CURTIS, Abel (I1108)
152 D. D., clergyman, author, was born Aug. 22, 1813, in Stonington, Conn. In 1835 he graduated from Yale university; and from Yale Theological seminary in 1840. He has been pastor of congregational churches in Chester, Glastonbury and Durham, Conn.; and previously was principal of Hadley and Westfield academies, Massachusetts.

He was graduated form Yale University in 1835 and from Yale Theological Seminary in 1840; he was ordained to the Congregational Ministry as pastor of the church in Chester, Conn., Dec 1 1841; he held patoral charges also at Glastonbury, Vernon and Durham, Conn.; he has been a member of the Corporation of Yale University and in 1885 received from the institution the honrary degree of D.D.; he is the author of several books on church work and Christian nurture.

ton, Conn., August 22d, 1813, the son of Enoch Stanton 
Chesebrough and Sally Sheffield, the daughter of Amos 
and Sally (Goddard) Sheffield. My father was the fifth 
in descent from William Chesebrough, who sailed from 
Cowes with Gov. John Winthrop's company in 1630, and 
was one of the founders of Boston. He was the first 
white man who made Stonington his permanent abode, 
having removed thither in the summer of 1649. My 
father's grandmother was Bridget Noyes, the wife of Dea. 
Nathan Chesebrough, and the grand-daughter of Rev. 
James Noyes, the first pastor of the first church in 
Stonington, and one of the founders of Yale College. 
His name heads the roll of its corporators. 
I have little to tell of my early days. I have been informed 
by my mother, that when the British fleet made 
its attack upon Stonington in August, 1814, she carried 
me, then a year old, in her arms, my father being absent, 
some two miles to a farm house for safety. A large quantity 
of household furniture, especially feather beds, were 
taken to the same house from the endangered village, 
and the beds were piled one upon another on the family 
bedsteads. It was given to my mother with the baby to 
sleep upon the top of one of these stacks of bedding, the 
issue of which was that the class of '35 came very near 
having been minus one of its members. Providence, 
however, so ordered it that .when the baby was picked up 
from the floor to wh1ch he had suddenly gravitated in 
the middle of the night, the breath of life was found to 
be in him, so that he not only survived the dangers to 
which he was exposed from a foreign foe, but those also 
which threatened him nearer home.
I was placed, when quite a small boy, under the tuition 
of John Kirby, an Irishman, and a graduate of Dublin 
College. At the age of fourteen I was prepared to enter 
college. But my father not feeling able to meet the 
expenses of a college course, I turned aside to begin the 
study of medicine with our village physician. I soon, 
however, left the doctor's office to become a clerk in a 
large drug store in New York. This business not proving 
congenial, I returned after a year to my previous 
position, which I retained until my entire life-plan was so 
changed that I decided to consecrate myself to the service 
of Christ in the ministry. This was in the spring of 
the year 1831. In the autumn of the next year I joined 
the Sophomore class in Yale College, and graduated 
in 1835. 
The value of the jura et privilegia of my baccalaureate, 
conferred by our revered President Day when he gracefully 
tipped his beaver to me on the stage at Commencement, 
was first practically tested in the discharge of the 
duties of Principal of Hopkins' Academy, Hadley, Mass., 
upon which I entered soon after graduation. After holding 
this position for a year, I took charge of the.academy 
at Westfield, Mass. 
I entered upon a course of study in theology at the 
seminary in New Haven in the fall of 1837, which was 
completed in 1840. After receiving a license to preach, 
there was extended to me a call to settle as pastor of the 
Congregational Church in Shrewsbury, Mass., which I 
did not deem it expedient to accept. During my novitiate, 
I spent two or three months in soliciting funds in 
behalf of indigent students in the academical department 
of Yale. The amount raised was $10,000, of which about 
two-thirds were given as scholarships of $500 each. 
In May, 1841, I was invited to supply the pulpit of the 
Congregational Church in Chester, Conn., where, on the 
1st of December following, I was ordained and installed 
as pastor. During the latter part of my ministry there 
I became greatly interested in the Bushnell controversy, 
then in progress, and my interest culminated in the prep-
aration of a series of articles for the Religious Herald 
upon the points in dispute, signed " CC." They were 
subsequently reprinted in pamphlet form as the contributions 
of " Criticus Criticorum." Doctor Bushnell, 
who was then lying under the charge of heresy, doubtless 
exaggerated their value when he declared that they " 
