He read and re-read his favorite authors, - loved to recite the 14th Chap. of St. John in Greek and was full of latin quotations. He never jumped at a diagnosis, but was always willing to say 'I don't know.' He believed that woman's sphere was her own atmosphere. He was deeply religious, broad and progressive. He believed that truth never changes but that the way to truth is changing all the time." Residence Hanover, N.H., Los Angeles, Cal. Physician.

Noah Worcester to Brighton in 1813; grad, Harvard College, 1818; studied theology, Divinity School, Cambridge, Mass., six months; settled May, 1821, as Pastor of the New Jerusalem Church, Boston, Mass. Editor of the New Jerusalem Magazine 1855-1860; President of General Convention of the New Church in America from 1839-1875; Presiding minister of Mass. Assn. of the New Church from 1838-1874. Overseer, Harvard College from 1854-1860; D.D. Harvard, 1856; Pres. N. Ch. Theological School, 1866-1878; Pastor of Boston Soc. of the New Church 1821-1867. After resigning his pastorate of the Boston Society in 1867, he removed to Waltham, where the sessions of the Theological School were afterward held.   Dr. Worcester was a marked character in his day and generation. There was need of all the decision and firmness for which his life was so remarkable in the early days of the establishment of the New Jerusalem Church in New England, and its growth and character depended very much upon the characteristic qualities of the mind of him who was its acknowledged head and leader. His stately, venerable form, his gracious dignified presence, his clear, forcible presentation of Divine Truth will never enjoyed his ministrations. Residence, Boston and Waltham.

Joseph Emerson Worcester

        In 1794 he removed with his father to Hollis, N.H. With the exception of about eight months, during which he studied at Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass., Boscawen, N.H., with Dr. Wood, and at the Academy Salisbury, N.H, and two years employed in teaching school, Salem, Mass., he resided in Hollis until March, 1809, when he entered the Sophomore Class of Yale College; grad. 1811; engaged in teaching in Salem, several years; passed two years in Andover, Mass. After 1820 resided for the most part in Cambridge, Mass, devoting himself to literary pursuits, and the preparation of numerous and valuable publications, LL.D. Brown University, 1847; was a Fellow of the American Academy; Historical Society and Corresponding member of the Royal Geographical Society of London.
        In 1828 he published the first of his long series of dictionaries, an edition of Johnson’s English Dictionary, … with Walker’s Pronouncing Dictionary, Combined. The following year he prepared an abridgement of Webster’s large dictionary of 1828, and in 1830 his own Comprehensive Pronouncing and Explanatory Dictionary of the English Language. His 1830 dictionary evoked from Noah Webster a rather ill-natured charge of plagiarism. This attack was the first move in a half century battle for supremacy between the two great rival series of dictionaries, a battle which degenerated later into the graceless and petty commercial strife, between the rival publishers known as the "War of the Dictionaries." Worcester, a more conservative, held more closely to British usage, especially that of Johnson and Walker, while Webster, in the words of H.E. Scudder, "walked about the Jericho of English lexicography, blowing his trumpet of destruction." The supremacy of Webster was not established until 1864, when Webter’s … Unabridged. The work of many competent hands, appeared.
      His most important publications are, A Universal Gazetteer; Sketches of the Earth and its Inhabitants; Elements of History: Remarks on Longevity; Johnson's English Dictionary as improved by Todd, etc.; A Comprehensive Pronouncing, and Explanatory Dictionary of the English Language; and A Pronouncing, Explanatory, and Synonymous Dictionary of the English Language. He also superintended and abridgment of Webster's Quarto Dictionary, and was, for several years, the literary editor of the American Almanac. His latest work was
Worcester's Quarto Dictionary Unabridged and Fully Illustrated.

