possibly age 45, 1837 photo

Family: Joseph Denny Sargent b. 7 Jan 1787, d. 24 May 1849

Biography:
Letter written Nov 1846 by Eliza Barney in Leicester, MA to her husband Nathaniel in Nantucket "...Mrs. Sargent (Mindwell Jones Sargent) called. She is a strong minded woman, and considering her position quite a heroine. She has two sons engaged in business in Georgia, one daughter married in Kentucky, and her husband and her brother here, both pro-slavery and Taylorites. Still through all the opposition she maintains her dignity...We took tea at Colonel Sargent's. It was a large party, and taken as a whole rather a pleasant one. The later part of the afternoon, I took a solitary ramble of 2 or 3 miles, and then dressed tor the occation...We went about six...The Southgates, the Clapps, the Uphams, the Flints, Mrs. May and some others who I did not know composed the company. About seven, after exhaustion had taken almost complete possession of me, the tea was handed around, not in a style to suit thee, and I was glad thou was not present (though Mrs. Sargent and Mrs. May expressed a contrary opinion), for the reason that this exhilerating beverage had taken a chill on its passage, was slow in its progress, and in many other respects not in accordance with thy fastidious taste. The bread and butter would not have suited thee, and the cake was composed of citron and currants, two articles for which thou art known to have the greatest horror."..."This George Sargent is the girls beau ideal of manly excellence. He is very large, with broad square shoulders, prominent angular features, a profusion of long black hair, both on his head and chin and large piercing black eyes, and when he smooths his habitual frown, there is a sunlight on his countenance that is irrestibly striking. He has a noble magnanimous soul, an integrity manifest even in his boyhood, and a versitility of character that takes the girls completely captive.

Eleanor Woodward

ID #560, (1720-)

Family: Nathaniel Jones b. 5 Apr 1707, d. 1795

Biography:
  • Eleanor Woodward was born on 20 Jun 1720.
  • She married Nathaniel Jones, son of Nathaniel Jones and Mary Cook, on Thursday, 22 Jun 1758.1
  • ***Research Note: In Bond's Watertown it says the second child of Ebenezer and Mindwell was a male named Ebenezer, who possibly moved to Coventry, CT. This is corrected in NEHGR by Samuel Woodward writing in 1896, saying 'Bond's Watertown has Ebenezer instead of Eleanor, an evident error - M.F.P (Mary Frances Peirce of Weston who copied this piece for the register.)2,3