saved his head." In the spring of 1851, I had a severe 
attack of congestion of the brain, the result of which was 
that my very happy relations to this church and people 
were terminated on the 1st of January, 1853. 
My home was now removed to Stonington, where I 
assisted my father in mercantile occupations, and eventually 
in bringing his business to a close, he being quite advanced 
in life. In the course of a year I began to preach 
again. For a longer or a shorter time I served the 
churches in North Stonington, West Meriden and Meri- 
den Center, but finding that study and responsibility 
brought back the brain trouble, I determined to try an 
ocean voyage and an European pedestrian tour. Accordingly, 
early in 1857, I embarked in a packet ship for 
London. The long passage improved my health, and 
when I returned from my travels in December I found 
that my bodily energies were fully restored. 
In the following spring I received a call to the first 
Church of Glastonbury, Conn, and was installed there on 
the I4th of July, 1858, but my health gave way again 
after ten very active and happy years, and I was dismissed 
from my charge Nov. I2th, 1868. 
While residing in Glastonbury I wrote a book on Home 
Evangelization, which was published by the American 
Tract Society of Boston, in 1865, with an " Introduction " 
by Dr. Leonard Bacon. It had a wide circulation. 
At the time of my dismission from the church in Glastonbury, 
I was under a dark cloud. My own health was 
greatly impaired by overtaxation, my wife was an invalid 
and my second daughter was in a debilitated state from 
diphtheria. Immediately on our taking up our residence 
in Hartford, this daughter was attacked with lung fever, 
from which she never fully recovered. She passed away
to the better land, Feb. 7th, 1870, at the age of twenty- 
five. While residing in Hartford, a period of about two 
years, I received a flattering invitation to supply the pulpit 
of the Congregational Church in Jacksonville, Illinois. 
But I felt obliged for reasons of health, to decline that 
invitation, as well as a call to the Congregational Church 
in Plymouth, Conn. At length, however, I assumed the 
charge of the old church in Vernon, Conn., the duties ot 
which, not being onerous, I felt able to meet. My ministry 
there extended from February, 1871, to April, 1876, 
when I removed to Durham, where I am greatly enjoying 
my ministry with the church which had had our 
classmate Charles L. Mills for its pastor from April, 1841, 
to September, 1845. 
I was married, Nov. 16th, 1841, to Harriet, eldest 
daughter of the late George H. Chapman, Esq., of Old 
Saybrook, Conn., who was a lineal descendant of one of 
the first settlers of the town, and whose grounds have 
been in possession of the family about two hundred and 
fifty years. With respect to the qualities of my wife, I 
need only to say that I regard it as the misfortune of my 
classmates that, with seven or eight exceptions, thev have 
never made her acquaintance. I have had three children, 
two daughters and a son, all born in Chester. My eldest 
daughter, Sarah Lucia, born August 21st, 1842, was married 
in Glastonbury, Dec. 2d, 1863, to Capt. Henry R. 
Jones, then in the U. S. Veteran Reserve Corps. He held 
his command till the close of the war, and was then 
appointed a first lieutenant in the First Regiment U. S. 
Infantry. On account of the effects of a wound received 
at Antietam, he was, not long since, honorably retired 
from the service. They are residing in New Hartford 
and have four daughters, a son having died. My second 
daughter, Hattie Chapman, born Jan. 1st, 1845, died in 
Hartford, Feb. 7, 1870. My son, Sheffield, born July 16th, 
1847, was married Oct. I4th, 1879, to Julia, daughter of 
Albert G. Clark, Esq., of Toledo, Ohio, and is now in 
business in St. Louis. He has no children. 
As to literary productions which have found their way
into print, in addition to those already referred to, there 
is little or nothing worthy of mention. A sermon on " 
Christian Politics," a few papers prepared by appointment 
of the General Association, and the General Conference 
of Connecticut, and several articles contributed to 
the New Englander, are all that need be specified. 
I was elected a member of the Corporation of Yale 
College in 1875, being the fourth pastor of this First 
Church of Durham who has received this honor. The 
names of the others are, Rev. Nathaniel Chauncey, in 
1746; Rev. Doct. Elizur Goodrich, in 1770; and Rev. 
Doct. David Smith, in 1821. 
As regards my plans for the future, they are simply 
these: to continue my ministerial work, if the Lord will, 
till I am seventy years old, and then to serve my generation 
as best I may, until I fall on sleep. My days seem 
brightening as I grow older, and my hope is, that through 
the Divine mercy no dark clouds will obscure them, but 
that they may be eventually absorbed into the day that 
never declines.