Daniel Nash, Lowville, N.Y., b Oct. 12, 1801; d Apr. 20, 1859. In 1799 he removed with his father to Peacham, Vt., grad. Univ. of Vermont, 1819; Andover Theological Seminary, 1823; was ordained Aug. 29, 1825, as a missionary under direction of the American Board.  Soon after his ordination he was sent as a missionary to the Cherokee Indian Nation in Brainard, Tenn. In 1825 he removed to New Echota (Calhoun, Georgia), the new national capital of the Cherokee Nation. There he helped establish the first printing press and Native American newspaper, The Cherokee Phoenix, edited by the yound Indian classical scholar, Elias Boudinot. It was Rev. Worcester he who vitalized Sequoyah's Cherokee syllabary by means of the printing press in the original home of the Cherokees in the south and later in Indian Territory West of the Mississippi.
        Rev. Worcester "cheerfully went to prison for the privilege of doing so" by Georgia state authorities. He sentenced to four years of hard labor for refusing to swear allegiance to the state while residing within the Cherokee Nation. His criminal conviction was successfully appealed to the United States Supreme Court. In that case, Worcester v Georgia, 31 U.S. (6 Peters) 515 (1832), Chief Justice Marshall, established the principal that Indian tribes are domestic dependent nations. As such, the jurisdiction of a state's authority cannot extend to Indian lands. The opinion so infuriated President Jackson that he reportedly stated, "Justice Marshall has issued his opinion, now let him enforce it." The decision and the subsequent refusal by the state of Georgia to release him from prison emboldened the state of South Carolina which promulgated an ordinance nullifying the United States revenue law within its borders. Eventually the Governor of Georgia was enjoined to grant clemency to the imprisoned missionary to avoid a major constitutional crisis.
        Soon after his release from prison, Rev. Worcester removed to Indian Territory located in present day Tahlequa, Oklahoma as part of the infamous removal of all Cherokees West of the Mississippi along the "Trail of Tears". He continued his life's work of translating and printing more than thirteen million "talking leaves" - newspapers, textbooks, almanacs, and tracts from the Bible in the Cherokee, Choctaw, and Creek languages. Before his death he could survey a literate nation of Native Americans, made so by his untiring efforts as a pioneer printer and publisher in a new land. In a cemetery at Park Hill, a marble shaft bears this inscription:

"Rev. S. A. Worcester, D. D.

"For 33 years a Missionary of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions among the Cherokees. To his work they owe their own Bible and Hymn Book."

        A Congregational Mission School at Vrinta, Indian Territory, intended to give the best educational advantages to Indian boys and girls, was named Worcester Academy in his honor. The State of Georgia maintains a state park just outside the city limits of Calhoun where, along with a museum of Cherokee artifacts, original and reconstructed buildings of the national capital of the Cherokee Nation, New Echota, can be viewed. Among these buildings is the original Worcester homestead.

VIII-231   Ann Eliza, b Brainerd, Tenn., Nov. 7, 1826, d Muskogee, Okla., Nov. 19, 1905, m Park Hill, Ind. Ter. 16, 1850, Rev. William Schenk Robertson, of Tullahassee Mission Creek Nation, b Jan. 11, 1820, d June 26, 1881. By nature and inheritance this daughter seemed fitted to work among the Indians. After completing her education in Vermont under the careful guidance of her uncle, John H. Worcester, giving special attention to the study of language, she returned to aid her father in his mission work among the Cherokees. Her marriage simply transferred her to a wider field of missionary effort in the Creek Nation, where for more than half a century she worked with tireless zeal, aiding her devoted husband as teacher and translator. Through their joint efforts a literature was given the Creeks, which comprises in addition to a large part of the Bible, hymn books, readers and such religious and doctrinal instruction as was deemed best adapted to the needs of the Indian people. She also aided in the linguistic work of the U.S. Bureau of Ethnology by her studies of Muskogean dialects and languages. In recognition of her unusual accomplishments the University of Wooster conferred upon her the honorary degree of Ph.D. - the first time a woman was so honored. The Bible translation was most of it done after the death of her husband, and much of the time she was a semi-invalid, practically confined to her couch. Though physically unable to teach in the class room she was made a professor emeritus of Henry Kendall College, and her helpful influence touched almost the entire student body. Loved and revered by the hundreds of the Creeks people who had been her pupils, her interest followed them, and in times of joy, sorrow, trial and temptation, her tireless pen indicated messages fitted to the especial need. One prominent Indian who since his boyhood had looked to her for advice and sympathy, said at her death: "The Creek people have lost their mother."

Raised funds to build two Indian schools and was especially active in the education of girls. Though not a professional stenographer she had so good a command of shorthand as to be often called from her mission duties to report important councils or meetings, and did the first court reporting in the State of Oklahoma.

