirited conversation. He was quick tempered and plain spoken. Even now (1993) there are those in Marshfield who have heard of the legendary town meeting day arguments between Eli and his twin brother Levi. They travelled very different paths as adults. Eli served as a Corporal and Sergeant in Company C, 13th regiment of Vermont Volunteers from October, 1862 until July, 1863, leaving his pregnant wife and two children to fight in the Civil war (including the battle of Gettysburg). Levi remained in Marshfield and carried on with the farm after the death of their father in 1862. Both were republicans until the scandals and corruption of the administration of Ulysses Grant soured Eli to the republican party and he became a democrat. He was an ardent supporter of the Universalist church, and on one occasion is said to have forcibly expelled from the church some inattentive youths who were disrupting the services. For a time he served on the board of trustees of Goddard Seminary, a two year Universalist preparatory school. For a number of years before the war he was the owner of the village sawmill, which had been built by his grandfather, Stephen Pitkin in 1812. During those years he built the mill house now occupied by Hap Hayward. Later he built a house on the Cabot road now owned by his great-great-granddaughter, Gemma Yamamoto. Sometime after he returned from the war he built a house next to the village cemetery in which he lived the remainder of his life (that house was burned about 1984). For much of his life he worked as a lumberman, but he was also a surveyor, as was his father before him. In 1889, while still living in the village, he was the owner of a small farm consisting of 30 acres of pasture, 30 acres of woodlot, and 25 acres orchard and tillage land. This may have been the farm of Lydia's parents, Daniel and Mary Bemis, where Eli's son Ozias had lived for the previous 3 years. In the best of times, Eli and Lydia Pitkin had equity of some $10,000, but when Eli died in 1894, the real estate was valued at only $1250. Lydia then rented all but the two front rooms of her house to Ozias and his family, and sold her land to them. This arrangement continued until 1902, when Ozias moved to the Levi Benton farm. Eli and Lydia appear to have named their children after Eli's second cousin, Ozias Cornwall Pitkin (Alfred, Joshua, Joshua, Caleb, Roger, William, William, William), and his children, Elizabeth M., Carrie E., and Mary S. This O.C. Pitkin graduated from Dartmouth in 1847, was an educator in Vermont and Massachusetts, and later a manufacturing chemist.

In 1871-72, Eli was an officer of the Montpelier & Wells River Railroad.

"SERGEANT ELI S. PITKIN
was a native of the town of Marshfield and volunteered and counted on the quota of his town in August, 1862, and joined the East Montpelier company commanded by Lewis L. Coburn. He was on the organization of Company C appointed first corporal and subsequently January 12, 1863, promoted to Sergeant, in which capacity he served until the company regiment were mustered out July 21, 1863. His age at enlistment was 34, a vigorous, ablebodied man, well calculated in every respect for a soldier in time of war. Was on hand and ready at all times to perform his duty to the utmost, active, zealous and faithful in camp, on the march, picket line, and in battle. He took rank as among the resolute non-commissioned officers of the regiment. His manly appearance attracted attention and he was looked upon as a model officer and soldier. After being discharged he resumed his occupation and continued an upright, valuable citizen of Vermont until April 1st, 1894. He died in Marshfield and was there buried, and is remembered by his old comrades as a brave soldier and a respected citizen. He was a typical Green Mountain boy and made good the record of Vermont soldiers on the field of battle at Gettysburg. His death was untimely and his comrades sincerely regret that he could not have longer enjoyed the glorious land he so ardently fought to save from hostile foes of liberty and union. To only a few mortals is given the privilege of successfully standing in the breach where the weal or woe of national existence depends on devotion and genuine patriotism. In the crisis at Gettysburg Sergeant Pitkin and his comrades of the Second Vermont Brigade met and vanquished General Pickett, making a desperate charge with ten thousand of the flower of General Lee's mighty army, and won the day and battle and turned the tide for the cause of the union. Too much cannot be said in praise of such. The generations of the future will more fully realize and appreciate all that was accomplished in saving this land from destruction in the war of 1861-65.

Taken from the Annual Report of the Secretary of the Vermont Board of Education, 1862:
"While there is a large portion of the people of this town, perhaps a majority, who are opposed to the present school system, still there is a working few whose determination and efforts to raise the standard of our public schools, are very commendable; and we may say, a good work is being done. A few districts seem determined to come up to the point and turn out scholars in due time. This we anticipate will have its desired effect upon other districts, so that a general awakening upon the subject of education may seem to be in prospect. It is noticeable that the more successful teachers are those who have attended the Teachers' Institutes. It may be said of all good teachers that they have learned ti teach. We need bet!' ' teachers. The true methods of teaching the various branches to be learned in schools, should be known, that there may be more uniformity in teaching them. The Institutes, such as have been held in Vermont, are valuable to this end. As to changing teachers every term of school, our districts are now of one mind, that the first good teacher they get, they mean to keep, even though it costs much money.

ELI S. PITKIN, Marshfield."

In the 1870 census Eli's occupation was lumber dealer. On his death record his occupation is given as farmer.

For many years, Elisha was prominent as a trial justice, and his judgements were firm and usually unquestioned. But he was not above a bit of humor now and then.

bullet Elizabeth D. PITKIN was born on 3 Jun 1830. She died on 21 Apr 1854. From a letter written by Ellen Strong of Montpelier to Mary Jane (Jenny) Thrasher in Coventry, July 7, 1850: ". . . Thursday evening brother Henry - cousin Sarah [Cowles of Coventry] and Lizzie Pitkin went out to ride - and had just turned their faces homeward when the axletree of the wagon broke - and pitched them out - but as the horse was perfectly steady they succeeded in getting themselves righted without any difficulty, by procuring another wagon. When they were within a mile and a half of home - it being rather dark, the horse stumbled in going down a very steep hill - and again they were all thrown out. Henry sprained his hand very badly - and his side - but was able to get to a house and call some help. Sarah struck her head and shoulder - and for fifteen or twenty minutes was perfectly insensible. - Lizzie hurt one knee so badly - she could not step on it at all - but seemed not hurt much ohterwise - She lifted Sarah out of the road and bathed her head in camphor until she revived, butg then she immediately complained of sleepiness and they with difficulty kept her awake until she came home - Lizzie not thinking herself much hurt proposed staying to help tgake cadre of Sarah through the night, if she shouild not seem better. We called Dr. Loomis as soon as possible - and he seemed to fear some trouble about her brain - and also a dislocation of the shoulder - but after the swelling went down some what he found it was only sprained slightly and bruised considerably. Lizzie, smart as she thought herself - began to grow faint in a little while - and Henry ditto - Lizzie fainted several times during the night - but was able to get home Wednesday morning - since which time she has been quite sick - is strongly threatened with a fever - She is harmed all over - but no bones broken - Sarah was quite sick Wednesday - but has since been much better is today able to be all about the house - She rode up to see Lizzie this morning - and is really the least hurt of the three - though at frist it seemed otherwise. Shke is a dear patient girl - and I shall very much hate to lose her - Henry is able to be up - but is very lame and stiff - We hope they will all get along without further trouble. . . . Henry sends much love to yoiu - says the only reason they were not killed was because their time hadn't come. . . . " Parents: Deacon Alfred PITKIN and Orpah Washburn.