153 Daniel Axtell (1748-1826) served as private in Capt. John Miller's company, 1st battalion, Washington County, Pennsylvania militia. He was born in Massachusetts; died in Mercer County, Pa. AXTELL, Daniel (I2193)
154 DANIEL MCLAREN MILLER, м. о. зз°. 
A useful life, full of years and good works has ended upon earth. 
A kind thoughtful, amiable, honest, useful life has closed and another 
spirit, genial and forgiving has been released from its earthly tenement 
and has taken its flight to forever be at home with God, and another 
memory fragrant with deeds of Charity and loving kindness is our inheritance. 
Doctor MILLER as he was familiarly known for fifty years at his 
home in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, did much that will remain with suffering 
humanity as a pleasant memory. He did the duties of life 
which to him was a panacea for all his sorrows, not sitting down in 
apathy or indifference while the call of the widow and orphan was 
heard, but he toiled on faithfully almost to the end, never wearied with 
helping others. 
One of the traits of character possessed by Doctor Miller was his 
modesty and gentleness and his dislike for show and glamour with no 
desire to be heard for his much speaking, and a grateful people in the 
community where he practiced his profession for so many years with 
one accord to acclaim that he was a friend of all peoples, that his 
highest ideal in life was to " feed the hungry, clothe the naked and 
bind up the wounds of the afflicted." 
Doctor MILLER was born in New York City May 18, 1838, and died 
at the family home in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, April 25, 1912. He 
was a son of Charles S. and Vashti McLaren Miller and received his 
education in Columbia College, graduating from the Medical department 
in the year 1858 and very soon thereafter he started out for the 
far west to make his entrance into the professional world, establishing 
himself in his chosen profession in Hartland, Wisconsin, within the 
year following his graduation. 
At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 he offered his services 
to the United States Government and enlisted in the twenty-eighth Wisconsin 
Infantry as Surgeon and served in that capacity until the close 
of the war in 1865 when he was mustered out of service and located at 
Oconomowoc where after fifty years of uninterrupted service to humanity 
answering professional calls at all hours of the day and night, 
riding through rain and storm as well as fair weather he met his 
engagements promptly, he served the poor as well as the rich, without 
distinction. After fifty long years of faithful attention to duty his 
physical body was so weakened by years of labor he has gone to rest,
his tired eyes closed in that profound sleep which knows no waking. 
Sleep on good Doctor, you have earned the promised eternal rest. 
He was married in 1850 to Mary G. Remington who together with 
two sons. Doctor Thomas and Charles S. Miller, survive. 
Doctor MILLER had a long and distinguished Masonic career beginning 
with the Entered Apprentice Degree in Bark River, now Hartland 
Lodge No. 122, in the year I860. After receiving the Master Masons 
Degree he affiliated with Ellsworth Lodge No. 133, located at Ocono- 
mowoc, now known and recorded as Oconomowoc Lodge No. 42 
and was a member at the time of his death. He was Worshipful 
Master in the years 1883, '85, '86, '87. '88, '89, '92, '94, '96, '97 and 1902. 
altogether eleven years. In the year 1901 he was elected Deputy Grand 
Master of the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin and in 1902 was elected 
Grand Master, serving one year. He was a charter member of the 
Order of the Eastern Star and served as Patron for two years. 
Charter member of Oconomowoc Chapter R. A. M. organized in 1871 
and served as High Priest in 1879, '80, '81, '99, 1900, 1901 and 1902; 
received the Order of Knighthood in Wisconsin Commandery No. 1, K. T., 
a Charter Member of St. John's Commandery No. 13, (now 
merged with Wisconsin No. 1) and later a Charter Member of Olivet 
Commandery No. 18, located at Watertown, where he served as Commander 
in 1S96, '97, '98, and 99 Received the Degrees in Wisconsin 
Consistory A. A. S R. and co-ordinate bodies in 1878, and on Septem- 
bei 20, 1892, he was crowned an Honorary Member of the Supreme 
Council Thirty-third Degree Northern Masonic Jurisdiction. Space 
will not admit of a further record of minor offices held by this good 
Brother so we mention only the highest positions. 
Thus ends the record upon earth of a devoted Craftsman, a skilled 
physician and a modest Christian gentleman—congenial, capable and 
worthy. His example is worthy of emulation. 
Fraternally submitted, 


