Henry Devereaux Sewall1

M, b. 21 August 1786, d. 8 June 1846
     Henry Devereaux Sewall was born on 21 August 1786 in Marblehead, Massachusetts. He was the son of Chief Justice Samuel Sewall LL.D. and Abigail Devereaux. Henry Devereaux Sewall married Mary Catherine Norton, daughter of Birdsay Norton, on 22 January 1816 in Bloomfield, New Jersey, by the Rev. Mr. Onderdonk. In the wedding announcement the groom is described as being of the house of Hurd & Sewall, New York.2,3 Henry Devereaux Sewall died on 8 June 1846 in Watertown, New York, at the age of 59.4,5
At the age of 18 he started as a clerk in the counting house, in Boston, of his uncle, Joseph Sewall, the head of the house of Sewall, Salisbury & Co., then the principal dry goods importing and jobbing firm in New England. In 1807 the firm detailed their clerks, Henry Devereux Sewall and Arthur Tappan, the latter a brother of the junior partner in the firm, to go to Portland, in the district of Maine, and open a branch store under the firm name of Tappan & Sewall; but after doing business in Portland for two years they became discouraged by the ill effects produced by Jefferson's embargo, and in 1809 transferred the mercantile establishment to Montreal. There they were quite successful. Merchants and traders in Central and Northern New York were at that time among the principal customers of the Canadian capital city. It was there that Mr. Sewall formed acquaintanceships with Watertown merchants that shaped his course later in his career. The War of 1812 coming on, all Americans residing in Canada were required either to swear allegiance to the British Crown or to quit the country. Being patriots, and the descendants of patriots, the young traders chose the latter alternative, although to the ruin of their business, and in 1813 broke up their establishment. Mr. Tappan went directly to New York, becoming afterwards the leading dry goods merchant in that city, and a distinguished philanthropist. Mr. Sewall devoted his attention to the settling of matters of the late firm, and the collection of their outstanding debts.

Mr. Sewall's father dying in 1814 he spent a considerable part of that year in settling the estate, and early in 1815 established himself in New York in the foreign shipping and commission business, in partnership with John R. Hurd. This business proving but moderately remunerative, Mr. Hurd accepted an offer in 1823 to take the presidency of a marine insurance company in New York, and Mr. Sewall, under the advice of his uncle Joseph, the merchant in Boston, undertook a commission agency in New York in partnership with Edmund Q. Sewall, a son of Joseph, for the sale of domestic goods in connection with the foreign commission business. Joseph Sewall at that time had the agency in Boston of most of the few manufactories of cotton and woolen goods in New England, and through his intervention the firm of H. D. & E. Q. Sewall became the first in New York to undertake a similar agency in the latter market. It was thus that Mr. Sewall established an intercourse with Gilbert & Sigourney, the managers of the cotton factory at Watertown, and the latter concern becoming largely indebted to the New York house, the larger part of this indebtedness was finally transferred to property in and about Watertown.

