    1565 Was known as Doty. He took over his father's business which was delivering meat to butcher shops. He then open his own butcher shop on 162d Street just south of Northern Blvd in the Broadway section of Flushing, Queens, NY, NY. He had this store for many years. He was a member of St Kevin's Parish and lived at 47-31 189th St, Flushing, NY Attended Regis HS, NYC. He left school after his mother died. There are stories of Vincent always getting in trouble and his brother Frank getting him out of trouble. On one occasion, Vincent had a broken arm and was out in a boat. The boat either sank or capsized throwing Vincent into the water. He took the sling off his arm and swam ashore. Grace Klein remembers a visit to her grandfather's house in Flushing. Vincent took them out for a ride in the car. It was a wild ride and it scared the bejessus out of her. The only trouble that Vincent got in was for buyiny them ice cream just before dinner. Played the violin and later after he retired he took up the piano. He had a good repetoire of Irish music. He had a stroke and was diabled. After Gladys died, he moved to St Louis and lived with Kathy until his death. Grace, Daniel Vincent (I702)
     
    1566 Was Married 3 times. On the back of the naturalization certificate in pencil is written wife Nora. The certificate is dated 1922 which is after the death of Katherine Buckley. Bridget Monaghan was the third wife. My father allways referred to her as Aunt Bea. She survived John. After Kate died, John left his family and married a widow with 10 children in Boston. When she died he returned to New York. Jack and Vincent went to live with their sister May. Jack subsequently left to get his own room because he felt it was too hard on May who by that time was engaged to be married to Maurice Griffin. Frank went to live with an uncle and subsequently went out on his own. Their Mother's death and their father's leaving created friction between several of the children and their father. John worked for Swift Meat Packing Co in the slaughter houses of New York and when he lost his job there, he opened his own business as a supplier of meat to local butcher shops. After he died his son Vincent took over the business and ran it for many years. see P30 Daniel Vincent Grace He was the night manager at the packing company. The reason he lost his job was because he was nearing retirement age and this was a way for the company to save money on a pension. John lived in Flushing NY and in the basement of his house he raised birds and bred miniature Boston Terriers.

    1580 When she arrived in Boston, an aunt of hers helped her find a job. She seemed to like the families she worked for but life must have been hard. She slept in an unheated attic room, where the water in her pitcher froze at night and she slept so soundly that she put a tin plate under her alrm clock to make it noisier. she had contact with the children of her employers, learning how children were reared in wealthy American families; she applied these standards to her own children & grandchildren. Her manners & bearing were impecable and one would never have known of her humble origins because she had such beautiful manners. McCarthy, Julia Anne (I742)
     
    1581 WHERE IS GEORGE BURIED?
    Written for " Pickering Pitchforks" May-1994 by Alice Pickering Palladini
    "There is a huge unmarked boulder, in The Old Cemetery in Mendon, Ma. and many throughout the years have written George1 is buried under this boulder.. The reasoning being that George's land abutted the Old Cemetery and it was the natural location to inter his remains. Also other Aldrich's are buried near that site. However, in Uxbridge, Ma., (once part of Mendon, ) on the corner of Glendale Rd. & Aldrich St. is an old Cook/Aldrich Historic Cemetery."

    "At the entrance of this cemetery stands a Memorial stone & large plaque that was erected by descendants of the first George and Jacob2, and this plaque reads, " Buried Here ----------" George Aldrich, Jacob Aldrich, Seth Aldrich, Samuel Aldrich, lyman Aldrich, Sylvanus Bucklin Aldrich, Edward Irving Aldrich and that this Burying Ground was restored by Richard Stoddard Aldrich 1955; 8th in direct line of George Aldrich."

    "The question is, did the family of George drive 10 miles in 1683 to bury George in Uxbridge (then also Mendon) or did they go less than a half mile and inter his remains in the Old Cemetery, that abutted his land????"
    "This question will probably never be answered in our life time nor any other... I believe the Uxbridge Memorial plaque to be just that; a Memorial Plaque to George1 & Jacob2 erected by his descendant and his remains are probably under the boulder in the Old Cemetery in Mendon.. "

    In 'History of Northampton Massachusetts From Its Settlement in 1654' by James Russell Trumbull - Printed in Northampton in 1898 -
    "He was one of the early settlers of Northampton, arriving 1659. Townsman 20 times; He was the first citizen of Northampton to be elected deputy to the General Court, and 14 times between 1663 and 1682 was elected to that office, although not consecutively. He was Associate Justice of county court for 26 years; In 1662, he was authorized by the General Court to solemnize marriages, being the first person in that town to hold that responsible position. Frequently appointed by the Court to deal with Indians. He was chosen Lieutenant of the first military company ever organized here, when that was the office of highest rank to which the company, on account of its small number of men was entitled, and was in active service during King Philip's War and was at the same time a member of the military committee of the county. He supplied the commissary department to some extent during King Philip's Indian War and the Legislature ordered the Treasurer to pay him in 1676 'thirty-eight pounds, eighteen shillings for "Porke and bisket" delivered to the countrys use'.
    He helped to build the first grist mill and the first saw mill in the town. He was greatly interested in promoting the new settlement of Squakheag (Northfield) and is named as having served as town clerk at the second settlement of that place, although there is no evidence that he ever lived there. Several times he was chosen commissioner, with others, to determine disputed boundaries between Northampton and neighboring towns. His home lot, one of the largest, covered the north half of the Smith College property. Tradition states that here he built a block house upon this lot which was used for refuge during the Indian troubles. His dwelling house was burned in 1681, having been set on fire by a negro, as he averred in search of food. *
    In 1671, he was licensed to sell "wine, cider or liquor for a year". He had large grants of land in the meadows and elsewhere and purchased many acres in different parts of the town. All his lands, embracing nearly two hundred acres, with the exception of 7 3/4 acres, he disposed of before his death to his sons, reserving to himself an annuity of 24 pounds. There are no records remaining by which to judge of his private life and character. Only through the public duties he was called upon to perform can any estimate of him as a man and a citizen be reached. He was a hard worker, a pioneer in the best sense of the term. Enduring hardship with cheerfulness, meeting difficulty half way, conquering oftener than conquered, he stands one of the most prominent among the promoters of the plantation. Founder of a numerous family that has had worthy representatives during the entire history of the town, and whose descendants are scattered throughout the land, his name is honored and respected wherever it is found."
    * From The History of Northampton by J.R Trumbull p. 376-377 "Burning of William Clarke's House"
    The house of Lieut. William Clarke, situated very nearly on the ground now occupied by the main Smith College building, was burned on the night of July 14, 1681. It was built of logs, and Clarke and his wife were living in it at the time. A negro, named Jack, set the house on fire. He confessed the deed and pretended that it was done accidentally, while he was searching for food, swinging a burning brand to light his way. Jack did not belong in town; he was a servant to Samuel Wolcott of Wethersfield; was a vicious character, a forerunner of the great army of tramps now everywhere wearying the patience of the public, and had already been before the courts for other misdemeanors. His object undoubtedly, was robbery, and it is not probable that he went about the house searching for food even, with a lighted pine torch in his hands. Very likely after stealing whatever he could lay his hands upon, he set the house on fire to conceal the robbery, or from spite against William Clarke, who was at this time 72 years of age.  
    Clark, William (I5780)
     
    1595 William had moods and strange spelss; family folklore said that he fell when he was a young man and hit his head on the ice and was never the same afterwards. Whatever the origin, it was clear thar he was brilliant, well-read but unstable and undependable.He and Julia separated amny times but never divorced. He heard voices and accused her of trying to poisin him. McCarthy, William Henry (I741)
