In Reply to: Benjamin Orcutt & John Orcutt of Butternuts, Otsego, NY by William Kerr of 959

Don't take everything to be gospel, although as correct as has been possible to ascertain at this time. I am including a couple of generations for each of the men you asked about. John's information will be the next post.

I am interested in both Benajah and John's families, and would like to hear from anyone that has anything to add, or corrections.
Sincerely
Joel Thomas Orcutt

History of Fountain County, Indiana by H. W. Beckwith,1881 by H.H. Hill and N. Iddings:
Page 366
"Josiah L. Orcutt, deceased, Rob Roy, was born in Onondaga county, New York, July 25, 1820. His grandfather Orcutt was a soldier of the revolution. His father died when he was nine years old, and he enjoyed considerable freedom; he was reared to work on a farm, but neglected his education. He remedied this defect by going to school after he became of age. In 1847 he came to Fountain county, and on the 11th of October of the following year married Hannah J. Crawford, daughter of Dr. Crawford. She was born September 22, 1828. Her father emigrated from Warren county, Ohio, and settled first on
Bear creek in this township, a few years, finally removing about 1835 to the place where his widow at present lives, and where he died September 29, 1847; aged forty-four years. Her mother's name before marriage was Elizabeth Cline. Mr. and Mrs. Orcutt had eight children, as follows: Sarah E. (dead),
Laura A. (dead), Theodore C. (dead),Florence E. (dead), John L., Simon J., Luella, and Lydia. Mrs. Orcutt was converted at the age of neneteen and united with the Presbyterian church, of which she was a member twenty-six years. At last, the distance being so great to Rob Roy, where she worshiped,
and a Methodist society having been organized near her home, she withdrew from the former church and joined the latter. This was about six yers ago. Her husband died of lung fever February 1, 1873. He was a reading, intelligent man. The family have eighty acres of land where they live, valued at $3,500, and eighty-seven acres in Iroquois county, Illinois, worth $2,500."

E-mail from Bert Orcutt, great grandson Josiah Orcutt, to Joel Orcutt, Oct., 2002;
"Josiah L. Orcutt - b. 25 Jul 1820 in Onondago County,NY. Married 11 Oct 1848 to Hannah Jane Crawford in Fountain County, IN. He d. 01 Feb 1873 in Rob Roy, Fountain County, IN. Josiah.. was a farmer, and at the time of his death owned 80 acres in Fountain Co, IN and 87 acres in Iroquois Co, IL."

FUNERAL OF AMIABLE CLARK-MASONIC CEREMONIES- The funeral services of the late Amiable Clark took place yesterday, with Masonic ceremonies. Mr. Clark was 83 years of age, had been 60 years a Mason, and was at the time of his death the oldest member of the fraternity in Oswego. He was a man of estimable character, a good citizen and excellent member of society. He formerly took quite an active interest and part in the city politics, but owing to the advance of age, had not mingled much in political affairs for a few years past.

At one o'clock yesterday afternoon the various Lodges met with Oswego City Lodge at their rooms and with the 48th Regiment Band, proceeded to the residence of their late brother. After the usual ceremonies at the house, the vast procession moved toward Riverside Cemetery. It is estimated that there were over two hundred Masons in the procession, which is said to have been the largest ever seen in this city. The line of wagons was immense.

The ceremonies at the grave were impressively conducted, P. M. W. G. Robinson acting as Orator, Rev. S. S. N. Greely as Chaplain. The bearers were E. P. Burt, M. L. Marshall, Robt Oliver, Thomas Moore, Edwin W. Clark, P. Boyer.

At a meeting of Oswego Lodge No. 127 held at their rooms Sept. 3rd, 1869, the following preamble and resolutions:

Whereas, It has pleased the Great Disposer of all events to remove from the earth our venerable brother Amiable Clark: therefore,

Resolved, That we recognize and bow to the sovereign will-looking to the same hand that appoints for man his lot, in its joys to make it joyful in Him, and in its trials to give us support and consolation.

Resolved, That we recognize the Divine mercy that granted the deceased, in an honorable, useful and peaceful life, so long to live, reaching not only man's allotted period of three score years and ten, but more than four score years witnessing the wonderful events of a wonderful period in the progress of the race and the welfare of the world, through the advancement of science, art and the blessed light of revealed Christianity, teaching love to God and good will to man.

Resolved, That in the removal of another of the small and diminishing number of the aged men who have had part in the progress of our city from its early days, we are called upon to cherish the memory of the departed ones, and honor the few yet remaining, as those who with tireless hand and courageous hearts bore the burden and heat of day, and saw a prosperous town grow out from the wilderness, and from a people few in numbers a strong city.

Resolved, That the sympathies of Oswego Lodge, and of the fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons of the city, are tendered to the relatives and friends of our departed brother, Their grief is ours in the loss of one who, for more than half a century, had walked worthily among us, endeavoring to adorn the principle he professed "in the light of the central light," and by the square of virtue: and so may they and we, copying day by day the plans drawn for us on the tressle-board of a divine architecture, fulfill our life-work, and be found at last as polished ashlers, meet for the Eternal temple.
