Joseph J. Devine 'What Graduation means to the Graduate' was Mr. Devine's subject. Joe is a modest unassuming young man and to him a graduation does not mean that there is nothing more to learn. His oration showed careful preparation and was well received by every one. We predict that this diploma will not be the last that Joe Devine will receive. He is a power, physically and mentally. His home is in Van Buren township and he is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Devine.

WARD Samuel (I4272) [Male] b. ABT 1766 Hanham, Gloucestershire, England - d. 24 APR 1786 Gloucestershie, England

12th December 1786

Joseph Fry, George Fry and Samuel Ward of Bitton were committed to Gloucester Gaol by Sir William Codrington, of Doddington, charged with "breaking open (in the night time) the house of Francis Williams and stealing therefrom about £7 in cash, a silver ring, a crown piece and other things, which burglary they have confessed and also charged on suspicion of breaking open the house of Daniel Gibbs, which they have also confessed."

16th April 1787

Nineteen years old Joseph Fry and Samuel Ward, aged 20, lay fettered in Gloucester Gaol under sentence of death. Said the Gloucester Journal:

"They are part of the Cock Road Gang, formerly headed by the noted Cayford who was hanged at Oxford. There are twelve more of this gang left.

They hold the neighbourhood in so much dread that people there are accustomed to hand over annual bounty of 10s 6d or 5s 0d to avoid their felonious attentions. In the hut where dwelt the family of the Frys, a cave was discovered which was entered by a trap door and here the father used to conceal the sons when any search was made for them."

This protection racket scam (also quoted in Bristol Gazette] was quite different from the original indictment which, as we have seen, was burglary at the premises of Messrs Williams and Gibbs. Perhaps these two householders had bravely declined to pay their "insurance ~ The Gloucester Journal report is remarkable in several ways. It gave birth to the legend of "The Cock Road Gang" which endured through necessarily changing, though never formal, membership all the way up to the 1850?s.

There had been groups in Kingswood certainly since the beginning of the 18th century, some criminal, some engaging in political protest and the two are often confused, but this is the first time, as far as I am aware, that a collective name was coined, and I believe it was conjured by our reporter himself as ginger to his story. Secondly, he goes on, sensationally, to say that the execution of Fry and Yard ? there was evidently no hope of a reprieve ? would make the number of persons from the parish of Bitton who had died on the gallows within the last three years up to ten.

The "ten within three years~ quotation, unattributed, but used by both Ellacombe (History of Bitton) and Braine, (History of Kingswood Forest) is dutifully trotted out every time any material is published on the subject of criminality at Kingswood, the majority of which crimes, I need not point out, would rate hardly a mention- in modern times. I would be grateful indeed if anybody can supply the ten names.

Of the local men who had been executed within the previous three years, I know only James Bryant, 1783, George Ward & Benjamin Webb, 1784, who together with Joseph Fry and Samuel Ward make five. Kitley and Blancher were sentenced in 1783, but Kitley died in gaol of natural causes and Blancher was reprieved. Stallard?s execution was outside the time limit, and Mangotsfield is not Bitton. John Jenkins had not yet been hanged and in any case cannot have been known to the Gloucester Journal?s reporter.

Reverend Henry Ellacombe, vicar of Bitton, from scribbled notes left in his "manuscripts", evidently agonised over the infamous ten and failed to solve the mystery, yet could not resist including the newspaper?s exciting version in his ·History without coming clean about his doubts.

It has to be remembered that Ellacombe?s notes are not contemporaneous with the newspaper report and were made more than thirty years later. He did not become curate of Bitton until 1817 and was not born locally. His evidence is from the memories of his parishioners, which like all our memories are faulty and selective. The remembrance that Webb or Kayford?s son had only one arm is typical. The jottings read:

"George Dagger alias Ward (crossed out)

John Ward hanged with Jack Dagger alias Benjamin Kayford for robbing at Mr Walker?s new budget at Glos.

Benjamin Webb or Kayford (father of one arm men). George Ward or Dagger Joseph Fry a cram hand at Glos. George Fry Samuel Dagger and Jack Toby for robbing at Glos. Whiting."

If these are counted separately they do indeed make ten persons. However, the use of numerous aliases seem to mean that some of the men were counted twice if this is taken as the source. For instance, Benjamin Webb and Benjamin Kayford, the noted Cayford, hanged at Oxford" of the newspaper report are apparently the same man. All the Wards seem to have had the nickname "Dagger" as far back as 1781 and it is possible that "Samuel Dagger and Jack Toby" refer to John Ward alias Jack Dagger, and John Read, alias Toby, indeed hanged at Gloucester for robbery. John and George Ward have been totally confused.

George Fry, brother of Joseph, despite being listed appears to have been acquitted of the burglary and freed. He may ironically, have been the same George Fry, killed in a pit at Mangotsfield in 1789. It is worth noting that Ellacombe records Joseph Fry was "a scram hand" or a left handed person. Left handedness (eg sinister!) was long considered to denote criminal tendencies, though undoubtedly all the rest were right handed which surely defeats any scientific theory on the subject!

Mark Whiting, who appears in Ellacombe?s Jottings has no place amongst the rest. His tragedy was In a different era, forty years later.

Our imaginative newspaper hack would have been pleased to know that brains were being racked concerning his excesses two centuries after his story first appeared. There is just one more possibility that he was not an embroiderer at all. The original report specifies "persons" which means both men and women. Could the remainder of Bitton?s infamous ten have been women? Desperate "criminals" driven perhaps to infanticide by the mores of the times like those in 1794? Alas in 1786 there is no coroner?s book to help us.

