[NI0056] Elizabeth was apparently married to a Mr North before she married Stephen Sedgwick. The Farmington record apparently lists the marriage as to Elizabeth North. (1934 Manuscript page 104.)

[NI0057] Joseph Harris was killed by Indians in August 1721 according to a monument for him at the graveyard in Litchfield, his gravestone, but a searach at reveals this: "August 1721 [mistake for 1723, as in Dec. 1722, he was elected collector]"

[NI0060] Died as a result of childbirth.

[NI0062] Only one child.

[NI0069] Bessie Annis (Colburn) Sedgwick died in a nursing home in Milwaukee per letter from son Kenneth Gilmore Sedgwick. He couldn't remember name of home.

[NI0071] Hazel living in Pendleton Oregon, 1971

[NI0072] The family moved from Athol, Massachusetts to Madison, Wisconsin in 1906, then to Milwaukee a year later. Myrtha would then have died after the move to Milwaukee in 1907.

[NI0076] Emma married Colburn, then Jaquette (sp?), then Hall. She is buried in the Sedgwick family plot at Valhalla Cemetery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, presumably as Emma Hall.
In the 1880 census, the Colburns are sharing a house with H C Hall and family. Is it possible that this is the Mr Hall she eventually married?

[NI0115] Her descendants live in Cazenovia New York. Both Francis M Sedgwick and Hubert M Sedgwick later agreed, even though Hubert initially said in "Family Record: The Descendants of Gordon Sedgwick," that Betsey had no descendants. He corrected that in his Supplement 1. Moses Barrett appears in Cazenovia New York in the 1820, 1830 and 1840 census index.

[NI0117] No children

[NI0119] Martha was second wife of Amasa Barrett. They had n children. Amasa Barrett Jr was son of Amasa by his first wife. In the 1850 census AMasa Jr and his wife Rebecca are with Amasa Sr and Martha. In the 1860 and 1870 census Martha, now a widow, is living with Amasa Jr and Rebecca.

[NI0126] Deborah Higgins is supposed to be a descendant of Thomas Rogers of the Mayflower and his son Joseph.
We don't have the source documentation to prove it.
See for more information.

[NI0128] Deborah Sedgwick (413) who married Jonathan Sedgwick (214) was the daughter of Samuel (41), the son of Joseph (4) the son of Samuel Sedgwick and Mary Hopkins.

[NI0129] Samuel Served as a Captain of the Armory during the Revolutionary War, and several of his descendants have been members of the Daughters of the American Revolution. A transcript of an official certification of his service can be found on page 60 of the manuscript "A Genealogy of the Sedgwick Family in America since 1635"

[NI0130] Never married

[NI0150] Goodwin in his "Genealogical Notes" shows another child - 14 William, born June 29, 1707.
George Sedgwick concluded that Goodwin was in error, that this William was in fact the same William (21) son of Jonathan 2. See "A Genealogy of the Sedgwick Family in America since 1635" page 5. and New Haven Colony Historical Society Sedgwick Collection MSS-B46 Box 6 Folder D sheet 5, both available at

[NI0154] Samuel definitely died in December 25, 1724, not on Dec 16, 1725 as shown on his gravestone. Read these extracted probate records:

[NI0155] William became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery in Boston in 1666.

[NI0156] All five children were still alive, at least to Robert's knowledge, on November 5, 1655, when he mentioned his wife and 5 children in a letter to "your highness"

Robert's sister Sarah Sedgwick married Leverett, later the governor of Massachusetts. Many, including Goodwin in his Genealogical Notes, have erroneously claimed she was daughter of Robert, but Governor Leverett's entry in his family Bible states "9th September 1647 marryed Sarah, daughter to Elizabeth Sedgwick the widow of William Sedgwicke, married at Louisham in Kent at the home of her brother Mr Robert Houghton." A reproduction in heliotype of the original entries in Governor Leverett's handwriting appeared in the privately published (1897) "Ancestry of Descendants of Richard Saltonstall", opposite page 150. Noted in NHCHS MSS-B46 Box 6 Folder B sheet 17.

[NI0159] Samuel returned to England, where he became a cloth weaver.
There was a report of another child, Sarah, supposedly mentioned in the will of her mother Elizabeth (Harwood) (Sedgwick) Wesendunck, August 21, 1718. However, when the will was found, we did not see her there.