Bro. Daniel McLaren Miller. M.W. Past Grand Master of the Grand
Lodge of Wisconsin died April 25, 1912, at the age of seventy-six years.
He was elected M.W. Grand Master of Wisconsin in 1902. On the
breaking out of the Civil war, he, being a physician by profession, en-
listed as a surgeon in the 28th Wisconsin Volunteers, and served to
the end of the war, when he returned to Wisconsin, resumed the prac-
tice of his profession, and continued to follow it till the end of his
earthly care'er.

Paul Rowe — Football
Paul “Pop” Rowe came out of Victoria as an all-around outstanding athlete to become one of the greatest stars for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). A track ace for Archie McKinnon’s famed Flying "Y" Club, Rowe set city school records and was a gifted boxer. As a teen, his prowess on the rugby pitch was such that he made the Crimson Tide, the Island rep side, when it competed against the New Zealand All Blacks. His talent earned him a scholarship in 1937 to play football for the University of Oregon Ducks. By his sophomore season, he had made All-American honourable mention and immediately turned professional with the Calgary Broncs of the Western Football League. Rowe was an immediate hit, but football was interrupted by his service in WWII. After the war, he returned to football with the Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. He captained the team to its first-ever Grey Cup. Affectionately known by fans, family and friends alike by his nickname “Pappy”, Paul Rowe is considered one of the best, most bruising, driving fullbacks in CFL history. Rowe was a five-time Western Conference all-star and two-time Dryburgh Award winner as the conference’s leading scorer. He is a member of the CFL Hall of Fame and the Greater Victoria, BC and Canadian Sports Halls of Fame.

183 Eli and Jane McFarland Frazier Family


Eli Frazier was second child and second son of William and Susannah Woodward Frazier. He was born 5/19/1786 in Randolph County, North Carolina. He was a birthright Quaker as recorded at Center Monthly Meeting in Guilford County, North Carolina. We do not know the parentage of his wife Jane. We only know her name from the 1884 History of Henry County, Indiana where she is mentioned in the biography of their son James H. Frazier.

Eli was transferred with his parents to Lost Creek Monthly Meeting in Tennessee in the early 1790's. He was dismissed from Lost Creek Monthly Meeting on 4/18/1810 for fighting, and we do not find him further in Quaker records. By 1820 he was married to Jane McFarland and was living in Wayne County, Indiana, where they are found in the 1820 census. The youngest child we know of was born in 1813. We have been unable to locate a marriage record in Tennessee, Ohio, or Indiana. The Henry County Indiana History tells us they had six sons and two daughters. Additional information is given in A Discourse on the Thornburgs in a brief bio which lists children: William. James H., Eli, Hatty, Susannah, and Abraham. So far we have been able to verify children: Esther (born about 1813, Ohio); Susannah (born about 1814, Ohio); William (born about 1818, Indiana); and James H. born 11/14/1829, Wayne County, Indiana.

The Thornburg Genealogy gives a death date for Eli of 9/18/1831 in Henry County, Indiana. The Henry County History also gives his death as 1831 and additionally gives a death date of 1845 for Jane in Henry County. We are not sure that Jane's death date is correct as we found the following in the 1850 census in Liberty Township in Henry County: Jane Frazier, 61, born Pa; Elizabeth, 21, born In; Abram, 19, born In. The age of Jane is approximately correct (born 1789) to be wife of Eli Frazier, but the daughter Elizabeth does not fit well into the family unless she was Hatty (at present we believe Hatty was Esther). The Frazier family was numerous and this could easily be another Jane Frazier. If anyone can shed light on this we would appreciate hearing from them.

