It will be sold on reasonable terms and credit given on good security or the subscriber  would hire a good
journeyman who could be well recommended. JACOB RICH - Warwick 3 Dec. 1793“ 

He placed the following advertisement to hire a clothier in the Massachusetts Spy of  19 Sept. 1800: “WANTED IMMEDIATELY - A JOURNEYMAN CLOTHIER who is a good workman and capable of managing  the business with prudence and  dispatch -- to  whom a generous wage will be given, or the Mill, Press and Apparatus complete and in good order. together with a House and Barn and a few acres of  valuable land will be let or sold - the above premises are situated on a large road and an excellent stand for business.

On 4 July 1776 at a Warwick Town Meeting the townsmen voted whether or not to declare  independence from Great Britain.  Jacob cast a yes vote.(152)   

At a meeting of the free holders and inhabitants of Warwick on 31 Mar. 1777, JACOB RICH  and BENJAMIN MAYO were chosen constables. (153)  

Jacob Sr. was an incorporater of the Warwick & Irving Gore Turnpike
Corporation, a stagecoach route which was established in 1804. He was one of the founders of  the Franklin Glass Company organized in 1812 which proved to be an unsuccessful venture and failed in 1815.(154) There are some pieces and fragments of glass made by this company on display at Memorial Hall Museum in Deerfield, Massachusetts.  There is also a kitchen settle on exhibit at Deerfield which belonged to Jacob.  The donor's card on this bench reads,”Owned by Jacob Rich who settled in Warlock about 1777 - the great grandfather donor Jasper L. GALE, Warwick, Massachusetts".

An item published in a local newspaper in 1876 stated, "We have just
rescued from the rubbish the old centennial sign of the old tavern on the brook towards Winchester, with its punch-bowl and junk bottle.  That was the house where the teamsters and those pork-raisers from Vermont and New Hampshire, who went to Boston to exchange it for rum and molasses took their flip in the brave days of old.  "Jacob Rich" was on that sign (155)
In Volume I Minutes of Warwick, MA. Jacob Rich is called Innkeeper in
the Year 1784 and in 1805 he was granted an innholder’s license.  Jacob's
tavern was located on the Brook Road in Warwick  near the Winchester, NH town
line.  Supposedly, it was a two story house with a flat roof and shed attached that burned to the ground about 1895.

The following letter written on 26 Mar. 1882 to George D. RICH of Meadow
Grove, NEB from Harriet A. Leland was printed in Julia Rich Hogan’s Nicholas

He married MARY KENDALL of Athol, Mass.  Children were all born in Warwick, 8 sons and four daughters, but have not found the dates of their births. They belonged to the good old Puritanical stock......"  ".....I can just remember that your grandfather RICH died, he with his wife started to go to visit their son Jacob and they had gone a mile or two and he died in his carriage.  I had forgotten to tell you his name was Jacob.  He owned a farm and once kept a 
hotel which was a custom with farmers of olden times, he owned a grist mill, and I have heard it said of him when a poor man bought a grist he would say to his boys,”don’t take any toll of him.”He was called an honest upright man.....".

JACOB RICH Sr. died intestate. His wife Mary and his son Elisha Rich were
appointed administrators of the estate on 2 Apr. 1817, document witnessed by
Ruben & Ebenezer Rich.  His estate consisted of land and personal estate
amounting to $16,451.53 and was inventoried on 31 May 1817 by Caleb Mayo,
Andrew Kendall  & Ashbel Ward.  Among Jacob's assets were 372 acres of land, the farm where Jacob Rich Jr. now lives and Pew #23 in the Meeting House.(161)

Jacob's death notice reads, "At Warwick on the 5th, Mr. JACOB RICH, age
71.  He was proceeding in company with his wife to visit a son, about 3 miles
distance and died without having any intimation of illness on his way."(Franklin Herald Tuesday 18 Mar. 1817, Vol. XXVI #319) 

In the Year 1855 Mrs. A. K. Miles, a descendant of the Kendall Family wrote
a genealogy in rhyme about the Kendall  Clan.  This is what she wrote about t0he family of JACOB & MARY RICH of Warwick, MA.