[NI0161] Robert was a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery.
He died on a voyage to Jamacia in 1683.

[NI0162] Two records for him exist in the "Gene Pool Individual Records" at On shows birth Hartford, Connecticut, the other Johnstown, Montgomery, New York.

[NI0199] Albett and Victoria came form Europe in 1858, lived in Canada for several years and moved to Sharon Township, Portage County, Wisconsin in 1866.
There farm was 200 acres. Albett was ninety-six years old when he died in 1910. Victoria died in 1917 at age 94.

[NI0202] Name may be Pelowska or Petowski

[NI0212] John Hopkins was one of the first settlers of Hartford Connecticut

[NI0227] Mary Hopkins was the daughter of Joseph Hopkins, the brother of Stephen's mother Mary. She m1 Joseph Harris, m2 Stephen Sedgwick.

[NI0234] According to the Orton book, he and Elizabeth were the first white settlers of Cornwall, Connecticut.

[NI0237] Wrote to George Sedgwick May 2, 1852. There is a note that he lived to be about 102 years old.

[NI0241] During the Civil War he was captured and held at Tyler, Texas for two years, escaped and rejoined his unit.

[NI0260] Adam Omernik died at birth, about 1896 or 1897 (third child)

[NI0268] According to her grandson, Kenneth G Sedgwick, Jr. Mary Luella Miller was a full blooded Ottowa Indian who stayed with the Millers and worked around the house, and eventually took their name.

[NI0272] Ella A Mcwayne's family belileved to be Presbyterian

[NI0277] At census time in 1880, Christopher and Mary B were living with son Peter H at Pentwater, Oceana, MI, as were Katie (Catherine), Mary and George, ages 20, 16 and 13. In that census, both Christopher and Mary B listed their place of birth as Germany, but Christopher's immigration and naturalization record show him as from France. Christopher is listed as dying at Rosiere and being buried at the Fraley Lot in RosiereCemetery (dau Julia m. Peter Fraley). He must have returned to New York to live with his eldest daughter in his old age.

[NI0289] Peter operated a tugboat at Pentwater, MI

[NI0303] His obituary in the ROMAN CITIZEN newspaper, Rome, Oneida County, New York, Friday, May 12, 1865: SEDGWICK - In Hospital, at Braser City, near New Orleans, on the first day of April, 1865, of congestive fever, WILLIAM W. SEDGWICK, member of the 25th N.Y. Artillery, and son of Theron Sedgwick of Verona, Oneida County, NY, aged 27 years. Online at US Genweb Project,

I found this record for the Chalmette National Cemetery New Orleans LA
SEC/GRAVE: 19/543
This is certainly him. Was he actually buried in New Orleans, and the marker at Lowell Cemetery simply a memorial? Note, however, that the death date does not match either the grave or the newspaper report.

[NI0308] One of the genealogists (probably Charles Frederick Sedgwick) had contact with this family in 1896. They were living in Elgin, Illinois, Mable, Elsie and Edna were all young adults and still lived with their parents. Mabel was a teacher; Edna a stenographer.

[NI0319] Westell visited George Sedgwick in Chicago March 2, 1854. Said he was unmarried, but a search at World Tree has a Westle W Sedgwick that has to be him married in 1848 to Sarah Ann Toombs, wih six children eventually. I have attempted to contact the author by e-mail. -DGS, June 10, 1999.

[NI0427] HIRAM SEDGWICK, retired farmer, P. O. Waterford, was born in Rensselaer Co., N. Y., July 16, 1808; eldest son of Aaron and Betsy Sedgwick, former a native of Massachusetts and brother of Louis Sedgwick, whose biography appears in this work. Our subject came to Erie Co. with his parents in 1825; he married Jan. 28, 1830, Miss Julia A. eighth child of Benjamin Grant, a native of Connecticut, who came to Erie Co. in 1800, with his wife and three children; he worked at an early day at blacksmithing and reared a family of ten children, five now living; he served one term as Poor Director. Two of his sons, Benjamin and William C. were soldiers in the war of 1812; he died in 1849, aged eighty years. Seven children were born to this union, five now living, viz.: Solyman, who received an honorable discharge after serving nine months in the Army of the Potomac, during the late war; Almena, wife of Hardin Marsh; Bertram, Louisa, Effie; Arthur died in his eighteenth year. Mr. and Mrs. Sedgwick are among the landmarks of the county, having lived together more than fifty years. The latter has been for over ten years an invalid. The former spends many hours of his old age fishing, a recreation he is very fond of; he is the owner of his father's homestead, consisting of 108 acres of well-improved land.