A useful career seemed suddenly brought to an end by the sad accident which caused Prof. William's death. He was appointed assistant professor of Biology in Brown Univ. in 1903, admitted to the faculty of the Harvard Medical School in 1908, in the department of comparative anatomy. He published several treatises in connection with his  study of vertebrate development, spending several months in research work at the anatomical institute in Freiburg, Switzerland. "By his death the department of anatomy lost a member incessantly active in developing its collections and in research, whose skills and industry are shown by the well-filled cabinets in the laboratory corridor."
                        From a biographical sketch from the Anatomical Record (Feb., 1913), his friend and associate for many years, says in part: "He was a most careful and accurate investigator and his knowledge of comparative anatomy was very broad and thorough. Had he lived he would doubtless have stood among the very first of American comparative anatomists."  Dr. Williams was a member of the Am. Assn. of Anatomists; the Soc. of Zoologists; the Soc. of Naturalists; Fellow of the Am. Assn. for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the Council Boston Soc. Natural History.

Educated in the public schools of Vermont and Chester Academy. Immigrated to Illinois in 1836. Became a clerk in the dry goods store owned by Chester Swallow and later became a partner in the firm. Following the death of Mr. Swallow, he formed a co-partnership with Simeon Bros, who engaged in the sale of general merchandise for about 10 years. He then was engaged in the retail of drugs, groceries and hardware, and for five years following in the manufacture of agricultural implements. In 1983 he was elected justice of the peace, which he held for six years. He was commissioned as postmaster in 1845, which office he held for 12 years. He was elected county judge in Nov. 1983, continuing in that capacity for six years. He was elected and served as a member of the constitutional convention of the state, in 1847, and was appointed as one of the state trustees of the deaf and dumb asylum, in 1859, being re-appointed in 1863 and 1867, holding the office 12 years.  He was elected to the state senate in 1856. In 1860 he was again elected to that office, and was one of the five democrats in the senate who dared vote to ratify President Lincoln's proclamation of emancipation. He was elected county judge in 1863, and re-elected in 1867, with but one opposing vote, serving nine years. In 1852, he was appointed township school trustee. He was a member of the national democratic convention at St. Louis, in 1876, which nominated Samuel J. Tilden for the presidency. The History of Greene & Jersey Counties, Illinois - 1885, described Mr. Worcester as follows: "The judge has always been identified with the democratic party, is a member of no secret organization or church, being a free thinker. His religion consists of humanitarian principles, honor and integrity, fidelity to friends and good will to all."  See Biography.

He was a friend of the Booth family of actors. He was playing in Uncle Tom's Cabin in the South when he was captured by the rebels, but later escaped and made his way north to Washington, DC. He enlisted from New Haven, Conn. and served as a 2nd Lt. in Co. F of the 27th Rgt. of Conn. Vol. Inf. under the command of Captain Joseph Bradley. Discharged New Haven, Conn., Jul. 25, 1863. He may have had a son, Will, out of wedlock as this person came to this Daniel's house in Somerville, Mass., looking for his father. Will died at Somerville Hospital of a ruptured appendix soon after meeting with Daniel. Daniel spent his last days in old soldiers' home in Vermont. On his pension application he was asked if he had any children. His response was, "none living" which suggests that he accepted Will as his son. Residence Lowell, Mass, Warren, Vt., Roxbury, Vt. Listed painter as his occupation in his pension application.

The following appeared in the Bennington Banner on Dec. 16, 1915:

Daniel Worcester, the first actor to play the part of "Uncle Tom" in the dramatization of Harriet Beecher Stowe's famous novel, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" died shortly before 6 o'clock Friday afternoon at the Vermont soldiers' home here where he had been an inmate during the past five years. For many months he had been confined to his bed.
Worcester was an actor of the old school. To him "Uncle Tom's Cabin" as originally written, was a great drama and he had no patience with the modern productions in which the comedy element superseded the dramatic. For many years preceding his death he had refrained from witnessing the play with its double characters and vaudeville features. He was a man of magnificent physique, six feet in height and in middle life weighed over two hundred pounds.
"Uncle Tom", as he was known to everybody at the home and to many residents of this village, was a man of the kindliest disposition, always considerate of others and respected and loved by his fellow veterans and the officials of the home.
Worcester leaves one brother at St. Johnsbury, also a brother living just out of Boston and a sister, Mrs. George Huntington of Montpelier who has been a frequent visitor at the soldiers' home since Worcester became an inmate of the institution. The remains will be sent Saturday morning to Roxbury for burial.
Daniel Worcester was a Vermonter, having been born in a log cabin, in the town of Warren, August 24, 1833. His father was a farmer and the family consisted of ten boys and two girls. From his educational opportunities, which were limited to the winter terms of the district school, he could have obtained no possible insight into the life he ultimately followed. During the years of his boyhood there was not such a thing as a theater in the state and certainly no tidings of the footlights penetrated to that home in the wilderness, of which the site today is 20 miles distant from the nearest railway station. And yet some dormant spark of inspiration must have come into the world with the boy, for Worcester, in later years, recalled the fact that the rhetorical exercises held on the last day of each term of school, and which were the plague of his companions, had no terrors for him. As he expressed it, he remembered that he "was always happy when speaking a piece."
At the age of 17 he left home and went to Lowell, Mass., where he apprenticed himself to learn the trade of a painter. Soon after his arrival in the city he purchased his first theater ticket an admission the old Lowell museum. Sheridan Knowles in "The Hunchback" was the attraction. The boy was carried away with the play which made such a strong impression upon him that on the following morning he was able to repeat from memory a large portion of the dialogue and he then and there made up his mind to become as actor. With some difficulty he secured a membership in an amateur theatrical organization called the Aurora club and showed so much enthusiasm that he was soon elected president and stage manager.
His first professional engagement was at the Howard Athenaeum in Lowell where he played minor parts for a period of about six months. In the fall of 1851 he became associated with George Aitkin, who wrote the first dramatization of Harriet Beecher Stowe's great novel, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," and was given the leading part in the company which Aitkin organized for the purpose of trying out the production. William S. Hutchins, the famous lightning mathematical calculator who made such a reputation with Barnum's circus and who was for years the lecturer at the Austin Stone museum in Boston, was also a member of the company and impersonated "St. Claire." Hutchins, previous to his death in Boston in August 1911, other than Worcester was the only survivor of the company. Denman Thompson, who was a co-member with Worcester in the Aurora club, had agreed with Aitkin to take a part in the production but, while the rehearsals were in progress, obtained what he believed was a better engagement and was released from his contract.
The drama was produced for the first time in Natick, Mass. The two incidents of this opening night that remained in Worcester's memory during his declining years were the large audience and the presence on one of the front seats of Henry Wilson, at that time a member of the Massachusetts senate and just beginning to make himself felt as a factor in the abolitionist movement, who later represented his state in the upper house of congress, made a brilliant record in the civil war and was elected vice-president on the republican ticket with U.S. Grant in the campaign of 1872.
From Natick, the company made a tour of the cities and larger towns of Massachusetts, exclusive of Boston. The theaters, or museums as they were called at the time, were all controlled by the stock companies and it was necessary for the little troupe with its new production to make its appearance in halls, which were often connected with the hotels and used for dances, or in churches. One night the company played in a barn. At Springfield, where the company played in Hampden Hall, Harriet Beecher Stowe, then living in Hartford, was in the audience. From Springfield, the company went to Greenfield. It crossed the Hoosac mountains in coaches to North Adams and Williamstown.
The company did not enter Vermont for the reason that there was at the time a law on the statute books of the Green Mountain state prohibiting traveling theatrical companies. This law also applied to circuses.
Avoiding Vermont, Manager Aitkin took his company through the north-eastern counties if New York. He played the towns on Lake Champlain, giving the Vermonters living on the opposite shore an opportunity to see the drama. When the company appeared at Port Henry, Essex and Westport, fully half the seats were occupied by people from the Vermont towns who crossed the lake in boats or on ferries. In Westport there was an engagement of a week and a steamer was run each night from Vergennes to accommodate residents of that city. From the lake towns the company went north to Ogdensburg and then into the western section of New York.