In the financial crash of 1827 Mr. Sewall's firm in Boston, being compelled to succumb, carried down with them the house in New York of H. D. & E. Q. Sewall; and the junior partner, in the latter, dying, and the outlook for future business in New York seeming discouraging, Mr. Sewall concluded to remove with his family to Watertown, and managed the property there acquired through the intercourse with Gilbert & Sigourney, which firm also had been compelled by the extreme financial pressure of the time to withdraw from active business. He had likewise a view to the further extension of manufacturing at Watertown, and had always nourished a preference for a country life. Mr. Sewall, with the valuable assistance of those excellent men, well known to old citizens of Watertown, John Sigourney and Josiah W. Baker, carried on the old cotton factory and store from 1829 to 1834, when, the charter expiring, the factory and appurtenances were sold. In 1828-29 he constructed the dam on the Black River at the upper end of his island, built his residence on the island, then a beautiful spot, constructed or bought and afterwards sold a saw-mill and a tannery on the north side of the north branch, opposite the island, a paper mill and a machine shop on the lower point of the island on the north branch, a flouring-mill on the main branch, south side, just below the island, an extensive saw-mill at Dexter all between 1829 and I833; and in I834, with the assistance of New York and Boston capital, he erected an extensive woolen factory on the south side of the river opposite the island, and in 1834 to '35 and '36 built several brick stores on the east side of Factory Square, as well as a number of dwelling houses on Factory street, and in the neighborhood of the woolen-mills; and during the same period contributed largely to the erection of the first academy in the village (of which the late Judge Mullin was the first principal), and in 1832-33 furnished the greater part of the means for and himself attended to the construction and fitting up of the first Episcopal Church in the village, the predecessor of the present church on Court street. Later he built another flouring mill, below the woolen factory. Mr. Sewall, in connection with Merrill Coburn held, in 1833 the contract for furnishing the ties and sleepers for the Utica & Schenectady Railroad, the first railroad in the state of any length (the only previous ones being the short Mohawk & Hudson, and the Harlem, not going north of Harlem at that time) and, to carry out the contract, put up the extensive saw-mills at Dexter, and, as the sleepers were required to be of yellow pine, the contractors secured all there was of that timber along the Black River. The flood of 1833 swept all the logs into the lake at heavy loss to the contractors. From 1835 to 1843 Mr. Sewall was chiefly occupied with the business of the woolen factory, which, partly from want of sufficient skill in the manufacture of the fine goods for which the works were designed, partly from insufficiency of funds, and partly from the reduction of the tariff, did not prove ultimately profitable.

In the early spring of 1843 Mr. Sewall was badly injured by the upsetting of the Utica stage coach while on a journey to the eastward, from which time his health failed, and his business career practically closed, his death in June, 1846, being caused by the paralysis resulting from the injury.

Henry Edwin Sewall1

M, b. 22 August 1848, d. 1 August 1925
     Henry Edwin Sewall was born on 22 August 1848 in St. Augustine, Florida.2,3 He was the son of Rev. Rufus King Sewall and Anne Elizabeth Whitehurst.4,1 Henry Edwin Sewall married Abbie Evans Thomas, daughter of Seymour Thomas and Mary Evans, on 23 December 1873.2 Henry Edwin Sewall appear on the census of 1880 at New York (Manhattan), New York, where he is listed as a coal dealer.5 He died on 1 August 1925 in Daytona, Florida, at the age of 763 and is buried in All Saints Cemetery, Jensen Beach, Martin County, Florida.6

Henry Edwin Sewall of Sewall's Point, Fla., though reared in another State, is a native of Florida, having been born at St. Augustine, on August 22, 1848. His father, Rufus King Sewall, was a lawyer of note and the author of many popular historical works bearing upon the State of Maine. His mother's maiden name was Anna E. Whitehurst, who first married a Hanson, and in 1843, being a widow, was married to Rufus King Sewall, of which marriage there were five children. The Sewall family in this country traces its ancestry to Henry Sewall, who came from England to Ipswich, Mass., in 1634, and he in turn was descended from Henry Sewall, who was Mayor of Coventry, England, in 1589 and 1606. It is said that the family ancestry can be traced back to the days of the Norman Conquest in England. Samuel Sewall, the first of the family in Maine, lived at York. One of his sons, Henry, was the father of another Samuel, who was pastor of the Congregational Church in Edgecomb in 1807. This Samuel was the father of Rufus, who in turn was the father of Rufus King Sewall, who was the father of Henry E. In 1846 Rufus King Sewall and his wife removed to Florida, but only remained until 1849 when they returned to Maine where Henry E. grew up and obtained his education in the public schools of that State. In 1865 the lad entered the Merchant Marine Service, which he followed until 1876. His last voyage was around the world in the ship Benjamin Sewall of Boston. His uncle, Capt. Egbert T. Sewall, in command of the barque, Istria, was lost at sea off Cape Hatteras, on June 11, 1868. In 1876 Mr. Sewall left the sea and engaged in the wholesale retail coal business in New York, under the firm name of H. E. Sewall and Company. The business was successful and in 1889 he sold out and came to Sewall's Point, Fla., to perfect the titles of the Hanson grant, which was finally accomplished by decree of the United States Court, after fourteen years of litigation. In 1890 he took an active part in county affairs and in 1894 represented Dade county in the Legislature for two years. Since that time he has devoted his attention to the development of the section where he lives. He has held the place of Postmaster at Sewall's Point since May 12, 1891, and also served as County Commissioner in 1893.