It is important to note that there are two William Sedgwicks listed by Goodwin. He lists on page 183 William the son of Samuel Sedgwick and Mary Hopkins, who married Miriam (Webster) Hopkins. He lists on page 180 William their grandson, son of their son Jonathan Sedgwick and Isabel Stebbins. They are both the same person, the son of Jonathan and Isabel.
Several statements of close descendants are cited in "A Genealogy of the Sedgwick Family in America since 1635" pages 6 and 7, online at The most definitive proof, however, is the Bible that William apparently obtained from his sister Isabel. Here is a transcription of a document at the New Haven Colony Historical Society MSS-B46 Box 67 Folder M, written by Hubert Merrill Sedgwick:
"Frederick J Sedgwick says in his Family History: "That the two William Sedgwicks (referring to Goodwin's Notes) are the same person is indicated by the following taken from a book with this inscription:
"‘Isabel Sedgwick, her Bible from her father, Jonathan Sedgwick, 1756' The record commences with : ‘The names and ages of Jonathan Sedgwick's and Ezbell Sedgwick's children, which God have given them."
"This Bible seems to have passed from Isabel to William (21) as a record of his marriage, May 8 1740, and is followed by an entry by him as follows: ‘Elizabeth Sedgwick my wife died July 5, 1759.' This is followed by a record of the births of the children of William and his first wife, Elizabeth, then a record of his second marriage: ‘William Sedgwick and Miriam his wife married May 14, 1761.' This is followed by a record of the births of the children of William and Miriam...."
The document is accompanied by a transcription from the Bible which lists the children that Goodwin attributes on Page 180 to William and Elizabeth Brace, and also lists the children that he attributes on page 183 and 184 to (the other) William and Miriam Hopkins. This transcription, then is the official source of the birth dates of the children of William by both wives, except that no date appears for Miles.
The transcription also provides marriage dataes for Elizabeth and William Stevens, Rhoda and Elisha Seymour, Isabel and Chauncey Seymour, and Sarah anf George Bidwell.

The Sedgwick Memorial Medal
The Sedgwick Memorial Medal,awarded by APHA since 1929 for distinguished service and "advancement of public health knowledge and practice," was established in honor of the late Professor William Thompson Sedgwick, who was President of the APHA in 1915 and Head of the Department of Biology and Public Health at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1883 to 1921. One of the highest honors bestowed by APHA, the Sedgwick Memorial Medal is a true accolade of the profession--the recognition by an individual's colleagues of outstanding accomplishments in the field. Recipients are selected by the APHA Awards Committee.

[NI0816] Notes May 1999 by Dennis Sedgwick,
We are very sure that Seth Sacket, #159 in the Weygant book, is the father of Hannah Sacket, wife of Gordon Sedgwick for these reasons:
The birth date of Hannah Sacket daughter of Seth Sacket matches the expected date. Hannah wife of Gordon Sedgwick died on 5 May 1838 age 83 according to her gravestone, which. I saw personally in 1998.
Seth's brother John #158 is listed as "of Westfield, so it is likely that Seth was , also.
It is likely that Seth Sacket is also the father of Grace Sacket, wife of Titus Sedgwick, and of Sarah Sacket, wife of Ebenezer Sedgwick. Seth's three daughters match the names of the three Sedgwick wives, They are in the right area at the right time. There are no other husbands listed for these daughters. Titus and Grace named their first son Seth Sacket Sedgwick.
Also, Judy Rea and her daughter found a family tree online that agreed with these conclusions. She is attempting to contact the originator.
The Weygant Sacket book is now online at:

[NI0851] "This John Sacket dropped the final 't' in signing his name and several generations of his descendants followed his example, but nearly all of his living descendants have resumed its use." - Sackets of America, Weygant pg 16

[NI0879] Abraham spelled his name "Abram" in his bible.