The next week our reporter is still in deepest purple, covering the mass execution of no less than nine men, (first names omitted): Crew, Chapman, already wearing his shroud, Matthews and Alloway in the first cart and in the second Whittick, Fry, Ward, Russ and Davis, It was thought that more than 10,000 people from about twenty miles around witnessed the grotesquerie at the scaffold when the two carts were set in motion simultaneously and whereupon the poor wretches fell, the whole crowd seemed with one content to utter a groan of commiseration. Just as the malefactors were turned off, two strong flashes of lightning burst from a cloud attended by thunder.

JONES Edith Newbold (I4373) [Female] b. 1862 - d. 1937

The second graders paused in our library’s genealogy research area before the photo of Frederic W. Rhinelander. That distinguished gentleman sported a pair of magnificent gray mutton-chop sideburns, a 19th century style so named because their shape – narrow near the ears and broadly rounded at the jaw line – were thought to resemble meat chops.

Our city was named after this man, I explained to the class. He was the president of a company building a new railroad from Milwaukee to Lake Superior. Our town was called Pelican Rapids then, but when Mr. Rhinelander agreed to connect us to his railroad, it was renamed to honor him.

The children looked suitably impressed. “Wow, look at those whiskers, “one of them said. “Just think of the mess if he’d tried to eat a double cheese pizza!”

In the local history book “Our First Hundred Years,” author T.V.Olsen wrote, “It’s believed that Webster Brown first suggested that the village be named for Frederick William Rhinelander, president of the Milwaukee, Lake Shore and Western Railway. Many years later Walter Brown explained that Mr. Rhinelander was a very wealthy man, and the boys thought that if the town were named after him, he might take some interest in it and help develop it. But he didn’t. He sold the line to the Chicago and Northwestern about ten years later, and disposed of his interests in the West entirely.’”

When the first train arrived here on November 9, 1882 it was mainly because the Brown Brothers Lumber Company had contributed half its considerable timber acreage to seal the bargain. No doubt that impressed F.W. Rhinelander more than the naming rights. He never visited “his” town. Park Avenue was a planet apart from Rhinelander’s simple frame buildings, muddy streets, and future county court house site that was planted in potatoes the year the railroad came to town.

Mr. Rhinelander of New York City came from a long line of English and Dutch merchants, bankers and lawyers renowned for their business enterprise and prominence among old money aristocracy. The Brown brothers might have been surprised to learn he once considered himself “poor” by comparison to the other families in his circle.

Some forty years earlier, Rhinelander’s immediate family had suffered “diminished circumstances” when his father, who preferred literature to his account books, died young leaving management of the family properties to his brother. For a time, F.W.’s uncle made himself rich at the expense of his widowed sister-in-law and her children.

F.W.’s oldest sister, Lucretia, would later recount her shame at appearing at her coming-out ball in 1842 dressed in a homemade white tarlatan gown and enduring the martyrdom of dancing on toes pinched into her mother’s hand-me-down satin slippers.

Two years later Lucretia was adorning herself in furs, feathers and satin bonnets from Paris as Mrs. George Frederic Jones, having married well despite being one of “the poor Rhinelander girls.” That particular Jones family actually spawned the phrase “keeping up with the Joneses” by kicking off a flurry of mansion building up and down the Hudson River in the years immediately before the Civil War.

Lucretia and George Frederic Jones produced three children; Frederic, Harry and Edith. The two brothers were 16 and 11 years old when Edith Newbold Jones was born in 1862. Lucretia’s favorite sister Mary Elizabeth Rhinelander and her husband Thomas H. Newbold were sponsors at the baby girl’s christening.

F.W. Rhinelander was named Edith’s godfather. The pair became especially close after her father’s death in 1882, the same year that folks in the Wisconsin wilderness who needed a railroad named their town for Uncle Fred.

On April 29, 1885, Edith emerged from her mother’s West Twenty-fifth Street house and crossed the street to Trinity Chapel on the arm of F.W. Rhinelander. There she wed Edward R. “Teddy” Wharton, a friend of her brother Harry who was thirteen years her senior.

Edith Newbold Jones Wharton had, in acquiring a socially acceptable husband, achieved a woman’s highest aspiration according to the dictates of the patriarchal Old New York Society. With Teddy at her side, Edith became immersed even more deeply in a culture noted for its manners, taste, snobbishness, and long list of social do's and don’ts. But she refused to drown, choosing instead to swim against the current.

Edith Wharton was a keen observer, a unique storyteller and a talented writer. First published in 1890, her satirical fiction exposed the pretentiousness and emptiness of New York’s changing aristocracy. Wharton became the student and friend of Henry James who, when she sent him a letter bemoaning her unhappy marriage, replied: "Keep making the movements of life."

She won critical acclaim both at home and in Europe as “the Jane Austin of America” with the publication of “Ethan Frome” in 1911. After divorcing Teddy in 1913 Edith lived mainly in France. She reached the pinnacle of her career in 1921 as the first women ever awarded a Pulitzer Prize for her novel “The Age of Innocence.”

Edith Wharton’s stories about New York Society were included among the first volumes purchased for the shelves of Rhinelander’s new library. No doubt they were eagerly read by townsfolk who remained unaware of the author’s connection to the man with the mutton-chop whiskers.