William and Eliza Bundy Frazier
Eli and Jane's son, William Frazier, was a farmer living in Henry County, age 32, born Indiana when the 1850 census was taken. He had wife Eliza, born about 1818 in Ohio. They had children Hiram B. Frazier, born about 1837; Mary Jane Frazier, born about 1844; Josiah Frazier, born about 1846, and James Taylor Frazier, born about 1848; all born Indiana. William Frazier married Eliza M. Bundy on 7/28/1836 in Henry County.

James H. and Nancy Harvey Frazier
Eli and Jane's son, James H. Frazier, is also found in Henry County, Indiana in 1850. In addition there is information on his family in A Discourse on the Thornburg Family. He married Nancy Harvey, daughter of James and Margaret Canady Harvey, on November 12, 1842 in Henry County, Indiana. This marriage united two Thornbrough lines: James being descended from Hannah Thornbrough, wife of Abraham Woodward, and Nancy being descended from Margaret Thornbrough, sister of Hannah Thornbrough, who married John Canady. There is also information on the family of James H. and Nancy Harvey Frazier in the History of Henry County, Indiana, 1884. The Henry County History, the Thornburg genealogy, and the census records are all in agreement. James and Nancy Harvey Frazier had children: Joel Frazier, born about 1844; Miles Frazier; about 1846; Eli W. Frazier, about 1848; William Henry Frazier; Margaret A. Frazier, married F. Allender; Sarah Jane Frazier, m S. H. Brown; Mary Ann Frazier; Abraham Lincoln Frazier, born 5/3/1863, married Eldora Brown; Luette Frazier.

Susannah Frazier Millikan
Eli and Jane's daughter, Susannah Frazier, married William Millikan, son of Eli and Mary Kersey Millikan, on 12/8/1842 in Henry County, Indiana, as his third wife. (Eli Millikan was son of William Millikan, Jr., and grandson of the William Millikan whose history is given on our Millikan page). William Millikan had a total of 13 children by four wives. His first wife was Charity Canady m. 5/13/1830; second Mary Russell m. 7/9/1840; third Susannah m. 10/8/1842; and after Susannah's death 7/7/1852 he married Mary Williams in 1856. When the Hazzard's History of Henry County Ind 1822-1906 was written there were nine children living: John, Charles, Alameda, Esther, Eli F, Thomas K, William M, Elnora, and Rebecca J. We know from Quaker records that John and Charles were children of Charity, as well as three others, Mary, Emily, and Sarah Ellen. We also know from birthdates that Eli F. (born 8/17/1843) and Thomas K. Millikan (born 6/26/1846) were children of Susannah Frazier Millikan. The 1850 census is of additional help in apportioning the children. William & Susannah Frazier Millikan are found in Blue River Township, Henry County: William Millikan, 45, real estate $3500, occupation not given (probably farmer), born NC; Susanna, 36, born Ohio; John, 20, Oh; Charles, 18, Oh; Almeda, 12, Ind; Esther, 9, In; Eli F., 7, In; Thomas K., 4, In; Rebecca J., 1. By their birthdates we can assume that John, Charles and Almeda, were children of Charity (who died 10/3/1839); Esther was daughter of Mary Russell who died 1/20/1842; and Eli F; Thomas K., and Rebecca J., were daughters of Susanna per the 1850 census. This leaves only Elnora and William M. who may have been later children of Susannah (when time permits we will check the 1860 census). As far as we know there were no children by Mary Williams (but not proven).

Hazzard's History of Henry County gives us information on two of Susannah and William Millikan's children: Eli and Thomas.

William and Susannah's son, Eli F. Millikan, served in Co C of the 36th Indiana Infantry from 8/1861 to 9/1864. He married Elizabeth Harvey, daughter of Joel and Sarah Downs Harvey, on 11/22/1866 in Henry County. They had children Verney, Harvey, Laura, Sallie, and Jennie.

William and Susannah's son Thomas K. Millikan married Myra F. Rayle, daughter of Zadock and Delilah Hunt Rayle on 11/18/1869 in Henry County. They had a child Ora E. Millikan.