[NI0883] Thankful is assumed to have died before her father, Dec 3 1759 as she is not mentioned in his will. - 1934 Manuscript

[NI0885] According to Goodwin and FM Sedgwick this Ebenezer died in 1759, yet FM in 1934 manuscript lists son Abraham Whitney Sedgwick as born in 1770.

[NI0889] Wintonbury, Hatford, Connecticut was not a town, but a church parish in Hartford County consisting of parts of the towns of WINdsor, FarmingTON and SimsBURY, now Bloomfield, per one Frederick A Hesketh, posted at a Hartford County queries board.

According to database "Gene Pool Individual Records - Marriages", Thankful Sedgewick Cadwell married Allyn Whiting, 18 July 1800 at West Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. Is this Thankful the widow or the daughter of Joseph Cadwell?

291. ALFRED LYON CONVERSE8 (Marquis7(124), Alpheus,6 James,5 Ensign Edward,4 Samuel,3 Sergeant Samuel,2 Deacon Edward1), born in Brimfield, Mass., 23 October 1824. His education began in the common schools of Birmfield and was completed at the Quaboag Seminary, at Warren, Mass., under Prof. Joshua Pearl. For many years he followed general farming and lumbering, in his native town, and incidentally carried on several building enterprises. In the fall of 1859, he was given a position as land examiner on the Illinois Central Railroad. At the expiration of the time required for the fulfilment of his duties as examiner he was offered a lucrative position in the office of the land department of that railroad, but preferred to return East and cast his lot among his kindred. For a period of thirty-one years in succession he served the town of Brimfield as Treasurer. He also filled the offices of Assessor, Selectman, Overseer of the Poor, and represented the town in the legislature. He was chosen Treasurer of the Hitchcock Free Academy of Brimfield when its funds amounted to $10,000. He served in that capacity for twenty-five years, and upon his retirement left to his successor the custody of $84,000. During the Civil War he assisted in collecting and disbursing funds subscribed for the purpose of furnishing the town's quota to the army. In 1881, he moved to Warren, Mass., where he has given his attention to the real estate business. He has served as selectman of Warren for two years. In politics he is Republican, and in religious denomination Congregationalist. His progressive tendencies as well as the integrity he has displayed in managing public trusts have won for him the esteem of the entire community. He married, 20 October 1847, Almira Chickering Sedgewick, of Palmer, Mass., daughter of John and Asenath Burt (Scott) Sedgewick. Mrs. Asenath Burt (Scott) Sedgewick was born 13 January 1780, married 1813, died April 1877. She was daughter of William and Violett (Burt) Scott.

[NI1573] Sedgwick, Anne Douglas
(1873-1935), writer

Born on March 28, 1873, in Englewood, New Jersey, Anne Sedgwick lived from the age of nine in London, where her father had business connections. In 1898 a novel she had written for private amusement was, through her father's efforts, published in London as The Dull Miss Archinard. The success of that book led her to produce in rapid order The Confounding of Camelia (1899), The Rescue (1902), Paths of Judgment (1904), The Shadow of Life (1907), A Fountain Sealed (1907), Anabel Channice (1908), and Franklin Winslow Kane (1910). Writing in much the same vein as Edith Wharton and Henry James, Sedgwick contrasted the mores and morals of American and European cultures. Tante (1911), her first major success, was a best-seller in the United States. The Nest, a collection of stories (1912), and The Encounter (1914) followed.

During World War I Sedgwick and her husband, essayist Basil de Sélincourt (whom she had married in 1908) worked in hospitals and orphanages in France. After the war Sedgwick resumed her writing, producing a nonfiction work, A Childhood in Brittany Eighty Years Ago (1919), as well as several stories and novels, including The Little French Girl (1924), another best-seller. In 1931, during her last visit to the United States, she was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters. After a lengthy illness she died in Hampstead, England, on July 19, 1935.

[NI1643] Worked on a Sedgwick family Tree, which in 1934 was in possession of his nephew Robert H Sedgwick (4144192) of Chicago.

[NI1645] In 1861 they hlived at Jersey City, New Jersey and had one child. In 1896 they were living in Brooklyn New York, and had five or six children.

[NI1649] At the "Monona Lake Assembly", Lakeside Madison, Wisconsin, 1882:
"Rev. H. G. Sedgwick, with his large Equatorial Telescope, will be present during the Assembly, and accommodate all who wish to study the heavens."