On December 23, 1873, he married Miss Abbie E. Thomas, a daughter of Seymour and Mary (Evans) Thomas, of Nicholas, N. Y.

Captain Sewall is a Congregationalist and a Democrat. He is commodore of the Gilbert Bar Yacht Club, a life member of the Kane Lodge, No. 454, F. & A. M., of New York City, and a charter member of the Mid Rivers Country Club. He is an active member of the Pineapple Growers' Association and the Pineapple League. For Florida Captain Sewall thinks that the most important question is good roads, with cheaper and better transportation, which will encourage the immigration needed and build up the State. In his reading he is very partial to historical works and rates very highly such current periodicals as The Independent and other magazines of that class. As a matter of interest in his career, it may be mentioned that at the time the barque Istria was lost, as above stated, he was the second mate and was one of the four saved, washed ashore on wreckage after being in the water 9 hours.

Captain Sewall comes of that New England stock which has written such marvelous pages upon the history of our land. Their sturdiness of character is illustrated by the strength of their convictions. A man reared in Maine who is a lifetime Democrat does not need any other testimonial as to the rigidity of his principles, and the Sewall family of that State are prominent in that respect. One-third of the Hanson tract of land to which he perfected titles after such a hard struggle has been in his family since the year 1823, or just four years after Florida was acquired from Spain. During his life as a sailor he voyaged around the world several times on sailing ships, making very long trips, and acquired a world experience, which has been valuable to him in later life. Since settling at Sewall's Point and perfecting the titles to the lands he has been engaged in building up a select colony at that place, and the government engineers have but recently recommended a very large appropriation for improvements to be made in that vicinity. It is but just to state that to his efforts mainly are due the splendid improvements already made at Santa Lucia inlet, and Captain Sewall believes that if the present contemplated improvements are carried out that the Santa Lucia inlet will be the gateway for freight to the west coast of Florida. A man of affairs and capable in business he occupies in the community in which he lives that commanding position to which his merits and his labors entitle him.

Homer Sewall1

M, b. 10 July 1924, d. 9 June 1944
     Homer Sewall was born on 10 July 1924.1 He was the son of Homer Sewall and Marjorie Hartwell.1 Homer Sewall was killed on 9 June 1944 in Normandy, France, at the age of 19.1 Private 31311877 Homer Sewall Jr. was serving in the U.S. Army, 326th Medical Company, 101st Airborne Division. He is buried in the Normandy American Cemetery, Colleville-sur-Mer, Plot: E Row: 8 Grave: 34. He was awarded the Purple Heart.2

At Holderness School, Chapel Lane, Holderness, NH 03245 "[the] aisle window in the Chapel of the Holy Cross is dedicated to the memories of brothers Richard Hartwell Sewall '39 and Homer Sewall Jr. '42. While at Holderness, both boys were varsity athletes, active in the school musicals, and heavily involved in school life and leadership.

Homer, known at Holderness as "Squeak," threw a game-winning touchdown pass in the 1941 game against Proctor, and helped spearhead campus fund-raising for the British War Relief Fund. Homer joined the army right out of Holderness, and was placed in the medical corps with a unit that was scheduled to remain in England during the invasion. He instead volunteered for service with the airborne troops, landed with them in Normandy on D-Day, and died two days later. The window panel honoring Homer depicts Saint Stephen, the first martyr (l).