"Mary married one Jacob whose surname was Rich
       A tanner or farmer I cannot tell which.
      Their children increased to the number of eleven
       And plenty of bread to sustain them was given."

"The children of Mary and Jacob I'll write
       Lucinda, Charles, Mary, names hard to incite.
      Jacob, Olive, Reuben, Daniel and David appear
       Elisha, Eliza, Ebenezer are here."

On August 16-17 1975 the residents of Warwick, MA in celebration of our
nation's Bicentennial presented a drama called The Revolution Comes to Rev.
Lentil Hedge by Charles Morse & George Foot.  The production was held in Grace Field and the present townspeople, in colonial attire, played the parts of those long ago Warwick townspeople in the time period 1765 to 1777.  It was very impressive to see the actors come over the hill and down into the natural bowl where the field is located.  In my imagination, I could see 
the ghosts of JACOB RICH and his family in attendance - perhaps they were!!!

The inventory of Jacob Jr’s estate was taken 19 May 1826 by Ashbel Ward &
Amory GALE. The estate was valued at $596.27 in real & personal property.  The inventory of the estate of Jacob Jr’s father Jacob Sr. lists one of Jacob Jr’s assets as the "farm on which Jacob Rich Jr. now lives" and this is probably the same farm that the estate of Jacob Jr. valued at $392.67.Also listed in the inventory are a dozen blue edged plates.  I own two old white plates with blue edges given to me by a relative in Orange, Mass.  I was told these plates 
were very old but they have no markings.  I suspect that these might be part of the dozen plates mentioned in Jacob jar’s inventory.  The workmanship is very crude.

Hannah RICH was the administratrix of her husband's estate and on 19
June 1827 she posted a bond for the guardianship of her children.  Mary, Jacob & Charles Rich signed a document giving their mother full power to act for them on 14 June 1827.  This document was witnessed by Caroline Rich.(262)

Jacob Jr’s obit  This obit calls him  Lt. so he was probably a member of  the local militia. It is not known where Jacob Jr. is buried but in all probability he is interred in the Rich Family Cemetery in Warwick in an unmarked  grave.

in 1835 This industry produced mostly window glass. Dr.Hall became interested  in making glass because medicine bottles of his day were  green and he felt they should be clear. He had some knowledge of chemistry and developed his own recipe for glass.  When the factory opened the doctors’ son Ebenezer Write Hall  Jr. and son-in-law Isaac Grovier were put in charge. The glass works stayed in business for eight years until the sands of the Clinton River proved 
poor quality the business was abandoned.276 Ebenezer was a founder of the Masonic Lodge in 1840 and served as grand master pro tem.277 Hall is mentioned among the vice-presidents of "The Clinton and Kalamazoo Canal Celebration in 1838 in Mt. Clemens. (278)

After the death of his first wife Lucy Adams Rich, Charles sent his two sons Charles Adams & Jacob David Rich to live with Elijah & Elizabeth Miller where they were living in 1850 & 1860 according to census of these years. 

Charles Rich of Winchester, NH was issued a patent for improvement in sash-holders dated 17 Sep. 1872. (401a).    

CHARLES married (1) LUCY ADAMS, daughter of AMOS ADAMS and MARY FASSETT,
on 18 Oct 1836 in Winchester, NH.(402) Lucy was born on 21 Oct 1817 in Winchester, Cheshire Co.,NH. (403) She died on 27 Jan 1842 in Winchester, Cheshire Co., NH. (404)

Before the turn of the century it was customary for many young women to
embroider samplers.  Many of these samplers were in the form of family records. Miss Lucy ADAMS of Winchester, Cheshire County, MA wrought her family sampler the Year 1835. Lucy’s handiwork was in the possession of my paternal Aunt Mrs. Lena BATTERSBY of Orange, MA for many years. She gave this sampler to me in 1974 and this is what led me on the hunt for my ancestry.