[NI1650] These notes are from an Karen Sedgwick, grand-daughter of Frederick, in an e-mail message July 21, 2000:

My understanding is that Datus took his family and relocated to Farmington, Van Buren, Iowa around 1866 (Frederick would have been 11-12 yrs old). I know Datus was a watchmaker.

Frederick was a dreamer, and had trouble sticking to watch making. He was also an inventor, and he supposedly invented a code de-cyphering machine. He somehow lost the chance to patent it. He is reported to have said that someone stole the machine and/or patent from him. He was a telegraph operator in Dodge City, KA, when Wyatt Earp was Marshall there, but Frederick apparently never met him. He moved my Grandmother, and my father to D. C. so he could further his career as an inventor - but his dreams never panned out and he died just when his money ran out. My grandmother, Ella, separated from him around 1920. She owned and operated a rooming house, and Frederick would take the money from rent and pour it into his inventions...Ella got fed up with this and he left them. I understand he ended up living right across the street from Ella and Paul.

I suspect that although he was 18 at the time of the separation, my father was deeply affected by this family split. My uncle Bob was a young adult at the time of the family's move to D. C., and he stayed behind in Chicago, where he met and married my Aunt Eve (Evaline Stuart).

By the way, my mother, Rae Ebner Sedgwick, was born in Washington, D. C., and my father was a very successful attorney there for 58 years (until just 4 months before his death). All of us 3 children were born in D.C. and grew up there. My mother sold our family home when she remarried in 1984...

[NI1809] The 1830 and 1840 censuses indicate that there may have been as many as four daughters.

[NI1811] Someone said three children, but the census record that has to be widow Harriet Sedgwick shows two sons and three daughters. Is it possible that hte older of those sons is Elmer Sedgwick of Fulton, Rock, Wisconsin in the 1860 and 1870 census?

[NI1812] They had many children.

[NI1823] There can be little doubt that Francis Milton Sedgwick listed by Farncis Morris Sedgwick was actually Frances Milton "Fanny" Sedgwick who married Thomas Ensin Chubbock. The name similarity, the rigt dates and the mother's name Chloe are the convincing factors.

[NI1834] Richard and Ruth had a tough time. In 1780 near Fort George, NY, Richard as a Private in the Rev. War, was taken prisoner (with others) by the Indians. He was taken to Montreal, where confined for 13 months. Then was taken up the St. Lawrence River where he remained for a year, before being
sent to Boston in exchange for British prisoners. He rejoined the arm in Dec of 1782 and was discharged June 9, 1783. Part of his pension application in 1818 says:
"The deponent further says that he is in reduced and indigent circumstances and requires the assistance of his country for support."

He had lost his discharge papers that were signed by George Washington (!) He lists his assets that are valued at $60. His farm had been ravaged by grasshoppers. His pension was granted:

"I Charles Wylie, one of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas of Oneida County as aforesaid, do certify that it appears to my satisfaction that the said Richard Larrabee did serve in the Revolutionary War as stated in the preceding affidavit, against the common enemy..."

Ruth later applied for a pension after Richard died. There is testimony signed by her brother Elijah Sedgwick.

SEDGWICK - At her residence in Verona, New York, November 16, 1885, Mrs. PHILOTHETA SEDGWICK, relict of the late Theron Sedgwick, aged 78 years. (RCNov20/1885) (obit follows)