During these early productions the drama was in a crude state and the author was continually changing the lines as he observed opportunities for improvement. The parts were in manuscript, having not as yet been printed. Aitkin was with the company less than six months. As soon as he had completed the revisions he thought necessary he went to Troy, NY, where he gathered a Company of recognized professional Actors and where on the evening of June 18, 1852, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was produced for the first time by a �.. organization. Writers of stage history generally have credited the opening night by Aitkin's company in Troy as the initial production of the drama, but the play had been on the road for fully half a year and had been witnessed by hundreds of people while being welded into shape for the large theaters. The old Troy museum, although the interior was later used for other purposes, remained in existence until January 26, 1911, when the building was completely destroyed by fire.
After his arrival at the soldiers home, Worcester was never able to recall the name of the young woman who took the part of Eva in Aitkin's first company. She was a novice and did not follow the stage for any length of time. In the stock company which Aitkin organized in Troy the part of Eva was taken by Cordelia Howard who made a reputation in the role. Mrs. Howard was Topsey and her father was St. Clair.
When Aitkin left his original company, Worcester became its manager and it was under his direction that the tour of western New York was made. The actors remained together for over a year but "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was the only production attempted. After the drama had proved itself with the theater-going public it was taken to New York City by the company organized in Troy and had a phenomenal run. "Uncle Tom Cabin companies were soon organized in all parts of the east and middle west and in a short time there were half a hundred of them on the road.
After his success with the original "Uncle Tom's cabin" company. Worcester had no difficulty in securing engagements with the leading stock companies. His name usually appeared on the books as "first old man." By several companies he was employed as stage manager and after his return from the war most of his engagements were in that capacity. During the presidential campaign of 1860 he was touring the middle west with a repertoire company. On one occasion the troupe was booked to appear at Springfield, Ill., following a political debate by Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas. At Worcester's suggestion a change was made in the program. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was given in place of the piece which had been advertised with Worcester in the title role and the two candidates in the audience.
During the years that he was connected with the theatrical business Worcester owned and managed a number of traveling companies. In the winter of 1861 he took a company into the southern states and became stranded in Mobile by the opening of the civil war. His company was composed of both northerners and southerners. The male members who sympathized with the south voluntarily entered the confederate service; the others were drafted. One of the actors who sided with the south disclosed the fact that Worcester had taken the part of "Uncle Tom" in the north and a number of the hot heads in camp were about ready to lynch the actor. The plot was revealed to Worcester by a newspaper man connected with the New Orleans Picayune and with whom Worcester had formed an acquaintance when the company was playing in Mississippi. Both were members of the Masonic order. Being warned of his danger, Worcester and two other members of the company made a break for liberty during the night. One of the three was shot and killed but Worcester and his companion through the assistance of negroes by whom they were concealed during the day finally reached the Ohio river and crossed into federal territory. The reporter who had been instrumental in saving Worcester's life immobile entered the confederate, was wounded and made a prisoner. He was taken to one of the federal hospitals near New York city where he was found by Worcester and again thanked for the timely warning.
Worcester enlisted in the 27th Connecticut regiment. When his term expired he returned to his native state somewhat broken in health by the hardships of the service. He remained at his old home in Warren until he had recovered his strength and then sought an engagement with Forester's New York troupe. In the fall of 1864 his company was at Montpelier during the session of the legislature and he remembered announcing President Lincoln's re-election from the stage. At that time he was playing the part of "Old Hurricane" in "The Hidden Mind." Later, he became stage manager for Amy Stone and when she secured an opportunity to make a tour in Australia he bought out the company and kept it on the road for several years with a repertoire of sensational dramas. He was stage manager for Laura Keene during the years preceding her retirement from the stage.
Worcester gave up the theatrical business in 1874 and took up residence in Bridgeport, Conn., where for 11 years he was a member of the police force. From Bridgeport he moved to Vermont and located at Montpelier where he purchased a small farm just outside the city limits. He sold this property and purchased another home at Roxbury in the same county where in February, 1909 his nervous system broke down, following the long and fatal illness of Mrs. Worcester, and he was admitted to the Vermont soldiers' home here. While living at Montpelier he held one political office, that of county commissioner, the duties being the appointment in the separate towns of the county of the agents who under the prohibitory law were the legalized dealers in intoxicating liquors. His term of office expired when the prohibitory law was superceded by the present local option system.
