Vol. n August, 1909 No. 1

THE TOWN OF HADLEY, :MASSACHUSETTS TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS OLD AUGUST, 1909

HlTHERTG UnPUBUSHED HISTORICAL, DaTA.

The celebration of the quarter-millennium anniversary of the founding of Hadley has brought to light the fact that, in addition to the numerous printed vrorks on this ancient town, there is a vast amount of unprinted information in the manuscripts prepared by the late Dr. Franklin Bonney and his friend and colleague, Mr. Elbridge Kingsley. A very small portion of this collection, it is the pleasure of The Grafton Magazine to present in this issue, and it is to be hoped that, as a result of this publication, the town, or some of its public-spirited sons, may be led to provide for the publication of entire manuscripts in the near future. Certain it is that few New England towns have had more unselfish and pains- taking historians than these two gentlemen, and, if it were not for tliem, a great deal of data would have been entirely lost. •. . ,.

. _•- INTRODUCTION

By Elbridge Kingsley

It seems fitting, in view of the coming celebration at Hadley in August, 1909, that something be said of the Bonney collection of manuscripts, preserved at the Forbes Library, Northampton.

In the last part of this physician's life, he was very anxious to preserve all of historic interest connected with his native town. In

this work I was glad to assist him in every possible way. The work grew under our hands till his death.

The first of it was a gathering of inscriptions from all the cem- eteries of the town.

Then we made a map of the cemetery at the Center, showing prominent names, especially of early settlers of the first sixty years, in the ancient part of the grounds.

Then we conceived the idea that all data connected with the home- ir, steads of the forty-eight first settlers would be valuable, and we made several sketch maps of the broad Front Street, showing dif- ferent periods of town history, based mainly on the authority of r ' Judd. This work also grew till we had a pretty complete history of each homestead to the year 1900.

Meanwhile, we were not sure of the old homestead boundaries, as the place had undergone many changes, and both ends of the street were encroached upon by the river. Finally we found time to survey and locate these old landmarks, and had the satisfaction of agreeing very nearly with traces of the old lines yet to be seen. This was the last work of Dr. Bcnney of this nature in the old town. We added this plan to our history of the homesteads.

Thus, to properly locate with the modem houses, this last plan (reproduced herewith) should be used. We intended to add to each homestead history further memoranda as the facts came to Hght, and this also led naturally to a desire to put into writing the fund of reminiscence and legend with which the Doctor's memory was stored. This he was busy compiling till his death.

In all this work, there was no thought of gain or even of publica- tion. Our only care was the safe preservation of the collection for the benefit of the future historians. Hence the kind offer of the use of the safety vaults of the Forbes Library for storing the manu- scripts fitted our needs, and was accepted.

I regret that my life-long friend did not live to see this last celebra- tion in the old town that he loved so well.

THE ORIGINAL SETTLERS OF HADLEY AND THE LOTS OF LAND GRANTED THEM

By Da. Feankun Bonnet and Elbeedge Kingslet. ^"^"-i-^r-

In placing the positions of the original plots and the houses, there is much room for conjecture at the present date of 1900. There is no certainty of establishing the exact sites of the first houses. The original lines of the plots can be found nearly accurately by measur- ing from three points, namely, the lower road to Northampton, the Cemetery, and Russell Street. •■ -a