Mrs. Philotheta Sedgwick died at her home in Verona on Monday, November 16, 1885, aged 78 years. She had been rather frail for some years, but the illness of which she died was only of three days duration. Her eldest son, Mr. Edwin C. Sedgwick, who resides in Newark, New York, came down to visit his mother on Saturday, November 14, 1885, and she was able to go to the door and meet him, but even then the shadow of the death angel's wing was over her. She took to her bed the same day and continued to fail rapidly till her death, which occurred the following Monday. She was buried in
Lowell cemetery Thursday (November 19, 1885). Funeral services being conducted at her late residence by her pastor, Rev. W.C. Taylor, of the Verona Presbyterian Church.
Deceased was a native of Monroe County, NY, where she resided till her marriage, at the age of 18, to her late husband, Theron Sedgwick, who died about two years ago. At that time Mr. Sedgwick occupied a farm in Westmoreland about a mile east of his last place of residence. There they continued to reside till about 1842, when they removed to the farm in Verona where both spent the remainder of their days, and which has been conducted for a number of years past by the youngest son, Mr. Allan Sedgwick. Some fifty-eight years they walked side by side in happy wedlock, and the tie which united them so long was only severed for a brief two years. They have met again on that beautiful shore where there shall be no more partings, and where they will enjoy each other's society through the cycles of a blissful immortality.
Seven children survive her, and while they mourn the loss of one so dear to them they realize that their loss is her eternal gain. The children are three sons and four daughters, viz: -- Edwin C., of Newark, NY; Alfred, of Riga, NY; Allan, of Verona, NY; Mrs. Jerusha Rouse, Glencoe, Minn.; Mrs. Emily Palmer, Churchville, NY; and Mrs. Emily Morton and Mrs. Frances Going, of Rome, NY. (RCNov20/1885)

Remained in St. Mary's until 1878 and came to Rossville with the removal of his central office to this place. Has been very successful in business and has by constant and assiduous effort made Rossville the center of Pottawatomie land market. Mr. Sedgwick has a most complete set of abstract books, embracing the original Indian allotment roll, from Government records and a complete abstract record of all original Indian titles, situated in Shawnee, Pottawatomie, Wabaunsee, and Jackson counties, so that the title any tract of land may be readily traced through all of its transfers to the final grantor, insuring the purchaser an accurate abstract of title. Mr. S. conducted the Kansas Valley Times from the date of its establishment at St. Mary's in 1874, and after its removal to Rossville in 1878 until its final sale, June 15, 1882, when the outfit was removed to Topeka. He was editor and proprietor of this journal and its success is attested by the testimony of the leading citizens of Rossville. Mr. S. was also engaged in banking a few years in St. Mary's. He was born in Brooklyn, N. Y., February 19, 1847; remained in his native city until twenty-three years of age; did business in New York City in dry goods importing. Erected his present handsome residence in 1880 at a cost of $4,000 and his commodious office in 1882 at a cost of $1,500. Had also a well arranged barn, containing two good teams and carriages for the convenience of parties desiring to look at land. Has also windmill and pump with hose attached, to be used in case of fire or for irrigating purposes. He was married December 23, 1868, at New York City, Miss Mary A. Chadsey, a daughter of A. J.

Allison Coulter Sedgwick

Allison Coulter Sedgwick, daughter of Joel Wright Coulter and Edna Alice Barlow, died Oct. 28, 2001, at home in Davis, giving up a struggle with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

As a bright, curious woman, she enjoyed a noteworthy and diversified life as a businesswoman in the financial marketplace, with friends, civic duties, religious studies, travel and performance arts taking priority. In the 1970s she was president of the Kern Unit of the American Cancer Society, subsequently becoming State Division Board representative, and member of the Board of Directors in 1981.

Additionally, as a third-generation Californian, she was a popular lecturer on historical California women throughout the state. A consistent theme throughout her life was her open-minded approach toward new ideas and a friendly attitude motivating communication.

Born in Los Angeles on July 27, 1912, she moved as an infant with her parents to their ranch in Kern County near Bakersfield. She was home taught until fourth grade, when she enrolled at Buena Vista School in a one-room country school on the corner of the family's section of land.

Her family returned to Los Angeles in 1927 where she graduated from Marlborough High School. Attending the University of California, Los Angeles, she was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and earned a bachelor's degree in botany. In the late 1950s she attended Cal State University, Fresno, and received an elementary teaching credential.

Life milestones included living on Oahu during the Pearl Harbor bombing on Dec. 7, 1941; marrying Dr. Frederick Paul Sedgwick, a third-generation doctor, in 1942; and the birth of their daughter Deborah Coulter Sedgwick. Her ancestral family migrated from Scotland and Ireland and England in the 1700s, settling in both the north and southern territories of the new world. Transportation links from the East Coast brought the pioneering families to Los Angeles on the distaff side by the Lewis and Clark Trail, establishing the Barlow Toll Road, while on the staff side from Clarksville, Tenn., by the Transcontinental Railway in 1877. Both families were entrepreneurs.

