Genealogy of the Stimpson Family of Charlestown, Mass., and Allied Families, Charles Collyer Whittier. (Boston, 1907), 8vo, 206 pages, including a twenty-eight page index of people, places, and subjects. The Digital Edition on CD-ROM © December 2007.
This genealogy of the Stimpson (Stimson) family contains the history of Andrew Steavenson, the emigrant, and his descendants into the first decade of he twentieth century. Andrew’s early New England home was Cam-bridge, Massachusetts; the homestead of his son Andrew Stimson was at Charlestown.
In this volume will be found many prominent men, “who have occupied exalted positions, have served mankind nobly, and have left an impress upon the times in which they lived” - able statesmen, honored clergymen and enterprising merchants. Among these, perhaps the most notable is the essayist, Henry David Thoreau. However, those bearing the Stimpson name were “so few in number,” that Whittier added to the first four generations many of the descend-ants of the female lines. In these first four generations, although the daughters were numerous, only one male member married and had children: from John Stimson, born 1728, came all the remaining Stimpson descendants up to 1907. These, too, male and female, will be found in the Genealogy of the Stimpson Family
