To SLAHS (Mike Reilly) Wed, 9 Mar 2005 07:33:40 EST- Thank you so much in responding. The following information was received from Bob Drinkwater with: http://www.gravestonestudies.org/markers.htm.
1st I didn't know where he was born or where he died till your communication.
My ggggrandmother was Samuel and his first wife Anna Wood's daughter. She was Caroline born in 1810, They also had a son Samuel born in 1814 according to what I read in Lisbon records. Caroline married Wm Mason Richards from Hartford CT in 1830 in Belchertown. Caroline and Wm had one child Fannie Ann born 1835. They settled eventually in Berlin Wisconsin. Wm was a minister in the Berlin/Green Lake area. They are buried in Berlin. Fannie married Martin Luther Kimball who was a Wisconsin state senator in 1860. They had several children (one being my grandfather). Samuel's second wife was Lucinda. I believe the information you sent me had Lucinda first and Anna second. If you would like further information please let me know. This was exciting information for me. Valarie

In the Waukesha Freeman newspaper dated, October 28, 1915 - a story "The Pewaukee of Days Gone By", written by Alex Caldwell appeared. An excerpt reads, "This fugitive slave law compelled the officers of the free states to arrest and hold every negro found therein without a pass. A route was mapped out across the Northern states for those runaway slaves to follow. This route was called the "underground railroad". Two stations on this railroad were established in this neighborhood, one by Deacon Clinton in the southern part of the town of Pewaukee, and one by Samuel Daugherty on the farm now owned by Ike Billings. The purpose of these stations was to secrete and aid the fugitive and furnish him transportation with horse and wagon to the next station. I remember one instance when a fugitive slave was secreted at Samuel Daugherty's, waiting for an opportunity to push further north. Before the fugitive left, Mr. Daugherty saw a carriage coming across the flat, and suspected it was officers in search of the negro, and sure enough it was. The negro was hustled out of the house and hid in the cornfield. The officers came in and searched the house, but went away without their man. After dark that night, Mr. Daugherty took his horse and buggy and carried his man to some other station."
A later Waukesha Freeman newspaper
article dated, December 13, 1933, "Historical Society to Honor Lyman
Goodnow", another excerpt further explains the above story.
"In the summer of 1842, Caroline Quarrells, a young octoroon slave who
had escaped from St. Louis, reached Milwaukee, where slave hunters soon
appeared, offering a large reward for her apprehension. Sheltered at the
home of Samuel Brown, he soon took her for safety to the farm of Deacon
Samuel Daugherty, north of Pewaukee. After this refuge was deemed unsafe,
she was taken to Deacon Edmund Clinton at Prairieville [Waukesha], and then
to to the house of Deacon Allen Clinton two miles northwest."...

Notes for SAMUEL DAUGHERTY:
In the spring and summer of 1837, James Weaver, who now lives at Sussex; George Elliott, Edward Smith, Nathan Peso and Samuel Dougherty came with their families and settled here, making for themselves permanent homes.
According to the town records, the first election was held April 5, 1842, at the stone schoolhouse on Section 35, when Samuel Dougherty was chosen Moderator, and David Bonham, and Lucius Botsford, Side Supervisors. David Bonham was also elected Clerk; James Weaver, Treasurer; R. Blount, Assessor; George Comstock, Collector; D. Bonham, Ed Smith and School Commissioners; E. W. Fowler and Thomas Redford, Constables; John Weaver, Sealer of Weights and Measures; A. A. Redford, Samuel Dougherty, D. Bonham and William Weaver, Overseers of Highways; A. A. Redford, William B. Caldwell and William Weaver, Fence Viewers. The whole number of votes did not exceed twenty.
The same summer (of 1837), old Mr. Doughtery [Daughtery] and old Mr. Peero came and made their claims about three miles west of us, and Mr. Doughtery built a log house and moved his family into it in a short time...
1840 Wisconsin Federal Census lists Samuel Daugherty in Town of Lisbon, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Territory.
That summer of 1841 the stone school-house was built in School District No. 1, the first school-house that was built in Lisbon. It was a small structure when first built, but in later years it was remodeled and made more commodious. Mr. Phineas Bissel was the first teacher in the new school-house, and was succeeded by Miss Minerva Bissel. Previous to this there had been several terms of school taught by Miss Anna Daugherty in the same small cabin, in which the first school was taught by your correspondent, the cabin having been fitted up for a school room, after we moved into a more commodious one in close proximity to it which was about the same thing or nearly so, as having it in our house. But we put up with it as good grace as we possibly could, for the sake of having a school for our own and our neighbor's children.
James Clark maintained extensive exchange relationships with several individuals through the years, including the silversmith, Daniel Haines, for whom he made and repaired clock cases; the Brookfield and Worcester Iron Foundry, for whom he carved stove patterns; and, interestingly, with a stone carver from Belchertown named Samuel Daugherty, from whom he regularly received in trade pairs of gravestones, which he provided to deceased families to accompany the coffins he so often was called to fashion. James Abbott and others carted wood to the Clark shop, drawing the raw materials especially from the towns of Dana, Templeton, and Spencer—even from the mill of Parley Williams of Hubbardston, then extensively engaged in trade with his neighbor Emerson Bixby, whose house and story are now incorporated into the living history interpretation at Old Sturbridge Village.