In 1980 she moved to Boise, Idaho, where she continued managing her business while organizing lectures for brown-bag lunches at the Idaho Historical Museum and earning a Master Gardener certificate through the University of Idaho Cooperative Extension. In 1995 she moved to Davis, where she set up residency near her daughter's family. As a strong promoter of the arts, she joined The Friends of UCD Presents and donated significantly to the UC Davis Center for the Arts campaign.

Additionally, she was a benefactor of Northern California Children's Therapy Center in Woodland both ideologically as well as contributing significantly in the name of Lisa Brittan, supporting the vital work of the therapists and staff providing quality therapies for children with a variety of special needs. CTC has named a therapy room in her memory.

She also participated in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's new theater fund in Ashland.

She leaves behind her daughter, Deborah Sedgwick Brittan and son-in-law Kent, and two grandchildren Laurel and Lisa Brittan; her sister-in-law, Janet Coulter Poteete and her children Suzanne Mulvehill, Becky Rogers, Colleen Bellue, Reese Coulter and Joel Barlow Coulter; and first cousin Jane Inch Gessler of Oakland.

On her husband's side she leaves her sister-in-law, Emily Sedgwick Stone, and her remaining child John Sedgwick Stone; and nieces and nephews, Richard Sedgwick of Alma, Dr. Robert Clinton Sedgwick of Louisville, Ky., and Emily Ann Sedgwick of Torrance.

Donations in her memory may be sent to the Northern Children's Therapy Center, 96 W Main St., Woodland, CA 95695. The center is a public benefit nonprofit corporation (EIN 68-0309705).

Quote from "A Sedgwick Genealogy"
Theodore was but thirteen years old when his father died. Through the assistance of his brother, John, he was enabled to attend Yale College for a time, although he did not graduate. After leaving college he took up the study of divinity but soon abandoned it for the law. He studied with Mark Hopkins of Great Barrington, Mass., the grandfather of Mark Hopkins, the distinguished later president of Williams College, leaving the home of his father at Cornwall, Conn., a distance of some twenty-five miles. He was admitted to the bar of Berkshire County, Mass, in April, 1776, and commenced practice in Sheffield, just across the border from Connecticut, and represented that town in the Massachusetts General Court or legislature. In 1776 he removed too Great Barrington and in 1785 to Stockbridge, Mass., where he made his home for the rest of his life. He built in 1785at Stockbridge the Sedgwick House, which has remained in the family ever since, has recently been placed in the hands of trustees, two of whom are great great grandsons of the Judge and a third who is the widow of another great great grandson. The purpose of this trust as stated in the preamble is "to maintain the House which for 160 years has sheltered descendants of its founder, Judge Theodore Sedgwick; to perpetuate a family tradition and to form a continuing bond between the scattered members of the family." It is a historic Sedgwick family heirloom and contains many invaluable family possessions, notably portraits.
Up to the final break with the mother country his loyalty to the crown was unshaken. In July 1774 he acted as secretary of two meetings, one of lawyers and another of citizens, both held at Berkshire County, to formulate a practical course of peaceful resistance to British Usurpation. At the outset of the Revolutionary War he sided with the Colonies and ardently supported the cause of American Independence.
He served on the staff of General John Thomas's siege of Quebec and during the later part of that year and throughout 1777 he was commissary for the Northern Department of the Army and was active in securing and forwarding army supplies. He received many state and federal honors. He was a delegate to the convention which formed the Constitution of Massachusetts and of that which ratified the Federal Constitution; was District Attorney in the Western District of Massachusetts and later Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
He was a member of the old Continental Congress, 1785-1786; was elected to the first Federal Congress, 1789 and was returned to the Lower House for the next six sessions or until 1796. He was then chosen United States Senator for three years serving as President pro tem one session. In 1799 he was returned to the Lower House and was chosen speaker 1799-1801.
In 1802 he was appointed to the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, where he continued to serve until his death in 1813. Shortly after the adoption of the Massachusetts constitution he was counsel for Elizabeth Freeman (called Mumbet) a negro slave who had fled from her master on account of bad treatment. The court ruled that she was free, thus making the earliest application of the Massachusetts Bill of Rights that "all men are born free and equal." This decision was later upheld by the Supreme Court after Judge Sedgwick became a member.
The woman was so grateful that she became a member of the Sedgwick household for life. She took care of the children was buried in the family plot by the side of Catharine M., and her grave marked by a monument.