Lucy’s needlepoint is in its original walnut wooden frame but is in poor
condition.  Most of the original stitching around the border of the work is
still intact though faded.  The diamond shaped designs are done in the colors
yellow, white, blue and orange.  Much of the letters and dates in the family
record were worn and had to be placed over a lighted lamp shade to be read.  I inked in the letters and numbers that were legible before there outlines became completely unreadable.   Someone else, other than Lucy, embroidered the dates of events that occurred after Lucy’s demise. This may have been done by one of her sisters. 

Lucy ADAMS of Winchester, NH never dreamed in the Year 1835 that more
than  150 years later her family sampler would be hanging in the home of her
great-great granddaughter in Troy, New York.

Obituary -  "Charles A. RICH died last Sunday morning at his home on Aschuelot Street.  He had been ill for eight days with uremia. He was 73 years of age.

Mr. RICH was born in this town, a son of CHARLES & LUCY (Adams) RICH and
practically all of his life he made his home in this town.  In his early life
he was a peddler of small wares, termed Yankee notions which in those days was
quite an industry.  He also ran a saw mill more or less. In recent years he had conducted a hardware store on Elm Street.  He was a member of no fraternal
order or church but was a great student of the Bible and a regular attendant at church and Sunday School.

Mr. RICH was three times married, first to Laura Davis of this town, by whom
he had three children, B.C. Rich of Whitman, Mass. Frank A. Rich of
Phillipston, Mass. and Mrs. Nelson Castor of East Sullivan.  His second wife
was Lucy Lyon of Winchester and his third wife who survives him was Mrs. Martha Haskell, also of this town.  He leaves, besides those mentioned, a brother J.D. Rich of Chicopee Falls, Mass., a half-sister Mrs. Helena Eaton of Winchester, a step-daughter Mrs. John Sutphen  of So. Dakota, 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

The funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon at three o'clock at the
Congregational Church.  Rev. C.E . Gould of the Methodist Church officiating.
The burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery. (448)

COMBS, on 28 Mar 1861 in Winchester, NH.(449) Charles divorced Laura in Keene NH on 22 Oct. 1882 on charges of abandonment and refusal to cohabit.(450) Laura was born on 5 Sep 1843 in Syracuse, Onondaga Co., NY. (451) She died on 16 Jul 1903 in E.Sullivan, Cheshire Co.,NH (452)

Laura Ann DAVIS/RICH m2 ERASMUS CUTLER. They lived in Cabot, VT where Erasmus 
died 18 Sept. 1899, aged 89 years.(453) Laura m3 Wesley F. MILES  in Cabot, VT on 7 Feb.1902.(454) Wesley predeceased Laura 

Laura A. (DAVIS) RICH was the original owner of the Rich Family Bible
which is now in possession of compiler. A tax notice was found in this Bible
dated Oct. 1881 for property located in Keene apparently owned by Laura. This
notice advised Laura that her taxes were delinquent in the amount of $6.65
which included $6.50 State, County, City & Highway Taxes and .15 cents School
Tax.  Laura was listed in the 1883-1884 Keene City Directory as RICH, Laura A.,widow, residence Court St. Corner North. This was the only Keene CD she was listed in. She probably called herself widow as divorced women were not
considered respectable in 1880.

It is said that Laura enjoyed painting china vases and dishes which is
probably so as this was a common hobby for women in this era.  The compiler owns a couple of pieces of hand painted china which may be Laura's work.

Laura's obit reads as follows: "Mrs. Laura A. MILES, widow of the late
Wesley T. MILES of Cabot, VT died from the result of a fall at the house of her daughter Mrs. NELSON CASTOR, East Sullivan, Sunday, aged 60 years.  She leaves three children Frank A. Rich of Phillipston, Mass., Bert C. Rich of East Whitman, Mass. and Mrs. Nelson Castaw (should be CASTOR) of East Sullivan, all by her first husband.  The funeral services will be held at the home of Mrs. Castaw Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.  Friends are invited.(455)

Elyria, Lorain Co. Ohio Democrat, 26 Nov.1914

Albina K. Rich passed peacefully away at her home just south of Elyria early last Saturday morning  following an illness of two weeks.    