Esther Frazier Russell
From another Frazier researcher we believe Esther to be the daughter "Hatty" referred to in the Thornburg genealogy. Esther Frazier was born about 1813 in Ohio and married Calvin Russell on 6/21/1832 in Henry County, Indiana. He died before 1850 and Esther is found as a widow in the 1850 census in Henry County, Prairie Township, #18: Esther Russell, 37, born Ohio: Matilda, 16, born In; Eli F., 14, born In; Hannah E., 10, In; John R., 4, In; Susanna Jane, 4, In; Calvin, 2, In. The naming of first son as Eli Frazier Russell seems the best indication that she is indeed a daughter of our Eli Frazier.

188 Emil C. Pors, who has long been a prominent figure in Marshfield's legal pro-
fession, was born March 14, 1860, at Port Washington, Wis., son of William A.
and Ida (Heinemann) Pors, The father was born in Prussia, Nov. 17, 1827, and
the mother in Germany, July 6, 1838. The father came to America in 1849, com-
ing direct to Wisconsin; the mother coming from Germany ten years later, and
stopping with her brother in New York City. They were married in New York
March 22, 1859. William A. Pors previously had studied law in New England,
and had been admitted to the New Hampshire Bar in 1853. After his marriage
he returned to Port Washington, was admitted to the bar there, and entered the
practice of law, remaining in Port Washington until 1890. He died in Marshfield
May 24, 1910, having practiced law here with his son, the subject of this sketch,
since removing from Port Washington. The son, Emil, an only child, after attending school in Port Washington and the College of the Sacred Heart, at Water-
town, Wis., began the study of law, first in his father's office and later in the office
of Weisbrod and Harshaw, of Oshkosh, Wis. He was admitted to the Wisconsin
Bar March 24, 1881. After following his profession one year in St. Paul, Minn.,
and three years in West Bend, Wis., he came to Marshfield, Sept. 6, 1886, and
entered into partnership with John F. Cole. A year later he opened an office of
his own in Marshfield. In the fire of 1887 his office was destroyed, with all his
equipment. Undaunted, he opened another in a small shanty in the street, quar-
ters in sharp contrast to the beautiful suite he now occupies in the Marshfield
State Bank building. He was married June 27, 1888, to Hattie E. Miller, a daugh-
ter of Charles H. and Martha E. (Wightman) Miller, of West Bend, Wis., in which
city Mrs. Pors was born Jan. 9, 1867. Her father was born in Germany and her
mother in the United States. Her family came west from New York at an early
day, settling first at Ann Arbor, Mich., and coming to Wisconsin in territorial
days. Her grandfather Wightman cleared the land on which Ann Arbor Univer-
sity now stands. Neither of her parents are now surviving. Three children were
born to Mr. and Mrs. Pors: Millie, April 26, 1889, who only lived four years; and
William E. and Charles M., twins, born April 19, 1891. Both the boys are gradu-
ates of the Marshfield High School. William graduated in law from the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin, class of 1917, and is now district attorney for Washburn County,
Wis. In the World War he served 17 months in France as a lieutenant in the 32nd
Division. He was married in June, 1921, to Dolores Curran; they have a daughter,
Martha Elizabeth. They reside at Shell Lake, Washburn County, Wis. Charles,
after receiving his degree in letters and science from Lawrence College at Appleton,
Wis., taught school for two years at Sparta, Wis. Having read law in his father's
office, he was admitted to the Wisconsin bar April 5, 1918, and entered into part-
nership with his father. Though rejected for oversea service in the World War,
he served his country as sergeant in the Air-Craft Production branch, being sta-
tioned in Chicago. He was married June 2, 1919, to Miss Anne Person, born
June 14, 1897, at Hastings, Minn., a daughter of A. J. and Christine Person, now
of Sparta, Wis. They have a daughter, Christine Harriet. He has a comfortable
home at 210 W. Sixth St., Marshfield. He is a member of the Masonic Order and
the B. P. 0. E., both of Marshfield. The father, Mr. Emil Pors, served as district
attorney of Wood County for two terms, as county judge for one term, and as city
attorney for Marshfield for several years. During the World War he was county
food administrator, and was also prominent in Liberty Loan campaigns, being
chairman for the northern half of Wood County. He is independent in politics.
The family are affiliated with the Episcopal Church. Mr. Pors is a stockholder in
the First National Bank, and owns a beautiful home at 308 East Second Street,
where he resides with his wife and widowed mother.