The following message was posted at the GenForum SedgwickForum

I used to be Henry Dwight Sedgwick III
Posted by: Henry Dwight Sedgwick Stern
Date: December 04, 1999 at 20:27:02

My mother, Helen Burroughs, was married to Henry D Sedgwick, and had 3 children: Henry(that's me),Michael,& Holly.After 6 yrs, my parents were divorced. My father later remarried Patricia Rosenwald,(subseqently getting divorced from her as well),but while married to her,had 3 more kids,(my half siblings): Rob,Nikko,& Kyra;(the actress). Incidentally, my mother remarried Philip M. Stern & THEN her last name was Stern. My father,(Henry D. Sedgwick), was absent from my life for most of my childhood, after his divorce from my mother.Consequently,as a teenager, I was officially adopted by my stepfather, Philip Stern (grandson of Julius Rosenwald, founder Sears Roebuck & a progressive philanthropist; not related to Kyra's mom I think!?).

So,you have Kyra's mother wrong.(Understandably, it is a confusing mish-mash - punctuated with divorce, remarriage,& name changing adoption). I must admit, having been a Sedgwick, I still feel like one in many ways.(Genetic psychology, I guess). I still am in touch with my "biologic" father; and really like Rob, Nikko, and Kyra.(However, you won't see me changing my name back,or get me into the Pie in Stockbridge).

My hair stood on end when I saw this bit of coincidence in the geneology: the first Henry D. Sedgwick III,(my great grandfather, known as "babbo"), was born exactly 90 yrs. before my birthday. His was 24 Sep,1861. My birthday is 24 Sep,1951. Yikes. Is this true? I have a picture with him holding me when I was a baby. No wonder he was beaming at the time. Anyway, whoever is in charge can double-check the above facts I've stated. Again, given the confusing circumstances, an easy one to goof up.

Samuel Cabot Sedgwick
died October 7, 2002. He was preceded in death by his mother, Paula Knipe. He is survived by his beloved wife, Gullermina A. Sedgwick of 27 years. She cared for him throughout his life and illness. Their son, Samuel E. Sedgwick; their daughters, Catherine T. Sedgwick and Maria P. Sedgwick; father, Cabot Sedgwick; sisters, Henrietta Barassi, Paulita Sedgwick, and Susana Sedgwick; brother, John A. Sedgwick; as well as numerous in-laws, cousins, nephews and nieces.
Samuel was born on September 1, 1949 in Bilbao, Spain. He was raised throughout many corners of the world, which gave him a great appreciation for many walks of life. He attended Syracuse school of journalism, got a B.A. in International Business at the Monterrey Institute of Foreign Language. He then spent a year at Thunderbird College before receiving his first Masters in Business Management at the UA. In 1999 he returned to the University to attain a Masters of Arts.
Sam began a career as an executive for Ford Motor Company in Detroit, Michigan, he was in charge of parts distribution in Central and South America for seven years. Then moved to Nogales, Arizona in 1982 and began his dream of ranching. Part owner, owner, and manager of three different ranches; Santo Nino, Tordillo, and Los Alisos. He was a cowboy's cowboy, Sam did most all of the ranch work himself. He also decided to educate himself on the animal and flora life of the Southwest. In 1986 he attended the School of Agricultural Science in Kansas City graduating with a degree. He used a lot of this knowledge late on during his trips to Mexico. Sam became fascinated with a little known Guarijillo tribe, lost in the western Sierra Madre. For 10 years he spent time befriending these people, learning the culture and environment. They admired him greatly and rewarded him with an exclusive opportunity to write about their society which he did extensively. Sam was a larger than life individual; he was a true man in the very best sense of the word. He aspired to all the ``great ones'' throughout history, a lineage of men that changed their environments as well as the people around them. All the different career meant nothing compared to his goal of being one such ``true man.'' He vehemently insisted on being loyal to his true nature, at any cost. Passionate towards his vision he had the courage to see it through, despite any opposition. Sam had an insatiable thirst for life that eventually killed him, never fearing the end. Whether it was being a writer, adventurer, cowboy, businessman, storyteller, teacher, friend, brother, husband, son, and father. He will be missed dearly, but his great spirit, kindness of heart, and generosity will live on.