She had reached the ripe old age of 87 years Mrs.Rich died on the farm to which she came with her husband and children a half century ago. It was only of very recent years that fire destroyed the old homestead in which so many of the  happy years of her life had been spent . It was always her wish to end her days on the old home place with fond associations and family ties. Coming to Elyria to make her home when the place was but  a little village clustering about the court house square a mile away. She lived to see the flourishing city  grow to her very door.  Mrs. Rich was dearly loved by a large number of friends for her  Christian character. She had the rare gift of drawing to her not only  those of her own generation but those younger and to the latter, she was fondly known as “Grandma Rich” Her birthday anniversaries from year to year were made by her friends and family very happy events in her life, the more so as advancing age restricted her usual activities.

The funeral services were held from her late home,  Monday afternoon at  2  o’clock Rev.J.H.Grant of the First Congregational church officiating. In connection with the beautiful tribute to the character of the deceased and the worth of her life in the community, Rev. Grant  read the following historical sketch prepared by members of the family “Albina Somerset Kittredge was born in Charleston, Maine April 16th 1827.  The family soon removed to Milo, Maine. She attended the academy in Charleston and later studied with her uncle
Calvin Bickford, in Warren Maine. 

At the age of fifteen  she joined the Baptist church in Milo. This being the only church in town people of all denominations joined  in its worship and worked harmoniously  in the common cause. The little church was financially weak and could not support a settled pastor, but visiting
ministers of whatever denomination,occupied its pulpit, and when no minister was present Mr. Charles Rich  often read a sermon. Both Charles Rich and Albina Kittredge sang in the choir. The ministers were generally entertained  in the home of Mr Kittredge who kept the general store in the village.

Albina Kittredge’s religion was a very vital part of her life and when she taught in Killmonic, Maine, she opened school with prayer every morning.

At the age of twenty she married Charles Wilder Rich who was nineteen years older than herself. In referring to her marriage she was accustomed to say later in life that she was sure she was guided to this decision in answer to prayer. He had been for seventeen years  the head of the household of his widowed mother, and in the place of a father to the six younger brothers and
sisters.  Before his marriage his brothers and sisters  had all left for school or business or homes of their own, but the “Intervale  Farm”, with the little old unpainted  house.with its wide open fireplace was always home to them all.

Six children were born to Mr.& Mrs. Rich in Milo, one of whom died in infancy.Mary Rich Andrews died in Elyria in 1880 leaving one child, Susie Andrews Manuel, now living in Cleveland.  Anna Rich Leadingham died in Pomona Cal  in January 1913  leaving six children.

Mr. & Mrs. Rich moved to Elyria in December 1864, where his sister Mrs.Anna DeWitt, and his brother Isaac S. Metcalf, had previously settled , and to which a year earlier the youngest brother Eliab W. Metcalf, came with his family. Here they joined the First Congregational church, of which up to the time of her death Nov. 24, 1914, she was a faithful and devoted member. She was also a member of the Sunday school, either as scholar or teacher, until the infirmities of  age prevented her attendance.She taught for some years, a class of boys, in each of whom, she always retained an affectionate interest, and some of whom in mature manhood, gave frequent expression to their regard for her  and their gratitude for her influence in their lives.

She kept up through all the years regular and systematic Bible study and lived her long life of nearly eighty-eight years in constant dependence upon  God and assurance of his love and care.

In 1888 her husband  was taken from her by death. Since that time she continued to live  in her own home on the farm  just south of Elyria,where she had the devoted care of her son and daughter, Mr. & Mrs. Geo. W. Rich and their daughter.