Richard was a dive-bomb pilot in the central Pacific during the war, later training other pilots until his discharge in December, 1945. He died the following May from complications related to rapid changes in altitude. Richard's panel depicts Saint Timothy (r), who assisted St. Paul and who became bishop of Ephesus at a young age. Bishop Dallas said of the window's subject that, since Richard "was unusually mature for his age and had already undertaken heavy responsibilities, the choice is especially appropriate."3"

Howard Sewall1

M, b. 30 December 1838
     Howard Sewall was born on 30 December 1838 in Chesterville, Franklin County, Maine.1,2 He was the son of Otis Crosby Sewall and Abigail Morgridge.1 Howard Sewall married firstly Florilla Fuller, daughter of Edward Fuller and Harriet Oliva Townsend, on 8 November 1863 in Chesterville, Franklin County, Maine.3,2 Howard Sewall married secondly Carrie (Caroline) Marcia Weston on 6 November 1900 in East Livermore, Maine,
QUIET WEDDING. Mr. Howard Sewall. of Livermore Falls. Me., and Miss Carrie Murcla Weston, of this city, were married last Tuesday afternoon at the residence of Mr. and Mrs A. L. Smith, 93 Antrim street. The ceremony was performed by Rev. R. A. Beard. D. D., of the Prospect Street church. After a brief wedding trip, the newly married pair will make their home in East Livermore. Me. Cambridge Chronicle, 10 November 1900.3,4


"a highly esteemed resident of Livermore Falls, Maine. Lived at Chesterville until 1882; then moved to East Livermore. He was schooled in Chesterville and afterwards became a contractor and a lumberman. He and his wife attended the Universalist Church. He was an Odd Fellow. There is no other man who by individual effort, has done more for the building up of Livermore Falls than Howard Sewall. His boyhood was passed on the ancestral farm of his grandfather, Dummer Sewall, at Chesterville. When a very young man, he, with his brother Eugene, in addition to carrying on the farm, purchased a sawmill and manufactured doors, sashes and blinds, until 1880. Then the Eugene Sewell moved to Livermore Falls. At that time of the population of the village was about 600 but with a foresight that has always actuated the enterprises of the Sewall brothers they felt that the probabilities of the future warranted the establishment there of a life business. They purchased of Deacon Amos Parker 20 acres of pasture land on the southeast outskirts of Livermore Falls and Eugene Sewall built a fine residence there. In 1882, having sold the ancestral Sewall farm at Chesterville Mr Howard Sewall joined his brother Eugene at Livermore Falls and built a handsome home on Pine Avenue. The Sewalls continued their business under the firm name of E. & H. Sewall, carrying a complete stock of mouldings, doors, sash, blinds, and dimensioned lumber of all kinds. This firm was widely known, and noted for the integrity of its dealings, and the business was carried on most successfully until the death of Eugene Sewall in 1906.

These Sewall brothers also turned their attention to the 20 acre tract of land which they had purchased, laying out streets there and making other improvements preparatory to building the extension of the village in that direction which has since been known as a Sewallville, a picturesque hillside now covered with attractive and well kept dwellings. Up to 1906 twenty-four tenement houses, some single and some double, had been erected in Sewallville and the owners had made it a point to keep it one of the highest class neighbourhoods in the town, several of the tenants having occupied their homes for many years. Land was also purchased in the northern part of Livermore Falls Village and three houses were built on Green Street and four on Knapp Street, which, with the family residences, made a total of 34 houses built by the Sewalls. Since the death of his brother Eugene, Mr Howard Sewall has retired from active business and gives his attention to the care of his real estate. He is a man typical of the best old New England stock, shrewd, keen, keen to legitimate business interests but no believer in the modern get-rich-quick wildcat schemes. Genial and quick-witted, he possesses a quaint humour that makes him a most interesting conversationalist and he is brisk and happy. He is an influential member of the Universalist Church, and active in the educational and industrial interests of the community but says that he has never had time to fool with political rings, and it is a one of the best satisfactions of his life that he has never run for office of any kind."3