She is survived by a sister, Mrs.Mary Lawton of Folsom,CA.,two brothers John H. Kittredge, of Kansas City, KA., and Calvin B. Kittredge of Needham,Mass, and three sons, Chas. M. Rich of Grand Rapids, Mich., Jos. S. Rich of Duluth, Minn. and Geo.W.Rich of Elyria, besides nine grandchildren, three great grandchildren, many nephews and nieces and a host of friends who can
never lose  the influence of her unselfish and devout personality.

The services were largely attended. The three surviving sons of the deceased Charles Rich, Joseph Rich and George W. Rich, were all able to be present. The music of the service was sung by the younger kin-folk of the deceased.  Rev. and Mrs. Harlan Metcalf and  Mr  John Manuel of Cleveland and  Dr.H. Metcalf of  Elyria.  At the grave the service was conducted by Rev.Irving W. Metcalf of Oberline, a nephew of the deceased.

A wealth of beautiful flowers filled the room where the casket was placed the well-known  love of the deceased for them being remembered at this hour.       .  
Elyria Republican 28 Jan. 1897 - DEATH OF ANNA ELIZABETH DEWITT -

Mrs. Anna Elizabeth Ricb died Saturday January 23d in her 86th year. Mrs. Dewitt was born in Warwick, Mass. August 27, 1811.  Her father died when she was but a few months old  and about ten years later,  her mother was married to Isaac Metcalf, Royalston, Mass. who moved to Boston in 1826 and conducted a private school.  She was for some years an assistant teacher in her father’s school, and after his death in 1843, she and her oldest sister , Mrs. Ryder, established a private school  of their own.  Later she transferred her school  to Bangor, Maine, where she was a popular and successful teacher for some twelve years In 1848 she became an assistant principal  of Westfield Academy, Westfield, N.Y. and three  years later took charge of a young ladies
seminary in Racine, Wisconsin where her home was in the family of Rev. T. N. Hopkins, pastor of  the Presbyterian church. In 1852 Mr. Hopkins accepted a call to what was then the Presbyterian church of Elyria, now the Congregational church, and the following summer vacation Miss Rich who came to Elyria to visit the family of Rev. Mr. Hopkins became acquainted with
Dr. Elijah DeWitt, to who she was married September 28, 1853.  From that time until her death her home was in Elyria. Mrs. DeWitt was a woman of  the finest  qualities of mind and heart and she retained her keenness  of  intellect and the full possession of her faculties to the day of  her
death  In her earlier years she was a writer of ability and wrote a novel depicting  New England home-life which had a large circulation at  the time and has been for many years in print. She was an extensive reader and with her husband always kept thoroughly informed  as to what was going on in all parts of the world, watching with special interest the progress of missionary work
throughout  the world. She had a highly cultivated literary taste and never lost her interest in the best of literature.  Mrs. DeWitt was one of the oldest members of the First Congregational Church of Elyria. In connection with Mrs. Abigail Monteith, she was one of the founders of the Woman’s Foreign Missionary Society of her church, She was its president for many years, and at
the time of her death was president emeritus and was all her life a zealous and faithful  worker in the church and Sunday school.  While she was a teacher in Boston she had charge of two Sunday Schools, one of them a mission school.  For many years after coming to Elyria she taught large classes of young men in the Sunday school, and members of these classes, now widely scattered ,
have often come to call upon her when they have returned  to Elyria in these later years.

Miss Elizabeth DeWitt and Mrs. Hattie DeWitt Gaylord of Columbus, Ohio are the survivingmembers of Dr. DeWitt’s family, the late Charles W. Rich of Elyria was Mrs DeWitt’s oldest brother and of the other brothers and sisters survivors are Mrs. Ryder who now lives in Brownville, Maine in her 88th year and Mr. I.S. Metcalf and Mr. E.W. Metcalf of Elyria,Ohio.

The funeral was held at the family residence on Broad street which had been her home during her entire married life, on Tuesday  afternoon January 26th  The services were conducted by her nephew Irving W. Metcalf , of Pilgrim church,Cleveland and her grandson Rev. William C. DeWitt of St. Andrew’s Protestant Episcopal church, Chicago.
